Inside Disaster averted as firefighters keep Kinburn COMMUNity Side Road shop fire away from fuel tanks By THERESA FRITZ

EMC News – Firefighters waged a defensive battle against a fire in a shop that contained biodiesel, in the hopes of keeping it from spreading to nearby fuel tanks Saturday night in West Carleton. And their efforts paid off. According to the Ottawa Fire Service, a 911 call by property owner Art Martin was received just before 6 p.m. Feb. 11. When fire crews arrived at 4011 Kinburn Side Rd., they found an 18 by 24 metre building fully involved with flames showing through the roof and through sides of the steel siding building. Firefighters quickly learned from the property owner the shop was being used to produce biodiesel, and contained chemicals and other hazardous products. According to Ottawa Fire Service public information officer Marc Messier, this inSee FIRE page 3

West Carleton Country Kitchen considering closing its doors By DEREK DUNN

EMC News – After almost four years and 34 sessions, the West Carleton Country Kitchen could see its doors close due to lack of volunteer participation. Usually run out of the Fitzroy Harbour Community Centre, the country kitchen reaches out to the vulnerable and needy in Ward 5, advising on how to prepare and eat healthy, affordable foods. Its second mandate is to promote ‘buy local’ strategies, meant to bolster rural businesses while reducing the carbon footprint. Gail Carroll is the lead volunteer. She said a government grant ran out two years ago, leaving the group of about 12 to 15 participants to contribute $6 each session, and rely on dona-

tions from area businesses such as Dunrobin Meats, Fitzroy Beef Farmers, and Panmure Farms, known for Hudson’s sweet corn and much more. However, tracking down and inviting guest speakers, lobbying for donations, organizing events, and more all require time and effort. Which is easier when more people take part. She said buying food from countries with laxed food regulations, such as Mexico and China, doesn’t make sense from a health, environmental or economic standpoint. But, that getting the message out while helping on the individual level is a growing challenge. See KITCHEN page 3


Saturday was a perfect day to get outside and enjoy winter activities. And one of the places to be in West Carleton was Carp for the annual Carp Snow Days. Here, William Hutchings (right) and Robyn Armstrong participate in the balloon carry during as part of the carnival games.

Fire was fought defensively due to possible hazards, says Ottawa Fire Service From front page

formation caused firefighters to retreat and battle the blaze from a safe distance for fear of explosion. The flames from the blaze could be seen from Highway 417 and lit up the night sky around Kinburn and Pakenham. “This fire was fought defensively as a result of possible hazards involved,” Messier stated. “Crews concentrated

on protecting other buildings on the property including the home which was 200 feet away.” The family home was untouched by fire and four, 5,000 litre fuel tanks that were next to the building on fire were saved. SHOP COLLAPSED Messier reported the shop building collapsed around 7:30 p.m. but continued to burn for some time. Also de-

stroyed in the fire were one vehicle and a trailer. Fire crews from Arnprior and Mississippi Mills were called in to assist by providing tankers to shuttle water to fire scene. The Ottawa Police Service closed Kinburn Side Road between Dominion Springs Farm and Highway 417 for several hours as crews battled the blaze. There were no injuries.

Firefighters did remain on scene most of the night extinguishing hot sports. Messier reported Monday that damage from the blaze is estimated at $375,000. As for Martin and his family, he told the West Carleton Review EMC they are “doing fine.” He recalled how he had just stepped outside to do something and “saw the first puff of smoke” coming from the shop

early Saturday evening. He praised the fire department for their quick response although he admitted it seems like a long time when one waits for the fire crews to arrive. Martin said he felt the fire was “somewhat sensationalized” in some media reports. “The house was never in any danger. It (fire) wasn’t at the house. They (firefighters) told us (Martin, his wife and children),” he said. “The wind

was blowing in the right direction.” The task at hand for Martin and his family is securing heat for the house as the heat source for the home was in the shop. That is his first priority. Whether or not the shop will be rebuilt is a topic for discussion for another day. “It’s not the house, it’s a building. We still have a roof over our heads,” Martin concluded.

Kitchen program is meant bring people together, offer nutritious food ideas From front page

“It’s a lot of work,” Carroll said. “I don’t know how long we can keep this going. It’s a real strain on volunteers.” Carleton-Mississippi Mills MPP Jack MacLaren said a volunteer organization that champions local business and healthy living should be supported. “I haven’t heard of this group, but it sounds like a great idea,” MacLaren said. “I’m a big proponent of volunteerism. More and more people are going to have to realize government can’t help them anymore.”

He didn’t offer to go after a grant for the group, but did encourage church groups and community associations get involved to help. “I understand volunteers can get burnt out,” he said. “This such a worthy thing people are doing. What a simple, great idea. I’m sure if word was to get out there, that they are looking for help, those groups would help out.” The West Carleton Country Kitchen isn’t simply looking for more volunteer help. It’s also having difficulty finding those who would benefit most. A number of people could be

helped, from children raised with little experience in eating nutritious foods to widows who find themselves cooking for the first time in their lives. Aside from the educational aspect, Carroll said the best reason to participate is the social side and helping to build the community. “It’s meant to bring people together,” she said. “It’s really a lot of fun.” Upcoming Country Kitchen sessions, which begin at 10 a.m. with lunch at noon, include: • Feb. 18 - Healthy Sweets: Sweeteners and

Local Investors Make Big Money Investing in Real Estate Without Touching a Screwdriver NICK KARADZA Real Estate Author and broker A real estate brokerage has been helping investors profit from investing in nice homes by offering a free real estate report entitled, “How to Make $112,284 Each & Every Year Investing in Real Estate without Touching a Screwdriver” According to Sharon, who purchased three investment properties with-in two months after receiving the report: “It’s my opinion, that anyone who is interested in investing in real estate should request a copy of this report. This report provides beginners or experienced investors information on a system that will help them succeed in investing in real estate.” In this report, you actually get to see local investors who used this system to change their lives. One of those investors is a couple named Paul and Maja. According to the couple, “We started investing in properties using the strategy outlined in this free report in the fall of 2011. We accumulated 2 homes in less than

four weeks that combined are paying us just under $1,100 of cash flow each and every month. Plus we have locked in more than $112,557 of profit’’. 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. Paul and Maja liked this approach because it didn’t require them to have the financial risk of having to pay the mortgage, taxes and insurance costs for a property during a rehab project. The approach seems to be working because they are planning to leave their high paying jobs!

Reflections of a war hero

From labour camps and battle injuries, to laughter and dance, a polish major details a life well-lived By DEREK DUNN

and the rest of the Polish Second Corps. There he built camps for civilian Poles until the group was demobilized in 1949. “There is no reason for war,� Tarazewicz declared. He doesn’t wax nostalgic about his war years. Just the facts and horror.

EMC Lifestyle – Major Stanislaw Tarazewicz takes quiet pleasure in watching the trees sleep in the expansive front yard of his Dunrobin country-home. The tiny birds busily searching for food, even the pesky squirrels forever causing mischief; all life thriving in the winter stillness contribute to a small grin he has maintained for more than 90 years now. It is key to a long and fulfilling life, he says from the living room on a bright and crisp afternoon. To smile, to appreciate beauty in all its forms, to trust in one’s God: these are some of the principles that can see a man through repeated arrests, labour camps, multiple war injuries, and finding buddies dead in the field. Tarazewicz’s life all those years ago, in far away countries, fighting the Nazi terror, was different in many external ways. But at heart the teenage boy and old man are the same in many more. “I talk with a smile, you see? Always. I don’t worry about things,� said Tarazewicz. “But I have a heart. I have a soul. I am very touchy about some things.� One of those things is fighting for the honour of his country, which he did as a teenage boy in 1939, when he joined the Polish forces in time to see his part of Poland fall to the Soviets. He was arrested, spent 10 months in a Lithuanian internment camp, and then escaped back to Wilno, Poland to join the Polish underground army – which became the largest and most effective underground resistance movement in Europe. The next year or two he managed to escape capture, but eventually was spotted on the Street by the Soviet secret police and arrested again. He was deported to a labour camp deep in Russia. He learned from a newspaper clipping that



Life is usually serene at Stanislaw and Teresa Tarazewicz home in Dunrobin, when not busy entertaining. But life didn’t start out that way for the polish couple, who endured some of the worst agonies of the Second World War only to emerge and capitalize on opportunities the west had to offer. a deal was inked to free the prisoners. “It was only on paper. We had to escape.� He made it back to enlist in the Polish Army. He was only 19, so was forced to lie about his age. The army was eventually evacuated from the USSR – Stalin’s paradise, or the “inhumane land� as Poles called it – to Iraq. Intense military training in Iraq and Palestine (now Israel), Lebanon and Egypt, prepared him for the battle ahead in Italy. In the historic battle of Monte Cassino, Tarazewicz displayed exceptional courage and dedication, and was awarded his country’s highest honour: the Silver Cross of the Virtuti Militari Class V. It was there, after clearing the mines, that he

was wounded three times on the first day. “I was badly traumatized by the death of my closest friend, Mundek Kluczynski, who as killed on the eleventh of May, at the beginning of the battle,� Tarazewicz said in his memoir. “He was shot through the head, and I found him the next day, as if he was sitting by a big boulder. I was terribly shocked and saddened and felt a bitter taste of the end that was awaiting us.� On day two his Jeep was ripped apart by a land mine. Lying face down in the huge crater, he realized all limbs were attached but none were moving. Moments later he regained feeling and tended to the wounded driver and his lieutenant. And yet he found moments of humour on the battlefield, a testament to humanity’s ability to endure. An enemy mortar that hit a cesspool managed to spray the unpleasant content in every direction. “It stank so badly that it was more unpleasant than the German mortars,� according to the memoir. By the end of the war it was clear that Tarazewicz was a national hero. But it was off to Great Britain, not a communist nation, for him

Civilian life suited him. He enjoyed seven years in Manchester as a draftsman, becoming lead dancer in the Polish National Dance Troupe, captain of the Polish Volleyball Team and by enjoying the freedom of youth denied him up to that point. He met a beautiful Polish girl during those years, Teresa Oczepko, 10 years his junior, but neither appeared ready to settle. “Everybody knew him. But he was an old man, so who cares,� said a laughing Teresa, a tall and elegant woman in her early 80s today. For the most part she sat quietly with perfect posture, languidly smoking a cigarette, fondly recalling a story or two from there 30 years in Montreal. At one point she leaped to her feet and skipped from the room to retrieve a newspaper with her twenty-something photo on the front page, with a ravenous smile. Other times she would quietly steal into the kitchen and return with even more Polish sweets for all. But her childhood years were anything but glamorous. When her father was killed, mother and child were sent to Siberia. The trip back was by cattle train. Of the 15 kids on board only herself and another boy survived. “They just threw them out on the way. It was horrible,� she said, then found reason to smile with beautiful twinkling eyes at another postwar memory. She was separated from her month for about six months. They ended up in Nairobi, Kenya, living in a Polish settlement. In round huts with dirt floors, she called it “primitive� but somehow “a good life.� From there it was to Tehran, Persia, before a family member could get them to England. The couple married in 1955 after she insisted he participate as her equal in a wedding party. “He was a great man, a real gentleman.� See DUNROBIN Page 5

Two years later, in Montreal, their son Richard was born. They wanted a name that was both English and French, and that it was the same as some hockey heroes didn’t hurt either. He now lives in the Cayman Islands. Their son’s name says something about how the couple feels as immigrants. They are in favour of keeping one’s culture, but to assimilate is also important. That means learning a new language, working, paying taxes, and trying to take from the system as little as possible. Tarazewicz came to Canada on contract with the Shawinigan Water and Power Corporation, and then worked at the General Engineering Company where he specialized in the design and operation of paper-making machines. He also worked in the design of the La Fontaine tunnel, under the St. Lawrence River. It was a design unique in the world at that time. For the last nine years of his working career, he was at Canada Cement Lafarge. With great vigour he says there are two countries he would “fight” for: Canada and Poland. The couple retired to Dunrobin in 1987. Tarazewicz is past chairman of the Polish Combatant’s Association, Ottawa chapter. Teresa is less interested in the quiet life that her husband now enjoys, preferring to entertain like they did during their dazzling days in Montreal. But she is also fond and appreciative of their neighbours. “The neighbours I have are irreplaceable. They take Stan to Riverside (hospital). Cut the grass. They are so good to us.” “We have a beautiful life,” Tarazewicz said. “Even at my 90 years of age. I can look at the trees grow and get mad at the squirrels. It is a good life.”

Get out and fish license-free this Family Day weekend By EMMA JACKSON

EMC Events - If you’ve ever dreamed of reeling in a record fish, this is your chance. All Canadian residents are invited to grab a pole and start fishing during the annual license-free long weekend Feb. 18 to 20. Throughout the province’s Family Day weekend, Ontario’s Ministry of Natural Resources has waived the need for a fishing license to allow people to try fishing without having to drop a lot of cash on an Outdoors Card. The freebie weekend applies only to Canadian residents, and anglers must stick to the conservation limits outlined for their area. Alesha Caldwell with the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters administers the program, which encourages communities to host events to take advantage of the license-free weekend and teach residents about the sport. She said the weekend, along with a license-free week in July, is useful to get new anglers started. “In general to be able to get involved in a sport you need a kick starter like get-

ting a family member to take you out. So having licensefree opportunities reduces that barrier to get you out,” she said. Especially in the winter, fishing is a very accessible sport to get into, Caldwell said. “You’re not casting, you’re just fishing in a hole. So for ice fishing you just need a hook, rod and a line,” she said, laughing that sometimes a stick with a string and pieces of hot dog and catch more than her fancy equipment. Even a hut isn’t necessary, she said. “You don’t need a hut. They are available, you can go to your local bait and tackle shop to see if they rent them. But all you need is a bucket to sit on,” she said. Augers for drilling into the ice are also reasonably priced, she said, and are available for rent as well. Caldwell said newcomers to the sport should consider taking a more experienced angler with them onto the ice, to offer tips and guidance. However if someone wants to take advantage of the license-free weekend without a fisherman friend, Caldwell suggested talking to the locals to make sure the ice is

safe and perhaps recruiting someone to help drill the hole. “The ice should have four inches of good, clear ice” on top, she advised, noting that cloudy or white ice has air pockets and may be less stable. Gearing up the weekend, Caldwell has overseen the organization of countless fishing events across the province, including three in the Ottawa area. LOCAL AREA EVENTS On Saturday, Feb. 18 the Ottawa Region Walleye League will host its third annual Kids Ice Fishing Event on Constance Lake in Ottawa’s west end. From 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. kids can try their hand at ice fishing alongside experienced anglers. League members will drill holes and provide fishing equipment and bait if needed and lunch is included. In Renfrew, the Castleford 7th Annual Ice Fishing Derby will take place on the Ottawa River from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Feb. 18. The charity derby attracts hundreds of anglers young and old every year, and this year will raise money for Renfrew and Arn-

prior Community Living. In Ottawa proper, the Catholic Centre for Immigrants will host an ice fishing fundraiser on Monday, Feb. 20 for their annual Community Cup soccer tournament. For $10, residents can enjoy a hot lunch, hot chocolate and access to bait and rods. The group will also drill the fishing holes and provide a warm shack for the anglers. The group will meet on the Ottawa River between Masson-Angers, Quebec and Cumberland, Ontario east of Ottawa. Two buses will be available to take participants to the site, leaving from the centre’s headquarters on Argyle as well as Catherine Street. The group is asking for a $5 donation to take the bus. The ministry’s fishing zone 15 includes Renfrew and Arnprior, and extends to Pembroke and Petawawa. Zone 18 covers all of Ottawa and North Grenville, extending east to Hawkesbury and west to Belleville. Anglers must check the conservation limits and fishing rules for their zone in the ministry’s recreational fishing regulations guide before heading out. The guide is available online.

Light rail contract should pay off for taxpayers O

ttawa taxpayers are about to invest $2.1 billion in light rail. For all that cash, it would be nice to see benefits beyond rails and stations. City council cannot build in contract provisions that see the light-rail builders required to buy supplies locally and use local service providers because of the provincial Discriminatory Business Practice Act. Requiring local purchasing could benefit the local

economy, and in a cycle of spending, would provide spinoff benefits to the taxpayers footing the bill. The potential opportunities are staggering. While Ottawa may not be home to the steel mills needed to forge the actual rails, local companies could provide legal and financial services, supply electrical systems and install them, and pour the concrete for tunnels and overpasses. Each of those local companies would in turn

need to contract with local services and suppliers. And this is no fly-by-night project. The light-rail system will take years to build, meaning the jobs and investment would be around for a considerable period of time. While the province bars any contract provision that discriminates based on the “geographic location” of a business, the city is trying to get local companies linked up with the light-rail consortia.

The city took a first step in the right direction by organizing a trade show on Feb. 9 so local businesses could meet with the companies most likely to carry out construction. Coun. Steve Desroches said the city was acting as “matchmaker” between the sellers and buyers. With more than $2 billion on the line, a more formal process is needed if we don’t want most of the spending to

head out of town on a rail. If there are no contractual requirements to “buy local,” you can be sure the winning bidders will try and maximize their profits by buying the least expensive goods possible. That may mean companies from elsewhere in Canada, or internationally, will receive cheques while local businesses are left behind at the station, so to speak. If we can’t write a requirement into the contract, the

city can make its preferences clearly known to the winning bidders. No one is advocating “buy local” at any cost, but if an Ottawa-based supplier can come close – say within 10 per cent of the outsider’s price – then the rail contractors should play favourites and purchase the local goods or services. The city needs to sign, seal and deliver a contract that pays off for the winning bidders and pays off for taxpayers too.


Crisis? What crisis? CHARLES GORDON Funny Town


hat was an amazing photo in the paper, showing a long string of buses backed up on the Transitway, while police and OC Transpo people tried to sort out the mess after a crash of two buses during rush hour. You look at it and empathize immediately – with the people who were injured but also with the people on those other buses. Because you can picture yourself in there, waiting helplessly, wanting to get home. Or out in the cold, waiting for another bus while traffic piles up on Scott Street. Perhaps you can picture yourself angry, yelling at somebody to do something. The interesting thing is that people didn’t seem to be yelling at anybody. The passengers interviewed by local media were the opposite of angry. “It sucks but at the same time accidents are going to happen regardless so you just got to grin and bear it,” one guy told the Citizen, as he waited for another bus. “There’s not much to complain about,” said another. “It happens, right?” “Some people were getting a bit frustrated but most people were pretty calm about it,” a woman told CTV Ottawa. That calmness did not apply to the comments section of news websites, where many people used the occasion to vent spleen about OC Transpo. But they weren’t there when it happened – and they wouldn’t have been helpful if they were. What matters is that the people in the middle of the crisis seemed patient and accepting. Canadians are sometimes mocked for having these qualities – as contrasted to the more

assertive Americans – but they serve us well in times of stress. It’s true that orderliness, some say meekness, is not a characteristic that makes for exciting movies, but those people are the ones you want around you when things fall apart. I remember a brief power outage in June when the traffic lights went out at the corner of Carling and Woodroffe. That’s four lanes in either direction having to move through the intersection with no policeman in sight – at rush hour. In a different country, known more for its individualism, it would have been a festival of horn-honking, aggressive driving and crushed fenders. Here, it was a spontaneously orchestrated ballet of cars taking turns. No fenders were crushed. Now, afterwards, when the crisis had passed there might have been recriminations in letters to the editor, on websites and open-line radio, but when the situation demanded it, calmness was the order of the day. Those who were around during the Ice Storm of 1998 will remember that too. Once the crisis had passed and we knew we would survive and get our toasters working again, some people began to complain. Yet, when the crisis was on, we were patient, we worked together, co-operated, helped other people and generally acted like a real community. This is the enduring memory of that period and it is an accurate one. The bitching came later and we don’t think of that so much. It would be nice to think that a crisis always brings out the best in us. It’s probably more accurate to say that it brings out the best in some of us and something less than the best in others. You have only to look at the recent Italian cruise ship disaster to see vivid examples of both types of behaviour. On a more everyday level, think about what happens when a flight is cancelled. Some people get on with their lives as best they can. Other people yell at the person behind the counter. Those are the ones you don’t want behind you at Carling and Woodroffe.

Last Week’s poll summary

Should the city move to ban smoking on restaurant and bar patios?

Is the city’s police services board right to limit its search for a new chief to internal candidates only?

A) Yes. Smoking is a hazard to public health and the city would be right to take action.

B) No. This is a case of over-regulation of private businesses.

C) I think the city should charge businesses extra to buy a licence to set up outdoor smoking areas.

Teens for Jeans at WCSS seeks good denim as part of drive

EMC News – Local high school students are doing their part to help the less fortunate. West Carleton Secondary School (WCSS) students are running a Teens for Jeans drive. The aim of the drive is to provide jeans for homeless teens. Students in Canada and the United States are taking part in the initiative. New or gently-used jeans are being collected at the high school, located at 3088 Dunrobin Rd., until Feb. 20. Jeans will then be delivered to Aeropostale, which will tally and distribute them to local home-

less shelters. Heading up the WCSS campaign is Grade 12 student Mitch Simpson. DONATION EVENT “Teens for Jeans is a donation competition and fundraiser, hosted by Aeropostale, an apparel retailer and, a site dedicated to community involvement in youth,” he explained. “The goal is to raise the most pairs of jeans in our school out of any school in both Canada and the United States. There are prizes associated with first prize.”

Simpson noted jeans are also being collected outside of the school with posters put around the local community. He lives in the Morgan’s Grant area and has put up signs in his area seeking more jeans. “Every pair of jeans collected is distributed to charities across Canada and the United States, through Aeropostale,” Simpson. “The principal (Colin Anderson) of my school and many teachers support the campaign, and have allowed us to raise jeans in-school for the past week and a few days. So far, we have raised almost 300 pairs just from school students.”

West Carleton Review EMC - Thursday, February 16, 2012 9



Often snorers also have sleep apnea which causes being tired all day, high blood pressure, heart attacks, strokes, irregular heartbeats (per FDA website). Millions suffer needlessly and can stop their nightly ordeals.

To my surprise, after taking Bell Snoring & Sleep Apnea Relief #23 I really didn’t snore or gasp for air anymore. I sleep through the night and feel rested and refreshed in the morning. Mark Wilson, 40, Hudson, NH < Sleep apnea capsules worked first night! For last 15 years I had sleep apnea and my doctor made me buy a CPAP machine, which I could not use. Finally Bell #23 helped the first night and every night thereafter. Like a miracle. Unbelievable. Karen Braun, 67, Glace Bay, NS < For 20 years I was waking up frequently gasping for air. During the day I would start napping every time I would sit down, because I was tired. Since taking Bell #23 sleeping 6 hours is heaven. It made a substantial change in my life. Mary C. Myrick, 62, Jackson, MS <It is such a joy not having to use the CPAP machine. I have had sleep apnea for 10 years. Using Bell#23, my wife says there is no more snoring or stoppage of #23 breathing. It is such a joy to be able to roll to left or right with no hose or mask to deal with. Thank you Bell for a great relief. I suggest anyone with these problems to try it. You will be overjoyed with the results. Wayne Burse, 63, Beamsville, ON. < Lost my husband because of sleep apnea in 2011. I had sleep apnea, too. I was scared to go to bed and have an heart attack like my husband. After taking Bell #23 I can now sleep for 5-6 hours peacefully without gasping for air. A blessing. Suzie Weigel, 60, Chattanooga, TN No need to make claims. Bell relays 100% truthful user’s free speech. No money is paid for it. No questions asked guarantee.

Heartburn Reflux

The USDA now recommends to eat 50% alkaline food (vegetables, legumes, salads, fruit). Health professionals suggest 80% alkaline food. Unfortunately, North American people eat 95% acidic food (meat, noodles, rice, bread, pastries, sweets, junk food). If you cannot change your diet to USDA’s 50% or closer to 80% alkaline food, consider to supplement with a natural health product that helps to increase your pH alkaline level close to a healthy 7. Ask for Bell Acidic Stomach/Alkaline Balance #39. It’s inexpensive, has no side effects and may eliminate the need for anti-acid pills many people take. As a bonus, an alkaline balanced body prevents many illnesses. See guarantee printed on box. < Reflux gave me a sore throat and I could not sing in the church choir anymore. After taking Bell #39 I have no more reflux and rejoice in singing again. Helene Giroux, 65, Quebec, QC < Have family history of heartburn. For last 10 years I suffered a lot with acid reflux. I told all family members about #39 being all natural, giving quick relief and having no side effects. Michael Fasheh, 49, Port Ranch, CA < Very happy with acid reflux relief. Last 4 #39 years had increasing reflux despite taking anti-acid products. I am also trying to eat more alkaline food. Grzegorz Smirnow, 43, Mt. Prospect, IL < Suffered with reflux, choking and coughing. After starting Bell #39 I feel great. Amazed about the complete relief. Thanks from the bottom of my heart. Katarina Tusa, 63, North York, ON <Was sleeping sitting up to avoid reflux. I thought I had this health problem for life like my other family members. Bell #39 brought quick relief. Can sleep now normally, have more energy, feel great. Bell products are quite different. Virginia Grant, 67, Markham, ON Skeptics may call anybody. All real people with honest statements.

name from their ability to incorporate the sounds of other birds into their songs. They sing phrases usually in repeats of three or more, making them easily vocally distinguishable from Brown Thrashers, their close relatives, which sing notes in pairs. Mockingbirds have been observed in Ontario since 1902 but the ďŹ rst nest was not discovered until 1960. They had been principally found in the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Banana Beltâ&#x20AC;? around the west end of Lake Ontario, but in recent years, they have begun a slow expansion northward. Perhaps global warming is behind this expansion, as is suspected to be behind the range expansion of other southerners such as Red-bellied Woodpeckers, Carolina

74 Daniel St. S. Arnprior 613-623-2860

This mockingbird was photographed by Michael Runtz. Wrens, and Black Vultures. Mockingbirds are also no longer being captured for the pet trade, another reason for their increase. In winter, Mockingbirds eat a variety of berries. Diane and Paul Petryk have observed their welcome guest dining on Yew and Juniper berries, as well as their suet. When I suggested she try feeding it raisins or fruit pieces, Diane provided some fresh raspberries, which were apparently received with great enthusiasm. However, her strawberries went ignored. Mockingbirds are notoriously aggressive in defending their territories and nests. Apparently, this one has claimed the Petryk property as its own,

for it aggressively keeps other birds at bay. In particular, it has taken a strong dislike to a Hairy Woodpecker, which it mercilessly drives away at every opportunity. Perhaps the woodpecker, which owns a lethal bill, is conjuring up ways to kill a Mockingbird! A reminder that the Innis Point Bird Observatory is having its annual fundraiser on Feb. 28, and I am the guest speaker. For a ďŹ ne meal and entertaining evening full of bird talk, why not join me!

EMC Lifestyle - One of the greatest pleasures I get from writing this column is hearing about your exciting encounters with nature. I enjoy all sightings, which range from white Ermine chasing Flying Squirrels up trees to majestic Bald Eagles soaring overhead. I also enjoy hearing about birds visiting your backyard feeders. Sometimes those include an oddly coloured bird, and other times, a puzzling stranger. Recently Diane Perky from the White Lake area called me about the latter. The bird was near the size of a Blue Jay, was gray above and white below, and sported a white patch on its partly black wing. Two birdsâ&#x20AC;&#x201C; a Gray Jay and a Northern Shrike â&#x20AC;&#x201C; crossed her mind but her visitor had a very different bill. It was longer and more slender. When I heard Dianeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s detailed description, I knew the bird could only be a Northern Mockingbird, a bird familiar to most visitors to the southern states. Mockingbirds, however, are quite rare in our area, usually being only encountered in spring or summer. They have nested locally at least twice and in the Ottawa area several times. Although occasionally found in Ottawa in winter, this is, as far as I know, the ďŹ rst winter record for the White Lakeâ&#x20AC;&#x201C; Pakenham-Arnprior area. Mockingbirds get their

Baby’s first day out was an experience


EMC Lifestyle - Ginger and her baby were making a right mess of the lambing area. We had already moved them twice—from the smaller to the bigger pen and then out into the open section of the barn—each time they completed the muckification of their living area. When no amount of coarse hay thrown down would better the situation it was time to move them again. Ginger made it obvious that it was time for her to receive an eviction notice when she heaved her chest onto the sheep feeder to reach the hay bale on the other side, busting the feeder to smithereens. We waited ‘til morning, when the sun rose on a clear, mild winter day. The Farmer opened the door to the barn and I tried to lure the calf out. No way. He had never been out before and wasn’t about to go now without a little coaxing. My husband wasn’t all that thrilled about going into the confined area with Ginger (who had recently tried to kill him) but it was the only way to get them out so in he went. Ginger quickly stepped out the door and her lamb was pretty quick to follow. Once outside, Ginger turned and looked back at the barn. I think she was realizing she had given up easy access to food and water. The calf stood blinking at the blinding sun. Then he took one step onto the ice and did a big Bambi slide onto his bum. For the next two hours, he wandered around the barn, poking in corners and skittering across the ice. I hooked up his milk bottle but he just sniffed at it. I think his nerves got the better of his appetite. Young Angus, our bull, wandered over to examine the bottle where I had hooked it to the side of the outdoor pen. He rubbed his skull against it, up and down, until it fell into a pile of muck on the ground. ‘Thanks, Angus,’ I said, picking the bottle up and rinsing it in a clean puddle of water. I moved the hook over to the other side of the pen. Angus slowly wandered around the half-wall and repeated his head-rubbing routine to knock the bottle down again. At this rate, the calf was never going

Accidental Farmwife to get his milk. I went back into the house and reported to the Farmer, who agreed that the calf would have to have access to his bottle or he just wouldn’t survive. Later that afternoon we cornered the calf, the Farmer lassoed him and we wrestled him back into the lambing room where he was born. I opened the door to the one remaining clean pen and gently shoved him in. He let out one long, plaintive wail when he realized his mother wasn’t with him. Ginger, who hadn’t been all that interested in her calf when she realized he wasn’t going to suckle, suddenly wanted to get into the lambing room with him. She pushed on the barred door and pawed at the ramp outside. She bellowed and wailed and stood staring me right in the eye when I went out to fill the water trough. ‘He doesn’t need you, Ginger. And you just make a mess,’ I told her. She went back to stand outside the door of the barn, confused. Her

mooing got a little softer. I could hear the calf in the barn, rustling around, but he didn’t return her call. Once happily ensconced in his own plush pen, the calf (whom I have been calling Baby), got back into this bottle-drinking routine. He only likes the milk when it’s warm, however, so you have to get him when he’s hungry. We also gave him some sweet hay, a bucket of water and a handful of sweet feed, to awaken his senses. He likes the water, and nibbles on the hay. When I go in to refill his bottle, he is lying in the corner, chewing his cud. ‘Oh look at you, all grown up, chewing your cud,’ I told him. He got up, did a big cat stretch and wandered over to the corner to drink his warm bottle of milk. We have about two more weeks of solid bottle feeding before he can start relying on hay and grain as his main food sources. I’m amazed he has lasted this long. And I’m getting way too attached to this animal.

Ottawa Police Service conducting a 2012 survey on policing services EMC News - The Ottawa Police Service (OPS) is seeking public input through the 2012 Public Survey on Policing Services. The survey will solicit residents’ perceptions on safety, crime, community priorities, and police performance.

EMC Lifestyle - Mother was a great one for routine. To her there was a purpose for everything, and everything had to be done in order. It seemed to me that I was always being taught a lesson to prepare me for the next step in life. And so it was, that at the supper table one night, Mother announced that I was old enough to wash out my underwear and stockings every night before I went to bed, just like my older sister Audrey had been doing for years.

out a pair of flower-bag underpants and a pair of long stockings. I assured her I was perfectly capable of doing it on my own. “Suit yourself,” she said, and turned back to Eaton’s catalogue at the kitchen table. The washing part was easy. It was wringing out the water that was a chore. But I got out as much of the water as I could, and took the pants and the stockings over to a chair by the stove. It was soon obvious that I was a long way from getting out the wash water, and they were soon making a pool on the kitchen floor. Mother ordered me to get some newspaper out of the wood box to catch the drip. Several times Audrey started to open her mouth to give me instructions, but Mother just shook her head and Audrey said nothing. When we climbed the stairs to go to bed, I took a last look at what I had accomplished without any help from my sister Audrey. By then the newspapers were saturated and the pants and stockings were still pouring out water. I sneaked my hand over to Audrey’s chair, and everything was almost dry. Oh, well, I thought, they will all be dry by morning. And I went to bed content that I had learned another lesson on growing up. The next morning I tore downstairs to retrieve my belongings. Audrey had long since claimed hers. Well, there were the stockings, still dripping wet, and the flour bag underwear as stiff as a piece of cardboard. “What happened?” I wailed. “Well” Mother said, “if you had listened to your sister and watched her, you would have seen that she rinsed everything twice. You didn’t, and the underwear is still full of soap. The stockings are wet because you wouldn’t let Audrey show you how to wring them out. So I guess you will have to wear them to school wet.” And she turned and went to the table to put out the porridge bowls. Mother did let me put on a pair of dry flour bag underpants, and a dry pair of stockings to wear to the Northcote School. But just as Mother hoped I would, I learned two valuable lessons that night. One was to take advice when it was handed out and when I didn’t know what I was doing, and the other lesson was that any young lady worth her salt washed out her underwear and stockings every night before she went to bed.

Hand health high priority at Raspberry Jam puts a new ADMH/Grove Nursing Home twist on homemade buns By SHERRY HAAIMA

ers. “When hands are visibly soiled, use soap and water,” says Cunningham. “All other times use alcohol-based hand sanitizers.” Sanitizers should be 60-90 per cent alcohol, she said. It’s also important to ensure hands are properly moisturized to prevent cracking. As skin is the body’s defense against infection, those with cuts or broken skin on their hands are more susceptible to picking up a virus or infection. “The skin is our barrier,” says Cunningham. Another common misconception regards the use of an-

tibacterial hand soap, which should be only used once a week or less frequently. These strip the natural, needed bacteria, making the skin more vulnerable, says Cunningham. Topping up a container of liquid soap is another no-no. “Bugs love a warm, moist enviroment,” says Cunningham. The Ministry of Health and Long Term Care developed a Just Clean Your Hands program to help hospitals, longterm care, retirement homes and individuals overcome barriers to proper hand hygiene and improve compliance with hand hygiene best practices.


bowl rather than a food processor, combine the dry ingredients in the bowl. Add the oil and buttermilk, and stir until blended. Turn out on a lightly floured surface, and knead 10 to 12 times. After kneading the dough, shape it into a ball, then roll it out with a rolling pin on a lightly-floured surface to make a rectangle 15”x 10”. For the filling, spread the softened butter or margarine over the dough. Drop the raspberry jam in 3 mounds spaced equally down the long center line of the rectangle. Spread the jam to within 1/4” of the edges of the dough. Roll up the rectangle tightly, starting from the long side. Pinch the seam to seal. With a sharp knife, cut the roll into 10 slices, each about 1” wide. Arrange the slices, cut side up, in the prepared pan. You’ll be able to fit 7 or 8 around the edge of the pan without crowding them, leaving the last ones to go in the

center. Bake at 400F for 25 to 30 minutes,. If the tops start to brown before the time is up, cover loosely with a sheet of aluminum foil. When done, remove the pan from the oven. Set it on a cake rack, and let cool for 5 minutes. To transfer the rolls to a serving plate, start by placing a cake rack over the top of the pan. Using pot holders, hold the pan and rack together so they don’t shift. Flip everything over so the cake rack is on the bottom. With pot holders, lift the pan off the rolls. The buns will be upside down on the rack. Now, place a serving plate over the bottom of the buns. Hold the plate and cake rack so they don’t move, and flip everything over again. You’ll end up with an attractive circle of raspberryfilled rolls on the plate ready to serve.

JoAnne Conningham, infection promotion control and occupational health co-ordinator, is leading the charge to improve hand hygiene at Arnprior District Memorial Hospital and The Grove Nursing Home with use of some handy tools.

Food ‘n Stuff


EMC News - It’s all hands on deck at Arnprior and District Memorial Hospital and the Grove Nursing Home when it comes to hand hygiene. JoAnne Cunningham, infection promotion control and occupational health co-ordinator, is leading a drive to promote patient and staff safety through better hand hygiene. Cunningham has been at ADMH since September but has been working in infection control for eight years, getting started in the field just as the SARS epidemic was underway. She says officials have found that proper hand hygiene is one of the most important ways to reduce the spread of infection within the hospital and beyond. “Clean hands are important to protect patients, staff, visitors and others,” said Cunningham. The goal is to decrease health care-associated infections and transmission of infections. “Health care associated infections are a real and growing safety issue,” said Cunningham. “In Canada, one of every nine patients admitted to hospital each year will obtain an infection and more than 8,000 patients will die from those infections.” The organization’s volunteers are playing a big role in the education process, greeting visitors and family members coming through Entrance B and in addition to helping with parking and providing directions, they will be recommending hand washing for those entering and exiting the hospital. Education for the volunteers, staff and others in the hospital and Grove is ongoing. The training is often being facilitated with the use of Cunningham’s glow germ kit, a device that points out germs left on a person’s hands even after washing, with the use of a small black box, bottle of solution and a blacklight. “People are usually pretty shocked when they see what’s left on there,” she said. Education sessions also point out the difference between washing with soap and water and using hand sanitiz-

EMC Lifestyle - These baked rolls are similar to cinnamon buns, but they’re made with raspberry jam instead of the usual sugar filling. They’re delicious, and very easy and quick to prepare, particularly if you mix the dough in a food processor.

To make the dough in a food processor, measure the dry ingredients into the processor bowl. Process for 5 seconds to mix the ingredients evenly throughout the flour Add the oil and buttermilk, and process until the mixture forms a ball. This will take less than a minute. Turn the dough out on a lightly floured surface, and knead 4 times. Part of the kneading has already been done by the mixing action of the processor. If you are using a mixing 379772-0216

Hoffman making impact in second season with B-Sens By Rob Brodie Mike Hoffman is eager to embrace the challenge. Fresh off playing a key role in the Binghamton Senators’ charge to a Calder Cup crown last season, the 22-year-old native of Kitchener, Ont., feels ready to assume a greater role in his second season with the Ottawa Senators’ primary affiliate. “We’ve got a young team,” said Hoffman, who blossomed into a Quebec Major Junior Hockey League star after going undrafted and unclaimed by any team in the Ontario Hockey League. “I think everyone’s got a little bit more (responsibility) on them, including myself. I want to be scoring more goals and getting more points to help the team win as much as I can.” Hoffman’s pedigree certainly suggests a guy built for offence. In his final two junior seasons, he racked up 98 goals and 179 points, helping the Drummondville Voltigeurs reach the Memorial Cup in 2008-09 before earning QMJHL most valuable player honours with the Saint John Sea Dogs the following season. In between those two campaigns, the Senators made the 5-11, 175-pound centre a fifth-round pick (130th overall) in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft. They’re hoping Hoffman turns into one of those late-round gems down the road, but some grooming down on the farm will come first. “(Hoffman) is a super skilled guy with top-end speed, and he’s wiry strong,” said Randy

Lee, the Senators’ director of hockey operations and player development. “He’s got a great one-time shot. He has to be an impact player every time he plays down there (in Binghamton) and he can do that. He can be a difference maker.” Life in the American Hockey League hasn’t always been rosy for Hoffman. He spent time during his rookie pro season with the Elmira Jackals of the East Coast Hockey League and started the Calder Cup playoffs as a healthy scratch. But by the end of the B-Sens’ title run, head coach Kurt Kleinendorst was calling Hoffman his most improved player over the course of the post-season. “This guy was a top guy, the MVP of the Quebec league, so for him it was an adjustment,” said Lee. “He was patient and he waited for his opportunity in the playoffs last year … he carved out a bigger role for himself. It was a good experience for him and he made a good contribution to the championship win.” Hoffman called the Calder Cup run “a good confidence builder for me.” Though his aim is to become a “complete twoway player,” Hoffman also knows what’s brought him to the point. “I’m going to have to be an

offensive player, someone who’s putting pucks in the net and putting up points as much as I can,” said Hoffman, the B-Sens’ second-leading scorer behind

Rob Klinkhammer. “I definitely want to play in the NHL someday. For now, I just want to get better every single day I go to the rink.”

WASHINGTON CAPITALS Wednesday, Feb. 22, 7 p.m., TSN The Capitals are in a huge dogfight with the Florida Panthers for Southeast Division supremacy – not to mention a Stanley Cup playoff berth. While Alex Ovechkin remains this team’s most dynamic offensive talent, he’s nowhere near the 60-goal scorer he once was a few years back. The Caps’ attack is also hurting with the loss of centre Nicklas Backstrom to a concussion over a month ago. That ramps up the pressure on

the likes of Alexander Semin and Brooks Laich to produce more goals. Dennis Wideman provides help in that area from the back end, along with John Carlson. In goal, Tomas Vokoun provides Washington with steady, dependable play.

BOSTON BRUINS Saturday, Feb. 25, 7 p.m., CBC Though their play has been somewhat average of late, the Stanley Cup champion Bruins are still a formidable force and a top candidate to repeat in June. This is a team loaded with offensive threats, led by the versatile Patrice Bergeron and the bruising Milan Lucic. Young phenom Tyler Seguin is having a breakout season in his second full season in Boston, while Chris Kelly is putting up career numbers and Brad Marchand

remains a perpetual pest who’s also a major impact player. Zdeno Chara is the big man in many ways on the Boston blue line. In Tim Thomas and Tuukka Rask, the Bruins boast arguably the best goaltending tandem in the NHL.

Ottawa moves towards being a ‘suicide safer’ city jennifer.mcintosh@metroland. com

EMC News - Parents with children in crisis will now have a road map to help them navigate the city’s mental health services thanks to a Suicide Safer Ottawa summit held at Ben Franklin Place in Nepean on Feb. 8. The summit brought together people from more than 40 service organizations to talk about supports that are already in place and what can be done to prevent future youth suicide. The talk, which took place on Bell Let’s Talk Day, which raised money for mental health issues, also resulted in a tool kit called Know What To Do, which provided tips and resources for parents whose children are in crisis. Dr. Ian Manion, the executive director of the Provincial Centre of Excellence for Child and Youth Mental Health at

CHEO, said prolonged negative moods and changes of behaviour are warning signs. Myron Khatheer, a 21year-old who started work with the Youth Services Bureau (YSB) after running away from home, said his work has helped him to see the signs. “Suicide awareness is a huge issue,” he said. “It happens a lot and there are always signals to spot.” Khatheer was part of a youth panel that talked to the crowd about letting young people drive the response system and tell service providers what they would like to see as youth mental health resources. Khatheer said his pride in working with others at the YSB helped him to overcome some of his own issues. “They gave me so many skills; things I didn’t even know I was capable of,” he said. They let me be myself in

a supportive environment.” Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley said the community support received since his son Jamie took his own life has helped his family members to get out of bed each morning. Hubley said finding help for Jamie – who suffered from depression – was a big thing for the family. “Now we have committed to the cause so that his life wouldn’t have ended in vain,” Hubley said, adding that he wants to prevent another family from the pain of losing a child to suicide. Nepean-Carleton MPP Lisa MacLeod and Ottawa Centre MPP Yasir Naqvi came together to organize the summit. Naqvi said he would like to see Ottawa build on the system that already exists, with support from the province. “This issue isn’t going away,” he said. “We need to move on it.”

Proposed new maple rules welcome: Fulton’s

City launches review of pool enclosure bylaw EMC News - The City of Ottawa is beginning a monthlong period of consultations with industry stakeholders, safety organizations, community associations and residents on proposals to revise and update Ottawa’s pool enclosure by-law. The pool enclosure by-law was enacted in 2001, primarily to protect small children from gaining access to private pools when unsupervised. The current by-law is focused on preventing children outside the property from gaining access to the pool area. Many of the new proposals are aimed at protecting children living within, or visiting the home. The key proposal is to introduce four-sided pool enclosures where there is a gated fence between the home and the pool. Currently, the dwelling can serve as one of the sides of the pool enclosure, allowing direct access to the pool from the home. Additional proposals will deal with temporary enclosures, technical issues such as fence and gate specifications and unique requirements for hot tubs and above-ground pools. This requirement will not affect existing pool enclosures.

“It’s transparency, that’s what we’re looking for, and clarification for our customers,” she said. A standardized grading system will help clear up consumer confusion, too, between syrup made in Ontario,

Quebec and Vermont, which are all using slightly different systems. The product’s state or country of origin is already required to be on the label and that won’t change. Transitioning to the new system will not happen overnight and will certainly have a “huge impact” on producers. “It’s going to take a lot of learning,” said Deugo. Government is hoping to start the process of introducing the changes next year, she said. Fulton’s is gearing up for the season with several upcoming activities planned, including March Break and Easter events.

EMC News- The news is sweet for maple syrup producers. Among those praising a Conservative senator’s motion to change maple syrup standards to make it harder for watered-down versions to be sold as pure are owners of Fulton’s Pancake House and Sugar Bush in the Pakenham area. “For one thing, it’s increased the profile of maple in general, which is always a good thing,” said Fulton’s owner Shirley Deugo, following Senator Nancy Green Raine’s tabling of a motion last week that would make it more difficult for table or blended syrup to be labelled ‘pure.’ “Maple has such a great reputation and such a great flavour that everyone wants to get on the bandwagon,” said Deugo. Raine has obviously been keeping abreast of issues faced by producers, said Deugo, as the standards are being discussed at various levels of associations in the maple industry. “I think what she’s doing is wonderful,” said Deugo. The new standards would help clear things up for customers, she added. “There is some confusion of our customers between pure maple syrup and table or blended syrup,” she explained.

“People look at the label and they see the word pure but don’t realize it’s only 10 per cent pure,” said Deugo. The proposed changes would create four classes of pure syrup, based on taste and colour. Deugo says the changes are also in keeping with the societal trend to be more aware of where food comes from, said Deugo.

Meeting his fans in the name of Kraft Hockeyville Photos by ROSANNE LAKE

Former Ottawa Senator Shean Donovan signed autographs alongside Carleton Place Canadians coach Jason Clarke (photo far left) on Sunday afternoon (Feb. 12) in Carleton Place at the local community arena. Donovan has ties to the town and was there with Canadians players for a public question and answer session. The event was part of the Carleton Place Hockeyville celebrations. Donovan, a resident of the Carp area, also signed autographs for eager young fans during a meet and greet with the NHL alumnus and the Carleton Place Canadians Feb. 12 (photo left) . Donovan once lived in Carleton Place and attended Carleton Place High School.

My View From Island View

Serendipity So I was giving some thought to serendipity. The dictionary describes serendipity as luck that takes the form of finding valuable or pleasant things that you are not looking for. Has it ever happened to you? Have you ever been searching for something, find something completely different and then realize that what you’ve discovered and found is more to your liking than what you thought you were looking for in the first place? Some people call this luck or good fortune. I don’t believe in luck but I do believe that good preparation and being open to opportunity when it presents itself leads to good fortune. When we are able to accept new ideas and expose ourselves to more experiences we create our own world which can be better than the one we imagined. Others say that this is “hogwash” and that our lives have a defined path where one event leads to the next and nothing happens by accident. Serendipity happens to me all the time. Most recently ice fishing opened up my world. The Teacher wanted to introduce me to this sport but he had no idea of how afraid I am of ice. Ice is very scary to me. Every year someone falls through the ice and every year I make a mental note to NEVER go on the ice. I am actually a big chicken. So when I did decide to go ice fishing, I

was expecting the adventure to be boring but the whole experience was actually quite pleasant. Except for my feet almost freezing off, I actually discovered I enjoy ice fishing and during the trip caught myself a Walleye. Unfortunately, I let one of the Teacher’s fish get away by accident. He was ok with my mistake but I did notice he pulled up the next two fish on his own! Some of the people that live and work at Island View shared with me some of the things in life that they found turned out to be better than they could ever have imagined. Things like motherhood and children excelling more than they could ever have dreamed of or spouses and marriages greatly exceeding expectations. These are the big things in life but even the smaller discoveries like Zumba dancing, baking and friends topped the list. Jean, our longest resident at Island View said being involved in golf and curling introduced her to a better quality of life than she ever imagined for herself. Examples of serendipitous discoveries are all around us. Take for instance the development of penicillin when Alexander Fleming discovered that the

staphylococci bacteria culture he had neglected to clean up before going on vacation would not grow around mold on a plate. The anti-malarial drug, Quinine, was accidentally discovered when a South American Indian suffering from malaria and desperately needing to quench his thirst, unknowingly drank it from a small pool of water. Insulin was discovered as a treatment for diabetes, accidentally, as the result of removing a dog’s pancreas to determine what role the pancreas played in the digestive system. Sir Isaac Newton’s theories on gravity were an accidental discovery after watching an apple fall. In the words of American physicist Joseph Henry, “The seeds of great discoveries are constantly floating around us, but they only take root in minds well prepared to receive them.”

They will include Danny Zuko, Sandy Olsen, Betty Rizzo, Kenickie, the TBirds and the Pink Ladies, to name a few. “We are so excited for the show this year, we are presenting Grease,” said skating club president Robin Gyi-

mesi. “We have 324 members at our club this year and will be expecting about 180 to participate in the show.” The ice show is being coordinated by Debra Barrett and she said all the hard work by skaters will pay off during the show. PERFORMANCES “The audience will enjoy performances from solos to group numbers demonstrating all levels of skaters at our Club.  Our skaters range in age from three to 17, beginning with our little Tiny Tots and Canskaters to our Starskate program with Special Juniors up to our more experienced senior skaters,” Barrett noted. “This is a show not to

miss.” The West Carleton Skating Club is committed to the development of skaters of all ages.  The club offers learn-toskate programs for children, teens, and even adults, and programs for more advanced skaters up to Gold Level testing, as well as a power skating program. The club is a fully sanctioned Skate Canada Club and operates as a not-for-profit, volunteer-based, community organization.

Local wrestlers shine at tournaments EMC Sports - Wrestlers from the Arnprior Wrestling Club and Arnprior District High School as well as wrestlers from Walter Zadow Public School travelled to Renfrew for the annual Rumble on Feb 11.  Arnprior club member Cole Nichols of Crown Point in just his second tournament came up against some strong, experienced wrestlers. Cole’s wrestling improved with each match and by the last bout he was limiting the points scored against him and was able to score points. John Dolan, a member of the high school team, lost his first match but won his second with strong two rounds of wrestling giving him a second-place finish. The Walter Zadow wrestlers have been practicing since the beginning of January to prepare for this tournament. Many of them have never wrestled before and for many of their parents it is the first time seeing Olympic style wrestling. For the Walter Zadow team, Hannah Frazer was one of three in her weight class. She wrestled hard in her two matches and finished in third place. Zach Cram had three matches and wrestled well but was unable to win the matches for his first time wrestling.  Reese Taylor won his first match in a weight class with five wrestlers.  He then had three more bouts but was unable to win these tough matches. Hugh Russel came out strong and won all three of his matches, giving him a firstplace finish. Brian Sheeler is also a member of the wrestling club and his experience showed as he won his matches, two by a pin, giving him a first-place finish. Coach Kevin Mayhew of Fitzroy was very happy with the way all the Walter Zadow wrestlers worked hard and showed great sportsmanship. 

Family Day fun planned for West Carleton Nordic Ski Club EMC Sports - No plans for Family Day? It’s is coming up on Monday, Feb. 20, why not enjoy some fresh air and fun with the West Carleton Nordic Ski Club?

For more information on this event, and the club itself, please see the website at The trails are located in the Fitzroy Provincial Park and are groomed for both classic and skate skiing.

He lost his first match to a wrestler from London, and then won his next two matches easily. At this point, Darren needed to win two more matches to continue to the next day and finish in the top six. This was not to be, as his next match was tough, with Darren winning the first round, losing the second and third rounds just by a couple of points. He did finish in the top 10 in this weight

City could be forced to expand urban boundary even farther Legal misinterpretation could result in the addition of 163 hectares of developable land By LAURA MUELLER

EMC news – A difference of opinion over an Ontario Municipal Board ruling could force the city to add another 163 hectares to the urban boundary. The city has already been ordered to add 850 hectares to the developable area on the city’s outskirts, and it has been locked in OMB hearings for a couple of years as developers appeal the process by trying to have more area added inside the boundary. On Feb. 8, a realization during the latest OMB hearing sent city lawyers scrambling.

The issue, said Stittsville Coun. Shad Qadri, is that the city’s lawyers and the OMB have different interpretations of the last ruling. The city’s lawyers thought the 850 hectares included 163 hectares of land between Stittsville and Kanata that the city already planned to allow to be developed. The problem is that the OMB member who made the ruling thought otherwise. Norman Jackson, an OMB member who was part of the decision that ordered the 850hectare expansion, assumed the Stittsville/Kanata lands would be added on top of the

163 hectares the city planned to include anyway. The revelation means the OMB could decide to require the city to expand the urban boundary by an extra 163 hectares, Qadri said. “I think everybody is surprised,” Qadri said. Qadri said the confusion wasn’t due to an error on either the city lawyer’s or the OMB members’ parts. “As our professionals that are here at city hall, I think they do their best to provide us with good information,” Qadri said. “In this particular case I think it could just be misinterpretation, not only from our

side but also from the (OMB) adjudicator’s side.” The current OMB hearing on the urban boundary is ongoing and expected to take another couple of weeks. When it’s over, the board will have ruled on a final interpretation of how much and where lands should be added to the urban boundary. “We had decided to have it in the urban area and had approved it at council,” said Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson. “I don’t know why the OMB didn’t take that view, because in fact what they’ve done is made it more than 850 hectares by their in-

terpretation.” The OMB would have full authority to decide how much and which lands to add. “It’s entirely in their hands,” Wilkinson said. “They could decide someplace totally different. They don’t have to use our list.” If the OMB does consult the list of parcels the city had rated for inclusion in the urban boundary, a section at the north end of March Road would be a likely choice to include, Wilkinson said. “It’s quite possible they’d pick something there, because it was a pretty high rating,” she said.

There is also a piece of land between Terry Fox and Huntmar drives that is high on the list, Wilkinson said. “There could possibly be some lands in my ward that could become part of the new urban boundary,” Qadri said. “It is unfortunate, but sometimes these things happen,” Wilkinson said. “My view of it is, there is not much I can do about it right now, so I’m not going to worry about it. I’ll just wait to see what they come out with as the decision and deal with it at that stage. That’s what’s going to be really important.”

Rein in parking during the Capital Ottawa 67’s moving to Kanata Hoedown say residents in venue area Hockey club to spend two seasons at Scotiabank By BLAIR EDWARDS

Place during Lansdowne construction period

EMC Events - Katimavik residents are looking for assurances the city will prevent parking overspill into their community during next summer’s Capital Hoedown Country Music Festival. “We’re being very careful to insist the bylaw enforcement people looking after parking, and the police, are attending to our concern that it not spill over to our side streets,” said Rod MacLean, president of the Katimavik-Hazeldean Community Association. “It’s just that there are some people who don’t really like the prospect of cars parking all over.” The country music festival will be held at Walter Baker Park, next to the Kanata Recreation Complex, from Aug. 10 to 12. Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley has arranged for a bylaw officer to speak to the community association about preparations for the Capital

He said the city will explain how a traffic management plan – now being prepared by Hoedown staff – will work at a future community association meeting.” “We’re going to let the experts come up with the plan first and we’ll see (if) that works.”

“I don’t think anyone wants to be a wet blanket,” said MacLean. “At the same time, I think everyone is entitled to the courtesy of being able to use his home as he or she sees fit.” The Katimavik-Hazeldean Community Association will next meet on March 5, starting at 7:30 p.m. at Katimavik Elementary School.

EMC Sports - The Ottawa 67’s are headed to Kanata. The Ontario Hockey League club has worked out a deal with the Ottawa Senators, allowing the 67’s to play two seasons at Scotiabank Place starting this fall, until construction is finished on the Ottawa Civic Centre. Construction on the Lansdowne Park redevelopment is expected to finish in 2014. The deal is contingent on the Lansdowne project, which includes a retrofit of the Civic Centre, clearing a legal challenge from the Lansdowne Park Conservancy, and approval from city council. Fans from the city’s east end will have to adjust to a longer commute. “Certainly this is going to be an extra burden to drive further than they’re used

to,” said Jeff Hunt, owner of the 67’s. “That was a major worry – the effect this move would have on fans.” But the only alternative to moving the hockey club was for fans to endure a “virtual war-zone of construction,” at the Civic Centre, Hunt said. “It’s certainly, I think, the best alternative we would have.” The hockey club, which attracts roughly 7,000 fans per game, has had great success playing home games at Scotiabank Place in the past, said Hunt. The 67’s will have to work their at-home schedule around the Senators road trips. NO CONFLICTS “There won’t be any scheduling conflicts because we quite literally can’t do that,” Hunt said. “The Sens travel a lot – if they’re down in California for a weekend of games, then we can play at home.”

The move could mean a few changes in the hockey operations side of the business as well, said Hunt – meaning some players may have to find new billets and transfer to high schools in Kanata. “We’ve got billet families who’ve been with us a long time, and we certainly want to maintain those great relationships.” Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson said she doesn’t anticipate the move creating traffic problems. “They have a smaller number of people then they do at a Sens game,” she said, adding that the audience is similar to the number of people attracted to a concert or other special event at Scotiabank Place. “I think (the move) makes a lot of sense with the construction going on in Lansdowne,” said Wilkinson. “It will mean we can get the construction done faster.”

LIBRA – Sept 23/Oct 23 Libra, start thinking about curbing your spending. Your finances are in trouble if you don’t make some changes. More is going out than is coming into your accounts.

TAURUS – Apr 21/May 21 Taurus, a good night is in store this week. The night brings rewards you did not expect. Working hard yields more than financial success.

SCORPIO – Oct 24/Nov 22 Scorpio, there’s not much you can do about the current situation. Complaining about things won’t solve anything, so why waste the breath? Better news is on the horizon.

GEMINI – May 22/Jun 21 Trust your instincts, Gemini. Someone who seems like they have your best interests at heart really may have ulterior motives. Heed Capricorn’s sage advice. CANCER – Jun 22/Jul 22 Cancer, you may feel like you’re the only one keeping the ship from sinking. However, this is not the case. Behindthe-scenes work is taking place, too. LEO – Jul 23/Aug 23 Leo, it seems as if drama is always following you. That’s because you tend to be the life of the party or prefer all eyes be on you. Think about being less conspicuous. VIRGO – Aug 24/Sept 22 Virgo, it’s hard to keep friends if you are overly critical of the way they live their lives. Remember, no one is perfect — including you. Keep an open mind.
