Lifestyles - Madoc - The municipality of Centre Hastings was recognized in the national publication of Communities in Bloom for 2013 as a noncompetitive entry from Ontario, alongside the City of Vaughan, and towns of Essex, Gravenhurst, Arnprior and Carleton Place. The municipality received a commendation which council decided should be handed over to students of the greenhouse program for their continued contributions. Students, Jessica Aide and Dennis Hein accepted the recognition on behalf of their class, January 9, in the greenhouse where the project began. The greenhouse project is part of the Practical Living Program with local Master Gardener Steven Airhart contributing his expertise along with Martin Cofield. Educational assistant Kristin Potts said those students who get involved with the greenhouse tend to be “very enthusiastic with their work.� Plants grown by students are arranged anew each year in bins placed around the village. The large wooden inserts and finished outer containers were made by students of the school’s Restoration and Renovation technical program. Department head, Brad Olsen said those who worked on the original project have graduated, but, the class continues to partner with the municipality to build other structures such as the tourist booth which opened this past spring, shelters on the Trail of Two Lakes, and the nature boardwalk at the Kiwanis beach on Moira Lake. Deputy Mayor Tom Simpson initiated numerous partnership projects with the school. He said one of his personal contributions to the annual Community Care fundraising dinner are the more than 100 floral table arrangePlease see “Village� on page 3

Police board ponders Taser authorization

By Richard Turtle

News – Stirling – A change in policy by the Ministry of Correctional Services now allows police service boards to determine who in the department is authorized to carry a Taser but members of the StirlingRawdon PSB are in no rush to make that decision. Discussed under the heading “Expansion of Conducted Energy Weapon Deployment,� Board Chair Tara Dier noted the rules had previously been restrictive but the

changes require more serious consideration than discussion at a single meeting. Interim Chief Christina Reive told the board that policies vary for different departments where some or all officers are issued the weapon. Currently, only Stirling-Rawdon staff sergeants carry them. Board member Wilfred Shier moved that the board consult the interim chief and come up with a policy for the Stirling-Rawdon Police Service.

Arthur Pym is the president of the Tweed Lions Club and when asked to comment on the attendance at the monthly jamborees he said, “Weather has had an impact on the numbers and we are slightly below last year’s attendance. Most of our clientele are seniors and it is difďŹ cult for them to get out in bad weather. Tonight’s jamboree has a good turnout and we expect that next month’s Valentine Special February 14 with Cathy Whalen will be a very good night. “The funds raised from these jamborees are important and is one of our main sources of money along with the Music in the Park.

Stirling – Members of the Stirling-Rawdon Police Services Board ofďŹ cially welcomed Interim Police Chief Christina Reive to the department at their ďŹ rst regular meeting of the new year, noting a permanent replacement is expected to be named before the end of April. Reive temporarily replaces former Chief Brian Foley whose contract expired at the end of 2013 and was not renewed by the board. Board Chair Tara Dier would say only that Foley is currently “on leave.â€? Dier opened the meeting with the introduction of the interim chief saying the board is “extremely grateful to the OPP and Staff Sergeant Reive,â€? for making the necessary accommodations. Reive arrives in Stirling-Rawdon with 20 years of experience that began with the Trenton Police. After joining the OPP in 2004, Reive moved to East Region Headquarters as a criminal investigation specialist. She is expected to head up the department for the next three or four months, Dier says, until the selection process is completed. She explains that the process will include various elements, including an upcoming public meeting on Tuesday, January 21, to determine “the qualiďŹ cations we should be looking for in a police chief,â€? followed by consultations with the Crown, police associations and others, the creation of a list of criteria, advertising the position, processing the submissions,

It is yet to be determined who the hiring panel will be, Dier says, but it could be made up of a full or partial board as well as outside advisors.

Heather said that at the moment the money is not speciďŹ cally earmarked for anything in particular but added, “I am sure that with all we have going on the money will most likely be spent by next week.

Martin’s report opened with that reference in her background statement: “Over the past three years staff and council have experienced an extreme amount of controversy over the issue of the reimbursements and payment for cell phone expenses. The cost of staff time and legal expenses surrounding MFIPPA requests has far outweighed any actual cell phone expenses.” She went on to explain staff has negotiated a “corporate share plan agreement” with Bell Canada paying $22 per month for a bundle with $25 for transfer of 500 mega bites of data to enable email and web services. The recommendation was to “rescind” the old policy, which allotted $95 dollars per month usage with justified expenditure reports. Council suggested the word “rescind” be changed to “amend,” a recommendation also made by Hadley in his delegation. The recommendation stated it would make “cell phone privileges an automatic benefit to each member of council either by supply of a municipal cell phone enrolled in the corporate plan, or a quarterly automatic reimbursement of the same $50 per month value (for private phones).”

ments, which he relies on the greenhouse class to supply. “They always do a wonderful job, and villagers are constantly saying how they appreciate the flower boxes in the village.” Roseanne Ballast of Stonepath Greenhouses, near Tweed, is a strong supporter of the school’s program. Ballast said she thinks “the program at CHSS greenhouse is an important one. The quality of their plants and combinations in the town’s landscape are fantastic. The municipality is lucky to have a program in place that can incorporate a teaching program of this nature into community benefit.” Simpson said this was the first year the municipality registered with Canada Communities in Bloom. “It was felt Centre Hastings had a unique partnership that should be shared across the country. We are very pleased it was listed in the 2013 magazine which is published from coast to coast.” The greenhouse opens each year for an annual sale before Mother’s Day and also offers starter plants for vegetable gardens.

NEWSPAPER RETRACTION FOR THE BEST BUY JANUARY 10 CORPORATE FLYER In the January 10 flyer, on page 15, the SKLZ XL Pro Mini Hoop (Web Code: 10268720) is currently not in stock. Inventory for this “online only” product is expected to arrive next week.

Deputy Mayor Tom Simpson objected to the “automatic reimbursement” statement. He said he has never charged the municipality for his cell phone use and believes that reimbursement should be “an option” versus “automatic.” Councillor Larry Mitz was in favour of this also, stating he has not submitted invoices for his cell phone/s. “I have enough to do without sitting down going through my bills to figure out what was municipal business or personal, and I just think that procedure was a waste of time.” Council concluded to amend the phone usage policy to make $50 optionally available monthly with no required documentation for staff and council.


Board members were not displeased with the final numbers as they reviewed revenues and expenditures for 2013 although there were some concerns. Board member Rodney Cooney noted while some expenses were greater than anticipated, others were lower. Overall, he said, “everything’s not too, too bad.” However, recent hydro bills of $5,000 per month and projected costs of $73,000 this year is reason for concern, Cooney says. The board agreed to transfer any surplus into reserves. In receiving the 2012 Annual Report, board members agreed the document should be prepared and submitted much sooner after year end. Wilfred Shier asked if the paperwork could be completed more quickly in future, adding the 2012 report arrived in 2014. “All this information is available to us throughout the year,” Dier said, but agreed the completed report would best serve the board if it arrived in the months immediately following year end. Unable to secure grant funding, the PSB may be forced to pay full price for the installation of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) in the emergency services building. The fire department does have portable defibrillators in its trucks, the board was told, but the building is without a wall mounted unit. “I’ve tried to get these,” Cooney said of the grants available, noting he will continue his efforts “but we might have to buy one.” Following the regular business, concerns were heard from several members of the gallery including questions relating to grant shortfalls in the police department. “We’ve got alarm bells going off,” said Dier, but added it is more a municipal issue. Those shortfalls, Cooney explained, are projected to grow by hundreds of thousands of dol-

lars in each of the next three years and are of serious concern to both the board and council. “We’ll get into that January 28,” he says. That day council will be holding a public meeting, “and we’ll be looking at all avenues, all aspects (of the municipal budget),” he adds. With policing costs at $770 per household in Stirling-Rawdon, Shier says, the municipality has the highest figure in Hastings County. “We’re at the top of the pack in Ontario,” Cooney noted, but disagreed with a suggestion from the gallery that StirlingRawdon had “the Cadillac of policing.” “We’re not the Cadillac of systems,” he said, noting expenses such as police training courses aren’t a consideration for municipalities under OPP jurisdiction. “Scale is everything.”

mits time is running out with funding cuts looming and the space currently available being largely under-utilized. Programs aimed at the underprivileged, unemployed and disabled are critically important to any community, he says, but providing them to only a fraction of those eligible has raised questions about the centre’s viability in Stirling. “We’re going to have to put the throttle down and go or get out of the game,� he says. But before any final decision is made, Cassidy notes, a meeting to reassess the organization’s strategic plan is expected to help determine CPFS’s future direction. An open discussion has been scheduled for January 29, from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. at 45 East Front St. with invitations sent to local churches, service clubs and businesses looking for input and potential solutions. “We’ve had our funding reduced and specified,� Cassidy says, adding it has resulted in a greater reliance on donations, “but we’re really looking for new partners.� Items to be discussed include the need for local licensed child care, the needs of the unemployed and disabled and the needs of home based parents

Also near the top of the list was the fact that the Municipality had been approved for $1 million in provincial funding for a new wastewater treatment system for the Village of Deloro, which will be installed in the coming year. A $50,000 provincial grant has also been announced for a tourism and economic impact study on the local area relating to the Northland Power’s proposed pumped storage project. Clemens went on to say that a decision has yet to be made as to who will conduct the study.

For cat lovers: A visit to Malaysia’s “Cat Museum”

The entrance to Kuching’s Cat Museum.

One of many cat sculptures found in the city of Kuching.

By John M. Smith

Lifestyles - Kuching is the capital of the state of Sarawak on Borneo in Malaysia, and “Kucing” translates as “Cat” in Malay, so it’s rather appropriate that I found a “Cat Museum” in the city of Kuching, Malaysia. Some visitors might find this museum to be rather strange, even tacky, but if you’re a cat fan, then this could be the museum for you! It’s indeed, a rather unique museum, perhaps the only one of its kind in the world, and it features over 2,000 feline-related items. It not only contains a plethora of cat statues, photos, posters, jigsaw puzzles and even stamps (for cat loving philatelists) from all over the world, but it also offers a lot of information about the history and importance of cats in various cultures. One of the museum’s galleries has fascinating accounts of the cat’s role in the Chinese, Egyptian,

Japanese and Malay societies. For example, I discovered that many Malaysians believe that cats have special supernatural powers, and may bring luck; they’re therefore treated with great respect. Cats are the most popular pet to be found in this country and Kuching has several cat sculptures within the city, especially along the Pandungan Road and along the waterfront, to honour this feline creature. One of the sculptures near the city’s entrance, has a cat standing with its paw stretched out, as if welcoming guests to this city. In the museum itself, one of the posters advocates the importance and reliability of the pet cat in the Malay home: “HE WON’T DO THE DISHES, BUT HE”LL BE THERE WHEN YOU NEED HIM.” As I entered and exited the Kuching Cat Museum, I walked through the giant mouth of a cat, and among the most impressive displays that I found within the museum was a mummified Egyptian cat that dated back to about 3500 BC. I learned that the ancient Egyptians certainly revered these animals. There was even a period of time when cats were considered so valuable and important that a person who killed a cat could be put to death, too! The Egyptians were the first to domesticate cats, and I found out that ancient Egyptians often shaved

their eyebrows in mourning when the family cat died. The Egyptians even had a cat goddess, Bastet, who protected crops, made rain and symbolized motherhood. There are some very bizarre cat stories on display within the museum, such as the woman who decided to cremate her dead cat and mix the cat’s ashes into tattoo ink – and she then had a cat sketch tattooed onto her leg! I also discovered that one entire section of the museum was dedicated to the five species of wild cats still found in this part of the world. The museum claims to have the only mounted specimen of the world’s rarest cat, the Felis Badia, which is only found in Borneo’s rain forests. The cat’s significance in music is also ‘noted’ in this museum, for there’s a reference to such songs as “The Cat Came Back” (from the late 1800’s) and “Kitten on the Keys” (a jazz classic from 1921) – and, of course, the famous musical, “Cats” (based on poetry by T.S. Eliot). The Kuching Cat Museum is located in the North City Hall, on Bukit Siol, a hill with a great view of the city. It’s free to visit this unusual, unique museum, but there’s a charge for using a camera. It’s open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. from Tuesday to Sunday, including public holidays. You can see the Sarawak River from up here, which used to be the city’s main highway and it’s still very important, for much of present day life is

I found that the narrow, bustling streets near the river were crammed with ornate temples, markets, historic buildings and traditional shops selling local handicrafts and foods.

Egypt referendum

Editorial - General Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, who led the coup against Egypt’s elected president last July, has one of the finest collections of military headgear in the entire Middle East. Perhaps that’s why he has still not admitted that he plans to become the next president: he can’t decide which hat to throw into the ring. His own explanation for his shyness comes straight out of the Aspiring DictaGwynne Dyer tor’s Handbook: “If I nominate myself, there must be a popular demand, and a mandate from my army,” he told the state-owned paper AlAhram. “When Egyptians say something, we obey, and I will never turn my back on Egypt.” Egyptian generals are deeply patriotic people, and three others before Sisi have sacrificed their own desire for a quiet life in order to rule Egypt: Gamal Abdel Nasser (1956-70), Anwar Sadat (1970-81) and Hosni Mubarak (1981-2011). In fact, the last three years have been the only time in the life of the great majority of Egyptians when a general has not been running the country, and Sisi seems ready to make the supreme sacrifice too. A mandate from the army shouldn’t be hard to get, since he runs the whole organization. And as far as “popular demand” is concerned, Sisi is clearly planning to use a “yes” vote in this week’s referendum on the new constitution as proof that the people want him for president. The new constitution will be the third in four years. It replaces the one that was written and adopted (also by referendum) during the brief, unhappy rule of President Mohamed Morsi, who took office on June 30, 2012 and was overthrown on July 3, 2013. It removes the “Islamic” changes that Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood wrote into the last one, which should appeal to secular Egyptians, but that’s not what makes it attractive to General Sisi. The new clauses that only a soldier could love include one that gives the Egyptian military the right to appoint the defence minister, and another that says the military budget will

not be subject to civilian oversight. It also retains the muchcriticized clause that allows civilians to be tried in military courts. Sisi reckons enough civilians will vote for it anyway, some because they hate the Islamists and some because they are just tired of all the upheavals. Maybe they will, because the whole Arab world is suffering from revolution fatigue: the “Arab awakening” has caused such turbulence that many people would find a return to the old dictatorships almost comforting. It’s true even in Syria, where some of the rebels are starting to talk about making a deal with the Assad regime in order to isolate the Islamist extremists and hasten the end of the war. Egyptians are frightened and exhausted, and Sisi apparently thinks they will gratefully accept a return to army rule (behind a democratic facade). But his nervousness is showing: there’s barely a wall in Cairo that is not covered with “Yes” posters and pictures of Sisi, while people trying to put up “No” posters get arrested. Sisi is probably right to be nervous. In late September, three months after the coup, Zogby Research Services carried out an extensive opinion poll in Egypt for the Sir Bani Yas Forum in Abu Dhabi. It revealed that confidence in the army had already dropped from 93 per cent to 70 per cent, and it probably has gone on dropping. General Sisi and former President Morsi had almost equal support in the country – 46 per cent for Sisi, 44 per cent for Morsi (who now faces trial for “inciting his supporters to carry out premeditated murder” and various other alleged crimes). The Zogby poll also revealed that an overwhelming majority of respondents blame the last military regime, under Hosni Mubarak, for the problems facing Egypt today. All in all, this is hardly a firm foundation on which to complete the counter-revolution and build a new military regime. The likeliest outcome of the referendum on the new constitution this week (Tuesday and Wednesday) will be a modest majority for the “Yes”, but on a very low turnout. If it is lower than the mere 33 per cent who voted in the referendum on the last constitution in 2012, then Sisi may have to reconsider his plan to run for the presidency.


Ontario: Yours to Recover In her Thursday, Jan. 9 letter to the editor, our local Liberal candidate Georgina Thompson decided to use Liberal talking points in response to a year-end column that the EMC ran with our local MPP, Todd Smith. In the tradition of McGuinty-Wynne Liberals, she ignored the facts. She fails to mention jobs numbers were the worst in the country in December as Ontario lost 39,000 jobs in a single month. Imagine putting a city nearly the size of Quinte West out of work in a single month, because that’s basically what the Liberal job record was for December. She raises the Liberal “partnership” with Cisco Canada. Apparently, we should be excited about the Ontario government giving 220 million taxpayer dollars to a company that made $8 billion in profit last year. That means Cisco couldn’t spare less than three per cent of profit margin to do business in Ontario. There’s a reason why a Western University professor said this “easily ranks as the worst Canadian public policy [decision] of 2013.” Corporate welfare – which is what this is – isn’t a strategy, it’s the last result when you’ve messed up everything else. And speaking of messing up everything else, let’s talk about how much your hydro bill has gone up in the last decade. You’re paying a lot more now than you used to. You’re paying for two cancelled gas plants in Mississauga and

Oakville, you’re paying for wind and solar power when we don’t need it and then selling to the United States and Quebec at a loss. You’re paying, you’re paying, you never stop paying. And make no mistake, we’re the ones paying for it. Your hydro bill has gone up 107 per cent since 2003. Most of that just since 2009. I can understand why she ignored those facts. In her letter, Ms. Thompson mentions the Liberal’s grant to Sigma Stretch Films. She forgets (conveniently) the news article that highlighted that while the grant was for $237,000, Sigma’s monthly hydro bill was $325,000. That’s up from $143,000 a couple years ago and, under the plan the Liberals announced in December, it will be $461,000 by 2017. Meaning that, really, all that $237,000 is paying for is a couple weeks of electricity. As to Heinz and Kellogg’s, the Liberals can do their best to spin it. But, decades of manufacturing tradition, pillars of the community and thousands of jobs will be leaving Ontario when those doors close. Lost jobs, sky-high hydro rates and corporate welfare payments. I didn’t think Ms. Thompson would be so willing to defend those three things. Because no matter how she chooses to phrase it, that’s what the facts say the Liberal record is.  Carrie Impey, Belleville

Start a new fad, walk to school By Terry Bush Editorial - . I didn’t think I heard it right the first time so when it came on the radio again, I listened a little more closely. At the end of the commercial, a young girl can be heard saying, “I can walk to school, can you?” The commercial was sponsored by the local Health Unit, which is no doubt trying to spur the younger generation into getting a bit of exercise. “I can walk to school.” Of course hearing something like this brought out the inner geezer in me that seems to be lurking just below the surface at any given time, now that I’m older. Walking to school is something we all used to do. We had no choice and didn’t think anything of it at the time. We walked everywhere. The only time we didn’t walk was when we rode our bikes, another innovative idea whose time has come. It’s not like our families were rich enough to have two cars at their disposal and why would you need two vehicles? Most mothers stayed at home those days. Not only did we walk or ride our bikes to school, we had to ride them home for lunch because town kids, even if they lived at the far end of town, weren’t allowed in the lunch room unless their mothers sent a note saying they wouldn’t be home that day because they were busy at the hospital giving birth. While I didn’t have to walk as far as my father did, which if I recall correctly was in the neighbourhood of eight miles uphill both ways, it was still quite a hike by today’s standards considering many children only walk from the car to the front door of the school. I would guess we walked or rode our bikes probably a mile or so to get to school, which was really nothing. To a geezer in training like myself, today’s kids, despite today’s technology, are missing out on some great childhood memories and most of them involve physical activity. When we were kids, and by that I mean under the age of 10, we walked for miles to bring the cows in for milking. There was no complaining involved, we thought it was a privilege to be given the responsibility to walk to the other side of the woods and herd the cows back through the woods to the barn. It made us feel all grown up, like we were teenagers. It could never happen today but we also stopped traffic on Highway 14 at the top of the first hill south of Stirling and herded the cows across the road into the barn to be milked too. We built forts in the woods, fished in every creek and stream in the area, regularly visited the Stirling sewage lagoons to admire the wildlife and did all this either on foot or on our bikes. Our decidedly low tech, one-speed bicycles worked almost as well in the winter as they did in the summer depending on the day. I can still recall strapping a very weighty bag of Saturday Toronto Telegrams to my banana seat and travelling to the four corners of Stirling through slush and snow on a paper route that nobody wanted for good reason. It didn’t kill me but I sure looked forward to the Saturdays when my grandfather or dad had a bit of time to drive me around. Those Saturday Telegrams were almost two inches thick. Quite a slog when you only had one gear, but no worse than our rides up the hills from Stirling to Oak Lake to go swimming in the summer. In the evenings, kids on the street would gather at dusk for a game of flashlight hide and seek in the nearby fields. From a young age, my friends and I would travel over hill and dale in the dead of winter, tentatively crossing Rawdon Creek to that Mecca of tobogganing, Shay’s Hill, for a day of fun. It wasn’t unusual to find 80 kids there, red-faced and smiling as they hung on for dear life. Dead tired after climbing up the hill dozens of times, we’d trudge a couple of miles back home. When that hill became too tame, we walked even farther to Suicide Hill, a spectacular place where you could rarely see the bottom of the hill from the top, it was that steep in winter. Most kids today would be hard-pressed to climb to the top of that hill once let alone spend a day riding a sled up and down. In the very early spring, we looked forward to getting rid of our coats and tackling the old barn that was called the Stirling arena. We’d ride to the top of Stapley’s Hill next to the old sawmill, pedal down that hill as fast as we could and because all the snow had slid down the side of the building, we’d veer off the road to see how far we could ride up the side of the rink on the snowbanks before we came tumbling down. Will kids today have many of these same experiences? Unfortunately most won’t. We’re caught up in a world of technology with our derrieres glued to our seats staring blankly at screens exercising little more than our thumbs. A perfect toboggan ride down a steep hill can’t hold a candle to owning the latest, fastest phone or tablet filled with apps and games. Gadgets rule the roost and children’s health suffers. It’s easy to see why the local Health Units are trying to steer kids in a healthier direction. Thinking back, we rarely had more than one chubby kid in our class all through public school. I don’t think the same can be said today. Advertising Consultant Jennet Honey 613-966-2034, ext 509

The Good Earth: Dan Clost

Lifestyles - This past week I attended Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest horticultural tradeshow, Landscape Ontario Congress, held at the Congress Centre every January. To give you an idea of its size, it is the ďŹ fth largest show of its sort on the North American continent hosting some 600 exhibitors who manage to clutter up eight acres of showroom ďŹ&#x201A;oor. This means you need to arrive early or youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re walking over a mile just to get to the back door! This is the show where folks in the trade meet. While nongreen trade folk arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t turned away, Congress is a place where friendships are renewed, research and education are main draws but, more than anything, business is done. A lot of time, money and effort go into such an event, including on the part of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;customersâ&#x20AC;? and the atmosphere is friendly but very professional. Folks are expected to be well beyond Gardening 101 level and I have seen the odd â&#x20AC;&#x153;walkinâ&#x20AC;? sitting in a lecture completely overwhelmed by the technicality of the material being presented.

kind of person who genuinely enjoys and appreciates people. So there he was last night, with his daughters directing the show (insisting they were being â&#x20AC;&#x153;decisiveâ&#x20AC;?, not â&#x20AC;&#x153;bossyâ&#x20AC;?), and his wife grinning from ear to ear, as people praised him and told him about all the seniorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; discounts he could now claim. Twelve hours later, though, it is still the pictures that keep ďŹ&#x201A;ashing through my mind. They show heritage, dedication, and a whole lot of barbecuing. And yet I know that behind all those smiling, laughing faces there were moments when things werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t as rosy. There were moments when even a Roger, the nicest guy you could ever meet, lost his temper. There were moments when he and Heather truly didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what to do with some of their children. There were health problems and

family problems and all those things that none of us can escape. And yet, last night Roger and Heather stood with their arms around each other greeting their friends, beaming. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a life well-lived. The idea of forty plus years together with one person seems so daunting. Wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t that get boring? Most of us suffer wanderlust at one time or another. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re with the same person, day after day, with all these responsibilities, and we wonder, â&#x20AC;&#x153;What would life have been like if I had married my high school boyfriend?â&#x20AC;? Or we think, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I bet life would be a whole lot more exciting if I were with my co-worker, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always the life of the party, rather than my husband, who is always grumpy.â&#x20AC;? We want something new and something exciting, not something that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve

had everyday for sixteen years, through of our own.

Lifestyles - The best part of the sixty-ďŹ fth birthday party I attended last night, other than the Chinese buffet, was deďŹ nitely the slide show. Of course black and white pictures of a cherubic-looking boy are always adorable, but it was those late teen years pictures, when a rather familiar looking girl starting showing up, that made me smile. And so we watched through 45 years of hilarious photos, with the wedding, the babies, the cottage, and then more weddings and now lots more babies. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a rich life. When we ďŹ rst moved to Belleville, Roger became my husband Keithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mentor, going out for coffee with him every so often and talking about work and parenting and marriage.

me, that is a very good thing because that is why I go to the show, along with spending some time in our companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s booth. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t worry overly much, Gentle Reader; Canada Blooms in March is the show for you. If you garden, if you sit near a garden, if you sit in a house and look out at a garden, there will be something for you at Blooms. Check this column in about a month and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get gunned up on it. So why would I talk about a trade show in a gardening column? I believe it is vitally important that you realise how concerned your landscapers and nursery suppliers are about the business. We need to offer you the best available, not just in an effort to bury the local competition, but because that is what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re about. An industry professional, Perry Molema, told us that we are in the business of enhancing our customersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; lives. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m conďŹ dent in saying that truly is what most of us are about. Mind you, we do need to make a proďŹ t in order to stay in business and that is not a bad thing.

Along with the ďŹ&#x201A;oor exhibits, Landscape Ontario hosts numerous seminars, lectures and training sessions at this show covering new techniques, new tools, and new laws (especially new laws!) and new plants. Naturally Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a titch partial to the last one. Next time you chat with a professional green trade lad or lassie ask them about Congress. I think youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be surprised at the depth of their answer. Two other shows: BeneďŹ t concert Long time readers of The Good Earth are aware of my love of homegrown music. When a show can be combined with a fund-raising event, I do my best to attend. As it happens, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be involved in both of the following: Folk For Haiti: a fund-raiser for the children of Haiti who have become orphans due to natural catastrophes. The ďŹ rst set of musicfolk/gospel selections will be presented by The Lenses of which I am a member. The second set will be folk/soft rock as played by RandR, a Brighton duo who are incredibly smooth and talented. Please join

us at Trinity Saint Andrews United Church in Brighton, 2 p.m. on January 26. Every penny of the proceeds will be taken directly to Haiti. Dave Gunning: one of Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best singer songwriters from Pictou, Nova Scotia has agreed to give a show in aid of childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mental health. This young man is a musical story-teller who rivals any of our great Canadian songsters, from Lightfoot to Tyson to Sylvia and mostly John Allan Cameron. By the way, it was his song that won the national challenge. Dave has signiďŹ cantly reduced his performance fee. The show is a non-ticketed event and this is the only mainstream advertising you will see. Seating is limited so please contact me at dan. so we can keep track of numbers. Every penny of the proceeds will be divided between a family in dire need of mental health services for a child and the Trenton High School Emergency Fund.

Kerby will run again By Diane Sherman

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Centre Hastings â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Councillor Mike Kerby says he feels he still has work to finish for constituents of Centre Hastings. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Throughout this year, 2014, we must continue with infrastructure needs.â&#x20AC;? Kerby said roads are a high priority, noting Preston Road should be completed this year, and he would like to see â&#x20AC;&#x153;major preparation workâ&#x20AC;? on Hollowview Road, portions of the east and all of the west. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The single lane bridge on Sills Road has been a safety concern since I have been on council, and it is still not done.â&#x20AC;? Kerby states Sills is a busy road, used by gravel trucks, cars

and school buses often meeting at the bridge. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This should have high priority, whether or not we receive federal funding, this project has to move forward.â&#x20AC;? He wants to see ongoing sidewalk repair in the village and notes work on Durham Street south will be a â&#x20AC;&#x153;big project.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Completion of the Asset Management Plan allows us to set infrastructure and financial goals with better knowledge of our needs and capabilities,â&#x20AC;? Kerby said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Also, taking a workshop on council procedures earlier in the year, and updating procedural bylaws, has given council clear understanding of how they and the public should conduct business in the council chambers.â&#x20AC;?

He said a recent forum on the Disability Act was informative, â&#x20AC;&#x153;we know exactly what our responsibilities are regarding the act and venues under the municipal umbrella.â&#x20AC;? Kerby, a 35-year veteran with the fire department, said he is pleased with the interim fire chief and his strong policy on public education, fire prevention and training. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our fire fighters need to be trained also in medical response, extrication, and water rescue. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of dedication.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cost sharing with bordering municipalities wherever we can only makes sense,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Working with Madoc Township to develop business at Highway 7

and 62 is important for both of us. We need to work smart together. Everyone knows how commercial operations bring jobs and spin-off opportunities to the whole area.â&#x20AC;? Kerby noted the â&#x20AC;&#x153;jewelsâ&#x20AC;? of Centre Hastings: the skate park and arts centre, the many volunteers of the community, the development of the Amish and Mennonite communities and historic places throughout the municipality. Currently, Kerby sits on four committees: Quinte Conservation Authority, Personnel and Finance, Transportation, Parks, Recreation and Culture. He also sits on three boards: Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Hara Mill Homestead and Stirling and Centre Hastings arena boards.

Stirling Wellness Fair puts focus on health By Richard Turtle

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Stirling â&#x20AC;&#x201C; For some, it was an opportunity to reinforce recent New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resolutions while others were merely curious about the local marketplace as the Stirling Wellness Fair returned to the Eugene Burrell Hall last Saturday. The annual event, now in its third year, again offered a comprehensive exhibition of local health and wellness products and services as well as providing immediate access to answers to commonly asked health questions from the practitioners themselves. Organizer Dr. Dan Boyle was pleased with the turnout that, despite less than ideal driving conditions, saw a steady stream of visitors through much of the day Saturday. Open from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. with free admission to the public, the ďŹ ve-hour wellness fair featured representatives from more than a dozen area businesses, including those offering massage therapy, nutritional information and guidance,

chiropractic services, and reďŹ&#x201A;exology as well as makers and suppliers of health and beauty items ranging from food products and dietary supplements to lotions and creams. While trafďŹ c through the hall was lighter in the earlier part of the day, Boyle says, there was plenty of interest, particularly from residents in the immediate area, helping to make it another success. Show attendees were encouraged to visit all of the booths in order to validate their ballots which could then be entered into a draw for one of three prizes provided by local sponsors. Nutritional Consultant and Bio-energetics Practitioner Jill Detlor provides individualized nutritional coaching and says the Wellness Fair is an ideal venue for providers and clients alike offering a relaxed atmosphere and ample time for questions and answers. Nearby, Stirling-based Registered Massage Therapist Ashley Cooney was one of several practitioners offering their

services and providing ďŹ rst-hand information on the beneďŹ ts of various treatments. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been really good for me,â&#x20AC;? she says of the dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s activities where several individuals took advantage of her massage chair and her skills, noting that while weather may have limited the number of out of town visitors, trafďŹ c was steady as a result of strong attendance from residents of the village. Other exhibitors were equally pleased with the response generated by the show and the crowds who arrived despite the weather.

Shared services still a concern in Madoc Township

Continued from page 10

â&#x20AC;&#x153;All of this makes us look like we are not keeping up with our share of the bargain, when, in fact we are. We are not responsible for the rest of the building.â&#x20AC;? Council was discussing a letter received from Centre Hastings asking for â&#x20AC;&#x153;conďŹ rmation of continued ďŹ nancial support of the centre.â&#x20AC;? Council moved they will continue their support as originally agreed. Sharing services of the landďŹ ll site is another issue of contention for Madoc Township. The landďŹ ll committee was dissolved some months ago and an agreement was made that Centre Hastings and Madoc Township councils have â&#x20AC;&#x153;joint discussionsâ&#x20AC;? concerning the landďŹ ll site. Members of council said their last meeting

with Centre Hastings was before school let out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have been waiting for them to offer a date for the next meeting and we received a letter today offering us three options on how they want to proceed.

total of 15 individual entertainers, four of whom were new to the scene. Chair of the sessions, Leo Provost, commented midway through the afternoon, “The turnout has really been something else. There have been steady crowds throughout the last few years.” He went on to explain that all the money raised at the sessions is used by the Club to provide for community services.

Joy Thomas, one of 15 to entertain during the January 12 jam session hosted by members of the Marmora Crowe Valley Lions Club, began her turn on stage by singing “What’s Up?” which drew a number to the dance floor at the Community Centre.

Slippers is a real cutie, with spots and stripes. He was rescued when he was about 1 week old with his mother and brother from a garage, where the owner was going to dispose of them. Slippers loves to play with his best friend Ginny and his brother Terwilliger. Slippers also plays well alone. He likes to sit on your lap. We think that Slippers will be a small cat when he grows up as his mom is a very petite little lady. Slippers is just over 8 months old now and ready

Quinte West – A beautiful bronze statue of Roy Bonisteel will be the centrepiece of a tribute garden to be set up behind City Hall near the water. Angela Smylie got unanimous approval from city council for the concept, which has been approved by the Bonisteel family. “The family is wholeheartedly in favour of it,” Angela said. She said the Roy Bonisteel Tribute Garden committee is raising money to build the garden. They will need $130,000. Starting work in July the garden should be unveiled in September. The life-size bronze statue of Roy built by sculptor Brett Davis will be seated in a familiar pose to invite hands-on, climb-on, participation. “It’s a fantastic idea,” said Lesley Bonisteel, Roy’s daughter. “We are thrilled and honoured to take it on.” Landscape architect Andre Ypma added the garden will be 3,600 square

Hear the pounding of the drums By Steve Jessel

Entertainment - Colourful costumes, determined choreography and the rhythmic sounds of Japanese culture are invading Belleville and Kingston this month with the Quinte Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Theatre (QCT) presentation of Japanese taiko drum group Fubuki Daiko, and Ted Howe, artistic director for the QCT said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all about offering children and families access to the best and most engaging entertainment possible. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just sort of fed up with whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s passing as childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s entertainment these days... itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s essentially just foam heads,â&#x20AC;? Howe said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People are paying $25 a ticket to go and see what isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fully engaged theatre. In other words, the performers are on stage with these foam heads, but theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not reactive to the audience because theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re simply moving to cued dialogue and music... itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not really theatre.â&#x20AC;? Taking place on January 18 at 1p.m. in Belleville at Maranatha Church and January 22 at 7 p.m. at Sydenham Winnipeg-based taiko drum group Fubuki Daiko will visit Belleville and Kingston later this month.

Tickets are now on sale for both performances, and cost just $7.50 in advance and $10 at the door. Howe said the low ticket price was thanks to the generous donations of ther sponsors, and the fact that QTC is a non-proďŹ t organization with no paid staff.

He said he suspected they will not have too much problem raising funds for this project. Ron Hamilton said Roy was his neighbour and a Sidney resident, growing up on a nearby farm.

Protestors gather at farm to show support

News – Quinte West – Dozens of protestors gathered outside Frank Meyers farm on Monday and Tuesday to show their support for the farmer who has lost his land to the government. “We are here to support Frank,” said lead protestor Lisa Gibson from Morrisburg. She created a Facebook page (Save Frank and Marjorie Meyers Farm) which has drawn almost 20,000 friends including international support and attracted national media. “We have support from as far as Wales, Hungary, Oregon, Australia and Costa Rica,” she said. She said the contract Frank Meyers signed to allow the Department of National Defence to confiscate his 220

acres of land for their new Joint Task Force-2 was illegal. “It’s not a done deal,” she said. “The contract is illegal. The expropriation act is an act of parliament and is only enforced if the person consents to it.” Lisa says Frank was called to Toronto for a hearing in front of a judge and thought it was for an appeal. His wife Marjorie was in the hospital and he was already stressed. When he got in the room he was exhausted and felt that he signed under duress. “He has been fighting this for seven years,” Lisa added. “He finally signed the papers.” Lisa noted her group was here to give him support and were willing to stand in front of the machinery sent to tear

down his buildings. “This is a non-violent protest,” she adds. “But we will trespass.” Lisa says she has the utmost respect for the military and feels that many of them would support what her group is doing but are afraid to do so. “They would get reprimanded,” she said. As well as friends on Facebook her group has the support of Occupy Canada with a link to its webpage. “It’s not political,” she says. “We have appealed to leaders of all the political parties, but no one has answered us. The only answer we got was from Queen Elizabeth, who told us to con- Lisa Gibson talks to Frank Meyers (left) and Phil Ostoskie in the tractor on Frank takes his tractor beside his farm to retrieve tact the Governor General.

It was slated for demolition this week.

Area birth statistics dismay Legions continue their generosity health unit board

One of the latest recipients of the Legion’s generosity was the Stirling Food Bank. Royal Canadian Legion Br. 228 President George Jones and WWII Veteran Ted Morin present food bank volunteer Ruth McCrory with a cheque for $1,000.

lowered to almost 10 per cent. Staff assured they would increase efforts in promoting nonsmoking clinics and other health unit services for the newborn, including a new online course for mothers who might not be able to attend in-house clinics at various points in the area. On a good news theme, staffer Janet Moorhead-Cassidy reported on a news release from the provincial government on sharply increased allowances for families needing dental care help. She noted that the board had been active in advocating such assistance in resolutions and letters during the past year. The release stated that the qualifications for assistance un-

der existing programs would be raised from $20,000 to $25,000 and would also allow an additional $1,500 for each child. The release covered several other new developments which the board agreed as positive, to be “rolled out” during the coming months. A report from the builder on the new two-storey headquarters assured the project so far is “on time and on budget” with Royal Canadian Legion Br. 228 President George Jones and Veteran Ted Morin present the Stirling-Rawdon Chief Librarian with steelwork set to commence in a cheque for $600. Through fundraisers of its own, the Legion regularly contributes to various organizations throughout the March. community. As the board’s annual meeting for 2014, members also elected Jim McBride as chair and Terry McGuigan as vicechair. McBride succeeds Beth Campbell who had held the post for the past two years.

News – Belleville – The Quinte area is sharply out of sync with the rest of Ontario when it comes to some basic contemporary health data, a report on Reproductive Health and Prenatal Education showed at the board’s first meeting of The Hastings and Prince Edward Counties Health Unit for 2014 last Wednesday. The report, which essentially followed similar statistics and trends from several reports in recent years prompted an outburst of serious concern by board members, especially Coun. Jack Miller. He referred to figures about the unusually high incidence of smoking during pregnancy, low ages for mothers and low weights for newborn babies. “It is shocking to see the relation of our area to the rest of the province, especially in these areas,” he said. “Why are we so often on the wrong end of Ontario averages?” he asked. He and Coun. Paul Kyte drafted a motion to have a more detailed report on the problem, reviewing the agency’s efforts to correct such situation and look at all programs and how they are delivered. Both of them and other board members recalled other reports in recent years showing sharply negative trends or statistics in public health matters between the local area and the province. Staff assured that such a report would be presented during the year. What sparked general concern around the board table was not just the percentages, but the fact that they are substantial in size, in some cases almost double the provincial average. It impacted statistic areas of breastfeeding, birth weight, smoking during pregnancy, and births to mothers less that 20 years of age. In the latter category alone, the local statistic was just under eight per cent, while the Ontario average for the same period was just under four per cent. Several members expressed concern at the birth weight chart which showed more than 7.5 per cent of local births less than the health-base average of about 5.5 pounds, while the provincial average was just 6.5 per cent. “Does the pregnancy smoking statistic have an impact on that?’ one member asked. The presenter staff member, Nancy McGeachy, confirmed yes. “Nutrition and low income are also probable factors,” she suggested. Rates of smoking during pregnancy locally were assessed at up to 30 per cent in 2008 locally, trending downward to about 25 per cent in 2011, while the Ontario average was about 10.5 per cent in 2008 and

Giugoaz, a former 10th round selection of the Petes comes to Belleville sporting a 4.35 GAA and .861 save percentage in 20 appearances this season. “I don’t know that anything has changed because of the trade deadline,” Bulls head coach and general manager George Burnett said. “We made two or three moves during the early part of the season, moves that we felt were necessary to make ourselves a year or two younger as well as recoup most of or more than our draft allotment. We’re in good shape with a returning group and a young team that seems to be improving ... We’re still battling for that consistency but we’re improving every day.” Despite their early season struggles the Bulls remain just six points back of the Niagara IceDogs for the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference, and Burnett said the focus for the remainder of the season would be on improving the teams consistency with an eye to nabbing that eighth seed come playoff time. “We have struggled to put multiple wins together which is why we’re still
