NEWS

EMC news – Ask anyone in the area and they will likely tell you: West is best. Turns out school rankings by a public policy think-tank are closing in on arriving at the same conclusion. West Carleton Secondary School in Dunrobin placed an impressive second in Ottawa and 15th in the province on the Fraser Institute’s new study released Sunday. The organization rates all 718 high schools’ academic performance using data from the government’s Education

Quality Accountability Office (EQAO) test. The testing is from Grade 9 math and Grade 10 literacy, but includes other related factors such as relative academic performances by girls and boys. The Fraser Institute says Ontario’s students – both at the academic and applied levels - are improving markedly, especially in math. Over the past five years the mark out of four has gone from 2.6 to 2.8. However, none of this is news to Ottawa-Carleton Zone 1 Trustee Lynn Scott. See ALL SAINTS page 2

EMC news – The unpredictable, odd weather over the last few months bears little resemblance to the sunny economic forecast offered by the federal government. While West Carleton farmers see good and bad in this year’s short winter, Agriculture Canada’s prediction of a decade of boom times in the sector were greeted coolly by John Herrick of Kinburn Farm Supplies. “It’s not as rosy as Agriculture Canada says,â€? said Herrick, who has done business with farmers in the area for some 29 years. “(Business) is steady, but then again there’re fewer farmers every year.â€? A U T O C A R E & A C C E S S O R I E S According to new government projections, farmers in crops, cattle and most other sectors can look forward to good times over the next 10 years. Average farm income set new records in 2011. Net cash income – meaning money spent on living expenses, machinery and more – should total almost $12 billion. That’s a 47 per cent increase over the five-year average, or a 24 per cent increase over 2010.

All Saints finishes a respectable 34th in Ontario From Front page

“West Carleton is a great school,” she said. “It’s been a team effort on behalf of all staff, and it’s a tribute to our feeder schools: Huntley (Centennial), Stonecrest, and Jack Donohue.” She said principal Colin Anderson – who was unavailable for comment – and staff do a superb job of guiding and supporting students. A group of teachers and other curriculum people toured the school recently, entering every classroom, to gain best practices and share ways to improve. “The feedback is important because the whole team has to be on a learning curve,” Scott said. “Like I said, West Carleton is a good school. They

have a good array of programming, and we have some excellent staff.” Scott is aware that critics pick apart the right-wing Fraser Institute’s methodology, but when she takes the results and compares it to her many years of experience in the education field, she is confident the organization got it right. She likens the notion of ranking schools to that of the World Figure Skating Championship. Only shades of difference separate one competitor from another, and some days skaters are better than on other days. But basically the results are accurate. “I have a feeling ranking all the schools in Ontario can be

like that.” All Saints High School principal Brid McDonald was also unavailable for comment. The Kanata school where most West Carleton Catholics attend finished an impressive 34th overall in Ontario. Arnprior District High School ranked

above average, at 281 out of 710. For more on the high school report, and to see one on elementary schools, go to Ontario.compareschoolrankings.org. The top 10 high schools in Ottawa, as ranked by the Fraser Institute, are: * Colonel By (9.1 out of 10); * West Carleton (8.8);

* John McCrae (8.8); * St. Joseph (8.7); * Earl of March (8.6); * Lisgar (8.4); * All Saints (8.4); * Mother Teresa (8.4); * Nepean High School (8.2); * Gisele-Lalonde (8.1).

EMC news – The young man charged in connection with hit and run death of Erin Vance in Constance Bay last month has been granted bail. Twenty-three-year-old Jeremy Rees was released from custody Friday on $30,000 bond. As a condition of his release, he must live at his mother’s home in Renfrew except for being in her company or being at work. He must also not consume alcohol or drugs. A bail hearing in the case was held March 27 in Ottawa and Justice of the Peace Raymond Switzer rendered his decision March 30. Evidence given at the bail hearing is covered by a publication ban. Vance, a 26-year-old mother of twin fiveyear-old boys, died after being struck by a car while walking along Bayview Drive in Constance Bay early Sunday, March 18. She had been enjoying a rare evening out celebrating St. Patrick’s Day when she was struck and killed by an alleged hit and run driver. Police confirmed Vance and Rees had both been at The Point Dining Lounge in prior to the tragedy. Rees, of Constance Bay, has been charged with criminal negligence causing death, impaired driving and failure to remain at the scene of the collision. He turned himself into police the afternoon of March 19 and is being represented by lawyer Paolo Giancaterino. Police revealed it was at approximately 2:35 a.m. when Vance and her boyfriend Justin Hammond were walking on Bayview Drive when she was struck by a blue Subaru. The driver of the vehicle left the scene on foot. The tragedy occurred near the home of an

Stick around – life has something to say EMC news – Ah experience, what a wonderful teacher. She can be tough, but she always has something important to say, whether you like it or not. Shortly before midnight on Saturday, March 24, police was called to an unopened road allowance near Mohrs and Carry’s Side roads after a caller reported hearing the sounds of youths and engine noises rising up from the forest. The caller told police that he felt the kids were up to no good and they had no business being in the woods as it was only a mud trail. Respecting life’s lessons, the officers parked their vehicles on solid ground and head into the bush on foot. After some deliberation the officers decided that it was best to call in the boys’ parents for assistance. With five teens, three really stuck in the mud trucks and only one way out there was a lot of homework to dish out. About two hours later, the parents decided to abandon their vehicles and not their kids for the evening, and seek alternate solutions to their sticky predicament. DUNROBIN ROAD WANDERER

Would you notice and what would you do? An older male with a beard is walking very slowly along a sparsely populated road in rural west Ottawa. He is wearing heavy dark brown and green jacket and is carry a backpack with a rolled up sleeping bag; something tells you that there might be some mental health issues and that he is a wanderer. You recall seeing the same man last night. He was wandering around the same area, wandering back and forth in circles; it appears as if he is staggering. Would you take notice? How would you act? Last Tuesday two female drivers noticed and cared enough about

his well-being that they decided to call 911 for assistance. Upon receiving the call, police located the male wandering along Dunrobin Road heading towards Kinburn Side Road. He was bound for Renfrew. After conducting a health, safety and security risk assessment on the man and ensuring that he had enough supplies for his long journey, officers decided to lend a helping hand by giving him a lift into Arnprior. SUSPICIOUS VEHICLES

While waiting for his school bus near the intersection of Allbirch Road and Baillie Avenue March 21, an 11-year-old student’s attention was drawn to a blue van that had just driven down Allbirch and parked close by. It was around 8:10 a.m. Wednesday when the boy’s intuition called out to him to take notice of the driver who appeared to be watching him from inside of the van. Feeling uncomfortable about the suspicious behavior and the change in his environment, the boy decided to take action by walking straight home. As the boy made his way home, he noticed the van appeared to be following him and that there were two occupants inside of the vehicle a white male driver and a white male passenger with blonde curly, afro style, hair. When the boy knocked on his front door and waited for his mother to answer, the van promptly took off. Listening to one’s inner voice or intuition is a very importance part of personal safety. Do not dismiss its significance or hinder its ability to continuously scan your environment by drowning

it out with electronic devices. We all have this safety mechanism Ottawa Police - pay attention to it and Service promptly act on it. Police were notified about a suspicious vehicle at around 8:30 a.m. on Sunday, March 18 on Cyd Street in West Carleton after a homeowner noticed two strangers sitting in a parked vehicle. The male and female occupants remained inside the vehicle for about two hours for no apparent reason. Because the homeowner knew his neighbours were away for the weekend, he became concerned the strangers were possibly casing the residences. The vehicle drove off before police could get into the area.

GOOGLE OVER DEER COLLISIONS

Last week it was reported that three deer jumped into the path of a vehicle and were bowled over. This week a driver reported a deer slammed into the side of his car after jumping out of a ditch and then took off running into a nearby field. Looking for a completely different take on rural west Ottawa? Then, head on over to the Manotick neighbourhood watch website wwwmanotickneighbourhoodwatch.com/ deer - and graze on some interesting stats. Week 12 in rural west Ottawa ended with three more deer collisions one from the West Carleton area and two in the Rideau-Goulbourn Ward. This time last year the total count stood at 38 to 11 for Rideau-Goulbourn. Now it stands at 28 to 7, still in favor of Rideau-Goulbourn. FIREWORKS COMPLAINT

Patrol officers in the West Car-

leton area responded to 51 general calls for service from the public from March 18 to 24, including a complaint March 23 about people setting off fireworks in the skateboard park at 262 Len Purcell Dr. in Constance Bay at around 8 p.m. The complainant was concerned the teens’ activity would set the tables on fire. Police spoke to a small group of teens in the park but no fireworks were found COTTAGE DAMAGE

On March 18 on Bayview Drive in Constance Bay, a cottager reported a mischief to property incident that occurred sometime between 5 p.m. on Saturday and noon Sunday. The owner reported that unidentified culprits smashed in a rear-facing window and broke open three cans of paint using a metal fire poker. No entry into the cottage was made or attempted. A witness reported observing a male and female standing near the cottage at around 10 p.m. Saturday but did not hear any unusual noises. PHONE WOES

A Constance Bay homeowner has reported receiving two strange calls that supposedly originated from the New Jersey area. The phone number 201-301-0307 appeared on the homeowner’s call display. The first call was received at around 9:30 p.m. on March 21. A female caller asked the homeowner questions about her green and blue bin usage. The second call was received on March 23 at around 10:30 p.m. This time a male caller with a Jamaican sounding ascent asked about her recycling bins. When the homeowner called the city to make some inquiries, she was told no one from the city was conducting a bin survey and she should

report it to police. A cell phone was taken from the Constance Bay Community Centre at around 8:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 24 after the owner mistakenly left it behind as he returned to his vehicle. Upon realizing his mistake, a short time later, he promptly returned to the centre, but by then the cell phone was no longer there. When the owner got in contact with the carrier to lock out his phone, he was advised two outgoing phone calls were made. The cell phone was described as a Blackberry Bold with a black rubber type case with a Rastafarian flag drawn on the back. THEFT FROM VEHICLES

Sometime between 11 p.m. on Friday, March 23 and 1 a.m. Saturday, March 24, unidentified culprit(s) entered into an unlocked vehicle on Country Meadow Drive in West Carleton and stole an iPod adapter and a bucket containing some loose change. A second vehicle along Country Meadow was rummaged through and a $200 pair of Rayban sunglasses and $20 in change was stolen. The unidentified culprit entered the unlocked vehicle sometime between 11:15 p.m. on March 23 and midnight on March 24. In addition to the calls for service, Ottawa patrol officers are also proactively enforcing the Highway Traffic laws, responding to false 91-1 and alarm calls, and assisting the Ottawa Fire, paramedics and bylaw services. The West Carleton Police Centre is located at 5670 Carp Rd. and can be reached at 236-1222, ext. 2982. The centre is a “community problem-solving centre” and is responsible for the delivery of the Ottawa Police crime prevention programs, but is not an emergency response centre.

EMC news - The on-again, off-again temperatures, high winds and trees that are being cut down due to the emerald ash borer disease mean that a lot of wildlife is having a very hard time this year. Those leaf nests or dreys that squirrels normally occupy high up in trees offer little protection against either the elements or predators. It explains why females, come spring, are so desperate to get into an eave or attic or, for a raccoon mother to choose a chimney. Skunks and groundhogs will select holes under steps or sheds because they too need to find a safe spot for their young when they are most vulnerable. The good news is that this is a temporary situation.

The safest and most humane option during the birthing season is to give a brief grace period until the babies are weaned and coming out with mother. The family will then move to a natural area and you can go about doing the necessary animal-proofing. It is also in a homeowner’s best interest to resist taking wildlife problems into your own hands, as abandoned hungry babies, in inaccessible areas in an attic, can fall between walls, requiring expensive drywall removal. Or, if they are under steps, immobile babies will die and create bad and long-lasting smells. You can be sure if you have an adult wild animal on your property at this time of the year, there are babies nearby. So never risk barricading

Fitzroy beef farmer considers end of co-op, family farm tradition From Front page

FITZROY BEEF FARMERS

a way of life disappear. But, as he repeated several times during a noontime walk out to his barns, he remains optimistic. “Farmers are always optimistic,” he said. “This is my favourite time of year – when you see new calves running around. I do have a sentimentalism for farming.” For more information on the co-op, log onto fitzroy-

Willie O’Rourke worked in the city for many years to save up for his second job - staying at home on the family farm. It wasn’t an easy slog, but many in the industry wonder if the next generation will even bother. ing it.” Market folks like the idea that Fitzroy’s beef doesn’t have hormones or antibiotics. (The group didn’t join the Carp Farmers’ Market because it didn’t want to crowd others already selling beef there.) While he enjoys meeting customers and hearing the positive feedback, there comes a time when O’Rourke admits that his business side may overtake his belief in the co-op and 100-mile diet movement. CO-OP TO END?

When his beef ends up in Cobden, he gets top sale every time because his animals are purebred. He can also drop them off and wipe his hands of the work. That doesn’t happen with the “slow-food” system, as foodies have come to call it. The Fitzroy Beef Farmers sell at competitive prices – not as premium, though O’Rourke is pushing for the change – and it costs time and money for drop-offs and sales. “It’s very rewarding when you go to the market and people say, Thank you, I really enjoyed your meat,” he said. “If things continue to get better at the barn sale, I’m going to say Fitzroy Beef is not going to continue because of the extra work involved.” Like many local farms, Harbour Hill is a bit of everything. Usually about four or five of the best males calves are set aside to sell as breeders. Purebred Charolais are in demand. There’s also hay for the cows, and soybeans because the price is good. He has about 200 acres in all, just down the road from Stonecrest Farm where O’Rourke grew up. His operation, which he bought 38 years ago, is small enough that he doesn’t need to invest in heavy machinery, but big enough that he takes away a feeling of pride when surveying his kingdom. It’s all he does now, farming. But it took 36 years of working in the city, repairing elevators, before he has the money set aside to do his real passion full-time. “I lived in the city for one year,” he said, laughing. “Then had to come back out here.” His two daughters showed some interest in the vocation, but are both in the city now. His son died some time ago. O’Rourke doesn’t begrudge the girls. What parent would encourage their kids to go into low-paying work, with no time off on weekends let alone time to jump on a plane to head south? Who would suggest investing in a sector that can fall prey to international forces such as power politics and sensationalistic journalism – both at play during the BSE crisis – along with mere weather? A dry spring is fine for calving. The ground is at least solid. But a few more weeks without a serious rainfall and farmers will be in trouble. Already the field run-off in tile drains is The Fitzroy Beef Farmers started as a response to the BSE a quarter of what it was last crisis. It fits in nicely with 100 mile-diet and ‘Buy local’ cam- year. How are seeds expected to paigns, but can demand more commitment than some farmgerminate? ers are willing to give.

Few are encouraging their sons and daughters to take up farming these days. The family farm is giving away to larger family farms with a few helping hands. Where at one time every road in West Carleton had a number of beef farmers, today many are doing corn or soybeans or nothing at all. You have to drive 15 kilometres before coming across a dairy farmer. They’ve sold their 100 acres to the guy with 1,000. Or, worse, in other regions of the country they sold to the corporate farms with thousands of acres; highly-automated enterprises with workers as

Willie O’Rourke isn’t impressed by the report’s findings. The owner of Harbour Hill Charolais, overlooking Fitzroy Harbour to the north-west and the Quyon Ferry Landing to the north-east, O’Rourke said a slow rebuild then flatlining of income in beef farming doesn’t make up for the bomb dropped on the industry in 2003. “When BSE hit it was disaster for beef; for milk too. I can remember the day. It sold for 50 cents a pound; on May 4 it sold for 20 cents,” said O’Rourke, gazing at an empty spot between his kitchen table and wall, before coming back again. “What they call a record is nine years we’ve suffered, just getting back to it now. Certainly it’s improving. We’re looking for more improvements.” The Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy crisis – a largely forgotten news story about Mad Cow Disease – continues to reverberate in agriculture sectors of Canada’s economy, and has lasting effects on farmers such as O’Rourke and 15 others in the area. They started Fitzroy Beef Farmers, a co-operative, as an attempted to save middleman costs. Harbour Hill is a typical-sized operation of some 25-30 cows. Each will ideally produce one calf, which after seven months, is shipped to either the co-op or the buyer at the sale barn in Cobden. From Cobden they are off to a feedlot in Southern Ontario or Quebec. The “finished animals” are ready for the slaughterhouse and market in 14 to 18 months. Only four to five major feedlots remain in Canada, which means corporate feedlot owners can all but dictate price to both farmers and grocers, said O’Rourke, president of Fitzroy Beef Farmers. From the co-op route, they are off to a feedlot in Smiths Falls. When ready for consumption, the beef is taken back to Fitroy Beef Farmers’ site on Ferry Road. Along with “farmgate sales,” the co-op participates in the Ottawa Farmers Market and now sells to restaurants such as the Cheshire Cat. Last year farmgate sales totalled $27,000; a drop-off to downtown Ottawa customers totalled $15,000; the Ottawa market was $50,000; and the restaurants was a massive $60,000. “Restaurants are a big part now,” O’Rourke said. “It’s true. You’re not going to get rich do-

little more than serfs scratching the ground in some CEO’s fiefdom. It’s evident in the middleman who provides the feedlot out West. Cargill, for instance, pays massive bonuses to upper management. The distinctions with yesterday’s aristocracies – living off the work of others – are difficult to perceive. O’Rourke isn’t happy to see

• A whopping 44% increase in grains and oilseeds farmers’ incomes; • Hog producers should see higher incomes now that market receipts are up 20%. The one downside? Cattle producers – of which there are at least 20 in West Carleton – absorbed setbacks in 2011 over rising costs. Still, Agriculture Canada staff say the plateau was reached after several years of gradually rising incomes. Cattle prices are expected to keep improving and herds are gradually rebuilding. The report says increasing expenses, such as fertilizers, are expected to rise modestly. As are feed costs, as the demand for grains up prices. “Many of the factors that will influence farm income in 2011 and 2012 will continue to be felt over the next 10 years,” reads the report. “These include continued increase in world demand for feed grains, a rising price of petroleum, slow-moderate Canadian population growth, and a Canadian dollar near par with the U.S. dollar.”

Tough economic times are never pretty

H

as Ontario turned into a classic example of keeping up with the Joneses by increasing debt to keep up with the average Canadian consumer? The March 24 budget tabled by the provincial government says we are. Our piggy bank is dry, every last penny – and more – has been spent. We’re following in the footsteps of the average citi-

zen, who can’t seem to resist pulling out the credit card for pricey purchases. But unlike spend thrifty average Joes, we expect more from our government. We’re wasting billions of dollars on interest payments alone every year. To put things into perspective, Ontario spends $4.7 billion on the administration of justice and $7.5 billion on postsecondary education and training. The cost of servic-

ing the provincial debt each year nearly tops both at $10.6 billion. Now that the coffers are truly dry, it’s time to get on the right track and get rid of the debt, even if it means drastically cutting costs over the few years. Overall, there are bound to be people who are unhappy – take money away from anywhere and it’s going to reduce services and facilities, or affect staffing.

But years down the road, with the debt reduced, that’s a lot of money we could have back to invest in worthwhile projects. Ontario can fund a lot of schools and hospitals with $10 billion, a long-term gain that can’t be overlooked. Short-term, is this the best budget that people can expect? No, because things will be cut, services will be reduced. It might be a rough road, but

follow the path for the next five years and it’s going to be a good decision for the province as a whole. At least that’s the plan. There is a great deal at stake as Ontario’s 444 municipalities begin to realize they will have to make some hard choices. The choice between raising taxes to make up for any shortfall in provincial funding or doing without will be difficult to make.

Sewage treatment plants and schools do not come cheap. Even if Ontario is as overburdened as a beleaguered consumer, it’s never too late to chart our own path. Let’s not be an example of the poor getting poorer, because when you’re in debt to the tune of almost $240 billion, the hole is already deep enough. While the budget might not leave smiles on anyone’s faces for the immediate future, the cuts are going to mean a long-term benefit for our province and be a decision we won’t regret down the line.

Watering down Canadian politics CHARLES GORDON Funny Town

T

he day after Thomas Mulcair was elected leader of the New Democratic Party, Canadians opened their newspapers to see what it all meant. They got the expected assortment of comments about the quality of his acceptance speech, the nature of his support and the feeling in the room. And, in several high-quality national newspapers, they read – or didn’t read – articles about Mulcair’s beard. Image consultants were consulted. “It may be a personal bias, I don’t know,” said one. “I prefer, even in a leader, whether it be political or business, I think I would prefer a man who was clean-shaven myself.” She added that beards made her think of older men. She mentioned Roger Whitaker, a perennial favourite at the National Arts Centre some years ago. This might not have been flattering. A second image consultant was consulted, the article being nothing if not thorough. “My advice to him is if that’s something he’s comfortable with, he certainly needs to keep it clean,” this one said. Another newspaper ran a series of photos of bearded political leaders down through the ages. One was Pierre Trudeau, but the newspaper helpfully pointed out that Trudeau only wore a beard when he was briefly leader of the Opposition in 1979. What important lessons are we to learn from this? Absolutely none. Except that there is a tendency now in the media to reduce any important issue to a lifestyle story. Think of it: In the last election how many stories did you see about Jack Layton’s mustache? And, well before that, how many stories did you see about Preston Manning changing his hair

style? Or Stephen Harper wearing glasses? Why is this? One obvious answer is that the news media think we are stupid, that we can’t handle the details of policy and ideology and want only to read about appearances. Another is that the image story is the easiest one in the world to write. Just phone the image consultant and ask about beards. A more complicated answer stems from what the media see as our obsession with celebrity and personality. If we want to know every detail about, say, Julia Roberts, wouldn’t we want to know the same about Thomas Mulcair? Probably not, but that never stopped an image consultant’s phone from ringing. The obsession with turning news into lifestyle can extend even into the most tragic circumstances. A couple of weeks ago, Trayvon Martin, an unarmed black teenager in a Florida community was shot to death by a white man who said he felt threatened by him. Trayvon was wearing a hoodie, a piece of apparel common among young people. Several days later major newspapers in both Canada and the United States saw fit to publish lengthy articles on the origins and meaning of the hoodie, quoting fashion professors at universities and such. Suffice it to say that if the victim had been wearing a cowboy hat there would have been reporters asking fashion professors about cowboy hats. It has come to this. Fortunately this style of reporting has not always been with us. Otherwise, we would have seen bricklayers interviewed when the Berlin Wall fell. How would you keep your wall from falling? Marie Antoinette’s famous “Let them eat cake” would have followed by recipes from local bakers. When Moses parted the Red Sea, image consultants would have been interviewed. Is it good for a sea to be red? What if it had been blue? But grim days are ahead. You know how there’s this big debate over light rail stations in Ottawa? How long will be before there are articles about what colour the station walls should be?

The catcher and thief exciting to watch for students, instructor EMC lifestyle – Seeing a bird of prey is always an exciting thing. Whether it is a Red-tailed Hawk patiently perched atop a roadside telephone pole or an American Kestrel hovering helicopter-like over a grassy field, encountering a bird of prey always generates excitement. Even more exciting is seeing two large birds of prey interacting. This very thing happened during the final field trip of my Carleton University Ornithology class. Each early April we head east of Ottawa in search of migrating waterfowl that frequent flooded fields. This year, however, the flooding occurred in March and by April the fields were dry. By default we decided to head west, the Dunrobin area our chosen destination. The trip was an unforgettable one for my 22 students who were present that day. Turkey Vultures soared overhead while Eastern Bluebirds tamely sat on nearby posts. A Northern Shrike cooperatively perched atop a dead tree, allowing great views through my spotting scope. While all of these were

Michael Runtz Nature’s Way exciting finds, the highlight occurred at the large marsh where Thomas Dolan Parkway crosses Constance Creek. Here, a platform atop a telephone pole has enticed Ospreys to nest for years now. We stopped to view the magnificent hawks and were treated to close views of one of huge birds carrying large sticks to the nest, and of another perched atop a dead tree, plucking away at a large fish. Ospreys are specialized fish eaters. Their massive talons extend from muscular toes that bear sharp spicules on the bottom - projections that help hold slippery meals. See BALD EAGLE page 11

LETTER/OPINION

Agricultural society might lose heritage building, honour To the editor: We are about to lose a local institution and its custodians are oblivious. Faced with serious issues, time and again the directors of the Carp Agricultural Society (CAS) - hosts of the annual Carp Fair - fail to fulfill their provincially-mandated responsibility to the community. The Exhibit Hall, the unique octagonal red building, is the focal point in the community. This City of Ottawa “heritage-designated” building, erected in 1897, is now in ill repair. In 2013, the year the fair will celebrate its milestone 150th anniversary, Heritage Canada funding could assist in its restoration, a necessity if it is to be preserved for future generations. Using federal government money to assist with the preservation of this building (home of the extremely popular Carp Farmer’s Market) would be a sound fiscal decision. Sadly, however, the board passed a motion to defer the planning of any capital projects for the 150th celebration until 2013, knowing full well that it will be too late to apply for the necessary funding. In December 2011, the CAS was approached

by a reporter from CBC and asked to contribute to a story about the Exhibit Hall, its importance and future in the community. The CAS declined the interview. In an age when family farming and the traditional rural lifestyle are on the decline, and largely misunderstood, the decision to arbitrarily refuse publicity for their work to promote agriculture is highly disturbing. But that is not all. In November 2011, the Agriculture Division passed a motion that cancelled the CarletonRussell Holstein Show. This event provides an opportunity for Holstein breeders to showcase their prize-winning herds. I would consider it a vital educational component of the annual fair. Yet, strangely, the very people who have been entrusted by the Province of Ontario to promote agriculture have arrogantly chosen to ignore its importance. And they have done so without regard for the needs or desires of the community they serve. Recently, members of the Holstein Club met with the fair board to discuss the show. In a surprising move, a director of the Carp Agricultural Society advised the Holstein Club that

members of a local family would not be welcome to attend the meeting. Shame! This Carp family (Holstein Canada Premier Breeder) has been exhibiting livestock at their local fair for four generations. Several members of the family have served as directors/ presidents of the Carp Agricultural Society for close to 100 years. Faithfully, year after year, the entire family have tirelessly prepared their livestock for competitions, sharing their knowledge and love of rural living with the community. The majority of the current directors have none or limited agricultural background. Wouldn’t the sharing of this exhibitor’s long-time experience be considered beneficial to building a more vigorous organization? What is happening here? Remember the good old days when city folk eagerly awaited the arrival of the ‘EX’ in late summer? That too was once a highly revered fall agricultural fair. But slowly agriculture was removed and it became simply an annual amusement park, until one day it was gone. My fear is that power and arrogance and a true lack of foresight will cause the ever popu-

lar Agricultural Exhibition in Carp Village to suffer the same fate. Who is holding the Carp Agricultural Society accountable for its questionable decisions? In lieu of property taxes, agricultural societies in Ontario have a legal responsibility to “return” to the community. Shouldn’t restoring a significant heritage building be considered “returning to the community”? Indeed, as mandated custodians of this slice of Canadian culture, shouldn’t it be a decisive priority? Similarly, the mandate of agricultural societies in Ontario is to promote agriculture. It seems obvious; but shouldn’t hosting Holstein shows at the county level be considered promoting agriculture? The Ministry of Agriculture and the taxpayers of Ontario must start asking questions. If not forthwith, yet another symbol of our rich local culture and heritage will be lost forever! Now is the time for the directors to act honourably to restore honour to a society that was once considered honourable. Charlene Johnston Carp

Bald eagle dives twice at nesting Osprey Like the feet of owls, one toe is reversible. This unusual feature may help them grab fish they strike after diving feet-first from great heights. It may also help them manipulate their catch so that it faces headfirst as it is carried through the air. Then came a surprise that held all of us captivated. Just as the Osprey was nearing its nest with a stick in its claws, a Bald Eagle suddenly flew in. It dove at the slightly smaller Osprey, causing it to bank sharply to the side.

The eagle made a second pass at the Osprey before continuing its flight along the creek. As the eagle flew away, the Osprey took after it, eventually rising above it. It then changed from defender to aggressor and swooped at the eagle. Why did the eagle initially attack the Osprey? The answer is simple. Bald Eagles commonly rob Ospreys by harassing them until they drop their fish. This eagle likely thought the Osprey’s stick was a fish, so it was trying to steal a meal. When the eagle realized it was out

of luck, it gave up. Perhaps as payback, the Osprey decided to drive the eagle out of its territory. Kleptoparasitism (food theft) is also performed by jaegers, which rob terns and gulls of their catches. Seeing one of those Arctic birds in action, however, could not possibly be as exciting as watching the mighty symbol of freedom attempting to steal food from the one of the greatest fish-catchers alive today!

Playoff drive has Sens soaring with Sportsnet By Rob Brodie OttawaSenators.com The Ottawa Senators’ surprising rise to playoff contention has been a hit with television viewers. Fans are tuning into the team in record numbers on Sportsnet East, the team’s regional rights holder since the network launched in 1998. Through games played March 23, Senators telecasts were attracting an average per-minute audience of 196,200 per night, an increase of 24 per cent over the 2010-11 campaign. “We’re approaching 200,000 viewers per broadcast and that’s the highest our Senators numbers have ever been,â€? said Rob Corte, the network’s vice-president of production. “We’re very pleased and it’s indicative of how the team is (playing) and how the marketplace feels about the team.â€? Indeed, it’s no coincidence that the signiďŹ cant rise in interest in Senators TV broadcasts falls in line with the growing enthusiasm about a team that, in a lot of eyes, wasn’t expected to contend for a playoff position in what had been deemed to be a rebuilding season. However, with less than two weeks left in the regular schedule, Ottawa holds down seventh place in the

BOSTON BRUINS Thursday, April 5, 7:30 p.m., Sportsnet East The defending Stanley Cup champions have begun to regain their old form in recent games, showing they’re again one of the teams to beat heading into the 2011-12 postseason. The Bruins’ biggest breakout player of the campaign has been second-year forward Tyler Seguin, who’s emerged as a prime leader of the team’s attack. Patrice Bergeron rates as one of the NHL’s top twoway threats, while Milan Lucic and Brad Marchand are physical forces who also produce plenty of offence.

Zdeno Chara is still one of the league’s most feared blueliners as well as being a top Norris Trophy candidate. With Tuukka Rask sidelined by injury, the majority of the goaltending load falls on the capable shoulders of Tim Thomas, last year’s playoff MVP.

In Ottawa, it started strong. It signiďŹ cantly and steadily climbed through the ďŹ rst months of the season and it stayed there. Now the numbers have been consistently good all year.â€? At least two Senators telecasts on Sportsnet have cracked the 300,000 mark this season — a Nov. 4 matchup with the Montreal Canadiens (327,400) and a Jan. 17 contest against the Toronto Maple Leafs (334,800). The average overall reach during a game, or total viewership, has swelled to 750,000. As well, the Senators are starting to reap full beneďŹ ts of the Portable People Meter (PPM) ratings

This season has also seen the introduction of a 30-minute pre-game show leading into Sportsnet telecasts, which Corte believes can help get fans revved up for the games. “The pre-game show has been a pleasant surprise ... the numbers have been tremendous,â€? said Corte. “They’ve far exceeded what our expectations would have been. There is a desire and craving for Ottawa Senators coverage in the marketplace and this speaks to it right there. (The pre-game show) just gives viewers another place at a different time to get Senators information. It builds anticipation and gets the story lines owing leading into the broadcast and then it just carries through (to the games).â€? Sportsnet East and Sportsnet One will carry a combined 52 games this season to the Senators broadcast territory, which covers a region extending east from Peterborough, Ont., and also includes parts of Northern Ontario, Quebec and the Atlantic provinces.

Some had feared the cuts would be worse, but the release of the federal 2012 budget on March 30 revealed that 19,200 public service jobs will be eliminated by 2015.

Public service cuts not as deep as feared Museums spared, but NCC, NAC and CBC budgets trimmed

Laura Mueller

EMC news - While many observers viewed the impending federal budget as a dark cloud looming over the public service, job cuts were not as deep as expected in the budget released March 30. But tough times are still anticipated as the Conservative government looks to trim 19,200 jobs, or 4.8 per cent of the federal workforce. As the largest employer by far in the capital region, the federal public service cuts will be felt in Ottawa more so than any other place in Canada, says the union that represents public service workers. It’s still unclear how many of those 19,200 jobs will be eliminated in this city. But John Gordon, national president of the Public Service Alliance of Canada, dismissed Ottawa West-Nepean MP John Baird’s recent claim that the cuts to jobs in the capital region would only amount to around 4,800. “I believe the numbers are greater than the 4,800,” Gordon said. About 12,000 government jobs will be lost to layoffs over the next three years and another 7,200 will be eliminated by attrition through retirement and voluntary departures. Information about how many jobs are to be eliminated – and where – was beginning to trickle to the alliance’s attention last week. Gordon couldn’t comment on specifics until after April 4, but the job losses, particularly in the capital region, are significant, he said. “It’s substantial, I must say,” Gordon said. The move should save around $5.2 billion annually by 201415 as part of an overall government spending review. The number of public servants is already set to go down following reviews conducted between 2007 and 2010, Gordon

said, and another batch of jobs were lost during a 2010 federal hiring freeze. While the cuts don’t amount to austerity measures implemented by the Liberal government in the ’90s that cut federal employment by 14 per cent, Gordon said any increase in unemployment will have an impact on the local economy. “They’re not going to be able to spend the way they would if they had a job,” Gordon said. “If you don’t have a job, you’re not going to be able to go out to your local businesses and do the same things you would normally … I’d say they’re going to have to pinch their pennies, but they’re gone, too.” Gordon was referring to another casualty of the federal budget; the one-cent coin is set to cease production by the fall, which will save the federal government $11 million a year (it actually costs 1.6 cents to produce each copper-plated coin). Gordon said the alliance wants to work with government departments to ensure that retraining and assistance is available to help public servants move into different jobs within the federal government, if they are available. While a lot of public servants who live in Ottawa may decide to stay in the city because their families and finances are entrenched here, workers have to be willing to be mobile in this harsh economy, Gordon said. “There may be some people who get other opportunities in government and may move into another region,” Gordon said. The federal budget doesn’t include any changes to funding for national museums in Ottawa, nor the National Gallery or the Canada Council for the Arts. The CBC, however, will see its budget reduced by $115 million a year by 2014-15 and the National Arts Centre will get $1.9 million less a year by the same time. The National Capital Commission will see its budget cut by $1.8 million a year by 2014-15. With files from TorStar News Service

City to host three of next six AMO conferences EMC news – The City of Ottawa is hosting the annual Association of Municipalities of Ontario (AMO) conference both this year and next. Now AMO president Gary McNamara has announced the Ottawa has also been chosen to host the municipal organization’s 2017 Conference as well. “AMO has held many successful conferences in the City of Ottawa and we look forward to returning again,” said McNamara. “The conference will provide a great economic boost for the City as participants experience all the nation’s capital has to offer.” “I’m delighted to welcome the AMO Conference back to Ottawa in Canada’s Sesquicentennial Year of 2017,” said Mayor Jim Watson. “I know that conference attendees will enjoy Ottawa’s excellent attractions and be eager to spend a few days in our nation’s capital during the celebrations of the 150th anniversary of Confederation.” Ottawa was selected as host for 2017 based on a competitive

Request for Proposal (RFP) process. The annual AMO Conference, held in August each year, is Ontario’s foremost educational forum for municipal governments. The 2011 conference attracted 2,500 participants including more than 1,600 municipal delegates, Ontario’s Premier and both opposition leaders, most of the Ontario Government’s Cabinet and federal government ministers. Typically, the conference features close to 50 plenary sessions and workshops, a trade show and more than 75 speakers that address public priorities, municipal management and the delivery of government programs and services. The locations of the 2014, 2015 and 2016 AMO conferences were also decided by a competitive RFP process: • City of London/County of Middlesex, 2014; • City of Niagara Falls, 2015; • City of Windsor/County of Essex, 2016. The 2012 and 2013 AMO conferences will also be held in the City of Ottawa. More information about this year’s conference is available at www.amo.on.ca.

Budget fails Ontario in two ways: MacLaren EMC news – One local Conservative MPP believes many Ontario residents were saddened to learn that they received a very Liberal budget last Tuesday afternoon. “The budget fails them on two counts,” Jack MacLaren said in a press release. “First, it’s obvious the Liberals haven’t found a cure for their spending addiction as they added just over $23 billion to the province’s debt. As of March 31, the Ontario’s debt will now be $237.9 billion, or $17,766 for every man, woman, and child in the province. “Next year the debt is scheduled to increase by $22.8 billion to over $260 billion. This budget does too little to steer us off the path toward a massive $30 billion deficit and a looming $411 billion debt.” MacLaren also believes the budget fails in the area of job creation. “Second, it’s not just the total absence of a jobs plan, it’s the fact that the budget actually makes things worse for the job creators who could help get our 600,000 unemployed men and women back to work.” The provincial budget has also increased the tax load by cancelling the promised business tax reductions in the midst of an economic downturn.

MacLaren also added that budgets have increased in 14 of 24 ministries, representing 82 per cent of the provincial budget. “This budget cannot withstand serious scrutiny. Liberal claims of a ‘tough’ budget are nothing but focus group-tested spin. This is not an austerity budget,” he said. The MPP noted the Liberal budget sends a clear signal to job creators and credit agencies that Ontario cannot afford the things that make it an attractive place to relocate to and expand, invest and create jobs in — things like good infrastructure and a competitive business climate with low taxes and flexible and responsive regulation. “And in the face of all that, the government continues its trademark spending binges at a pace of $1.8 million an hour more than it takes in. That’s nearly $2 million in new debt in the time it takes for an hour of question period alone,” MacLaren said. MacLaren said Ontarians will now increasingly look to a positive, alternative approach that — unlike the Liberal budget — offers real ideas for taming deficits and debt, and an effective private sector job creation plan. “And that alternative is Tim Hudak and the Ontario PC Party,” MacLaren concluded.

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The trip just got shorter for motorists from this area looking to travel between Ontario and Quebec. The Quyon Ferry, which transports cars and trucks across the Ottawa River from Fitzroy Harbour to Quyon, Quebec, officially opened for the season March 30. The ferry service has operated at its present location at the end of Ferry Road, off Galetta Side Road, for nearly 120 years. The ferry provides a valuable crossing and transportation link between Ontario and Quebec. The nearest interprovincial crossings available to motorists when the ferry is closed for the winter is the Champlain Bridge in Ottawa or the Portage du Fort, north of Renfrew. The McColgan family has been behind the operation of the Quyon Ferry for more than half a century. In 1956, Ed McColgan bought the business from Angus McLean who had to retire after 40 years on the job due to failing health. The McLean family had run the ferry since 1893. From early spring until November, the ferry operates on a regular schedule. The ferry can handle vehicles up to 11 feet in height and 27 feet in length. Small trailers can be unhooked to make the trip. For April, the ferry will be running Monday to Thursday from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Friday from 6 a.m. top 11 p.m. On Saturdays, the ferry will run from 7 a.m. to midnight, Sundays from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. and this Friday, Good Friday, the ferry will run from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. For more information and the complete schedule, call the Ferry Hotline at 1-819-458-2286 or 1-819-458-2032 or visit the website ww.quyonferry.com.

Area MPPs slam Ontario budget as lacking austerity, job creation DESMOND DEVOY desmond.devoy@metroland.com

EMC news – Randy Hillier believes that Ontario Finance Minister Dwight Duncan was thinking with the wrong end of his body when he wrote up last week’s budget. “You’d have to be thinking with your posterior to think this is an austerity budget,” said the Lanark-Frontenac-Lennox and Addington MPP of the March 27. “It’s hard to call them cuts.” Hillier’s Progressive Conservatives have indicated that they will vote against the budget, which he says does little for job creation, continues to grow the province’s debt and actually increases spending by 1.4 per cent over the next two years and 1.6 per cent in 2014-15. “They are planning to spend $2 billion more next year,” said Hillier. “Let’s cut through the rhetoric. We’re still trending in the wrong direction.” He also alleged that next year’s deficit would be larger than that of all of the other provinces combined. “(We are) an economic basket case,” said Hillier. There was some sabre-rattling around Queen’s Park last week that there might be another election, only months after Ontarians last went to the polls in October, but Hillier said he is not expecting to get back out on the campaign trail any time soon.” “The NDP is likely going to support it,” said Hillier. For Hillier, areas of his riding are still dealing with the fallout of a contracting industrial manufacturing sector, like the loss of the Hershey plant and Shorewood Packaging in Smiths Falls. “Where they needed to focus on was getting people back to work,” he said. “We’re hemorrhaging jobs.”

The corporate income tax rate will be frozen at 11.5 per cent, despite an earlier promise from the Liberal government to reduce the rate to 10 per cent. “People were banking on that to keep their heads above water,” Hillier said. While not taking Toronto Dominion bank economist Don Drummond to task personally for the findings of his report, Hillier felt that McGuinty used Drummond’s report merely as “political camouflage.” “(There are) smart, intelligent people employed by the Ontario government,” said Hillier. “It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see what is wrong with this.” One program Hillier would have liked to have seen in the budget is expanding the apprenticeship program. “That would not have cost the taxpayer a single penny, but would have created 200,000 jobs,” said Hillier. Hillier said he would have liked to have seen the end of “corporate welfare,” and ending funding for “advocacy welfare,” for advocacy groups like the Sierra Fund of Canada’s legal defence team and the World Wildlife Fund. “Taxpayers should not be funding these programs,” said Hillier. He pointed to green energy Power Base Systems of Carleton Place which he said received $1 million in loans and grants from the provincial government, only to later go bankrupt. Hillier said that, as of last Thursday morning, he had finished reading most of the budget, and that he had 150 pages left to go, but so far, he had nothing to recommend the budget to him. “There may be something in there,” said Hillier. “But I haven’t come across it,” though he added that “some elements are right on track.” A local auditor who looks at the town of

Carleton Place’s book was also not blown away by Duncan’s budget. “I don’t think there were a lot of surprises,” said municipal auditor Howard Allan during a presentation to Carleton Place town council on Tuesday, March 27, just hours after the budget was presented. “There was a lot of time spent (in Duncan’s speech) on effective and efficient service delivery. There is a belief that bigger is better (in service delivery). We have to be very mindful of this.” Any cuts to money that municipalities, especially those in eastern Ontario, could have far-reaching consequences. “We’ve had slow economic growth…but our costs, in terms of infrastructure, have grown,” Allan said. While numerous hospitals will be seeing their redevelopments shelved or scaled back, like the Brockville General Hospital, the Carleton Place and District Memorial Hospital is still on track to build a new facility. “While the budget announcement is new and details are not fully known, our hospital is still

planning for a health hub in Carleton Place,” said Toni Surko, chief executive officer of the hospital in a press release. “We believe that by integrating services with community partners, the renewed hospital and health village will improve patient navigation and patient flow among sectors. This will result in more cost effective care while significantly improving the healthcare available in our region.” The hospital is now working with the Champlain Local Health Integrated Network (LHIN) to review their business case. In another press release, Carleton-Mississippi Mills MPP Jack MacLaren said that this was not a “tough” budget. “This is not an austerity budget,” the Progressive Conservative said. “This budget cannot withstand serious scrutiny…It’s obvious the Liberals haven’t found a cure for their spending addiction as they added just over $23 billion to the province’s debt. This budget does too little to steer us off the path toward a massive $30 billion deficit and a looming $411 billion debt.”

WOCRC program runs poster contest EMC lifestyle - The Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre’s (WOCRC) Peer Support Program is once again running a poster contest open to high school students in the community to raise awareness of unhealthy teenage relationships. According to the Center for Disease Control, over 20 per cent of teenagers, grades 7 to 12, have experienced some form of abuse (physical, verbal, emotional or sexual) from their partner. The need to educate this age group on signs of abusive relationships and the resources available to them is of paramount importance. Abusive relationships can lead to adverse lifelong effects. The intent of the poster contest is to educate teenagers on what they would want their friends and family to know about abusive teenager relationships through the expression of art work using an 81/2” X 11” poster format. In addition, Peer Support volunteers from the WOCRC are also visiting high school classes to further educate the students on this topic. Last year’s contest was a huge success with numerous posters depicting the theme of abusive teenage relationships. The 2011 winner, Hailey Kehler, a Grade 11 student at Sacred heart Catholic High School, won the grand

prize of an iPod touch. Her winning poster is being used for this year’s poster contest advertisements. “Working on the poster contest made me think about the effects of dating violence. I came to realize that many people are affected by dating violence but chose not to talk about it to others; it’s either internalized or the person will attempt to “forget about it”. The point of the poster was to encourage young adults to speak out about the violence they are experiencing in their relationships to anyone they can trust be it a friend, colleague, teacher, parents or resource worker,” she said. “In my poster I included the acronym “H.E.L.P”, which stands for “Healthy, Equal, Loving, Partners”. The acronym insinuates that all relationships are to be equal between male and female partners. We all need to be part of the solution to end dating violence; males and females. I strongly suggest that you get involved with this contest.” The WOCRC hopes for another successful year and to increase student awareness when it comes to abusive relationships. This year the contest ends April 23. For any further questions, to submit your poster or to schedule a class presentation, please contact us at: wocrcpostercontest@gmail.com.

Kanata Sports Club set to celebrate 25 years in community Jessica Cunha

jessica.cunha@metroland.com

EMC news – The Kanata Sports Club will commemorate its 25th anniversary in the community with two events this June. Proceeds raised from the two events will benefit the Make a Wish Foundation on June 8 and the Do It For Daron fund on June 9. “It’s going to be a heck of a party,” said Kanata resident Mark Papousek, radio personality on country radio station Y101 and host of the sports club’s Hot Seat. The Hot Seat is held every Friday afternoon during the winter months where Papousek invites sports figures and athletes to talk shop at the club “We just started this thing on a whim 20 years ago,” said Papousek. During the most recent Hot Seat – which featured Jacques Martin, former head coach of the Montreal Canadiens and Ottawa Senators on March 16 – the club announced it was sending a Kanata hockey team to attend an Ottawa 67’s game

where partial proceeds from the tickets sold go directly to youth programs at the Youth Services Bureau in memory of Jamie Hubley, who lost his life to suicide last year. Lorne Weatherall, president of the Kanata Sports Club, said the whole point behind the club is to help the community and young athletes and spread the love of all things sports. “We do it for the kids,” he said. “A lot of work goes on, it never stops.” With close to 1,000 members, the Kanata Sports Club is run completely by volunteers and has donated close to $2 million in support of amateur sports, athletes, families and charities over the past quarter of a century. “This club has done marvelous in 25 years,” said Gary Mighton, member of the sports club. “With all the volunteers we’ve got it’ll keep going – hopefully forever.” EVENTS

The first event being held on June 8, is already sold out.

be attending, as well as a player from the Ottawa Senators, but it will depend on the playoffs. Following the Hot Seat will be a roast of Papousek by local celebrities Wayne Rostad, Liam McGuire, Brent Corbeil and Ian Wienmiester. Those interested in attending the June 8 event can have their name added to the waiting list in case more tickets, which cost $25, become available. Tickets, which cost $15, are still being sold for the June 9 event. The evening will include a dance with musical entertainment by band Ambush. “It’s going to be a great weekend,” said Papousek.

That’s really what today’s skate is all about for me.” For many of the children participating in Skate for Kids, it was their first opportunity to own a pair of skates and to take part in one of Canada’s favourite winter pastimes. “I look forward to this skate every year. It is one of my highlights,” said Melnyk. “I’m sure it is a dream come true for these enthusiastic youngsters to have the opportunity to skate on the same ice as their Senators heroes.

Green bin collection goes weekly EMC news - Starting April 2, residents will have their green bin and leaf and yard waste collected every week, year-round, permanently. Food scraps, soiled paper products and other allowable waste from residential homes can now be placed at the curb for weekly collection. “The move to weekly green bin collection just makes sense,” explained Mayor Jim Watson. “More and more residents are using their green bins for their organic waste, like food scraps. Weekly pickup should encourage more residents to participate in this important program.” “Providing green bin collection on a weekly basis throughout the year is in keeping with council’s decision to find long-term solutions to our waste,” said Coun. Maria McRae, chair of the environment committee. “This will go a long way in extending the life of the city’s landfills and result in significant savings.” Organics recycling is an important part of the City of Ottawa’s long term waste strategy. Diverting residential organic waste away from landfill saves the city millions of dollars and reduces the need for additional landfill sites.

and Sunday (April 7-8) from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. There will also be farm animals to pet and feed, courtesy of Big Sky Ranch on site Friday through Sunday (April 6-8). Children wearing a tutu like the Easter Bunny will receive a free maple lolly at the Maple

Shoppe. Fulton’s is open every day through to April 22 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. For all the spring activities, visit http://fultons.ca/?page=spring_activities.

Fishing, hunting experts will conduct seminars at Valley Fishing and Outdoors Show in Carp By JEFF MAGUIRE The ‘Valley Fishing and Outdoors Show’ returns to Carp April 13-15 and with more exhibitors, additional prizes and numerous seminars featuring hunting and fishing experts, this year’s venture promises to be the best ever. The Carp Fairgrounds and Arena complex is once again the site for the 13th edition of the always popular, threeday presentation. “This is the biggest show of its kind in Eastern Ontario,” says chief organizer Dave Arbour of Valley Outdoors

Promotions. “We will have some of the best known experts in the business on hand,” Arbour states. Among them are David Chong and Doug Brownridge who will deliver the ‘BassTalk’ seminars on Saturday morning and afternoon, April 14. Each will be one hour long. Chong and Brownridge are among Canada’s most successful bass tournament winners and their seminars are acknowledged to be “the most informative in the field.” Sunday, April 15 will feature more

outstanding fishing seminars! “Be sure to participate in our new Musky Hot Stove with Matt Clay of Musky Canada,” Arbour stresses. “Dale McNair (another expert) will also be participating in the Musky panel.” Sunday afternoon at 1 o’clock Canadian Angler Hall of Fame inductee “Big Jim” McLaughlin takes centre stage. “With his many years of experience Big Jim is always a hit,” Arbour underlines. Also on the fishing side, the Ottawa Fly-fishing Society will lecture on their sport.

HUNTING

“They will be discussing the set-up of fly fishing gear in preparation to target local species including bass, pike, pan fish and trout,” Arbour explains. “There will also be casting demonstrations as well as discussions about the rods, reels and flies appropriate for landing these species. “In addition there will be hands on opportunities for casting and tying flies,” he outlines. There is also “a gun show within the show” and the $8 admission price (children under 12 get in free if accompanied by an adult) covers both the main event and the gun show. Parking at Carp Fairgrounds is plentiful and free of charge! Arbour says those interested in hunting wild turkey will not want to miss the Valley Fishing and Outdoors Show. “Friday evening will be all about turkeys with Quaker Boy pro staffer Adrian Hare taking the seminar stage. “Adrian will help you develop the techniques required to land that big spring gobbler,” the chief organizer says. Also Friday, Kevin Bartley from Gobblestalker Calls will be at the show discussing the importance of turkey calling. He will give a demonstration relative to the principle design and maintenance of turkey calls. A recent addition to this year’s show is Taylor Wright, host of the Canadian Tradition hunting show. Wright, who hails from Chaffey’s Locks, will be hanging his hat at the Eastern Canadian Outfitters booth. He will appear at the show for a few hours on both Saturday and Sunday to meet and talk with hunting enthusiasts. “He’s a big name and he’s sure to be a major attraction,” Arbour says. Many prizes Those in attendance might be fortunate enough to win one or more of the hourly prizes which will be given throughout this year’s show. The only catch is that door prize winners must be on site in order to win. In addition, Arbour says Eastern Canadian Outfitters is donating a fishing trip for two which includes accommodations and a boat and motor for a week. Fernleigh Lodge is sponsoring a week of family fun and fishing, with lodging in a housekeeping cottage. The trips are valued at $1,000 each. Another interesting aspect of the 2012 extravaganza is the Big Buck, Bear and Moose Contest. Mounts can be brought in on Thursday, April 12 (the day before the show) from 4-8 p.m. and again on Friday, April 13 from 1-9 p.m. “Entrants have a chance to win one of five firearms or other prizes and hidden prizes will also be awarded,” Arbour explains. “Experts from FROW (Foundation for the Recognition of Ontario Wildlife) will be on hand to measure your animal,” he notes. For participants, entries cannot be picked up again until 4 p.m. on Sunday, April 15 the final day of the event.

The Carp presentation is a family-oriented event with lots of games and prizes for children and the young at heart. For many people the exhibit halls are the main attraction. “We have expanded and that means more things to see and do,” Arbour promises. The Carp Fishing and Outdoors Show covers every possible fishing and hunting need, things for the cottage, including docks as well as information on how to book hunting, fishing and outdoor adventure trips. “This year we will have many new outfitters on hand to help you plan an adventure trip, anything from a fishing weekend to salmon fishing or bear, moose and caribou hunts,” the promoter states. “There is truly something for everyone who likes the outdoors. “This year’s event is made possible by great sponsors such as Rapala, Shimano, Lucky Strike, Quaker Boy, Tie Boss and the Stittsville Shooting Range,” Arbour says. The show hours are Friday 4-9 p.m., Saturday 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Sunday 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. To reach the Carp Fairgrounds and Arena Complex travel to Carp Village which is easily accessible via major highway routes including March Road, Carp Road and Highway 417. It is located minutes north of Scotiabank Place, home of the National Hockey League’s Ottawa Senators. The fairgrounds are on Carp Rd. (Ottawa Rd. 5), past the four-way stop in the middle of the village. If you are coming from Kanata or Stittsville, drive to the top of the hill and look for entrances to the grounds which will be easy to find on your right. If you are traveling from locations in West Carleton such as Dunrobin and Fitzroy Harbour the fairgrounds will be on your left as you enter Carp. People driving from outside the immediate area can reach Carp via Hwy. 7 or Hwy. 417, east from Carleton Place and Arnprior or west from Ottawa. Take the Carp Rd. exit and follow the signs to the village. Arbour is also the man behind the ‘Valley Gun and Hunting Show’ which runs at the same location in Carp annually. This year’s event will once again operate Labour Day weekend, Saturday Sept. 1 and Sunday Sept. 2. In March Arbour organized the second annual ‘Renfrew Gun Show’ which was highly successful. On May 12 Valley Outdoors Promotions will offer the second annual ‘Brockville Gun and Hunting Show’ at Brockville Memorial Centre. On Sept. 15 they will present the ‘Havelock Gun and Hunting Show’. Watch for future articles and advertising highlighting those upcoming productions!

NEWS

New regional lab services includes ADMH Theresa Fritz theresa.fritz@metroland.com

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Arnprior and District Memorial Hospital (ADMH) is part of the largest clinical integration of regional laboratories in eastern Ontario. This ground-breaking collaboration went live Saturday (April 1) under the memberowned, not-for-profit, Eastern Ontario Regional Laboratory Association (EORLA). This collaboration is geared toward improving quality in patient care and managing costs. The voluntary initiative involves 16 hospitals through the Champlain LHIN (Local Health Integration Network). EORLA bring together 800 professionals and a $90 million budget and will conduct over 13 million diagnostic laboratory tests per year. Along with ADMH, EORLA members include the Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hospital of Eastern Ontario, HĂ´pital Montfort, and the Almonte General, Carleton Place & District Memorial, Cornwall Community , Deep River & District, Glengarry Memorial, Hawkesbury District General, Kemptville District, Pembroke Regional, Queensway-

not actually employed lab technologists or technicians at our place in 20 years. They were employees of the Queensway-Carleton Hospital,â&#x20AC;? Hanna added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now they are going to be employees of EORLA Inc. E O R L A i s g o v erned by a board of directors, which Hanna himself sat on prior to becoming CEO in Arnprior. The board represents all member hospitals. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Will we save money? Not necessarily, but I think what it will do is allow us to perhaps avoid spending money down the road that we might not need to â&#x20AC;Ś such as being able to share costs because we can buy equipment together and we can send more tests to the Ottawa Hospital where they have the equipment and we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t.â&#x20AC;? According to a news release, EORLA believes it will enable higher performance in laboratory services while delivering shared costs to member hospitals through combined efficiencies and best in class processes, systems and technology, Hanna believes one of the most important aspects about the hospitalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s EORLA membership is the fact it should as-

Carleton, Renfrew Victoria, St. Francis Memorial, Winchester District Memorial and Ottawa hospitals.. â&#x20AC;&#x153;EORLA is truly a flagship initiative in Ontario,â&#x20AC;? said Randy Penney, chair of EORLAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s board of directors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Patients will receive enhanced quality and standardized laboratory services delivered seamlessly across the region. Laboratory employees benefit from increased career mobility and opportunities, and enhanced professional development.â&#x20AC;? According to ADMH CEO Eric Hanna, the EORLA announcement is an evolution of a multi-site laboratory system the hospital has been involved with for years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Way back when, Arnprior had its own lab. Then we joined the West Ottawa Valley Lab Group and there were five of us (hospitals) and that was in place and had been in place for close to 20 years. Now, that is evolved into 16 hospitals,â&#x20AC;? he said, adding the process is not unlike what the hospital has undergone with regard to its computer information system that now links several hospitals. â&#x20AC;&#x153;From a point of view of the hospital, per se, we have

sist with pending shortages of health human resources. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Down the road and more and more people retire, now instead of Arnprior or as part of the Queensway-Carleton lab where maybe we had 60 people, now we have 800. If you run into a labour shortage, you were looking for one in 60. Now you are looking for one in 800,â&#x20AC;? he explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is protecting us and providing us with that kind of flexibility down the road, much more than costs savings. It should be the same or better service down the road for the same price,â&#x20AC;? Hanna concluded. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Champlain Local Health Integration Network (LHIN) has been an active partner in the development of this exemplary regional program,â&#x20AC;? said Chantale LeClerc, Champlain LHIN CEO, in a news release. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To transform the health system, we need to foster integration, and EORLA is an excellent example of what can be achieved when providers come together to improve care.â&#x20AC;?

LEO

ID#A140129

ID#A139840

Meet Billy, a neutered male, sable and white German Shepherd mix. This handsome boy is just over a year old and was brought to the shelter as a stray on January 27. He is full gown at 22 kilograms â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a medium-sized bundle of energy ready to settle in to his forever home. Billy loves to go for daily walks â&#x20AC;&#x201C; he is a very active dog! He loves to play with toys but sometimes needs guidance and he needs to learn how to share them. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s looking for a forever home with teens and adults who can take an active role in his training. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d rather not live with cats and would be happiest as the only dog in his new home. Billy beneďŹ tted for participating in the OHS L.E.A.D. (Leadership Education with Adolescents and Dogs) program, where he learned basic obedience and socialization. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got a strong foundation and knows his basic commands, but he needs owners who will provide consistency so he can truly excel.

This neutered male, brown tabby Domestic Longhair cat is about seven years old. He was surrendered to the shelter by his owner on March 26. Leo loves to have his ears rubbed and to tell you about everything about his day. He has an inquisitive mind and a regal presence. Leo gets along best with people who appreciate a strong-willed, spirited cat, and he needs an owner who can handle an independent-minded feline who loves being petted, but who can also be a rough player. No small children or other pets in Leoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s forever home, please! He wants owners who he can have all to himself!

GAINING A BABY DOESNâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;T MEAN LOSING A PET Every year hundreds of animals are surrendered to the Ottawa Humane Society when a new baby arrives. Myths and false information about cats and dogs frighten new parents into giving up their animal friend, who could be a warm and loving companion for a child. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re busting the myths associated with pets and infants so that you can ensure your pet stays with you and your growing family. Myth: Living with pets causes birth defects. Fact: While toxoplasmosis, a diseasecausing parasite found in cat feces, can cause serious birth defects, it is more commonly found in uncooked or undercooked meat. Toxoplasmosis is very uncommon in Canada and transmission through the family cat is extremely rare. Tip: Have someone other than the pregnant woman clean the litter box. If the pregnant woman must clean the litter box, she should wear rubber gloves and a face mask, and thoroughly wash

her hands afterward. She should also wear gloves while gardening to avoid coming into contact with feces from other outdoor cats, and thoroughly wash her hands afterward. Consult your physician if you are concerned about the risks of toxoplasmosis. Myth: My pet will get angry and hurt my child. Fact: While all pets react differently, you should never leave the baby alone with your pet, even after the baby is crawling or walking. This way you can keep an eye on the situation and protect your child from an exuberant pet (and protect your pet from an enthusiastic child). Tip: Make sue you spend time with your pet and baby together, so your pet views the newcomer and the new relationship as a positive experience. Myth: Infants are more susceptible to pet-related allergies. Fact: Many allergies are to things like laundry detergents or new food.

Tip: If your child shows symptoms of allergies, consult an allergist. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t assume allergy symptoms, if they arise, are caused by a pet. Myth: The addition of a new family member is a disruption too great for your pet to tolerate. Fact: A new family member may be difďŹ cult for your pet, and all animals react if their routine is disrupted, or they feel they have been displaced, but these reactions can be minimized by careful preparation and working with your pet before you bring home the baby. Tip: Gradually accustom your pet to spending less time with you. Avoid drastically decreasing attention after the baby comes home, which will likely make your pet feel stressed. If your pet is particularly attached to the motherto-be, another family member should develop a closer relationship with the animal to ensure that the animal doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t suddenly feel abandoned when the new baby arrives.

Please note: The Ottawa Humane Society has many other companion animals available for adoption. Featured animals are adopted quickly!

Cadets commemorate Vimy Ridge battle Jessica Cunha

jessica.cunha@metroland.com

EMC news - A group of Kanata cadets are preparing to travel to Vimy Ridge to honour the 95th anniversary of the legendary First World War battle.

Senior cadets from 2870 Royal Canadian Dragoons cadet corps will be travelling to the Netherlands, Belgium and France as part of the nine-day tour. “I’m very excited. I think it’s a really good opportunity,”

said Sgt. Francesca Martin. “That battle was one of the biggest things in Canadian history.” The Stittsville resident said she’s looking forward to the parade the cadets will join on April 9. “The whole parade with everyone there for the 95th (anniversary) of Vimy is the part I’m looking forward to the most,” said the Grade 11 Holy Trinity Catholic High School student. “We get to be in the trenches. “We still get to see where they were living and how bad it was.” Nineteen cadets were selected for the tour from 2870 Royal Canadian Dragoons. The corps will leave on April 4, travelling to Amsterdam, Bruges, Passchendaele, Vimy, Normandy and Paris.

“I think it’s cool that our commanding officer (CO) is the grandson of the general that led us through that battle,” said Francesca. The commanding officer of the Kanata Dragoons corps, Capt. A. W. Currie, is the grandson of Sir Arthur William Currie. “It’s so great that we all get to go,” said Francesca. “We get to experience everything with our CO.” Around 1,200 cadets from all across Canada will be attending. Sgt. Megan Segstro said she’s looking forward to seeing the various battle sites and taking part in the parade. “I think it’s going to be fun,” said the Grade 9 Nepean High School student. Cadets from the Kanata corps will hand out Canadian flags and pins during their

stay in Amsterdam and helped to create a banner for the Vimy ceremony. “Each cadet signed a little square and these squares are all going to be sewn together,” said Mark Segstro, Megan’s father. “As they do their march during the ceremony on Vimy Ridge they’ll be carrying this giant banner.” Each cadet was also assigned a soldier to research who died overseas. “(They’ll) make a little cross of remembrance that they’ll put on the grave,” said Megan’s mother Barb. Aside from attending the Vimy Ridge 95th Anniversary Commemoration, the cadets will also visit the Anne Frank House, the Juno Beach Centre and DDay beaches, the Louvre and the Notre Dame Cathedral.

Artists to install works at new complex EMC news – Local artists Alisdair MacRae and Negar Seyfollahy have been selected as the winners of the public art competition for the Kanata North Recreation Complex - Skate Plaza. They will develop, design and implement an original commission based on community interaction, dialogue and collaboration towards the final concept and creation of the artwork. In his work, MacRae examines issues of community and exchange, experienced through a hands-on approach that enables social engagement. He has exhibited in group and solo exhibitions in New York City, Halifax, Montréal, Toronto, Vancouver and Ottawa. Seyfollahy has pursued her education in the fields of Archaeology and Heritage Studies and has recently earned a bachelor’s of Architecture from Carleton University. She has been involved in the design and development of various projects ranging from

theatre set design, to housing and mixed-use buildings and most recently a community revitalization draft study for the town of Batawa, Ontario. The Public Art Program commissions artists’ works for display in public spaces. One percent of funds from municipal development projects are set aside for public art. This commission serves to enhance the unique character of the space giving it a sense of identity while ensuring that art is accessible to everyone. The City’s Community Arts program initiated a request for qualifications to integrate art into the new Kanata North Recreation Complex - Skate Plaza while engaging the community in the artistic process. The selection committee included community members and took into consideration the artist resume and experience with the community collaborative process. For more information about the new public art, visit ottawa.ca/arts or call 3-1-1.

Season of the kitten, once again Well, at least it isn’t as bad as last year. We should only have two litters of kittens born this spring. Last year we had ten. When the kittens just kept a comin’, under every shelf, behind every hay bale and in every hay feeder last spring, I decided we had to take drastic measures to control the cat population on the Fisher farm. Many farms just practice the survivalof-the-fittest rule for their feral barn cats. Every winter they lose a few of the less hearty cats to the cold, and to other common barn cat ailments. They feed minimal amounts of dry food, to encourage the cats to hunt rodents in the barn. If their cat population gets a little too healthy and prolific, they control it by culling some of the cats. It’s definitely a controversial subject. When I moved into the farm five years

paying for medication and treatment, only to see these weak kittens succumb to their illnessanyway. I mixed Accidental es my own homeopathFarmwife ic medicines, bought quality cat food and provided them with a warm, dry place to sleep. The next year we had ten cats. The third year we had twenty. The males came and went, after fighting for the leadership position, but the females stuck around. Last year all twelve females had litters. Forty kittens were born. I put an ad on kijiji.com and over the next six months I adopted out thirty-seven kittens. Here’s how I did it. The kittens that were born in the stable were easy to

ago, the Farmer had about six cats, he figures. He put down one bowl of food a day and occasionally they would get table scraps for a treat. The first time I looked out the patio door and saw a tiny kitten sitting there, I was hooked. The mother cat had fed her kittens in the hayloft for a few weeks, but when they were old enough to start wandering, she brought them up to the farmhouse. Perhaps she thought I would help her to care for them. She was right. Smart kitty cat. I washed and medicated weepy, infected eyes. I took the worst cases to the vet,

Now she has a collection of stuffed toys, all kitten-sized, that she carries around the house in her mouth. I spayed ten cats last year. I missed two. One went into hiding when she saw her friends being caught in the live trap and carted off, one by one. The other was caught in the cage, but when I opened it she darted out, climbed up my pantleg, jumped over my head and escaped out the open door. She freaked me out so much I decided not to try to catch her again last year. The other day I went out to the barn and there were the two mamas that I missed last year, waddling around, hugely pregnant again. Now I have to find homes for two more litters. And then I have to catch the mamas—perhaps the smartest mamas in the barn—and get them spayed. Does anyone want a kitten?

catch and handle every day, so they quickly became tame and easy to adopt out by the time they were eight weeks old. I soon learned what an eight week old barn cat looks like. It’s typically smaller than a domestic cat. The ‘extra wild’ kittens had to be caught and wrapped tightly in a towel, or they would shred my arms with their tiny claws. I am scarred for life. Then I would take them in the house and down to the spare bedroom in the basement, which became a kitty nursery until they were tame and adopted. I handled them every day if possible, until they were ready to trust and accept being touched. When Sheila, our self-proclaimed house cat had kittens, she let some of the other kittens nurse from her too. She was a very helpful wet nurse. As her charges, biological and otherwise, were adopted out one by one, she would come and sit by my feet and complain loudly: “you give them to me, you make me feed them, then you take them away?!”

Area car dealer wins lottery prize derek.dunn@metroland.com

EMC news – The tickets sat on his dresser for a couple of days before Percy Wall bothered to see if he’d won. The owner of a used car dealership on Daniel Street, Wall isn’t one for playing the lottery very often. Good thing he decided to get a Lotto 6/49 – with Encore – for the March 7 draw. Wall took home the $100,000 prize in that draw, $100,010 to be specific. “I wasn’t that excited,” Wall said of the moment he discovered that he held the winning ticket. “I said, ‘Oh, that’s nice.’ It didn’t hit me right away, I guess.” He chalks the win up to purchasing the tickets at the Ultramar on Madawaska Boulevard. “That’s the lucky store,” Wall said, chuckling. He drove down to Toronto on Monday to claim his prize. He’s had a lot of phone calls since then, mostly folks congratulating him, saying it’s nice to see a local person win, and

that he deserved it. Wall is taking it in stride, saying $100,000 isn’t all that much money, that it will barely cover the cost of a couple of nice cars. Even $1 million, he said, doesn’t go far these days. Two nice homes will cost more than that, he said. “I’ll pay some bills off with it. It helps to take a bit of pressure off,” he said. “It’s nice to have, but it’s not a lot of money anymore.”

Your Children’s Aid To Call or Not to Call? This is a time of fiscal restraint, not only for the government or publicly funded agencies such as the CAS, but also for families.

New hat sparks unlikely smile from minister’s wife EMC lifestyle - “A real saint, that’s what she is,” Mother said for the umpteenth time that Saturday morning. “We think we’re poor ... now that’s poor!” The conversation was between Mother and my sister Audrey, and it must have been very important because I wasn’t brought into the discussion. “Little ears!” Audrey said nodding ever so slightly in my direction. Mother had emptied out the blue sugar bowl of every cent of her egg money and put it in her little change purse. We were heading into

Renfrew for the week’s supplies, and that day my sister and I were going too. That in itself was strange. Audrey and I were usually left at home to do house chores. But it was the day before Easter Sunday, and just maybe there would be a few store-bought chocolate eggs on Mother’s list. We headed right for Walker’s Store, bypassing Scott’s Hardware and Ritza’s Drug Store, which were always visited by Mother on a Saturday. Mother and Audrey moved like they had a purpose and I followed behind trying desper-

ately to keep up. They went right to the lady’s hat department. Such an array. It was enough to dazzle your eyes. Every colour, every shape, and all bedecked with ribbons and silk flowers. Mauve seemed to be the “in” colour that year. Mother and Audrey tried on just about every hat on the big long counter, and even the hats that were on silver painted plaster heads. “Too fancy,” Mother said. “Too many flowers and not enough ribbon” Audrey said, as they tried on one after the other. Finally, one appealed to both of them. It was plainer than I fancied, but then I didn’t have anything to say in the matter. I was only glad they picked a mauve one. Straw it was. With a wide ribbon. Only one small dark purple velvet flower was on the very front of the hat. Mother took it over to the counter and counted out $1.25 cents. I wasn’t sure if Mother or my sister Audrey would be wearing it on Easter Sunday to church. But it would sure be a lot fancier than the ones both had been wearing for years. Mother seemed to be in a hurry that Saturday. The stops at Scott’s Hardware and Ritza’s Drug store were barely long enough for me to get out of the buggy and back in before we headed out of Renfrew to the Northcote Side Road. Back at the farm, I was the

first off the buggy, since I had to forego my usual stop at the train station to use the bathroom, because Mother seemed to be in such a hurry. When I rounded the corner to go back into the house, Audrey was unpacking the few packages, and I could see Mother heading out the lane again with the buggy, and with Queenie at a good trot. I guessed she was going to Briscoe’s General Store for something she had forgotten. Easter Sunday morning was a special day for me. My hair had been tied up in rags all night, my best dress washed and starched, and my short white gloves sparkling clean. Of course, I wouldn’t put them on until we were ready to walk into church, where every one would be in their very best clothes, and those who could afford them would be sporting something brand new. Alas, that wasn’t my sister Audrey’s or my fate. I was astonished to find Mother was wearing the same old hat she had worn on Easter Sunday for years. “Aren’t you going to wear your new hat, Mother?”

I asked. “Not today, Mary ... now hurry, we’ll be late for church.” We went right up to the front pew where we always sat. Directly across from us the minister’s wife always sat ramrod straight and alone. My brother Emerson always said he thought she went to church through the night, because it never mattered how early we got there, she was always there before us. Always in the same black dress with the little white lace collar and the same black felt hat which she wore winter and summer. Never looking left or right. I couldn’t believe my eyes! There she was, in the same dress, but in the hat Mother had bought at Walker’s Store the day before. I let out a gasp and poked Audrey on the knee. She put a finger to her lips telling me to be quiet. The service started with the organ gasping out the first hymn and the minister, climbing up into the little pulpit at the front of the church. I couldn’t take my eyes off the minister’s wife. And then she did something very unusual. She turned her head and looked right at Mother. She nodded ever so slightly, and gave the faintest smile, and then turned her face back to her husband. The first Hymn, ‘Christ the Lord has Risen today’ echoed through the church. R0011338743

FOOD

Pork, orange and sweet potato make a meal in a dish EMC lifestyle - Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always nice to come across a recipe for a main course thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to prepare and that combines the cooking of meat and potatoes in one dish. In this recipe, pork chops, sweet potatoes and orange slices are cooked together for a tasty main course. This is a good dish to plan for the next time you have company. It has lots of flavor, and looks as if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve spent hours in the kitchen. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also convenient to prepare without a lot of last-minute fussing. Because it takes about an hour to cook, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have time to spend visiting with your guests. PORK AND SWEET POTATO COMBO

4-6 lean pork chops 2 tbsp. olive oil or vegetable oil 4 medium sweet potatoes 1 medium orange 1/2 cup of orange juice 1/4 cup water 1/2 cup brown sugar 1/8 tsp. salt 1/8 tsp. cinnamon Trim any excess fat from the meat, and discard the fat. Heat a large frying pan over medium heat, and add the oil. Lightly brown the meat on both

sides in the pan. Remove the meat from the pan as soon as itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s browned. Peel the sweet potatoes, and cut them into 1/2â&#x20AC;? thick slices. Arrange the slices over the bottom of a 13x9â&#x20AC;? baking dish. Slice the orange thinly, and arrange the slices over the potatoes. Place the browned pork chops on top. In a small bowl or measuring cup, combine the orange juice, water, brown sugar, salt and cinnamon. Pour this over the meat. Bake, covered, at 350 for 45 minutes. Uncover, and bake another 15 to 20 minutes, or until the sweet potatoes are cooked through. Serves 4-6

NEWSPAPER ADVERTISING gets read. gets remembered. gets results

With so many advertising mediums dividing the attention of potential customers, newspapers remain the most effective source for reaching consumers. Why? Simply put, newspapers reach more people, more often. Highly portable and highly visible, newspaper ads go with people and stay with them. That means your business is more likely to be on their minds when theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in the market for related products or services. When it comes to spending your advertising dollars, make the choice thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tried and true: newspaper advertising works harder for you.
