EMC events – Truck and tractor pull enthusiasts will have to look past Kinburn for competition and entertainment this year. A decision has been made by the Kinburn Community Association (KCA) to no longer hold its annual ‘Class A’ Antique Tractor and Truck Pull. But ending an event which marked its 16th year last was not an easy decision. “It was a difficult decision because (everyone involved) was kind of like an extended family,� said KCA president Jayne Coady. “You meet up with these great people every year and it was a lot of fun.� Coady added truck and tractor pull events develop a kind of following and Kinburn’s was no exception. Several years ago, because it had grown so big, the event moved from the Kinburn Community Centre to the former Antrim Flea Market location on old Highway 17. The local event featured a lawn tractor competition, farm tractors and trucks-horse power pull. Prizes added to more than $2,000 for competitors. The concept of the event involved a tractor or truck pulling a ‘sled’ or weight along a course with winners being those pulled the greatest distance. “We were running out of volunteers,� admitted KCA president Jayne Coady. “We knew if we were going to continue we were going to have to get really, really big or just go away quietly. We have decided to go away.� Last year, the KCA was the victim of bad weather and the event was rained out. And Coady said that forced everyone to re-evaluate. She said she is does know of any plans for the organization that took over the date and contacts to host another event locally. She said to the best of her knowledge, the former Antrim Flea Market location is no longer available for use for the event. “They (truck and tractor association) maybe have to put it on in another location if they want to run it that weekend (fourth Saturday in June),� Coady stated.

EMC news – A long-time advocate of transportation services for rural residents is disappointed by the city’s decision to hike fares without properly taking into account the needs of those living outside the urban centre. On April 25, Ottawa city council approved the Transit Commission recommendation to hike fares by an average of 2.5 per cent and get rid of bus tick-

ets in favour of the new PRESTO smart card. That card comes into effect July 1. Dunrobin resident Adele Muldoon, one of the many people to speak at the Transit Commissionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s April 23 meeting, believes the city is increasing costs for the transit service without considering the implication to its rural customers â&#x20AC;&#x201C; primarily seniors needing to get to medical appointments and those with disabilities or limited mobility.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am not happy with all that has transpired,â&#x20AC;? Muldoon admitted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have made great strides when we go them (city) to eliminated the three rural zones in make it one price for a return (Para Transpo) trip into the city,â&#x20AC;? Muldoon. Everyone using Para Transpo from anywhere in the City of Ottawa will now be charged the same $16.50 fee (for a return trip). See TRANSIT, page2

Transit is important to residents, agrees councillor From front page

However, she said Para Transpo will only take a rural resident into the urban part of the city and not to another location in a rural area. For example, a senior needing to get to a medical appointment in Carp from their home in Kinburn cannot use Para Transpo. Muldoon said city staff implied to her there would be taxi service for one rural location to another for Para Transpo. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But that goes against the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own Taxi Bylaw approved by council,â&#x20AC;? Muldoon acknowledged. That bylaw recommended that city council require â&#x20AC;&#x153;the transport of passengers in between the unregulated (rural) area and the regulated areaâ&#x20AC;? and vice versa, but not say specifically there would be service from one rural area to another. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are people out there who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what they need or what service is available until they need it,â&#x20AC;? Muldoon noted. She also takes issue with the fact a once-a-week round-trip shoppersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; bus service from Dunrobin and Carp to shopping destinations in central Ottawa every Wednesday is funded through Para Transpo. Bus Route 203 connects Dunrobin and Carp with Stittsville, Kanata, Bayshore, and Carlingwood. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are now using Para Transpo monies to provide a gro-

cery bus run once a week and they have cut all Para trips from one point to another within the rural area,â&#x20AC;? Muldoon said. While the above service was instituted on a trial basis until June, she is concerned that if it becomes permanent, rural residents will end up paying for it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Transportation is key,â&#x20AC;? Muldoon said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is one of the biggest losses, in my opinion, as a result of amalgamation.â&#x20AC;? Muldoon said she frequently receives calls from residents in need and tries her best to provide them with information and access to services. But, she admitted she is frustrated. GOOD SERVICE Muldoonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s view is not shared by West Carleton-March Coun. Eli El-Chantiry, who believes the city is doing a good job in the area of transportation in rural areas. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We live in a rural area. We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pay transit levies,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we push too much to have (transportation) service equal to the urban area, what is stopping other councilors from saying rural areas should pay a transit levy like the urban areas.â&#x20AC;?

benefit many residents as he believes â&#x20AC;&#x153;94 per cent of the trips on Para Transpoâ&#x20AC;? are in the city.â&#x20AC;? For those who have to travel to medical appointment from one point in West Carleton to another in West Carleton, El-Chantiry said the city is partnering with the Western Ottawa Community to provide transportation to rural residents travelling inside the ward and the city will pay those mileage charges. El-Chantiry emphasized that city councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recent changes to its taxi bylaw make it compulsory for taxi companies to accept calls for accessible cabs from people with disabilities from all parts of he city, including the previously-unregulated (rural) area. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Taxis have to pick up fares from the rural area,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Para Transpo is also using taxis to compensate for the shortfall.â&#x20AC;? As for the weekly shoppersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; bus, El-Chantiry admitted the first bus in January resulted in four trips but that rose to a high of 32 trips in March. We are averaging 20 to 27 people from West Carleton who are enjoying this service,â&#x20AC;? El-Chantiry noted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That is a good service.â&#x20AC;?

Area council tells election mappers to keep hands off county Desmond Devoy desmond.devoy@metroland.com

EMC News – Lanark County is not a pie to be cut up, which is why Carleton Place town council does not want the county cut up any more than it already is by the electoral boundaries commission. Currently, most of the county sits in the federal and provincial ridings of Lanark, Frontenac, Lennox and Addington (LFLA) – except for the northern part of the county, where Mississippi Mills is part of CarletonMississippi Mills. Carleton Place Mayor Wendy LeBlanc explained to the members of the Carleton Place policy review committee meeting on Tuesday, April 24 that, ideally, ridings should have

about 107,000 electors residing within their boundaries. “They (the Federal Electoral Boundaries Commission for Ontario) needs to do some crunching of numbers,” said LeBlanc, with neighbouring ridings trying to balance their numbers through re-drawing their boundaries. MP WORRIED LFLA MP Scott Reid is worried that the electoral boundaries commission could be casting an eye at Lanark County, especially with Carleton Place as the fastest growing town in the county, as a possible solution for balancing out riding numbers outside of the

county. “He (Reid) is quite concerned that Lanark County could be cut up even more than it is,” said LeBlanc of a presentation that Reid had given to Lanark County Council last month. “He showed us a number of scenarios at county council,” which showed the county being divided up amongst as many as four ridings. “He’d like to see it kept together in one riding,” said LeBlanc. “It would have been nice if they (the commission) had come and discussed it with us at council level,” said Coun. Jerry Flynn. “Since we are so close to the (Mississippi Mills) border.” Deputy Mayor Ed Sonnenburg agreed that time was of the essence.

“We want to get to the commission with our desires before they start re-drawing the map,” said Sonnenburg. Flynn added that he would not mind seeing some changes made to the LFLA boundaries, but in the southwest corner, possibly by lumping Napanee, nearly two hours away, in with one of the Kingston-area ridings. “It never made sense what they did in our riding,” said LeBlanc, by adding such farflung communities into the mix. “(But) the commission does not have to listen to us.” The committee voted in favour of the motion to keep Lanark County united, as much as possible, within the same riding if possible, or at least by not dividing the county further.

Grocer offers free delivery to isolated seniors Derek Dunn derek.dunn@metroland.com

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A new grocery delivery program is meant to expand a locally-owned businessâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s services while giving isolated seniors a greater sense of independence. Dunrobin Meat and Grocery already has a solid reputation for offering a variety of food products and services to folks in the area. Owners Julie and Cindy Delahunt are all too aware that the mega grocery chains are moving closer and closer to West Carleton. The sisters have to get creative in how they can do more value-added if they expect to stay competitive with the big

volume producers. However, the Delahunts latest venture is about more than boosting revenue. Last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s winner of a coveted Kanata Chamber of Commerce Peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Choice Award is now offering a grocery delivery service to seniors living in Constance Bay and area. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are offering it as a free delivery service,â&#x20AC;? Julie explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I really hope we can help some seniors that canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get out. I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know there were that many seniors in need out there.â&#x20AC;? Seniors are living longer then ever before thanks to decades of living actively and eating nutritious foods. Many

now want to stay in their home as long as possible. And they are ďŹ nding supporters from disparate sectors. Some maintain that older people should exchange the independence and comfort a home provides for the security and well being of nursing homes or retirement residences. Bob Dupuis doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t agree. A member of the Bay Community Connection (BCC), a local group looking at improving the health, safety and security of seniors and all residents in Constance Bay, Dupuis is impressed with Dunrobin Meat and Grocery stepping forward to address a gap. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A sense of independence is good. The longer a person can remain independent and can be on their own I think is ďŹ ne,â&#x20AC;? Dupuis said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re) providing a resource that wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t there before, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great.â&#x20AC;? The Delahunts and BCC worked together to get the

program off the ground. BCC hand delivered notices with a checklist of items to doors throughout the delivery area of Constance Bay and Buckhamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bay. With some 800 seniors in the area, there could be a couple of hundred who canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t or are rarely able to get out for groceries and other basics. Dupuis said it is impossible to know exactly how many seniors live in isolation. That you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t or wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t share your status is intrinsic to being cut off from the greater community, he indicated. That some are ashamed of their situation or too proud to ask for assistance, are other possibilities. Whatever the reason, Dupuis is convinced the program could beneďŹ t many. HOW IT WORKS The program is open to both seniors and their caregivers on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Orders can be placed by calling 613.832.3462 or by email to dunrobinmeat@

Caitlin Kidney, left, and Katie Nichol participate in Dunrobin Meat and Groceryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s delivery program. Groceries are driven free of charge to seniors in the Bay area. explornet.com. If the order is placed before noon, the Delahunts will have the groceries delivered on the same day before 5 p.m. Orders must total $25 or more before free delivery kicks in (excluding tobacco). No alcohol will be delivered. When the groceries arrive at the doorstep customers will pay by cash, Visa or Mastercard. They will also prepare a cooked or ready-to-cook meal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fresh platters of all kinds are available for an easy, no fuss way of entertaining company,â&#x20AC;? Julie said. She is aware that gas prices

continue to skyrocket, and isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sure how long the program will be in place. But for now Julie is pleased to have a chance to help those who deserve it most. Dupuis said most seniors who stay in their homes do so because they are surrounded by caring family, friends and neighbours. Not all are so lucky, and sometimes it works out that a senior has no one to help out at a particular moment. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why the program offered by Dunrobin Meat and Grocery makes for a nice addition.

4 DAYS ONLY! If you are seriously considering buying furniture in the near future, now is the time to visit La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries. Moonlight Madness is a semi-annual clearance event like no other. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why. Twice a year the factory hosts an International Trade Show where all of the new products are introduced to the world. We have recently returned from the North Carolina Market after purchasing truckloads of new introductions. We need to make room for the new arrivals on our showroom ďŹ&#x201A;oors and in the warehouse. Moonlight Madness is the markdown sales event where we clear out last seasonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s models, discontinued fabrics, cancelled special orders and all excess inventory to make room for incoming inventory. Many items are limited to stock on hand and no rain-cheques can be issued at these prices. With pressure to reduce inventory and make room in our warehouse, price reductions are dramatic. There are markdowns from 10% - 50% throughout the store. Many discontinued items, cancelled orders and special buys will be priced at cost, near cost or below cost. Pick up a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Scratch & Saveâ&#x20AC;? card in the store and you can save 5% - 100% off your purchase. Plus, Pay No Interest for up to 12 Months*!

residents. After tackling the issues affecting seniors the task force plans to move onto issue affecting local youths. The purpose of the workshop was to outline the needs of seniors and residents in the community. It is a continuation of the work started by a resident-led task force launched last summer to improve the welfare and livelihoods of people living in rural areas. Attendees reviewed the results of an online survey created by the BCC. That survey revealed the top issues for seniors in the community were isolation, proper access to medical care and food, followed by trafďŹ c and road safety. The BCC is currently working in partnership with the Ottawa Police Service, the Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre (WOCRC), Ottawa Public Health, REACH, Dunrobin Meat and Grocery, St. Gabrielâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Church, the Constance and Buckhamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bay Community Association and the ofďŹ ce of West Carleton-March Coun.

Assisting the BCC in its efforts is Julie McKercher, the rural community developer with the WOCRC who is responsible for West Carleton and Richmond. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It went incredibly well.

LETTER

MPP says â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;dysfunctionalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; OCDSB needs to work together To the editor: The following letter was sent to Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Education Minister Laurel Broten and the West Carleton Review EMC. The lack of classroom space in the riding I represent is a serious concern. The board of trustees of the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board (OCDSB) is dysfunctional. A block of downtown trustees are ignoring recommendations

from staff and the community to build new schools and new school additions in the rapidly growing new areas of Ottawa. Students, parents, and staff will suffer from the delayed and wrongful decisions. Problems with the OCDSB should not come as a surprise to the ministry. In 2007, a special assignment team of Joan Green and Brian Cain were tasked by the

former Minister of Education, Kathleen Wynne, to identify the problems and make recommendations on ďŹ xing them. This report, titled â&#x20AC;&#x153;All Students and All Communitiesâ&#x20AC;?, included 26 recommendations to deal with the numerous problems within the OCDSB. There were numerous concerns with the OCDSB that were heard by the committee from the community, trustees,

of trust in the organization. Unless this is addressed, nothing will change. Board is divided â&#x20AC;&#x201C; There are struggling factions on the board which creates mistrust and stalls decision-making. Provincial relationships â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Ministry has blinders on regarding the real experiences of school boards. Ministry doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always know how school boards really work.

and staff. Some of them were: Leadership â&#x20AC;&#x201C; ConďŹ&#x201A;ict among board members and board leadership issues â&#x20AC;&#x201C; we have a divided board where too much politics is at play and not enough time is spent on discussions about students. Concern that board decisions are based on â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;what feels goodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; as opposed to being based on hard data. There is a tremendous lack

I ask you to conduct a review of the performance and functionality of the OCDSB board of trustees. I also ask for a progress update on the 26 recommendations of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;All Students and All Communitiesâ&#x20AC;? report to ensure all of the concerns brought forward in 2007 have been properly addressed.

Cutting MP pay, pensions could help clean up politics

T

axpayers forked over at least $45,000 to Prime Minster Stephen Harper to enjoy a New York Yankees game and a Broadway show last Labour Day. That stories of a bloated sense of entitlement continue to pile up many years after the Liberal party was shown the door comes as little surprise to many. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s little difference among parties that have held power in Canada, they lament. Certainly a segment of voters actually believed Harper

meant it, some 10 years ago, when he talked about grassroots decision-making and battling corruption in the federal government. That Harper would squander tens of thousands of dollars on himself during Labour Day, of all days, sends yet another message to the other side. The 99 per cent might get a day off, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll cost them. True, the symbolic message doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come close to Peter MacKayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s helicopter trip let alone Tony Clementâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s alleged

misappropriation of $50 million. The examples of Conservatives gleefully blowing taxpayers money over the last few years could go on and on. But cutting heads off a blue Lernaean Hydra instead of a red one matters little. The point is both Liberals and Conservatives have little credibility left on matters of openness, accountability, corruption and other issues. Even their belief in free and fair elections â&#x20AC;&#x201C; at least when in comes to the Conservatives â&#x20AC;&#x201C; has become suspect.

So, whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the answer to the downward spiral in Canadian politics? A possible contribution to reversing the decline comes from the right wing Canadian Taxpayers Federation (CTF). According to figures compiled by CTF, taxpayers contributed $23.30 last year for every dollar put into the parliamentary pension plan by MPs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;How do you explain to someone scraping for their retirement that Canada canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford $508 a month for a 65-year-old, when defeated 60-year-

old backbench MP Yasmin Ratansi got $2,758 a month after just seven years on the job,â&#x20AC;? asks CTF. MPs pensions are too high. MPs salaries are too high. And the numerous related perks are offensive to the average person. There is a fiscal argument for bringing down MPsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; compensation and reinvesting it in social programs. But the moral argument is more important. There is a relationship between escalating MP compensation packages and

the increasing sense of entitlement and corruption weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve witnessed over the last couple of decades. It is clear that not everyone in federal politics is unethical. Some can take a six-figure salary and still put the interests of constituents and the nation ahead of themselves. It is equally clear, though, that the lure of big money attracts the greedy and selfindulgent. To explain away that basic truism with â&#x20AC;&#x153;Well, you have to pay top dollar for the best qualified people,â&#x20AC;? simply doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fly anymore. The current situation is the proof.

COLUMN

Finding a needle in a big-box haystack Ottawa where people are friendly, informed and eager to help. It just happens to be one that is nearby. There is probably a favourite store in your neighbourhood, too, if you have a neighbourhood. Lots of people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, because of how cities have grown in recent years. Many people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have neighbourhood stores, they have shopping centres. And even the neighbourhoods are changing. The other day we were back at Westboro Sports to drop off a sympathy card for Doug Herbst, who died far too young after a lifetime at Westboro Sports. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure we are not the only family in Ottawa in which three generations have bought bikes and skates at Westboro Sports. In the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;70s, Dougâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father, Bill, helped us with hockey equipment, telling us what we needed for Tyke hockey, what we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need so much, advice that saved us money that we would not have saved at the shopping centre. In the decades since, it was Doug, along with his brother Geoff, who helped out with bicycles and skates, most recently with our grandchildren. He will really be missed, but the store will go on because there are hundreds of people like us out there. You hope that there are enough of us to keep other small businesses going, in the face of overpowering competition from stores that can offer more, and cheaper, and giant parking lots, but wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be able to tell you why one pair of skates is more suitable for a five-year-old than another and wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be able to drop everything to fix some little thing that went wrong with a bicycle. We were looking at the changing face of Westboro and trying to figure out if there are any other stores left that were there when we first visited Westboro Sports. Even the Newport, in its present form, has been around only since 1988. Other stores are even newer. Eventually, more and more of them will become chains, as high rents drive the little guys out. Running a neighbourhood business is a challenge, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s made a lot easier when customers are loyal to the neighbourhood, because they know where to look for a needle.

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town

I

â&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been compiling a list of things you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t buy in a shopping centre. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s short so far, but it will grow, as stores get bigger and farther away. It goes without saying that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll never find that one little hardware part you need. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have to buy a dozen. A surprising entry on the list is a newspaper. The other day I was in a shopping centre and realized there was no such thing as a newsstand. The drug store, didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have any. It used to be that you couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t avoid newspapers. A less surprising item that you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find in a shopping centre is a pump needle. You need to pump up your basketball, say, and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in a shopping centre, which has a sports store and a department store. But the department storeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sporting good section mostly sells exercise equipment and the sports store mostly sells clothes. You ask about a needle and get a funny look. Someone at the department store says go to Walmart. So next time Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m in Westboro I wander into Westboro Sports Centre on Richmond Road, which might have needles because it has bicycles and pumps. The guy doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t look at me funny. We do stock those, he says, but â&#x20AC;Ś and the â&#x20AC;&#x153;butâ&#x20AC;? is that he just sold the last one. But â&#x20AC;Ś and then he disappears for a moment and comes back with a needle. I was using this one, but you can have it, he says, because I want you to feel special. Anybody got a basketball they want pumped? Now, I wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say Westboro Sports is the only place in Ottawa that has a needle for your pump. Nor will I say that it is the only store in

I really do like the fascinating shrike EMC Lifestyle - Years ago I read a book filled with little poems about birds. One of my favourites went more or less like this: “I like the Shrike because with a thorn for a guillotine, it does its work so neat and clean. A practical bird whose common sense must be immense for tell me who has ever heard of such a thing as a Loggerhead Shrike that tried to sing.” There are two interesting facts about shrikes revealed in the ditty. One is that it uses thorns to hold its prey. The other is that shrikes are not good singers. Two species of shrikes can be found in our re-

Michael Runtz Nature’s Way gion. Loggerhead Shrikes, the subject of the poem in that forgotten book, are found here only in summer. When I was young, they

were reasonably common. I can recall walking from Arnprior along the Canadian Pacific Railway tracks across the Madawaska River trestle to what was then McEwen’s Creek (now under 75 feet of water) and finding no fewer than four active shrike nests all full of babies! Today only one nest is known in all of the Ottawa Valley. Their decline is not fully understood but likely development of their nesting habitat and increased vehicular are key factors. The other shrike is the Northern Shrike, which only nests in Ontario in the northern

muskeg. They appear in our area only in late fall and winter. There have been a number of Northerns around this winter, and I was fortunate to see three on Sunday. Both species of shrikes are similar in that they like to perch atop a shrub or small tree for a good view of the area in which they hunt. They are robin-sized (Northerns are a bit larger than Loggerheads) and sport a black mask. The bill is large and is hooked at the tip, more so in the Northern. Their feet are more like those of a songbird than of a bird of prey, and the hefty bill is their killing tool. On it lies a special cutting

notch, the tomial tooth, that is used to sever the neck vertebrae of the victim. Despite what the poem suggests, shrikes do not cut the heads off their prey on a thorn. Rather, they impale their prey to hold it while they eat it, or to store it for later consumption. If hunting is good, a larder of stored food results. It is rather unnerving to walk through an old field with scattered hawthorns and find dozens of small carcasses hanging from the thorns. Shrikes will carry small prey in the bills but use their feet to catch and carry birds.

One of the shrikes I saw recently was carrying a bird in that fashion. Shrikes are fascinating birds. The scientific name of the Northern Shrike says it all: Lanius excubitor means “butcher watchman.” I truly like the shrike!

Be an Active Tourist: Walk or Bike Your Way to Health Written by Lorrie Levesque, B.A., B.Sc., Project Officer, Ottawa Public Health, Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Branch

Being active is good for our physical and mental health. Getting active doesn’t mean spending hours May is physical activity month in Ottawa. It is a at the gym. It’s about making small changes that result great time to start being more active, to see the city in health gains. One way is to become an “active tourist” in your own city and neighbourhood: and to enjoy warmer weather. In the last 25 years, we have become less active. In fact, 68% of Canadian men and 69% of women spend the majority of their waking hours sitting, an average of 9 hours a day. We are spending more time in our seats and less time on our feet!

• Park your car and explore the heritage sites (http://www.canadascapital.gc.ca/places-to-visit/ parliament-hill) downtown • Walk or bike along Ottawa’s many trails and paths You can improve your health by being an “active (http://www.canadascapital.gc.ca/places-to-visit/ tourist” and enjoying all Ottawa has to offer. parks-paths/capital-pathway-recreational-pathscapital ) • Get into nature and have a fun hike with your family in the National Capitals Greenbelt (http:// www.canadascapital.gc.ca/places-to-visit/ greenbelt/things-to-do/hiking-walking-greenbelt ) • Borrow a pedometer (http://biblioottawalibrary. ca/en/main/library/card/using/other/pedometer ) from an Ottawa Public Library and count your steps as you visit the Tulip Festival (http:// tulipfestival.ca/index.php/site/home/en )

Walking is good for

your health, but remember to be safe Written by Terry-Lynne Marko B.ScN., Public Health Nurse, Ottawa Public Health, Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Branch

Walking is good for your health. It is a free and easy way to travel to school, work or to run an errand, but it is important to be safe. For example, a child who talks on the phone while crossing the street, has a one in three chance of being hit by a car. You and your family can enjoy a safe walk with a few simple safety tips:

Be aware • Put away anything that distracts you, like cell phones and handheld music devices • Make eye contact with drivers and cyclists before you step off the curb, and make sure they will stop for you • Walk on the sidewalk or if no sidewalk is available, on the street towards traffic

Be noticed

• Walk with a friend or in a group • Wear bright coloured clothes • Walk across the street at a designated crossing • In the evening, wear clothes that reflect light

Walking is a great way to stay healthy and see the city. Go for a walk today and enjoy. Visit Safe Kids Canada www.safekids.ca to find out more information on walking safely.

Be a teacher

Around the age of 10 years old, children learn how to judge distance, depth and speed of cars. • Teach and show your children how, when and where to cross the street • Help your children to be confident • Start on quiet streets and over time, teach them to be safe in busier areas

Be comfortable • • •

Wear comfy clothes and shoes Use sunscreen Drink plenty of water

OCDSB okays overcrowding fixes for Kanata schools David Johnston

EMC news - A plan to ease overcrowding in Kanata schools was approved by trustees during a marathon meeting of the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board on April 24. Anxious parents and concerned residents packed the meeting room and waited through the board’s lengthy agenda before hearing debate on the Kanata motion. It was after 11 p.m. when Kanata trustee Cathy Curry was able to present a motion that included approval for a new elementary school for Kanata north along with an eight-room addition at South March Public School and an addition to the Earl of March Secondary School. Following a protracted de-

bate, trustees voted 7 to 3 with two abstentions to accept the motion, which also included changing Earl of March to house grades 7 to 12 by September 2015. The decision comes after more than a year of research and debate supported by the publicly-driven accommodation review committees (ARCs) set up by the board to look into solutions to the lack of space. In presenting the motion, Curry said the overcrowding has reached “crisis” proportions with more than 800 extra seats needed for September 2012 and 1,750 required by 2014. Curry pointed out that the board has no land secured for building a new school in Kanata north, a predicament

which could lead to students being bused out of the community to attend schools in other areas. “Hope is not a strategy,” Curry told her peers. “Kanata is so far behind that we need a high school and an elementary school.” All trustees praised the work of the ARC volunteers in bringing the crisis into focus and supplying recommendations to the board. ARC representatives had the opportunity to speak to the board prior to the vote. Cathy Biggs, chair of the Kanata North ARC, said, “no one knows the details of the overcrowding like we do. That’s why our committee voted unanimously April 18 that a new school and two additions are required.”

Biggs said the committee had reversed its earlier recommendation after learning new information following the end of the committee’s tenure. “After hearing staff recommendations and discussion from trustees, we were told there was no new school available. This would be totally unacceptable. We were shortsighted in our recommendations as they were written.” In the hotly contested debate, trustees voiced differing opinions on the issue, some refusing to give in to the motion. Board chair Jennifer McKenzie voted against the motions and provided two alternative motions should Curry’s have failed. Trustee Shirley Seward also voted against the Kanata North motion as well as por-

tions of the Kanata South motion. “My first loyalty is to the community, to students and their parents,” she said. Her decision was based in part on a large amount of email she received on the issue where parents have expressed their opinions. Kanata south will not see a new school though Glen Cairn Public School will transition to an intermediate school for Grade 7 to 8 starting in September 2013. Other changes include boundary realignments, program and grade structure alterations. ARC Speaking as a delegation, Susan Wehrmann, chair of the Kanata South ARC, called

Curry’s motion “reasonable”, adding that six of 10 members of the Kanata South ARC favoured the motion. Heather MacDonald of AY Jackson Secondary School supported the grades 7 to 12 model, suggesting benefits such as extracurricular mentoring and coaching. Speaking for the Stephen Leacock Public School Council, Catherine Roberts said, “We do feel that a 7 to 12 facility is a necessary component of this solution.” Megan Cornell of the Kanata Lakes Community Association said she was against the 7 to 12 model and expansion to Earl of March, stressing that board staff must first determine how the expansion could accommodate amenities such as a gym.

MacLaren said trustees are failing to address overcrowding issues in Ottawa’s growth areas. “The board of trustees of the Ottawa Carleton District School Board is dysfunctional,” writes MacLaren. “A block of downtown trustees are ignoring recommendations from staff and the community to build new schools and new school additions in the rapidly growing new areas of Ottawa.” Board chair Jennifer McKenzie said there are no voting blocks on the board. “Not at all,” she said. “Every trustee around the table is working in the best interest of the community and listening to the debate around the table and voting independently.” McKenzie said she understood that some parents in Kanata were feeling anxious about the process. “We’re not failing to investigate the overcrowding issue

in Kanata,” she said. “We’ve had many months of process already and we’re in the final stages of that at the board.” Nepean-Carleton MPP Lisa MacLeod, the Progressive Conservative education critic, called on the Ministry of Education to investigate Kanata parents’ claims the board was ignoring recommendations coming from the two accommodation reviews and staff. MacLeod has also joined Barrhaven Coun. Jan Harder in urging Barrhaven trustee Donna Blackburn to step down after the trustee supported plans to rebuild Broadview Public School. On Monday, April 16, an Ottawa public school board committee rejected a staff plan to address overcrowding in Kanata schools. The staff plan is supported by Kanata trustee Cathy Curry and the chairs of the two accommodation review commit-

working school, so it’s adequate,” said MacLaren. “They have a school in Broadview, but they don’t have a school in Kanata or Barrhaven.” But the need for a Broadview rebuild has been on the board’s list since 1988, said McKenzie. “So it’s not surprising that it’s coming forward again,” said the trustee, who presented the amendment at the board’s business services committee meeting on April 11. Broadview is in such disrepair that investing $4 million in renovations, as suggested by staff, would be “throwing good money after bad,” said McKenzie. MacLaren said the Ministry of Education identified systemic problems with the board starting in 2007, when then Tory Education Minister Kathleen Wynne assigned Joan Green and Brian Cain to investigate the board, who listed their conclusions in a report titled, All Students and All Communities. The report said the board was divided with “too much politics in play,” with voting factions who stalled decision making, said MacLaren. “I ask you to conduct a review of the performance and functionality of the OCDSB board of trustees,” he writes in the letter to the ministry. “I also ask for a progress update on the 26 recommendations of the All Students and All Communities report to ensure all the concerns brought forward have been properly addressed.”

tees, which spent the past two years preparing a set of recommendations for changes to grades, programs and boundaries in Kanata north and south. The motion was opposed by trustees living in the city’s urban core. “Students, parents, and staff will suffer from the delayed and wrongful decision,” wrote MacLaren. At another meeting, the same trustees who voted down the staff motion to address overcrowding in Kanata schools supported an amendment to the board’s capital priorities list for a rebuild of Broadview Public School in downtown Ottawa, said MacLaren. Board staff had recommended renovating the school at the cost of $4 million. Trustee McKenzie presented an alternative motion, a modified version of the Kanata South Accommodation Review Committee proposal, which was also rejected by trustees. Staff said the plan will not address the problem of weak program enrolment at the school and would lead to another accommodation review in as little as two years.

Bus ticket price hike to hurt low-income people: agencies laura.mueller@metroand.com

EMC news - A plan to get rid of bus tickets in favour of a new smart-card system raised concerns from advocates who fear the move will unfairly hike transit costs for low-income people and community organizations. Tickets would still be available for the foreseeable future, but with the roll-out of the Presto smart-card payment system for OC Transpo on July 1, paying with tickets will cost more per-ride than paying with the cash value people can load on to their new Presto cards. The move is intended to encourage people to switch to the Presto card, but delegates who spoke to the city’s transit commission on April 23 accused OC Transpo of unfairly increasing costs for the transit service’s most disadvantage customers. Low-income residents who take transit infrequently favour using tickets, said Tong Zhao-Ansari of the City for All Women Initiative and many don’t have easy access to the Internet (or a phone) needed to top up the value on a Presto card. Some don’t even have a debit or credit card that would provide the funds to transfer. Those people would be limited to using cash to top up

their Presto cards at city client service centres or OC Transpo sales centres (while tickets are available at hundreds of stores across the city). With tickets as their only viable option, a 15 per cent increase on tickets (compared to an overall fare increase of 2.5 per cent) is unfair, several advocates told the commission. “Why should people on low income and service agencies feel this increase so acutely?” Zhao-Ansari asked the transit commission on April 23. Low-income people also benefit from the ticket system because community service agencies like the Plant Pool Recreation Association hand out tickets so people can take transit to access their programs. With a jump in ticket prices and no comparable temporary pass option available through Presto when it rolls out, the association’s Ida Henderson said the group will end up paying an additional 80 cents for each of the 330 swimming program vouchers it hands out clients of a family crisis centre. “We can’t understand how we or others will be able to cope without a system like tickets or something similar,” Henderson said. While she understands the desire to provide financial in-

centives for riders to switch to Presto, Henderson asked for the city and OC Transpo to find a way to do that without disadvantaging service agencies and the low-income residents they serve. John Manconi, general manager of OC Transpo, agreed the ticket issue is important and one of the challenges the transit service will be looking at to find an alternate, Prestocompatible option for single rides or temporary use. ECOPASS MOURNED

Two transit commissioners – public member Emily Rahn and Gloucester-South Nepean Coun. Steve Desroches – were upset that the introduction of Presto will spell the end of

the EcoPass program, a type of bus pass that could be offered by payroll reduction by employers that wanted to encourage transit use amongst employees. Rahn, who has used an EcoPass in the past, said the change will not only increase the cost of the pass, it will also take away some of the benefits such as payroll deduction. “These are core customers that have been using the system,” Rahn added. Desroches asked that the motion (approved by council on April 25) include instruction for OC Transpo staff to “develop a supportive and flexible program with Presto for local employers who wish to subsidize and or encourage transit use by employees.” 0426 R0021359651

You are invited to attend this session to get all of the information needed to help keep your volunteers engaged and ready to serve. There will be a presentation and then an open discussion on how these new rules will affect the way you meet the needs of your volunteers and the clients they help. The session takes place Thursday, May 10, from 10am to noon at Volunteer Ottawa, C3 Centre, 1155 Lola Street, Suite 201. There is a cost of $20 to attend. For more information contact Karen Buckshi, Education Coordinator, 613-7365266 x114, education@volunteerottawa.ca. Speeding on our Roads I frequently hear from residents who are concerned with the speed at which motorists travel along our rural roads. I would like to remind everyone that you should contact the Ottawa Police directly at 613-236-1222 x7300 to make formal complaints regarding speeding on our streets. You should also encourage your neighbours to do the same. The police need to hear from the public when speeding is witnessed. It’s only when they are notified that the complaint can be logged, assigned an officer and action taken. As well, because the police track trends happening in our neighbourhoods they are far better equipped than my office in deciding on the best course of action to take.

Last September, just after riding 100 km from Ottawa to Merrickville in Ride the Rideau, which is organized by The Ottawa Hospital Foundation, West was diagnosed with nonHodgkin’s Lymphoma, a cancer which attacks the body’s immune system. As an avid athlete, he never thought it would happen to him. Not expecting to hear the words, ‘you most likely have cancer’ from his doctor, West was alone when he received his diagnosis. After the initial shock, the hardest part was going home to deliver the news to his wife, Eunice. “The emotional impact of having cancer is huge for you and your family,” he said. “It was such a shock… To go home and tell your wife that the doctor told me I most likely have cancer just shakes you to

end of his treatment by ringing the ceremonial victory bell in the Chemotherapy Unit of TOHCC. More than ever, he realizes the importance of supporting cancer care at The Ottawa Hospital and research at the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute. In addition to returning as title sponsor for the third year of Ride the Rideau, West is also captaining his own team on September 8, 2012. While the company has set “a stretch goal” of $70,000, West has committed to personally raising half of that amount. “When I began supporting the efforts of The Ottawa Hospital to improve cancer care in our community, I never thought I would be a patient here myself,” he said. “I experienced firsthand what the support of events like Ride the Rideau do,” he said. “It makes such a difference. Thanks to the treatment I received at The Ottawa Hospital, I’m here for my family, my work, and to cycle another day.” To support Steve West’s ride, or to register for Ride the Rideau, visit www.ridetherideau.ca.

Made possible through the support of local police and community volunteers, the 3rd annual event offered children bicycle safety lessons, free bike tuning and a special bike decorating contest. Event organizer Gloria Spagnolo was thrilled to see sunny skies and so many local youth taking part, especially after rain cut last year’s bike safety event short.

Gum disease controversy makes headlines during dental health month EMC lifestyle - The CBCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s headlines on April 19 stated that gum disease and heart disease may not be directly linked. What does this mean to you and me? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The message sent out by some in health-care professions, that heart attack and stroke are directly linked to gum disease, can distort the facts, alarm patients and perhaps shift the focus on prevention away from well-known risk factors for these diseases,â&#x20AC;? said Dr. Peter Lockhart, a professor and chair of oral medicine at the Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte, N.C.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The studies pointing to a link were not designed well enough to find more than an associationâ&#x20AC;?, Lockhart said. What the CBC article tries to explain is that it is not a direct

Muriel Laughton

cause and effect relationship. But there is an association. Both gum disease, or periodontal disease, and cardiovascular disease produce markers of inflammation and

markers predict cardiovascular disease. However the most directly associated disease with gum disease is diabetes because there is a 2-way association. People who have diabetes are more likely to have serious gum disease. People with gum disease are more likely to acquire diabetes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Gum disease can also contribute to other health conditions like pneumonia in senior citizensâ&#x20AC;?, said the president of the Canadian Dental Association. Bacteria from the mouth are breathed in to the lungs resulting in pneumonia. Registered Dental hygienists have been educating their patients/clients for many years about these associations. Statistically, a positive association between these diseases is significant and does exist. So what does this mean?

Community association to talk about poison ivy EMC lifestyle - Can you recognize poison ivy? Do you know what to do if you have a reaction? Can you get it from petting your dog? The March Rural Community Association extends an open invitation to everyone to attend our meeting on Wednesday, May 9, when we will hear a presentation by one of our residents who has researched the topic, as well as sharing

personal experiences. Many live with this pesky plant on our property, and have had to come to terms with it. We look forward to learning more about how to avoid it, as well as how to deal with its inevitable consequences. There will also be discussions about how to deal with the Emerald Ash Borer. This is a hot topic across the city, and although we are not see-

ing widespread tree removal by the City in our community just now, we all need to better understand the options for property owners. At the meeting April 11, a presentation by Steve Nason of the plans for the new Kanata North Recreation Complex, with a review of the various indoor and outdoor sports and recreation facilities, and a description of the fundraising.

Have your teeth cleaned regularly by a dental hygienist and follow the homecare instructions that you receive. This way the inflammation in your mouth will be eliminated decreasing your risk of systemic disease. The president of the Canadian Dental Hygienists Association states that the most common dental problem among adults is the lack of access to care and inability to pay for it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dental hygienists are the primary care provider. The impact of oral health and chronic disease like diabetes

is profound. The connection between the mouth and body is real.â&#x20AC;? Lockart does confirm that having clean teeth and healthy gums are important for overall health. Treatment is required for simple gingivitis, or inflammation of the gums, and for chronic periodontal disease where bone around the roots of the teeth disappear, eventually leaving teeth wobbly. Dental Hygienists have taken any association between gum disease and systemic conditions very seriously. They have diligently educated, and

thoroughly removed the tartar and plaque to stop these oral diseases in their tracks! Now you can easily access dental cleaning directly from an Independent Dental Hygienist. There, your periodontal needs will be assessed and addressed and your systemic health risk reduced. This article is written by Muriel Laughton RDH, BA Psych, who has just opened an Independent Dental Hygiene Practice at 202-1300 Carling Avenue, 613-722-7108. She is on the executive of the Ottawa Dental Hygienistsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Society.

Late summer festival set to return to Constance Bay Event to raise funds for proposed community centre expansion Theresa Fritz theresa.fritz@metroland.com

EMC news – Bay Days are back. Plans are well underway to bring a one-time successful community festival back to Constance Bay over a 10-day period this summer. Bay Days, as the celebration is known, will run from Friday, Aug. 24 to Labour Day Monday, “Bay Days was a huge community event almost 15 years ago,” explained Constance and Buckham’s Bay Community Association (CBBCA)

past president and main event organizer Len Russell. “Our board (executive) thought it would be a good time for us to celebrate our past and our future.” A lot of time and energy has gone into bringing the event back to the community and every attempt is being made to offer a wide-variety of entertainment and activities. “We expect to have a couple of major performances,” Russell offered. “We will have fireworks on two consecutive weekends and a very

large children’s day. Also planned are beach events, games, shows (cars and dogs), regattas, canoe races, competitions, tournaments, beer tent, fireworks, etc. The overall theme of the event will be ‘retro’ and organizers are hoping to bring back some of the events that cottagers enjoyed in the ‘60s and ‘70s. “In the old days, Bay Days was held over two days – one day at the beach and the other at the community centre,” Russell recalled.

And the community centre will be a big part of this year’s event. Bay Days will also be a celebration of the 40th anniversary of the CBBCA as well as the community centre on Len Purcell Drive. Russell confirmed that funds raised from Bay Days will go towards the proposed expansion to the community centre. While no details on this proposal were public as of press deadline, watch for a news story on this exciting development in the future. With most summer weekends already filled with events, Russell is not concerned

about the fact Bay Days will fall during Arnprior’s White Pine Festival and Kinburn’s Swampfest. “It really can stand on its own,” he said. “We are really focusing primarily on our community…we are not trying to compete with other events.” While the hope is that people from outside Constance Bay will take in some of the festivities, the primary goal of Bay Days is for local residents to celebrate their own community with their neighbours. “We don’t want to lose sight of all the people who live here,” Russell noted.

Not much has changed in Constance Bay over the years. The nearly 100-year-old community has many long-time residents who are dedicated volunteers, many of whom assisted with Bay Days in its previous incarnation. “There will be something for every age,” Russell concluded. “It will be the biggest event we’ve ever had in Constance Bay.” While the plan is to continue Bay Days on a yearly basis, the expectation is the 10-day format will only be for this year and possibly next year. After that, the festival will become a weekend event.

Fraser, who started as a teller and worked her way up to account manager, is originally from Kinburn, and worked most of her time at the Arnprior branch. In her retirement, Fraser plans to spend time with family, including her three grandchildren.

My View From Island View

Your Comfort Zone

So I was giving some thought to my comfort zone the other day. My definition of a comfort zone is that area in your life that you operate from where you feel most comfortable, stable, secure and confident. I find when I stay in this zone for very long I get bored, irritated, lethargic and apathetic. I think it’s very important for all of us to get out of our comfort zone to feel energized, challenged and alive. I believe that is why my love for traveling is so strong. As much as it makes me uncomfortable and stressed some of the times, the benefits are so rewarding. When you are standing all alone in Belize doing yoga on a beach in the Golf of Honduras how can you not feel totally alive. When you are zip lining over a 50 foot gorge in Costa Rica how can you not feel energized and when you are caring, bathing and changing diapers for an abandoned baby gibbon in Thailand, how can you not feel like an anxious mother? Taking ourselves out of our own comfort zone is imperative for personal growth. It lends itself to increasing self confidence a hundred times over. It teaches you so much about yourself, the good and not so good points about your personality. Removing yourself from a comfort zone creates courage and passion for life. It can also introduce you to so many challenging

KIMBERLEY

O’SHAUGHNESSY Marketing Manager

Island View Retirement Suites

and rewarding experiences. It helps you figure out what you excel at doing, what you enjoy and what you would never want to do again!

Another resident who will remain nameless, recalls being way out of his comfort zone also during the war when, how should I say, a lady of the evening approached him and wanted to take one of his crew members away for a few days for some fun and he had to tell her NO!

For instance, I really do not like horses very much. I have tried very hard to enjoy them. From a young age starting around 8 years old, I have put myself in situations where I ride them and pet them and the experience is never good. Horses have left me hanging in trees, hanging on for dear life and hanging upside down. Horses feel my fear, play on my sensibilities and then enjoy terrorizing me. I have made the decision in my life to stay IN my comfort zone around horses.

Leaving a comfort zone behind can challenge us to step up to the plate in a variety of ways. Believing that it is ok to make mistakes and try again makes it easier to step out of this zone. Whatever this means for you, I challenge you to try something different. It could be a new activity or a new way to approach someone you are having difficulty with. Try something different, step out of your comfort zone and see what happens. It may add some spice to your life.

Doug who just moved into Island View a few weeks ago shared with me a story from his younger years when he was a co-pilot in the 2nd World War. He recalls being out of his comfort zone when flying supplies of food, ammunition and medical provisions to paratroops that he had previously dropped at the bridges crossing the Rhine River. He did this all while under heavy fire from the Germans.

Old-fashioned fun promised Party time: Town of Arnprior gears up for major 150th anniversary bash this June

WEEKEND EXCITEMENT

The June 8-10 weekend will open with a community event designed to get families out together. â&#x20AC;&#x153;On Friday night, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to have an outdoor family movie night at the park,â&#x20AC;? said Grinstead. The movie Real Steel is suitable for all ages and organizers hope families come out to enjoy the event and kick off the festival. â&#x20AC;&#x153;On Saturday the festivities are going to be kicked off with a parade, graciously being organized by the Arnprior Legion,â&#x20AC;? said Grinstead. Expected to draw participation from antique cars to steam-powered tractors and of course, more modern ďŹ&#x201A;oat entries as well, the parade should be lots of fun for all ages, said Grinstead. The steam-powered tractors will then be on display on John Street, a portion of which will be closed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be great to see all the old tractors,â&#x20AC;? said Grinstead. Downtown merchants will be getting involved, with a sidewalk sale and other features planned for the weekend. The museum will have special displays for visitors, including the contents of a time capsule buried on the occasion of the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 125th anniversary. Art in the Park will take place at CN Park on Saturday as well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All day Saturday, there will be a selection of local art work on display,â&#x20AC;? said Grinstead. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It should really be something to see.â&#x20AC;?

Arnprior, are you ready for an old-fashioned good time? The upcoming festivities planned to celebrate the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 150th birthday this June will offer that and so much more, says Arnprior Coun. Lynn Grinstead, chair of the 150th committee. Organizers are busily preparing for a host of weekend activities and are looking for more volunteers and support for the early summer festival. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are still looking for volunteers,â&#x20AC;? said Grinstead. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need people to dress in period costume, and if thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not your cup of tea, there are other opportunities available.â&#x20AC;? The committee and the community are behind the anniversary event 100 per cent, says Grinstead. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been so fortunate to have such a passionate team,â&#x20AC;? said Grinstead. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And with all of the service groups and others that have come forward everything is coming together great. We couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do it without them.â&#x20AC;? Social media has played a huge role in getting the word out about events. A Facebook page and other online information is drumming up support around the Valley and beyond. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There have been several people who have said â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been back to Arnprior in years and this seems like a great opportunity to go,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? said Grinstead

our activities,â&#x20AC;? said Grinstead, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Arnprior Optimist Club has very generously offered to provide kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; games down at the park,â&#x20AC;? she said. Also on Saturday, the Prior Players will deliver a 40-minute performance featuring Arnprior Mayor David Reid, McNab-Braeside Mayor Mary Campbell and Grinstead herself. The play, which focuses on local history, will be performed at the Christian Education Centre Lumberjack shows, war canoe rides and a pioneer village are also highlights of Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s activities. And entertainment will be continuous. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be lots of music on the gazebo stage,â&#x20AC;? said Grinstead. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The action on Saturday will be non-stop.â&#x20AC;? Ceremonies will be held to open and close the event and Dennis Harrington and the Heritage Band have been conďŹ rmed as performing at Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s closing ceremonies.

Diversity

We are all one in spirit: diverse, blended family EMC events - Leading up to the Ottawa Valley’s first Diversity Festival July 7 in Renfrew, Ont., organizers invite you to meet some of the many diverse individuals who make up our unique and wonderful community. A diverse and blended family is a beautiful thing. Just ask Mona Fox, of Dacre. Mona is Metis and had been married to a status Indian from Alberta. When her eldest son was an immigration officer, he married a Russian woman and brought her to Canada where they had a daughter and a son. Mona’s younger son married a Metis woman and they have four children. Mona’s husband Alan is originally from England and had two daughters in his first marriage. The eldest married a French Canadian and they have three bilingual children. The younger daughter married a Mexican and they have three sons and are tri-lingual. “We are all blended and happy that way. We love travelling and meeting ‘the

ment is proud to support local festivals and events like the Calabogie Blues & Ribfest,” said Michael Chan, Minister of Tourism, Culture and Sport. “Through Celebrate Ontario we are helping festivals and events attract broader audiences, increase visitor spending and boost local economies - ultimately creating jobs in the Greater Madawaska Township and across our great province.” Greater Madawaska Township Mayor Peter Emon acknowledged the support of the business community within the township. “Our township has partnered with Calabogie Peaks Resort and many other local businesses to help deliver one of the biggest festivals in Eastern Ontario. “The Class Axe Guitars Calabogie Blues & Ribfest is a great way for tourists to discover the many opportunities available in our region and it allows our business community to benefit from the many economic development spinoffs from this event.” In 2011, over 8,300 attended the inaugural festival and organizers are expecting an even bigger crowd during the weekend of Aug. 17-19. In addition to the live Blues music and Rib Grillers, there is an interactive Kidz Zone, overnight camping, the Calabogie Peaks Chairlift, a Blues Workshop and many other activities. Advance tickets are available online at www.calabogieblues.com.

locals’and enjoying the wonderful and exotic foods of other cultures and enjoying their music and learning about their traditions. We are open to meeting and sharing with interesting people,” says Mona. “We are saddened by the fear and dislike we see among people who want to stick only to people who are like them.” Born and raised in Fort Smith, Northwest Territories, Mona married at a young age and raised her two sons by herself. She completed her Bachelor and Master’s degrees in social work at the University of Calgary and worked for over 25 years in the federal government and lived in Kanata. She met Alan in 1983 and the couple opted for early retirement in 1995 when they moved to Dacre where he has had a home since 1974. Both Foxes had worked in social programs in Ottawa and retirement has allowed them to continue to support issues dear to their heart. “I have always been active on Aboriginal issues and have always had input on politics, policies, programs and social issues,” says Mona. She is among a team of people helping women in the slums of Nairobi, Kenya help themselves. Mona was amazed when she came across the group of women, all whose lives have been affected by HIV or AIDS, making beads from recycled magazines. She jumped on board and brought the campaign back to Canada, selling the Dorcus bead necklaces and bracelets at local craft fairs and events. Also, the Foxes had been to the Imara Health Care Centre in Africa whose founder was keeping it going without government grants or funding.The couple has raised awareness and garnered support at local Rotary clubs, including Eganville where they are members. And while Mona will be away at a family event out west for the Diversity Festival, Alan has agreed to have a booth selling the Dorcus jewelry and offering information on the initiative. Also, a display of the necklaces and bracelets and the African projects can be seen in Money Concepts window in Renfrew this month. The Foxes are an example of a diverse family reaching out to help a diverse world.

Lights, camera, action Diefenbunker, Daily Scoop part of filmmakerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dream Sherry Haaima sherry.haaima@metroland.com

EMC entertainment - A filmmaker who is living out his dream is doing so with the help of two special locations. If you look closely at scifi thriller Rulers of Darkness, the first feature length film for Manotickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dale Windle, you will see scenes set in the famed Diefenbunker Cold War Museum in Carp and at the Daily Scoop Cafe in Almonte. With filming at the Daily Scoop now complete, filming at the Diefenbunker will take place this month. With a cast and crew comprised of mainly Ottawa residents, Rulers of Darkness was written and is being produced by 58-year-old Windle, who made the courageous decision to follow his dreams in 2010 after three friends died in a head-on car crash. Windle, who was running a successful IT management consulting company that he had created in a second career after 15 years working as a professional architect, didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hesitate about making another move. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just said â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;you know what, life is precious,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? said Windle. So it was off to film school at the Millennium Film Workshop in New York City. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something I always wanted to do with my life.â&#x20AC;? Windle came back and wrote, produced, directed and filmed his first film â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a 22-minute comedy, American Idle, about lazy non-produc-

Filmaker Dale Windle, seen here lining up a shot, is filming scenes for his new sci-fi thriller Rulers of Darkness at the Diefenbunker in Carp this month. This marks his first feature length film and he has also filmed scene at Almonteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Daily Scoop Cafe. tive â&#x20AC;&#x153;workersâ&#x20AC;? taking part in a contest to be selected as the idlest person in America. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And so now here I am al-

most exactly two years later, shooting my first full-length feature film,â&#x20AC;? said Windle. He learned about the Falcon

Lake incident when he turned on the radio one day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I heard about this on the radio I was trying to

come up with an idea for a film. I was looking for an idea I could run with, and this was it,â&#x20AC;? he said.

The Falcon Lake incident is a reported unidentified flying object encounter near Falcon Lake, Manitoba, claimed to have occurred on May 20, 1967 by Stefan Michalak. He described the movie, with lead actors Olivier Surprenant and Rachel Cairns, as â&#x20AC;&#x153;fairly easy to makeâ&#x20AC;? and said he has received nothing but co-operation from officials at the Diefenbunker and owners and staff at the Daily Scoop CafĂŠ. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everybodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just been fantastic,â&#x20AC;? says Windle. A fabulous addition to the cast has been Duke Redbird, an elder in the Saugeen Ojibway community who plays a wisdom keeper in the movie. Meeting the people and visiting the location are part of what Windle loves most about his work. He said that while he has a history of success in several fields, he went into these work areas out of necessity, not passion. As a teenager, he started making films with his Dadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s super 8mm camera, even winning awards and accolades from the local arts community. However, his father balked at filmmaking as a career and insisted on a professional career. Windle says his is a classic story of finally pursuing your dreams, or as he puts it: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s never too late to have a happy childhood. And the Daily Scoop CafĂŠ and the Diefenbunker are now part of that dream. Visit www.RulersofDarknessMovie.com for details.

From the Ottawa to the Mississippi: Galilee Centre priest says farewell

Photo by SHERRY HAAIMA

After three years at the Galilee Centre in Arnprior, Rev. Jack Lau, an Oblate father, has been reassigned to the town of Godfrey, Illinois, to the banks of the Mississippi River. In Illinois, Lau will join the Regional Novitiate, where men spend one year discerning their vocation to become a vowed missionary Oblate.

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; When Rev. Jack Lau drives away from the Galilee Centre in a few weeks, he will be taking a piece of Arnprior with him. And undoubtedly, Father Jack, as heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s known to most, has left his mark on Arnprior and Galilee. From the peace pole at Galileeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s front door to the new and rejuvenated programs and the new crop of yoga enthusiasts inspired by the Oblates Missionary priest who has been at Galilee for the past three years, his work will continue to be of benefit for years to come. Lau will deliver his last interpretive mass Saturday of the May long weekend and celebrate and say some goodbyes at a pot-luck at his house

afterwards. His new assignment will bring him to the town of Godfrey, Illinois, to the banks of the Mississippi River and a place not unlike the Galilee Centre on the Ottawa River. Getting ready to say his goodbyes has been a bit overwhelming, says Lau, especially since he found a special home in Arnprior. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The people have been very welcoming,â&#x20AC;? says Lau. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They really appreciated having a priest here at Galilee.â&#x20AC;? Lau also led mass each Sunday at the University of Ottawa â&#x20AC;&#x201C; so the goodbyes will stretch beyond Arnprior and surrounding area. The hospitality he has experienced and the relationships he has made extend beyond those in the Galilee and

church community. And the connections he has made with people here will stay with him. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are many ways to live out church and I allow people to do so in a variety of ways, says Lau. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not necessarily the building, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the people gathered,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all so busy and we get tired,â&#x20AC;? says Lau. But he has encouraged those around him to make time for God and for each other. Coming from an ashram in India to the Town of Arnprior was more than just a huge geographic change for Lau. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I went from a life of five to seven hours a day in the temple â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a life that was very regular â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to a life that has very little structure and where structure is there I had to put it there myself.â&#x20AC;? Lau says some people didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what to think at first when he arrived, with the orange prayer shawl he is rarely seen without. The shawl, given to him in India where he lived in a Christian Oblate Ashram/ Monastery, signifies simplicity and celibacy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In time, they got to know who I was, and that it was just a part of who I was,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t all have to fit into the same box,â&#x20AC;? says Lau. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t all have to talk and present our feelings in the same way.â&#x20AC;?

Being at the Galilee Centre presented a unique opportunity, says Lau. And as news of his departure spreads, he is already surprised by the number of people coming forward to say goodbye and let him know he made a difference. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People were able to come here and share their stories and knew it was a place of confidentiality that was a bit removed from their neighbours and the church,â&#x20AC;? he says. From baptisms to funerals, to teaching yoga and leading retreats, getting to know people and sharing their experiences has been a wonderful thing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really an amazing experience when people let you into their lives,â&#x20AC;? says Lau. In Illinois, Lau will join the Regional Novitiate, where men spend one year discerning their vocation to become a vowed missionary Oblate. He is excited about the opportunity to share the history and teachings of St. Eugene de Mazenod and the Oblates.

4-H is popular in West Carleton once again EMC news - A new journey has begun again for the West Carleton 4-H Community Club with our ďŹ rst meeting being held on Tuesday April 24 at the Galetta Community Centre. We kicked things off with Bruce Hudson, our leader, welcoming everyone. As we have such a large club this year we have a number of dedicated leaders: Bruce and Liz Hudson, Rick Cummings, Leah Richardson-Dean, Jean Sullivan, Annette Cousins and Peter Kaiser. The leaders then congratulated some of our fellow 4-Hers that competed in the various 4-H Competitions at the Ottawa Valley Farm Show this past March. We have a number of new members this year so to get to know everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s names one at a time everyone had a turn to state their name, grade and some of their hobbies. With close to 50 club members it is going to be a real test for the leaders to remember everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name. The West Carleton Community Club welcomes members from 9-21 years old with projects like ďŹ eld crops, beef heifers or dairy heifers. Bruce went over the forms with us and ensured that everyone was aware of the 4 â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;sâ&#x20AC;?...Head, Heart, Hands and Health. We all stood and recited the 4-H pledge then Bruce went over proper parliamentary procedure with us. Elections for the club executive were con-

ducted by process of nominating members then voting by secret ballot. This year Katie Eastman was elected club president, Kerin Hudson was elected vice-president, Robyn Rochon-Kaiser was elected scretary and Kaitlin Cavanagh was elected press reporter. It was then time to do some judging. Four bowls of potato chips were judged by some of the older club members. This showed the younger members how to go about judging a class and some key words and how to give your reasons. Kendra Cavanagh has done a lot of judging so she gave the ofďŹ cial reasons and explained her opinion of her placings. Every year the members have come to expect the leaders to come up with something interesting for the club to work on in groups and to judge. This year was no exception! I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s idea this was. We were divided into four groups and each group was given a tray with a cucumber, a pepper, toothpicks and a wide variety of pickles. The challenge was to make a farm scene using all the pickles with the 4-H lLogo somehow incorporated into it. Farmers, tractors, cows, haylage, barns, ďŹ elds, fences and many more things were creatively made out of our vegetables and pickles. The imagination and artistry were simply amazing. After 25 minutes of hard core cutting and constructing the ofďŹ cial

New 4-H executive

judging took place. Two of our leaders Rick and Annette judged our creations and Annette gave the ofďŹ cial reasons. They looked for neatness, that all types of pickles were used, that the 4-H logo was represented and a clear presentation. After the farms were judged refreshments were served and the meeting was brought to an end. We look forward to the May meeting at the Grundyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s NBG Polled Herefords in North Gower.

West Carleton Review EMC - Thursday, May 3, 2012 35


Ottawa realtor Paul Rushforth sometimes senses a hesitation in homeowners who’d like to sell their homes. They’re worried that potential buyers are afraid that real estate prices are about to fall, just as they have fallen, drastically, over the past few years in the United States.

R0011378028

Real Estate Values on the Rise

Fashions shine at Kinburn show

“I tell them there’s really very little to worry about,” Rushforth says. “Especially in Ottawa, we don’t really have a real estate bubble. In nearly six decades, we’ve only seen prices go down four times—and I personally expect prices to continue increasing.” Vancouver and Toronto may have real estate bubbles, especially in the condo market, but that’s not true of Ottawa, Rushforth says. “I actually expect that five years from now, people will be wishing they had bought in 2012.” You can sell your house for top dollar now, he says. But to squeeze full value from your home, you need to put a little time and money into sprucing your property up. “A modest amount of money and a little perspiration can give your house a huge boost in selling price, something my clients have shown time and time again.”

Here are Rushforth’s top tips on giving a home more appeal: R0011374577

x

Paint: Rushforth calls this “the greatest bang for your buck!”

x

Lighting: you can easily pick up an inexpensive chandelier or dome lights at a big box store.

x

Kitchens: new modern backsplash and countertop and new hardware on cabinet doors.

x

x

Bathrooms: fresh paint, new ceramic tiles and new lighting, will bring a dated bathroom back to life. Floors: refinish scratched hardwood floor, replace soiled carpets, and replace linoleum with ceramic tiles.

“Without breaking the bank, you can usually improve your house far more than you first expected,” he says. “The key is to do things conservatively and wisely—to do a lot yourself, to use lower-end fixes, and barter and trade where you can.” Rushforth has seen these strategies work time after time—in his real estate practice, and also in the television show All For Nothing?, which he hosts with designer Penny Southam. Each week, two household compete to see who can get the greatest increase in house value while spending essentially nothing. “The homeowners get better than a ten-to-one return,” Rushforth says. “The average home increases in value by $27,000 with expenses of only $2,600.” To find out how you can be on ALL FOR NOTHING?, contact Sonja via email at sonja@mountainroad.ca, phone 613-237-4447 or visit allfornothingtv.ca.

The event drew a good crowd and offered a glimpse of some wonderful clothes. Model Normal Hamilton (bottom left) shows off a comfortably two-piece outfit that is brightened up with a scarf.

Farmersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Market opens Mint adds flavour to May 6 at Brewer Park your soups, cookies Seventh season for Ottawa Farmersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Market EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; There may not be any stickhandling, body checking or sudden-death overtime, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the season opener weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been waiting for. On Sunday, May 6 the Ottawa Farmersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Market opens its seventh season at the marketâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new location at Brewer Park. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With lots of green space, picnic tables under a canopy of trees, playgrounds and biking paths, Brewer Park will be a very dynamic outdoor venue, said Ottawa Farmers` Market association president, Robin Turner. It will be a great family destination with great food and lots of outdoor activities.â&#x20AC;? The Ottawa Farmersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Market has grown to over 100 vendors of the best locally-grown and locally-made food, farm products, arts and crafts from 100 kilometres of Ottawa. The market boasts some of the Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s favourite artisans â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Pascaleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ice Cream, Art-IsIn Bakery, Flatbread Pizza and the Hot Potato Company, not to mention more Savour Ottawa certified growers than any other market. The early spring line-up includes rhubarb, asparagus, herbs and greens, fresh cheese,

eggs, honey, maple syrup, grass-fed beef, heritage pork, spring lamb and game. This year, the Ottawa Farmersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Market is also expanding to offer culinary events to showcase the seasonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s freshest ingredients. The market will be hosting local chefs, artisans and organizations influencing the local food movement. Local chefs will provide recipes, cooking demonstrations and samples at the market while local artisans will show visitors the tips and tricks of the trade. While many are sad to see the Ottawa Farmersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Market leave Lansdowne Park, with the new location, favourite vendors and new ones, and a host of new and engaging events, the market will be a highlight of the summer. The market is located at Brewer Park on Sloan Avenue just south of Sunnyside across from Carleton University.

EMC lifestyle - Mint is one of the most versatile herbs for the kitchen. It can be used in soups, salads, sauces, jellies, desserts and even cookies. It can be used to make either hot or iced tea, yet its flavor also complements cooked lamb and trout. You can chop the leaves, add them to melted butter, and drizzle the sauce over hot, cooked new potatoes for an old-fashioned English dish. This weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recipe appeared in my column several years ago and was so popular that I wanted to pass it along to anyone who may have missed it. It makes a cookie thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s similar to shortbread, but with the flavor of fresh mint. It will be another month or so before the new mint is ready to pick. Look for it in late May or early June at farmersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; markets, or ask friends and neighbors if they have some in their gardens. To make these cookies, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll need about 12 stems of mint with full-grown leaves. GARDEN MINT COOKIES

In another bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt. Add 1/3 of the dry ingredients to the creamed mixture, and stir well. Add half of the milk, and stir again. Repeat with another 1/3 of the dry ingredients and the rest of the milk. Stir the mint into the cookie batter, then add the last of the flour mixture. Mix well.

EMC news - Despite some abnormally warm weather in March, resulting in an early season, Ontario maple syrup producers have a high quality product for sale to consumers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The maple season varied throughout the different regions of Ontario,â&#x20AC;? said Ray Bonenberg, president of the Ontario Maple Syrup Producersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Association. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As was typical of most years, the regional weather differed greatly,â&#x20AC;? said Bonenberg. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This meant that some producers in cooler parts of Ontario were still making syrup while others were finished.â&#x20AC;? Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s earlier and shorter season was similar to that experienced across almost all of the maple syrup production regions of Canada and the United States. Significant interest was shown by the media and many consumers about the effects of the warm weather. For more information, visit www.ontariomaple.com.

Mother had mastered â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;the lookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Many reasons to EMC Lifestyle - My sister Audrey said Mother had what she called â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;the lookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. She said it was worse than a slap on the side of the head. It didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take me long to figure out what she meant after I was subjected to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;the lookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; when I committed a minor act of disobedience in front of a neighbour. She had dropped in for tea one afternoon. All I did was take the first cookie off the plate, which I learned very quickly, was just not done until the guest was first served. I got â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;the lookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, and quickly put the cookie back on the plate, which earned me another â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;lookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;! I was then faced with the problem of trying to figure out how to correct my social error, so I decided the best thing to do was re-take the same cookie and get out of there. Which I did, and then I ran out of the house, and practically swallowed it whole as I passed through the summer kitchen. Mother used â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;the lookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; a lot when we went to church. If any one of us five kids, squirmed too much for her liking, we got â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;the lookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, and if that didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work, it was followed by a sharp jab on the knee. Mother was able to accomplish the jab without taking her eyes off the pulpit, which always amazed me. I could never figure out how she knew who was acting up without even looking our way!

This confirmed for me what Audrey once said: Mother had eyes in the back of her head. Although I was never able to actually see that she had an extra set of eyes under her thick black hair. My brother Emerson said her jabs were sharp as a knife. There was never any comment with â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;the lookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. It was enough to send the message of her disapproval. And it was often directed towards Father, who paid absolutely no attention at all to it. Mother could never get used to Father cooling his tea in his saucer. And although he did it almost every meal, and as Audrey said, she should have been used to it by now, Mother would send him â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;the lookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, as soon as he tipped the tea out, and then carefully lift the saucer to his lips, often giving it a few soft puffs of air first.

her eyes open herself during Grace to see one of us breaking this cardinal rule! Audrey reminded Emerson that Mother could see things when no one else could! Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s whole face changed when she was giving â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;the lookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. She had snapping brown eyes, and she would bring them down to thin slits, and even though you could barely see the pupils, they could bore right through you. Her eyebrows came together, and formed a straight line across her forehead. Sometimes she would purse her lips as if getting read to say something, but she didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need to utter a word. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The lookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; was enough. Mother had to be close to you to administer her next form of reprimand if â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;the lookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work. She wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think twice of giving the brothers a sharp swat on the side of their head. Sometimes it hit the ear dead-on. Emerson said when that happened; his ears rang for three days. Audrey said he was exaggerating. For reasons I was never

9[d^eĂ&#x2020; @[YZfAgf WK$QQXDO

          

able to figure out, Audrey and I were subjected only to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;the lookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. I could count on one hand the number of times I took a slap on the ear. That probably had more to do with the fact that my sister and I rarely got into serious trouble. And we certainly never came to blows like the three brothers did. My older and much wiser sister said girls were expected to act like ladies ... that meant good manners, gentle behaviour, and certainly never stoop to physical attacks unless absolutely necessary. And as my sister got older, she started to develop â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;the lookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;just like Mother. My three brothers completely ignored her, knowing full well she would have met her match if she had to resort to slapping them on the side of their head if â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;the lookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work. I tried â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;the lookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; on Emerson once. He managed to put me in the ice part of the ice box one day, almost giving me a heart attack. He was too big for me to cuff him on the side of the head when he let me out, so I gave him what I considered my most hateful â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;lookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. He ran from the house laughing his head off. I figured I had a long way to go before I mastered â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;the lookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; like Mother and my sister Audrey.

EMC lifestyle - As communication chair for this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mississippi Mills Relay for Life, (scheduled for June 8 in Almonteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Gemmill Park), Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had the privilege to talk with many people about their personal journeys with cancer and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Why they Relay for Life?â&#x20AC;? When I listen to their stories, I am humbled by the courage and positive attitude of the survivors, and by the love and energy of the team members and all the hard work they are doing to raise funds and awareness for Cancer Research. The Mississippi Mills Relay for Life already has over 20 teams entered in this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inaugural overnight event, and that number increases daily. We have surpassed our first goal of 15 teams, and with 6 weeks to go, there are some teams yet to enter. The amazing thing is, there are stories from every team, from every Relay for Life, from communities across the country and each story is unique and powerful, but the combined efforts and the money thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s raised to fund Cancer Research is truly astounding. Thanks to Susan TomacBrennan (team captain of â&#x20AC;&#x153;For the love of Didoâ&#x20AC;?) for sharing hers: â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you see a family member, friend or colleague battling cancer, or even worse

if you lose one of them, you feel weak, you struggle to understand their suffering, have feelings of guilt because you are healthy and living a normal life, but most of all you ask yourself â&#x20AC;&#x153;what can I do to make it betterâ&#x20AC;? for them? When a child falls and hurts themselves, you kiss it â&#x20AC;&#x153;and make it betterâ&#x20AC;?. You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t kiss Cancer and make it go away but you can involve and educate and get the word out to as many people as you can to assure them they can do something - pledges help fund support programs while patients are living with Cancer â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and pledges help fund research to detect this monster faster and find better ways to deliver treatment with less severe side effects, and research will find a cure! Cancer is our generations â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Black Plagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it will touch every single person in some way so it should be our mission to involve as many people as we can. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I Relay to honour the memory of those close to my heart who have lost their war and those who are fighting their battle now because I know I can make a difference. I have personally lost far too many family and friends aging from 19 to 50 years old â&#x20AC;&#x201C; far, far too young â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but Cancer doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t discriminate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our team â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;For the Love of Didoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; in memory of Dianne Hourigan, was an easy one to organize. She was the most positive, humorous and bravest soul one could imagine, and our team rallied together to honour her. Most of our team are colleagues of Dianneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s from working with her at Digital and we are like children planning the run, laughing and remembering her with love and admiration. We have done very well so far with pledges and fundraisers and our long-time Digital colleagues, friends and families have embraced our team goal wholeheartedly. We have two team members, who are Cancer Survivors so our group is absolutely amazing. Dianne is fondly remembered by many family and friends in Almonte, as she grew up here. She was 53 when she ended her eight-year battle with cancer last year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The way I look at it is: â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Relay for Life is running for oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life â&#x20AC;&#x201C; letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s run for them and with them, and show them all that they are not alone and we will make it better, one step at a time.â&#x20AC;?

American ambassador enjoyed visit to Valley baseball bat maker By JEFF MAGUIRE

EMC news - The â&#x20AC;&#x153;Boys of Summerâ&#x20AC;? now have a vested interest in one Ottawa Valley town and last week the United States ambassador to Canada fulfilled a dream when he visited the factory that manufactures baseball bats used by more than 90 Major League players. David Jacobson, a native of Chicago, proudly wore a Chicago Cubsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; cap (heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a Cubs die-hard) as he took a tour of Sam Bat on Monday, April 23. The company relocated to the North Industrial Park in Carleton Place from OttawaGatineau last November and plans to expand production to include several maple wood product lines. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is like going to Mecca,â&#x20AC;? a beaming Jacobson said as he met Sam Bat founder Sam Holman and was given a personal tour of the Industrial Avenue production facility. Leading the way were Sam Bat President Arlene Anderson and her husband Jim along with their two partners in the venture. Since 2007 Sam Bat has been owned by the Andersons, who have 50 per cent of the company along with founder Holman and Paul Balharrie. The corporation was founded by Holman, inventor of the patented â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sam Batâ&#x20AC;?, the first

approved maple wood bat for the Major Leagues. The company began operations in 1997 and has grown exponentially from its origins in Holmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s garage to larger premises in Gatineau, Quebec and now the more efficient Carleton Place plant. Jim says last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s move to the Carleton Place industrial complex represents the biggest step yet in the evolution of Sam Bat. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The plant has a more efficient layout. It is a step forward for us despite being a smaller facility than the one we were using in Gatineau,â&#x20AC;? he outlines. The firmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s offices were previously located on Beech St. in Ottawa. Because of the timing of the move the company is still trying to get its feet firmly set in the batterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s box, so to speak! â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are still fine-tuning,â&#x20AC;? Arlene says, noting there isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t yet a sign on the front of the building which previously housed Bodeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Custom Cabinets Ltd. The cabinet maker opted for larger premises in Arnprior. Among the many Major Leaguers who prefer Sam Batâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s product to those of more than 30 competitors is Detroit Tigersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; slugger Miguel Cabrera. Last season Cabrera led all hitters in baseball in batting

United States Ambassador to Canada David Jacobson recently visited Sam Bat in Carleton Place. The firm manufactures maple wood baseball bats used by some 90 Major League players. Here the ambassador shoulders a model which was specially crafted and presented to him.

Also among the many Big League players who exclusively use Sam Bats are Milwaukee Brewersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; stars Ryan Braun and Rickie Weeks, Arizona Diamondbacksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; outfielder Justin Upton, Travis Hafner, a designated hitter for Cleveland Indians and Colorado Rockiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; power hitting outfielder Carlos Gonzalez. The ambassador was clearly thrilled when company founder Holman handed him a bat that is destined for use

by Cubsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; slugger Alfonso Soriano. In Chicago last season Soriano powered 26 home runs and drove in 88 for Jacobsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heroes. The special visitor told the Andersons that if they check their records they will find his name among past customers. Jacobson, a former Chicago corporate lawyer whose previous job was in the White House (he was a special assistant to U.S. President Barack Obama in the area of personnel), is a long-time fan of Sam Bat. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I bought two of your bats a few years ago, one for my son

and the other for his coach.â&#x20AC;? Jacobsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s son Jeremy, now a student at Montrealâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s McGill University, was playing high school baseball at the time. The ambassador and his wife Julie also have a daughter Wynne, an Ottawa jewellery designer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I started by doing research (on wood types) at the Ottawa Public Library,â&#x20AC;? the company founder says with a chuckle. His research was spurred on by Bill MacKenzie, then a scout for Colorado Rockies, who presented Holman with a challenge. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just breaking too many bats. Do you think you could come up with an answer to that,â&#x20AC;? MacKenzie inquired. Holman took a crash course on baseball bats. He says his library reading list included The Physics of Baseball, The Rules of Major League Baseball and 219 Patents on Baseball Bats, not to mention The Trees of Canada. His first experiments were with ironwood located at his cottage. But eventually his knowledge base grew to the point where he settled on maple, a wood that symbolizes Canada. Holman says living in Ottawa is a huge advantage for a bat maker. The city is home to the Wood Council, the Canadian Forest Research Centre

along with two universities and numerous libraries including the Canadian Patent Library. Surrounding Ottawa is what he calls â&#x20AC;&#x153;the richest deciduous forest in North America.â&#x20AC;? Holmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s original goal was to introduce a maple wood bat to the Major Leagues. He found that the prototype was tougher and lasted longer than traditional ash bats. The now familiar Sam Bat logo, featuring what else but a real Bat (of the airborne variety) was designed by his brother, artist Nathan Holman. The inventor originally went to players with the former Ottawa Lynx of the Class AAA International League, hoping to sell them on his bat. After the pros had tested the product (Lynx were once the Montreal Exposâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; top affiliate) he fine-tuned the design, with particular emphasis on the bat handle which, at first, didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t impress the Ottawa players. He told the embassy guests the first person to hit a home run with a Sam Bat during a professional game was former Major League outfielder Fernando Seguignol. The latter made his debut with the now defunct Expos in 1998. First though he spent considerable time with the Lynx after being traded to Montreal by the New York Yankees in 1995.

that can fly. But in football everybody needs to rely on everybody else on the field. Even a speedy linebacker needs someone in front of him (throwing tackles).â&#x20AC;? Teams play eight regular season games, including four at home on the West Carleton Secondary School field. Leagues include 15 clubs, 12 of which are from Ottawa, so the driving isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t too bad. One team travelled to Cornwall for a game last year, but in McArdleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s estimation that was the only time a time was forced to travel that far. Although the Wolverines usually finish well back of the city teams, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve often won the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Câ&#x20AC;&#x2122; division playoffs. McArdle added that players are rarely cut during â&#x20AC;&#x153;tryoutsâ&#x20AC;? but if it did happen, parents again would see a full refund. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some clubs charge an administrative fee, but we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t.â&#x20AC;? The West Carleton Wolverines is a well established club, dating back to 1993. The focus, McArdle insists, is on fun. Football has no more and no fewer injuries than hockey; at times, just like in hockey, concussions have occurred. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We really try to make it fun for kids,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our motto is â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a place for every child.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Regular season begins in late July and runs into October. Coaches try to be accommodating to kids that are involved in hockey, since there is a slight overlap. Equipment fitting is passed, but McArdle said any kid who wants to join and do so right up to July.

POLICE

Your Community Newspaper

Calls to police do make a difference EMC news - Patrol officers in the West Carleton area responded to 40 general calls for service from the public for the reporting period of April 15 to April 21. In addition to the calls for service, patrol officers are also proactively enforcing the Highway Traffic laws, responding to false 9-1-1 and alarm calls, and assisting the Ottawa Fire, Paramedics and By-law services. CALLING 911

Thanks to a complainant who picked up on a suspicious incident and took action by calling 911—police were able to stop two young males from driving away impaired and perhaps becoming involved in a potential accident. Just before 7 p.m. on Saturday, April 21, a lone male was observed sitting inside of a parked vehicle in behind a shopping plaza at 1112 March Rd. Aware of the fact that all of the stores in the plaza were closed for the day the complainant got the sense that something suspicious was going on and that it needed to be investigated. Because the complainant acted on his suspicions in a timely fashion police officers were able to intercept the vehicle before the driver decided to leave. Upon investigation it was discovered that there were two young males, 17 and 24 years-ofage, sitting inside of the smoked filled cabin flying high on weed and slowly getting stoned. Under the Criminal Code of Canada impaired driving means driving a car, truck, boat, snowmobile, aircraft, train or other motor vehicle when the ability to operate the vehicle is impaired by alcohol or drugs. Remember, you are the eyes and ears in the community and the actions you take can make a real difference in the community. FOUND ITEM — CALL POLICE TO CLAIM

If anyone misplaced a purple handbag at the Port of Call Marina on Vance’s Side Road please give the Ottawa Police Service a call to claim your lost article. The handbag contained the following items: a zip lock bag filled with a white powdery substance believed to be cocaine; a broken glass bong; and a metal spoon. Anyone considering on claiming these recovered items will be asked to present some valid identification and to provide a description of the lost items to the officer in charge. DOWN TO THE ONESIES AND TWOSIES DEER

Ottawa Police Service sixteen ended with only a single deer collision being reported in the Rideau-Goulbourn ward and the total deer collision count standing at 30 to 10 in favor of Rideau-Goulbourn. This time last year the same thing happened where only a single deer collision was reported in the Rideau-Goulbourn ward; however, the total count stood at 50 t0 18. To get a sense on where these deer collisions are stacking up in rural east and west Ottawa why not head on over to the Manotick neighbourhood watch website to get a firsthand look: www.manotickneighbourhoodwatch.com. BREAK AND ENTER

Sometime between the fall of 2011 and April 15 unidentified culprits broke into a locked tool shed and attempted to force their way into a cottage that is located on an island in Fitzroy Harbour. The plywood boards that covered the windows and doors were able to repel the culprits attack; however, the shed door, which was secured with a single padlock and hasp, easily succumbed to the force of a boot kick. Nothing was stolen from inside of the shed even through it contained some tools and boating equipment, and witnesses reported observing, on a frequent basis, unidentified people walking around the island and hearing unusual banging noises. Sometime at around 2 a.m. on April 17 a group of suspected teens broke into a vacant residence under renovations and used it as a temporary hideout. Based on the evidence the unidentified culprits used a concrete block to smash in a side door window to gain entry into the house. Nothing was taken from the house or left behind. According to the homeowner, this was the second B&E into the house. The first incident occurred on Apr. 5 but it was never reported to police and the same side door was used to gain entry into the house. A witness reported observing a group of about five youths between the ages of 17 to 19 years of age roaming the streets at around 2 a.m., yelling and screeming.

A black GMC pickup truck was captured on surveillance camera crashing through a locked front gate belonging to Platinum Construction and driving around the yard for unknown reasons on Reis Road April 21. The truck remained inside of the compound for about sixteen seconds before leaving at a high rate of speed. The truck was noted to be missing its tailgate. THEFT

A Kubota tractor and a trailer were stolen from the GP Service Station Maintenance company on Cardevco Road sometime between Friday, April 13 at around 5 p.m. and Sunday, April 15 at around 2:30 p.m. The unidentified culprits forced their way into the gated compound by breaking off the hinges that held together sections of the wire fencing. The Kubota tractor was described as orange in colour with a set of forks attached in the front and the trailer was a flat bed type trailer that was black in colour and approx. 18-feet long. An unidentified culprit had reportedly cut down several pine trees that had been grow-

THEFT FROM VEHICLE

A pickup truck that was left unlocked and parked inside of a garage that had been left wide open was rummaged through by an unidentified culprit sometime during the overnight hours on Wednesday, April 18 on Campbell Reid Court. Nothing from inside of the vehicle was taken; however, the culprit broke into a locked tool box and stole several tools. Reported stolen were three Stihl chainsaws, three Hitachi nail guns and several batteries and chargers. MAKE THE RIGHT CALL

The Centre is a “community problem-solving centre” and is responsible for the delivery of the Ottawa Police crime prevention programs.

Just before 2 a.m. on Tuesday morning (April 17) police received a call stating that a group of kids were overheard screaming and yelling into the night near the old dairy bar business on Dunrobin Rd.
