News - Stittsville chiropractor Dr. Jim Moore and his wife Carol Moore, who is a registered massage therapist, are going head to head in an upcoming fundraising bicycle race. They will be racing against each other in the event called “Lap The Gats For Parkinson’s” which happens on Saturday, May 31 in the Gatineau Hills.

While the event will have an overall winner who completes the most laps of the 22 kilometer loop and who can make the ascent the fastest, the event also allows for participants to form their own competitions within the event. This is what Jim and Carol Moore have done as they are going to be racing against each other. And they are collecting dona-

tions for the event in the form of two dollar bets on who will win the race between the two of them. Currently Carol has received 159 bets in favour of her winning while Jim has received 143 bets. Whoever wins the race, Jim or Carol, will then pull a name from all the bets placed in their favour. The name drawn will win 25 percent of the total bets

placed, with the other 75 percent going to the Parkinson’s Research Consortium. With still time to go for more bets to be placed, the winner of any draw right now would win $149. All proceeds from the “Lap The Gats For Parkinson’s” bicycle race will be going to the Parkinson’s Research consortium. See BICYCLE, page 2

Members of the Goulbourn Male Chorus sing in a performance at the Bridlewood Trails Retirement Community on Eagleson Road last Sunday afternoon. The Goulbourn Male Chorus has concerts coming up this Saturday, May 3 and again on Saturday, May 10.

Goulbourn Male Chorus performs John Curry john.curry@metroland.com

News - One down. Two to go. The Goulbourn Male Chorus, under the direction of Robert Dueck of Stittsville, has three performances over three weekends. And the first of these, an appearance at the Bridlewood Trails Retirement Community on Eagleson Road south of Fernbank Road, saw the Chorus bring its male melodies and fourpart harmonies to about 50 residents in the residence’s lounge area last Sunday afternoon. Still to come are the Goulbourn Male Chorus’ community concert in support of the Trinity Presbyterian Church and its new church building this coming Saturday, May 3 at 7 p.m.

at the Kanata Community Christian Reformed Church on Castlefrank Road just south of Hazeldean Road in Kanata and then a benefit concert for the Stittsville Food Bank on Saturday, May 10 at 7 p.m. at St. Thomas Anglican Church on Stittsville Main Street in Stittsville. At last Sunday’s performance at the Bridlewood Trails Retirement Community, the Goulbourn Male Chorus lost no time in letting those in the audience know just who the group featuring white shirts and Ontario tartan ties was as the group opened with the rousing “We’re the men of the Chorus.” The Chorus followed up this opening piece with an a cappella rendition of “Brothers Sing On,” in which all four parts of the Chorus – high tenors, tenors, baritones and bass – dem-

onstrated their strengths. It was then into a series of sea shanty songs before the Chorus led two singalong numbers – “Jack Was Every Inch the Sailor” and “Land of the Silver Birch,” with audience members singing along thanks to words being provided via song sheets which were distributed. The Chorus’ “Men of Note” ensemble delivered an a cappella ditty called “Now Is The Month of May,” which Gary King, in announcing the tune on behalf of the ensemble, said was a hit in the United Kingdom about the year 1595. The ensemble sung each verse of the tune twice in madrigal fashion. And, really, what better way to express the emotion contained in a song and its verses as is customary in a madrigal vocal music composition than to

repeat the verse. The “Men of Note” followed this up with a rendition of the iconic Scottish tune “Loch Lomond.” You know, it’s the song about one person taking the high road and another taking the low road and so on. And so the performance continued, with the Male Chorus delivering melodies in the best male chorus tradition. Those attending the two upcoming concerts are in for a treat, that’s for sure. The Goulbourn Male Chorus was accompanied at this performance by pianist Tyson Chen who played on the black grand piano which is a highlight in the lounge area of the Bridlewood Trails Retirement Community on Eagleson Road in Kanata.

Internet now a necessity

M

any of us have the Internet in our pocket; an instant connection to news, email and, during an emergency, information that can even save lives. For others, the Internet is a distant concept. And not just in Third World countries â&#x20AC;&#x201C; here in Ottawa too. The cost of an Internet connection is more than some people can afford, despite the fact that highspeed connections are literally at their front door. Information is power, as well as a key element of a modern education. Without a decent connection to the worldwide web, people who are already behind the rest of Canadian society are destined to fall further behind. The children in homes without a fast connection are destined to fall behind their peers. It seems less likely they will get a chance to excel at school and beyond, which equals a massive waste of potential. A low-income advocacy group organized a march on April 17 to draw attention to the high cost of highspeed, a price tag that puts the Information Highway out of reach for many Canadians. The Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now is calling for high-speed Internet to be made available to Canadians for $10 a month. Given that the federal government regulates our telephone service, a more

affordable Internet is within reach if Parliament feels it is important. We pay taxes so that our libraries can share information with all residents. Why not a Canadian system to share the Internet with all Canadians? For this tech-savvy nation, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s within our control to make it happen. The federal government has made rural high-speed Internet a priority, which is commendable. That doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean urban users â&#x20AC;&#x201C; with high-speed connections available â&#x20AC;&#x201C; should be forgotten. Internet access should be treated the same as basic phone service, with controlled rates so low-income families can get connected. Ottawa libraries provide Internet access â&#x20AC;&#x201C; when they are open and if there is no lineup of other customers â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the same as having information on your kitchen table. Low-speed, dial-up connections are still available â&#x20AC;&#x201C; with a phone line â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a good way to research material on todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s image-heavy websites. ACORN has the right idea. Every Canadian should have high-speed access. And if their current finances mean they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford it, rates should be controlled. If Internet service providers wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t or canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make the cost affordable, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s up to all of us â&#x20AC;&#x201C; through our federal government â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to help offset costs so weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all on an equal footing.

sually the subject of voter turnout emerges briefly after elections, when it is discovered that two out of five of us didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bother to go to the polls. There is a brief period of handwringing and then the political world reverts to its normal pattern of evasion, distortion and character assassination. Now thanks, if that is the word, to the Fair Elections Act, we are having the discussion at a time when it can do some good. It is a serious problem: according to the Canadian Press, just over 60 per cent of eligible voters turned out in 2011, and among voters under the age of 30 the turnout was less than 40 per cent. Provincial and municipal turnout figures are usually worse. There is no shortage of explanations. Some blame the nasty tone of our federal and provincial politics. Some blame the lack of issues of relevance to younger voters. And some blame the voting system itself. The argument goes that either it is too difficult to vote, or young voters just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t care, or a combination of the two. The proposed solutions include asking the political parties to become more relevant. Godspeed on that one. On changes to the voting system, the one

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been hearing for years is that Canada should adopt the compulsory vote, a system used with apparent success in other countries, such as Australia. The likelihood of being fined would bring young people out to the polls and, the argument goes, the likelihood of going to the polls would cause them to pay more attention to the issues. The counter-arguments are familiar. First, non-voters are usually non-interested and non-informed. Do we really want more people like that voting? Second, we live in a free society. For better or worse, one of our freedoms is the freedom not to vote. If we discard the compulsory option, the alternative most commonly proposed is online voting. We do everything online now, the argument goes, so why not voting? Young

people are more likely to vote if they can do so online. The argument is made forcefully by comedian Rick Mercer in one of his CBC rants, quoted in the Huffington Post: â&#x20AC;&#x153;The government has a responsibility to make voting available wherever Canadians live. And yes, all Canadians reside in a riding but young Canadians, they live online. If we let them pay taxes there, let them vote there.â&#x20AC;? A couple of counter-arguments can be made. One comes from Ottawa Coun. Rick Chiarelli, quoted by CFRA, who used the example of the Heartbleed bug to point up the possible lack of security of online voting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always open to failure because the battle between security and hacking is a seesaw battle and it goes on like that,â&#x20AC;? Chiarelli said, and it is hard not to agree. The amount of attempted tampering in the last election indicates that any online voting system adopted will become a target, by those attempting to bias the result or perhaps just mess things up for fun. Even if online voting could be guaranteed to be secure, there would be still be reservations. It could be argued that putting voting online trivializes it, by putting it in the same

category as downloading a song. It should be thought of as a more serious matter than that. One way of observing that seriousness is to rise from your chair, put your shoes on and go out the door. Voting may or may not be a duty, but it is certainly a privilege. Polling places are almost always within walking distance. Many people are allowed time off from work to vote. Rides to and from are available. To treat the act of voting as some kind of hardship is a distortion of reality. If itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a hardship to vote, millions of people around the world would like some.

News - Just two days before the federal government announced some changes to its proposed Fair Elections Act, the federal minister in charge of the legislation was defending it wholeheartedly at a Stittsville meeting. The Hon. Pierre Poilievre, the Minister for Democratic Reform for the federal government, told the audience in response to a question at a Stittsville District Lions Club meeting which was open to the public that while he knew what critics were saying about his proposed legislation, he did not agree with them including comments by the Chief Electoral Officer. He maintained that elected politicians should be writing Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s legislation, adding that he was willing to defend all of the proposed bill before â&#x20AC;&#x153;the people.â&#x20AC;? In his prepared remarks, Minister Poilievre contented that the vast majority of the measures in the Fair Elections Act were not at all controversial in his view. In this regard, he cited the provision to track automated calls during election campaigns, the elimination of being able to leave funds to a political party in a will, the addition of another advanced polling day, and the elimination of the ban on election results out West until the polls there have closed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;On most of these points, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s broad agreement,â&#x20AC;? he stated. He admitted that the crux of the disagreement about the proposed legislation is over identification, claiming that the legislation allows 39 different ways for a voter to identify himself or herself. He said that he is open to changes and improvements in the legislation but that he will

not accept allowing a person to vote with no identification at all. Minister Poilievre, who recently joined the Manotick Lions Club, said he was looking forward to the Supreme Courtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s response on the federal governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposals to reform the Senate without opening the Constitution. As it turned out on Friday, the Supreme Court clarified that any reform changes including allowing provinces to conduct a vote for Senate candidates which would then be appointed by the Prime Minister required support from the provinces. Minister Poilievre said that Prime Minister Stephen Harper is trying to do everything that he can to make the Senate more accountable to Canadians, adding that the Senate should be elected by Canadians. But after Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Supreme Court assessments of the federal governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposals, Prime Minister Harper indicated that Senate reform or abolition was now off the table since there is no provincial government consensus on what should be done. With regard to the Fair Elections Act, last Friday Minister Poilievre proposed several changes to his initial proposed legislation. This included a change that would allow voters to produce identification that did not include an address, with the proviso that another voter can sign to verify the personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s address. Another change would be to allow the Chief Electoral Officer and the Commissioner of Canada Elections to communicate with Canadians on any matter. The initial proposed legislation had limited the Chief Electoral Officerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s communications with voters to information related to the time, date and other information about elections.

Great prices at spring book sale Special to the News

News - Book lovers – here come some books at great prices. The “A Good Read” book store at the Stittsville branch of the Ottawa Public Library will be holding its spring book sale this Saturday, May 3 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the library branch on Stittsville Main Street. And what a sale! All of the gently used books on sale will be going for half price but it depends on the price of the book. For instance, for one dollar, customers will get two books that are selling for one dollar. However, if a book has a two dollar price on it, then the customer will be able to buy two

such books (a $4 total) for just two dollars. But basically, it is a half price sale and that’s a really good deal since the books are already a great deal at their regular one or two dollar prices. All proceeds from this spring book sale will be directed by “A Good Read” book store back to the library to help purchase some of those “extras” that are not included in the regular library budget but which make the library a comfortable and great place to visit. “A Good Read” book store located at the Stittsville library branch is a good place for readers to visit, whether on book sale day or on another day. The book store always has a good selection of gently used books on sale.

What is the 2014 Zoning Review all about? Over 30 Zoning Reviews will take place throughout Ottawa in 2014. Why? In 2013, City Council approved new Official Plan policies to create a more liveable Ottawa. To put these policies into action, the Zoning By-law needs to be updated. The 2014 Zoning Review will make that happen. How? Zoning affects how land can be used on both public and private properties. Things like types of housing, shops, schools, industries, as well as building heights and building densities. The right zoning will make sure our streets and neighbourhoods develop in ways that encourage vibrant, liveable places for all to enjoy How will this affect me? Zoning changes will provide greater certainty for residents, developers, businesses and others, about what to expect when it comes to future development in the review areas.

Walking the Talk According to the 2011 National Household Survey, 68% of Ottawa residents drive a vehicle to work. Every day, people use vehicles to get to work, school, run errands, visit friends, and to take children to recreational activities. Although vehicles can be a quick form of transportation, did you know that in urban areas, walking for a distance of 500 meters or less is usually faster than using the car – and it is free and good for you. Car-centered living robs us of the chance to include physical activity into our daily lives. Every year, each Canadian makes an average of 2,000 car trips of less than three kilometers. Imagine how much healthier we would be if these short trips were replaced with an active mode of transportation, such as walking or cycling! May is Physical Activity Month and throughout the month, Ottawa Public Health is challenging residents to get active every day. A simple way is to walk if you are headed somewhere

that is 2 km or less. A 2 km walk is equal to thirty minutes of physical activity. If you do this 5 times per week, you will meet the 150 minutes of activity recommended for adults Using active forms of transportation not only improves our health, it can also help reduce vehicle emissions which have negative environmental and health effects.

Please join us for the Ottawa Walking Day Celebration on Tuesday May 13, 2014 from 9:30 a.m. - 10:45 a.m. at Ottawa City Hall located at 110 Laurier Avenue West. Bicycle parking is always free! There will be opportunities for networking, to listen to motivational speakers and to participate in guided walks along the canal. Register today! OttawaWalkingDay.Eventbrite.ca or for more information call: 613-580-6744 ext. 23514.

Ottawa Hospitals Keeping it Fresh Have you recently been to an Ottawa area hospital? Maybe you were a patient, visiting someone or even going in to work your shift? You may have noticed that the air you are breathing feels a little fresher! As members of the Smoke-Free Hospital Workgroup, local hospitals, including the Ottawa Hospital, The Queensway Carleton Hospital, the University of Ottawa Heart Institute, The Royal, Hôpital Montfort, CHEO and Ottawa Public Health are partnering to support patients, visitors and staff who smoke. Each hospital campus has supports in place to help patients and staff quit smoking or curb their cravings. Patients, staff and visitors can take advantage of various services offered such as one-on-one

counselling, group support, workshops and access to quit smoking medications. Recently, the hospitals partnered up to support their staff by offering the Fresh Air Challenge to those who want to quit smoking, help a co-worker quit or who simply want to remain smokefree. Nearly 250 hospital employees across all local hospitals participated in the challenge. Whether you are curious and want to know more about the hospital’s policy, what services could benefit you, or where to go if you choose to smoke, the Smoke-Free Hospital Workgroup has answers to your questions. Visit Smokefree-Sansfumee.ca to learn more… because we all breathe the same air. Let’s keep it Fresh Ottawa! Follow us on Twitter @OttawaHealth

‘What’s up Zak?’ musical at Stittsville United Church Special to the News

News - It will be Stittsville United Church like you have never seen it before. Indeed, you will think that you are in some Middle East city and that’s

just where you’ll be – the city of Jericho, known as the city of psalms. And to convey this, Stittsville United Church will be sprouting palm trees as well as sycamore trees for the presentation of the musical “What’s

at the front will be the very gates of Jericho. And at these gates will be merchants including a carpet merchant. “What’s up Zak?” is another in a series of musical productions which

have been staged at Stittsville United Church over the past eight years. This musical called “What’s up Zak?” is a production adapted from numerous skits, plays, musicals and the Bible itself, with the music involving a variety of styles from Broadway show tunes to modern day pop to gospel. The musical tells 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 for Zaccheaus. With the sanctuary at Stittsville United Church transformed into an oasis with its large city gate, city shops and palm and other trees, you will think that you are right there in Jericho. Objectives of this musical, like all of the musicals that have been presented at Stittsville Public School, are to nurture and build community, to allow for creativity and fun, to challenge people in the development of their talents, to be intergenerational, to provide for a short term ten week commitment and to tell a story with a message. You won’t want to miss this musical “What up Zak?” and you don’t have to, because it is being staged three times – this Saturday, May 3 at 7:30 p.m. and this Sunday, May 4 at 10 a.m. and against at 3 p.m. See you there!

Mayorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Report GOOD NEWS FOR OTTAWA By Jim Watson

JOHN BRUMMELL/METROLAND

Spring luncheon at Legion Hall At the spring luncheon hosted by the Ladies Auxiliary of the Stittsville Legion at the Stittsville Legion Hall on Stittsville Main Street in Stittsville last Sunday are, from left, Norma Cole, Rosemary Morin, Carole Herbert, Tina Rockburn and Barb Vantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Slot.

Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on at Stittsville Legion Barb Vantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Slot Special to the News

Building Permits Up Meanwhile, new statistics show that our economy is continuing to grow and we see new opportunities for job creation in the skilled trades sector. Many think of Ottawa as entirely a government town BUT AT A TIME WHEN THE &EDERAL 'OVERNMENT IS SHRINKING its workforce, Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s population is growing and our economy is diversifying. This growth means more demand for both residential and commercial buildings across our city. In 2013 that demand pushed our housing and construction project activity to have 20% construction applications than they did in 2012. In real terms, 2013 saw the City of Ottawa receive $2.4 billion worth of construction applications versus $2 billion in 2012. These ďŹ gures show that Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economy is moving along at a strong pace and that Ottawa is transforming itself for the better. At City Hall we recognize that growth at this level brings challenges to our cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s infrastructure and our ability to deliver services to all residents across Ottawa. But these are challenges that we work hard every day to meet. I am proud that we have built recreation centres in some of THECITYSFASTESTGROWINGNEIGHBOURHOODSANDEXTENDED our road, water and sewer networks so that every resident of Ottawa can enjoy all that our city has to offer (including great tap water) wherever they may live.

We are the proud recipient of two national awards this year, including the Workplace Instituteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Best Employers Award for 50-Plus Canadians and MediaCorp Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Top Employers for Young People.

Engaging Older Workers and Retirees One of only three organizations to receive this honour in 2014, our company was recognized for its innovative Prime Time Program. Through the initiative, we work to engage and retain the critical talent, knowledge and experience of our aging workers and retirees that help to contribute to our overall success.

Preparing the Leaders of Tomorrow At Hydro Ottawa, we make it a priority to provide high-quality opportunities for young people in order for them to gain valuable work experience and for the company to prepare for the workforce of tomorrow. We do this through initiatives like our summer student program, apprenticeships, career fairs, mentorship, training, and partnerships with local post-secondary institutions.

The Stittsville Legionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website can be found at www.rcl618.ca . EUCHRE WINNERS Garnet Vaughn had the menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s high score at the euchre on Tuesday afternoon, April 21 at the Legion Hall on Stittsville Main Street in Stittsville. Tony Bifolchi was the runner-up for the men. Peggy Manion had the ladies high score with Sheila Casagrande placing second. Bud Mannoly had the most lone hands while Lorraine Gillies had the low score. Dwain McGillvray had the hidden score.

Proud to be a leading employer for younger and older workers

Years ago, when I was the head of the Canadian Tourism Commission, I often ran into former Ottawa residents who were living abroad. Without fail, one of the things that always came up when talking about the things they missed about our city was our tap water. It sounds like a strange thing to miss about a city but it really ISTRUETHAT/TTAWAHASEXCEPTIONALLYGOODTAPWATER In fact, in 2013, the City of Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s drinking water system received a perfect score in Drinking Water System inspections performed by the Ministry of the Environment (MOE). The MOE inspections involved up to 14 different aspects of operations including drinking water quality, water quality monitoring programs and operator certiďŹ cation. A perfect score on this inspection reďŹ&#x201A;ects what many of us residents take for granted and what those who leave Ottawa realize quickly: Ottawa has some of the best tap water in the world.

Originally announced at the end of 2011, the Ottawa on the Move program has seen the advancement of many rural road resurfacing projects that were all originally scheduled to be resurfaced post-2014. These roads included Donnelly Drive, Ottawa Street, Flewellyn Road and King Street. That program now enters its final year. Last week, a Commence Work Order was issued for First Line Road (Bankfield Road to Roger Stevens Drive), Rideau Valley Drive South (Roger Stevens Drive to Dorack Drive), Church Street (McCordick Road to Lenida Street) and Mansfield Road (Conley Road to Munster Road).

May 5th Agriculture & Rural Affairs Committee Meeting Agriculture & Rural Affairs Committee will, once again, host its meeting in the rural area, this time at 6:00pm on Monday, May 5th at the West Carleton Community Complex at 5660 Carp Road.

The client service desk at Walter Baker Sports Centre is conducting a pilot project to offer expanded services from 8:00am to 8:00pm, Monday to Friday. Residents can now go to the Walter Baker Centre and pay their tax and water bills, obtain/renew animal licences and burn permits, apply for parking permits, pay parking tickets, among other thing. A complete list of services is available at Ottawa.ca. This pilot project is good news for Rideau-Goulbourn residents whose current options include the North Gower Client Service Centre on Thursdays or the Client Service Centres in Kanata and Centrepointe. However, those locations are only open until 4:00pm. This should help rural residents obtain the services they need more conveniently.

Carp Landfill Expansion Information Meeting A Community Information & Comment Session has been scheduled for Tuesday, May 6th from 6:30pm to 9:00pm at NeXT Restaurant, 6400 Hazeldean Road, Stittsville. Waste Management is hosting the meeting and presenting their proposed zoning. City planning staff will be in attendance in order to outline the process for zoning and public input, as well as to listen to comments and questions and to obtain names and contact information from those wishing further information on the application, or to be notified of further action in relation to the file. The proposed use will serve as an extension to the adjacent existing landfill located at 2301 Carp Road. It will allow for the facility to accommodate industrial and commercial waste. The proposed zoning will see an additional use permitted under the existing zonings to include ‘waste processing and transfer facility’ and ‘solid waste disposal facility’. The ultimate use would include a waste disposal facility, new vehicular entrance via Carp Road, a landscape buffer along Carp Road, infiltration basins, stormwater ponds, attendant booth, and weigh area, and public drop-off area. Existing buildings and parking are proposed to be retained.

After a six month hiatus from my Councillor for Hire initiative, I was back out in the workforce on April 15th spending an afternoon working with MK Pit Stop. For those of you unfamiliar with Councillor for Hire, it is something I try to do once a month where I spend a day with a local business or service provider in order to learn more about what they do and how they contribute to our communities. It is also an opportunity to walk in the shoes of the people I represent and learn any challenges they may have on a day to day basis. I began doing this in August of 2011. MK Pit Stop is a local business out of North Gower, owned and operated by Mark & Kirsten Mooney. They operate a mobile tire shop that can come to your home or business and, not only change your tires, but repair them, fill them, mount and balance them as well. They will also change your oil, replace your battery and even install your wiper blades. All of this takes place from the convenience of your laneway. They also happen to have contracts will several large businesses and the day I spent with them was at one of their larger clients, Dymon Self Storage. We were set up at the Dymon location on Walkley Road as one Dymon car after another drove up, had their winter tires removed, their summer tires installed, and drove off. In the few hours I was there, we easily serviced a dozen vehicles. I am, by no means, on my way to working for a NASCAR pit crew, but it was very interesting to work in this environment and see what Mark & Kirsten do every day. It was learning about great local businesses like MK Pit Stop that led to the Councillor for Hire initiative in the first place. I’d like to thank Mark & Kirsten for inviting me to spend time as their employee and learning about their exciting, new business in RideauGoulbourn. If you’d like to learn more about MK Pit Stop, please visit mkpitstop.ca.

News - It’s going to be “T” time at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church in Stittsville this Saturday, May 3. But it’s not the “tea” that you drink, although there should be some available during the half-time intermission break when dessert goodies and beverages will be served. Rather, “T” time at St. Andrew’s on Saturday, May 3 refers to a “Time, Talent and Treasures” fundraising live auction which will be taking place in the church hall. Colin McKeown of Stittsville, who is host of “The Fly Fisher” television show, will be the auctioneer for this live auction. Doors for the church hall will open at 6:30 p.m. with the auction getting underway at 7 p.m. And what an auction it is going to be as organizers out canvassing businesses in Stittsville and Kanata for donated items for the auction are receiving a most positive reception. “We have all kinds of really great stuff,” says Joan Watts, one of the organizers and canvassers. And what a variety! They will include not only items such as gift cards donated by businesses but also all kinds of items donated by the congregation such as homemade pies, furniture refinishing and babysitting services. Auction items include Adam Kittle snowblowing services for next winter valued at $400; a Senators jersey; a $400 gift certificate from Main Street Optical; two electric toothbrushes, a gift certificate for Willy’s Pizza; gift cards to Five Guys Restaurant, a $50

gift card from Bushtukah; deck stain and two brushes from Bonds Décor; fresh cut flowers valued at $25 from Pretty Pots Florist; a lawn mower tune-up valued at $140 by Ron Ireland; a crystal bowl from Kondruss Galleries valued at $60; a dog grooming gift certificate for $55 from Groomingdale’s; a ceiling light fixture valued at $80 from Marchand Electrical; three cubic yards of screened topsoil from Ron Moore Equipment Ltd.; a machine quilted crib size baby quilt from Deanne Longfield; a $50 gift certificate from Bistro 54 Restaurant; Gant sunglasses valued at $100 from Stittsville Optometry; one hour of ice time at the Bell Sensplex; eight crystal glasses from Stittsville Antiques and collectibles; a $40 gift certificate from Pottery Playhouse; a variety of CD’s with a value of $80 from CD Warehouse; an oil painting valued at $400 by Kevin Dodds; a will from Mark Arbique (lawyer); an oil painting by Elizabeth Lowden valued at $400; furniture refinishing by Geppy Walton; and a flowered blouse by Jones of New York valued at $110. And this is only a partial list of the myriad of items that will be up for grabs in this “Time, Talent and Treasures” live auction. Admission to this “Time, Talent and Treasures” auction will be $5 for adults and $3 for children. Everyone is welcome to attend but seating is fairly limited and early acquisition of tickets is recommended. Tickets are available from the church office at 613-831-1256 or online at office@ standrews-stittsville.ca or from members of the congregation.

Summer Student Position

‘T’ time is here!

The auction is being held to raise funds for the church’s long-anticipated addition that will make the church fully wheelchair accessible. Fundraising for this addition has been going on for a number of years now but it is hoped that this “Time, Talent and Treasures” auction will help push the fundraising campaign to its goal. St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church is located at the corner of Stittsville Main Street and Mulkins Street in Stittsville.

The Goulbourn Museum is looking for a post-secondary student to work 37.5 hours per week for 14 weeks at $11.00 per hour. Job duties include: developing and assisting with public programs, registering artefacts, and providing Museum tours. All candidates must be registered on the Young Canada Works (YCW) database. This position is subject to availability of funding through the YCW program.

On Tuesday, May 6th from 6:30pm to 9:00pm at NeXT Restaurant, 6400 Hazeldean Road, Waste Management is organizing the meeting and presenting their proposed zoning. City planning staff will be in attendance at that meeting; their role being to outline the process for zoning and public input, as well as to listen to comments and questions and to obtain names and contact information from those wishing further information on the application, or to be notified of further action in relation to the file. The City will be holding its own meeting on this topic in the future. The proposed use will serve as an extension to the adjacent existing use located at 2301 Carp Road. It will allow for the facility to accommodate industrial and commercial waste. The proposed zoning will see an additional use permitted under the existing zonings to include ‘waste processing and transfer facility’ and ‘solid waste disposal facility’. The ultimate use would include a waste disposal facility, new vehicular entrance via Carp Road, a landscape buffer along Carp Road, infiltration basins, stormwater ponds, attendant booth, and weigh area, and public drop-off area. Existing buildings and parking are proposed to be retained. Street sweeping The annual spring clean up includes sweeping all paved roads and hard surfaces, to remove debris and materials that have accumulated throughout the winter that could pose dangers to traffic, pedestrians/cyclists clog catch basins and impact river water quality. Crews work 24 hours a day to get the job done as quickly as possible to reduce the impact to residents and businesses. Please be patient. As we are just coming out of winter, the main focus has been flood control. Street sweeping will get done in time.

Candidates require excellent English language skills and computer competency. French language skills and knowledge of Adobe Creative Suite are assets. Job shifts include weekends and statutory holidays. There is no public transportation to the Museum site.

I would like to apologize for the traffic delay caused by the street sweeper on Thursday, April 17th. The normal process for Main Street is that it should be swept during evening hours, and not during the daytime hours. With the large road network to attend to and the debris left from our winter the City was anxious to start their spring cleaning.

Applications will be accepted by email or in-person until 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, May 7, 2014. Goulbourn Museum, 2064 Huntley Road, Stittsville, ON, K2S 1B8 goulbmus@rogers.com R0012671195-0501

Inside the branch, Sledge Hockey Eastern Ontario (SHEO) was showing a video about sledge hockey including scenes from years ago when sledge hockey was played on the frozen Rideau Canal in Ottawa. There were also sledge hockey sleds with wheels on them which youngsters could try out. Canadian sledge hockey Paralympian Marc Dorion was wearing his bronze medal which he won at the Paralympics in Sochi and which people at the opening could see and even touch. It was a sunny, albeit somewhat brisk, late April day, with a blue sky overhead but it allowed the grand opening ceremony and associated ribbon cutting to take place outside, just in front of the new branch. “What a beautiful day in Stittsville,” BMO Bank of Montreal branch manager Michael Posternak proclaimed as he began the grand opening ceremony a few minutes before 12 noon. BMO Bank of Montreal regional vice-president Ernie Schroeder, in his remarks at the grand opening, noted that it was a landmark event as it marked BMO Bank of Montreal’s first footprint in the Stittsville community. He mentioned BMO Bank of Montreal’s commitment to community including its hosting of the May 4th “Walk So Kids Can Talk” 5K walk in support of the Kids Help Phone which will take place in communities across Canada including in Ottawa. He said that this new branch is innovative and provides a great customer experience, adding that BMO Bank of Montreal believes in the Stittsville community. This commitment to the Stittsville community was shown next when a donation of $3,500 was made to the Stittsville Village Association to help it with the hosting of four major community events – Art in the Park, Canada Day celebrations, Villagefest and the Christmas Parade of Lights. This donation to the SVA was followed up by another donation, this time $500 to Sledge Hockey Eastern Ontario (SHEO). Receiving the donation on behalf of SHEO were former South Carleton High School student Tyrone

Henry of Stittsville, a member of the sledge hockey national developmental team as well as Nathan Sparks, a seven year old student at Huntley Centennial Public School in Carp who has been playing sledge hockey since he was three years old and has a dream of playing for Canada’s national team, and also Marc Dorion, a member of Canada’s national team and bronze medal winner at the Sochi Paralymics. Carleton-Mississippi Mills MPP Jack MacLaren, in his remarks at the grand opening, noted that Stittsville was a growing community which needed the financial services offered by banks like BMO Bank of Montreal. He noted that the branch creates jobs in the community and he also praised BMO Bank of Montreal’s commitment to the community. City of Ottawa mayor Jim Watson, speaking at the grand opening, noted that the bank was another new business opening in Stittsville, a community that is experiencing amazing growth. Along with councillor Qadri, he presented the bank with a certificate from the city marking the branch’s grand opening. A formal ribbon cutting of a blue ribbon stretched in front of the branch signaled the official grand opening of the branch. BMO Bank of Montreal has invested $1.7 million in establishing this new branch on Hazeldean Road in Stittsville. It’s a full service banking branch which offers customers extended banking hours as well as a variety of financial services. Conveniences at the branch include a coin counter which is a simple-to-use kiosk which counts loose change; two ATM’s including a drive-thru ATM; services provided in 11 different languages; a 24 hour depository for afterhours use by small business; an electronic vault attendant which allows self-serve access to safety deposit boxes; and barrier free access. “Our branch is equipped with state-of-theart technologies and an open concept design which makes it easy for us to provide an excellent customer experience,” branch manager Michael Posternak said. It is the first BMO Bank of Montreal branch in the city of Ottawa which is open seven days a week. This Hazeldean Road branch opened on Monday, Feb. 3 earlier this year but the grand

opening celebration was delayed until last Sunday. BMO Bank of Montreal, originally founded

in 1817, offers a range of retail banking, wealth management and investment banking products and services to over 12 million costumers.

West Ottawa Ladies Chorus sings about spring and love John Curry john.curry@metroland.com

News - Spring and love often go hand in hand and both were in evidence at the “A Medley of Melodies” spring concert presented by the West Ottawa Ladies Chorus last Saturday evening. The first part of the concert, which was held at St. Paul’s Anglican Church on Young Road off Hazeldean Road in Kanata, included a group of so-called “Spring Songs” including “A Day in the Life of the Sun” which painted a picture of the sun as it moves from dawn to sunset in a day, “We Celebrate the birth of Spring,” “Daffodils,” “The Wind,” and an audience singalong tune “When It’s Springtime in the Rockies.” And then love came along in the second part of the concert, with a host of songs about love. So you heard The Gershwin hit “The Man I

Love,” “Sugartime” which was a hit for the McGuire Sisters, the French “Chanson D’Amour,” “Going to the Chapel” (aka Chapel of Love) which was a peppy hit by The Dixie Cps in 1964, “Oh Dear! What Can the Matter Be” and an audience singalong tune “In The Good Old Summertime,” a love story if there ever was one. Just listen to the lyrics: “Strolling thro’ the shady lanes/With your baby mine” and “She’s your tootsie wootsie/In the good old summertime.” But there was more than just songs of spring and love in this concert. The concert opened with the ladies marching in from the rear of the church, singing the “Happy Wanderer” and followed this up with the peppy tune “Pick-a-Bale of Concert.” The ladies wore white blouses enhanced with a floral adornment – some green, some red and some yellow.

Then came a couple of Canadian songs, one (“All the Little Rivers of Canada”) listing many of the rivers of Canada while the other was the Canadian classic “Four Strong Winds” made famous by the duo of Ian and Sylvia. One of the most intriguing musical offerings by the West Ottawa Ladies Chorus was the “Echo Song,” an early Italian madrigal where a small ensemble sings the echo to the main chorus. In this case, an ensemble from the main chorus sang in echo responses at the rear of the church as the main chorus led the way at the front. And there was musical fun as the second half began with the song “Polly, Wolly, Doodle,” a song first published in 1880 and which great popularity in the 1930’s, with Shirley Temple singing it in the 1935 film “The Littlest Rebel” and with the song being prominent in the 1938 Best Picture “You Can’t Take It With

You,” directed by Frank Capra. And the West Ottawa Ladies Chorus continued to show its humourous side as it ended the concert with “Give Me A Choral Medley,” a song known as a singer’s spoof which included a medley of favourite choral songs, with the ladies ending in a feigned sleep. The concert resulted in a standing ovation from the audience. The West Ottawa Ladies Chorus, under the direction of Robert Dueck of Stittsville with Eliana Kurilov as its accompanist, originated back in 2011 when a group of lady singers were recruited by Mr. Dueck to be guest performers at the Christmas concert of the Goulbourn Male Chorus. This led to requests that the group become permanent and in May 2011, 12 ladies sang in the Goulbourn male Chorus’ spring concert. It was these ladies who formed the core of the West Ottawa Ladies Chorus.

Since then, the chorus has continued to grow and perform in the community. Members of the West Ottawa Ladies Chorus at present include Barbara Bottriell, Debbie Trouten, Irene Moore, Kelly Lawson, Lorraine Harker, Marlene van HasseltGorksi, Maxine Mercer, Nicole Lahey, Sharon Neill, Vivian Latulippe, Beth Ronaghan, Ingrid Gemmell, Jacqueline Sanders, Linda Noble, Lynne Small, Monique Tougas, Reta Hamilton, Shelley McLeod, Vivian McLean, Bev Armbruster, Ingrid Shantz, Janet Ramsahoye, Liz Mevel, Margaret Peeren, Mary March, Nancy Hayley, Ruth Sword and Taisia Smellie. Serving on the executive of the West Ottawa Ladies Chorus this year are Nancy Hayley as chair, Vivian Latulippe as vice chair, Jacqueline Sanders as secretary, Reta Hamilton as treasurer and Mary March as events coordinator.

Charles Valois performs at Gaia Java coffee shop Special to the News

News - He has recorded three solo CD’s. And those at the Friday music evening at the Gaia Java Coffee Company shop in Stittsville last Friday got to experience music as played by this recording artist who goes by the name Charles Valois. Born in Stittsville as Charles Hoppner, he first picked up a guitar at the age of ten. His first band called “Hester” performed all over the city.

After a stint in Toronto, he adopted the stage name Charles Valois. He has been promoting his most recent CD “The Ghost Districts” via intimate acoustic guitar performances. At his Gaia Java appearance last Friday, Charles opened with a set of all acoustic David Bowie covers which he followed up with other acoustic tunes including some of his own new compositions. Charles has appeared at the Gaia Java coffee shop previously, appearing with Geoff Dig-

nam. Charles Valois’ website can be found at www.charlesvalois.bandcamp.com . The Gaia Java coffee shop at the Stittsville Shopping Centre (Shoppers Drug Mart plaza) holds a Friday music evening every Friday starting at 7 p.m.

There is free admission at these Friday music evenings although early arrival is recommended for best seating. This coming Friday, May 2, the performers will be Justin Orok and Michael Henley which will present a program of guitar and trumpet jazz standards.

Can the suburbs work better? Laura Mueller

laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - Developers say the city isn’t really reaching its intensification goals in the suburbs, even if homes seem more densely packed. While houses might be crammed closer together, it doesn’t mean space in the entire community is well-used, said Frank Cairo of Caivan Communities, one of the developers that participated in a forum discussion on how to build better suburbs on April 24. Caivan Communities is one of the firm’s trying to develop the so-called western development lands in Richmond. The event brought together a group of five developers and city councillors in a panel format to air concerns and ideas about how to make suburban development work better. A good 70 per cent of Ottawa’s “urban” residents live in the suburbs, said Alain Miguelez, the city’s program manager of intensification and zoning, and tremendous growth in the suburbs is highlighting the need to fix up how communities outside the Greenbelt are designed. Half the land in a new suburban community is written off before developers begin laying out where the homes go, said Rob Pierce, land development director for Monarch. “It makes it hard to hit those intensification targets,” he said. “We’re doing our parts ... need to look at the other stakeholders and how they can use their land more efficiently.” Infighting and “turf wars” between utility agencies and other players vying for land in the suburbs, such as schools and the city’s parks department, often lead to a bloated amount of public space set aside for all those elements, said Pierre Dufresne, president of the Greater Ottawa Home Builders’ Association and vice president with Tartan Homes, who also participated in the discussion. “When we take a piece of land and more than 32 Stittsville News EMC - Thursday, May 1, 2014

50 per cent of it is provided for other interests before the first house is built, it limits our ability to meet the intensification policies in the (city’s) Official Plan to the extent we otherwise could.” Nitty-gritty topics like where to place hydro boxes on lawns and how wide roads should be are some of the topics that will help the city drill down to create better standards for the elements it requires when new suburban communities are built. The planning committee will receive a report on “guiding principles” for the Building Better Suburbs project at its meeting on May 13. The overall project has been extended into the fall – it was supposed to wrap up before the summer – and a final report is expected in November. There will be another public forum in the fall where residents can view and comment on the suggested changes before they go to the planning committee for final approval, said Lee Anne Snedden, the city’s manager of policy development and urban design. Initial public consultations happened last fall. Developers are happy to be involved in the process because in the case of building new communities, they serve as the main voice for consumers and future residents, Cairo said. Discussion at the forum indicated the city is now more willing to look at things like joining city parks with schoolyards. Dufresne also suggested looking at putting stormwater management ponds in parks as a natural feature, instead of finding other additional space for the ponds. That would be a throwback to the way it used to work before amalgamation, and developers welcome that, he said. The old city halls were smaller and developers could work more directly with city staff across the different departments, he said. “There are barriers between us now to be able to resolve these issues,” Dufresne said.

All Work and No Play: Ontario’s Retirement Crisis A Metroland Special Series: Part 1

Can you afford to retire?

Lewis, a former financial services officer in the banking industry, is part of Ontario’s looming pension crisis — Baby Boomers and future generations who are in jeopardy of living in poverty as a result of an increased life expectancy and a lack of financial foresight. Lewis said he made a generous salary in commercial services. But, he never had a pension plan outside of CPP. He and his wife Deanna live in a semi-detached home in Erin Mills, which they are still paying a mortgage on. The couple have some retirement savings put away in the form of Registered Retirement Savings Plans (RRSPs). “But if I could go back, I would have definitely looked for a work pension plan, not much I can do about that now,” she said. According to the Ontario government, less than 35 per cent of workers in the province have a pension plan at work, while only 28 per cent of private sector workers belong to a pension plan. Without a proper fix to Canada’s pension system, many middleincome earners risk retiring without a fiscal safety net.

would depend on individual contribution and on investments returns the fund generates. Critics of that option, however, counter that unlike CPP, PRPPs won’t require employers to contribute anything. On top of that, there are concerns a large number of Canadians could choose not to buy into the plan. Some question whether people who now don’t currently contribute to an RRSP would want to contribute to a voluntary plan. At a time when traditional company pensions are rapidly disappearing, and CPP benefits are capped annually at $12,000, there is agreed sentiment that doing nothing will leave millions of middle-class earners vulnerable in retirement years. Calls by some for the government to prop up the federal program have ultimately fallen on deaf ears. Policymakers are nervous about declining savings, increased household debt and an overheated housing market. Frustrated by federal footdragging, the province is drafting its own vision for an Ontario Pension Plan to supplement the CPP.

News - If you’re enrolled in a pension plan, chances are your money is safe. Maybe. Perry Quinton, vicepresident of marketing at Investor Education Fund (IEF), a non-profit organization founded by the Ontario Securities Commission, says anyone who is either looking for

work or already employed should view privatelyfunded pension plans as a necessity. “It can be free money that if you don’t sign up for it, you’re not going to get it,” she says. “Any kind of incentive that forces you to save money is brilliant.” See NO GUARANTEES, page 41

News - No one ever said growing old in Ontario would be easy. Take for instance, the increased health concerns, intensified wrinkles and the whole notion that there’s less time ahead of you than behind you. But, at least we have our retirement years to look forward too, right? Retirement is the time in life when we put away the work boots and enjoy life — taking trips to tropic locations, maybe touring Europe, or finally buying that luxury car we could never afford. And, of course, we can spend more time with family. It’s the life we’ve dreamed of, as promised by those popular Freedom 55 and Pacific Life insurance company commercials. Well, Deaven Lewis didn’t get that memo. Even at the ripe old age of 66, the Malton father of two can only dream of retirement. “Is that a joke?” he replies, when asked if she has any plans to give up his part-time job at the Metro grocery store in Brampton. “If I retire now, I’ll be living on beans, water and Kraft Dinner. At least this job allows me a little disposable income.”

to CPP with the goal of substantially raising CPP pension payments and doubling the current maximum yearly payout of $12,000. Funding such an expansion of the CPP would require a hike to premiums paid by workers and employers. The Canadian Labour Congress argues that even a modest increase to CPP could solve the pension crisis. A worker earning $47,200 or more per year, for example, could gradually double future CPP benefits with an initial premium increase of 9 cents an hour, or $3.57 a week. However, critics of this option, included among them the Canadian Federation of Independent Business, as well as Quebec and Alberta, and to some extent the federal government, have deemed mandatory increases a “job killer.” Calling it an added tax on business, opponents say a mandatory pension plan could put the province at a competitive disadvantage. The other pension fix being touted is a voluntary plan called Pooled Registered Pension Plans (PRPP). Under PRPPs, the self-employed or employees of companies without pension plans, could make voluntary contributions to a professionally managed pooled fund. The payout

“The cost of not doing anything is the real measure here,” said Ontario Finance Minister Charles Sousa. “Imagine the tsunami of retirees that are going to come up the system, relying on CPP and not having anything much more to support them. It’s going to be a huge cost to our social programs.” There is growing consensus in Canada that many middle-income workers without a workplace pension plan will face a lower standard of living in their retirement years. However, what many financial and government experts can’t agree on is how to solve this looming problem. “I really can’t believe people expect to get by on just CPP,” said Susan Eng, vice-president for Advocacy at the Canadian Association of Retired Persons (CARP), the country’s foremost advocacy group for seniors. “They (CPP) were always meant to provide a base so that the private sector and private savings can fill in the gap. CPP just doesn’t provide enough to live on.” Several ideas have been floated in recent months on how to address the shortfall in retirement savings. One solution would see an increase in mandatory contributions

No guarantees in the world of pensions

How will you fund your retirement?

Connected to your community

Can you afford to retire?

Martin will contribute to a types of private pension plans offered in Ontario: â&#x20AC;˘ a defined benefit pension plan, where the employer technical panel comprised of promises a specified monthly benefit on retirement that pension experts. Experts suggest that is pre-determined by a formula. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s up to the employer to deliver what they promised when you retire. If a plan individuals require 50-70 per doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have enough money, the employer will have to cent of their pre-retirement income to maintain their put more money into the fund. â&#x20AC;˘ a defined contribution pension plan or Group standard of living in retirement. Registered Retirement Savings Plan (Group RRSP), in Most Ontarians canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t save which both you and your employer can put money into enough to meet that target. At best, with CPP and Old Age the plan. In either case, a trust company or insurance company Security combined, one can holds this money in a separate account for you. You, not the company, own that money. Even if your employer goes bankrupt, your money is safe. Of course, you can always lose some or all of your money if the market crashes or if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t invest it wisely, the IEF says. Your pension plan should not run out of money if the employer manages the fund properly, Quinton says. Even if the worst happens, some of your pension savings may be protected. In Ontario, most employers of defined benefit plans pay a yearly fee to Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pensions Benefits Guarantee Fund. This fund insures the first $1,000 of an employeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s monthly pension in case the employer goes bankrupt. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the only fund of this type in Canada. However, not even this unique fund will guarantee that an employee gets all of his/her promised pension, Quinton says. Should an employee be fired or choose to leave the company, depending on the type of plan, he/she may have the option of transferring their pension earnings into another plan, Quinton says. They could also leave it where it is and collect at time of retirement or transfer into a locked-in retirement savings account (LIRA), which works much like an RRSP.

earn about $18,000 annually post-retirement. Most Ontarians earn about $9,000 from CPP and Old Age Security, she said, with the average monthly payout less than $600. Chris Buttigieg, senior manager, Wealth Planning Strategy for BMO Financial Group, says sole dependence on CPP after retirement is a dire mistake. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Given the amount that the CPP ... pays out, Canadians should not rely on them as a primary source of income to fund their retirement,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rather, they should

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Life was a lot easier 20 years ago.â&#x20AC;? Eng is calling on Ontario to make workplace pension plans mandatory. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It has to come into existence and somebody has to create it,â&#x20AC;? she said. Details on an Ontario plan still need to be ironed out. The plan though would likely be run by an independent organization at arms-length from the provincial government. It would also use a defined contribution system that allows workers the choice to opt out. Sousa is keen on the idea of a mandatory system with an optout clause, similar to whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s being done in Quebec and also in other countries.

consider the CPP â&#x20AC;Ś to be a supplementary component of their overall retirement income solution and focus on creating their very own personal pension plan by contributing to an RRSP on a regular basis.â&#x20AC;? Others are counting on the sale of a home as a way to fund retirement. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exactly what Sung Joo Park, a self-employed caterer, did after she turned 60. Park, 76, lives in a rented apartment in Mississauga. Her husband, Jong Joo Park, 82, died earlier this year. Neither one of them had a private pension plan.

Blood donor clinic coming up in Richmond Special to the News

To book an appointment for this community blood donor clinic, visit the website www.blood.ca or call 1888-2DONATE (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.

Stittsville artist Warren Blackburn displays his paintings of buildings along Hazeldean Road in Stittsville, two of which are no longer there and a third (far left) which has been designated as a heritage structure by the city of Ottawa.

Paintings preserve buildings John Curry john.curry@metroland.com

News - They may be gone but thanks to the artistry of Warren Blackburn o Stittsville, the images of two farm homes along Hazeldean Road live on. And the images of two other historic buildings still standing along Hazeldean Road also have been preserved by artist Blackburn. His efforts mean that these Hazeldean Road landmark buildings which have been demolished have been preserved in paintings where

demolitions never happen – an image is preserved forever. Mr. Blackburn has done two paintings of the Robert H. Grant farm house which was demllished in making way for the Grant Crossing shopping area which now occupies the site. He had done a painting of the Robert H. Grant farm house in wintertime and later followed this up with a painting of the farm house in a summertime scene, with a plowed field in the foreground.

GET ALL MEMBERS OF THE FAMILY INVOLVED IN YOUR CHARITABLE GIVING the perfect amount to leave children is enough “money so that they would feel they could do anything, but not so much that they could do nothing. ” One of the most challenging estate planning questions that parents have to wrestle with is how much of their estate should they leave to their children. As Warren Buffet once famously remarked,

Once parents have provided an appropriate amount of financial support to their children, they are often motivated to give back to the community. An increasing number of Canadian families are establishing family foundations in order to encourage all family members to get involved in the family’s charitable giving.

A private foundation is particularly well-suited to a family situation. Family members can be directors or trustees of the foundation and play an active role in deciding how funds will be managed and what charities will be supported by the foundation. Families find that the foundation keeps the family connected and parents can pass along their beliefs and values to children and grandchildren.

Holy Humour Sunday at St. Paulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s United Church John Curry john.curry@metroland.com

News - A good laugh can be make you feel good. And we frequently laugh when we are happy. So why shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the first Sunday after Easter be filled with laugher. After all, it should be a time of happiness as Christians around the world celebrate Christâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resurrection, an act born out of Jesusâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; love for all mankind. And so thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just what the first Sunday after Easter is at St. Paulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s United Church in Richmond â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a time of laugher and joy. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s called Holy Humour Sunday. To get people in the mood of having a good time, members of the congregation this year were urged to wear pyjamas to church last Sunday. And as a result, many did show up in their â&#x20AC;&#x153;jammies,â&#x20AC;? with lots of bathrobes in evidence.

To add further to the mood of relaxing with friends on a Sunday morning, the church even offered coffee right at the back of the worship area. So, at any time, members of the congregation were welcome to leave their seats and go back and pour themselves a cup of morning coffee. And while the minister Rev. Carla Van Delen conducted a service with gospel readings, a meditation and prayer, she also injected humour into the morning. She began at the childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time in the service when she led off with some jokes such as â&#x20AC;&#x153;What are prehistoric monsters called when they are sleeping?â&#x20AC;? (Answer: Dinasnores) and â&#x20AC;&#x153;â&#x20AC;?What is the fruitiest class at school? (Answer: History because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s full of dates). And what Holy Humour Sunday would be complete without a knock-knock joke or two, such as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Knock, knock! Whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s there? Cows

go! Cows go who? No, cows go moo!â&#x20AC;? Rev. Van Delen reminded those at the Holy Humour Sunday service that God is always with people both when they are laughing as well as when they are crying. Already Rev. Van Delen has determined a theme for next yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Holy Humour Sunday. Whereas this year members of the congregation were encouraged to wear their pjâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s or sleepwear to set the stage for Holy Humour Sunday, next year it was be a backwards clothing day â&#x20AC;&#x201C; yes, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right, members of the congregation will be asked to wear their clothes backwards when they come to church on Holy Humour Sunday next year. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just another way of getting everyone smiling and happy even before the humour starts flowing in the service. The idea of setting aside one Sunday each year to celebrate Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gift of laughter and joy has a long history in many congregations

around the world. Holy Humour Sunday, which is also known in some congregations as Laughter Sunday, Bright Sunday and Hilarity Sunday, among other names, has its roots in several different Christian traditions. Churches in 15th century Bavaria, for instance, used to celebrate the Sunday after Easter as Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Joke or the Easter Laugh Sunday. Priests then would deliberately include amusing stories and jokes in their sermons to make the faithful laugh. After the service, people would play practical jokes on one another and tell funny stories. It was all meant to be a way of celebrating the resurrection of Christ. About 25 years ago, some churches began to resurrect some of these Christian traditions related to Holy Humour Sunday as a way of celebrating the grace and mercy of God through the gift of laugher and joy.

Stittsville artist has painted Hazeldean Road buildings Continued from page 43

This grant farm house has something of a connection to Mr. Blackburn as his wife Audrey taught kindergarten at Grant Public School at Britannia from 1974 to 1988 when it closed. This Grant Public School was built and opened as a Continuation School when Robert H. Grant was the Ontario Minister of Education from 1919-1923. Besides doing these two paintings of the now-disappeared Robert H. Grant farm house, Mr. Blackburn also has done paintings of the former J.C. Bradley white farm house which was located a little farther east on Hazeldean Road than the Grant farm house but is now gone as well and also of the Bradley/Craig red brick

farm house on the south side of Hazeldean Road across from the Grant Crossing shopping area. This Bradley/Craig farm house has been designated a heritage structure by the city of Ottawa, along with its adjacent red barn. Mr. Blackburn has also done a painting of Cabottoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Restaurant building (the former Chequers Restaurant and, historically Kempâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tavern) on Hazeldean Road at Poole Creek. One day Mr. Blackburn stopped in to the restaurant to show it to the owner and, lo and behold, it was purchased and now hangs inside the front door at the restaurant. Mr. Blackburn enjoys painting heritage or stone buildings or structures as evidenced not only by his painting of

Cabottoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s but also of paintings of such sites as the five-arch stone bridge at Pakenham and the General Store at Pakenham. He has done a number of paintings of buildings but he also does other subjects such as animals. When he started out painting some of the buildings along Hazeldean Road, he did not realize that they would be torn down and removed from the landscape. He takes photographs of scenes and then works from the photographs in doing a painting. He works mostly in oils although he does acrylics as well.

Trio shares wartime memories John Curry

john.curry@metroland.com

News - It was wartime memories from three who had lived through the years of World War Two. They had been there, with two serving in the military and one as a young British woman whose life in her idyllic community was changed by an influx of soldiers and the threat of German bombs. Those attending the annual general meeting of the Goulbourn Museum heard brief accounts of the personal stories related to the Second World War from these three guest speakers – Sandy Mutch, Joy Crozier and Bill Mountain. This year marks the 75th anniversary of the start of the Second World War. SUE WOODFORD/GOULBOURN MUSEUM Mr. Mutch, who was born in 1920, told how he had enGuest speakers at the annual general meeting of the Goulbourn listed in March 1940, being shipped overseas a year later Museum last Saturday are, from left, Bill Mountain, Joy Crozier and where he eventually became a Lancaster bomber pilot and Sandy Mutch. flew sorties over Germany.

as a crack navigational crew and hence his plane would lead groups of 100 or more aircraft on these bombing expeditions. He acknowledged that the bombing of Germany did tie up German guns and resources and hence helped shorten the war but he noted that the bombing as such did not end the war. He said that problems with the bombing included the inability of the air crews to find the targets with precision and the fact that the bombs themselves were not big enough to cause the devastation required to end the war. Mr. Mutch himself took advantage of the government’s offer of free university education following the war and he attended the University of Toronto, graduating in 1951 with a Masters Degree. He expressed his dismay about how current military veterans are not receiving the high class treatment that he and other World War Two servicemen received. Joy Crozier, who is turning 90 this week, having been born in England in 1924, told how her life in her beloved home community in England changed dramatically when the Second World War broke out. Aldershot, the so-called Home of the British Army with service as a garrison town dating back to the time of the Crimean War in the 1850’s, was nearby, exposing the teenage Joy and her family not only to an influx of soldiers but also to German bombers which would drop their bombs on their community if unable to reach the military base. A number in her community died from such bombing and she knew them all. Ms. Crozier told how her family had an air raid shelter in their garden but her fear of spiders kept her away from it. As a result, her father built a reinforced area under the stairs of the family home where she admits that the family spent many nights during the war. With all of the local men gone off to wartime service, local girls were overrun by soldiers wanting a date. But she said that to get a date with her, a soldier had to have a lot of sports as she loved sports as a young girl and played every one that she could. Archie Crozier, whom she eventually married, was athletic and also persistent, staying in England for an extra year to try to convince Joy to marry him. She consistently turned him down unless he agreed to stay in England but eventually capitulated and they were married on a week’s notice. She and Archie moved to Canada. She admitted that she did not like Canada when she first arrived but says that now that has changed as she loves Canada. Bill Mountain, in his remarks at this Goulbourn Museum annual general meeting, marveled at how young he and others were in the Bomber Command air crews. His own seven-member crew in 1944 consisted of himself, a 19 year old pilot, as well as a 19 year old flight engineer. He said that when he thinks about his sons and a grandson at age 19, he wonders how these young 19 year olds including himself did what they did in World War Two. His crew, which included five Canadians and two British, flew a total of 32 missions over Europe. He then became an instructor for nine months before being discharged and taking up the government’s offer of free university. He spent eight years at university, all paid for by the government, emerging at the age of 30 with his doctorate. But this offer of free university education was not taken up by all returning veterans. He told of others who returned, married and took jobs. Unfortunately, he knew of three like this who ended up as alcoholics. He admitted that the missions that he flew over Europe were dangerous, particularly due to possible attacks by German planes as the bombers dropped their bombs. He recalled one mission where 13 bombers were shot down, with each plane and its seven-member crew plummeting to the ground.

At the annual general meeting, a bylaw change was approved that makes meetings of the Board of Directors of the Goulbourn Museum open meetings which any interested persons can attend. The Museum’s Board of Directors usually meets on the second Friday morning of the month. In her report at the annual general meeting, Museum Board chair Linda Preston noted that the Museum attracted almost 12,000 visitors in 2013 including both onsite visitors and program participants.

Sports - The weather was less than ideal – cold and wet – but it did not deter 91 teams comprising a total of 150 paddlers from taking part in last Saturday’s annual Upper Jock River Canoe/Kayak Race. This year’s race was organized by Gaetan Plourde and Ian Mockett, who came forward upon hearing the race would be cancelled and offered to organize it, taking over from longtime organizer John Hiley. Backed up by a team of volunteers and the dedicated participants who first endured a twoweek delay in the race date due to a late spring and who then did not let the cold and wet keep them from taking part in the annual event, Gaetan and Ian turned the potential cancelled even into one of the most successful in recent years. The 91 teams and 150 paddlers compares well with the annual numbers for this spring tradition which dates back to 1996. Normally the race attracts anywhere between 80 and 140 entrants. Gaetan and Ian are now looking forward to next year’s event, hoping to improve on some things and even implement some new ideas. Sponsors of this year’s Upper Jock River Canoe/Kayak Race include Bakers Beans Village Café of Richmond; Golden Triangle Signs of Prospect; Anytime fitness of Kanata; G&I Automotive of Kanata; and Jenda Paddle Sports of Osgoode. In the kayak male category, Robert Ross won the class with a time of one hour, two minutes and 23 seconds. Dan Mallett finished in second in this class, just one minute and 23 seconds behind the winner. Tim Laprade was third in this class, just 14 seconds behind Dan Mallett in second place. In the kayak female category, Liz Elton won with a time of one hour, 17 minutes and 16 seconds. Laurie Baker was placed second while Shei-

lah MacDonald was third. In the mixed recreational class, Ashley Raymond and Bruce Raymond covered the 12.6 kilometer long course from Munster Sideroad to Jock River Park in Richmond in a time of one hour, nine minutes and 48 seconds. This was nearly three minutes ahead of the second place duo of Matt Godsoe and Krysta Matthews. John Burrows and Carolyn Odecki finished in third place. In the 17 foot open class, Harold Walker and Pierre Lavictoire covered the course in a speedy one hour, two minutes and eight seconds. Second place went to Christopher Weber and Bonnie Pankiw in a time or one hour, two minutes and 47 seconds. Mike Stockfish and Trevor Woodside finished in a time of one hour, six minutes and 23 seconds, good for third spot. In the open recreational class, Matthew Raymond and Rhys Hill placed first in a time of one hour, six minutes and 25 seconds. Bill Pollock and Lester Kovac were second in a time of one hour, 11 minutes and 27 seconds while Ross Francis and Darrel Bond finished in a time of one hour, 13 minutes and 47 seconds, good for third place. In the female recreational category, Ann Raymond and Emilie Lariviere placed first in a time of one hour, ten minutes and 43 seconds. Second place went to the duo of Lynn Shepherd and sue Holloway, only ten seconds behind the winners. Third place went to Cathy Rogers and Connie Downes in a time of one hour, 25 minutes and five seconds. In the high school class, Jacob Smith and Isaac Finkelstein placed first in a time of one hour, eight minutes and 37 seconds. Second place went to Bryan Davey and Ryan Handler while third place went to Sean MacIntosh and Owen Rainboth. See UPPER JOCK, page 54

grabbed by Mark Neufeld, Chris Neufeld and Lianne Bradley. In the sit-on-op class, Benoit Letourneau was the winner in a time of one hour, two minutes and 25 seconds. The duo of Jayne Glennon and Rebecca Handbridge placed second, almost 45 minutes behind th3e winning time. Third place R0012635027

went to Donald Seaman. In the racing C2 class, Doug Bretzlaff and Don Phillips won in a time of one hour, ten minutes and 13 seconds. Second place went to the pair of Arden Weiss and James Flowers. Max Finkelstein won the racing C1 class while the K2 open class was won by the duo of Bernard Dugas and Jean-Francois Larbe. Gaetan Plourde and Ian Mockett are no strangers to paddling races as this year they are also organizing a first-ever Kingston to Ottawa 200 kilometer paddling race following the Rideau Canal that includes 22 portages and must be completed within 32 hours. It will be taking place on Saturday, Aug. 16 and Sunday,

Aug. 17. The 12.6 kilometer long race starts on the Jock River at the Munster Road south of Franktown Road. From the start line, there is a shallow rapid a few minutes downstream, followed by a chute of fast water. The river then flows through open fields and farmland for several kilometers before several sharp bends signal the beginning of the Richmond Fen wetland through which the river runs. When paddlers see a railway line on the south side of the river, it means the end of the Richmond Fen, with the river widening out considerably. This is followed by a long set of rapids followed by another set of rapids before the finish line at the Jock River Park in Richmond comes into sight.

‘Visions and the Creative Voice’ art show John Curry john.curry@metroland.com

News - It’s an oasis of art on the second floor at Sacred Heart Catholic High School in Stittsville. Located adjacent to the front stairway’s arrival on the second floor of the school, the Sacred Heart High School art gallery is currently hosting an exhibit featuring the work of grade 12 students. Entitled “Visions and the Creative Voice,” this exhibit began last January and runs through to Friday, May 9. Sacred Heart visual arts teacher Leydin Mullally explains that the exhibition is part of a grade 12 course that is geared to helping students who are contemplating further studies or a career in art. This exhibition helps by giving the students additional components for their portfolios which are instrumental in gaining acceptance at post-secondary institutions. She explained that each student is different in terms of his or her creative vision. That’s why the exhibition simply bears the title “Vision and the Creative Voice,” a broad enough scope to embrace each student’s creative voice and style. JOHN CURRY/METROLAND One of the student artists participating in this exhibiSacred Heart Catholic High School grade 12 student Courtney Dinelle tion is grade 12 student Courtney Dinelle who used artist stands beside one of her paintings on display at the “Visions and the Gustav Klimt as the inspiration for one of her pieces on

display. Gustav’s art features patterns and designs used to achieve both beauty and a decorative appeal. “I fell in love with his paintings,” Courtney says in explaining why she did a decorative work following Gustav’s style. She explained that the piece entitled “Dreaming of Klimt” took her a long time to do but she is happy with the result. And you can see it for yourself by visiting this “Visions and the Creative Voice” exhibit. Courtney is hoping to attend Sheridan College for animation with the hope of becoming an animator working on movies and games and just generally be “part of the magic of animating” as she says. Lyndsay Reeves, who has three pieces in the exhibition, wants to pursue her drawing and painting and perhaps branch out into illustrations later. She has been drawing since she was a little girl and now always has at least one piece of art on the go, either at school or at home. All of the pieces of art on display in this exhibition have an individual explanation written by the artist, describing the art and how it was created. Among students with art in this exhibition are Samantha-Jo Meijer, Jean-Michael Jones, Lana Souaid, Maire O’Hara, Maryshea Mcnamee, Katarina Yannoupoulos and Joel Dykes.

Image consultant at Women’s Breakfast Continued from page 56

That’s why she addressed four topics in her presentation at the breakfast: colour in a wardrobe; balancing clothing to the body; clothing personality; and beneficial tips. It was when she talked about balancing clothing to a body frame that she got into her description of various body shapes. There’s the Figure 8, the hourglass shape, that features a bust and hips the same size but with a smaller waist. She explained that as a woman ages, this Figure 8 sometimes morphs into an “H,” with the waist expanding. The V frame is another body shape that is common, in which the shoul-

ders and bust are bigger than the hips and thighs. This body frame can be offset by wearing wider clothes so that the hips and thighs appear wider than they are. As for the A frame body type, it features big hips and thighs while being narrow at the top. The use of shoulder pads and detailing on the shoulders of clothes helps the shoulders look bigger, offsetting the A frame characteristics. The Oval shape features a waist that is smaller than the bust and hips. This can be combated by wearing loose fitting clothing. Ms. McCarthy also touched on the matter of the colour of clothing. Don’t ever underestimate colour in your wardrobe, she advised the

women in attendance at the breakfast, noting that colour in clothing needs to be saying the right thing about the wearer. Blue is a popular colour and she said that if a woman were to have only one suit, it should probably be blue in colour. As for red, she considers it a power colour which gives its wearer confidence. Yellow, in her view, is a happy, optimistic colour while she issued a warning about white – make sure that it is the right shade of white or else it will not brighten your day as you expect. She called black a “mysterious colour” that everyone loves to wear, even referring to it as a “sexy colour.”

But she warned that a woman should not wear black as she gets older. Ms. McCarthy also advised that there are some colours that a particular woman should not wear. She maintained that clothing has a personality. There’s the natural look usually worn by the sports minded woman. Such clothing is usually worn without makeup and with very little jewellery, usually only earrings. Then there’s the classic look for the woman who is organized and controlled. This look is usually captured as a one colour dress. The “dramatic” is another clothing personality, usually applying to a taller woman who likes a lot of geometric clothing and is usually represented by the wearing of dark colours from head to toe.

g n i t a r b e l e C y a D s ’ r e h Mot

The “romantic” is a curvy and feminine look that emphasizes soft, flowing clothes. Dainty jewellery accessories are part of this look and the clothing is usually very high quality. But whatever a person’s clothing personality, the key message from Ms. McCarthy is “just dress for who you are.” Ms. McCarthy also gave a few tips for women and their clothing including the use of shoulder pads and shapewear. She also advised women to dress up when they go shopping for clothes as she claims that this results in better service from sales staff. Another tip was to have the proper length of strap on a purse. She said that a woman should be able to grab the bottom of the purse. If not, then the strap is not the right length.

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories Lifestyle - The seeds from Steele-Briggs had long since arrived in the mail. Mother had little wood flats laid out all over the downstairs of the house. Every day I checked, looking for sprouts of life, and when I saw some that hadn’t been there before, I was as excited as if I was witness to a birth, which, in a way, it was. Some of the boxes filled the window sills, and space on the bake table had been taken over, and that table pushed close to the window that looked out into the grape arbour. Mother tried to capture as much sunlight as possible to help her growing seeds along. I couldn’t tell what the plants were to become, and I wasn’t sure Mother knew either. So to take the mystery out of it all, Mother laced the empty seed packet onto a little stick and there was one in each box identifying what was planted. Very clever indeed, was my mother. There was still a chill in the air, but the days were warming up, and Mother said soon the garden would be ploughed up. By then the sprouts could be ready for planting. Every night before I went to bed, I carried my little kitten Fluffy in my arms and circled the boxes, putting firmly in my mind how tall each sprig was, so that in the morning I could check to see what growth had taken place over night.

Fluffy flat out refuses to like garden idea

Mother, who was dead set against any pets in the house, allowed me to keep Fluffy, but only until she was grown enough to move to the barn. With her in my arms, I would talk to her about the plants and how once they had been tiny little seeds, sure in my mind that she knew every word I was saying. “Those have grown a good inch,” Mother said that night, as she took a teaspoon and poked at the earth around the little plants coming to life in the box under the window. I wanted to believe her, but to me they looked exactly as they did two days before. Firmly holding Fluffy, I got down on my knees and smelled the little plants. All I could smell was earth. I put Fluffy’s nose close, too, but she didn’t seem the least bit interested in whether or not the plants were showing any sign of life. Sometimes I sneaked Fluffy upstairs to my bedroom, which I shared with my older sister Audrey. I’d put her under my bed on a folded blanket. That night I put her in her small cardboard box behind the Findlay Oval, because the house had cooled down, and I knew she would be as snug as a bug in a rug. I wakened the next morning to Mother’s yelling up the stairwell for me to get down to the kitchen, and I better make it fast. Wiping the sleep from my eyes I followed

Mother’s pointing figure to the flat box of sprouts under the kitchen window. There was Fluffy, stretched out as neat as you please, on top of what was just about ready for planting. Mother stopped only long enough to repeat once again that animals belong in the barn before ordering “that cat” to be immediately moved right out to the barn, and she was never to darken the door again. I scooped up the kitten, and even I knew the sprouts were beyond repair. Mother said I could take the wood box out to the junk pile behind the silo while I was at it. Still in my pyjamas, with Fluffy under one arm, and the box of soil and flattened sprouts in the other, I headed for the silo. Fluffy spent the rest of her days with the rest of the barn cats well away from the house. Litter boxes were unheard of back in those days, but you didn’t need a university degree to tell you the smell coming from the wood box held more than a few dozen would-be vegetable plants.

with Clean Eating and Active Living Setting Goals is the

Your Body Type &

Cravings

Key!

When your body is out of balance, your cravings are about your body trying to provide stimulation for the dominant organ which is related to your body type. So what can you do? If you crave: 1. SWEETS & CARBS - your dominant body type is THRYOID Your Solution: Reduce soy and raw cruciferous veggies ( kale, cabbage, broccoli, etc. ). Increase Coconut oil, which contains lauric acid, to promote optimal thyroid function and metabolism.

2. SALT & FAT - your dominant body type is ADRENAL Your Solution: Reduce caffeine & alcohol. Increase almonds which are rich in magnesium.

3. RICH & SPICY - your

wine and increase lemons to help balance hormones.

4. DAIRY - your dominant body type is PITUITARY. Your Solution: Decrease potassium rich avocado, which tends to be reduced in this body

Preparation Time: 10 min | Serves: 4 | Serving Size: 1 cup Coconut water helps to infuse the body with energy boosting electrolytes, while the coconut oil stimulates your metabolism. Perfect for that hot summer day or after a workout. 1 very ripe banana, frozen ½ cup pineapple, diced plus 1 wedge for garnish 2 cups ice cubes

dominant body type is GONADAL

Your Solution: Decrease red

processed foods and increase

Coco-Nutty Pina Colada

If you are consistent, you will make progress. One way to ensure your consistency is to make simple, highly achievable goals for yourself. You must ensure that you are 90-100% confident that you can stick to the goal for 30 days. If you feel any less confident, you must modify and simplify the goal until you feel it is achievable. For instance, instead of saying “I will cut sugar completely out of my diet”, which may be unrealistic, say “I will only have sugar on the weekends.” Therefore, you are still making a healthy lifestyle change, but one that is easily attainable. Reaching a short term goal and then setting new ones is key to long term success!

Special to the News

Lifestyle - Strawberries take a twist here in a savoury glaze for lamb. They add an overall sweetness to the dish. Soak wooden skewers, if using, for at least 10 minutes. Preparation time: 15 minutes. Standing time: two hours. Cooking time: about 20 minutes. Serves six to eight. Ingredients Lamb and marinade: * 2.2 kg (5 lb) boneless leg of lamb * 50 ml (1/4 cup) vegetable oil * 50 ml (1/4 cup) minced fresh chives * 15 ml (1 tbsp) grated fresh lemon rind * 25 ml (2 tbsp (25 mL) each fresh lemon juice and maple syrup * 4 cloves garlic, minced * 2 ml (1/2 tsp) each coarse sea salt and pepper Strawberry maple chive glaze: * 15ml (1 tbsp) vegetable oil * 1 shallot, minced * 2 cloves garlic, minced * 2 ml (1/2 tsp) each salt and pepper * 750 ml (3 cups) halved strawberries * 10 ml (2 tsp) grated fresh lemon rind * 50 ml (1/4 cup) maple syrup * 25 ml (2 tbsp) each fresh lemon juice and balsamic vinegar * 50 ml (1/4 cup) minced fresh

chives Preparation Trim the fat from the lamb and cut it into five-centimetre (twoinch) cubes. In a bowl, whisk together the oil, chives, lemon rind, lemon juice, maple syrup, garlic, salt and pepper. Pour it into a resealable plastic bag and add the lamb cubes. Seal the bag and turn the cubes inside to coat. Refrigerate and marinate the lamb for two hours. Strawberry maple chive glaze: In a saucepan, heat the oil over medium heat and add the shallots, garlic, salt and pepper. Sauté until softened, about 3 minutes. Add the strawberries, lemon rind, maple syrup and lemon juice. Using a potato masher, mash the berries to bring out the juices. Bring them to a boil, reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, to combine the flavours -- about 10 minutes. Stir in the vinegar and cook until thickened and syrupy, about five minutes. Remove the sauce from the heat and stir in the chives. Set aside 175 ml (3/4 cup) of the mixture to use as a dipping sauce. Thread the lamb cubes onto skewers and place on a greased grill over medium-high heat. Brush the cubes with the remaining strawberry glaze and grill until medium-rare, about 20 minutes, turning and basting skewers occasionally with the glaze. Serve the skewers with the reserved glaze as a dipping sauce.

News - This Saturday, you can help Nancy Therrien of Stittsville in her battle against cancer. Giant Tiger at the Jackson Trails Centre plaza in Stittsville is holding a BBQ and Fun Day this Saturday, May 3 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. to help raise funds and awareness for the Nancy Therrien cancer fund. Along with the BBQ, there will be a face painting station, a bake sale and a raffle table, all fun events and great reasons to drop in and support the event. In addition, the newly opened Kiwi Kraze fresh selfserve yogurt business at the Jackson Trails Centre plaza has come on board and from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Kiwi Kraze will donate a percentage of its sales to the Nancy Therrien cancer fund. Giant Tiger is being supported by a number of other businesses and sponsors in putting on this fundraising BBQ in support of Nancy Therrien this Saturday, May 3. These include Cabotto’s Ristorante Italiano, Café Napoli, Designs by Darby, First Choice Hair Cutters, Global Rewards, JoJo’s Pizza, Kiwi Kraze, M&M Meat Shops, Main Street Pub, McEwen’s Gas, Oil Changers, Pocopazzo, Pretty Pots Florist, Ritchies Feed & Seed, RinkPro Sports, Rona, The Glen Scottish Restaurant & Pub, Willy’s Pizza and Irish Hills Golf and Country Club. Giant Tiger has already been a strong supporter of Nancy Therrien in her battle against cancer, recently collecting donations at the store to help her. But, then again, helping out with fundraising is nothing new for Stittsville’s Giant Tiger. In the past it has held fundraising BBQ’s for, among other causes, the Humane Society and Nelson House, a shelter for abused women. It also asks customers for donations on occasion through its “Tiger Paw” program and Giant Tiger customers have proven to be pretty generous in the past. It was early last fall when Nancy Therrien went for an MRI scan because she had been experiencing back problems. Shortly after this, before hearing any results, she had to be rushed to hospital with breathing problems. This led to a diagnosis of lung cancer, with the breathing problems caused by blood clots circulating all through her body. It was said that she probably had only 48 hours or so to live had she not arrived at the hospital when she did. It turns out that these blood clots are a by-product of her lung cancer which is not caused by smoking but is a nonsmokers version of lung cancer. A large tumour was found on her lung, a tumour which the earlier MRI scan ended up detecting as well. Because of the size of the tumour, surgery was not possible. So, it meant an aggressive program of chemotherapy and then radiation to try to shrink the tumour and drive it into remission. What has been really worrying Nancy and her husband Luc during all of this battle against cancer was how they were going to pay for some of the additional shots and pills that she requires to fight this form of lung cancer. As long struggling small business people operating Stittsville Glass & Signs, young and not expecting such disastrous health news, they had never subscribed to any additional health coverage. Perhaps they should have but there were always so many other bills and expenses that needed paying. This means that they are facing some pretty serious financial bills. For instance, to prevent the blood clots which this form of lung cancer produces, Nancy must have a shot every day. And the cost? Five shots cost $495. And these shots have to continue daily until the cancer goes away or is in total remission. A bank account to help out Nancy Therrien has been opened at the TD Canada Trust branch at the corner of Stittsville Main Street and Carp Road in Stittsville where donations can be made. The bank account number to quote when making such a donation at the branch is 3281 6140429. Or if you just identify the donation as being for Nancy Therrien and her battle against cancer, your donation will be directed to the right spot. And while the odds of recovering from her form of lung cancer are only a 20 percent survival rate, Nancy remains confident that she will make it through this health challenge, putting a lot of faith in the belief that God does not send a person a challenge that the person cannot handle. The Jackson Trails Centre plaza where Giant Tiger is located at Hazeldean Road and Stittsville Main Street.

We would like to thank the community for the support they’ve given to us during this difficult time. We feel deep gratitude to the first responders - the Carp fire department, the EMTs, the police, and the coroner – who shepherded us through a difficult day with the utmost respect, compassion and kindness. Thank you to friends and neighbours who kept us fed and helped us with the tasks of daily life. At Coles we would like to thank Mark and Kevin for their compassion and assistance. We are indebted to Father Paul at St Augustine’s Church who with exceptional kindness and understanding guided us through the ceremony honouring Zachary’s life. And most especially thank you to all of those who joined with us to honour Zach and his extraordinary spirit at the Celebration – friends, neighbours, hockey teams, softball teams, staff and students at St Paul’s secondary school, staff and students at West Carleton Secondary School and the many many friends that Zachary made throughout his life. We are blessed to have such a supportive community. With love, The Melhuishs (Zach’s dad, mom and brother).

The season wound up with a closing dinner, the championship game and an awards ceremony last Friday at the Richmond Legion Hall. It was the team of Rob McGuire, Brian Goss and Rene Douville which emerged on top, not only as the playoff champions but also as the Side A winner in the regular season.

The Side B winner was the team of Tim Lytle, Pam Kilabuk and Elizabeth Douville who lost the playoff championship game to the McGuire/Goss/Douville team last Friday. Geoff Kilabuk had the most wins for the men over the course of the regular season while Lana Muldoon had the most wins for the women. Ross Sillett had the men’s high score over the season while the high score for the women was a tie between Pam Kilabuk and Cathie Lytle.

The players also thanked Wendy Ryan for her work in organizing and promoting the darts league. The Richmond Legion’s darts league always has the welcome mat out for new members. You can be a regular player or just serve as a spare. If you want to enjoy a regular evening out having fun playing darts and enjoying the camaraderie that prevails among darts players, you should consider joining the Richmond Legion’s darts league when it resumes in the fall.

At library Special to the News

News - Are you inquisitive about family history, woodturning or digital cameras? Well, if any of these topics is of interest, you should consider registration for one of the upcoming free adult programs on these subjects being offered at the Stittsville branch of the Ottawa Public Library. If you are into preserving your family’s historical documents, then a program entitled “Storing and Preserving Family History” that is being offered this coming Tuesday, May 6 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:15 p.m. at the Stittsville library branch may be what you are looking for. Cultural preservation professor Kyla Ubbink from Algonquin College will be presenting this program in which you will learn some valuable techniques for preserving family historical documents for the future. If you have also been intrigued by woodturning, then you will want to attend a program on Tuesday, May 20 from 6:15 p.m. to 7:45 p.m. at the Stittsville library branch in which Laurie Riley will explain about the art of woodturning. Laurie has been a woodturner for over 30 years, turning wood into useful objects. This program was initially offered last October but had to be cancelled. This will provide another opportunity for people to learn about the art of woodturning. Woodturning is a form of woodworking that results in creating wooden objects on a lathe. The wood moves while a stationary tool is used to cut and shape it. Woodturning dates back to about 1300 BC when the first lathe was developed in Egypt. During the industrial revolution, the lathe was motorized, allowing for more production in less time. Another program being offered at the Stittsville library branch deals with digital cameras and how to go about buying one to meet your needs. “How To Buy A Digital Camera” will be offered on Tuesday, June 17 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:15 p.m. at the Stittsville library branch on Stittsville Main Street in Stittsville. Chris Taylor, president of the Ottawa PC Users Group, will provide information and advice on what to look for when buying a digital camera and how to shop for the best deal possible. All of these free adult programs at the Stittsville branch of the Ottawa Public Library require registration by participants. Registration can be done online at www.biblioottawalibrary.ca. There is always the possibility that a program will be cancelled if there is an insufficient number of registrants.
