News - Christmas has come early to Main Street Community Services in Stittsville as it has received a $20,000 lump sum donation. The registered not-for-profit charity which provides programs and services for children, youth and adults with special needs doesn’t see this kind of donation come along very often. But it has now thanks to the generosity of Walton Development and Management, a real estate investment and land development company with nearly 13,000 acres of land owned or managed in Ontario including in Niagara, Brant County, Simcoe and Ottawa. The firm’s 47 person team in Ontario is comprised of people who call each of their markets home. So this donation was presented to Shelley-Anne Steinburg, founder and executive director of Main Street Community Services, at Main Street Community Services’ Stittsville premises by Jean Lachance who is general manager (Ottawa) for Walton Development and Management.

She points out that Main Street Community Services is continually fundraising to meet expenses and yet even the two biggest annual fundraising activities, which take up hundreds of hours for her staff and parent volunteers, provide nowhere near the funds of this one generous donation.

Main Street Community Services tries to put an emphasis on relationships, individuality and dedication to humanitarianism. Indeed, it has become known as the place that supports “the kids no one else would take� due to their dual diagnosis, highly complex needs and difficult behaviours.

Yet this number is only scratching the surface of the reported number of families seeking such services in Eastern Ontario. With a high staff to child ratio required, Main Street Community Services is limited to how many families it can support because they have outgrown their current facilities, with the day programs operating out of the second floor at the former Stittsville Public School building on Stittsville Main Street. This building also houses the Ottawa Carleton District School Board’s Frederick Banting Alternate Program school.

Kodiak’s Customer Appreciation Day John Curry


News - Bluegrass music drifted over the yard at the Kodiak Snow Blowing and Lawn Care office at the corner of Carp Road and Rothbourne Road in Stittsville last Saturday. It was part of the annual Customer Appreciation Day happenings that were taking place there. Source of the music was the traditional bluegrass group “Dusty Strings” which just the night before had played at the Friday music evening at the Gaia Java Coffee Company shop in Stittsville. Performing at the Kodiak Snow Blowing and Lawn Care event were Bernie Mason on guitar and vocals, Mavis Mason on bass and vocals, Vic Chartrand on mandolin and banjo and Don Hill on Dobro resonator guitar. They performed on a wagon which had a hay bale skirt, adding to the atmosphere created by the group’s down-to-earth, country bluegrass offerings. “Dusty Strings” also performed at this Customer Appreciation Day last year. There was even another wagon with hay bale seating on which those attending could sit and enjoy the music on the sunny, blue sky day, perhaps while enjoying a hamburger or hot dog freshly grilled by Kodiak staffers Clint Crawford and Jason Dombroskie.

There was also another popular food item available, the always-tasty popcorn. Horse rides were available as well thanks Shawna Carwardine and her longtime horse “Katie.” Riders were taken around the yard, circling a giant front end loader that was parked in the middle of the yard.

Face painting for youngsters was another feature at this Customer Appreciation Day. Kodiak Snow Blowing and Lawn Care provides snow blowing services to residents in the Stittsville and Kanata areas. In the summer, it provides lawn cutting services as well as interlock stone work.

No visible changes at Richmond arena despite work John Curry

News - Anyone walking into the Richmond Memorial Community Centre arena during this weekend’s annual Richmond Fair, whether to hear fiddler Natalie MacMaster on Thursday evening or any of the entertainers that will be gracing the arena stage from Friday through Sunday, will not see any noticeable change there despite the fact that the city of Ottawa spent over half a million dollars on work in the arena this past summer. Yes, that’s right - $550,000. And yet there’s nothing immediately visible to the visitor. That’s because all of the work involved replacement of the arena’s concrete ice pad that is underfoot and, in the hockey season, underskate. “It’s like we were never here,” said Mike Monfils who was involved with the summerlong project on behalf of the Laurin Group, the

project’s general contractor which has offices in Ottawa, Toronto and Montreal. The rink boards are the same; the lighting is the same; the dressing rooms are the same; the stands are the same; the players’ benches are the same; the ice plant is the same. But the concrete ice slab with all of the brine-carrying refrigeration piping in it has all been replaced. It may not look any different to the casual observer but it is – the concrete is a uniform six inches thick, reinforced by nine kilometers of rebar. There is four inches of insulation under the pad. The concrete itself has 15 kilometers of piping running through it, there to carry the brine that creates the cold conditions that allows for the making and maintaining of ice. And city of Ottawa Rideau-Goulbourn ward councillor Scott Moffatt is fully supportive of spending the dollars on replacing the concrete ice slab. “This is what the building is all about – the

ice surface,” he said in defending the expenditure. He acknowledged that the dressing rooms could use some renovation but he reiterated that the most important thing for an arena is that the ice slab be proper. And in the case of the Richmond arena, the ice slab was giving problems. When the old concrete and its imbedded piping was removed, piece by piece, it revealed that the concrete had varying thickness and the pipes consequently went up and down in places. There were also leaks happening, many in the header trench behind the boards at the north end of the rink but also others throughout the concrete slab. A special machine can be used in a perfectly quiet arena that can locate such leaks in the slab.

Richmond arena staff knew that there were leaks in the piping system because brine had to be added at times to the system, meaning it was disappearing through leaks. A leaking refrigeration system affects the efficiency of the ice making process in the arena. Although the Richmond arena has been recognized as one of the most efficient of the city’s arenas, the leaks were causing it to be less efficient than it could be. The ice plant at the Richmond arena did not have to be touched because all of its major components have been replaced over the past ten years. The Richmond arena does have a reputation for having good ice. This may have something to do with the well water that is used for the ice.

Fire ravaged building was general store for years John Curry

News - A “sad occasion for our community.� That’s how city of Ottawa Stittsville ward councillor Shad Qadri described the fire which ravaged the historic two storey brick building at

1518 Stittsville Main Street on Monday, Sept. 9 when mentioning the fire in his report about municipal and community events at the Stittsville Village Association executive meeting last Thursday, Sept. 12. It was later revealed that investigators from the Ontario Fire Marshal’s Office and from Ottawa Fire Servic-


The fire-ravaged two-storey brick building stands at 1518 Stittsville Main Street where it has been a focal point of the community for almost 140 years, serving as a hotel, general store, tea room and restaurant, among other things. A midday fire on Monday, Sept. 9 gutted the roof and second storey.

es have determined that the fire was caused by an electrical failure in the attic in the southwest corner of the building. Councillor Qadri noted that as an identified heritage building, any request for a demolition permit would have to go before the city’s heritage committee. He said that the second storey and the roof are destroyed but that the first floor is in fairly good shape. He said that Stittsville Main Street was closed overnight after the fire because of concerns that the brick structure might not be safe and could damage passing motorists with falling bricks. The street was opened to traffic on Tuesday, Sept. 10 after it was determined that the building was stable. This two storey brick building, originally built about 1875 as a hotel since it was right across the street from the village’s new (1870) railway station and was right beside the railway line that is now the Trans Canada Trail, is best known for being the home of Bradley’s general store for four decades, from 1919 to 1960. Fred Bradley had started his store in Stittsville in 1914, relocating to these larger premises in 1919. The store was also the location of Stittsville’s post office during the 1920’s and also had the first gasoline pump in Ontario when automobiles became popular.

Bradley’s general store was not only the place to shop in the village but it was a meeting place. Related businesses also sprung up, such as a farm equipment dealership, a feed operation and egg grading station. The store itself carried groceries, dry goods, shoes and boots and hardware. Fred Bradley passed away in 1943, with the store then being taken over by his wife Annie and his son Bill who continue to operate the store in one form or another until 1985 when his son Paul Bradley took over its operation. In 1960, Bill Bradley relocated the store from this two storey brick structure in the heart of Stittsville to larger premises farther south on Stittsville Main Street, where it operated as an IGA and then an M&M Store. His son Paul, who had spent ten years in Western Canada working for food companies in sales and marketing, returned home in 1981 to help with the operation of the family grocery business. After working under the guidance of his father Bill, he purchased the business in 1985. In 1988, he changed suppliers, operating under the Valu-Mart banner of National Grocers. Due to expanding sales, Paul decided to relocate to the then-new Stittsville Shopping Centre and in Aug. 1989, he opened one of the pioneer Your Independent Grocer fran-

chise with the first brand new 15,000 square foot YIG store ever built. Within five years, sales had increased over 50 percent, necessitating an expansion and renovation that saw the store grow to 25,000 square feet in size. In May 2003, Mr. Bradley decided to retire and sell the store back to National Grocers. The store continued to operate at the Stittsville Shopping Centre until the new 68,500 square foot premises of what is now Brown’s Your Independent Grocer were ready for occupancy that fall. This ended 89 years of Bradley family involvement in the grocery business in Stittsville, dating back to 1914, with almost half of this time spent in this two storey brick building at 1518 Stittsville Main Street. Since Bradley’s store left the brick building, it continued as retail space, hosting a fabric shop, a taxidermy shop, a tea room and a restaurant. The building was also home to a woodworking enterprise at one time. The two storey brick building is rectangular in shape, with a rear two storey wing. It at one time had a veranda for the first storey. Another unique architectural feature is an angled facade leading into the rear wing, with the façade only big enough for a door and second storey window. This angled facade is on the north side of the building.

‘Holes for Hospice’ golf tournament raises $45,000 John Curry

News - It was a chilly day for golf last Friday but a hot one for fundraising. The third annual Lennox Sterling Memorial “Holes for Hospice” Golf Tournament at the Loch March Golf and Country Club in rural Kanata raised $45,000, all directed once again this year to the ongoing Capital Campaign to establish a residential hospice in Kanata to serve the residents of the west end of the city. This year’s $45,000 means that this tournament, held in memory of longtime Richmond resident Lennox Sterling, has raised almost $150,000 for the Hospice Ottawa West Capital Campaign over its three year lifespan. The $45,000 figure was announced at the conclusion of the windup awards dinner that followed the best ball golf tournament that had begun with a shotgun start at 12 noon on the chilly and sometimes breezy day. A cocktail hour and then the awards dinner in the clubhouse completed the day, topped off by the announcement that the day had raised $45,000 for the Hospice Ottawa West Capital Campaign. Lennox Sterling had received end-of-life care at the Hospice at May Court at the time of his death. This high quality hospice care which Lennox and his family experienced at that time encouraged his family and friends to help establish a west end residential hospice. This resulted in the creation of the Lennox Sterling Memorial “Holes for Hospice” Golf Tournament which has now been held for three years. It was announced at this year’s tournament that next year’s fourth annual tournament

would be held on Friday, Sept. 12 at the Loch March course. Lennox’s wife, Kathleen Sterling, co-chair of the tournament since its inception along with co-chair Ian McLaren, Lennox’s good friend, has been involved with Friends of Hospice Ottawa since 2011, first on its Board of Directors and now as a special events volunteer and a member of the Hospice Ottawa West Capital Campaign Cabinet. With regard to this Hospice Ottawa West Capital Campaign, a site for a future residential hospice has been purchased on McCurdy Drive just off Terry Fox Drive in Kanata. The 3.6 acre site has been the longtime site of the Trinity Presbyterian Church which is now building a new and larger church on Richardson Side Road at Huntmar Drive in West Carleton, just minutes from Kanata and the Canadian Tire Centre. This new Trinity Presbyterian Church, which saw the roof trusses put in place on Sunday, Sept. 8, is expected to be completed by Easter 2014. The former church building, now owned by Hospice Care Ottawa, the new organization created at the beginning of this year from the amalgamation of Friends of Hospice Ottawa and the Hospice at May Court, is currently being retrofitted and will serve as the site for Hospice Care Ottawa’s administrative offices as well as a site for some community hospice programs. It is expected that by 2016, there will be a new ten bed residential hospice home also on the site. Meanwhile, the six million dollar Capital Campaign to accomplish this is set to get an-

other major boost as Hospice Care Ottawa is planning to announce on Wednesday, Oct. 2 a major gift to the Campaign by two Ottawa philanthropists whose names will go on the new hospice when it is built. Hospice Care Ottawa has entered into a partnership with the Bruyere Foundation to pursue this Capital Campaign. Rabbi Reuven Bulka is

the chair of the Hopsice Ottawa West (HOW) Capital Campaign. When the new hospice beds at this Kanata site become a reality in 2016, it will be a good start on meeting the need for such residential hospice beds in the west end of Ottawa, a need which has been pegged at 26 beds in recent studies.

It’s time for a dyslexia strategy


s our three-part series about dyslexia has illustrated, the learning disability is not well understood and support is lacking. For every child in the school system who shows signs of dyslexia, there should be someone looking out for them. We need better diagnosis, better support and more people involved in making sure we don’t leave kids behind because of their condition. A learning disability doesn’t mean a child can’t learn, it means the education system must find a better way to teach them. We all lose when a child can’t reach their potential. Dyslexia is a proven medical condition that’s detectable by a neurological scan yet there is no term in the diagnostic manual used by psychologists to clearly establish what help is needed. The education system is failing these students because there is next to no training on identification of dyslexia in Ontario teachers colleges. Even if your child has no learning disability, it’s in every child’s best interests to have resources provided – time and people and teaching methods – to address the needs of kids with dyslexia. A

teacher who has no training or extra time available must reduce time spent with all students if they are to help a child with a learning disability keep pace with his or her classmates. The statistics surrounding dyslexia are ominous. According to the International Dyslexia Association, 15 to 20 per cent of people in Ontario have some form of dyslexia, and 80 to 90 per cent of all learning disabilities can be attributed to the condition. Dyslexia is the only learning disability where you have to prove a child has it in order to get any support. The two largest school boards in Ottawa – both public and Catholic – will carry out a maximum of five assessments per school annually, far below the number of kids affected if the statistics are accurate. That leaves parents to pay for testing, and if they can’t afford it, a child goes untested and unhelped. That’s unCanadian. One expert quoted in our series suggests every child could learn to read using a phonetics-based teaching method that’s not available in the schools, further proof that it’s not our kids who are failing, but the entire education system.


Hope springs eternal as autumn blows into town


eople are starting to look for the leaves to turn, but in fact this is Canadian spring. Scoff, if you want, but then think about it. Spring, as we all know, is the time when the trees are sprouting, the flowers are budding, hope springs eternal and everything is new. It traditionally occurs in March or April, depending upon how far south you are, and the sporting metaphor is spring training. When spring training begins, every baseball team has a chance to win, theoretically. The shortcomings of the fall are ancient history and now all the people who were injured last season are all better now. Plus, there is a group of new players, each one better than the one before, each primed to crack the starting lineup. Spring is so wonderful. In our country, the spring phenomenon happens in the early fall. It happens right now. You can tell by reading the sports pages as they chronicle the preseason training camps of local hockey teams across the country. Hope springs eternal and everything is new. In Ottawa, every Senator who was hurt last year is in the best shape ever. The players who have arrived by trade are better than the ones who were traded. Some are even better

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town than Daniel Alfredsson. The players who didn’t get too much action last year are ready for lots of action this year. The players who spent most of their time in Binghamton are ready to spend all of their time with the big club. The flowers are budding, the leaves are sprouting. Never mind that soon they will fall off. Never mind, because we’re not done yet with being offered words of hope in the newspapers and on the radio. Don’t forget the numerous enthusiastic descriptions of the rookies, the players who were just drafted, who haven’t played a shift in the NHL, but look like they might be ready, even now. Under normal circumstances they’d be spending some time in the minor leagues

and be brought along slowly, but their talent is just so exceptional, not to mention their maturity, that they could well make the leap to the NHL. In Canadian spring, the general manager has a tough job deciding among all those deserving players, each one of them worthy of significant ice time in the big leagues. But it’s a problem he’s just glad to have. The team is healthier and deeper, and just in case it temporarily stops being healthy and deep, well, there are all those capable youngsters just waiting for their chance. The fans read all this stuff and hope comes to them. Just in time, too, because the baseball season hasn’t turned out exactly as they had anticipated. They want to believe: the ability to believe is what makes you a fan, rather than a critic or a professor or a political operative. There is so little to believe in unconditionally in these difficult and complicated times. Politics is tainted. Education is unfathomable. Even religion is less perfect than you would like it to be. But the home team: there’s something you can have faith in, no matter what. There is a certain innocence in being a fan. You put away your skepticism, saving it for your

place of work. You don’t analyze, you don’t hesitate. You believe and you read the sports pages and listen to the sports talk radio. Hockey spring is in the air and you have a spring in your step. There are cynics out there, of course, who might think they’ve read it all before -- read it, in fact, just prior to seasons that turned out to be an absolute disaster. But most fans are not cynical, at least not this early. Maybe later in the season the cynicism will creep in, when somehow the promise of the preseason doesn’t pan out. But not just now. It’s spring.

St. John Anglican Church providing Fair meals John Curry

News - It’s like having over 800 of your best friends over to dinner. Granted, it is stretched over a three day period but that is still a lot of mouths to feed. But this is the challenge which the parishioners of St. John the Baptist Anglican Church in Richmond are accepting this year as they are providing the home-cooked meals to Fair-goers in the Dining Hall at the Richmond fairgrounds for the first three days of the annual Fair. This involves a total of five different menus, covering lunch this Thursday, Sept. 19; lunch and then dinner this Friday, Sept. 20; and also lunch and dinner this Saturday, Sept. 21. After 7 p.m. on Saturday, everything is packed up and the Dining Hall is cleaned and left spotless for the caterer who provides the meals on Fair Sunday. And then it will be another four years before the folks at St. John’s Anglican Church will be doing it all again, as providing the Fair meals for the first three days of the annual Fair is a task that is rotated among four churches in Richmond – St. John’s Anglican Church, St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, St. Philip’s Catholic Church and St. Paul’s United Church. This year the planning at St. John’s Anglican Church started in early August, trying to determine who would do what. Everyone in the parish is phoned to become involved and/or to donate items like mustard or coffee. The menu is finalized. And a schedule if drawn up, listing the duties that need being done at the Dining Hall. This could be serving pies or serving food on the line or washing pots or whatever. Altogether, about 80 parishioners are slotted in at different times, doing these various jobs. Coralie Bartley, one of the main organizers of the church’s Fair meals effort this year, along with Jeannie Langman, says that there is an effort to move volunteers around to different tasks so that there is no boredom and so that they get to meet and work with more fellow parishioners and Fair goers. Indeed, this is one of the benefits that accrues to the church from this project. The church not only raises funds, usually in the neighbourhood

of $5,000 per Fair, but also parishioners, especially newer ones, get to work side by side with fellow parishioners, getting to know them better as they chat as they do their work tasks together. “It’s a country fair and we want that flavour to it,” Coralie Bartley says, noting that this year the church is aiming to have a real traditional feel to the meals at the Dining Hall. It’s all fresh, cooked throughout the day. The roast beef on Saturday, for instance, will be carved as the customers come in. And just what is this year’s menu? Well, tea, coffee and juice will be available at every meal. Lunch this Thursday, Sept. 19 (11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.) will feature Shepherd’s Pie with side dishes of homemade baked beans, Caesar salad, rolls and butter, a pickle tray and a dessert of assorted homemade pies or squares. All for $10 per person. This is the slowest day at the Dining Hall for the church, with about 100 expected to be served. But Ms. Bartley points out that many of the diners are the judges who are assessing the entries in the Fair that day. She says that these judges are usually up early in the day to travel to the Fair and then, after some focused judging, they are ready for a hearty farmer’s dinner at lunch. That’s why Shepherd’s Pie is the main course, as it is a hearty meal with lots of meat and potatoes involved. Lunch this Friday, Sept. 20 (11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.) will see ham and baked macaroni and cheese as the main course, with side dishes of coleslaw, homemade baked beans, a pickle tray, sliced tomatoes and cucumbers and rolls and butter, with a dessert of assorted homemade pies or squares. All this will be provided for only $12 per person. There is also the option of getting just a slice of pie or square with tea or coffee for only $5. Dinner this Friday, Sept. 20 (5 p.m. to 7 p.m.) will feature ham and scalloped potatoes with side dishes of corn, coleslaw, homemade baked beans, a pickle tray, sliced tomatoes and cucumbers and rolls and butter, with assorted homemade pies or squares for dessert. This will be offered for $15 per person. Lunch this Saturday, Sept. 21 (11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.) will have a main course of a hot roast beef sand-

There is also the snack option of a slice of pie or a square with tea or coffee for $5. Dinner this Saturday, Sept. 21 (5 p.m. to 7 p.m.) will feature a main course of roast beef with gravy and horse radish, served with side dishes of peas and carrots, mashed potatoes, coleslaw, homemade baked beans, a pickle tray, sliced tomatoes and cucumbers and rolls and butter, with a dessert of assorted homemade pies or squares. There is also the option of a slice of pie, cake or square with tea or coffee for $5. The Agricultural Society sets the prices for the Dining Hall meals. All of this food, which will be used to serve over 800 people by the end of the three days, means a lot of shopping. “The shopping for 800 people is a major event,” Ms. Bartley says, noting that it involves visiting a lot of

stores in order to get the best prices. She still has the shopping list from 2009, the last time that St. John’s Anglican Church served the meals at the Dining Hall at Fair time, but the menu changes and the shopping remains challenging. The freshest and best quality food is always sought. While the church uses paper plates for the meals in keeping with its belief in environmental stewardship, there is still lots of washing to do in the kitchen. There are utensils and plenty of pots and pans. Indeed, some of the pots are big ones with lots of scrubbing required to clean them. And just like on the Wednesday night before the Fair when a contingent of parishioners gets together to transport everything to the Dining Hall such as the pots and pans, potato peelers and, yes, even a stopper for the sink, Saturday night after the last meal is served means a similar effort, taking everything back to the church and then cleaning up the Dining Hall premises so that it is spic and span for the caterer on Sunday. Doing this on Saturday after serving close to 500 meals that day is a test of stamina.

Dessert on all three days includes homemade pies and this in itself is the result of a lot of effort and coordination. The church held what could be considered an old fashioned pie bee on Saturday, Aug. 24 where an assembly line format involving pastry, rolling out the pastry, filling the pie and topping the pie saw 150 pies of every variety created in a four hour time span. These pies were then frozen and will be cooked just before Fair time. In addition, numerous other pies that cannot be frozen, such as lemon meringue pie, will be cooked by parishioners at the last minute. This pie making bee was not the only gathering of parishioners before the Fair. On Saturday, Sept. 7, Ottawa Public Health personnel involved with safe food handling hosted a refresher course in the St. John’s Anglican Church parish hall on the proper handling of food in a Dining Hall-type situation. This session makes sure that those working at the Dining Hall preparing and serving the meals are aware of all of the health and safety requirements involved.

Richmond Fair’s history goes back to 1844 John Curry

News - The annual Richmond Fair traces its roots back to 1844 when the County of Carleton Agricultural Society was organized, with the Honourable James Skead as first president. These first fairs or exhibitions were held at Bells Corners, with a fairgrounds having buildings developed over the years. It was doing quite well until the Central Canada Exhibition began at Lansdowne Park in Ottawa in 1888. Attendance at the Bells Corners site dipped, while the Central Canada Exhibition prospered. This brought about a decision to move this county fair from Bells Corners to Richmond to the presentday location which was then known as Goodwood Park, owned by Hugh Rielly of the nearby Rielly House hotel, who rented the Goodwood Park annually for the Fair days. Despite rainy weather, something which would become a tradition regarding the Richmond Fair, this first Fair in Richmond drew a great crowd and its tenure in Richmond looked rosy. Structures on the fairgrounds in these early years in Richmond included the Agricultural building which was torn down in 1979 to make way for the new Richmond Curling Club building; a grandstand

and band shell; a show ring; a race track; a secretary’s office; and a dining hall. Horse barns, slope-roofed structures, were built in a continuous line from the rear of the present arena northward to the current gateway entrance along the Huntley Road. The pig and sheep building was located near where the present “Old McDonald Farm” building stands today. Attendance at the Richmond Fair had been dwindling in the early years of this century, and by 1919, things did not look so good for the Fair, which had become largely a local rather than county attraction. However, the Richmond Fair then became the location for the finals of school fairs from across Carleton County. This brought back the crowds, and by 1927, the Agricultural Society was able to purchase the 17 acre fairgrounds from Hugh Rielly for $2500. Later, new stables were built at the rear of the fairgrounds. A new grandstand, erected in 1934, was destroyed by fire in 1973. In 1944, the 100th anniversary of the Agricultural Society was held, with the Honourable George Dunbar, a native of Richmond, opening the Fair and dedicating a cairn and flagpole at the front of the fairgrounds. Cement block ticket offices at the

walk-in and drive-in entrances on Perth Street were erected to commemorate this 100th anniversary. One of these cement block gatehouses was removed in the early 1980s, while the second one was removed in 1990. In 1949, the Honourable George Dunbar was present in Richmond again, this time to turn the sod at the site of the new $50,000 Richmond Memorial Community Centre building. This new building, which included a hockey rink and an auditorium, stood on land donated by the County of Carleton Agricultural Society in return for the use of the building on Fair days. On September 1, 1950, the Richmond Memorial Community Centre, built in honour of Richmond’s heroes killed in two World Wars, was opened at a ceremony attended by the Honourable George Dunbar. In 1950-51, the old Town Hall was purchased by the Agricultural Society and moved across Perth Street to serve as a new dining hall. In this move, the lower floor of the two-storey building was removed. In 1957, the 4-H Club building was erected on the fairgrounds. From 1960 until 1980, this building was also the home of the Richmond Curling Club. In 1962, the Society purchased an adjoining 2.4 acres from Harold

Brown for $2,000. On September 21, 1962, an historical plaque commemorating the Richmond military settlement was unveiled on the fairgrounds. In 1973, the name of the Agricultural Society was changed from the County of Carleton Agricultural Society to the Richmond Agricultural Society. In 1974, the old Richmond Memorial Community Centre was demolished and replaced by the current Richmond arena and community centre. In 1977, new bleacher seats to accommodate 500 people were purchased in lieu of rebuilding the grandstand. These seats could be moved around the fairgrounds to accommodate the crowd watching the action in several show rings. After the 1979 Fair, the Agricultural Hall, which had stood on its site for 84 years, was demolished to make way for a new Curling Club building. The Curling Club building is used for exhibits and displays during Fair days. In 1983, the Richmond Agricultural Society erected a new 60 foot by 120 foot barn on the fairgrounds. Two of the old barns were torn down to make room for this new barn. In 1989, the Agricultural Society installed new chain link fencing at the north end of the fairgrounds. In 1990, a new sign and gate proclaiming the Richmond Fair was erected at the main entrance to the fairgrounds. This was when the second gatehouse at this entrance was removed. 1990 was the first year for the Farm Experience tent at the Fair. This is where displays of livestock, grain and forage crops and demonstrations, such as sheep shearing, take place. 1990 was also the first year for the holding of a demolition derby at the Richmond Fair. This has remained one of the most popular events at the Fair right up to the present. 1990 also was the first year for the holding of a Richmond Fair draw, with weekly early bird draws leading up to the Fair. This raffle draw continues today. 1991 was the first year that parking

for the general public was prohibited on the fairgrounds itself. Public parking was provided both east and west of the fairgrounds. 1993 was the first year for a lawn garden tractor and ATV pull at the fairgrounds. After the Fair in 1993, tile drainage was installed at the fairgrounds to help dry up the fairgrounds after wet weather. In 1994, a plaque commemorating 150 years of the Fair was unveiled as was a new logo for the Fair, designed by Heather Whitbread. In 1995, new washrooms were built at the Dining Hall building. In 1997, a new heavy horse ring was constructed, which was later followed by a new western horse show ring. A highlight of the 2004 Richmond Fair was the appearance and performance of the world-famous Royal Canadian Mounted Police musical ride. The year 2005 saw the construction of a new 40 foot by 120 foot barn at the Richmond fairgrounds. The new barn was built west of the existing barns, near the intersection of the roadway leading in from the Huntley Road which runs in front of the existing barns and the roadway that runs along the west side of the light horse show ring. The barn was built for the use of both light horse show exhibitors and sheep exhibitors. The construction of this new barn was a first step by the Richmond Agricultural Society to improve the situation regarding the barns on the fairgrounds. Stalls were added to this new barn in time for the 2006 Richmond Fair. In 2006, the city of Ottawa approved giving a surplus fire tanker truck to the Richmond Agricultural Society. The fire tanker truck was a 1974 International Harvester tanker unit that was being replaced as part of the Ottawa Fire Services Fleet Replacement Program. The 32 year old vehicle was originally purchased by the former township of Goulbourn. See RICHMOND FAIR, page 11

Richmond Fair and its changes in recent years Continued from page 10

The Richmond Agricultural Society was planning to use the tanker truck for dust control purposes at the annual Richmond Fair and for other events held at the Richmond fairgrounds. The year 2006 has also seen a major change not to the fairgrounds but to Perth Street running in front of the fairgrounds. A major reconstruction and rehabilitation of the street undertaken

by the city of Ottawa has meant new pavement, new curbs and new sidewalks. It has also resulted in erection of a brand new fence across the Perth Street frontage of the fairgrounds. New Year’s Day in 2007 saw the inauguration of a “New Year’s Day Warm Up� at the Richmond fairgrounds, hosted by the Richmond Agricultural Society and sponsored by D.B. Sparling Cartage Ltd. The event featured

while also expanding and contracting with the steel roofing. The Agricultural Society is also looking at taking steps to repaint this roof since its paint is peeling after just three years. This painting was done before the 2009 Fair. The Agricultural Society uses this old curling club building for commercial exhibits at Fair time as well as for storage purposes for the rest of the year. The front of the building is used as the Fair office. 2008 also saw a new announcer’s booth for the cattle ring thanks to the construction efforts of students at South Carleton High School in Richmond. The new booth was not completely finished for the 2008 Fair but it was used anyway. After the Fair, it was returned to South Carleton High School so that students could complete the project. SCHS students also previously constructed one of the wagons which are used to transport seniors around the grounds at Fair time. The 2008 Fair also saw the Agricultural Society combine the heavy horse and light horse show rings into one big ring for the heavy horse hitch classes, particularly the six horse hitches. This practice continued for the 2009 Fair, with a record number of six horse hitches, 12 in all, participating. The 2009 Fair, which enjoyed sunny conditions throughout and broke the attendance record set just the year before, saw a newly designed sign at the main entrance between the arena and Dining Hall. The 2009 Fair was also the first one at which the Richmond Agricultural Society received permission from the city of Ottawa to have Fair parking on the Saturday and Sunday at the adjacent Richmond Lions Park. An admission gate was set up in the northwest corner of the fairgrounds for convenient access to the Fair by those parking at Lions Park. Fair parking was also available on the east side of Huntley Road in the developing King’s Grant area. However, with new streets under construction, this would be the last year that the area would be available for Fair parking. The 2009 Fair saw record entries in the sheep show as well as in the Demolition Derby whose popularity continues to grow each year.

free sleigh rides with refreshments such as hot cider and hot chocolate available. The year 2006 also saw the continued growth of the Fair’s miniature horse show, making it probably the largest such show in Eastern Ontario. The Richmond Fair was the first fair in the area to hold a miniature horse show, inaugurating it in 2001. In 2007, just before the Fair, new windows were installed in the Dining Hall at the Richmond fairgrounds. Late in 2007, the Richmond Agricultural Society began the removal of the old heavy horse stable located immediately north of the newer and larger show barn on the fairgrounds. The barn had been used for the stabling of heavy horses in recent years but it was not used at all for that purpose at the 2007 Fair. This was because the show barn, which was completely fitted with stalls, was able to accommodate up to 85 heavy horses. The barn, which was roughly 30 feet wide by 100 feet long, was leaning badly in recent years and was dark inside, making it difficult to use for heavy horse exhibitors. The old barn was taken down in stages, with the work going into 2008, with the tin removed from the exterior walls first. Then the old stalls were removed and the upper part of the barn was intentionally collapsed. The space that this old barn was occupying at the fairgrounds was used for the parking of horse trailers during the 2008 Fair. The removal of this old heavy horse stable still leave three older barns on the fairgrounds, along with the newer and larger show barn and the new barn erected in 2005. The year 2008 also saw the northern area of the fairgrounds dug up so that a sewer line could be extended from Huntley Road through the fairgrounds to serve the new Hyde Park development west of the fairgrounds. This work extended through several months in the late winter and spring. The Agricultural Society also took action to prevent severe leaking which had been occurring in the old curling club building. The round steel roof had its joints covered with an expandable material meant to prevent the leaks


Gerd Lohmann, president of the Richmond Agricultural Society, is at the main gate to the Richmond fairgrounds on Perth Street in Richmond, ready to welcome Fair-goers to this year’s annual Richmond Fair which begins this Thursday, Sept. 19 and runs through to this Sunday, Sept. 22.

‘Show and Tell’ and BBQ with NASCAR stock car John Curry

News - It’s a unique “Show and Tell” presentation that ends with a “donut” that you don’t eat. But you can eat at a follow-up BBQ. And it’s all part of a fundraiser that can raise lots of money, in this case for A. Lorne Cassidy Elementary School in Stittsville. This is happening thanks to Stittsville Sobeys and its partnership with Canadian stock car racing driver DJ Kennington in its “Fuel for Kids” fundraiser program. Stittsville Sobeys has part-

nered with A. Lorne Cassidy Elementary School to host a “Fuel for Kids” fundraiser on Friday, Sept. 27 and Saturday, Sept. 28. This program has been operating in community all across Ontario for the past seven years, raising over $150,000 in total for local elementary schools. Here’s how it will work: On Friday, Sept. 27, stock car racing driver DJ Kennington, who competes in the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series, will be at the school to present a unique “Show and Tell” session which takes the form of an educational talk

about the various safety elements involved both in what he wears as a driver as well as what is designed into his race car. Following the “Show and Tell” presentation, students can assemble outside where DJ Kennington will do a final “donut” goodbye in his #17 Castrol Edge/Sobeys race car. It’s always a hit with the students. But this is not the last that A. Lorne Cassidy students, their parents and indeed others in the community will see of DJ Kennington, his race car and his race crew.

On the next day, Saturday, Sept. 28, they will be at Stittsville Sobeys at the Stittsville Corners shopping area at the corner of Hazeldean Road and Carp Road where they will be joined by parent volunteers and Sobeys staff for a fundraising BBQ, running from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., with all of the proceeds going to the school. There will be hot dogs, juice boxes and water available, plus a few other snacks. Prices will range from $2 to $4 depending on what is ordered. But all the food and BBQ items are being donated by Stittsville Sobeys, so that

every dollar raised will go to the school. Besides attending the BBQ, you will be able to get a close up look at DJ Kennington’s NASCAR stock car. DJ himself will be on hand at the BBQ, signing autographs and giving youngsters (and perhaps some not so young) a chance to hop into his Castrol/ Sobeys sponsored NASCAR stock car. DJ Kennington, who was born in St. Thomas, Ontario in 1977, was the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series champion in both 2010 and 2012. In 2008, he was honoured as

the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series most popular driver. He has participated in over 150 NASCAR Canadian Tire Series races over the past 12 years.

News - Mayor Jim Watson refused to escalate a heated exchange of words with Eugene Melnyk after the Senators owner vented his casino frustrations on a Toronto radio show last week. Melnyk took to the airwaves on FAN580 to complain about city council’s decision to take his site at the Canadian Tire Centre out of the running for a new casino in Ottawa. He blamed Watson for ensuring the Rideau Carleton Raceway was the only option for more gambling in Ottawa and said the mayor acts like he’s from another planet. Watson brushed off the comments, repeating that the casino issue is not his priority and he expects the city will continue to have a working relationship with the NHL team. “Mr. Melnyk is entitled to his opinion. I don’t happen to share his point of view on what he talked about,” Watson said. “His priority is a casino and my priority is not a casino.” Watson pointed out a bus-only off-ramp to the Canadian Tire Centre – which cost the city and province $750,000 – will open later this year to make it easier for people to take transit to the arena. “I continue to remain very optimistic that we have a good working relationship and the proof’s in the pudding,” Watson said. The radio interview followed the resignation of Senators president Cyril Leeder from the boards of four local groups, including the committee to plan Canada’s 150th birthday bash in Ottawa in 2017. “Cyril has been a great contributor to so many different causes,” Watson said. “But like anyone, including myself, everyone is replaceable. While we’ll miss his input and his sage advice, that’s his decision or Mr. Melnyk’s decision and we’ll live with that and we’ll move on. We’ve got a lot of talented people that will continue to get involved in all the activities that are important to growing our city.”

My sister Shannon suffered from a congenital heart disease, a condition that made it difficult for her to eat, breathe or move. She was so fragile that she spent the entire first year of her life at CHEO, so I ended up spending my days at the hospital with my parents and my sister. CHEO became my second home: it was where my family and I spent most of our time, where my sister went to preschool and where I made friends.

B M E V O N , Y A D I R F

I remember that the staff at CHEO always made time for me whether it was by saying hello, giving me a hug or taking me to the playroom, while my sister underwent various procedures. The nurses, especially, were my heroes; it was their caring words and gentle touch that carried my family through some very difficult days.


Unfortunately, two weeks before her fourth birthday, Shannon passed away. Her strength and resilience throughout her illness were exceptional and she always had a smile for me.

But, lottery organizers are excited to introduce an incredible addition to the lottery

At three months of age, Ava was admitted to CHEO where she was diagnosed with failure to thrive, severe acid reflux and several food allergies. Failure to thrive is a condition that can have serious repercussions on a child’s stature, emotional and behavioral development. Ava required a hypoallergenic formula via continuous nasogastric feeds (a feeding tube placed in the nose) and a few medications to help settle her stomach. After a five week stay at CHEO, she was transitioned to thickened bottles and we were finally able to bring her home. Following her discharge, Ava continued to thrive with outpatient support from CHEO, and although she was smaller than most kids her age, she seemed to be on the upswing.

But one morning I found Ava sweating, trembling and difficult to arouse. That day Ava had the first of a few ambulance rides back to CHEO where she was recently diagnosed with ketotic hypoglycemia, a rare but serious form of Little did I know then that my husband and I would return to CHEO once we became parents. low blood sugar. Our daughter Ava was born prematurely and Despite all of these challenges, and with jaundiced, but looked like a happy, healthy baby. continued support from CHEO, Ava has grown into the sweet, smart and high-spirited threeyear-old girl she is now.

The nurses, especially, were my heroes; it was their caring words and gentle touch that carried my family through some very difficult days.

In order for CHEO to thrive and grow with us, they need financial support from our community. Please help support CHEO so that they can continue to change lives… as they did mine. Sincerely, Trina Ryan RN, BScN, DSW, MOM

Several years later, inspired by the amazing nursing staff at CHEO, I became a nurse—and funnily, as part of my training in the Bachelor of Nursing, I worked on the same unit where my sister had been treated.

Unfortunately, once at home we noticed that something was wrong. Ava would have projectile vomiting after every single feed. No experience or education could have prepared us for the stress associated with having a sick child.

Kurtis Schaefer of Stittsville, who plays for the Bell Warriors bantam football team, has been named as the National Capital Amateur Football Association’s Player of the Week.

of Richmond, playing for the Bell Warriors bantams, was both the Offensive Player of the Week and the Overall Player of the Week. Andrew Beattie of Richmond, also a player with the Bell Wariors bantams, was the Defensive Player of the Week. This week Kurtis Schaefer of the Bell Warriors bantams received the Overall Player of the Week honours. He is the team’s defensive captain and by his example he inspired the team’s comeback from a 14-0 half time deficit to a 35-14 victory over the Nepean Redskins. This brought the team’s record for the season to two wins and one loss. In the game, Kurtis Schaefer was one of the Warriors leading tacklers while also forcing two fumbles and recovering one fumble. This Player of the Week designation is something new for the NCAFA this season. It comes about as a result of a new video service by NCAF Films which provides NCAFA game and player highlights on the website One of its features is a weekly vote for selection of Player of the Week as well as Offensive and Defensive Players of the Week. NCAF Films and its website www.ncafa. tv is already becoming quite popular among those involved in the local football community. NCAF Films co-founder is Jesse Card who is a Bell Warrior alumni. The Bell Warriors Football Club, in existence since 1955, offers football programs for boys and girls between the ages of 8 and 16 in the communities of Stittsville, Munster, Richmond, Goulbourn, Bells Corners, Bayshore and Britannia.

Stittsville Royals open season with two straight wins John Curry

Sports - The Stittsville Royals have gotten off to an undefeated start in Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League play. The Royals chalked up victories on both Saturday and Sunday last weekend to emerge in first place in the Valley Division of the league after the opening weekend of play. The Royals have four points thanks to the team’s two victories. The Renfrew Timberwolves are second with a win and an overtime loss, good for three points, followed by the Almonte Thunder with a loss and a shootout loss against the Royals. The other three teams in the Valley Division, the Shawville Pontiacs, Arnprior Packers and Perth Blue

Wings, have all yet to post a win in early season action. Last Sunday afternoon at the Goulbourn Recreation Complex in Stittsville, the game went to a shootout but the Royals ended up on the winning side of the 6-5 final score thanks to a shootout goal by Tanner Knight, the only one scored in three-player shootout. Other Royals shooters in the shootout were Jermy Nichols and Ben Wade. The Royals had taken a 3-1 lead after the first period in this game thanks to goals by Alex Bouchey assisted by Eric Malloy; Ryan Daniel assisted by Alex Perrault; and Jesse Renaud on a power play, assisted by Ben Wade and Ryan Daniel. The second period wasn’t a good one for the Royals as the visiting Almonte Thunder roared back with three straight goals to take a 4-3 lead

lected as the game’s second star. While the Almonte Thunder directed 44 shots at the Royals net, the Royals had 38 shots on the Almonte net. This shootout victory over the Almonte Thunder came on the heels of the Royals’ 2-1 win over the Metcalfe Jets in a game played in Arnprior at the league’s opening weekend Showcase event. In this game against the Metcalfe Jets, the Royals scored the only goal of the first period, a power play marker by Ryan Daniel, assisted by Matt Veaudry and Jake Oliver. The Royals stretched their lead to 2-0 with a second period shorthanded goal from Joey Laird, assisted by Blake Martyniuk. The Metcalfe Jets scored early in the third period to make the score 21 but there was no other scoring in

going into the third period. In the third period, the Royals’ Jermy Nichols scored two goals, giving the Royals a 5-4 lead. The first one was a power play marker assisted by Alex Bouchey and Eric Malloy. The second goal was assisted by Kyle Killeen and Joey Laird. However, the Almonte Thunder scored a shorthanded goal with less than two minutes to play in the game to tie it up at 5-5 and force overtime. The overtime period solved nothing, so it was on to the shootout where the Royals prevailed, earning a 6-5 victory. Patrick Kealey in the Royals’ net blocked 39 of 44 shots in the game. His effort earned him the third star of the game. First star of the game was Jermy Nichols while Jesse Renaud was se-

the game, despite the fact that the Jets peppered the Royals net with 18 shots in total in the third period. In this same period the Royals managed only five shots at the Metcalfe goal. Royals goalie Jason Shaw ended up stopping 48 of the 49 shots which Metcalfe directed his way. He earned the game’s first star designation as a result of his performance. Second star of the game was Joey Laird of the Royals while the Royals’ Ryan Daniel earned the third star of the game. The Stittsville Royals play the Ottawa Canadians in a game this Thursday, Sept. 19 at 7:45 p.m. at the RA Centre in Ottawa before returning to the ice at the Goulbourn Recreation Complex in Stittsville this coming Sunday, Sept. 22 for a 2:30 p.m. contest against the visiting Perth Blue Wings.

As reported, the City of Ottawa is currently undertaking a project to transform the intersection of Shea Road and Fernbank Road into a single lane roundabout. As part of this project, Shea Road will be realigned north of Fernbank to enter directly into the intersection. Hydro Ottawa has begun the relocation of new hydro poles at this intersection and this will create an impact on RideauGoulbourn residents temporarily. There are two planned power outages on October 5th; one between 6:00am and 8:00am and another between 6:00pm and 8:00pm. The rain date for this scheduled outage is October 12th. While the outages will occur during these hours, they will only be approximately 15-30 minutes in length. Affected areas include Munster Hamlet, Dwyer Hill (between Copeland Road & Purdy Road and between Dwyer Hill Road and Ashton Station Road), and the area directly around the intersection of Shea Road and Fernbank Road.


News - Bluegrass music once again filled the Gaia Java Coffee Company shop in Stittsville last Friday as the Dusty Strings group returned, this time with renowned fiddler Peter Dawson among its number. And just like at their performance in July, it was an evening at which traditional bluegrass music at its finest prevailed, right from the opening flourish which touched on all of the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s instrumental strengths â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Don Hill on Dobro resonator guitar, Vic Chartrand on banjo and the ageless Peter Dawson on fiddle, all enhanced by Mavis Mason on bass and Bernie Mason on guitar. As one bluegrass song after another flowed from the group, some iconic tunes emerged, such as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Old Love Affair,â&#x20AC;? a song which has been done by a whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s who of country music such as Dottie West, Hank Sonw, Ernest Tubb (the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Texas Troubadour who is known as one of the pioneers of country music), Hank Thompson and Ferlin Husky. And then there was â&#x20AC;&#x153;Old Flame,â&#x20AC;? which the group Alabama recorded in 1981 and was its third number one single on the country music charts. Then there was â&#x20AC;?Cabin On The Hill,â&#x20AC;? a tune that was played by guitarist Lester Flatt and banjo player Earl Scruggs, the pair who founded the famous â&#x20AC;&#x153;Foggy Mountain Boysâ&#x20AC;? bluegrass band that went on to become on of the premier bluegrass music groups in the history of the genre. And you know that anything associated with Earl Scruggs has to

be bluegrass gold. He did not become the most influential player of bluegrass banjo music who ever lived without good reason. Indeed, his innovative three finger picking style has become the standard for bluegrass banjo player. Those who played in the Dusty Strings group at the Friday music evening at the Gaia Java shop in Stittsville last Friday included Vic Chartrand on banjo and mandolin; fiddle legend Peter Dawson; Don Hill on Dobro guitar, an instrument that Bernie Mason says looks like it has a 1974 Studebaker hub cap adorning it; Mavis Mason with her bass, the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest instrument played by its physically smallest member; and Bernie Mason on guitar and also vocals, a function that he shares with his wife Mavis. Mavis revealed at this performance that it was in 1979 that her husband Bernie discovered bluegrass music while listening to the radio and more specifically country music singer Ralph Carlson. There was a capacity crowd at the Gaia Java Coffee Company shop for last Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s performance by the Dusty Strings. This Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s music evening at the Gaia Java Coffee Company shop at the Stittsville Shopping Centre (Shoppers Drug Mart plaza) on Stittsville Main Street will feature performer Jon â&#x20AC;&#x153;jkstrawâ&#x20AC;? Whittington. These Friday music evenings are free and open to everyone. These Friday music evenings start at 7 p.m., although people are advised to arrive early in order to get the best seating.

September 16th, 2013 1518 STITTSVILLE MAIN STREET Stittsville lost a significant piece of its history this past week. The old Bradley building at 1518 Stittsville Main Street was succumbed by fire in the early afternoon of September 9th. Fortunately no one was injured in this event. Fire officials did have to keep the Main Street between Abbott and Orville Street closed overnight and part of Tuesday to ensure that the stability of the remainder of the building would not pose any danger to both pedestrians and vehicle traffic passing in the area. Investigators from the Ontario Fire Marshallâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office and the Ottawa Fire Services have completed their investigation of the fire at 1518 Main Street. Investigators have been able to determine that the fire was caused by an electrical failure in the South West corner of the attic. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all City of Ottawa emergency and support services that made this unfortunate turn of events more manageable for the community. I want to first and foremost thank the Ottawa Fire services and their team of firefighters. It was unfortunate that there was damage to the historical building but I am very relieved that the team of firefighters was able to ensure that no one was hurt in the process, lives were saved and the building damage was kept to a minimum. I also wanted to thank Ottawa Police Services for a prompt and professional response in ensuring public safety for the surrounding community. Additional applause goes out to the Ottawa Paramedics, for providing proper care and support to residents as well as other emergency responders.

Sports - Six straight victories. Spectacular. A come-from behind, down to the last out, victory to advance to semi-ďŹ nal action. Thrilling. Winning the gold medal and provincial championship. Priceless. This was the story of the Stittsville Selects Bantam A Girls Strikers softball team and the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s play at the Provincial Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Softball Association Selects Provincial Championship on Saturday, Aug. 24 and Sunday, Aug. 25 in Vaughan, Ontario. The Strikers went undefeated in six games, capping it off with a 10-5 victory in the gold medal game against Oakville. In this championship ďŹ nal game, it was 2-2 after four innings but then the Strikers pulled ahead and Oakville never caught up, with Stittsville winning by a 10-5 score and capturing the gold medal emblematic of the provincial championship. The Stittsville Strikers had begun the tournament on the Saturday with victories over Mississauga Southwest 13-10, Orangeville 15-0 and Missis-

sauga Majors 9-5. The Strikersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; ďŹ rst game on the Sunday against Brampton was a real nail biter, with Stittsville down by one run with two out in the ďŹ nal inning. Brampton was leading by one run in the ďŹ nal inning, with Stittsville faced with two outs. But then there was a Strikers triple followed by a double to score the tying run. The Strikers runner on second advanced to third on a wild pitch and then a hard single through the inďŹ eld brought in the runner for the victory and a trip to the semi-ďŹ nals. In this semi-ďŹ nal game, the Stittsville Strikers faced off against a sister team, the Stittsville Royals, with the Strikers winning to advance to the championship ďŹ nal against the Oakville team. The coaches and parents associated with the Stittsville Strikers were proud of the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s effort and play throughout the tournament, not only because of its high caliber but also because the players showed excellent sportsmanship as well as pride and determination.

Stittsville 56ers capture provincial title lan, Spencer Lee and Lu dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Entremont which got the 56ers going at the plate. A two run homer by Riley Walsh as well as consistent hitting throughout the game led to the victory. MVP of the game went to Luc dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Entremont who pitched all seven innings for the 56ers. St. Catherines was the next opponent for the 56ers. Earlier in the summer, St. Catherines had beaten the 56ers so the 56ers were determined to win this rematch. And win it they did! The Stittsville bats were on fire in this game as the 56ers coasted to a 22-0 victory in a shortened five inning game. And what offense! A two run double by Jon Assad; a two run triple by Russ McFall; a three run homer by Riley Walsh; and a grand slam by James Mullan. It was a superb offensive display. And backing up this offense was strong pitching and defense. Pitcher Luc dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Entremont earned eight strikeouts on the mound while Matt Pavia, Braden McGinnis and Jimmy Tokaryk all backed him up with strong defensive play in the field. The gameâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s MVP award went to James Mullan with his six RBIâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in the match. The 56ers then went on to complete their round robin play with a game against the Perth Road team from the Kingston area. The 56ers scored six runs early in the game and lead throughout the match, chalking up a 15-7 victory. Matt Pavia, James Mullan, Russ McFall and Jeff Heika all slammed doubles while Braden McGinnis had a triple. The game ended with a double

This re-scheduling of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jump Into Fallâ&#x20AC;? horse show last Saturday at Westar Farms was the third time that bad weather had adversely affected this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s horse shows at the farm. At the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Horse Loversâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Weekendâ&#x20AC;? on Saturday, July 20 and Sunday, July 21, rain wiped out all of the action on the Saturday. A storm on Friday, July 19 had drenched the grounds, making any equestrian competition on the Saturday impossible. So the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Horse Loversâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Weekendâ&#x20AC;? became a one day event rather than its traditional two day schedule.

News - The â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jump Into Fallâ&#x20AC;? horse show scheduled for Westar Farms last Saturday did not happen. The recent rainy weather forced Westar Farms to postpone the show due to wet grounds. It was initially going to be postponed just one day, namely to last Sunday, assuming that things had dried up enough. But by Friday afternoon, it became apparent that it would not be possible to host a horse show at Westar Farms anytime this past weekend due to the wet conditions. So, a new date has bee set for this â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jump Into Fallâ&#x20AC;? horse show, namely Saturday, Sept. 28. This promises to be a big day at Westar Farms, not only because of the re-scheduled horse show but also because that is the evening for Westar Farmsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 25th anniversary party. So, instead of just being a great evening of celebration and entertainment marking Westarâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 25 years in business, it will now be an all-day event with a full day of horse showing followed

The 56ers won the gold medal in the provincial tournament in Unionville by going undefeated, winning all three games in the round robin portion of the tournament and then going on to defeated the host team, Unionville, in the championship final on Saturday, Aug. 17. Unionville was also undefeated going into the championship final, so you knew that it was going to be a closely fought game. And it was but the 56ers were in the lead for the whole game and thanks to a great team effort on the field and good hitting from the whole lineup, the Stittsville 56ers emerged with a 7-4 victory and the provincial championship.

Tomlinson Group’s Red Army

By Tracey Tong

By Tracey Tong

The event raised more than $2 million for cancer research earlier this month, making headlines across the city.

For the Tomlinson Group’s Red Army, it was a red letter day in the name of cancer research. The fundraising team was the second-largest in the fourth annual Ride the Rideau, Eastern Ontario’s most successful single-day cancer fundraiser. The event, which debuted a 50 km distance in addition to the 100 km flagship distance this year, raised an incredible $2,049,522 for cancer research at the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute.

Robert Noseworthy was one of these people. The two-time cancer survivor was only 30 years old when he was first diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Years later, he was diagnosed with merkel cell carcinoma and was treated at The Ottawa Hospital.

This brings The Ottawa Hospital Foundation’s signature fundraising event’s four-year fundraising total to over $6.45 million. Funds raised support cancer research, including the development of personalized therapies for cancer patients and clinical trials.

Riding at annual Sunday School Picnic John Curry

News - “Pumpkin” and “Yoyo” were among the stars of the show at the annual Sunday School Picnic and Family BBQ at the Stittsville United Pentecostal Church last Sunday, Sept. 15. Both were kept busy during the three-hour event, giving rides to the youngsters. That’s because “Pumpkin” is a pony and “Yoyo” is a donkey, both from the Big Sky Ranch Animal Sanctuary at Kemptville. They were all saddled up and available to be ridden, with handlers from Big Sky Ranch on hand to lead “Pumpkin” and “Yoyo” with their riders around in a giant circle, while also helping them mount and dismount from the saddle.

Big Sky Ranch Animal Sanctuary brought more than just “Pumpkin” and “Yoyo” to this Sunday School Picnic and Family BBQ. There was also a collection of animals which were kept in pens but which those at the event could pet and, more importantly, at least for the animals, feed. Big Sky Ranch had little paper cups filled with appropriate feed for the animals who would eat the feed right out of the hand of a youngster. Among the animals were a llama, a sheep, a goat and a small pony. But these pony and donkey rides and the petting zoo were only part of the attractions at this year’s Sunday School Picnic and Family BBQ. There was a inflated giant slide as well as an inflated bounce with the outward appearance of a merry-go-round.

There were games like a bean bag toss and a tunnel to crawl through. There were also some giant toys on hand with which youngsters could play. An Ottawa Fire Services pumper truck from Station 81 in Stittsville was at the event, with firefighters on hand to provide youngsters with a tour of the truck. And what youngster doesn’t love seeing a fire truck up close! The event also had a BBQ.

Big Sky Ranch Animal Sancutary in Kempville is a non-profit organization that offers a safe haven to farm and domestic animals in crisis, either from abuse, neglect, abandonment or surrender by owners no longer able to care for them. The Stittsville United Pentecostal Church is located on Stittsville Main Street at the Flewellyn Road intersection at Stanley’s Corners, just south of Stittsville.

Two teen heart throbs are performing at Fair John Curry

News - Two young singers that are making an impact on the music market, especially among teens, will be performing at the Richmond Fair this year. Carleton Place’s Jordan McIntosh and Perth’s Henry Norwood will both be performing in a “Young Country Evening” on the outdoor stage at the Richmond Fair this Saturday, Sept. 21, with the show running from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. Jordan McIntosh has burst onto the music scene with his debut single “Walk Away” and continues to wow audiences with his performances. Besides performing at the Richmond Fair, Jordan will be playing at the Metcalfe Fair

Jordan McIntosh

this fall as well. He is also scheduled to be one of those appearing at the Ottawa Valley Country Music Hall of Fame 2013 Awards Show at Centrepointe Theatre in Nepean on Sunday, Sept. 29. He has performed in many contests and showcases including the Stars on the Rise event, perfecting his style while developing a fan base. He is seen in as an up-and-coming one-in-a-million talent. He drew his early inspiration from singers such as Carrie Underwood and Mariah Carey while now his musical offerings are shaped by such singers as Luke Bryan, Johnny Reid, Taylor Swift and Jason Aldean. “My music offers a male perspective on what someone like Taylor Swift might write about,” Jordan writes on his website. This means singing more about relationships and the problems arising from them than singing about the typical male song themes of parties and the work day. Henry Norwood, 14, of Perth has emerged on the wider scene quickly although he has been performing on stage in the Perth and Ottawa Valley areas since he was 11 years old. Henry plays mainly traditional country music, although he has written his initial original song, “Another Battle Another Day.” Indeed, he sang this song as a contestant on the recent “Searchlight” talent search on CBC radio. At age 14, he was the youngest contender to make it to the top eight in this talent search. The outdoor stage at the Richmond fairgrounds is also going to be the site for the Fair’s youth amateur talent competition on Sunday, Sept. 22 starting at 12 noon. You’ll be able to enjoy lots of entertainment at this youth amateur talent event as there are at least 45 entries in the competition.

lowfield Road in Fallowfield.

Introductory evening for Alpha course in Stittsville Special to the News

News - The Alpha course, which has been taken by over nine million people around the world, is going to be offered in Stittsville. And while the Alpha course is designed for everyone, from those with no faith to those wanting to learn more about their faith, you may wonder whether it is something that you would enjoy or not. That’s why there’s going to be an introductory evening offered, after which you can decide to sign up for the ten week course or not. This introduction to Alpha along with a free dinner will take place on Wednesday, Oct. 2 at St. Thomas Anglican Church at the corner of Stittsville Main Street and Carleton Cathcart Street in Stittsville. The introduction to Alpha will explore the topic “Is Christianity Boring, Untrue, and Irrelevant???” At the end of this introductory evening, people who choose to do so will have the opportunity to sign up for the ten week course which begins the following Wednesday, Oct. 9. It must be noted that there is no cost to take the Alpha course. However, participants are invited to make a small contribution towards the meal which is held at the beginning of every session in the course. The Alpha course is meant to provide a relaxed and friendly setting in which to explore the meaning of life and other similarly important questions. And while it is meant to be a practical introduction to the basics of Christianity with lots of opportunity for discussion and

debate, Alpha is a course designed for everyone – from non-Christians curious about whether there is a God to people who may attend church but who have never really felt that they understood the basics of their faith to those who are interested in learning more about their faith. It is a course for people from all backgrounds, religions and viewpoints. Alpha takes place one evening a week for ten weeks, including a Friday evening and a Saturday halfway through the course. Each session begins with a meal which is a good opportunity for participants to get to know each other. After the dinner, there is always a talk on such topics as “Who Is Jesus?”, “How Does God Guide Us?” and “Does Jesus Still Heal Today?’ The talk is followed by small group discussions where issues raised in the talk can be explored in an atmosphere where everyone’s opinion is heard and welcomed. Comments and questions are encouraged. And what’s the result for those who have completed the ten week course? Some comments that have been recorded are “I was astonished at how much I enjoyed myself,” “I really appreciated the opportunity to ask questions and not feel like I was getting a hard-sell pitched at me,” and “When I first went to Alpha I was pretty nervous…by the third Alpha evening, I could hardly wait until the next week.” To find out more about this Alpha course coming up in Stittsville or to reserve a place at the introductory dinner on Wednesday, Oct. 2, please call 613-836-5741.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Better Food For Allâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; John Curry

News - There it is, written in giant letters of different colours, right on a round hay bale at the entrance to Stittsville Sobeys. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Better Food For All.â&#x20AC;? And Stittsville Sobeys is really going to be â&#x20AC;&#x153;making hay,â&#x20AC;? as it were, with this slogan or tagline as it takes part in the launch of a new program in all Sobeys stores in Canada, aimed at encouraging and helping Canadians explore and experience the world of better food. In doing this, Stittsville Sobeys along with all of the other Sobeys banner of stores has partnered with renowned chef and healthy food campaigner Jamie Oliver to show Canadians how to eat better. Tim LaPlante, owner of Stittsville Sobeys, says that the store has just undergone a major re-arrangement so that now the store is offering more fresh food, an enhanced Natural Source section with more products that are virtually free from artiďŹ cial ďŹ&#x201A;avours and preservatives, a revamping of the meat department to now offer CertiďŹ ed Humane chicken, pork and beef, and more organic and gluten free products â&#x20AC;&#x201C; simply, just healthier food choices. Mr. LaPlante makes it clear that Stittsville Sobeys, like all Sobeys stores, is not now a health food store. Rather, it remains a grocery store

BBQ for Chrysalis House John Curry

News - There were tables covered with colourful tablecloths. There were balloons, likewise of many colours. There was a red tent from M&M Meat Shops set up. And those running the event were wearing “Tree of Life” tshirts, again of different colours. Yes, it was a colourful event, this fundraising BBQ for Chrysalis House which took place outside the Shoppers Drug Mart at the corner of Hazeldean Road and Huntmar Drive in Stittsville last Saturday, Sept. 14. Chrysalis House is an emergency shelter serving the area that provides shelter and support to abused women and their children. The barbequed hamburgers available were great, freshly grilled, but there was even more happening than the BBQ itself. There was a 50/50 raffle draw going on and there was even face painting. This BBQ was a kickoff event in the store’s four-week long Tree of Life fundraising campaign in support of women’s health. This is a campaign which involves all Shoppers Drug Mart stores across Canada but while national in scope, it is local insofar as each store chooses JOHN CURRY/METROLAND the charity related to women’s health Wearing “Tree of Life” t-shirts as they staff the fundraising BBQ for Chrysalis House which was held at that it wants to support.

Poet to read at library Special to the News

News - “Imagine Mercy” is poet David Groulx’s sixth book. And now you will be able to hear the poet himself read from “Imagine Mercy” at the Stittsville branch of the Ottawa Public Library on Saturday, Sept. 28 from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. Registration is required for those wishing to attend this free reading. Registration is capped at 15 people but there are still a few remaining spaces available. Registration can be done online at www. under “Programs” or by telephoning 613-836-3381. David Groulx was raised in Elliot Lake in northern Ontario, the son of a French Canadian father and an Ojibwe mother. He is proud of his native and Metis roots as indeed the poetry in his latest book reveals. The website of his publisher, Bookland Press Inc., describes “Imagine Mercy” as “a vibrant poetry collection portraying the daily realities of living as an Aboriginal in Canada.”

The website goes on to describe the book and its poet author as follows: “David Groulx seamlessly weaves the spiritual with the ordinary and the present with the past. He speaks for the spirit, determination and courage of Aboriginal people, compelling readers to confront cruel reality with his honest and inspiring vision. The poems in ‘Imagine Mercy’ portray mixed bloods, resistance, determination, sovereignty and cultural issues that generate sharply divided opinions and deep emotional struggles. Groulx’s poetic power renders an honest and painful perception of modern-day Aboriginal life with a strong voice against prejudice and injustice.” David Groulx attended Lakehead University in Thunder Bay where he received his B.A. and where he won the Munro Poetry Prize. He won the Simon J. Lucas Jr. Memorial Award for poetry at the En’owkin Centre in Penticton, B.C. He was also a co-winner at Harbourfront Centre’s 2011 Poetry NOW competition.

Family-oriented fun event held at Chapel Ridge Church John Curry

News - What do lizards, the Louvin brothers and corn on the cob have in common? How about last Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Old-Fashioned Family Fun Day at the Chapel Ridge Church â&#x20AC;&#x201C; yes, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right, a free family-oriented fun event hosted by the Chapel Ridge Church on Flewellyn Road in Goulbourn east of Stanleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Corners. Lizards were part of the Little Rayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Reptiles presentation which took place at this family fun day. A song associated with the Louvin brothers, an American country music duo comprised of Ira and Charlie Louvin who popularized the close harmony genre of country music, was one of the musical offerings played by the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Richmond Ramblersâ&#x20AC;? in the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stage show entertainment at the event. And corn on the cob was among the food items provided at this family fun day. But, of course, there was more, much more at this event which ran from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at this Flewellyn Road church. It all began with a family workshop celebra-

tion at 10 a.m. which featured a special puppet presentation. Then the focus shifted to the myriad of activities and happenings happening on the grounds. A Little Rayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Reptiles presentation with Brian Oehring of Little Rayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Reptiles holding the interest of an audience of over 80 people, both youngsters and adults, as he showed a variety of reptiles â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a Gecko which is a lizard that can change colours, climb virtually any surface and re-grow its tail; a Hog-nosed snake that is found in Canada; a painted turtle, one of eight kinds of turtles found in Ontario, all of which are considered at risk; a South American lizard that smells with its tongue and has one of the strongest bites of any lizard; and a Jungle Carpet Python, an Australian snake that kills its prey by constriction, which handler Brian Oehring allowed everyone to touch if they wanted. Indeed, the touching hands were apparently appreciated by the snake, warming it up on this JOHN CURRY/METROLAND early fall day which did see the sun at times Seven month old Blakely Miller, left, touches the Jungle Carpet Python snake which is breaking through a bright but overcast sky. being controlled by Brian Oehring, right, of Little Rayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Reptiles during a presentation by

There was an inflated obstacle course and an inflated bouncy castle for the enjoyment of youngsters, many of whom also visited the face painting tent for a Fun Day facial makeover, as it were.

would be a special memento of this Family Fun Day. A balloon clown was on the grounds, making various balloon creations which were a hit with youngsters. There was popcorn and cotton candy as well as a BBQ with hamburgers and hot dogs and a corn roast for that corn on the cob. And while on the subject of food, there was also a “people’s choice” dessert competition. So, you not only got to enjoy a scrumptious dessert but got to let others know that you thought it was good. The Chapel Ridge Church at 5660 Flewellyn Road between Eagleson Road and Shea Road in Goulbourn is an Evangelical Christian church committed to the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Rummage sale Water is key to Richmond splash pad Special to the News

News - A sale of assorted second hand or gently used objects contributed by people to help raise funds. This is the traditional view of what is known as a rummage sale over the years. And there will be such a rummage sale coming up at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church on McBean Street in Richmond. The sale will offer a variety of clothing for men, women and children including

shoes, purses and accessories. There will be also small housewares and home décor items. This rummage sale will take place on Thursday, Sept. 26 from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m.; Friday, Sept. 27 from 12 noon to 6 p.m.; and Saturday, Sept. 28 from 8 a.m. to 12 noon. It’s all happening in the church’s parish hall attached to the rear of the church which is at 3529 McBean Street, just south of Martin Street in Richmond.

News - A splash pad revolves around water and right now it is water that is delaying any advances on establishing a splash pad in Richmond. City of Ottawa Rideau-Goulbourn ward councillor Scott Moffatt, speaking to the matter of a possible splash pad in Richmond at the September meeting of the Board of Directors of the Richmond Village Association, said that the matter is on hold at present until further information comes forward. Specifically, the challenges regarding establishment of a splash pad in the city’s ru-

ral areas deals with water supply. Councillor Moffatt said that the use of a rural communal well or a rural well as the source of water for a splash pad adds more difficulty to the project than a splash pad developed in the area of full urban services. He said that he is working to see if a splash pad can be established using a communal well such as the one which supplies water to the Richmond Glen area of Richmond. He said that there is not a “closed door” on the issue but that it is not an easy problem. Councillor Moffatt said that a splash pad uses a lot of water and so there is a need for

a definite and plentiful source of water such as that provided by the city’s urban piped water system. He said that with a communal well, the supply of water for a splash pad would not be as guaranteed as with one on piped services. He noted that Saunders Farm at Munster has a splash pad which is supplied with water by two wells. He noted, though, that it has requirements for washrooms and change rooms nearby which are not provided with splash pads in city of Ottawa parks. The Richmond Village Association has been discussing a splash pad for the village of Richmond, with Chanonhouse Park as one possible location.

Library to block child pornography Laura Mueller

News - For the first time, the Ottawa Public Library has taken steps to filter its Internet connection to prevent child pornography from being viewed or downloaded. The Ottawa Public Library already filters content viewed by children by using their library cards to block sexual, hateful, violent or gambling-related content, said Jennifer Stirling, the libraryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s manager of technology and innovation. Now, the library is in the process of acquiring software that will prevent child pornography from being viewed on any library computer throughout the city. The filter will extend to the libraryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Wi-Fi network so the illegal material canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be viewed on peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s laptops or other devices. The library has been working with the police this year to conduct safety audits and train staff to ensure incidents in the library branches are properly reported. The addition of a child-porn filter is a direct result of that work, said library board chairwoman Coun. Jan Harder. The filter will only prevent the viewing of illegal child pornography â&#x20AC;&#x201C; not legal porn. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re focused on preventing illegal activity in the library,â&#x20AC;? Stirling said. While some patrons might hope the library blocks all pornographic material from being viewed, restricting access to legal content is not part of the libraryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mandate, she said. The issue is complicated because everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s definition of inappropriate material is different, Harder said. Some people could consider images of breastfeeding to be inappropriate or pornographic, she said.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t control everything thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going on everywhere, but we can do our best to mitigate criminal activity,â&#x20AC;? she said. The Internet filter doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tackle other illegal activity on the libraryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s computers, like â&#x20AC;&#x153;treason,â&#x20AC;? Harder said. The software, which Stirling wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t name because the contract hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been signed, has the capacity to track and log usersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Internet use, but the Ottawa Public Library wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be doing that because it would violate the library boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s public-access policies. The library assists in all police investigations when the proper warrants are provided, Stirling said. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the only time usersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Internet activity on the library network would be disclosed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not planning at this time to log activity,â&#x20AC;? she said. Doing so would go against â&#x20AC;&#x153;library nirvana,â&#x20AC;? Harder said. She emphasized the tracking capabilities would only be used in cases of criminal activity, and even then the police must â&#x20AC;&#x153;jump through hoopsâ&#x20AC;? to get it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a subject thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very touchy in libraries,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the library world, privacy is like a sacred cow.â&#x20AC;? The filter will be used at one undetermined branch as a pilot project starting at the end of September. After the library board receives an update on the initiative in November, Stirling said the hope is to have the filter in use at all library branches in Ottawa before the end of the year. The software is cloud-based so instead of a one-time purchasing fee, the city will pay around $33,000 U.S. a year for access to the filter. The money will come from the libraryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s existing budget, Stirling said.

Yum, yum - a cake sale! Special to the News

News - It’s a cake sale for a great cause. The Stittsville Seniors Community by Revera on Stittsville Main Street will be hosting its second annual Celebrating Memories Cake Sale this Friday, Sept. 20 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. All of the proceeds will be going to the local chapters of the Alzheimer Society to help with its work regarding disease education and provision of community support for those suffering from Alzheimer’s. And the goal established for the event is to have 100 cakes donated and sold. It’s an ambitious goal but one that organizers believe is achievable if everyone gets involved. The involvement can take the form of donating a cake or cakes. Not only staff but also families of residents of the Stittsville Seniors Community and, yes, anyone else in the community is being encouraged to provide a cake or two for this Celebrating Memories Cake Sale. So, if you like to bake cakes, what about donating one or more to this event and help raise funds to help the Alzheimer Society in its work. All those who would like to help out by providing a cake or two for the event simply have to drop them off at the main entrance of the Stittsville Seniors Community (Stittsville Villa) at 1354 Stittsville Main Street this Thursday, Sept. 19 between the hours of 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. or this Friday, Sept. 20, the day of the sale, before 9 a.m. If cake baking is not your thing, you can still help out in a big way by attending the event and making a purchase. There will be cakes of all shapes and sizes and flavours on sale, so you will have plenty to choose from. Just drop into

the Stittsville Seniors Community between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. and make your choice. This Celebrating Memories Cake Sale is part of the Revera Giving – Community in Action initiative. Revera is trying to make a difference in the communities that it serves and give back and support causes and organizations that are meaningful to its communities, clients and employees. The Alzheimer Society was chosen as the recipient of the funds raised by this cake sale because Alzheimer’s touches the lives of many of those served by the Stittsville Seniors Community. The cake sale is also happening just the day before World Alzheimer’s Day which takes place on Saturday, Sept. 21 this year. World Alzheimer’s Day, which happens on Sept. 21 each year, is a day on which Alzheimer’s organizations around the world focus their efforts on raising awareness about Alzheimer’s and dementia. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia, a group of disorders that impairs mental functioning. Alzheimer’s disease is on the rise, with estimates that the number of those living with Alzheimer’s will rise by as much as four times by the year 2050. Alzheimer’s disease is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States. It is a disease that at present cannot be prevented, cured or even slowed at any extent. Any questions about this upcoming Celebrating Memories Cake Sale this Friday, Sept. 20 at the Stittsville Seniors Community on Stittsville Main Street should be directed to 613-8362216.

Goulbourn Jubilee Singers and JJ’s Outreach program for Special to the News

News - It’s a community choir with singers who enjoying singing with a group of like-minded people and also like having fun. That’s the Goulbourn Jubilee Singers, a choir that has been singing and performing in and around the west end communities of Ottawa for 36 years now. And another season is now underway, with the first weekly practice session held on Wednesday, Sept. 4 at the Stittsville United Church on Fernbank Road just west of Stittsville Main Street in Stittsville. This is where the Goulbourn Jubilee Singers hold their weekly Wednesday evening practices starting at 7:30 p.m. Anyone, male or female, who has singing in a choir on the “bucket list,” should consider attending one or more of these practice sessions to try out the choir and see if it is for you. All singers are most welcome and there are no auditions required.

Besides its regular weekly practices, the Goulbourn Jubilee Singers performs two concerts annually, one leading up to Christmas and one in the spring. The Jubilee Singers also sing at community events and at seniors residences. This year’s Christmas concert is already scheduled. Entitled “Winterval,” the concert will be held on Saturday, Nov. 23 at 7:30 p.m. and again on Sunday, Nov. 24 at 1:30 p.m. at the Glen Cairn United Church in Kanata. The first half of the program at this concert will see the choir performing Vivaldi’s “Gloria,” along with guest instrumentalists and guest soloists soprano Sarah Burnell and alto Annie Duchesne. The second half of the concert will feature a variety of Christmas favourites. Linda Crawford, a longtime, now retired music teacher at Goulbourn Middle School, is the musical director of the Goulbourn Jubilee Singers. She tries to keep the choir’s repertoire interesting and challenging for the

choir members. The Goulbourn Jubilee Singers’ new accompanist this season will be Erna Poettcker who is returning to the choir this season.

Oktoberfest Ottawa.. in Wunder-Barrhaven! R0012295719-0919

Stittsville News EMC - Thursday, September 19, 2013 57

Broadhead Brewing Co.

HARVEST ALE is a smooth amber ale, packed full of freshly harvested local Cascade hops, giving it a warm citrus finish. Sixth generation farmers, the guys over at Lot 17 Hop Yard delivered their entire crop of Cascade LONG SHOT WHITE is a fresh, fruit flavoured wheat ale that is brewed to be hazy and brazen! A spirited, sweet and slightly spicy beer that perfectly mingles coriander overtones, this brew a favourite of the Broadhead crowd! BACKBONE STANDARD ALE. Don’t let the name fool you… it is a hearty, all grain golden ale that’s crisp, well-balanced and overflowing with flavour. Lightly hopped with a medium body leading to a refreshing, sweet finish.

HogsBack HOGSBACK VINTAGE LAGER is a European-inspired lager with high grade flavour due to us utilizing only world glass ingredients combining three malt types, unique Saaz hops and German lager yeast. VONDERBARRHAVEN BROWN is a European beer style brewed with slightly fire kilned malts giving it its signature brownish colour and a slight malty chocolate – somewhat nutty, caramelized flavour with a sweet aroma and a slightly more bitter ending in taste in our mouth. OKTOBERFEST KOKONUT PALE ALE is a spectacular beer injected with a dash of toasted coconut. A clear golden colour with the aroma first hinting of the delicious coconut sweet pale malt, citrus and a dash of piney hops. The taste is malty then citrusy then a lovely coconut flavour finishes this beer off ending mildly (not wildly) dry and slightly peppery.

Oktoberfest weekend! Come join the celebrations in Wunder-Barrhaven on Oktoberfest Ottawa weekend. Who will be roaming the festival grounds this year? Well straight from Sunnyvale Trailer Park we have CYRUS FROM M THE TRAILER PARK BOYS who ho will be entertaining the crowds. In addition to all the fantastic musik, k, Cyrus, Bavarian Beauties, sausagee and pretzel eating contests and of course, beer… we have a few moree surprises all to make this THE biggest est Bytown Bavarian Bash yet! Our great music and atmosphere, scrumptious Bavarian themed and traditional festival food and drink makes for a FAN-tastic weekend for everyone of all ages who joins us at Oktoberfest Ottawa 2013 the weekend of September 27th to the 29th!

GOLDEN beer that incorporates a blend of the best Canadian and Bavarian malts giving it a very smooth and mild body that balances the crisp, pleasant German hop finish. NUT BROWN has the scent of slightly roasted coffee and chocolate with the color of hazelnuts. A much richer dark hue it is impressively mild and smooth to the palate, making it a very refreshing glass of beer.

Waupoos Cider This scrumptious cider is made from late harvest and European cider apples, semi-sweet and sparkling. Nicely balanced, it gives its drinkers a full fruity body with a light finish that is refreshing to your taste buds..

welcome where they can learn about the skill of knitting. These free Sunday afternoon drop-in knitting sessions are called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yap & Yarn,â&#x20AC;? which may give you some idea that while the hands are busy knitting, the voice can be busy as well, chatting away.

Wendy Ryan Special to the News

News – The last Friday barbeque of the season at the Richmond Legion Hall on Ottawa Street in Richmond happens this coming Friday, Sept. 20 from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. For this final barbeque of the season, there will be musical entertainment provided by Pam and Doug Champagne following the meal, so plan on sticking around for the music and perhaps a little dancing. This year these bi-weekly barbeques have all been well attended, with 100 or so in attendance at most of them. Darts is returning to the Richmond Legion this fall, with registration taking place on Thursday, Sept. 26 and Friday, Sept. 27, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. on both evenings. The fees are remaining the same as last year. Regular season play will begin on Friday, Oct. 4 at 8 p.m. If you cannot make it to either of the registration nights but would like to play, please call Mavis Lewis at 613-8382749 or Wendy Ryan at 613-838-9696. With the arrival of fall, the annual poppy campaign and Remembrance activities are coming closer. The Richmond Legion will be holding its door-to-door poppy blitz in the community on Saturday, Oct. 26, starting at 9 a.m. The annual Remembrance Day service will take place on Monday, Nov. 11, Remembrance Day at 11 a.m. at Memorial Park at the corner of Perth Street and McBean Street in Richmond. The parade marching to Memorial Park will form up at the Richmond Shopping Plaza at 10:30 a.m. The annual Remembrance service at Munster, coordinated by the Richmond Legion, will take place on Sunday, Nov. 10 at 2 p.m. The Richmond Legion’s website can be found at www. . Coffee is served each weekday at 10 a.m. at the Legion Hall on Ottawa Street.

News – Take note that Monday, Sept. 30 is the deadline for the submission of entries to this year’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 “A Snapshot in Time” 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 year’s photo contest are “Heritage Homes in Goulbourn”; “The Richmond Fair 2013: Tomorrow’s History”; “Goulbourn Swamps & Wetlands”; “Links to the Past”; and “Heritage Tombstones.” 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 Society’s website at .

MARY COOK 20 acre field held many Mary Cookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Memories fond memories


  % #!  $!! % & " !  # !  !# % # # % " ! % !#  $!"!  !

    $! !!


It was always called the Twenty-Acre Field. It separated our farm from our neighbours, the Thoms. Although they were no relation, we always called them Uncle Alec and Aunt Bertha. The 20 acres was always a hay ďŹ eld. Father said the soil was best for hay and other crops were planted on the ďŹ elds beyond the West Hill, where there was rich black loam, ideal for wheat, barley and oats. But the Twenty-Acre Field was more than just a ďŹ eld. When the hay had been taken off, you could see the path where dozens of times we had walked, rode horseback or taken the buggy in the summer and the cutter in the winter, over to the Thoms homestead. When the hay had yet to be harvested, we walked close to the fence that was in constant need of repair, but both Uncle Alec and Father could see no reason to ďŹ x it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need a fence to tell us where our land lies,â&#x20AC;? Uncle Alec would say whenever the subject came up to prop up the bent-over posts and maybe replace the wiring. If I was on my way to my friendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s farm, across the Twenty-Acre Field in the summertime, I walked close to the falling fence. I was sure if I walked through the hay I would get lost and never see my mother again, because the crop by mid-summer was far over my head. Coming home presented a problem though. My little friend Velma knew I was frightened of my own shadow, so she would walk with me half-

way through the ďŹ eld and stand there as I ran as fast as my legs could carry me home. As soon as I would reach the grape arbour, I would turn and wave to Velma and she would return to her own home. I marvelled at how brave was my little friend Velma. In the winter, when the hay had long since been taken off and only stubble remained, I would wait for the snow to come and cover the ďŹ eld with a white blanket. The ďŹ eld looked bigger then I thought. As soon as there was enough snow to make the ďŹ eld passable, Father would take the team of horses, hitch them to the big ďŹ&#x201A;at-bottomed sleigh and make many trips back and forth across the ďŹ eld to make a path. It would be as straight as a die, leading from our yard at the side of our house and right over to the opening in the fence where the gate hung by a hinge. And from under the blankets covering us, keeping out the cold, the Twenty-Acre Field looked like an immense white bedspread. After a fresh snow, the ďŹ eld sparkled like millions of diamonds and I felt the utmost joy and peace. I thought how blessed we were to own that special tract of land. It was supposed to separate the two farms, but in fact it tied us together. Today, decades later, the Twenty-Acre Field is still there. And through a childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eyes, so many years ago, the Twenty-Acre Field was a symbol of the times linking neighbours, creating a bond, like a good and warm handshake. R0012311523 R00
