Campbellford food bank sees a slight drop in the number of visits JOHN CAMPBELL

Campbellford - The number of visits clients made to the Campbellford and Warkworth Fare Share Food Bank went down slightly between Nov. 1, 2015 and Oct. 31, 2016. "It seems to be against the trend" reported by food banks across Canada, and it's the first time there's been a decline in numbers at Fare Share since he's

been the treasurer for more than a decade, Bruce Dunk said. To have that happened after what has been a "steady incline" in usage was "strange," he admitted. "I have no idea (why it happened)." The figures show there were 2,872 visits, compared to 3,004 documented a year earlier. Fare Share also recorded a small surplus for the second year


in a row, $5,966. "It just means next year we're going to be able to provide a little bit more for our clients," Dunk said. "I'm just overwhelmed by the amount of donations that we received from the community." Income totalled $30,194 while expenses added up to $24,227.

Long-time conservative Daryl Kramp wins nomination BY SUE DICKENS

Tweed – Telling delegates “real work will be needed to bring Ontario back from the brink,” long-time Tory Daryl Kramp is the newly elected Progressive Conservative candidate, the first, for the riding of Hastings Lennox and Addington. “I’m humbled and appreciative of the overwhelming support today. I recognize the enormous responsibility and challenges that lay ahead,” he said following his win. It was standing room only at the nomination convention held on Saturday, as three candidates vied for the chance to lead the Tories into the next provincial election in 2018. The day-long event saw 700 of the 1,000 Tory members drive the distance, quite literally, in what is a geographically large riding, to cast their vote. Two other nominees, Tracy McGibbon and John O’Donnell, both from the northern part of the riding, put forward their platform as they made their bids to be elected. Local riding officials refused to disclose vote counts for any of the candidates nor was it revealed how many ballots it took to elect Kramp as the candidate. One riding official said all candidates agreed to the nondisclosure so “we have a commitment by nominees on disclosure.” Kramp, who lost his seat to Liberal MP Mike Bossio in the 2015 election, joined the other candidates when he said he is returning with a goal of

helping the Tories take down the current provincial government led by Premier Kathleen Wynne. “Clearly, we’re in trouble . . . We see a government favour cities over farmers, foresters and fishers. We see tourism operators coping with lost business, lost jobs, and lost futures due to government policies,” said Kramp to delegates. Kramp’s concerns resonated with delegates as he noted problems such as “ridiculous rates for power, the need for the Marmora pump-storage project and other innovative local projects to cut power costs…for natural gas pipelines to serve our towns and villages… to protect energy-intensive industries with thousands of jobs now at risk in Strathcona, Napanee and Belleville.” “Ontario deserves better and I’m looking forward to making a real difference for the people of Hastings Lennox and Addington and our province. I’m encouraged by the diversity of support and the energy generated by today’s nomination. The work and preparation for the next election starts today, and I’m determined to bring responsible and accountable government back to Ontario,” he concluded. Nick Drakich, the riding president, said the next steps will be, “to involve the people of the constituency in developing the policy that needs to be brought forward for the next election.” Metroland Media Classifieds

Santa dazzles Havelock BY BILL FREEMAN

Daton Deshane, centre, joins Rilen Deshane and Aislin Deshane in the Trillium Catering float at the Havelock Santa Claus parade on Nov. 19. Bill Freeman/Metroland

Havelock – Santa Claus had an umbrella tucked beside him in his sleigh as he touched down in Havelock Nov. 19 for a festive if drizzly parade. In contrast to the past two years when big chill temperatures accompanied the arrival of the North Pole’s bearded ambassador, 2016 will be remembered for mild and wet weather which did nothing to dampen the spirits of spectators lining the route through downtown Havelock. The parade included a pipe band, colourfully lit floats, cadets and a troop of Smitty’s Christmas Wish elves who escorted Santa Claus through town while accepting donations for this year’s campaign.

Madoc - Reaching out to the public for their second largest fundraiser, the Anchor of Hope's (AOH) third annual Season of Hope vendor market was even more successful than last year. "Although we had a lot of support, our shopper traffic was down this year but interestingly we still raised about $500 more than last year's event by having more vendors this year than in past years," said Tara Flagler, executive director. The locally organized and locally funded non-profit Christian agency raised just over $3,600 in support of the Centre through vendor booth rentals, shopper admission, raffle table donations, and their café. "We also received several very useful baby care donations to give out to our clients," Flagler commented. There were 53 vendors in the main gym and the cafeteria at Centre Hastings Secondary School (CHSS) the day of the event, selling everything from homemade jams, knitted and sewn items, to artfully decorated chalkboards, jewellery, makeup, clothing, shoes, cards, food, books . . . the list was extensive. "You could literally do all your Christ-

mas shopping in one place. It was so much fun and the vendors were so good to contribute to our raffle table to raise even more funds for the Centre," Flagler noted. "We had an awesome team of volunteers running the welcome desk, giving out swag bags, helping in the cafe serving food and delivering refreshments to the vendors and shoppers." To make the event even more fun the first 100 shoppers through the doors received swag bags and they were all handed out within the first 45 minutes of being open. "You had to be there early," said Flagler with a grin. Their event was held in conjunction with the Heart of Hastings Christmas Tour, a very popular venue. The AOH covers an area half way to Bancroft and over to Kaladar on Highway Seven, including Madoc, Marmora, Tweed and Stirling. "Our stats show more than 200 client visits in a year," said Flagler. The centre is open Tuesdays to Thursdays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. "We do hope that next year's shoppers increase so that our vendors continue to mark this event as the best in the area," Flagler concluded.

After Aleppo: A Kind of Peace? Eastern Aleppo, the rebel-held half of what was once Syria’s biggest city, is falling. Once the resistance there collapses, things may move very fast in Syria, and the biggest question will be: Gwynne Dyer do the outside powers that have intervened in the war accept Bashar al-Assad’s victory, or do they keep the war going? Even one year ago, it seemed completely unrealistic to talk about an Assad victory. The Syrian government’s army was decimated, demoralised and on the verge of collapse: every time the rebels attacked, it retreated. There was even a serious possibility that Islamic State and the Nusra Front, the extreme Islamist groups that dominated the rebel forces, would sweep to victory in all of Syria. But then, just fourteen months ago, the Russian air force was sent in to save Assad’s army from defeat. It did more than that. It enabled the Syrian army, with help on the ground from Shia militias recruited from Lebanon, Afghanistan and Iraq and mostly trained and commanded by Iranian officers, to go onto the offensive. Assad’s forces took back the historic city of Palmyra. They eliminated the last rebel-held foothold in the city of Homs. And last summer they began to cut eastern Aleppo’s remaining links with the outside world. A rebel counter-offensive in August briefly opened a new corridor into eastern Aleppo, but government troops retook the lost territory and resumed the siege in September. For almost two months now almost nothing has moved into or out of the besieged half of the city, and both food and ammunition are running short inside. So the resistance is starting to collapse. The Hanano district fell on Saturday, and Jabal Badro fell on Sunday. The capture of Sakhour on Monday has cut the rebel-held part of Aleppo in two, and the remaining bits north of the cut will quickly be pinched out by the Syrian government’s troops. The southeastern part of the city may stay in rebel hands a while longer, but military collapses of this sort are infectious. It is now likely that Bashar al-Assad will control all of Aleppo before the end of the year, and possibly much sooner.

At that point he would control all of Syria’s major cities, at least three-quarters of the population that has not fled abroad, and all of the country’s surviving industry. He would be in a position to offer an amnesty to all the rebels except the extreme Islamists of Islamic State and the Nusra Front, and a lot of the less fanatical Syrian rebels would be tempted to accept it. For the many foreign powers that are involved in the Syrian civil war, it would then come down to a straight choice: Assad’s cruel but conventional regime or the Islamist crazies. Even Turkey and Saudi Arabia, however much their leaders may loathe Assad, could not openly put their armies at the service of the Islamists. (They used to send them arms and money, but even that has stopped now.) And for a newly installed President Donald Trump, it would become a lot simpler to “make a deal” with Russia’s President Vladimir Putin to finish the job of crushing Islamic State and the Nusra Front together. Would the Russians and the Americans then hand over all the recaptured territory to Assad’s regime? Many people in Washington would rather hang onto it temporarily in order to blackmail Syria’s ruling Baath Party into replacing Assad with somebody a bit less tainted, but a deal between Putin and Trump would certainly preclude that sort of games-playing. How could Trump reconcile such a deal with Russia with his declared intention to cancel the agreement the United States signed last March to curb Iran’s nuclear weapons ambitions? Iran is Russia’s closest ally in the Middle East, and if Trump broke that agreement he would be reopening a US military confrontation with Iran. Since this question may not even have crossed Mr Trump’s mind yet, it would be pointless for us to speculate on which way he might jump three months from now. It’s equally pointless to wonder what kind of deal the Syrian Kurds will end up with. Turkey will want to ensure that they have no autonomous government of their own and are thoroughly subjugated by Assad’s regime. The United States, on the other hand, owes them a debt of honour for carrying the main burden of fighting Islamic State on the ground – but the Kurds are used to being betrayed. All we can say with some confidence at the moment is that it looks like Assad has won his six-year war to stay in power.

Déjà vu for Tories in choosing Kramp Editorial by Chris Malette Conservatives in the central and northern reaches of Hastings County have decided to ride a familiar war horse into battle against the Wynne Liberals in the next provincial election and few should be surprised. Daryl Kramp secured his party’s nomination as the candidate for the newly-minted HastingsLennox and Addington riding. And the announcement was quickly followed by a congratulatory message from a fellow former federal Tory by the name of Patrick Brown. “I had the great honour of working alongside Daryl in Ottawa, and saw first-hand his hardwork and dedication to his constituents,” said provincial PC party leader Brown in a release Saturday evening. “Daryl will be a very strong communicator for the Ontario PC Party’s message of change for a better Ontario with the voters in Hastings-Lennox and Addington. I am very excited to have his experience on our team.” To get the candidacy nod, Kramp wasn’t given a cakewalk, as many may have expected, owing to his longevity as a federal MP and his vast campaign experience among fellow Conservatives in the riding. To get the win, he needed to best Bancroft city councilor Tracy McGibbon and John O’Donnell, the former chief of Hastings-Quinte Paramedic Services. Both are untested in the political arena at the federal or provincial level but either would have been able candidates in Kramp’s stead. There was reported broad support in the Bancroft area for McGibbon and O’Donnell is a personable, whipsmart newcomer to politics in these parts. Kramp, a former OPP officer, international hockey promoter and restaurant owner who, a decade ago, accepted a sizeable settlement from the McGuinty provincial government to shutter and demolish his Moira Lake-side Two Loons restaurant to make way for a diversion and straightening of Highway 62 – work that was never carried out for a variety of land-use reasons, according to transportation ministry officials. He’s not the only Tory veteran who has so far decided to try his hand at provincial politics, utilizing a campaign machinery team that boosted him to Ottawa on three occasions. Kramp joins former colleague Paul Calandra on the Ontario Progressive Conservative ticket. Calandra, parliamentary secretary to former prime minister Stephen Harper, won the party’s nomination for Markham-Stouffville. Former Finance Minister Joe Oliver and exConservative MPs Bob Dechert and Susan Truppe also have announced their intentions to seek nominations to run for the Ontario PCs in 2018.

Kramp, at 69, is a politician who’s bucking a trend among those entering the political arena. While many argue “60 is the new 40” in terms of older, white male politicians entering politics, there are few of Kramp’s vintage in the field of former federal Tories taking a run at Queen’s Park. Pushing 70, Kramp is certainly not letting age stop him, despite claims after he lost to Bossio that he was looking forward to easing into a quieter lifestyle to enjoy his grandchildren and family life. Consider, too, Kramp will run in the next election with a Tory slate that includes 19-year-old home-schooled teen Sam Oosterhoff, a political-science major at Brock University, who stormed to victory in a by-election in Niagara West-Glanbrook. Strange bedfellows, indeed. Kramp will turn 70 next year and will be 71 when the actual election is held in 2018. If he is elected and serves the whole term, Kramp will be 75 when completing that term. Will it then be time to hand off the baton to other members of the Kramp family with political aspirations, hoping to capitalize on the familiar name in the northern and central reaches of Hastings County? Perhaps. Or, perhaps, the energetic septuagenarian will run on, like a 6’5” Energizer Bunny. But, we doubt that will be the case. This looks to be the last true kick at the can for this former softball pitcher once feared for his fierce determination on the mound, but now given to humblepie bromides when asked how he feels about getting a nomination or being an elected official. Kramp lost two federal election bids before his first victory in 2004. In the 1997 election, he ran as a Progressive Conservative in the riding of Hastings—Frontenac—Lennox and Addington, finishing second against Liberal Larry McCormick. He ran in the same riding for the 2000 election, and this time finished third against McCormick and Canadian Alliance candidate Sean McAdam. In the 2004 election, Kramp ran as a Conservative in Prince Edward—Hastings, and narrowly defeated Liberal Bruce Knutson. The seat was previously held by Liberal cabinet minister Lyle Vanclief, who was not seeking re-election. He was re-elected in 2006 by a much larger margin. Kramp Saturday told Starboard Communications’ inQuinte, “You have to earn that support and that respect by demonstrating that you have the capacity, the capability, the energy and quite frankly that you’re doing it for the right reason.” So it is congratulations, then, for Kramp and also here’s hoping that he has indeed entered the race “for the right reason.”

Public reacts to concept plans for Campbellford's town square BY JOHN CAMPBELL

Campbellford - It's back to the drawing board, which is exactly what landscape architect Brian Basterfield had in mind when he recently presented two concept plans for a town square at the corner of Front and Bridge streets. The purpose of the meeting was to find out from attendees which of the two proposals they preferred and what changes they wished to see before he prepared tender-ready detailed design and construction drawings. The two concepts, born out of suggestions made at the first public meeting held in September,

were "different in form but more or less identical in terms of features," he said. "It's an absolutely fantastic location" in the centre of the town but "generally an uninviting space" with exposed sides of buildings and gravel pathways that present accessibility problems. "We think it could be a more desirable place," Basterfield said. Studies have shown that a green space with a tree canopy "calms people" and when they feel relaxed and comfortable, "they open their wallets more, it becomes an Concept one. economic driver for the downtown," he said. Both concepts propose screenPhoto submitted ing the walls with trees and shrubs, permanently mounting tables and chairs in front of the mass plantings, using the existing limestone blocks as "seat walls," leaving a "flexible" open space in the middle where events can be held and temporary structures erected, and installing a steel town square sign of historic significance that includes interpretive or way-finding panels, as well as information about community events. The first concept envisions a square design while the second is in the form of a circle with "a little more contemporary spin" to

it, Basterfield said. In each case, there is a symbolic river with a crossing incorporated into the paving. Trent Hills community development officer Kira Mees said the work needs to be done by Canada Day next year in order to qualify for the $50,000 in Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program funding. Rose-Marie Kerr, whose bookstore sits across from the site, said the corner is "hit with vandalism regularly" and asked if anything could be done "to help the longevity and retain the beauty" of the town square after it's developed. Basterfield said there is "vandal

resistant spray," that can be applied to concrete and stone "that makes it easier to clean off the tags" left by graffiti artists. "I'd be surprised if you have real issues with problems on this corner because it is such a busy corner," he said, although anything "can happen anywhere in the town in middle of the night." One attendee complained she was "very disappointed" with the concepts, saying she didn't "see anything that stands out" that would differentiate Campbellford's town square from other communities'. Another woman called for more diversity in the plant material and said she preferred "something simpler" in the design, with all its chairs, so it doesn't appear "cluttered." Attendees were given a form to fill out asking for their input and preference. Basterfield said afterwards he will tally up the responses from the approximately 20 people who attended and then work on drawings based on the option favoured by the majority. His take on the "pulse of the room" was that Concept 2 "was the favourable one because it had more open space to it," he said.

Visual impairment won’t hold back local go-getter BY BRETT MANN

Tweed- Despite serious and progressive visual limitations, Tweed resident Melanie Spratt continues to function successfully as a counsellor/ therapist with Children’s Mental Health Services in Trenton and as a homemaker. The mother of two holds a Bachelor of Science degree as well as being certified in Early Childhood Education and Developmental Service Work. She is also a registered psychotherapist. In her professional life Spratt deals with “referrals from CAS, broken homes, divorce, drugs, issues at school, anxieties, anything and everything.” Spratt has been diagnosed with a form of macular degeneration, which affects younger people. Vision losses run in her family. “I wasn’t born with it, but my biological father is legally blind, as well as his mother. My brother who is three years older than me was diagnosed as legally blind when he was 30 I believe. What I have is ‘vitelliform macular dystrophy.’” The condition is not curable at present. “The only thing you can do is try and slow the progression of it. They’ve been watching me for about 10 years. I did show some signs of it in my macula. Then about a year ago it got worse, it started to progress, and they sent me to a specialist at Hotel Dieu (hospital) in Kingston.” She retains enough residual vision to be able to drive her car, but “that’s my fear, that the next thing is they will take my license away.” Spratt’s current position requires the ability to “sometimes” drive a vehicle. “I worry about the kids, the hockey, the appointments here, the appointments there – somebody has to take them. It’s difficult sometimes

in stores, trying to read the labels, but I tend to wear my sunglasses a lot in stores. I manage.” With assistive technological aids Spratt has been able to adapt in the workplace. “It was almost agonizing to be on a computer.” A referral to CNIB led to tools like yellow glasses (for white paper), a magnifying bar and a natural light desk lamp. A further aid was a piece of computer software called Zoom-tech, which provides text to speech conversion and changes text to white on a black background. “My employer paid for all of that. It helped, but I still do have issues,” says Spratt. “We have a lot of paperwork requirements.” Her husband Charles also works in Trenton. Favourite activities like reading and movie watching are becoming more difficult for Spratt, but she says, “I mostly do whatever the kids want to do.” She is kept busy with her dogs Max and Jake. She reports having felt self-conscious about her visual limitations. “I’ve never talked about it before, even though I’ve been struggling. Let’s Melanie Spratt, a Tweed mother of two and practicing psychotherapist at just say I’ve been kind of faking it,” she says with home with her Golden Lab Max. a laugh. “Now that I have the accommodations at Brett Mann/Metroland work, people know about it, but it’s still kind of a touchy subject for me. I keep wondering what’s going to happen.”

Public intoxication, distracted driver charges Madoc - On Nov. 25 just after midnight members of Central Hastings OPP received a complaint of an intoxicated man being rowdy and bothering other passengers on a Greyhound bus at Highway # 7 in the Municipality of Centre Hastings. Officers removed the 22-year-old Barrie man from the bus and subsequently charged him with Being Intoxicated in a Public Place. Also on Nov. 25 at 9:50 a.m. a member of Central Hastings OPP stopped a tanker truck travelling on Highway # 62 near Ivanhoe in the Municipality of Centre Hastings after the driver was observed talking on a cell phone. The 43-year-old male driver of Shannonville was charged with Drive With Handheld Communication Device under the Highway Traffic Act. This offence carries a fine of $490 and three demerit points. Central Hastings OPP encourages drivers to focus on the important and complex task of driving and to use any of these tips to avoid driving distracted: Turn off your phone or switch it to silent mode before you get in the car Put it in the glove compartment (lock it, if you have to) or in a bag on the back seat Before you leave the house, record an outgoing message that tells callers you’re driving and you’ll get back to them when you’re off the road Some apps can block incoming calls and texts, or send automatic replies to people trying to call or text you Ask a passenger to take a call or respond to a text for you If you must respond, or have to make a call or send a text, carefully pull over to a safe area. Silence notifications that tempt you to check your phone.

HBM's Queen’s Park protest over long term care set for Dec. 7 BY BILL FREEMAN

Havelock - Protest buses will rumble to Queen's Park Dec. 7 as Havelock-Belmont-Methuen steps up its fight to bring a 128 bed long term care home to the community. As reported earlier, HBM council has decided to take its battle directly to Toronto after learning the province is not currently issuing licenses for the development of new LTC beds but will focus instead on redeveloping 35,000 older beds over the next ten to 15 years. HBM has been ready since 2011 to bring a home to a fully serviced 18 acre site just south of Havelock. The facility could also include specialized dementia care, a satellite dialysis unit, convalescent care as well as respite and short stay interim bed care. "We are very serious about this and want to send a clear message that seniors do count," HBM Mayor Ron Gerow said during a press conference confirming the protest. The municipality has never asked for new bed licenses only those that have been previously allocated. That number is 99, says Gerow. "To say council is frustrated with this whole process is a huge understatement." Councillors have been to Toronto at least four times in the past

five years to talk to officials about their case. Premier Kathleen Wynne, a summer resident in HBM, has been invited to meet with council several times. "(She's) never stuck her nose in," said Councillor Barry Pomeroy. "The (minister of health) has fluffed us off." They're hoping for some "face to face" time with Wynne and health minister Dr. Eric Hoskins. The LTC facility would also meet needs of residents in parts of Northumberland and Hastings Counties, they add. Forty-three per cent of HBM's population of 3,915 is over 60; currently there are 2,700 people Havelock-Belmont-Methuen resident Pat Patterson speaks during a meeting Nov. 21 to announced a bus protest trip on a waiting list for long term care in Peterbor- to Queen’s Park on Dec. 7 to advocate for a long term care home in Havelock.

Next Gen Men insists male youth need ‘new paths to manhood’ largely through after-school programs. “It’s about inspiring men to think about who we can be and the role we can play in our communities and how we create these ideas of what a man is or isn’t,” Perera said. Too many people across the world are raising boys to be aggressive and violent, and to not show empathy, love, or emotional intelligence, Perera said. “That leaves us walking around like half-beings.” It’s time to draw new paths to manhood, to have conversations about what we can do to help young men and boys begin unlearning some of these harmful, violent ideas they’ve grown up with, and learning healthy ideas about what they can be as men, Perera said He told club members they have “an opportunity to influence in a positive way” male youths as they mature. “Sometimes it’s about what we say,” Perera said, but “really it’s about what we do” that makes an VETERINARY SERVICE impact.

Warkworth – Too often the expectation for young boys growing up is that they must climb the ladder of manhood to be tough and strong, and “anything less than that is considered, soft ... weak ... (and) feminine,” a facilitator with Next Gen Men told members of the Warkworth Service Club recently. “We create this impossible idea of manhood, and spend the rest of our lives trying to achieve it while devaluing anything that is not that, including the women and girls in our lives,” Jeff Perera said.

CDHS Spirit Week advocates for respect and inclusion BY JOHN CAMPBELL

Campbellford – It was Spirit Week at Campbellford District High School Nov. 21-24, with a different activity planned each day by the school’s Gay Straight Alliance. “This week is all about bullying awareness and prevention so we tried to pick different groups that we felt had been bullied in the past,” said student success teacher Julie Brahaney, a faculty member who works with the alliance. Tuesday, for example, was Rainbow Day in support of LGBTQ communities in the school and Trent Hills. The Gay Straight Alliance (GSA), with about 20 members, meets weekly to discuss issues of concern to its members. “We want to be all-inclusive,” Brahaney said. “We talk about a safe school” and making everyone at CDHS feel welcome.” One student, who was bullied in elementary school, said, “it’s really important (to give) kids a safe space to be themselves and to not feel judged for being who they are. I feel

The regional board of education has a mandate to operate the school system in the best interests of taxpayers, but Hastings County Council thinks it should also have a say – at least when it comes to closing schools. Reports that the board of education is considering closing several schools throughout its two-county region inspired a lively debate in county council. Members recalled other school closures in some of their areas and the impact on their communities where schools are also used for social and community events. Some councillors could sympathize with the board having to make the best of a bad situation when it comes to budgeting, but they also want input into the pressing need to close some schools and what options might be available. Their concern is not so much about education and its costs the welfare of communities they represent. Leading the concerns was CarloMayo Reeve Bonnie Adams. Noting that a meeting had been held in Belleville to discuss the board’s accommodation problems, “We did not receive any notice of it,” she told her fellow councillors, adding, “There are three schools in the northern region that could potentially be impacted by the board’s decisions.” There was some comfort from Marmora and Lake Mayor Terry Clemenson that it will take months

of consultation before final decisions are made, but others pressed for immediate action, to deal directly with the Minister of Education and also to arrange talks with the board. Mayor Jo-Anne Albert of Tweed said her town still has bitter memories of the closing of the high school there some years ago. “It does impact a community when you close a school,” she said. Warden Rick Phillips agreed that a letter be sent to the minister and also to arrange discussions with the board of education. Council also discussed a new policy announced by the provincial government to allow firefighters to be upgraded in their qualifications as paramedics. County CEO Jim Pine advised that the province’s paper on the issue has already raised alarm bells in the Association of Municipalities of Ontario. “This would potentially mean a significant increase in fire budgets, which are 100 per cent funded by municipal taxes,” he noted. The costs could arise either from training costs or increased pay to match new requirements or both. Reeve Tom Deline of Centre Hastings pointed out that his community already pays about $60,000 a year for fire training costs and that could rise dramatically. Pine acknowledged that in its position paper, the province spells out that rural municipalities could opt out, but “There are still many ques-

Put the cell phone down Madoc – Police warn a quick chat on a cell phone while driving has expensive consequences. On Nov. 25, 2016 at 9:50 a.m. a member of Central Hastings O.P.P stopped a tanker truck travelling on Highway 62 near Ivanhoe in Centre Hastings after the driver was observed talking on a cell phone. The 43 year old male driver of Shannonville was charged with Drive With Handheld Communication Device under the Highway Traffic Act. This offence carries a fine of $490 and three demerit points. Central Hastings OPP encourages drivers to focus on the important and complex task of driving and to use any of these tips to avoid driving distracted:

cord an outgoing message that tells callers you’re driving and you’ll get back to them when you’re off the road Some apps can block incoming calls and texts, or send automatic replies to people trying to call or text you Ask a passenger to take a call or respond to a text for you If you must respond, or have to make a call or send a text, carefully pull over to a safe area Silence notifications that tempt you to check your phone


Drunk on the bus Madoc – Provincial police had to pluck a drunken passenger from a bus here last Friday. On Nov. 25, just after midnight, members of Central Hastings OPP received a complaint of an intoxicated man being rowdy and bothering other passengers on a Greyhound bus at Highway 7 in the Municipality of Centre Hastings. Officers removed a 22 year old Barrie man from the bus and subsequently charged him with being intoxicated in public.

Civic Centre open house draws a crowd


Hastings – The Hastings Civic Centre is a happening place. The successors to the historic Hastings Town Hall held its second annual open house Nov. 25 with at least 13 community groups and agencies which use the facility setting up displays, making presentations and passing along information about what they offer. The Civic Centre opened in 1990, replacing the town hall, which was destroyed by a massive fire in 1989. Permanent tenants now include the Hastings Library, Ontario Early Years Centre and Community Care with groups as diverse as the Hastings Knitters, seniors, historical society, revitalization association, Salvation Army, Good Food Box, Haliburton, Kawartha Pine Ridge District Health Unit and Northumberland Community Legal Centre using the building. Programs like line dancing, yoga, belly dancing, collective kitchen, knitting, community kitchen, euchre and free community lunches

draw people to the civic centre. “We feel very fortunate to have a facility like this,” says Hastings Seniors secretary Alice Hall. The organization began its existence in the town hall in 1972 and moved into the civic centre when it opened. The Hastings Seniors now have approximately 100 members, 46 of them over 80 years old, says Hall. “We use the building to help promote seniors in Hastings,” adds Jim Laidman, a board member of the United Seniors of Ontario and field representative for Zone 42. “We’re very lucky to have this space,” said Sweetie Thall, leader of the Hastings Knitters for the past nine years. The 25 member group meets Thursdays at 1 p.m. and knits and crochets items for at least eight charities. “You name it we make it,” says Thall. “Communities are what they are because of the people who volunteer and get involved in all the organizations,” said Trent Hills DeputyMayor Bob Crate. “We appreciate everything they do.”

Rockin’ Boomer Bonspiel a first for New team records set during BYST Meet weekend Campbellford’s 50-plus curlers BY SUE DICKENS

Campbellford – Boomers rock and boomers curled at the Campbellford Curling club which introduced its first-time Rockin’ Boomer Bonspiel which was held Sat., Nov. 19. Any curler 50 and older was welcome to represent the baby boomer generation. The Rockin’ Boomer Bonspiel awarded cash prizes to the first, second and third team in each draw. The Martz rink was the winner of the first draw with Dave Martz, skip and Charlotte Martz, vice. Their front end was Elza, lead, and Kevin Morris, second, all the way from Cambridge. The second draw winner was a made-up team from Campbellford and Marmora and included skip Barry Brown of Campbellford; Murray Fischer, lead, Campbellford; Charles Exton, second, Campbellford; and Doug Brownson, vice, Marmora. Not only was it a cash spiel, but also teams could be made up of any configuration. There was a four-man team, a team of three women and a man, four women and of course, the traditional team of two men and two women. The

curling was very competitive and everyone was given a good game, according to organizers. The curlers were entertained by “great music” from the ‘60s, ‘70s and 80’s all day long, adding to the fun atmosphere. The bonspiel was a huge success with two full draws consisting of one eight-end and one six-end game. There were curlers from all over Ontario including Cambridge, Richmond Hill, Brampton, Norwood, Stirling, and Campbellford club supporters. Lunch was a change from the standard hot meal. Curlers were treated to two different salads and a build-your-own baked potato bar, with several “delicious” toppings, including vegetarian and meat chili. It was a huge hit and many are taking the idea back to their own clubs for a try. There were many volunteers that gave up their Saturday time to make this bonspiel happen, too many to name individually but a huge thanks to all. It was a terrific day and a new concept for the club. Hopefully this will be an annual bonspiel.

Belleville Youth Swim Team (BYST) member Jonathan Champagne, 12. Erin Stewart/Metroland


Belleville – About 300 youth swimmers travelled to Belleville to compete in the Belleville Youth Swim Team’s (BYST) annual Fall Invitational ‘BYST Meet’ over the weekend. The three-day event from Friday Nov. 2527 included swimmers from clubs in Carleton Place, Ernestown, Kingston, Whitby, Milton and the Quinte Dolpins racing at the Templeman Menninga Aquatics Centre at the Quinte Sports and Wellness Centre. Brandon Oates, head coach of the Belleville Youth Swim Team, said the meet ran perfectly. “We put on quite the show for visiting clubs, they love the facility, we make sure that the pool is nice and fast by lowering the water temperature and altogether we just work as one and delivery a really fantastic meet,” he said. “Everyone seems to be happy and swimming fast and no complaints.” About 108 of the BYST swimmers are swimming at an all time high which is allowing the team to have many new regional qualifiers in the 12 and under age group as well as many 13 and over provincial and national level qualifiers, said Oates.

“It’s very important to us to get our younger swimmers out here and racing, as well as the seniors are coming off of a very intense swimming period and they’re swimming sensationally fast,” he said. Results Katelyn Cairns qualifying for Ontario Junior International in the 200m butterfly with a time of 2:18.76.

Grizzlies battle scrappy as road underdogs Madoc - The Highway 7 Veterinary Sr. Tyke team got ahead early on Saturday afternoon on November 19 against the Campbellford Colts. Goals were scored in the first two periods by Landen Empey, Brody Wight, Easton Thompson (2) and Austin Preston. Assists made by Preston, Mickara Cochrane (2), Logan Empey, Brenen Brownson, Holden Goulah, Owen Koch and Adrien Julia. The Colts did not give up and worked hard in the third to score three goals. Thompson had a beauty goal to end the game assisted by Wight and Goulah. The Grizzlies were happy to take the 6-3 win at home. The Sr. Tykes faced off against the Havelock Hawks bright and early on Sunday November 20. Thompson started the Grizzlie attack by scoring a goal at four seconds into the game. The Hawks answered back with two goals to take the lead and end the first period. The Grizzlies did not let up. Cochrane scored late in the second with an assist from Logan Empey. Preston scored an unassisted goal to help the Grizzlies take the lead at the end of the second. The Hawks answered back with two goals to take the lead and the fans were on the edge of their seat. Adrien Julia then tied it for the Grizzlies midway through the third and then he finished off the hawks with 12 seconds left in the third to give the Grizzlies a 5-4 win. The Danford Construction Novice Grizzlies played two away games this week. The first tilt was in North Frontenac against the league-leading Flyers. Knowing it was going to an uphill battle,

the young Grizzlies came to play and after the first period the game was scoreless. The Flyers finally beat goalie Rheanna Smith with just over a minute to go in the second period. However, the constant pressure was just too much to handle and the home team put a couple more up on the scoreboard and won the game 5-0. Anisley Phillips was awarded the Crosby/Price hardest working player. On Sunday the Grizzlies had a late afternoon game in Norwood against the Hornets. The evenly matched teams were ready to work hard and put a show on for the fans. Opening the scoring for the visiting Grizzlies was Carter Rowles however shortly after the Hornets would even it up. Tait Rosborough would regain the lead when he took a pass from Rowles and put it to the back of the net. The Hornets kept buzzing, however, and once again evened it up with less than a second on the clock. Rowles would notch the only second period goal and give the Grizzlies a 3-2 lead heading into the final frame. The home team managed to score three goals and take a 5-3 lead before Rowles completed his hat trick with assists from Rosborough and Harlee Croskery to pull within one. This would be the closest the Grizzlies would get as Norwood would add another and take the game 6-4. Ava Thompson was awarded the Crosby/Price hardest working player.

Norwood Nemesis blank Glengarry 5-0 BY BILL FREEMAN

Norwood – The Norwood J.J. Stewart Motors Nemesis shut down the CPJHL’s leading scorer and player of the month Felix Stephen on their way to a stunning 5-0 upset of the Glengarry Highlanders Nov. 27 at the Asphodel-Norwood Community Centre. It was the third win (second in regulation) of the year for Norwood (2-15-0-1-0) who were coming off a narrow 4-2 road loss to the first place Almonte Jr. Sharpshooters (14-2-0-11). The Nemesis had lost six straight games to Glengarry (9-10-0-0-3) including a 9-3 spanking on Nov. 20. The two sides skated through a scoreless first period despite Norwood’s 8-4 edge in shots. Alec McKinley opened the scoring early in the second from Brett Holden then made it 2-0 less than two minutes later on a powerplay marker from Joey Dodds. Kyle Ross and Kyle Thomson assisted. Thomson made it 3-0 at the 9:25 mark with

Holden solidifying the lead four minutes later with a shorthanded marker. All-purpose defenseman Garrett Ouellette iced the win at the 11:50 mark of the third. Norwood controlled the play outshooting the Highlanders 51-38 and kept the dangerous Stephen (29 goals, 37 points) in check. Liam Austin picked up the shutout. In Almonte, Norwood fell behind 2-0 after the first period but rallied in the second on powerplay goals by Ouellette and Dodds. A third period powerplay goal by Warren Beach proved to be the winner. Nemesis buzz: Norwood has a busy week ahead starting Nov. 29 in Ottawa against the OTown Rebels (9-7-0-2) followed by back-to-back road games Dec. 2-3 against Glengarry; they host the Sharpshooters on Dec. 4 (7:30 p.m.). Whitely Bay, U.K. native Kyle Ross has been named as an alternate on the CPJHL roster for the Western States Shootout in Las Vegas Dec. 17-21.

MBQ Council receives touching tribute to Aboriginal soldier TERRY MCNAMEE

Tyendinaga- Every Remembrance Day, people recall the soldiers lost and wounded in many wars with the phrase "We will remember them." Now, thanks to the Vimy Foundation, they are being remembered all year long by a new generation of young people. One of those soldiers was Joseph Bernard Hill of the Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte. Hill, who died in 1918 during the First World War, was honoured at the Mohawk Council in Tyendinaga on Friday, Nov. 25. A student named Andrew Yin gave the council a cloth rubbing of Hill's gravestone in France. Andrew, a 17-year-old high school student from Richmond Hill, was born in China, and thus did not grow up knowing the importance of Remembrance Day to Canada. When he decided to research the life of a soldier from the First World War for an essay contest, he chose an Aboriginal soldier as his subject because, he said, he knows what it is like to be a member of a minority. In his research, Andrew discovered that Hill was born in New York State, but later moved to Canada with his family. Hill was 19 years old and living in Deseronto when the Great War began. He enlisted in the Canadian Corps in 1915 and fought on the European Front with the 7th Brigade, Royal Canadian Artillery. On Sept. 30, 1918, Hill was killed in action in

northern France. He was only 22 years old. Andrew's essay won him the Beaverbrook Vimy Prize, which included a two-week trip to Europe to visit important historic sites from both of the world wars. He was one of 16 students aged 15 to 17 from across Canada to receive the award in 2016. The trip was emotional for the young students. "There were some really depressing days," Andrew said. "Seeing the names carved on the Vimy Memorial was really harrowing. But I feel really proud of the sacrifices of these people." He told the MBQ council about his trip, which began in London with a visit to the Churchill bunker, the Canadian Memorial, and a lecture at Oxford University. He said the group visited Essex Farm Cemetery in Ypres, Belgium, where Canadian Army Major John McCrae wrote his famous poem "In Flanders' Fields". Seeing the grave of a Canadian soldier who was only 15 when he was killed really hit home with Andrew, but visiting a cemetery for German soldiers made him realize that those enemy soldiers "were just like us, with families." The students visited the chalk tunnels of Maison Blanche, which are filled with carved messages and drawing left by Canadian soldiers who sought shelter from the German bombs. Andrew said the carv-

ings made them all realize that the soldiers were more than just names. "It's important that we see these soldiers as actual human beings," he said. Other visits included the battle sites at Vimy, Arras, Juno Beach, Dieppe, and the American Omaha Cemetery. Andrew also visited the small Ontario Cemetery in Sains-lesMarquion in northern France, where he found the grave of the soldier whose life he had studied. He said that seeing his headstone and knowing about Hill's life has inspired him to make his own life count and encourages him to help make Canada a better place. "In 2016, Joseph Hill, your contributions have not been forgotten," Andrew said. Council members were visibly moved by Andrew's talk.

"Now that is a proper tribute to our veterans," said Chief R. Donald Maracle. As Andrew presented him with the cloth rubbing from Hill's tombstone, Maracle said, "On behalf of the Mohawk Council, I'd like to thank you." He said Aboriginal soldiers seldom get the recognition they deserve, so Andrew's work on behalf of Hill was greatly appreciated.

Hill was killed in battle in northern France on Sept. 30, 1918, at the age of 22. Terry McNamee/Metroland

Woman pleads guilty to starving horses Shannonville – A 56-year-old Shannonville woman has pleaded guilty to three counts of animal cruelty under the Ontario SPCA Act and is banned from owning livestock for 10 years after failing to care for her horses. On June 22, the Ontario SPCA received a call about two emaciated horses at a property in Shannonville, east of Belleville. The attending officer found a 34-year-old mare and 18-year-old gelding that were extremely thin, with their ribs, hips and spine

protruding. Living in poor conditions, the horses had no food or water and were in need of veterinary care. As a result of the investigation, Catherine Lachapelle was charged with permitting distress, failing to provide adequate and appropriate food and water and failing to provide medical attention for the horses. She pleaded guilty on November 21 to all three counts and received a 10-year prohibition from owning any livestock and was also placed on probation for

two years. Lachapelle surrendered the horses to the Ontario SPCA where they received immediate care and veterinary attention. After being rehabilitated, the mare was adopted and the gelding is currently going through the “re-homing process,” said a statement from the OSPCA. To report animal cruelty or neglect, call the Ontario SPCA’s 24-hour, province-wide dispatch centre at 310SPCA.

Thieves target parcels in cars – lock them out Belleville - Each Christmas shopping season, thieves target vehicles in mall and commercial parking lots for gift items carelessly left in unlocked vehicles in plain sight. For that reason, Belleville police have once again launched their 'Lock It or Lose It' program. Beginning Friday, members of Belleville Community Policing and Belleville police service Auxiliary Constables will be out in the community to kick off the Lock it or Lose it Campaign. "This successful crime prevention program focuses on reducing vehicle

thefts and thefts from vehicles especially during the holiday season," said police in a statement Friday. "Starting today, vehicles will be checked in parking lots throughout the city of Belleville to ensure vehicles are locked and valuables are kept out of sight. Pamphlets will be placed on vehicle windshields advising vehicle owners of the inspection. This successful campaign highlights the importance of everyone working together for a safer community." Police warn, where and when possible, to store gifts in car trunks or covered in vehicles and to ensure all doors are locked and windows closed.


Cost of hearing aids punishing for seniors Dear Editor, Why is there is no regulation for hearing aid prices in Canada? Prices can range from $3,000 to over $6,000. While there is a government deduction of $1,000 to the consumer, hearing aids can still cost an exorbitant amount for many seniors and low income individuals. Vendor providers inflate the prices to make this a highly lucrative business. Prices, for example, can cost anywhere from a mild hearing loss hearing aid of $3,000 $4,000, while intermediate devices and more severe hearing loss can range much higher. Even with the government kicking in $1,000, this still leaves a substantial amount of money for the consumer to find. While one can finance at approximately 7-8%, it still means that many seniors have to go into debt for this significant improvement in ear health, brain health, hearing ability and quality of life, at any age.

Even those seniors lucky enough to have Medical Insurance Plans can only expect anywhere from $100 to $300 reimbursement. The bulk of the costs are from the manufacturers’ research money in developing the hearing aid, the cost of the local dealer, the limited amount of consumers or the expense of running a brick and mortar business. All the added costs are passed on to the consumer hence the high prices. Apparently, according to research, many thousands of Canadians with age related hearing loss just don’t buy them as they simply cannot afford them, especially those living on government pensions and other allowances. This seems to be a highly ineffective way of helping our seniors age gracefully, keeping their minds sharp and their hearing optimal via hearing aids.

Kick off Christmas with some carols at The Church Trenton – It won’t be long before homes are made Christmas cozy with the scent of pine, the sound of carols and the warmth of family. Quinte and area residents are invited to celebrate this festive time with the Old Church Theatre and our Charles Dickens Readers. Now a Christmas tradition, a dramatic reading of Dickens’ A Christmas Carol will be presented at the Old Church Theatre, 940 Bonisteel Road on Sunday, December 11 at 2 p.m. Organizers Brian Weston and Lesley Bonisteel are pleased to report that some new readers will

be contributing their efforts to this year’s presentation, all musicians who have performed at the Church. The readers are Saskia Tomkins, Joe Callahan, Penny Kitchen, Howard Baer, Kim Doolittle and Peter Snell. Bonisteel added; “Ours is a small and intimate setting that contributes to the seasonal, “Charles Dickens” like atmosphere.” The hot apple cider from Grills Orchard and baking provided by Smylie’s Independent Grocer will contribute to that seasonal atmosphere as well. The Old Church Theatre productions of A Christmas Carol were started by Roy Bonisteel

and featured well-known CBC radio personality Amanda Putz, Quinte West Library CEO Rita Turtle, and many other guests over the years. Andy Thompson of Northumberland Studio/ Studio 29 will provide the musical accompaniment again this year and Reverend Hal Wilson returns, this year as Master of Ceremonies. Admission is $10. Please call or reserve a seat online as space is limited. For more information or reservations call (613) 848-1411 or visit: www. Christmas poster included

Glenora fights weather to complete stocking program MUSIC & COMEDY


Picton - Glenora Fisheries Research staff are fighting a deadline with the weather to complete their scheduled lake trout stocking program for the year. Thousands of small lake trout were unloaded Tuesday Nov. 22 despite harsh winds, heaving waves and a delayed delivery truck. Hauled to the station, just east of Picton, in large steel tanks on flatbed trucks, the small fish are pumped into large tanks on board the station’s large trawler tug, 60 feet long, tied up at a dock. With water levels still very

low, the entrance opening to the trawler remains several feet below the dock, making it difficult to the point of hazardous for crew to get up and down, even moreso with the boat bouncing wildly in the surging waves. In recent days, winds, weather and even a mechanical breakdown have hampered the staff ’s efforts to get their young trout delivered and emptied at strategic locations in the bay and surrounding waters. A spokesperson at the station said the staff normally allow extra time to account for problems and weather, but this year, time is running out.

A large tank on board the trawler receives the hatchlings which are later pumped into the water by a large hose. Jack Evans/Metroland

An Exhilarating Off-road Tour in Sedona, Arizona


On my recent visit to Sedona, I took an off-road tour with Sedona Offroad Adventures. After all, these tours are apparently the most popular way to get out and explore Sedona's rugged landscape and eye-popping scenery, and this particular company offers tours from "mild to wild", by both jeep and Hummer. My particular tour took me in a Hummer up on the Colorado Plateau to a height of about 2,000 feet above Sedona. We climbed to the Schnebly Hill Vista, an awesome overlook, and although much of our ride wasn't truly off-road, it was on a very old, unimproved stagecoach road that I certainly wouldn't have been able to navigate in a car. In fact, even the jeep tours on this so-called road offered a "shake, rattle, and roll" experience, for the tourists could be seen bouncing around and getting shaken up. You might want to hold on to your hat, glasses, and stomach! In fact, it's recommended that you skip this tour altogether if you have serious back or neck problems or are pregnant. It's also suggested that you don't wear contact lenses, for it can get very dusty on these rides. Even our Hummer tour offered some good bounces, but this machine could handle the boulders and jutting rocks quite well, and we were able to keep on rolling. Also, the Hummer allows everyone to have a forward facing seat, equipped with an individual seat belt. I rode shotgun, so I was right up front, next to the driver. One of our very first sightings was of a mannequin on a balcony on a large house on a hill that's known as "Sedona's House of Seven Arches". We were told that this mannequin was in honour of comedian and actress Lucille Ball, formerly of "I Love Lucy" fame, who used to often stay in this particular house. It's still sometimes referred to as "Lucy's House"

- and if you happen to remember the very old Doublemint commercials on TV, where young twin girls would talk about "doubling your pleasure" by chewing Doublemint Gum, well, one of these twins eventually became the owner of this very house. As we ascended the Colorado Plateau, our guide/driver would give us a lot of pertinent information about the area's unique rock structures and the plants that we saw along the way, too. He'd give us the names of particular rocky precipices and buttes as we passed, and he even found one that he said we'd call the "Smith Amphitheatre" today. However, he was particularly informative about pointing out plants that were edible and used by natives for healing purposes, for it turns out that he had studied these. For example, he pointed out some Manzanita (which translates from Spanish as "little apples"), Mormon tea, blackberry, canyon grape, and banana yucca. He also pointed out some mistletoe that

was growing along this escarpment, and he told us that this particular plant was poisonous, so he thought that it was rather peculiar that we picked a poisonous plant to use as a symbol for kissing at Christmas time! Other poisonous plants included oleander, century plant, castor bean, and candelabras cactus. Our guide's name was VJ Mitchell, and he was a real entertainer. After all, another job of his is as the "Elvis of Sedona", so he would suddenly burst into an Elvis Presley song as we rode along! His Elvis impersonations have actually led him to gigs in such places as Las Vegas and Hawaii, and he loves to perform. He often sings at weddings in the area, or delivers singing telegrams. He also liked to shout out "Thank you. Thank you very much" in his Elvis voice as we drove along. He's not shy! His antics actually added to the Spectacular views of Sedona’s ‘Red Rock Country’ as viewed on this tour, and he took photos of his tour. guests when we finally arrived at John M.

Quinte Symphony’s Mozart tribute will remember a youthful genius JACK EVANS

The Quinte Symphony's tribute to child prodigy Mozart will be one of the most ambitious programs the local orchestra has undertaken in some years. To be held on Dec. 10 at 7:30 p.m. in Bridge Street Church, the timing is meant to reflect the precise day and same approximate time Mozart died in Vienna 225 years ago. It also involves a regional ad hoc choir that has been rehearsing

for months, drawing singers from Campbellford to Picton and as far as Kingston. It will also feature a unique "portatif," a hand -operated type of pipe organ that can trace its origins back to ancient Greece. This will be the first time many, if not most area residents have ever seen such an instrument. Finally, the major work will be Mozart's inspiring, tuneful and stirring "Requiem," as stated on the pro-

gram, his "last words." He died before he could quite finish it. But he did leave notes which were completed by an associate composer for the work we know and love today. The "Requiem" will involve several professional soloists, including the Quinte area's own Elizabeth McDonald and Kim Dafoe and Kingston-based Bruce Kelly, baritone and Robert Martin, both known to music-loving audiences in Belleville and area.

Topping off the program will be a delightful Mozart piano concerto, introducing British-born pianist Clare Gordon for the first time in Belleville. It has often been said that Mozart can be compared to sunshine when it comes to music. Because of the memorial aspects of this unique concert, the orchestra will not be playing its traditional Christmas program, leaving that to many other musical organizations in

the area, at least for this year. It may not be Christmas music, but orchestra officials contend it will sound like that. Tickets, at $25 for adults, $20 for seniors and students are now available at the Quinte Arts Council office, Sam the Record Man, Quinte Mall, Books and Company, Picton, and on line. Tickets are also available at the website, "thequintesymphony. com."

Panto must go on – with a cast change JACK EVANS

Stirling- Just as this year's Stirling Festival Theatre panto, "Jack and the Beanstalk," was about to open, the cast has experienced a major change. Veteran Debbie Collins, who has performed in several SFT pantomimes has been asked to take part in a major traveling cast production. Joanne Hartmann, theatre spokesperson, said the theatre has made amicable agreement to let Collins go and has recruited a long-time associate of Collins, Christina Gordon, to take over the role of Fairy of the Field . The show opened last weekend, and Collins will remain with the cast to tidy up choreography until Dec. 10 before turning the role over to Gordon. "I have done several shows, including pantos, at SFT," said Gordon from her Toronto home last week. "I am delighted to return to Stirling

and to work with Debbie and the rest of the crew. I know most of them and have known Debbie for some years. We just never seem to get the chance to be on stage together. The chance for me came just as I was wrapping up a show here so it is ideal timing."She noted she did shows during the first year Caroline Smith opened the theater 20 years ago, including the first panto, "Aladdin." Collins expressed thanks to the theatre for allowing her to leave her contract. The opportunity is to join a major new road show which will rehearse in Toronto then go on tour throughout the United States and across western Canada for several months. "I'll remain to finish the choreography and stay with "Jack and the Beanstalk" until Dec. 10," she said. Gordon will arrive Dec. 4 and spend several days learning the role and the script before taking over after that.

Bossio garnering kudos from national municipal body Local Member of Parliament Mike Bossio is getting rave reviews from the national body that represents municipalities for the MP’s work in raising the voice of rural communities on Parliament Hill. After a recent rural forum, held by the federation, FCM president Clark Somerville and FCM Rural Forum Chair Ray Orb issued the following statement after hosting a meeting in Ottawa with Mike Bossio, MP (Hastings-Lennox and Addington) and Chair of the Liberal Party of Canada’s National Rural Caucus. In its statement, the FCM said “Phase 2 of the federal infrastructure plan is an unprecedented opportunity to foster growth and a higher quality of life across Canada. In September, the Rural Forum endorsed a plan to ensure Phase 2 works

for communities of all sizes. Earlier this month, the Fall Economic Statement responded with new, dedicated investments for rural and northern priorities.”

“Members of FCM’s Rural Forum are encouraged by today’s productive dialogue in Ottawa with Mike Bossio,” said the statement. “As chair of the federal Liberals’ National Rural Caucus, Mr. Bossio has shown himself to be a strong partner in our efforts to strengthen Canada’s rural, northern and remote communities - communities vital to Canada’s social, cultural and econom-

ic future.” According to FCM, the next phase of infrastructure spending for the government “will need to support the broad range of capital priorities of less populated areas - including roads and bridges, water and wastewater treatment, septic system upgrades and the full range of transportation and mobility needs in rural areas. With Phase 2 design details expected no later than Budget 2017, members of FCM’s Rural Forum look forward to continuing our dialogue with Mr. Bossio and his government colleagues. For the millions of Canadians who live in rural, northern and remote communities, significant quality-of-life improvements may be just around the corner.” The FCM bills itself as “the national voice of local government, with nearly 2,000 members representing 90 per cent of Canada’s population.”

Amnesty International Belleville to mark International Human Rights Day Dec. 10 Belleville - Last year at this time, Yecenia Armenta was in a Mexican jail. She had been raped, suffocated and tortured by the police until she confessed to a crime she did not commit. Then a remarkable thing happened: 300,000 actions (letters and signatures on petitions) from people around the world were written on her behalf, coordinated by Amnesty International (AI) for International Human Rights Day. More than 50 of those letters came from the Quinte area. Within six months, after four years in jail, Armenta was released.

“Without this support, my freedom would have been almost impossible,” Armenta said when she was released from jail. “I want to thank you and to urge you to continue your efforts.”

Serious savings on great looking S furniture? Let the shopping begin!

ery Dec. 10, as many as 3 million people around the world take part in AI’s Write for Rights, in support of human rights defenders and prisoners of conscience; those imprisoned for peacefully exercising their rights to freedom of expression and assembly. This is the world’s largest human rights event. “Yecenia was just one of the prisoners and human rights defenders who were helped to freedom and fairness last year,”

Connie Gallupe, chair of AI’s Belleville group, said. “Shining a spotlight on the dark nooks and crannies really does make a difference.”

This year, AI’s Belleville Group 111 is sponsoring Write for Rights on Saturday, Dec. 10 at Bridge Street United Church, 60 Bridge Street East. Those interested in participating can drop in any time between 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information, call Connie at On International Human Rights Day ev- 962-7416 or Mike at 969-1782.

The Good Earth: Rock On!

Dan Clost There are so many ways in which stones can be used in a landscape and only a few of those ways can be said to be “wrong”; perhaps a kinder word to use is “unsuitable”. Then again, since all landscapes are constructs one might simply say that the artistic concept is a titch off centre. This allows generous latitude in the critique of the design with the architect’s only reviewer of note being the person who signs the cheque. However, some things are

“wrong” and always will be so. Many years ago, when I was a student trodding the dusty halls of academia, I wrote a paper on the placement of stones, quoting a fellow who is now well-known to many in the landscape industry, Michael Boers. I’ve lost that paper but I do remember the gist of his statement: “The most common mistake people make with stones is to place them upside down.” The challenge is that most stones are big, heavy and difficult to move so once they have been set into place they are seldom “un”placed. Upside down stones are easily seen in a natural stone wall and can best be explained by quoting the words from a very famous folk song: “One of these things is not like the others.” (Yes, Gentle Reader, I know it is from a children’s show; however, the immortal Louis Armstrong said, “All music is folk music. I ain’t never heard a horse sing a song.”) Another common mistake, usually gen-

erated by a pencil sharpening gnome in the accounting department, is to select less appropriate material. For example, armour stone (not to be confused with the propriety product) is large quarried material often used to protect against the elements. When exposed to our winter’s freeze and thaw cycles, shale slabs will quickly deteriorate, yet they are commonly used in low-budget sites. Within a few years, they are nothing more than a crumbled pile of stone shards. Whether you are contemplating large stones as

an ornamental feature or for a substantial structure, the best thing you can do is bring in the professionals. Make sure to view their work and ... as when hiring any contractor ... ask to see their certifications and liability coverage. Perhaps the best known form of gardening with stones is, eponymously enough, the Japanese stone garden. Sometimes called a Zen garden, which more accurately reflects its purpose, it is more appropriate to call it karesansui or dry land gardening. This more accurately reflects the use of stone and

its components, e.g. sand, to represent water’s movement where there is none. I believe it best to use the proper term (as much as we are able to understand it as there is a cross-cultural element that doesn’t’ always translate to our western sensitivities) to keep us on track. These gardens are often created with relaxation and meditation in mind. Balance is extremely important, especially with the size of the stones in relation to the overall dimension of the garden space. The type of stone used is left to the selector however it is required that these stones

be shaped by nature and not quarried. You can make it part of your mission to tour the country-side looking for just the right shaped stone. (It is important to note that there may be by-laws restricting “harvesting” from road-sides.) Stones can be a strong element in the landscape and is certainly worth investigation for your estate. However, there are perils which can be avoided by some simple research. As Van Halen (and many others) once exclaimed, “Rock on!”

In Memory Velma Dafoe My wife Velma for 51 years. The love of my life gone 7 years. I couldn’t have found a better partner and wife. We had the relationship and commitment few can achieve and the rest dream of. The 1st year in the army was tough financially, but it got better quickly. Through good jobs and investments we were able to do any and everything we ever dreamed of. We spent 50 years traveling the world at every opportunity. In 1985 my wife bought me a new Harley Davidson, we flew it to Europe on a 747 and toured Europe for the summer. The most important thing I ever said was our wedding vows - Love, Honour, and Cherish, and I practiced that every day. I was away many times in the army, Germany, Cyprus, Jerusalem, Beirut, and many other places for extended periods of time. And always engraved in my mind when I looked in the mirror were the words - Love, Honour and Cherish. One last word of advice... Hug your wife and tell her you love her daily, that chance may be gone in a heart beat. And if you smoke.... Quit. God gave man no greater reward after a life time of commitment then to spend your twilight years in each others arms watching the sun go down. John Dafoe
