Council and staff delve into Alice-Dundas cost overage SARAH HYATT shyatt@northumberlandnews.com Brighton - The Alice-Dundas project cost overage issue was once again discussed at length at the May council meeting.

"Collectively, staff have acknowledged their part and that better measures and processes need to be in place to track projects and to report changes to council on a regular basis," said Mayor Mark Walas.

At this roughly five-hour meeting, Linda Widdifield, director of finance and administrative services, brought forward a 105page report detailing the timeline and payments for the construction project, which spanned

over two calendar years and ended with almost a $235,000 overage. Trina Connell, a partner with BDO Canada, was also invited to council for the second time

recently to discuss the project and latest staff report. Initially, the report and discussion was slated to take place during an incamera session. Coun. Steven Baker was first to suggest that to "ensure the full confidence of the ratepayers," the report be made public and discussion take place openly. With many echoing similar sentiments, he was supported unanimously as he put a motion on the floor to do just this. The discussion with Connell was thereafter also moved into open session and again, this was a unanimous decision. On behalf of staff, Widdifield explained she was erring on the side of caution when suggesting the in-camera session. She understood council wanting to ensure accountability and transparency and wanting to satis-

At the same time, the corporation needs to be protected from litigation, she said. Her report is "very factual," but Widdifield did worry should council discussion shift or cross a line regarding, say staff performance, that did pose concerns, she said. Both Coun. Mary Tad-

man and Walas urged council to exercise caution while casting their votes to discuss the report openly. Walas stressed he would have zero tolerance for any abuse of staff. While Widdifield explained the reasons for proposing the in-camera session, she did also try to speak to comments made at the previous meeting

around the Alice-Dundas overage and how those made her feel, but Baker was quick to raise a pointof-order suggesting things were getting a little offbase. In the director's report, she did detail on two occasions and during quarterly financial updates that the project was shown as over budget, though some like Baker insist this wasn't clear. Her report also shows a project spreadsheet was developed and shared with staff after the first payment certificate. Given this information, Baker wasted no time asking the auditor whether she would be revising her previous report as a matter of record, because in this report, it indicated there was no process in place to track costs. Connell said she would make a revision in light of the latest information. Baker never accepted this was a tracking issue,

he said, and like others, he still doesn't understand why council wasn't informed sooner. If council did know sooner, "I think there would've been less heartburn," said Deputy Mayor Roger McMurray. Coun. Brian Ostrander, too, believes if once the auditor was contacted and if council were informed, "We would not be here today." That time it took was the biggest concern, not that the funds weren't used for the project, said Ostrander. There were a lot of things underground not known about and the mapping was ancient, it's not like leaving a big hole in the ground would have been acceptable, he said. For Walas, there's no going backwards, he stressed. All people, council and staff included, make mistakes and the scope of the project never changed - it was the construction and materials

that changed, there were unforeseen challenges and this was an exercise to learn from, he said. A project management process report was also presented at the meeting, which detailed recommendations and procedures for better controls. Yes, council should have known sooner but at the end of the day, the work was needed, said Tadman. "And I agree, everybody makes mistakes and this is not any one person's fault," she said. In her report, Widdifield did also stress the municipality had a surplus in 2017 of $563,539.87. "We were not over budget for 2017, but had one project run over the approved cost," she said. "The municipality continues to be in a positive financial position." Ostrander did say he is confident the processes are in place and if followed, something like this will not happen again.

JOHN CAMPBELL jcampbell@metroland.com Brighton - Deputy Mayor Roger McMurray has resigned from the Brighton police services board, after being challenged by Mayor Mark Walas over comments he made at the board's meeting in April. McMurray had expressed concerns about "vulnerabilities" to an attack on pedestrians that could occur at a major outdoor event such as Applefest. He suggested special precautions might be warranted in response to 10 people being killed and 16 people injured in Toronto when a man in a van drove onto a sidewalk and mowed them down. McMurray said his comments were "food for thought" for the organizers of Applefest, saying it's best "to err on the side of caution." Walas quickly responded by downplaying the potential threat of mayhem, saying all those who are involved in the planning of Applefest, including the OPP and fire department, are "very proactive" in taking measures to ensure the safety of people attending the event. McMurray said in an interview he was disap-

pointed by how his suggestion was received. It was neither "untoward" nor meant to be "alarmist," he said. "I just wanted to do the right thing and it was taken the wrong way." The mayor's reaction and lack of support led him to resign. "I wanted the police services board to have the municipality speak with one voice so I stepped aside," McMurray said. He emailed his letter of resignation to board chair Derek Jeffreys on May 5 without providing a reason for his departure. Walas said he was "quite surprised" by McMurray's "unfortunate" decision, saying all

Walas said McMurray raising the issue of security at a police services board meeting "seemed a little premature," especially when there was no one from the OPP to respond to his concerns. Council was to decide on a replacement for McMurray when it met this week. The police services board has three meetings left before the municipal election in October.

SARAH HYATT shyatt@northumberlandnews.com Brighton - Due to renovations at 35 Alice St., there is currently no health unit water sampling collection site. The issue was brought forward to council recently via correspondence from a resident, where it was explained that Trenton is currently the closest for most of rural

council members put forward opposing views at different times over the course of a term. "I believe it's an overreaction." Jeffreys said he was "very, very disappointed" that McMurray chose to resign. "It came from left field." McMurray's assertion council should speak as one voice on the board, "I don't buy that at all," Jeffreys said. He took no issue with what was said at the meeting. "I didn't think that McMurray said anything out of line (or Walas). "It's much ado about nothing," Jeffreys said. "I'm satisfied with the yeoman's job the OPP do in policing the event. They do a terrific job." Besides, "there's no way you can prevent these (kinds of attacks) in advance. If we could, then clearly there would be no crime in this country at all." But "you can try to mitigate" the consequences should they occur, he added. Jeffreys said he saw "plenty of security" in place at last year's Applefest, in terms of preventing vehicular access to where people gather in the street.

Whose diabolical mind was it that designed the front seats of vehicles, leaving the narrowest of gaps between them and the centre console? The only function the opening reliably serves is to entrap house keys, pens and sundry food. Retrieving them is extremely difficult once they've landed in the nohands zone. Even when you've made a point of stopping the car to continue a frustrating recovery operation for a fugitive fry. And what twisted genius decided that fruit cups should be sealed with a membrane so sensitive to the touch that the containers invariably cough up their juice, no matter how delicately you try to peel back the cover? It gets worse. Car commercials on TV. Specifically, the full disclosure of an automaker's offer that appears at the bottom. Fine print is one thing but infinitesimal is another, which makes you wonder – was it bureaucracy or a corporation's legal department that insisted a deal's finer points be spelled out but in letters so tiny they can't be read. Yes, I'm sweating the small stuff. Which is no shape to be in with Ontario's electoral race having begun in earnest. You need a level head and

JOHN CAMPBELL Column an even temper when judging the performances of candidates in debates and on the campaign trail. You can't let the day's minor irritants play havoc with your mind in making what will be a really important decision – deciding which party will fail less in delivering on its promises, and thus deserving of our (lukewarm) support. You would think that parties should be required by law to make the same effort at disclosure as car manufacturers, and include in their TV ads disclaimers as to the limits reality places on their pledges to affect change. It's an acknowledgement you aren't likely to find in their platforms as set forth in pamphlets and on websites. It would be one more bugbear to bear, but a novel way for parties to engage voters, challenging them to pay close attention to what they're actually promising. Really close, as in six inches from the television screen with a magnifying glass in hand. It's the next best thing to putting democracy under the microscope. – John Campbell is a reporter with the Brighton Independent.

Some recommended reading for prospective council candidates Dear Editor: Community Matters Recommended reading for council candidates? The May 10 Independent's report "Councillor releases first book, talks politics and community" announcing Brian Ostrander's book Community Matters intrigued me to the point where I had to read it as soon as possible. There may be those that dismiss the book as an elaborate election pamphlet, particularly as Brian is a member of our current problematic council, but having read it, I believe it is a valuable primer on how

municipal governance is supposed to work, and I recommend it as preparatory reading for candidates in the 2017 municipal election. My only concern is it may be too late to influence needed change of Brighton's council. In the past two municipal elections Brighton has managed to elect a council that has done the exact opposite of many of the common sense tenets outlined in Brian's book. The current council has been particularly lax in not having an overall plan with priorities. Unfortunately, these negative behaviours have escalated to the point where potential new candidates may be dissuaded from putting their name forward, and like the previous election, we will have a slate of incumbents and angry "change" candidates that, if

elected, will continue the dysfunction. I hope that many of your capable readers are seriously considering putting their name forward for election. To them I say, please, folks, read Brian's book and recognize that politics doesn't have to be done the way of the current council. Put your name forward. Our community needs you and I can tell you from personal experience that it is a very satisfying occupation. Dave Cutler, Brighton

Make dental care an election issue Dear Editor: It's encouraging to hear Ontario's political parties promising to expand publicly-funded dental care to

cover more people. Currently, one in five Ontarians do not visit a dentist due to cost. Based on data from Ontario's health ministry, the Northumberland Oral Health Coalition found 351 residents in Northumberland - and 61,000 Ontarians visited hospital ERs in 2015 due to dental problems. All ER staff can do is to prescribe painkillers and antibiotics, since hospitals are not equipped to treat dental problems. At at least $513 per hospital visit, these ER trips cost our health-care system at least $180,000 locally and $31 million provincially for no treatment! During this Ontario election, ask candidates how their parties will fix this appalling gap in our health-care system. Fran Richardson Retired Dental Hygienist

Brighton's Own: Jackie of all trades

Bonnie Gruen has pretty much done it all in show business, Vic Schukov writes

northumberlandnews.com

VIC SCHUKOV For all practical purposes, Bonnie Gruen was born into the theatre. Her parents, both actors from Germany, immigrated to Canada in the 1950s and founded the Guelph Little Theatre, which exists to this day. "I was raised in the theatre by my parents, thrown onstage at four. My mother taught drama to youth. I did tons of theatre by the time I graduated high school." At 18, Gruen was accepted by Montreal's prestigious National Theatre School of Canada, where thousands audition from across the country but fewer than 20 get in annually. She completed the three-year program despite each student being judged yearly under the shadow of being dismissed. Upon graduating, she was hired immediately by the Young People's Theatre of Toronto, with no audition necessary. "I got my union cards for both film and television, and for two years I toured public schools in Ontario and Bermuda." In the late 1970s, her agent got her a regular gig on the popular TV show Polka Dot Door. From that came other shows like Party Game (with Jack Duffy, Dinah Christie and Billy Van) and Going Places. Being an inventive sort, Gruen never really lacked for work. "I am a practical person. I knew if I got steady work as a stand-in, I would get a regular paycheque, as opposed to struggling in the very competitive worlds of stage and film." She was a stand-in for such famous people as Kirstie Alley, Shirley MacLaine and Cybill Shep-

herd. After some work in feature films, her first TV stand-in work was in the series War of the Worlds. Here, she scored a bonus: She met husband Ron, a unionized driver of film stars. They have been together now for 29 years, and he still chauffeurs luminaries such as Matt Damon for films around Toronto. Gruen is what one may call a "Jackie of all trades": "I also sort of fell into stunt work, pardon the pun. My first stunt work was for the movie Quest for Fire (a caveman flick) in 1982, around the caves of Bruce Peninsula. We filmed for four weeks during a cold spring, filming barefoot. It won an Oscar that year for best makeup." She was all over the ice throughout her 30s, doing background work for such successful shows as Street

SARAH HYATT shyatt@northumberlandnews.com Brighton - If you're interested in seeing some of the "jewels of the forest" at Presqu'ile, you'll want to attend the Warblers and Whimbrels Weekend starting Saturday, May 19, say park staff. With spring here, this means the return of tensof-thousands of smaller birds and shorebirds that migrate through Presqu'ile while making their way north this time of year. "Warblers are often called the jewels of the forest for their varied and beautiful colours, but they can be a challenge to see," said David Bree, Presqu'ile's park naturalist and

senior natural heritage education leader. Park experts and volunteers will help attendees identify some of the 20-plus species likely present this weekend. On Saturday, May 19 and Sunday, May 20 activities start with an ultra-early bird walk at 6:30 a.m. Another walk will start at 10 a.m. The warblers will likely continue to be "crowd favourites" but the weekend is packed with activities so visitors can be introduced to some of the "most beautiful and sought-after birds." The walks start at the Lighthouse Centre. In-between, staff and volunteers will be around the lighthouse pointing out migrat-

ing birds. "The Friends [of Presqu'ile Park] invite everyone to share in this event - it makes for a great outing for those that appreciate nature, families and individuals alike," said Bree. At 2 p.m. and starting at the beach 2 parking lot, a guided walk to seek out shorebirds will take place. A guide with a spotting scope will help visitors to "get a good look at these fascinating creatures." With Lake Ontario water levels finally back in the normal range, park staffers are hopeful piping plovers may return. The plovers returned to Presqu'ile in 2016 and it was huge highlight for attendees of this event.

Dr. Suresh Appan & Associates

Prior to 2016, plovers last nested on Presqu'ile beaches in the early 1900s. The higher water levels last year meant the beaches were not ideal for the species. The longtime favourite bird-banding demonstration will also return, starting behind the park store at 8 a.m. and runs until noon. The activity is weather-dependent for birds' safety. The Lighthouse Centre and Friends' store will be open during the event and this will be final chance to enter the Bushnell optics raffle. The draw is slated for 4 p.m. Sunday for the scope-tripod package. The Friends' will host another barbecue fundraiser both days.

12 CRIME

Police asking for help with Brighton break-and-enter investigation Brighton - Northumberland Police Service are asking for the public's help following a break-in on Sandpiper Way in Brighton. Police are now saying they believe a man and woman spotted in the area at the time of the break-in may have been working together to commit the crime and have released a description of the male. Back on April 29, 2018 a resident on Sandpiper Way contacted police to report a break-in sometime between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. that day. "Entry was gained through an apparently unlocked rear sliding door,"

said Const. Steve Bates. "The suspect stole a quantity of jewelry from a bedroom and appeared not to disturb or enter any other area of the house." Police report they were advised of a suspicious vehicle in the area at the time of the break-in. At about 10:30 a.m., a male was observed to be sitting in an older grey Buick sedan (possibly a Regal) near Sandpiper Way and Nesbitt Drive, said Bates. A resident reported that the male exited the car and "urinated on the front lawn" and when this resident confronted the male,

he drove off, he said. Investigators have also since learned that a female was seen getting out of this car and walking between two nearby homes. "Police believe that the pair was working together and that the male was waiting nearby for the female to commit the crime." The male is described as 50-60 years old, is about five-foot-six and about 160 pounds, with an olivetanned skin tone and dark hair. He was wearing white cotton pants and a dark shirt. No description of the female is available, say police.

The Northumberland detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police is asking that anyone with information on this crime call the Brighton detachment at

613-475-1313 or the toll free number 1-888-310-1122. Police remind residents that should you wish to remain anonymous, you may call the Peterborough-

Northumberland Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477, where you may be eligible for a cash reward of up to $2,000 and not have to appear in court.

Wellington was to play the Steinbach Pistons Monday night, and finish up the preliminary round with games against the Chilliwack Chiefs Tuesday night and the Wenatchee Wild Thursday night. The national Jr. A hockey championship game will be broadcast on TSN this Sunday, May 20, starting at 5 p.m.

niece from Grafton will attend the launch. In the mid-1990s, the manuscript was donated to the archives in Ottawa and this is where Seguin found it by accident. He was doing research for his 2015 book, For Want of a Lighthouse: Building the Lighthouses of Eastern Lake Ontario 1828-1914. At this time, he found a sketch of a lighthouse and had to learn more because there are so few images of Ontario's lighthouses from that early on, he said. With his book launch, Seguin will host an "illustrated history talk." It will mostly be about Baines and the yacht crew when they visited Presqu'ile, he said. There are images of Presqu'ile in the book, including one painting featuring the crew and the other of the lighthouse. It's quite unique because it's 23 years after it was built and as far as Seguin knows, there are no earlier images other than the architectural drawings, he said. The event starts at 7 p.m. and admission is free. Seguin will sign books and Kerr and her husband Craig will be on hand helping with the event.

JOHN CAMPBELL jcampbell@metroland.com Trent Hills - A Trent Hills man was killed when his motorcycle collided with a post and guard wires on County Road 24 shortly before 2 p.m. on May 6. Northumberland OPP said the victim, a 31-year-old Trent Hills man, wasn't wearing a helmet when he lost control of his motorcycle on a corner near the hamlet of Dartford. A coroner pronounced him dead at the scene and ordered an autopsy be completed in Kingston. The name of the victim was not released. Technical collision investigators and reconstructionists assisted detachment officers at the scene. The investigation into the cause of the collision is continuing.

Brighton - A wellknown historian and author will visit Lighthouse Books on Thursday, May 24 and hopes to help the Presqu'ile Point Lighthouse Preservation Society. "While promoting his new book, he's also going to be giving us a hand ..." said an excited Ruth Kerr, a volunteer director for the society. Many residents may already know the name Marc Seguin, as this isn't his first book. Residents may also recall the Prince Edward County resident appearing in a video talking about the Presqu'ile lighthouse or Seguin's work with the heritage-preservation organization, Save Our Lighthouses. Between the author's royalties and Lighthouse Books stepping up, all in the society should get about $7 for each book sold, said Seguin. For Seguin, he thought this is a good way to do a little fundraising and it is a great thing Lighthouse Books is doing by hosting and donating to the restoration, he said. At the event, he'll launch his latest book, The Cruise of the Breeze: The Journal, Art and Life of a Victorian Soldier in Canada. "It's really the journal of this young man who came to Canada in the 1860s," said Seguin. Henry Edward Baines was a British soldier dispatched to Canada. In 1863, while stationed in Toronto, he toured Lake Ontario on a private yacht, the Breeze. It was a more peaceful time then, his duties were fairly limited and often these men were relatively wealthy, said Seguin. This man, he loved to paint, he was quite the accomplished watercolour painter and he loved to sail, he said. Today, Baines' paintings are in the Royal Ontario Museum and the Art Gal-

lery of Hamilton. Seguin tracked down hundreds of his pieces and bets there's still more out there, likely scattered worldwide, in places like Australia and the United States. He did some 50-watercolour paintings while in Quebec, some were auctioned off to Boston, then New York and New Mexico and Seguin helped raise funds to repatriate 20 of those to Canada. They've been donated to the Ottawa archives. During his 1863 journey, he stopped all across Lake Ontario, including in Presqu'ile Bay and along the way did pen-and-ink sketches and paintings of places he visited, said Seguin. These images, as well as some from Cobourg, Prince Edward County and Consecon are shared in Seguin's book. Baines never did make it home; he died "a tragic death" in the Great Fire of Quebec in 1866. His manuscript however, did go back to family in England and later found its way back to Canada after Baines' sister immigrated here and it was passed down through generations. Seguin is actually hoping Baines' great-grand
