Remembrance Day

Seats of honour were set aside for some of the older veterans on a brilliantly sunny and warm Remembrance Day in Sharbot Lake on Sunday. Thanks, in part, to the sunny weather, the turnout for the ceremony was the highest in recent memory.

Budget and Sydenham water keep SF councilors powder dry by Wilma Kenny n Saturday Nov 10, council met for five hours to review the preliminary 2013 budget. As presented, both capital and operating budgets were up, reserves were to be drawn down $1,269,681, and there remained the assumption that $600,000 would continue to come from the City of Kingston: “talks are underway.” The bottom line was a projected increase of 4.78% in property taxes. Assessment phase in is expected to show an increase of 6.5%, down from the past three years of over 8%, as projected growth has slowed to just 1.96%. CAO Orr drew Council’s attention to nine major expansion initiatives that are proposed for 2013: roads construction, contracted roadside brushing, bridge maintenance, topsoil and seeding, mowing to fence line, pavement preservation, expanded dust control, consulting in human relations, work-


place safety and technology, and updating civic numbering. The day proceeded with questions, discussion, and requests for more information. There was general concern about drawing too heavily from reserves. In summary, Mayor Davison directed staff to come back with two options: a budget proposal with a tax increase “modestly above 3%”, and one with the increase “modestly below 3%.” Orr agreed to bring an updated budget package, with highlighted changes, to Council on December 4. Sydenham Water Costs The upgrade to the Sydenham Water Works had a capital cost of $1,435,000. Federal/provincial grants covered $946,666 of this, but the municipal portion of $488,336 remains unfinanced. As well, increasing operating costs have resulted in reserves that are well below the funding needed to cover depreciation /replacement costs. The treasurer’s report states: “The Sustain-

able Water and Sewage System Act requires municipalities that provide water and sewage services to the public to implement full cost accounting and full cost recovery including operating, financing, replacement and improvement costs. The Act seeks to introduce the principle that having consumers pay the full cost of providing water...will promote water conservation and greater awareness of water and environmental protection.” Council Composition In response to an earlier recommendation from Council, Wayne Orr presented a summary of possible changes to the composition of Council, details of council composition in 15 neighbouring townships, and a framework for the public consultation process that would be required before making any changes. The seven alternatives included increasing or decreasing the size of Council, electing councilors by district, or from the township at large, and electing a deputy mayor as a separate position. Councilors decided to keep the sta-

n a delegation to council that was attended by over 30 members of the public, Terry Kennedy, president of the Kennebec Lake Association, presented to the group’s recommendations for a proposed new property standards by-law that council is currently in the process of drafting. He opened the presentation stating that he was “here to give council a necessary nudge to solve what may be a difficult issue but not an impossible one.” Kennedy outlined the recommendations, most of which were minor corrections to the proposed by- law. Some of the recommendations included the addition of terms like “unsightly”, which the recommendations defined as “in a condition that is deemed offensive by reason of disrepair, neglect or dereliction”. While Kennedy rightly understood that terms like unsightly are a matter of personal taste, he reiterated his desire

to improve the current Safe Properties Bylaw by giving it the means to address dwellings or properties which, though they may not pose a health or safety risk, can still be considered to be derelict and ruinous. He concluded his presentation stating that “this by-law is intended as an enabler and will empower council and staff and members of the community to do something about some of these derelict places. Rural and rustic does not have to mean ruinous.” Councilor Norm Guntensperger responded first, stating that he had a problem with some of the recommendations, especially with words like “unsightly”, and “neat” and “tidy” as well as the recommendations citing long grass, excessive weed growth and rodents as being unacceptable as outlined in the by-law. “Long grass and rodents are also a part of the natural surroundings,” he said. “We as a

council here need to respect the vulnerable in the community who may be having difficulty keeping their properties at the same standards as others. If we pass by-laws that make vulnerable people less able to live in our society, I personally will feel that we as council have not done our job properly.” Mayor Gutowski reiterated the fact that council on average receives just 20 complaints per year regarding the Safe Properties By-Law, the large majority of which they are able to address with the current by-law. “Of those 20 maybe only three pose a problem so we also need to keep that in mind.” She added that though property standards was not an issue she was keen on addressing in her first term as mayor, she now feels that since council has made an effort to keep up their buildings and parks, she feels comfortable asking the residents of Central Frontenac to do the same.

Notes on pipeline 9 O

by Jeff Green

ne comment sticks in my mind from a meeting I attended last week about the ‘reversal’ of Enbridge oil Pipeline 9, which runs through our region. In the midst of his cautionary presentation about Enbridge, pipelines, and leaks, Adam Scott from Environmental Defence said that the matter of Pipeline 9 would not normally be that urgent for members of the public. However, since the government of Canada has waived the requirement for an environmental assessment to be completed before approving changes in the operations of a pipeline, the public should be very concerned. The idea that no environmental assessment is needed for this project is staggering. Mr. Scott said that once the approval is granted, diluted bitumen (dilbit) from Alberta will be able to flow through the pipeline. He also asserted that dilbit is more corrosive than other forms of oil, increasing the risk of a leak in the 36-yearold pipeline, which runs under all of the source waters to the great lakes. An official from Enbridge said that the company plans to transport light crude oil from the west through the line in the short term, but said it is possible that dilbit will flow through the line some time later. He also said dilbit is no more corrosive than light crude oil, which has been flowing through the pipeline without incident for all these years. I am in no position to evaluate these two claims, and a search of web sources yielded only contradictory claims. I did find, however, that a major study is underway in the

Editorial United States. Spurred on by the controversial Keystone Pipeline project, the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) in the United States is working with three senior engineers from a group called NACE (the National Association of Corrosion Engineers) on a 12 to 16-month study of the corrosive effects of diluted bitumen. This study, to be completed to top industrial and scientific standards, should answer the technical question about the corrosive effects of dilbit once and for all. The very fact the study is underway speaks to the fact that this question has not yet been resolved. The involvement of the NACE in this study is noteworthy in itself because NACE is active in 100 countries and counts 28,000 engineers as members, and its entire mandate is to study the effects of corrosion. If any kind of environmental assessment were required for a major change in the use of a 300,000 barrel per day pipeline, a study of the literature would certainly come to the conclusion that this NAS corrosion study is entirely relevant and should be considered before any final decision is taken. This would delay Enbridge’s plans for a year, I realise, but one year is not that long a time for a project like this, particularly when you compare it to the way approvals are handled locally.

It took at least two years for all of the assessments and approvals to come through for the creation of building lots on Kennebec Lake. It takes about that long for a rural plan of subdivision to be completed in South Frontenac. That is the way it works when development is subject to the kinds of rules that have been put in place to ensure safe water for neighbouring properties, and safe habitat for wildlife. These rules are in place through provincial and municipal regulations that are designed to protect the long term interests of all concerned. While developers and individual landowners don’t always like the rules, at least they can take solace in the fact that they should be equally applied in all cases. Not so, it seems, when large companies are involved, even though the environmental stakes are much higher than they are in creating building lots or plans of subdivision. We are left with the feeling that all we can do is hope that Enbridge is good to their word, and will indeed take all necessary precautions. It would help if they offered to hold off on any consideration of sending diluted bitumen through the 36-year-old Pipeline 9 until the experts from NACE get a chance to report on its corrosive properties.

Counties differ on electoral boundaries Frontenac loves L&A – L&A loves Hastings – but Hastings is playing hard to get. by Jeff Green


esidents of Frontenac, Lanark, Lennox and Addington, and Hastings counties will be seeing their federal and provincial ridings change as of the next federal election, slated for 2015. But what those changes will look like is up in the air. The three-member Electoral Boundary Commission, responding to the desire from Lanark County politicians and residents to reunite Lanark County into one riding, have proposed the creation of two east-west ridings. Although the new ridings would unite all of Lanark into one riding, the three counties to the west of Lanark would all be split into different ridings. If the draft boundaries are approved, Frontenac County will be split into three ridings, and each of Hastings and Lennox and Addington counties into two. While officials of Frontenac, Lennox and Addington and Hastings counties, as well as sitting MP Scott Reid, all reject the proposed new electoral boundaries for the region, they don’t all agree on the best alternative. At hearings in Kingston, Belleville, and Ottawa last week, at least a half a dozen alternative proposals emerged for the consideration of the commissioners. Frontenac County proposal In Kingston on November 7, Frontenac County Chief Administrative Officer, Liz Savill, proposed severing Frontenac from Lanark County, and creating a riding of Lanark-Carleton to the east, which would include Lanark County and parts of rural Ottawa. She also proposed a riding including all of Frontenac and Lennox and Addington Counties and parts of north Kingston, which are now part of the Kingston and the Islands riding. She cited the historic ties between Frontenac and Lennox and Addington counties, which had been one county until

the mid-1800s. Lennox and Addington proposal Bill Lowery, the warden of Lennox and Addington County, presented the views of his council, which sees its future in an alliance with Hastings County. They propose a riding of Hastings, Lennox and Addington, but did not provide information about the implications this would have for other proposed ridings, leaving that up to the commissioners. Warden Lowery’s submission, coming as it did on the heels of CAO Liz Savill’s, amused one of the commissioners, former Ontario Municipal Board Chair Doug Coulborne. “So, Frontenac wanted you, but you wanted Hastings,” Coulborne said to Lowery. In questioning both proposals, the commissioners revealed a couple of their concerns. The Frontenac County proposal would impact both the City of Ottawa and the City of Kingston. “We have already heard that the residents in west Ottawa would like to keep their riding in the City,” said commission chair Justice George Valin. To that end, Ron Hartling, the president of the Liberal Party Riding Association for Kingston and the Islands, asked the commission whether the City of Kingston would have the opportunity to respond to the Frontenac County proposal, and George Valin said they would, “but they should do it pretty soon.” The other concern that the commissioners mentioned concerned the population numbers of the new ridings. The average population of ridings has been set at about 106,000, and the commission is loathe to see ridings that stray too far from that figure, although they do have leave for ridings to vary as much as 25%, leaving an upper limit of almost 133,000 and a lower limit of about 80,000. The proposal from L&A County would create a Hastings/L&A riding at the top end of that range at almost 133,000 people.

Hastings County options Meanwhile, Hastings County has their own thoughts on the matter. Hastings County Warden Rick Phillips and CAO Jim Pine, made a presentation to the commission hearing in Belleville on November 8. Hastings, it turns out, is the Greta Garbo of the region; they would really like to be left alone.

We did a survey and found that 98% of the registrants for the runs came from outside the township. Those people spend money in local businesses and they come back to the township at other times during the year,” said Moffitt. He also said that he is aware of five individuals who have purchased property in the township after participating in the ATV runs. He added that the general manager of

the population numbers would not be ideal in this arrangement – Hastings/Belleville would be at about 92,000 and LFL&A 132,000. Therefore, Hastings County proposed two alternatives, which both involve taking back parts of Lennox and Addington from the LFL&A riding. Hastings County’s option 2 adds Napanee to Hastings, giving Hastings/Belleville/ Napanee 107,000 people and LFL&A 116,000. Option 3 would add Napanee and Loyalist township to the Hastings/Napanee riding, which would tip the balance the other way, putting the Hastings/Belleville/South L&A riding at 123,000 and LFL&A to 100,000.

My practice size is over 2,000 patients which is about double the normalsized practice for a family physician. This has made it difficult for me to provide care in as timely a way as I might have liked on occasion, but in the absence of a second physician my nursing staff and I have done our best. Dr. Oglaza’s arrival will enable me to transfer a number of my patients to him. This will enable us to improve patient wait times, and enable me to get out of the clinic before 7 or 8 at night! I plan to downsize my patient load in the immediate future by 500 patients effective 1 January 2013. When you come to the office for your appointment in the coming months, I will be asking you if you will help me by agreeing to become Dr. Oglaza’s patient. No one is absolutely required to make that change, but it will help me if you agree. I know that many of the men in my practice have been wanting a male physician. Well, gentlemen, here is your chance! You don’t have to wait for an appointment to make the change. You can volunteer. Just come to the office, and sign a roster form. In routine daily practice, Dr. Oglaza and I plan to practice as a team, so there will be days when he sees some of my patients, and I see some of his. I would like to thank you all in advance for considering my request. And I know that you, my patients, will all help us to make Dr. Oglaza feel welcome here in Verona. Sincerely, Laurel J.

Some reminders about the flu shot: The flu shot cannot cause the flu since the vaccine does not contain the live virus. The flu shot protects for up to 12 months, so every year you must get another flu shot. Have you had your flu shot this year? The most common genetic disorder affecting Canadians is hereditary hemochromatosis. It is caused by a defect in the metabolism of iron that leads to iron overload in vital organs and tissues, which can lead to damage. Early diagnosis is important and treatment is 100% effective, consisting of the removal of some blood periodically until iron levels return to normal. Working night shifts can be really hard on the body and mind. It’s good to have at least two nights of really good sleep following the night shifts to feel refreshed and back to normal. Probably when you were a child with a cold your mother rubbed Vicks or Mentholatum on your chest to relieve the symptoms and give you (and your Mom!) a good night’s sleep. Well, this treatment does help to make breathing easier and helps reduce coughs. It’s worth a try. Sometimes, the older remedies are just as good as newer ones. For advice on all cough and cold remedies, talk to our knowledgeable pharmacists. We are always available to help.

Dec 1. The parade will begin at Centennial Park at 10am, Open House to follow at the Hall on Colebrook Rd. Free hot dogs, hot chocolate, goodies and a visit from Santa. Everyone welcome. To be a part of the parade please call Sheila Anthony or Rob Tapscott at (613) 376-6164. · St. Paul's United Church in Harrowsmith will once again host a free pancake breakfast before the Santa Claus Parade. Doors open at 9am. All are welcome. · Words to live by: Live your life. Take Chances. Be Crazy. Don't wait, because right now is the oldest you've ever been and the youngest you'll ever be again.

The ABCs of community rejuvenation at Bolingbroke’s ABC hall T he old adage “If you build it they will come” is proving to be the case at the old ABC Hall in Bolingbroke. In an ongoing effort to revitalize community life in the area, members of the recently formed Althorpe-Bolingbroke Community Association have been breathing new life into the association and their home - the ABC hall. The hall, which is located near Bolingbroke on Hwy 36, was originally built and founded as the Sherbrooke Community Club by seven members of the community in 1947. It was built with the vision of becoming a central hub where members of the community could meet, work and socialize together in one building for local entertainment, community meetings, parties and other events. In 1949 the name of the hall was changed to the Althorpe Bolingbroke Community Club and in 1953, after copious fundraising efforts, the building was fully completed. In 1974 the ABC Club was incorporated under the Community Centres Act of the Township of South Sherbrooke and on April 10, 1980 it was registered as a non-profit organization. Since its construction, the hall has been managed over the years and operated by the ABC Club members and vol-

NAEC Trick or Eat a big success! O n October 31, 11 students from North Addington Education Centre (NAEC) canvassed the community in their costumes, not for candy or treats, but for non-perishable food items. At least two students were stationed in each community: Flinton, Northbrook, and Cloyne. The response was overwhelming. Most homes had a bag or box of food ready, and were not reluctant to contribute to the community. There was a pick up location in each community, as the food was collected on Hallowe’en night. The event and pick up were supervised by a staff member. In total, students collected 708 items (up from just over 400 last year), which will help the food bank through the winter season. Lydia Kellar, an NAEC student, said, “I couldn’t believe how much fun I had! A lot of people recognized the Campbell’s soup can costumes right away. I can’t wait to do it next year!” The items were then taken over to the food bank and unloaded by the junior boys’ volleyball team. Angela Salmond, the principal of NAEC, was excited to show her support for the event: “I am so proud of our students and would like to extend my thanks to their families and the community. Our students are able to contribute because of the support we receive from the community. Thank you for investing in our

students- I am very grateful”. While this event helped stock the shelves, the winter and holiday seasons are a busy time for the food bank. An attempt was made to go to as many houses as possible, but if your donation was missed, please call North Addington at 613-336-8991 and ask for Ms. Bovard; we will pick up your item(s). For those requiring assistance, please contact Land O’ Lakes Community Services at 613-336-8934. Those wishing to donate food, please call Karen Anderson at 613391-1408 (leave a message if there is no answer).

and carried out most of the capital improvements. The hall became the central hub for emergency workers during the 1998 ice storm. In 2003 the association applied for and received a $25,000 Trillium grant, which enabled numerous upgrades to the hall, including wheelchair accessibility for the entrance and washroom facilities, and updates to the kitchen facilities. The building has since developed into a fully functional community hall, with a well and septic tank, a kitchen, heating and air conditioning, and telephone service. In 2010, fundraising efforts allowed for the floor to be refurbished. As the only community centre in a 10km radius, the hall has become over the years the home for numerous community organizations and events. President of the AlthorpeBolingbroke Community Association, Martin Yates, said the recent efforts to rejuvenate the hall were “the kick in the pants in the community needed”. He spoke of the numerous events that are now taking place at the hall thanks in part to association member Freda Russell, who manages the new initiatives at the hall. Numerous members of the community are offering up their know how and talents at a number of regular scheduled events. New regular events at the hall include Yoga classes, a coffee house, the Women’s Circle of Friends group, and the “Saturday Seekers”, an inter-faith Saturday Sunday school for youngsters organized and run by Rev. Micheline Montreuil. These, together with other longtime regular gatherings for euchre, the CPHC Seniors exercise class and Diners’ Club, and the Seniors Club along with the monthly Saturday Night Potluck Jams/Open Mic, make the hall a very busy place these days. I visited the hall on November 10 where singer/musician Glenn Russell was hosting the Open Mic and taking down names of participants. It’s an event he began with his wife Freda three years ago, which attracts a myriad of players from far and wide. Other efforts undertaken by the association was a recent membership drive, which this September saw the total number of members double from 14 to 30 families (the cost of membership is just $10 per year per family). For those who have yet to visit the ABC Hall, your chance is coming up on November 24.

More guests “In the Guestroom” W ith a plethora of musicians lining up at his door following the release in May 2010 of his first CD titled “In The Guestroom”, the writing was on the wall for a follow up. Verona musician Lee Casement, who gained notoriety as the bass and guitar player in the band Telephoto, is set to release the brand new second installment of that first effort. The new CD is aptly named “In the Guestroom Part 2: By Design or By Desire”. Lee, who currently plays bass with the band Ianspotting, began work on Part 2 almost immediately after the first Guestroom CD was released. “I had so many people wanting to play on the first that I decided pretty quickly to do the second,“ he said. “The formula for this one is pretty much the same, with me co-writing with the guests, but this time there were over 15 musicians taking part so logistically it took a lot more effort to coordinate the whole thing.” The new CD was recorded mainly in Jeff Babcock’s studio in Hartington and includes a line up of musicians with whom Lee has wanted to collaborate and record for years. Featured on the CD are Shaun Weima, Gerald and Samantha McGrath, Brad Smith, Annette McCaffrey and a host of others whose unique sounds and stylings give this CD a

by Julie Druker

Lee Casement very broad scope. Chris Murphy of Crooked Wood was a classmate of Lee’s at Sydenham High School and both have waited years for this chance to collaborate together. The two collaborated on track number four, titled “Fernwah, The Wanderlust” which combines Chris’ folksy east coast roots with Lee’s alternative rock influence. “That tune I think represents a great blend of our two very different styles and demonstrates the middle ground where two musicians like us can meet.” Another stand out tune on the CD, which Lee said was a thrill to record, is the tune “Nostalgia”, which features Jonathon Tyrell of the Ketch Harbour Wolves on vocals key and synthesizer. The tune represents more of the current kind of sound that Lee said that he has begun to explore- “more minor keyed,

mid-tempo flavourings but still with a kind of groove to it.” Lee said Nostalgia represents what both musicians feel about their rural upbringings and the feeling of missing those surroundings when you leave them. As far as challenging himself, Lee said the album posed opportunities to raise his personal musical bar. An example can be heard on the track “Eyes On Me”, sung to perfection by Hartington’s Bellfonix crooner Heather Bell. Lee said the song challenged him in that he wrote the instrumental parts in different time signatures and played most of them himself. As far as the CD’s title “By Design or By Desire”, Lee said that that both D-words applied to the making of this CD. “The desire to make a second installment was really a no-brainer. When musician friends you really admire come calling to record with you, the answer has to be yes.” As far as “By Design” goes, Lee added that some of the musical design came from an intention to replicate some of the sounds he was weaned on as a young musician. In “Save the Humans”, which features Shaun Weima on vocals, the goal from the outset was to recreate that typical ‘80s-sounding keyboard and guitar, typical of bands like the Police. “That song is an example of how we collaborated together

t was a sell out crowd for the Dardanelles on Saturday night, Nov. 10 at the Crossroads Pub in the Sharbot Lake Country Inn, and the band did not disappoint the crowd, delivering a modern, high energy take on traditional Newfoundland music that had members of the audience stomping their feet, and in some cases, dancing in the aisles. Sandra White, of the Country Inn, was pleasantly surprised by the crowd since the band had only been booked at the last minute. The hotel staff did not have much chance to rest after the rousing performance by the Dardanelles, as they had to prepare for a long since sold out dinner concert by The Once, also from Newfoundland, on the following night.

econd only to saffron, vanilla is the most expensive spice on the planet. The orchids from which vanilla is harvested must be labouriously pollinated by hand. The pods take six to nine months to grow, they’re hand harvested, then they must be repeatedly processed and finally cured to bring out their rich vanilla flavour. It takes between 3 and 5 pounds of fresh pods to produce a single pound of cured vanilla beans, and can take up to 40 days to cure after the initial processing. So in much of the world, artificial vanilla extract, which is 100 times less expensive, is widely used. But the real deal is pretty hard to imitate. Some of the flavour compounds in vanilla are readily synthesized – vanillin, for example – but the artificial flavouring will taste flat without the complex floral notes that characterize natural vanilla. One compound that’s typically added to improve it is called linalool. In nature, linalool contributes the floral quality to many herbs and spices we’re well acquainted with, including basil, bay, lavender, thyme, cardamom, cinnamon and ginger. It adds a fragrant richness and depth of flavour that comes close to – but can’t equal – vanilla naturally made. This recipe comes courtesy of Shari Salole, who has fond childhood memories of the fudge her mother used to make. Though her mother passed down the recipe, Shari was never able to replicate the results and she finally gave up. Then, keen to spoil a fudgeloving friend, she went out to the Internet to find another recipe. This one came with rave reviews for being simple to make – no temperature-taking, no hand beating – and the result was outstanding. Everyone who tasted it claimed it was the best fudge they’d ever had. Well, Shari gave me a taste of it and I absolutely concur. It was off-the-charts wonderful. This fudge is impossibly, meltingly, deliciously rich. The butter acts as the carrier for the vanilla flavour, and I swear you taste every molecule, so use the good stuff. Out of kindness for the waistlines of your friends, only make this when there are lots of people around to share it. With Christmas just around the corner, you might cut into small squares and present it in those colourful little foil candy cups. That way, at least you’d know by the empty wrappers how many you’ve had! Don’t be tempted to use regular butter in place of the unsalted. Unsalted butter has a fresher, sweeter taste that makes the fudge that much more delicious. And besides, it’s only once a year, right? Bon appétit!


Makes one 9x11-inch pan (Prep time: 45 minutes; chill overnight) Butter a 9x11-inch pan. Line with parchment paper or foil. Butter that and set aside. In a medium saucepan, combine 2 c. light brown sugar; 5 fluid oz. Carnation evaporated milk (i.e. 1/2 c. plus 2 tbsp.) and 1 c. unsalted butter. Bring to a full boil over medium heat; reduce the heat slightly (no lower than medium-low) and boil for an additional 10 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and stir in 2 c. icing sugar and 1 tsp. vanilla. Transfer the mixture to stand mixer (or use a hand mixer) and beat the fudge on medium speed until thick and glossy – about 3 minutes. Fold in 1 c. coarsely chopped walnuts (optional) and pour into the prepared pan. Let the mixture cool to room temperature, then cover tightly and refrigerate overnight. Slice the fudge into 1-inch squares (or smaller) and serve. Fudge can be stored at room temperature in an airtight container. Variation: For Maple Walnut Fudge, substitute 1/2 tsp. each vanilla and maple extract for the vanilla.

Pineview Free Methodist Church 40th Anniversary P erseverance begins with a vision, and a vision begins with a dream, and a dream begins with an idea. Pineview was an idea -a dream and a vision of several people who were not satisfied that Cloyne and area did not have a Free Methodist church. Because of this spiritual reality some members of Cloyne who gathered together first in Vennachar Free Methodist Church, then moved to the Barrie Township Hall in 1965 under the leadership of the Rev. W.R. Lohnes, knew there was something lacking in this community to meet their spiritual needs and the spiritual needs of our community as well. This small group of devoted Free Methodists had great faith. The original members were Aileen Ball, Wilma Brown-

North Frontenac Council - Nov. 13 by Jeff Green

Meeting schedule altered – At the request of Township Clerk Jenny Duhamel, there will be changes to the meeting schedule in 2013. Starting on January 14, meetings will be held every third Monday throughout the year. Currently meetings are held every second and fourth Monday of the month. They will start at 9 am instead of the current time, 1 pm, and they will all be held at the Clar-Mill fire hall, which is located on the same property as the township office. The practice of holding meetings at the Harlowe, Snow Road, Ompah, and Barrie Halls between April and October will be stopped. “If we do have a major issue on the table that is of concern in one particular district, we can always move that meeting to another hall,” said Mayor Clayton, as Council voted to accept the new schedule. “It is in the interest of staff to hold the meetings every three weeks, for their scheduling,” he added, “and as I’ve said before it is really the staff that run the township, but they do tolerate a little interference from Council." No logo, but new signage gets the nod As part of her report from the Economic Development Task Force, Councillor Betty Hunter presented the rough draft of a new township logo. In place of intertwined hands symbolizing the coming together of former townships into North Frontenac, the proposed logo includes a stylized NF and some imagery representing the night skies initiative.

lee, William Brownlee, Allan Kay, Donna Kay and Marjorie Wise, and faithful others who were committed to the cause. One day the treasurer noticed an envelope marked "Building Fund" with $5 in it, and stated, “We don’t have a building fund.” Allan Kay responded, “We do now.” That was in 1969, the beginning of Pineview Free Methodist Church. The next step was to find a piece of property and purchase it. A piece of crown land was selected - 330 feet at $2 per foot, which came to a whopping $660!! There was a down payment of $25 placed on the table. The Ministry of Lands and Forests wanted it paid in full and a building needed to be built within two years. A 10-year mortgage of $51,000 had to be taken out. In June of 1971 they turned the sod, which was 40 feet further south than the original plan had stated. The architect and builder wanted to save a pine tree on the north side of the property, so the building was moved. Within a few years lightning damaged the tree (more of this significance later). They held their first service on the third weekend of November 1972! Then came another vision. Mr. Allan Kay had faith to see what the future could hold for Pineview. He knew God had bigger plans for Cloyne and our local area, for He never ceases to have ideas, dreams, and visions of what Pineview “could be”. Once again plans were drawn up, and once again money was being placed in a building fund account, accumulating until it was needed. Over the years whenever anyone suggested making changes or improvements to the existing church, Allan Kay would be heard, "Wait until we build our expansion.” Some became frustrated until one man said, ”What’s stopping us from building? ... Let’s get started.” Bruce Kellar picked up the baton and ran with it! There was no slowing him down once he got hold of it. In 1995 the church began to raise funds for the expansion.

There was already $155,000 in the building account and it was estimated it was going to cost a little less than $350,000 to build. They obtained a mortgage of $176,000 to enable them to begin building in the fall of 1999! Originally it was thought that this money was only enough to build a shell. But by the time they had finished they had built the whole expansion project. In January of 2000 they were able to hold their first service. The volunteer work hours helped to reduce the cost of the hired contractor, who declared that the people of the community and church were so efficient that they managed to get more done than anyone had ever expected. Now back to the pine tree and the lightning story…. When it was first decided to build an expansion most of the plans were for the south side of the existing building. Then one design came in that suggested building to the north! Never before had anyone thought of going north, yet north was the ultimate site to build on. So if the original church had not been moved south by 40 feet they would not have been able to build the expansion that was needed. God knew what needed to be done, and had been in all the details all along. In September of 2011 the mortgage was paid in full!! Now Pineview is looking to what God has in store next. He has something awesome planned, for His word tells us in Jeremiah 29: 11-13, “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. You will see Me and find Me when you seek Me with all your heart.” This year, on November 17 & 18, Pineview will be celebrating 40 years of being a Free Methodist church to the people of the Land O’ Lakes area. Everyone is invited to join the celebrations on Saturday, at 7pm and again on Sunday at 11 am for a time of worship, music, and a much celebrated mortgage burning! Hope to see you all there.

Card of thanks

Thank You - Bartraw

We wish to thank our family, friends, and neighbors for making our 50th anniversary a very special evening. Special thanks to our son Troy, his wife Kim, our granddaughters Lilli and Rachel, and close friends, Sandra Simmons, and Judy Kingston, for organizing food, the Adam Knapp Band, and decorating the hall. It sure was a surprise! Thanks to all, for the gifts and cards. It will be a day we will always cherish and remember for the rest of our lives. Marilyn & Garry

North Frontenac - from pg. 11 “This is just a rough version. It will look a lot better once we get a graphic artist to work it out,” said Hunter. “I don’t see any reason to change it [the current logo],” said Mayor Bud Clayton. “I don’t think we like the new one,” said Councilor Gerry Martin. A motion to approve spending up to $1,000 for a graphic artist to finalise the new logo was defeated in a 3-3 vote. (Councilor Wayne Good was not at the meeting) Proposed promotional signage for Highway 506/509, which was prepared by sign maker Rodger MacMunn, was well received by Council. They approved a motion to seek bids to build the signs. If MacMunn gets the job, the artwork he did for it will be included. If he doesn’t, the township will owe him $250. FUNERAL SERVICES

Sharbot Lake Wellness Fair


hen Tracie Goodberry, the organizer of the recent Health and Wellness Fair in Sharbot Lake, was thinking about bringing the event back to life after a one-year hiatus, she decided that she would only do so if funding was made available to bring the event to a new level. When this valued support came to be, she was off and running. But it was not easy. Here’s how she describes setting up the event: “The insanity of the entire situation was in the timing. The application process for the Frontenac Community Futures Development Corpora-

Disorder gave him the exact tools needed to overcome this huge challenge. This curse brought him right to the edge, where the answers became obvious and clear. All he had to do was to embrace it and accept it… not fight it. Jeremy utilized the same energy it took to fight OCD, to face the ‘fear’ of what was happening to him and then, to move past it. In turn, he is now able to share his experience with thousands, in the hope of bettering the lives of others.” In order to make the fair a success, Tracie had to bring many other people on board. This was not always easy since, like her, people are already busy. “Entrepreneurs learn quickly that for every three times you

get the answer “no”, one “yes” will surface. That “yes” will be exactly what is needed; the perfect fit. Abraham Lincoln said it well, ‘We must try for there is absolutely no chance of success without trying.” In the end, the fair surpassed Tracie’s expectations. “A classic sense of small town community was displayed on the weekend of November 2, 3, and 4 in Sharbot Lake. All involved need be commended. If what was given freely indeed comes back ‘tenfold’, the Natural Wellness and Better Living Weekend of 2012 can definitely be deemed a true success,” she said.

Grandmother walking 800 km to Ottawa submitted by Lakeshore Coalition n November 6, grandmother Wendy Hoy, who left her work to tread on foot bringing a message to Ottawa about the risks associated with electromagnetic radio frequency (EMR) emissions such as those from cell phone towers, Wi-fi and Smart Meters, arrived in Sharbot Lake. The 57-yearold left her home in Port Franks ON September 20, motivated by the impending construction of a telecommunications tower in her own home town and a friend who was forced to quit working as an airline pilot due to electro-


Remnants of 1939 plane crash in North Frontenac

Last week we published a Remembrance Day article about this plane crash, which took the lives of two young airmen, George Olstead from Manitoba and and James Corbett from Nova Scotia, on October 14, 1939. Both men had joined the Royal Canadian Air Force in February of that year, and had completed their intermediate flying training at Camp Borden. At the time of the crash they were taking advanced training in Trenton. Several weeks ago, North Frontenac Fire Chief Steve Riddell (at right) led a group of interested people to the crash site on the shores of Cranberry Lake.

Central Frontenac Council - Nov 13 by Jeff Green eeking money from CP Rail: As part of his monthly report, Fire Chief Bill Young informed Council that Canadian Pacific has not yet paid the bill the department sent them for a fire that was started this past summer by a cargo train travelling on the line near Tichborne. “They keep asking for further information and when we send it to them, they ask for more. But I’m sure they’ll pay eventually,” said Young. “We are keeping on them about it.” “How much do they owe us?” asked Councilor Frances Smith. “$52,000” “Oh,” said Smith, “keep on them”. Young also reported that October was a quiet month for the department. There were 3 relatively minor fire calls, 2 vehicle accidents and 17 medical assists. The department was active in the local schools, assisting with fire drills and providing other educational programming. Public Works - Works Manager Mike Richardson reported that a new handrail will be installed at the bridge over the Arden Mill Pond. Last year, Quinte Conservation put in a new log system on the pond in order to manage the water flow, but the new system hindered public use of the bridge and was aesthetically unacceptable in one of the most picturesque locations in Arden. Quinte has agreed to make changes, and the design work has now been completed. “The results are quite good, in my view,” Richardson said. The project is slated to be completed by the end of the year. Central Frontenac has budgeted $15,000 for the design and construction work, and Richardson hopes that a portion of those funds will remain unspent or will be reimbursed by the Conservation Authority. Assessment question – There is one piece of waterfront property in Central



Frontenac that has seen its assessment drop, by a whopping 52%, but the tax savings will not go to a residential ratepayer. Rather, they will go to the Province of Ontario. As the result of a new method of assessing the value of provincial parks, the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) has dropped the value of a number of parks in Eastern Ontario, and increased the value of a number of others. In Central Frontenac, Sharbot Lake Provincial Park has seen its value drop from $1.74 million to $843,00, a drop of $900,000 in value, which will cost the township over $10,000 in lost revenue. Other local townships with decreases include: Tay Valley ($7.57 million to $5.19 million) and North Frontenac ($3.4 million to $2.6 million). Townships with increased assessment from provincial parks include: South Frontenac ($2.02 million to $2.63 million) Addington Highlands ($2.45 million to $3.52 million) and Stone Mills ($2.58 million to $4.17 million) Central Frontenac Treasurer Michael McGovern will contact MPAC for an explanation about the change. District 4 Santa Claus parade: It was confirmed that the Parham/Tichborne Santa Claus parade will take place on Sunday, December 2, starting at 1:00 pm. Plans for a night parade were prematurely presented to council last month, and the daytime parade will take place as usual this year. Hinchinbrooke PS to close at end of school year: There is an added urgency around the township’s need to find a new home for the Parham library, which is currently located in a portable at the side of Hinchinbrooke Public School. Councilor Guntensperger said he has been informed that whether or not the new K-12 school in Sharbot Lake is ready for students by September of 2013, Hinchinbrooke will be not be open. The township must find an alternate location for the library by June 30, 2013.

sensitivity. Many communities along her walking route have played host to Ms. Hoy, her dog Dasher and driver Judy Watt. While some towns have organized rallies, flash dance mobs and educational meetings for surrounding communities, others, like Oakville, Mississauga and Uxbridge, have held Town Hall meetings to discuss the issue of Telecommunications tower construction in their communities and the associated health risks with municipal council members and their MPs.

Limestone board taking low-key approach to labour unrest by Julie Druker ll questions to local high schools about the impact of labour actions that were taken this week by members of the Ontario Secondary School Teachers (OSSTF) Federation are being referred to the Limestone District School Board (LDSB). I had a chance to speak to communications officer Karen Smith and Andre Labrie, superintendent of Human Resources, both with the LDSB, on Monday November 12. They talked about the sanctions that the OSSTF had begun implementing on that date. The sanctions have resulted in the withdrawal of administrative services by OSSTF members. Staff are not attending any after-school staff meetings nor any boardestablished meetings during school hours, and have withdrawn from certain specifically assigned supervisions such as those that involve covering for an absent colleague. School staff, however, will continue to teach, mark work, report and evaluate students in the class. Ms. Smith said that because the actions taken so far by members of the OSSTF are administrative in nature, the students have not been negatively affected. “The fact that teachers are not withdrawing instructional time, nor in most cases extra curriculars, shows that the union is focusing on things that will not adversely affect student learning or safety. We are reassured that the unions are making their decisions with stu-


dent safety and learning in mind. It is one of our objectives at this time to continue to meet and negotiate with the unions and to come to a collective agreement as soon as possible.” Andre Labrie added that things appeared to be proceeding in a positive light, with talks continuing. He highlighted the fact that the dispute in reality is between members of the OSSTF and the provincial government, not the school board and added, “The particular issue that the unions are unhappy with is at the government level which makes it a bit difficult to predict what the outcome will be, and this is what makes it hard for us since we are obligated to follow the law that was laid out in Bill 115.” The stance taken by the Limestone Board

ATV run - continued from page 3 “Why?” asked Brian Moffitt. “Because of the environmental impact, the destruction of habitat, damage to the trail, that sort of thing,” said Hunter. “Twelve hundred people come here for the trail runs over two days,” Moffitt replied, “a small amount compared to the thousands of people who ride the trails over the entire year. The fact is that when people buy an ATV they don’t buy it to drive slowly. Yes, the runs cause ruts in the trail, but, but there are ruts being developed as we speak, as hunters drag deer out, as they set up their

differs from the one taken by a major board to the east of Limestone’s territory. The Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB) covers Lanark, Leeds and a Thousand Islands and communities south of Ottawa all the way to the Quebec border. The UCDSB Board of Trustees have given administrative staff leave to lock out teachers and close schools if they become concerned with the safety of students. Greg Pietersma, chairman of the Upper Canada District School Board, told the Globe and Mail that the situation remains tenuous. “For the next few days we should be able to keep the schools open. We’ll be reviewing it on a day by day basis,” he said.

camps. You are not going to walk 100 kilometres on those trails. They are there for motorized use.” Deputy Fire Chief Denis Bedard, who was also at the council meeting, said that most of the trail that the ATVs run on is high and dry, and that there are bypasses for all of the lower, muddy parts. “I’d say about 75% of the riders used the bypass. We don’t market our events as mud runs,” Bedard said. Mayor Clayton said “I don’t think anybody on council is opposed to the run or the way you run it. The only thing we worry about, for your sake, is that you advertise in advance where the money you raise is going.” The firefighters’ association is working with township staff to develop a protocol for reporting on where the money they raise is donated.
