More delays for kennel rules keep rural area in limbo Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com EMC news - The city’s rural councillors are telling staff to go back to the drawing board again because a proposed kennel bylaw still isn’t up to snuff. West Carleton-March Coun. Eli El-Chantiry called for the delay on Dec. 6, when the city’s agriculture and rural affairs committee was set to receive a revised version of the policy, which is intended to harmonize the amalgamated city’s rules regulating the boarding and breeding of dogs and cats. El-Chantiry still wasn’t happy with the amount of consultation with people who would be affected by the rules. “It seems more and more we’re learning different things from different stakeholders, so I want to make sure we have time to catch up with most of the folks we need to discuss (it) with,� El-Chantiry said. “(The delay is) to give them a little bit more time and do it right.� Staff already had two additional months to work on the policy. El-Chantiry asked for it to be delayed in October, when almost 200 people packed the Greely Community Centre and more than 20 people

spoke to tell councillors about all the problems with the policy as it was proposed. For one thing, the city would be asking many rural dog owners to fly under the radar if it passes new kennel and breeding rules, Kinburn resident Tim Pychyl told councillors on Oct. 4. Pychyl, who owns eight sled dogs, pleaded with the committee to include people like him – recreational pet owners who have more than three dogs. Under the rules staff drafted on Oct. 4, people who have more than three dogs or five cats for breeding or showing must apply for a new permit: an inhome breeding licence. There is a separate licence proposed for commercial kennels or boarding operations. On Oct. 4, a last-minute change was proposed to address Pychyl’s concern and allow people who own a larger number of pets for recreational reasons – including sledding or agility – to apply for an inhome breeding licence, but Pychyl said that’s not good enough. “It’s a principle thing,� he said. “It’s about being part of a city that understands what we’re doing.� “I can assure you one size does not fit all,� ElChantiry said. “If you live in an apartment in the

EMC news - There are still a few bumps on the rocky road to amalgamation, even more than a decade later. One is on a west-end rural road. Or, more accurately, one is the name of the road itself. “People are always upset when you have to change the name of their road,� Eli El-Chantiry said. “They’ve always had it, so they don’t like to see it change. But we have to do it for emergency people.� Members of the March Rural Community Association, specifically those living along Second Line Road, are angry the city gave them almost no inclusion in renaming the road. It sent a letter Nov. 21 notifying residents that different roads in the new city with the same or similar names will have to change. If not, it could prove confusing to 911 responders.

Glebe or if you live on 150 acres in West Carleton, I think we have to see there is a little bit of difference in the process.� VETS EXEMPT

City staff came under fire from the audience on Oct. 4 for exempting veterinarians from the kennel rules. Patrick Hunt, who breeds Irish setters in North Gower, received applause at that meeting when he said the vet exemption needs to be changed. Many veterinary clinics operate a boarding kennel as a side business, but they are not required to get a licence or pay a fee for that kennel and the new rules would continue that exemption. “They shouldn’t be exempt because they’re professionals,� Hunt said. City bylaw chief Linda Anderson said boarding operations at vet clinics are “traditionally� used to house animals after operations, or for temporary care of animal patients. That declaration elicited a loud boo from the crowd and with direction from the committee, Anderson said she would take another look at that aspect of the rules.

Group brainstorms over uses for former school Sabine Gibbins sabine.gibbins@metroland.com

EMC news – Dreams filled the hallways of the deserted former Torbolton school last week. A small group of community members took part in a brainstorming exercise last Thursday afternoon, Dec. 20 to share and exchange ideas on what they’d like to see be implemented in the Torbolton building. The school and surrounding property, located at 3924 Woodkilton Rd. in Woodlawn, have sat idle since September 2007 when the Ottawa public school board closed the school as part of

its accommodation review of schools in West Carleton. It was subsequently declared surplus and put up for sale. A conditional offer on the school property was accepted by the school board last summer, but that deal fell through. But all that changed on July 26 when Marc Desjardins signed on the dotted line making him the new owner of the 1,500-square-metre facility and five hectares of land. Originally priced at $350,000, Desjardins said the school board’s desire to divest itself of the property, and its great potential, made it an attractive buy for him. The small group gathered in the boardroom before mak-

ing their way to the gym, the centre of the discussion that day. Hank Jones, who is spearheading Friends of the Torbolton Centre, a group designed to find leasing opportunities for the property, told the group the sky was the limit in terms of finding possible tenants and uses. The site boasts several different sized classrooms, noted Jones, which could serve several different purposes, ranging from fitness classes to meeting rooms. The gym itself, he noted, could be rented out for parties and other special functions. No matter the use, the building

Town Centre project gets tentative thumbs up Blair Edwards blair.edwards@metroland.com

EMC news - Kanata’s downtown is starting to take shape. Urbandale Corp. detailed plans to develop nearly 10 hectares of the Kanata Town Centre lands during a public meeting held at the Mlacak Centre on Dec. 13. More than 100 people attended the meeting hosted by Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson and Marc Magierowicz, the city planner working on the project. The developer is looking for a mixture of residential, mixed-use and open space on currently undeveloped land. The construction company submitted its proposal in August. The submission is scheduled to go to the planning committee on Jan. 14. A group of residents who have been meeting with the developer over the past two months have given a tentative thumbs up to the proposal after the developer agreed to include sizeable setbacks and the terracing of buildings located near townhouses on Campeau Drive and Gray

Crescent. “We’re pretty pleased with it,” said Jim Taggart, a member of the Kanata Town Centre Action Group. “But the big day is going to be Jan. 14, with the planning committee, where they will make the decisions.” Urbandale plans to develop seven blocks of land located on Canadian Shield Avenue and Maritime Way, an area bounded by Highway 417, Campeau Drive, Gray Crescent and lands owned by the city. The company is asking the city to zone the land as a mixed-use centre, which would allow medium-density residential, office and commercial use. The developer is looking to build: • Two 120-unit apartment buildings between four and six storeys high. • 111,500 square-metres of office and commercial space, which is expected to create 850 new jobs. • A hotel on a block of land located on the corner of Cordillera Street and Canadian Shield Avenue with a six-metre setback from Campeau.

• Several six storey buildings on a block of land on the corner of Great Lakes Avenue and Canadian Shield Avenue. Within 25 metres of Campeau Drive the buildings would be a maximum of three storeys, with a six-metre setback. • Office-type buildings between three and 10 storeys high on a block of land near Highway 417 and a block located on the corner of Great Lakes Avenue and Canadian Shield Avenue. Tim Chadder, a senior planner with J.L. Richards, a consultant hired by Urbandale, said the idea is to avoid constructing a sixstorey building right up against single-storey townhouses in existing neighbourhoods. “We try to stagger the setback so it gives … more of a separation and more of an open feeling.” Urbandale is looking to put the taller buildings on Canadian Shield Avenue and Maritime Way, the blocks of land closest to the highway, he said. “It also allows us to implement the true intention of the Official Plan where the Canadian Shield is really seen as the heart of the com-

munity,” he said. “So we want to try and get that more urban feeling to the buildings that are right on that street front.” He said varying heights can provide an “old school downtown main street feel.” Wilkinson said she was pleased the developer agreed to residents’ request for a terraced approach to building sizes located near existing townhomes. “The developer actually has been very positive in how its dealt with this with the community,” he said. “If anything the city was more stringent than the developer.” Several people at the meeting said they were worried the surrounding roads wouldn’t be able to handle additional traffic. Magierowicz said the city will start work on expanding Campeau Drive to four lanes from Kanata Avenue to Didsbury Road starting in 2014. “That will alleviate some of the traffic concerns,” he said. Wilkinson said expanding the rest of Campeau to four lanes between Kanata Avenue and March Road probably won’t start until after 2017.

Community groups call for city planning reforms laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - Thirty-three community associations from across Ottawa are calling for reforms to the city’s planning department. Led by the Hintonburg Community Association, the groups are calling for four changes to the way the planning department, city councillors and the development industry interact. The suggestions include banning the city from hiring private consultants to process development applications, preventing city planners from making rezoning promises during pre-consultation meetings, banning campaign contributions and gifts from the development industry to councillors and updating the city’s comprehensive zoning bylaw so that it’s in line with the Official Plan. But planning committee chairman Coun. Peter Hume said the city and the community groups are on the same page and the city is already

working towards the changes being requested. “I think that they’re reinforcing exactly what we said we were going to do at the planning summit,� Hume said. Creating certainty about zoning and bringing zoning in line with the Official Plan are two topics Hume has been hammering on since the April 26 summit, he said. “I don’t see here that there is anything where the city is incredibly divergent,� Hume said. “In fact, we’re pleased that they’re here supporting the initiatives that are already underway.� There was one instance where a planner may have crossed the line and “remedies and repercussions� applied, Hume said. “There have been cases where a planner has been told that the approach that was taken in a particular application was inappropriate and should not be continued,� Hume said, “We’re not going to do it anymore,� Hume said. “Period.

icy.� Still, the fact that so many community groups around the city, from Kanata to Rockcliffe, did support the reforms in the letter speaks to the prevalence of the issues, said Gerry Holt of the Kanata-Beaverbrook Community Association. “Getting 33 community associations to come together is not easy,� Baltz said. Most of the associations are concentrated in the urban area and west end. A couple of the groups are citywide: the Greenspace Alliance of Canada’s Capital and the Federation of Citizens’ Associations, which supported the Hinton-

burg group in its push. The Glebe Community Association is supporting a slightly altered version of the letter that expands on the campaign contribution point, basically saying Ottawa should follow the model of Toronto. The basic message of the letter the 33 groups are sending to city hall is there is “way too cozy of a relationship� between the city and the development industry, Baltz said. Coun. Katherine Hobbs, who represents Hintonburg in Kitchissippi ward, received 70 per cent of her campaign contributions from companies or individuals connected to the development industry.

Abandon Presto for Quebec swipe-card system: MPP Jack MacLaren wants investigation into Ottawa sole-sourcing Derek Dunn derek.dunn@metroland.com

EMC news – Ditch the Presto smart card system and go with Gatineau’s city-bus cards, MPP Jack MacLaren said during a press conference at the Terry Fox transit station on Dec. 14. Presto has ballooned into a multi-million-dollar boondoogle, MacLaren said, on par with other McGuinty Liberal initiatives such as eHealth, ORNGE and the closure of two gas plants in southern Ontario. Auditor General Jim McCarter’s report shows the costs of the GTA/Ottawa intended system could exceed $700 million. “It’s another in a long line of Liberal scandals,� said the Carleton-Mississippi Mills MPP, who added that no Presto system in the world is operational and none will likely be operational. Why the government would “reinvent the wheel� is baffling to him. City councillors such as Eli El-Chantiry say they aren’t downplaying the problems with Presto. But the costs are on par with cards in other cities: London, England’s was

never work. “I don’t know what qualifications in technology he has to make that statement,� said the West Carleton-March councillor. MacLaren questions why the government would have the governmental agency Metrolinx consult for a transit card system when it did dubious work on the eHealth – a system to create electron health records. But he doesn’t question the need for a card system. “It’s a sound concept,� he said. “All transit commissions need a one-swipe system. You need something that will let you ride from one end of Toronto to another. There’s six other private companies out there that have the technology right now.� INVESTIGATE SOLE-SOURCING

DEREK DUNN/METROLAND

Jack MacLaren speaks to media at the Terry Fox transit station on Dec. 14. He likens the Presto card system to eHealth and other costly Liberal initiatives. The Carleton-Mississippi Mills MPP wants the auditor general to conduct an investigation into the possible link between gas tax money and the Presto card contract. $1.7 billion; Sydney, Australia’s was $1.23 billion; San Fransico’s in 1999 was $353 million; Chicago’s a year later was $505 million, according to figures published in the Toronto Star last week. The city also has assurances that taxpayers won’t be on the hook for any costs if the technology doesn’t come together properly by April 2013.

MacLaren still insists the city should cut its losses over the tap-and-go card system and start over. “City council should drop it. It was solesourced, overpriced, didn’t work, never will – they’re better off going with the Gatineau system instead,� MacLaren said. El-Chantiry goes on the attack when it comes to MacLaren’s assertion that Presto cards will

MacLaren is asking Ontario’s auditor general to investigate the Ottawa sole-source contract with Presto. He continues to insist the province threatened to withhold $32.5 million in provincial gas tax funding if the city didn’t award the transit payment system contract to Presto. “I wonder why they province did this,� he said. “Is the Ottawa taxpayer getting the best value for money.� He bases his assertion on a May 20, 2011 letter of agreement from the Ontario Minister of Transportation, Bob Chiarelli, to Watson detailing gas tax funds and guidelines for the public transportation program. “The guidelines stated that prior to the release of any dedicated gas tax funds, Ottawa was required to ‘participate in the Presto Fare System project and will be required to meet their financial obligations for that project,� reads a press release from MacLaren. Watson has told media that MacLaren is barking up the wrong tree; that the city signed on with Presto four years ago - before it was tied to gas tax money. El-Chantiry, a card-carrying Liberal, agrees that MacLaren could be headed in the wrong direction. “If he’s aware of a backroom deal, I’m not aware of it.� MacLaren was among the first to tap into Presto problems in Ottawa, bringing his concerns to Chiarelli in November 2011. He said nothing was done. “Maybe instead of being part of the solution he is part of the problem,� MacLaren said.

Road name-change may result in former mayor’s on signs Continued from front

Because Second Line Road near Osgoode has more residents on it, the name won’t

change. Also, the city wants to keep the series together. First, Second, Third, and Fourth Line roads will stick together; Fifth and Sixth Line roads in West Carleton will stay the same.

Canada Post might shut Centrum store Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - Kanata’s last Canada Post-run postal office is on the chopping block. Signs recently went up at Canada Post’s corporate retail story at Kanata Centrum letting customers know that the Crown corporation is considering closing up shop and leaving postal services to its franchise outlets in the area. According to Martin Bertrand, one of three employees at the location Canada Post is considering closing, it would be a mistake. “I feel it is important that we keep the post office open,� said Bertrand, who has worked

for Canada Post for 30 years. “It is a community thing.� Kanata is a growing community, but the post office is still one of those community places where people gather. “Our main concern is to serve the people of Kanata,� Bertrand said. The move came as a surprise when the manager sat the three employees down a few weeks ago to let them know about the proposed closure, Bertrand said. There are 10 postal outlets within 10 kilometres of the Kanata Centrum location, including an outlet inside a Shopper’s Drug Mart store 800 metres away from the Centrum outlet.

Community association president Judy Makin penned in a letter to members that the pro-

cess hasn’t been a good one. “Second line residents were understandably shocked and upset by this unexpected proposal. Many have contacted the city and Coun. Eli El-Chantiry with their views,� Makin wrote. “Many MRCA residents and our directors and past presidents have also waded into this issue, with phone calls and messages to the city. We are dismayed by the process and the lack of consultation.� El-Chantiry, councillor for West CarletonMarch, said longer names have to be rejected because they don’t show up clearly enough on signs. And Carroll must be dropped because it is too similar to others in the city. However, the final list that residents will vote on will include Des Adams as one of the options. He isn’t sure when the vote will take place.

The city’s letter said the name would change to “Des Adam Roadâ€? and offered Dec. 5 as the deadline for any responses. Adams is a former Kanata mayor. Many roads and other public properties are named after politicians in Ottawa, so perhaps that played into the resistance by residents along Second Line. Whatever the reason, a survey that included all households along the road was quickly pulled together and submitted by the deadline. Residents said the road should be called one of the following: • Carroll Crossing • Old Second Line Road • March Second Line • Second Line Road March • Whiskey town Road

OC Transpo Presto cards delayed again

Councillor Eli El-Chantiry

More cards to be released in January; full rollout pushed to early summer Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

Ward 5 West Carleton-March CITY’S WEBSITE UPDATED The City recently launched a newly designed and improved website (www.ottawa.ca). The website now makes it easier for residents and businesses to interact with the City and to ďŹ nd what they are looking for, while strengthening the website’s ability to offer enhanced information and service delivery features. A new feature is the website’s responsiveness to mobile devices by providing better search functionality and the ability to resize the screen image to suit the device it is being viewed on. Residents will also ďŹ nd it easier to view, pay and print their tax bill online. CITY’S WINTER OPERATIONS CREWS CLEAR THE WAY Maintaining Ottawa roads, sidewalks and bus stops is a top priority for City snow clearing crews during and after a snow storm. Clearing the way and getting residents safely to their destination is a high priority for the City during a snow storm. Motorists are reminded to be patient and remain a safe distance behind working snow plows. It is important to never pass a snow plow on the right, as these vehicles are wider than the average vehicle with large blades that extend a meter or more out of the vehicle and into the neighbouring lane. Passing a snow plow on the right could result in severe, even fatal, collisions. The City snow clearing crews maintain an area covering 2,796 km², spanning more than 90 kilometres from east to west. Crews prioritize and optimize snow and ice removal procedures based on the Council-approved Maintenance Quality Standards that were established to ensure the safety and accessibility of the transportation network. These standards make certain a consistent level of snow clearing service is provided to residents. Residents can keep informed of winter storm conditions by signing up for e-Alerts and Twitter notiďŹ cations, listening to local media, or by visiting ottawa.ca. Additional information can be found on the City’s website on snow clearing procedures and how the City prioritizes snow and ice management services. CHRISTMAS SEASON SCHEDULE CHANGES I would like to remind residents that there will be some schedule changes to City services during the Christmas holidays (December 25-26 and January 1). Below is a listing of some of the changes.

6 West Carleton Review EMC - Thursday, December 20, 2012

EMC news - All OC Transpo riders won’t get access to the Presto smart card payment system until May or June – almost a year after the system was supposed to be in use. The beleaguered system has already faced a seven-month delay after technical glitches stalled the planned July 1 launch. Metrolinx, the provincial agency that oversees the smart card system that’s currently used in the Greater Toronto Area, will release an additional 10,000 Presto cards in mid-January. Those cards will start to work on buses on Feb. 1. If everything is working to the city and Metrolinx’s satisfaction, a full rollout could happen by June. The city has negotiated a $3-million discount on its $23.5-million Presto bill to account for the delay. That’s despite insistence from Metrolinx CEO Bruce McCuaig that the system is now “fully functional,� with more than 98 per cent of payment taps working correctly. The additional delay would help Metrolinx “fine tune� the system to prepare for more users, he said. “The system is fully functional right now and I think the issue really is when is the right time to go to the next level,� McCuaig said. Metrolinx officials indicated in August that they planned to phase-in the cards, but the timeline wasn’t clear. The city was planning to distribute as many as 200,000 Presto cards starting last June. That number is expected the serve the total number of OC Transpo customers anticipated to

use the cards in Ottawa. While Presto is used in several cities in southern Ontario including Toronto, Ottawa is the first city to roll out a “new generation� system. Some of the 2,000 people involved in the pilot project had been getting error messages when they tapped their cards on the readers to pay their bus fare in the summer, while others reported that the cards weren’t recognizing when the user topped them up with more value. The implementation timeline is scheduled to be announced on April 17,l along with a report updating transit commissioners on how the system is working with 12,000 users. Full rollout could happen on May 1 or June 1, 2013. But the city also negotiated a clause that would allow either OC Transpo or Metrolinx to withdraw from the deal before June 1. In that case, Metrolinx would absorb the costs from setting up cards readers and other equipment. It’s unclear if the $9.2 million the provincial government kicked in for the project would still be available if Ottawa ditched Presto and found another payment system, but that process could take another three years, OC Transpo general manager John Manconi estimated. An escape clause was missing from the original agreement and it’s something Manconi and OC Transpo staff should be applauded for negotiating now, transit commission chairwoman Diane Deans said. Deans said she wasn’t as involved in the rollout in the beginning and relied on advice from staff, including former OC Transpo general manager Alain Mercier

and Metrolinx officials. “I’ve learned as we’ve gone along that this is much more complex than I certainly knew and (more complex) than we were getting from our staff at the time. “It has become clear to me that trying to issue 200,000 cards on a single day is probably not the best idea,� Deans said. “So why they decided to do it all in one day before, I’m not 100 per cent sure, but I can say with certainty now that this is a better plan.� McCuaig said he wasn’t one of the people at the table when the initial decision for a full, July 1 rollout was made, but he said that plan was based on wanting to make the cards available to as many riders as possible, as quickly as possible. “But I think what we believe is the right moving-forward choice is to be more methodical about it,� he said. McCuaig said Metrolinx learned a lesson from the issues the Ottawa rollout faced. “The lesson that was learned here was to go with a methodical, step-wise approach and that’s the approach we plan to take, that’s the approach OC Transpo agrees is the right path forward, McCuaig said. “When we look at how to deploy Presto in other locations, that’s the approach we’ll be taking.� Commissioners were hesitant to ditch the Presto plan completely because they feel it’s important to have a smart-card payment system in place for the city’s new light-rail transit system that will be built and operational by 2018. About half of the city’s 75 new double-decker buses still need to be outfitted with Presto card readers, but the rest of the transit system is ready to go.

Brookstreet’s Executive Chef Clifford Lyness constructs

giant gingerbread hotel Ottawa, ON - What do you get when you put a fourdiamond hotel’s Executive Chef, thousands of Rice Krispies, a ridiculous amount of gingerbread and fondant in a room? A giant gingerbread hotel, of course. For the past couple weeks, Brookstreet Hotel’s Executive Chef Clifford Lyness has been working away at a nearly five foot gingerbread replica of the hotel, complete with individual balconies, windows, pool, and detailed landscape. Executive Chef Lyness comes with years of experience in the field of gingerbread-housemaking. In the past, he has competed in four competitions hosted by the Westin Harbour Castle in Toronto where he won three out of the four. The one he did not win was his first and he still managed to come in a close second. The Brookstreet gingerbread hotel is currently on display in the main lobby and available for all to see and enjoy.

City staff mum over parking lot rationale

A

recently revealed plan to turn green space in Old Ottawa East into a parking lot has shocked many in the community and rightly leaves residents across the city concerned about how the upcoming light-rail project will be managed. Residents of Ottawa deserve to be kept in the loop when it comes to how the city is proceeding with the single biggest construction project in the capital since the Rideau

Canal was built nearly two centuries ago. City staff involved in the plan to construct a 362-space parking area on green space located at 160 Lees Ave. waited so long to release information about the project that even the area’s councillor, David Chernushenko, was caught off guard when he was informed on Dec. 5 The open area is used as green space by the Archville neighbourhood and the 3,000 residents of neighbouring

highrise buildings. A parking area is needed to fulfill the city’s legal obligation to replace parking that will be lost at the University of Ottawa campus when the city takes over two areas to stage construction for the light-rail system. But members of the Old Ottawa East community were left scratching their heads wondering why the Lees green space was selected. Were any other sites considered?

The plans for the new parking area are dated August 2012, so why wasn’t the ward councillor and the community notified sooner? Good questions, but we’re still waiting for answers. After he was told about the project, Chernushenko waited two days hoping to receive more details before telling his constituents. But no information was forthcoming from the city. When approached for information by this newspaper,

city staff failed to respond to requests for further details. There might be a very good reason why the green space is the only logical location for the parking lot. And by no means do we expect the city consult with the public regarding every detail of work associated with the $2-billionplus light-rail mega project. But this isn’t a last-minute work order. Staff made their decision last summer and the project takes away a treasured green space from thousands of

residents in Old Ottawa East. Surely that merits a little public consultation? Staff should have known the project would raise concerns in the community. The way this project has been communicated – or rather not communicated – raises a disturbing precedent for how the city handles future impacts of the light-rail project. It’s difficult to judge the city’s rationale for approving projects when staff refuse to talk to either the councillor or the community. We all need to be in the loop when it comes to such a pivotal period in the city’s history.

Surviving the Christmas movie CHARLES GORDON Funny Town

I

t’s not the most wonderful time of year for TV movie-watchers. For the past several weeks every movie has been about Christmas. The Man Who Saved Christmas and The Dog Who Saved Christmas and Crazy for Christmas and The Christmas Miracle and The Christmas Choir and The Christmas This and The Christmas That. Try to find a cowboy or a bank robber and you’re just out of luck. And it’s not as they’re being bumped out by the great Christmas movies – A Christmas Carol, It’s A Wonderful Life and Bad Santa. Today’s Christmas movies aren’t really about Christmas. They’re mostly about people falling in and/or out of love under coloured lights. The list of Christmas movies, usually small-budget productions with small-name casts, grows. They’re eventually going to run out of plots involving misunderstantings and mistletoe. New plots need to reflect the concerns of moviegoers today, show an awareness of current tastes. The Christmas movie needs to be brought up to date. Fortunately, new movie production facilities are being brought to our city. So Ottawa can be at the forefront of this new Christmas movie wave. Here we are then, about to produce the first contemporary Christmas movie with an Ottawa theme. If you’ve been following current cultural trends, you know what it is has to be called. Right: The Christmas Zombie. Now, if you’re writing the script, you know certain things have to happen. First, there have

to be small-name stars who think they hate each other, but we know they don’t. They probably shouldn’t be zombies, because there’s a certain ewwwww factor in zombies under the mistletoe, what with the way parts of them are always falling off. OK, if zombies aren’t under the mistletoe where will they be? An obvious answer is that they are in Parliament, perhaps the Senate. But that wouldn’t work. Senators have to retire at 75 and many zombies are hundreds of years older than that. Also zombies don’t have a principal residence. Well then, the zombies could be in a shopping mall. People are at their most zombie-like there. But this has already been done in Dawn of the Dead. Granted, originality is not something that is particularly prized in the movie world, but let’s look for zombies elsewhere. City hall, for example. Zombies could be occupying the council seats, grunting appreciatively at every mention of a new casino, raising their hands to vote yes, the hands sometimes falling off. Is this too political? Perhaps. Anyway, it doesn’t really cover the Christmas angle, which is important because without a Christmas tree there is nothing for our small-name stars to embrace in front of. We know zombies would probably eat reindeer, so we’ll keep those out of the script. Same with mamma in her kerchief. How about the attacking zombies get frightened by the Christmas tree lights and run away, leaving everybody to be happy, try on sweaters and get married? Or maybe it’s The Little Drummer Boy that drives the zombies away. There are any number of ways you can play this. Christmas songs (not the carols but the kind Michael BublÊ sings) could bring inner peace to the zombies, much as they did to The Grinch, and turn them into likeable characters from High School Musical. The most likely scenario is that the zombies simply decide to leave so they can line up for the Boxing Day sales.

A Christmas tale that is not funny in the least EMC lifestyle - We have two very special ornaments to hang on the tree every year. They belonged to my wife’s grandmother. Nothing flashy or expensive or particularly attractive, even. Kind of gaudy, to be honest. But they are old and they mean a lot to us. More to me than her, I suspect. Maybe because I don’t have any ornaments handed down. We don’t have those two ornaments anymore. We have them and about a million little pieces that used to comprise them. Yes, our two boys managed to bust both just days before Christmas, in the year of our Lord 2012. The little geezers. It happened as all catastrophes happen. A series of misfortunate steps that, in and of themselves, seemed innocuous at the time. (No allusions here to the flaming popcorn pot of ’06 that died on the front lawn.) Mrs. Overdunn was out of the house that afternoon, always an indication that something terribly wrong is about to happen. I verbally yanked said geezers away from the video games; reminded them that the non-virtual world still exists and that some entities within it, such as the dang tree, needed watering. They got the jug of water, as per their usual duty. One of them, Overdunn the Younger,

Derek Dunn Overdunn climbed under the tree to begin feeding the base. Not thinking this a task requiring adult supervision – how much harm can a jug of water cause next to an electrical outlet? – I resumed the all-important work of checking my Facebook account. There was a bit of rustling in the corner, nothing like the sound Clark Griswold heard from the tree moments before a squirrel destroyed his house. And yet, the next thing I heard is the tree crashing down on my precious record player. Looking over, it took a moment for me to realize that the universe has not simply shifted vertically, but that the tree is actually parallel with the floor. It was actually on the

floor, to be more exact; with the crash of who knows how many bulbs and ornaments dancing in my head for an infinite moment. The other one, Overdunn the Elder, has the fear of God splayed across his face. His hand is clutching a pathetic branch. That’s when both boys witness the room fill with expletives the likes of which I care not to repeat. It wasn’t my finest hour. I rush over, irrationally thinking if I lift the tree really, really quickly, somehow it would fix everything that has gone terribly wrong. Surprise. It didn’t work. A bunch of ornaments remained broken. At this point I dare not consider if her grandmothers’ were among the ruins. Being the father, master of my house, and again the one in charge when Mom’s not around, I order the boys to do this and that: you, get the broom and dust pan; you, feel bad for everything that is happening, and get out from under the tree while you do it. After up-righting the tree I order the Elder to hold it steady while I go down to survey the damage. I pulled the dress off and pushed around a few needles. “What would 22-year-old me make of this.” It doesn’t look good. Meanwhile, the Younger’s back

and that all desire is the longing for permanency in an ever-changing and breakable world. The other one was right, too. The one whose birthday we are preparing to celebrate in this, the year of our Lord 2012. Don’t worship material stuff like Christmas trees, and precious Precious the Record player. Even ornaments handed down from a wonderful old lady I was thoroughly smitten with and the love of my life adored beyond recognition. Things break. Things change. She’s gone. That was something I needed to share with the Younger, sobbing in our kitchen. “It wasn’t your fault alone, little buddy. These things happen,” I said, having gotten him to turn my direction to cradle in my arms. “They’re just ornaments. Let’s cherish each other and our relationship and next Christmas we can laugh at all this.” He managed to raise those gorgeous blue eyes to me, made even more brilliant by the water pooled in them. I should have quoted Buddha or Jesus at that moment, but couldn’t muster a thing. See CHRISTMAS, Page 10

with a cloth to sop up water. He busies himself while I listen to a heart beating outside a chest. Poor little bugger. I go back to the top of the tree, hold it up and start eyeing my record player. Did I mention it is precious to me? Somehow the lid was closed, which seemed a good thing at the time. Both hands move to half embrace Precious. She didn’t deserve any of this. That’s when the tree came down a second time. On top of me. So I guess I broke the fall, a bit. I am in a Stuart McLean story over here. Again the bulbs are bursting. By this time the angel fears for her immortal life. How is it she didn’t simply fly off, seek to garnish a safer tree at the neighbour’s? By the end of it - about a five-minute episode that turned our placid domesticity upside down, twice - the three of us have retreated to opposite parts of the house. Stuff like this doesn’t happen on Facebook while scrolling past photos of pets sporting Santa hats and quotes from the Buddha. I’m safe in my refuge on the couch. He was right, though, Buddha was. He was right about how all suffering stems from desire,

“On behalf of my wife, Carol, and I, please allow me to wish you and your family a wonderful Christmas season filled with the joy of friends and loved ones, and a happy New Year.”

smells of a recently stoked wood fire, crisp bacon and strong coffee. I had pancakes made with oatmeal, cottage cheese and egg. Sounds horrible and it is but it balances my blood sugar. And I top them with unsweetened preserves and plain yogurt to make them more palatable. My weekend ritual complete, it’s time

Christmas a time to savour every moment Continued from Page 9

“We won’t laugh this year, of course,” I said. “This year there’s nothing funny about it at all.” It won me a smile, at least. As for the top being down on my record player when I specifically recall leaving it up? That was the Elder’s doing. Again, as I’ve said many times before, he’s a better man than me. He must have slammed it shut before the first crash. Because when I went back to check on her, lifting the lid, I saw the true weight of the calamity. A bunch more bulbs were busted up inside her.

Even a clear P.E.I. bulb, which represents the island Mrs. Overdunn and I left together many moons ago was there. A clear bulb that used to be filled with red, red sand. Sand that as we speak is working it’s way in Precious’ private parts. To my boys: I’m sorry. I was intemperate. I let my growing sentimentalism, being old, get the better of me. I’ll try to remember that this physical world which we meet in is forever in flux, that it is unpredictable and temporal, and that we should appreciate every moment in the moment, especially at Christmas. Oh, and still not funny.

change, because I had wish lists to go from. Just like when they were young, when receiving My Little Pony or Tickle Me Elmo was their wish come true. Except now it’s luggage, cell phones, and gift certificates for clothing. Christmas will be very difficult for several Connecticut families torn apart by the recent school shooting. Maybe that horrific act will remind the rest of us to put resentments and hurt feelings aside over the holidays, and just enjoy each other’s company. I did my second shift of jingling the bells for the Salvation Army on Friday afternoon. Normally I only do one two-hour shift but this year they were short on volunteers and needed more help. As we got closer to Christmas I noticed less people were stopping to put cash in the kettle – but the ones who did were putting in larger amounts. It’s not a time to pass judgment; no need to apologize if you aren’t giving at the kettle. There are many other ways to show people you care during the holiday season. We are constantly being reminded that not everyone celebrates Christmas. And even for those who do recognize the Christian holiday, Christmas isn’t always a happy occasion. Maybe it conjures up bad memories, or just sheds a light on the fact that you can’t afford to celebrate the way other families do.

This is supposed to be a joyful season; not a stressful one. I know as I stood jingling the bells for the Sally Ann, I got so many smiles from people that the ones I gave in return had my face aching like it was my wedding day all over again. But I did see quite a few people with pained expressions, maybe because by Friday afternoon they had just about had enough of work for one week, or maybe there was a more serious reason for their stress. One man in particular caught my eye as he dragged his young son into the store, through the produce section and half an hour later, into the photo shop. The man wasn’t smiling, and his son looked upset. They left just as I was getting up the nerve to say something. On my way home I stopped in at the home of the Avon lady in Oxford Mills to pick up an order. My nerves were still a little jangled by the site of the mean man with his child. Heather cheered me up, though. Her cute little log cabin home was lit by the glow of the wood stove, and her huge smile. She gave me a box of homemade Christmas cookies along with my order. This is what life in a small town is supposed to be like at Christmas. Happy Holidays everyone. Email the Farmwife at dianafisher1@gmail.com

LETTER/OPINION

High speed infrastructure 80% complete in area To the editor: Just a follow up on the article in your Dec. 13 West Carleton Review, by Marla Dowdall, entitled High speed internet access one step closer

for more Eastern Ontario. We (Digital Interiors Inc.) are contract installers for Xplornet Internet Services, one of the private sector partners in the Eastern Ontario Regional Network EORN.

We have successfully finished testing of the second 4G satellite which will serve rural Eastern Ontario and installations have already begun offering residents download speeds up to 5 Mbps.

Xplornet has also upgraded 80 per cent of their wireless towers in the rural Ottawa area including West Carleton to the new 4G standard offering new customers the same level internet access as those in larger cen-

tres with speeds up to 10 Mbps. All remaining tower upgrades should be completed in 2013. Les Schick Digital Interiors Inc. Dunrobin

A rare visitor from the Far North EMC lifestyle - One of the most exciting moments in bird-watching is stumbling across a bird that strayed from some distant place. It can be a species that predictably wanders (such as a Scissor-tailed Flycatcher from the southwestern U.S.A.) or one that appears by happenstance. Last Saturday I encountered the latter. I was scanning Lake Madawaska for ducks from the end of Baskin Drive when I noticed a brown lump on the ice (the lake was partly frozen). Through my spotting scope I could see it was a sleeping duck, but something didn’t look right. I realized the bird was dead, likely frozen overnight during its sleep. I left to search for hawks in fields between Arnprior and Pakenham, and decided to check the lake from the southeast side. I relocated the now very distant duck and was surprised to see a white bird pecking it. Due to distance and terrible

Michael Runtz Nature’s Way heat distortion, I couldn’t discern what kind of bird it was. Snowy Owl, Gyrfalcon, and a gull were likely possibilities, but eventually relative head size and behaviour eliminated the first two. A gull it was, and likely a Herring, the species most expected at this time of year. However, I knew that it could also be a Glaucous or an Iceland, northern gulls that regularly appear here in late fall and winter. Thus, burning

curiosity forced me to return to Baskin Drive to examine the bird from a closer vantage point. When I arrived, the gull was there but facing away from me. However, its small size and large amount of white in the wingtips told me it was not a Herring Gull. When it turned sideways I nearly shouted with joy, for its face bore a black smudge near a small, yellow-tipped bill. The bird was an immature Ivory Gull, the most northern gull in the world! I fumbled for my cell phone to notify other birders and to have the sighting posted on a provincial birding list-serve. Ray Holland from Pakenham was the first to arrive. A few minutes later he and I could not believe what transpired. A Bald Eagle appeared out of nowhere, flushed the gull, grabbed the duck and flew away with it! I phoned a friend to post the surprising update because birders would come from dis-

This Ivory Gull drew crowds of admirers to Arnprior tant places and now the Ivory Gull might well vanish. However, it eventually landed on the ice. I took photos to document its presence. Birders, many from Ottawa, began to arrive. The gull remained in view, and eventually flew toward Highway 29 where it may have flown into

the Ottawa 50-km birding circle, delighting those who passionately keep an Ottawa list. If it indeed crossed the line, it would be Ottawa’s first Ivory Gull. By dark the gull was still sitting on the ice. However, birders arriving at dawn could not find it, and the Ivory Gull was not relocated.

I hope it reappears one more time, that being on Boxing Day during our annual Christmas Bird Count. What better time for a white-feathered stranger from the north to appear! The Nature Number is 613387-2503; email is mruntz@ start.ca.

The cattle are lowing The Baby awakes, But little Lord Jesus No crying He makes. I love Thee, Lord Jesus; Look down from the sky, And stay by my side Until morning is nigh. Be near me Lord Jesus, I ask Thee to stay Close by me forever, And love me, I pray. Bless all the dear children In Thy tender care, And fit us for Heaven, To live with Thee there.

Still through the cloven skies they come With peaceful wings unfurled: And still their heavenly music floats O’er all the weary world; Above its sad and lowly plains They bend on hovering wing. And ever o’er its Babel Sounds The blessed angels sing. And ye, beneath life’s crushing load, Whose forms are bending low, Who toil along the climbing way With painful steps and slow, Look now! for glad and golden hours come swiftly on the wing; O rest beside the weary road, and hear the angels sing. For lo, the days are hastening on, By prophet bards foretold, When with the ever circling years Comes round the age of gold; When peace shall over all the earth Its ancient splendors fling, And the whole world give back the song Which now the angels sing.

Frosty the Snowman was a jolly happy soul, With a corn cob pipe and a button nose and two eyes made out of coal.

Merry Christmas from

Frosty the Snowman is a fairy tale they say, He was made of snow but the children know how he came to life one day. There must have been some magic in that old silk hat they found, For when they placed it on his head he began to dance around.

Oh Frosty the Snowman was alive as he could be, and the children say he could laugh and play just the same as you and me. Thumpety thump thump, thumpety thump thump, look at Frosty go. Thumpety thump thump, thumpety thump thump, Over the hills and snow.

They looked up and saw a star Shining in the east, beyond them far, And to the earth it gave great light, And so it continued both day and night. And by the light of the same star, Three wisemen came from country far; To seek for a king was their intent, And to follow the star wherever it went. This star drew nigh to the north-west, Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;er Bethlehem it took its rest, And there it did both stop and stay, Right over the place where Jesus lay.

Ottawa’s elementary school teachers stage one-day strike ‘It’s about democracy; it’s not about money’ Blair Edwards blair.edwards@metroland.com

EMC news - Elementary schools across Ottawa were shut down on Dec. 12 as thousands of teachers with the English public school board held a one-day strike to protest Bill 115. The legislation gives the education minister the power to impose a contract on thousands of workers if unions and school boards can’t reach local agreements before Dec. 31. Modelled on an agreement the province reached with the unions representing Catholic teachers, the bill freezes wages, ends the banking of sick days and cuts other benefits. The unions say it strips members of their democratic right to collectively bargain a new contract. Teachers picketed outside 63 Ottawa elementary schools as well as outside the public board office and the offices of six area MPPs. The walkout of teachers from 117 schools in the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board was one of several rotating strikes held across the province last week. PICKET LINE

At Stephen Leacock Public School in Beaverbrook, a group of 19 full- and part-time teachers carried handmade signs protesting Bill 115, legislation they say takes away their collective bargaining rights. Money was never an issue, said Sue Bingham, the picket captain for teachers at Stephen Leacock. “We had already agreed to a pay freeze,” she said. “It was never about a pay freeze.” Sick leave was another sore point. “We have sick children coming to school,” said Bingham. “Teachers get sick. Some of them have already used up a lot of their sick

days for the year because they only have 10.” Picketers drank hot coffee and paced in front of their schools, trying to keep warm with temperatures hovering around -10 C. At W. Erskine Johnston, teachers gauged their support by the number of honks from passing motorists. “Twenty nine,” said one picketer after a car passed by Wednesday morning. “Thirty one,” corrected another picketer walking beside her. But while the teachers are out on the picket lines, the education minister is being urged by her colleagues to use the legislation affords her. “I feel obligated as official Opposition critic to remind you of your responsibilities as minister and the tools that you have at your disposal within Bill 115 to re-impose some semblance of order in our schools,” Nepean-Carleton MPP MacLeod wrote in an open letter to Education Minister Laurel Broten. DEADLINE

In a statement released by the education minister’s office, Premier Dalton McGuinty said a legal one-day strike action didn’t warrant the government’s intervention. “It is worth noting that while students will miss an entire day of class, and teachers will spend one entire day on the picket line and lawyers will spend weeks preparing their case, (teachers union) leadership have spent less than an hour in the last 10 months at the negotiating table, which I continue to believe is the best place to resolve the issue,” McGuinty said. Broten has said the provincial government will impose a new contract on thousands of teachers and support staff if their unions don’t negotiate deals by the end of the month. Ottawa-Carleton Elementary Teachers’ Fed-

eration president Peter Giuliani scoffed at the deadline. “Apparently we all turn into pumpkins on Dec. 31,” he said. “That is a completely artificial deadline. She made it up because her first deadline, which was Aug. 31, was so laughable that she had to step back from it. “She’s going to do what she’s going to do,” said Giuliani, speaking outside W.Erskine Johnston Public School, where he made a brief stop to talk to picketers.

Scam lures residents to be mystery shopper Jessica Cunha jessica.cunha@metroland.com

EMC news - Ottawa police are warning residents of a letter scam. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;mystery shopperâ&#x20AC;? fraud targets residents by sending them a letter containing a cheque from a well-known bank. The cheque is invalid and by the time the scam is realized, the recipient is held responsible for the outstanding funds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The letter encourages the recipient to participate in a mystery shopper opportunity in return for cash,â&#x20AC;? said the police in a release. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The recipient is asked to cash the cheque and transfer a portion of it to another account â&#x20AC;&#x201C; (the) account number provided by the company.â&#x20AC;? If a person follows the instructions, it makes them an accessory to the offence. The victim is encouraged to keep the remaining portion of the cheque as payment â&#x20AC;&#x153;for acting as a mystery shopper

assessing the customer service received at the bank,â&#x20AC;? said police. At least two people in the Kanata area have reported the scam, said Const. Lori Fahey of the Kanata/Stittsville community police centre. Fahey said people can report fraudulent letters to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre by calling 1888-495-8501. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Be cautious of all unsolicited correspondence and sales,â&#x20AC;? she said. If a person has suffered a financial loss, then they are asked to file a report with police by calling 613-236-1222, ext. 7300. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Call it in,â&#x20AC;? Fahey said, adding sending an email to an officer isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the same as filing a report. Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson discussed the problem at her ward council meeting on Nov. 26. A resident reported receiving one of the letters. She said she and her husband contact-

ed the bank listed on the cheque and were told it was a scam. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(The police) have had several complaints about it,â&#x20AC;? said Wilkinson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If something seems to good to be true, it is too good to be true.â&#x20AC;? VIRUS

Fahey said sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s received complaints of another scam involving Internet providers, computer programs and virus detection. A caller pretending to be from a well-known company with a call centre based in Asia or India will call people and tell them a virus has been detected on their computer. The caller asks the target to go to a website where they can download anti-virus protection software for $49 and asks for the targetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s credit card information over the phone or through the website. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got your money and

you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get anything,â&#x20AC;? said Fahey. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very difficult to trace it.â&#x20AC;? She said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to research all companies before doing business. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Do not provide personal information over the phone,â&#x20AC;? said Fahey. AGGRESSIVE

Fahey added there have been reports of insistent hot water tank rental representatives going door-to-door. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People are finding them very aggressive,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you ask them to leave and they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, give us a call.â&#x20AC;? It can be intimidating to have a person like that at the door, but, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Your front door is yours so feel free to close it to unwanted solicitation,â&#x20AC;? said Fahey. To report aggressive sales people who will not leave, call 613-230-6211.

EMC news – The author of the self-help book You Can Rejoin Joy offers a list of ways to start 2013 on the right foot. Dr. Gerald Young, a practicing psychologist and Associate Professor of Psychology at Glendon College, says the start of the New Year lends itself to a start of a new you. His resolution suggestions include: • Change stress. Try seeing it differently; evaluate how it enters your life and what personal processes are involved. • Change mental blocks that inhibit improvement. Try regular reflecting to recognize needed changes. • Change mental insecurity. Practice new ways, paths and habits of thinking. • Change mental imbalances. Pull back on negative thoughts and pull hard on the positive.

world was in those days. People thought nothing of dying for their cause. They fought for the tribe, not for personal advancement. “Today there is no ideology. There is no support of the culture. They go wherever the wind blows,” she said. “It is freedom without guidance. They are healthy, well off, have physical well-being. So they emulate hockey or rock stars.” Hence anyone at the time, say Sidlauskas, who claimed be “neither this nor that,” posed a threat to numerous factions. She stood for individualism, maybe even humanism. But what she didn’t stand for was the rising nationalism that was infecting the scouting movement. “They resented me not abiding by their rules. I was nature oriented. They said, ‘Either you are straight or out of school’ and that I would lose my scholarship. I should have been smart,” she said, laughing. Then, growing serious, “To me it was an injustice, what was happening to the Jews.” She was sent home before the Christmas break to tell her family of her expulsion from school. Everyone broke out in tears. That day is forever frozen in Sidlauskas’ heart.

NE

Agatha Sidlauskas was born in Lithuania in 1914, the seventh of nine children. It was a country that for hundreds of years imported its identity from neighbouring powers, meant to feel like little more than a bartering chip among feuding parents. Far from the cultural capitals of Paris and Berlin, it was a novelty to see a bicycle in the world of her childhood. Electricity was no-existent. Tending to chores, the rites of church – these were paramount. It was a world that shunned girls attending school. It was a world of high expectations and few opportunities. Her family was faithful to one another in that close-knit community. Her mother and older brothers heard her “screams for school” and, evidently, listened. An older brother decided he need not attend school. She could take his place. Doc’s father was an ambitious solider in the proletarian Russian army, a decent enough man. But absent. “I never saw him,” she recalls without bitterness. “He came home long enough to produce a baby.”

She showed some promise in her formal studies. Although a well-rounded student, Sidlauskas was something of a methodological student. Nevertheless, it was in those early observations of a small classroom with kids of various ages and aptitudes working together, helping one another, that resonated long enough to germinate; not the formal learning. That, and a special young woman that took an interest in Sidlauskas, would provide the foundation for a groundbreaking career in the field of education. The bright and eager student outgrew her local school. She had to say goodbye to her family and beloved animals for a larger institute of learning in a nearby town. There she continued to excel as the world of literature and the great minds of the past introduced themselves. But Sidlauskas didn’t digress into the existential angst that plagued many cosmopolitan academics like Jean-Paul Sartre at the time. She retained the rural person’s pragmaticism, and valued friendship and even served as something of a magnet for peers. And while she had “quite a few suitors,” she stayed true to her true love: the sciences. “I always formed very deep relationships,” she said. “I was a passionate scout and had an international interest in social ideology.” It is difficult to imagine how extraordinarily political the

Dr. Agatha Sidlauskas has many devote proteges, including Venta principal Marilyn Mansfield. The two have worked side by side going back to the days they were teacher and student. Part of Sidlauskas’ success over the years, both personally and professionally, has to do with developing meaningful relationships. It even played a role in saving her life during the Second World War.

SO P CO HISTI MF CA OR TED T

EMC news – In many ways it is easy to look at Dr. Agatha Sidlauskas as she sits warming by the woodstove and see a little old lady, 98, who was pushed and pulled by the whirlwind of events in the early 20th century. The lines run deep across her face; thick yet frail hands tremble slightly, inadvertently; darkness flashes over her at the recollection of certain events. The institutions, ideologies and war machines that crushed with repugnant indifference many people in Sidlauskas’ childhood situation - innocents scratching out a life in peasant villages between Eastern Europe and western U.S.S.R. - somehow mercifully spared her. That first impress would give way moments after beginning a conversation that would last for hours and hours, exhausting an interviewer less than half her age, while sitting in “Doc’s House” on the campus of the Carp private school she founded some 30 years ago. She is an old soul in a young spirit. “Doc,” as her devote protégés and countless students call her at Venta Preparatory School, know this to be true. They see the grey eyes sparkle with life, kindly yet shrewd. They hear her speak even today with great clarity and precision on many topics. No, her would-be killers way back then were not merciful. They did not spare anyone, let alone a renegade from the intelligentsia. No. She simply outsmarted them. Doc’s always been proud of her street smarts, almost as much as her book smarts. The fascists in Europe couldn’t scare the latter out of her. The neo-cons today who vilify academics are even less likely to have an effect. The only creatures that made Doc think twice about attending school were of the bird-brain variety: geese the little peasant girl raised as part of her chores. “I was crying because I had to leave my animals. Here, people cannot have an idea what I went through as a child.”

School founder expelled as a student Continued from Page 31

less children and their families from a lifetime of misery. But none of that mattered much. She was a domestic helper with two trunks of foreign language books. She became a nurse’s aid, finding herself a spot in the General Hospital in Ottawa. She worked with kids at the hospital. In 1951 she found herself teaching at the University of Ottawa. “I connected with the children and found some success,” she said. Then, a Belgian woman with a child at Rockcliffe Park Public School approached Sidlauskas. Doc seemed to connect with international folks: diplomats, business people. It was decided that the school needed a psychiatrist, something almost unheard of in its day. Until then, the only interest show in youths was when it came to physical abnormalities, not mental giftedness. Doc resumed her testing. “There were children who were bright but suffering. They had no joie de vivre,” she said. “Something had to be done.”

“The whole family was crying,” she recalls. “But they let it be. We were a very united family. And eventually, privately, it was worked out that I would go to another city.” It was thanks to a fellow student, a boy who knew of her talents, whom she had developed a strong friendship, that found her a spot in another school. The next great challenge to face Sidlauskas came in the form of an opportunity to study the newly emerging “experimental psychology” in Italy. She would become a Phd candidate in a nation where she didn’t speak a word of the native tongue. WAR IS COMING

Not knowing a language never deterred Doc from mastering it. When she arrived at Pier 21 in Halifax, many years later, a refugee with two trunk loads of books and scarcely a dime to her name, she didn’t worry about learning English. After all, she figured out Italian by reading passages from three different Bibles: one in Lithuanian, one in German (of which she had a tentative grasp), and one in Italian. It was an example of her street smarts and book smarts binding together. But a learned person would need more than smarts to see them through the dark clouds that loomed over Europe in the days ahead. They needed friends. The Second World War was approaching. The far right fascists were rounding up minorities and far left communists were carting off dissenters. Both were after the academics, especially academics who considered themselves citizens of the world. In 1939, partly for the money and partly for protection, she began working for the Italian embassy in her home country. She proved herself “sturdy, mentally” and earned the confidence of the ambassador. Meanwhile, war was breaking out all over – including her far away little village. Russians were flooding into Lithuania, killing thousands; 800,000 were deported to the gulags in Siberia. Sidlauskas’ own family dispersed; sisters hid in the woods; her father died in the army. Eventually her mother succumbed. Sidlauskas wasn’t living the easy life. KGB agents interrogated her, placed a revolver on the table and accused her of being a spy. She managed to convince them otherwise, though they demanded she cough up the names of traitors. With the help of her boss, for an entire month Sidlauskas would feed them names of friends and colleagues she already knew had fled the country. Death crept closer with every passing day. “If he’d left, I’d be dead.” Then, suddenly, the ambassador whisked her to safety in a vehicle with diplomatic plates. She was granted diplomatic immunity. She found herself once again in Milan, from 1940 to 1948, where she was free to pursue her passion for the relatively unknown study of child psychology.

Sidlauskas belongs to an elite group of educators. Herself, Maria Montessori, and perhaps Mary Ainsworth are pioneers in their field. In a time when most western theorists held that a child was a tableau rasa (clean slate) which experience writes itself upon, these women took a more nuanced approach. Feminist thinkers would say it was their willingness to validate the relationships they developed with subjects, i.e. children, and their embrace of a holistic view – meaning a break between brain and mind, or spirit and body – that enabled them to find success. Whatever the answer, Doc is pleased to say children thrive at her modest school in Carp. She is fond of painting the image of a troubled boy who seeks his mother’s attention by ripping flowers out of the garden. She fawns over the flowers, showers them with love and affection. The boy is simply asking for something similar. If he can’t get positive attention, he’ll accept negative. After all, the child is a flower with roots in its body and sun and wind and rain as its experiences. “The mother is narrow-minded, but not on purpose,” she said. The mother can only teach how she was taught. “But every flower is beautiful in its own way.”

Capital campaign another chapter in Venta story

DR. AGATHA SIDLAUSKAS She completed a masters’ thesis on children who were not able to proceed on an academic level. School failures. She worked on psychiatric wards where child patients lived, suffering from “organic problems.” She learned psychoanalysis by working with the children. She developed tests to determine their level of intelligence and histories. She eventually found herself teaching child psychology to masters students. One child stood out during this time of her life. He was a good boy from a nice family. Yet he never learned to speak. “And in the wisdom of the school, they sent him to an institute. He was five years old,” she said. Her mother begged Sidlauskas to see him in the south of Italy. She agreed. “As we appeared in the door, I could see the little boy’s eyes go big – he was in ecstasy to see his mother,” she recalls. “And the mother was in tears. ‘He doesn’t belong here,’ I told her. ‘Where is he to go?’ she said.” Institutions are no substitution for the love a good mother, Sidlaushas decided.

EMC news – Venta Preparatory School is a small private school with big dreams. The school, founded and opened in 1981 by Dr. Agatha Sidlauskas in Carp, is undertaking a major capital campaign to expand and improve the private educational facility. Since that time, there have been changes and additions to the originally buildings but the time has come to build a new school The capital campaign, entitled ‘Let the Talent Soar’, will require support from internal as well as external sources. Highlights include: • new school entrance to be known as the great hall

• 10 new classrooms • new art studio • fully-equipped science lab • refurbished music room • language laboratory/resource centre and tutorial centre • large dining hall • a new student residence with recreation area, house/parent apartment • improve work area for staff To learn more about Venta Preparatory School’s campaign campaign or to donate, contact Sue Wilson at swilson@ventaprep.com or by calling 613-719-9940.

A NEW LIFE

Sidlauskas emigrated to Canada, settling in early 1950s Montreal, a place condescending to DPs (displaced persons.) At the time, Germans were considered acceptable because they worked hard, ironically enough. Italians were only good for running restaurants. People from obscure nations like Lithuania were left to view their adopted land as “rather bleak.” “Everybody was happy. I was crying.” Her country was trapped behind the Iron Curtain. On the professional front, she had strong views on gifted yet troubled children being sent away from their families to institutions. She had numerous ideas on how to save count-

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great opportunity and I hope I get a lot from it,â&#x20AC;? smiles Langwa, who admits he was surprised the pro club selected him after attending a trial this past sum- mer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d actually ask me.â&#x20AC;? One man who isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the slightest bit surprised is Abe Osman, his coach this past season with the Force U14 boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Ontario Youth Soccer League team. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an outstanding player â&#x20AC;&#x201C; one of the best Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen in a long time,â&#x20AC;? Osman says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We showed him a little bit, but heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got a lot of natural talent. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s blessed with a lot of skill.â&#x20AC;? Langwa sticks out on the pitch compared to others immediately simply due to his physique, and it surely only takes a moment longer before he makes a big impact on the game. The left-footed striker co-led the OYSL in scoring this season with 22 goals in 16 games. It didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hurt that four of those markers came in a game against Brampton East â&#x20AC;&#x201C; who allowed more than one goal on just four other occasions all season â&#x20AC;&#x201C; when a TFC scout was watching. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some games against provincial players â&#x20AC;&#x201C; weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not talking just the average, regular defender â&#x20AC;&#x201C; he man- handled them,â&#x20AC;? Osman highlights, praising Langwaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s relentless work ethic. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was manhandling guys in our age group and he was manhandling guys when he got called up to the older age group.â&#x20AC;&#x153;Zoom had an incredible year.â&#x20AC;? Langwa will live with the family of a team- mate from Toronto once he moves there, and will train at TFCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new $17.5 million facility in Downsview Park. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a really big change. My parents didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really want me to move,â&#x20AC;? laughs Langwa, explaining that eventually they decided it was an opportunity he couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pass up. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to play professional. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s my life goal really.â&#x20AC;? The Grade 9 Sacred Heart Catholic High School student carries many great memories from his time with OSU, including his teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s undefeated campaign last year where they won the East Region Soccer League and the ER Cup. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t play with TFC, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be playing with those guys,â&#x20AC;? he underlines. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a great group of guys and a lot of fun to be around.â&#x20AC;? Langwa also feels thankful for the role OSU played in his development. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great club. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of great coaches,â&#x20AC;? he says, signaling his appreciation to general manager Jim Lianos for helping to create the link to TFC. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Without them, I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be where I am today.â&#x20AC;? OSU President Bill Michalopulos was pleased for both Langwa and the club as a whole to see his development into an elite talent. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Zoom is unique. He exemplifies a lot about what OSU is. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a competitor, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s determined,â&#x20AC;? Michalopulos states. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is also a testament of OSUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard work in showcasing our players and providing them the best possible technical programs to help Zoom and all our players reach their maximum potential. The club is very proud.â&#x20AC;?

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Nov. 19 to 23 was Bully Awareness week at St. Michael Catholic School in Fitzroy Harbour. Our goals were to raise awareness, enforce the Golden Rule and share our personal experiences on this critical issue. Day one we gathered as a community to discuss what bully awareness was all about, what we will do and the lessons we can learn by weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s end. On Tuesday the â&#x20AC;&#x153;sevens and eightsâ&#x20AC;? took the lead in assisting the K-6 grades with numerous exciting activities. We did icebreakers, traced our hands on a banner and shared story books written by our peers. Then it was time for wear purple Wednesday. All those dressed in purple gathered in front of the school for a group photo to support the cause. Throughout the week all students tried their best to come up with Bully Prevention Posters which were put up in the halls for all to admire. On the final day everyone gathered in the gym to go over what we learned throughout the week. As a final wrap up we watched videos, watched a bullying themed talent show and held a â&#x20AC;&#x153;funeral for a

So grieve a while for me if you must Then let your grief be comforted by trust. It’s only for a while that we must part. So bless the memories within your heart.

You’ll hear all my love around you, Soft and clear, and then when you must Come this way alone, I’ll greet you with a smile and say “Welcome home”.

With tearful eyes we watched you We watched you fade away Although we loved you dearly, We could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating, Hard-working hands at rest God broke our hearts to prove to us, He chose to take the best. It’s lonesome here without you We miss you more each day Life doesn’t seem the same Since you have gone away. When days are sad and lonely And everything goes wrong, We seem to hear you whisper “Cheer Up and Carry On”. Each time we see your picture You seem to smile and say, “Don’t cry, I’m in God’s hands, We’ll meet again someday!” Love you, Sherri, Jay, Jesse and Brandy Varcoe DEATH NOTICE

Amber ale nets Kichesippi beer gold Steph Willems steph.willems@metroland.com

EMC news - An Ottawabased brewery is basking in the rich, amber glow of success after winning a gold medal at the 2012 World Beer Championships. Kichesippi Beer Companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1855 brew took the top position in the amber ale category at the annual event, held in Chicago last month. The name of the beer pays tribute to the national capital; 1855 being the year Ottawa was incorporated as a city, shedding its original name of Bytown. The award is a major feather in the cap of the Kichesippi brewery. After less than three years in business, it has already amassed considerable acclaim for its original brew, Natural Blonde. That beer took home bronze in the World Beer Championshipsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; golden ale category, having also won bronze at the Canadian Brewing Awards held in June. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re up against a category at the championships,â&#x20AC;? said co-owner Paul Meek. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When your product scores 90 to 94 points, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s considered gold. Over 95 is considered platinum, though theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve only ever awarded three platinums. This year, we were the only beer to hit gold in the amber ale category.â&#x20AC;? The 1855 brew was created as a one-off batch to celebrate Kichesippiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ rst anniversary on April 29, 2011. However,

SUBMITTED

The staff of Kichesippi Beer Company is seen at their brewery, located at 866 Campbell Ave. in Ottawa. Recently the company took home a gold medal from the 2012 World Beer Championships for their â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;1855â&#x20AC;&#x2122; amber ale. those who tasted it liked it a lot and the crew at Kichesippi realized they had a winner on their hands. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It quickly took off,â&#x20AC;? explained Meek. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People liked it, and we made it a full-time beer. Our customers have also said how much they like it, so we decided to take it for a spin at the Championships.â&#x20AC;? Kichesippiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s birth in 2010 heralded the arrival of a local brewing scene in the Ottawa area, with other locally-produced and local-themed beers soon entering the market. Clearly the time was right to start up a brewery, as consumersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; taste buds were beginning to yearn for something new

and adventurous, not just the same-old, same-old. The fact the beer is made in Ottawa holds extra appeal for many beer fans. A little knowledge â&#x20AC;&#x201C; such as the fact a dark beer (like 1855) neednâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be heavy and unrefreshing â&#x20AC;&#x201C; goes a long way in stopping beer drinkers from avoiding brews they fear they might not like. Currently, Kichesippi products can be found at 120 restaurants and bars in the greater Ottawa area and in 35 provincial liquor stores. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If a customer is willing to give us a tap, we want to make sure theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re taken care of,â&#x20AC;? said Meek.

Maryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Christmas surprise made her rethink her beliefs EMC lifestyle - That Christmas I was a year older, and a lot wiser. I tried not to think of the past Christmas. The Christmas Eve when I found out there really wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a Santa Claus. I had heard rustling downstairs in the middle of the night, and crept down the stairwell to see my sister eating the cookies I had left out for Santa, and the kitchen table covered with tissue paper, and gifts being wrapped ... not by Santa, but by Father. It was the year Mother had to spend the holiday in the Renfrew hospital, and it was sad enough for me without discovering there really was no Santa after all. I told no one what I had seen. And I had kept the secret locked in my heart for the entire year. And so that Christmas, I tried to act excited. It would spoil it for everyone if they thought I no longer believed in Santa Claus. I was told to be good, or Santa would pass by our old log house in Northcote! Eat everything on your plate ... you know Santa doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like little girls who waste food! And so it went all those days before Christmas. And I kept my secret buried deep in my heart. Time and again Mother said money was scarcer than ever that year. Turkey Fair day

hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been as good as other years. The Depression was at its worse. But nonetheless, I was told to write my letter to Santa. My sister Audrey told me not to ask for anything that would be considered frivolous. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Remember, it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t only our family that is poor. Everyone in the entire world is poor,â&#x20AC;? Audrey said with conviction. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Santa wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be able to bring everything you ask for, so be careful what you put in your letter,â&#x20AC;? she said. Little did my sister know that my belief in Santa had, a year ago, come to an end. And so pretending to be in deep concentration, I sat at the old pine table early in December and printed out my Christmas wishes in a letter to Santa. I wanted long white stockings just like bad Marguerite wore, I asked for a wood pencil box like my little friend Joyce had. But what I wanted more than anything in the whole world, was a pair of store-bought shoes. I had running shoes for the summer, but in the winter I had to wear boys brown laced brogues. And Mother didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to buy them. They came in the hand-me-down box Aunt Lizzie sent regularly from Regina. They were the ugliest shoes I had ever clapped eyes on. Decidedly boys, and when they arrived, they looked like

Mary Cookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Memories BY MARY COOK

they had hardly been on anyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s feet. And how I hated them. But I was the only one the shoes would fit. They were much too small for any of my three brothers, and my sister Audrey, 11 years my senior, certainly couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be expected to wear boys shoes to the Northcote School. And so I was the one to get the hateful shoes. And so that year, I put in my letter to Santa that I would be very grateful for a pair of store-bought girlâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shoes. And I underlined â&#x20AC;&#x153;girlâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s.â&#x20AC;? I knew full well there was no Santa to read of my Christmas wish, but nonetheless I dutifully wrote the letter, which Mother would make a great pretence of mailing at Briscoeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s General Store. All the time I knew asking for something as costly as store-bought shoes was an exercise in futility. I would be very lucky if I got a small toy from the Five and Dime Store in Renfrew. After all, hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Mother warned us that

HOLIDAY HOURS

it would be a lean Christmas that year? And as Christmas day drew near, I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know the excitement of other years. Knowing what I did, took a lot of the joy out of the holiday for me. Of course, no one knew my feelings, having kept my secret for a year. Christmas morning chores had to be done, breakfasts eaten, and we had to be dressed for church before we could go to the tree. As had been the custom for the past few years, the tree was in the kitchen rather than in the small parlour that was as cold as an ice house in the winter. Under the tree was an array

of presents wrapped in green or red tissue paper, and as usual Father took on the job of handing them out. There was a book for each of us. I have no idea where Mother got the money, but every Christmas and every birthday, we five children could count on getting a book. And there was a new bright red ball for my game of Jacks. And there wrapped in red paper was my first pair of long white stockings! I was so thrilled, I paid no attention to the box Father put at my knee. I had never had white stockings before, and I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait until I could rip off the beige ribbed ones I had put on when I got dressed, because I would be wearing the white ones to church! Father nudged the box towards me, but I was too excited about the white stockings to pay it much heed. Imagine! White stockings! Finally, I opened the box beside me, and there inside was a brand new pair of store-

bought shoes! Black leather, they were. No laces! Audrey said they were called pumps. I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t care what they were called. I had my very first pair of store bought shoes! Mother looked as pleased as I felt ... almost as if she were looking at them for the very first time. I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop admiring my Christmas gifts long enough to wonder where the money came from for new stockings, and new shoes. I rubbed my hands over the soft leather in the pumps, and put the stockings up to my nose to smell their newness. And lost in the joy of these new treasures, treasures I had never owned before, I wondered, maybe I was wrong. Maybe there was a Santa Claus after all! May I take this opportunity to wish everyone the most wonderful of Christmases, and may all of you remember its true meaning, and rejoice with loved ones around you.

Three Habitat volunteers honoured with Jubilee medals EMC news - At the Habitat for Humanity Canada National Conference in Toronto last week, three Habitat for Humanity National Capital Region volunteers – Cynthia Herman, Roger Short and Johannes Ziebarth – recognized with the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal for their exceptional contributions in furthering Habitat’s mission to build affordable housing and promote homeownership as a means to breaking the cycle of poverty. “These people have made

Habitat NCR what it is today,” said Donna Hicks, CEO of Habitat for Humanity NCR. “We all rely on the efforts of people like this who selflessly put others before themselves to make Habitat for Humanity and our community a better place.” Johannes Ziebarth, a Nepean-area resident who is the president of Habitat NCR’s board of directors, serves as the CEO for Paul Ziebarth Electrical Contractors Ltd. Ziebarth, who has been involved with Habitat NCR

since its inception in 1993, started out by personally wiring every Habitat home in the National Capital Region. As his company grew, he regularly committed as many as 28 electricians, who routinely volunteer their time to wire an entire house while supplying the electrical materials needed. Ziebarth’s solid understanding of the building industry and his extensive leadership experience make him an invaluable champion and resource for our organization.

Cynthia Herman, an Orléans resident, has been a dedicated volunteer at Habitat NCR for more than eight years. A faithful contributor at the affiliate’s main office for at least two days each week, Herman plays a vital role as administrative support, special events assistant and photographer. As an organization that routinely relies on volunteer assistance in the office, at events and on the build site, Cynthia’s work ethic, dedication, energy and cheerful attitude make her stand out in the crowd. Roger Short is a retired high school teacher who has been a valued volunteer with Habitat NCR for more than eight years. The Glebe-area resident has been involved with all aspects of Habitat NCR, including volunteering on 15 of our home builds and retrofits, serving in ReStores, contributing to

ReStore, volunteer and build committees and representing the organization as an official spokesperson. Short is a respected member of our volunteer contingent whose dedication, reliability, knowledgeable advice and quiet confidence have made an invaluable contribution to our organization. “The recipients who are honoured by this medal have made Canada better,” said Gov. Gen. David Johnston at the inaugural presentation ceremony of the Diamond Jubilee Medal. “Individually, they have improved the well-being of many in our communities, and together, they have helped to create a smarter, more caring nation. They represent a mosaic of individual experiences and accomplishments. Like Her Majesty, they inspire others to take up the call to service.”

SUBMITTED

Recipients Cynthia Herman and Johannes Ziebarth were two of the three individuals who received Jubilee medals for their work with Habitat for Humanity. Roger Short was the third recipient of the award.

Order of Ottawa

What’s for

On Nov. 22 Mayor Jim Watson and Coun. Eli El-Chantiry presented the Order of Ottawa to Terry Kelly for his over 40 years of service to the community as a volunteer fire fighter.

Almonte train crash memorial held Dec. 20

DEREK DUNN/METROLAND

West Carleton Country Kitchen Join us at the table for a festive session of the West Carleton Country Kitchen. This season, the West Carleton Country Kitchen is giving back, and would like to invite all interested community members to come out and participate. The group will be making and freezing tortieres for clients of the West Carleton Food Aid to pick up in 2013, when the holidays have passed. As always, participants are welcomed and encouraged to stay for lunch (a small donation is suggested). We will be enjoying a pie ourselves, along with salad and a festive (non-alcoholic) drink. This event has been made possible by generous donations from St. Paul’s United Church in Carp and from Bruce and Liz Hudson. The event will be held at the Fitzroy Harbour Community Centre on December 8, starting at 10am. Country Kitchen is a volunteer-run collective cooking program bringing together members of the rural community to prepare, cook, and eat nutritious and budget-conscious meals. For more information, or to confirm your participation please connect with Gail Carroll at 613.839.3978 or by email at thecarrolls@xplornet.com.

EMC events - One of the worst train accidents in Canadian history occurred in Almonte on Dec.27, 1942, exactly 70 years ago. A special train carrying Canadian soldiers for overseas service struck the rear of a stationary train crowded with holiday passengers, demolishing the three rear coaches. The number known to have died was 39 and more than 150 were injured. The North Lanark Historical Society and the Town of Mississippi Mills invite you to join us the evening of Dec. 20, as we honour the victims and those who came to their rescue. The passengers and soldiers who survived the crash worked alongside town rescuers. A number of the survivors are still living and several have contacted us and will be joining us for the memorial. One of the survivors, who was 5 years old at the time, has called and plans to be there. It is at 7 p.m., at the Memorial Monument Site, corner of Mill and Bridge streets. The evening will begin with a few words of welcome followed by a special candle lighting tribute. Guests are then invited to join us in the Almonte Old Town Hall Auditorium for a reception, entertainment and a performance by a team of professional storytellers. Ruth Stewart-Verger and Donna Stewart will use a combination of research and first-hand information to tell their story of the Almonte Train Crash of 1942. Johnny Spinks will sing Mac Beatty’s ‘Train Wreck at Almonte’ song. For more information please contact Tiffany MacLaren 613256-1077 or Doreen Wilson 613-256-2866.

Every penny adds up for charity

SUBMITTED

Kinburn seniors dinner The Kinburn and District Seniors Club met on Dec. 5 at the Kinburn Community Centre. It was the annual Christmas dinner and new president Gerry Levesque was welcomed in by past presidents. Among those at the event are Bill Duncan, left, Glenn Eastman, Jack Shaw, Judith Waddell, Gerry Levesque, Betty Dowd. A great turkey dinner catered by the Leather Works from Almonte was enjoyed by 63 members in attendance. Rick Leben played the key board for an hour of seasonal caroling.

EMC news - Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind relies greatly on its Collection Dog program to raise funds. The life-sized guide dog models are a familiar site in many communities, placed in businesses as a fundraiser. They are most often seen in supermarkets, grocery stores and discount department stores. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The collection dogs are an example of how every penny adds upâ&#x20AC;? according to Steven Doucette of Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For more than two decades, children have put their loose change into these dogs and the majority of coins have been pennies. These pennies have been a huge source of revenue and have contributed greatly to our organization training guide dogs for visually impaired Canadians.â&#x20AC;? The Royal Canadian Mint stopped production of the penny in May 2012 and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a decision that will likely affect Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind. The registered Canadian charity has trained more than 700 guide dog teams from coast to coast since 1984. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not having pennies readily available could discourage people from dropping coins into our collection dogs,â&#x20AC;? says Doucette. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been lucky to receive higher de-

nominations over the years too, but the elimination of the penny will significantly impact our revenue. We operate solely through donations, and it will be interesting to see how this affects us in 2013.â&#x20AC;? Rounding up or down will not make a huge difference to the average person, although it will likely take some getting used to. Perhaps nickels and dimes will become unimportant to many now. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the hope of Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hopefully, instead of putting in five pennies, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll make it up a nickel at a time,â&#x20AC;? says Doucette. In the meantime, Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind would be happy to take your pennies. You can drop them into a collection dog at a store close to you. For the nearest location, you can contact Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind at 613-692-7777 or email events@ guidedogs.ca. Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind was established as a registered charity in 1984. Since that time, Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind has provided professionally trained guide dogs to Canadians who are visually impaired.

Doâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ts for pets during the Christmas holidays EMC lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house not a creature was stirring not even a mouse. The cats were all brushed and the doggies shaved and all were oh so well behaved. With a dusting of snow on the ground, the smell of pine from the Christmas tree (to pee on), eggnog and hot chocolate (to spill) and the smell of fresh cinnamon in the air you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help but noticed itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Christmas. Although a beautiful time of year,

it can also be a very dangerous one for your pets with so much tempting them from food to decorations. Although the decorations on the tree look like fun, they can be very dangerous. Some ornaments are made from glass. If ornaments fall off the tree and break, they can cut the pads on there feet and be fatal if swallowed. Tinsel is a beautiful addition to a Christmas tree. However, if swallowed it can cause major tummy problems not to mention the colourful bowel movements they produce.

The Christmas tree itself can be a hazard. Make sure it is in a place that can be closed off because pets love to play in and around them. Getting tangled in the electrical cord and watching all of your hard work come crashing down is a site to see not to mention dangerous. Also be careful with the food. Chocolate contains Methylxanthines, Theobromine and Caffeine. If you believe your pet has ingested large amounts of chocolate, consult your veterinarian for more information. Onions and celery can also be a health concern for your pets. If you must include your

Pet Adoptions

pets in the merriment of the season, remember that chicken and turkey bones can cut up their stomachs. Chicken and turkey bones can also cause choking. Alcohol should not be given to your pets and if you want to prevent stomach upset keep them away from rich, heavy foods. Treat them with a piece of meat, fat and skin removed and free of sauces and gravy. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be happy, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be happy and so will your carpets. Plants can be very dangerous as well. For example: Holly â&#x20AC;&#x201C; This ornamental plant is a common Christmas fixture. Holly has some of the same toxic components as chocolate.

Mistletoe â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Is a very toxic Christmas decoration. Mistletoe can cause severe irritation of the digestive tract. Poinsettia â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Is minimally to moderately toxic. These are members of the spurge family. Ingestion of these leaves generally results in mild to moderate digestive upset. A PERSONAL MESSAGE Christmas is a time for family, friends and pets to gather. From my family to yours have a very merry (and safe) Christmas. Ian owns and operates Wags & Whiskers Dog and Cat Grooming at 118 John St. N., Arnprior.

Scruffy was found wandering around for a week before anyone was able to catch him and bring him into the shelter. He was in terrible condition, with matts and burrs in his overgrown coat. After being groomed and some TLC, he is now ready to ďŹ nd a wonderful new home. He is a quiet dog, that is affectionate once he is comfortable with you. He enjoys going for walks and gets along well with other easy going dogs. He would be best suited in a quiet adult home.

SUPPLIES NEEDED THIS WEEK: Bleach, paper towels, greenworks cleaner, Lysol wipes, bounce sheets, HE laundry soap

 free community-based program that is offered in a weekly 2.5 hour-long session over six consecutive weeks  involves 8 to 15 registered participants  offers a free resource book to participants  led by trained Peer Leader volunteers Program start dates: February 9, 2013 March 21, 2013 April 10, 2013 Registration: Contact 613-723-1744, ext. 3621 R0021754901-1220
