News - Stirling - Present road conditions in the municipality are the result of 20 years of neglect, says Clerk-Administrator Charles Croll, adding officials are doing what they can to correct problems in a timely fashion. The comments came during the most recent meeting of Stirling-Rawdon Council when local resident Roger Barrett aired his concerns about “some dangers out there that need to be addressed.” While the condition of his own road he described as “excellent” since the application of a gravel layer two years ago, he says the nearby Hoards Road and others have serious issues, ranging from

crumbling pavement to ditching practices, that could cause accidents and injury. In many cases, Barrett says, the hazardous sections are relatively small and should be addressed immediately. “We want to stop these little driveby fixes,” Croll says, but adds there is only money for two or three major projects each year and priorities need to be maintained. “We’ve got one of the ten best Asset Management Plans going,” Croll said referring to recent provincial acknowledgement that Stirling-Rawdon had an exemplary submission, adding it Please see “Roads suffering” page 3

News - Madoc - One of the first items of business during the May 28 Community Policing Advisory Committee (CPAC), was to deal with a request from Tom Simpson, deputy-mayor of Centre Hastings, for a donation of $250 toward the placement of maps at the local boat launch and five other locations throughout the municipality. Each will feature points of interest within the area as well as the OPP station where copies will be available. Discussion followed, with approval given for the expenditure. In his report to the committee, Staff Sergeant Peter Valiquette indicated that at this and future meetings, the

supervisor who was working that day, in this case, Sergeant Jeff Brooks, would be attending the meetings, to ensure consistency between the committee and the Detachment. Valiquette also said that over the next while there would be a lot of personnel changes because of retirements. He also mentioned several recent investigative incidents, one of those being five overdue canoeists during a time of high and fast water which involved the deployment of a helicopter, the Emergency Response Team, and the canine unit. The outcome was a happy one, as the canoeists were located.

Roads suffering from “20 years of neglect”

Marlbank residents voice concerns By Brett Mann

News - Marlbank - Following the Tweed council meeting held this month in Marlbank about 20 local residents met with council to discuss concerns and plans for the hamlet. The chief concern dealt with ongoing vandalism at the Andy Brown memorial facility but a range of other issues and suggestions for hamlet improvements were also discussed. Tammy Meeks acted as a community spokesperson and related the issues which emerged at an earlier Marlbank community meeting. Many of these problems could be quickly dealt with, such as missing street signs, blocked culverts and garbage bags that had not been picked up after the local “trash bash.” Councillors noted these appear

to be the result of poor communication and discussed ways to improve this. Councillor Don DeGenova reported there had been difficulties with the organization of the trash bash this year. References on the Tweed web site to the Phyloxian candle factory are outdated, said Ms. Meeks, as the Phyloxians left in February 2013. Emergency planning for the hamlet was raised by Ms. Meeks who asked, “Do we have an emergency evacuation plan?” Specifically Meeks expressed concerns about an area of the hamlet where houses are very close together and worried that a fire in that area might quickly spread. CAO/Clerk Patricia Bergeron responded that the Hastings County Social Services department has done surveys of all the

hamlets to identify possible evacuation centres in case of emergencies. It is not possible to identify a particular location, such as St. Matthew’s hall ahead of time she noted, because the nature and location of the emergency are not known. Ms. Meeks added that she was creating a Face Book page for Marlbank to help people keep in touch with what’s going on, and that the hamlet has a memorial board in the park “built by a bunch of the residents here at their expense. We have pictures of the village and a brief history. Anybody that has family here can buy a plaque and it’s put on the board in honour of their family.” Deputy-mayor Brian Treanor mentioned that a meeting of all the hamlets is being arranged to discuss

issues like funding for special projects. Councillor DeGenova suggested that it would greatly increase Marlbank’s ability to apply for funding from sources like the Trillium fund, of which he is the local representative, if they formed formal committees to apply for such funding. Sgt. James Locke of the Central Hastings OPP addressed the meeting on the issue of vandalism at the Andy Brown memorial facility and agreed with suggestions from the group that security cameras should be installed. These cameras can definitely be a deterrent he advised but they may have limited value in gathering evidence. The vandalism at the “dome” as the facility is more commonly referred to, happens mainly in the winter and

is the work of “grown men, not from here. Not kids,” according to one resident. Another resident volunteered to provide a “scissors lift or fork lift” to install the cameras. Posting a sign in parks which state a clear closing time also helps the OPP in removing unwanted visitors said Sgt. Locke and these will be posted. Another concern raised was the confusing street name situation with Napanee Road and Queen Street. Napanee Road becomes Queen Street as it goes through the hamlet then becomes Napanee Road again. With no signage announcing this, visitors easily get lost and there have been difficulties answering 911 calls. Responding to this issue and others Councillor Justin Bray said, “Let us know so we can fix it.”

Kiwanis helps Queensborough kids By Brett Mann

News - Tweed - Organizers of a Queensborough youth program accepted a $750 donation from the Tweed Kiwanis Club for a yearly summer project for children and youth this month. Queensborough residents Ann Brooks and Joan Sims explained that the program has been offered for “the past seven or eight years.” The program accommodates about 25 kids per day Ms. Sims and Ms. Brooks report and is provided for a minimal charge of $10 per family, or $25 for three children. “We provide crafts, stories and entertainers, and we hire a co-ordinator, Melanie, a teacher from Trenton who works with two The Tweed Kiwanis club presents a $750 cheque to the Queensborough Recreation centre’s “Queensborough Kid’s Program.” From left, Kiwanis President paid youth counsellors from QueensLarry King, Councillor Don DeGenova, Joan Sims, Kiwanis members Bob Giguere and Bob Sills and Ann Brooks. borough and two volunteer counsellors-in-training,” says Ms. Sims.

Snacks are provided by parents and the community and the project is able to accommodate children with special needs such as dietary restrictions. “The program is open to kids three and up,” notes Ms. Brooks, “and they have a lot of fun, both indoors and out. We have a magician this year and in past years Scott Pettigrew and his band have provided music for the kids.” The Kiwanis cheque for $750 was presented by President Larry King and Kiwanis members Bob Giguere and Bob Sills. “We generally give $500 but we were able to be a bit more generous this year,” said Mr. King, noting that Kiwanis has had a successful fundraising year. Representing the Municipality of Tweed Councillor Don DeGenova attended the presentation held at the Kiwanis Pavilion.

News - Stirling - Streets in and around the village will have some additional foot traffic on Sunday morning as members of the Stirling and District Lions Club host the third annual Lions Legacy Run. Run organizer Glenn Payne says the fund raiser and community event slated for this Sunday morning, is open to competitive and non-competitive runners of all ages with three courses laid out for registered participants. And it will be a chance, he says, for families to spend a little time together enjoying the fresh air. Community support since the run began has been excellent, Payne says, and he is hopeful the weather will also co-operate and help bring additional

runners to the Stirling arena for the 9 a.m. start. Formal registration is required for the 5-kilometre and 10-kilometre courses, while a donation to the food bank is requested from those taking part in the one-kilometre course. In past events, he says, family members of participating runners often take the shorter course around the fairgrounds while awaiting their return. And that, he adds, is all part of the plan. “We just want as many people as possible to be involved.” Registration forms are available on the Internet by following links at the Stirling and District Lions Club web site or by contacting Glenn Payne (613-3953261) or Lin Clark (613-395-0575) for details.

Good news dominates hospital board

News - Belleville - It was a good news day for the Quinte Health Care Board at its May meeting on May 27. The main excitement was a report from ďŹ nance ofďŹ cials that the board nears the end of its business year with at least a balanced budget and possibly a small surplus of around $100,000. This was achieved despite locked in rising costs from labour contracts and cutbacks in previous levels of provincial funding. Not such good news was the reality that board and staff must do it all over again next year. Another highlight was news of success in recruiting new physicians, especially pediatricians. QHC has been trying to bring its pediatrician crew up to strength for

many months. By this summer, the board was told, QHC will have a core of four full-time pediatricians, or the equivalent. Also, two new family physicians have signed on—one to Trenton Memorial emergency department and the other with an exclusively based hospital practice in both the emergency and inpatient unit at TMH. In a push for many months for improved care standards, QHC met all ďŹ ve of its corporate goals for the second consecutive year. A major project the board has been discussing for some months is an education centre within the Belleville complex to better facilitate training sessions. The area is also being

considered for community groups and meeting sessions. The board Tuesday accepted a recommendation from the Finance Committee to award a contract for the special room construction to Tom Belch and Sons Ltd. in the amount of $1.67 million. Most of the funding for this project is from the Belleville General Hospital Foundation, the John and Bernice Parrott Foundation and the hospital infrastructure renewal fund. CEO Mary Clare Egberts reported that the Bancroft hospital will beneďŹ t from the Small and Rural Hospital Transformation Funding from the ministry by $510,000. One issue raised

was the use of medicinal marijuana, by one board member, who wanted to know if it was being considered as a treatment. The reply was that it is not currently provided but it might be if a request were to come from the Medical Advisory Committee to have it added to the formulary. Less “good newsyâ€? was a report from Katherine StansďŹ eld, vice-president and chief nursing ofďŹ cer, that QHC has experienced “high rates of admission of medical patients in all four hospitals since October of 2013. She said there is no one speciďŹ c cause but most cases

is the municipality’s intention to stick with that plan. He added that in order to do proper corrective work the municipality has to schedule one of “only two shouldering machines in this part of Ontario.â€? The demand is high, with other municipalities and counties on the list, he says. Councilor Grant Hagerman also noted that vandalism and the theft of signs around roadwork sites has created unnecessary work for roads crews, adding it is not uncommon for newly resurfaced rural roads to be “torn upâ€? as a result of deliberate mischief. Deputy-mayor Wilfred Shier, who chaired the meeting in the absence of Mayor Rodney Cooney, told Barrett his speciďŹ c concerns would be raised at the next Transportation Committee. He added that any instances of road vandalism should be reported and encouraged Barrett and others to do so. There is still no word on the fate of former Stirling-Rawdon Police Services Board (PSB) Chair Greg Oliver, who was removed from the post nearly three years ago. Asked what information the Ontario Civilian Police Commission had offered recently regarding a public hearing into Oliver’s conduct, Shier said there has been nothing to report. “I don’t know what to tell you,â€? Shier, also a member of the PSB, responded to the question from the gallery. “We’re just as anxious to have it ďŹ nalized as anybody.â€?

encounter annually.� A graph showing calls for service, indicated that to date in 2014, there have been 1,985 throughout the detachment area, with each of the municipalities being listed individually and Valiquette saying that the situation was “stable throughout the detachment area.� Distracted driving continues to be a concern, with 126 motorists within the detachment area having been charged with using a hand-held device since the beginning of the year. OPP statistics indicate with regard to this that “distracted driving is the number one killer on Ontario’s roadways.� Valiquette suggested that currently most people are wearing seat belts, but there is a thrust to get drivers away from using handheld devices. He referred to it as being a learning curve, but something the OPP was keeping on top of. To date this year, there have been a total of 143 collisions within the detachment, and of those, one involved a fatality, 12 were personal injury, 130 were property damage, and two involved alcohol. The committee traditionally supports a number of initiatives,

among them a donation of bicycle helmets to all Grade 3 students, which this year number 150 at a cost of $1,695. Representatives also agreed to purchase 165 red T-shirts, which feature the words “I choose to drive soberâ€? for the graduating students; $500 dollars of the $1,072 cost is to be borne by MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving), while the remainder will come from CPAC. One portion of the regular meetings is open for representatives to express particular concerns relating to their municipalities. Wynne Rollins of Centre Hastings pointed to excessive speeding on Slab Street and Elaine Jones of Marmora and Lake mentioned an issue with delivery trucks holding up trafďŹ c on the main street. It has been recommended that perhaps the business people need to approach the municipality with regard to creating a loading zone, on each side of the street, for use by trucks only. Jones suggested the issue related more to the east side of the street as there was a parking lot and access to the stores on the west side.

to participate in the rafes, and have fun at the auction. A total of more than $10,000 was raised during the evening, which will help with the organization’s ongoing work in the area. Francis extended thanks to all who attended and to all the volunteers, friends and relatives who helped out. As she summed the evening up, “There was a lot of support from the community.â€? The ďŹ rst prize in the rafe section of the evening, a $500 gift certiďŹ cate to be used at Marmora Valu Mart, was won by Cathy Meeks of Cloyne, who commented during the May 26 presentation that it was really her husband, Ab, who had purchased the ticket while playing bid euchre at the Marmora Legion, but who couldn’t attend to accept the prize as he was working out of town. As the web site indicates, “Community Care for Central Hastings is a non-proďŹ t volunteer based agency for seniors and adults with physical disabilities. We strive to provide programs and services that assist our clients to reside in their own homes and improve the quality of life by assisting them in better utilizing community resources.â€?







Valiquette mentioned that the detachment had supported municipalities during the spring ooding, indicating, “Members were engaged for four days at the Two Loons curve on Highway 62 as the road ooded as well as a stretch on Sulphide Road.â€? Members of the Detachment were also involved in the recent fund raisers, Pedal for Hope at area schools, and COPS and COWBOYS which was held at Lone Star in Belleville. Looking ahead, Valiquette noted, “As we move into the summer, pressure increases with the inux of seasonal travellers and cottage owners in the area. Our stafďŹ ng is in good shape and we are prepared to adapt to the variety of pressure that we typically

can be attributed to an aging population and the medical and health problems associated with that fact. She also reported on plans to “mitigateâ€? the problem in next year’s priorities. They include establishing geriatric assessment clinics at both Belleville General and Trenton Memorial hospital. Some additional funding is available for such special care from the Ministry of Health, she said. The board’s next meeting will be its ofďŹ cial annual one on Tuesday, June 24. It will be held in Bancroft.

Bring on the hot weather By Judy Backus

News - Marmora - As the main street filled with cars dating back over the decades on a perfect spring night, two young entrepreneurs set up their state-of-the-art lemonade stand outside their mother’s Country Cuisine Cafe, ready to provide cooling drinks to the crowds during the May 29 Cruise Night. Business was brisk for sisters Eva Matthews and Paige Meiklejohn as car owners and Cruise Night enthusiasts stopped by to sample the beverage, served in colourful glasses with plenty of

ice and topped with a slice of lemon. The girls, who call their business Little Angels Lemonade, with a one liner that advertises, “Putting the Squeeze on Lemonade,� decided, as older sister Eva says, “to open a business because we can make money for the breakfast club at our school,� that being Earl Prentice Public School, which will receive half the proceeds. Eva and Paige, who sell the drinks for $1 a glass, will take their stainless steel lemonade stand on wheels—which includes

an ice compartment and was created by their grandfather Edgar Storms—to special events and already have two bookings. As Eva said to a customer after filling her glass with the refreshing drink, “I hope you enjoy the lemonade!�

Paige Meiklejohn and Eva Matthews, of Marmora, are set for business with their lemonade cart, matching uniforms, business cards and signage. The sisters, whose enterprise is known as Little Angels Lemonade, were kept busy with thirsty customers during the May 29 Cruise Night. Photo: Judy Backus

Centre Hastings Deputy-mayor will not run again

News - Madoc - After eight years as Deputy-reeve/mayor of Centre Hastings, Tom Simpson announced he will not be seeking re-election.

In a prepared statement read during the “announcement� section of the regular council meeting May 28, Simpson assured council and staff he would fulfill duties of office for the five months remaining in this term. Simpson returned to Madoc, “the Village of Madoc where I was born,� nine years ago when he retired as manager from IBM/Celestica. He said he felt he could “give back to the community by running for deputy reeve,� and felt the position of an elected official was to, also, be an “ambassador of the community,� a role he says has been both enjoyable and rewarding. Throughout two terms in office, Simpson built partnerships with the local high school technical department to get jobs done for various enhancements in the municipality, giving students hands-on experience in construction work and renovations, and promoted the downtown improvement plan to name a few projects. He has been chairing numerous committees and service clubs, and been active with management of the Tri-Area Medical Centre since its conception.


Simpson spoke from the mayor’s chair in absence of Owen Ketcheson who sent his regrets. “Upon reflecting on family commitments, personal life, and responsibilities of deputy-mayor, I will not seek re-election.� He spoke with evident emotion.

“Over the past eight years we have made very positive strides in moving the Municipality of Centre Hastings forward.� He told Central Hastings News he will be spending more time at home caring for his mother, who is now in ad-

Investment in Innovations brings new jobs to southern Ontario By Kate Everson

News - Quinte West - Ray Goulet told the board of Quinte Economic Development Commission that the Southern Ontario Fund for Investment in Innovation is bringing new jobs. “They had 17 loans approved in 12 months,� Goulet said. “Thirteen of these have been funded.� He said the average interest rate on the loans is 11 per cent. They have loaned out $8.5 million so far and have $12 million more to lend. “It stimulates the economy,� he said. “It is our risk.� Mayor John Williams commented, “The risk is high, but the interest is high.� Goulet said some of the new businesses started with this high-interest loan include manufacturing disposable bedpans, anti-blood products, special glasses, circuit board designer, dental

technician equipment, solar controller, turning 3D pictures to 2D, computers for aviation, acoustic separators, maintenance assistant software, and cell phone programs. One local applicant was NOD Apiary which controls mites on bee farms. That has created 15 jobs and has expanded its product to Europe. It is backed by a German company. “The companies are quite diversified,� he said.

Central and North Hastings hires System Navigators for FHTs and CHC News - Central Hastings, Bancroft, and North Hastings Family Health Teams, along with Gateway CHC are pleased to announce that they have been funded for one year to introduce the role of System Navigation into these organizations. System Navigators are registered nurses who will support patients and their physicians in accessing the right services at the right time. They will engage with the patient and the health care providers to help the patient transition between care needs in a seamless way. Funding for four full-time registered nurses (one per site) was made possible through the Medically Complex Demonstration Project Funding with the Ontario Medical Association and the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care. Physician Lead for the project is Dr. Andy Quinn, a primary care physician with Gateway CHC. Lyn Linton, Executive Director of Gateway CHC stated, “We are grateful to the Ontario Medical Association to have been selected for the funding and

that we have one year to demonstrate to our funder that this resource brings value to the patient, the physician, and to the health system as a whole. The role will be evaluated with feedback from our patients and providers and through a measurable framework focused on preventing hospitalizations and emergency department utilization.” The demonstration project is occurring in collaboration with the Rural Hastings Health Link which is designed to improve the patient’s experience between their family physician or nurse practitioner and the broader sector organizations such as QHC, Addictions & Mental Health, CCAC, Long-Term Care and Community Support Services. Health Links are defined by regional boundaries, with seven Health Links in the South East Region. The Rural Hastings Health Link encompasses Central and North Hastings, which includes four primary care organizations who together plan with our service partners to seek efficient ways to promote easier transitions

for the patient; between the hospital and returning home, arranging for other care-related services, or supporting the patient to remain at home. “The ultimate goal is to ensure that patients with the most complex care needs are supported so they can prevent a hospitalization or utilization of the emergency department,” Linton said. Dr. Adam Stewart with the Central Hastings Family Health Team said, “Embedding System Navigators within our primary care sites provides support between the patient and their primary care provider, and it also provides a communication link between organizations that provide valued services to patients so that they can remain in their homes.” Dr. Stewart added, “in addition, the System Navigators will engage with the patient to determine their goals for managing their health at home. Together, they will establish a care coordination plan and the System Navigator will provide on-going monitoring of the plan to ensure their needs are met and

Police Services Board defers decision By Kate Everson

News - Quinte West - A letter from the Hamilton Police Services Board asking the OPP to support suspension without pay for serious misconduct of officers has been deferred. “This is a personnel issue we don’t deal with as a board,” commented board chair Jim Alyea. Staff Sergeant Dave Tovell says the endorsement

would just support their belief. Alyea said this has to do with provincial employees, not municipal. “We can comment but as far as saying we want people suspended, we have no power,” he said. “They would need to amend the Police Services Act to suspend without pay.” The board decided to defer the item and talk to In-

accounts. Local police are also investigating a break and enter that occurred at a home on Wingfield Road last weekend. Police say that some time between Friday, May 30, and Monday, June 2, unknown person(s) entered an office in a residential outbuilding. No items of value were taken. Police are asking residents with any information regarding this, or any other incident, to call the Stirling-Rawdon Police Service at 613-3950844 or Crime Stoppers at 613-969-TIPS.


Linton noted, “System Navigators are currently in place at the Central Hastings Family Health Team and at Gateway CHC and are available to assist you now. System Navigators have been hired for Bancroft FHT and North Hastings FHT who commence in early June and July.”

since they might have all kinds of applications. Alyea said they have done it for eight or nine years to honour a police board member. Ted Reid said everyone has a good cause, but he was concerned about setting a precedent. He felt donations should be in line with policing and community safety. He suggested they support the $200 this year for the final year. Chuck O’Malley asked if there are any other policing fund raisers. Craig Semple said they are involved in food drives, as long as it benefits the community. Chuck Lane from Community Policing said they do that too.

if not, seek alternate solutions for success. We encourage patients who have chronic conditions and have been hospitalized, re-hospitalized, or are using the emergency department to support them as their health declines, to contact their family physician or call the System Navigator directly.”

News - Stirling - StirlingRawdon police are urging caution when dealing with unsolicited vendors after a resident reported being a victim of a telephone scam on Monday, June 2. Police say the local woman received a phone call from a male who identified himself as an employee of a computer software company. He then told the victim that he knew her computer had a virus, offering to sell her a virus protection package. Once a credit card number was obtained, additional funds were removed from the victim’s

spector Reynolds about it. Another request for support came from the Alzheimer Society, Belleville Hastings Quinte, asking for a $200 donation. Alyea noted the board started giving donations to the Alzheimer Society when Eben James was on the board, because Babe James had passed away with Alzheimer’s. They sponsored a golf tournament for $200. The only other donations they give out are for Police Day and Christmas. Their budget is $3,000. “A precedent was set from previous boards for Alzheimer’s,” he said. Ron Hamilton wondered if they should continue,

Consider the future when you vote Dear Editor, When we vote this time, we need to look to the future. It is important to have a premier that will carry us for the next few years. Premiers have a lot of power. A knowledgeable person and one ready to compromise, like Kathleen Wynn, is what we need. The three major political parties have all made mistakes when they have been in power and probably will again, but let’s get over it and vote for the party with the strongest leader, one that can make good decisions for the next few years. We don’t need another Conservative Government to cut taxes again. After the last Conservative tax cuts, it was difficult for the next government, the Liberals, to do what they needed to do. No one dares to announce that they’re raising taxes. If the Conservatives get in and cut corporate taxes again (30 per cent this time when they are already lower than most countries) our

social programs will be in big trouble. The best ingredient for a strong economy is a good educational system. Wynn plans to put money into our system, not take it out as the Conservatives are planning to do.  With special needs children in the regular classrooms now, assistants need to be kept, not let go.  The Conservatives plan to raise tuition fees for university and college.  Our young people already have enough debt by the time they graduate. The average debt now after four years of university is $34,000. Protecting the environment for the future needs to be done now and I think Kathleen Wynn has the knowledge and the will to do this. Other countries are already ahead of us in developing the technology that is needed. Technology is an area where there will be many future full-time jobs. I have to feel most citizens are more concerned about creating an equitable society, than

wanting tax cuts. Everyone has different needs and some have more than others through no fault of their own. We can’t have programs that only you want. For example, a good educational system is important to improve our society, even if you don’t have children.  Also, if we have programs to help diabetics, they will have fewer medical problems, resulting in lower medical costs. We are lucky to have an excellent Liberal candidate in Lou Rinaldi, who has done a great deal for our community in the past and still has lots of energy and enthusiasm to continue. But whatever you do, take the time to find out what the best choice is for you and vote.  People of many countries that are in chaos, are making sure they vote, and often their choices are a great deal more difficult than ours. Mary Gibb Brighton

Election Day is June 12th, 2014. Polls are open from 9 AM to 9 PM ET / 8 AM to 8 PM CT. To vote in this election, you must be: � �� ����� �� ��� �� ����� �� ���� �� � � �������� �������� and � � �������� �� �������

Dear Editor, In response to the letter from Don and Teresa, fair comment is always welcome. Suffice to say Mr. McGuinty is not running in this election nor is he the one making the promises. The reason for this election I am told, is that the Liberal government never kept a single promise they made to the NDP after the last one, therefore the NDP saw little prospect of them keeping any they made this time around. Most politicians make general promises, “We will protect the environment. We will improve whatever” etc., but the 1,000,000 jobs Conservatives promise is so far out, as to not bear scrutiny. That it was made with the coupled promise to slash 100,000 jobs in the public sector begs credibility. Add to the above, that the only way to reach those numbers would be to hack at municipal jobs also, presumably by cutting provincial transfers to them, makes this a triple conundrum.

The deficits to all levels could have been avoided by reinstating some of the dozens of tax cuts to the wealthy and large corporations (Canada now has the lowest corporate tax rates world-wide), mostly by Conservative federal governments, who have in the past and continue to pass the revenue cuts onto the provinces, who often pass the cuts onto the municipality (which is where I live). Perhaps off topic but related, Mr. Harper recently referred to “communism’s poisonous ideology and ruthless practices slowly bled into countries around the world,” while encouraging China (which last time I looked is still communist) to buy up chunks of Canada and bring in their low cost labour to operate the mines, leaving Canada with the waste and few jobs, while shipping profits and resources home. We are in a world-wide race to the bottom in wages with corporations allowed free rein to move their operations

where the labour rights are lowest and human rights laws non-existent or unenforced. Canadian mining companies in Guatemala show clearly how far they will go to enhance profit when allowed. The absurdity of restaurants using unpaid “interns” to serve tables, or bringing in temporary foreign workers to cut costs while 20 per cent of our unemployed have given up looking for work, is just a sample of how much concern our governments show for the tax-paying public. Last, many people seem to follow an old Chinese parable. When a farmer found his sick cow had died, he went fishing to console himself. Having caught a large golden fish, he was surprised to hear the fish tell him he could grant a wish if released. Having thought awhile, he asked for his neighbour’s cow to die. Paul Whittaker Gilmour  

Reduce taxes … no!

Dear Editor, Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr., who was an American scholar and judge, has been credited with the wise saying: “Taxes are what we pay for civilized society.” It is also quoted by the IRS above the entrance to their headquarters at 1111 Constitution Avenue in Washington DC. If people expect to have services like public education, healthcare, job security, a home to live in, decent reliable pensions, etc., why do they balk at having to pay taxes? The provincial Conservatives, based on past experience, have a platform based on reducing taxes, mainly for big business, and then trying to offset the ensuing reduction in government income by reducing the number of government workers, teachers and others who provide the services we need and expect. We are still suffering from the selloff of our assets and program cuts by the Harris administration, So I don’t think anyone really wants to revert to larger classroom sizes, longer waits in line for healthcare, and even longer waits for government services like assistance for the less advantaged, or simply to renew your driving licence or other documents! I am willing to pay more, not fewer taxes for

a government that spends tax dollars wisely on programs to provide good education for our children, a decent healthcare and pension system for retirees, reduces our dependence on fossil fuels, protects our environment and provides compassionate help for people who are less fortunate. Many people are very selfish, self-centred and shortsighted. Their mantra seems to be “I’m all right Jack, the rest of you can pull up your boot straps.” Not everyone is born with a silver spoon in their mouths, but in my opinion, those who do, grow up to be egotistical, power hungry self-promoters of their own “entitlements.” History shows us that most people generally put their own interests ahead of others’. This can be very frustrating for others who truly want to make things better for humankind. How can we ease poverty, prevent homelessness, make government work better, or persuade companies to pollute less? I’m afraid we have limited options at the ballot box on June 12 and the Conservative party under Tim Hudak is certainly not one of them. Erla Hawthorne, Brighton

Egypt’s man of destiny – for a while

Editorial - To the vast surprise of absolutely nobody, Field Marshal Abdel Fatah al-Sisi won the Egyptian presidential election last week. Moreover, he won it with a majority that would pass for a resounding triumph in most countries. But it is a disarmingly modest majority for an Arab Man of Destiny. Not for Sisi the implausible margins of victory claimed by Men of Destiny in other Arab countries, like the 96.3 Gwynne Dyer per cent that Egypt’s last dictator, Hosni Mubarak, claimed in his first election 21 years ago, or the spectacular 100 per cent that Iraq’s Saddam Hussein allegedly got in his last election in 2002. No, Sisi just claimed 93.3 per cent of the votes, a number low enough that it might actually be true. Sisi’s real problem is that even with the media cowed and the full resources of the state behind him, only 46 per cent of eligible Egyptians turned out to vote. He had confidently predicted an 80 per cent turnout. As an aspiring dictator who overthrew the country’s first democratically elected president, Mohamed Morsi, only one year ago, Sisi needed a big turnout. At least 1,500 protesters have been shot dead in the streets, and a minimum of 16,000 political dissidents are in jail. Sisi has shut down a popular revolution and he needed to demonstrate massive public support for what he did. He didn’t get it. Towards the end of the scheduled two days of the election, the people around him panicked. The interim prime minister, Ibrahim Mahlab, let slip that barely 30 per cent had voted so far—and the regime abruptly announced that there would be a third day of voting. An unscheduled public holiday was declared, and non-voters were threatened with a large fine. In the end, Sisi’s officials claimed a 46 per cent turnout, although journalists reported that many polling booths were almost empty on the third day. But let’s be generous and assume that 40 per cent of eligible Egyptians did vote. If 93.3 per cent of those people truly did vote for Sisi, then he has the support of just over one-third of Egyptians. Other Arab dictators have ruled their countries for decades with no more popular support than that, but it will probably not sustain Sisi through the hard times that are coming. Too many Egyptians are struggling just to feed their families. Egypt’s economy is running on fumes, and there would not

even be enough bread for people to eat—Egypt is the world’s largest importer of wheat—if Sisi were not getting massive infusions of aid from Saudi Arabia and most of the smaller Gulf states, which are very happy that he is killing off the Egyptian revolution. But even the great wealth of the Gulf kingdoms cannot win Sisi more than a breathing space: all of them together have only about a third of Egypt’s population. And there is no good reason to believe the Egyptian army, which is now effectively in charge, has the skill to resolve the country’s grave economic problems. Indeed, its highest priority will be to protect its own massive business empire. Sisi talks about how Egyptians “must work, day and night, without rest” to restore the economy after three years of revolutionary chaos, and his budget plan calls for slashing energy subsidies by 22 per cent in one year. Austerity is not going to win him any thanks from Egypt’s poor, however, and his political honeymoon will not last long. What will happen after that can be predicted from the results of Egypt’s only fully free election two years ago. Mohamed Morsi and another Islamist candidate got a total of 42 per cent of the votes in the first round of that election, while the leftist candidate, Hamdeen Sabahi, got 21 per cent. (Morsi won in the second round, when Sabahi and two other candidates had dropped out.) We can safely presume that few Islamist supporters voted at all in last week’s election. It’s clear that most of Sabahi’s former supporters also abstained: he was the only candidate who dared to run against Sisi, but he only got 3 per cent this time. Islamists and leftists therefore make up the majority of the 55-60 per cent who did not vote for Sisi this time—and that is good news for him, because the two groups have very little in common. Those who did vote for Sisi were mostly people with no strong ideological convictions who were simply exhausted by the turmoil of the past three years. They voted for “stability”, and believed Sisi’s promise that he could deliver it. So as long as they go on believing that, a deeply divided opposition poses little threat to him. But most of the people who voted for Sisi thought that when he said “stability”, he really meant an improvement in their living standards, and it’s most unlikely that he can deliver that. When they lose faith in Sisi, the opposition will achieve critical mass, and it probably won’t take more than two years. The Egyptian revolution is not over yet.


Liberals simply ignore the debt crisis

Dear Editor, The province of Ontario is deeper in debt than any other jurisdiction in North America yet the Liberals’ major platform admits it will spend even more taxpayer dollars which will inevitably bankrupt the government coffers. Liberals scoff at Conservative leader Tim Hudak’s intention of producing thousands of new jobs, saying he will actually eliminate jobs, yet the Liberals are the party that has significantly reduced the job market with extreme business regulations and ridiculously high hydro rates. Hundreds of good businesses have decided to leave Ontario in order to survive. Although they are hesitant to admit, Premier Kathleen Wynne and her Liberal buddies have swung so far left, they are now even more extreme socialists than the NDP. Just remember when you go the polls to cast your ballot,

if this Liberal government was a family with annual income of $50,000, each of you would have $112,500 in credit card debt and would be adding $5,000 to the credit card bill every year. Does that sound like Wynne and her socialists know what they’re doing? Plagued with scandals that add up to billions of dollars the Liberals have stolen from the taxpayers, how can the presiding government have the basic gall to try to make you believe otherwise? The modus operandi is to continue to lie as they attempt to cling to power. Isn’t it about time to send these Liberals a strong message that you shouldn’t be rewarded for being basically dishonest for the past decade?

Singing the blues By Terry Bush

Editorial - It’s a dream come true for NHL commissioner Gary Bettman. The dust has settled and the Stanley Cup finals are under way with both coasts of the USA represented in the final showdown. Not only are both coasts highlighted but the country’s two premier cities will be showcased as well, New York City and Los Angeles. I’m sure Bettman’s pillow is soaked each and every night from the drool creeping out of the corners of his perma-smile. And the best part for Gary is of course there are none of those darn Canadian teams involved that might dissuade American viewers from tuning in to NBC. Bettman may even escape a few of the usual boos that rain down on him every year when he presents the cup. But then again, that has become a Stanley Cup tradition especially for the fans present who have some knowledge of the goings on in Bettman’s quest to Americanize the product. It will be a Stanley Cup final for the ages. There will be countless celebrities within camera range in both arenas wanting to be seen and possibly heard. Some may even know a little bit about hockey. But I’m a little bitter about the outcome myself. I was really hoping for a Chicago/Montreal finale but alas, it was not to be. I would have had a hard time picking a team to cheer for in that scenario anyway. I’ve always had a soft spot in my heart for the Chicago Blackhawks and that’s also the team my wife Mare was cheering for, though she doesn’t pronounce the word Blackhawks the same way I do. I think that’s a woman thing. Two much emphasis on the “k” after the “c”. By cheering for, I mean occasionally asking if the Hawks were winning as she walked past the TV on her way to check her email. She’s pretty much lost interest since her man Jerome Iginla was eliminated when Boston bit the dust. Mare just loves Jerome, not for his hockey skills so much but because he has a nice smile and she thinks he’s a friendly guy. I liked the Hawks because I loved them as a kid in the 60s when Bobby Hull and Stan Mikita were at their zeniths and I was one card shy of a full set of Chicago hockey cards. I’d love to have them back along with my Beatles cards but both are sadly in the Stirling dump after someone decided to clean out the basement. I was also cheering for the Blackhawks because Belleville boy Andrew Shaw is on the squad and you’ve got to support your local talent especially a gamer like Shaw. Same deal with the Habs. Loved the way Dustin Tokarski stepped in and basically stood on his head to give the Canadiens a chance at the final after Carey Price was injured. And the fact that PK Subban used to play for the Belleville Bulls was certainly taken into consideration. But it wasn’t to be and even more disappointing than my teams being eliminated is the fact that two of my favourite anthem singers won’t be singing in the Stanley Cup final. Is there anyone who wasn’t inspired by Ginette Reno’s singing of our national anthem? Sure, most of it was in French and many of us have long since forgotten the words we learned in school but Ms. Reno’s no-nonsense approach was appreciated by the fans and players. No fist pumping, thumbs up, winks or any distractions, just an awesome performance followed by a couple of handshakes with players on the bench. I could swear Ginette flew her tanned self in from Florida each week for the occasion. In contrast, Rene Rancourt’s dye job and fist pumping just didn’t do it for me during the Bruins’ series. He must be an acquired taste. Same thing with the Rangers’ John Amirante. Not a great singer and not a great rug. He’s a New York tradition obviously and they’ll keep him around as long as he can still sing but The Big Apple is home to Broadway after all so it’s not as if there’s nobody with better chops waiting in the wings to take his place. The Chicago Blackhawks have one of the best anthem singers in the NHL in Jim Cornelison. When he gets going on the Star Spangled Banner, I always feel a strange compulsion to enlist in the U.S. Army for some reason and it’s not because a couple of veterans past and present are standing nearby. There’s something about the way he sings it full throttle that’s almost inspiring, not quite inspiring enough to make it to the final but it did take the Hawks to game 7 and then to overtime. On another note, has anyone else noticed that there always seems to be guns involved during the singing of the U.S. anthem? Just not quite sure what weapons have to do with a hockey game other than the fact that games are often referred to as battles. We don’t see that on a regular basis in Canada but then again, vive la différence. The closest we’ve come was seeing Lyndon Slewidge in his OPP uniform. Another great anthem singer but I could do without the wink and thumbs up silliness. Finish the song and smile at a job well done Lyndon. One of these decades, you might just make it to the finals too.

Dear Editor, What all those politicians who talk about jobs for Ontario seem to forget is the reason we are no longer the industrial power we once were, is not because of any action or lack of action by any of the Ontario governments, but rather, the negotiation of Free Trade with the U.S. by the Mulroney government. The auto industry, once the lynchpin of our economy has lost perhaps 50,000 good paying jobs in addition to the six to seven related spinoff jobs. This was due

to the loss of the Auto Pact when socalled Free Trade came into effect. Also, because much of the industry in Ontario consisted of American branch plants, these companies took advantage of Free Trade to rationalize their manufacturing by moving production to their U.S. plants that had excess capacity, resulting in the closure of a broad range of manufacturing plants over the years, including those that made steel, machine tools, agriculture implements, furniture, major appliances, textiles and so on.

What Free Trade did was destroy good paying jobs and vastly increase corporate profits of Canadian companies, mostly service, financial and a little manufacturing, to heights never before seen in our history, while at the same time savaging  wages and benefits not just for Ontario, but all Canadian workers. Unless and until we get back to fair trade agreements rather than free trade agreements nothing will change much. Gerry Michaud, Roslin

Mayor and council to get more money By Kate Everson

News - Quinte West - The newly elected mayor and council will be getting more money. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Staff surveyed nine municipalities comparable in geography and population to Quinte West,â&#x20AC;? CAO Charlie Murphy told council. He recommended the mayorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s salary go from $45,687 to $50,000 and a councillorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s salary from $17,351 to $20,000. He noted the pay has not been changed since 2007. Council approved the changes for the next mayor and council in October. Leslie Roseblade noted the cost of living increases are also important to attract more young people for the job. The increases will include an annual cost of living increase and a $75 per diem for certain boards and committees. A comparison of other cities noted that Bellevilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mayor gets $74,850 and councillors get $27,732. Their population is 49,454 compared to Quinte Westâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s at 43,086.

School workers protest PCs’ job cut proposal By Stephen Petrick

News - Belleville - About a dozen education workers gathered outside MPP Todd Smith’s campaign office Monday to protest the Progressive Conservative Party’s plan to cut 100,000 public sector jobs, if elected. The group, which consisted of educational assistants and other support staff who work in schools, gathered at 4 p.m. and marched along Front Street, by Donald Street, holding signs that condemned party leader Tim Hudak, who hopes to become Ontario’s premier following the June 12 election. They chanted, “a vote for Todd is a vote for Tim, show Todd the door.” Lee Ann Evans, President of CUPE 1022, the union organizing the rally, admitted this was a different type of protest. Normally, protests are held at constituency offices to encourage a government to not make a move. This protest was staged at the office where the incumbent Member of Provincial Parliament for Prince Edward-Hastings is planning his re-election campaign under the Progressive Conservative banner. The union staged the protest to encourage people not to Amy Briscoe, an Early Childhood Education student at Loyalist College, holds a sign during vote PC. a protest outside PC candidate Todd Smith’s campaign office. Briscoe said she fears she “The cuts they’re proposing to make will won’t have an opportunity to work following her graduation, if the PCs are elected and [result] in 1,146 jobs lost in this communicarry through on a proposal to cut the public sector work force. Photo: Stephen Petrick ty,” Evans said. “We came under attack two

years ago and we haven’t gotten those jobs back. Our members can’t afford any more cuts. The impact on the cuts will filter down through the community. It’s not just a loss for us, it’s a loss for the community.” Evans said she believes most members of the union are supporting the Liberals. Another CUPE member, Laura Walton, said she doubts the private sector jobs the PCs believe they can create by reducing the public work force won’t be as high paying. “At the end of the day, if you’re voting for Todd, you’re voting for Tim Hudak and Tim Hudak has come out and said he’s going to cut 100,000 jobs in the province of Ontario and then turn around and create one million jobs. In my opinion, we’re going to require two or three of those jobs to make ends meet,” Walton said. Evans added that many of the CUPE members who would be on the chopping block support their whole families on their incomes, so a job loss would be devastating. As the protesters patrolled Front Street just after 4 p.m., Smith’s campaign office was locked and no one appeared inside. A sign on the door said “Gone Canvassin’” Walton said Smith likely knew about the protest since he’s a “friend” of the group’s Facebook page. In an earlier interview with the Belleville

News, Smith clarified the 100,000 job loss proposal. “We need to reduce the size and cost of government,” he said, on the day of his campaign office opening. “Since 2009 there have been 100,000 jobs added in Ontario. What we’re talking about is, over the next four years of a PC government, reducing that number by ten per cent back to 2009 levels. “In 2009, schools were working fine, hospitals were running, all of the public services were going just fine. But we’ve seen so much bureaucracy added over the last five years that we need to get it back to 2009 levels over four years.” Smith added that the public service workers retire at a rate of five to nine per cent every year, so some of the job losses will occur through attrition.

Perfect weather for club open house News - Trenton - The Trenton Rowing and Paddling Club held their first ever spring open house Sunday and the weather could not have been more perfect. “The sunshine and the calm waters made it a perfect day to come down to the boathouse to find out more about the club and to try out a boat,” said Robin Pilon, event co-ordinator. Olympic Silver Medallist in rowing and TRPC Head Coach Jeff Lay was on hand to provide some demonstrations, coaching tips and to answer questions. Lay said he was “very happy with the turnout, especially with the interest in our learn to row programs.” Lay encourages those interested in learn to row lessons to contact them at <info@> to get their name on the pre-registration list for July. “Our June learn to row program is full,” he says. Harold Tripp, TRPC Paddling Director, was very pleased with the turnout for the group paddle. “We had a great group of new paddlers join in who now have decided they would like to do more paddling with the club,” says Tripp, who will be busy planning more paddling events for this season to keep up with the demand. He says, “It’s a great way to meet other paddling members, to paddle in the safety of a group while at the same time, getting some fresh air and exercise.” Paddling memberships can be purchased separately from rowing memberships. The rates are: single: $125, couple: $200, family: $300. Although the club encourages you to have your own kayak or canoe, the club does have a limited number of canoes and kayaks available to use for club paddling events, at no extra charge to TRPC members. TRPC membership director Suzanne Wade and treasurer Suzanne Andrews were busy taking registrations for memberships and boat storage while TRPC board member Debbie Baldasaro was kept busy serving up refreshments and a barbecue lunch. Participants had a chance to check out a variety of equipment that was on display and watch the white water kayak demonstration. For more information on the club, please visit their Facebook page at Trenton Rowing and Paddling Club, email <> or call the Quinte West Chamber at 613392-7635.

reduce red tape in the beverage and alcohol sector and will allow wineries to cross sell and cross ship products. But, as an Opposition member in a minority government, it wasn’t easy for him to get things done. Smith says if his party is elected it will scrap the Green Energy Act, which is intended to bring more renewable energy to Ontario, but has drawn criticism from the PCs over its costs and the conflicts such projects draw in their communities. Smith calls the Act, “the biggest boondoggle this province has ever seen.” Early in his term, he proposed an act which would give municipalities a say

in where a wind turbine or solar project should or shouldn’t go. It was defeated by the Liberals and the NDP, but if this election favours the PC, that proposal will be back on the table. “Wind and solar projects are not responsible for cleaning up the air,” Smith said, addressing those who criticize the PCs as not being pro environment. “The wind and solar that’s up there now is responsible for two per cent of what’s on the grid.” The PCs are proposing that Ontario buy affordable, renewable energy from power companies in Quebec. The party believes lowering the cost to power Ontario will be key to rebuilding Ontario’s

way. There are things that get out of control … like CEOs’ salaries that go through the roof.” The idea for the new ministry was one of three requests by the NDP, as the Liberal government prepared its 2013 budget. The other two were increases in spending on home care and legislation that would lead to 15 per cent reductions in auto insurance expenses for Ontarians. All three requests never made it into legislature, but the NDP is still pushing for them. Stewart is optimistic he can win the election. Although recent elections haven’t favoured the NDP in this riding,

NDP members have represented Prince Edward County and northern sections of Hastings County in the past in now defunct ridings, he noted. He says he’s campaigning by knocking on doors and letting voters know they have an alternative choice than the current Liberals and it doesn’t have to be the Progressive Conservatives. The NDP’s slogan is “Change that Makes Sense.” “Someone once said governments are like diapers,” Stewart said. “They have to be changed often and for the same reasons.”

News - Belleville - New Democratic Party candidate Merrill Stewart believes a lot of Ontario voters are feeling conflicted heading into the June 12 provincial election. Traditional Liberal voters, he feels, are concerned about the party’s performance of late, with police investigating the former premier over gas plant spending coverups, not to mention other political kerfuffles. Meanwhile, other Ontarians, Stewart believes, are concerned with news that the Progressive Conservatives plan to cut 100,000 public sector jobs and that a Tim Hudak government might bring about more Mike Harris-era-like cuts to services. For these reasons he feels the NDP is poised to make a strong showing in the election and he believes the seat he’s vying for in Prince Edward-Hastings is winnable. “I think there are more votes than most would imagine in those two groups,” he said. “And that’s what we’re looking for.” Stewart, recently retired early when his job in a sales division at Sears was sold to another company that eventually went into receivership. He had transferred to the Belleville division about ten years ago, from Alberta, where he twice ran for the NDP in provincial elections against the Ralph Klein government. Stewart said that, even though he was close to retirement, the sting of losing that job hurt. So, not surprisingly, he wants to work on efforts to spur job creation and improve the economy. But, as always, his party’s platform is based on ensuring large corporations are held accountable for any benefits they receive from the government and reforms based on benefitting average Ontarians, not just the wealthy. He says the NDP is proposing to raise minimum wage to $12 an hour and small businesses impacted by that would receive a tax break. Meanwhile, instead of tax breaks for large businesses, the NDP is proposing a grant program that would benefit businesses which hire new staff. This is based on the premise that current tax breaks for large businesses don’t guarantee the creation of new jobs. Stewart noted other NDP platform ideas, including the creation of a new Ministry for Savings and Accountability. “It would simply overview government because the Liberals have had a few management problems along the

manufacturing industry, and thus generating job growth. This fits with PC leader Tim Hudak’s well publicized “1 million jobs plan.” Early in the campaign, Hudak has drawn criticism from his announcement that 100,000 public sector jobs will have to be cut to strengthen Ontario’s economy. Smith addressed those criticisms, saying that Ontario needs less government, and fewer regulations. That will lead to more private business and even more jobs. “Whenever I talk to manufacturers or small business people, they say ‘you have to address electricity, you have to address regulation and you have to address taxes.’” Smith said. “I call it my ERT—Emergency Response Team. And Ontario really needs an Emergency Response Team right now. That’s the million jobs plan, in my opinion.” Smith makes the comment with the same passion and power in his voice that drove his previous career. Before entering politics, Smith was the news director at Quinte Broadcasting Company, and its three radio stations. He said the job helped him understand the issues facing people in the riding, and over his first term in government, he tried to be their voice at Queen’s Park. “On a personal level I just want to continue to be their trusted voice,” he

News - Belleville - Todd Smith says he got some good work done in his first term as Member of Provincial Parliament for Prince Edward-Hastings. So he believes if he can get another term—and this time go back in as part of the ruling government—he can accomplish much more. The first-time politician, and member of the Progressive Conservative party, was involved in a few bills that went through legislature and became law during the current term. One was designed to cut red tape in the real estate industry and will allow for transactions to take place electronically. Another was to

Liberal candidate Thompson supports Wynne’s budget By Stephen Petrick

News - Belleville - Georgina Thompson believes the provincial Liberal Party can win back the seat the party held in Prince Edward-Hastings prior to 2011, when Todd Smith ousted long-time Liberal incumbent Leona Dombrowsky in a tight race. And to do that, she believes, she has to rally traditional Liberal voters. “I need to have Liberals come out again,” said Thompson, from her campaign office in a plaza next to the Bay View Mall, where she’s preparing for the June 12 election. “I need to have people come out and vote. We didn’t come out and vote last time and, as a result of that, we lost a very good cabinet minister.” Thompson is well known in the riding for her work in health care and her past experience

in politics. She ran for the provincial seat in the 1990s and lost a close race to Hugh O’Neil. She has also served on municipal councils for Thurlow and Belleville. Thompson also owned her own health care business, All-care Health Services, for several years and, until just recently, was the chair of the Southeast Local Health Integration Network, an organization that oversees a scope of health care services. She said part of the reason she was inspired to get back into politics was Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne. She supports the Liberal budget that was defeated by both the Progressive Conservatives and the NDP, moves that triggered the election. “I think she has a vision, she has a plan and she has leadership,” said Thompson of the cur-

rent Premiere. “She likes partnerships and looks at the total vision for community.” Thompson calls the budget “the most progressive budget put forth in a long time.” She applauded it for its emphasis on continuing the roll out of full-day Kindergarten classes and continued efforts to fund educational assistants. As an advocate for health care, she also believes the budget will keep nurses and personal support workers employed. She challenges the Conservatives’ claims that the health care system is over managed through organizations such as the LHIN. “Before they arrived health care was looked after in Toronto and it was just … not looked after,” Thompson said. She also challenges the Conservatives’ plan to re-


move regulations in government and eliminate 100,000 public service jobs, under the assumption that fewer taxes will lead to new, private sector jobs. “They talk about getting rid of red tape. But who’s going to oversee everything … It’s there for a reason. It’s there so we have some control.” “[Progressive Conservative leader Tim] Hudak calls that tough love. When he talks about 100,000 jobs, that’s 100,000 people. That’s 100,000 families that will stop buying. What does that do for the rest of the economy?” Thompson has a quick answer for anyone who questions whether the Liberals are still fit to govern, given

recent turmoil surrounding Dalton McGuinty. The former Liberal premier has been subject to an OPP investigation surrounding the cover up of emails that showed the true costs of cancelling gas plants. “We are the right party to vote for,” Thompson said. “I’m going to tell you that there was a mistake made with those gas plants. They should have never [gone] where they were in the first place. When they decided to close them down in 2011, all three parties were going to close them down. The Liberals got in, so they closed them down. “But that’s the past, this is Liberal candidate Georgina Thompson is pictured in her campaign office, a new government.

News - Belleville - Green Party candidate Anita Payne admits it’s not easy to run for an election in a riding you’re not living in. However, she’s also realistic. Her goal is, not so much to win, but to provide voters with an alternative candidate—one with an environmentally focussed platform—and to continue to build momentum for what’s become Canada’s fourth most popular political party. Payne, a soon-to-be retired teacher who now lives in Lanark County, will represent the Greens in Prince Edward-

Hastings in the June 12 provincial election. She strongly believes the environment is degrading to a point that human extinction is possible in the not-too-distant future. “We will soon be in a place where it’s climate chaos,” she said in an interview at a downtown Belleville café; she arrived via bicycle. “We’ll have millions, if not billions, of climate refugees with rising sea levels and all the people that will suffer during extreme storms and droughts.” The easiest way to reverse that course, she believes, is to reduce greenhouse gas emis-

sions. The party is proposing a revenue-neutral carbon tax, modelled after one Payne says has been implemented in British Columbia with great results. The tax, she said, would be put on products people buy. The dollar amount would be based on emissions needed to produce or ship that product to a store. “They have a rebate system where [some] citizens get a cheque in the mail. About a third of people are better off financially, about a third break even, and the wealthy people—the top third—a carbon tax won’t change their lifestyle one bit.” The party also proposes to improve the environment by taxing those who contribute to traffic and congestion. Funds raised from these fees would then be put into public transit. While reducing greenhouse gas emissions is a strong component of the party’s platform, Payne stressed that the Greens have platform ideas for all the major issues—including the economy and education. “Our platform is based on jobs, kids and the environment,” she said. “Jobs are important and the Conservatives want to decrease the corporate tax. The tax on our corporations is already low. If that created jobs, we wouldn’t have a scarcity of jobs now. We propose to increase it by one per cent and we want to support small- and mediumsize businesses.” For instance, the party wants to change apprenticeship rules, so that one trained

journeyman can work with one apprentice (the current ratio, she says, is three journeymen for one apprentice). This, she said, will help small businesses with one or two trained labourers train new staff. The Green Party also wants to bring more environmental retrofit programs back for homeowners. Such programs, which are intended to save kilowatt hours and provide work for contractors, were once prominent, but have been cut by the federal government in recent years. As for education, the Green Party has a fairly radical idea to merge the province’s two main school systems; that is the public school boards and the Catholic school boards. This move, Payne said, would “end the discrimination” and save taxpayers money, because it would reduce administrative and operational costs. “If you’ve got a public school and a Catholic school in the same neighbourhood and both are half full, close one of them,” Payne suggests. “You still have a neighbourhood school that kids can walk to.” While the Greens have strategies for every major issue, there’s an obvious environmental link to nearly every idea. That’s no coincidence, Payne said. “Everything we do is based on the environment. You can’t have a healthy society and a healthy economy without a healthy environment,” she said.

News - Belleville - More than 100 golfers hit the links at Black Bear Ridge last Thursday. And because they did, countless local children will soon be able to play a sport of their choice, too. The Quinte Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Foundation hosted its annual Play a Round for The Kids Tournament. Although the foundation supports numerous programs, funds raised at this event were primarily for its Playing for Keeps program, which allows children from low-income families to sign up for competitive sports and activities. Playing for Keeps is a program that works with various sports and recreation groups, Quinte Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Foundation Executive Director Connie Reid said. Families who demonstrate a ďŹ nancial need can apply for funding to sign their child up for whatever activity he or she chooses. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They can apply online. And we have really great relationships with the clubs,â&#x20AC;? said Reid, noting the foundation works closely with people involved with local hockey, soccer programs and dance clubs, among other sports and activity groups. Reid said Playing for Keeps has helped 300 children from within Hastings County register for programs within the last year. That includes children from Belleville and Trenton, but also smaller communities like Stirling, Madoc and Tweed. It appears more kids will beneďŹ t from the program in the coming year, too. Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tournament included 144 golfers, numerous sponsors, and a large silent auction. Organizers were expecting to raise $40,000 on the day. Reid explained that while the Quinte Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Foundation works closely with Highland Shores Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Aidâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and in fact works out of the same buildingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;it is its own separate organization, with a different board of directors. Its programs beneďŹ t the entire community, not just kids in care of Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Aid.

News - Trenton - Derrick Morgan, past president of the Chamber of Commerce, introduced the four candidates for the provincial election for this riding at St. Paul Secondary School on May 26. On stage were Kira Mees for NDP, Gudrun Ludorf-Weaver for the Green party, Rob Milligan for PC and Lou Rinaldi for Liberals. After a brief introduction of their party platforms, each candidate was asked questions from the crowd. First was about how their party would eliminate the deďŹ cit.

The core of the community is found in those volunteers that work with countless agencies, churches and organizations, tirelessly fulfilling the needs of so many.


Rob Milligan said the Liberals are on the wrong path with a $13-billion deďŹ cit, which now costs $33,000 a minute in interest on the debt. Gudrun Ludorf-Weaver said they need to focus on small business in Ontario to drive the economy. Kira Mees said there is waste and scandal in the current government and they need to cap CEO salaries and lower the small business tax. Lou Rinaldi said the May 1 budget has been presented and is on target with no slash and burn. Sally Freeman asked about health care and long-term

students based out of Harry J. Clarke Public School. Graduates from that program often move onto Destinations, a program for Grade 9 and 10 students that leads to the IB program. When this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s graduates were asked about career goals, they expressed a range of ideas, from surgeon to researcher. Laura Hatt said she aspires to be an author. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s intelligent enough to become one. Her score on the SATs, a standardized test students must take before applying to an American college, was perfectâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;an achievement only about 400 out of 1.6 million students achieve, Cooper said. Cooper said that while itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not uncommon for graduates from Moiraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s IB program to go on to university with scholarships, this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s total marks the most one Moira class has ever achieved. Another thing that makes this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s class unique is that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mostly girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; Matt Scott was its only boy. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an anomaly, Cooper said, pointing out that a handful of the 22 of the students coming in next year are boys.

Cooper explained that the IB program takes Ontario curriculum and applies it in a more challenging way. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It prepares them for anything they might face in the future,â&#x20AC;? she said. For instance, a language course for an IB class, would have an oral exam, not just a written component. Science classes feature more labs and, to complete an English or Math course, students have to show more analytical skills. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We use the phrase rigorous course of study and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exactly what it is,â&#x20AC;?

care, being in â&#x20AC;&#x153;desperate shapeâ&#x20AC;? with minimal care. Gudrun said they need to use more nurse practitioners and have more long-term-care facilities. Kira said this is a really important issue and they need to end the waiting list for long-term care. Lou said the Liberals added 64 new beds and $600 million in home care support and are adding more dollars in the next ďŹ ve years to eliminate ALC hospital beds. Rob said they need new long-term-care buildings and Northumberland Quinte West needs to reďŹ&#x201A;ect the demographics of an aging population. Morris Gates asked how they will eliminate the debt. Rob said it is not honest to the people of Ontario to hire 400,000 bureaucrats like they did in Ontario Power Authority which grew from 17 people to 2,300 with the CEO making $400,000 a year. They also need to get rid of the Green Energy Act which costs $1 billion a year. Bob Dawes of Trenton said Hydro billing is a mess. Rob said that is the number one issue with calls into the ofďŹ ce about inaccurate billing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s asinine,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even get it right. It is a bloated bureaucracy with no leadership.â&#x20AC;? He said smart metres cost $1 billion and are faulty. Kira said the Hydro should be publicly owned and accountable. Gord asked about pensions and how people could afford to contribute to a plan. Lou said they need to think of the future and make a 1.9 per cent investment. Rob said it is a job killer, and would kill 150,000 jobs in Ontario when small and medium companies have to pay into it. As a payroll tax it would be hard on people who are struggling now, especially since Hydro is going up 43 per cent over the next ďŹ ve years.

Bayside student awarded silver medal for poster By Kate Everson

News - Quinte West - Melissa Mourez, a former Bayside Secondary School student, was awarded a silver medal for placing second in the provincial Remembrance Day competition for her black and white poster. “Melissa participated in our Legion Branch 110 annual Remembrance Poster Contest two years ago,” noted Manny Raspberry, youth educator with the Legion Youth Education program. Melissa’s Black and White Poster won first place in our Branch, our Zone and our District Poster competitions and then, placed second at our Legion Ontario Provincial level where she was awarded a silver medal.” Melissa presented a copy of the poster to president Everett “Red” MacLean. “Melissa has created a professional quality print edition of her winning poster and is here today to present a copy of her edition to our branch,” MacLean said. “We are very proud of Melissa’s

accomplishments and are very pleased to accept her poster print which we will have mounted in our Legion.” “Thank you very much Melissa for your participation in our Legion Youth Education program and congratulations on your tremendous achievement,” he added. The Legion also thanked Rob Morrow from Bayside Secondary School, head of the co-op program, for his tremendous support. “Bayside Secondary regularly participates in every one of our youth programs thanks to Rob’s efforts,” MacLean said. “Thank you very much, Rob, for your continued support.” Morrow said the Legion programs are very important to the school. Melissa Mourez is now an arts student at the University of Ottawa. She said she thought of her father in the military when she drew the poster. “It was very emotional,” she said. “I thought of my Legion representatives Red MacLean and Tamara Edwards accept a copy of the award-winning poster from artist Melissa Mourdad coming home.” ez and Bayside teacher Rob Morrow.

Benefits of one education system touted at all-candidates meeting the labour force and push more trades. Gudrun said the constitution is not solid on this point since they have one school board in Quebec and Newfoundland. Kira said the boards need to work together to find efficiencies. Mayor John Williams made a plug for Lou, saying Rinaldi went to bat for the city. He noted the Eastern Ontario Development Fund (EODF) has been very supportive and asked if they would keep it going.

Rob said, “We don’t believe in giving certain companies taxpayers’ dollars. All should benefit.” He said the EODF is a band aid solution and not helpful to the company when it dries up. Lou said the Liberals supported the $2.5-billion ten-year strategy to keep the EODF. Rob noted that Chrysler asked for $700 million and the Liberals and NDP said yes. Hudak

said no. Lou said the companies had to be competitive and added that those commitments were paid back. Randy Blair asked about trains of oil going to Lac Megantic and what party would ensure safety in Trenton. Gudrun said the Enbridge line #9 from Montreal to Sarnia goes under every major area and now wants a reverse flow pipe to carry Alberta oil to the

east coast. “No way we would support that,” she said. “And no fracking.” Lou said they need more safety nets. Rob said that safety is prominent. Mark Reynolds, a former electrician, complained about the high cost of fees up 600 per cent. Rob said the College of Trades is misleading, and is another example of bureaucracy, and is just another tax grab. More red tape drives jobs underground.

Oliver Charles (Charlie) is one of four gorgeous orange Tabbies with ambercoloured eyes. Unlike his larger brother, Ozzy, this fella has a patch of snowy~white softness on his chest matched by his dipped~in~white paws. Oliver Charles would like us humans to believe that he’s a shy guy, however when given a good rub under the chin and around his cheeks he’s been known to purr like the best of ‘em. Certainly when left to play with his brothers, Oliver Charles holds his own with the rambunctious goings-on! Loves his fellow felines, he does. Oliver Charles was in a foster home with children, other cats and a dog. He is now in a foster home with other cats. Foster Homes needed Please don’t forget kitten season is here and we need loving foster homes so we can rescue some of the helpless ones still out there and find them loving forever homes. Without foster homes we are unable to rescue and the cats and kittens will have to be returned to an undeserved life outside without the love and care they should have. Barns, outbuildings needed We are also looking for barns, out buildings or very patient accepting homes for feral cats that

Bayside, St. Theresa exchange wins at COSSA

Sports - Belleville - Bayside Secondary School’s senior girls soccer team is competing in the Ontario AA championships this week. The team earned the trip to the OFSSAA tournament, being placed in Collingwood June 3 to 5, after defeating St. Theresa’s 2 - 1 in penalty kicks, in the Central Ontario championship game played last Wednesday at Zwicks Park. The game went into penalty kicks after no one scored in regulation or extra time. Bayside advanced to the final by beating Holy Cross Peterborough 2 - 0 in a semifinal game. Cassy Jianopolous scored both goals for Bay-

side, while Marina Comeau earned a shutout in goal. St. Theresa earned its way to the final, with a 4 - 0 semifinal win over Cobourg West. Jenna Brennan, Anna Brennan, Natalie Graham and Piper Kehoe scored for St. Theresa. In junior division play, the same two schools reached the Central Ontario championship game, only this time St. Theresa came out on top. Hannah Scaletta scored in overtime to give St. Theresa a 2 - 1 win. Hannah Roach scored in regulation

for St. Theresa and Erica Seeley scored a late second-half goal for Bayside to force overtime. St. Theresa advanced to the final with a 3 - 0 semifinal win over St. Mary’s Cobourg. Victoria Woodcock scored two goals and Scaletta scored one in that game. Ruby Candler earned the shutout in goal. Bayside advanced to the final with a 3 - 1 win over Fenelon Falls. Galini Mangina, Kaelen Watters and Amy Frotten scored for Bayside.

Vintage motorcycles descend on Shannonville

By Stephen Petrick

Sports - Shannonville - The sound of classic motorcycle engines revving echoed throughout Shannonville Motorsport Park’s sun-soaked stadium bleachers last weekend. Meanwhile, enthusiasts camped out in trailers and tents, brought out tool kits to fix their bikes, snapped photos and swapped stories, all in celebration of a unique hobby and style of racing. The three-day event, hosted by the Vintage Road Racing Association, brought out about 140 racers and dozens more spectators to the park located east of Belleville, off Highway 2. There were 22 different classes of bikes, explained Shannonville’s race director Chris Chapelle. Most of the motorcycles racing, he said, were models from 1989, or earlier. Generally, a bike has to be 25 years or older to be considered vintage. And while the racing was competitive, most racers, Chapelle said, were just there for a good time. The campsite seemed just as active as the track itself, with tonnes of bikers out and about, enjoying a perfect spring weekend and a gentle breeze. “It’s an interesting following because it’s just club racing for vintage bikes,” Chapelle said. “It’s pretty relaxed. They don’t take it too seriously. “It’s a hobby for them. They pick up an old bike and get in ready to go vintage racing.” Please see “Shannonville” on page B3

Entertainment – Belleville Do characters in Grimm’s fairy tales really ‘live happily ever after’? The musical comedy, Into the Woods, by Stephen Sondheim is the last production for this season by Belleville Theatre Guild. It premiers on May 29 and runs until June 14 at Pinnacle Playhouse in Belleville. Tickets cost $25 a piece. (Seniors $22, students $10) Into the Woods explores some of possibilities of what happens to fairy tale characters in the next chapter of their lives. Act 1, introduces fairy tale favourites Cinderella, Rapunzel, and their princes, Little Red Riding Hood, the Baker and his wife, Jack, the giant killer, and his mother; the wicked wolf and the ubiquitous scheming witch. In Act II, things start to get grimmer as those who got their heart’s desire in the first act discover that the quest was more exciting than the prize and those who were

wronged come back to seek their revenge, including the giant’s homicidal wife. The play is alternately hilarious and thought provoking. The play is directed by Steve Forrester with musical direction by David Farmer, and choreography by AmyLyn Van Londersele. Dave Henderson is the producer; Darren Cole, stage manager;. Dave Alexander, set design: Sean Scully. set construction and props; Beth Callwell, costumes and Donna Douglas, rehearsal pianist. Forrester said that although there are several veteran actors from the Theatre Guild Roster, the production is predominantly young actors and actresses who are still in school or in their twenties. Among the veterans are Al Zaback as the baker, Moira Nikander-Forrester as the baker’s wife, Nancy Garrod playing a variety of roles including, Cinderella’s mother, Red Riding Hood’s

Three young teens, Kenzie McGuire, Natasha Mullens and Brayah Pickard play wood elves and set movers. Forrester describes Stephen Sondheim’s music as complicated but brilliant.” It has some of the wittiest lyrics I’ve ever heard.” Into the Woods has a special meaning for Forrester himself, who suffered serious injuries at the theatre during the winter when he fell off a ladder, he has struggled hard with his own personal quest to get back on his feet and mobile enough to take the responsibilities of directing the play. In fact, he has fared far better in his quest, than a number of characters in the play who don’t make it to the finale.

Two men pay a total of $4,000 for elk hunting offences suspension for making a false statement to a conservation officer. Court heard that on September 16, 2013, the opening day of the elk season, Ramsay and Carinci were part of a hunting party that had a licence to hunt cow elk.

Meyers farm demolished but Frank is holding on

By Kate Everson

News - Quinte West - Frank Meyers is hanging on, despite his farm being demolished in front of his eyes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m as good as can be,â&#x20AC;? he said, the day after demolition crews started knocking down his barns on May 28. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to see the government destroying prime farmland,â&#x20AC;? he added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not enough food to go around.â&#x20AC;? He said Harper is blasting Putin for terrorism when heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s doing the same thing in his own country with pencil and paper â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bullying,â&#x20AC;? Frank added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All I ever wanted was farmland.â&#x20AC;? Frank said a lot of people showed up at the site the day the crews started tearing down his buildings. Now there was

just one supporter, Daryl from Ottawa who saw it on Facebook. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just here for Frank,â&#x20AC;? Daryl said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want to make sure heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s okay.â&#x20AC;? Meanwhile, military police parked across the tracks, making sure no one interfered with the demolition, which is making way for a Joint Task Force 2, an expansion to CFB Trenton. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I stood near the tracks and they were ready, with their hands on their guns,â&#x20AC;? Frank said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They were ready for a ďŹ ght. They were going to shoot me!â&#x20AC;? Frank said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a shame they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t recycle some of the material, the steel at least, from the barns. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a waste,â&#x20AC;? he said. He added there are 3,000 bales of hay and straw in that barn that is no good now. They also stopped access to his 60 acres of corn that he couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get off in

the fall because of the wet weather. Frank plans to stay at his home, across from his seized property, with his wife Marjorie, and he will keep farming on what he has left. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have 30 acres of workable land,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And a shed.â&#x20AC;? He built the shed last fall for his tractor but he needs somewhere to store the rest of his farm equipment. Asked if he could use the promised $3.3 million from the government to build a new barn, he said he did not have

the money. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know where it is,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was returned on February 4, 2014. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have it.â&#x20AC;? Frank has rented land all over that he can continue to farm, with help from his son. But he has a lot of anger inside against the government for destroying his barns and taking his land. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I spent all my life here,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And my father before me. I was raised here. We have had this land since 1798 â&#x20AC;Ś my forefathers given this property

forever.â&#x20AC;? He said he hated to watch them tear down his barn, knowing there were barn swallows nesting in there. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an endangered species!â&#x20AC;&#x153; he said. He added there are four creeks running through the property and they were probably going to get polluted now. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t care for the pickerel ďŹ shing, they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t care about the barn swallows,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They just want to show the country theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got power.â&#x20AC;?

All the typical brands of motorcycles were present: Yamahas, Hondas and Kawasakis. However, the event was graced with the presence of a few interesting and rare motorcycles. Chapelle said there were two â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rudgesâ&#x20AC;? at the event on Saturday. A Rudge is a type of motorcycle thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s often black and low to the ground. They were generally made in the 1920s and 1930s and, thus today, are an extremely rare ďŹ nd. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re extremely valuable,â&#x20AC;? said Chapelle. Most of the motorcycles racing, he said, were models from the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s. Despite their age, they can still be patched up to race quite well. In fact, he said, some might argue that their parts are more suitable for racing than todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s newer models, which are made from lighter parts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some of these bikes are older,

heavier and solidly put together,â&#x20AC;? he said. The event started with qualifying races Friday and Saturday. By the time the ďŹ nal heats took place Sunday, a few hundred people had packed the grandstand. The racers and fans came from across the region, Chapelle said, and included a large contingent from Quebec and small groups from New York State and other pockets of Ontario. More are expected this weekend when the track hosts the 50th annual Mopar Canadian Superbike Championships, from Friday to Sunday. About 100 motorcyclists from across the country are expected to descend on the track to race in a number of different classes. The event will start with practice runs Friday and Saturday morning, leading to qualifying runs Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning. By Sunday afternoon, the motorcyclists will be competing for trophies.

Victims of sexual assault seeking help earlier than older generation By John Campbell

News - Campbellford About 70 per cent of the people who sought out help at the Kawartha Sexual Assault Centre last year were survivors of sexual assaults in their childhood.

Now adults, they were “trying to make their way in the world and having a hard time [doing] that,” said Karen Basciano, the centre’s public education and special events co-ordinator. People who have been sex-

ually assaulted are seeking support earlier these days, which is “more helpful” to their recovery “than waiting 20 or 30 years when the impacts are so embedded in their lives,” said Suzie Compeau, a counsellor. Basciano and Compeau were in town May 31 hosting an outdoor Dessert Fest, the fourth and final event in a series of fund raisers the centre held during Sexual Assault Prevention Month throughout the four counties it serves. One of every two women and one of every five men “will be sexually assaulted at some point,” Basciano said. The assaults can range from inappropriate touching to penetration. The public has the misconception that most sexual assaults are committed by strangers whose victims are attacked while they are in vulnerable situations, such as “walking alone at night,” Compeau said. But the majority of cases, 85 to 90 per cent, involve someone they know, she said, including family members, coaches, church figures or Scout leaders, for example. More adults are stepping forward with tales of sexual abuse years after the fact because of efforts to educate the public that victims were not at fault for what took place, in order to bring the problem out in the open, she said. “We see a lot of older clients, in their 50s and 60s.”

They kept silent about the abuse they suffered while a child because it wasn’t talked about back then “what happened in the home or within families,” Compeau said. “Sex education wasn’t a really big thing,” but today, “our society has become more sexualized,” which has created its own set of problems, including easy access to pornography over the Internet to children as young as eight years old, and the rise of sexting, in which young people send risque photos of themselves or others and “think nothing of it,” Compeau said. “They watch Miley Cyrus half-naked on videos,” Basciano said. “The media seems to make sexuality or sexual assault acceptable.” The result is a generation “desensitized” to sexual assaults, Compeau added. “It’s become very normalized [to look upon] this rape culture [as being] cool.” Basciano said she’s had “numerous calls from high schools” asking her to come talk to the students because “they talk about rape like it’s game.” Their lingo includes such phrases as “I raped that test,” she said. She’s been with the centre 14 years. “You almost feel like a hamster in a wheel sometimes, you’re just keeping up” with the problems caused by changes taking place in society that are not all

for the better, she said. The centre’s mission is “to support those effected by sexual violence and to impact social change within our community.” It currently has a caseload of about 70 individuals receiving individual counselling. Services include a 24-hour

crisis support line (1-866298-7778), one-on-one counselling for women and men, peer support, workshops, and presentations to high school and post-secondary students. More than 50 volunteers help staff the crisis line, assist with bingo fund raisers, and provide administrative support.

Strut for Strays event should be doggone good time By Stephen Petrick

News - Belleville - A big fundraising event in Belleville this Saturday should provide some tailwagging fun. Fixed Fur Life is holding its ninth annual Strut for Strays at Zwicks Island Park, from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. The event raises funds for the registered charity so it can pay for spaying and neutering of dogs and cats. Fixed Fur Life also helps lowincome families pay for large, unexpected vet bills. Since the organization formed about ten years ago, it has helped co-ordinate the spaying and neutering of more than 16,000 animals in the Belleville/Quinte

West region, said founder Darlene Quinsey. “We keep growing,” she said. Strut for Strays is the organization’s biggest fund raiser of the year. Last year the event raised $40,000 and Quinsey hopes to top that mark this year. The event starts at 9:30 a.m. with a walk along the riverfront trail. The walkers will have gathered pledges to participate. After the walk, Zwicks Island will be alive with activity. The Ultimate Air Dogs of Canada will be there to put on a show. There will also be more than 70 vendors selling products. Dog owners are encouraged to bring their pets, as veterinarians

will be on hand to offer checks and microchipping services. There will also be a pet costume and an ice cream eating contest for dogs. While Strut for Strays is a fun, family oriented event, the funds it raises will go toward a serious problem. Quinsey said that controlling dog and cat population is always a struggle, especially for cats which can give birth to large litters several times a year. She founded Fixed Fur Life after touring shelters in other parts of Ontario and learning that there were few programs available to help pet owners pay for spaying and neutering. She says about 80 per cent of the

cats her organization has fixed have been female. This will hopefully, in time, lead to fewer stray cats in the area. She believes the work is already making a difference, given that she has not received as many calls to have cats fixed this year than she has in recent years. Despite this, there’s still a high demand for the organization’s services, she said. And there will never be a surplus of money for all the spaying and neutering costs needed to serve a community. “If we made five million dollars tomorrow, there’d still be that need,” she said.

Brussels’ “Ommegang Festival” takes place next month

Stilt fighters in the show.

I attended last year’s Ommegang Festival, and I witnessed the spectacular procession and magnificent show from my very own reserved seat in Grand Place’s grandstand (especially erected for this event), and I soon discovered that this event brings to life, at least for a brief time, an intriguing, bygone historical era. It was fascinating to see all the incredible costumes—and I watched, spellbound, as the crossbowmen entered the square, along with the flag-bearers and the medieval representatives of the court, guilds, guards, and soldiers. Many of the costumed participants arrived by foot, while others came on horseback—and then the royal guests (including Charles V) arrived by horse and carriage— and took their seats in the viewing stand. They then watched the spectacle along with the rest of us, which included a great deal of music and frivolity and a mesmerizing display of flag waving, horsemanship, medieval games (including fencers and stilt fighters), dancing, flame throwing, and fireworks. It was quite the show and went on for about three hours. Along with the magnificence of the overall spectacle itself, I was particularly impressed by the young stilt fighters, who fought with one another during the games to try to be the last stilt fighter standing! The cobblestones were rather wet (as it had rained) and, therefore, slippery, but these courageous participants fought bravely on and received a great ovation from the appreciative crowd. There’s a cost to get one of the reserved seats in the

By John M. Smith

Lifestyles - The “Ommegang Festival” will be celebrated in Brussels, Belgium, from July 1 until 3 this summer. This annual colourful event, now part of the “Carolus V Festival,” is a re-enactment of the medieval celebration that honoured the coming of Charles V to Brussels in 1549. The main objectives of the original festival were to welcome Charles V and to show off, in a way, the grandeur and prosperity of the country at that time, and this tradition has been continued throughout the centuries. Today’s Ommegang Festival offers a kind of overview of Belgium’s culture, arts, and history. It’s quite a spectacle, with over a thousand 16th century costumed participants in a lavish parade that begins in Grand Sablon and ends up at Grand Place, followed by an elaborate display of pageantry that’s held right in this renowned square. Victor Hugo once described Brussels’ Grand Place as “the most beautiful square in Europe,” so it’s definitely a very appropriate setting for this special event. This square is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and it contains a variety of styles. The Town Hall (Hotel de Ville) is a Gothic masterpiece dating from the early 15th century, and its spire is topped by the Archangel St. Michael, the Patron Saint of Brussels. The Brussels City Museum, devoted to the history of Brussels, is also located on the square (in the King’s House on Grand Place), and it’s also well worth a visit to learn more about the history of both this city and this festival. I even found a Entering Coudenberg Palace, the former Palace of Brussels (now underground). nice restaurant at Grand Place that was appropriately named “Brasserie de l’Ommegang.”

These costumed participants are ready for the show to begin.

grandstand (from 37.50 euro to 77.50 euro), but anyone can stand along the parade route and watch it for free. Also, all are able to go to a free medieval village that’s set up in Place du Grand Sablon during this festival, to watch the ongoing tournament, including knights in combat on both foot and horse. One of the groups of crossbowmen that partake in the annual Ommegang Festival is the Saint Georges Crossbowmen of Brussels, and I learned more about this particular organization by visiting this club’s guildhall. It’s tucked away behind Place Royale, on the Impasse du Borgendael, and its cellar is filled with memorabilia and its shooting ranges. After all, this particular crossbow guild has been serving the city of Brussels since 1381, and weekly traditional crossbow shooting practices are still held here weekly. I discovered even more information about this particular festival by visiting the museum housed in Halle Gate, which was once a city gate, for it now contains works of art, masks and costumes connected to the Ommegang Festival. Yet another important connection with this festival is the former residence of Charles V in Brussels, Coudenburg Palace, located by Place Royale, and I actually visited the underground remains of this site and even dined down there. Our 16th century menu, especially designed to complement the Ommegang Festival, included stuffed apples with mincemeat, along with a great variety of other appropriate dishes concocted by the Centre for Historical Gastronomy. I simply strolled from table to table, in the underground archaeological digs, and sampled the foods that were offered while exploring the ruins themselves. Some historians believe the Ommegang Festival actually began as a religious ritual back in the 14th century, but it has celebrated the arrival of Emperor Charles V since 1549, and it’s still attracting tourists to Brussels today!

Family tree research unearths murder buried in the past

By Sue Dickens

Dan Buchanan, of Brighton, a computer consultant and genealogist, kept the members of the Trent Hills Probus Club spellbound as he told his tale of notorious murderer Dr. William Henry King, who, as he discovered, is a cousin who lived in the mid 1850s on the family farm north of Codrington where he grew up.

News - Campbellford - Researching his family tree, a local genealogist discovered a cousin who made front page news with a tale of intrigue and murder in the late 1850s. “The only person ever executed in Northumberland County was a cousin of mine … not only is he in my family tree but he lived on the family farm north of Codrington where I grew up.” Those are the words of Dan Buchanan of Brighton, who brought the facts of his discovery together for a presentation to the Trent Hills Probus Club. A computer consultant and self-proclaimed “geek” who enjoys research, his interest in genealogy is well documented online on his web site and information of his “notorious” murderous cousin can be found there. “I have the family trees of most of the families around Brighton from the earliest settlement and all of these stories have come out of that,” he explained. “You can pick your friends but not your relatives,” he told the audience as he began a one-hour PowerPoint show with a storyline of the events that led up to a public hanging of Dr. William Henry King, convicted of murdering his wife Sarah Ann Lawson, in 1859. “The story I uncovered is about the brutal murder of an innocent young woman,” he said as he provided details of the dastardly deed of long ago that he found buried in archival records. It was a story of how King studied for a degree from a homeopathic medical college and how he used his knowl-

trip that his mother-in-law decided to stop by his house and check the pockets of a coat he had left behind. She “found a likeness” [photograph] of Melinda there.” Suspicious of all that had happened leading up to Lawson’s death, her family eventually was able to get an autopsy done and the truth that Sarah had been poisoned with arsenic was made known. A jury of 12 men convicted Dr. King. “At the hanging 10,000 people crowded around to watch,” said storyteller Buchanan.

News - Quinte West - New cameras installed in OPP cruisers will be able to detect suspended drivers. “All the officers are trained on this new technology,” said Staff Sergeant Dave Tovell at the Police Services Board. There will be an Automated Licence Plate Recognition Program (ALPR) camera installed on the front and back of the cruiser. The scanned licence plates go into a software program that checks for anything wrong, such as a non-validated tag, suspended driver or unqualified driver. It sets off an alarm when the

OPP drives by the vehicle. The close up on the licence plate is verified with Ministry of Transportation of Ontario (MTO) and the driver is pulled over. “It’s a valuable tool,” Tovell said. He noted the camera can read up to two plates a second. The Quinte West detachment currently has one vehicle equipped with the cameras, added this past month. It will share the technology with the Prince Edward County OPP and Centre Hastings OPP detachments. “We are the host detachment,” Tovell added. “We are one of the first police de-

partments to have this on the road.” The OPP has added 27 ALPR equipped vehicles to its existing fleet. The OPP are the first police service in Ontario and one of the first in Canada to target suspended drivers with this program. “It will get people off the streets,” Tovell said. “These people should not be driving. It’s a great tool. Very impressive.” Dick Button asked if it could read a licence if the paint is peeling off. Tovell said it is impressive even with different angles how accurate it is.

A 7,000-word confession by Dr. King, which he wrote while in jail waiting for his hanging day, was unveiled later. The tale of the infamous Dr. King reappeared in the Cobourg Star in the 1970s and in the Brighton Independent in 1994. Buchanan is considering writing a book about the tale. For more information go to: < htm#i1351>. The Trent Hills Probus Club meets the second Wednesday of each month at 9:30 a.m. at St. John’s United Church.

edge to give doses of arsenic to his pregnant wife, later adding opium and chloroform to the deadly mix. Flirtatious by nature, Dr. King’s fated trip to the gallows was sealed when he met “Melinda,” a friend of his wife’s. “She was beautiful, well educated, social and outgoing … the contrast between Melinda and Sarah was stark,” said Buchanan as he unravelled the mystery of the crime. Keeping his wife isolated from her family, it was only when Dr. King went away on a business

Will history repeat itself?

By Diane Sherman

News - Madoc - The Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Centre for Holocaust Studies is hoping they can “empower people to raise their voices and take action against hate to make the world a better place.” To fulfill that purpose, the Wiesenthal Centre (FSWC) invested in an innovative mobile “Tolerance Education Centre,” a multi-media theatre on wheels, able to bring educational programs to schools and communities beyond Toronto. The Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board has included the program as part of their history course. The big white tour bus boldly displays the title, Tour for Humanity, with large faces from diverse cultures emblazoned

on the sides, a vehicle meant to draw attention, seating 30 people a showing. The tour has been to Loyalist and Quinte secondary schools since it took to the road in 2013, and presented to community leaders, educators, and front-line workers on topics of diversity, democracy, responsibility and Canadian civic rights. Wednesday, May 13, it arrived at Centre Hastings Secondary School where class groups of Grade 11 and 12 students took turns viewing the 45- minute presentation facilitated by Laura Dantsis of the FSWC, and Sherri Browning, department head for Canadian and World Studies at CHSS. Browning says CHSS has a strong connection with the centre.

“Four years ago we partnered with FSWC. We can take courses and made a visit to the Toronto centre.” Browning says she took an intensive two-day program at the Los Angeles centre. Students are scheduled to attend the Toronto centre again September 23, Freedom Day, when they will hear Wab Kinew, aboriginal rights activist, rapper, media star and panelist for CBC’s Canada Reads choice awards. Gold medal hockey winner Meaghan Mikkelson, and Travis Price, co-founder of Pink Shirt Day (anti-hate movement) will also speak from their perspectives. The program, Dantsis explained, began through benefactors in support of Simon Wiesenthal’s movement to edu-

(Above and right) FSWC tour facilitator Laura Dantsis explained Canada is not exempt from crimes against humanity, making reference to First Nations and Japanese Canadians throughout history, the fight for gay rights and the current trend of cyber-bullying. Photo: Diane Sherman

Students sat quietly during the presentation, listening to sordid, historic, details of decisions made by Fathers of Confederation, commercial developers, war departments, religious factions and governing bodies across Canada. Response to questions was made gingerly on the sensitive topic. It was a time for reflection. Students across Canada, in Grades 11 and 12, may apply for an educational scholarship from FSWC designed to recognize those “who have demonstrated strong commitment to further Wiesenthal’s legacy of promoting tolerance, social justice and human rights.” For further information contact FSWC at <> or phone 416-864-9735.

Laura Dantsis introduced CHSS students to the history of Simon Wiesenthal, and the establishment of the Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Centre which now provides a mobile education centre for schools and communities outside the GTA. Photo: Diane Sherman

News - The Belleville Association of the Deaf (B.A.D.) will be holding a fund raising event Saturday June 7th at the Metro store on North Front St. in Belleville. Washing cars and selling off slightly used items at a yard sale will be the focus for the day, with more to come in the near future!  The goal this time around is to up the ante and raise $1,500!   B.A.D. is working toward establishing a Belleville centre for the deaf, with the same focus as many other cultural centres in the area enjoy - a common meeting place where people of the same language and customs can get together. A lot more work will be needed to reach the ambitious goal, as the long term plans for this project will run around the $300,000 mark. If you would like to learn more about the deaf community, check out our website at ASL classes (American Sign Language) are routinely available through the Canadian Hearing Society, with an office at the Bayview Mall in Belleville. Loyalist College routinely offers classes as well. Anyone wishing to help make this happen can volunteer or simply make a donation.

cate about the slaughter of 11 million people under Hitler’s Nazi regime, six million of those killed were Jews. Wiesenthal was a survivor of the concentration camps. “Though the centre was started to educate people on the realities of the Holocaust, there are many cases of mass slaughter and cultural genocide. Most people don’t know Canada played a part. It’s not often given attention.” Scheduled for the day was “The Canadian Experience,” a slide show focusing on historical events, such as the history of Aboriginal Residential schools and treatment of Japanese Canadians during World War II. It also addresses the timely topic of cyber-bullying.

The Good Earth: Plant a row

Lifestyles - Each year, I resubmit the following article to try and encourage you to help out. I hope, someday, that the need for such a column will no longer exist. Unfortunately, the pressure to feed our friends and neighbours in the community continues to grow. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s growing season is off to a bit of a slower start as soil temperatures have just reached good values. This means a lot of you have recently finished or will soon start your veggie patch. Gentle Reader, I grew up on a farm. I was never hungry unless some youthful exuberance necessitated heading off to bed without supper. In my life, I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t remember going without food and I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t imagine what that would be like. We live in one of the most bounteous countries on this good earth and people, our neighbours, know what hunger is. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not right. A cynic might say that, truth be told, our flower gardens are merely affectations of the well-to-do. If this

seems harsh to read, especially in a gardening column, consider this: those of us who can spend time gardening have a.) stewardship of our own bit of this good earth; b.) the monetary resources to purchase the plants and tools needed; c.) the luxury of the time to do it; and d.) a lifestyle that allows for the time to even contemplate such a venture unencumbered by the daily need to merely provide for our families. â&#x20AC;¨By the standards of our society, we have worked hard to be able to do this and there should be no negative connotations assumed for doing so.â&#x20AC;¨However, there is a certain fragility about our comfort that needs to be acknowledged.â&#x20AC;¨We know too well that there are folks in our country, in our own communities, who do not enjoy such luxury. These people are not indigent bums who leach off of us. The majority are hard working, proud, valuable members of our community who are astonished to find themselves in such need. All it

takes is a factory closure or temporary shutdown to jeopardise many a familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s finances.â&#x20AC;¨â&#x20AC;¨Visit your local food bank, ask any social service agency about child poverty, talk to the Sally Ann about the desperate need some of our neighbours have to deal with every day. Ask them specifically about food. There is no excuse that allows people to go hungry in our land of plenty.â&#x20AC;¨â&#x20AC;¨There is a way to affect some tangible good with our gardens. It is so simple, grow some extra vegetables or fruits for donation. Plant a Row Grow a Row is a movement that began in the United States and has spread across North America. Folks are asked to set aside a patch of their own land specifically for other people. The produce is brought to a central collection place such as the food bank or a community run greenhouse or garden plots. Depending on the nature of the crop and the immediate need, the food is distributed where it can do the most good. In fact, by inquiring before

The Good Earth:

you plant in the spring, you can sow the veggies most needed even if it is broccoli or cauliflower (or the dreaded beet). â&#x20AC;¨â&#x20AC;¨In Canada, the â&#x20AC;&#x153;seedâ&#x20AC;? organisation is the Composting Council of Canada. They have all of the promotional material, planning guidelines and an amazing network of connections that you can access: <>. Anyone can initiate such a program but it takes the community to bring it to fruition.â&#x20AC;¨â&#x20AC;¨Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the beauty of it. All of the qualities that impart joy, contentment and relaxation to you through gardening will be realised with your participation in this campaign. You lose nothing and gain everything. Better yet, this will not detract or take away from any other initiatives; it will only augment them. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t actually have to be a part of any official organisation. You can do this on your own and, for those who are not fond of the spotlight, relatively anonymously. My suggestion is that you call your local food bank and ask

Dan Clost

them what you can grow, you might be surprised to learn that there is more to a food bank grocery list than root crops. As well, you may find yourself with a bounteous harvest of food with a short shelf life such as strawberries. Help out if you can, Gentle Reader. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all sustained by the same good earth; we just need to fine tune the distribution.

with a bright future. It remembers how Canada welcomed the Bata Shoe Factory and its first workers in 1939. Many of those first factory employees, and Batawa residents, came to this country from

Czechoslovakia to start a new life in Canada. The majority became Canadian citizens and continued to improve their home by building a school, bank, and clearing the way for the Batawa Ski Club. Today,

the shoe factory is undergoing a transformation into condominiums as part of the Batawa Development Corporationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trailblazing work in sustainable community development.

The location is a secret, revealed to ticket holders only when they buy their $65 (tax included) ticket. A supporter of Westben both as a business owner (with his partner Wayne Sabados) and personally, Graham expects the spring event will be a sellout. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want it to be a surprise â&#x20AC;Ś people wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be disappointed,â&#x20AC;? Graham said as he offered this writer a tour of the garden as a preview of the venue. Donna Bennett, Westben co-founder and advancement and marketing director, agrees. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The venue is a great way to be close to an artist as well as the musicians. It will be very intimate because you will be wandering the gardens and they will be right there,â&#x20AC;? she said.

It was at his suggestion that the fall fund raiser of seasons past be moved to the start of the summerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s performances, an idea that gained momentum quickly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something I had been thinking about, because as much as the fall fund raiser is a great way to finish off the season, I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great to get people at the beginning of the festival season and get them excited about it,â&#x20AC;? Graham told the Trent Hills Independent. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And spring is such a lovely time of year when you can get people excited about the summer performances,â&#x20AC;? he added. There is another benefit to hosting the fund raiser in the spring. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In terms of fund raising, waiting until the end of the season to see how we are going to do financially, because thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when we have our biggest event â&#x20AC;Ś well there is a budget for fund raising and so

Mixed Doubles combines song, dance and comedy

Debbie Collins and Dean Hollin rehearse for upcoming performances of Mixed Doubles, which returns to the Stirling Festival Theatre next Thursday with some of entertainment’s most memorable duos. By Richard Turtle

Entertainment - Stirling - Debbie Collins and Dean Hollin have been bringing their acting talents to the Stirling Festival Theatre stage since shortly after the doors reopened, and the duo have returned to revive a show that was first performed here in 2001. Mixed Doubles, explains Hollin, is a tribute to some of entertainment’s most iconic duos and duets and is a blend of stage and screen history, music and comedy, with heavy emphasis on the comedy. “It was actually 13 years ago we started working on the show,” Hollin says, adding it grew out of their performances in the 2000 production of Swing, which featured, among other numbers, the pair’s rendition of You Has Jazz. There was a definite stage

chemistry between the pair, the actors say, and the show’s director, Caroline Smith, was one of many who took notice. “After that, Caroline said, ‘Let’s figure out something for you to do,’” Hollins says. “The idea was to look at the world’s greatest duos … and take a vaudeville approach.” So audiences can expect to see Fred and Ginger, Donnie and Marie, Archie and Edith, Sonny and Cher, Lucy and Ethel and a host of others. The show features familiar songs and comedy routines from the past that, he says, will undoubtedly appeal to all generations. There is even a brief appearance from Adam and Eve. And there is plenty of theatre magic as well, Hollin says, with the show centred around a giant trunk containing a seemingly endless supply of props and

costumes. And while the bulk of the material originated decades ago, it remains timeless and accessible to audiences today. So the inclusion of Abbot and Costello’s Who’s on First, Hollin says, was a no-brainer. And to bring the show back to Stirling where it first started, the performers say, is a treat. But there have been some script changes since the show was first staged and plenty of material was left by the wayside in development. Collins admits there was a lot to choose from when creating the show, and deciding what to leave out was just as difficult as deciding what to include. The original production, Hollin says, featured a scene originally involving Lucy announcing her pregnancy to Ricky but that was later replaced by the outrageous chocolate factory scene where Lucy and best friend Ethel struggle to keep up with an assembly line of desserts. Eventually, too, that scene was axed primarily because of the technical and logistical difficulties encountered during live performances, and there was a hole to fill. But Ethel and Lucy couldn’t be ignored, Hollin and Collins say, so another memorable scene has been adapted for the show. Exactly which one, they aren’t saying, but they are promising laughs. “You’ll have to come and see for yourself,” Hollin says. Following their two weeks in Stirling, Collins and Hollin will be destined for Orillia where the play is scheduled to run for five more weeks through June and July. Mixed Doubles opened last night in Stirling, with matinee and evening performances today (Thursday) returning

next week from June 12 to 14. Tickets Theatre box office or by calling 613are available at the Stirling Festival 395-2100.

Music and comedy are at the core of Mixed Doubles, featuring Dean Hollin and Debbie Collins. The show, which was first performed at the Stirling Festival Theatre in 2001, returned this week for a two-week run.

ParaSport Games a huge success in Northumberland

By John Campbell

Sports - Brighton - From start to finish, the 2014 Ontario ParaSport Games held across Northumberland County last weekend proved a winning combination for all concerned: organizers, athletes and volunteers. “It’s been from all reports a successful weekend,” Northumberland’s Director of Economic Development and Tourism Dan Borowec said Sunday morning, while the handcycling race was in progress. “The weather has been on our side, attendance at the various events has been pretty good … [and the county received] really, really good, positive comments from the athletes about Northumberland,” he said. “It’s been a great event.” About 300 of them showed up to take part in four national training camps or to vie for medals in one of the eight parasport competitions: handcycling, wheelchair basketball, wheelchair rugby, amputee golf, blind golf, sledge hockey, para-equestrian, and boccia. “It’s been well worth doing,” Borowec said of the county’s efforts to host the games, which started taking shape two years ago and involved the training of 250 volunteers for the three-day event. The games entrants, with varying degrees of disabilities ranging from blindness to loss of use of limbs, gained public recognition for their athleticism and competitiveness, and the county, in turn, raised its profile among them, Borowec said.

Just Teeth

SAVE $1.00


Our ability to eat and chew different types of food is dependent on a whole system of events that breaks down food into pieces that we can swallow. It involves much more than just our teeth. One of the most important aspects of our chewing system is our jaw joint, more specifically the temporomandibular joint. For simplicity sake, let’s refer to this joint as the TM joint. When people experience problems with their TM joint, the condition is known as temporomandibular dysfunction or TMD. Here are some of the signs and symptoms of TMD: 1. Clicking sounds from joint during opening and closing

2. Pain during opening or closing or while eating 3. Locking of jaw joint

4. Grinding or clenching habits

5. Limited opening of the mouth 6. Headaches 7. Pain in the shoulder and back To determine whether you have TMD and what types of treatment would be appropriate for you, it is important that you see your dentist for a thorough examination of your jaw joint. Your dentist can also take various radiographs (x-rays) and examine your occlusion or bite, in order to help determine the cause of your TMD. Once a diagnosis of TMD has been established, treatment can begin. Here are some treatment options for patients with TMD: 1. Oral appliance therapy (oral orthotics) 2. Bite adjustment or alteration 3. Medications 4. Surgery Because TMD can be such a debilitating condition that affects so many aspects of daily life especially eating and sleeping, it is important that you visit your dentist to determine if you have TMD and to find out what treatment options are appropriate for you.

Officials with the national camps—sitting volleyball, parasoccer, paracycling and paratriathalon—“started talking to us” about holding their camps here each year “because of the facilities and the reception they received,” he said. “Our next step is, having established relationships with some of the heads of the various parasport organizations, to start that dialogue and see what we can do on an ongoing basis.” The handcycling race was held in Brighton Sunday morning with the start and finish line outside the front entrance of East Northumberland Secondary School. The course out into the countryside was slightly more than ten kilometres long and racers went around it two or three times depending on their category. The time trials were held a day earlier at Colborne.

Pull for Kids event should be a busload of fun

By Stephen Petrick

News - Belleville - Why on Earth would anyone want to pull a 13-tonne object? Well, to raise money for asthma research, to support The Lung Association and the kids it helps, and to have a busload of good fun, that’s why. Participants and supporters for the

upcoming Pull for Kids event gathered at Montana’s last Tuesday for a captain’s rally. The rally was a chance for teams to meet and mingle and ask questions, leading up to the event on Saturday, June 14. The event takes place in the parking lot of Best Buy, at 202 Bell Boulevard. Registration begins at 9:30 a.m. and the opening ceremonies start at 10:45 a.m. The pulls begin at 11 a.m. and should continue up to the end of the finals at around 1:30 p.m. It’s a fun, but not exactly easy event. The Pull for Kids matches teams against each other to see who can pull a large coach bus 100 feet in the least amount of time. Teams may consist of eight men or 12 women. Co-ed teams consist of ten people. So what’s the

secret to completing such a demanding challenge? “Ignore the pain, just go with everything you got,” said Shawn Waite, a member of the three-time champion Property Guys team. Waite, was at the captain’s rally Tuesday, because he and his teammates have signed up for an attempt to defend their title. But winning the event isn’t the most important thing, he said. “It’s mainly for the fun and to support the kids,” he said, when asked why his team keeps coming out; this will be the Property Guys team’s fifth time in the competition. “It’s a great day and we love pulling around a 13-tonne bus.” Lola McMurter, a special events co-ordinator for the Hastings-Prince Edward chapter of The Lung Association, said this marks the tenth year the event will be held in Belleville. Many other Lung Association chapters have stopped holding the event, but this one has continued thanks to the support it has received here. The event has raised $195,000 over the last nine years and organizers hope to top $10,000 this year. They also hope this year’s event will bring out a few dads, because it’s Father’s Day weekend.

Although the event is titled Pull for Kids, it’s also very much an event for adults, McMurter noted. While many people associate asthma as a breathing condition that affects children, one in ten adults over age 40 suffer from asthma, she said. However, it often goes undetected. “Most people put it off as something else, when in fact it’s asthma.” Nonetheless, research and support for asthma sufferers is needed, especially children who, generally, do not have the opportunity to participate in sports, if their asthma is not treated. “Experts say if asthma is controlled they can participate in sports,” said McMurter. “They don’t have to sit on the sidelines.” Several teams had representatives at the captain’s rally Tuesday, but there’s still time for new teams to register. They can do so by visiting <www.> or contacting McMurter at 613-969-0323 or <lmcmurter@>.

A professional can steal a car in just 30 seconds so that’s why Laura Vickers of Trent Hills Community Policing walked the streets of Warkworth during the recent Lilac Festival weekend with Northumberland OPP Auxiliary Constable Peter Brown, left, and Auxiliary Constable Zachary Curtin, leaving “tickets” on the windshield of vehicles to let the owners know if the officers found it locked or unlocked (with keys in view), windows open or valuables in plain sight. It is all part of their ongoing educational crime prevention program in the communities of Trent Hills. The trio had also been to Hastings. “The good news is 95 per cent of the vehicles have been locked,” said Vickers. Photo: Sue Dickens

Hicks, George Morton Peacefully in Cobourg, Ontario on May 15, 2014. Born in Toronto on June 21, 1921, beloved son of the late Louisa & David John Hicks, he was the oldest of seven children, the late Cecil, David, Bill, Helen and Fred, and survived by sister Eileen of Calgary. Dear husband of the late Hazel Gertrude (nee Hunt), loving father of Allan Hicks & Diane Fagan, Grandfather of Adam Fagan & Ashley Fagan (Garth Robichaud), and adored great Grandpa of Hayley Lin (2 ½) and Peyton Diane (5 months). “Number One” Father In Law to Allan Fagan. George joined The Imperial Life as a member of the Printing Unit after graduation from Danforth Technical School. In 1940, he enlisted in the R.C.N.V.R., where, in the next 5 years, he would see plenty of action. George’s first ship was the Royal Navy cruiser Voltaire on convoy duty. Subsequently, he served on the corvettes Pictou, Calgary and Alberni and finally on the frigate Charlottetown. While on the Alberni he was in on the invasion of North Africa. George was lucky, in that he just got off ships in time, since three of the five he served on were eventually sunk or damaged by enemy action. George returned to The Imperial Life in 1945 when the war ended, rejoining the Printing Unit, where he ultimately was appointed Printing and Purchasing Manager. Over the years, George enjoyed his summers with the family at the cottage in Brighton, Ontario, and winters with Hazel in Punta Gorda, Florida. His later years were spent in Cobourg, Ontario. He spent many an afternoon playing some intense cribbage matches with Jimmy Baker, where he ultimately won... one way or another.

Javafest finale thrills (Right) Cameron Pederson and Megan Wilson perform during Norwood District High School’s final Javafest of the year. Eleven performers, including both the guitar class and guitar club, took the stage before a full house. (Far right) Jackson Lean, the son of Norwood District High School guitar class teacher Jason Lean, became the youngest performer to ever grace the stage at the school’s regular Javafest concerts. Jackson sat in with the NDHS guitar club during their three-song performance.

“One summer day, in 2011, friends Jenn K, Lori and Jen P sat around in the backyard, watching their boys all playing, talking about their Relay for Life team for 2012. But that team was never meant to be. In April 2012, Lori’s life was turned upside down when she found out that she had leukemia. Lori never gave up the fight, but on May 19th 2013, her body did.

Jenn Kilsdonk, Lori Cormier and Jen Peacock

“Now, its our turn to not give up. Last year, a couple weeks before Relay, Jenn & I threw together a team in her memory and raised over $1600. This year, our goal is to double that!!”
