Information flowed at waterway association meeting By Judy Backus

EMC News - Marmora - A group of Crowe Lake Waterway Association members gathered at the William Shannon Room on the morning of July 20 for the annual general meeting which included input from several sources. First to speak was Terry Clemens, reeve of Marmora and Lake, who provided an update on a number of items, including the fact that speed signs had been ordered by the municipality and would be placed on Beaver Creek Bridge, for enforcement by the OPP.

Clemens spoke of doing business in a better way and keeping the community moving forward at the same time, mentioning a number of income generating thrusts such as the coming solar installation at the arena which will result in annual income for the municipality of 13,714 for 20 years. The communications tower at the new fire hall, brings $6,000 per year, with the cell phone tower being mounted on the municipal water tower, resulting in $10,000 per year. Rent from the basement level of Deloro Hall, which is used by crews working on the Deloro

cleanup, comes to $6,000. He also spoke of an agreement with Hydro One regarding the compound at the top of the hill and a two-year lease which will bring in $18,000 per year. He explained that plans such as these increase revenues in ways other than taxation. He spoke of a capital levy on each tax bill of $35 which generates a total of $140,000 each year, with the funds this year being targeted toward the purchase of a new loader. Clemens also mentioned the recent announcement of a $1-million grant for work on the Deloro sewage treatment plant. Another point of interest was the fact

that $42,000 had been raised to date for the installation of a splash pad at the park with a hope that a good news announcement would soon be forthcoming. In response to a question regarding to the pumped storage project, Clemens indicated that council and staff were firmly committed to making this happen, and believed it would. Clemens also referred to the hope that a walkway would be installed under the #7 bridge, designed to connect one park with the other, the plan being to provide safer travel between the two.

Water plant tour highlights failsafe operation

By Judy Backus

EMC News - Marmora - The very plain exterior of the local water treatment plant does little to prepare visitors for what’s inside. On July 17, residents

were invited to attend an open house for a ďŹ rst-hand glimpse of the facility and its up-to-the-minute technology. Tours were available, with Environmental Services Manager Victor Reid beginning

Ron Gerow, mayor of HavelockBelmont-Methuen, was next to speak, mentioning that a zoning bylaw relating to waterfront development, passed last November, had been challenged, was under appeal, and was going forward to the Ontario Municipal Board, his hope being that the situation would soon be resolved. With regard to Crowe Valley Conservation Authority, (CVCA) where he is a municipal representative, Gerow said his council had concerns and that he and Sandy Fraser, Marmora and Lakeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s representative, â&#x20AC;&#x153;had been challenged by the board along with two other members â&#x20AC;Ś to investigate some viable options for the board to look at in terms of management and operations.â&#x20AC;? Sandy Fraser provided an update on recent happenings at CVCA, referring to the need for repairs to three of the dams, those being Marmora, Wollaston and Belmont. The ďŹ rst work to be done relates to health and safety of both workers and the public at the dams, with Water Erosion Control Infrastructure (WECI) funding in the amount of $139,000 having been approved. Fraser spoke to a proposed management agreement in conjunction with Quinte Conservation Authority whose boundary abuts that of CVCAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. If it goes ahead, which Fraser says is likely, CVCA would gain in several ways. As he explained, the cost of operations would be reduced considerably and the levies would remain at the 2013 levels â&#x20AC;&#x153;for a number of years.â&#x20AC;? The savings realized from operations would, as he

informative tour of the interesting facility, led by Reid, followed. He mentioned how the water is gravity fed from the intake at the hydro dam on the Crowe River, and as needed, pumps controlled by Program Logical Control (PLC), will speed up or slow down. He pointed out that the plant contains duplicates of every piece of equipment, including a backup computer system, to allow for failsafe operation. Everything is monitored on an ongoing basis, as Reid explained, for things such as transfer, ďŹ&#x201A;ow, pressure, chlorine, and turbidity. The tour included the many sounds and sights of a sophisticated and modern plant in operation, its goal being to provide pure drinking water to the community.

solar flares. Connections to Hydro Quebec in the past were always via dedicated feeds from dedicated sources that were unsupported by additional generation that is part of the Quebec grid. That means if Quebec were to have a sudden need for power, and the feeds to Ontario were supplying our load, Quebec would have no quick access to those Ontario-dedicated energy sources. Those problems have been somewhat reduced with today’s equipment, but it requires expensive AC to DC then back to AC conversion stations to block the instability problems. Such inverter stations must also be constructed to operate in both directions in order to support Quebec in their time of need. Then we must consider the energy needs of Quebec itself. Their energy sources offer them the opportunity to industrialize on a vast scale that would exceed Ontario’s heyday of water power development by Sir Adam Beck. I’m not so sure they would want to commit to long-term, inexpensive supplies to Ontario when that energy might be required at home. Further, Ontario is not the only energy-hungry neighbour that is looking to Quebec for energy supply. Power-hungry New York City and the New England States are ready to buy whatever becomes

Sixty-year reunion coming up

Elder Abuse...Let’s Talk We Can Help





Dear Editor, The July 11 edition of the Central Hastings News carried another letter to the editor purporting to reveal the real cost of nuclear power, but like so many such tales, it only delivers half the story. Yes, nuclear is expensive to build and to de-commission, but what is the Return On Investment (ROI)? Now those kinds of financial dealings are out of my area of expertise, but nuclear power is the cheapest energy source after water power when you examine the cost per kWh. If Ontario had relied only on out-of-province sources, we would have paid top dollar for imported energy, and ended up with nothing in the way of energy sources to support, in time of need, the North American Power Grid from which one of your readers would have us purchase our energy supplies. The suggestion was made that Quebec hydraulic sources could provide cheap and clean power, and that has been considered for years. The underlying problem has always been one of system stability. Any attempts to tie in with the Quebec grid have resulted in power swings or oscillations that have severed the connections. The long power lines required would also be a massive undertaking, and their extreme length would leave them vulnerable to the impact of

Dear Editor, Although most readers may think 2014 is a long way ahead, the 1954-1955 Campbellford High School Grade 9 class is already planning a summer reunion for next year, to mark 60 years since we attended.

available. This means the highest bidder will win that battle, and victory won’t come cheap. Those Quebec hydraulic sources might not always be available to us or even the people of Quebec. Hitching ourselves to the Quebec energy wagon could prove very costly in the long run. Some few years ago I was privy to a report that suggested some models of global warming had indicated a serious, future reduction of rainfall over both Quebec and Labrador. No rain equals reduced river flow, and with that comes a lower energy output. That’s not something we should pin our hopes on. The question of nuclear safety is a valid one, but the comparisons with other accidents are not valid. Ontario is not located on geological fault lines such as those of the Pacific Rim, and specifically Japan. The CANDU reactor design is one of the world’s safest. In fact it’s so safe that some years ago I was told by an American nuclear physicist that such a reactor could not possibly function. To this day I’m not sure if he believed my description of how the CANDU does operate. Finally we must deal with the subject of so-called “green” power. One letter writer claimed that nuclear is heavily subsidized, but paying home-based micro-FIT

Teeth cleaning services needn’t be expensive Dear Editor, In reply to the very honest and realistic Letter to the Editor by Mr. Garry Herschberg of Havelock published in your July 4 issue, we agree wholeheartedly that the cost of dentistry in this province has become “obscene.” Mr. Herschberg addresses the fact that in other parts of the world reasonable charges abound; the USA, Mexico and Costa Rica are a few such places that we can confirm his statement. Procedures are a fraction of the cost charged by

some greedy Ontario dentists who charge much more than the fee schedule for their profession. We suggest anyone who wants to do something about this and revolt against the establishment and the high costs we are paying to make an appointment with a Dental Hygiene Clinic (there are numerous such clinics in and around Trenton and Belleville). There you can have your teeth cleaned and checked by highly skilled RDH professionals who charge considerably less for those who need regular teeth

solar projects about 80 cents per kWh, and commercial solar and wind projects about 40 cents per kWh is a very large subsidy when compared with nuclear’s five or six cents per kWh. And the elephant in the room that is never mentioned by anyone is the fact that every Watt of wind or solar energy MUST be backed up with some form of real generation. Therefore we must build rapid-start power plants, probably gas-fired, to replace solar power at night or when it’s cloudy, and for days when the wind doesn’t blow. These plants would then sit idle while the wind/solar supply is working, only to jump into action when the notoriously unreliable “green” sources fail. Nobody ever considers that extra cost of “green” power. Nor is the fact that we actually pay adjacent utilities such as Con-Ed or PASNY to take our surplus “green” energy. How’s that for added and hidden cost! Now for those out there that have got the idea into their heads that I work for Ontario Power Generation, I don’t. I do not now, nor have I ever been employed by OPG. I have spent 35 years in the electronics and energy industry, but none of that was with OPG.

OPINION EMC Editorial As it happens, I was in Detroit this month. I went to see the art and the architecture, domains in which Detroit is still one of the richest cities in the United States. It’s broken, and it’s Gwynne Dyer broke, and now it’s officially bankrupt too. But bankruptcy is actually a device for escaping from unpayable debt. All over the world, Detroit’s bankruptcy is being used as an excuse to pore over what’s sometimes called “ruin porn”: pictures of the rotting, empty houses that still stand and the proud skyscrapers that have already been torn down. There’s even a self-guided tour of “the ruins of Detroit” available on the Internet: people take a melancholy pleasure in contemplating the calamitous fall of a once-great city. Two-thirds of Detroit’s population have fled in the past fifty years, but there were specific reasons why Detroit fell into decline, and there are also reasons to believe that it could flourish again— not as a major manufacturing centre, perhaps, but “major manufacturing centres” probably don’t have a bright long-term future anywhere. There are other ways to flourish, and Detroit has some valuable resources. The events that triggered the city’s decline are well known. Large numbers of African-Americans from the southern states migrated to Detroit to meet the demand for factory workers during and after World War II. Being mostly unskilled, they started in the worst jobs—and even after they had acquired the skills, they stayed in low-paying jobs because of racial prejudice. Spurned by the unions and victimised by a racist police force, they eventually

Connected to your community

Motor City rioted in the summer of 1967. Brutal policing made matters worse and hundreds were killed, but the worst consequence was the fear that the violence engendered. The great majority of the whites just left town. I first went to Detroit a couple of months after the riots, and driving into the city the fear was actually visible. The traffic lights are spaced far apart on Woodward Avenue, and as each light turned green all the cars would accelerate away—and then, if the next light was still red, they would slow more and more until they were barely crawling, but they dared not stop for fear of being attacked. Then, finally, the light would turn green, and they would race away through the intersection—only to go through the whole process again as they approached the next light. It was this unreasoning fear that caused the massive “white flight” to the suburbs and the hollowing out of Detroit. The big automobile companies also took fright, and the new car plants were built elsewhere. As the jobs disappeared and the population dropped, the tax base fell even faster, for most of the people left behind in the city were poor or unemployed African-Americans. The city could no longer afford to provide good police or medical services, so even more people left. This vicious circle has lasted half a century, exacerbated by much corruption and maladministration. This month’s declaration of bankruptcy is a brutal measure, for much of the debt being repudiated is the pensions of city employees, but it may give the city’s government enough leeway to begin rebuilding public services. If they are restored, much else could follow. Let me explain what brought me to Detroit early this month. We were doing what we dubbed the “Rust Belt Art and Architecture Tour”: driving from Buffalo

Not for the queasy to Cleveland and then to Detroit, ending up in Chicago. All these cities took a terrible beating as the industries they were built on died or moved overseas (except Chicago, which is “too big to fail”). But three generations ago, when they were the industrial heartland of the United States, they were very rich—at just the right time. The first decades of the 20th century were the heyday of art deco, the most beautiful architectural style of the modern era. That was also the period when newly rich captains of industry could scoop up bucket-loads of new European and American art: impressionist, expressionist, abstract, the lot—and they lived mostly in what are now the Rust Belt cities. So they put up dozens of art deco towers: the Guaranty Building in downtown Detroit is my candidate for the world’s most beautiful office building. They filled their homes with best of modern art—and, in the end, donated most of it to the local art galleries. Even in Detroit, where so much has been lost, more than half of those buildings are still there. So is all of the art. Other cities would kill for these assets. In a post-industrial economy where people have more choice about where they live, they are assets that can actually attract population—especially since, in Detroit’s case, the people who left didn’t go far. Most of them are still out there in the suburbs that surround Detroit. The city of Detroit’s population has fallen from 2 million to 700,000 over the past 50 years, but the metropolitan area’s population has stayed stable at around four and a half million for all of that time. The job, really, is to bridge the devastated middle ring of low-income Detroit housing and reconnect the outer suburbs with the city centre. Detroit can rise again. It just takes the right strategy.

power grid. During the course of the negotiations, we agreed to let them take the 18 century-old trees down. In return they agreed to completely clean up everything including the stumps. They also agreed to replant 18 smaller 15-foot trees back onto the property. We really miss our big trees, but in the long run we have our privacy back and there will be less maintenance for both Hydro One and my family. The real point to this letter is, that during the whole process both Rob and Bo (Hydro One) treated us with the utmost respect and care. Not only

that, but their subcontractors who did the actual cleanup work, Tom, Fran and Christa from Kawartha Utilities (along with their crew) were amazing. Finally, I have to thank Frank and Ursula from Leo Landscaping (and their crew) for not only how they worked but the care they took planting these very big trees. It has been an eye-opening experience working with people who showed true conscience, dedication, and kindness. Thank you to all the people who helped us make this a wonderful and smooth transition. Respectfully, Ralph Blom, Brighton

EMC Editorial - As I’ve often said, working at a newspaper isn’t really like other jobs. Those of us silly enough to choose this profession are a quirky bunch to say the least. So when people sometimes ask, as one did this past week while I was getting my hair cut, where the inspiration comes from to fill this space, the answer often lies in some conversation we’ve had in the office. We aren’t by any means as politically correct as one might think from reading the paper. Far from it. I don’t remember how the conversation started but somehow we got on the subject of things that ended up in our mouths by mistake. Now everyone has a story or two about sucking in a blackfly or ten at the height of blackfly season. That’s almost a gimme. If you spend any time outdoors and consider breathing a necessity of life, you will no doubt inhale a blackfly which will then become lodged in your windpipe, usually just before you’re about to deliver the funniest punch line in the history of the world after spinning a yarn for three or four minutes. After coughing and gagging for a minute or two, the blackfly will then become dislodged and you’ll chase it around your mouth with your tongue until finally getting it lined up to spit out. The down side of the experience is, there will be no way to recap your story and deliver your punch line. The plus side … your antics and subsequent humiliation will be funnier than anything you could have said. In my case, my office story related to stopping at the cheese factory on my way home from work last Friday. I’ve long since figured out that those two paper strips on the plastic closure of a bag of curd were meant to be pulled in opposite directions to open the bag. Mrs. Bush didn’t raise any dummies. Unfortunately, the bag I purchased only had one so I was forced to pull the whole contraption to the top of the bag to get in. No worries; that first piece of delectable saltiness had reached my lips before I’d left the parking lot. When I got home, the dogs were on me before I’d even managed to get through the door. So after two rounds of canine curd, I spied one of those bonus morsels in the bottom of the bag; you know the ones with two or three long pieces of curd wedged together that should come with a heart attack warning. I jammed them into my mouth, felt the saliva flood in and started chewing. I’d barely gotten started when the texture didn’t seem quite right. Something else was in there and it wasn’t cheese. But there was so much glorious curd in there, I wasn’t about abort my mission and waste my weekly treat.

Thanks Hydro One for a great job Dear Editor, In February, I was approached by Hydro One representatives concerning the century-old trees lining the front of the property. Having heard the horror stories about Hydro One and property owners with trees, I was a little worried. Rob Skitch and Bo (Hydro One) explained they would be bringing a new 44kV line to supply Brighton past the front of my house, and this would entail either shortening my trees by 40 feet or cutting them down all together. The reason for this new power line was to supply Brighton with a more reliable

My tongue got to probing. My face got that look on it that you get if you’re stuck in a small hockey dressing room with someone who had kielbasa for lunch. I imagined every gross thing that had ever been found in a box of cereal or bottle of pop. And then I found it. It was the darn plastic tape tie from the bag. It had somehow jumped back into the bag. When I was done my story, Karen stepped up to the plate with a tale short and sweet. “The worst thing has to be when you end up chewing on a piece of tinfoil by mistake.” Synchronized shuddering followed. That was pretty well the end of the conversation. Tin foil on teeth ruled the day. I remember a time in university when spaghetti was on the menu at least four times a week and a buddy offered me a box of one-minute porridge for variety. I relished the change of pace and was through about three packets before I noticed some of the oats had legs. Somewhere along the line some eggs had found their way into the process and hatched in the packets. Not too quick on the uptake back then but then again the boiling water had put a stop to any movement so it was all good. Many strange things have ended up on my palate along the way to present day including a large moth on a bike trip across Canada. It’s a regular joke at our house that if there’s something foreign in whatever we’re having to eat, it will end up on my plate. If there’s a piece of eggshell in the omelet, I’ll get it. If there’s a piece of stem attached to a green bean, it lands in my mouth. If my wife Mare loses a hair while cooking, it will become stuck between my teeth. The worst time for foreign objects always seem to occur when we’re sitting in a sub shop. About two bites in, nine times out of ten, I’ll grimace and say, “Man, I got wood.” Mare will shake her head, sigh and respond, “You always have wood.” People must feel sorry for me because I get the feeling they’re looking my way when I say that. Maybe it’s just empathy because they’ve also bitten into the woody part of the hot pepper or that woody part of the tomato core close to the stem. Mare never ever seems to get wood for some reason but she sure smiles when I do. Her lack of grimacing while eating is probably because she rarely chews her food more than once or twice before swallowing. It’s not right that I always bear the burden. But I take solace in the fact you’re never more than six feet away from a spider at any given time and supposedly people eat more than one a year while sleeping. Guess which one of us sleeps with her mouth wide open ... Distribution Kathy Labelle 613-966-2034, ext 512 Production Manager Glenda Pressick 613-966-2034, ext 520 Read us online at

There is overwhelming evidence that a group of systemic insecticides named neonicotinoids—chemically related to nicotine—are contributing to beehive contamination, bee mortality, and unprecedented population declines. Both the manufacturers and government regulatory agencies are well aware of the toxicity of these chemicals. For example, the systemic insecticide “ADMIRE” has been used in Canada for over ten years to control insect pests on over 40 fruit and vegetable crops. The manufacturer’s product labelling for ADMIRE, as well as its Material Safety Data Sheet (a mandatory document under Health Canada’s Hazardous Products Act), state that ADMIRE is “highly toxic to bees,” “extremely toxic to aquatic invertebrates,” and “toxic to birds.” Themanufacturer’sremedyto “protect” bees from the toxicity of ADMIRE is to caution users, on the product labelling, that the insecticide is not to be used on flowering crops or weeds if bees are visiting the treatment

area (emphasis mine). What a noble remedy. Direct exposure, however, is only the tip of the iceberg. ADMIRE and other “systemic” insecticides are chemically designed to maximize effectiveness, so they have a very insidious side. As the name suggests, once they are applied to crops, seeds or to the soil, the insecticides infiltrate a plant’s systems and are transported to its leaves, flowers, nectar and pollen. In this manner, the insecticides persist for days, weeks, and even months. Accordingly, in treated fields and orchards, bees are indirectly exposed to these insecticides throughout a growing season and at all stages of development in the hive—whether or not bees are present in a crop at the time of application. According to the Ontario Beekeepers’ Association web site, scientific research has shown that “there is no safe level of exposure for honey bees: even very small quantities of neonicotinoids affect pollinator species.” The association is


is certainly in peril if bees and beepollination disappear. I urge your readers to take a walk in a flower garden or along a country road in Hastings County and see if they can spot a honeybee; or a bumblebee; or a bee of any kind.

working hard to minimize environmental risks to bees and to prevent a recurrence of the incidents of 2012, which involved the acute and chronic poisoning of honey bees by neonicotinoid insecticides in many parts of agricultural Ontario. In this confusing world of corporate spin, political propaganda, and other expressions of bovine dung, it is often hard to know what to believe and whom to trust. In Europe, where bees are also disappearing at alarming rates, the pesticide industry continues its policy of denial. One leading manufacturer recently stated in a press release that “a decision in Europe to restrict use of neonicotinoid-containing products would not improve bee health.” That’s quite a statement, isn’t it? The company’s own documents filed with Health Canada’s Hazardous Products reveal that two of its neonicotinoid-based insecticides (ADMIRE and CONCEPT) are “highly toxic to bees.” Common sense and my scientific training tell me that this type of corporate logic is seriously flawed. Finally, is it only me, or is anyone else offended by the marketing of a systemic insecticide under such a benign name? In my opinion, “Admire” is an appropriate name for a cuddly teddy bear, not a lethal insecticide. Teddy bears I do trust. During the 1960s and 1970s, we almost lost for all time the continental populations of bald eagle and peregrine falcon. Governments listened to the scientific community and banned the use of DDT. Eagle and falcon populations are recovering. Will governments listen and respond this time to safeguard bees, songbirds and our family farms? I urge your readers to sign the on-line petition <www.> to ban neonicotinoidbased pesticides in Ontario. Can our children and grandchildren survive in a world without bees?

Even Japan after its horrendous accident is restarting its nuclear power reactors. If climate change is man-made (I believe it is) and we as a society do not change our way of life (I believe we can not/will not) then nuclear energy is, at present, our only option. I should like to address two points raised in the abovementioned letters. Canada’s nuclear power generation safety record with its Candu system is faultless. The NRU accident was the result of the wrong valves being opened and flooding the basement with heavy water. NRX has, to my knowledge, never had an accident. Both NRX and NRU are (were as far as NRX is concerned) experimental and isotope producer reactors not power generators. The waste disposal problem is a large one but one that has been solved except for the Not-In-My-Back-Yard syndrome. A large cavern excavated in the hard rock of the Sudbury area is ready to accept radioactive waste encased in glass, for permanent storage. John Morralee, Belleville

Queen of the Furrow Committee Chair Natalie Doornbos (seated) and current Queen Brianna Dracup are encouraging other teens and young women to consider taking on the role of agricultural ambassador. Photo: Richard Turtle

EMC News - Foxboro - Natalie Doornbos is a staunch supporter of the annual Queen of the Furrow competition and wants to ensure Hastings County continues to send a representative to the International Plowing Match each fall. This year marks Doornbos’ entry into the organizational side of the competition, taking over from previous Queen of the Furrow Committee Chair Pam Meiklejohn (Storms). Like her predecessor, Doornbos has her own experiences as agricultural ambassador to draw from along with the assistance of a list of long-time volunteers including current representative Brianna Dracup. And while Doornbos admits it is disappointing to see other agricultural communities drop out of the competition owing to a lack of interest, she says the position is not only increasingly important but also creates a multitude of possibilities that, for her, have been life changing. And Dracup agrees. “I hadn’t done any public speaking before,” Doornbos says of her entry into the competition and resulting title she held in 2009-2010, “I never plowed and I was never in 4-H. So I was pretty nervous.” And though she shared an agricultural background and understanding with her peers, Doornbos admits to feeling a bit of an outsider for her usual preference of remaining in the background. But after years of quietly attending the Hastings County Plowing Match and Farm Show with family, taking in the annual Queen of the Furrow cer-

emonies, “I just got up the courage and did it. It’s something I always wanted to do.” And the experience was nothing but positive. “I got so much out of it,” she says, adding it improved her confidence and communications skills, developed contacts and increased her understanding of an industry she remains a part of. Queen of the Furrow meetings, in preparation for the August Plowing Match, are currently being held for potential candidates and there is plenty of room for others to take part. While still early, two teens have already indicated an interest, Doornbos says, but adds she would like to see at least half a dozen competitors. “You can try more than once,” she says, noting under current guidelines the maximum reign is two years so Dracup will be handing over the tiara on the second day of the Plowing Match. Candidates must be between the ages of 16 and 24 with an interest in agriculture, but the reigning Queen says the public appearances and time requirements can be easily scheduled around school, work, chores and social activities. “When people ask how much time it takes up,” Dracup says, “[I say] it’s not very much.” But the rewards can be significant, the women say, and can extend well into the future. Further information about the program, or to find out how to get involved, contact Natalie Doornbos at 613-8494427 or Brianna at 613-922-5733.

EMC News - Stirling - StirlingRawdon Police responded to 52 calls for service last week including the sighting of a wayward bear spotted in a residential area. Police Chief Brian Foley says the bear was seen jumping onto the hood of a vehicle on Nancy Street in the village last Friday

night at about 10 p.m. No damage resulted and the bear wandered away, he says, but adds the presence of bears, particularly within town limits, should be reported to police. Foley is uncertain how many people may have seen the bear on Friday.

“You expect it,” he says of bear sightings in rural areas of the township, but adds reports of sightings in the village are rare. A second report of a bear in the backyard of a Cooke Road residence, several kilometres north of the village, was also received two days later. The bear had no appar-

ent reason to stay, so wandered off into the bush. Police are also investigating damage to the Kingdom Hall carport which occurred some time overnight July 18. According to police, an unknown vehicle driving through the carport caused

Giant candy a treat for SFSC EMC News - Stirling - It’s not going to be easy to eat without sharing, but someone is going to win a 26-pound Gummy Bear. Stirling General Mercantile owner Tina Koonings is putting the large purple bear up for grabs as a fund raiser with the hopes a little bit of sweet encouragement will translate into a few dollars for the Stirling Figure Skating Club (SFSC). “It just seemed like a really fun idea,” she says of the unusually large helping of candy. “I’m not sure how you should eat it, but I think I’d go to the deli and get them to slice it.” Koonings recently unveiled the mammoth mutation of the well-known chewy candy at her West Front Street store, joined by representatives from the local skating club. Tickets, at a cost of 25 cents each, are also available at the store. “This is really great,” says SFSC CanSkate Co-ordinator Shirley Deck. Stirling Figure Skating Club member Courtney LaPalm holds the 26-pound “We want to thank Tina and Stirling Gummy Bear that is being raffled at Stirling Mercantile on West Front Mercantile for their support,” she says.

Summer Bug Crawl attracts VW owners By Richard Turtle

EMC News - Stirling - There was a conspicuous cluster of Bugs crawling through StirlingRawdon last weekend as a group of Volkswagen owners rallied together to raise some money for Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Hastings and Prince Edward Counties. Organizer Kerry Ramsay, owner of Chickadelic Salvage and Design in Stirling, was pleased with the turnout for the family event, which included a colourful entourage of six iconic Volkswagen Beetles, and raised $500 for the local agency. It also provided participants from the surrounding area an opportunity to visit some nearby attractions and enjoy a leisurely

tour of the countryside. And the weather during the midday excursion was nothing less than perfect, Ramsay says. After meeting at the Stirling store in the morning, Bug owners and their passengers headed north to Amazing Graze Alpaca Farm before returning to Stirling and a stop at Farmtown Park. After a picnic at Sager Conservation Area, the Bugs returned to their starting point at Chickadelic for door prizes before departing for home. During their morning visit to the alpaca farm, the group of about 20 people met with owners Marj Brady and Steve Martin who offered a few insights into the business of raising the animals for their fleece as well

as the products available. Visitors also got a glimpse of the newest arrival on the farm during their visit. Then it was on to Farmtown Park for a look back at the area’s history before a lunch break and a view from the conservation area lookout tower. Sponsors included Belleville Volkswagen, Volkswagen Canada, The Pop Shoppe, A&W and Chickadelic Salvage & Design. With plans of making the Summer Bug Crawl an annual event, Ramsay continues to organize other community events through her business. Details of special events and featured activities are available on the In- Volkswagen Beetle owners and their families arrived at Amazing Graze Alpaca Farm last weekend during the Summer Bug ternet at <>.

Boat tours around pristine Crowe Lake EMC Business - Marmora Armed with a captain’s hat and his pontoon boat, longtime boater Doug Alcock recently launched Crowe Lake Cruises, offering casual tours around Marmora’s waterways. Alcock inherited his boat when he bought a lakefront property more than a decade ago. He says the 28foot vessel held lots of fond memories for people living on the lake, and he was encouraged to once again set sail on the Crowe. “Everyone’s really picked up on it,” he said. “It’s been fantastic, they’re loving it. There’s no one else doing it.” Crowe Lake Cruises offers tours anywhere from 90 minutes to three hours and can accommodate groups of up to eight people. Regular day tours can be booked daily from 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Alcock also offers sunset cruises during the evening from 7:30 to 9 p.m., and on the weekend, cruises include a stop-off at the Crowe Bar, a local restaurant serving up delicious food on the Crowe. Although there’s no alcohol permitted on board the boat, Alcock said cruisers

are welcome to bring a picnic lunch and refreshments along for the ride. A boater who loves spending time on the water, Alcock said he’s open to taking tourists down Beaver Creek or showcasing the lake’s rich history. “Beaver Creek is a really nice tour, too. It’s a real adventure, it’s right into nature,” he said, adding he also visits sites like Booster Park and Blairton Bay. As part of his business, Alcock also offers free photographs as a memory of the trip, and offers young passengers the chance to have their photograph taken in the captain’s seat. After the trip is over, customers receive their photos in an email. So far, customers have provided positive feedback about the business venture. “It’s been nice to see them reminiscing,” he said. “That’s what it’s really all about—lifelong memories.” For more information, contact Alcock at 613-7434166, by email at <>, or on Facebook at <www.>.

Schabas also said that Kempenaar had disregarded known issues such as a need for expanded parking, sewer problems on North Park Street, and the need for a new generator. “He presented a business plan that was just fundamentally wrong,” Schabas said. “Unfortunately there were some mathematical errors in that and it grossly overstated the financial benefit of what he was promoting.” Belleville city Councillor Jack Miller joined Kyte as the lone opposition to moving ahead to the tender stage for the new facility. Kyte said that ideally he would have like to have seen the opinion of an additional architect considered before moving

EMC News - Belleville - The Hastings Price Edward Counties Health Unit voted 10 - 2 in a recorded vote on Thursday, July 18, to move ahead to the tender stage for a new, roughly $13-million building to replace their aging facility at 179 North Park Street in Belleville, however, the controversy may not end there. Quinte West Councillor Paul Kyte, who was one of two board members to vote against moving to the tender stage, said he has filed a complaint with the Ontario Ombudsman’s office to investigate why a board session discussing cost estimates for the building that same day was closed to the public. “My concern is that they had an in-camera meeting to discuss proceeding with the building … they were providing the board with estimates for the new building,” Kyte said. “I think it should have been transparent to the public. There’s enough questions already squirming around this

building … I just think it brought more of a cloud over the issue by going behind closed doors, and I thought the meeting was inappropriate.” Much of the discussion during the meetings on July 18 centred around the recently offered opinion of local developer Peter Kempenaar, that the health unit could simply be renovated for roughly $7 million as opposed to building a brand new facility for significantly more. Medical officer of health Dr. Richard Schabas struck back at Kempenaar during the July 18 meeting, pointing out issues including seemingly double counted numbers and missing design elements from Kempenaar’s plan. “Fundamentally, the proposal [Kempanaar] put forward … missed out on a number of key elements of cost that are unavoidable, things like our project management costs and things related to the sewer issues,” Schabas said. “Basically there was about $3 million in things that

the Royals taking the win. In their second game, the Royals faced host Eldorado, taking a 4 - 2 lead into the second inning. After two complete, the Royals held their two-run lead as the score climbed to 7 - 5 but the clubs drew even in the third when a pair of Eldorado base runners crossed the plate. The teams remained deadlocked until the sixth inning when a single Eldorado run was followed by a five-run onslaught from the Royals that put the game out of reach. Eldorado was unable to score in the seventh ending the game at 21 - 8. Pitching duties in the Championship game win were shared by Musclow and teammate Ethan Osborne.

Lanigan wins SDMSA coaching award

SDMSA Coach and Jonathon Swallow Memorial Award winner Tammy Lanigan is surrounded by her players after accepting the trophy for coaching excellence last weekend. By Richard Turtle

EMC Sports - Stirling - On the heels of a late night thunderstorm, members of the Stirling and District Minor Soccer Association (SDMSA) saw perfect weather through the day Saturday as the 2013 season ended with the annual Tournament Day at the Parrott Fields. Players from the associationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 26 teams, split by age group into six divisions, have been gathering twice a

week since the end of May and the friendly competition wrapped up with medallion and SDMSA keepsake presentations as well as the handing out of team photographs. Several players gathered for an impromptu team shot immediately after this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recipient of the Jonathon Swallow Memorial Award for Excellence in Coaching was announced. In presenting the award, SDMSA representative Tawnya Smith praised the

coach and former player who has spent more than a decade as a coach in Stirling. And, said Smith before announcing the name, this coach has always put the kids first. A teary-eyed Tammy Lanigan accepted a hug before receiving her award, which she immediately shared with her players who gathered to congratulate her. The award is presented to the coach who most embraces and demonstrates mutual respect, skills development, positive feedback and encouragement, innovation and communication. Nomination forms available to players and parents Association President Tom Martin was pleased with the turnout on the final day of the season and says the weather, unlike some

years, was ideal for the fivehour event that for many ended in a long lineup for lunch. SDMSA officials also extended their thanks to sponsors, volunteers, referees and parents for helping make 2013 another successful season for the players. Among those participating as adult volunteers and officials were several former players who have spent more than half their lives as members of the association that will mark its 20th anniversary season next year. Currently on the lookout for volunteers next season, the SDMSA is holding its annual general meeting in November but will be accepting applications for various volunteer positions until that time. Information on available positions is

available on the Internet at Tom Martin at 613-395<stirlinganddistirctminor- 1363 or emailing <trmartin> or by phoning>.

SDMSA Players and coaches wait at the awards table as Colleen Fraser checks her team lists on the season ending Tournament Day.

EMC Sports - Spring Brook - The “McKeown Motor Sales” Spring Brook Squirts rep team has had a strong season so far. The team plays in the “401 league” and is currently sitting with an 8 win and 3 loss record for the season. The high calibre fastpitch has provided some great entertainment for the loyal Spring Brook fans recently. On July 4, Napanee came to Spring Brook for what turned out to be the most dramatic game of the season so far. Starting pitcher Brayden Bailey engaged in a pitching duel with the Napanee starting pitcher. Both pitchers effectively worked the full seven innings, and the score was tied 2 - 2 going into the bottom half of the seventh inning. Dyson Cassidy started off the inning for Spring Brook with a walk. Cassidy ended up on third base with two out, and stole home on a passed ball for the “walk off” win for the Royals. On July 11, Port Perry visited Spring Brook to take on the Royals. The previous week, the Royals were able to defeat Port Perry 9 - 0 in Port Perry, with Bailey pitching the complete game shutout. However, this time, Port Perry’s starting pitcher was able to keep the Royals bats better under control. The score was tied 3 - 3 going into the bottom of the fifth inning. Karsten Leonard delivered a clutch two out RBI single to put the Royals in the lead. The Royals were able to chase the Port Perry starting pitcher from the game in the bottom of the sixth inning. Nathan O’Connor and Lauren Kennedy both unleashed monster hits in the sixth inning that ended up producing another Royals run, and a 5 - 3 lead going into the top of the seventh inning. Port Perry was not about to go home yet, however, as they were able to get their first two men on base to start off the seventh inning. Royals “vet” Kurt McCann decided to take things into his own hands, and snagged a line drive at his short stop position, and tossed back

Bringing Stanley home By Steve Jessel

EMC Sports - Belleville Stanley Cup winner and Belleville native Andrew Shaw made a triumphant return to the Quinte area on Thursday, bringing with him the burnished silver sheen of the one-and-only Stanley Cup. First arriving at the CFB Trenton Museum for a photo session with hundreds of fans and admirers, Shaw then arrived in the city of Belleville in style, being flown by helicopter before touching down at Zwicks Island Park. While roughly 100 fans and members of the media met Shaw as he descended, the real highlight of the afternoon came when Shaw brought the almost 35-pound trophy to the blisteringly hot confines of Memorial Arena in Belleville, where hundreds of additional hockey fans greeted the cup with cheers and endless camera flashes. “Now there’s a weekend I’ll never forget!” Shaw

posted on Twitter on Monday, July 22, shortly after his trip home. Shaw, a member of the 2012-2013 Stanley Cup winning Chicago Blackhawks was drafted in the fifth round, 139th overall in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft after spending his OHL career split between the Niagara IceDogs and the Owen Sound Attack. Shaw made his NHL debut on January 5, 2012, against the Philadelphia Flyers, recording a fight just three minutes into the game, and later scoring his first NHL goal. Shaw, a former Quinte Red Devils player, finished his rookie season with 12 goals and 23 points in 37 games played, following that up with nine goals and 15 points in 48 games this past regular season. Shaw was a major contributor to the Blackhawks’ Stanley Cup run, recording five goals, four assists and 35 penalty minutes through 23 games.

Perhaps Shaw’s most memorable moment came in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup final, where he scored the triple-overtime winner to

Campbellford woman teaches beading while helping paint in Tanzania

EMC Lifestyles - Campbellford - Seeing the smiling faces of children at a rural school in Tanzania, children she and a group of volunteers helped, changed the way Glenis Buchanan looks at her world now. “The first time I saw the children in the schoolroom they were all sitting down and looking up at you with big brown eyes. Emotionally, I started to cry,” said Buchanan. She was talking about a trip she took with her cousin Lynn Bird who is both a Rotarian and the director and treasurer of ABCD: Art Building Children’s Dreams. Bird, who is the Volunteer Monitor and Evaluator at Canadian Rotary Collaboration for International Development, knew about the needs of schoolchildren in Tanzania and decided to join a team headed to Moshi to do some volunteer work. She is no stranger to these types of trips where projects are all about “sweat equity.” The organization ABCD describes its vision “as a world where vulnerable children can achieve their dreams.” This Canadian charity raises funds to help children in rural Tanzania complete their education. Their mission is to provide financial assistance to the schools and families

or orphans and children at risk by using the children’s art to raise funds for their education and for community development. Projects in Tanzania are strong supported by a number of Rotary clubs. “Our Rotary District 7070 includes Campbellford to Picton, west to Highway #27, west of Toronto and as far as Alliston,” she noted. “We are supporting 60 individual students with their school fees and we have six breakfast programs feeding about 2,000 children,” she added. “We were a total of 24 on this team,” she told the Trent Hills Independent. The goal of the volunteers on this trip was to paint the school in preparation for a library. “We help put libraries in the schools,” she explained. The “mission” to Tanzania was a trip Buchanan said she had to make. “She surprised the heck out of me,” said Bird with candor. “She was painting library walls and put so much into it. After the first day she was trekking up and down those hills. Her contribution was incredible,” she added, praising her cousin for her effort. Besides painting, Buchanan also made use of another of her talents in Tanzania. She showed the girls and boys how to make jewellery, by beading.

“I went to an after school program and taught the young girls crafts and they beaded necklaces and they made paper puppets that move. The boys did necklaces with their names on them,” said Buchanan. “We made rings one time.” She had taken beads with her on the trip. Rotary members had taken crayons, pencils and more for the children. What struck her most was how happy the children all were, in spite of their circumstances. “The students had uniforms but they were old and tattered,” she said. “They were very happy, that’s the first thing that comes to my mind when I think of them. I’ve come to the conclusion that if you’re poor it doesn’t mean you are unhappy,” she added. For Buchanan the trip was also about learning to appreciate her home back here. “I really learned to appreciate my At her home just outside Campbellford, Glenis Buchanan talked with the Trent Hills Independent about own surroundings and what we have,” a trip she made to a rural school near Moshi, Tanzania, where she volunteered helping schoolchildren by painting the walls of their school library and teaching them beading.

Classic Country Music Reunion EMC Entertainment - Trenton - The city will once again play host to classic country musicians from across the province and beyond when the 22nd Annual Classic Country Music Reunion and Jamboree returns to Centennial Park in Trenton, August 1, 2, 3 and 4, 2013. The annual Reunion and Jamboree weekend was started in 1992 by Canadian musicians who perform traditional country music who quite frankly “got tired of only seeing their friends at funerals.” They desired to create an annual weekend where musicians, singers and fans could come together to play and enjoy the music they love best, as well as encourage young people to get involved with the more classic style of country music. “The kind of country music you will hear on our stages for the most part is traditional” says President John Lester of Lindsay.

“At this event you will hear songs made famous by stars like Hank Williams, Kitty Wells, Patsy Cline, Hank Snow, Faron Young, Alan Jackson and Merle Haggard to name a few. Their music is still as popular today as it ever was,” he says. The event features Main Stage Shows Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights at 6:30 at Centennial Park’s outdoor amphitheatre backed up by The Tim Sanders Band, a well-known group in the industry. “We’ve got three great evening main stage shows lined up,” says Lester. “Each night five or six acts will appear. Although we feel everyone on these shows is a special feature, we’re particularly proud to have recently added Canadian legend Johnny Burke to the Sunday night program. He is one of those that helped start this event, and as of last September is a proud member of the Canadian Country Music Hall of • More driving - 13 Hours • Extensive 401 training

The event also offers rough camping for those who wish to stay the entire weekend as well as food vendors, snack bar and other miscellaneous vendors, Sunday morning Gospel show, lots of music, and friendly faces. Those with CDs recorded are welcome to sell them at tables provided in the open mike tent. For the second year in a row the event will host two “Open Fiddle Jam” sessions on both Friday and Saturday from 11:45 a.m. until 12:45 p.m. During these two one-hour sessions fiddle plays of all ages and abilities are invited to join in on the stage in the tent and play together. This will be for the enjoyment of both the players and those in attendance who wish to play along with their backup instruments, or just sit and listen. A new feature for 2013 is being billed as an “Up Close and Personal” guitar workshop with renowned Canadian Country Musician Steve Piticco, taking place Sunday at 12 noon in the tent. Lester is grateful for the ongoing cooperation organizers receive from the City of Quinte West, local sponsors, and the management and staff from the Parks Department. Volunteers will also be selling tickets on a new acoustic guitar that the CCMR committee has procured from Picker’s Paradise in Colborne. Each year event organizers hope to be able to be in a position to donate some of the proceeds from the weekend to a local cause. Several different charities have been supported over the years, including the local Care and Share Food Bank. Weekend passes are currently available in advance at local ticket outlets, and will also be available along with single day tickets at the Centennial Park gate after 12 noon on Thursday, August 1.

Foursome add humour to Hitchcock

EMC Entertainment - Stirling When a murder victim falls into Richard Hannay’s lap, he is left with stories of spies, a map of Scotland and no other option but to run in order to clear his name. In the Alfred Hitchcock version of The 39 Steps, it’s a tale of suspense and intrigue with a myriad of characters and a regular dose of chases and plot twists. In the version now appearing on the Stirling Festival Theatre stage, it is a madcap and fast-paced comedy with only four actors and plenty of hat-tips to Hitchcock himself. The show opened in Stirling last Wednesday afternoon and continues until Saturday, August 27. Featuring SFT regular Debbie Collins, the cast also includes Mark Harapiak as Hannay, Marlene Handrahan and Scott Hurst in a show about international espionage that offers more than a few moments

of levity. In the case of Collins and Hurst, the duo of clowns don a series of hats, at times in ridiculously rapid succession, to portray a throng of characters and bystanders ranging from paperboys to aging bagpipers to pilots and hoboes. But while the show itself is pared down to its minimal cast, it is not short on complexities and relies heavily on the crucial element of comic timing. And the cast was well up for the task. Whether struggling to free himself of the corpse in his lap, attempting to outrun a pair of airplanes or simply keeping track of the characters on hand, Harapiak is the lovably deluded hero often alongside his love of the moment, Handrahan. And in all manner of guises, Collins and Hurst are given ample opportunity to show off their versatility, crossing age and gender boundaries in the blink of

an eye along the way. Collins says it is a treat to be back on the Stirling stage again and is thrilled to be working with such a talented cast. The show, which was running in Orillia before coming to Stirling last week, has had an excellent response, she adds, and is as much fun for the cast as for the audience. And while crowds were hovering around the 100 mark in early performances, theatre officials are confident that numbers will increase as the run continues. “It’s a good, fun show,” says SFT Artistic Director David Vanderlip, adding comments so far had been highly favourable. Two shows are scheduled for tomorrow (Friday) before Saturday night’s final performance at 8 p.m. Tickets ($29 each) are available at the theatre box office The 39 Steps is playing until Saturday at the Stirling Festival Theatre.

George Canyon returning to Stirling By Richard Turtle

EMC News - Stirling - With headliner George Canyon returning to the Stirling Fair and an expanded student bursary program up for grabs, Stirling Agricultural Society organizers are anticipating another busy weekend at the fairgrounds next month. Society Treasurer Roxanne Hearns says the annual celebration of agriculture is marking its 155th year August 15 - 18 and will feature a variety of competitions, demonstrations and displays including the return of demo cross, horse and tractor pulls, goat and beef shows, Homecraft exhibits and the horse show to be held in the new ring. And the society has

also announced that owing to the success of its annual steer auction bursary, the proceeds will now be shared by a pair of area students. “Thanks to the support from our sponsors, the bursary will be split between two students,” Hearns says, adding the rules for eligibility remain the same. Students enrolled in a post-secondary program in an agriculture-related discipline at a recognized institution can apply prior to the fair opening, and those eligible will be included in a draw held during opening ceremonies, August 16. Students must be residents of Hastings, Northumberland, Prince Edward, Peterborough or Lennox and Addington and be present at the

time of the draw to receive the bursary. Full details are available on the Internet at <>. The bursary has been part of the program for seven years, Hearns says, and officials are extremely pleased with the response. On the opening Friday, a live animal from Russett Farms has been auctioned off to the highest bidder, then delivered freezer-ready to the buyer at a later date. Without the ongoing support of various businesses, groups and individuals, as well as the bidding public, she says, the bursary could not have continued. Advance tickets for the Friday night concert, featuring Canyon who first appeared at the fair in 2010, are available in Stirling

at R&S Home Hardware and in Belleville at Laurier Optical until August 13 for $15. Admission at the gate on concert night is $20. Local band Back 40 will also be performing. Wristbands, good for a full-day admission, are also available. And there promises to be something for everyone, Hearns says, with the return of several popular activities, games and rides along with a few changes. The Homecraft division will also be featuring an outdoors display with a fishing theme in the arena. As in previous years, the fair is offering free admission to members of the Canadian Armed Forces and their families.


Rotterdam’s architecturally unusual cube house By John M. Smith

EMC Lifestyles - One of Holland’s most unusual architectural structures, prominently displayed right in the centre of Rotterdam, is its set of Cube Houses. This housing complex, designed by the late Dutch architect Piet Blom, turned several housing units at a 45-degree angle and then the tilted units were placed on hexagon-shaped pylons and attached together. His intention, he said, was to create an unconventional “village” within the city. Therefore, he envisioned each housing unit as a separate “tree” and the entire linked complex as an urban forest. Well, this strange looking tree and forest structure is certainly a very noticeable sight, indeed! When I first gazed upon these Cube Houses, I wondered if they were about to topple over. After all, they didn’t seem to follow any conventional rules of design or traditional angles. And that’s part of the point. They’re intended to look different and to provide the occupant with a new perspective. After seeing this rather strange, unusual exterior, I was definitely curious as to what it would look like from within and I discovered that one of the units is kept for that very purpose. For 2.50 EUR,

visitors can check out the interior in the “Kijk-Kubus” (literally Show Cube), a fully furnished show home that’s open daily between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. Each “Kubuswoning” (Cube House) is built in the shape of a tilted block, with the living quarters on three different levels and with exterior walls that tilt downward to face the ground or upward to face the sun. As I ascended the stairs and entered the triangleshaped lower level, I found myself in the main living area with a kitchen on one side and sloping walls. Because of the slope, I found myself bending over a lot and wary of hitting my head. I then ascended a steep, winding staircase to the next level, with more sloped walls and a bedroom and then ascended again in a similar fashion to the top floor, which offered a nice area for office space or a garden (again in a triangle shape) and windows that faced right into the next unit. Therefore, privacy might be another problem to go along with curvature of the spine. Although I found the Cube House very interesting to visit, it wouldn’t be a place where I’d want to live. However, several people do and apparently enjoy the uniqueness of their dwellings. And the units are not cheap,

for if one came available for you to buy, it would cost you more than $200,000. Then there’d be the challenge of furnishing it, for there are those perpetually sloping walls to deal with and about 100 square metres of total living space. If you’d like to spend the night in one of these structures, contact Stayokay Rotterdam <>, for some of these are now being used as a youth hostel. While I was in the vicinity of Rotterdam’s fascinating Cube Houses, I also checked out some of the area’s other architecturally interesting structures, including the Pencil Tower, a hexagonshaped tower designed by the same architect; the eye-catching, tiered Rotterdam Central Library, the largest public library in the Netherlands; and the Blaak Station which appears to be somewhat reminiscent of a flying saucer. I also visited the very popular Blaak Market and the nearby harbour area, where I saw another striking (yet older) example of Rotterdam architecture: the White House, Europe’s first skyscraper built here in 1898. There are free “Architecture Walking Tour” and “Roaming Rotterdam” guides available from Rotterdam Tourism <www.>. You’ll also find

Rotterdam’s unusual cube houses.

several interesting museums in this Dutch city, including Maritime Museum Rotterdam, Natural History Museum, Kunsthal and Museum Boijmans van Beuningen. Don’t miss seeing the statue of Erasmus, the renowned philosopher who was born here, the Erasmus Bridge (the city’s popular icon), and Delfshaven from where the pilgrims departed on the Mayflower. If you wish to explore the city on your own, you might decide to download the free Rotterdam app on your mobile phone, which has a map and an updated calendar, with the festivals, exhibitions, and events. Another way to see more of the city on the cheap is by purchasing a Rotterdam Welcome Card, for it will give you discounts to many of the city’s attractions and restaurants and includes unlimited travel on the public transport network.

First 2013 TACSTC course graduates 350

By Ross Lees

EMC News - Trenton Three hundred and fifty cadets celebrated the completion of the first two-week introductory course which focuses on teaching cadets more about the various courses offered through the Air Cadet program last Friday. The first cadets to graduate this summer from the General Training Course at the Trenton Air Cadet Summer Training Centre (TACSTC) learned about the introductory courses offered at summer training centres across Canada, including courses on drill and ceremonial parades, military bands, recreational sports, aviation technology and aerospace as well as flying itself. Approximately 1,500 cadets will attend the training centre during the summer. Reviewing Officer Lieutenant-Colonel Jean Maisonneuve, the Commanding Officer of 429 (Tranpost) Squadron, noted the learning began almost immediately for the newest cadets at summer camp. “For a lot of you, this is the first time you’ve been away from home for such an extended period of time,” he stated. “Unlike home, you had to get up at six in the morning, make your beds, and clean up after yourselves, all of this without any parental intervention. I’m sure the

Lieutenant-Colonel Jean Maisonneuve, 429 (Transport) Squadron Commanding Officer speaks with a band member during his inspection of the cadets July 19. Photo: Ross Lees

mothers here today are wondering if this trend is going to continue.” He hoped when all was said and done, the cadets would remember their experience with fond memories, including the cooling shower supplied by 8 Wing firefighters to combat the heat wave, and that the cadets took note of the many unusual aircraft flying overhead during their stay at 8 Wing this summer, including the Harvard, the Fleet Finch and the de Havilland Tiger Moth, to say nothing of the C-17. Maisonneuve congratulated the cadets and their squadron leaders for their efforts throughout the camp. “You should be proud you have completed two weeks of having


fun, hard work, challenging yourselves and working as a team and all of you should be proud you completed this course,” he noted. Mr. Tommy Thomas, representing the Ontario Provincial Committee of the Air Cadet League of Canada also congratulated the cadets on completing the course during gruelling weather. “I hope you made many friends here and will complete many more courses in the future,” he said. Commanding Officer of TACSTC Major Darryl Rolfe was impressed with the turnout of parents and guardians for this first graduation parade. “I’m in awe of the number of you here today,” he noted. “As parents and supporters, I’m sure

you’ve been happy to have the cadets away from home, but I’m very sure you’ll be happy to have them come home, as well.” He also hoped many of the cadets would have enjoyed their experience to the point they would want to come back and take part in the more advanced India Squadron top overall cadet receiving the Lieutenant-Colonel S.L. courses offered in subsequent years in Beaton trophy is Cadet Rochelle Sealy from Ontario Provincial Committee the cadets. of the air Cadet League of Canada Mr. Tommy Thomas.

EMC News - Campbellford - Something old, something new … and the Campbellford BIA Waterfront Festival Saturday, August 3, will deliver just that. With this being the 18th continuous year of the festival, the something new is the Crazy Canoe Races (crew and craft must be decorated) and the Rebels Horseshoe Throwing Contest. There are plans to have two pits and plenty of shoes ready for the event said Rose-Marie Kerr of the Campbellford BIA. The something old is, of course, the Instant cardboard boat races along with the ever-popular tube, canoe and belly flop contest. Last year the belly flop competition kept the crowd of onlookers cheering for their favourite entrant, which seemed to be Captain Awesome, who won first prize in the Intermediate category. Back again, by popular demand, is the “Rock, Paper Scissors Tournament” put on by Leslie Mahoney. The Rebels Beach Volleyball Tournament always draws a crowd and plenty of teams with players coming from as far away as Hamilton and Brampton. Campbellford teams who have battled it out in the past with Curtis Haig’s team beating out Tracey Foster’s players with a final score of 36 - 20 a couple of years ago. Kurtis Young of the Rebels executive will be there with volunteers, Rebels players among them, keeping score. Some of the Rebels’ players join the volleyball competition too. Now that the Rebels are hosting a horseshoe throwing competition the stakes are high. To pitch at the horseshoe throwing contest and for the volleyball tournament contact Terry or Kurtis at 705-653-0163. Volunteers and vendors are always wanted. In the past estimates have put the crowd at 2,000 and more. Other details can be found on the web site <>. Be part of the action, be part of the crowd and take part in this year’s Campbellford BIA Waterfront Festival.

Beekeepers sign petition to ban pesticides By Sue Dickens

EMC News - Trent Hills The buzz about bees dying just got louder. There’s now a hive of activity happening to gather signatures on a petition being circulated by the Ontario Beekeeper’s Association (OBA) to have the neonicotinoid pesticides, which it says is responsible for these losses, removed from use in Ontario. Branko Markovic is a beekeeper in Trent Hills, albeit on a small scale at the moment.

He refers to himself as, “A small sideliner with 30 hives, actually just got back to 30 after splitting and buying some bees.” He has bee yard locations at Silver Heights, Hastings, on the 8th line of Percy and Oak Heights, Warkworth. “My home yard is on Silver Heights where I own a five-acre piece of land there. I plan on building a house there before becoming a full-time beekeeper.” “I sell honey in three stores here in Toronto, and Carol

[Consell], is going to start selling it at the farmers’ market in Hastings. “Last winter was very harsh on my bees; 20 out of 30 hives didn’t survive. It was my third winter as a beekeeper, the biggest loss which I hope to never repeat again,” he told the Trent Hills Independent. “I may think of my yards as being secluded, in reality the farmland is within bee flying range,” he added. “And yes I believe that use of neonicotinoids has something to do with above the average bee losses we had province wide.” He has signed the petition. “I hope we get enough people signing, so a ban on use of neonicotinoids becomes reality, like in Europe,” he said. Commercial beekeeper Hugh Campbell, who has been in operation since 1983, said, “We lost 70 per cent of our bees last winter, that’s about 600 bees. Two years ago we lost 50 per cent.” He and his son Peter operate Campbell’s Honey House near Warkworth. When interviewed last year he said, “We have 1,200 colonies and each colony has about 100,000 bees.” The recent losses are starting to pile up and he is worried about his business. “What business can lose 30 per cent one year and 50 per cent previous years and still remain in business. It’s not going to last,” Neonicotinoids are widely used on the corn crop. Campbell said he realizes farmers don’t want to give up the insecticide. “They are afraid it’s going to hit their bottom line and they far outnumber beekeepers,” but, he said, “other farmers don’t want to lose the bees either.” Campbell noted, “There’s only a few beekeepers in Canada, in Ontario there’s

about 3,000.” “Everything needs pollination, accounting for about 30 per cent of the food we eat,” he added. According to the Ontario Beekeepers’ Association, “Ontario’s bees are dying in massive numbers due to the pervasive use of neonicotinoid pesticides on agricultural field crops. Fully a third of our food relies on pollinators: without bees, Ontario’s food supply could be in serious trouble.” Canada’s Pesticide Management Regulatory Agency has confirmed that last year’s widespread bee deaths in Ontario were caused by neonicotinoid

pesticides, it states on its web site. Campbell has also signed the online petition. “It’s time that we all did

something about it. Time that everybody got behind this.” For more information about the petition go to: <http://chn. ge/11J53Jc>.


Stercus ergo sum significant. Of course, there is a difference between composting and just letting things rot. Composting is a directed activity designed to speed up the process. Remember, we’re talking about composting in our own back yard. Here’s how to do it: collect up all of your plant materials from flower bed and gardens. Make a big pile. Add kitchen scraps. Anything is fine as long as you stay away from bits and pieces originating from the animal kingdom. The latter is not an absolute but a good practice if you want to avoid bad smells, maggots, nocturnal visitors (skunks, cats, rats, raccoons) and possible diseases. (A browse of the Internet will generate a really scary list of problems, all of which are relatively rare and can be easily avoided.) Add water and stir. The big pile, if you have enough land, can be just that. Most urban sites have

limited space and cultural sensitivities are somewhat altered from the rural environment. The pile is usually stuffed into a container: a black cube, a green cylinder, a couple of pallets lashed together, or even a stone and mortar affair guaranteed bearproof (just remit $39 through PayPal for the plans). There are lots of writings about the mix between wet and dry and the mix of green and brown bits needed to make a hot pile. Here’s the thing; we are encouraging all those organisms mentioned in paragraph four to do their part and break down our offerings as quickly as possible. They are alive, which means they need air and water. So we add water when necessary to keep the pile moist and we stir it up occasionally to add air. Folks, when you go to the Internet to check out composting please go to web sites posted by governments, universities or dedicated organisations, e.g. Canadian

Dan Clost Compost Council of Canada at <www.>. End notes: Can you compost dog poop? Three yes and one no. Yes, a hot pile, 140°Fahrenheit, is needed to kill all the pathogens. Yes, you can in a regular pile as long as you don’t use the compost on vegetable gardens. Yes, if you have a below ground composter into which you only put poop. No, are you nuts? Have you seen what dogs eat? Don’t you know about roundworms? Scoop it up and either flush it or put it in the trash.

“A solid mature product resulting from composting, which is a managed process of bio-oxidation of a solid heterogeneous organic substrate including a thermophilic phase.” Believe me, GR, this is the simple version. Dan’s interpretation: stuff that used be alive is broken down by lots of wee things like fungus, bacteria, and other little bits that are almost structurally complicated enough to be something else until it can’t be reduced anymore. Oh yes, somewhere along the line, the pile of rotting dead things is supposed to get hot. In reality, GR, it is very, very important that the boffins nail down these definitions so that commercial composting is a safe, complete process resulting in a safe, quantifiable product, especially when biosolids are now being incorporated into the mix. The sale of compost is big business and, without globally acceptable standards, the probability of bad things happening is

EMC Lifestyles - I compost, therefore I am … a gardener. Not quite what Descartes or any Latin scholar had in mind but the purpose is served: you cannot be a gardener unless you compost. Composting is a human invention. It can be a science, but it is not complicated. Humans have invented many devices and techniques to aid this natural process, they have used forests of paper to describe the process with scientific terminology and, after completion of these two endeavours, have managed to make it much more difficult to understand than it should be. Why this mini diatribe, Gentle Reader? I came across a recent article that made composting sound like something only a person with a PhD should attempt lest the resulting bollix results in a visit by the Compost Police. Here is a definition of compost from Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada:

Native American Poem for

Adam Reddom

I give you this one thought to keep, I am with you still, I do not sleep, I am a thousand winds that blow, I am the diamond glints on snow, I am the sunlight on ripened grain, I am the gentle autumn rain, When you awaken in the mornings’ hush, I am the swift, uplifting rush of quiet birds in circled flight. I am the soft stars that shine at night. Do not think of me as gone – I am with you still, in each new dawn. – author unknown – Passed away July 26, 1996 Love, Mom, Dad, Patti, Charlie, Wendy and family.
