News – The best and brightest of West Carleton’s business community are set to be recognized in a special way. And there’s still time to have your say about who will take home the hardware at the 2014 People’s Choice Business Awards hosted by the West Ottawa Board of Trade. Online nominations are open until Feb. 3. Visit pcba.kanatachamber.com or westottawabot.com. Finalists will be announced after voting closes and winners will be honoured at the Feb. 20 gala at Brookstreet Hotel. The annual awards have become an important feature of the business community, said board of trade member and past citizen of the year, Greg LeBlanc,

a West Carleton businessman. “It has become really important to the businesses,” said LeBlanc. It also inspires some friendly competition and unique promotions. “It’s elevated the business practices and helped people focus on what it is they’re trying to - all those elements of service that are so important,” he said. There are some great things happen-

ing in local business. “Business in general has become a much more important element of the activity around here,” he said. “We want to encourage that, as well.” Different businesses inform and engage their customers in different ways in the quest for votes, which can be fun, said LeBlanc. The event itself is a great evening out, he added. “It’s a fantastic gala event of an evening,” he said. “It has become our own ‘Oscars.’ It’s a fun evening and it’s great to look back on the year in business - who’s done new things and what existing businesses are doing a terrific job.” West Carleton continues to be a great place, said LeBlanc.

News – The candidate who finished second in the last municipal election is the first to officially sign up to run in West Carleton-March. James Parsons, who secured almost 15 per cent of the vote compared to incumbent Coun. Eli El-Chantiry’s 77 per cent, or 1,200 votes compared to 6,239 of a possible 8,061, intends to campaign on road rehabilitation and tax stability. See JAMES, Page 18

Film shot partly in Kinburn wins film festival awards DENIS ARMSTRONG Metro Ottawa

News - Ottawa filmmakers Brendan McNeill and Nick Hillier’s challenge was to make a movie in eight minutes or less. What they came up with was an action comedy called Wired that recently won two prizes at the 2013 Digi60 Digital Filmmaker’s Festival. You can see an embedded version below (a caution, if you are at work or there’s kids around — it’s got all the violence and foul language you’d expect from a mod-

ern action movie, so be warned), you can also watch it on Vimeo and eventually, on the Digi60 home page www.digi60.org. Produced on a shoestring budget in eight weeks on location at the City Centre building and in Kinburn, Wired is an hyper-violent buddy comedy about an undercover cop who has infiltrated the mob. In a scant seven minutes 30 seconds, it covers as much story as most action films do in 90 minutes, with plenty leftover for car chases and guns galore. Imagine Bad Boys with Will Ferrell,� said Hillier, 31, who co-wrote, co-directed and

starred in the film and who co-owns True Bearing Pictures film company with producer McNeil. “We wanted the viewer to not know what to expect next. Keep them guessing. We packed a lot into eight minutes.� Wired beat out eight other locally-produced shorts to win overall best film by an experienced filmmaker, and best technical film at the capital region’s annual digital film festival. Its cinematography and editing are as impressive as its choreographed action sequences and snappy dialogue. To up their game, Hillier and McNeill partnered with three of Ottawa’s most respected filmmakers, producer Richard Towns, direc Metrtor Nick Lacelle and cinematographer Adrian Langley, who gave “Wired� a clean and

thoroughly stylish look. The results speak for themselves. It’s probably too early to say, but Hillier admits that the experience of making “Wired� is making him reconsider the kinds of films he and McNeill will make in the future — fewer straight comedies and experiment with horror action comedies. He also wants to collaborate more with Towns, Lacelle and Langley on more short films for the web. “We’d love to be putting things forward for theatrical release, movies good enough for people to pay to see,� says Hillier. “But for now, making movies for online is a good building experience.�

Catholic board candidate campaigns on transportation issues Derek Dunn derek.dunn@metroland.com

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Catholic board incumbent has won the last three trustee elections by acclamation. That wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be the case this time around. A City of Ottawa employee has tossed his backpack into the ring. Ken Gordon, husband and father of three kids new to the school system, is campaigning to become trustee of West Carleton-March/ Stittsville-Kanata West/ Rideau-GoulbournOsgoode. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have seen a lot of changes that need to be made, but a lot has stayed the same,â&#x20AC;? Gordon said, zone 1 candidate for the Ottawa Catholic School Board (OCSB). It includes Holy Spirit, Sacred Heart High, St. Catherine, St. Isidore, St. Leonard, St. Mark High School, St. Mary (Gloucester), St. Michael (Corkery), St. Michael (Fitzroy), St. Philip, and St. Stephen. Gordon has two main planks in his platform: leveraging technology and cost savings.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;People seem to be afraid of new technologies. I would like to take the schools into the 21st century,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And I see a lot of waste on transportation to and from. We could work better with the Ottawa Student Transportation KEN GORDON Authority (OSTA).â&#x20AC;? He favours spending more on smartboards, computers and other high tech gadgetry to prepare students for tomorrowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s workplace and social world. The former Fed Ex employee who in 2010 became the superintendent of OCTranspo also wants to see shared bussing for rural students from both the public and Catholic boards. Gordon advocates for higher standards among those transporting students in private vans and other non-authority vehicles. Licence

Fatal airplane crash cause remains a mystery rapid descending turn,â&#x20AC;? says the safety board in a news release. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The investigation concluded that the pilot lost control of the aircraft for undetermined reasons and it collided with terrain. In addition, it was noted that the avionics system had the capability to record data essential to the accident investigation, but the recording medium was destroyed in the accident.â&#x20AC;? The safety board did identify as a possible factor an increased risk of incapacitation due to hypoxia (a condition in which the body or a region of the body is deprived of adequate oxygen supply). â&#x20AC;&#x153;This can happen following depressurization when aircraft operate above 13 000 feet above sea level without an available emergency oxygen supply,â&#x20AC;? explained the report.

Staff



News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A Transportation Safety Board of Canada report released last Friday sheds little light on why a plane crashed near Calabogie in October 2012, killing the pilot. The privately-owned aircraft piloted by Robert John Reany of Port Elgin left the Carp Airport on Oct. 8 before inexplicably crashing into the woods in a steep dive at mid-day. The 74year-old pilot, the planeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sole occupant, was killed on impact in an isolated, rugged forested area near Centennial Lake northwest of Calabogie. Reany, an experienced pilot, was heading back home to Goderich for Thanksgiving dinner with his family when the crash occurred. He was flying a single-engine, six-seater Socata TBM 700 aircraft. He had flown to Carp early in the day, then filed a flight plan to return to Goderich. The safety board report indicates that Reany had altered his destination to Wiarton, Ontario, shortly after takeoff. Air traffic control cleared the aircraft to climb to 26,000 feet above sea level. The aircraft continued its climb to that level, but then entered a right-hand turn, which quickly developed into a spiral dive, says the report. At 12:19 p.m., the aircraft struck the ground at a high speed and was destroyed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Given the high level of destruction and the fact that recorded data was limited to air traffic control recordings, it was not possible to conclude with any certainty why the aircraft entered the

requirements should be hirer; criminal record checks should be renewed annually; and the smell of cigarette smoke should be banned from work vehicles. According to OSTA, pay is low for private van contractors making it difficult to guarantee smoke-free vehicles. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This practice of transporting students to school in smoke-filled vehicles is deplorable,â&#x20AC;? Gordon penned on his website. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This will be one of the first changes I will bring forth is elected as OCSB Trustee for Zone 1.â&#x20AC;? He noted that at $21.6 million, transportation accounts for 5 per cent of the total budget, second only to teacher and administration pay. OCSBâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2013/14 budget shows that 80 per cent of the budget ($356.2 million) is allocated to salaries and benefits, leaving 20 cents of every

dollar to cover all remaining costs associated with providing education, Gordon pointed out. John Curry has represented zone 1 since 2000. Gordon laughingly replied to a question on whether he intends to run a negative campaign. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not out here to paint John Curry in a bad picture. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know a lot about him; just a little on how he votes and where his priorities are,â&#x20AC;? Gordon said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would like to get my platform out there. If I had money for negative ads, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d probably find someplace better to spend it.â&#x20AC;? A lifelong resident of Kanata and Ottawa, Gordon is married to stay-at-home mom Crystal, and father to children ages 4, 6, and 7. He lives in Brookside, behind the Sobeyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on March Road. His website is ken4trustee.com.

Business awards first under chamber’s new name Blair Edwards

News - The nominations are in, and voting has already been fast and furious for the 2014 People’s Choice Business Awards. Only three days after the nominations closed on Jan. 6, the West Ottawa Board of Trade had received more than 5,000 votes for the list of 209 candidates. “There is a real broad range of businesses all

across Kanata, West Carleton and Goulbourn, so we’re really pleased,” said Rosemary Leu, the board’s executive director. “Last year’s total number of votes was 18,000, and that was a record; to have 5,000 votes in not even three days is incredible.” This is the first year the board of trade, formerly known as the Kanata Chamber of Commerce, will be hosting the awards under the banner of its new name.

Last September, the chamber voted to change its name to better reflect the geographical diversity of its members, who hail from Goulbourn, West Carleton and Kanata. Residents can vote online in each of the 23 categories, divided geographically in Kanata, West Carleton and Goulbourn, from now until Feb. 3 by visiting pcba.kanatachamber.com or westottawabot.com. The list of finalists for each category will

be announced a few days after voting closes on Feb. 3, with the winners announced at the awards’ gala, which will be held at the Brookstreet Hotel on Feb. 20. Television personality Kurt Stoodley has agreed to return this year as the event’s Master of Ceremonies.

Community contributions build for Project Sandhills David Johnston

Community - With its Annual General Meeting Sunday Feb. 2, The Constance and Buckham’s Bay Community Association (CBBCA) is poised for progress. In addition to electing a new slate of officers, the 1 p.m. meeting at the community centre will focus on propelling the Project Sandhills over the top. Dozens of fundraising events, generous private and corporate donations, and nearly 100 new memberships have vaulted the community centre expansion project forward. $1,1M IN BANK

Committed funding now stands at $1,112,000, says CBBCA past president Len Russell. “The tender of the design and engineering has closed, the winning bidder has been determined. Once awarded, the three to four month design and engineering process is a critical count-down on our funding. It will establish the build cost and minimum community contribution. “We expect a minimum build cost of $1.5

million which, after considering in-kind contributions, means we need to have committed funding of about $1.3 million. Reaching $1.1 million in 2013 was an important milestone.” 54 NEW MEMBERS

Russell said, “We know November was great with all of the events and donations, nearly $50,000 worth, but since Dec. 1 we raised another $31,000 from donations, 60 membership renewals, and 17 five-year memberships.” The $31,000 month total turns into $62,000 in committed funds once matched by the City of Ottawa.” “We have 54 new supporters in 34 days. Once you add in October and November, we already have more 2014 members than in all of 2012,” said Russell. “I expected a lean month but instead it has been exceptional.” At present, the community must come up with another $165,000 to match city funding and corporate donations-in-kind to raise the remaining $788,000 needed to see the project to fruition. Russell is confident

the funds will be raised so that construction can start on the building addition this summer. “We are looking at January to April for the design and engineering to be completed,” said Russell. “The construction tender will be out in May. We would like to break ground in June but it might be later. We are in really good shape.” Russell is also excited about the design process. “The new board and some members of the community will get to work with world class architects to not only create the new building but to design the end state for the whole facility. It will be a once in a lifetime opportunity to weave together the assets we have with what we are building to create one new facility. DESIGN EVOLVES

“There will of course be compromises but with every donation the choices become easier. The website will be updated often in February as the design evolves and we close in on the concept design public meeting in March.” The CBBCA is hoping its increased mem-

bership will help to fill out the ranks of the management committee, which has a number of vacancies from last year.

The jokeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on the voters

W

inston Churchill once remarked that democracy is the worst form of the government ... except for all the others. The superiority of democracy as a system of government rests on the bedrock of freely held elections, which allow anyone to put their name forward as a candidate, whatever their race, creed, sex or religion or point of view. In Canada, anyone can grow up to run in a municipal, provincial or federal election. But sometimes they shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. Case in point, Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s upcoming municipal election. Every four years, Elections Ottawa takes in a flood of applications from those wishing to run as trustees, councillors or as mayor. During the 2010 municipal election, 20 candidates put their names forward to run as mayor, which is wonderful, so long as all of them are legitimate candidates, not one-issue wonders, hoping to use the campaign trail as an opportunity to highlight their cause du jour. Even worse, some candidates decide to enter the race as â&#x20AC;&#x153;a joke,â&#x20AC;? having no serious expectation or even interest of winning the election. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re only about a month into the nine-month election campaign trail, but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve already come

across one. George Marko, now running for councillor of Gloucester-Southgate, who now says he is going to take the campaign seriously, but originally registered as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;joke.â&#x20AC;? Joke candidates are at best an amusing distraction and at worst an opportunity to muddy the waters for the electorate, who, for the most part, would prefer to focus their limited time and attention on the platforms of legitimate candidates. It only costs $100 to $200 and a few minutes of time filling out form at the city services desk to qualify someone to run as trustee, councillor or mayor. On the other hand, the electorate is stuck with these joke and one-issue candidates for a year, enduring their presence in dozens of debates, all-candidates meetings, radio interviews and the election coverage provided by the media. Instead of registering as a candidate, we would suggest one-issue candidates find a more productive use for their time and their money, perhaps as donations to a charitable cause, or as a campaign contribution for a legitimate candidate who supports their cause. We should put up a sign: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wanted: municipal representatives. Only serious candidates need apply.â&#x20AC;?

This is the electronic cigarette, getting more and more publicity every day. Last week e-cigarettes were smoked on the Golden Globes telecast. So disturbed were a number of U.S. senators that they sent out a letter blasting the organizers for glamourizing smoking. People are taking this seriously. It is a strange thing to become a public policy issue â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a battery operated thingy that draws steam through a fluid cartridge that could contain nicotine, but also could taste like chocolate or just about any other flavour.

the vicinity. So banning e-cigarettes in public places would be like banning soup, the argument goes. The counter-argument â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and this is what must make city councillorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; brains hurt â&#x20AC;&#x201C; is that the smoking of e-cigarettes will eventually lead to the smoking of real cigarettes. E-cigarettes are a kind of gateway drug, in other words. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve heard that argument in relation to other substances and it is a persuasive one. In the jargon, what critics are saying is that allowing e-cigarettes to be smoked in public places will â&#x20AC;&#x153;re-normalizeâ&#x20AC;? smoking. Over the past decades, smoking has been made abnormal: the percentage of people who smoke has declined dramatically. It is about 20 per cent now in this country. It was 27 per cent 15 years ago, and a whopping 61 per cent 50 years ago. Some of that change happened because cigarettes became very expensive. Some of it happened because people just smartened up. But some of it happened because smoking was no longer normal â&#x20AC;&#x201C; you didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t light up in someoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dining room anymore; you didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t light up in the movies or on an airplane; you didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t light up in a shopping centre; you didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t light up at work, unless you stepped

out onto the street. That didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel normal either. Will all those gains be lost because you can now smoke something that looks like a cigarette but isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t and doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t in fact emit smoke? Perhaps it depends on how normal it looks. The e-cigarette is, according to one manufacturer, â&#x20AC;&#x153;an integrated structure made up of a cartridge, an atomization chamber, a smart chip controller and a built-in lithium battery.â&#x20AC;? That seems weird. But then, weirdness has never been an absolute deterrent. Talking to yourself on the street looked weird, until people got used to the look of cellphones. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to be a city councillor when this one comes around. Are you saving the public or just banning weirdness?

Ice storms can have lethal effects on birds Lifestyle - As everyone well knows, this winter has experienced a rollercoaster of weather. There has been extreme cold accompanied by chilling winds. However, most of our wild neighbours are well equipped to deal with frigid conditions and survived those spells. Recently the temperatures have risen well above the freezing mark with rain thrown into the climatic mix. This too has posed little problem for local animals. But between the two temperature extremes have been periods of freezing rain. Of all the challenges winter brings, freezing rain is undoubtedly the most lethal. Freezing rain affects animals in a variety of ways. Any animal exposed directly to it can have feathers or fur covered in ice. This ice not only reduces a coatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to keep its owner warm but also adds weight to wings and tails, making it difficult for birds to fly. Not only does this cause extra energy to be burned, it also slows a bird down, making it prone to being caught by predators. There is an even more serious problem posed by freezing rain. When the snowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s surface becomes so hard and smooth that it supports our weight and

Michael Runtz Natureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Way makes us slip when we walk on it, it affects wild animals in more deadly ways. Small mammals such as mice and voles under the snow have difficulty in getting to the surface. If carbon dioxide levels build up where they roam, the ice layer can prevent them from tunnelling to the surface to acquire fresh air. Ice also creates a serious problem for the animals that eat mice and voles. Coyotes, Red Foxes, Barred Owls, and Red-tailed Hawks are but a few of the myriad predators that eat small rodents. When the snow is soft, those hunters fearlessly plunge into it after locating a meal with their refined hearing. But when an ice barrier coats the snow, predators go hungry and some actually starve. And even if it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t starve, a predator can be seriously injured in its attempts to break through the

ice. Recently there have been reports of Snowy Owls with wings or legs damaged during efforts to catch animals under the ice. Ice also affects seed-eating birds. If seeds are buried in ice, Dark-eyed Juncos and other sparrows go hungry. Ruffed Grouse are affected by more than a lack of edible resources. On cold nights they dive into the snow and bury themselves below the surface. In their snug snow chambers, grouse spend frigid nights in relative comfort. But if temperatures rise and freezing rain falls overnight, the snow den becomes a snow tomb. And even if they are not trapped, the ice makes it impossible for grouse to exploit the snowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s insulation when temperatures plunge once more. The freezing rain this winter has brought severe hardship and likely many of our wild neighbours will not survive its effects. While this might make Nature seem cruel and uncaring, she is really nothing more than indifferent; Death is as every bit an integral part of her as is life. This is simply Natureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s way. The Nature Number is 613387-2503; email is mruntz@ start.ca.

We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t name the males, because they will be sold by the end of their first year anyway. But naming the females just makes it easier for us to keep track of them. We bought Ginger and Big Betty at auction, and I named them (although the Farmer insists on using the prefix â&#x20AC;&#x153;Uglyâ&#x20AC;?). Anastasia named Mocha. Julie was born on the 1st of July. Q-tip looks like her tail has a cotton tip. Then we have two white-faced black heifers I have named â&#x20AC;&#x153;Left Eyeâ&#x20AC;? and Lola and four pure black girls. One of those four has a big curl on her head, like Gina Lollobrigida. She will be named Gina, and the other three can be Rosie, Bessie and Kate. But I still canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell them apart. Maybe I can get them some kind of scarves to wear that will distinguish them from each other. Or brand them with a wee smattering of paint on their ebony sides. As their personalities emerge it will be easier to tell them from each other.

Reader is not amused by columnist’s defence of Canada Post To the Editor: Having spent a week reading impassioned defences of home delivery and fending off requests to sign petitions to retain it, reading Charles Gordon’s recent column was the last straw. Mr. Gordon is the reason CPC should be privatized and surface mail thrown open to competition. He exposes himself for a big-government nanny-statist in the first few paragraphs of his column. He is basically saying that since CPC (“The Government”) won’t deliver his Christmas Cards to his family members’ door, he will no longer feel the need to express love for his family at this special time of year. Basically, he has made “The Government” responsible for his ability and willingness to communicate his feelings to his loved ones: If the government won’t help me tell my family that I love them, then I won’t say it. You are a class act sir. I suppose this means that if I were one of your dear friends or family members and I moved to a location that does not currently have home delivery, you would have stopped telling me how much I mean to you. He further goes on to assume that seniors and people with mobility issues only live in the urban core currently serviced by home delivery. There are plenty of people in the suburbs who are getting by with super-boxes just fine

right now. Yes... even seniors. He puts the cherry on top by coming out and saying what he really feels: CPC should be expected to run at a loss and we should just suck it up and accept it. All for the sake of continuing home delivery wherever Mr Gordon lives I suppose. No

need to look at alternatives, Mr Gordon has it all figured out. Charge working families higher taxes or Mr Gordon won’t tell his family he loves them anymore. M. Chiviendacz Orleans

I am an apprentice Power Line Maintainer at Hydro Ottawa, and I have returned from Toronto where our crews were helping with restoration efforts after the storm. I can honestly say that this was one of the most rewarding and humbling experiences I have ever had, albeit one of the toughest. In my two years as an apprentice, I have learned that, above all, when someone needs our help we answer the call. So when our friends and colleagues from Hydro One and Toronto Hydro asked for help during the recent storm in southern Ontario, I knew I wanted to go. When we first arrived in the areas most affected by the storm, for the first few days we worked 16 hours a days. We saw downed trees, the city was icy, and people were struggling without power. This was my first exposure to anything like this because I was just a kid during Ottawa’s 1998 Ice Storm. Nothing could have really prepared me for working in these conditions. This kind of work is dangerous and you can be injured if you make the wrong move, especially given the bad weather. Safety is our number one priority, but as we often say, we have the safest, high-risk job out there. Waking up Christmas morning without my family was hard, but I knew that people were counting on us to get their power back on. And that was our motivation. Working on a storm recovery operation and seeing the direct impact our work was having on people’s lives is definitely the most rewarding experience I’ve had as an apprentice. was also amazed to see how the communities came together and how kind they were to us. We couldn’t walk down the street without a word of thanks from a stranger, or an offer of hot coffee to warm us on those cold days. We would be driving around in our trucks and people would be waving and thanking us for coming. I was particularly moved when one family, whose power had been out for many days, came out to thank us, tears streaming down their faces. For me, that made it all worthwhile and taught me a lot about what it means to be a Power Line Maintainer. To complete my training and become a journeyperson Power Line Maintainer takes 8,000 hours of on the job training; but the experiences I had during this ice storm, working alongside such seasoned and hard-working guys, are definitely some of the most valuable and memorable I will ever have.

Hockey enthusiasts Kyle Weedmark and Tanner Clouthier, right, duel for the puck as Brandan Rousselle, left, and Alex Daley get ready to pounce as they enjoy the sun and excellent skating conditions at the Carp outdoor rink. The four braved the -20 C to get some exercise on the rink Dec. 30.

Lifestyle - For those with snow piled all around, winter can be a time to stay in the house and wait for spring, but it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to be. Why not use all the snow to have fun and one of the best ways to do that is to build yourself a skating rink. It can be in your backyard or even in your driveway. The What To Do With The KidsR website has simplified the task so that you and your children can put down the smart phones and get outside for some exercise, fresh air and fun. Find a flat area close enough that your garden hose can reach. Stomp on the snow in that area to pack it down. Have the kids run around on it. Once itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s packed, knock

off the high points and fill in the holes with a shovel so that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s somewhat flat. Sprinkle a light layer of water on it and let it freeze. This may take just a few hours or overnight depending on the temperature. Repeat with another light sprinkle until the entire surface has a thin layer of ice. Air pockets can be removed by stepping on them so that your next layer of water fills it in. You want at least two inches of ice before skating on it and make sure there is nothing sticking out of the surface such as rocks or branches. The secret to great ice is to water late at night and often but not too thick to allow it time to freeze between

layers. Snow acts as an insulator, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to keep it shovelled off. You can even use the snow you shovel off to make yourself seating on the side. There are more tips and tricks available at www. whattodowiththekids.com, including how to make a hockey rink and how to turn your backyard into an almost NHL-style venue. What To Do With The KidsR is the website that adults can go to when they want to know what to do with their kids. It features games, crafts, party ideas, downloads, special reports, product reviews, a directory of kid and family-friendly places to go, and a market place of products and services.

Marguirite gets her pay-back for being a show-off Lifestyle - It was the year bad Marguirite appeared at the Northcote School all decked out in a white fur coat. She vowed it was the most expensive fur you could buy, but my brother Emerson and his best friend Cecil, after examining it closely, said it was nothing but plain rabbit. The very thought of the number of precious little rabbits, which I loved with a passion, who had lost their fur to make that coat, was enough to turn my stomach. And certainly didn’t do anything to make me like Marguirite any better! It was also the year we had more snow than anyone could remember. It was banked all around the school yard. And at the back, where a board fence separated the yard from the open-air rink, the Senior Fourth boys had piled the snow high, creating a slide that only went downwards about six or seven feet, but it was enough to give us lots of fun

Mary Cook’s Memories MARY COOK

at recess, sliding down on our bottoms, or on opened-up flat cardboard boxes the boys had hauled from Briscoe’s General Store. That day wasn’t any different from any other inside the one-room school house. Miss Crosby ran the place like an army general, and even though Marguirite wanted to keep her coat on, Miss Crosby wasn’t having any of that nonsense. “It’ll smell of cow byre,” Marguirite said, glaring at the boys who had to milk cows before coming to school. But one look from Miss Crosby told her to get it off and hang it on a hook at the back of the

room just like everyone else. We couldn’t wait for recess. The half hour would be spent sliding down the mound of snow in the school yard, and Miss Crosby had warned the Senior Fourth boys that everyone got a turn or they would suffer her wrath when recess was over.It didn’t take long for us girls to get on our snow suits, galoshes, hats and mitts, and the boys into their heavy jackets and gum rubbers, let me tell you! And just before we were heading out, Miss Crosby caught Marguirite by her sleeve and told her she had had a note from her Mother, and there was no sliding down the hill for her in her white fur coat! Well, there she stood at the bottom of the little mound, looking for all the world like an orphan as the rest of us careened down the little hill, squealing with delight all the way. Both Emerson and Cecil were standing at the top, and as soon as

anyone fell to the mound to begin the slide, they gave a good push and away we went like a bullet, landing in the soft snow at the bottom. I was immediately suspicious of Emerson and Cecil, after they had whispered, grinned from ear to ear, and invited Marguirite to have a slide. “Don’t worry about your coat. You can sit on this big piece of cardboard, and you won’t even touch the snow.” Well, it didn’t take long for Marguirite to scurry up the mound, grab a hold of the upper board of the rink fence and prepare herself to sit down on the cardboard the boys had put in place. Well, that’s when all heck broke loose! Just as she was lowering herself, Cecil grabbed the box tossing it aside, Emerson gave Marguirite a mighty push, and down she went, fur coat and all, to the bottom of the mound, screaming all the way. When she stopped, the coat was up around her neck, the fur hat was

nowhere to be seen, and that day she had on blue fleeced lined bloomers like the rest of us. She went roaring into the school like someone possessed. By the time recess was over, Miss Crosby had the coat draped over a chair by the stove, and Cecil had brought in the white fur hat and handed it to the teacher saying with a voice like sugar, “Marguirite must have lost this.” Well, that was the end of the white fur coat at the Northcote School. Joyce said it didn’t look any the worse for wear when Marguirite came prancing into the United Church the next Sunday wearing it, and the hat. And even if Miss Crosby knew what had happened outside at the snow slide, she said nothing. My older and wiser sister Audrey said Miss Crosby probably wasn’t any more impressed with the white fur coat than were the rest of us at the Northcote School.

James Parsons campaigns on roads, tax stability Continued from front

“Things can’t keep going the way they are going,” said Parsons, who signed his papers on Jan. 10. “Taxes have more than doubled (since amalgamation) because of these mega projects. And they are still not doing very well on the roads out here.” Although he opposes the airport parkway pathway and similar downtown projects as useless to rural residents, he isn’t campaigning on de-amalgamation.

“You can’t win either way,” Parsons said. The promised savings were never realized, he suggested, but the province – not the city - dictates tax increases through the mill rate. Parsons lives on Loggers Way, one of the roads he wants repaved. He also wants the bridge there and the steel one over Old Highway 17 replaced. The latter will interfere with his commute if not replaced, he added.

Parsons talks extensively about his road and nearby ones. He also speaks about private property issues, usually having to do with government not acting on complaints he makes regarding a neighbour. But he doesn’t admit to being on the opposite side of “Back off government” groups like the Carleton Landowners Association. He said roads such as Kinburn Side from Highway 417 to the village can be repaved through “spending efficiencies.” He

would reject downtown mega projects and put the money toward roads and other basic infrastructure needs. El-Chantiry should have been doing that all along, he indicated. “Eli to me is nothing much more than a yes man. He is very, very little on substance.” He has strong words on where El-Chantiry has been living. Although the councillor has a rental house in Constance Bay he lives in a house in Morgan’s Grant in Kanata North, outside

Ward 5. “He doesn’t even live in West Carleton. He lives in Kanata. How anyone can vote for someone who doesn’t live here is beyond me,” Parsons said. “As for the dictator mayor, Jim Watson, don’t get me started on him.” (El-Chantiry recently announced he bought a house and will move to Carp in spring.) The recent expansion approval at the Carp landfill site, widely opposed by community groups and council, finds a supporter in Parsons. He said dumps are a necessary evil because garbage has to go somewhere. He added that technological advancements to capture smells and runoff has meant fewer and fewer people oppose the job-creating business. His educational background is in forestry and fish and wildlife technology. Although taxes have gone up by the rate of inflation or slightly less during

this council’s term, Parsons said most people don’t get a rate-of-inflation pay raise every year. Income from his landscaping business has plummeted, he indicated. Much of his income used to come from the pesticides side of his business, but when the provincial ban on cosmetic use of pesticides came into effect Parsons’ business was hurt. “Thank you very much, government.” He welcomes campaign contributions, saying the $100 he raised last time had to be bolstered by $5,000 from his own pocket. “It’s not going to be very much of a campaign this time around,” Parsons said. “I’ll be making calls and asking for contributions. If people are going to be apathetic – if that’s the way it’s going to be in West Carleton, I don’t know where democracy is going.” Parsons lives in Vydon Acres with his wife Julie. They have three grown children.

Rural heritage forum in the works for councillor Coun. Scott Moffatt in initial stages of planning discussion, workshops on rural built heritage Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - Built heritage in the rural area needs more attention said Coun. Scott Moffatt, so he’s considering a forum to open that discussion. The idea is preliminary, but a forum discussion and possibly educational workshops could be held as early as this spring, Moffatt said. He originally brought up the idea to be included as part of the public consultation process for Manotick’s secondary plan, a land-use strategy that will outline how the village will develop. The Rideau-Goulbourn councillor’s recent experience

of requesting the Falls House in Manotick village be added to the city’s heritage register opened his eyes to opportunities to recognize and preserve important historic buildings. Adding the home at 5514 Manotick Main St. to the heritage register isn’t the same as designating it as a heritage building. MORE SCRUTINY

Being on the registry means that if the owner wanted to demolish the building, it would receive more scrutiny from the city’s built heritage committee before a permit could be issued to tear it down. The listing flags it to be considered

for a heritage designation before it’s demolished. “Five or six years from now, if someone comes forward with a demolition application, it would trigger a heritage designation consideration and give a 60-day reprieve from demolition,” Moffatt said in November, when the Falls House was added to the list. “It’s a way to protect a home without going through the whole designation process.” Options like heritage register listing are underused in the rural areas, Moffatt said. “I think maybe there are more active groups in the urban area,” he said. There are numerous active historical societies in the rural

This event is designed for an adult audience and will be taking place in the adult areas of the participating branches. Children are welcome in the library, but are not encouraged to participate. This is not a “career fair” but rather an opportunity for customers to engage in direct conversations with “human books” for learning/dialogue purposes. The “human books” that will be in Carp are: s Cop: As a boy, Jeffrey Eva-Gonzalez’s family moved to Canada to escape political persecution in Nicaragua. Here in Ottawa, a police officer shot his gang-involved eldest brother after he failed to put down his knife. Eva-Gonzalez lost a second brother to violence when a stranger attacked him with a knife on an escalator at Bayshore Shopping Centre. Now, Constable EvaGonzalez works on patrol in West Division of the Ottawa Police Service. s Urban Aboriginal: Close to four decades ago Shirley Gagnon left James Bay to study at Algonquin College. For the past seven years this civil servant has co-hosted and produced the community radio program Aboriginal CKCU. s War Vet: In 2007, while patrolling a farmer’s field in Afghanistan as a sniper team leader, Master Corporal Jody Mitic stepped on a landmine. The explosions blew off his foot, and injured his other leg, making a double amputation necessary. After returning to Canada for rehabilitation, Jody reconnected with one of the medics who came to his aid. Now the couple has and had two children. Last year he and his brother placed second in the Canadian version of the reality TV series The Amazing Race. For more information visit the Ottawa Public Library’s website.

POTHOLES ON OUR ROADS Potholes are appearing as a result of recent widely variable weather conditions. It’s routine at this time of year for potholes to appear, especially with freeze-and-thaw conditions. Rain and mild temperatures following a stretch of sub-zero conditions can create stress on the asphalt road surface which can then form potholes.

Spice up for exercise routine by ‘stepping it up’ this winter Lifestyle – What is a great daytime activity that will add some ‘spice’ to your exercise routine this winter? Local dancing instructor Hyacinth Chatterton is urging everyone to consider ‘stepping-it-up’

by line-dancing. The enthusiastic line-dancing instructor points out there are several reasons why people should consider participating in the popular activity. “Keep in mind that, in addition to being

suitable for every age, it also offers many ‘seniorfriendly’ options for the interesting and wide variety of dance moves it presents,” she says. Chatterton stresses that line-dancing is definitely in the “fun-to-do” category, and activates those “good-for-you” hormones. The formats available include Western-Swing, Waltz, Latin Rhythms, Jazz, Country, Cha-Cha, Celtic and many others. As a bonus, signing up with a dancing partKINDERGARTEN INFORMATION SESSION ner is not a requirement, as it often is for some other dance-forms, she Stonecrest Elementary School says.

The City has a $6-million annual budget for filling potholes and in 2013 filled 193,000 potholes. There are currently 12 crews dedicated to filling potholes across the City. Residents are encouraged to use the ServiceOttawa gateway at ottawa.ca or call 3-1-1 to report potholes.

Community – Have the winter blues got you down? January is often considered the most depressing month of the year, with the cold temperatures, short days and the numerous reports of bad weather. Area residents, however, have found a way to combat the season of sadness with the Pakenham Frost Festival. Beginning on Wednesday, Jan. 22 and running until Saturday, Feb. 1, the festival aims to get families out and about to enjoy some wintertime fun. “There are several opportunities during the festival for families to take part in fun activities,” said Shelley O’Connor of the Pakenham Civitan Club. “There’s something for people of all ages.” The festival is a long-time tradition in Pakenham, and has been around for as long as many residents can remember. Held near the beginning of each year, usually in January, the event is meant to help people see the fun in winter, instead of just hanging around inside. “We know it’s cold and not so pleasant outside,” O’Connor said, “but there are plenty of fun things you can do that you can only do in the winter.” And to extend the good times even further this year, the festi-

val is being held over two weekends, instead of the traditional duration of just one weekend. “That way busy families have more opportunities to fit at least one day in with their kids,” O’Connor said.

bearing exercise. “Next, your brainpower is continually ‘in gear’ with ‘fun-challenges’, and receives a beneficial boost as you aim to learn and retain the repetitive sequences presented; these range from the ultra-simple to more involved levels of input and concentration as you progress. These physical benefits all combine to improve muscle tone, agility and also brain-power.” Chatterton said that with its ‘all-ages’ and ‘senior-friendly’ approach, previous experience is not a prerequisite. “Many alternate moves are available and demonstrated for those who prefer to have options for some of the intricate steps. This ensures that each participant enjoys dancing within her/his comfortzone.” To top it all, daytime line-dance programs are conveniently offered in several recreation centre in the area. The pro-

grams will be running again in Almonte, Arnprior, Carleton Place and Pakenham, and with its steady growth in popularity, the activity might also become available at other sites in the Valley, starting with this spring’s sessions. The winter sessions will run from January to mid-March, running from 1:30 to 3 p.m. They are available Mondays at Arnprior’s Nick Smith Centre (613-6237301), Wednesdays at the Carambeck Community Centre in Carleton Place (613-257-1704) and Thursdays through the Town of Mississippi Mills (613-256-1055), alternating between the Almonte and Stewart (Pakenham) community centres. Prospective participants are encouraged to pre-register by contacting Chatterton, a certified bilingual Ontario educator by calling 613-623-0976 or emailing mais-brown@sympatico.ca.

Fascinating ways animals survive winter Many small mammals, bugs find the sweet spot between snow and ground Elizabeth Wiles, Pauline Donaldson Mississippi Valley Field Naturalists

Lifestyle - A delightful, clearly delivered talk to the Mississippi Valley Field Naturalists earlier last year by Patty Summers from the Wild Bird Centre described the varied and intriguing ways wildlife prepare to survive winter. How do they do it? Summers divides wildlife winter-survivor strategies into three categories: outwit, outlast and outplay, with outwit being by far the most widely employed strategy. Outwitting winter, Summers explained, involves turning the tables, knowing the science of cold and of snow and cold water to find the secret, hidden warmth. Fresh snow can be up to 90-95 per cent air and is a good insulator. In the ‘subnivean’ space 15 cm under the snow, small mammals such as mice and voles inhabit a relatively cozy 0 C space between snow and ground. They are not alone there, in fact an entire foodchain inhabits the subnivean space: bacteria, fungus, springtails, spiders, shrews, weasels and more. Likewise aquatic ‘outwitters’ seek out the relative warmth of deep water zones way below the ice. Cooler water sinks and stabilizes at 4 C with no circulation

Wildlife expert Patty Summers poses with a highly specialized winter survivor, a Great Grey Owl, following her talk to the Mississippi Valley Field Naturalists in Almonte earlier this year. and there it has a higher concentration of dissolved oxygen than surrounding layers. Fish here eat less, move less or, like carp, bury themselves in mud. Some aquatic plants have turions which survive in the 4 C water at the bottom of ponds. These turions, or overwintering ‘buds’, sink, but will outwit winter to rise again in spring and grow new plants. Dragon flies stay in the water in the nymph stage. Another outwit strategy is ‘Build

a four season home’. Bees do this. They consume honey for energy and form tight shivering clusters which are 32 C in the middle. Individual bees regularly rotate position in the cluster with bees near the centre trading places with bees on the periphery so there is a better chance for survival. Waste is excreted outside the cluster. Not surprisingly there are challenges faced by the ‘outwitters’, and some will not survive. Life in the subnivean space is risky. The insulating capability of snow depends on its density. Freeze-thaw cycles can compact the snow, reducing its insulating ability, and allowing dangerous levels of carbon dioxide to accumulate, from all the organisms living there. There is also the threat of hunters of the subnivean space. Foxes can hear prey under the snow and can leap and pounce through. Grey owls can locate prey two feet under the snow and plunge through a snow crust that can hold 175 pounds! While outwit involves taking advantage of subnivean and deep water spaces, or building a four-season home during freezing weather, outlast involves becoming dormant and conserving energy. Or, as Summers described it, “dig deep and stay there.” This is the way of

the frog, toad, ant and worm. Earthworms survive six feet underground in a slimy membrane. Ants burrow into the soil or under tree bark. Others such as groundhogs, chipmunks, and woodland jumping mice hibernate below the frost. Frogs and salamanders, who can absorb oxygen (O2) and emit carbon dioxide (CO2) through their skin, go deep underwater, as do turtles, who can survive but must dig very deep. Another slogan of the outlast survivors is “It’s better with friends.” Snakes can’t dig but they gather by the hundreds in tree stumps, holes, or in cracks or caves among rocks and share their warmth. FROGSICLES

Dormancy or hibernation is another key ‘outlaster’ strategy. In an extreme example, some frogs cryopreserve themselves. As ‘frogsicles’ their heart is stopped but their organs stay ‘alive’ with no oxygen or nutrients. They survive fatal freezing damage by eliminating water from inside their cells; no ice is formed inside their cells because, instead of water, cells are high in glucose which does not freeze easily. Box turtles and many insects use a freezetolerant mechanism; the arctic woolly bear caterpillar may freeze and thaw seven times before finding conditions right for it to pupate, often a matter of years. Some animals have a unique supercooling ability; using high sugars or sugar alcohols and excreting waste, they can lower their body temperature below freezing without becoming a solid. Mourning cloaks, slugs, snails, gallwasp larvae do this but it is risky if they touch ice

or if it gets too cold. Perennial plants outlast winter as well, storing nutrients in roots below the frost line. Trees reabsorb valuable nutrients from leaves before the leaves are shed and form buds before winter. Conifers form protects them from snow load and as their roots go past the frost line for water, valves can shut off if ice is present. TURTLES DIG DEEP

Just as there are risks to outwitting winter, there are also risks when attempting to outlast winter. Turtles hibernating under the mud with their hearts beating only once every few minutes are totally vulnerable if they did not dig deep enough. They will be eaten if found because they will not wake up. A third winter survivor strategy is ‘outplaying’ winter. Dress for winter, remain active and ‘play’ all winter despite the harsh conditions. Birds increase feathers and down layers, lose bright colours, eat more and spend nights in torpor, with lowered metabolic rates and body temperature. They keep their feet warm with extra feathers, and a heat-exchange blood circulation system. Some birds will tuck alternate legs up inside their feathers to keep them from freezing. “Who needs boots?” says Summers. Another game of the outplayers says Summers is “Cache and Seek”. Birds, mammals, squirrels will hide (cache) extra food to use in winter. Many birds cache food in the fall and find it later by smell and in some cases by their amazing memory. ‘Bird brains?’ Beavers live in their houses with food stored nearby and muskrats make and live in mounds of vegetation called ‘push-ups’. They also establish food caches and bundle together for warmth. Others, such as weasels continue to hunt. Some owls have lopsided ears which allow them to locate prey through triangulation of sound. As mentioned, a grey owl can locate prey under deep snow and plunge through to catch prey. Another strategy is ‘form an alliance’. Crows roost together. Flying squirrels must nest in groups together. Large ungulates will follow group paths through the deep snow. In cities birds flock to roost near warm buildings or chimneys. Which of these strategies is best? If there was an award for the best winter survivor amongst wildlife, which animal would it go to? At the conclusion of her presentation, Patty Summers, told us that for her, the star of ‘winter survivor wildlife’ is a bird, the golden crowned kinglet. This tiny bird does not enter torpor. It maintains a normal body temperature which is 3 C higher than other birds. This ultimate outplayer of winter also manages to find three times its weight in food daily, and may raise two broods per year – a marvel of activity!

Dunrobin bird count lowest in decades Derek Dunn derek.dunn@metroland.com

Lifestyle – The 33rd annual Dunrobin Christmas bird count didn’t set a record for the number of feathered friends on hand, but it was among the coldest and snowiest.

West Carleton’s Bruce Di Labio organizes the count every year. He said 40 species were spotted, 10 fewer than the 32-year average. “Overall it was very quiet; one of the lowest in decades,” Di Labio said from Newfoundland where he was conducting another bird watch ear-

lier this month. “The forest birds were affected by the cold and snow this year.” On the up side, participants spotted four snowy owls which indicates a healthy small rodent population. From Arnprior to Pakenham, many birdwatchers are reporting various

types of owls this winter. Although the numbers are down, Di Labio maintains that it represents “a true winter count” that mirrors Canada’s cold winters. Global warming has led to more birds coming north over the last 30 years or so.

Among those not seen often are the winter finches; a poor cone crop this year many have played a role, he said. In Newfoundland, birdwatchers were excited to see 36 Tufted ducks, a species of Eurasian duck.

Carleton Place birders record high number of species Iain Wilkes

Community - On Dec. 27 birders took part in the Audubon Society’s 114th Christmas Bird Count (CBC), supported in Canada by Bird Studies Canada. The local Carleton Place Christmas Bird Count is one of two local counts (including the Lanark Highlands CBC) organized by the Mississippi Valley Field Naturalists each year as part of their ongoing conservation efforts. The Audubon CBC is comprised of over 2,300 defined areas across North America where, each year, thousands of citizen scientists volunteer their time to record every bird seen or heard within a defined area on a specific day between Dec.16 and Jan. 5. The center of the bridge over the Mississippi River in Carleton Place defines the center of a 12 km radius circle within which all species and individuals are recorded for the Carleton Place count. The resulting data from the 2300plus circles are provided to Audubon

A Goldfinch Christmas Wreath seems to be waving from its feeder perch. for research into changing species populations and locations. This data is an essential element for conservation plans and habitat protection across our continent.

This year 28 volunteers took to the field, combined with 25 observers at feeders, to conduct the annual Carleton Place CBC. Over 5,200 individual birds were recorded during

a day that was cloudy with sunny breaks. This was close to the average number of birds seen during the Carleton Place CBC since it began in 1951. There were 44 species of birds

recorded, and while this is not a record it is one of the higher species counts for this area. Highlights for this year were the multiple sightings of Snowy Owls which are appearing in eastern Canada and northeastern USA in large number this year. As well 371 Turkeys, 445 Blue Jays, 10 Red-tailed Hawks, 26 Robins and 1 Brown-headed Cowbird were sighted. Notably absent were Bohemian Waxwings, Evening Grosbeaks and Crossbills, which when combined with very low numbers of Redpolls, Pine Siskins and Pine Grosbeaks resulted in a lower overall count than would be expected. The count organizer and compiler for the Carleton Place count was myself. Many thanks go to all of the volunteers who make this important conservation effort successful, and to members of the MVFN social committee who organized food and refreshments in the community room for the end of the day when the tired field volunteers arrived back from touring to have their data recorded and trade stories of their day.

Enjoy winter safely and avoid injuries by following a few tips

• Have them skate in the same direction as everyone else on the ice. Kids who are slower skaters should stick to the sides of the rink, and you should skate with them. • Make sure that young learners have access to proper support by holding your hand or the railing around the rink. If you are skating with children on a frozen lake, river or pond: • inspect the ice before your children start R0012520193_0123 0193 0123

ing and tobogganing. Keep safety top-of-mind during these activities because children can be seriously injured if they crash and hit their heads, run into an object or another person, or fall through ice into open water. Avoid the chance of injury by: • checking equipment each season to make sure it still fits and is in good condition; • using a neck warmer instead of a scarf, and removing drawstrings and cords from clothing to prevent these items from getting caught or tangled on objects and strangling your child. Keep children safe when ice skating. • Make sure they always wear a helmet, as the slick ice makes it easy to slip and fall.

Yakabuski, MPP for Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke, also doubled as the national anthem singer. DEREK DUNN/ METROLAND

Sports â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The former captain of the national sledge hockey team helped start a year-long celebration of support and services for Renfrew County individuals with developmental disabilities. Todd Nicholson of West Carleton, Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s flag bearer at the 2006 Paralympic Games, joined town firefighters, community living clients, and others at the Ma-TeWay rink last Sunday afternoon for a friendly sledge hockey game.

Organizer Jennifer Creeden said the game gave participants and those in the crowd a chance to see sledge hockey up close. It also served as the first of many events this year celebrating Community Living Renfrew County Southâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 50th anniversary. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s partly to celebrate our 50 years, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also for community members to come and try it and see how it works,â&#x20AC;? said Creeden, executive director. In the lobby a display board showed snapshots from the organizationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s historic moments, along

with T-shirts for sale, a raffle for two chances to will a $2,500 travel voucher to New York, donation box, 50/50 sale and more. Just over $500 was raised on Jan. 19. The raffle draw takes place May 23 during a gala night of celebration. Tickets are available at the Renfrew office, 326 Raglan St., and at www. clrcs.com, until that night. Everyone is welcome to the dance at the Renfrew Armouries with live music by Ambush along with a silent auction and an open house showcasing all programs and services.

Renfrew-NipissingPembroke MPP John Yakabuski dropped the ceremonial puck and sang the national anthem before the game started. He said it was a great opportunity for those that have never played before, and a fine beginning to the celebrations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a great kickoff of the 50th year. I hope people enjoy the effort put out from playing it and that the firefighters participating can gain an appreciation,â&#x20AC;? Yakabuski said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m also honoured to be asked to sing O Canada today.â&#x20AC;?

Team Michaud from Huntley captures junior regions Sports - Team Michaud won the A-side at Junior Regions (Region 1) in Kingston. The team, who also plays in the Tubman draw at Huntley on Monday evenings, advanced to Junior Provincials Jan. 2 to 6 in Gananoque. Congratulations to the team of Peter Stranberg, Decebal Michaud, Matt Allan, Pascal Michaud and Coach Bert Michaud. The A-side final was a nail-biter against Team Camm featuring two of last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s junior provincial champions. After Team Michaud stole one in the eighth end to tie the 10-end game at 4-4, Team Camm blanked the ninth to retain hammer in the tenth end. Then it all came down to the tenth end on ice that was starting to break down adding an uncomfortable element of uncertainty to the game. Without last rock, Team Michaud had

shot rock in the back four foot behind several guards. After several double peel attempts to open it up, it was time for Jason Camm to draw into the top button on his first rock. On a very tricky path that had seen many picks throughout the game, Jason Camm made a great come around to be shot rock but it was a bit deep on the back button leaving an opening for Pascalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s last shot. Team Michaud then came around while just avoiding a rock in the top eight foot and tapped shot rock back a foot to then sit shot just in front of the button by a few inches with Team Cammâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second shot rock as backing. Team Camm had a tough peel PHOTO COURTESY OF HUNTLEY CURLING ASSOCIATION weight pick as the only shot they could play and their last rock failed to curl enough to Team Michaud, who includes Peter Stranberg, Decebal Michaud, Matt Allan, Pascal Michaud and coach Bert Michaud were due to play in the junior provincial finals earlier this month. make contact.

Area Olympic skier trains hard to reach podium, and another goal Sports - Canadian crosscountry skier Perianne Jones is used to training and competing in frigid, snowy weather and the 22nd Olympic Winter Games in Sochi will be no different. But while skiing in her second Olympics the pride of Almonte will also have many fans in tropical Nicaragua. That’s because the petite powerhouse is competing in Sochi not only for a spot on the podium but also to help some of the world’s poorest children get an education. She’s hoping people on ski hills across Canada will help her on that mission. Perianne will wear the SchoolBOX insignia on her Olympic jersey and soon af-

ter the Sochi Games she and some of her Canadian teammates, technicians and supporters will travel to southwest Nicaragua with the international charity SchoolBOX, where they will help build a school in an impoverished community. More than half the children in Nicaragua do not finish primary school. “I learned about SchoolBOX because I went to high school with the executive director, Sarah Kerr, but I became passionate about it when I saw how much it does to improve the lives of children in Central America and their communities,” Jones said. “By providing basic school supplies – pencils and note-

books -- and a place for some of the world’s poorest children to go to school, we can help them break the cycle of devastating poverty. “It’s almost heartbreaking that so little can change so much for these kids.” Jones has become a committed advocate for SchoolBOX, creating the campaign called “Ski 4 SchoolBOX.” She has challenged crosscountry ski clubs across Canada to get involved and “Make Education Possible” in places where it has not been. The top three fundraising clubs will each receive an autographed World Cup race bib from Perianne Jones. Some suggested fund-raising activities include: • Host a Ski 4 SchoolBOX Olympic Fundraiser Party to watch and cheer on Perianne as she competes in Sochi • 20km fun Ski 4 SchoolBOX event: Registration fees for the event can be donated, and pledge forms can be used by skiers to raise funds for the Ski 4 SchoolBOX campaign • Information night / motivational presentation; show 20-minute SchoolBOX documentary, and receive a per-

sonal video message from Perianne • Optional donation when Skiers register for the season with your Ski Club and keep donation tin in Clubhouse to collect donations • Equator Coffee Roasters from Almonte can provide coffee / hot chocolate to raise funds for Ski 4 SchoolBOX at your event • Fundraise to send some of your local skiers to Nicaragua with Perianne Jones in April 2014 (spots are limited so please contact volunteer@ schoolbox.ca as soon as possible). Full details can be found at www.schoolbox.ca/ski. ABOUT SCHOOLBOX SchoolBOX is a registered Canadian charity that helps over 15,000 children get primary education in Central America.

Kanata rebrands Jr. A squad: Stallions zapped by Lasers

In flight Reziah Dartey of West Carleton Secondary School loses balance as he tries to complete a pass during a junior boys basketball game versus Longfields-Davidson Heights on Jan. 17. Longfields won the game 79-48, as West Carleton fell to 0-3 on the season.

NEVIL HUNT/ METROLAND

ey League championship twice in the past decade (2010 and 2013), the only team to accomplish that feat. “His results speak for themselves. I think we’re very fortunate to bring a guy like that on board,” said Greer. Corey Foster will remain the Lasers’ head coach but other changes will be coming down the line, said Greer, although he wouldn’t comment about what they might be. “In the big picture, we’ve got to turn this team around,” he said. “I’m impressed with the team. We have a lot of the right players,” he added. “We want this to be a place that kids want to come to start off their careers; where they can continue their careers at a higher level whether it be in schooling or in the OHL or wherever they end up.” Lasers forward Derian Plouffe, 18, will attend Niagara University in the United States on a full scholarship this year. He was also named to the Canada East roster for the 2013 World Junior A Challenge and the CCHL roster for the 2013 Central Canada Cup All-Star Challenge. “We’re going to be losing one of the best players in the league, which is what this is all about,” said Greer. “This is all about the kids.”

Sports - The Kanata Lasers hockey team has gone back to its original name under new ownership. Cory Greer and Nick Urbisci purchased the former Kanata Stallions junior A hockey team from John Russo, which came into effect on Jan. 3. Greer, who holds 75 per cent of the ownership shares, said he hopes the name change will help the Central Canada Hockey League team as it rebuilds. “Bringing the Kanata Lasers back, they were a successful team; never missed the playoffs. They won the Art Bogart and Fred Page cups,” said Greer, president of the franchise. “It just made sense.” The Kanata Valley Lasers were founded in 1987 and held the name until 2002, when they were sold from the Kanata Sport Club to Dynasty Flooring Inc. The new ownership moved the team from the Jack Charron Arena to the Kanata Recreation Complex and changed the name to the Kanata Stallions. Greer said the Lasers still have a shot at the playoffs but the focus will be on creating a stronger team. “We’re really rebuilding right now. We’ve committed to picking up the speed on that, making it happen,” he said. Greer, who played junior B with the Arnprior Packers, has been coaching minor hockey for 17 years. His wife, Kim, is president of the Renfrew Minor Hockey Association. They live in Renfrew with their three boys, who all play minor hockey. “I love the hockey,” said Greer. “I enjoy working with kids. I really enjoy going out and watching hockey. This (purchase) was a good opportunity to be involved.” Greer filled in the players on the upcoming changes just before the holidays. “We had a team get together; filled them in on what the plans are and they seemed to be very excited about it,” he said. “Our plan is to have a brand new start to the franchise, bring it back to one of the most successful and respected franchises in the CCHL.” Lou Nistico, general manager of the Lasers, said he thinks the name change was a good call. “I think it’s great going back to the old name; there’s a lot of history there,” he said. “I think it’s important to go back to the roots.” The team will continue playing in their Stallions’ jerseys until they can be replaced – the start of the next season at the latest – and the Lasers logo is being redesigned, said Greer.

News - A group of seniors are preparing the finishing touches to ring in the Chinese New Year in February. After 2013â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s event was such a hit with hundreds of people attending the full-day affair, the Kanata Chinese Seniors Support Centre is looking to replicate the success for the Feb. 2 event. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone can come and enjoy,â&#x20AC;? said Wen Jean Ho, founder of the support centre. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be very exciting. The venue is a lot bigger than last year.â&#x20AC;? This year, the group has rented three rooms (the gymnasium, the youth room and a multi-purpose room) at the newly opened Richcraft Recreation Complex Kanata. The theme of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s event is Chinese inventions and will focus on four main innovations: paper, print, firecrackers and the compass. The celebration will also feature a number of traditional music and dance performances, Chinese crafts and art, cultural displays, food and more to welcome the Year of the Horse, which represents compassion, said Ho. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The optimistic nature of 2014 allows us to cope with financial hardships in the belief that good fortune will soon be on its way. The Year of the Horse is kind-hearted in nature promising to provide us with supportive friends, ready to help us. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The horse is a very good year.â&#x20AC;? The 2014 Chinese New Year celebration will take place on Feb. 2, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Richcraft Recreation Complex, located at 4101 Innovation Dr. Admission is $5 a person and children ages 10 and under are free. The Chinese New Year kicks off on Jan. 31, and lasts for 15 days.

Pennies build ‘Penny Time’ room at Seniors at Home office Liz Wall Seniors at Home

Community - Last year Arnprior-BraesideMcNab Seniors at Home (ABMSH) ran a very successful collection of pennies all under the title of ‘Penny Time’. Thanks to that fundraiser, the meeting room at Seniors at Home is now officially ‘The Penny Time Meeting Room’ and some of those pennies donated will be forever on display reflecting both the generosity of the community and the life of the lady it was named for. ‘The Penny Time Meeting Room’ is in honour of a loyal member of the team, Penny Ellen Lamendeau, who passed away on April 27, 2012. For 10-plus years, Penny was both a staff driver and volunteer for the agency. She was not just an employee but a respected and loved member of this agency’s family, a family made up of staff and volunteers dedicated to the betterment of all seniors. The respect and love Penny Lamendeau earned throughout her young life was never more evident than the day of her funeral when St. John Chrysostom Church was filled to capacity with family, friends and acquaintances that were touched by her story throughout the years. Seniors at Home thanks each and every person who donated their pennies. Whether a few or a hundred, all were appreciated. Please know that it was most appreciated and your generosity has assisted in the dedication of ‘The Penny Time’ meeting room. The meeting room is now decorated with

artwork that gives the room a bright and cheerful décor and one that reflects, not just Penny’s life, but that of many who have donated their time over the years to all programs offered by ABMSH. This past year Penny’s family was invited to participate in the dedication and were greeted by many including members of the Arnprior Breast Cancer group, the Prior Chest Nuts Dragon boat crew, and staff and volunteers of ABMSH. The main piece of artwork in the room reflects the meaning behind ‘Penny Time’. It was created by Phyllis Doherty-Hereford, a volunteer board member and chair of the development committee, and presented at the dedication. Thank you to all who participated in the dedication, including Penny’s mom Gloria Jordan; her husband John; her children Trevor and Michele Lamendeau and Michele’s friend Dwayne Barbosa; Penny’s siblings Lynn Wilson, Michael Jordan (Roxanne), Peter Jordan and Valerie DeWolf (Peter); and her sister-inlaw Mary Lynn Jordan. Thank you to Father Ryan for leading the dedication and to all attended and supported the event. It will be forever appreciated. ITALIAN NIGHT BUFFET

You’ll be providing financial assistance for essential equipment such as wheelchairs, walkers and ramps as well as vital communication devices. You’ll even help send a kid to a fully accessible Easter Seals camp designed for kids just like them. Reach out to help kids with physical disabilities live better lives. Give today!
