Public gets first look at new Stirling school By Richard Turtle

News - Stirling - The doors of the Stirling Public School were opened to the community for the first time last week and hundreds of families, neighbours and friends took advantage of the opportunity. Principal Suzanne Cholasta noted that while there is still some unpacking left to do and the official opening remains weeks away, with the school now in use it was a perfect opportunity to show off the facility before the formalities. “It’s really just an open house,” she noted. “That’s all.” And the curiosity was clearly evident in the steady flow of traffic through the main doors that began shortly after the school day ended on Thursday. “There’s just so much excitement,” she added. “We’re just so pleased with how many people showed up,” says school board Communications Officer Kerry Donnell, who was among the many volunteers selling school T-shirts, welcoming visitors and providing a little guidance. “I just can’t believe this.” Also on hand during the busy open house was Hastings Prince Edward District School Board Director of Education Mandy SaveryWhiteway. Brittney Baarda, Robyn Sills and Raylind Pierce were among the students excited to show off their new school, providing greetings and directions for many of the visitors when they arrived. And the trio agreed that the new environment is a huge improvement for Stirling students. Volunteers from Stirling-Rawdon Police and Fire Departments were also on hand preparing the hamburgers and hot dogs available to the long lineup of hungry visitors who had completed their tour of the two-storey building Please see “New Stirling school” on page 4

Community Futures opens office in Madoc

By Diane Sherman

News - Madoc - The federally funded Community Futures Development Corporation of North and Central Hastings and South Algonquin has expanded to a satellite office at the Madoc Public Library. Leigh Anne Lavender, current co-ordinator of the Madoc and District Chamber of Commerce, will facilitate the regional office. MP Daryl Kramp was on hand for the opening and to promote the program which is part of

the Government of Canada’s Economic Action Plan “Hastings and Prince Edward County is the second largest county in Canada with 9,000 miles of roadway,” he stated. “We are pleased to open a satellite location in this community.” Funding and support by Community Futures is available to new or existing entrepreneurs looking to create, expand, or grow their business. The office has been in Bancroft for some years.

Mary Lynn Rutledge, general manager, said CFDC serves the region from Whitney south to Ivanhoe. “Having a satellite office in Madoc will give both potential applicants and our staff a better opportunity to meet and work together.” She said that through the Eastern Ontario Development Program (EODP) grants are available, while CFDC offers loans to help business start-ups or innovations to expand existing

businesses. Kramp stated his government is doing what they can to “ensure funding opportunities stay in place.” “Most people have no idea how many tentacles of this program reach into our riding. It has helped many businesses get off the ground with a predictable income for the year.” In addition to their services, Community Futures, in affiliation with Comfort Country and the EMC/Central Hastings News

presents a Customer Service Excellence award annually. Kramp, along with Rob Price, chair of CFDC, presented the customer-nominated award to Jeff Brett of Brettwood Machinery Works Limited. Brettwood, located just north of the village of Madoc, is wellknown for facilitating needs of both professionals and hobbyists alike. Brett said the rural location of the business has not been a Please see “Brettwood” on page 4

News - Tweed - The Ontario government is now making available $100 million for municipal infrastructure funding as promised in the 2013/2014 fiscal year. The Small, Rural and Northern Infrastructure Fund is designed to help small, rural and northern municipalities address roads, bridges and other critical infrastructure. The first step in the process of applying for the first $71 million that has become available as of October 1 is for Tweed to show an “expression of interest” for a project and council has decided on a reconstruction of Louisa Street adding a second water line for what they call health and safety issues as well as adding sewer lines on George Street which currently only has water lines. There is only one water line servicing the homes across the river from Louisa Street and Mayor Jo-Anne Albert pointed out at the October 22 council meeting that if that line failed for any reason those homes would be

without water for an unknown amount of time and could cause “serious problems.” If the province accepts the municipality’s expression of interest the next stage in the process is the municipality must obtain a full engineer’s report. Funding for the project would cover up to 75 per cent of the cost but it was suggested the municipality apply for 90 per cent of the total project cost. The discussion about the money being made available by the province led into another discussion about how the province decides who gets the funding and Deputy-mayor Bryan Treanor said he felt that municipalities like Tweed, who carry no debt, were being treated unfairly because the municipalities who are running in the red were being considered first for grants. “The province is making available all kinds of money that they will lend municipalities, in fact we are eligible

for $14 million in loans. The interest on these loans could be as high as $700,000 each year. Just because we are debt free now doesn’t mean we want to create a situation where we will be broke in few years by going into debt.” Councillor Jim Flieler added that Tweed has been able to repair 12 bridges and has not had to go into debt to do this work and agreed that it seems like the province is encouraging municipalities to go into debt so they can collect the interest. Councillor Don DeGenova said that the province has mandated each municipality to come up with an asset management plan and commented on how hard Deputy-mayor Treanor has been working on this project, “This is a very valuable exercise in that it allows us to plan for the future and look at what work we will have to do in the years to come. Assets are things like roads, bridges, buildings, water, sewer and things of that nature.”

The downfall of the NSA

Editorial - Politicians and government officials rarely tell outright lies; the cost of being caught out in a lie is too high. Instead, they make carefully worded statements that seem to address the issue, but avoid the truth. Like, for example, Caitlin Hayden, the White House spokesperson who replied on October 24 to German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s angry protest at the tapping of her mobile phone by the U.S. National Gwynne Dyer Security Agency. “The United States is not monitoring and will not monitor the communications of Chancellor Merkel,” she said. Yes, but has the U.S. been listening to Merkel’s mobile phone calls from 2002 until the day before yesterday? “Beyond that, I’m not in a position to comment publicly on every specific alleged intelligence activity.” By October 27, the argument had moved on. The question now was: did President Barack Obama know the Chancellor’s phone was bugged? (The German tabloid Bild am Sonntag reported that General Keith Alexander, head of the NSA, told Obama about it in 2010. Obama allegedly said that the surveillance should continue, as “he did not trust her.”) Now it was the turn of the NSA spokesperson, Vanee Vines, to deny the truth. “[General] Alexander did not discuss with President Obama in 2010 an alleged foreign intelligence operation involving German Chancellor Merkel, nor has he ever discussed alleged operations involving Chancellor Merkel,” she said. But she carefully avoided saying that Obama had not been told at all. The ridiculous thing about these meticulously crafted pseudo-denials is that they leave a truth-shaped hole for everyone to see. Of course the United States has been listening to Angela Merkel’s phone calls since 2002, and of course Obama knew about it. It would have been quite easy to deny those facts if they were not true. The NSA is completely out of control. Its German outpost was brazenly located on the fourth floor of the U.S. embassy in Berlin, and leaked documents published by Der Spiegel say that the NSA maintains similar operations in 80 other U.S. embassies and consulates around the world. The Guardian, also relying on documents provided by whistle-blower Edward Snowden, reported recently that a total of 35 national leaders have been targeted by the NSA. We know that the German, Brazilian and Mexican leaders

were bugged, but it’s almost certain that the leaders of France, Spain and Italy, Egypt, Israel and Saudi Arabia, and Japan, India and Indonesia were also targeted. Not to mention Russia and China. “Friendly governments and societies that seek to build a true strategic partnership … cannot allow recurring illegal actions to take place as if they were normal,” Roussef concluded. “They are unacceptable.” And you wonder how the brilliant, power-drunk fools at the NSA could possibly have believed they could get away with this kind of behaviour indefinitely. The 4.9 million (!) Americans with access to classified information include 480,000 civilian contractors with the same “top secret” security clearance as Snowden. Even if all the military and public servants could be trusted to keep the NSA’s guilty secret forever (unlikely) and only one in a hundred of the contractors was outraged by it, then there were still 4,800 potential whistle-blowers waiting to blow. If Snowden hadn’t, somebody else would have. When the astounding scale and scope of the agency’s operations finally came out, it was bound to create intense pressure on Washington to rein in the NSA. The agency can deflect the domestic pressure, to some extent, by insisting that it’s all being done to keep Americans safe from terrorism, but it can’t persuade the president of South Korea or the prime minister of Bangladesh that she was being bugged because she was a terrorist suspect. The NSA’s worst abuse has been its violation of the privacy of hundreds of millions of private citizens at home and abroad, but it’s the pressure from furious foreign leaders that will finally force the U.S. government to act. “Trust in our ally the USA has been shattered,” said German Interior Minister Hans-Peter Friedrich on Sunday. “If the Americans have tapped mobile phones in Germany, then they have broken German law on German soil.” This will end up in the German courts, and probably in those of many other countries as well (and Snowden may well end up being granted asylum in Germany). To rebuild its relations with its key allies, the White House is going to have to radically curb the NSA’s powers. Good. We don’t have to listen to the spooks and their allies telling us that since the new communications technologies make total surveillance possible, it is therefore inevitable. “If it can be done, it will be done” is a counsel of despair. Most of the NSA’s ever-expanding activities over the past ten years have served no legitimate purpose, and it’s high time that it was forced to obey both the letter and the spirit of the law.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Eco-terrorists pose a significant threat Dear Editor, This country spends millions every year to battle terrorists or those radical homebrews from inflicting murder and mayhem on innocent Canadians. Yet we have First Nation eco-terrorists who have been perpetrating criminal activity against their fellow citizens for years without feeling the full impact of law enforcement. Why? This latest uprising in New Brunswick is just another example that some out-of-control Indian group believe it has the right to be as extreme as it feels because law enforcement is reluctant to go against the politically correct code by cracking down hard on offenders. When the McGuinty government looked the other way during the Caledonia fiasco it was the signal that Mohawk offenders weren’t governed under the same rules as the rest of us. So criminal activity continues unabated, now directed against oil and gas fracking, even though there’s never been a single incident of water contamination since they started this exploration 50 years ago. If people opposed to green energy

initiatives such as wind turbines and solar panels acted with Molotov cocktails, IEDs and assault rifles, used intimidation tactics, burned police cruisers and seized cameras and sound equipment from the media, how drastic do you think the response would be from the OPP or RCMP? The New Brunswick protestors, who are 85 per cent unemployed, insist they are their own nation and not subject to Canadian laws but why then do they continue to accept millions of dollars annually from the federal government? They could use the jobs that will become available once a gas operation becomes operational. It’s too bad we all can’t get along in this country to support a strong economy that would be beneficial to everyone, including First Nations people. I don’t believe our World War II heroes fought and died on battlefields around the world for the kind of disgraceful terrorist outburst that occurred in New Brunswick. This so-called warrior society is an organized para-military organization with ready access to weapons and it’s about time law enforcement took them seriously. Rolly Ethier, Campbellford

Who knew? By Terry Bush

Editorial - Since nobody else seems to want to step up and admit they knew about the goings-on in the Prime Minister’s Office, I’ll have to fess up. Yes, I knew all about Senator Mike Duffy and his bogus expense claims. I also knew about Pamela Wallin for that matter and Patrick Brazeau and I talked Liberal Senator Marc Harb into doing the right thing and resigning. Prime Minister Stephen Harper, the renowned micromanager, didn’t have a clue what was going on with the senators he handpicked for the chamber of sober second thought but I did. And it was me who asked Nigel Wright to cut a cheque to cover Duffy’s expenses as well. Nobody knew about that but me. What a relief. I feel a load has been lifted from my shoulders and the truth has set me free. The trouble with telling lies is; if you tell them all the time, it’s really hard to remember the truth. So while I’m being honest, I’ll also admit that I really don’t know what my staff is up to even though I’m the editor of this paper. And if you believe any of this, you’re probably a person who takes as gospel every word that comes out of the mouth of the leader of the political party you favour. It’s becoming increasingly difficult to keep up with the Senate scandal when the stories change every day. Mike Duffy’s latest revelations come at a very inopportune time for the Harper government with card-carrying Conservatives congregating in Calgary this week for their annual love-in. What should have been yet another, “You’re doing a great job, hurray for the European Free Trade Agreement,” moment for Harper will now have some Conservatives, especially those of the Progressive persuasion wondering if the Prime Minister has lost a step. I’m sure the Liberals also had a few worries about their future when Jean Chretien faltered during his scandal-filled third term, yet another reason to impose two-term limits on the office of Prime Minister.  Mike Duffy isn’t one to keep his mouth shut. He was a respected broadcaster once upon a time and one who covered his share of scandals. So his latest revelations in the Senate on Monday that not only did he receive money to pay off his expenses but his legal bills were also paid for by the Conservative Party have really stoked the fire. I’m sure if I was a member of the Conservative Party, I might be a little upset at how my donations have been used if this is true. Duffy also said he was given a script by the Prime Minister’s office saying that for public consumption, he and his wife took out a loan at the Royal Bank to repay his expenses and he added that he never saw a cheque from Nigel Wright. Harper’s version of events in the House of Commons on Monday differed from Senator Duffy’s, laying all the blame on Duffy. So who’s lying? My guess is both of them may have a few issues with honesty.  First we had Harper telling Canadians what great assets his hand-picked senators were (most of us realized their greatest asset was the ability to fund raise for the Conservative Party). Then he continued to back them through the early months of the scandal. Next he demanded they pay back their ill-gotten expense money and now that the scandal has taken on a life of its own he is leading the charge cut them loose without pay. One would have to wonder why, when he first learned of the extent of the scandal, he didn’t move to get rid of them then. Harper has also changed his story a few times as far as his former chief of staff Nigel Wright is concerned. Harper said he knew nothing about Wright’s cheque to Duffy as Wright acted alone. Now he admits certain members of the Prime Minister’s Office knew about it but he didn’t. It was said at the time that Nigel Wright resigned for his wrongdoing because he didn’t want to his bad judgment to reflect poorly on the Prime Minister’s Office. It’s almost beyond belief that someone as controlling as Stephen Harper wouldn’t have known what his chief of staff was up to. Then on Monday in a radio interview, Harper dropped the bombshell that Nigel Wright didn’t resign, he was let go for the indiscretion of giving away 90 grand of his own money to, option one: help out a friend or option two: save taxpayers some money. So if Harper now says he fired a man with impeccable credentials because he was part of a cover-up, and Harper admits other staffers in his office knew about this same cover-up, why haven’t we heard of anyone else in the PM’s office being sacked. It’s getting almost impossible to keep track of all this without a program. It does, however, bode well for the Liberals and NDP if they decide to follow the Tory playbook with a few well-placed attack ads during the next election. Fair and transparent government you say … And on Monday as he was wont to do when he was a broadcaster, Mike Duffy broke for commercial adding there was more to come. Stay tuned; this one isn’t going away any time soon.

Old age pensioners beware: poverty looms the big corporations, especially big oil. Likely you’ve spent a lifetime working and contributing tens of thousands of dollars, likely hundreds of thousands, in taxes. Every time you buy something you are still paying the nasty GST no matter how low your income. And no matter that you’ve volunteered thousands of hours of community service, or that generations of your ancestors fought to preserve Canada in two world wars. It’s your damn fault you got old! So just suck it up and accept our meagre handout, which is less than half the poverty line. Yes, line up, seniors-to-be at the cat and dog food sales bins, cause that’s where you’ll find yourself if you’re trying to live on under $1K a month. I know this is true,

because it’s my personal situation. I’ve worked my 40+ years in Canada, as a head village librarian and before that as a cook (chef papers from George Brown). After all those years of hard work and contributing now I’m being treated like a lumpen who’s never done a day’s work or contributed an effing thing in their lives. In fact a lumpen drug dealer I know of, who never worked so didn’t qualify for any Canada Pension Plan, received $1,350 a month—still pitiful. But this is far more than the $950 a month I’m currently receiving because I made the mistake of working, and then when I was forced into early retirement I had to withdraw “too much” ($15K) from my depleted RRSP savings the year before I

turned 65. A beginning solution to some of this inequity would be to raise the minimum monthly OAS payment to at least $1K, which is a measly $12K a year (who can live on that?). But if I were receiving my $400 a month CPP plus $1K a month OAS, well, I could almost survive, and at least I’d be receiving the same amount as the retired local lumpen drug dealer. And I don’t understand why all the younger baby boomers aren’t burning down the offices of their local members of parliament; these younger boomer suckers will have to work and wait until age 67 to begin receiving their OAS pittance. What’s so wrongheaded about chiselling seniors is that we don’t have any surplus

money to spend on luxuries like dining out occasionally, or travelling around Canada, or enjoying cultural activities like the ROM or AGO or even a frigging local evening at the cineplex, with maybe a beer afterwards. Henry Ford knew he had to pay a decent wage so his workers could buy his cars, but these Harperite ideologues are making it impossible for seniors to avail ourselves of the basic necessities of life, much less being able to stimulate our faltering economy by buying a few cultural extras. As my Zen master is wont to say, “Please wake up!”

IPCC earned a seat on witch’s broom

Dear Editor, If you accept global warming information without applying analytical skills, you’re probably a candidate for the witch’s broom. For years, public has been awash with news reports blaming humans for unspeakable present and future weather disasters. It’s no mystery why this has happened. Scary news is an essential ingredient of media headlines. Deniers are shut out, unheard, their subject doesn’t generate lurid headlines. Who wants to hear about something that’s not going to happen? International Panel on Climate Change, sponsored by the UN, was intrinsic in strengthening the global warming myth. Millions accepted their claims as “science.” Two hopelessly flawed events enriched by IPCC, became the framework to unloose a vast flood

of garbage posing as science. On the basis of a three-kilometre-long icecore worried out of the Antarctic in chunks, IPCC said, “Present CO2 concentrations are higher than any time in at least the last 650,000 years.” What proof did IPCC have? None. Each ice segment allegedly representing a year, is hair thin near the surface, gravity makes a blotchy mess of them lower down. Where separation of yearly segments is possible in the first few yards, IPCC cannot match their analyzed segments to previous records of actual CO2 levels. Undismayed, IPCC ignored their failure and plunged ahead. To prove their original statement, IPCC would have to test C02 content of each of the 650,000 years and compare then to today. There is no shortcut. Even if all

the impossibilities were overcome including 100’s of thousands of years lost to gravity and scientists working in sub-zero temperatures; analyzing one a day would take 1,780 years, 1,259 years before Columbus landed. Yet IPCC can boldly say, “CO2 concentrations are higher than any time in at least the last 650,000 years.” Another IPCC claim has been used to bully industry, ensnare governments and impress the credulous; it is CO2 atmospheric content. First measured in Mauna Loa, Hawaii, in 1959 at 316 parts per million (ppm). Although there is no science to measure CO2 backward, IPCC claimed it was only 280 ppm in 1850. This obvious fiction was designed to coincide with the beginning of industrial age. A low estimate necessary for IPCC to illuminate how mankind

media is complicit in maintaining the myth. Globally, environmentalists and the press leaped on this one death as “categorical proof” climate change is real. How a single bear death can be construed as “categorical proof is witchcraft “science.” The number of mature polar bears and their cubs who die every year numbers in the dozens.

One dead polar bear proves nothing. My files are filled with examples of IPCC’s and environmentalists’ numerical nincompoopery and/ or using soaring numbers as a substitute for fact. Broom is ready for takeoff; will you be aboard? Ronald Dabor Sr., RR# 4, Warkworth

What about folks under the bus? Dear Editor, I sit and watch in awe at the situation unfolding in the Senate. It’s like a slow motion car wreck you don’t want to see, but can’t take your eyes off. The purpose of the Senate is to review legislation and act as watchdogs on the Federal Government for the benefit of regional constituents. That would be us good folks. What it has become, thanks to the appointment of 59 Harper Hacks, is a kangaroo court charged to do the will of one man, the Prime Minister; a Prime Minister who sees everyone as expendable when it suits his purpose. Mr. Harper can stand and spew all he wants about Duffy paying back $90,000,

and he may well expect us to swallow that drivel. However, what he does not state is that he knew about it in November but did nothing until February when the polls suggested his base was getting upset. However it was Nigel Wright who actually paid the bill, which we are expected to believe he knew nothing about. Mr. Harper has changed his story so many times about who knew what and when, I don’t know how anyone could believe his “selfrighteous” indignation now. But surprisingly, some still do. Let us not forget that those three Senators, the most rabid Harper defenders, who spared no time or expense to travel the country, no doubt at the party’s behest, and on Harper’s behalf and who played no small role in his re-election are now being turfed under the bus.

Like so many others, for the sake of expediency, without due process, nor a chance to defend themselves they were expected to lie there and take it. Believe me, I’m no apologist for these three, or the many others who find themselves stacked like cordwood under the Harper Bus. But I do believe in the Charter of Rights and Freedoms and in due process and the concept of innocent until proven guilty. That should be the least we can expect in a democracy. What is going on in the government is wrong on countless levels and as fairminded Canadians we should not stand for it. If these three, once fair-haired children of Stephen Harper’s cadre have come to this, what of the rest of us. Denyse Mouck, Stirling

Dear Editor, If you’re approaching age 65 and anticipating receiving a living pension with Old Age Security, well, it ain’t gonna happen under the cheapo conservative Harperite regime. The current rate is around $550 a month, the same as a welfare recipient. And you’ll be treated with about as much respect as a welfare recipient. You now have to prove you qualify: receiving an OAS pension has become like qualifying for Unemployment Insurance (oops, I mean “employment insurance” in Orwell’s newspeak). The Harperite tactic is just avoiding and ignoring you when you become a senior, after all, you are a supplicant, when all that money should be given to

Legion launches annual Poppy Campaign By Richard Turtle

News - Stirling - Officials at the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 228 are anticipating a busy Poppy Campaign in the lead up to Remembrance Day after greeting a full house to the Jiggs Dinner to mark its launch. Poppy Committee Chair Judy Heasman says there are a few new features this year but the annual campaign to promote the wearing of a poppy in remembrance of those who served their country remains much the same. This year, as well as Tribute Candles and poppies either pinned or in sticker form, Legion volunteers will also be offering black rubber bracelets marked with red poppies and white lettering with the words “Lest we forget.” As well, she says, tips will be available for poppy pins. “We still do need volunteers,” Heasman says, noting that despite the support of Legion members there are still plenty of holes to fill in their schedule. “They don’t have to be Legion members [to participate in the poppy campaign]. They can just come in and sign up.” And, she notes, “it’s not selling poppies, because we offer those free.” Locations in the village where Legion members will be stationed in the coming weeks include Foodland, Pro One Stop, the LCBO and Balu’s Pharmacy. A large crowd arrived for the Jiggs Dinner, featuring traditional east coast fare of salted meat cooked with potatoes, root vegetables, greens and cabbage prepared by Ruby Williams, Donna Graff, Barb Drensek, Sue Wilson and Tim Woolacott. And Pease pudding was on the menu as well. Following the meal, live entertainment was provided by barefoot pianist Aggie McPhee who was joined onstage by local favourites Brian Cosbey and Elly Kelly. The local branch also recognized the contributions of its own in recent honours and awards ceremonies where numerous members received their pins and bars and service awards. Marking five years of membership were Christina Thompson, George Thompson, Kevin Daneliuk, Kate Whalen, Helen Buss, Barbara Drensek, Agnes Mahnkopf and Murray McGinn. Recognition of tenyear service went to Gary Kyte, Melody Courneyea, Marie Wellman and Arnim (Archie) Mahnkopf. Gordon Bronson was recognized for 15 years with longer serving members including Andreas Engel (20 years), Judy Heasman and Joanne Tucker (25 years), Jim Chrysler, Fred Heasman and Marilyn Ray (30 years), Gilda Dolph, Kevin McCaugen, Cheryl Paul and D.E. Wanamaker (35 years) and Harvey Leeman and Blair Thompson (40 years). Bars were presented to Reginald Barr (Executive), George Jones (Youth), John Mercer (2nd. Vice) and Judy Heasman (1st. Vice) with Branch Service Awards going to George Jones, John Mercer and Judy Heasman.

The Royal Canadian Legion Branch 228 in Stirling hosted a Jiggs Dinner that also included traditional east coast entertainment provided by barefoot pianist Aggie McPhee. Performing along with her are Brian Cosbey and Elly Kelly. Stirling Legion Poppy Chair Judy Heasman says there are a couple of new items available during this year’s Poppy Campaign but the focus remains on past and present veterans.

The “Heart” of Hospice retires

By Diane Sherman

News - Madoc - Doris Bush graduated from nursing studies at Belleville General hospital in 1965, she spent the last 22 years dedicated to creating and stabilizing end-of-life care for residents of Central Hastings. She, along with Madoc Presbyterian minister the Reverend George Beals, and local family practitioner Doctor Cliff Derry talked in 1990; they agreed there was a crucial need of care in the region for terminally ill individuals and their families. Movement toward establishing a hospice service in Central Hastings resulted in creation of the Heart of Hastings Hospice, officially accredited as a nonprofit charitable organization in 1992. Bush’s dream was to have a residence where folks in their last days of life could receive both professional medical care and spend time with family and friends. That dream was fulfilled this time last year when chair of the board, Dr. Janet Webb, announced at the annual general meeting Hospice House was ready to accept clients. Following this year’s annual meeting, held October 21, volunteers and members of the board presented a special program to honour Doris Bush on her retirement. Dr. Derry says when the hospice service became a re-


ality in 1992 there was “great support to establish a house, but, we didn’t have the money to get one. It took a while.” He commended Bush on her energy to make Hospice work, “Doris jumped into the project and has been the supporting force to keep it going. She will be greatly missed.” Jim Denison, now president of Madoc Kiwanis, was a grassroots member of the first board for the agency. He was invited to speak at Bush’s retirement “roast.” “How in the world can I roast an angel?” Denison asked after a jovial introduction stating Doris was highly energetic and strong on her vision for hospice care. “Doris has a depth of goodness and greatness, not haughty or wanting to show off. “We always wondered what made her tick … always effervescent … willing to take on any kind of task.” He looked at Bush and said, “You made it all happen in accordance to what you visioned.” He went on to say that throughout her practice “… when you appear people become at ease … they know you care for them and bring positive change to their lives.” A slide show followed showing Bush in various roles throughout her life with HHH, with her family, children and her garden.

spoke about her love of nature and her strong yet compassionate decisive character. Bev Maloney, also a nurse with the Victorian Order of Nurses, where Doris served for many years, stated Doris “never forgot patients, their families or the predicaments they may be in.” During the slide show Maloney quoted one of Doris’ sayings, “With friendship and willingness to share skills we will survive.” Bush will not completely leave the hospice behind; she has agreed to conduct a volunteer support meeting once a month, and plans on compiling a hands-on document which she calls an “education depot for families dealing with ALS [amyotrophic lateral sclerosis] commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. In addition she is working on a

children’s bereavement program. She hopes to share these resources with neighbouring hospice services. In commemoration of Doris Bush’s 22 years of dedication, her resourcefulness and efforts, Dr. Janet Webb stated that the board of directors and volunteers agreed to “informally” call the hospice residence “Doris’ Hospice.” Webb said, “We will have a welcoming rock at the entrance with ‘Doris’s Hospice’ written on it to honour her twenty-two years of dedication.”

Good triumphed in age-old fairy tale By Judy Backus

News - Marmora - A crowd of students, siblings and parents arrived at Earl Prentice Public School on the evening of October 24 for the first Books and Blankets session of the season. The initial part of the fun was held in the beautifully refurbished library where teacher Eamonn Doyle read the haunting story of Hansel and Gretel originally written by the Broth-

ers Grimm, and retold with wonderful illustrations created in pastels on canvas by Ian Wallace. Doyle had scanned the pictures onto a computer then transferred them to a new portable SmartBoard which, as Principal Heather McMaster said, had been “purchased by the school council in support of our learning.” The children, many wearing pyjamas and toting blankets,

spread themselves out on the floor to enjoy the story which featured the well-known tale of a brother and sister and their travails and triumphs in the forest. Evil and witchery were part of the tale, but good triumphed in the end. One aspect of the fantasy included a wonderful candy house, which formed the basis for the related activity which took place in the gym. Each student was

presented with a selection of chocolate wafers, fruit loops, jelly beans and twizzlers, along with a bag of royal icing to use as glue, and asked to create their own candy house. With help from parents, who assisted with the application of the icing, a wide variety of houses were soon on display—some with more candy than others since the temptation to nibble on the goodies was hard for many to resist.

The popular occasion, which attracted a total of 60, was the first Books and Blankets session of the school year. Photo: Judy Backus

Not Now I’m Driving a new term for cell phone users By Diane Sherman

News - Madoc - Grade 11 students of Centre Hastings Secondary School received an education on distracted driving last week, specifically the dangers of cell phone use. The Quinte Region Traffic Coalition (QRTC) initiative launched the week of October 21 with a goal to show students not only the risks of distracted driving, but, to provide them with skills for handling distracted driving situations encountered as a passenger. Students viewed a graphic reenactment of a real accident caused by texting while driving and heard remorseful testimonials by family and friends whose text messages led to accidents which killed their loved ones. “It is not just you out there,” explained Central Hastings OPP officer Alana Deubel. “An accident could take the life of an innocent child or

kill their parents.” Brandon Kellar said he has been to the scene of an accident where the probable cause was distracted driving. “My father has a tow truck; we helped carry the bodies of three college girls up from the ditch.”  He is now driving with a G2 licence. He says when he gets into the car “my phone is nowhere near me.”  Deubel said distractions come from many places. “It could be changing the radio, or kids in the back seat.” She said passengers can help prevent accidents by answering a phone, changing the music or tending to needs of the driver.  A new texting term was introduced for drivers with cell phones, one which Deubel encourages all to do. “Your last message before get-

ting into your car should be NNID [Not Now I’m Driving], it will save lives.” Jacob Williams said when he gets his licence he will use that text and turn off his cell phone before driving. Road crashes are the leading cause of death for those less than 24 years of age. One in five accidents is caused by distracted driving and 80 per cent of those are the result of cell phone use. Deubel explained talking on a phone increases the chance of an accident by four to six times, while the potential for an accident when texting is 23 times more likely.  The QRTC is a partnership between the Hastings and Prince Edward Counties Health Unit and police service agencies of Belleville, Stirling-Rawdon, Trenton and OPP detachments serving Bancroft, Cen- Distracted driving plays a large role in deaths of those between 16 and 24 years of age.

Council votes against motocross recommendation study?” John Brewer said, “Our delegation agrees with the County Planning staff that the amendment be deferred until a noise study is done by a qualified professional to determine the negative impacts. This planning committee motion is not consistent with the county’s recommendations.” John went on to cite a number of zoning bylaws describing what constitutes an “obnoxious” use of land. Paula Cassidy spoke about the “transparency” of her application and the McGuires who will be building the track. “We have been absolutely compliant with the pre-determined process as

set forth by the municipality and the county. We fully met and would continue to meet all legal and logistical expectations required and demanded from us through the entire application process and any operating agreement established by the municipality.” Paula’s second point was about the noise concerns and she said she contacted professionals in the assessment of noise who told her that a study would be unprecedented, unnecessary “… and overkill for an event of this nature.” Tweed councillors expressed to the large delega-

tion how difficult a decision it was for them. Don DeGenova said he believed people bought properties with an expectation of peace but added, “There will be no winners out of this … I have been shattered! I am in a position of having to make a decree and I don’t feel right about that. I am not going to lead people down a garden path and have them spend more money than they have spent; I will vote against the track.” In the end, a vote was held and

councillors voted down the recommendation and told the Cassidys that if they came back with a sound study done by a qualified professional describing how far sound will travel from the site then council would revisit the application. Deputy-mayor Bryan Treanor summed it up by saying that the issue would be “laughed” out of an Ontario Municipal Board hearing without some sort of professional assessment.

News - Tweed - A Planning Advisory meeting was held October 7. It was attended by over 50 people who are against a proposed rezoning of land owned by Paul and Paula Cassidy that would see the land go from Rural to Special Rural “… to facilitate the construction of a motocross track and accessory uses for limited motocross events.” Tweed Council met in Marlbank for their regular monthly council meeting and again the room was filled with people against the recommendation put forth from the October 7 meeting that said, “That an assessment of the noise impact of the proposed motocross track be carried out by implementing the following steps: Applicants arrange for several motocross competition motorcycles to be present and operating at the normal competition sound level at the intended motocross site. Those persons objecting as well as those persons assessing the approval of the application and any other interested persons attend the site at the access entrance, the residence or property of any person objecting to the application, and any other location deemed appropriate. [The] sound level to be determined and measured if necessary at these locations.” Two delegations had the opportunity to speak at the meeting one led by Paula Cassidy who is the applicant, and Nat Pearson and John Brewer, representing those opposing the recommendation. Nat spoke first and the main thrust of his commentary was about the negative impact in Madoc with a similar track. “My parents’ home is on Woods Road east of the facility and since 2010 I have experienced firsthand the noise generated by the track.” Nat also spoke of the subjective nature of how sound that may be offensive will vary between individuals. He asked, “What can be gained from unqualified individuals assessing the noise travel from several dirt bikes? What we are concerned with is the nuisance noise generated by 25 bikes, camper trailers with generators and a full blown public address system; how it will impact the use and enjoyment of our properties. “This can only be as ascertained by an unbiased professional. How can council in good conscience make an informed decision without such a

Exploitation of seniors comes in many forms By Diane Sherman

News - Madoc - The annual ecumenical potluck dinner at the Wesleyan-Free Methodist church October 21 was about more than sharing food. It was also about sharing important information for seniors. Ontario Provincial Police

Constable Robin Veerman gave a seminar concerning safety for seniors, including physical safety, emotional and financial abuse, and vulnerability to exploitative predators. Veerman reiterated a common term: “If it sounds too good to be true, it usually is.”

He reminded the audience to be “vigilant.” He cautioned about on-line or telephone solicitations for purchases or money. “The big scam has been calls, supposedly from relatives, claiming to be in trouble and wanting you to send money.” He noted relatives, trusted

friends, or neighbours could be the culprits attempting to gain access to finances or stealing pharmaceuticals from your medicine cabinets. “One incident we [OPP] dealt with resulted in the woman’s grandchild being the bad guy. He was taking her meds from the washroom.” He said prescription drugs are worth money out on the streets, and seniors usually have some form of medication in their homes, so, are good targets for break and enter thefts or exploitation by drug-addicted relatives. The officer also explained if an individual happens to purchase a product or service un-

der pressure, they have what is called a “cooling off period” of ten days wherein they can cancel their agreement. “Often salespeople put on a lot of pressure and you might agree to the purchase of that item or service. You have the right to change that decision within a short time frame. You need to know you have that right and can act on it by law.” Comments from the audience reflected that most did not realize “how bad the situation was with addiction to prescription drugs” or that they had no recourse, without written agreement, if loans to friends or family are not honoured. Brenda Hudson, a former

school teacher and history writer, is now living with dementia; she said this presentation “is a reminder of what and what not to do.” Dorothy Hickey, also a former teacher, noted the information was “extremely informative with good handouts to take home and remind us later.” “It is surprising how many seniors give their personal bank cards and pin numbers to friends or family.” Veerman said. He encouraged everyone to find a trustworthy person to manage their affairs and whenever possible manage their own banking transactions. For information on senior safety contact your local detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police or Safety for Seniors through the Government of Canada <www.publicsafety.> or call your public health agency.

Ecumenical group supports area endeavours Marmora Historical Foundation, saying the donation would be used to put together a slide show based on a collection regarding faith and churches within the area. Jan Easton of Quinte and District Quilts of Valour - Canada, accepted a cheque for $100, displaying the related handmade quilt and the descriptive label indicating the group which supported its creation. The QOV mission is “to ensure our injured Canadian Forces members are recognized for their service and commitment to our country. We give this support through the presentation of quilts to comfort our past and present Canadian Forces members in their time of need.” While holding up the beautiful, partially completed work, created from scraps of donated fabric, Easton mentioned that it would be finished and on its way to an appreciative member of the armed forces within a week. Information provided in a pamphlet explained, “Your quilted hugs of comfort are given to all members of our Canadian Forces, male or female; all land, sea or air personnel; commissioned and non-commissioned and all ranking within the armed forces. We also honour our veterans.” The last to accept a cheque from the group was John Roeper, the Station Manager of United Christian Broadcasters (UCB) Canada. Prior to presenting Roeper with $200, Sharin Williamson, Chair of the Ecumenical Group, commented, “It’s wonderful to be able to support them in all that they do and say.” The organization next meets on the afternoon of November 25 when each of the member church groups will be asked to provide three dozen cookies along with five to ten minutes of entertainment for a pre-Christmas celebration being held at Caressant Care Nursing Home on the afternoon of November 25.

News - Marmora - October 28 marked the first ecumenical meeting of the season for women of the five local churches who gathered at Marmora Pentecostal Church for a tasty homemade lunch, fellowship, a speaker and presentations. The midday event began with uplifting a capella music provided by church member Jessi Hafenbrack, later accompanied by her son Sebastien Waters, who, at the age of seven and a half has a wonderful stage presence. Tara Flagler, Director of Anchor of Hope, a Pregnancy and Family Care Centre located in Madoc, told the group of the organization’s work which has a mission to reach those facing pregnancy or pregnancy related issues. The centre, which can be reached at 613-473-0606, is located on Elgin Street and is open Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m., serves clients in Madoc, Marmora, Stirling, Kaladar, Gilmour “and everywhere in between.” She mentioned that the Anchor of Hope, a non-profit Christian ministry, is comprised of a volunteer executive committee, and managed by the director with help from a staff of trained volunteers. It endeavours to provide support, education, and connection through its many programs along with referrals for such things as medical care, housing and legal assistance. The organization also has access to maternity clothing, and baby care items, including clothing up to size two. Flagler told the poignant stories of the youngest client, a 13-year-old served by the centre, and the oldest who at 80, sought post abortion counselling. As Flagler stressed, “Volunteer help is always needed, as is prayer.” At each of the meetings, a collection is taken, and once a year the funds are presented to area organizations.

Symposium reflects on “the great robbery” By Richard Turtle

News - Belleville - A day-long symposium exploring land use issues, from both First Nations and settler perspectives, offered a historical and social view of the local area and the resulting changes that followed the arrival of the first immigrants from Europe. Held at the Quinte Sports and Wellness Centre and organized by the Deseronto Archives Board and Commu-

nity Archives of Belleville and Hastings County, the Saturday information session, dubbed The Land that Supports our Feet, was attended by about 100 people, much to the delight of organizers. Deseronto Archives Board Chair Paul Robertson says the response was excellent both in numbers and participation. Attendance alone, he says, topped their highest expectations. Beginning at 9 a.m. last Saturday,

the Symposium included registrations, introductions, a keynote address, readings from archival material, a panel discussion and group activities encouraging reflection and discussion And that, says Robertson, along with promoting the importance of preserving the past, was the original intention. It was a notably low-tech session, lacking any elaborate visual displays, charts and graphs and that too was by

design. Participants, he says, were truly engaged throughout, whether listening to the panel, offering input or discussing issues among themselves. Archivist Amanda Hill explains the symposium was intended as an information session to spark further discussion and foster understanding among all Canadians. Open to the pubic and supported by several groups including the Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte, Hastings County Historical Society and the Town of Deseronto, the free session included a Blanket Exercise where a portion of the floor representing Turtle Island, or North America, was covered with blankets. Nearly all in attendance removed their shoes to participate in the exercise that saw the landmass slowly shrink as populations shifted and died in the wake of European settlement.

Later, a panel discussion and question and answer session followed with panellists Mark Brinklow, Mark Bossio, Ed File, Amanda Hill, and Keith Sero along with Panel Chair Marlene Brant Castellano who replaced author and professor John S. Milloy who was unable to attend. And intertwined with the land use issues of today were practices from the past, condoned by governments, to assimilate or annihilate the native population, place a cash value on the land and determine the needs of the people now on it. For many in attendance, it was an eye-opening session worthy of further study and attention. It was a grievous situation, offered one registrant during the question and answer session, “but how the hell are we going to deal with that [grief]?” In response Brant Castellano,

an Officer of the Order of Canada and described as “a bridge between cultures,” noted that in order for all parties to heal, the whole story, including an understanding of residential schools, treaties and the deliberate and successful attempts to spread disease and malnutrition, “has to be told and retold again.” She then, light-heartedly, asked Hill for her perspective as “the beneficiary of the great robbery.” “That’s one reason we’re here today,” noted Hill, “… to mend those bridges.” Panellist Bossio, who confessed to knowing little of First Nations culture or history before arriving in the area nearly 20 years ago, says he has learned a great deal in the interim and his role, and the role of all those in attendance, is to encourage others “to become educated and become educators.”

Family help centre supported locally By Diane Sherman

News - Madoc - The Anchor of Hope pregnancy and family care centre in Madoc has three fund-raising events throughout the year. The fourth annual Baked Potato and Ice Cream Sundae event raised $2,000 for the privately funded service. Heather Tapp is executive director of the Belleville Pregnancy and Family Centre. She said the Anchor of Hope is a “missional satellite” of the Belleville agency which has nurtured similar facilities in both Trenton and Prince Edward County. “This service is essential to Madoc

because there is significant need in this area.” She said since the agency moved into the Elgin Street house, close to the high school, there has been an increase in programs and number of volunteers. Tara Flagler is director of the local satellite office. She said it takes $45,000 to manage the service in Madoc, which has always been privately funded. “Although,” she stated, “this year we were assisted with $1,000 from the municipality and are very grateful for that recognition.” Tapp said a planned giving program “helps with stability” along with fundraising campaigns such as the one held

October 18 at the Madoc Kiwanis Club, and a dessert and entertainment night held in the spring. She explained the agency offers “hope and encourage-

ment with direction and services for parents of all ages, to help them realize their dreams and hopes.” They also do what Flagler calls “the baby bottle drive,”

where baby bottles are left at various locations or offered to churches and groups to fill with change. “We have had a lot of success with this project. Our community is very generous.” Programs are offered for both parents individually, or, together. Flagler says there

are many facets of parenting which “are sometimes difficult to cope with,” “We are here to help with any issues.” For further information contact the house at 613473-0606 or drop by Tuesday through Thursday at 135 Elgin Street in Madoc.

News - Madoc - Members the Canadian Red Cross Quinte are doing a series of demonstrations to share information about the agency while teaching life-saving techniques and hopefully recruit new volunteers. Forty-five local volunteers, five teams, serve Hastings and Prince Edward Counties, with 6,638 volunteers in Ontario. Quinte received 30 calls assisting 99 individuals over the past year with a total of 620 disaster responses in Ontario. Jennifer Bryant manages the Quinte office in Belleville; she says though the agency has been effective when called upon there is a need for more members. Volunteers do not pay for training or transportation she explained. Courses are given at the Belleville location with on-site and practical training. She said there is a need of help in many areas including at the administrative office.  Bryant is the only paid member of the Quinte branch; all others are volunteers.  The agency began in Canada in 1896 led by Dr. George Ryerson and was officially recognized by the government in 1909.  The familiar emblem resembles the cross of Switzerland reflecting the origin of its founder, Henri Dunant, who was inspired by casualties on the battlefield of Solferino (Italy) in 1863.  The service originated as a neutral and independent voluntary service, impartial to human differences, globally unified to “prevent and alleviate suffering, protect life and health and ensure respect for the human being.” Disaster management lead David Al-

lester said, “Preparing for disaster should be ongoing. Knowing what to do and being prepared for anything helps everyone.” He was on hand with literature on the topic and conducted hands-on lessons in cardiopulmonary resuscitation and use of a defibrillator. Using a training defibrillator, simulating the real thing, minus an electrical shock, Allester demonstrated.  Local resident Kent Hamilton, who said he is now 78 years old, had never learned CPR or even anticipated such a thing as a defibrillator. He feels defibrillators should be available in seniors buildings and readily in public.  “I found it all very informative and now I know how to save a life, even with one of those machines.”   He was surprised to learn the agency receives no government funding but is reliant on private contributions.  Bryant said there are many contributors. She commends the Empire Theatre of Belleville for their dedication. Mark Rashotte and Andy Forgie offer their talents and theatre whenever a benefit is needed she told visitors at Arts Centre Hastings last Saturday. “We rely on the public to continue this service keeping with original principles of neutrality. We are autonomous.” Allester said there is an application for Apple and Android devices which links you to directions for response to everyday emergencies including resuscitation.  Potential volunteers and those interested in learning more, or, for the application, go to their web site <> or call the Quinte office at 613-966-0730 extension 101.

Call to consider a management agreement

natives to deliver services, calling on Terry Murphy for comments. Murphy said QCA, which includes three former conservation authorities, has two engineers, two biologists, a health and safety representative, an ecologist and a planner. “Basically,” he said, “the concept is the same as the Crowe except we are bigger and we have more staff. Earlier this year we were asked if we would consider putting together a proposal … and what would it cost to deliver program in the Crowe watershed.” A committee was formed and a proposal put together covering all the program areas concentrating on core programs related to water management. Meetings with CVCA staff and tours of the dams followed. With regard to the distances involved, Murphy said delivering effective programs was possible. He indicated a QCA staff member lived in the Crowe watershed which could be a help with relation to those seeking permits, and mentioned a sub office with three staff members located in Tweed, leading him to say he didn’t think distance would be an issue. He concluded, “Our board has authorized us to continue negotiating and has also made it very clear that regardless of what direction the board [CVCA] decides to go, we are still prepared to offer assistance to the Crowe staff.” Dave Daunter was the first member of the public to speak, having prepared a lengthy written presentation which extended past the five-minute limit, his opinion being that to support the motion to enter a service agreement would be a mistake, would have a major and negative impact on CVCA staff. He suggested the board work as a team with CVCA staff, the Trent Conservation Coalition and QCA to resolve issues. Ritch Smith, representing Crowe Lake Waterway Association said their primary concern was with infrastructure regarding water level management, flood control and flood forecasting. He felt one of the things missing in CVCA was input from property owners, added CVCA wasn’t “big enough to cut it today” and said his recommendation to the CLWA board was that the service agreement was a good idea and should be pursued. Dave Golem, reeve of Limerick Township, acknowledged the huge effort involved in arriving at the current point, but said he didn’t feel that board could, at this point, make an informed decision on the matter. Bob Allen, president of Shaman Power which has a presence at the Marmora Dam, said there had been a long-term operation and maintenance contract in place since 1993 which he would like to see maintained. His concerns related to log operation, and timely support, saying the company provided revenue to CVCA. He was assured by Rand that under a service agreement, that all operations would be “at least as good as they are currently.” Marmora resident Fred Quarrie voiced concerns that if the proposal were to go ahead, the board would hold the liability. Board member Hector MacMillan spoke to the concern saying Quinte would simply be hired as a contractor to deliver the services. Kathy Hamilton indicated that to the average person, the proposal sounded more like a takeover. She referred to a wish to see the excellent service provided by CVCA staff continue, saying the proposal represented “despicable treatment” of the employees. Pat Stollard, representing the Steenburg Lake Community Association, suggested the package didn’t provide enough detail about the service agreement or the evaluation of the current operating conditions at CVCA that led to the recommendation. He stated an understanding the ten host townships’ concern over the long-term risk and liability, and added, “We are, however,

concerned that this board may be rushing to find a solution without properly and fully evaluating all options ….” He added that delegating responsibility to a third party would not absolve the board from risks. Terry Murphy spoke, stressing that at this point it was strictly a proposal and that if the matter went forward then lawyers representing both sides would be involved in the discussions. Terry Stinson of Algonquin Power, which has a presence on Cordova Lake, spoke of the importance of water levels to the business and said how pleased they had been with CVCA’s management of the stop logs, and that operating from a distance might not be the best solution. Former board member Jim Martin, said CVCA had lacked long-term planning, then thanked the committee for looking to the future, his thinking being that the proposal, “with a little more work, could take us into the future in really good shape.” Another previous board member, Bob Ireland, who is vice president of the Wollaston Lake Home and Cottage Association, said he felt there were inconsistencies within the proposal, the major item being the governance model which he said had not yet been worked out. He suggested “service level agreements are absolutely key in making something like this work.” He also had an issue with only one CVCA board member potentially sitting on the QCA board. He had concerns with changes to personnel, saying those who had been working at CVCA for some time knew the watershed better than anyone else. Vesa Koivusilo, a Crowe Lake property owner, wondered if there would be any consultation with lake associations or with residents of the area. He also asked that

if the details couldn’t be worked out, was there a way to back out. Ron Gerow responded that the board was open to all in terms of helping to move forward with the long-term plan. He said, “What I see here today is a proposal that has been put together by Quinte and by our committee … There is a lot of detail to be worked out and if the board is of the mind that they wish to continue to entertain the proposal from Quinte, that the real work is yet to be undertaken in terms of the detail of the plan … The board has been very clear. They have given the committee the mandate to go and speak with Quinte in terms of the basics of a plan.” Board members were invited to comment with Suzanne Partridge saying that for her it would be necessary, not optional, to have a satellite office for area residents. Hector MacMillan suggested the board continue with the creation of an agreement with QCA, moving that “The board consider all public comments and that the sub committee further investigate the service agreement and report to the Full Authority Board on November 7. The resulting recorded vote, which was not weighted, ended in a tie which as Rand indicated, meant that it failed. Following the meeting, Terry Murphy commented, “We were approached back in April by the Crowe board to entertain the idea of putting together a proposal to deliver services … The decision made today was their board decision and we have to respect that. We will continue to offer our professional assistance if the Crowe needs it ….”

Ron Gerow indicated he appreciated the public’s comments, then said, “I guess I am disappointed that the board has chosen not to continue to look at the proposal. I think it certainly had some merit and the building blocks for the base of the agreement will now never be known unless there is reconsideration by the board … The issues that led up to taking a look at the other alternatives are now back on the table again and what does that mean for our municipalities in terms of its future with the CVCA. My question to the Board in November will be how do we move forward from here ….”

Barry Rand stressed that he was very impressed with the number of people in attendance, saying their input reflected the communities’ interests and concerns about the future. I think it was a challenging decision for this board to make … From an operational point of view, the proposal is a significant departure in some ways from the way we currently operate and probably explains the breadth of opinions … The committee did work hard and came up with what they considered to be a reasonable proposal and the board has voted to not continue with that development.”

Centre Hastings Grizzlies report Sports - The Ontario Truss and Wall Peewee AE Grizzlies opened up the Stirling Blues Fall Classic Peewee Tournament on Saturday, October 26, with a 3 - 0 win over the hometown team. Their second game against the Pelham Panthers was a close game, but the Grizzlies ended up on the wrong end of a 2 - 1 score. With the loss still fresh in the Grizzlies’ memories, they came out and dominated Port Hope in their third game of the day by a 5 - 1 score. A 2 - 1 round-robin record matched Centre Hastings up against the same Port Hope Panthers in the semi-final on Sunday. This game was much closer with both teams trading scoring chances, but once again the Grizzlies fought to a 2 - 1 victory to secure a spot against the Stirling Blues a mere hour later in the championship game. Like all games in this tourney, nothing was easy for the Grizzlies as they trailed 2 - 1 late in the third period. With only 47 seconds left, Nathan O’Connor found the back of the net with an assist from Austin Smith to tie the game and send it to a three-on-three overtime period.

Nothing was settled in the extra frame, sending the final to a sudden death shootout. Fortunately for the Grizzlies, Reese Preston scored on his opportunity while Grizzlies goalie Jaden Schirmers stoned the Stirling shooter giving the Peewee AE Grizzlies a thrilling end to a championship game. Atom update The McDonald’s Atom A Grizzlies continued to show improvement as they took on the division-leading Stirling Blues in a double header last weekend. On Friday, the Grizzlies fell to the Blues by a final score of 5 - 2. Gritty centre Phoenix Smith and Captain Kellen Dostaler both had impressive goals for the Grizzlies, but the powerful Stirling squad proved to be too much for Centre Hastings. However, a refocused Grizzlies team showed up for the second half of the home-and-home series and fought to a five-all tie on Sunday in Marmora. Marek Skalba took a pass from Dostaler and opened the scoring for the Grizzlies early in the game. Dostaler scored on a quick shot late in the first frame to give

his team a 2 - 1 lead. With the Grizzlies behind 4 - 2 in the second, Smith scored to bring his team within a goal heading into the third period. Goals by Smith and Tyler Sawkins tied the game at five and Skalba nearly sent the home town crowd into a frenzy when he just missed the net after a breakaway opportunity with less than one minute left on the clock. The game ended with both teams notched at five goals apiece and the standing ovation from the crowd was a good indication that both teams gave it all they could through all three periods of play. Anna-Belle Phillips was outstanding late in the game as she made three key saves to preserve the tie for her team. Assists in both games were provided by Dostaler (3), Ben Bailey (2), Skalba, Carter Cassidy and Braeden Cassidy. Junior Tykes Video cameras and phone cameras got a workout last Saturday, in Madoc as the Centre Hastings Bayview Park Junior Tyke Grizzlies hit the ice in their first exhibition play versus the Percy Bulldogs.

this group was both excited and nervous with only three returning veterans, meaning the other nine players were playing their first game ever. Though the Grizzlies lost to Percy, five different Centre Hastings players were able to net goals for their team, including Nathan

Deline, Jake Morrison, Carter Rowles, Keegan Goulah, and Tait Rosborough. Centre Hastings is looking forward to a re-match in Percy at 10 a.m. on Saturday, November 9. Thanks to Eric Harvey for helping out on the bench to make this game happen.

Capping a perfect season

St. Paul’s Brandon Allison (red) and Nicholson’s Chase Bennett Copeland collide while going for a loose ball during the Bay of Quinte junior boys soccer finals Monday at Mary-Anne Sills Park.

By Steve Jessel

Sports - Belleville - The Nicholson Catholic College (NCC) Crusaders overcame a rocky first half to claim their second consecutive Bay of Quinte junior boys soccer championships title Monday, besting a game St. Paul’s Falcons side by a final score of 4 - 0. The win caps off two consecutive undefeated seasons for the Crusaders. “This is a special team,” said coach Stephan Auray. “They haven’t lost a game since they came in, in Grade Nine, and that’s a feat in itself.” With a strong wind at their backs, it was the Falcons who came out firing early, dominating possession and consistently putting pressure on the Crusaders goal. However, the Falcons forwards were having trouble putting the ball on net despite several quality opportunities, and with time winding down in the half found themselves unable to crack the Crusaders’ net. They came to regret those missed opportunities when just before the half, Nicholson’s Alex Phillips potted his first goal of the afternoon on a high, looping shot that came down just over the head of the Falcons’ netminder. The Falcons tried to respond but couldn’t find any luck of their own, and the Crusaders led 1 - 0 at the half. “I think that we played a very good team … we got lucky at the end of the first half, and they dominated the first half, there’s no doubt,” Auray said. “As soon as we stuck to our game … we’re very quick when we put the ball on the ground, and when we started doing that, well you see the end result.” With the sides now switched and Nicholson now with the advantage of the wind at their backs, the game quickly shifted in their favour. Just minutes into the second half, Phillips netted his second goal on a header from inside the penalty area, and the Crusaders weren’t done there. Another Nicholson goal, this time by Chase Bennett Copeland, gave the Crusaders a comfortable 3 - 0 lead, and there was little the Falcons could do to narrow the deficit. A final goal by Nicholson’s Ryan Jarvis was more than enough to seal the

win for the Crusaders, and although the Falcons played a strong first half the second part of the game proved to be their undoing. “They’re very humble in their success, because they know there’s still a job to be done,” Auray said of his team. Both teams now head to COSSA competition Thursday. As of press time times and locations had not yet been released. “They’re going to have to be mentally tough, and they are,” Auray replied, when asked what it would take to win at COSSA. “They’re very resilient, but they just need to play their game and stick to the game plan.”

Wolves fall to Belleville in shootout

Sports - Sudbury Wolves rookie goalie Troy Timpano was looking to gain valuable experience in his first career OHL home game start Saturday night as the Belleville Bulls came to town. Despite not earning a victory, as the Wolves fell 3 - 2 in shoot-out, Timpano got the learning experience he was looking for. Timpano faced a pile of shots, stopping 41 fired his way in regulation, held his ground in overtime and got a taste of what a shootout is like. Not bad for a kid who is still just 15 years old. “It was something else,” Timpano said. “It was my first home start. It was a great feeling to play in front of the home crowd. It’s all about development for me. I’ve come into this league at 15 and to have a game like this will only help my future. I learned a lot. I know I have to be better.” Timpano was tested early and often and made 12 saves in the first period, including a point-blank save on a blistering one-timer from the Bulls. Timpano showed the Sudbury coaching staff exactly what they wanted to see: a

composed and competent net minder. “I thought Troy Timpano was outstanding. It was a big game for him,” said Sudbury head coach Paul Fixter. The Wolves know they let a great opportunity slip through their clutches by not knocking off the Bulls in regulation or overtime. They blitzed the Bulls with 53 shots overall. The Wolves also squandered three straight power play chances in the first period by not cashing in and breaking the backs of the Bulls early. “We have to be on our toes all the time against every team. We have to play better defensively,” forward Mathew Campagna said. Sudbury scored the only goal of the first period. Nicholas Baptiste was in the right place at the right time and dumped in a juicy rebound into a wide open net at 2:58 to give Sudbury a 1 - 0 lead. Belleville took over in the second period and scored three goals to Sudbury’s one marker in the frame. Belleville got goals from Jordan Subban and two from Brendan Gaunce, while Nathan Pancel replied for Sudbury. The Bulls took a 3 - 2 lead into the third period.

By Steve Jessel

It took a long time for the Wolves to get out of the hole. Mathew Campagna scored on a later power play at 15:45 to tie the game at 3 - 3. Overtime solved nothing and the game went to the shoot-out. Baptiste got the Wolves on the board by scoring on the first opportunity on Bulls net minder Charlie Graham. Timpano stopped Luke Cairns on his first shot faced. Pancel was unable to reply on the next turn. Subban scored on his chance. Dominik Kubalik was robbed by the glove of Graham to keep it tied. Gaunce made no mistake on scoring and gave the Bulls the 3 - 2 shoot-out victory. “It is disappointing losing a point,” Fixter said. “As long as you can continue to get points, that is a good thing.” It was a game that also wreaked havoc on the health of the Wolves. Forward Matt Schmalz left in the first period with a mouth injury and needed repairs to fix some of his teeth. Captain Kevin Raine also left in the first period with an upper body injury. Both players didn’t return to the game. Schmalz is expected to be back in the lineup Sunday against Mississauga. Raine will be re-evaluated on Sunday to determine the seriousness

of his injury. It comes at a bad time as the Wolves were already battling the injury bug. On Friday, forward Jacob Harris left the game in the third period after being hit in the head. He didn’t play Saturday and is listed as day-to-day.

The Wolves hit the road to play the Mississauga Steelheads Sunday at 2 p.m. Fixter wants to see better defensive play as well as some familiar faces. “I want to see some bodies in the lineup,” he said.

St. Paul’s crowned champs

Sports - Belleville - The St. Paul’s Falcons broke new ground this past week, claiming the team’s first-ever junior girls rugby championship, and coach Dave Christie said he couldn’t be happier. “It feels fantastic, it’s been a long time coming,” Christie said. “[The team] played unbelieveable, we’re so proud of the girls. They showed up today … they played relentless all day.” In a game that was only as close as the opening kickoff, the Falcons put on a dominant showing to best the Centennial Chargers by a score of 44 - 0. The Falcons rode a strong performance by Makenna O’Neill, who

scored three tries and converted two penalty kicks to victory, relentlessly pushing up and down the field against a game but overmatched Centennial squad, who were also looking for their first junior girls rugby title. The Chargers will have to wait until next year though, as additional tries from Skye Verheyen, Mikenzie Richard, Haley Wilman, Megan Reid and Whitney Morton were just too much for Centennial to handle. Meanwhile, in the senior final, the Trenton Tigers handily defended their title and capped off their undefeated season with a 32 - 0 victory over the Bayside Red Devils. Tigers player Brittany Whiting was the unquestioned star of this game, rumbling for a pair of tries including a dazzling second half run where she shook off several Bayside players on her way to scoring, and despite a late drive by Bayside the Trenton

defence stayed stout en route to an abbreviated shutout victory. “It feels great, it just shows that hard work pays off,” said Trenton coach Brian Meindl. “The girls have had a great, undefeated season … playing against some great teams,” he said. “The Bay of Quinte rugby loop is always fantastic. The team really came to play, not giving up a point all day, and we’re really looking forward to COSSA in Norwood on Thursday. Our goal is to make it to OFSAA, and with hard work we might just get there.” The COSSA AA and AAA girls rugby finals take place October 31, in Norwood and Belleville respectively. In AAA, Bay of Quinte will be represented by Centennial, Bayside and Quinte Secondary School, while in AA, Trenton, Bayside and St. Paul’s will travel to Norwood as Quinte representatives.

Occupational Therapist uses coffee to break the ice at 8 Wing

By Ross Lees

News - Trenton - Customers at the Tim Hortons coffee shop on RCAF Road received a pleasant eye-opener last Friday. Brighton Occupational Therapist Phillip Leadbeater put down some money to pay for coffee for all customers ordering coffee at 10 a.m. until the money ran out. He made the gesture to heighten awareness of Occupational Therapy Month (October). A consultant with Veteran’s Affairs Canada, Mr. Leadbeater felt there was no better way to make contact with the military than through Tim Hortons coffee. “What better way to bring attention to occupational therapy than at Tim Hortons,” he noted, pointing to the company’s connection to the troops in Afghanistan. “It is my intent to acknowledge our troops and their families and say ‘Thank-you for your service.’ It is my intent to be there to educate anyone regarding the use of occupational therapy, especially with a focus on post-traumatic stress disorder [PTSD], anxiety, and depression and to acknowledge the contribution of Tim Hortons Corporation and specifically Tim Hortons at 8 Wing in Trenton.” Mr. Leadbeater said occupa-

tional therapists work hand-inhand with psychologists in the community and with the individuals and families dealing with issues such as PTSD, anxiety or depression. “We thought if we could come here to the base and buy coffee and get somebody’s attention, we just might be able to change somebody’s life in the meantime,” he said. Mr. Leadbeater has a strong tie to the military. He served 18 years in the Army as a medic from 1979 to 1995. He has now been an occupational therapist for 18 years, dealing regularly with veterans who now suffer from PTSD, anxiety or depression as a result of their service in places like Somalia or Rwanda. It is his aim to treat them and help get them out of the house and back to being productive members of the community. “They may not be working, they watch their spouse go off to work, they’re sitting on the couch watching TV and know there’s got to be more to life than just this and they don’t know where to turn,” he stated. “That’s when they make the phone call to Veteran’s Affairs and ask for help from an occupational therapist. “There may be a portion of the day they cannot deal with

because of a physical illness, an injury or mental health issues and we can get in there and help out,” he said. “We’re a very unique profession that way and nobody knows about us.” When he first got into the profession, Mr. Leadbeater recalls treating a lot of seniors needing grab bars, scooters, and wheelchairs but his clients have now changed somewhat to those receiving treatment for PTSD, anxiety, stress and depression. Also, the average age has dropped. “I still have some seniors to look after, but it’s the young guys you want to get to mould and get back to their life. We’re a small, tight community,” he said of the military and former military. He said over the years there has always been a common denominator of young people making selfless sacrifices for their country and that is unchanged. “Fifty years from now, I’ll guarantee you, our young troops will step up and be proud of our country,” he stated. He said Olympic athletes are often given notoriety for their accomplishments, and while he salutes their accomplishments, he notes it does not rank up there with the sacrifices many Canadian troops make.

County making plans to host ParaSport Games for the first time By John Campbell


News - Northumberland - The county will soon find out which sports will be played and where at the 2014 Ontario ParaSport Games that will be held in Northumberland next year. “We are currently looking at nine sports,” director of economic development Dan Borowec told county council recently, but none have been confirmed as yet as negotiations continue

with Sport Alliance Ontario. “This is bit of a complex affair,” Borowec said, because the planning involves making arrangements for all seven municipalities to share in the role of hosting the games May 30 to June 1, the first time they will be held in Northumberland. More than 425 participants, including athletes, coaches, managers, support staff and officials are expected to take

part during the three days of competition involving athletes with disabilities. “The community support for this has been significant,” Borowec said. The Games Organizing Committee, led by former MP Paul Macklin, has about 20 members looking after finances, human resources, sponsorships, fund raising, marketing, communications, technological support, online presence, sport venues and registration.

Borowec said the county is “well on the way” in its preparations for the games but it’s “also trying to manage expectations,” as to what they will mean for Northumberland, as it looks to sponsors to help fund the event. The county, when it made its bid, estimated the event could cost close to $250,000 but realize a profit of nearly $31,000. The provincial government is contributing $60,000.

There are more than 40 parasport organizations in the province but the county has to be “realistic” as to how many sports will be represented and the number of athletes that will be coming, he said in a later interview. “Some out there may think … we’ve got 4,000 folks coming,” Borowec said. “We’re not the Pan Am Games … We’re doing everything in our power to Continued on page B3

And on this farm he had a robot, E-I-E-I-O The labour-saving process is simple enough: Pellets cattle find tastier than the feed available elsewhere in the free stall environment—the “candy … they crave” contains a lot of the “starch and energy” in their diet. Lynn said it entices them to enter the unit where a sensor detects the animal’s presence. A robotic arm cleans its teats, attaches a milking machine, and removes the device when the milking is done. The cows, in effect, set their own schedule but an identification tag that each wears is read by the unit to prevent frequent feedings and ensure they’re being milked at appropriate intervals. “You don’t need to be there milking those cows because they’re milked through the whole day,” Ron said, and that frees up Ron Watson and his son Lynn did a fair amount of research before deciding to expand their operation north of Campbellford time to do other chores. The computerized system also on 7th Line East by building a barn with a robotic milking system. “It’s a big investment,” Lynn said, but the new system will reduce their workload and improve productivity. He said the technology is similar to that used in the car plant where he once spills out a wealth of data the Watsons will use to improve the worked. Photo: John Campbell By John Campbell

News - Trent Hills - Old MacDonald’s jaw would drop if he could see what’s taking place on dairy farms these days: automated milking. That will soon be the case for Ron Watson and his son Lynn who are expanding their dairy operation north of Campbellford using robotic technology. They currently milk 39 cows twice a day in a barn built in

1920 that is no longer big enough to meet their needs. “We’re crowded,” Ron said. “We wanted to build for the future.” They looked at various options and initially rejected the notion of using a robot because the technology is so expensive but further research that included trips to other parts of the province convinced the two men it “was a better way to go.”

There’s much more robotic milking being done in western Ontario, Ron said, but the technology is spreading eastward. Their barn, when finished, will be only the second of its kind in Northumberland County. When the 18,500-squarefoot building with attached milk house currently under construction is completed, it will include a single milking unit capable of handling up to 60 cows.

despite concerns expressed by some that lowering trade barriers could hurt Canada’s supply management system that has served milk producers so well. “I don’t pay a whole lot of attention to the politics side of it,” Ron said. “There’s nothing I can do to change it … Everybody has always been afraid of this happening, that happening.” There have been “a lot of times if you had done something and not listened to the naysayers, you’d have been further ahead. I like to think the industry will stay strong.” For dairy farmers to survive and do well, you have to reach a certain size “to be sustainable,” Lynn said. He and his father had hoped the new barn would be operating by now but with the delays the project has encountered, such as flooding at the site caused by heavy rains, it appears the earliest start date will be sometime in December.

productivity of the herd as well as to maintain its health. “Part of it is to get the flexibility and lifestyle we want,” Lynn said, and to ease a workload that can be physically demanding. “Both of us were starting to get sore shoulders, and it’s only a matter of time before your knees go.” He also noted that “you’ve got to keep growing or you’re going to fall behind, that’s just the way it is in the industry … It only makes sense to go that route where everybody’s going.” Lynn pointed out the new barn, which will include “the best bedding you can have” and an open area where the cattle can roam freely, will provide “better cow comfort” for the herd. “The happier the cow is, the better they’re going to do, no question,” he said, and “the longer they live the more productive they’ll be.” Both men have confidence the dairy industry will remain strong,

Woodlot work poses numerous dangers By Richard Turtle

News - Ivanhoe - A lot of bad things can happen when you are alone in the woods with a chainsaw, says Sharlene Matacheskie, but understanding your environment and the dangers within can ultimately save your life. So, she says, “better a thousand times careful than one time dead.” Matacheskie, a certified First Aid Instructor who owns and operates Safety 4 All, provided an evening workshop at the Huntingdon Veterans Community Hall last week organized by the Quinte Chapter, Ontario Woodlot Association. And the message to the approximately 20 in attendance was clear: Be prepared. A range of injuries can result from manual work, and operating machinery of various types, she says, and in a solitary work environment the results, far more often and for obvious reasons, can be life-threatening. In many cases, such as heart attack, concussion, broken bones or being pinned by equipment or

falling debris, time is a critical factor and, “if nobody knows where you are, how are they going to come and get you?” In a best-case scenario, she says, cell phones with GPS offer an opportunity for quick location, but out of range of service or in need of a charge the devices can be rendered useless. Best for someone to know exactly where you are going and when you will be back, she says. And regardless of terrain or other obstacles, “if you got in there, [emergency crews] can get in there,” she adds. And in offering a time of return or contact, she says, a search can be initiated almost immediately if no word is received. Matacheskie also discussed the importance of carrying a first aid kit as well as the appropriate responses to various scenarios ranging from amputation to dehydration. Fatigue, she adds, is also a contributor to workplace accidents and everyone working alone should structure breaks regularly

throughout the day. And during those breaks, she says, “don’t be sharpening your saw.” Using training devices, Matacheskie also explained the use of automated external defibrillators (AEDs) and the benefits of a quick response to heart attack. And in all instances, she says, “think prevention first.” And in case of emergency, she adds, it is equally important to remain calm, think clearly and seek medical help. The evening workshop precedes several upcoming courses in November and December. Scheduled over two days and focusing on different aspects of Standard First Aid and CPR/AED, a session specific to the woodlot will be offered December 9 and 10 at the Red Cross building at 88 Parks Drive in Belleville. Full information on courses and registration is available by contacting Sharlene Matacheskie at 613-921-5541, visiting <> or emailing Using training devices, First Aid Instructor Sharlene Matacheskie demonstrates the proper use of an automated external defibrillator, like those seen in many public buildings. <>.

“We hear of the Olympics and [athletes] wearing the Canadian flag while we have troops wearing the Canadian flag for our country every friggin’ day and they don’t get the accolades that

they get from the Olympics,” he stated. “There’s a big difference between life and death in sports and life and death in the military situation. I’m proud to be able to work with veterans and those meant to be there.”

He says occupational therapy had its roots in World War I when the veterans returned to civilian life. “It’s an honour to be associated and have that strong link with the troops,” he added passionately.

engage as many sports as possible, plus make this as interesting for people as possible.” He told council it looks like two organizations that have never done an event together before, one representing golfers who are blind and the other representing golfers with physical disabilities, will join forces for a two-day event at next year’s games. “We’re in pretty good shape for the venues,” Borowec said, but it’s up to Parasport Ontario to decide where the games are to be played, “to make sure we have the facilities to match up with

their technical needs.” It’s “an involved process, we’re playing mix-and-match in order to make things work,” he said later. “We haven’t paired sites to sport yet.” Kari Spry, the county’s economic development co-ordinator who’s doubling as the games co-ordinator, said October 23 she’s hoping to make an announcement on the chosen sports and their venues “within a couple of weeks.” The Ontario ParaSport Games are designed to give host municipalities the opportunity to make their community barrier free and leave a legacy for citizens with a disability. Toward that end a special meeting

was held October 24 in Cobourg in which businesses were advised on how to make their premises barrier-free. One of the guest speakers, Warden Hector Macmillan, said it’s about “working toward becoming an all-inclusive community. Municipalities in the past didn’t recognize that there’s a lot of people who have some sort of impairment.” Making upgrades to remove barriers that have been in place for some time can be “a big challenge for some of our older heritage buildings,” he said, “but there is an economic benefit” for businesses to make their places accessible to all.

Trent Hills doctors go topless in support of breast cancer awareness

News - Trent Hills - A bevy of male doctors from Trent Hills have gone topless to support a local fund-raising initiative and to raise breast cancer awareness. The Campbellford Memorial Hospital Foundation (CMH Foundation) has produced two “Hooters for Healthcare” calendars to raise funds for the purchase of a new digital mammography machine for the hospital as part of the Flourish Campaign. Doctors Paul Williams, Glen Gibson, Neil Pritchard, Ian Park, Bob Henderson, Joe Barbero, and Brett Jamieson have all bared their chests to support the latest initiative. The campaign goal is $700,000. According to John Russell, executive director of the Foundation, a little more than half of the money has been raised so far through a variety of fund-raising ventures. Community support for the

campaign is strong evidenced by the number of cheque presentations published in the Trent Hills Independent. There are two calendars, one for 2014 and another for 2015 and they feature local women and men, discreetly posing topless and sharing their personal and inspirational stories about how breast cancer has touched their lives. The calendars were the idea of Flourish Campaign Co-ordinator Tonya McColl-Smith. As McColl-Smith explained, “The response to our call for calendar girls was so enthusiastic and included seven local male doctors who wanted to take part to show their support for the campaign and raise awareness that men can also get breast cancer.” “We were thrilled the doctors agreed to pose. The photo, featured on the September 2015 page, includes a touch of humour, while demonstrating their

dedication to fighting breast cancer,” she added. Laurie Smith, physician liaison for the Campbellford hospital, said, “the docs understand the importance of a well-equipped hospital and are always very supportive of the CMH Foundation’s fund-raising efforts.” She added, “Their photo is incredible and in a bold way demonstrates their passion and dedication to quality health care in the area.” The photos for the “Hooters for Healthcare” calendars were taken by Sarah Rowland of Creations Behind the Lens. The 2014 and 2015 calendars are $20 each and available at several locations in Trent Hills, including: the CMH Foundation office; The Holmestead Printing in Campbellford; the Campbellford/Seymour Community Foundation office; Earth Angel in Campbellford; Bridgewater Cof- Seven Trent Hills doctors are being featured in the 2015 “Hooters for Healthcare” calendar for the month of September, to fee and Donuts in Hastings; and raise funds for the purchase of a new digital mammography machine for the hospital and raise awareness about breast cancer.

The right to be a parent

Lifestyles - I often gaze wistfully at that fashionable fall outfit: an oversized tunic with a belt over leggings. It looks so comfy cozy. But even though I like it, I can’t quite bring myself to buy it. Leggings on someone on the wrong side of forty

The Good Earth: Lifestyles - It’s been a slow go the last week or so, Gentle Reader. I picked up a cold that just knocked me for such a loop that I wound up taking some days off of work. You know, you wake up feeling so-so, thinking you can get through the workday but shortly into it you realise that things just aren’t going so well. It’s a tough balance between getting the job done—and filling up the pay packet—and ducking the garlic that co-workers throw at you while hissing, “Go Home, you sick, infectious person!” As a direct result, we have our 5th Odds and Sods column for the year. O&S#1 Community Event #1 - Before illness laid me low, Mrs. Clost and I took in a special hockey game between the 8 Wing lads and a bunch of really plucky doctor types. It was a fund raiser as the TMHF folks were supporting a Wellness Fund for TMH staff. It’s a great cause and it was a hoot to watch; there is no doubt that hockey is an integral part of our culture. Some younger folks, though, seemed to have difficulty in figuring out the scoring difference between goals and assists; we did suggest to Cassandra that she ask Sylvain to explain it to her. Community Event #2 - I had the good fortune to visit with the Stirling Horticultural Society and I enjoyed my time with them. They’re a great group of people who fully understand the collegial approach to this wonderful hobby and certainly work together very nicely. It was surprising to learn that one could take a trip to many countries and not leave home. It is tough sometimes to make time in a busy season to get out to the clubs for talks and presentations but it is something most of us enjoy. The trick, for those of you who might want to include some horticulture in your speaker series, is to make contact far enough in advance so we can include the chat in our work plans. O&S #2 Plant Bulbs Now - This is the time to get your bulbs into the ground. True, there is still a month of planting but the days are fairly warm making the job more comfortable. Common advice is to plant the bulbs three times their measurement, e.g. a two-inch bulb gets buried six inches. I suggest you go a few inches deeper. There are two comments I’d like

I do not understand this helpless attitude, whether it’s about clothing choices or other teenage behaviours, and I would like to tell parents, loudly and clearly, you are the parent. You have the right, indeed the obligation, to set standards. If you do not exercise your right to act like a parent, then you are abdicating your responsibility to our culture. Our culture is the one that adores Miley Cyrus’ new persona. Do you really want to turn your child over to that? Parents should not feel guilty for acting like parents, and yet so many of us are insecure. Do we even have the right to tell our kids what to do, or what to wear? The insecurity is understandable. In 2008 in Quebec, a 12-year-old girl took her father to court for grounding her from a class field trip. She had been using the

to make about bulbs: I won’t write a whole article on them because all of the important info is readily available. Spacing: we sometimes get confused when planting large clumps or drifts and think we need to plant the bulbs close together. Not so, GR. Tulips, daffs and other larger bulbs need at least five inches of space. Once they pop up in the spring their foliage will want the chance to stretch out to maximise sun catching. You will still have a solid mass of colour and the plants will be happier. Smaller bulbs, such as muscari and crocus enjoy a three-inch buffer from their companwith real meat to it, and check out ions. Collections: the marketing boffins horticultural trade shows and courses have chatted with the growing bof- through such organisations. In closing this week, I’d like to fins to put together combinations of various bulbs and colours that will thank you, Gentle Reader, for all of produce a co-ordinated effect in a your nice comments about the colsmall space. If you have a patch in umns concerning the plants on our your yard that is a titch bare in the property. If you were to drive by it, spring, waiting for the perennials you would have a tough time believto fill in, have a look at some of the ing that all of those named are actually present.

Internet inappropriately and sending inappropriate texts, so he put his foot down. She sued. And the Quebec courts, even on appeal, have decided the girl was right. With this sort of ridiculousness around us it’s easy to feel like we don’t have a right to demand things of our kids. The schools should raise them, and if our culture has decided that Miley’s antics are the new normal, who are we to say they’re wrong? We may be uncomfortable with all the texting, and with all the explicit shows kids watch, and with the sexual activity, but these things are normal today. To fight back is like trying to hold a tsunami at bay. It’s too much. Yet is it really? What does it matter what the rest of our culture says? It is not our culture that is going to have to deal with

the repercussions of a teenager dropping out of school, or feeling great shame for something he or she has done, or getting hooked on drugs. It is you, the parent. It is not our culture that will have to pick up the pieces, patch a broken heart, or help someone detox. It is not the school that will be there when a girl derails her educational future because she gets pregnant, or a boy decides to waste his life on video games instead of investing in college. It is you. You are the only one who loves your child more than life itself. You are the only one with a vested interest in how your child turns out. You’re the only one, then, that really matters. So do something! You have power. You control the Wifi, the television, and the money that pays for the cell phone. Use that power. Say no. Be a parent. And please, no tights.

doesn’t quite work for me, even if the tunic does cover a multitude of flaws. Yet increasingly leggings aren’t working even for those on the right side of forty, namely because people aren’t pairing them with long tunics; they’re wearing them with shorter shirts. What was once fashionable becomes floozy. It’s not even flirty; it’s just gross. There are some parts of one’s anatomy which should never be covered in thin, skin tight fabric. As terrible as it is when adult women commit this fashion fauxpas, it’s worse when teen girls do it, because it means some parent somewhere has allowed a child to dress in public like that. One mom I know is heartbroken about her daughter’s clothing but feels rather helpless. Her daughter refuses to wear anything except tights as pants.

Celebrating Hallowe’en around the world By John M. Smith

Lifestyles - It’s that time of year again when we buy candy and pass it out to young ghosts, goblins, and monsters that come to our doors on Hallowe’en (All-Hallows Even/“hallowed evening”), the night before All Hallows’ Day (All Saints’ Day). Many of us will carve out and light up pumpkins to welcome our visitors, and some of us will even decorate our yards with corn stalks, black cats, witches, and tombstones. It’s believed that this rather strange, unusual celebration has its roots in the Celtic festival of Samhein, which translates as “summer’s end,” a harvest festival; it celebrated the end of the “lighter half” of the year and the beginning of the “darker half” and was sometimes referred to as the “Celtic New Year.” The Celts thought the division between the world of the living and the Otherworld was blurred at this time, so the souls of the dead might be wandering about on this particular night; therefore, it was customary to build bonfires and light lanterns to ward off these spirits, and children wore costumes to blend in with them. This festival was particularly popular in Ireland and Scotland, and costumed children began going from door to door by the nineteenth century. They were given offerings of food, after all, it’s based on a harvest festival, for this served to ward off any potential spirits that might lurk among these visitors. These costumed children often carried a traditional lantern (“samhnag”), with a face carved in it to ward off evil spirits; these lanterns were made of a turnip, with a candle placed in the hollowed out inside. When many Scottish and Irish immigrants came to North America in the nineteenth century, Hallowe’en became very popular here, too; however, the turnip was replaced by the pumpkin, perhaps because they were larger and easier to carve, and plentiful. The earliest known reference to going door to door and asking for treats in our part of the world was in 1911, when a newspaper in nearby Kingston reported that it was normal for the smaller children to go street “guising” or dressing up in disguise, on Hallowe’en between 6 and 7 p.m., visiting shops and neighbours, and receiving nuts and candies. Hallowe’en has now become a giant commercial success in North America. I recently read that it generates sales of over 2 billion dollars, trailing only Christmas, with more candy sold than on Valentine’s Day and more parties held than on New Year’s Eve! Other parts of the world don’t necessarily celebrate this event with quite the same exuberance, but many places do acknowledge it in some special way. For example, in Austria, some people leave bread, water and a lit lamp on the table before retiring on Hallowe’en night, to welcome the dead souls back to earth. In Germany, knives are traditionally put away on Hallowe’en night because people don’t want to risk harm

Many costumed visitors are seen at Hallowe’en.

befalling the returning spirits. In Poland, doors and windows are left open to welcome the spirits, the visiting souls. In the Philippines and in Belgium, the custom is to light candles in memory of dead relatives. In Czechoslovakia, chairs are placed by the fireside: one chair for each living family member and one for each family member’s spirit. In China, the Hallowe’en festival is known as “Teng Chieh.” Food and water are placed in front of photographs of family members who have departed, and lanterns are lit in order to light the paths of the spirits as they travel the earth on this night. The Japanese celebrate the “Obon Festival” (also known as “Matsuri” or “Urabon”); it’s similar in that it’s dedicated to the spirits of ancestors; it’s a celebration of the memory of the dead. Special foods are prepared, and bright red lanterns

are set afloat; candles are lit and placed into lanterns which are then set afloat on rivers and seas to light the way for the dead souls returning to Earth. In much of Central and South America, children pay a visit to their neighbours on Hallowe’en and request candy by yelling “Dulce o Truco” (“Sweet or Trick”). In Brazil, the chant is “Travessuras ou gostosuras.” The Spanish name for Hallowe’en is “Noche de Brujas” or “Night of the Witches.” In Spain, a pastry named “Bones of the Holy” (shaped like skulls) is eaten on this particular day; it contains anise

seed and is covered in an orange glaze. Families then go to the cemetery to visit deceased family members, keeping vigil throughout the night, and the next day is spent cleaning the family burial plots. Hallowe’en in Romania is celebrated around the myth of Dracula, particularly in Transylvania, so you’ll find many vampire parties here. The area was also the site of many witch trials, and these are re-enacted by actors on this night. Indeed, October’s ending is often celebrated/acknowledged throughout this world, but in different ways.

MP tells critics of trade deal to discard “mantle of negativity”

By John Campbell

News - Northumberland - The Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) between Canada and the European Union (EU) is “good for Canada for a whole whack of reasons,” says the MP for NorthumberlandQuinte West. But its critics need to take off “the mantle of negativity” in order to see the good that will come in gaining greater access to a market of 500 million people that generates about $17 trillion in economic activity, Rick Norlock said. He cited a joint CanadaEU study that concluded the trade agreement “could bring a 20 per cent boost in bilateral trade and a $12 billion annual increase to Canada’s economy … [the] equivalent of adding $1,000 to the average Canadian family’s income or almost 80,000 new jobs to the Canadian economy.” When the agreement in principle comes into force within the next two years among its many provisions are the elimination of tariffs on Canadian goods entering the EU market, and approval to ship an additional 50,000 tonnes of beef a year, worth about $600 million, and an extra 80,000 tonnes of pork, worth roughly $400 million. CETA will also allow for an unlimited amount of Canadian cheese to be exported to the EU while opening up the Canadian market to European cheeses by an additional four cent annually, to 30,000 tonnes, more than double what is currently allowed. Ron Versteeg, vice president of the Dairy Farmers of Canada, told CBC News it is “a bit discouraging to see something that we’ve put a lot of blood, sweat, and tears into developing … sort of eroded and given away to the Europeans.” But the impact on domestic cheese makers “will be nullified” by the projected growth in cheese consumption in Canada, Norlock said, so the effect “will basically be neutral.” He said the reaction of dairy farmers has been

“doom and gloom” in fearing the agreement could mark “the beginning of the slippery slope” leading to the end of supply management that controls the production of milk and sets prices. But they “will lose in the court of public opinion when people know the facts about this,” he said. The “negative part” is having “a bit more cheese” allowed into Canada,” but on the positive side, “we can ship as much cheese as we want to 500 million people who like cheese.” The federal government has also said it will compensate milk producers “if it can be proven” the trade agreement has “adversely affected them,” Norlock said. Warkworth-area dairy farmer Sid Atkinson, a member of the board of directors for the Dairy Farmers of Ontario, said CETA’s provisions affecting his industry came “as “a shock for sure, but the reality is trade is necessary for this country and … to stand in the way of a country’s prosperity is a losing game; dairy farmers realize that.” If the trade deal is “going to do as much for the country as they say it is, everybody’s going to be happy.” Atkinson said Canadian dairy farmers can “compete quite handily” with their European counterparts, but “we get our revenue from the consumers” alone whereas dairy farmers overseas have their incomes “topped up with subsidies [that] are not coupled to production. “It just puts us at a competitive disadvantage when we’re not getting any subsidies for our production,” Atkinson said. “I personally prefer getting our revenue from the market; it’s more stable that way. There’s no sense asking the consumer to pay you twice,” at the cash register and then through taxes, he said. “We can compete with almost anyone in the world” but going up against the treasuries of other countries “adds a new layer of stress to it,” Atkinson said. “The fact the

government has said we will watch out for you and compensate you for losses … is a bit of relief.” Jack Oliver, general manager of Empire Cheese outside Campbell-

ford, isn’t worried about more competition from across the ocean. “I don’t think it will hurt Empire Cheese too much,” he said, because of the quality of product the farmer

co-operative produces, and the fact that a strong part of its business is from the sale of curds, which “definitely won’t be coming over.” Empire also has “a pretty faith-

ful clientele,” said Oliver, who has received phone calls from people saying “you don’t need to worry … we’re going to continue to buy your cheese.”

Committee hopeful of beer fest return

See it Feel it

By Richard Turtle

LIVE it. Yardmen Arena • Puck Drops 7:05PM

News - Stirling - Municipal officials are optimistic the Hastings County Beer Festival will return to the township next year following a meeting earlier this week marking the deadline for proposals to organize and run the event. Members of the Stirling-Rawdon Economic Development Committee met Monday night, with the future of the annual festival being the primary agenda item. After operating the event in October for its first two years, the original organizers cancelled plans for this year despite attracting significant crowds in the past. But there have been several supporters, including members of the Economic Development Committee, who have been

working toward its return. Agreeing it is a positive attraction for the area, committee members listened to three potential candidates at Monday night’s meeting and also received written submissions from others. In the end, the committee opted to recommend that Philip Dangerfield be considered as their first choice, having a knowledge of the area and significant experience that includes producing the National Capital Craft Beer Festival in Ottawa , now in the planning stages for its third year of operation. Committee member and Councillor Bob Mullin says both the number and the quality of submissions were impressive, particularly given the short timeframe. “I’m really pleased with the level of interest we’re getting with this,” he noted, with his colleagues agreeing there is plenty of reason for optimism. Noted Dangerfield in his proposal, “Craft beer is a fantastic platform to showcase local and regional artisans, talent and business and is a key part of the formula that we use to produce our festivals. Previous Hastings County Beer Festivals have featured craft beers and ciders for sampling, as well as food and live entertainment and submitted proposals received by the committee suggested a similar format with Farmtown Park the preferred location. Committee members, including Farmtown Park board member Ron Reid, also discussed pricing as well potential dates and the availability of the museum but ultimately agreed those decisions would be determined in large part by the organizers.

News - Campbellford â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m living in the 21st century so I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be St. Brigid of Kildare but we want to deliver the spirit of who she was,â&#x20AC;? said Angelica Ottewill. A talented harpist who combines trobairitz music and storytelling as a modern day expression of medieval times, she will be performing the first of a new series called Daring Daughters of the Faith at St. Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s United Church, Campbellford, in November. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a fund raiser for the church. Half the proceeds go to the church and half to myself and my music partner VĂŠronique Kwakkernaat, a flutist from Brighton. Lianne Harris of Toronto does the lyrics and prose and receives royalties. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The new series is a musical odyssey of early sainted women,â&#x20AC;? said Ottewill. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are a lot of wonderful stories and ballads from the medieval times. It was a very romantic period â&#x20AC;Ś weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re talking King Arthur and the crusades. I have several stories I tell with harp accompaniment,â&#x20AC;? she added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Trobairitz is a name they gave to women troubadours around the 12th century,â&#x20AC;? she explained. Ottewill became passionate about the harp three decades ago and mastered the lever harp. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a very expressive instrument. The first time I made a sound with this harp it was like the sound went right through me to my soul and I thought I have to have one of these. It was a crystallizing moment,â&#x20AC;? said Ottewill. That is when this classi-

cally trained music singer, who was a teacher for 32 years, decided to learn to play. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Harps are difficult to play. It can take months for me to be comfortable with a piece,â&#x20AC;? she commented. As past president of the Ontario Folk Harp Society, Ottewill has presented concerts and workshops throughout Ontario. Her performances include lively participatory stories, humorous tales and exciting romantic epics. Stories range from medieval to international folk tales, and the music from Celtic to contemporary. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The performance about St. Brigid is about one hour 15 minutes. I tell the story of her life interspersed with traditional Celtic music and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve included some contemporary sacred music,â&#x20AC;? said Ottewill. The performers will be dressed in Medieval costumes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;St. Brigid was made a saint before the official canonization process ever took place,â&#x20AC;? she noted. Born around 450 into a Druid family she decided to become a Christian at an early age, eventually taking vows as a nun. Together with a group of other women, she established a nunnery at Kildare. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She was educated as a Druid priestess,â&#x20AC;? said Ottewill. She has already taken her performance to Belleville and Peterborough.

CMH Auxiliaryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fundraising Christmas bazaar News - Campbellford - Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s that time of year again, time for the Campbellford Memorial Hospital Auxiliaryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Christmas Bazaar. Auxiliary President Norah McGowan and Carol Mitchell are co-convenors this year. The luncheon will still be $6.  â&#x20AC;&#x153;We wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be having hot foods this year, but our Unique Boutique will be returning,â&#x20AC;? noted Judy McLean, press and publicity co-ordinator. The Boutique was a sell-out last year and featured once loved and well cared for items and accessories, purses, belts, shoes.  The popular Book Barn will also be returning.  â&#x20AC;&#x153;People missed the Book Barn last year,â&#x20AC;? explained McLean. John Marvin, who is in charge of this part of the bazaar, is putting the authors in alphabetical order so that it will be easier for shoppers to find an author that they enjoy.  There will, of course, be plenty of

homemade ware: baked goods and knitted and hand-sewn items. Christmas items from the Auxiliary Gift Shop will be featured as well.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re hoping to have an overflowing bake table too,â&#x20AC;? said McLean. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our bazaar is always a great opportunity to get out, get a head start on Christmas, buy your baking [and go home and throw flour on your face to prove that you slaved over the oven making it] sit and have lunch, run into friends, do some Christmas shopping while supporting your local hospital,â&#x20AC;? she said enthusiastically. Look for posters around town promoting the fund-raising bazaar which takes place November 9 from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m.  Parking will be in the lot behind St. Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Church on Bridge Street. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is an event going on at the Legion next door and so people are being asked not to use their parking,â&#x20AC;? said McLean.

Card of Thanks

While a patient at Kingston General Hospital I had time to think about how truly thankful I am for all those people who were so supportive, loved and cared for me. First of all to my family for the many hours spent by my side my sincere thanks. To Dr. Michael Leveridge and his associates, thank you. For all the cards, phone calls, flowers, fruit baskets, visits and inquires I am most grateful. Each one provided a special lift. Most importantly to all those who have been praying for me throughout this ordeal just know that your prayers have been answered and I am on the road to recovery. May God richly bless you.

Thank You, HTM Insurance I want to thank the directors of HTM Insurance for the gifts I received as I retire. For over 20 years I have been proud to represent HTM Insurance as a director. My wife Helen & I have met a great group of people when we travelled to insurance functions across Canada/USA. I also met a lot of genuine policy holders when I was adjusting claims. I congratulate my successor Nancy Brown and wish her well. Thanks for the memories. Gene Brahancy

A championship pedigree gets dogs into the show By Steve Jessel

News - Belleville - Puppy treats and squeaky toys were in high demand at the Quinte Sports and Wellness Centre this past weekend for the Belleville and District Kennel Club’s Championship Shows, and for show chairperson Gail Giles, there’s one thing that keeps her coming back for more. “We love our dogs,” she said with a smile. “My husband calls it the most expensive hobby in the world.” More than 800 dogs of every breed, shape colour and size packed themselves into the Yardmen Arena over three days of competition from October 25 to 27, all with their eyes set on one prize: best in show. However, to reach that lofty goal, canine competitors must prove themselves as the best of their breed in the eyes of the judges, who grade the animals based on exacting written standards for each breed of dog. “Each dog has a standard that they have to conform to, and they’re all different,” said Michael Gelinas, a veteran judge of 20 years. “Certain breeds [interest people] and certain dogs [don’t] but you still have to judge the dog against their conformations.” The canine competition is far from the only attraction at the annual show, as for many long-time competitors and breeders it becomes a chance to reconnect with old friends. Participants travel from across Canada and even the U.S. to attend the championship, and for local resident Breezy Powell it’s hard to stay away. “We enjoy seeing friends and the Dogs are each graded on specific breed standards before moving on to social aspect, along with showing nice group competition. Here, Jan Cunningham leads Liam, a soft-coated dogs … the competition is fun,” she said. Wheaton Terrier through the judging area.

Powell said she’s not as active on the competition circuit as she used to be, but living in nearby Shannonville the Belleville show is practically “in her backyard.” Powell said she showed three dogs during the Saturday competition, and explained a bit of the process that goes into preparing a dog for show. “When you’re not showing, you do a lot of physical conditioning,” she said. “They have to be athletic, they have to be in good health, good body weight, and they have to have a

lot of socialization and a good temperament.” Temperament is the first thing Giles, a breeder herself, said she looks for in a new litter of animals. After genetic testing to make the sure the animal is sound and in good health, dogs can expect a veritable whirlwind of training and socialization in preparation for their big day under the lights. “I don’t keep a dog unless I feel the temperament is good and strong,” Giles said. “Then I take it to dog shows, I take it

to handling classes, I take it to PetSmart, I take it all over the place.” While not every dog is able to win best in show, placing well during competition garners valuable points toward the overall rankings by the Canadian Kennel Club, which sanctions both the event and the local club. “The best in show is the epitome of it all, but you can certainly become a champion without ever getting a best in show,” Giles said.
