Cecchin named new chief of Stirling-Rawdon By Richard Turtle

News - Stirling - The municipality welcomed a new police chief earlier this week as ofďŹ cials from the Stirling-Rawdon Police Services Board announced the hiring of Canadian Policing veteran Dario Cecchin. The announcement was made Monday afternoon at the emergency services building by PSB Chair Tara Dyer, who was joined by several other municipal ofďŹ cials in welcoming the new head of the StirlingRawdon Police Service. Cecchin, who addressed the crowd of about 30 that included residents, municipal staff members, police and emergency ofďŹ cials as well as County Reeve Rick Phillips, says he is grateful for the opportunity.

News - Marmora - At the May 20 Marmora and Lake Council meeting, councillors heard a recommendation from Parks and Recreation Manager Curtis Trimble who forwarded a suggestion to council regarding possible upgrades to the lighting at the fairgrounds at a cost of $9,446.80, with the funds to be taken from the Parks Reserve Fund. The project, which is one the newly elected fair board would like to see in place, was supported, with Reeve Terry Clemens

asking if the work could be completed in time for the coming Marmora Crowe Valley Lions Jamboree, which is scheduled for June 12 to 15.   The municipality will soon have a new vehicle on the road, that being a 2014 half-ton, quad cab, four-wheel-drive pickup. The recommendation for the purchase, which was made by Manager of Transportation Services Kevin Hart, was supported by council members who agreed with Hart that the lowest of four bids, that being $27,740 from Maciver Dodge, which was within the budgeted amount of $28,000, should be accepted. The emerald ash borer, as mentioned in information supplied by Quinte Conservation, could make an appearance in this area within the next five to ten years. Council members moved to accept Quinteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s offer of assistance as to how the situation should be handled, with their Forestry Manager to attend a future meeting. With June just days away, Reeve Clemens declared the coming month to be Seniorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Month, saying in response to a letter received from the Minister responsible for Seniorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Affairs, that he would welcome their promotional material relating to events and this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s theme, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Aging Without Boundaries: 30 Years of Celebrating Seniors.â&#x20AC;?

here we might as well close shop. And that applies to all the different communities around here.” The history of Thomasburg shown on the new sign paints an intriguing picture of the hamlet, beginning with a young surveyor, Thomas Clare, who first settled at the spring in Thomasburg in 1830. The arrival of several other families headed by men named Thomas led to the naming of the village. “In 1878,” the sign relates, “the hamlet had a population of 200 and had become a grow-

ing concern, with two general stores, a carriage shop, a blacksmith, a tannery, a potash works, a large cheese factory, an Orange Hall and four churches! Later a millinery shop, two boot and shoe shops, a grist mill, a shingle mill, two dressmakers, a doctor and three hotels were added.” Violetta Welsh, referred to by Ms. Martin as the “driving force” behind the historical sign project moved to Thomasburg five years ago and began researching information on the hamlet at the Tweed Heritage Centre. She re-

marked, “We are a small committee but we’re powerful. Future plans? We’d like to turn the spring into a park and have another historical sign there. We want to rejuvenate Thomasburg.” Other contributions by the beautification committee include a bench for the cemetery and flowerpots throughout the hamlet.

News - Stirling - On delivering the current municipal budget StirlingRawdon Mayor Rodney Cooney admitted it has been “a challenging two years,” citing decreases in provincial funding and other factors, but added council was able to put together a budget that would result in only a minimal tax increase. In a public meeting to review the budget, scheduled immediately before council’s regular meeting, Cooney provided some highlights and thanked staff and department heads for making the necessary adjustments. The mayor explained that departments had been asked to cut 20 per cent from their budgets and there were “extensive reviews” during the process. And in most cases, he says, significant cuts were made. The Fire Department will see a decrease of 10 per cent this year, while Roads will be down 17 per cent, the library down 11 per cent and administration down 12 per cent. The police budget will see an increase of about seven per cent, he says. But despite snow removal costs amounting to $80,000 more than planned, a significant increase in the municipality’s OMERS contribution and “a lot of road blowouts this year and a lot of work to be done,” Cooney says there are major projects under way including the completion of the Church Street project, replacing the McGee Road bridge and the installation of water meters. The budget also allows for approximately $245,000 to be placed in reserves for future years. Cooney also says the recent purchase of a small road resurfacing machine, while a capital expense, should pay for itself several times over in the coming months. The patching machine is designed to handle smaller resurfacing jobs, Cooney says, and there are numerous instances throughout the municipality that would be prohibitively expensive to contract out. Recently delivered, the machine cost $15,000 and is expected to be put to work regularly, he says. In its regular meeting, council agreed to reduce speed limits through the village and near the school with a new bylaw that will see speeds reduced to 40 kilometres an hour on portions of West Front Street, as well as Allan, Rosco and St. James Streets south of West Front. Council also received a letter from Premier Kathleen Wynne, sent in late April, thanking council for voicing its concerns over the proposed closing of Kemptville College. In the letter, a response to council’s motion to oppose the closing of the school, she notes, “we recently announced that we are providing $2 million to the University of Guelph to ensure it can continue to

Traffic jams and wandering livestock

By Judy Backus

News - Marmora - Reeve Terry Clemens opened the May 20 Council meeting with a comment about the traffic jam which had occurred on #4 the previous day, that being Victoria Day. Ongoing construction, which has resulted in the closure of one of the lanes on the Crowe River bridge, meant long lineups with eastbound holiday traffic stretching back to the outskirts of town. Clemens said he hoped this would be the worst example of a traffic jam for the summer

season as the contractor has indicated that both lanes will be open for July and August. Bob Maas, a resident on Deloro Road, appeared as a delegate, bringing two concerns to the attention of council. His appearance had been prefaced by letters relating to each. The first, a problem going back four years, had to do with his neighbour’s livestock damaging his property and the fact that the neighbour was disputing the boundary. As Maas put it, “A farmer, is liable to

keep his livestock off of other people’s property, by whatever means … The police did tell him to keep his animals confined when they ate my garden off.” Maas, who, in the past made repairs to the fence, had been told that in order for the official fence viewers to become involved, both parties must be in agreement as to the boundary. As CAO Ron Chittick later explained, it is apparent that is not the case, and until they do, the fence viewers have no jurisdiction.

Maas went on to express his concern about three unlicensed and very large dogs, owned by the same neighbour, that frequently stray onto his property, suggesting that the dog catcher system needed to be addressed. His feeling was that a time dated photograph should be sufficient to prove the dogs were not on their own property. Council members agreed that the problem existed for others as well, and that further investigation, including a legal opinion on the matter, should be undertaken.

Quinte Conservation to provide Risk Management and Inspection Services By Judy Backus

News - Marmora - Reeve Terry Clemens welcomed Keith Taylor, Source Protection Manager for Quinte Conservation Authority, to the May 20 Council meeting; Taylor presented details of a comprehensive proposal for the authority to act as the agent to “carry out enforcement under Part IV of the Clean Water Act, 2006, within the municipality.” Background information indicated that Marmora and Lake had received a $75,000 grant “to cover our costs of implementing the

two Source Protection Plan Policies established in the Municipality.” An additional $15,000 in funding could also be available. Taylor told council members that the Source Protection Plan had been reviewed by Ministry of Environment staff which is now preparing an approval package to go to the Minister. Everything, he explained is currently on hold owing to the coming Provincial election, but the package should be on the Minister’s desk shortly after that, with an anticipated approval date by the end

of the summer “at the earliest.” Following the meeting, Chittick explained, “There is a six- or eightmonth period to get in a position to implement the policies, so the agreement Council approved today with Quinte, provides that they will be the Source Protection Risk Management Official and Inspector and act as an agent on behalf of the Municipality of Marmora and Lake for both the Quinte Source Protection and the Lower Trent Source Protection Plan.” He concluded, “They are going to work with us to make sure that we are in a position to implement Representatives of the Marmora Fire Department, Greg Shire, Andy Cox, and Ryan Nugent, were on hand at Memorial Park on May 24 where they collected funds for the Canada Day fireworks, promoted fire prevention, sold smoke detectors, provided tours of the gleaming fire truck and handed out mini-fire helmets to interested children, among them Thalis and Ayla Brokenshire.

all the policies that need to be implemented for the Deloro system and the Marmora water system.” When asked if there were any major changes necessary, Chittick responded, “Fortunately there are no significant impacts on property owners in either the Deloro wellhead protection area or the Marmora intake area. There are some five-year inspections of septic systems required and there are a couple of risk management plans that have to be put in place but it’s not a significant impact on anyone …” Council members agreed with the staff recommendation and, on a motion by Deputy-reeve Rita Cimprich, voted to enter the agreement.

Grand opening of Nayler’s Common Observation Platform

News - Marmora - The Marmora and Lake Environmental Advisory Committee invites the community to a grand opening and ribboncutting ceremony to celebrate the newly installed viewing platform at Nayler’s Common Wetland and Trails. Festivities will commence Saturday, June 7, at 10 a.m., beginning at Drummond Park on South Maloney Street.

The Ansari X Prize was for a low-cost reusable spacecraft capable of sub-orbital flight, and the follow-on Google Lunar X Prize is more of the same. Toys for the boys. The $10 million Tricorder X Prize, announced in 2012, is a bit closer to the mark, as it would reward the development of an instant diagnostic device like the one used by Leonard “Bones” McCoy, the Chief Medical Officer in the original Star Trek series. But the Longitude 2014 Prize is the real deal. It marks the 300th anniversary of the first Longitude Prize, when the British parliament offered £20,000 (a sum comparable to £10 million now) to anyone who could devise a method for finding a ship’s position at sea. Latitude—its distance North or South of the equator—could easily be found by measuring the height of the sun or the Pole Star above the horizon, but there was no good way of determining its East-West position: its longitude. The solution was obvious in principle. You just set your clock at noon at your port of departure, note the time it reads when the sun is highest wherever you are, and the difference between noon on the clock and noon at your present position will tell you your longitude. But your clock must stay accurate during long sea voyages. They had good pendulum clocks in the 18th century, but pendulums didn’t work very well on a rolling, pitching ship. It took a long time to build a chronometer that stayed accurate enough (gaining or losing only a few seconds per month) to let mariners calculate their longitude to within one or two nautical miles, but by 1765 John Harrison, a clockmaker from Lincolnshire, had done the job. He died a rich man, and he deserved his reward: thousands of ships were saved from shipwreck and hundreds of thousands of lives were spared in the century that followed.

By Terry Bush

The new Longitude Prize is all about saving human life (or improving it) on a very large scale. There are six “challenges” on the Longitude Committee’s list, and only one of them will be chosen for the prize. They are: Flight - How can we fly without damaging the environment? Food - How can we ensure everyone has nutritious sustainable food? Antibiotics - How can we prevent the rise of resistance to antibiotics? Paralysis - How can we restore movement to those with paralysis? Water - How can we ensure everyone has access to safe and clean water? Dementia - How can we help people with dementia live independently for longer? When you read the actual “job descriptions” of these challenges, it’s clear that some thought went into it. Consider the antibiotics challenge, for example: “Clinicians often prescribe broad spectrum antibiotics to sick patients because doctors have to act quickly on imperfect information. These methods put selective pressure on microbes to evolve resistance to antibiotics …. “The challenge … will be to create a cheap, accurate, rapid, and easy-to-use test for bacterial infections that will allow doctors and nurses all over the world to better target their treatments, administering the right antibiotics at the right time. Point-of-care test kits will allow more targeted use of antibiotics, and an overall reduction in mis-diagnosis and prescription. This will ensure that the antibiotics we have now will be effective for longer.” So you could win this challenge with a working Tricorder—two Prizes for the price of one?—and the breakthrough idea need not even come from the medical field. As BBC Director-General Tony Hall said when the prize was announced: “There might be another modern-day John Harrison somewhere out there … and they may not even know that they’re a scientist.” It’s a kind of crowd-sourcing, and none the worse for that. The voting to decide which challenge gets the nod opened on May 22 on the BBC Horizon web site, and closes on June 25. Unfortunately, voting is restricted to British residents, but the prize is open to everybody in the world. And maybe there are five other governments out there that would like to put up $10 or $20 million for a solution to one of the other five challenges.


Less government, not more Dear Editor, We have never written a Letter to the Editor before; however, we must respond to Mr. Whittaker’s comments of May 22, 2014. While criticism of Mr. Hudak is fair, he would have done better also to point out the ten McGuinty years of ever increasing provincial deficits, the eHealth fiasco, the absolute disgrace of the two gas plants purely to buy provincial seats in the Legislature, and, of course, ORNGE. Oh, but wait, that would not support his arguments against the Conservatives! And has he heard the Ontario Liberals talking about borrowing from the Bank

of Canada? We haven’t. His final sentence is utter stupidity! We need less government, not more. The way of more and more government merely adds less and less opportunity, incentive and the wherewithal for us to grow and prosper. Or does Mr. Whittaker not realize that mighty Ontario is now a have-not province? We would posit that this is not a result of less government and the growth of our manufacturing and industrial strength, but of more government and the precipitous decline in our manufacturing and industrial sector. And we need leaders, not politicians,

for the truth is that they are all the same, except for the colour of their ties and campaign posters, and each government, whether provincial or federal continues to prove the point. As electors, we are so tired of their (non)performance with no prospects of improvement. No wonder the young voters are apathetic. We hear much blahblah-blah from the three “leaders” but no vision, no heart for seeing Ontario progress and move ahead. What a bunch!

Editorial - I blinked, and I missed it. Either that or there is some kind of Rip Van Winkle thing going on at the moment and I just woke up. It seems like only a couple of weeks ago, snow could still be found in the woods around our property. The furnace was still blasting and things were cold and damp. We couldn’t wait for spring. Then, in the blink of an eye, the black flies turned up, then the mosquitoes and now the dragonflies are out finishing up the black flies. Summer seems to have arrived this week. I’m always a little taken aback how quickly trees can go from having no leaves to being full-figured. No grass one week turned into cutting the grass twice last week. If it wasn’t for the fact that hockey is still on, one might think it’s July. But hockey is still on and I think I speak for most Canadians when I say, enough is enough. It’s too late in the year for hockey. How hard would it be to start the hockey season the second week of September and have it finish up by the end of May. Three-out-of-five series for the first two rounds. No more than one day off between games and voila, done by the May 24 weekend with a lot of happy campers. Folks are excited about hockey in the fall and have better things to do than sit in front of a television set at 1 p.m. on a Saturday afternoon in May and June. While it may now seem to be summer after a winter that refused to die, a few words with a local farmer will soon set you straight. “Got part of the seeding done but can’t get into the low spots. Too much water around.” Now part of a farmer’s job description has always been complaining about the weather. For the past few years, we haven’t had enough rain. Last year we had almost the right amount of rain and this year, maybe we had a little too much snow on the ground for a little too long. If the crops get in on time, all will be good … especially if that last bit of corn sees the combine in the next week to free up that field of heavy clay for planting. Despite the balmy temperatures, I can tell it’s still spring because the usual suspects are out running over turtles for fun. What joy a person could experience by killing such a benign creature is beyond me. As I’ve said before, it’s not like turtles dart out in front of vehicles. A squirrel or chipmunk, I could understand. They can’t seem to make up their minds at times. I hit a squirrel a couple of weeks ago and of course felt bad about it. Saw it running towards the road out of the corner of my eye, I slowed down, it ran in front of the car, made it half way across the other lane and then for some reason known only to the squirrel, it doubled back and ran right under my front left tire. Not the way most people would want to start their day and probably not what the squirrel had in mind either. Birds, squirrels, chipmunks, frogs, if you’ve driven a car, there’s a very good chance you’ve hit something along the way. Maybe you’ve nailed one of those daredevil robins that like to fly across the road at an altitude of less than a metre. One would think after a couple hundred generations of dealing with vehicles, robins would have figured out that flying at a higher altitude might pave the way to longevity. But turtles? With a clear field of vision, it’s almost impossible to hit a turtle unless it’s one of this year’s models that resembles a clump of dirt on the highway. So, this leads me to believe that most of the people running over turtles for fun are insecure girly-boys. They need to kill something to prove to themselves they have power over life and death and that makes them manly-men. To which I say, how manly are you if you’re using a truck or car as a weapon? Who’s braver, a person who squashes a turtle using a truck or a person who parks their vehicle by the side of the road, gets out, waits for traffic to subside or stop and picks up a snapper and carries it to the side of the road. Seems like a no-brainer to me. And it’s obviously a no-brainer to lots of other people judging by the number of folks I’ve seen stopping in the past couple of years to help turtles cross the street. Old people, young people, women and men seem to understand the gravity of the situation and the tide is starting to turn. Turtles need help if they’re going to survive in this province. With more and more roads and trails being built and more habitat being lost every day, most species of turtles in our province are now threatened. That’s why many folks and a few municipalities are putting out signs warning of turtle crossing areas and many small towns now have volunteers bringing injured turtles to the Kawartha Turtle Trauma Centre in Peterborough, <>. Seriously, how hard is it to put a pair of gloves in your car and stop and move a turtle across the road in the direction it was headed. If you’re a little squeamish especially about snappers, a shovel will work just fine. Thirty seconds to save a life, that’s all it takes. And it takes about the same amount of time to call the MNR tips line (1-877-TIPS-MNR (847-7667) to report someone killing turtles. Don’t think about it, just do it. Your grandkids and great-grandkids will thank you for it.

Fun Fair draws hundreds to arena By Richard Turtle

News - Stirling - Children of all ages arrived at the Stirling arena and curling club last week to have a little fun and raise some money for Stirling Public School as the annual Fun Fair returned after a brief hiatus. There were games of luck and chance as well as bouncy castles, snacks and goodies, sales tables and a live auction, with proceeds destined for school upgrades and projects. Stirling Public School Principal Suzanne Cholasta says the Thursday evening event was very well attended with its success thanks to the efforts of school council members and supporters as well as an army of volunteers.

Donated items were organized and provided thanks to a long list of sponsors, later to be sold to the highest bidder by the eveningâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s auctioneer, Meggan Dunlop, while more tables of bargains were available nearby. And it was the quieter area of the Fun Fair as games and physical activities in the arena kept dozens of excitable youngsters occupied, many of them staying to play for hours.

This is Bitzi - she is a lovely gold spotted tabby. Bitzi allows people to pet her at feeding time only. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re lucky you can steal a pat while she sleeps silently in dreamland. Bitzi might need time and patience to feel comfortable with a dog. She will probably become more affectionate in a home with fewer cats than her current foster home. Please help Bitzi find her forever home. Bitzi may indeed find that humans can be her best friends once she is in her forever home with fewer felines to interact with. Please remember kitten season is here and we desperately need loving foster homes so we can rescue some of the helpless ones and find them loving forever homes too. Without foster homes we are unable to rescue and the cats and kittens and they will have to be returned to an undeserved life outside without the love and care they should have. We are also looking for barns, out buildings or very patient accepting homes for feral cats that need to be relocated. They are spayed/ neutered. We will trap them and bring to you. We do not charge an adoption fee but ask for a donation. Thank you for your consideration.

Kiwanis ducky dump sends kids to camp By Diane Sherman

Lifestyles - Madoc - Two children from local elementary schools will be able to go to summer camp thanks to supporters of the Kiwanis annual ducky race. In a meeting after the event, members explained they have paid for one child to go to Camp Quin-Mo-Lac on Moira Lake; proceeds from this event, totalling around $550, will support another child. One student from Madoc Public and one from Madoc Township school will be selected by the teachers and staff at each school for the special week at camp. Ongoing projects by Kiwanis members focus on helping local youth.

Farmers’ Market is now open through to Thanksgiving

News - Marmora - Although it has been under way for a couple of weeks, the grand opening of the Marmora Farmers’ Market took place on a picture perfect May 24 when 15 vendors arrived with a wide selection of goods from baking, meat, preserves and flowers to the first homegrown treats of the season including rhubarb, asparagus and spinach. Cliff Andrews was on the scene as well, providing background music for the event which included a bouncy castle and face painting for the children. Andrews, who performs at four other markets within the area, said he plays a “little bit of everything” and “tries to keep everybody happy.” As the season progresses, the market, which is open from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. every Saturday from now to Thanksgiving, will see additional vendors arriving to sell their homegrown produce.

Gateway Community Health Centre thanks volunteers News – Tweed - On Friday, May 23, Gateway Community Health Centre hosted its fifth annual volunteer luncheon to thank its volunteers for supporting their various programs in Tweed and area. Lyn Linton, Executive Director at Gateway CHC says, “Our volunteers make an invaluable contribution to the programs that we offer at the Centre. For many positions at our centre, there is only one staff member available to lead the activities. Our volunteers enable us to expand programming and increase participant numbers for the programs.” According to statistics, over six million people volunteer in Ontario to make their communities a better place to live. From April 2013 to March 2014, Gateway’s 34 volunteers donated 1547.5 hours of their time at

the many programs designed to support community members. These volunteers assist at regularly scheduled programs such as Cradling Arms and Playgroup, Babies and Beyond, Living Well with Chronic Conditions, Community Garden, Income Tax Service, Tutoring Support, After School Program, Pole Walking, Kindergarten Readiness, and the monthly Nutritional/Cooking Sessions. Occasionally the volunteers are asked to help at special Community Events such as the yearly Flu Clinic in October or poinsettia distribution for the Jazz Ensemble. The volunteers are always willing to help with these special short-term programs when asked. Four volunteers contributed a total of 116.5 hours working during the day, evenings, and

volunteers are instrumental in supporting Gateway’s values and serve as role models for the participants in the various programs. Gateway is fortunate to have high school students volunteering in order to fulfill their Community Service hours in order to graduate. During 2013/14, 10 students volunteered at the youthrelated programs: Tutoring Support, After School, and Kindergarten Readiness. Due to flexibility with class schedules, two college students were able to volunteer at several programs offered by the Centre. These students are outstanding role models for the youth in our communities, leading by example and enthusiastically participating in the program activities. They truly embrace the Community Health slogan, ‘Every One

Matters.’ Volunteering can become an intrinsic part of one’s life as individuals support the community they call home. Research has shown that volunteers themselves benefit from volunteering as they gain a sense of personal achievement by giving back to their community. The volunteers also develop new skills as they take on different challenges, increase their employment opportunities, take pride in sharing their knowledge and abilities, meet others socially in the community and at the same time, have fun! If you are interested in volunteering with Gateway Community Health Centre, please contact Darlyne Pennycook, Volunteer Coordinator at 613-478-1211, ext 239 or email dpennycook@

SFSC President Joanne Card welcomed the approximately 100 guests, speaking briefly about the season’s successes and the club members’ contributions before introducing O’Brien and later announcing winners of this year’s skating awards. Describing the year as both a busy and rewarding one, Card says there were many notable accomplishments over the course of the season including the individual highlights in competition and tests, the installation of a new sound system, the highly successful Showcase and the resulting donation of “a truckload of food,” to the Community Cupboard in Stirling.

And, he says, there are plenty of avenues to explore as a professional skater, from coaching to touring on cruise ships, and he intends to remain a part of it. A recent highlight, he says, was in competing for Canada at an international event in Romania. O’Brien was recognized by the club with a Special Achievement award.

Having competed in sectional, provincial, national and international competition, O’Brien plans to continue his training and skating in Montreal, telling the crowd he has realized many opportunities as a result of his involvement in the sport. “I’m very lucky,” he says, noting he has had much support from friends, family and his fellow skaters in pursuing his passion.

Dracup scoops up ice cream business By Richard Turtle

Business - Stirling - When a local small business, owned and operated by a student through the summers, came up for grabs, it was another student who agreed to take over the reins. And as a first-time business owner and operator, and still a teen, Brittany Dracup is expecting to learn a lot this summer. But she’s also optimistic her experience will be a positive one. Dracup recently took over The Scoop, an ice cream shop located on West Front Street across from the theatre, occupies a small workspace where cones and milkshakes are served through a window to the sidewalk. It was hardly her intention for summer employment, she says, but when the opportunity came up, Dracup gave it some thought, and then agreed. Previously owned and operated by Megan Belanger, The Scoop has been in business for three summers, the first of which Dracup spent as a part-time employee. “I always liked it,” she says of the job. During a visit, Dracup explains, she and Belanger were on the patio and “she just looked over and said, ‘Hey kid, wanna buy it?’ and I said, ‘I dunno. Maybe.’” The maybe soon became a yes and Dracup has already opened up shop, with varied afternoon and evening hours until school is over, with plans to be open from noon until 8 p.m. daily during the summer. A high school student herself, with numerous other extra-curricular activities on the go, she admits the workload will take some juggling, but Dracup is prepared for that as well. For now, she says, she intends to hire a single employee to share the anticipated

workload this summer with hopes of relying, at least a little bit, on the experience of the previous owner. “She says she’s going to miss it,” Dracup says of Belanger, adding her former boss is always welcome back, whether for an ice cream or to provide a little timely advice. Dracup admits several of Belanger’s business practices have already been adopted, including plans to stay open later on soccer nights (Tuesday and Thursday) and providing the same quality and range of products customers have grown accustomed to. And when the summer is over, Dracup intends to return to St. Theresa for her Grade 12 and continue to pursue her many interests.

used there, will be reopened for public viewing as well. “We need to catalogue all the train-related [items] and as you can see there’s a lot to go through,” she notes. Items in storage range from hand tools to railroad signs and include a large records desk and a bench from the station’s old waiting room. So far, she adds, support has been readily available but many remain unaware of the

project or its scope. “It’s a collective thing,” she says of the many individuals involved, adding there is still room for a few more. “Right now we’re looking for someone who refinishes furniture,” she says, adding there are many other artists and artisans already taking part. Those who have their items up for sale are required to pay rent and commit to one day

per week working at the store. In exchange, they retain all of the money from their own sales, Wilkinson explains. And with the absence of a local historical society, which disbanded in recent years, Wilkinson says the goal is to re-establish an interest in local history while promoting other attractions from Bancroft to Picton and all stops in between.

Joan Wilkinson is one of several individuals behind the new Stirling venture, Antiques, Art and Collectables at the Station. The former transportation link, and now home of the Stirling Rotary Club, also features the local tourist information centre.

News - Stirling - Although now out of service as a transportation link, the historic Grand Trunk train station is continuing to offer a look back at local history while celebrating many present day attractions in the area. As a result of the coming together of a group of artists, historians and antique collectors, the station has reopened this spring as a multi-faceted warehouse of memories and information. “It’s not just one thing, it’s many things,” says Joan Wilkinson, who is one of several individuals involved in the collective venture officially known as Antiques, Art and Collectables at the Station. As well as offering items for sale, ranging from original artwork to antiques, toys and clothes, the station is also the home to a tourist information centre with regular hours and listings of events and points of interest as well as maps and brochures from throughout the region. Open from Wednesday to Sunday, hours may be extended as the season continues, she says. The site is also home of the Stirling Farmers’ Market, with the antique shop’s official opening coinciding with the launch of a new market season on May 3. Currently, Wilkinson notes, the station is open to visitors from Wednesday to Friday from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m., Saturday from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. and Sundays from 1-3 p.m. And traffic has been steady, she says, with visitors so far this year arriving for any one of a number of different reasons, including as part of special events or bus tours. Some have travelled a significant distance simply to see the iconic architecture, while others have an interest in local history. “A lot of people don’t come here to shop at all. They just want to have a look around,” she says. A subcommittee of the municipality’s Economic Development Committee has also been struck to explore the possibilities of expanding on the idea, Wilkinson notes. And while the store is well stocked with inventory, and fully operational, there is still plenty of work left to do, Wilkinson adds.

plishment. Michelle has volunteered at several youth-related programs: Tutoring Support, After School, Kindergarten Readiness and the Jazz Camp. Michelle has also assisted the dietitian at the Community Kitchen and with nutrition programming. In the Kindergarten Readiness program, Michelle’s encouraging manner had the three and four year olds eager to try the many new activities that were offered. She has helped students in the Tutoring Support program develop a better understanding of mathematical concepts and reading strategies. Her ability to simplify the concepts and her constant encouragement helped students to develop a feeling of “I can do this!” When working with the After School program, her leadership skills were evident as she instructed older students on safe food preparation techniques for preparing their snacks. Michelle’s friendly and outgoing manner is appreciated by group participants, GCHC staff, and other volunteers.

Brighton Speedway race results say for the lead on a lap 12 restart and led the final eight laps to earn his second victory in as many races. Ramsay took the lead on lap two from Jason McCrory. The lead grew to half a lap when McCrory did a full 360 in turn four and the rest of the field slowed to avoid. But without any contact, the race stayed green and Ramsay checked out at the front. But everything was erased on lap 12 when McCrory drew a caution after a broken tie rod forced him to a stop on the backstretch. Ramsay was pitted head-to-head with Anderson on the front row of the restart. The battle lasted less than a lap as Ramsay suffered a flat right rear; ending his hopes of second feature win. Anderson led the final eight laps despite Wade Purchaseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best attempt to take over the lead. Devon Kippen drove to an impressive third-place run. Anderson and Jamie Marshall were the Vanderlaan Building Supplies heat winners. Hough dethrones Greer for Comp 4 win The script started to look familiar in the Billâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Johns Comp 4 feature, but Terry Hough changed the ending. Hough jumped out to an early race lead after starting sixth and cruised to his first feature win of the year. It looked as though Hough would mix it up with Brady Greer and Rich Sanders for the third straight week. However, the latter two drivers got together and were forced to restart at the tail of the field on lap five. Riley Greer challenged Hough on the restart, but the No.32 was too strong. Sanders tried to work his way back through the field, but could only make it to third over the 15-lap distance. Â Nathan Day finished second for the first time this season. Riley Greer and Sanders were the heat race winners. MacGregor wins second Stinger feature Del MacGregor started fifth and quickly worked his way to the front of the Quinte Septic Stingers 12-lap main event. MacGregor was under pressure only momentarily on a lap nine restart, and drove to his second win in as many starts. The race was red flagged on lap two when Megan Golden made contact with another car on the front stretch and was turned sideways. Golden made hard, head-on contact with the outside wall before coming to a stop. The car momentarily rolled on to its side before coming to a rest on all fours. Golden did not suffer any injuries. MacGregor and Geoff York picked up heat race wins.

Sports - Brighton â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Steve Baldwin rode the high side of the racetrack all the way to victory lane at Brighton Speedway on Saturday night, presented by Campbellford Chrysler and UCB Canada. Baldwin stole the race lead from Caley Weese on lap eight in the Vanderlaan Building Supplies Pro Late Model main event. He never surrendered it throughout the final 22 circuits. Charlie Sandercock was Baldwinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top challenger as he anchored the second position on three restarts after the halfway mark. But with Baldwin restarting in his preferred outside line each time, Sandercock could not gain enough momentum on the bottom to make a pass for the lead. In the closing laps, it looked as though lapped cars might play a part in deciding the finish, but Baldwin negotiated the traffic effortlessly and cruised to victory. Last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s winner, Phil Potts maneuvered his way through the field from his ninth starting spot to score a thirdplace finish. Weese and Adam Turner completed the top-five. Brandon Mowat and David MacDonald won the Motosports of Trenton qualifying heats.

A caution filled race on a very dry slick track saw Andrew Hennessy steal the race lead from Dan Ferguson using the top lane on lap eight. Minor spins brought out three late race cautions and plagued Hennessyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to pull away from Ferguson. On a lap 20 restart, Ferguson tried a crossover move entering turn one to duck beneath Hennessy for the lead. Ferguson was forced to come to a near stop in the centre of the corner to avoid contact with Hennessy, and the rest of the field was forced to react. Several cars spun to avoid a wreck while Paul Milligan went for a wild ride over the berm in turn two and into the creek. Ferguson went to the pits for repairs, while Hennessy appeared to suffer rearend damage that ended his night. The lead was left to Whaley who had been running in the top-five prior to the wreck. Whaley successfully glued himself to the bottom of the track and neither Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Blenis nor third-place runner Ryan Scott could make a pass on the high side. Mike Lucas finished fourth, while Ferguson fought back to fifth. Scott and Ferguson earned Deerhaven Farm and Garden heat race wins.

Flying Club celebrates with Hall of Famer

By Richard Turtle

Events - Stirling - There are a lot of people who love to fly, but perhaps none as much as Fern Villeneuve. The Oak Hills Flying Club celebrated its 50th anniversary last weekend joined by pilots, aircraft enthusiasts and the club’s most distinguished member, Villeneuve, who has been flying for more than 60 years and was named to the Canadian Aviation Hall of Fame in 2006. Villeneuve says his 30-year membership with the Oak Hills club came to an end about a year ago and only because he moved from the area to Guelph, Ontario. But he was more than happy to hop in his plane and make the flight from his new home airport last weekend to join in the celebration. Oak Hills Flying Club President Rob Burns says the midday Sunday event was extremely well attended and the club was privileged to have Villeneuve among those in attendance. “He started the Golden Hawks in 1959, to mark 50 years of flight in Canada,” Burns explains of the club’s special guest while pointing out pictures on the walls, adding Villeneuve spent a storied career and attained the rank of Lieutenant Colonel while with the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF). A 32-year member of the RCAF, Villeneuve is now well into his 80s and remains both modest about his aerial accomplishments and passionate about planes, conceding much of what transpired was a matter of course as a

Fern Villeneuve has been flying for more than 60 years, spending 30 of those as a member of the Oak Hills Flying Club. Villeneuve, who founded the RCAF aerobatic team The Golden Hawks, was inducted into the Canadian Aviation Hall of Fame in 2006.

CFB Trenton pilot doubles as country music star

By Stephen Petrick

Entertainment - Belleville - John Landry has a pretty successful history as a country musician, but now that he’s a search and rescue pilot based at CFB Trenton his career is really taking off. Landry has just released his fourth studio album, and over the last 15 years he has garnered numerous music awards, including Juno nominations for Top Country Male Artist of the Year, Album of the Year and Video of the Year. The new album is called Don’t Look Back and it’s a somewhat fitting title

for an artist whose life has taken many interesting twists and turns. Unlike previous albums, like his debut record Forever Took Too Long, this album was completed while he was juggling employment with the Canadian Forces as a member of 424 Search & Rescue Squadron, which flies a Griffin helicopter. At one point Landry worked exclusively as a country musician. He even lived for part of the last decade in Nashville, where he worked many showcase events that he would invite

record company executives to, hoping to land a big American contract. But, fully aware of the changes in the music industry—and the fact that only mega-famous artists seem to draw strong record sales—he decided to come home to Canada and train for another profession; one that would be more ideal for he and his then-girlfriend (and now wife) to raise a family on. “My best friend Rich Baker [who collaborates on songs with Landry] came to me one day and said you know the air force has opened up a pilot

program … I said, what the hell, let’s go to a recruitment centre.” Landry had long been interested in a career in the air force. Before launching a music career, he joined the infantry in Montreal as a teenager. That job took him on the path to become a critical care flight medic, a job that allowed him to travel around the world. If the recruiters knew of that background when he walked into the recruitment centre in Kitchener that day, they might not have dismissed him so quickly.

“Two of them at the front desk recognized me and they were like, ‘What are you doing?’ When they took us seriously finally, we started the process. It’s a year-long process just to get accepted into the program.” Landry, now 44, was 37 at the time. He says it was a daunting experience to rejoin the military at that age and go through rigorous training, which included long jogs. Upon completing the extensive program, which included pit stops in Please see “Trenton pilot” page B2

Jimmy Rankin to play Empire Theatre June 4 Entertainment - Belleville - Another great musical act is coming to the Empire Theatre next week. Canadian legend Jimmy Rankin is set to perform on Wednesday, June 4. The singer-songwriter is currently touring across Canada to promote his new

album Back Road Paradise. The album features 12 new Rankin compositions, including lead-off single Cool Car and duets with Grammy winner and bluegrass icon Allison Krauss, as well as Blue Rodeoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jim Cuddy. Twenty-ďŹ ve years into a career

that has seen him embraced as one of Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most beloved singersongwriters and hit makers, with Platinum albums and pretty much every award the nation hands out, Rankin has decided nowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the time: on his new Back Road Paradise, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll hear him like never beforeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; full-on country. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For me, going country WARRANTY! is a natural progression and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where I am right now,â&#x20AC;? he says.

of what he does: smart lyrics, great vocals, perfectly crafted songwriter material, couched in a bigger, modern country sound. Above all, it is still Jimmy, that familiar voice, homespun and heartfelt, capable of taking you to the deepest emotions, or the best party. Rankin also strives for honesty, and making a direct connection to his listeners. He has the common touch. His songs resonate with everyone because he sings about life the way we all know it, whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s falling in love, building a family, or just wanting to have a party with friends on a Friday. His magic is to put what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re thinking and wondering and worrying about into a song, as catchy as can be. Rankin, who cut his teeth on stages in and around his Cape Breton Island home, has established himself as one of the most hard-working and respected Canadian artists in the recording

The air was buzzing over Stirling last weekend as the Oak Hills Flying Club celebrated its 50th Anniversary with a barbecue and fly-in.

of Fame less than a decade ago, he adds, was never a consideration until it actually happened. “It was a real honour,” he notes quietly of the recognition, adding, “I was just having a great time flying.” And today is little different. There were many other like minds nearby, all with significantly less experience but equal appreciation for the skies. Burns says perfect weather was in part responsible for the arrival of both local and out-of-town visitors who came by both air and land. The large crowds, busy airstrip and near constant flow of traffic to and from the Stirling Airport on Sunday made for a busy day for volunteers who kept the barbecues hot and welcomed the arrival of new guests. “It’s been great,” says Burns of the day’s events. “We have them flying in, driving in, arriving on motorcycles, we’ve even had some walk in.” Visitors, he says, included members of other flying clubs as well as automobile and motorcycle clubs, many of whom had their vintage vehicles on display. And in marking the flying club’s 50th year, there was also plenty of opportunity to share thoughts on wheels and wings as well as get a closer look at some vehicles that predate the club itself. “It was started in 1964,” Burns says of the club. And while the membership and nearby airport facilities have changed markedly over that time, the collective passion for flight has remained a constant.

Chips and axes fly at Chainsaw Challenge By Brett Mann

News - Marlbank - Over forty contestants tried their hands at the 14th annual Wyatt Davis Memorial Chainsaw Challenge recently in Marlbank. Some of the contestants had arrived as spectators but couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t resist the challenge of events such as axe throwing, water boiling

and an obstacle course. The event commemorates the memory of Wyatt â&#x20AC;&#x153;Budâ&#x20AC;? Davis, a Grade 8 student at Tweed-Hungerford Senior School who lost his life in a logging accident in early 2000. Bill Langridge, main organizer of the event, was pleased with the turnout of 41 contestants and more

than 100 spectators and talked a bit about the nature of the chainsaw challenge. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is the fourteenth annual for the Wyatt Da-

Exploring a ghost town in the Canadian Rockies

An air-powered locomotive and coal cars remain in Bankhead.

Lifestyles - While in Banff National Park, I visited Bankhead, which was once a thriving coal town but is now simply an abandoned ghost town, with just a few reminders of its past remaining. The Bankhead Mine was opened in 1903 and operated by the Pacific Coal Company, a subsidiary of the Canadian Pacific Railway. The mine was located within Rocky Mountains Park (now Banff National Park), and the CPR leased the land. Some highgrade anthracite coal deposits had been discovered, so the mine was opened to fuel the CPR’s steam engines. As time passed, more and more people worked here, and the town of Bankhead was born in 1905. The town eventually had a population of about 1,000, and there was a church, school, boarding house, restaurant, hotel, pool hall, and several residential homes and saloons. There was even a Chinatown for the Chinese labourers. All the buildings were owned by the company, and the residents paid rent. There were about 300 men working underground, getting the locomotive fuel; later, some of the coal from this

mine was mixed with pitch and moulded into briquettes and used as home heating fuel. The mine, located on the edge of Cascade Mountain, was in production from 1903 to 1922, but then it was closed. It’s not clear whether this closure was a result of the recent strikes or it just no longer was deemed an appropriate activity within the park, but in the summer of 1922, notices of the closure were posted and the coal operations ceased. A written report published at the time concluded that after July 15, 1922, “Bankhead will be a dead town so far as coal mining is concerned.” The tunnel entrance was blasted shut, the town abandoned, and the town’s buildings mostly removed; some of the houses were moved to Banff, the church went to Calgary, and the Bankhead Railway Station now sits on the grounds of the Banff Hostel on Tunnel Mountain Road. Indeed, Bankhead was a dead town and it virtually disappeared. I visited what remains of this old mining site near Banff, and I first stopped at what’s now the Upper Bankhead parking lot, on the Minnewanka Loop Road. Here

I found a hiking trail that led through a thickly forested area and ascended, via an old fire access road, past some of the remnants of this mining operation. However, I found that this was a rather long, tough climb, and I didn’t see much except trees for quite a while. Eventually I passed the skeletal remains of a couple of buildings and, as I continued to climb, I passed several fenced holes which were once air vents for the mine shafts below. I then simply turned around and descended back to the parking lot (making this a round trip of about four kilometres. After that, I discovered a far more interesting hiking trail at the Lower Bankhead parking lot. It was a shorter, less strenuous interpretive hiking trail with several informative plaques, and it took me on a very interesting exploration of what’s left of this once thriving mining site. I discovered that several building foundations were still very visible although now becoming overgrown with weeds and shrubs and trees had now taken firm root inside what was left of an abandoned coke oven. I saw

several pieces of piping, concrete slabs, and rusted artefacts. I also found several heaps of abandoned coal slag, with some wild rhubarb growing nearby where former residents had probably had a garden. I saw what was left of the original Lamp House where the miners would get their lamps before descending into the dark mine and the Breaker Building. I also found a building that had been left intact in this ghost town, and it contained displays that could be viewed through its windows. There was also a compressed air locomotive with several coal cars still on display along the footpath, and I read a plaque that explained that each of these cars would’ve carried about two tons of coal and that there were up to 30 cars to a train. In its heyday, this mine could have put out about 400 carloads per day. Since I was walking through what was left of an old mining operation, I found a warning sign posted, for abandoned mines can pose some dangers. I was told to “not approach any opening” and to “stay on the trail”.

It’s a rather eerie feeling to walk through the abandoned town site of Bankhead, but it’s historically interesting

and no collecting or artefact removal is permitted here. The trail is kept open and maintained by Park Services.

News - Tweed - Kevin Callan returned to Tweed recently to share some beautiful pictures and at times harrowing stories from â&#x20AC;&#x153;Once Around Algonquin,â&#x20AC;? a tale of an â&#x20AC;&#x153;epicâ&#x20AC;? canoe trip through some of the parkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most difďŹ cult terrain. Callan was the latest guest speaker/author in the Friends of the Tweed Library speaker series and his talk drew an audience of nearly forty interested people, all or most of whom it turned out had visited Algonquin Park at least once. Kevin decided in 2013 to attempt â&#x20AC;&#x153;the Meanest Link,â&#x20AC;? a route of legendary difďŹ culty. The journey covers 350 kilometres, 55 lakes, six rivers and almost 100 portages totalling 68 kilometres. It was a â&#x20AC;&#x153;silly tripâ&#x20AC;? Callan remarked. He and fellow canoeist Andy Baxter completed the route in 20 days. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I looked at this thing called â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;the meanest link.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; It was developed in 2004 by Algonquin OutďŹ tter staff because they found their young staff werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going out that much anymore and they had to entice them. So they developed this route that connects all the OutďŹ tter stores and called it the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;meanest linkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s insane,â&#x20AC;? observed Callan, recalling the 93 portages and rivers which had to be traversed heading up stream. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s usually done as a race and the record is seven and a half days. I allocated myself 20 days because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just not for me. I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to do it fast, I wanted to spend a long time out there.â&#x20AC;? Callanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s friend Andy hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t looked at the maps heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d forwarded to him and when he saw how difďŹ cult the route was, his ďŹ rst comment was â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to kill you.â&#x20AC;? Starting from Huntsville the pair headed up the Big East River, â&#x20AC;&#x153;the most difďŹ cult part of the route.â&#x20AC;? The river becomes so shallow one must walk it, pulling the canoes, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what we did for four days.â&#x20AC;? The son of another paddler they met broke his foot on the rocky riverbed and had to be airlifted out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We started off along the west end of Algon-

white pines and bugs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve experienced mosquitoes a lot but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never experienced them as bad as last year in Algonquin Park. I felt better when I spoke to a local guy who was born there and he said he had never seen then so bad.â&#x20AC;? Sitting in their bug shelter [â&#x20AC;&#x153;we couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have done the trip without itâ&#x20AC;?] Kevin and Andy considered giving up a trip that was no longer much fun. They decided to continue after watching a snapping turtle climb a hill for 27 minutes only to fall back to

the bottom. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our life is better than his, we should continue,â&#x20AC;? they concluded. Callan recounted seeing 29 moose on their expedition, running into a band of unfriendly survivalist types, and ending their journey in Huntsville in the middle of a bathtub race. His talk included a 20-minute video of their journey, Once Around Algonquin. He concluded, â&#x20AC;&#x153;nobody who has done the whole route has done it again, or wants to.â&#x20AC;?

quin. You look at the map and see all these tiny lakes that nobody goes to. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a reason they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go there. For three days we averaged six kilometres of portages a day.â&#x20AC;? Callan has an established media presence with a number of national magazine and ďŹ lm awards. He teaches environmental issues and science at Sir Sandford Fleming College and stayed in touch with social media with the use of a satellite telephone and Ipad on his trip. Because he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t doing his trip traditionally with a cedar canvas canoe and no food drops he was castigated by a group of ďŹ ve on-line critics who called him â&#x20AC;&#x153;Luciferâ&#x20AC;?

Turtles healed and released

Trish Vander Ploeg found this turtle last year with the shell badly broken. After a year of care at the Kawartha Turtle Trauma Centre it was returned to her for release along with its baby.

News - Madoc Township Readers will recall an article last week about Paddy the snapping turtle appearing at a fund raiser in Campbellford for the Kawartha Turtle Trauma Centre.

As a direct result of the trauma centre, two painted turtles and a baby were returned to Madoc Township over the weekend. Local resident Sam Conroy is a volunteer “turtle taxi driver.”

Conroy received a call from the Kawartha centre (KTTC) to pick up two turtles from two different locations last year. Trish Vander Ploeg lives on Pigden Road. When she was out for a walk last June she passed a badly injured turtle on the road. “Three quarters of its shell was cracked. I scooted it into the grass.” She said it seemed rather hopelessly injured. When she returned home she felt she had to do something; with gloves and box, she made the trek back to get it. After a few calls she reached the “Turtle hot line.” “That evening Sam showed up, and, now, almost a year to the day we are releasing the same turtle with a baby. It’s just wonderful.” About the same time Conroy picked up a turtle from Larry Gagnon near Eldorado. Both turtles spent close to a year in rehabilitation at the KTTC. The one Vander Ploeg found was a female. Conroy says she was found to bear eggs. One of those eggs survived and hatched. Conroy explained painted turtles do not begin breeding until about eight years of age. The one Gagnon found was a feisty male wanting desperately to get back to his place of origin. Turtle crossing signs are available for municipalities to post in strategic areas. Quinte Conservation Authority provided three for Centre Hastings, but they were refuted by the Ministry of Transport who said signs must come from them and be approved for setting up.

Madoc Township clerk Bill Lebow said there are no turtle crossing signs in the municipality, but the strip of Highway 62 from Riggs Road north to about Hazzards Road is a prime turtle crossing area he noted. Eight species of turtles are native to this area. Two are endangered, three are threatened, the snapping turtle and northern map turtle are both species of “special concern.” The painted turtle is not yet listed. The Kawartha centre is the only one of its kind in Ontario, and funded by donations. It is affiliated with the Riverview Park and Zoo, Peterborough. Information can be found on the Internet at <>. If you find an injured turtle and can safely pick it up, place it carefully into a well-ventilated plastic container with a tight lid and call KTTC at 705-7415000.

Founder’s award highlights juried photo competition By Sue Dickens

News - Warkworth - Images captured with the lens of a camera hung on the walls of a downtown shop here as shutterbugs gathered to learn who had won prizes in the 2014 Juried Photography Competition hosted by the lilac festival committee. Photos of everything from a kingfisher to a beaver renovating his home were hung on the wall and offered for sale. The Founder’s Award was the first to be presented. Festival founder David Rollins selected a photo of a lilac bud by Norma Keith of Baltimore called “Bursting at the Seams” for the award. It was sponsored by the Warkworth

Community Service Club and presented by Chuck Mills. “Because it’s a lilac festival I couldn’t resist the lilac bud,” he said. Judging for the day was done by Bob Perks, an internationally known photographer and director/cinematographer. He started his career as an artist and graphic designer and became creative director of Art Associates, one of the most awarded and largest art studios in Toronto in the 1960s. After a move to New York he worked in a major agency on accounts such as Covergirl and Noxzema. In the 1970s he moved to Los Angeles and a chance to work in the film industry and consequently opened his own company directing major com-

mercials for corporations worldwide. These days having travelled with all his film gear over the years he finds it fun to travel with just a single camera over his shoulder. “I don’t like criticizing people’s work because I think it’s subjective so I pick things based on emotion and I spent my whole career working emotionally with great success,” Perks told the photographers before announcing the winners. First prize went to Roger Leekam of Toronto, for his photo called “Loon with Newly Hatched Chicks.” It was sponsored by the Rotary Club of Campbellford and presented by club president Jim Ashman. Second prize winner was Nancy

Cockburn of Peterborough for her photo “Spring Swingin’ Joy” and it was sponsored by Weaver Family Funeral Homes. Third prize went to Sandra G. Johnston of Campbellford for her photo “Blue Heron.” It was sponsored by the Campbellford Lions Club and presented by Andy Bastedo. The People’s Choice Award “was a squeaker,” said Maureen O’Grady who organized the photo contest. Jennifer Gibson of Warkworth won with 47 votes for her photo of a small frog on a daffodil called “Spring Peeper.” Mary Macfarlane of Keene was runner-up with 45 votes for her photo of a beaver working on his dam which

she called “Spring Renovations”. “Both of these photos caught the eye of visitors and both prints sold at the festival,” said O’Grady. The youth prize was won by Jasmine Beamish of Hastings for her photo “Weiner Dog in Lilacs,” sponsored by the Campbellford Lioness Club and presented by Andrea Conte. “I just think the student’s photo which has the lilacs and the dog in it … it’s just a cute thing and it’s light and airy and I just thought it was a wonderful picture,” said Perks. Runner-up was Madeline Ivy Cockburn Adams of Peterborough with her photo “Last Summer’s Garden,” sponsored by Snapshots One Hour Photo.

Quinte Children’s Water Festival celebrated By Kate Everson

News - Batawa - The Batawa Ski Hill was the site for the Quinte Children’s Water Festival on May 21 and 22 with over 950 students from Grades 3 to 5 from various schools participating. “This is the fifth year for the water festival,” said Marilyn Bucholtz, communications and outreach co-ordinator for Lower

Trent Conservation. There were students from schools in Stirling, Frankford, Trenton, Kingston, Belleville, Ameliasburgh, Cherry Valley, Picton, Deseronto, Grafton and Batawa as well as Tyendinaga Mohawk Reserve. Groups rotated through 32 stations to learn about water conservation, technology and science. They were assisted

by representatives from Ministry of Natural Resources, Quinte West Fire Department, OPP and students from Trenton High School’s Outer Limits program as well as Grade 6 to 8 from Batawa Sacred Heart Catholic School. “The level of professionalism from all the students assisting with this event is amazing,” Bucholtz commented.

Community involvement has also been important to the success of the program since 2009. Key sponsors of the event include Lower Trent Conservation, Bay of Quinte Remedial Action Plan, Batawa Ski Hill, Batawa Development Corporation, Ontario Power Generation, Children’s Water Education Council and RBC Blue Water Project. A cheque was presented from local sponsor RBC for $5,000. The RBC Blue Water Project has supported the festival for the past four years. On hand to present the cheque were Belleville branch manager Vicki Vannieuwenhuyze and Trenton branch manager Kim Tassé. Lower Trent Conservation general manager Glenda Rodgers accepted the cheque with thanks. The festival is organized by Lower Trent Conservation, Bay of Quinte Remedial Action Plan, Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board, Algonquin and Lakeshore Catholic District School Board, Quinte Conservation and Batawa Ski Hill. Activities included finding out firsthand how much water is wasted in a shower, toilet or brushing your teeth. The good ol’ days were back with children trying to wash clothes with a wash tub and scrub board. Digging up a dinosaur was also part of the adventure at the Dino Dig, showing that the same

water millions of years ago is still used today. Species at risk display from the Kawartha Trauma Centre showed how to identify each type of turtle using true scale models. Sisters of the Drum taught the sacredness of water from aboriginal drumming of the Anishinabe. The Ministry of Natural Resources had children feel the furs of local animals and see a display of

creatures and tools seized by Conservation Officers. The Quinte West fire department Batawa had its pumper truck on site to teach children about the importance of water in fire safety. A water cycle relay race had children racing through tires to fill buckets of water. All 32 stations had more than enough to stir the children’s interest and have fun at the same time.
