EMC News â€“ A 15-yearold boy died in hospital early Monday, after collapsing at a hockey game in Carp the night before. On Sunday (Feb. 5) evening around 6:20 p.m., Ottawa Police, Ottawa Fire and Ottawa Paramedics were called to the W. Erskine Johnson Arena in Carp where a 15-year-old male was unconscious. The Richmond teen, Tyler Kerr, was a member of the Richmond Midget B and had been playing hockey at the time of the incident. He is alleged to have come off the ice after his shift and collapsed on the playersâ€™ bench. According to Ottawa Police, a coach of the hockey team began administering CPR and the portable defibrillator was also used. Firefighters and paramedics responded to the 911 call and immediately attempted to resuscitate the youth. Police report the teen was transported to CHEO where he was in intensive care. However, at 3:15 a.m. Monday morning, police issued a short statement regarding the teenâ€™s condition. â€œIt is with sadness we report that the youth has been pronounced deceased,â€? the statement read. While Ottawa Police did not officially release Kerrâ€™s name, condolences poured into social media sites like Facebook from friends and schoolmates at Sacred Heart High School in Stittsville.

Taking the faceoff for their respective teams were Brent Carruthers (right) and Kyle Campbell.

Green bins now on Rideau Canal EMC News - The Rideau Canal Skateway now has green bins available for people to dispose of their organic waste. The bins will be located near the snack shacks and rest areas along the entire 8.8-kilometre skateway. Skaters can put food scraps, wooden popsicle sticks, napkins and paper cups into the green bins to reduce the amount of trash that goes to the landfill. PARTNERSHIP The initiative is a partnership between the City of Ottawa, which runs the green bin program, and the National Capital Commission,
which operates the Rideau Canal Skateway. “This initiative reflects the appreciation our community has for its natural environment and how it values our waste diversion efforts,” Mayor Jim Watson said in a statement. It’s the next step in creating partnerships to expand green-bin use, said River Coun. Maria McRae, who heads the city’s environment committee. The city has worked with schools, shelters and it’s own recreational facilities to ensure green bins are available throughout the city – not just in homes.

EMC Sports – It’s the time of year again to support local minor hockey and watch some exciting Ontario Hockey League (OHL) players in action. The annual West Carleton Day with the Ottawa 67’s takes place Sunday, Feb. 19 when the Ottawa 67’s face off against the Erie Otters at 2 p.m. The puck drops at 2 p.m. at the Ottawa Civic Centre. The 67’s are currently riding the top of the leader board in the east division while the Otters are in ﬁfth place in the midwest division. The annual event is once again being organized by Brett Hamilton, a resident of MacLaren’s Landing and an account manager with the Ottawa 67’s hockey club. A part of all tickets sales will go towards West Carleton Minor Hockey Association to help youngsters who cannot afford to play hockey or need equipment. Hamilton originally started the event because he wanted to give something back to his community and support minor hockey. And the West Carleton Minor Hockey Association

encouraging sportsman like behaviour with our lowest penalty minutes contest. We host a contest each year and the team with the lowest penalty minutes per level receives 20 tickets to the game,” Malloy noted. Winners this year include: Novice B2 head coach Todd Storms, Atom B3 head coach Daryl Doxsee, Peewee C head coach Paul Shouldice, Bantam B2 head coach Rob Graham and Midget B1 head coach Jeff Wall.

The couple stated that the homes they invested in were “in move” in condition so they didn’t have to spend their evenings and weekends ﬁxing up homes.

Serve your sweetheart the sweet herb on Valentine’s Day
EMC Lifestyle - If you’d like to make a special dinner for Valentine’s Day, serve this basil-flavoured chicken and seafood dish. Known as the sweet herb, basil is all too often combined with other stronger-tasting herbs. Using basil on its own, however, lets its natural sweet flavour come through. This dish is a colourful mixture of chicken, shrimp, mushrooms, onion and red pepper served in a basil-flavoured white sauce. It’s excellent spooned over pasta such as linguine. It takes about half an hour to prepare this meal. If you start cooking the pasta before
starting the sauce, everything should be cooked at the same time. You’ll need one large frying pan and one smaller one. Each ingredient is cooked separately in the large pan, then transferred to the second pan and kept warm. When you’re shopping for this recipe, look for the small frozen shrimp that are already cooked and peeled. They are nicer in this dish than the large shrimp. Look for fresh shredded Parmesan cheese in the deli section of the supermarket. I like it because it’s more convenient and moister than grating a large chunk of Parmesan

cheese. Valentine’s Day Special 2 tbsp. olive oil or vegetable oil 2 skinless, boneless chicken breasts, sliced in strips 225 gm package of white button mushrooms, sliced (about 12) 1/2 medium onion, sliced
in thin strips 1/2 sweet red bell pepper, cut into thin strips 1 1/2 cups milk 1 envelope chicken bouillon powder 2 tbsp. cornstarch 1 cup frozen small, cooked, peeled shrimp, thawed under cold water 1 tsp. dried basil
1/4 cup freshly-grated Parmesan cheese Once you have the chicken and vegetables sliced, start cooking the pasta. You won’t need a lot because the recipe for the sauce makes two large servings. Heat the oil in a large frying pan. Add the chicken strips, and brown them on each side. When there is no pink left in the chicken, transfer it to a smaller frying pan set on very low heat. Add the sliced mushrooms to the large pan, and cook them until lightly browned. Transfer them to the same pan as the chicken. Add the sliced onion and
sweet red pepper to the large pan, and cook until crisp-tender. Transfer them to the same pan as the chicken. In a measuring cup, stir the milk, chicken bouillon powder, cornstarch and basil together until the cornstarch is dissolved. Pour this into the large frying pan, and cook, stirring continuously, on medium heat, until slightly thickened. Spoon the cooked chicken and vegetables into the sauce. Add the shrimp, and cook for 2-3 minutes until the shrimp are heated through. This serves 2, but it can also serve four if you cook a larger amount of pasta.
