We Stand With Paris – Stittsvegas #17
The attacks in Paris have brought out the best and worst in people. Some on social media have politicized the tragedy. How's that Syrian refugee resettlement look now?

Don’t move Bradley-Craig barn: Gower
STITTSVILLE - The editor of StittsvilleCentral.ca is asking residents to send emails to city councillors on the heritage committee, asking them to oppose the proposed relocation of the 144-year-old Bradley-Craig barn on Hazeldean Road. The owner of the land the barn resides on, Richcraft, wants to move the structure to Saunders Farm in Munster in order to develop the land. Glen Gower told 960 NEWS that he is opposed to the relocation because the barn is a landmark in the community. "The Stittsville area, Kanata-Stittsville area, is changing so quickly that we have lost a lot of heritage buildings over the last 20 or 30 years," said Gower, "... I think it's really important that we have continuity to the past." Gower said there are a lot of things that could be done to the barn, which could be cheaper than tearing it down and building something new. "Old barns have been turned into theatres, they've been turned into bed and breakfasts, they've been turned into wineries, they've been turned into markets... there's all sorts of ideas." The heritage committee will consider the application for the relocation on Monday. Richcraft is expected to ask the committee to defer a decision until December. Gower has been asking residents to send emails to councillors on the heritage committee, to express the importance of keeping the barn where it is.

SVA ‘disappointed’ by site plan approval of Carp Road landfill expansion
STITTSVILLE - The Stittsville Village Association is 'disappointed' by the city's approval of the site plan for an expansion of the Carp Road dump, according to president Tanya Hein. The site plan had been approved October 28th, but work cannot begin on the expansion until 38 conditions on the approval are met. Tanya Hein told 960 NEWS that her organization was expecting more detail in the site plan application. "The plan wasn't as comprehensive as we thought it should have been... it did meet sort of the minimum requirements that it had to do I suppose, for the city's approval," said Hein "[the site plan] was sort of a generalized, hypothetical view of what might be there." Hein said that the SVA would like to see more transparency in the way the city approves these types of applications. "It's not a particularly public process and that's been frustrating. The public liaison committee committee is probably the most un-public committee I've seen." Hein said that an active landfill could pose plenty of negative environmental impacts, as well as present odour and property value issues.

Gendrons look forward to retirement after closing
STITTSVILLE - The Gendron Antiques barn is getting a facelift as the current owners prepare to move out and retire after 20 years in the business. Marc and Line Gendron had said in August they would be retiring and shutting down, while the property the barn sits on is sold to new owners. The new owners were kept confidential initially, but it was recently revealed that Deschênes-Poitras Dental bought the land to use the barn as a new clinic. Marc Gendron told 960 NEWS that renovations are almost done being made to the barn by the owners in preparation of a December opening. The dental practice will only use the second floor of the barn, and will likely offer the ground floor to lease. The Gendrons will be closing shop on November 29th, and plan to move out before the 31st of December. They will also be moving out of their house, sold as part of the same plot of land. The business won't be going away entirely, however. The Gendrons will still be selling off remaining stock through firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (613) 831-2186. Additionally, the workshop on the land is now leased for at least the next year by their son Nicolas, who will continue to re-finish, repair and build furniture in the short-term. "He's not really into antiques… as of now he's mainly gonna be dealing in the reproduction side of things," Marc told 960 NEWS. During retirement, the Gendrons look forward to spending time with their grandchild, with another grandchild coming in January. They also plan to do some travelling, and Marc will enjoy hunting and fishing at their cottage in Mississippi Lakes. "We’re gonna miss the people, the interaction with people… so it's mixed feelings. We're sad that way, but on the other hand we're looking forward to retirement." Marc says him and Line are happy and proud that they took the business so far, from renting a $40 table at the flea market, to opening a store in their two-car garage, to building the 10,000 square foot red barn in 2002. "This didn't just start 25 years ago; I grew up in antiques, I was 5 years old when my dad started doing antiques… I [worked] very hard with my dad." Once the store closes and the Gendrons move out, they will live in a new home in the countryside near Beckwith.

"When you control the newspapers, you control information" * Devyn Barrie discussing the benefits of delivering the Stittsville News. Stittsvegas in the morning episode #16 In the 16th episode of Stittsvegas in the Morning, our panel discusses issues like the Carp Landfill, the Bradley-Craig barn, recent conflicts on the Facebook group Stittsville Neighbours, as well as the apparent Trudeaumania in Canada today and a general umbrella discussion about the new Liberal government, focusing on their promises, which branches off onto the CBC and possible bias in the CBC (undecided). Guests Tanya Hein of the SVA joins us first to discuss the Carp Landfill and how it impacts the community. Glen Gower, editor of StittsvilleCentral.ca also joins us to talk about what's happening to the Bradley-Craig barn and what should be done about the situation.

It’s Tim Hudak’s Fault – Stittsvegas in the Morning #15
Keeping with the tradition of increasingly smarmy show titles, we have named this episode "It's Tim Hudak's Fault" because, during the show, we concluded that Tim Hudak's un-electability is to blame for the Ontario Liberal Majority. In this program, our Stittsvegas panel discusses some key issues that came up during the last week in news. We start light, with a discussion about Ryerson University's two-tiered toilet paper system. We move onto our main topic for the show - privatization. For this topic, we discuss privatization of Hydro One, as well as the potential behind privatizing Canada Post, CBC, Via Rail and OC Transpo. We also talk about the 1995 Quebec Referendum and Quebec's $1B Bombardier bailout.

Electoral Dysfunction – Stittsvegas in the Morning #14
Take a look at some of our options for streaming and subscribing! In the first hour of the program, Devyn and Aidan discuss local news such as suspicious packages found on buses, provincial funding for schools and look back at the Ottawa shooting. We also shift into national topics before going all-out on the election. We focus primarily on platforms and the new Prime Minister, but also get into the local election in Stittsville's riding of Carleton - where Conservative Pierre Poilievre was elected. As part of our election chat, we also take a look at electoral system (Electoral Dysfunction). Devyn is preferential to either Mixed-Member Proportional or straight Proportional Representation, and Aidan is partial to MMP as well. Devyn has unkind words to say about preferential voting for federal elections, but you'll have to listen for more details. Guests Devyn has a quick 4-minute interview with Sacred Heart teacher Glenn Carr coming up in our second hour, where he gets some information about the stewardship program underway for the 200-year old Kemp Woodland. Special Guest Our special guest for this week is Matt Harris, of 1310 NEWS. Matt is a reporter as well as producer for The Ed Hand Show, in addition to supervisor for Devyn as he holds an internship at the station. On Friday when the day's work was done, he sat down with Devyn for 40 minutes to chat about the election and anniversary of the Ottawa shooting, and how he covered it for 1310 NEWS. Suspicious packages, elections, reforms, interviews and humour are what Stittsvegas wakes up to in the morning. Be a part of the conversation by emailing email@example.com.

Special Election Day Special – Stittsvegas in the Morning #13
Disclaimer: Yeah, we messed up the first five seconds. Quit crying about it. First world problems. This thing takes four hours to export and we didn't feel like doing it over again. Enjoy the show! * The person who spent two hours recording this show and another eight exporting it because he severely messed up the first export and redid it (Devyn). Guest with as much economics training as Harper (joke) In this deluxe edition of Stittsvegas in the Morning, Devyn changes it up, with special guest Steve Hickson, former SHHS head boy and current economics undergrad at Laurer University in Waterloo. Steve is an NDP member who doubts his New Democrat vote, and he discusses the election with Devyn in the first hour. Also CJOH's Carol Anne Meehan is related to him and he didn't think of telling us this interesting fact until 45 minutes in. Wow. Second segment Stittsville in the riding of Carleton is kindof like the Toronto of the golden horseshoe; you've got Brampton, Mississauga, Kitchener-Waterloo and Hamilton, but Toronto gets all the attention. Devyn made sure Stittsvegas got all the media with his interviews with Deborah Coyne of the GPC and Chris Rodgers of the LPC. He wanted to talk to Pierre Poilievre of the CPC and Kc Larocque of the NDP, but they did not reply to his request. Deborah Coyne wished to meet in person, and we were accommodated by 1310 NEWS, which was kind enough to let us use their empty talk studio. Special election day special In our final hour, Connor joins us for his take on the election, where he and Devyn spend most of their time discussing their priorities. Devyn also calls out Canadian newspapers for their out-of-date and out-of-touch tradition of endorsing candidates. Our other co-host Aidan was away this weekend. Happy birthday! 1310 NEWS turned five years old at six a.m. Sunday morning. On a daily basis, CIWW-AM provides Ottawa audiences with breaking news, traffic and weather, as well as the best in talk and sports (especially Blue Jays). They also employ Devyn as an intern, which is pretty cool.

Stittsvegas #12: Pirate Radio
When you're done, listen to Stittsville Radio (it's just a looping playlist so why bother?) Pirate Radio In the twelfth episode of Stittsvegas in the Morning, Devyn is joined by Aidan, Connor and special guest Ryan Fitz - local musician and owner of the failed Stittsville Radio. Special guest segment In the first hour of the show Ryan Fitz joins the show to discuss his musical career, from forming his first band, to creating Stittsville's only radio station (since shut down by Industry Canada.) Panel discussion In the final hour, our panelists hash our some news from the past week, mainly the TPP and a broad discussion about the Canadian economy and choice of political parties - differences and similarities. Devyn also explains HD Radio and debates with Aidan on whether radio is future-proof.

Stittsvegas in the Morning Sept 20th
Episode #9 The amazing 2 1/2 hour episode with Devyn, Connor and Aidan sees our regulars joined by Jess and Paul, prime ministers of SHHS student council. In this edition of Stittsvegas in the Morning, our panel discusses the federal campaign, the SHHS student council budget, the "youth issue" in Stittsville that has become a hot button issue, as well as plenty of tangents and Globe & Mail debate-like crosstalk.

Stittsvegas in the Morning Sept 6th
In which Devyn, Connor and Aidan discuss things like a monolithic dome up for sale, an interview aired on CBC Radio One and how uninteresting an imaging centre in Stittsville really is. Stittsvegas in the Morning is an almost-nominated for some kind of a theoretical award somewhere talk show, the first in Stittsville, where somewhat memorable hosts discuss water-cooler topics of conversation. Some have described the show as "listenable" and "exceedingly adequate" 960 NEWS is unwittingly sponsored in part by Stittsville Neighbours. Stittsville Neighbours: We give them material.

Stittsvegas in the Morning August 30th
Thanks so much to Matt Harris and Mark Day from 1310 NEWS for listening, and inviting me over to the broadcast centre! It was really cool to see the studio and meet some of the staff. Got to see how it all works, really special! It will only drive me to make better stuff. Being on the air at 1310 was incredible! Also, thank you to Jeanne Armstrong for taking interest as well. We chatted for half and hour as she interviewed me for CBC Radio One's Ottawa Morning. I will be heard on that program at 8:15 on Monday. 91.5 FM. Of course, thank you to Jordan Mady for first publicizing us in stittsvillecentral.ca! - Devyn Barrie In this edition of Stittsvegas in the Morning, Devyn is joined once again by Aidan and Connor. This time with a special guest! Stephen Hickson is the former prime minister of Sacred Heart High School in Stittsville. He is also a registered member of the NDP and we talked about federal politics quite a bit, with NDP policies under scrutiny by Devyn and Aidan. We also discussed whether Stittsville has a drug problem (no!) and there were some nice offhand topics, such as the bizarre notes in Devyn's show notes. It's crude, it's crass, it's not fit for radio and that's how we make it! We hope you enjoy an amazing 2 hour episode of Stittsvegas in the Morning! 960news.ca
