It’s CD time! John Curry

Prestigious Order of Ottawa award is presented to Scott Heggart of Stittsville. See page 5

News - For the first time ever, the Goulbourn Jubilee Singers are going to be available on CD. This February the Goulbourn Jubilee Singers and the group’s associated junior choir the JJs will be recording the group’s very first CD. The CD will be officially launched at the Goulbourn Jubilee Singers’ annual spring concerts which are scheduled for Saturday, May 3 and Sunday, May 4, 2014. The theme of the CD will be why people sing in a community choir and the unique experience that is being part of a community choir. As Goulbourn Jubilee Singers music director Linda Crawford pointed out at the group’s Christmas concert last Saturday when announcing the CD project, the Goulbourn Jubilee Singers and the group’s asso-

ciated junior choir the Junior Jubilees or JJs are a unique organization in the community in that those involved range in age from 7 through to 85. The Goulbourn Jubilee Singers are seeking partnerships in the community to help in the funding of its upcoming CD project. Possible ways of helping include individual donations, perhaps in memory of a family member who loved music or perhaps in honour of a family milestone or corporate sponsorships of one “track” of the CD or of a specific element of the production budget. All donations will be acknowledged on the CD as well as on the Jubilee Singers website and at the launch concerts in May. For more information on partnership possibilities in helping fund this CD project, email or contact Sylvia at 613-271-6236 or via email at sralphsthibodeau@

Award for Heroism for actions at fire John Curry

Fire safety and healthy living are all part of the message in a student assembly. See page 39

News - The city of Ottawa has honoured three men whose actions on Monday, Sept. 9 most likely saved the life of a sleeping woman in a burning building. At Ottawa city council’s Community and Protective Services Committee meeting on Thursday, Nov. 21, the exploits of the three were recognized and a framed certificate Award for Heroism was presented to them.

All three – Brian Danson, Rob Hartnett and Paul Lamothe - are not only city of Ottawa Public Works Department employees but are also volunteer firefighters in the community. They were honoured for their heroic actions in locating and assisting a woman to safely as fire engulfed the historic Bradley General Store building on Stittsville Main Street in a noontime blaze on Monday, Sept. 9. “Brian, Rob and Paul are heroes who responded quickly and professionally to an emergency situation and likely



saved a women’s life,” said city of Ottawa councillor Mark Taylor, chair of the Community and Protective Services Committee, at the ceremony honouring the three, noting the bravery and dedication demonstrated by their actions. And mayor Jim Watson noted the bravery and also the community involvement of the three men. “Every day, city staff go above and beyond the call of duty, but this is an exemplary case of heroism and dedication by individuals who both work for the city and who volunteer their time

for the safety of their community,” the mayor said, noting that the threeaward recipients had risked their own lives to help others. It was as thick smoke poured from the doors and windows of the historic twostorey red brick building on Stittsville Main Street beside the Trans Canada Trail that these three, who were nearby and who are volunteer firefighters, entered the burning building to search for occupants.

Photos in 2014 calendar Special to the News

News - St. Clare’s Catholic Church at Dwyer Hill, the Stewart house (former Dr. Ken Hartin home) in Richmond, the Dr. Robert Chanonhouse home in Richmond and the Jock River in Richmond – they have something in common now. They are all among the photographs featured in the 2014 calendar which has been prepared by the

Goulbourn Museum and is now for sale. These landscape-type scenes are joined by other photos depicting various activities and artefacts associated with the Goulbourn Museum – hand-written postcards from the early 1900’s, the March Break Camp Curator program at the Museum, a 1950’s era tricycle that is a Museum artefact, a Halloween workshop at

the Museum and a pair of oldtime skates. The calendar also features, for the month of August, a giant yellow sunflower to represent Goulbourn’s agricultural heritage as well as a photograph, both for November and also on the calendar’s front cover, of the Long Service and Good Conduct medals earned by Richmond native Clarence Evelyn Rielly for his service in both World Wars. These are the medals which the Goulbourn Museum was able to purchase and

add to its collection thanks to the generosity of community members last August. For the month of January, the calendar features a scene at the historic postal wicket at the Ashton General Store. With this new 2014 Goulbourn Museum calendar, as you go through the months of the new year, you will be able to enjoy one of these photographs hanging right there on your wall, all photographed by Goulbourn Museum staff. These 2014 calendars

are available at $10 each from the Museum’s gift shop and also at the Ashton General Store. All proceeds from the sale of these calendars will go towards improving the Museum’s exhibitions and programs as well as caring for the Museum’s collection and its efforts to publicize the history of the former Goulbourn township. For more information about the Goulbourn Museum or about these 2014 calendars, please visit the website or call 613-831-2393.

Two concerts coming up for Robert Dueck John Curry

News - It s busy musical time coming up for Robert Dueck of Stittsville. The music director of both the West Ottawa Ladies Chorus and the Goulbourn Male Chorus has two concerts taking place. The West Ottawa Ladies Chorus will be presenting its Christmas concert entitled “A Garland of Carols� this coming Sunday, Dec. 1 at 3 p.m. at St. Paul’s Anglican Church on Young Road just north of Hazeldean Road in Kanata. And then, just two weeks later ex-

actly, Mr. Dueck will direct the Goulbourn Male Chorus as it presents its Christmas concert “Welcome Christmas� at the same venue, St. Paul’s Anglican Church, at the same time, 3 p.m. on the same day of the week, Sunday – Sunday, Dec. 15 at 3 p.m. to be exact. But you can bet that rather than looking ahead to these two concerts with any trepidation, Mr. Dueck is looking ahead with anticipation and pleasure. He knows that both groups, the West Ottawa Ladies Chorus and the Goulbourn Male Chorus, have been rehearsing and practicing long and hard for these concerts.

Both concerts should be great musical experiences and Mr. Dueck should know. He founded the Goulbourn Male Chorus in Sept. 2010 and later was instrumental in the formation of the West Ottawa Ladies Chorus. He began the Goulbourn Male Chorus because of his passion for traditional secular and sacred male choir music. A resident of Stittsville, Mr. Dueck has directed community and church choirs in the past. He is also an accomplished pianist. He always strives to combine both an enjoyment of singing with a goal of espousing quality and professional

standards. And Mr. Dueck’s approach seems to work, as Art van Draanen, a member of the Goulbourn Male Chorus, notes this about Robert Dueck: “Robert knows how to make each one of us ďŹ t in and shine, and how to do this with cheer and good humour. Rehearsals, as well as performances, are a thoroughly enjoyable mix of instruction, discipline, friendship and laughter.â€? Those at one or both of these upcoming concerts will get to see and hear Robert Dueck at work, directing the voices of these two choruses as they perform.

Scott Heggard receives Order of Ottawa award John Curry

News - The name of Scott Heggart of Stittsville will be among those displayed on a wall on the first floor of Ottawa city hall as one of this year’s 15 Order of Ottawa inductees. This civic award recognizes exceptional citizen contributions in various areas of city life including arts and culture, business, community service, education, public service, labour, communications and media, science, sports, entertainment and other fields of endeavour that benefit the citizens of Ottawa. Scott, along with the other 14 recipients of this Order of Ottawa award, were inducted at an evening ceremony at Ottawa city hall on Thursday, Nov. 21 presided over by Ottawa mayor Jim Watson. Scott is the first Stittsville resident to receive the Order of Ottawa award. “Through their professional work, these outstanding individuals have helped to make Ottawa an even better place to live and their contributions demonstrate how one person’s actions can make a difference in the lives of others in our community,” the mayor said at the induction ceremony. Scott Heggart of Stittsville, who attended Sacred Heart High School and is currently a third year student in communications at the University of Ottawa, has dedicated his recent years to telling his story about coming out as a homosexual athlete in an effort to make a

difference, offer support and spread awareness for unsupported youth members in the community. After struggling with his own sexual identity through his pre-teen and teenage years and fearing being ostracized into giving up playing sports, which were a huge part of his life, Scott decided that he needed to share the support that he had received from his teammates, family and friends with others in the community. Joining forces with the “You Can Play Project,” Scott continues to tuspport the organization’s mission to eliminate homophobia from locker rooms, ensuring equality and respect for all athletes, regardless of sexual orientation. He has often spoken at Ottawa area schools on behalf of the “No More Bullies Campaign,” sharing his personal story of coming out and trying to reach out to youth about the reality of bullying. He tries to educate students on the effects of their negative actions and tries to reinforce positive actions and respect for people’s differences. He has also worked with CHEO’s Youthnet program, helping youth develop healthy coping strategies for stress. Scott’s work in spreading awareness on behalf of homosexual athletes is helping to change a culture and offers the promise of respect and equal rights for homesexual youth in Ottawa and across the globe, in part thanks to his postings on YouTube. Over 100 nominations from the public were received for

the 2013 Order of Ottawa awards. A selection committee comprised the mayor, city clerk and solicitor, chief of police, chief of protocol, city archivist and chief executive officer of library services made the selections. Other recipients of the 2013 Order of Ottawa award are Dr. Caroline Andrew, a University of Ottawa professor; Rob Ashe, a former high CITY OF OTTAWA PHOTO tech executive and treasurer for the YMCA-YWCA’s $15 City of Ottawa mayor Jim Watson, left, and city of Ottawa Stittsville ward councillor Shad million fundraising campaign Qadri, right, flank Scott Heggart, centre, of Stittsville after he was presented with the in the Ottawa area; Dr. Barry Order of Ottawa award at a ceremony at Ottawa city hall on Thursday evening, Nov. 21.

The fundraiser is being held on Saturday, Dec. 7 at the Twin Elm Rugby Park near Richmond for Wendy Vaughn Ferguson, who is a mother, daughter, sister, neighbour and longtime Richmond resident. The fundraiser is the idea of Doug and Pam Champagne of Richmond as Pam has been a friend of Wendy’s since kindergarten. The fundraiser is taking the form of a dinner followed by dance with live music provided by Doug and Pam Champagne with their special guests Jim Simpson and Tom Hill. The turkey dinner will be served at 6 p.m. while the dance will begin at 7:30 p.m. Some dinner tickets, which must be purchased in advance

at a cost of $17 each, may still be available. The initial allotment was sold out but arrangements were made to accommodate a larger crowd, so more tickets became available. Dance tickets are still available at a cost of $10 per person. It is suggested that these dance tickets be purchased in advance to ensure getting one.

just off Hazeldean Road in Kanata will be! But that’s not all of the entertainment you will see and heart that afternoon. There’s also two male ensemble groups that have grown out of the Goulbourn Male Chorus which will be performing at the concert as well. One is an accompanied ensemble with Bonnie MacDiarmid, who accompanies the full Male Chorus, as its accompanist. The other is an eight member a cappella ensemble calling themselves the Men of Note. The accompanied ensemble, performing in the first half of the concert, will be singing two songs, “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen,” an English traditional Christmas carol that dates back to the mid 18th century, and “Winter Wind,” a musical portrait of the joy and beauty of the winter season, couched in exquisite test such as “Winter wind, soft as moonlight on new fallen snow, gently blow as I roam this clear and peaceful night.” Members of this accompanied ensemble are Christian Brydges, Peter Dykstra, David Steventon, Rory MacDiarmid, Jean Wong, Jack Barker, Jim Trouten and Jean Aube. In the second half of the show, the performers will include the Goulbourn Male Chorus a cappella ensemble “Men of Note.” This eightmember group will perform “Sing Out The News” and “Whisper, Whisper,” both snappy four-part male chorus arrangements. It’s going to be quite a treat. This “Men of Note” a cappella ensemble was established last September as a programming extension of the full Goulbourn Male Chorus

Tunnel study not worth money


espite the best intentions of Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury, studying the possibility of digging a tunnel underneath Lowertown from the Macdonald-Cartier Bridge to Highway 417 is no way to solve the problem of heavy trucks moving through the city core. Fleury recently put forward a motion calling for the city to raise the subject of a study with the provincial government, asking Queen’s Park to split the estimated $750,000 cost. This latest plan to address Lowertown truck traffic follows the collapse of National Capital Commission plans to establish a site in the city’s east end for an interprovincial bridge. That collapse was triggered by the Ontario government, which withdrew support for the NCC bridge study shortly after the Kettle Island corridor was revealed as the technically preferred route across the Ottawa River. With an estimated cost of $1.6 billion, a bridge at Kettle Island was never going to be an inexpensive prospect. But for the money, a bridge is a far better way to solve the truck problem. The first thing to consider would be how the cost of a tunnel would be divided. Since it would only be constructed on the Ontario side of the river, the Quebec government and city of Gatineau would

be under no obligation to contribute to the project. While Fleury points to this as an advantage -- fewer compromises would need to be made to satisfy fewer political interests -- it does no service to Ontario taxpayers as they would bear the burden while Quebeckers get better access to the 417. Another problem with the tunnel is it wouldn’t necessarily take all the trucks off the surface streets of Lowertown. Any tunnel to the 417 would be about two kilometres in length, making it longer than tunnels such as the Windsor-Detroit tunnel, the George Massey Tunnel in British Columbia and the LouisHippolyte Lafontaine Bridge-Tunnel in Quebec, each of which have restrictions on the transportation of dangerous goods. While the province would have to determine such restrictions for an Ottawa tunnel, it is unlikely dangerous goods would be allowed in the tunnel. And while the cost of a tunnel might be lower than a bridge, it would not offer the same potential economic boost a new crossing in the east end of the city would provide. Rather than looking at a tunnel, Fleury should be encouraging the province to help consider a more politically palatable location for a bridge, perhaps further east. The problem of truck traffic needs to be solved, but a tunnel doesn’t really fit the bill.


How’s this for radical thinking: streets without cars


riving on a downtown Toronto street on a Saturday night, I along with hundreds of other drivers, was trying to cope with construction zones that thrived even into the dark hours. Each block brought new lane closures, new temptations to swerve suddenly in one direction or another to find open space. Not many Toronto drivers are able to resist temptation, and I was tempted myself. At one point I pondered a swerve into the right-hand lane. Just as I decided against it, a bicyclist materialized from my right-hand blind spot and sped past. He wore dark clothing and no helmet. His bicycle had no lights. He was a dead man if I had made that lane change and it was only blind luck that I didn’t. Many opportunities for sermonizing arise from this incident. You could rant about unsafe cyclists, or impatient motorists or the out-of-control condo boom that has turned so many streets into accidents waiting to happen. You could get into the whole share-the-road argument again. You could even utter dark thoughts about Toronto. But it’s not about Toronto. Take a little spin along Queen Street in Ottawa tomorrow and think ahead. Until the light-rail construction is completed much of downtown Ottawa is

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town going to be an accident waiting to happen and it won’t much matter to the victims who’s at fault. This compounds the difficulties of a society in which there are already too many cars, a growing number of bicycles, way too many distractions and a stubborn sense of entitlement on the part of the owners of both kinds of vehicles. Then, for a good chunk of the year, you can add in winter. Anybody who thinks these difficulties can be avoided by adding a few bike lanes here and there is dreaming. There is a need for radical thinking. Cars and bicycles will be with us forever, and in greater numbers. Construction is inevitable, and mostly necessary. The need to separate cyclists and motorists for the safety of each increases each day.

While it is possible to sympathize with those who call for the re-education of drivers and cyclists, especially drivers, that’s a slow process. Too slow. And some people are never going to get it. So, maybe instead of thinking in terms of bicycle lanes we should be thinking in terms of bicycle streets. There’s separation for you. Select a downtown street and take the cars right off it. Bicyclists would thank you. So would motorists, who don’t like to contend with bicyclists any more than bicyclists like to contend with motorists. Who would object? Not motorists and cyclists. Downtown merchants, maybe. They’ve had a lot to put up with in recent years and this is one more. But in the long run anything that makes getting downtown easier and more pleasant is in their best interests. Those located along the designated bicycle street will learn that cyclists spend money too. Partly because of fitness concerns, partly because of hard economic times, there are more bicyclists on the streets. And there will be even more in the future. Since downtown is in turmoil anyway, this is the perfect time for radical experimentation. Next on the agenda is finding a safer way for cyclists to get downtown, as well as to

suburban busy spots. Yes, there are some bicycle paths and these are well-used, but there are still bicyclists on Carling Avenue and Scott Street and other overcrowded and sometimes narrow arterials. These, in addition to bringing a shudder to anyone who sees them, demonstrate that there is a need for safer alternatives. So maybe add in a bicycle-only arterial or two. Not many, but at least a couple. I know. Think of the adjustments that would be necessary. But you know, as a city we’re adjusting all the time, and we can handle it.

Letter: Concern about safety of park users and walkers Editor: Thank you for reporting on the concerns expressed at the last Stittsville Village Association (SVA) meeting about the proposal to build on the wetland between Elm Crescent and Fernbank Road in Stittsville, the socalled “Cypress Gardens 3” and the SVA’s support of the local community’s efforts to have it stopped. The most worrying part of the proposal is indeed the thinking that it is possible to remove the water from this area, let alone without causing problems in the immediately surrounding community and woods already owned by the city of Ottawa as well as the proposed new houses. The surrounding community believes it is neither feasible nor desirable to make the attempt for reasons oftstated at public meetings and plan-

ning meetings and in print. The water will continue to flow and spring up somewhere, likely into the adjoining properties. It could be very disruptive, though, of Poole Creek and the wells currently still in use in this area and cause them to dry up or become polluted. This was comprehensively explained at the SVA meeting by local resident Glen McDonald. However, I’d like to correct a misconception that seems to have crept into the discussion of anticipated traffic regarding this ill-advised development. While turning onto Stittsville Main Street from Elm Crescent can be and often is a time consuming and frustrating activity, it is far from being the major cause for concern. The greatest traffic worry that the

local community feels and has expressed is the amount of traffic from 148 proposed new homes (some 225 cars, as you say) turning on and off Elm Crescent from the proposed Hemlock Road beside a right angle curve, across from a children’s playground and a public park that alternately is soccer field and ice rink – not to mention the Canada Post pick-up right there too. If I was taken to have said otherwise at the SVA meeting, then I must have misspoken. We have a very serious and valid concern for neighbourhood children who play there, kids and teens who walk or bike along the road to get there or somewhere else, and parents or sitters with young children in strollers, not to mention the large number of walkers, sometimes quite elderly, with or without dogs,

Notice of Completion Carlington Heights Pump Station Site Upgrade Class Environmental Assessment Report Available for Review The City of Ottawa has completed a Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) study for the Carlington Heights Pump Station Site Upgrade. This project is needed to improve the reliability of water supply to about one third of the City’s distribution system, and to provide additional capacity needed to accommodate future urban growth. This project has been planned as Schedule ‘B’ projects under the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment document (2007). The purpose of the Class EA study was to confirm project need and justification, document existing environmental conditions, examine alternatives and potential impacts, and recommend a preferred site upgrade alternative. Copies of the Carlington Heights Pump Station Site Upgrade Environmental Assessment Study Report are available for review at the following locations: City Hall Client Service Centre 110 Laurier Avenue West Ottawa, ON K1P 1J1 Tel.

who pass my house on Elm Crescent across from the park, many of them several times daily. The hazard of even 100 more cars trying to drive through while these people are using the road and during practice and game times in both winter and summer, with cars parked on both sides of the street, is a scary thought. We’d much rather have all these pedestrian and bicycle users alive than dead. The parking lot itself at the park, while a respectable size, is often not able to hold all the gamerelated cars and, indeed, is reduced to half its summer size each fall in preparation for winter activities. Consider also that any potential reduction of the traffic problem resulting from a second entrance to the proposed development from Fern-

bank Road, if that becomes possible and accepted, could well result in more traffic from the existing neighbourhood going through the area along Hemlock Road to access Fernbank Road instead of waiting to get onto Stittsville Main Street from Elm Crescent or Bell Street. The opposition to this proposed development is well founded, well analysed and well thought through and should play a major role in any review of the application as the city is doing. There is enormous concern about the lack of wisdom in thinking to replace this natural water and woodland feature with any houses, let alone 148. Keldine FitzGerald Elm Crescent Stittsville

CITY OF OTTAWA NOTICE OF PROPOSED ZONING AMENDMENT In accordance with Section 34(10.7)(a) of the Planning Act and Section 3.(1) of Ontario Regulation 545/06, notice is hereby provided that a zoning by-law amendment proposal is being considered by the Planning and Growth Management Department at the City of Ottawa. LANDS SUBJECT TO THE PROPOSAL The zoning amendment proposal affects the entire territory of the City of Ottawa. PURPOSE AND EFFECT OF THE PROPOSED AMENDMENT The proposed amendment comes in response to direction by Ottawa City Council on April 24, 2013, requesting “a study in respect of the land use planning policies associated with the conversion of low-density residential uses to increase the number of dwelling units to three or more for the purposes of assessing the land use planning impact of such developments and establishing further zoning standards to help ensure their compatibility.” The proposed amendment will eliminate the distinction between conversions that increase the number of dwelling units in existing dwellings and new construction in the Zoning By-law. As a result, a dwelling that is modified to increase the number of dwelling units will be subject to the same zoning provisions (including the required setbacks, side yards, height limits, minimum lot dimensions, landscaping and parking) as a dwelling that was purpose-built with that many dwelling units. The proposed amendment will establish limits on the number of rooming units permitted in a Converted Rooming House in the R4 (Residential Fourth Density) zones, and modify the limits on this use in the R3 (Residential Third Density) zones. This use will be limited to a maximum of seven rooming units in these zones. The proposed amendment will also introduce a minimum requirement for amenity areas in the rear yard at grade for Rooming Houses, Converted Rooming Houses, Three-unit Dwellings and Low-rise Apartment Dwellings in residential zones. Amenity space of 15m2 per dwelling unit for the first eight dwelling units would be required. Rooming Houses and Converted Rooming Houses would require 7.5m2 of amenity space for the first eight rooming units, plus 3m2 per rooming unit thereafter. FURTHER INFORMATION

On the day of Mark’s funeral, a few local farmers got together and suggested that they honour Mark by organizing an appropriate funeral procession. What they likely didn’t realize is that nearly 100 tractors would assemble on First Line Road and create a procession that stretched from First Line Road to Second Line Road, a 1.5km stream of farm machinery along Roger Stevens Drive. Later that week, our local farming community came together for Mark and his family once again when combine after combine made their way to the Lindsay farm and harvested their crops all in one day. This display of selflessness is what makes a rural community and I couldn’t think of a more fitting way to honour the loss of one of our own.

Ian Frei will be the Society’s president for 2014, with others on the executive being Penny Horeczy as vicepresident, Janet Walker as secretary, John Soar as treasurer and Lee Boltwood as immediate past president. Directors for 2014 will be Ron Maybury, Janet Walker, Arlene Sheppard, Judith Cox, Vivian McLean, Margret Farr and Lee Boltwood. Doreen Bell is an honourary lifetime director of the Society.

Sacred Heart students help out homeless youth John Curry

News - A homeless youth in Ottawa will be able to have a home for a year after a group of students from Sacred Heart Catholic High School in Stittsville went homeless for a night. In participating in the recent fundraising and awareness raising event called “Sleepout for Youth” hosted by the Youth Services Board of Ottawa, these Sacred Heart students – 26 in all – raised $3,600 which was $400 more than its fundraising goal. The group had set its goal at $3,200 because this is the money required to provide one homeless youth with temporary housing for a year. So one homeless youth is going to benefit from this effort by Sacred Heart students, with a little bit left over. Last year this “Sleepout for Youth” event raised $35,000 and this year’s event will be exceeding this total, perhaps by as much as three times. Taylor Cavanagh, one of the student organizers for this event at Sacred Heart, had heard about the event through a grandparent and wanted to become involved. She approached teachers and publicized it around the school, with about 40 students turning out to an organization meeting. Ultimately, with two teachers stepping forward to be involved, Sacred Heart could only involve 26 students in the event which took place overnight on Nov. 14/15 at Festival Plaza at Ottawa city hall. Evan Bunkis, another of the students involved in the event, said that there were two goals involved in the student participation in the event. One was to raise funds to support a

It is considered that there are over 1,000 homeless youth in the city at any one time. The Sacred Heart students did fundraising around the school, holding a bake sale, a pancake breakfast, a draw and a hat day. It also had some sponsors such as Scotiabank which provided $1,000 in matching funds. The students helped raise awareness of the issue of homeless youth in Ottawa when they went around to

each class in the school, telling about the situation and promoting their fundraising events. It must have worked because the group received a lot of support from the Sacred Heart student community. On the night of the sleepout at Ottawa city hall, the students also were able to raise awareness of the situation regarding homeless youth in the city simply by talking with people who were walking by the tent city at Festival Plaza. The Sacred Heart students set

up several tents at city hall for the overnight sleepout. Throughout the evening, there were speakers on the topic and some entertainment. In the morning, there was breakfast waiting for the students. The night turned out to be fairly mild but it was still cold sleeping in the tents. Taylor Cavanagh noted that the students were able to brush their teeth and use the washroom at city hall, something that true homeless youth cannot even do. After the morning breakfast and a

couple of more speeches including one from mayor Jim Watson, the students travelled back to Sacred Heart, attending school and not going directly home. That’s because this is what many homeless youth have to do – go to school after a night sleeping outside. Aidan Horvath, one of the students involved in organizing Sacred Heart’s participation, noted that the participants came to realize how fortunate they are in having a home to go to. “We take it for granted we have a home,” he said. “A lot of people don’t.” Aidan noted that the Sacred Heart students, through their fundraising, have been able to make a big change in the life of at least one homeless youth. “It was like an awareness trip,” Evan Bunkis said about the sleepout experience. And David Durst, another student who worked on helping to organize Sacred Heart’s participation in the event, declared that the sleepout was “a good eye opening experience.” He said that it was a really beneficial experience for students on a personal level. It’s “kids helping kids,” Taylor Cavanagh declared, noting that the Sacred Heart group was the sixth top fundraising group in the event. She said that the event was both fun and rewarding. This year’s students are hoping that participation in this “Sleepout for Youth” event will become an annual happening at Sacred Heart. Two of this year’s organizers, Taylor Cavanagh and David Durst, will still be at the school next year and undoubtedly will be involved.

As thick black smoke poured from doors and windows of the 140-year-old building, volunteer firefighters Brian Danson, Rob Hartnett, and Paul Lamothe entered the burning building to search for occupants.

Silver medal for Rockets at Cornwall tournament Special to the News

Sports - It is one of the largest girls hockey tournaments in Ontario. And it was where the Goulbourn Rockets Novice 1 team launched itself into the outer space of medals. And, but for a goal scored with less than 20 seconds to go in the championship final, the Goulbourn Rockets might just have landed with a gold medal. As it was, the Rockets ended up with a silver medal, a better result than happened to 14 other teams in the tournament. Not bad for a team from the Goulbourn Girls Hockey Association, not yet two years old itself. This all happened at the recent girls hockey tournament in Cornwall where the Rockets went up against teams from much larger organizations such as those in Cornwall, Kanata and Nepean. In round robin play, the Rockets went undefeated, allowing only two goals against thanks to Olivia Nystedt’s work between the pipes and an impenetrable defense. The Rockets entered the sudden death playoff round as the tournament’s second seed. Playing the seventh seeded Nepean Wildcats in quarter-final playoff action, the Rockets emerged victorious thanks to a hat trick by Abby Tate and solid goaltending by Olivia Nystedt. In semi-final playoff action, the Rockets went up against the Kanata Rangers, with Olivia Nystedt getting a shutout and Abby Tate once again leading the scoring for the Rockets who won by a 2-0 score. So, this led the Goulbourn Rock-

ets to the championship final of this premier tournament – what an accomplishment for an organization in existence for less than two years. In the championship final, the Rockets went up against the powerhouse Cornwall squad. Playing in their sixth game in three days, the Rockets opened the scoring in this championship game and were tied going into the third period. Down 4-2 with less than five minutes left in the game, the Rockets showed their true grit. Emmy Blauer swept behind the Cornwall net and tucked the puck away on the short side. It was 4-3 and the Rockets were not yet finished. With goalie Olivia Nystedt pulled from the net, the Rockets came back. Abby Tate broke down the left wing and ripped one to the short side. Suddenly it was all tied up. In less than five minutes, the Rockets had come from a two goal deficit to even up the game. Overtime loomed. But, alas, it was not to be. Cornwall, to its credit, came back to score with less than 20 seconds to go in the game to snatch the victory and a 5-4 win in this championship game. So it was gold medals to Cornwall and silver medals to the Goulbourn Rockets. Abby Tate, Olivia Nystedt and Emmy Blauer of the Rockets were all voted to the all-tournament team. Olivia Nystedt led all goalies in the tournament with three shutouts in six games. Abby Tate emerged as the tournament’s leading scorer.

JJs at Ottawa Little Theatre News - The Junior Jubilees, the youth choir associated with the Goulbourn Jubilee Singers, are going to be participating in a production of the Christmas classic “A Charlie Brown Christmas” at the Ottawa Little Theatre. The JJs, as they are known, will be performing in “A Charlie Brown Christmas” on Saturday, Dec. 7 at 1 p.m. There are two shows that day but the JJs are only singing in the 1 p.m. show. Another youth choir will be performing at the other show. The production is a fundraiser for the Ottawa International Children’s Festival. It will feature the accompaniment of the Guaraldi Jazz Trio for whom the music in the production was

originally composed. More information and tickets are available through the website http:// “A Charlie Brown Christmas” was the first prime time animated TV special based upon the comic strip Peanuts by Charles M. Schulz, first shown in 1965. It has become an annual traditional Christmas offering on TV. The story touches on the commercialization and secularism of Christmas, reminding viewers of the true meaning of Christmas. The musical soundtrack to “A Charlie Brown Christmas” by jazz composer Vince Guaraldi has become as well known as the story itself. “Christmas Time Is Here” has become a popular Christmas tune.

News - It was just one month to Christmas Eve and the Christmas excitement and spirit was alive at the Goulbourn Museum last Sunday afternoon. There were youngsters everywhere, having a ball making various Christmas-related crafts at the final family craft day of 2013 at the Museum. Called “Winter Wonderland,” this family craft day focused on making holiday crafts. Youngsters could make little drums, complete with a pair of drumsticks on top. Or they could make a little reindeer face that could be hung on a Christmas tree or used as napkin ring. Or there was also the chance to create a folded paper green Christmas tree, adorned with an assortment of sparklies. Parents and Museum staff were present and able to help the children in realizing their creations. These family craft days which are held at the Goulbourn Museum are geared for youngsters ages 4 to 11 years. Registration is required and there is a $3 per child registration fee.

This takeover came in the form of the annual Season’s Greetings Craft Fair which operated on both days from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The hall was filled with a plethora of crafts and gift items, all of which might be great to find under the Christmas tree with your name on them. And the season’s first fall of snow on Saturday at noon just added to the Christmas atmosphere of the event, as the falling snow floating

to earth could be seen easily out of the large windows lining the front side of the hall. There was homemade fudge, wooden toys, paintings, stuffed toys, jewellery, children’s clothing, wreaths, stained glass, cloth handbags, ornaments, aprons, soap, gourmet dessert squares, towels, socks, toques, sweaters, mitts, candles, cards and jellies, among other things. It was like having numerous stores, all under one roof. This Season’s Greetings Craft Fair, organized by Gord Caffery of Kanata, serves as a fundraiser for the Ottawa Humane Society, with donations for the Society being accepted at the event.

Candlelit vigil on Friday, Dec. 6th in memory of Montreal Massacre

News – On Friday, Dec. 6, the Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre will light 14 candles in memory of the women killed in the Montreal Massacre. A 15th flame will be lit for all women who are impacted by domestic violence. This is an annual vigil held on the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women to

honour the women killed in 1989 at Ecole Polytechnique in Montreal. The vigil is held to draw attention to the issue of violence against women, hopefully taking away the stigma of “Keep your mouth shut, don’t tell anybody” that prevents women from stepping forward when domestic violence does happen. The vigil, in the form of an outdoor candlelit ceremony followed by an indoor reception, will be held at the

Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre headquarters site at 2 MacNeil Court beside Castlefrank Road just north of Hazeldean Road in Kanata, starting at 5 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 6. Everyone, including men, are welcome to attend the vigil. The Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre, which serves the west Ottawa area including Stittsville, operates a violence against women program.

Ogilvie Mercedes Benz Celebrates the Arrival of the 2014 S-Class Ogilvie Mercedes Benz Reveal Event by Brian Turner Mercedes Benz is returning to its rightful place as an automotive leader in ways that mark both the best of the past and future in an industry that defines change. On November 14th, Ogilvie Mercedes Benz in Ottawa invited its customers, clients, and the press to an event that few auto-makers sadly seem to take the time to offer any more; an evening dedicated to the launch of a new model. Few of our current generation have ever experienced the excitement that auto-makers and car dealerships use to create when the new models arrived. Our parents and grandparents can remember when, every fall their neighbourhood retailers would paper over the windows of their showrooms and send out hand-written invitations to their customers for a special evening when the new models would be revealed. Everyone would be caught up in the excitement and wonder what wheeled marvels were hidden behind the blacked-out windows. Water-cooler talk would be dominated by speculation on new body styles, engine options, and prices as the day approached. Perhaps our current generation has been jaded by the onslaught of multi and social media advertising and many retailers and automakers alike can be excused for thinking progress has taken its toll and there really is no excitement anymore when a smart-phone can provide all the details. Mercedes Benz and their dealer group are the carmaker that marked the beginning of the automotive age over 125 years ago. It’s fitting that they still honour the traditions that mean the difference between utilitarian transport and the art and sport of motoring. Mercedes believes that people deserve the option of choosing a vehicle that

not only efficiently moves them and their passengers in safety and style but pays tribute to the craftsmanship of designers, engineers, and the tradespersons that create their products. The staff at Ogilvie Mercedes Benz are united in their belief that we all deserve to drive the best vehicles available today as well as being treated to an ownership experience second to none. In their newly renovated and expanded St. Laurent Blvd. facilities, the owners, management, and staff at Ogilvie Mercedes Benz welcomed their guests to experience the peak of automotive accomplishment in the forms of the2014 S-class full-size sedans and the CLA 250 mid-sized autos. The parallels between the S Class flagship sedans and Ogilvie Mercedes are worth noting. The S550-4Matic (equipped with Mercedes patented all-wheel drive system) is available in a long wheelbase version with a reconfigured and opulent interior to provide expansive limo roominess in the passenger rear seat position. Ogilvie Mercedes has also under

gone two phases of a multi-million dollar expansion and redesign of every customer department to bring the same personally welcoming touches to an expanding client family. Sales director, Leslie Mise, noted at the event that Mercedes is reaching out to a much wider and diverse demographic starting with younger professionals and growing families. “The outdated image of Mercedes Benz as an automaker for the elite has been replaced with overwhelming consumer acceptance of this iconic firm as a global supplier of vehicles for almost every need and budget. Our increase in sales and market-share in this region is mirrored in every major centre across the country.” The S-class group of vehicles receives two great power-plants in the form of a twin-turbocharged 4.6 L gasoline V8 and a 577 hp 5.5 L for the sportier AMG version. These single-craftsman built engines provide efficient power along with the confidence of a finely tuned suspension system and drive-line.

Ogilvie Mercedes as well is flexing its power (buying power that is) by being able to bring all the most popular models to its facility, thanks to recording-setting sales. Mercedes Benz Canada is providing generous and early allocations of their newest vehicles so that Ogilvie Mercedes customers have access to the best. And Mercedes assemblers are proud to sign every engine they build. Ogilvie clients receive the confidence of having a personal transportation relationship with Canada’s leader in customer satisfaction. The interior of the S-class has been thoughtfully designed and crafted to provide all the information that a driver needs, without distraction. It’s multitude of technology-leading safety systems include collision mitigation, infrared night vision sensors, autonomous braking systems for both vehicle and pedestrian collision avoidance. These features mirror the care that each member of the Ogilvie team takes whether dealing with a comprehensive pre-owned vehicle protection package, or helping a customer select the correct winter tires, or even demonstrating an advanced heated wiper and washer system that beats any Canadian winter drive cold. Just as every Mercedes product is imagined, designed and constructed to excel at its job; Ogilvie Mercedes’ team, facility and operating philosophy been designed to provide seamless, comfortable, and personal access to the best team of trained service and technology professionals, sales and parts consultants in the country. Contact them today and find out why driving the best doesn’t have to cost the most. Ogilvie Mercedes is located at 1110 St. Laurent Blvd (just north of the Queensway) and can be reached at 613-745-9000 or found online at R0012435038/1128

News - Signs like the one along Stittsville Main Street at Bell Memorial Park in Stittsville warn that Stittsville Main Street will be closed to traffic from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. this Saturday, Nov. 30. And the reason? Well, only just

about the most spectacular and watched community event in Stittsville in a year, the annual Christmas Parade of Lights which will be making its way along Stittsville Main Street beginning at 6 p.m. It is expected that there will be over 60 lighted floats and entries in this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parade, creating a flotilla of Christmas lights as they move along

graduate. Volunteers looking after these barricades are provided with a safety vest by the SVA to ensure their protection and safety and also to identify them as persons of authority. The only requirement is that the person be at least 16 years of age if not accompanied by an adult. Those who would like to volunteer to help looking after a parade route barricade should contact SVA director Tanya Hein at 613-686-1842 or via email at paradeoflights@travnet. org or Marilyn Jenkins at 613-8365075 or via email at jenkinsdm1@ . The Christmas Parade of Lights will be taking place this Saturday, Nov. 30 at 6 p.m. this year. The parade route runs along Stittsville Main Street, starting at the Ottawa Carleton District School Board depot parking lot and moving southward along the street, through the Stittsville Main Street/Abbott Street intersection where there is always a public address commentary about the floats and on to the Carleton Cathcart Street intersection where the parade ends.

along Stittsville Main Street. Walking in the parade, assisted by members of the Kanata Stallions junior hockey team, will be members of the Stittsville District Lions Club who will be collecting food and donations for the Stittsville Food Bank. Some volunteers from the community willing to look after the traffic barricades along the route are still needed. And they are a necessity as the city of Ottawa requires that SVA station volunteers be at every blocked off side street and major commercial parking lot entrance along the parade route. These volunteers are to ensure that the barricades keeping traffic off Stittsville Main Street at parade time are respected by motorists. Being a volunteer at these barricades has the advantage that it provides the volunteers with a great viewing spot for the parade â&#x20AC;&#x201C; right there along the route, with a clear view. In addition, it is an opportunity for those with high school aged children to do something together with them with the added bonus that the students will receive credit for volunteer hours, something needed to

It can be brooches, rings, necklaces, earrings, bracelets â&#x20AC;&#x201C; you name it and it will go in the sale. Eva will gladly pick up any donations.

News - Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be a jamboree of jewellery, no doubt about it. Thanks to the generosity of so many in Stittsville and all across the Ottawa area, Sacred Heart High School student Eva von Jagow has now collected at least 10,000 pieces of used jewellery to sell at her upcoming jewellery sale at the Goulbourn Recreation Complex on Saturday, Dec. 7 from 8 a.m. to 12 noon. She also has received at least 500 handbags/purses to be sold as well as the event. All of the proceeds from this jewellery sale, which is being called â&#x20AC;&#x153;All that Glam,â&#x20AC;? will be going to fund a breakfast program at Sakku School in Coral Harbour in Nunavut. Eva had been hoping to gather up 1,000 pieces of jewellery for her sale. But on hearing about her project, so many people have come forward and donated pieces of jewellery for the sale with the total now around 10,000 pieces. Among the 10,000 pieces are numerous quality pieces, so you will have plenty of choice and selection when you visit the sale on Saturday, Dec. 7.

The jewellery is being sorted into various categories such as long necklaces, short necklaces, rings, bracelets, earrings and more. But all of this outpouring of support to help fund a program that will feed hungry children in Nunavut will go for naught if people do not turn out for the sale and make purchases. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great opportunity to acquire some wonderful jewellery at most reasonable prices while knowing that the funds generated will be going to help fund a breakfast program for 280 students in a school in Nunavut. This idea came to Eva last summer when she was helping her mother Karen organize her jewellery and noticing that her mother had a number of pieces of jewellery that she no longer wore. Eva ďŹ gured that other women would have jewellery in the same situation â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 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. 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

Blood donor clinics coming in Stittsville and Richmond Special to the News

News - Community blood donor clinics are coming up in both Stittsville and Richmond in December. Held by Canadian Blood Services, these two clinics will be among a host of such donor clinics being held by Canadian Blood Services through Ottawa and the area in December. Other locations include Cornwall, Barryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bay, Eganville, Alfred, Manotick, Alexandria, Prescott, North Gower, Almonte, Greely and Hawkesbury besides numerous locations in the city of Ottawa. The community blood donor clinic in Stittsville will take place on Wednesday, Dec. 18 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the gymnasium at Holy Spirit Catholic School on Stittsville Main Street in Stittsville. As for Richmond, the community blood donor clinic there will take place on Monday, Dec. 9 from 4:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in the parish hall at St. Philip Catholic Church at the corner of Burke Street and

Fortune Street in the village. All blood donations at community blood donor clinics held by Canadian Blood Services are most appreciated because every minute of every day in Canada, someone needs blood and the only way that the blood is available when needed is through the generosity and caring of blood donors who willingly attend community blood donor clinics to donate blood. Holiday periods like the upcoming Christmas season are particularly challenging times in maintaining a suitable and adequate supply of blood for hospital operations which is why a good turnout at Decemberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s blood donor clinics is so important. It often requires many units of blood to help just one patient. A car accident victim, for example, can need up to 50 units of blood which means 50 blood donations are needed just to help that one patient. Leukemia patients can need as many as eight units of blood a week as part of their treat-

Special to the News

News - An evening of a cappella song will be happening in Stittsville on Tuesday, Dec. 10. That’s when the “Chapman Mills Sound Connection” will be in Stittsville to present a concert of upbeat familiar music interspersed with some Christmas songs and carols. In addition, this approximately 25 voice chorus will have two bar-

Stittsville United Church on Fernbank Road just west of Stittsville Main Street. And what is an added plus to this evening of unforgettable a cappella barbershop music is that the price of admission is simply a non-perishable food item from everyone who attends. These food items collected as the price of admission will be divided equally between the Stittsville

and Barrhaven Food Banks. The “Chapman Mills Sound Connection” is a competitive singing group. Last year it came within one and a half points of earning the right to compete in the Internationals in Orlando, Florida. This was considered extraordinary for a chorus that is only three years old. This winter, “Chapman Mills Sound Connection” will be competing against up to 16 other groups in the Area Competition of Harmony Inc. which is being held in Portland, Maine.

The “Chapman Mills Sound Connection” is holding this concert “We Need A Little Christmas” to become better known in the areas surrounding Barrhaven where it is already well known. The concert will also help the Stittsville and Barrhaven Food Banks. After the concert on Tuesday, Dec. 10, there will be refreshments served in the downstairs hall at the church. For more information about this concert, please contact Joan Palmer of Stittsville at 613-836-4126.

Stittsville Spartans are champs

Prospects Games coming up

Sports - When a team outscores the opposition by 34 goals to just 3, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good chance that victories will follow. Even how about five wins in a row! Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just what the Stittsville Spartans Atom A1 team did in capturing the championship at the recent 38th annual Orleans Atom House Tournament. Thanks to a strong offence that produced 34 goals in five games and an equally strong defense that allowed only three goals in these same five games, the Stittsville Spartans proved to be unstoppable at they skated their way as a team to the tournament championship. Cohesive team play was a key to this dominating performance which results in the tournament championship.

Sports -The Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey league is holding its Prospects Games on Saturday, Dec. 7 at the JR Brisson Complex in Casselman. In this game, the top 16 and 17 year old players in the league will meet in a couple of games. In game one at 4:30 p.m., the top prospects from the Valley Division, in which the Stittsville Royals play, will face the top prospects from the Rideau Division. In the second game at 7:15 p.m., the top prospects from the Metro Division will square off against the top prospects from the St. Lawrence Division. Admission to these Prospects Games is $10 for adults, $7 for students and seniors and $5 for children 12 and under. Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League season passes will be honoured at the door.

Perthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s three goal outburst in third period leads to 5-3 loss for Royals

Sports - The Stittsville Royals took a 3-2 lead into the third period of last Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League against the hometown Perth Blue Wings last Friday but a three goal outburst by the Blue Wings in the final period handed the Royals a 5-3 defeat. Perth had jumped into a 2-0 lead with only 22 seconds gone in the second period but then

the Royals struck for three straight goals to take a 3-2 lead into the third period. After a scoreless first half of the third period, Perth scored twice in less than three minutes to take a 4-3 lead. An empty net goal by Perth with only seven seconds to play sealed the fate for the visiting Royals. Scoring for the Royals in this game were Kevin Groulx, Jake Oliver and Jordan Cale. Earning assists were Tanner Knight, Kevin Groulx, Talmadge Farnes, Jeremy Nichols and

Blake Martyniuk. The Royals took 33 shots at the Perth net in this game while the Perth Blue Wings had 40 shots at Royals goalie Quinten Abrams. Seventeen of the Perth shots came in the third period. Last Sunday afternoon at the Goulbourn Recreation Complex on Shea Road, the Stittsville Royals fell 6-1 to the visiting Ottawa Canadians. The Canadians jumped out into a 4-0 lead with less than seven minutes gone in the second period. Stittsville tallied later in the sec-

ond period on a goal by Steve Genier assisted by Kevin Groulx. But this was all the scoring that the Royals could muster in this game. The Canadians scored another two goals in the third period to end up winning by a 6-1 score. The Canadians directed 41 shots at Royals goalie Patrick Kealey while the Royals had 32 shots on the Ottawa net. There were 114 minutes in penalties handed out during the game with some of the offenses being fighting and roughing. )'."& )-"& $)+"&

Musical â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;CATSâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; on stage at Sacred Heart John Curry

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The cats take over the stage at Sacred Heart Catholic High School in Stittsville this week. Students are presenting the musical â&#x20AC;&#x153;CATSâ&#x20AC;? four times â&#x20AC;&#x201C; starting on Wednesday, Nov. 27 and continuing through to this Saturday, Nov. 30. All are 7 p.m. curtain times except for the Saturday matinee which sees the curtain go up at 1 p.m. Everyone in the community welcome to attend. Tickets are a reasonable $15 for adults and $10 for seniors and students. Tickets will be available at the door or are available now at

the school on Abbott Street. There is plenty of free parking around the school. The musical â&#x20AC;&#x153;CATSâ&#x20AC;? opened on Broadway in 1982 and continued to run until 2000. The musical has been presented in about 250 cities around the globe, although the title of the show, â&#x20AC;&#x153;CATS,â&#x20AC;? has always remained the same â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it has never been translated. The musical â&#x20AC;&#x153;CATSâ&#x20AC;? tells the story of a tribe of cats called the Jellicles and the night they make what is known as â&#x20AC;&#x153;the Jellicle choiceâ&#x20AC;? and decide which cat will ascend to the Heaviside Layer and come back to a new life. The musicalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best known song is â&#x20AC;&#x153;Memoryâ&#x20AC;? which has been recorded by over 150 art-

ists ranging from Barbra Streisand and Johnny Mathis to Barry Manilow. The musical was composed by Andrew Lloyd Webber based on â&#x20AC;&#x153;Old Possumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Book of Practical Cats,â&#x20AC;? a book of verse written by T.S. Eliot in 1939. T. S. Eliot was an essayist, publisher, playwright, literary and social critic and one of the twentieth centuryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s major poets, having been born in 1914 and dying in 1965. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature

in 1948 for his contribution to poetry. â&#x20AC;&#x153;CATSâ&#x20AC;? has won numerous awards including Best Musical at both the Laurence Olivier Awards and the Tony Awards. â&#x20AC;&#x153;CATSâ&#x20AC;? is only one of the hit musicals composed by Andrew Lloyd Webber. His other musicals include The Phantom of the Opera; Jesus Christ Superstar; Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Cry for Me, Argentina; Evita; and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat.

Music playing, snowflakes falling for bazaar John Curry

News - The setting was just idyllic. There was Christmas music wafting over the grounds of St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church at the corner of Stittsville Main Street and Mulkins Street in Stittsville, pouring out of a speaker system. And if this were not enough to get you in the Christmas spirit, snow-

flakes started falling, covering the ground with a white sheet while filling the air with these soft, drifting bearers of the Christmas spirit. Put these two things together, as happened last Saturday for the Christmas bazaar, bake sale and luncheon inside the church, and you know that everyone had been infected with the Christmas spirit even before stepping foot in the church hall. And then when they did enter the hall – well, it was like a Christmas

morning under the Christmas tree. There was a wide selection of baked goodies and treats. Santa himself would have loved to stop at a place like this on his Christmas Eve rounds. But there was also a selection of items for sale, something for everyone at the white elephant tables, ranging from 25 cents or five for one dollar up to one dollar to three dollars to five dollars per item. Lots of choice and great prices!

There was also preserves, jewellery and other offerings. Then there was a selection of gift baskets containing items donated by members of the congregation. Some of these items were new, never used, while

others were gently used. Featured in the midst of all of this was a number of tables where people could enjoy a hot luncheon featuring Hawaiian meat balls with rice, salad, a dinner roll, dessert and a beverage.


With coffee jugs at the ready and sporting colourful green seasonal Enjoying the hot luncheon served as part of the Christmas bazaar, bake sale and luncheon at St. Andrew’s aprons as they serve at the luncheon at the Christmas bazaar, bake Presbyterian Church in Stittsville last Saturday are, from left, four year old Gabriella Flemke who is wearing sale and luncheon at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church in Stittsville last Saturday are Katrina Leaman, left, and Ashley Paul, right. a Santa hat; Jenn Flemke, Karl Flemke and Hilary Dick.

Assembly on ‘responsibility’ John Curry

News - TV host David Letterman has his top ten list. Not to be outdone, as it were, Ottawa Public Health nurse Carrie Innes has what amounts to a top six list which includes a half dozen things that people can do to be as healthy as possible. She presented this list at a school assembly dealing with the character trait of “responsibility” at A. Lorne Cassidy Elementary School in Stittsville last Friday. Leading off the list is “wash your hands.” She noted that germs make people sick and touching items which have germs can lead to getting these germs and the ensuing sickness. Ms. Innes recommended using hand sanitizer throughout the day but added that it is still important to wash your hands with soap and water, particularly after going to the bathroom or if your hands are dirty. “Eat healthy foods” is nurse Innes’ second tip on her list. She said that any meal should include at least three

of the four food groups and should always include a fruit or vegetable. She also noted that water, milk and 100 percent juices are the best things to drink. “I did not say pop. I did not say Gatorade,” she reminded the students. “Brush and floss your teeth” is her third tip, saying that you should brush your teeth at least two times a day for two minutes duration. She said that flossing the teeth is also a very important thing to do. “Be active” is the next tip on her list, saying that this means 60 minutes of physical activity every day. She noted that walking to school can be fun and is a physical activity that can be done. “Preventing injuries” is her fifth tip, ensuing that you keep safe. She said that wearing a bicycle helmet is one of the best things to do in this regard but cautioned that the helmet must be worn properly to be effective. “Be a good friend” is the sixth tip on nurse Innes’ top six list for healthy living. She said that friends are important to have as you are both a

healthier and happier person when you have good friends in your life. Besides hearing from Ottawa Public Health nurse Carrie Innes, students at this “responsibility” assembly also heard from two other guest speakers, Ottawa Police Services Constable Carrie Archibald who is the School Resource Officer for A. Lorne Cassidy Elementary School, and Jeff Herlihey, a fire prevention officer with Ottawa Fire Services. Constable Archibald reminded the students that part of responsible behaviour is knowing what is bullying and preventing it. Bullying is intentionally causing harm to another, usually repeated over time, she said. It can be physical or verbal or even exclusion i.e. deliberately excluding someone from a group activity. There’s also cyberbullying which happens on the internet. Constable Archibald said that bullies are not tolerated because it is important that everyone feel and be safe at school. She urged the students to be responsible in their actions, words and treatment of oth-

ers. Another component of responsible behaviour involves fire safety and that’s what Ottawa Fire Services fire prevention officer Jeff Herlihey spoke to the students about. He gave commentary on a video which showed how a fire spreads from being just small to engulfing a while room in just minutes. He noted that smoke alarms, which should be on every level of a home, warn people if there is smoke and a fire. Mr. Herlihey said that every home should have a fire escape plan worked out in advance. He warned about never going back into a burning building to try to save something like an ipad since a fire can grow quickly and trap a person. He said that the number one cause of residential fires in Ontario is cooking, He demonstrated the best ways of putting out a fire on the stove – putting the lid on the pot, using baking soda or perhaps using a fire extinguisher. He warned that water should never be used to try to extinguish a grease fire because the water will make the fire become a fire ball which could injure a person. Mr. Herlihey also reminded the students of what to do if clothes catch on fire – “Stop,

drop and roll.” Principal Scott Martin of A. Lorne Cassidy Elementary School advised the students that they have some responsibilities as students: to try their best, to exercise self discipline, to be courteous to fellow students and to exercise proper hygiene. He said that if students follow such responsible behaviour, they will do well in school and in the community. The assembly began with a group of students, wear-

ing letters that collectively formed the word “Responsibility,” giving examples of responsible behaviour such as lining up when the school bell rings and taking care of toys at home. The assembly ended with a video called “Responsibility is following through.” Grade eight students Charlotte Blaiklock and KaleighAnn Nystedt were the MC’s for the assembly, making their announcements in a bilingual fashion.

mas Cheer fundraising, a pledge card and a return envelope. All of the funds raised through this mail campaign will go to the Richmond Food Bank and also to provide financial assistance to local families or individuals in need. Richmond Girl Guides and Pathfinders have been helping the Richmond District Lions Club with the preparations for this mail campaign for several years now. The Girl Guides and Pathfinders, along with the Lions members, enjoyed some pizza after preparing all of the letters for the mail-out. All of the mailing and printing costs associated with this mail campaign are raised by the Lions Club through its â&#x20AC;&#x153;Case for a Causeâ&#x20AC;? project collecting empties in Richmond. Those wishing to donate can return the donation in the pre-addressed return envelope which is being included in the letter being mailed out. The envelope can also be given to any member of the Richmond District Lions Club (no postage needed in such a case). Donations can also be given to one of the Lions Club members participating in the upcoming Santa Claus Parade in Richmond on Saturday, Dec. 7 which will travel from South Carleton High School along McBean Street and then along Perth Street to finish at the Richmond Plaza. Another alternative for making a donation is to drop the donation off to the Lions â&#x20AC;&#x153;Christmas Cheer Centralâ&#x20AC;? at D.E. Kinkade Konstruction Ltd. on Perth Street on Saturday, Dec. 7 between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. Or that same day, Saturday, Dec. 7, you can call 613-838-5252 with a pledge and a Lions Club member will drop by your home or business and pick up the donation. Lions Club member Bill Reid is chairing this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Christmas Cheer project for the Club. For years, the Richmond District Lions Club, along with other Lions Clubs in the Ottawa area, participated in the annual Christmas Cheer Broadcast on radio station CFRA, hosted by the West Ottawa Lions Club. But in 1999, the West Ottawa Lions Club discontinued the broadcast on CFRA. However, the need in local communities still continued. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why the Richmond District Lions Club has undertaken its own local Christmas Cheer effort in the years since 1999. The funds raised go to the Richmond Food Bank and to help community residents who may be in need. The Richmond District Lions club is not a registered charity and thus cannot issue â&#x20AC;&#x153;Official Tax Receiptsâ&#x20AC;? for donations. But such receipts can be provided if a donor checks the appropriate space on the pledge form that is included with the mailout. The donation will then be designated specifically to the Richmond Food Bank which can issue such official tax recipts due to its relationship with St. Paulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s United Church where the Richmond Food Bank is located.

News - From one of the world’s most famous pieces of sacred music to a rousing singalong of the popular Christmas carol “Good King Wenceslas” to a host of other songs, some seasonal and some just wonderful music, this year’s Christmas-time concert of the Goulbourn Jubilee Singers proved to be a musical experience par excellence. And how could it not when the first half of the concert featured Antonio Vivaldi’s choral composition “Gloria,” one of the most familiar and popular pieces of sacred music ever written. A big fan of the “Gloria” is Goulbourn Jubilee Singers music director Linda Crawford who told the audience at last Saturday evening’s concert how uplifting she finds its music. “I find it very uplifting, perfect for the Christmas season,” she said while acknowledging that the “Gloria” was not written specifically for the Christmas season. She said that it was such a pleasure for the choir to be able to sing it at this concert. And what a presentation it was, starting off with a massed group including both the Goulbourn Jubilee Singers and its associated youth choir the Junior Jubilees or JJs singing the opening Gloria movement and featuring throughout the work’s subsequent movements not only the voices of the Goulbourn Jubilee Singers but also at times the solo voices of guest alto Annie Duchesnes and guest soprano Sarah Burnell. But this presentation of Vivaldi’s “Gloria” filled the Glen Cairn United Church, site of this year’s concert, not only with the melodic offerings of these voices but also with the instrumental sounds of a seven-member ensemble which accompanied the Jubilee Singers and the guest soloists. This ensemble included Nancy Eadie as concert master and lead violin, Alan Bowles as second violin, Julian Hughson on viola, Sandra Allan on cello, Judy Pentinga on oboe solo, John Worrell on oboe and Erna Poettcker, who is the Jubilee Singers’ regular accompanist, on organ. It all amounted to a performance that surely even composer Antonio Vivaldi (1678-1741), an Italian renowned for his sacred choral works and instrumental concertos, would have enjoyed and applauded. The audience certainly did, delivering resounding applause as the Jubilee Singers completed the “Gloria” with its famous final movement “Cum Sancto Spiritu” with its renowned sound. But the second and longer half of the concert more than held its own against this first half musical masterpiece. It had lots of musical gems of its own. There was not only the robust audience-participation singalong of “Good King Wenceslas,” a Christmas-time favourite written way back in 1853, but also numerous other memorable pieces, some traditional carols, some seasonal in spirit and some just enjoyable music for any season of the year. See JUBILEE SINGERS, page 45

Jubilee Singers concert filled with musical treats Continued from page 44

It was not only the Goulbourn Jubilee Singers who delivered this menu of musical melodies but also the Junior Jubilees whose two concert segments, one featuring four songs and the other three songs, added a youthful and engaging aspect to the concert. Wearing white tops accented with red scarves or ties, the 14 voices wowed the audience with pieces such as “Peaceful River” (“I’ve got peace like a river in my soul,” they sung) to “Ding! Dong! Merrily On High,” a traditional Christmas carol to their concluding trio of songs that featured Christmas, “Christmas Time Is Here,” “Winter Fantasy,” and “Share A Little Love This Christmas.” The inclusion of a segment of that good old Christmas ditty “Jingle Bells” in “Winter Fantasy” was a particular treat. And who could argue with the sentiment expressed in the JJs final song, “Share A Little Love This Christmas,” with its verse “When you share a little love, it’s Christmas all the time.” Another musical treat in this concert was the Goulbourn Jubilee Singers version of “I Saw Three Ships,” a traditional carol but with a Celtic spin on it thanks to an arrangement by Sarah Burnell, who was one of the soloists for the “Gloria” earlier in the concert and who is a noted celtic music performer with her band The Sarah Burnell Band. In this “Celtic version” of “I Saw Three Ships,” the Goulbourn Jubilee Singers were accompanied by a trio consisting of Nancy Eadie

on fiddle, Sarah Burnell herself on a bodhran (a hand-held drum of Irish origin) and Judy Pentinga on oboe. Other highlights in this half of the concert included the ladies of the Goulbourn Jubilee Singers singing “Tomorrow Shall Be My Dancing Day” accompanied by Nora Thompson on a drum, the singing of “Ave Maris Stella” by the men of the Goulbourn Jubilee Singers with Bryn Burnell as the soloist, and the choir’s renditions of “Northern Lights,” a worldwide hit by Norwegian composter Ola Gjeilo, and of “Frozen in Frobisher Bay,” a song composed by Canadian folk singer James Gordon and arranged by Sarah Burnell. The final song of the concert, “This Little Light of Mine,” involving both the Goulbourn Jubilee Singers and the JJs, had an upbeat focus, enhanced by periods of finger snapping by the JJ’s and punctuated by a rousing crescendo finishing flourish. No wonder a standing ovation followed this final song. This concert by the Goulbourn Jubilee Singers and the Junior Jubilees, entitled “Winterval,” was presented both last Saturday evening and last Sunday afternoon at the Glen Cairn United Church in Kanata which has been the performance venue for these singing groups for a number of years now. This will also be where the two singing groups will be presenting their planned 2014 spring concert on Saturday, May 3 and Sunday, May 4.

Stittsville Fury win peewee tournament in Russell Special to the News

Sports - Undefeated in round robin play. Fantastic. Scoring a goal with 1.4 seconds left in regulation time in the championship game to force overtime. Amazing. Scoring in the sudden-death shootout to capture the tournament championship. Awesome. This was the experience of the Stittsville Fury Peewee A1 team in the 2013 Fall Classic Peewee A House League Tournament held in Russell on the weekend of Nov. 15-17. It just couldn’t get any more exciting or nail-biting than what happened. It was in the championship final against Perth, which both teams entered undefeated, where the most drama happened. Perth scored on the first shift and dominated play in the first period, taking a 1-0 lead into the second period. Perth scored the only goal in this fast-paced second period to lead by a 2-0 score going into the third period. Would the Stittsville Fury be able to overcome this deficit or not? Late in the period, Brayden Pike of the Fury took the puck to the Perth net, a move which paid off as teammate Robert Banks found the back of the Perth net with the Fury’s first goal of the game. It was now 2-1 and the Fury were back in the game, with the players excited and feeling that “we can do this.” A comeback was in the air. But it was not easy. With less than 30 seconds to go in the game, The Fury finally got their goaltender out of the net for a sixth attacker – Enzo Kwindt. Perth was just about to clear the puck when a very tired Russell McK-

eage summed up the energy for one last fore check, knocking the puck out of the air with his hand. As the puck hit the ice, he quickly delivered a tape-to-tape pass to Kwindt who was in full strike, splitting the defence. He unloaded a rocket which went over the pad of the Perth goalie, tying the game with 1.4 seconds left on the clock and send the match into overtime. The three-on-three overtime was fast paced but settled nothing as it was scoreless. This meant sudden-death shootout time. Stittsville won the coin toss and elected to shoot first. It was Enzo Kwindt who got the nod for Stittsville. He wove his way over the blueline and pulled the puck back as if about to shoot a similar rocket shot like the one that sent the game into overtime. However, this time he faked the shot, deked and then lifted a backhand shot into the net over the goalie’s pad. This set the stage for the Perth shooter. Would he score or not? Would the game be over or not? Would the championship be Stittsville’s? The Perth skater raced in for a shootout shot. Stittsville goalie Julien Lachance edged out and time the play as he backed in towards his goal. He stood square and waited out the shooter. It was a shot to the five hole but Lachance shut it down, making the save and securing the victory for Stittsville. A dramatic 3-2 overtime, sudden death shootout victory! It doesn’t get any better than this! A memory that will last for the ages! The Stittsville Fury had advanced to the championship final by defeating West Carleton in semi-final action. It was 4-3 for Stittsville late in

this game when West Carleton pulled its goalie. Joshua Dickson of the Fury battled hard near the Stittsville blueline, gaining puck possession and then head manning the puck to teammate Kieran Balon who scored into the empty West Carleton net to seal a 53 victory and secure Stittsville’s spot in the championship final. The opponent in this final game would be Perth which had defeated Russell in semi-final action. In round robin play in this tourna-

ment, Stittsville finished first in its division with an undefeated record, albeit with one tie. Stittsville got off to a great start in the tournament, winning 10-1 against South Stormont on the Friday afternoon, Nov. 15. On Saturday morning, the Stittsville Fury played the host team from Russell, with the game ending in a 2-2 draw. If Stittsville wanted to finish in first place in its round robin division, it had to win its third game of round robin play. The Fury had a 3-2 lead

over Metcalfe Jets going into the third period of this third round robin game. The Fury really stepped on the gas in the third period, scoring three goals to win by a 6-2 score. This gave Stittsville a first place finish in its division in round robin play, beating out the Russell team which also had a record of two wins and a tie. The tie-breaker was determined by the team which had the least amount of penalty minutes in round robin play. This happened to be the Stittsville Fury.

programs as well as a multi-season tenure as assistant general manager of Schalke’s senior Bundesliga team. During his time in the Schalke youth academy, he helped the organization become a leader in Germany in youth development. Mr. Stoffelshaus is looking forward to help make the WOSC one of the foremost player development organizations in Canada. “Guiding young footballers on their journey towards becoming the very best they can be continues to be my main passion and considering WOSC’s ambitious vision, I feel I have come to the perfect place,” he said. “To be able to bring somebody of Erik’s football experience and pedigree into the organization marks a quantum leap for our Club,” WOSC CEO Bjorn Osieck said, citing Erik’s deep theoretical football knowledge with his extensive practical application experience. As technical director, Mr. Stoffelshaus will be working with a WOSC technical staff that includes Canadian soccer star Kristina Kiss and former Celtic Glasgow and Dundee United Ace David Hannah. The WOSC is the second largest soccer club in Canada, with an aggregate membership of close to 10,000 players. Founded in the year 2010, it is the result of a merger of a number of more local soccer clubs in the west end of Ottawa. The WOSC offers a full suite of soccer programs from very young children to adults. A variety of league and player development programs are offered to challenge all levels of ability and interest. Committed to long term player development, the WOSC is professionally managed with a full and part time staff. It is governed by a volunteer board of directors and utilizes a network of volunteers to deliver its programs.

Husky Howler: ‘Reindeer Hunt’ Here comes the Grinch! Special to the News

Eva von Jagow Special to the News

Ask any students or teacher here at Sacred Heart High School to name a favourite school activity and I guarantee “Reindeer Hunt” will be on most lists. Each student is given the name of another student and the goal is to track that student down during school hours and “tag” a clothes pin to that person without them seeing. Sounds easy enough? Students seem to think otherwise at this time of year as you will see students crawling under cafeteria tables, hiding in lockers and walking with their backs towards the wall, all in an effort to tag their victim or to remain untagged themselves. It may sound simple and yet it is the most competitive game played at Sacred Heart – and both students and

teachers love it! Last week was National Anti-Bullying Week and students at Sacred Heart participated in various activities such as Positive Text Tuesday where students were encouraged to use their phones for a portion of a class and send positive texts to one another. Students and staff also signed a banner entitled “Take A Stand” as a pledge to make a difference and prevent bullying in the school and in the community. The student production of the musical “CATS” is being presented on stage from Wednesday, Nov. 27 through to Saturday, Nov. 30. The Wednesday, Thursday and Friday performances are at 7 p.m. while the Saturday performance is a 1 p.m. matinee. Everyone in the community is invited to attend and enjoy this famous musical. Tickets will be available at the door.

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 Christmas-themed 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 www.biblioottawalibrary. ca 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. These include Babytime, Storytime, Toddlertime, the Stittsville Library Book Club, a French conversational speaking skills program and a Stittsville Creative Writing Group.



Against bullying Student handprints and indications of support are all over “Take A Stand” banner which was created at Sacred Heart Catholic High School last week as a pledge to make a difference and prevent bullying in the school and in the community. Last week was National Anti-Bullying Week.

Student art at Westwind Public School

News - It was one event which really lived up to its name. “Art Is Everywhere,” the third annual student art show at Westwind Public School in Stittsville which happened on Thursday, Nov. 21 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., featured art literally everywhere, both in the hallway leading to the school’s gymnasium and then in the gymnasium itself whose walls were laden with student art of various styles, done by students from junior kindergarten right through to grade six. So there was monochromatic art, fall leaves, sunflowers, line and watercolour art, Picasso-style portraits, lion silhouettes, perspective art, pointillism, abstract art, autumn scenes, sunflowers a la Vincent Van Gogh, Picassostyle flowers, mirror collages, recycled art by the Westwind Eco Team, Remembrance Day art and crazy quilt art. But there was more. Some grade five and six students displayed natural art that they had designed and created based on the works of Andy Goldsworthy, the British sculptor, photographer

and environmentalist who is known for his land art situated in natural and urban settings. The student art had to be accompanied by a free verse poem inspired by the piece of art created. There were also studentcreated O’Keeffe-style flowers on display, done in the style of American artist Georgia O’Keeffe who was known for her large format paintings of enlarged blossoms. O’Keeffe, who died in 1986, is known as the “Mother of American Modernism.” There were also on display examples of Kandinsky circles, named after Russian painter Vassily Vassilyevich Kandinsky who is known for his abstract works, especially the so-called Kandinsky circles which involve a descending series of circles, triangles and squares. Four local artists were also at this “Art Is Everywhere” event. There was Terry Sarchuk who has her studio in Stittsville and paints vibrant, colourful abstract art. She helped students who dropped by her table to add their own touches to an ongoing painting. Artist Joan Shouldice helped students paint their own bookmarks while artist Sarah Moffat from Almonte

helped visiting students create colourful decorative pieces. Richmond artist Salena Richard had examples of her portrait work on display and chatted to many throughout the evening about art. There were a couple of arts and crafts tables set up in the gymnasium to keep youngsters busy, creating art of their own. Rochelle James’ Elemenopaint, which offers

Pablo Picasso), and “Name the SMART artist who owns an art gallery in the Old Flour Mill in Almonte, Ontario and creates her own beautiful trees using metallic foils and textures?” (answer: Sarah Moffat). There was also a silent auction set up in the middle of the gymnasium, offering items such as porcelain dishes and pots as well as some artwork. Art could also be seen along the hallway leading to the gymnasium including an ex-

hibition of face artwork called “Beautiful Expressions,” some collaborative paintings, some foil leaf relief artwork and a tree with owls in it. This “Art Is Everywhere” event also featured a musical performance by the G Notes choir from Goulbourn Middle School under the direction of music teacher Fred Donkor. The group sang several songs including “Homework Blues,” “We Shall Overcome” and “Where Have All The Flowers Gone.”

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories Lifestyle - How often I had begged Mother to find the few pennies it would take to buy just one bar of store-bought soap? There was always a better place for her egg money, she’d say. And besides, there was nothing wrong with the bars of home-made soap she churned out once or twice a year. Along with my loathing for the home-made soap was my absolute dislike for the days Mother put aside to make it. That seemed to happen in spring and fall. It couldn’t be too hot, or too cold. Winter had yet to settle in that year I remember with such clarity. The summer kitchen was still being used to store things, but soon it would be too cold to be nothing more than a place to pile the wood, and once the snow came, it was through the summer kitchen we went to get rid of as much snow off our feet as possible before coming into the kitchen. Mother announced at breakfast that morning that Audrey and I were expected to hurry home from school because we would be putting supper on the table. “I’m making soap today,” she said. She had been saving lard from the fried bacon, roasted pork and anywhere else she could find a spoonful or two of fat. By the time soap day rolled around, about four small honey pails of fat sat on an old table in the summer kitchen at the ready. The tin of Gillette’s lye was already bought at Scott’s Hardware in Renfrew, and we children were warned every day not to even touch

the tin it came in, so deadly it was. “It’s poison and it will burn a finger to the bone,” Mother warned. Every time I walked through the summer kitchen, I looked at the yellow and black lettered tin of lye like it alone had started the First World War. The containers Mother used to make the soap were big square black tins, much like the cookie sheets that stood on edge in the bottom of the kitchen cupboard. But these were shallow and much larger, and as black as your boot. Even before we went to school, Mother would have started the soap making. The tins (usually there were at least three in use at a time) were spread out on the old wood table in the summer kitchen. The kettle would be boiling on the Findlay Oval, and Mother would take it to the summer kitchen and half-fill the black tins with hot water. I would always hope we would still be home when she added the lye. I both hated and was entranced with that step of the process. Mother would pry off the lid with a knife and pour the lye over the hot water. Great gusts of steam would come off the tins, not from the hot water, which would cool off almost immediately, but from the lye doing its dastardly deed in the water. There was an old wood spoon with a very long handle that was used for nothing else but stirring the lye into the water. It had a piece of binder twine through the little hole in the handle, and when not used for soap-making it hung in the summer kitchen so that it wouldn’t accidentally be

used for something that would be put in our stomachs. The fact that Mother wore a pair of Father’s old work gloves confirmed in my mind how dangerous the lye was. We were never around long enough to see the next step, but we knew the little honey pails, which would have been sitting on the back of the cook stove so the contents turned to liquid, were brought close to the table, and once the lye had been melted into the hot water, the lard would be stirred into the mixture. Into one tray Mother would drop in a few drops of vanilla. That tray would be used for our baths and face-washing. Audrey said the hardest part of soap making was trying to blend the fats into the water and lye. Sometimes it took hours. I would picture in my mind Mother with Father’s old work gloves on, stirring and stirring and making sure not a drop would touch her skin. By time we got home from school, the big black trays of lye, water and fat, would have gelled and hardened, or at least that was Mother’s hope. But sometimes, it seemed to take forever for the pans to set well enough to be cut into bars. While that was happening, Mother constantly jumped up from the supper table and went out to the summer kitchen to press a finger to the mould to see if it was ready to cut. I could never figure out how the deadly lye could lose its power just by adding water and lard. When it did (and I questioned the fact), it became the soap we would use in our baths on

Saturday night, for washing our hands, shaved into slivers for doing the Monday washings, and for anything else that needed to be cleaned with soap and water. By the time the evening was well on its way, Mother would bring the trays onto the kitchen table which had been covered with copies of the Renfrew Mercury, and using the sharpest knife in the house, she would cut the soap into bars. Sadly, no matter how hard Mother worked to melt the lye, there was always a few pieces left that didn’t succumb to the hot water, and it wasn’t unusual at all to have a piece of lye scrape across your body during a bath, leaving a scratch like one made by a mad tom cat. Audrey, Mother and me were the only ones to use the soap made with a dash of vanilla, but as far as I was concerned, the vanilla did little to take away the strong smell of Gillette’s lye. It would be a long time before Mother finally bought a bar of real soap. I thought it smelled just as bad as what she had made. It was called Lifebouy, it was bright red. Its smell lingered on your body for hours. One day Mother bought a bar of a new soap called Ivory, but it was for company, like Aunt Lizzie when she came from Regina, and when she left, it was wrapped in wax paper and stored away until her next visit. So all through those Depression years, homemade lye soap was part of our lives, and very much a part of a time in our lives when you made do, or you did without.

Photos of heritage John Curry

News - Youth photographers had their own section in this year’s Heritage Photo Contest sponsored by the Goulbourn Township Historical Society. This was the first time that there was a separate section in the competition for youth. This year’s competition featured five categories which applied in both the adult and youth sections. These categories were Heritage Homes, Goulbourn Swamps, Heritage Tombstones, Links to the Past and Richmond Fair – Tomorrow’s History. In the youth section’s Heritage Homes category, 15 year old Akhir Alibhai grabbed first place with this photo of the historic Stewart

home (former Dr. Ken Hartin home) on Perth Street in Richmond. The second place ribbon in this category went to 17 year old Allanah Alibhai with her photo of the Dr. Chanonhouse Queen Anne-style brick home on Perth Street in Richmond. In the Links to the Past category for youth, it was once again Akhir Alibhai taking home the red ribbon with his photograph of the Dining Hall at the Richmond fairgrounds in Richmond. Thirteen year old Abu Alibhai grabbed second place with his photograph of the old tractor on display at the front of Tony’s Chip Wagon on Perth Street in Richmond. In the Heritage Tombstones category for the youth, 11 year old Karolina Moo was the winner with her photograph of tombstones at the Stittsville United Church cemetery in Stittsville.

West Ottawa Ladies Chorus concert Dec. 1 Jessica Cunha

News – They’re ready to go. The members of the West Ottawa Ladies Chorus showed that they will be delivering a musical experience par excellence at their Christmas concert “A Garland of Carols” this Sunday, Dec. 1 when, with their voices raised in perfect harmony, they delivered a inspiring rendition of the iconic Christmas carol “Silent Night” at their final rehearsal before the concert. And this is only one of the showcase of well known carols, songs of the season and new tunes that the West Ottawa Ladies Chorus will be performing at the Dec. 1 concert. “This choir does an amazing, amazing performance of ‘In the Bleak Mid-Winter,’” says Bonnie MacDiarmid who accompanies the 30 member chorus on the piano. “The choir arrangement is beautiful,” she adds. “You won’t forget this concert.” The accompanist comments are reinforced by Irene Moore, who has been singing with the West Ottawa Ladies Chorus for the past year. “There’s a variety of music,” Ms. Moore says about the upcoming concert. “There are songs for people to sing along. It’ll put them in the Christmas spirit.” The West Ottawa Ladies Chorus has been practicing twice a week since September in preparation for the concert which takes place this Sunday, Dec. 1 at 3 p.m. at St. Paul’s Anglican Church on Young Road just north of Hazeldean Road in Kanata. West Ottawa Ladies Chorus music director Robert Dueck has high praise

involved expressed an interest in singing together again. So, under Mr. Dueck’s guidance and direction, the West Ottawa Ladies Chorus was founded in 2012. Beginning with 12 members, the group has now grown to 30 women coming from all over the west end of Ottawa and area including Stittsville, Richmond, Munster, Kanata, West Carleton, Arnprior, Carleton Place and Almonte. Liz Mevel of Stittsville has performed with the group since that initial 2011 concert with the Male Chorus. Having sung as a child and in a church choir, she has enjoyed the opportunity to continue performing which involvement with the West Ottawa Ladies Chorus offers. “I was delighted to be able to do this,” she says. “I love it. It’s so much fun. The selections Robert makes are wonderful.” Irene Moore, who sang in a choir as a young adult, notes that she learns something new at every rehearsal. “It’s the highlight of my week,” she says. “It’s rewarding, making music together.” Besides the Christmas concert and a spring concert, the West Ottawa Ladies Chorus also performs at “sing outs” where they perform at retirement residences or at other venues. “We’re given the gift of beautiful music and that’s our way to thank the community,” Ms. Mevel says. And music director Robert Dueck agrees, noting the joy that comes from sharing familiar music. “It’s hugely rewarding for us as singers,” he says. Accompanist Bonnie MacDiarmid as well as singers Mevel and Moore

And at this concert, the West Ottawa Ladies Chorus is being joined by a number of special musical guests including tenor soloist Rory McGlynn, Sandra Allan on cello, Christine Ritchie on trumpet, percussionist Ann Reilly, the Trinity Handbell Ensembles and the Trinity Hilltop Handbell Ringers.

Heritage photo contest Continued from page 61

In the Richmond Fair – Tomorrow’s History category for youth, Allanah Alibhai took first place with her pumpkin photograph. Second prize in this category went to Adam Alibhai for his photograph of large vegetables on display at the Fair. There were no winning entries selected in the Goulbourn Swamps category for youth as the entries did

not show wetland or swamp areas but rather watercourses. But this situation did not prevail in the adult section as there were winners in its Goulbourn Swamps category. Lorna Graham got the first place ribbon for her shot of a swamp that lies between Ashton and highway seven. Virginia Notley grabbed second prize with her photograph of the

swamp that is beside a pond south of Maple Grove Road in Stittsville. Lorna Graham also did well in both the Heritage Tombstones and Heritage Homes category of the competition for adults. She won the red ribbon in the Heritage Homes category for her shot of the Craig/Bradley farm home along Hazeldean Road just west of the Carp River. In addition, she also topped the Heritage Tombstones category for her photograph of tombstones at the Scharf family gravesite on Hazeldean Road in Kanata, formerly

part of Goulbourn. In the Links to the Past category for adults, Andre Bergevin was the winner with his photograph of a deserted log home along Mansfield Road in Goulbourn. Second place in this category went to Virginia Notley for her photograph of the identification sign on the Loyal Orange Lodge No. 69 on Mansfield Road in Goulbourn. There were no winners in the Richmond Fair – Tomorrow’s History category for adults. Other entrants in the youth section included nine year old Evan Moo,
