Proudly serving Brighton, Colborne and Area

Council squabbles again – this time over who’s fit to oversee integrity By Sarah Hyatt Brighton – Council here will yet again install a watchdog to ensure “integrity” over its deliberations. On Monday evening, CAO Bill Watson brought forward a recommendation to council to appoint John Ewart as integrity commissioner for the municipality. “He’s well-known to this council and to me,” said Watson. “He’s known for being very reasonable and approachable – he’s plain-spoken.” Watson said Ewart seemed like the perfect fit for the job and felt confident in his recommendation, given Ewart’s work in a number of neighbouring municipalities such as Cobourg and given that he knows the terrain. Ewart serves as integrity commissioner for Cobourg and other nearby municipalities. “I know there’s been some discussion around how this is appropriate,” acknowledged Watson, as reports on social media earlier indicated Andre Marin; the former Ombudsman of Ontario, had expressed interest in the position and hadn’t felt the process of selection thus far had been fair. In e-mail correspondence read aloud at the meeting, sent to Mayor Mark Walas and also posted on social media, Marin expressed concerns over not hearing back from the mayor regarding the position and that the selection process should be open and transparent. He asked that council defer the CAO’s recommended appointment until a transparent competition had taken place and provided candidates the opportunity to be vetted on their qualifications. Watson says the Law Society of Upper Canada recognizes 28 legal professionals identified as specialists in municipal law – Ewart is one-of-three more local candidates and one-of-17 of the private practice candidates. Marin is not on the list, he later noted, when asked by Walas if he was.

Walas, addressing concerns that were aired on social media, read aloud a reply to Marin. Walas said he did reply to Marin’s e-mails and passed his subsequent requests to staff. “Recommendations come from staff on the use of professional services which are presented to council for discussion and decision, as is the case in tonight’s meeting,” he said. Walas encouraged Marin to attend to hear the CAO’s report and council’s discussion. “This report is being tabled in an open meeting and is a clear example of an open transparent and accountable process – for you to suggest otherwise is disappointing,” he continued. An integrity commissioner oversees issues of corporate governance and appropriate behaviour in regard to the conduct of municipal business in the public domain, Watson explained in his report. In the event a municipality does not appoint a commissioner, and an issue or complaint is raised, issues are then referred to provincial government for review and judgment. While some, like Councillor Mary Tadman, were prepared to support the CAO’s recommendation Monday, adding she was “very comfortable” with the appointment and process, given past experience with Ewart, others were not. “I believe if we behave ourselves and follow the code of conduct – this isn’t going to cost us five cents,” she said. “I have no problem with this, but if it takes another council meeting to go over the procedural bylaw that’s OK too.” Councillor John Martinello voiced concerns as to whether or not the CAO’s recommendation was in accordance with the municipality’s procedural bylaw and outlined his desire for three proposals in total to be obtained prior to appointment, to err on the side of caution. Martinello noted funds for these services had not been budgeted for and

called money spent on the last integrity commissioner “a waste.” He said the recommended appointment made him “uncomfortable.” He wasn’t alone with his concerns, despite Watson’s reassurance to council Monday; he had no concerns over any violations of the bylaw in this context. Councillor Roger McMurray said he would also like to see the appointment be a more competitive process. McMurray similarly expressed concerns of past practices and the commissioner and code of conduct being used as a “weapon.” In the last term, it was apparent the process drove councillors apart rather than uniting members, he said. And it cost tens-of-thousands of dollars, he noted.

“As a taxpayer then, it was disheartening to see money wasted hiring behavioural police, because adults couldn’t play nicely in the sandbox,” McMurray said. “No one had a behavioural epiphany as far as I know.” To have the role simply appointed on the recommendation of the CAO, McMurray said it kind of reminded him of how the situation was handled previously, when Amberley Gavel was appointed back in 2012. Councillor Steven Baker said he couldn’t believe the municipality would entertain discussion surrounding the appointment of an integrity commissioner, whatsoever. “When I was elected as a new councillor back in 2014, I was approached by several members of this council

and was made privy to, I guess, the horror stories of what happened regarding the code of conduct and the integrity commissioner during last term,” he said. “Those same proponents have now brought back the code of conduct and now we’re looking at appointing another integrity commissioner. I can’t believe it to be honest. I will most certainly not be supporting this.” Council chose not to accept the CAO’s proposal Monday evening. Instead, a motion was referred back to staff to receive two other proposals by candidates for the role of integrity commissioner. Please see “Council” on page 3

Brighton-Cramahe TownshipTrent Hills – Northumberland OPP dealt with 213 incidents over a four-day period (Aug. 8-11). They included: • Shortly after midnight Aug. 11 police responded to a report of a missing senior who suffers from dementia. Officers found the Campbellford man lying face down in a ditch approximately 200 metres from his residence. He was unable to get up. EMS attended and transported the senior to a nearby hospital for treatment of minor injuries. • A Brighton resident requested police speak to his elderly neighbour about turning down the volume on his television. Officers determined that the senior was hard of hearing and informed him of the complaint. • OPP responded Aug. 10 to a domestic disturbance at a Campbellford residence where one partner was threatening self-harm. He was taken to a nearby hospital for a mental health assessment. Police are investigating the incident. • Police attended a Campbellford residential complex where two females were arguing over rumours apparently spread by one

of them. Officers spoke to everyone involved but laid no charges. Alcohol was a contributing factor to the escalation of the disagreement, the OPP said. • A Cramahe Township business on Industrial Park Road reported a break-in that took place three days earlier, on Saturday, Aug. 6, in which several items were taken. • A Campbellford parent gave a deactivated cell phone to her children to play with not realizing that it was still capable of dialing 911, which happened. Officers attended the address and ensured that there was no emergency • Police were called to a Cramahe Twp. home where a man was threatening self-harm Aug. 8. EMS transported him to a nearby hospital for treatment. • A 33-year-old Quinte West man was arrested and charged in Brighton for breaching the conditions of a probation order not to associate with a certain individual. He was held for a bail hearing scheduled the next day. Northumberland OPP officers also investigated 16 motor vehicle collisions, and 48 traffic-related complaints during the same period.

Council squabbles again – this time over who’s fit to oversee integrity Continued from page 1 Walas noted council has been months with a code of conduct, with no issues to date. The mayor, however, said he sees no harm in encouraging a few other individuals to put their names in. “I presume there will be some sort of criteria identified in terms of expectations for the municipality,” he said. An integrity commissioner would not just assist the municipality in terms of investigations or in rendering judgment on integrity issues, says Watson. Advice, clarification on potential integrity issues, help with education or with interpretation of the Municipal Act for the various roles within the corporation would also be benefits of an appointment. Watson says the addition would ultimately be a good resource for the municipality, rather than “us sort of flying by the seat of our pants.” The more favourable option is to have an appointed designate, available to reference and advise council and staff when they’re unclear on a course of action, he said. Watson predicts it could be “problematic” otherwise. In the event a commissioner was needed, rather than turning to the province and “paying their bill,” to come analyze the issue – it makes more sense to have some-

one who has knowledge of the municipality on hand to assist, he says. In Ewart’s proposal, it stated he would be paid on an as-needed basis. No retainer would be required. The hourly fee outlined was around $275 for services. Depending on staff activity, it was estimated annual costs would have been under $15,000. Extra costs would be dependent on how often Ewart’s advice and expertise were needed. “Mr. Ewart is recognized as having considerable expertise in municipal governance and legislative rules – his firm, is relatively local [out of Peterborough] and he can be available in-person or by telephone, when convenient,” Watson outlined in his report. Councillor Laura Vink predicts the municipality has nothing to worry about. “There seems to be this idea that if we appoint someone, there will be a complaint,” she said. Concerns of the last council should be tossed aside, she said, and this council should simply get the proposals and move forward.

Campfires just not worth it says deputy chief



By Sarah Hyatt Brighton – Local residents are being reminded to take the complete fire ban issued recently seriously. “We’ve never seen this kind of drought in this area – not in many, many years,” says Brighton’s Deputy Fire Chief and fire prevention and training co-ordinator, Rick Caddick. His statements were made prior to Tuesday’s rainfall but as of press time, it was unclear how the fire ban situation may have been affected by the rain. The municipality issued a complete fire ban on Monday, Aug. 8. Caddick says the Brighton Fire Department is continuing to monitor conditions closely. Currently, essentially all of Southern Ontario, including Brighton is nearly under this “extreme rating,” says Caddick. “We’re watching that red area grow every day,” the deputy fire chief said. Daily, the department and deputy chief are monitoring the Canadian Wildland Fire Information System, and fire weather maps or the fire danger forecast. “We’re very grateful during this time for our residents’ co-operation,” says Caddick. “This is very serious.” The information system illustrates on a “relative index,” how easy it is to ignite vegetation, how difficult a fire may be to control and how much damage a fire may do, according to Natural Resources Canada. Under the extreme rating on the index, fires in these conditions are expected to be “fast-spreading, highintensity crown fires.” Caddick urges residents to rethink throwing that cigarette butt out the window of the car. “Imagine trying to put on a 100 pounds of gear in this weather, then pick up a broom or a hose,” he said. “It’s dangerous for our firefighters too – to attempt to battle a blaze in this heat; it’s taxing on their health as well. This isn’t an easy task.” Any fire in these conditions can be very difficult to control, the deputy chief explained. Suppression actions are usually limited to flanks, with only indirect actions possible against the fire’s head, as outlined on the Canadian Wildland Fire Information System legend. “Fires when under this rating spread so fast,” said Caddick. “It will spread so fast, you can’t catch it and you can’t get in front of it, cause you’ll get hurt.” With forecasted hot, dry weather continuing, the complete fire ban will remain in effect until further notice. The ban issued applies to all residents and visitors, and prohibits all open-air fires – campfires and fireworks even. Any outdoor burning poses a potential threat, says Caddick. Portable propane fire pits, gas or propane stoves and barbecues designed for cooking or heated are still permitted. 4

Codrington vendors celebrate honey harvest dry, Yan Skoba said. They were “getting around 80 pounds of honey per hive,” well above the 40 to 50 pounds obtained previous years. Skoba said many beekeepers celebrate the first harvest. “Bees give us this wonderful product that is a pleasure to have and always something great to see,” he said.

BRIGHTON HEALTH SERVICES CENTRE DIRECTOR – BRIGHTON HEALTH SERVICES CENTRE Since 2002, the Brighton Health Services Centre, a registered charity, has been managed by a volunteer Board of Directors. In the past fourteen years, the BHSC has developed into a facility that houses a YMCA fitness facility, a Family Health Team, an Ontario Early Years Centre, and satellite offices of the South East Community Care Access Centre and a County of Northumberland social services hub. While not directly involved in the operations of these tenant organizations, the BHSC Board oversees building maintenance and lease administration to ensure ongoing financial self-sustainability. Since 2009, the Board has also managed a community health grant program that has provided grants to more than 25 local not-for-profit community organizations involved in health and wellness initiatives. This program was recently re-named the Brian Todd Memorial Community Fund in honour of the BHSC’s founding Chairman. The BHSC Board of Directors is inviting applications from local residents who would like to serve as a volunteer Director. Knowledge of property management, lease administration and accounting would be an asset. This can be a rewarding experience for those who have a keen interest in advancing the health and wellness of the Brighton community.

Is 2016 the New 1936?

Hegel remarks somewhere that all great world-historic facts and personages appear, so to speak, twice. He forgot to add: the first time as tragedy, the second time as farce. Karl Marx, 1852 We would all prea farce to a tragGwynne Dyer fer edy, so let us hope that Marx was right. But he has been wrong a few times in the past, so we must entertain the possibility that what awaits us is tragedy. The “first time”, in this instance, was the 1930s, when the painfully slow recovery from a global financial crash led to political polarisation, beggar-my neighbour trade wars, and the rise to power of anti-democratic, ultranationalist leaders in a number of countries. The consequences included the Second World War, death camps, the first and only use of nuclear weapons, and forty years of Cold War. Well, we had our global financial crash in 2008, and the recovery has certainly been slow. Average incomes in many Western countries have still not recovered to pre-2008 levels, and the growth of nationalist and racist sentiment is evident in major countries like Britain (the Brexit vote), France (the rise of the National Front), and above all the United States (Trump). The wave of non-violent democratic revolutions that transformed so many developing countries at the end of the Cold War ended with the failure of the “Arab Spring”, leaving a new dictatorship in Egypt and civil wars across the Middle East. In parts of Asia the process has even gone into reverse (military rule in Thailand, death squads run by populist elected governments in the Philippines and Indonesia). Authoritarian, ultra-nationalist governments hostile to the European Union have come to power in post-Communist Eastern Europe (Fidesz in Hungary, the Law and Justice government in Poland). And a trade war is brewing between the United States and China no matter who wins the US election in November. You could add to the list of worries a new ruler in China (Xi Jinping) who is more autocratic and readier to play the nationalist card than any other Chinese leader since Mao, and a Japanese prime minister (Shinzo Abe) who

promises to remove the anti-war clause from the constitution. Not to mention that addict to high-stakes international brinkmanship, Russia’s Vladimir Putin. Quite a list, but does it really mean that we are back in 1936 (fascists in power in Germany, Italy and Japan, civil war in Spain, the Great Purge in the Soviet Union), with the catastrophe of global war just three years away? Or is it just a grab-bag of local problems, failures and worries of the sort that are bound to exist in a world of almost 200 independent countries? Probably the latter. Right- and left-wing parties are a legitimate and inevitable part of any democratic society, but they both tend to spin off or mutate into more extreme and paranoid versions of themselves in times of economic hardship. It is difficult to argue, however, that the times are really that bad at the moment. Times are very hard in most developed countries for the old working class, who have been left behind by globalisation, and that is where most of the support for right-wing extremism comes from. But there really aren’t enough of them to take over the state: Trump will not win in November, the National Front will not win next year’s French election, and the Brexiteers in Britain – well, that remains to be seen. The Middle East is a disaster area, of course, but it is a pretty isolated disaster area, apart from occasional small-scale terrorist outrages in Western countries. To live in fear of a world-wide Islamic caliphate is as delusional as to hope for it. Democracy is not in retreat in Africa or Latin America, and the pluses and the minuses more or less balance out in Asia (military rule in Thailand and more authoritarian elected governments in the Philippines and Indonesia, but more democracy in Burma and Sri Lanka). Nor should we see the triumph of a couple of ultra-nationalist parties in traditionally nationalist Eastern European countries as a sign of things to come in the rest of Europe. This is not to say that the European Union will survive in the long term without major changes. We are going through a historic shift of the centre of gravity of the global economy from the North Atlantic world to Asia, and many things will have to change as a result. It is possible that the United States and China might stumble into a military confrontation at some point: that risk is implicit in the kind of power shift that is underway in the early 21st century. But we are not on the brink of any great and awful calamity in the world. It is not 1936.

Editorial - Chris Malette It’s safe to say if you polled most Canadians just two weeks ago, few, if any could tell you who she is. This week she’s a rock star Olympian athlete who’s gracing the covers of newspapers and magazines coast to coast and is leading a Valkyrie charge of fierce female competitors who are lighting it up in Rio. Oleksiak, as most who care about sport or how Canada is faring in the Olympics, is of course Canada’s only four medal-winner at these games. She struck gold in the women’s 100 metre freestyle sprint, making her the youngest Canadian gold medalist ever. American swimmer Simone Manuel made history that night last week in the Rio pool, too, becoming the first African American to medal in the pool. Oleksiak’s four medals put her on even level with Victor Davis for the most won by a Canadian swimmer in the Summer Olympics, and give her the most by any Canadian at a single Summer Games. After tying for first in the 100-metre freestyle Thursday night, she became the first Canadian to win a gold medal in a swimming event since Mark Tewskbury in 1992. But, there cannot be enough said about the strength of the female contingent of our games athletes. As with most everything about the inexorable fight for women to gain an equal footing for men in a world still coming to grips with the simple notion of equality, women have struggled to garner the funding for training for many decades previous to these games. That has changed with a new strategy to identify medal contenders regardless of their gender and, seemingly to most of our collective surprise, women were pegged as representing our best chances to medal almost across the board. Women athletes, it turns out, were targeted for success by their individual sports organization and by federal Own the Podium funding. Not because of their gender, specifically, but because of intensely scrutinized medal potential as determined by their own records and the depth of field in their events. “We knew that in the first week of the Games, there was a significantly higher percentage of medal potential for the women,” Anne Merklinger, CEO of Own the Podium, told The Toronto Star on Saturday. “It was done pretty deliberately, working with the sports federations to target the best medal opportunities. In that sense, we’ve strategically targeted women’s events.’’ And as The Star’s Rosie DiManno noted in a

column on the phenomenon of the phenomenal impact women have made on our Games presence in Rio, the numbers are pretty impressive. “Team Canada has a 60-40 gender split in Rio — 186 females, most ever, surpassing the 163 from London 2012, including women vying in three team sports — basketball, rugby, soccer – compared to two (track and field, volleyball) for men. Thirty-seven members of the athletics team are women; 28 men. Twenty women qualified in swimming; 10 men. Five females in gymnastics; a sole male. Full complement of women in wrestling and track cycling, unlike their male counterparts…” The pride is palpable for the poobahs who oversee our Olympic hopefuls, too. “I’m so impressed with some of the clutch performances, in the synchronized diving when they came through on the fifth dive, in the team pursuit today,” DiManno quoted chef de mission Curt Harnett, himself a former cycling Olympic medalist. “And the way the swimmers in the pool have delivered time and time again.” To hear him tell it, Harnett is gender blind in looking at our athletes and how they’ve been performing. “I’ve never really thought of it on those terms, though it’s certainly been a unique thing here, with their dominance in results. “Ultimately, I’d like to think that Canada provides for young girls a field of play that later translates into valid international sports opportunities.” That hasn’t always been the case and still isn’t in many quarters. As a father of a pair of athletic young women, I know for a fact sports organizations like Rugby Canada have not, until very recently, presented a level playing field for funding for men’s and women’s national teams. Women, in that sport now wildly popular after our success in the rugby sevens game in Rio, had to go begging for sponsorships and donations to make national and international competitions and many still do. We’re not telling parents of kids who play hockey, ball or other sports anything new, either. But, the point here is that we’ve finally, if not admitting it openly, crossed a gender barrier in funding, training and support that has produced the results we’re seeing in Rio. However you look at it, it’s pretty damn exciting to see women hog the spotlight on a world stage and bring accolades to Canada for helping make it happen. Go Canada! Alez les femmes!

Brighton Independent - Thursday, August 18, 2016


Pedal-powered music tour rolling into Brighton By Independent Staff Brighton – Juno award-winner, Quique Escamilla is making his way to Brighton. The Juno 2015 world music album of the year winner and 2014 Canadian Folk Music Awards, world solo artist of the year, is set to play a free show at Memorial Park at the end of the month. Escamilla is one of a few Torontobased musicians, travelling more

than 300-kilometres by bicycle, who will be playing free concerts along the way from Gananoque to Cobourg. His journey is part of an “unconventional music tour,” which features bicycle-powered concerts in towns, along the St. Lawrence River and Lake Ontario. The concert is part of the Bikes, Beards and Bandshells Tour. “Bicycles and music are two things that I believe are and will

always be positive for our world,” says Escamilla. Escamilla is cycling without a support vehicle from the 1000 Islands, through Prince Edward County, to Cobourg. He’s slated to end his tour at the Shelter Valley Folk Festival on Labour Day weekend. “This tour is the perfect combination of these two elements, that anyone of any age can enjoy and be part of the fun,” he said.

Escamilla started singing at the age of four at family reunions, he says online in his biography. He was born and raised in Chiapas, Mexico and at the age of six in a crowded restaurant, with the in-house six-piece Mariachi band, he performed “El Ray” and discovered the magic of live music. He arrived on the Canadian music scene in the 2000s and now the singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist calls Toronto home.

Toronto-based musicians Benjamin Hermann and Andy Mac will also be joining Escamilla on the road this month. Hermann, who was part of the Tune Your Ride Tour in 2014, from Brockville to Toronto, says the tour truly is a unique experience and he’s excited to be hitting the road again. “Our 2014 tour helped me realize the direct creative relationship between motion and music,” he said. “Biking and musical creativity become one and the inspiration given by the whole experience shines onto audience members along the way.” The concerts such as the one slated for Brighton on Aug. 31, at 6:30 p.m., are also unique in that audience members are invited to hop on one of the stationary generators to help power the music – it’s 100 per cent pedal-powered. Everyone is welcome to attend the free concert, says tour director James Davis, who founded the Toronto Bicycle Music Festival in 2010. He’s leading his third bike-powered tour in four years, covering close to 1,000 kilometres. For those involved with the tour, it’s a great way to explore Ontario, the director says. “Doing a music tour by bike helps show people what is possible when you decide to do something with your own human power,” he added.

Employees give top marks to Campbellford Memorial Hospital By Sue Dickens Campbellford – A report by the National Research Corporation (NRCC) highlighting top performing employees at hospitals in Ontario noted, as part of its employee experience survey, that Campbellford Memorial Hospital (CMH) received very positive scores.

In a press release, it was stated that in the report, CMH was identified as a top performing hospital at or above the 90th percentile in the category called “organization,” which includes questions about leadership, values, communications, action on feedback, valuing work of staff, staff understanding goals of the organization, and staff

having trust in the organization. As well, the hospital’s employee satisfaction survey results also earned it a top performing status among small hospital peer group members in Ontario in organization, health and safety and the “can trust this organization” category. “These results validate the outstanding work and commitment of

Campbellford Memorial Hospital’s team. We have a unique culture, combining a level of warmth that you don’t find in most hospitals with a spirit of innovation that allows us to deliver excellent care,” said Brad Hilker, president and CEO. “We are focused on recruiting and retaining the best people with

Animal blood bank organizing clinics across the province, looking for dog donors By John Campbell Northumberland County – It was 20 years ago that the Canadian Animal Blood Bank (CABB) was launched in Manitoba to provide canine blood products to the province’s veterinarians. Within two years the not-for-profit company began serving veterinary clinics across the country and in 2001 it began adding satellite locations for the collection of blood in Alberta. Ontario has now been added to the network and overseeing its expansion into the province is Mary Robinson, who grew up in Brighton and now lives in Trenton. A registered veterinary technician, she’s the blood bank’s national laboratory coordinator. It’s a role she “was meant to do,” she said. “I absolutely love my job.” Her primary task is to run blood donor clinics and to expand the network of sites where donations can be made, because “we always need more blood,” Robinson said. CABB’s board of directors “expects me to do three clinics a month, my goal is to be doing two a week.” Her mandate includes “educating the public [because] a lot of people don’t know that this even exists,” she added. “We always need volunteers as well,” Robinson said. “They can be young kids.” Her 12-year-old nephew helps out frequently. About 450 grams of blood is collected at a time from donor dogs, which must be between one and eight years of age, weigh more than 23 kilograms (50 pounds), are up to date with vaccinations, have a good temperament, and be in good general health. “There’s no sedation,” Robinson said. Even though the blood is drawn from the animal’s jugular vein, “it doesn’t hurt ... The dogs don’t even notice it.” Golden retrievers are the best breed for giving blood because “they’re just so laid back.” The whole process, including paperwork, weigh-in, and sample testing for red blood cell count and protein levels, takes about 15 minutes. The benefits to pet owners include being eligible for one free blood product for every unit donated, should their dog ever be in need of a blood transfusion. A blood donor

Unknown pipe pushes project over budget By Sarah Hyatt

Samantha cares

about our residents’ well-being. rewarding knowing you’ve provided “ It’s the best quality care, so families can feel

confident bringing their loved ones here. At the end of each day I rest easy knowing that I’ve made a difference in someone’s life.

Brighton – A full-on road reconstruction and overhaul of Alice and Dundas streets began on Monday and will see local traffic rerouted for approximately four weeks. And the project is off to a pricey start, council heard Monday evening. A recently discovered large diameter storm sewer pipe in “very bad shape” needs to be replaced and is set to increase costs and result in additional longterm borrowing. The project is now over budget by $388,006.16, after council approved an additional $170,000 for the project and to remove and replace the large diameter storm sewer pipe. The pipe stretches on Alice Street, from Elizabeth Street, to Dundas from Alice, to Daniels Drive. “I can’t explain it,” said Bill Watson, CAO for the municipality, who presented Lucas Kelly’s report to council Monday. “It [the pipe] was never recorded – it’s not on any of our records.” Kelly is the municipality’s public works project supervisor. He was not on hand for Monday’s meeting. Cobourg Development Services is handling the reconstruction. During the tender stage, staff says they were not aware of the large storm sewer pipe, as it did not appear in any of the municipality’s engineering records. The large diameter storm sewer pipe was not discovered until during the survey and design stage. Upon discovery, Kelly, in his report outlined alternatives were looked at for dealing with the pipes – but inevitably, replacement was the recommendation. Council was faced with two options Monday eve-

ning, to either approve the extra cost, to remove and replace the storm sewer pipe for an estimated cost of $170,000, or to remove a section of the roads project, to remain in the original tender award price of $1,590,021.28. “Daniels Drive isn’t that old,” noted Councillor Steven Baker. He couldn’t understand how something “this big” could be missed. Ultimately, after hearing how to re-tender a portion of the roadway could potentially cost more down the line, given the size of the project and location, council chose to accept staff’s recommendation to approve additional costs now. Alice Street, between Singleton and Dundas streets will remain closed in coming weeks. “Due to the depth of the excavation, only emergency vehicles and residents of the street will have access,” said Kelly in a separate telephone interview earlier. The municipality is thankful for local residents’ patience during the construction period and also, as the project progresses staff will keep the public updated, staff noted.

By John Campbell Brighton – A woman found dead on an ATV trail in Douro-Dummer Township Aug. 14 is believed to be the Brighton senior who had been reported missing. “We can’t confirm the identity until the coroner [completes the examination],” Northumberland OPP media relations officer Constable Steve Bates said Tuesday morning, Aug. 16. But the search that police had launched Aug. 14 after Theresa Macrae, 88, Bayshore Drive, was reported missing was called off that night because “she was located,” Bates said. ATV riders discovered the body of a woman on a trail in near Twelfth Line Road shortly before 3 p.m. “Until dental records prove the point we can’t confirm [the woman’s identity] but we’re confident enough [that] we cancelled the alert,” Bates said. Peterborough County OPP Constable Jason Folz said Aug. 16 that a postmortem examination to determine the cause of death was scheduled for later that day at the Centre for Forensic Sciences in Toronto. “We won’t know until after the postmortem whether it’s suspicious or not suspicious,” Folz said. Northumberland OPP had issued a news release around 12:30 p.m. Aug. 14 saying they were “actively searching for a missing senior who suffers from occasional memory loss and health issues.” Police said Macrae was last seen at 5 p.m. Aug. 9 in the area of Presqu’ile Provincial Park, which is near her residence.

Link Cramahe will be news-info link to community By John Campbell Colborne – Work has begun on creating an online resource hub of community assets and events in Cramahe Township. A subcommittee of the township’s public library board, Link Cramahe, is overseeing the project, with

funding provided by the Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development. The ministry is paying the wages of a full-time coordinator, Sarah Johnston, for six months, and has provided roughly $2,500 for additional expenses, such as a laptop. Librarian Mary North admitted to

being “a little frustrated” that the group didn’t receive approval for the 12 months of funding it had applied for, in order to provide a year-long database of events in Cramahe, so she will be looking for funding from other sources to fulfill the subcommittee’s original vision. “We’d like to keep the project going because information has to be revised and updated on a regular basis, so that’s where future challenges will lie for the committee,” North said. “But right now we’re just very happy that it’s being kick-started.” The idea for a Link Cramahe co-ordinator

grew out of a needs assessment survey that was done two years ago. “We’re trying to harness community assets, hard and soft,” and give residents “24/7 access to information and resources,” North said. It’s also to keep people informed of events taking place, because the service once performed by a local newspaper, the Colborne Chronicle, has been “patchy” since its demise years ago, she said. Johnston, a Castleton resident, is working out of the Keeler Centre. She is being helped by a Loyalist College student, William Seaton, in the design of the website, www., which North said should have content ready by viewing by late September, early October. Johnston’s duties include reaching out to people and groups in the community for their help in developing and maintaining a website of interest to all generations in the

township, “and they have to link to her,” North said. “It’s a two-way street and that takes a little while to set up and [make] people aware [of what’s being done].” “We’re trying to make this intergenerational and include our young people in being informed,” she continued. By doing so, “maybe they’ll contribute more [to] the local community.” Johnston said she’s “hoping to be able to bring the community together and have information easier to get at ... all in one spot.” She was “quite surprised” the community hadn’t had position like hers before until now.

Local service clubs partner again with Westben for fundraising concert By Sue Dickens Campbellford – For the third consecutive year, the Rotary Club of Campbellford and the Warkworth Community Service Club (WCSC) have partnered for a fundraising concert. Westben is providing the facilities at no cost to raise funds to help

the communities of Trent Hills. The concert is also a launch pad for the fall season for the theatre association. The annual “At Your Service” benefit concert featuring the “Next Generation Leahy” will be “an incredibly exciting concert,” said Donna Bennett, Westben’s cofounder and marketing director.

“The last time they performed at Westben, they had the whole audience at The Barn clapping and tapping their feet. The children sing, dance and play the fiddle all at the same time.” Building on more than three generations of Leahy musicianship, Doug Leahy, together with his wife Jennifer and their children,

United Way introducing new funding process that’s open to more organizations By John Campbell Codrington – Northumberland United Way, which has “evolved” from funding just member agencies to forming “new partnerships” with other non-profit and charitable organizations, has begun accepting expressions of interests. “We’re transitioning from being a traditional fundraising organization to an organization that’s funding for impact [in the community],” said Heather Norris, the United Way’s director of community impact for Northumberland. “It’s part of our journey to remain relevant ... to address the needs that were identified through community conversations [held throughout the county which identified] the aspirations and the challenges [that] community members were facing.” With the feedback it received and the help of experts it consulted, United Way developed investment strategies in three focus areas that “align” with those needs: children (support for learning life skills, taking part in recreational and physical activities, and maintaining mental health wellness); people living in poverty (assistance in maintaining housing and meeting basic needs, and support for employment training and those at risk

of homelessness); and community (support for more access to information and resources, and better mental health initiatives). Details about the new granting process will be explained at a pair of information sessions, with the first to take place at the Codrington Community Centre Aug. 31; the second one will be held at 600 William St. in Cobourg Sept. 7. Both one-hour sessions begin at 2 p.m. Only expressions of interest for programs and services requiring $10,000 or more to implement will be considered, and those found to be worthy of further consideration will be invited to submit formal applications for funding. United Way is looking to invest in projects that have a “measurable impact” which it can “share with the community” and its donors, using “defined performance indicators,” Norris said. The organization usually raises more than $1 million a year and supports between 20 and 25 programs and services annually, she said. Last year United Way invested $1,178,422 and “impacted” more than 24,700 lives. The new two-stage granting process is “quite rigorous” because of the need to measure and to report on the outcomes of approved major projects.Organizations that

have received funding in the past for projects requiring less than $10,000 could look at building “further capacity” in their programs and services by more than one means that cumulatively exceeds the minimum threshold United Way has set for requests, Norris said.

Haven for those seeking peaceful end of life needs funding By Sarah Hyatt Brighton – With a little community support, two Brightonians are hopeful they can help make a difference for those facing the end of life. The Bridge Hospice, which serves all of Northumberland County and the region, was created to ensure people are able to live every moment until the end of one’s life, says Craig Kerr, who serves as secretary on the hospice board of directors. “What we do – it’s not about dying,” he said. “It’s about living, actually living through those last

days.” Craig’s wife, Ruth, is asking for the community’s support this month with a fundraiser, which will help the hospice to continue to sustain operations. Ruth is also a volunteer with the hospice. “We receive no government funding,” explained Craig. “We can get grants to help with capital projects, but to sustain operations it’s very hard.” The residential hospice is now operating debt-free, with a little bit of funds in the reserve, but remains

Rotary Club of Brighton Newsletter for July 2016

We certainly hope everyone who came out to the weekly “Music In The Park” enjoyed themselves in late July when our Club hosted the local and talented Ian Roy and of course, we passed out some cold frozen treats for the attendees.

Some of our club’s ongoing activities this past month, included the formation of a new internal word for attendance. This award, called “The Keith Stainton Perfect Attendance Award” will be given our annually, and is in honour of our recently retired Rotarian Keith who has been a great supporter and promoter of Rotary and is one of a very few worldwide Rotarians that can boast forty years of perfect attendance. There is no doubt that Keith has certainly followed this Rotary year’s motto “Rotary Serving Humanity”. Thank you Keith (and Joan) for your decades of service. Donations this past month include the VON Adult Day Centre programs and, three scholarships for the ENSS Graduation. Plans were finalized for the 2016-17 budget and so, if your organization needs some help this coming year, feel free to contact us… not everyone who applies gets help but we do our best within our guidelines. Perhaps one of the biggest needs in the community is our “Coat For Kids” programs we do each Fall at the local schools to ensure these young ones have proper winter clothing. We were delighted to have Rafael Navas, a Brazilian Rotary Exchange student from 2007-07 join us at a recent meeting. What a treat it was to hear of life after Rotary Exchange. This program clearly has an effect on the students we send and receive and we should be proud that our sponsorship and support helps to 22

heavily reliant on volunteer efforts, fundraising, and donations to fulfill its mandate. “We’re the only residential hospice south of Highway 7,” Craig noted. For Northumberland County residents – The Bridge Hospice is essentially it, in other words. Ruth says there’s often some misconception, since the hospice is actually located in Warkworth. “We help families across the county and beyond though,” she clarified. Craig says easily more than onethird of the hospice’s residents to date have been from the Brighton-Cramahe area. The three-bed residential hospice also takes in Quinte West residents too. “This was the vision of three nurses who saw a demand and a need in the area,” said Craig. All care and

services are provided to residents of the hospice and families free of charge. The idea was to create a space where families and loved ones could come, be cared for and enjoy time with one another without worrying about all the responsibilities associated with care – families can focus on what matters, and that’s the time spent with loved ones, explained Craig. A residential hospice is designed to meet the needs of the individual at the end of life, but also the family. To make this vision a reality hasn’t been easy. The Bridge Hospice opened in 2012. Volunteers have put in a lot of work over the years, say the Kerrs. From raising funds to build the hospice home over the course of seven or so years, to the actual building of the home, to the fundraising and the volunteer caregivers – the hours logged have been many. “It really is this incredible facility now,” said Craig. Ensuring local and Northumberland County residents have this choice when facing the end of life, is something both Ruth and Craig

are passionate about. Ruth, who spent 14 years with the Red Cross, and providing in-home palliative care to families, says this cause is something she’s deeply connected to. It’s challenging, but rewarding, she says. Over the last year, the hospice has continued to grow. “We’re now operating at full capacity,” said Craig. Last September, The Bridge Hospice formed a partnership with Saint Elizabeth Health Care. The hospice now has a team of professional support workers and nurses through the partnership, who are on staff 24/7 to support and care for residents and families. Craig says with the partnership, the hospice is able to actually house three families and residents now, whereas before, being completely reliant on volunteers, the hospice cared for basically only one resident and family at a time. Volunteers are still key in helping to support families and provide comfort for residents, Craig clarified. That need for volunteers will never go away – but the professional team helps to ensure a safer space for families. The pair admit while it’s more common nowadays for people who have a life-limiting illness to want to remain in their home in the last few weeks of their lives – sometimes it’s just too hard for families. “Community Care Northumberland does provide in-home hospice services and that is the ideal option often,” said Craig. “But sometimes, the level of care for families and the emotional stress, it can be too much.” Please see “Haven” on page 23

Haven for those seeking peaceful end of life needs funding Hospice facts: The Canadian Hospice Palliative Care Association reports: • Only 16 to 30 per cent of Canadians who die currently have access to or receive hospice palliative and end-of-life care services – depending on where they live in Canada. • Seniors make up the fastestgrowing age group. It’s estimated seniors could account for between 23-25 per cent of the total population by 2036, nearly double the 13.9 per cent in 2009. • More than three-in-10 Canadians or 32 per cent suffer from a chronic illness while four-in-10 or 39 per cent have someone suffering in their immediate family. Combined, six-in-10 Canadians either personally suffer from a chronic illness or have someone suffering in their immediate family. • In 2009, Canada had 4.7 million persons aged 65 years or over, twice the number recorded in 1981. • According to all the projection scenarios, the growth of this group will accelerate in coming years.

Continued from page 22 This is where The Bridge Hospice comes in offering another option, helping to alleviate some of that emotional stress and freeing up time for families to focus on relationships. Being a three-bedroom hospice, the smaller more rural community lifestyle is reflected in the hospice home, added Craig. “For us, as a three-bedroom hospice, we’re comfortable providing quality care at this level,” said Craig. The Kerrs are hopeful for the community’s support in coming days. Ruth is hosting the second annual giant fundraising yard sale at the

Brighton and District Curling Club on Saturday, Aug. 27. All proceeds will go to help the hospice and into the general fund to assist with operating costs. Last year, the sale raised about $1,500. Ruth is hopeful a bit more can be raised this year, as every dollar helps. “This is what we call a third-party event,” said Craig. It’s not one of the hospice’s main fundraising events, nor is it being put on by the hospice. The Kerrs do this simply because they’re eager to lend a hand, they explained. The yard sale is from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m., and Ruth is still accepting

donations. New this year, there will also be a Chinese auction. There will be a wide selection of articles including crafts, books, antiques, collectables, Christmas décor, some furniture and other miscellaneous items. For more information, contact Ruth at 613-475-3018 or e-mail “We always welcome people looking to host events such as these,” said Craig. The Kerrs predict the demand for services such as these will continue to increase in coming years. Craig’s hopeful to soon see a residential hospice open in the Quinte

West area. He recently attended Quinte West council to speak about The Bridge Hospice. “It’s not about competition with this at all,” he said. “We’d be happy to be able to refer people potentially in need. We were happy to hear council and staff would be exploring the option and feasibility of a hospice and various locations – this is about addressing a need.” Such services also help to reduce some strain on the health-care system with fewer people staying in hospitals at end of life, Craig noted. Cost comparisons for care in hospital, to hospice are significant, he said.

Bulldogs lose three; women inched out in OWL promotion match It was an uncharacteristic weekend for senior teams in the Belleville Bulldogs Rugby fold. All three senior men’s and women’s sides lost their Toronto Rugby Union matches. Toughest of the lot was the defeat of the Bulldogs women’s side, bowing 23-19 to the Markham Irish in a clash of the previously unbeaten TRU women’s McKenna League bracket leaders. Both sported perfect 10-0 records coming into the game, the winner of which advanced to the

senior women’s loop for Rugby Ontario, the O.W.L. – Ontario Women’s League. It’s the end of the season for the Bulldogs women, but play continues for junior sides into August, as well as the Men’s I and II teams. Last Saturday, both men’s teams went down to defeat to the unbeaten Barrie Colts. Bulldogs II (7-1) lost a close one 24-19 at MA Sills Park, and the Dogs’ firsts (3-5) who suffered several injuries in the first half and a torrential downpour in the second half, fell 33-7 to Barrie II. Bulldogs men’s I and II sides are both on the road Saturday to Balmy Beach in TRU Russell Division play.

Campbellford wins Bay of Quinte’s Division 2 in men’s soccer also plays for Campbellford. The team lost just once last year but tied a pair which prevented it from finishing first, losing out to 8 Wing for first place; 8 Wing also defeated Campbellford in the semi-final for the cup. Michel said he‘s “pretty proud how the team came together [this season]. It was a relatively new squad so to see the results we got and how quickly we were able to come together was awesome.”

By John Campbell

By clinching the league title, Campbellford will move up to Division 1 next season, after a two-year absence. It was relegated to Division 2 following a lastplace finish in 2014. “I‘m excited to move back up to Division 1 because I feel our team is capable of staying in Division 1,” Michel said. He added that anyone interested in playing men‘s soccer next year can email him at

Belleville – Campbellford is the runaway Division 2 champion of the Bay of Quinte Men’s Outdoor Soccer League. With one game left to play this week, the team will finish well ahead of its five other BQMSL rivals to capture the regular season title, and it now has set its sights on winning the cup as well. It currently has a 3-0 record in cup play and will be looking to advance to the final with a win over the Belleville Blazers in the semi-final Aug. 23 at MA Sills. The final will take place Aug. 25. Campbellford upped its record to 11-1-1 in league play by pummelling Elite FC 10-3 Aug. 9, led by Erick Shannon’s five goals. The striker leads the league with 21 goals. Blaine Thompson scored twice and has 11 goals for the season, putting him in third spot in Division 2 scoring. Also finding the net were Erick Nestoruk, Nicholas Thompson and Brady Cross. Shannon and centre midfielder Blaine Thompson have combined for 32 goals, slightly more than half of the 60 Campbellford has scored. Shannon is in his first year with the team. He was a member of the Brighton Storm which folded last season. “It was pretty nice to get a player like that,” said midfielder Sawyer Michel, the first-year manager/coach who‘s in his Campbellford has outscored its opposition by 40 goals in 13 games, with No. 19 Erik Shannon accounting for one-third sixth year as a member of the team. Help- of the team’s offence, but the club has had a much tougher time defeating Colborne, winning twice by just one goal ing him run the team is Ben Fields, who and another by two goals.

Art weekend lining up for Labour Day

The Rednersville Road Art Tour (fondly known as the R.R.A.T.) will host its ninth annual Art Tour this coming Labour Day Weekend.  This year, the R.R.A.T. will host fifteen sites with 26 artists and artisans. Returnee studios, as well as new sites and guests, will be opening their doors to the public, displaying the artistic talents of both well known and emerging, new artists. Represented work encompasses a large variety of visual art styles, media and prices and includes felt, fiber, glass, ceramic, wood, jewellery, miniatures, and more. All work for sale is original, hand crafted and unique. Many of these studios have been with the tour since its inception in 2008 when Danuta Cromwell, a local mixed media artist on Rednersville Road, called some artists she knew, also on the “Road” and said, “There seems to be so many of us here on this short 20 kilometer stretch, we should get together and have our own ‘Rednersville Road Art Tour.’” During that first Labour Day weekend tour, the thirteen studios participating saw over 350 visitors. This year the R.R.A.T. tour welcomes these exciting and unique artists: Iris Casey, a new host, specializes in unique wire sculpture, garden art, and mosaics. Andrea Pyman-Varangu, also a new host, utilizes pure pigment soft pastel sticks to paint landscapes and still lifes. Andrea’s  guests Colleen Green, utilizes vibrant colours and movement in bees wax and oil paint on wood, and Laurie McRae, an oil painter and fibre artist creates vibrant landscapes, florals and abstracts. Gayla Campney is a new guest and a beach glass artist who handcrafts work from Prince Edward County Beaches. Returnees include Florence Chik-lau and her ceramic sculptures; and Susan Moshynski, “By the Bay Studio”, watercolour, pastel and acrylic

his nature interpreted acrylics, oils and prints, and Alecia Bye, a previous year’s tour guest, and her “Wheel thrown” functional stoneware with “mocha diffusion” underglazing techniques. Also returning: Gwynn Bedford, acrylic and watercolor with her guest Brigitte Rittinger, textile and glass artist and Ilona Mayer, watercolour, oil and acrylics and Helen Steinberg with her watercolors and jewellery. Take one, two, or three days to see the R.R.A.T. studios and workplaces, start at the middle or either end of the

twenty kilometer stretch of the Rednersville Road (also known as Prince Edward County Road #3) and enjoy, as well,  some spectacular views and gardens along that road that follows the beautiful south shore of the Bay of Quinte.  Campbells’ Orchards will be open to offer refreshments. On Labour Day Weekend, Sept. 3, 4 and 5, studio doors will open 10 a.m. until 4 p.m., Saturday, Sunday and Monday. For more information on the R.R.A.T. tour please visit:   or view the tour’s Facebook page.


Make sure your butts, fires are dead out Dear Editor I am a seriously concerned citizen of Stirling-Rawdon township and for the past four weeks, since our fire ban went into affect, it seems many aren’t adhering to the ban and utterly ignoring it. I have seen dozens of people driving by and just tossing their still, very much lit cigarettes out onto the asphalt and often times, these cigarettes have ended up in dry bush. I think an editorial needs to be run to remind people that they should be putting these things out prior to tossing them out the win-

dow, and or buying an astray for their vehicle as they are now putting everyone’s homes and businesses at risk of being burnt to the ground and with water levels being a very serious issue right now, there’s no guarantee the fire departments can manage putting out a big fire. Currently there are several fires already burning, and to date, these fires are under control, but as we witnessed with the Fort McMurray fire, this can and does change in the blink of an eye. People should be reminded to put their cigarettes out prior to

throwing them out their vehicle’s window and making certain, if they are having a bonfire, that the fire is 100 per cent out. If you can still see red, then throw more water or sand on to the fire! I for one, cannot afford to move nor can I afford to replace the items in my home and I am certain, no one else can. So I strongly remind people to be more careful in these very dry times.


Wrong to question provincial commitment to schools: minister

Dear Editor, (Re: Sagonaska Demonstration School) Since becoming Minister of Education, I have had the opportunity to see firsthand the benefits of our investments in our education system on students across the province. We have inRobyn Marlow creased education funding Stirling by 59 per cent, improved graduation rates by 17 percentage points to 85.5 per cent and transformed our education system into one of the best in the world - but we know there is still more work to be done. I am committed to ensuring that students with special education needs have the supports they need. That is why I announced (last) week that we will not be closing the provincial and demonstration schools and we will continue to strengthen supports for some of our most vulnerable students. Earlier this year, we consulted with students, families, staff and education and community partners, looking at ways to provide a range of quality programs and services that effectively meet the needs of students who attend the English-

language demonstration schools, Robarts School for the Deaf and Centre JulesLéger. Throughout the consultations, we heard from parents and students about how vital these programs and services are for students. We gained valuable insight and feedback about how to best meet students’ needs so they can reach their full potential in school and in life. I would like to thank the parents and students for their passion and commitment. Starting in the 2016-17 school year, we will begin pilots for intensive reading intervention projects in school boards to increase the availability and responsiveness of supports for students in their local communities as well as research early and ongoing assessment to better understand learner profiles of students with learning disabilities. We will also be establishing a reference group to provide guidance and input on strengthening supports for students who are Deaf or hard of hearing. This is in addition to our pursuit Please see “Wrong” on page B3

There are consequences when populace loses faith in government

Dear Editor In 2013, when the Liberals had a minority government, Kathleen Wynne, our esteemed Premier, created The Financial Accountability Office. The FAO. This was in exchange for the NDP’s backing and support. It worked for Kate at the time. Stephen LeClair was appointed the first watchdog in 2015. He has little power of course; Liberals don’t want to play ball. Accountability doesn’t work for Kate now. By FAO calculations, Ontario’s debt is an almost $300 billion. The debt has grown 90% since 2008-9 alone. The Province has $2.40 in

debt for every dollar of revenue it brings in. Interest on the debt is almost $1 billion a month. Wow. Ontario spends more on interest payments than on post secondary education. Stephen LeClair reports Kate and Charles Sousa, Finance Minister, continue to hide information, using accounting tricks and one time sell offs to survive. Shouldn’t these people be in jail? Don’t we call people who steal, lie and cheat crooks? I guess we have legal crooks in today’s world. Let’s move on to Ontario’s aborted pension plan. $70 million and not a single penny of

contributions collected; but lots paid out. The top six executives of the defunct plan will split $2 million in severance for a job that never was. The CEO, Saad Rafi, will receive more than $825,000 for less than six months work. Do the math. Saad ran the Pan Am Games, which the auditor general reported came in $304 million over the original budget, and executives including Rafi split $5.3 million in completion bonuses. Nice reward for an over budget outcome. Finance Minister Charles Sousa and his associate minister in charge of pensions, Indira Naidoo-Harris, said they felt

Wrong to question provincial commitment Continued from page B2 of legislative changes to transfer the governance structure of Centre Jules-Léger to our 12 French-language school boards

the push for an Ontario Pension plan was well worth the $70 million. Go figure. Some analysts compare this cavalier mentality exhibited by politicians to what is happening globally. The rise in Donald Trump’s popularity; Brexit; Nice and Munich shootings; Turkey’s failed coup; Dallas and Baton Rouge violence between the blacks and the police. The populace is feeling disenfranchised, sick of

Willie Wonka at Stirling Theatre is sweet as candy By Jack Evans Stirling – If you think our current crop of young people is a listless bunch of slackers, the Stirling Festival Theatre’s current Young Company production of Roald Dahl’s musical, “Willy Wonka� will prove you wrong. With a cast of 25 aged 10 to 20, it’s like a famous writer said of a dog that walked on its hind legs: “It’s not that it could do it so well, but that it could do it at all.� Happy songs, colour-

ful costumes, funny gags and a group of young thespians who can dance up a storm and belt out their songs like Ethel Merman will keep you glued to your seat. Even more fun is the spectacular light show put on by director David Vanderlip, giving an impression of flying and crashing blindingly off a solid wall of bright tinfoil at another point. Thus, you have a great example of adult skills and leadership bolstering a precocious talent pool. The enthusiasm and

talent just jump right off the stage. Generous audiences have been crying for more. Supported by a twoperson pit band, music director Christopher Mallon and flutist Veronique Kwakkernaat, there is plenty of sound, thanks to batteries of speakers all over the theatre. Vanderlip has enlarged the stage area by about 50 square feet with two side-wingmulti-storey structures and makes the most use of them. As he plans to retire,

Willie Wonka, owner of the magical candy factory, seeks a replacement. He offers a contest of five gold certificates among his millions of chocolate bars, which entitles the finder and a parent to a tour of the plant and ultimately, perhaps, an opportunity to take it over. The prized certificates wind up scattered all over the world to different types of children. One is a glutton from Germany, one a media addict from the United States, one a spoiled rich brat from Brazil and one a gum-chewing addict. The final message here is that the children’s faults are not theirs, but the parents. Also, young Billie Bucket from an impoverished family right in the chocolate factory town finds one. Billie is the odds on favourite from the get goand deservedly so. It’s a wild ride of songs, action, special effects and unhappy results for four of the children and their parents. Standouts include Joshua

Both Whitman and young Flagler just recently finished a grueling run in the Belleville Theatre Guild’s “Music Man� show. Yes, it is a kids’ show, but all the adults loved it. Yes, the choreography isn’t up to Rockettes class, but it remains colourful and effective. One more note: in the Dutch and German languages, the double “oo� sound in Gloop, is always o as in boat or goat, not oo as in too.. With so many Dutch descendants if not speakers in our area,

New road signs help to protect municipal drinking water sources Keep your eyes open for the new Drinking Water Protection Zone road signs now up in the Quinte Region. The new signs are appearing across Ontario to raise awareness about protecting drinking water sources and public health. The signs identify zones along frequently travelled roads where pollution spills could have a significant impact on our municipal drinking water sources. They are part of Ontario’s Source Water Protection Program under the Clean Water Act, which empowers communities to better protect their local water sources. About 800 of the new road signs will be installed across the province with 33 of those in the Quinte Region; 24 on municipal roads and nine on provincial highways. Look for the signs in these local municipalities: Belleville, Prince Edward County, Marmora and Lake, Centre Hastings, Madoc Township, Tweed, Deseronto

and Greater Napanee. “The signs mark sections of road where accidental spills could travel quickly to a public drinking water source and contaminate it,” says Keith Taylor, Source Water Protection Project Manager at Quinte Conservation. “In the event of a spill, emergency responders can notify Ontario’s Spills Action Centre so quick action will protect the public drinking water source and public health.” Quinte Conservation assisted municipalities to identify precise locations for the new signs and facilitated a bulk order this spring. Municipalities installed signs on municipal roads using provincial funding. The province is installing the signs on provincial roads and highways. The first Drinking Water Protection Zone road sign in the province was installed on Lennox and Addington Road 2 in the Town of Greater Napanee last November. The road signs are called for

in the Quinte Region Source Protection Plan. Local municipalities are working with Quinte Conservation to implement policies in the Plan since it came into effect in January, 2015. The Plan, developed under Ontario’s Clean Water Act, directs local efforts to protect and keep the sources of municipal water clean and plentiful. One of the 63 policies in the Plan calls for the new road signs. The initiative to protect sources of municipal drinking water is directed and funded by the Ontario Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change under the Clean Water Act. Quinte Conservation provided local technical, communications and administrative support for the planning process and supports local municipalities as policies are implemented. More information about drinking water source protection is available at Quin- Signs like this are being posted throughout the Quinte region in places where pollution could impact drinking water sources.

Can dams cure or cause drought? The Weather Network reports, “22 of 31 watersheds throughout southern Ontario are reporting some level of drought conditions (as of July 29). Ten watersheds have advanced to Level 2 (moderate drought), including most watersheds in eastern Ontario, plus the Hamilton and Grand River watersheds. At this level, local residents are asked to voluntarily lower their water usage by 20 per cent. As of August 4, three watersheds in southeastern Ontario (including the Moira River watershed area overseen by Quinte Conservation) have advanced to Level 3 (severe drought) and residents are asked to lower water usage by 50 per cent. In such times of drought, people often begin to think about dams on our rivers and streams to retain and manage water. But - Dams Have Two Sides. Canadians have proudly built dams since there were Canadians. Dams and the power they harness are commonly described as “green” and “renewable,” but there are several disadvantages to dams. They

are not totally “green” and they can irreversibly change a river. The water may be renewable but these river habitats are not. This is a story we don’t often hear because dams are very advantageous to one species: the humans. Dams to Regulate Water Levels During settlement, dams were the major source of power; they ran sawmills for lumber and grist mills for flour. No longer major power sources, many dams now just regulate water levels for recreational power boaters in our lakes and canals and increase the real estate value of cottages and retirement homes. The role of those dams is no longer vital and it may be beneficial to consider these dams as optional. Using dams to regulate water levels should be contrasted with the disadvantages. Sound decisions are not possible otherwise. There is a large base of knowledge that explores the ecological effects of making variable water levels more constant. Most river and lake watersheds

on the Canadian Shield have naturally variable water levels. Often variation is extreme, from boulder-rolling spring runoff all the way to just wet rocks in late summer. Regulatory dams that enforce even slight changes in water level can deliver extreme impacts to the ecological processes in rivers and lakes. Those impacts include: Preventing seasonal oxidation of organic matter exposed to air during low water and allowing organic matter to fill lake beds faster. Decreasing oxygen concentration in the water by heating the water and by reducing the mechanical mixing by whitewater flows. Removal of breeding sites for fast water species and removing the flow that delivers food to species that feed by filtering. Removal of upwelling sites where current flows cause vertical currents to move nutrients up into the sunlight to increase phytoplankton production for the food chain. These are a few examples of the major ecosystem impacts of

forcing water levels to become constant. Beaver Dams Beavers were the 0riginal Canadian dam builders, and beaver dams are often cited as having only beneficial effects on ecosystems – that point can be debated, too. Beaver dams do cause an increase in diversity of plant species which causes an increase in bird species diversity. Essentially these effects result from the beavers inserting small lakes into a previously flowing stream. Lake plants and lake birds follow. With time the beaver pond fills with rich organic matter and silt trapped from the stream. A beaver meadow results and has species that differ markedly from the surrounding ecological community. Beaver dams have many of the basic impacts of human dams but the ecosystems are better able to adapt to those impacts because the effects are temporary. As the beaver population changes, so do the effects of beaver dams on ecological processes at the landscape scale. Like older human dams, beaver dams deteriorate and can be washed out by high water. For both beaver and human dams, poorly planned placement of buildings and bridges allows economic damage. Beaver ponds also trap very large amounts of silty sediment that is nutrient-rich, especially rich in nitrogen. If a backhoe removes all the foundation of a beaver dam right down to bedrock, all the nutrient-rich sediment stored in the bed of the pond can be washed downstream and change the bay of a lake from moderately nutrientrich to algae-filled overnight. Dams for Energy Dams to generate electricity are newer and usually larger but are often built in the same locations as older dams simply

because that is where engineers can harness falling water. The electricity that these dams generate is often considered vital but a significant fraction of it is for export – for profit. These dams also are valued as mechanisms for the storage of electricity produced above the ongoing demand. That excess power can be used to pump water back up above the dam to be used to generate more electricity at times of higher demand – usually called pumped storage. When a dam floods areas of terrestrial or shallow wetland habitats, one of the first important changes is an increase in methylated mercury. The mercury comes from the bedrock. Without methylation, mercury does not enter living systems. Methyl mercury is produced when methane (CH4) is produced by the decay of organic matter without access to oxygen. High levels of methyl mercury have been found associated with many hydroelectric dams. However, the effects of high levels of methyl mercury on natural systems are not well known, but we have seen the effects of methyl mercury in humans. It affects the neurological system and has been called Minamata disease. First Nations people in the Wabigoon-English watershed of northwestern Ontario have felt the effect of this toxin, although in that case the mercury came from a pulp mill. The water held back behind a dam is called an impoundment, and this water changes the global water cycle. Water has a very high capacity to store heat, so when the surface area of the water behind a dam is increased, it is heated more by the sun. This causes a significant increase in the evaporation of water vapour and carries more heat into the atmosphere. More

water vapour and more heat creates feast or famine rainfall – just what we are seeing. So, rather than being a cure for drought, dams can be part of the cause. As global warming increases, this effect will increase. The warmed surface water will allow greater algae growth and favour invasion by other algal species, including toxic bluegreens. If the dam overflow is at the surface, then warm water constantly flows downstream, changing the environment. Coldwater habitats are eliminated. Caddis fly species are among the first to go, followed by Speckled Trout, Atlantic Salmon and (non-native) Brown Trout. Smallmouth Bass take over. Fun to catch but less diversity. Dams as Barriers Dams are barriers in streams and rivers. Speckled Trout do not jump over barriers – even low ones. Unlike Pacific Salmon, Atlantic Salmon also are very poor jumpers. Such species are prevented from getting to upstream spawning grounds. Their populations along a stream are broken into smaller subpopulations by barriers. These smaller populations separated by barriers are at higher risk of local extinction due to their small numbers. Ecologically, the impoundments made by dams are essentially ponds inserted into a flowing stream habitat. This is a fundamental change in the landscape and in the ecological processes there. For humanbuilt dams, this change is imposed over large areas and for long periods of time, and the ecological changes are rarely considered. Because dams can cause as many problems as they cure, those that are not replacing Please see “Dams” on page B11

Scouts see the light with help from friends Thomasburg – Scouts will no longer have to deal with dodgy propane lighting and sub-par wiring at a popular cam near here. Scouts Canada from the Algonquinte Area were joined recently by members of the Quinte Chapter of the Ontario Electrical League for some much-needed upgrades to the electrical wiring and lighting at Quinte’s local Scouts camp. According to local Scouts Canada spokesman Nick Fry, the work included installation

of upgraded wiring and LED lights and electrical receptacles in the camp longhouse and sleeping cabins. The work, said Fry, took place at Camp Sagonaska – Vanderwater Park, Thomasburg. The camp is run by the Algonquinte Area and is available to all Scouts and Guides as well as Cadets and other community groups and is open and accessible all year round. Fry said the generous donation of time and materials by the OEL electricians and local

branches of Guillevin International and Sesco Incorporated helped “improve the lighting around the facilities and in the buildings and to provide a safer environment for all camp users and to reduce the use of the propane gas lighting fixtures…” Local electricians taking part included those from Mike Hunter Electric, Anything Electric, Parallel Electric, Electricians from across Quinte chipped in to help wire up and install lights at Scouts’ camp facilities at Camp Sagonaska, at Electrix, Stewart Electric, Vanderwater Park, in Thurlow recently.

Can dams cure or cause drought? Continued from page B16 more damaging ways of generating power should be removed as part of environmental rehabilitation. Dams Optional Dams can irreversibly change a river. The water used in power applications may be renew-

able but these river habitats are not. Dams may be implicated as a cause of drought due to their capacity to change the global water cycle. Effects on aquatic plant life and organisms, as well as on recreational fish species, are dramatic. The role of dams is no longer vital,

and it may be best to consider these dams as optional. Who is most important in the scheme of things, all of our species or just the humans? Author: Gray Merriam, PhD, DSc Prof Emeritus,  Landscape Ecologist

CBC hit ‘Still Standing’ on the way to Norwood By Bill Freeman Norwood – First there was Rick Mercer, now it’s Jonny Harris. Norwood is becoming quite the destination for CBC celebrities and will play host to Harris and the hit show “Still Standing� in early September. Two years ago, the award winning Mercer spent a memorable day at the Norwood Fair filming a segment for his popular Rick Mercer Report.

Now it’s Jonny Harris’s turn. Another award winning comic from Newfoundland, Harris will spend time filming in the Friendly Town capping his stay with a stand-up performance that will be something of a “toast� and celebration of the humour and human warmth he’ll discover in Norwood. Harris is a dynamic comic, sketch performer and writer who’s also made his mark as Inspector George Crabtree in the much-watched Murdoch


Mysteries series. Still Standing is a cross-country romp into the small, diverse and colourful communities that dot the land between the big cities that so often hog the limelight. “By immersing himself in the adventure of their everyday lives, Jonny comes to understand their passion for these places,� a promo for the show says. Story producer David Kerr of Frantic Films, which produces Still Standing, was in Norwood last week scoping out the town is the largest vehicle lease marketplace in Canada. We’ll unlock you from your vehicle lease commitment... save time, early termination fees and penalties. Call now for a free consultation 1-888-357-2678 or visit us at

Jonny Harris and the hit CBC show “Still Standing� will be in Norwood during the first week in September.

New pastor for three Tweed area churches By Brett Mann

Reverend Long was born in Belleville and ordained in Pembroke in 2009. He previously worked in sales and marketing. “We had our own business, a Habitat for Humanity-type store where we sold recycled materials. It was one of the first such stores.” With his wife Jane and son Jeremy he has recently down-sized to a smaller home in Trenton. A daughter, Nicole, lives in Toronto. Describing the ministerial re-

sponsibilities of United Church ministers, Reverend Long said, “I’m the leader but they’re all ministers. I give them the tool kit. I’m really excited about that.”

Tweed - Reverend Norman Long began a worship service at White LakeBethesda United Church recently by recounting his life growing up on a century farm in Tyendinaga Township. He remembered riding in the back of his father’s truck with friends and livestock as his father drove calves to the 4-H competition. Reverend Long, the new minister for the “three-point charge” of White Lake-Bethesda, St. Andrew’s in Queensborough and St. John’s in Tweed seems like a good fit for serving rural congregations, and comes with a reputation for providing good pastoral care. Reverend Long is replacing the recently retired Reverend Caroline Giesbrecht, spending his time getting acquainted with members of the three congregations and preparing to volunteer at a plowing match food booth this summer to be operated by all three churches. He presents as a relaxed, approachable pastor who likes to inject some humour into his weekly services. “It’s a co-operative relationship,” says Reverend Long. “The church has limited resources at this time so shared resources is really great. It’s Reverend Norman Long has begun a one-year appointment as minister of a good pastoral ministry.

lots of help to the community, lots of work being done. They seem to be really caring of each other too, which is really nice. They’ve been very caring with me, right from the start.” Reverend Long comes from a church in Frankford and he felt the need to move to a full-time commitment. “I needed fulltime work and I felt called to Tweed.” His current ministerial appointment is for one year, but “I’d be open to staying longer.”

4-H – It’s not just for farm kids says ambassador By Sue Dickens Campbellford – More than six months into her tenure as one of six 4-H Ontario ambassadors, Elaine Jeffs has been promoting the organization with positive messages and tackling what she said is “the stigma that it is just for farm kids.” The first ambassador at the provincial level to represent the Northumberland 4-H Association, Jeffs knows she has had more than her hands full with recruiting new members and sharing the 4-H story. She also has to present her message in a modern age where modern technology and the voices of animal activists are also affecting her role.

Chosen from a group of 17 people who submitted applications, nine of whom were interviewed and six chosen, Jeffs has been taking her role in stride. “My main job is to promote 4-H to people who don’t know what it is and make sure I have a positive image because there are people like animal rights activists who think that 4-H is all bad and we are mean to animals because we tie them up and people just don’t understand the whole story so it’s good to get that out,” she said. “I think with social media, people can take things and distort it so I think it’s good to have positive voices in agriculture.” Growing up with three siblings, Elaine,

the daughter of Doug and Jennifer Jeffs, who operate a dairy farm near Campbellford, said participating in the 4-H calf club became one of her favourite experiences. But she is quick to point out that, “4-H isn’t just for farm kids anymore. I’ve taken the yoga club and gardening club; 4-H is definitely expanding and evolving.” She noted she couldn’t do it without the help of sponsors UPI Energy and GROWMARK Inc. “This is definitely a very exciting time for me,” she said. Jeffs will be attending the University of Guelph in the fall and is enrolled in the Bachelor of Science and Agriculture program.

Stirling Council reverses decision to reduce school crossing guards By Terry McNamee Stirling – When students return to Stirling Public School this fall, there will still be three crossing guards to see that they safely cross busy streets. Faced by a room filled with parents, crossing guards, bus drivers and citizens at its Monday, Aug. 15 meeting, council changed a decision it made this summer to reduce the number of guards to one. Instead, all three guards will remain on duty. Earlier this summer, council sent letters to the three crossing guards to notify them that the requirement for school crossing guards has been eliminated with the exception of one position. The crossing guards who lost their jobs were then invited to reapply for the remaining position. Now they won’t have to do that. One of those guards, Tina DeVries, appeared as a delegation at Monday’s meeting, backed up by approximately 30 people who wanted the guards to remain in place. Citing safety issues, she asked that council rescind its decision. She said that, since the new school replaced the three previous schools about three years ago, there are no longer staggered times for buses and cars dropping off and picking up students. This,

she said, has resulted in 13 buses and about 200 cars entering and exiting the area while students are going to and from school. “This causes severe congestion of area roads and sidewalks, with the increased risk of pedestrian mishaps,” she said. A letter also was submitted from County Bus Service Limited expressing concern with safety should the number of crossing guards be reduced. Mayor Rodney Cooney said the money for the crossing guards was taken out of the budget in February. To put it back, he said, would require adding a 1.5 per cent increase onto the tax assessment in January 2017. “We don‘t have it in the budget for two crossing guards for the last six months,” he said. “In order to cover those two crossing guards for six months, we need a half a percent of assessment,” the Mayor said. “You all understand, it will be a one and a half per cent increase next year.” He said the original decision actually became official on July 18. Cooney asked for and quickly got a motion on the table to rescind that decision. Council passed it immediately, restoring all three crossing guard positions. “So, Tina, that is off the books now,” he said.

At the Aug. 15 meeting of Stirling Council, school crossing guard Tina DeVries explained where and why crossing guards are necessary to protect the 700 children who attend Stirling Public School. Photo by Terry McNamee

“So we can all go back to work?” Afterwards, DeVries said she was “I feel great!” she added. “I’m sure asked DeVries, amid applause from delighted by the turnout of people and the kids will be much happier, and the audience, and the mayor said yes. by council‘s decision. safer, too.”

Southern Wyoming’s wide open spaces & wild horses Yes, you may experience some “tall tales” out here in these wide open spaces, but you’ll also encounter a great variety of spectacular scenery – and those magnificent, free-spirited wild horses. For More Information:

By John M. Smith On a recent visit to Wyoming’s Sweetwater County, I partook in a fascinating wild horse and eco safari tour with Rich Noble and his wife (www., and this tour was the highlight of my visit. After all, rambling about on those remote, rugged, gravel backroads through the wide open spaces was truly an adventure in itself – and actually encountering several of the magnificent horses and other wildlife, along with viewing fascinating rock formations, sand dunes, and petroglyphs, made for a great day. It’s best to tour this rugged landscape in a high-clearance vehicle with 4-wheel drive, and Rich uses a 1975 Pinzgauer, said to be an “SUV on steroids”.  He brags that “This vehicle will take me almost anywhere”.  He says that “It has even been used to get Hummers out of trouble.”  Well, it was certainly important for us visitors to feel safe out here in this wilderness, for there were no services along this route, and cell phone reception can be very limited. We had just nicely started on our Pilot Butte Wild Horse Scenic Tour Route when we encountered our first wild horses, and this was soon followed by several other sightings.  What a thrill!  It was especially nice to see that these magnificent animals appeared to be quite healthy, although some were scarred somewhat from previous fighting incidences, for the males will fight for ‘the right to rule’.  These horses tend to travel in groups, with a stallion having several mares and colts.  We soon noticed another male keeping his distance from the ruler of a particular group, but still keeping in contact with the group – probably hoping that he could eventually be accepted into the group instead of wandering about on his own.  After all, there’s strength in numbers. These wild horses are actually freeroaming herds of feral horses, descendants of the horses that were reintroduced to this area by cattle ranchers back in the 1800s, and they wander about the unfenced land in search of food and springs of fresh water.  These unbranded and unclaimed horses are now protected and managed by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) in accordance with the Wild FreeRoaming Horse and Burro Act of WHAT ARE YOU 1971.  This poses CROWDFUNDING FOR? a bit of a controversial situation for the BLM, for Start your campaign now! if the number of wild horses is an online platform to raise money through crowdfunding: an opportunity for a collection of individuals to make donations in support of a cause.

The Good Earth

Dan Clost This was the situation on Friday, 12 Aug: an average temperature of 30.9 C for the first 12 days of the month, accumulated rainfall totaled 1mm, our humidex work ratings, according to the Canadian Centre of Occupational Health and Safety (for acclimatized workers – not the

Rain = Recovery for our gardens

chart for a/c office types), had been in the 30 min on and 30 min off for several weeks; last week we had 3 days where it ticked the five on and 55 off, with one day (Friday) topping the chart for several hours. Gentle Reader, I don’t care how “acclimatized” the health boffins might rate us, too hot is still too hot. Mind you I have room for lots of empathy with roofers, road builders and – the folks whom I think have the toughest weather related job – the garbage collectors.  Let’s give a thought and a prayer for our agricultural neighbours, they’re in serious trouble. I surveyed the grounds of the Clost estate that evening and my gardening soul plummeted to soles of my feet. I know I love plants, but I hadn’t fully realized how much they had become part of defining who I am.  However, I am an optimist and later that evening had reconciled myself to starting fresh again... next year. Moving on to Saturday at “oh-dark thirty” (actually 0410 hrs): halle-

lujah! A light rain began to fall. I know that because I was languishing in our sunroom- upstairs was far too hot for comfortable sleeping- when the scarcely remembered sound of raindrops on a tin roof roused me from my stupor. Sox and I went outside and got wet. In all, 34mm of rain fell over the course of the day, some in heavy downbursts that mostly washed away into the drains but a significant amount fell “slowly” enough to be soaked up by the parched soil. In my mind, I knew that the drought had been broken, but I was still reconciled to planting a new landscape. Moving on to Sunday at 0930 hrs: what a transformation! We have a garden again. I took about an hour to walk around and take notes because I do believe this summer is a harbinger of summers to come. I need to begin changing up both the structure of the gardens and the plants within them and these notes will strike a chord of reality when I next push my shop-

ping cart through the nursery. Annuals: zinnias, Diamond Frost euphorbia, and Dragon Wing begonia put themselves at the top of the chart for next year. Nasturtium and portulaca are also on that list and, surprise-surprise for you long-time GR’s, wave petunias have forced their way in. Perennials:  sedum is now at the top of the list. Sedum spectabile “Stardust” looks terrific in open sun areas as a counterpoint to Geranium cantabrigiense “Biokovo” which will take heat but not full afternoon sun.  We have the old standbys of Autumn Joy, Brilliance and Vera Jameson doing yeoman service in several beds but we’ll definitely be looking at other varieties similar to Stardust. I confess to having planted several of the ground cover varieties, i.e. Sedum spurium “John Creech” and Sedum ruprestre “Angelique”, but I’m still wary of them escaping into the lawn. Other good performers include, catmint (Nepeta racemosa “Walkers

Low’), Russian sage ( Perovskia atriplicifolia “Little Spire”) and anise-hyssop, (Agastache “Blue Fortune.”) Disappointments include both yarrow (Achillea) and coneflowers (Echinacea- believe it or not.) Shrubs: the elderberries Sambucus canadensis “Aurea” and Sambucus nigra “Black Lace” are thriving but our Sambucus racemosa var pubens, aka Scarlet Elderberry is hurting. It will be one of those removed from the planting palette.  Calycanthus floridus, Carolina Allspice, is thoroughly enjoying the heat, as is the Itea virginica “Little Henry”, sweetspire but it is tucked underneath taller densely foliated plants.  Viburnums have responded differently, V. lentago (Nannyberry) and V. lantana (Mohican Wayfaring Tree) are happy; V. dentatum (we have a Blue Muffin standard form) has died. The veggie garden held similar surprises, but that’s next week’s column.
