Preparing some traditional Christmas pudding in a giant pot in the kitchen at the Holy Spirit Catholic Church’s parish hall on Wednesday morning, Oct. 30 are Holy Spirit Catholic Women’s League (C.W.L.) members, from left, Marlene Lahey, Lois Desjardine, Shyla Rodericks, Teresa Cardeal, Donella Gabriele, Ann Ryan and Sheila Casagrande.

News - Take a giant pot, add lots of yummy ingredients, stir them all up and what do you eventually get – well, just the best tasting traditional Christmas plum pudding that you could imagine. This is what happens every year leading up to the annual Christmas bazaar and tea room that is happening at the Holy Spirit Parish Hall on Shea Road on Saturday, Nov. 16. Ladies of the Holy Spirit Catholic Women’s League

get together, at least half a dozen at a time, and create these plum puddings that the bazaar, now in its fourth year, has become famous for. Yes, they’re that good! The ladies get together in the kitchen at the Holy Spirit Parish Hall on three Wednesday mornings leading up to the bazaar, creating 30 servings of this Christmas pudding each time. And it’s not easy work as more and more ingredients are added into the giant pot and these ingredients have to be mixed thoroughly throughout the whole

pot. This requires a lot of strenuous hand-mixing and sometimes even a giant wooden ladle is used to make sure that the ingredients are all mixed up together. And what ingredients there are: flour and suet, of course, but also spices, mixed fruit, currants, raisins, brown sugar – lots of yummy, yummy things. We can’t tell you everything because the actual recipe, provided by C.W.L. member Gaye Lalonde, is a secret. See ANNUAL, page 5

News - They’re just small decorative items but now, thanks to an initiative by Eva von Jagow of Stittsville, they can play a role in feeding hungry children in Nunavut. And you can help in this endeavour by donating any used jewellery for a sale of such items at the Goulbourn Recreation Complex in Stittsville on Saturday, Dec. 7. Yes, that’s right – any jewellery that you might just have sitting around, no longer worn, can be recycled to others and in so doing, the funds raised can go to help fund a breakfast program at the Sakku School in Coral Harbour in Nunavut. The school, which offers kindergarten to grade 12, has 280 students. But this will not happen unless Eva von Jagow receives donations of jewellery to provide a wide selection of the Dec. 7 sale. Any type of jewellery will be welcomed and appreciated. It can be costume jewellery or even children’s jewellery. It doesn’t have to be fancy or decorative. Anything will be accepted and appreciated – brooches, rings, necklaces, earrings, bracelets – you name it and it will go in the sale. And just how will you get it to Eva who has set Friday, Nov. 29 as the deadline for accepting such donations, giving her a week to get it all organized and ready for the Dec. 7 sale.

Mozart music fills Gaia Java Coffee Company shop John Curry

News - There was a conversation at the Gaia Java Coffee Shop in Stittsville last Friday evening. Not that conversations at the Gaia Java shop are that unusual because, after all, it is a coffee shop where people go to have a coffee or latte and chat with a friend. But this was an unusual conversation last Friday because it took place not between two patrons, although there were plenty of such conversations that did take place, but rather because it was a conversation, you could say, that took place between the stringed instruments of the Crumble Quartet and the clarinet of Greg Young. This melodic conversation took the musical form of Mozart’s Clarinet Quintet, the last such concerto for string quintets composed by Mozart who was a recognized genius in blending the sounds of various instruments. And this is what happened with this “conversation” at the Gaia Java coffee shop’s Friday music evening last Friday, a musical blending par excel-

lence. There was musical conversation between the violins and the clarinet, between the viola and the clarinet, and the cello and the clarinet, all just like Mozart himself would no doubt have envisioned it as he was composing it in 1791, the same year in which he later died. This performance at the Friday music evening at the Gaia

Java coffee shop in Stittsville provided a taste of the musical offerings at a concert last Sunday afternoon at the Church of St. John the Evangelist at the corner of Elgin Street and Somerset Street in Ottawa presented by the Strings of St. John’s, an Ottawa-based string ensemble which includes all four members of the Crumble Quartet – violinists Margot

Lange and Julia Sandquist, viola player Mary Young and cello player Catherine Campbell. This concert featured the world premiere of Greg Young’s newly composed clarinet concerto, St. John’s Concertino, with the composer himself as the featured clarinetist. Last Friday’s performance

at the Gaia Java coffee company was the third appearance by the Crumble Quartet at the coffee shop but it was the first time that the quartet was joined by Greg Young on the clarinet. Mary Young of the Crumble Quartet is the sister of Greg Young. Greg Young, who is the director of the School of Music at Montana State University,


Performing Mozart’s “Clarinet Quintet” at the Friday music evening at the Gaia Java Coffee Company shop in Stittsville last Friday, Nov. 1 are, from left, Margot Lange, violin; Julia Sandquist, violin; Greg Young, clarinet; Mary Young, viola; and Catherine Campbell, cello.

is an accomplished musician, having performed as the principal clarinetist with the Bozeman Symphony and the Intermountain Opera Orchestra. He has toured as a concerto soloist in Europe, Africa and Asia as well as Brazil where he toured with the Kreutzer Trio and soprano Elizabeth Croy. He has a doctorate from the University of Michigan and has taught at various universities including the University of Prince Edward Island, Memorial University of Newfoundland and the University of Western Ontario. Dr. Young’s mother Jo Young lives in Stittsville. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, who was born in 1756 and died in 1791, was a prolific and influential composer, composing over 600 works, many of which are considered as elite compositions in the world of music. He is among the most popular of the composers of the socalled Classical Era of music. Mozart’s Clarinet Quintet or Clarinet Concerto was one of his final completed works before his death. It is notable for its interplay between the clarinet soloists and the accompanying strings.

Bat Girl, Supergirl and Alice in Wonderland at Kungfu Bistro Special to the News

Jewellery donations will help students Continued from page 1

Eva will gladly pick up any donations. Just email her at and this will happen. Or you can drop off your donation to the Goulbourn Museum at Stanley’s Corners, at city of Ottawa Stittsville ward councillor Shad Qadri’s constituency office at the Goulbourn Recreation Complex (open Monday 9 a.m.-2 p.m., Friday 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. and Saturday 9 a.m. – 1 p.m.) or at the TD Waterhouse office at the Kanata Centrum in Kanata. This idea came to Eva, a Sacred Heart High School student, last summer when she was helping her mother Karen organize her jewel-

lery and noticing that her mother had a number of pieces of jewellery that she no longer wore. Eva figured that other women would have jewellery in the same situation – just sitting there taking up space. So, Eva conceived the idea of collecting donations of such jewellery and then holding a jewellery sale to raise funds for a breakfast program at a school in Nunavut. She established a partnership with the Breakfast Club of Canada which let her choose the school to which the funds raised would go. At first, she picked a school in Grise Ford because was the most northerly school and hence would have the highest food costs.

Annual bazaar and tea room Continued from page 1

All we do know is that when it is all done, you will enjoy a Christmas pudding like no other. It’s spectacularly delicious. Once 30 servings are created at one of these Wednesday morning gatherings, then the ladies take some of them home to steam cook them for four hours. They are then packaged up in red or silver packaging and tied up with a bow that has attached to it information about two Christmas pudding sauce recipes that can be created to go with the pudding – a butterscotch sauce and also a vanilla sauce. Both just add to the pudding experience. The C.W.L. ladies made 30 of these traditional Christmas puddings for the initial bazaar four years ago. And they sold out in the blink of an eye. So, for the second year of the bazaar, the number of puddings made was increased to 60. Again, they quickly sold out as word had gotten around about how good these puddings are. So, last year the ladies made 90 of the puddings and, like Goldilocks might say about the final bed that she discovered in the bear’s

house, this seems to be just about right. That’s why another 90 are being made for this year’s bazaar. But, a word to the wise – you might want to arrive early near the 9 a.m. start time if you want to make sure that you get one of this year’s Christmas puddings. This annual bazaar and tea room, hosted by the Holy Spirit Catholic Women’s League, will run from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 16 in the parish hall at Holy Spirit Catholic Church on Shea Road in Stittsville. And there’s lots more to see and enjoy than just these now-renowned Christmas puddings. For the first time this year, the tea room has been named. It’s being called the Sugar Plum Tea Room, a name which evokes thoughts of the Sugar Plum Fairy in Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker ballet and particularly of the “Land of Sweets.” And, indeed, the tea room will be something of a land of sweets with a delicious lunch available. The bazaar will also feature handmade crafts and Christmas decorations for sale. And lots of home baking will also be available. Everyone is welcome to attend and enjoy this bazaar and tea room, a great pre-Christmas event.

December programs at library Special to the News

News - Coming up in December are a couple of fun events related to Christmas. There will be a Grinch puppet show presented on Saturday, Dec. 7 at both 11 a.m. and again at 1 p.m. This show is geared for youngsters aged 3 to 7 years of age. The show is a puppet version of the classic story about the Grinch trying to steal Christmas. Another fun Christmasthemed event will happen on

Wednesday, Dec. 18 at 6:30 p.m. when a “Christmas Fun” program will be presented. There will be seasonal stories, songs, a movie and a craft. This is meant to be a program for the whole family to enjoy. Both of these December programs at the Stittsville branch of the Ottawa Public Library – the Grinch puppet show and the Christmas Fun program – require pre-registration. It can be done on the Ottawa Public Library’s website at or by dropping into the Stittsville branch of the Ottawa Public Library. Registration is free. And besides these special programs, don’t forget about the regular ongoing programs that take place at the Stittsville library branch. Other regular programs at the Stittsville library branch include the Stittsville Library Book Club, a French conversational speaking skills program and a Stittsville Creative Writing Group.

But recently the Sakku School in Coral Harbour in Nunavut contacted the Breakfast Club for support. Eva decided that any school reaching out for such help is in obvious need and so she decided that this year the money she raises in the Dec. 7 jewellery sale would go to Sakku School in Coral Harbour. Eva notes that food prices in Nunavut are very high. For instance, a head of cabbage can cost $28 and a bag of applies can cost $15. Junk food happens to be cheaper than fresh and healthy food which explains the health problems that plague youth in the North including many cases of type 2 diabetes. *

Eva believes that every child, no matter where, should be able to attend school with a full stomach. She is hoping that with her Dec. 7 jewellery sale, a breakfast program at Sakku School will be able to be funded for a whole year. But whether this happens depends on how many pieces of donated jewellery that she receives and then on how many patronize the sale on Saturday, Dec. 7. The sale, to be called “All That Glam,” will take place at the Goulbourn Recreation Complex on Saturday, Dec. 7 from 8 a.m. to 12 noon. All of the proceeds from the sale will go to funding the breakfast program at Sakku School in Coral Harbour in Nunavut.

Just do it, for art’s sake


t’s time the city put its full weight behind the Arts Court expansion after patching together funding to get the long-running project off the ground. The expansion will now cost the city $34 million. The federal government was asked to pitch in $9 million to go along with $6 million contributed by the province – money originally allocated for a performing arts centre on Elgin Street before those plans fell through – but declined to help out. The city has now approved an extra $8.2 million to make up for the federal share. Mayor Jim Watson is enthusiastic about the project, saying it’s a rare opportunity to build this type of infrastructure in the downtown core. “There was a strong desire certainly on my part to see that we invest in a significant facility for arts and culture in the downtown core,� he said. This project is a boon to the arts community, and will provide space to nurture and promote creative endeavours. It has the potential to not just help the Ottawa arts scene, but to also attract artists from outside the capital to what should be a wonderful new facility. But the city needs to take one further step to help the Arts Court reach its full potential: foot the whole

bill. As it stands, the current Arts Court tenants will be on the hook for $3.2 million of the expansion cost. While they may be happy to raise the money in exchange for the improved facilities, couldn’t that money be put to better use by those tenants? That sum – $3.2 million – is no small change in the artistic world. It could go a long way toward making art, rather than paying for equipment and fixtures for the expanded facility. Why then isn’t the city just coming up with another $3.2 million? There was money allocated in the budget for a great many things, a budget featuring the lowest property tax increase of the current council term at 1.9 per cent. Adding an extra few million wouldn’t have changed that amount in any noticeable way. The argument could be made that if the tenants have a stake in paying for the expansion, it will make for a stronger partnership. The tenants already have a significant stake in the project: they were involved at every step of the planning process so far. There’s no reason to believe they would all of a sudden take such a small gesture by the city for granted. In light of multi-billion dollar transit visions, significant stadium renewals and extensive road renovations, surely the city can come up with a few extra million to help a worthwhile arts project.


Taking a small risk to right the wrongs of the world


ame 3 ended on a play that had never been seen before in a baseball World Series: a St. Louis Cardinals runner thrown at home plate was called safe because it was ruled that he had been obstructed by a Boston Red Sox player. A terrible ruckus ensued but the call stood. The run the umpires allowed to count was the winning run in the game. Even people who were delighted that Boston lost were a bit chagrined at the call. There had been no intent to obstruct (although that turned out to be irrelevant). More important, it just seemed like an unfortunate way for a game that had been exciting and well-played to end – with an umpire’s interpretation of an obscure rule. No one was really happy about it – although it could safely be said that the Red Sox’ unhappiness exceeded that of the Cardinals. But since these were professional players with professional umpires and a professional rule book, there was no alternative, no going back. Which is too bad, because if the game had been played by little kids, the outcome would have been much more satisfactory. When little kids play games, as memory serves, a controversial play such as that one would spark an intense argument, but there

Therefore, the kids would fall back on a tried-and-tested solution: “Take it over,� someone would say, and they would all agree on that. The play would be repeated, probably with an outcome that no one could argue about and that would be that. That methodology survives to this day and is not reserved for children. Adult players of games such as tennis will sometimes use it, when there is no agreement on whether a ball was in or out. “Play it again,� someone will suggest, and they will. It’s a good solution: the game is won or lost without the bitterness of controversy. And it makes you wonder whether “take it over� might usefully be applied to other aspects of life.

Take the Senate. Please. Suppose Nigel Wright could have said “take it over� after writing Mike Duffy the cheque. That would have been better for him and the prime minister, if not for Mike Duffy. Going back even earlier, the prime minister might have wanted to say “take it over� after making the original appointment of Duffy to the Senate. And going back even further, the Fathers of Confederation might, in retrospect, have wanted to say “take it over� after creating the Senate in the first place. A lot of work has to be done on this concept, no matter how useful it might seem on the surface. How many take-it-overs should any one person be allowed? Under what conditions might “take-it-over� be accepted or rejected? And, inevitably, is “take it over� a federal or provincial responsibility? Further, there is a need for a cultural shift, as people learn to shed their winner-take-all mentality and accept the notion that a defeated or hideously embarrassed person deserves another chance. But once we got over the initial awkwardness, we might be pleasantly surprised at the number of improved results in our day-today living and the life of our governmental

institutions. Now, you have to be careful with this. As readers of Stephen King will know, taking it over does not always produce the best result. In his novel 11/22/63, King’s protagonist journeys back in time with the intention of preventing the assassination of John F. Kennedy. Along the way he prevents other small mishaps from happening, and this version of taking it over causes all sorts of unintended calamities. Still, it might be worth the risk if it could prevent the Senate scandal, not to mention the Senate itself, as well as the obstruction call at third base.

Letter: Proposed Energy East pipeline Book & bake sale Editor: This letter to the editor is in response to a letter to the editor about concerns regarding the proposed Energy East pipeline, written by Ish Sikaneta and Tinda Sebe-Sikaneta of Stittsville, as well as to an article written by John Curry of the Stittsville News published on Oct. 17, 2013. The couple who wrote the letter has a litany of concerns about oil pipelines and I would like to provide readers with the facts about TransCanada’s proposed Energy East pipeline and our commitment to safe and responsible transportation of oil products. The Energy East pipeline will be a technologically advanced pipeline and involves converting 3,000 kilometers of natural gas pipeline to oil service and building 1,500 kilometers of new pipeline, mainly in Quebec and New Brunswick. Currently refiners in Eastern Canada refine up to 700,000 barrels per day of which 86 percent is imported oil from foreign countries. The primary purpose of the Energy East project is to safely provide Eastern Canada’s refineries with a variety of crude oil from Western Canada, allowing them to eliminate their reliance on more expensive crude oil imported from overseas and to source their oil domestically. This will provide eastern refineries with a more competitive price for their oil and opportunities for job and investment growth. TransCanada has safely and successfully converted natural gas pipelines in the past. The most recent example was the conversion of Line One of the original Mainline for the Keystone Pipeline which has safely delivered more than 450 million barrels of

oil to the United States since it began operating three years ago. The letter by Mr. Sikaneta and Ms. SebeSikaneta points out that there have been leaks on this pipeline. However, I would like to specify that the small number of incidents have had nothing to do with the integrity of the pipe itself. They all occurred at our pump stations and other above-ground facilities, designed to capture and contain oil on our property, and have mostly been related to leakage from small-diameter fittings and seals during maintenance work. They have all been cleaned up with no environmental impact. Although a well maintained pipeline can last indefinitely, the existing 36 inch pipe portion of the Stittsville line will be replaced with a new 42 inch pipe to fit with the rest of the oil pipeline. As with any construction project, Energy East will also meet all relevant CSA standards, including being able to withstand any level of seismic activity in the Ottawa area as well as across all portion of the pipeline. The likelihood and level of seismic activity will be considered during detailed engineering studies of the line. Moreover, there were important concerns expressed in both pieces about third-party inspections of the line. TransCanada will comply with the National Energy Board’s Regulation 54. Consequently, during construction, a third party will conduct a NonDestructive Examination (NDE) to inspect the welds. We will then conduct an audit on the NDE results to ensure they meet code and specification requirements. Furthermore, it will be a combination of TransCanada employees and external contractors

or consultants hired directly by us who will inspect the pipeline construction. The National Energy Board will also conduct its own independent inspections of the pipeline during construction. Our construction standards are the highest in the industry and we have an industry leading safety record to provide it. In 2012 alone, TransCanada invested one billion dollars in our infrastructure safety and integrity program which includes pro-active inspection and maintenance programs to protect our pipelines and energy facilities. During our more than 60 years of operation, we have earned a reputation for delivering energy safely and efficiently. As for concerns about natural gas supply in the Ottawa area, TransCanada will ensure that even after conversion of a portion of its natural gas Mainline to oil service, we will continue to meet our firm natural gas contractual obligations. We will also work to ensure sufficient new capacity is added to our system to accommodate customers requiring capacity over and above what the firm capacity they currently contract for is. The Energy East pipeline will transport a variety of crude oils, including diluted bitumen. Some say incorrectly that it is different than regular crude oil in that it does not float in water and is more difficult to clean up. In fact, diluted bitumen has similar characteristics and behaves the same way as conventional crude oils which float in still, slowmoving and fast water. Crude oil can sink if it is allowed to weather and mix with dirt over time, making a swift response to a spill in water critical. See LETTER, page 10

Familiar songs mixed with old favourites and more at luncheon John Curry

News - Lots of familiar songs resounded through the clubhouse at the Glen Mar Golf and Country Club on Fernbank Road west of Stittsville at the Friendship Club’s monthly luncheon on Wednesday, Oct. 30. The musical offerings came from the Richmond entertainment duo of Doug and Pam Champagne who sang not only a couple of Elvis Presley hits like “Return to Sender” and “Don’t be Cruel,” but also touched on other golden oldies by such names as Johnny Cash, the Everly Brothers, Roger Whittaker, Jim Groce and Merle Haggard. With Doug singing lead and playing the guitar and Pam playing her keyboard with all of background instrumentation it provides, the duo played the “Tennessee Waltz,” the most requested country waltz tune of all time and one of the official songs of the state of Tennessee since 1965. The song was initially released by country music legend Cowboy Copas in 1947 but really became popular when Patti Page released her version in 1950. And if a waltz was not your dance tune of choice, Doug and Pam also offered the rollickin’ “Let’s Twist Again,” Chubby Checker’s 1961 follow-up hit to his 1960 song “The Twist.” “Let’s Twist Again” went on to capture a Grammy Award for best rock and roll solo vocal performance for Chubby Checker. But Doug and Pam mixed up their musical offerings at this hour-long performance at the Friendship Club, doing a number of old favourites such as the 1939 song “Your Are My Sunshine” (a singalong version with Pam

Doug and Pam also performed “Today I’m Gonna Try to Change The World,” a 2010 song by Scottish-born Canadian country music artist Johnny Reid. In his introductory remarks for the song, Doug called it a beautiful song that they had recently received a request to sing while performing at a retirement residence. This was not the only song by a Canadian country music artist that was performed by Doug and Pam at this Friendship Club luncheon. Doug also sang “Windship,” the 1981 song that was one of the biggest hits for Canadian country music star the late Terry Carisse who was named Canadian Country Music male vocalist of the year six times in a career that saw him inducted into both the Ottawa Valley Country Music Hall of Fame and the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame. No performance by Doug and Pam would be complete without hearing at least one of JOHN CURRY/METROLAND their iconic tribute songs such as “The Legacy” dedicated to the heroes of 9-11, “We Wear Gloria Stewart, centre of The Friendship Club thanks the Club’s entertainment duo at its Red” dedicated to Canada’s soldiers, “Fallen luncheon at the Glen Mar Golf and Country Club on Fernbank Road west of Stittsville on Heroes” as a tribute for firefighters and “The Wednesday, Oct. 30, namely Pam Champagne, left, and Doug Champagne, right.

Letter: TransCanada wants safe and reliable pipelines Continued from page 9

It is also one of the reasons for which TransCanada will initiate its Emergency Response Plan and ensure its personnel, local emergency responders and contract resources are quickly on-site to respond to such an event. With Canadian crude oil production expected to grow to six million barrels per day by 2025, the Energy East pipeline is one solution to ensuring that vital infrastructure is in place to safely and reliably meet the growing North American oil demand. The advantage of Energy East is that almost 70 percent is already

in the ground and of the remaining 30 percent, over half would parallel existing rights-of-way. All this will reduce the project’s environmental impact. No one has a stronger interest than TransCanada does in making sure that our pipelines are designed, constructed and operated safely and reliably for the benefit of all Canadians. We invite the public to obtain more information by visiting our website at or by calling 1-855-895-8750. Philippe Cannon Energy East pipeline project TransCanada Corporation

‘A Garland of Carols’ concert on Dec. 1

News - A garland of tinsel is common on Christmas trees, adding a special flourish to the spirit of the season. And just like a Christmas tree is wrapped in a tinsel garland to convey the Christmas spirit, so too the upcoming Christmas concert presented by the West Ottawa Ladies Chorus under the direction of Robert Dueck of Stittsville will be wrapped up in Christmas tunes. Indeed, that’s why the concert has been named “A Garland of Carols.” And this “garland of carols” will be delivered not only by the West Ottawa Ladies Chorus but also by a bevy of guest musicians that you will just not want to miss. One of these guests will be tenor soloist Rory McGlynn who will sing “The Birthday of a King” and “O Holy Night.” He will also join the West Ottawa Ladies Chorus in singing “Gesu Bambino” which has both soloist

sections and chorus/soloist sections. Rory is a professional tenor who has sung with Opera York, Opera in Concert, Opera Jeunesse and the Toronto Operetta Theatre, performing around the world including in the United States, Ireland, England, China and Belgium. He is currently artistic director and cofounder of The Capital City Opera, a new opera company in the area. But Rory is just one of the guest musicians who will be adding their talents to this “Garland of Carols” being presented on Sunday, Dec. 1 by the West Ottawa Ladies Chorus. The full Trinity Hilltop Handbell Choir under the direction of David Chin will be performing at the concert. But this is not the only handbells that you will get to hear and enjoy at this concert. Two new handbell ensembles under the direction of Stuart Belson of Stittsville will also be performing at the concert. The Trin-


Members of the new Trinity Handbell Quartet which will be performing in the upcoming Christmas concert of the West Ottawa Ladies Chorus on Sunday, Dec. 1 are, at the front, Rachel Kuhl, left, and Danielle Carrie, right, and, at the back, Amy Sirotek, left, and Martin Edwards, right.

ity Handbell Quartet is an ensemble of four handbell ringers who are also members of the larger Trinity Hilltop Handbell Choir. Playing in a smaller ensemble requires the musicians to employ different skills than those required when ringing with a full handbell choir. The four players must ring 37 bells of a three octave set of handbells. This Trinity Handbell Quartet will play “See Amid the Winter’s Snow” and “Carol of the Bells” at the concert. The other new handbell ensemble is the Bella Duetto Ensemble composed of two ringers, Erica Heiber and Hadiya Huiler. They will also use all 37 bells in playing their two selections at the concert, one of which will be the contemporary tune “Jingle Bell Rock” with the other being Mozart’s “Twinkling Variants.” Other guest musicians at this “A Garland of Carols” will include Ann Reilly on percussion, Sandra Allan on cello and Christine Ritchie on trumpet. And even before the concert starts at 3 p.m., there will be Christmas music filling the St. Paul’s Anglican Church on Young Road in Kanata just north of Hazeldean Road as Christine Ritchie on trumpet and West Ottawa Ladies Chorus accompanist Bonnie MacDiarmid will be providing a selection of Christmas music prior to the start of the concert as the audience waits for its start. This “A Garland of Carols’ Christmas concert presented by the West Ottawa Ladies Chorus will take place on Sunday, Dec. 1 at 3 p.m. at St. Paul’s Anglican Church on Young Road north of Hazeldean Road in Kanata. Tickets are available now at the Gaia Java Coffee Company shop at the Stittsville Shopping Centre (Shoppers Drug Mart plaza) on Stittsville Main Street in Stittsville and at Domenic’s Music Store at 444 Hazeldean Road in Kanata. Tickets are $15 each for adults. There are a limited number of free admission tickets available for children aged 12 and under. Tickets will also be available at the door on the day of the concert.

Remembrance Day November 11th, 2013 marks the 95th anniversary of the official end to the Great War. Much has changed in those 95 years, especially in the way we receive our news. Today, we receive even the most minor news story instantaneously, in a variety of ways from all over the world. However, in 1918, when the news broke out that the First World War had come to an end, the fighting still continued on the Western Front. The armistice was signed at 5:10am, yet the official ceasefire wouldn’t come until 11:00am. In that time, an estimated 10,000 soldiers lost their lives. Private George Lawrence Price of the Canadian Infantry was the last Canadian, and Commonwealth soldier, to be killed in World War I, at 10:58am. On November 11th, we remember Private Price and all those members of our armed forces who were lost in the line of duty while serving our country. Remembrance Day services take place, this year, on November 10th in Kars, North Gower and Munster and on November 11th in Richmond and Manotick. The Kars ceremony takes place at 11:15am in front of Kars on the Rideau Public School. The North Gower ceremony takes place at 12:45pm in Horace Seabrook Park. The Munster ceremony is held at 2:00pm at the War Memorial in the Munster Union Cemetery. The November 11th ceremonies both take place at 11:00am; one at the cenotaph in Dickinson Square in Manotick and the other in Richmond Memorial Park.

On November 7th, a Staff Report will come before the Agriculture & Rural Affairs Committee that recommends the refusal of draft approval of the subdivision application for 6335 and 6350 Perth Street. This is the Caivan application on the northern portion of the Western Development Lands. The rationale for refusal, as laid out in the Staff Report is as follows: the approval of the draft Plan of Subdivision and Zoning By-law amendment are premature until such time as: the issues relating to the overall stormwater management solution for the Western Development Lands are resolved; the Environmental Assessment is complete for the stormwater management; the drainage outlet matters are resolved; the subdivision layout is addressed; and the proposal for the financial plan relating to servicing is accepted. I will provide further updates as we move forward.

Magic in Village Square thanks to pumpkins John Curry

News - Village Square Park in the heart of Stittsville became a magical place last Friday evening. The magic started when carved pumpkins started being delivered to this site of Stittsville’s first-ever Pumpkin Parade at 4 p.m. Slowly as more and more pumpkins arrived, growing to almost 200 by the time that the Pumpkin Parade wrapped up at 8:30 p.m., the magical feeling enveloping the place mounted. The carved pumpkins were set up on both sides of a winding pathway in the park, so those who turned out to see the carved creations of their friends, neighbours and fellow Stittsville citizens could walk along viewing pumpkins on both left and right. And what carved pumpkins there

were! There was one carved pumpkin with a smaller pumpkin in its mouth; one wearing a witch’s hat; one featuring a skull and crossbones; a three-pumpkin high one depicting the human skeleton; one with a tinfoil crown; another three-pumpkin creation which formed a spider like creature, with small branches representing the spider’s legs; one carved like the Death Star of Star Wars fame, not moon-sized like in the movies but rather pumpkin sized; one with a black cat carved in a circle; and on it went. There were no two alike and they were in all sizes and shapes, even several white pumpkins. And while there were many with the traditional eyes, nose and teeth-grin, no two were similar. Each had its own individual appearance and appeal.



The real magic really happened after 5:30 p.m. when, with descending darkness, lights were placed in all of the pumpkins. Suddenly, these carved pumpkins, already amazing, became jack ‘o lanterns, illuminated by their internal lights – a magical scene if there ever was one. One jack o’ lantern pumpkin is eye-catching; a group of well over 100, all lined up with their carved faces lit up in the darkness, well that’s captivating – a true magical moment. Many took the opportunity to enjoy this magical moment, visiting Village Square Park and taking in this inaugural Stittsville Pumpkin Parade happening on the day after Halloween. Those viewing the pumpkins had an opportunity to vote for a favourite. Erin MacKenzie won in the age 15 and over category for her Death Star

creation which took her five hours to carve. Jessica Parker won in the age 14 and under category. Two tickets to an Ottawa Senators game was the prize in the age 14 and under category. Prizes in the age 15 and over category included ones from Kungfu Bistro of Stittsville, Saairse Spa (one organic re-hydrating facial treatment), Suvida Health (one hour of nutrition consumption plus $40 worth of supplements), Mikel D. Mallett (four one-hour reiki sessions with this wellness practitioner) and Innovations Hair Studio ($20 gift certificate). City of Ottawa Stittsville ward councillor Shad Qadri, who was present at this inaugural Stittsville Pumpkin Parade and who, along with his staff, helped organize the registration of the pumpkins for judging and helped set up the pumpkins in their

pathway configuration, proclaimed that it was a great event and would be an even bigger show next year. He thanked Stittsville resident Trevor Eggleton for coming up with the great idea and for helping promote and organize it. Trevor Eggleton knew that some other communities had organized such a post-Halloween event like this Pumpkin Parade and he wanted to see Stittsville have one as well as an opportunity for people in the community to show off their pumpkin carving skills. Trevor and his young family moved to Stittsville because of its small town and community feel. He feels that an event like this Stittsville Pumpkin Parade will help maintain this community feel for Stittsville’s families even as the community grows.

Hydro Ottawa joins Councillor Qadri to celebrate St. Daniel School mural In September, students at St. Daniel School gave a makeover to the fence surrounding Hydro Ottawa’s transformer station near Woodroffe Avenue and Baseline Road. This new mural, painted on the cement wall which backs on to the school yard, was officially unveiled at a heart-warming ceremony held at the school on October 25th. The learning mural was created by artist Nicole Bélanger and depicts children enjoying sports and recreation throughout the four seasons. Funding for the project was provided by the City of Ottawa/Crime Prevention Ottawa Paint It Up! youth engagement mural program. Councillor Shad Qadri, Chair of the Board for Crime Prevention Ottawa, joined Hydro Ottawa staff to celebrate the mural with students, parents and teachers. The painting at St. Daniel School is part of a larger initiative to introduce outdoor classrooms, trees for shade and other natural spaces to facilitate learning, playing and socializing for students.. The process of planning, designing and creating the mural with students, teachers, parents and the community at large was a great kick-off to the school’s greening project and will build interest, excitement and pride in the school yard.

Husky Howler: Halloween costumes, upcoming musical ‘CATS’ Eva von Jagow Special to the News

Well, did you see any odd creatures sauntering up to the doors of Sacred Heart Catholic High School in Stittsville last week? We had some zombies, a few Supermans and even a pack of minions. Dressing up for Halloween is always a must for students and even most of the teachers participate. A costume contest organized by student council was hosted by Stephanie Carlucci, the deputy head girl. Those in the best costumes were invited to the stage and students cheered for their favourite costume. It was a howling success! The cast and crew of the musical “CATS” are preparing and anxiously waiting for open-

ing night on Wednesday, Nov. 27. Emily Pilon, who plays the role of Munkustrap, the narrator, admits to being excited for this upcoming production. “It’s probably the biggest and most profound show that Sacred Heart has done to date,” Emily says. “all the work that goes on behind the scenes is mind-blowing.” “People should definitely come to see CATS if they are looking for some great entertainment,” she says. “We have been working tirelessly to provide a night of surprises, thrills, heart-wrenching scenes and laughter to our audience.” Everyone in the community is welcome to attend and enjoy the show’s magic. It’s a show that “has a little something for everybody,” Emily says.

The show will be presented on Wednesday, Nov. 27, Thursday, Nov. 28 and Friday, Nov. 29 at 7 p.m. and again on Saturday, Nov. 30 at 1 p.m. There will be a lot of talent on display for this production of CATS, which is a musical composed by Andrew Lloyd Webber, based on “Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats” by T.S.

Eliot. You know that it is good not only because it won the Tony Award for Best Musical but also because it ran for 18 years on Broadway (1982-2000) and also 21 years in London, both setting records. It is the second longest-running show in Broadway history and has been performed around the world.


Dressed up as minions from the animated movie “Despicable Me” for Halloween costume time at Sacred Heart Catholic High School in Stittsville last week are students, from left, Riley McKenna, Jenn DuPuy, Daniella Link, Kaity Campbell, Erin Sauve and Ashton Marshall.

Sports - The road to Rochester, New York led to an Empire State Cup championship for the Stittsville Major Atom Rams. The Rams travelled to the Empire State Showdown Tournament which ran from Friday, Oct. 25 through Sunday, Oct. 27 in Rochester where they competed in the Squirt “A” division of the tournament. But winning the championship proved to be tough as the Rams had to fight off a concerted effort by the Barrie Colts including a sixth attacker as the game wound down to emerge with a 3-2 victory and the Empire State Cup championship. This championship game on Sunday, Oct. 27 saw both teams, the Stittsville Rams and the Barrie Colts, go into the game with perfect records of four wins and no losses in the tournament. Both teams had allowed very few goals against in their previous games, so you knew that it was probably going to be a low-scoring championship game. Both goalies were tested early and often as both teams had their offenses on full throttle. It was 1-1 at the end of the first period. The Rams managed to go up 2-1 in the second period but the Colts scored early in the third period to deadlock the game at 2-2. The Rams managed to score with only 3:10 left in the game, setting the stage for the dramatic final minutes when the Colts attacked, including pulling the goalie. But the Rams held strong and emerged with a 3-2 victory and the championship. The Rams had gotten to this championship game thanks to four straight victories. On Friday, Oct. 25, the Rams played two games, facing the Ajax Knights and then the Toronto Eagles. The Rams were down 2-1 early on against the Ajax Knights but scored three unanswered goals in the third period to win by a 4-2 score. The Rams soared against the Toronto Eagles, going up 4-0 after just one period. The Rams ended up winning the game 7-1. On Saturday, Oct. 26, the Rams faced the Pickering Panthers. With steady defence and solid goaltending, the Rams tamed the Panthers, winning a second straight game by a 7-1 score. On Sunday morning, Oct. 27, the Rams were up early for a game against the Skylands Kings from New Jersey. After a scoreless first period, the Rams started the scoring early in the second period. The Rams ended up blanking the Skylands Kings 7-0 to advance to the championship game with a perfect record of four straight wins. This victory in this Empire State Showdown Tournament in Rochester, N.Y. was the second tournament victory of the season for the Stittsville Major Atom Rams.

Poole Creek, Feedmill Creek open house Special to the News

News - Poole Creek and Feedmill Creek in Stittsville will be the focus at a public open house being held by the Mississippi Valley Conservation Authority (MVCA) on Thursday, Nov. 14 in Stittsville. The open house is to reveal the draft flood plain mapping along Poole Creek and also

along Feedmill Creek which have just been completed by the MVCA. This mapping has identified flood prone areas along these creeks. Both Poole Creek and Feedmill Creek flow through Stittsville. Poole Creek begins in the wetland west of Stittsville and flows through Stittsville, going under Stittsville Main

Street just south of Beverly Street and then continuing eastward, going through the Amberwood Village golf course before flowing under Hazeldean Road near Sweetnam Drive and then proceeding northeastward to empty into the Carp River. Feedmill Creek also empties into the Carp River after beginning west of Carp Road

and north of Hazeldean Road. It flows under the Carp Road at the Timbermere subdivision and continues eastward before crossing under Highway 417 just west of Huntmar Drive and then emptying into the Carp River. Members of the public are being encouraged to attend this open house to provide comments on the draft flood

plain mapping. This year the MVCA has completed the first phase of a five year commitment to undertake flood risk mapping studies on water courses in the city of Ottawa under MVCA jurisdiction. The MVCA has jurisdiction over the Poole Creek and Feedmill Creek watercourses since both drain into the Carp

River which comes under the watershed guidance of the MVCA. Conservation Authorities use such flood plain mapping to administer the use and treatment of hazardous lands. The public open house on Thursday, Nov. 14 will run from 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. in the hall at the Johnny Leroux Stittsville Community Arena in Stittsville. For more information about this meeting, please call 613253-0006.

Legal opinion says not much chance for judicial review Special to the News

News - A judicial review of the provincial approval of the Environmental Assessment for a new landfill at Waste Management’s Carp Road site would appear unlikely now in view of a legal opinion about such a judicial review obtained by the city of Ottawa. This opinion, released by the city last Friday, states that “an application for judicial review based on the alleged non-compliance with the approved ToR (Terms of Reference) in this case will in all likelihood be unsuccessful. We consider the probabilities of success in such a proceeding to be quite low.” The opinion was expressed in an opinion signed by lawyer Benoit M. Duchesne of the legal firm Heenan Blaikie. In addition, Mr. Duchesne places the potential costs of such legal action as anywhere $125,000 to $265,000. In an accompanying memo to this legal opinion, city of Ottawa clerk and solicitor Rick O’Connor recommends to council that the city enter a “collaborative process” with the Ministry of the Environment, with city staff continuing to review the situation in anticipation of receiving development applications from Waste Management about the landfill expansion. The memo also recommends that the city communication with the Ministry regarding a number of issues that it views as remaining outstanding in spite of the Environmental Assessment. These include odour control, groundwater protection and drainage monitoring and traffic impact. The memo also states that despite

diverting waste, there is still a need for solid waste disposal sites in the city. It states that city policy is to expand existing sites first rather than open a new solid waste disposal site. The memo also notes that the city’s Official Plan states that no Official Plan amendment is required for an expansion to an existing landfill site. This is viewed as the case in the Carp Road situation. The memo does state that city staff cannot fully evaluate the Waste Management proposal regarding compliance with city policies until a formal application for the project has been received by the city. No such formal application has yet been submitted by Waste Management. However, the memo anticipates that some of the area contemplated for the new landfill may require rezoning. Once an application for such a rezoning is received from Waste Management, city planning staff will review it and make recommendations based on professional opinion and all applicable regulations, polices and law. It is also anticipated by the city that Site Plan Control Approval will be required for the Carp Road site but this too is awaiting a formal application by Waste Management. The memo notes that the Planning Act governs the city’s ability to set conditions with respect to a site plan application but that parties to such an

to raise funds to launch a judicial appeal of the provincial approval of the Environmental Assessment. It had been hoping that the city would take the lead in such an appeal. This now appears unlikely in view of the legal opinion that was obtained. Lawyers for the Richardson Corridor Community Association, one of the groups involved in the Coalition, apparently believe that the Environmental Assessment submitted by Waste Management did not comply with the Terms of Reference for the

document. The Richardson Corridor Community Association also apparently believes that Waste Management’s failure to comply with the Terms of Reference makes the August 16, 2013 approval of the Environmental Assessment unreasonable because the Minister’s approval of the Environmental Assessment can be argued as approving or glossing over Waste Management’s failure to comply with the Terms of Reference approved by the Minister.

‘Dracula’s Castle’ appears in Stittsville on Halloween John Curry

News - “Dracula’s Castle” appeared in Stittsville on Halloween. It came to life in the front yard of the Walters home on Cinnabar Way in the Granite Ridge area of Stittsville. There it was, taking up virtually the whole front yard, with eight foot castle walls surrounding an interior that was filled with scary scenes and characters. There was the tall Hagred towering over visitors as they made their way through the Castle interior after being ushered through the Castle’s front gate and there was also a dead bride affectionately known as the Lamp Post Woman since the home’s lawn light provided her with her stability. And while Hagred and the Lamp Post Woman were created figures, others were real, live characters in costume and makeup, like the werewolf in a cage, an executioner with a guillotine, Dracula in his coffin, a spooky organ player, a dead king in his throne (that’s right, an alive dead person), a creature leaping out of a stone wall, a chain saw bearing monster – and this was just

some of the live creatures. What about that face in the frame over the fireplace? Did it move? Or was that just imagination? And the castle interior was littered with skeletons, headstones, rats, crows – you name it and if it is an eerie and scary thing, it probably was housed in this Dracula’s Castle. And don’t forget the fog that kept floating through the air and that eerie music that played on and on through the evening. The route through the castle was delineated with a chain, ensuring that youngsters visiting the castle would not miss any of the Castle’s scary features. The actors who portrayed most of these figures of Dracula and associates were all advised of the age of those coming through. The younger ones were treated gently and sent through as a group. But older teens – well, it was all out scare tactics for them. When youngsters had made their way through the Castle and had exited from it, they were given their Halloween candy. This Dracula’s Castle was the seventh and final Halloween display created by Dave and Wendy Walters and their family. Wendy’s sister

and brother-in-law had been involved with the previous six years of these Halloween displays, rotating them between the Walters’ Cinnabar Way home and their home on Harry Douglas Drive. But last year was their final year of being involved. Wendy and her husband Dave and family decided to do it for one final year but to go out with a bang, as it were, by involving students, offering community service hours to students who would help construct the Castle, be Halloween characters in it and then help dismantle it. And so on Halloween there were students from Sacred Heart High School and A.Y. Jackson Secondary School on hand to be some of the characters in the Castle or to help with makeup or other tasks. Parent volunteers were also involved, such as in helping direct “trick or treating” youngsters into the Castle. Over the years, the theme of the Halloween display has changed for the Walters family. There’s been a “Medieval” theme, a “Mummy” theme, a “Pirates of the Carribbean” theme. They have all been pretty elaborate, just like this year’s “Dracula’s Castle” theme. Wendy’s

husband Dave builds the props which Wendy paints. It took a week to erect the Castle on the front lawn. The props such as the Castle walls are all set up with screws for easy dismantling and ultimate storage in the Walters’ garage. This year “Dracula Castle” opened on both Monday evening, Oct. 28, and Wednesday evening, Oct. 30 prior to Halloween, attracting a few youngsters through but it was Halloween night that was the big night. On all of these evenings, donations were collected for the Stittsville Food Bank. “I love Halloween,” is how Wendy Walters explains her family’s tremendous efforts on Halloween. She said that it all started off just with doing something on the front step and it just got bigger and bigger every year until it culminated in “Dracula’s Castle” this year. The planning for this year’s Dracula’s Castle began last July. Wendy does not know what she will do next year with no elaborate Halloween display to plan and erect. But she is confident that she will think of something to keep her busy, perhaps helping a community organization or group in some way.

He says that the Warriors organization is committed to ensure that the values encouraged on the field are also practiced off the field by the Warriors players. “The same values that serve our players on the field should contribute to a stronger community off the field,” president Stewart says, noting that the club is proud of the commitment to give back to the community which the players have evidenced through this new Food Bank Donation Program. The Bell Warriors Football club has offered football programs for youth ages 8 to 16 years since 1955, drawing its players from the communities of Stittsville, Richmond, Munster, Bells corners, Bayshore and Britannia.

Scoring for the White Team were Kyle Gourgon with four goals, Mike Testa with two goals and Broc Beehler, Wayne Hall and Corey Loverock with one goal apiece.

Homemade soup at Snowflake Bazaar John Curry

News - The homemade soup at the annual Snowflake Bazaar at St. Thomas Anglican Church in Stittsville last Saturday was so good that even city of Ottawa mayor Jim Watson had to partake. The mayor dropped into the bazaar in the basement church hall and stayed to enjoy the homemade soup and luncheon, sharing a table with Stittsville residents Harry and Maxine Mercer. The mayor’s appearance at the event was only one reason for the buzz which prevailed throughout the hall during the three hours of the bazaar which started at 11 a.m. But the buzz was also generated because

of the variety of offerings which could be found throughout the hall and also because of the capacity crowd which filled the luncheon area to enjoy the homemade soup, rolls, cookies and squares and even hot dogs for youngsters. There was jewellery, Christmas decorations and tables full of gently used toys and nicknacks, all ideal for some early Christmas shopping. There was an extensive silent auction while other highlights included the sale of jellies, baking, puddings and frozen pies. Upstairs, there was a used paperback book sale. Those at the Snowflake Bazaar could also purchase hand decorated Christmas decorations, with all of the proceeds going to

support a youth trip to Nicaragua in March 2014. Another interesting offering at this event was the possible purchase of a singing Christmas card for only ten dollars. For this, a group of singing enthusiasts would undertake to sing two favourite Christmas songs to the family or friends of the purchaser anywhere in Stittsville. It was hard not to be unaware of this Snowflake Bazaar if travelling along Stittsville Main Street last Saturday. There was a series of signs advertizing the event lined up along the street at the church. There was even one advertizing sign propped into the branches of a tall evergreen tree near the corner of Stittsville Main Street and Carleton Cathcart Street.

Sports - A last minute goal broke a 3-3 tie and gave the Stittsville Royals a 4-3 win over the Gatineau Mustangs in an Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League game at Buckingham last Friday night. Tanner Knight of the Royals scored at the 19:03 mark of the third period to give the Royals the lead and ultimate 4-3 victory. Eric Malloy and Jordan Cale assisted on this game-winning goal. After a scoreless first period, the Royals had jumped into an early 2-0 lead in the second pe-

riod, with Gatineau scoring later in the period to make the score 2-1 for the Royals going into the third period. The Royals scored again at the 5:23 mark of the third period to go ahead by a 3-1 margin but then Gatineau roared back with two straight goals in just over two minutes to knot the score at 3-3 and set the stage for Knight’s last minute, game-winning goal for the Royals. Scoring for the Royals in this game, besides Tanner Knight, were Jordan Cale with two goals and Joey Laird with one. Assists went to Clay Carter, Jake Oliver, Tanner Knight, Jeremy Nichols and Alex Perrault.

Help children and youth create lifelong connections The focus of the Children’s Aid Society of Ottawa (CASO) is child safety. We work in collaboration with families and community partners to resolve any concerns or struggles parents may be faced with. We provide the family with support to ensure children and youth receive safe and nurturing care, while staying at home. If a child does come into care, CASO continues to provide support so that the family, if possible, can be reunited. When a child comes into the permanent care of the Society, a permanency plan is created. This plan may include living with kin, legal custody, or adoption. Customary care is also an option for First Nation, Inuit and Métis children, which allows a child to live with a caregiver identified by the child’s community. Everyone should know the support of a strong foundation . It is our goal to provide all children and youth in care with long-term supportive relationships. These bonds can come in many forms, just like the children and youth in our care. Throughout the month of November we ask you to consider the role that lifelong relationships have played in your life. Friends, family and community can enrich our lives. It is up to us to ensure that children and youth in care have the opportunity to form these lifetime bonds. Consider how you can help make this need a reality for children and youth in the Ottawa area.

Richmond Pathfinder Yvonne Lunn has received the Canada Cord, the highest award that can be earned in the Pathfinder section of Guiding.

Canada Cord for Yvonne Lunn Special to the News

News - A Richmond Pathfinder has received the Canada Cord. Yvonne Lunn was recently awarded the Canada Cord, the only one from the Richmond/ Munster area to receive this award this year. The Canada Cord is the highest award that can be earned by girls in Pathfinders which is the Girl Guiding section for girls between 12 and 14 years of age. Pathfinders focus on community service, leadership and camping. Through program work, girls can earn the Canada Cord which is the highest award that can be earned by a Pathfinder. To earn the Canada Cord award, a Pathfinder must complete 20 modules covering about four activities each. In addition, they plan, participate in and lead a number of camps or leadership events and also work a number of community service hours. Other requirements can include leading activities for younger Guides or Brownies, taking a first aid course and doing citizenship activities. Achieving the Canada Cord requires a significant commitment to Guiding. By earning the

Canada Cord, a Pathfinder has met new people, learned about themselves and their capabilities, put their leadership skills into action and have made a difference in the community. Guiding in Canada started in 1910. The Girl Guides of Canada is now the largest organization for girls and women in Canada, with the membership organized into different groups according to age: Sparks, Brownies, Guides, Pathfinders and Rangers. Adult women serve as Leaders or Guiders. The Guiding movement is based on principles outlined in the Guiding Promise and Law. The Promise is as follows: “I promise to do my best/To be true to myself, my beliefs, and Canada./ I will take action for a better world/ And respect the Guiding Law.” The Guiding Law is as follows: “The Guiding Law challenges me to: Be honest and trustworthy/Use my resources wisely/Respect myself and others/Recognize and use my talents and abilities/Protect our common environment/Live with courage and strength/Share in the sisterhood of Guiding.”

Cadets, reservist at Remembrance dinner in Richmond John Curry

News - Two unsung elements of Canada’s military were in evidence at last Saturday’s Remembrance dinner at the Richmond Branch 625 of the Royal Canadian Legion. One was six uniformed members of the 706 Ottawa Snowy Owl Royal Canadian Air Cadets Squadron along with their Commanding Officer Major Tom Platt. They were flag bearers for the opening procession of head table dignitaries. They also helped serve coffee and tea during the dinner and also helped clear the tables and clean up after the dinner. This was the first time that Cadets helped out in this way at this annual dinner. They also helped out with the Richmond Legion’s poppy blitz of the community the week before. The Richmond Legion does provide some financial support to the 706 Ottawa Snowy Owl Royal Canadian Air Cadets Squadron. Those at the dinner not only saw these Cadets in action but also they heard about the role of army reservists from guest speaker LieutenantColonel Sheila Chapman who is Commanding Officer of 33 Service Battalion and who herself is a reservist. Lt. Col. Chapman has been involved in the annual Remembrance Day parade and service in Richmond for a number of years through her involvement with the 33 Service Battalion. She told those at the dinner that up to 40 percent of those on recent Canadian military deployments have been members of the nation’s reserve force or reservists. She pointed out that reservists are members of communities across Canada. She herself lives in Kars where she is a Beaver/Cub leader, runs in 5K and 10K races and is married with two sons, ages 5 and 8. “We’re part of all of you,” Lt. Col. Chapman told the audience about reservists being part of local communities, noting that reservists perform

their military duties as part-time activities, volunteering their service to their country. She noted that members of the military reserve rely on taking time off from their regular work and relying on the support of their families in order to go on deployments and training exercises. She told about a deployment of 33 Service Battalion to Moosonee in northern Ontario last February which proved challenging not only because of the cold but also because of the distance involved, meaning that if something was missing, improvisation was the answer, not running back to headquarters for the missing items as might happen if the deployment were in Petawawa rather than Moosonee. This deployment to Moosonee involved over 700 reserve soldiers. Lt. Col. Chapman said that 33 Service Battalion has a long history in the Ottawa area although not always under the current name. It was back in 1905 that saw the earliest support battalion in the Ottawa area. A service battalion involves a number of trades such as cooks, drivers, weapons technicians and the like. Ltd. Col. Chapman’s history with the military reserves goes back to 1990 when, while still in high school, she enrolled as a private. She moved up through the reserve ranks, becoming an officer cadet in 1993. After graduating from Sir Wilfrid Laurier in 1996, she returned to Ottawa and continued with the reserves, becoming a captain in 1999 and a major in 2007 before being promoted to the rank of Lt. Col. In 2012 when she became Commanding Officer of 33 Service Battalion. In his remarks at the Remembrance dinner, Richmond Legion president Brian Goss noted that the recent Thanksgiving celebrations enjoyed by everyone would not have been able to take place had it not been for the sacrifices of the men and women who answered the call to serve their country in previous wars

and in the military. The Remembrance dinner included a special ceremony of Remembrance for the Richmond Legion and Ladies Auxiliary members who had passed away in the last year. As Legion member Oscar Clench read out the individual names, Legion member and Remembrance dinner MC Pat Sullivan rang a solitary bell whose sound resounded through the hushed hall. This year’s Remembrance dinner wound up as has become traditional at the Richmond Legion, with bagpiper Eric Booth playing a medley of tunes and taking part with Legion member Gerry Gauthier in a “Toast to the Piper.” Those at the head table for this year’s Remembrance banquet at the Richmond Legion included guest speaker Ltd. Col. Sheila Chapman, MC Pat Sullivan, Richmond Legion president Brian Goss and his wife Brenda, and Richmond Legion poppy chair Jane Louks and her husband Tom.

Fly past by World War Two vintage planes to happen at Remembrance Day service

Sc tt Moffatt

Special to the News

News - Even the sky over Stittsville will be paying homage to those who served and those who paid the ultimate sacrifice this coming Monday, Remembrance Day, Nov. 11. It will take the form of a fly past over the site of the Stittsville cenotaph at the front of the Johnny Leroux Stittsville Community Arena sometime around 2:15 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. as the Remembrance Day service is underway at the cenotaph. Expected to take part in this fly past are three World War Two vintage airplanes – a Spitfire, a Hurricane and a Corsair. The Spitfire is a British single seat fighter aircraft that was a stalwart in the air in the Second World War. The Hawker Hurricane is a British single seat fighter aircraft perhaps not as well known as the Spitfire but an aircraft which became renowned for its service during the Battle of Britain in the Second World War. The Corsair is a United States aircraft carrier-based fighter aircraft that served as a fighter/bomber in the Second World War and in the Korean War. All three planes are to take part in the fly past at the Stittsville cenotaph on Remembrance Day, Nov. 11.

Lest We Forget

“It’s going to be absolutely awesome,” says Christine Philipson of the Stittsville Legion in describing this fly past. The fly past has been made possible thanks to fundraising efforts headed by Theresa Qadri of Stittsville who obtained $3,200 in sponsorship funds from the community in order to facilitate this fly past. The funds will cover fuel and other costs associated with the fly past. This fly past will be just one part of the Remembrance Day observances in Stittsville this Monday, Nov. 11, Remembrance Day. The parade of veterans, Legion members, military personnel, Guides and Scouts and others will form up at the Stittsville Legion Hall on Stittsville Main Street, leaving at 1:30 p.m. to march along Stittsville Main Street to arrive at the cenotaph at the front of the Johnny Leroux Stittsville Community Arena just before 2 p.m. where a Remembrance Day service will take place. The service will include the laying of wreaths at the foot of the cenotaph by representatives of all levels of government, representatives of local organizations and businesses and others. Following the Remembrance Day service, which will include the fly past, the parade will re-form and march back to the Stittsville Legion Hall where there will be a reception with everyone welcome to attend.

OMB pre-hearing about Earn Extra Money! Keep Your Weekends Free! Richmond development John Curry

News - An Ontario Municipal Board (OMB) pre-hearing conference about a proposed development on the north and south sides of Perth Street at the western boundary of the village of Richmond has been set for Tuesday, Nov. 26. At this pre-hearing conference, to be held at Ottawa city hall, various preliminary and procedural matters dealing with a future OMB hearing on the proposed subdivision will be determined. This includes identification of the parties which are those who will have the right to participate throughout the hearing by presenting evidence, questioning witnesses and making final arguments; identification of participants who are those who are not participants but may wish to make a statement to the OMB about the proposed development; identification of the issues involved; the start date of the hearing and its duration; and the possibility of the settlement of any or all issues via mediation. This appeal to the OMB was made by solicitors for the developer, Richmond Village (North) Limited and Richmond Village (South) Limited, after the city of Ottawa did not make a decision on the zoning bylaw amendments and plan of subdivision submitted for the lands in question by the developer. The city is mandated to make such decisions within a prescribed period of time or else the

proponent can appeal the matter to the OMB. The zoning bylaw amendment being sought involves rezoning the properties in question along the north and south sides of Perth Street at the western edge of Richmond from DR1 (Developmental Reserve 1) to Village Residential Second Density, Village Residential Third Density, Open Space and Floodplain Overlay to permit a proposed plan of subdivision of 1,000 units of mixed residential types and park space. This rezoning would facilitate the development of the lands in question. The lands are currently designated for development in the Richmond Community Design Plan and in the villageâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Secondary Plan. The proposed subdivision, both north and south of Perth Street, will involve about 1,000 dwellings at full build out. It will be comprised of 30 to 40 percent attached townhome units and 60 to 70 percent of single detached homes. Build out of this development will be phased over a number of years, with about 50 to 100 housing units built each year. The lands being proposed for development will be serviced by a new communal well system as well as by an expansion and extension of the existing municipal sanitary sewer system in the village. There are three storm water management ponds proposed as well as a one hectare neighbourhood park. R0012401257

Lions may partner in BAHA implant project Special to the News

News - Stittsville District Lions Club member Don Redtman, as chair of the District A4 Hearing and Speech Committee, is involved in a possible initiative that could improve the hearing of those who cannot benefit from conventional hearing aids. He has met with Dr. J.P. Souaid, an otologist at the Ottawa Ear Clinic at the Queensway-Carleton Hospital, with Lions Past District Governor

Andy Etherington and Lion Angele Charlebois of the Gloucester North Lions Club, who is a patient of Dr. Souaid’s, also in attendance. At the meeting, they discussed how the Lions organization may be involved in assisting individuals who require a Bone Anchored hearing Aid (BAHA) implant. This BAHA implant is a surgically implantable system for treatment of hearing loss that works through direct bone con-

duction. It is used to help people with chronic ear infections, congenital external auditory canal artesian and single sided deafness who cannot benefit from conventional hearing aids. The BAHA implant procedure is not new as it was approved as a treatment for conductive and mixed hearing losses in the United States way back in 1966. In 2002, the United States approved its use for the treatment of unilateral sensor neural

hearing loss. In Ontario, the cost of the surgeon, hospital, anesthetist and other similar costs are covered by OHIP. However, the cost of the hardware for the implant is not. This means that the patient has to cover the cost which is $6,500 per ear. Dr. Souaid would like to see the Lions along with other organizations raise funds to assist individuals in the Ottawa area who need a BAHA implant. The financial help provided

is envisioned to cover a portion of the cost, with the amount allocated depending on the financial ability of the patient. The full amount of the implant hardware would not be covered. Lion Don Redtman is approaching Lions Clubs in the District to contribute $100 each to this initiative. This would raise $6,700. Hopefully other organizations will get on board and also contribute a similar amount. This combined total would allow up to ten individuals a year to be assisted, based on an average assistance of $2,000 each.

Festival of art and birthday party at GRC

casion. This meant that there was cake and ice cream available for everyone in attendance.

News - Art was front and centre at the Goulbourn Recreation Complex (GRC) in Stittsville last Saturday. In fact, it was more than just front and centre – it was also front, centre and rear. That’s because the whole foyer area, right from the front door through to close to the back door, was filled with artists displaying numerous examples of their work. Whether it was paintings or photography, these artists had their work displayed on temporary display panels. And what was even better, each artist was right there with the display, ready and willing to chat with all visitors who viewed the display and might want to talk with the artist in person. It was like a festival of art and certainly a celebratory happy mood filled the air there and why shouldn’t it – because it was also a birthday party. Yes, that’s right – a party marking the fifth anniversary of the opening of the Ottawa West Arts Association (owaa) gallery on the walls of the foyer at the GRC. And one of the features of this party was this gala art exhibition and sale stretching throughout the whole foyer area at the GRC. Another highlight of the event was a visit by city of Ottawa mayor Jim Watson who dropped in at the halfway point at 1 p.m. to provide congratulations to the owaa art group for its ongoing success with the gallery. Together with city of Ottawa Stittsville ward councillor Shad Qadri and with owaa co-chair Salena Richard, the mayor cut a couple of cakes celebrating the oc-

City of Ottawa mayor Jim Watson, left, and city of Ottawa Stittsville ward councillor Shad Qadri, right, presents Louise Barker, centre, with a framed copy of a newspaper article about the opening of the Ottawa West Arts Association gallery at the Goulbourn Recreation Complex five years ago in appreciation for her work and effort as one of the originators of the gallery idea. The presentation took place at the gallery’s fifth anniversary celebration last Saturday.

John Curry

The mayor also presented a certificate to the owaa congratulating the group on its fifth an-


niversary. One special moment was a presentation to Louise Barker, one of the founding artists of the owaa, given to acknowledge her contributions to the association over the years. Indeed, she was one of the artists taking part in the art exhibition in the foyer that day. She was presented with a framed copy of the newspaper story written when the owaa gallery first opened. There was a children’s art table set up throughout the day and live music filled the foyer space both before and after the mayor’s remarks and associated happenings. And what an exhibition of art! There was the display of Stittsville artist Mark Grasza, not only including his typical large paintings such as one showing Parliament Hill from the Quebec side of the Ottawa River and another showing the likenesses of their Highnesses Prince William and Princess Kate beside the Rideau Canal but also including some of his sports paintings including one of Wayne Gretzky and others featuring players such as Doug Gilmour and Steve Yzerman. While he is not known as well for these sports images, they are popular. In the past, he sold five of his Gretzky images to one Toronto buyer. But Mark’s paintings are also known to the Vatican. In the past, he has supplied calendars featuring reproductions of his paintings to both Pope Jean Paul II and Pope Benedict, getting a response of acknowledgment in both cases.

Art exhibition on anniversary Continued from page 47


City of Ottawa mayor Jim Watson, left, city of Ottawa Stittsville ward councillor Shad Qadri, centre, and Ottawa West Arts Association (owaa) co-chair Salena Richard, right, together cut one of the celebratory cakes marking the fifth anniversary of the founding of the owaa gallery at the Goulbourn Recreation Complex in Stittsville at a celebration last Saturday.

He is planning to send his 2014 calendar to Pope Francis. Indeed, the Polish ambassador recently took one of Mark’s paintings with him to give to Pope Francis during a visit to the Vatican. And there, last Saturday, his paintings were, on display at the owaa exhibition at the GRC. Joe Aragona was another of the participating artists last Saturday. He is best known for his photographs of vintage cars, one of which is usually in the regular bi-monthly art exhibitions at the owaa gallery at the GRC foyer. But for this exhibition, Joe not only had some of his photographs of vehicles on display but he also had several photographs showing scenes of Italy, taken during a wedding anniversary trip there. Joe, in fact, was born in Italy but came to Canada when he was six years old and these photos on display were taken during this trip there, his first time back since he left as a youngster. Several of the artists exhibiting in this show not only had their art itself on display but also had cards featuring their artwork on display and sale as well. This included artists such as Vera van Baaren, Roseanne Facchin and Sheila Turner Whalen. Roseanne Facchin, for instance, views her cards which sell for $2 each as a promotional and publicity vehicle, as her name is printed on each one that also bears the image of one of her pieces of art on the front. Roseanne is an artist whose medium of choice is acrylics. She does landscapes featuring images from nature as well as florals. Sheila Turner Whalen uses a variety of mediums in her art such as watercolours, acrylics,

fluid acrylics and watercolour pencil. Not that many artists work in watercolour pencil but she had a couple of watercolour pencil works in her display. Some of the other artists involved in this special anniversary exhibition were photographers Sylvie Sabourin, John Edkins and Stephen Harrison and painters Alain Bernard, Elizabeth Sullivan, Soraya Silvestri (“zizi”), Michael Goguen, Kat McClure, Beverly Lafortune, Gerald Smith, Salena Richard and Trudy Daley.


Photographer Sylvie Sabourin, with her camera, stands with some of her photographic work on display at the art exhibition at the Goulbourn Recreation Complex in Stittsville last Saturday.

Thank You from the Energy East Pipeline project team

Energy East Pipeline

Recently, TransCanada visited Stittsville to discuss our newly proposed Energy East Pipeline project with local community members. Our experts listened as community residents shared their thoughts on a number of topics about the project, including questions around how TransCanada safeguards its pipeline system to how it protects rivers and environmentally sensitive areas along the project route. I’d like to first say thank you to those who joined us at our event. The feedback we receive from each person at these open houses is gathered, recorded and considered as we work toward the planning of the pipeline. It’s an essential part of our engagement process and something we take very seriously. TransCanada has one of the best records in the industry for delivering energy safely and efficiently across North America. In 2012 alone, we spent $1 billion on proactive maintenance programs to protect our pipelines. It’s these types of commitments that ensure our projects are developed in the safest and most socially responsible manner possible, and Energy East will be no exception. Special measures will be used when crossing rivers and other sensitive areas to help further protect the environment. Some of these include adding thicker-walled pipe and placing extra sensors and valve systems closer together in these important areas. We will also monitor the pipeline 24 hours a day with the ability to remotely shut it down within minutes anywhere along the route, and will place specialized equipment and field crews along the entire project to monitor, maintain and respond immediately if needed. Pipelines are the safest way to transport oil across North America and our oil pipelines are among the newest and safest ever built. I’ve been in this industry for over 30 years so I can tell you firsthand that no one has a stronger interest in the protection of TransCanada’s pipelines than we do. That’s why we continuously adopt new technologies and new programs to improve our systems every day. Thank you once again for hosting us in your community and sharing your thoughts. Our events are designed to ensure we achieve one important goal: to communicate one-on-one with each individual who attends our open houses. We appreciate your hospitality and look forward to meeting with you again very soon. For more information about our project, please visit us at Sincerely,

Steve Pohlod President Energy East Pipeline Project

MARY COOK Mary Cookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Memories Lifestyle - Mother was always concerned that we five children didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the proper respect for the true meaning of Remembrance Day. There was little in the way of observance at Northcote school. For this reason, Mother, each year, piled all of us into the Model T and headed into town where, as she put it, there would be a proper and fitting ceremony to remember those who had fallen in the First World War. Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s three young brothers had all been in the army, even though Mother said they werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t old enough to vote, but they were old enough to fight in the war. By the way Mother talked about her brothers, I wondered if they perhaps had won the war singlehandedly. Without fail, the weather was always dreadful on Remembrance Day. We would drive through freezing rain or snow, it seemed, and at a very young age I wondered if the terrible weather had something mysterious to do with the sombreness of the day. And so when we headed into Renfrew, we were bundled up like mummies with hats and mitts and winter boots. We certainly wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the luxury of wear-


ing slacks on such a day and even though I usually hated them with a passion, I was very grateful for the heavy navy blue, fleece-lined bloomers over our long underwear and long beige, ribbed stockings. But it never mattered how much clothes we had on, there was always a piercing wind rolling down Raglan Street where the parade took place at the war memorial and it penetrated our bodies and had us shivering like leaves on tree. The children from the Renfrew schools always marched to the place where the ceremony was held. We five country children were very aware that we werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really a part of a group, but that certainly didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter to our mother. She would wait until the town school pupils had formed perfect lines, looking neither left nor right, and would march the five of us right up to the front row, and position us so that we were actually an extension of the line-up of town kids. My older sister Audrey was most embarrassed, but her protests did nothing to sway our Mother. The town children had sheets of music and

we would shudder in embarrassment when we would see Mother walk right over to a teacher, whisper in her ear, and then point to us. We would then see her head back to us with five sheets of music. For reasons much beyond my comprehension, someone from the town ranks of pupils always fainted. Just as sure as death and taxes, as soon as the person leading the program opened his mouth, one or two would topple over. If the overcome person was a girl, the teacher would rush up, fan her with the sheet music, and if that didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help, she would be carried off with her eyes rolled into the back of her head. But if it was a boy pupil who had succumbed to the pressures of the day and toppled over, he was left to lie there until he either revived on his own or the ceremony ended. Emerson said, on the way home, â&#x20AC;&#x153;those Renfrew kids are a sickly lot ... certainly none of us ever fell over in a dead faint.â&#x20AC;? After all the war songs had been sung, out of the crowd would come a very old man with a shiny trumpet tucked under his arm. He would walk the full length of the parade area, and he

wore a soldierâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s uniform that obviously had been borrowed. His hands were all but covered with the cuffs and the pant legs bagged over his swath-covered legs. He was very elderly and Mother, ever the one to add drama to any situation, said he probably fought in the Boer War. He played the trumpet loud and clear as a bell, and there wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a dry eye in the crowd. The Renfrew children were the first to march off the parade grounds and Emerson, not to be outdone by kids from town, turned on the heal of his gum-rubbers and with his arms swinging, marched back down the street to where Mother had parked the Model T. On the road back to Northcote we would be subjected once again to Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stories of how her own brothers went off to war and often her voice would catch with the memory. But we knew she was filled with pride and I too would be caught up in the stories. I would think of those uncles, who returned safely from battle unscarred and I would think I was related to true war heroes. Then I would know, even though I was very young, why Remembrance Day was so important to our mother.

Dave Brown, retired after a 38 year newspaper career although he still writes periodically for the Ottawa Citizen, has over the years interviewed and profiled many military veterans and it is these military men which will be the focus of his remarks at the upcoming November meeting of the Goulbourn Historical Society. Mr. Brown will be speaking on “Military Men” at the Historical Society’s meeting on Saturday, Nov. 16 at 1:30 p.m. at the Stittsville Legion Hall on Stittsville Main Street in Stittsville. Everyone is welcome to attend, whether

an Historical Society member or not. Those who do plan to attend are urged to bring along any military memorabilia concerned relatives or friends who served in the military. At this meeting, you will get to hear Dave Brown who wrote more than 10,000 columns in his 38 year journalism career from which he retired in Aug. 2003. On his retirement, the Ottawa Citizen called him “a legend” because of his consistently high readership. Indeed, he continues to write occasional columns for the newspaper. During his career, he has produced columns on subjects as diverse as ethics shortcomings among the professions to excesses of the child protection system. He has focused on the horrors of war through the

eyes of veterans. Mr. Brown began in journalism at the age of 15, writing a high school newsletter on Manitoulin Island. His work caught the attention of the editor of the weekly Manitoulin Expositor who he eventually worked for. In 1957, he accepted a reporting job with the Sudbury Daily Star. Three years later, he became a night police reporter for the Ottawa Journal. In 1966, he began writing a column called “Below the Hill,” focusing his attention on Ottawa at street level. In 1978, the Ottawa Citizen hired him to write a daily column called “Brown’s Beat. “ In 1996, he was given the title “senior editor” at the Ottawa Citizen in recognition of his long service and high readership.

Former MPP is appointed to panel Special to the News

News - Former CarletonMississippi Mills MPP Norm Sterling has been appointed to an Open Government Engagement Team tasked with recommending ways for the provincial government to increase openness, transparency and accountability. The nine-member panel is being expected to report its recommendations to Ontario premier Kathleen Wynne in the spring. Mr. Sterling held nine different ministerial portfolios in a career that started in 1977 and lasted continuously until 2011 when he did not run for re-elec-

tion as he was defeated for the Conservative nomination in the Carleton-Mississippi Mills riding by Jack MacLaren who went on to win in the ensuing election and is the current Carleton-Mississippi Mills MPP. Others on this Open Government Engagement Team include public policy expert Don Lenihan of Ottawa, digital media entrepreneur Ray Sharma, Leslie Church of Google Canada and former deputy minister Elaine Meller Todres, among others. The panel is to seek feedback from across the province with a specific focus on three areas: open dialogue includ-

ing creating an online space to help involve Ontario residents in consultation on government matters; open data which will involve posting more internal information online to provide for greater access to statistics in a range of government issues; and open information to increase transparency across the whole provincial government. It is all an initiative by Premier Wynne to increase the amount of government information available to members of the public. This involves making information easier to find, to understand and to use by members of the public, with the hope that this will lead to ser-

vices that provide better results to Ontario residents. “I believe that government data belongs to the people of Ontario and so we will make government data open by default, limiting access only to safeguard privacy, security and confidentiality,” Premier Wynne wrote in an open letter to Ontario residents about the formation of this Open Government Engagement Team. In the end, Premier Wynne wants to open up more data and information to Ontario residents so that they can better engage in the decision-making process and also in the development of provincial policy.

Trish Brauer, left, commentator for the portion of the fashion show hosted by the Beta Sigma Phi sorority that featured fashions from The Real Wool Shop Boutique in Carleton Place, looks on as Carmel Dalgleish, right, models a dress in the show which was held at the St. Philip’s Parish Hall in Richmond last Saturday afternoon, Nov. 2.

High-flying fashions on Richmond runway


See FASHION SHOW, page 70






John Curry

News - A central walkway at St. Philip’s Parish Hall in Richmond became a runway last Saturday afternoon, Nov. 2. No, it was not a place for planes to land and take off but it did involve some pretty high-flying fashions, though, as Richmond’s Beta Sigma Phi sorority hosted a fundraising fashion show. And it was up this central walkway area between round tables populated with the show’s supporters that seven models strolled, displaying a range of fashions provided by The Real Wool Shop in Carleton Place and Nancy’s Impressions, another Carleton Place business. The Real Wool Shop boutique in Carleton Place handles a full range of wool-related fashions, both men’s and ladies, ranging from accent scarves to pants to wraps to waterfall cardigans to vests to knit jackets and more, with some of the clothing even glittering with decorative sequins. There were “oohs and awhs” from all parts of the hall when a leopard jacket made its way along the runway. And these “oohs and awhs” returned when model Carmel Dalgleish strolled up the runway in a form-fitting twotone dress. Indeed, Carmel, who also served as the sorority’s hostess for the event, welcoming everyone, noted to the crowd after The Real Wool Shop portion of the fashion show that the clothes that she had modeled all felt wonderful, also adding that she felt that they also made her look good. Those who reacted to the two-tone dress that was one of the outfits that she modeled would obviously agree. The second part of the fashion show featured fashions provided by Nancy’s Impressions, a long-established ladies fashion boutique on Bridge Street in Carleton Place which focuses on distinctive yet wearable looks.


Enjoying some of the treats and goodies served at the fashion show hosted by the Beta Sigma Phi sorority at the St. Philip’s Parish Hall at the corner of Fortune Street and Burke Street in Richmond last Saturday afternoon, Nov. 2 are, from left, Natalie Crosby, Susan Kemp and Connie Beddoe.

â&#x20AC;&#x201C; well over 100 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; got to enjoy some deliciously decadent desserts which ďŹ lled a table at one side of the hall. There perhaps was method in this dessert madness by the organizers â&#x20AC;&#x201C; after enjoying such goodies, you had to be in a good mood for the ensuing fashion show. There were lots of door prizes handled out during the afternoon. And there was still more goodies available later as there was a lengthy bake table ďŹ lled with baked items of all kinds â&#x20AC;&#x201C; all ready to be taken home by fashion show patrons. This fashion show was held by the Beta Sigma Phi sorority as a fundraiser in support of Harmony House, a womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shelter for women and their children who are ďŹ&#x201A;eeing violent domestic situations. In the past, the Beta Sigma Phi sorority has held fundraising events for such organizations as Friends of Hospice Ottawa and the Alzheimerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Society. This year the sorority wanted to help support Harmony House. 11107.R0012399487

Special to the News

News - It was 101 years ago that the Titanic collided with an iceberg during her maiden voyage across the Atlantic and sang, causing the deaths of more than 1,500 people. Since then, the Titanic has been a subject of much interest. It was supposed to have the most advanced safety features of the time including watertight compartments and watertight doors. However, one failing was that it did not have nearly enough lifeboats for everyone due to outdated maritime safety regulations. A 1997 romantic disaster ďŹ lm starring Leonardo Di Caprio and Kate Winslet focused even more attention on the sinking of the Titanic, as did the marking of the 100th anniversary of its sinking last year. Well, now those attending the next lunch meeting of the Stittsville Diners Club will hear about the Titanic and its sinking as guest speaker Coral Lindsay will deliver a presentation called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Titanic Talk.â&#x20AC;? This upcoming Stittsville Diners Club meeting will take place on Tuesday, Nov. 19 from 12

noon to 2 p.m. at the Stittsville United Church on Fernbank Road in Stittsville. Those planning to attend must register by Tuesday, Nov. 12 by calling Carol at 613-5913686, ext. 316. Transportation can be arranged upon request. The Stittsville Diners Club is a program hosted by the Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre along with community volunteers. It involves a nutritional lunch and either entertainment or an educational program, designed for seniors and adults with disabilities. The food is catered by Timesaver Foods and the cost is only $7.50 per person. These monthly luncheons of the Stittsville Diners Club are a great way to socialize, learn and have some fun, all at the same time. The December lunch of the Stittsville Diners Club will take place on Tuesday, Dec. 17 from 12 noon to 2 p.m. at the Stittsville United Church as well. This is being planned as a holiday celebration event. Those planning to attend this December lunch should register by Tuesday, Dec. 10 by calling Carol at 613-591-3686, ext. 316.
