News – Brighton – It was a rough ride for Mayor Mark Walas and Councillor John Martinello at the regular municipal council meeting on Monday night. First up was Brighton resident David Green, who used his time during the ‘Citizen Comments’ portion of the meeting to blast Martinello for an email circulated after the first-draft budget meeting on December 4. “This email contained incorrect statements, half truths, innuendos and totally misleading statements,” said Green. “Municipal staff is simply the consolidator of information. Over the year, direction from council, requests for grants in aid: staff tallies them up, tells you of all the requests, including the external agencies, and the needs and wants of this municipality, and I, for one, don’t want staff to vet that list. That’s what my elected representatives do. “This email also forgot to mention the decrease in funding from the provincial government and the demanded increase from the OPP (Ontario Provincial Police). We also know that staff can and has offered very creative solutions to large capital purchases. But that wasn’t mentioned.” Then Green turned his attention to the mayor’s comments aired by a local radio station on December 9. “Taking to the airwaves to criticize, chastise, undermine and belittle staff for wasting his and Please see “Mayor” on page 5 R0012463485

News –  Brighton – Operation Red Nose Quinte, the Belleville-based program that keeps people who have been drinking off the road, is available to residents in Brighton. The one stipulation is, “all rides must start or end in Belleville or Trenton,” says chairman Rick Watt. “If we do 1,500 runs, we might do 30 to Brighton (over the course of 14 nights).” How it works is a team of volunteers take people home or to another destination of their choice when they’ve had too much to drink and wisely decided not to get behind the wheel. Three volunteers make up the team – one to take the caller home in his or her own vehicle, another to navigate, and a third to follow in an escort vehicle. The service is free but donations are accepted, with 75 per cent of all money received handed over to the YMCA Strong Kids program that gives children opportunities to live happier, healthier lives. The other 25 per cent goes to Quinte Sunrise Rotary in support of Camp Trillium. Operation Red Nose Quinte currently has about 240 volunteers it can call upon but that number will likely rise to 310 by the time New Year’s Eve rolls around. Watt, a school custodian, was a driver for four years before taking the reins in 2004. “In nine years we’ve given

over $251,000 away (to the two charities),” he said. “I just like doing it ... It saves lives.” Volunteers are trained and equipped with radios donated by a telephone answering service, which also provided two base stations. They’re told: “If you pull up to a situation you don’t like, drive away.” But Watt said people who use the service “high five you, they hug you ... they’re good.” The service isn’t just for people who have had a few drinks and decided they better not drive home; fatigue is another reason people make the call, Watt said. The teams of volunteers are typically dispatched to bars but “we get a lot of house parties,” he said. Volunteers use their own cars and “we try to do the best we can” to cover their fuel costs, Watt said. “We usually give $7,000 out in gas a year.” One man has worked every night for at least eight years and “never taken a nickel for gas,” he said, even though “some nights he’s gone 300-some kilometres. He said ‘I don’t need the money, I want it to go to the kids.’” The weekend service started up the last weekend in November this year and will continue for another six nights: December 19, 20, 21, 27, 28, and New Year’s Eve. It runs from 9 p.m. to 3 a.m. The number to call is 613-962-4334.

helping the environment and improving the municipal image. Current provincial legislation partially regulates smoking in outdoor areas. The Smoke Free Ontario Act 2006 prohibits smoking outdoors on properties that contain day nurseries, elementary schools and high schools with proposed additional amendments underway. “I don’t think all people who smoke are evil or bad people, however, when it comes to smoking in areas where children are participating in sports, it’s a nobrainer,” said Councillor Tom Rittwage. “I think it will be very much a case of peer pressure,” added Councillor John Martinello. “The enforcement will be difficult but there will be a lot of people who, knowing the bylaw is in place, will not tolerate others smoking near the kids. It will be enforced.” Council received the report and directed staff to prepare a bylaw to prohibit the use of tobacco at all municipal parks effective May 1, 2014.


Trent Conservation reports on regulations News - Quinte West – Several reports were on the list at the December 12 Lower Trent Conservation board meeting, including updates on environmental regulations. Cristal Heintzman, environmental planner and regulations officer, made the first report to the board. “This is just a preliminary update,” she said. Included were changes in boathouses, adding that some may use these as living space and should

That, to me, is completely inaccurate.” “I find that I am directly responsible for seeing higher costs in Brighton, is not necessarily accurate,” he added. “Two budgets have been passed that I have not supported. “The establishment of a workers union for the first time is being shown here as my responsibility, yet I brought forward, with Councillor Martinello, a motion to investigate the cost and feasibility of OCWA (Ontario Clean Water Agency) and it was the employees of the community that brought forward the union and not myself.” The controversial motion would have seen OCWA services "Seasons Greetings to all Our Customers, Friends & Families" operate, maintain and manage the Brighton water and sewage treatment plants. ✔ Christmas Decorations ✔ Frozen Foods “Those are the ones I will comment on at this time,” Walas ✔ Wrapping Paper ✔ Dry Groceries concluded. ✔ Christmas Decorations ✔ Frozen Foods ✔ Popular Toys ✔ Dairy & Deli Products ✔ Wrapping Paper ✔ Dry Groceries ✔ Family ✔ Housewares ✔ Popular PopularFootwear Toys ✔ Dairy Dairy & Deli Deli Products Products ✔ Toys ✔ & ✔ Clothing • PJ’S • Slippers ✔ Drinks ✔ Family Footwear ✔ Soft Housewares ✔ Family Footwear ✔ Housewares ✔ ✔ ✔ Candy Clothing • PJ’S • Slippers ✔ Tobacco Soft Drinks ✔ Clothing • PJ’S • Slippers ✔ Soft Drinks ✔ Snacks ✔ Cleaning Candy Tobacco Supplies ✔ ✔ Snacks Gift Cards ✔ Candy Assorted Cleaning Supplies ✔ Tobacco Appliances ✔ ✔ Supplies ✔ Snacks Assorted Gift Cards ✔ Cleaning Appliances

be out of the floodplain. Setbacks for people building on “the toe of a slope” was also discussed, with the changes to include all renovations and minor additions. For building near wetlands, some may be allowed if it allows safe access and is flood-proofed. Heintzman said there will be a new online map viewer for the public to view areas which are regulated or of environmental concern. This will streamline inquiries and help the public get answers. Janet Noyes, manager Water-

shed Science and Services, gave a report on changes to the Fisheries Act and the role of the Conservation Authority. “Some major changes went into effect on November 25, 2013 with only four days notice,” she said. The Fisheries Act has clarifications in managing threats to fish, applying to commercial, recreational and aboriginal fisheries. A new prohibition combines killing fish and destruction of habitat.

council’s time,” said Green. “Did any thought go into the effect those 36 seconds might have on the staff, the people that actually fulfill the will of council and do the job?” Later in the meeting, a letter, written by Brighton resident, Ms. F. Bonter, came up for discussion. According to Chief Administrative Officer Gayle Frost, it started with a telephone call to ask about getting a letter included in a council meeting agenda package and was hand delivered to the municipal office. The entire letter can be seen on the municipal website <www.brighton.ca> in the agenda package for December 16 on the meetings calendar. “The second paragraph addresses that absolutely outrageous, unprofessional, inappropriate attack on staff by Mayor Walas,” said Councillor Craig Kerr to open the discussion. “That attack is the latest salvo in the continuing three-year war that he and Councillor Martinello have waged on staff with disastrous results and at great cost to this municipality. “The impact of the mayor’s unwarranted attack has been devastating to the entire management team. Most affected is our director of finance, who is now off on medical leave. As a result, the entire budget process has now been thrown into turmoil and may well not be concluded until late next spring. And, as a consequence, we will lose the opportunity for early tendering on critical and major infrastructure contracts that, last year, saved us hundreds of thousands of dollars.” “For anyone around this table to abdicate their responsibility to a staff person is a blatant disregard to democracy,” added Councillor Tom Rittwage. “We were elected to make decisions. We were not elected to fear monger among the electorate.” In his defence, Walas said he “did not solicit media attention to provide the comments that I did.” Radio station personnel called him for a comment on the budget. “I’ll be honest, are my comments strong? Absolutely,” he said. “Do I stand behind my comments? Absolutely.” “I find it so unprofessional,” said Deputy Mayor Mike Vandertoorn. “I don’t know of another employer that would sit there and publicly berate their employees

Practical wife, easy life By Terry Bush Editorial - As I see the hustle and bustle of Christmas all around me, I can’t help but feel I get off pretty easy every year. Christmas shopping is now a breeze and that’s mainly thanks to my practical wife. As the Netherlanders in my family have mentioned many times, I’m Dutch by marriage. When Adriana and Cornelius Van Leeuwen arrived in Canada with three little kids in tow, they didn’t have a thimble let alone the proverbial pot to...well, you know the rest of that mildly profane saying. They were practical and frugal and that way of thinking was thoroughly embedded in their children’s psyches. Family mattered most and when little Marianneke came along as the first child born in Canada, she was cut from the same cloth. I have the opposite problem that most people have. I never know what to get my wife for Christmas because she doesn’t give a hoot about presents. Family matters, presents don’t. I try to be sly about it every December, making sure I have all the sales flyers neatly piled when she sits down to browse them on Saturday mornings. I watch patiently as she goes through them one by one and when she finishes, I say, “So, did you see anything you liked this week?” ... my subtle way of probing her mind for something, anything that can be wrapped and placed under the tree. Usually I get nowhere fast using this approach and she doesn’t realize what I’m up to until I shake my fist at her.  So, this year I came right out and asked her, “What do you want for Christmas?” Not that I anticipated getting a sufficient answer. I never do and this year was no different.  “Oh, just to get together with family would be great.” It’s pretty hard to wrap up the family and put them under one’s tree. Just to wrap up her six-foot tall brother would defeat the purpose of saving a few bucks with a practical gift. It would take three rolls of wrapping paper to cover his middle now that he’s retired. He’s over 60 too so we’ll have to cut him a little slack. The old metabolism isn’t what it used to be and most of us over 50 can attest to that. Lately we’ve been setting a $25 limit on Christmas gifts but usually one of us tends to go a little overboard. Two years ago, Mare went over the limit and my offerings looked pretty lame by comparison. Last year I got my revenge by spending ten times the limit on a present she would never ask for or buy herself, but loved nonetheless. And this year, we’re doing what we usually do. All I want for Christmas is another trip and she wants the same thing. We’ve become totally predictable in that respect. We go out for supper maybe once a year. We don’t take any weekend vacations, because we love where we live. We spend money on the necessities and not much on anything else. So when all is said and done, we probably spend what a normal person would during the course of a year except we spend it all at once to further our educations. Trouble is, once again, the promise of a trip is pretty hard to wrap so it’s a gift that does have its drawbacks. What if the trip doesn’t take place for another six months? What if someone gets sick and can’t go? That would make it a pretty lame Christmas present. But like I said, I have a very practical wife who’s easily satisfied. She did marry me after all. And after almost 29 years of marriage, there’s always one present that puts a Christmas smile on Mare’s face and it doesn’t cost me a dime. I gave it to her on Saturday night when I usually watch Hockey Night in Canada. It’s been in the planning stage for weeks. As we sat by the fire in front of the television, I pretended to show my generous side, telling Mare to watch whatever she wanted. I’d be happy to watch the last two periods of the hockey game that usually puts her to sleep. I’d already programmed the television for 8 p.m. but didn’t say a word. When the channel changed automatically, she said nothing but 40 seconds later her eyes got wide and she smiled from ear to ear. “Rudoff,” she squealed as she reverted to her six-year-old self. I chuckled as I headed off to check my email listening to her sing along with Burl Ives. Hearing her excited child-like voice joining in on every song, I couldn’t resist anymore and sat down to watch it with her. “That’s not very nice,” she scolded as the other reindeer wouldn’t let Rudolf join in. “What do you mean, this is no place for women,” she glared at Rudolf’s father, the way she does every year. And of course she had to call her 90-year-old mother on Sunday morning to tell her all about Rudolf the RedNosed Reindeer. It was officially Christmas at our place. We have three Christmas gatherings lined up and as an added bonus, Mare mentioned that her pillow was getting a little flat. One gift buy and none to wrap. Merry Christmas to me.

BRIGHTON ARENA HOLIDAY FREE SKATING SCHEDULE

Dear Editor, The December 2 Brighton Council meeting was almost at an end when Mayor Walas was questioned by one of the councillors regarding an issue that happened at the County Council meeting. A second councillor joined the discussion and finally a third. At issue were concerns over possible changes to municipal governance stemming from a piece of correspondence from one of the municipal representatives which was being discussed by County Council. In any case, the group did not endorse the correspondence in question but simply received it and sent it to the CAOs committee for further study. Listening to the Brighton councillors’ questions, it was apparent that they viewed the Mayor’s replies with a good measure of scepticism and suspicion. The tension in council chambers was palpable. Mayor Walas handled the questions adroitly and gracefully. A major blowout was avoided. The initial document, as I understand it, was brought forward by the leader of another municipality, ostensibly to discuss the

possibility of saving scarce tax dollars by combining or sharing services, not unlike as is done now with waste disposal, roads, etc. It should be recognized by everyone that the Municipality of Brighton Strategic Plan, Brighton Strategic Actions, promotes cost saving efforts by council. For example, Priority 10 reads, “Pursue cost sharing with other municipalities” (scored 10 out of 11). To further reinforce the need to reduce costs, a second item, Priority 17, (scored 9 of 11) reads, “Consider partnerships with other governments and non-profits.” Rather than being suspicious, the other members of council should be supportive of cost saving initiatives, regardless of source, and ask the Mayor, “How can we help?’” While I can see that cost sharing exercises and change can be stressful for everyone, it must be stated that the municipality is in dire need of a new financial philosophy. Budget estimates for 2014 and figures from past years show that the budget levels between 2009 and 2014 have increased by 65 per cent (from ap-

prox $11 million to 18 million). An approximate $6 million dollar increase between the 2012 and 2014 alone was noted. Between 2009 and 2012 municipal wages and benefits increased by approximately 21 percent. The first draft of the 2014 budget revealed a whopping 17.37 percent tax increase. While I assume that this number will decrease, the continuing escalation of budget numbers is alarming. Last year’s tax increase for my residence was approx six per cent or about six times the inflation rate. The Consumer Price Index (CPI) is only 0.9 percent for Ontario this year with most pension increases being about the same. With the three percent solution at both county and municipality seemingly the new norm, one can probably expect the same for this year as last. While the municipality is far from being on life-support, the constantly increasing level of taxation is starting to pinch. Ouch! and a Merry Christmas to all. Roger McMurray, Brighton

Dog bites in Conservation Areas a deep problem By Kate Everson

News - Quinte West – Dogs running loose in conservation areas are taking a big bite out of Lower Trent Conservation resources. “Dog bites have been increasing,” said Lower Trent CAO Glenda Rodgers. A letter was just received from someone running through Proctor Park who had “a good bite on the back of his leg” from a large dog running loose. The man said it was not the first time he was bitten. “Dogs off leash in conservation areas is in contravention of the regulations,” Rodgers noted. The regulations call for ticketing the person but this cannot always be enforced. Staff made attempts to increase public awareness of this problem in 2012 with a Dogs On Leash Challenge, increasing signage and giving out pamphlets and warnings.

“The issue has not been resolved with these approaches,” she said. “We feel it is necessary to increase the level of enforcement.” Currently, two enforcement officers, Mike Lovejoy and Cristal Heintzman, are qualified to ticket people in the Conservation Areas. However this is not enough. “We need to hire a security service provider,” Rodgers said. “We need to take action as soon as we can.” She said she has spoken with a provider with several years experience in the law and security field that offers enforcement compliance at a reasonable rate. Their employees are trained in bylaw enforcement and have their own equipment. In addition to ticketing, they will also attend court for the same hourly rate for contested tickets. They will also allow LTC staff to accompany them when on patrol, so they can gain expertise. The board would need to appoint them as Enforcement Officers. Staff will bring the proposal to the next board meeting in February for consideration. Jim Harrison asked if this problem was only at Proctor Park. Rodgers said it is in lots of other areas including

a particular problem at the Bleasdell Boulder. Chair Craig Kerr said 80 per cent of walkers at Proctor Park have their dogs off leash. When confronted, the walkers tell them to “kiss off.” “We could wind up in court,” he said. Mary Tadman added there are several large dogs that attack smaller dogs as well. “Hardly anybody leashes them,” she said. “Some of the big dogs even run over kids.” Glenda added the owners don’t clean up after them either. Craig Kerr said Brighton is thinking of making an off-leash area. “The municipality really needs to step in,” he said. Jim Harrison was concerned how they could police everything. Glenda Rodgers admitted they can’t be everywhere but could target some areas randomly. Harrison suggested adding surveillance cameras. Craig Kerr suggested possibly sharing services with the municipality.

Rodgers said the LTC would deliver a streamlined one-window application and permit process for landowners involving new or replacement septic systems and would include mandatory inspections for vulnerable areas identified in the Source Protection Plan.

raising initiative this year to support the important work of every MFRC across Canada. Sales from a special, limited edition plush bear called Nate would generate $2 from each bear to be directed to Sears Charitable Foundation youth development programs. A percentage of money from sales of Nate would also be donated to the CAMFRC. Susan Sweetman said support of the community means a great deal to military personnel and their families. “It’s not uncommon for military families in our community to still have a loved one deployed far away from home over the holiday season,’ she said. Military families are also forced to move a lot and entry into a new community can sometimes be difficult for children

News – Quinte West - As Susan Sweetman, Executive Director of the Military Family Resource Centre (MFRC) in Trenton noted Sunday at noon, tears flowed freely as three young ladies wrote about their experiences at the Sears Operation Wish writing challenge. Antoinette Kennedy, Lena Power and Victoria Pink, the winners in the three speaking categories – 11/12, 9/10, and 7/8 respectively – had family members, friends and strangers alike shedding tears in the Quinte Mall as they related some of the hardships experienced by families, especially at a time like Christmas. Those stories helped observers relate to Operation Wish, a program established by Sears in 2006 to show support for deployed troops and their families. The program was officially launched Sunday at the Sears store in the Quinte Mall in partnership with the MFRC, the Canadian Association of Military Family Resource Centres (CAMFRC) and the Canadian Forces Morale and Welfare Services (CFMWS). “Having served in the military and away from home for extended periods of time, I know first-hand what a relief it can be to know that someone is helping to take care of your family and looking out for their well-being,” stated Doug Campbell, President and CEO of Sears Canada, himself a former U.S. Marine. “We are very proud to provide a vehicle, through Operation Wish, to help Canadians show their support for our military and their families across the country. While the program looks a bit different each year, the goal is always the same – to build a bridge between the local military base and the community by providing a way we, as a community, can show our support for our military friends and neighbours.” It was a message 8 Wing Commander Col. David Lowthian said comes across loud and clear in the Quinte region. “The sense of community we get in this region is remarkable,” he noted. “It can’t be compared to other bases.” He said he would encourage all 8 Wing personnel to share their stories about what happens at CFB Trenton and what members do locally and on a global scale. This year, Operation Wish donated a cheque of $10,000 to the newly formed CAMFRC and, since its inception, has donated over $100,000 to national military family support programs. Sears introduced an additional fund-

First flu cases of the season reported the City of Kawartha Lakes. The three cases are all adults, none of whom received a flu shot this year. According to information received by the Health Unit, all three individuals are recovering from their illness. “Flu season is officially here, so we encourage local residents to take precautions and protect themselves and their loved ones from becoming sick,” stated Linda McCarey, the director of communicable disease control with the HKPR District Health Unit. “Reducing the risk of becoming sick

from influenza is especially important at this time of year when we come together with family and friends to celebrate the holidays,” she said in a press release. McCarey noted the confirmation of influenza is no surprise. “Typically we see influenza cases around this time of year, and we expect to see more cases in the coming days and weeks,” she stated.  “While these are the first flu cases in the area, there have also been influenza cases and outbreaks confirmed throughout the province this flu season.”

Through the end of November, there have been 126 lab-confirmed influenza cases reported in Ontario, according to Public Health Ontario (www.publichealthontario.ca) . In a given year, the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care estimates seasonal influenza can result in up to 1,000 hospitalizations and up to 1,600 deaths in the province. Influenza virus spreads mainly from person to person through coughing or sneezing. People can become infected by touching objects or surfaces with flu

News – Trent Hills – With the first cases of influenza confirmed in the region, local health officials are asking people to take precautions to avoid bringing flu home for the holidays. The Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge (HKPR) District Health Unit is reporting the first three lab-confirmed cases of influenza for the 2013-14 flu season in its area, which includes the City of Kawartha Lakes, Northumberland County and Haliburton County. The three influenza cases, all confirmed by lab results, were detected in

viruses on them and then touching their eyes, mouth or nose. Flu symptoms include fever, chills, cough, sore throat, headache, muscle aches and extreme weakness and fatigue. The best way to prevent becoming ill with the flu is to get the flu shot every year, McCarey says. While the Health Unit’s community clinics are now over, there are other ways for local residents to get a free flu shot. People can check with their health care provider about getting a flu shot for anyone six months of age and older. Many pharmacies in the area are also providing flu shots to everyone five years of age and older. For a full list of local pharmacies offering flu shots, visit the Health Unit’s website (www.hkpr.on.ca). To further stop the spread of flu, the Health Unit recommends people wash their hands thoroughly and often, sneeze and cough into their sleeves and stay home from work and holiday parties if they are sick. Eating well, getting sufficient sleep and being physically active on a regular basis also helps keep the body’s immune system strong. “Don’t spread the flu this holiday season,” McCary says. “That is one gift your family and friends definitely do not want to receive.”

Man found in woods after reported missing from hunting camp News – Trent Hills – A man reported missing from a hunting camp in the middle of the night was found “in good health” a few hours later by police. Northumberland OPP were notified around 3 a.m. December 15 that the hunter, Paul Feltham had left the camp at 122 Mack Trail on a four-wheeler around 10:30 p.m. the previous night and not returned. Police said officers arrived at the scene and began searching the trail which became increasingly dense. The search was stopped until the canine unit arrived, to prevent contamination of the trail. A canine officer from the City of Kawartha Lakes OPP arrived shortly after 5 a.m. and joined the officers in their search along the track taken by the ATV which took them to the intersection of Mack Trail and the 4th line of Belmont. The man was found in the woods around 7 a.m. and returned to the camp.

Musician believes in saying ‘Merry Christmas to all!’ – none of this Happy Holidays stuff

“It’s Christmas to Me,” which Colborne-area musician Don Murdock co-wrote, has generated considerable comment online and in the national news media for its criticism of political correctness that discourages the use of ‘Merry Christmas’ and other traditions at this time of year. Photo: John Campbell By John Campbell

Entertainment – Colborne – Don Murdock is no Ebenezer Scrooge. He loves Christmas and hates that its meaning is slowly being buried under the combined weight of political correctness and crass commercialism. “When somebody says Happy Holidays, I say ‘Thank you, Merry Christmas,’” he says. The 63-year-old Colborne-area musician has been a firm believer in Christmas and what it stands for ever since he “was raised Catholic” growing up in Oshawa. He’s no longer a “card-carrying” member of the church but he remains “spiritual” and he still has strong feelings about what December 25 is supposed to celebrate, the birth of Jesus Christ. But somewhere along the way, people in authority began “making decisions to get away from this,” Murdock said. Schools stopped holding Christmas concerts with religious elements and outdoor nativity scenes once displayed everywhere have greatly diminished. “Stuff like that over the years has been bothering me,” Murdock said, so he decided to write a song to express his feelings. The result, “It’s Christmas

to Me,” co-written with producer Brian Dolph and produced by Café Music Group of Belleville, has garnered international attention online and been the subject of numerous articles by major newspapers. The lyrics lament politicians telling people to take Christ out of Christmas and hide symbols that celebrate his birth. “They say it might offend those who don’t believe. Let me tell you, mister, now you’re offending me,” the song asserts, and then asks “Why must everything be politically correct? All we need to do is treat each other with some respect.” That’s the message Murdock wanted to get across, to “allow people who believe in expressing Merry Christmas the opportunity to do so ... All we’re saying is December 25 is Christmas. “It’s just a great time of the year,” when “a lot of differences are put aside for a few weeks,” and people “seem to be in a better frame of mind,” Murdock said. When he hears Christmas carols being sung, “it brings back wonderful memories.” Murdock said he’s “tickled pink” by the response to the song, which has been “unbelievable,” earning thousands of hits on You Tube and his website, http://donmurdockmusic.com . The initial reaction left him wondering if he was out of fashion with current thought but now “I’m getting more pro than I’m getting con,” he said. People are telling him “it’s about time somebody took the lead, and they’re all jumping on the bandwagon.” It’s not the first time Murdock’s music has attracted widespread attention. A firefighter before becoming a professor at Durham College 20 years ago teaching those wanting to join the profession, Murdock wrote a song based on the tragic death of an infant he tried to save in a fire in the mid-1980s. He and his partner saved one child but not a baby girl. He accompanied her in the ambulance to the hospital but he knew she was dead before he handed over to

the physician, he said. For his efforts on that day, and his saving a young man a year earlier, Murdock was awarded a Medal of Bravery by the Governor-General. “I was just doing my job as a first responder,” he said.

Last year Murdock released “Don’t Call Me a Hero,” a song he had written as part of the healing process and to honour the baby girl who had died. It touched people who have been in similar situations like his. He received thousands of messages from firefight-

ers, nurses, doctors and military people from around the world, thanking him for putting into words what they felt. Today, he marvels his songs are now on the same play lists at radio stations as those of his idols, including Merle Haggard and Alan Jackson.

Sorry, Santa might be a little late this year... Delivering presents to children around the world in one night is nothing compared to the endless activities, exciting outings and incredible meals at Seasons. Now Santa’s really tuckered out!

Residents present suggestions for addition to arena By John Campbell

News – Warkworth – Staff at Trent Hills now have a good idea – many, actually of what the community wants included in an addition to be built

onto the Warkworth arena. They were given dozens of suggestions last week at a public meeting organized by Percy ward councillors Kim McNeil and Meirion Jones.

We Wish You

AAndMerry Christmas A Happy New Year! With glad tidings to all our neighbours and friends at this joyous time of year. It has been our pleasure to serve you over the past 7 years. We truly value your business and support, and renew our commitment to serving you well in the year ahead.

They included setting aside space for the 7 Hills Community Pantry food bank, storage, large and small meetings, youth activities, day care and after-school programs, college courses, bingo, and exercise classes. 7 Hills treasurer Martin Hare said the food bank’s current space “is not adequate (and), unfortunately, this is not a shrinking business.” There were also suggestions made to provide a banquet hall with a fully equipped kitchen that the Abundance Project could use, an office for social services, dressing rooms, and lockers. David Pollack spoke in favour of creating a “community hub” that would offer “a diversity of events” that would draw people from outside Warkworth. Former council member Dean Peters offered the same sentiment, saying the place has to be unique and special to “capture the imagination” of people in neighbouring communities so that it brings people, ideas, money and energy into the community. His suggestions included installing a collapsible stage for use during dances, parties and dramas, and providing a court for pickleball, a sport played with paddles. “No matter what the project ends up being, cost is go-

ing to be a challenge,” Jones observed. If the municipality is going to spend a few million dollars on an addition, “we have to shift gears to a different plane,” Peters said, and look to turn the arena into “a yearround facility that gets an awful lot more people using it, otherwise the taxpayers will not be pleased.” Chief Administrative Officer Mike Rutter provided some historical context for the small group of about 20 people that turned out Dec. 9 for the meeting at St. Paul’s United Church’s Gathering Place. A recreation master plan put together shortly after Trent Hills was formed concluded the municipality “had an oversupply of ice” and didn’t need three arenas. A structural analysis determined they were “functionally obsolete,” which doesn’t mean “they were unsafe or that they should be abandoned or condemned,” Rutter said, but that “they really needed significant investment” in order to continue using them. Another study proposed a recreation and wellness centre be built in Campbellford and a field house in Hastings, to replace that village’s arena. But it wasn’t until Friends of the Warkworth Arena began pushing for something to be

done at the Warkworth arena right away that the municipality turned its attention to its facility, Rutter said. As a result of their lobbying, the municipality has spent more than $500,000 at the Warkworth arena to bring it up to “today’s standards, for the most part.” Rutter said the plan was to upgrade the second floor warm room and make it fully accessible but “that was always considered to be the next phase (and) really it wasn’t on the horizon.” The Friends suggested building an addition instead and offered to assist in paying for the project, which the municipality agreed to include with the recreation and wellness centre and field house as part of the Flourish campaign. It’s a joint effort with the community and

Rutter said the ideas presented that evening will give staff “a good sense” of what the community’s needs are before a detailed design is obtained early in the new year, when another meeting will be held to present it. He welcomed Brenda Partridge’s suggestion the municipality engage the public school in the process of finding out what the community wants to see in an addition. The 70-minute meeting had been “tremendously helpful” for him and the other staff members who attended. “This gives us a real good start,” Rutter said.

Age Well Network has just the medicine for keeping seniors healthy By Sue Dickens

Lifestyles - Campbellford - The Age Well Network (AWN) has just the medicine for keeping the organization and the seniors of Trent Hills healthy. Members held a regular meeting recently at Island Park Retirement Community to discuss their plans for an Age Well Fair in 2014 and to get updates on health related programs. The tentative date for the fair is Thursday, April 24 from 1 to 3 p.m. with April 17 as the alternate choice. Local physiotherapist Doreen Sharpe who co-chairs the AWN committee began the meeting leading a discussion about the fair, noting there will be room for 20 different services and it will be done on a ďŹ rst-come ďŹ rst-served basis. Booths will be for Age Well Network

members only. Geared to the elderly in Trent Hills, the fair has attracted as many as 100 interested seniors in the past. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We plan on getting together in January to get the posters ďŹ nished,â&#x20AC;? noted Sharpe. Others AWN members attending the meeting included Sharon Abernethy (physiotherapist), Maureen Dikun (Heart and Stroke Foundation), Krista Hazlewood (Island Park Retirement Community), Pauline Loney (Health coach services), Bev Meyers (Indoor Walking/Fitness), Krista Skutovich (secretary, Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge District Health Unit) and Kathy Thompson (Closing the Gap Health Care). Each of those in attendance offered updates on what is happening in

their ďŹ eld such as the continuation of monthly blood pressure clinics at the Campbellford hospital carried out by Dikun for the Heart and Stroke Foundation. They take place on the hospitalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second ďŹ&#x201A;oor from 1-3 p.m. on the third Friday each month. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We regularly see 30 to 35 people,â&#x20AC;? she noted. Meyers talked about an indoor walking program at St. Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s United Church in Campbellford, Tuesday and Friday mornings, 10 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 11 a.m. Qi Gong classes are held in Warkworth, Thursdays from 10-11 a.m. (also in Cobourg and Brighton) Closing the Gap Health Care is starting to offer exercise and fall prevention classes (Local Health Integration Network funded), said Thompson.

Exercise classes and falls prevention programs are being offered in Port Hope, Campbellford, Colborne, Hastings, Lindsay, Omemee, Fenelon Falls and Bobcaygeon. Some are in retirement residences and these classes are open to members of the general public if there is space available. Others are being run in community based locations. Exercise classes are â&#x20AC;&#x153;drop inâ&#x20AC;? by nature and run ongoing, she explained. Falls prevention programs require registration and run in 12-week blocks. Abernethy told the group she recently completed a Seniorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Fitness Instructor course through the Canadian Centre for Activity and Aging (CCAA) and may possibly be starting a new program in Warkworth in January. Sharpe of Sharpe Physiotherapy noted her aqua therapy classes â&#x20AC;&#x153;are

going strong . . . great for arthritis, total hips and knees fractures.â&#x20AC;? That is just some of what she provides. As well information about diabetes and cardiac education programs and an exercise program for patients with neurological disorders including stroke were discussed. Skutovich said the walkability report results will soon be presented to Trent Hills council. As well the HeartWise program â&#x20AC;&#x153;is growing in Northumberland,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Being HeartWise designated can reassure health professionals that they are referring clients to safe community programs,â&#x20AC;? she said. The date of the next AWN meeting is set for Thursday, January 23, 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. at Island Park Retirement Community.

* Holiday visitors may frighten the new pet and he or she may become weary of strangers at the outset. * The activities in the household may pose safety hazards for the young animal. An abundance of rich foods and various decorations could be ingested, potentially causing illness. * New pets should be carefully supervised around children to see how they behave. A child may not be accustomed to handling a puppy or kitten and could injure the animal. Similarly, the pet may be skittish and lash out at the child. Adults busy with holiday obligations may be easily distracted and miss how their child is interacting with the new pet.

Presqu'ile Animal Hospital

Reputable pet breeders and animal shelters often discourage individuals from adopting or purchasing pets as holiday gifts. Many organizations and animal businesses require a careful vetting of potential pet parents to ensure the animal will be placed with a family and in a home that is suitable. Animal welfare groups warn that an estimated 50 percent of pets adopted during the holidays end up right back at shelters. This can scar the pet. Avoid the temptation of giving a companion animal as a present. If it is your intention to gift an animal, talk to the gift recipient and discuss the pros and cons beforehand. Then you can work together and make the right decision for all parties involved, including the pet.

Though it often is, buying a pet should not be an impulse purchase. You see sad eyes looking back at you from behind a cage door and want to give that animal a new home. However, introducing an animal into a family is not a decision to take lightly. You must factor how well the pet will fit in with the family dynamic. Do schedules allow for quality time spent with the animal? Is it a financially good time to care for an animal that will cost money? Are you aware of how long the pet will live? Making those big decisions for a person on the receiving end of your well-intentioned gift may be crossing a line. Would you want to have such a lifechanging decision made for you?

The hectic nature of the holiday season can be a difficult time for a pet to grow acclimated to its new environment. He or she may be frightened to assimilate or take longer to settle down. Pets often need several weeks of quiet and constant care to become comfortable in their new environments. Here are some other reasons why the holidays are not a good time for new pets.

* Once the glow of the holidays wear off, children may be disillusioned with the new responsibility that has fallen into their hands. They may not like the responsibility that comes with being a good pet owner.

Giving a pet as a present seems like a great idea, but shoppers might want to give it more consideration before giving a gift that is such a considerable responsibility. A puppy at Christmas or a bunny at Easter may be given with good intentions, but that well-meaning sentiment can easily backfire, ending with the pet being given up for adoption when recipients donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel up to the task of raising a pet. In such instances, the companion animal pays the steepest price.

Furthermore, the holiday season is not one ideally suited for making careful decisions. People are often swept up in emotions and even stress, and shoppers may not be thinking rationally.

R0012476095

Many people consider pets great holiday gifts. But in spite of their popularity as presents, pets do not always make the most appropriate holiday gift.

Therapy dogs lend a helping paw at Loyalist College News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Belleville â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The winter months can be a stressful time for anybody. Falling temperatures and less daylight can make anyone cranky, but for the students at Loyalist College cold weather is likely the least of their worries, as they head into a busy exam schedule that could determine their future career path. In an effort to help students get through their busy exam schedules, Loyalist College and St. Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ambulance partnered up this past week to bring almost two dozen registered therapy dogs to the college, to meet and greet with students in the college gymnasium and in residence. While the therapy dogs are far from the only measure taken by college staff to promote mental health among students, this year marks the ďŹ rst time dogs have visited Loyalist. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an overwhelming amount of work studying that goes into those exams, and not to mention when weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re at a time of year where itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cold, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dark, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve run out of OSAP and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to prepare for Christmas,â&#x20AC;? said Loyalist counsellor Adam Gosney, explaining why the therapy dogs are needed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to navigate relationships, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re thinking of what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to do next semester ... Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of pressures on top of having to focus on being academically successful.â&#x20AC;? Residence co-ordinator Dave Templar said the response to the dogs was so strong the college will likely look into bringing the dogs back at

regular intervals. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The response has been so overwhelmingly positive that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll certainly look at maintaining a more regular partnership with St. Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ambulance,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a small way that they can come down and shed some stress and relieve some anxiety.â&#x20AC;? Each dog is independently owned by their volunteer handlers, who have the dogs specially trained and inspected by St. Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. Any sign of aggression or nervousness in a stressful situation is likely enough to disqualify a dog from becoming registered said volunteer Peter Hodgson, who brought his six-year old chocolate lab to the college Friday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re seeing people that are coming everyday,â&#x20AC;? Hodgson laughed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Before they go to the exam, and then after the

(right) Loyalist student Katie Horwood gets a kiss from one of the therapy dogs brought to the college this past week to help students cope with busy exam schedules.

Horwood said like many other students at the college she has a dog at home, and being away hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always been easy for her. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have a German Shepherd at home and I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seen her in like three months,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard being away.â&#x20AC;?

WE PROVIDE INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS FOR ALL YOUR ELECTRICAL NEEDS

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Quinte West â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Council has approved a new $22 million Public Works building in the North Murray Industrial Park and staff will go ahead with design and construction. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s $16-million vehicle valued ďŹ&#x201A;eet will be stored indoors which will aid in extending its longevity,â&#x20AC;? said Chris Angelo, director of Public Works and Environmental Services at a Dec. 16 council meeting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In addition, vehicle maintenance frequency will increase with in house maintenance and wash bays, all of which will extend a vehicleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life.â&#x20AC;? Angelo added that with the new consolidated facility, supervisors will be better able and equipped to arrange work and manage task teams. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We do not anticipate any negative impact on our existing vehicle maintenance program,â&#x20AC;? he said. The cost of the new facility will be funded as part of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tenyear capital investment plan. Councillor Jim Alyea asked if the Quinte Access buses would

be given space in the new building. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Transit is growing,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The design should be made to add the buses. Right now vehicles are sitting outside and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to get the snow off. We need to do it right.â&#x20AC;? Angelo said staff could free up space in the new facility for the buses, or they could use the yard at 18 Pelham St. which will be vacated once they negotiate with Hydro One at 30 Pelham. Councillor Paul Kyte asked if including the buses would increase costs. Finance Director David Clazie said it would add $1 million to debt ďŹ nancing. Kyte said he would hate to build a project and not cover it all. Councillor Sally Freeman said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have to have a building big enough. We need to look ahead.â&#x20AC;? Councillor Doug Whitney felt they could still use Pelham to store vehicles. Councillor Fred Kuypers commented, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a leaky building at Pelham. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t use it any more!â&#x20AC;? Councillor Leslie Roseblade questioned the efďŹ ciency of dispatching all the city from one

centre. She wondered why the ďŹ re department was being given old buildings which were good enough for them but not for Public Works. She also felt they were taking money out of the community by doing in-house maintenance. Roseblade added, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The employees are not taking care of the old buildings now. How will they take care of a new building?â&#x20AC;? Councillor Jim Harrison said the local businesses will beneďŹ t from materials purchased for the new facility. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is one of the best moves weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever made,â&#x20AC;? he said. Mayor John Williams said the municipality needs to try and â&#x20AC;&#x153;rejigâ&#x20AC;? the building so it will accommodate the buses in the initial design. Angelo said he will take a look at that, noting they have allowed some room in the facility for future growth, but adding buses would take that away. Alyea said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s do it right the ďŹ rst time.â&#x20AC;? Council voted in favour of the new facility, with only Kuypers and Roseblade opposed.

QBSC’s holiday showcase By Steve Jessel

Entertainment – Belleville – The holidays wouldn’t be complete without the annual Christmas performance by the Quinte Ballet School of Canada (QBSC), and Saturday at Centennial Secondary School dancers from the professional and recreational divisions put on a mesmerizing performance for a pair of afternoon shows, complete with lavish costumes and pleasing takes on classic Christmas carols. Opening with a charming performance of “Nutcracker a la Duke Ellington” featuring younger dancers from the Tap 2 section of the school’s recreational division, the show took a decidedly artistic turn with the smooth, gliding choreography of “Snow” featuring dancers from the professional division. A trip around the world would see A Spanish dance led by Ayako Fukuyama brought a splash of colour to the QSBC holiday performance multicultural dances from Spain, China Saturday. and Arabia take centre stage before the “Young Girls Dance” made way for perhaps the cutest performance of the night, “Shepherdess Girls with Les Petits Agneaux,” featuring the youngest dancers from the school’s primary ballet section dressed as a herd (above) ”Snow” featured dancers from the QBSC professional division, including Ayako, Fukuyama, of tiny sheep. Rebecca Funari, Nami Harada, Saori Koga, Emily Puumala, Isabella Rapino and Sakura Sato. A brief musical intermission had the QBSC Quartet (Lenni Stewart, Sandy-Parisi-Unger, Mitchell Cox and Tibor Csazar) regale the audience with a rendition of O Holy Night and a holiday Christmas medley, which was followed by a Russian dance, a solo performance by Saori Koga of the “Sugar Plum Fairy” and a colourful group performance “Waltz of the Flowers,” before all cast took to the stage for the “Carol of the Bells” finale. (above) The “Waltz of the Flowers” was the show’s final performance, before an all-cast finale to the music of “Carol of the Bells.”

Zwickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Island Sabre being refurbished at 8 Wing

By Ross Lees

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Quinte West â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Sabre jet which once stood so proudly in Zwickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Park in Belleville may soon be back on that pedestal as good as new â&#x20AC;&#x201C; thanks to the efforts of a bunch of dedicated Aerospace and Telecommunications Engineering Support Squadron (ATESS) personnel and the forward thinking of the City of Belleville and 8 Wing at CFB Trenton. About a year-and-a-half ago, the iconic Sabre had to be removed from its scenic Zwickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Park home because relentless weather had eaten away at the airframe to the point it was no longer safe to be on the pedestal. There was talk the aircraft would just be disposed of because it would cost far too much to refurbish it and put it back in its place of honour. Belleville Mayor Neill Ellis, however, did not like the idea of just trashing some-

thing as historically significant as that Sabre. He wanted it refurbished and put back in its place of honour, and he felt there was no better place for that to happen than through the military. He contacted 8 Wing and they took it back under their wing, so to speak. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been there ever since, but it has not just been gathering dust. ATESS personnel have begun the task of dismantling it and returning it to its former glory. The task, however, has not been without trials and tribulations. Once the aircraft had been moved into the fabulous new home of ATESS, you could say things really began to hum. Dormant nests of bees warmed to the atmosphere in the building and the canopy of the aircraft was covered with bumble bees trying to get out. Finally disposed of, the ATESS personnel got to work repairing the

aircraft. 8 Wing Commander Col. David Lowthian was made aware of the project in August by Wing Chief Warrant Officer (WCWO) Sandor Gyuk shortly after he took over command of the base. A chat with Mayor Ellis shortly thereafter resulted in the project being brought back onto the front burner. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of Mayor Ellisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; concerns was that the project would be done with the attention to detail required for this project,â&#x20AC;? Col. Lowthian said in a recent interview. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He wanted to make sure the paint was the right colour, and that the alphanumerical code was correct along with the markings of the aircraft. The project will ultimately be beneficial to both the Wing and the City of Belleville. Work of this nature helps keep the ATESS personnel sharp with the refurbishing they

love and it will get done with that attention to detail and pride of ownership only the Royal Canadian Air Force personnel could produce, especially as they approach the 90th year of anniversary of the RCAF. ATESS continues to work on the project and they expect to have it completed by the beginning of June, 2014. Things like the ejection seat have been refurbished and the canopy is being rebuilt of composite materials to help fend of the weather. The ejection seat will not go back in the aircraft. The entire airframe has been disassembled and significant corrosion was discovered in the wing box and the tail assembly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The wing box has been rebuilt as good as new,â&#x20AC;? Col. Lowthian said, noting the pride of ownership displayed by the ATESS personnel. That pride of ownership has basically three aspects in this particular project, according to Col. Lowthian. There is the pride of the personnel working on the project, there is the pride of the community he is sure will exist when the Sabre goes back on that pedestal, and then there is the pride of the men who actually flew the aircraft. Recently, Mayor Ellis, Brad Wilson, Director of Environmental and Operation Services with the City of Belleville and Ken Kee visited the base to get an early look at the project. Ken Kee actually flew the Sabre in the 60s and his presence at ATESS brought out the pride in their work of the ATESS personnel. Col. Lowthain admits to feeling that pride of ownership himself on all those levels. In his 24 years in the RCAF, he has spent about 14 years at CFB Trenton, but lived all of that time in Belleville. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s that connection to the community and I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think you can put a price tag on that,â&#x20AC;? he said. The project is now moving along and the deadline for the project being at least 95 per cent finished is now June 1. Col. Lowthain

would like to see the aircraft back on the pedestal by mid-June, when perhaps a special rededication ceremony could be held and the aircraft represented to the City of Belleville. Prior to that time, Col. Lowthain hopes to have Mayor Ellis back to the base and perhaps have him sit in the cockpit before the canopy is put back on. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It will give us a chance to get him in the cockpit and get that hero shot,â&#x20AC;? he laughed. The timeline is critical for Col. Lowthian if he wants to be involved in the presentation to the city, which he very much does. Throughout July, he will be taking part in RIMPAC as the Pacific Deputy Combined Joint Forces Air Component Commander. Rim of the Pacific Exercise or RIMPAC, is the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest international maritime warfare exercise and Col. Lowthian will be the deputy to an Australian Air Force officer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quite a long, involved and important exercise which means considerable time away from my duties here,â&#x20AC;? he said. But before he leaves for that assignment, he would like to dedicate that Sabre back to the City of Belleville in time for the Canada Day celebration and Waterfront Festival. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d love to be up there shaking Neilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hand and see him sit in that ejection seat again â&#x20AC;&#x201C; just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t touch the handles,â&#x20AC;? he chuckled. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is probably a more aggressive target than we would probably originally have set prior to knowing the condition of the aircraft, but I think we can meet it.â&#x20AC;? Mayor Ellis expressed a great deal of pride in seeing the project come to fruition. After visiting the base and seeing how the project is coming along, he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m really blown away. This may be the highlight of my term. When you say that to people, they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe it, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s true,â&#x20AC;? he said.

Wastewater Treatment Plant cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest capital investment By Kate Everson

News - Quinte West â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The expansion and upgrade of Trentonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Wastewater Treatment Plant is projected to cost over $71.2 million. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is our largest capital investment,â&#x20AC;? says Chris Angelo, manager of Public Works and Environmental Services. He said it is extremely important that they choose the consultant with expertise and optimization of equipment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The best is not necessarily the cheapest,â&#x20AC;? he added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We will save money in the long run.â&#x20AC;? Through a formal evaluation process, the city chose JL Richards and Associates as the more

experienced team, speciďŹ cally for design and construction. The design costs proposed by JLR represent $3.7 million that will be spent over the next couple of years. The project is expected to span over seven years. Angelo noted this company has worked with the city before and been on time and under budget. Jim Harrison added that the company can also help the city in getting government funding for the project. The city has just been turned down for $2 million from the province through the Small, Rural and Northern Municipal Infrastructure Fund. The province stated that 350 applications

were received and the city did not pass the pre-screen â&#x20AC;&#x153;primarily because other applicants with highly critical projects had more challenging economic conditions as measured by property assessments and incomes.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;This was a key element in the evaluation process,â&#x20AC;? Angelo said. Matt Tracey, manager of Water and Wastewater Services, added that JLT has worked with them in Trenton and Frankford plants and has an excellent reference check. Don Kuntze commented he was very disappointed that the provincial government said no to the funding. He asked if staff has any plans to contact MPP Rob

Milligan or Premier Kathleen Wynne for reconsideration. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Are we going to just sit and take it, or are we going to complain?â&#x20AC;? he asked. Angelo said they will follow up and see what projects got the funding. He noted this project has a direct impact on improving the Bay of Quinte. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a very signiďŹ cant project,â&#x20AC;? he said. He added that the Ministry of the Environment had letters of support for this project. Kuntze asked if they can put the project on hold if there are ďŹ nancial challenges as they proceed. Angelo said it is a phased-in plan and they will be pursuing other funding opportunities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to accommodate growth in the municipality,â&#x20AC;? Angelo said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Others

are getting it across the province.â&#x20AC;? Jim Harrison said this consulting ďŹ rm has worked

with them in the past and has knowledge of their system. He supported phasing in the project.

12 Years a Slave to play at Aron your mind and forget it. What we have here is a blistering, brilliant, straight-up classic.â&#x20AC;? The filmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s director, wellknown actor Steve McQueen explained, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a narrative about today. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a black movie. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an American movie. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a narrative about human respect, more than anything.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Aron is our communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s theatre. Inside its walls, we are visually transported to other worlds and experiencesâ&#x20AC;? said Christianson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;On December 20, the Aron will be opening up the world of the American south during the slave trade. It will not be an easy ride. It will be unforgettable.â&#x20AC;? There will also be some holiday fun after the film has been shown. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After seeing 12 Years a Slave, we will all be ready for something fun and light,â&#x20AC;? stated Christianson. On December 27, Disneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wonderful animated movie,

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Frozenâ&#x20AC;? (rated G) begins. It will play at the usual 7:30 p.m. time until December 30, with a 2 p.m. matinee on Sunday, December 29. The Aronâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Christmas present to its community is a series of eight family film classes starting on Christmas day. All eight will be â&#x20AC;&#x153;pay what you canâ&#x20AC;? matinees and will start at 2 p.m. as follows: Wednesday, December 25, Christmas with the Kranks; Friday, December 27, Fantastic Mr. Fox; Saturday, December 28, Forrest Gump; Monday, December 30, Finding Neverland; Tuesday, December 31, Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a Wonderful Life; Thursday, January 2, Harry Potter I; Friday, January 3, Big Fish; Saturday, January 4, Love Actually. And donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget to give the gift of fun. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the ideal stocking stuffer: a movie gift bundle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a regular movie and large popcorn â&#x20AC;&#x201C; for the incredible price of $10.â&#x20AC;?

High school wrestling hits the mats By Steve Jessel

have to be smart, you have to know your technique, and although strength is definitely a part of it, it’s not everything.” Fischer has been coaching the wrestling team at QSS for the past four years, and on Thursday the school hosted the annual tournament for the third consecutive year. A former Campbellford District High School and Western University wrestler, Fischer said it isn’t always easy for R0012151161

Sports – Belleville – The gloves came off at Quinte Secondary School Thursday afternoon for an invitational wrestling tournament, and with more than 165 wrestlers from nine different schools there was no shortage of pins, reversals and clinches throughout the day. “It’s never your objective to try and hurt your opponent,” said QSS wrestling coach Tyler Fischer. “You

younger kids to pick up the sport, and that they have a lot to learn when they pick it up for the first time. “You come into this sport and it’s not like basketball or hockey, where these kids have been at it since they were five years old,” he said. “You’re really starting with very raw athletes and they have a lot to learn in those first couple years... a lot of body awareness and body control, as well as a lot of conditioning work, and a lot of strength training just so that their bodies can handle this tough sport.” While boys wrestling is still more commonplace than girls wrestling, Fischer said there’s been a definite surge of popularity among young women after women’s wrestling was included into the Olympics, and at QSS Friday six female athletes from the school participated.

Not only that, but halfway through the day those six athletes were undefeated. “Guys wrestling has been around for a lot longer,” Fischer conceded. “Girls wrestling is still in its first 20 years of existence, but now with it being in the Olympics we’re getting a lot more females out and the sport is building. There’s some really competitive athletes on the girls side.” When the dust had settled, a number of QSS athletes came away clutching a variety of hardware from the tournament. Taking gold in their respective weight classes were Emma Fowler, Emily Babcock, Meaghan Weinhold and Ben Doran; taking silver in their respective divisions were Roberta Drummond, Elizabeth Drummond and Chris McRae, and taking bronze were Dylan Gagne, Sean Ward, and Joeb Babcock.

The Bay of Quinte finals take place February 13 at Moira Secondary School while COSSA takes place

February 20 in Cobourg. OFSAA takes place this year from March 5-7 in Brampton.

Entertainment â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Belleville â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The classic songs of the holidays came alive at Quinte Secondary School Saturday night for the annual Quinte Symphony concert â&#x20AC;&#x153;A Christmas Tapestry,â&#x20AC;? and despite heavy snowfall keeping some music fans away and cutting into ticket sales, symphony president Jack Evans said the annual Christmas concert still managed to pull in roughly 300 spectators. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I expect weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll lose some money on this concert as the audience was smaller than we usually get at a Christmas concert, but no where near as much as we originally feared with the weather situation,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As president, I simply canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t thank our Quinte area audience enough for being so faithful and supportive under such conditions.â&#x20AC;? While the holidays are a time of celebration for most people, the Quinte Symphony performance had a deďŹ nite undertone of sadness this year, as the group mourned the passing of Roy Bonisteel, a long-time promoter, supporter, benefactor and honourary patron. Roughly 20 members of Bonisteelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family were in the audience for the performance, which was dedicated to his memory. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There will probably be many more concerts by the Quinte Symphony in the years ahead,â&#x20AC;? Evans said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There will not be another Roy Bonisteel.â&#x20AC;? Opening with A Christmas Overture, the symphony explored classic Christmas tunes such as the Nutcracker, and invited audience participation for old favourites like O Come All Ye Faithful. The Hastings and Prince Edward Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Choir under Rudolf Heidjens also performed

NHL Alumni tour visits Belleville

Sports – Belleville – It may not have been the McSorley-Gretzky combo hockey fans remember, but at Yardmen Arena Friday night at least one Gretzky took to the ice alongside Wayne’s old bodyguard when the NHL Alumni Tour in support of the Special Olympics Law Enforcement Torch Run came to Belleville. It was a light-hearted atmosphere at the arena come game time, and to help kick off the opening puck drop a member of the Belleville Police Service rappelled down from the rafters with an honourary puck in hand for guest coach Walter Gretzky, Police Chief Cory McMullan and Belleville Mayor Neil Ellis. Once the game started, guest referee and former Toronto Maple Leaf Dave Hutchinson took over the microphone, giving a play-by-play account and appealing to the crowd as the NHL alumni battled a team of local law enforcement all-stars. While some of the older stars such as Marty McSorley, former Montreal Canadien Mike Napier and former Toronto Maple Leaf Bill Derlago took it easy for most of the game, a couple of the younger guys clearly were looking to put on a show.

Long-time NHLer Matthew Barnaby saw his 16-year career come to an early end after struggling with symptoms of a concussion in 2007, and on Friday night he pulled out a full bag of stick handling tricks in his assault on the law enforcement net. Former Belleville Bull Brent Gretzky also looked to have some swagger in his step as he joyfully took part in odd-man rushes, and former Maple Leafs sniper Rick Vaive was as deadly accurate as ever. Vaive became the first Toronto Maple Leaf in history to score 50 goals in a season, in the 1981-1982 campaign. Other former NHLers to take part Friday night included former Maple Leaf goaltender Mark Laforest, three-time Stanley Cup winner with the Edmonton Oilers Mike Krushelnyski and 18-year NHL veteran Dave Reid. Each winter, the NHL Alumni tour visits roughly 30 communities across Ontario, supporting a variety of different local charities and organizations. In Belleville Friday night, proceeds from the game will support the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics Ontario, which is a community based, provincewide event that sees the “Flame of Hope” carried Three-time Stanley Cup winner with the Edmonton Oilers Mike Krushelnyski (left) and former Edmonton Oiler Marty McSorley Please see “NHL” on page B4 celebrate after a goal during the NHL Alumni game.

Lifestyles - Campbellford A naturopathic perspective on the health of seniors was the topic of a presentation by Dr. Andrea Bull, guest speaker at a recent meeting of the Age Well Network (AWN) of Trent Hills. “Most seniors that visit a naturopathic doctor are either brought in by a family member or they are not having any success with conventional medicine approaches,” said Dr. Bull. “Usually it is due to poor diet, poor lifestyle, overmedication or they are on so many meds they don’t want to take another medication for the symptoms they are having,” she added. Before talking about the modalities she offers Dr. Bull did say there seems to be a lot of “misinformation out there” about her profession. “We are trained similar to medical doctors. We can do the same physical exams, lab testing, MRIs and more,” she said. She noted that “a lot of the things we do can interact with pharmaceuticals so we study pharmacology.” She uses homeopathic medicine as one of the tools in her medicine chest “trying to match symptoms to a remedy.” Homeopathic medicines don’t interact with any pharmaceuticals at all, “so they are nice to use with elderly people who are on meds.” Dr. Bull recommended use of a website (www.drugs. com) where people can input their medications and find out if they might have any drug interactions. She also utilizes acupuncture and Chinese herbs in her treatments as needed. “The key to naturopathic medicine is we are always trying to get to the root cause so you don’t have to keep taking

Dr. Andrea Bull, a naturopathic doctor in Campbellford, was the guest speaker at a recent meeting of the Age Well Network of Trent Hills. Doreen Sharpe, the Network’s co-chair, points to a list of ingredients of “shakes” on the market today as presented in a chart.  Dr. Bull talked about diet and nutrition among other topics during her presentation.

medications all the time,” she explained. “Diet and nutrition are often somewhat of an easy fix in most but in the elderly population there can be many obstacles. Mobility, access, and cost can all be issues regarding healthy dietary choices,” she noted. “I don’t charge astronomical amounts,” she added. “Usually in most people the main obstacle is themselves. They need to fix their diet or make lifestyle changes.” Dr. Bull did take to task the nutritional shakes that are on the market today. “Has anyone looked at those ingredients? . . . You might as well have a chocolate bar and a multivitamin,” she said, after quizzing the AWN members if they could identify the shakes after seeing the ingredients. She also pointed out that a lot of people are struggling with inflammatory conditions and oils and sugars just help to promote that cycle to con-

tinue the pain and infection. “I talk to them about overmedication too as well as exercise. A lot of the solution is diet and nutrition.” Not only can seniors benefit from her diagnosis and treatments, but so can “full-time working moms” who are trying to do everything at home. “It’s about the amount of demands your body has to meet in a day, the physiological stress . . . a lot of people don’t realize they are stressed,” she said. Her talk focused on diet/ nutrition, lifestyle and overmedication. Dr. Bull completed the Naturopathic Medical Program from the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in 2006 and after moving back home to Trent Hills with her family in 2012, she eventually decided to start her own clinic called Your Family Naturopath which is located in Campbellford.

Emerald Ash Borer gaining ground in Ontario and create public awareness.” Jim Alyea asked what were the implications of finding it on a woodlot. Ewa said as of April 1 all of Southern Ontario would be a regulated area. “Don’t panic,” she said. Alyea said he has a lot of white ash on his land and the cost of injection would be too much. Ewa agreed it is not feasible for woodlot owners to inject all their ash trees. Alyea commented that in the ‘50s there was Dutch

Elm disease which killed a lot of elm trees. “The elm started to come back again, then it would die again,” he said. “I’m surprised it grew.” Ewa said the disease was in the environment and trees would grow up to 20 metres before they showed Ewa Bednarczuk talks to the LTC board about the spread of emerald ash borer in Ontario. Photo: Kate Everson symptoms. She said the emerald ash borer insecticide is made from a nut of a tropical tree in India. CAO Glenda Rodgers suggested Ewa make presentations at local municipal councils to make people aware.

R0012448555

News - Quinte West – Ewa Bednarczuk, ecology and stewardship specialist, made a presentation to the Lower Trent Conservation board December 12 on Preparing for the Emerald Ash Borer. “This is an ecological disaster,” she said, describing how the tiny iridescent beetle creates tunnels in the bark of ash trees, cutting off food and water so the tree dies. “The first symptoms are that the top of the tree dies first,” she added. She noted that ash is an important timber for use in flooring and other things. The emerald ash borer probably arrived in Canada on a wooden pallet overseas and is spread in firewood. She urged people to buy wood locally and burn it on the site. “Become informed,” she said. “Consider tree removal or injections. Call the hotline for the MNR.” She said there is no doubt the invasive species is coming soon to a woodlot near you. “Roseneath has confirmed it this year,” she said. “Ash trees will die.” She urged municipalities to become proactive. Take a tree inventory, map the ash trees, their size and health. Look for signs of the emerald ash borer, its larvae in the bark. Plant trees to replace the ash with a mix of natural species. Protect important shade trees in parks and tourist destinations with injections of insecticide TreeAzin. Consider removing heavily infected trees. The cost for treatment is $5 to $7 per centimetre, so a tree could cost $250 to $350 to treat over two years. Removal could cost $1,200 to dig out the stump and replace the tree. “It’s cheaper to remove the ash if it’s not completely infected,” she said. Municipalities also have to prepare a disposal facility and plan how to process the trees, either in woodchips or pellets. Ewa said public awareness is important and there should be a webpage and social media as well as workshops and a hotline. “So far there have been no great infestations in our area,” she said. “We have the advantage of time, some warning. We can have plans in place

across Ontario by members of Law Enforcement agencies from across the province. More than $42 million was raised worldwide in 2012 as part of the torch run, and in Ontario the run has contributed over $19 million since the first event in 1986. Funds from the

torch run are used to raise funds and public awareness for Special Olympics Ontario, to involve Law Enforcement personnel in a community-based, province-wide programs and to set up community partnerships with sponsors, Special Olympics volunteers and local supporters who all have a desire to help athletes.

News – Northumberland – Northumberland OPP report area residents are being asked to provide personal information and to send money to people saying they are acting on behalf of the federal government. A person identifying himself as Kingsley Adams stated in a letter to one resident that a family member had recently died and he wanted to send money to the person. He asked for financial information to carry out the transfer of funds. In another attempt at fraud, supposedly from FINTRAC (Financial Transactions and Reports Analysis Centre of Canada), a letter concerned a petition against the federal government which asked for names, addresses and phone numbers of anyone who signed it. “It is ALWAYS in your best interest to not give anyone personal information about yourself or your family as well as any financial information,” police said in a news release. The OPP advise anyone who is asked to provide information by an apparent fraudster to call the Canadian Anti-fraud Centre, 1-888-495-8501.

Antwerp shines bright like a diamond Antwerp shines bright like a diamond

Lifestyles - Belgium’s Antwerp is a major diamond centre and has played a very significant role in the diamond industry since the 15th century. Today, its diamond district trades about 85% of the world’s rough diamonds, 50% of cut diamonds, and 40% of industrial diamonds. Antwerp is said to have the “best diamond cutters in the world” – and the highest international mark of approval for a polished diamond is the “Cut in Antwerp” label. After the skilled craftsmanship has been completed in this Belgian city, the diamonds are exported worldwide. I visited Antwerp’s diamond district, which is located right in the heart of the city, in what’s often referred to as the “Diamond Square Mile”. The area has a plethora of diamond shops, diamond brokers, diamond cutters, diamond polishers,

diamond exchanges, special diamond banks, and diamond companies. Diamonds rule here! As I wandered through the Diamond Square Mile, I noticed that there were many Hasidic Jews working here, primarily men with long black curls and donned in the traditional long black coat and hat. I even observed one sitting on a bicycle, right in front of a bank, and making what I presumed was a business call relating to diamonds. After all, I learned that it was Hasidic Jews who, many years ago, had set up the Diamond Club of Antwerp, the city’s first trading exchange that dealt mainly with the wholesaling of cut stones. I visited both this exchange and the Antwerp Diamond Ring (“Antwerpsche Diamantkring”), which was the first trade exchange that was set up here to deal exclusively with rough, uncut diamonds. In addition to these diamond exchanges, I also checked

out Diamondland, Antwerp’s largest diamond show room, where I could watch craftsmen at work. I soon learned that diamond quality is determined by “the four Cs”: the diamond’s cut, colour, clarity, and carat. The larger, clearer, and whiter the gemstone, the more valuable it is. The Antwerp Diamond Jeweler Association (ADJA) has been created to protect the jewelry buyer, guaranteeing the quality. Therefore, it’s best to shop at stores recommended by the ADJA, for the diamonds will be genuine in these establishments. Some of these diamond sellers have even teamed up with certain Antwerp hotels – and offer a free night’s stay for romantic couples who are coming to Antwerp to purchase a diamond ring. Antwerp’s diamond district is located very near its Central Station, and since I arrived there by train, my first look at the city’s architecture was in this magnificent, cathedral-like structure, with its high marble columns and long, elegant staircases. A short walk from this station led me right into the Diamond Square Mile. When I now hear that previously popular Rihanna song about shining “Bright Like a Diamond”, I’m reminded of Antwerp’s diamond district, with its plethora of jewelry shops and real, shining diamonds. However, when I think back to my Antwerp visit, I’m also reminded of the city’s many other ‘diamonds’, too, for I discovered that this beautiful city had far more ‘gems’ than merely the ones located in its diamond district. Some of these not-to-bemissed attractions include the Farmers’ Tower (Europe’s first skyscraper), the Cathedral of Our Lady (the highest Gothic building in the country, with its impressive collection of major art works), Rubenshuis (where the artist created many of his masterpieces), the MAS (a towering museum with a spectacular view of the city from the top), the Festival Hall (for shopping in style), the Butchers’ Hall (a former meat market that’s now a music museum), the Antwerp Zoo (located next to Central Station and dating back to 1843), Aquatopia (the large aquarium near the zoo), the Flanders Opera (housed in a beautiful neo-baroque building), Het Steen ( a mediaeval fortress on the bank of the Scheldt River), the Grote Markt (in the heart of the Old City, with its City Hall and severed hand statue), the Red Star Line Museum (depicting

the story of migrants who left Europe from here for ‘the promised land’), and the restored warehouses along the waterfront (now converted to boutiques and restaurants). As a tourist destination, Antwerp does, indeed, shine bright like a diamond. For More Information: www.visitflanders.us

LIFESTYLES

Preserve the tree, preserve yourself Dan Clost Lifestyles - In the olden days, our tree came into the house during Christmas week, freshly cut, and was taken out shortly after New Year’s Day: it was inside for less than two weeks. Today, folks bring their trees in as early as the last week in November and set them outside around the second week in January. Certainly, not all trees are created equal and some turn to tinder faster than others, even within the same species. For example, two seemingly identical Balsam Firs can have a significantly

different lifespan. Perhaps one tree was tucked inside the shipping bundle and the other was on the outside of the tractor trailer load as it travelled from Northern Ontario or Nova Scotia. One can easily last several weeks inside the home, the other may leave its needles in the car trunk. (By the way, Gentle Reader, any reputable seller will replace such a tree immediately. Caveat emptor, buyer beware, is not an option; it is a shared responsibility.) Here is a sobering thought: Christmas tree fires show the highest increase of 50% on Dec 24, 61% on the 25th and 43% on the 26th; of these, one in nine have a fatality and almost all of those deaths occur somewhere else in the home; not in the room where the fire starts. Obviously you want to start with the freshest tree possible. You should know most commercially available trees are harvested in mid-November and some

even before that. Look for needles on the branches, not those on the ground as many species, especially spruce, will have quite a few old, dead needles on the inside. Run your hands along the stems, grasp strongly, and see what happens. Pines tend to collect quite a bit of “straw” on the inner stems so it is a good idea to reach in and clean them out. The best thing you can do to increase longevity is to keep it hydrated. When you get the tree home, put it into water as soon as you can. Make sure you cut off between half and one full inch off of the butt. The stand should fit the tree not the other way round. Shaving off the sides actually strips away the “arteries” and decreases the ability of the tree to take up water. The National Christmas Tree Association says trees will need one quart of water per inch of stem diameter, so a four inch stem needs a stand that

holds four quarts (one gallon) or just a titch over four, five litres. That will be soaked up within the first 24 hours. So, if your stand doesn’t hold enough, you need to check the reservoir more often than once a day. Once the tree has rehydrated itself, water consumption will slow down but you must stay on top of the situation. Make it easy to check, provide yourself with clear access to the reservoir. If you do find that your tree will be near a vent, cover up the vent. If you can’t cover up the vent, then put the tree somewhere else. Should you use a preservative? Laval University folks have discovered the chemical that causes needle drop. They are working on a preventative. Until then, clean tap water is the best. Some preservatives- e.g. two top selling brands in the U.S., have been discontinued because they actually increased needle loss. GR, just because some marketing

Follow example set by Three Wise Men Lifestyles - Right now, many men are The gift, then, must be good.

The Wise Men, however, were not merely gift toters. They also were wise because they were on the look out for danger, avoiding the homicidal King Herod and protecting Mary and Jesus in the process. This may not be a very women’s lib type thing to say, but I think “protecting your brood” comes right after “it’s the man’s job to kill the bugs” in the official marriage rule book. Now, men must understand that many dangers in a woman’s life are of her own making. Women naturally expand to fill the void—and no, I’m not 1 referring to the lady who required that scale. If there is work to be done, and no one to do it, women naturally step in. That is why we are chronically

exhausted and grumpy. Men can protect women by helping us do some of that work, and by gently helping us see when we’re getting out of control. Remember, though, that the preferred method of conveying such nuggets of wisdom is to do so while handing us chocolate truffles and running that bubble bath. Finally, the wise men knew that sometimes you have to take a journey to find something truly important. I don’t mean heading down to Home Depot to get the latest power tool; I mean going places you wouldn’t normally venture. Maybe you need to take a journey this Christmas season; a journey back to that place in your heart where you first fell in love. Maybe you need to journey to church, to a marriage counselor, to more of your children’s pageants. Maybe you need to journey to a place of forgiveness. Maybe you need to take a journey to a place where you can be free to say “I love you”, “I cherish you”, “I need you”, or to find an answer to the question, “what am I here for?” Seek out that which is important this season.

year round facility and therefore the chances of someone being there during the spring when the flood risks are highest, were slim. He also said that certain measures could be built into the structure which would have no basement or crawl space and could be constructed on piers. He described the lot as being tiered, saying he could move the building to the higher ground. He commented, “I am willing to cooperate with the Board in whatever recommendations they may make...”  Chair Barry Rand asked Richardson what the Board’s options were and was told that if the application were to be approved, there would have to be very clear and concise reasons for that decision. Another option was for deferral of a decision, but as she explained, in that case, the issues that are raised would still be there, “and we will find ourselves back here at the end of the day.” A great deal of discussion and conversation around the table followed, with input from several Board members one of whom, Ron Gerow, suggested there might be some engineering options which “could be put on the table for further consideration... to see how they are applicable to the process that we have to work within.” Following further input from others and an indication from the engineer that the potential impact from flooding could be managed and another from the property owner that he would be willing to make alterations to the plan to mitigate the risk, Gerow proposed a motion. It stated, “that we defer the de-

cision (in order) to allow the applicant an opportunity to modify and amend at his will the application based on the discussion here today.”  The motion passed with thanks from the Chair “for a good and open discussion.” The matter will again appear on the February 20 agenda. The meeting continued after a break, with Richardson providing a generic regulations report, saying that another permit had been approved while one was on hold and two others awaiting approval. With regard to the access road to Fire Route 28 located in Havelock-Belmont-Methuen, letters have been sent to the landowner and others saying that CVCA would accept an application for the installation of a culvert and up to a foot of fill to be placed along the access road to raise it to summer elevation.  A 20 minute lunch break was followed by the 2014 budget deliberations with CVCA General Manager Tim Pidduck reminding that during the last meeting he had been directed ensure that the Long Range Plan objectives of a six percent increase, were met. This required shaving .33 percent from the figures, which Pidduck managed to do. He mentioned a figure of $10,000 in the 2013 budget under the heading of Flood Management - Unfunded Liabilities which had not been used, and could therefore be identified as surplus “to be held in reserve and used in the 2014 budget to cover the Flood Management - Unfunded Liabilities rather than raising levies to once again

cover the potential expense.” His report continued, “This enables the levy to be reduced by $10,000. Once the .33 percent overage ($1282) was taken into consideration, adjustments were made to the capital budget allowing a contribution of $8,718 to capital.” Another item raised by Pidduck was the engineering cost for 2014 to have anchors installed at Wollaston and Belmont dams. The original estimate which was made in 2005, was for $3000 per anchor, a figure which has since more than doubled to $6700. Since the dam safety guidelines which were updated in 2011, have been relaxed, Pidduck feels the number of anchors required could be reduced, potentially installing one anchor per pier. He suggested that in 2014, perhaps one or other of the dams could be chosen to have the work done. Discussion of budget matters continued with Gerow indicating that his council would not support a six percent increase, a statement which was echoed by Sandy Fraser of Marmora and Lake. A motion was made, and passed in a recorded vote that the draft budget be changed to reflect the contingency fund and forwarded to the municipalities for comment. The matter of having Quinte Conservation involved in a service agreement with CVCA, which was turned down during a well attended meeting held in the Marmora Town Hall on October 25, arose again with Gerow saying that his council unanimously felt there was merit in the proposal but that it hadn’t been completed. It was suggested by the Chair that perhaps a motion relating to the issue could be drafted for the next meeting. The new CVCA logo, created with input from staff, and featuring a large and graceful crow flying against a field of blue water and green land was unveiled to unanimous approval. One of the final items to take place was the announcement that the CVCA minutes would be posted on line in draft form within two weeks, or possibly one, of each meeting.

Back to the future with Hula Hoop fun By Bill Freeman

Lifestyles - Hastings – It’s back to the future for a group of women in Hastings who are getting their exercise groove using good old-fashioned hula hoops which conjure up images of childhood and school playground fun. While the commercial rage

for hula hoops had its hey-day during the late 1950s and 1960s the art and sport of “hooping” has never really disappeared finding new adherents in successive generations and renewed interest from earlier hoopers who appreciate the fitness element the nostalgic toy can provide.

“I do it as a flow movement so it’s more like a dance,” says instructor Rebecca Hardy of Dartford. “It’s just a matter of expressing yourself with the hoop as your partner. It’s basically the same as the kid’s toy but it’s expanded into dance.” Hardy has been a hula hoop instructor since last winter when she led an adult and children’s class at the Campbellford Resource Centre. “It seemed like everyone was having a lot of fun which is what it’s all about,” she said. The Hastings class meets Friday afternoons (2 p.m.) at the Civic Centre on a drop-in-when-you-can basis. They’ve made their own hula hoops out of basic plumbing tubing which is commonly used for modern hoops. They are bigger and heavier than the original toy hoops. “You can make your own so you can get the right size,” says Hardy. The heavier hoops are easier to use, she says, “then you can work your way on to the smaller ones.” “You can start at your own pace,” Hardy stressed. “It’s a dance so everybody’s got their own style so they’re going to adapt it to whatever’s right for them. It’s a full body workout, you get everything involved.” Belly dancing instructor Kirsten Boyd Please see “Exercise” on page B9

loves the hula hoop. “It fits in really well with belly dancing in addition to what we already do,” Boyd said. “It increases our flexibility.” “It’s exercise, it’s a great workout,” says Lynda of Hastings.

“I had them on every day when I was a young kid. After school we had the hoops going all the time.” For the record, the hula hoop was inducted into the National Toy Hall of Fame in Rochester, New York in 1999.

Angela Hayden Adopt-a-Family project helps families in need away this year,â&#x20AC;? noted Angela Hayden Adopt-a-Family committee member WO Sandy Driscoll on Dec. 12. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good thing,â&#x20AC;? quickly added committee member Elizabeth Hayden. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a really, really good thing and the families in need are really well looked after.â&#x20AC;? The news is good because it means there are fewer families in need this year, according to WO Driscoll.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Although we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get as many families as we did in the past, this to me is a good sign that there are less people in trouble this year,â&#x20AC;? she noted. In operation since 1988-89 the Angela Hayden Adopt-a-Family program was established to assist Department of National Defence (DND) families in need at Christmas, WO Driscoll explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As of 2003, one of the founding members passed away and we renamed the program in hon-

our of her and we keep the program running in her memory,â&#x20AC;? she stated. According to Liz Hayden, units on the base adopt a family and provide them with all their gifts for that Christmas. St. Paulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s School supplies all the groceries for those families.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;As of 2003, one of the founding members passed away and we renamed the program in honour of her and we keep the program running in her memoryâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The families who receive those gifts and groceries are those associated with the base, Ms. Hayden noted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They could be Reserve (Force) or they could be civilians, as long as they are associated with the base.â&#x20AC;? As usual, the committee had nothing but praise for the base units and students at St. Paulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s for their efforts this year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;St. Paulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s did a wonderful job of packing the food hampers for us, making it extremely easy to process them at this end and our units were extremely generous and provided for our families extremely well this year,â&#x20AC;? said WO Driscoll.

The Warkworth Community Service Club donated $1,000 to The Salvation Army just in time for the Christmas season. A kettle will be set up in Our Lucky Stars CafĂŠ, one of many kettles set up in Trent Hills at this time of year: From left, Elizabeth Aikenhead, owner of Our Lucky Stars CafĂŠ; Sonny Lennon, president of the Warkworth Community Service Club; Janey leach, family service worker with The Salvation Army; and Captain Steve Manuel of The Salvation Army.

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Quinte West â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Angela Hayden Adopt-a-Family program is one of those good news stories we all like to hear this time of year. While it almost sounds like a sad story at first, organizers of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Adopt-a-Family program at CFB Trenton assure us it is very good news. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were unable to provide a family to every unit that wanted one, so we sadly had to turn units

In most cases, local emergency services will contact the disaster management team, who then send out a two-person team to the scene of the disaster. With them they bring basic comfort items like blankets, personal hygiene products and food and water, and in many cases the team then sets up the affected persons with short-term housing. With a recent Hastings County decision to award the local branch of the Red Cross a three-year contract to provide an after hours emergency service, the disaster management team is looking for new volunteers to help swell Disaster Management volunteers Sharlene Matacheskie, Jocelyn Brethour, their ranks.

News – Belleville – When most people think about a disaster management team, images of tsunamis, hurricanes and tornadoes come to mind, but disasters aren’t always so large in scale. Small disasters occur almost every day across the province, and when they do the Canadian Red Cross is looking for new volunteers to

THANK YOU

40-50 calls per year, but he expects that number to increase come January. “That’s going to result in quite a significant number in terms of the call volume we have,” he said. “We’re going to be pretty busy.” Volunteers generally rotate their schedules so that there is always a team on call 24/7, which currently in the southern part of the service area means that each team takes one week a month. Allester said the team has many members who work full-time jobs or have full family lives, and that they do their best to co-ordinate who is available when. Volunteers are also provided hands-on training in first aid and CPR, with additional training opportunities for those seeking more of a leadership role. “There’s flexibility in the system,” Allester said. In odd cases, the Quinte team is sent to other parts of the world when largescale disasters strike. Most recently, nine volunteers from the Quinte region travelled to Alberta and Ottawa to provide assistance during the Alberta floods – five members heading to the site of the disaster and four others heading to Ottawa to volunteer at a call centre coordinating disaster relief. “I think there’s a lot of opportunity for personal growth, you can learn a lot, you can develop new skills, but if it was only that I don’t think it’s enough,” Allester said. “For me personally, it’s a great sense of satisfaction to be able to help people out.”

To learn more about joining the a disaster management team, go to www.redcross.ca/ BeAHero, phone the Quinte branch at 613-966-0730 ext.110, or send an email to QuinteDMTeam@redcross.ca “I worked for a long time in a big bureaucracy, writing

reports and sometimes you really don’t know if you’ve made a difference,” Allester said. “But here, volunteering with the Red Cross you get a real immediate sense that you made a difference. Maybe just a little difference, but you’ve helped someone.”
