BC BOUND Belleville Firefighters Association members want Belleville to go pink during October. To set the pace they showed off new pink T-shirts which they will be wearing themselves on some approved days, and also selling to the public in support of women’s cancer research and treatment. Left to right, preparing to enter the council chambers, are: Chris Francescone, Mike MacDonald, Ross Turcotte, Kevin McLean, Sean Allair (spokesman) and Joel Baker. Allair noted that a form of breast cancer has also claimed the lives of several men. The shirts will cost $25, with $10 going toward the cancer cause. Please see “Bridge Street bridge” page 5

News - Belleville - More than a few people in and around Belleville might be walking around with some saddle sores after this past weekend, but not from riding horses. Six teams and several dozen participants took part in the annual Battle in the Saddle event on Saturday at Canadian Tire in Belleville, an event that helps serve as a kickoff to a new Pedal For Hope Campaign.

Annual food drive a “lifeline”

News - Belleville - Hallowe’en may be a month away, but trick or treaters of a different kind will be coming to area residences on October 6. Volunteers with Gleaners Food Bank—an expected 300 of them—will be combing the city, canvassing door-to-door in support of the largest Gleaners Food Bank food drive of the year. Now running for 18 years, the one-day food drive typically aims to raise about six months worth of foodstuffs, which equates to about 12 tons of food. The drive raised about 14 tons last year, and Gleaners director of operations

Susanne Quinlan was highly complimentary of the volunteers and the community that helped make it happen in 2012. “I don’t have such a hard job, because we do have such a caring community,” she said. On October 6, starting at noon, volunteers will congregate in downtown Belleville’s Market Square before embarking on four city buses donated by the City of Belleville to neighbourhoods across the community. The goal is to canvas every neighbourhood in the city, but there are ways for the community to make it easier on the organization and volunteers. Please see “Lifeline” page 3

Pedal for Hope is an extension of the Cops for Cancer campaign, which since being started in 1994 has raised over $50 million for cancer research. In Belleville, 2012-2013 marked the inaugural campaign for the region, as members of the Belleville Police Force and officers from regional OPP detachments raised over $78,000 for pediatric cancer research. “I think the Pedal for Hope is becoming very well known in our community,” said BPS Patrol Sergeant and Pedal for Hope team member Julie Forestell. “The word is just spreading.” For the Battle in the Saddle, teams were challenged to spend eight hours continuously spinning the wheels on a stationary bicycle. Many teams worked

in 30- to 45-minute intervals, although one participant, Ray Ellis from the Belleville Fire Department, was a one-man team for the second year in a row, committing to keeping his bike going by himself for the entire eight hours. In the end, Warner said the event had easily eclipsed the $8,000 goal set, and donations were continuing to come in throughout the day. For her part, Forestell said she was thankful for the support offered by the community, and was looking forward to the beginning of the 2013/2014 Pedal for Hope School tour taking place in late April. “This whole campaign is overwhelming with the community support, the corporate support, and the individual support,” she said. “We’re really reaching our community.”


Lifeline for folks in need One of those ways is to become a volunteer, as not only are roughly 300 needed to help canvas, but an additional 50 are needed to help unload buses and sort donations at the Gleaners facility throughout the day. Additionally, a new volunteer role created this year would allow some volunteers to stay home and still participate; neighbourhood stewards open up their garage, porch or yard for the day for the rest of the neighbourhood to drop off donations. This also allows Gleaners to allocate their canvassing volunteers to other neighbourhoods as needed. “It keeps us hopping that day; it’s a big day,” Quinlan said. For those wishing to contribute but who don’t have the time to volunteer, of course food donations are the next best way to get involved. Staples such as peanut butter, apple juice, canned tuna, pasta and pasta sauces, baby food and

vegetables are all needed, and can be left on doorsteps beginning at 12 noon on October 6 to be picked up by volunteers. “This is a one-time event we do, and it is the lifeline for our food donations,” Quinlan said. “It is so important that the community comes together as one driving unit to help their neighbours in need.” Gleaners Food Bank has seen a 15 per cent increase of need for services this year, and Quinlan said the organization has already spent $26,000 on food this summer, and spent over $78,000 on food in 2012. Gleaners Tri-county warehouse distributed 860,000 kilograms of food in 2012, supporting over 11,000 adults and 7,000 children. For more information on the food drive, and to get involved, call Gleaners at 613-962-9043, or visit their web site at <www.gleanersfoodbank. ca>. The annual Gleaners Food Drive is looking for volunteers to help with both canvassing and with sorting donations on October 6.

Declining enrollment for Hastings Prince Edward News - Belleville - Enrollment in the Hastings Prince Edward School Board continues to decline, but Leslie Miller, superintendent of business services says it will likely take some time before the board is ready to make recommendations regarding class sizes and staffing across the region. “We have existing processes in the board as we go through enrollment and consider any impact and necessary changes on class sizes and staffing,” Miller said. From Junior Kindergarten to Grade 3, enrollment in the HPEDSB showed a loss of 103 students, down to 4,989 from 5,092 in 2012/2013. In Grades 4 to 8, the board lost 113 students, down to 5,224 from 5,337 in 2012/2013. Overall, elementary school enrollment dropped to 10,213 from 10,429, and Miller said this is a trend that will likely continue for the next several years. “We were anticipating that there would be a decline in enrollment, however, the actual numbers are coming in and trending a little lower than we had anticipated,” Miller told the board. “In the case of enrollment decline in Grades Four to Eight, they’re actually expected to continue for two to three years, that being based on the fact that the lower Junior Kindergarten to Grade Three enrollment numbers that will slowly move through the system.” Secondary school numbers are a little bit harder to calculate for the board owing to some students only taking

single semesters, however, this group showed the largest decrease in enrollment when looking at the weighted average of secondary school students in the HPEDSB. A September 13 survey found that the board has lost over 400 students in secondary schools, down to 5,128 from 5,598 in 2012/2013. “We are working through that process now and evaluating what changes need to be happening,” Miller said.

Planting a better future News - Belleville - Across the country this September, thousands of Canadians will be planting tens of thousands of trees as part of TD Tree Days, and this past weekend the city of Belleville joined that number for the third year in a row. Taking place amid the rain and drizzle of Saturday morning, 21 people braved the elements to help plant a total of 300 trees at Riverside Park in Belleville. Site leader Jonna Orsbourne said while that was a daunting number for a relatively small number of people, the city of Belleville did their best to make the task a little less intimidating. “It goes so fast,” Orsbourne said. “The city of Belleville has it so well organized, they really map it out for us. They have the trees lying there, we dig the holes, and we put the trees in.” TD Tree Days is TD’s flagship volunteer program that sees over 45,000 trees planted across Canada, the U.S., the UK and Luxembourg in September. Trees are donated by the TD Friends of the Environment Foundation, and not every city gets to participate; submissions are sorted and selected based on a range of factors. Luckily for Belleville, the city has now had TD Tree Days for three consecutive years, but there’s no guarantee the city will be selected for a fourth time. “We lucked out to be able to get it,” Orsbourne said. “We’re very fortunate.” While about 15 of the 21 people who attended the event were TD employees, the initiative is solely a volunteer exercise, and Orsbourne said it’s important for the organization

to be able to give back to both the community and the environment. “We want to make sure we’re putting back into the environment … the trees that we’re utilizing at the bank with all the paper,” Orsbourne said. “Education as well … we like to educate our community and give back to our community.”

Bridge Street bridge will take years By Jack Evans

News - Belleville - The traffic bottleneck on the Bridge Street bridge in downtown Belleville, reduced to two lanes only for the past several months, will be around for a long time, city council was told Monday. The situation was reviewed at the close of a brief meeting, when Mayor Neil Ellis noted he had been getting many questions about the situation with some calling for a complete new bridge. A new bridge, said engineer staffer Ray Ford, would cost in the neighbourhood of about $9 million and it could not be accommodated for several years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think we can get by on repair work to the present structure,â&#x20AC;? he said, adding that he hopes more normal use of the bridge can be restored within the

next few months. Another major problem in building a new bridge is the restrictions by buildings on the west side. A proper four-lane bridge, which, he agreed, is needed, would require costly property purchases. Once repaired, the present bridge should last at least about five years, he said, and then council should be considering a new bridge. Delegations to council comprised one to proclaim October as Child Abuse Prevention Month. That presentation was made by Bonnie Perrigard of Highland Shores Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Aid and Connie Reid of the Quinte Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Foundation. They reported that poverty, substance abuse and mental health issues are the key factors in child abuse cases. Purpose of the special month is to educate the public about the problem, and especially children about their

rights and the help available. Also making a presentation was a bevy of pink T-shirted Belleville firefighters, telling about their pink project to raise funds for womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cancer research. Spokesman Sean Allair said the chief has given permission for firefighters to wear the pink T-shirts on certain days of the week during October. The shirts will also be available for sale to the public at the fire halls, he said. Councillor Jackie Denyes questioned a staff recommendation to lease a large parcel of tillable land in the newly acquired industrial intended area in the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s northeast sector. The lease was approved for Victoria View Poultry Farm in the amount of almost $34,000 plus tax. Councillor Denyes was concerned about complaints from nearby residents for such uses. Acting Clerk Matt McDonald countered that the land is already zoned

The event has been held here for three consecutive years, drawing up to 500 barbershoppers and their escorts from across North America. The Quinte Chapter (A Cappella Quinte), of the Barbershop Harmony Society, is official host for this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s convention.

Recreation and Culture Director Mark Fluhrer reported on the recent official opening of the downtown Core Cultural Centre, praising the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s use of the former library building and attracting various arts groups to the space, including the Quinte Symphony.

News - Belleville - Blustering winds, chilly temperatures and intermittent rain greeted the participants of Bellevilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual ALS Walk this past weekend, but for Andrew Romano, manager of Projects and Events for ALS Canada, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just another sign of how dedicated those participants are. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amazing to see the support that people show us even with this weather,â&#x20AC;? Romano said with a laugh. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They have a passion and we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t thank them enough for their support.â&#x20AC;? Roughly 100 people gathered at Zwicks Park on Saturday for the event, which was marking its 12th anniversary here in Belleville. Walk coordinator Evelyn Wilson has attended every one, co-ordinating eight, and says that after so many years and so many familiar faces, a bond grows between organizers and the various families, teams and individuals who attend each year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It becomes almost like a family,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You see these people typically only once a year, but you see them come back year after year.â&#x20AC;? The event typically raises between $10,000 and $15,000 a year, funds that are used for client care and research into the often fatal disease. In recent years, Wilson said, the profile of the disease and of the organization has seen a bit of a decline, but for a variety of reasons. When the walk first started in Belleville there were 23 people in the region with ALS. Over time, that number has shrunk to seven,

which is both a blessing and a curse for the event. On one hand, fewer people with the disease is obviously a positive, however, it also tends to mean that fewer people attend ALS fund-raising events as fewer people have that personal connection to the disease. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a huge thing to bring awareness, because with a lot of people, especially now in the current generation, ALS is better known as Lou Gehrigâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disease,â&#x20AC;? Wilson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But a lot of this generation has no idea of who Lou Gehrig actually was.â&#x20AC;? ALS, or Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis is an often fatal disease that can rapidly cause a number of health problems, including difficulty breathing, speaking and swallowing. The name Lou Gehrigâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Disease is derived from former American star baseball player Lou Gehrig, who was diagnosed with the disease in 1939, claiming his career, and within two years, his life. Today, ALS Canada is the only national voluntary health organization dedicated to fighting ALS, and for the past 12 years has been holding Walk for ALS events in scores of communities across the country, raising over $3 million for client care and research in 2012 alone. ALS Canada, like many other volunteer organizations receives no funding from the government, making walks like the one in Belleville a massive part of their ongoing operations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very important for us to raise these funds and have this support,â&#x20AC;? Romano said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The money here will go toward research and client care in the

province, which is very important for us.â&#x20AC;? For more information on ALS Canada, visit their web site at <www. als.ca>.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Wyley cheers the pension evolution to call persons outside the public sector realm: “Persons Observing Obvious Ripoffs.” (P.O.O.R. in other words.) You wouldn’t know it from the racket that can be set up when change is suggested,

R0012329135

Dear Editor, Last week’s Globe & Mail contained an article praising Alberta’s “pension evolution” written by Messrs. Robson and Laurin of the C.D. Howe Institute. I wish

inexpensive indulgence

but there are many more cheesed off “P.O.O.R.’s” than there are “Rippers.” Until recently, however, no politician had the temerity to suggest that the party might have to wind-down! Alberta and New Brunswick are two provinces which have politicians ready to bite the bullet and dictate new terms to counter defined benefit pension plans and try to modify the beleaguered P.O.O.R’s contributions to public service workers. (And to lower future workers’ contributions as well.) One sentence in the article titled “Public-Sector Retirement Plans” captures all that was and is wrong: “Changing demographics and economic environments have exposed the governance and design failings of traditional defined-benefit public-sector plans.” This innocent-looking mouthful deserves all of our attention. Renewed emphasis must be gained by the P.O.O.R. who need to persuade Ontario and federal politicians to get with the new realities. Let’s flesh out that all-important single sentence. “Changing demographics and economic environments”: Ask an actuary how much EXTRA his insurance company needs to accumulate

in order to “annuitize” folks who are living much longer than their parents. Have you checked the interest rates that borrowers are offering their clients? Those returns on investment are vastly lower than what was “planned” a decade ago. “Exposed the governance and design failings of traditional defined-benefit public-sector plans”: “Governance” refers to the folks who dole out the loot. Unfortunately, it wasn’t “their” money. They were in on the take, not only didn’t really care, but actually benefitted from their own generosity. If you get the same increase (or more) than you are doling out, and it’s “not your money,” where’s the incentive to be prudent with taxpayer dollars? Brings a whole new meaning to the phrase: “Give ’er”! The term “design failings” acknowledges that letting people retire in their fifties, encouraging them in fact with generous pensions, is, in a word, STUPID. The math was all wrong my son. There wasn’t enough money in the pot in the first place, and then everyone has the audacity to live decades longer than originally forecast! (Especially people who didn’t work in mines or dangerous, tiring, tedious industry.) The facts of the magic sentence are

irrefutable. Nobody wants to give up something that was granted in an earlier fit of generosity (read lunacy). But the good life, envied for so long by Mr. and Mrs. P.O.O.R., has to be modified. It’s not easy; most of the people effected are neighbours, sons and daughters-in-law, buddies and friends. They don’t want to hear this news and no one is comfortable delivering it. But somebody’s got to do it, and if Ms. Wynne and Mr. Harper are reluctant to legislate the changes, it is imperative that we demand new legislators. Detroit awaits the alternative.

Quinte West has a great mayor

Dear Editor, I write to you with joy in my heart and an abundance of gratitude that must be shared. Please help me to do that by publishing my open letter to Mayor John Williams. Dear Mayor Williams, I’m sure you remember me, the mom from Wooler who first wrote to you back in 2010 suggesting that play equipment be installed in the yard of our community hall and then again in 2012 after I read the hall was being demolished and replaced with a “memorial park.” We have spoken several times as well, after that last letter was written. The reason I’m writing to you, but sending the message through the newspaper is simple: I want everyone in Quinte West to know what a great mayor they have in you. When your constituents spoke, you listened. I am so pleased to say we got our park. Thank you! This last week your grounds crew swooped in to prepare the space and by the week’s end … poof! There was a park any community would be proud to have. It is perfect. I also wanted you to know that it’s being received even better than I had anticipated. It has been packed with kids since the moment your crew gave them the go ahead. Kids as young as two and as old as 14 are playing together, getting to know each other and so are their parents. That is exactly what our little community needed to bring us together, a gathering place, where we get to know and learn about each other … where we connect. When people connect with each other they start to care about each other. We are more inclined to keep an eye out for each other and each other’s children. That’s how we grow strong communities. Connecting with each other and you, Mr. Mayor, have given us the forum to do just that. Please continue to do the great work you do. You have renewed my faith that there are politicians who are in their roles to actually make a difference and to act on behalf of the people that vote them into office. I would like to ask you to run for mayor again (and again, and again) so I am able to “put my money where my mouth is” and vote you in for another term (and recommend to others that they do the same). We’d also love for you to drop by the new park sometime to take a look, maybe have a swing. I’m sure you’ll be impressed with it and with how happy the kids are. Sincerely, Jannine Gray, Wooler


OPINION

Assad survives

Editorial - It was already looking likely that President Bashar al-Assad’s regime would survive—it has had the upper hand militarily in the Syrian civil war for at least six months now—but the events of the past two weeks have made it virtually certain. Syria has already complied with the two initial demands of the Russian-American deal concluded over Assad’s head last week. It has signed the Chemical Weapons Convention, and it has given a list of all Syria’s poison gas facilities and storage depots to the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons. That means the United States cannot attack it for at least a year. President Barack Obama’s ability to order such an attack was already in doubt because of opposition in Congress. Now he could not bomb without endangering UN inspectors, who will be all over the regime-controlled parts of Syria by November to take control of the estimated thousand tonnes of chemical weapons. Syria has a year to destroy them all, and until and unless it fails to meet that deadline, bombing is out of the question. Even if there are delays, the United States will be uniquely ill-placed to use them as the pretext for an attack, as it is far behind schedule itself. In 1997 the U.S. agreed to destroy the 31,000 tonnes of sarin, VX, mustard gas and other lethal gases that it owned within ten years. That’s thirty times as much as Syria has, but ten years should have been enough. It wasn’t. In 2007 Washington asked for five more years to get rid of all its poison gas, the maximum extension allowed under the Chemical Weapons Convention. It didn’t meet that deadline either, so last year it announced a new deadline: 2021. Given its own record, the U.S. will find it hard to use Syrian delays as an excuse for resurrecting its bombing threats. The civil war will probably continue during the coming year, and possibly for a good deal longer. Assad’s troops have been winning back territory in the centre of the country, but they have yet to make much progress in the north, the south or the east. They lack the numbers to finish the job now, but the tide is running in their direction.

Gwynne Dyer

It’s time for another David

Close to a thousand separate rebel units are now operating in Syria, but there is no unified rebel army. The armed groups can be roughly divided into jihadists (many of them foreign) who want to create an Islamic caliphate in Syria, and more moderate groups who originally took up arms hoping to create a democratic Syria freed from the Baath Party’s tyranny. Most of the less radical groups want an Islamic republic too, but they are repelled by the extremism of the jihadists. They hoped the West would destroy Assad’s forces and put them in power instead (while keeping the jihadists out), and they are now very angry at the United States for letting them down. But they are also deeply disappointed, for the realists among them can see no other way to win this fight. Many of these fighters would now be open to a regime offer of a ceasefire, an amnesty, and a gradual transition to a less corrupt and repressive political system, and the Baathist regime is likely to make such an offer soon (whether it means it or not). It would not neutralise the jihadists and restore peace to the country, but it might seduce enough of the other rebels to shift the military balance sharply in Assad’s favour. Much cruel fighting would remain to defeat the jihadists, but at least the country would emerge intact. Or the war may just go on and on, ending eventually in partition. But at least we have been spared the spectacle of the United States and its sidekicks attacking yet another Muslim country, only to realise in the end (as in the case of the imaginary “weapons of mass destruction” in Iraq) that its excuse for doing so was false. The pretext this time was going to be Assad’s use of poison gas against his own people. But the timing was weird. (UN inspectors had just arrived in Damascus when nerve gas was fired at the rebel-held eastern suburbs.) The target was pointless. (Why civilians, not rebel fighters?) And why would Assad use a weapon that might trigger Western bombing when he was already winning the war without it? Now the Russians are saying (off the record, so far) that the serial numbers of the rockets that delivered the nerve gas reveal that they did not belong to the Syrian army. They were made in Russia in 1967 and sold to Yemen, Egypt and Libya’ s Colonel Gaddafy—who filled some of them with nerve gas. He had about a thousand tonnes of the stuff. A lot of Gaddafi’s arsenal went missing after he was overthrown two years ago, sold off by the victorious rebel militias. Some of the nerve gas-filled rockets could easily have ended up in Syria, in rebel hands, and the temptation to use them in order to trigger Western military intervention would have been hard to resist. If that is really the case, then President Obama should be even more grateful to Moscow for saving his bacon.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

“Secret trials in secret places” Dear Editor, We like to think we have a legal system in Canada which protects us from arbitrary arrest and imprisonment, part of our civil rights; they make us superior to countries like Syria and Iran, right? Not so. We have a special card called “a Security Certificate” which can be played when someone has been tortured and the evidence would not be allowed in an open court of law. CSIS has admitted that if evidence gleaned from torture were excluded Canada’s security certificate process would collapse. It would also embarrass our government and bring into question, that since we deem torture to be a necessary part of law enforcement, we are then no different from the places we have sent these men to be rendered.

In the third challenge to the security certificate process, we are told neither the prisoner nor his lawyer can be witness, or know the evidence against him, that the challenge will be heard in secret, at a secret location, presumably with curtains drawn lest the light of day intrude. If it cannot stand the light of day, it probably “cannot stand the light of day” and should be thrown out with the garbage. To hold someone in prison for a decade or more without charges is something “other countries” do, the USA for instance ironically in the occupied part of Cuba while constantly harping on Cuba’s human rights record. And, of course, Iran and Syria etc. Paul Whittaker, RR#1, Gilmour

By Lewis Zandbergen

Editorial - This is a make believe invoice from a make believe company: The ABC Supply Co., Charges for services from August 1, 2013, to September 1, 2013, - $246.91 This is how I would like to reply: To whom it may concern, Attached is my cheque in the amount of $244.90. We no longer use pennies so I’ve rounded it down to 90 cents the same way your favourite fast food shops do; the other adjustments are to recover my costs of doing business with you. How I calculated my charges: cheque, 15 cents; security envelope 20 cents; stamp 65 cents; my time $1.00. I figure my time is worth at least minimum wage which is $10.25 an hour. It took me only seconds to open your invoice, so I’m willing to forego charging you for it; I needed a blast from my inhaler but because that was an acquired expense before your invoice arrived, I won’t calculate that into my adjustment. However, I may need to restock if the invoices keep climbing regardless of denying myself the little perks I’ve earned after a half century of labour. After I recovered from the shock of the almost monthly increase, I sat down, wrote you a cheque, inserted it into the envelope, sealed the envelope, affixed the address labels and a stamp and took it to the post office. I’m just a working stiff and can’t justify the capital expense of sorting and addressing machines but if I could I’d charge you a debt retirement and capital expense fee. I didn’t charge for the delivery this time because I was in town anyway on other business, however, in future you may be charged for my gasoline and, of course, a further hourly charge would apply for the time it took me to get there and back. Thanks, Joe B. Everyman Don’t you just wish we could really do this? Well, you could; you’d be the David to their Goliath … but if I remember my Sunday school lessons correctly, that story had a happy ending didn’t it; well, no, not for Goliath …. Lately I’ve been getting really steamed by banks, cable and satellite companies and almost every other service provider for tacking on that extra for just sending you a paper invoice. For a couple of years now we’ve been urged by banks to switch to their online services. I refuse, so I’m charged a couple of dollars for these gougers to mail me a paper statement. It’s high time we objected to this constant “nickle and diming” excuse for another charge, and another and another. I mean you expect to pay for the oil and gas you consume; ditto for your electrical supply. Same thing for banking, cable and satellite services. Soon they’ll be charging admission

Most people who know me know how much I despise our provincial power company but the banks have jumped on the bandwagon and have also found ways to extract a few more pennies from our pockets. While thousands of words could be devoted to this subject, let’s concentrate on the banks this time around. The following excerpt is taken from a 2012 CTV news report. “Combined, Canada’s five largest banks recorded a $7.8 billion profit in the third quarter of 2012 alone, soaring past expectations and recording a 45 per cent increase from a year earlier. “All five banks boosted their dividends as a result of the strong numbers. “The Royal Bank reported the highest numbers … $2.24 billion in earnings … up from $1.29 billion in the same period one year earlier. “Total revenue for TD was $7.76 billion, compared to $6.9 billion a year earlier. … “… TD Bank … raised its dividend by five cents to 77 cents and said income rose to $1.7 billion in Q3, up from $1.49 billion a year earlier. “The CIBC also reported gains on Thursday, saying its net income for the third quarter of 2012 was $841 million, up from $591 million a year earlier. “On Tuesday, the Bank of Nova Scotia announced it was raising dividends by 3.6 per cent, to 57 cents per share. That followed news that the bank had made a $2.05 billion profit. “The Bank of Montreal also reported positive news for its shareholders on Tuesday, announcing dividends were rising 2.8 per cent to 72 cents a share, based on a $970-million Q3 profit.” Published Thursday, August 30, 2012* That’s from last year folks; betcha numbers are up for 2013. But apparently millions/billions in profit each year are not enough. To justify their rapaciousness, banks, as well as many other service and commodities suppliers use the current ecology boom to line their pockets. They claim they want to protect the environment and save trees; really? If you want to save trees put some of your millions/billions in profits into planting trees. If you already do that, great; do even more! Although I can’t imagine too many people are still without computers and Internet capabilities, those who aren’t must shell out for something they have no control over. And many, myself included, refuse to display their banking information for all to see. If that makes me a Luddite or a troglodyte, so be it. Don’t the authorities always warn, “Once it’s on the ’net, it’s there forever?” Where is our David? *It wasn’t easy but I resisted adding hyphens to CTV’s compound adjectives.

Jamie Day celebrated with a visit from Earth Rangers

News - Belleville - Earth Rangers, the conservation organization that educates Canadian youngsters about the importance of protecting wildlife and their habitats, visited The Parrott Junior School at Albert College on Friday, September 20, as part of the annual Jamie P’H Day. “It’s a wonderful opportunity for the school to come together as a community,” says Crystal Shea, principal of the Junior School. Jamie Prud’Homme was a Grade 2

student who passed away suddenly on November 25, 2008. For her birthday each September since then, Jamie’s parents, Laurie and Christopher Prud’Homme, have organized a special day for students “to remember our wonderful daughter,” says Laurie. “Our hope is that the activities of Jamie Day will plant a seed with the students that will develop into an interest, a passion or even a career choice in their future.” So far, students have learned

karate, explored the world of monarch butterflies, enjoyed a Peter Pan presentation by the Stratford Festival Theatre and taken part in a minidaycamp with Quinte Conservation on Jamie Day. “Jamie will always be remembered,” say Alexandra Schneider and Faith Saar, two former classmates who are now in Grade 7 at Albert College. “She knew how to make you smile and could make a bad day good. Jamie was and

still is loved by everyone she has ever met.” This year, the Earth Rangers brought four live “Animal Ambassadors” to teach students about the importance of biodiversity and conservation. They included a ball python and three carnivorous birds: a Peregrine falcon, an American kestrel, and a red-tailed hawk. Each of the birds, all born in captivity, was brought out individually to swoop over the heads

of the delighted students as two Earth Rangers talked about “Bring Back The Wild,” a program aimed at restoring endangered habitats across Canada. This year, the program is focusing on endangered species such as the Western bumble bee, the beluga whale, the barn swallow and the Blanding’s turtle. Earth Rangers will visit 550 Canadian schools during the 2013/2014 school year to educate and inspire children to get involved.

News - Hillier - A harrowing five kilometres of daunting obstacles flooded with slippery mud, a crippling creek all set against a backdrop of glowing grapes awaits spirited, strong-willed contenders with unwavering intensity and endurance ready to embark upon this region’s first-ever extreme survival race. The Canadian Cancer Society Hastings-Prince Edward County and Brighton Community Office, in a newly formed partnership with the Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital Foundation (PECMHF) and the Trenton Memorial Hospital Foundation (TMHF) are proud to present the inaugural Grapes of Wrath. This exciting charity obstacle race will raise funds for patients receiving cancer care and services from the above-mentioned organizations. The gruelling course, designed with assistance from Gordon Peckham, commanding officer of CFB Trenton’s Health Care Centre and a Director of the TMH Foundation Board, will be hosted

by Hillier Creek Estates in Prince Edward County on Saturday, September 13, 2014. This race will challenge your resilience, strength and stamina and will test your ability to have fun in the face of hardship. Participants may choose to race solo or as part of a team. Hillier Creek Estates sets the perfect scene for this race. Racers will trudge over, under and through grapevines, splash through the winery’s namesake creek while building the courage to overcome uncompromising mud stricken obstacles while raising money for health care in our communities. The winery’s land had been originally granted to Dr. James Latham, a British army surgeon serving in the United States during the War of 1812. He is noted as being the first inoculator of the smallpox vaccine. Hillier Creek Estates, in its current state, is a farm winery comprised of 50 acres; 24 of which are planted with Gamay, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Riesling, and Vidal grapes. “This is something that hasn’t been done in this area and we think it’s an exciting, exclusive event. Because of the beautiful scenery the winery lends and as Prince Edward County becomes known as a premier wine destination, we thought this would be a perfect blend of charity and camaraderie as challengers come together as teams or individuals to participate in this fun and inspiring event while raising money for much-needed medical equipment for patients using our hospitals and for patients receiving cancer treatment. It is going to be an exhilarating event and we are sure we will raise

significant funds for the HPE and Brighton CS as well as the PECM and TM Hospital Foundations,” said Wendy Warner, executive director of the TMH Foundation. “Fund raising can be a difficult task when there are an abundance of charities looking for support and donations from the public,” said Amy Doyle, Canadian Cancer Society. “Through this partnership we hope to bring our communities something different, that’s unique to this area, electrifying and at the same time tap into a whole new genre of donors and sponsors.” Mark the date on your calendars Saturday, September 13, 2014, and watch for registration and sponsorship information soon to come. For 75 years, the Canadian Cancer Society has been with Canadians in the fight for life. We have been relentless in our commitment to prevent cancer, fund research and support Canadians touched by cancer. From this foundation, we will work with Canadians to change cancer forever so fewer Canadians are diagnosed with the disease and more survive. The PECMH and TMH Foundations support their respective hospitals by raising funds and awareness of the need to assist in the provision of priority medical equipment and services for all patients and residents of our communities. It is through the generosity of our donors that our doctors, nurses and technologists can provide quality health care to the patients at PECM and TM Hospital.

News - Belleville - Provincial Education Quality and Assessment Office (EQAO) results are rolling in for the Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board, and a mixed bag of results from students in Grades 3 and 6 show marked improvements, but percentages still languish below provincial averages in several categories. “It’s very rewarding to see the increases this year,” said Mandy Savery-Whiteway, Director of Education for Hastings Prince Edward. “They’re a direct result of the efforts by our teachers, support staff and school administrators to focus on student achievement and [the] belief that all students can achieve.” Taking place late last spring, hundreds of local elementary school students participated in the latest round of EQAO testing, which seeks to independently provide parents, guardians, teachers and the public with reliable and valid information about student achievement. EQAO typically tests students in Grades 3 and 6 on their reading writing and mathematics skills, while Grade 9 EQAO assessment is differentiated based on curriculum expectations within each mathematics course and is administered once per semester. For Grade 3, the EQAO standardized test results showed little change from the previous year, with a steady 57 per

cent of students achieving the provincial standard in reading, as compared to a 68 per cent provincial average, up from 66 per cent the year before. In the field of writing, a one per cent decrease puts the local average at 62 per cent, while the provincial average increased one per cent to 77. Finally, in math, Grade 3 students showed the greatest regression, with just 55 per cent of students achieving the provincial standard, down three per cent from the previous year. The provincial average also decreased, from 68 to 67 per cent. At the Grade 6 level, students showed the largest improvement of any group across all three categories. In reading, the student achievement level increased four per cent up to 69 per cent, surpassing the provincial growth rate of two per cent, from 75 to 77. In writing, an increase of six per cent brought the local achievement level up to 62 per cent from 56, however, the provincial standard also increased up to 76 per cent. In math, local students bucked a provincial downward trend, increasing their percentage to 43 up from 39, while the provincial average decreased one percentage point to 57. “Our results continue to show steady growth over time, which is what we want to see. We are committed to all students and helping them to reach their full potential,” said Cathy Portt Superintendent of Education, Curriculum Services.


Applefest car show putting Brighton on the map By Ray Yurkowski

Events - Brighton - After a one-year hiatus, the Applefest car show is back this year and promoter Don Postma promises the biggest lineup of vehicles ever. With television personality Danny Koker making his ďŹ rst-ever Canadian appearance as special guest at the Brighton show, car owners are lining up. Historically, the automobile event has averaged about 300 vehicles but this year, Postma says heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be squeezing 600 cars into the Brighton Public School grounds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Plus there is a waiting list,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;?And my phone is still ringing non-

stop. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The show is putting Brighton on the map. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got guys driving in from New York State. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re coming in from all over the place.â&#x20AC;? He adds how heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s receiving email from car enthusiasts from British Columbia to Nova Scotia, all thanks to Danny Koker. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know people who are driving four, ďŹ ve, six hours to see him.â&#x20AC;? As for what to expect at the September 28 show, Postma says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big list. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have a lot of showstoppers along with a lot of rare cars.â&#x20AC;? He notes how one of the cars might hold a special interest for Koker.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Danny tried to buy the old El Camino about three years ago,â&#x20AC;? said Postma. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Apparently, he has a picture of it in his ofďŹ ce. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be interesting to see the reaction when Danny sees it at the show.â&#x20AC;? Postma has lined up another special guest: an appearance by Batman, also known as car aďŹ cionado Glenn McCullagh, of Shelburne, who turned a former Chevrolet Caprice Classic police

car into a re-creation of the Batmobile from the 1989 movie. McCullagh also bears a striking resemblance to the movieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s star, Michael Keaton. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty phenomenal,â&#x20AC;? said Postma with a chuckle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He dresses up as Batman and his wife is Catwoman.â&#x20AC;? Another ďŹ rst for the Applefest car show: there will be a one-dollar admission fee to get onto the grounds. The reason for the decision isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t so much

to offset the cost of the show but more to track how popular the show turns out to be at the weekend festival. Incredibly the entire event has taken shape since the beginning of the year; when show director Jean House ďŹ nally tracked Postma down to ask if he wanted to be involved. Now, one of the logistical challenges on the day of the event is parking 600 cars inside of three hours.

Rain doesn’t deter music fans Motor vehicle collision By Steve Jessel

Entertainment - Belleville - If there’s one thing an outdoor music festival of any kind relies upon, it’s the weather. From Big Music Fest to Empire Rockfest, good weather can make or break an event, but despite blustering winds, cloudy skies and more than a bit of drizzle, Porchfest organizer Lucinda Pritchard said she was determined not to let the weather bring her down. “You can’t do anything about the weather, that’s the only part we have no control over,” she said wryly. “We take what we can get.” Roughly 40 people attended the opening ceremonies for Porchfest Belleville 2013 on Saturday afternoon, kicking off a full-day event featuring 60 performers on 19 porches and stoops throughout the East Hill neighbourhood of Belleville. Helping kick off the event was well-known Belleville musician Andy Forgie, who said it’s always refreshing to be able to come home and play for his neighbours and friends. “It’s home, and that makes all the difference in the world,” Forgie said. “You don’t expect fancy trappings or fancy sound or lighting systems … I’m totally content to just be on the front porch, or be on the stoop, or an orange crate—it doesn’t matter, it’s home, and I think that’s the thing that makes it so special.” Porchfest is the brainchild of Pritchard and Ken Hudson, and in 2013 celebrated its fifth anniversary. Pritchard said the event is meant as a stress-free environment where the neighbourhood can connect with each other, and also provides a great venue for up-and-

coming talent from the Belleville area. “We just want to have fun in our neighbourhood,” Pritchard said. “We love our neighbourhood, it’s a great area that’s easy to walk around … it’s just been a really great way to meet neighbours and have a good time, and we really believe in grassroots community events, and really believe that these kinds of events bring communities together.” Pritchard conceded that the rain would probably mean smaller audiences than in past years, but said she was already looking forward to 2014. “I expect we’ll probably not have as

many audience members as we have in the past,” Pritchard said at the opening of this year’s event. “But, everyone has got their umbrellas out, and we’ve got some devoted Porchfest fans … maybe we’ll have fewer audience members but I don’t think that will detract from our event overall.” Pritchard isn’t the only one looking ahead to 2014, as Forgie agreed the event was a fun and charming festival, to which he would ask for only one change. “Here’s to 2014 and sunshine,” Forgie said with a laugh.

News - Belleville - At approximately 4:10 p.m. September 20, 2013, a multiple vehicle collision occurred at the intersection of Victoria Avenue and Church Street. Three vehicles were involved with one vehicle rolling over. Two persons were transported to Quinte Health Care for treatment of minor injuries. A 47-year-old female driver of a vehicle, eastbound on Victoria Avenue has been charged with failing to stop for a red light. All three vehicles were demolished. Belleville Police Service Traffic Management Unit is continuing the investigation. Any witnesses are asked to contact Constable Rob Travers at 613-966-0882 ext 2233. Traffic Management Unit Charges While travelling on Highway 401 to several adjacent communities during follow up investigations an officer with the Belleville Police Service Traffic Management Unit encountered two drivers that attracted his attention. On September 22 at approximately 09:15a.m., an officer on the east bound 401 observed a white Honda Civic travelling at 188 kilometres an hour. A 47-year-old female from the GTA has been charged with stunt driving, with a court date in October. Her driver’s licence was suspended for seven days and the vehicle was impounded for seven days as per the legislation. On September 22 at

approximately 2:55 p.m., the same officer was returning from Kingston and observed a white Toyota Tacoma on the westbound 401 at Napanee travelling at 133 kilometres an hour.

During the outdoor class, a few students outfitted as police offers participated in two scenarios related to the Liquor Licence Act. The objective was to empower them to put into practice the theory they are learning in class. Students then analyzed the scenarios and recommended appropriate responses. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Development of this scenario is consistent with best practices in education,â&#x20AC;? said Karen Brooks-Cathcart, Dean of Health, Human and Justice Studies. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Simulated activities bring the theoretical learning to life in a safe, supported environment. We are so grateful to Belleville

Police Services and T.A.S. Communications for contributing to the realism of this scenario. The uniforms and equipment help students to more fully embrace the roles they play in simulated learning.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;This experience is really beneficial,â&#x20AC;? said Police Foundations student Taylor Crawford. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It makes me feel more comfortable going into placement, knowing what can happen, what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m supposed to do and how I should reply to what people say.â&#x20AC;? Loyalist Collegeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s two-year diploma in Police Foundations combines rigorous academic studies with realistic practice scenarios, allowing students to put classroom theory into practice, interpreting and applying the law in a realistic manner. Program faculty have experience at all levels of policingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; municipal, provincial and federalâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and students gain practical job experience before graduation

News - Quinte West - The first Bay of Quinte Road Race Challenge saw great weather and participation as over 70 cyclists took part in the 26- and 44-kilometre leisure rides as well as the 120-kilometre Ontario Cycling Association sanctioned road race. With 51 competing in the sanctioned course that took riders through Prince Edward County, the City of Belleville and both urban and rural areas of Quinte West, riders were thrilled with the scenery and condition of the course and said they would definitely be back. Following each of the three rides, participants were treated to a gourmet barbecue provided by The Ramblinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Pit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This event is a real success story of how our regional partners are working together,â&#x20AC;? noted Bay of Quinte Tourism President Ryan Williams. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cycle tourism is such a growing market and we

are so fortunate in the Bay of Quinte Region to have such great trails, roadways and routes to draw tourists to our area,â&#x20AC;? he adds. Participants in Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s race were not only able to take in the scenery and enjoy a great lunch, but also support a great cause. A portion of each registration fee will go directly to the local Heart & Stroke Foundation and riders also had the option of pledging additional amounts. Funds are being tallied, with a total expected later this week. The 120-kilometre race results were as follows; Youth (Open) - 1st Place: Derek Harnden (3:01:11), 2nd Place: Lucas Bent (3:01:43), 3rd Place: Tyler Allsopp (3:31:32), Adult Open - 1st Place: Kevin Black (3:01:25), 2nd Place: Greg Woitzik (3:01:26), 3rd Place: Casey Roth

The dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s overall winner was Derek Harnden from the Peterborough Cycling Club. Committee Chair, Quinte West Councillor Fred Kuypers, reported that they were pleased with the results of the first event and look forward to further improvements for next year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This was the start of a new opportunity for Quinte West,â&#x20AC;? he commented. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We appreciate the support provided by the many volunteers, race officials, local municipalities, staff, Bay of Quinte Tourism and the Quinte West OPP and Belleville Police who provided support along the routes and made it possible.â&#x20AC;?

Annual District Drumhead Service at the Ted Snider Bandshell in Fraser Park

(Above) Various Colour Parties from Legion Branches of District F took part in the Annual District Drumhead Service at the Cenotaph and Ted Snider Bandshell in Fraser Park on Sunday, September 22, 2013, followed by a street parade to Legion Branch 110. Also taking part were Veterans and Comrades from the area Legion Branches, the 8 Wing Pipe and Drum Band, and cadets from 173 Air Cadet Squadron Squadron. (Left) Local dignitaries representing the City of Quinte West, the Federal Government, 8 Wing Trenton, Quinte West OPP along with Legion District, Zone, and Branch 110 officers officiated at the District Drumhead Service on Sunday, September 22. The Drumhead Service is a tradition going back for centuries that soldiers in the field, without access to their chapels or churches on Sunday, would place their drums neatly, consecrate them by laying their standards on them, and use them as an altar.

Bruce Julian, President of Ontario Command of The Royal Canadian Legion, was the guest speaker at the District Drumhead Service held recently at the Ted Snider Bandshell in Fraser Park.

Sports - The Duvanco Homes Bantams were upset by the Central Wolves 3 - 2, and then came back with a 5 - 0 victory over the Markham Waxers in weekend ETA Hockey action.

Scoring for Quinte were Elliott McDermott, and Ryan Fraser with assists coming from Aidan McFarland, Shelby Rienstra and Jakob Brahaney. Aidan Cameron handled the goaltending duties. On Sunday in Belleville, the Devils got balanced scoring from Mac Lowry, Jakob Brahaney, Brock Bronson, Brady Gilmour and Ryan Fraser. Elliott McDermott contributed two assists, and single assists came from Gilmour, Tanner Sheppard, Colin VanDenHurk, Ryan Smith and Scoley Dow. Anthony Popovich picked up the shutout in goal for Quinte. The Bantams have no games scheduled until October 5 and 6 when they travel to Barrie

out to a quick two-goal lead. With their relentless style of play, the Red Devils owned the Toros in the second and third period outshooting them by a wide margin. Quinte’s Jacob Gilbert scored at the 10:56 mark of the second period to cut the lead by one. Assisting on the goal was Jaxen Boyer. Quinte kept pushing in the third and Gilbert found the back of the net for his second of the game to tie it up at two apiece. Assisting on the goal was Gavyn Stevenson. In goal was Matthew Tovell who was stellar and made several key saves to keep his team in the game. Next action is next weekend when they play the York Simcoe Express and the South Central Coyotes. Kwik Kopy - Minor Bantam The Kwik Kopy Minor Bantam Red Devils opened their season this weekend with two games. In a home opener versus the Peterborough Petes on Saturday the team came away on the wrong side of a 4 - 3 score. The three goals were scored by Mathew Poole, Zack Wheeler and Dawson Baker. Assists went to Nathan Dunkley and Scott Belanger. Evan Morrison had a strong first-game performance. On Sunday the team travelled to Lindsay to meet the Central Wolves and once again came up one goal short in a 3 - 2 loss. Goals were scored by Dawson Baker and Nathan Dunkley both of which were unassisted. Pierce Nelson had a strong opening performance as well this weekend. McInroy Maines - Minor Midget This past weekend, the McInroy Maines Minor Midgets team faced Kingston and Whitby in ETA East regular season play. On Friday night, the Devils faced the Kingston Frontenacs on the road. An early goal by Kingston put Quinte down one. But Greg Thomas

responded with a goal from a scramble in front of the net. Assists went to Austin Fry and Graiden Maynard. Two more goals by Kingston gave the Frontenacs a 3 - 1 lead. A goal by Trent Schutt (assist to Ethan Coens) narrowed the gap but a great amount of pressure and a late flurry produced nothing and the Devils went home with a 3 2 loss. In net for the loss was Brad Dobson. On Sunday afternoon at the Quinte Sports Centre, Quinte

needed a win but faced last year’s ETA East regular season winners, the Whitby Wildcats. An outstanding effort by the entire team led to a 2 - 1 victory for the Devils in a penalty filled contest. Goals were scored by Graiden Maynard and Shaw Boomhower with assists given to Dawson Whyte and Trey Maracle. Jack Moore was in net for the win. Quinte’s record now sits at 1-2-0. Next game is in Ajax on Friday night.

Sports - Belleville - Hockey dressing rooms are typically loud and jubilant places, but last Saturday one could hear a pin drop in the lower level of the Yardmen Arena, as Belleville Bulls players walked off the ice following a 4 - 1 loss to the North Bay Battalion to open the home portion of their Ontario Hockey League season. There was no cheering and little chatter; just quiet resolve to get better. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They should be upset,â&#x20AC;? said Bulls coach George Burnett sternly.

Simmonds acknowledged that the players were upset about going winless in the opening weekend, but feel they can turn their season around quickly by making a few adjustments. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It starts in our defensive zone; we have to do the little things right,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some guys have just played their ďŹ rst games.

Brothers racing toward BC nationals By Richard Turtle

An added surprise was a return home for the replica Tow Mater, now owned and maintained at Farmtown Park, that was originally purchased new at McKeown’s as a stock 1988 Dodge Dakota. The truck was purchased by a Deseronto couple, Reid says, and after the husband passed away the truck was sold and modified to resemble the recognizable cartoon character.

Sports - Stirling - Sometimes you have to choose. And after a hugely successful season of travelling to race their BMX bikes, combined with a season of travelling with the Stirling Blues, Lance and Cole Zufelt had a decision to make. “We didn’t want it to be our choice,” says their father Tim, “we wanted to leave it up to them. And they made up their minds that this is what they wanted to do.” And, says mom Elise, with the time commitments required there really was room for only one serious sport. So now registered in the SDMHA’s house league, and a far more relaxed hockey schedule, the boys are free to pursue their cycling dreams, which currently include a trip to the national championships. In their respective age groups, Cole, soon to be ten, and eight-yearold Lance are ranked in the top five in Canada. The rankings, Tim explains, come from results of sanctioned races that have placed both boys in the number one spot provincially. The boys race two different bikes each on both indoor and outdoor tracks but the outdoor season is winding down, he says. But with race weekends continuing until December, the Zufelts are currently setting their sights on Chilliwack, British Columbia, where they will be spending Thanksgiving on the track against competitors from across the country. But in a lot of ways, it won’t be a lot different from weekends past. So far, the boys say, the cycling competitions have taken them to Quebec, Delaware, Kentucky, Ohio and New York, to name a few, but the upcoming trip to Canada’s west coast will be a first for them. And while it will be a return trip for both Elise and Tim, they admit there won’t be much time for sightseeing. With Cole and Lance attending regular classes in Grades 5 and 3 respectively at public school in Stirling, competitions have to be squeezed in between school hours. And while they admit there are a few extra days off as a result of the travel, the schedule hasn’t been overwhelming for them. “It’s not bad,” says Cole of the long days on the road. “You get used to it.”

Please see “Eight” on page B2

Please see “Trips” on page B2

Lance and Cole Zufelt will be heading to BC in October to compete nationally as the year’s BMX racing season winds down. After a successful season of BMX racing in Canada and the U.S., Cole and Lance are looking forward to their upcoming trip to the west coast.

McKeowns host thank-you party for 2,000 By Richard Turtle

R0012321384

News - Spring Brook - While it was free as well, parking was at a premium in the small community north of Stirling last weekend as the local car dealership celebrated 80 years of family business. Now owned and operated by Bill and Grace McKeown, McKeown Motor Sales first opened its doors in 1933 and has earned a long list

of loyal customers ever since. And many turned up at the dealership last Saturday for a full day celebration that included activities and games, live music and plenty of food. McKeown Sales Rep Ron Reid, who was among those to address the crowds, says the day, which was an opportunity for the business to acknowledge its customers, was a huge success attracting well over

2,000 visitors and offering lots to do both in and out of the rain. Along with live music performances indoors throughout the day by Kelli Trottier, Wrought Iron Roots and Freddy Vette and The Flames, rides and children’s games as well as displays and demonstrations by members of the Stirling-Rawdon Fire Department were also a part of the anniversary celebrations.

It was later donated to the museum. The remaining original co-owner, however, received an invitation and was able to attend the celebrations, “so that was really nice,” Reid says. While greeting visitors, host Grace McKeown explained the party is a chance to thank the customers for their support but is also a simple extension of the sense of family and community the business is based on. “And with this community’s support,” she says, “you can get through anything.” O f f i c i a l congratulations were also offered from Prime Minister Stephen Harper through local MP Daryl Kramp, and McKeown staff commemorated

the milestone with a donation to Farmtown Park. A Canadian sugar maple will be planted in the agricultural museum’s extensive courtyard with a plaque “in recognition of 80 years of outstanding service.” In the end, Reid says, about 2,200 meals were served over the course of the day and even the weather couldn’t put a damper on the collective enthusiasm.

As a result of loading up bikes and driving through Canada and the United States, he says, “we’ve all learned a lot.” Following the Grand Nationals in BC, which means airline tickets instead of the usual highway travel, the duo will be back on the road with their parents to continue the indoor racing season south of the border until mid-December.

Smile Cookie proceeds going to digital mammography campaign

News - Campbellford - The Tim Hortons Smile Cookie campaign got under way Monday as the Tim Hortons owners in Campbellford joined this annual fund raiser. All the proceeds from the event here from sales of a special smiling chocolate chunk cookie will go to the Campbellford Memorial Hospital Foundation’s digital mammography campaign. The $1 treat helps charities, hospitals and community programs across Canada in the cities where they are sold. The fund raiser, which began September 23 continues until Sunday, September 29. “It’s amazing to see the difference $1 can make,” said Doug Robertson, Tim Hortons restaurant owner in Campbellford. “We are proud of our ongoing commitment to the Campbellford Memorial Hospital Foundation and want to thank our loyal guests for their gener-

ous support of the Smile Cookie campaign year after year. We encourage everyone to visit us this week to get their own delicious Smile Cookie in support of a great cause.” Calvin Newman, chair of the Campbellford Memorial Hospital Foundation said, “The hospital is honoured that local Tim Hortons owner/operators Doug and Josephine Robertson are once again supporting the hospital with the Smile Cookie program. “This is the seventh year the program has supported the hospital with $9,405 being raised to date for the purchase of high priority medical equipment.” The Smile Cookie campaign started in 1996 to help raise funds for the Hamilton Children’s Hospital in Ontario and has grown to become a major fund raiser at Tim Hortons restaurants across North America. Last year, the campaign raised more than $4 million

across Canada and the United States. Nationally, more than 350 local charities are supported each year through the campaign. New this year, Canadians can send their friends and family a virtual Smile-o-Gram by visiting <www.timhortons.com/ smilecookie>. Simply choose from a list of messages or create a custom message for the Smile-o-Gram then share via Facebook, Twitter or email. To learn more about the charities the campaign supports go to: <www.timhortons. com/smilecookie> or join the #SmileCookie conversation at <www.twitter.com/timhorton> and <www.facebook.com/TimHortons>. For more information about the digital mammography campaign in Campbellford contact Catherine Holt, donor relations at the Foundation office at 705653-1104 Ext. 2104, or email <cholt@cmh.ca>.

Autumn Blaze Maple: New kid on the suburban block

Lifestyles - Consumer preference is not decided by growers or magazine writers; it is decided by sales. For many years the front runner has been the Crimson King (CK), a Norway maple (Acer platanoides), which sports deep maroon-coloured leaves throughout the season. However, this tree is gaining its

Quinte

detractors for several reasons. Overuse: it is not uncommon to look down a street of 40 or so homes and see 20 or more which detracts from its effectiveness as, using Michael Dirr’s words, “a horticultural exclamation point in the landscape.” The CK’s dense canopy restricts air movement and sunlight throughout, and

as a result, is especially susceptible to powdery mildew. The white “powdery” spores contrast significantly with the maroon leaves seriously detracting from the visual show … the “exclamation” point for which this cultivar was selected. There are those who would prefer we stick to native species or, minimally, North American derived cultivated varieties. I confess, Gentle Reader, that I am ambivalent on this. When we landscape our bits of this good earth, we are creating artificial constructs to please our sensibilities. Those sensibilities may also include philosophical motives for using only native plant material. From my perspective, a bad plant in a bad place is a bad choice no matter the origin of the plant; and of course, the opposite also holds true. So why would anyone plant this chappie? Simple, they like it. A new kid on the block, which is challenging CK, is a derivation from a naturally occurring cross between two native species. “New” is a relative term as the original plant patent for the Autumn Blaze (AB) maple was issued in the late 1960s to

Glenn Jeffers. In the text books, you will read Acer x freemanni ‘Jeffers Red’ pp 4864. That was probably too big a moniker for the advertising boffins who are all about catchy phrases so “Autumn Blaze” has become the common name. The reason I suggest that this is the new kid is that this is the first year I can remember so many customers referring to it by name. Usually they want a maple that turns red in the fall; they are vaguely aware of the native red maple, Acer rubrum, as a species, and are surprised to find that there is such a large variety. In one book, I saw 57 different “red” maples listed as being commercially available. In the wild, cross-pollination is common amongst compatible species and the offspring exhibit varying combinations of their parent’s characteristics. In the maple forest, silver maples (Acer saccharinum) and red maples (A. rubrum) are especially compatible and many a young sapling has resulted. Usually an arborist is the first to discover a superior cross lounging about a forest glade somewhere or, sometimes, deliberate crossing is done by a

nurseryperson just to see what happens. The latter is now the most common method of creating “new” plants. When a particularly promising offspring is noted, it is watched carefully over the years and, if deemed economically feasible, it is mass produced using vegetative propagation, or cloning. Different techniques are used but essentially a small bit of the plant is removed and grown into a copy of the “parent.” The AB has picked up the best of both parents: fast growing but long lived, more drouth tolerant than straight rubrum, accepts wet feet better than straight silver, a central leader with branches that go mostly up, leaves of strong orange red autumn tones that hang around longer than most counterparts, maxes out at 55 feet up and 40 feet or so across, does well in most soils including clay but does like a titch of an acidic bite to it. In short, this is a versatile, adaptable tree that looks some nice. I’d buy one. Companion plants (those that enjoy the same growing conditions) include dogwoods, viburnum, hemlock, and birch, especially river birch.

Reality Check:

The debate that won’t go away

Sheila Wray Gregoire

Lifestyles - China’s one-child policy is 30 years old now, and it’s hardly even contentious. It’s often portrayed in Canadian literature as an example of smart government intervention: a country which couldn’t feed its vast population took measures to make sure it wouldn’t become overpopulated. But in June, 2012, 23-year-old Feng Jianmei put a face to the policy when she was forced to undergo an abortion at seven months since she was pregnant with her second child. The authorities grabbed her against her will and held her down while they abort-

China had to promise to punish the people who had done it. I can’t imagine someone ripping a baby I desperately loved from my body, just because the government deemed that I had had enough. We should have control over our bodies. Or should we? Let’s take a CBC undercover sting that reveals the diametrically opposite problem. Last year some

natural surroundings. John Muir, for whom this monument/area is named, was one of the earliest and most influential conservationists in the U.S., and he often talked about the importance of preserving natural habitats for future generations. Therefore, it’s not all that surprising that some of his thoughts are posted here. He himself loved to stroll through nature, and one posted sign, with words that were written originally by John Muir, said, “In every walk with nature, one receives far more than one seeks.” Another sign stated: “I only went out for a walk, and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, for going out, I found, was really going in.” After our walking tour among these fascinating trees, we returned to our bus and drove on into California Wine Country. It was rather

comforting to know that after our hike, we would be spending the afternoon relaxing, merely sipping pleasant wines and strolling through vineyards and wineries. Vineyards are actually found in many parts of California, but we were to visit two of its most famous wine areas: Sonoma and Napa. After all, these two counties alone have more than 600 wineries. Our first wine country stop was at Gloria Ferrer Winery, which was the first sparkling wine house in California’s Sonoma Carneros region. The Ferrers arrived here from Spain in the 1980s, purchased a cattle ranch, and planted grapes. They’ve expanded since then, and their estate now encompasses 335 acres. We toured their storage caves and property, and we sampled some of their wines. We also went to another Sonoma Valley location, the

Cline Cellars Winery, where an 1850s-era farmhouse fronts as the tasting room, and several rock-walled ponds are found on the grounds. I spent much of my time wandering around the estate’s expansive grounds, enjoying the many roses, and checking out some of the rather comical signs that were located by the spring-fed ponds, including “Be Careful – Mud Sharks Feeding.” I, of course, also tasted some more wine here, and I learned that this estate pioneered the planting of Rhone varieties in this region. In addition to these Sonoma County wineries, we also spent some time in the city of Sonoma, for we had lunch here. We discovered what a dog-friendly place this was, for several pets were sitting on restaurant patios with their owners, and one dog was actually up on the table! While in Sonoma, I wan-

Lifestyles - While visiting in San Francisco, my wife and I took a day trip by bus to see California’s renowned redwoods and wine country. We took the trip with Extranomical Tours, <www.extranomical.com>, and the bus picked us up at our hotel and returned us there, with its convenient door-to-door service. We crossed the awesome Golden Gate Bridge and continued to the Muir Woods National Monument. It’s part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, and caters to pedestrians. Here we were able to walk along footpaths that were surrounded by giant redwoods, many of them hundreds of years old. These are some of the tallest trees in the world, and we found that we were getting sore necks from gazing upward, trying to pinpoint the treetops well over 200 feet above us. Yes, these trees grow tall! As we walked along a designated hiking trail, we noticed it was cooler in here, and it seemed wetter, with more fog cover; these conditions actually help the redwoods in their growth. The old-growth redwoods definitely seem to thrive here, and Muir Woods National Monument, a protected area that’s listed on the National Register of Historic Places, contains one of the few remaining stands of giant redwoods in the San Francisco Bay area. As we continued our walk in this wooded area, we encountered a designated quiet section at “Cathedral Grove,” and here we were to simply contemplate and enjoy our wondrous

“Off the Map”

Artist Barbara Buntin’s work will be on display at the Colborne Art Gallery from October 5 to November 10. Photo: Submitted

Reality Check the baby a baby? Or is it solely the mother’s choice? And if it is the mother’s choice, then how can you then turn around and tell a man that he has to support a child he doesn’t want? It isn’t straightforward, and it isn’t going away, as

much as the politicians wish it would. Are the unborn alive? And if so, what does that mean? Those questions are fundamental, and we will all have to grapple with them as individuals, even if the government continues to ignore them.

Through her art Buntin attempts to describe a connection to the earth; to work from an experience rather than from observation. She has been inspired by a particular line from Rumi, “When the ocean surges, don’t let me just hear it. Let it splash inside my chest!” and was interested to explore such an effect from this new landscape that took her out of familiar territory. In Barbara’s words, “I continue to portray the human figure but I’m striving for a simpler, bolder and increasingly elemental style. The Yukon landscape may not be immediately visible to others in these figures, but I can see the influence emerging. “There are references to the arc of the ever-present hills and mountains, the low rising sun over a deep cold layer of snow, the continuous flow of the river and an intense silence and solitude. I hope to infuse

my figures with the permanence and reassurance of the natural world.” Barbara works with layered monoprint and collage techniques, produced largely on Japanese washi papers and her own printed work. She nearly always depicts the human figure. She expected that spaciousness in the pieces might be a likely expression of her northern retreat time, but also discovered other surprising and diverse paths. “Off the Map” opens at the Colborne Art Gallery October 5 and continues through November 10, along with works by other gallery artists. There is an opening reception from 2 until 4 p.m. with the artists present. All are welcome to attend.

reporters infiltrated some Canadian medical clinics and discovered that in Canada abortions were being performed based only on the sex of the baby. The feminist response to this has been muted. Feminists are supposed to fight for women, and I can’t think of anything more anti-woman than to kill a baby simply because she’s a girl. And the effects are stunning. According to India’s 2011 census, they’re missing 37 million girls. By 2020 in China, there will be 30 million more men of marriageable age than women. Yet how can pro-choicers protest? They firmly believe that pregnancy is all in the eye of the beholder; if the mom wants the baby, it’s a baby. If the mom doesn’t want the baby, it’s only a fetus, and you can discard it if you want. So if a mother decides that she doesn’t want a girl baby, how can a pro-choicer argue? We Canadians tend to shy away from debates like these because they’re socially unpleasant, and abortion is something we just can’t agree upon. Stephen Harper has been desperately trying to silence his backbenchers who want to make it a political issue, because he doesn’t want the Conservatives labeled as anti-woman. But I don’t think most Liberals would welcome the fight, either. It would be long, and it would be bloody, and most of us would rather just tune out. Can’t the abortion controversy just go away? But it can’t. From the time a small child hears that “Mommy has a baby growing in her tummy” and a new sibling is coming, we instinctively understand that a pregnant woman is carrying a new life. The question then becomes: do we owe that life anything? Pro-choicers told us that the debate would end soon once people realized it was all a woman’s choice. Yet the population, and especially those under forty, is becoming more pro-life, not more pro-choice, as time goes on. A recent LifeCanada/Environics poll found that 72 per cent of Canadians want at least some protection for the unborn. The debate can never really be settled because it raises such thorny issues. Is

News - Colborne - Barbara Buntin’s trip to the Yukon late last autumn formed art works for an upcoming feature exhibition at the Colborne Art Gallery entitled, “Off the Map.” The title refers to both geography and process. Buntin says of her work, “I seek to create resonance with the viewer through images of the human figure, blending elements of the surrounding landscape for a transformative effect.” She often represents the figure with a reference to the landscape we pass through. So, when Barbara received a grant from the Ontario Arts Council National and International Residency Programme that allowed her seven weeks to breathe the Arctic air, she jumped at the prospect for change in the work. She intentionally chose a time that provided an opportunity to take in the change of season from fall to winter.

Lockwood suffered a severe injury in a work-related accident, his wife Mary had a kidney removed and is still doctoring for problems with the other one. Central Hastings News reached the family by phone Sunday evening while they were on their way to Kingston for Joel’s chemotherapy treatment. Life for the Lockwood family totally changed while on March break at Dean’s parents near Bancroft. “We had been busy setting up the pool and getting spring cleaning done,” his mother explained. “Joel awoke the next day with a swollen leg and unable to walk. We rushed him into Bancroft hospital.” She said the attending physician, Dr. Bishop, diagnosed a tumor. “He wasted no time. He gave us a choice of Ottawa or Toronto Sick Children’s Hospital. We chose Toronto and went right away.” His mother said the first chemotherapy treatments did not work and his leg was amputated which removed 41 per cent of the cancer cells. “Rather than having a five-month chemo program his is extended to ten months.” Joel said, “I didn’t know what it was at first. I just woke up and my leg was really bad and I couldn’t walk.” He said it is the same kind of bone cancer (osteosarcoma) which Terry Fox had, and just like it did with Terry Fox, it could take over his lungs. He is scheduled for a lung scope October 2 in Toronto to be followed by surgery. Currently the family goes Sunday evenings to Kingston with their son. “We need to be there a day before chemo, which is every Tuesday, so they can check his platelets; if they are good he can take the treatment, or, if not they work to bring them back up to normal.” The family has not always been able to get overnight accommodation at Almost Home or the Ronald McDonald House and have had to rent a motel room. Hiring someone to stay with their two other children, Gracie, 11, and Hunter, 13, is another cost if a family member is not available. Joel seemed in good spirits while explaining he is doing his school work at home and likes civics, math and geography and he also likes to hunt and fish. His mother says he also likes to draw, “Though writing a book about the cancer experience has become his focus.” The lower portion of Joel’s leg was reattached to the upper portion so that his ankle joint will serve as his knee and a prosthetic extension will be attached to that he explained. Joel said this fund drive will not only help with expenses of travelling to appointments and accommodation but, “It will go to getting me a new leg as soon as I am well enough and can go for physical therapy.” He says often times he is in pain and very sick “… it is hard on everyone, especially my younger brother and sister. I try and stay strong for my parents and them, but, sometimes I get so discouraged.” Donations to the Joel Lockwood trust fund may be made at the Madoc TD Canada Trust, Transit number 29682, Inst.#004, account # 6294670. Friends and the community invite you to attend Little Oktoberfest in Queensborough October 5, and if Joel is well enough he will be there.


Officials learn challenges faced by people with disabilities By John Campbell

News - Brighton - Wearing special glasses that made it hard to see, Councillor Mary Tadman had her eyes opened last week to just how difďŹ cult it can be to get around town for people with a disability. With no peripheral vision and her right side â&#x20AC;&#x153;paralyzedâ&#x20AC;? as if she had suffered a stroke, Tadman said it felt â&#x20AC;&#x153;like youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re falling forwards so it makes you feel very anxious.â&#x20AC;? Adding to her anxiety were the obstacles she encountered shopping and going to the post ofďŹ ce while using a walker as part of the second Accessibility Awareness Day organized by Brightonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Accessibility Advisory Committee. Tadman wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the only municipal representative to gain insight by simulating a disability in the September 20 exercise designed to heighten awareness. Deputy-mayor Craig Kerr spent an hour in the wheelchair and made a stop at the municipal ofďŹ ce and public library. Director of public works and development Andrew Drzewiecki, also in a wheelchair, went to the arena, and director of ďŹ nance Linda WiddiďŹ eld visited the YMCA in a scooter.

The event gave participants an opportunity to confront the many challenges people with a disability face performing ordinary tasks in town. Afterward they congregated at the King Edward Park Community Centre to compare notes on their experiences. Kerr encountered â&#x20AC;&#x153;some real difďŹ cultiesâ&#x20AC;? in his travels, They included elevator buttons less than ideally placed, a door on the upper ďŹ&#x201A;oor that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t open automatically and is â&#x20AC;&#x153;deďŹ nitely a problem,â&#x20AC;? and a heavy washroom door that â&#x20AC;&#x153;for somebody not physically strong in the upper body â&#x20AC;Ś would be virtually impossibleâ&#x20AC;? to open, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got to be an early, early priority for sure [when setting the 2014 budget].â&#x20AC;? The Accessibility Advisory Committee recently took council to task for having done more with the recommendations it made in a report six years ago to improve conditions for people with mobility issues. Last Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Accessibility Awareness Day might have given proposed improvements a boost. Mayor Mark Walas, who was a participant in the 2011

Brighton Councillor Mary Tadman took part in last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Accessibility Awareness Day. Her task was to pose as a stroke victim.

awareness event, said the day helped those taking part â&#x20AC;&#x153;realize the challenges that are still out there today. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot has been accomplished,â&#x20AC;? he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so much more to do.â&#x20AC;? Kerr said in an interview that council members are â&#x20AC;&#x153;always ďŹ ghting the constant battleâ&#x20AC;? to set priorities â&#x20AC;&#x153;because thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s never enough money to go around.â&#x20AC;? What he learned that day is that while the municipality â&#x20AC;&#x153;may meet the requirements for accessibilityâ&#x20AC;? set out in provincial legislation, it needs to spend time on â&#x20AC;&#x153;the little things that are [an]

unnecessary inconvenience for people with handicaps.â&#x20AC;? Kerr said he knew something had to be done with the washroom door â&#x20AC;&#x153;but I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t understand until today just how desperately it does need to be ďŹ xed, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m glad weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re ďŹ nally under way on that.â&#x20AC;? Having taken part in Accessibility Awareness Day, â&#x20AC;&#x153;you start to understand the urgency that comes behind some of Nicole Vreeswyk, a member of Brighton Accessibility Advisory Committhe recommendations,â&#x20AC;? he said, and â&#x20AC;&#x153;start tee, goes over instructions given Deputy-mayor Craig Kerr for Accessibility rethinking other spending priorities.â&#x20AC;?

Entrepreneurs in Action Twin Property Maintenance - John Irish

when starting out: â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you want to be successful running your own business, you have to work hardâ&#x20AC;?. The difference for John was that he took those words to heart. After being laid off, John went in search of community resources that would offer him information on selfemployment. Career Edge directed him to the Ontario SelfEmployment Benefit Program (OSEB) administered by Trenval Business Development Corporation for the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities (MTCU). The OSEB combines financial benefits and entrepreneurial training and John Irish was an eager participant. He developed a business plan for Twin Property Management (now Twin

Property Maintenance) named in tribute to his twin daughters. He was determined to offer a great service at competitive prices. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At first, it was odd jobs and a few lawns. I started

2013 Quinte Business Achievement Awards judging begins some tough decisions. There are many deserving organizations, businesses and entrepreneurs in our community,” says Bill Saunders, Committee Chair. Businesses were nominated in June by their customers, employees, volunteers and local residents. “Every nominee is deserving,” says Stephanie Wilson, Event Co-ordinator. “They were nominated because of great business development,

community involvement or even from a positive customer experience. This event shows how much our community appreciates the development of Quinte area businesses,” Wilson continued. Winners will be announced at the 16th annual Quinte Business Achievement Awards Gala on Friday, October 25, at the new Quinte Sports and Wellness Centre in Belleville. The event offers an exciting

Quinte

opportunity to network and dine among business professionals from across the Quinte Region. The gala is held during national Small Business Week in Canada. “This event sold out early last year, so with only a few weeks to go, now is the time

to get your tickets,” says Saunders. Tickets can be purchased from local Chambers of Commerce or ordered online at <www.qbaa.ca> for $60. The Quinte Business Achievement Awards is a joint effort by local municipalities, Chambers of Commerce and

News - Belleville - Let the judging begin! The fates of this year’s Quinte Business Achievement Award nominees now lie in the hands of the judges and the judges will have their work cut out for them. Winners will be chosen by a panel of impartial business professionals and leaders who will review the submissions next week. “We had 100 nominees this year so the judges are in for

the area. Tadman, who has participated in similar exercises in Brighton and Trenton and is a member of the accessibility advisory committee, said she is well aware of the problems identified. “It’s the one thing I’m very keen and interested in getting help for those who have difficulties,” she said. Asked if the committee’s recommendations will be given higher priority in the next budget because of council members’ heightened awareness, Tadman replied: “I absolutely hope so.” When setting budgets, “if you aren’t really aware of how hard it is to get around when you have a disability, then it gets pushed back.” Walas told The Independent the committee’s recommendations that have not been addressed “is purely an administrative issue, that is really not a council issue per se. We’re hoping now that we’ve really caught the ear of staff to move quicker on some of those recommendations” approved by council which have not been completed to date “for whatever reason.”
