A step ahead of cancer

Survivor joins walk for first time DEREK DUNN derek.dunn@metroland.com CARP – Laurie Coady missed walking with her “training buddy” while she did the Weekend to End Women’s Cancer June 5 and 6. Her husband Bernie would awaken her those mornings they trained. Poured the coffee. While walking the 10 kilometres from Diamondview Road to Craig Side Road, past Trudeau’s Golf Ball, along Carp Road into the village, they would talk about their lives, the kids, life in general. “I really missed him,” Coady said. “He wanted to (do the charity fundraiser) with me. But I needed to kick cancer in the ass. I needed to say, ‘I’m going to beat you every time.’” Coady, among the 100 participants who raised $2.1 million by walking 60 kilometres, bringing the fundraiser’s total to $11 million over five years, sent the message to cancer loud and clear. “It was very brazen of me,” said the mom of two young women, who in 2008 battled breast cancer. “When I do something I go for broke.” However, Coady is the first to say she didn’t do it all on her own. One neighbour brought her a dozen roses every week during those dark days of treatment. At the end, she congratulated Coady with a rose bush. Another friend and neighbour, Ruth Bradley Riley, inspired her to participate in the event, even though Riley herself has the rare fortune to say she hasn’t been touched by cancer. Coady said Bernie is her heart and soul, her rock, and the “best darn motivator and training companion” she could ask for. But it was Riley who humbled her to the necessity to participate. The two of them took part in the event. Between them they raised $9,480. “People like her are utterly amazing,” Coady said, adding that cancer survivors often seem to be those who can see the good, and stay positive. “I’m a glass half full person. Good support is key.” See WALK, page 23

Most of the 144 golfers got into the Mardi Gras spirit by decorating their golf carts, wearing masks and beads as well as bright Mardi Gras coloured outfits. This popular golf tournament was sold out two weeks before the event.

Women ace charity golf tournament Babs Harcourt tournament tops last year’s record amount DEREK DUNN derek.dunn@metroland.com CORKERY – In a city well above par with the number of its charity golf tournaments, the Babs Harcourt Friendship Memorial Golf Tournament has quickly earned the reputation as one not to be missed. Rain or no rain. The inaugural tournament raised $3,000; the second year $7,000; and this year’s, held again at Greensmere Golf and Country

Club, on June 16, raised for The Lucille Broadbent Legacy Fund an impressive $11,000. “Everybody was very happy at the end and in good spirits,” said Dixie Trenholm, of the organizing committee. “If people can have that much fun when it rains, imagine next year.” The 144 registered lady golfers – many from West Carleton - were forced indoor after five holes of the shotgun tournament, many not getting a chance to play the club’s new

Soccer coach with kids told beach is private beach soccer last Saturday. “When we arrived a neighbour was already challenging several parents - before they got on the beach - saying that they were not allowed on there,” Jones said. “We ignored them and started playing.” He said three neighbours told him and another parent that “city” folk were not allowed on the beach. Stewart dismissed the city/ local comment and told them to look at the kids playing at 11 a.m. with only water to drink. “We finished playing an hour later without any incident, but constantly watching,” he said. “Not really relevant but all players and parents were from West Carleton. To me it was a very, very disturbing development.” Dooher said the Constance and Buckhams Bay Community

CONSTANCE BAY – The ‘no’ side in the privatization of the beach issue at Constance Bay is mobilizing. And not just on Facebook anymore. Rick Dooher, who created Friends against Privatizing Constance Bay Beaches, is organizing a July 11, 12 to 6 p.m. fundraiser at the Point Dining Lounge to pay for flyers and possibly a lawyer to challenge the city’s legal opinion that the beach is not open to the general public. He expects between 1,000 and 1,500 people to attend, many of them among the Facebook page’s 2,660-plus members. Many are students from area high schools and residents living in West Carleton, including non-shore front owners in Constance Bay. “The beach is not private. That’s just an opinion,” Dooher said. “We want these (private beach) signs removed because we find them offensive.” He added that a yet-to-be-

named group will form to fix up the beaches and make everyone “feel comfortable” again. A group of some 11 homeowners along Lane Street, along with supporters, have erected signs and begun an “education” campaign letting non-property owners know that police will enforce laws along the popular stretch. The homeowners have long complained about drunken partiers disrupting their privacy at all hours on the beach. However, the no side says the beaches have been treated as public for 80 years or more; real estate agents have promoted properties as having beach access; and that the yes side is trying to prevent everyone from using the beaches, not just partiers. Soccer coach Stuart Jones is convinced the homeowners are targeting everyone, including the group of eight 10-yearold players he invited to play Brazilian style

EDITORIAL

Women rock

Each issue of the West Carleton Review seems to take on a theme all on its own. One week it could be school plays, the next is about hockey tournaments, sometimes a political issue is explored from various angles. This week is a very special theme. Women first. Then women who have also survived cancer. Our two front page stories detail the remarkable achievements of women in West Carleton. They’ve surpassed all expectations and, as one interviewee stated with great enthusiasm and pride: kicked cancer in the ass. Laurie Coady and her friend Ruth Riley deserve a hats off for their challenge to complete the Weekend to End Women’s Cancer walk. It was not so long ago that to even whisper the word was shunned. Today, thanks to women like Coady and Riley, more and more people are inspired to fight the deadly disease – and to maintain a positive outlook while doing so. The next story has been a favourite of ours, something we look forward to covering each year. The women who golf and raise money and remember their friend – Babs Harcourt – are to be commended. It’s not an easy task, putting together a golf tournament. But these organizers do it with smiles on their face and nothing but goodwill in their hearts. And it doesn’t hurt to recognize the sacrifices of their male partners. They miss a day playing, which is rough for some. But they also turn out to help with co-ordinating the event. Coady’s husband, too, is called her rock. This from a woman who truly rocks.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

And what would you do, Mr. Aronec? To the editor: Thanks to this paper, candidate Alexander Aronec has freely used these pages to describe all that he sees wrong with the city but as of yet failed to reveal what he actually stands for (June 10 “El-Chantiry seeks third term on city council”). Now that the race is official, it’s time for Aronec to be held accountable. It should be pointed out to Aronec and his friends that there is no prize for being the first to register your intention for running. The simple rule is register before the deadline. People generally don’t like elections, and they particularly don’t like them or you if you are in their face five months before the election. Something you should consider Mr. Aronec. Drop the young and poor routine, as in David and Goliath. You knew that going in, and people are not going to vote for you because you are young or enthusiastic; it’s what you offer that is important. With that in mind don’t say you will work hard or devote all your time to the job. Being a councillor is a fulltime job. It’s how you will do things differently that is supposed to separate you from the incumbent. As a candidate you should be a little cautious about taking cheap shots without any evidence. In your last commentary you state,

For any distribution inquiries or for the delivery of a missed paper please call District Service Representative local 613-432-3655 ext. 31 1-800-884-9195 ext. 31

“If you want change, a city councillor who works for his or her constituents and the city instead of being out getting photographed or sound-bited.” The implication is that the incumbent Eli El-Chantiry hasn’t worked for the city or his Ward. Do you really want to question Eli El-Chantiry’s time and commitment to this Ward? If this is the route you wish to follow, then I would ask Eli El-Chantiry to submit a resume of his actions in this Ward for say the last 15 years, and for you to do the same. Sorry that won’t work for you will it. How about the last 10; still not working is it? The last five, the last four, the point, of course, is, don’t make an issue over something that you can’t possibly defend. You state in an interview on El-Chantiry’s registering his intention to run again, that “he will be able to be held accountable for his past actions.” You don’t need an election to be held accountable as you are held accountable each any every day. Councillors get phone calls every day on issues that concern voters. If they are not happy with the answers and solutions they phone back. That’s the way it works. You mention that he will be questioned on the Constance Bay issue, the coyote population issue and his handling of community groups like the Carleton Landowners. As mentioned, these are ongoing issues that don’t just arrive at election time.

Better still though, Mr. Aronec, candidate for West Carleton, what would you do with these issues? The Carleton Landowners Association is a group that was devoted to separating from the city, but now is re-structuring themselves because the issue is dead. In the last election they ran a candidate and lost. This time around they couldn’t or wouldn’t run a candidate against El-Chantiry. What has El-Chantiry done with this group that you would do differently? Further on that line, El-Chantiry is against their motives and supports the city. What do you support Mr.Aronec? Being young is not good enough, Mr. Aronec. Being enthusiastic and energetic is not good enough, Mr. Aronec. This is not high school where trying hard or doing your best gets rewarded. This is the real world where you are going to be held accountable for what you say and do. Therefore, I would expect candidate Aronec that in the future you would use the free space that the West Carleton Review gives you and all of us, to enlighten us on what you actually stand for and how you would make a difference. The time has come for you to stop hiding behind the negative comments and cheap shots and spell it out. Otherwise don’t embarrass yourself any further and do the honourable thing and withdraw your candidacy. Jeff Spooner Kinburn

NEWSPAPER ADVERTISING gets read. gets remembered. gets results With so many advertising mediums dividing the attention of potential customers, newspapers remain the most effective source for reaching consumers. Why? Simply put, newspapers reach more people, more often. Highly portable and highly visible, newspaper ads go with people and stay with them. That means your business is more likely to be on their minds when they’re in the market for related products or services. When it comes to spending your advertising dollars, make the choice that’s tried and true: newspaper advertising works harder for you.

New Bay residents could learn lessons from the past To the editor:

There was never a question about where you could or couldn’t swim. Waterfront property owners often invited their neighbours to take a short cut through their yards to the beach. By the early ‘70s, about half the families in the Bay were permanent residents. Now I would estimate it to be 98 or 99 per cent. I would be surprised if I still knew more than 30 or 40 people in the Bay. Times have changed since I became a permanent resident in 1970. I don’t know how this summer will evolve with the situation at the Point beach, but there is certainly a lot of ill-will on both sides of the issue. Is punishing the many because a few have not respected the rights of others the right way to go? Personally, I think not. If some of the incidents that have prompted this latest response of posting the beach had been dealt with firmly when they occurred, perhaps we would not be in this situation. Perhaps it is time to go back and have a more timely police response. Perhaps level heads will prevail and we can get back to the time when we respected our neighbours and their property.

Waterfront owners invited neighbours to take a short cut to the beach.

Oh, times have changed, My first two summers in Canada were spent at a cottage my parents rented on what is now called Baillie Avenue. It was 1946 and for all intents and purposes, Constance Bay was a summer cottage community with only a handful of cottages in Buckham’s Bay. Living was easy and kids played together on the beaches. In 1952 my parents purchased a lot near what is now called the Lighthouse and from that point on, I virtually lived at the Bay once school got out and knew and made friends with most of the kids. We called kids that only came up on the weekends “townies,” but it was all in fun. The community centre was called the Casino and there actually was a Whip-poor-will restaurant and dance hall. Max and Ruth Wickens made the best hamburgers and served the best chocolate milk in pint glass bottles. You were invited to write your name on the walls. Tom McConnell and his brother operated the grocery store and you could get the best fresh cut steaks for the barbecue. Frank Latimer operated the Point and you could rent a Skidoo there in the winter. Frank Miriguay operated what is now the Lighthouse and you could get a receipt for the gas you bought for your outboard. At that time the province would refund the road tax. Miss Bayview in Buckham’s Bay also sold gas and sundries. Domenic Dicember operated a garage and store on Bayview Drive where the snowmobiles cross the river in winter. And then there was the neatest character in the area. I only ever

knew him as “mon oncle.” He was an older man who lived in a one-room cabin behind the fire station. He was a licensed plumber and could fix anything and offered free advice, if he liked you. The Legion was formed and first operated out of the old Smith residence and post office at the corner of Dunrobin and Kinburn Side roads. Policing was carried out by the OPP and they actually spent the summer in a cottage on the west side of Bayview Drive between the church and Bishop Davis. We knew them all on a first-name basis and respected their authority. Dances were a regular event at the Casino on Saturday nights and it was also regular to have a police car in the gully as you entered the Bay. If you didn’t live or have a cottage in the Bay and beer or liquor was found in your car, it was confiscated. I’m not sure if the laws have changed or become less strictly enforced, but at that time you were only permitted to transport beer from the store to your residence. Later on, Brewers Retail would actually do door-to-door deliveries. Torbolton Township also had its own police force for a time. Remember Bill Griese? I suppose, because everyone knew everyone, things ran pretty smoothly and there was little vandalism and the parties were usually small. We respected our friends’ parents because we actually got punished if we were caught causing any major mischief.

Small population doesn’t justify bike lanes, carpooling I would like to take the opportunity to respond to Mr. Tom’s letter in last week’s West Carleton Review. On order to save newsprint, this is the abridged version of the reply, the full length version is available on my website. First, as a resident of Kanata North (Ward 4), I suspect Mr. Tom already utilizes - weather permitting - the bike lanes in that ward. Wards 4 and 5 are geo-socially different with ward 5 30 times bigger and with 80 per cent of the population of Kanata North. We have virtually no transit presence, save Para Transpo; you do have good OC Transpo presence. Common sense says with low population density and low demand that OC Transpo or extensive bike lanes in the ward would not be sound financially for the city to implement. Same issue with car pooling, you need density for it to be successful. Cars, like it or not, are a fact of life in the 21st century.

March Road expansion needs to be completed before 2023! On the subject of bikes, at the city level, one idea that I propose is for staff to investigate and determine the cost of the incorporation of a bike tunnel to be implemented along side the LRT tunnel. Bike tunnels have proved very popular and successful in Europe and with access locations at each LRT station would allow year round bike use in that corridor. A last point I feel I need to make. I will do my level best to justify or defend my positions. If I am categorically wrong, or made a mistake, by all means point it out to me with the correct facts. I certainly will take every opportunity to clarify my position on the issue or item. We may agree to disagree, and I am fine with that. Alexander Aronec Ward 5 candidate

Climbing new peaks Mount Kilimanjaro grannies recount adventure JENNIFER MCINTOSH jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com DUNROBIN - It is the story of six women who were motivated to accomplish an extraordinary feat. Kilimanjaro: A Purposeful Journey, is the story of a group of west-end grandmothers who decided to fight back against the AIDS epidemic in Africa. The journey started with 58-year-old Dunrobin resident Gisèle Lalonde Mansfield, who wanted to do something to fight AIDS because of her brother Michele, who died from the disease. “My goal was to climb the mountain and raise $1 a foot,” she said. “And since I was able to reach my goal so quickly it got a lot of media attention. So other women started contacting me,” she said. If Lalonde Mansfield had stayed alone, like her original plan, she would have raised $19,341 — but with the help of the other “grannies,” she was able to send a cheque for $78,000 to the Stephen Lewis Foundation. The Foundation is one of the charities for the aged that started a grandmothers-to-grandmothers campaign to raise money for older women caring for AIDS orphans. “At first I wasn’t sure if I wanted to take on the responsibility for a group of women,” Lalonde Mansfield said. “But then I realized that it was meant to be that way.” The book, written two years after the

group made the seven-day climb up the legendary mountain, tells the individual story of each of the six women. “We realized that we all had different stories to tell,” Barbara Carriere said. The group trained for months prior to the climb, hiking when they could and climbing any stairs they could find. Lalonde Mansfield climbed the steps at parliament three times a week and Carriere said she climbed a hill near her Kanata home. “You could never really prepare yourself for it though,” Trudy Stephen said. All the women suffered from fatigue, altitude sickness and cold, but Stephen had some more severe concerns with a head cold, that was bordering on dangerous. “At one point I was worried I would get a fever or the cold would go into my lungs and the porters would force me to go down the mountain,” she said. In the end, Stephen and the rest of the girls made the trip in seven days — instead of the eight they had planned. Liza Badham joined the cause because she read about Lalonde Mansfield’s cause in the papers. She ended up being carried down the mountain by porters because of a twisted knee, but wouldn’t have changed anything for the chance to participate in the climb. The book can be purchased at a number of bookstores or online at: http://kiligrannies.com.

pete in Johannesburg on July 1. “Since Canada didn’t make the World Cup, we can show Canada’s ever-improving passion for soccer,” said Krocko. “It’s getting bigger and bigger, especially in (Ottawa).” Krocko, who graduated from Notre Dame Catholic High School in Carleton Place, began his journey with Carleton Place Soccer around the age of 10. He joined the league to stay active during the summer during the off-season from hockey. He eventually chose soccer as his primary sport, dropped hockey and joined the Capital United club at the age of 15. “This is really exciting,” said Krocko’s mother Eva of the trip. “But he seems so calm, cool and collected.”

Kyle Washington grew up in Carp and runs a westend business, Washington Total Soccer, which is selfdescribed as a skill development company dedicated to teaching young soccer players to enjoy the game. “I am so on top of the world,” said player Kyle. “It’s so unbelievable, it’s barely setting in.” Kyle said he knows they are going and he has his itinerary ready togo, but he’s still having trouble imagining what it will be like at the World Cup, playing at one of the FIFA stadiums. “Nothing in my experience can get me ready for what it will be like when we get there,” he said. “It’s unreal.” Kyle has been part of the Capital United since he was 16.

He said the group going to Johannesburg is closeknit, which makes the experience even more exciting. “This is going to be the trip of a lifetime,” he said. The Capital United Men’s Soccer Club is the top amateur league in Ottawa. The home field as located in the east end of the city. They play one to two games per week, and train up to five times per week. Many members of the team have been playing together for more than 10 years. The team has enjoyed an undefeated season so far. “We always finish in the top seeds,” said Krocko. The 6v6 Budweiser Cup is an international amateur event which features soccer teams from around the world at the same time as the World Cup.

Ottawa’s passion for soccer is going international, thanks to a local club. The eight-member men’s soccer team of the Capital United Men’s Soccer Club are headed to South Africa at the end of June after winning their way to the top. The team kicked off their winning streak by coming out on top at the regional level. They qualified for the nationals in Toronto, where they competed against five teams for the chance to head to South Africa for the Budweiser Global Beer Champions. After beating Montreal in the semifinals 2-1, the men went head-to-head against Toronto. They tied 0-0, but Ottawa won in the penalty shots. “It was a tough game,” said goalkeeper Mark Krocko of Ashton. Krocko, along with team mates Kyle Washington and Wade Washington, both originally from Carp, Ahmad Berjawi, Abdullahi Abunefeesa, Shawn Ord, Pat Zanetti and Joel Musambi, is headed to Johannesburg, South Africa at the end of June to compete against other countries at one of the FIFA stadiums. Krocko, who is a goalkeeping coach in West Carleton, was recognized as Keeper of the Game at the national level and was awarded an official soccer ball during the dinner gala to commemorate the award. He said about 16 countries are expected to com-

CARP - Waste Management will submit its Terms of Reference, giving Carp dump expansion opponents until July 19 to submit comments to the provincial Ministry of Environment. “The views and opinion from our neighbours and the surrounding communities has been invaluable and an important part of the development of the proposed project,� Waste Management’s Ross Wallace said in a press release. However, public opposition – especially from Stittsville residents – has been strong.

At a June 8 meeting over the proposed expansion, which will see a second landfill created next to the Carp Road existing landfill, numerous residents and local politicians voiced concerns over everything from possible air pollution to ground water contamination. “I’m just very frustrated with their attitude,� said Marlene Labelle, Stittsville’s representative on the project advisory board. On Tuesday, Carleton-Mississippi Mills MPP Norm Sterling, Mayor Larry O’Brien and Ward 6 Coun. Shad Qadri met at the Ultramar on Carp Road to call for an end to any plans to expand or extend the life of the Carp dump.

Grants Shaded area is eligible!

Rockin’ new owner for the Junior B Packers SHERRY HAAIMA shaaima@msn.com DUNROBIN - From the get-go, a change in ownership of the Arnprior Junior B Packers means at least a few new perks for the players. Enzo Mastromattei of Dunrobin recently purchased the executive-owned team, and the businessman says he wants to make some improvements right away, including having the players travel on coaches instead of the usual school buses. Enzo, owner of Rockin’ Johnny’s in Kanata and Unique Import Auto in Carleton Place, will also offer players halfprice meals at the restaurant. Enzo had been looking to buy a team for three or four years when he heard the Packers might be available. After a few months of meetings and negotiations, it was a done deal. Stipulations included that he keep the team in town, which was always his intention, he said. “I bought it for sport and to have fun and to look after the kids,” said Enzo. “I want to give back to the community.” Enzo has always loved hockey and his family has some history in Arnprior with son Christian, a goalie, playing here three years ago when he was 16. Christian’s Junior B rights were

owned by Arnprior and were traded to Westport last year. Christian will return to Queens University and the Westport team this fall. Enzo is pleased that Bill Griese will be staying on as general manager and head coach and Glenn Arthur and Joe Zarb will be on hand to share coaching duties, as well. For now, Enzo is looking forward to August training camp and the upcoming season. He’ll be looking to increase community involvement, as well. He is impressed already with the calibre of the Packers’ volunteers and hopes more people will come forward and get involved. Griese is excited that Enzo’s on board. “I think it’s great. He’s very energetic, he’s very positive,” said Griese. The timing couldn’t be better, either, with a dwindling group of organizers that has worked tirelessly for the past five or six years. “It comes at a time when the current executive is a very tired group,” said Griese. “Hopefully with this new ownership we can get some of the alumni and other people out to volunteer,” he said. He reminded potential volunteers that not only are executive positions available, but home and away game day volunteers are always required.

Deer accidents a cause of concern in West Carleton CONST. PETER JEON Ottawa Police Service

Patrol Officers in the West Carleton area responded to 35 general calls for service from the public for the reporting period of June 11 to 17. Deer accidents are racking up in rural Ottawa and drivers are advised to take extra care when driving at dusk and dawn. To help you steer clear of deer or other wildlife, here are a few driving tips: on rural roads slow down and set your headlights to high beam; take extra care on roads that cross creeks, rivers, wooded areas, or run alongside of open fields; avoid driving at dusk and dawn when possible. If you see an animal on the road: honk your horn in a series of short bursts; use four-way flashers to warn other drivers; at night blink your headlights; and if a deer is in your way, brake hard but never swerve. HAY, THIS IS DANGEROUS A forward thinking complainant called 911 after he hap-

pened upon several bails of hay strewn across Mcarton Road, near Aston Station, and realized its potential danger to the public because of the limited sightlines. Due to the size and quantity of the bails, city workers were called to help make hay while the sun was still shining.

WHO’S SLEEPING HERE? Shortly after 2 a.m. on June 12, a complainant called 911 to report a stranger sleeping in his house. The complainant told the operator that he didn’t have a clue on how the guy got into his house and that he sounded drunk, even though the male kept saying that he wasn’t. Before police arrived on scene at the Corkery Woods home, the complainant told the operator to call the officers off—he just found out that the guy was actually one of his friends. Accidents

Includes: • Modern indoor/outdoor runs • Air conditioned and heated • Large 2 acre fenced play area • Music • Inspection welcomed

Do you feel confused? Don’t know what to do? Learn how to embrace the natural principles to love and embrace your life – fully – We will provide guidance and healing so you will create the life YOU want.

so much ground. They’re not like the bicycles we see today, that you can ride for 100 kilometres and switch gears on. “Now this one…,” Moore said, pointing at a 1930s bicycle with wooden rims. “This one I wouldn’t take up the Pakenham hill.” The Bicycle World show was just one of the events in Mississippi Mills Bicycle Month. There will be a pickup game of bike polo tonight (June 17) beginning at 7 p.m. on the basketball court next to the Almonte Tennis Club at Gemmill Park. On Saturday everyone is invited to join the Tour de Mississippi Mills, a recreational ride through the hamlets of Mississippi Mills, guided by members of the Almonte Bicycle Club. Registration begins at 9:30 a.m. at Thoburn Mill, 83 Little Bridge St. in Almonte. For more information and a complete list of events visit www.mmbicyclemonth. ca.

Barrie learned of the sport through friends and was immediately intrigued. Although he was intimidated at first, he now plays three to four nights a week in Ottawa. Photo by Alison Bell

PAKENHAM - Cycling enthusiasts from across Mississippi Mills and beyond rolled into Pakenham Saturday for a show focused not only on the sport, but also the bicycle as part of a healthy lifestyle. “It’s not all about racing. It’s about an alternative form of transportation,” explained Jeff Mills, one of the event’s organizers. “It’s about getting out there and discovering neighbourhoods, preserving the environment, and it’s about physical and mental health.” The inaugural show — named Bicycle World — came to be after Pat Browne, an avid cyclist, shared a copy of a cycling magazine with Mills and some other riders. Mills read the magazine and realized there’s more to bicycling than racing. From there, the group decided to organize the show. “There were shows in Toronto and Montreal, but nothing in between. We figured why can’t we have one here. Just because we’re a small town doesn’t mean we can’t do it. We’re starting off small,” said Mills. C yc l i n g enthusiasts were invited

to bring their bicycles to the show for a free tune-up, learn about trails throughout the region, cycling and the environment, and more. There was even a display of bicycles from the past century. “I’m a collector. I collect anything I can get my hands on,” explained Jimmie Moore, owner of several of the bicycles on display. He may have a large collection of items in storage, but Moore also rides many of the bicycles. “I purchased this unicycle in Texas. I think it was used in a circus. I try to ride it, but it’s harder (to ride) than it looks,” he said. Moore can be seen riding around Arnprior on a CCM single-speed men’s cruiser from the late-1930s. The bicycle was made in Weston, Ont. and boasts one of the earliest uses of cotterless cranks. “This one is a comfortable ride. (Old fashioned bicycles) are very interesting to me. They’ve covered

Michael Runtz Nature’s Way completely strip trees. Some woodpeckers employ unusual feeding methods that do not involve digging into wood. Flickers probe their long tongues into anthills. Red-headed Woodpeckers capture insects on the wing, behaving very much like flycatchers. And then there are Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers. These birds prefer to dine on sap. To get at tree sap, they drill not one but a series of shallow sap wells all neatly lined up in rows. Recently I watched a Sapsucker digging wells in a large Basswood. Wells are usually found in birches,

hemlocks, and alders, so I was surprised by the choice of tree. With the precision of a master finish carpenter, the woodpecker pecked out perfectly rectangular holes. The bird would peck on one side of a well site, then after a few strokes change its angle to work on the other side. After a few pecks to the bottom and to the top of the well, out popped a chunk of bark. A couple of precision blows refined the well. I suspected that if I measured the 40 or so wells, I would find little more than a couple of millimetres variance. They all looked identical. Rectangular wells are dug in birches and alders. However, wells dug in hemlocks tend to be round. Perhaps the rougher, platy bark of hemlock is not conducive to more geometric well digging. I left knowing the sapsucker would return repeatedly to its wells during the following days.

The sap would be extracted by the bird’s long tongue. Brushlike projections on the tip would soak up the sap, which would then squeezed out when the tongue was withdrawn into the bill. Sapsuckers inadvertently provide food for other animals. Many insects including butterflies and moths drink the sap. Some become food for the sapsucker, perhaps like crackers in soup! I suspect Flying Squirrels enjoy the sap at night. Hummingbirds certainly take advantage of the bounty, much to the woodpecker’s chagrin. Once I watched a sapsucker try to chase away a freeloader, which merely zipped around the tree and drank behind the sapsucker’s back until it was detected and chased away again! I think of these aggressive interactions as the “Hole-y Wars!” The Nature Number is 613-387-2503; email is mruntz@start.ca

Nature is remarkable in how She is ekes out a living in every conceivable way. Some animals eat live plants. Some plants eat live animals. Some animals eat dead plants. Some plants eat dead plants. And within each category specializations galore can be found. Woodpeckers, for example, are specialized for eating insects hidden in wood. Their beaks are chisels and their necks, jackhammers. Their skulls have shock absorbers and their toes possess crampons. Tail feathers are braces and tongues, extensible hands. Woodpeckers are specialized birds indeed. While all woodpeckers share these features, they do not share the same methods for dining. Pileated Woodpeckers excavate giant cavities into the heart of carpenter ant colonies. Downy Woodpeckers flake off small pieces of bark while Blackbacked Woodpeckers

With so many advertising mediums dividing the attention of potential customers, newspapers remain the most effective source for reaching consumers. Why? Simply put, newspapers reach more people, more often. Highly portable and highly visible, newspaper ads go with people and stay with them. That means your business is more likely to be on their minds when they’re in the market for related products or services. When it comes to spending your advertising dollars, make the choice that’s tried and true: newspaper advertising works harder for you.

DUNROBIN SHORES - While Canada Days as of late have become synonymous with large crowds and fireworks, there is still a place where people can go to honour and celebrate our great nation in a much more relaxing and traditional way. Pinhey’s Point Historic Site will be hosting their annual Dominion Day celebration on July 1 on the museum’s beautiful 88-acres of forests, gardens and green space located along the Ottawa River. Built in 1820, Hamnett Pinhey’s grand ‘Horaceville’ estate embodies Canadian history and tradition through and though, from its rafters to its original floorboards. As Pinhey expanded his home over the years throughout the 19th century, Horaceville eventually came to embody the hardships, successes and customs that most Canadians experienced when first settling here. If the walls could talk, they would tell stories about the early lumber and fur trades and the

along the Ottawa River, when it acted as the original Highway 417. But, since they can’t, Pinhey’s Point’s trained interpreters will guide you on a trip through the house and property to get a glimpse of history of our region as the Pinhey family would have lived it. Visitors are invited to bring a picnic and spend the day on the lawn, celebrating the way that people might have on July 1st, 1867. Paddlers can also access the site by canoe or kayak if they want to have an authentic experience in terms of how visitors would have stopped by the estate in its early days.

It’s a fun event and she was a great little lady.” Event chairwoman Margaret Gillgrass was “absolutely delighted” with the results this year, and pleased to have Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation president Linda Egan at the ceremonies. “It will assist those who need some financial help with ongoing expenses while they are going through treatment,” Gillgrass explained. Carp’s Trenholm, who seems to have a golden touch with fundraisers – she helped with the Diefenbunker and the West Carleton Township Library, among others – was especially pleased with Greensmere’s generous offer. Every golfer that day was offered nine holes of golf free, plus a cart.

The long wait for care Ontario’s long-term care system is paralyzed, and failing its most vulnerable residents. More than 600 government funded homes are supposed to provide high quality, round-the-clock care to the frail elderly. But Metroland’s special report shows seniors stuck on record wait lists, entangled in bureaucracy and subject to pressure tactics that jeopardize their rights. FIRST IN A FOUR PART SERIES

What the terms mean ALTERNATE LEVEL OF CARE (ALC): The designation for patients occupying hospital beds who no longer need acute care. About 60 per cent of Ontario ALC patients are waiting for a nursing-home bed.

LONG-TERM CARE HOMES: Also called nursing homes, they offer more care and support than retirement homes or supportive housing. Licensed and funded by the province. Residents are responsible for monthly copayments.

By Mike Adler, Jillian Follert and Rob O’Flanagan

very day Mimi Michel scans the newspaper classified section looking for death notices of people with Alzheimer’s at Ottawa’s long term care homes. “I’ve become an obit vulture,” said the Ottawa woman. “I check and see if someone has died from a preferred place and if the donation was to the Alzheimer’s Society.” Every death means her husband, Alain, moves up another rung on a list of people waiting for a bed at an Ottawa-area nursing home. And it’s a long list, said Mimi. Her 68-year-old husband has been waiting for a bed for over a year now, ever since he was assessed by a case manager from the Champlain Community Care Access Centre, which is responsible for placing people needing long-term care in eastern Ontario. “They always say at least two years (wait),” said Mimi. Alain is number 38. But he hasn’t moved up the list since April, said Mimi. He is one of 25,000 in Ontario waiting to break through near zero vacancy rates at nursing homes, with some facing a wait of more than 200 days. Until a long-term care bed becomes available, Alain will stay at a local retirement home, at a cost of $4,900 per month. Meanwhile, Mimi must provide the required personal care: taking him for walks, helping him with physiotherapy, helping him to brush his teeth and shower. It’s 24-hour care and it’s exhausting, said Mimi, who retired early to care for her husband. Every day she arrives at her husband’s retirement home at around 7:30 a.m. and stays until 5 p.m. or later. “I’m here all day everyday,” said Mimi. Help is expensive. A personal care worker, someone to just sit with Alain, charges more than $25.95 per hour; a registered nurse charges at least $52 an hour, said Mimi. The community care access centre provides eight hours a week of personal care for her husband. “If you don’t have any money you’re screwed,” she said. “Right now I’m digging through my savings and investments and I’m looking at possibly selling my house.” The year-long wait has been exhausting financially, physically and emotionally, said Mimi, adding that she is frustrated with the endless red tape involved in finding a placement. “It’s not only the bureaucracy on the placement side but the bureaucracy on the health side as well,” she said. A growing number of vulnerable Ontar-

MAKING SENSE OF IT ALL

LONG STAY NURSING HOME BEDS: Occupied by residents for an indefinite period.

SHORT STAY NURSING HOME BEDS: Occupied for no longer than 90 days a year.

INTERIM BEDS: Temporary beds for patients awaiting long-term care, one of the solutions being tried by the government to get ALC patients out of hospitals. Stays of up to 120 days are allowed, with extensions of up to 60 days.

RETIREMENT HOME:

This feature is an excerpt of the full text. To read the entire report, go to www.yourottawaregion.com ians are trying with little success to find what they need in a long-term care system that is overwhelmed, unwieldy and tangled in red tape. Health Minister Deb Matthews agrees there are problems, but says it will take time to turn the system around. The province’s $3-billion-a-year network of government-licensed, publicly supported nursing homes is meant to provide highquality care to Ontario’s most fragile and medically needy residents. Situation Critical — a Metroland Special Report — shows a system in paralysis, with only one nursing-home bed in 100 available across Ontario, and with an average wait as high as 200 days in some areas. A $1.1-billion government program, created three years ago to make home support more widely and easily available, was supposed to ease the problem. Instead, wait lists have expanded, leaving more seniors in need of long-term care at home, and thousands more taking up hospital beds with nowhere to go. From 2007 to 2009, the average wait time for a nursing-home bed in Ontario more than doubled, from 49 to 109 days.

The provincewide tally of people waiting is now more than 25,000 and rising, doubled from 12,000 in 2005. The supply of new beds is static, with annual growth of less than 1 per cent. Only 900 more beds are expected to be available in nursing homes over the next 24 months. The average wait for a long term care bed in the Champlain region is 161 days. Only 35 per cent get their first choice of home. For hard-to-place seniors with a need for a higher level of care, waits can be two or more times the average. In rural areas and Northern Ontario, families may be separated by hundreds of kilometres, if there are beds at all. On average, less than 40 per cent of applicants get their first-choice home. Matthews, the health minister, says she is aware “we do have work to do in the access to long-term care homes.” “We know that people are waiting a long time to get into a long-term care home. But, we also know that with the right investments, we can actually keep people at home longer.” Matthews says the ultimate solution is to rely more on care at home, and to make more use of shorter-term “restorative” beds. By February, Ontario had 813 of the interim beds Matthews referred to, in nursing homes, hospitals or hospital-managed sites, and more are planned, the ministry says. In such placements, the elderly are “building their strength up, they’re getting healthier, and are actually, many of them, going home, those who would have otherwise thought they were going into longterm care,” Matthews said. See ‘Bureaucracy’ next page

Private-pay rental accommodation for those who need minimal to moderate support. Ontario passed legislation this month to regulate this sector for the first time.

LOCAL HEALTH INTEGRATION NETWORKS: The 14 LHINs are regional, nonprofit bodies funded by government to plan, disperse funding and co-ordinate services delivered by hospitals, long-term care homes and other agencies.

COMMUNITY CARE ACCESS CENTRES: The 14 government-funded CCACs are the agencies Ontarians must use to obtain home care, long-term care and other publicly delivered services.

CHRONIC CARE: Also called complex continuing care, it is medically complex and specialized care over extended periods not available at home or in nursing homes.

LONG TERM CARE HOMES ACT: A new law to replace Ontario’s three previous sets of legislation: Nursing Home Act, Homes for the Aged and Rest Homes Act, and Charitable Institutions Act. Among many measures, the new law strengthens enforcement and clarifies how a resident’s care is to be delivered, monitored and reported. The government is giving $30 million in one-time funding to the long-term care sector to help it adjust to changes under the new act.

SOME BEDS TO BE MODERNIZED: Ontario said this spring it will renovate 4,183 existing beds in 37 long-term care homes, part of a plan to redevelop 35,000 older beds over a 10-year period.


Continued from previous page The Metroland investigation also found bureaucracy is such an obstacle that consultants to industry and the U.S. military are being retained to help improve the process of moving people into nursing homes. Some efficiency methods being tried in Ontario are adapted from the assembly lines of the Toyota car company. One study counted 160 distinct steps, including access to nine separate databases, just to move a senior from hospital into a long-term care bed. Done by Orillia consultant Jeff Doleweerd from observations at Quinte Health Care’s Trenton Memorial, that 2008 study - sponsored by the Toronto-based Change Foundation — identified wasteful steps that occur in hospital before patients leave for a nursing home.

the free flow of the elderly into nursing homes. Susan Bisaillon, executive director of clinical operations of Trillium Health Centre in Mississauga, says the Lean exercise with Bercaw helped identify waste. In 2009, Trillium had as many as 131 seniors earmarked for nursing-home care in its wards, and a “consistently gridlocked” emergency room, recalls Bisaillon. Bercaw had staff place coloured sticky notes on a wall to recreate every step in a patient’s journey to either a long-term care bed or home. There were 82, and only 16 added real value for the patient. It was an “ah-ha moment” proving Trillium’s processes needed a major overhaul. “We realized that it was just totally flawed,” Bisaillon says.

generation will hit 75. By 2036, the number of Ontarians 75 and over will rise to 2.2 million, from 850,000 today. New regulations come into force next month in a modernized piece of longterm-care legislation in the works since 2003. Ministry officials hope the regulations will spur significant change.

Once in a home — despite the system’s ailments — most residents rate the care as satisfactory, according to a 2009 survey by the Ontario Health Quality Council. Getting through the door remains the major challenge. With files from Blair Edwards

THE ‘LEAN’ TECHNIQUE STRETCHED TO THE LIMIT Efficiency consultant Ron Bercaw has adapted a Toyota assembly line technique to help streamline the process of getting Ontario’s elderly out of hospitals and into nursing-home beds. Bercaw first adapted the “Lean” technique to save a failing auto-parts plant he managed in Ohio, and then taught it to 30 Ontario hospitals and CCACs in the last 21/2 years. His tools include streamlining procedures he executed for the defence industry and at the Pentagon. Bercaw’s “kaizen” (“change for the better”) events help health administrators see unnecessary steps that prevent

Metroland also found that those fortunate enough to secure a placement are cared for predominantly by overwhelmed personal support workers for whom a lack of provincial regulation means inconsistent training, lack of accountability and a backbreaking work pace that often removes the opportunity for meaningful personal contact. Nursing home staff in general are stretched to the limit, the result of years of understaffing and a steady influx of older and sicker residents. That trend will continue. In a decade, the first of the baby boom

Senior endures months at Mission before finding his space Wait times for city’s subsidized housing tops seven years or longer JENNIFER MCINTOSH jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

When he was young Terry Williams never expected to face living his twilight years on the streets of Ottawa. However that’s just what the 66-yearold Newfoundlander was facing last October after a divorce and some financial difficulties left him with few options. An easy-going guy, Williams said he occasionally likes a beer and a smoke and looks forward to having his own space after eight months at the Ottawa Mission — a non-profit, faith-based client service centre, for the city’s poor and destitute men. “They were really good to me here,” he said. “They really help you if you want to help yourself.” With his hair combed and a clean black t-shirt framing a wooden cross he constantly works his hands over, Williams doesn’t look like your average homeless

man. But Williams — like so many in his situation — lost touch with the community, and with it, a lot of his support systems. “I never had no kids,” he said. Algonquin grad, Wendy McCarl says that while seniors only represent about five per cent of the Mission’s total clientele, it can be hard to connect them with the right services. “A lot of them don’t even have the basic things like identification,” she said. “And it can be hard to convince them that there is another way to live.” One of McCarl’s biggest challenges is finding housing, both for seniors and young men alike. There are thousands of people on the city’s subsidized housing list, with a wait time of seven years or more. Added to that the complexity of placing seniors who may need special at home care of closer proximity to health care services, the odds often seem insur-

mountable. Seniors make up eight per cent of the people using emergency shelter in the city during an average annual year according to an Ottawa Council on Aging report in 2008. As rental costs climb and housing becomes costlier, those numbers are apt to climb. The same report, using 2001 census data, suggests that 41 per cent of seniors who were renting were in inadequate housing to meet their needs, or were spending more than 30 per cent of their annual income on rent. Senior renters were spending an average of 45 per cent of their annual income on rent. “It can be tough to keep up as you get older because you can’t work as much to make more money,” Williams said. Williams added after moving into his own place and getting settled he plans to continue visiting the Mission for meals and to stay in touch with friends. And he may
