Mayor predicts another boom year BY JACK EVANS

Belleville – “Fasten your seatbelts,” was Belleville Mayor Taso Christopher’s slogan to the Kiwanis Club of Belleville as he reviewed prospects for 2017. He was attending the club’s longstanding traditional “civic” meeting to discuss city council accomplishments. The meeting, the first of 2017 for the Kiwanis Club, was held Jan. 3 at The Banquet Centre. Infrastructure remains council’s key goal, he stressed, noting that this year it will “focus on the waterfront.” He said Hamilton is Ontario’s poster child when it comes to accessible, open public space per capita. Belleville is already a near rival and council has set its sights on overtaking and surpassing that status starting this year. First, Christopher reviewed 2016 as “monumental” in terms of activity, infrastructure and major project advances and major achievements, including the city’s hosting of the Women’s Mayor Taso Christopher reviewed 2016 and U-19 World Floorball Championships, gave projections for an equally busy and sucwhich drew several hundred players from cessful 2017 at the annual Kiwanis Club of Bel16 countries and set records for attendance leville Civic meeting on Jan. 3. Jack Evans/Metroland thanks to local fans. Then there was the deal to land the Belleville Senators, the Ottawa Senators American Hockey League farm team. The deal makes Belleville one of only three cities in Ontario to have a professional hockey team. Additional expenditures on the Yule lighting display at Jane Forrester Park also drew much favourable attention this past season he said, to a burst of applause from his audience. When he cited the new police station expected to move ahead this year, there was a wave of doubtful chuckles. Other projections for 2017 include the opening of the new Shorelines Casino Belleville, which already has hired more than 200 employees, a major expansion with more jobs at the Procter and Gamble plant, improvements to the northeast industrial park, finishing the new Dundas Street/ Bay Bridge project and more. Christopher stated that Belleville’s unemployment rate is now down to 4.9 per cent and that is much better than neighbouring cities. Finally, he proclaimed this year as the 200th anniversary of the founding of Belleville as a small village. Special activities are planned for later this year to recognize this fact, not counting special events for Canada’s sesquicentennial celebrations. One club member, retired city employee Marj Buck, chided the mayor and council for refusing the club’s application for a $395 grant to help promote its annual Fishing Derby, which provides many dollars into community causes. She said the club made sure its application was in early as it was refused the previous year for being late, then lost out to a for-profit fishing event whose application was itself proposed late. The mayor expressed his regret and stressed that his own interpretation of such grants is that they should be only for not-for-profit events by not-forprofit organizations. He agreed that perhaps the committee’s role should be reviewed. He also gave a nod to volunteers and organizations like Kiwanis. “Without volunteers and organizations like yours, we’d be dead,” he Municipality of Centre said.

OPINION

Musings on Trump, WikiLeaks and Russia When a Fox News reporter asked Donald Trump about WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange back in 2010, just after Assange had released a huge cache of secret US diplomatic cables, the reality TV star had no Gwynne Dyer doubts: “I think it’s disgraceful, I think there should be like the death penalty or something.” Circumstances change, however, and smart people with big brains know when it’s time to switch sides. It was WikilLeaks, once again, that revealed the hacked emails from the Democratic National Committee that did such damage to Hillary Clinton’s campaign last summer. But Trump now readily accepts Assange’s word that he didn’t get those emails from the Russians. Trump has been having a problem with the main US intelligence agencies, which unanimously insist that the Russians did indeed hack the DNC’s emails, and that they passed them to WikiLeaks (through an intermediary) in order to damage Clinton’s presidential election campaign. “Putin and the Russian government developed a clear preference for President-elect Trump,” as the joint intelligence report put it. So Trump was very happy to be able to reply (in a tweet, of course) that “Assange... said Russians did not give him the info!” After all, what motive could Assange have for lying about it? Well, there is the fact that Assange has been living in one room in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London for the past four years, in order to avoid being extradited to the United States on espionage charges that could get him up to 45 years in prison. Donald Trump is the one person who could make all that trouble go away, once he becomes the president, so doing him a favour now might be a wise move on Assange’s part. Assange would not even have to lie outright, because the Russians would obviously never give him the emails directly. There would have to be one or more persons in between, because WikiLeaks is not in the business of taking leaks from governments. Moreover, as Trump points out, the Central Intelligence Agency, the National Security Agency and the Federal Bureau of Investigation are the same organisations that cooked up the evidence for Saddam Hussein’s “weapons of mass destruction” so that President George W. Bush could invade Iraq. Nevertheless, the US intelligence agencies are probably right to blame their Russian coun-

terparts for the hacks that caused the Clinton campaign such problems. President Vladimir Putin has been quite open about preferring Trump to Clinton, and the leaks definitely gave a boost to Trump’s election campaign in late July and August. On the other hand, that happened so long before the actual vote in November that it’s impossible to say if it had any effect on the outcome. The event that probably did give Trump his very narrow margin of victory (100,000 votes spread between three key swing states) was FBI director James Comey’s bizarre decision to declare that Hillary Clinton was facing another investigation only eleven days before the vote. It’s all might-have-beens, and the only reason it has become controversial is Trump’s extremely thin skin. He is questioning the intelligence services’ conclusions about Russian interference because he believes (wrongly) that they undermine the validity of his election victory. But his strong sympathy for the Russian position, though driven by perceived personal interests, is a refreshing break from the usual Washington paranoia. He said it himself (in another tweet): “Having a good relationship with Russia is a good thing, not a bad thing. Only stupid people or fools would think that it is bad. We have enough problems around the world without yet another one.” This is a perfectly reasonable statement. Trump’s views on China give cause for alarm, but his desire for a reconciliation with Russia makes more sense than the reflex hostility that both Hillary Clinton and the US intelligence services bring to the relationship. Vladimir Putin is a player, and sometimes he plays rough, but his recent meddling in the American election is far less than the massive US interference in Russian elections in the 1990s. In seeking a rapprochement with Moscow, Trump should not make the mistake of accepting Russia’s illegal annexation of Crimea. Changing borders by force (even if most of the local population approves of it) has been banned by international law for more than half a century, and we should not start making exceptions to that rule now. But while the United States never accepted the old Soviet Union’s illegal annexation of the Baltic states in 1940, it did not let that stand in the way of improving the US-Soviet relationship as the Cold War drew to an end. There is much that the United States and Russia could usefully co-operate on now, starting with putting an end to the war in Syria. On this issue, at least, Trump is right and Obama, Clinton and the spooks are wrong.

legal. But generally opioid drugs act on the nervous system to relieve pain. Continued use and abuse can lead to withdrawal symptoms and physical dependence. Health care workers in Ontario have observed a rising number of cases where opioids have been abused, in some cases leading to death, since about 2002, Oglaza said. And the statistics for Hastings Country show that it’s among the regions most heavily impacted by this rise of opioid dependency. “We are definitely in the top third (in Ontario), which is not where we want to be,� he said. Another concern, Oglaza said, is that the opioid drug use is highest in the 24 to 44 age bracket. “These are people who would normally be in the prime of their lives, the peak of their careers,� he said. “The impact is on everything; their families, economic development. It’s huge.� Board members pondered how revealing some of the statistics are. The fact that more than 10,000 people in the county were on opioids in one year

may or may not be alarming, given that in some cases it could be prescribed by a doctor and taken properly for a short period of time. However board member Egerton Boyce raised a point, confirmed by Oglaza, which was that the data doesn’t reflect those who accessed the drugs through a benefits package from an employer. In that case, the number of users (and abusers) could be much higher. But no one argued that the number of E.R. visits and deaths is concerning. The deputation marked the second time in a year that the board had heard about opioid abuse. Dr. Kieran Moore, an associate medical officer of health from Kingston, visited the local health board last May to talk about what he called an “epidemic� of people dying from non-intentional overdoes of doctorprescribed opioid drugs. In Ontario, there were 5,383 non-intentional opioid-related deaths from 2002 to 2014, Moore said. These shocking statistics are prompting health care officials to

think of new ways to treat the problem. The health unit recently launched a community-based Naloxone-distribution program called The Lifesaver program. Anyone can pick up a kit from the health unit for someone experiencing an opioid drug program. The kit teaches them how to inject Naloxone, a drug considered an antidote to opioids. But Oglaza admitted that the program has been underutilized so far. Since its launch in September, only about 50 kits have been given out, which equates to a small drop in a bucket considering there are more than 10,000 opioid drug users in the county. However, he added that the health unit is now working with staff at the Local Health Integration Network to make more kits available. Hastings Prince Edward Public Health also expects to invite local physicians to a session on Feb. 8, where they can discuss how to better handle opioid drug prescriptions.

Move and Groove keeps kids active in Hastings BY BILL FREEMAN

Hastings - The weather outside is frightful, but that doesn’t mean preschoolers can’t get physically active, stretch out their muscles and groove to some music. The YMCA’s Move and Groove program at the Hastings Ontario Early Years Centre is a perfect blend of music and movement with songs, rhymes and even a little yoga thrown into the weekly mix. “The weather isn’t conducive to being outside so moving and gross motor activities (are critical),” says the Sam Kelly of YMCA Northumberland, who delivers the Thursday morning program. Kelly “incorporates balance, coordination and movement” into a program that also uses songs, rhymes, games and a little bit of basic yoga to keep children moving and engaged. “It’s important to keep kids moving at this time of year,” she says. “The kids can get some of their energy out when they’re not able to get outside.”

FOR EVERY REASON AND EVERY SEASON

TM

“One of the caregivers who uses the Hastings Early Years Centre asked if I could do something that incorporated physical activity during winter. I try to keep things fresh and new and keep them moving and engaged and involved in the rhymes.” Kelly has yoga cards that will help children replicate animal moves through various poses. The children’s yoga program at the YMCA in Cobourg is very successful, she says. “It gets a lot of feedback. Maybe it’s something that can come here someday.” Kelly says many of the things she does in Move and Groove can be used by Hastings OEYC supervisor Angie Nestoruk during the popular Friday morning “Let’s Get Physical” gatherings at the Hastings Filed House. The free six-week program is tailored to the number of children who drop into the centre Thursdays at 10 a.m., Kelly says. “It’s based on the group that’s here. I come prepared but sometimes we just wing it.” There’s no preregistration. For more information, call 705-696-1353.

PARAMEDICS DELIVER BABY Continued from Page 1

Coun. Denyes’ motion to nix grant committee fails BY STEPHEN PETRICK

Belleville – A city councillor’s motion to restructure Belleville’s grant committee was defeated Monday, following a tense and emotional debate. Coun. Jackie Denyes presented a motion asking that “all grant committee applications be routed through the Economic and Strategic Initiatives office.” The motion stems back to Denyes’s frustration over a Dec. 12 decision made by council to grant $32,000 of city money to the Berkley B1 Fishing series, a national level fishing derby being planned in Belleville over the Canada Day weekend. Denyes, using stern words, stressed that the normal grant application process wasn’t followed in this event. Organizers for the tournament did not bring information or financial statements to the grant committee ahead of time, as a local applicant would have been expected to. Instead, the motion got to the council table – and was eventually supported by the majority of council – after the grant committee held a special meeting and granted approval for economic development officer Karen Poste to speak to council personally and request the funding at the Dec. 12

council meeting. Denyes argued that process set a new precedent and therefore all future applications should be dealt with through Poste’s office. Denyes said she was “loathe to suggest a busy city manager should take on this role” but believed this would “create a level playing field.” Yet, in the end, all six other councillors at the meeting, plus Mayor Taso Christopher, declined to support the motion. They admitted the application was handled differently, but the democratic process was still followed. Council voted to grant the money before it went to a regularly scheduled grant committee meaning, because tournament organizers said they needed the money soon. “This was not a willy-nilly decision,” said Coun. Mitch Panciuk, who chairs the grant committee. City CAO Rick Kester told council that Poste’s job duties were recently redefined to place an emphasis on promoting tourism growth in the city, so she and the grant committee seemed to make an appropriate decision to explore forgoing the normal process. “It’s part of the role for that depart- Coun.

Stirling-Rawdon clerk honoured for years of service BY TERRY MCNAMEE

Stirling – A quarter-century of service as an employee of the Township of Stirling-Rawdon was recognized on Monday, Jan. 9, when Township Clerk Tawnya Donald was honoured by council. Mayor Rodney Cooney said Donald began working for the Town of Rawdon in 1991, and stayed on after Rawdon and Stirling were amalgamated as a township in 1998. During that time, he said, she has held many different positions, working her way up to her present position as township clerk. Cooney said Donald is quiet and seldom states an opinion, but when she does, “It’s usually because we’re headed down the rocky path,” and that she has been a huge help to him, to council and to the entire municipality. The Mayor presented Donald with an inscribed gold watch and a bouquet of flowers. Members of her family, including four granddaughters, were in the audience to see the presentation.

In other council news, January was proclaimed as National Alzheimer Awareness Month in Stirling- Rawdon as requested by the Alzheimer Society of Hastings-Prince Edward. In a letter to council, the society noted that more than 564,000 Canadians are living with some form of dementia, with about 25,000 new cases being diagnosed each year. The proclamation is intended to raise awareness of the disease and to help people create more dementia-friendly communities to reduce the burden on families who are affected. Council also approved the minutes of the December Parks and Recreation Committee meeting, during which the committee agreed to purchase new benches and garbage cans for municipal parks as need. The Business Improvement Association has agreed to cover half the cost for up to $5,000, for these purchases. Additional maintenance also will be needed for the coming season, including but not limited to signage, asphalt sealing on tennis and basketball courts and sand for all play structures.

Two draft budget options on the table for Crowe Valley authority SUE DICKENS

Marmora - "I do believe that we are essentially at some kind of crossroad here," said General Manager Tim Pidduck of the Crowe Valley Conservation Authority (CVCA). He was addressing the board at their recent meeting after presenting two preliminary draft budgets for 2017 for consideration. Option one has a projected increase of 7.96 per cent and option two an increase of six per cent. Pidduck began by stating, "What we've noticed is one of our primary programs, the regulation program . . . .I think it's a good news story in a way if I can put this spin on it, we're doing a really good job with it." The board is currently conducting a service delivery review which impacts the budget too. He said that the "regulation business" of the authority has grown by 20 per cent from 185 permits issued in 2015 to 220 in 2016. Option one (to $742,567) resolves an operational challenge and option two ($724,462) tackles ongoing capital concerns. A cost of living increase of 1.5 per Two preliminary draft budgets for 2017, each with different options, were discussed at a cent is included for staff in both budget options. recent meeting of The Crowe Valley Conservation Authority and the decision was made Pidduck recommended option one. "In to defer until the Jan. 19 meeting. my mind because of the work we've put Sue Dickens/Metroland into the regulations program in particular, the amount of work, time and effort to try to change the program and turn it around and be what it needs to be for a number of www.northumberlandcounty.ca

municipalities, I think if we don't chose the operational option we will be taking a step backward." Board member Jim O'Shea of the Township of North Kawartha commented, "I know that right now our (township) budget for this year has already allocated six per cent. Personally I don't want to have to go and argue for more than that because I don't think it will be listened to." The idea of a road trip by Pidduck (accompanied by Partridge) to each of the 10 municipalities in the watershed that are represented on the board was put on the table for discussion. Board member Emma Kearns of the Township of Paraday said her municipality would want to hear why the 7.96 per cent would be a better option. Vice-Chair Ron Gerow, mayor of the Township of Havelock-Belmont-Methuen, said his council would also want an explanation "line by line of the 24 per cent increase over the last four years," and of the fee schedule. He stated he is adamant his municipality will not go into debt. He is not sure the road trip will matter, "Because my bank book is empty. I can't balance something that is not there . . . The day of reckoning is here." As the public meeting came to an end the wheels were in motion for the road trip and the two draft budgets were deferred until the next board meeting on Jan. 19 at 10 a.m.

Todd Smith wins PC Party nomination to run for MPP in Bay of Quinte STEPHEN PETRICK

Todd Smith speaks from his seat at Queen’s Park.

Belleville – Progressive Conservatives in the newly formed provincial Bay of Quinte riding have nominated current Prince Edward-Hastings MPP Todd Smith as their candidate for the next provincial election. The news is no surprise, as Smith is in his second term as an MPP and had previously announced his desire to run for reelection in the new riding. The nomination means he’ll represent the PCs on the ballot for the next provincial election, which the ruling Liberals must call by the fall of 2018 at the latest. “It’s an unbelievable honour to be nominated to represent local Progressive Conservatives in the next election,” Smith said, during a recent gathering in Downtown Belleville, where he earned the nomination by acclamation. “The next election is about the future of this province. It’s an honour to represent the people of this region, but it’s my goal to be representing them from the government benches after 2018.” Stephen Petrick/Metroland Bay of Quinte Progressive

Conservative Association President Janet Harnden presided over the meeting that nominated Smith, who was uncontested. Harnden said Smith’s work in his community makes him an asset to both the riding, but especially a future PC government. “We have seen Todd’s work ethic first hand and, as the riding association president, I couldn’t have a better candidate running for us in 2018. We’re going to need Todd helping the party defeat the (Premiere Kathleen) Wynne Liberals ...” After accepting the nomination, Smith took aim at the Liberal Cap-and-Trade program which came into effect on New Year’s Day. Ontario PC Leader Patrick Brown also lauded Smith’s nomination.

Heir to a kingdom exiled to Madoc focus of new play SUE DICKENS

Warkworth- A staged reading telling the "bizarre and true story" of Esca Brooke, reportedly the rightful heir to a kingdom in Sarawak, is coming to the village town hall this month. This new play, "Canadian Rajah," by wellknown playwright Dave Carley of Toronto, tells the true story of Brooke and how he was exiled to Madoc more than a century ago. He should have inherited a kingdom in faraway Sarawak, now part of Malaysia, but instead was exiled to Canada and arrived to live in that village. "Canadian Rajah," starring Chick Reid of Warkworth and "a rising new actor," Jon De Leon from Toronto, is being brought here by Ontario Street Theatre of Port Hope. Reid, who is soon heading off to star in a number of Shaw Festival productions, has a national career that has featured 10 seasons at the Stratford Shakespeare Festival, as well as many roles across Canada and the United States - including on Broadway.

Jon De Leon, who plays Esca Brooke, has performed at Stratford Festival and Toronto's Factory Theatre. He has also appeared on a number of television shows, including "Rookie Blue" and "Flashpoint." Carley describes the play as "one of the more bizarre stories in Canadian history. It shouldn't have had a happy ending, but it did." To learn more about this play go to the playwright's website: http://davecarley.com/ plays-full-length/canadian-rajah/ Canadian Rajah is being presented on Sat., Jan. 28 at 7 p.m., and Sun., Jan. 29 at 2 p.m. Both performances are at the Warkworth Town Hall. Tickets are $25, a portion of which goes to Ah! Arts and Heritage Centre of Warkworth. Tickets can be reserved by calling Ontario Street Theatre at 905-885-8042, or emailing ontariostreettheatre@gmail.com They can also be purchased at Ah!; The General Store on Main Street, Warkworth; or online at canadianrajahwarkworth.eventbrite.ca

OPP solve stolen pickup, multiple thefts Marmora - A joint investigation by the Central Hastings OPP and Peterborough County OPP has solved Warkworth’s own Chick Reid will be one of the stars in the new play “Canadian Rajah”. Photo submitted multiple thefts including a stolen pickup truck. In mid-December of 2016 the Central Hastings OPP received numerous complaints of thefts from unlocked vehicles that occurred overnight on Crowe Valley Court, Crawford Street, William Street, Savage Crescent and Forsyth Street in the Municipality of Marmora and Lake. In addition a 2003 blue GMC Sierra 1500 pickup truck was stolen from a driveway on Cameron Street and a green 2000 Honda TRX450 all-terrain vehicle was stoDementia-Hearing Loss Link Warrants Routine Hearing Checks, len from a residential garage on Norwood Road.

loss is associated with accelerated cognitive decline in older adults. Conducted by Johns Hopkins otologist and epidemiologist Frank Lin, M.D., Ph.D. and other hearing experts, the study found that older adults with hearing loss are more likely to develop problems thinking and remembering than older adults whose hearing is normal. Volunteers with hearing loss, underwent repeated cognition tests over six years and were found to have cognitive abilities that declined some 30 to 40 percent faster than in those whose hearing was normal. The researchers also found that the greater the hearing loss, the greater the levels of declining brain function.

in progress on Peterborough County Road 504. The suspect attempted to escape in a stolen pickup truck and officers had to break a window of the truck in order to take custody of the man. As a result 31 year old Shawn Edward Cromwell of Peterborough was arrested and charged with: break, enter and theft under $5000; possession of property obtained by crime under $5000 (stolen pickup); fail to comply with probation order (two counts); and obstructing police Cromwell was held in custody pending a bail hearing in the Ontario Court of Justice in Peterborough. Members of Central Hastings OPP and Peterborough County OPP further conducted a joint investigation which resulted in the recovery of property involved in the thefts from vehicles and the stolen pickup truck from the Marmora area. As a result Cromwell has also been charged with: break and enter; theft of a vehicle Under $5000 (ATV); theft under $5000 (four counts).

Similarly, a 2011 study found that seniors with hearing loss are significantly more likely to develop dementia over time than those who retain their hearing. The study also found that the more hearing loss they had, the higher their likelihood of developing dementia. As people move through middle age and their later years, it is reasonable for them to get their hearing tested annually. If there is a hearing loss, it is best to take it seriously and treat it.

New boat would help keep Quinte Search & Rescue afloat BY STEPHEN PETRICK

Belleville – An organization that helps keep Belleville’s waterways safe is seeking city support to help keep it afloat. Paul Kerwin, unit leader of Quinte Search and Rescue, gave a deputation to city council on Monday, Jan. 9, where he sought support for the purchase of a new 18-foot boat, valued at about $30,000. The organization responds to water emergencies 24/7 in an area that spans from Napanee to the Trent-Severn waterway area. Yet, it has a limited budget – partially raised through fundraising – and crew members are not compensated for their work. They work in tandem with the Belleville Fire Department and

their primary job is to bring people from water into the hands of firefighters, who are thoroughly trained on handing water emergencies. Kerwin said the new vessel would replace one of the two vessels Quinte Search & Rescue currently uses. “It’s old, it’s done it’s time,” he said. He also said the new boat is needed soon, as the unit is expecting a busy summer. “Being the anniversary of this great nation, we’re going to have a lot more traffic on the waterways,” Kerwin said. Council did not make a decision on the funding request, but accepted the deputation and referred it to staff, so it can eventually go to the grant committee.

Hastings Prince Edward Public Health launches ‘Wouldurather contest’ to encourage smoke-free lifestyles There’s a cash incentive to kick the smokes in 2017. Hastings Prince Edward Public Health is hosting the six-week “Wouldurather… contest” being offered to young adults across Ontario through Leave the Pack Behind. The contest is held annually to support young adults in their efforts to quit smoking, cut back on their smoking, refrain from smoking while drinking, or to remain smoke free. This year, participants have the chance to win grand prizes worth up to $5,000. To sign up or learn more details visit, http://wouldurather.ca Today in Ontario, young adults have the highest smoking prevalence at 18.4 per cent compared to the general population at 16.1 per cent. “Nothing makes the tobacco companies happier than someone starting to smoke at a young age and continu-

Low water warning ends but levels still low Belleville – Recent rainfall and improved stream flows mean the Quinte Conservation watersheds are no longer in a Low Water Condition warning. General Manager Terry Murphy says, “Removing the warning does not mean that water supply levels have returned to normal for all people in the watershed. We are still hearing reports that some residents have wells that are dry or extremely low. There is a concern for wells that remain low or dry during the winter months, as they may not recover until the spring.” Murphy adds, “We are still concerned for the water levels in the area and will continue to monitor precipitation and stream flows. We will need a lot of snow over the winter and a good spring runoff to return our groundwater supplies to their normal conditions.”

ing into later in life,” says David Patterson, Health Promoter with Public Health. “We know that continued tobacco use through young adulthood is a predictor for future tobacco use. If you’re 28 and you’ve been smoking since your teens, that’s a decade of smoking. Even though young adults may not see the negative effects of smoking immediately, quitting early or avoiding taking up the habit in the first place is the best way to steer clear of the damaging consequences from years of smoking.” Last year, more than 8,600 young adults entered the Wouldurather…

contest! A 2011 evaluation of the contest suggests that up to 20 per cent of individuals who enter the contest will quit smoking. Individuals who attempt to quit on their own, without any support, generally experience a lower success rate. Leave The Pack Behind recognizes that not everyone is ready to quit smoking entirely, which is why the Wouldurather… contest offers the opportunity for contestants to choose from one of four categories. Young adults

can quit smoking entirely (Quit For Good), cut their smoking in half (Keep The Count) or refrain from smoking any time they are drinking or socializing (Party Without The Smoke). Individuals who don’t smoke can also enter the contest by pledging to remain smoke free (Don’t Start and Win). All contestants have the option to identify a “buddy” who will act as social support for the duration of the

contest and will receive support emails tailored to their goal. Wouldurather… is available to all young adults ages 18-29 who are residents of Ontario. Registration is open at Wouldurather.ca until January 22 at 11:59 p.m. Leave The Pack Behind is an agetailored tobacco control initiative offered year-round in Ontario.

10 of 22 Build Belleville projects remain, as 2017 begins BY STEPHEN PETRICK

Belleville – It’s been about three years now since construction workers started putting on orange vests and shovels started hitting the ground, as a result of the major city investment known as Build Belleville. Build Belleville is the title for a collection of 22 major infrastructure projects, which are expected to collectively cost the city taxpayers more than $92 million over several years. But it’s necessary work, as it’s allowing the city to replace crumbling bridges and outdated watermains and build new roads to accommodate traffic growth. When the calendar flipped to 2017, 12 of 22 projects on the list had been completed, as outlined at www.buildbelleville.ca The titles of the completed projects are as follows: Tracey/Sideny street intersection; North Park Gardens, the Bell/Sidney Street intersection; Old Highway 2, Old Madoc Road, Boundary Road, Farnham Road, North East Feedermain, Solar Fit, College Street East extension, West Riverside Trail, Environmental Remediation, and West Riverside Trail. Two more projects – both high profile ones – are well on their way to completion. Only cosmetic work remains for the Bay Bridge Road and Dundas Street West project. The $17.4 million project involved the construction of a new Bay Bridge and the widening of Dundas Street. The road work is complete and work to make the area more aesthetically pleasing will con-

tinue in the spring. The City Centre Revitalization Project, meanwhile, is two-third complete. Front Street, from Bridge Street to the northern tip has been completely revamped. Phase 3 work will take place on Front Street, south of Bridge Street, and on Bridge Street, from Front to Pinnacle. That work is expected to be split over the next two summers. Work on the final eight projects is expected to ramp up over the coming months. Here’s a look at four of those projects – Herchimer Avenue, Bronk Road, Mineral Road/ Maitland Drive and Foxboro Bridge. We’ll report on four other projects – Grass Boulevard, the Northeast Industrial Park, the Wastewater Treatment Plant and the new Belleville Police station – in a future edition.

Crowe Valley Conservation Authority debates service delivery Marmora- A service delivery review was on the table at a recent meeting of the Crowe Valley Conservation Authority, and it led to a great deal of discussion by board members. "Do we really need to continue to be in this business/service?" was the first of 10 questions that were asked of neighbouring authorities to help with the process. The discussion soon made it obvious that some board members are struggling with how to move forward. "I'd like to compliment staff on what is here. It's given a ton of in-

formation I certainly didn't have and has raised some questions," said Cathy Redden, representing the Municipality of Trent Hills. She provided the template of questions for staff to use. "There's a lot to be learned by borrowing work from other conservation authorities." Hiring a consultant for the process was debated. General manager Tim Pidduck of the CVCA told the board, "I think, collectively, we can come up with our own terms of reference without too much trouble." Vice-chair Ron Gerow, Mayor of

the Township of Havelock-BelmontMethuen, spoke at length. "Whatever road the board is going to go down in term of the service review ... I just want to make sure that members all know that my municipal council and my personal view on this is we still have concerns." Budget considerations were also brought forward. "I don't have a money tree and any money I might pick off the tree, the leaves, it has got to go to something really meaningful," noted Gerow. Board member Jim O'Shea, representing the Township of North Kawartha, commented, "To me, an

awful lot of what we're doing here is really about money and having enough funds to survive on. I'm quite a believer that any organization should be, as much as possible, self supporting." He talked about the need to re-examine the fee structure. "If we're not getting the money from the government and we already get it from the municipalities, then our only other option is the fee structure to make up the difference." Gerow responded, "We've already increased our rates structure; we've created new rates that weren't even in existence, and yet we're still fall-

ing behind. That is a major red flag for me." Suzanne Partridge, CVCA board chair representing the Municipality of Highlands East, commented, "This is the final year of the six per cent increase across the board that municipalities agreed to, so we have to know what we're doing next year." As the discussion concluded, the board voted and approved a motion to move forward with terms of reference for the service delivery review process and that staffs bring a report with a timeline to the next meeting, which will be held on Jan. 19 at 10 a.m.

First in speakers series is tonight at Ivanhoe The Hastings Stewardship Council is launching its first event in its 2017 Winter Speaker Series at the Huntington Hall in Ivanhoe. Titled ‘Our Watershed Health and BioGeography’ the first in the speaker series events takes place Jan. 12 with Tim Trustham, Quinte Conservation, and Janet Noyes, Lower Trent Conservation, as speakers. After a dry-as-dust summer, “we could all use some enlightenment about our watershed,” said a release from the Stewardship Council. “On January 12, come to Our Watershed Health and BioGeography, a multi-faceted presentation on the Quinte and Lower Trent Watersheds.” Tim Trustham, ecologist and planner with Quinte Conservation, will present a biogeographical approach to learning about the watershed. Plants and animals often vary along geographical lines, for instance, certain plants grow best at a particular elevation. Geological factors (such as bedrock and soils) relate directly to biological features (such as plant and animal species). All of these things interact and influence watershed condi-

tions and health. His slide show will illustrate how this works. Janet Noyes, manager of water resources with Lower Trent Conservation, will present an update on the low water conditions for the Lower Trent watershed (all seven municipalities including Centre Hastings, Stirling-Rawdon and City of Quinte West). Noyes will also give an overview of the Ontario Low Water Response Program and the roles played by the province, conservation authorities and municipalities. The council invites the public to come out to learn about the region’s watersheds on Thursday, Jan. 12 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Huntington Veterans Community Hall, 11379 Highway 62, in Ivanhoe. An entrance fee of $5 per person (or a donation) will help cover costs. Children are free. The Hastings Stewardship Council “promotes a healthy and sustainable environment that contributes to the viability of agricultural and natural resources in Hastings County.” For more information, contact Matt Caruana at 613-3919034 or info@hastingsstewardship.ca. Or visit hastingsstew- This frog at the Frink Centre, Thurlow, is a sign of a healthy wetland. ardship.ca.

Campbellford – Rotary’s highest recognition of a person’s outstanding commitment to their club and community, the Paul Harris Fellowship, has been awarded to local businessman Scott Drummond. Marion Fennell, director with the Rotary Club of Campbellford and a past president, made the presentation at their annual holiday celebration dinner at the Rotary hall. “Scott is a longtime member of this club and has always supported the club in many ways as well as being a big supporter of the community. Scott sponsors soccer teams, baseball and hockey teams, the high school, the hospital foundation, the rotary golf tournaments and more,” she said, adding, “Scott I know these are only a few of the people and organizations that you

have supported over the years and continue to support and with this award we would like to acknowledge and thank for your continuous work for your club and community.” Fennell noted with a grin that, “He supplies us with a brand new truck every year to pull the float for the Santa Claus parade and he continues to do this every year even though we bring a brand new truck back covered in mud.” He is the president and dealer owner of Scott Drummond Motors Ltd. Accepting the award, he said, “I don’t have much to say. I never feel like I am a very good Rotarian compared to everybody else seeing all the work that everybody else does to what I do and I am pretty humbled so thank you very much.”

Hitting the blades benefits food bank in Quinte West BY ERIN STEWART

Quinte West – Public skating in Quinte West has become a popular activity this season after the city decided to make public skating free for the community, requesting a donation for the Trenton Care and Share Food Bank instead. “It has been, in our opinion, a huge success,” said Bob Forder, manager of buildings and facilities in Quinte West. “To date we’ve had over 2,100 skaters and they’ve brought in over 1,000 lbs. of food for the food bank, so we’ve seen a marked increase over the past,” he said. Having 2,100 skaters at this point in the season is about three times more than what they saw last year, said Forder, estimating they had about 500-750 skaters at this point last season. It’s great to see more people of all ages out to skate this season, said Forder, and they’ve even needed to have double the personal to man the public skating times this year because of the increase in people. “Let’s get an active community and let’s utilize the ice, the community is out, they’re staying active,” he said. Forder said he is hoping to keep public skating free in the future as well. “I’m hoping that we don’t diminish it in any way, shape or form,” he said. “It’s beyond

my expectation and I’m sure that council will be very pleased with the numbers when I report them.” With ice now being kept in the Duncan McDonald Memorial Gardens year round, Forder said he would also like free public skating to continue into the summer months. Jennifer Mitchell, from Carrying Place, brought her children to the Frankford Arena to skate during the Tim Horton’s sponsored free skate on Thursday Jan. 5, where about 30 people were out to skate. Mitchell said she has brought her kids out to skate a couple times this season and she appreciates that it’s free. “It’s good because people get out and get active,” she said. “We did come last year and I think the year before as well, there’s more people this year, definitely more.” Mitchel said the free public skating times could be better advertised to get the word out there but having free public skating is definitely an incentive for people to get out more often. “It’s free so you’re more likely to come more often as well,” she said. “They should try to continue it if they can and get more people out and active in the community, that would be a good idea.” To find out the free public skating times in Frankford and Trenton, go to quintewest.ca and click on the community events calendar.
