Sterling ďŹ ghts back MPP mounts membership drive in effort to save seat DEREK DUNN derek.dunn@metroland.com

WARM UP WINTER Winterfest is a bright idea, and a sure way to keep you moving on Feb. 5 and 6. 4

It appears Norm Sterling is heeding the advice of at least one Conservative critic, opting to ďŹ ght back with actions instead of words. The Carleton-Mississippi Mills MPP is battling for his political life against rural activist Jack MacLaren, who is challenging Sterling for the riding’s Progressive Conservative nomination in the lead-up to next fall’s election. It would prove a humiliating end to a highly successful 33 years at Queen’s Park should he lose, but Sterling claims to have the numbers on his side, if not the support of some other Conservatives. MP GETS INVOLVED

TOP UP City council is expected to free up funds for groups that oppose the proposed Carp landďŹ ll expansion. 5

Sterling, a centrist, was given a dressing down in a Globe and Mail letter to the editor, penned by Lanark-Frontenac-Lennox and Addington Conservative MP Scott Reid. In the Dec. 6 letter, Reid claims Sterling neglects constituents who seek his help, unlike friend and fellow rural activist Lanark, Frontenac-Lennox and Addington PC MPP Randy Hillier.

The 30th annual bird count in West Carleton found more species than most years. The Dunrobin-Breckenridge Christmas Bird Count, held Jan. 2, enlisted 50 field observers to spend most of the day outdoors tallying species and numbers of birds within a 12-kilometre radius of the count centre in Dunrobin. Other volunteers contribute by noting the birds that come to their backyard feeders on the day of the count. This year 57 species where found. The average is 50, with the record of a few years back reaching 68. Organizer Bruce Di Labio of Carp, who has participated in bird counts for the last 40 years, was impressed with the turnout of volunteers and variety of species. “It went very well considering the weather conditions, the lack of snow, it went very well,” he said. “There were even a couple of record highs.” Among the record highs were the number of barred owls spotted, nine, and the number of great blue herons, at two. Among the late lingerers this year was a brown thrasher and a red winged blackbird. Di Labio said weather con-

ditions play a major factor in the count. If a blizzard occurs on the count day, many birds will be in hiding. If food availability is low, birds won’t be found either. He said another factor that proves a challenge to birders is the lack of back roads. It used to be, before many West Carleton roads were paved, that a birder could park along the side of a dirt road and hop out to start looking around. That aside, Di Labio remains a huge fan of the hobby, saying it’s a great way to meet wonderful people, and enjoy the outdoors. “Birding is a great challenge both mentally and physically,” he said. “You have to be very open-minded and prepared to think outside the box.” Di Labio doesn’t appear to have trouble thinking outside the box. Of the 350 species known in Eastern Ontario, he has spotted 328. But it is the black-capped chickadee that remains his favourite, even after all these years. “When I was about eight or nine I saw one at my cottage in Constance Bay,” he said. “From that moment I was hooked.” To read Di Labio’s blog and see more of his photos, log onto dilabiobirding.ca

A bird count surprise in Algonquin Park MICHAEL RUNTZ Nature’s Way

But there were birds encountered in the trees along the shore. Two Gray Jays quietly floated in while a Blackbacked Woodpecker chirped from atop a spindly Black Spruce. After a few minutes the jays vanished into a thick patch of spruce and began to noisily scold. Shortly after the ruckus began, a Northern Shrike, a songbird with the killer beak of a hawk, went flitting by. Although the seed crop is low this year in Algonquin (as it is in our area), occasionally a small flock of White-winged Crossbills or Common Redpolls livened the cloudy skies with their chatter. Equally infrequent were small groups of chickadees that seemed more intent on finding food than responding to my calls. I use two types of calls when looking for birds: pishing and squeaking. Pishing is done by repeatedly going “psshh, psshh, psshh.” Squeaking is done by loudly kissing the back of my fingers on one hand. The latter is one used to attract predatory birds such as hawks and owls. None responded that day.

However, I had a wonderful surprise when squeaking near a group of spruces. A head suddenly popped out from under one of those delightful smelling trees. The creature had a fox-like appearance, with pointed nose and ears. But it was small, and its reddish-brown pelage stopped short of its face, which was a contrasting gray. The Pine Marten briefly stood up on its hind legs before disappearing back under the tree. A few seconds passed then, unexpectedly, the tree-climbing weasel appeared right behind me. After discerning that I was not an injured meal, the Marten silently scampered away, its oversized hind feet easily keeping it atop the snow. I may not have seen a lot of birds that day (my list of 19 species totaled fewer than 100 birds), but as always I had a most memorable outing. When you wander through Christmas-card scenery and have a close encounter with a Pine Marten, you cannot feel unfulfilled! The Nature Number is 613-387-2503; email is mruntz@start.ca.

I finished off this past year with a Christmas Bird Count in Algonquin Park. The Algonquin count is the most physically demanding count that I do because most of my assigned area can be accessed only by foot. My route stretches about 11 kilometres and is normally covered on snowshoe. It is visually stunning for it takes me along the Madawaska River, which looks more like a large creek than a mighty river at this location. Between Cache Lake and Lake of Two Rivers, the Madawaska flows through a valley that stretches into a large meadow. Each year a section of water remains open and each year I faithfully scan it for a stray duck or heron. I also hope to see an exciting bird of prey, such as a Northern Hawk Owl, perched atop one of the spindly spruce decorating the meadow. This year produced the same results as all previous dozen counts – nary a bird was visible.

Councillor to press for snowplow surplus funds

DEREK DUNN derek.dunn@metroland.com

With the forecast showing as little snowfall as last year, city hall is storing up plenty of money in its snowplowing budget. It’s at the $8.5 million range. The question is what to do with that money. West Carleton and other rural wards cost the city less in terms of infrastructure maintenance. Spending on public transit, water and sewage, and other services are minimal. But the one area that proves costly is roads, both in snowplowing during winter and repairs during summer months. “Roads, roads, roads. You know how much we think about roads around

here,â€? said West Carleton-March Coun. Eli El-Chantiry. “It’s not church, but something we need every day.â€? El-Chantiry said he will press his 23 council colleagues to return some of the snowplowing surplus to the repairs budget, but he didn’t offer a timeline for when the issue will be debated. Last year’s stimulus funding went to so-called shovel-ready projects, meaning new construction work like the Hazeldean widening and the Terry Fox expansion. Not to ďŹ xing potholes in places that badly need it, including Bayview Drive and Kinburn Side Road, he said. No doubt some of the surplus will be redirected to the parks branch, which is facing $1.7-million deďŹ cit due to the longer grass-cutting season. However, council policy is that surpluses in any given area must go toward deďŹ cits in the same area ďŹ rst. In this case, money left over should go to the winter maintenance reserve. But with Mayor Jim Watson pushing hard for a maximum 2.5 per cent tax increase after upcoming budget

Nomination meeting will be key

LIBERALS RESPOND Meanwhile, the party’s grassroots supporters say Liberals are enjoying the spat and will use it against them both at the riding level and province-wide when the election race heats up in earnest after next summer. Some have complained that PC leader Tim Hudak should have spoken early and decisively to quell the dust-up. Others say local Liberals are scanning the riding in search of a star candidate who can paint

the riding red. However, there is very little Liberal presence to be found either in reality or on the web. A one-page website offers a phone number which goes to voicemail and a full inbox. ‘FIEFDOM’ One of the few Liberals available to speak about the PC feud is 2007 candidate Megan Cornell. She said the riding is not a “Conservative ďŹ efdomâ€? and berated both the media and pundits for taking an interest in “sideshowsâ€? rather than highlighting issues such as overcrowding at Kanata schools, support for the high tech industry and creating what she calls a “health hub.â€? As for the fear that a star candidate will step forward, those concerned that it may be West Carleton-March Councillor and Deputy Mayor Eli El-Chantiry need fret no more. El-Chantiry, a well known right-leaning Liberal supporter, said he is elated to have won his third race at the municipal level and doesn’t plan to leave for a higher level of ofďŹ ce. “Honestly, I’m so proud just to be reelected. I like what I’m doing,â€? he said. “Maybe one day, but not today.â€? Careful to preface his comments regarding the inďŹ ghting as coming from a resident and voter, not a politician, he said the internal debates are a sign of healthy democracy but also of a lack of discipline.

Chamber organizes west-end winter festival for Feb. 5 and 6 West Carleton celebrations spread throughout winter BLAIR EDWARDS blair.edwards@metroland.com

Watch out Winterlude. The National Capital Commission’s annual February event will face a little competition in the city’s west end this year. The Kanata Chamber of Commerce is looking to organize a winter festival for western Ottawa on Feb. 5 and 6 – the first week of Winterlude – in Kanata, West Carleton and Goulbourn. It is contacting businesses and community groups, encouraging them to hold both outdoor and indoor events during the west-end’s version of Winterlude. “If you want to get outside and enjoy winter you can do it on this side of town,” said Megan Cornell, president of the Kanata chamber. A west-end winter festival will only serve to enhance Winterlude, providing outdoor activities closer to home for west-end residents, she added. “The NCC has a mandate to expand Winterlude out of the downtown core so they might be interested in what we’re doing and supporting it.” The Kanata Chamber chose the Feb. 5 and 6 dates because that is when the

Kanata-Hazeldean Lions Club holds its annual winter events at the Lion Dick Brule Community Centre in Glen Cairn. Every year the Lions club offers sleigh rides, a pancake breakfast and arts and crafts activities one weekend. In West Carleton, the Galetta Community Association is holding its annual Winter Fun Day on Sunday, Feb. 6 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the outdoor rink. The Fitzroy Winter Carnival runs a week earlier, from Jan. 27 to 30 and the Pinto Valley Ranch’s Winter Fun Day is set for Jan. 30. Kinburn Winter Carnival organizers are leaning toward holding their event on the Feb. 12-13 weekend and Carp usually holds its Snow Days late in February. The chamber has contacted a number of community associations in Kanata and the response has been all positive, Cornell said. “We’ve got a number of community associations who’ve said yes,” she said. “Some community associations are just coming on board – it’s really in its infancy right now. The Kanata Lakes Community Association has agreed to participate and is planning to sell pastries at the Beaver Pond and offer skating (if the pond is frozen). “It sounds really exciting and what a great time to have an event like this,” said Gary Sealey, president of the Kanata Beaverbrook Community Asso-

ciation. “I’m looking forward to hearing more of the details and how we can help.” Some groups will need time to recruit volunteers before they will commit to joining the event. “We’re aware of it right now; we’re looking for people who are interested in running with the project,” said Margaret Kellaway, president of the Bridlewood Community Association. The Stittsville Village Association has opted out of organizing an event, as it is holding its annual winter festival during the end of February. Businesses are stepping forward to join in, she said, including Kundstadt Sports and the Brookstreet Hotel, which will offer ice skating on the rink behind the hotel. The Kanata Nordic Ski Club is holding its popular Pretzel Race on Feb. 6, and is looking to add an event on Feb. 5. The Kanata chamber is planning to ask the City of Ottawa to offer free public skating at its arenas in the west end, said Cornell. “We’d like to get some indoor events going as well, so it if it ends up being a miserable day the whole thing doesn’t fall apart.” The Bell Sensplex will have to opt out as it is already hosting two large hockey tournaments the weekend of Feb. 5 and 6.

Stittsville Coun. Shad Qadri said the money is needed because private citizens can’t afford to hire professionals on their own. Qadri, along with CarletonMississippi Mills MPP Norm Sterling, is opposed to the expansion, which proponents say is needed as an alternative to sending garbage to upstate New York. West Carleton-March Coun. Eli El-Chantiry said it isn’t a matter of landfill owner Waste Management and the province producing biased science. It’s about alleviating residents’ concerns. “It’s not true that this is money to fight the expansion,” El-Chantiry said. “The money was allocated to review the studies. The money is not to oppose it. It’s going to community groups that have concerns.” El-Chantiry has maintained all along that he doesn’t favour more landfills, but the alternatives are not successful enough at this time to displace them. He said it costs three times more to put waste through a gasification process than send it to New York. Until the technology and costs are made more realistic, the most he is willing to do is to pressure Waste Management to bend to reasonable community demands.

Budget first big challenge of 2011: Watson LAURA MUELLER laura.mueller@metroland.com

Ottawa city council will have a lot on its plate in 2011, from lingering issues surrounding the redevelopment of Lansdowne to concerns over police conduct. But before anything else gets underway at city hall in 2011, council will need to take care of the budget. That’s Mayor Jim Watson’s number one priority for the first year of his term at the helm. “It will set the stage for everything we’re going to do in the year,” he said. It won’t be easy – Watson was already successful in getting council to put a 2.5 per cent cap on budget increases for all departments, and the entire budget process must be wrapped up by March. One department has already begun to grapple with those limits – the Ottawa police service will have to trim more than $6 million in budget increases it had anticipated for 2011. Watson says that is the new fiscal reality at city hall. “It’s how you look at it,” he said. “All departments will get

more money to operate, they just won’t be getting as much as they asked for. Every department is going to have to live within that.” The new integrity measures Watson promised during the election – such as online posting of city councillors’ expenses and the appointment of an integrity commissioner – have been given the thumbs-up by council and will be implemented in the first half of the new year. Council and city staff will also set up a reserve fund dedicated to purchasing environmentally sensitive land – something council approved just before the holidays. Watson said he wanted to see that fund created because of the furor over building on land surrounding the Beaver Pond in Kanata. The new fund will provide money for the city to purchase sensitive lands when they come up for sale. Where does the boundary lie? That will be a question for the Ontario Municipal Board in 2011 as developers go to bat to get the city to expand its urban boundary. That’s the area that defines where new construction

can occur, and the developers want it expanded – an idea that was popular with former mayor Larry O’Brien. URBAN EXPANSION Last year, city council debated expanding the urban area by 840 hectares – much of it in the city’s west end. Instead, city council chose to promote intensified development while expanding the boundary by 220 hectares – a decision that didn’t sit will with developers, who will take their cases to the OMB this spring. If the boundary is expanded, it would likely put development pressures on the suburbs and some rural areas. At the same time, the city needs to take a look at how it approves development projects to reduce the red tape involved, Watson said. He said he will bring forward a series of motions aimed at simplifying the process, with a view to reducing the number of projects that end up at the OMB. He also wants to see incentives for developers to move construction forward. Across the city, people will be watching to see how the Ottawa

River Action Plan – a series of 17 projects aimed at reducing combined sewer overflows and improve stormwater management practices in the City of Ottawa – is implemented. City council approved the $252-million plan last February, and there is still about $173-million worth of work left to be done before 2013. The Carp Road landfill issue is really in the hands of the province at this point, but we’ll see what happens with a $75,000 fund the city has approved to allow the community to hire experts to make their case against expanding the dump. Ottawa residents can also look forward to a seniors’ summit in 2011, which Watson promised during his campaign. The event will bring together experts to discuss how the city can be better prepared to cope with its aging population from a variety of perspectives. TESTS IN 2011 While Watson wants to move a number of positive initiatives forward, he will also have to deal with a number of hefty challenges facing the city this year.

Inside this week’s West Carleton Review

Each week we feature animals from the Arnprior and District Humane Society that are up for adoption.

# 3637 Orson

# 3675 Jasper

Do you have a quiet home that would suit this shy kitty? Orson is a four-year-old neutered male who has been at the shelter since last January when he was found in White Lake. He is a quiet cat who can be shy until he knows you. Once he is comfortable with you he enjoys being petted and brushed and is quite affectionate. He gets along with other cats but would be best suited in a quiet adult home with no other pets. Orson is an indoor only cat.

This outgoing cat loves to explore. Jasper is a three-year-old neutered male who has been at the shelter since March when he was found here in town. He is an affectionate, friendly cat who is very curious. Jasper gets along well with other cats but can get a little rough when playing. He would be best suited in a home with older children and no dogs. Jasper will require regular grooming with his long hair.

Supplies the shelter needs: non-clumping cat litter, bleach and window cleaner. You can call the Arnprior and District Humane Society at 613-623-0916 between noon and 5 p.m Monday to Saturday or visit www.arnpriorhumanesociety.ca

All eyes will be on OCTranspo, as contract negotiations with the Amalgamated Transit Union begin. Looking to diffuse a tense relationship with the transit union and prevent a repeat of the 2008 transit strike, Watson has already reported positive initial meetings with the interim union head, Mike Aldrich. The Lansdowne Park redevelopment will continue to face obstacles as the courts deal with a legal challenge from the Friends of Lansdowne in April, but Watson said if the court decides in the city’s favour, we could see shovels in the ground before the end of 2011. The city’s light-rail plan will need to stay on track if it wants to hit its targets. “The public wants us to proceed on that file,” Watson said, reiterating that keeping costs in check will be high on his radar. Council will be dealing with these issues with 10 new faces around the table, but council has the mix of experience and fresh ideas needed to tackle these issues, said Watson. “We were elected to work in the spirit of co-operation,” he noted.

DVDs stolen from unlocked car A Grinch stole about 30 children’s DVDs out of an unlocked car in the Corkery area of West Carleton a week before Christmas. The Ottawa Police Service reports that the theft, which happened on Wildmeadow Circle off the Richardson Side Road sometime between 3 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 18 and 1 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 19, was called in on Christmas Eve. The complainant said the thief entered his unlocked vehicle and stole the DVDs, one of which was recovered Boxing Day along the side of Wildmeadow Circle by a neighbour. It was one of 24 general calls responded to by patrol officers in the West Carleton area from Dec. 24 to 31. In addition to the calls for service, patrol officers also enforced highway traffic laws, responded to false 9-1-1 and alarm calls, and assisted the Ottawa fire, paramedics and bylaw services.

police to report a suspicious incident after he happened upon a burnt-out vehicle on Spruce Ridge Road in the Corkery area at around 4:30 a.m. The blaze had destroyed the car by the time emergency services arrived and only a discernible rear licence plate remained. A record search of the licence plate number revealed the car had been reported

stolen from an Orleans residence earlier that morning. In the final deer collision count for 2010, West Carleton reported six deer-related collisions in the final week of the year, while Rideau-Goulbourn reported three. The score now stands at 54 to 35 in favor of Rideau-Goulbourn.

Editorial

Winter has its benefits Forget the fact that there is a potential risk of hypothermia, heart attacks, or death, hundreds of intrepid dippers have braved the winter weather to take a dip in frigid waters in January for a number of causes. Ottawa’s Polar Bear Club held its third annual fundraising event for the President’s Choice Children’s Charity on January 1. Supervising the event was Steve Stewart, also known as Speedo Steve. An experienced dipper, Stewart was a member of the original club, which was started by the Rideau-Osgoode Karate Club. He resurrected the Polar Bear Club after the tradition was discontinued years ago on the Rideau River. The number of people who swear by polar dipping say there are many therapeutic

qualities. The benefits can be very great — it can stimulate mental processes, produce hormones that make the body able to cope with physical stresses and can increase the level of mental awareness and a feeling of well-being. It can also release stress, remove aches and pains, increase vitality and keep skin looking younger. Many even treat their asthma or arthritis with cold water swimming. Benefits of polar dipping outweigh the risk factors, so they say. Aside from shocking the circulatory system it can produce a warm afterglow and a transcendental state that one needs to experience to fully understand. It is a spiritually uplifting ritual that can surpass any normal level of comprehen-

sion and it can reduce wrinkles. Drastic temperature changes and shivering skin actually exercise shallow sub-cutaneous muscles that firm the skin. If you become a regular dipper, you become part of history rooted in the European tradition of saunas and coldwater swimming. Besides all that, jumping in near-freezing water wearing little more than a pair of shorts takes a brave soul. Participants say it builds a sense of camaraderie and valued friendships that can last a lifetime and it helps mentally by shortening the winter season and lifts bouts of depression. It may be safer than walking on hot coals, but many may opt for the less adventurous route and just donate to a worthy cause.

The penny drops, and who can really be sorry? Serious consideration is being given to eliminating the Canadian penny. In the early reaction to a Senate committee’s recommendation to this effect, the usual alarm has been expressed but most people seem relieved not to have to deal with the worthless little things any more. That’s a realistic way of looking at it. The year 2011 might be the first one without a pennies and what does it matter? We have long since passed the day when nostalgia about the penny was in any way justified. Sure, your parents or grandparents might be able to tell you about actually purchasing something with a penny —usually one solitary piece of a type of candy found in a barrel — but you stopped paying attention long ago. Maybe when you weren’t paying attention to your father’s penny story, you were thinking about telling your own children about the days when you could buy something with a nickel. Or a dime. When were those days, anyway? What would we be losing if the penny disappears? A little brown coin that doesn’t buy anything. It has a picture of the Queen on one side and a picture of a maple leaf on the other side. Nice, and

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town quite Canadian. but there is no shortage of pictures of the Queen or maple leaves. In the old days, kids could gamble with pennies, tossing them to see who could land one closest to the wall. That was fun, and we could do that again, except what would we win? Right: more pennies. Until a few years ago, we could save up those pennies and put them into children’s UNICEF boxes on Halloween night, but that laudable practice was eliminated, apparently for administrative reasons. Even UNICEF found the pennies more trouble than they were worth. Face it: these days, the penny is something that gathers dust on your dresser while you try to remember to roll it up and take it to the bank or throw it into one of those supermarket machines in

order to trade it in for real money. Leaving us with the penny, an annoyance for consumers, an inconvenience for merchants, an idea whose time has come and went. Of course, when change is coming vigilance is called for, especially when it’s the change that is changing. So there will no shortage of watchdogs on the alert for stores and manufacturers rounding up instead of down, when they can no longer charge $2.98 and must choose between $2.95 and $3.00. Most of us will take it in stride, especially men, whose stride will improve with fewer coins in their pockets. For a better stride, an extra two cents now and then seems a small price to pay. Mind you, some of the strategic challenges of shopping will disappear. Not mentioning any names, but I know of a guy who always carried three pennies among his coins when he visited the stores, the object being to get rid of those three pennies. If something cost $1.83, he would offer the three pennies. If it was $1.81, he would offer two. The theory was that in this way, he would gradually eliminate his weighty stash of pennies. He could have carried four pennies, for

the sake of the $1.84 purchases, but that seemed too easy, less sporting. Carrying only three pennies added a thrilling element of uncertainty to the outing. It was a brilliant strategy, and not even remotely successful. The pennies continued to pile up on the dresser, even as the guy caused holdup after holdup in supermarket lines trying to locate one, two, or three, but not four when he needed them. The people in those lineups, not to mention the cashiers, will be delighted to see the penny go. Meanwhile, the guy is noticing that the nickels and dimes are starting to pile up on the dresser.

great cause. When I met with Perry Rowe, executive director of the Salvation Army, he mentioned that donations have been lower than expected this year and that these books will definitely make a big difference to their families in need waiting for help this Christmas. No matter how small your contribution, little by little we can do something great big and wonderful together. The Education Station along with Usborne Books at Home gives out three main prizes, one for Overall Participant (three siblings working together), one to the Top Reader (14 hours, 20 minutes this year) and one for Top Sponsorship Collector ($729 collected by herself).

To the editor: Every year the Education Station, a local children’s educational bookstore, runs an Usborne Books fundraiser or reada-thon in the West Carleton and Ottawa area communities to raise funds that provide free books to children in the area. This year it raised $1934.15 in new Usborne books for the Salvation Army’s Toy Mountain campaign. This was, of course, thanks to the support and generosity throughout the West Carleton, Carp, Almonte, Carleton Place, Stittsville, Arnprior and Ottawa areas and all the families who participated. Many thanks to all involved this year and previous years for all their hard work, good reading and dedication to a

They will each receive an Usborne Art or Drawing Pack - complete with instruction book and supplies valued at $24.95. In addition to these prizes is a 10-10-10 Challenge where you need to have at least 10 people sponsor the child for $10 or more so the child will receive a bonus $10 gift certificate for free books from the Education Station. We gave away nine gift certificates this year. The readers participating in an Usborne Read-a-Thon also receive 50 per cent of the money they have raised back in free books for themselves. The other 50 per cent plus a bonus eight per cent in free books from Usborne goes to Toy Mountain this year. A very special thank you goes out to all the children who did so much reading and sponsorship gathering - and then decided to give away some and in a few cases all of their own free books that they earned to Toy Mountain and other family and friends they knew.

The Town of Mississippi Mills’ popular line dancing classes will be expanded to Pakenham in the new year. The first series of classes have just wrapped up for the season, and to celebrate, instructor Hyacinth Chatterton of Arnprior decided to bring some high-steppin’ talent into the Almonte General Hospital (AGH) and Fairview Manor. “Let’s spread some cheer,” said Chatterton after her class concert in the hospital’s Rosamond wing at the AGH Dec. 15. Later that same evening, the class returned to entertain the residents of the Fairview Manor. The impetus for teaching a line-dancing class came about through a chance conversation with Calvin Murphy, the town’s recreation co-ordinator. “You know, line dancing has not been offered here for a while,” she told Murphy. So, the process began to set up classes for line-dancing in Almonte. While Chatterton wanted to maintain the dance styles’ country and western roots, she also wanted to emphasize that it

had moved on from beyond the old twangy stuff. “When we had our ads going in August, I emphasized that we used the modern stuff, Michael Buble, the Bee Gees, Latin music” as well as country and western. “Line dancing has spread beyond country.” About 50 people showed up for the first class back in October, but classes since then have averaged about 25 people per session. “I’m very impressed with how the beginners are coming along,” said Chatterton. The classes will now be offered in Pakenham, starting next month. “We hope we’ll be able to spread line dancing around,” she said. The new classes for the line dancing classes will be offered in the upper hall of the Stewart Community Centre in Pakenham, 112 MacFarlane St., on Thursdays from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m., for nine weeks starting on Jan. 13. For more details, call Chatterton at 613-623-5606. Interested dancers can also register in person at the Almonte community centre Jan. 7 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in the upper hall.

An online survey of baby boomers across Canada conducted by the Alzheimer Society reveals a worrying lack of awareness about Alzheimer’s disease. Survey results show that an astonishing 23 per cent of boomers can’t name any of the early signs of Alzheimer’s disease, even though their risk doubles every five years after age 65. Of those surveyed, 50 per cent identified memory loss as a key

West Carleton Atom C Warriors players Brian Dorman and Darian Kearley with their best defensive pairing award at the Bell Capital Cup.

Warrior pair earns award challenge. Coach Wayne Wilson said the team, which finished at 1-1-1, had a great time and “I am really proud of them.” He said pin trading was one of the highlights of the tournament for his players. The Warriors blanked

the West End Rockets 2-0 in their first game Dec. 30, before being shellacked by the Smiths Falls Bears the next day. However, they rebounded later that afternoon to tie the Gloucester Cougars 2-2. Forward Noah Rhoden led West Carleton with two goals and two assists.

Two West Carleton Atom C Warriors players won first place for the best defensive pairing at a Bell Capital Cup hockey tournament skills competition. Goalie Brian Dorman and defenceman Darian Kearley captured the award in the power-play

The West Carleton Warriors Major Peewee Rep B team gave Finland players pairs of the red Canadian Olympic mittens as a keepsake gift at the Bell Capital Cup tournament. The Warriors were matched against the Karhu Kissat Cats from Helsinki, Finland, in their first game at the tournament Dec. 30. West Carleton scored two third-period goals to win 2-1. Warriors coach Sean Ovington said the Finnish players and bench staff thoroughly enjoyed the gift of Olympic mittens. It helped take the pain off giving up two late goals, he chuckled. In their second game Dec. 31, the Warriors were blanked 3-0 by Teiskaming Shores Puckhounds. They wrapped up the tournament with a 3-2 loss to Niagara Falls Canucks New Year’s day morning. Joey Watters, Michael Sullivan, Ryan Ovington and Alexander Zuana scored the Warriors’ goals. Mitchell Gardiner had two assists. Mitchell Lothian and Merrik Rodier shared goaltending duties.

Our conscience makes us the most trusted source of community news and information.

We are Ottawa’s only publisher that exclusively prints its newspapers on 100% recycled stock. Compared to regular virgin newsprint, one tonne of recycled newsprint: saves 17 trees, saves enough energy to power an average home for 6 months, eliminates 3 cubic metres of landfill material, saves 31,780 litres of water, creates 75% less air pollution, takes 43% less energy to produce, creates 35% less water pollution. Metroland also subsidizes the Blue Box program in Ontario with in-kind advertising to promote waste diversion. We’re making a difference!
