The clubhouse at the Picton Golf and Country Club will be closed for the foreseeable future due to a fire that occurred in the early morning hours on Monday. It's believed a bolt of lightning struck the clubhouse sometime between midnight and 2 a.m, Monday, Sept. 2 and started a smouldering electrical fire in the wall of the clubhouse adjacent to the kitchen. When staff went to open the clubhouse at about 6:30 a.m. Monday morning, they were greeted by billowing smoke. Shutting the door and retreating to a safe distance, staff contacted the Prince Edward County fire department who arrived short time later and made quick work of the blaze that completely destroyed the kitchen but left the building standing. Club president Dave Mackay said the investigation was still ongoing but officials at the scene have indicated they believe it's due to a lightning strike. “It's likely, that's the pejorative term at this point,” Mackay told the the Gazette Tuesday morning. “It's hard to be totally definitive but the electricians fire officials that have looked at told us that's what it looks like.” Mackay said the club had a two-step fire alarm system that was completely knocked out and “fried”

in Monday morning's storm. Form there, it appears as a fire started to smoulder and slowly burn throughout the night until it was discovered by the club’s staff. Mackay and club executives were meeting with insurance adjusters this week but the preliminary report is the blaze caused upwards of $200,000 damage. “The whole kitchen was totally destroyed and there's water and smoke damage to

75 per cent of the building,” Mackay said. The clubhouse closing prior to the usual shutdown date at the end of October means six weddings that were planned for the clubhouse restaurant and dining lounge will have to be moved elsewhere. “We feel extremely terrible about those bookings but the good news is a number of the rental halls and other venues have already been in contact with us to provide an option for these wed-

It was billed as one-stop shopping for art lovers this weekend along Rednesrville Road and a rainy overcast Saturday provided a strong start for the art tour. Just a few hours into the tour Kathryn Fellows and Dona Knudsen had already counted 125 visitors at the door of mixed media artist Nadine Goulet’s studio near Rossmore and they had even sent a few people down the road in search of an ATM machine with the goal of

Thankfully, there were no injuries as a result of the blaze.

With the end of the golfing season right around the corner, the timing of the fire and subsequent clubhouse shutdown could have been catastrophic for the club had this fire occurred in May. In spite of the fire, the course will remain open and Mackay said Monday was one of their busiest days of the year in terms of local and visiting duffers making their way around the local track.

selling some of their watercolour paintings. The studio has been one of the mainstays on the sixyear-old tour which popped up in response to a limiting of artists along the road in the main Prince Edward County studio tour. “We decided to do our own,” said Knudsen. “The nice thing is it’s all on the one stretch of road, so you don’t have to run too far. You can spend more of your time in the galleries and less in the car.” Knudsen said she has her own home and studio

further down the road, but she elects to work with Goulet and Fellows as she paints with them regularly and the team approach allows all three artists a better opportunity to visit with guests and take a break from the traffic. Knudsen said being involved in the tour has allowed many artists to meet and share their passion for their crafts with others along the road, which has been a rewarding outlet for many.

ROC prepares to go downtown (and down hill) to promote new growth After 12 years in Heights subdivision, centre moves to Queen Elizabeth

perception felt in the community that the ROC was in existence to serve just the youth coming from the Heights neighbourhood. The ROC’s program coordinator Katy McIntyre says the partnership grew out of the youth centre’s recent efforts to offer youth empowerment programs such as the Girls Rock-It and Triple Power series in local schools. “They have surplus space they’re trying to find a way to use as well,” she said. “Triple Power was perfect in the schools and we made a proposal.” The school board saw value in those programs and could see merit in the ROC’s proposal to use nonclassroom space in the Picton elementary school to stage the evening programs that allow youth from Kindergarten to Grade 8 to meet friends, master new skills, and interact with caring volunteers. Queen Elizabeth princi-

After 12 years of operations in the only home its ever known, the Recreation Outreach Centre (ROC) is headed to school this fall. This week, the youth centre’s staff announced they were moving forward on long-held plans to move the centre into downtown Picton from the Heights by securing space at Queen Elizabeth School. Executive director Darlene Thompson said the partnership with the school will allow its evening programs room to grow that they wouldn’t have had at their Nery Avenue location. “We’ve had more than 160 kids register in two programs,” she said. “We’re excited to be more centrally located and we expect the numbers to go up. We have space to accommodate that future growth.” Thompson said the move also eliminates some

pal Bill Launderville is a supporter of the programs being offered at his school. “We are very excited to have clubROC at Queen Elizabeth School as we know they will provide a wonderful connection between the school and the community,” he said. “As a school, we are excited to partner and become a

major program location for students to learn the positive skills and values that clubROC teaches throughout its program.” While Thompson acknowledged more Queen Elizabeth students may take part in the programs now that they’re in their home school, the location may be walkable for more presented by

students and easier to find for parents coming from across the county. Recently, as staff and volunteers packed up the ROC’s belongings from the old location, Thompson said many couldn’t help be affected by the idea the centre would move. “For the volunteers and workers up there, the last day was bittersweet. There were a lot of mixed emotions,” she said. “We were reassuring parents and their kids we aren't leaving them, just leaving the location.” That remains true as ROC mainstay Marilyn Crowe and her team of volunteers are ready to continue with the core programming — now called clubROC — on Tuesdays for Grades 5-8 and Wednesdays for Kindergarten to Grade 4 from 6-7:30

p.m. Registration for those programs will take place at Queen Elizabeth Sept. 10 and 11, from 6:30-7 p.m. allowing parents and participants to see the new space. Information about fall programming is also available online at the site www.theroc.ca. ROC program facilitator Hilary Fennell said the space may also help the youth centre to attract new volunteers and new participants for its programs, especially since it is so close to PECI as well. She said teenage volunteers can now walk to the ROC right from school to be involved in programs, while the youth centre is also working on groups that have older youth in mind. “This space provides us lots of new options and we’re looking at developing programming for teens based on their choices,” Fennell said. She indicated the participants of a teenage youth group would be given the opportunity to shape their own programming and develop their own goals based on the funds available. With regard to the future, Thompson said the ROC is hopeful its partnership at the Queen Elizabeth site will prove fruitful for all parties. At present, the ROC has a use-of-school permit for the 2013-2014 school year, one it appears the Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board would be interested in renewing in future years. “The school board has been very supportive,” Thompson said. “We’ve spoken to them and this is exactly what they want for the kids.”

Wellington Pumpkinfest founder gets his due on agricultural wall of fame Former village reeve loved to farm and spent time growing tomatoes, strawberries, raspberries, and giant pumpkins Staff writer

BILL GrEEr

farm until 1995 but that wasn't the end of involvement in agriculture for Greer. Starting in 1994, he took an interest in giant pumpkin growing and in 1996, grew the first pumpkin in the world to weigh over 1,000 pounds. Arnold Vader was a contemporary of Greer's when it came to agriculture and the two were great friends up until Greer's passing. “We played hockey together growing up but we got to know each other better through the canning industry,� Vader said. “We had a lot of things in common that we could talk about and we did.� It was Greer that piqued Vader's interest in giant pumpkin growing and Vader looks back on Greer's efforts to start Wellington Pumpkinfest in 1997 with fondness. “It just wouldn't have happened,� Vader said of the event. “It's great event now and he was the instrument that started it all. He was so community minded.�

community pride for Greer, but it was also about growing the best giant pumpkin in Prince Edward County. A great sportsman as well as a great man of the land, Greer worked tirelessly every summer to try and grow the biggest pumpkin he could Bob Greer said his dad's interest in developing and growing a large pumpkin came from this days as a vegetable farmer. “When he farmed, there were experimental varieties of tomatoes and he was always interested in what was going on in the future of agriculture,� Bob Greer said. “He was always looking for a variety that would work, have good flavour, good yield, could be processed easily and was sturdy.� Discovering varieties, cross pollination and sharing seeds and tips with fellow pumpkin growers like Vader and others occupied Greer's time after he retired from farming and municipal politics.

“He was always talking about pumpkins, sharing growing tips and seeds and we grew together for three years before he noticed his health was declining,� Vader recalled. “He really liked growing the pumpkins,� Marguerite added. “It was very time consuming I know he would spend hours trimming vines and fussing with them.� Such was his dedication to the Atlantic Giant variety of pumpkins that one day in the fall, Bob happened to stop by his parents house for visit. He spied his father looking forlorn, sitting on a crate

outside the home. “He was loading a really big pumpkin to go weigh it in some where and when they lifted it, there was a hole in the bottom of it, making it ineligible,� Bob Greer recalls. “He was sitting on the end of that crate, looking like he lost his best friend. He was really dedicated to giant pumpkin growing.� The 2013 Quinte Agriculture Wall of Fame enshrinement ceremony takes place at 2:00 p.m. At Farmtown Park in Stirling and is open to the public with paid admission to the facility.

A late Prince Edward County farming pioneer and community leader will take his rightful place on the Quinte Agriculture Wall of Fame next weekend. Bill Greer succumbed to ALS in 2003 but not before he dutifully served his community for three decades, operated one of Prince Edward County's last canning operations and founded a local giant pumpkin festival & weigh off that has blossomed into a Wellington main stay. It was announced last week Greer would be one of seven entries of the 2013 induction class with the official ceremony to take place Sept. 15 at Farmtown Park in Stirling. Greer's wife Marguerite said Bill would be greatly pleased with the honour of being part of the Quinte Agriculture Wall of Fame. “He loved farming. He was always one that loved to buy farms and he loved the land,� she said. Greer worked on the family farm and he and his brother Mac managed the Greer Canning Company Limited which their father founded. Processing their own tomatoes, strawberries and Columbia blue raspberries as well as tomatoes from other growers, they grew up to one million tomato plants each year and at their peak grew 70 acres of tomatoes. Later, after the factory closed, he bought out his brother and continued to

Greer's eldest son Bob recalls when his dad took part in a pumpkinfest in a village just north of Kingston and he mentioned such an event would work in Wellington. “He was never one to get too excited, but he talked about the event and the parade and all that and there was a little rise in his voice and you knew that he was really keen on the idea of building a Wellington Pumpkinfest,� Bob Greer recalled. Greer was elected to the council of the village of Wellington in 1962 and served for 30 years, 13 years as of which he served as reeve. Looking to bring equal parts of fun, community spirit & tourism to the village, Pumpkinfest was born. “He'd be so pleased with the way Pumpkinfest has grown in the past few years. It's really taken off and it's nice to see,� Marguerite added. Pumpkinfest was about

sult of research, 30 stakeholder interviews, and three community focus groups. She said more consultation is scheduled. “We did a countywide survey,” Millier told the commission Tuesday. “… We were very pleased with what we got back in the way of results. We got upwards of 360 people who participated in this. Many of those were local businesses, many more were local residents. That's a pretty good sample size we felt.” Millier said it was important for the commission to hear what the firm has been hearing throughout the process. She said the major themes that have emerged in that time will inform the direction of the strategic plan. “To this point our conversation has been around what old data, old census information, have been telling us,” she said. “In some respects there's a slightly different picture that has emerged with the data that's now in front of us.” The 2011 census pegged the municipality's permanent population at 25,258, which is a slight decline from 2006. The permanent and seasonal population in 2012 — as projected by Watson & Associates Economists for the official plan process — was 31,350. The Watson & Associates combined population was projected to climb to 34,755 by 2032, Millier said. She said census data also showed that Prince Edward County is proportionally older than anywhere else in the province. She said approximately 57 per cent of the population is between the ages of 20 and 64 compared with 60 per cent in Quinte West and 59 per cent in Belleville. She said the number is important because it reflects the working population. She said Prince Edward County also has a higher number of households with just a couple rather than a couple with children, with 39 per cent compared to 24 per cent provincially. Additionally, the municipality has a smaller proportion of residents with a post secondary degree or diploma compared with the rest of the province at 59 per cent and 64 per cent respectively. “What was interesting though is that there's a higher percentage of people in the older age cohort that are getting educated than in the younger age cohort,” Millier said. Projected average household income in the municipality based on the census data is $77,066, Millier said, which is considered to be in the mid range compared to other municipalities. When compared to Belleville and Quinte West, however, Millier said the average income is higher in Prince Edward County. Sales and service, trades, transportation, equipment operator, business planning, and administration represented the most common employers, Millier said. “This is not to say that these people are working in the county, these are the occupations they hold,” she said. After discussing the upto-date demographics of the municipality, Millier out-

lined the results of two questions that emerged out of interviews and consultation with the public: The critical challenges or greatest barriers the municipality is facing and some of the greatest opportunities. “Some of this won't be a surprise: More focus on diversification, productivity with existing businesses, more competitive intelligence on the nature of local businesses and what support they need,” Millier said. “It's been suggested that local industrial land is inadequate to address the needs of the existing business community, but also to attract the business community that is likely to locate here.” Other challenges identified included a lack of major employers, a lack of partnerships between council, staff, and other organizations, and a local workforce that lacks essential skills. Some key opportunities identified included the opportunity to leverage broadband investment to attract information and communications technology and media firms, making better use of the existing inventory of municipal assets, and leverage Sandbanks not just as a tourism destination, but as an employee perk for companies looking to locate here. Mayor Peter Mertens said during the meeting that council has been dealing with the issue for a lot of years and a lot of the comments aren't new. He said there is a tendency to look to the municipality to fix the problem, but he said it has to be a community effort. “Fixing it carries a pretty hefty price tag. That I find concerning because with transportation, shuttles to the Sandbanks, tracking for businesses — these are huge challenges,” he said. “What evolves out of this should be a plan that's workable and a plan that doesn't establish a totally unrealistic goal. If the plan is contingent on the municipality investing a million dollars on all these various pieces, it's not within our ability to do.” CDC chair Terry Shortt said he wasn't surprised by what he heard on Tuesday. “It's very much what I expected to see. We're hearing points that we've heard before over the years being repeated to us and I think that's going to lead to a plan that's consistent with the community,” he said. Millier said she expects to bring a draft report and recommendations back to the CDC and council later this month. Shortt said that's when the real work starts. “That's when we develop the plan and the plan is essential because it's going to be tied in with our (official plan),” he said. “One has to marry up to the other and they're both important.”

Computer crash causes boil water advisory Ameliasburgh system users affected by plant failure Chad ibbotson

Staff writer

A computer crash on Tuesday was behind a boil water advisory for all users on the Ameliasburgh drinking water system. The advisory was sent out immediately by the Hastings and Prince Edward Counties Health Unit on Tuesday as the system lost pressure due to the failure of computer systems at the Ameliasburgh wastewater treatment plant. Engineering, development, and works commissioner Robert McAuley said the advisory was issued when the system lost pressure Tuesday. “The system actually went offline. We're not entirely sure yet of the nature, we're still diagnosing it, but the system in the plant corrupted and a hard drive crashed, literally collapsed,” he said. “Think of it as your laptop computer died and your laptop is running everything in your house. That's essentially what happened.” McAuley said the Ameliasburgh wastewater treatment plant does not have storage capacity so — in the case of a loss of pressure — whatever is in the intake bleeds into the system. “There's no ability to buffer by having made hours of water stored in a tank somewhere to allow us that time,” he said. “The minute the computer crashed the system lost pressure and that immediately triggers a precautionary boil water order.” McAuley said it took most of Tuesday to get a new computer and software in place, but the plant was back up and running by approximately 5 p.m. Tuesday evening. “We had a bulk water tanker standing by just in case there was a glitch, but I've heard of nothing since it went back up. It seems to be fine,” he said. He said part of the rea-

son for the duration of the repairs was software compatibility issues. “We had a computer that's Windows XP controlling the system and we're trying to load it with a computer with Windows 7 on it,” McAuley said. “There's compatibility issues and drivers that even predate XP for hardware that had to be loaded … but it was a computer crash and it's a computer operated system.” McAuley said the system will require two clean water samples before the boil water advisory is lifted. Samples were taken when the system went back online Tuesday and again on Wednesday. He said the municipality could hear back as early as today or Friday if the system is clear or if there are issues. “That's the problem, when the system loses pressure there's a risk of things being drawn into it,” he said. “None of that seems to have occurred.” McAuley said the municipality has ruled out a lightning strike as the cause of the computer

crash, but he said it appears to be the result of an internal electrical surge in the wastewater plant. Notices were hand delivered to homes and residents were reminded that during the repairs there was a possibility of water pressure fluctuations

and/or water discolouration. As long as the advisory is in place residents are asked to bring water to a rapid boil for at least a minute prior to using it for drinking, brushing teeth, making ice, or washing foods.

Man arrested for vehicle theft

The Prince Edward OPP detachment picked up the chase of a vehicle reported to the Napanee OPP Tuesday and apprehended a theft suspect. A stolen motor vehicle was reported to the Napanee detachment some time Tuesday and at 7:19 p.m. the Prince Edward detachment received word the vehicle was moving through the county. An officer stopped the suspect vehicle on County Rd. 5 in Sophiasburgh.

Police believe the male driver was also involved in the theft of gasoline from a Belleville station and an investigation showed he was a prohibited driver. A 19-year-old Stone Mills man faces charges of possession of property obtained by crime, two counts of theft, and vehicular operation while disqualified. He was to attend a bail hearing in Belleville court yesterday. -Staff

PRINCE EDWARD COUNTY

Looking back in the

Picton Gazette 80 years ago — 1933

■ Two Toronto men drowned during a fishing trip in Northport. They had been fishing with another Toronto man when their boat capsized in a sudden squail on the cold, choppy bay. A solitary woman watched the tragedy unfold while her husband, Fred Reinholdt, secured a boat and attempted to rescue the men. Edward J. Redpath, 73, and WIlliam Dick, age 52, succumbed to their fight to stay alive. Their younger cohort, Charles Carrie, a former alderman, survived. ■ Enrollment figures for the Prince Edward Vocational Institute showed an increase of 104 students over the previous year’s totals. Some 165 girls and 129 boys were attending the school. ■ Ontario’s municipal association petitioned the government for a law that would require all applications for motor vehicle licences to be coupled with proof of insurance and that all licences be suspended at the time the policies expire.

60 years ago — 1953

■ Mayor H.J. McFarland suggested an amber traffic beacon be placed above the intersection of Main Street and Cold Storage Road to calm speeding drivers and counter complaints councillors were hearing about people going faster than the 30 miles per hour prescribed there. Council also resolved to extend that speed limit to Warings Corners. ■ Picton’s roads employees were back to work after a one-day strike. The workers had been asking council for a general rate of 90 cents an hour regardless of the task they were employed to do, instead of having their wages set by the job they did. The men met with streets committee chair Woodrow Blakely and came to an arrangement most found suitable. ■ Council sought to prevent National Railways from creating level crossings at some of the areas busiest highways.

40 years ago — 1973

■ Most of the drivers in the annual Gold Cup Races on Hayward Long Reach donated their winnings to a fund to help fellow driver Andre Savard recovered from injuries sustained in competition. Savard shattered his left leg in a crash and was transferred to Belleville General Hospital after a brief stay in Picton. ■ With production costs increasing the local milk committee wrote the Ontario Milk Marketing Board looking for a raise for fluid shippers, a move which would likely drive milk prices up in the province. ■ Education minister Thomas Wells called for an eight-per-cent increase in 1974 spending ceilings for school boards meaning taxes would likely increase.

20 years ago — 1993

■ St. Gregory Catholic School students returned to classes to experience a new addition to the building which connected the school to its gymnasium. The new construction included two classrooms, a music room, and washrooms with wheelchair accessibility. ■ The Picton OPP detachment was asking neighbours of the Wellington beach to be on the lookout after reports of vandalism there. Guideposts were removed from the ground and sign posts were bent or removed entirely. ■ Zac Wheeler, 19, had an incredible experience on a Canada World Youth Exchange that took him to Uruguay.

The foul and loathsome under water

Once again, I had the pleasure of spending two days at last month’s Hastings Farm Show in Stirling disseminating wisdom on behalf of Lower Trent Conservation and the Bay of Quinte Remedial Action Plan. Lots of interest in environmental awareness which was good to see. Among the queries were those on plants and animals and strange natural phenomena. Always a pleasure to provide our take on these things. Once again, as in past years, we were asked about these strange gelatinous objects that sometimes turn up in slow moving water. Although I couldn’t remember the names of half of those who claimed to know me, I did manage to remember the name of these creatures. Bryozoa is their name, usually expressed as Bryozoans since one most always find these things in multiples. I well remember my first experience with these goopy things. A Belleville resident dropped by Quinte Conservation office many years ago with an object that he had found in the Moira River, right within the city. His curiosity was quite understandable as the object we stared at in the plastic pail was semi floating in the water like some creature from a horror movie. I had never before seen anything quite like it. It was the size of a basketball, round and translucent, somewhat textured, but so slimy as to defy touching. Finally, it was I who volunteered to close my eyes and gently lift the object from the water for a closer look. As a dairy farmer from way back, my hands had already experienced many questionable textures, and had probed numerous dark recesses where most hands seldom A 56-year-old Picton woman and a 51-year-old man of no fixed address were arrested just after 1 a.m. Monday after police were called to Burr Road in

venture. The gelatinous object I now held in my hand was attached to a decaying piece of vegetation and trembled noticeably as I rotated it for some clue as to what it might be. The sensation was not unlike holding a quivering ball of Jell-O, the only difference being, that this ball was decidedly sticky. Since that memorable day, I have encountered them in several areas including Fourth Depot Lake and the Napanee River east of the Colebrook Dam. Bryozoans are actually aquatic organisms, but are classified as animals. Some of us know them better as “moss animals.” However, they will not emit animal noises, nor will they respond to touch, although some claim they do. These little aquatic organisms live in colonies of interconnected individuals forming masses such as we find every year at this time. Sometimes they float freely, other times they attach themselves to rocks, or to plant material in the water. One large cluster of Bryozoans was found a few years ago attached to a dock

at Wellers Bay. The Bryozoans that turn up at this time of the year are mostly the soft and gelatinous variety, but they do occur as tufted leaf-like fronds or even hard calcified skeletons, not unlike coral. Almost all Bryozoans are colonial, composed of anywhere from a few to millions of individuals. The one I held in my hand likely contained millions of individuals, all amassed to form the globulus gel I pulled out of the pail. How do they reproduce? Bryozoans are able to propagate both sexually and asexually, the latter occurring by budding off new zooids (individual functioning units) as the colony grows. If a piece of the colony breaks off, this piece can continue to grow and form a new colony. Most are hermaphroditic — that is, individuals possessing both ovaries and testes. Some shed both eggs and sperm into the water where they fuse, but the majority brood their eggs in tiny chambers, capturing free-swimming sperm with their tentacles to fertilize the eggs. The eggs divide, develop into free-swimming larvae, escape from the brood chamber, and swim away to settle on an object somewhere to metamorphose into a new zooid, thus starting a new colony. Of course, we can’t see this unless we were to somehow view the whole process under a microscope. All we get to see is the mass of millions that have united to form something we can observe floating in the water - or hold in our hand, for those who dare to experience the sensation. To look at them, Bryozoans superficially appear to have more in common with coral, but Bryozoans

and corals belong to quite different phyla and are unrelated. A glob that we may find is actually a colony of zooids, not polyps as in corals. And each of these zooids has whorls of delicate feeding tentacles gently swaying in the water catching food. Bryozoans instead feed on minute organisms, including diatoms and other unicellular algae. We’re talking all microscopic stuff here, so you are not apt to witness much action. In turn, they are fed upon by grazing organisms such as small fish and are subject to competition from algae. Who knows what daily routine in their lives we interrupt by lifting specimens out of the water. And these little critters have been around for a while. There are fossil records dating back some 500,000,000 years, to the upper Cambrian period. Identifying a mass as a Bryozoa (or plural Bryozoan since there are millions of them in one cluster) is enough for us. To identify the exact species would be a painstaking job as there are about 5,000 living species in the world. And in some cases, they can be downright nuisances as they often clog water intakes. Yet, they produce an incredible variety of chemical compounds, some of which may possibly find uses in modern medicine. Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water…….

Minimum wages shouldn’t be raised on a whim

SINCE 2004, Ontario has raised its minimum wage nine times, yet right now, the province’s number is set at $10.25, which is comparable to each of the other Canadian jurisdictions, with Alberta coming in at the lowest ($.9.95) and Nunavut the highest ($11). Still, however, despite that balance, some would have this province raise its minimum wage to $14 per hour this year. One can understand the arguments anti-poverty groups are making about the widening gap between people who have money and people who do not, but at the same token, raising the minimum wage does not appear to be something that would make Ontario stand apart from its rival jurisdictions or one that would kick start the economy here. Even setting aside the current parity with other Canadian jurisdictions, one must consider that every American state has an adult minimum wage lower than Ontario has and many other countries also allow employers to pay less for labour. When that is coupled with some of the highest energy costs in North America and a provincial debt that begs either a reduction in government spending or a more likely hike in taxes, this just doesn’t seem to be an attractive place for businesses to set up shop in the global or even hemispheric economy. The bottom line just does not support job creation here in Ontario without some serious incentives — and those include tax breaks, and yes, the ability to pay competitive wages with other areas. Be it small business or large business, that is ultimately a deciding factor for everyone in business to some degree. Costs go up, margins go down, and there comes a point in time where it doesn’t make sense to produce the same goods any longer. That alone is reason for the province to look in the face of these demands for an increased minimum wage and decide that it is something that its businesses simply cannot afford at this time. That question of competitive balance must be addressed before Ontario can even proceed to the arguments about whether minimum wage hikes are responsible for inflationary pricing — some argue that it has risen regardless of the means people have — though that’s just one economic indicator, and of how the collective wealth should be shared. It is encouraging to see that Premier Kathleen Wynne hasn’t just made a blind promise on this issue as some of her predecessors have, but instead has supported the creation of a panel that will look at several factors with the ultimate goal of tying minimum wage decisions to economic indicators. One hopes that group will take a broad look that goes beyond Ontario’s own borders and considers the impact of global competition on the business practices of this province’s employers. It is only within that broader context that any mechanism can make sense and be used as a tool to help Ontario residents rebuild this province as one of the most economically sound areas within North America.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Speak up to maintain historic political wards

Both last term and this term, council has been evenly split on downsizing vs maintaining the status quo. Now, a citizens’ assembly commissioned by council is recommending a reduction to 10 councillors from 15. If approved by council, this will require the elimination of the County’s 10 historic / electoral wards. Instead, the County will likely have five new “noname” wards having two councillors each, with boundaries drawn to achieve good representation by population. This change may be approved as early as the council meeting on Sept. 24, 2013 and, once passed, may be difficult or impossible to reverse. Such a change will erase 200 years of County history, which was protected in the 1998 amalgamation by converting one town, two villages and seven townships into 10 municipal wards. While the names Picton, Wellington and Bloomfield

will live on as urban centres, the names and areas associated with the seven townships will be relegated to the history books. Such a change will reduce attention paid to the now-nameless rural areas and increase focus on the named urban areas. This will likely mean less attention to maintaining rural facilities and services, and more centralization. Questions will be asked: “Why maintain a town hall in Sophiasburgh now that there is no Sophiasburgh?” “Why continue with the Hillier recreation committee when Hillier Ward no longer exists”. “Why have a newspaper in South Marysburgh if there is no South Marysburgh?” “Why have a museum in Ameliasburgh when few people know that there was an Ameliasburgh?” One reason why the county exhibits such a strong sense of community is that, being an island, it is

a clearly-defined and selfcontained area. At the next level of community, we have 10 clearly-defined areas – the 10 historic wards -with boundaries strengthened by two centuries of history. The seven rural / township Wards are communities and attract attention because they have names – not arbitrary names, but historic names – and defined areas. We need to see county residents (especially those in the rural areas) and county organizations speaking up to ensure the preservation of the County’s 10 historic wards. This doesn’t mean opposing downsizing,if this is council’s decision; rather, it requires finding a way to reduce the number of councillors while retaining the 10 historic wards. This objective can be achieved by creating three electoral wards that overlay the 10 historic wards, with

the latter being preserved unchanged – the same names, boundaries, town halls, rec committees and road signage. A plan for doing so, called the N.E.W. Plan, is described at http://tinyurl.com/mw8sp 2j . While the plan doesn’t work for 10 councillors, it is perfectly suited to nine or 12 councillors – reasonably close to the recommendation of the citizen’s assembly. Please review the Plan and lend your support to preserving the County’s long history and rich heritage. Note: No criticism of the citizens’ assembly is implied by the above comments. Its mandate was to make a recommendation on the appropriate number of councillors, and its members were instructed to ignore the existing Historic Ward structure in doing so.

I am writing to address the long-standing question that has arisen yet again this summer: where is Cressy? During my recent visit, I noted that the road sign part way up the hill on Lake-on-the-Mountain Road just after the turn off from Loyalist Parkway, says 19 km to Cressy. But where does this 19 km put you? It depends; which way did you go? Over to the lake side?

Through Waupoos? Which cross-road? Likely you've ended up somewhere below Kaiser's x-road, and Cressy is somewhere around there, but it's hard to tell because at first blush, it seems like there's no there there. And maybe there isn't. My understanding is that the recent initiative to have Cressy declared a semi-autonomous protectorate of the U.S.A. [and

thereby get the locals out from under the oppressive thumb of Queen's Park, among other innumerable advantages] fizzled in part because of this lack of geographic definition. The other issue is where within Cressy might you be? Cressy Bayside, Cressy Lakeside, Cressy Flats, Upper Cressy, Lower Cressy. A bit confusing. But don't worry. As you slow down and

wonder, you may begin to realize that, well, Cressy is not so much a particular or specific dot on the map, not a pair of GPS co-ordinates, as much as it is, well, a state of mind. Travel down there. Slow down. Maybe you'll see that the question has no real answer. Why should it?

Home studios offer artists convenience TOUR, from page 1

In fact, one could say that Knudsen is appearing on the tour today due to the influence of another artist on the road. Following her retirement in 2004, Knudsen began taking painting lessons from water colour artist Donnah Cameron who also lived along the north shore. At that time, the county wasn’t quite the arts scene it is today, but Knudsen said things have really taken off over the years. “Now there are a lot of artists in the county, we get together in different groups and paint,” she said. “The tour is a lot of fun, we meet a lot of people including our neighbours on the road. With these big driveways, we don't always meet our neighbours regularly.” Fellows is also a watercolour artist, known for painting vivid landscapes. Shealso tried some acrylic work for this year’s show, but said she likes the precision of watercolour most. In the intimacy of a studio

setting, she also shared her own stories of how her career in art came out of personal tragedy. Fellows had lost a niece in a car accident and a brother to cancer in a short period of time. Soon after, her other brother told her he had cancer and gave her a photo of him. For some reason, she said, she felt compelled to paint a portrait of him. “I did the portrait, framed it and gave it to him. He was thrilled,” she said. “His was the greater. gift to me. I needed to find out how to do this.” Fellows also took art classes and now enjoys painting with other artists and discussing her art. She has happily appeared as a guest artist on the 13-stop tour for several years. Farther west down the road, Linda Hargest invited guests into her living room to see her show off the fruits of her passion for quilting, dating back to 1988. It was then her sister convinced her that she could use her skills as a seamstress and sewer for creative uses.

Hargest said she started with basic patterns and has continued to work toward more complex pieces. Some of her latest work includes 3-Dblock design. She said she doesn’t show much, outside of the Rednersville Road tour because she has to cart her works out of the house and attend a booth that may or may not result in sales. Staying at home, however, can be a perfect solution. “I don’t mind it at all, people are welcome. I want them to come in, to look, and to just enjoy,” she said. Hargest said she has had some repeat business from the show in the past, including some people looking for custom-made items. Meanwhile, staying at home has also given her the freedom to spend another day working on a hobby that she loves. I always have a project in my head, a project on the shelf, and a project I'm working on,” Hargest said, adding she loves making quilted items for family members as well as the general public.

For a second consecutive year, the Prince Edward County Music Festival will feature opera music. This time around, on Sept. 26, the festival will host the Jeunesses Musicales’ national opera its season debut. A production of Puccini’s working class love story La bohème will be fully staged on the Regent Theatre stage that night. Festival chair Betsy MacKinnon indicated the Regent had served as an opera house in the past as founder George Cook brought the Boston English Opera Company to his theatre on several occasions, but added it appears to have been years since a full opera was staged here.

The company is part of the largest non-profit, nongovernmental youth music organization in the world and it will be visiting the festival for a second year. To promote La bohème, the Regent will also host a special screening of Rent Sept. 16, Jonathan Larson’s popular rock opera which drew inspiration from the classic performance. In addition to the opera, the festival’s artistic director Stéphane Lemelin appears to have approached his 10th year at the helm looking for the same blend of music that has made the event a success — he blends classic music with more contemporary pieces by Canadian composers. “Our programming has been broad and I have sought to balance celebrated masterworks of the past with the music of our time,” he said. “I am particularly proud of the place we have given on our programming to Canadian composers — the list of composures who have been in residence at the festival since 2004 reads like a who’s who in musical creation in Canada.” Borrowing on the past decade, this year’s festival will formally kick off with a “greatest hits” concert Sept. 20 that will feature some of the most popular acts throughout the years in Picton. The show will feature the works of classical composers Schubert and Brahms and spotlight Canadian Steven Gellman’s work. Collaborating on the concert will be Aaron Au on viola, Ross Edwards on clarinet, Jacques Israelievitch on violin, Tanya Prochazka on cello, and soprano Donna Brown. The following night, also on the St. Mary Magdalene stage, the festival will take on a playful note as wellknown soprano Mary Lou Fallis, the star of many onewoman shows, will be accompanied by pianist Peter Tiefenbach for a comedic performance. Wrapping up the first full weekend of the festival, a Sunday matinee at St. Mary Magdalene will feature the two-time Junowinning Gryphon Trio — violinist Annalee Pati-

patanakoon, cellist Roman Boryst, and pianist Jamie Parker — will present the works of such composers as Haydn, Mozetich, and Dvorak. The Toronto-based trio has performerd around the world and has also made its mark on chamber music by commissioning and premiering more than 50 new works over the past decade. After a few days of rest, the festival kicks back into gear Thursday, Sept. 26 with one of its most popular events, the schools concert. After selling out in past years, the festival extended the show to both a morning and afternoon performance to ensure more students are able to watch. This year, Toronto’s True North Brass will have the honour of headlining those concerts. Following the opera, the festival will depart Picton for one night as it offers an evening of Baroque music Friday, Sept. 27 at the Oeno Gallery at Huff Estates. Gergoire Jeay on the flute will pair with Luc Beausejour on harpsichord that evening. Saturday afternoon, the festival gives an opportunity to two rising musicians from this region as soprano Elizabeth McDonald and pianist Marek Krowicki are set to perform a 2 p.m. matinee at St. Mary Magdalene. Finally, the grand finale is a piano lover’s delight as David Jalbert, Andrew Tunis, and Lemelin share the bench with written music ranging from that intended to be played with a single hand to other works calling for single finger on Saturday, Sept. 28. A reception will follow that concert. Tickets for single concerts are available for $36 each, or there is a three-concert flex pack available for $100. For the opera, patrons are asked to buy tickets in advance for better seating. At Oeno Gallery, tickets are $50 each and must be bought in advance. Tickets for teens are available for just five cents for the St. Mary Magdalene concerts and the opera. Tickets are available through the Regent Theatre box office or by calling 613476-8416 ext. 28.

A Halifax resident raising funds for services dogs for Canadian Veterans with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder will be in Picton today. Medric Cousineau, a former tactical co-ordinator on a Sea King helicopter, was dramatically rescued from the Atlantic Ocean over two decades ago and found his service dog 'Thai' has helped his recovery drastically to the point where he's reduced his dependancy on medication. Such has been the positive change in Cousineau's life, he is undertaken the “Long Walk to Sanity”, a fundraising initiative that aims to provide 50 veterans with 50 service dogs. Cousineau has walked from his home in Halifax and will finish his halfmarathon-a-day pace later this month when he arrives in Ottawa. In order to reach his goal, Cousineau is attempting to raise $350,000 to cover the cost of securing and training the animals. Cousineau will be at the Picton Legion branch 78 today at approximately 5:00 p.m. He is expected to conclude his walk when he reaches Parliament Hill on Sept. 19.

Wii is not physically demanding. Wii is a sports game developed by Nintendo. It is a video game and can be played from a standing or sitting position. We’ve even had people play while sitting on a walker. We set up two lanes andeight people play at a time. The laughter is infectious. It’s a great way to get involved. Players use the remote control to mimic the bowling actions. Individual and team scores are kept. Perhaps your team name will appear on the trophy! Teams are being formed now. No experience is necessary. You just need to enjoy having fun and meet-

up to five days a week. The walking programs start after Thanksgiving. Call today to get signed up. Call Community Care at 613-476-7493 for more information.

Some gardening questions still remain outstanding as summer ends

Last week’s gardening column dealt with the lack of blossoms on some types of hydrangeas. A number of reasons for the lack of success were discussed including untimely pruning, insufficient watering and too much or too little shade. Another interesting possibility was the effect of apparent winter die back on later blossom development. One gardener removed all of the brown leafless stalks once new green shoots appeared at the base of the bush. This had been most effective with the butterfly bushes that grew nearby, which flower on new growth. This was not helpful for that type of hydrangea, which flowered on old growth, and therefore there were absolutely no blooms this summer. A nearby garden had either a wiser or luckier gardener as she had left the apparently dead stalks in place until they put out leaves in late June. These older stalks then went on to produce a full load of blossoms later. Clearly if you don’t know whether you have hydrangeas that produce blossoms on old or new wood you need to check this out first. If you are purchasing new plants check the labels and/or ask knowledgeable staff. This still leaves us with

ASk A MASTER GARDENER

SANDRA GORANSON

a question recently in Bloomfield from someone with two identical hydrangeas where one produced in its second year and the other did not. She felt that they had had identical care and identical sites as well. She felt that moving one bush would be the best solution as they were likely too close together. This is not consistent with some of the gardens I have seen but then hers is not amongst them. Hopefully it will bloom happily in its new location and prove me wrong! Finally there is a pair of tulip trees, in a garden, growing about 30 metres apart. They were transplanted some four or five years ago and have both progressed well until this

year. In early August the bottom leaves of one of the trees began to yellow and eventually die and drop off. Currently more than half of the leaves on the tree have followed suit. There are a few possibilities, poor drainage being a likely one as a result of compaction or clay soils though neither is true in this case. As well, excessive heat can cause sun scorch of the leaves and they will yellow and fall off. Compared to cities like Toronto this also is unlikely to be the cause this year. Iron chlorosis can turn leaves yellow. Iron is what allows trees to manufacture the chlorophyll that produces the green colour in leaves. When suffering from chlorosis the leaves turn a light green and then yellow with the veins in the leaves remaining a darker green as long as the leaf is still alive. The yellow leaf develops brown spots and eventually drops off. Iron chlorosis is said to affect tulip trees in highly alkaline soils as the soil then reduces the availability of iron to the tree. While County soils are largely alkaline due to the limestone underlay, they are generally not in the higher ranges. Tests of soils in other

can also affect a wide variety of trees that are sensitive to highly alkaline soils including birch, flowering dogwood, silver maple, and pin oak. Chlorosis can also affect shrubs that prefer slightly acidic to very acidic soils. Given the range of conditions that might be affecting this particular tree and the fact that we are verging on autumn when all deciduous trees lose their leaves it would seem to be a time for minimum intervention if any. Certainly attention should be paid to watering and drainage. As well aluminum sulphate can be

used to increase the acidity of the soil during the remainder of the growing season. A soil sample in the area of the tree could be sent off both to test the pH in that particular area as well as to test for accessible iron if this kind of testing is easily available. This could assist in planning useful springtime interventions. Fall often provides the time to look back at the past season and plan for improvements next year. Have a gardening question?

areas of the property have indicated a 5.5 to 6.5 pH range and not a 7.5 pH and above range. Too much moisture can wash the iron out with the same affect, but while some parts of Ontario have had excessive rains this year, the County has not. Over watering can also cause chlorosis but this is again not the case in this instance. Mineral deficiencies of boron, magnesium and manganese can also look like chlorosis. And chlorosis can affect one tree or even half a tree or a branch and not the tree beside it. It

Pirates remain unbeaten through three exhibition games Coach has team concentrating on eliminating its bad habits Chad ibbotson

Staff writer

With three wins under their belt in as many preseason games, the Picton Pirates aren't drawing any conclusions. While he said the wins were encouraging, Picton coach and general manager Ryan Woodward said there's still a lot to work on before the puck drops for the regular season. “I still think we need to eliminate some summer habits. The players are getting themselves back into form and getting our conditioning to where it needs to be is important,” he said. The club reeled off close victories over the Campbellford Rebels and the Amherstview Jets before heading to Wellington to again take on the Rebels in the Wellington and District Community Centre last Thursday. The Pirates came away with a 5–0 victory in Thursday's preseason clash. “The guys played a solid game and were able to finish off some opportunities in the offensive end,” Woodward said. “Andrew Pearson looked as sharp as ever in net.” The game began with steady performances from both teams. Some solid forechecking for both saw puck battles relegated to the neutral zone for long stretches. Midway through the first the Rebels had an

(Chad Ibbotson/Gazette staff) opportunity to earn a lead with Miles Levtov in the box for interference, but they weren't able to solve goaltender Andrew Pearson who had 25 saves in the win. Six minutes later the

Rebels again went to the power play with Levtov taking a slashing minor. However, it was Picton who made the most of the following two minutes. Pirates forward Brian Bunnett collected the puck in his end

before rushing into the Campbellford zone. Bunnett danced around four opponents with several good moves before losing the puck at the blue line, where it was picked up by Picton defender Mathew Scott.

Dukes grab pair of road wins in less than 24 hours

Scott sifted along the boards for a moment before firing a shot on Rebels netminder Cole Mahoney who got just a piece with the glove before it trickled in. “Brian Bunnett is a pretty elite player for our

level and he's a threat every time he's on the ice. He has the ability to slow the game down and make plays out of nothing,” Woodward said. “It was just a typical Brian Bunnett play on the PK and Mathew Scott did a good job of getting the puck to the net and putting one behind the goaltender.” The goal seemed to deflate the Rebels with just three minutes remaining in the opening frame. From there the Pirates continued to roll, firing 13 shots on goal in the middle frame with their opponents mustering just five. Ryan Sizer found the back of the net at the 10:57 mark of the second, finishing off a nice place from Evan Greer and Kenny Murduff.n From there, Woodward said, the team continued to get better. “We were getting our legs underneath us and moving the puck,” he said. Bunnett added a goal at 7:29 of the third period with Sizer and Levtov garnering assists. Greer added a powerplay goal with under five minutes remaining. The assists went to Connor Gunter and Bunnett. Gunter would make it 5–0 with a tally at 17:44 with Levi George getting the assist. There are still some things to work on, Woodward said. “I thought we were too fancy for most of the game, trying to make the extra pass. That's something you see at this time of the year.”

Wellington keeps its energy high to defeat Trenton and Kingston in preseason games Jason Parks

Staff writer

After dropping a pair of games to open their OJHL preseason schedule, the Wellington Dukes rebounded nicely to win a pair of games in less than 24 hours. On Friday evening, the Dukes doubled the Golden Hawks in Trenton 4-2 and then, on Saturday afternoon, the club shaded the host Kingston Voyageurs 3-2. While the wins are a solid sign, Wellington Dukes coach and general manager Marty Abrams likes the fact his team had plenty of fight after playing four games in less than five days. “The one thing that came through loud and clear was

that we played four games in five nights and we had lots of energy right up until the last play of the game on Saturday afternoon,” Abrams said. “We were tired but we battled through.” On Saturday, the Dukes rode a hot power play and solid goaltending through 60 minutes and it was enough to get past the host Vees. Power-play goals by Cody Gratton, Trevor Abbott and Nik Coric were over the first 30 minutes allowed Wellington to get out to 3-0 lead. Although Kingston would draw within a goal, Lucas Machalski made his 53 saves stand up as a winning effort. Just over 12 hours prior Cam Nicholl (two), Steven

Deeg and Mike Soucier all scored and Adam Wood made 25 saves in a 4-2 win. Both Wellington netminders were sharp and kept the opposition of the scoreboard at the right times. “Machalski and Wood both played well and they made big saves at the right time and that's always key,” Abrams said. “We are looking for the guy who is going to make the big save at the right time and that's often a momentum switch.” As the club welcomed back a number of players from OHL camp over the weekend, spots on the roster became precious and Abrams sent home three veterans to await trades to other teams. Nicholl, Coric and Josh

Finkelstien no longer figure in the club's game plans and Abrams is weighing the organization's options when it comes to the three players. He added it was a matter of players playing their way on the team and the trio becoming expendable. “In the case of Coric and Nicholl, those players wanted a larger role than we were prepared to offer them and, if that was the case, they both wanted to be closer to home,” Abrams said. “I understand and respect that, but now, with just 22 teams in the league, it can be hard to find a team in the OJHL that has an opening and is close to where they want to be.”

Pirates acquire sophomore forward Cannons from Storm

PIRATES, from page 18

The Pirates will look to continue their solid play versus Amherstview tonight at 7:30 in Wellington. They'll have some returning veterans to help achieve the goal. The Pirates announced a couple of transactions with the Deseronto Storm. The team shipped its underage card to Deseronto, then acquired forward Jordon Cannons in a cash deal. Woodward said he worked with Cannons in Boston at the Chowder Cup and has been impressed with his work at both the Wellington Dukes and Belleville Bulls camps this off season.

“Jordon is a young 17year-old player. He had a great year with Deseronto last year,” he said. “…Jordon is going to be a blue collar guy that works hard, provides energy, and this season he can really take a step forward with his production.” Also coming back into the fold for the upcoming season are Murduff and Bunnett. Woodward said Murduff figures to be another big piece of the club's puzzle this season. “The kid gives it everything he's got every single night,” he said. “He's another leader — a guy with a ton of experience. He's so versatile he's able to play

both forward and defence, provides a big shot from the point on the power play, and creates more depth internally.” Woodward said Bunnett is a special player who can make a difference in any game on any given night. “He's going to provide leadership and a lot of experience and we're excited to have him back in a Pirates uniform,” he said. The Pirates could face one of their most difficult challenges before the season even begins. Under OHA rules the Pirates are able to keep up to four overage players in the lineup. With Brandon

Peever, Ryan Sizer, Jack Davison, Levi George, and Evan Greer each falling in the overage bracket, the Pirates will have to part ways with at least one difference maker. “We've had some internal discussions with our staff and it's something we're going to continue to evaluate,” Woodward said. “We have a pretty good idea of what we're going to do at the end of the day, but with thought it would be fair to give everybody an opportunity to at least come to camp and get some practice time.” Woodward said the decision could come as early as the end of this week.

person of 16-year-old Maurizio Colella of Tottenham. A 2013 fifth round selection of the Bulls, the York Simcoe grad averaged almost a point-per-game with the minor midget Express in 2012-2013. While the club has yet to announce it, it will likely fill its other 16-year-old slot with fellow Bulls draft pick Josh Supryka. While the Bulls giveth, they also taketh away as the club announced this past weekend they had signed Brody Morris to an OHL contract. The 17 year old stood out for the Dukes last season as an underage blueliner, scoring

two goals and adding 10 helpers in 47 games. The Corbyville native was a Belleville draft pick back in 2012. Under the DukeDome: Former Belleville Bull sniper Randy Rowe has been working with the club in an undefined role over the past week. The former 64 goal man in the OHL has over 700 pro games to his credit after retiring this summer...The Dukes will take part in a scaled down version of the Woodchuck Classic Showcase Tournament in Burlington, Vermont this weekend, joining OJHL rivals Trenton and Aurora at the annual event.

Wellington sets sights on Woodchuck Classic in Vermont ‘We played four games in five nights and we had lots of energy right up until the last play...

DUKES, from page 18

Meanwhile, Abbott Girduckis is one of the veterans that is establishing himself as ready for the OJHL-or even higher levels of hockey. After an outstanding OHL camp with the Belleville Bulls in which he looked ready to play a Major Junior shift, Girduckis has returned to Wellington-for now. “He's still in the mix with Belleville but he's not jeopardizing his NCAA status either. He could be offered an OHL contract later this season with Belleville and we will ad-

Danford, Beatty Seeds to play for fastball title

The finals of the Prince Edward County Men's Fastball are set to go this evening on Tyendinaga. In a somewhat surprising final matchup, Danford Contracting will take on the Beatty Seeds Huskers at 7 p.m. In order to take the trophy home, the Frankford based squad will need to win both ends of a double header as the 2013 playdowns are a double elimination affair. Beatty Seeds has yet to drop a game in the second season. Danford punched their ticket to the finals Tuesday night at the Tyendinaga Ballyard as they blanked the Warren's Excavating Ameliasburgh A's 4-0. Adam Danford was masterful from the mound for the Contractors, throwing a seven inning shutout. The A's made it to the

semifinals in stunning fashion as they bounced defending champion Whitepine Watershed last week 4-1. Ian Wallwork picked up the win, fanning 14 and driving in a run to help his cause. On the other diamond Thursday, Beatty Seeds made Danford make the finals the hard way as they shaded the Contractors 3-2. Dan Wallwork had 14 strikeouts in the win and drove home the game's winning run. Mark Norton and Chad Camp had the other rbi's. The B championship will be decided tonight as well. Whitepine and Ameliasburgh will hook up on the back diamond at Tyendinaga at 7 p.m. -Jason Parks, Staff

Community development subcommittee examining County’s branding Committee sees desire for single identity across all municipal sectors Chad ibbotson

Staff writer

The municipality is working to reinforce Prince Edward County's image with a revised community brand. A subcommittee of the community development commission was established in April of this year to review and advise the commission on the current look of the Prince Edward County brand. The subcommittee reported back to the commission in July with a recommendation that it redevelop and formalize the County's brand. On Aug. 27 council approved their plan. Community development director Neil Carbone gave the commission a brief update on the brand development on Tuesday.

“The branding subcommittee that had been appointed previously is looking at potential meeting dates right now to get together to work on what we call a branding benefit package which will be provided to our creative consultants,” he said. Carbone said a draft request for proposal for a creative consultant for the new brand has been completed and the subcommittee will be looking at it. The consultant's work will come through the subcommittee and back to the commission. “It's anticipated that in the next two months we should be at the conclusion of that process,” Carbone said. “That's very good.” The cost of the design work was pegged between

time for Change? A subcommittee of Prince Edward County’s community development commission is studying whether the municipality should replace existing marks like those above with one singular community brand (Prince Edward County) $10,000 and $15,000. The amount has been included in the budgeted amount for the development of the new municipal website, an Aug. 15 report says. The process for the rebranding was outlined in the report to the Aug. 15 committee-of-the-whole meeting. The report says the subcom-

mittee would reference the community development strategic plan data and finding and their collective experience to develop brand positioning statements, promise, messaging, graphical representations and uses. The subcommittee will work with the designers to develop the required logos and graphics.

Those would then be taken to council and the commission for final branding recommendations for approval and implementation. Finally, the branding subcommittee would look to “generate buyin” from the community. In its initial evaluation of the Prince Edward County brand, the subcommittee

found a desire for the creation of a single “community brand” as opposed to separate corporate, tourism, or other independent brands. The Aug. 15 report says the community brand would “prevent the kind of fragmentation and inconsistent messaging that has plagued Prince Edward County's marketing efforts for many years.” “Over time, the logos we have traditionally used corporately — and to a greater degree by community stakeholders — have been applied in so many different ways that it would be impossible to simply trademark or modify what currently exists to suit our purposes,” the report says. “Furthermore, current logos are inconsistent in terms of key messages, design, focus and purpose.”

THE PICTON GAZETTE

Home improvement projects you might want to skip

Upon buying a home, new homeowners understandably want to start making adjustments so the home is a more accurate reflection of who they are. Many of these adjustments are minor, but even minor changes here and there can give a home a whole new feel. While there are many ways a person can turn a home into their own unique oasis, some home improvement projects may not be worth the effort, especially when homeowners decide to sell. Some projects may prove a little too personal, making them less attractive to prospective buyers down the road. Though it's within every homeowner's right to make adjustments to their homes (as long as those adjustments are in adherence to local laws), the following projects might come back to haunt homeowners down the road.

Sports Complex

Sports fans often dream of erecting a backyard basketball court or

adding a tennis court to their property. But such projects are among the more expensive additions a homeowner can make to his or her property, costing more than popular projects like kitchen remodels or room additions. What's more, real estate professionals note that homeowners can expect to recoup little, if any, of the cost of adding a basketball or tennis court to their properties at resale, while more popular projects tend to recoup a substantial amount of a homeowner's initial investment.

Luxury Shower

Installing a luxury shower, such as a multi-headed steam shower, can add a splash of resort-style luxury to your home, but it likely won't add much to your sale price. Though costs for such additions can vary significantly depending on how grand you choose to go, real estate professionals warn that a luxury shower is unlikely to recoup much of its initial cost at resale. If you simply must

give your bathroom a more luxurious look but still want to be a responsible homeowner, look for a low-cost addition. That can take some of the sting out of not recouping much of your investment at resale.

Fully Furnished Home Office

More and more men and women are working from home, and some homeowners might feel that transforming a room in their home into a fully functional home office is a great investment. But some buyers might be turned off by a room that can no longer function as an extra bedroom. The cost of converting a home office into a more traditional bedroom may compel prospective buyers to keep looking or make a lower offer on your home. While a home office might be a good idea, avoid making an exclusive home office room during your renovation.

Home Theater

Few homeowners would scoff at

installing a home theater in their homes, but the impression of home theaters as a luxury only the super wealthy can afford might turn prospective buyers away from your home. Potential buyers may be impressed by a fully functioning home theater complete with surround sound, lighting, a big screen, and all the other fixings synonymous with home theaters, but when they go home to discuss their options, they may feel the home theater is a luxury they can live without and opt for a more affordable home without a theater instead. A dream home means A private tennis court may prove unappealing to different things to differ- prospective home buyers. ent people, so homeowners should personal accents and additions to keep in mind the reactions of poten- their homes if they plan to sell down tial buyers before adding too many the line.
