U-Rock Music School singers sweep prizes Special to the News

Singers from Stittsville’s U-Rock Music School were “rockin’� in Carleton Place last Saturday. U-Rock Music School singers swept all four prizes at the Carleton Place Farmer’s Market vocal competition, taking away a total of $1,000 in cash prizes. Top prize winner was 13 year old Sarah Culbert who performed the Bruno Mars hit “If I Was Your Man.� She won the $500 top prize thanks to her flawless vocal rendition of this song that not only captivated the attention of the four judges but also won the popular vote as well. The second place prize of $300 went to 18 year old Andrew Waines both sang and played the acoustic guitar as her performed the song “One Day,� a song made popular

by the pop band Kodaline. Andrew appeared on the CTV Morning Live program last March. Karolina Moo, 13, won the third place prize of $150 with her performance of the song “Don’t Stop Believin’,� a 1981 hit by the American rock band Journey. Karolina gave an artful interpretation of the song, demonstrating her skilled use of the stage area and encouraging the crowd to clap along with her. Karolina recently placed in the top performers in the Ottawa Idol singing competition. The $50 fourth prize went to last year’s winner, Abigail Moffitt, 12, who sang a version of Alicia Keys’ “Empire State of Mind�. Abigail was recently a finalist in the Rising Star Talent Competition at the Canadian National Exhibition in Toronto. Besides capturing all four of the top prizes at this Carleton Place Farmer’s Market Vocal Competition, four other students from the U-Rock Music School made it to the competition’s semi-finals. These included Briana Kelford, 14; Samantha Clarke, 13; Heidi Nephin, 12; and Avery Stone, 10. See U-ROCK, page 3

Howie Hooper performs at Gaia Java John Curry

john.curry@metroland.com

Country music icon Johnny Cash will forever be known as the “Man in Black,� more so because of his on stage black clothing and the 1971 protest song “Man in Black� which arose out of a tumultuous time of the Vietnam War, racism and drug use. Singer/songwriter Howie Hooper had not only a Johnny Cash-like appearance featuring a black outfit including a black cowboy hat but also had something of a Johnny Cash-like sound at the music evening at the Gaia

Java Coffee Company shop last Friday. That’s because Howie, who accompanies himself on the guitar, sings songs that tell a story, much like many of Johnny Cash’s hits like “Folsom Prison Blues,� “One Piece at a Time,� “A Boy Named Sue� and “Don’t Take Your Guns to Town.� And Howie delivers his self-written songs with the same kind of intriguing voice that Johnny Cash had – deep but at times melodic and gentle. He introduced each song with a brief description of what inspired him to write it. Some songs were upbeat, some sad and slow and some fun little ditties such as the one with the lyrics “Grab a bottle, Twist a cap.� His guitar was always in play, sometimes just accompanying his vocals but at other times taking over, with a brief guitar flourish breaking out here and there during the performance. Howie started performing with local bands in Ottawa when he was just 13 years old, eventually evolving into a songwriter as well as performer. He blends the sounds and rhythms of so-called “new country� with the traditional country sounds that he grew up playing. Add touching sto-

ries to this mix and you have a memorable listening experience whenever you hear Howie perform. He is a three time Tin Pan North Songwriters Festival performer and was a finalist in the CanGig vocal competition in which he sang his own material. His song writing ability has been recognized as he recently presented a song crafting course in association with Ottawa’s Bluefest School of Music. Howie is currently recording a new CD called “Past Due.� The Gaia Java Coffee Company shop at the Stittsville Shopping Centre (Shoppers Drug Mart plaza) on Stittsville Main Street hosts a music evening every Friday starting at 7 p.m. There is no charge to attend but early arrival is recommended for the best seating. Donations are also most welcome to help the musicians with their expenses. This Friday, Oct. 9, the duo of Betty Ann Bryanton and Pierre Monfils will be performing at the Gaia Java music evening. It promises to be an evening of jazz standards and laughter.

Connected to your community

Saying goodbye to a friend The city lost an icon on Oct. 1. Max Keeping was a reporter, a news anchor and he came into thousands of homes every weeknight across Ottawa and eastern Ontario on CJOH, later CTV Ottawa. But he was more than that. He could have lived a 9-to-5 life and headed home after the cameras shut down at the end of each newscast. But he was more than willing to do much more. Keeping knew he was considered a friend to his viewers. He could have capitalized on that by appearing in commercial advertisements but he made the choice to put full his effort into helping those less fortunate. Keeping backed charities across the region – notably CHEO – encouraging viewers to help too, all in that familiar, calm tone of voice. Who could fail to respond when a friend asked for help? So Keeping was iconic. But he was more because he was not just a celebrity seeking more fame and more notoriety. He saw that kind of opportunity

existed but made a conscious decision to take a pass because kids, seniors and so many others might benefit from his connection with TV viewers. An example that touched our reporting staff: one cold winter’s night in 2003, Keeping drove straight from his newscast to the old bingo hall on Merivale Road, arriving minutes after 7 p.m. simply because he’d been asked to help out. He arrived to call out the final bingo numbers as one lucky player won a new car. It was all for charity of course. And the connection this city felt with Keeping was on display for all. As he walked in the room and gave his familiar wave, he received a standing ovation from the packed house. He was good for the city and the city knew it. He lived life to the max. The greatest tribute anyone can pay to Keeping’s lifelong support of charities is to make sure the efforts continue. If you were inspired by Keeping and his mantra: do something to make a difference in another’s life. Max, you will be missed.

Toronto will just have to do

T

his is hard. But we might as well own up to it. A number of us in Ottawa — probably quite a large number — are cheering for a Toronto sports team. No, of course it’s not the Argonauts. And it’s certainly not the Maple Leafs, except for a few who were cursed from birth with that affliction. No, it’s the Blue Jays, who are in the playoffs for the first time in 22 years, capturing the imagination of long-suffering local baseball fans. All the indicators are present: In a recent months I’ve been at Ottawa dinner parties where people were checking the score between courses. I’ve been at cottages where people with smart phones prowled the decks and docks hoping for a signal

That ended after the 2004 season when the team left Montreal, and perhaps some of us have been waiting that long to find something to replace it. Not that they could ever replace the Expos, but the Blue Jays, as the only Canadian team left, have a certain appeal, which is helped

considerably by the fact that they’re winning. Yes, it’s a bit icky, cheering for Toronto — when was the last time anyone in Toronto cheered for us? — but it seems to have happened. And even if it’s a bit embarrassing for National League purists to cheer for an American League team where the pitcher doesn’t hit, still it beats utter indifference. Imaging living your life cheering for nothing. Soon it will be over. How soon is the big question. Could be days, could be weeks. And then we can revert to our traditional behaviour pattern of cheering for Ottawa teams, living and dying with the Senators, and let’s not forget the new pattern of living and dying with the RedBlacks. Meanwhile, the baseball is exciting, the offence and the defence, the Jays are an interesting team to watch and we can rationalize cheering for

a Toronto team by thinking of it as cheering for a Canadian team. That will be easier once the American nationalism ramps up during the playoffs. And it could be an added incentive that the Blue Jays’ catcher, Russell Martin, spent part of his boyhood in Chelsea. Much more should be made of this. The thing is, people need to have someone to cheer for, particularly in these gloomy times, and if the nearest suitable object happens to be a team from Toronto, well, you take what you can get. No one gets hurt, after all. There is certainly precedent for this. In fact, it is all around us in the federal election. Few people are ever completely satisfied with the candidate or party they vote for. But they cheer for someone anyway. And vote. If they are not enthusiastic about their team winning, they are at least keen on seeing the other

Budgetary discretion varies for city council Special to the News

Ottawa council gets to mould the annual city budget each year but some parts of the budget can be sculpted more than others. That’s because the budgetary discretion that city council has over the various municipal services varies significantly. For some services, the city has no discretion regarding spending while for others, the city has limited discretion. For some, the city is in total control but then there are service standards that must be maintained, again limiting the ability to make severe changes. This amount of budgetary discretion available to city council was used by city treasurer Marian Simulik to explain the city’s overall budget at a pre-budget public consultation hosted by city of Ottawa councillors Shad Qadri of Stittsville ward and Marianne Wilkinson of the Kanata North ward at the John Mlacak Centre in Kanata on Tuesday evening, Sept. 29. Programs delivered by the city can be broken down into

certain categories based on the amount of budgetary discretion that city council has over the services. User funded programs such as water and sewer, parking and garbage collection are funded entirely by user fees and not from the tax base. The revenues generated by user fees must be sufficient to maintain the programs and their capital requirements. Non-discretionary programs such as long term care, public health, social services and debt charges are provincially legislated with the city obliged to fund related operations and their capital requirements. The city has no choice in the matter. City council has only limited discretion over policing as the police budget is developed by the Police Services Board, with council having no discretion over it except to refuse to approve it. However, the practice has been that council works with the Police Services Board in the development of the budget so that such conflict does not happen.

Then there are municipal programs that have service standards. This includes transit and paramedics. These programs must meet minimum standards like wait times and there is a minimum cost associated with maintaining such standards. Any improvement to these standards will require additional revenues. Direct service programs such as libraries and parks/ recreation doe provide city council with some room to alter funding but council must always be aware that any funding changes affect the level of service delivered. There are also support services such as governance, finance and communications which are essential to the city both in supporting the departments that deliver direct services and in providing administration oversight in running the municipality. City council can reallocate or re-prioritize funds between programs and services to address issues but there are limits on its discretion in doing so. In addition, there is always

the overriding reality that tax increases for city residents must be limited. The city of Ottawa must maintain a balanced operating budget. The provincial Municipal Act prohibits the city from running a deficit on operating expenditures. The city of Ottawa has a $3.1 billion operating budget in 2015. The breakdown of expenses arising from this budget is as follows: water and sewer services, 11%; Ottawa Police Services, 10%; Ottawa Public Library, 2%; capital formation costs, 9%; roads, traffic and parking, 6%; transit services, 15%; solid waste management, 2%; governance and program support, 8%; parks, recreation and culture, 7%; emergency and protective

services, 8%; planning, building code and economic development, 2%; community and social services, 13%; housing services, 5%; and Ottawa Public Health, 2%. The proposed budget guideline for the 2016 budget is that the city wide tax levy, which funds such services as police, library and public health, is to be increased by 1.75 percent. The transit levy is to be increased by 2.5 percent. The water rate is to increase by 6 percent. Budgetary pressures that have to be addressed in the 2016 budget include winter maintenance costs, Workers Safety and Insurance Board costs, arbitrated settlements with staff, vacancy provisions in operations and unachieved

revenue targets. The 2016 budget will be developed with the intention of addressing all of these issues. As for the city’s 2015 capital budget, the $689 million came from revenues, 6%; tax supported/dedicated reserves, 28%; rate supported reserves, 14%; gas tax, 8%; development charges, 18%; and debt, 26%. The bulk of the 2015 capital budget has gone to fund renewal of city assets (59%). The rest went to fund growth (28%) and strategic initiatives (13%). The city’s 2016 draft operating and capital budgets are to be tabled with city council on Nov. 12. Council is expected to adopt the city’s 2016 budget at its Dec. 9 meeting.

Members of the Cantata Singers of Ottawa are presenting a concert featuring Sergei Rachmaninoff ’s “All-Night Vigil,” often called “Vespers,” at St. Joseph’s Church on Wilbrod Street in Ottawa on Saturday, Oct. 24 at 8 p.m. It will be sung in a candlelight setting in the church, adding to the overall mood. The concert launches the choir’s 52nd season but first under new artistic director Andrew McAnerney. Tickets are available from Compact Music, The Leading Note and online at www. cantatasingersottawa.ca .

Cantata Singers include Stittsville singer Special to the News

For Judy Brush, singing with a high level choir was on her “bucket list” when she retired. So she brazenly auditioned for the Cantata Singers of Ottawa despite very little experience singing with a choir and lo and behold, now five years later, she continues to sing with the group. Of course, the Stittsville resident does have a music background, albeit more instrumental than vocal. She has a degree in music education and has performed in orches-

tras, chamber music ensembles and bands. She has also conducted choirs, sung with a quartet and occasionally been a singer. Judy really enjoys singing with the Cantata Singers as it involves learning challenging music and bringing it to a high standard of performance. She also notes that the others in the choir are wonderful folks, noting that being part of the Cantata Singers is a real treat due to the professionalism of the rehearsals and the performances. “The variety of the repertoire that we sing, including contemporary music, is also very interesting to me,” she writes in an email. “It’s all about the music and the people.” And you have an opportunity to see and hear the Cantata Singers of Ottawa including Judy perform at its upcoming first concert of the season on Saturday, Oct. 24. Indeed, it is the launching of the choir’s 52nd season. But while the Cantata Singers are entering their 52nd season, it will be the first season for the choir under its new artistic director Andrew McAnerney who has founded choirs and worked with various musical ensembles in the United Kingdom and Europe before coming to Canada in 2012. For this Oct. 24th concert, the Cantata Singers of Ottawa will be performing Sergei Rachmaninoff’s “All-Night Vigil” which is commonly known as “Vespers,” referring to

the sunset or evening prayer service associated with the liturgical day. Composed in 1915, Rachmaninoff’s “All-Night Vigil” is considered a gem of the choral repertoire with 15 movements for an a cappella choir along with alto and tenor soloists. The piece is viewed as at times as exciting as well as being exquisitely beautiful and very demanding of the singers. It is considered as one of Rachmaninoff’s best known and important works. From its first performance 100 years ago, it has been an audience favourite as it is always a thoroughly enjoyable listening experience. To add to the overall mood, the Cantata Singers will be performing Rachmaninoff’s “All-Night Vigil” aka Vespers in a candlelight setting in a church, namely St. Joseph’s Church on Wilbrod Street in Ottawa. The concert will be held on Saturday, Oct. 24 at 8 p.m. with tickets selling for $30 for adults (with a $5 advance purchase discount), $25 for seniors (with a $5 advance purchase discount) and $10 for students. Tickets are available from Compact Music, The Leading Note and online at www.cantatasingersottawa.ca . The concert will also include several shorter works that will be offered in keeping with the vespers/evening prayer theme of the concert.

No connecting roads to west for new subdivision A proposed new 731 housing unit subdivision at the southwest corner of Fernbank Road and Shea Road in Stittsville is going to be an island unto itself, at least as far as traffic is concerned. There are no road connections being proposed between this new subdivision and the existing and planned housing to the west, namely the West Wind Farm subdivision and the new Traditions II and Rathwell Landing subdivisions south of Hartsmere Drive. The subdivision plan, as presented at a public meeting at the hall at the Johnny Leroux Stittsville Community Arena in Stittsville on Thursday evening, Oct. 1, showed mainly single family homes adjacent to existing homes on Shining Star Circle and Friendly Crescent. At the meeting, Melissa Cote, representing Tartan Homes, the developer, agreed to remove several semi-detached homes proposed to be adjacent to existing single family homes, changing them to single family homes. Only single family homes will be adjacent to existing homes, she pledged. But she also said that a proposed buffer zone between the new development and existing homes is not being proposed as such a buffer zone or walkway between the new and existing development would count as parkland and thus would result in a reduction of the proposed 2.14 hectare park proposed for the development. Also, in reply to a question at the meeting, she rejected a suggestion that the lot widths for the homes adjacent to existing homes on Shining Star Circle and Friendly Crescent be the same as those of the existing homes which are

wider than those being proposed. She said that going to wider lot widths than the 34 foot and 45 foot lots proposed would mean that the developer would not meet the housing densities required for the new development. In addition, she pointed out that the home builders in this new subdivision do not have housing models suitable for wider lots such as 50 foot lots. Ms. Cote, though, did agree to look at the possibility of preserving a thin strip of trees adjacent to Friendly Crescent, saying that such a possibility could be looked at when more detailed design work is done related to the new subdivision. She also noted that the grade differences between the existing homes and the new subdivision are either the same or lower for the new subdivision, so that existing homes will not be lower than the new homes with residents looking at basements. The proposed plan of subdivision calls for bungalows being built in the northwest corner of the site. Higher density housing such as stacked townhomes and low rise condominiums are slated for an area along Shea Road east of the hydro corridor which runs north/south through the site. There will be two main streets serving the subdivision, one allowing access to Fernbank Road and one allowing access to Shea Road. The planned park will be situated at the junction of these two roads. The hydro corridor itself will be zoned as open space. There is a possibility that a roundabout will govern traffic at the intersection of the main street into the new subdivision and Fernbank Road. Pierre Dufresne of Tartan Homes, in re-

Summit for caregivers Special to the News

Taking care of a family member who suffers from mental illness can be draining emotionally, physically and financially. That’s why it is important to connect with others who face the same challenges. It allows a caregiver to realize that he or she is not alone and there are others who are dealing with the same challenges on a daily basis as well. One good place for caregivers to make connections and to learn from others is the third annual Mental Illness Caregivers Association (MICA) Summit which is happening on Saturday, Oct. 24 at Glen Cairn United Church on Abbeyhill Drive in Kanata. This is being hosted not only by MICA but also by The Oasis in Kanata, an organization that offers regular programs for caregivers of those with symptoms of mental illness. The theme of this MICA

Summit will be “Families Building Partnerships” which will focus on caregiver collaboration and engagement with both public and private institutions to bring about long lasting solutions to the issues that affect families of those with a mental illness. This free day-long MICA Summit, running from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., is expected to attract caregivers from across Eastern Ontario. Refreshments and a light lunch will be provided. Pre-registration is required with space limited. Those planning to attend are urged to register before Friday, Oct. 9 at www.micaontario.com . For more information about this MICA Summit, please call 613-860-7800. MICA, established in 2008, is an association of family, friends and consumers of mental health services who provide mutual support to manage the effects of serious and persis-

tent mental illness. In recent years the organization has worked across Eastern Ontario to identify priority issues and stimulate action. This upcoming MICA Summit will provide those who attend with an opportunity to learn more about the progress being made by family members and their partner institutions and their partner institutions, for caregivers to connect with other caregivers, and for caregivers to suggest ideas that will help create a better quality of life for themselves and their loved ones. The Oasis in Kanata is an outreach program of Glen Cairn United Church that provides information and support to caregivers of people with symptoms of mental illness in Kanata, Stittsville, Goulbourn and the surrounding areas. For more information about The Oasis in Kanata, visit www. TheOasisKanata.ca .

ply to a question about the wisdom of having a roundabout at that location, said that the intersection will be designed as a safe intersection. Ms. Cote said that butternut trees are the only species at risk identified as being on the property. She said that the a compensation agreement with the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources would make up for any loss of butternut trees due to the development. She also noted that the three home builders who will be constructing homes in the new subdivision all build to Energy Star standards which should address any concerns about energy efficient housing and greenhouse gas emissions. There is a commercial area being proposed near the Fernbank Road/ Shea Road intersection. However, it is not part of this proposed plan of subdivision. It was noted that any homeowners backing onto this future commercial site will be notified about its presence through wording in the purchase and sale agreements related to such homes backing onto the commercial area. This proposed plan of subdivision has 731 housing units, broken down as 329 single family homes (45 percent of the total), 108 semi-detached homes (15 percent of the total), 122 townhomes (17 percent of the total) and 172 low rise stacked and apartment units (24 percent of the total). There is a 2.14 hectare park as well as a 1.7 hectare storm water management pond just south of the planned subdivision. This storm water management pond will be able to handle

not only the proposed subdivision but also the proposed future commercial area that is not part of this subdivision proposal. About 20 members of the public attended the Oct. 1 public meeting about this proposed subdivision plan. The proposed subdivision plan will now be reviewed by city planning staff, with consideration being given not only to comments voiced at this public meeting but also to comments received from various government agencies as the proposed plan has been circulated to them. Eventually the draft plan of subdivision will be finalized and draft approval conditions applied to it. These conditions will have to be met before the plan becomes registered and homes can be built. A rezoning of the land will also run in parallel with the plan of subdivision process. This rezoning will change the zoning on the land from its current rural zoning to appropriate residential, parkland and open space zonings. The city planner who is handling this file is Mary Ellen Wood who can be contacted by phone at 613-580-2424, ext. 16482 or via email at Maryellen.Wood@ottawa.ca .

Goulburn Bowling Lanes - Hub of village life Special to the News

For 20 years in the 1950’s and 1960’s, Stittsville bowlers ruled the lanes in the Ottawa Valley. This was due to the existence of the Goulburn Bowling Lanes in Stittsville, which not only was a hotbed of bowling during their 22 year lifetime but also was very much the hub

of village life. The Goulburn Bowling Lanes operated from 1948 to 1970 in a building which stood on the site where the caboose chip wagon now stands on the east side of Stittsville Main Street between the Wintergreen Drive entrance to the Wyldewood subdivision and the Frederick Banting Alternate School, formerly the Stitts-

12 Stittsville News - Thursday, October 8, 2015

ville Public School. It was in the spring of 1948 that Denzil Graham and two co-workers at the Department of Agriculture, Rod MacVicar and Angus McLennan, got the idea to build a bowling alley in Stittsville. It must be remembered that in 1948, Stittsville was a much different place than it is today. It was much smaller, with a population of around 500, as this was before the Post War building boom which hit the community in the 1950’s. It was also, in real terms, farther removed from Ottawa with no Queensway, just old highway 15 winding its way through Bells Corners and Hazeldean on its way through Stittsville and beyond to Ashton. The new highway seven bypassing Stittsville was still a decade away. But Stittsville’s rural location did not deter Denzil, Rod and Angus as they picked what they thought was a suitable site, namely two acres of land fronting on highway 15 which was Stittsville’s Main Street as well. They purchased the land from the late Rock McCurdy for $300. Mr. McCurdy owned all of the land which is now the Wyldewood subdivision, using it as farm pasture. The McCurdy farmstead itself was located where the Iber Road business park now exists. From this original two acre site, half an acre was severed and purchased by Denzil Graham for $75. This is where he built a home in which he lived for decades and which is still standing, now used by a mortgage firm. The building housing the bowling alleys was constructed by the late Orville Parks who lived just across the road in the home at the corner of Stittsville Main Street and Alexander Street now occupied by Rodney and Sharon Stead. Mr. parks’ helper on the project was Sterling Graham, Denzil’s brother. Right from the very start, the bowling alley was a success. The Goulburn (it was intentionally spelled different from the Goulbourn township name to avoid any concerns regarding the use of the municipality’s name) Bowling Lanes had 17 leagues play on its alleys. With 24 players in each league, this meant that at least 548 bowlers used the alleys every week.

In 1957, Fred Drake and Denzil Graham bought out Rod MacVicar and Angus McLennan. They then ran the business as a half and half ownership for six months, as which time the property and business were bought in full by Denzil Graham. It stayed this way until Denzil sold the property to Ken MacTavish in October, 1970. This sale marked the end of the bowling lanes in Stittsville and Mr. MacTavish developed the property as the Kiltie MacTavish Furniture Warehouse, an enterprise which flourished for about a decade. The premises, which no longer exist on the site, then became the home of restaurants such as Rocky’s Roadhouse Restaurant and Moonlighters. The bowling leagues which used the Goulburn Bowling Lanes included the Stittsville Ladies’ League on Wednesday afternoons, two leagues every night of the week from Monday to Saturday, a Sunday night league, a Saturday morning children’s league and Peewee, Bantam and Midget bowling leagues, coached most of the time by George McCoy. There was tournament bowling on Saturday and Sunday afternoons including 25 game tournaments in one day. George Graham won a 25 game, one day tournament with an average score of 276. This was an example of the exceptional bowling which took place at the Goulburn Bowling Lanes. It was this type of outstanding bowling by a host of bowlers that made Stittsville the leading community in Ottawa Valley bowling in the 1950’s and 1960’s. The Goulburn Bowling Lanes played in the Lower Ottawa Valley Tournament for a number of years and won every year except for one. Teams in this tournament included North Gower, Manotick, Winchester, Newington, the Department of Agriculture, Richmond and Stittsville. The Goulburn Bowling Lanes had similar success in the Upper Ottawa Valley Tournament which had teams from Smiths Falls, Carleton Place, Almonte, Arnprior, Renfrew and Stittsville.

This week, I wanted to take the opportunity to provide updates on several projects in the Richmond area. As you have likely noticed, Shea Road has reopened following the culvert replacement project, north of Hemphill Street. As previously promised, the Shea Road project and the Eagleson Road project were aligned so as not to create closures on both roads at the same time. Beginning this week, Karson Konstruction will start working on the Eagleson Road culvert replacement will also result in a closure. Eagleson Road is expected to be closed from October 13 until November 2 and the project is expected to wrap up by the end of November. Detours will be in place. Richmond Forcemain Upgrades Over the last 18 months, this column has featured updates on the planned repairs and modifications to the Richmond Forcemain that the City will be undertaking. Over that time, the City has been conducting field investigation works. These investigations are necessary to complete the detailed design for the repairs and modifications. To refresh your memory, the construction project will involve repairing the existing 500mm forcemain, the installation of a new temporary 300mm forcemain to facilitate the repairs, and the installation of a new section of 600mm forcemain for the proposed future development within the Village of Richmond.

Denzil and Lil Graham, with their daughter Joanne between them, stand beside a car decorated to promote the Goulburn Bowling Lanes in this picture taken in 1964. The car featured a miniature bowling alley, complete with pins, which had been put together for the Goulburn Bowling Lanes by Rodney Parks. The Goulburn Bowling Lanes can be seen behind the car, at the left, with its sign for bowling, a snack bar and gas and oil.

Host of really good bowlers Continued from page 12

Stittsville boasted a host of really good bowlers during the years of operation of the Goulburn Bowling Lanes. Some of these top bowlers included George Graham, Pete Graham, Rodney Parks, Weldy Parks, Doug Whitfield, Barry Graham, Ray Hobin, Bill Bradley, Bruce Knox, Glen Scott, George McCoy, Merv Graham, Bert Gordon, Sonny Foster, Bob Lewis, Sterling Trimble, Bob Laviolette, Sterling Graham, Lloyd Maguire, Ronnie Martin, Ed Cordukes, Everett Neill, Bob Barnett, Ernie Rothwell, MacLoucks, Bud Haw, Fred Drake and Ray McCaffrey. Top lady bowlers included Lorraine McKay, Marguerite Scott, Helen Knox, Lil Graham, Phyllis Smith, Beryl Parks, Audrey Foster, Joy Macdonnell, Dot McCaffrey, Doreen Seabrook, Jean Patterson, Edna Hunt, Doreen Kelso, Mildred Rothwell, Helen Rattray, Lil Neill and Claire Bradley. While these are not complete lists by any means of the numerous avid and good bowlers that played at the Goulburn Bowling Lanes, they are meant to show that the Goulburn Bowling Lanes did boast a wide array of fine bowlers and was a hotbed of top bowling in the Ottawa Valley. Part of the reason for the outstanding success of the Goulburn Bowling Lanes was that it was more than just bowling alley. It was the “place to go”, the virtual “community centre” in the years before the construction of the Stittsville arena. Bowling caught on with the residents of the community with

the construction of the alleys and bowling came to be a major pastime in the community. George McCoy, for instance, had never bowling until the Goulburn Bowling Lanes opened but then he bowled continuously until two nights before his death at the age of 76. Bert Spratt, with the Richmond Married Couples’ League, bowling at the Goulbourn Bowling Lanes for the whole 22 years that the bowling lanes operated in Stittsville. Indeed, the Richmond Married Couples’ League insisted on bowling one night after the sale of the property in October, 1970. This made it 23 seasons of bowling on the lanes for Bert Spratt. Indeed, when Denzil Graham sold the property to Ken MacTavish in October, 1970, it was still a going concern as a bowling alley. He had signed contracts from all of the regular bowling leagues for the upcoming season. But he opted instead to sell the property and wind up the bowling operation. The alleys themselves were removed and sold to the North Gower Recreation Association for use in the North Gower bowling alleys. Brunswick Pinsetters had been installed at the Goulburn Bowling Lanes in February, 1957 and these were used for a number of years. But then the alleys returned to the use of pin boys, just as it had had in its early years. The original pin boys at the Goulburn Bowling Lanes were Sid Bradley, George Spearman, Keith Paul, Pete Graham, George

Graham and Neil Porteous. Norman McCaffrey, reeve of Goulbourn township at the time, cut the ribbon and rolled the first ball down the alley on opening night in 1948. He got a strike with the ball, certainly a precursor of the many strikes to come on these alleys from the village’s many outstanding bowlers. Orville Parks, who built the building, rolled the second ball down the alley on that opening night. He got a spare with the ball even though it was the first time that he had ever rolled a bowling ball down an alley. The Goulburn Bowling Lanes had a snack bar in the front of the building which seated 25 people. When the alleys opened in 1948, this was the only place where a person could get a coffee from Stittsville into Bells Corners. For most of the 22 years of operation of the bowling alleys, this snack bar was the only eating spot in Stittsville. As a result, it was a real gathering spot, as people would drop in for a coffee or a snack and watch the bowling, with lots of kidding and fun taking place. Lil Graham, Denzil’s wife, managed the snack bar for a number of years. Among those who worked with Lil in the snack bar were Marion Colpitts, Jean Thomas, Gwen Acres and Carmel Devaney. During the last few years when the bowling alleys operated, the snack bar was operated by Marnie Roesler. The Goulbourn Bowling Lanes did have gas pumps outside for a number of years when Main Street was highway 15 and the main route between Ottawa and Carleton Place.

This latest round of investigative works will include additional hydrovac excavations, installation of groundwater monitoring wells, groundwater level monitoring and hydraulic testing within the proposed and existing monitoring wells, and pre-construction private water well surveys and water quality sampling. You may have noticed that some of this work wasn’t mentioned in previous notices. As a result of the investigations to date, it became apparent that dewatering of the excavation site will be necessary which has led to the need to monitor water levels before and during construction. A total of seven multi-level groundwater monitoring wells will be installed at the following locations: two monitoring wells along King Street; three monitoring wells along Cockburn Street (one north of the Jock River and two on the south side); and two monitoring wells along Colonel Murray Street. Door-to-door surveys of residences serviced by private drinking water wells within 100 metres of the construction alignment will also be conducted by Houle Chevrier Engineering Ltd. The purpose of the Drinking Water Well Survey is to obtain general background information regarding the water well construction and water quality. Participation in the Drinking Water Well Survey is completely voluntary and will be completed free of charge. The confidentiality of all participants will be respected. The following activities will be carried out as part of the drinking water well survey: • A water sample will be collected from one of your taps (preferably a non-treated location such as a cold water bypass for drinking, a pressure tank or outdoor tap); • A brief interview will be conducted regarding the construction of your well and groundwater quality and quantity; • The water sample will be submitted to an accredited laboratory for analysis of a range of bacteriological, chemical and physical parameters; • The results of the laboratory analysis will be compared to the Ontario Drinking Water Standards; and, • A letter will be sent to you along with a copy of the laboratory analysis. For any questions or to participate in the drinking water well survey program, please contact Ms. Katherine Rispoli (613-836-1422 ext. 261 or krispoli@ hceng.ca). If you have any comments, questions or concerns, please feel free to email me at Scott.Moffatt@ottawa.ca or contact me by phone at 613-580-2491.

ice or on the pavement of a parking lot, with players from the hometown NHL team, the Ottawa Senators. This is what happened last Sunday afternoon when the Stittsville Minor Atom RAMS team played a road hockey game against five Ottawa Senators – Craig Anderson, Curtis Lazar, Mark Stone, Chris Wideman and Andrew Hammond. Just the night before, Mark Stone and Chris Wideman had both scored goals for the Senators in a 5-4 exhibition game win over the Montreal Canadiens at the Canadian Tire Centre. Now here they were, passing, shooting and defending in a road hockey game against this team of Stittsville minor hockey players in their white RAMS jerseys. It doesn’t get any better than this – it’s a dream come true. This dream came true for these young Stittsville hockey players when a parent had been the high bidder on this road hockey game with the Ottawa Senators at the gala charity auction which Napoli’s Café holds

every December. Bassel Khalil of Napoli’s and his brother Milad Khalil were both on hand for the event, with Bassel taking lots of photos and moving with a perpetual smile on his face through the crowd of parents and siblings who watched the ball hockey game from the restaurant’s outdoor patio adjacent to the playing area a.k.a parking lot as well as from the edge of the parking lot. Bassel pointed out that this was a great community event, made possible not only because of the generosity of the parent at the restaurant’s gala charity auction but also by the cooperation of the Ottawa Senators players. The players were treated to a pregame “meal,” as it were, sitting at the bar of the restaurant where they enjoyed a sundae-like treat. Napoli’s later also treated all of the parents and spectators and players to pizza on the outdoor patio. See LOTS, page 23

Lots of autographs, photos Continued from page 20

Before the road hockey game began just after 2:20 p.m., a warm-up period saw the Sens players and RAMS players participate in a free-for-all with road hockey balls zooming here and there – it was every player for himself, more or less. But this also was a time when the Sens players autographed many a jersey, hat and stick for the young players and when they posed for photographs with the young

RAMS. There was even a time-out for a couple of group photographs – the RAMS with the Sens and also the RAMS and their siblings with the Sens. And Bassel and Milad Khalil were in the photos as well. Then, the road hockey game got underway, with two nets set up and with the five Sens taking on two eight-player line shifts for the RAMS (seven players plus a goalie). See LAST GOAL, page 25

Last goal wins game - Curtis Lazar scores Continued from page 23

The Sens Andrew Hammond, the famous Hamburglar, played despite the groin injury that has him out of the Sens lineup for a while. Being in nets was not possible due to the injury but he showed some promising stickhandling and passing moves as a forward. And so did, by the way, Sens goalie Craig Anderson who showed passing, sticking and shooting skills not usually associated with a goalie as, just like with the Hamburglar, he played the game as a forward, out of the net. It all wound up at 3 p.m. when it was announced that the next goal would win the game and this turned out to be a goal scored by the Sens Curtis Lazar. The Sens and RAMS then lined up for post-game highfives after which the RAMS banged their sticks on the ice i.e. pavement as a way of thanking the Sens for playing against them. There was then time for more photographs and more autographs as the Sens relaxed in the sunshine of the afternoon, enjoying a time of conversation and refreshments with the young players and their parents and families. It was the final scene in this “rink of dreams� event.

HISTORY

Connected to your community

Colonel George Thew Burke headed Richmond settlement John Curry john.curry@metroland.com

The person who made the greatest contribution to the settlement of this area and who could be considered the most prominent and influential public servant in this area in the first half of the 19th century is Colonel George Thew Burke. While his contributions to the settlement of Richmond and the surrounding areas was immense through his role as superintendent of the military settlement of Richmond from 1818 to 1822, his ongoing role as the first land registrar for Carleton County gave him a continuing influence that lasted until his death in 1854. As the superintendent of the Richmond military settlement, he was responsible for the allocation of land grants to the earliest settlers in Goulbourn, Beckwith, Huntley and Fitzroy townships, along with some allocations in both Nepean and Rideau townships. It was under his leadership that the village of Richmond was surveyed and laid out prior to the initial arrival of settlers in 1818. As well as being the superintendent of the military settlement for four years, until it was removed from military control, Colonel Burke also filled the roles of magistrate and postmaster. As the acknowledged leader of the community, he commanded the local militia in Richmond. He also served as a school trustee for the early school which was established in Richmond. Colonel Burke was the first member of the provincial Legislature for Carleton County, serving two terms in a period from 1821 to 1828. It was during this time that the final plans and authorizations for the soon-to-be-built Rideau Canal were instigated. Colonel Burke, who was born in Tipperary, Ireland in 1776, had a distinguished military career prior to his appointment as the superintendent of the Richmond military settlement in 1818. He entered the British army in 1798, joining the Irish Fencibles. He went on to serve in Egypt and then was used as a recruiter in his native Ireland, an indication of his leadership skills even as a young officer. In this recruiting role, he was instrumental in raising the 100th Regiment of Foot which later became the 99th Regiment when the army’s size was reduced. It was this regiment which provided many of the early settlers in the Richmond/Goulbourn area. The young then-Captain Burke went on to serve in Spain and on the Duke of Wellington’s staff at Waterloo. In the War of 1812 which was fought between the British and the United States in North America, he fought at Queenston Heights under General Isaac Brock and took part in the hard fought battles of Sackett’s Harbour and Chateauguay. At the battle of Sackett’s Harbour in May, 1813, the war documents outline the following action by Captain Burke: “The advance was led by the Grenadiers of the 100th Regiment (under the command of Captain Burke) with undaunted gallantry, which no obstacle could arrest. … Captain Burke availed

himself of the ample field afforded him in leading the advance to display the intrepidity of British Grenadiers…” At the Battle of Chateauguay, then-Brevet Major Burke not only conveyed messages between the front and the military headquarters in the rear but also carried out some reconnoitering of the enemy lines. Following the War of 1812, Colonel Burke was appointed to the posts of Deputy Assistant Quarter Master General and also Brigade Major at Quebec where the 100th Regiment was posted following the war. He did retire on half pay but then was selected by Sir John Sherbrooke, who was Governor and Command-in-Chief in Canada at the time, to become the superintendent of the Richmond military settlement. Indeed, an obituary written in the Ottawa Citizen in February, 1854 at the time of his death describes Colonel Burke and his military service as follows: “Colonel Burke was always characterized by his mild and unassuming manners, and during his military career was beloved by his brother officers for his distinguished bravery and coolness on the field of battle.” As the superintendent of the Richmond military settlement, Colonel Burke was a constant companion of the Duke of Richmond during his visit to the settlement in August, 1819. He had met him in Perth and accompanied him to Richmond, with reports suggesting that he never left the Duke’s side during the visit, perhaps partly because the Duke was also exhibiting signs of the disease which would eventually take his life as he lay in a barn along the Jock River at Twin Elm, just outside of Richmond. Colonel Burke was 78 years old at the time of his death in 1854. His wife, the former Lydia Anne Grant, had predeceased him in 1825. Both are buried in the St. Philip’s cemetery in Richmond.

Richmond Village Orchard Special to the News

It’s harvest time now, turning thoughts to locally grown produce and fruit. And so this is a perfect time as well to think about the Richmond Village Orchard, a local effort to connect unused fruit trees with folks who would like to find and use locally grown produce. In other words, this Richmond Village Orchard effort pairs trees with a volunteer “steward” who will “adopt” the tree by orga-

nizing its harvest as well as any light pruning that the tree may need over the course of the year. The tree owner gets to keep what he or she would like from the tree’s harvest while the steward donates the rest of the harvest to local food-based charities. So, if you have a tree that you would like to share with others or if you are interested in volunteering to harvest a tree or if you are passionate about adopting a tree as a

steward, this Richmond Village Orchard program is for you! The Richmond Village Orchard program helps ensure that local fruits in Richmond do not go to waste, just rotting on the tree or falling to the ground, but rather go to help others enjoy, quite literally, the fruits of local trees.

The story behind Richmond’s street names Special to the News

Street names in Richmond refer in large part to the history of the village, with street names arising not only from the names of historical personalities from the time of the establishment of the village in 1818, but also arising in many cases from the names of significant persons throughout the history of the village. Richmond initially was laid out by military surveyors in a grid pattern and the initial street names included references to the monarchy of the time, as well as to prominent early military settlers. With the formation of the new amalgamated city of Ottawa in 2001, a process was undertaken to eliminate duplicate street names in the vast new municipality. This resulted in the change of some street names in the village but most retained in the new name some reference to their original name. Duplicate street names had to be eliminated in the new city so that the 9-1-1 emergency response system would work properly and efficiently. The street names in Richmond

and their historical significance are as follows: Queen Street (now called Queen Charlotte Street) - Charlotte was the wife of King George III who was on the throne in England in 1818 when Richmond was founded; Fortune Street - Colonel Fortune was associated with the 100th Regiment of Foot which provided the core group of military settlers in 1818; Maitland Street - Sir Peregrine Maitland was the Lieutenant-Governor of Upper Canada at the time of settlement. He was also a son-in-law of the Duke of Richmond, married to Lady Sarah Lennox; Fowler Street - Major Fowler was an officer of the 100th Regiment; Lennox Street - Charles Lennox was the name of the Duke of Richmond; McBean Street - McBean was the name of the surveyor who laid out the village of Richmond initially; Murray Street (now called Colonel Murray Street) - Colonel Murray was an officer of the 100th Regiment; Cockburn Street - Colonel Fran-

cis Cockburn was an aide to the Duke of Richmond. He provided the advice that led to the decision to establish the military settlement of Richmond; King Street - George III was the King of England at the time of the settlement of Richmond in 1818; Perth Street - The settlement of Perth, also established as a military settlement but two years before Richmond in 1816, could be reached by an extension of this street; Hamilton Street - Hamilton was an officer of the 100th Regiment; Martin Street - Martin was an officer of the 100th Regiment; Strachan Street - Bishop Strachan was the first Anglican Bishop of Upper Canada; York Street (now called Royal York Street) - The Duke of York was a royal personage at the time of the settlement of Richmond; Burke Street - Colonel George Thew Burke was the superintendent of the Richmond military settlement and went on to become the area’s first MPP and later the land registrar for the area;

Ottawa Street - named after the Ottawa River; Chanonhouse Drive - Dr. R. C. Chanonhouse was a doctor in Richmond who served as reeve of the village from 1912 to 1914; Dallaire Crescent - Joe Dallaire was a longtime barber in Richmond as well as the village’s first appointed fire chief; Mac Storey Street – The late Mac Storey of Richmond is a former Richmond and Goulbourn councillor, a former Richmond school board trustee, a former operator of a general store and a longtime volunteer firefighter and deputy fire chief for Richmond, after whom the upstairs hall at the new fire hall was named; Temple Street - Ernie Temple was a Richmond village councillor and school board trustee. He was one of the founders of Silver Stick Hockey; Ormsby Crescent - Major Sewell Ormsby was an officer among the first military settlers. He became a Justice of the Peace and Magistrate for the settlement; Stewart Street (now named Musket Street) - James Stewart was

reeve of the village of Richmond from 1907 to 1911 as well as being a prominent farmer, carriage maker and undertaker. Musket Street carries a connotation of pioneer military muskets, evoking the memory of the disbanded British military settlers who were the initial settlers in the Richmond area; Gamble Drive - J. Edgar Gamble was reeve of Richmond from 1932 to 1946 and from 1950 to 1968. He served as warden of Carleton County and was one of those instrumental in having South Carleton High School located in Richmond in 1952. He also operated a garage on the site of the present-day Memorial Park in Richmond; Hemphill Street - William Hemphill was reeve of Richmond from 1928 to 1931. His son, John Hemphill, was postmaster of Richmond from 1912 to 1941 as well as village clerk for 20 years; Nixon Farm Drive - William Nixon was a farmer whose farm lane ran where the street is located now;

Naming streets in village of Richmond Continued from page 30

Moore Street - Harold Moore was reeve of Richmond from 1947 to 1949. This street now extends westward through the King’s Grant subdivision to Huntley Road. Shea Road - John Shea was a farmer whose farm was on the Shea Road immediately north of the village; Huntley Road - This is the former regional road five which runs northward beside the Richmond arena towards Stittsville. It was the historical road which led from Richmond towards Huntley township (which became a part of West Carleton township and now is part of the West Carleton/March Ward of the city of Ottawa) and beyond that to the Upper Otttawa Valley and the lumber camps there. Four subdivisions in the village have street names that do not refer to specific historical personages from the history of the village. When Sefton Nesbitt’s property was subdivided in the 1950s, the

street names reflected family names. Douglas Drive was named after his son, while Evelyn Street was named after his wife. Penny Street was named after his daughter while Bennett Street reflected his mother’s maiden name. Stewart Street referred to James Stewart, a former Richmond reeve and businessman. The Richmond Estates subdivision at the south end of the village was subdivided in the 1970s with the Terkuc family building the homes. The street names for this subdivision do not have any particular historical connection to the village’s history. The street names are Richland Drive, Lulworth Court, Underhill Court and Longridge Court. The King’s Grant subdivision in Richmond features in its first phases street names related to the War of 1812 in keeping with the military roots of Richmond’s early settlement. The 100th Regiment fought in the War of 1812 and many of the early settlers were veterans of this war. King’s Grant itself relates to the system of the king, namely King George

III at that time, granting land to settlers after they had cleared it. Street names in the first phase of the King’s Grant subdivision are Lundy’s Lane after a battle in the War of 1812; Queenston Drive after the battle at Queenston Heights in which British commander Sir Isaac Brock was killed; Regal Crescent in reference to King George III; Mary Hill Crescent, named after Maria Glennon Hill, one of the original settlers whose first husband Sergeant Taylor ran the Masonic Arms Tavern where the Duke of Richmond attended a banquet in his honour on the night before his tragic death at Richmond in 1819, and who later married Sergeant Hill, another of the early settlers. She bequeathed the funds for the spire of St. John’s Anglican Church in Richmond; and Melissa Court, named after the daughter of the developer of King’s Grant. Other street names in the King’s Grant subdivision include Gertie Street, Arlberg Lane, Dr. Neelin Drive, Arlberg Lane, Oradea Crescent and Grovewood Lane. None

have any particular historical connection to Richmond. The Richmond Oaks subdivision off Perth Street, developed by Cedarstone Homes, had three street names in its first three phases, Tarryn Terrace, Rochelle Drive and Mira Court. These street names are associated with relatives of the developer. Additional street names in further phases of the subdivision include Corndav Way and Cedarstone Street. Streets in the new Richmond Gate subdivision which is north of the Richmond Shopping Centre include Cedarstone Street which connects it with the Richmond Oaks subdivision to the west, Nixon Farm Drive which connects it to Perth Street and Talos Circle. The streets in the Hyde Park townhouse retirement community in Richmond have names with a British flavour. That is because the street names have come from a list of possible street names provided by Mrs. Joyce Deeks, one of the first residents of the community, based on street names from her native Great

Britain. These initial streets names selected for Hyde Park are Oak Leaf Private, Chestnut Green Private and Grassendale Private. Other street names include Sunbeam Private and Pumpkin Patch Way. The name Pumpkin Patch Way, which runs behind Tony’s Chip Wagon, may come from the fact that the late Tony El-Kassis of Tony’s Chip Wagon at one time had a huge garden on the land where the street now runs. The garden did include pumpkins as well as other produce. The Jock River Estates subdivision off Ottawa Street just west of the Richmond Legion Hall has one street which is named Sangeet Place. The village of Richmond was incorporated as a municipality in 1850 and existed as a separate municipality until 1974 when the villages of Richmond and Stittsville were joined with the rural Goulbourn township that existed at that time to form the new Goulbourn township. This Goulbourn township existed until the formation of the new city of Ottawa in 2001.

Huskies head coach Curtis MacNeil said that the Huskies defense played well in the game, as the defense had to take the field a number of times after the offense had turned over the ball deep in their own end. Coach MacNeil said that the offense never got going in the game, noting that the weather had a lot to do with it.

Colourful picnic table is outside Munster library Special to the News

It’s a picnic table with a difference. It is sitting outside the Munster branch of the Ottawa Public Library, a place where youngsters and families can sit, perhaps reading, perhaps just sitting.

This picnic table has been painted with some artwork which Munster librarian Susan McDonald terms “libraryish” and definitely cheerful. It is a picnic table that the Boy Scouts had made and donated to the Munster library a few years ago. Librarian

McDonald had a picture that she thought would go good on the picnic table. She enlisted her niece Katie Turnbull who drew the picture on the table. Munster library volunteer John MacDonald transported the picnic table from the librarian’s home to the library.

I have been living with my boyfriend for 18 months and we have no plans to get married. At what point are we considered “common law” and what does that mean?

Blood donor clinic at Holy Spirit School

What constitutes “common law” as most people use the term is highly dependent on the circumstances. In terms of the ownership of assets, a common law spouse has no right to the assets of the other party – the starting point at law is that each party keeps assets in their own name, and jointly titled assets are divided evenly.

Special to the News

However, a party who is not the registered owner of an asset may claim an interest in the property through the legal concept of unjust enrichment or a constructive trust. In these cases, a party must demonstrate that although they are not a registered owner to the asset, they have contributed to the acquisition, maintenance or appreciation of the asset, entitling them to a share in the value. These cases are somewhat complex and depend heavily on the unique facts of each situation.

Canadian Blood Services is holding a community blood donor clinic in Stittsville on Wednesday, Oct. 21. This blood donor clinic will be held from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Holy Spirit Catholic School on Stittsville Main Street in Stittsville. All blood donations at community blood donor clinics held by Canadian Blood Services like this one are most appreciated because every minute of every day in Canada, someone needs blood and the only way that the blood is available when needed is through the generosity and caring of blood donors who willingly attend community blood donor clinics to donate blood. It often requires many units of blood to help just one patient. A car accident victim, for example, can need up to 50 units of blood which means 50 blood donations are needed just to help that one patient. Leukemia patients can need as many as eight units of blood a week as part of their treatment. Canadian Blood Services, which organizes these community blood donor clinics, is a national, not-for-profit charitable organization that manages the blood supply in all provinces and territories in Canada except for Quebec. A separate organization, Hema-Quebec, operates in the province of Quebec. Canadian Blood Services organizes more than 22,000 community blood donor clinics across Canada each year. It collects about 850,000 units of blood annually and then processes the blood into the components and products that are administered to thousands of patients each year through blood transfusions. Canadian Blood Services was created in 1998 as a successor to the Canadian Red Cross blood donation program and the Canadian Blood Agency. To book an appointment to give blood, visit www.blood. ca or call 1-888-2 DONATE (1-888-236-6283).

be presenting a travelogue on Antarctica at the Stittsville library branch. Registration can be done online at www.biblioottawalibrary.ca . On Tuesday, Nov. 3, from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m., personal budgeting will be the focus for a presentation by Gary Ruskyn of the Credit Counselling Society. Called “Budgeting 101,” the program will offer a six step approach to financial budgeting, allowing a person to take control

Prior to returning to Ontario and joining Allan Snelling LLP, Will was the managing partner of a full service law firm on Vancouver Island. He is experienced in family law, commercial and real estate matters, and all matters relating to wills and estates.

In terms of spousal support, a common law partner only has the potential entitlement to spousal support after three years of continuous cohabitation, or if there is a relationship of permanence and you have a child together. The amount of spousal support payable, if any, will depend on several factors, such as the income, assets, health and financial independence of each party. Again, the specific facts of each case are important. In most cases, it is important to understand your rights and liabilities, and to conduct yourself in a manner which will not create undue hardship or confusion upon the end of the relationship.

Richmond artist puts owl, ‘seven’ in paintings John Curry

john.curry@metroland.com

Richmond artist Elena Khomoutova always includes two features in her paintings, no matter what the subject. One is the image of an owl while the other is a representation of the number “seven.” The owl could be in a tree in a landscape scene or could be an outline randomly placed in the painting. The number “seven” could be seven of something, for instance, children in a painting or it could be the numeral “7” incorporated into the artist’s signature on the painting. In one painting showing Parliament Hill, the Peace Tower clock is showing seven o’clock. So there are numerous possibilities but both the owl and “seven” are there in some form in all of her paintings. The owl is meant to represent and convey wisdom while the number “seven” is meant to bring luck to the viewer. To identify where the owl and “seven” are in a painting, Elena writes a note on the back of the painting explaining where the two images are located in the painting. Elena also paints all of her paintings in the presence of an angel-shaped candle holder which she lights whenever she is painting. She uses this as a way to impart luck and joy to people through her art. She also gets inspiration in her painting from a pet budgie bird which is allowed to fly around her studio, sitting at times not only on various perches set up around the studio but also at times on her brush as she paints. The budgie’s name is “Joy” and the bird’s presence helps Elena convey that feeling in her paintings. Indeed, Elena’s art has been bringing joy to many around the world ever since 1995 when her artwork first appeared on UNICEF greeting cards. These cards with her

artwork on them have been distributed in 67 countries around the world over the years. And this exposure on the UNICEF cards led to approaches from Canadian greeting card companies and now both Elena and her husband Alexander Khomoutov, a photographer, are providing their art for greeting cards. This year alone, there are 19 different cards with their art being produced by three Canadian greeting card firms.

Alexander notes that providing images for greeting cards allows both himself and Elena to bring the joy of art to as large an audience as possible. He confirms that having the images on greeting cards has not led to any sales of the original artwork but that is fine with him and his wife. He says that bringing joy to more people through their art on the cards is reward enough for them. He says that the cards are not just regular

cards but rather each one is “a good luck energy card,” conveying good luck and positive energy to the recipient. And these cards with their artwork helps in spreading the art to everyone. Anybody can afford a card, Alexander says. Elena has done a number of paintings featuring hockey scenes. See ELENA, page 42

She was the official artist for the Ottawa Senators in the 1998-99 season, producing a painting showing hockey being played on the Rideau Canal which was used by the hockey club for promotional purposes. In that same season, she was commissioned by the Ottawa Citizen to do a painting featuring some of the Ottawa Senators and which was featured on a two-page spread in a special edition of the newspaper. She even put the faces of herself, her husband Alexander and some friends in the crowd around the players. Elena and Alexander are from Russia. Elena remembers being interested in art since she was about six years old, albeit just as a fun pastime in her youth. She eventually worked for a scientific journal publishing house but she wanted to do something more creative in art. In Russia, her husband Alexander worked as a scientist but loved photography which was a hobby for him at the time while Elena pursued her

art career. While in Russia, Alexander as a scientist came to the attention of the National Research Council here in Canada and he was invited to work at the NRC for six months. His time at the NRC kept getting extended and extended and eventually he and Elena went through the immigration process and became residents of Canada. In 2009, Alexander decided to follow his passion and became a professional photographer and digital artist. He now is totally focussed not only on promoting Elena’s work through their website www. LightFromArt.com but also in creating his own photographic art and writing books. He has just finished one book, not yet published, dealing with art and how art influences people. Elena currently has some of her art on sale at the Koyman Gallery in Ottawa, although the art there features just Ottawa scenes. She enjoys painting Ottawa scenes but she also enjoys painting works that are more spiritual in nature, focussed on joy and good luck. Elena admits that she some-

times gets ideas for her paintings from dreams. Indeed, she now keeps a notebook and pen beside the bed so that she can write down or sketch about the dream right away during the night. She began this after she found that sometimes she could not remember the dream if she waited until the morning. Alexander and Elena moved to Richmond partly due to Elena’s art as she wanted to have a spacious studio with big windows and lots of light. They found a house design that was perfect for this need with an ideal space for such a studio. The house required a larger lot such as those found in Richmond and it could only be built in Richmond, not in Kanata where they had lived for a number of years. So the house was built in Richmond and the rest is history, as Alexander and Elena love their house and the Richmond community. They find their neighbourhood quiet and peaceful with lots of good neighbours, including, if you can believe it, Santa Claus. Yes, that’s right, Santa Claus. See ALEXANDER, page 43


Alexander Khomoutov captures geese flying across Super Moon Continued from page 42

A neighbour has served as Santa Claus in the Christmas parade and Alexander has now even created a greeting card featuring a Santa Claus with sleigh and reindeer. It is a combination of digital art and a real-life photographic image of his Santa Claus neighbour. Alexander and Elena find people in Richmond very friendly and like many Richmond residents, they themselves enjoy walking or

biking in the community. “We started living in Richmond by accident but we now love that that accident happened,� Alexander says. Alexander recently had his camera in hand when the Super Moon and lunar eclipse happened. And he managed to get a photograph of a flock of geese flying across the moon’s image – a lucky happening! He is now going to make a print of this unique scene.

Fundraising for 200th anniversary Special to the News

John Brummell/Metroland

Chickens being cooked Richmond volunteer firefighters Hal Stewart, left, and Nelson Paquette, right, turn over a batch of chickens at the Richmond Firefighters’ annual chicken BBQ which was held last Saturday at St. John’s Anglican Church on Fowler Street in Richmond.

T R E N D S MAGAZINE

The celebration of Richmond’s 200th anniversary in 2018 is going to cost money. The Richmond 2018 Bicentennial Planning Committee is planning on raising over $100,000 in order to fund the celebrations. Some of these funds will come from corporate and business sponsorships and other funds will come from hopedfor municipal, provincial and federal grants. But an important component of this fundraising will be a “grassroots initiative� encouraging individual citizens, groups and organizations to contribute to the funding for the celebrations. This could be holding a raffle or a bake sale or a bottle drive or a BBQ or some other fundraising event. Donations will also be most welcome. It is never too early to start and this fundraising can begin at any time. When the funds are raised, simply take them to the Richmond TD Canada Trust branch at the Richmond Village Marketplace shopping

area and deposit them in the special Richmond Village Association (RVA) 2018 Celebration Account that has been opened at the branch. The RVA has opened this account with an initial $2,000 deposit and the RVA has taken on the responsibility of managing the funds raised for the Richmond 2018 Bicentennial Planning Committee. All of the funds raised will go to cover the costs related to the celebration. Any funds left over will go toward a legacy project related to Richmond’s 2018 anniversary. The nature of this legacy project has yet to be determined. The Planning Committee is already discussing activities to be held to celebrate Richmond’s 200th anniversary. The weekend of June 15-17, 2018 will be the main focus of many of these activities but there will be events also leading up to this gala weekend. Events being considered include a parade, fireworks, historical tours, a dance, concerts, family activities, a birthday cake and more.

Chiefs Chili Cook Off will choose best chili Continued from page 52

Dymon Storage, which is a major event sponsor, will once again this year be providing photos taken by Zoom Photograph free to all participants. The actual race sponsors are BMO Nesbitt Burns for the 2K Family Fun Run and Bushtukah for the 10K and half marathon runs. Participants will be able to enjoy a pre-race pancake breakfast thanks to Hudson Insurance and Enbridge Gas. In addition, McDonalds McCafe will be on site bright and early to serve up steaming coffee for participants. At the finish line, Saucony will be providing gifts for participants. And things don’t end when the runs are over. There’s the annual Chiefs Chili Cook Off in which the chiefs for the police, paramedics and fire department square off to determine which one has made the best chili. In addition, Jeff and Angela Robinson of Scrumptious Creative Catering in Stittsville will be providing chili for all of the participants and also spectators. The chili is include in the registration fee while spectators are welcome to make a donation. Last year over 900 pounds of chili was prepared, so you know that this is a popular feature of the event. Registration for this year’s 9 RUN RUN event closes this Sunday, Oct. 11 at www.9runrun.ca. Race kit pick up will take place at Bushtukah on Hazeldean Road in Stittsville on Thursday, Oct. 15 from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. and again on Friday, Oct. 16 from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. A food bank bag will be used for the race

kits, with participants being asked to return the food bank bag full of food on race day. To date over $100,000 has been raised by this 9 RUN RUN emergency services run for Do It For Daron, The Royal and youth mental health in the community. Funds raised through 9 RUN RUN support two key initiatives: “I It Just Me? Conversations About Youth Mental Health” and the Do It For Daron Mach-Gaensslen Chair in Suicide Prevention Research at The Royal. “Is It Just Me? Conversations About Mental Health” is an educational program that helps students understand how their thoughts and feelings affect their mental health. Students attending “Is It Just Me?” learn about mental health from a neuroscientist, a psychologist, an addictions counsellor and a young adult living with mental illness. Since 2011, over 6,000 high school, college and university students have attended “Is It Just Me?” The Do It For Daron Mach-Gaensslen Chair in Suicide Prevention Research at The Royal has as its aim to explore and create best practices to reduce the number of suicide attempts and completed suicides in Canada. This means building knowledge and working with health care providers, community organizations and families to translate this knowledge into real solutions to prevent suicide and the devastating impact which suicide has on Canadian families. Do It For Daron (DIFD) is a youth-driven initiative focused on raising awareness and inspiring conversations about youth mental health. It was created by the family and friends of Daron Richardson who lost her life to suicide. DIFD supports programs and initiatives aimed at transforming youth mental health.

Transit tax going up 2.5 percent Emma Jackson Metro Ottawa

OC Transpo is raising its transit tax 2.5 percent in 2016 as the transit operator faces rising costs and flat-lining ridership. An early budget report released Sept. 29 asks staff to craft a transit budget that finds $24.5 million in new money while limiting the transit tax increase to 2.5 per cent. Between the $9 million extra collected through that hike and another $6.9 million more coming from fares, OC Transpo will still have to find $8.6 million in ‘efficiencies’ to avoid going into deficit. That process has already started, according to transit commission chairman Coun. Stephen Blais. He said five management positions were cut this summer, and the system is “becoming

more efficient in how some of the routes operate.” But that hasn’t been enough to fend off a rising tide of extra costs. Insurance claims were much higher than budgeted in 2015, for example, and as warranties end on the city’s fleet of hybrid buses maintenance costs are rising, too. “In order to provide the same level of service doing the same work on the buses, we now have to spend more money,” Blais said. Blais said more details about OC Transpo’s savings plan will come to the finance committee as part of the draft budget. He skirted the notion the transit operator is considering service cuts. “We need to consider making sure we have an efficient and affordable system for the highest number of people that we can,” he said.

Terry Fox Run at A. Lorne Cassidy School It was Terry Fox Run day at A. Lorne Cassidy Elementary School in Stittsville last Friday. The school held three separate runs – one for primary students, one for junior students and one for intermediate

students. The Terry Fox Run is an annual non-competitive charity event held in numerous regions not only in Canada but around the world in commemoration of Canadian cancer activist Terry Fox and his Marathon of Hope and to raise

money for cancer research. Terry Fox, who was born in 1958 and died in June, 1981, undertook his cross-Canada run to raise money and awareness for cancer research in 1980 despite one leg having been amputated. Although the spread of his

cancer eventually forced him to end his run after 143 days and 3,339 miles, his efforts resulted in a lasting legacy as epitomized by the annual Terry Fox Run which was first held in 1981. The Terry Fox Run has grown to involve millions of

participants in over 60 countries and is now the world’s single day fundraiser for cancer research. Terry’s right leg was amputated in 1977 after he was diagnosed with osteosarcoma. In 1980, he began his Marathon of Hope, hoping to

raise one dollar from each of Canada’s 24 million people at that time. He ran the equivalent of a full marathon every day. He had become a national hero by the time that he reached Ontario after starting his run in Newfoundland.

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories Emerson was raging mad. He was thumping around the kitchen, arms waving, and his face was the colour of his flaming red hair. “It was right there, I tell ya,” he said, stabbing his finger on top of a pile of notepaper. “I accidentally folded down a corner of the sheet, and I put it into this stack of papers to smooth it out, and I haven’t touched it since. Someone has deliberately taken it out of there, and it sure wasn’t me.” It had darkened enough that night in late September, that Mother had lit the coal oil lamps and one sat at either end of the old pine table.   With the exception of Father, who as usual was sitting in front of the Findlay Oval in his rocking chair with his feet up on the oven door, we five children were occupied with our favourite pastimes.   Mother was working on her scrap books, Everett was making a new sling shot, Earl was carving some animal from a piece of smooth wood he had found, and Audrey was attempting to teach me once again how to make French knots on the end of a flour bag tea towel. Emerson had been working on yet another one of his crazy drawings of a building with glass walls and an elevator going up the outside.

Drama ensues over drawing

He had drawn and erased the one sheet, and he claimed he had accidentally turned down the top right corner. To straighten it out he had tucked into the big pile of sheets already full of his crazy ideas of how his buildings were going to look when he became famous. And now the sheet was gone.  Into thin air.   And he knew for a fact that one of us sitting around the table had taken it out of the pile for spite! “And it was my best drawing yet,” he roared. “I even had glass doors on the building.  This was going to be a building like no one has ever seen before, and someone in this very room has taken it right out of this pile of papers.”  And he closed his fist and banged it down on the pile of sheets before him. Nobody paid him any heed.  Emerson was always ranting about something, and it often had to do with his crazy drawings put to the paper tablets Mother bought for him on the onecent sale at the Rexall Drug Store in Renfrew.   “Hours of work I put into that drawing,” he said.  It was amazing to me how no one paid him any heed.  Father never took his eyes off the Ottawa Farm Journal, Mother continued to cut pieces out of the Philadelphia Enquirer and

paste them into her scrap book, and Everett and Earl kept right on doing what they were doing. Finally, Mother suggested he start at the top of the pile of papers and work his way to the bottom, just in case that particular sheet somehow got tucked into the stack.  Emerson said he had done that and the drawing was gone. “Gone, I tell you!  Gone!  And when I find out who took it out of this pile (and he pounded the stack again for good measure) he’ll pay dearly.” The evening was wearing on, and my fingers were stiff from holding the needle and the embroidery cotton trying desperately to master the French knot, which as far as I was concerned was a lost cause. I knew I would never be as clever as my sister Audrey, and trying to teach me the fine art of embroidery was a complete waste of her time. I forced a yawn and asked my sister if we could put the embroidery away, and maybe take a look through the brand new Eaton’s catalogue, which had just come. It was sitting on the top of the ice box, and this time of year I spent many a happy hour going through the thick catalogue working my way from the corsets in the front, right through to the cream separators in the back.

Audrey brought it to the table, put it in front of me, and told me to start where ever I wanted. I decided to flip to the Christmas section... toys...candies...girl’s pretty clothes. Well! What I found, smack in the middle of the catalogue was Emerson’s missing drawing! There it was, as large as life. Emerson saw it at the same time. He slapped his forehead, his face turned even redder if that was possible. And in a voice barely heard, admitted to putting it in the middle of Eaton’s catalogue to straighten out the page that had a corner fold. Gentle Earl demanded an apology, Everett put a wad of paper wet with spit in his new sling shot and hit Emerson dead on, Father said a swear word in German, Audrey rolled her eyes, and Mother closed her scrap book, let out a long sigh, and ordered us all to bed. Another exciting night at Northcote had come to an end. Interested in an electronic version of Mary’s books?

Special to the News

Researching a family tree and more specifically the challenges presented when searching for women in various databases will be highlighted at the upcoming October meeting of the Goulbourn Township Historical Society. Guest speaker at this meeting will be Lesley Anderson who has been involved in researching her own family tree for over 45 years. Ms. Anderson is well known for teaching classes, speaking at seminars and conferences and doing research for others, all on the subject of genealogy. She has been the Director of Education for the British Isles Family History Society and has worked for

Ancestry.ca for over eight years as a content specialist. She has done numerous presentations at genealogy branch meetings and at conferences across Canada. At this presentation on Saturday, Oct. 17, Ms. Anderson will be sharing specific tools and strategies used when searching for women in the Ancestry databases including ways to find specific females. Famous and interesting women will be highlighted. The presentation will be aimed at both new and experienced researchers alike. Both men and women should find the information presented useful as they follow the clues to their own family background.

The Rotary Peace Park in Stittsville becomes a reality with its grand opening on Thursday, Oct. 8. Located at Bell Park which is flanked by Stittsville Main Street, Cherry Drive and Fernbank Road in the south part of Stittsville, this Rotary Peace Park grand opening at 3 p.m. will be attended by city of Ottawa mayor Jim Watson, Rotary District Governor Claude LaLiberte, representatives of major sponsors of the project and students from local schools which provided artwork for some of the Peace Park’s features. This grand opening event will feature entertainment and light refreshments will be served. The highlight attraction in this Rotary Peace Park is a labyrinth which is 47 feet in diameter with the Rotary International logo in the middle. The site for this labyrinth was excavated last fall when other work done at the site include the installation of bases for a garbage receptacle and park benches. The bricks for the labyrinth have just recently been laid at the site. Also recently laid are the

bricks in a 75 foot long meandering walkway that leads from the parking lot at Bell Park to the labyrinth. Some of these four inch by eight inch bricks are engraved with personalized messages which a person or family could arrange by making a $200 donation to the Peace Park project. Among the corporate sponsors for this Rotary Peace Park are Tartan Homes which made a $15,000 donation and BMO Bank of Montreal which contributed $5,000 to the project. The Rotary Club of Ottawa – Stittsville also received $30,000 in funding from the city of Ottawa’s Better Neighbourhoods Program. The city of Ottawa will also be assuming ownership and ongoing maintenance responsibilities for this Rotary Peace Park since it is located on city-owned land. That’s why all facets of the project have been carried out according to the city of Ottawa’s standards and guidelines. The creation of this Rotary Peace Park with labyrinth in Stittsville is the realization of a longstanding dream by the Rotary Club of Ottawa- Stittsville. This is the first such peace park with a labyrinth within the city of Ottawa.

Duncan, Margaret Helen Margaret Helen Duncan died the morning of Saturday, October 3, 2015. She had struggled for the past few years with the challenges of dementia. At the end, she was a shell of her former self, enjoying the few small pleasures that are left to those getting from one day to the next in the small world in which very old and ill people are often forced to live. Helen’s parents, Peggy and Jack Duncan of Peterborough, Ontario, died many years ago as did her only sibling, her brother, Ronald Duncan (Mary), of London, Ontario. Born in Estevan, Saskatchewan (May 19, 1929), Helen moved to Peterborough, Ontario as a child. It was there she met and, in 1949, married Charles James Helmes of Sydenham, Ontario. Helen and Charlie lived in Peterborough and Belleville before moving to Ottawa in 1962. They had four children — Rick (Pamela), Geoff (Nancy), Melanie (Mike Shurben) and Kyle (Helene), but divorced after nearly three decades together. She never remarried and for the rest of her life pursued her own interests. She lived and worked for awhile in Ottawa before moving, first, to Smiths Falls, and, finally, to Carleton Place. She lived at the Carleton Place Manor for a few years moving subsequently to Stoneridge Manor, and passed the final months of her life in their care. The family would like to thank the nurses, doctors and other staff who helped her — and us — to make the last years of her life as pleasant as possible. Helen liked art and design and for a number of years worked at an art gallery and for a couple of years ran a couple of small dress shops in Ottawa. Like her mother, she was a talented artisan who took great pleasure and showed great skill at various crafts: knitting, sewing, needlepoint, brass, mosaic tile, etc. to create personal heirlooms for members of the family. She will be remembered with love and fondness by her children, grandchildren (Kevin, Graham, Jessica, Ian, Jim, Christine (Fady), Sarah and Leah) and great-grandchildren (Charlee, Sawyer, Owen, and Conner). A memorial service will be held Saturday, October 10, 2015 at the Alan R. Barker Funeral Home, 19 McArthur Avenue, Carleton Place. Visitation beginning at 1:00. Service at 2:30 in the chapel. Reception to follow. www.barkerfh.com

Quite a week for Stittsville’s Tysen Lefebvre John Curry

john.curry@metroland.com

Last week was quite a week for Tysen Lefebvre of Stittsville. The 15 year old flew to Toronto on Thursday, Oct. 1 to receive a Canadian Living Me to We Award at We Day, meeting some of the other amazing award winners as well. Then, back home last Saturday, he was part of the Four Wishes event held by MakeA-Wish Eastern Ontario and Hot 89.9 radio at the Aberdeen Pavilion at Lansdowne Park in Ottawa, a sold out event that featured four areas of activities, each representing one of the four types of wishes that Make-A-Wish grants. Tysen received his Canadian Living Me to We Award in the community category at We Day in Toronto on Thursday, Oct. 1 in recognition of his effort and work in trying to raise one million dollars for Make-A-Wish Eastern Ontario to help grant the wishes of children living with life threatening medical conditions. It was in 2012 that Tysen, who battles Pfeiffer syndrome which is a genetic disorder that affects bone growth, received his wish to meet his favourite celebrity, actor Adam Sandler. This life changing experience convinced Tysen that he should be giving back to his community and he established Tysen’s Mission to a Million to raise one million dollars for Make-A-Wish Eastern Ontario. This will allow Make-A-Wish Eastern Ontario to grant wishes for other children facing serious illnesses. Tysen’s Mission to a Million has now raised more than $330,000 to date, with over 30 wishes granted. As part of his Canadian Living Me to We Award, Tysen has received a $1,000 donation to a registered charity of his choice, a commemorative award and coverage in the Oct. 2015 issue of Canadian Living magazine. Last Saturday Tysen was at the second annual Four Wishes event at the Aberdeen Pavilion which attracted over 1,000 people. Hosted by New Hot 89.9 DJ’s Mauler, Jenni and Rush, the event featured the Capital City Garrison (Stars Wars) of the 501st Legion, the League of Superheros, Dino Project, Little Ray’s Reptiles, Long and McQuade Musical Instruments and the Ottawa Flashpoint Photo Booth. Gabriel’s Pizza was there to provide a pizza

lunch for everyone, all included in the admission price. Mascots from the Ottawa RedBlacks, the Ottawa Champions ball team and the Ottawa 67s were all at the event as well as some RedBlacks cheerleaders and Disney princesses. Mattel provided lots of toys for youngsters to try out and youngsters also had fun on a huge inflatable play structure with a slide. This Four Wishes event is meant to give people the opportunity to witness the hope, strength and joy that comes when a wish is granted. Proceeds from the ticket sales are going to Tysen’s Mission to a Million in support of Make-A-Wish Eastern Ontario. The event featured four areas of activities, each representing one of the four types of wishes that Make-A-Wish grants. These are “I wish to MEET superheroes;” “I wish to BE a paleontologist;” “I wish to HAVE a new play room;” and “I wish to GO to an ultimate dance party.” Youngsters at the event had the chance to interact with a 12 foot T-Rex; to take a shot at a Star Wars storm trooper; to play with cool toys and musical instruments; to receive dance lessons; and more. Tysen also “revealed” two granted wishes at the event. Twelve year old Ariane had been invited to sing at the event, performing the song “Let It Go” in French. After she sang, Tysen was involved in an elaborate “reveal” that involved projecting on the big screens on either side of the stage that she was having her wish granted. Her wish was to meet Elsa at Disney World and stay at the “Give Kids the World Resort.” This was the 33rd wish granted thanks to funding from Tysen’s “Mission to a Million” campaign. But things did not end there. Robin, 17, was invited on stage to play the “Iron Man” song on his old guitar. He is a huge Iron Man fan. But as he started playing, Tysen walked onto the stage escorting Iron Man himself. And then Robin was granted his wish, a brand new Carvin custom guitar along with a new amp. Another fantastic “reveal” that left the recipient very happy and excited. The mission of Make-A-Wish Eastern Ontario is to grant the wishes of children with life threatening medical conditions, giving

them hope, strength and joy. Since its inception in 1999, Make-A-wish

Tysen’s Mission to a Million campaign John Curry

john.curry@metroland.com

R0123384120

Tysen Lefebvre of Stittsville has now not only seen his Tysen’s Mission to a Million campaign fund over 30 wishes granted by MakeA-Wish Eastern Ontario but also has seen the “wish reveal” itself become more of an event. When Tysen had his own wish granted back in 2012, he recalls that several people from Make-A-Wish Eastern Ontario came with baskets but says that it was more in the nature of a delivery than a “reveal.” He admits that now, with him doing the reveal, it is now a much bigger thing, with the recipient being told about the granting of the wish in a more spectacular manner. For instance, a reveal at the “Hockey For Wishes” hockey marathon at the Bell Sensplex in July involved a number of the hockey players taking part in the reveal, along with Tysen. But making the “reveal” special is not something unique – this happens now at every reveal at which Tysen presides.

Sacred Heart High School in Stittsville, Tysen admits that he is surprised at how quickly his “Mission to a Million” campaign has taken off. This “Mission to a Million” campaign has a logo which is on the t-shirt that Tysen usually wears when he is on a “reveal” or at a fundraising event. He says that the design arose out of thin air, with elements like Adam Sandler’s dog and the Make-A-Wish logo. He said that he and his brother added some of their favourite colours to the logo. It was these ideas which formed the basis of the logo. Tysen says that he wants to learn more about golf, such as knowing the various terms related to the sport. His campaign recently received a big boost thanks to a fundraising golf tournament and he wants to know more about golf and its terminology so that when he is at such fundraising golf tournaments, he will be more familiar with the sport. Tysen says that he thinks that he might enjoy working for the Make-A-Wish Foundation in the future, noting that he now knows virtually everyone involved with Make-A-Wish and so it might work out well. Tysen’s trademark move now is a “thumbs up” sign. He says that he did it once for no particular reason but that it caught on and now he does it for every photograph as the “thumbs up” move has become something of his trademark. Tysen is happy that Make-A-Wish Eastern Ontario is now becoming well known, partially thanks to his “Mission to a Million.” He notes that there is not only more awareness now about Make-A-Wish but also that more wishes are being granted, reducing the waiting time for the child recipients.

Stephanie Robertson’s photographs on display at library John Curry

A selection of landscapes, florals and portraits, all the work of photographer Stephanie Robertson of Stittsville, is now featured on the Art Space Wall Gallery at the Stittsville branch of the Ottawa Public Library on Stittsville Main Street. There are 13 framed photographs on the main wall and another 13 framed but smaller photos in the glass display case that is associated with the Art Space Wall Gallery. Initially Stephanie had thought that she would feature photographs featuring eastern Canada in this exhibition but she ultimate decided to make it more diverse, including other photographs such as florals and a guitar portrait. Included among the photographs on display on the wall itself are scenes from Western Brook Pond, Cape Spear and Flower’s Cove in Newfoundland, from Digby Neck in Nova Scotia, from Cape Enrage in New Brunswick, from the Niagara area and even from right here in Stittsville, such as a photo of a heron at the pond at Paul Lindsay Park in Amberwood. In the display cabinet are three portrait photos, a set of three yellow tulip photos, photos of a dragonfly and a feather, and even a photo of a window at the Senate on Parliament Hill. Stephanie, who grew up in Kanata, developed a love of photography in her teens and has been honing her skills ever

since through both experience and education. With over 30 years of amateur, semi-professional and professional photography experience, Stephanie currently does portrait, garden and fine art photograph for clients across the west end

of Ottawa and beyond. Stephanie loves to capture the beauty of God’s creation in her photograph such as the natural beauty of a flower or a scenic vista. She has visited some of Canada’s most photogenic areas such as the Rock-

ies, Vancouver Island, the Saguenay region of Quebec, Newfoundland, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. In addition to her photography work, Stephanie also offers business, marketing, design and photograph services

to local businesses. She has a degree in Industrial Design from Carleton University as well as an MBA from the University of Ottawa, giving her an insight into the worlds of business and marketing. This exhibition of the pho-

tograph of Stephanie Robertson will be on display at the Art Space Wall Gallery at the Stittsville branch of the Ottawa Public Library until the end of October. It can be viewed at any time during the opening hours of the library branch.
