EMC Business – The best in business in West Carleton were among those recognized at the 13th annual People’s Choice Businesses Awards last Thursday evening. The awards were handed out by the Kanata Chamber of Commerce during a glitzy event at the Brookstreet Hotel Feb. 23. The sold-out event was held to celebrate business excellence in Goulbourn, Kanata and West Carleton and was emceed by Kurt Stoodley of CTV Morning Live Ottawa. Online voting determined finalists and winners and this year’s competition attracted a record number of votes as 13,544 online votes were registered during the voting period.

EMC News – A meeting is in the works for government officials and residents against military explosive testing in an out-of-service Kinburn quarry. A group of some 82 homeowners in Deerwood Estates have complained about noise and reverberations originating in the Cavanagh-owned quarry last summer and December.

But company spokesman Bill Bauer said in an email that no Ministry of Environment (MOE) regula-

to play hockey. Discovering that no similar program existed in Ottawa, he rented ice time and offered a one-week summer hockey camp, attracting three kids and 10 volunteers. But television coverage publicized the program and requests for participation flowed in. Thus the Capital City Condors began. By the end of year three, the program had capped registrations at 40 but had a waiting list of 70 youngsters. A hockey program for youth with intellectual and/or physical disabilities, the Capital City Condors is open to both boys and girls six years old and up who are unable to play in any other league. No skills are required, just a desire to play a team sport. Currently in its fourth season, the Capital City Condors program has expanded to include a second team based in Rockland. There are plans to add to more teams, one in Ottawa South and one in Gatineau. Perkins, in his remarks when receiving the award, praised the many, including his wife Shana, who has pitched in to help establish the Capital City Condors program.

“The ministry has reviewed copies of the blasting data from monitoring stations around the quarry and can confirm the noise and vibrations comply with ministry standards,” Jordan said. The quarry has been rezoned to allow explosive testing since 2008. West Carleton-March

Great leaders Ottawa city council passes make the difference expanded smoke-free bylaw in your city’s March Break camps

EMC News – Residents must butt out in parks, on patios and beaches or else face heavy fines as of July 2. City council voted 22-2 to expand the smoke-free bylaw to include municipal properties, such as parks and beaches, and all bar and restaurant patios on Wednesday, Feb. 22. An awareness and warning phase will begin on April 2, with fines and enforcement to start on July 2. Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley and Orleans Coun. Bob Monette were the only two on council to dissent. “I wanted the education (period to run) through the summer,” said Hubley. Under the expanded bylaw there will be no smoking anywhere on park property, including athletic fields; this includes the Walter Baker Park in Kanata, where this year’s Capital Hoedown event will take place. “I support the expansion of the non-smoking areas, such as (near) play structures,” said Hubley. “I just felt this proposal…reached too far.” He said he agrees with no smoking near play structures, but didn’t agree with making it illegal to smoke anywhere on park property. “We’re criminalizing the person walking his dog at 11 o’ clock at night,” he said. “I was very disappointed there was no recognition of that.” West Carleton-March Coun. Eli El-Chantiry is pleased the city has taken this step to eliminate smoking. “It (smoking) has been an issue everywhere,”

he said. “From a public health perspective, there is a compelling argument to ban smoking from places like patios.” El-Chantiry said he believes everyone should be able to enjoy a meal on a patio without having to worry about second hand smoke, especially children. “I am not trying to preach about health concerns, which we all know about,” said ElChantiry, a former smoker himself. “All we (city) are saying is it not a level playing field and it should be.” In his capacity as one of the city’s deputy mayors, El-Chantiry said he met with the BIAs and the biggest one, the Byward Market BIA, reported its membership overwhelmingly supported the extension of the smoking ban to bar and restaurant patios. Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson echoed El-Chantiry’s comments. “It has become more constricted and I think some people are unhappy about that, but we have to err on the side of health and particularly for the health of children,” she said. Mayor Jim Watson said the new strategy will help make Ottawa a healthier city. “These steps will help protect residents, families and children from second-hand smoke while at the same time make Ottawa a leader in smoke-free spaces,” he said. “Smoking-related illnesses continue to strain our health care system and it is important that we renew our efforts to reduce smoking rates.” (With files from THERESA FRITZ)

Call goes out to try and find missing dog rescued from Kentucky By THERESA FRITZ

EMC News – A plea has gone out to the public to help ďŹ nd a special dog that went missing two days after he arrived in West Carleton. Maxwell, a red fox lab, was rescued from an unhealthy environment in Kentucky, and placed in a foster home by Hopeful Hearts Dog Rescue. However, he ran away from his foster home, located in the area of Upper Dwyer Hill Road and Old Almonte Road,

Jan. 24. He has been on the run since. “He is such a frightened, confused dog,� said Roz Phelps, founder of Hopeful Hearts Dog Rescue. Since 2005, Hopeful Hearts has rescued dogs of all sizes, ages and conditions but was started to primarily to rescue senior and special needs dogs. “There are not a lot of rescues for dogs who are old, injured or dying,� Phelps explained.

“We have placed 500 dogs since we started,� she added. “We have them (rescued) from as far away as Lebanon.� She said Maxwell was rescued from a hoarding situation and had not had time to adjust to his new home when he ran away. FRIGHTENED

Along with being scared, the dog is also not familiar with winter and has no winter coat, having come from the

southern United States. A very shy and timid dog, Phelps said Maxwell will not come if called and will not respond to loud noise. He has been seen coming out of the bush and on rural roads in West Carleton. He was last spotted at an industrial business on Carp Road near McGee Side Road on or about Feb. 9. Before that, he was spotted on McGee Side Road at the 417 on or about Feb.7. “We have distributed about 500 yers and people in the area have all been so wonderful in trying to help us ďŹ nd this very unique looking dog,â€? Phelps said Maxwell has a scar on the right side of his face. He had been wearing a collar, but it was located Feb. 1 on Old Almonte Road and Howie Roads. A reward is being offered for the dog’s safe return. “Do not approach or try to catch Maxwell,â€? Phelps stated. “However throw food out to keep him in the area.â€? Phelps said Maxwell deserves the second chance he was getting in Ontario. “It will be a lot of work to rehabilitate this boy. It was going to be a lot of work anyway, but it will be more now.â€? Any member of the public who sees Maxwell should contact Roz Phelps (613) 2860009, Susan (613) 836-4729 or Glenn (613) 229-2422 immediately. Do not try and catch him on your own.

NICK KARADZA Real Estate Author and broker A real estate brokerage has been helping investors proďŹ t 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 Screwdriverâ€? 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.â€? 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 ow each and every month. Plus we have locked in more than $112,557 of proďŹ t’’. The couple stated that the homes they invested in were “in moveâ€? in condition so they didn’t have to spend their evenings and weekends ďŹ xing up homes. Paul and Maja liked this approach because it didn’t require them to have the ďŹ nancial 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!

EMC News – Walking across the road from the Christmas 2013 farmers’ market will be like walking along an all new commercial zone in the village of Carp. Diagonal parking spaces will point to the former rectory at the corner of Falldown Lane and Carp Road. The rectory, rented to a family until March 31, will be converted to office space for health or professional-services tenants. Next, strollers will come across Alice’s Village CafÊ, a causal counter-service restaurant specializing in coffees, homemade soups and sandwiches such as paninis. Complementing the building next door, Alice’s will have huge windows in the brick façade backdropping a covered patio. After that, folks will walk past The Rectory, the newly finished retirement residence for some 130 seniors. Although not the main entrance to the complex, it will still have welcoming doors and a mini lobby flanked by suites for assisted living residents.

Giving all kids a chance to play hockey

Dunrobin Community Association offers hockey program for those with special needs By THERESA FRITZ

EMC Sports – An extracurricular hockey program for youngsters with special needs scored big with participants, volunteers and parents this season. The program was started by Dunrobin Community Association president Greg Patacairk, and modeled after a

special needs soccer program he ran last summer through the Dunrobin Community Association. Once a week, as weather permitted, participants could lace up their skates, grab their helmets and hit the community association’s outdoor rink to enjoy Canada’s game for 45 minutes. For some, skating was a new experience

and for others, it was a chance to learn how to play hockey, expand their skills and have some fun. “It’s a brilliant thing. They are kids and they should be able to have fun,” Patacairk noted. What made the program even more special was the fact Patacairk enlisted the help of area teenagers as volunteers

who helped with the youngsters, who ranged in age from six to 10. He was proud to see teenagers give selflessly of

their time to help others experience the joy of hockey. “It is truly wonderful what was accomplished here. Giv-

en the opportunity, these teens really flourished. It is inspiring to see them take on such

Time for council to make some tough decisions


fter foisting further fees on the residents of a city set to come under the knife of federal spending cuts, Ottawa’s city council needs to take a long, hard look at the way it conducts its business. The latest increase will see water rates rise by six per cent this year, the first in a series of hikes that will dip no lower than five per cent per year through 2021. The rate increase, coupled with the addition of $460 million in debt

to the city’s books, will help pay for major sewer and water main repairs across the city. This latest approval by the council, led by Mayor Jim Watson, follows a property tax increase of 2.45 per cent in 2011, a 2.39 per cent increase for the 2012 budget. Each of these increases mean fewer dollars in the pockets of people regularly being told by governments and experts alike that they’re carrying too much debt. The water rate hike also

comes as the province has been advised in the Drummond Report that Ontario needs to cut billions from its budget. Meanwhile the federal government, employer of many Ottawa residents, is making strong suggestions cuts are pending. All this is not to suggest that council should be taking a harder line on tax or other rate increases. On the contrary, replacing the city’s water mains and sewer lines, which

are in some cases more than a century old, is vital work. A city that can’t supply its citizens with clean water nor take their waste away is not a place anyone wants to live. The same goes for the significant reconstruction of the city’s transportation network, a $340-million program dubbed Ottawa On The Move. Roads, bicycle paths and sidewalks are essential to a functioning city. Where the city will need to begin scrutinizing its

spending is in other, less vital areas. Projects like the Rink of Dreams adjacent to city hall, the partial funding of a makeover for the Ottawa Baseball Stadium and funding for a slew of community-centric projects like arenas, pools and parks are all noble commitments, but do they really make sense when much larger, much more important expenditures are on the horizon? Every elected official loves to tout the successful implementation of pet projects.

Those are easy decisions to make. But as the fiscal belt tightens for taxpayers and the provincial and federal governments, our municipal officials can’t continue to pretend tough decisions can be avoided. Everything can’t be top priority all the time. A period of austerity is upon us whether we like it or not, and the challenge for this council going forward is learning when it needs to just say no.


Conversation in context BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse


asked an older relative of mine the other day if she thought it was possible to achieve daily happiness. “No,” she curtly replied. “I think most people spend most of their lives working and having a bit of fun, but mainly just trying to keep their heads above water.” The statement bothered me, not only because I used to consider this woman to be an optimist, but also because it was so lacking in hope. I decided to raise the question to a friend of mine. “It’s hard to be happy every day when it’s so grey outside.” Still unsettled, I began to slip the happiness question into every conversation I had over the course of a week. I quickly began to realise that I was surrounded by pessimists: “Maybe, but you’d need some pretty good drugs to sustain it.” “Who’s got time to think about being happy?” “I doubt it. Not if you live in a country where you have to wait five hours to see a doctor in urgent care.” And then I started to think perhaps I was simply asking the wrong question. Or to be more precise, perhaps I was asking the right question, but in the wrong context. Too often we think of a conversation as an isolated event. But that is rarely, if ever, the case. The fact is that every one of us comes to every conversation from a different context, a context our interlocutors may not understand or even consider. Not surprisingly, our inability to think about each conversation in broader context is often what causes conflict in our relationships. Think about a typical marital spat.

Let’s say a woman asks her husband what he’d like to eat for dinner this week. She’s come to the conversation looking for help to make up the grocery list. To her, it’s a conversation about a simple chore. Nothing controversial there. But if he’s just had a conversation with his investment advisor about a slump in the stock market, he may be annoyed at the question and snap at her that he doesn’t want to think about groceries. As a result, she may be hurt, or angry; she may accuse him of not wanting to take part in the necessary household tasks. The next thing you know, both parties are yelling at each other about things that have nothing to do with groceries or the stock market. It’s not hard to imagine how a series of like conversations – each viewed in isolation – could form a pattern that would eventually erode the foundations of the marital relationship. But just as the husband’s response had nothing to do with his will to take part in household planning, nor are my friends and relatives necessarily eternal pessimists. After thinking about it more deeply, I started to assess the broader context of each conversation. The first relative I spoke to lives in Europe she has been very concerned about the state of the economy. Another had just returned to Canadian winter after a 10-day vacation in Mexico. Another was dealing with an especially busy schedule at work, at the same time having difficulty keeping her toddler in bed at night. Had I taken the time to consider their comments in a context broader than my conversation about happiness, I may not have been so quick to conclude I was surrounded by pessimists. Instead, I may have chosen to engage in a deeper and more meaningful conversation, one which would have included listening more carefully and objectively to what they were saying, and asking questions to gain further understanding of what dominated their emotions prior to the start of our discussion. And I concluded that maybe if we all practiced better listening and understanding with each other, it would be possible to find and maintain a bit of happiness in our daily lives after all.

10 West Carleton Review EMC - Thursday, March 1, 2012

Nesting season has begun EMC Lifestyle - When we think of a season for nesting birds, summer usually comes to mind. The vast majority of our songbirds, which are now beginning to feel the nervous energy behind migration starting to stir in their veins, do not even return until the risk of frost is banished and the promise of insect meals is fulďŹ lled. Yet, some birds are not only thinking about nesting, they have already started the process. Locally, two species are either ďŹ nishing off their nests or are already placing eggs into them. Great Horned Owls are the ďŹ rst to nest but unlike most other early nesters, they do not make their own nests. They usurp the still-vacant nests of crows and hawks, which is likely one reason they start nesting so early: the nest makers have not yet returned to reclaim their nests. Great Horned Owls usually lay two eggs, a couple of days apart, and start incubation right away. Only the female incubates and the male brings his mate food on a nightly basis. Common Ravens are also starting to nest but they build their own egg holders. They build massive stick structures placed on cliff ledges or high up in towering trees. Ravens have also taken to nesting on human structures

Michael Runtz Natureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Way including train trestles (as near Morris Island), powerline towers, and the top of silos. Ravens lay usually ďŹ ve eggs that, like those of owls, are incubated only by the female, the process lasting around three weeks. Since ravens build their own nests, the question arises as to why they nest so early. It may be because the sites they choose are not easy to ďŹ nd, with more demand than supply. Few cliffs offer more than one suitable ledge, which is perhaps why these clever birds are regularly using human-made structures. A bit farther north, another

species is currently nest building. Gray Jays are boreal forest birds that nest as close by as Mt. St. Patrick and Golden Lake, with Algonquin Park being home to many more of these affable birds. There, they have been extensively studied for nearly 40 years by Dan Strickland, retired Chief Park Naturalist. Currently, Dan is exploring spruce fringes around creeks and lakes daily in search of jay nests. No doubt he has already found a number, which he will visit later in the season to put identifying coloured bands on the nestlingsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; legs. The jewellery allows Dan to readily identify individual birds and follow their movements in the future. Gray Jays build bulky nests in tall spruces. Obviously they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t face a shortage of nest sites. Instead, their drive to nest early comes from their need to store a sufďŹ cient amount of food to sustain them through the next winter. By nesting early, they and their offspring have adequate time to prepare for the next winter. So while winter is giving its last gasps, a few birds are already preparing for their next major challenge, which is keeping hungry mouths full of food!

Water rates set to rise six per cent in 2012


Decade of hikes to fund water and sewer repairs EMC news – Ottawa residents can expect a six per cent hike on their water bills this year with the prospect of regular increases over the next decade, after city councillors approved a set of proposals on Feb. 22 to help fund major water and sewer repairs. The 2012 increase will be followed by seven per cent increases 2013 and 2014, six per cent hikes in 2015 and 2016 and five per cent increases each year after that until 2021. The 2012 hike will cost the average household approximately $37.82 per year, or roughly 75 cents extra per week. A staff report said the city needs to put $2.7 billion into repairing and reconstructing the city’s water and sewer system over the next decade, in order to maintain the current system and safeguard it against unexpected problems. However the report calls for a slightly lower investment of $2.1 billion over the next 10 years, with a higher level of capital investment concen-

Environment committee chairwoman Maria McRae

trated in the first four years. The projects would be funded jointly by the rate hikes, new debt and existing water and sewer reserves. ON THE MOVE Many water and sewer projects are being advanced by the city’s Ottawa On The Move program, which will rebuild hundreds of kilometres of roads between 2012 and 2015. While the roads are being fixed, the city plans to also rebuild the water and sewer infrastructure underneath. Environment committee chairwoman Maria McRae said this is a responsible approach. “No one wants a road ripped up twice,” she said. Rebuilding a road and then

ripping it up two years later to replace water and sewer is too disruptive, she added. McRae said replacing water mains is “not as sexy” as opening a brand new community centre or other city facility, but is paramount to the well-being of the city. Apart from providing safe, clean drinking water for residents, maintaining Ottawa’s $18 billion water and sewer system also protects businesses from disruptive breaks like the recent rupture on Elgin Street, and avoids water bans like the one Ottawa South residents endured last summer after Woodroffe’s water main burst. “I’m confident the rate we’ve put forward will deal with the situations that residents have told us to address,” she said. The city’s environment committee unanimously approved the rate hikes at its meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 21 and the long term financial plan was passed by council the following day.

Volunteer Dylan Patacairk said he enjoyed watching the kids learn to skate and to see some of them improve their skills. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was great to work with the kids. It was really fun to see them skate,â&#x20AC;? he said., As for Greg Patacairk, he hopes to run his hockey program next season and is now looking forward to another soccer season. He is also hoping more young people in the community will lend a hand by volunteering and helping others through the Dunrobin Community Association. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Dunrobin Community Centre invites all youth to join our team. We have something for everyone. We have the youths run our canteen, help out on Canada Day, clean up day in the spring and of course help running our sporting programs,â&#x20AC;? he said. Kim Gilmer has been running the youth program for the canteen over the winter and Patacairk said the plan is to run it during soccer season.

For Andy Cameron of Stittsville, having somewhere for his daughter to play hockey and enjoy herself has been a positive experience on so many levels. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The level of skill increase was phenomenal,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For some kids, who havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been involved in teams sports, to be able to do this is wonderful. It had been phenomenal to see them interact with one another.â&#x20AC;? While there are special needs sports programs available in the City of Ottawa through organizations like the Ottawa-Carleton Treatment Centre and hockey programs for those with physical or intellectual disabilities like the Capital City Condors, Cameron said some programs often have long waiting lists.

And the efforts of volunteers with the young hockey players were appreciated by the parents, who enjoyed watching their children thrive week after week. The fun was capped off with the handing out of medals last Wednesday evening at the community centre. While weather wreaked havoc with ice rink conditions and shortened the season, spirits were nonetheless high. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Regarding the volunteers, the young men working with William were amazing.

Residence to serve seniors From page 5

At least that’s the vision Carp residents Greg LeBlanc and Sallie Storey, the couple behind the revitalization of the old rectory, and construction of the restaurant – due to open early this June - and retirement residence. “Whatever we do, we want to do something we are proud of and the village is proud of,” Storey said on a tour of the construction site this week. “It’s about trying to elevate things a little bit.” The centerpiece of the $30-million project is the retirement residence, which is a full eight storeys from the Donald B. Munro side. It will boast 123 suites for seniors with varying degrees of independence, some for couples, along with a spa and salon, a bar with a pool table and lounge, exercise room, and a ‘display kitchen’ for cooking demonstrations and residents’ use. Audiologists, optometrist and other professionals will

have space; the primary dining room will be located near the main entrance on Donald B Munro. LeBlanc doesn’t have final dollar figures for the suites, but said it will match the demographics of the area. Business studies show Carp area residents, when property values and incomes are calculated, are at a compatible level with neighbouring Kanata. So prices should be competitive with similar retirement residences in the region. He is careful to say prices should reflect a range of potential tenants, but expects about 30 per cent of those at the residence will come from outside the area. “We are heartened by the interest that’s been reflected by potential residents,” LeBlanc said. “(Prices) will mirror the community, and it has to match the marketplace.” Please watch for stories on the retirement residence’s manager and Alice’s in future issues of the newspaper.

Sens’ Karlsson growing his game at both ends of ice By Rob Brodie Of all the audacious numbers that currently sit beside his name, it is far and away the least glamorous of the bunch. But that particular statistic — his rating in the plus-minus department, which stood at +15 as of last Friday — probably says the most about Erik Karlsson’s rapid ascent toward elite status among the National Hockey League’s top blueliners. And it is likely the one that brings the 21-yearold Ottawa Senators defenceman the greatest level of satisfaction. Never mind that it’s games like the two he had against the New York Islanders and Washington Capitals last week, when Karlsson produced a combined seven points, that earn the flashy Swede maximum airtime on the highlight reels. It’s his many offensive gifts that make fans shell out good money to watch him play. Karlsson will tell you he’s equally determined to show everyone involved with the game that he takes care of business in his own end of the ice as well. “That’s one of the things I want to prove to myself, at first,” said the Senators’ top pick (15th overall) in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft. “That I can play an all-around game and be (on the ice) in as many situations as possible, in any type of game and at any time in a game. I’ve come a long way since I came here and if I can keep improving, I’ll be even better defensively as we go along.” Karlsson, who’s listed at 6-0 and 180 pounds, isn’t likely to overwhelm any opponent with physical play. But his positional play has improved immensely and, with speed to burn, Karlsson can quickly atone for any mistakes he might make. “As a player, he’s grown,” said Senators head coach Paul MacLean. “You’re allowed to learn and you’re allowed to get better, and I think that’s what he’s done. His success is

While Erik Karlsson is the NHL’s highest-scoring defenceman by a wide margin, the Ottawa Senators blueliner is equally proud of the strides he’s made with his play in his own end of the ice (Photo by Eliot J. Schechter/NHLI via Getty Images). more an indication of his ability to grasp the game and to grasp it quickly. His skating ability, I think, is what separates him from a lot of people. He’s not a big man, but he defends with quickness and speed, and he’s learned how to do it real well.” Again, the numbers don’t lie — a year ago, the two-time NHL allstar game participant sported a minus-30 rating and was considered a huge liability in his own end. Not anymore. Only veteran Filip Kuba rates higher on the team in that category than Karlsson now — and it’s no coincidence the duo happen to be defence partners.

“The big thing is experience,” said Karlsson, who has benefited from the veteran wisdom supplied by Kuba, Chris Phillips and Sergei Gonchar. “The more games you play, the more accustomed to certain situations you get. We have a couple of older guys who have been around and play well defensively. That’s helping out, as well. “I’m getting help all the time with (his defensive play) and the coaches have been good in teaching me what to do and what not to do. Most of all, it comes with experience. I’ve improved my way of reading the game in certain situations. There

are going to be times when you mess up and as long as you work to undo it, I think it’s okay. I don’t consider myself a high-risk player anymore.” Captain Daniel Alfredsson, a fellow Swede and Karlsson’s biggest mentor since he first arrived in Ottawa four seasons ago, believes he’s a perfect fit for the style the Senators are playing under MacLean. And the team as a whole benefits from that match. “We play the skating style that fits his game,” said Alfredsson. “(MacLean) has done a really good job of allowing him to be offensive and guiding him defensively, too, without frustrating him. He’s been a good listener, too, and his plus-minus rating speaks for that. He’s done a great job improving in our end, getting pucks out and being in (the right) position. He’s been really good.” Of course, no discussion of Karlsson would be complete without bringing up those offensive numbers that continue to turn heads around the NHL. With 60 points (13-47) through 61 games, he’s on pace to record at least 80 for the season. That is miles past the franchise record of 63, set by Norm Maciver in the Senators’ expansion season of 199293, and far and away the top total by a defenceman in the league this season. All of which is starting to generate talk that Karlsson deserves consideration for the James Norris Trophy, awarded annually to the NHL’s top blueliner. That thought is almost overwhelming to him. “It’s something I’m going to have to think about after the season, when everything is over,” he said. “It’s a big honour and it’s something that every defenceman wants to (achieve). I’m flattered that people think that, but there’s also a lot of guys who have been working hard for a number

of years to win that nomination.” Among them is Nicklas Lidstrom, a seven-time Norris winner and every young Swedish blueliner’s ultimate idol. And what if Karlsson were to find himself on the same ballot as the Detroit Red Wings’ surefire Hall of Famer? “It would mean a lot to me,” he said. “It would make me feel good about what I’ve done and what the team has done for me as well. Something like that doesn’t happen every year. I know that and it doesn’t happen in (every defenceman’s) career,

either. I’ve just got to try to do my best and see where it takes me.” MacLean, for one, “can’t wait” to see how much further Karlsson can take his game in the years ahead. “His game has grown a lot, but I think there’s still areas and places where it can still grow,” he said. “But as far as I’m concerned, his growth potential is basically up to him ... his ability to comprehend the game and his dedication to the fitness aspect of the game, along with his continued growth as a player and seeing the ice and using the people around him.”

CHICAGO BLACKHAWKS Friday, March 2, 7 p.m., TSN After enduring a huge skid that dropped them to the middle of the Western Conference playoff pack, the Blackhawks seem to have regained their early season form in the last week or so. There is no shortage of offensive firepower in Chicago, with the likes of Marian Hossa, Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane and Patrick Sharp heading up a most formidable arsenal – and all of them veterans of the

Hawks’ Stanley Cup title team of two years ago. Duncan Keith and Brent Seabrook are the key anchors on the Chicago blue line. More is needed, however, in the way of consistent goaltending from Corey Crawford and Ray Emery.

Thursday, March 8, 7:30 p.m., Sportsnet East There’s a buzz of hockey excitement on Broadway, with the Rangers taking dead aim at top spot in the Eastern Conference – and the entire National Hockey League, for that matter. Everything in New York revolves around the stellar play of Henrik Lundqvist, one of the NHL’s elite goaltenders, who’s more than capably supported by Martin Biron. Up front, a healthy Marian Gaborik remains the top

sniper for the Blueshirts, with Brad Richards a major force in the middle. Captain Ryan Callahan and Derek Stepan, to name two, supply the necessary dose of grit, along with clutch goals. Dan Girardi is a shot -blocking force on the back end, with Michael del Zotto chipping in offensively.

A normal Renfrew County winter scares aunt and uncle EMC Lifestyle - It was unusual for Uncle Johnny to chance it out to Northcote from Ottawa before the last flake of snow was gone from the ground. But that winter had been mild, and according to Old Herman, who predicted everything from the weather, the end of the world, and what farm would be turned over to the county for taxes owed, it was going to be an early spring. Now, its doubtful Old Herman had any contact with Un-

cle Johnny in Ottawa. But when we saw him and Aunt Vanetta pull into the yard late in February, our long lane was no longer rutted with snow, and we could see the square of cement that held our

old pump. We didn’t need Old Herman to tell us spring was coming early, although Father insisted we would be in for a few last blasts of snow before we could say winter was over.

It was a Sunday. And when we got home from church, there was Uncle Johnny and Aunt Vanetta sitting in our kitchen like they owned the place. Of course, our doors were never locked back then. HUGS ALL AROUND

Aunt Vanetta was a dainty and tiny woman, who passed on her flair for fashion to her daughter Aunt Lil, and had on a hat over her white hair that was not much more than

a cluster of silk flowers and ribbons, but certainly was spring-like. Uncle Johnny had put another log into the Findlay Oval, and was sitting at the end of the table with a cigar as long as a table knife hanging from his mouth. Mother was thrilled to see them, and hugs were handed out freely. Two inches of cigar ashes fell onto the floor when Uncle Johnny stood up, and since it was a warm day to begin with, the house was fair jumping with the heat from the newly stoked kitchen stove, and he had peeled off his dress shirt, and his white long-sleeved

undershirt made him look like he was ready for bed. Everett was sent out to the henhouse so that Mother could add another chicken to the pot already simmering on the back of the stove, and the whole house took on an air of a party, which always happened when Uncle Johnny came from Ottawa. He was a tall man, thin as a rail, with not a hair on the top of his head, but there was a pure white fringe around his ears that made him look like someone had lathered on a good helping of whipped cream to frame his face.

Snow storm throws wrench in visitors’ plans From Page 16

Mother always said Uncle Johnny’s language was “salty” whatever that meant, but more than once Aunt Vanetta would wag a finger at him and say, “Johnny, little ears!” and that would hush him up, but only until he caught his breath again. Uncle Johnny worked for the City of Ottawa and drove an enormous steam roller which he parked in the side yard at 129 Lyon St. when not in use. “Got the day off tomorrow, and Van and I thought we’d come out and head back in the morning...not much snow anywhere, so the roads are good,” he said. He had the habit of slapping the table like he was killing a bug every time he made a comment, and I saw the salt and pepper shaker rise off the oilcloth when he brought down his hand, as big as a fry pan. The afternoon passed quickly with card games, off-colour jokes, and we ended polishing off the big supper piled on the table as if we were feeding a thrashing gang. Beds had to be shifted to make way for our overnight guests, and my sister Audrey and I ended up sleeping on the creton couch in the kitchen, foot to foot because it was too narrow to sleep side-by-side. We never complained. Having Uncle Johnny and Aunt Vanetta there for a night was a rare treat. Before he climbed the stairs to go to bed, Uncle Johnny opened the kitchen door wide and took deep breaths and looked out into the star filled sky. “ Yup, Spring is here,” and he slammed the door shut, just

about taking it off its hinges. Father could be heard muttering, “don’t count on it.” Well, the next morning, when I got off the couch, I looked out the window and there was Uncle Johnny’s car, looking like a huge blob of whipped cream. Through the night, we had the heaviest snow storm of the entire winter. In fact, Father had to use a shovel to get out the kitchen door to make a path to the cow byre. Well, let me tell you! When Uncle Johnny saw the snow, and his car completely covered, the oaths could be heard in Admaston. Aunt Vanetta tried to calm him down, but it was no use. His bald head was crimson, and he lit one cigar while one was still smoking away in a saucer on the kitchen table. It was soon obvious they were going nowhere! Father said he would try to break open the long lane, but since snow plows had yet to find their way out to the Northcote Side Road, Uncle Johnny would just have to wait it out until enough sleighs had gone up and down the road to make it passable. But it would take more than three or four feet of snow to keep us away from school. We would leave earlier than usual, plow our way out the lane and down Plaunt’s Side Road, and come home at the end of the day as if it was an every day

occurrence to wade through waist high snow banks. When we got home, Uncle Johnny was still sitting at the kitchen table in his underwear shirt, but Aunt Vanetta looked like a china doll, dressed and ready to head for home. All Uncle Johnny cold talk about was the two dollars he was out by missing a day’s work. And then the weather turned mild, a soft rain came down and by the next day, the snow was all but gone. Father had swept off Uncle Johnny’s car, shoveled a path to the gate, and after running the horses and sleighs up and down the lane several times, he said there should be no trouble reaching the Northcote Side Road. Our visitors were ready to take off before we left for school the next morning. As usual Mother had packed a couple boxes with vegetables from the cellar, jars of pickles and preserves, and two freshly killed and plucked chickens. Aunt Vanetta was grateful, but Uncle Johnny climbed into his car, muttering how anyone could live in such a godforsaken part of the world was more than he could imagine. “Just a normal Renfrew County winter,” Father said... and then he added, “and that’s why the old Model “T” is still up on blocks in the drive shed.”

This version of gingerbread will surprise and delight EMC Lifestyle - When you hear someone mention gingerbread, you probably think of gingerbread cookies or cake, maybe served with a cup of hot coffee. That thought will change once you’ve tried this week’s recipe. The gingerbread is a pancake that tastes very much like gingerbread cake, and coffee is one of the ingredients that goes into it. This is the kind of dish that you can serve for breakfast, brunch, lunch, or even as dessert after a meal. The pancakes can be served with any one of a variety of toppings. Maple syrup, sliced bananas, ice cream, frozen vanilla yogurt or whipped cream are all good. These pancakes cook best if they are made smaller than the usual pancakes. Although the batter may not look as if there’s not enough of it on the griddle, it will spread and rise as it cooks. Because the pancakes are small, they cook more quickly than the traditional ones.

Food ‘n Stuff PAT TREW

Gingerbread Pancakes 2 cups flour 1 tsp. cinnamon 1 tsp. ginger 1 tsp. nutmeg 3/4 tsp. baking powder 3/4 tsp. baking soda 1/4 tsp. salt 2 eggs, lightly beaten with a fork 1 1/3 cups buttermilk 1/3 cup molasses 1/3 cup cold or warm coffee 3 tbsp. vegetable oil In a large mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients and spices. In another bowl, stir the remaining ingredients together. Pour the liquid ingredients into the first bowl, and stir. Don’t mix vigorously. The batter will be a bit lumpy, but the lumps disappear during

cooking. Bring a lightly greased or non-stick frying pan or a griddle to medium heat. Measure 1/3 cup of batter for each pancake. As soon as you pour the batter on to the griddle, spread it into a circle about 4” across. Cook, on medium heat, until the bubbles that form on the surface of the pancakes start to break, and the pancake edges look slightly dry. This may take just 2-3 minutes. Flip the pancakes over, and cook the second side for about the same time. To keep the first batch warm while you cook the rest, transfer the cooked pancakes to a large pie plate, and cover them loosely with aluminum foil. Set this in a 300F oven. Makes 12-16 pancakes

ciety, the Dunrobin Women’s Institute and the former City of Kanata. She is perhaps best known for her work with the March Historical Society and Pinhey’s Point Foundation. She is a well-known speaker on the Pinhey family and is famous for dressing in period costume during visits to local elementary schools and during events at Pinhey’s Point. “Juanita has dedicated her life to improving our community and preserving its heritage,” said Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson. “With this naming, Juanita will be remembered and continue to be a role model for generations to come,” said

Wilkinson. In recognition of her exceptional accomplishments, she has been awarded the Senior Volunteer Service Award from the Government of Ontario (1996) and the Kanata Volunteer Award (1993 and 2001). This commemorative park naming was originally approved by the council of the former City of Kanata on Dec. 18, 2000; however the decision was never implemented. Since that time, the relevant park has become known as ‘Sandhill Park’. Mayor Watson and Coun. Wilkinson will officially honour Juanita Snelgrove at a ceremony later this year.


Upon her move to the area, she became active in local agriculture, including exhibiting at the Carp Fair, while raising her three children. As a long-time member of the Anglican Parish of March, she has served as a member of the Anglican Church Women (ACW) and been an active supporter of many charities such as Centre 454, which provides assistance to the homeless.

My View From Island View

Retirement Living So I was giving some thought to why it is that some people come to live with us at Island View. I hadn’t really given it much thought until I was asked to speak to an enthusiastic group of great people about the subject a few weeks ago. From my experience there are four main reasons people choose retirement living. They want to be closer to their families. Perhaps their life has taken them far away from the people they love most. They decide they want to see their grandchildren grow up and they want to be a significant part of their lives as well as have the opportunity to assist their own children along the way. Some other folks come for the completely opposite reason. They don’t want to be a burden on their families. They watch silently as their own children struggle to raise their family. They see their own health declining and decide that it’s in their best interest to live in a community where they can maintain their independence and still have access to certain types of care that can help them do this. They don’t want to rely on their own children when they know they are so busy with their own lives. Others choose to come because they simply want some peace of mind about their health and well being. They want to be assured that if a health crisis was to arise, there would be someone available any time of the day to come to their

rescue. In this location, there are so many people living alone in remote areas and they no longer feel as safe as they used to in their own homes. I think the most important reason why people come to the decision to move is because something has happened. They have fallen or had a scare that leads them to feel less secure. Who are some of these people at Island View and what are their stories? We have a beautiful couple that has come for one simple reason; they want their last years together to be filled with fun and joy. They don’t want to worry about chores and maintaining a home. Another couple has come because one of them is in failing health and the other wants the security of knowing someone will always be available in the event of an emergency. One lovely woman wants to fiercely maintain her independence. For her, that means being able to make the decision to move into a retirement community on her own. She wouldn’t hear of her family making that decision for her. Another gentleman knows that one more winter alone in his big home in the country would cause his loneliness to be unbearable.

How do people know when the time is right to make this decision? Some have shared with me that they crave the social interaction with others that is desperately missing in their lives. Others have said the chores of day to day living have just become too much and now they just want to rest and enjoy the later years of their lives. Some are lonely and others just know their quality of life will be so much better in a community with other folks rather than on their own. If you are considering retirement living, try not to leave the decision until a crisis happens. I recommend getting out there and having a look. The personality of each community differs from home to home. Not every retirement home will be a fit for you. I believe it’s a feeling that you will have in your gut that will tell you when you have made the right choice.

EMC News - City of Ottawa is announcing the recognition of resident Juanita Snelgrove through the naming of a Kanata park in her honour. “On behalf of the City of Ottawa, it brings me great pleasure to announce the creation of Juanita Snelgrove Park,” said Mayor Jim Watson. “Juanita’s commitment to her community is well-known in Kanata and West Carleton – this tribute is our thank you for a lifetime of service.” Juanita Snelgrove, 95, is a descendant of the historic Pinhey family and a long-time community volunteer and resident of Carp and Dunrobin. Born in England, Juanita immigrated to Canada in 1920, crossing the Atlantic Ocean by ship and first settling near Montreal. She graduated from McGill University in 1939, at a time when very few women pursued post-secondary education, before moving to a farm near the Village of Carp in 1950.

Calabogie ski racers continue to shine during competitions EMC Sports - With the race season having passed the halfway mark, Calabogie’s racers continue to let their skills on the ski hill shine. The K1 racers skied a Slalom Mix at Edelweiss, Quebec, on Feb. 19. The boys rocked their division with silver and bronze medals awarded to Sammy and Alex Duff (Pembroke). Travis Reid (Kingston) was just 44 hundredths of a second shy of the top 10, finishing 11th. Fynn Guckes (Calabogie) completed both runs to finish a respectable 25th place. The girls pulled off some nice turning to earn solid results. Lauren Campbell-Brunke (Renfrew) carved out 16th place, with Jessica Earle (Greely) finishing 27th, Alexandra Kerr (Kemptville) right behind in 28th, Lauren Ferguson (Carp) in 30th, Jenna Wissing (Kanata) in 34th, and Emma Schreider (Kingston) in 36th. Sophia Tan (Kanata) also raced. The K2 and Junior racers participated in a Super G Speed Camp at Mont St. Ma-

Super G is similar to GS, in that racers must navigate around the gates, but the gates are further apart and racers reach greater speeds. The Speed Camp was capped off with the Art Tommy Memorial Race on Feb. 19. In the girls’ division, Aylen Ferguson (Carp) sped to 25th place, with Mikayla Reid

(Kingston) nipping in behind at 35th, and Sarah Reid (Brockville) attaining 44th. Travis Tait (Kingston), Nicholas Dowd (Gananoque), and Christopher Pepin (Kinburn) raced in the boys’ division. Travis came in 28th, while Nicholas flew to a second place finish in his first run, but a disqualification in the second run knocked him off the podium.

Fifth community ice fishing derby March 4 By THERESA FRITZ

On a beautiful sunny day Feb. 26, the I2 racers competed in their last regular-season race at Vorlage, Quebec. Battling a steep, icy slalom course, the boys skied hard with admirable results. Jack Alexander (Carp) turned on the heat to earn himself a fourth place ribbon. Sean Swayze (Braeside) was comfortably inside the top 10 with a seventh place finish, while Tyler Lefebvre (Calabogie) sped to 15th position. Connor Allen (Manotick) was 24th, Carson Lefebvre (Calabogie) 37th, and Evan Sharma (Kingston) 42nd. Sam Alexander (Carp), Zach Wroe (Burnstown), Wesley Matthews (Calabogie), and Alex Wroe (Burnstown) all laid down one good run but difficulties on the other knocked them out of the standings. Next up are provincials at Blue Mountain in Collingwood for the K1s and K2s in early March. The racers are also gearing up for Championship Races in each of the divisions, which will cap off

EMC Sports – Spring may be around the corner but there is still plenty of winter left for ice fishing enthusiasts to enjoy. Mike and Pete’s 5th annual ice fishing derby takes place Sunday, March 4. The derby runs from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Constance Bay/Horseshoe Bay off Greenland Road. “It is the biggest derby as far as people go in the Ottawa River,” said organizer Mike Fines. He said that recent warm temperatures are of no concern. “The last two years have been milder than this year. There is more than two feet of ice now. We are not losing a whole lot of ice,” Fines said.

He added fishing takes place “very close to shore.” The derby costs $15 per person and the cost includes lunch featuring hot dogs, hamburgers, salads, etc. As well, there will be individuals on site with augers to cut holes in the ice for participants. “It’s a real family event,” Fines said, adding anyone interested in coming out and watching can enjoy lunch for only $5. Dunrobin Village Meats and Grocery is a major supporter of the event. Registration will take place in a shack at the entry point to the ice. Fines said participants can enter off Bayview Road or off Greenland Road. For more information, call 613-832-3462.


Jason Baker of Fitzroy Harbour holds up the 2.2-pound pike that won him the top prize of $120 in last Saturday’s Fitzroy Harbour ice fishing derby on the Ottawa River. Despite blustery conditions, 45 people registered for the event. Joining Baker is his fishing buddy Mitchell Smith.

EMC Sports - On Feb. 15 three members of the Arnprior District High School (ADHS) wrestling team competed at EOSSAA in Kingston. John Dolan and Jeff Clouthier decided not to compete in this competition. Nathan Andrews was the first to wrestle and came out strong and pinned his opponent from Kingston. His next match was a tough one as his competitor has been wrestling intensely for the past few years while he has been committed to Football. Andrews lost this match after putting up a good fight. At this point he had to win his next two matches to finish in third in order to have the possibility of challenging for second place. The ruling in EOSSAA is that if you finish in third and had not wrestled the person who finished in second then you can challenge for the position because only the top two in each weight class head to OFSAA. Andrews went out and wrestled hard and won his next two matches but the $1499 last Reg. match reinjured his ankle so he decided not to challenge for second. He finished a very Salestrong third. Rebecca Dolan was next up against a girl from Kingston. These two girls had met several times this season and always with the same result of the Kingston wrestler winning. Dolan lost the first round by a point so had to wrestle a second round and shortly into

Local MPP Jack MacLaren introduces bill to fix OSPCA


bills. ” If passed, Bill 37 will remove all OSPCA inspection and enforcement power, as well as enforcement staff. This will remove the ability of the OSPCA to write orders, award fines, enter onto private property, seize animals and/or invoice animal owners for the care of seized animals. The OSPCA will be an animal shelter only, and will maintain its charitable status. On March 29, Bill 37 will

be debated and then voted on in the Legislature. Earlier in the day there will be a rally on the front steps of Queen’s Park to support the bill. Please visit for more details on the bill and to read and listen to real stories of the abuse(s) from the OSPCA of innocent people at the hands of the OSPCA. People are encouraged to share their stories as well.

EMC News – On Feb. 23, Carleton-Mississippi Mills MPP Jack MacLaren introduced Bill 37 into the Ontario Legislature. The purpose of which is to fix the Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (OSPCA). The issue with the OSPCA is the conflict of interest entrenched in the OSPCA Act. The OSPCA is a charity that must fundraise to pay for its operation, but its enforcement staff has police powers with the ability to write orders, award fines, seize animals, and invoice animal owners for animal care. All the fines and invoices collected by OSPCA enforcement officers go directly to the OSPCA. This is the OSPCA’s main method of fundraising, and creates a conflict of interest. “The OSPCA is a broken, out of control organization that has lost sight of its mandate to ensure the humane treatment of animals,” said MacLaren. “OSPCA enforcement officers abuse their power and authority in the interest of fundraising. They are poorly trained, at arms length from government, and are unaccountable. They hurt animal owners with wrongful criminal charges, unwarranted animal seizures, and absurdly high life-ruining

Other than the letter, which was retained as evidence, the boy’s expression of love went up in smoke after it was turned over to police for destruction. GOOGLE OVER DEER
