Boil water advisory lifted for communal well users Sherry Haaima and Theresa Fritz
EMC news â€“ The hot and dry summer got a lot drier for some people in Carp this week and it took several days for affected residents to have water they could use. The cityâ€™s health department had issued a precautionary boil water advisory until further notice for water users serviced by the Carp communal well system but that advisory was officially lifted Wednesday morning. â€œWater from the Carp communal well water system is now safe to drink. Ottawa Public Health has lifted the boil water advisory and residents can now resume regular water usage,â€? read a public
health news release. â€œThe pressure in the Carp village communal well system which supplies water to approximately 1,800 residents has been fully restored and water sample results indicate the water is safe for all consumption purposes.â€? Residents had been left without water after a mechanical failure Sunday afternoon at a pump station that occurred as firefighters worked to put out a brush fire in Carp between Hidden Lake Crescent and Holland Hill Road. Water users in the affected area were being asked to bring their water to a rolling boil for at least one minute before using it for consumption purpos-
es, including drinking, making juice, ice and infant formula, as well as for food preparation, according to a health department press release. â€œIf you are unable to boil water, you should consume only bottled water,â€? the release stated, adding more information on how to boil water safely can be found at ottawa.ca â€œWeâ€™re hoping we can go through a partial return to service possibly tomorrow (Tuesday), with full return to service possibly Wednesday,â€? said Dixon Weir, general manager of environmental services for the city during a press conference Monday. See WATER, page 3
EMC news â€“ Carp residents got some good news Monday afternoon with official word the brush fire that cut down 5.5 hectares of deciduous trees was declared under control and no longer active. The declaration came around 3:40 p.m., easing concerns the fire would continue to have hot spots for days, similar to conditions experienced at the scene of the Moodie Drive brush â€œCrews will however, continue to monitor the area over the next few days,â€? said Ottawa Fire Services public information officer Marc Messier. Firefighters were called to Carp around 12:36 p.m. Sunday, July 22 with reports of smoke coming from an area near the Hidden Lakes subdivision. Upon arrival, crews found a brush fire in the forest at the end of Holland Hill Road, off Carp Road, just north of the Carp Agricultural Society Fairgrounds. Approximately 95 firefighters were on scene of the blaze as well the Ottawa Paramedic Service with their rehab bus and a few ambulances for support. Ottawa Police established scene control and closed Carp Road between Craigâ€™s Side Road and Juanita Street. A helicopter was brought to spot the fire from the air and to drop water on it and firefighters also made use of ATVs to access to the brush area. The helicopter continued with water drops until 4 p.m. Weather conditions Sunday afternoon were hot and dry with a bit of a breeze, so firefighters kept close watch on nearby residences for fear the fire might spread.

“The homes in the Hidden Lakes subdivision are about half a kilometre from the fire front. Fire apparatus was put in place as a precaution but have not been pulled out of the subdivision as there is no
threat to the homes. No evacuations were required,” Messier said in a news release during the height of the blaze. Portions of Carp Road were closed to general traffic for several hours. The fire was successfully R0011514875

On top of the fire stress, many Carp residents experienced a loss of water pressure during the fire. Initially believed to have been linked to fire fighting efforts, the loss of water was attributed to mechanical failure at a pump station in Carp at the same time

A press conference was held at the Carp Fairgrounds Monday morning to update residents on the water situation as well as provide information on the fire. “The fire is contained, not necessarily under control and quite frankly just like the Moodie brush fire it won’t be completely out until we get a significant rain,” said Ottawa

Water was provided to affected residents by the city Public health inspectors worked in the community with restaurants, businesses and day care facilities, said Lewis, to ensure public safety. There were also public heath nurses working in the community with the vulnerable, including families and seniors, she said, to ensure no public health issues arise. Lewis said it is quite likely the system will move to a boil water advisory status before being deemed completely safe. Carp resident Isabel Dennis said the incident certainly posed a challenge. With two small children at home and no water for drinking or bathing, the family was waiting to hear the latest update before deciding whether to stay with friends in Greely or wait out the situation. Dennis said she is satisﬁed with the ﬂow of information from the City of Ottawa, though she did have to open a twitter account after discovering the most recent information seemed to be posted there ﬁrst. “I’m not too upset,” said Dennis. “Last night we were able to come in here to the fairgrounds and ofﬁcials were here and we could ask questions.” Dennis was at the Carp Fairgrounds to pick up a case of bottled water, which was being provided by the city. A
second station was available where residents could ﬁll up jugs with water. “These things happen and you just have to deal with it,” said Dennis. Fireﬁghting capabilities were not compromised, said Ottawa Fire Services Chief John deHooge. “I can assure all the residents that they are extremely well protected. Fire services has a contingency plan that ensures that adequate human resources and water tanker resources are dispatched if we get a call for a ﬁre in the affected area,” he said. The deparment’s superior tanker shuttle, often used in the rural areas, has the ability to provide a continuous, uninterrupted water supply, much like a ﬁre hydrant would, said de Hooge. The tanker is ﬁlled at the city’s designated ﬁll sites. “In all of the rural areas, we have designated ﬁll sites. Ponds or reservoirs and those water supplies have not been affected,” said de Hooge. MECHANICAL FAILURE The problem was a mechanical failure that occurred in the pumping station, Weir explained. “There was no shortage of water it was the piping system we need to distribute it,” he said.
Ottawa Fire Chief John deHooge spoke to a throng of media at the Carp Fairgorunds Monday morning. The system was installed in 1995, he said, and it’s not clear at the moment exactly why the pump failed. The failure caused pipes to come apart and the water that gushed out ﬂooded the basement of the pumping station, he explained, damaging motors and circuitry. The only connection with the ﬁre service was that ﬁreﬁghters were using the system as intended and the pump failed, said Weir. “The Fire service in no way caused it,” he said. To reports that residents have been left in the dark and had trouble ﬁnding out what
was going on, Weir said word of the failure originally came in at 2:04 p.m. Sunday and staff have been on-scene since 2:40 p.m. “The city has been fully en-
gaged in responding,” he said. City and health ofﬁcials will test water samples when the well system is pressurized and returns to normal.

Residents affected by the advisory were at ﬁrst told not to drink any water - even if boiled - until the city provided further notice. The city distributed bottled water at the Carp Fairgrounds only to those residents affected. At a press conference Monday morning at the fairgrounds, Weir explained city ofﬁcials and staff had been on-scene since yesterday afternoon to repair the broken pump and restore the water system. “We are in the process of systematically reﬁlling the drinking water system. It is important we go through this in a systematic fashion to ensure we ﬁll the system properly and we don’t bring on other problems,” said Weir. “It is a step-by-step process and we’re following it very closely.” He stressed the importance of following the do-not-use advisory. “The entire recommissioning will be greatly accelerated if residents continue to observe the do not use system,” he said. Dr. Rosamund Lewis, Associate Medical Ofﬁcer of Health, explained that testing continued to be done in conjunction with the environmental services department. “Our main message is not to use the water for now - do not drink it, do not use it for now,” she said.

West Carleton residents among those receiving Queen’s Diamond Jubilee medals from MP Theresa Fritz
EMC news – Sixteen Ottawa area residents were presented with Queen’s Diamond Jubilee medals during a ceremony last Thursday evening hosted by Carleton-Mississippi Mills MP and Minister of State and Chief Government Whip Gordon’ O’Connor. Some 60,000 Diamond Jubilee medals - to match the 60 years of service of Her Majesty - were provided to Members of Parliament (MP) and Members of Provincial Parliament (MPP) to hand out to citizens across Canada. The achievements of younger Canadians who are actively contributing to the future is also a focus of the program. “Since 1952, Her Majesty has been steadfast in exemplifying the true meaning of public service. The Diamond Jubilee reminds us of Her Majesty’s service to Canada and the central role of the Crown throughout the decades in our ongoing evolution as a country,” said O’Connor. “I encourage all Canadians to get involved in celebrating our sense of belonging to the
greater Commonwealth family and expressing our pride in what we have accomplished as Canadians over the past 60 years.” As a federal cabinet minister, O’Connor received 50 medals to hand out. While the first 16 recipients do not all necessarily hail from his constituency, the 34 other recipients will either live in Carleton-Mississippi Mills or have business interests there. Those medals will be handed out at a separate ceremony in September, according to Andrea Walasek, O’Connor’s parliamentary communications officer. Of the 16 individuals honoured last week, two come from West Carleton. They are Caroline Day of Woodlawn and Dr. Lyall Higginson of Carp. Day’s volunteer service began when she was a teenager, teaching young children and later teens, young women and then women, when a need “She has always been passionate about her community and her country and volunteers regularly for non-profit groups in her community,”

Developer Vince Campanale is planning to build 324 homes on 65 acres, which would add about 800 more residents to the town of some 8,100 people. Like Campanale Homes’ Riverwood Estates subdivision south of Madawaska Boulevard, the new neighbourhood will be developed in three phases, and include a variety of home and land styles. “We brought over a few popular designs from here,” Campanale said from his ofﬁce in Riverwood, prior to a tour of the new location. “We added quite a few new models, including different semis and towns.” Campanale Homes has

given almost $2.6 million in development charges to the town and county for the Callahan project. A conservative estimate of $3,000 a year in property taxes will mean another $972,000 annually goes to local governments when completed. Along with semidetached and townhomes, expect to see single and attached bungalows; overall the homes will be smaller than in the awardwinning Riverwood. The first phase entrance will be an extension to Edey Street. It will include a slope on either side of a dry pond (a run-off precaution in the event of a major rainstorm) behind eastside homes. Water from the dry pond would be directed to nearby Jed Creek. The 93 homes in this phase will include bungalows and two-storeys as “inventory” – meaning they’ll be built and ready for sale, but offer few opportunities for buyers to customize. “People can always tinker,” Campanale said. “We’re re-
ally excited because we’ll be bringing out some that sold quickly (in Riverwood).” STREET NAMES
Arnprior is unique in that the last town council passed a bylaw saying all new streets must be named after war veterans. The three internal streets in phase one will be called Tom Gavinski Street, Gordon Ferguson Place and Mona McBride Drive. The latter ends in a culde-sac, which caused some consternation with the last council. Cul-de-sacs are more costly for municipalities to maintain, but Arnprior bought equipment a few years ago to lessen the burden. All phase one services such as streetlights, water and sewage, and roads will be finished in the next two to three months, Campanale said, adding that he expects to have 17 homes built by the end of November. Homes backing onto the 100-foot wide dry pond will
have walk-out basements, a feature especially popular to Riverwood homes backing onto the Madawaska River. Homes at the cul-de-sac will have pie-shaped lots of various sizes backing onto Jed Creek. Five homes will back onto Ida Street, between its cul-desac and existing homes. A priority list is in place for those who show a no-obligation interest. Already 19 names are on it. Prices are better in subdivisions where construction is still underway; in some instances homeowners can save anywhere from $15,000 to $20,000 for the inconvenience. Phase one should be substantially completed by next July. Phases two and three will include more names of local veterans: Leonard Spinks Way; Conway Tearle Street; Bert Tourangeau Street, Leo Moskes Street an and extension of Tom Gavinski Street.

EMC news – West Carleton-March Coun. El-Chantiry is pleased to announce that he will serve as Honourary Co-Chair for the Constance and Buckham’s Bay Community Association’s (CBBCA) Project Sandhills. The project is a partnership between the City of Ottawa’s Parks, Recreation & Cultural Services Department, the Ottawa Library Board, CBBCA and Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre. The first phase of the $2,000,000 project will address the infrastructure required to fulfill many of the community’s top priorities through a 4,500 square foot addition to the Constance Bay Community Centre. As honourary co-chair, ElChantiry will be leading the community’s $733,000 contribution to the project. To meet the project’s aggressive timeline (construction to begin in 2013) the community has only 12 months to raise $633,000. For the councillor, former proprietor of Constance Bay’s Lighthouse Restaurant and a past president of the CBBCA, the decision to be Co-Chair of Project Sandhills was an easy one to make. “The Community Association presented a compelling and comprehensive 35 page

City staff reviewed it thoroughly and came back and said, ‘Eli, we need to move on this project’,” ElChantiry stated. “The library is a key part of this project. The Constance Bay branch has had double- digit growth for many years now and it’s too small and too isolated. The addition will include a new library which will be three times larger than the current facility. The community also demonstrated an urgent need for additional space to deliver programming for children,
teens and seniors. When you combine the need, the partnership and the objective, how could I not get involved?” He also noted everyone is working together on this important community project. “I have to say that from my perspective Project Sandhills is already a success. The community came together and is doing its part. City staff responded favourably and both sides are working together in ways that make me very proud,” El-Chantiry concluded.

The paved path leading to A.J. Charbonneau school will be maintained, which was a concern for current residents. Cranston Street will be another entrance. But the main entrance will be along Baskin Drive, near the school. Phase two should be done in about four years, and the entire project should be complete in about 10. Campanale

The breach could affect an “unprecedented” number of Canadians: 2.4 million people, according to Ontario’s information and privacy commissioner. “Elections Ontario has specific policies and processes in place regarding the management and care of personal information that were not followed,” chief electoral officer Greg Essensa said in the statement. “Therefore I cannot confirm the security of the information. For that reason, I am notifying Ontarians.” Essensa said there is no evidence the information has been improperly accessed, which would require Elections Ontario’s proprietary software or special commercial software. Still, Elections Ontario is recommending that voters in those ridings monitor and verify their transaction statements from governments, financial institutions and business to look for suspicious activity. Essensa said Elections Ontario is taking the security breach very seriously and has undertaken a rigorous search and an internal investigation. An external investigation by a forensic security specialist firm is also underway and the provinces Information and Privacy Commissioner is also investigating.

EMC news - Mississippi Valley Conservation (MVC) is continuing the Level II Low Water Condition based on the streamflow conditions across the watershed. This statement is being issued pursuant to this morning’s meeting of the Mississippi Valley Water Response Team (MVWRT) and is to confirm that the Mississippi River watershed is still in a Level II Low Water Condition. This is an update on the previous declaration of Level II conditions of July 17. Recent rainfall was sporadic and insufficient to relieve the current low water conditions. Under a Level II Low Water Condition, watershed residents, businesses and industries throughout the Mississippi Valley are asked to reduce their water use by 20 per cent.

Shootings cause for concern, not revolution
recent spike in the number of gangrelated shootings in Toronto and Ottawa has alarmed both residents and the police forces in those cities. Toronto police are investigating the third shooting death in that city over a span of three days, the city’s 30th homicide in 2012. The same day he called Toronto “the safest city in the world,” Toronto Mayor Rob declared war on gang-related
crime. The mayor called for a meeting with Premier Dalton McGuinty to request support for a crackdown on gang violence. Meanwhile, in Ottawa, the police issued a report last month naming the city one of the safest municipalities in Canada. But police have also expressed alarm over the number of shootings this year. There have been 27 shootings in Ottawa so far this
year, four more than all of 2011. More than half of this year’s shootings are gang-related, said Ottawa police, including one last week during a car chase at Fisher Avenue near Baseline Road. The Ottawa police guns and gangs unit has investigated four more shootings than it has compared to all of last year. But this isn’t a citywide epidemic – the gang-related shootings are occurring in
specific neighbourhoods, such as South Keys, and some of the other older suburbs in south Ottawa. Despite the spike in the number of shootings in Ottawa, we don’t see the need for a knee-jerk reaction, as seems to be suggested by Mayor Ford. The solution seems simple: reallocate more resources to the city’s trouble spots. This could mean beefing up proactive policing efforts in Ottawa neighbourhoods hit
with gang-related violence or assigning more officers to the guns and gangs unit patrolling those areas. Ottawa’s crime statistics don’t call for a drastic change. This is a geographicallyspecific problem requiring a localized solution. The spike in shootings does not demand a kneejerk reaction that is more political than anything else. A similar spike in the police budget is unlikely. Keep in mind the provin-
cial government is desperately trying to trim its budget to help reduce Ontario’s deficit. Similarly, Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson has set a 2.5 per cent cap on the municipality’s annual budget – including the police force. Next year’s draft police budget calls for a 5.6 per cent increase, which will have to be trimmed by $6 million to meet the budget cap. There isn’t much room either in the province or the municipality to go on a hiring spree. It’s up to our police chief to figure out how to best allocate the limited resources he has.
It isn’t a race – or is it? sion to decide that you are not playing. But it is a relief in a way. Take the border, for example. There you are, sitting in four or five or seven lanes of traffic for half an hour or maybe even more. The guy in front just moved one lane left, making an obstacle of himself while doing so. You stay where you are, partly because you don’t want to be that guy and partly because you may not have the nerve to do what he did. And you remind yourself it isn’t a competition. Because what does it matter if he’s sailing freely along the 401 two minutes before you are? But still, you watch him, in his huge ugly black SUV. Sometimes your line moves and you seem to be catching up with him. But then his line moves and moves again and you are losing sight of him, even though it isn’t a competition. Coming the other way, there are those people sneaking along on the side where it didn’t look like there even was a line. Are they jumping the queue or just part of the NEXUS line? It takes coolness, a strong-will and just a bit of inertia to stay where you are. Eventually, as you need to remind yourself, you get through and all is forgotten, even your nagging little wish that he’ll have his car searched by the customs people or maybe get a flat tire down the road. (As an aside, if you’re coming back this way, you discover that the drivers are faster and crazier up here than down there, a reversal of the national stereotypes.) Somehow one of our basic needs is to feel that we are smarter than the other guy. That either means that we applaud ourselves for getting ahead in the line or we pity the guy who gets ahead in the line because he must have a miserable life if he has to get his fun getting ahead of us. In the end, we both get there. But when we do, one of us keeps pushing the elevator button when it doesn’t arrive right away and the other just waits. The elevator gets there too.
CHARLES GORDON Funny Town
y now, having lived a bit, you know that the world is divided into two kinds of people. There are those who stay in the lane they are in and those who keep jumping to what they hope is a faster one. This summer, you are likely to find out which you are, and how to deal with the other kind. The Queensway, of course, is a classic testing ground. Driving west or east from downtown at rush hour, you are continually faced with choices. Is the left-hand lane really a passing lane, or will it just be clogged with people who hope it is? The right-hand will end eventually. Will you stay on it until the bitter end and then barge into traffic, or will you move over earlier? The lane beside you seems to be moving a bit better. Will you jump over into it, or just stay where you are and hope for the best? It depends on what type you are, and in some ways, you probably don’t have as much choice as you thought you had. Your genes might predetermine what you do. Or the way you were taught to drive by your mother or father. Those of us who make one choice and stick to it require a mature outlook, because it means we have to accept the fact that other people, the lane-changers, might get there before us and we have to keep the difficult belief that it doesn’t matter if they do. In other words, it isn’t a competition. Raised in a society where competition dominates our economic life and professional sports permeate our society, it is a tough deci-

One daughterâ€™s wedding down, four more to go EMC lifestyle - Anastasiaâ€™s wedding was magical, from beginning to end. I expected no less from a girl who always does things her way, which is a bit different from everyone else. Anastasia and Andrew donâ€™t watch TV; they donâ€™t read much either. They arenâ€™t on Facebook and she just learned to text last week. They hunt, they train their hunting dogs, they work in the bush and they do a lot of canoeing and camping. He is a carpenter and she is a Montessori teacher. Annie spent much of her spare time in the past months creating picture collages, place settings, signage, tissue flowers and other decorations in preparation for her wedding day. I hadnâ€™t seen the wedding site before the rehearsal. I knew it was in a meadow but I had no idea you had to go through a pasture, a forest, a
cornfield and another forest to get there. The couple had spent many weekends this spring cutting trees, clearing a round in the middle of the pasture and stacking wood into a wall to be used as a photo backdrop. On the wedding day, guests were transferred by 4x4 truck, ATV, and a lovely wagon with padded seats, pulled behind an antique tractor. Lemonade and other cold drinks were served under a white tent, and tree stumps with pillows were provided for seating. The groom was nervous, and the dogs were restless, as everyone waited for the bride. Finally we heard something. We heard the bridal party before we saw them, honking their horn and screaming like banshees. Finally they entered the meadow, in a cloud of dust. The bride was at the wheel of her pickup and her maids
DIANA FISHER Accidental Farmwife were in the truck bed, waving their bouquets and hollerinâ€™ â€œyee-haw!â€? The girls climbed down out of the truck, and the bride pulled the veil down to cover her face. I turned the music on: Spanish guitar and flamenco, â€œBoy with a Coinâ€?. Not your usual processional music for a wedding. Anastasia has a Latin streak in her blood. As she walked the aisle, she exchanged nervous smiles with her groom. The dogs, two Labrador Retrievers, had the rings on their collars. As soon as the officiator asked,
â€œwho has the rings?â€? the pups stepped forward. It was a short and sweet ceremony, then off to the wood wall for photographs. After several groupings for family photos in the 30+ degree heat, we started ferrying people back to civilization, where they took their cars to Burritts Rapids Community Hall for the potluck reception. The bride and groom went to the waterâ€™s edge for more photographs. What a beautiful little village for a wedding. Every house on the main street looks like it belongs on a postcard.
We packed close to 100 people into that hall, and tested their air conditioning. Anastasia wanted a small venue; she doesnâ€™t do well in crowds. In the Moment Event and Party Planning provided servers from Catered Affairs. Those women were amazing. It ainâ€™t easy coordinating a buffet for one hundred. After the dinner we did speeches, then my 97-yearold grandma Vicky got up and sang the new couple a wedding song in French. Then the bridal party performed for the crowd. The groom sat in a chair while the girls circled him and the bride danced in front of him. It was all choreographed and performed to the song â€œDown in Mexicoâ€? from one of those Tarantino movies they love. I think he liked it. I remember thinking, those dimples are going to ache by morning.
The crowd boot scooted and boogied til about midnight, then they finally agreed to call it a day. It took us approximately 6 hours to set up and 6 hours to tear down and clean up the hall. I keep saying, â€œnext time, we just pay someone to do this...â€? but like me, Anastasia prefers to do it herself. The happy couple is now on their way to P.E.I. via New Brunswick. I hope they have a fabulous time. The bride has never seen the ocean. The â€œchildrenâ€?, Rupert and Baretta, are happily ensconced at Grandma Leesonâ€™s house. The bride cried when she dropped them off this morning. She had wanted to take her pups along on the honeymoon, but we managed to talk her out of it, to the groomâ€™s great relief. One daughter down, four to go!
Masquerade parties in your garden are on now EMC lifestyle â€“ This summer the scorching sun has rendered lawns brown and caused many plants to bow in submission. But some wildflowers have survived and in damp meadows, pink Joe-pye Weed and white Boneset are currently alive with butterflies. Recently I watched dozens of orange Silver-bordered, Atlantis, and Aphrodite fritillaries compete with American Ladies and Red Admirals for the nectar of those flowers. Dozens of wasps and flies joined them. In drier habitats, a few wildflowers are also blooming. Groups of tenacious Ox-eye Daisy, Yarrow, Queen Anneâ€™s Lace, and Viperâ€™s Bugloss currently decorate open fields and untended gardens. Interestingly, those plants are non-native. While some may have escaped from the gardens of early settlers, most arrived as seeds carried in
Michael Runtz Natureâ€™s Way soil used as ballast on sailing ships. When the ships neared the shore, the dirt, which came from the sailorsâ€™ homeland, was unceremoniously dumped to lighten the ships, allowing them to float into shallower water. Some seeds survived and germinated, and over the years their descendants eventually spread into our region. Wildflowers also house many predators. Crab Spiders
and Ambush Bugs sit with lethal patience, waiting for prey to move within reach. Currently, the latter are especially common on Queen Anneâ€™s Lace and Yarrow, often sitting near the centre of the flower. Ambush Bugs are odd creatures with oversized raptorial arms and bulging eyes. Their flat backs are black and yellow, a pattern that looks like dead plant material, making them hard to see unless they move. They have stabbing mouthparts that deliver a knockout mixture of poison and digestive enzymes into whatever prey their mantislike arms grab. Often you find mating pairs with the larger female enjoying a meal while the male is enjoying her. Recently I was photographing an Ambush Bug when I noticed a bit of motion on the Yarrow beside it. I could only see a bit of dead material, but when I tried to gently lift it,
it refused to yield. Then it moved again. I realized it was not debris but a live creature! Upon closer examination, I could discern it was a small brown caterpillar that bore peculiar flattened projections on its upper surface. These housed little chunks of Yarrow petals. The creature was a Wavylined Emerald, better known as a Camouflaged Looper. Loopers are moth caterpil-

In his lavishly illustrated Caterpillars of Eastern North America (an essential book for all caterpillar enthusiasts), David Wagner refers to this species as â€œa Mardi Gras caterpillar that is out of costume only after a molt.â€?

Honey was found abandoned in May, it was obvious from her condition that she had been neglected for a very long time. She was emaciated with many wounds, but after much TLC she is now happy and healthy and ready to begin a new chapter in her life. Honey is a Shepherd/ Dane mix, approx. 3 years old, she is an energetic dog with lots of energy to burn. She is very active and would make an excellent running or jogging partner. Honey is a large girl, with basic knowledge of obedience but would beneďŹ t from more training, she is housebroken and crate trained. She is good with some dogs if properly introduced, but no cats or children under 13 years. Honey deserves to ďŹ nd a wonderful forever home where she can happily live the rest of her life.

Country festival honouring Hoedown passes Jessica Cunha email@example.com
EMC news - A country music festival in Bowmanville, Ont., is offering Capital Hoedown ticket holders a chance to use their passes for free. The Boots and Hearts Music festival is honouring general admission tickets purchased for the Ottawa concert, which was officially cancelled on June 9. “It’s disappointing to invest time and money in anticipation of an exciting weekend of country music and not have a festival to attend,” said Shannon McNevan, partner and executive director at Republic Live, the producers behind Boots and Hearts in a release. “We believe it’s in the best interest of everyone involved, and
for the future of country music festivals in this market, to ensure that if you’ve already invested your money, you have a chance to enjoy what you paid for.” Capital Hoedown ticket holders have until Aug. 3 to exchange their passes. A one-day voucher will be valid for a one-day Boots and Hearts ticket, while a three-day pass will warrant a three-day wristband. A small service fee will apply. “A cancellation of this nature negatively affects the entire Ontario country music market, from the fans confidence to buy tickets in advance to the agents of global superstars being afraid to book their artists at our festivals in the future,” said McNevan. “We’re happy to give all Hoedown ticket holders that have not received refunds the opportunity to come and experience Boots and Hearts with us this year.”
Boots and Hearts is a three-day country music festival that is taking place in Bowmanville at the Canadian Tire Motorsport Park from Aug. 10 to 12. With more than 40 bands lined up for the show, some of the big-name artists include Tim McGraw, Kid Rock, Carrie Underwood, Lionel Richie, Big and Rich, Sheryl Crow and Paul Brandt. Boots and Hearts also offers: * Camping permits. * A midway with rides and games. * Beach volleyball. * Mechanical bull riding competition. * Bouncy castles. * Petting zoo.

Barb O’Dell is eager to welcome clients to her new home-based spa in Constance Bay. O’Dell loves to make clients feel pampered and taken care of.
New Constance Bay spa offers comforts of home Theresa Fritz email@example.com
EMC business – Barb O’Dell got her first pedicure at the age of 44 and although she didn’t know it at the time, that was a major turning point in her life. She enjoyed the pampering and relaxation so much; she began to get manicures and pedicures more often. But, she had no idea that one day the world of esthetics would be so near and dear to her heart. Last Thursday, O’Dell officially opened a spa in her home in Constance Bay. The All About You Spa offers a variety of spa and nail care services, with additional services to follow. “All About You is about people coming in and having a nice experience, not being rushed,” says O’Dell. “I want people to be comfortable.” The road to running her business has not been a straight one. A one-time high tech worker, O’Dell took time off from the workforce to

raise a family. She eventually went back to work and ended up with several part-time jobs, with her husband being the family’s main breadwinner. When he was suddenly laid off, she knew she had to do something to supplement the family income. She started cleaning houses and although she enjoyed it, she wanted more. “Esthetics made me feel so good. That’s why I did it. I wanted other people to feel as good I did,” O’Dell admits. As she felt herself thinking there might be a career in the field for her, she started look up schools. And she found an esthetician program at Algonquin that was offered in the evening, thus allowing her to keep up her part-time work as well. She registered online and never looked back. “It was the best thing I ever did,” she recalls. While it had been many years since O’Dell had been in a classroom, she jumped right in to student life and was

eager to learn. “I thought I was too old but there were people of all ages there,” she recalls, adding she never expected to be back in school in her ‘50s. A mix of theory and practical training in nail care and applications, hair removal, skin care and body treatments provided O’Dell with the tools she needed to forger her career. She worked at a spa in the city for a couple of months and still works there on weekends. She believes this compliments what she does at her home spa nicely. O’Dell loves the freedom and creativity that comes with being her own boss. She also finds great joy in operating a business designed to help people experience more happiness, health, and well-being. A main floor family room in her home has been transformed into a relaxation sanctuary where clients can come in and be pampered in
Barb O’Dell gives Nancy Butler a hand makeover by way of a manicure, one of a number of treatments and services offered at the new spa. a private setting. With living quarters separate from the spa, there is no sense people are intruding on the O’Dell family. “I love making people feel good. I just want them to feel special and taken care of,” O’Dell says. “It does not seem like work at all.” She admits she could not have done all that she has without her family’s support. “I am so, so grateful to my family and my friends for
all their support,” she states. “This whole experience has been unbelievable…This would not have happened has my husband not been laid off.” O’Dell also believes in giving something back. And as such, she is taking three per cent of everything she takes in from her business and donating back to local a charity. “I just want to say thank you,” says the woman who still bartends at the West Car-
leton Legion, despite a busy schedule and life. She hopes her story will encourage others who have been laid off not to give up hope. “I never thought I would be doing this and now I can’t imagine doing anything else,” O’Dell concludes.

Trooper singer set to rock Arnprior Fair August10 Band last played in town six years ago EMC entertainment – Trooper takes to the stage at the 158th annual Arnprior Fair on Friday, Aug. 10. Lead singer Ra McGuire – born Ramon Wayne in Vancouver, B.C. – answered four questions from the Chronicle Guide EMC via email during a recent exclusive interview. You travel extensively throughout the country, meeting lots of Canadians and learning about their communities. What are your thoughts on the state of the nation? You’re right, we’ve covered a lot of ground in Canada, and I love that we get to travel to the many cities and towns we do. We’ve been from coast to coast to coast and everywhere in between! Everywhere we go we meet good folks who like to enjoy themselves. I’m proud to be a Canadian, and I’m proud to be in a band that’s developed such strong connections to Canadian culture. Who have you taken to the stage with that you admire most, and why? We’ve played with a lot of bands over the years - all of them fun/interesting/entertain-
ing in their way. I really enjoyed our touring in the southern states with ZZ Top during the period when Tush was on the radio. They were like the Beatles down there at the time and I admired their overall casually rockin’ attitude and vibe. The music business has undergone tremendous change over the years. What are your impressions of how it has evolved, and is rock and roll dead? Rock and roll is not dead, but there’s a chance that the music business, at least in the form that we came up with, might be. Things have changed a lot for music and musicians. I’m not convinced that we’ve arrived at the perfect alterna-
tive to the major labels yet, but I think we’re getting closer. It would be nice if, by the time the four labels finally find their business model unsustainable, a new paradigm will have established itself. You’ve played Arnprior in the past. Any thoughts on the community? We were in Arnprior six years ago and we had a great time. The show was sold out and the audience was rockin’! We’re looking forward to returning. McGuire has performed with Trooper, along with Brian Smith, since 1975 when their first album was released. Trooper continues to perform up to 100 shows a year across Canada.
Go Local. You’ll love the experience!

Water levels considerably lower than usual for this period Continued from page 7
Residents throughout the watershed should make themselves aware of any bans or
bylaws in place in their municipalities regarding fires or water use. However, for residents of Ottawa, the City of
Ottawa’s urban and suburban drinking water system relies upon the Ottawa River and this Level II Low Water Con-
dition declaration does not include those users. Should the warm and dry conditions persist through
August, however, conservation measures and limits to navigation may need to be applied. Boaters need to be cautious on lakes other than the reservoir lakes which do not have control structures that keep the water level elevated. Conservation Authority staff continue to monitor conditions and communicate with water managers throughout the watershed through the MVWRT. An update to this message will be issued in a week, or sooner if conditions warrant it. MVC staff will continue to monitor conditions and re-
port new information as it becomes available. To learn more about Ontario’s Low Water Response program visit: http://www.mnr.gov. on.ca/en/Business/Water/ 2ColumnSubPage/STEL02_ 164583.html. Any individuals or businesses in the Mississippi River Watershed who may be experiencing unusual problems or hardships due to low water are encouraged to contact MVC by calling 613-259-2421 ext. 233 or 243.

vour. Depending on how much you use, the intensity of the flavour will be either just noticeable or very distinctive. If you’re not sure which you prefer, go for the smaller amount first. The recipe calls for milk, but you can use cream if you want a richer flavour. If you’re a traditionalist, this soup can be served hot rather than cold. Ginger Carrot Soup
2 tbsp. butter 1 onion, finely chopped 1/2 clove garlic, minced 1 to 2 tsp. grated fresh ginger root 1/2 tsp. curry powder 3 cups sliced carrots 1/4 cup uncooked rice 4 1/2 cups water
2 chicken bouillon cubes 2 cups milk salt, pepper to taste In a large saucepan, melt the butter, and cook the onion and garlic until softened. Add the grated ginger and curry powder, and cook two or three minutes more without letting the mixture brown. Add the carrots, rice, water, bouillon cubes, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat then cover. Simmer until the carrots and rice are cooked, about 45 minutes. Puree in a blender, in two batches if necessary. Add the milk. If you’re serving this hot, return the soup to the saucepan and reheat, without boiling. If serving cold, chill in the refrigerator. Makes six servings.

EMC lifestyle - I first put this soup recipe in my column a few years ago, and it was so popular that I’m repeating it. The idea of having cold soup rather than hot may seem strange, but it can be wonderfully refreshing on a hot summer day. Chilled soup is no stranger to people living in hot climates. Spanish gazpacho is a tomato-based soup that’s almost like a salad in a bowl. French Vichysoisse, made with potatoes and leeks, is traditionally served cold. And one of my own favourites is a tomato soup flavoured with basil and mint. When you’re serving a light supper that’s mainly salads and cold cuts, a bowl of chilled soup makes a perfect first course. It whets the appetite, but doesn’t fill you up. This carrot soup is delicious when chilled. It can be served in mugs for a casual outdoor picnic, or in your best china soup bowls as a first course for a summer lunch or dinner party. Fresh ginger gives this carrot soup a totally different fla-

in conjunction with the tour. Farmers will be provided the opportunity to present the facts on the economic impact on the drought. This information will be used to support the lobby effort. Government agencies and Ag industry experts will be invited to share information on what is currently available for the farmers. The Federation continues to work with the Low Water Response Team. Other action items discussed include working with local municipal and county governments, to ask for an extension on property tax payment deadlines; to establish an emergency number where farmers can call for assistance for issues such as water shortage. The Federation would like remind people that The Farm Line support number is 1-888-451-2903. The also ask everyone to support each other in this time of crisis.

vened by the Renfrew County Federation of Agriculture, held July 18 in Cobden, was attended by commodity leaders and other general farm organization representatives to review the situation and create a plan of action. “This is a crisis and we all need to work together,” said Renfrew Federation president Bob Johnston.
EMC news - Renfrew County is experiencing the worst drought in over 50 years and has already surpassed Level Two drought conditions as described in the Low Water Response criteria. Farmers in the county are bracing for devastating losses not only in crops, but in livestock as well. Many are looking to the government for emergency assistance beyond what is offered in standard safety net programs. Animals that will cost a fortune to feed over the winter are being shipped to market ahead of schedule and incurring losses as the market floods across the province and North America. Those who were looking forward to good prices for their crops can only watch with despair as the prices rise but their crops wither in the fields. A special meeting con-

www.midwaymagic.ca 20 West Carleton Review EMC - Thursday, July 26, 2012
EMC events - After great success last year, the Almonte Baptist Church, Mills Community Support Corporation and the Alzheimer’s Society of Lanark County have partnered to organize the second annual Seniors’ Expo in Mississippi Mills to be held Thursday, Sept. 13. This year the event is moving to a larger venue, the Almonte Community Centre (182 Bridge Street), and will kick-off at 9:30 a.m. and close at 3 p.m. with free admission. A new key Seniors’ Expo sponsor, the Canadian Association of Retired Persons (CARP), is in the process of setting up a Lanark Chapter and will host a general membership meeting to establish a Board of Directors. The meeting will be held at 3:30 p.m. in the upper arena hall and will be open to the public. The Seniors’ Expo is a “showcase of services” for people 50 plus and their caregivers. You can expect exhibitors from social service agencies, support groups, retirement homes, local attractions, pharmacies, seniors activity groups, and others. While residents are often not familiar with the assorted services that are available in our region, the organizers hope that the expo will generate greater awareness of area supports, services and opportunities. Seminars and entertainment will be provided throughout the day and door prizes will be drawn. The Seniors’ Expo and all workshops are free of charge. A light lunch will be available for a small fee. A portion of the Expo’s proceeds will be donated in support of the Mississippi Mills Hospice Initiative. For more information, contact Jan Watson, Mills Community Support, (613) 256-4700 or via email email@example.com; Margo Smith, Almonte Baptist Church, (613) 256-9162, firstname.lastname@example.org; Karen Timmons, Alzheimer Society, alzktim-

Lumière Gala to benefit cancer researchers Popular Brookstreet Hotel event is now in its 10th year Jessica Cunha
EMC news - Funds raised through this year’s 10th-annual Lumière Charity Gala will benefit cancer researchers as they seek out a cure. The Brookstreet Hotel, which hosts the annual event, announced on Thursday, July 12, that funds raised will benefit the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation and its year-long, $8-million fundraising campaign The Cancer Research Project. The research project is focused on supporting researchers and clinicians with funding for clinical trials and innovative projects. “They’re our hope for the future,” said Linda Eagen, Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation president and CEO. The money will “support the researchers, the champions for a cure,” she said. Patrice Basille, executive vice president and general manager of the Brookstreet Hotel, said cancer is something that has
touched the staff at the company personally. Ten employees at the Kanata hotel were diagnosed with various forms of cancer. Each overcame his or her battle to become cancer survivors, he said. “We’ve all been touched by cancer,” said Eagen. JAZZ INSPIRED MENU
The 2012 Lumière Charity Gala will take place at the Brookstreet Hotel, located at 525 Legget Dr., on Sept. 12. The event will feature “four-diamond cuisine” paired with various wines. Executive chef Clifford Lyness created a menu inspired by jazz festivals from around the world, including Indonesia, New Orleans and Wales. “We’re looking forward to an awesome night,” said Lyness over video chat during the announcement. Lyness is currently overseas at the Brookstreet’s sister hotel, the Celtic Manor, in the United Kingdom.
He added there will be live cooking demonstrations throughout the night. The evening will feature a live and silent auction, a jazz band, and a fireworks display. The dress code is elegant casual. Now in its 10th year, the Lumière Charity Gala first began in June 2003 to celebrate the grand opening of the Brookstreet Hotel. Due to a successful event, chairman Terry Matthews decided to make the event an annual fundraiser. To date, Brookstreet has donated more than $300,000 to local charities and over $160,000 for cancer research through Lumière. This year’s event is being held in partnership with the Wesley Clover Foundation, a non-profit charity committed to supporting advances in healthcare research. Early bird tickets can be purchased for a reduced price of $125 before July 31. The price rises to $150 after that date. Discounts are available for groups of 10 or more people.

New bathing suits don’t leave the girls bored EMC lifestyle - “I can’t believe you let those girls go in swimming in their underwear,” Aunt Lizzie said at the supper table. “It really isn’t underwear,” my sister Audrey said. And she explained how Mother had made bloomer-like bottoms, and sleeveless tops, because we couldn’t afford real swimming suits from Walker’s Store in Renfrew. She told Aunt Lizzie just about all the girls on the Northcote Side Road were similarly dressed when they swam in the Bonnechere. Well, not my little friend Joyce. But she lived in a brick house, and had a real ﬂush toilet in their bathroom. No outside backhouse, and Eaton’s catalogue on a spike at their farm! And she had a real bathing suit, and a bright red rubber bathing cap, and matching
rubber shoes. But she was still my friend, and it made no difference to Joyce that I was dressed in hand-me-downs, or homemade blouses and dresses out of ﬂour bag, and wore an outﬁt Mother had made out of broadcloth at nine cents a yard at Walker’s Store to swim in! But it seemed to be a major issue to Aunt Lizzie. And she wasn’t going to let it die. She continued to harp on it right up until it was time to go to bed, adding, as usual her reminding Mother in a subtle way, that she wasn’t really good farm-wife material, coming from New York and all. I knew Mother couldn’t wait to see the last of Aunt Lizzie. It was a hot and blistering day when we got up the next morning, and loaded Aunt Lizzie and her genuine cow-

to see the last of his sister. “Once a year is once too often,” he said. Well, Aunt Lizzie was only gone a week when a parcel, wrapped in brown paper, arrived in the mail. And lo and behold, when Mother opened it, there were two brand new bathing suits, one for me, and one for my sister Audrey. They were identical in style and colour, but, of course, in two different sizes. They were white and navy stripes, and even though it was late in the day, Mother said we could try them on and take a fast run down to the Bonnechere and have a dip. Well, you never saw two girls strip down so fast in your life! Audrey and I never even stopped to dip our toes in the water to test it ﬁrst! We dove in, and bobbed up and down, splashed each other, and got the suits thoroughly soaked. Mother had told us we could only stay in the water a few minutes ... just long enough to try out the new swim suits. There was supper to think of as we climbed out of the water. The suits were as stiff as boards. Audrey’s didn’t look

they dried they got smaller and smaller, which suited Audrey and me just ﬁne. Neither of us had any intention of ever wearing them again. It was back to the homemade broadcloth bloomers and blousettes for us. Of course, we had to write Aunt Lizzie thank you letters and we were never allowed to lie. I told her thanks, saying I had never had a store-bought bathing suit before, and the colour was very nice. I didn’t tell her that both suits had been put in the trunk upstairs, or that one day they could probably be seen in one of the braided rugs Mother made very Fall out of old scraps of wool material rescued from the hand-me-down box.

The weight of it caused it to leave my upper body, and it stretched all the way down to my knees. I couldn’t wait to get rid of it, and Audrey and I waddled our way back home to show Mother what had happened, and have her try to explain why two lovely bathing suits had turned into suits of armour when they got wet. “They’re pure wool!

Kanata Seniors Council gears up for September AGM presently moving ahead to prioritize some of the proposals within the context of the Older Adult Plan. “Then we had the second year of our Far West Fun Fest with more events and many more participants who, it seems, enjoyed themselves so much that we’re already getting asked for next years’ dates!” At the request of the emergency medical team from the Queensway Carleton Hospital, “we organized a meeting where people were invited to make suggestions as to how to improve the emergency system so that it was more olderadult friendly. The meeting,” says Dubie, “was extremely well attended and the suggestions made are being looked at right now. We’ve recently heard that the Queensway will be coming up with a report in the near future.” While Dubie is quick to admit that “staffing a couple of major positions at the extremely popular Council Cafe” remains an ongoing challenge,
she is equally positive that “despite that we must be doing something right since our clientele is still growing – depending on the time of year.” The computer program with its competitively priced one-on-one tutorials, as well as access to the Council’s computers, remains a firm favourite with more and more seniors taking the plunge into the somewhat confusing world of tablets, smart phones, email and the web. “All in all we try to provide activities and run programs for the support and enjoyment of our seniors,” says Dubie, “but we’re always open to suggestions as, indeed, we are to encouraging anyone who would like to make a contribution, to run for office on our 15-person Board.” A highlight of the meeting is the presentation of the Frank Valentine award which is presented to a person or a couple from the community whose volunteer activities, over a period of years, have contributed to improving the

EMC news - The Kanata Seniors’ Council will be gathering for this year’s Annual General Meeting on Monday, Sept. 10 in the Mlacak Hall at 2500 Campeau Dr. in Kanata. President Kay Dubie is hoping for a good turnout not only because it presents an opportunity to recall the “highlights of the year that’s passed but also so we can maybe get some feedback on activities that people would like to see us work on for this coming year.” Highlights of the past year included the council taking the lead role in replicating the Mayor’s Forum on ways of making the city “more olderadult friendly. “A lot of people were disappointed at not being able to attend the mayor’s meeting downtown so we decided to hold our own, which we did with support from the five west Ottawa councillors and the city.” The findings from that forum have been rolled into the findings of the city which is

quality of life for seniors. “So many people are engaged in volunteering in one way or another that we like to recognize those who have worked almost completely in the shadows, as it were,” explains Dubie. She encourages anyone who “would like to have the work of a friend or a neighbour recognized” to get involved in the nomination process. “All you have to do is pick up a nomination form from the Seniors Centre at 2500 Campeau Dr. or you can do the same thing by going on line to firstname.lastname@example.org. Nominations have to be in no later than August 17 and it’s a great way to say ‘thank you’ to those unsung heroes in our society,” she points out. Dubie is hoping for a good turnout. “We have about 1100 members on our records but many move without letting us know. We’re in the process of updating our records but it would certainly be good to have a strong showing for the Annual General meeting so that we not only get to meet our members but they get a chance to let us know whether we’re on the right path and that, in the long run, is what this is all about.” The annual general meeting will start at 11 a.m. and run until 1 p.m., concluding with a light lunch.
Kay Dubie of the Kanata Seniors says the annual general meeting will reflect on the past year, but it something of a brainstorming opportunity to discuss next year’s goals.

Hall brings his game to Calabogie, Pakenham Steve Newman
EMC sports - Steve Hall looks and feels the part of a golf teaching pro. Well tanned and dressed in a TaylorMade cap, bright orange and white shirt, dark shorts and white Adidas golf shoes, he’s out on the driving range giving a lesson to youngsters Mark and Luke Baumgart. They’re new to the game, but already they understand some of its nuances. “It’s a fun game to play once you get good at it,” says Mark, 8. “It’s a nice and calm game,” says Luke, 10. “It really takes a lot of focus. It’s not power that gets the ball to fly. It’s the way you hit it.” This particular morning Hall is working with the youngsters in his capacity as the new teaching pro at the Calabogie Highlands Golf Club. The Renfrew native has worked in the golf industry for years after first getting hooked on the game while playing out of the Renfrew Golf Club as a kid. “I remember my very first tee shot. I skied the ball over the road and out of bounds, and thought, ‘I can do better than that.’” And he did. Tennis and baseball were big games in his life, but then golf started to take over. “We were on the golf course all the time,” he says. “No one could help you improve, outside of taking a lesson,” he says, trying to describe his fascination with the game. “You don’t need someone to pass (the puck) to you. It’s an individual game, just you and the golf course.” Now 51, he says it’s a game one can’t take for granted. “I still work on my game, I still practise,” says Hall, who regularly plays in the low-mid 70s. He says he also works and plays at a beautiful course, whose main 18 holes feature as much variety as any in the Valley, with gradual climbs or descents on some holes, fluctuating elevations on others, and enough water to keep one honest. Wherever he’s worked, including his previous post at the Mountain Creek Golf Club near Arnprior, golf has continued to suit his personality. “The reason why golf and the golf business fit with me is that you’re always moving. You’re never in one spot for a length of time,” says Hall, whose club duties range from instruction and purchasing inventory for the pro shops (in Calabogie and Pakenham), to booking tournaments and marketing. But a major task is his role as a teaching professional, as drills remain a mainstay of instruction.
golfers, he says you have to show them bigger parts of the swing, and let them learn from hitting balls and playing the game. With older or more experienced players, it’s often a time to tackle little elements of the swing, or work on mental aspects of the game. With new golfers, Hall says time needs to be spent working on grip, stance, posture and alignment to the ball. This involves focusing primarily on the getting to the top of the backswing and finishing the swing, he says. “Everything else just happens. If you stop and think of what’s happening in between, you’re going to have paralysis by analysis.” With grip, there can’t be too much pressure, while the hands need to line up with the club head. For stance, too wide or too short prevents equal weight distribution. For posture, have the knees bent and the spine tilted forward from the waist to optimize rotation around the spine.
AD PROOF FORM
RAILWAY TRACK SYSTEM
As for alignment, he says too many players line up their body with the target, instead of with their ball, leading to such habits as pulls and slicing. Hall calls his approach the railway track system. “The ball,” he explains, “is on the same track as the target. Your body is on a parallel track.” The game isn’t just a technical exercise, though. Hall says etiquette and other life skills learned on the golf course can be invaluable. “If you want to see a person’s real demeanor, play golf with them,” says Hall, noting that apparently patient people struggle to keep their patience on the links. Golfers may also need remind themselves now and then, says Hall, that it’s just a game, and that bad shots aren’t the end of the world. With other people starving or struggling in much bigger ways, he concludes, “The most important things are your family and your health, and there are always other days. Some days you’re going to play well, some days you’re going to play badly.”

ATTENTION MARCH RURAL COMMUNITY
Over the past couple of weeks the Ottawa Police Service received several reports of mischief and theft from vehicle incidents in your area. Please take the time to remove all of your valuables from your vehicles and lock the doors at all times. There have been some unidentified culprits carhopping in the Dunrobin and March roads area in search for some easy money and electronic goods. Remember, you are the eyes and ears in the neighbourhoodâ€”report all suspicious and unusual activity to police and to your neighbours. Take the time to speak to your neighbours about the recent theft from vehicle incidents and work together to keep crime at bay. DISTURBANCE
Police were called into the Bayview Drive in Constance Bay at around 2:30 a.m. on Sunday, July 8 for a report of a noisy party. Information on the call indicated that there was lots of shouting and loud music coming from the beach front property. Witnesses identified this issue as an ongoing problem. The cottage owner was verbally warned about the noise by-law and was instructed to switch the music off and move the partygoers inside. At around 1 a.m. on Thursday, July 12 police were dispatched into the bay for a report of a female bang-
ing on a residential door on Bayview Drive on Constance Bay screaming and crying for police. The homeowner did not open the door for safety reasons, but immediately called 911 for assistance. Before police arrived on scene the female ran over to a neighbouring house and banged on the door. This time the homeowners let her in and encouraged her to stay inside and wait for police. On scene police found the intoxicated female curled up in a corner lying on the floor crying. When police spoke with the female they learned that she had consumed quite a bit of alcohol at a local watering hole before running off on foot into the forest. Because of her state of mind she was only able to provide the officers with a minimum amount of information. In the end police drove the female back to Manotick and left her in the care of her boyfriend. MISCHIEF
A Pine Valley Court homeowner reported that unidentified pranksters threw toilet paper and red â€œgoopâ€? all over her front lawn sometime between 10:15 and 11:15 p.m. on Sun., July 8. No other mischief was reported in the neighbourhood. Sometime during the overnight hours on Thursday, July 12 an unidentified culprit tampered with at least two vehicles in the Bathurst neighbourhood causing a potential safety hazard. Upon being alerted to the mischief by a neighbour, the complainant checked her vehicleâ€™s tires and discovered that the lug nuts to the rear passenger side tires were all loosened. This discovery only came after she drove her vehicle into work, which was over 50 kilometres away, at highway speeds. SUSPICIOUS

EMC news - Ottawa Fire Services is calling on members of the community to be cautious when throwing out lit cigarettes or matches, which could result in bush or grass fires due to the dry spell the region is experiencing. By disposing of cigarette butts and matches in appropriate containers, residents can help prevent fires - do not throw them onto the side of the road, in a flower bed or near other combustibles such as decks, garbage or fences. A single cigarette thrown
onto the side of the road can cause a large grass or brush fire. Ottawa Fire Services has had numerous calls over the past few weeks for smouldering mulch at homes and businesses, all caused by improperly discarded cigarette butts. Residents need to be aware of their actions, especially during this extremely dry period. Hot and dry conditions across the city have also increased the risk of fires from barbecues and grills.

The West Carleton Police Centre is located at 5670 Carp Road and can be reached at 236-1222 ext. 2982. The Centre is a â€œcommunity problem-solving centreâ€? and is responsible for the delivery of the Ottawa Police crime prevention programs. It is important to note that the West Carleton CPC is not an emergency response centre and that we do not dispatch cars to complaints or crimes in progress. When these situations arise, it is important to know the numbers to call for an appropriate response: 911 â€“ for life-threatening emergencies or crimes in progress; 613-230-6211 â€“ other emergencies, i.e.: suspicious incident or disturbance; 613-236-1222, ext. 7300 â€“ the O.P.S. call centre, to report a theft, missing person or stolen vehicle; and 311 â€“ for Bylaw Dispatch Services. All of these numbers along with other useful information can be found in the red pages at the front of your residential directory. If you have any information regarding any criminal activity, call Crime Stoppers at 613-233-8477 (TIPS), or toll free at 1800-222-8477. Finally, if you are ever in doubt as to whether or not you should call police, or you cannot remember the non-emergency numbers, call 9-1-1. The caring and professional 9-1-1 Call Takers will steer you in the right direction.

that fire and all smouldering materials are completely extinguished with water before leaving the area. Barbecue & grill safety:
*Have a garden hose, fire extinguisher or buckets of water nearby. *Barbecues and grills should be at least three metres away from your home. *Make sure your grill or barbecue is level and away from overhanging branches, grass, hedges, fences, sheds and other dry or flammable areas and materials. Also keep children and pets at least one metre away. *Keep all matches and lighters away from children.
*Do not use matches or lighters near dry grass or wooded areas. *Never grill under a tent, canopy or in a garage. Residents are reminded that in order to have an open air fire in the city, a fire permit must be obtained. Please note however that there is currently a burn ban in effect. Any open air burning poses a great risk of fire. An open air fire, such as a campfire, fire in a chimnea or other type of unit, can spread into the yard and nearby wooded areas from embers floating into the air. If an outdoor fire occurs, call 911 immediately. Move people from the area and try to safely extinguish small fires with a water hose or buckets of water if able.

Ottawa police warn residents of phone scam
EMC news - Ottawa police have received several 911 calls from residents who had been contacted by someone saying that they need to pay a fine or the police will be sent to their residence. Typically the caller will direct the person to make payment using a money wiring service. The fraudster is using a call display number such as 1-911111-1111. This is a “spoofed” or masked number likely from the Internet and did not originate from the Ottawa police or any other police service. This type of call is a scam. In no circumstances do the Ottawa police or any other police agency call to collect fines. Do not send money. Simply hang up. Should you receive such a call, or for more information about mass-marketing frauds, call the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre toll free, Monday to Friday, at 1-888-495-8501 or e-mail at info@ antifraudcentre.ca.

Nine mixed slo pitch teams got together over the weekend at the Dunrobin Community Centre for the second annual Hitting Homeruns for CHEO Tournament. They combined to raise $4,000. The two finalists – Mo’Runs and Beefy Coon Dogs – showed good sportsmanship as after several games played by each throughout the weekend, they mutually decided both team names would go on the championship trophy for 2012. The tournament also featured a home run hitting contest Saturday afternoon. Neil Lockwood of Mojo won the men’s side while Sherri Dalton of Toxic captured the women’s division. “I cannot thank our tournament sponsors enough,” organizer Lori McGrath said of the tournament. She thanked a number of organizations throughout the community for their support. “The Dunrobin Community Association has given far and away over and above what we could have thought,” McGrath said. She also thanked Canadian Tire and slopitch.com, as well as Eagle Creek, who came through with last-minute donations. “I would especially like to thank the kids. We couldn’t have pulled this off the way we have (without their help),” McGrath added. The support given by the teenagers also counted for their community hours. It was also a great weekend weatherwise for the tournament. “We couldn’t have asked for better weekend. It was a bit hot on Sunday, but it was a great weekend to play ball.” Combined with last year’s $2,550, Hitting Homeruns for CHEO has raised $6,550 for the cause.

Gil Read memorial tournament brings top fastpitch teams to Carp July 27-29 EMC sports - Reputation is everything when it comes to sporting events and when a competition is as successful as the ‘Gil Read Memorial Fastpitch Tournament’ has been during its relatively short history the best teams are sure to come knocking. “We have some of the top (men’s) teams on the continent playing in Carp this year,” says Chris Read, son of the late Gil Read and one of the chief organizers of the fifth annual competition. “The (Toronto) Gators are coming and we’re really excited. They’re one of the best known teams in the country,” an obviously enthusiastic Read says. The 10-team tournament opens Friday night (July 27) at Carp Fairgrounds and continues all day Saturday before concluding Sunday. What is almost certain to be a very entertaining championship game goes late Sunday afternoon. There will be two games Friday night, seven on Saturday and two Sunday morning before the semi-final playoffs which will take place at 1 p.m. Sunday. The final is scheduled to begin between 3-3:30 p.m. Sunday. This marks the third year the competition, which includes five entries from the Greater Ottawa Fastball League (GOFL), will be staged at the expansive fairgrounds in the village of Carp in the West Carleton section of Ottawa. All funds raised during the competition will go to assist underprivileged children who wish to play organized sports. “We now have applications from people who are looking for financial assistance and we have a committee in place to consider the applications,” Read notes. He says the applications are indicative of the fact people are now aware of the tournament and the financial assistance it provides. “This shows we are growing and moving in the right direction.” In terms of the sport of fastball itself, the quality of the teams participating is the indicator of success. Toronto Gators will join defending champion Donnacona Blue Sox (Quebec City area), the Elkland Thunderbellies from Pennsylvania (Elkland is located in north-central Pennsylvania), Cornwall Pickups and Chisasibi Comets from Chisasibi, Quebec, an aboriginal community located on the eastern shore of James Bay in northern Quebec. “The Chisasibi team in particular is coming a long way to participate in our tournament and we are very pleased to have them,” Read observes. Leading the GOFL teams who have signed on for this year’s tournament are two-time defending league champion Kars Aces. Kars will be joined by host Carp I4C Victory. Those two clubs are currently battling for first place in the 2012 league standings. The other GOFL entries are Ottawa Taylor’s Blitz, currently fourth in the league, Stittsville 56ers and Fitzroy Harbour West Carleton Electric (Fitzroy WC) who stood sixth and seventh respectively last week.
Proper Stretching: Minimizing Pain and Maximizing Flexibility By: Your Now that summer has arrived, the itch has set in to get outside and resume exciting outdoor runs instead of logging hours on the dreaded treadmill. Visualize a cool, clear, Sunday afternoon as you prepare to head out for a jog. Your running shoes are tightly tied and right before you begin, you complete your usual stretching routine: one or two minutes of hamstring and calf stretches, and then you’re off. Right? Wrong! A cold muscle should never be stretched in any way. You should always complete a warmup before you stretch. Contrary to popular belief, stretching is not warming up; it is only one part of your warm up. A proper warm up typically includes 5 minutes of aerobic activities such as running in place
flexibility. Once your warm up is complete, you should perform dynamic stretches as opposed to static ones if you are about to partake in any sort of athletic activity. Static stretches consist of long sustained holds, where dynamic stretches include slow controlled movements such as arm circles, knee, and hip rotations. This type of stretching prepares you for exercise that include a lot of dynamic activity. One of the most common mistakes people make is to perform static stretches before their fitness session followed by nothing afterwards. The time and

Kars is led by power hitting centre fielder Brad Pender the home run leader in the league this season. Heading into this week’s action Pender had seven round trippers to his credit and had driven in 14 runs in just 10 GOFL contests. His runs batted in (RBI) total is the second best in the seven team league. Versatile teammate Cory Alkerton, who pitches and can play first base and the outfield, is tied for third in the league with four home runs. He had driven in nine last week, good for a share of fourth in RBI. Leading Carp into the tournament on their home diamond will be league RBI leader Matt McNish. He had a huge night in a game against Stittsville last week, going five for five and hitting for the cycle with two singles, a double, triple and home run and six runs batted in. In his other outing last week McNish, a second baseman/outfielder, homered three times and drove in four. He is currently second in GOFL in round-trippers with five and he had 17 RBI in 15 contests. Victory centre fielder Dan Loney leads the league in batting average at .667. Catcher/third baseman Tony Searle and outfielder Ryan Mitts pace the Ottawa offence with nine runs batted in apiece, while teammate Marcel Mondoux stands third in batting average at .541. The event opens Friday night with two games involving GOFL clubs. Kars and Ottawa Blitz meet in the opener at 7 o’clock while the nightcap will see host Carp take on near neighbor Stittsville at 9 p.m. The other local team, Fitzroy WC, has a tough assignment in their first tournament game. They will tangle with Toronto Gators Saturday at 11 a.m. All teams are guaranteed four games. Read is particularly happy to land the power-packed Toronto team for the fifth annual competition. Clubs like Gators have many tournament opportunities. “They were originally scheduled to play in another event. But that fell through somehow and they have decided to come here. We are obviously happy they did.” The other Quebec entry, Donnacona, is also a much respected opponent. On the weekend of July 13-15 they were in Au Sable Forks, New York for the 50th annual men’s fastpitch tournament in that village near Lake Placid. Blue Sox were trying to make it three straight titles in Au Sable Forks. But Carp I4C Victory had different ideas! Donnacona and Carp went head-to-head in the final. By the fifth inning Blue Sox looked to be well on their way to a third straight title, leading 6-2. Carp then employed the long ball to come back and win the event. Bruce Hackett belted a grand slam in the fifth to tie it. McNish won it with a “no doubt about it” two-run shot in the seventh which landed on the road outside the ball park. Victory was an impressive 6-0 in the three-day competition! It was the first tournament win ever for the Carp squad which was formed just over six years ago. “I think we are in for a really good tournament here this year with so many excellent teams involved,” Read observes. “By putting on a good event we will help ourselves in the future and up the prize pot.” The winner in Carp this weekLocal Family Physiotherapy Team end will pocket $1,800 while the or skipping rope to get your heart place for static stretching is after runner-up takes home $700.

“We haven’t achieved that so I hope a good tournament this year will allow us to reach the original goal of 12.” Another big objective is additional corporate sponsorship. “We have some really good sponsors who are back with us again this year. We really appreciate their involvement. But if we can add some more then we can become more profitable and boost the foundation,” he outlines. Third for Carp
As mentioned, this marks the third year the event will be staged at Carp Fairgrounds which is quickly gaining a reputation as an excellent tournament venue. Fastball fans from Eastern Ontario and West Quebec will have an opportunity to see some of the top fastball players in the region do battle on two diamonds this weekend. Until 2010 the tournament, which is named in memory of Read’s father Gil a long-time coach from the Ottawa area who died tragically in 2007, was played at Carlington Park in westcentral Ottawa. Facility rental costs skyrocketed in the city proper, however, prompting the organizing committee to seek another venue. They settled on Carp Fairgrounds, hoping to attract more fans and increase revenues. It worked out very well. The 2010 tournament was a complete success. The foundation nearly doubled the profit from 2009 and that trend continued last year. Chris and his cousin Al Read, who plays for Carp 14C Victory, are once again heading the organizing committee. They are hoping the sunny, hot weather which has been the weather trend in Eastern Ontario this spring and summer continues in Carp this weekend. “If we get the (good) weather we’re confident it will be another good tournament,” Al says. In last year’s tournament finale (July 24) the Quebec Seniors, an all-star team comprised mainly of players from Donnacona, were easy winners. The successful squad also featured members from other clubs in the province including Quyon Combat Flyers of GOFL. They blanked Napanee North Key Junior Express 6-0 in the title game. North Key was one of two Napanee entries in last year’s showdown. The Quebec squad went undefeated in the 2011 event winning three and tying one in their five-team pool and then pounding Fitzroy WC 10-1 in their semi-final engagement. The Read cousins say fans can expect some excellent fastball in Carp this weekend. Kars, formerly Ottawa Team Easton Thunder, has captured seven of the last nine championships in GOFL and its predecessor the Kemptville Men’s Fastball League. Team Easton swept to five straight titles between 2003 and 2007. Stittsville 56ers, who will also be in Carp this weekend, won back-to-back GOFL crowns in 2008 and 2009. The transplanted Thunder (now Kars Aces) returned to the winner’s podium in 2010 and 2011. Those who attend the tournament will find a refreshment tent on site and food (hot dogs and hamburgers) will be available all weekend. A refreshment tent will operate on site throughout the venture. A day pass for the tournament is $5 per person while a weekend pass is $10. Children under 12 years of age will be admitted free. The tournament’s namesake, the late Gil Read, led three men’s teams to the Canadian championships in 1993, 1995 and again in 1999. He also coached Team Ontario to gold medals at the 1997, 2001 and 2005 Canada Summer Games. For more information, visit www.gilreadtournament.com.

Scott Tokessy memorial tournament running Aug. 3-4 Jessica Cunha email@example.com
EMC sports - The Kanata Little League Baseball Association is gearing up to host the 18th annual Scott Tokessy Memorial Gold Glove Tournament. The nation’s largest little league tournament for charity is set to take place from Aug. 3 to 5. “It’s really good baseball to watch,” said organizing chair Lionel Dubois. “And it’s a great cause.” The baseball tournament began in 1996 in memory of Scott Tokessy. “Scott Tokessy was three days shy of his 12th birthday,” said Dubois. “He hit a
home run and then collapsed in the dugout from an irregular heartbeat.” Last year saw 34 teams participate in the tournament. This year, teams are coming from all over Ottawa, as well as from Toronto, Montreal and other areas in Quebec. The charity event has since raised $255,000 for CHEO’s cardiology department to fund research and the purchase of equipment. Dubois said he is hoping to beat last year’s $10,000 in funds raised. “The key is getting the people out,” he said, adding the umpires donate their first game’s pay back to the charity.
“Support CHEO,” he said. “I think it’s a good idea.” The opening ceremony will take place at the Scott
Tokessy Field, located at the corner of Maple Grove Road and Terry Fox Drive, on Aug. 4, at 10:30 a.m.
All the games will be played at diamonds across Kanata, including the Bridlewood Core Fields, Scott
Tokessy and the east and west Walter Baker fields, the Kinsmen fields and the Frank MacDonald Field.

Teacher welcomes opportunity to help families Dorothy Webster joins Carp Co-operative Nursery School eager to support children and families with their early childhood education
The nursery school uses emergent curriculum, which is learning through child’s interest. Webster explains this means the teacher observes the children within the play and discovers their true interests. Toys and activities at the school are based on this interest. “It is so important to give your child a jumpstart on their education,” said Webster. “Come and check out our lovely nursery school and be part of our community.” For more information, Webster encourages parents and community members to visit the website at www.carpcooperativenurseryschool. org or call 613-839-3416.

the opportunity to help families as their children grow and develop.
EMC lifestyle – The Carp Co-operative Nursery School has turned the page and started a fresh chapter with a new face at the helm. The school, a fixture in the community for more than 20 years, welcomes new teacher Dorothy Webster, who replaces the much-loved Bobbi Coady, who ran the school for most of that time. Webster is new to the Carp nursery school but not to early childhood education, having completed her training at Algonquin College in 2006 and before that working some 17 years in the field, including in nursery school settings. The change in leadership is a good time to implement some changes in line with developments in education, said Webster. The nursery school is a place children can broaden their social, emotional, physical and intellectual growth through teacher-directed and student-directed learning. The co-operative, for children ages twoand-a-half to five, is a place where parents can really get involved in their child’s learning,
which Webster says is so important at the early stage. Duty days and fundraising events help keep parents involved. The children are more involved in their learning path, explained Webster. “Because statistics show if a child is more interested in something, they’re going to learn about it,” she said. “And it makes them feel good because they’re having a bit of a say.” Webster lives in Constance Bay and is the mother of three boys, ages 14, 24 and 25. She comes to Carp from a nursery school in downtown Ottawa and appreciates the rural setting for several reasons, including the opportunity for more field trips. There is also a lot of community support for the school, with businesses and agencies willing to work with the school on projects and events. Originally from Newcastle, England, Webster moved here 14 years ago and says the kids get a big kick out of her accent. Looking ahead, Webster said she’d like to see workshops for parents offered One of the things she loves about the job is

Agriculture Museum brings history of Calgary Stampede, ranching to visitors firstname.lastname@example.org
EMC lifestyle - Canada Agriculture Museum visitors can go back in time and see real artifacts from cattle ranching and the first 100 years of the Calgary Stampede’s history. “Ranching is part of agriculture, so this was a perfect match for the museum,” said Suzanne Beauvais, assistant curator at the museum. The new display, curated by Franz Klingender, has been on this summer and will run at the museum until November. It features artifacts and cowboy gear from the early days of cattle ranching. Beauvais said the museum already had artifacts in collections that linked to ranching, but received cowboy clothing and equipment from a family whose grandfather used in early 20th-century Alberta.
“We had a wonderful western saddle, we got the gun they used, a Hudson Bay blanket and cowboy boots,” said Beauvais. Those articles were in addition to many other tools and artifacts. As part of the exhibit, she said the museum shows “real life” during the early years of the Calgary Stampede and the changing culture of the cowboy during the early part of the last century. “There was the idea that the cowboy was something getting lost and the culture was getting lost,” said Beauvais, adding the Calgary Stampede has always celebrated and embraced that culture. The display also includes a poster for the first Calgary Stampede made in 1912, contrasting the latest one made this year for 2012.

Blood clinic needs 100 donors as need on the rise in summer EMC lifestyle – The next Arnprior blood donor clinic needs close to 100 donors in order to fulfill Canadian Blood Services commitment to local hospitals, says Jennifer Heale. The Canadian Blood Services community development co-ordinator is encouraging people to book an appointment for the clinic,
which will be held Thursday, Aug. 16. The clinic, sponsored by the Rotary Club of Arnprior, will run from 1:30 to 4 p.m. and 5-8:30 p.m. at the Nick Smith Centre. BOOK ONLINE Donors can book a time online at www.blood.ca or
by calling 1-888-236-6283. The summer clinics are particularly important because of the number of accidents during the holiday period. Heale notes that it can take up to 50 blood donors to save one car accident victim. By donating, you could be “giving someone their summer.”
