Sheriff of Kinburn

Cap gun collector a throwback to the Wild West BY HARRY GALLON West Carleton Review

There is a new sheriff in town and his name is Mike Lebrun. In reality, Lebrun is the postmaster of the Kinburn post office, but in spirit, he is a character straight out of the Wild West. “The Wild West was a much simpler time,” said Lebrun, who was born and raised in Arnprior, and has been a resident of Kinburn since 1979. “It wasn’t hard to tell the good guys from the bad guys. If I lived in that time, I would have liked to have been the sheriff: I like people to be accountable. I certainly wouldn’t have been the gunslinger.” Gunslinger, no, but a man in possession of more than 250 vintage cap guns, a humdinger, you could say, of a unique and well-loved collection. “I didn’t appreciate the craftsmanship of cap guns as a kid,” he said.

“They are not like toys now: they were made to last. The quality of materials and the workmanship that went into them is amazing. They were made with pride, and it shows.” Lebrun, 57, grew up watching the western television shows of the day – The Roy Rogers Show, Rawhide, Hopalong Cassidy - and took more from them than just entertainment. “The dialogue and storylines always had a good moral,” he said. “They were romanticized versions of the old cowboy code, but I learned that if you went outside that code, there would be consequences.” Lebrun recalls buying a Leslie-Henry cap gun from Mr. Slaughter’s Barbershop and Hobby Store in Arnprior as a boy. “They provided a lot of entertainment for a relatively small price,” he said.

ARTS OF PLAY Intermediate students at Huntley Centennial Public School in Carp hosted an Arts of Play coffeehouse last Wednesday evening in support of the Right to Play program. The evening featured entertainment from students, art displays, dance, drama and music. A drum circle with traditional African rhythms kicked off the night of entertainment.

Family’s misfortunes mount Cottage destroyed by fire in MacLaren’s Landing

If tragedies occur in threes, then a family with strong West Carleton roots has filled its quota. The Spence family cottage, one of the oldest in MacLaren’s Landing, dating back to 1932, will have to be razed after fire consumed both floors Sunday afternoon. The summer residence at 169 Cottage Lane was owned by Vern Spence. His daughter-in-law Trish and three young children were staying there. No one was hurt in the fire. Even the family dog was rescued; next door neighbour Glenn Byrne – who orga-

nizes the annual car show for prostate cancer research on the Carp fairgrounds – rescued the big poodle-like dog. However, last year Trish lost her father. Soon after that it was her husband, David, who died in a snowmobile accident near their Kars home (close to Manotick). Sandy Byrne, Glenn’s wife, said the fire may have started from a toy with batteries. But Ottawa Fire Services are investigating rechargeable batteries left in the front room as the possible cause. Either way, Byrne said it could have been much worse. “Glen and our son Jason were hosing down the side

of our shed before the fire department came. The smoke was just incredible,” she said. “Thank God there was no wind at the time of the fire. If it had been as bad as it was earlier in the weekend, there’s no telling how many cottages would have gone.” Fire services spokesman Marc Messier said 50 firefighters and 17 emergency vehicles were on hand for 30 minutes before the blaze was brought under control at 2:30 p.m. “When firefighters arrived, heavy black smoke was coming from around the chimney, roof and windows,” Messier said.

The annual Fitzroy-over-theCarp cross country race, sponsored by the Arnprior Optimist Club, was held on Friday, May 20, at Fitzroy Provincial Park. It was a sunny day down at the provincial park beach, near the mouth of the Carp River. Dozens of students, teachers and parents gathered for fun and exercise. “I like that it’s just for having fun,” said Jaydon Nicholas. “It’s about seeing what time you get and trying a lot.” Walter Zadow placed first for the Junior Girls with McNab following in second and John XX111 coming in third.

Learning from 100 years ago Women’s group takes a journey back in time to 1911 The Canadian Federation of University of Women/Kanata has organized an historical tour of five one-room schoolhouses in Kanata and West Carleton, set during the early 1900s. The Pioneer School Days interactive tour will run on Sunday, May 29, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Try Maypole dancing and English Country Dancing, which were practiced as a part of the celebration of the coronation of King George V. Sing along with early Canadian folk songs. Of course, you must attend to mathematics with oral arithmetic and the times tables and spell words like “monarch” and “Buckingham Palace”. School is fun too with pioneer crafts and outdoor games. Artisans will demonstrate some old-fashioned skills. Most children walked to school but you can climb into a buggy or cutter, or peek out from cutouts of children in pioneer garb and have your pictures taken at one location. Treat yourself to old-fashioned cookies, candy and preserves for sale at the Bake Table at S.S. No. 1 Huntley (now The Cheshire Cat Pub). Former students and teachers of one-room schoolhouses shall delight with their stories, and will answer questions. Grade 3 students, who study pioneering, will find this educational event particularly interesting, as will local historians. It also complements the grades 4 to 8 heritage studies. Based in Kanata, Dunrobin and Carp, Pioneer School Days is laced not only with history – from heritage buildings to displays of old text books, photographs and other memorabilia – but also with loads of fun that can be shared as a family. It’s unique and the first in Ottawa. Tickets are limited, so buy your tickets early to avoid disappointment. The tour is very special because proceeds support annual scholarships to local high school graduates on their way to universities and to Algonquin College. Tickets are $10 cash or cheque (three and under, free) and are available at the following locations across Ottawa: Art Mad,1300 Main St., Stittsville; Dunrobin Village Meat Co. Ltd., 2808 Dunrobin

The Kinburn Community Association is ready for a busy summer ahead, starting with the ever-popular tractor pull. The 16th annual Tractor Pull, to be held Thursday, June 16, will again be held on the spacious grounds of the Antrim Flea Market. This is one event where spectators and participants get to feel the rural lifestyle in action. The tradition and goodwill, the smoke in the air, the vintage and modern machines roaring to life, the food and small talk – all are great fun for young and old alike. “I love the people and the tractors,” organizer Jayne Coady said. “I think it’s such a neat way to bring people together.” Coady said it is especially fun for kids, who get to go up close to the machines, see how they are hooked up to the box-like weight and dragged down the dirt track. They can wander around the pits, maybe even climb aboard one – if they are lucky. The day is all about boys and their toys, but it’s also about raising funds for the community association. Over the years the tractor pull has pulled in $35,000 for the association. Coady credits people such as flea market owners Terry and Wendy Hooper for donating their time and resources to mak-

ing Kinburn and area a better place. “The location gives us lots more room. We outgrew the Kinburn Community Centre,” Coady said of the change a few years back. “They are really awesome people to give back to the community. It’s wonderful to be able to work with them.” However, if that were the only fundraiser for the year in support of the community association, which gets a $100,000 grant from the city every year, the volunteer organization’s obligation to raise $30,000 annually would be a failure.

vides all the corn, which is free for the enjoying. Other items will be for sale to raise more funds for the village. Then comes what has already turned into the event of the year in Kinburn. The second annual Swampfest will welcome back some great entertainment on Saturday, Aug. 27, including Gail Gavan, Cindy Thompson and Darlene Thibault. Other acts are also in the works. An exciting change for this year includes a second stage for performers.

SWAMPFEST While last year’s inaugural Swampfest left organizers with a few lessons to learn in order to attract larger numbers, there was plenty of positive feedback from those who did attend that let them know they are on the right track. But the day before the music festival and accompanying activities begin, the annual get-together for area families begins to boil over. The corn boil takes place Aug. 26 at the community centre for all 927 people in the village, along with plenty more from nearby. “There’s not much room for growth in the village,” Coady said, laughing. “So it’s the quality of the people, not the quantity.” Hudson’s farm up Panmure Road pro-

“Come out for a good time, admission is free,” Coady said. “The theme this year is ‘A wrap up to summer’.” Organizers attempted to not have Swampfest coincide with other major activities in the region, so there should be time on the side of residents in West Carleton and elsewhere to spend time on the grass listening to great local musicians or inside enjoying food and activities.

The power of music Gail Gavan performs at Power Show EMILY PEARCE City of Ottawa

Ottawa Valley entertainment is at its best when Gail Gavan has a microphone in her hand. No stranger to the area, the singer/songwriter was born and raised in Quyon, Quebec and has plenty of West Carleton fans. Gavan will head to Cumberland Heritage Village Museum on Sunday, May 29 to perform at the 35th anniversary of the Heritage Power and Country Festival. Gavan has had an exciting year including winning Entertainer of the Year at the West Quebec Hall of Fame Awards. To kick off another busy summer, the cowgirl promises to bring singing, dancing and lots of fun! She is also scheduled to perform at the best little fair in Canada, the 148th Carp Fair, from Sept. 22 to 25. Kellie Sarazin, Power Show entertainment director, said Gavan is a perfect fit for the event. “She has her roots here; she’s ingrained in our community and sings about things we can relate to,” Sarazin said. Be ready for anything as it will be an exciting concert filled with square-dancing and sing-a-longs. “Her shows are very interactive and she’s planning to really engage the audience,” Sarazin said. The country crooner’s ability to shine is clear to Lois Siegel of Siegel Entertainment. Siegel says Gavan is a real powerhouse: “She engages the audience and knows how to work with other musicians to make the presentation lively and exciting.” Gavan continues to represent the valley through performances and new music despite her hectic schedule. A full-time teacher and mother to son,

GAIL GAVAN Connor, it’s a wonder she has time to open for Country greats such as Lorrie Morgan, Gene Watson and Tim McGraw. May 28 and 29 liven up your weekend with some Ottawa Valley entertainment done right. Admission to the Heritage Power and Country Festival is $25 per family, $12 for adults, and $10 for seniors and students. The museum, located at 2940 Old Montreal Rd., will be open Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more visit cumberlandmuseum@ottawa.ca.

Teen grabbed on John Shaw CONST. PETER JEON Ottawa Police Service

A 16-year-old female called police to report a suspicious incident that occurred at around 10 p.m. on Saturday, May 14. The female said while she was out walking alone along John Shaw Road she was approached by a lone male driver who offered to give her a ride. When she refused the male extended his arm out of the car and offered to shake her hand. Upon taking up his hand the female felt him trying to pull her towards his car but managed to break free of the grasp. The driver was described as a 20-yearold Arabic male with a very short buzz cut dark hair and goes by the name of Ahmed. At the time, he was wearing a blue and white striped Polo shirt. The vehicle was described as a gold coloured 4-door car. THEFT From Vances Side Road, Baskin’s Beach an outboard motor was reported stolen from the Port of Call Marina sometime between 5 p.m. on Thursday, May 12 and 8 a.m. on Friday, May 13. The unidentified culprit stole a black Mercury 9.9-hp ML outboard motor that was valued at about $2,000. WILDLIFE May 18: Pineridge Road, March Ru-

ral—A complainant called police on Wednesday evening to report a black bear wandering around her neighbourhood. The complainant stated that the young bear was sitting in front of her patio door eating the bird feed. Here are a few black bear safety tips for rural homeowners: 1. always use black bear-resistant garbage containers and only place your garbage cans outdoors on the morning of a scheduled pickup; 2. take in bird feeders and never feed your pets outdoors; 3. do not leave out non-food bear attractants such as scented candles and suntan lotions around your property; and 4. Know what to do if you encounter a black bear near your home. Do not approach the bear and make sure you are not standing between the bear and its escape route. Make the bear aware of your presence by talking loudly or clapping. ALL’S QUIET ON WESTERN FRONT Week 20 and phew, there is nothing to report in the way of deer collisions. It is definitely a nice little reprieve, just in time for Victoria Day weekend. The total score still stands at 55 to 21 in favor of Rideau-Goulbourn. Patrol Officers in the West Carleton area responded to 48 general calls for service from the public for the reporting period of May 13 to 19.

plan fails to take into account the Liberals clean energy benefit program. “Basically what he’s telling Ontario families is that their bills are going to go up by two per cent, because we are already taking 10 per cent off hydro bills.� The clean energy benefit, which was enacted in January, takes 10 per cent off of Ontario hydro bills after taxes have been applied. The HST increased the cost of electricity by eight per cent. McLeod said the province can’t keep supplementing the high cost of McGuinty’s green energy “experiments.� Naqvi also questioned Hudak’s pledge to remove the debt retirement charge from electricity bills across the province. Put in place in 1998 by the government of former PC premier Mike Harris, the charge is levied to repay debts accumulated by the former Ontario Hydro. “Either he’s going to shift that on to the overall provincial debt, or the only other way I see it, he’s going to close schools and hospitals to find that money,� Naqvi said. The announcement comes as the opposition begins to position itself for the fall election, set to take place on Oct. 6. Earlier last week, Hudak announced Ottawa Citizen columnist Randall Denley would be seeking the party nomination in Ottawa West-Nepean, one of several high-profile candidates identified across the

s temperatures rise, many of us cool off by jumping in the water or going for a boat ride. Whether you dive into a pool, swim at the beach or cottage, or simply take a leisurely boat ride, it is important to keep water safety in mind. Safe Boating Week is May 21-29 and typically announces the start of the boating season. Drinking and boating is just as deadly as drinking and driving. According to the Ministry of Transportation, .05 blood alcohol concentration is enough to have a licence suspended. There is always a drowning risk around

water, but children are especially vulnerable. The risk increases in spring as ponds, lakes and rivers begin to thaw and oftentimes the flow is at its peak. Even though the outside air temperature is rising quickly, it gives a false sense of warmth. The water temperature is still dangerously cold. Children are curious creatures. They are often drawn to fast-flowing water, but do not understand the dangers that are close at hand. Adult supervision is of utmost importance, and it’s essential no matter how well your child swims. For children under the age of

five, drowning is the second leading cause of accidental death. Two-thirds of these drownings happen to those who never intended to get wet in the first place, but they are often drawn to the brink of potential disaster. Unattended children are especially at risk of drowning because they are mobile and very curious. You can plan to reduce the risks of drowning during the months ahead. Stay within arm’s reach of your child at all times in and around the water. Enroll your children in swimming lessons and learn CPR and first aid. Always use a per-

Opinion sonal floatation device, such as a life jacket, when you are in a boat or a watercraft. Be vigilant – drowning occurs most commonly in swimming pools, just when parents turn their backs for a split second. Install four-sided fencing around all pools, measuring at least 1.5 metres high and include a selflatching and self-closing gate. Raising the awareness of water safety and drowning prevention for parents, caregivers, children and youth is everyone’s responsibility. Be safe. Be water smart.

Why you don’t throw your column into the ring My former Ottawa Citizen colleague Randall Denley has decided to abandon his newspaper column at least temporarily and run for the Conservatives in the next Ontario election. His opponent, the Liberal incumbent Bob Chiarelli, will be all but drooling as he sees a chance at revenge for the nasty things Denley has written about him over the years, beginning when Chiarelli was mayor of Ottawa. That’s one of the differences between columning and politics. In politics, your opponents can get revenge. In journalism, your opponents can issue a denial, or write a letter to the editor, both of which are less than satisfying. There are other differences, which help to explain why most columnists choose to remain columnists rather than enter politics: – A columnist does not have to smile all the time, or ever. – A columnist does not have to attend ribbon-cuttings and banquets in honour of causes he has never heard of. – A columnist finishes the day’s column and goes home. A politician goes on to the next event. – A columnist rarely turns on the TV to find someone denouncing him on the news. – When a columnist is not interested

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town in the burning issue of the day, he writes about something else, such as cats. When a politician is not interested in the burning issue of the day, he has to be interested in the burning issue of the day anyway. – A columnist does not have to pose wearing silly hats. – A politician’s enemies scour his previous speeches for embarrassing utterances or signs of flip-flop. A columnist’s previous utterances are safely wrapping fish. – Unless he chooses to write about them, nobody knows anything about a columnist’s family, hobbies or religious views. For a politician, all those things are on public display. – In a good newspaper, a columnist can publicly disagree with the policies of his bosses. Try that in any party caucus. – A columnist is allowed to have a sense

of humour. Politicians who make jokes are immediately denounced by representatives of interest groups who are offended. There are, to be sure, some similarities in the two occupations. A columnist can dust off an old column on a slow day, and a politician can trot out an old speech. A politician can invent and demolish straw men. So can a columnist. Both politician and columnist develop the art of feigned outrage. Denley said an honourable thing in announcing his candidacy: “As a newspaper columnist you can say, ‘Other people should do this, other people should do that.’ You can’t really do anything yourself. If you’re going to make a difference, you have to get involved in the process.” Some columnists would disagree, saying that they are contributing to the process by influencing public opinion. But it is true that it takes far more courage to become actively involved than it does to stand on the sidelines making pungent comments. Other columnists have made the decision Denley has made. It worked for some of them. Christy Clark once wrote a weekly column in Vancouver and is now premier of British Columbia. On the other hand, Michael Valpy, a Toronto Globe

and Mail political writer, ran unsuccessfully for the NDP in 2000 and returned to the paper where he does not write about politics. Then there is Garth Turner, a business columnist for the Toronto Sun who sat for many years as a Conservative member of Parliament but was tossed from the caucus in 2006 for being too independent, a trait columnists have. Then he moved to the Liberals and was defeated. Another guy who used to write a column: Michael Ignatieff. And that leads to the biggest difference between the politician and the columnist: When the readers don’t like a columnist on election day, he’s still a columnist the next day. That’s why most columnists stay put, and are grateful to do so.

The timing of the decrease in pledges is unfortunate as the transportation service for seniors and the disabled is faced with increased costs, particularly with rising gas prices.

The backyard diaries Part II. Last week we ended on a cliffhanger on my morning property walk. We got as far as the cliff, the highest point of our land. From there the trail leads down a narrow winding ravine embraced by elderberries and honeysuckles. Michael Runtz Near the bottom on the left is a tumble of boulders that fell from Nature’s Way the newly forming cliff during the last geological upheaval. Here at Granite Falls (named for the tumble of giant boulders), I regularly see porcupines, once fighting. Here I always squeak on my fingers for predators as once a coyote came in to my calls. Past the ravine the trail traverses a damp area where Foamflowers bloom in profusion. These beauties have remarkable seed dispersal. When a raindrop hits a lip projecting from the bottom of the seed capsule, it gets depressed and just like a candy in a Pez dispenser, releases a seed from the capsule. When the lip springs back up, like a diving board it throws the seed away from the plant! Each time a raindrop strikes, it releases a seed and then sends it on its journey. On an outing a week ago, I noticed something moving on a dead white pine limb. It was a red squirrel walking along a branch. It shoved its head into an old woodpecker hole in the tree’s trunk and when it pulled out and turned around, a load of wood chips stuck out of its mouth.

The squirrel walked to the end of the branch, put its head over the side, and dropped the load. This was repeated time and time again. The squirrel worked deeper into the hole until only its back feet were visible. Enlarged nipples revealed the squirrel to be a female, and she was excavating a nest chamber for her soon-to-arrive litter! From the squirrel tree, the trail leads beside a rock escarpment to a split. The left branch leads to another fork where its left branch takes you to a cliff ledge overlooking a narrow bay, and its right branch, to a pine woods where owls roost (hence its name, Owl Woods). The first right fork leads up a shallow wooded slope to the trail that leads from the house to the cliff top. If this first bit of trail had lots of birds, I usually take it back to the house. Otherwise I go left to either Owl Woods or Beaver Lodge View. Jays were screaming at something in Owl Woods today, so I chose that route. Expecting to see a Rat Snake being mobbed (one six feet long often climbs those pines), I was surprised to see a long barred tail bobbing from behind a tree. I moved closer and there was a Cooper’s Hawk sitting on a stump plucking something. Unfortunately it saw noticed me and flew off with something in its talons. At the stump I found a scattering of reddish fur and a short reddish tail. Apparently a young red squirrel had a very short life! The Nature Number is 613-387-2503; email is mruntz@start.ca.

You will learn different styles of photography and be amazed by how much your technique can improve by learning simple tips and tricks from a pro! Pinhey’s Point is the ideal location for such an event as it is one of Ottawa’s hidden gems. The site boasts several picturesque landmarks which include: historic ruins, an Anglican church dating from 1827 with original grave

yard, rolling green hills, and lush forested areas; all of which is stationed on the bank of the Ottawa River. “Pinhey’s Point offers photographers a few very different areas to capture.

The original Georgian style house, turned heritage museum, is the crown jewel of the site. Workshop participants will be invited to tour the museum, one of the Ottawa Valley’s oldest remaining stone homes.

Light rail costs still in flux LAURA MUELLER laura.mueller@metroland.com

Now that efforts have been made to speed up the process of getting light-rail transit in Ottawa, the big test for the project will be in July when city councillors will hear an updated estimate on the costs. City staff said the LRT system could be completed by the spring of 2018, a full year earlier than expected. But the heavy lifting will come in July, when council will be faced with making a decision about whether the project is still affordable, the city’s finance and economic development committee heard on May 12. Along with speeding up the process, staff said the city could save money on the project by changing the way it works with the contractor to build the system. Instead of city staff designing the system an then asking contractors to bid on how much it would cost to construct it, the new idea would be to have qualified contractors bid to do the design work as well as the construction and maintenance of the system. That method would cut down on costs, but it wouldn’t necessarily bring the project in under the original estimate of $2.1 billion. The cost could rise higher than that figure, especially because that estimate was

made in 2009 and doesn’t account for inflation. But the estimated cost would be even higher if city stuck with its original procurement plan, said John Jensen, the rail implementation program manager for the City of Ottawa. While city staff asked for councillors’ approval to begin the process of acquiring property needed to build the line – and potentially pursuing expropriation – Jensen assured councillors that no expropriations would be finalized until council makes a decision on the budget and procurement for the project in July. “This is essential to help property owners move forward and for risk and cost control,” Jensen said. Jensen said no residential properties will be affected, although a city report contains more careful wording: “…the city does not anticipate that any residential properties need to be acquired.” Several councillors were very concerned about the process of acquiring and expropriating land, including River Ward Coun. Maria McRae. She urged caution with finalizing land swaps or purchases because the city now owns many small parcels of land that have little value or usefulness after the cancellation of the city’s previous north-south light rail line plan.

“We were in a big hurry to acquire land,” McRae said about the former light-rail project. “Now we own all these little slivers we can’t do anything with.” The land the city is now looking at is “marketable for resale,” Mayor Jim Watson told councillors. “We don’t want to be saddled with a bunch of pieces of land if the project ends up being unaffordable,” he said. “If … it stretches the city to a limit that is not acceptable and not financially prudent, then obviously we’re going to have to go back and come up with a new plan,” Watson told reporters after the meeting. Gloucester-Southgate Coun. Diane Deans, who is the chair of the city’s transit commission, said she has “growing concerns” about the affordability of the project and that addressing property acquisition before council receives an updated cost estimate is “putting the cart before the horse.” While the system still won’t be ready for use in 2017 for Canada’s 150th birthday, Jensen said the construction will mostly be cleaned up and trains will be available for public viewing during the celebrations. “By advancing the schedule we can ensure our downtown will be in good condition for our birthday celebration,” Jensen said.

Please find me a home Each week we feature animals from the Arnprior and District Humane Society that are up for adoption.

Buddy #3991 Buddy is a neutered 3 year old, Jack Russell Terrier mix. He came from a home that didn’t treat him very well, which left him with some issues that will need some work. He is a lively, sweet boy that loves to play. Buddy is typical of his breed; he has lots of energy and requires an active home. Buddy is best suited in an adult only home, he is not good with children. An owner with breed experience would be ideal. Buddy is good with cats and other dogs but would prefer to be the only pet. He is a fantastic little guy with lots of potential.

Barnaby #3878 Are you that special someone who could give Barnaby a chance? The six-year-old neutered Beagle mix has been at the shelter since December of 2009 and really needs to find a forever home of his own. He is a strong, energetic boy, who loves to go for walks. He is affectionate and loves belly rubs once he knows you, but can be wary of strangers. He is terrifed of loud noises and is a quiet dog that is completely housebroken. Barnaby would love a home with a fenced yard so he can enjoy off-leash exercise. He loves to play and especially enjoys squeaky toys. Barnaby is great with other dogs and cats and would be good with older children. He is a sweet boy that will make a wonderful companion if someone would give him a chance.

Pledge sheets for the June 12 Walk in the Park are now available on the shelter’s website www.arnpriorhumanesociety.ca or can be picked up at the shelter (490 Didak Dr., Arnprior) or the Arnprior or Renfrew Pet Valu stores

Affordability tips for first time homebuyers

(NC)—Owning your first home is a milestone as well as an exciting experience. However, many first time homebuyers can be nervous about the process, as they don’t know what to expect or how to make the best decisions. RBC Royal Bank research shows that homebuyers between the ages of 18–34 worry that buying their first home will mean living outside their means. “With the proper advice and budgeting tools you can still live within your means and purchase your first home – you can do both,” said Kavita Joshi, director, Client Strategies. “A mortgage specialist can help you understand all the financial aspects of owning your first home, by offering tailored advice and support.” Joshi offers a number of tips to help first time homebuyers stretch their dollars even further: Determine how much you can afford – before beginning your house search in earnest, review down payment options, household income, current debt, estimated monthly housing–related costs and closing costs.

CREATE YOUR WISH LIST ESTABLISH YOUR DOWN PAYMENT AMOUNT It’s helpful to establish an amount you are comfortable with prior to making your purchase. You’ll be glad to know that there are options available depending on how much of a down payment you can afford. FACTOR IN YOUR CLOSING COSTS It helps to know upfront what your closing costs will be. When calculating closing costs, it’s fairly safe to assume you’ll need at least an additional 1.5 per cent of the purchase price. GET PRE–APPROVED FOR YOUR MORTGAGE If you are unsure you qualify for a mortgage or how much you qualify for, speak with a mortgage specialist who can see if you can pre–qualify, so you’ll know what your mortgage options will be. UNDERSTAND YOUR PAYMENT OPTIONS Many first–time homebuyers give more thought to interest rates than the mortgage solution itself. While rates certainly have to be considered, the different types of mortgages, various payment structures, terms and

flexibility may have a much greater bearing on your overall costs of homeownership. CONSIDER UNFORESEEN EXPENSES AHEAD OF TIME When you’re buying a home for the first time, there are a number of related costs that you may not be familiar with, including: professional home inspection, lawyer fees, land transfer tax, property tax and property insurance. You also should take into account “one–time” costs, such as moving expenses, and ongoing costs, such as heating, electricity and water. BE REALISTIC You may be under–or over–estimating how much you can afford for a home. Online mortgage calculators make it easier to estimate accurately, by providing you with information on the maximum mortgage payment amount you can afford each month. Check your local mortgage specialist or bank for up to date information. LOVE YOUR NEW HOME Once you’ve received the keys to your new home, it will be time to sit back and enjoy every minute of being a new homeowner.

Muskie chasers and the charities they support are confident they’ll land a lot of fundraising dollars this summer. The Ottawa Valley Muskie Club, led by fishing great Bill Craig, has a number of events planned for every angler, be they kids, first timers, even women. The club is composed of more than 30 members living in many Valley communities, including Arnprior and Ottawa. It promotes the region, related businesses and sustainable fishing practices. June 4 is the annual Ice Breaker tournament held on the Madawaska River. The cost is $25, with registration available at ottawavalleymuskieclub.com and the Antrim Truck Stop. “It’s a good start to the season for us,” Craig said. “The biggest fish takes all.” Last year $425 went to the winner and $425 went to Capital City Condors, a hockey club for special needs kids. July 10 is Kids’ Fishing Day with five or six boats of muskie experts willing to

take boys and girls out on the mighty Ottawa River. About a dozen kids between the ages are signed up already; although they’ve reached capacity, Craig said he has a back-up list for last minute cancellations. Just call him at 613-622-0673. The event runs from 8 a.m. to noon, with a barbecue to follow. The top five will get rods and reels, but Craig said it’s more of an “everyone wins” day. “They’ll all walk away with gifts,” he said of the free event. July 23 is the Women’s Fishing Day with the biggest fish taking the trophy. Contestants will meet at 7 or 8 a.m. at Eastside Mario’s in Arnprior. The $10 fee covers a barbecue lunch that breaks up the day-long tournament. A banquet is held after 6 p.m. “We are the first club around to have a women’s committee,” Craig said. “We took some girls out last year and they loved it. The open space and on the boat. They love the tournament. They’re the

reason we’re doing it. We get a great kick out of seeing how excited they get when they catch one.” Aug. 27 and 28 is the Team Tournament, which runs in conjunction with Arnprior’s White Pine Festival. It starts on Friday at 4 p.m. and ends Saturday at 6 p.m. The boat with the most fish in inches wins. Registration is $50 per person, with prizes for the top three finishers. The group hopes to raise $1,500 for charity. The club meets monthly at Buster’s Bar and Grill on Carling Avenue in Ottawa

OPEN HOUSE

and elsewhere. The tackle swap is popular, as is the bait fish slide show, among other presentations. Craig said the group is made up of easygoing, good guys who share a passion for fishing one of the continent’s largest rivers. “The Ottawa is a class spot to chase fish. Walleye, bass, everything,” he said. “You’ve always got a good chance of catching something really great.” Sept. 10 is the club tournament for members only. It’s a 50/50 cash split.

City to walk the talk on recycling LAURA MUELLER laura.mueller@metroland.com

The city is getting ready to practise what it preaches on recycling. On the heels of a decision to move to biweekly garbage pickup next year in order to encourage organics recycling, the City of Ottawa revealed its own track record of waste diversion in city facilities is far from ideal. In fact, there are no formal recycling or waste management policies for city facilities. That is set to change as the city moves to include smaller municipal buildings in the next residential waste collection contract. “It’s laughable,” said Coun. Maria McRae (River Ward), the chair of the environmental advisory committee. “We need to walk that talk,” she added. While staff and councillors at city hall led the way for waste diversion by keeping 66 per cent of its trash out of the landfill, even city hall staffers fall far short of the 94-per-cent diversion goal that has been set for them. The most egregious offenders were city daycares, which only diverted nine per cent of their waste – short of their 62 per cent goal. The city’s overall goal for both residential waste and institutional, commercial and industrial sectors is 60 per cent. Those statistics were lamented by some councillors, including Mathieu Fleury (Rideau-Vanier), who has worked in multiple city facilities as a lifeguard. He said recycling facilities are sometimes available for the public, but are not readily

accessible by staff at buildings such as pools. Coun. Jan Harder (Barrhaven) said she has attended many community meetings during which people asked her why recycling options aren’t available at the building. City facilities produce 4,000 tonnes of recyclables and waste, which costs $1.25 million to manage. Staff says it is difficult for the city to recycle more at its own buildings because commercial-scale waste diversion and collection services are costly. Green-bin collection wasn’t included in the publicworks waste collection contract in the last round, and it would have cost too much to break the contract to add organics collection, said John Manconi, a manager in Ottawa’s public works department. Just breaking the contract to add greenbin collection to the city’s 150 small facilities would cost $200,000, according to a city report. It would cost an additional $190,000 to add commercial recycling and waste services. Instead, the city is moving forward with a plan to treat those smaller buildings the same way it treats Ottawa residences. Adding 150 city buildings to the residential waste contract, set to take effect next summer, would cost comparatively less: between $20,000 and $25,000 annually. There are still 270 large city facilities that can’t be included in that plan due to the amount of waste they produce. The city is looking at including larger buildings in the multi-residential waste collection contract, set to expire in May 2013.

Proud supporter of:


Helen Sadler of Arnprior has been presented with a certificate designating her as an honorary member of the Galetta Lawn Bowling Club. The honour gives Sadler, a former resident of Galetta, full access to the club and its facilities for life. Dave Jefferies, greenskeeper of the Galetta club, presented Sadler with the certificate last week at the club’s opening pot luck dinner and general meeting. Sadler is one of the founding members of the Galetta Lawn Bowling Club, which opened its gate to the green in 1991. Helen’s late husband, Harold, was the club’s first president. Helen thanked the club’s members for their kindness. At the meeting, president Kin Dillane announced the club would be holding an open

He stressed all ages are welcome, including those in their teens, and that curlers would find the game similar to their winter sport. Vice-president John Stevenson advised the club would be hosting a novice practicum Friday, July 15 as a first-time event for the Galetta club. The event will be open to any bowler in the district who has bowled five or fewer years. The day will involve skills development exercises in the morning and in the afternoon there will be three six-end games to hone the skills developed. The event will be in addition to the three tournaments regularly hosted by the club.

BLAIR EDWARDS

The Ontario Women’s Hockey Association and the Ottawa Senators are looking at providing activities between periods during world championship games for minor league players. “To be part of this hockey festival I think will be a memory of a lifetime for our players,” said Thomas. “I think it continues to grow the game.” Team Canada may feature a few local players, said Thomas, including Jamie Lee Rattray (Kanata), Isabelle Menard (Orleans) and Stephanie McEough (Gloucester).

“I think it’s just an enormous and wonderful opportunity for them to see hockey at the highest levels and inspire our players to be the best players they can,” said Thomas, who is also the president of the Ottawa Senators Women’s Hockey Club. Manitoba experienced a growth spurt in girls’ hockey after Winnipeg hosted the 2007 IIHF women’s world hockey championship, said Scott Farley, vice-president of marketing and events for Hockey Canada. “We expect the same in the Ottawa area,” Farley said.

Boat floats...too well

At about 2:16 p.m. May 23, Ottawa Fire Services received a call for three people in distress in a row boat on Constance Lake. Two water rescue units as well as support units were dispatched to the Constance Lake Lodge. A rescue boat was launched and two females and a male, all in their 20s, were located at the northeast extremity of the lake. All were safe, but they could not return to safety due to the high winds. Firefighters got all three persons on board the

water rescue unit and they were brought back safely to shore. The three had been out fishing when the winds picked up. They had attempted to return to their launch point. However, the winds were too strong to row against and there were no safe places to bring their boat to shore. Boaters are reminded to make sure they have all necessary equipment on board their watercrafts including proper signalling devices prior to heading out on any excursion.

Money offered to landowners near water The Ministry of the Environment is offering funding assistance to landowners who live in proximity to municipal wellhead protection areas or intake protection zones.

What’s really in our backyard? Bio-Blitz unlocks the secrets this Saturday, May 28 In West Carleton, it’s not unusual to encounter deer and fox or to hear coyotes, owls and woodpeckers, but just what else is out there? We will find out this Saturday, May 28, when scientists descend upon Carp to participate in Bioblitz 2011. Designed as part contest, part festival, part educational event and part scientific endeav-

our, a bio-blitz brings together scientists in a race against time to see how many species they can find in a 24-hour period. The diversity of life in our own backyards is phenomenal, and the Carp Hills and South March Highlands are believed to be among the most biodiverse regions in Ottawa.

What better way to study this biodiversity than to invite people to share in the discovery and to experience the vast array of species found in the Carp Hill and the South March Highlands in just the cycle of one day? One of the goals of a bio-blitz is to increase awareness of the variety of life in the neighbourhood and the “free” services these various species provide to improve the quality of our lives.

The Carp Hills and South March Highlands are working ecosystems filled with species that contribute to clean water, fertile soil and clean air. All events will take place at the Carp Agricultural Hall, 3790 Carp Rd. Saturday, May 28 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. For more information and times for specific activities, check out the website at www. carphills.wordpress.com.
