Move over, Daniel Day-Lewis, here’s Sacred Heart’s Nick Maillet John Curry email@example.com
What an eye ball! Clara Schyf balances a ball with her head during gym activity time at the After School Program at the Goulbourn Recreation Complex in Stittsville. See page 18, 19, 20 and 21.
EMC news - The Cappies is the local high school equivalent of the Academy Awards. And so in this vein, Sacred Heart Catholic High School’s Nick Maillet compares with 2013 Oscar winner Daniel Day-Lewis who won the Academy Award as the best actor in a leading role for his portrayal of Abraham Lincoln in the Civil War-era film “Lincoln.” That’s because Nick captured the Cappies Award for best lead actor in a play at last Sunday’s Cappies Gala at the National Arts Centre (NAC) in Ottawa. Nick played the role of Robin Hood in the play “The Trials of Robin Hood” which was presented at Sacred Heart High School last April, one of 17 high school plays entered in this year’s Canada’s Capital Cappies program. Nick was not the only Sacred Heart winner at last Sunday’s Cappies Gala. The costume crew of students Michelle Dingley, Sasha Newar, Ruby Odendaal and Casandra Woodward
from “The Trials of Robin Hood” captured the Cappies Award for best costumes. These were Sacred Heart’s two Cappies Award winners at the Gala, with “The Trials of Robin Hood” receiving a total of eight nominations in this year’s Cappies judging. Sacred Heart was also among those nominated for Best Featured Actor in a Play with Paul Smith as the King’s deer; Best Featured Actress in a Play with Sasha Newar as Silla Scarlett; Best Props with the team of Kellsie Alexander, Julia Anderson, Alison McLeod and Holly Whitney; Best Sound with the duo of Sam Gauthier and Ryan MacNeil; Best Supporting Actor in a Play with Kyle Curry who was Prince John in “The Trials of Robin Hood”; and Best Play for “The Trials of Robin Hood,” a comedy that had a cast of about 50 students with more working behind the scenes. The Cappies program is driven by the efforts of student critics who travel across the city to review shows. See CAPPIES, page 2
Shakespeare in the park John Curry firstname.lastname@example.org
EMC news - Can’t get away to the Shakespearean Festival in Stratford this summer? Well, you can still get to enjoy a little bit of Shakespeare right here in Stittsville as Ottawa’s own professional Shakespeare company “A Company of Fools” will be at Alexander Grove Park to present “The Merry Wives of Windsor.” This Alexander Grove performance is the Stittsville stop in the “A
Company of Fools” annual Torchlight Shakespeare series this year, a series which begins on July 3 and runs through to Aug. 17 at various parks around the city of Ottawa. Presenting the show in different parks around the city gives residents throughout the city including here in Stittsville an opportunity to experience an outdoor Shakespeare production done by a troupe of six professional actors. See SHAKESPEARE, page 10

Cappies Gala at National Arts Centre Continued from page 1
These high school shows, both plays and musicals, are registered with the Cappies program. It is these critics who vote on the winners of the Cappies Awards in the various categories. Critics from Sacred Heart High School who reviewed a minimum of four productions and thus were able to take part in the voting included Taylor Hutchings as lead critic, Amy VanWell, Casandra Dana, Joel Curry, Kristyn Cooke, Kyle Curry, Lauren Hutchings and Morgan O’Grady. Sacred Heart High School teacher Marina Westbrook, who directed “The Trials of Robin Hood,” was also involved with last Sunday’s Canada’s Capital Cappies Gala, serving as one of three assistant directors for the event. The Gala includes not only the presentation of the Cappies Awards in the various categories but also features the presentation of scenes from each of the plays and musicals that are nominated in the best play and best musical categories. Among those serving as escorts for those receiving awards on stage at the NAC
at this year’s Gala was Joel Curry of Sacred Heart. This was the eighth annual Canada’s Capital Cappies Gala as the program began eight years ago thanks to the sponsorship of the Ottawa Citizen. This Cappies program in Ottawa is one of 15 chapters across North America. Cappies was the brainchild of a theatre arts resource teacher in Washington, D.C. where, with the assistance of teachers in the area and the Washington Post, the program began to promote high school drama and writing. It was eight years ago that Ottawa joined cities like Cincinnati, Dallas, Philadelphia

and Kansas City to become the ﬁrst Canadian city to participate in the Cappies. Since then, chapters have started in the Niagara region and in Edmonton. Cappies has high standards of excellence as student critics must attend a training day to learn about the program.

In its review of Sacred Heart’s “The Trials of Robin Hood” that was published in the Ottawa Citizen, the headline read “A Twist on a classic tale.” Student reviewer Raychel Schenk of Redeemer Christian High School wrote: “This hilarious show was exuberantly performed by Sacred Heart, and truly gave the audience an hysterically funny night to remember.” Another reviewer, Kathryn Hallet of Almonte and District High School, wrote: “Their (Sacred Heart’s) production included a great deal of audience involvement, which they executed smoothly from beginning to end.” Reviewer Rosalynn Berti of Redeemer Christian High School wrote: “Presenting the story of Robin Hood in a nearbefore-seen manner, Sacred Heart’s The Trials of Robin Hood was an enjoyable, highspirited production.” “The Trials of Robin Hood,” a play written by Will Averill, has King Richard, who has returned from the Crusades, forced to try to ﬁgure out what happened in his kingdom during his absence. He has to try
to determine if Robin Hood is a hero, a lovelorn sap or just a plain mean person. So, the story unfolds as told from the perspectives of Robin himself, Maid Marian and prince John. In an hilarious way, these three different stories are combined into one, albeit with three different endings, with the audience left to decide which one is true. “The Trials of Robin Hood” was ﬁrst performed in 2009 in Kansas and since then has been performed in various locations across the United States. The play was presented in Prague in the Czech Republic in April 2012. The performance at Sacred Heart was the ﬁrst time that the play had been presented in Canada.
Sasha Newar was one of the team which won the award for best costumes.

Provincial winner Special to the News
EMC news - Sheâ€™s a provincial gold medalist. Now this week she is in Vancouver competing in a national competition. South Carleton High School grade ten student Bethany Mowat has achieved this by participating in the Skills Canada competition, competing in the workplace safety division. â€œI think the competition not only gives you work experience but it also helps kids learn about all of the different trades in Ontario and it makes them want to try different things,â€? says Bethany. Besides winning the gold medal in her division in the provincial competition, she also got to meet Ontario premier Kathleen Wynne who met with all of the students competing. This year the competition was held at RIM Park in Waterloo, Ontario over the course of four days â€“ May 26 to May 29. Bethany competed on the last day, giving a ten minute presentation on how to use a table saw correctly and also completing a hazard assessment test. She competed against 14 others and admits that she was nervous right up until the day when she competed. â€œIt wasnâ€™t the actual competition that made me nervous,â€? she says. â€œIt was the size of it, everything was so much bigger than what I was used to.â€? South Carleton High School teacher David Code served as Bethanyâ€™s mentor before and during the competition. Indeed, he was the ďŹ rst one to suggest to Bethany the idea of competing in this Skills Canada competition. Because of her provincial gold medal win in her division, Bethany is joining 150 other students representing Team Ontario to take part in the Skills Canada national competition in Vancouver this week, competing in the workplace safety division. In Vancouver, Bethany will be competing against high school and post-secondary students from across Canada. This Skills Canada national com-
petition started in 1994 and has remained as one of the only events of its kind. Each year the competition in Ontario brings together over 500 young people from all regions of the province to compete in over 40 trade and technology areas, ranging from animation to welding. This Skills Canada competition provides an opportunity for high school and post-secondary students who are studying in a skilled trade or technology ďŹ eld to be tested against exacting standards and against others of the same age from all across Ontario. For more information about the Skills Canada competition, check out the website at http://www.skillsontario.com/ .

EMC news - Three Richmond Scouts have received the Chief Scout Award. The Chief Scout Award is the highest level of award that can be earned by a Scout. The Chief Scout Awards were presented at a special awards ceremony held by the 1st Richmond Scout Troop on Thursday, May 16, at which Richmond Scouts Alex Marriner, Cameron Toswell and Davis Gallagher received their awards.
The ceremony was attended by 1st Richmond Scout Troop members, invited guests, parents of the award recipients and the 1st Richmond Scout Troop leadership team. City of Ottawa Rideau-Goulbourn ward councillor Scott Moffatt was on hand to offer some comments and to present the recipients with special congratulatory certiďŹ cates to the three Chief Scout Award recipients on behalf of the city of Ottawa. The three recipients each gave a short speech reďŹ‚ecting upon their experiences with
the 1st Richmond Scout Troop over the past four years. One of the highlights noted was their participation in the Great Lakes Jamboree held near London, Ontario in July 2012. A short reception followed the awards ceremony. As a permanent record of their achievements, these most recent recipients of the Chief Scout Award have had their names engraved on the Richmond Scoutsâ€™ Chief Scout Trophy. To earn the Chief Scout Award, a Scout must be certiďŹ ed in Standard First Aid, must have performed at least eight community service projects
and must have earned the World Conservation Award, among other requirements. Earning the Chief Scout Award is a multiyear effort requiring a Scout to set challenging goals and to work consistently toward them with some leader assistance. The Chief Scout Award is not easily achieved. Within the Scouts Canada Voyageur Council, to which the 1st Richmond Scout Troop belongs, only 57 out of the 1,150 Scout Troop members will be receiving the Chief Scout Award this year. A Voyageur Council awards ceremony to honour these Chief Scout Award recipients is being planned for Ottawa this month.

Food Bank chair Theresa Qadri presented a plaque of acknowledgement to Stittsville News EMC editor John Curry at the Food Bank’s annual general meeting on Monday, May 27. The plaque from the Stittsville Food Bank reads: “We gratefully acknowledge the sustained contribution over several years of John Curry and staff of The Stittsville News.” The plaque also acknowledged that it is organizations like the Stittsville News EMC that help make the community a real home for families. In accepting the plaque on behalf of the Stittsville News EMC, editor John Curry praised the Food Bank for its work in the community, calling it essential.

This is where the Food Bank is able to help out. At the annual general meeting, longtime Board secretary Helen Gunther was presented with a gift of appreciation for her work on behalf of the Food Bank. Helen has stepped down as the Board secretary. She has been replaced by Cindy Beauchamp who joins the Board. Sandra Sparkes, who has been director for food drives, has also stepped down from the Board of Directors.

Others on the new Board of Directors for the Food Bank include Theresa Qadri as chair, Cheryl Browne as vice-chair, Wayne Beaten as treasurer, Ferzana Qadri as director of cli-

Just say no to grow-op registry
uyer beware. And buyers of really big items â€“ like a house â€“ should be very wary indeed. Members of the Ontario Real Estate Association are calling on the province to create a provincial database of all homes that have been used as marijuana grow-ops or drug labs. There is a risk that a former grow-op could contain moulds and that a chemical lab location could have dangerous residues. A local realtor suggests a provincial list of these homes could be consulted by would-be home buyers before signing for a new home. It sounds like a reasonable plan until the effectiveness and cost of a drug house registry is considered. Who will pay to create the database, and more importantly, who will pay to keep it updated? No one wants to download busy-work onto police officers in multiple jurisdictions â€“ municipal, OPP and RCMP â€“ when they could be solving crimes or preventing them. The real estate agentsâ€™ wish list would also be sadly incomplete. Police only know about homes where they find grow-ops or drug labs, leaving all the other illicit locations off any provincial registry. And it turns out there are pay-per-use websites that home seekers can check to learn the history of a
home. Given the size of a home purchase, the cost of adding in a history check doesnâ€™t seem onerous. Then thereâ€™s the issue of spending public funds to create a database that will benefit only one part of the population. If you can afford a house, youâ€™re fortunate. Buying a house is a private transaction, so the responsibility should fall on the parties involved to do their due diligence. If we as a society mandate that the province must keep tabs on homes others may not want to buy, how long will it be until we need a registry of homes where murders have occurred? How about a list of houses with Bad Mojo or a report of ghosts? Buyer beware is a fact of life. Plus we have laws to dissuade anyone from selling a damaged home without telling the buyer. If someone knowingly sells a house and does not inform the buyer of hidden damage â€“ from any source â€“ they could face charges of fraud. No one should have to live in a mouldy or damaged home, so people shopping for a house should do everything they can to make sure their purchase is healthy. If they hire a real estate agent, they should be confident that the agent has their best interests at heart and has done all possible research on their dream home.
Canada Post takes a flyer with junk mail plea
hances are you received a peculiar letter from Canada Post recently. It told you that you are part of a Canada Post database of people who had requested that no flyers be delivered. You might have forgotten that you ever did that. The letter then asked you to reconsider, by mailing in a postage-free card to Canada Postâ€™s â€œConsumersâ€™ Choice Programâ€? saying that you would like to receive unaddressed mail at your address. Notice how big organizations, when they are urging you to accept something unpleasant, always give it a name like â€œConsumerâ€™s Choiceâ€?? And speaking of unaddressed, this letter from Canada Post was addressed to â€œDear Occupant.â€? Noting that the mailing was printed on sustainable paper that can be recycled, Canada Post told you that by refusing to accept unaddressed mail â€“ which some cranky people insist on calling junk mail â€“ we were missing out on coupons, catalogues, fundraising appeals from charities, municipal and community notices and product samples. Unaddressed mail, Canada Post says â€œcan save you money and keep you connected with your local community.â€? What is this all about, really? Well, news
Funny Town reports say Canada Post lost money last year. As to the unaddressed mail, hereâ€™s a quote from a Canada Post spokesperson, seen in the National Post: â€œWe deliver all types of mail and all are important to the senders. And we owe it to those who pay for the service to receive the most effective service for their dollars.â€? In other words: companies pay us money to put those flyers in mailboxes and theyâ€™re leaning on us to get more mailboxes. Things have come to a pretty pass for a once-proud organization â€“ having to plead with customers to accept junk mail, masking its plea as an offer to help us keep connected with our local community. Of course, we all know why. Many Canadians, perhaps most, now receive their personal mail â€“ what we used to call â€œletPublished weekly by:

tersâ€? â€“ electronically. You may have the odd Luddite friend or eccentric uncle who still handwrites a letter, puts it in an envelope and puts a stamp on it, but thatâ€™s about it. The great majority of communications you receive are on your computer. That even goes for junk mail, which is not in short supply in the digital world either. So we can understand that Canada Post is hurting and why, but there must be a more creative and positive way to be part of the solution than simply agreeing to receive more mail that we will never read (and causes more trees to be cut down). Apparently the most obvious solution â€“ asking companies, political parties and other organizations to put their stuff in envelopes and buy stamps like the rest of us â€“ wouldnâ€™t fly with Canada Postâ€™s partners in unaddressed mail. But maybe something else would work. For example, we would be far more receptive to a Canada Post campaign urging us to sit down and handwrite an angry letter to a politician, or a postcard to a grandchild, or a letter to the editor about something silly going on in the world, such as Canada Post trying to get us to accept junk mail. Canada Post could even make a side dollar or two by offering courses in handwriting,

which some of us have forgotten how to do. Perhaps we could even learn to write on sustainable paper that can be recycled. If we were to write such letters, we would have to buy stamps, which would be good for Canada Post. People on the receiving end â€“ except maybe for the politicians â€“ would be happy to get something in their mailboxes that didnâ€™t contain coupons or photographs of John Baird. True, all of this would mean that we would be using more paper and contributing to the destruction of the worldâ€™s forests. But whatâ€™s more important, a bunch of trees or the future of Canada Post?

$12,000 raised at annual Book Fair, Raffle and BBQ EMC news - Funds were raised and fun was had. And NASCAR driver Dave Connellyâ€™s and his Fuel For Kids BBQ was a big part of both at the 21st annual Book Fair, Raffle and BBQ at A. Lorne Cassidy Elementary School in Stittsville on Friday, May 24 and Saturday, May 25. Dave Connellyâ€™s Fuel For Kids BBQ alone raised $2,100 of the total of $12,000 which was raised at the event this year. All funds raised will be used to support various programs and to purchase classroom technology to benefit students at the school. But it was the appearance of Dave Connelly himself and his Dodge No. 82 race car that provoked lots of excitement and fun among those in attendance, both young and old as they excitedly got autographs and photos of Dave and his NASCAR car and team. Dave Connelly is a Canadian Tire
Series race car driver who has been competing on the circuit since 2007. During the school day, Dave gave presentations to all of the students at the school. Imagine the excitement when he spun a donut in the schoolyard. But there was much more happening at this annual Book Fair, Raffle and BBQ event. City of Ottawa Stittsville ward councillor Shad Qadri was on hand serving up sno-cones and cotton candy at the treat station which sold out. Councillor Qadri is a long time supporter of the Book Fair, Raffle and BBQ at A. Lorne Cassidy and extends his congratulations to everyone involved for such a great job organizing this wonderful event. There were over 22,000 gentlyused books for sale at this yearâ€™s event so that there was a good chance that a book by a favourite author or on a desired subject could be found.
The annual Canada Day Seniors Breakfast hosted by city of Ottawa Stittsville ward councillor Shad Qadri will take place on Monday, July 1 from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. at the Sterling Howie Fire Hall on Stittsville
Those who purchased a raffle ticket had the opportunity to win one of 37 great prize packages. The success of this raffle is made possible by donations from the community and this year local businesses and individuals donated over $5,000 worth of prizes. Prizes this year included a priceless hockey stick signed by Erik Karlsson of the Ottawa Senators, an electric scooter, Beats headphones, a three month membership to Cooliganâ€™s and a $400 gift card for eyewear. This yearâ€™s raffle coordinators were Lisa Proulx and Debbie Liask. The organizers of this yearâ€™s 21st annual Book Fair, Raffle and BBQ at A.

This yearâ€™s book fair provided A.L.C.â€™s school library with over 350 new and used books and also provided teachers with new reading material for their classrooms. This yearâ€™s leftover books were donated to several different charitable organizations in Stittsville and the surrounding area. This annual Book Fair, Raffle and BBQ is organized and put on solely by volunteers. Book Fair co-chairs Kim Clausen and Laurie Newman would like to extend a huge thank you to their committee members as well as to all A.L.C. families, teachers, volunteers and community residents whose support made it all possible.

The three girls presented a bag containing these funds and the Canadian Tire money to Patty Summers, the ed-
ucation coordinator for the Wild Bird Care Centre, at a recent assembly at Guardian Angels Catholic School in Stittsville. The Wild Bird Care Centre is a registered charitable organization that operates its program under the authorization of Ontario’s Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment Canada’s Canadian Wildlife Service.

These Torchlight Shakespeare shows are open to everyone and are based on “passthe-hat” donations rather than any admission charge. This makes the show available to everyone. The Stittsville presentation of “The Merry Wives of Windsor” will take place on Saturday, July 13 at 7 p.m. at Alexander Grove Park which is where the “A Company of Fools” has performed in previously as well. Those attending are reminded to take along a lawn chair or blanket to sit on as well as bug spray. This year’s show, “The Merry Wives of Windsor,” promises to be a rollocking good time. It revolves around Falstaff, a rogue with a penchant for drink, women and mischief, arriving in the small town of Windsor. Underestimating the intellect of the middle class,
he attempts to woo two married ladies at the same time, not realizing for a second that they are onto him and his antics. The wives of Windsor use and abuse Falstaff for their own amusement, giving him lessons in matters of the heart. This comedy was ﬁrst published in 1602 but was probably written several years before. “A Company of Fools,” a professional Shakespeare company, was established in 1990 by a group of students in the University of Ottawa’s theatre department, with the troupe modeling itself after the rogue Elizabethan players who once entertained audiences out of doors as well as at London’s Globe Theatre. The annual Torchlight Shakespeare series, which has become the signature happening for “A Company of Fools,” began in 2003. The aim of “A Company of Fools” is to make Shakespeare theatre accessible and fun for audiences of all ages.

OSAID at Sacred Heart John Curry
EMC news - Students at Sacred Heart Catholic High School in Stittsville are more aware of the dangers of impaired and distracted driving thanks to the energetic efforts of the school’s OSAID (Ontario Students Against Impaired Driving) group during this school year. The group, which probably numbers about 20 students, has been meeting every second Wednesday to plan events to help make fellow students more aware of the risks involved with
impaired or distracted driving. One of the OSAID group’s most effective awareness events has been providing “drunk goggles” to students and then having them try to ride a bike through a series of pylons. The goggles were provided by MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving) and they worked – not one student managed to get through the course without hitting a pylon. Sacred Heart’s OSAID’s group also has held a bake sale to raise funds for MADD and its work in creating awareness about impaired driving.
Three Sacred Heart Catholic High School students who are members of the school’s OSAID (Ontario Students Against Impaired Driving) group this year are, from left, grade 12 student Melinda Mousseau; grade 12 student Alyssa Leeks; and grade 9 student Sarah Bruce.
The OSAID group has also presented a video showing the risks related to impaired driving to all of the students in the school. Even Sarah Bruce, a 14 year old grade nine student who joined the OSAID group this year, says that the OSAID message is a great one for students like herself to support, because even youngster students who do not yet drive frequently have older siblings who do drive. Members of the OSAID group made their
own t-shirts promoting OSAID. And presentations about the dangers of impaired driving do work. Alyssa Leeks, a 17 year old grade 12 student who joined the OSAID group this year, said that she decided to become involved with OSAID because of the presentation that she saw last year. OSAID is not Alyssa’s only extra-curricular activity at the school. She is also a peer mentor, helping a grade eight student this year.

The facility was opened to the public as part of Doors Open Ottawa. Brought to the community by the City of Ottawa, it is the city’s largest heritage and architectural event, giving visitors a rare opportunity to visit inside some of Ottawa’s most prestigious buildings and facilities. “Chaudière Falls is in the heart of Canada’s National Capital and has great historical signiﬁcance,” said Bryce Conrad, President and CEO of Hydro Ottawa. “It fueled the industrial explosion of the mid 1800s by providing the water power for the vast complex of lumber mills that generated electricity that drove railroads and factories in the area after 1885.”
Hydro Ottawa owns and operates three generating stations at Chaudière Falls. Generating Station No. 2 was originally built in 1891 by industrialist E.H. Bronson. The Bronson family was a leader in lumber-related industry in the Ottawa Valley. In 2001, the station was completely rebuilt. All of the generators were rewound, the turbines were replaced, the channels and dam structures rehabilitated and the station completely automated. However, all of the heritage elements of the station were preserved and the equipment looks as it did 100 years ago.

“It’s a unique opportunity to share the history of this site with the community,” said Conrad. “Not only did visitors get to tour this historic building, but they also learned how renewable hydroelectricity is produced.”
