Phase one, more than half of the 43 acres to be developed, will make 34 of 50 lots available and, in the process, make Brighton a bigger player in attracting companies to the area with the offering of investmentready industrial land. As well, full flexibility is being offered in the lot layout, with more regular lot shapes and the ease of joining the lots to suit the needs of prospective buyers. Purchase calls the ability to offer smaller lots a “competitive advantage” because it’s not the standard in the surrounding area. The committee also viewed a sneak peek of a new video that will be used during the launch to promote the new industrial space. “(Crowe Productions of Picton) have a really strategic framework they use to ensure, when you create these videos, they’re not just being posted online and no one is seeing them,” said Purchase. “They have a plan to get the video out to the people you want to see it.” A Brighton-wide collaborative marketing campaign, announced in November, is looking at a late May kick off.

Currently, the media list includes four radio stations and five print publications to target the region. The campaign would run for a full year and realize a $140,000 value with an $80,000 investment from municipal coffers and businesses buying in. “With the municipality taking the lead, we can get not-forprofit rates, which businesses can’t get,” explained Purchase. “With the investment from this campaign, the primary focus is to make sure the region is aware of what we’re doing in Brighton and why they should come here.” As well, Purchase revealed plans for a new sub-committee from the group to oversee commercial investment. “What I foresee is this committee helping compile a list of vacancies and monitoring that list,” she said. “That way, when we get inquiries, we would have a full list of properties readily available, for lease and for sale.” Purchase also recommended a $2,000 communications strategy package from an outside consultant. The package was approved by the committee.

OPP responds to municipal policing concerns By Ray Yurkowski

Brighton – There are things you should know about Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) municipal policing says Superintendent Rick Philbin in a press release issued last week. “There is currently a healthy and important debate underway about the cost of policing in Ontario and future sustainability,” he wrote. “Part of that discussion involves how the OPP delivers police services to 324 municipalities and our current billing model, which is under review.” The provincial Auditor General recommended simplifying the costing and billing methods now in place to “address the issues that result in municipalities paying different rates.” A new billing model proposed for 2015 will see an estimated base cost of $260 per household charged along with a cost for calls for service. “OPP-policed municipalities that currently pay lower than $300 per household should see their policing costs rise; municipalities that currently pay more than $400 per household should see their policing costs drop,” notes Philbin. “Let’s be honest, some municipalities have enjoyed unrealistically low policing costs with the OPP for many years,

while others have paid much higher per household due to a complex billing process. Addressing this discrepancy is the right thing to do, although we acknowledge that the transition for the municipalities who will experience rising costs will be difficult. The Ontario government is considering ways to lessen the financial impact during the transition to a new billing model.” This year, Brighton’s 4,968 households, as calculated by the Ontario Municipal Partnership Fund (OMPF) allocation notice, are paying more than $390. But, says municipal financial manager Linda Widdifield, “the unknown factor” is the cost of calls for service. “We have to base our budgets on the OPP estimates,” she said. “But when we get a reconciliation payment, council has been proactive by putting that money in a fund so when we get hit with higher increases, we have that tool.” Brighton Deputy Mayor Mike Vandertoorn, who marks his 17th year in municipal politics in 2014, recalls when the policing contract was less than $1 million only a decade ago. This year, it’s doubled at just under $1.95 million. By law, all municipalities must provide policing services to their constitu-

ents. One way is contracting services from the OPP under Section 10 of the Police Services Act (PSA), but a municipality may also establish a police service; enter into an agreement with one or more other municipal councils to constitute a joint police service board; enter into an agreement with one or more councils to amalgamate their police services; or contract services from an adjacent police service (a police service that shares a political boundary with the contracting municipality). If none of these choices are exercised, policing services are provided by default by the OPP under Section 5.1 of the PSA. But, says Philbin, provincial regulations require full and fair cost recovery from municipalities for OPP services. “The OPP cost recovery formula resulted in a reduction of one per cent in billing for direct operating expenses (gas, uniforms, computers, etc.) from 2010 to 2013,” he wrote. “This was a significant accomplishment compared to other police services which are also struggling with rising costs in a time of restraint. I must acknowledge that uniform salaries, which are not part of the Cost Recovery Formula, are 80 to 85 per cent of the overall costs charged to

OPP-policed municipalities. After two years without receiving a general increase in wages (2012, 2013), OPP officers received an increase of 8.55 per cent in 2014 to raise the salary of an OPP Provincial Constable to be equal to that of the highest paid police service in the province. The OPP will have to recover these costs in the municipalities it polices. “Regardless of any changes to billing and the wage raise in 2014, the

OPP remains the most cost-effective policing option for many municipalities in Ontario. OPP costs, on average, are less than half of the average cost of municipal police services in the province (based on OPP and Ministry of Finance data). While the per-household cost of policing can vary widely under the current billing model, our low per household cost average tells us that the OPP is doing a really good job of being cost-effective and efficient.”

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Another birthday in an American prison for this Canadian lighten himself concerning the many clinical trials which prove cannabis to be a bronchodilator which could actually be beneficial in treating his asthma. See: http://www.ncbi.nlm. nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1429361/Â as one example by the British Pharmacological Society from as far back as 1978. As with so many of Harperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s statements the information he feeds Canadians about marijuana is patently false. Unfortunately he has our tax dollars to use to force his many falsehoods down our throats in wave after wave of advertising at our expense. Tell a lie often enough and people will eventually think it must be true. I cannot imagine any Canadians who took the time to consider the facts in this situation who would want to see Marc Emery spend his birthday in an American prison. Truth is most Canadians have no idea who Marc Emery is. Our daily lives are too busy figuring out how

Dear Editor, bour.

ment of the United States signed release papers which would allow Marc to return to Canada to serve the rest of his sentence near his wife and family. Stephen Harper refuses to sign it on behalf of Canada. Thus Marc stays in an American prison for his birthday again in 2014. This situation makes me very ashamed to be a Canadian. It displays the depths of cruelty to which our Prime Minister is willing to descend in order to force his totally warped world view on the rest of us. His ignorance about the beneficial qualities of this natural plant and its potential to assist mankind on many fronts is truly breathtaking. When Justin Trudeau announced he had used marijuana on rare occasions Stephen Harper said he never has tried marijuana because he is asthmatic. If Harper spent as much time researching the truth as he did with his hands on the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem a few weeks ago he could en-

Dear Editor, Today, February 13, 2014, is Marc Emeryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 56th birthday. He is spending this birthday as a Canadian citizen in a small cement box decorated with iron bars in an American prison in Yazoo City, Mississippi. Marc is a political prisoner who was put there through a collusion between the Harper government and the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) of the United States of America. As an outspoken proponent for the legalization of marijuana, to the tune of contributing over $4 million to the cause worldwide, they wanted him silenced. So they threw him into an American prison for five years. The facts are that the American prosecutor in Marcâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s case has now publicly stated he is in favour of legalization of marijuana. Washington and Colorado citizens have voted to legalize marijuana and authorities in those two states have recently done so. Last summer the Justice Depart-


Connected to your community OPINION Israel: Nuclear Hypocrisy Editorial – When Mordechai Vanunu, a humble Israeli technician who worked for years at Israel’s secret nuclear site at Dimona, spilled the beans about Israel’s nuclear weapons in 1986, very bad things happened to him. He was lured from safety in England for an Italian holiday by a woman who was an Israeli secret agent, drugged and kidnapped from Italy by other Israeli agents, and imprisoned for eighteen years (eleven Gwynne Dyer of them in solitary confinement). When Avraham Burg, the former speaker of the Israeli parliament, said last month that Israel has both nuclear and chemical weapons (you know, like the nuclear weapons that Iran must not have and the chemical weapons that Syria must give up), nothing bad happened to him at all. He is protected by the Important Persons Act, the unwritten law that gets powerful and well-connected people off the hook in every country. They didn’t even go after Burg when he said that Israel’s long-standing policy of “non-disclosure (never confirm or deny that it has nukes) was “outdated and childish.” But even ten years after Vanunu finished serving his long jail sentence, he is not allowed to leave Israel, go near any foreign embassy, airport or border crossing, or speak to any journalist or foreigner. The Israeli government’s excuse for all this is that he may still know secrets he might reveal, but that is nonsense. Vanunu hasn’t seen Dimona or talked to anybody in the Israeli nuclear weapons business for 30 years. What drives his tormentors is sheer vindictiveness, and he may well go on being punished for his defiance until he dies – while Avraham Burg lives out his life undisturbed and offers occasional pearls of wisdom to the public.       So here are the “secrets” that Vanunu and Burg revealed, in rather more detail than Burg chose to give and in a more upto-date form than Vanunu could give from personal knowledge. Israel has a minimum of eighty and a maximum of four hundred nuclear weapons, those limits being based on calculations of the amount of fissile material that it has enriched to

weapons grade. The best guess is that the total is around two hundred warheads, most of them two-stage thermonuclear devices (hydrogen bombs). At least some dozens are “tactical” weapons designed to be fired by 175 mm and 203 mm artillery pieces at ranges of 40-70 km. The remainder are meant to be delivered by missiles or aircraft, and Israel maintains a full “triad” of delivery systems: land-based missiles, sea-launched missiles, and aircraft. The missiles are mostly Jericho II medium-range ballistic missiles, which can reach all of Europe and most of western Asia. Since 2008 Jericho III intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) have also been entering service, with a range that would allow Israel to strike any inhabited point on the planet except some Pacific islands. Both can carry a one-megaton warhead. Why such remarkably long ranges, when Israel’s avowed enemies are all relatively close to hand? One speculation is that this is meant to encourage caution in other nuclear states (Pakistan? North Korea?) that might at some future time be tempted to supply nuclear weapons to Israel’s near enemies. The maritime leg of the triad is highly accurate cruise missiles that are launched from underwater by Israel’s Germanbuilt Dolphin-class submarines. These missiles constitute Israel’s “secure second-strike” capability, since it is extremely unlikely that even the most successful enemy surprise attack could locate and destroy the submarines. And finally, there are American-made F-15 and F-16 strike aircraft that can also carry nuclear bombs. The United States did not help Israel to develop nuclear weapons in the first place (France did that), and even now Washington does not really approve of Israel’s nukes, although it tolerates them in the interest of the broader alliance. But why, after all these years, does Israel still refuse to acknowledge that it has them? The only plausible answer is: to avoid embarrassing the United States in ways that would make it restrict its arms exports to Israel. But realistically, how likely is that to happen? The US Congress will ensure that Israel goes on getting all the money and arms it wants no matter what it says about its nukes, and it is high time to end this ridiculous dance around the truth.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

The federal budget and who benefitted Dear Editor Who got hit and who breezed through in this last federal budget? Public servants, the whipping boys of the Harper government certainly took yet another hit, more layoffs, cuts to pensions etc. Odd that I always considered MPs and MPPs to be “public servants” Obviously they do not, as there are no cuts to their gold-plated pensions or any layoffs. I always think it’s nice when we share the pain, don’t you? In a recent study of the European Parliament after members’ salaries had been equalized, those members who took a reduction in income actually worked harder, attending more committee meetings and issuing more reports, asking more questions etc. Those who received an increase did less work, which proves that a cut in an MP’s salary would increase their work ethic. Unfortunately the golden rule is “they who have the gold, make the rules.” The Conservatives, sitting on a $12 million war chest, with lots more to come when needed, changed the rules again with a hit specifically at the NDP. The only situation in which the NDP has outpaced the Tories in raising funds was from the grave, $10 for every $1 for the Tories. It appears that Conservatives expect a return on investment, whereas NDP sup-

porters want the good fight to continue after they are gone. So those donations have been capped at $1,200 maximum. On the other side, phone calls during an election to remind supporters to renew their memberships are exempt from spending limits. When you have more money to spend than the law allows, change the rules so lots of phone calls are coming in the next election. As Canada watches its social programs cut, postal delivery door to door cut, (lineups at the post office ready for privatization), retirement age increased, healthcare downloaded to the provinces and demonization of the labour movement, we should consider how far down this road we can travel before the corporations running the show simply dispense with the façade of democracy altogether. In Alberta, centre of the universe for the Harper government, regulation for the environment, fisheries, forestry and water has been privatized. The new entity is now totally funded by the industries it is supposed to regulate. Can the rest of Canada hold out against this new modern improved model? Paul Whittaker, Gilmour

If it’s broken, estimate Dear Editor It seems that the time has come to put my two cents worth into the so-called smart meter controversy. Wyley Canuck is correct when he says that smart metering is anything but smart, however his reasoning is wrong.  He starts by blaming the problem on overpaid Hydro One staff, but he fails to single out only those that brought smart metering to its present sad state.  The blame lies squarely on their shoulders and those of senior management who failed to halt this ill-conceived scheme.  And much of the blame must also be shared by the Liberal government under Dalton McGuinty who endorsed this madness in his rush to bring forth a very imperfect “green” energy policy. Wyley suggests that the meters are deliberately “fixed” to overcharge customers.  This is nothing but nonsense.  These meters are very easy to test, and I’ve already tested mine and two others and found them to be well within the accuracy required by the federal government.  Those federal standards also prohibit tampering by force of  law, and any attempt to do so would put Hydro One and the provincial Liberals in an untenable position.  Once the accuracy of the meter is proven, then simply by keeping a record of the digital meter reading on a monthly basis, you can check the total kilowatt hours on your monthly bill against your own monthly readings. The real problem with smart metering is that it serves no useful purpose.  For years Hydro has always kept records of its daily load variations  on paper chart recorders, magnetic tapes, and now with modern digital systems.  There is no sensible reason to keep track of exactly how much energy each individual family uses.  Sure, we’re told that we can adjust our energy usage to take advantage of off-peak rates, but the real truth is that our usage is dictated by daily needs that are largely beyond our control.  Few, if any, can set their own hours of work, and must arrange their schedule around their work hours, school needs, etc.   And how much is really saved?  For those in many rural areas where the system is not operational, you still pay a flat rate calculated on the basis of a time-weighted average of the off-peak, mid-peak, and on-peak rates.  No time-of-day savings for those in that situation!  Then there are those with third party energy contracts.  Their per-kWh price for Hydro is also a flat rate that is one or two tenths of a cent below the maximum, on-peak rate.  We actually have one neighbour with such a contract who uses less Hydro than we do, but pays substantially more because he can’t take advantage of time-of-day pricing.  That not-so-little detail was carefully left out  of any Liberal propaganda praising the introduction of smart metering.  I have yet to work it out, but I suspect that, with the new rates, the time-of-day savings may not be as great as Hydro would have us believe once you take into account all the extras that are added onto the bill that are independent of the time of use.  Keep in mind that your real cost per kWh is not the price that Hydro claims on your bill, but it’s actually the total charge in dollars shown on the bill divided by the total number of kWh also shown on the bill.  Those pesky “extras” just can’t be ignored. The cost of the original system was bad enough, running in the order of $1 billion, and it’s still not finished.  Now one would have thought that, with all this data coming in, Hydro would have included the cost for a data handling centre, but no they apparently did not.  They came back to the table to ask for more money, $250 million to be exact, to build a data processing centre.  The reason?  Well it seems that in the mad rush to jump on the “green” bandwagon, the various public utilities neglected to select a common digital language for their local municipal metering systems.  It now appears that this $250 million data centre is designed as a sort of digital “United Nations” headquarters where all these various metering “languages” can be translated into some common system so that energy distribution data of Hydro and all the various public utilities can be coordinated.  Had the proper thought been given to this coordination problem, it’s very likely that extra $250 million might not have been needed.  Hydro One has chosen to ignore the old adage: “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”, but when it’s someone else’s money they’re playing with, they tend to get careless.   Bob Johnson, Stirling

The weekend show continues from 1-4 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday (February 22 and 23), when the community centre will be transformed into a giant local history museum. Organizations and groups taking part in this year’s event have been encouraged to focus on the people who shaped Brighton’s history. There’ll be artefacts, demonstrations and displays depicting a large cast of local characters including Brighton business baron Sam Nesbitt, blacksmith Sam Hazelwood and local apple industry

News - Quinte West - The new chair and vice-chair of the Lower Trent Conservation (LTC) board are women. “I don’t believe we have ever had a woman as chair,” said general manager Glenda Rodgers. Pat Westrope, representative of the Township of Cramahe, is the new chair and Mary Tadman, representative of the Municipality of Brighton, is vice chair. Westrope has been a member of the board of directors for the past seven years and vice-chair since 2011. Tadman has been on the board for six years, from 2004 to 2006 and from 2011 to present. LTC’s area of jurisdiction covers 2121 square kilometres (819 square miles) stretching from Grafton to Quinte West and from Lake Ontario to Rice Lake. The area includes all or portions of seven municipalities. The tenmember board of directors includes the following municipal representatives for 2014: Township of Alnwick/Haldimand - Joan Stover, Municipality of Brighton - Craig Kerr, Mary Tadman, Municipality of Centre Hastings - Larry Mitz, Township of Cramahe - Patricia Westrope, City of Quinte West - Jim Har-

rison, Jim Alyea, Township of Stirling-Rawdon - Wilfred Shier, Municipality of Trent Hills - Kim MacNeil, Bill Thompson. The 2014 budget was approved by the board at the meeting. Approximately 46 per cent of the $2,727,500 budget will be provided by the provincial and federal governments to coordinate programs related to the cleanup of the Bay of Quinte and the protection of sources of water used for municipal drinking water. The seven local municipalities will provide $774,271 to support the watershed management program, representing approximately 29 per cent of the funding outlined in the 2014 budget and business plan. The slight increase in the levy was as follows: AlnwickHaldimand went up from $77,268 in 2013 to $77,582 in 2014. Brighton went from $122,529 to $123,961. Trent Hills went from $118,537 to $124,735. Centre Hastings went from $17,321 to $17,963. Quinte West went from $326,316 to $337,737. StirlingRawdon went from $27,789 to $29,577. The total levy went from $753,095 to $774,271. Glenda Rodgers told the board at its annual meeting February

13 that staff continues to monitor weather, ice, snow and water level conditions as part of its flood forecasting and warning program. “There have been no major problems with frazil ice or flooding on the Trent River this winter, to date,” she said. “The snow pack continues to build [about five inches of water equivalent]. This could result in a spring freshet, depending on the time of the thaw and temperature and rainfall amounts.”

Challenges facing farmers today and tomorrow Greater public awareness of agricultural challenges could help the industry in the future.

Many people have an outdated view of a farm as a small, family-owned and operated parcel of land where livestock is raised in open pens and crops are hand-harvested when ripe. The reality is that modern-day farms have had to overhaul operations to meet demand and remain competitively priced while adapting to the ever-changing ways technology infiltrates all parts of life. Each of these factors present obstacles for todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s farmers.

Technology Rural farming communities are expected to make an effort to integrate modern technology into an industry that has been around for centuries. But such a transition in rural areas, where communications systems may not be as up-to-date as those in urban areas, is not always so easy.

According to the Manitoba Rural Adaptation Council, a shift from a resource-based to an information-based economy, compounded by the rapid introduction and expansion of new technology in the workplace, has altered farm operation and the skills in demand. Older workers who have been schooled in one way of agriculture may have a significant impact on labor supply and the vitality of farming as a career. Younger adults who are knowledgeable in technology may no longer seek out agricultural careers.

Decrease in farming as an occupation

Cobourg:

The United States Environmental Protection Agency says that only about 960,000 Americans claim farming as their principal occupation. As that figure has dwindled, the average age of farmers continues to rise, as the Bureau of Labor Statistics notes that roughly 40 percent of the farmers in this country are 55 years old or older. This has led to concerns about the longterm health of family farms.

Environmental concerns Many farmers have come under scrutiny for how farming impacts the environment. A growing emphasis on sustainability and conservation has led many people to protest certain farming practices. Protesters claim that certain practices, such as raising livestock, can pollute water, while the use of fertilizers and chemical pesticides is bad for the environment. Many farmers, however, have altered their methods to be more environmentally friendly and self-sustainable in the process. Climate change is another environmental issue farmers must deal with. Strong storms and severe droughts have made farming even more challenging.

A Special Thank You To All The Farmers For Your Loyalty And Dedication

Financial fall-out

Though it can be easy for those who do not work in the agricultural industry to overlook the struggles facing todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s agricultural professionals, a greater understanding of those struggles and the challenges that lay ahead can benefit the industry and its employees down the road. 10 Brighton Independent - Thursday, February 20, 2014

Further complicating matters is competition from corporations and international food producers who have made it difficult for family farmers to turn a significant profit. Many family farmers rely on loans and lines of credit to survive, but thanks to changes in the financial sector that saw banks become less willing to extend lines of credit, some farmers are facing bankruptcy.

RICK NORLOCK, MP

The ongoing recession of the last half-decade has also affected farmers. In November of 2012, the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics indicated that the unemployment rate within the agriculture, forestry, fishing, and hunting industries was at 13.6 percent, far higher than the national unemployment rate. As a result, many farm families have found themselves stuck between a rock and a hard place, as rising costs for equipment and technology are being coupled with decreasing profits and rising unemployment.


Lower Trent Conservation deals with wetlands and dogs

News - Quinte West - Janet Noyes, manager Watershed Science and Services, presented a plan review program update to the Lower Trent Conservation board at its annual meeting on February 13. She said there have been conflicts with landowners regarding wetlands and they need to update their policies. “We need more flexibility for small wetlands,” she said. Jim Harrison agreed, “Sometimes the definition of a wetland doesn’t fit.” Wilfred Shier said he was concerned that wetlands are put on the map and people don’t know about it. He said some are man-made for drainage. People are

being told they have to pay for a study. “This needs to be more workable,” he said. Janet Noyes said wetlands are a living ecosystem. Mary Tadman said she likes the idea of a compromise and felt that one solution is for the landowner to make a contribution to a wetland fund. Kim MacNeil said, “I’m leery of that. It’s an easy out.” Noyes agreed, “It’s a slippery slope.” Craig Kerr said for a small wetland they use cash in lieu of parkland and build up a fund. “It gets rid of an irritant with development in the community.” Glenda Rodgers said the issue does

come up occasionally, but they never really called it compensation. They have had discussions over small wetlands, like one acre. Jim Alyea said he has had a war with the MNR for years on a description of wetlands. “There were no cattails or mud, just water lapping on the shoreline,” he said. “We need to make sure this is fair and reasonable.” The board approved staff to develop draft policies. Glenda Rodgers also presented a report on enforcement of Conservation Authorities Act Section 29 Regulations in response to concerns being raised over dogs off leash in conservation lands.

The board approved the hiring of R. Bruce Way, Frontier Security Services, Belleville. Way has been a Provincial Offences Act prosecutor for ten years and currently prosecutes offences for some local municipalities and Quinte West Animal Control. He personally trains bylaw enforcement officers. Lower Trent staff proposed that the officers focus on the conservation areas that have been problematic, with occasional visits to other areas if

Ontario One Call service agreement to streamline requests

News - Quinte West - Public Works has approved an agreement with Ontario One Call for the delivery of Call Centre services for “locate requests” for municipal infrastructure. “It will be easier and safer for people,” said Matt Tracey, manager of Water and Wastewater services. He told the Public Works and Environmental Services committee that the GIS staff gets 2,000 requests a year to locate services such as Bell, gas, phone and Hydro, before digging can begin. “This is to reduce risk to damage of the lines,” he explained. The Ontario One Call requires that all utility owners must be registered. This law will ensure that a single call from excavators, contractors or the residents reaches the Utility Locate Service

Provider to perform the locates. “The role of Ontario One Call is to notify all registered owners of underground facilities within the vicinity of the planned excavation area to provide the local service,” Tracey explained. He said it will streamline the process. “People call Ontario One Call and they call us,” he said. The city must be fully registered and operating by June 18, 2014. Starting in January, 2015, there will be a charge of $1.60 per notification. It is expected the city will have about 3,700 notifications annually and will incur costs of over $6,000 a year. This may increase as more members and excavators become compliant with the legislation. Currently, locates are completed by city staff. By entering into the agreement, all locate requests will be co-or-

necessary. Duration would be three times a week, four hours each time, targeting key times for a period of six months, starting as soon as conditions warrant. After six months, staff would assess the impacts on the enforcement efforts and future requirements. “Staff is of the opinion that action must be taken to address safety issues related to large dogs at large on our conservation areas,” Rodgers said. “We have tried everything. We have to take action.”

dinated by the call centre and directed to appropriate city staff for completion. Ontario One Call is available 365 days a year to process locate requests, 24 hours a day. This is expected to reduce the damage of water, sewer and storm water infrastructure, street light power supply wires, accidents and injuries to the public and employees and potentially reduce costs associated with employees. Don Kuntze commented, “It will cost more to dig it up and fix it if it’s damaged.” Chuck Naphan asked about cross bores locates with Union Gas. Matt Tracey said a system is in place. All contractors are on One Call. “Once they are in the database we won’t have a problem again,” he said.

Batawa Seniors Unlimited hear about Crohn’s and Colitis News - Batawa - Jim Webster spoke from the heart when he talked to Batawa Seniors Unlimited recently. He was talking about Crohn’s and Colitis. “I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease when I was 19 years old,” he said. “I had symptoms since puberty.” Jim had been misdiagnosed as being mildly lactose intolerant, having celiac disease or Irritable Bowel Syndrome. “There is so much confusion and lack of education, even among health care professionals,” he said. Fortunately, he grew up with an extremely supportive family. He was hospitalized for one year. He said it was very hard when people kept asking the same question: “How are you feeling?” His answer was always, “I’m fine.” “My being sick was the only thing

people knew about me,” he said. “I did not want to be defined by that.” He said, like himself, many people suffer in silence. There are no public role models, no Michael J. Fox, no one to speak out about the illness. There were only two well-known people, hockey players Fleury and Courson, who admitted they had it, but the news did not focus on that. “All people know about Crohn’s and Colitis is that it causes diarrhea,” he said. Jim says he has sympathy for those sufferers who self-medicate, or take marijuana to escape. Unfortunately, there is no information available about what relieves symptoms. “With Crohn’s you are always in pain,” he said. “I wouldn’t wish this on my worst enemy.”

He said there is no proper support for people with the disease. He feels a lot of unresolved anger and has had setbacks in his career and personal relationships. In Kingston there is a group that meets to share similar stories but it is not really a support group. “This is a closet disease,” he said. “It is shrouded in silence.” He added that Canada has one of the highest incidences in the world, costing the country millions in healthcare. “Crohn’s and Colitis is the third most expensive to treat, after heart disease and cancer,” he said. He noted he spends $30,000 a year in prescriptions. The emotional suffering is also devastating, including lack of self worth and fear of intimacy. The risk of getting colorectal cancer is 47 per cent higher

as well. “It’s embarrassing to talk about,” he admitted. “There is a lack of public understanding. We need awareness to help employers understand. I can’t imagine being in low end retail where your bathroom breaks are monitored. The old mentality doesn’t work well with this disease.” He said the only fund raising is done through M&M barbeques in May and the Gutsy Walk in June as the largest corporate sponsors. “We need to find more ways to fund research,” he said. Jim notes that more people are hearing about digestive disorders through hot topics like gluten-free diets and taking probiotics in yogurt or pills. “Eating healthy has no affect on Crohn’s disease,” he said. “But overall

it will help your general health.” He added it is not true that researchers are working toward a cure. “The harsh reality is that everyone with this disease will likely die from it or complications from it,” he stated. “There is no magic pill. It can’t be cured.” He said the immune system attacks the digestive track as a foreign invader. “You plan your life around trips to the bathroom, doctors and medications,” he said. Jim hopes more people learn about the disease so that it loses its social stigma. The Batawa Seniors Unlimited thanked Jim for his talk and gave him a cheque for $200 to go toward the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of Canada. R0012557563

Up to 40,000 cardiac arrests occur each year in Canada. That’s one cardiac arrest every 12 minutes. Without rapid and appropriate treatment, most of these cardiac arrests will result in death. Thousands of lives could be saved through public access to automated external defibrillators. As many as 85% of all cardiac arrests occur in homes and public places (Vaillancourt & Stiell, 2004). After more than 12 minutes of ventricular fibrillation, the survival rate from cardiac arrest is less than 5% (Hazinski et al, 2004). For every 1 minute delay in defibrillation, the survival rate of a cardiac arrest victim decreases by 7% to 10% (Larsen et al, 1993).

Maple syrup season off to dripping start By Jack Evans

Lifestyles – Belleville – European explorers discovered many wonderful things when they first came to North America more than 500 years ago. One that remains a lasting treasure to this day is maple sap, or “sweet water” as native Americans called it, which later refined into a syrup and then a hard sugar. Aboriginal knowledge of this “first sweet taste of spring” was honoured and recalled at the traditional “first tapping” to signal the start of a new harvest, arranged by the Quinte Maple Syrup Producers at the sugar bush of Terry and Vicki Gervais in a huge 400-plus acres sugar bush in northern Tyendinaga Township. Close to 50 people, the Gervais family, friends, neighbours and fellow maple syrup producers attended the mid-day ceremony for which Tyendinaga Reeve and Hastings County Warden Rick Phillips drilled the ceremonial first tap hole. They inserted the tap, and, with the help of a young family friend member, hung a colourful old-fashioned sap bucket. An extra surprise for the crowd was that within seconds of being drilled, after a bitter cold night and a relentless winter, a small quantity of sap started to drip out. Adding to the occasion was a native ceremony of thanks conducted by David and Kimberley Maracle of the Tyendi-

naga Territory Mohawks, which included some native songs. Around a cozy campfire, Kimberley read a litany of thanks to the forest and trees, waters and fishes, plants and animals, the four winds, “brother sun” and “grandmother moon,” (the leader of women) and finally the Great Creator. Each section of the litany ended with a sprinkle of native herbs into the fire and the words: “n’ guathee gura,” meaning “of one mind,” she explained. She also explained that the native system has 13 months, based on the lunar cycle, and that the current month is called “sweet water month.” While she sang and played the tomtom, husband David played a traditional wooden native flute. Following the official drilling and tapping, Chris Koopmans of Waupoos area, president of the Quinte Local, Ontario Maple Syrup Producers, presented a plaque to Terry Gervais in recognition of his family’s hosting of this year’s event. The family also prepared a sumptuous lunch of pancakes, beans, sausages and maple syrup. Gervais quipped that the last time his bush was host for the event, the Maracles also took part and “That was one of the best crops we had.” Syrup producers attending agreed that this year’s season is likely to be late because of deep snow and prolonged

cold compared to many past years. Gervais also hinted at what might pose a special problem for this year’s sap run. In recent weeks, a small herd of elk has made its way down from the Bancroft area and ensconced themselves in his sugar bush, nibbling on hay supplies for his livestock. “I was pretty excited about seeing them at first,” he said. “I called in the Ministry of Natural Resources and they came and checked them out. But now I’m worrying that these large animals, especially once the males grow horns, could cause a lot of damage to my sap lines.” Four-year-old Tavish McFayden of Toronto, a friend of the Gervais family, helped Tyendinaga Reeve Rick Phillips hang a colourful sap bucket as part of a ceremonial first tapping of the new maple syrup season. The event, arranged through the Quinte Maple Syrup Producers, was held on the sprawling Tyendinaga sugar bush owned by Terry and Vicky Gervais. Photo: Jack Evans

Prizes up for grabs at Maple Syrup Festival Juried Art and Photography show By Sue Dickens

News – Warkworth – The window of opportunity is closing with one day remaining for artists and photographers to submit their entries in this year’s popular 14th annual Maple Syrup Festival Juried Art and Photography show and sale. “We average 100 entries per year and exhibit approximately 50 to 60 of those,” said Diane Arsenault, president of the Spirit of the Hills Northumberland Hills Arts Association, which hosts the event every year. “The show is only open to members and the fee is $10 per piece of art submitted,” she said. “We pay our jurors and we’re sharing the cost of the gala,” she added, explaining the reason for the fee. Juror of this year’s event is Marc L. Gagnon, a full-time water colour and acrylic painter. He holds degrees in Environmental Studies and Architecture from the University of Waterloo, and has practised architecture for over 25 years. In 2000 he was elected a member of The Canadian Society of Painters in Water Colour, (CSPWC) and served on the board of directors for several years. He was president of the CSPWC from 2005 until 2007. “Marc will be giving a free demonstration on abstracting the landscape in watercolours,” said Arsenault.

The demonstration will take place on Saturday, March 9 from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at the Warkworth Town Hall Centre for the Arts. The winning artists/photographers will be awarded their prizes at the show’s gala on Friday, March 7, which takes place from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. This year’s gala is being sponsored by On The Side Gourmet Food owned by Chef Tina Moorey. “One of the things I would like to acknowledge is the prize donors. This is the largest prizing giving juried show we’ve had yet,” said Arsenault. “Eclectic Mix has donated the ‘best in show’ prize of $250 for the past 14 years, our strongest supporter from day one,” she added. Last year, ‘best in show’ went to Lucy Manley of Peterborough for her oil painting of “Sunset on Graham Creek.” This was Manley’s first Best in Show win at the Maple Syrup Festival Juried art show. “Lucy has been a member of Spirit of the Hills for decades,” commented Arsenault. The other categories include ‘best painting’ which is being sponsored by J. Bruce Taylor Accounting, ‘best photograph’ sponsored by Allen Insurance and ‘best 3-D mixed media’ sponsored by Warkworth Remedy’s RX. “The quality of the artistry and the artists which encompasses photographers,

increases every year. Our membership is maturing as artists,” Arsenault commented. The show attracts more than 750 people that weekend. It is held at the same time as the Warkworth Maple Syrup Festival. “We find we are bringing in new people to the County for the art show,” said Arsenault. The artists’ and photographers’ work, including the winners’ submissions, will be on display in the Memorial Community Hall on Saturday, March 8, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, March 9 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. At that time visitors will have the opportunity to vote for the art/photograph they think should win the People’s Choice Award.

Great start for BGHF fundraising campaign

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Driver’s licences should be based on driving ability Dear Editor, In response to Jack Knowles letter, I too have attended three of those meetings to retain my privilege of driving and agree that this type of meeting is a complete waste of time. It’s true that an eye test and written portion are necessary but the most important part is to have the ability to drive correctly. Anyone can read up to correctly answer the test questions in a paper. Several times after these meetings I have watched recipients,

after receiving their two-year licence renewal, get in their cars and have great difficulty backing out of their parking space. The main point of having a driving licence is that you can drive correctly and safely and because of that I feel that a driving test should be made mandatory. Because of a medical problem I can no longer drive, but my thoughts on this subject are still the same. John Ottewill Warkworth

By Steve Jessel

News - The Belleville General Hospital Foundation (BGHF) has announced the results of the first nine months of their “Together We’re Better” fundraising campaign, and executive director Drew Brown says a record $2.5 million has been raised since the start of the campaign last year. “We’ve had a record year, and we’ve had our best year in just nine months,” said Brown. While Quinte Health Care (QHC) staff and donors expressed their amazement of the total amount raised, the reality is that the Together We’re Better Campaign still has a long way to go. Overall, the campaign aims to raise $12 million over a fouryear span to help purchase a host of tools and facilities to improve care at Belleville General Hospital, and at the announcement luncheon for campaign donor and supporters Brown said phase two of the campaign is already underway. The BGHF campaign will now look to raise $7 million over the next two years to help purchase equipment throughout the hospital to improve

cancer care. “Our sights are set high,” said Foundation vice-chairman Peter Knudsen. “That money goes to the right spot... we’re all here to try and do our very best to make BGH the very best place it can be.” Knudsen said the campaign had received over 6,000 donations from over 2,000 individual donors over the past year, including over 500 new donors.

The purpose of this meeting is to receive the Annual Reports of the Board of Directors and Auditors; to elect four Directors for the 2014-2017 term, to consider and if appropriate, approve amendments to By-Law 1, Section 7.11(b) changing the interview process for incumbent Directors of the Credit Union, and to transact other such business as may properly come before the meeting.

The campaign’s largest donor was the City of Belleville, which contributed $400,000 to the campaign last year. Hospitals do not receive government funding for new equipment and must instead rely on hospital foundations to raise the required capital. “It is absolutely amazing that you’ve been able to achieve that in nine months, it’s just unbelievable,” said QHC president and CEO Mary Clare Egberts. “We have a very dedicated group of caregivers at QHC, and they really just want to do their best to work on your behalf and make sure they’re providing the best possible care ... for front line staff, it is extremely meaningful to have the tools and equipment to provide what they’re so capable of doing.” Egbert added that having the best equipment also helps QHC recruit and retain skilled professionals. “Our staff and physicians absolutely rely on that equipment to allow them to make the best diagnosis possible,” she said. A number of BGH staff and physicians were on hand for the announcement, and also detailed exactly what kind of equipment will be purchased as part of phase two of the campaign, including diagnostic imaging equipment and equipment for the histology department. Specifically, a tissue processor and an HNE stainer are needed to help process the over 12,000 tissues samples the department receives a year and increase efficiency.

News – Campbellford Community Care Northumberland (CCN) has promoted two members of its staff to new positions in the Trent Hills team. Natisha Debutte, of Campbellford, has been promoted to fill the role of program co-ordinator in Trent Hills and she will be managing both the Campbellford and Hastings offices. Debutte has worked with CCN for five years. Her previous roles with the organization include program assistant at the Campbellford office, where she was responsible for the Meals on Wheels program, Community Diners, as well as conducting the registrations for both new volunteers and clients. Before she lived in Campbellford, she was the co-ordinator of the Home at Last and Home First programs. Both programs assisted clients returning to their home from the hospital. Previous to that she implemented a caregiver support program that was based out of Port Hope and helped to identify caregiver burnout, as well as provided educational support and respite relief for caregivers. “I love to be active in the community and a highlight of this new job is not only working with the residents of Trent Hills but a chance to get out of the office and meet with local groups to talk about the work of Community Care Northumberland in our communities,” said Debutte. She has obtained a Human Resource Management Diploma as well as a Bachelor of Arts Honours Degree. She previously volunteered with the Peterborough Victoria Northumberland and Clarington Catholic District School Board, Rebound Child and Youth Services Northumberland.

New program to reward dog owners who adopt

By Steve Jessel

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Â Belleville â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Every day in Canada, dogs are given up for adoption. Some are too loud, some are not friendly enough, some are too active, and others have behavioural issues stemming from a lack of training. The problem is that humane societies across the country are massively overloaded with animals, and even in Belleville, the Quinte Humane Society is almost always full to the brim with abandoned pets. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happening, is people give up on these dogs,â&#x20AC;? said Grace Bryson, a dog trainer and rehabilitator of almost 24 years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The dogs are either recycled constantly through the Humane Society or theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re dropped off on the side of the road or who knows, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s some pretty horrific stories out there.â&#x20AC;? Bryson is trying to start a new program in Belleville to help people adopt dogs from Humane Societies, and limit the number of animals that need to be put down because they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find a home. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s called the Rrruff Start Project, and it would see prospective owners sign a pledge sheet committing to caring for the animal for life when adopting a less desirable or â&#x20AC;&#x153;unadoptableâ&#x20AC;? dog from a local Humane Society or rescue. In return, the program offers a host of incentives and discounted services for the animal, ranging from discounted food, vet bills and training to a donated starter kit filled with essentials like bowls, collars, leashes, toys, food and blankets. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m basically going to give you zero reasons why you would have to give up on this dog,â&#x20AC;? Bryson said. Bryson has nine dogs of her own, many of them classified as unadoptable or highrisk. These are the types of animals that are commonly crowded into shelters by the dozens,

and once theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been given up, Bryson said many people turn around and buy themselves a new puppy for a companion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone is going to adopt a puppy of some sort, because puppies are cute,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But then again when they are six, seven or eight months old and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re beginning to have issues, where do they go? They go back to the Humane Society, and the owners go and get themselves a new puppy.â&#x20AC;? Once an animal has been surrendered to a Humane Society, their chances of being adopted are slim at best. At some kill shelters Bryson said dogs are only given up to 72 hours to be adopted, and if theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a large breed or of a certain colouring, sometimes even less. The adoption process also works against the dog, as animals in a shelter are often confused and scared and act out because of it, leading to families passing them by in favour of a â&#x20AC;&#x153;blank slateâ&#x20AC;? puppy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The problem is (the vast majority) of the blank slate puppies are coming from people who did not do anything in the way of pre-natal care, research, breed or anything,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you doubt me, go browse the Kijiji of any country, any city, any province, and they are just stocked full of dogs that are â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;free to a good homeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;.â&#x20AC;? Puppies that come from unlicensed breeders such as puppy mills, stud farms or backyard breeders can often run into health issues in later life, as

these breeders donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take the necessary steps to ensure the animalsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; health early in life. Improper mixing of breeds can also lead to a litany of health issues for the animal later in life. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Half of the people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even realize where their puppy is coming from,â&#x20AC;? Bryson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are never going to get these dogs out of these Humane Societies unless we stop all these backyard breeders and puppy mills. I realize that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m climbing a massive mountain, but if we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop the demand theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re never going to stop breeding these puppies. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These puppies that are being chucked away are paying the ultimate price for (their owners) selfish greed.â&#x20AC;? In order to get the Rrruff program off the ground, Bryson is looking for donations and volunteers. Her goal is to build 500 of the starter kits for new dog owners, but she needs the goods to fill them and people to help build them. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s starting her fundraising by asking for a just $2 donation, or the average cost of a cup of coffee. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the ability to ask any one entity for thousands and thousands of dollars, because no one is going to give it to me,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But if I can get thousands of people to each give me a toonie, well how fast that toonie pile will grow.â&#x20AC;?

Events â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Warkworth â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The two-day 28th Warkworth Maple Syrup Festival is surely a sign that spring is around the corner. After the winter everyone has had this year, the familiar faces of Alice and George Potter at Sandy Flat Sugar Bush will be a welcome site as they have always been since the popular festival began. But the couple, who sold their business last year, will be sharing the event with the new owners who will also be on hand to start a tradition of their own. Derek and Angela van Stam of Frankford decided to plan for their retirement with the acquisition of the sugar bush which, is known for producing Canadian world champion maple syrup. He is a sergeant in the Canadian Armed Forces at the Trenton base and she is a (civilian) nurse for the military.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to have to juggle this for the next five years,â&#x20AC;? van Stam told the Trent Hills Independent, adding, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re enjoying getting ready for this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s maple syrup festival. We have three kids and we like the outdoors ... Our son would rather come here than go to the movies.â&#x20AC;? The couple used to bring their kids to the festival. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always loved coming here.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;George and Alice are still involved as is Hanford Dougherty, (he mans the evaporator) who has been there for 20 years. Hanfordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty much the guy who knows whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going on ... he knows how to boil and I am learning a lot from George,â&#x20AC;? said van Stam. And working behind the scenes is this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s festival chair, Dennis Gebhardt. He and his partner Tom Harris own Stonehouse Gardens and are well known for their June garden event that raises

money for The Bridge Hospice. â&#x20AC;&#x153;About 8,000 to 10,000 people come to the festival each year. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big income maker for the village and surrounding area. Everybody benefits,â&#x20AC;? he commented. Harris will be among the many volunteers who greet visitors taking the shuttle buses to the sugar bush while Gebhardt moves from venue to venue to make sure everything is running smoothly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The festival is a family-oriented event with something for everyone,â&#x20AC;? he said. Beginning with the pancake and sausage breakfast hosted by the Warkworth Community Service Club, the festival offers fun activities including log sawing, sap making demonstrations, snowshoe competition and three-person plank races, sleigh rides through the sugar bush, olde tyme square dance demonstrations, step dancPlease see â&#x20AC;&#x153;Warkworthâ&#x20AC;? on page 19

In the village Glen Caradus, aka “The Paddling Puppeteer” will be bringing his musical puppet show to the festival. “That is something new but everything else is pretty much the same, such as the petting zoo. This year we will have fencing so children can’t dart onto the road,” noted Gebhardt.

“The festival is successful thanks to all the volunteers and the committee we have,” he added. “All the people on the committee have responsibilities. It’s an umbrella of people and I’m the hub. I am a control freak so I love it,” he added laughing, admitting, “The only thing I can’t control is the weather.” The festival takes place March 8 and 9.

Peewee Comets win two The path to vitality

I panicked...

My hair was thinning! For a long time Christie had wanted to do something extra for her hair. She felt it appeared dull and was thinning. Hair VolumeTM became her resource.

C

hristie encountered hair loss, which was very frustrating. “I have tried many things before, but to no avail.”

Read about Hair Volume™ Christie has worked in a pharmacy all her life. “Maybe that is why I was skeptical, when I first read about Hair Volume. I am always studying the declarations very carefully and there was something about this product,

which made me realize that it was special.” “Today I have taken the Hair Volume tablets for 38 days and I can truly feel an improvement and less hair loss. My nails are also stronger and less grooved. All in all a very positive experience. I will definitely continue taking this product”, relates a happy Christie.

Grey hairs can begin to appear due to a lack of copper in your diet. Hair Volume™ tablets contain copper, which affects melanin production to help avoid grey hairs.

YOUR HAIR TABLET Hair Volume™ nourishes the hair roots with nutrients like biotin, zinc, b-vitamins and horsetail, all important for healthy hair. Hair Volume also contains procynidin B2 found in apples, which has shown to benefit hair follicle activity.

Flourish campaign honoury chair talks community awareness By Sue Dickens

News – Campbellford – “Talk it up.” That is the gist of an informal sit down conversation which included Flourish campaign supporter and honourary chair Bob Bennett and his wife Ann with Campbellford/Seymour Community Foundation (CSCF) Executive Director Martha Murphy. The informal dining room get together was videotaped so it can be put on YouTube and the Flourish website to get the word out to residents of Trent Hills that the campaign is now moving to the next stage - public awareness. “One of the key components of the Flourish Campaign (www.flourishcampaign.ca), is the recreational piece that will provide opportunities for all age groups. With Family Day so close, we thought it would be a good time to hear from one of the campaign committee members who is also a major supporter,” said Murphy last week. “We thought perhaps this would be a good opportunity to get together with you and remember the purpose of Family Day - having a day off with your family - and we’re hoping that in future with the new recreation facilities, (Campbellford, Hastings and Warkworth) families will have an even broader opportunity to engage in activities throughout the community,” she added.

“Our first and foremost interest of course over many years is to see the establishment of an aquatic centre.” “Speaking of family, my father A.D. Bennett was one of the prime instigators in connection with the development of the hospital here in the early 1950s,” said Bennett. As well his older brother, the late Donald Bennett, “was a continuous supporter throughout his career in Campbellford in business,” as is his son, Eric Bennett, who now runs the family business. For the Bennetts, “Our first and foremost interest of course over many years is to see the establishment of an aquatic centre.” As (Ann) Bennett pointed out, “Not only for ourselves but for future generations.” The couple hopes that by talking about why they are such big supporters of the campaign, financially and personally, they will lead by example and inspire others in the community to do the same. “One area that’s sort of significant

is what can the residents of Trent Hills do in total to become involved and, as recently as our strategy meeting held last Monday, it’s apparent we need all the support that we can get from various organizations too,” said Bennett. He hopes user groups of current recreational facilities such as the local figure skating club and minor hockey association will support the fundraising

efforts. “And I’m thinking coming back to the medical fraternity we’d very much like to have them speak out and endorse the concept,” said Bennett, noting facilities improve the physical health and welfare of residents. It was also suggested that “talking it up” with local politicians, provincial and federal representatives would help,

With $2 million of the $7 million raised in just one year, hopes are high that the momentum will encourage residents to become more involved. “We need to now spread the word if you will,” Bennett said.

Flourish Campaign Honourary Chair Bob Bennett, standing, and his wife Ann, left, got together with Martha Murphy, executive director of the Campbellford/Seymour Community Foundation, one of the partners in the campaign, to have a conversation about the next stage – community awareness and involvement in the fundraising for the recreation facilities being proposed. Photo:

particularly now that the federal budget has been announced and municipal elections are on the horizon. “One of the problems with support for the recreational facility is the lack of something tangible for people to see ... We’ve been hampered by not having a model. But surely when all the agreements are in place that will be the next thing on the list,” said Bennett.

Patrol personnel are much more than just rescuers

By Ross Lees

News – Batawa – Fifteen people from 8 Wing have found a unique way to give back to the community and improve their own skills. These individuals are members of the Canadian Ski Patrol (CSP) and ply their trade as volunteers at the Batawa Ski Hill just north of Trenton. The 15 military members vary from experienced SAR Techs to first-year members just learning the ropes of the CSP, which is charged with the safety of skiers and snowboarders on Canadian ski hills. One of the volunteer patrollers is Maj. Darryl Rolfe, Commander of the Trenton Air Cadet Summer Training Centre (TACSTC), who also happens to be the Vice-president Administrator for the Frontenac Zone of the CSP and a first aid instructor in on-snow rescues. A lifeguard in the past, he became involved with the CSP for many of the same reasons others get involved – he believes in community involvement, he likes helping people, and he gets to practice a number of skills. A skier for well over 20 years, he decided to get more involved because his two sons were beginning to ski. “We’re individuals who have careers in other areas,” Maj. Rolfe noted of the CSP volunteers who patrol the Batawa Ski Hill. “We make contributions where we can but we also enjoy what we do. I felt this was a great way for me to have my own thing going on – a circle of friends, a purpose for being there and an opportunity to meet the public.” Maj. Rolfe describes the CSP volunteers as ambassadors of the hill and a focal point of safety when people need a hand on the ski hill. For those with the romantic illusion that it’s all high profile rescue work, think again. According to Maj. Rolfe, assisting people day-to-day can be anything from teaching them how to ride the chair-lift, or how to get a ski back on to a cut hand or, sometimes, that call when someone has sustained a serious injury on the hill. “From the ski hill management side of it, we’re often the face people inter-

act with the most,” stated Maj. Rolfe. “We’re often the ones to notify if there is a hazard on the hill. We like to ski and we want to keep skiing, so whatever we can prevent, we do. We want everybody to have a positive experience on the hill and come back.” Aside from members from 8 Wing, CSP volunteers at Batawa may include police officers, paramedics, Loyal-

ist College employees or students, an ER doctor, an Army reservist from the Hastings & Prince Edward Regiment, a member of the Army Staff College in Kingston or even retirees. But make no mistake, you don’t just decide to become a CSP volunteer and hit the slopes right off the mark. Nor is this everyone’s best chance at some free skiing. If you get involved, you may

find yourself committed year-round in one way or another. New CSP applicants are recruited in August or early September. As part of their training they complete an advanced first aid course (60 hours) along with a full CPR course. Whether you are a new member or a returning one, every CSP member (paid or volunteer) has to complete the CPR

course, the national exam and participate in field-day exercises, which subjects them to scenarios out in the open. These experiences present a realistic learning environment, as each member of the team will have to deal with weather conditions along with injured patient(s). “As soon as the snow flies, we do Please see “Canadian” on page B3

OPP warn snowmobilers to stay off Trent River

News – Campbellford – Northumberland Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) and the Trent Hills Fire Department (THFD) are issuing a warning to snowmobiles users to remain off the Trent River in Campbellford. The winter of 2014 has sent large quantities of snowfall to the Northumberland area and this has made for ideal conditions for snowmobile use on area trails. Recently, users of snowmobiles have been seen travelling at night along the Trent River in the town core in the village Campbellford under the Bridge Street Bridge and near the power dam at Trent Drive. Police and Fire officers are concerned about this as there is potential for open water in these areas as the water and ice conditions are changing daily and are unpredictable. Unsuspecting snowmobilers may be putting themselves in jeopardy if they come into this area not aware of what is ahead. OPP and fire officials are asking

that people stay off the Trent River at all times to avoid unnecessary injury or potential loss of life. If snowmobilers are in these areas and become involved in situation that requires assistance, it will take OPP and firefighters considerable time to perform a rescue, as easy access to the river is not available and a significant distance must be travelled from a suitable access entrance point with their equipment. Here are some tips for safe snowmobiling from the Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs (OFSC) and the OPP: No ice is safe Ice: It is never 100 per cent safe to snowmobile on ice. Snowmobilers must avoid unnecessary risks and stay on available land-based OFSC trails whenever possible. If you make the personal choice to travel by ice on snowmobile, wait until a marked stake line is in place and cross only when you can follow directly from shore to shore, without stopping on the ice. Night riding: Nine out of ten fa-

talities occur after dark. Slow down and do not overdrive your headlights. Becoming lost or disoriented is much more likely at night. Wear reflective clothing. Never ride alone at night. Always dress in appropriate snowmobile gear even if your intended destination is just next door. Practice zero alcohol” Alcohol is involved in over 70 per cent of snowmobiling fatalities. Even small amounts of alcohol can impair your perception, slow your reaction time and limit your ability to control your sled at that critical moment when your life is in the balance. The Criminal Code for impaired driving applies to snowmobiles as well and carries the same penalties as a car or other motor vehicles. Impaired driving is the number one leading cause of criminal death in Canada. For more information please visit www.ofsc.on.ca or www.opp. ca to learn more about safe snowmobiling and ice safety tips.


Canadian Ski Patrol finds special way to give back

Continued from page B1

â&#x20AC;&#x153;What sets us apart from the Red Cross is that we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just do the care, we do the evacuation as well.â&#x20AC;? Capt. Gillian Parker, a first-year member of the CSP from 424 Squadron at 8 Wing got involved because she heard a number of other squadron personnel were members, because she was looking for a way to get involved in the community and because her sister was a member of the CSP. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You want to give back to the community, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a way of socializing as well,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And you get to learn First Aid. Pretty much all of the rea-

sons everybody else has for coming out.â&#x20AC;? A typical shift for a patroller starts with checking their equipment. They make sure the toboggan is complete with supplies in place and in good shape. After that they position the toboggans and do a sweep of the hill to make sure everything is all right, that the hill is clear and the barriers are in place so that the ďŹ rst passenger up the chairlift will have a safe skiing experience. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What sets us apart from the Red Cross is that we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just do the care, we do the evacuation as well,â&#x20AC;? Maj. Rolfe said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The paramedics come to the hill, but we bring the patient to the advanced care.â&#x20AC;? Batawa Ski Hill General Manager Andrew Rusynyk appreciates the efforts of the CSP volunteers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen significant growth in the CSP this year and a lot of those The Canadian Ski Patrol makes sure the hill is safe for the first and last skipeople are from the base, which is ers down the hill on any given day. Photo: Ross Lees fantastic,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The people at the base are a huge base of guests we would like to attract to the hill.â&#x20AC;? Which is why the Batawa Ski Hill has created a 911 and Military Appreciation day on Thursdays of every week this season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Throughout the season on Thursdays, anybody who is part of 911 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; whether it be EMS, firefighters, police   or the military â&#x20AC;&#x201C; can come out here and get basically 50 per cent off our unlimited ticket, which is from morning to night. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re pretty keen on getting these people and their families out. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been one of our big focuses this year to try to improve the family fun experience for people. We know there are a lot of young families who come to the base, and we want to make them aware weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re here. Our biggest problem is to get people out.â&#x20AC;?

on-snow rescue training so they (the volunteers) can show us they can ski. We (also) teach toboggan handling and incident scene handling and then theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re generally considered qualified to start patrolling the slopes,â&#x20AC;? noted Maj. Rolfe. Patrollers must be a minimum of 18 years old, pay an average of $250 each year to be a member of the CSP, and cover the cost of their own uniform and first aid kit or vest, which when combined can cost approximately $500. During the off-season â&#x20AC;&#x201C; May through to August â&#x20AC;&#x201C; patrollers often remain busy providing first aid services at many non-skiing events including marathons, bike races, fundraising events, sporting tournaments, concerts, etc.

TRAVEL

by John M. Smith

Curious about the Caribbean’s Curacao

Lifestyles - My wife and I have had the good fortune to travel to several islands in the Caribbean, and this year’s trip was to yet another new one for us, Curacao. Indeed, we like to seek out new destinations each time as there are just so many intriguing places to visit, so we decided to travel to one of the smaller and arguably less known Caribbean islands.  I even discovered that some of my acquaintances didn’t seem to be particularly familiar with this destination, so I’d have to tell them that, “It’s near Aruba” or “It’s just off the coast of Venezuela” and then they’d understand where we were going.  Or, if they had heard of Curacao already, it was as “The place with all the colourful houses” for photos of the capital city’s brightly coloured buildings seem to appear in almost every tourism ad. Indeed, the beautiful Dutch colonial architecture is definitely a highlight of Willemstad, the capital city, and any visitor to Curacao will certainly want to check this out.  I, of course, took several photos of these colorful waterfront properties.  We also crossed the pedestrian pontoon bridge, the Queen Emma Bridge that separates two city districts, Punda and Otrabanda, so that we could explore more of this fascinating city centre, which has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. We discovered lots of shopping opportunities along the waterfront of St. Anna Bay.  However, we found out that this intriguing city had much more to of-

fer including the oldest continuously operating synagogue in the Western Hemisphere (the Mikvé Israel-Emanuel Synagogue), the Jewish Cultural Historical Museum (attached to the synagogue), the Pietermaai Cathedral (the island’s largest Roman Catholic church), the Curacao Museum located in a renovated 1853 hospital, the Curacao Maritime Museum with its unique maps, charts, and nautical equipment, the Kura Hurlanda Museum which traces the history of the slave trade in this area, Rif Fort, originally used as a defense for the harbour entry and now housing shops, restaurants, and a gallery, and Fort Amsterdam, now used as the governor’s home. We were also impressed by the city’s towering Queen Juliana Bridge (the tallest in the Caribbean) and its immense oil refinery. After all, since Willemstad is located so close to Venezuela’s oilfields, its harbour has become the largest oil handling port in the Caribbean. We travelled with Sunwing (www. sunwing.ca), on a direct five-hour flight from Toronto, and the flight times were a factor in our decision to check out Curacao, for we were able to be at our resort for lunch on the first day of our vacation and arrive back in Toronto in the early evening on the last day. We stayed at the Sunscape Curacao Resort Spa & Casino, which is less than half an hour from the airport and the only truly all inclusive on this island. Some other resorts include meal deals, but not all drinks, entertainment, etc.  It’s located close

to Willemstad and many of the island’s main attractions. For example, it was only about a ten minute stroll down the street to the Curacao Sea Aquarium Park, where one can watch sea lions in training, enjoy an encounter with stingrays and turtles, or even feed a shark.  Here one will also find the Dolphin Academy Curacao, where one can participate in several interactive programs with the coastal bottlenose dolphins. One of the things that we particularly liked about our resort was that it had four a la carte specialty restaurants, and it wasn’t necessary to make reservations for any of them.  We simply lined up and we, of course, just had to try them all!  One of the disappointments was that the resort’s beach area was relatively small, so there were no long walks available along the beach from property to property as there can be at some other Caribbean destinations.  Also, some sections of the beach were rocky, so wearing protective water shoes would be helpful.  However, the resort’s protective cove was a great place for snorkeling and Curacao is generally a wonderful destination for this activity and for deep sea diving. It has many intriguing coves and inlets with crystal-clear water. You’ll also find caves, coral reefs, and sponge formations and an abundance of colourful tropical fish. A two-hour boat ride will take one to the nearby deserted island of Klein Curacao (Little Curacao), where one will find an exquisite sandy beach and a lighthouse.  Some tour companies offer day trips here for a great escape from the hustle and bustle. One of our favourite activities was the short Sunwing Bon Bini tour of the island. Bon Bini means welcome.  Our very competent and cheerful guide, Danielle, provided us with lots of information on this introductory tour, which included stops in Willemstad and visits to Caribbean Handicrafts, the main supplier to most island souvenir shops and to the home of the Blue Curacao

Liqueur where we, of course, had to sample the products. We also encountered great photo ops of Spanish Bay and Table Mountain.  Danielle said that we might like to sample some of the local foods while on the island, including an entire fried fish (head and all), stuffed cheese (a cheese casserole), cactus soup, and stewed goat or iguana.   Curacao is home to many wild goats, iguanas, lizards, and tropical birds and, like the neighbouring island of Aruba, there are many cacti and

divi-divi trees bent by the prevailing winds. We also discovered that Curaçao gets its water from the sea, and the world’s largest desalination plant is located here producing safe tap water. This was very reassuring.  We also liked the fact that this destination seemed less commercial and Americanized than some of the other Caribbean islands, making for a more authentic or real island experience.

Bay of Quinte Federal Liberals announce the“Year for Women in Politics” program

News – The newly formed Bay of Quinte Federal Liberal Riding Association is pleased to present the strong voices of women in Canadian life. The “Year for Women in Politics “is a unique program to showcase women speakers. As part of this initiative, the association has committed to have women headline all the association’s events in 2014, including the popular four part Bridge Forum Speaker Series, which is returning this spring and autumn for its third year after another successful program last year. Belleville Director Rhea Pretsell pointed out her concern that “only 25

per cent of seats in the 2011 election were won by women, even though women form 50.4 per cent of the population in Canada.” She continued, “In spite of formal barriers being removed, discrimination and hidden barriers still prevent many women from seeking candidacy for political office.” President John Brisbois announced: “With our initiative this year, we are ensuring that women’s voices are being heard in the riding, and also that there is a welcoming atmosphere for women to get more involved.” The Year for Women in Politics will kick off at the third annual Heritage Din-

She states in her report that the group purchased new computers for patrons, a license for “Overdrive” along with many other needed items. Volunteers helped inventory over 18,000 books throughout the Christmas holidays. She said those books in poor condition or which did not circulate were removed to make way for new material. Adams stated in her report to the board February 4 that membership continues to grow and casual visits to use services is also up. Events throughout 2013 included a visit from the Dinosaur Lady, children’s author Heather Rankin, Food for Fines to support the local food bank, and the TD Summer Reading Club. As a result of partnering with Centre Hastings a Game Club was initiated which now meets the first and third Thursday of each month. The library has also taken on hosting members of the Madoc C.O.P.E. program, and continues to be a contact location for Service Canada. Financial support comes from contributions by the Municipality of Centre Hastings, the Township of Madoc and the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport. This year the library received two small Capacity Building grants from the Ministry and funding from Canada Summer Jobs for the Summer Assistant program. Adams also reports Tina Booth was hired on this year as the new custodian and is doing well in the position. At the beginning of the year, long time librarian/CEO Susan Smith retired and was given a surprise party at the library, which also served to introduce Adams to local supporters. Adams concluded her report by thanking the Board of Directors, staff, patrons and volunteers for assisting with transition into her role in the library community.

OFA vice hopes to open dialogue with farmers said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Agriculture is one of the sectors that is most rapid to adopt new innovation and new opportunities and new research, and a lot of the time that does mean that less labour is required on the farm ... We have issues with regards to being able to keep people employed, because with technology one person can do more and more.â&#x20AC;? McCabe also points to conflicts between city centres and farmers as being a major challenge facing Ontario farmers in the coming years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is certainly an issue of urban sprawl, especially around our city centres,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Therefore itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the issue of understanding that people are taking up some of our prime agricultural land for these houses, and what impact will this have on the future.â&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hopefully this is a dialogue that carries on for much more than one evening.â&#x20AC;? Local farmers and interested members of the public are invited to take part in a special speaking engagement with OFA vice-president Don McCabe, organized by the Hastings Stewardship Council and the Hastings Federation of Agriculture for February 27.

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Belleville â&#x20AC;&#x201C; When the vice president of the Ontario Federation of Agriculture (OFA) Don McCabe visits Belleville later this month for a special speaking engagement organized by the Hastings Stewardship Council and the Hastings Federation of Agriculture, he has one clear goal in mind. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s see where we can go to open a dialogue,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hopefully this

is a dialogue that carries on for much more than one evening.â&#x20AC;? Farmers and interested members of the public alike are invited to attend the presentation, which takes place on Thursday, Feb. 27 at 7 p.m. at the Township of Thurlow Community Centre. McCabe, a corn, soybean and wheat producer in Lambton County says he plans to touch on a wide range of issues and policies related to the ever-

changing agricultural landscape, and also invites public input and discussion on the issues of urban sprawl, changing technology, how Ontario farmers interact with the environment, the management of water, environmental goods and services, and climate change among other things. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The rate of change seems to be faster as the years go on, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s partly due to technology,â&#x20AC;?

McCabe is no stranger to speaking engagements across the province, but said a large part of the presentation is focused on input from locals, and hearing about their stance on common issues facing the agricultural industry. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an issue of knowledge sharing, and at the same time knowledge gathering, because the OFA has worked hard to create policy based on stakeholder input and the environment in Ontario is one where farmers have active participation,â&#x20AC;? he said.

Environmental issues are a major part of changing policy, and as part of the presentation McCabe said he also plans on outlining aspects of the Environmental Farm Plan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to ensure that we listen,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I hope that people find some value in attending the event, and hope they take the opportunity to participate.â&#x20AC;? There is no cost for the event, but donations will be accepted at the door.
