What’s cooking? City health inspections provide peek inside local kitchens NEVIL HUNT nevil.hunt@metroland.com

City restaurant inspections have been online for more than a year now, providing a good snapshot of food safety trends in West Carleton. The city’s website lists 73 food vendors in the ward of West Carleton-March. When convenience stores, schools, arenas and community centres are removed from the list, 36 commercial eating establishments remain. They vary from chip wagons to fine dining. A review of the inspections for those 36 eateries show the city has carried out 163 inspections since April 15, 2009, when the reports went online. The numbers show some problems and some good news too: • 107 inspections came back with no issues,

• 40 critical issues were found, • 107 non-critical issues were found, • 11 establishments get top marks, with no issues identified after multiple inspections. Potential critical issues include: • hazardous foods – such as poultry, meat, fish and shellfish – are not cooked to the proper internal temperature required to kill potentially harmful bacteria, such as hamburger disease and salmonella, • the same types of hazardous foods are not refrigerated or frozen enough to stop the growth of harmful bacteria, • ready-to-eat foods contaminated by being in contact with raw foods, chemicals or pesticides, • a potential for food contamination due to insect or rodent infestation.

Seniors get more options to live at home Added funding should reduce demand on hospitals NEVIL HUNT nevil.hunt@metroland.com

Lynn Bilson looks frail and moves slowly. With each step she makes sure her four-footed cane lands squarely before she continues. But Bilson doesn’t feel sorry for herself.

If anything, she’s happy to be moving so well. Bilson was in hospital not long ago, and soon after became a client of the Going Home program, which helps the frailest of the frail with day-to-day activities after they are released from the hospital. “I appreciated all the help I got with transportation, meals on wheels and basic house cleaning,” Bilson said during the Aug. 31 announcement of more provincial

funding for Going Home. She added that the assistance around her house helped speed her recovery: “It certainly made a difference for me,” Bilson said. The province will spend $1.1 billion over the next four years on a strategy to help seniors live in their own homes. The local Going Home program operates across the Champlain Local Health Integration Network (LHIN), which covers most of eastern Ontario. The network will receive more than $27 million this

year to provide health services to seniors at home. A successful fall-prevention program will also be beefed up in an effort to reduce injuries that tax the hospital system and may lead to seniors being forced to move from their homes to long-term care. Seniors who decide to stay in their homes – instead of moving to institutions – get the personal satisfaction that comes from independence. See ‘FALLS’ page 3

Most critical issues in West Carleton-March related to the storage of food at unsafe temperatures or left open to contamination. Some other critical issues arose from raw and cooked food stored where there could be cross-contamination. Critical infractions that pose an immediate risk of foodborne illness must be corrected right away. Eateries in West Carleton-March that had a critical issue fixed the issue immediately, making the inspector’s final option – closure of the kitchen – unnecessary since the reports went online more than 16 months ago.

“The staff spend a lot of time cleaning,” said Loch March food and beverage manager Vic Bode. “We have very conscientious individuals doing good work on a daily basis.” Bode said the club’s owner invests in training – in the kitchen and out. That includes health and safety training as well as first aid and CPR courses for all staff. “People take pride in their work,” Bode said. Twisty Cream, an ice cream take-out in the village of Carp, also scored top marks during the past three inspections. “It’s a co-operative thing,” said Gary LeBlanc, who owns the shop with his wife Sallie. He also gave credit to the previous owners, Helen and Roy Hood. LeBlanc said that when the Hoods sold them the shop, they provided training that emphasized cleanliness. One key may be a checklist the staff uses to make sure all tasks are completed. “(The employees) know what needs to be done,” he said. Inspection results from across the city can be found on the city website at ottawa.ca/health and then clicking the link for “Restaurant inspections.” The advanced search allows searches by ward.

City looks at work-at-home perception of having employees work at home. “We have to have a really good way of measuring productivity,” he said. “We can’t have it become a joke, oh you work for the city and you can stay home.” McRae said the motion was simply following the example of the federal government and the private sector, who already employ telecommuting practices.

The province and its taxpayers benefit too, with fewer emergency room visits thanks to the fallprevention program, and shorter hospital stays because of Going Home. “We provide seniors with choices to stay in their own home and in their own community,” said LHIN senior director of planning Chantale LeClerc during the funding announcement at the Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre in Kanata. LeClerc said the current Going Home and fall-prevention programs decrease visits to emergency rooms and – if an injury does occur – gets the patient home sooner. “(Going Home) helps with the basics: shopping, meals, transportation and maintenance at home,” LeClerc said. Going Home assisted 1,200 clients in 2009, which saved an estimated 1,200 days of hospital care while making hundreds of potential return emergency room visits unnecessary. LeClerc estimated Going Home may serve as many as 1,800 people this year across the LHIN’s area. For information on Going Home, call 1-877-818-0884.

region. The goal is to reduce the risk of falls for seniors who choose to live in their own home. “Falls are the leading cause of injury in seniors,” said co-ordinator Trish Brown, adding that falls cost the Ontario healthcare system $4.4 billion annually. “A hip fracture costs the system $33,000 plus the extra care in the community and the cost to the individual and their family.” Brown said falls are not an inevitable part of aging, and with the oncoming and rapid rise in the number of seniors, prevention is increasingly valuable. “We need to get the message out now,” she said. The fall-prevention program assesses each senior in their home and identifies risks. Return visits and one-on-one education are also provided. In the case of client Catherine Allan, a senior who attended the funding announcement, the individual care has helped with her balance. “One of the issues we identified was that exercise options for frail seniors are very limited,” Brown said. Allan received an individual exercise program and has since shown measurable improvement in her balance. Brown said Allan has since become a vocal advocate for the fall-prevention program, telling her friends about the positive outcome. The program has received 110 referrals since it began in 2009, and seniors can refer themselves for assistance. For information on fall-prevention, call 613-820-4922.

Council approved a plan to have staff work from home wherever possible on Aug. 24. The motion was brought forward by River Coun. Maria McRae. Kanata-North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson added a friendly amendment to tie the recommendation to the city’s information technology committee. “I think we should have a five-year-technology road map in place to look at what kind of technology we need to put this plan into place,” Wilkinson said. Studies have found teleworking up to a few days a week can increase an employee’s productivity and reduce overtime and other related costs, McRae’s motion says. Deputy city manager Steve Kanellakos said the city is reviewing its units to see where teleworking might be feasible. In most areas, “this is not going to be a possible solution,” but there are some where it may make strategic sense, he said. Gloucester-South Nepean Coun. Steve Desroches Coun. said that initiatives like this were crucial to solve the traffic problems downtown. “I think we not only have to look at transit solutions, but also modify our behaviours to keep people from commuting into the downtown,” he said. West Carleton March Coun. Eli El-Chantiry cautioned that council should be cognizant of the

Travellers love their Quyon ferry Boats link economies, culture and tourism NEVIL HUNT nevil.hunt@metroland.com

The Ottawa River once provided thousands of jobs. Log drivers and roughriders, fur trappers and ice harvesters. Today it’s a route for pleasure boaters, a quiet spot for fishers, and a seasonal job for a handful of people who pilot ferries. On a sparkling Friday morning, only one of two ferries is needed to meet demand on the Fitzroy Harbour-Quyon route. The West Carleton Review plied the waves – OK, calm waters – on Aug. 27 aboard The McColgan to see who uses the community’s single link to Quebec. The answer: a diverse group that includes commuters, daytrippers and lots of cottagers. Come Friday and Saturday nights, that changes, as dozens of West Carleton’s young folks head to bars that offer a lower drinking age than the Ontario Photos by Nevil Hunt side. Sharon Hughes and her chihuahua Pepito head for a cottage in Quebec aboard the Quyon ferry. Unlike driving via a bridge, “I was born and raised on this ferry,” says Mel Cross, who is exHughes says the trip by water ‘gets you in the mood for the cottage.’ aggerating just a little. Born, no.

With Quyon in the background, the Quyon ferry prepares to dock on the Ontario side of the Ottawa River, near Fitzroy Harbour. The ferries – there are two of them – take about six minutes to complete each crossing, providing the only west-Ottawa link between the provinces. Many use the boat to reach cottages in Quebec without the need to fight traffic on city bridges while other commute to work.

Rush hour without the rush Continued from page 4 McKenny says working weekend nights loses its appeal with time. “When I was young it was fun,” he says. “Not quite so much now I’m older.” As might be expected when a job is repetitive, McKenny and Teevens appear to operate on autopilot as they get the job done, but it also brings out the people-person in them. Both chat with anyone who wants to gab, and both wish drivers a good trip as they disembark. It’s a little after 10 a.m. and Jerry Dolan is heading to Quebec’s Otter Lake to visit a friend. The Barrhaven man says he had a choice of routes and picked the ferry over the bridges in Ottawa or near Renfrew. He says he used to live on Stonecrest Road in West Carleton years ago, but may not have been aboard the ferry since the 1980s. “It’s a nice drive up; a lot nicer than the other ways,” Dolan says, adding the fare is a surprise. “The price is higher than I thought.” Despite the cost, Dolan said he’d likely travel home on the ferry. “If I come back in rush hour,” he says, “I’m definitely not going through Ottawa.” Between 10 a.m. and

noon, the ferry carries as many as five cars on a trip. On one crossing it goes empty, heading south to pick up a car that’s waiting on the Ontario side. The McColgan can carry seven cars – eight if they’re very small. It’s almost 10:30 a.m. when Sharon Hughes brings aboard some interesting cargo for the trip to Quyon. In her back seat is Pepito, a chihuahua, and a palm tree. The dog is real, but the palm tree is made of cardboard. “We’re actually going to a 50th birthday party,” Hughes says, adding that the palm is a prop. The destination is her brother’s cottage. She lives in Kanata but used to reside in Dunrobin and makes the ferry trip about once a month, calling a way to unwind. “It’s pretty,” Hughes says of the crossing. “It’s the fastest way to get there and it gets you in the mood for the cottage.” Another of Quebec’s many cottages is the draw for Pat and Suzanne Durkin, who know the ferry

staff by name. They’ve taken the ferry on just about every summer weekend for the past 20 years. Pat says the ferry isn’t any faster than going by bridge “but you get a break when you’re cruising across the river.” Pat looks to be in his 60s and says he’s been a ferry customer since he was a teenager, when he worked on a farm near Bristol, about 20 kilometres west of Quyon. It’s Friday noon, and another sunny weekend at the cottage awaits the Durkins. McKenny spins the ship’s wheel again, the same as he’s done so many times before. The boat comes to a rest against the ramp without any noticeable thump. Teevens slides the gate open and ties off. Again. Cars engines start up and McKenny gives directions and a farewell. “Back, back, back. Good,” he says, and the car starts up the ramp. “Take care now.” For directions to the ferry and hours of operation, visit www.quyonferry.com.

Photo by John Carter ish double decker bus (with indoor seating) in Manotick. Second went to S&G Fries on Carling Avenue. Besides the service with a smile at Sweet Potato, customers often cite the chip truck’s one-of-a-kind poutine as a reason for returning. “We call it our Harvest Poutine. You can only get it in the fall,” she said. “It’s very popular.”

The dish begins with a mix of sweet and regular potatoes, then is topped with turkey stuffing, dotted with quality cheese curds, and finally is smothered in a special beef gravy. “People ask for it all year, but we tell them they have to wait.” Sweet Potato is also one of, if not the only, chip truck that raises funds for cancer. They hold a Canada Day

The owners are “bracing” for the upcoming Carp Fair from Sept. 23 to 26. It always represents a peak period for the little chip truck that according to its slogan is: a cut above.

Ever wonder what the third most popular chip truck is in the Eastern Ontario and western Quebec region? Number four is the famous Wes’ Chips in Arnprior. But number three? That goes to Carp’s own - the three-yearold Sweet Potato. “I was pretty happy about that,” said co-owner Andrea Yagminas, on her business’ ranking in a CTV Ottawa contest. The contest was meant to show how much support exists in the public for chip trucks, which are coming under increasing pressure to pay higher fees and submit to more regulations in recent years. The contest encouraged chip truck owners to drum up support by having customers log onto the website and vote for their favourite. Almost 100 chip trucks received votes. “Our customers are really loyal,” Yagminas said, who along with husband Joey are at the Donald B.

The devastating consequences of drinking and driving can last a lifetime. Ask Callum Scott as he lovingly placed a hand-made cross alongside old Highway 17 near Antrim Saturday marking the 50th anniversary of the death of his mother. Scott was only four years old when Eileen Mabel Scott (nee Steele) of Renfrew was killed Sept. 4, 1960 in an horrific headon crash on the highway between Antrim and the Mississippi River bridge. Eileen Scott died at the age of 28, leaving her husband, Walter, a widower, and three children – Janice, Callum and Robert – without a mother. According to news reports of the incident, police determined the collision, which also killed three people in the other car, was the result of drinking and driving. Walter and Eileen Scott were returning with best friends Tom and Fern McDowell, also of Renfrew, from a Labour Day weekend Ottawa Roughriders football game. They had just passed by Antrim about 11 p.m. when a vehicle coming toward them from a party in Rhoddy’s Bay pulled out to pass a line of cars. Eileen Scott, who was sitting in the front passenger seat took the brunt of the collision and died on the scene. “I lost my beautiful and most talented mother, forever,” said Callum. “Families were shattered, hearts broken, hopes and dreams perished.” He noted the family was only two days away from moving from their house at 305 Lochiel St. to a newly completed home, which his mother helped design, on Stevenson Crescent.

Scott was raised in Renfrew and worked for a time at Gillies Lumber in Braeside. He has been thinking about commemorating the 50th anniversary of his mother’s death for many years, especially after he returned to Renfrew to live. As the day grew near, he crafted a cross with a photograph of his parents and another of his mother playing a violin to place on the spot where she died. “So on this solemn day of remembrance, as I reflect on what happened to my family on this stretch of Highway 17 so many years ago, (with this cross I say) ‘I love you mom’ and I will remember you as you are in my thoughts each and every day,” he said. Scott advises everyone who reads the story to give his or her mother a big hug and tell her “I love you mom,” because she too will someday be gone forever. “I did not have that opportunity (because of drinking and driving),” he said. “Drinking and driving are a deadly duo where there are no winners. The message is simple: If you drink, don’t drive.”

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

On programs and peanuts

Carp dump owners act responsibly

Is it too little, too late for Premier Dalton McGuinty and his Liberal government? No doubt the plan announced Labour Day to introduce a Children’s Activity Tax Credit this fall is a good one. Any time taxpayers get a bit of their hard earned dollars back, it can’t be bad. But will voters reward the Liberals again come autumn 2011? The credit would mean, annually, up to $50 per child under 16, and as much as $100 for disabled kids under 18. McGuinty said the tax break is meant to “defray” the cost of activities such as hockey and soccer, along with art, dance, language training and others. Sound familiar? The tax credit is similar to the popular one introduced by the federal Conservative government. Too bad governments don’t figure out that not taking workers’ money in the first place is the best program of all. That aside, when it comes to the province’s plan, parents who spend $500 on activities for their child would receive a refund of $50 when they do their taxes next spring. Peanuts, anyone? Hockey registration alone far exceeds $500. Hydro bills are skyrocketing; gasoline is expected to reach $2 a litre in 2012; governments at all levels continue to raise taxes by more than the inflation rate; salaries have remained stagnant since the last recession; and it goes on and on. No wonder McGuinty opted to play up the health benefits of his proposed credit, and downplay the monetary rewards. “(Parents) want to do right by their kids. They want to make sure they have all the opportunities they need to grow up strong and secure and to become happy,” he said at a Toronto YMCA. “This is one way we can help put those kids on that path while at the same time recognizing it’s a real challenge for parents to make ends meet today.” From the health care “fee” to the HST, teflon Dalton has spent seven years taking more and more taxpayers’ dollars. We are fine with governments needing more money, but only after they have proven that all fat is trimmed from the public sector. That is far from the case in Ontario. Too little, too late? Voters will decide.

To the editor: Campaign issues are really few and far between in West Carleton. Aside from the roads/transportation for the residents, garbage is the only totally encompassing issue for all property or business owners. Unfortunately businesses are left to pay for the removal of their garbage and, therefore, take the least expensive route in hiring a firm that usually drops off a bin and takes all garbage at one time economically for their customers. The city of Ottawa does a good job of getting the garbage picked up at the curb, but relies on the citizens to separate recyclables and organic material into different bins and sends up to three trucks per week to pick up the separate parts of your houseLETTER TO THE EDITOR hold waste.

2) Take in the garbage and deal with the problems in an environmentally sound manner including water and odour/gas problems. The odours that used to blanket the surrounding areas are for the most part gone due to Waste Management spending lots of private money collecting the gasses and burning them in five large cat generators producing 6.4 megawatts of power. It is true that the dump

is in view for all to see, but from what I saw, Waste Management has done and is going to continue to make money, hire people and take Ottawa’s commercial garbage in a very responsible way and I would hope that they get the necessary permits to continue. As a private company, Waste Management pays property taxes and costs the taxpayers nothing for their service (businesses aside). James Parsons Ward 5 council candidate

Remove de-amalgamation signs Continued from 9 Someone will have to pick up the costs if fares drop, and that would be the taxpayer. Coun. El-Chantiry would have no reason to make up the possible tax costs and it certainly wouldn’t be a few dollars that Mrs. Muldoon refers to. In any event, we should be asked rather than just have it tacked on our bill. Simple economics would tell you that if you lower the cost, usage would go up, which would then increase costs overall. I would have to assume that people living out here used to drive, and for one reason or another can’t anymore. It may sound a little harsh, but the costs saved from no longer having to pay for car insurance, gas and maintenance would more than cover dozens of trips to the doctor each year. City budgets are gone over line by line by the various committees in order to find savings, which was done in last year’s

budgets. Candidate Aronec proposal to go over the budget line by line offers nothing new. Finally, we are rapidly approaching the time when candidates signs will dot our region and then after the election will disappear. Perhaps the Carleton County organization might consider doing the same with their signs. Their dream of de-amalgamation is never going to happen. They’ve admitted as much, so the signs should go. This organization has long made a case as to how they cared for the land, and they were the ones who were out to protect it. You would think then, that they would be interested in getting rid of the visual pollution that dots our countryside, particularly since it no longer serves the purpose that it was originally intended. If they really believe what they say, the signs will come down. Jeff Spooner Kinburn

Council gets mixed reviews A not-for-profit environmental organization announced the 2010 Council Watch Report Card at an event at City Hall on Sept. 7 and West Carleton-March’s councillor didn’t fare well. While six councillors scored in the A range from Ecology Ottawa, and a further five scored in the B range, a majority (13 of 24) received a grade of C+ or lower over their four years in office. Among them, Mayor Larry O’Brien received a C- in the 2010 report, but a D over his four years in office. West Carleton-March Coun. Eli El-Chantiry received a C- for 2010, and averaged a D over the term of council. “We want council to know that we are watching as it relates to the environment and when they do well we will applaud and when

they don’t, it will be noticed,” said Ian Thomson, a member of Ecology Ottawa’s steering committee and the co-ordinator of the 2010 report. FIFTH REPORT This is the fifth time that Ecology Ottawa has released a report card documenting the environmental performance of city council. Council members’ grades were based on how they voted on 17 key decisions made at city council between November 2009 and June 2010. Ecology Ottawa allows that this system of grading is not rigorously scientific and does not capture every element of a councillor’s performance at city hall.

To the editor: I have conducted a high level review of the results of the last (2006) municipal election in Ottawa. When I focused on the 23 wards in Ottawa, several interesting facts showed up. First, voter apathy was readily apparent. I don’t know if it was the weather, the Incumbency factor or just ‘who cares’ but the turnout across the city was miserable. The four western wards had the highest percentage turnouts with ward 6 at 64 per cent; ward 6 at 62 and wards 4 and 23 each at 61. Conversely, four wards had a less than 50 per cent turnout and an additional two wards had exactly 50. City wide, the average turnout was 54. This was a mediocre result to say the least. Next, if we look at the results on a ward by ward basis we find

another interesting statistic. In none of the 23 wards did the winning candidate get near, let alone over 50 per cent of the available vote. We live in a democracy, and as such, accept that the candidate with the most votes cast will win. Reviewing the results based on this criteria showed that of the 23 wards, there was six where the candidate was elected with less than 50 per cent of the popular vote and one additional ward where the winner got 50.5. In 2007, the city did a report which in part stated: “68 candidates ran for 23 councillor seats, including 19 incumbents running for re-election … all 19 incumbents were re-elected.” This report looks back at a similar one from the 2003. This is just one of the reasons I am running and have already committed to push for term limits and

will hold to those personally even if the new council does not adopt my motion to that effect. The last term of council has been strongly criticized in the media as being ineffective, divisive, for showing up at the opening of a door if a camera is present and so on. However if you feel, they are the representatives that were elected by the majority of those who did vote. In the next several weeks, you will have the opportunity to determine the municipal landscape of the city of Ottawa for the next four years. Please take some time, get to know what each candidate offers and vote for those who you think will serve you best. Let’s see if ward 5 can have the highest percentage turn out this vote!

September equals school safety: Ottawa police Patrol officers in the West Carleton area responded to 59 general calls for service from the public for the reporting period of Aug. 27 to the Sept. 2. September – think school zone traffic safety – it could save a life. Time for thousands of kids to return to school and with this comes a change in routine as parents and students plan to get to and from school. At the beginning of every school year, the Ottawa Police Service experiences a spike in the number of traffic complaints related to school zones. Most parents who drive through school zones have children attending school somewhere. So, as you travel through these zones, please exercise the same level of caution that you would if these pedestrians were your children. I SMOKED A LOT The officer found that a little hard to believe as he moved in closer to confirm his suspicions – in the cool evening breeze the officer picked up the scent of alcohol coming off of the driver’s breath and noticed that his eyes were glossy and his pupils dilated. At around 7 p.m. on Sept. 2, police were dispatched to Galetta Side Road and Stonecrest Road for a two-vehicle accident. The driver told patrol officers that he was travelling west along Galetta at around 80 km/h when he suddenly lost control of his vehicle on the wet curve and began to slide sideways down the road. An eastbound driver attempted to swerve around the sliding vehicle but ended up slamming into it. Asking again if he had anything to drink, the driver repeated to the officer, “nothing to drink, but I had been smoking a

lot of cigarettes.” After explaining to the driver, for a second time, on how to provide a proper breath sample, the officer asked him to try again. As a result of registering a fail on the ASD, the driver was placed under arrest and transported to the Huntmar police station for further testing. There, the 30-year-old driver from Riverwood Drive registered a blood alcohol concentration of 104 mgs and was subsequently charged with over 80 and issued a 90-day driver’s licence suspension. HALF FARE NOT FAIR After paying – upfront – for half of their $120 cab fare, the two 29-year-old intoxicated men from Carp village set off for the bright lights of Carleton Place in search of some females companions. No sooner had they arrived in Carleton Place than the men had a change of heart and decided to head back home. As soon as the cab pulled up to the house both men jumped out and left without paying for the outstanding amount. When the taxi driver confronted the two men for the money, he was given the royal run-around with each man blaming the other for being responsible for paying the fare. The driver decided to call police and let them sort things out. Shortly after 5 a.m. on Aug. 28, police arrived on scene and quickly put an end to the blame game. Rather than face the potential of fraud charges, both men settled their difference and paid the taxi driver his fare share. Mischief Sept. 1 McGee Side Road, West Carleton: A complainant called po-

lice to report an ongoing problem with youth trespassing into the quarry – damaging and destroying property. Previously, the owners turned a blind eye to the youth swimming in the quarry; however, with the increased level of destruction and damage to their property, it was decided to put a stop to all youth activity on the property and to apply the Trespass to Property Act. Last evening, unidentified people trespassed into the quarry and set a 45-gallon drum filled with diesel fuel and oil, on fire. Added to the mix was a chair and a shovel. A plastic float, which was used to support a hose connection between a barge and the land, was melted by the intense heat from the fire. On Thursday evening, Aug. 26, unidentified people swam onto the barge and stole a mini-fridge and a set of speakers.

Aug. 29 Wescar Lane, West Carleton: A white 2004 Ford van was reported stolen sometime between 4 p.m. on Aug. 28 and 8 a.m. on Aug. 29. The van was last seen parked on Wescar Lane with its doors and keys secured. One distinguishing feature of this van is its new hood and a Ford logo on its hood and grill. Sept. 1 Limestone Road, West Carleton: A trolling motor was stolen from a complainant driveway sometime between July 17 and 23. The motor was not locked. The trolling motor was described as a black 5500 thrust Motor Guy and valued at $1,000.

Theft Aug. 27 Cardevco Road, West Carleton: Sometime between 8 p.m. Friday, Aug. 27 and 5 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 29, unidentified bandits cut their way into a compound secured, by a chain link fence, and broke into three locked commercial trucks. Using wheelbarrows, at least three bandits transported the stolen construction tools and equipment, valued at about $25,000, to their waiting vehicle. Aug. 29 Cottage Lane, Maclaren’s Landing: A complainant called the OPS call centre to report the theft of his orange and black STIHL gas powered leaf blower sometime between 3 p.m. on Aug. 27 and 9 a.m. on Aug. 29. The complainant reported that his leaf blower was left unlocked outside of his garage. No suspects were identified.

CARP FAIR

JESSICA CUNHA Jessica.cunha@metroland.com

Rock the Arts rocked the Ottawa Theatre Challenge this spring, taking first place for its puppet performance. The Kanata-based theatre company, which will appear at this year’s Carp Fair (Sept. 23-26), won the coveted rubber-chicken trophy, an award covered in rubber chickens modeled after each winning troupe. The winner keeps the prize for a year before handing it over to the next firstplace theatre company. “It was more than we ever could dream of,” said Sarah Argue, one of three members of Rock the Arts. “It was so funny. We forget how funny it is to see two puppets together. It was a lot of fun.” As part of world theatre day, the teams have 48 hours to write a four-minute scene based on three pieces of inspiration. “We had to bring in a published mystery title, a piece of evidence, as well as a reason,” said Robyn Pekarchuk, who grew up in Dunrobin. Agatha Christie’s novel, And Then There Were None, was the title given to the troupe, along with a Yellow Page’s ad for a female escort service and a reason of “sweet, sweet revenge.”

Pekarchuk and Argue, along with third member Adam Wilkinson, who lives in Oshawa, decided to do a mix of humans and puppets for their performance. They named their scene after Christie’s novel. Rosco, a puppet with shaggy hair and no eyes is rejected during auditions. He gets his sweet revenge by tricking the other cast members to quit. SWEET REVENGE Two puppets fight after one accuses the other of mixing with human female escorts and both walk out. “It’s all for fun,” said Pekarchuk. “The idea is you’re supposed to shmooze the judges; get them on your side. We heard stories of how other people did and we said we need to do something that’s going to keep within our realm. We’re a puppet company, we were the only puppet company, what could we do that shows who we are.” “We made the judges sock puppets,” said Argue, a Carp native. “They each got a sock puppet and they each got involved with our show. We held an audition (as part of the show) and we asked the judges to be in the audition with the sock puppets. “The judges, who are quite

Rock the Arts puppets will entertain at the Carp Fair with a mixture of real people and puppets. elite theatre people, they got into it. At the end of the show, they announced, ‘And the winners are’ and shone a spotlight on their sock puppets. It did make us memorable.” Pekarchuk and Argue had been performing together for nine years before forming Rock the Arts. “We were travelling in the

States with another theatre company,” said Argue. “We took a break from that company and just started writing our own shows. To be able to write, perform and build our own show – it’s amazing. It’s a dying art so people are really interested in the puppetry and we can bring it back. It’s just fun to put on our own art.” The duo, who proudly display

their puppets around their house when not performing, travel to schools and perform half hour skits that tie into the class curriculum. “We do not exist,” said Argue about being a puppeteer. “In a lot of our shows, we’ll come out after and we’ll talk to the kids, and once we start talking as a puppet, we disappear. The best question we’ve ever got, one kid puts up his hand and says, ‘But where does the voice come from?’ We don’t exist at all. It’s really quite funny.” Pekarchuk and Argue make their puppets in their basement, which they transformed into a creative workshop. It takes about eight hours to create a puppet from scratch. Many are made from the same form, but thanks to clothes, hair and different personalities, each looks different. They both said they get attached to the puppets they make. They auction off some of their creations for charity, like the Canadian Improve Games, but said it’s always hard to see one go. “We get attached,” said Argue. “They have their own personality, likes and dislikes.” For more information about Rock the Arts and their Carp Fair appearance, visit sites.google. com/site/ottawapuppets

Abbie is a beautiful little cat with lots of personality. The nine-month-old spayed female was left at the shelter with her sisters to find a new home. She is very affectionate and sweet and loves attention. Abbie is playful, curious and gentle – a cat that would be good with children. She tolerates other cats but prefers her own space. Abbie is at the Arnprior Pet Valu for viewing.

# 3779 Alyssa Alyssa is one of Abbie’s sisters. The ninemonth-old spayed female is a very easygoing cat. She likes the company of other cats and enjoys being around people. She is friendly and very affectionate. She likes to play but is also very snuggly. Like Abbie, Alyssa will be a good cat with children. Please consider welcoming this kitty into your home and heart. Supplies the shelter needs: Whiskas Meaty Selections dry cat food, dry kitten food, paper towels and bleach.

September 9 2010 - WEST CARLETON REVIEW

When vandals strike This past month when vandals destroyed a mailbox at an artist’s home in a quiet neighbourhood in West Carleton, the artist took this as a sign. A sign that a new mailbox was in order and it would have to be painted. A plain-Jane white mailbox would not do. So out came the paint. Jackson Pollock has always been a favourite in this artist’s mind, so this was the style she chose to use. Outside in the garden she threw paint, tossed paint and splattered paint. When she was finished the box was painted and so was the grass. The following day the mail box got three coats of clear coat for weather protection and out it went to the street. To view this mailbox visit the West Carleton Arts Society’s Expressions of Art show at the Carp Fairgrounds on the Thanksgiving weekend. The mailbox will then be on permanent display at the end of the artist’s driveway.

CARP’S IDOL FINALIST Carp’s Samantha Jotham performs during the 2010 Kiwanis Idol in Place D’Orleans, Ottawa, as one of the top 21 semi-finalists in the competition.

Thieves don’t know if they’re coming or going Ottawa police report an unusual crime on Herrick Road in West Carleton. Between Aug. 31 at 7:30 p.m. and Sept. 1 at 7 a.m., unidentified culprits attempted to break into the Valley Rent Rite store, lo-

cated on the outskirts of Arnprior. The culprits attempted to pull open a steel front door using a chain and a small vehicle. Police believe the culprits’ break-in attempt

was foiled by the fact that the door opened inwards rather than outwards. Anyone with information can call CrimeStoppers at 613-233-8477 (TIPS), or toll-free at 1-800-2228477.

The Quyon Combat Flyers ousted Fitzroy Harbour West Carleton Electric in the first round of the Greater Ottawa Fastball League playoffs, but it wasn’t easy. The secondplace Flyers are now embroiled in a best-of-three semi-final battle with thirdplace Carp I4C Victory, with each team winning once. The deciding game was scheduled for Quyon on Sept. 8. The Flyers evened the series Aug. 26 in Carp with a 30 win behind the pitching of Drew Hathway, who allowed only four hits.

Judging by Saturday’s turnout, Valley Gun and Hunting Show organizer Dave Arbour was expecting as many as 5,000 people to attend the two-day show in the Carp Arena to view the hunting items on about 200 tables. Above, Rheal Charlebois demonstrates one of his handcrafted bird calls to Ben Loewen. Above left, Mark Murphy, left, and Al Mills staff the Al’s Corner Store table. Located at the corner of old Highway 17 and Galetta Side Road, Al’s is having a hunting show and sale of its own this weekend (Sept. 10-12), starting at 4 p.m. Friday and running to 3 p.m. Sunday.
