It's figure skating time at the W. Erskine Johnston Arena in Carp this coming Tuesday, Feb. 21. That's when the West Carleton Skating Club is presenting its annual Showcase event featuring skaters from its StarSkater program, ranging from junior and intermediate to senior. Skaters will be performing solo, dance and skills routines, much to the delight of all of the onlookers. In addition, members of the West Carleton Skating Club's Special Olympics Team will be performing at the event. Showcase will run from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Feb. 21. There is no admission fee as anyone interested can drop by and watch the skaters perform their group and solo numbers. And figure skating fans are reminded that the West Carleton Skating Club, along with the West Carleton Minor Hockey Association, will be hosting the Battle of the Blades competition on Saturday, March 25. This is just like the television program where a figure skater is matched up with a hockey player to perform together on the ice. West Carleton-March city councillor Eli El-Chantiry has agreed to be a judge at the event. Admission is a donation to the West Carleton Food Access Centre. John Curry/Metroland It's going to be an event not to be West Carleton Skating Club skaters who are preparing for the Club’s Showcase event on Feb. 21 at the W. missed! See WEST CARLETON, page 2

West Carleton Skating Club Continued from page 1
The West Carleton Skating Club is committed to the development of skaters of all ages, with programs from learn-toskate for youngsters to programs for more advanced skaters up to gold level testing. The West Carleton Skating Club is fully sanctioned by Skate Canada and operates as a not-for-profit volunteer-based community organization. Programs are held at the W. Erskine Johnston Arena in Carp. The West Carleton Skating Club teaches according to Skate Canada levels and guidelines. The PreCanSkate program is a beginner CanSkate program for youngsters aged 3 to 5. The session begins with a warm-up in the dressing room led by a coach who then leads the group out onto the ice. CanSkate is a national certified program offered by sanctioned Skate Canada clubs. It is a basic six-level, learn-to-skate program that serves as an introduction to all ice sports including figure skating and hockey. CanSkate lessons involve at least two professional coaches and are taught in a group format.
The coaches are supported by program assistants who are figure skaters from the club who have been trained by the coaches under Skate Canada guidelines. New skaters are assigned to a CanSkate level according to skating experience and age. Skaters progress through the sixbadge format on an individual basis. Progression is monitored and assessed continuously. CanSkate is the feeder program to the STARSkate and CanPower programs. STARSkate provides opportunities for skaters of all ages to develop fundamental figure skating skills in the areas of ice dance, skating skills, free skate and interpretive skating. Skaters have the opportunity to take Skate Canada tests through a nationally standardized testing system. The junior program is an introduction into STARSkate. Skaters who have passed CanSkate Level 4 or are otherwise recommended by a coach may move up to the Juniors program. Lessons are held in a group format with some independent skating required. The Intermediate program is for Juniors who are ready to
skate independently and who are recommended by a coach to move into this Intermediate level. Skaters are coached privately, semi-privately or in small groups. Senior skaters are those in the STARSkate program at the intermediate level and who have completed all junior bronze tests. Skaters are generally coached privately at this level. Coaches with the West Carleton Skating Club include Brent Carty, Lauryn Rochon-Kaiser, Cristy Gravelle, Patrick Hahn, Margie Hill-Carty, Janet HillTobali, Ben Tobali and Laura Shwetz. Members of the executive team of the West Carleton Skating Club are Claire Atherfold, president; Sherri Szabados, vicepresident; Debbie Heuchert, secretary; Melody Rochon, registrar; Marcel Stel, treasurer; Debra Barrett, test chair; and Cristy Gravelle, coaches liaison. The West Carleton Skating Club is a volunteer organization run by parents and assisted by the club’s senior skaters. The John Curry/Metroland club does some fundraising to West Carleton Skating Club skaters who will be participating in the Club’s Showcase help offset costs, keep fees down and ensure that programs can be event on Tuesday, Feb. 21 at the W.

CBBCA's Board of Directors all set to go for coming year BY JOHN CURRY firstname.lastname@example.org
The Board of Directors of the Constance and Buckham's Bay Community Association (CBBCA) is all set for 2017. A new board was elected at the CBBCA annual general meeting Feb. 12, with 21 of the possible 22 positions filled, all by acclamation. The new board will now have the option of filling the one remaining vacant position. Angela Bernhardt once again heads the CBBCA Board, having been re-elected as president. Ian Glen, who was the immediate past president, is returning to the board as vice-president. Donna Pritlove will be the treasurer for the coming year while Len Russell will continue as secretary.
Eight out of the ten board positions with a specific portfolio were filled as follows: bar Penny Johnson; canteen - Anita Kamps; membership - Cindy Pratt; property - Kevin Pratt; sports - Gayla Weatherall; youth - Awtar Koonar; adults 55+ - Andy Rapoch; and volunteers - Tracey Bloom. Two positions with specific portfolios, namely communications and social/events, were not filled but then one more director at large above the usual eight was elected, so the new board has at present 21 members. A total of 22 members is the maximum allowed under the CBBCA constitution. Elected as CBBCA directors at large were Ian Thurston, Virginia Blondin, Karen Shiller, Ivo Mokros, Linda Lachance, Jo-Ann Campbell, Graham Ginsberg, Bob Dupuis and Bob McGee.

Membership in the Constance and Buckham's Bay Community Association (CBBCA) grew in 2016. Reporting at the CBBCA annual general meeting Feb. 12, immediate past president for 2016 Ian Glen said membership grew by 191 members during the year and now stands at 656 members. This continued growth in membership over the past two years has seen CBBCA membership increase from 368 members to the current 656 members. The CBBCA Facebook group has grown in the past year and 2016 saw the CBBCA eletter distributed to 600 addresses ten times during the year. The Bayview newsletter was distributed to 1,820 addresses three times during the year. There has been a substantial increase in the utilization of the facilities at the expanded Constance and Buckham's Bay Community Centre, with 62,000 visits in 2016. It was noted that the number of programs offered at the community centre increased with the addition of ballroom dancing, Adults 55+ programming, Helen O'Grady Drama Academy program for youth, art classes and more. In addition, the Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre (WOCRC) opened its service centre at the facility, providing transportation, outreach and Meals on Wheels services along with organizing seminars. "As you see, lots going on," Ian Glen said with regard to the programming and activities now happening at the community centre. He also noted that in 2016, the CBBCA hired nine local youth to work at the community cen$988,000

tre, an expenditure of $16,600. Andy Rapoch, who is leading the seniors programming, reported how the CBBCA's Adults 55+ initiative and the WOCRC's effort to have a presence in the community both happened in 2016. CBBCA's Adults 55+ initiative began with a July open house seeking input about what residents in Constance and Buckham's Bay wanted in terms of seniors programming. A startup team was formed which coined the name Adults 55+, began a Facebook page, issued ecommunications and began regular afternoon activities at the Community Centre. Concurrently, WOCRC identified Constance Bay as a location for one of two mobile hubs in West Carleton, with the other being in Fitzroy Harbour. This WOCRC community service centre opened in November, with an associated pharmacy opening in December. It's been "quite a year on the health front, notably for seniors in this community," Andy Rapoch commented. Fall programs organized by the new Adults 55+ program included: six sessions on meditation and mindfulness; four Money Talks sessions, information sessions with the Canadian Association of Retired Persons (CARP); a home care session; and two movies. Another Money Talks session dealing with wills and power of attorney was cancelled due to weather. For 2017, the Adults 55+ program wants to continue to move toward the idea of the community centre being a place where seniors can drop in and socialize. WOCRC has already organized Tea and Talk opportunities taking place at the community centre every Thursday from March through April. $478,800

Major renovation projects coming up in 2017 BY JOHN CURRY John.firstname.lastname@example.org
The Constance and Buckham's Bay Community Centre (CBBCA) will see major renovation projects in 2017. CBBCA's secretary Len Russell reported at the centre's annual general meeting Feb. 12 that the replacement of the main floor washrooms will be done this year. This will involve a complete overhaul of the space including new fixtures and new flooring. The women's cubicles will be increased in size. A storage room for chairs and tables will be part of the project as will the creation of a maintenance room. This project is being fully funded by the City of Ottawa and should be completed in the first half of the year. The other major project is the creation of a
new, more spacious and equipped kitchen on the second floor, with the current bar area relocated to the back corner of the hall. The hall capacity, however, will remain as is at 208 people despite losing a small portion of hall space to the relocated bar area. The new kitchen will have 40 feet of counter space for food preparation as well as 20 feet of counter space with sinks for cleanup purposes. There will be up to eight work stations in the kitchen. The new kitchen will offer, as Len Russell said in his remarks, a "totally different experience" from what has been the case up to now with the current kitchen facility at the community centre. The space under the new counters will be used for rolling carts for cutlery, china, glasses and the like, allowing for easy set up and clean up.

$2,729 in 2016; a loss which had been expected. He said that a larger loss is expected in 2017 with the renovation projects that are planned. Revenues for the CBBCA grew to $161,307 in 2016 as it was the first full year of operation for the expanded community centre. Revenues the year before were $118,425. However, there was also a significant increase in expenses as well. It was reported that the Sandhills donor wall featuring engraved tiles should be completed soon. It will go on a wall in the stairway. Both The Lighthouse and TD Canada Trust have continued to support the youth athletics programs at the community centre with grants. The fitness centre at the community centre is now generating enough income to be self sufficient. In 16 months from now, the fitness equipment which is leased will be available for purchase by the CBBCA. Donations have helped with the CBBCA fundraising with major individual and major corporate and municipal donations raising over $100,000. These include $20,000 from Kirk Mandy, $15,000 from Donna Pritlove and major donations from, for example, Taggart, Waste Management and the city.

In addition, this new, more spacious and better-equipped kitchen area will be able to be used for teaching or group cooking opportunities. Cameras may be installed to assist in the teaching. A walk-in cooler has been included in the plans but right now it is slated for some time in the future due to the $15,000 cost. Another project that will happen in the upstairs area of the community centre this year will be creation of a performers' area which will also be able to serve as a spa area for services such as foot care and hair styling. The performers will be able to use it as a makeup room. It will also allow for easier access by performers to the washrooms. Len Russell pointed out that the stage at the community centre is being used about 50 times a year, including theatre performances, band performances, a comedy night, dance performances and now a new youth drama group. He said, the performers' area project should be done by early fall so that it is ready for the Eastern Ontario One Act Play Festival, which will happen at the community centre in early November. Reporting on CBBCA's financials, Len Russell noted that CBBCA experienced a net loss of

The activities 'Bunker Dief-FUN-days' are inspired by the winter carnival which used to be held at Canadian Forces Station (CFS) Carp, Diefenbunker in its previous life. This CFS Carp winter carnival was an annual three-day event that began with a torch relay from Parliament Hill to Carp. The activities included games such as ring toss, tugof-war and snow sculpting as well as quirkier events like a soda cracker whistling challenge and a beard-growing contest. It was all meant to generate fun and boost morale at CFS Carp. It is in this same spirit of fun as well as to celebrate

Democracy, community under threat
f you are reading this, then you should be interested in the recentlyreleased report commissioned by the federal government dealing with ways to address the current upheaval in Canada’s media. The report, authored by respected Canadian journalist Edward Greenspon on behalf of the public policy forum think-tank, contains 12 recommendations meant to strengthen the Canadian journalism landscape and ensure that it can continue to provide the scope and depth of reporting that Canadians have come to expect from their media. This report is particularly relevant with regard to Canada’s print media, which is faced with shrinking ad and subscription revenues and job cuts. The report sees this as a threat to our democracy. After all, if we lack the information to know what is going on, there will be no informed electorate and our democracy will not function as it should, particularly with the advent of fake news or so-called alternative facts. Another scenario that is equally worrying, though, is the role of the media — and, more particularly, community newspapers — in the creation and promo-
tion of “community.” Part of being a community is knowing what is going on locally, is knowing who are your neighbours, is taking pride in being part of that defined space that is known as “your community.” Indeed, Canada can be viewed as a vast community of communities with common values and ideals. And what is a significant feature of a local community? Yes, that’s right — you are holding it in your hands right now. The community newspaper. A robust community newspaper industry is one way of protecting and growing our local communities. Vibrant communities are, we believe, just as vital to the future of our society as is a robust democracy. Communities are the stage on which people primarily come together. That’s why all Canadians must take seriously proposals to strengthen our journalism vehicles in this country, including community newspapers. A media in crisis endangers both our democracy and our communities. With two such pillars of our society being under threat from pressures on the media these days, taking steps to assist the media in meeting these current challenges should be of interest to all Canadians.
Tennis comeback may get traction from Davis Cup
ost of the headlines that came out of the weekend of Davis Cup tennis in Ottawa dealt with the disqualification of a young Canadian player, Denis Shapovalov. Seventeen years old, losing badly and in a rage over his own poor performance, Shapovalov whacked a ball after losing a point and accidentally struck the umpire in the eye.

appropriately enough, in a converted hockey arena, should help the new tennis boom. The large crowds appreciated how well-organized the event was and the high calibre of the tennis, despite the absence of each nation’s biggest names. The hockey arena turned out to be ideal for viewing tennis. The audience was intensely partisan, albeit with a small but vocal U.K. contingent. The roars from each side increased in volume, length and intensity as the matches progressed. But all it took was for the umpire to say, “Thank you,” and the noise paused completely for the next serve. You could hear the hum of the air conditioning. It’s amazing to think that human beings, thousands of them, can behave like that. Another heartening thing about the crowd was its diversity, particularly in age. The number of kids

Stretch of Bayview is beyond repair Dear editor, Further to David Johnston's report on potholes in the Jan. 26 issue of the West Carleton Review, I have phoned 3-1-1 on several occasions and the public works crew has been quick to respond. Many times in the past year I have phoned 3-1-1 about the 30-plus potholes on Woodkilton Road where it meets Thomas Dolan Parkway. The patched holes are like a jigsaw puzzle. There needs to be a 30 foot long strip patch to cover the whole area, not just the holes that grow. A week later the small patch is out and more potholes have appeared.

$250,000 grant for studying the brain BY MICHELLE NASH BAKER email@example.com
The brain is like a complex computer. It, like computers, relays information in micro-fractions of a second. For decades, neuroscientists have been puzzled about how, exactly, this particular type of computer was programmed. Until now. University of Ottawa’s Brain and Mind Research Institute professors André Longtin and Leonard Maler have uncovered something to help the rest of us understand how we think, move and remember. To make it happen, 20 years ago the two scientists combined their respected fields — Longtin is a physicist, Maler is a neurobiologist — to figure out how to decode the human brain. “The principals were basically: What is it inside our brain and what does focus mean, what does it look like inside the brain when we focus,” Longtin said. “And we found the neural code that covers that.” They started out small, using electric fish, which have brains similar to ours, to trace how signals move during the entire sensory process. “We always had a vision, but I’m not sure we knew we were in for it for the long haul,” Longtin said. It might have taken some time, but the coding is starting to make sense. On Feb. 7, the two were awarded the Brockhouse Canada Prize for Interdisciplinary Research in Science and Engineering for their research. The award, sponsored by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada, recognizes outstanding teams that engage in research based on their combined knowledge and skills to produce a record of excellent research achievement in the natural sciences and engineering.
The prize comes with a research grant of $250,000. This funding, Longtin said, will allow them to link their current research with how the brain focuses on attention and memory — basically, how our senses tap into memories to gain information in order to help with attention and decisionmaking. The long-term goals for this research will include the two working at determining how to help those who have suffered from strokes, people who have attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, or develop Alzheimer’s disease. “If you can understand the attention and memory — then you can have a better understanding how it can mess up,” Longtin said. “And learn how to potentially repair it.” Longtin likened their work to learning about a vehicle’s engine. If something breaks, a mechanic needs to know and understand everything under the hood of the car to be able to fix it. This work, Longtin said, could result in the ability to create implants to help with memory loss, or to have the tools and the knowledge to help repair a tumour or damage caused by trauma.Longtin credits the university and the National Science and Engineering Research Council of Canada for making it possible for the research to continue.
At Constance Bay there is a disintegrated stretch of road going north on Bayview Drive past the Fire Station to 375 Bayview Drive. This section is beyond repair. I'm happy to often see the road crew patching there and thank them for doing it as I drive by. A few days later, the holes reappear. This is not a drainage problem. That very old section of roadway needs to be completely replaced. The West Carleton public works crews do a good job responding to 3-1-1 calls about numerous car-damaging holes.

Winter brings on urge to purge old clothing DIANA FISHER A
pparently people born under the Aries zodiac sign are more likely to be the kind who like to clear out unwanted stuff on a regular basis. I certainly live up to that ideal. Nothing makes me feel better than going through old books, clothes, even pieces of furniture that aren't being used, and giving them away.
I honestly think you can't have too many books but if I've read them and they aren't really my thing, I pass them along. I fill a box for the biggest book sale in Eastern Ontario each year, in Kemptville. Proceeds go to benefit the youth centre. Any unsold books go by ship to underdeveloped countries where they are appreciated even more.
Notice of Proposed Official Plan and Zoning By-Law Amendments For secondary dwelling units (coach houses) In accordance with the Planning Act and Section 5.2.3 of the Official Plan for the City of Ottawa, notice is hereby provided that Zoning By-law Amendment and Official Plan Amendment proposals have been initiated by the Planning, Infrastructure and Economic Development Department of the City of Ottawa. The proposed Official Plan Amendment (OPA) and Zoning By-law Amendment (ZBA) affect residential properties city wide. The purpose of the proposed OPA is to adjust an existing policy within Section 3.1 of the Official Plan to address issues with the policy direction permitting coach houses. The purpose of the proposed ZBA is to provide clarification to existing performance standards which implement coach houses as a permitted residential land use in the City of Ottawa. Changes to Section 142 will provide clearer performance standards to allow coach houses. The land to which the proposed OPA (file No. D01-01-17-0004) applies is also subject to the proposed ZBLA (file No. D02-02-17-0009). To review additional information and materials related to the proposed amendments, please contact the undersigned planner or go to ottawa.ca/coachhouse. The City of Ottawa would like to receive comments regarding the proposed amendments.
With five daughters we haven't had much trouble finding homes for extra furniture. But anything that really doesn't suit goes to the Hey Day garage sale to benefit Kemptville District Hospital. That's where I bought most of the furniture for my first apartment too. Old electronics can also be donated to the youth centre, where they are sold to a recycling organization. When it comes to clothing, I have a rule. If I haven't worn it all season and it's time to put it back into storage, it really should go. Likely it doesn't fit properly, and that's why it has been benched for months. Clothes like classic dresses and blazers that I may need for an office job someday get put in the back of the closet. Everything else - turtlenecks that choke, sweaters that ride up, jeans that ride a little too low ... get thrown on the bed in a pile. Next, I sort through these discarded items to see if any of them might suit someone else. In particular, shoes I only wore once because the heels are too high for me, a jacket I can no longer close, or a dress that, in hindsight, is really too short for someone with a granddaughter. These get put in a bag for the consignment store. If they are accepted for sale, they can earn me points toward my next purchase there. More than once I have been able to pick out something "for free" because I had a stockpile of points from shoes and clothes on consignment. Other items that didn't cost much to begin with get put in a bag for the Sally Ann. I'm a big supporter of our local thrift shore, and I head in there whenever I need something specific
The Accidental Farmwife but don't want to spend too much. It's amazing what you can find. Most of my gardening, camping and farming clothes are from there (which is basically half my wardrobe!). If you are giving away clothes and they have holes, stains, or they are missing buttons, don't give them to the Salvation Army. Places like the Sally Ann don't need to be bothered with things they can't resell. It just means they have to find another way to dispose of it. Save them the trouble and do it yourself - but don't throw out your unwearable clothes. You can also donate your unwanted clothing in a roadside collection bin. If the recycling operation requests "gently used" clothes, they need them for resale. They will sell them to Value Village or send them overseas to be worn again. Many of the wearable items that don't sell in our local thrift shops after a set period of time also end up overseas on very grateful recipients. Clothes that don't get sold can be sent to textile recyclers. Old fabrics can be turned into industrial rags, fibre filling for upholstery, soundproofing, home insulation and more. So feel good about cleaning out your closets - you're not just making room for more clothes! Whatever you decide to do, though, don't throw your unwanted clothing in the trash. Far too much clothing ends up in landfills, and when the fabrics break down they let off fumes that add to our air pollution. I know I'm enjoying the space inside my closet right now, having satisfied the urge to purge my unwanted outfits. But, as I mentioned earlier, I'm an Aries. My husband, a Gemini, would keep every last bit of clothing he owns if he had it his way. More than once I've caught him retrieving a holey pair of slippers or a beloved stained T-shirt that I had thrown out. Each to his own - I now have room to go shopping! email: email@example.com

Lanark Cattlemen’s Dinner and Dairy Farmers’ Reception
Over the past week, I had the opportunity to meet with and network with various rural and agricultural and agri-food stakeholders from within our riding and across Canada. I’d like to thank the Lanark County Cattlemen’s Association for inviting me to their annual Dinner and Dance, and informing me on the local issues that are of importance to the farmers of our riding. I also had the opportunity to talk with the farmers at the Dairy Farmers’ Reception who met in Ottawa to speak with lawmakers about their industry. It was a great chance to discuss the issues and concerns of those within these food production circles.

Winning six games in 48 hours. Awesome. Scoring in overtime to defeat top-ranked Waterloo in the championship game of the Ajax Ringette Silver Ring Tournament. Super. And defeating this Waterloo team after losing the championship game to the same team in the earlier Mississauga Tournament. How sweet it is for the West Ottawa U14 AA ringette team! In the Ajax Ringette Silver Ring Tournament, the West Ottawa U14 AA ringette team won its four round robin games in the tournament before then defeating Nepean 6-3 in semifinal action. This meant the team had to face top-ranked Waterloo in the championship game, the same team which earlier in the season had defeated the West Ottawa squad in the championship game in the Mississauga Tournament. In this championship game, West Ottawa scored first to take the lead and held a 2-1 lead until Waterloo scored to tie up the game with 20 seconds left on the clock. This meant overtime with West Ottawa coming on strong and scoring with less than two minutes gone in the overtime period to win the game and the championship. The West Ottawa U14 AA ringette team plays its league games in the Quebec Elite League (LERQ — Ligue Elite de Ringuette du Quebec). The team enjoys the opportunity to meet up with other ringette teams from Ontario in various tournaments throughout the season like those in Ajax and Mississauga. The team features Rheese Ronayne in nets, centre Caitlin Fioravanti and Jordyn Young, forwards Madison Cope, Becca Durr, Jalena Marelic, Olivia Maloney and Annika Van Vliet and defence players Haylie Balderson, Madison Broadhurst, Robyn Kramer, Jenna Marriner and Cameron McDonell. The players are hard working, fast skating and fun loving on the ice and as kooky off the ice as they are competitive on the ice. Head coach is Bev Young with assistants Bonnie Fioravanti and Debbie Winch-Maloney, and trainers Johanne Marelic and Fiona McDonell. The team is now preparing for the AA Provincials which will take place in Nepean from March 9 to March 12. This will see the West Ottawa U14 AA ringette team go up against the finest AA ringette teams in Ontario. The West Ottawa U14 AA ringette team draws players from Stittsville, West Carleton and Kanata.

other and Aunt Bertha were sitting at the kitchen table having a cup
of tea. “I don’t think I will ever get used to using onions in anything but a stew or soup pot,” Mother said. They had been talking about our neighbour Mrs. Beam, who said onions could cure everything, and were a heck of a lot cheaper than bringing old Dr. Murphy all the way out from Renfrew. Aunt Bertha assured Mother just about everyone out at Northcote took Mrs. Beam’s advice and used onions to fight colds, cure whooping cough, fix a sore throat, and believed they could even remove warts. I pretended I wasn’t listening and kept dressing and undressing my dolls. I knew the talk would eventually get around to me and the hacking cough I had had for days.

Well, after Aunt Bertha headed back across the 20-acre field with the cutter, Mother found one of the little flour bag sacks, chopped up a good sized distance away from her. onion, filled the bag, and hung After that first day, she left it around my neck. My eyes ran the house with the onions tied buckets of tears, which Mother around her neck, but tossed assured me would stop as soon them in the ditch at the end of our lane, and by the end of the as I got used to the onions.

Bertha called it. Mother put her faith in mustard plasters and Vic’s Vapor Rub from Ritza’s Drug Store, both of which had been tried on my bony chest. But she had to admit neither had done much to rid me of my hacking cough. I knew all about the onion treatments and I hated them with a passion. My sister Audrey hated them even more, because she said anyone in Senior Fourth should not smell like a pot of boiled onions at the Northcote School, and the one time she wore them everyone kept their

from the smell of raw onions which he said was making him sick. That night Mother decided she would do exactly what Mrs. Beam told her to do, not only to cure me, but to stop the cough from spreading to everyone else in the family. So chopped onions were put on the washstands in our bedrooms, onion bags hung around our necks, and we all went to bed wearing chopped onions in a pair of wool socks. Mother was doing everything Mrs. Beam told her to do. And if everyone came down with a bad cold, it wouldn’t be because she didn’t listen to Mrs. Beam! By the time the lamp was blown out, the upstairs reeked of onions, and my sister vowed she wasn’t going to put a foot outside the next morning to go to school until she washed her hair and had a sponge bath. Well! Talk about a surprise! I didn’t cough once during the night, my nose had stopped running, everyone seemed hale and
hearty, and it looked like no one else in the house was going to get my cold. Audrey doused herself with talcum powder, Mother put dabs of vanilla behind my ears, the brothers were well aired out by the time they came in from doing barn chores, and only the faintest smell of onions remained. So off we went to the Northcote School. Mrs. Beam continued to be the person to go to when sickness invaded a household. Onions and coal oil were her favourite treatments. Mother, who never quite got used to them, nevertheless agreed they were worth trying, and a lot cheaper than the $2 old Doctor Murphy charged for coming twelve-andhalf miles out from Renfrew.

West Carleton volunteer Sharon Roper receives City Builder Award BY JENNIFER MCINTOSH email@example.com
Sharon Roper, a volunteer with the West Carleton Food Access Centre, was named a city builder by Mayor Jim Watson on Feb. 8. Roper, who worked as a nurse for 45 years, said she wanted something to do after retiring five years ago. “I wanted to still be of service,” she said.
Aside from volunteering to co-ordinate the food bank — which serves 66 families — Roper is the co-ordinator of the Angel Tree program. Roper starts well before Christmas to collect toys for families in West Carleton. The toys are sorted and distributed with food hampers. Roper spends a lot of her time ensuring that no resident of West Carleton and the surrounding areas has to do without. Last February, when there was an issue with the water pipe at the seniors’ residence and the
water had to be shut off, Sharon took it upon herself to laundry for many of the residents. “We always need volunteers, they bring the community together,” Roper said, adding the food bank has no external funding and is only made possible through the work of the 35 fulland part-time volunteers that keep the organization running. When Roper heard she was getting the City
Builder Award from the mayor’s office, she thought it was a telephone scam. “It took us a while to convince to convince her it was for real,” Watson said. The Mayor’s City Builder Award is given at each city council meeting to a deserving individual or community organization or group to recognize their efforts to make the city a better place.

Ward 5 West Carleton-March Sharon Roper receives Mayor’s City Builder Award At the City Council meeting on February 8, Mayor Jim Watson and I presented the Mayor’s City Builder Award to West Carleton-March resident Sharon Roper. The City Builder Award is a civic honour created to recognize outstanding volunteerism or exemplary action. Sharon is a dedicated contributor to the operation of the West Carleton Food Access Centre. As a long-standing volunteer and community member, she has dedicated countless hours to ensuring that no resident in the West Carleton-March area goes without. Sharon also plays a role in the training and encouragement of others who volunteer in the community. She is a wonderful role model working with local students and Pathfinders. For years, Sharon has also been the coordinator of the Angel Tree Program in Ward 5, which collects toys for families and which are distributed with food hampers during the Christmas season. Last February, Sharon even assisted when the water had to be shut off at the local senior’s residence. She saw a need and took action by doing laundry for several of the seniors. Congratulations to Sharon. This is a well deserved honour! Jerseys & Jewels 2017 Women’s Gala
Snowshoe outing on Macnamara Nature Trail BY MICHAEL RUNTZ
Consider taking your family for a snowshoe outing and connect with nature Sunday, Feb. 19 on the Macnamara Nature Trail. Snowshoeing can open up a completely new world of winter nature. Find out for yourself on Family Day weekend and specifically Sunday, Feb. 19, weather and trail conditions permitting. Everyone is invited to this family showshoe at the Macnamara Nature Trail, one of 150 events which Arnprior is promoting to mark Canada's 150th anniversary. Remember to check the Macnamara Field Naturalists' Club's website to confirm the event in case of cancellation. The Macnamara Trail, part of Arnprior's Millennium Trail System, is operated by the Macnamara Field Naturalists' Club. Members of the club will be staffing a table at the McNab Street trailhead from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. to answer questions and stamp your Arnprior 150 passport. If you have young ones with you, ask for a bag of seeds so they can feed the chickadees from their hands at the bird feeder station where chickadees and nuthatches are usual visitors. The main trail, which has 19 numbered stops, is marked with blue and white hiking symbols, and there are several benches along the way. Keep in mind that winter boots, tuque and mittens are a must for staying cosy when sitting or standing still. If you decide to snowshoe only part of the 4.5-kilometre trail, the way back is marked with blue ar-
The Macnamara Nature Trail offers a chance to get close to nature. rows. Take in the fresh winter air, and admire trees and shrubs in their winter garb. Watch for birds. Bring along binoculars for a closer look at feathery winter residents, including a Barred Owl spotted recently by several visitors. Look for tracks and other signs of animals as they go about their winter activities. Any sharp hoof prints? White-tailed deer are frequently encountered along the trail. Other tracks might belong to fishers, rabbits, Ruffed Grouse, shrews, mice and weasels. Even in winter, we can learn a great deal about the natural and human heritage along the Macnamara Nature Trail. Keep your eyes peeled for intriguing things to see such as the ruins of an old lime kiln or the crimson-coloured seed heads of sumac.
Cedar trees might show evidence of rabbit browsing and scattered twigs and cones on the ground beneath might hint at a Red Squirrel harvesting higher up. You will find information about the natural or human history of each of the numbered stop in The Macnamara Trail Guide. A copy can be borrowed at the trailhead and dropped off in the return box at the kiosk or kept as a souvenir. A small donation toward its cost would be most appreciated. You can also download an interactive trail guide from the club's website at mfnc.ca where you will find more information about the trail, its history and a new trail extension project to add a 1.5-kilometre loop and a lookout across Goodwin Marsh. Named after local naturalist and amateur scientist extraordinaire Charles Macnamara, the
nature trail is located on 280 acres owned by Nylene Canada in the Nopiming Game Sanctuary beside the Ottawa River at Arnprior. Many of the special nature features highlighted on the trail were discovered by Macnamara nearly a century ago. Starting as an accountant in 1855 and eventually becoming secretary-treasurer, Macnamara worked at the McLachlin Bros. sawmills in Arnprior until its closure. He is best known as a talented amateur naturalist and photographer, extensively documenting the animals and plants of the Arnprior area. In 1920, Macnamara successfully petitioned the provincial government to establish the Nopiming Game Sanctuary in northeastern Arnprior and the former Fitzroy township. His notes, scientific articles, photography and correspondence with international colleagues are housed in the Arnprior and McNab/Braeside District Archives. The Macnamara Field Naturalists' Club, named after Charles Macnamara, built the Macnamara Trail in the late 1990s and continues to maintain it through and agreement with Nylene Canada which owns the land next to its McNab Street plant on which the trail lies. Through the club's diligence and Nylene's generosity, the community has access to the 4.5-kilometre nature trail in today's Nopiming Crown Game Preserve where Charles Macnamara used to study nature. This is indeed a fitting tribute to this talented individual.
West Carleton Minor Hockey Association (WCMHA) is holding a fundraising event in support of WCMHA and Roger Neilson House.

Todd Nicholson helps Horton township celebrate Festival of Rinks BY SHERRY HAAIMA firstname.lastname@example.org
The smile said it all. Twenty-month-old Freija Thomas was among those in attendance at Saturday’s sledge hockey demonstration at Horton’s outdoor rink. Born with spina bifida, Freija has partial paralysis and uses braces for mobility. This, however, doesn’t slow her down, says mom Alana Thomas, of Westmeath, who was also joined by her son, three-year-old Hudson Thomas and nephew Brent Labre, 9. Freija watched patiently as her cousin and brother got strapped into the sledges and set off. Was she ready, asked her mom? A huge smile and excited nod followed. “She’s always going,” said Alana. “She loves hockey, her brother loves hockey. This is great.” Dunrobin’s Todd Nicholson, with support from Community
Living’s sledge hockey team, the Ice Pickers, led the demonstration. Nicholson has taken on almost every role he possibly could in the sledge hockey world — Olympian, gold medallist, team captain, public speaker, advocate, Paralympic committee athlete’s council chair, flag bearer, Own the Podium representative, and was recently named as Canada’s chef de mission for the 2018 Paralympic Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea. The demonstration was held as part of Horton’s Festival of Rinks celebration. Nicholson had his son Tate and father Stuart with him to help out. “This is an incredible rink,” said Nicholson of the township’s covered outdoor rink, which sees plenty of traffic, including a popular children’s hockey league. He praised Community Living’s sledge hockey program and their efforts in promoting the sport. “It’s a sport anybody can play,” he said. “It’s designed for
Todd Nicholson is joined by his son Tate and father Stuart. people with disabilities but able bodied athletes can play, as well.” Elizabeth McFarlane of the Ice Pickers agreed. The Community Living sledge hockey players take to the ice at the Ma-Te-Way Activity Centre in Renfrew on Wednesday mornings. “We have a lot of fun,” she said, noting the program began a number of years ago with four sledges built by her husband Glenn. “That got us started.” With files from Brier Dodge

Site selected for central library BY JENNIFER MCINTOSH
Somerset Coun. Catherine McKenney was the sole dissenting voice on council during a vote to finalize the site for the central library. Council opted to move ahead with the site at 557 Wellington St. after three years of studies and public consultation on Feb. 8. Despite the near-unanimous vote, several councillors questioned the selection process and took issue with the site’s accessibility to Centretown residents, who walk to the existing location. In an effort to work out a solution, the library board passed a resolution to find a way to serve Centretown residents with services in the ward — though what services will be available hasn’t been discussed. Rideau-Rockcliffe Coun. Tobi Nussbaum left the room during the vote, and took some heat for the move from Cumberland Coun. Stephen Blais. “What a chicken move,” Blais tweeted following the council meeting. “Lot of righteous indignation but not principled enough to vote against it but he’ll show up for groundbreaking photo.” In an article on his website, Nussbaum says he believes “the process was flawed, and the evaluation and scoring weighted towards a site that supported diffusion, that belief will not prevent from supporting this project moving forward.” Despite this, Nussbaum said his problems with the selection process are what caused him to abstain from the vote. His wasn’t the only voice around the council table that question the site selection. Gloucester-Southgate Coun. Diane Deans called the process “wonky” and said she was disappointed. Deans said she would have liked to see the site selection go to a city committee where councillors could hear input from residents. Deans also wanted to know why the site was so small. The library, which is being built as a joint facility with Library and Archives Canada, is estimated to cost $168 million. It will be 12,077 square metres — only 2,322 square metres more than the current downtown branch. Elaine Condos, manager of the central library project, said Ottawa has a very strong branch system —
with 32 branches serving neighbourhoods across the city. Library board chair Tim Tierney said one of the reasons the library is smaller than the one proposed in 2006 is because it’s not all about books anymore. “Back in 2006, it was all about the Dewey Decimal system, now it’s about places and spaces,” he said. Barrhaven Coun. and former library chair said Jan Harder agreed and said librarians have a role to play in the community. “Librarians can leave the buildings and do outreach,” she said. “Libraries are fluid.” Deans also took on the survey completed by Nanos that showed residents were in support of the site. According to the report to council, the survey looked at responses from 1,000 residents. The majority of respondents — 88 per cent — were in favour of the partnership, but the question indicated the partnership represents a savings of $12.8 million. The question about the preferred site suggested that it saved $33 and $8 million over the other site options presented. Deans said the questions seemed to be leading. Nik Nanos, the head of the research company that performed the survey said the questions might not have been perfect, but they were fair. “If I had done research without the costs associated I would be facing questions today about why they weren’t included,” he said, adding that residents were concerned with several factors, including costs and location. Nanos said he developed the questions without input from anyone. “Anyone who knows me, knows how I roll,” he said. College Coun. Rick Chiarelli said when the city looked at building a new library during his tenure as chair in 2006; the cost was double with a much larger footprint. Mayor Jim Watson said the process for the library’s site selection was the most rigorous and well thought out in Canada. “It’s the first test of our council,” he said. “To see if we are going to live up to our policy on transit-oriented development.” The federal government has not approved the partnership yet. If they do, the city’s portion will be $99 million, with an opening date of sometime in 2022.
Future of Heritage Park in Carp depends on financing and zoning BY JOHN CURRY
The proposed Heritage Park in Carp is still alive. A motion to purchase the 14-acre site on Landstaff Drive between the West Carleton Family Health Centre and the Huntley Curling Club was passed unanimously at a meeting called by the West Carleton Heritage Park Association at the Agricultural Hall at the Carp fairgrounds on Feb. 7. The approval to purchase, though,
is subject to financing and rezoning. The property is currently listed for sale with an asking price of $5 million. It is currently zoned for residential development, thought to be capable of accommodating over 200 housing units. It is believed there is some funding available from the City of Ottawa and some funds from donations provided by members of the public. "It's a start," said Stan Carruthers, president of the West Carleton Heritage Park Association who has been
involved with the proposal since 1999. He said, the first priority is to buy the land and then consideration can be given about developing a heritage park on the site. He said, there are a lot of agricultural heritage structures and antique farm machinery available in West Carleton for possible display at such a heritage park. He puts out a plea that anyone who is interested in the project should come forward and sit on the Board of the West Carleton Heri-
tage Park Association. He said, new board members with interest and energy are welcome as the association tries to proceed with the heritage park project. "We want it to be a special piece of property and special project," he said. The proposed project had been in a holding pattern as the association had not held an annual general meeting for nearly three years. The Feb. 7 meeting also served as an annual general meeting, with Stan and other

existing board members re-elected. The Carp Community Design Plan makes reference to the community's desire to retain its agricultural roots, with one idea being to create a heritage park which could accommodate a museum within a complex of older buildings brought to the site from other parts of West Carleton. For more information about the heritage park proposal or about the West Carleton Heritage Park Association, please contact Stan Carruthers on 613-797-3478.

SPECIAL TO THE REVIEW
Snowmobilers are being urged to drive safely. The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) and the Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs (OFSC) are urging snowmobilers to stop taking unnecessary risks while riding, especially in view of six recent snowmobiling deaths. There have been 13 snowmobile fatalities this winter compared to eight deaths at this point last season. The constant over the past two seasons has been the causal factors leading to the deaths. OPP investigators are linking the fatalities to riding on unsafe ice, speeding, loss of control, alcohol use and driver inattention, confirming that driver behaviours continue to cause other-
wise preventable snowmobile deaths. "The vast majority of these incidents are not random 'accidents' that can happen to just any snowmobiler. Somewhere along the way, a risk was taken or an error in judgment was made," said OPP Deputy Commissioner Brad Blair who is Provincial Commander, Traffic Safety and Operational Support. "As with all recreational activities, there are always risks. These latest incidents serve as tragic reminders that making smart choices while snowmobiling helps ensure that your journey will be as safe as it is enjoyable," added Lisa Stackhouse, manager, participation and partnership development at OFSC.
Hockey Talks Mental Health Awareness Night SPECIAL TO THE REVIEW
The Bell Do it for Daron (DIFD) Hockey Talks Mental Health Awareness Night at Canadian Tire Centre raised $64,247 for the Youth Services Bureau (YSB). The event was presented by Ferguslea Properties Limited along with the Ottawa Senators Foundation. The funds raised are being put toward the three-year $300,000 funding commitment to the Bridges Project at YSB, which began in 2016. The Bridges Project at YSB is designed to address the ser-
vice gap by offering youth and families a variety of therapy interventions with a focus on recovery and wellness. These interventions are provided by a treatment team that includes psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, nurses, child and youth counsellors and occupational therapists. The team provides a seamless, cost-effective integrated response. In addition to focusing on treatment services, the Bridges Project can help prevent relapse and readmission to hospital through the provision of educa-
tion and support services. The Bridges Project provides services for youth including a 24/7 mental health crisis line, an online crisis web-chat service, a walk-in clinic and family and school-based counselling services. Hockey Talks aims to bring the topic of mental health to the forefront of the public realm and alleviate the misconceptions and stigma often unfairly associated with mental illness. The seven National Hockey League clubs in Canada have collaborated on the Hockey Talks initiative.

Porcupines like poplar, just like beavers MICHAEL RUNTZ
I think it safe to say everyone knows that beavers live in water, leaving their safety only to forage on land or to sleep inside a lodge. While they eat both aquatic and terrestrial herbaceous plants through much of the year, especially in winter, much of their diet consists of the bark and twigs. Beavers aren’t alone in their fondness for poplar. In the rodent group, there resides another species that also eats bark, twigs, and opening leaves of poplar. Porcupines eat woody material and, like beavers, possess a long intestinal pouch full of bacteria to digest cellulose. Unlike beavers, however, porcupines don’t eat their dropping the first pass through and don’t cut down trees to access meals. They climb trees using their impressive climbing gear: huge claws and rough-skinned feet. Right now is a good time to see porcupines, for they will sleep in trees during the day, their dark bodies soaking up solar energy, with the lack of leaves making them easy to spot. Other times they sleep in dens situated in rock caverns or hollow trees, ven-
turing out to forage at night. On cold days they conserve energy by lowering their body temperature by 5°C. Apart from starvation and falling out of trees, porcupines have another problem. Some are shot by humans because they damage trees; others die when they cross highways or stop to glean salt from the asphalt. Porcupines are slow moving animals built for climbing, not running, and thus are prone to being hit by cars. They need not run from predators because they own a powerful defence: modified hairs known as quills. Around 30,000 quills adorn a porcupine’s body, with its lower back and tail particularly well endowed. Contrary to popular belief, porcupines cannot throw quills. An attacker must make contact with them before they get dislodged. When confronted, a porcupine turns its back to an attacker and swings its tail back and forth. Once embedded, overlapping scales allow quills to work their way through flesh when muscles contract and expand. Quills function just like plastic cable zip ties, allowing one-way movement only, which is why they’re so hard to remove

from dogs that foolishly attack a porcupine. Quills have another unusual feature. They have a greasy coating that contains antibiotics. This coating might prevent porcupines from getting infections when they impale themselves with their own weaponry after falling out of a tree, which apparently isn’t rare. It’s also possible that they are meant to hurt, not kill, attackers. Some predators teach their offspring how to hunt so by giving an attacker a memorable lesson, it might pass on its painfully attained knowledge to its young. This wouldn’t apply to fishers, however, for they regularly eat porcupines. They kill them by eventually flipping them over onto their back and attacking their quill-less belly. Porcupine quills have another unusual feature. Their bases are white and they contain fluorescent compounds, features that make them highly visible at night. Just like the white stripes on a skunk, porcupine quills provide visual warning. Perhaps this column’s title might have been: “The Skunk That Lives in Trees!” The Nature email is mruntz@ start.ca

Cotton is desperately seeking a retirement home to live out the rest of his days. He’s a senior boy at 9 years old, and has been through a lot the past year, his elderly owner passed away and he was passed from home to home with no one in the family being able to care for him. He eventually ended up at the shelter. He is a social guy, likes attention and is very affectionate, he is quiet. He tolerates the other cats but would love a home where he could be the center of attention, and have a nice warm lap to curl up on in the evenings! Do you have room in your home and heart for Cotton?

What people call a pre-nuptial agreement, or a “prenup” is actually called a marriage contract in Ontario. If a marriage meets an unfortunate demise, the marriage contract provides the parties with a high degree of certainty about how they will proceed in the event of a divorce. Marriage contracts are generally the exception as opposed to the rule; they are often seen as being pessimistic, unromantic, or calculating. However, those who have had to rely on them will generally recommend them for providing clarity and guidance in a difficult time. They are generally more common in second marriage situations; the parties having already been through marital breakdown and, generally speaking, a more mature asset base and shorter distance to retirement. These factors increase the practical appeal of a marriage contract. In order to have a valid marriage contract, it is important the parties be operating with full financial disclosure

and an informed understanding of their legal situation. They are most commonly invalidated for a lack of full financial disclosure, or matters such as undue influence or fraud. A contract will generally be upheld when it is apparent that both parties gave and received full financial disclosure and they were fully aware and informed as to the legal consequences of the contract. Each party should have independent legal advice. This protects against a future claim that one party was not fully aware of what they were signing. Marriage contracts are particularly advisable in situations where the parties have significant disparity in their incomes or asset bases. In those situations, one party may have particular concerns about exposing their assets to the other party in the event of a divorce. A valid marriage contract drafted by a family lawyer can act as an effective insurance policy against what could be a significant financial setback.
