Terry Fox comes to the Bay Constance Bay prepares to host first run this September ARMITAGE HALL


SWAMPFEST Swampfest will return to the Kinburn Community Centre from Aug. 26 to 28.


Constance Bay will host its first Terry Fox Run on Sept. 18, offering three different routes for those helping to continue Terry’s legacy. The route begins and ends at the Constance and Buckham’s Bay Community Centre, and registration starts at 8:30 a.m. and remains open until 1:30 p.m. The run itself will take place between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. A five-kilometre and 10-kilometre run will be set up along roads in Constance Bay for runners or those on wheels. Another five-kilometre route for runners only will weave through the Torbolton Forest. Organizers Bob Dupuis and his wife Linda Cassidy have been participating in the Terry Fox Run for years, heading all the way to Stittsville to join a run. “I kept saying, ‘Why don’t we have one in the Bay?’” Dupuis said. “Why do people on the outskirts have to travel so bloody far? Let’s do something that’s convenient for everyone in the area.” Dupuis said he hopes people from all over West Carleton will participate in the upcoming run. Pledge sheets are available at various locations, including the Dunrobin post office, the Royal Canadian Legion in Constance Bay, the Constance and Buckham’s Bay Community Centre, the Heart and Soul Cafe in Dunrobin and the Toronto Dominion Bank.

The council chamber within the West Carleton Community Complex located at 5670 Carp Rd. would be renamed Dr. Roland Armitage Hall if council approves the proposal.

The Lighthouse shines on COURTNEY SYMONS

“I love it. It’s like you’re working with family. You don’t see that in the city” Mohamed Saad

The Lighthouse became an essential part of the town, and El-Chantiry remained owner for 22 years. “We were open seven days a week, we never closed,” he said. “Even on Christmas day we’d open for a few hours for people to come in for free drinks and spend some time together.” But it wasn’t only Constance Bay residents who frequented the Lighthouse – people came from all over to experience what soon became known as “the unofficial town hall of Constance Bay.” “We used to invite politicians for breakfast meetings,” El-Chantiry said, before he even entered politics

Did you know that working smoke alarms can cut your chances of dying in a fire by 50 per cent? In Ontario, having working smoke alarms is not only a good idea -- it’s the law. Ottawa Fire Services recommends you install a smoke alarm on every level of your home, and outside your sleeping areas. Test your smoke alarms every month and change the batteries twice a year when you change your clocks. A working smoke alarm and a home fire escape plan will significantly increase your chances of surviving a fire.

himself. “Federal, provincial politicians, they’ve all been there.” Guests have included Bob Chiarelli, Jim Watson and Peter Clark. Apparently it is Ottawa Chief of Police Vern White’s favourite place to go for breakfast, and he visits every couple of weeks. When El-Chantiry entered city politics for the first time in 2003, he could still be found in the Lighthouse every day. “You could come in and talk to your counselor without an appointment or anything,” he said. But as he continued his political career, El-Chantiry found he had less and less time to spend at the Lighthouse, and too much of the workload fell on his wife, Maha. Another local restaurateur, Mohamed Saad, had shown an interest in the Lighthouse for some time. He’d owned a restaurant called Happy Times in the area, and had moved it around to various locations in Carp and Fitzroy Harbour. He really wanted to return to the Bay, and kept asking El-Chantiry if the Lighthouse was for sale. “In real estate, they say ‘location, location, location,’” El-Chantiry said. “In the restaurant business, we say ‘timing, timing, timing.’ In May of 2010, I was considering running for city council again, and I was really tired. I thought, maybe it was the

right time to sell it.” After 22 years, El-Chantiry passed the torch to a new family – Mohamed (but everyone calls him Mike), his wife Ahlam and their five-year-old daughter Amani. The restaurant officially changed hands on Aug. 16, 2010, almost exactly one year ago. Young Amani’s birthday falls on Aug. 23, so the Saad’s first order of business was to have a big birthday party for her, as well as a bit of a housewarming for their new venture. “She loves it here,” Saad said of his daughter. “Everybody loves her, and she knows all the customers.” She celebrated another birthday with a party at the Lighthouse this Aug. 23, in what is becoming a tradition. Saad works long days, seven days a week, but he said that his customers are always willing to help out. “If you’re busy, you don’t even ask, they jump up to help you pick up the dishes,” he said. “I love it. It’s like you’re working with family. You don’t see that in the city.” Although El-Chantiry no longer owns the business, he has far from disappeared. You can still spot him enjoying the Lighthouse’s famous pizza every now and again, and Maha visits almost every week. LIGHTHOUSE, see 4

Before West Carleton-March Coun. Eli El-Chantiry delved into politics, he was known by the people of Constance Bay as the owner of the Lighthouse restaurant; a meeting place that has been around since 1928. El-Chantiry purchased the business in 1988. “A friend of mine had just moved to Constance Bay,” he said. “She invited me for the weekend and I loved the area, it just reminded me so much of the place where I grew up,” in Lebanon. “The horses, the hay fields, the corn fields, it looked like home. I really fell in love with the place.” At the time, the Lighthouse was old, small and unpopular – but all that changed quickly as El-Chantiry and his wife Maha began to redefine the the business. El-Chantiry decided that a restaurant called the Lighthouse should have its namesake mounted on the roof. A local architect designed a lighthouse, but no one could figure out how to get it onto the roof. They had to call in a crane from Arnprior to help. In 1995, El-Chantiry decided to double the size of the building, expanding the dining area in back and the grocery up front. They had a post office, a lotto booth, and were the first place in Constance Bay to host an ATM machine so that residents didn’t have to travel into the city to go to the bank.

The Lighthouse has become a fixture in Constance Bay, operating for 83 years. member when on every corner there was a grocery store, a confectionary store, a shoemaker, and a fish and chips store. All that has disappeared now. Nobody does it on a small scale anymore, it’s all big stores.” That’s why he’s been a customer at the Lighthouse and Saad’s Happy Times for over a decade. It has been said that the Light-

house is not only a restaurant, but an institution; a fixture at 655 Bayview Dr. in Constance Bay for 83 years. “I’m happy I found a family who loves Constance Bay as much as I do,” El-Chantiry said of the Saads. Saad said he is happy as well, and plans on staying put. “I’m not going anywhere,” he said.

“He still helps,” Saad said of El-Chantiry. “Every time I need him, I ask and he never says no. He still loves it. I call him up and say, ‘I need your help, can you cover for me this Sunday morning,?’and he says yes.” Whenever El-Chantiry visits the Lighthouse for a meal, he finds that old habits die hard. “I was sitting with a friend and she dropped a knife, and I said, ‘No problem, I’ll get you another one.’ Some instincts just don’t go away,” he said. “I still feel like it’s a part of me.” The Lighthouse’s menu includes an eclectic mix of Italian and Chinese food, plus all kinds of breakfast specials. Saad is hard-pressed to pick a favourite, because he created the menu himself. “Whatever I like, I make,” he said. But there is something about the pizza, however. Saad won an award for his pizza in 2004 when he owned Happy Days in Constance Bay, and he has brought that prize-winning recipe with him to the Lighthouse. Monte Pickard, a regular of the Lighthouse who has tracked Saad’s career and menu since his start in the restaurant business, has a hankering for another classic on their menu. “Big spaghetti,” he said as he settled in for a mid-day meal. Pickard used to live in Constance Bay and has since moved to Perth, but makes a point of coming back to visit every chance he gets. “I’m 70, so I’ve been around awhile,” Pickard said. “I re-

Constance Bay hosts first Terry Fox Run TERRY FOX RUN, from 1 Donations can be collected in advance, or participants can show up the morning of the event to register and make a donation to the Terry Fox Foundation, however big or small. “When Terry Fox started his run, he said, ‘If I got a dollar from every person across Canada, that would be $30 million,’” Dupuis recalled. That’s why Dupuis will be satisfied with anything participants are willing to give, with no minimum or maximum donation requirements. If runners would like to register in advance, they can visit, or wait until Sept. 18 and register at the community centre. Until then, Dupuis and Cassidy will continue tying up all the loose ends. They have already walked and measured

the routes; the two paths going along the road will both pass by the Lighthouse restaurant on Bayview Drive. For the fivekilometre run, it is the halfway point telling you turn around; for the 10-kilometre, you keep going. Water stations will be set up throughout the course, and high school students from the area have already volunteered to man the stations. This is the first run Dupuis has organized. Having been president of the local Legion in the past, he’s run his fair share of events, but “this is a whole new ball game,” he said. Dupuis has taught seniors computer skills for several years, beginning his lessons in Kanata. But, similar to his reasoning for organizing a Terry Fox run in Constance Bay, he wanted to bring the service closer to his own community.

He established a program with the City of Ottawa’s parks and recreation that now operates out of the Kinburn Community Centre. “I wanted to give back to the community something that I had gotten out of it,” he said. Most pieces have fallen into place, but Dupuis said they could always use more volunteers and, of course, participants. “The more Terry Fox runs there are, the more people who will participate, and the more research is done for cancer,” he said. Eighty-five cents of every dollar raised by the Terry Fox Foundation goes towards cancer research. To learn more about or volunteer for Constance Bay’s first Terry Fox Run on Sept. 18, contact Bob Dupuis or Linda Cassidy at 613-832-2403.

Sports company donates soccer equipment abroad From West Carleton to Africa

Jim McKaig is the founder of Mojazima, a local company who just donated their 1,000th soccer ball to Africa. His wife Jennifer Horne-McKaig and children, seven-year-old Emily and three-year-old Christopher, show off some of the Sport Africa gear sold by Mojazima.

ABC>I@LTFKBP@LJ “There’s this phenomenon in rural African schools,� McKaig said. “If they have a soccer field, the community will revolve around it.� Student attendance rates increase because students want to play, and parents become more involved in the school and come to watch soccer matches. McKaig and the Kenya High Commission have developed track suits with the Kenyan flag on them to sell and raise money for Mojazima’s newest project. The company’s website,, showcases the various products that Mojazima offers including soccer balls, volleyballs, basketballs, equipment bags and jerseys. The sports balls even come in various sizes suitable for younger ages. But owning his own company isn’t the only thing that keeps McKaig busy. “This is the night job,� he said of Mojazima, as he works during the day at Alcatel-Lucent. The two jobs make his life a little hectic, but it is all worthwhile. “It’s so nice to live here in Canada,� he said, “and it feels good to be able to do something to help those less fortunate.�

A West Carleton company just donated its 1000th soccer ball to Africa. Jim McKaig is the founder of Mojazima, a sports equipment and uniform company whose name means “one purpose� in Swahili. “We’re selling a product that has one purpose, the purpose being to help children in Africa enjoy the sport.� For every 10 soccer balls sold by Mojazima, one is donated to Africa. The same is true for uniforms, and 220 shirts have been donated since the company’s start in 2005. McKaig and his wife Jennifer HorneMcKaig took a camping safari trip to Africa in 2003, visiting Zimbabwe, Malawi, Zambia, Tanzania and Kenya. “We met a lot of people along the way, and got a feeling for how needy some of the people are in the rural areas,� he said. The idea for Mojazima stemmed from McKaig’s travel experience, and a desire to bridge Africa and Canada together. “Soccer is a sport we both share,� he said, so he created a series of soccer balls called Sport Africa. On Aug. 19, McKaig donated his 1000th soccer ball to Ryan’s Well Foundation, which was created in 1999 by a sevenyear-old boy who wanted to provide Africans with clean drinking water. In the past, McKaig has enlisted the assistance of other organizations to bring his soccer balls across the ocean, including Soccer Without Borders, Education Without Boundaries, and World Vision Canada. Something as simple as a soccer ball can mean a lot to someone who’s never had one, McKaig said. “These kids have been using a wrapped-up piece of plastic to kick around,� he said. Receiving feedback from the distributing organizations, McKaig learned of a letter one little boy had written about how a soccer ball had changed his life. He was able to practice more often and take part in local tournaments as he pursues his dream of becoming a professional soccer player. But soccer balls aren’t the only thing needed in Africa so that youth can play the sport. McKaig has been working with the Kenya High Commission to raise funds to build soccer fields in Africa.


Homeowner perplexed over cheese-flinging incident Patrol officers in the West Carleton area responded to 47 general calls for service from the public for the reporting period of Aug. 5-11. From these calls for service the following is a partial breakdown of incidents by community. • Armitage: one mischief, one suspicious. • West Carleton: one fire, one collision. • MacLaren’s Landing: one theft. • Madawaswka Blvd: one theft. • Richardson Side: one safety. • Constance Bay: two theft. • Carp Village: one found. • Woodlawn: one break and enter. In addition to the calls for service, patrol officers are also proactively enforcing the highway traffic laws, responding to false 911 and alarm calls, and assisting the Ottawa fire, paramedics and bylaw services.

symptoms of alcohol poisoning and act on it before it acts on you. Lookout for these critical signs and symptoms of alcohol poisoning: • Mental confusion, stupor, coma, or person cannot be roused. • Vomiting. • Seizures. • Slow breathing (fewer than eight breaths per minute). • Irregular breathing (10 seconds or more between breaths). • Hypothermia (low body temperature), bluish skin color, paleness. If you suspect someone might be suffering from alcohol poisoning—call 911 right away; do not wait for all of the symptoms to be present to act; be aware that a person who has passed out may die from asphyxiation or poisoning of the respiratory center in the brain. FIRESIDE EGGS Last Sunday at around 8 p.m. police received a report that a group of kids on foot and bicycles were egging houses, mailboxes and cars along Fireside Drive. The Boys of Summer were last seen heading towards the Len Purcell Community Centre. KEEP YOUR GUARD UP DEER Week 32 and six more deer collisions were reported in the West Carleton region. This week Rideau-Goulbourn went deer collision free. The total score now stands at 83 to 49, in favor of Rideau-Goulbourn. BREAK AND ENTER • Aug. 9: 3730 Dunrobin Rd., Woodlawn: For the second time in the past week the Woodlawn Deka Home building Centre was hit by two or more young thieves bent on stealing fireworks and construction tools. In this latest incident, which occurred at around 1 a.m. on Tuesday morning, two culprits were caught on camera crawling underneath a secure fence and breaking into the warehouse by crawling underneath a large sliding door; an 20 centimetre gap separated the bottom of the door and the floor. Once inside, one of the suspect’s broke into a locked cage using a pair of bolt cutters, removed several boxes of fireworks and passed them to a second suspect, who was waiting outside. It is believed that the same suspects were involved in the break and enter incident on Aug. 4.

• Aug. 9: Ottawa Road 29, West Carleton: An early morning blaze completely destroyed a rural home in the West Carleton area on Friday morning. The homeowners narrowly escaped the fire unharmed when they awoke to the sounds of the crackling fire. The Ottawa fire inspector concluded that the fire started in the garage and deemed it as non-suspicious.

and Hwy. 417, West Carleton: Just before 11 a.m. on Wednesday, a passerby called 911 to report a safety concern that had the potential of endangering the lives of passing motorists on the highway—a male was observed throwing rocks down onto the highway from the Richardson Side Rd. overpass. The male was described as Caucasian, late teens, 6-feet tall, thinly built with blonde hair. He wore a green T-shirt and a pair of jeans. Police searched the area to no avail. Remember, you are the eyes and ears in the community—your visible presence alone can make a difference by altering a person’s behavior. SUSPICIOUS • Aug. 7: Sumac Hill Lane, Armitage: A complainant called police on Sunday to report a suspicious incident after several young strangers showed up at a neighbour’s cottage.

COLLISION • Aug. 6: Diamondview Road, West Carleton: Shortly before 2 a.m. on Saturday


Last week it was reported that two teenage girls, 13 and 14 years-of-age, from the West Carleton area, were transported to hospital after they fell unconscious from the over consumption of vodka. Well, this week emergency services were called to a home in Manotick after a 14 year-old boy consumed an “excessive amount of alcohol” at a friend’s house and began to display the signs and symptoms of alcohol poisoning. It was shortly before 2:30 a.m. on Monday morning when police received the call to assist paramedics with the drunken teen and to investigate the incident. Subsequently, the boy was transported to CHEO by ambulance for recovery and his parents apprised of the situation. Police learned that the boy was drinking outside of the house with his buddies when he fell unconscious and a 911 call was made. Excessive drinking can be hazardous to everyone’s health. Yes, even if you’re not the one doing the drinking. Get to know the signs and

Ottawa Police


A homeowner was left scratching her head early Saturday morning when she discovered that a dozen or so slices of cheese had been thrown about her front lawn. Perplexed, the homeowner acted on her intuitions and made the right call by reporting it to the Ottawa police call centre. The odd mischief occurred sometime between 11:30 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 5, and 6 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 6. Are you feeling sandwiched between a set of conflicting emotions—should I or shouldn’t I report it? Does the sandwich feel a little light on the beef, or in other words, the incident just doesn’t feel important enough to report? Then wonder no more and just report it! Remember, you are the eyes and ears in the neighbourhood. No matter how light or small one particular incident (puzzle piece) may feel, consider the bigger picture—your one piece connected into the many other ones can help solve a community crime puzzle.


morning, a concerned father called 911 to report that his 16-year-old son had taken off in the family pickup truck and was possibly drunk. As police converged onto Canon Smith Drive from all directions one of the patrol officers’ spotted a similarly described pickup turn onto Diamondview Road from Kinburn Side Road and proceeded to catch up with it to take a better look. A short time later a call went over the air advising that the vehicle had been found and that it was involved in a single motor vehicle collision. The truck was totaled and there was debris strewn all over the place: McDonald’s food, beer cans and truck parts littered the roadway. Out of concern for the teen’s health, paramedics were called in and the driver was subsequently transported to the Arnprior Hospital for further assessment. In the end the investigating officer charged the G1 driver with careless driving and having a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) over zero, and the notso-happy father decided to sell his son’s first car to cover the cost of the fines and repairs.

Sexy flowers have lots of style MICHAEL RUNTZ Nature’s Way receives it. If the pollen comes from the same plant, nothing happens. But if it is from a different source, a prenuptial agreement is made and a tube grows from the pollen through the pistil’s stigma and down its long neck, the style, to the ovary where the eggs are held. Two sperm then migrate down the tube, led by their guide the pollen nucleus, and after meeting the eggs, close the bedroom doors. Some plants go to great extremes to make sure the prenup is not faulty. Orange jewelweed and purple loosestrife are two of these. Jewelweed opens as a male flower with its large white pollen mass very visible. But after a few days the pollen-bearing structure falls off, revealing a pointy green pistil formerly hidden be-

neath. By changing its sex a flower cannot self-pollinate. Purple loosestrife has an even more complex way of ensuring cross-pollination. Each plant consists of many flowers on a spike. Each flower has two sets of stamens, the pollen-bearing parts, and one pistil. But if you look at many plants you will find these sex organs come in three different combinations, with only one combination or form per plant. One form has a set of short stamens, a set of medium-long stamens, and a long pistil. Another form has a set of short stamens, a medium-long pistil, and a set of tall stamens. The third form has the pistil being shorter than the two sets of stamens. Remarkably, fertilization for one form only occurs if pollen from a different form arrives on its pistil. As the pistil’s style gives it its height, and there are three different lengths of styles, this unusual method of ensuring cross-pollination is called heterostyly. Next time you see purple loosestrife, be sure to peer at their sexual parts. If you do you will be sure to see that at least one of them has a lot of style.

It seems like only yesterday when spring ephemerals were creating a flood of colour in local woods. Now only withered leaves and ripened pods stand where trilliums and violets once bloomed. However, another regime of flowers has arisen and they now adorn fields and damp edges of wetlands all through our region. Wet areas harbour not only some of the most colourful but also some of the most intriguing plants in our region. Currently the spikes of purple loosestrife and the goblets of orange jewelweed are enlivening wet places. These very different plants share two things in common. They are beautiful and they are sexy. The sole goal of their colourful blooms is to entice insects (and in the case of jewelweed, also birds) to visit them, and in the process bring pollen to and from other flowers of their species. Most wildflowers choose cross-pollination over self-pollination because a mixture of genetic material from two donors is better for producing healthy offspring. In many cases, there is chemical communication between pollen grains and the female sex organ, the pistil, which

Jack’s great hope


ack Layton died Monday, in the early hours of the morning. A giant, his fall was felt across the country. Canadians nationwide poured out their grief for Jack. The widespread admiration felt for him – some because of his views, some despite them – is among the man’s finest legacies. He is widely remembered as a fighter, a man of strong ideals, and a person you’d be happy to call your neighbour. Politicians of all stripes recalled their fondest memories and favourite qualities of the NDP leader, a true achievement in a climate pock-marked by partisanship. Though he couldn’t keep his promise to return to the House of Commons in September, he made another pact in his final message to us. In Parliament, it will be as powerful a presence as his empty seat. It was in his final letter that his great spirit shone brightest. For almost 30 years, from Toronto City Council to Parliament Hill, he chose his battles with his heart and fought them with limitless guts. Optimism and integrity are remembered as hallmarks of his career. It was with words of hope, however, that he chose to make his exit. In a letter to Canadians published hours after his death, Jack wrote that

hope is a precious commodity, and promised us we can change the world if only we believe in its power. Those who “are on journeys to defeat cancer and live their lives” must maintain their hope and determination, he wrote. “Don’t be discouraged that my own journey hasn’t gone as well as I had hoped.” Those in his party he implored not to lose faith in their cause, but to recommit to it with even greater energy and determination. And to those young people, who look out at their futures and see an array of overwhelming challenges, he implored them not to lose hope that they have the power to change the world for the better. But it was his final words – powerfully capped with the inclusive “We” – that touched so many, and will keep his spirit alive and fighting for years to come. “My friends,” Layton wrote. “Love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we’ll change the world.” As the day approaches where 307 members will enter a House of Commons that feels remarkably empty, let us not forget Jack’s great hope: that we can make the world – in which “life’s highs and lows are inextricably linked” – a better place.



The little things that make a city great

here has been a series running in the Citizen in recent days on the question of how Ottawa can become a greater city and why it hasn’t done so up to now. Various explanations have been put forward, among them the notion that the rest of Canada doesn’t like our city much. When used in headlines, the name “Ottawa” has become synonymous with bad news – bickering, scandal, ineptitude, government waste. Our city, it goes without saying, is not responsible for any of that. It just sits here and plays host to it. But people away from here, it is argued, take it out on us and are reluctant to be generous in supporting projects that would make the city greater. So it falls on government to do that. Aside from a few stunning examples in the last quarter century – the National Gallery, the War Museum, the Museum of Civilization – the government hasn’t done much. Ottawa’s City Hall is pretty nice and the new Convention Centre may turn out to be a fine addition. But these are mere dots on a larger and bleaker landscape. Is this because the rest of Canada hates

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town us? Probably not. And it is probably not – at least not totally – because every decision here has to be approved by at least 93 levels of government. It is mostly because making a city great involves spending money. Governments spending money went out of style many years ago. So that leaves us a bit with our hands tied as far as making Ottawa a great city is concerned. It is apparently on us, our little individual selves, to do the job. We’ll do what we can, rake the lawn and hang flags out the window, but it is unlikely that true civic greatness lies in this direction. We have to wait for government spending – and, of course, taxes – to come back into fashion before anything big happens.

While we wait, we can work on keeping some of the things that work well already. I was thinking about this at the ballpark the other day, where I went with my grandson to watch the Ottawa Fat Cats claw the Barrie Bay Cats, as they say on the sports pages. It seemed like there were a lot of grandparents and grandchildren at that game, a lot of kids seeing their first baseball game and it was a nice scene, one of the less spectacular things that makes a city great. Ottawa Stadium has always been a good place, ever since the Lynx played there in the ’90s, and while the quality of ball has slipped a bit, other things are improved. The music isn’t so loud and the mascot, who is called Grape, for some reason – perhaps because he’s purple – seems more friendly than Lenny the Lynx ever did. Baseball seemed to be slipping out of our hands a few years ago and it wasn’t helped by the city allowing much of the stadium parking lot to be used for other purposes. This is an example of how hard it is just to keep things going that work. If the Fat Cats ever really take off, getting into the stadium is going to be a big problem, one the city government

might help with. All over town there are examples of family-friendly sports events played at a high level. More and more people are turning out to see the Ottawa Fury play soccer. And the Ottawa 67’s games are always fun and affordable. Great cities, and the people who live in them, make sure that such activities survive and prosper. We have only to look the void where the Ottawa Ex used to be to see what can happen. On a more serious note, I’m still perplexed by how the mascot for a team of cats can be a grape. Perhaps many levels of government were involved.

Lamb-baby’s great cottage adventure away from the farm The Professor has been on vacation for a week but the Farmer has been working like a dog. I’m not sure why he uses that particular expression – he must be referring to the sheepdog and not our lazy watchdog. Anyway, in order to get the Farmer to relax while on vacation, I must spirit him away from the farm. We were invited to my sister’s fiancé’s cottage in Quebec for a few days. This is a great idea. We don’t have to spend a lot of time planning and packing camping equipment and food. We just throw some clothes in a bag and drive for a couple of hours. Our only problem was we had a lamb born two weeks ago, and the mother won’t feed it. That lamb-baby is more mine than the ewe’s, because I am the one who mixes bottles of milk replacer, offers it words of encouragement and scratches its back while it feeds. I even know the sound of its call. I can pick it out of dozens of other lambs calling from the barn. It needs me. So we had to bring it to the cottage with us. On the morning of our trip, I packed everything in the truck, then brought some old ripped sheets and blankets up from the basement. A lamb on a completely liquid diet makes quite a mess. When we were just about ready to hit the road, I scooped the lamb up from its pen in the barn, fed it the rest of its bottle and gently shoved it into a dog carrier that I had put in the back of the Explorer. The lamb baaaed as it skated around the plastic floor of the carrier on its high heeled hooves. I opened the crate door and pushed one of the towels in there with him. Finding traction, he settled down for a nap and off we went. We chatted on our drive, my Farmer and I. I also sang along to the radio. I noticed that the lamb cried when I was quiet for more than a few minutes so I made a point of saying something every once in a while. I’m sure the Farmer is worried I am becoming too attached to this lamb. At the cottage, my animal-loving sister had already set up a corral of doggy gates (she owns two large Basset Hounds) within a screened dining tent. I set the lamb crate down inside this corral and tied the bottle brace to the side. There. Quite a nice set up, at the top of the hill, overlooking the lake. There was even a lovely breeze just there,

DIANA FISHER Accidental Farmwife under the pine trees. I went into the cottage and set up the blender to make my lamb some more milk. The blender dial must have been jostled on our ride, because it was turned to “on”. I didn’t notice this until about one second

after I plugged the thing in—without first putting the lid on it. That corner of the cottage kitchen is now extremely clean. Everything went quite well during the day on our cottage visit; the hounds spent much of their time nose-to-nose with the lamb, keeping it company. A bottle of milk replacer was strapped to the side of the corral so the lamb could feed on demand. But when night fell, it was a different story. Lambs hate to be alone. When the dogs retreated to their beds for the night and the loons began to call over the lake, the lamb started to cry for his mama. And his brother. And

his aunt and uncle. The Farmer suggested we do what he did when he adopted a puppy that wouldn’t stop crying. Feed it, make it a nice bed, and lock it in the back of the truck. So that’s what I did. It seemed cruel and neglectful to me at first, but I could see the lamb settling down right away in its cozy space. In the morning, I brought it back out to the corral again. All in all, it was a successful outing. The Farmer and I had a nice break, we have good tans and we both managed to finish our books. The only problem is I now have a lamb who calls for me from the barnyard, thinking I’m its mother.

Back to School Alleviating first-day-of-school jitters August and September are prime months for the return to school. Whether this is a child’s first time entering the classroom or he or she has done the back-to-school thing multiple times, it’s not uncommon for feelings of anxiety to arise.

pects of school, such as seeing friends, participating in extracurricular activities and even the change of scenery school provides. Mention the things your child may expect. Hearing about school frequently can reduce feelings of anxiety.

• Don’t be nervous. Children often look to their parents for guidelines on how to behave. A parent who is overly nervous or sad about the first day of school could make their kids nervous, too. Put on a brave face and keep any anxiety hidden until kids have left for school.

There are expectations and unknowns with each and every school year for both the students and their parents. Pivotal years, such as kindergarten, 6th grade for middle-schoolers, freshman year of high school, or the start of college can create added levels of jitters because these years mark entry to a new school or new routine. But keeping a few pointers in mind can alleviate some of the fears.

• Be prepared. Gather supplies, practice the driving route, lay out clothes, make lunch the night before, get a good night’s rest, and set the alarm clock. Knowing all of the controllable factors are handled can ease the mind of parents and students. • Stay positive. Always keep conversations about school geared toward the positive. If children mention things that frighten them, calm those fears and show the upside to attending school. Provide examples of your own school experiences and how everything turned out for the best.

• Keep a routine. It is important for parents and students to get back into the school swing of things a few weeks prior to the first day of school. Start setting alarm clocks for the hour at which kids will have to awaken, and get them in the habit of rising from bed and starting the day. Try to schedule something to do each day that will be the inspiration for getting moving, such as school supply shopping. Take the carpool route to school, or find out where the school bus stop may be. These practice sessions will enable the family to decide how much time is needed to get ready in the morning and make changes accordingly. • Mention school frequently. Begin talking about school and what is necessary to prepare. Be sure to talk about the more enjoyable as-

ule an individual visit to the school. A tour and a meeting with the principal will also assuage some fears of the unknown. This can also calm any apprehension parents may have, because they, too, will know the layout of the school, its policies, and who will be watching over their children.

• Visit the school. If this is the student’s first time entering this school, you can take advantage of orientation days for new students or sched-

The first day of school can be a time of uncertainty for students and parents. Adults are facing a new stage in their lives, and children are awaiting a classroom of new faces and requirements. Preparing for the first day can alleviate some of the anxiety about heading off to school for a new year. BS117071

Back to School

Survive ‘back to school’ stresses (NC)—Late summer and early fall can be the most challenging time of the year for busy families. Here are a few tips for surviving the ‘back to school’ rush. 1. Return from vacation a few days before school starts. Children and teenagers need to make physical and mental adjustments when they go back to school. 2. Help your children start going to bed at “school bedtime” a week before school begins. Try to have them get up earlier, too. Many teenagers become so used to staying up late that they have problems getting up in the morning when they return to school. 3. Start limiting TV and encouraging reading a few weeks before school starts. For many children, the structure required for homework is a big adjustment. If children haven’t been reading all summer,

Ottawa Catholic School Board Calendar 2011-2012

make a trip to the library in August to find some books of interest to them. 4. Visit or revisit a new school. If your child is starting a new school, the change may be especially stressful. Try to visit the new school before the first day of classes, so your child is familiar with where classrooms and the cafeteria are located. Teenagers may want to visit a new school on their own. 5. If you have vacation time left, take a day off from work and spend it with your children or teenagers. Establish a tradition for the end of summer— a special movie day, or trip to a special place. 6. Make sure you know the school bus route and schedule. See the route that the bus will take, including where it will drop your children off at school. Drive them along the route so that they know to anticipate landmarks.

Back to School What to look for in a student’s tutor • Cost is always a factor when selecting a tutor. A higher hourly rate isn’t always indicative of a better tutor. Depending on the subject matter and certification of the tutors, costs can range from $20 an hour to $50 or more. Shop around for a tutor and remember to emphasize the tutor’s relationship with the

student more than what the tutor charges per hour. Tutoring is often a helpful way for students who are falling behind in the classroom to redeem themselves. Hiring a tutor should be done at the first signs of learning difficulty, not when it seems things are too late to institute change. BS117063

Back to School Volunteer opportunities abound for today’s teens (MS) When attempting to gain acceptance to the college of their choice, teenagers quickly learn the admission requirements extend beyond their report cards. Colleges weigh academics considerably, but many institutions of higher learning also want well-rounded students who will make great additions to the community as well as the classroom. One of the things admissions boards look for in an applicant is his or her track record of volunteering. Though students likely won’t be denied admission if they have never volunteered, it never hurts to have volunteer work on a resume, and some students have even earned scholarship money thanks to their record of service. Parents who want to help their child find the right volunteer opportunity should consider the child’s hobbies and interests. Oftentimes, a child’s favorite hobby matches up perfectly with a volunteer opportunity. When such a match is made, teenagers tend to look forward to their volunteer work and might even find a career path they’d like to follow. The Athlete Students who love sports are likely to discover a host of volunteer opportunities at their disposal. The Special Olympics ( is a rewarding volunteer opportunity for adults and children alike. Relying heavily on volunteers, the Special Olympics needs volunteers to fill positions that include athlete escort, scorekeeper, cheerleader, and even fans. Events occur 365 days a year, ensuring there is a local opportunity for every teen regardless of how hectic his or her schedule might be.

The Traveller Teenagers who love to travel can combine that passion with their desire to help the less fortunate. Many programs are designed for families who want to go on service-oriented vacations. For example, when signing up for such a program, a volunteer might visit a less fortunate country and help build and renovate existing structures. Global Citizens

Oftentimes, a child’s favorite hobby matches up perfectly with a volunteer opportunity.

The Teacher Teenagers who enjoy teaching others might find a local coaching opportunity suits them best. Coaching doesn’t have to be limited to sports, though grade-school aged children often look up to the local high school athletes and genuinely appreciate when such athletes take the time to work with them personally. Additional teaching-based volunteer opportunities include the local music program for the musically inclined teen or reading to younger kids through the local library’s reading program. The Builder Some teenagers are naturally inclined to building, and they might even be off to engineering school once they earn their high school diplomas. Before applying to the school of their choice, teenagers with a more mechanical inclination might find a volunteering opportunity such as Habitat for Humanity® ( is the perfect fit. No previous building experience is required, and volunteers both young and old often find their time erecting homes for the less fortunate among the most rewarding moments of their lives.

Network ( is one of many such programs, and families will work side-by-side with fellow volunteers as well members of the local community they’re helping. Younger volunteers often find service-oriented vacations especially eye-opening, providing a different perspective of the world they might otherwise never be able to witness or understand.

When attempting to find the right volunteering opportunity for their child, parents should consider their kids’ favorite hobbies and then find a volunteering opportunity that enables them to combine that passion with their desire to help others. BS117017

Back to School Tips to improve standardized test scores (MS) Though some professional educators debate the use of standardized tests, students of all ages can expect such tests to continue to play a role in their education. Younger students might take standardized tests to help determine the class level that best suits their abilities, while high school students will need to take certain standardized tests in order to gain admission to a college or university. Since standardized tests are likely going nowhere anytime soon, students can take several steps to improve their scores. While a professional tutoring service might be a worthwhile investment for students concerned with their college admissions, other steps can work for students regardless of which standardized test they’re preparing to take. Maintain healthy sleep patterns. Healthy sleep restores and renews the body, both mentally and physically. When a person suffers from sleep deprivation, the negative side effects are numerous. These include memory and cognitive impairment, making it difficult for people think and process information. That said, a student preparing to take a standardized test who is struggling to sleep at night is much less likely to succeed on the test than a student who is getting adequate sleep. Parents and students should examine sleeping patterns months in advance of the test, and work to address any problems as soon as possible. The sooner the issue is resolved, the sooner a student’s memory is likely to improve, which can help his or her test scores as well.

Practice Practice tests can be a very valuable tool when attempting to improve standardized test scores. Sample tests are available on a handful of Web sites, and tutors hired to help kids improve scores often bring practice tests with them. Such practice tests are often very similar to the actual tests and will help kids be more comfortable with the tests when it comes time to take the real ones. When taking practice tests, time them just as you would the actual tests. This, too, can improve a student’s comfort level and will decrease the likelihood that a student will feel like he or she is racing against the clock when the time comes to take the real test. Learn the test. Learning the test involves figuring how a score is determined. Some standardized tests place greater emphasis on certain questions and tabulate scores based on this weighting system. Learn that weighting system if it exists, and in the months leading up to the test help students concentrate on those sections that weigh more heavily than others. Another thing to learn is if the test weighs wrong answers more than skipped questions. On such tests, a student might actually be better off leaving a question blank than guessing and risking a wrong answer. Many tutors specialize in a particular test and might be able to help students learn about the test they’re taking and, in so doing, improve their scores. BS117021

Back to School Maintaining a gym locker

A few tips can keep gym lockers safe, clean and sanitary.

(MS) Students often find middle school or high school is their first foray into a structured physical education class that requires changing into a gym uniform or workout clothing. With this comes the responsibility of outfitting and maintaining another locker on campus. A gym locker is different from a regular hallway locker in that it is often smaller and less frequently used. While some students may have gym every day of the week, others might have it two or three times a week. Even if it is visited daily, it’s only during the one gym period. Gym lockers can be breeding grounds for some unsavory things, including bacteria, fungi and odour. That’s because they store clothing that is often damp from perspiration in tight quarters. It also may be easy for lice or bed bugs to spread through the close contact of gym lockers. Students can ensure their belongings are safe and secure by following a few safety and hygiene practices. • Find out the wardrobe policy. Some schools require an issued uniform. Many others indicate the use of T-shirts, shorts of a specific length and sweatpants. There also may be requirements on footwear. Stock up on these items so you’ll have a few changes of clothes as necessary. • If a combination lock has not been issued

adequacy and embarrassment when changing in front of fellow students. Once you have all of your supplies set, keep in mind some locker room etiquette. • Respect personal space and take turns so that you have adequate room for changing comfortably. • Keep your eyes to yourself. Be sure your eyes are at eye level with others. Nothing elicits feelings of anger or embarrassment faster that a student catching another student checking out a naked or nearly naked body. Few people feel comfortable in such situations, so respect privacy. • Change clothes in stages. Take off a shirt and replace it with another. The same can be said for shorts and pants. Avoid prancing around in undergarments. • Be quick about changing. Don’t dally in the locker room. This way if someone wants a little more privacy, most of the students will have cleared out. Keep in mind that these formative years are times when your body and the bodies of other students are changing at a great pace. Locker rooms tend to make even the most self-secure person a little modest. BS117019

to you, purchase one to keep items safe. While potential thieves may not be interested in dirty socks or gym shorts, they may be interested in the digital devices, watches, clothing, and other items stored in gym lockers while you’re participating in gym class. • Keep toiletries, such as antiperspirant, powder, sanitary pads, soap, shampoo (if there are showers), and a pair of water-resistant sandals handy. • Because many microscopic organisms breed with warmth and moisture, something that is often in abundance in locker rooms, investing in some antibacterial spray, a desiccant product that absorbs moisture and an air freshener can keep your locker more sanitary. • Depending on how dirty gym clothes become, you’ll want to bring them home at least once a week for laundering. Take dirty socks home daily because they can fester inside of the locker. • A large zipper-top bag or a recycled grocery bag is a good way to tote home dirty gym clothing inside of your backpack. • Be aware that the locker room floor may be teeming with bacteria, so avoid changing with bare feet on the ground. The locker room can dredge up feelings of in-

Swampfest returns to Kinburn this weekend COURTNEY SYMONS

The second annual Kinburn Swampfest returns to the Kinburn Community Centre from Aug. 26-28. Last year, the festival was established to celebrate the 180th anniversary of the founding of Kinburn, and to commemorate the Swamp Tavern that brought early settlers together until it burned down in 1871. “We’ve turned it into a family festival this year,� organizer Jim Armstrong said. “It would have been silly to celebrate the 181st anniversary of the village.� This year will feature more children’s activities but just as much music. Saturday will be an all-day music festival featuring acts such as Huntley Slim & The Suburban Cowboys, Gail Gavan, Running Naked Band, Cindy

Thompson, and Johnny Spinks & Darlene Thibault. Saturday will be the only day requiring admission, with a fee of $15 per person, $10 for seniors and students, and free for those under 12. Friday and Sunday events are free for all. On Friday evening from 6 p.m. to midnight, Hudson’s Fresh Produce from Panmure Farms will continue their annual tradition of providing cobs for a complimentary corn roast. Crash the Clown will provide entertainment for the young ones, and Youth Connexions will host an outdoor teen dance from 8 to 10 p.m. if the weather allows. Saturday’s concert begins at 2 p.m. and runs all afternoon until 10 p.m. Magicians will show some tricks at 1:30 p.m. and Little Ray’s Reptiles will make your skin crawl at 4 p.m.

A car, truck and motorbike show takes place in the afternoon, alongside 30 local vendors who will sell items ranging from jewelry to essential oils to baked goods. Swampfest will wrap up on Sunday with a family breakfast served up by the Kinburn Fire Department from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., amidst live music by the Van Barr Family. The event will raise money for the Kinburn Community Association, which has been looking for an event like this one for some time. Their annual tractor pull was cancelled this year due to bad weather and it’s a long time before their carnival in wintertime, leaving an open space for an event at the end of the summer. For more information about the festival, visit www.kinburn. ca/swampfest.

Ottawa, Canada mourn ‘tireless champion for people’ EDDIE RWEMA Hundreds of Ottawans descended on Parliament Hill on Monday afternoon to pay their respects to the man many said transformed not only the New Democratic Party but the Canadian political landscape. Jack Layton, leader of the official Opposition, passed away peacefully at his home in Toronto surrounded by family and loved ones, according to a statement released by his wife Olivia Chow. He was 61. A group of mourners shocked by the sudden news of Layton’s death cried, lit candles and laid flowers around the Centennial Flame on Parliament Hill as the Canadian flag flew at half mast above the Peace Tower. “It is very sad, I can only hope we take Jack’s legacy and work to-

Layton, shown in at a fundraising event in Kanata in 2005, was remembered earlier this week as ‘a courageous man,’ ‘a tireless champion,’ and ‘the voice of real people.’

“This, sadly, will no longer come to pass.” In a letter written two days before his death, dated Aug. 20 and released by his family on Monday, Layton called on other Canadians afflicted with the disease not to be discouraged that his own journey hasn’t gone as well as he had hoped. “You have every reason to be optimistic, determined, and focused on the future,” Layton wrote. “My only other advice is to cherish every moment with those you love at every stage of your journey, as I have done this summer.” He urged his party members to build on the progress they have garnered in the last couple of years. “Let’s demonstrate in everything we do in the four years before us that we are ready to serve our beloved Canada as its next government.”

gether to build a better Canada,” said Vicky Smallman, an Ottawa resident and NDP supporter who was among those gathered. The NDP leader had been battling prostate cancer since February 2010 and had hip surgery just before the May 2 federal election. In July, Layton surprised many by announcing he was taking a temporary leave of absence to receive further treatment after doctors discovered he had a new cancer. A state funeral for Layton will be held at Roy Thomson Hall in Toronto on Saturday, Aug. 27. In a statement, Prime Minister Stephen Harper saluted Layton’s contribution to public life, a contribution he said will be sorely missed “When I last spoke with Jack following his announcement in July, I wished him well and he told me he’d be seeing me in the House of Commons in the fall.

Our Carp branch of the Ottawa Public Library has invited the members of the West Carleton Arts Society to hang artwork on the walls of the building. We are looking for a member who wishes to be the Carp library art curator. You would be responsible to organize a group of WCAS members (a list can be obtained from our membership person). The art would be rotated every three months. Artists can label and price their work but a sale would not be arranged by the library. The library will only direct interested people to take the artists number and contact them directly. Please let us know as soon as possible if you are interested in volunteering for this task. Should we have more than one volunteer we will team you up together so that you can share the fun. Its a great opportunity for us to get our work out of our studios and in front of the public but we need a volunteer to pull it all together. Email Catherine Gutsche if you are interested:

This summer’s wall to wall sunshine heat and humidity may make heavy going for humans but for melons and peppers conditions were perfect to bring out the ultimate in luscious sweetness or punchy fire. MelonFest and Pepper Pow WOW! is back this Labour Day, Sept. 6, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the grounds of Acorn Creek Farm near Carp – and it promises to be one of the best. “The summer we’ve had has resulted in what looks to be an exceptional crop not just in quantity but in quality,” said co-owner Andy Terauds. The good folks at Acorn Creek are expecting that most of the 21 types (149 varieties) of melon that they grow on the farm will reach their flavourful peak by Labour Day. Terauds’ wife Cindy is co-owner of the farm and the inspired creator of the dozens of jams and jellies, rubs and preserves that visitors can browse through as they savour the free samplings of melons and peppers available for tasting before arriving at a final choice. A melon fresh and warm from the field is brimming over with

flavour and sweetness and each has its own, individual signature whether it is colour or texture, taste or yes. Even perfume. crenshaw, canary, charentais, golden crispy, butterscotch, hami, oriental, tropical – the list goes on. And for those who lean towards the spicy there’s a chance to sample some of the 170 varieties of pep-

The night was a great success and while those present were all too aware that words are never enough to say thanks for the efforts and sacrifices of our armed forces, the warmth of their reception showed enormous respect and depth of appreciation. Thank you veterans and welcome home.

Tom passed away peacefully surrounded by the love of his family at the Tom Baker Cancer Clinic in Calgary, Alberta on Sunday August 21, 2011.

THOMAS JAMES SMITH A “Love Letter” to my Tommy

Son of the late Earl and Ferne Stanton, and predeceased by his sister Sandra.

Hi Hon, Did you see how your neighbours and many friends rallied around your family when we needed it so much. The food, the flowers, the mourners (so, so many) who came to see you. All the Donation Cards that were sent in your name. What did you think of the song written especially for you by Greg and accompanied by your sister Helen? Clem’s lovely old hearse taking you to your new resting place gave me such peace. Didn’t the Pilon Funeral Home do a nice job? Hope God has a big old oak tree for you that needs some cutting.

Beloved husband of Adele and much adored father of Lindsay (Darcey Lien). Survived by his sister Suzanne (Don Laughlin) and his brother Michael. Fondly remembered by Amanda and Paul Laughlin, MaryAnne, Kelly and Angie Hall and Andrea and Heather Angus.

Till we meet again, Suzanne xoxox Thanks to everyone from the bottom of my heart and especially to God for giving me such peace.
