News - Madoc - Shortly before closing time January 6, former reeve of Centre Hastings, Tom Deline, filed his nomination papers in Madoc to reclaim his leadership position lost in the 2010 election. Deline says he believes the general population “would like to see leadership come back ... promotional leadership.” “That’s the type of leadership I like, when we can work with people to develop their property and move forward with projects like road work and private development.” He said the municipality has less than 50 kilometers of gravel roads, which have “not really been attended to” over the past four years. “I’m not knocking this council but that work is not moving forward at the rate planned by the previous council. We need the roads program back in place.” Deline says he has been attending council meetings since his defeat “just to stay abreast of what’s going on”. His political interest in the Village of Madoc and the Municipality has spanned 40 years. He was first elected to Madoc council in 1974 as Councillor and in 1976 as Deputy Reeve. In 1978 he was elected to Reeve and carried that role during the amalgamation period with Huntingdon Township. Please see “another round” page 3

Council pondering cuts, requesting input

News – Stirling – With some serious decisions to make and a pending municipal election slated for later in the year, municipal councillors in Stirling-Rawdon are looking for input before making any formal budgetary commitments in coming weeks. Deputy Mayor Wilfred Shier, who chaired this week’s regular meeting of council in Mayor Rodney Cooney’s absence, welcomed his colleagues, staff and a pair of gallery spectators to the first meeting of the new year noting there is much to be considered in the

wake of a provincial announcement that the municipal funding formula has been changed resulting in a significant shortfall for the municipality. “It’s been a busy year for council and staff,” he said, listing major projects now underway or nearing completion, but added there will be changes as a result of funding cuts. But in order to determine how best to make up for the reduction in provincial support, he says, a public meeting has been scheduled for January 28 at 7 p.m. at the emergency services building across from the municipal offices. Council had already asked department

heads to slash spending by 20 per cent, a figure most agreed would have a notable impact on services, and are also considering the possibility of selling municipally-owned buildings and land in order to reduce costs and increase revenues. The meeting will provide the public with an opportunity for input, Shier says, while councillors will be available to discuss municipal services, related costs and options available. Among the services being scrutinized by council are road maintenance, policing, fire protection, the public library, parks and recreation and administration.

Deputy Mayor Shier also noted that applications are now available at the municipal offices for anyone interested in running for a council seat in the fall election, encouraging residents to give the idea some consideration. Shier and councillors Bob Mullin and Grant Hagerman say they remain undecided whether or not they will be seeking a second term, noting the election is still a long way off, while the only incumbent councillor at the last election, Jeremy Solmes, has committed to running again in the fall.

Public Consultation to precede chief selection

By Richard Turtle

News – Stirling – On the lookout for a new police chief, the Stirling-Rawdon Police Services Board (PSB) has named an interim replacement and scheduled a public meeting in order to gather input prior to the interviewing and hiring process. The PSB announced late last year that it would be seeking a new chief as of January 1, 2014 due to the expiry of the existing contract with Brian Foley. And before making a final decision on a permanent replacement, local residents will have an opportunity to voice concerns at a public consultation on January 21, at 6:30 p.m. in the StirlingRawdon Police Service EOC Room at 2529 Stirling-Marmora Rd. In a recent press release, the board announced the naming of an interim police chief until a permanent replacement can be found. OPP Staff Sergeant Christina Reive has been appointed interim chief of the StirlingRawdon Police Service as of January 1. “The board is grateful to the OPP and Staff Sergeant Reive for their willingness to assist in this time of transition,” said board chair Tara Dier. Further information regarding the process to select a new chief will be made available when details are finalized. The next regularly scheduled meeting for the PSB is January 13, at 7 p.m. in the emergency service building. Speaking at the most recent meeting of Stirling-Rawdon council, Deputy Mayor and PSB member Wilfred Shier responded to a question from the gallery saying only that the meeting offered an opportunity for pubic input but provided few other details. Shier also said he was unable to comment on Foley’s status with the department.

First candidate declares in Centre Hastings By Diane Sherman

News - Madoc - Centre Hastings resident Bob Hadley is the first candidate to file nomination papers for the October 27 municipal election. He was at the municipal office in Madoc early January 2, waiting for the doors to open. In a printed news release Hadley said “...it’s a little crazy to file so early, but, I wanted to make a point... I am not running ‘against’ anyone else, since there is nobody else in the race yet. I am running to serve Centre Hastings.” Hadley settled permanently on Moira Lake with his wife Linda in 2009 after working thirty-four years with Agri-

Food Canada in various roles of the federal agency. “My whole career has been about public service and I feel I have a lot to bring to Centre Hastings where we have chosen to retire.” Hadley grew up in Trenton, graduated from Guelph University in 1975 and over the years was posted in Kitchener, Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Regina, Edmonton and Ottawa. He says his work involved many skills pertinent to municipal management. “Procurement is one of those skills. Procurement of equipment and hiring personnel seems to be an issue which distracts from bigger issues. I believe

I could contribute to resolve those policies and procedures so staff can get on with doing the bigger things in the municipality.” Hadley started coming to council meetings shortly after the last election. He said he had heard various comments “on the street” and wanted to get to know more. He has brought delegations before council and been publicly outspoken on numerous issues. “I’m running now because I feel I can offer positive, constructive input to move the community forward.” He said he would like to see current policies clarified and council work toward better and more shared services.

Council pondering cuts, requesting input

Continued from page 1

The Stirling-Rawdon Police Services Board has also announced its intention to hold a public consultation on Tuesday, Jan. 21, at 6:30 p.m. in the Stirling-Rawdon Police Service EOC room to obtain input regarding the hiring of the new police chief. The transition to clear plastic garbage bags has been a relatively painless one, Shier told council, placing the credit in the hands of cooperative residents who overwhelmingly complied with the

In order to extend the life of a pair of municipal landfill sites, only clear bags with an affixed tag, containing household waste and non-recyclables, will be picked up. Mixed waste must either be sorted or disposed of at the landfill at a cost of $10 per bag. Council also welcomed Pierce Animal Control as the new animal control service for the municipality. Animal control calls can now be made to 613-966-4483. Hastings Stewardship Council’s Community Trees Program will be returning to Stirling-Rawdon in the spring after councillors agreed to purchase $250 worth of seedlings to be made available to local residents. Citing the benefits of the program as well as recent ice storm damage, council agreed to once again participate in the annual program.

“If properly done we can keep taxes down and still maintain our own services like funding of the medical centre and management of the arena.” Hadley says he won’t start knocking on doors until the spring, but, will be available for voters to contact by phone or email : 613-473-3152 or bobhadley4council@gmail.com, Centre Hastings resident, Bob Hadley, declared he is running for municipal election.

Former reeve coming back for another round

Continued from page 1

After a three-year term out of office he was re-elected in 1984 and held his position as reeve until he was defeated by Owen Ketcheson in 2010. Deline expects the municipality can move into 2015 with “little or no tax increase.” “I believe we can carry on with virtually no tax increase other than the cost of inflation or less.” He maintains the municipality was left in “pretty good shape” by his former council. He says he didn’t plan on declaring his nomination this early, “I was encouraged by supporters to declare early, so it’s done. We’ll see how it goes.” Deline, who was born and raised in Madoc, said, “Centre Hastings really is the best darn place to live.” He noted numerous assets of agriculture, recreation, services, tourism and management. “This is a great place to raise a family or retire. I love my community and I’m willing to work for it.”

Former reeve Tom Deline has declared he will run again for leadership of Centre Hastings. Deline filed his nomination papers January 6 for the October municipal election. Photo: Diane Sherman

News - Belleville - 2014 may only be less than two weeks old, but rumours are already flying about possible candidates in the upcoming City of Belleville municipal election, and on Monday, current Belleville Mayor Neil Ellis confirmed that he will not be seeking re-election in 2014. “In 2014, I will not be seeking re-election for the mayor’s seat,” Ellis told the Belleville News. “Right now I’m putting my name forward to run in the federal Liberal nomination process in the Bay of Quinte riding.” Ellis has served as mayor for the past two terms, initially being elected in 2006 after ousting former Belleville city mayor Mary Ann Sills. Ellis said the main motivation for leaving the mayor’s seat to run for the federal liberal nomination in the Bay of Quinte riding was his desire

to continue addressing the infrastructure gap in municipalities across Canada, an issue he tackled first-hand with the Build Belleville project, and that the issue figures to be a major platform for candidates in the upcoming election. “One of the big challenges for the city has been infrastructure,” Ellis said. “Under my leadership, council has endorsed a plan thats addressed about one third of our infrastructure gap... but having said that, that gap will widen, and there has to be a plan to fix the rest of it over the next five to ten years. The upper government has to get us sustainable funding for infrastructure, that’s what’s most important to municipalities right now.” Addressing a recent report that he would consider running for mayor again should no current member of council put their names forward for the position, Ellis said, “That’s not going to happen.” El-

Legion President Marie Gordon, said the event had been planned for those who didn’t want to be out driving on New Year’s Eve, explaining, “They can have their gathering with friends here and be home early.” Others, who wanted to ring in the New Year in a traditional way arrived at the Legion later in the evening for a country jam session and buffet which stretched from 8 to the magic hour of midnight.

lis said no less than five councillors had already approached him about the possibility of running for the mayor’s seat, and confirmed councillor Jack Miller as one potential candidate. Ellis added that should his Liberal bid be unsuccessful he has offers to join the private sector. “I’ve done two terms as mayor, and when I look over the next four years with passing Build Belleville and having a five-year capital plan moving forward, the next council is going to be a custodial council,” Ellis said. “The capital projects have passed... Build Belleville is a strategy to fix these infrastructure problems. This council has done a lot of lifting for the next group and figured out how to solve the problems.” Ellis also addressed potential concerns with the timing of his move, as construction is set to begin on the $91.5 million Build Belleville project this summer. “Build Belleville has been passed, 8-1 on council... if somebody runs on stopping Build Belleville and they’re successful, then I guess Build Belleville wasn’t the project that I thought it was,” Ellis said. “The strategy of not doing things and letting the roads fall apart and letting the bridges fall down... that’s a strategy that’s probably not going to be welcomed by the taxpayer.”

Rowe first to declare intent for re-election News - Madoc Township - Randy Rowe has been a member of Madoc Township municipal council for two terms. He has declared he will seek re-election. Though he won’t be knocking on doors until the good weather comes around, Rowe said, “I wanted to get my name in early. It gives me the legal right to start campaigning.â€? He declared his nomination when ofďŹ ces opened the second day of January. Rowe says he takes his role as councillor seriously. “I am a man of integrity, I work for residents the same as I’d work for myself and family.â€? He says he feels he has made him-

self readily available to hear from community members and take their concerns to council. “I admit we can’t please everyone, and we each make mistakes, but I am honest and willing to admit when I’m wrong.� Rowe says one of his personal visions for 2014 is development at the Bonjour Boulevard complex. “We have had a proposal for construction of a strip mall, and both the township and Centre Hastings have given the go ahead though we haven’t heard back yet.� He also says road work throughout the municipality is an ongoing challenge. “ There are a lot of old county

roads which are more costly to repair.â€? He said the Deloro Road is a priority this year. “We try to do as much as we can with the ďŹ nances we have.â€? He says though people don’t want tax hikes, they want services, “..like anything else the cost of everything keeps going up, so there has to be a bit of an increase.â€? Concerning shared services with Centre Hastings, Rowe says Madoc Township is holding their share of the original agreement for the Tri-Area Medical Centre. “We just can’t agree with everything brought before us. It wouldn’t be good business sense to go beyond our means.â€? He said, “We strive to be good

Radon levels return to normal at Belleville school

By Steve Jessel

News - After a pre-holiday scare at a local elementary school regarding abnormally high levels of radon in the building, new tests taken over the holidays have conďŹ rmed that actions taken by school and board staff have been successful in dropping radon levels to below the provincial limit. The Hastings and Prince Edward School Board and staff at Sir Winston Churchill Public School in Belleville were notiďŹ ed late in the afternoon on December 18 that the school building, located at 301 Macdonald Avenue in Belleville had elevated levels of radon in several areas throughout the school, including classrooms. The building is occupied by Kindergarten and Grade 1 students and employees from Harry J. Clarke Public School, and is also the site of the Early Years Program provided by Family Space. After third-party testing at the school found elevated levels of radon, school board ofďŹ cials immediately consulted with environmental specialists, the Ministry of Labour, the Hastings & Prince Edward Counties

Health Unit and the Public Services Health & Safety Association. “We [now] know that ventilation is certainly a way to mitigate it,â€? said school Superintendant Colleen DeMille, when asked why levels were so high. “When we did the short-term testing, that’s when we learned about making sure all the exhaust fans are always running, that there’s air ow through the building, to make sure any cracks in oor sealed, and when we took those measures immediately we found excellent results .â€? Radon is a radioactive gas that is formed naturally by the breakdown of uranium in soil, rock and water, according to Health Canada. As a gas, radon is slowly released from the ground, water, and some building materials that contain very small amounts of uranium, such as concrete and bricks. When radon is released from the ground outside, it mixes with fresh air and gets diluted resulting in concentrations too low to be of concern, however, when radon enters an enclosed space, such as a house or basement, it can accumulate to high

Rowe said development of the commercial complex at Highways 62 and 7 will be an important source of tax income. “That is a priority to develop and we are hoping there will be movement there this year.� Madoc Township Councillor Randy Rowe declared January 2 he will seek a third term in office.

ments that have been made in the Belleville and surrounding area through the Eastern Ontario Development Fund. Companies like Proctor and Gamble Inc., Vantage Foods, and Autosystems have all received grants that have helped create jobs and grow our regional economy. This is even more surprising given that Smith was present for an announcement in November by Sigma Stretch Film of Canada Co. that it was adding a new production line while creating 10 new jobs and retaining 123 existing jobs in Belleville with support from the Eastern Ontario Development Fund. Smith also links the decision by Heinz and Kellogg’s to close plants in Ontario directly to the negative impact of legislation on Ontario’s economy. Obviously Smith has chosen to ignore the rationale

presented by the companies themselves and a complex array of factors including our still-elevated currency, which has put Ontario’s manufacturing industry at a competitive disadvantage. A recent Globe and Mail article on the closing of the Kellogg’s plant in London started with this headline: Kellogg’s Ontario plant closing a casualty of changing tastes. Smith has also overlooked the important investment made by the Ontario government in both Kellogg plants including the one here in Belleville. Perhaps Smith is suggesting we should not be making these investments in the local economy. Our economic plan is also revealing how different things would be under the PCs. Ontario does not need to choose between growing the economy

News – The Alzheimer Society of Belleville, Hastings, and Quinte has a busy month ahead of it, as in 2014 the Society will be hosting not one, not two, but three separate Walk For Memories fundraising events, including the Society’s first foray into Trenton for the annual fundraising event. “The population of seniors in Trenton and Brighton is fairly significant, and so we’re seeing a lot of people in the community living with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias,” said Society fund development co-ordinator Hannah Brown. “We wanted to provide them an opportunity to get together, and acknowledge and support other people living in the community with this disease.” The three events will take place from January 18-26

this year, beginning with the fourth edition of the Bancroft Walk for Memories taking place at North Hastings High School from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on January 18. Next, the walk heads to Trenton and the YMCA for the first time on January 19 from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., before the final Belleville event takes place at Bay View Mall on January 26 from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Brown said more than 115 people attended the event in Belleville last year, and between Bancroft and Belleville the walk raised a total of $65,000 in 2013. As with many non-profit organizations, the Alzheimer’s Society receives only nominal funding from the Canadian government. “Less than 25 per cent of budget is funded by the government,” Brown said “We rely very heavily on these fundraising events to really

and protecting the services on which people rely. We can and must do both. We know where slashing wildly will take us because we saw the aftermath when we took office in 2003. More than eight years of Conservative governments had left us with doctor shortages, overcrowded classrooms, brownouts and crumbling highways.

This approach keeps us on track to balance the budget because jobs and growth is the surest, fairest path to higher revenues.

make it possible for us to continue providing programs and services throughout the community.” Currently, the Alzheimer’s Society offers a range of educational and support programs throughout the region, including support groups in Belleville, Brighton, Madoc, Quinte West, Stirling, Tweed, and Bancroft. Brown said all funds raised from the walk stay within the community to help support those programs and also expand services in Trenton and Brighton. Brown said one in ten people over the age of 65 currently live with Alzheimer’s or another dementia, and with baby boomers rapidly aging in the region that number is only expected to rise. “Sometimes it progresses to a situation where it’s more about supporting the family and making sure they know how to care for their loved one the best they can, and

making sure they’re getting the support they need,” she said. “As their loved one is changing and showing behaviour that they never normally saw before, things they can say can seem unusual or even hurtful, and it’s important for people to understand that this isn’t their loved one talking, it’s the disease. This can be upsetting and difficult...hearing from other people who have gone through that really helps them not feel isolated and alone.” Pledge forms can either be found online at www.walkformemories.ca, or can be picked up in person in Belleville at the Society offices in Bay View Mall, in Trenton at the Trenton YMCA, or at the Brighton municipal offices. Any person who raises more than $1,500 in pledges this year will be entered into a draw for two tickets to anywhere WestJet flies.

This letter is in response to an article last week that featured MPP Todd Smith attacking the economic record of the Ontario Liberal government. As the nominated Liberal candidate for PEH, I would like to correct the record on a number of Todd Smith’s claims. Despite what MPP Smith stated, our government continues to attract businesses and support their growth. That’s

Supervolcanoes: Another thing to worry about

Editorial - The good thing about volcanoes is that you know where they are. If you don’t want to get hurt, just stay away from them. The bad thing about supervolcanoes is that you may know where they are, but there’s no getting away from them. They only blow up very rarely, but when they do, the whole world is affected. They can cover an entire continent with ash, and lower temperatures sharply worldwide for years. Gwynne Dyer “This is something that, as a species, we will eventually have to deal with. It will happen in future,” said Dr. Wim Malfait of ETH Zurich (the Swiss Federal institute of Technology) , lead author of a recent paper in “Nature Geoscience” that says supervolcano eruptions don’t even need an earthquake as a trigger. “You could compare it to an asteroid impact,” he says. “The risk at any given time is small, but when it happens the consequences will be catastrophic.” I know you already have enough to worry about, what with climate change and asteroid strikes and the like, but I’m afraid there’s more. Volcanoes and supervolcanoes both involve magma (molten rock deep underground) that breaks through to the surface, but in practice they are quite different. Volcanoes gradually build themselves into mountains by repeated, relatively modest eruptions of lava. Supervolcanoes are a single massive explosion of magma rising to the surface over a huge area, and blasting at least a thousand cubic km. of ash into the atmosphere. How massive? The largest recent volcanic eruption was Mount Pinatubo in the Philippines, which blew about ten cubic km. of ash and gas into the upper atmosphere in 1991. The result was a 0.4 degree C drop in average global temperature for a year or so. But the eruption of the Yellowstone supervolcano 640,000 years ago was a hundred times as big. It covered the entire North American continent with ash –

and just like an asteroid strike, it threw massive amounts of dust and ash into the stratosphere, where it stayed for years, blocking out much of the sunlight. (It doesn’t rain in the stratosphere, so the debris stays there for a long time.) As a result the average global temperature fell by as much as 10 degrees C for a number of years. It was temporary, but while it lasted there was a steep fall in the amount of plant material growing on the planet, and a corresponding collapse in animal populations as well. Not mass extinctions, so far as we can tell, and fairly soon the plant and animal species repopulated their former habitats, but it certainly spoiled the party for the equivalent of several human generations. How many people would die if such a catastrophe happened now? It is unlikely that even half of the world’s seven billion people would survive two or three years of severe hunger, and civilization itself would take a terrible beating. Nor is there anything useful you can do to prepare for such a catastrophe, unless you are able to stockpile two or three years’ worth of food for the entire world. At the moment, our global food reserve will feed the population for only three or four months, so that is not likely to happen. If it does not, then we just have to hope that the calamity doesn’t happen – knowing that we probably will not have much warning if it does. What Dr. Malfait’s team discovered is that the detonation of a supervolcano is entirely dependent on the temperature of the liquid rock in the underground chamber. As it gets hotter, it gets less dense than the solid rock around it. At this point, it will behave just like an air-filled balloon or football that is held underwater, trying to pop up to the surface. Eventually, the magma forces its way to the surface over an area of hundreds of square kilometres, expands and explodes. On average, such an explosion only happens once every hundred thousand years, but in practice it could happen at any time, with as little as a few weeks warning. Just thought you’d like to know. Sleep well.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

I’m glad the holidays are over Dear Editor, Finally the holiday season is over and we can get on with our lives. I’m tired of charity television commercials giving me a guilt complex, our hockey teams getting their butts kicked in world tournaments, and political end of the year interviews. I’m tired of Mike Holmes making me feel small because two young boys in Africa don’t have parents to take care of them, of athletes begging me for $20 to pay for a brick to build a school in Kenya, or the goat with the voice of a Shakespearian actor wanting me to donate $75 to buy other goats. I think the majority of us have charities that we support at this time of year and we don’t need organizations like the Christian Children’s Fund giving us a guilt complex by beaming pictures of sad looking African children into our living rooms. All the money those charities are paying for prime time advertising would probably pay for the good works that they are begging us to do. I’m tired of watching our hockey players getting their butts waxed because, as Don Cherry says, we are sending politically correct teams to these tournaments and not necessarily our

best players. Surely our Olympic experience over the years has taught us that we have to send our very best if we want to win. If we can’t send our very best then why even go? Most of all, I’m tired of the year-end interviews with politicians trying to convince me that they want to make things better for Canada and the world and how they have something to contribute and pay back their fellow Canadians. I watched the Sunday morning political programs this morning before writing this column. Like most of the party leaders, Harper didn’t have the moral fortitude to face the nation and sat there and mouthed a lot of promises to the electorate. What they didn’t say is what they really meant; just give me the power I’m entitled to and want. So I’m really glad the holiday season has come and gone. I just hope that someday soon we get back to celebrating what, in my view, is the real reason for the season . . . to take care of our own, to do what’s right for all, and to beat the stuffing out of international hockey teams.

Resolutions are for other people By Terry Bush Editorial - Did I make any New Year’s resolutions this year? Well they never seem to work out anyway so what’s the point of going out on a limb and making a bunch, one or any at all. Most of us still have resolutions kicking around from 15 years ago we haven’t gotten around to fulfilling, let alone thinking about new ones. I’d have to live to 105 like Stirling’s bon vivant Alice Heasman just to finish up my current resolution list let alone my bucket list. So with the pressure off myself, I’m more than willing to help out others by telling them what they should do in 2014. Kathleen Wynne and the Ontario Liberals ... where does one start? Stop being ridiculous! When people show up in BMWs to collect free grocery cards available after the ice storm, there’s a problem with the administration of your program. And to make matters worse, you made yourself look like an ass going door-to-door handing out cards. Kathleen, we all know what the term “photo op” means and yours was pretty blatant. Maybe you should just stick to running. I hear you enjoy that. Better yet, get yourself and members of your party some hamster wheels, and generate some free green energy for us to make up for your nutty, pay producers way more than the market rate, green energy programs. This might also deflect some of the obvious ill will your party generated cancelling natural gas plants to get elected. Tim Hudak and the Ontario Conservative Party ... are you taking lessons from the federal Liberals by running figureheads who don’t appeal to the public? Why on earth do you still have the same leader that lost the last election with another one looming in the spring. I hear Michael Ignatieff is looking for work. Well, I didn’t really hear that or anything else regarding the former Liberal candidate but if Jean Charest can go from federal Tory to provincial Liberal, why can’t Mike go from federal Liberal to provincial Conservative? Then again, he didn’t do too well either last time out, did he? Andrea Horwath and the NDP ... we still remember. Might be an idea to give it a rest until the older generation rides off into the sunset. We may be getting a little forgetful in our old age but not that forgetful. Stephen Harper, if your goal was to reach Brian Mulroney’s status, you’ve succeeded. Time to call it a day after a good run and pass the leadership reins to someone else for the next election. Someone else does not mean John Baird. We’ve all seen way too many photos of the man, red-faced and screaming. Time for a kinder, gentler Conservative leader who’s, well, Conservative. Is there any chance good old Bob Stanfield can be cloned in time for the next election? Justin Trudeau ... why did you go and cut all your hair off? Your hair and the pledge to legalize weed were pretty much the whole Liberal platform to date and now that only one plank remains, it must be quite the balancing act. Better stay away from the barber for awhile to regain those Samson locks that appeal to women voters because as much as many people would vote to end of the war on soft drugs, many of those same people won’t get around to voting on election day. Why do today what you can put off until tomorrow, man. Thomas Mulcair, you’re an entertaining guy in the House of Commons and more than a match for Stephen Harper but you ain’t Ed. In fact, even Ed ain’t Ed no more so maybe concentrate on uniting the left. Chances are you won’t do quite as well in La Belle Province this time round so don’t get your hopes up about forming the next government. Maybe you can be the power behind the throne of the united New Liberal Party of Canada if that ever happens.  To Barack Obama and the US. You were given a Nobel Peace Prize not a Nobel Blow Everything to Pieces Prize. Enough with the wedding party drone attacks. You can’t win the hearts and minds of a country when the hearts and minds are spread all over the ground. Take the billions of dollars you give away to Egypt and Israel to play nice and play nice with your own citizens. People are losing their homes; people are working two jobs to get by and your citizens are more than fed up with the wars your federal government keeps getting involved in on behalf of countries with powerful lobby groups. Give your country some affordable universal health care with the money you’ll save and don’t spend it on military bases around the world. Nobody likes a bully. If you do all this and still have a few bucks to spare, help feed some other countries. A full stomach is a great way to win hearts and minds. And to the Toronto Maple Leafs … what can you say that hasn’t already been said. Get some seat warmers in those platinums so it looks like someone actually wants to watch a Leafs game. And then get yourself a team that will make the playoffs. Advertising Consultant Jennet Honey jhoney@theemc.ca 613-966-2034, ext 509

Exhibit features range of techniques, materials By Richard Turtle

Entertainment â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Stirling â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Fern Potter-Tucker has had a lifelong interest in painting and drawing but, she says, it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t until her retirement that she fully developed her talents. And she admits the results are diverse, often coming as a result of experimentation and play. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It really is playing,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I like to try different things.â&#x20AC;? And in the end, she says, it allows for a freshness in the creative

process and a better understanding of the possibilities offered by a variety of materials. So her renditions of rural scenes, wildlife, still lifes, caricatures and abstract images are presented in a range of media including watercolours, oils and acrylics as well as mixed media including pastel and collage. Sharing ideas, techniques and styles with fellow artists through workshops or during regular sessions with her colleagues from the Stirling-based Group of Eleven has helped

Stirling-Rawdon Public Library art gallery, with about two dozen pieces offering a glimpse into her appreciation of not only the world around her, but the materials and techniques used to represent it. Along with her involvement with the Group of Eleven, she is also an active member of the Trenton Art Club. The library gallery routinely exhibits the work of local paint-

ers, photographers and other ďŹ ne artists and has featured individual and group shows providing exposure for dozens of new and established talents. The work of another local artist is also regularly presented in the library foyer display and this month samples of pottery by Susan Kostya of Stirling-based Fine Pottery Creations are featured. The gallery is open during regular library hours.

News - Students entering a post-secondary environment have it tough. They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know anybody, often theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re far from home, and it can be tough to integrate into a community that they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel a part of. This is hard enough for students entering their programs in September with the rest of the new students, but for students entering a program with a January start, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s even tougher to get into the ďŹ&#x201A;ow of things. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I still remember my ďŹ rst experience at Loyalist, walking into the cafeteria

Lifestyles - Madoc - There has been a Presbyterian congregation in Madoc Township since 1836 which grew from thirty settlers to include the founding fathers of the region: business men, politicians, teachers, doctors, masons, miners, war heroes, and even a senator. The ďŹ rst Presbyterian church was built in Madoc on land donated by Mrs.Catherine MacBeath, after four years of construction, congregants held their ďŹ rst service October 1,1854 with J. W. Chestnut as minister. It was the minister who followed him that made St. Peterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and the Presbyterian congregation grow and prosper. Reverend David Wishart took the ministry April 6 of 1857. He built a home, now known as â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;the stone manseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, from the quarry of church member Malcom McIntosh. Wishart remained minister to the church for 40 years. After he retired, the congregation built a red brick manse adjacent to the church on part of Wishartâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s property. It was completed and occupied in 1900. In his elder years, Wishart sold the stone house to live with family in Toronto. Part of St. Peterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history was severed.

An opportunity to reclaim that history came in 1983 when the stone house came up for sale. Anne and Prudence McIntosh, descendants of Malcom McIntosh, seized the moment, purchased the property and offered to exchange it for the brick manse. St. Peterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s was once again historically complete. Throughout the past year, members of St. Peterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s congregation, though celebrating 177 years of their faith in this community, and 160 years of the church on the hill, have faced some crucial decisions, including what to do with the manse. With a decline in active membership, the church is faced with ďŹ nancial difďŹ culties. The congregation was faced with two choices, to sell the manse, or to rent it out. Pastor Luke Vanderkamp is serving as interim moderator. He said â&#x20AC;&#x153;The number of active members cannot support a minister. Upkeep on the manse is costly and decisions have to be made.â&#x20AC;? At a meeting in November, Vanderkamp said the congregation voted to rent the manse to â&#x20AC;&#x153;a suitable occupantâ&#x20AC;?. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is a lot of history in the building, but, the congregation cannot manage to carry costs at this time.â&#x20AC;?

Orientation eases transition for new Loyalist students Continued from page 8

arriving for a January start, the college held its ďŹ rst ever formal January orientation session for the roughly 200 new students entering programs on Monday. Accounting, photojournalism, general arts and science and art and design foundation are just a few of the programs that are available for students wanting to join the college in the new year, and Naumann explained that while some programs simply start in January, others make special accommodations for students, such as allowing the second semester of a program to be taken ďŹ rst. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve recognized that people are coming into programs and we really want the college to welcome them, and let them know weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re really glad theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re here,â&#x20AC;? Naumann said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If they left with nothing else today, I think thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a positive message ... We do want to help. The most important thing to us is student success, we want to see you walk across the stage at graduation and we want to be there and shake your hand.â&#x20AC;? After a brief introduction session early in the morning, students were whisked away by academic teams for a quick overview of their programs before convening for lunch. From there, the college had arranged for a city bus to come and pick up students interested

in taking a tour of the city, before formal campus tours later in the day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Even though youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re coming in halfway through the year, we want to have different activities that will help (them) transition and integrate within the community,â&#x20AC;?

Naumann said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re so well-versed in all our services that sometimes we can make a mistake and say â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;everybody knows,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really important to tell people that we have all of these programs and services available.â&#x20AC;?

The historic stone manse built in 1857 by Rev. David Wishart will remain under the care of St.Peterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Presbyterian church, but, changes will be made this year to assist with managing costs. Photo: Diane Sherman

This is the third time in history the Wishart house has been â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;savedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; so-tospeak. It was ďŹ rst threatened by the great ďŹ re of May 4,1873, when most of Madoc was destroyed by ďŹ re, including St. Peterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s original church. Historic records state Reverend Wishart dropped to his knees praying for a shift in hurricane winds as embers were settling on the manse and church roof. The Reverend had been dousing embers from the roof of his home when he saw the church roof take ďŹ&#x201A;ame. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Seeing this, Rev. Wishart dismayed of saving the manse. He descended the roof and prayed with his family that the Lord would change direction of the wind, two points, to save the house, and vowed he would do what he could for a better church ediďŹ ce.â&#x20AC;? (from St. Andrewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Chronicle as quoted in St. Peterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Presbyterian History, 1986, Madoc Printing & Publishing). As history is recorded, the winds did shift â&#x20AC;&#x153;two points to the north and the manse was saved but he was determined to keep his vow and build a new and better churchâ&#x20AC;? (pg. 11, St. Peterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Presbyterian History). A new church was built with the same stone as the manse, and many stained glass windows installed. By 1874 the church was completed by stone masons brought over by Wishart from Petershead, Scotland. The ofďŹ cial laying of the cornerstone June 17 of 1874 was attended by upwards of ďŹ ve hundred people. Going into 2014 most elder members of St. Peterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s have passed on with an average of forty members attending regular service. The manse is once again saved, at least for a while.

Rapunzel crowd spans 100 years Entertainment - Stirling – As another Christmas panto came to a close in Stirling last week, the month-long run of Ken MacDougall’s Rapunzel: A hairy tale provided many memorable moments for performers and spectators alike, including the extension of birthday Rapunzel cast members Amir Haidar, Kristi Frank and Megan Poole sign autographs for youngsters attending one of the final wishes to the village’s oldest resident. 2013 shows at the Stirling Festival Theatre. A matinee performance of the family show on January 29 boasted an audience spanning more than 100 years when Alice Heasman, now 105, accompanied by Stirling Festival Theatre

(SFT) Board Chair Andrew Marre, took her usual seat near the front. A former school teacher whose career, prior to her retirement in 1969, included a year at the front of a British classroom, Heasman has spent most of her life in the immediate area and can quickly recount childhood memories of long walks to school and her later pursuit of a teaching career. As well, though apologetic for her inability to cite all the specifics, she recalls the many other panto performances she has enjoyed in recent years. She was born on December 23, 1908.

Belated birthday greetings were offered by many, including from House Manager Kim Whiteman at the close of intermission and cast members who found opportune moments during the performance, and all were graciously received. Immediately following the show, cast members arrived at the front of the stage to greet attendees and sign autographs for dozens of young fans who gathered around them. The performance offered plenty of laughs, strong musical performances and a comical take on a well-known fairy tale as well as an extended version of the highly anticipated If I Should Ever Lose My Job, adding backstage crew to the near-miss choreography of the seven-member cast. Many SFT regulars made a return to the Stirling stage for the production, including Kristi Frank, J.P. Baldwin, Debbie Collins, Dean Hollin and Arthur Wright along with newcomers Megan Poole and Amir Haidar. And theatre officials were once again pleased with the response to the yearend show that opened on November 22. “It’s been good,” says SFT Managing Director David Vanderlip of the final month of 2013. And while a busy time for the theatre, he notes, it is an annual highlight that only seems to improve with age. While some cancellations were made as a result of the weather, including a planned December 21 visit by Heasman prior to her 105th birthday, Vanderlip says shows went on as scheduled and attendance throughout the run proved to be an encouraging way to end the season. The final show ran on New Year’s Eve.

Centre Hastings Grizzlies roundup Tweed Hawks runners

Sports - On Sunday December 29th, the Ennismore Eagles visited the Marmora Arena for a tilt with the McDonald’s Atom Grizzlies. Down several players heading into the game, the Griz called up forward Nick Oke and blue-liner Ben Danford to support their line-up. The game opened up with a beautiful goal by Tyler Sawkins as he converted on passes from Kellen Dostaler and Marek Skalba. Sawkins continued with his scoring touch when he buried his second thanks to a pass from Jack Sandford in the second period. Captain Kellen Dostaler’s hard work also paid off in the second when he re-directed a pass from defenseman Ben Bailey to give his team a 3 - 1 lead. Dostaler’s goal would prove to be the game winner as Anna Belle Phillips made several outstanding saves in

the third to propel her team to a 3 - 2 victory. The Grizzlies faced off two more times against the Eagles on January 3rd and January 4th. Centre Hastings was able bring home four points with the pair of victories thanks to hard work and team play. On the 3rd, The Grizzlies jumped ahead thanks to goals by Phoenix Smith and Kellen Dostaler. Marek Skalba added two more along with Smith’s second and a single tally by Tyler Sawkins to lift the Griz to a 6 - 4 win. The Grizzlies travelled to Ennismore the next day and earned a hard fought 6 - 4 victory. Smith recorded the hat trick with singles from Skalba, Kieran Finch and veteran defenseman Carter Cassidy. Assists were provided by Dostaler (2), Ben Rosborough (2), Sawkins, Jack Sandford, Ben Bailey

and Cassidy. On January 5th, the McBeath Atom A Grizzlies travelled to Gananoque where they continued to show improvement against the Islanders. Anna-Belle Phillips was extremely solid between the pipes as the Grizzlies defeated Gan by a final score of 6 - 1. Scoring for the Grizzlies were Smith (2), Sawkins (2), Heiden Leonard and Finch. Assists were provided by Dostaler (3), Smith, Rosborough, Ryker Huygens, Jacob Kennedy, Leonard and Braeden Cassidy. The McConnell Funeral Home Peewee A Grizzlies played back to back road games in Ennismore on January 4th and 5th against the Eagles. Friday’s game was a close tight-checking game in which the Grizzlies prevailed by a score of 2 - 1 behind solid defence and key saves by Owen McMaster. Saturday’s game was more one-sided in the Grizzlies favour but you wouldn’t know it by the close 2 - 0 final score. The Grizzlies dominated much of the game but the Ennismore goalie kept his team in the game despite being badly outshot. Hayden Hammock earned the shutout for Centre Hastings.

Tweed Hawks win Atom tournament

By Scott Pettigrew

Sports - Tweed – The Tweed Atom Hawks won the A division in a tournament held on January 3 in Tweed as the Hawks beat Ennismore in the final game by a very convincing score of 8 - 2. The tournament consisted of the Brighton Braves, Centre Hastings Grizzlies, EnDo you have a big nismore Eagles, Muskrat Voyagers, game coming up Orono Leafs and the Tweed Hawks. This that we should know was the second tournament held over the holiday season as Tweed hosted an Atom about? tournament the week before and the Send us the details so AE Atom AE Hawk team made it to the A fiwe can be there. nal in that tournament as well but lost. In commenting on the win for the tbush@metroland.com Hawks team general manager and Tweed Minor Hockey President Ken McKichan said, “We really turned it on after the second period and it was a real team effort. They COACH & TOURS moved the puck around very well spreading out the defense.” The final game started off with Ennismore scor-

ing very quickly and going ahead by 1 - 0. After that it was all Tweed and by the end of the second period the Hawks were up by a score of 3 - 1. Niilo Ahola played a very strong game getting in on the first three goals which set the tone for the game. Tweed’s goaltending was very strong as Tucker McKichan didn’t let that early goal upset him and settled into a very strong game protecting the puck well and not letting out many rebounds. Asked about this year’s minor hockey season so far McKichan said, “This is the first year in many years that we have been able to have a juvenile team. It was a little bit of a struggle to get kids that were older out and on time for registration but it did eventually work out and it has been really great to have the addition of the juveniles. We have strong teams at every level this year and our registration numbers are up over last year. It has been a very successful year for Tweed Minor Hockey overall.” McKichan said that Hawks playoffs will start around the week of January 10 and encourages as many people as possible to come out and root for their home teams.

Pampered in Paradisis By John M. Smith

resorts, for it consists of five easily recognizable pyramids and it’s located a mere 15 minutes from the airport, so it’s close to the action. Its 668 suites include 136 Royal Service Deluxe Suites and 183 Family Concierge Junior Suites and the resort also has a tennis court, a 9-hole par 3 golf course, four pools, and a wide selection of bars and restaurants (including several a la carte choices, with varying dress codes).  A short walk took me from this resort to the new Cancun Maya Museum, which is well worth a visit.  It contains many archaeological artifacts from Mayan excavations, so I learned a lot about this ancient civilization while there.  I also checked out the San Miguelito archaeological site, located next to this museum, and walked among its ruins and I was joined on this tour by some local iguanas. Another worthwhile attraction is right across the street from the Paradisus Cancun.  Aquaworld, Cancun’s largest marina, offers swimming with dolphins, snorkeling, scuba diving, and parasailing opportunities and day trips to the nearby island of Isla Mujeres.  It also offers an opportunity (which we took) to take a jet boat out to see

English artist Jason Decaires Taylor’s 400 underwater lifesized sculptures that form an artificial reef. The Paradisus Playa del Carmen, the other awesome resort I visited, is located about 45 minutes south of Cancun, right on the Mayan Riviera, and it’s an even larger property, with over 900 suites, including 120 Royal Service Luxury Junior Suites (with a Jacuzzi on each balcony), and more than 100 swim-up suites. It’s located close to Playa del Carmen’s main street, 5th Avenue, which I could reach by simply strolling along the beach for about 25 minutes.  I also discovered that it’s less than an hour boat ride to the island of Cozumel. In addition to the pampering you’ll receive at Playa del Carmen, I’d also recommend taking the resort’s informative mangrove tour, to learn more about the importance of preserving this delicate eco-system.  I’d also take time to experience swimming in a nearby cenote (an exposed groundwater pool/natural sinkhole).   Furthermore, I’d suggest adding a day trip to the nearby Mayan archaeological sites at Tulum, Coba, and/or Chichen Itza and these trips can be arranged right at the resort itself.

Lifestyles - One of the perks of my ‘job’ is that, from time to time, I get to participate in a ‘press trip’ with a group of fellow travel writers, and my latest such excursion took me and four other Canadian travel writers to Cancun and the Mayan Riviera, where we were guests at the Paradisus Cancun and Paradisus Playa del Carmen. Both 5-star properties proved to be exceptional and we were treated ‘royally’ (literally), for we resided in the adults-only section of the resorts, with their all-inclusive luxury and Paradisus signature ‘Royal Service’.  This meant that we had the assistance of a personal butler/concierge during our stay that would, if we wished, help with such chores as unpacking/packing our luggage, reserving specialty restaurants and spa services, booking excursions, ironing clothes, shoe shining, and even drawing a bath.  It also meant that our in-room minibar was restocked daily and we had a separate check-in/out lounge, personalized turn-down service, complimentary Internet access, a choice of aromatic pillows, and our own private pool, bar and restaurant.  We were even given cell phones with which to call our personal butler/concierge at any time. This ‘Royal Service’ treatment is available to any adult guest, of course (at an additional cost), but if you really want to relax and be pampered, then this is the answer.  Both resorts also offer a similar treatment for families, in a separate area, and includes the assistance of a Family Concierge, a Paradisus Kids Beach Kit, a Kids Zone (with supervised children’s activities), special children’s in-suite amenities (including robes, slippers, and a kit containing such items as a mini toothbrush, insect repellant, sunblock, and shower gel), and a nightly turn-down service that includes milk and cookies.  Both resorts also offer “Life Enrichment Experiences” as part of their allinclusive package, including such activities as yoga, pilates, massage lessons, wine, tequila, and sushi tastings, tango and salsa classes, and belly and pole dancing lessons (apparently this latter one is the most popular).  I partook in a tequila tasting enrichment, which I did with Carlos, who told me that “tequila is often wasted on the young who are merely trying to get drunk by quickly consuming shot after shot.”  He confided that good tequila should actually be consumed straight and slowly to “experience and savour the smooth, full flavour.”  Both resorts also offer one a la carte restaurant that costs extra, and we tried these, too to simply check them out for you, of course.  Expect to spend two to three hours here, luxuriating, with the serving of several exquisite courses, each embellished by an enticing mixture of intriguing flavours, some contrasting and some complementing, that will awaken all your taste buds, and each course accompanied by delectable wine pairings.  I discovered that these marathon specialty tastings were definitely an important part of the pampering at Paradisus!   If even further pampering is necessary, both resorts have a YHI SPA, where you’re instructed to “invigorate your senses”.  In my quest to ‘sample it all’, I, too, tried the 50 minute Relaxation Body Massage just so that I could report that it was, indeed, relaxing and worthwhile! The Paradisus Cancun is arguably the most spectacular looking of these

WEST; Archie Leonard

May 8 1933 – January 2 2014.

Born in Hastings, at a whopping 12 pounds, Archie was the youngest of 12 children of Bill and Mary Lousia West. That many children meant lots of stories to tell, NONE of which Archie was EVER the troublemaker. If you believe that…you didn’t know Archie. He started his love affair with Luella Lee, daughter of Wesley and Vi Lee, at Christmas with a Life Saver storybook. Their story carried on for over 60 years. Lots of love, laughter, and teasing. His three girls; Lynne (Dennis McColl), Karen (Hugh Mitchell), Tracy (Len Rance), learned to dish it right back and he’d laugh. 1949 All Ontario Midget Hockey Champion. He loved his hockey. As a goaltender, he would lean his elbow on the cross bar and wait until the action hit the blue line before getting ready for the puck. Lou was glad when helmets and facemasks came out because Archie had broken his nose so often that he could flatten it across his cheek. He’d do that to gross out the grandchildren. He was still playing in his 70’s. At games, his grandchildren didn’t stand a chance. Playing cards he won, especially euchre, he could make it on a 9 and take the hand. Crokinole, the kids fingers were bruised …he won. Archie was a dad, an awesome grampa to Karen Cork (Kirk), DJ McColl (Rachelle), Tara Watters (Derek), Heather McColl (Chris Knox), Dax Mitchell, Drew Mitchell, Zac Rance (Kate Macoun), and Miranda Rance, great grampa to Robbie Cork, Camden and Nathan McColl, William and Samantha Knox, a brother to; Jim, Rita, Thelma, Myrtle, Mildred, Laura, Hazel, Don, Billy,(all predeceased), Bob, Tiny (Edith), a friend to many, an uncle to even more, and especially a loving husband to Lou. Friends may send condolences to Archie’s family by contacting THE HENDREN FUNERAL HOMES, NORWOOD CHAPEL at www. hendrenfuneralhome.com. He will be missed and remembered by all.
