Meeting attendees disgusted and appalled

EMC News - Brighton - A special meeting of municipal council last week left some residents disgusted. “As a resident and a taxpayer, I’m appalled,” said Cathy Hewton, as she left the meeting on June 25. And she wasn’t alone. At issue was a session called by Mayor Mark Walas to deal with two topics of concern: receiving a report from CAO Gayle Frost regarding the Centre Street road reconstruction project and a discussion of municipal support to the Brighton YMCA. The bylaw to authorize executing an

Boyer KIA

agreement between the low bidder for the Centre Street project, Behan Construction, and the municipality hit a snag at the June 17 council meeting, when a clerical error delayed the process. Last week, the hope was to get the work back on track. The trouble began when the discussion turned into an attack on municipal staff. The problem with the document was a mistake in defining the scope of the job. Originally tendered as reconstruction from Richardson Street to Chapel Street, the

Want to solve a mystery?






By Ray Yurkowski

EMC News - Brighton - The Friends of the Brighton Library are hoping you’ve got the sleuthing skills to come up with a solution at a murder mystery evening being held later this month. Murder mystery parties are becoming more and more popular and this one hopes to raise funds for the Brighton Public Library. Host John Lawrence Reynolds and fellow award-winning Canadian crime writers Janet Kellough and Vicki Delany promise an evening of intrigue, mystery and mayhem. Reynolds recalls similar events he has been part of, most in the HamiltonBurlington area. “The most successful libraries are the ones that look beyond just being a place to pick up a book,” he said. “This is an opportunity to help the local library in terms of reaching out to readers and an opportunity for fans of good mystery novels to discover some writers they haven’t read yet. It’s also an evening of entertainment. The story we’re going to present is a puzzle.” The guest authors, Kellough and Delany, will come up with their own solutions to the mystery before the real version is announced. “I expect both of them to create an outrageous solution to keep everybody entertained,” said Reynolds. “I hope we get a lot of people out. I can guarantee they’ll enjoy themselves on a summer night.” “There’s certainly no lack of mystery book readers in this town,” says Friends president Lesley Simla. “When I moved here, I couldn’t get over the size of the mystery section at the library. I thought I’d died and gone to heaven.” A free preview of Murder in a Thunderstorm is available on the library web site <> and prospective Sherlocks can pick up a full manuscript for a nominal fee of five dollars. Then it’s up to you to solve the case and Reynolds says the answer is there. “If you look carefully and think like a detective, you’ll very definitely find out who the killer is and how it was done,” he said. “There’s a real clue hidden in there.” Bring your solution to the Barn Theatre where you will join fellow mystery lovers for a lively evening of wine, cheese and murder. Prizes will be awarded for the best deductions. “The game is afoot” at “A Midsummer Murder,” beginning at 7:30 p.m. on July 20 at the Brighton Barn Theatre. Admission is by donation.

superintendent Jake DeGroot (manufacturing); business owner Steve White (community); business owner Larry Hutchinson (community); Deputy-mayor Craig Kerr (municipal) and Councillor Mike Vandertoorn (municipal) with support from municipal economic development manager Elisha Purchase. Also attending the meeting were municipal CAO Gayle Frost, Quinte Economic Development Commission (QEDC) CEO Chris King and Northumberland County economic development director Dan Borowec. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is not a successor committee to anything,â&#x20AC;? said new chairperson Kerr. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a brand new initiative that is addressing the need to develop our community. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve assembled a pretty awesome team from the different sectors who each bring skill sets, experience and viewpoints to move it forward.â&#x20AC;? The first step, says Purchase, is to develop the Brighton brand. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really important,â&#x20AC;? she said, after the meeting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to give us an identity and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something we need to complete before we get into the other priorities.â&#x20AC;? A sub-committee (Denyes, Jefferson and White) will come up with a proposed plan on branding for consideration by the entire group at their next meeting on August 28. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Municipal brands are much more difficult than corporate brands because youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re representing much more,â&#x20AC;? says Purchase. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a difficult process.â&#x20AC;? She proposed retaining a consultant to manage brand development and to provide a plan for implementation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The process Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m recommending: working with a consultant and getting the community really engaged as part of that process is key,â&#x20AC;? said Purchase. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is a lot to be done. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a list of things we need to do but thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no point in going forward until we have a brand. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the first key step before we can put money toward some of those other things.â&#x20AC;? The challenge to a brand is, Brighton is different things to different people.

When Walas pointed to a discrepancy in the numbers, Frost explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The bylaw is the full cost, and what we will be writing the cheque for,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The staff report merely said the price plus HST.â&#x20AC;? In a recorded vote, Kerr, Martinello, Rittwage, along with Councillors Emily Rowley and Mike Vandertoorn voted to approve the bylaw. Walas and Tadman voted against. Two days later, Walas refused to sign the approved bylaw and Kerr was called back from a personal trip to Belleville to endorse the document.

“We’ve been a partner at the table but we haven’t had the land available. Now that we do, I see a lot more progression through our committee in really being able to foster new development. Attraction of new business will be a larger component in addition to retention, which has been the main focus in the past.” Purchase also looks forward to completing a BEDC action plan. “I want it to be very specific so we can see things taking place,” she said. “This committee will be doing things.”

Community Care Northumberland honours volunteer

EMC News - Colborne - Pat Westrope was probably the most surprised person in the place. The event was the Community Care Northumberland annual general meeting, held last week in Cobourg. When it came time to announce the winner of the James Bryson Memorial Award, as the organization volunteer of the year, it took awhile to realize who they were talking about. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It came as a tremendous surprise,â&#x20AC;? said Westrope. When she listened to the introduction, she

thought, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;this sounds like someone from Colborne.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; As it went on, she was struck by how busy the recipient must be. The ďŹ nal clue came with the mention of a Cramahe Township councillor. Next year, Westrope celebrates 20 years of service in municipal politics. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our staff believe they are fortunate to have her,â&#x20AC;? said Community Care Northumberland executive director Trish Baird, in the wrap up. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Patricia is the person to go to when you want something done and her positive attitude is infectious. She is an amazing woman and we are

blessed to have you on our team.â&#x20AC;? A volunteer with the organization since 2007, Westropeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s introduction to the organization was through her position on council. Once she realized the scope of what they provide, she was hooked. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I saw the need,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Once you get involved, you certainly see the good they do and the need they support.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know why you do what you do,â&#x20AC;? Westrope said, when asked why she volunteers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just who I am. I love this community, I like the area, I like the people, I like the qual-

ity of life and I get satisfaction from included in that company.â&#x20AC;? seeing things done, and done well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is a place for everybody,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know there are a lot of people she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are unlimited opout there who do a lot and I feel portunities to be involved.â&#x20AC;? very honoured and humbled to be For more information about

Lock it or lose it at home By Ray Yurkowski

EMC News - Brighton - Ontario Provincial Police are investigating an incident where brazen thieves entered a Brighton residence sometime between 8:30 a.m. and 4:45 p.m. on June 24 to steal a quantity of jewellery, GPS, iPod Touch, two digital cameras and other personal

items valued at close to $3,000. The residence was left unlocked at the time. The investigation continues. Police advise the â&#x20AC;&#x153;lock it or lose itâ&#x20AC;? principle also applies to homes, not just vehicles. â&#x20AC;&#x153;OPP strongly remind residents to ensure their homes are properly secured while they are

away and valuables are not in plain view from windows or doors,â&#x20AC;? says a press release. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Activate alarm systems and secure motor vehicles not being used.â&#x20AC;? Anyone with information regarding the daylight theft is asked to call the OPP at 613-4751313 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800222-4877.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR other trades take years to learn their trades and get certified. They spend many thousands of dollars to obtain the tools and other needs of their respective trades to equip themselves properly to do the job. These trades generally charge $65 to $80 per hour for their work. Why then does a dental technician need

to charge $200 an hour to clean your teeth? In Mexico the regular price of teeth cleaning by a dentist is 350 to 400 Pesos, around $30. Why can’t we get our teeth cleaned here, 45 minutes work and $1 worth of materials plus water for $75? Nobel Biocare is one of the top brands

$1,000 per tooth. In Mexico the same quality crown is $350. So the story continues. If a dentist here needs $250 to $300 an hour for his time and you equate the time spent you will not reach the obscene prices being quoted for their work. Why? The governing body of dentists really has to look at their commitment to the community and address the affordability of what they are charging for their work. Why do we, the Canadian population, and the retired people have to go without teeth, eating on spaces instead of teeth to feed their greed. It’s time we stood up to these people and tell them we are fed up and will

not pay these prices. There are laws in the Unfair Business Practises Act, with Criminal Code consequences for people overcharging for what they do. Why are dentists exempt from these laws? Surely it’s an unfair business practice for a dental assistant to charge $200 an hour for her time and $1 worth of paste. Surely it’s an unfair business practice for a dentist to charge $5,000 for an implant or $1,000 for a crown. We need to address this issue and we need to do it now as the Boomers start to retire on old teeth. Are we about to become a country of toothless people? Garry Hershberg, Havelock

The deeper you dig, the more incestuous it gets

Dear Editor: Prince Edward-Hastings MP Daryl Kramp’s reading of Conservative talking points in the House of Commons on June 18, 2013 proved to be pathetically transparent. Kramp’s feigned outrage regarding Justin Trudeau’s ability to command some rather hefty fees on the speakers’ circuit was obviously just another attempt by the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) to shift Canadians’ focus away from Mike Duffy’s sordid little affair. Bloated greed surfacing in false expense claims from a Conservative senator bears no comparison. One would think Conservatives might applaud such fair functioning within the free enterprise system. Justin Trudeau’s speaking engagements are booked through an agency called Speakers’ Spotlight, which represents a wide range of public speakers. In Conflict of Interest and Ethics Commissioner Mary Dawson’s April 13, 2010 report, written in response to Peterborough Conservative MP Dean Del Maestro’s March 15, 2010 complaint about Justin Trudeau getting paid to speak, she wrote: “He [Mr. Trudeau] has included a letter from Mr. Martin Perelmuter, President of Speakers‘ Spotlight, confirming their bookings for Mr. Trudeau are only in his capacity as an individual who speaks about environment, youth and education. Mr. Perelmuter added that this is made clear to clients, and if the event seems remotely political, clients are directed to his Member of Parliament offices to book him as a Member of Parliament.” Commissioner Dawson concluded her report by stating, “On the basis

of the information provided, I have no reason to believe that Mr. Trudeau has contravened sections 8 or 9 of the Code [as alleged by Del Maestro]. He is carrying on business as a paid speaker while respecting his other obligations under the Code, and this is permitted under Section 7 of the Code. For these reasons, I have decided that an inquiry is not warranted.” This public offensive against Justin Trudeau was sparked when the PMO released a letter written by Grace Foundation board member Susan Buck to the Speakers Spotlight. President Perelmuter responded to Buck via email on April 9 saying, “we were confused by the request for a refund since we had followed up after the event, nine months prior to receiving the letter, and were told that the Grace Foundation was pleased with the outcome of Justin’s presentation.” Two weeks ago Justin Trudeau offered to reimburse any organization which feels they did not get their money’s worth from his speaking engagement. To date he has had none ask for a refund. Dig deeper and the light starts to creep in on this situation, courtesy of Revenue Canada files, where we find the vice chair of the Grace Foundation (aka The Church Home Charitable Foundation Inc.) Judith Baxter, has very close ties to the Conservative Party. In 2011 Heritage Minister James Moore gave her a lucrative four-year term as a “trustee of the Board of Trustees of the Canadian Museum of Civilization.” Judith Baxter’s husband Glen happens to sit on the Riding Executive of Conservative MP for Fundy-Royal Rob Moore, who was the AL CI

in dental implants. A Toronto dentist quoted $5,000 for one of these implants. A local, really good dentist, here quoted $3,500 for an implant but didn’t specify the brand he would use. Five dentists in Mexico quoted $1,500 to $2,025 for a Nobel Biocare implant put in by a specialist assisted by a dentist. Does anyone think that Nobel Biocare sells their implants any cheaper to the Mexican dentist than they do to the Toronto dentist? Is it any wonder people are walking around with half their teeth here because they can’t afford the cost of replacing them. High quality non-metallic caps or crowns on a tooth here cost $900 to


Dear Editor, I would like to address the obscene cost of dentistry here in Ontario. Someone really should bring out in to the open the unnecessarily high prices being charged for dental work here, the rest of Canada, and in the U.S.A. Plumbers, electricians, auto mechanics, and

$200 an hour to clean your teeth?

MP who delivered Susan Buck’s letter to the PMO. Baxter posted a photo of herself on Facebook receiving a Jubilee Medal from Moore in the PMO last February. The deeper we look the more incestuous it gets. Dragging this dead horse out of the Conservative PMO, since the Ethics Commissioner gave a very clear ruling on this issue over three years ago, shows how desperate Harper’s brain trust on the Hill has become. No doubt Daryl Kramp was only too willing to obey his master’s request to read their note in the House since getting time in the spotlight of Question Period is hard to come by. Having something valuable to say is what Justin Trudeau was paid for. My guess is that Mr. Kramp can only wish his own thoughts were equally valuable. Alan Coxwell, Stirling

Thank-you Mr. Chard, family and friends Dear Editor, Kudos to Mr. Chard of Brighton. A fantastic fireworks display was presented that lasted 20 minutes. The crowd was full of oohs and aahs. A band, sparklers and even O Canada! Believe it or not, the rain let up for that time period. Thanks again for a second year even better. Cheryl Langevin Brighton

The Nicaraguan canal

Gwynne Dyer

EMC Editorial - On June 10, the Nicaraguan parliament voted in favour of building a $40-billion canal across the country connecting the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. Since the country is dirt poor, the money would have to come from international investors. It would be raised by a Hong Kongbased firm, HKDN Group, which in return would get the right to build and run the canal for 50 years. But nobody outside Nicaragua took the plan very

seriously. On June 15, Nicaragua’s president, Daniel Ortega, and Wang Jing, the owner of HKDN, signed a contract that gives the Central American nation 51 per cent of the company’s shares. Wang said the capital could easily be raised from Chinese companies and international banks, but since his only business experience has been in running telecommunications firm Xinwei Telecom, again nobody took much notice. So on June 25, Wang went public. Speaking in Beijing, he said he had already attracted global investors. Work on the canal would start in 2014, and it would be open by 2020. “We don’t want it to become an international joke, and we don’t want it to turn into an example of Chinese investment failures,” he said, adding that returns on the project were “sure to make every investor smile broadly.” Promoters always talk like that, and there would still not be much reason to take Wang and Ortega seriously if it were not for one fact: Chinese businessmen do not launch projects of this scale without the support of the Chinese government. The risk of embarrassment is just too high. Wang denies that he has official support, of course: “I am a very normal Chinese citizen. I couldn’t be more normal.” But if Beijing really is behind the project, then it may actually happen. So what would be the implications of a 286-kilometre (178-mile) waterway connecting the Caribbean with the Pacific via Lake Nicaragua. For Nicaragua, they would be huge. The Nicaraguan government claims that work on the Great Interoceanic Canal and associated projects—a “dry canal” freight railway, an airport and two duty-free zones—could double Nicaragua’s GDP and triple employment by 2018. In a country that still does not have a proper highway connecting its two coasts, that would change everything. For Panama, whose existing canal has been the mainstay of the country’s economy for a century, the competition

We’re number two!

would be very serious. A $5-billion project to double the Panama Canal’s capacity by building a third chain of locks across the isthmus is nearing completion, but it will still be restricted to taking ships of 65,000 tons or less. The rival canal in Nicaragua would be able to accommodate the new generation of ships ranging up to 250,000 tons, but there will not be enough shipping to keep both canals in business unless world trade continues to expand rapidly. In any case competition in transit rates would be fierce, and it might well come to pass that neither canal was very profitable. Then there is the environmental question. The new route would cross Lake Nicaragua, the region’s largest freshwater lake, bringing with it not only pollution but the risk of introducing salt-water species that could disrupt the lake’s ecology. But if it is forced to choose between economic growth and environmental purity, there is no doubt that Nicaragua’s government would choose growth. The biggest question, however, is strategic. The United States built the Panama Canal and ran it for many years. Two-thirds of the cargo that goes through the canal comes from or is going to U.S. ports, and American warships still have the right to jump the queue of ships waiting to go through. As a country with coasts on both the Atlantic and the Pacific, the United States sees control of the fastest way between the two oceans as a high strategic priority. Despite the hand-over of the existing canal to the Panamanian government in 1999, at the moment the U.S. still has that control. It would have far less control over a Nicaraguan canal, and will doubtless do its best to derail the project. That’s an inevitable strategic reflex, but it is not necessarily the case that a Nicaraguan canal would really lessen the U.S. Navy’s strategic dominance in the region. Nothing is more vulnerable than a canal in wartime, and even in confrontations where force is not yet being used canals are easily blockaded. And although the Chinese navy no doubt enthusiastically backs the Nicaraguan project, it’s hard to see what real strategic advantage it would gain. The new canal is certainly feasible from an engineering point of view. It may be viable economically, depending on cost factors that have not yet been calculated and on the rate of expansion of world trade. But its fate will probably be decided by the Chinese government’s willingness to back what is, for China, a vanity project. And that, in turn, will depend on whether China’s economy remains strong enough to afford such an indulgence. At the moment, I wouldn’t bet on it.


Remove the Senators and elect new ones

Dear Editor, The Canadian Senate is far from being democratic. No one elects the Senate, it is appointed by the prime minister in power. The prime minister can appoint anyone they want to be a senator. The person may be a friend or someone the prime minister owes a favour to, or just someone who helped them become prime minister. They will usually pick people who will benefit them. The Senate has the power to refuse laws and should therefore be loyal to the people of Canada not the prime minister. The Senate is supposed to protect Canada from irresponsible laws. But how can we be protected when they are working for the government making the irresponsible laws? The Senate also gets paid tax dollars to question the government. Should they not be unbiased? The Senate needs to be reformed so that all Canadians will have more power to change Canada. What Canada, as a democratic country, needs to do is

repair the Senate. To do this, Canada needs to collectively decide to remove the people working as the Senate. Once that is done, Canada can choose to elect people to become a new democratic Senate. Canadians can vote on the details in a referendum such as who will qualify, where they must be from and how they will be elected. An elected Senate will make Canada a true democracy. We will no longer have to have laws approved by people who are born into wealthy families or considered to have better judgment. This will create more needed jobs as the people appointed by the prime minister are often individually wealthy. Also every Canadian will have a larger voice on deciding what our country will be like. Laws control our entire world therefore we should, as Canadians, have more say about how we want our nation run. Katey Townsend, Stirling

By Terry Bush

EMC Editorial - Well, we can’t actually claim that distinction alone but we’re in pretty good company along with the UK, Australia and New Zealand. Can you guess who’s number one? When all is said and done, being one of the United States “second class” or “second party” countries isn’t much to brag about. All it really means is that under international intelligence agreements, the aforementioned English-speaking countries are more trusted than well, those darn Europeans. Those crazy eavesdropping, fun-loving people at the U.S. National Security Agency don’t waste a lot of time listening to our phone conversations or tapping into our email mainly because our own governments are probably busy doing that for them and passing along the information. Germany definitely isn’t enjoying their third-class status at the moment. Last week’s revelations, courtesy of Edward Snowden, have Germany more than a little upset with their ally. It seems despite the fact that the UK, Denmark, the Netherlands, France, Germany, Spain and Italy all have formal agreements to provide communications data to the U.S., that wasn’t quite enough for the Yankees. Now, it’s come to light that the Americans have been bugging the European Union’s offices in Washington and at the UN while hacking into their computers. Only a fool would believe the United States and most other countries in the world don’t spy on one another but the country that likes to draw lines in the sand apparently has crossed a very big one and put its foot squarely in it. Considering that the Americans and Europeans have spent years laying the groundwork for a free trade agreement worth hundreds of billions of dollars, timing is everything. Could you imagine spending years setting things up for negotiations (which were supposed to start this week) only to find out that the U.S. was listening in on the phone conversations of your top officials. To add fuel to the fire, the U.S. is also accused of running an operation out of NATO headquarters in Brussels to infiltrate the telephone and email networks in the Union’s Justus Lisius building which is the venue for EU summits and is the home of the European council. Using NATO headquarters as a base for spying on the European parliament certainly won’t win any friends in Europe or among its allies.  Germany, the EU’s powerhouse, bore the brunt of the U.S. shenanigans, with Justice Minister Sabine Leutheusser-Schnarrenberger quoted in the German newspaper Bild as saying, “If the media reports are true, it is reminiscent of the actions of enemies during the cold war. It is beyond imagination that our friends in the U.S. view Europeans as the enemy.” Der Spiegel magazine reported that leaks from Edward Snowden claimed that the U.S. National Security Agency tapped into half a billion German phone calls, emails and SMS messages each month. The Brits, who seem to follow on American coattails whenever possible are said to have done extensive tapping of German phone and Internet traffic and shared that information with the NSA. The Germans are not amused. On Sunday it was announced that Germany is preparing charges against UK and U.S. intelligence services. Given that the German is rated as thirdclass trustworthy in the eyes of Americans, the Germans may want to seriously downgrade the trust status of the Americans to a negative number. With these latest revelations, the Americans’ threatening language to any and all countries that might grant Snowden asylum, may be explained by their need to apprehend Snowden before more spit hits the fan. Threatening Venezuela was just plain comical. They must have felt they were in the movie Groundhog Day, it’s such an every day occurrence. Threats by U.S. senator and chairman of the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee Robert Menendez to Ecuador were met with amusement and scorn by President Raphael Correa. Menendez threatened to take away U.S. trade benefits which would hurt Ecuador’s flower and broccoli exports to the U.S. Correa responded, “Ecuador doesn’t accept pressure or threats from anyone and doesn’t barter its principles and sovereignty or submit to mercantile interests.” Correa then proclaimed that he wouldn’t be blackmailed by the U.S. and renounced the $23 million per year in reduced tariffs afforded in the trade benefit deal while offering the Americans $23 million in aid to train U.S. government employees to respect human rights. He went on to complain about the usual U.S. double standard. Ecuador has tried for years to get the States to extradite two bankers wanted on criminal charges but the U.S. has ignored them. Now they expect Ecuador to extradite Edward Snowden should he seek asylum there. As for Snowden himself, he’s still holed up in Russia in the Moscow airport hoping one of the 20 countries he’s contacted with the help of the Russians will offer him asylum. Politicians in France are so upset by the U.S.’s behaviour that support for granting asylum to Snowden has crossed party lines. Russia may in fact be the country he stays in because as Putin pointed out, no doubt with a smirk on his face, Russia has no extradition treaty with the U.S. and has never extradited anyone. Father Putin has advised his wayward son Snowden, however, that releasing any more information may not be in his best interests. The strangest part of this whole affair is that China, Russia and a couple of South American countries are the ones sounding like true human rights activists and the U.S. definitely is not. It’s become quite the topsy-turvy world.

Mailbox filling up? Taking the bull by the horn is the (delete) key By John Campbell

EMC Editorial - I know exactly how former Premier Dalton McGuinty must have felt. I keep getting an automated message from my email corporate account telling me my mailbox is almost full and I need to

reduce its size. Here’s the tricky part: “Delete any items you don’t need from your mailbox and empty your Deleted Items folder.” The thing is, I don’t know what I don’t need. I can’t predict the future. Who’s to say


KVXVi^dc 7^WaZHX]dda 7^WaZHidg^Zh™8gV[ih H`^ih™<VbZh Hdc\h

there won’t be a time when I could use that link to Justin Bieber’s latest antics caught on video. Or that timely note on how to remove a mustard stain without the use of scissors. Mr. McGuinty’s problem with email while in office was considerably greater than mine. In fact, the volume he was receiving was “staggering,” he told a justice committee at Queen’s Park investigating the cancellation of two gas plants in the Toronto area at a cost of $585 million. What to do, what to do. Well, delete seemed like a good idea to staff in his office and other bureaucrats confronted with the same problem but they got carried away, according to Information and Privacy Commissioner Ann Cavoukian.   She expressed her deep concern in a report

“about the apparent lack of responsibility and accountability over records management within the offices of senior political leaders in Ontario.” Easy for her to say things should have been done differently. As Mr. McGuinty pointed out to the committee, the rules under the Archives and Recordkeeping Act his government passed in 2006 “are confusing and they cry out for clarity. “What to destroy and what to preserve is today a matter of judgment. There is no comprehensive list of when to preserve, when to destroy.” Knowing that now, you can see the dilemma his former staff faced and why they acted as they did. Without clear direction on what to retain, with no list in hand spelling out that any and all correspondence touching

on what has been the subject of intense public debate for more than a year is to be preserved, his office fell back on the triedand-true formula, “When in doubt, toss it out.” Who can argue with that? You let things start accumulating, even electronically, before you know it you’re hoarding, and the health unit will tell you how unhealthy that can get. So let’s cut the former premier and his former staff some slack. But if your confidence in the Liberal minority government has been shaken by one of the greatest follies ever seen in the province, and you’re now questioning its fitness to lead, you can do as it has done, at the next election: “When in doubt, toss it out.”

Dear Editor, Chutzpah is a word derived from Yiddish and Hebrew that can be defined as shameless effrontery, utter nerve and even insolence. It could be used to describe many activities of the current Harper Conservatives, including the following example.
 It’s only been a month since the Federal Court found that widespread voter suppression targeting non-Conservative Party of Canada (CPC) voters took place during the 2011 election, and that the most likely source of the data used to make the fraudulent calls was the CPC’s database. In a stunning move we now learn that the Conservative MPs in the case have filed a request in Federal Court seeking reimbursement of $355,907.56 in legal costs from the nine individuals who bravely launched this case. They even go so far as to refer to this as a “modest” amount that is a “small fraction of the actual costs” the MPs

spent fighting the applications. Remember, these are the same Conservative MPs who, in the words of Justice Richard Mosley, “engaged in trench warfare in an effort to prevent this case from coming to a hearing on the merits.” Let’s be clear here: All Canadians have the right to defend their vote where it has been infringed upon. Nine individuals stepped up to challenge the robocall scandal and $1,000 in security for costs was filed with each application in each of the seven ridings. They faced months of relentless attacks and shameless delays by the Conservative MPs and their high-powered legal team who tried to stop them at every turn. Thanks to support from thousands of generous Canadians, they were able to overcome these obstructions, pursue justice and prove widespread election fraud happened in May 2011. Now, rather than accepting this exposure of the most vicious attack ever on Canada’s

democracy, these Conservative MPs want these individuals to pay them more than $350,000, instead of thanking their lucky stars that the judgement did not go so far as find them guilty as individuals. Conservatives have been strangely silent about how its voters’ lists were accessed and its security breached by those who used them to perpetrate this crime. Hopefully the voting public will remember this and many other examples of obfuscation and oft-employed vilification together with the secrecy, misinformation, mismanagement and abuses of public office that have characterized Harper’s Conservative government and crush them at the polls in the next election. Better to have them pensioned off at great expense to us than completely ruining the country, morally and financially as well as Canada’s reputation abroad. Iain Henderson, Brighton

Antique cars are in better shape than people

EMC Editorial - Jay Leno is an automobile technophile; when Jay needs something for his extensive car collection, he gets it. Our home area, the Quinte Region, has more automotive clubs per capita, than there are in California; we have the Road Angels, Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s oldest since 1952, the Quinte Flywheelers, the Boot â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Bonnet car club, the Prince Edward Car Clubâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;to name a few. What will an avid Quinte car collector do when that precious antique car breaks down, and spare parts are no longer available? In years past, skilled machinists could reproduce parts, a costly and time-consuming practice. Todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s machines are computer controlled, and new parts are made without a human hand touching them. That leaves the average Jane and John in the cold, unless that personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name happens to be Jay Leno. Jay makes no secret about his extensive collection of high-priced antique cars, but also high-tech modern vehicles. Jayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1907 White steam car has an aluminum feed-water heater, which had become porous and saturated with oil. No problem for Jay Leno: instead of having a machinist re-create a new heater, he can call his friends at headquarters of Ford or General Motors; They helped him to one of those amazing new 3D (three-dimensional) parts printers. Yes, a parts printer; from those printers emerge objects. Leno describes how his two mechanics at the Big Dog Garage, a warehouse-sized treasure trove for â&#x20AC;&#x153;wheel nuts,â&#x20AC;? used a 3D laser-scanner to make a digital model of the unusable part. That virtual drawing was then transferred to the garageâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s newly acquired $30,000 parts printer, which â&#x20AC;&#x153;printedâ&#x20AC;? the object in plastic. That part was then used to make a mould for casting the metal part to replace the unusable feed-water heater. The three-dimensional scanner measures 50,000 points per second at 160,000 dots per inch (dpi) density to create a highly accurate virtual model. The 3D printer then uses that digital model to make an exact copy of any part in plastic. An adjustable wrench, for example, can be made of hard plastic in one piece, without having to assemble the three moving parts. The printer could be compared to a computerized glue gun, running side to side and back and forth. At every pass, it lays down

a minute layer of plastic, until the part is complete. This can take from a few hours to a few days, depending on the size and complexity of the part. The basic â&#x20AC;&#x153;glue-gunâ&#x20AC;? type printer can now be purchased as a desk-top model for â&#x20AC;&#x153;onlyâ&#x20AC;? $15,000.

A refrigerator-size unit prints parts by combining two different materials: Similar to applying two-part epoxy from separate tubes in very small quantity and great detail. This method produces parts with increased hardness. Manufacturers are starting to use

large-scale units to print prototype parts, using various metal powders and heat in the printing process. Without this innovative process, Lenoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s White steamer would never have run again, he admits. Now he uses it to drive to the TV studio occasionally.

The Dangers of a

Cracked Tooth

Dr. Brian Ho Do you remember the last time your dentist recommended a crown for your tooth with a large ďŹ ling in it? A recent study has shown that your dentist was right all along. In this study, the scientists measured the amount of force to break teeth with different sizes of ďŹ llings. The teeth in this study ranged from ones with no ďŹ lling, with ďŹ llings with 1/4 of width of the teeth, 1/3 and 1/2. You will be shocked with what they have found. They discovered that when a ďŹ lling in a tooth exceeds 1/3 of the width of the tooth, you will be twice more likely to break the tooth or crack the tooth. When a ďŹ lling in a tooth exceeds 1/2 of the width of the tooth, you will be 3-4 times more likely to break the tooth. Now, this does not mean you will break all of these largely ďŹ lled teeth. However, it means that when you have a large ďŹ ling, you are at a signiďŹ cantly higher risk for a tooth fracture or

crack. Here is the concern. When you wait for a tooth to break, there is a serious possibility that your dentist may not be able to ďŹ x that tooth. Even if the tooth were ďŹ xable, the underlying tooth structure would be damaged after the fracture, the longevity of that tooth would not be as good. If you happen to crack a tooth (rather than fracture the tooth), the problem is more signiďŹ cant. A crack, once it starts, cannot be stopped. Sometimes, these crack can run down to a nerve of the tooth or bone, which makes it extremely difďŹ cult to ďŹ x and can cause some serious discomfort. Unfortunately, a lot of cracked teeth end up with extractions. Here is the good news. Some of these weak teeth can be effectively protected with full coverage restorations that can cover the biting surfaces of the teeth. Since there is less wedging effect compared to ďŹ llings, these restorations (usually made of porcelain) can give a long lasting treatment option for your largely restored, structurally weak teeth. The key is to get these type of restoration earlier than later, before the crack happens.

Dr. Brian Ho is a practicing general dentist in Trenton, Ontario. He can be reached at Trenton Family Dental, 613.394.3883. For further information and discussion, please visit his office at

Brighton Chamber of Commerce looking to the future EMC News - Brighton - It seems there is no cause for alarm, even after Brighton and District Chamber of Commerce treasurer Denise Franklin forecast a financial loss in 2013 of about $5,000 at their regular board of directors meeting last week. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The reality is, this Chamber is probably in the best financial shape itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seen in a long time,â&#x20AC;? said manager Sherry Hamilton, after the meeting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That loss isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really happening. There

are lots of things in place to make sure we will make up that deficit.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have to go forward in all fronts,â&#x20AC;? she added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In terms of revenue generation, we have to do lots of things.â&#x20AC;? The annual golf tournament is set for September 11 at Barcovan Golf and Country Club and, most recently, the business group, along with Chambers in Quinte West, Belleville and Prince Edward County, is selling a seven-day vacation package to Dubai and

Abu Dhabi departing in March 2014. Contact the Brighton Chamber office at 613-4752775 for more details. Hamilton sees a bright future for the Chamber. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I look back and reflect on the number of things that have happened since I got here, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m confident,â&#x20AC;? says Hamilton as she celebrates four months on the job this week. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Municipality of Brighton has shown faith in us by renewing the [tourist information] contract and

Colborne celebrated Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 146th

upping the ante by 20 per cent.â&#x20AC;? As well, the municipality has given the Chamber $5,000 to administer the Brighton bus, which gets rolling this week. Even before Hamilton took over her post at the Chamber office, she recalls creating a SWOT (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats) analysis of the organization. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was my own market research after talking to members, former members and people in the community,â&#x20AC;? she said. After being hired and learning the board of directors had recently mapped out their own assessment, they compared both documents. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They were pretty close,â&#x20AC;? said Hamilton, as she pointed to three priorities: re-branding the Chamber, increasing the membership and governance (creating a mission statement and committees along with defining roles and responsibilities). â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a step-by-step process,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Several committees have been created [strategic planning, membership, executive and golf tournament] and I can see lots of partners coming forward who have ideas of how they would like to work with us. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We can say to our members, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;this is a good place for you to be, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to be a strong advocate.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Sometime this month, Hamilton will be sitting down with Cramahe Township CAO Christie Alexander to discuss a recent tourism and business partnership proposal from the

Chamber. One piece of the agreement is already under way: staffing a tourism kiosk located at the Big Apple. According the document, â&#x20AC;&#x153;the goal of both communities is to grow their local economies for residents and for visitors. By looking at the area between Colborne and Brighton as one economic corridor, both municipalities can capitalize on the whole area by offering a much better

consumer and tourism experience.â&#x20AC;? On strengthening the relationship between communities, the Chamber proposes, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Chamber and Cramahe intend to enter into this process to develop mutually beneficial projects that lead to long term economic growth for the region. There is a vision for the future and working together with local partners is the key.â&#x20AC;?

Bleasdell Boulder Conservation Area a nice walk to the rock

By Kate Everson

EMC News - Glen Miller - The Bleasdell Boulder is a well-travelled rock. The glacial deposit was originally formed during the Great Ice Age 20,000 years ago when Ontario was buried beneath a huge ice sheet several kilometres thick. When the ice retreated, 12,000 years ago, glaciers began to move south, scraping soil and rock along the way. The Bleasdell Boulder was one of the remnants of this event. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The bedrock of this area is mostly sedimentary, but rocks of igneous or metamorphic origin are strewn about our landscape,â&#x20AC;? notes research from the Bleasdell Boulder Preservation Corporation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These out-of-place rocks, known as erratics, were picked up and placed here by glacial ice or water.â&#x20AC;? Most erratics are fairly small and can

be found in backyards and ďŹ elds as well as in stone fences where early settlers and farmers placed them. The Bleasdell Boulder is unusually large. This boulder probably came from the Precambrian or Canadian Shield about 40 kilometres north of its Glen Miller site, shoved along by a glacier. It is composed of Grenville marble (calcite) with veins and patches of quartz, surrounded by actinolite with bits of coarse calcite and bands of pale tremolite. It is estimated to weigh close to one million kilograms. It is 13.5 metres (44 feet) long and 7.3 metres (24 feet) across. Its height ranges from six to seven metres (19 to 22 feet) high. It is one of the largest known erratics in North America and is very probably

the largest in Ontario. The property on which the boulder stands was owned by a family farm between 1808 and 1901. The Reverend Canon William Bleasdell (1817-1889) took the time to study the boulder and take its measurements. The rock is now named after him. It was originally known to locals as â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Big Rock.â&#x20AC;? The Heissler family became interested in the Big Rock in the 1950s. In 1997 Paul and Maria Heissler purchased the

property and began to improve access to the boulder, adding a parking lot, bridge and trail. In 2001 a group of local citizens known as the Bleasdell Boulder Preservation Corporation took over, adding a wheelchair accessible trail, booklets and signage with help from the Ontario Trillium Foundation. In 2005 ownership of the property was transferred to Lower Trent Conservation which has added further improvements,

including another bridge and trail. The boulder also now links to the Lower Trent Trail. Natural features around the rock are part of the enjoyment of a walk through Bleasdell Conservation Area. A variety of trees, ďŹ&#x201A;owers, birds and wildlife and The Big Boulder Creek can be found along the way. The Bleasdell Boulder is found along Highway 33 (Trenton-Frankford Road) just south of the Glen Miller bridge.

EMC News - Campbellford It required little effort to ďŹ nd out where the bargains were at the ďŹ rst annual Trent Hills Relay for Life yard sale and barbeque June 29â&#x20AC;&#x201D; there were so many waiting to be discoveredâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;but locating the real â&#x20AC;&#x153;gemsâ&#x20AC;? was the easiest of all. Jessie Jewels was one of a dozen relay teams who set up a booth at the fairgrounds to raise money for their contributions to the Canadian Cancer Society or the Campbellford Memorial Hospital

Foundation. They werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hawking precious stones but selling home-baked pastries and chili prepared by members of Jessie Francis-Carterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family. The Campbellford native who had moved to Woodstock was diagnosed with brain cancer in 2010. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was inoperable â&#x20AC;Ś [and] she lost her battle January 2 of last year,â&#x20AC;? said her grandmother, Diane Francis, who lives in Green Acres. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jessie was so courageous through her illness, generous to a

fault. Every time sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d come visit sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have presents for everybody. Just a wonderful young lady, whose life was â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;cut off too shortâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; at age 23.â&#x20AC;? Francis, a two-survivor of cancer, said Jessie is now â&#x20AC;&#x153;looking out for me.â&#x20AC;? She was diagnosed with uterine cancer seven years ago and then with colon cancer last year, after receiving radiation treatments the ďŹ rst time around, but now sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;clear.â&#x20AC;? This is the third year Jessieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jewels will be taking part in the

relay that will take place September 6 and 7. The ďŹ rst year they raised about $1,000 and surpassed $5,000 in 2012. This year they hope to bring in more than $7,500. The relay â&#x20AC;&#x153;means everything to me,â&#x20AC;? Francis said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In order for us to ďŹ nd a cure for this we have to raise the money.â&#x20AC;? Moreover, the Cancer Society was â&#x20AC;&#x153;there for us,â&#x20AC;? counselling Jessie and arranging rides for Francis to Kingston every day for ďŹ ve weeks to receive treatment.

Further delay in choosing second river crossing

By John Campbell

EMC News - Campbellford More issues need to be resolved and questions answered before Northumberland County’s steering committee will be able to choose which of two river crossing options it prefers. Don Drackley, senior associate with the IBI Group, led off the committee’s June 28 meeting by declaring his firm’s support for twinning the existing bridge rather than building a new structure connecting Alma and Second streets. However, by the time the session ended, he had been persuaded to withdraw that endorsement because of various points raised by committee members, in particular Trent Hills council members and staff,

led by Mayor Hector Macmillan. “There’s a number of issues that now have to be added to the evaluation,” he said, when asked why. Drackley said the shift in thinking is “common” when conducting an environmental assessment. “It’s allowed to go back and forth, in order to make sure that, by the time you get to the end, you’ve considered everything,” he said. “This is healthy. I would have been very worried if we hadn’t had this degree of commenting and questioning from the committee, because the issues here are so important.” As a result the project’s schedule has been pushed back about two months. “We were planning on holding

a public meeting September and now it will likely be in November,” Drackley said. A recommendation from the committee to county council is now not expected until the end of the year, possibly in January, he said. IBI Group looked at 19 criteria in six areas—traffic, engineering and construction costs, and the social, cultural, natural and economic environments—to determine the two alternatives’ impact and the consultants concluded twinning the main bridge is better than building a new one between Alma and Second in four of them. The two were rated even in terms of the natural environment and project costs. “We strongly believe that

one of the main advantages to twinning the existing bridge is that it contains the traffic along the historic traditional route through Campbellford,” Drackley said, whereas with the second proposal, “there is great potential for traffic to divert into what is potentially a residential neighbourhood on both sides of the river.” Macmillan said the loss of up to 12 parking spaces along the downtown corridor to accommodate traffic flow on and off the bridge will require offstreet parking. “It’s a huge challenge to retain customers in the downtown core with the existing parking we have now,” he said. Finding replacement parking spots will be “absolutely critical.” CAO Mike Rutter said the

need to acquire property for offstreet parking should be included as a factor in considering the two options. The twinned bridge option, which provides for the addition of a left turning lane at each end of the bridge, as well as a bike lane, could cost an estimated $12.8 million to construct, compared to $11.6 million for the SecondAlma option based on figures put together in 2009. Trent Hills Councillor Rosemary Kelleher-MacLennan pointed out that more traffic crossing the bridge in future “may increase the potential for an accident” in which a spill, such as from a carrier of liquid manure, could contaminate the town’s water supply. The intake pipe lies to the south of the bridge.

Drackley agreed to add that as another criteria to consider. (A member of the audience, Gary Raines, suggested the concern could be addressed by extending the intake pipe upstream from the water filtration plant to above the main bridge, to avoid any spillage from overhead.) Audience members weren’t happy to hear about further delays in a process that began in 2007 and voiced their displeasure. “Believe it or not, we’re making progress,” committee chair Cobourg Mayor Gil Brocanier told them. “The process is costing a lot of money [but] if it’s going to take longer to make a decision then it’s the right thing to do to get the right decision.”

Directions contained in draft housing plan presented By John Campbell

EMC News - Campbellford The first draft of Northumberland County’s ten-year housing and homelessness plan will point to the need to preserve and increase the supply of local affordable housing by building one-bedroom units and allowing apartment units to be created in homes. An overview of the plan being developed by consultant Tim Welch and his team was presented at community consultations held last week in Port Hope, Cobourg and Campbellford that drew

fewer than 30 people (with no one from the public showing up for the last meeting, held in Campbellford). “The lack of supply is a really, really big issue,” Welch told The Independent. There are roughly 32,000 households in the county and 19 per cent of them are tenants— and of that number, 43 per cent of them are paying 30 per cent or more of their income on housing, Welch said. The situation promises to get worse because only five per cent of the new housing stock being

built is for tenants. An additional 400 rental properties will need to be built each year to handle the county’s projected growth in population, Welch said. There are more than 800 nonprofit and county-owned social housing units in Northumberland, with three-quarters of them rentgeared-to-income. Currently 322 households are on the county’s waiting list for rent-geared-to-income, onebedroom apartments but the wait can be up to two years. “A lot of people don’t bother filling out application forms; Everyone Welcome To

they’re looking for something now,” Welch said. The consultants found that Port Hope rents are the highest in the county, at $855 a month on average, for a one-bedroom apartment. Welch said “it’s going to be tough” for the county to meet the challenge of providing badly needed moderate to low-rent housing. Welch said there should be clear and consistent municipal bylaws across the county that allow for the creation of second units, in keeping with the direction provided by the province. Municipalities also could use powers under the Planning Act to push for some portion of new housing to include “relatively affordable” properties. Another issue that needs

to be tackled is to improve support services to prevent homelessness, such as extending essential services beyond office hours or finding a different way to offer emergency services that doesn’t require construction of an expensive shelter. The initial directions were derived from information gathered at public meetings held in April, surveys completed by more than 100 residents and service providers, and in-depth interviews with agencies. The input received will be used to fine-tune the draft report that is to be submitted to the county for approval in September and then sent off to the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing. The plan is scheduled to be implemented January 1, 2014.

Welch said the plan, when completed, will identify specific steps the county should focus over the next few years, priorities that can be costed for the annual budget-making exercise. One of the keys to the plan being successful in the early stages is the recent announcement by the federal and provincial governments that they will extend funding programs for housing projects for another five years. Northumberland’s housing situation is “quite significant,” with a growing seniors population and “changing economics” that has seen jobs lost and wages reduced, Welch said. “For both those reasons you’ll need an increase in the amount of housing that is affordable and an increase in the amount of housing that is accessible,” he said.

Partnerships among key developments for foundation

By John Campbell

at the organizationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual general meeting June 20. The partnership involving the Relay For Life contributed more than $8,000 to the $700,000 fund-raising campaign the foundation has undertaken for the purchase of a digital mammography machine for the hospital, Russell said, and under a renewed agreement for 2013, â&#x20AC;&#x153;foundation-recruited Relay for Life teams can designate the funds they raise to the hospital.â&#x20AC;? The five-year partnership, with the

municipality and community foundation, was formed â&#x20AC;&#x153;to address the long-term recreational, health and wellness needs in Trent Hills,â&#x20AC;? Russell said. Of the $7 million the Flourish Campaign is intended to raise, $4 million will be used to buy high priority equipment for the hospital. Russell said the Keepers Society, â&#x20AC;&#x153;a program to recognize and encourage donors who make a $500 per year commitment to the foundation, grew in 2012 and plans are in place to advance the program further in 2013.â&#x20AC;? The annual general meeting was the first for Russell who took over from Neil Hannam, who left the organization last September to become the executive director of the Ontario Shores Foundation. Russell, who worked ten years for the Northumberland Hills Hospital Foundation in Cobourg, started his new job in late October, and one of his first tasks was the Angels of Care Christmas Appeal.

EMC News - Campbellford - Two events stood out last year for Campbellford Memorial Hospital Foundation: the partnerships it entered into with the Canadian Cancer Society, and with the Municipality Trent Hills and the Campbellford-Seymour Community Foundation. The first was â&#x20AC;&#x153;an innovative way for a small rural hospital to join in the fight against cancer,â&#x20AC;? hospital foundation executive director John Russell said


into their home or business for a cup of cheer or coffee and treats, in exchange for a donation to the hospital. The campaign raised $140,000 for the purchase of six new scopes. Foundation board chairman Calvin Newman highlighted a pair of significant gifts that were made in 2012.   The John M. And Bernice Parrott Foundation donated $175,000, which will go toward the digital mammography machine, and Peter and Miriam Kurita created a $50,000 gift annuity, â&#x20AC;&#x153;a unique gift method where a donor can earn income from the annuity and name the foundation as the beneficiary in their estate plan,â&#x20AC;? Newman said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whether large or small every gift the foundation receives is very important to us. It shows us that many, many people in our community understand the importance of quality health care close to home,â&#x20AC;? he said. John Papanicolaou, owner of Master Subway, was recognized for his

longstanding support of the hospital, dating back to 1996. Since 2005 he has raised $13,195 for the hospital, through discount coupons given out with purchases at his


restaurant, which he matches when customers return rather than redeem them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He shows great leadership and motivation to others in the community,â&#x20AC;? Russell said.


HOME INSPECTIONS Tradesman ?... It Only Makes Sense.


â&#x20AC;&#x153;We try to create meals that are kid-friendly but still healthy and at the same time we try to do a few other things with the adults without kids group,â&#x20AC;? Stuckless said. And always the meals are â&#x20AC;&#x153;affordable, accessible and easy to put together.â&#x20AC;? Many of the food items come from Food 4 All in Cobourg. Participants are able to take home their finished recipes where they can serve them immediately or freeze and store them. The Collective Kitchen experience is also very social, Stuckless adds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They enjoy coming for that reason too. They have heard about other things going on in the community and they get invited out to other opportunities as well. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s comfortable and everyone gets along.â&#x20AC;? Participants also learn about food safety, Stuckless added. Stuckless is looking forward to September and says there is always the possibility of adding a third group. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Right now we have enough folks but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

She adds that the Hastings Civic Centre has an â&#x20AC;&#x153;absolutely perfect facilityâ&#x20AC;? which is offered at no cost by the Centreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s advisory committee. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a perfect opportunity for people in the community to get together.â&#x20AC;? The Early Years Centre provides childcare for parents while they take part in the program and Community Care Hastings has allowed the group to use their freezer for storage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good partnership,â&#x20AC;? Early Years supervisor Angie Nestoruk agreed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone has enjoyed themselves and made new friends. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a Trent Hills success,â&#x20AC;? Nestoruk said noting that there are now three active Collective Kitchen programs in the municipality.


EMC News - Hastings - The Collective Kitchen program at the Hastings Civic Centre made its mark this year and will return in the fall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been beyond our expectations. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been wonderful,â&#x20AC;? Pat Stuckless, a public health food worker with the Kawartha Pine Ridge District Health Unit who ran the program, told the Trent Hills Independent as a group wrapped up their session by preparing a special lunch for the Hastings Ontario Early Years Centre. Stuckless says the free program has gone so well that they had to â&#x20AC;&#x153;break-outâ&#x20AC;? into a second group: one group was made up of parents with kids and the other of adults without children. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It has gone fantastically,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of that is because of the Early Years Centre [upstairs]. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been very instrumental in getting people from the community involved.â&#x20AC;? Simple meal planning is central to what Stuckless and cooking participants strive for.

Lifter raises funds for oncology department EMC News - Quinte West - Local weight lifter Rich Machell is pulling his own weight when it comes to fighting cancer. In fact, he is pulling much more than his own weight, by competing in world championships to raise funds for the oncology department at Belleville General Hospital. “My father-in-law is battling brain cancer and lung cancer,” he said. “He is an example of how strong you can be.” Rich is partnering with the oncology department for the fundraising campaign which officially starts this fall, helping support new procedures, specialized equipment and a new doctor. “I’m kicking off my end of the fund raising today,” he said, tied to a 21,000-pound truck loaded with 72,000 pounds of paper from Norampac. He gave it a few tries but couldn’t budge the total 100,000 pounds. “You weren’t supposed to have it loaded,” he said to his friend Terry McInnes, owner of Titanium Company which hauls scrap paper. McInnes was there with his son Tyler for a truck pulling “photo op” for the kickoff. McInnes is a sponsor for Rich and shares the same concerns of family and friends with cancer. Quinte West OPP Constable Ed Jouwstra and an unknown accomplice also showed up for the kickoff. They tied the rope to the cruiser so Rich wouldn’t slip when he tried the big pull.

The federation is called “natural” because it does not allow any drugs at all in the competitors. “They do random testing all the time,” Rich says. Rich says he has never included drugs or steroids of any kind in his weight lifting. He has been training since he was 14. He is now 30. He has been competing in strongman competitions

for the past eight years, including several in the Quinte area. “I was going to retire, but decided I still have a few good ones left in me,” he said smiling. He works out three or four days a week, in his spare time from his real job of working with the new Hercules-J model aircraft on the base. “I weigh 300 pounds, not all muscle,” he admits. “Some of that is fat.” Rich says he needs that bulk to help him in strongman

competitions. In Maryland he will be carrying a 400-pound stone, pressing a monster dumbbell over his head, carrying an 800-pound frame and walking with it. “All this weight lifting is hard on your body,” Rich acknowledges. “It’s not worth losing your health.” But he decided to do it for the oncology fund raiser because that means something to him. “It’s important that the money goes there,” he said. “My father-inlaw inspired me, what he has been through already. Every dollar I make will go to oncology.” Rich was born and raised in Trenton. His wife supports what he is doing because she knows it is for a good cause. After competing in Maryland, Rich has invitations from The World Natural Strongman Federation to compete in England, Hungary and Brazil.

Six local athletes added to the Sports Wall of Fame

Derek Zandstra


Men’s Soccer June 27 - Despite having more than 75 per cent possession of the ball throughout the game, the Brighton Keystone Orange were defeated in Bay of Quinte Men’s Soccer League action, at home, 1 - 0 by the Belleville Old Boys. An early goal held up even though the Old Boys didn’t manage a single shot on the Orange net in the second half noted Brighton coach Merv Heffernan. The loss, coupled with a Fury win over Campbellford, drops the Brighton squad into second place in the division one standings. “The team played well,” he said. “We could very well have won by three or four if the breaks had gone our way. But they didn’t, and that’s soccer.” The next league matchup for the Orange is at 8:30 p.m. tonight (July 4) at Zwicks Park in Belleville against the Titans.

Equine Centre can help with PTSD, autism treatment By Ross Lees

EMC News - Hillier - Members of the military from 8 Wing/CFB Trenton and their families may not have far to travel any more if their autistic children need treatment, or adults with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), anxiety or depression want help. The HEAL Equine Centre in Hillier, Prince Edward County, continues to improve its qualifications for the treatment of these and other disorders, including holding a two-day training course Tuesday and Wednesday from world-renowned Horse Boy founder Rupert Isaacson. The HEAL farm was the training centre for practitioners learning the Horse Boy techniques from Isaacson and Lliane Lorenz, both from the Texas headquarters of the Horse Boy Camp. Isaacson works internationally teach-

ing his Horse Boy method at camps and centres in North America and Europe. In 2010, the Autistic Society of America awarded Isaacson the Autism Award for his significant contribution to improving the lives of all who are affected by autism. The HEAL farm, owned and operated by Suzanne Latchford-Kulker, sprang from her love of horses, nature and helping others. Fascinated by horses since she was eight years old, she has been involved with horses off and on in Canada, Italy and Germany for most of her life, except for a ten-year absence beginning in her mid-20s. Seven years ago, in 2009, she purchased the 35-acre property in Hillier and the day they took possession of the farm, their first horse “showed up.” “All of our horses came from various backgrounds and needed homes,”

she said. “Instead of buying a horse, they’ve all come from people who couldn’t care for them anymore or were too old.” As the principal training tool at HEAL farm, Latchford-Kulker pays attention to the horses she acquires. She now has seven. “They are definitely horses that like people and like to interact and have a bit of character,” she states. “It’s very important that our horses live as a herd and they live as close to their natural instincts as possible. They’re outside 24/7, they’re not put in a stall at a certain time every day and they’re healthy, hearty horses. They all have their pecking order and herd dynamic which can teach people a lot, as well, because horses are always authentic. They’re always in the moment.” “Meaning they’re jolly rude,” Isaac-

son interjects, chuckling. “They don’t know how to live any other way and they are prey animals, so they’re very, very in tune to what’s going on around them at all times because that’s how they survive, right?” notes Latchford-Kulker. “That makes them very good at judging people, so you can’t hide anything from them. They know what you’re feeling before you do.” It is that very awareness that pulled Latchford-Kulker back to horses and led her to certification in Facilitated Equine Experiential Learning, a healing process grounded in helping people through a partnership with horses to better deal with emotions or behavioural patterns they’d like to change. HEAL farm runs two-day workshops where people come and connect with the horses.

According to Latchford-Kulker, the people would start opening parts of themselves to the horses they didn’t know were there or they would start to listen to “their authentic voice rather than their analytical thinking mind. My job as a facilitator is to help them come out of their analytical thinking mind and go into their body and access their truth.” This is a very transformational process, according to Latchford-Kulker. One of the first things she does with her clients is have them meet the herd. “I take them through grounding, meditation and breathing and I say pick up anything from each horse—it doesn’t matter what it is—then we’ll go through each horse and we’ll talk about it. Sometimes they pick up something about themselves that they’re getting from the horse, thus bringing it into the discussion.” Often what they initially pick up from the horse is something basic, like it’s the youngest, or this horse seems nervous, or this is the head horse and they relate it to themselves in the end, she indicates. “There are lots of reflective, quiet moments,” she notes. “They get ‘Aha’ moments and there’s journaling, as well. They do an activity and then they go away and they sit at the pond and write about their experience which gives it more meaning, more value for that person, and it’s theirs, it’s nobody else’s but theirs.” She says the process is very much an educational process and a great partnership between the horse and the person. Horses are revered for their opinion, she says, garnering another response from Isaacson. “It was a saying in medieval times the horse was the only living being that would tell the king the truth, because the horse would dump your ass in front of your subjects just like that,” he laughs. “And lots of kings were killed in falls from horses,” he said as a result of their authentic voices, the one true voice coming through. Latchford-Kulker recalls a workshop she ran one time with four military members, a workshop sponsored by Soldier On. Because teaching can include many forms of spiritualism, meditation and shamanism, workshops are often tailored to the people involved. That particular workshop she recalls using smudging and mandalas. Please see “Issues” on page B2

Splash pad concert series Issues addressed kicks off strongly despite weather Continued from page B1

“I had them draw how they were feeling first and at the end of the day, they drew another mandala and we compared the two. It showed them ‘this is where I was and this is where I am.’” It is this workshop which directed Latchford-Kulker to the Horse Boy method of teaching.

The popular Donegal Fiddlers Orchestra kicked off the Norwood Lions Tuesday night concert series at the Asphodel-Norwood Community Centre. Inclement weather forced the show inside but that didn’t stop a large crowd from enjoying an outstanding show with generous donations toward the Norwood Lions splash pad campaign.

After that one course, Soldier On would not fund more workshops because the equine facilitated learning had no riding in it and Soldier On’s mandate includes recreation, sports and healthy living. “Our method addresses those issues,” Isaacson noted.

EMC News - Norwood - Good music and an enthusiastic crowd trumped bad weather at the Norwood Lions kickoff splash pad fund-raising concert. The popular Donegal Fiddlers Orchestra made the arena floor feel like home after organizers quickly shifted the concert indoors as thunder clouds loomed and rain arrived at show time. A large crowd was on hand to enjoy the orchestra’s fiddling excellence and the barbeque put on by the host Lions. Money raised through donations at the shows will go toward the Lions’ splash pad campaign. The Norwood Lions are spearheading fund raising for the facility which is estimated to cost $300,000. The Lions hope to raise $75,000 by the end of the summer; they’ve already garnered approximately $68,000.

“If the generosity of the patrons is any indication of the future, the concerts will yield all that was expected and more,” says Lions member and splash pad committee member Ron Scott. Scott did double duty as a member of the Donegal Fiddlers and the Lions Club. Scott and the Lions were surprised by the number of people who showed up early for the barbeque and the crowd swelled as show time approached. Spectators were “very generous” with their donations during the intermission, he said. “The arena turned out to be a very satisfactory rain venue for the event and once again proved that the acoustics, mentioned before by various musical groups, are of very high standards in this state-of-the-art facility.” It was a very busy night at the

community centre with the Norwood District Public School Grade 8 graduation filling the Millennium Room and mite softball drawing fans to J.J. Stewart Field. The Tuesday night series aims to use the outdoor picnic shelter as its stage with spectators opening up their lawn chairs on the well-maintained grounds surrounding the venue. “It’s reassuring to know that this alternative is close at hand,” says Scott. The July 2 concert featured the blues and rock band Candy Mountain. July 9 will be a special family entertainment featuring Tim Holland (aka Tim the Puppet Tamer), Peterborough singer, clown and entertainer Dan Fewings and the one-of-a-kind Kitchen Kuties. There will also be face-painting provided by local esthetician Janet Banks. On July 16 the contemporary and country trio Western Avenue will perform giving a preview of what fans can expect at the Havelock Country Jamboree. Peterborough alternative rock band

The Detourists will light up the stage July 23 while Debbie Drummond and the Inclines, a tribute to the life and songs of Patsy Cline, appear July 30. The Cat Sass showcase featuring the

talents of Niall Jensen, Vivian Forte and Diamond Dust take to the stage August 6. Shows start at 7 p.m. with the Lions barbeque beginning at 6 p.m.

Westben celebrates the arrival of new star attraction

EMC Entertainment - Campbellford The performances were exceptional at Westben’s Piano Concerto Gala Weekend, featuring the talents of some of this country’s most accomplished musicians, but the biggest star of them weighs over 900 pounds—and has three legs. The newly acquired Steinway Concert Grand Piano made its debut Saturday afternoon, June 29, with a program that included Canada’s premiere pianist Robert Silverman playing Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 5. The first half of the program showcased Westben’s own co-founders,

Westben Arts Festival Theatres, Inc. has raised about $10,000 thus far of the balance by means of a keynote campaign in which people who give $300 get their name put on one note, while a donation of $500 is good for two. Bennett, Westben’s director of marketing, said pianists had started saying it was time for Westben to replace the Heintzman it had been using that was more than 85 years old. “The other piano was good, too, but this is like a whole new step up,” she said. Conductor Dan Warren said the new piano “makes a big difference,” not only in the audience’s enjoyment of the music, but also for the performers. “To have a piano of this quality to play just brings out the best of them,” he said. “It’s just so easy and natural to play, the sound is really beautiful,” said Lisa Tahara, who took to the stage for Sunday’s concert. She performed The new sign marking progress in Westben’s campaign to raise $25,000 was Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 put on display Saturday, to mark the arrival of a Steinway Concert Grand Piain C minor, after pianist Leonard Gilbert no that was purchased for $65,000, director of marketing Donna Bennett said. opened the program with music by both Photo: John Campbell Chopin and Schumann. Her first time at The Barn, she said the “venue is just amazing, it’s truly one of a kind.” Warren said it “is an amazing place … [and] the driving force behind it is really the love of music. Both Brian and Donna give so much of themselves for the art form.” The orchestra drew most of its members from the Toronto and Kitchener-Waterloo symphonies, the Canadian Opera Company and the National Ballet Orchestra. The musicians love Westben and ask at the start of every year if there will be an opportunity to play there, Warren said. “It’s wonderful.” Beginning Thursday night, July 4, with a preview and continuing until Sunday afternoon, The UBC Opera Ensemble will stage its production of Carmen, and they will be joined by members of the Westben youth and teen choruses.

Giant Hog Weed spotted in the area

EMC News - Regional - It has been referred to as “the blistering, blinding, potentially lethal weed from hell.” Giant hogweed, (Heracleum mantegazzianum) an invasive plant sighted in eastern Ontario in the past few years seems to be making a home for itself in the Tweed area. A resident who spotted one giant hog weed plant last year on the Flinton Road was shocked to find about a dozen of them this year along the same road. Giant hog weed, originally imported as an ornamental plant, is extremely dangerous, more so than any other plant growing in this area. The sap from broken stems and leaves can cause blindness if even a tiny drop on the hand is transferred to the eye. The sap on exposed skin, after exposure to sunlight, produces painful blisters which often leave scars which persist for years. So potent is the chemical agent in the hog weed sap, that if open wounds are contacted, it can have systemic effects through the whole body, including death. Allan Broek, Public Works

Supervisor for the Municipality of Tweed, has observed the plant north of Highway 7 and will be bringing the matter to the attention of the appropriate committee. He says his department’s attention has been mainly focused on the problems of the wild parsnip which is also becoming more prevalent in the area. Contact with wild parsnip can also result in rashes and skin eruptions, but only at certain stages of its development and not with the severe dangers presented by giant hogweed. Mr. Broek has developed a training manual for staff working outdoors who are likely to come into proximity with giant hog weed and wild parsnip, but so far the emphasis has been on the latter. He says that municipal staff people do not have the mandate or training to undertake an eradication program at this point. Until very recently, he has received no complaints or reports about giant hogweed. John Apsley, Noxious Weed Inspector for Hastings County, says he has not had extensive experience working with the plant, and has had only a few sightings and complaints.

According to the rules of the Ministry of Agriculture and Food, he says, landowners are responsible for dealing with giant hog weed if it occurs on their own property. Dealing with the weed is no simple matter. If attacked with weed trimmers or bush cutters, the toxic sap would be sprayed around the workers. One method of control involves cutting of the flower tops before the plant can reseed and then drenching the remainder of the plant with herbicide such as Round Up. Municipal staff people in Tweed are not licensed currently to apply these herbicides. Eradication of giant hogweed is a challenging proposition. Each plant may produce from 20,000 to 100,000 seeds which are carried by wind and water and can remain viable for up to 15 years in the soil. However, locating and identifying the plants and educating people about them might avoid tragic incidents of contact with giant hogweed, especially among children, who may be particularly vulnerable. It is disturbing to contemplate the consequences of allowing these plants to spread unchecked.

Warm weather draws out flies, mosquitoes and thieves EMC News - Campbellford - The weather might be nice but there are lots of people around who aren’t, and they’re up to their old tricks—breaking into homes. Northumberland OPP report officers have investigated a number of break-and-enters over the past week, some of which took place during the daytime. Police remind people that, even though the weather has been very warm at times of late, they should always lock their windows, as well as doors, when they leave their home. The OPP also suggest that residents who spot suspicious vehicles or persons who appear out of place to call 911 or 1-888-310-1122 and provide descriptions of the people, vehicles and licence plates. Their actions could prevent the commission of a crime or help to solve one. The OPP web site, <>, offers a number of useful resources, tips and links about improving personal safety. “Please do your part and ‘target harden’ what is yours so that it will still be there when you return,” the OPP said in a news release. Any anonymous information about a crime can be reported to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS). EMC Section B - Thursday, July 4, 2013 B3


Garden Bugs, The Big 3

The Good Earth:

Dan Clost EMC Lifestyles - Earwigs Earwigs are ugly little things; brown, flat, an inch long with pincers on their bottom ends. There is a myth that they like to crawl into peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ears. We seem predisposed to kill them without a second thoughtâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;other than a full-body shudder coinciding with the crunch.

Reality Check: EMC Lifestyles - I was six and a-half years old when I first rode on a plane by myself. My father was in Boston and it was time for my once-a-year, one-weeklong summer visit. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t remember much about that first short flight, but a few years later he moved to Vancouver. Since I lived in Toronto, that trip lasted four and a-half hours each way. I quickly learned that if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re flying as an unaccompanied minor, and you sniffle and cry a little, stewardesses give you cookies. And not the oatmeal raisin kind, the chocolate chip kind. I cried a lot. The rules have changed now, and you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t put kids on a plane by themselves anymore. That will likely make those once-a-year, week-long summer visits with â&#x20AC;&#x153;the other parentâ&#x20AC;? more difficult, and perhaps even less frequent. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not entirely sure thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a bad thing. Looking back on my early summers those visits were always odd. I felt more


Earwigs are rather benign critters; and while they can cause damage to plants, those plants are usually in a very clean garden with little debris. Earwigs prefer to chow down on dead stuff, either animal or vegetable. In the heat or light of the day, they like to hide in cool, damp places such as inside a peony flower or a tomato, especially one with an entry hole made by a slug. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the best thing about earwigs: they eat aphids. Garden snails Garden snails, especially the ones with the yellow and black stripes, aka banded snail, have shown up on our piece of this good earth in unprecedented numbers this year. They were rare enough at one time that our girls were quite excited to see Mrs. Snail. Now, I can walk by the hostas under the lilacs and see a dozen or so perched happily on their own salad plate.

Garden slugs Garden slugs, snails without homes. There are many, many different critters called â&#x20AC;&#x153;slugs,â&#x20AC;? most of them are small. I have seen, in tropical plants shipped to the greenhouse, slugs that are almost four inches long with a delightfully repulsive look about them. Generally, slugs are not good news as they can cause quite a bit of damage. Practically speaking, there is very little difference between a snail and a slug when it comes to chowing down on plants. Snails are easier to findâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t squish themselves into small cracks like a slug can. How do you know what is making the big holes in your favourite plantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leaves? Look for a slimy trail. No trail = earwig. All three are nocturnal unless itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a dark, cloudy day; the best way to know which of three you have is to go out after dark with a flashlight and catch them in the act.

litter and mulch to deny daytime hiding places; you can introduce frogs, starlings and garter snakes. You can sprinkle diatomaceous earth or wood ashes. Or you can accept the fact that they are a part of the environment and share the planet with them. I prefer to invite them in for a beer. Digression - A tip of the hat to the second generation Rinaldiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. I am a car racing fan. Recently, the folks out at Brighton Speedway brought in a touring late model series (the big boys of dirt) to entertain us. The upfront money was high and the ticket prices were much higher than usual. The stands were packed, the racing was fantastic and our local drivers who survived the qualifying heats were not out of place in the main race. I hope it was profitable for the promoters. It is good to see a small business take a considerable gamble and pull it off.

The summertime custody split awkward than a Quebec separatist at the Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s garden party. You didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t belong, and you spent your life trying to figure out small talk. Sure, we did some lovely sightseeing, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m very grateful for my fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wife who made such great efforts to include me, but it was still not right. Perhaps because I never lived with my father I never bonded with him. And one week a year canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t accomplish that. If your ex is raising your child (or children), donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fool yourself into thinking you can be a parent only on holidays. Move closer to your children and be involved in their lives. Yet Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not sure the opposite custody arrangement, where the children see both parents equally, is that easy either. The problem with joint custody is that no adults know the childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s whole life.

In a kidâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mind, Mom knows everything that happened to me on Week 1, and Dad knows everything that happened on Week 2, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m the only one who knows what happened in both. And because each home has different rules and different ways of relating, the child has to almost split in two. And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just that; they spend their lives in flux, always moving from house to house and living out of suitcases or hockey bags rather than out of closets and drawers. We would never live like that, yet we ask hundreds of thousands of Canadian children to every day. Custody arrangements are always built around the parentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; best interests. As a society, we may give lip service to it, but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not really interested in the childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best interests, or we wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t

do things like this to them. I can think of several friends who divorced their husbands, claiming their husbands were too harsh. The family would be more peaceful and better off without him. Now that harsh, demanding dad gets the kids by himself 50 per cent of the time. Even if he were harsh and demanding, which in these cases the guys really werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, how does splitting up save the kids from this? It only puts them in his house without you there to run interference. Divorce can definitely be in the kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; best interests when there is abuse, or open hostility, or addictions. But these are a minority of divorces. Most of the time we want to make our own lives better, and we rationalize it saying that whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good for us is whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good for them. Yet we would never live the way

Sheila Wray Gregoire we ask so many children to. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in a difficult place in your relationship, I just ask that you picture your childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s future summers if you break up. Kids always bear the brunt of adult decisions. We owe it to them to put aside our own issues and put the kids first.

Hoarding coalition devising action plan to reduce risks posed by extreme clutter By John Campbell

â&#x153;&#x201D; TUNE-UPS/SPRINGS â&#x153;&#x201D; SAFETY INSPECTIONS â&#x153;&#x201D; SUSPENSION SERVICE â&#x153;&#x201D; GENERAL REPAIRS

Generally, the big three are not that much of a problem unless you begin to notice it. Sort of like ants in your lawn. Short grass or long grass doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make any difference as to the number of ants your sward contains; the former just means you can see more of them. So, back to the pests of the day: if they are not causing you distress, just leave them be. (An exception can be made: pear slugs on purple leaf sandcherries.) You will never kill them all but you can manage them somewhat. In the case of slugs and snails, you can always turn the tables and eat them, but cook well because they can be vectors of parasites that will cause you internal stress. You can squish them; you can set up little tubs of beer with a squirt of dish detergent. For earwigs you can roll up some damp newspapers; in the morning squeeze the ends closed, walk out into the street and unroll. You can remove

EMC News - Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clutter and then thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hoarding so extreme it can put your own health at risk, and jeopardize the well-being of others, if left unchecked. The scope of the problem was outlined in a presentation public health inspectors Carol Chan and Sami El-Hajjeh made recently to the board of the Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge District Health Unit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People who hoard are usually socially isolated [and] live in unsafe housing conditions,â&#x20AC;? Chan said. Their overwhelming accumulation of goods creates multiple household hazards that increase the risk of fire, structural collapse, falls, infestations, and respiratory infections. Hoarding, according to the Mayo Clinic in the United States, is â&#x20AC;&#x153;the excessive collection of items, along with the inability to discard them,â&#x20AC;? often resulting in â&#x20AC;&#x153;such cramped living conditions that homes may be filled to capacity, with only narrow pathways winding through stacks of clutter. Some people also collected animals, keeping dozens or hundreds of pets often in unsanitary conditions.â&#x20AC;? Hoarding may be a symptom of obsessivecompulsive disorder but the people who act this way donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see their behaviour as a problem, which makes â&#x20AC;&#x153;treatment very challenging,â&#x20AC;? Chan said. The reality show, Hoarders, â&#x20AC;&#x153;doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t reflect real lifeâ&#x20AC;? because â&#x20AC;&#x153;thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no quick fix,â&#x20AC;? she said. It takes a lot of patience, effort and the involvement

of professionals â&#x20AC;&#x153;to help them to understand their compulsion, so they can live a safer and more enjoyable life.â&#x20AC;? Chan said hoarding also poses a danger to neighbours, and makes it difficult for firefighters, police and EMS personnel to do their jobs when responding to an emergency in the household. Over the years there have been reports of people dying after their huge collections caught on fire and they were unable to escape. El-Hajjeh said a multidisciplinary approach works best to address the issue, which agencies in Northumberland County have done by forming a coalition last summer. The group is currently working on an action plan that will define their role and responsibilities in helping individuals receive treatment. He cited various factors why the problem will worsen in future, including an aging population and easy online access to the purchase of products that are then delivered to the home. Chan said hoarding occurs in â&#x20AC;&#x153;any age groupâ&#x20AC;? but â&#x20AC;&#x153;it gets worseâ&#x20AC;? as a person ages. City of Kawartha Lakes Councillor Doug Elmslie complained that when his municipality tries to enforce its â&#x20AC;&#x153;clean and clear bylawâ&#x20AC;? in situations where â&#x20AC;&#x153;people accumulate treasuresâ&#x20AC;? outside their homes prompting neighbours to complain, the court usually extends the time they are granted to clean up Public health inspector Carol Chan said â&#x20AC;&#x153;thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no quick fixâ&#x20AC;? to helping their property so â&#x20AC;&#x153;the problem never gets solved.â&#x20AC;? people who hoard deal with their disorder.

Exploring Vancouver Island’s Pacific Rim National Park Reserve EMC Lifestyles - Pacific Rim National Park Reserve is made up of three separate regions: Long Beach, the Broken Group Islands, and the West Coast Trail; the entire park encompasses 511 square kilometres of land and ocean along the southwest corner of Vancouver Island. This awesome park is primarily renowned for its lush rainforests and rugged coastline, and it’s definitely worth a visit. I spent my time in the most accessible and popular region of this park reserve, Long Beach. It’s the coastal area located between the villages of Ucluelet and Tofino, and it has the most extensive sand dune/beach area found on all of Vancouver Island. I

low tide can’t be completed at high tide. Furthermore, since this area is considered to be “Canada’s surfing capital,” a lot of surfers congregate along here at particular times of the day, depending on the tides/waves. I learned that they, too, must be cautious, for there are dangerous rip currents (powerful currents of water moving away from the shore) and the water temperature remains quite cold yearround, so there are worries about undertows and hypothermia for surfers and swimmers. The Long Beach unit of Pacific Rim National Park Reserve is located within the traditional territories of the Ucluelet and Tia-o-qui-aht First Nations, and the park is termed a “reserve” because of

A combination of driftwood and mist in Pacific Rim National Park Reserve.

explored much of this land between the tides (the seashore), and I discovered that there are generally two low and high tides each day, so activities had to be planned accordingly. For example, some of the wide, sandy beaches at low tide disappear at high tide, so visitors don’t want to be caught out there at the wrong time (warning signs are posted), and certain hiking trails, such as Combers Beach Trail and Schooner Cove Trail, that are accessible at

pending treaty settlements. More of the natural and cultural history of the area can be found by visiting the Pacific Rim Visitor Centre at the Tofino-Ucluelet junction on Highway #4 and the Kwisitis Visitor Centre located at the end of Wick Road, 3.5 kilometres from the highway. Green Point Campground, the only campground located in this section of the park reserve, is located on a forested terrace above the beach; it has 112 walkin and drive-in campsites.

While I was in this Long Beach section, I explored several excellent hiking trails, including Radar Hill, where a short, steep path leads to a panoramic view of the ocean, inlets, rainforest, and mountains; Shoreline Bog, where a wide boardwalk traverses an area of acidic soil that stunts the growth of the aged trees; Combers Beach, which leads to the beach via a steep slope, and from here there’s an opportunity to spot sea lions and nesting birds on nearby Sea Lion Rocks; Schooner Cove, which took me to the cove/beach, via long flights of wooden stairs, and then offered me a glimpse of the distant village of Esowista; and the Rainforest Trail, which also included long flights of stairs—and tree boughs thickly draped with hanging moss. However, before going on any of these trails, you should check about tides and trail conditions. As I previously stated, some of the trails are not accessible at high tide, and I also discovered that some may be closed for other reasons, too. For example, when I visited the park reserve, two of the trails were “off limits” because of “high bear activity.” After all, there’s a lot of wildlife in Pacific Rim National Park Reserve. According to posted signs, I was in “black bear, wolf, and cougar country.” Yet another section of this park reserve, the Broken Group Islands, is made up of more than 100 small islands and islets in Barkley Sound. Visitors here will find a stunning maze of channels, densely forested islands, shell beaches, tide pools, exposed islets, sheltered bays, and windswept rocks. This area is accessible only by boat. Therefore, it’s particularly popular with kayakers, and they’ll find a few camping areas scattered throughout the islands. The other region of the park reserve, the West Coast Trail, is now a very popular long-distance (75-kilometre) hiking trail. Once a trade and travel path, then a lifesaving route used to assist in the rescue of shipwrecked sailors, it has now been transformed into a challenging, multi-day adventure trek that takes the experienced backpacker

I found this sign near the park.

Are you in the four per cent? Continued from page B4

Christopher Beveridge, the health unit’s director of environmental health, said “enforcement has been the traditional response” to hoarding but “it doesn’t work,” that’s why the coalition was formed, “to solve the problem from a prevention point of view.” Chan said statistics in the United States indicate about four per cent of the population hoard, a proportion she said was likely the case in Canada as well. Christine Herrington said “there are probably people out there who have tried to influence family members to change their patterns of behaviour and it’s probably fallen on deaf ears.” She asked if they should they call the health unit for help, and Chan replied: “Definitely.” The International OCD Foundation Hoarding Center has a Clutter Image Rating Scale that measures the amount of clutter in a kitchen, bedroom or living room with the aid of photographs. People whose accommodations are rated four or higher on a scale of nine are encouraged to get help for their hoarding. The scale can be found at < pdf>.

EMC Events - Warkworth The Warkworth Western Weekend returns for its 16th year with the Stars Western Riding Club hosting the popular gaming show on Friday night, featuring local riders.

The Percy Agricultural Society (Warkworth Fair board) and the RAM Rodeo Tour will again feature all the thrills of a real rodeo on July 5, 6 and 7. “The rodeo, started by the Percy Agricultural Society, and run for many years by the

Travellers Hockey Team, has been a centrepiece of the summer in Warkworth. The fair board is excited to continue to host this amazing event,” said Tina Spooner, chair of the committee. “We will be featuring barrels, pole bending, Dash for Cash, key

hole and a stakes barrel class,” said Spooner. “We have a 12 and under pony, youth, and adult divisions,” she added. The cost is $5 to enter each class and the paybacks are: 1st place $25, 2nd place $20, 3rd place $15, 4th place $10 and 5th place $5. Stake class is $10 with $100 added money. “The gaming show is open to all local riders. Registrations start at 5 p.m. on Friday and the show starts at 6 p.m. sharp! The beer gardens and vendors will be open. The Masons are holding a barbeque dinner, This event is free to spectators. “We are already having a lot of entries coming in for Friday night, so people need to preenter to avoid the late fee,” said Spooner. “So come out and have something to eat and a cold beverage and enjoy a fast action evening, from your own local talented horse riders,” said

Spooner, with enthusiasm. She and her committee have been working hard to make this year another successful event. The Ram Rodeo happens on Saturday and Sunday at 2 p.m. On Saturday night there will again be a Country Video Dance Party, a venue popular with rodeo goers. The Junior Farmers will again be running the bar. On Saturday, from 5 until 7 p.m. there will be a southern barbeque cowboy dinner put on by the Ramblin’ Pit featuring smoked beef and pulled pork “with all the fixins.” Ticket prices are $16 for adults and $10 for children. “A limited amount of tickets are being sold so again get yours early,” said Spooner. Advance tickets are available at Warkworth Farm Supply, Newman Oliver & McCarten Insurance in Campbellford and at Greenhawk in Stirling. On Sunday morning an ecumenical service will be held on the fairgrounds at 11 a.m. Everyone is asked to bring their own chair.

The cowboy breakfast rodeo special is from 9 to 11 a.m. Again this year the committee is delegating events to local organizations, hoping to help each group raise money. “We will have lots of new exciting vendors this year too,” said Spooner. The Western Warkworth Weekend committee this year includes: Tina Spooner, chair; Christine Edwards co-chair; and directors Tracy Russell, Sandra Mitchell, Ann-Marie Switzer, Jenna Ward, Mark Switzer, Schelle Holmes, Jake and Cherie Whalen, Greg Torrance, Charlene Wells, Kylie Spooner and Jessica Russell. In the past the Warkworth Ram Rodeo event has raised money for a new score clock and a new sound system in the Warkworth arena and has been used to support local churches, Millennium Park, minor sports, the skateboard park, the Santa Claus parade and more.

SFT preparing Stirling’s story


from our SFT Young Company and also from local drama clubs, dance schools, college theatre programs and church choirs. “Right now we’re looking for details about local stories,” Vanderlip says, and while there are many well-documented events there are others that are equally important. “Family connections and oral histories are critical because they put a human face on it. These are real stories about real people,” he says. “I’ve written a few Canadian historical plays,” says Turtle, “but this is very different.” Those, he says, focused on a person or a small group of people while the Stirling Historical Community Play Project is about a place. “But the good news is, Stirling is a very interesting character.” Working in connection with several local groups, including officials at Farmtown Park, the SFT is hoping to mount a fullscale production in 2015.


EMC Entertainment - Stirling - The Stirling Festival Theatre (SFT) will be bringing a little local history to the stage. SFT Managing Director David Vanderlip recently announced the theatre was successful in its recent grant application for Ontario Arts Council funding to finance the development of the project, culminating with a staged reading next year. “This is great news for us,” Vanderlip says, “because it gives us an opportunity not only to bring the community to the theatre, but also bring theatre to the community.” While still in the research stages, the play will focus on Stirling’s history and its people with the intention of wide-reaching public involvement. A staged reading is scheduled for April 2014 at the theatre. “We have to thank the Ontario Arts Council, an agency of the Government of Ontario for funding support for this project,” he says, noting it is important to both the theatre and the community. “Along with playwright Richard Turtle, we hope to engage the community in the creation of a play around the various significant historical events that have occurred in the Stirling area over the last 400 years,” Vanderlip says. “Champlain travelled these shores around 1615 and this area was regularly travelled as immigrants moved from Lower to Upper Canada.” And there are plenty of other stories to bring us up to the present day. “In addition to professional theatre actors, we intend to utilize actual descendants of the stories and events and engage young and old from the community with an eye to incorporating up to 200 community members in the acting company,” he says. A significant portion of the acting company, he adds, will be comprised of new generation, emerging artists, drawn

Garage to become a gallery for contemporary art By John Campbell

EMC News - Warkworth - A not-forprofit arts organization based in Toronto wants to transform a Main Street garage here into a gallery that showcases contemporary art and includes space for an artistin-residence. To achieve its goal, Sunday Drive Arts Projects has enlisted the help of the Municipality of Trent Hills which has agreed to act as the lead applicant for $150,000 in funding from the Ontario Trillium Foundation and $100,000 from the Canada Cultural Spaces Fund. Applications were to be submitted this week. Most of the money will be used to renovate the Johnston Co. car garage, the balance on programming “That’s our plan and we’re working toward it,” but at this point, it’s “far from set in stone,” cautioned Tania Thompson, founder of Sunday Drive Arts Projects.

Still, “we feel pretty good” funding will be forthcoming, she said. “We’re super excited … there’s been such great encouragement from everybody,” including the owner of the garage, Mike Johnston, who continues to service vehicles of valued clients at the garage, which is up for sale or lease. Supporters include the Warkworth Business Association, the Trent Hills and District Chamber of Commerce and Northumberland County’s tourism department, she said. Two others are involved in the organization with Thompson, an arts administrator: Scott Smith, a film producer and artist, and Randall Okita, a filmmaker and educator.

The three are “very optimistic” the gallery will be ready to open by the end of the summer in 2014. Thompson said the exterior of the garage will be given a facelift but will essentially retain its look so that it “tells the history of Warkworth” and the building, Thompson said. She said she “fell in love with the village” when she owned a weekend house in Warkworth for a time and later worked as a consultant in helping to develop the Warkworth Lilac Festival. “Our mandate is to partner with other organizations [in Toronto] that need to do outreach,” she said. “The whole name is supposed to conjure up this idea of getting outside the city and

worth and just increase it,” she said, by featuring pieces of a kind that can’t be packaged and taken home, such as installation work. It’s “an expansion of the idea of Warkworth as a designated arts community,” Thompson said.   Warkworth and area “is so beautiful” that international artists will find it attractive to “come with an idea” to incorporate the local landscape into their work. They would stay for three to six weeks to make their art, exhibit it and talk about it, Thompson said. One of the gallery’s main programs will be directed to young people over 14, to make them aware of culture and how they can “feed into” it, Thompson said. To keep the gallery operating after it A not-for-profit organization, Sunday Drive Arts Projects, has applied for opens, memberships will be sold, sponsorfunding to convert the garage at the east end of Main Street into a nonships sought, and fund-raising activities commercial gallery that will include space for an artist-in-residence.

Tenth year for the Moira Lake regatta By Diane Sherman

EMC News - Madoc - Members of the Moira Lake Property Owners Association continue to support the non-motorized regatta they originated ten years ago. In 2003 a group of MLPOA members began a family fun event at the Kiwanis beach and boat launch on Moira Lake. They made their paddle boats, kayaks and canoes available for anyone to use. Bob Hadley, MLPOA president, was at Centre Hastings municipal council June 26, to give $500 from his group to help with expenses of the event. He told council, “Each year organizers

try to encourage more families to come out from the village and rural areas. For some of these kids it may be one of the few times they have access to a canoe, kayak or paddle boat.” In 2010 the regatta became a sub-committee of the municipal parks and recreation committee and the name was changed to Centre Hastings Regatta. It continues to be a free family day with prizes for everyone and a chance to win a kayak from Pro Tackle Musky shop. Organizers have a new category this year, the cardboard boat race. Committee member Hazel Gill was at the Madoc market last Saturday with her

cardboard boat called Flower Power. Gill said there are rules for building the boat and encourages potential entrants to contact her at 613-473-5624 or look for directions on the Centre Hastings Regatta Facebook page and information on the Centre Hastings municipal web site. She said the original instructions came from the Cape Coral Regatta <>. The big day is scheduled for Saturday, July 13, which coincides with Ontario’s Licence Free Fishing week. Registration for races begins at 9 a.m. with the paddle boat races launching off at 10 a.m.

Moira Lake Property Owners Association contributed $500 toward expenses of the 10th annual Moira Lake non-motorized regatta. Secretary Dana Gawley and president Bob Hadley presented Parks and Recreation director Jeff Bitton, centre, with the big cheque at Centre Hastings council meeting June 26. Photo: Diane Sherman

Muriel Gribbons, who passed away June 27th, 2007 Mom, it’s been six years since I heard your voice and I miss you every day. I awake each morning to start a new day But the pain of losing you never goes away. I go about the things I have to do And as the hours pass I think again of you. I want to call you and just hear your voice Then I remember that I have no choice For you are not there and now my heart cries Just to see you again to tell you goodbye To say Mum I love you and I always will And hope that much of you, in me you’ve instilled. The day that you left I just didn’t know That you were going where I couldn’t go. And now all my memories of you are so dear But gosh, how I miss you and wish you were here. Who now can hear me when I need to cry? It so hard to tell you “Mum goodbye.” Someday I know all will be well And I’ll see you again with stories to tell Of how you were missed and how we have grown And how good it is to finally be home. Until then my memories of you I’ll keep near And I’ll pass them on to those who are dear. I miss you Mum, Love you and miss you, Wendy, Dale, Brendan and Courtney

Hospice reaches milestone with first admission By John Campbell

EMC News - Warkworth - The Bridge Hospice has crossed a milestone supporters eyed eight years ago when they began their journey to establish Northumberland County’s first residential hospice: it received its first resident in mid-June.   “We are doing what we set out to do so many years ago,” hospice chair Dr. Bob Henderson told the annual general meeting of the registered charity June 27. He thanked “the three visionaries

who lit the candle that other people took up”—Lynda Pecora, Pauline Faull and Rosaleen Dunne—and all those who played a part in fulfilling the organization’s mission, to address the needs of the terminally ill. More than 100 volunteers along with donors and staff “understand that provision of compassionate end-oflife care to our neighbours, friends, [and] family is an important part of community,” Henderson said. He noted The Bridge Hospice encountered roadblocks “quite a few times” along the way that seemed insurmountable, until everyone put their heads together and “managed to overcome each of those challenges.” Henderson said the “next big challenge” is to find “stable and predictable” funding that will allow us to operate with a little less stress,” he said, “and I am confident that we will find the answer to that as we go forward.” The organization still has slightly more than $47,000

from the $188,000 the Trillium Foundation provided to help with its costs, and will look again to the foundation for assistance once the money is spent.

“We need to be creative and look at what it is they’re prepared to pay for and figure out how to ask for the right thing.” Although Trillium prefers that you not apply for the same thing twice, “they are very open to receiving requests from us,” Henderson said. “We need to be creative and look at what it is they’re prepared to pay for and figure out how to ask for the right thing.” A key “part of the pitch” in applying for funding is to make note of the “sweat equity” that has been invested in the local organization by volunteers. “The last few years we’ve

been averaging close to a thousand hours a month,” he said, in design, construction, fund raising, committee and board work, training, and now, round-theclock care. The hospice balance sheet showed it had a surplus of more than $566,000 at the end of its fiscal year March 31. “The surplus is there for us to continue to operate with, and we can get families to stop we hope as we go forward that and consider their own heart we are able to identify [other] health, it will work for all dis- revenue streams that will help to eases.” To register, or to find out more information, visit <>.

Spreading heart health awareness EMC News - Belleville - The local branch of the Heart and Stroke Foundation is hoping to start something big this month with their first annual Walk the Block Challenge, and Heart and Stroke Foundation area manager Maureen Corrigan said it’s all about connecting with as many people as possible. “It’s a chance for people to remember loved ones lost, celebrate lives saved and protect your heart,” Corrigan said. On July 10, individuals and families not only in the region, but across the country are being encouraged to take part in the first annual Walk the Block Challenge. This grassroots event doesn’t take place in any one location—rather, the idea is that wherever you are on July 10 at 6 p.m., you take part in the challenge by walking your block to both raise awareness of heart history and get a little exercise in the process. “Everyone participates from their own house, from their cottage, from their work … if they’re on vacation in Hawaii, you can walk there,” Corrigan said. Corrigan said that in Canada one person dies every seven minutes from heart disease, and that while recent medical advances are reducing that number, further research needs constant funding. In support of that goal, the Walk the Block Challenge also has a fund-raising aspect, and Corrigan said they hope to raise in the area of $5,000 from the inaugural event. Once a donation is made, participants receive a “Walk the Block” poster to put in their window, which in turn promotes discussion about heart health in the community. “It’s to get people talking about their family heart history, and to celebrate their family heart history … they should know about it,” Corrigan said. “Even if you have no heart disease in your family you still have every reason to keep your heart healthy and strong, so it’s definitely for everyone.” In support of the event, Belleville city council recently declared July 10 Walk

the Block day in an effort to promote heart health and awareness. “There’s nothing better than a healthy community, and it all starts with healthy families,” Corrigan said. “If

sustain us,” Henderson said after the meeting attended by about 30 people at St. Paul’s United Church. He said the Trillium funding supports staffing at The Bridge—an executive director and administrative assistant— which will have to be replaced when it runs out. “That’s a significant chunk of our operating dollars, [and] we have to find those people who are able to help us fill that gap,” he said.

Following a presentation of a plaque recognizing former board members for their contributions, Dean Peters, a former board chair, praised Henderson, saying as “the captain of the ship” he “hasn’t got the recognition that he deserves” for the calming influence he has exercised in solving problems. “He deserves an enormous amount of credit for the leadership over the last few years,” Peters said.
