Water Buffalo Food fest another success
This isn’t how it’s done.

Is that a real toad?

Cats need homes.
News - Stirling - Despite a little rain, dozens of people poured into the StirlingRawdon Business Improvement Association’s annual Water Buffalo Food Festival on Saturday, September 7. Meat, cheese and even ice cream made from products from the nearby Ontario Water Buffalo Company were on display. And while the event clearly celebrates
the products that come from the Buffalo farm—a unique business to the region, organizers say—it does not exclude other popular area businesses. More than ten food businesses had products on display throughout the downtown block of Mill Street, including Rustic Routes, West Wings and Jimmy’s Special Pizza. “I think people come here to get a taste
of something different and I think they go home pretty satisfied,” said Mary-Louise Belanger, a BIA member and the festival’s chairperson. She said the festival has taken place for about five years now and this year’s was like all others in that the weather didn’t cooperate. “I think it’s called the Water Buffalo Festival for a reason,” she said, standing
over a mid-afternoon cloud that was threatening to rain. However, the rain held off long enough that dozens of people ended up paying the $25 gate fee to taste products on display by the businesses. The event included musical performers and an appearance by Yvette, a 2,000-pound buffalo from the farm. She even allowed children to ride on her back. Pleasse see “Diner” page 2

Belanger said she was happy with the turnout, considering the grey weather. She explained that funds raised from the festival will go back to the BIA operations. It’s an exciting time for the group, because it plans on installing a sound system in the downtown streets to play music at special events. Members will also soon begin preparing for the Santa
Claus parade, a big annual event. Belanger said she was also pleased to hear the feedback from guests who said they enjoyed the products. When asked if she had a personal favourite, she said, “I haven’t tried anything I don’t like.” Then, after a pause, she added, “Queen of the Kitchen’s truffles are pretty darn good.”

Application submitted for funds to finance a study and two-year pilot project
By Judy Backus
News - Marmora - On the agenda of the September 3 council meeting was a presentation from Acting Chief John O’Donnell of the HastingsQuinte Emergency Medical Service (EMS). For the past
month O’Donnell, a paramedic for 36 years, has been visiting municipalities within the county to introduce himself and provide an update on the EMS system. He spoke of two levels of paramedic training, primary

and advanced, saying the goal was to have one advanced care paramedic in each of the vehicles, and to meet that target, a hiring will soon be taking place. At present there are more than 80 full-time and between 60 and 70 part-time paramedics in the service. He explained that not all services within the province are advanced care, commenting that having such personnel available is basically the equivalent of taking an emergency department on the road. As the second largest county in the province, there is a huge area to cover, and O’Donnell described in detail where the ambulances are based, how they are dispatched through Kingston and how, if the vehicles in one area are on calls, others are called in to cover. He commented that EMS personnel have been working
and other insurance providers.

on alternative plans and how the recent addition of an extra vehicle had helped the response times during the busy summer months. He referred to an application has which has been submitted to the federal government for funds to finance a study on expanding what EMS normally does and to conduct a two-year pilot project relating to circumventing emergencies. Comments and questions from council members followed, with Elaine Jones asking if a patient or family member could request which hospital the ambulance headed for. The response was that such requests could be made but that the Ambulance Act was very specific and attendants were required to head to the closest and most appropriate hospital, the decision being made by the paramedics.

Coffee. As a person working daily with restoring vehicles, he says the service complements his business. “It’s nice to have a detail cleaning service like this in the village, and she does a good job.” Gardener Stevenson is a repeat customer. He claims, “When finished, my vehicle looks factory new!” Keller said she has been quite busy over the summer and feels confident with her work. “We are ready to announce our business to the public.”
Carolyn Logan of Amazing Coffee is supporting the new business by offering a free regular coffee for customers who get a wash and vacuum at Auto Clenz, and Keller is running a draw for a free wash and wax to anyone who brings their vehicle in for any type of service before the end of September. Auto Clenz is open Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturdays by appointment only. You can stop by the shop or call Sue Keller at 613-4732966.
Business - Madoc - Sue Keller has taken over the auto cleaning business just a few feet from where she was raised on Prince Albert and Madawaska Streets in Madoc. Her parents, Gerry and Bev Keller, had the house on the corner, which later became the Hidden Gold Mine Bakery. Her grandmother’s house is across the street where she now lives with her three sons. When the business, formerly known as Auto Smart, became available, she thought it was a good opportunity to establish her roots once again and give her boys a sense of the work ethic. The new name, Auto Clenz, gives a hint of the detailed work she and her boys can do on your vehicle, including cleaning the engine of grease and grime. “Some vehicles take five hours depending on how bad they are.” She noted, “When people are busy, they just can’t get to detailed cleaning.” On average it takes four hours to do a vehicle inside and out. She admits she uses a lot of cotton swabs to get into fine places. Cleaning the engine is an option of the service which her eldest son, Dawson, likes to do. He is taking transportation technology at Centre Hastings Secondary School with auto mechanics as part of the course. He says he likes to work on the vehicles and especially takes pride in cleaning up an engine. As a single mother, Sue recognizes the importance of guiding and directing her boys to be productive young men. “I don’t expect the younger ones to do much. They help out when they can, school is more important, but, we all work together.” The boys also spend free time honing their skills at the skate park, where Dawson took first place in his skateboarding division at the competitions this summer. The shop is part of the complex owned by Eric Rafiq, who purchased the building at the corner of Prince Albert and Russell Streets about three years ago. He operates the North Country Collision and Repair and leases the front space to Amazing

TAKE NOTICE that the Municipality of Tweed Planning Advisory Committee will hold a Public Meeting on Monday, October 7, 2013 at 4:30 p.m. in the Council Chambers at 255 Metcalf Street, Tweed to consider a proposed zoning by-law amendment under Section 34 of the Planning Act for an application numbered as ZA6/13. The lands will be made subject to site plan control pursuant to Section 41 of the Planning Act. The application proposes to amend the Municipality of Tweed Comprehensive Zoning By-Law No. 2012-30. The proposed zoning by-law amendments will change the zoning for the lands described as Part of Lot 11, Concession 5, Township of Hungerford now the Municipality of Tweed, which property fronts on Old Hungerford Road. In the Municipality of Tweed Comprehensive Zoning By-Law No. 2012-30 the lands will be rezoned from the Rural (RU) Zone to the Special Rural Holding (RU-9-h) Zone. The purpose of the application is to rezone a portion of the subject lands from the Rural (RU) Zone to the Special Rural holding (RU-9-h) Zone to facilitate the construction of a motocross track and accessory uses for limited motocross racing events. The effect of the application will be to add to the permitted uses in the Rural (RU) Zone. The Special Rural (RU-9) Zone will allow a motocross track and some accessory uses, including overnight camping (for participants only), a canteen and vendors. The Special Rural holding (RU-9-h) Zone will also include a number of site specific requirements, including but not limited to a 100 m buffer between the motocross track and the property lines, which must retain all existing vegetation. The holding provisions would not be removed until such time as the owners provide a site plan and/or agreement to the satisfaction of the Municipality. Additional information and material, including mapping, relating to the application for the proposed zoning by-law amendment is available for inspection by any member of the public during regular business hours at the municipal office, 255 Metcalf Street, Tweed. ANY PERSON may attend the Public Meeting and/or make written or verbal representation either in support of or in opposition to the proposed zoning by-law amendment. If a person or public body does not make oral submissions at the Public Meeting, or make written submissions to the Municipality of Tweed, before the by-law is passed, the person or public body is not entitled to appeal the decision of the Council of the Municipality of Tweed to the Ontario Municipal Board. If a person or public body does not make oral submissions at the Public Meeting, or make written submissions to the Municipality of Tweed, before the by-law is passed, the person or public body may not be added as a party to the hearing of an appeal before the OMB unless in the opinion of the Board there are reasonable grounds to do so.

Asked if the Salvation Army Store has more than they need Jay said, â€œNo, we are always looking for clothing, the biggest issue is things dropped off after hours; one of the problems with after-hours dropoffs is that people come along and dig into the bags to see if there is anything there for them and then they leave the clothes scattered around for us to clean up. Also, the majority of stuff being dropped off is people just trying to get rid of their garbage. Yesterday I put up
new signs again letting people know what we do not accept at this location and after the signs went up, some one dropped off furniture which we do not take. Now I have to dispose of that as well.â€? Jay said the store hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. week days and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays and that is the time to bring items in, when the store is open. He said the store does not accept books, dishes, furniture or childrenâ€™s toys; basically the Tweed store is a clothing store. Asked about the coming holiday season Jay said the Salvation Army is looking for kettle volunteers. â€œIn terms of hamper
we welcome anyone who has excess in their garden to bring it in, people have been very good to us here at the store. When we do not give the food to our food bank recipients, we hand it out to customers that shop in the store.â€? Jay said those in need of the food bank simply come into the store and all they need is I.D. for everyone in their household, an income statement and a rent receipt; the rent receipt just conďŹ rms they live in the area. The food bank is open Wednesdays. Jay said the store is also in need of volunteers; they need a cashier for Friday and Monday afternoons as well as sorters. â€œWe are still transitioning from summer holidays so we will know better what we need for volunteers in a few weeks.â€?

Celebrations are planned for the arena’s 65th By Judy Backus
News - Marmora - In comments made in the early minutes of the September 3 council meeting, Reeve Terry Clemens reported on a recent trip to Ottawa to attend the Association of Municipalities of Ontario convention, saying he had some positive meetings with the Ministry of Environment relating to the Marmora Pumped Storage project. He mentioned coming away with a good feeling and a promise of more meetings with high level departments in the energy field. He also referred to a call back from the Minister of Economic Development with regards to the project and what it
could mean for Marmora and Lake. Deputy-reeve Rita Cimprich, who had attended the opening ceremonies of the Marmora Fair on behalf of council, thanked the fair board members and the many volunteers for their hard work and for a job well done. She mentioned having presented a special award to outgoing fair board President Kent Knox for his outstanding and long-term involvement. The meeting moved on with a report from CAO Ron Chittick relating to a significant number of upgrades needed for an apartment located in the Memorial Building. He recommended, and after
discussing the matter, council approved, that KM Construction be hired to do the extensive work at a cost of $36,500 plus HST, with the funds to be taken from the Facilities Upgrade Reserve. Once the work is completed, at the end of March, it is hoped the apartment, which has been empty for some time, and is currently in bad repair, will be rented. It was pointed out that the apartment would be an ideal one for seniors as it is centrally located and there is an existing lift in the building. Manager of Parks and Recreation Curtis Trimble announced an upcoming event, that being an October 19
celebration of the 65th anniversary of the municipality’s first covered arena, the Dr. Hamilton Crawford Memorial Arena. The event will include a pancake breakfast put on by members of the Pentecostal Church, ongoing minor hockey between 10 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., recognition of former Leafs player Greg Terrion featuring a very large photo of him wearing his team jersey, and the presence of former Lakers players. Trimble said he would welcome input from the public relating to the celebration. Councillor Elaine Jones mentioned an upcoming Minor Hockey tournament
on September 28, saying that the local Youth Committee would be preparing a pancake breakfast to help defray the costs of the tournament and to display information regarding the coming splash pad. One of the final pieces of business for the afternoon related to a request from residents on Cook’s Road for the municipality to take over its maintenance. It was pointed out by Reeve Clemens that the matter, which has come before council in the past, would be referred to the CAO, but would take some time, involve meetings, discussion and legal input.
Beer Store raises funds for Rogers House By Scott Pettigrew
News - Tweed - Once again the Tweed Beer store has stepped up and taken part in fund raising for Rogers House. Patti Marlin was the principal organizer of the event and had a raffle, 50/50 draw, baked goods and a barbecue as well as raising funds from people dropping off empties. “A lot of the items we have in our
raffle are promotional items that the Beer Store was able to donate, said Patti, “All of our baked goods were created by staff at the store and Palmateer’s donated all of the food for our barbecue. The Kiwanis Club of Tweed also donated $500 again this year.” Asked to remind people what Rogers House is all about Patti said, “Rogers House is a palliative care/respite home
away from home for children and their families. It is on the grounds of CHEO in Ottawa and serves eastern Ontario. Well-known hockey coach Roger Neilson was the founder of this charity. Anyone from the area can access this facility and it is an awesome place for terminally ill children’s families to go and be together.” Patti went on to explain that this

Testimony has also focussed on Oliver being critical of previous board members’ decisions. Oliver’s attorney, Patrick Hurley, said he had put forward a “notice of a constitutional question” to the Attorney General, but has not yet gotten a response, thus the delay in the proceedings. The hearing may seem like a court case, as it contains a defence and prosecution team, but it’s not investigating any criminal wrongdoing. Rather, it’s investigating whether Oliver breached a code of

conduct for members of police services boards. Oliver became chair of the Stirling-Rawdon Police Services board in May 2011, but has been under suspension for the length of the hearing, which has unfolded over several months. Hurley said he expects the matter to come to an end soon. The September 25 meeting, he said, “is scheduled to be the final day of arguments. I don’t expect it to continue longer.” After both sides present their final arguments, two adjudicators will be in charge of making a ruling. “I hope it’s found that [Oliver] didn’t breach the code of conduct,” Hurley said. “He wants to resume his role on the police board.”

An Ontario Police Civilian Commission hearing looking into whether Greg Oliver acted inappropriately was originally scheduled to wrap up at a Travelodge Hotel conference room last week. However, the final day of arguments was pushed back about three weeks, as lawyers wait for a ruling from Ontario’s Attorney General on whether Oliver’s actions are protected under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. The Commission is investigating whether Oliver acted inappropriately when discussing a new contract with Stirling-Rawdon Police

The plan is to raise a large sum of money and begin an extensive renovation, as opposed to taking on small projects one at a time. â€œItâ€™s a dated building and it needs to be brought into the 21st century,â€? Graff said, with a bit of a laugh. She hopes Stirling and area residents will get behind the project because a strong and vibrant Legion can only mean good things for the community.

If someone had aced the par-three sixth hole at The Glenn golf course, a golfer would have had a choice of one of two cars on display.

OPINION Syria: An Unexpected Rabbit Editorial - When someone pulls a rabbit out of a hat, it’s natural to be suspicious. Magicians are professionals in deceit—and so are diplomats. But sometimes the rabbit is real. On Monday morning, the world was heading into the biggest crisis in years: a looming American attack on Syria, a Russian response that could set off the first major confrontation between Washington and Moscow since the Cold War, and the possible spread of the fighting from Syria to neighbouring countries. Or alternatively, a Congressional rejection of President Barack Obama’s plans that would have left him a lame duck for the next three years. By Tuesday morning all that had changed. A Russian proposal for Syria to get rid of all its chemical weapons was promptly accepted by the Syrian foreign minister, Walid alMoallem, and the Senate vote on Obama’s planned strikes on Syria was postponed, probably for weeks. If Syria keeps its word, the vote may never be held. What a difference a day makes. Now for the cavils. Nothing has been signed. Nothing has even been written up for signature. Maybe Syria is just playing for time. Perhaps Obama will want to pursue the Syrian regime legally for the poison gas attacks that he claims it has already carried out (though he sounded very relieved on hearing the news and didn’t mention any “red lines”). The sequence of events, so far as can be made out, was as follows. At the Moscow G20 summit last week, Obama and Russian president Vladimir Putin had a one-to-one chat on the side at which one of them broached the possibility of persuading Syria to give up its chemical weapons entirely. Which one isn’t clear, and the idea was not pursued by either of them. Yet both men had reason to want such a thing, for the alternative was that Obama would lead the United States into another Middle Eastern war, not exactly what he was elected for—or that he would not get Congressional approval to do so and end up completely discredited. Putin would feel obliged to respond to a U.S. attack on his Syrian ally, but that could end up with Russian missiles shooting down American planes. There was then silence until Monday, when John Kerry, the U.S. Secretary of State, gave an off-the-cuff reply in London to a question about whether Syria’s President Bashar alAssad could avoid an American attack. “Sure. He could turn
over every bit of his [chemical] weapons to the international community within the next week, without delay,” said Kerry with a shrug. “But he isn’t about to.” Then Kerry got on a plane to fly home, and halfway across the Atlantic he got a call from the Russian foreign minister, Sergei Lavrov, saying that he was about to announce that Russia would ask Syria to put all its chemical weapons storage facilities under international control, join the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, and finally destroy them all. The Syrian foreign minister happened to be in Moscow, so within an hour he declared that Assad’s regime “welcomes Russia’s initiative, based on the Syrian government’s care about the lives of our people and security of our country.” By Monday evening Obama was saying that the Russian plan “could potentially be a significant breakthrough,” and the pot was off the boil. The whole thing, therefore, was made up on the fly. That doesn’t necessarily mean that it won’t work, but it is a proposal that comes without any of the usual preparation that precedes a major diplomatic initiative. The reason we don’t know the details is that there aren’t any. What we do know is that everybody—Obama, Putin and Assad—is clearly desperate to avoid going to war, and that gives us reason to hope. Two things that have to happen fast, if this rabbit is really going to run. First, Syria has to sign the Chemical Weapons Convention and ratify the Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention right away. That could be done within a week, and it would legally commit it to getting rid of all its chemical weapons and the factories that make them. Second, the United Nations Security Council has to pass a resolution demanding that Syria reveal the size and location of its entire stock of chemical weapons and place them under international control. France has already put such a resolution on the Security Council’s agenda; the test will be whether Russia vetoes it. It probably won’t. There is a great deal of suspicion in Washington that this is merely a delaying tactic meant to stall an American attack and sap the already weak popular support in the United States for military action. Moreover, it will be hard to send international troops in to secure Syria’s chemical weapons (at least forty storage sites, plus some weapons in the hands of military units) unless there is a ceasefire in the civil war now raging all over the country. But the American military will be pleased, because they were really unhappy about the job that Obama was giving them, and Obama himself looks like a man who has been granted a new lease of life. There will be time to try to make this work.
LETTER TO THE EDITOR
Is this really progress? Dear Editor, A military obstacle called a cheveaux-de-frise found use in the late Middle Ages as a defence against cavalry charges. Imagine a large, long log studded with spears, sword blades and metal bric-a-brac projecting in all directions and then regard the new phenomenon or real-estate signs that have recently been sprouting up on the corners of our rural roads. Not so long ago there were laws against the disfiguring of roadways and public land and to this day, these laws are upheld north of Bancroft and Northbrook where the countryside still looks like, well, country, and not some crummy, ill-disciplined shopping mall. Formerly such signs were thought to be invasive and distracting by a generation of better planners than now exist,

hence our dismay that the still attractive Municipality of Trent Mills “is currently reviewing its sign by-law” under pressure from “the people who sell real estate.” (Trent Hills Independent, August 25, 2013) Can this new generation of home buyers not read maps, even with GPS? Oh dear, here we go again, dumb and backwards. But if we’re going to deface the countryside, let’s do it right. Add surveillance devices to the signs so they encode the potential house buyer in passing. Then, when they overshoot on the point of sale, an alarm will go off, thus permitting the Realtors of Ontario to abuse both the landscape and the soundscape simultaneously. That’s progress!

Frosh week chant digs deep beneath the gutter By Bill Freeman Editorial - As far as scandals go it’s not Penn State in size nor in horror but St. Mary’s University on the east coast and the University of British Columbia on the west are on the serving end of some of the worst publicity imaginable after frosh week sex chants that suggested raping underage girls was a thing Huskie and Thunderbird guys should aspire to. Only they used the phrase “nonconsenting” in their deplorable chant because they needed something to denote the “N” in the word “YOUNG” that was part of their disgraceful boozed-up rapping. At St. Mary’s it was frosh from across campus while at UBC it was during Commerce Undergraduate Society frosh events. Higher education? More like a celebration of lower education by frosh week organizers, upper year students all, who cling to a sense of entitlement because no one has come after them until this year when social media caught them dead to rights jacked up on waves of rampaging stupidity. The reaction to events at both schools—the chants were almost identical riffing on the letters in the word YOUNG—has been swift and condemnatory but it remains to be seen if the penalties will be adequately severe. At St. Mary’s student president Jared Penny and his female vice president Carrigan Desjardins both resigned although Penny in a flight of brazen obtuseness says he will run again. We can only imagine the humiliation Desjardins must feel as a woman in charge of organizing the frosh week events and approving mass chanting by lager-headed 17- and 18-year-olds about non-consenting sex (that would be rape) with underage girls. The bigger question is why so many of these privileged teens, happy to be attending one of Canada’s better small universities, would arrive on campus and then quickly fall in with the herd in demonstrations of criminal thinking. Future leaders comfortable enough with public chants about sexually assaulting underage girls; comfortable to the point of fearing no punishment or sanction from the university generally or specifically. At St. Mary’s the chant has apparently been part of frosh week events since 2009 yet it took until 2013 for the university’s governing body, including president Colin Dodds, to become aware of the outrageous Advertising Consultant Jennet Honey firstname.lastname@example.org 613-966-2034, ext 509
antics. So far the only chastisement faced by the frosh week leaders is that they must attend a sensitivity training course; the executive has been ordered to participate in a session on sexual violence and consent. St. Mary’s has called it a teachable moment. We think it’s a little bit more than a teachable moment. Just as bellowing racist and anti-Semitic epithets in front of a synagogue is more than a teachable moment. Observers are absolutely right when they say that an event like this, and its sheer carefreeness, reinforces rape culture which remains a depressingly persistent presence in our society. First-year university students arrive on campus fresh out of high school and feel that publicly condoning sexual assault is an appropriate and fun thing to do—with no shame, no moral self-reflection and no apparent consciousness of right or wrong. Shallow personalities swimming upstream with all the mindlessness they can muster. Says the heroically blunderheaded, and now former student president Jared Perry: “This is a huge learning experience for myself, my executive team and all the orientation week leaders. Hopefully we’ll be able to implement some sustainable practices that will help tackle this.” Sustainable practices? That sounds more like a federal senator trying to rationalize the overexpensing of refreshments and a second residence. A second-year psychology female student quoted by the CBC said: “It wasn’t a big deal to me. I’m not a feminist kind of person. It didn’t affect me personally.” A psychology student maybe but not much of an intellect or one with an ounce of understanding about the magnitude of the offence caused by the YOUNG frosh choir. Sadly, this is not just a St. Mary’s problem; the event and the fallout certainly is but the current that gives life to social atrocities like this runs much deeper than one campus or one place. We should never ever lose sight of the fact that 60 per cent of all sexual assault-abuse victims are under the age of 17 or that of every 100 incidents of sexual assaults only six are reported to the police and that in Canada there are 1,397 sexual assaults every day. The chant is very much more than a “teachable moment.” Distribution Kathy Labelle email@example.com 613-966-2034, ext 512 Production Manager Glenda Pressick firstname.lastname@example.org 613-966-2034, ext 520 Read us online at www.InsideBelleville.com

Better weather for Moira Place Carnival By Scott Pettigrew
News - Tweed - If anyone remembers last year’s annual carnival at Moira Place and the cool and wet weather that came that day, then they could appreciate the nice day Friday, September 6, as the sun was shining and the day was perfect. This is the fourth year for the Moira Place carnival; they put on the event to celebrate their anniversary.
Tracey McKichan, director of residential and family services, said, “We get a lot of repeat customers every year, people from the community who bring their kids, so we try to switch up the games so that there is something interesting and new. This year we have introduced loot bags for the kids. Last year the children went around from game to game and got prizes but they

ended with their hands so full of stuff that they didn’t know what to do with it all. The loot bags are full of surprises for the kids and everyone loves a surprise. We have new entertainment this year with Hal Allison from Cobourg; the residents really enjoy Hal. Our signature for the carnival though is our pies and a lot people come for the pie. We have 13 varieties of homemade pies, apple, cherry, pumpkin, peach and blueberry just to name a few and it usually gets all gets eaten.” Tracey said the pies are made at Moira Place by the dietary staff and in all there are 62 pies. She also mentioned the fireworks display. “Sean Porter, [maintenance manager] along with the Tweed Volunteer Firefighters, started putting on a fireworks display last year and it was Siobhan Cassidy enjoyed almost all of the games at this year’s Moira Place annual carnival. She is such a big hit we decided to being assisted by volunteer Barry Cooper.

“The event is organized by our life enrichment department but the event could not take place without the support of our volunteers and there is a volunteer as well as staff at every table.” Tracey said that next year will be the fifth anniversary of Moira Place and there are plans already being made to make that celebration the biggest carnival yet. Tracey wanted to remind people that the annual craft bazaar is coming up November 9 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and said they usually have a tea room; the event is open to the public. All of the crafts and baked goods are made by the residents at Moira Place. “Come and have some cake and tea and browse through the crafts. The money raised goes directly back to the residents for programming, whether it is entertainment or bused outings or something that they wish to purchase. The money goes to the Residents Council so they get to decide what they want to do with it.”

Councillor Sandy Fraser who lives in the area, was asked to work with Manager of Transportation Services Ron Derry, then bring back a report to council. While on the topic of transportation, on a suggestion made by Elaine Jones, council members agreed to review the community safety zone which extends from North Maloney to the bridge on Highway #7. A concern was mentioned by Staff Sergeant Peter Valiquette at a recent community policing meeting that the sign indicates a 24hour posting, his suggestion being that since people are not generally crossing the highway during the night, that the hours might be altered.

Lioness Carmie Gregory remembered with a tree By Kate Everson
News - Trenton - Lioness Carmie Gregory will be remembered with a beautiful red maple overlooking the Trenton amphitheatre and Trent River. “She loved coming here to the Classic Country Music Reunion,” said her husband Adrian. “Here she can watch over the music and the river.” Carmie died of lung cancer last June. President Maureen Sills said she was “a real go-getter.” “She was very active,” Sills said. “This is a lifetime memory of her.” Maureen said Carmie was “a joy to work with” and thanked the family for coming to the dedication. “This is a perfect spot,” she said.
Mayor John Williams added the tree will be there for a long time and it is a great way to remember someone. Public Works director Chris Angelo said several people have donated benches and trees in honour of loved ones in many of the parks. “It’s a simple process,” he said. Angelo said they encourage planting on the mound overlooking the amphitheatre because it cuts the wind and sun for spectators at concerts throughout the summer. He noted that Councillor Bob Wannamaker is promoting building a shelter for inclement days. Parks and Open Space supervisor Ryan Andrew said the parks staff will look after the tree.

Finance committee looks for cheaper insurance rates News - Quinte West - The members of the Corporate and Financial Services Committee want the city to hunt for cheaper insurance rates for 2014. “Staff proposes that the city go out to market for its 2014-2015 municipal insurance program coverage,” said city clerk DonnaLee Craig. The process will begin in the spring of next year to allow sufficient time to have a thorough analysis done. Meghan Callaghan, client services representative from BFL Canada told the committee that insurance rates will increase this year by 14.6 per cent, a cost of $62,902 from October 1, 2013, to October 1, 2014, for a total cost of $493,624 a year. She explained that insurance rates
have increased across the province particularly because of the volume and settlements of third-party liability claims. Some municipalities have seen their insurance rates soar from 15 to 50 per cent. DonnaLee Craig noted that staff looked at 25 municipalities and of those 14 have had increases of 20 per cent or more since 2011. The city has not had an increase in its liability coverage since 2011. The BFL Canada municipal insurance program covers the city of Quinte West, the public library and the Quinte West police services board. Callaghan gave examples of two cases where liability claims went through the roof in other municipalities. The Deering Sisters
claim involved two sisters driving on a rural road at dusk. They had an accident which left them with catastrophic spinal injuries. The driver was liable but the municipality was also held liable for its road which was deemed excessively narrow with poor lighting and no centre line. The Ontario Court of Appeals awarded the Deering Sisters $30 million. “That’s a very large number,” Callaghan said. “The decision for the rural road really raises the bar for maintenance on rural roads.” The second case was two men drinking on a rural road and driving through an intersection and hitting a curve uphill. There was an accident causing severe brain injury. The municipality was deemed liable for
50 per cent of the $5.5 million claim because there was no checkered sign indicting a slight rise in the road. “That’s another very large settlement,” Callaghan said. “The circumstances of the claim are worrying. Insurance companies are aware of the claims and have raised their rates up to 50 per cent.” Callaghan said BFL is not an insurance company but a broker that finds them the best deal. They checked with three different insurance companies to get competitive quotes for Quinte West. “We do feel confident in what we’re doing,” she said. Jim Alyea commented, “This is scary stuff.” Paul Kyte noted, “I have never

“We just get a list and divide it up,” Liz said. “It takes about two months to finish it. We visit everybody, often twice.” Tanya said Trenton has raised $443,000 to date since 1983. Last year the community and schools raised $34,000 and had about 150 participants. “We hope to increase that this year,” she said. Kawartha Credit Union also contributed $689 from a barbecue held during the downtown Festival on the Bay, and hope to hold the event again next year. The Terry Fox Run is held every year all over the world since 1980 in honour of the young man with cancer that tried to run across Canada. Funds raised go to research to find a cure. See <www. terryfox.org> for more information. Pledge sheets can be picked up at city hall, the YMCA, Tri & Run, Kawartha Credit Union, the Chamber of Commerce and Payday Plus in Trenton. The event will be held rain or shine.

“There is no minimum donation,” said Tanya deWitt, who has organized the event in Trenton for the past eight years. She said participants can do the ten-, five-, two- or 1.5-kilometre route starting from the Rowing Club at 10 a.m. Or they can choose to row between the two bridges with members of the club. “The event starts at 10 a.m. sharp,” she notes. “The registration starts at 9 a.m.” This is different from other years, which had the run start at 9 a.m. Also on site will be face painting, a barbecue put on by the Station #1 firefighters, and a new paintball booth to try out. “We also have our new T-shirts,” said Tanya.

heard of an insurance company losing money.” Don Kuntze asked how often the insurance company comes to the municipality for risk management talks. Callaghan said every municipality is different. DonnaLee Craig noted the city does discuss things with them on a regular basis. Keith Reid asked if they get a better rate since all their rural roads are now covered with tar and chip. Callaghan said it does not make any difference at this point. Mayor John Williams commented, “Everybody likes to sue the city. It’s common practice.” Craig said the city has about 35 claims a year and there has been a slight increase in lawsuits.

Prairie Day celebrates “amazing restoration site” By Bill Freeman
News - Alderville First Nation - Prairie Day at the Alderville First Nation’s Black Oak Savanna is both a celebration and an opportunity to teach visitors about the extraordinary and unique restoration project that’s striving diligently to returning native species to the land. “Tallgrass prairies are more endangered than rain forests and yet it’s right here in our back yard,” says Janine McLeod, nature educator and outreach co-ordinator for the Alderville Black Oak SavannaTallgrass Prairie. McLeod helped co-ordinate Prairie Day and its program of events that included entertainment, storytelling, nature workshops, crafts and guided tours along trails that wend their way through the burgeoning savanna. The day was sponsored by Alderville First Nation and the Nature Conservancy of Canada and brought together partners that have been instrumental in abetting the restoration project’s remarkable success. “It’s nice to do something that brings people out here to this amazing site to have a look at what we’re doing,” McLeod says. “It’s not something people even know exists in North America.” It’s one of the rarest ecological habitats in North America and the project, started in 2002, provides a glimpse of what the 100,000-acre Rice Lake Plains looked like centuries ago. The 50-hectare site is the largest remnant tallgrass prairie in central Ontario and home to rare plants, grasses and threatened and endangered birds and insects. “Everything is connected to nature somehow and connected to this site,” McLeod said as she looked around at the various display tents.
“We’re celebrating by bringing together all the various partners who are involved in things like this throughout the year.” That included the Nature Conservancy, Ontario Parks, the Ganaraska Region Conservation Authority and the Lower Trent Conservation Authority. First Nations storytellers Aaron Bell and Melody Crowe performed along with award winning musician Ken Whiteley and the Paddling Puppeteers. The restoration project receives funding from the federal government’s Aboriginal Fund for Species at Risk and the Ontario government’s Species at Risk fund. McLeod says recent funding has allowed them to plant seeds into plugs which has “knocked five years off the restoration” goal. “It’s nice to be able to escalate it like that.” “Walking through this site is very special; there is almost something spiritual about the site,” McLeod says. “Walking through here you instantly feel your blood pressure and heart rate drop and you just start focusing on the other and bigger picture and forget all your little worries. “We learn something new every single time we walk through here. I’ve been working here seven years and every time I walk through something new will reveal itself.” Too many people, she says, have “lost that connection to nature. “They don’t see trees, they don’t get out and feel the wind on their face and sun on their body, even the rain spitting into your face; it’s a wonderful rejuvenating feeling. It helps eyesight, to be able to look far and be able to focus near, far and very far.” Please turn to page B2 for more photos

News - Castleton - â€œReal soap cannot be made without lye.â€? But itâ€™s not the same soap many might remember their grandmothers making, which tended to have too much lye and irritated the skin, says Nancy Gagne, who has been making soap for the past 15 years at her farmhouse studio north of Castleton. Originally a veterinary technician, Gagne became interested in natural products after starting a family. She developed a particular interest in handmade soaps because one of her three sons â€œhad a lot of environmental allergiesâ€? and she didnâ€™t want to expose her children to â€œtoxinsâ€? such as petroleum products and synthetic fragrances and colours that are found in mass-produced cleansers. â€œIt actually became a creative passion and an outlet I initially didnâ€™t anticipate,â€? said Gagne, whose Northumberland Soap works on County Road 25 was one of 34 sites that were part of the 18th annual Northumberland Hills Studio Tour last weekend. â€œI played around with a lot of recipes to come up with what I was really happy with,â€? she said. She produces close to 50 varieties, using a blend of olive, coconut, palm and castor oils, along with moisturizing ingredients such as shea butter, cocoa butter and oatmeal. Gagne employs the old-fashioned cold process method to make her soap, in a pot on a stove in her kitchen. Mixing fat or oils with lye causes a chemical reaction, saponification,
which is great for laundry soap, not so much for washing your skin.â€? Gagne makes a variety of scented soaps, lavender being the most popular, as well as a few that are unscented, made from beeswax and honey, calendula, goatâ€™s milk and shea butter, and oats and wheat germ. Some are made for their â€œhealing properties ... based on old herbal principles,â€? but she also makes â€œa lot that are just for fun,â€? she said. The handmade natural bars, which weigh about 95 grams, are high in glycerin, which â€œdraws moisture from the air to your skin â€Ś whereas commercial soap usually has the glycerin removed because itâ€™s a valuable byproductâ€? that can be sold for other uses, Gagne said. â€œMost people right away will come to me and say that since they switched from a commercial body bar to natural soap, they stopped being itchy [and] their skin feels so much better.â€? Many of her ingredients she grows herself, such as calendula and lavender, or purchases from local sources. Gagne sells her pure, handmade soaps at the Cobourg Farmersâ€™ Market Saturday mornings and at her farmgate shop from May to December (but you must call ahead to ensure someone will be there to provide service). The number is 877Nancy Gagneâ€™s Northumberland Soapworks north of Castleton, was one of 577-8274.

Farmtown Park celebrates Grandparents Day By Stephen Petrick
Day. Holding her three-year-old News - Stirling - Marilyn Akins was among the local residents who came grandson, Caleb Spencer, by a replica out to Farmtown Park on Sunday, Sep- of Mater, the rusty tow truck from tember 8, to celebrate Grandparents Pixar animation series, Cars, she said
she couldn’t ask for a better event. “It’s wonderful,” she said, underneath the beautiful fall afternoon sky. “It’s great for the kids. We like the tow truck and we like the train.”

Organizers of the annual event at the well-known Stirling museum hoped for this kind of response. Farmtown Park, previously known as the Hastings County Museum of Agricultural Heritage, has held Grandparents Day celebrations for about ﬁve years. The event allows children to learn about the history of agriculture with help from an older generation. “It’s a family day,” said Farmtown Park volunteer Harry Danford, a key organizer for Sunday’s event. “It’s not a fund raiser, it’s just a day to be with the whole family and hopefully there’s something here that interests everyone.” The day included a handmade apple cider demonstration, a performance
from the Stirling Citizens Band and an opportunity to explore the museum’s exhibits, including its 1950s-style replica village. Dozens also ﬂocked to the park’s steam engine room at 2 p.m. to watch volunteers light its famous 80-year-old Fairbanks-Morse diesel engine. Danford said he was pleased to see a good crowd in attendance, including several grandparents who could help their grandchildren understand the artefacts on display. “They may see something from the past,” he said, explaining that many of vehicles, engines and other displays are from the 1940s and 50s. “It represents what this county and been through over the decades.”

Kidney walk surpasses fund-raising goal By Steve Jessel
News - Belleville - Organizers of the 2013 Belleville kidney walk are calling the event a success after surpassing their fund-raising goal, but with the 50th anniversary of the Kidney Foundation of Canada coming up next year, participants can be assured that 2014 will be even bigger. â€œWe have big plans for next year,â€? said Ann Labrash, development assistant with the Kingston chapter of the Kidney Foundation. â€œDeďŹ nitely make this bigger and better.â€? Roughly 30 walkers and their families gathered at Zwicks Park in Belleville on Sunday morning, a positive turnout for an event that Labrash said has struggled with attendance in the past. In fact, the event was cancelled in 2012 owing to a lack of interest after running the previous two years, but Labrash said sheâ€™s hopeful the walk can someday reach the proďŹ le of the Kingston kidney walk, which has already raised $10,000 ahead of their annual outing later this month. â€œThis year has been phenomenal for really starting up again,â€? Labrash said. â€œMost of these people out here are dialysis patients and their families â€Ś some can walk 50 steps and some of them can walk 50 kilometres.â€? The goal of the Kidney Foundation, and in turn of the walk was to help eradicate and prevent kidney disease of all kinds. Labrash said today one in ten people are in danger of developing kidney disease, a rate that has more than tripled over the last 20 years. The major risk factors associated with kidney disease are nutrition, lifestyle and exercise, meaning a walk ďŹ ts in
very nicely with promoting healthy participants. Labrash added that the walk is also meant to replace an annual foundation March door-todoor canvassing effort, as canvassing has been in decline for a number for years. â€œDoor-to-door canvassing is dying out, people donâ€™t want to give at the door,â€? Labrash said. â€œSo the consensus was to start the walks and gradually build them up to replace the March campaign.â€? Belleville doesnâ€™t have its own branch of the Kidney Foundation; the event is run by the Kingston chapter, which is responsible for the area from Picton to Perth. Some 40 chapters of the Kidney Foundation run walks each year, all contributing toward an $850,000 provincial goal. The Belleville event raised $3,044 this year, surpassing their $3,000 goal, funds that will be used to help pay for research and patient services. â€œThese events are extremely important, not only to raise money but to get the word about kidney disease out,â€? Labrash said. â€œTo me raising awareness is at least on par with raising money â€Ś each person thatâ€™s on dialysis costs the province $60,000 a year. Multiply that by 90 in Belleville alone, and the costs are Some 30 walkers attended the annual kidney walk at Zwicks Park in Belleville Sunday morning, raising over $3,000.

Township looks for recognition award nominations By Bill Freeman
News - Havelock - Itâ€™s that time of year again and the Township of Havelock-Belmont-Methuen is looking for nominees for its annual community recognition awards. Township council has approved a request to advertise for nominees. The deadline for nominations has been set at October 31. A special meeting of coun-
cil will be called to review the submissions. The award ceremony is tentatively scheduled for November 28 at the Lions Community Hall. â€œI think it went well last year,â€? Deputy-clerk/Economic Development OfďŹ cer Brian Grattan told council. Last year was the ďŹ rst time the municipality hosted a stand-alone evening
for award recipients; previously the prestigious awards were presented as part of a regular council meeting. The November 28 gathering will be deemed a special meeting of council but will be held exclusively to celebrate the recipients and their contributions to the municipality. Mayor Ron Gerow expressed the feelings of council when he said they didnâ€™t
â€œhave to take away from the agendaâ€? of a regular meeting to present the awards. It was a night to highlight the good things individuals and groups do for and in Havelock-Belmont-Methuen, he said. More information on the nomination process will be available through the municipal ofďŹ ce as well as the townshipâ€™s web site.
