News - A blend of country rock, pop and ballads will drift over the Richmond fairgrounds in Richmond on Thursday, Aug. 1 thanks to the group Blackwell. Blackwell is a country music trio comprised of Carey Blackwell, his brother Danny Blackwell and singer/songwriter Braiden Turner. The group will be performing in a free 7 p.m. concert at the Richmond fairgrounds sponsored by Waste Management in cooperation with Rural West Recreation of the city of Ottawa. Carey Blackwell is considered one of the premier guitarists to emerge on the music scene in quite a while. Danny Blackwell’s voice is awesome, both powerful and compelling. Braiden Turner’s talents as a singer/songwriter and as a pianist round out the Blackwell sound. Carey and Danny Blackwell were raised in a musical family from Cochrane, Ontario. This set them up for their career making music, writing songs, recording and playing live. Braiden Turner also comes from a musical family and spends a lot of time writing and recording songs in her home studio. As musicians and singers, the Blackwell trio is unique, with fresh and original material inspiring audiences of all ages – a blend of country rock along with pop and haunting ballads. Blackwell is busy. This Aug. 1st performance in Richmond follows recent performances in Navan and Renfrew. The trio will be performing at the upcoming Cobden Fair and then at the Kinmount Fair before appearing at the Richmond Fair on Saturday, Sept. 21. This Aug. 1st performance by Blackwell begins a series of four free consecutive Thursday evening concerts, all sponsored by Waste Management in cooperation with Rural West Recreation of the city of Ottawa. See BLACKWELL, page 3


Jumping at Westar Farms Why let horses and riders have all the fun? Jumps can also be for people as Westar Farms owner Jeff McKessock, right, and his son Lucas McKessock, left, show as they jump in tandem over one of the jumps that they were setting up for the annual “Horse Lovers Weekend” at the Fernbank Road equestrian facility west of Stittsville last Sunday. The two-day silver and bronze level horse shows were reduced to a one-day event due to the storm last Friday which drenched the show rings, making them unusable on the Saturday.

24 hours of hockey to help Make-A-Wish John Curry


Organizers of the 24 hour Hockey4Wishes fundraiser at the Bell Sensplex which began last Saturday at 9 a.m. and ran through to Sunday at 9 a.m. are Joel Barrette, left, and Carlos Zaidi, right, two Stittsville dads. Proceeds from the fundraiser, which this year totaled over $23,000, go to the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Eastern Ontario. Three meals are provided during the 24 hour event which is capped off with a gala brunch after the hockey ends at 9 a.m. on the Sunday. For last year’s inaugural event and for this year’s event as well, there were only enough players registered to ice two teams. But this year there were about ten more players altogether than last year and there were also some players who took part in just a few of the games, making a donation for the privilege of playing on this drop-in basis. The games in the wee-hours of the morning seemed to have an attraction for some of these drop-in players. The hockey action is noncontact and non-competitive, involving adult recreational players of both sexes. Its pickup hockey in its most pure form as game scores are not recorded. About the only stat that is kept is the total number of goals scored. Last year’s inaugural event saw 144 goals scored. This Hockey4Wishes fund-


raiser is a reality because of two Stittsville hockey playing dads, Joel Barrette and Carlos Zaidi, who have combined their love of hockey with a desire to help Make-A-Wish Eastern Ontario fulfill the wishes of children suffering from severe medical conditions. That they both have healthy children has only made them more passionate about helping parents who are not as fortunate as they are. Joel and Carlos attended an adult hockey skills camp together which is how they rekindled their interest in playing hockey. Joel serves as an assistant coach with his daughter’s hockey team and also plays in a league at the Sensplex while Carlos plays pickup hockey. The idea of holding a fundraising hockey event came from the two of them sitting together in a dressing room and talking about such a fundraiser. It was Joel who came up with the concept of organizing it like a hockey marathon, as it were, with games being played






††† ††


los’ wife Nancy Lalonde-Zaidi was one of the proponents and organizers for the Dance4Wishes fundraiser which the Pointe of Grace Dance Company of Stittsville held for the first time earlier this year, with the proceeds donated to MakeA-Wish Eastern Ontario. Carlos and Nancy have a daughter who is an enthusiastic dancer with Pointe of Grace. Players sign up for the Hockey4Wishes event, paying a registration fee. This goes to help cover the costs associated with the event such as the ice rental, the meals that are provided and the personalized hockey jerseys. Players can be either male or female with varying skill levels and ages ranging from the 20’s to the late 50’s. There are also those who donate to the event or undertake their own fundraising efforts to raise money for the event. In addition, Hockey4Wishes has corporate sponsors including three major sponsors: VLN Advanced Technologies Inc., JenCor Entertainment




over a 24 hour period. Joel had been involved in other 24 hour events such as relays and rallies so the idea of playing hockey for 24 hours straight had what he calls “a nice ring� to him. And it would be an event that would raise money for a charity. It was Carlos who came up with the idea of using this hockey marathon to raise funds for Make-A-Wish Eastern Ontario. He had been aware of Make-A-Wish not only through involvement over a number of years through his workplace but also he knew of the work of Make-A-Wish because a friend of his daughter was a recipient of a wish from Make-A-Wish. This brought the work of Make-A-Wish close to home for him and so he suggested that Make-AWish be the recipient of funds raised by this hockey marathon event. The Zaidi family, in fact, is a strong supporter of Make-AWish, not only as evidenced by this Hockey4Wishes event but also by the fact that Car-

2 Stittsville News EMC - Thursday, July 25, 2013


News - Playing hockey. Lots of fun. Playing 12 games in a 24 hour period. Awesome. Raising funds for an organization that brings joy to children suffering from life threatening medical conditions. Priceless. But this is what happened at the Bell Sensplex from last Saturday at 9 a.m. to Sunday at 9 a.m. as the second annual Hockey4Wishes Fundraiser took place, the brainchild of a pair of Stittsville dads, Joel Barrette and Carlos Zaidi. And as the Sensplex’s digital sign along Maple Grove Road flashed “Welcome to the Hockey4Wishes Fundraiser� with its big red rotating letters, inside the complex members of two teams wearing their personalized hockey jerseys, either blue or white, played 12 games over the 24 hour period. Yes, it was a hockey marathon but, as the event’s publicity poster claimed, “one amazing cause� – Make-AWish Foundation of Eastern Ontario. This organization grants the wishes of children suffering from life threatening medical conditions. Proceeds raised by this Hockey4Wishes fundraiser go towards granting the wishes for children in the Ottawa region. Last year’s inaugural Hockey4Wishes fundraiser raised $25,000 for Make-A-Wish Eastern Ontario, allowing for the granting of three wishes. This year’s fundraising goal was a similar $25,000 (over $23,000 was actually raised) but by 2016, as the word spreads more and more about this unique hockey marathon fundraiser, organizers Joel Barrette and Carlos Zaidi hope that the event will have grown enough to fund the granting of up to ten wishes each year. The concept involves participation of four teams, each with 15 skaters and two goalies, with each team playing 12 one-hour games over the 24 hour period.

Inc. and Cistel Technologies Inc. All three are communitybased firms that have come on board for this event. While the initial plans were for a four team, 68 player event, both last year and this year saw only two teams involved. But there were more players this year than last year and Joel and Carlos are confident that as word about the event spreads, more players will come forward and the four team format will be realized. Indeed, Carlos notes that growing the event incrementally as has happened over its first two years is letting the event develop and grow slowly but positively. Carlos notes that most of the players involved have families and realize how blessed they are to have healthy children. That’s why supporting MakeA-Wish Eastern Ontario is important to all of them because Make-A-Wish through the granting of wishes is helping children and some of these children can be neighbours, right in the community. Carlos knows this from his first-hand experience with his daughter’s friend which is why he views helping Make-A-Wish as “more grassroots, community based giving back� than might be the case with other charities. And Joel Barrette reflects what is undoubtedly a common feeling when he points out that staying up all one night to play hockey may result in him being a little tired and sore the next day but when he compares this to what a family endures when a son or daughter is battling a life threatening disease, his tiredness and soreness is really nothing at all. He says that Make-A-Wish gives hope and joy to the children and families that it helps, giving them something to look forward to and giving them a little break from their lives that are normally filled with stress and worries about their sick child.

Hockey4Wishes event And so while three of the four ice surfaces at the Bell Sensplex were closed down and in darkness last Saturday night, action continued on the remaining ice surface as this Hockey4Wishes hockey marathon continued. And even while sitting on their benches, the players were never far from vivid reminders of the work done by Make-A-Wish. On the glass behind the benches there were posters outlining some of the wishes that have been granted such as Evan’s wish to visit Orlando, Florida. The six year old suffers from a rare syndrome and thanks to Make-A-Wish he and his family enjoyed a week there. Make-A-Wish Eastern Ontario grants wishes for children between the ages of 3 and 17 with life threatening medical conditions.

NEWS Movies on Tuesdays at Village Square Park It turns out that the speck of dust is home to the Whos who live in the city of Who-ville. Horton tries to protect the Whos and their home but he gets opposition from his neighbours who do not believe that anything could survive on a speck of dust. But Horton persists, firm in his stated belief that “After all, a person is a person, no matter how small.� In the film, you get to meet such characters as Who-ville mayor Ned McDodd, his wife Sally, his 96 daughters whose names all begin with the letter H, his teenage son JoJo, Dr. LaRue, the Sour Kangaroo, the Wickersham Brothers who are a group of bullying monkeys, a vulture named Vlad Vladikoff and a young kangaroo, Rudy. “Horton Hears a Who!� is considered both whimsical and heartwarming as a movie and the movie story reflects the spirit of the original Dr. Seuss book. It was a box office success, grossing about $300 million. Its production cost was $85 million. If you cannot make it to this screening of “Horton Hears a Who!� at Village Square Park on Tuesday, July 30, you should consider attending one or all of the movies coming up on Tuesday evenings in August.

Music of quartet fills Gaia Java shop John Curry

News - Music from the youthful jazz quartet The Smithtet so filled the Gaia Java Coffee Company shop in Stittsville last Friday evening that it almost felt as if the musicians playing trumpets and other instruments depicted in the colourful artwork which lines one wall of the shop must have been joining in with the perfor-

mance. Of course, this wasn’t the case as it was simply the lively interpretation of jazz classics by the four musicians of The Smithtet that made the music resonate throughout the space, much to the delight and listening pleasure of the capacity crowd. The Smithtet featured Patrick Smith on saxophone, Zach Smith on trombone, Ben Heard on bass and Clayton Connell on keyboard. To-

gether, they performed a selection of jazz standards and even an original composition by Zach Smith called “Constellation,� which began slowly with Ben Heard using his bow on the strings of his string bass. The Smithtet is an example of the youthful talent that is appearing on the music scene these days. Patrick Smith (saxophone) and Zach Smith (trombone) are both off to the University of Toronto this fall to study jazz performance. Ben Heard (bass) is still pursuing his music studies at Canterbury High School in Ottawa as well as performing around the city. Pianist Clayton Connell, who is from Toronto, is currently working on a music degree at Carleton University. The group recently played at the Ottawa Jazz Festival. The Gaia Java Coffee Company shop at the Stittsville Shopping Centre (Shoppers Drug Mart plaza) on Stittsville Main Street hosts music evenings every Friday starting at 7 p.m. The Crumble Quartet, a string quartet that plays classical and tango music, will be performing at the music evening this Friday, July 26. Those planning to attend should try to be there early for the best seating. This will be the last Friday music evening at the Gaia Java shop until September.

‘Exceptional Women’ exhibit coming to library Wales in 1860 when he saw her female name amid a list of veterans of the War of 1812. This led to a gift of 100 pounds from the Prince. Further recognition, though, had to wait until the early 1900’s when women took up her cause and her story was commemorated. Mr. Johnson then pursued the stories of three more women associated with the War of 1812 – Lydia Burke, wife of Captain George Burke who became superintendent of the Richmond Military Settlement in 1818 and was cited for bravery in the War of 1812; Catherine Lyon, wife of Lieutenant George Lyon of the 100th Regiment of Foot who was wounded in the Battle of Chippawa; and Lady Jane Vaughan, wife of soldier William Vaughan of the 100th Regiment. Tedious and at times frustrating research over several months eventually yielded the stories of these women and their War of 1812 connections. Much of the resulting storyline is thanks to descendants of these women who were able to provide much information and leads related to their lives. The story of Lady Jane Vaughan came together from various sources,

Kurt Johnson such as descendant Marion Scott of Richmond and an historical novel written by Carol Bennett along with her book “Valley Irish” in which she outlines much of the Vaughan family history. It was with this that Kurt Johnson realized that he had assembled “all pieces of the quilt” and the story that could be told in the Goulbourn Museum’s “Exceptional Women and the War of 1812” exhibit was possible. “It was a long hunt,” Mr. Johnson says about his almost nine months of searching but in the end the story of these women and their connection to

the War of 1812 could be told. This telling will continue this August at the Stittsville library branch when the different panels of the exhibit outlining the story of these six “exceptional women” will be on display. The exhibit will also outline the causes of the War of 1812, the relative populations and military strength of each side in the conflict and the estimated death toll for each side in the war, including not only British and Canadian soldiers and American militia and soldiers but also aboriginal men, women and children. Those visiting the exhibit will also be able to obtain, while quantities last, a free copy of the booklet “Goulbourn’s Top 12 of 1812,” recently published by the Goulbourn Museum with financial assistance from the federal government’s 1812 Commemoration Fund. This booklet outlines the stories of 12 War of 1812 veterans who have a connection to Richmond and Goulbourn. Included in these 12 is none other than the “exceptional” Maria Hill. This “Exceptional Women and the War of 1812” exhibit of the Goulbourn Museum will be on display at the Stittsville library branch throughout the month of August.

The annual Richmond Fair will take place from Thursday, Sept. 19 to Sunday, Sept. 22.

News - War is a man’s game or at least that is the impression that you get from most historical wartime accounts. And this includes the War of 1812 when General Isaac Brock and aboriginal leader Tecumseh are the leading personalities associated with the war, although the War of 1812 has that anomaly – Laura Secord and her famous trek to warn the British about American plans. But there are more great stories involving women associated with the War of 1812 than just that of Laura Secord and the Goulbourn Museum’s exhibit “Exceptional Women and the War of 1812” tells the story of six of these women. Granted, one of them is Laura Secord but the exhibit deals with her in a unique way, not dealing so much with her daring actions at the battle of Queenston Heights and her legendary walk but with her later life and the lack of public acclaim for her actions. The exhibit also connects Laura Secord with Maria Hill, the wife of a soldier of the 100th Regiment of Foot. Maria and her husband Andrew were among Richmond’s earliest settlers, establishing a tavern in the new settlement. The Goulbourn Museum, thanks to tenacious and meticulous research done by Kurt Johnson, who is now a member of the Board of Directors of the Museum, developed this “Exceptional Women and the War of 1812” exhibit which was on display at the Museum in 2012 and now will be on display for the month of August at the Stittsville branch of the Ottawa Public Library. The story of these six women, all with a connection to the War of 1812, were slowly assembled through Mr. Johnson’s research over several months, pulling together details from a variety of sources, often breaking new ground as he found gems hidden in archival letters or learned from present-day relatives who had illuminating source materials and knowledge. “It’s like a quilt,” says Mr. Johnson of the process which led to the collection of the stories about these six women, these “exceptional” women of the exhibit. “Every one of these (women) is a patch.” It all began in the fall of 2011 after Mr. Johnson had finished work on his previous historical project, researching and telling the story of the shipwrecks that beset the 100th Regiment of Foot soldiers as they travelled to Canada in the early 1800’s. It became a question of what could be done for the Museum’s commemoration of the War of 1812 which was to be a focus for 2012, the 200th anniversary year of the beginning of that war. It all began, not so much with Laura Secord but with Agathe Nowlan, the wife of Lieutenant Maurice Nowlan of the 100th Regiment of Foot who died in the storming of Fort Niagara. Research done by Dianne Graves, an acknowledged researcher and expert about the role of women in the War of 1812, had uncovered a letter that Lt. Maurice Nowlan had

written to his wife who was back in Montreal, like many wives not having followed the troops on their postings, even though she wanted to join him there. Kurt received the OK from Dianne Graves to use her research findings about Agathe Nowlan and Lieut. Nowlan and so one “exceptional woman” was identified. But this was still a long way from enough to make a meaningful exhibit, still a long way from having enough “patches” for this “quilt” of exceptional women. There was, of course, Maria Hill whose exploits dressing up as a soldier and following her husband on his postings and serving as a nurse for the 100th Regiment of Foot were well known. But it was Mr. Johnson’s discovery of historical references in a couple of sources that led to a new fact about Maria Hill, namely that she had met and helped Laura Secord on the battlefield at the Battle of Queenston Heights, even hiding her young baby in a wood pile to enable her to do this. “I struck gold,” is how Mr. Johnson describes this research which links Maria Hill with Laura Secord. Now the “exceptional women” quilt was starting to take shape. Of course, now Laura Secord could be incorporated into the quilt with her connection to Maria Hill and the 100th Regiment of Foot. But the “exceptional women” exhibit takes a different approach to her. Sure, it refers to her battlefield exploits at Queenston Heights and her legendary walk but it tells about the little known part of her life where she lived in virtual obscurity after the War of 1812 despite her wartime heroics. She was virtually forgotten and even though she petitioned for various government patronage jobs like taking care of the Brock monument at Queenston Heights, she was ignored until her wartime exploits came to the attention of the Prince of

That the City of Ottawa request that the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation’s Request for Proposals process for the remaining Ottawa area be undertaken only after the Province of Ontario has communicated a decision with respect to Ottawa’s request for a separate gaming zone for the Rideau Carleton Raceway; and c. That, should the Province of Ontario and the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation deny City Council’s request for a separate gaming zone for the Rideau Carleton Raceway, City Council communicate its support for the retention of the existing slots facility at the Rideau Carleton Raceway, with the current allocation of 1250 slots and the approved expansion for 21 gaming tables City Council voted unanimously to refer the motion to a Special Meeting of the Finance and Economic Development Committee (FEDCO) on the City of Ottawa Participation in the OLG RFP Process to be held on August 26th, 2013, for consideration and recommendation to Council at its meeting of August 28th, 2013. I myself am a major supporter of the motion that was put forth. As a former businessman I believe in an open-process and that is what I championed during the committee meeting last week.

Raising awareness of kidney disease John Curry

News - There was someone who has received a kidney transplant, returning her to good health. There was someone who is now going through the process that will determine if she can donate a kidney, helping another return to good health. And there was someone who told about the work of the Kidney Foundation not only in enabling research but also in raising awareness of the growing need for kidney donations. All three were on hand at the last executive meeting of the Stittsville Village Association (SVA) to tell their stories in light of the upcoming Kidney Walk in Stittsville that is happening on Sunday, Sept. 8. Elizabeth Hochster-Hurst of Stittsville has beneďŹ tted from a kidney transplant after she went from a healthy, active lifestyle to one of constant fatigue and the prospect of an early death due to kidney disease. Her kidney transplant 18 months ago has restored her to normal, active living. Helene Rivest of Stittsville decided earlier this year to be a kidney donor as a way of helping fellow Stittsville resident Craig Dunbar who is in need of a kidney transplant as his time on dialysis is becoming more problematic. And while Helene is not a match for Craig, eliminating a direct donation, she is aiming to be involved in the Living Donor Paired Exchange program that tries to link up incompatible pairs that results in two or more recipients receiving kidneys via a domino-type

Elizabeth Hochster-Hurst transplant chain. And then there is Bruce Hill who manages the Kidney Foundation’s Ottawa ofďŹ ce and can explain the “bigger pictureâ€? about how many are affected by kidney disease, about the facts about kidney donations and about the hopes for a successful Kidney Walk in Stittsville on Sept. 8. Elizabeth Hochster-Hurst told those at the SVA meeting her story, going from a busy, active life to one combating the daily struggles involved with

kidney malfunction to now back to a normal lifestyle thanks to the generous donation of a kidney by the husband of one of her longtime girl friends. But this is what can happen when the gift of life is given through a kidney donation. Elizabeth was working, had two children, a loving husband and even six horses on their rural property when her kidney problem arose, with her kidney function deteriorating to the 30 percent level. “The fatigue is unbeliev-

able,â€? she said, noting that it gets worse and worse, with secondary impacts being incredible nausea and vomiting. Diet becomes a major preoccupation, as a low protein, low sodium, low nutrients diet is required or else the uids in the blood get totally out of balance. This means that there are no bananas or chocolate or almonds. Milk products are gone. Eating habits are completely changed. Add to this that she was tired all the time and sick all the time and you can see that her quality of life had changed dramatically from the years when she was active and healthy and was a longtime equestrian coach at Fiddler’s Green Stables of Stittsville. And going on dialysis was not the long term answer because the life span for someone on kidney dialysis in her situation is usually about ďŹ ve years, she said. This meant that she was looking at premature death in her mid-forties, leaving her family without a wife and mother. But fortunately for Elizabeth, this did not come to pass thanks to her receipt of the gift of life, a transplanted kidney. The immediate impact of the transplant was that she could think and talk and, yes, eat again. She said that when the kidneys start to fail, a person gets so that he or she cannot think – it is like you are in a fog. But right after her transplant surgery, that fog lifted, as it were, and she could clearly think and talk again. And, yes, eat again. See DONORS, page 7

Transplant donors needed; Kidney Walk coming “Everything was back on the table,” she told those at the SVA meeting. Elizabeth said that what sustained her through her worst times with her kidney disease was her family, her friends, her faith and also the peer support program provided by the Kidney Foundation. This is a program in which those suffering from kidney disease can talk to others who have been there but who have survived thanks to a transplant. She said that this peer support program allowed her to see light at the end of the tunnel through knowing about the experience of others in similar circumstances. She noted that there are now about 1,500 people on Ontario’s transplant list, with about 72 percent of those needing a transplant waiting for a kidney donation. She explained that with diabetes on the rise in society today, there are going to be more kidney failures because there is a link there. This means that there is going to be an increasing role for the Kidney Foundation but this in turn means that the Kidney Foundation will need more support from the community. Hence the need for initiatives like Stittsville’s Kidney Walk which was launched last September and will happen again this September. The Walk is not only to raise funds but also to increase awareness about kidney disease. Elizabeth said that with more donors, more transplants will be possible, thus helping the many like Craig Dunbar of Stittsville who are now living thanks to dialysis, a treatment

Craig Dunbar that brings with it problems such as infections. Helene Rivest told those at the SVA meeting that she decided to become a kidney donor specifically to help Craig Dunbar. When a blood test determined that she was not a compatible donor for Craig, she was made aware of the Living Donor Paired Exchange program and becoming part of that program is what she is now pursuing. This pursuit involves a multi-phased process which is meant to thoroughly weed out any potential donors who cannot meet the rigid requirements that are required for kidney donation. Helene, for instance, battled cancer 32 years ago, a fact which arose when her medical history was studied. But this was determined to be a non-factor in her case and she continues to work her way through the process. She is being completely informed about kidney donations, about the recuperation involved after a donation and other aspects of the donor process. This includes a test

Kidney Walk Special to the News

News - This year’s second annual Kidney Walk in Stittsville with a $15,000 fundraising goal will start on Sunday, Sept. 8 at 11 a.m. at Stittsville United Church on Fernbank Road and then proceed along Stittsville Main Street to Papa Sam’s at Beverly Street which will be the turning around point. Then it’s back to the church. At the church, there will be Funday Sun-

to ensure that her kidneys are fully functioning with no problems. The surgery itself, which could happen anywhere in Canada depending on where a matching donor might live, may result in a small scar but Helene views this as a small price to pay to give the gift of life to someone. The surgery will result in a hospital stay ranging from two to five days, with a four to eight week recovery period afterwards. Besides the physical recovery, there is also an emotional recovery involved as donation means that a person loses a part of their body. This is why there is an annual follow-up with each organ donor. But to Helene, she has a positive outlook. “I can live a perfectly normal life with one kidney,” she states. Bruce Hill of the Kidney Foundation told those at the SVA meeting that one in ten people is affected by kidney disease. This compares to one in three people being affected by cancer. He said that the Kidney Foundation is trying to raise as many funds as possible so that someday research might discover a cure to kidney disease or come up with better treatment options. He explained that with dialysis, a kidney patient has his or her blood cleaned three times a week, taking four hours each time. This must continue for the rest of a life or until a transplant can happen. Organ donors must sign up at the website www.beadonor. ca. This is the only way that a person can be a registered donor – signing a driver’s li-

day activities including a BBQ sponsored by Stittsville Sobeys, two hours of entertainment by local jazz band Fonograph and children’s activities like an inflatable obstacle course and a bouncy castle.

cense or card is no longer the accepted way of registering to be a donor. Mr. Hill said that a kidney donation from a live person is the best since such kidneys usually have a 20 to 25 year lifespan. Kidneys donated by a person who has died have a reduced lifespan of 15 to 20 years. He confirmed that while everyone has two kidneys, only one kidney is needed for a person to survive and live a healthy, normal life. The Kidney Walk in Stittsville is being held on Sunday, Sept. 8, starting at 11 a.m. at the Stittsville United Church and proceeding along Stittsville Main Street to Beverly Street (at Papa Sam’s) where walkers will turn around and head back to the church.

Now you see it, soon you won’t


nce again, city council has come up with a politically-savvy solution to the question of where to build a casino: build two of them. Last week, council members were slapping each other’s backs and tweeting merrily after they agreed to ask the Ontario Lottery Gaming Corporation for permission to build two gaming facilities in Ottawa. Never mind that the OLG has already denied such a request before. The provincial gaming authority has said numerous times that Ottawa’s “zone� can only accommodate one casino. Council’s vote is little more than an attempt to assuage the complaints from Ottawa Senators owner Eugene Melnyk, who is hoping to bring a gaming facility to Canadian Tire Centre in Kanata. If the OLG turns down Ottawa’s request for two casinos, the city will move ahead with its default location: the racetrack. This marvelous sleight of hand highlights the fact the casino’s location is a purely political decision made before any studies, consultation or rational debate has taken place. Earlier this month, the city’s finance committee approved sole sourcing the casino, located at the Rideau-Carleton Raceway, a motion proposed and pushed by Mayor Jim Watson. Never mind that the

mayor was flip-flopping on his previous promise to make the selection process an open competition. This was a decision based on political pressure. Lobby groups and supporters of the racetrack made their preference known, likely highlighting the 2014 municipal election date on Watson’s calendar. Melnyk wasn’t exactly thrilled with the mayor’s motion. Lawyer in tow, he showed up at the finance committee meeting and blasted council for not providing a level playing field for bids, suggesting the process wasn’t exactly legal. An independent legal review indicated it is legal. It certainly isn’t how council has conducted business in the past. Usually, the city allows an open bidding process and holds public consultations to figure out if residents want a proposed building/business in the first place. But why destroy a perfectly sound political decision with the principles of good decision making and democratic tradition? The mayor has dealt himself a winning hand, getting council to approve a plan that pleases everyone, yet has small chance of approval. We can only admire the shuffling ability of the mayor, who, like an experienced card shark has deftly maneuvered council to approve his motion. Two casinos? Now you see it, soon you won’t.


A place where you don’t have to be an expert


ere’s a scene from a cottage weekend. See if it seems familiar to you. Six guys, probably late teens, are on one of those pontoon boats. A pontoon boat is notoriously hard to manouevre, especially in a wind, and these guys are fishing off it. They’re trying to get through a narrow opening between two islands. The opening is shallow and the bottom is covered with large boulders. The boat is trying to find its way through. To make matters more interesting, at least one of the anglers has caught bottom. So they’re trying to avoid the boulders, get through the opening and also get the guy’s lure off the bottom. One of the guys stands in the bow, watching for rocks. “Stop!� he yells. “Reverse! Reverse!� The boat reverses, clumsily. Somehow the snagged hook is freed and the pontoon boat backs out of the narrow passage and safely into open water. Somehow the proverb: “God helps drunks and little children,� springs to mind, except that these guys weren’t little and they didn’t seem to be drunks either. Someone called out to them from the shore

They were having the time of their lives and it served as a reminder of one of the great things about life at the lake in a Canadian summer: You don’t have to be good at it to enjoy it. It’s obvious when you think about it. Watch men manhandling chunks of meat around a barbecue. Watch anyone manhandling a golf ball around a cottage country golf course.

is a large amount of enjoyment. What a relief it is, after the exacting demands of the city, to get to a place where it really doesn’t matter how much skill you have. Sure, it’s nice to be good at something. But it’s also nice when it doesn’t matter all that much. Beside a lake, there are no bosses, no alarm clocks, no buses to run after. Mastery of software does not enter into your existence. There are no updates to anything. There is no such thing as a cc, never mind a blind cc. There is no traffic – once you get there. There is very little in the way of selfimprovement. It’s true that at some lakes, children are offered lessons in this or that, but they don’t last long and the kids might learn something they might be able to teach you. Not that it matters if you learn it all that well. The demands of cottage life are quite rudimentary. You have to be able to tolerate the noise children make. You have to be patient and learn to read a story out loud several times in a row. You have to be the kind of person dogs like. Knowing a few simple card games comes in handy. There are some basic safety things you have to learn, but they are

mostly common sense. Even driving a boat, while not all that easy, can be accomplished by a non-expert, because the margin of error on a lake is wider than on a city street. Along the way, you find and settle into the activities at which you can be an expert, that you might have forgotten over the year – taking a nap, telling jokes, eating gooey desserts, singing off-key, walking through the woods, exaggerating, unloading a boat, using a fly-swatter and figuring out whodunit. Easy. The rest of it is eating and sleeping, getting along with people and knowing when to wear a hat.

Walk for Water with a twist at ALC school Katie Dunn

Special to the News

News – A. Lorne Cassidy Elementary School’s third annual Walk for Water took on a realistic twist. Held on Tuesday, June 17, this event is an awareness raising activity regarding clean water in Third World countries for grade six to eight students at the Stittsville school. But this year, three grade eight students – Sydney Whitmore, Elisabeth Durst and Katie Dunn – approached their grade eight art teacher Ms. Katalin Trevorrow with their idea to make the Walk for Water event more realistic. The idea was embraced and soon Ms. Gaye AnsellGosselin, Angel Nowlan, Stephanie Thompson, Juan Hoyos, Huge Bohorquez, Charlotte Blaiklock, Elisabeth Robertson and Oliver Covell began working on the idea to make it a reality. The idea behind the Walk for Water is to simulate the journey that a child might have to make every day to get water for the family. Students and parent volunteers running different stations hand out handicaps that might apply to such a child. A small ball taped to a hand could simulate a broken wrist. Hopping on one foot would mean that the child either had lost or had been born without a leg. A student might even have an arm taped behind the back to simulate a broken arm. Each team in the Walk for Water was given a “water passport� with a country in need of water as the team name, along with three facts about the country. This was

the create a deeper understanding of the country. The idea was to create a relay style Walk for Water with four stations. One student would carry a bucket containing two or three bricks to the second station. At the second station, the passport would be stamped before the next person took over and carried the bucket to the third station. The passport stamping would be repeated before another student would take the bucket to the fourth station. While the students were waiting at each station, they would be given a handicap. The use of bricks was to simulate the weight of the water without having to waste water holding an event meant to raise awareness about water. The teams of students tried to go around the fourstation loop as many times as possible in a 50 minute period. In addition to this Walk for Water awareness event, A. Lorne Cassidy Elementary School also has become involved in the Royal Bank’s Blue Water Project. Through this program, a donation of $25 can provide clean water to someone in a developing country for life. According to a study done by the World Health Organization, water-related diseases cause one tenth of all sickness, most of which happens in developing countries. Thanks to the awareness-raising Walk for Water event and the school’s penny drive, A. Lorne Cassidy Elementary School raised more than $150 to provide clean water for those in need in developing countries.

It’s harvest time at Ashton Station Garlic John Curry

News - Garlic is king in Dave Cornell’s garden in Ashton. Sure, he has other crops such as tomatoes,

green beans and rhubarb in his extensive garden but garlic is his primary focus as he grows 6,000 plants covering about 20 varieties, which is down from the 40 varieties that he used to grow. And while he has been an avid vegetable

Back to school means back to saving. INTERNET GENIUS

gardener for 35 years, it was only about 15 years ago that he started growing garlic and that was just as a lark to see if he could grow it, having no experience whatsoever with the crop. He had been hunting moose with some buddies when the topic turned to growing garlic and he took up the challenge of seeing if he could grow it. “It started out as a hobby and turned into an obsession,” is how Dave describes what is now a decade and a half growing garlic. He goes under the name “Ashton Station Garlic” with farm gate sales at his 1967 Ashton Station Road home (right at the intersection of Ashton Station Road and Ormrod Road, the curvy bypass road for Ashton village) as well as sales at the annual Carp Garlic Festival. In addition, he supplies his daughter Donna Chute of Stittsville with the garlic which she uses for the garlic jellies which she markets, also under the Ashton Station name. She uses her own unique recipes, producing such jellies as Balsanic fig jelly and cranberry onion and roasted garlic jelly. So, how does a hobby become an obsession? Well, you start growing more and more varieties, which in Dave’s case grew to be 40 varieties, something which he has now cut back to 20 varieties. But it is not just growing these varieties in long rows (ten rows, 80 feet long), all separated and identified, that takes Dave’s attention. He also keeps exhaustive records of the yield that he gets from each variety. If a certain variety is not germinating at a 90 percent or so rate or is not producing at a suitable size or rate, as indicated by these records, then that variety is abandoned and a replacement found. He plants his different varieties in blocks, some of which are short plants and some of which are taller plants. Being in blocks also

helps with the harvesting since the different varieties tend to mature at slightly different times. Some of the varieties are mild and some are stronger; some produce many cloves while others have fewer but larger cloves. “I specialize in the hotter varieties of garlic,” Dave says, saying that this is where the market is these days. He is always on the lookout for varieties that have, as he says, “a good heat.” This is what sells best in his experience. Garlic is planted in the fall, usually in early October. Like a tulip, the plants develop their roots in the fall and then are the first plants up in the spring, sometimes even before the snow is gone. The harvest starts at the beginning of July and for Dave, it takes the whole month of July to harvest all of his garlic. This is where the differing maturity times helps. “Everything is done by hand,” he explains, noting that for him it is a “labour of love.” Growing garlic on the scale that Dave does is virtually a full time job in the growing season because of the weeding and fertilizing involved. Dave is a passionate organic gardener and while not a certified organic grower because of the presence of non-organic farmland across the road, he does everything organically. He has four compost bins which provide compost for his garlic garden. He also uses sheep manure and bone meal for fertilizer and uses grass clippings as mulch. He uses no pesticides or herbicides. His customers keep coming back, he says, because quality sells and also because they want organically grown garlic. He says that his garlic, freshly harvested, has a much different taste than the garlic that is sold in stores. See GARLIC, page 11

Hydro Ottawa helps rebuild Pullen Avenue Group Home

On July 16th, a group of Hydro Ottawa powerline maintainers and cable jointers generously lent their time and talents to connect the electrical service to the rebuilt Pullen Avenue Group Home, a 10-unit home for people with disabilities. Hydro Ottawa donated the use of their equipment, which included multiple vehicles, while its employees promptly answered the call to volunteer their time for this great cause. JOHN CURRY/METROLAND

Surrounded by garlic as they harvest this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s garlic group of Dave Cornellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ashton Station Garlic are, from left, Dave Cornell, seated, who is grading the size of a clove, Jeffrey Bendall-Heron and Sue Anastasopoulos, who are both cleaning the harvested plants and hanging them up in the shade.

Garlic from Ashton: Taste and quality Taste is the key, Dave says. If customers like to eat the garlic, then they will be back to buy more of it. But he is adamant that the garlic sold must be quality, no matter how much work is involved. And this can mean working in the heat in the garden for up to eight to ten hours a day. There is a lot of hand labour involved, especially with the organic emphasis in his garden. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Go quality or go home,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sell junk.â&#x20AC;? Any garlic that does not meet his standards for selling (the clove might be slightly split) is not wasted, though. It goes to his daughter Donna who is able to use it in making her garlic jellies. Dave says that garlic does not like stand-

ing in water. This was not a problem last year with its drought conditions but this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wet conditions did affect the crop somewhat. Dave had installed an irrigation system just before last year, so his crop was not impacted by the dry conditions of 2012. Beginning about the first week of June, garlic needs about an inch of water a week. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wet weather provided this. Last year Daveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s irrigation system provided it. He likes to have his crop all harvested and cured in time for sale at the Carp Garlic Festival in early August. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 14th annual Carp Garlic Festival on Saturday, Aug. 10 and Sunday, Aug. 11 will feature 35 garlic vendors which will include Dave and his Ashton Station Garlic booth. All of the crop must be pulled out by hand or with the aid of a garden pitch fork. The

garlic cloves are cleaned off and the plants are hung up in the shade to dry out, taking about three weeks to cure properly. Dave says that harvested garlic should always be kept in the shade. When they are completely dried out, he assembles them in batches of six, all graded and identified by variety. He advises that garlic should never be refrigerated because in the cool, the garlic will start to grow. One pest that impacts growing garlic is the leek month but Dave, along with other local growers, is doing his part in trying to eliminate this pest. He is taking part in Agriculture Canada research on the leek moth and has a couple of leek moth capture stations in his garden to help with the research towards developing a biological control of leek moths.

Special to the News

News - Blood is in high demand. Canadian Blood Services reports that over the next two weeks, 17,000 more Canadians need to book an appointment to donate blood. For the Ottawa area, there needs to be 1,312 more donors booking an appointment. Fortunately, there is a Canadian Blood Services community blood donor clinic coming up in Stittsville. This community blood donor clinic is being held on Friday, Aug. 2 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the parish hall at Holy Spirit Catholic Church on Shea Road in Stittsville. To book an appointment, please visit or call 1-888-2 DONATE (1-888-236-6283). During the summer months, the need for blood donations remains but donors take vacations, change their normal routines and otherwise miss the opportunity to give blood. This year, there were lower than expected collections at the end of June and during the ďŹ rst two weeks of July. Hence the need for more donors to book an appointment for the upcoming blood donor clinic in Stittsville. All blood donations at community blood donor clinics held by Canadian Blood Services like this upcoming one on Friday, Aug. 2 in Stittsville are essential because every minute of every day in Canada, someone needs blood and the only way that the blood is available when needed is through the generosity and caring of blood donors who willingly attend community blood donor clinics to donate blood. It often requires many units of blood to help just one patient. A car accident victim, for example, can need up to 50 units of blood which means 50 blood donations are needed just to help that one patient. Leukemia patients can need as many as eight units of blood a week as part of their treatment. Canadian Blood Services, which organizes these community blood donor clinics like the one coming up in Stittsville, is a national, not-for-proďŹ t charitable organization that manages the blood supply in all provinces and territories in Canada except for Quebec. A separate organization, Hema-Quebec, operates in the province of Quebec. Canadian Blood Services organizes more than 22,000 community blood donor clinics across Canada each year. It collects about 850,000 units of blood annually and then processes the blood into the components and products that are administered to thousands of patients each year through blood transfusions.


News - City council is doubling down by asking the province if Ottawa can have two gambling sites. While council had already indicated a preference to see gambling options expanded where they already exist in Ottawa â&#x20AC;&#x201C; at the Rideau Carleton Raceway â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the vote on July 17 means councillors would like to see another casino site in addition to keeping at least 21 gaming tables at the raceway. The move was in response to what Mayor Jim Watson and councillors have been hearing from residents, said Beacon Hill-Cyrville Coun. Tim Tierney, who proposed the motion. Osgoode Coun. Doug Thompson represents the raceway in his ward. He said he brought the largest petition he can recall a politician presenting: a 70,000-signature petition supporting saving jobs at the raceway by keeping gambling there. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There must be a fair and open process for casino bidding,â&#x20AC;? Watson said, adding that he feels there has been plenty of consultation on the issue already. All members of council supported Tierneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s move to refer the discussion to a special meeting of the ďŹ nance and economic development committee on Aug. 26 so public delegates could come speak to the concept of creating two gambling zones in Ottawa. But that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean the idea of having two casinos has unanimous support around the council horseshoe. One of the most vocal casino opponents, Gloucester-Southgate Coun. Diane Deans, dissented on the parts of the motion asking for two gambling zones for Ottawa. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is conďŹ rmation of a pre-determined outcome that we want more gaming in Ottawa,â&#x20AC;? Deans said, noting that perhaps the city might want to do more consultation on the matter before coming to that conclusion. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why she voted in favour of sending the matter to the committee on Aug. 26. The move made other councillors happy, though, because it removed the perception that city council is favouring one community institution â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the raceway â&#x20AC;&#x201C; over another, like the Ottawa Senators and Canadian Tire Centre. Sens owner Eugene Melnykâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pleas to let him bid for a casino at the arena were shot down at a recent committee meeting when councillors voted to limit gambling to the raceway. Tierneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s motion at the July 17 council meeting could re-open the door for a casino in Kanata or elsewhere in the city. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This somehow devolved (into

With the OMB settlement of the City of Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s urban boundary issue, the new boundaries came into effect in 2012. Included in this expansion was the land immediately north of the properties on Bradâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Court, Forestgrove Drive and Poplarwood Avenue. Not that this has occurred, the landowners wish to move forward with development. On Wednesday, August 21st the developers are hosting a public meeting to discuss their concept plan for the property and to solicit feedback from the community. This meeting will take place at 7:00pm at the Johnny Leroux Arena, 10 Warner Colpitts Lane, Stittsville. A formal application has not yet been submitted for this proposed development so this is a very good opportunity to get involved at the beginning. Councillor for Hire: Rideau Pines Farm It has been nearly two years since I began working one different job each month as a way to learn more about Rideau-Goulbourn, its businesses and its residents. Rideau Pines Farm really captures the spirit of why I wanted to start being a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Councillor for Hireâ&#x20AC;? and I had the opportunity to spend a day at the farm on Friday, July 12th. The work day began in the ďŹ elds, picking daikon radishes, onions, potatoes, kohlrabi, broccoli and zucchini. I also did a little sampling tasting fresh picked red currants and sugar snap peas. There is no shortage of selection at Rideau Pines with several acres of delicious farm fresh products that include asparagus, gooseberries, squash, garlic, eggplant, tomatoes, dill, etc. After lunch, I accompanied Matt to deliver Rideau Pines products to restaurants across the city. Next time you happen to be at a downtown restaurant or out in the Glebe or Westboro, you may very well be eating vegetables from Rideau Pines Farm. Our deliveries included stops downtown at The SmoQue Shack, Murray Street KWC, Brothers Beer Bistro, Play Food & Wine, Beckta, and Oz Kafe. We then made a couple stops in the Glebe at the Urban Pear and Nicastroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s followed by a stop on Preston at the Black Cat Bistro followed by our ďŹ nal stop of the day at the Wellington GastroPub. Rideau Pines Farm has been operating for over 30 years out of their location at 5714 Fourth Line Road. What began as one of the very ďŹ rst pick your own berries locations in this area has become a great business providing local products at the North Gower Farmers Market, at their own shop on the farm and at many restaurants across the city. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to thank the Vandenberg family for inviting me and allowing me to be an employee for a day. It was a beautiful day on the farm. For more information about Rideau Pines, visit www.rideaupinesfarm. com. Carp Road Snow Disposal Facility In January 2012, the City of Ottawa initiated a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA) study to establish a new snow disposal facility in the Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s west end. The Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s strategic snow disposal plan (2002) had identiďŹ ed the need to provide for 308,000 cubic metres of capacity within one or more snow disposal facilities in the west end. This study is being planned as a Schedule B project in accordance with the requirements of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment, as amended 2011, which is an approved process under the Environmental Assessment Act. The ďŹ rst Open House was held in February 2013 to present the problem deďŹ nition. This Open House, the second one, will present the results of the various site investigations undertaken during 2012/2013 to characterize the site and the environment; identify the alternative designs and mitigating measures being evaluated; and describe the recommended preferred design/solution. The Public Open House will also provide the public with an opportunity to discuss the study with the study team and to provide input and comment. This upcoming open house, being planned as a drop-in consultation session with no formal presentation, will be held at the former Goulbourn Town Hall between 4:00pm and 7:00pm on Tuesday, August 6th. Public comments are welcome throughout the study. All comments received will be collected in accordance with the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act and the Environmental Assessment Act, and will become part of the public record. Following this meeting, the draft study will be revised to incorporate the comments received during the Phase 2 consultation and a ďŹ nal draft made available for a 30 day public review. A Notice of Completion shall be published at that time providing the details on that mandatory public review process. Additional information is available on the City of Ottawa website at If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please email me at Scott. or contact me by phone at 613-580-2491.


something) about saving jobs,â&#x20AC;? said Bay Coun. Mark Taylor, who was the seconder on Tierneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s motion. â&#x20AC;&#x153; The debate about gambling resulted in pitting two community resources against each other â&#x20AC;Ś This motion restores fairness.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;It gives everyone a chance to be at the table,â&#x20AC;? said OrlĂŠans Coun. Bob Monette, who was among the councillors who wanted to protect the raceway but be fair to other casino bidders at the same time. But it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be the ďŹ rst time the mayor has asked for two gambling sites in Ottawa. Watson has previously written to the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation and provincial ofďŹ cials to ask for a â&#x20AC;&#x153;satellite facilityâ&#x20AC;? to complement gaming operations at the raceway. He received no response. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s different than asking for two gambling sites in the form of two gaming zones for Ottawa, Watson said, so heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hoping for more success this time around â&#x20AC;&#x201C; especially since he now has the support of council. West Carleton-March Coun. Eli El-Chantiry was among those who pointed out that the city has misstepped as it tries to react to a process dictated by the OLG. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a lesson in what not to do,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really hard to turn a big ship after itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been sailing for a while.â&#x20AC;? Other councillors wanted city staff to prepare a report on the socio-economic impacts of expanding gambling in Ottawa. Council has already ordered such a report, but it wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be undertaken until after a casino location had been proposed. If Tierneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s motion was accepted by the committee in August, it would kick off such a study, but only for the raceway location. Knoxdale-Merivale Coun. Keith Agli said he planned to ask for an amendment to ensure the study looks at the possibility of more than one gambling site. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We should understand what kind of problem we could be creating,â&#x20AC;? said Capital Coun. David Chernushenko, who is not in favour of a new casino. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In a way, the point is moot to me today about how many casinos we have and where they are located.â&#x20AC;? Somerset Coun. Diane Holmes, who leads the board of health, said there are currently about 13,000 people addicted to gambling in Ottawa. The city has around $740,000 in funding for treatment and prevention programs, but public health ofďŹ cials say Ottawa needs more like $4 million to address the needs of the gambling-addicted population here. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Part of the problem with the expansion of gambling is weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not taking the addiction issue seriously,â&#x20AC;? Holmes said.

Helping to build school in Nicaragua Special to the News

SchoolBOX for providing us with an opportunity to help make education possible for these children.” The funds raised are sponsoring five regional soccer tournaments in Nicaragua as well as providing educational supplies for hundreds of children. While in Nicaragua, the group helped with building a school, playing soccer every day with youngsters and worked with four school teams. The team spent five days in a Nicaraguan community, helping to build a school. This involved everything from digging trenches to mixing cement. “It was the most incredible experience of my life and I’ll never forger the time I spent with the children and all the nice people from the community,” said Gabriele Donnelly, 14, one of the six West Ottawa Soccer Club players on the trip. The players participated in a local soccer tournament, leading the warm-ups and playing a friendly match against the winning team at the end of the tournament. “I had so much fun watching these young athletes compete against each other and cheering them on,” said Tiffany Ingram, 14, another of the West Ottawa Soccer Club players. “I won’t ever forget my time in Nicaragua.” “I thought it would be very good for people to know that these people don’t have access to education, clean water or a strong roof over their

News - Six players and five others from the West Ottawa Soccer Club spent ten days in Nicaragua earlier this month helping to build a school on behalf of SchoolBOX, a Canadian charity dedicated to making education possible for all children in Nicaragua. The West Ottawa Soccer Club draws is players from Stittsville, Richmond, Goulbourn, Kanata and West Carleton. The six West Ottawa Soccer Club athletes were Gabriele Donnelly, Kathleen Carson, Priya Nagpal, Tiffany Ingram, Jessica Aiello and Talia Laroche. They travelled to Nicaragua along with Peter Donnelly, Lynn Aiello, Karri Dawson, John Carson and Dina Bell-Laroche, a West Ottawa Soccer Club coach. The group called themselves Team Nicaragua Bound, raising over $18,000 before departing thanks to sponsorships, donations and raffle tickets. The funds are providing financial assistance to support the building of a school and to provide the children with the supplies needed to study and learn. Nicaragua is the second poorest country in the western hemisphere where only half of the children even reach the fifth grade. “I can safely say that this experience was life changing for the entire team,” coach Bell-Laroche said. “We received so much more than we gave, and we are deeply grateful to

Wayne Byrne: A life filled with horses Lynda Rivington Special to the News


News – Growing up in the 1950s on a farm that is now part of Ottawa’s National Capital Equestrian Park, a young Wayne Byrne could not have envisioned the decades ahead filled with horses. The “horse bug” first hit Wayne with the work horses that his dad used on the farm. When his father sold the farm, eight year old Wayne moved with his family to South March, now a part of Kanata, but he missed the horses. It turned out that his uncle at Bells Corners lived next door to Frank Florence who owned the Florence Paper Company in Ottawa and had horses and pones. Wayne, then 12 years old, jumped at the chance to live with the Florence family and work with these horses and ponies. His parents agreed to the arrangement provided that he attend high school there. The Florence family also showed champion Cocker Spaniels and ran a dog grooming business but Wayne worked mostly with their horses and ponies including Shetlands, quarter Horses and a Thoroughbred/Quarter Horse cross. While he both rode and drove the horses and ponies, Wayne’s primary interest became in driving the Shetlands. His first show was at the Carp Fair in the 1950s, driving a Shetland. Wayne’s experience with the Florence family sparked a lifelong love of owning and showing Quarter Horses that took him through the 1960’s, 1970’s and 1980’s, time that he also spent working in the electrical trade. In 1965, Wayne married Gwen Sells of Stittsville and a farm at Stittsville become home for 25 years. Initially he had Angus cattle but gave them up for his true love – horses. Wayne had always been interested in breeding horses and wanted to buy a stallion. Making an agreement with his wife that he could buy a stallion if he quit smoking, in 1977 he brought his first of four stallions, a Quarter Horse named Judge Me. He subsequently purchased two more Quarter Horse stallions, Impressive Low Win and Sir Danny Pine. His fourth stallion, a Thoroughbred named Two Time Bruce, was purchased to cross with Quarter Horses, Pains and Appaloosas. The

offspring could be registered as appendix horses once they accumulated the required ten point status in their respective breeds. Two Time Bruce was also bred to hunter mares as he was an approved Canadian Sport Horse stallion. An interest in breeding horses through artificial insemination (AI) ensued for Wayne. Teaming up with Stittsville veterinarian Casey Ringelberg, the pair imported semen from European stallions over a 20 year period, using Judge Me and Two Time Bruce as teaser stallions for the designated mares. As well, Wayne shipped semen from Two Time Bruce to breeders across Canada, from Prince George, B.C., through to Prince Edward Island. Two Time Bruce often bred up to 30 mares a year through AI. During this time, Wayne never gave up his love of driving and competed in Quarter Horse shows with both Judge Me and Impressive Low Win. He qualified three horses to go to the American Quarter Horse Association World Championship Show in Oklahoma City. Another phrase of horsemanship, namely training, subsequently opened up for Wayne. People brought horses to him that they had started driving but needed further help with training. There were also horses that had never been driven. In some years, Wayne would have 15 to 18 such horses at his place for training. From the mid 1980s into the 1990s, Wayne also helped organize driving clinics and gave clinics and driving lessons. In 2000, two things happened. First, Wayne and Gwen sold their farm and purchased a smaller place in Munster. Secondly, Miniature Horses caught Wayne’s eye. Suddenly, Wayne was driving singles, tandems and pairs of Miniature Horses and having a great time. Even Gwen, who had no interest in being in the show ring, started driving Miniature Horses for fun. Wayne has subsequently trained many Miniature Horses and continues to help people drive their minis and horses. Helping people with driving led to a related interest – restoring vehicles. Often people who brought animals to Wayne for training would need a vehicle and harness for when they brought the animals back home.

Wayne would help them find a suitable carriage or cart and harness so that they could continue driving. With a carriage shop on his property in Munster, Wayne rebuilt and repaired cutters, buggies and twowheeled carts. He also went to carriage sales where he purchased vehicles for clients or ones that he could fix up and sell. Volunteering has been an important and rewarding part of Wayne’s life. He served as president of the Ottawa Valley Western Horse Association, the Dwyer Hill Riding Club, the Upper Ottawa Valley Quarter Horse Association and the Richmond Agricultural Society, host of the annual Richmond Fair. He also helped out at the annual Carp Fair. Back in the 1980s when he was starting to drive seriously, he belonged to the Ontario Pleasure Driving Association. The local Eastern Ontario Pleasure Driving Society (EOPDS) seemed like a logical step. So he joined and served as a director for several years, subsequently being awarded a “People Make A Difference Award” from the Ontario Equestrian Federation. As an EOPDS director, he worked tirelessly for the Society’s annual dinner dances and along with Barry Beach also ran several clinics at Stittsville’s Sunset Farms where they brought in noted clinicians such as Kirsten Brunner, Jeff Kohler, Gerry McCallum and Francois Bergeron. A highlight of Wayne’s volunteer work has been helping at the Walnut Hill Carriage Driving Show near Rochester, N.Y. for the past seven years. While Gwen assists in the show office, Wayne is a fixture at the in-gate, working as a whipper-in and offering support to exhibitors entering the show ring. “Walnut Hill isn’t work,” Wayne says. “It’s a real holiday where you meet the same people year after year and it’s a big reunion.” Wayne and Gwen downsized recently and moved to a bungalow in Carleton Place. Since he no longer has horses in his backyard, he is now freer to go to other people’s places to help with their driving and training or to get horses going again that may have been on the shelf for a while. He also has more time to help clubs and groups interested in driving and also to drive pairs and tandems of minis for others.


Wayne Byrne drives the Welsh pony “Pip” in the 2012 Walnut Hill Carriage Driving Show in Pittsford, N.Y. While Wayne loves helping beginners, he is quick to recognize when it is time for clients to move on to different trainers. If someone reaches a certain level and is seriously interested in driven dressage or combined driving, for example, Wayne will recommend that the person move on to a coach specializing in that particular area. Over the years, Wayne has met lots of people and has made many great friends. He takes pride in the people and horses that he has been able to

help and the great friends that he and Gwen have made over the decades. Venues and disciplines may have changed over the decades but helping others with their horses has been a constant. (Editor’s note: This article originally appeared in the Feb. 2013 issue of “The Rider,” a horse publication based in Ancaster, Ontario published by Barry Finn. Founder Aidan Finn was inducted into the Ontario Quarter Horse Association Hall of Fame in 2004).

Camp Awesome vacation bible camp in Stittsville Special to the News

News - The Camp Awesome vacation bible camp at Stittsville United Church in Stittsville last week lived up to its name – it was “awesome.” With 50 youngsters enrolled, the week-long camp saw lots of activities, all done under the supervision and with the help of a number of youth counsellors, wearing dark red t-shirts. On Friday, for instance, when the youngsters had dispersed in groups

into different rooms at the church, one group went over the story of the Prodigal Son which led to a discussion about forgiveness, and unconditional love. With Camp Awesome’s grand finale presentation to parents in the afternoon, each group had to ensure that it had a song prepared for the event in the church sanctuary. In addition, each group had a banner identifying itself. This banner had to be designed and created by the youngsters them-

selves. Possible songs which groups could choose included Kumbaya, Jesus Loves Me, Party Hardy at Camp Awesome and the Shark Song. Camp Awesome is a week-long Christian day camp program sponsored by the Ottawa Presbytery of the United Church of Canada. Youngsters aged 4 to 12 can attend. Activities can include games, crafts, drama, singing and learning about faith and Bible stories.

He had a great presence on all of his teams, both skillfully and socially. He is regarded as a coachâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dream, listening to what needs to be done and then executing the play. A player with high expectations of his performance, he worked hard in all sports trying to achieve those expectations. A quiet leader who sets a great example for his teammates â&#x20AC;&#x201C; thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Kyle Kuehni. It is the coaches for the various teams in each sport who pick the most sportsmanlike player based on the criteria of fair play, following the rules of the game, respecting the judgment of referees and officials as well as all coaches, their teammates and their opponents, being eager to play the game and exhibiting a positive attitude.

Special to the News

News - Monday, Sept. 30 is the deadline for the submission of entries to this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heritage photo contest being sponsored by the Goulbourn Township Historical Society. Up until then, entries can be dropped off at the Stittsville, Richmond and Munster branches of the Ottawa Public Library. Entries must be colour or black and white prints, anything up to 8 x 10 inches in size. Entries to this â&#x20AC;&#x153;A Snapshot in Timeâ&#x20AC;? photo contest must be original shots taken within the boundaries of the former township of Goulbourn during 2013. They cannot have been previously published or entered in any other contest or showing. There are five different theme categories, with a photographer allowed to submit up to two entries in each category. Entries should be enclosed in a sealed envelope with each separate photo clearly marked on its back with the location where it was taken, the subject, the name, address and phone number of the photographer and the theme category being entered. In addition, brief notes explaining the historical connection of a particular shot are welcomed. Such information could potentially enhance the points awarded by the judges for a particular entry. The five theme categories in this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s photo contest are â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heritage Homes in Goulbournâ&#x20AC;?; â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Richmond Fair 2013: Tomorrowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Historyâ&#x20AC;?; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Goulbourn Swamps & Wetlandsâ&#x20AC;?; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Links to the Pastâ&#x20AC;?; and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heritage Tombstones.â&#x20AC;? This year, a new wrinkle has been added to this annual heritage photo contest and that is a special youth category, open to local residents aged 17 and under. The categories are the same as are the contest rules such as the photo must be taken this year within the boundaries of the former Goulbourn township. But in this youth section of the contest, entries are to be submitted via email, with a one Megabyte (MB) file size as the maximum allowed per shot. Such entries are to be emailed to . For all entrants to this heritage photo contest, both young and others, there is no entry fee. However, all entries do become the property of the Goulbourn Township Historical Society. Judging will be based on both historic interest and photographic merits such as the use of lighting, composition and impact. Detailed rules can be found on the Historical Societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website at . Details of the prizes to be awarded and a public unveiling of the contestâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s winning entries will be announced later.

Meeting for hotels Special to the News

News - A public information meeting to discuss rezoning of a site in the shadow of Canadian Tire Centre (formerly Scotiabank Place) to allow for a hotel/restaurant development is being held on Tuesday, Aug. 6. It will take place at 7 p.m. at the hall at the Johnny Leroux Stittsville Community Arena in Stittsville. The proposed hotel/restaurant project would be located at the northwest corner of Huntmar Drive and Palladium Drive, immediately west of the Canadian Tire Centre, while it would be surrounded on the northwest by the Palladium Auto Park. The proposal calls for two 100-room

hotels plus two stand-alone buildings housing restaurants. One hotel, a proposed 100 room, four storey building, would face on Huntmar Drive at the Huntmar Drive/Palladium Drive corner while a second hotel, a proposed 100 room, five story building, would face on Palladium Drive just east of Auto Park Private going into the Palladium Auto Park. The two stand-alone buildings housing restaurants would be located on Huntmar Drive immediately north of the four storey hotel building. Each stand alone building will be able to house a sit-down restaurant with the size of 5,812 square feet.

This proposed hotel/restaurant complex would have its own parking area located behind the buildings. At the Aug. 6 meeting, the rezoning application for the site will be discussed. Changes to the existing zoning on the site will be an increase in height from 12 metres to 24 metres; adding a hotel as a permitted use; increasing the area allowed for a restaurant use; and reducing parking requirements from 308 to 301 spaces. More information about this rezoning proposal can be obtained by contacting city of Ottawa planner Tracey Scaramozzino at 613-580-2424, ext. 12545 or via email at .

have been a part of Ontario’s agricultural history for over a century. They give farmers an opportunity to display their plowing skills while also learning about the importance of soil conservation. At the Ottawa Carleton Plowing Match, plows used will vary from newer reversible plows to walking plows used with a team of horses. The Ottawa Carleton plowmen’s Association, host of the Ottawa Carleton Plowing Match, is marking its 89th year this year. It all began back in 1919 when Melvin A. Powell, a Marlborough township farmer, en-

couraged the formation of the Marlborough and North Gower Plowmen’s Association. It even hosted an International Plowing Match in 1932 at the Central Experimental Farm in Ottawa. The plow is one of the oldest tillage tools known to man. By the time of the Romans, wooden plows that somewhat resemble modern plows were in use, being pulled by oxen. The plow is used to transform land into a productive seedbed. This is done by preparing a seedbed with a top layer of soil that can easily surrounded the newly planted seed and

encourage germination; by helping to control weeds; by assisting in the degradation of mulch into organic matter; by increasing water retention; and by improving soil aeration. With today’s new plow designs and increased horsepower from tractors, plowing now plays a part in tillage, cropping, conservation and environmental practices including soil conservation through the control of water and wind erosion, improved secondary tillage, energy conservation through reduced tillage practices, chemical weed control and precision seed placement.

MARY COOK Mary Cookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Memories Lifestyle - All Mother needed for an excuse to have a picnic was a sunny and hot Sunday afternoon -- after church, of course. Father thought the whole idea was nonsense when you could spend the afternoon having a little nap in the grape arbour. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That once-a-year church picnic is enough for me,â&#x20AC;? he lamented. Fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resting in the summer often moved him from the rocking chair in the kitchen with his feet on the oven door of the Findlay Oval to the grape arbour, where an old lawn chair and the two-seater swing sat in the cool haven of the overhanging grape leaves. But of course, as for the Sunday picnic, Mother overruled and we five children were thrilled beyond belief: we would be spending the afternoon on the banks of the Bonnecherre River. It was a hefty walk to get to the river, overloaded as we were with baskets of lunch, bats and balls, our swim suits and towels, Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s newspapers, scrap books and diaries. I always had to take at least one doll with me too. As long as Father had his pipe and a good supply of tobacco that

Fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s patience runs out for picnic and he heads back home for real meal

was about all he was interested in lugging down to the river. The cook stove would be allowed to go out on Saturday night. That meant a cold breakfast, which further annoyed Father, who didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t consider any meal worth pulling a chair up to the table for unless it included meat and potatoes. But Mother let the stove die down because that meant a nice cool kitchen when we got back from our picnic on Sunday, a rare treat from a stove that blasted out blistering heat waves 24 hours a day, every other day of the week. As soon as we got back from church, and while the boys and Father tended to the last-minute chores in the barn, Audrey and Mother would haul bowls of food out of the ice box that had been prepared the night before. This meant hard boiled eggs, mashed fine, sliced cold pork and roast beef, cucumbers, lettuce and tomatoes, and of course, a slab cake smothered in brown-sugar icing. It didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take long for thick sandwiches, sliced vegetables and a huge sealer of iced tea to be ready to pack into 11-quart baskets, all wrapped in an ample supply of clean flour-bag tea towels -- we had enough food to feed half of Renfrew County!

We would pile as much as we could on the little wagon with wobbly tin wheels, which I used to hitch our old collie dog to so my dolls could be pulled around the yard. It was better than lugging the heavy baskets down to the river. We always went to the same spot on the Bonnechere, where the old maple tree had long since fallen across the narrowest part of the river and where there was a wide grassy bank and more trees. My sister Audrey spread out two blankets and covered the little wagon with another to keep the lunch as cold as possible. Wearing short pants for bathing suits, my brothers were in the water almost as soon as we hit the river, Mother had propped herself against a tree with her books and papers spread around her, Audrey and I hid behind a tree and stripped off our clothes and got into two suits Aunt Freda had sent us from Chicago. They were scratchy, made of pure wool, and as soon as they were wet, went as hard as cement, but they were all we had. Father walked around with his pipe hanging out of his mouth, not looking at all pleased. He asked Mother when she planned on taking out the

lunch, lamenting that what he had for breakfast couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really be called a decent meal. Mother said lunch was a long way off, and he might as well settle down and have a little nap. The afternoon wore on. Emerson said he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t care if we ever went back home. The three boys had water fights, tried to catch fish with a makeshift pole and jumped off the fallen tree to see who could land the farthest. Audrey was reading her books borrowed from the Renfrew Library and I was playing with my doll, pretending she was a brand new baby and this was her first outing on a picnic. Well, Father never did settle down for a nap. He walked the shoreline, he lit and relit his pipe, and when he finally sat down with his back against a tree, he never took his eyes off the blanket covering the lunch. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Think Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll head back to the barns to check on that cow that didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t look too good this morning,â&#x20AC;? he said. Even though we had yet to eat the lunch, I knew Father wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be back, and I knew too the cow had little to do with it. When the sun was heading for the west and we had eaten the lunch, the boys had dried off, and everything

was packed onto the little red wagon, Father still hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come back. Mother assured me he would be just fine. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He just doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like picnics,â&#x20AC;? she said. We gathered up our belongings and started for home. I saw it before anyone else -- there was smoke coming out of the chimney over our house. Mother just let out a long and laboured sigh when I pointed it out to her. We opened the kitchen door to blazing heat and there was Father sitting at the old pine table. He hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bothered taking off his straw hat and in front of him was a dinner plate piled high with fried potatoes, slabs of salt pork and enough buttered bread to feed a family of six. The white granite tea pot was boiling on the stove and Father had opened a jar of preserves and they werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t in a fruit nappy, but in a soup bowl. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Well, so much for a nice cool kitchen,â&#x20AC;? was all Mother said. Finally, Father stopped shovelling in his food long enough to look up from his plate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A man canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be expected to work from dawn to dusk and survive on a sandwich and a piece of cake,â&#x20AC;? he said, taking another long slurp of hot tea from his saucer.

FOOD & NEWS Blueberry coconut dessert is light on calories, not on taste Special to the News

Connected to your community

Stittsville Public School class in 1951

Lifestyle - This is a new twist on the classic angel food cake. Served with yogurt sauce, it makes a low-fat dessert. Preparation time: 10 minutes. Baking time: 40 minutes. Serves 12.

Special to the News

Ingredients * 750 ml (3 cups) blueberries or raspberries * 430 g (1 package) angel food cake mix * 375 ml (1-1/2 cups) toasted flaked coconut * 375 ml (1-1/2 cups) zero per cent Greek yogurt * 75 ml (1/3 cup) part skim milk * 45 ml (3 tbsp) liquid honey * 5 ml (1 tsp) vanilla Preparation Line a 34-by-22-centimetre (13-by-9-inch) cake pan with parchment paper. Rinse the blueberries and pat them dry with paper towels. Spread the berries in a pan. Prepare the cake mix according to the package directions. Fold in 175 ml (3/4 cup) of the coconut. Spoon the mixture evenly over the berries. Bake in a 180 C (350 F) oven for 35 to 40 minutes or until the cake is a deep golden brown and toothpick inserted in centre comes out clean. Let it cool on rack for 10 minutes then invert it onto baking sheet or cutting board. Carefully peel off the paper and let it cool completely. Cover the cake with plastic wrap or foil. If you’re making it a day ahead, refrigerate. To serve, mix together the yogurt, milk, honey and vanilla. Cut cake into squares and drizzle each with yogurt sauce. Garnish with the remaining coconut.


This is a photo taken in May, 1951 of the junior room class at Stittsville Public School, taken by Gordon S. Way, a Stittsville resident at that time. The teacher, Miss Joyce Frances, standing at the left back in the photo, boarded at the Way’s home on Abbott Street. In fact, she was even married at the Way home. Three of those in the back row are Jocelyn Bradley, Susan Ellis and Elizabeth Way. But the other names are not known. Perhaps you know a name or two?

News - The immediate post-war years were exciting in Stittsville, particularly with regard to education. That’s because the community’s school, S.S. No. 12 of Goulbourn, dating back to 1875 and much in need of replacement, was finally replaced. And not just with any school but with a school that became a showplace of the latest in school buildings. Officially opened on June 6, 1947, this new school, known as Stittsville Public School, meant that Stittsville, then numbering about 400 people, was the first rural Ontario community to build a school using a design recommended in an interim report of a special committee appointed by the Ontario government in 1945 to investigate school requirements and establish classroom standards. Upon completion, this new Stittsville Public School became a “must see” for many in education. Teachers, architects, trustees and government officials all visited the school. Articles appeared about it. Indeed, Stittsville became known as the “place with the new school.” The overall cost of the new two-room school was $40,000 which was financed by 20 debentures totaling that amount plus interest. Sixty percent of the debentures were assumed by the provincial Department of Education. A Home and School Association was formed to support the school and its activities. The new school had two rooms, a junior room and a senior room. Indoor plumbing was another feature. This new two room school became the basis for what grew to become a much larger school building, with addition after addition built in the 1950’s and 1960’s as Stittsville saw its first burst of housing growth. This Stittsville Public School facility including these two initial rooms still exists today on Stittsville Main Street, with the Frederick Banting Alternate Site Program occupying much of the facility while the Main Street Community Services which provides services for special needs youth and their families occupying the second floor at the rear of the building.

The photo does not do justice to my color I am so handsomely brilliantly red ... I am sooo very ready for a family of my own. I am so sweet, cuddly, laid back and loving, once you have me in your arms I will just snuggle into your neck and will be melting. Love to have you as my family and if you have another feline resident that is good too because I love other cats and be a friend to them. Come and see me... I KNOW YOU WILL LOVE ME.




For adopting this or any other cat contact GWEN at 613-258-2622. Check out the Website for available cats and more info. Looking for volunteers and foster families to help out with cat care. We are a registered charity.
