Beach battle Police decide against responding to beach trespassing calls JESSICA CUNHA jessica.cunha@metroland.com

HERBFEST FUN The weather was perfect for the 15th annual Midsummer HerbFest at the Herb Garden, July 25. And the parking lot was packed as folks gathered to sample the wares of local artisans and businesses. 11

Residents along Lane Street received a letter from Ottawa Chief of Police Vern White July 9. The letter explained police would no longer be responding to trespassing calls because there are no identifiable markers setting out the boundaries of beachfront owners’ properties. “The letter just talks mostly about us not continuing to take calls for service under the trespass act,” said White. “From our

perspective it’s not clear enough for us to act on it.” Police will continue to take calls for illegal activities that occur on the beach. “If there’s criminal activity, then call us,” said White. “We’ll come to those calls but don’t call us when somebody’s walking on the beach saying you want them removed.” Waterfront property owners have said they own to the shoreline – or water’s edge – and no longer want people using the beach on Plan 412.

ATVer killed in crash with lawnmower

ADVENTURE CAMP Blast from the Past museum day camp is shaping up to be a week of exciting adventures at Pinhey’s Point. Campers will explore a variety of themes from pioneer life and the natural world at the 1820s heritage site. 15

A freak late-night collision between an all-terrain-vehicle and a riding lawnmower has killed a Kinburn man. Jeff Draper, 28, died Monday as a result of the early Sunday morning crash in West Carleton, Ottawa Police report the ATV rear-ended the lawnmower about 3:45 a.m. near the corner of Kinburn Side Road and Mohrs Road. Draper, who was not wearing a helmet, was thrown from the vehicle. He suffered serious head injuries and was rushed to the Ottawa Hospital’s Civic campus. In the original report on the crash, police said speed and alcohol factored in the collision.

After an investigation by the Ottawa Police’s Collision Investigation Unit, a 26-year-old Pakenham man, allegedly the driver of the lawnmower, was charged with impaired driving and driving with a blood-alcohol level exceeding 80 mg. Draper worked as an environmental engineer at SNC-Lavalin and was a well-known outdoorsman. His organs were donated and could save up to five others. His funeral will be held at the Emmanual Anglican Church in Arnprior this Friday at 11 a.m. He is survived by his parents Eric and Marion Draper of Sand Point, brother David, and fiancee Haleigh McClenaghan.

‘HAS TO BE SETTLED’ El-Chantiry said he agrees the only way to settle the dispute once and for all is for one of the sides to go to court and get a final ruling. The deeds say the waterfront residents own to the shoreline; but it doesn’t specify if it’s the shoreline from when the deeds were granted or the shoreline today, said El-Chantiry. “It has to be settled,” he said.

“It won’t get settled until it goes to court. I need to know to where they own.” The infighting in his ward is tearing the community apart, he said. “It’s really breaking my heart,” said El-Chantiry. “It’s like someone took a knife and split the community in two.” The city won’t fight the property issue, he said. “I don’t think the taxpayer should pay for the city to go to court,” said El-Chantiry. “So I’m hoping ... someone wants to take it to a higher court to have a ruling on it.” “The city of Ottawa doesn’t take a position on (the issue),” said city lawyer Tim Marc. It’s not a municipal interest.” The city did provide legal information to both sides, he said. “We have provided the opinion that the way to find an answer to this question is for someone to make an application to the Ontario Supreme Court,” said Marc. “You want a conclusive answer to this, then someone needs to make an application.” The police chief said the battle isn’t fair to either side. “It needs to be clear,” said White. “At least then you have an exact point. But from this location to the shoreline doesn’t help us. “The landowners would argue it has been decided. We’ve been responding in the hopes we can make this easier and to come to some kind of resolution but

Continued from Page 1 “Their property line, they argue, grows and diminishes depending on the time of the year,” said White. “It’s not so clear where your land is since the property line moves. “We’re saying go to court, get a judge’s decision and then we’ll have a discussion on responding to calls. I just think this one has a solution and right now it doesn’t need to include the police.” Resident John Nightingale said residents are “currently reviewing all options available to us.” West Carleton Coun. Eli ElChantiry, chairman of the police board, said he has no say in how the police choose to do their job. “The police chair and board do not control the police,” he said. “The board is there as an oversight. We don’t interfere with the operations of the police.”

WEST CARLETON REVIEW - July 29 2010

Court ruling needed to settle dispute

404003

WALLS TO COME TUMBLING DOWN As reported by the West Carleton Review in June, the former Agri West Co-op buildings in Carp are being demolished this summer. The City of Ottawa has ordered the demolition of the buildings that it acquired for non-payment of taxes because of safety concerns. The complex at 135 Rivington St. near the Carp River has also been the target of vandals and graffiti artists since it closed in 2003. The final straw was a fire, which although extinguished quickly, could have caused major problems in the residential neighbourhood. Demolition began last week and is expected to be complete by the end of the first week of August. It is expected it will cost about $100,000 to level the buildings. Once that is done, city officials will consult with the community about possible uses for the property. Photo by John Carter

The battle of words is continuing in the Constance Bay beach debate between Woodlawn resident Richard White and Dunrobin resident Richard Dooher, who is involved with the Friends Against Privatizing Constance Bay Beaches group. In a letter, White maintains those insisting some residents are trying to privatize the beach are inaccurate, because it is already private. “They and their ancestors have been paying taxes on it, maintaining it and have explicit title in law to the ownership and enjoyment of all of the land and rights conceded to them in their original deeds,” writes White. “There is no further discussion. That point is clear and unquestionable.” Those trying to trump private property rights with community wishes show a lack of respect for the rule of law as well as private property, White wrote. “The theft of private property for the good of the majority (state) makes me think Orwellian,” he added. “It can be imagined to happen at different times in places like, the former U.S.S.R. or maybe medieval Britain. Ah, but then came common law and the right to own property.”

Dooher “strongly disagrees” with White’s statements, arguing there is no written proof residents of 412 own the beach. In a letter, he points out that the Ministry of Natural Resources’ definition of shoreline is the ‘high water mark’ and people on Lane Street pay taxes on lots in the 10-k to 10.5-k square foot range (100 x 150 feet), not larger. Regarding White’s theft of private property comment, Dooher writes: “This property has been used publicly over the past 80 years and there is no theft taking place that wouldn’t have been corrected from the beginning. “Our inland community home owners have purchased their properties with the understanding the beaches could be used by all of us. Who would buy property on an island with no beach?” Dooher writes that the “abuse our residents are taking being chased from the beaches by waterfront owners is having an impact on the community residents and visitors. It makes all of us look ridiculous and in the end someone will be held responsible for these actions taken against our community.”

Soccer game did not involve Lane Street or its residents A story on Page 5 of last week’s West Carleton Review incorrectly indicated that 10-year-old boys playing a Brazilian style soccer game were on the Lane Street

beach. The game was on the Lighthouse beach and no one from Lane Street was present, agrees local councillor Eli ElChantiry.

It’s not your average summer camp experience. Making and Breaking Codes, Master of Disguise, The Hunt for a Mole and The Science Behind Spying are among the theme weeks for young campers at the Diefenbunker Spy Camp. It’s the first year for multiple weeks with different themes, says the Diefenbunker’s Christine McGuire. “They’ve really enjoyed the spy camp in past years and we wanted to give them a variety of programming,” says McGuire. Response to the change has been very positive, she says. “It’s been great. We’ve had several repeat spy campers. The camp has helped the Diefenbunker in its efforts to strengthen its bond with the community. “We really want to create more of a community base,” says McGuire. The kids are quite enthused with the spy camp and movies like The Spy Next Door have only increased the interest. “The whole spy concept is just so fascinating,” says McGuire.

Protesters of Beaver Pond development pack public meeting

More than 150 people packed into the hall to discuss the development plans of the South March Highlands. KNL representatives did not attend the meeting. We don’t want to hear any legal crap,” said resident David Clark. “We want to preserve our lands.” “We walk through these woods, our children walk through these woods,” said another resident. “Not Urbandale, not Premier

The city secured the best deal it could, said Wilkinson, with the developer agreeing to preserve 40 per cent of the land as a natural environment area. In 1981, the former city of Kanata agreed to allow development of 567 hectares of land running north of the Beaver Pond, in exchange for designating 40 per cent of the total area as open space. The open space was later defined as including the Kanata Lakes Golf & Country Club, the Trillium Woods and stormwater management areas and land to be used as parks. The land slated for development straddles the Kizell Pond and runs north of the Beaver Pond where it extends to Morgan’s Grant and the future Terry Fox Drive extension. “If we had not done the 40per-cent agreement you’d have seen more development land,” said Wilkinson. This is well above the provincial standard of five per cent said Wilkinson. The only way to preserve the land is to buy it or swap land – neither of which the city has the resources to do, said Wilkinson. The city values the total area approved for subdivision at $400 million. Mayoral candidates Clive

like the South March Highlands. “Can we save the South March Highlands?” asked Doucette at the meeting. “I think we can but it’s not going to be through the OMB process. “What we really need is a different view at city hall about the … importance of natural lands.”

Nothing will stop the development of the Beaver Pond lands, says a City of Ottawa lawyer. “KNL has a right to develop the lands,” said city solicitor Tim Marc at a public meeting to discuss the development of the South March Highlands at the Mlacak Centre July 15. “Let me be clear on this, the trees are going to come down.” KNL Development Ltd., a partnership of developers Urbandale Corp. and Richcraft Homes, had planned to begin clear-cutting trees on eight hectares of land north of the Beaver Pond last week. But city council passed a motion put forward by Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson preventing KNL from starting work July 19 as originally planned, until the company completes a set of conditions. City of Ottawa staff is waiting for KNL to present a tree conservation plan, a detailed inventory of species at risk, more information about buffers used for natural environment areas and grading and drainage plans. “There are certain elements of this plan that are insufficient,” said Astrid Nielsen, a city forester. KNL sent a letter to city council arguing it had fulfilled all requirements to move ahead with the development. But the motion will only delay the development, not stop it, warned Marc.

Doucette and Alex Cullen attended the meeting, voicing their support to stop the development. “The city can afford to appropriate some of this,” said Cullen. “We need to find out what’s available.” Doucette said voters must elect a council that places more value on natural environment areas,

Dalton McGuinty, and not Mayor Larry O’Brien.” The developer plans to build 3,200 homes on two square kilometres of forested land north of the Beaver Pond. Resident Jennifer Bygrave said the South March Highlands is the wrong area for a housing development. “You don’t put houses in an old growth forest,” she said. The Coalition to Save the South March Highlands will picket Urbandale offices if the developer starts chopping down trees, said coalition members. The coalition collected the names of volunteers to picket the company during the meeting.

ATTENTION - CARP BUSINESS PARK A suspicious red four-door Saturn with Ontario license ANCL832 was observed circling around a business parking lot on Reis Road in Carp at around 10 p.m. on Wednesday, July 21. The unidentified driver took off as soon as he realized there was another vehicle in the parking lot. On July 13, at around 12:30 a.m., about $20,000 worth of construction equipment was stolen from trailers that were broken into on Reis Road. A U-Haul truck was observed on surveillance cameras leaving with the stolen equipment. The truck was described as a Ford E-350 or similar type cube van. YOUNG DRIVERS OF WEST CARLETON Shortly after 4 a.m. on Monday, July 19, patrol officers received a traffic complaint from the OPP reporting a black truck was erratically driving through traffic on Hwy. 417. A complainant reported two female occupants were weaving in and out of traffic at high rates of speed and then slowing down. Police intercepted the suspect truck as it pulled into the Stittsville McDonald’s parking lot and discovered the young driver wasn’t actually drunk, but was in need of some extra driver’s education.

MISCHIEF July 18 - Woodkilton Road, Woodlawn: At around 6:30 p.m. Sunday, a passerby called police to report a broken window at the abandoned Torbolton School. On investigation police found a broken glass bottle lying on the classroom floor just beyond the frame of the shattered window. The school board was advised and will attend to secure the building. Thanks to the passerby for picking up on this vandalism and for helping to avert a potentially larger problem. Remember, you are the eyes and ears in the community. Let’s all work together to keep it safe and secure. July 19 - Jensen Court, Carp Village: A complainant called the OPS Call Centre to report an ongoing problem with kids egging her house. The latest incident occurred sometime between midnight and 7:30 a.m. Monday, where three eggs were thrown at her front door and windows.

One male suspect was described as 6-ft tall and dressed in all dark clothing with hoodies covering their heads. July 18 - 3800 block of Carp Road, Carp Village: A Blackberry and $15 in cash were stolen from an insecure vehicle parked in a complainant’s driveway. The theft occurred sometime between 12:30 and 6:45 a.m. Sunday. It’s believed the same culprits observed on Inniskillin Drive were also involved in this particular theft-from-vehicle incident. July 19 - Harbour Street, Fitzroy Harbour: A wooden ramp was reported stolen sometime between 4 p.m. on Saturday, July 17 and 3 p.m. Monday by unidentified thieves. The ramp was last seen lying on the ground at the side of the house.

ALONE TIME Shortly before 1:30 a.m. last Thursday, a patrol officer happened upon a suspicious looking vehicle in the Stonecrest Elementary School parking lot. When the officer approached the vehicle to investigate, he found two teens sitting sheepishly in the front seat. When asked why they were parked on school property, the teens responded, “we’re just looking for some alone time.” After advising the teens’ that they shouldn’t be on school property, the officer cleared the call with dispatcher as AIO (All in Order) and drove off into the night.

THEFTS July 16 - Snelgrove Drive, Carp Village: Sometime around midnight Friday, unidentified thieves rummaged through a complainant vehicle and stole her purse containing personal identification and credit cards. When the complainant happened to look out her window she noticed a tall thin male in light clothing running to a car that was parked in the cul-de-sac. On Sunday, July 18, a female was noticed attempting to use the stolen and cancelled credit card at the Ultramar Gas Bar. The female was described as white, 20-25 years of age, slim build, with dark brown hair tied up in a ponytail. She was wearing tight green shorts and a sleeveless black shirt. July 18 - Inniskillin Drive, Carp Village: At about. 4:20 a.m. Sunday, a complainant observed two unidentified suspects running across her front lawn and tripping in the drainage ditches between the houses. The males were last seen heading towards Francis Colbert Avenue. When the complainant went out to investigate, she discovered the suspects had rifled through her unlocked van and stole a TomTom GPS unit.

July 20 - 3800 block of Carp Road, Carp Village: A wallet containing personal identification and license cards was reported stolen from a complainant’s unlocked pickup truck. The complainant last saw his wallet July 17 at around 10 a.m. and discovered it missing Monday, July 19. Because of the proximity of this incident to the other theft from vehicles in Carp Village, it is believed the same suspects were involved in all three incidents. The West Carleton Police Centre is located at 5670 Carp Rd. and can be reached at 236-1222, ext. 2982. The centre is a “community problem-solving centre” and is responsible for the delivery of crime prevention programs.

EDITORIAL

LETTER

Review launches new look W

elcome to your new-look West Carleton Review. Long-time readers of the Review will notice some changes to their newspaper this week – starting with the front page. We have updated our page one banner, adding a splash of colour and an image that symbolizes our connection to the Ottawa region, and the natural beauty that typifies our community - the red maple leaf. A brand new layout provides teasers that point to interesting, local stories that you will find on the inside pages. It looks new. It feels new. But it is the continuation of a tradition that spans more than 30 years. Despite the paper’s fresh new look, however, one thing will never change, and that is our unwavering commitment to delivering top quality local news that reflects the people, places, events and issues that interest our readers. We’ve been doing it for three decades and we’ll keep doing it. It’s just the way we deliver it that may evolve over time. Like any other business, our industry is changing and we must adapt with the times. Although many people prefer the sensory experience of reading a physical newspaper, more and more people are turning to the Internet for their news - and we are there too. Our regional website www.yourottawaregion. com includes not only all the local news that you have come to expect from your Review, it also includes the local happenings from the communities that surround West Carleton as well. We see this as a win-win situation for everyone. You can not only check what is happening in your own community, but expand your horizons and see if there is anything going on where your family and friends may reside. As the weeks unfold, you will see more and more new online features such as photo galleries, videos, web exclusive content and photo reprint sales. And if you are a community organization, you can register as a trusted user on our online calendar and attract attention from beyond the borders covered by the West Carleton Review for free. We’re excited about the changes to your Review. We hope you are too. Let us know what you think!

Liability, tax issues affect beach ownership To the editor: Private property is just that, private. The owner somehow has managed to purchase or inherit a title to a set amount of land. The title/deed spells out the exact location of the land, the size and all other parameters, ie mineral rights, shoreline ownership and other covenants. Inside a city, there may also be many zoning bylaws. Constance Bay and my property have similar issues concerning the waterfront. They both have the Ottawa River as waterfront. In days past, the water level rose and fell dependent on the weather. Today the river has many dams to generate hydro power for the residents of Ontario. See BEACH, page 9

LETTER

All residents deserve comparable services To the editor: One of the predominant themes which has been conveyed as I have been knocking on doors in Ward 5 is the differences between the rural, suburban and urban wards in terms of services provided. A key element of my platform is to provide, wherever practical, comparable services to all city residents regardless of your location. In addition, I have discussed the fact that there is not always a need for urban/suburban specific services, rather that different services are optimal in some cases. The primary example of this is wading pools for children versus transportation around the ward and from the ward to the rest of the city. We, for the most part, have access to beaches like Fitzroy while the Glebites, for example, don’t have that type of asset readily available and thus a kids wading pool is of value to them.

Like it or not, we are, and will remain a personal vehicle-based ward, as transit is not cost effective or environmentally efficient with our low population density. This means we have a higher priority on getting our roads cleaned of snow before the rush hours to get to and from work in the winter. In Ward 5, we have a higher dependency on roads, a higher reliance on community centres and associations for entertainment and recreation than do the wards inside the Greenbelt, which have a variety of alternatives available for these functions. If I were to be elected to city council I would make sure these differences were addressed appropriately, such that when an urban or suburban item is approved and funded, that the rural wards also are considered for a similar, or offsetting type of project. I believe we need to listen to the differences and accept them (as many of you already do personally). In rural areas, we will have to accept

more (sub)urban located services in exchange for access to services we want. An example is winter road cleaning, where I would like to see a reduction in road salt use by switching over to “well-friendly” but perhaps higher cost alternatives and getting certain areas ploughed before people head to work. Should I be chosen as the Ward 5 Councillor in October, I would make sure that it is clear to council there is a difference in the services required by the rural wards and push to have them provided. As residents of the City of Ottawa, regardless of whether we choose to live in rural, urban, or suburban areas, the city council you elect has to ensure that they are all working together.

Can you provide a ‘forever family’ for this wonderful companion? Zeek was brought to the shelter in May after his owner was no longer able to look after him. He is a very handsome brown, one-and-a-half-year-old male tabby with white markings. Zeek, who has been neutered, is a quiet cat. He enjoys attention but is not demanding. Zeek loves to be petted and brushed but is not fond of being picked up and carried. Zeek is good with other cats.

Ripley is a special cat who is sure to keep his new family entertained. He has been at the shelter for almost two years after he was brought in as a stray. Ripley is a very handsome, seven-yearold neutered male He is an active, curious, outgoing cat who likes to explore. Ripley can be very affectionate - he loves to climb onto your shoulders and ride around. However, if he is not in the mood for attention he will let you know. He has lots of personality and can be quite silly. He likes to burrow under the blankets in the cat beds and poke his face out. He would be best suited in an adult-only home where he is the only pet.

telling people that the land is not public, but also state that you assume your own liability and to please respect the beach, etc. The city has also put in a new pier and boat launch area for all to use. I’d like to know what will happen when somebody falls off the pier onto rocks into inches of water. Who is on the hook for the liability at a pier plus or minus eight feet off the water with full public access? Some properties, such as Plan 412 residents, own to the shoreline. Most do not, or haven’t looked into it further to verify. Property owners should verify what rights they have, to ensure that the evaluation of their land for property taxes is correct. Waterfront properties are charged a premium on the tax bill based on the number of feet of shoreline. It is my opinion that if you don’t have ownership to the shoreline and anyone else is allowed to access the water or come and go as they wish on the OPG land, then the tax assessment premium for waterfront should be removed. The only rights as a land owner that could be verified by me were under the Navigable Water Act. This allows a landowner the right to cross the land between his property and the water in order to put in a boat and removable dock, as long as you stay inside of the continuation of your lot lines to the water.

From page 8 The water levels are controlled to level out power generation and keep minimum water levels for the property owners along its shores. Even if the survey pegs are well short of the waterline, the land is not public because the Ontario Power Generation has been given rights over it to allow them to raise the water levels when needed. I believe this is where the local residents of Constance Bay who live on the side streets/not waterfront, feel they can use OPG property as public property. This is simply not allowed even though the OPG is a publicly-owned utility. They want waterfront property owners to sign legal papers removing them from liability if you or your visitors get hurt while crossing your property and theirs to swim, boat, picnic or anything else. This is why the City of Ottawa is of the opinion that the lands are not public. The city does not want to assume any liability for public use. In Vydon Acres, there is no public access to the water at all. In Constance Bay the original surveys put in many avenues for people to access the water, probably because there are many miles of waterfront and the water levels fluctuate a great deal, so if you couldn’t launch your boat in one access area, you simply drove down to the next. To help the property owners at Constance Bay, the City of Ottawa has erected signs at the busiest access areas

West Carleton/March Council Notes

Do your part to keep Ottawa clean, green and litter-free With warm weather and sunshine many of us are heading outside to enjoy our beautiful city. The most important thing we can all do to keep it beautiful is put litter and recyclables where they belong. Your city has 2,900 waste receptacles stationed all around our streets, parks and tourist sites. Many of these also have a place to deposit your recyclable materials too. Look for the ‘LitterBug’ logo throughout the city. This logo is a reminder to fight against litter. In addition to keeping our city looking great, there is also a huge benefit to our tourism industry. Each year we welcome over 7.3 million visitors who spend over $1.18 billion. Of course, we all have a part to play by putting litter and recyclables where they belong, but we can do more to fight the ‘LitterBug’ in Ottawa.  Put extinguished cigarette butts in appropriate waste containers. Did you know that if every smoker in Ottawa throws just one butt on the ground every day that equals over 58 million butts on our streets, in our parks and in rivers every year? Each cigarette butt takes 15 years to decompose.  Volunteer to be part of the city’s community cleanup initiatives including Adopt-a-Park/Adopt-a-Roadway programs and Cleaning the Capital. In 2009, more than 87,000 volunteers collected over 151,000 kg of litter. Fall Cleaning the Capital is set for Sept. 15 to Oct. 15. Registration starts Aug. 15. For more information on the city’s community cleanup initiatives, visit ottawa.ca/clean or call 3-1-1 (TTY: 613-580-2401).  Report excessive litter by calling 3-1-1. Let’s make sure we have the cleanest, most beautiful city for many years to come. Together, we can help keep Ottawa clean, green and litter-free. As always, please contact me at any time: Eli El-Chantiry Proudly Serving West Carleton-March, Ward 5 5670 Carp Road, Kinburn, On K0A 2H0 www.Ward5Eli.com Phone: 613-580-2475, fax: email: eli.el-chantiry@ottawa.ca

wellness and nutrition vendors to local meat on a bun, drew in crowds throughout the morning and afternoon. Gerry Bedard, chair of the organizing committee, said they estimated more than 3,000 visitors at this year’s event, which is significantly higher than last year’s HerbFest. “The weather was perfect – not too hot, not too cold,” said Bedard of this past Sunday. While it rained in most of Lanark County and Ottawa last year, not even a single drop fell at the Herb Garden. However, because of the forecast, many people stayed away last year, said Bedard. This year’s turnout was so great; the parking lot was overflowed in the afternoon. Bedard said with the help of the 60 volunteers, the 100-plus vendors did very well financially, thanks to the great turnout. “This festival is done by a notfor-profit organization,” said Bedard. “The purpose is to promote small, local businesses and artisans.” Anyone who missed HerbFest has a chance to enjoy a different event this coming weekend as the last show of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s

Escape to the past Sunday at the Heritage Trades Festival at Pinhey’s Point City of Ottawa

DUNROBIN SHORES - Here in the 21st century, things are pretty easy – nearly anything you could ever want is available at a store nearby. But in the early 1900s, things weren’t so simple. If you wanted something done, you had to do it yourself – giving people in the past a range of skills we don’t use anymore! People can rediscover their skilled roots, however, this Sunday, Aug. 1 at Pinhey’s Point Historic Site during the Heritage Trades Festival. Visitors can discover heritage trades such as blacksmithing, carpentry, tinsmithing and lacemaking – all trades that have overwhelmingly been replaced by machines and mass production. “Having something like this is important, because we’re able to look back in time and really see how far we’ve come,” said Ashley Moores, education and interpretation officer for Pinhey’s Point. “You can come to Pinhey’s Point and see real trades people doing their work in the same environment where they would have done it a hundred years ago, using the same tools and materials.” And in terms of having cre-

Pinhey’s Point Historic Site hosts the Heritage Trades Festival this Sunday. ating an authentic environment for this kind of event, you couldn’t ask for a better space than Pinhey’s Point. The 88-acre historic site and estate located on the scenic shores of the Ottawa River represents a time when possessing the skills and knowledge of heritage trades were a means of survival and daily life. The estate, ‘Horaceville’ was the home of Hamnett Kirkes Pinhey, a British settler who became a leading member of Upper Canada. “A historical house is an ideal venue for this kind of event, because it really puts the heri-

sorts of other fun will be happening throughout the day such as heritage games and activities, crafts for kids, tours of the historic ‘Horaceville’ house, and lots of entertainment, including a Victorian Medical Show, where retired nurse Nancy MacLeod will treat visitors to an eye-

tage trades into context,” said Moores. Heritage trades such as blacksmithing, carpentry, lace making and much more will be on display all day long on Aug. 1, with demonstrations from real artisans, and workshop activities so that visitors can try their own hand at skills from the past. Robert Vaughan, the resident blacksmith at Cumberland Heritage Village Museum, will be bringing his tools and portable forge (that he made himself) to show off his iron-clad skills at the event. He said he will be hammering, bending and cutting away on a special project throughout the day. Visitors are encouraged to stop by his booth to watch and ask questions, as well as listen to his interactive demonstration on the art of blacksmithing. Vaughan said that while all heritage trades have been fading over the years, he is still very hopeful about the longevity of blacksmithing. “I don’t think the trade has really faded away at all. What has disappeared though is the small village blacksmith shop – people don’t really have a local blacksmith anymore,” said Vaughan, who has been blacksmithing for 22 years. In addition to the artisans, all

Michael Runtz Nature’s Way Hundreds, even thousands, will adorn the grasses, flowers, and bushes as far as your eye can see. Yet come back after a few hours and they will have vanished. The structures are spider webs and their abundance in late summer is mind-boggling. These death traps are visible at dawn because then they are covered in dew. Spider webs are made of silk (most webs contain several types), which must remain elastic in order to

H O M E S

do its job. For that reason, silk absorbs moisture. When you stretch an old, dehydrated elastic band you soon learn the consequences of drying out. This absorptive property makes webs particularly attractive to dew. However, under the sun’s caress, the drops eventually evaporate, rendering the lethal traps invisible to work their magic. Dew allows us to not only to see webs but also admire their complexity and diversity. Funnel Weaver and Sheet Web spider webs lay parallel to the ground. The spectacular circular webs of Orb-Weaver Spiders hang perpendicular to the ground. But not all webs vanish by late morning. Those of the Black and Yellow Argiope contain a conspicuous zigzag pattern in the centre, on which rests the large and colourful maker.

Much of our local animal life is difficult to see. Many creatures bear patterns that blend so perfectly into the background we do not see them until they move. Such is the case of female Ruffed Grouse on their nests. Others are so tiny only the trained eye can detect them. Soil animals such as Springtails are case in point. Then there are animals whose presence is best detected by the structures they build. Likely you have seen many more beaver lodges than you have their makers. Currently, certain structures are revealing the presence of much smaller animals. Unlike beaver lodges, however, these are not visible during the day and are usually only seen just as the sun begins to rise. While they exist in almost every habitat, open meadows or marshes offer the best views of them. Look toward the rising sun and there they will be.

The mysterious case of the vanishing death trap

Ontario’s new no-alcohol rule begins Sunday for young drivers Under new provincial regulations effective this Sunday, Aug. 1, all drivers 21 years of age and younger must have a zero blood alcohol level when they get behind the wheel in Ontario. Offenders face an immediate 24-hour or 30-day licence suspensions and up to $500 in fines. Drivers in the Graduated Licensing System will face tougher penalties if they violate

the conditions of their licence or if they are convicted of any Highway Traffic Act offences that carry four or more demerit points. Penalties include a 30-day licence suspension for the first instance and a 90-day licence suspension for the second. Further instances can lead to a cancellation of the licence and other penalties.

Also, effective Aug. 3, eligible drivers convicted of an impaired driving offence for the first time will be able to reduce their licence suspension if they agree to have an ignition interlock device installed in their vehicle, at their own cost. “Extending the zero BAC requirement gives young drivers the chance to gain more driving experience without

For the love of feral felines All systems go for Trap-NeuterRelease day at the Fisher Farm

I had a very lucky phone call last week. A friend of ours, who is a veterinarian, was giving me some advice on my barn cat population. Halfway through the conversation, he offered to come out to the farm and perform surgery on as many as I can catch. At first I thought I was hearing things. But rather than look the gift horse in the mouth (what a weird expression) and ask too many questions, I thanked him and hung up with the direction to collect as many cat carriers as possible in order to catch my mostly feral feline family. And I would study up on the Trap-Neuter-Release (TNR) process. I contacted Paul Lafleur of the Village Kitten Rescue in North Gower, for advice on trapping the little beasties. He was extremely helpful, showing up within a couple of days with two dozen cat carriers. Some readers may remember my comments one year ago, when I stated that I would not be spaying and neutering my barn cats. Our feline population was controlling itself at the time, I thought. That is no longer the case. I trolled the Web for more info on luring and trapping. Www.alleycat. org is full of sound advice and insight. The worst thing you can do for a feral cat, the site states, is to catch it and bring it to an animal shelter. First of all, it is not adoptable. Wild cats are not good house pet mate-

THE ACCIDENTAL FARMWIFE Diana Fisher rial. Wild kittens, on the other hand, have a chance of being tamed. The trick is to socialize them as soon as possible. Several of our barn cats now march right into the house – one even knows how to slide the screen door open to let himself in – because we have been handling them since they were tiny. Once given their shots, they will be quite good pets to some lucky Fisher farm visitor. But if we don’t do something about the adult feral felines, the overpopulation will only get worse. I’m already starting to resemble a crazy cat lady, as I shuffle along to the barn with a dozen little critters at my feet. The Trap-Neuter-Release method sounds like the solution to our problems. Of course, it has been suggested before by a few well-meaning yet highly critical people who must think I have all the money in the world. Perhaps they thought I had one or two cats to fix. But with the good doctor’s help, we will get this cat collection under control. Catching and culling my cats, as some other farmers have suggested, is not a reasonable method of controlling the population either, in case it has crossed your mind. I have a food supply here – rodents in my sheep feed. Cats will always be here,

and having to routinely put the “excess” kittens down is not something that I can allow in my environment. I have assembled the cat carriers. They are lined with newspaper. I am putting small amounts of food in the cages, to allow the cats to become comfortable inside the small spaces. On TNR day, I will put a tiny delicious pile of something – perhaps tuna? – inside each cage. Cat will go in, and I will then tuck his or her tail in and latch the door. Doc will come, needle the cat into a nice blue dream, my assistants (five cat-loving daughters) will carry the sleeping patients to the surgery deck (yet to be determined – the Farmer is thinking “not my kitchen island”) and the work will begin. Post-surgery, the cats will be gently placed back in their carriers until the drug wears off. They have trouble controlling their body temperature during this recovery phase (also learned that from alleycat. org), so they will remain in the house overnight. I expect we will awake the next day to quite a racket. And when we release the cats back to their homes in the hay bales, they will have quite a shared adventure to discuss. During my inquiries regarding TNR, I also met someone named Gwen Thompson, who is running the Country Cat Rescue. She has her hands – and house – full of kittens that she lovingly cares for until someone adopts them. Unfortunately, since the recent tainted pet food catastrophe, her suppliers (Purina and Iams) are no longer sending her donations. If any Farmwife readers out there know of a way - a corporate donation would be lovely – or a grant of some kind - to keep Gwen in kitty food, please give her a call: 613.258.2622 – www.countrycatrescue.

Expect another ‘tax grab’, warns MPP Norm Sterling included prescription and over-the-counter medications, sun block and grass seed, he said. Sterling said that almost everyone agrees with the goal of keeping hazardous waste out of landfill, but taxpayers need to be able to see how a tax or fee is contributing to that goal. “It appears that McGuinty is running our province on

the very juvenile theory that it is easier to ask for forgiveness afterwards than ask for permission before hand,” said Sterling. “I don’t believe this will be the last time he will try to sneak a tax grab by Ontarians. We’ll just have to keep a close eye on everything he does.”

The provincial government has backed down on eco-fees for now, but axes expect them to try new “tax grabs,” says Carleton-Mississippi Mills MPP Norm Sterling. He said that the Liberals have misjudged how angry the eco-taxes introduced July 1 would make taxpayers. “Now the environment minister is saying he will spend 90 days consulting with business and consumers about how to fund hazardous waste diversion,” said Sterling. “They should have consulted first and explained the program to taxpayers and consumers before it began.” Sterling noted that the now withdrawn fees were applied to more than 9,000 common household items designated as hazardous. The list included some truly hazardous items like singleuse batteries and aerosol containers but also

Quyon captures Read Memorial title JOHN CARTER john.carter@metroland.com

The Quyon Combat Flyers won the third annual Gil Read Memorial Men’s Fastpitch Tournament at the Carp Fairgrounds on the weekend. The Flyers, led by Joran Graham’s heroics, won the 10-team tournament with a convincing 8-1 victory Sunday over their Greater Ottawa Fastball League rivals, Kars Aces, in the final game. Graham pitched the Flyers to victory and helped his own cause with a three-run homerun in the second inning. It was one of several key hits he had during the weekend. The Quebecers are on a roll, as they are making a concerted effort in league play to catch the Aces, who have topped the standings for most of the season. The weekend’s tournament, the most prestigious fastball event in Ottawa, attracted large crowds and was blessed by sunny weather. The tournament is held in memory of longtime Ottawa-area coach Gil Read. Read, who died of a stroke at the age of 53 in 2007, led three fastball teams to the Canadian Championships and coached Team Ontario to gold medals at three Canada Summer Games. The tournament raises money for the Gil Read Memorial Foundation, which helps less fortunate children compete in sports across the city by providing equipment for them. The three-day tournament had already raised $2,000 in gate receipts by Saturday afternoon. The Read family was introduced at the start of the tournament. Gil Read’s nephew, Al Read, said the volunteer organizers put on “a very good tournament” and appreciate the support of sponsors and the large number of people who turn out to see the games. The two West Carleton teams squared off in the feature game Friday night with Carp 14C Victory thumping Fitzroy Harbour West Carleton Electric 10-1. West Carleton Electric, led by pitcher Steve Cavanagh, rebounded Saturday with impressive wins over Team Quebec and Roebuck Rampage before losing to Kars. The Fitzroy-based team played well, considering it is in the cellar of the eight-member Greater Ottawa Fastball League. The third-place Carp team, on the other hand, was tied 1-1 by the Rampage. Pre-tournament favourite, Donnacona Blue Sox, had several key players missing and did not make the finals.
