News - Belleville - Although the Canadian Forces’ official mission in Afghanistan has been over for some time, an event in the city this past weekend reminded people that the effects of the lengthy war linger on for thousands of troops and their families. A brigade of military veterans jogged into town Sunday as part of Soldier On, a run aimed to raise awareness and funds for soldiers wounded in military missions. The run is supported by the Canadian Forces Morale and Warfare Services (CFMWS), an Ottawa-based unit that runs programs to help veterans transition back into civilian life.






The group consisted of about 20 veterans, all wearing black jackets with a red “Soldier On” attached to the chest. They started earlier in the day at CFB Trenton, a special location given that it’s the base fallen soldiers were carried home to during the Afghanistan mission and the official start of the “Highway of Heroes.” After the Belleville ceremony, the group continued on to Napanee. They were to continue running through the week and arrive in Ottawa on Friday, May 9. They’re expected to hand the flag over to Prime Minister Stephen Harper that day, as part of National Day of Honour ceremonies. In an interview following the ceremony,

Whelan spoke about the need to support veterans as they attempt to build a normal life after experiencing the trauma of war. He said many veterans returned from Afghanistan with visible injuries, but many also returned home with less visible injuries, such as post-traumatic stress disorder, or other mental health conditions. He said the Canadian Forces’ Joint Personal Support Unit helps link these veterans to support services they need, and provides education and vocational opportunities to help them regain a normal life. Please see “Veterans” page 10




GOOD LUCK... -17 40

“Everyone of these men and women have experienced loss in one form or another,” said Colonel Steve Whelan, a Canadian Forces member who works with the Chief of Military Personnel in Ottawa. He was addressing a crowd of a couple of hundred people who braved a frigid spring wind to gather at Market Square, behind City Hall, for the 11:30 a.m. ceremony. Shortly before, the brigade entered the market area to a respectful applause and presented Mayor Neil Ellis with a flag that was originally hung at the International Security Assistance Force base in Afghanistan during the war.

Events - From April through October, communities all across Ontario open the doors of some of our most intriguing and charming heritage sites absolutely free of charge, for Doors Open, attracting large crowds of residents and visitors alike to discover the province’s hidden heritage treasures— some of which have never been open to the public. Local organizers are very excited to be taking a regional approach for this event in 2014. “For the first time ever, we’re doing Doors Open regionally, encompassing sites in Belleville, Prince Edward County and Quinte West,” says Quinte West’s Tourism Coordinator, Jennifer Rushlow. “This will enable us to link stories all across the Bay of Quinte.” “The regional approach lends itself very well to the theme proposed by Ontario Heritage Trust of the First World War,” adds Stanley Jones, the chair of Heritage Belleville.  “We are now actively searching for sites to participate and therefore looking primarily for sites that could be tied into World War I.  But anything that relates to World War II or has a military theme would also be advantageous.  It is not necessary for all sites to reflect the theme, but sites should look for a link if there is one that can be highlighted.” Jennifer Lyons, the head curator of museums in Prince Edward County is also excited about this regional approach.  “Taking Doors Open to a regional level will allow us to offer more sites as well, with over 20 already planned, there will be lots to see, do and explore during the event.  The National Air Force Museum

in Quinte West, the historic Belleville Club in downtown Belleville and The Old Boys’ Entrance Building at the Picton Faigrounds in Prince Edward County are just a few of the exciting locations that are already on the roster. For the full listing, people can search Bay of Quinte at <>. In 2002, the Ontario Heritage Trust launched Doors Open Ontario, the first province-wide event of its kind in Canada. The Doors Open concept continues to spread across North America with events now being held in Newfoundland, Alberta, Massachusetts, Western New York State, New York City and Denver. Since the program was launched in 2002, over five million visits have been made to heritage sites participating in this exciting initiative. Doors Open Ontario, now considered a cultural phenomenon, will continue in 2014 with hundreds of communities participating across the province.  For more information on locations being featured in your area, or to register your location, contact the representative nearest you: 

News - Trenton - Students from St. Mary’s Catholic School in Trenton are leading the fight against juvenile diabetes. Located in the heart of Trenton, the school recently raised $2,108.82 through a one-month project held during Lent. The money was generated through donations to school activities such as Loonie Dodge Ball, Toonie Tag, and Pizza Days. Directed to the Canadian Diabetes Association to help local children with Type 1 (juvenile) Diabetes, the money will be used to send local children with Type 1 Diabetes to a summer medical camp (D- Camps) where they will learn the skills they need to manage this chronic disease. Children from Trenton attend Camp Banting or Camp Huronda. “This donation by students at St. Mary’s Catholic School will improve the lives of children living with Type 1 Diabetes in Trenton,” says Catherine Reynolds, Mission Funding Coordinator with the Canadian Diabetes Association. “The Canadian Diabetes Association makes the most of every donation and we

are committed to fulfilling our mandate to lead the fight against diabetes. We are grateful for St. Mary’s Catholic School’s trust to help Canadian children live healthier lives. We promise to uphold that trust.” The Canadian Diabetes Association’s D-Camps support youth in the development of strong diabetes self-management skills, while allowing them to connect with other children living with diabetes and enjoy traditional camping activities in a safe environment. To learn more, visit <dcamps. ca> or call 1- 800-BANTING (226-8464). This donation by St. Mary’s Catholic School was presented to the Canadian Diabetes Association during a school assembly on May 1. At this time, the community met the students who have made an impact in the diabetes community. At least one student at St. Mary’s Catholic School has Type 1 Diabetes. In southeast Ontario, more than 31,000 people are living with diabetes and more than 369,000 are at risk of developing the disease.

Lots of questions remain on pumped storage support their right to have (and voice) their opinions and specifically question the logic of our elected councils decisions. In my opinion, our council generally appears to be doing a fairly good job, but I was surprised to see that on the issue of the Pumped Storage Project, the decision to support it and proceed was taken by council in private before it was even made public. Clearly a project of this magnitude should have warrant-

The promotional story sounds good, use cheap energy at night to create energy in the day when it’s more expensive. But, do we currently need more energy and what are the alternatives? I have read that since 2008 the demand for power has dropped sharply, that our daily capacity is around 25,000 megawatts and our average daily usage peaks around 21,000 megawatts. I’m sure some days our usage exceeds capacity owing to weather or mainte-

Citizens are being kept in the dark because the medicines they need are too expensive or do not exist. Across the world, health advocates claim it is a matter of life and death that we say NO to these changes in the TPP. Transparency should be the essential characteristic of democratic government yet citizens are being kept in the dark about these negotiations whereas corporations are consulted and made privy to details.  This lack of transparency will prevent democratic checks and balances. We urge the Canadian government to ensure that the final text of the TPP is aligned with its pre-existing global public health commitments.  Medicines should not be a luxury. Sincerely, GRAN Quinte, Belleville Ontario

and should be encouraged to ask more questions and make sure this project makes sense and if it does proceed, that it is the best deal possible. The time to negotiate with Northland is now before they get approval. They need our support. They are not our friends. They are a for-profit company that will not voluntarily spend more than they need to after the fact. Is it true that the proposal in Marmora is to use the same technology as the original site failure in the 2005 disaster in Missouri? What kind of capital, insurance or other funding is in place in the event of a disaster? What are the proposed/ projected decibel levels of generation noise? What kind of remedies are in place for residents if their wells dry up? What arrangements are in place for the ultimate decommission costs? Just wondering??? Ron Trace, Marmora 7,&2

Dear Editor, RE: Trans Pacific Partnership/ Public Health and Access to Medicine We are members of GRAN Quinte (Grandmothers Advocacy Network) and as such are concerned about the provisions being proposed in the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPP)  that threaten to restrict access to affordable medicines by millions of people including Canadians.  This agreement would make it difficult for patients, governments and treatment providers to access affordable generic  medicines  in Canada and developing countries owing to the provisions for patent extensions.  All but the very wealthy will be affected negatively by this agreement.  Too many people already suffer and die

nance etc., but do we need a permanent standby supply? Clearly Northland Power will not spend hundreds of millions of dollars on this project without a commitment from the province to regularly buy this power. Great, can you envision us paying daily for power we don’t use and keeping it in storage? I can. So why would the province currently consider this project? A cynic might see this project as camouflaged stimulus spending. The government in power doesn’t have to show the investment spending in their budget, and for years they reap the political economic benefits of jobs etc. from Northland’s spending. Then why are they hesitating? Could it be that no one wants to be the government in power when we have to pay back Northland’s investment plus their profit through our hydro bills? Reeve Clemens is quoted as saying “… this project is still in the process.” Well then, I think we should not all blindly follow


Dear Editor, At the public meeting regarding the Murray Canal Single Lane Swing Bridge replacement held April 23 at Quinte West Council chambers, our MP and Parks Canada officials stated that the present bridge does not meet current safety standards. They must have two sets of rules. One for us and another for themselves. After taking a cursory look at the condition of the roadway and security fencing, I question Parks Canada’s commitment to safety. I only covered about two kilometres but found rotten and broken guard posts, wire rope cable that is supposed to prevent the many four-wheel drive trucks using the road from entering the canal lying useless in the grass, open stream drains with no protective timbers above, potholes large enough to swallow a small car and muddy and slippery road surfaces. This is part of the highly promoted “Waterfront Trail.” Those responsible for saddling Quinte West, Prince Edward County and Brighton with this unsafe, trashinfested eyesore should be hanging their heads in shame. Roger McMurray, Brighton

ed some ongoing public input and discussion before papering the town with “Pumped Storage Why Wait?” signs. Well three years later and it’s still not approved. Makes one wonder why? Although some aspects may look good, is it possible the project is not really in the public’s best interest? Obviously our council would like to see the local tax assessments that would arise, but at what cost ultimately, to all provincial residents Hydro bills?


Dear Editor, In a recent local newspaper article, which interviewed Marmora & Lake Reeve Terry Clemens, it was conveyed that two local residents who are against the Pumped Storage Project were singled out by him in his letter to the Ontario Minister of Energy. The article labelled them as “activists.” This looks a lot like—if you can’t discredit their arguments then discredit the people. I don’t know the individuals personally, but I

OPINION Connected to your community Israel: The “A” word

Editorial - Hillary Clinton would never have used the word when she was US Secretary of State, because she still has presidential ambitions. John Kerry, the current Secretary of State, has no further ambitions in that direction, which may be why he dared to use the words “apartheid” and “Israel” in the same sentence. Or maybe he just didn’t realise that the world hear about it. Gwynne Dyer would Kerry spoke last week to a group of high-ranking officials from the US, Europe and Japan known as the Trilateral Commission about the failure of his year-long attempt to revive the “peace talks” between Israel and the Palestinians. Somebody at the meeting secretly recorded his comments, which were published by the Daily Beast on Monday, and suddenly he was in very hot water. What he said was that the long-sought “two-state solution” was the only real alternative to a “unitary” Israeliruled state that included all the territory between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea – and ruled over millions of Palestinians in the territories that have been under Israeli military occupation since 1967. Those Palestinians, most of whom cannot remember a time when they did not live under Israeli control, have no political rights within Israel. The two-state solution, under negotiation off and on for the past 20 years, would give them a state of their own, but most people had despaired some time ago of getting Israel to agree to an independent Palestine. Kerry had not, so he was surprised and disappointed when his efforts came to naught. That was why he blurted out the truth that American politicians are never supposed to acknowledge. He said that without the two-state solution, “a unitary [Israeli] state winds up either being an apartheid state with second-class [Palestinian] citizens – or it ends up being a state that destroys the capacity of Israel to be a Jewish state.” It was clumsily phrased, but the basic idea is common in both Israeli and Palestinian political discourse. Even if

Israel never formally annexes the occupied territories, it has been building Jewish settlements all over them for decades, and the Palestinian inhabitants are effectively controlled by the Israeli government. If this situation continues indefinitely, and the Palestinians must live out their lives as mere residents without no political rights, then they are in the same position as the black South Africans who lived all their lives under white rule without citizenship or the vote. That was the very essence of apartheid. Alternatively, of course, Israel might grant them citizenship and the vote: that’s what happened when apartheid ended in South Africa in 1994. But there are already a great many Palestinians living under Israeli rule, and their higher birth rate would make them a majority in that “unitary” Israel in less than a generation. That might or might not be a state where Jews were happy to live, but it would definitely no longer be a Jewish state. State Department officials tried to defend their boss’s comments for a few hours, but as the firestorm of protest by American Zionist organisations grew the Obama administration realised that Kerry had to be forced to apologise for speaking the truth. The story that they took him down into the White House basement and beat him with rubber hoses is probably untrue, but on Tuesday he recanted his heresy. “I do not believe,” Kerry said, “nor have I ever stated, publicly or privately, that Israel is an apartheid state or that it intends to become one.” Well, of course not. It’s not an apartheid state now because the non-citizen status of the Palestinians for the past 47 years is technically only temporary, pending the creation of their own state. And Israel has no intention of ever meeting the technical definition of an apartheid state, either, because that would be a public-relations disaster. However, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu seems convinced that he can avoid that outcome simply by hanging on to the occupied territories indefinitely but never formally annexing them, and many Israelis agree with him. They might even be right, but John Kerry doesn’t think so. Or at least, he didn’t until his own people worked him over a bit.


Fed up with Hydro One Dear Editor We have been living here in Trenton since 2011. When we moved to this beautiful town, the first thing Hydro One did was to change the “old smart meter” with a new “smart meter”, even though it was only three days old. Go figure... Anyway, in September of 2012 I noticed on our hydro bill that it was only estimations, and called the hydro company to inquire as to why it was only estimation and not the right number of consumption. The answer I got was: there is a problem with the smart meter but it will be corrected in about two to three months, and we will adjust your billing accordingly. I called the Hydro One at least every second month to see what took them so long to correct the problem, and again was told it could take about two to three months to correct. Today, May 2, I received my hydro bill as per usual date and almost had a heart attack, as the bill showed an amount of $1,454.42... and this amount is an adjustment from June 2012 to April of 2014 I have just ended a conversation with Mohammed in billing at Hydro One, and was told the reason for this high

amount on my bill is due to the fact that they have only been estimating our consumption, but now the “smart meter” is working as it should and from now on, it will be the actual consumption. Now I have a question. We are being charged something called regulatory charges and we are being charged debt retirement charges. I do not understand why we are taxed on regulatory charges and on debt retirement charges, as that is not a service, but basically a fine we are paying because somebody literally screwed up. On top of this, the delivery charge is three times as much as consumption? And why when Hydro is so expensive, are we paying for another country to take our surplus Hydro? It does not make sense. I would be like the supermarket paying us for taking their groceries. As you can most likely read between the lines, I am stewing and I am not sure that you are the person to write to but I had to let somebody in politics know about this. We are retired and are on a fixed income, and fed up and this is just going to be more and more difficult to bear. Sincerely, Kirsten Skjodt, Trenton

Heee’s baaaack... By Terry Bush Editorial - Considering where we live, we really don’t need to have curtains on our windows. The city, it’s not. Secluded, it is. Mare and I are well past our prime, well at least one of us is, so in the event that someone is outside peeking in while I’m putting on my gotchies, I’d say the resulting retching is well-deserved. And in Mare’s case, the offending peeping Tom had better have a flannel fetish, because he’s going to see the same thing I do on a nightly basis often encased in a double set of housecoats. The girl is not well-insulated. So why are we finally thinking about curtains five years into owning this house? Let the broken record spin. It wasn’t a nice winter. It was a good winter for anything to do with snow and it reminded me of the great winters we used to experience when we were kids but two words pretty much sum it up for us. Electric furnace. In a perfect world, the previous owners would have installed infloor heating given the preponderance of tile in the place. But their main usage for our current home was as a getaway. You could tell that by the fireplace that sent all the heat up the chimney. Not to brag but I think we did our part to pay the salary of at least one Hydro employee this winter with a bit of overtime thrown in. The most remarkable bill we received was for the month of March when we were on the other side of the world for three weeks. With the furnace set around 12 degrees, we still managed to top the $1,000 mark for the month. After the rage subsided, it was time to figure out what to do about the situation. Isn’t the Internet grand? Within half an hour of surfing, I’d found out that my plan to install in-floor heating between the floor joists would probably not be an attractive option unless I had an extra $20,000 kicking around. I don’t. So we are forced to consider cheaper alternatives to whittle away at our ever-increasing heating bill. I remember a time when an attic was used as a place to store things, lots of things; cool things especially if you were a kid rummaging around. Often it even contained items that had been left behind by a previous owner. Now it’s a place to store insulation. So, we’ll be storing another six inches of pink there this fall to go with the eight inches of bats and blown that already reside

there. So much space, so little storage. And then shudder, shudder, we’ll buy insulated curtains and cocoon ourselves for six months. Hopefully after spending much less than we would have upgrading our heating system, we might be able to drop our Hydro bill down into the $800 per month range other people said they paid last winter for various heat sources. It might even make it more fun for any Toms who’d like to take a peek, because as we all know, a little bit of hard work always makes the rewards that much sweeter. My other option as far as reducing my Hydro bill would be to entice people to move to our neighbourhood which might eventually result in a change in our Hydro One designation as rural low density. But then we’d have to move because our little piece of heaven would be too populated. Curtains and insulation will have to do this time round. We may even get the new window coverings sooner than later. Apparently we’ve become way too countrified in a farmer kind of way. Either that or our eyelids are thinning in our middle age like the skin on the back of our hands. Five a.m. rolls around these days and for some reason, the eyelids roll up like cartoon window blinds. Gone are the days when sleeping in was not only a pleasure but, at times, a necessity. But none of the aforementioned reasons are really why curtains could soon be adorning the multitude of windows in our rural home. An ungrateful avian, who dined on our dime all winter, has returned with a vengeance. That darned little sparrow that spent his days pecking at the kitchen and bedroom windows last summer has returned and taken his game up a notch. Must be the playoff atmosphere we have in Canada right now. With no nest to be found in any of the shrubbery, he’s upped the ante and is currently pecking away at four or five windows despite my best efforts to shoo him away. We’ve placed bird decals on the windows and he seems to be under the impression that he’s the leader of the flock. I swear he’s giving me the feather during his constant attacks and I just can’t take it anymore. It’s time to draw the curtain on his antics once and for all. And if the curtains don’t work, I have an owl waiting in the wings. Victory will be mine.

Candidates ready for provincial election

News - Belleville - Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s party time. Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne announced last Friday that she received approval from the LieutenantGovernor to dissolve the provincial legislature and hold an election on Thursday, June 12. The move came after the Progressive Conservatives and the New Democratic Party refused to support the provincial budget, presented by Wynneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Liberals. And with that news, members of political parties in the Prince Edward-Hastings riding began preparing for the first provincial election since 2011. The current Member of Provincial Parliament Todd Smith, a Progressive Conservative backbencher, announced his intentions to run. The former local radio broadcaster entered politics for the first time in 2011, when he defeated long-time Liberal MPP Leona Dombrowsky in a tight race. Smith said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ready for the re-election campaign and his partyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goal is to, not only overthrow the Liberals, but form a majority government. The PCs plan to do that with a campaign based on job creation and alerting Ontarians to concerns about rising electricity rates. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After ten years of the Liberals, the province is in a much deeper financial hole than we were in before,â&#x20AC;? Smith said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in real trouble in the economy and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re seeing hundreds

of thousands of jobs leave Ontario.â&#x20AC;? Smith said the Progressive Conservatives are proposing an act called the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Million Jobs Act.â&#x20AC;? It will speak to the need to lower electricity rates, on the grounds that the current rate is forcing manufacturers to decline doing business in Ontario. On a personal note, Smith said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s looking forward to a chance at second term, considering this term was his first ever in politics. But as former member of the news media, he said he was well aware of local issues and the role an MPP plays. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve really enjoyed it,â&#x20AC;? he said, although admitting, â&#x20AC;&#x153;it has been overwhelming at times.â&#x20AC;? Meanwhile, the Liberal Party will put a familiar name on the ballot in Prince Edward-Hastings, in hopes of helping Wynne regain power after assuming the premierâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s role following the resignation of Dalton McGuinty. Georgina Thompson will represent the Liberals. She is no stranger to politics, having formerly served on municipal councils in Thurlow (before it amalgamated with Belleville) and Belleville. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also widely known in health care circles as she is a nursing supervisor at Hastings Manor LongTerm Care, a past chair of the South East Local Health Integration Network and a former President of AllCare Health Services. Thompson said sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

running to support Wynne and her budget. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think Kathleen Wynne is the best choice for the leader of this province. We want the province in good hands and she put forward a good budget,â&#x20AC;? Thompson said, stressing the budget supports health care, social housing and other programs aimed at stimulating the economy. The NDP did not have a candidate officially nominated to represent the riding on Monday, but is expected to announce

Merrill Stewart as its candidate in the coming days. The ridingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s campaign manager Andy Hanson said Stewart was out of the country at the time the election was called, but upon his return he will go through the formal nomination process. The party has already been campaigning locally by canvassing door-to-door encouraging residents to vote NDP, Hanson said. He and fellow members are confident the momentum the NDP has at the federal level,

News - Belleville - If you’re a women in business and you would like an opportunity to socialize and build relationships that can help you grow a career, then you may want to join The Power of WE. The new and locally run group is an offspring of the Power of Women Exchange, an organization for women entrepreneurs, which had a Belleville-area chapter several years ago. That organization dissolved in 2011, but in the years since Lorraine Harvey, a Brighton-based businesswoman, has worked to grow a new and similar organization called the Power of WE (Women Entrepreneurs). It’s now grown to a point where it has 26 regular members, who attend monthly lunch meetings at the Amica at Quinte Gardens, at 30 College Street West, on the fourth Tuesday of every month (except July). It also recently launched a monthly “mix and mingle” program, which takes place on the first Tuesday of every month, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Belleville Club, at Bridge and Pinnacle streets downtown. These events and other Power of WE meetings are all about helping women network and build new friendships that can help advance their careers. Harvey stressed that a woman does not have to be an entrepreneur to participate. The group represents all kinds of professionals, from those with home-based businesses, to real estate agents, to financial planners and others in unique careers. “It’s for anyone, it doesn’t matter if you’re in business or not, just come and meet people,” Harvey said, noting that it’s perfectly okay to talk about your children, your family or other non-business related

topics at the mix and mingle. She said network groups, such as The Power of WE, are important for women because women are more inclined to do business with other women they trust. “Women build business through relationships,” she said. “There’s a trust factor that has to be there. Once you get to know someone and you trust someone, you have no problem referring them to friends.” She also said the group serves an important purpose for young mothers, who need support to grow their businesses and, in some cases, need adult companionship after spending a lot of days at home. “We don’t grow your business for you, but we’ll certainly give you the encouragement and support,” she said. One interesting thing about the Power of WE is that it’s an original group that runs solely out of the Quinte region. While the Power of Women Exchange had local chapters, there is only one Power of WE. It hosts events only in the local area, but women from anywhere are invited to join. Harvey stressed that some participants come from areas such as Cobourg and Durham to attend events. She hopes the organization will grow and said the mix and mingle event, which debuted recently, is receiving positive feedback. “The energy in the room is what brings people back,” she said. “It’s wonderful, it’s a great group of women.” A yearly membership fee to join the Power of WE costs $60.

Manley will be inducted into the Canadian Sports Hall of Fame in October 2014. Manley was speaking at Albert

College, as part of the annual Lorne L.

Veterans soldier on to support wounded troops Continued from page 3

And while the challenges soldiers face upon returning from war are significant, Whelan noted that the bravery they show—even after returning from war—is commendable. “I feel a great deal of humility. I feel pride,” he said, after watching the troops leave Market Square. The lead officer of the Soldier On mission addressed spectators about his own injuries in Afghanistan and his road to recovery. Jay Feyko said he lost sight in one eye and was treated for shrapnel wounds after a suicide bomber detonated himself in Afghanistan in January 2004. The incident killed one of his fellow troops, Corporal Jamie Murphy. He described his recovery as trying to “find a way down an uncharted trail in the dark.” But he said, knowing that he had support from his family and military supporters, helped a great deal. “We quickly learn that we don’t have to take this journey alone,” he said. Although Soldier On represents an opportunity to raise funds and awareness, it’s also providing veterans with a chance to thank Canadians for the support they’ve shown to troops; a point emphasised by both Feyko and Whelan. “I am truly blessed to be able to stand here today,” Feyko said. “This would not be possible without the support of Canadians.” In his opening address Whelan said, “The Soldier On message is one of thanks on behalf of the Armed Forces for your incredible support.” Marc-Caroll Dupuis, a representative from CFMWS at the event, said his organization supports about 3,500 military veterans with injuries, both visible and non-visible.

Get ready for Relay for Life with events planned this weekend By Stephen Petrick

News - Belleville - The Canadian Cancer Society is getting ready for Relay for Life events across Canada later this spring and a couple of events in the local region this weekend will help get people in the mood for the wildly popular fund raiser. The Crystal Palace in Picton will host what’s being dubbed as “The Mother of All Vendor Sales,” an event in which 53 vendors will sell products, with proceeds going to one Relay for Life team’s fund-raising efforts. The event runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., on Saturday, May 10, at the Palace, at 375 Main Street. Angela Henry, a Belleville woman, is organizing the event with fellow members of her relay team, Rebels for a Cause. The funds raised from the show will go toward her team’s fund-raising contributions, when it competes in the Picton Relay for Life on June 6. She said the show will feature a range of vendors from those selling candles and jewellery to purses and clothes. “If you can think of it we’ll have it,” she said. Henry said she’s also selling pink hair extensions for donations and a photographer will be on hand to offer Mother’s Day shoots for families. The event is meant to coincide with Mother’s Day, taking place the next day. There’s no admission to enter the event. For

more information call Henry at 613-885-5443. Another event planned this weekend, is meant to draw attention to the Belleville relay taking place Friday, June 20, at Loyalist College. Organizers for the Relay are holding a “Media Launch” event, Saturday, May 10, at the Avaya parking lot, off Sidney Street. The event is expected to include a media jousting match to fit the event’s “Story Book Land” theme. The theme was chosen because organizers hope to re-write cancer’s story this year because, as its promotional poster says, “everyone deserves a happy ending.” The Relay for Life is a flagship event for the Canadian Cancer Society, as it raises millions of dollars every year in communities across Canada. The Relays see teams of people affected by cancer take turns walking overnight around a track, lit up by luminaries placed in honour of people who’ve either survived or died of cancer. The funds raised, through pledges, luminary purchases and other means, supports cancer research, services and supports for people living with the disease and education and prevention programs.

C of C learns of Belleville’s industrial treasures By Jack Evans

News - Belleville - They may not be paying General Motors or Hewlett Packard wages, but when it comes to industrial jobs and manufacturing facilities, Belleville and the Quinte area has done exceptionally well in recent years. How well? A breakfast meeting of the Belleville and District Chamber of Commerce Wednesday in the Travelodge Hotel learned that this area is now the “largest concentration of manufacturing facilities in eastern Ontario.” That includes Kingston, Ottawa and any Chris King and Karen Poste were joint presenters on the topic of manufac- other city between Toronto and turing in the Quinte area at the Chamber of Commerce breakfast Wednes- the Quebec border. The meeting day in the Travelodge Hotel. Photo: Jack Evans was a joint presentation by Chris

King of the Quinte Economic Development Commission and Karen Poste, Belleville’s manager for economic and strategic initiatives. King talked about the value of attracting and hanging on to new industries as “new economic wealth” in the community as opposed to circulating existing wealth, such as going to a restaurant. New dollars from industry has a multiplying factor in the local economy of “3.25” he said. With an aging population, he predicted the area will need “1,000 new workers” over the next few years, just from retirements, not counting new industries expected to come on stream. He reviewed his agency’s stra-

tegic marketing to sectors such as food processing, packaging, aerospace and plastics. He also reported on efforts to promote increased sales of “made local” products and industries helping to supply each other’s production needs. Poste reviewed a list of 38 manufacturing plants just in Belleville alone, some established for many years, and some having opened in recent months. They represent a wide range of products: parachutes, foods, sports equipment, auto parts, carpet floor tiles, plastic packaging films, medical products, monuments, specialized metals, fire safety systems, chemicals, protective clothing, dairy products and more.

Employment levels varied between a dozen or so up to more than 1,000 in the case of the Autosystems Manufacturing. She described the wide range of industrial activities as Belleville’s “saving grace,” in that often if one sector is having problems on local or international markets, other sectors fill in the gap. “Our manufacturing community is diversified and stable,” she said. She noted that at the recent job fair, which is held twice a year, almost 45 exhibitors were recruiting and about 1,000 potential workers attended. The next job fair will be in October under a schedule of trying to hold one twice a year, said Poste.

Councils combat critics of Marmora pumped storage By Jack Evans

News – Marmora – Critics of the long-discussed Marmora Pumped Storage project in the former Bethlehem Steel quarry may be few, but apparently they remain a thorn in the side of municipal officials. Despite naysayers though, the massive project remains in process, Marmora and Lake Reeve Terry Clemens said in an interview at a meeting of Hastings County Council Thursday. “I can’t say there is major new information, but this project is still in the process,” he said.

Both Clemens and Warden Rick Phillips shared support of it in a letter to provincial officials which was included in Thursday’s county agenda. Addressed specifically to Energy Minister Robert Chiarelli, the letter assured him that “support for the Marmora Pumped Storage Hydro Project remains as strong as ever.” The letter singles out local activists Kathy Hamilton and Tom Adams for “writing opinion pieces in the Financial Post in attempts to embarrass any politician that conveys support for the project. They

now been included in the new Long Term Energy Plan. The letter also notes that the Tourism Study, for which the Ontario government designated substantial funding, will be completed “within the next couple of months and we are confident that it will confirm that the facility will provide a significant economic boost for Eastern Ontario. This is a unique opportunity to make a big difference for Eastern Ontario.” Copies of the letter went to Premier Kathleen Wynne, several cabinet ministers and area MPPs and all party leaders. The massive project is expected to employ up to 1,000 construction jobs for several years to create a network of submerged pumps that will force water up to a storage area during off-peak hours then generate

also choose to have their opinions published even after positive news is issued about the project, such as the Tourism Study.” Despite the much-publicized objections by the two activists, the letter affirms they “do not in any way represent the views of the vast majority of people from the community, the county and Eastern Ontario. In fact,” the letter continues, “the most common questions from our constituents are: ‘When is this project going to finally get started?’ and ‘Why is something that makes good sense and is supported by all three political parties taking so long PRICES EFFECTIVE to go ahead?’” Reeve Clemens Friday May 9 further noted that Thursday May 15 the project has

School to host open house Saturday

News - Corbyville - Those with fond memories of Harmony Public School would be wise to attend an open house the school is hosting this Saturday. Anyone who misses it may not get a chance to enter again. The school, located in Belleville’s rural north end, is opening its doors to the public from 1 to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 10. This event is to celebrate the friendships and memories made at the school during its lifespan from 1960 to 2014, and also the oneroom school house that led to the school’s existence. Harmony Public School, located at 626 Harmony Road, is scheduled to be demolished following the end of this school year, as construction of a new version of the school, located at the same site, is expected to be completed by September. Memorabilia and photos will be on display in classrooms, during the open house. People who would like to loan items for the open house are invited to call the school at 613-962-7867. All items will be returned, school officials say. Guests at the event can also preorder a light meal for $6, which will include beef-on-a-bun, a hot dog or salad with a drink and dessert.

Paul Carr announces candidacy for Thurlow Ward councilor

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Belleville - Former Councillor Paul Carr has filed his nomination papers to run for one of two Thurlow Ward seats. Carr, 40, represented Thurlow Ward as a councillor with the City of Belleville 11 years ago. Infrastructure and level of service in Thurlow Ward has been neglected for far too long

despite the increased growth and taxpayers should be seeing a return on their tax dollars. He intends on having a resultoriented agenda; one that meets the expectations of taxpayers and includes measurable results that foster increased employment, fiscal prudence, sound stewardship as well as increased operational efficiencies.

Carr stated that, â&#x20AC;&#x153;It would be a great privilege to represent the residents of Thurlow Ward once again,â&#x20AC;? noting that as an experienced candidate, he can hit the ground running, but also bring a new perspective. He is looking forward to engaging with Thurlow residents throughout the campaign and added that, â&#x20AC;&#x153;On-going

consultation with taxpayers is imperative; councillors need to know the people they represent and what their priorities are.â&#x20AC;? Carr and his wife have two daughters. He is a 17-year veteran with the Correctional Service of Canada. Paul Carr is running for council in Bellevilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Thurlow Ward. Photo: Submitted

This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s event takes place from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Park Ballroom at the Travelodge Hotel, 11 Bay Bridge Road, Belleville. Tickets are $35, which includes a four-course lunch. For tickets call 613-9621232 or visit the QAC office at 36 Bridge Street East in downtown Belleville. QAC artist and member services officer Carol Bauer said that, over the last 20 years, government grants for artists have dried up and several similar arts councils across the nation have had to close. But, â&#x20AC;&#x153;the fact that this one is still going shows that the community supports it,â&#x20AC;? she said. On a personal level, she said she has been impressed with how well the arts community has grown from the time she first moved to the region more than 20 years ago. The growth of theatre companies in Belleville, Stirling and Picton over the last two decades is a perfect example. While the arts council canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take sole credit for that growth, it does encourage these types of groups and works to promote art in the region. It helps spread the word about local artists and events and co-ordinates

workshops and education programs to nurture the regionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s creative talent, Bauer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We try to keep the arts in peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s minds,â&#x20AC;? she said, explaining that a strong arts council can drive tourism and economic growth. The QAC is a non-profit group and its funds come from membership fees, private donations and some public funds, Bauer said, explaining that the City of Belleville supports it. Although the recognition awards ceremony is still a week away, this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recipients have already been announced: writer and historian Gerald Boyce; theatre director Elizabeth Marshall; musician Richard Penner; artisans Connie Yrjola, Barb Forgie and Cara Hunter of We Create Artisan Events; and sound technicians Paul Johnson and Rob Kellough of Through The Cedars Music Production. The fact that this list represents a diverse number of medias is fitting, Bauer said, considering the vast amount of talent in the region. She said the QAC represents artists east to Kingston, west to Port Hope and north to Bancroft. And every year, it seems, new creative people tend to move into this region. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s become more known as an area that nurtures the arts,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You can see the difference in [Prince Edward County] but also north of us, too. A lot of people are moving here. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re people who have retired and have more time to pursue their artistic ambitions. When thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s artists moving into the community you get a richer kind of culture.â&#x20AC;?

Here is more information on this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nominations. Gerald Boyce was nominated for his tenacious support and promotion of local history. His own books, such as Belleville, a Popular History (2008) have helped preserve the historical record of this city while Historic Hastings (1967) is the definitive history of the region. At age 80, he continues to serve as an active heritage advisor to the Hastings County Historical Society.â&#x20AC;? Elizabeth (Liz) Marshall has been a strong pillar of the Belleville Theatre Guild for more than four decades. Her involvement has covered almost every facet of the life of the Guild. She has served on the boards of directors, and play-reading committees planning the productions for each season. She has also served in many capacities behind the scenes, running the gamut as pro-

ducer, designer, and actor. In 1991 she won the Ottawa Little Theatre Trophy as Best Director for The Death of a Salesman, the Theatre Guildâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s entry in that yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Eastern Ontario Drama League Spring Play Festival. In addition to her full-time career as a teacher, (now retired), Liz has devoted 42 years of her life to the Belleville Theatre Guild, helping to bring outstanding community theatre at its finest to countless audiences in those decades.â&#x20AC;? Richard (Rick) Pennerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s love of music, both secular and religious, has moved him to volunteer his time and talent wherev-

er he has lived. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s played for a number of Belleville Theatre Guild productions. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s played organ and directed the choir at St. Matthewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s United Church in Belleville and at St. John the Baptist Anglican Church in Madoc. A group award will go to Connie Yrjola, Barb Forgie and Cara Hunter of We Create Artisan Events. All three ladies are tireless contributors to our arts community through their many artistic projects. Between them, they have produced countless artisan shows. This year will mark the fifth annual Mother of All Craft Shows, the third an-

nual Kaleidoscope, a celebration of craft and design and the fifth annual Mistletoe Magic Artisan Show. Paul Johnson and Rob Kellough will receive an award for their business, Through the Cedars Music Production. They are deeply entrenched in the artistic fabric of their community and do their job without question or complaint. Quite often, event technicians are the first to arrive and last to leave and long days can be the norm. Both Paul and Rob exemplify a professional standard from which â&#x20AC;&#x153;big cityâ&#x20AC;? technicians could learn.

Battle of the Atlantic remembered in Fraser Park Photos Kate Everson

By Kate Everson

News - Trenton - The sombre ringing of the bell in Fraser Park on Sunday, May 4, represented each of the Canadian vessels lost in the Battle of the Atlantic in World War II. “We have been having this ceremony for many years, probably from the beginning in 1946,” said Master of Ceremonies Lieutenant (N) Brigitte Quesnel. Leading Seaman Ben Bell from RCSCC Napanee sounded the bell to represent the navy warships including six destroyers, 12 corvettes, four minesweepers and three patrol vessels and armed auxiliaries. Seven torpedo boats were also lost in the English Channel mostly at D Day in 1944. Their territories stretched from Halifax and the Gulf of St. Lawrence to the Coast of Iceland, the North Atlantic and the English Channel as well as the Spanish coast. The service included the laying of wreaths in the water off the dock by Legionnaire Doug Fairman, assisted by Lieutenant (N) Shawn Fairbrother of RCSCC Trent, RAF/ RCAF Coastal Command Legionnaire Evert MacLean with Captain Garret Watts of 704 Royal Canadian Air Cadets, and Merchant Marine Legionnaire Bob Gilmore accompanied by Midshipman Adele Plumb of NLCC Trentonian. They were accompanied by Mayor John Williams for the March Past. The address and scripture were given by Captain Reverend Flor Gerson. Lines of commemoration were read by Legion Branch 110 Ted Roberts. CPO1 Hunter Hannah from RCSCC Trenton read the Naval Prayer. “Preserve us from the dangers of the sea, and from the violence of the enemy,” the prayer reads. The colours were paraded by Royal Canadian Legion Branch 110. The Quinte Living Centre Band played in the Ted Snider Bandshell. Bugler was Captain Kelly Dixon and piper Sergeant Grier. Parade Marshal was Tommy Thomas and Colour Party Command Buck McCarty. On September 3, 1939, the Athenia was sunk off the costs of Northern Ireland. One week later, Canada was officially at war. From that day, until the last of the German U-board surrendered on VE Day in May, 1945, the Allied Navies and Air Forces could not relax a moment in their vigilance. Battle of the Atlantic Sunday commemorates the sacrifices of sailors, merchant seamen, RCAF and Canadian Army personnel who gave their lives in the North Atlantic. The Royal Canadian

Piper Sergeant Grier performed in remembrance of the Battle of the Atlantic.

Navy gave to the struggle over 2,000 dead and 24 warships. More than 900 RCAF and Army personnel were lost as well. The elements were often as vicious as the foe, with the raging storms, pack ice, bitter cold, fog and the dense blackness of the north Atlantic nights. The Royal Canadian Navy and the Merchant Navy made nearly 26,000 safe crossings, carrying over 181 million tons of supplies to Great Britain. After the ceremony in the cold May wind the group was glad to relax at the Legion with a lunch provided by the Ladies Auxiliary.

News - Quinte West - The board of directors of Quinte Economic Development Commission is excited about whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happening in the Quinte region. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are following 58 leads and 36 opportunities, presenting about 1,000 jobs,â&#x20AC;? reported Vicki Bristow Ferguson, business development officer, at the April 29 meeting. Executive director Chris King said they need to promote what is made in the Bay of Quinte region. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to ramp this up,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Show our pride.â&#x20AC;? A promotional campaign, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Proudly made in Bay of Quinte regionâ&#x20AC;? is providing local product sample thank-you boxes to clients. Mike Hewitt, Manufacturing Resource Centre, has been busy meeting with manufacturers to promote apprenticeship programs through Loyalist College. Mayor John Williams asked why the unemployment rate statistics are up this year in the Quinte area. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The numbers have jumped huge,â&#x20AC;? he said. Chris King said the statistics are based on phone calls to 1,000 households and the survey may be flawed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;How could we lose 5,000 jobs?â&#x20AC;? he asked. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t figure out where the numbers come from.â&#x20AC;? He noted that no more people are collecting EI benefits. Linda Lisle, economic director for Quinte West, said they had 44 employers at the recent fair with over 1,000 job

seekers. Karen Poste from Belleville added, â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are more jobs than ever before.â&#x20AC;? Elisha Purchase from Brighton said they are working on bringing business and tourism to their municipality. The industrial park is set to open in June. Mayor Mark Walas commented that Elisha was â&#x20AC;&#x153;a breath of fresh air for Brighton.â&#x20AC;? Linda Lisle said Quinte West is working on leads from the recent Explore the Core event and also on 80 surveys completed in the downtown with results to be reviewed by May 20. Karen Poste said there are lots of building permits in Belleville including major renovations, with a real healthy mix of commercial and residential. She noted that a Sears job fair at the end of March attracted 19 employers looking

to hire former Sears employees who had lost their jobs. Ann Drennan, dean of Loyalist College, said the open houses have been well attended with more students than ever confirmed in welding courses. Student links with industry are increasing including students in GlobalMed and several construction students building a cabin for Ontario Parks. Chuck Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Malley said they are increasing their digital outreach and upgrading skills here so workers do not have to go abroad. Glenn Kozak of Trenval said they gave out 33 loans last year worth $2.5 million, the busiest in their 22-year history. The cash reserves are down and Chris King, chief executive officer of the QEDC at the board meeting. they may have to borrow more money. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good problem to have,â&#x20AC;? he said. Cogeco for ten half-hour episodes highlighting businesses Kozak said Trenval is working with that have been helped by Trenval in Trenton and Belleville areas. The series is on Wednesdays and again on Saturday and Sunday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is drama in its highest form,â&#x20AC;? he said. Kozak added that they are working on the Natural History Museum in Phase 2 now with architect drawings and cost estimates completed. A promotional video will highlight the museum through social media like YouTube and Google. They have filed for corporation status as Trenval turns the project over to the larger community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a regional initiative,â&#x20AC;? he said. He noted that Chris King, Suzanne Andrews and Glenn Kozak are the three founding members and are looking for more people to commit to the project. Dan Borowec, director economic development and tourism for Northumberland County, said the new agribusiness centre just east of the Big Apple is a niche processing plant as a second source of farm income. The $2-million investment is also a partnership with food programs in Loyalist and Durham colleges. The board of directors meets in the boardroom at the Quinte Business Development Centre. The program is ready to start this fall.

Councillor Terry Cassidy runs for mayor important and should be expanded to include services to Loyalist, doctorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; appointments, north and south, inside the city and outside the urban core. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to look at people who are disadvantaged,â&#x20AC;? he added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are struggling with services, including transit.â&#x20AC;? Cassidy said they need to

Belleville Minor Football Association kicks off season

Olympic bobsleigh member talks team spirit

By Stephen Petrick

Sports â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Belleville â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The sound of quarterbacks screaming â&#x20AC;&#x153;down, set, hut,â&#x20AC;? can now be heard at a number of parks in the region. The 2014 Belleville Minor Football Season kicked off on Thursday, May 1. Eight teams, representing elementary-school aged children, from the communities of Belleville, Quinte West, Bancroft, Central Hastings and Trent Hills, are taking to the gridiron this year. Games will be played at Mary Anne Sills Park in Belleville, Trenton High School, St. Paulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s school in Trenton and Campbellford District High School.

News - Quinte West - Cody Sorensen, spoke about his personal journey at a luncheon at the Ramada on April 30 sponsored by RBC and the Quinte West Chamber of Commerce Sorensen was a member of the Canada One crew for the past three seasons, but had a disappointing ďŹ nish in Sochi after suffering a spectacular crash on one of their runs. Luckily nobody was hurt but it was a devastating blow to the team who had ďŹ ve world cup medals to their name and were contenders for the Olympic gold. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Two days before the race the teams got switched,â&#x20AC;? Sorensen said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Chris, the pilot, wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t performing well and they put in a new one, Kripps.â&#x20AC;? He said they had been working with the original member for over a year and it was unsettling to the rest of the team. They were going 135 kilometres an hour when the bobsleigh hit the wall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was depressed for a day,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But I saw the positives. I love the journey along the way, the highs and lows. The competition itself is the reward.â&#x20AC;? He noted that in the Ottawa paper the spectacular crash was listed as one of the highs of the Sochi Olympics. Duncan Armstrong asked why the switch was made and if it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a contradiction of what a team is. He asked if there was any discussion with the team. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Maybe for a couple of minutes,â&#x20AC;? Sorensen answered. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But we also recognized how a sport operates. It was tough. Chris was our buddy. But the coaches told us we had to live up to our best. We would have loved to push Chris, but this was an opportunity to show our stuff. Chris will always be a part of that.â&#x20AC;? Jacques Pilon asked if the sled was on track before the crash. Sorensen said it was in eighth place which after two more runs would have put them in third or fourth. Someone asked if this was the ďŹ rst time he had crashed. Sorensen said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;No, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve crashed eight or nine times. This was a rough one. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s part of the sport.â&#x20AC;? Suzanne Andrews asked about the way the crowd went crazy when the Canadian team entered the stadium.

Sorensen said there is a lot of respect for Canada, including in the Olympic Village. Andrews said the Canadian maple leaf brand is well recognized all over the world. Sorensen told the group that his father was his biggest source of inspiration. He was a wrestler in the 1972 Olympics and did not pressure him into sports but let him make his own choices. Sorensen described what it was like to try out for the bobsleigh team and how exciting it was to work with the team. He said the sled itself had no suspension, just a rigid frame. It went up to 145 kilometres an hour and the team was subjected to just under 6G pressure. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get your neck wrecked trying to ďŹ ght the G force,â&#x20AC;? he said. Sorensen described the synergy on the team and how they all became buddies. They were friends and backed each other up. He said passion for the sport was the biggest thing but camaraderie was right up there. He also talked about dealing with stress in any event, how stress can spur you on, as long as it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t turn into anxiety. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You learn to keep your stress levels in check,â&#x20AC;? he said. Sorensen shared his personal journey on setting goals, coaching, leadership and how he overcame obstacles to become an Olympian. â&#x20AC;&#x153;His message is one that will especially resonate with the business community, â&#x20AC;? Suzanne Andrews said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was very inspiring.â&#x20AC;? Mayor John Williams presented Sorensen with a Quinte West shirt.


Hanna Bunton caps great season by being named Belleville’s amateur athlete of year

Sports – Belleville – The year 2013 couldn’t have gone much better for Hanna Bunton. It started with her as a member of the Whitby Junior Wolves and St. Theresa Titans women’s hockey teams. It ended with her as a member of the NCAA’s Cornell Big Red on her way to being named an Ivy League Rookie of the Year. And, oh yeah, in 2013 she also won a gold medal for Canada at the Under 18 World Hockey Championships in Finland. To cap it off, she was named the Robinson-Kelleher Memorial Award winner, as Belleville’s top amateur athlete for 2013, at a city-hosted awards ceremony Thursday, April 24. Bunton was part of the St. Theresa team that won an Ontario high school championship in 2013. The following year, with Cornell, she would score seven goals and 18 assists over 32 games, to help her team post an overall record of 24-6-4 and advance to the U.S. national championship tournament, where it was eventually eliminated. But Bunton truly immortalized herself in local and national hockey lore by assisting on the overtime winning goal in a 2 - 1 win for Canada over the United States in the world championships in January 2013. All and all, it wasn’t a bad season for the St. Theresa graduate. She was just one of a star-studded list of athletes, recognized at the annual city sports awards night, held at the Quinte Sports & Wellness Centre. Mayor Neil Ellis was the presenter and city councillor and local sports broadcaster Jack Miller was the master of ceremonies.

Festival stars featured in Friday concert

By Richard Turtle

News - Stirling - The final classes in the 64th Annual Stirling Festival of Sacred Praise wrapped up last week and organizers have invited the top finishers to participate in this weekend’s Stars of the Festival concert, scheduled for Friday at 7 p.m. at St. Paul’s United Church.

Open to the public, the evening show features participants in many disciplines from scripture reading to instrumental performance, who took part in the two-week festival held at both the church and the Stirling Festival Theatre. Festival Committee President Donna Russett says the

event was once again a huge success, offering encouragement and incentive to young performers as well as a platform for competitive musicians and singers. As a member of the Ontario Music Festivals Association, the Festival of Sacred Praise has accreditation to send participants on to provincial competition at the recommendation of adjudicators. But the festival is more about encouraging young people than about competition, Russett says, noting during her many years of involvement there are plenty of familiar faces returning each year. School and church groups as well as individuals and families are represented in the annual celebration that this year ran from April 22 to May 2. Classes in various categories including vocal, instrumental and scripture, are presented and adjudicated as part of the regional competition with constructive criticism and advice provided by the invited judges.

of the SAR team to the test. This provides 424 Squadron’s SAR crews, and the crews of partner agencies, invaluable interaction and exposure to how SAR operations are conducted and how they can better work together in responding to life-saving calls. Scenarios throughout the week include a simulated aircraft crash at Mont Cascades, simulated maritime distress at the Cumberland-Masson ferry, and other simulated crash scenarios in more remote locations of the Gatineau hills. “TIGEREX 2014 serves to exercise a multi-day major search with operations taking place away from the Squadron’s main operating base,” said LieutenantColonel Jean Bernier, Commanding Officer of 424 Squadron. “In

such circumstances, our partner organizations from the areas of operation usually help during the search, requiring large scale cooperation and co-ordination. This exercise provides 424 Squadron great training opportunities and exposure to such an environment.” Volunteer SAR organizations such as the Sauvetage et recherche aériens du Québec (SERABEC) and the Civil Air Search and Rescue Association (CASARA), with whom 424 Squadron regularly works, are annual participants of TIGEREX. This year’s exercise will also include participation of the Sureté du Québec, Ontario Provincial Police, and local paramedics and fire rescue crews from the Gatineau area. 424 Squadron is based in 8

World War I commemoration planned


By Diane Sherman

Lifestyles - Madoc - This year marks the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of â&#x20AC;&#x153;the ďŹ rst Great War,â&#x20AC;? World War I, the ďŹ rst global war known to civilization. The war involved economic powers from around the world with over nine million combatants killed. It became known as the deadliest war in history. The war was touched off by the assassination of the Archduke of Austria, Franz Ferdinand, on June 28, 1914. August 4, 1914, Britain declared war on Germany, and when the call went out for recruits, thousands of new Canadians, as part of the British Dominion, were called into a Canadian expe-

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s institutes did a great deal of work both during and after both the wars.â&#x20AC;? Godfrey says there were 39 casualties from the Madoc region. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Their names are shown on local cenotaphs thanks to members of the Harts-Riggs Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Institute.â&#x20AC;? He credits the Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Institute with pressuring local authorities to build the cenotaphs (both in Madoc Village and Cooper) whereupon all the names are listed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s institutes did a great deal of work both during and after both the wars.â&#x20AC;? The public is invited to share their stories at the library June 21, review the posters, and enjoy light refreshments followed by the poster prize award and a presentation of Madoc at War.

Durkin tells crime story with poetry By Richard Turtle

Entertainment â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Stirling â&#x20AC;&#x201C; After leaving the area for several years, poet Martin Durkin has returned to Stirling with his wife Kelly, and he admits things are much quieter here. But while the couple was living in Hamilton, Durkin says, he fell in love with the city and drew much inspiration from the colourful characters in their neighbourhood. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just soaked up the atmosphere there,â&#x20AC;? he says of the years spent in construction while Kelly completed a Masterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s degree. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s both beautiful and tough,â&#x20AC;? Durkin says of the city known for its steel. And it is also the subject of his most recent book of poems, entitled Steel Town For Mary: Memoirs From a dick, now available on the Internet and at selected locations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a love letter to Hamilton,â&#x20AC;? he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but I think anyone can appreciate it.â&#x20AC;?

Stirling resident and poet Martin Durkin recently released his third book of poetry, Steel Town For Mary: Memoirs From a Dick, and will be reading excerpts at the Stirling-Rawdon Public Library on May 22 at 6:30 p.m. Photo: Richard Turtle

Intrigued by the idea of working on a collection of combining poetry with a de- poems that follow the career tective story, Durkin began of a private eye. The ďŹ nal re-

sult, he says, has so far been very well received. Durkin explains that with little real knowledge of the craft, he began writing poetry as a student at Nicholson, continuing while studying journalism at Loyalist. He was encouraged by readers, fellow writers and teachers to continue and many of those were published in his ďŹ rst book, Hypnotic Childhood, also featuring some of his photography. A second collection, The Sound of Quish, he describes as, â&#x20AC;&#x153;more mature,â&#x20AC;? but confesses, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I still hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really learned the craft.â&#x20AC;? Later, while working at the Trentonian, he was introduced to the work of acclaimed local poet Al Purdy and that, Durkin says, was an eye-opener. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I realized that I had a hell of a lot to learn.â&#x20AC;? So he continued to write but at the same time began to seriously study the

work of others. That led to weekend readings and the publishing of several of his poems in various anthologies, but he remained haunted by a detective story that was coming from Hamilton. So he started to write it down, he says, as it might have appeared in a notebook. Durkin returned to Stirling and is now living in the home his grandparents, Jack and Mary Doran, used to own. Soon after moving in in the fall of 2012, the couple discovered a cache of his grandmotherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s old drawings and sketches dating back to the 1930s. One of those found its way onto the cover of Durkinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Steel Town, featuring a reďŹ&#x201A;ected skyline of the city

and designed by his wife. Durkin is planning a homecoming of sorts when he will be reading poems from the book at a launch being held at the Stirling-Rawdon Public Library, where years ago his grandfather served as a board member. The launch is scheduled for Thursday, May 22, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Copies will be available at the launch or can be ordered online.

Automobile racing in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin By John M. Smith

Lifestyles - Back in the early 1950s (between 1950 and 1952), the tiny village of Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin, became world famous for its open-road race circuits. Top sports car drivers would descend on this particular village each summer and race through the winding, hilly, narrow road circuits. Hay bales, snow fences, and screaming fans lined the challenging, dangerous routes. The 1950 road circuit, held on a public highway, was 3.3 miles long, and fans could simply line the route and watch for free (although programs were sold for 50 cents). By 1951, news of the big event was spreading further afield, and more race fans were arriving. The road course expanded to 6.6 miles in length and circumnavigated Elkhart Lake. By 1952, it was estimated that well over 100,000 fans attended the weekend event, and it was becoming apparent that safety for both the fans and the drivers was becoming much more of an issue. No one had been killed here as yet, but race drivers had skidded off the road and landed in blueberries and poison ivy, and some thought that it was only a matter of time before a real tragedy might occur. A ten-year-old spectator was killed at Watkins Glen, New York, that same year, and it was decided that the era of the road race must come to an end! Fourteen historical markers are now placed around these two winding circuits, to commemorate the big names and events that occurred here

back then, and these openroad routes are now listed on the Wisconsin and National Register of Historic Places. Today, visitors can drive or bike around the old circuits and check them out, and I, of course, did that very thing when I was in Elkhart Lake recently. I was particularly interested in the names that I found on those markers, which included “Hard Left,” “Ted’s Turn,” “Peck’s Alley,” “Dickens Ditch,” “Hamill’s Hollow,” and “Wacker’s Wend.” I also tried to imagine what it would have been like back then in the tiny village, with its population of less than 1,000, hosting such crowds and what such an event would mean to the local economy! Well, apparently some of the locals were also thinking about the economical impact back then, too, and it was decided to build a permanent 4.05-mile road circuit (with 14 turns and several elevation changes) in what had been a sand and gravel pit. “Road America,” affectionately known as “America’s National Park of Speed,” was opened in 1955, and it now hosts over 400 events annually, including the NASCAR Nationwide Series, the SPEED World Challenge, the American LeMans series, Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) events, several vintage car races, a Vintage Motorcycle Classic, and the AMA Superbike series. There’s also an annual Road America Walk/Run for the American Cancer Society, the Road America Inline Challenge, and the Tour de Road America (a bicycle


There are six entrances to “Road America” and on-site camping.

I actually participated in the ATV Adventure Program, so I had the opportunity to use one of their Suzuki four-wheel, all-terrain vehicles on the groomed trails. I even took a bridge across the race track and then dealt with the trail’s steep descents and ascents and rocky terrain. It was a blast! I met Mary Lou Haen, Road America’s Marketing and Promotions Director, and I learned there’s no reserved seating here, even on race weekends. Visitors can sit where they wish—in the stands or on the grounds—and there are camping facilities on the premises, too (locations and pricing vary by event). For more information about Road America’s programs, events and pricing, visit the web site <>. As a result of Elkhart Lake’s racing history and state-of-the-art facilities, many race car drivers and celebrities including Mario Andretti, Roger Penske, Bobby Rahal, Paul Tracy, Dario Franchitti, Carl Edwards, Patrick Dempsey, Michael Jordan, Paul Newman, and Tom Cruise have visited this destination. Perhaps you will, too.

ride on the track to raise money to fight cancer). I visited “Road America,” and I actually got right out on the track itself for some photos. I also dined in one of its VIP suites and then watched some riding school participants “doing their thing” on the asphalt circuit. I also learned about the facility’s teen driving program, motorcycle school, and high performance driving program. In the latter, participants learn advanced car control techniques through a series of drills that involve braking, cornering, and acceleration. I also discovered that there’s an opportunity, at times, to even drive one’s own car around the course, or to take “a ride of a lifetime” as a passenger in a pace car! The 640-acre site also offers “Adventure Programs,” including paintball, karting, ATV explorations, and geocaching (technological scavenger hunts), and these are proving to be very popular with corporate groups for team building exercises. I’m right on the track to get this photo (between races). (above) Race cars on the track at “Road America.

The Good Earth:

Lifestyles - Those cold rainy days of November, which showed up for a reprise this past April have finally gone not counting May 1, 2, and 3 of course. What a lousy month for antsy gardeners! Gentle Reader, welcome to a normal spring. We have been led astray these past four or five years with uncommonly benign Aprils and a return

April showers, winter reprise and varmints to normalcy has caught us off guard. This has been a super winter for both herbaceous and woody perennials … and varmints. It has been a lousy year for unprotected shrubs and young trees as well as big old shade trees. We had a nice fall, with good frosts that hardened off plants just the way they should be. We received a nice bit of snow to provide protection for the aforementioned perennials. All was well. Then the first ice storm blew through the region taking down the first offering of tree branches. However, that was not the real story. (Keep in mind that this is from a gardening perspective, folks, and in no way is meant to take away from problems because of fallen trees and power outages.) An ice sheet formed about 6”- 8” above the ground which provided the perfect barrier to protect little rodents from predators. Mice nibbled away delicately and voles chowed down voraciously on any woody material they found. The

rabbits carried on as they normally do. And the snow fell. And the snow fell. And the snow fell. Then a second ice storm swept through leaving a trail of debris in its wake. It battered previously weakened tree limbs but, more seriously, it also left another, higher layer of ice allowing the little varmints to move up in the world. Combined with the greater amounts of snow, this new layer was above most of our rodent protection, especially tree wraps and fencing. So even though you did everything right in the fall, GR, you were done in by the late winter weather. If your plant is girdled more than half way round you’re better off to accept that it is finished. However, don’t toss it on the compost heap just yet. Some early flowering plants (magnolia and crab-apples come to mind) just might have enough stored food in the upper branches to support flowering before turning into vertical firewood. You

have nothing to lose. Non-grafted, or “own root” plants should put out new shoots; think roses from the Explorer, Parkland, and Flower Carpet series. At our nursery, we faced two challenges. We had to add an extra stage of fencing, making our protection 8’ high in spots and, with drifting, it still wasn’t high enough! Flopsy and kin casually stepped over the three or four inches still poking out of the snow and dined on tender bark and stems normally well beyond their normal foraging zone. The second challenge was the ice. Our hoop houses are about 20’ apart and, when the storms are nor’easters, the snow can collect between them. That’s usually not an issue. Add in two ice storms and some sunny days between them. (Yes, there were instances when the sun shone and I know this because I reviewed the logs; but like you, I sure don’t remember them.) The eight-foot-high drifts melted into one massive ice sheet. We

were very impressed with the ability of the supporting members to accept this weight. And then a windstorm came. The combination of the weight and the wind pressure was too much and 20 sections collapsed. Back to varmints for a moment; we haven’t taken off our tree guards yet and probably won’t for another week. There are just too many rabbits cluttering up the neighbourhood and not enough foxes and owls to manage them. On a different train of thought, but still keeping with varmints (I keep hearing Yosemite Sam spouting off whenever I use that word.) squirrels have done their bit with our fall planting of bulbs. This year, because of their numbers, we stayed away from tulips and popped in a huge number of daffodils and smaller bulbs. The daffs are all coming up when and where they should be but the muscari, squills, crocus, galanthus and so on have been transplanted by those busybodies. Sigh.

Art in the Park festival largest in its four years

Northumberland-Quinte West MPP Rick Norlock announced last Friday that the federal government was providing $8,400 in funding to the Warkworth Art (and Music) in the Park festival, sponsored by the Warkworth Business Association. Ruth Wojtiuk is chair of the organizing committee and Howard Baer will be one of the musicians performing, as a member of the (Michael) Monis Baer duo. “A wide range of mediums form fine art to music to sculpture ensures there will be something for visitors of all ages,” Wojtiuk said.

News - Warkworth - This year’s edition of the Warkworth Art (and Music) in the Park “will be the largest and most exciting” in its four-year history, says the chair of the organizing committee. “We’re very excited,” Ruth Wojtiuk said, pointing to the record number of artists, 31, who will be taking part in the Warkworth Business Association event May 17 and 18. There will be “new artists who have not exhibited before as well as some returning ones,” she said, and new musicians joining “seasoned veterans.” Warkworth Town Hall Centre for the Arts will have a new art installation and there will be entertainment for children at Warkworth Memorial Hall. “We always try to keep it fresh and interesting,” Wojtiuk said. To top it off, she also predicted the weather will be good, “so people will want to come out [for the] lovely music, wonderful food, fabulous art,” with

things always going on on Main Street. “It’s just a terrific family event.” Helping to make it possible was $8,400 in funding provided by the federal government through its Building Communities Through Arts and Heritage programs. The amount is slightly more than was received last year by the association, which has been supported by federal dollars since the event began. The longer festivals last and “show a success

rate,” with the numbers getting bigger, “then the cheques are supposed to follow suit,” Northumberland-Quinte West MPP Rick Norlock told the Independent. “The Warkworth Art in the Park festival has become an outstanding showcase of local artists and artisans in the community, and I am proud to see such a tremendous festival flourish with the support of the Government of Canada,” he stated in a media release announcing the funding.

News - Trent Hills - As the 13th annual Spring Revival was drawing to a close, organizer John Graham was hoping to cap off the weekend by setting a Guinness world record. He missed it by five bottle caps. The owner of ChurchKey Brewing at Petherick’s Corners where the revival was held had hoped to break a record set in Texas of 110

bottles being opened in one minute. But the best he could do on two tries was 106, two fewer than he managed a year ago. And he nicked a finger in the effort. “You’re going as fast as you can,” sometimes the neck bottles break. “It’s one of those things I can’t practise for because there are very few opportunities to open a 100 bottles of beer,” he said in advance of the record

bid. “We have to do it at an event like this.” While Graham was no doubt disappointed at falling short of his goal— “room to improve,” he quipped—he can take comfort in knowing the festival raised $2,242 in support of the Blues in the Schools program that’s offered to schools in Trent Hills. That’s in addition to the $1,500 Peggy Voigt, president of the Loyal Blues Fellowship Inc., accepted from Matt Archer. He presented the donation in memory of his brother, Jesse Archer, a popular musician who performed at Spring Revival, before he was shot to death in 2010. This is the third year Church-Key has turned over proceeds to the Blues in the Schools. “It was Matt’s family that helped us choose this charity and we’ve been really happy with it,” Graham said. “It makes a difference. It’s such a neat musical town … We’re grooming kids from really young to be fantastic musicians and it shows up on the national stage.” Blues in the School has introduced to the area in 2005.

He spent time with junior, middle and senior classes, in Campbellford and Warkworth, teaching them basic blues progression and blues history, Voigt said, “and then writing words to their own blues songs” and performing them in front of the rest of the school in an assembly. “Having events like this support us is fantastic,” she said.

News - Trent Hills - Residents in low-lying areas are being told it’s “imperative” they keep sandbags in place around their homes as water levels slowly decrease. The municipality issued a press release May 2 saying water levels in many areas are still above those recorded in 2008, the last time there was major flooding. A state of emergency that was declared April 24 also remains in effect. Trent Hills will not be picking up any of the sandbags that were delivered to flooded sites and residents. Recipients were encouraged to store the sandbags for future use after water levels have returned to normal, and to protect them from direct sunlight. To help homeowners prepare for “the eventual flood recovery,” the municipality prepared an information package on such things as removing mould, disinfecting wells, and returning to service septic systems that had been flooded. About 1,500 letters were sent out to residents in flooded areas letting them know the packages are available at the municipal office or online. Residents in low-lying areas were “strongly advised” to not use well water for any purpose and to keep children and pets away from all floodwaters and “potentially contaminated standing water.” A OPP marine unit patrolling the waters was enforcing a “no wake” rule put into effect on waterways near

New ways of worship a “breath of fresh air” By John Campbell

News - Brighton - Area members of the United Church looking for new ways to express their faith were shown how at the Breath of Fresh Air Fair held last Saturday at Trinity-St. Andrew’s. “Oftentimes in our churches things get a little stale, they get a little routine and we do the same things over and over,” and the results aren’t always what’s expected, said the Reverend Cathy Grandante. “So it’s nice to have an opportunity where you can actually experience something different and maybe you can take that home to your own congregation,” feeling “energized and enthusiastic about your church.” The event was the first of its kind to take place in the Hills and Shores Presbytery (part of the Bay of Quinte Conference of the United Church of Canada). The area encompasses churches in Brighton, Cobourg, Belleville, Quinte West and Trent Hills. “Part of our mandate is to have a learning and education faith formation opportunity for members of the presbytery,” said Grandante, minister for Seymour Pastoral Charge in Trent Hills. The fair included taize and cafe worship, “messy church,” Biblical story tell-

ing, non-traditional music and liturgical dancing. It’s about “rejuvenation,” said the Reverend Janet Stobie, who led the group in taize worship, which involves sung and chanted prayers, along with a period of silence, to achieve spiritual growth. The author of several books, she also conducted a story-telling session, accompanied by a harpist, matching a modern-day story with passages from the Bible. They were “meant to be spoken, not read out of a book, [which is] kind of dull and boring,” Grandante said. This way of telling the story “enlivens it and gives it a little more meaning for people.” The Breath of Fresh Air Fair, which ran four-and-ahalf hours, started off at 10 a.m. with cafe worship, with all those in attendance sitting together at tables, enjoying a cup of tea or coffee, talking about their faith. “It’s not something we do very often, and it’s kind of scary I know,” Gradante said, but it’s a way “to build community with one another.” Messy church “came out of the Anglican tradition,” in which different generations gather together to sing, work at a craft and share a meal, she said. Scobie said the United Church introduced messy

church in recent years because “young families often don’t make time to come to church on Sunday mornings … for whatever reason.” It often takes place on another day of the week during the supper hour. “There isn’t this sitting in pews,” she said. “It’s very, very relaxed.” The non-traditional music included

“lively pieces” by jazz musicians that fit “quite well” with the day’s non-conventional forms of worship. Stobie, who’s retired and lives in Peterborough, said older members of the church get “used to things being the way they are” but “anything you do the same for a long period of time becomes routine [and] loses its energy.

“That’s why there’s a need God’s spirit to come in [to to have this breath of fresh generate] new ideas and new air,” she said. “It’s asking for experiences for people.”

Will Howson, of Howsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pure Maple Syrup and Honey, near Hastings was there to show her their product. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is our third year at the market and we like to come here,â&#x20AC;? he told the Trent Hills Independent. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re here every week.â&#x20AC;? The Howsons sell not only pure maple syrup and honey but bee pollen too. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some people like to put it on their porridge or in their salad,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We recommend to anyone who buys the bee pollen that they try a small amount first just in case of any allergies. You have no idea where the bees got the pollen,â&#x20AC;? he explained. Between eight and 13 vendors set up booths on the municipal parking lot and closed-off section of River Street. Their wares include fresh fruit and vegetables, herbs, perennials, annuals, beef, eggs, honey, maple syrup, baked goods and crafts. Bill Shea of Campbellford was buying some lavender from the Vaughans on opening day For Shea shopping at the market is an experience he enjoys on a regular basis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I like the fact it is local, I like the fact this ladyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s produce is organic and you can pretty much find whatever you want here ... and if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t then ask,â&#x20AC;? he said with a grin.

Organizers say the show annually attracts about 5,000 on its opening day and, Detlor says, plans are to continue to make it bigger and better.

would be in blossom,â&#x20AC;? she said. She said the cast has been rehearsing for two months and the set is all ready to go. It would have been horrible to shut it down now. Roy added that the plays at My Theatre in the renovated space at 55 King Street have been really popular with all 77 seats full for nine shows. Now that the spring and summer seasons are here, even more people will want to take in the entertainment. My Theatre was originally named the Bay of Quinte Community Players and has been subsidized partly by Trenval. The Trent Port Historical Society (TPHS) uses the first floor for its museum displays and small cafe. It was responsible for restoring the building when it took over from the city in 1994. Shawn Ellis, president of the TPHS, said he is the one who called the fire inspector and the building inspector. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just wanted to make sure everything was being

done right,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I did not think they would shut us down.â&#x20AC;? He said there have only been a few things identified as not up to Code, like replacing wooden doors with fire doors and installing a fire curtain on stage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are no structural problems,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just a lot of little things.â&#x20AC;? The Trenton DBIA just vacated its office in the downstairs last week, ahead of the announcement. It is now at the Rock 107 office downtown. Ellis said that space will be needed for the new elevator to be installed. Bev Roy said the board cancelled some ads and notiďŹ ed people on their website when they thought they would be shut down. They now want people to know that Steel Magnolias is on again, same time, same place. More information is at <> and tickets can be purchased through the Chamber of Commerce.

Team captains rally at Bark for Life walk-a-thon

Leona McGee is in charge of the “Fight Back Zone”. Having won her first battle by advocating for the ban of tanning beds for youth under the age of 18, she is on to her next fight, called “Cancer Virginia Hendricks, who lost her husband to cancer in 2008, bravely spoke shouldn’t come in a Candy Wrapper - end the to walkers gathered last Sunday for the Bark for Life walk-a-thon. She and her late husband’s dog Henry joined in the event. Photo: Sue Dickens It was a bit of a struggle for a few minutes to get man’s best friend to pose alongside their owners at the Bark for Life Walk-a- flavour,” as she hopes to stop the sale of candy thon but these folks know all about struggles as they devoted their time to raise money to fight cancer at the first ever walk-a- flavoured cigarettes filled with tobacco to young people.

News – Campbellford – The tale of how a puppy named Henry brought home the real reason why fund-raising events such as the Bark for Life walk-a-thon and the Trent Hills Relay for Life are so important. Virginia Hendricks, who lost her husband to cancer in 2008, spoke to walkers gathered last Sunday about just how much Henry means to her and the role he played during her husband’s battle to fight cancer. “My husband was diagnosed with small cell lung cancer in December 2008. On January 2, 2009 on our 55th wedding anniversary, we were told that Ross had six weeks to live without treatment or six months with aggressive treatment, chemo and radiation. He chose treatment,” she bravely told

walkers gathered for the walk-athon. Hendricks told her story of their search for a puppy at a kennel when “Henry came out from another room looked at Ross and curled up on his feet.” “Whether Ross was in bed or in his favourite chair Henry would cuddle up with him and stay with him. Eventually Ross had to go into palliative care and when I would go to the hospital every day I would tell Henry he had to watch the house. Henry would look at me then go curl up in Ross’s chair and wait for me to come home,” she explained. “Ross lived 12 months and Henry is still with me. Ross’s chair is still Henry’s favourite place to snuggle in,” she added. Her story touched the hearts of all the walkers who were there to

raise money for cancer research. “We are all here today because cancer affects your lives one way or another,” said Emily Vassiliadis, Relay for Life fund-raising coordinator at the Peterborough office of the Canadian Cancer Society. While the walkers headed onto the track at the Campbellford fairgrounds, dozens of people gathered inside the Red Barn where they registered their teams and picked up kits for this year’s Trent Hills Relay for Life, which will take place September 5 from 7 p.m. to 12:01 a.m. The special rally held in conjunction with the Bark for Life walk-athon, gave team captains the opportunity to gather the information they need to make this year’s event another success. “Today is the captain’s rally. We encouraged new and old to come

and find out what’s new,” commented Brooke Allan, who was busy taking names and making sure everyone received their kits and made their way to display tables. One of those displays, home to the “Fight Back Zone” was being looked after by Leona McGee, who spent more than three years asking people to sign the ban so no youth 18 and under could use tanning beds. “On October 9, 2013 Bill 74 (The Skin Cancer Prevention Act) was passed. We were successful,” she said with a big grin. McGee is already working on her next campaign, “Cancer shouldn’t come in a candy wrapper – end the flavour,” as she fights to stop the sale of candy flavoured cigarettes filled with tobacco. “Research showed in 2012, 52 per cent of children in grades 6 to 12 have already tried these products,” said McGee, armed with statistics. She will be taking her message to this

Derby looking for the Usain Bolt of goats

News – Campbellford – Bet you didn’t know there’s more to goats than milk and cheese. They’re also topnotch athletes, says Debbie Nightingale, a Nigerian dwarf goat breeder in Trent Hills. You can judge for yourself when the Trent Hills Goat Derby makes its debut at the inaugural Incredible Edibles Festival July 12 (10 a.m to 4 p.m.) The derby will be run in downtown Campbellford and there are no limitations on ages of owners or goats. Nightingale, a member of the

festival committee, says she got the idea for the event from an article she read about the Falmouth Goat Races in Pennsylvania where they’ve been a huge draw for 34 years. The president of the Falmouth races has been invited to judge at the Trent Hills Goat Derby. “We’re really excited, Nightingale says of the derby, adding: “We are expecting big crowds for the Incredible Edibles Festival. So the Goat Derby will be a terrific opportunity for a lot of people to see that goats aren’t just

good for milk and cheese – they can also be elite athletes!” There will be prizes for firstand second-place goats (and their owners/human handlers) as well as for best-dressed goat, and most entertaining run. Registration forms and rules are available at or by email at incredibleediblesfestival@ The Derby is sponsored by Haute Goat – celebrating the joy of all things goat.
