EMC News - Belleville - It’s been 60 long years since the end of the Korean War, and on July 27 veterans of what is commonly known as Canada’s forgotten war gathered the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 99 to mark the exact day the armistice to end the war was signed, and celebrate Canada’s first Korean War Veterans Day. “Quite frankly, without their sacrifices we don’t have the nation we do,” said MP Daryl Kramp, who was on hand to present the Korean War veterans with a special certificate in honour of their actions. “It’s not just the sacrifice so that we have our country, but we have the values, beliefs

and principles that we stand for.” The Korean War was a conflict between the Republic of Korea, supported by the United Nations, and North Korea, which invaded the south in June of 1950. Following the Chinese entrance into the war, Canada sent a total of 26,000 troops to aid the South Korean side, losing 516 Canadians before the war was over. “Imagine, Korea, three years out of your life to go over to fight in a country that really means nothing to us,” said Joe Drummond, who helped organize the celebration in Belleville on July 27. “But it was to stop the spread of communism, and that’s what they did. imagine what South

away from it, and when the call came we answered it.” McIntyre was present when the armistice was signed and the war ended, and said it was “happy days,” although you could never feel too safe. McIntyre revisited South Korea three years ago with a contingent of other international veterans, and said they were treated like royalty by their South Korean hosts. “[War] is something that I don’t want other people to have to go through,” he said. “War never settles it, and too many young people died.” While only 13 Korean War veterans were invited to the celebration on July 27, Drummond said he has no doubt there are Please see”Veterans” page 3

Korea would be like if they hadn’t.” John McIntyre was from Prince Edward County, and joined the armed forces in 1952, 13 months before the war ended. McIntyre came from a strong military background, with his father and brother having both served in the military, his father fighting in World War II, which had ended just five years before the conflict began. McIntyre spent 13 months in Korea as part of the Royal Canadian Regiment. “Since then I think back, the cause was justified, why we were there,” McIntyre said. “We were fighting communism, the aggression of communism, and to the people of South Korea they wanted to stay

EMC Events - Belleville - Family fun and amazing eats are the name of the game at the seventh annual Big Brothers Big Sisters Ribfest presented by Investors Group this summer, and Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) of Hastings and Prince Edward Counties special events co-ordinator Arlene Coculuzzi said she’s hoping to see more than 35,000 people attend the fund-raising event in 2013. Taking place from August 9 to 11 this year at West Zwicks Park, Big Brothers Big Sisters Ribfest will feature a wide range of vendors, foods, entertainment and activities for all members of the family. The event kicks off on August 9 beginning at 11:30 a.m. with a Kidz Zone and the opening of the vendor village, and of course the namesake of the event, the ribbers. This year Ribfest will feature the talents of five rib artists from both the U.S. and Canada: from Brewton, Alabama, Camp 31; from London, Ontario, Jack the Ribber; from Daytona, Florida, Hawgs Gone Wild; and another pair of ribbers from London, Ontario; Ribs Royale and Crabby’s BBQ Shack. “I honestly don’t eat ribs all year round until this event,” Coculuzzi said with a laugh. The Kidz Zone runs from 11:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. and contains a variety of activities including an IPAC Trailer and Family Fun Inflatables, while the Vendor Village on Friday runs from 11:30 a.m. until 8 p.m., and is meant for general shopping, while additional food vendors remain centred around the ribbers area. Opening ceremonies for the event take place at 5 p.m., and live entertainment begins at 6 p.m. with The Remedy, followed by Ambush from 9 to 11 p.m. The event also features an expanded licensed area this year. “[The licensed area] is still going to be fenced in, just not confined to a small area like before,” Coculuzzi said. On Saturday, the Kidz Zone will feature a number of additional activities including a Hot Diggity Dogs Flyball Show and a petting zoo. BBBS will also host a dunk tank from 1 to 4 p.m. Live entertainment on Saturday includes a performance from Inside Out Dance Academy at 2 p.m., live music from Cruisin at 6 p.m. and a performance from Bon Journey at 9 p.m. Sunday follows a similar format, with the addition of Jamie Stever on stage at 2 p.m., however, the festival holds closing ceremonies beginning at 4:30 p.m. People’s choice and celebrity judging prizes will be awarded beginning at 3 p.m. Proceeds from the event help benefit a wide range of BBBS mentoring services the agency provides to children and youth in our community and surrounding areas. Admission is free, and parking is a minimum $2 donation. Coculuzzi said the event raised roughly $45,000 in 2012, a total she hopes to eclipse this year. Additional volunteers are also welcome. Contact Caitlin Dougherty at 613-962.3666 ext 35. For more information on the event, including a complete schedule, visit the Events page at <>.

ministration placed the brick in 1971 without setting a date for opening it back up. With the imminent demolition of the building, QHC staff decided now was the time. When the brick was removed to reveal what was behind, the paper envelope was greeted by more than a little surprise, even by those who had been there when the brick was placed, many having forgotten long ago what was placed inside. Inside the envelope, hospital staff unveiled a number of items, including a newspaper clipping from when the building first opened, an invitation to the laying of the cornerstone, a school budget, a school calendar and a school program. “It’s very interesting,” said the former nursing school principal Madge Flindall, who actually helped place the items inside. “I couldn’t remember what all was in it. It’s kind of sad, but I know you have to make way for progress.” After the building was ofWorkers uncover a time capsule stored away in 1971 at the Edith Cavell Building at the Belleville ficially opened in 1972, it General Hospital on Monday, July 29.

for only a little over a year; in 1973 nursing education was transferred to Loyalist College, along with all the students and staff. Over the years, the building had served a number of different purposes, including as a physician’s office, outpatient mental health services, and the children’s treatment centre, and had been empty since 2012 in preparation for demolition. “I think it’s a nice way to commemorate the uses of the building over the years,” said Rowe, after the capsule had been opened. “Because it is being demolished, so I think it’s important for us to imagine the milestone, and I’m glad they put the time capsule together so that we could go back and look at everything.” The property will be used for expanded parking for BGH after the building is demolished. “We’ll be able to make good use out of the land; it’s just another milestone in our entire redevelopment of BGH and another phase of the project,” Rowe said.

Council accommodates new marina

EMC News - Belleville - A special and brief meeting of Belleville City Council Friday afternoon cleared the way for work to proceed on a new marina at the former Morch complex in Belleville

harbour. The 5:30 p.m. meeting on a Friday raised a few eyebrows even among members of council who fretted at one point whether they would even have a quorum to complete the business.

A bylaw quickly passed three readings to authorize a lease between the city and the developer. Mayor Neil Ellis explained that the lease is required to satisfy Quinte Conservation which will now allow work on repair and al-

teration to the existing seawall to proceed. The new complex will include docking slips plus a full-service marina sales and service agency. Council’s next regular meeting is Monday, August 12, at 4 p.m.

Empire Rockfest attracts thousands Photos: by Steve Jessel

Continued from page 1 By Steve Jessel

EMC Entertainment - Belleville - The sounds of roaring guitars and raw, piercing vocals filled downtown Belleville this past weekend, and in the aftermath of Empire Rockfest 2013 Empire Theatre promotional manager Andy Forgie said he was blown away by the talent on display over the three-day show. “I thought all of the acts, regardless of the style of music they performed was all top-notch; everybody just played and sang their butts off, nobody phoned it in,” Grammy-award winners Journey were definitely a crowd-favourite during Empire Rockfest. he said. “Sometimes I think there’s a misconception about big time bands that travel the world and do all kinds of glamourous things, that when they come to a smaller community sometimes they may not necessarily be right into it. That was certainly not the case of any single performance [this year].” Officially kicking off on Thursday, July 25, a crowd approaching 3,000 spectators were on hand for the first round of performances, starting with American rockers Night Ranger. After an energetic, guitar-driven performance, original Styx lead vocalist Dennis DeYoung was next Empire Rockfest veteran Kim Mitchell clearly enjoyed his time on stage. on the stage, before multimillion album selling rock group REO Speedwagon ended the night on a high note, performing many of their old classics. “The funny thing is, we’ve had Styx perform here without Dennis DeYoung, and we’ve had Dennis DeYoung perform here without Styx, but they’re both singing the same songs,” Forgie said with a laugh. Friday, July 26, featured another full lineup of music, beginning with the always popular East Coast singer/ songwriter Matt Anderson. Perennial Canadian “Bad Apple” David Wilcox was next up, bringing with him his own brand of eclectic stage presence and unique Founding Toto member Steve Lukather (guitar) and current lead vocalist Joseph Williams put on a musical stylings, and finally flawless performance with what remains of the grammy-award winning band Grammy-winning American

rock band Toto put on an electric performance as the evenings’ headlining act, ending with their rock anthem Hold the Line, joined by another roughly 3,000 spectators, many of them singing along. “Matt Anderson blew my mind,” Forgie said. “[Anderson] always, always delivers the goods … he’s really something, just out there all by himself with a guitar and that big voice of his. That’s a big job to tackle.” While space in the audience was hard to come by during the first two nights of Rockfest, they were nothing compared to the sellout crowd of almost 4,000 people that came to Empire Square on Saturday night to see headliner Journey and Canadian rock legend and Rockfest staple Kim Mitchell. As the refrains of Mitchell’s popular songs Go for a Soda and Patio Lanterns slowly faded, the buzz and excitement slowly reached its peak, culminating with Journey taking the stage shortly after 9 p.m. Led by new lead vocalist Arnel Pineda, Journey put on a highly entertaining show, complete with all the bells and whistles one might expect from a world-class rock group. “They really put on a show … it’s one thing to sing well and play well, but they really entertained,” Forgie said. “The new fellow on vocals, I think half the people wanted to take him home … he really won them over and put on a wonderful show, his enthusiasm was infectious.” Looking ahead to next year, Forgie said that while they probably won’t make any major changes, they’re always tweaking the event to maintain their level of excellence year after year. The event also managed to raise over $9,000 this year for the Three Oaks women’s shelter through the Royal Lepage Shelter Foundation. “I think it went great … I know I’m supposed to say that, but I really do think it went great,” Forgie said.

Raising funds for our furry companions By Steve Jessel

EMC News - Belleville Our furry friends can help us through some tough times, and one couple in the region is making it their mission to give something back to the hundreds of animals waiting for adoption at the Quinte Humane Society with the second annual Quinte Ride For Paws. “The overflow that [the QHS] have there, I have no idea how they do it,” said organizer Tamalin Vajda. “As of this week, they’re double kenneling dogs, there’s always over 300 cats in there … they try to do the best they can, and people don’t realize the cost involved.” Taking place this year on August 25, Quinte Ride for Paws is inviting any and all motorcyclists, animal lovers

and anyone else to come and help raise much-needed funds for the Quinte Humane Society. Meeting at the Trenton City Hall parking lot at 10 a.m. on August 25, there will be a brief meet and greet for riders, and a chance to take in the wide variety of bikes that are expected to show up for the event. At 11 a.m., the riders depart, taking a summer cruise that will eventually end up at the QHS, located at 527 Avonlough Road in Belleville. When they arrive, they’ll be greeted by four barbecues, raffles, prizes and 50/50 draws all in support of the QHS. “Everybody likes their pets,” Vajda said. “People realize that that’s the only way [the QHS] gets any funding; the government gives them no support.” The ride had its start last year,

known at the time as Bikes for Bitches. Despite having only two weeks to plan for the inaugural event, roughly 100 riders attended, raising over $2,300 in the process. Vajda said she hopes to triple that number this year, hoping to attract in the range of 300 people. She also adds that the event is not just for bikers, and that anyone is welcome to join the end-of-day celebration at the QHS at the end of the ride. Proceeds from the event benefit the QHS and Sandy Pines Wildlife Rescue in Napanee. “Come out and enjoy yourself, and let’s raise some money for the animals,” Vajda said.

With the interior of the expansion building near completion, the NAFMC continues to refine and reorganize the collection in anticipation of the installation of the new permanent exhibits. Between 1995 and 2009 the National Air Force Museum of Canada aircraft restoration team completely restored a World War II Halifax Bomber (NA337) which is on permanent display in the museum. On completion of NA337 it was decided to keep the team together and restore additional aircraft with historical significance to the Canadian Air Force. Currently there are two active projects in the restoration shop: the Avro Anson Mark II and the Lockheed Hudson Mark VI. Recently completed is a 1942 Harvard Mark II which will be placed on display in the museum this spring.

Concerned about the feral cats Dear Editor, To the mayor and council: I am a fairly new resident to Campbellford, having purchased a home on First Street last fall. I am really enjoying living in this town and think the people here, as in all of Trent Hills, are terrific. I also enjoy the many services the municipality provides. I understand this needs to be supported by our taxes and that times are tight for the municipality and for everyone else. Having said that, I am writing about a problem that is not exclusive to Campbellford and certainly not exclusive to Trent Hills—the problem of feral cats. In addition the problem is compounded by cat owners who do not spay or neuter their own cats and let them roam. The neighbourhood Toms and the feral Toms end up mating with the feral mothers who end up with kittens no one wants. Since moving here I had a young family of three kittens grow up over a bitter cold winter here in my back yard and I fed them as well as the other Toms that came by looking for food.

Two have since returned, the females with batches of kittens themselves. One was rescued with her five kittens by Suzanne Hart, who is doing her best with other volunteers to spay and neuter these feral cats and place them, if young enough, in a foster home. She is based in Havelock and I believe she has been in touch with you folks looking for some kind of financial support. The organization does have a few foster homes but not enough and so the female that has returned here to my backyard with her three kittens has nowhere to go. And so every morning I look to see if they are still okay. Another calico that has shown up for months appeared at my front door this week with her three kittens, all just having been weaned too. They are living somewhere else: in the bushes, under porches, in garages or sheds, I expect. Yes I could have chosen NOT to feed them but that is not responsible or humane. I am hoping Suzanne and her volunteers can capture them and spay and neuter them, particularly the mothers and put them back in this environment, but that takes the work of experienced volunteers. Suzanne Hart and her team have been providing services here for over four years and have helped over 500 cats. They have Trapped, Neutered and Returned (TNR) over 300 cats since June 1, 2012, alone. They know what they are doing. A novice like me has no idea how to carry this out nor do I have access to all the different kinds of traps they have that do eventually capture the cats they are after. It takes time and patience. I help animals whenever I can, have been for decades as ferals and strays have been in every town I have lived in and somehow many end up on my doorstep.

Some of these towns have SPCAs that do the spay and neuter program. I understand Northumberland SPCA used to but ran out of money. Suzanne and her team of volunteers (foster homes) are stretched to the limit and cannot cope with the burgeoning feral populations that exist here. My rather long-winded letter is asking for council to consider supporting this organization with funding. Quite frankly I would be prepared to pay more taxes to do this. In my humble opinion, I think if council were to ask for input (perhaps using the Trent Hills Communicator) they might get a better idea of how the residents feel about all of this. If the cats are spayed and neutered and put back into their area they will keep other ferals from moving in and will die off eventually. Of course the cycle will continue but at least on a lesser scale. By the way I am not a “cat nut” or “animal activist” just a human being who hates to see these creatures, through no fault of their own, end up trying to survive on the streets and in the backyards … and apparently in the drain pipes under my street. (One was rescued as you probably know.) The organization has a Facebook page and a lot of information is there < CatCareSpayNeuterInitiative>. They also have a web site filled chock full of information at <www.>. I hope council will become fully informed on the situation and take time to look into this. The problem won’t go away it will only get worse. Please consider this as I end my letter with a quote: “The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.” ~ Gandhi (1869-1948) Sincerely Sue Dickens, Campbellford resident

Egypt: worse than a crime

EMC Editorial Two massacres committed by the Egyptian army in one week. At least 130 people killed in the streets of Cairo for protesting against the military coup. is worse than Gwynne Dyer aIt crime (as the French diplomat Talleyrand remarked when Napoleon ordered a particularly counter-productive execution). It is a MISTAKE. It is also a crime, of course. The killing has been deliberate and precise: only trained snipers could produce so many victims who have been shot in the head or the heart. General Abdel Fattah al-Sisi and Adly Mansour, the tame president he has installed, tell the kind of lies that generals and politicians always tell when this sort of thing is going on, but the reports of the journalists on the scene leave no room for doubt: this is murder. But it is, above all, a mistake. When the army fulfilled the demands of the anti-government demonstrators in Tahrir Square on July 3 by overthrowing the elected president, Mohammed Morsi, after only a year in office, it must have known that his supporters in the Muslim Brotherhood would protest in the streets. And it must have had a plan for dealing with those protests. Soldiers always have plans. The simplest plan would be just to wait the protesters out. The Muslim Brotherhood could put large numbers of people on the streets, but at least in Cairo even larger numbers of people would go to Tahrir Square and support the coup. Use minimum force, contain the demonstrations by both sides, and wait for people to get bored and go home. In the meanwhile, push on with the

process of rewriting the constitution to remove the Islamic bits inserted last year by Morsi’s party and hold a new referendum to ratify it. By the time fresh presidential and parliamentary elections are held early next year, the Muslim Brotherhood will presumably have found more modern and moderate leaders to replace Morsi—and in any case the secular parties will win the election. Was this really General Sisi’s scenario for the future when he overthrew Morsi’s government? Perhaps: the army’s moderate behaviour in the first week after the coup could support that hypothesis. But it wouldn’t have taken long for the soldiers to understand that things were unlikely to work according to plan. The problem was not so much the imprisoned president’s refusal to legitimise his overthrow by cooperating with the military, or the tens of thousands of peaceful proMorsi demonstrators camped out in the streets. Morsi’s non-co-operation was predictable and so were the proMorsi crowds, but his supporters were patient and peaceful. Wait another month or so, and most of them would probably go home. In this scenario, the turning point would have come when Sisi or his advisers finally realised that the Muslim Brotherhood could wait it out too. Whatever the intervening process, if the Brotherhood was really free to run again in the promised election next year, it might win again. That would be catastrophic for the army’s very privileged position in Egypt—so the Brotherhood had to be excluded from politics. That is a charitable take on the army’s motives. The likelier explanation, alas, is that Sisi planned to ban the Brotherhood from the start. Democracy be damned: the “deep state,” that permanent collusion between well-fed Egyptian soldiers


A sense of humour is vital

Dear Editor, This is an open letter to my friends in the U.S. In Canada we are beginning to worry that everyone in the USA is a Bible Thumping Republican living in a gated community with a gun at the ready and an Arab living under his bed with the former Russian who never moved out but then we remember that there are many former Canadians like you down there and we are relieved. I hope you still have your sense of humour and are able to get through day by day as I am in my igloo in the Great White North. Jack Knowles, Brighton

and bureaucrats and the foreign military and commercial interests who feed them, is making a comeback. And the political idiots on Tahrir Square are cheering it on. Either way, the army’s political project now requires the massive use of force: the supporters of the Brotherhood must be driven from the streets, by murder if necessary, and its leaders must be criminalised and banned. And other political idiots, in Washington, London and Paris, are going along with that too. President Barack Obama is uncomfortable with what is happening, but he won’t call it a coup because then he would be obliged to cut off $1.5 billion a year in aid to the Egyptian army. Instead, he calls it a “postrevolution transition,” and promises that the United States will be a “strong partner to the Egyptian people as they shape their path to the future.” His loyal sidekick William Hague, the British Foreign Secretary (also known as “Tonto”), asks the Egyptian authorities politely to refrain from violence because “now is the time for dialogue, not confrontation.” ’Fraid not. Now is the time for murder, and foreign democrats are holding the murderer’s coat. Egypt is the biggest Arab country by far, and so long as the democratic revolution prospered in Egypt you could still say that the “Arab Spring” was changing things for the better, even despite the calamity in Syria. But it’s very hard to see how the Egyptians can find their way back from where they are now. Even worse, the Egyptian coup is stark proof that political Islam cannot succeed by taking the democratic path. The message it conveys to devout Islamists all over the Arab world is that Osama bin Laden was right: only by violence can their political project succeed. Thanks a bunch, General Sisi.

Green Acres for real By Lewis Zandbergen

EMC Editorial - Moving to the country has meant quite a few adjustments for Denise and me. For one, there’s the coming to terms with the wildlife; no I’m not talking about neighbours and their partying—real animal-type wildlife. Most has been a jaw-dropping discovery of the abundance of critters all around us. We’ve been actively seeking out the creatures of the wild as well, just from the car windows you understand; I’m not going out into the brush looking. Probably the most pleasurable was watching a female turkey and her brood of 12 poults navigating the tall grass around our house. She’d spot us peeking from a window and hightail it for cover, sit herself down and utter her adult hen assembly call (that’s the fancy avian aficionado term for it). Twelve little “cheepers” would scramble over stones, clumps of dirt, thriving weeds and grass tufts just a tad higher than they were, trying to get to her and the perceived safety she provided. According to a couple of people, if as few as a couple of the poults survive to adulthood it would be a miracle; foxes, raccoons and other animals savouring tender young turkey meat take their toll. However, just recently we spotted an entire family (or two) of turkeys in the field next door; lots of youngsters included. In our meanderings through the countryside around us we’ve spotted deer, raccoons, grouse and lots of farm animals; cows and horses are abundant in the Stirling area as well, but not to the extent they are north of seven. Then there are the water restrictions— self-imposed of course. It’s not easy convincing our city relatives to use our well water sparingly and to flush only if completely necessary, if you get my drift. And apart from the prolonged power outage a few months ago during an ice storm, we haven’t suffered too much from the country “inconveniences” people warned us about once we’d told them we were headed up north. Encounters with obstinate wildlife have been few and far between unless you count a bat in the basement, another in an upstairs hall and raccoons tipping blue box contents all over the yard. The neighbours’ cattle pretty well keep to themselves and their lowing can be quite soothing drifting in the open windows. We did spot a black bear on one drive but I can’t see them coming too close to our house without us knowing; but that’s what we used to say in Stirling too. Of course, we’ve had to contend with a few annoyances since we’ve moved in but nothing homeowners don’t come

across anyway. The ice storm back in April overloaded the branches of an old Manitoba maple (when speaking of Manitoba maples, old is a relative term; a 20-year-old Manitoba maple will be much larger than a similar age oak or hard maple). The maple dropped a huge branch on our front lawn; it took a day or two to clean that up. The tree doesn’t suspect a thing yet but it too is headed for that boundless forest in the sky. The leprous weeping willow in the side yard disintegrates a little every day even in good weather; large chunks fall onto the yard on a regular basis. I’ve always wanted a weeping willow, but now I know why my dad was so set against ever having one. Speaking of wildlife, our Yorkies, Charlie and Sophie, are having a field day in their new digs. There are tons of things to bark at and they never miss an opportunity to get outside to put the various wildlife in its place: one neighbourhood chipmunk has the audacity to zip by within a few feet of the ends of their leashes; there’s a butterfly that has the nerve to land on their favourite bush; a black squirrel taunts them from high atop that ancient weeping willow; there’s a rascally rabbit hippity hopping across the garden, and then there are those aforementioned placid bovines which must be put in their place; Charlie and Sophie are sure those four-legged pasture pacers are quietly plotting to take over the world. When we lived in Stirling it was a two-minute walk across the street to the “super mail box”; it’s still a two-minute walk to our rural mailbox but there’s no guesswork now—you can tell from our front window whether or not the delivery person has stopped by—the red flag will be up. Of course, convincing a long-time city girl to be sure to put that flag down after she retrieves the mail is another chore altogether. Denise is, of course, in her gardening glory; she has an acre to plant stuff on—I have almost an acre of grass to keep in check. The home’s previous owners generously planted gardens everywhere and Denise is having fun trying to identify every plant. She’s put her own stamp on a few gardens and has plans to develop them in a more orderly fashion, but this year she’s just letting them grow wild. And what we first supposed was nothing more than weeds have turned out to possibly be “heritage plants”; but how do we tell? Nope, country life suits us to a T; great neighbours, peace and quiet, country air. If only Oliver and Lisa had found as much, they’d still be on Green Acres. (Google it.)

Model T-Ford a dream come true for vintage Ford fan

EMC News - Trenton - A car show at Centennial Park on Sunday was just the opportunity for new “old car” owner Steve Pape to show off his 1916 Model-T Ford. “I just bought it in March,” he said. “I wanted a Model-T for 35 years!” Steve now has grandchildren that love to ride in the vintage car. He tells his older grandkids he got it as “a chick magnet” to see how many grandmothers he could pick up. “We were at the Frankford Riverfest and I was talking to some friends who just happened to be grandmothers and they all jumped in the back seat,” he said with a laugh. “My grandson said, ‘Hey grandpa, the chick magnet is working!’” Steve is restoring a couple of other cars at home but the Model-T came ready to go. He bought it in Bancroft from an 80-year-old man who did all the work. “All I had to do was drive it and put scratches on it,” he said. He says the Model-T was so popular in its day that you can still get car parts for it from suppliers in Niagara Falls. “The touring car was the most popular style,” he said. “Back then the annual wage was about $500 and the new Model-T cost $440. Then they dropped the price.” “Ford wanted to get the car out to the average man,” he adds. Steve says most people have a “dream car” they always wanted and this one is his. “Not many people reminisce about a 1916 car,” he says. “We had it at the Trent Valley Lodge one day and even the residents there could barely remember it!” The first cars were all black, because it was the cheapest paint, but in 1927 they came out with colours. The tires are rubber with wooden spokes. It has a four-cylinder, 177-cubic-inch, engine, two-speed manual transmission, and goes up to 35 miles per hour. “I had it up to 42, but it wanders,” he said. There are electric headlights in the front, powered by the engine, along with the horn. The lights in the back are powered by kerosene in a jar at the front. It has an electric starter. The last Model-T was built in 1927 but they still made engines up until World War II. “It’s very unique at car shows,” Steve says. “It gets a lot of attention.” He just got back from a car show at Roseneath. Meanwhile, other cars in Centennial Park Sunday evening were part of the Quinte Access Show and Shine, accompanied by a barbecue and the sounds of the 8 Wing Concert Band

at the amphitheatre. Manager Nadyne Mattis said they will have the car shows here throughout the summer because of construction along Front

Street. The only exception is August 4 which is reserved for the Classic County Music Reunion. A special parade will be held on August 18.

An open letter to all Canadians Bell Canada is taking the unusual step of writing to all Canadians today. As the nation’s longest-serving telecommunications company, established shortly after Confederation in 1880, we would like to ensure Canadians clearly understand a critical situation impacting their world-leading wireless industry. Verizon Communications, a $120-billion US telecommunications giant with 100 million wireless customers, is considering entering the Canadian market. A company of this scale certainly doesn’t need handouts from Canadians or special regulatory advantages over Canadian companies. But that is exactly what they get in the new federal wireless regulations. Bell welcomes any competitor, but they should compete on a level playing field. Fair competition is something Canadians demand and something Bell expects too after 133 years of investment in delivering world-class communications services to Canadians.

Unintended advantages for American giants: How we got here The federal government has recently taken an activist role in regulating Canada’s wireless industry. That includes giving various benefits to small startup wireless competitors. With Ottawa’s help, the new companies have become part of the vigorously competitive Canadian wireless marketplace. But the government inadvertently left holes in the wireless rules that would give big US corporations the same extraordinary advantages as the small startups. And all Canadians are on the hook to pay. Verizon has said it’s looking at taking advantage of this unique opportunity. We do not believe a US company 4x the size of Canada’s entire wireless industry combined requires special help from Canada. It’s profoundly unfair to all Canadians, and Ottawa needs to close the loopholes.

3 loopholes in the rules Under federal regulations originally designed for startup competitors, Verizon would actually get these benefits… 1. Verizon would be able to buy twice as much of Canada’s airwaves as Canadian companies like Bell can in an upcoming auction of wireless spectrum – the airwaves that carry your calls and data. These airwaves are a public resource, and access to them is critical to providing you with world-leading wireless services. When Ottawa auctions off Canada’s airwaves for use by telecommunications companies, it gets significant revenues. These are public funds. It is inappropriate for our own government to essentially reserve a public resource for a company like Verizon to the detriment of Canadian companies. In doing so, the government will also reduce federal auction revenue significantly – by potentially hundreds of millions of dollars. A loophole that gives US companies access to twice as much of our airwaves and at a lower cost is an unfair advantage, paid for by Canadians. 2. They get to piggyback on the networks of Canadian carriers wherever they don’t want to invest and build their own. Under the rules, Verizon would have the right to offer wireless service using the advanced networks funded by Canadian companies and built by Canadian workers. Industry experts say a Verizon wouldn’t need to build its own network throughout Canada, invest in Canada’s rural communities, or support Canadian jobs like Canadian wireless companies do. Instead, they would concentrate on a few big urban centres, forcing Canadian carriers to do the same while potentially cutting jobs and slashing costs in order to compete. 3. Verizon can acquire smaller Canadian competitors – but Bell and other Canadian wireless companies can’t even try. American players like Verizon can buy up new Canadian wireless companies like Wind Mobile and Mobilicity at cut-rate prices – including their existing spectrum holdings previously subsidized by Canadian taxpayers. Yet Canadian carriers like Bell are restricted from competing to acquire these Canadian startups, even if the new companies want it to happen. That means Verizon gets them for below-market value. What did Ottawa get from the United States in return for this unprecedented access to Canada? Nothing. No reciprocity in the US for Canadian companies. In fact, can you even imagine Canadian wireless companies getting preferred access to New York, Los Angeles or Chicago?

3 straightforward ways to close the loopholes The Bell team is ready to compete with anyone for your business on a level playing field. But big US companies taking advantage of rules designed to help Canadian startups is just not on the level. To get wireless policy back on track, we propose that… 1. Canadian wireless carriers should be able to bid for the same amount of Canada’s airwaves as Americans can. 2. US operators entering Canada should roll out wireless service across the country, just as Canadian companies have. 3. If a small Canadian wireless company seeks a buyer, Canadian carriers should be allowed to bid, just as the Americans can. US giants don’t need special help from the Canadian government, and Canadians shouldn’t have to pay their way into the country. Instead, let’s give Canada’s own communications companies a fair chance to compete with them. Sincerely,

George Cope, President and CEO, Bell Canada and BCE

We’re not the only ones concerned “Why would Ottawa create a policy environment that favours a U.S. telecom giant and deliberately trashes the shareholders of the major Canadian wireless players?” Terence Corcoran, Financial Post, June 27, 2013

“But there is no basis for the Commission to give certain large companies a regulatory hand-out… so they can acquire spectrum… at a substantial discount over the price that would otherwise be received.” Verizon, Regulatory filing to the FCC on U.S. Incentive Auctions, March 12, 2013

“In fact a report published last week commissioned by the CRTC suggested a similar conclusion (that wireless prices have come down meaningfully since 2008) – so we’re not entirely sure where Industry Canada is getting its data about the market not being competitive. Then again, the government wouldn’t let a little data get in the way of a good lever for getting votes, and that’s clearly what is going on here.” Bob Bek, CIBC World Markets, July 12, 2013

“The perception that Canadian prices are high relative to other jurisdictions has been seized upon by the government as an invitation to intervene and deliver lower prices. But the perception is false and the invitation is illogical.” Dr. Jeffrey Church and Andrew Wilkins of the University of Calgary, The Globe and Mail, July 8, 2013

“…the federal government’s anything-goes market interventions to support a fourth carrier have so gerrymandered the rules to favour Verizon sweeping in that any investor seriously interested in buying shares in Canadian telecom companies should be spooked.” Sean Silcoff, The Globe and Mail, June 27, 2013

“This will mean significant layoffs which could easily trump the hiring to be done by Verizon, which besides a needed presence in retail outlets, should be able to initially handle a lot of functions (marketing, billing) from the United States.” Adam Shine, National Bank Financial, June 26, 2013

“Unlike the national incumbents in Canada, we wonder if Verizon has a strategy for wireless broadband in rural markets, a key political consideration for the current Conservative Government.” Dvai Ghose, Canaccord Genuity, July 2, 2013

Cyclists causing traffic hazzards EMC News - Northumberland - Motorists are telling police cyclists are not abiding by the rules of the road under the Ontario Highway Traffic Act and they’re causing traffic hazards. Northumberland OPP have responded to numerous calls about riders behaving badly by issuing a news release reminding mo-

torists and cyclists to share the road and obey two rules that apply to both groups: slower traffic stays right, and must give right of way to faster traffic when safe and practical. Riding a bicycle on the highway can only be done safely “when all traffic uses the same rules of the road,” police said. That makes for predictable behaviour

bold and bright when entering the amicable competition. If you have been considering a justification for digging out those favourite festive lights a little early, you now have an excuse, VIVA Tweed! “With a Vegas theme set for the August 23 to 25 Elvis Festival, the Municipality of Tweed wants to reinforce the concept of turning our downtown (and beyond) into a village of lights for the month of August. Having storefronts and windows radiant like Vegas bears a welcoming environment as people venture into our small community. If we can snap the attention of evening motorists, we have established a unique association that can be assured to bring them back to our community. “Neither the Task Team nor the Chamber want to generate an expectation that all windows must be lit up every night in the week in August. The two groups still want to see the wonderful and creative displays as in the past, Elvis cutouts, photos, Las Vegas themes, and bright colours. The variation this year is that in order to incorporate the Vegas principle we must bear the trademark lights. Vegas wouldn’t be the same without its colourful skyline, and VIVA Tweed cannot reach its full potential without your local support. Judging of the windows will be one week prior to the Festival, and the prizes are always well worth the effort! “The Municipality of Tweed encourages everyone to support these groups in our community and light up your windows for VIVA Tweed.

Where everyone is Welcome

EMC News - Tweed - This year’s theme for the Tweed Tribute to Elvis Festival is Viva Tweed celebrating the years Elvis spent performing in Las Vegas. His first performance was 1956 in Vegas at the New Frontier Hotel. After that Elvis made several appearances in Vegas over the years and performed every year from 1969 to 1976. Luc Wales has been temporarily filling the position of economic development officer for the Municipality of Tweed since Joey Walsh resigned and sent the following information out for publication. “The Municipality of The Tweed Tribute to Elvis Festival committee held their first annual golf tournament at Poplars Golf Course with 24 players involved. The winners are Robin Smith, who organized Tweed is committed to supthe event, Kristen and Dan Smith from Ottawa and Tony Wilke from London. Photo: Scott Pettigrew porting festivals and events that usher tourists to our beautiful region of Ontario. This year the Tweed Tribute to Elvis Festival will be celebrating three years of success, paying homage to the legendary King of Rock ’n’ Roll, Elvis Presley. “In the summer of 2012 a group of residents assembled the Downtown Task Team to promote events, businesses, contests, and everything entertaining that encompasses the Elvis festivities. One of the tasks was the encouragement of an annual windowdecorating contest, which has since become a beloved viewing by tourists and residents alike in the downtown and beyond. “This August the window display contest has been taken to the next level by the Downtown Task Team and the Tweed and Area Chamber of Commerce. The two groups in conjunction with the Elvis theme ‘Viva Tweed,’ have challenged residents and businesses to think

History Weekend at Presqu’ile Provincial Park

EMC Events - Brighton - Presqu’ile Provincial Park, home of the Presqu’ile Lighthouse, a historic landmark for Brighton and Northumberland County, is ready to celebrate History Weekend: August 2 until 4. Before becoming a park in 1922, the Presqu’ile peninsula was used by many different groups of people: soldiers during the War of 1812, rumrunners during prohibition, pioneers, ship builders, pirates and cottagers. It was even destined to become

an important city in Upper Canada before the sinking of the schooner Speedy. Now you can relive Presqu’ile’s storied past by participating in the many fun events offered throughout History Weekend. On Friday, August 2, at 10 a.m. it will be a chance for the kids to see what pioneer games were all about. Bring the family out on Saturday, August 3, and enjoy a War of 1812 mini-muster program and come join a guided tour around our famous lighthouse. Experience

a 1900s picnic, with all the traditional field games: three-legged, sack and wheelbarrow races, egg toss and tug of war. Get ready for the regatta on Sunday and make your very own boat. On Saturday evening Presqu’ile relives the dancing era—all of them—the Charleston and Lindy Hop to Ganga; get your dancing shoes on. In addition, the Friends of Presqu’ile will once again be putting on a social barbecue at 11 a.m. Sunday, August 4, starts out with a bang

when the 1812 re-enactors repel an American raid at 11 a.m. Get that boat you built Saturday and join in the Calathumpian parade down to the site of our 2013 edition of the Presqu’ile Regatta. You can’t miss what is planned for Sunday night. Starting at 7:45 p.m., Brighton’s own Peter Solmes will serenade the crowd with songs of Presqu’ile Park. At 8:30 p.m.


The sights and sounds of summer By Steve Jessel

EMC News - Belleville - Gentle summer breezes will be complemented by the sweet refrains of live folk music this August, and with several vendor spaces remaining there’s still an opportunity for local craftspeople to get involved with the annual Gleaner’s Food Bank Garden and Craft Sale. “Everybody seems to enjoy it, we try to appeal to everyone,” Gleaners director of operations Susanne Quinlan said. “Even if people just want to stop by and enjoy the folk music and enjoy the garden, they can do that.” Taking place this year on August 25 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at 25 Wallbridge Crescent in Belleville, the Garden and Craft Fair is expected to host some 40 vendors featuring a wide range of locally handcrafted goods. Along with the vendors, the fair also features a $1 Back to School Sale, where items for schoolage children such as shoes and clothing can be purchased for just $1 ahead of the ever-approaching school year. “We do it for many reasons, the backto-school dollar sale is for our clients so that they can have something new for their children going back to school,” Quinlan said. “We do it for the vendors because we believe in helping as much as possible the local economy.” Quinlan said she expects a wide

variety of crafts on display this year, from jewellery to hand-made candles, and proceeds from the event help to cover ongoing costs at the food bank. In 2012, Gleaners spent over $75,000 on food, distributing more than 8,000 hampers to needy families in the region. “[Events like these] are very important; our numbers are up about

12 per cent,” Quinlan said. “We’re purchasing quite a bit of food.” Vendor spaces are still available and cost just $25. The event will also feature live music and a barbecue. To find out more, phone Gleaners at 613-962-9043. “It’s not a multi-thousand dollar event, but we’ve really loved it, and it’s really unique,” Quinlan said.

there is the haunting Ghost Walk; join us as we delve into the history of Presqu’ile and talk to those that were actually there!

Motorists complain which drivers can anticipate and deal with in a safe manner. Large groups of cyclists must also break into smaller groups of four to six members and keep about a kilometre between them to allow traffic to pass. When walking a bike on a highway where there is no sidewalk, the cyclist is considered a pedestrian and must walk on the left side of the road facing traffic, police said. Other Highway Traffic Act rules require cyclists to: • Be visible by wearing brightly coloured clothes and helmet. Every cyclist under age 18 must wear an approved bicycle helmet. Parents of guardians shall not knowingly permit a cyclist under 16 to ride without a helmet. • Equip bikes with white lights and a red rear light or reflector if you ride between a half-hour before sunset and a half-hour after sunrise. • Attach white reflective tape on the front forks and red reflective tape on the rear forks. • Make sure the bike’s bell or horn is in good working order.

Living books recall wartime horrors By Ray Yurkowski

EMC News - Brighton - Everyone has a story to tell and, last weekend at The Gates gallery, a full-house audience was hanging on every word of a tale of survival in Poland through World War II. “Our Life Stories” featured a first-person account from Brighton residents Harriet and Walter Aksamit, who not only survived but also found each other and fell in love in Scotland. Together, they immigrated to make their first home together in Chicago and eventually found their way to Brighton. It’s a wonder the couple found each other at all. Harriett tells her story of the family home constantly raided and her father terrorized by threats from the Russian death squad. Her family was loaded onto cattle trains and sent to Siberia. As the war raged on, she would be moved from Chelyabinsk in the Ural Mountains to Kazakhstan, to Persia, to Tehran, to India, to North and South Rhodesia; finally reuniting again as a whole family in Scotland. Meanwhile, Walter’s family was raided by the German army. Young Polish men were being forced into service under the threat of death or imprisonment and in March 1943, Walter was taken to Germany to be trained in metallurgy and welding to work Living books, Harriet and Walter Aksamit, told their story of survival through World War II on the weekend at The Gates gallery. 12-hour shifts building bombs Photo: Ray Yurkowski while surviving on one loaf of

bread per week. Later, he was moved to Occupied France. When the Allied Forces landed in Normandy, he escaped, followed a crew of American soldiers and joined a small Polish division that was fighting in France. When they got to Paris the troop was sent for training in Scotland. Before the training ended, the war was over. “It’s been awhile,” says Harriet. “We went through a living hell but I try not to think about it.”

“After what we went through, you could be so depressed your mind will never go back to being normal.” But one thing remains etched in her memory: every night before bedtime, she looks out the window. It’s a reminder of the time when her family’s home was burned to the ground. “Someone opened the window to wake us up,” she said. “Otherwise we would have burned. It’s the only thing I have left over.” But, Harriet prefers to think about “the better part of life.” “After what we went through, you could be so depressed your mind will never go back to be-

ing normal,” she said. “The Russians had a saying, ‘Don’t worry, if you can’t get used to it, you’ll die.’” The production was about a year in the making and it all started with Harriet telling local historian and Brighton Arts Council (BAC) member Florence Chatten, “I have a story for you.” When she heard the story, Chatten thought, “People should hear this.” The weekend presentation marked the third human-book allocution the BAC has had a hand in presenting. The human book or living library concept started about a decade ago in Denmark. Organizers say it came about to help people understand each other better, one conversation at a time. The idea has proven to be very popular across Europe, Australia and North America. Several libraries in Canada have established programs with patrons able to “check out” living books to share their experiences with groups, service clubs and individuals. As testament to the proceedings last weekend, it took only seconds before kudos started popping up on the Internet with rave reviews posted on Facebook and Twitter. “Part of it is their excitement,” Chatten offered as why the event was so successful. “They wanted everybody to hear their story. It’s unusual and it’s wonderful.”

Driftwood’s Odyssey sets sail for local parks By Bill Freeman

EMC Entertainment Regional - Driftwood Theatre’s acclaimed touring bus will pull into local parks over the next week and unravel a tale of Homeric might. In its nineteenth season, the award-winning theatre company will take audience members on the “greatest journey of love, adventure and the search for home ever told” as it presents Winnipeg playwright Rick Chafe’s highly regarded adaptation of The Odyssey. The company performs in Marmora at Memorial Park August, 3, at the Peterbor-

ough Museum’s Heritage Pavilion August 4, August 6 at Zwicks Park in Belleville and August 7 at Centre Hastings Park in Madoc. All shows, rain or shine, start at 7:30 p.m. with alternative sites if the weather turns inclement. In Marmora the backup location is the arena, in Belleville it is the Zwicks Pavilion and in Madoc the rain site is Arts Centre Hastings. “Twenty mortal years Odysseus.

Trent Hills solicitor to meet with Parks Canada over power rights dispute EMC News - Trent Hills - The municipality and Parks Canada hope to head off a court battle over money Trent Hills is owed for power rights it acquired in perpetuity back in 1978. CAO Mike Rutter said Tuesday the legal firm handling the matter for Trent Hills, Weir and Foulds, has held off filing a statement of claim pending a meeting with Parks Canada representatives scheduled for late August. “Everything we’re hearing is that there is a motivation to resolve the issue, there’s an acceptance that it needs to be dealt with right away,” Rutter said. “This meeting should be a good start to that.” A statement of claim has been prepared demanding the federal government pay almost $1.55 million plus interest for failing to provide Trent Hills with free electricity as required under an agreement dating to 1914. The right to receive a small amount of power at no charge forever, currently worth about

$60,000 a year, was originally granted to a woollen mill the town of Campbellford acquired pre-amalgamation in 1978. The town’s right was upheld by the Federal Court but the federal government has failed to supply the electricity since 2002, although it did make an “interim payment” of $182,592. Northumberland-Quinte West MP Rick Norlock released a statement by Parks Canada July 9 saying the federal agency “is in the process of developing a negotiation strategy” that could include a onetime lump sum payment of $9 million to secure a “full and final release … of its current and future obligations to the municipality.” Norlock said Parks Canada asked that the municipality hold off “entering into any kind of legal procedure” until it could provide an “update” on its strategy. Rutter said the municipality has not received any notice of an offer being made. “I suspect that conversation will happen in the meeting,” he

When patients experience tooth loss, their dentist will likely discuss different treatment options to replace their missing teeth. When it comes to replacement options, there are essentially two groups that all replacement options fall into: removable and fixed. Today we will focus our discussion on removable prostheses. Removable prostheses, such as complete and partial dentures have only one main advantage: cost. Because the initial costs of removable appliances are relatively less expensive compared to fixed options, many patients opt for prostheses such as partial dentures or complete dentures when deciding on how to replace their missing teeth. Unfortunately, there are many disadvantages of using a removable prosthesis to replace natural teeth: Biting forces are decreased. • The bite force decreases from 200 PSI to 50 PSI for partial denture wearers • Denture wearers that have worn their dentures for 15 or more years will have a reduced bite force of only

6 PSI. Chewing efficiency is decreased. • Patients with dentures have 97% less chewing efficiency compared to patients with a full set of natural teeth Digestive disorders may develop. • Often times these conditions require the use of medications to treat them. One’s life span may be decreased • Food selection is limited, thereby decreasing healthy food intake. This can lead to poor nutrition Partial dentures can apply excessive and damaging forces to the remaining natural teeth • This can lead to further tooth loss Negative psychological effects related to complete and partial dentures Given the many negative effects of using removable prostheses to replace missing natural teeth, it is hard to imagine that complete or partial dentures are a TRUE replacement for teeth. Thankfully, with the introduction of dental implants, these effects are greatly reduced and often minimized. Replacement of missing teeth can be a lot more predictable and comfortable with dental implants. To learn more about your options, talk to your dentist about dental implants and the benefits they can provide to you.

Cruising on Banff National Park’s largest lake By John M. Smith

out of the canoe and into a watery grave! Another story goes that many believed this area was a “Spirit Gateway,” and faces could sometimes be seen in the rocks along the shoreline. As we cruised along, our guide drew our attention to points of interest, such as the names of some of the distant mountain peaks, the varieties of trees and vegetation, a controlled forest fire area, the natural springs and the seasonal waterfalls. He also helped us look for wildlife, for this area is home to deer, bighorn sheep, elk, bear, osprey and the bald eagle (among others). He told us about a forest fire lookout person who got somewhat bored doing his same job in this same area for 17 seasons, so he’d tried to “spice things up” by placing a large salt block right outside his forest cabin to attract bighorn sheep. His thought was that he’d eventually be able to look right out through his window and see this wildlife—and he was right. However, he also attracted grizzly bear

and cougar that were looking for prey! He even had a cougar sit atop his roof, in waiting! Well, as the poet Robert Burns once said (sort of), “the best laid plans of mice and men often go astray.” A log hotel, named “Beach House”, was built here in the late 1800s, and a summer village called “Minnewanka Landing” was established in the early 1900s with streets, hotels, restaurants, and lake tours. Man-made dams were built in 1912 and again in 1941 to enlarge the lake, improve the boggy shoreline, and supply Banff with hydro-electric power. The latter dam submerged the first dam, bridge pilings, and the entire resort village! Therefore, this is a popular scuba-diving area now, for it’s the only way to see Minnewanka Landing anymore. Minnewanka Lake is 28 kilometres (17 miles) long, two kilometres (one mile) wide, and 142 metres (466 feet) deep, so you’d expect to find some good fishing here. There may or may not be an actual lake monster here, A section of the lake and the mountains.

but there are some monstersized fish, including lake trout and whitefish. This lake is said to be “one of the top ten lake trout fisheries in Canada,” and there are, of course, opportunities for guided fishing excursions. One of the stories I was told while cruising was of the 47-pound trout that was caught here, and it was caught by a woman who was basically not even interested in fishing. She had been coerced into going fishing with her husband. After the boat cruise was completed, I found a hiking and biking trail that runs along the northern shore of the lake, passing Stewart Canyon and six backcountry campsites. I also drove around the Minnewanka I meet some bighorned sheep along the roadside, Loop Road, where I stopped near the lake. to see a ghost town, Bank-


EMC Lifestyles - On my most recent visit to Banff, I drove to nearby Lake Minnewanka, a glacial lake located in the eastern part of Banff National Park, and here I took a cruise on the park’s largest lake. I found this guided lake tour was a great way to learn more about the area’s history, geology, and native folklore. It’s believed aboriginal people have camped and hunted along the shores of Lake Minnewanka for thousands of years, and several old stone tools and spearheads have been found in this area to help confirm this. The Stoney People eventually named it “Minnwaki,” the “Lake of the Water Spirits,” for the lake was both respected and feared for its resident spirits; early Europeans called it “Devil Lake.” Some believed there was a lake monster that didn’t like singing, for our guide told us about the legend of the singing natives who were paddling along, were suddenly grabbed by their ankles and dragged

The boat cruise goes every hour on the hour during the summer, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and it costs $45 (adult) and $20 (child of six and above).

Monster trucks thrill the fans at the Speedway great race that has become the norm for that division in 2013 but the surprise was rookie #07 Curtis King avoiding a couple of early cautions and going on to lead the first 20 laps of the 25-lap event. It looked like King was destined for his first-ever feature win as he fought hard to hold the #11 Dan Ferguson and last week’s winner #87 Andrew Hennessy at bay. On the 21st lap King encountered a lapped vehicle and Hennessy who was already working the outside made his way around and into the top spot. Hennessy was able to hold on for the final four circuits and take home his second win in as many weeks as he tries to chase down the point leader #33 Ryan Scott. King finished with a career best second place while #11 Dan Fergusson rounded out the

Number 72 Doug Anderson has pretty much dominated this division all season but with a season high car count of 18 cars Anderson had his work cut out for him. By lap 12 of the 20-lap event Anderson still had not cracked the top 5. Number 03 Justin Ramsay had made his way around #23 Rob Perry and #83 of Jay O’Hara and while Perry and O’Hara faded guys like #26 Bob Green and #53 Wade Purchase were moving forward and battling with Ramsay.

Purchase moved to the high side to clear the track but during his exit Anderson got slowed down behind him leaving it looking like Ramsay’s show with two to go. However, Anderson can never be counted out and Ramsay was slowed by a lapped car coming to the white flag opening the door for Anderson going into turns one and two for the final time.

EMC Sports - Brighton Despite overcast skies anxious fans filled the stands at Brighton Speedway on Saturday night as Deerhaven Farm and Garden presented the Adecco Summer Smash event. This is the second year the Speedway has highlighted the Monster Trucks “Aftershock” and “Krazy Train” and fans of all ages loved the car smashing high flying event! The Bill’s Johns Comp 4 division was the first feature of the night and current point leader Tom Vance started up front owing to his misfortune of mechanical issues last week. Vance was able to overcome that one bad week and return to his winning ways in his #43 Honda Prelude. Behind Vance were #19 of Rob Murrell and #31 who this week had Rob Brooks substituting for Jeff Howard. Vanderlaan’s Building Supplies Late Models hit the track next and it was Pole Sitter #97 David MacDonald who led the first eight circuits when a caution came out. On the restart second in points #5 Steve Baldwin made his way around MacDonald for the lead but it was #29 of Phil Potts who fell as far back as seventh place before he started his march to the front. Potts started his way to the front and it took him until Lap 27 of the 30-lap feature when he got a nose under Baldwin just enough to get Baldwin out of shape and make the pass for the lead. Baldwin tried to get Potts back but to no avail as Phil Potts and the Foul Mood racing team returned to victory lane for the first time this season and the first time in almost a year.

Wally Dever hosts 4-on-4 tournament EMC Sports - Making ice in the summer is not an easy process, but the city staff at the Wally Dever were ready to handle it. This past weekend the Quinte Area 4-on-4 Hockey League put on a one-day tournament and it was a success. With temperatures outside being warm and humid, moms, dads, grandparents and friends were able to watch young athletes born in 2003 and 2004 play hockey in the chilly confines of the Wally Dever of what may become an annual “Beat the Heat” summer tournament. Teams were put together by local coaches who recruited kids from Belleville, Quinte West, Brighton,

Stirling, Napanee and Clarington. Four teams participated in the inaugural fun day: Casey’s Crew, Mac’s Bullies, White Knights and an all-girl team named the Red Hot Chili Peppers. We had young ladies playing on three of the four teams that participated in this recreational tournament which was put together to get the kids on the ice and have some fun before they start with their own teams for the 2013-2014 season. Teams had their own dressing room for the day so parents could bring in snacks and drinks and pizza from Metro’s Fresh To Go was brought in after their second game. With 4-on-4 play creating such

open ice and defence getting caught up in the offensive play quite often, some of these remarkable young goalies faced 40 plus shots in each game. Not all of the players participating had even played 4-on-4 hockey before and not all of them have played rep hockey, so the new experience was a surprise. The idea of the tournament was for friends to play together and have some fun in the rink and maybe go out for dinner or have a barbecue afterward. The “B” finals had Mac’s Bullies defeating Casey’s Crew, while in the “A” finals the White Knights defeated the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Taking charge of the first game early the Comets ended up trouncing Cavan in a 6 - 0 game. Goal scorers for the Comets where Jack Prophet, Nathan Woods with two, Keenun Elrafin, James Cameron and

Joey Long. Coming up against Cumberland Price at 4 p.m. the boys played hard to a 4 - 0 loss. Sunday morning the boys were up against Cumberland. As this game started the boys pulled all the stops out and played to a 3 - 3 tie. Net stretchers for the Comets were Ryan Bakker for two goals and Jack Prophet with a beautiful break away goal. With their 1-1-1 stats they made it to the semi-final

games. The Comets played a great game against Cumberland Price again, taking a 4 - 0 loss to knock them out of the running for the cup. All

team members put a great effort into the tournament play, as coaches and parents are very proud of their Maxwell Paper Comets.

Bringing home the title By Steve Jessel

EMC Sports - Belleville - It’s been nearly a month since Belleville bodybuilder Jesse LeBlanc took home the middleweight title at the CBBF Canadian Bodybuilding Championships in Halifax, but LeBlanc says he still has trouble wrapping his head around it. “It doesn’t actually feel like it’s sunk in yet,” Leblanc said. “It feels pretty surreal.” The 26-year-old LeBlanc has been bodybuilding for only roughly four years, making his accomplishment all the more impressive. A former Loyalist College volleyball player, LeBlanc said he’s always had a passion for sports and fitness, stretching all the way back to high school where he said he played “pretty much everything he could.” LeBlanc said after leaving college he was searching for a new sport to become involved with,

and when a friend introduced him to fitness shows he was hooked. After doing amateur fitness shows in 2006 and 2007, LeBlanc made the shift to powerlifting and bodybuilding around 2009, and hasn’t looked back since. “Genetically, I’ve always been told I have the physique for it,” LeBlanc said. “It was really natural; I didn’t really have to put a whole lot of effort into it. I just enjoy going to the gym because I always liked training.” That being said, LeBlanc admits the physicality and commitment required for body building is hard to match in other sports. In preparation for a competition, LeBlanc, a personal trainer at The Right Fit in Belleville, trains six days a week, spending roughly three hours in the gym each day, splitting his time between cardio workouts and general strength training. When he’s not in

the gym, LeBlanc eats a high protein diet of six meals a day. “You’re living in the gym, and then when you’re home you’re living in the kitchen,” LeBlanc said. Since LeBlanc is an avid fitness enthusiast in his own personal life, he said the actual workouts are the easiest part for him. What challenges LeBlanc is the mental side of bodybuilding, and finding the motivation to spend so much time in the gym almost every day. “It’s totally different [than other sports], because for me it’s more of a mental thing,” LeBlanc said. “Being able to go into the gym when you don’t want to … you just drag yourself there. Once you’re through the door, it’s not bad, it’s just getting through the door is the hardest part. Once you’re there you kick into gear.” As competition draws closer, the diet becomes more focused on

bringing his body fat percentage down as low as possible. The final week before a show LeBlanc rotates between water loading, water depleting, and carbohydrate loading, all in an effort to look as taut and muscular as possible at show time. “Bodybuilding; it’s not like a hobby, it’s got to be more of a lifestyle, because a lot of the work is done outside of the gym,” he explained. Looking ahead to the future, LeBlanc said he plans to continue to powerlift and do bodybuilding shows over the coming years, although he’s still in the process of figuring out his game plan. In any case, LeBlanc credits his girlfriend Lucy for helping him achieve his goals and supporting him along the way. “She pretty much worked out with me every day,” LeBlanc said. “She helped a lot.”

Picturing the past at O’Hara Mill on Heritage Day By Diane Sherman

EMC Events - Madoc Township - In 1820 only 20 acres of land were cleared for crops in Madoc Township. It was shortly after that the O’Hara family arrived. Sunday, July 28, was annual Heritage Day at the O’Hara Mill Homestead and Conservation area. Over twenty different demonstrations of early settlement lifestyle were presented by area residents. A new food booth near the visitor’s centre was busy serving visitors with barbecued goodies while children played old-fashioned games. In addition, a small store has been opened in the rear of the 1915 residence which opens into kitchen gardens adjacent to the house. Visitors were invited to reap some of the mid-summer harvest and witness the field being plowed with a horse drawn plow. Chris Budd, from the hamlet of Cooper, gave horse-drawn wagon rides along the logging road behind the log cabin on the hill where the family first lived. Inside the cabin Lorene and Ian Sinclair prepared a full course meal in the hearth, their work lit only by the fire and kerosene lanterns with a bit of light from the windows. By 1860 the population reached 3,950 residents, almost double the current population of 2013. When gold was discovered in Eldorado in 1867, the population briefly doubled. O’Hara’s mill was a primary service to residents during those early days to mill wood and grains. Reconstruction of the early settlement has been a labour of enjoyment for the many members of O’Hara Mill Volunteer Association <>. A concluding success to the day was the attachment of the last spoke wheel to the giant rock and stump puller. Wheelwright Bill Doyle finished the wheel earlier in the day and by closing time it had been installed on the huge device. Kim Hadwen hitched his team of Belgian horses to it and a successful rock lifting was demonstrated. The next big event at the Mill is August 15 when they host their annual corn boil from 3 to 7 p.m.

Lynn Cronk of Parham, Ontario, begins removing the yoke from Leroy and Duke after a pass through O’Hara Mill Homestead grounds July 28. The orphaned bulls were hand fed by his wife Leslie and raised specifically to work as an “ox team.” The team demonstrated how farm animals served in clearing land by pulling heavy loads.

Purdy’s words echo outside iconic A-Frame

EMC News - Ameliasburgh The work of Al Purdy continues to inspire and impress. And it continues to resonate. Whether it be a poem penned half a century ago or the small home he built with his wife on the edge of a tiny lake, it has a remarkable and humble durability. Dozens of people gathered last weekend at the Al Purdy A Frame on Roblin Lake to remember the late great Canadian poet and continue to support and promote plans to create a writer in residence program there.

Purdy, who penned more than 40 books during his career, built the small home along with his wife Eurithe spending much of their time there in the ensuing decades before he passed away in 2000. Eurithe Purdy, who now lives in Belleville, was among those in attendance at the First Annual Al Purdy Picnic, joining the crowd to hear recitations and reflections presented in the open air from the deck overlooking the water. Organizer Michele LinternMole welcomed the visitors and introduced about a dozen readers who offered a glimpse

into the breadth of Purdy’s work and his impact on other writers, educators and readers across the country for more than 50 years. Music was provided by quartet Station Road, who played a pair of acoustic sets of familiar country and folk tunes. Picnic lunches were available for purchase at the Town Hall with regular shuttle service running to and from the A-Frame, where parking was prohibited. Several visitors opted to walk the approximately 1.5-kilometre distance in what turned out to be ideal weather for a backyard reading.

Once onsite, visitors were free to casually walk the grounds and take in the sights and sounds around them. Lintern-Mole also urged those in attendance to take part in a walking tour of “Al’s Ameliasburgh” with Conrad Beaubien. Points of interest for many visitors included the “Wilderness Gothic” church, the Purdy Library and the Grove Cemetery. She also thanked readers for sharing their “cultural,

literary and social memories.” Work on the A-Frame is ongoing and the Al Purdy A-Frame Association was one of many event partners and supporters. “This is great,” says poet Chris Faiers who travelled from Marmora to attend the picnic. “It’s just such an amazing place.” Familiar with the locale, the A-Frame and the nearby Grove Cemetery, Faiers, a longtime

admirer of Purdy’s work, will be hosting PurdyFest for the seventh year this weekend, which will include Another Dam Poetry Reading in Marmora on Saturday. Purdy’s work is also heavily featured in the play Al Purdy At the Quinte Hotel, which will be performed as an A-Frame fund raiser at the converted United Church in Rednersville (116 Barley Road) on September 28.

Members of the Stirling and District Lions Club were kept busy throughout the evening as a long lineup formed in front of the food concession where hamburgers and hot dogs were being flipped and rolled by a crew of volunteers. With several barbecues and grills in use, serving staff were well supplied with menu items for the growing crowd. “We’re just trying to keep up,” noted Club President Elmore Baitley as he tended to one of the grills, “because it doesn’t look like we’ll be slowing down any time soon.” Nearby, volunteers and car show organizers worked a registration table where dozens of classic car owners signed in for the exhibition that doubled the collection amassed by tractor collectors.

EMC News - Stirling - Freddy Vette brought his CJBQ radio show to Farmtown Park last weekend as the local museum marked its second tractor cruise night. About 500 people arrived during the late afternoon broadcast last Wednesday and many of them brought along their favourite set of wheels. Members of the Quinte Antique Tractor Club, who also hold a large stake in the nearby tractor building and its rotating display of hardware, were out in force with about 50 farm machines dating back to some of the earliest seen in Hastings County fields. As well, about 100 car enthusiasts arrived in their restored vehicles that ranged from Thunderbirds to Impalas and from hot rods to pickup trucks. “It’s been really busy,” says Farmtown Park Manager Margaret Grotek, noting last year’s tractor cruise night attracted plenty of attention as well. “It’s good exposure for us. This is the second year and it seems really

Odds & Sods # 4

The Good Earth:

Dan Clost EMC Lifestyles - Heat wave devastation? We have managed to get through the ďŹ rst heat wave. It was certainly touch and go there for a while, wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it? There were a few times when I felt parboiled. The weekend came, temperatures dropped down to the teens overnight, and we were relieved. The

Reality Check:

following week brought day temps hovering between 26 and 28 degrees C in our area but the humidity was low and a breeze kept us cool. We felt refreshed, even though there had been no rain the week before and no rain during the â&#x20AC;&#x153;coolâ&#x20AC;? week. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know about you Gentle Reader, but I let myself get lulled into a sort of laissez-faire state when it came to gardening. I should have known better. In fact, I do know better but I just sort of lost touch with that little bit of knowledge. Maybe one of the mental pathways was fried in the heat. If that sounds reasonable to you, then Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to offer that up as my excuse. So, what this leads up to is my revisiting our garden on the last Friday night of that two-week period. I was almost devastated; a feeling shared by many of our garden centre customers.

I, too, would have been devastated but a rational part of me said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dan, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking at plants in a garden.â&#x20AC;? A dead plant does mean that time has been lost, work done is lost, more work is yet to be done and money is about to be spent on a replacement. I am not pleased that I have many plants in dire straits and I really canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford to replace them at the moment. However, GR, there are many, many things in this world that are devastating; a dead coneďŹ&#x201A;ower is not one of them. 2. Mulch. We have three types of gardens on our estate. Flowerbeds with mulch, beds without mulch, and a veggie garden with straw mulch. The beds without mulch suffered the most during the heat wave. The plants in them were selected for hot, dry conditions and, mostly, they came through still alive. Mind you they look awful. They seemed to zip through their ďŹ&#x201A;ow-

ering stage in two days instead of two weeks and they are now in the middle of a summer nap. Least ways, I hope theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re napping. The newly planted ďŹ&#x201A;owers, though, are dead. They were set in just before the heat spell and the combination of roots trying to establish themselves coupled with my neglect, they just curled up their toes, and made a petition to change their names to â&#x20AC;&#x153;vertical compost.â&#x20AC;? The mulched ďŹ&#x201A;owerbeds fared much better. The plants are still very thirsty but they will survive. Where the mulch is deepest, the plants are recoverable. The soil is still dry but it is much cooler and the plant roots are in a very receptive state. The vegetable garden, such as it is, has come through in ďŹ ne form. I covered the soil with almost 8â&#x20AC;? of straw in the middle of June. I waited until the soil had warmed up and for

seeds to sprout. I rogued out the taller weeds but left small things like purslane, black medic and dandelions in place. The straw has smothered those weeds, kept the soil very cool, moist and, most important, loose. There is no compaction so water, air and little critters like earthworms can easily get around. On top, the complicated surface with many sharp bits of stem has kept the slugs, snails and earwigs at bay. At the end of the season a turn with a potato fork will incorporate the straw into the soil with all attendant beneďŹ ts. So, for me, lesson learned; take the knowledge you have and put it into practice, otherwise you might just as well write a book and stick it on a shelf somewhere to gather dust. This week I will deadhead, compost more than I wanted to, and replenish the mulch.

MP reiterates opposition to marijuana legalization By John Campbell

EMC News - Northumberland - Liberal leader Justin Trudeauâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s support for legalizing marijuana is â&#x20AC;&#x153;naive and oversimplisticâ&#x20AC;? because it would add to societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ills, not reduce them, says Northumberland-Quinte West MP Rick Norlock. Canada already has trouble dealing with myriad social and health problems caused by two legal substances, alcohol and

tobacco, so why would we want â&#x20AC;&#x153;to create another one?â&#x20AC;? he asked. Trudeau re-ignited the national debate over marijuana while touring British Columbia last week, saying taxing and regulating pot is â&#x20AC;&#x153;one of the only ways to keep it out of the hands of kids, because the current war on drugs â&#x20AC;Ś is not working.â&#x20AC;? Norlock scoffed at the Quebec MPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reasoning, arguing selling

marijuana through a system similar to that of a liquor control board would not prevent youth from acquiring the drug, the same way they can now with alcohol despite being underage. ButAl Graham, a Campbellford resident and medical marijuana user who has long advocated making the substance legal, said teenagers will â&#x20AC;&#x153;tell you itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easier to get marijuana than it is for them to get alcohol and tobaccoâ&#x20AC;?

because their sale is regulated. A further advantage of legalization is that it will create jobs for people who produce, process and sell marijuana, and generate tax revenue for the government, Graham said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Also, money is saved on law enforcement on top of all this.â&#x20AC;? Norlock agreed with Trudeau â&#x20AC;&#x153;the war on drugs has been less than successfulâ&#x20AC;? but argued making marijuana more widely available isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the answer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a huge problem with impaired driving,â&#x20AC;? he said, and that will only increase if marijuana use were to become more popular once legalized. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The police can charge you with driving with a drug in your system but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just very difďŹ cult in court to prove,â&#x20AC;? said Norlock, an OPP ofďŹ cer for more than three decades before he retired 12 years ago. The MP said he â&#x20AC;&#x153;would be prepared to really seriously

consider decriminalization or legalization if there were truly scientiďŹ c studiesâ&#x20AC;? independently done and peer-reviewed in support of such a step but he is â&#x20AC;&#x153;unaware of any.â&#x20AC;? Trudeau, in reiterating his partyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s position set out last year, said, according to the Globe and Mail, that â&#x20AC;&#x153;very serious studies that have come out [made him] realize that going the road of legalization is actually a responsible thing to look at and to do.â&#x20AC;? But marijuana use hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been studied as in-depth as alcohol and tobacco, Norlock said, and to legalize â&#x20AC;&#x153;another substance that we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know enough aboutâ&#x20AC;? makes no sense. Society is already â&#x20AC;&#x153;heading in the right directionâ&#x20AC;? in trying to minimize the ill effects of alcohol and tobacco consumption, so â&#x20AC;&#x153;why do we want to open another can of medical problem worms?â&#x20AC;? he asked.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Maybe we need to do things differently,â&#x20AC;? by consulting experts and referencing studies to see â&#x20AC;&#x153;if there is a better way to dissuade people from using drugs,â&#x20AC;? Norlock said. Graham, who founded People Advocating Cannabis Education (PACE), has been using marijuana legally for seven years to help him deal with Crohnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disease. There are â&#x20AC;&#x153;probably pros and cons on both sidesâ&#x20AC;? of the issue of legalizing marijuana, so people will â&#x20AC;&#x153;have to do the research for themselvesâ&#x20AC;? to arrive at an informed opinion, he said. Norlock offered the same view, saying he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want Canadians to â&#x20AC;&#x153;give a knee-jerk reaction to this, I want them to really think about it, I certainly have as a police ofďŹ cer and now as a legislator. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to, as a society, take a big, deep breath and really think hard before we contemplate doing things like this,â&#x20AC;? he said.

Pair of drug labs discovered

EMC News - Trent Hills - Police have charged two people after a pair of clandestine drug labs were discovered operating in the municipality. The OPP Drug Enforcement Unit executed a search warrant at 221 Banta Road in Warkworth July 25 and found a large methamphetamine drug lab. A second search warrant led to the discovery of another drug production facility at 31 Nelson Road, Campbellford, the same day. In both cases the OPP Clandestine Laboratory Investigative Response Team was deployed to dismantle the illegal drug labs. The team was assisted by members of the Toronto Police Service Clandestine Lab Unit at the Warkworth location. Police immediately notiďŹ ed the Ministry of the Environment, because of the potential impact such labs can have on the environment. Ministry ofďŹ cials attended both locations and monitored the dismantling of the labs by the OPP response team and the Toronto police

unit, but no environmental issues had been identiďŹ ed as of mid-day July 26 when Northumberland OPP updated their initial report. Two Campbellford men, Sut Jhing (Jimmy) Ng, 54, and Sui Yuan Zhao, 39, have been charged with producing a controlled substance, and possession for the purpose

of trafďŹ cking a controlled substance. The investigation is continuing. Anyone with speciďŹ c questions regarding the environmental impact should call the ministryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Peterborough district ofďŹ ce at 705-755-4300 or toll free at 1-800-558-0595.

Acclaimed opera singer returns home to perform By Sue Dickens

EMC Entertainment - Campbellford - “I still feel very much a girl from the country.” Those are the words of acclaimed opera singer Virginia Hatfield. She came back to her hometown last weekend to perform at Westben and was welcomed by her fans. “Singing Broadway tunes at Westben is always such a treat because I know there are people in the community— that’s the sort of music they first heard me sing and I know they appreciate it and will always come out to hear that,” she said “It takes me back a little bit as well … hopefully my voice has improved since I sang as a teenager,” she said, humble about her accomplishment as a soprano.

This time she performed four matinees at Westben. “It was a Broadway review—a variety of songs from Broadway shows, from Rodgers and Hammerstein to Andrew Lloyd Webber, lots of familiar things for the audience,” she noted. “I and the other singers, we just had a great time. It was a really fun repertoire and getting to perform was a huge pleasure.” “My mom had a barbecue yesterday for all the family and friends that came to see the show,” she said. Known internationally, she has travelled to Europe to perform but said she always enjoys coming back to Campbellford. This time was made special by a visit from Bob Petter, who was vice principal at Campbellford District High School,

Acclaimed soprano Virginia Hatfield was visited by Bob Petter during her performances last weekend at Westben. He was principal of Campbellford District High School where she attended as a teenager.

when she was a student. “We met randomly in Toronto about ten years ago. He was with his daughter— he reminded me. It was such a delight to see him,” she said. During her early years here, ages 12 to 18, Hatfield studied under the Westben co-founders soprano Donna Bennett, marketing director and pianist and composer Brian Finley, Westben’s artistic director. “Donna and Brian were

a huge influence on me and were an inspiration,” said Hatfield. She also spent a year, when she was 15, with La Jeunesse Choirs Northumberland. “It was great for performing with other people and getting out in front of people on a regular basis and rehearsing,” she said. For her all the hard work, the lessons and studying have paid off. “I feel as comfortable on

the stage at Westben as I do in a concert hall full of strangers in France,” she said. Hatfield has been very busy this spring and early summer so she is planning on “taking a little time off.” But very soon she will be preparing to perform in an opera in Philadelphia. It is called Svadba which means wedding, she said. It was written by a Canadian composer and she knows the other girls in it because she

did a concert tour with them when she went to Europe last fall. She joined Queen of Puddings Music Theatre singing the role of Zora in Ana Sokolovic’s opera Svadba on a concert tour of Europe. “They haven’t done a stage production of it so this will be a first.” For more on what is happening at Westben go to: < upcoming>.

Last call for “Best Seats” auction By Bill Freeman

EMC Entertainment Havelock - Last call for the “best seats in the house” auction at Havelock Country Jamboree is August 3. Fans will have a chance to bid on the 15 best seats at the 24th annual jamboree while also supporting the Campbellford Memorial Hospital Foundation’s digital mammography campaign. The goal is to raise $20,000 for the much-needed diagnostic unit and Jennifer Goheen of the Jamboree says music fans will get the thrill of a lifetime in a private seat so close to the stage. “It’s a good spot to sit; it’s a thrill,” says Goheen who is personally bidding on tickets so her children can see Jaida Dryer and Jess Moskaluke, up-and-coming singers who definitely appeal to younger country fans. “It’s money I would have spent at Tim’s that will go to a cause that’s well-needed,” she says. In 2010, the last time

the Jamboree and the CMH Foundation teamed up for a best seats auction, fans at the jamboree bid furiously to see their favourite entertainers up close and personal and raised over $12,000 for a CT scan unit that is now one of the hospital’s most critical diagnostic and lifesaving tools. Goheen admits that a lot of Jamboree fans can’t afford to bid on the bigger acts like Reba McEntire or Trace Adkins but there are 26 acts on this year’s four-day program so people have lots to choose from. “We hope to double what we did last time,” she said. “They really need this unit, it’s important to the hospital for early diagnosis for people in this area who are waiting to get this test.” Goheen says Jamboree performers are pleased to be able to help out the cause. “They’re very receptive and glad to be able to do it,” she said. “That’s our hospital if someone gets sick here. It’s the hospital that takes care of anyone at the Jamboree.”

Award-winning Canadian singer Tara Oram will kick off the 24th annual Havelock Country Jamboree August 15. Bidding for one of the private best seats in the house for all shows at the four-day jamboree ends August 2. Funds raised during through the auction will go to the CMH Foundation’s digital mammography campaign.

Local volunteers for the birds

EMC News - Brighton - A handful of local volunteers are doing their part in a province-wide initiative to help save an endangered species. Chimney swifts have been protected in Canada since 1917 by the federal Migratory Birds Convention and were officially designated as â&#x20AC;&#x153;threatenedâ&#x20AC;? under speciesat-risk legislation in 2009. Alarmingly, Canadian populations of the bird have fallen by 96 per cent in the past 40 years at a rate of 8.3 per cent a year. In Ontario, the news is even worse, with an 18.7 per cent a year decline during the ten-year period from 1997 to 2007. In the past 15 years, the area occupied by swifts in the province has shrunk by half. The dark, long-winged, stub-tailed birds are migrants from the Amazon and arrive in Ontario in late April and early May. Although they resemble swallows, swifts never land on buildings, branches, the ground or other places where they can be readily seen. In fact, because of the design of their feet, swifts are actually unable to perch in the way many other birds do. They land only inside dark, rough-surfaced shafts where they cling, woodpecker-like, by their strong claws. Swifts once nested and roosted primarily in large, broken-topped hollow trees, using their glue-like saliva to hold together their semicircular nests and paste them to the inner wall of the tree. As old-growth forests fell to settlement and construc-

tion, swifts began to nest in chimneys that were not used during the warm months. Now, old chimneys have been capped, wired over or lined with sheet metal, a surface that prevents the birds from attaching their nests. As well, most of the remaining suitable chimneysâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;on old churches, schools and commercial and industrial buildingsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;are being closed, lined or demolished.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a contribution to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;citizen science.â&#x20AC;? While theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been keeping an eye on the local locations for weeks, citizen volunteers logged the activity as swifts were in and out of a site on Prince Edward Street last week throughout a 14-hour watch. Other area sites include East Northumberland Secondary School (ENSS) and three chimneys with two flues each in downtown Colborne. All of the information is forwarded to Ontario SwiftWatch, a program launched in 2009 by Bird Studies Canada. What makes it worthwhile? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a contribution to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;citizen science,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? says Brighton resident Colin Griffiths. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Secondly, it is deeply thrilling from a personal point of view to experience the sight of chimney swifts gathering before â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;vanishingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; into a chimney roost. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a wonder of nature.â&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;&#x153;This spring, following the SwiftWatch program protocol, we just started watching,â&#x20AC;? he explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We checked out chimneys in Trenton and Cobourg but, until we lucked into the ENSS chimney, had found no roosts. The second night we watched ENSS, we were delighted to discover a roost of more than 100 birds.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I figure what we discover about this magical little bird just might help the species,â&#x20AC;? added fellow birdwatcher Maureen Campeau, another of the small camp of local volunteers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I can say I have found the whole experience very exciting and rewarding.â&#x20AC;? In 2010 and 2011, SwiftWatch took a look at artificial towers and the effect theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re having in replacing roosting and nesting sites for the birds. The bottom line, says Bird Studies Canada stewardship biologist Kristyn Richardson, is there has never been a swift nesting recorded at any artificial tower site in the province. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know for sure why not,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But there are a couple of different speculations: the temperature in the artificial tower is colder at night and a lot of the towers tend to be placed in open spaces at parks, which is generally not the right location. Or, it could be they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t recognize the towers as chimneys.â&#x20AC;? Richardson recalls how researchers put data loggers, to measure temperature and light intensity, into chimneys being used and not being used by swifts as well as the arti-

Chimney swifts in flight have cigar-shaped bodies attached to swept-back wings. Note the spine-tipped tails. Swifts catch flying insects at Chimney swifts in flight. Swifts often fly together in small groups high overhead, altitudes higher on average than other insect eating birds like swallows and flycatchers. Photo loudly twittering their hi-pitched calls.

ficial towers â&#x20AC;&#x153;to figure out the differences.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because swifts use man-made structures that are starting to deteriorate and disappear is one factor, but the other thing is, if you look at the whole group of insectivore birds including barn swallows, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all declining,â&#x20AC;? she said. The problem: our penchant for a bug-free world and the widespread use of pesticides. Insects are disappearing and, because thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what they eat, so are the birds. Given the challenges they face, any sighting in Ontario is good news. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why, through our SwiftWatch program, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re asking people to submit their sightings,â&#x20AC;? said Richardson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nice to know where they are and when we do know a site, we can do something toward conserving that site for them. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not always

possible, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a start.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sometimes chimney swifts donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fall into the group that hardcore birders like to watch,â&#x20AC;? offered Richardson, when she was told of the local effort coming up short in attracting volunteers to help out on the watch. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are in urban areas and not as exciting. However, I disagree with that. I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s incredible they have adapted almost completely, choosing man-made structures to nest in. And, I think theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re cute.â&#x20AC;?

Nesting sites draw interest from researchers

Brighton - At least one of the local chimney swift roosting sites has drawn the attention of Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s University researchers. Paleoecological Environmental Assessment and Research Lab research technician Christopher Grooms will be coming to Brighton later this month to take a look at the East Northumberland Secondary School chimney. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Generally, schools tend to be excellent roost and nest sites for swifts,â&#x20AC;? he said, in an interview last week. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The chimneys are large and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t normally emit smoke later in the spring and summer when the swifts are here. I expect swift usage of the chimney is almost as old as the school.â&#x20AC;?

Grooms is one of a team of researchers that began digging in 2009 through a twometre-deep deposit of chimney swift guano located in a chimney attached to Fleming Hall at Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s University, a major roost site from 1928 to 1992, when the chimney was capped. In their report, released last year, an examination of the proportion of insect shells revealed that, during the 1940s, swifts were eating mostly beetles. Then, a peak in DDT levels, beginning in the late 1940s, coincided with a change in diet. With beetles being hit more than many other insect group, chimney swifts started eating lower-quality food. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have ongoing research

Air Conditioning

using deposits left in chimneys by swifts,â&#x20AC;? he explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Using swifts as a model aerial insectivore, we hope to shed light on the cause of the general decline of this guild of birds. These are birds such as flycatchers, swallows, swifts

and nighthawks. They all have diet and the way they catch their food [while flying] in common, but swifts are the only ones that leave a record of what they have been eating and what chemicals they and their prey have been exposed to.â&#x20AC;?

Talent showdown shifted to September By Bill Freeman

EMC Entertainment - Havelock The Havelock Country Music Talent Showdown will get even more of the attention it deserves now that it has been shifted to September. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We feel we were not giving enough time to it and it could be so much more,â&#x20AC;? says Jennifer Goheen of the Havelock Country Jamboree which now runs the talent show fund raiser that has given enormous creative boosts to singers like Jamie Spurvey and Cory Marquardt, the last two winners who are now in-demand performers with well-received albums. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was just the timeline with everything going on [it just] didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t allow for it,â&#x20AC;? Goheen told the Trent Hills Independent. So this year there will be no Havelock idol winner on stage during the Jamboreeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sunday bill but the 2013 winner is guaranteed a spot in the 25th anniversary show in 2014. The date for the September contest is still to be ďŹ nalized. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really tough to try to pull this off a Cory Marquardt wowed the crowd and judges at last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Havelock Country Talent Showdown taking top prize. The North Bay week before our show,â&#x20AC;? Goheen said. native spent the winter travelling back and forth to Nashville where he â&#x20AC;&#x153;soaked it all upâ&#x20AC;? working with renowned producer â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we want to grow the talent show Rob Crosby (Garth Brooks, Lady Antebellum, Martina McBride) and some ace musicians including Bob Segerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s drummer.

nurture it.â&#x20AC;? September is an ideal time to hold the show, Goheen added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a nice end to what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re relaxed then and our focus can be how can we help these kids [and] not just throw them a contest with great judges and pop them on stage. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spend some time with them, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s help them, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s build the show bigger. â&#x20AC;&#x153;[It will] have the time and attention it deserves as opposed to rushing through it,â&#x20AC;? she said. The talent show winners have done extremely well, Goheen notes. Spurvey has been drawing good crowds to shows around the region and has used his two appearances at the Havelock Country Jamboree as a professional springboard. North Bay native and former junior hockey player Mar-

quardt, wowed the audience last summer and has spent some of the past year in Nashville working with ace performers and song writers and now has an album. He kicked off the Jukebox Jambo series at The Venue in Peterborough and continues to build up a new following in southern Ontario. Goheen was also impressed with last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s runner-up Brandon Scott of Brighton who has been recording and gigging with two members of Norwoodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chart-topping rock band My Darkest Days. He also rocked The Venue. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He ďŹ&#x201A;oored me,â&#x20AC;? Goheen said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I knew he was good and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d seen him before and seen him play rock things but his live country show was something else.â&#x20AC;? Scott will sing O Canada to open this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jamboree.

Police on the lookout

EMC News - Northumberland - The OPP will be on the watch for â&#x20AC;&#x153;dangerous driving habitsâ&#x20AC;? this Civic Holiday long weekend but will be hoping for â&#x20AC;&#x153;positive driving behaviours.â&#x20AC;? Police will be looking for drivers to adhere to Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Move Over law that applies whenever motorists approach a police, ďŹ re or ambulance vehicle pointed in the same direction but stopped on the roadside with its lights ďŹ&#x201A;ashing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Drivers in this situation are required to slow down and pass with caution, but if the road has multiple lanes, drivers must move over into another lane, if it can be done safely,â&#x20AC;? police said in a news release.. Deputy OPP Commissioner Larry Beechey, provincial commander responsible for trafďŹ c safety and operational support, said far too many drivers ignore this law. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Since 1989, we have lost ďŹ ve OPP ofďŹ cers who were tending to their duties on the side of the road when they were killed by approaching

vehicles and many of our emergency partners have also died at the hands of careless drivers in the same situation,â&#x20AC;? he said. Violators of the law introduced ten years ago no longer will receive a warning but will face a $400 to $1,200 ďŹ ne and three demerit points upon conviction. Police will also be on the alert for people who display aggressive driving habits, drive while impaired or distracted, or do not wear seat belts,â&#x20AC;? said Chief Superintendent Don Bell, commander of the OPP Highway Safety Division. OPP ofďŹ cers will be highly visible on the water and on trails as well, ready to lay charges against people who disregard public safety while boating or off-roading this weekend. Bell said six people have died in off-road vehicle incidents so far this year and alcohol was a factor in four of those fatalities.
