Chinese Lion Dance is happening at restaurant opening John Curry john.curry@metroland.com

EMC news - A Chinese Lion Dance will be happening in Stittsville this Sunday, May 13. This form of traditional dance in Chinese culture in which performers mimic a lion’s movements in a lion costume will come alive at an 11 a.m. ceremony marking the grand opening of the new Kungfu Bistro at the Stittsville Corners (Sobeys) shopping area at the corner of Carp Road and Hazeldean Road in Stittsville. A Chinese Lion Dance in which the performers’ faces are covered since they are inside the lion is closely related to most Chinese martial arts in the dance’s fundamental movements. Indeed, the Chinese Lion Dance in this respect is appropriate for this occasion marking the opening of a restaurant that not only with its name but also with its approach to healthy eating and lifestyle is closely tied to martial arts. And that’s why the opening ceremony is going to feature not only a Chinese Lion Dance but also several martial arts displays. Brief demonstrations will be presented by Iber Road’s Canadian Sport Martial Arts Academy, by the Stittsville Tae Kwon Do program, by the Daido Academy of Ottawa, a martial arts organization, and by the Sunny Tang Ving Tsun Kung Fu program of Carp. This will all be taking place, weather permitting, on a cement patio area outside the front of the restaurant, with lots of space for viewing by the public. Members of the public are encouraged to attend and see these martial arts demonstrations along with the Chinese Lion Dance. After this opening ceremony of martial arts demonstrations, the Chinese Lions Dance and a ribbon cutting, everyone will be welcome to go inside the new restaurant and enjoy a complimentary lunch. This will be served buffet style in order to accommodate the crowd, although this new restaurant is normally a sit-down restaurant. In recent years, Kungfu has become a well known name thanks to a number of martial arts movies and actors depicting the skills associated with Kungfu. But essentially “Kungfu” can be used in ways unrelated to martial arts, referring to any skill or technique derived from long and hard work. The new Kungfu Bistro in Stittsville qualifies in this regard, as its owners and chefs have over 25 years of experience in the Asian food industry, previously all out West with this being their first venture in Ontario. The chefs have fine-tuned their “kungfu” at the woks. Under the searing power of jet burners, the heat of the woks used reaches high levels. Guided by these experienced chefs, these works are physically lifted and vegetables and meat are tossed at quick intervals to avoid burning. This is a technique that is not easily mastered. But what a difference it makes! These uncooked vegetables and meats are transformed instantaneously with the result that crisp green vegetables and meat are cooked to perfection. Adding in quality ingredients and the absence of the artificial enhancer called MSG and the result is a healthier eating experience. See CHINESE on page 4

SCHS students win business competition John Curry john.curry@metroland.com

EMC news - Two South Carleton High School students have formed the winning team in the CA-Sprott Business Competition, an online business simulation that rewards entrepreneurship. SCHS students Andrew Burghgraef and Aidan Kelly placed first in the Xtreme or advanced category of the competition, beating out teams from six other schools across the province in the finals held on Friday, May 4. . In winning, Andrew and Aidan earned $2,000 in prize money plus $500 for South Carleton’s business department. Second place went to a team from A.Y. Jackson Secondary School in North York while third place went to an entry from Woburn Collegiate Institute in Scarborough. Altogether, just under 5,000 high school students across Ontario took part in this CA-Sprott Business Competition which started in Febru-

ary and wound up with last Friday’s finals. Developed by Carleton University’s Sprott School of Business and sponsored by the Ontario CA Institute, the CA-Sprott Business Competition pits high school students against one another as they experience the ups and downs of running their own company, all while competing for cash prizes. The team members make decisions relating to marketing, accounting, sales and more while guiding their webbased virtual companies to success or failure as the case may be. This competition also provides high school business teachers with an innovative, hands-on teaching tool for their classrooms. “The Sprott Business Competition is a free, entertaining and engaging way for students to test business theory in practice and make their classes more fun,” says Dr. Jerry Tomberlin, dean of the Sprott School of Business at Carleton University in Ottawa.

EMC news - The gymnasium became an art gallery at the Frederick Banting Alternate Program in Stittsville on Thursday, May 3.

teacher Mary Williamson said in explaining the art show which was visited during the day by students with a special viewing period for parents in the early evening. At the show, teacher Williamson as well as participating students who were on hand to help out wore black t-shirts with “Art at Banting” emblazoned on the front. The t-shirts were designed by student Gabbie Savoy and made in class. The art was displayed on tables set up around the gymnasium as well as on four black rectangular four-sided towers standing in the middle of the show area. The art ranged from paintings and drawings to masks to sculpture. There was also clothing on display, made by students. Some were dresses, examples of clothing destined

for girls in 56 countries around the world through a “dress a girl around the world” program that provides this clothing to replace existing, wornout clothing. There were also knitted baby bonnets that are destined for CHEO. All of this clothing plus neo-natal baby blankets is made by Banting students as community service hour projects. One eye-catching clothing exhibit in the show was a wedding gown made by a student as a project for an entrepreneurship course. It was a gown made from a combination of two wedding dresses which had been acquired at Value Village. But it was art, in various forms, that attracted the eye everywhere in the show.

sculpture by Jamma Barlas or a collection of bearded accessories by Emma Hargreaves or the vast array of artwork, artistic creations abounded everywhere. And what about the masks! There were a couple of displays of these creations – Tiemen Van Der Horn’s muilticoloured mask or Dawson Leafloor’s black, white and green plaster one were but two examples of these artistic marvels. Deeshia Solomon’s female mask with yellow hair and pigtails was a show-stopper. There was a whole display of acrylic on board artwork done by students such as Nick Brisebois’ sunny yellow art or Byron Birkett’s geometric creation. Ian Graham’s black and white felt pen drawing was an example of another form of art on display but there was also work done with watercolours and India ink. Brian DiRenzo’s 25 panel, checkerboard format art done with pencil crayon stood out, as did s skyline scene done by Janet Bouchard using felt pen on paper. Brian DiRenzo’s work was noticed again in the form of a bi-plane created with popsicle sticks and using acrylic paint. And he was also in the show for his creation of a shoe with a face, a work described as acrylic on clay. Kevin Hayward’s sculpture, acrylic on plaster, had a devil-like feel to it, with an eerie hand and glasses.

Chinese Lion Dance to be performed The name “Kungfu Bistro” was also chosen by the owners because of their admiration for the martial arts. Indeed, marketing manager Margarita Chen holds a black belt in martial arts. Kung Fu as a martial art dates back centuries and is the core art from which the present-day martial arts are created, whether it’s Tae Kwon Do, Mixed Martial Arts, Jiu-Jitsu, Tai Chi or Ving Tsun. These martial arts and this new restaurant share a common goal: the pursuit of improved health and wellness. Being active is part of this; healthy eating is a companion to this. The new Kungfu Bistro will be open from 11 a.m. through the day and evening from Monday to Friday. On Saturdays and R0091250652/0510

The website is www.kungfubistro.com which there will be menus, trivia about Kungfu and on-line ordering. Chinese food will be available throughout the day and evening. In addition, Vietnamese soups and dishes will be available during lunch times. Margarita Chen points to the 25 years’ experience which she and her husband have in the restaurant business, experience that has led to the opening of what they believe is a unique restaurant in the area. They are trying to incorporate in their new Kungfu Bistro restaurant all of the things that they like about oriental food in combination with healthier living. They chose Stittsville as the location for this new restaurant because they have family and friends in Stittsville, Carp and Carleton Place and Stittsville is a central location and they like the community. The restaurant has applied for a liquor license and should have it in a few weeks.

He expects that many of the competitors in the competition will go into business in the future. “The Institute of Chartered Accountants of Ontario is proud to support the CA-Sprott Business Competition because it helps educate young people about entrepreneurship, the life blood of our economy, “ says Rod Barr, president and CEO of the Institute. He noted that the participants in the competition learn through the competition that business and competition can be fun. “CA’s and other successful business professionals don’t just go to work to earn a pay cheque,” he says. “They go because they relish the challenge of solving problems and building dynamic organizations.” The Institute of Chartered Accountants of Ontario is the qualifying and regulatory body of Ontario’s 35,000 Chartered Accountants and 5,000 CA students.

EMC news – The “Coast to Coast” spring concert by the Goulbourn Male Chorus this Saturday, May 12 at 7 p.m. at St. Thomas Anglican Church in Stittsville will feature patriotic songs and spoken tributes for Canada’s Armed Forces, gospel to sacred classical music selections, folk music from Canada and abroad and the inaugural performance of the newly established West Ottawa Ladies’ Chorus. In the concert, the Goulbourn Male Chorus will be singing a variety of music ranging from Canadian folk songs, gospel favourites and Scottish, Irish and Welsh folk songs. There will also be patriotic songs as part of its tribute to the Canadian armed forces. Indeed, the “Coast to Coast” title of the concert in part reflects this focus on the Canadian armed forces, providing an opportunity, as Goulbourn Male chorus music director Robert Dueck says, to remember the members of Canada’s armed forces, both serving and fallen, who are found from coast to coast in Canada. “Living in this wonderful capital city, we frequently see our military men and women in uniform,” says director Robert Dueck. “This reminds us of their dedication, their devotion to the job, comrades and fellow Canadians.” He says that at this concert, the Goulbourn Male Chorus wants to say “thank you” to members of the Canadian military for all that they do and for all that they have done over the years. It will also provide an opportunity to remember those who have fallen in service to their country. He notes that Canadians

concert will also feature what is becoming a tradition at Goulbourn Male Chorus concert and that is audience participation. Previous concerts of the Goulbourn Male Chorus have included audience participation, singalong opportunities. “And this one will not disappoint,” says director Dueck, with audience participation planned for an East Coast folk song, two of the patriotic songs, one of the Scottish folk songs and in the closing number, the iconic “This Land Is

Your Land.” This “Coast to Coast” concert will be presented on Saturday, May 12 at 7 p.m. at St. Thomas Anglican Church at the corner of Stittsville Main Street and Carleton Cathcart Street in Stittsville. Tickets will be available at the door at a cost of $15 for adults. There is free admission for children aged 16 and under. More information about the Goulbourn Male Chorus and this “Coast to Coast” concert can be found at www.goulbournmalechorus.com

do remember the military, both serving and fallen, on Remembrance Day but this concert will provide an opportunity to remember not just on the one day in November but on a spring day as well. “We’re really putting a really good focus on recognizing our forces,” Mr. Dueck says about the concert. Part of this will be accomplished by having the Hon. Gordon O’Connor, MP for Carleton-Mississippi Mills, a former Minister of National Defence and a retired Brigadier General himself, introduce the military song “Heart of Oak.” In addition, retired Lt. Gen. Bill Carr will be on hand to present a tribute to Canada’s armed forces. This will all be done in a segment of the concert featuring patriotic songs such as the navy hymn “Eternal Father Strong To Save”. But the “Coast to Coast” theme of the concert extends beyond this tribute to Canada’s armed forces. The Male Chorus will be singing a selection of Canadian folk songs but what is unusual is that a couple of these folk songs will be West Coast folk songs, not the more well known East Coast folk songs. “I really like the music and I think the guys do too,” says director Robert Dueck about these West Coast folk songs which he explains do not sound anything at all like the East Coast folk music. Norman E. Brown, who plays the violin and viola, will be a guest musician at the concert. This concert will also feature the inaugural performance of the new West Ottawa Ladies’ Chorus.

Music matches spectacular spring weather John Curry john.curry@metroland.com

EMC news - Whether it was the iconic “Danny Boy” or the traditional Scottish favourite “Loch Lomond” or Newfoundland’s “I’se the Bye” or the peppy Irish tune “Belle of Belfast” or any of the other songs sung by three different choirs or combinations thereof in the “Celtic Connections” concert presented twice last weekend, one thing was certain – the hope expressed at the Saturday evening concert by Goulbourn Jubilee Singers director Linda Crawford that the music would match the spectacular spring weather

enjoyed that day proved to be true. It was spectacular. Whether it was the full Goulbourn Jubilee Singers choir, dressed in black with blue sashes, or its youth choir the Junior Jubilees or the visiting Siamsa Singers from Montreal or any combination of these, the two-hour concert had the audience enjoying its variety of Irish, Scottish, Newfoundland and Welsh songs. And the audience itself even got into the act, participating in a singalong version of “Wild Mountain Thyme.” The beginning and the end of the concert were both memorable, with the concert

getting underway when bagpiper Erick Braham, a member of the Siamsa Singers, piped the Goulbourn Jubilee Singers into the worship space at Kanata’s Glen Cairn United Church, the venue for the concert. And as for the ending – there was the audience, ringed by the choir members as they sang “The Parting Glass” in a cappella style, providing the ultimate in stereophonic sound as they encircled their audience. The choirs singing in the concert were frequently accompanied not only by the Goulbourn Jubilee Singers’ regular accompanist Doll Creelman but also by a variety of guest musicians including Judy Brush on clarinet, Graham Lindsey on field drum, percussion and Celtic flute, Brenna Hardy-Kavanagh on violin, Donna-Marie Sullivan on bodhran, Lisa Laughton on flute and piccolo and Sarah Burnell, the director of the Siamsa Singers, on violin. There were also soloists such as Anna Bramble, Robyn Davy and Julia Heusel for the Junior Jubilees, and Wayne Spears, Janis Crawford, Dean Brady, Dwayne Clipperton, Normand Belanger, Bryn Burnell and Donna-Marie

Sullivan for the adult choirs. It was a programme filled with Celtic music, whether it was the opening “Lark in the Clear Air,” a famous Irish tune or “The Girl I Left Behind Me,” a tune frequently played by military bands or “All Through The Night,” a Welsh folk song or “By the Glow of the Kerosene Light,” another Newfie song. The concert featured the premiere of “Codiad, Codiad,” sung by the Junior Jubilees and a song commissioned by the Jubilee Singers in honour of the group’s 35th anniversary this year. The Goulbourn Jubilee Singers, formed in 1977, enbraces any adult who enjoys music. There are no auditions. The Goulbourn Jubilee Singers usually perform two major concerts a year, one at Christmas time and a second in the springtime, just like this “Celtic Connections” concert. The Junior Jubilees were started in September 2000 to provide a choral singing opportunity for youth. Linda Crawford is the director of both the Goulbourn Jubilee Singers and the Junior Jubilees. The Siamsa Singers of Montreal, directed by Sarah

Burnell, Linda Crawford’s daughter, focuses on Celtic music. Sarah Burnell is a music teacher and also teaches violin and fiddle. She is also an active performer, leading the Sarah Burnell Band which in 2006 won the Canadian Folk Music Award for Young Performer of the Year. She has released two albums of Celtic music. Members of the Goulbourn Jubilee Singers are Pat Bednarz, Dorotheo Bendall, Erin Cavanagh, Susan Chapman, Bev Coote, Eve Donoghue, Pat Graham, Tracey Heard, Lois Hoysted, Mary Kennedy, Vivian Latulippe, Lisa Laughton, Pat Lindsey, Sue Lopez, Karen Martin, Kate Moore, Charlotte Parry, Lina Peddie, Shannon Rodney, Jane Simpson, Cheryl Spence, Freda Sutton and Monique Vail, sopranos; Sandra Allan, Sandra Brown, Gwen Cairns, Alanna Code, Elizabeth Douville, Rosalind Harris, Elizabeth Long, Mary March, Sharon Neill, Nancy Sawyer, Shauna Shapton, Alana Viljoen and Sheila Wattie, altos; Judy Brush, Bill Brush, Dwayne Clipperton, Scott Shepherd and Wayne Spears, tenors; and John Argue, Jack Barker, Bryn Burnell, dick Coote, Rene Dou-

Infrastructure repairs worth inconvenience to residents

I

f youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a child crying in the backseat of the car because he or she has to go to the bathroom only seconds after dressing them in a full snowsuit, there isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t much room for negotiation. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a fun stop to make, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not up for debate. If they have to go, they have to go. Even if you have to spend several minutes taking off all the layers and more time putting them back on, it is worth it. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only for the worse if

the child should, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just say, spring a leak. The same logic applies to infrastructure projects such as the new Orleans water main. Those 100,000 people are currently served by one water main, which is of the same vintage as the Barrhaven pipe that broke last year. That community went through a good chunk of the summer under severe water restrictions after the water main, installed in 1976 beneath Woodroffe Avenue,

broke during the winter of 2011. According to the city, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to cost more â&#x20AC;&#x201C; $25 million more â&#x20AC;&#x201C; than originally estimated to build the new main. But the new $75 million estimated cost would be money the residents will wish the city would have spent if the water main were to ever break. The main serves the growing suburbs of Orleans and Cumberland which is only going to see rising demands

on the water supply in years to come. Engineers have presented reports indicating the pipes are degrading at a rate higher than expected, which means a fix canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be postponed for much longer. But the slowly ticking time bomb that lies under the streets of east Ottawa isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the only water main woe on the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s horizon. The city has plenty of ancient pipes running under its streets that rupture on a

regular basis during the winter months, causing disruption for homeowners, business owners and drivers alike. Some of these water mains lie underneath streets, such as Elgin Street downtown, that have been resurfaced in recent years. But if tearing up what is essentially a brand new road is what needs to be done to ensure vital infrastructure is secure, it simply needs to be done. These types of projects

arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fun to undertake, much like the inconveniences of broken pipes. And they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make for â&#x20AC;&#x153;sexyâ&#x20AC;? unveilings by city councillors once the work is done. But water bans and boil water warnings are even less sexy. Hopefully weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve learned the lessons of last summer and we do what it takes to make sure the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s water supply is secure. Fool us once, shame on you. Fool us twice, shame on us all.

A museum for all Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quirks CHARLES GORDON Funny Town

T

hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been some time now to consider Mayor Jim Watsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s notion of a museum of popular history on Wellington Street and it seems pretty good. Watson wants to call it Canada House and that could be OK, although a bit dull. There is a degree of civic glee at finally having something in that building, which formerly housed the U.S. Embassy and would have housed the portrait gallery until the Conservative government thought differently. But we can let bygones be bygones. The important thing is to put something in the building so it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get torn down. Because you know what we would get then. Yes: condos deplore a vacuum. Do we need another condo? No, nor do we need another glass office building. So the proposal for a museum of popular history is welcome, although not uncontroversial. Someone has made the suggestion that we already have an appropriate location in the Museum of Civilization just across the river. After all, any collection of significant Canadian artifacts and moments would have to contain some political exhibits and politics is civilization, isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it? For my money, the Ottawa location works better, if only because it will preserve a distinctive building and sit nicely in an area that needs more attractions. Now, given the speed at which planning decisions involving several levels of government are taken around here, we probably donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need to rush too much to offer advice on what should go into the new museum. But still, the opportunity has arisen. The mayor mentioned such possible exhibits as

CĂŠline Dionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first gold record; a replica of the Canadarm, Bryan Adamsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; first guitar, Sidney Crosbyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stick from the gold medal game in the 2010 Olympics, Terry Foxâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s T-shirt and Bombardierâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first snowmobile. Those are all worthy suggestions, but they lack important components reflective of life in the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s capital. We need something that reflects the excitement of Ottawa life. Ottawa mayors could fill an entire room. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the toy gun Charlotte Whitton pulled on the board of control in the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;50s, for example. And what about the underwear Lorry Greenberg was wearing when he jumped into that fountain in 1975? There is no shortage of other important figures in our cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history. What about Lenny the Lynx? The Ice Hog? John Turmel? Alanis, before she had a last name. Rare inanimate objects might include an ashtray from Lâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Hibou. Come to think of it, an ashtray. And donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget Nepeanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s muchcelebrated balanced budget, Charles Lynchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s harmonica and Frank Clairâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s glasses. Speakerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Corner on Sparks Street could be replicated, ideally without any speakers. Speaking of Sparks Street, rare historical photos would reveal that people once walked on it after 5 p.m. Other photos in the museum would reveal that cows once walked in Barrhaven, Rideau Street was once a bus shelter and Meech Lake was once a lake. Also the old railway station was once a railway station, as opposed to what it is now, namely, an empty railway station. There is so much in our past that is almost too exciting for a museum. That obviously includes the world of sport. For sure, there has to be something representing the several Rough Rider eras â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Russ Jackson, Whit Tucker, Vic Washington, Bobby Simpson, Tony Gabriel, Billy Cooper, Wonderful Monds and, while weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re at it, some photos of Horn Chen and the Gliebermans, preferably taken when they were leaving town. Finally, some before-and-after photographs of LeBreton Flats would be nice additions, except for the fact that the after pictures would be identical to the before.

‘The Edge of Dawn’ cabaret at Ottawa Waldorf School John Curry

john.curry@metroland.com

EMC news - Stittsville became “Skitsville” last Friday evening, May 4. It’s all happened thanks to the grade eight class at the Ottawa Waldorf School who presented a skit-filled cabaret show entitled “The Edge of Dawn” to a capacity audience at the school’s assembly hall. A number of the skits were done with English accents while still others featured cowboy western talk. One skit involved two people reading the newspaper at a bus stop, with a panda bear sauntering by. Another skit in the Monty Python Flying Circus tradition involved a customer trying to return a dead parrot which the salesman claimed was just stunned. John Cleese and the others Pythons would have loved it. There were a couple of skits featuring a British couple and their tea, as well as several skits with a “Deliverance” theme and western accents, complete with cowboy hats and stories about rattlesnakes, tumbleweeds and more. The bus stop skit returned, this time with two panda bears appearing, along with an old lady in the background. A skit in the Monty Python Flying Circus tradition and the famous cheese shop sketch saw a customer trying to purchase wine in a shop. But just like in the cheese shop scenario,

none of the wine sought was in stock. And the skits continued. Buying a television for one. A Forest Gump scene (“Life is like a bowl of chocolates” or later “cucumbers”). A skit about paying for an argument and arguing over what is an argument. There was, of course, more than just the skits in this two and a half hour production. There was a darkened scene featuring poetry; and two group songs with teacher Alan Krueger, one with rhythmic clapping breaking out as Mr. Krueger sang “Let’s go down to the Valley to pray” and later singing “Yellow Submarine” dressed in red socks and wearing black-rimmed glasses. There was a stilt walker and later a circus-like routine which included jumping through a hula hoop. The cabaret show also had a number of guest musical performers including Irene from The Lowlands who sang and played the guitar, Marc Cric-Crac who sang, played the guitar and led one audience-participation number; Nancy Eady and Nora Joyner with this musical instruments; and a pair from the group “Flying Rowan” who played several numbers. This “The Edge of Dawn” cabaret had teacher Alan Krueger as its executive producer. Co-producers were the grade eight students: Davis To, Bridget Whitlock, Jonah Alvarez, Daniel Pageau, Nora Joyner, Bo Hansen and Dillon Elder.

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; This Saturday, May 12 is fundraising day for M&M Meat Shops in Stittsville. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when M&M Meat Shops at Crossing Bridge Square plaza at the corner of Carp Road and Stittsville Main Street will be joining with more than 450 other M&M Meat Shops across Canada to participate in M&M Meat Shops 24th annual Charity BBQ Day. A freshly grilled burger or hot dog, along with a drink and a bag of chips, will be available for a minimum donation of three dollars. For an additional two dollar donation, those at the BBQ can purchase an M&M Meat Shops strawberry shortcake

bar. Every penny raised will be going directly to Crohnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Colitis Foundation of Canada (CCFC) Crohnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and colitis research. This will all be happening between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Saturday, May 12 outside M&M Meat Shops at the Crossing Bridge Square plaza in Stittsville. Crohnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Colitis Foundation of Canada (CCFC) is a volunteer-based registered national charity dedicated to ďŹ nding the cure for Crohnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disease and ulcerative colitis, commonly referred to as inďŹ&#x201A;ammatory bowel disease (IBD). It was started in 1974 by a group of concerned parents who saw the need to raise funds for research into IBD and to educate patients and

their families about these diseases. Over the past 23 years, M&M Meat Shops, including the one in Stittsville, have raised more than $21.5 million for medical research into inďŹ&#x201A;ammatory bowel disease (IBD), a term which covers two similar yet distinct conditions, Crohnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disease and ulcerative colitis. There are more than 200,000 Canadians suffering from IBD and there is no known cause or cure. Canada has the highest incidence of IBD in the world. This Charity BBQ Day by M&M Meat Shops has grown into CCFCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest annual fundraising activity by any single supporter. Using proceeds raised by this Charity BBQ Day over the years as well as other fundraising events, CCFC has funded more than $71 million in medical research projects. Last year the M&M Meat Shops Charity BBQ Day across Canada raised $1.5 million which is also the goal for this year. The M&M Meat Shops Charity BBQ Day began in 1989 when M&M Meat Shops founder Mac Voisin learned that Canadians suffer from IBD at an unusually high rate. He wanted to both raise awareness of the disease as well as funds to help with research. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when M&M Meat Shops Charity BBQ Day was born.

Hike for Hospice held John Curry john.curry@metroland.com

EMC news - Although she wasn’t there in person due to health matters, she certainly was there in spirit and in everyone’s thoughts. Yes, Julia Hill, a former manager of TD Canada Trust in Stittsville who is now battling cancer and was named again this year as the honourary chair of the eighth annual Hike for Hospice Palliative Care hosted by Friends of Hospice Ottawa at Andrew Haydon Park along the Ottawa River in Nepean last Sunday afternoon, had her photo on signs placed along the walking route, so hikers had a visual reminder of her leadership in the event. Friends of Hospice Ottawa fundraising director Ruth Cameron told of Julia’s personal courage in dealing with her life threatening illness and how she has been instrumental in having both TD Canada Trust and the Rotary Clubs of South Nepean and Ottawa West come onboard to support hospice and palliative care in the area. Indeed, TD District vice-president Alfonso Movilla was on hand at the opening ceremony for the Hike for Hospice Palliative Care to present a donation of $11,000 to Friends of Hospice

Ottawa from fundraising initiatives by TD Canada Trust’s four districts in the Ottawa area – Ottawa Core, Ottawa South, Ottawa West and Ottawa East. A floral bouquet and a Hug Me Bear, which is the Friends of Hospice Ottawa’s signature gift, were presented to Julia Hill’s husband Maury and their daughter. City of Ottawa Kanata North ward councillor Marianne Wilkinson, in her remarks at the opening ceremony, noted that

hospice and palliative care services are very much needed in the west end of the city, making the support of such services a worthy cause. “What you are doing today is helping lots of people,” she told the assembled crowd in sunny, warm spring weather. As of Monday, a total of $64,000 was raised by this Hike for Hospice Palliative Care with some pledges and donations still to be collected.

EMC news - Dandelions Kids consignment shop has relocated. Formerly located along Stittsville Main Street in the downtown core area just south of Abbott Street, Dandelions Kids is now situated at the Stittsville Shopping Centre (Shoppers Drug Mart plaza), right beside the Gaia Java Coffee Shop. Owner Sandra Edwards is happy about the shopâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new premises, which are bright with a white tile ďŹ&#x201A;oor, but more importantly it is one giant space, with no walls separating spaces. She still has her two white arm chairs and a table located at the front of the shop, great for a sit down break for a shopping grandparent, a nursing mother or someone who just wants to take a little breather in a comfortable spot. The aquarium from the former premises has also made the move and it is now located at the rear of the store, beside

EMC news - The laneways of Richmond may be colourful spots this summer. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because the Richmond Village Association (RVA) is planning to sponsor a Chalk Art Contest running over the months of July and August. Richmond residents will be urged to send in photos of their chalk art work. There will be no limit on the number of submissions that can be made by individuals. While the contest has been devised to give youngsters something to do during the summer months, adults are also eligible to enter. All submissions will be posted on the RVA website. There will be prizes given for winning entries. The nature of the prizes and other details about the contest are going to be decided upon by the RVA Board of Directors at its next meeting in June.

Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because Dandelions Kids is right in the middle of a busy area of the plaza â&#x20AC;&#x201C; thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Art Mad and its art classes nearby, as is the Kumon tutoring business. The Gaia Java Coffee Shop right next door is an attraction as it the Moksha Hot Yoga Studio nearby. And thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Napoliâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s CafĂŠ and First Choice Hair Cutters, a spot which attracts a lot of parents and their children.

So, all in all, Ms. Edwards is hoping that Dandelions Kids will beneďŹ t from being in such a busy area. The shop is also signing up more consigners. This not only will help the shop continually have fresh stock for shoppers but also will enable all of the shopâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s items to be of the highest quality. Dandelions Kids will be holding a grand opening on Saturday, May 26, with special guests like a Princess and a Super Hero. There will be a BBQ and city of Ottawa Stittsville ward councillor Shad Qadri will be on hand for a ribbon cutting.

In Taiwan, farmers grow rapeseed which is then plowed under as fertilizer for the next crop of organic rice which is a prized food in Taiwan and Japan. “Roof of Taiwan,”a photograph by Chi Po-lin, shows Taiwan’s Jade Mountain which is East Asia’s highest peak east of the Himalayas. “Demon Slayer,” a photograph by Huang Ting-sheng, shows a man manipulating a string puppet. Taiwanese puppet masters tell historical and folk tales with string puppets as well as with traditional hand puppets. The string puppet in the photo depicts the guardian spirit Zhong Kui, known as the slayer of miscreant demons. The display case that is as-

sociated with the ArtSpace Wall contains pamphlets about Taiwan. The ArtSpace Wall podium stand for this exhibit features a booklet “Taiwan Sublime” which provides information about Taiwan and its natural and ethno-cultural diversity. Taiwan is a large island of about 36,000 square kilometers situated in the western Pacific between Japan and the Philippines. Home to 23 million people, it has a full range of climatic zones from tropical to semitrophical in lowland areas to temperate in its central mountaneous areas. Taiwan has a lot of flora and fauna due to its fertile soil and abundant rainfall and is considered an agricultural paradise. In 2008, Taiwan was the world’s 26th largest economy and is one of the world’s top producers of a number of high tech products and services such as integrated circuit chips. The “Taiwan Sublime” booklet includes a series of photographs taken by Taiwanese photographers across the country, including the five scenes on display on the ArtSpace Wall. The booklet also features a map of Taiwan which situates the country in relation to the Chinese mainland, Korea, Japan and the Philippines. This exhibit “Taiwan Sublime” will be on display at the Stittsville branch of the Ottawa Public Library until Thursday, May 31.

For homeowners, proper lawn care can pay numerous dividends. A lush green lawn can be fun to sculpt, affording homeowners the chance to get outside and soak up some sun. And that lawn also adds to the property value. While lawn care can be a rewarding hobby in more ways than one, it can also prove frustrating at times. Summer heat waves can be taxing on the lawn, drying it out regardless of how much hard work goes into its maintenance. Though summer temperatures can prove a formidable foe, understanding how to keep a lawn properly watered can go a long way to keeping your lawn lush during the most grueling of summer swoons.

How do I know shen my lawn needs water? In general, a lawn should be watered every day during the warmer months, with the exception being days when it’s already raining. However, there are signs to indicate when a lawn is especially in need of some extra water, and that’s often when it’s suffering from wilt or dehydration.

R0011393934

* Coloration. A lawn that’s beginning to change color

likely needs extra water. In general, a lawn that’s wilting under summer heat will begin to turn bluish-green. * Shape of the grass blades. Healthy grass blades should be straight. However, grass that is suffering from wilt or dehydration will begin to curl. This might not be as noticeable to the naked eye as discoloration, but lawn care enthusiasts will notice this change of shape. * Imprints. Footprints won’t remain on a healthy lawn, but a lawn that’s wilting or dehydrating will likely be littered with footprints.

Which watering method is effective? Watering techniques can vary depending on the size of the lawn. Many times portable sprinklers are adequate, not to mention inexpensive. When purchasing a portable sprinkler, consider the area you will be watering. Portable sprinklers often vary in their range, so be sure any portable sprinkler you purchase will be able to reach the entirety of the area you intend to water. When purchasing a sprinkler, it’s also important to consider the shape of the

area the sprinkler will be watering. For example, an oscillating sprinkler is best suited for a large, rectangular area, whereas revolving sprinklers are best suited to smaller, circular areas. Another effective means to watering a lawn is to purchase a supplementary sprinkler for those smaller areas that might go unwatered. These can be areas under a tree, beneath a backyard deck, or any other area that might be blocked from an existing irrigation system. Such areas still need water, even if they are shaded most, if not all, of the day.

How can i maximize water i’m allowed to use? Many areas, particularly those with especially hot summers, place watering restrictions during times of drought. As a result, homeowners are often looking for ways to maximize the water they are legally allowed to use. In general, morning is the most efficient time to water. That’s because less water is lost to evaporation and wind drift in the morning, when the temperature is generally cooler and the summer breeze is not as strong as it will be later in the day.

Say â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Au Revoirâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; To Odor Springtime is the best time to get your home and outdoor equipment ready for the approaching warm weather, and the sooner you start the sooner you will be ready to enjoy the spring and summer months. Here are some suggestions to make your home as healthy and as clean as possible.

Get Rid Of Mold And Mildew When the house is closed up tight for the winter, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy for mold and mildew to take hold and grow, and such growths can adversely affect your respiratory system while potentially causing sinus congestion and eye irritation. Mold and mildew growth also creates unsightly stains, damaging paint and wall finishes as a result. Spray

Nine(R) Cleaner/Disinfectant is very effective at controlling mold and mildew, addressing not only existing mold and mildew around the house, but also preventing any future problems. Further prevent mildew by venting bathrooms or opening a window to dry out the room after showering. Also check for and remedy any leaks that can contribute to mold and mildew growth. In attics, basements and utility rooms, consider the use of a desiccant, which will remove moisture from the air.

Protect against allergens, viruses and bacteria Effectively cleaning a home can involve several preventive measures to keep everyone free from viruses

Readying a home for fresh, spring days also entails ridding its interior of odor. Spray Nine(R) Brand Odor Eliminator neutralizes offensive odors on contact by â&#x20AC;&#x153;cagingâ&#x20AC;? their molecules so they are no longer detectable to the nose. Homeowners can eliminate odors in their kitchens, carpets and even their musty basements, ensuring the home is odor-free for the long winter months ahead. In lieu of smoke and pet odors, Odor Eliminator provides a fresh floral scent and can even be added to compatible cleaning solutions to freshen the home as you clean. Think about adding houseplants as well. Plants are natural air filters and can go a long way toward cleaning the air of contaminants and odors.

When it comes time to getting your hands dirty, it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter if there are rolling hills or a single container filled with soil on which to plant. Although many gardening professionals present plans for largerscale gardens, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s possible to create smaller-scale options that require a great deal less maintenance and upkeep. To get started, homeowners or apartment dwellers need to first look at the space they have. Perhaps this is a few flower pots or a small square of exposed dirt in an otherwise concrete jungle. Others may have an expansive backyard in which to toil in the soil. Either way, knowing what you have to work with can help home gardeners map out a more

successful plan of action. Next, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to consider the climate and the soil conditions. Soil can be amended to a point, but plants that require a lot of water may not do well in an area plagued by drought. Color is another thing to consider. Gardeners with smaller spaces may want to think about keeping gardens mainly monochromatic, which will look more cohesive. Coolcolored flowers and plants will help make a garden look larger. Warm-colored flowers will add impact and could create a cozier feel. Hanging baskets and raised containers can add height and free up more floor space for gardens. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re particularly helpful when space is at a premium. Keep in mind that baskets and containers tend to dry out easily, so using peat moss, vermiculite and other products that tend to hold onto water will help keep the soil moist. These containers also may need

frequently.

Containers also can be used to plant small trees or shrubs. Use them for vegetable plants as well. The advantage to containers is they can be moved elsewhere if a plant is not thriving in a particular area. People who have an extremely space with which to work may be limited to a few flower pots in the window, but they can easily grow herbs or annual flowers. Those who have a large space may want to consider breaking the landscape down into smaller quadrants; otherwise, the garden can seem unruly. Use landscape materials, such as mulch, rocks, boulders, and slate to break up the greenery (and also cut down on items that need pruning and watering). Individuals who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know where to start can page through gardening magazines for ideas. Alternatively, they can consult with an area landscaper to find out which plants will do well.

New tent shelter for lawn bowlers John Curry john.curry@metroland.com

EMC sports - Let the games begin. Lawn bowling action at the Goulbourn Lawn Bowling Club’s facility beside the Goulbourn Town Hall (former Goulbourn municipal building) at Stanley’s Corners is now open for the season. Bowling is happening every Monday, Wednesday and Friday morning from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. with treats and refreshments with conversation afterwards. And this year these refreshments and conversation will be taking place in a new tent shelter that has been erected at the lawn bowling green. This will provide a relaxing spot where lawn bowlers can stay out of the sun or inclement weather while enjoying themselves right beside the lawn bowling green. This new tent shelter was erected on Thursday, May 3, just in time for the opening of the season. The Goulbourn Lawn Bowling Club and the city of Ottawa cooperated in the purchase of this new shelter, with the city supplying matching funds of about $7,000. The city of Ottawa has also fully funded a new mower for the lawn bowling green to the tune of $7,900. The Goulbourn Lawn Bowling Club is always open to new members. It is a very

economical sport, with the cost of lawn bowling for the first year being only $60. In addition, the Club supplies the lawn bowls. All a new bowler needs is a pair of flat soled shoes, shorts and a light top. You will receive lots of instruction and advice on how to play the game. For those who cannot bowl during the day, the Club is now offering lawn bowling on Tuesday and Thursday evenings starting at 6:30 p.m. Lawn bowling is a game that suits people from teens through to seniors because of its leisurely pace, its reliance on skill and its non-contact nature. And, first and foremost, it is a game that is mostly played outdoors, with lots of opportunity for conversation and enjoying the fresh air. The objective in lawn bowling is to roll biased (that means that they are weighted, i.e. not perfectly round so that they will curve and bend as they move along the green) bowls so that they stop as close as possible to a smaller ball called a “jack” which has been placed at the other end of the green. For more information about the Goulbourn Lawn Bowling Club and the upcoming season, please contact Club president George Burns-Nichol at 613-831-0939 or email him at gjbn@rogers.com

Protesting export of asbestos John Curry john.curry@metroland.com

represents the world’s fourth largest production of chrysotile asbestos. This export of asbestos to developing nations is being done despite the fact that the World Health Organization estimates that asbestos kills at least 90.000 people a year which is about half of all occupational cancer deaths. In Canada, strict occupational health and safety rules prevent the exposure of Canadian workers to the materials. Such rules are not prevalent in developing nations. Asbestos ends up killing since it sheds tiny dust fibres continuously. Once inhaled,

these fibres become tangled with lung tissues where they cause cancer, typically lung cancer, asbestosis and mesothelioma. These are killers. The current Canadian government of the Conservatives supports the continuing mining and exporting of asbestos in Quebec. So does the Bloc Quebecois. But the New Democratic Party, the Liberal Party and the Green Party all advocate for the end of asbestos exports. For more information about the export of asbestos from Canada, go to the website www.canadianasbestosexports.ca

Dwyer Hill Road, between Bleeks Road and Franktown Road, will be resurfaced over the next few months. The contract has been awarded to Karson Konstruction but a start date has not yet been determined. For anyone headed in the North Gower/Kemptville direction, McCordick Road will undergo hard surfacing between Century Road & Roger Stevens Drive. In addition, Donnelly Drive/Fourth Line Road will be resurfaced between Dilworth & Merlyn Wilson. You can also expect to see gravel road resurfacing done on the following roads: Fallowfield Road (west of Dwyer Hill Road), Black’s Side Road, Crawford Road, Kettles Road, McCaffrey Trail, McLinton Road, Soldier’s Line Road and Munster Road. These roads are scheduled in accordance with the 4-year cycle that involves the placement, levelling and compaction of 2-4 inches of new gravel. Crews will also restore the proper shape of the road, if required, in order to provide proper drainage. Following this work, calcium chloride will be applied to stabilize the road and provide dust control. Notice of Public Meetings There will be a public meeting on May 16th, 2012 at the Richmond Arena in the upstairs hall. The intent will be to discuss two separate development applications. The two applications are for Jock River Estates - 471 Sangeet Place and Riverbend Golf Course – 8089 Franktown Road. The meeting begins at 7:00pm with discussion on the Riverbend application. The Jock River Estates application will be discussed at 8:00pm.

Michel Dubord and Barbara Martin.

Jock River Estates is located on Sangeet Place, just west of the Richmond Legion. This application is to allow 11 lots within Phase 2 of the existing development. The Riverbend application consists of a 26 lot country estate subdivision to the west of the existing golf course. Heron Lakes Estates is directly to the west of this proposed development. The development would consist of two roads, one entering off of Franktown Road with 21 lots, and the other would come in from Copeland Road and consisting of 5 lots. Another upcoming meeting will take place on May 23rd, 2012 at 6:30pm at the Goulbourn Town Hall to discuss the possible regulation of outdoor wood burning boilers. I am unable to attend this meeting, but I do encourage residents to attend and provide feedback on this issue. The proposed bylaw would set out parameters within which these boilers could be placed on rural properties. They would not be permitted within a village boundary and there would be setback requirements where they are permitted. I’m not entirely convinced that we need to regulate this issue, but I welcome any and all feedback on the subject. Community Garage Sales This Saturday, May 12th is Munster Community Yard Sale Day. Residents throughout the village will simultaneously host garage sales while rural residents from outside the village can set up at the Munster Community Centre. On this very same day is the Richmond Community Garage Sale as well, so why not jump in the car and take a drive around Goulbourn. Remember, one person’s trash is another person’s treasure! If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please email me at Scott.Moffatt@ ottawa.ca or give me a shout at 613-580-2491.

EMC news - The intersection of Stittsville Main Street and Abbott Street in Stittsville sees a constant flow of traffic in the 5 p.m. time frame each day. And on Wednesday, May 2, these motorists passing by Village Square Park at this intersection got to witness political protest in action. That’s because Rev. Michel Dubord of Richmond and three supporters – his wife Kathy Gagne-Dubord, Gary Miller and Barbara Martin – were there, standing at the corner of Village Square Park facing the busy intersection, participating in a silent vigil to protest Canada’s export of cancer-causing asbestos. The giant sign behind which they stood for the hourlong protest vigil from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. said it all: “End Export of Canadian Cancer – Asbestos”, giving a website for more information – Canadianasbestosexports.ca. A protest vigil will be held at Village Square Park every Wednesday in May from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. Everyone is welcome to join in at the vigil. Rev. Dubord began these protest vigils at Memorial Park in Richmond every Wednesday in April. He has now moved the protest to Stittsville and after these May protests in Stittsville, the vigils may move on to Kanata. There was a constant flow of traffic through the intersection during the hour of the protest on Wednesday, May 2. There were a few honks of support, some supportive waves of support and many, many glances at the protesting group and their sign. That is one reason why Rev. Dubord has undertaken these protest vigils against Canada’s policy to export asbestos – to raise awareness of the situation. Indeed, Gary Miller, one of those who joined Rev. Dubord in this initial Stittsville vigil and who also involved in the Richmond vigils, said that he had believed that the export of asbestos to other countries had probably been banned when the use of asbestos was stopped in Canada. He now realizes that this is not the case and he is not happy with Canada’s policy of allowing such asbestos exports. Rev. Dubord says that protesting against this Canadian policy is frustrating because the federal government is not even willing to dialogue on the matter. He says that letters of protest about the situation go unanswered. For Rev. Dubord, this is a very personal crusade. He has not used his position as rector of St. John the Baptist Anglican Church in Richmond to advance his views. However, the Anglican Diocese of Ottawa is taking steps to raise its concerns against the export of asbestos by Canada. Rev. Dubord notes that exposure to asbestos in the countries to which Canada is exporting the substance will cause health problems, per-

haps not today but certainly down the road as the asbestos fibres penetrate the lungs of its handlers and start causing respiratory and cancer problems and eventually a prolonged death. He says that it makes a difference to protest Canada’s policy to export asbestos because it tells those whose health has been adversely affected that there are people who care. Chrysotile asbestos is mined in Quebec and exported to developing countries with the support of the current Canadian government. Asbestos mining in Quebec

I’m sure you’ve all heard the joke before; Ottawa has two seasons: winter and construction. Well, I suppose there is a little truth to that joke and I just wanted to give residents a heads up on what to expect this summer in terms of road work in our communities.

VIDEO AND POSTER CONTEST The Coalition of Citizens against the expansion of the Carp Road Dump is organizing a contest aimed at bringing attention to the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;No Dumpâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; campaign by involving youth. In an effort to reach out to the community and in continuing their support of the Earth Day objectives, the coalition is running a video contest for students in grades 7-12, with a prize of $2,500 and a separate poster contest for students in kindergarten and up to grade 6. There is a $500 prize for the winning entry. Full information on the contest can be found at www.nodump,ca <http://www.nodump,ca/>. This is a major issue in Stittsville as you know so I encourage you to get the youth involved. The more support, the better!

EMERALD ASH BORER INFORMATION UPDATE In 2008, City Council approved a high level approach (report ACS2008-COS-SOP-0012) to address the Emerald Ash Borer (â&#x20AC;&#x153;EABâ&#x20AC;?) issue. It was laid out in 5 steps: r3FHVMBUJPOPGXPPENPWFNFOUBOEEJTQPTBM r5SFFSFNPWBM r4FMFDUJWFUSFFJOKFDUJPOT r1SPBDUJWFUSFFQMBOUJOHBOESFQMBDFNFOUUSFFQMBOUJOHBOE  r1VCMJD$POTVMUBUJPO0VUSFBDI Each year since, staff have updated City Council on their progress and have provided Council with a rationale regarding any changes to their approach. There are a couple of factors to consider when examining the next steps about EAB: 1. The actual location of populations of the insect and, 2. Trends for the spread. Next Steps - The City estimates that there are 75,000 Ash trees on City streets. Thankfully, not all are infested at this time. For this reason, staff will continue to monitor, expand the injection program and expand the inter-planting program to help ensure that the Ash tree is around for future generations in some form.

EMC news - Calling all youthful artists! Original art illustrating the theme “Life in Your Village” is being sought for a new children’s art show called “Art Jam” which is being held in conjunction with this year’s annual Artists & Authors in the Park event at Village Square Park in Stittsville on Sunday, May 27. The Stittsville Village Association (SVA), hosts of Artists & Authors in the Park, is teaming up with elemenopaint, a Stittsville-based art program for youngsters, to offer this first-ever children’s art show at this May event. “We’re thrilled to introduce a children’s art show as part of Artists & Authors in the Park this year,” says Tanya Hein, cochair of Artists & Authors in the Park for the SVA. “The aim of this themed show is to connect our children to art and to their community,” she adds. Art Jam, this children’s art show, is open to entries of artwork of all kinds done by artists from age 4 through 12. Children have the opportunity to use a favourite art tool, be it a pencil, a pen or a paint brush, to produce a drawing or painting that shows the village of Stittsville just how they see it. Inspiration for art is everywhere in the community. There are reminders of the past from its historic buildings to its surrounding farm land. There are open spaces, parks, Poole Creek, wetlands, the Trans Canada Trail and a bustling commercial sector. There are flowers, trees and play apparatus. There are family members, sports teams and more. There is so much in the village of Stittsville, all of which can provide the subject for artwork. To participate in Art Jam, this children’s art show, artists aged 4 to 12 can submit original art work of Stittsville that illustrates the theme “Life in Your Village.” This artwork can be done by an individual or by a group such as a class. Submission will be accepted at the office of city of Ottawa Stittsville ward councillor Shad Qadri up until Sunday, May 20. This office is located at the Goulbourn Recreation Complex on Shea Road. Submissions can be no larger than 8 x 11 inches or 11 x 14 inches and, if on paper, must be backed on coloured construction paper or card stock for display purposes. If using canvas, paintings must be no larger than 12 x 16 inches. Sculpture will also be considered but must not be too large as display space is limited. Collaborative art pieces are not limited to the size restrictions for individual art. The artist’s name, age and grade and the title of the drawing must be included on the front of the artwork. Contact information must be included on the back of the artwork. Those who wish to have the art work returned following the show must indicate this on the back of the work. Artwork will be made available for pickup by calling Tanya Hein at 613-686-1842 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Otherwise, all artwork submitted will remain with the Stittsville Village Association. This “Art Jam” children’s art show is one of several children’s activities that are part of this year’s Artists & Authors in the Park event on Sunday, May 27 from 12 noon to 5 p.m. at Village Square Park in Stittsville. There will also be a storytime program hosted by the Stittsville branch of the Ottawa Public Library and an art workshop directed by elemenopaint, a Stittsville-based art program for youngsters.

Artist selected for fire hall art John Curry

john.curry@metroland.com

EMC news - Artist Michael Kinghorn will be creating the public art at the new Ottawa Fire Service station 46 on Iber Road in Stittsville. He has been selected as the winner in the competition that the city has held for the creation of this new public art. Mr. Kinghorn will be developing, designing and implementing original public art based on community interaction, dialogue and collaboration leading to creation of this artwork. As an artist, Mr. Kinghorn has been exploring the use of found objects since 1987. Using his skills as a blacksmith and welder, he recycles these objects into inspirational sculptural works. He combines found objects with layers of steel and copper, working with geometric forms. In this way, he creates unique pieces that explore life in the 21st century.

Since 1994, Mr. Kinghorn has been forging decorative ironwork and creating sculptures He also periodically teaches students and trains apprentices. The city of Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s public art program commissions the work of artists for display in public spaces. One percent of funds from municipal projects such as new fire stations is set aside for public art at the site. This artwork serves to enhance the unique character of the facility, giving it a sense of identity while also ensuring that art is in the public domain and accessible to everyone. The cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Community Arts program initiated a request for qualifications to create sitespecific artwork for the new Iber Road fire station.

Laura Harvey dances her way to Montreal and Paris Special to the News

EMC news - To be selected for the Dance World Cup in Montreal this summer for not just one but two dance solos. Amazing. To be one of just seven dancers out of 1116 dancers from 30 studios chosen to receive a scholarship to attend the Paris Summer Dance Tour. Awesome. But this is what has happened for 13 year old Laura Harvey of Richmond, who dances at The Dance Studio & Boutique in Stittsville.

This all happened when The Dance Studio & Boutique’s competitive dance team recently attended 5678 Showtime’s regional competition at Mont Tremblant. In addition to hosting a number of these regional competitions through North America, each summer 5678 Showtime hosts the Dance World Cup which is an international competition involving dancers from four continents. The first Dance World Cup was held in Vancouver in

2008 and it has been held each year since then in a Canadian city. Dancers for the Dance World Cup are selected by the judges at the regional competitions based on a combination of their scores and the overall impression that they make on the judges. For Laura Harvey, who is a grade eight student at Goulbourn Middle School, she had both her ballet demi-pointe and ballet pointe solos selected for competition at this

summer’s Dance World Cup in Montreal. But, in addition, Laura was also one of just seven dancers out of 1116 dancers from 30 studios in the competition chosen to receive a scholarship to attend the Paris Summer Dance Tour which is directed by SDF Productions. This also was a selection made by the judges at the regional competition. The judge who announced Laura’s selection praised her commitment to all of her

ing the summer, beginning on Monday, July 16 and on Monday, July 23 and running from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. throughout the week at a cost of $99 plus HST per week. Competitive dance team tryouts at The Dance Studio & Boutique for the upcoming 2012-2013 season will be held at the studio on Wednesday, June 13 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. For more information about any of these special events and activities, please call The Dance Studio & Boutique at 613-831-1010 or call Christine Delorme at home at 613832-3516.

dances and for dancing from within throughout the entire weekend competition. At the Paris Summer Dance Tour, dancers spend part of each day attending master classes in various forms of dance while they enjoy the sights and culture of Paris for the other part of the day. Christine Delorme, director of The Dance Studio & Boutique in Stittsville, who has been Laura Harvey’s ballet teacher since she began dancing at the age of 7, says that she is not surprised by Laura’s success. Proud of Laura for her accomplishments to date, she describes Laura as a very talented young dancer who has earned these latest honours as a result of her years of dedication and hard work dancing. She feels that the Paris Dance Tour offers the chance of a lifetime for any young dancer and she is truly hoping that Laura will be able to go.

Hornets win Special to the News

EMC sports - An opening game loss was the only hiccup as the Goulbourn Hornets Major Bantam boys’ basketball team marched to victory in Division 3 (of 14) in the recent Ontario Cup Provincial Championships. This provincial championship also settled any debate

over Eastern Ontario Basketball Association (EOBA) supremacy in the Hornets’ favour. The Hornets found themselves placed in a pool in the championship with two teams which had defeated them at an early season tournament, the North Toronto Huskies and Advantage Titans, as well as

the number one seeded team, Riverside. So the road to victory was not going to be easy for the Hornets. Indeed, the Hornets did themselves no favours by losing their first game of the tournament 46-34 to the Advantage Titans of Ajax. This meant that the Hornets had to win their remaining first round games in order to make the playoffs. Facing a must-win situation, the Hornets next faced

the number one seed Riverside Falcons from Windsor. The Falcons grabbed a 27-20 halftime lead thanks to five three-pointers. The Hornets came back to outscore Riverside by 12 points in the second half thanks to good defense, accurate shot making and offensive penetration that led to layups or fouls. In the end, the Hornets prevailed by a 5348 score. Their playoff hopes were still alive. Next up, though, were the North Toronto Huskies, a team which had defeated the Hornets back in December and which had also eliminated the Hornets from the 2011 Ontario Cup. The Hornets came out buzzing, using a pressure defense, strong rebounding and scoring from five different players to jump into a 15-2 lead after the first quarter. The Hornets led 29-12 at halftime but the North Toronto Huskies did not give up, narrowing the score to 54-50 with two minutes left in the game. But there was no denying the Hornets in this game as they took command of the dying minutes of the game and ended up winning by a 60-50 score. This win ensure a sec-

ond place finish in their pool for the Hornets and, more importantly, a berth in semi-final action. The Hornets had to face the Gloucester Wolverines, their crosstown rivals, in semi-final action as the Wolverines had finished first in their round robin play. This ended up being a de facto EOBA AAA championship game, featuring the top two teams in EOBA league play, since the EOBA championships had been cancelled due to scheduling problems. In the final minute, the score was tied but the Hornets,

attacking the basket, drew a foul. Two clutch free throws gave the Hornets a 54-52 victory, a berth in the championship final and EOBA bragging rights for the season. In the championship final, the Hornets went up against the Advantage Titans from Ajax, the team that had defeated the Hornets in opening game action. In the fourth quarter, the Hornets sunk nine of ten free throws on their way to becoming Ontario Division 3 champions with a 51-42 victory. It was a storybook ending to the season for the Hornets.

The Keay family of Jim Keay Ford Lincoln are providing another huge assist to CHEO this spring by once again donating a 2012 Ford Fiesta which will be won by a participant in the upcoming CN Cycle for CHEO. The announcement was made during a special event at the Jim Keay’s Orleans dealership on February 23 which featured an autograph session with Ottawa Senators Chris Phillips, Matt Carkner and Peter Regin. It was a busy night with lots of happy

fans including three incredible patient representatives from CHEO. The McDonald’s Dream Team – Micaela Egan (9), Trevor Young (14) and Jeremy Melara (5) – were all smiles as they were presented with autographed sticks by the Keay family and their Senators heroes. The three CHEO cancer patients will be cycling or walking on behalf of all the kids at CHEO in the CN Cycle for CHEO on Sunday, May 6th. The vehicle donation by Jim Keay is his way of encouraging the community to

raise as much money as possible for CHEO and to come out cycle or walk along with these kids at the CN Cycle. Registered participants will earn a ballot to win the 2012 Ford Fiesta for each $250 raised through fundraising for the event and the lucky winner will be announced at the event. The Keay family and the staff at Jim Keay Ford Lincoln encourage you to participate and support your local children’s hospital. For complete details please visit www.cncycle.ca.

SECTION 2

Miteau and Katie are fans of stepdancing John Curry john.curry@metroland.com

EMC news - Eleven year old Miteau Butsknrikdze likes the reel. Twelve year old Katie Shepherd likes jigs. But whether reel or jig, both are fans of stepdancing. They will be among the dancers taking part in the upcoming tenth annual Ot-

tawa Fiddle and Stepdancing Competition Weekend at the Richmond Curling Club in Richmond on the May long weekend. Miteau has been stepdancing for two years and enjoys doing the reel which he quite simply says it â&#x20AC;&#x153;the best dance in the world.â&#x20AC;? He points out that stepdanc-

ing is not only a lot of fun but its also healthy because the dancer has to move so much. He likes taking part in stepdancing competitions like the one coming up in Richmond. He placed second in a competition at the Metcalfe Fair last year but there is more to taking part in the competitions than winning. Miteau likes

the way that a dancer gets to meet other dancers at such competitions. He also says that it is fun dancing in front of a crowd. He also says that competitions help a dancer realize what is being done well and what moves need improvement. Katie Shepherd has been stepdancing for about three years now. She used to dance ballet and jazz but she saw a stepdancing show and since it looked like fun, she tried it and she has stuck with it. She likes it because it is very energetic and upbeat dancing. She competed in the Rich-

mond competition last year and will be there again this year. This Ottawa Fiddle and Stepdance Competition Weekend in Richmond will be happening from Friday, May 18 through Sunday, May 20 at the Richmond Curling Club on Perth Street. Friday, May 18 will see an evening dance held starting at 7:30 p.m. with everyone welcome to attend. The actual fiddle and stepdance competition begins on Saturday, May 19 and runs through Sunday, May 20. While it is a competition, it is also virtually non-stop entertainment, so if you enjoy

stepdancing and fiddle and piano music, this is the place for you. On Saturday, May 19, the competition gets underway at 11 a.m. with an evening show at 6:30 p.m. On Sunday, May 20, the competition begins again at 1 p.m. with an evening finals showcase starting at 7 p.m. In the competition, there are 11 stepdancing categories and 10 fiddling categories, with everyone from the youngest to seniors competing. For more information about this competition and ticket and pass prices, please check out the website www.ottawafiddlestepdance.ca

Then I was left to shudder and shake as I wended my way through the summer kitchen, then the back shed and out into the black night, around the clump of cedars to the little building which served as our bathroom. My three brothers never bothered to take a light with them when they went out at

night, but I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even go into the back shed without a lantern, so frightened was I. WIND HOWLING

If it was a bad night, with wind howling through the trees and the shed door rattling like someone was trying to break in, I would take Sport, our old collie dog, with me and make him stay outside the door of the privy. Then I would tear back into the house like someone possessed, never taking a backward glance, in case something evil was on my heels. My brother Emerson delighted in terrifying me and he was always able to pull off some terrible deed without Mother noticing, which was a real talent of his. When I headed for the privy one night, it happened to be one of those nights when the wind howled and a pounding rain was beating against the shed door. I had squirmed in my chair

at the kitchen table, until it was impossible to wait any longer. Audrey was talking on the phone on the wall to her friend Iva and my three brothers were busy at the things they liked to do at night, playing Snap, whittling, and Emerson drawing the glass buildings he was sure were going to change the world. I was doomed to go out alone. Father took the lantern off the bench near the back door and put a match to the wick. I stood at the door leading out into the summer kitchen hoping someone would offer to go with me. No one budged. I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even find Sport. He was probably in the barn hiding from the pounding rain and wind. I had no choice. I was on my own. I went through the summer kitchen and I could hear the rain pounding on the tar-paper roof, and pulled open the shed door which was no easy feat at any time. It never quite fitted right and by the time I got it open, the lantern was flickering and the rain met me full in the face. I ran the few feet behind the cluster of trees like someone possessed, slammed into the privy, bringing the lantern in behind me. It didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take me long to finish the job at hand, but I

here was nothing that frightened me more than going out to the outhouse alone at night. This time of year, when a sudden howling wind and rain storm could strike at any minute, my fear was magnified many times over. By the time May rolled around, Mother had put away the Jerry pots from under the beds and we were expected to go to the outhouse regardless of the time of day or night. Sometimes at night I could persuade my sister Audrey to go with me, but if she was busy with her scrapbooks at the kitchen table, it took a lot of coaxing to budge her

sat there trying to muster up the courage for the return trip back to the house. Well, I had two choices: face it or spend the night in the privy. I grabbed the lantern and tore towards the shed. I was sure I had left the door open, but it was closed. It opened inward, and I

Food facts: cinnamon, Public meetings plans potato chips and Campbellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s John Curry

News Staff

O

ften when Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m reading about food, I come across interesting bits of information. In this weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s column, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m passing along some food trivia that I thought you might enjoy. The most popular spices in the United States used to be cinnamon and black pepper. In 1986, more than 11 million kilograms of cinnamon were consumed. In the same year, pepper consumption was more than 34 million kilograms. Shredded wheat cereal was developed by a middle-aged lawyer in the 1890s. Kool-Aid has been around for more than 90 years. Shopping carts were invented by an observant grocer who noticed that his customers stopped buying when the small basket on their arm became too heavy. Once upon a time there were no potato chips. S mechanical potato slicer was invented in the 1920s and by the early 1930s, Fritoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Layâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s potato chips were introduced and the rest, as they say, is history. An ordinary potato chip is only about 1.5 millimetres thick. Some, however, such as certain brands of ridged chips are twice as thick. There has never been a real

PAT TREW Food â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Stuff Betty Crocker. She was ďŹ rst introduced as a homemaker by General Mills in 1921, but it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t until 1936 that her face was shown. Since then, her face, hairstyle and clothing have been changed at least seven times. In 1936, she had short, marcel-waved hair. In 1972, her hair was a lightlyteased, more bouffant style and by 1986, she had taken on a blow-dry look. The inventor of peanut butter was an American doctor who, in the 1890s, ground up peanuts as a nutritious, easily digested food for his older patients. More than 300 uses have been discovered for peanuts, including shampoo and shoe polish. There are over 20,000 edible plants in the world, but most of the food we grow comes from only 20 species. Campbellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, a name synonymous with soup, was founded in 1869. By 1905, it marketed 21 varieties of con-

densed soup, plus pork and beans in a can. The company continued to develop new products over the years. In the period between 1980 and 1986 alone, more than 400 food products were created. In 1920, Charles Ranhofer, former chef of Delmonicoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s restaurant, wrote The Epicurean, over 1,000 pages on the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Culinary Artâ&#x20AC;?. It included information on table and wine service, menu suggestions for a variety of restaurant meals, as well as for breakfasts, dancing parties, garden parties, supper buffets and ladiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; luncheons. He stated that a 14-course dinner, served with 10-minute intervals, would take 2 hours and 20 minutes. The meal would start with oysters and soup, then a ďŹ sh course, a course such as beef tenderloin, an entree of perhaps turkey and pheasant, a roast course with one or two meat roasts, salads, and hot and cold desserts.

Championships for Stittsville Bantam B3 Storm Special to the News

EMC sports - A regular season that included 19 wins, 3 ties and only 2 losses. Impressive. Winning the regular season championship with this record. Awesome. And following this up with the Bantam B playoff championship. Priceless. But this was the story of the 2011-2012 season for the Stittsville Bantam B3 Storm, a season not only of winning and championships but one of player growth and team bonding. The coaching staff of Brent Belanger, Glen Barry and Peter Capello, who led the team

to its winning season thanks to their solid hockey know how and respect, was impressed with the playersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; dedication, hard work and commitment to the team and to each other throughout the season. But in addition, everyone had a lot of fun as well, a necessary ingredient for a great season. Adding to the aura of success which the Storm enjoyed this past season were the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parent volunteers and local sponsors including Morin Building Supplies, Willyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pizza and CREO Marketing, all of which contributed to this story of success.

It then happened near Bells Corners until it shiefted to

peacefully with wildlife and provides humane, cost-effective ways to prevent or solve wildlife conflicts. The Rideau Valley Wildlife Sanctuary has cared for more than 2,000 animals since 2005. The Rideau Valley Wildlife Sanctuary was going to have to shut down its services this year until a recent outpouring of support resulted in $100,000 in donations being given by supporters all across Canada. This donated funding has allowed the Rideau Valley Wildlife Sanctuary to open with limited capacity as of Wednesday, May 2 with full operational capacity to be restored by the middle of this month. The need for the Rideau Valley Wildlife Sanctuaryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wild mammal expertise has increase by 447 percent since the Sanctuary first opened in 2005. That year a total of 95 sick and orphaned animals were admitted. By 2011, a total of 520 animals were admitted during the year. The Rideau Valley Wildlife Sanctuary receives no government funding but relies entirely on donations and grants to provide its services.

EMC news - There will be garage sales galore in Richmond this Saturday, May 12. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the day of Richmondâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Village Wide Garage Sale event, with over 30 individual garage sales now registered on the Richmond Village Association website at www.rva1997.wordpress. com and more coming in. Those interested can download a map showing the location of the various garage sales at http://g.co/maps/p3cdd Another way of finding the garage and yard sales taking place this Saturday, May 12 in Richmond is by using your smart phone. Check out Yard Sale Mapper or Garage Sale Rover available for both iPhone and Android. Use â&#x20AC;&#x153;Richmond, ONâ&#x20AC;? or K0A 2Z0 as your search criteria and watch all of the garage sales pop up. Note, though, that only the garage sales that are posted on Craigâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s List show up on these apps. You can increase your chances of having a successful, perhaps booming, garage sale by holding it on this Richmond Village-Wide Garage Sale Day, along with many of your neighbours and fellow village residents. The RVA is coordinating all the locations and is producing an overall map of the village, showing the sites of all of the garage sale locations and listing any special details of note about them. This map will be available for downloading from the Richmond Community website at www.rva1997.wordpress.com or will be available for pickup at Christopherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Meat Market on Perth Street or at Kingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s valu-mart at the Richmond Plaza. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be lots of garage sale enthusiasts prowling the village on that day, map in hand, seeking out garage sales. You should make sure that your garage sale is on the map. You can do this easily, by simply emailing the details and location of your garage sale to rva.general.inbox@gmail.com or drop of this information at Christopherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Meat Market on Perth Street or at Kingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s valu-mart at the Richmond Plaza. Local real estate agencies are also partnering with the RVA again this year for this Richmond Wide Garage Sale Day, providing garage sale signs for use by residents in advertising their sale location on Garage Sale Day, Saturday, May 12. Residents will be able to stop by at the four participating agencies starting on Tuesday, May 1 and pick up a garage sale sign to place along the roadside advertising the location of a garage sale. The participating real estate agencies are the Royal LePage Team (Cydney Green) at 3441 McBean Street; Keller Williams â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Solid Rock Realty (Michaela Criper at 26 Gamble Drive); Coldwell Banker Coburn Realty (Linda Williams at 3777 Strandherd Drive); and Remax Metro-City Realty Brokerage (Bonnie Jensen at 6159 Perth Street). So, everything is in place for everyone to have a great garage sale this Saturday, May 12 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; signage, a location map and plenty of publicity thanks to the RVA. This Richmond Wide Garage Sale Day has become a Richmond tradition in recent years, with many residents experiencing brisk action at their garage sales. It is expected that this year will follow this trend, especially if more and more residents decide to take part and have a garage sale on this particular day. After all, â&#x20AC;&#x153;the more, the merrierâ&#x20AC;? is the age-old saying and this really applies to this upcoming Richmond Wide Garage Sale Day â&#x20AC;&#x201C; having many participate will attract more shoppers and everyone will end up selling more. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a win/win situation for everyone, including the shoppers who will be in seventh heaven with so many sales to visit.

Ottawa’s #1 Soccer Club

“Everyone associated with OSU should be very proud of this outstanding achievement,” said Bill Michalopulos, Ottawa South United’s President. “This Gold Award is not just about the quality soccer program we offer, but just as important, also recognizes the strong foundation of quality governance, community involvement and forward thinking upon which the club is built.” The Ontario Soccer Association’s Club Excellence Award is a province-wide recognition program for soccer clubs that are run efficiently and offer a safe, healthy and enjoyable environment for anyone involved in soccer. The program requires Clubs to demonstrate development and execution of long term plans, strategies and policies in 4 key areas: Personnel, Governance, Community Involvement and Technical. Three different levels of Excellence were awarded for 2012: Gold, Silver and Bronze. These designations are not mandated or required by the OSA but are aspirational in nature. “As one of Canada’s leading and largest soccer clubs we must strive to demonstrate leadership in all areas of operating a soccer club” Michalopulos added. “This prestigious award from our highest governing body is another example of Ottawa South United’s long term strategic approach to developing soccer in the community for all players,” said OSU Board member Stephen Campbell. “Since forming in 2003, we have constantly strived to improve club practices to better serve our membership and players while ensuring OSU and its staff and volunteers are a big part of the Ottawa community.” There are approximately 1150 Soccer Clubs in Ontario, serving more than 375,000 outdoor players and 85,000 indoor players each year.

Learn all about shady gardening john.curry@metroland.com

EMC news - Shade is part of virtually every garden and always presents a challenge to the gardener. But gardening in shade can be rewarding. A shaded garden can possess a charm of its own featuring colours that are different in character from sun-drenched gardens. Limited sunlight does not have to be viewed as a determent but rather as a plus if the plants growing there have been selected properly. There are many colourful and interesting plants that do well in shade. In addition, the gardener must realize that there are different types of shade, ranging from heavy, almost total shade to dappled shade provided by some trees. Soil texture and the dryness of the site are also factors in having a successful shade garden.

The full story regarding gardening in the shade will be told at the upcoming May meeting of the Stittsville-Goulbourn Horticultural Society this coming Tuesday, May 15 at 7:30 p.m. at the Pretty Street Community Centre in Stittsville. Guest speaker Judith Cox will make a presentation entitled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Embrace Your Shade: An Overview of Shade Gardening.â&#x20AC;? Everyone is most welcome to attend this meeting, although there is a two dollar admission charge for non-members of the Horticultural Society. Horticultural Society memberships will be available at the door at this meeting, for the annual fee of $15. For more information about this Horticultural Society meeting or about the Horticultural Society in general, please contact Horticultural Society secretary Kate McDonald at 613-8316545.

RELOCATE TO ALMONTE Increasingly, young families and baby boomers are moving out of the city and opting to downsize into homes with exceptional value in friendly communities in the National Capital Region. Almonte is one such community, which is located about 35 minutes from downtown Ottawa and 20 minutes from Kanata. The Town of Almonte is a diverse community of rural and small towns covering 500 square kilometres of land just West of Ottawa. It was created with the amalgamation of the Wards of Pakenham, Almonte, and Ramsay in Lanark County.

Benefits of Moving to Almonte 1. Almonte is recognized for its natural and architectural beauty, quality of life, and respect for its heritage and environment. People of all ages will enjoy visiting and exploring this wonderful region. Outdoor activities are abundant in the area, thus attracting avid hikers, cyclers, swimmers, fishermen and golfers. In fact, both Pakenham and Almonte offer a variety of trails, attractions, and rivers to meet the needs of all outdoor enthusiasts. 2. It is an ideal location for those who want to escape the hustle and bustle of the city and maintain their proximity to all major city amenities, like restaurants, pubs, grocery stores, and shopping malls. It is a convenient alternative to city living for those who work in the West End of Ottawa, or in the surrounding area, such as Kanata, Nepean, Stittsville, and Carp.

3. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Almonte is special because there is a unique sense of connection between its residents,â&#x20AC;? says Doug McIntosh, co-owner of Neilcorp Homes, a local home builder. He also adds that, â&#x20AC;&#x153;People get to know their neighbours. They get involved in community events and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always lots to do, making it a community in the truest sense of the word. This is exactly what families are looking for.â&#x20AC;? 4. Moving to the area doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean giving up the creature comforts we are accustomed to in the city. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our lots are fully equipped with the municipal services you find in the city, including water, sewers, high-speed Internet and natural gas,â&#x20AC;? McIntosh assures. 5.

There is a lot of selection with regard to housing in the area. Neilcorp Homes alone is currently developing 3 housing communities in Almonte. Their homes are low maintenance, clad in brick and durable siding, and equipped with vinyl windows.

erations of family members. To others, a home small in stature but with views to die for is all a homeowner needs. While preferences may vary on the home itself, there are a few things buyers of all shapes and sizes prefer when shopping for the home of their dreams. * Agreeable weather. Vacation home shoppers often prefer year-round warm weather so they know their respite from the cold is never too far away. For example, a locale such as Port St. Lucie, Florida boasts an average temperature of 73.7* F, providing the ideal getaway to snowbound men and women stuck in the throes of winter. * Affordability. A dream home stays a dream for many people because of the misconception that it is beyond their financial reach. â&#x20AC;&#x153;While a seaside villa in Italy might never be a reality, there are places where it is still affordable to own and maintain a vacation home,â&#x20AC;? says Andrew Nadalin, President of Pace 2000 Inc. Compared to neighboring counties, St. Lucie County and Martin County represent the piece of South Florida that is still considered affordable. Endowed with the rich quality of life South Florida has to offer, both St. Lucie and Martin counties also offer and affordable cost-of-living vacationers will appreciate. * Accessibility of activities. While an escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life is great, no one wants to escape to a place with nothing to do. When shopping for a place to buy or build your dream getaway, be sure thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plenty of accessibility to popular activities like boating, fishing, diving, surfing, canoeing, or kayaking. * Proximity to other hotspots. Even if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking for a place to simply unwind, a dream homeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proximity to hotspots or other exotic locales never hurts. Port St. Lucie, for example, offers all a vacationer needs to relax and unwind, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only 90 miles from the Bahamas by boat and a short drive to Miami, Palm Beach and Orlando. * Proximity to major airports. Unless you plan on living in your vacation home year-round, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll want the home to be somewhere thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s close to major airports. This makes it easier to get to your home and flights wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be as expensive. More information on finding your dream home can be found online at www.pace2000homes.com.

REAL ESTATE Factors that might hurt a homeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s value

Your Community Newspaper

in a great location wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be as difďŹ cult to sell as a home in a bad neighborhood. But location goes beyond a neighborhoodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reputation, especially in recent years. Homeowners who live in a neighborhood or development with many foreclosures might ďŹ nd those foreclosed properties are hurting their own homeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s value. Lots of foreclosures could negatively affect a neighborhoodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reputation, which might make a home within that neighborhood less attractive to prospective buyers. * Appearance: A homeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

appearance is another obvious variable that might affect its resale value. Homeowners might want their home to reďŹ&#x201A;ect their own individuality, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not going to help when the time comes to sell the home. If the exterior paint is out of the ordinary, then it might be wise to choose a more traditional or conservative color before erecting the â&#x20AC;&#x153;For Saleâ&#x20AC;? sign out front. The same goes for a homeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interior. If the interior design is especially unique, a more traditional interior decor might help the home sell faster.

Nowadays, homeowners looking to sell their homes know itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not as easy to do so as it might have been a few years ago. A struggling economy has made it difďŹ cult for many homeowners to sell their homes for a price theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re comfortable with. But the sagging economy is not the only thing can make it difďŹ cult to sell a home. In fact, a host of other things, some obvious but some not so obvious, can hurt a homeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s value as well. * Location: A homeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s location is arguably its best or worst selling point.

As a medical oncologist at The Ottawa Hospital, Dr. Neil Reaume has treated hundreds of cancer patients – and all of them have a story to tell. “Every patient is different in their own way, and everyone has a story that’s touching,” said Reaume, who is also the director of the Hospital’s medical oncology training program. But one story he heard during the inaugural Ride the Rideau event in 2010 – The Ottawa Hospital Foundation’s signature fundraising event in support of cancer research at the Hospital – was particularly unforgettable. While volunteering as a ride guide, he met a young woman from Montreal who was riding “the biggest, clunkiest mountain bike I’d ever seen,” he recalled. “I kept running into her at the rest stations. When we saw her at the end, we congratulated her for making such good time. She admitted that she was an avid rider, but that she was riding her dad’s bike – he had died one year to the day of the ride from colon cancer. She had

Medical oncologist Dr. Neil Reaume plans to participate in the third annual event on Saturday, September 8.

found out about Ride the Rideau the week before, and raised $3,000 in just seven days. My jaw just dropped. I won’t forget that one.” The 42-year-old Reaume, who is a member of the Ottawa Triathlon Club, enjoyed the event so much that he returned to Ride the Rideau last year, the event’s second, but this time as one of the 715 riders. Over two years, the event has raised a total of $2.7 million. “The number of people who are inspired by the event is so eye-opening,” he said.

“It shows that people see value in the cause. After all, cancer is documented as the No. 1 killer in Canada. The Ride growing in leaps and bounds is a reflection of how people are embracing the cause.” While cancer touches most people’s lives, Reaume is especially grateful for the incredible success of the event. Ride the Rideau funds the work that he is involved in as a researcher, which includes international lung and kidney cancer studies, as well as other clinical trials. There are over 70 trials currently taking place at the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute, with thousands of patients taking part annually. Reaume is thrilled that there are so many people out there who are just as passionate about the fight against cancer as he is. Their enthusiasm, he said, is so inspiring that he will be registering for the third annual event on Saturday, September 8. To join Dr. Reaume in the event, or to sign up to volunteer, visit www.ridetherideau.ca.

$3,000 up for grabs John Curry john.curry@metroland.com

EMC news - A cash prize of $2,500 is up for grabs for the winning video submitted in a video and poster contest for students now underway sponsored by the Coalition of Citizen Groups opposed to a new landfill proposed for the Carp Road near Stittsville. In addition, a cash prize of $500 is to be awarded for the winning poster in the poster category of the contest. These prizes are being given in a video and poster contest for students in the Stittsville, Goulbourn, Kanata and West Carleton areas which is being sponsored by the Coalition of Citizen Groups opposed to the new landfill site. Students in grades 7 to 12 in area schools are eligible to enter a short video on the theme “Don’t Let Ottawa Go To Waste – Zero Waste to Landfill.” The winning entry, which will receive the $2,500 cash prize, may be used as part of the Coalition’s campaign to opposed the proposed new landfill site at the Waste Management site on Carp Road just north of highway 417. Students from kindergarten to grade 6 in area schools are eligible to enter a poster contest on the same theme as the video contest. The winning poster may also be used by the Coalition in its campaign against the landfill site proposal. Complete contest rules and application forms for this video and poster contest are available on the website www. nodump.ca Entries must be submitted by June 30, 2012 for consideration in the contest. This contest is part of the “Don’t Let Ottawa Go To Waste” campaign of the Coalition of Citizen Groups opposed to the new landfill proposal. This Coalition, initially formed in 2006 to oppose plans by Waste Management to expand the Carp Road landfill site, is now campaigning against Waste Management’s proposal to develop a new landfill at the site now that the previous landfill site has reached capacity and been closed. The Coalition argues that risk of further groundwater contamination, landfill odour and proximity to thousands of homes make this Carp Road site unsuitable for a landfill site. Information on the Coalition’s campaign can be found at www.nodump.ca Members of the Coalition of Citizen Groups opposed to the proposed new Carp Road landfill include the Stittsville Village Association, nodump. ca, the Richardson Corridor Community Association, Moving Mountains and OttawaLandfillWatch.org

The actual trip was preceded by a lot of fundraising to raise funds to contribute to projects in Nicaragua. There were also travel costs involved. While she and the group did some sightseeing while there, such as visiting a volcano and a breach area, Sasha helped build a house in one of the poorer areas of Managua and also helped to start the construction of a wall surrounding a school.

this trip will impact the rest of her life. She now hopes to be able to work overseas in developing countries in her future. She says that her Nicaragua trip has taught her that while people in countries like Nicaragua may not have much materially, they are still happy people. “We need to help people in other countries but we don’t need to pity them,” Sasha says, noting that the children in Nicaragua are perpetually happy with big smiles never leaving their faces. “They can just find joy in everything,” Sasha observes. She said that the trip changed her and has helped her re-focus on what’s important in life. Sasha has been involved with theatre since being in grade six, appearing in one or two productions a year.

at the same time – the Boardwide “Cinderella,” Sacred Heart’s “Alice in Wonderland” and Stittsville United Church’s “Godspell” – all in just a couple of months. But she is a fan of being involved in such theatrical productions. She says that they result in good memories, give a person the chance to meet new people and provide new experiences in life. “If it calls to you, you follow it – just go for it,” she advises those who are thinking about becoming involved in a theatre production. She wrote a murder mystery play this year which was performed in class under her direction. She enjoyed the directing as it allowed her to see her vision come to life. As an actor, she had always just embraced the vision of the director. But as a director herself, she could bring her vision of the play to the forefront, making it come to life through the actions of the actors.

She feels that paying attention in class and focusing during class time contribute to her academic success. “I think that’s the key, personally,” she says. Sasha plays the drums in the Sacred Heart concert band. She also plays the upright bass in the school’s string orchestra and is a volunteer with the school’s grade 7/8 band. She thinks that the upright bass, which has no frets, is the coolest instrument that there is. She was not able to play it at all when she began but now can manage a basic scale on it. Sasha did have a part-time job in the community but had to give it up due to the demands of being involved with three theatrical productions

Horticultural doubleheader John Curry

john.curry@metroland.com

EMC news - Saturday, May 26 will see the StittsvilleGoulbourn Horticultural Society host two events at once, something like a baseball doubleheader but for gardening. The Horticultural Society will be staging its annual plant sale on Saturday, May 26 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the parking lot at Bradleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Insurance at 1469 Stittsville Main Street beside the former Stittsville Public School, now housing the Frederick Banting Alternate Program. This plant sale will take

place rain or shine and is a great place for gardeners to acquire new and different plants for their gardens. A big plus is that these plants come from local gardens, donated by Horticultural Society members and others, and so you know that they are hardy and ďŹ&#x201A;ourish in the Stittsville climate. The Horticultural Society welcomes donations of plants for this plant sale. To donate plants for the sale or for more information about the sale, please contact Horticultural Society secretary Kate McDonald at 613-

831-6545. The other part of this May 26th event will be registration for the Horticultural Societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s junior gardeners program which will happen at the same time and same location as the plant sale: Saturday, May 26 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Bradleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Insurance parking lot at 1469 Stittsville Main Street. It also will go ahead rain or shine, just like the plant sale. This junior gardeners program is open to all children aged 6 to 18 years. Parents do not have to be members of the Horticultural Society.

An annual junior membership fee of just two dollars covers not only this junior gardeners program which includes receipt of a spring seed kit but also covers participation in summer activities and a September ďŹ&#x201A;ower show. The summer activities include craft activities such as garden rock painting. Also planned are trips to a Richmond strawberry farm and an apple orchard to pick the fruit of the season. The September ďŹ&#x201A;ower show will take place as part of the Horticultural Societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s September meeting at the Pretty

Street Community Centre. There will be three categories for entries: sunďŹ&#x201A;ower/heliopsis, one stem or seed head on a steam displayed in water; ďŹ&#x201A;ower bouquet, displayed in a jar or vase, any variety, wild or other; and garden art work,

signed, under 24 inches by 24 inches, any medium. For more information about the Stittsville-Goulbourn Horticultural Societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s junior gardeners program, please contact Penny Horeczy at 613-831-2320.
