Three additional meetings have been set for the taxation policy review committee and a new deadline has been set for the end of June. Gary Scandlan, chair of the TPRC, met with Greater Napanee council Tuesday at its regular council meeting. His deputation was originally supposed to be for him to present his final recommendation to council, but instead he asked council for an extension for the TPRC. “We’re presenting this as an interim report because the committee is actually seeking the opportunity to have up to three more meetings in order to continue dialogue on the police matter,” Scandlan explained to council. Scandlan explained that at the committee’s ‘final’ meeting on March 30, Napanee OPP inspector Pat Finnegan met with the TPRC and said the OPP would be able to provide the committee with more information than initially expected. Scandlan said OPP costs have been the major debate for the TPRC and now with more information available, the committee felt it needed more time to decipher and debate the new information. Scandlan said after three more committee meetings he would present a final report and recommendation to council. The two-month extension does come at a cost. Charles McDonald, Greater Napanee director of operational audits and the TPRC staff member, presented a report to council detailing that the additional cost for the extension is $32,200. Watson and Associates has agreed to a 50/50 split of the amount between the association and the municipality, meaning the extension will cost the town $17,500, excluding HST.

Groups come together for annual community clean-up BY ASHLEY ESPINOZA Staff Reporter

Napanee’s Good Friends of the Earth planted another tree on Tuesday to raise awareness for next weekend’s community clean-up. The tree is located at Napanee’s skate park, near Springside Park. Each year Barry Robinson and the Good Friends of the Earth organize and plant a tree near the skate park before its annual community clean-up event. “The ‘Good Friends of the Earth’ are really all those organizations like the scouting movement, Women’s Institute with their pitch-inday, the 4-H Club, and horticultural and environmental groups who have been earth friendly for years. We’re merely the glue that pulls them along with some churches and schools and many caring individuals together,” said Robinson. Next Saturday’s clean-up begins at 9 a.m. at the Napanee Mall and lasts until noon. Individuals and small groups meet at the mall to gather supplies and then set out

Good Friends of the Earth. Robinson said the goal is to raise enough awareness that groups like the Good Friends of the Earth will no longer be needed – that individuals will simply think twice before tossing their garbage out the car window or leaving a bag of garbage in a ditch. “What on earth could possibly be more important than the water, soil and air that are inextricably connected to our very existence?

New speed measure installed

BY ADAM PRUDHOMME Staff Reporter

otorists driving into Napanee along County Road 8 will now have a friendly reminder to watch their speed, thanks to a donation from TransCanada and Lafarge. In an effort to keep the stretch of road in front of Southview Public School safe, the two companies teamed up to purchase a radar speed sign. It will clock the speed of drivers heading into town, displaying their speed in bright, large numbers. If they’re going above the 50kilometre speed limit, the numbers will blink and a strobe light will flash to remind them to slow down. The sign, which was installed several feet in front of Southview’s crosswalk, was officially unveiled on Tuesday and is now fully functioning. “We wanted to look ahead to how we could protect the community ahead of time,” said Napanee OPP Staff Sgt. Scott Semple, who noted the road has seen an increase in traffic due to the ongoing construction of the TransCanada Generating Station along the shores of Hwy. 33. “At one of the planning meetings we were talking about how we could get ahead of it and I had mentioned the (speed radar) sign… The committee included Lafarge, TransCanada, L&A County and Loyalist Township. It was a true collaborative effort to deal with

The new traffic signal on County Road 8 near Southview Public School shows motorists just how fast they’re going as they’re approaching the school. a community issue.” Altogether the companies team up to buy three radar signs: one for in front of Southview and one at each side of Bath along Hwy 33. The companies covered the cost of purchasing and installing the signs and will now donate them to L&A County. The goal is to remind all drivers, especially construction workers new to the area, that they are entering a residential area. Once the construction project is complete, the county will have the option to move the signs to another area they deem needs it more. “It’s visual, it’s meant to get people’s attention,” Sem-

ple said of the strobe light that activates if a driver is speeding. “A lot of people just seeing their speed up there, it sends a reminder to them if they’re over the speed limit.” Semple says he got the idea for the signs when he saw similar ones installed near the solar farm construction projects in Bath. “They really notice it as having an impact on people,” Semple said of speaking to residents in that area. “It really is bringing attention to the speed limits for that community. I think it’s a great thing and it’s doing a great job.” Though the sign won’t record license plates or issue

tickets to offending motorists, it will make note of the times of days that sees the most speeders. “We’re going to monitor how effective they are,” said Peter Webster, community relations co-ordinator with TransCanada. “We can record data from it and share that with the committee and see if there are other steps that we need to take (to help reduce speed).” Based on those numbers, the OPP can adjust their presence in the area.

Local drivers are going to be faced with some detours as the result of a large road reconstruction project planned for Bridge Street in Napanee. Work on the nearly one kilometre stretch from Belleville Road to Alma Street is slated to begin near the end of this month. That work is expected to last until October, says Steve Roberts, Manager of Roads and Bridges for the Lennox and Addington County. There are plans for new sidewalks/curbs and gutters as well as storm sewer and drainage upgrades within the construction area. There is also going to be a realignment of the intersection at Belleville Road and Bridge Street to allow for more of a 90-degree-angle junction. On top of that there are plans to initiate new traffic signal upgrades at the Centre Street and Bridge Street intersection, making for plenty of work to be done over the sixmonth period. L&A County council approved its portion of the project at its most recent regular meeting; K. Mulrooney Trucking Ltd was awarded the contract at just more than $1.6 million. The entire project, which includes watermain and sanitary sewer upgrades, is just under $2.5 million. Roberts said that drivers can expect some delays and that there will be detours throughout local roads in Napanee. However, he made it clear that the local residents and business are the main priority and making sure that they are accommodated throughout the construction process. Residents and business will receive an introductory notification from the construction company when the project begins. He said the work will proceed in stages. The construction will begin at the western end, starting at Belleville Road and then head east to Alma Avenue, Roberts said.. According to Roberts, this project has been on the longterm capital construction plan and has been discussed over the last five years. A meeting between the county and the construction company is set to take place sometime this week.

Naturalist putting people in touch with outdoors Terry Sprague to speak at L&A Museum

BY ADAM PRUDHOMME Staff Reporter

Drawing upon his 50 years of experience of guiding nature tours in Lennox and Addington, Quinte and much of eastern Ontario, field naturalist Terry Sprague will host an evening of stories and misadventures at the L&A County Museum on April 19. His talk, which is part of the museum’s ongoing Tuesday Night at the Museum series, will shed some light on what it means to be an interpretive naturalist. “When we’re on a hike it’s more than just identifying a flower or a bird,” said Sprague, who has led guided hikes through conservation areas across Prince Edward County and L&A both as a member of Quinte Conservation and under his own banner. “(I also look at) how it fits into the natural scheme of things, and why they are here and how they interconnect.” During Tuesday’s talk he’ll share stories of hiking and kayaking tours he’s guided over the decades and

Visit

share some of his tips for the best places to go hiking in this area. “Mostly (I will discuss) where I have taken people, some of the special places within the Napanee conservation area and watershed,” Sprague said of the topic of his presentation. “We’ll be touching on, as well, some of the humouros incidents that have happened along the way.” If Sprague’s name sounds familiar, it could be because his columns appeared in The Picton Gazette (and later, The Napanee Beaver) for the last half-century. He recently retired his weekly ‘Outdoor Ramblings’ column last year after having penned more than 2,600 of them. Along with his nature writings he has also worked for Sandbanks Provincial Park, Glenora Fisheries Research and Quinte Conservation. Though now retired, he still regularly leads guided tours both by land and by lake. “The question is, how do you retire from something that has been your life long interest for so many years?” he asked rhetorically.

Through his hikes and speaking engagements, he’s hoping to inspire the next generation to acquire the same love for nature he had when his teacher first introduced him to the joy of birdwatching. “I think that’s pretty important today, to get kids in particular, involved in nature,” said Sprague. “We’re losing it at such a rapid rate. I think that aspect of it is very important.” At the opposite end of the age spectrum, he’s had many seniors approach him over the years and say without his guided tour they’d probably never have taken a hike through a conservation area. “It was great to have that kind of a comment, that I’m providing a service for these older people,” added Sprague. He’s hoping to see audience members of all ages at his next presentation. Tuesday’s talk will get underway at 7 p.m. Tickets are $3 and will be sold at the door. The museum is located at 97 Thomas Street E in Napanee.

EDITORIAL

Big choices ahead for NDP Delegates at the annual NDP convention this weekend sent shockwaves through the Canadian political landscape in voting to jettison leader Thomas Mulcair. That he wouldn’t survive the leadership review wasn’t a total surprise — he said he’d need a 70 per cent endorsement to stay on — but the fact that he failed to win even 50 per cent support was certainly unexpected. We’re at a bit of a loss as to why the NDP were so eager to change leaders. As we said in this space a few months ago, we thought that Mulcair still gave the NDP the best chance to improve their seat totals in the next federal election. And, yes, that’s despite the fact that the Liberals leapfrogged them (and the Conservatives) to seize a majority government in the last election. Clearly, more than half of the NDP delegates at the convention feel differently, that somebody else leading the party into the next federal vote will better serve them. Maybe that’s the case, but we’re not at all sure who that ‘somebody’ might be. While the NDP has a good number of competent MPs in the house — and even a few who were toppled by Liberals in the last election — who might be counted on to revive the NDP’s fortunes, none of them seem like they’d be an improvement over Mulcair, who proved himself to be an effective opposition politician — and he brings with him some experience in government to boot. That’s the first problem. The second is the fact that the NDP seem to be in the middle of a fundamental crisis. That’s not a huge surprise, given the disappointing electoral showing. However, the party is being pulled in two very different directions. One side wants to maintain the centrist approach adopted by the party under Mulcair’s leadership. The other side wants the lurch to the left — the LEAP manifesto making the rounds in the party would see the NDP (and, if they ever became the government, the country) taking a radically different direction. There has been no shortage of predictions that, should the NDP decide to take a more ‘leftward’ swing, they’ll all but dash any hope of the party ever coming close to actually winning the reins of government. Those predictions may well be right — particularly if the left-leaning direction of the current Trudeau Liberal government fails to impress voters, who in turn may be looking for a conservative correction rather than taking a look at the NDP. Whichever direction they choose — stick with the centrist ‘Mulcairesque’ path or a more radical vision — the next leader will be the one who’ll be primarily responsible for selling it to voters. It will be interesting to see if the NDP choose to do some tweaking, or if there’s an overhaul in store.

I listened to the audio version and enjoyed the two speakers who brought all of the characters to life.” “The Forgetting Time follows two people lives: single mother Janie Zimmerman and an aging doctor of psychology by the name of Jerome Anderson. “These two stories seem very different and separate at first. Janie is trying to deal with her four-year-old son Noah being difficult. He mentions facts about things he has seemingly never learned about and has an extremely large fear of water of any kind.

Letter to the Editor

Leave tax differential where it is Re letter: ‘Tax-policy divide has been a distraction too long’, Napanee Beaver, April 7, 2016. In the above letter, it is stated that “finding a consensus has not been easy,” and I would like to point out to the letter writer that a consensus has not been found. The definition of consensus is ‘an idea or opinion that is shared by all the people in a group’ (MerriamWebster Dictionary). Not all

members of the group share Mr. Hogle’s opinions. He further states that municipalities in Ontario are facing many financial difficulties. I can’t see how this applies to Greater Napanee as there is close to $15 million sitting in a reserve account; for what purpose, I don’t know. I do know that the town wants to raise taxes this year and it appears they are targeting the rural residents again.

Why a tax increase when we have so much in reserves? I agree with Mr. Hogle that squabbles over taxation policy have been going on too long. If he would stop bringing it up, then we could all get along much better. Leave the tax policy where it is. It’s fair as it stands. If anyone in the urban area thinks their taxes are too high, they can move to the rural part of Greater Napanee and experience life as it

should be and save some money on taxes. They’ll likely complain that the services aren’t as good though. Remember the 43 per cent tax reduction you urban people received in the year 2000? Imagine, if you can, the tax increases rural people received at the same time. And you want more? Give it a rest. John Dennis, Greater Napanee

Canadians voted for real change, and Budget 2016 is an important part of fulfilling that promise. Families in Hastings-Lennox and Addington will benefit from this budget. Our new tax-free Canada Child Benefit will lift almost 300,000 kids nation-wide out of poverty, including countless local children. Did you know that our region has one of the highest levels of child poverty in Canada at twice the provincial average, according to our local Poverty Roundtable? This is a signature piece of legislation to combat local poverty and I could not be more proud. Families who benefit from the CCB will see an average of $2,300 more per year, tax free. That’s much-needed help for families, whether it’s used for putting kids into an arts or sports program, new supplies for school, or food on the table. The middle class in our riding will benefit from this budget. We all know that when the middle class is doing well, our country is doing well. But, it’s been too long since the middle class got the support it needs. Our tax cut for the middle-income earners will put

more money in people’s pockets to support local economies! Seniors in our riding, especially those on a fixed income, will benefit from this budget. We are putting the retirement age for Old Age Security and Guaranteed Income Supplement back to 65, and we are increasing by 10 per cent the GIS for low-income seniors, which will put additional much-needed money in the pockets of 900,000 seniors across Canada and the more than eight per cent of seniors in this riding who still live below the poverty line. Our seniors built this country, and it is our duty to see that they have the security in retirement that they deserve. Municipalities in our riding will benefit from this budget. We know that municipalities shoulder a heavy burden, and they need help. A new application intake for the Building Canada Fund will start this spring, since there is $9 billion of remaining funding nationwide that can be used for infrastructure such as roads and bridges. In terms of new programs, Phase 1 of our infrastructure plan will invest an additional $11.9 billion to improve water and wastewater systems, expand affordable housing, and protect infrastructure systems from the effects of climate change. In its March media release the Federation of

Canadian Municipalities applauded our budget which marks a new era of federal-municipal partnership and which stands to transform communities. As chair of National Rural Caucus, I have communicated the unique needs of rural Canada to our government, and they are listening. I am proud to report that a significant proportion of this new infrastructure funding will go to rural Canada, as well as an additional $500 million dollars in funding to improve broadband internet access in rural Canada. I also heard from small municipalities — like the ones we have in our riding — that it is difficult to compete with the larger municipalities who have more money and human resources to put together applications. Our government is listening, and now $50 million has been set aside to help small communities with their asset management plans. My team welcomes your continuing engagement in helping us develop solutions to our local and national challenges. We want to hear your thoughts, and we will always be happy to answer your questions. Mike Bossio, MP, Hastings-Lennox and Addington Chair, National Rural Caucus

A trip through the pages of The Napanee Beaver 50 Years Ago April 13, 1966

n A 20-man railway crew, with a 250-ton heavy crane from Belleville, spent Good Friday lifting a passenger car back onto the tracks on the Canadian National Railway in Napanee. The train car had left the tracks while it was being shunted to another train. Although there were passengers in the Ottawa-destined coach, no one was injured when the car derailed. Main line traffic, however, was held up for four hours while the railway crew worked to return the car to the track. Other trains were re-routed to avoid the area. n Organizers of the Easter Parade in Napanee said the event was a succes. The parade featured horse-drawn carriages, antique cars and “fashionably-clad women in convertibles.” The Jaycees, who organized the parade, said they hoped to make it an annual event. Weather that day, however, didn’t exactly co-operate. Cloudy skies, drizzle and cool winds greeted parade participants and spectators. Nevertheless, the parade appeared to be well-received by local residents.

30 Years Ago April 16, 1986

n A week after learning a Deseronto company would be expanding its operations and hiring more workers, Napanee learned that one of its manufacturers would be conducting significant layoffs. Emerson Electric Ltd. announced that it would be laying off 106 workers. The layoffs were the result of an ongoing strike at Inglis, an appliance manufacturer in Toronto. The company told workers that were laid off that it was unclear how long the work stoppage would last. The Emerson plant employed 375 people. n In another ‘bad news’ business development, it was announced that the L. Davis Textile plant would be closing its doors. As a result, 45 people would be out of work. Representatives from the company, which specialized in the manufacture of infant and child sleepware, said that imported clothing in the marketplace was making it difficult to stay afloat. “We have been building inventory in hopes of an upward swing but, unfortunately, the market has not developed, and it is just no longer feasible to operate a third plant,” the Toronto-based company said in a statement following the closure notice.

New craft brewery (almost) on tap in Napanee The Napanee Brewing Company opening soon BY SETH DUCHENE Editor

Later this spring, Lennox and Addington County’s budding brewing industry is about to double in size. Geordan Saunders — a longtime, award-winning homebrewer who’s been methodically working towards starting his own brewery — hopes to open The Napanee Beer Company in time for the May 24 weekend. In doing so, he’ll become Napanee’s first brewery, and join Bath’s MacKinnnon Brothers Brewing as the only two craft breweries in L&A county. His location on Milligan Lane in Napanee’s industrial park has been a buzz of activity as the brewhouse is installed and the retail area and office space are built. Saunders’ journey towards operating his own craft brewery had humble beginnings. Just more than four years ago — after stumbling on the realization that it was even possible to brew beer at home — he got his first homebrewing kit from his wife as a Christmas present. As he stood over the stove to make his first batch, the ‘plan’ took root. “I looked to my wife and said, ‘this is what I’m going to do for the rest of my life — I’m going to make beer,’” Saunders recalled, adding that his wife greeted the suggestion with an eye-roll. “It took about six months

for her to realize, ‘oh, he’s serious… I think he means this,’” he said. And so it began. “Almost since the beginning of my brewing career, at least for the last three years, everything I’ve done has been with this (opening a brewery) in mind,” he said. “Any recipe I’ve developed or I’ve worked on perfecting has been put through the lens of, ‘can I brew this commercially? Is it cost-effective? Will people like it at scale? Is it something I can do long term?’” Saunders says he has whittled those recipes down to four different beers he says will form the basis of his brewery — a German black lager, an American premium lager, a Belgian India pale ale and a Belgian pale ale. He has already brewed all the beers under ‘commercial’ conditions to ensure they can be brewed at a larger scale, and the beers have won their fair share of brewing awards along the way. The Napanee Brewing Company is emerging as the landscape for craft brewing in the province is quickly changing. The provincial government has made several regulatory changes to assist the industry, including allowing for the sale of craft beer in Ontario grocery stores; over the next few years, more and more supermarkets will have shelf space for beer — including a certain percentage set aside

for Ontario craft beers. For Saunders, he says he hopes to sell most of his beer right out of the storefront, along with kegs to various local watering holes. He says he’ll eventually do more ‘third-party’ retailing, but not until the brewery is on solid footing. Along the way, Saunders says he has received plenty of support, including from people who are already involved in commercial craft brewing. “It’s a great industry. It’s a really collegial industry,” he said. He said that the L&A Economic Development and the Prince Edward-Lennox and Addington Community Futures Development Corporation have also lent a helping hand. “The PELACFDC, I got a grant from them, which was a huge help, I could not have done it without them,” said Saunders. “(L&A County Director of Community and Development Services) Stephen Paul and (L&A County Business Development Officer) Tracey Snow have been tirelessly working with me on this.” Although a measure of success will be how much beer he sells, Saunders says he also hopes the brewery is a ‘net-positive’ for the community as a whole. The name ‘The Napanee Beer Company’ is a natural advertiser for the town, he adds. “It’s going to say ‘Napanee’ right on the tap,” he said. “People are going to ask for a ‘Napanee beer.’”

Fight against impaired driving continues OPP adjust tactics to tackle drunk drivers, while prevention efforts hammer message home BY REBA PENNELL

Special to the Beaver Impaired driving has taken a toll here and across Canada. Recent local cases are a reminder that the problem still remains. Just two weekends ago Napanee OPP had their hands full with three impaired driving arrests. Not surprisingly, the spike in charges normally takes place Friday and Saturday nights, according to Constable Scott Woodburn, Traffic Management Officer for the Napanee OPP. However, he also says that, overall, the local OPP are laying more impaired driving charges. “We have noticed a slight increase over the last couple of years, but I think that is more related to our pro-active actions going after and targeting and finding impaired drivers,” said Cst. Woodburn. Over a four-year period, police in Canada reported 793 incidents of impaired driving that resulted in death. Out of the 793 incidents, 135 were reported in Ontario, about 17 per cent. Ontario had the third highest number of incidents,

The re-creation of an impaired driving situation, coupled with the messages from those directly affected by an impaired driving situation, makes for a very emotional and powerful situation. The emotional response from the students during high school presentations is easy to see in their faces, according to Souranis. “You can feel the emotion and really see how attentive the students are to the message. So I guess we think that the message is out there and they are getting it but unfortunately we are seeing, again, going back to drugs, we aren’t quite sure the message is hitting home about impairment by marijuana use.

Ex-Bowie backup headlines upcoming local show BY ASHLEY ESPINOZA Staff Reporter

Next week Napanee welcomes internationally renowned singer/songwriter Emm Gryner, along with London Ont. artist Sarah Smith, to perform as part of the Starstop Concert Series. Gryner’s music ranges from emotional, powerful songs to eclectic and inspiring. She has released more than 15 albums over her two decades in the industry. At the age of 24 she became a member of David Bowie’s touring band, landing her networking opportunities from people across the globe. Gryner said being able to collaborate with so many dynamic artists, ranging from Bowie to Rob Zombie to Matt Nathanson, has allowed her to continually grow as an artist. “I really learn a lot

every time I collaborate with someone. The most famous person was when I sang in David Bowie’s band. To learn his songs, he’s got a range of material that’s hard to classify, but when you learn someone else’s songs you really get to see the complexities of the arrangements,” said Gryner. She said collaborating both through performing and through song writing has helped her to learn and develop her music into what it is today. “I really do love to collaborate with people. Writing has always been really personal to me. I was never a person who set out to write big pop songs with other people but I do find that fun too,” said Gryner. “Every situation is unique.” Gryner said that for her, writing is a way to better communicate herself and to work through difficult situ-

ations. “Mostly, writing comes from a place of not being able to verbalize what’s going on. Actually, a lot of it comes from a place of loneliness where you don’t really have your best friend to call up or something’s going on with someone who is really important to you and you just don’t have that ear. Music becomes a way of getting through it,” Gryner said. “It’s all usually written about my own experiences so it tends to be very emotional but it ranges from sort of emotional, piano stuff to pop songs,” she added. Gryner said next week’s performance will be a mix of covers and her own work from throughout her career, including songs from her most recent live album. “A lot of people say that they like my records but they love my live show.

you try not to. It involves a little bit more rehearsal. Whereas when you’re overdubbing it’s kind of more mental, you’re sort of piecing things together. I think doing it the way I did it has more heart in it,” said Gryner. On top of her excitement to perform, Gryner said she is a big fan of Sarah Smith and can’t wait to share the stage with her. “I’m so excited to perform with Sarah. We’re doing three shows together and this is one of them. She’s a person I would buy tickets to go see so it’s pretty awesome for me to get to do these shows with her,”

Gryner said. Smith worked for years with the Canadian rock band The Joys, before going solo in 2012. While Smith’s first solo album, Stronger Now, highlights her powerful voice in pop and rock genres, her second album, The Journey, is filled with optimism and heart. Gryner and Smith will be performing at Ellena’s Café next Thursday as part of the Starstop Concert Series. Tickets are $20 each and available at Ellena’s Café, Marie’s Place, and online at www.starstop.ca. For more information on Gryner visit: www.emmgryner.com.

10 Home Maintenance Tips for Spring fter a long, dark winter, spring's bright sun and warm winds are, well, a breath of fresh air. The only downside?

Examine Roof Shingles Examine roof shingles to see if any were lost or damaged during winter. If your home has an older roof covering, you may want to start a budget for replacement. The summer sun can really damage roof shingles. Shingles that are cracked, buckled or loose or are missing granules need to be replaced. Flashing around plumbing vents, skylights and chimneys need to be checked and repaired by a qualified roofer. Probe the Wood Trim Use a screwdriver to probe the wood trim around windows, doors, railings and decks. Make repairs now before the spring rains do more damage to the exposed wood. Check the Gutters Check for loose or leaky gutters. Improper drainage can lead to water in the basement or crawl space. Make sure downspouts drain away from the foundation and are clear and free of debris. Use Compacted Soil Low areas in the yard or next to the foundation should be filled with compacted soil. Spring rains can cause yard flooding, which can lead to foundation flooding and damage. Also, when water pools in these low areas in summer, it creates a breeding ground for insects. Inspect the Concrete Inspect concrete slabs for signs of cracks or movement. All exterior slabs except pool decks should drain away from the home's foundation. Fill cracks with a concrete crack filler or silicone caulk. When weather permits, power-wash and then seal the concrete.

MARACLE’S 5” SEAMLESS

Check Outside Faucets Check outside hose faucets for freeze damage. Turn the water on and place your thumb or finger over the opening. If you can stop the flow of water, it is likely the pipe inside the home is damaged and will need to be replaced. While you're at it, check the garden hose for dry rot. Service the AC Unit Have a qualified heating and cooling contractor clean and service the outside unit of the air conditioning system. Clean coils operate more efficiently, and an annual service call will keep the system working at peak performance levels. Change interior filters on a regular basis. Check Power Equipment Check your gas- and battery-powered lawn equipment to make sure it is ready for summer use. Clean equipment and sharp cutting blades will make yardwork easier. Deck and porches: Check all decks, patios, porches, stairs, and railings for loose members and deterioration. Open decks and wood fences need to be treated every 4-6 years, depending on how much exposure they get to sun and rain. If the stain doesn't look like it should or water has turned some of the wood a dark grey, hire a deck professional to treat your deck and fence. Window and door screens: Clean screening and check for holes. If holes are bigger than a quarter, that is plenty of room for bugs to climb in. Patch holes or replace the screen. Save bad screen to patch holes next year. Tighten or repair any loose or damaged frames and repaint. Replace broken, worn, or missing hardware. Wind can ruin screens and frames if they are allowed flap and move so make sure they are securely fastened. Tighten and lubricate door hinges and closers.

Tips for safer renovations ome renovation projects vary in scope. Something as simple as repainting a bedroom counts as a renovation project, as does a full kitchen remodel. But no matter how big or small a project, homeowners’ top priority should always be safety. Before beginning a project, make a list of possible hazards and how to avoid them. Here are some potential dangers that can spring up. • Asbestos: Many homes built when asbestos was legal still contain asbestos materials. Asbestos has been used in many applications, such as in ceiling materials, insulation, siding, and more. That’s because asbestos is flame retardant and serves as an effective and inexpensive insulator. However, asbestos fibers released into the air during renovations can cause respiratory problems and even lead to lung cancer. Asbestos needs to be removed under specific guidelines and disposed of properly. Disposal typically requires hiring a professional service. • Dust and dirt: Sanding, sawing, welding, and other home renovation tasks can cast debris into the air. Ventilation may be needed to maintain clean, breathable air. Ventilation can also shuttle any harmful fumes generated from construction materials outside of the home. Do-it-yourselfers should wear masks and eye protection to guard themselves against debris. • Electrical lines: All homes may not have been built in adherence to modern-day codes. Electric lines can be discovered where they are least expected. When doing demolition or drilling/nailing into walls, it’s not uncommon to come across electrical wires. Extra caution needs to be taken, and an electrician should be consulted if the wires need to be relocated. • Chemicals: Chemicals, such as sealants, cleaners, lubricants, and fuel, may be used during renovation projects. Such substances can be dangerous to pets and children if they are touched or accidentally ingested. Exercise extreme caution when using chemical products, making sure all product containers are sealed and kept out of reach when not in use. • Tools: Cuts, abrasions, burns and more can result when power tools and even manual tools are used incorrectly. Learn how to use tools before beginning a project, and always put tools away when work is done for the day. • Falls: Falls are a leading cause of household injury, and the chance of a fall may increase when climbing ladders during home improvement projects. Don’t climb beyond where indicated on ladders and always have a spotter on hand when climbing is necessary. Wear harnesses, sturdy footwear and gloves as well.

B E A V E R SPRING HOME IMPROVEMENT / 17

Tackle spring cleaning with the environment in mind pring is a time of year when many people resolve to give their homes or apartments a thorough cleaning. Spring cleaning projects help people revitalize their homes for the warm months ahead, when windows are once again opened, fresh air pervades homes and items that might have accumulated over a dark and dreary winter have become a distant memory. Many families have spring cleaning rituals that allow them to efficiently clean their homes in a single weekend. But it's just as important for spring cleaners to place as great an emphasis on the environment as they do on efficiency when cleaning a home. Eco-friendly spring cleaning practices produce less waste and rely on less chemicals to rejuvenate a home and get it ready for those seasons when huddling inside under the covers takes a backseat to lounging around the house as fresh air washes into the home. The following are a handful of ways to efficiently clean a home while also protecting the environment. * Clear out the clutter. Clutter is an enemy to homeowners and the environment alike. That's because addressing clutter is often an inefficient process in which homeowners methodically go through items that have accumulated over the years, individually choosing which items to keep and which items to discard. Clutter can also prove harmful to the environment because rooms filled with clutter tend to collect dust, reducing air quality and leading to more indoor air pollution that can prove harmful to human health. When sifting through clutter in a home, discard those items that have gone ignored for years, as they likely have little or no financial value and it's safe to assume they serve no practical purpose as well. Once clutter has been cleared out, prevent more of it from accumulating by making a conscious effort to discard items once they no longer serve any practical purpose. This includes old newspapers and magazines, as well as any other items that are likely to sit in a pile or on a shelf for months on end. Preventing the buildup of clutter reduces the amount of time you need to spend spring cleaning next year while also improving indoor air quality.

* Use cleaners only when windows are open. Many people get a head start on spring cleaning in late winter, when the weather might have started to warm up but has not yet warmed to the point when windows throughout the home can be opened. Though there's nothing wrong with starting early, avoid using cleaning products on days when you can't open the windows. Many cleaning products contain ample or even just trace amounts of chemicals that can compromise indoor air quality and may exacerbate existing medical conditions like respiratory ailments. When using cleaning products, try to do so only when the windows are open and fresh air can enter the home. * Ensure appliances are working at peak efficiency. Spring cleaning is a great time to inspect appliances to make sure they are operating efficiently. Clean or replace filters on window air conditioning units. Dusty or dirty filters will force the air conditioner to work harder and use more energy to cool a room. In addition, dirty or dusty filters make units less efficient, which means rooms won't cool as quickly on those scorching summer afternoons. Appliances forced to work harder also cost more money, and those costs can be considerable. When checking appliances, be sure to check the refrigera-

tor as well. Refrigerators are plugged in all day long, and those that are not operating at peak efficiency can cost you a lot of money in the long run. Periodically clean the coils on the back of your refrigerator so it can operate more efficiently, saving energy and money. Vacuum cleaners should also be inspected before each use to make sure reels are not covered in hair, which can make it nearly impossible for the machine to collect dirt and dust from the floors. * Use reusable cloths. Another way to turn spring cleaning into a more eco-friendly affair is to forgo using paper towels in favor of reusable cloths. Reusable wash cloths can be just as effective at wiping down counters as paper towels, which require more and more trees to be cut down and eventually end up in landfills. If you are feeling especially eco-friendly, you can go the extra mile and create your own reusable cleaning cloths out of old clothes or linens, saving you money and making use of items that might otherwise have been headed straight for a landfill. Spring cleaning can rejuvenate a home after a long winter. Emphasizing eco-friendly techniques when cleaning can ensure your home's revival is as beneficial to the environment as it is to the home's inhabitants.

Hometown Market nearly set to return BY ADAM PRUDHOMME Staff Reporter

Greater Napanee’s Hometown Market is set to return for another outdoor season, starting May 14 and running every other week through Oct. 15. Featuring local farmers and artists, the outdoor market will once again set up shop outside Greater Napanee’s town hall. “Each week includes a theme as well as a local entertainer,” said Megan Smith, economic development co-ordinator with Greater Napanee. “The first kick-off day is May 14, and (that week’s theme) is the Horticultural Society’s plant sale.” Other themes will be Craft Kids Bonanza (May 28), the Riverfront Festival (June 11), Splish, Splash, Water Bash (June 25), Farm Fresh Frenzy (July 9), Summer Sizzler and Cool Treats (July 23), Carnival Cre-

ations (Aug. 6), Amazing Animal Day (Aug. 20), Dance, Dance Revolution (Sept. 3), Touch the Trucks (Sept. 17), Honey, Honey (Oct.1) and Falling Into Nature (Oct. 15). “It’s a little switch from last year but still along the same lines of being familyorientated,” said Smith. Local entertainers will also have a chance to market themselves, playing for a couple of hours on stage while shoppers browse the vendor tables. Though their lineup of entertainment and themes are set, they are still actively seeking vendors who wish to purchase seasonal or one day permits. The cost for the season is $120, which amounts to $10 per market day. Those who want to buy a one day permit can do so for $15. For the June 11 market they’ll have extra space as they will shift from Market Square to Conservation Park so they’ll be right in the heart of the River-

front Festival. Vendors must provide their own table and canopy if they require shelter. Smith says it’s a testament to the success of the market that so many vendors are willing to return year after year. “We’ll have a really good selection and a couple of new vendors, which is awesome,” said Smith. Also returning this year is the Market Moola program. Held on the last market Saturday of the month, town staff will be offering $5 vouchers for the market to the first 30 shoppers to fill out their research survey. The data will help them track how far the shoppers are coming to visit the market and how they heard about it. Vendors interested in taking part in the market can contact Smith at 613354-3351 ext. 2017, e-mailing Msmith@greaternapanee.com or visiting 12 Market Sq. in Napanee.

TLC dress show star part of bridal gala BY ASHLEY ESPINOZA Staff Reporter

When it comes to picking the perfect wedding dress, nobody compares to the expertise offered by TLC’s Say Yes to the Dress star Randy Fenoli — and he’ll be in the region next month for Serendipity Studios’ South Eastern Ontario Wedding Awards Gala. For years Jen Fitzpatrick, of Serendipity Studios, has planned an annual bridal event in Napanee offering local businesses and future brides an opportunity to mingle and network. This year Fitzpatrick decided to step it up a notch and invite Randy Fenoli to the event. With Randy headlining, Fitzpatrick decided to make the event region-wide and host it in Kingston. The first annual South Eastern Ontario Wedding Awards Gala is set for May 2 at the Italo-Canadian Club in Kingston. A pre-gala party will begin at 3:30, which will be similar to Napanee’s past annual gala events, followed by a catered dinner and awards ceremony to follow. “Randy is going to do the Champaign toast, a meetand-greet at the cocktail reception and then he’ll be going on stage after dinner in the second part of the event,” said Fitzpatrick. Meet-and-greet and photos with Randy Fenoli will be available between 3:30 and 6:30 p.m. for $10. The awards event will recognize top wedding businesses in the region. Some finalists from Napanee

A number of other local businesses were nominated for awards. “We had over 300 nominees for the awards gala, which is great. We have 15 categories and finalists for each category and that night we’ll announce the winners for each category,” said Fitzpatrick. “The 15 categories include things like best accommodations, best venue, best florist, best cake decorator, all different wedding categories.” Judging is being done by Sam and Rachelle Pollari from Say Yes to the Dress Canada, Wedding Planners Institute of Canada CEO and president Tracey Manailescu and Danielle Andrews Sunkel, among

The event hopes to draw people from across the region to help plan their special day, while also benefitting local charities. “It’s a charity event so all proceeds are going toward Breast Cancer Action Kingston and we’re supporting If Wishes Were Dresses as well,” said Fitzpatrick.

Raiders salute their best at awards banquet Riley Steeves earns team’s President Trophy, Aidan McFarland named top rookie

BY ADAM PRUDHOMME Staff Reporter

Friday nights will be the new Tuesday for the Napanee Raiders next season as the Junior C hockey club shifts away from its long tradition of hosting home games on school nights. That was perhaps the biggest surprise to come out of the team’s annual awards banquet, which was held last Wednesday at the Selby Hall. “Hopefully that’ll be better for the guys that are going to Queen’s, for exam purposes,” Raiders president Morris Hart said of ending their 27-year-long affair with Tuesday night home games in favour of Friday games. “They can study for exam purposes and get high marks and come out and play hockey.” Hart said he hoped the switch would also help attract families and younger fans who wouldn’t have to worry about school the next day. When it came time for the awards however there were far fewer surprises. Riley Steeves earned the team’s top prize, the President’s Award, after posting 38 points and notching six game winning goals in the regular season. Aidan McFarland was a multiple award winner, collecting the Harold Webster Award for embodying the Raider philosophy both on and off the ice, as well as the Ron Lakins award, handed

Riley Steeves accepts the President’s Trophy, the team’s top award, from Napanee Raiders president Morris Hart during the annual awards banquet. to the team’s top rookie. In 35 games the Napanee native he had 26 goals and 23 assists. He also skated in a handful of games with the OHL’s Mississauga Steelheads. In the Junior C playoffs he was the team’s most productive scorer, chipping in four goals and 11 assists in nine games. Matt Muller was named the Judy Jarmin Memorial winner as the team’s top

defensive defenceman in terms of plus/minus. Jordan Cannons won it as the top defensive forward. Muller was also selected as the team’s top all-around defenceman, earning the Bob McGreer Memorial trophy. Chris Rogalsky and Matt Tedford shared the Earl Morrison Award. Named for the late publisher of the Napanee Beaver,

this award honours players who quietly turn in productive seasons without a ton of fanfare. Cullen Hinds earned the Harold Sweet Award, which is the local equivalent as the NHL’s Lady Byng Memorial Trophy, given to the most sportsmanlike player. Hinds had just 15 minutes worth of penalties while playing in all 40 regular season games. He scored 39 points before

adding 14 more in the playoffs. Cannons earned the team’s newest award, named after the team’s late equipment manager George Magold and given to the coaches feel is the best teammate on the roster. Team captain Austin Boulard captured the team’s scoring title for the second year in a row with 23 goals and 34 assists, 11 points better than his previous season. He was unable to attend the banquet as he is currently assisting the Kingston Voyageurs in their playoff push, called up as an affiliated player. “In the last two years we’ve gotten to the league playoffs only to be bested by our nemesis, Port Hope,” Hart said when reflecting on the Raiders’ 2015-16 season. “Let’s be positive though. Port Hope went last year to Game 7 of the Ontario finals and got beat 1-0 on this home ice and this year their well on their way to a repeat starting against Alliston and after that one there’s one more series. It proves to me this league is very competitive. We enjoy some of the best Junior C hockey in Ontario.” The Panthers are currently tied 2-2 in their bestof-seven semifinals. Hart also said the season was a positive one on the financial front as corporate sponsors coupled with a second consecutive playoff appearance has helped nearly dig the team out of

debt. They’ll also be holding a celebrity cook-off event April 30 at the Strathcona Paper Centre as well as a their annual alumni golf tournament on Aug. 26 at Loyalist Golf and Country Club to help cover their operating costs. On the board Hart mentioned five long-serving members who would be stepping down: Peter and Kathy Wagar, Phil and Carol Ann Hanna and Sandra Beaubien. On the ice the team had their best finish since 200910, finishing with 52 points. “Success isn’t always just measured with wins,” added Raiders head coach Mike Hartwick, who along with the rest of the coaching staff, is slated to return for another season. “Where we came from last August to where we ended up, there’s some special memories there. This is a fantastic group. We’ve got people from Buffalo, Timmins, Pickering, Brighton and Kingston.” Looking at the roster they had nine players affiliate with a higher junior team while almost half the team had no Junior C experience heading into the season. Just over a month after getting eliminated the team will be back to the drawing board and preparing for next season by hosting a prospect camp April 22 and 23 at the SPC. Their main camp will take place in August.

Willy Dog’s ‘top dog’ to run London Marathon for charity Will Hodgskiss aims to complete famous run in effort to raise money for ChildLine

BY ADAM PRUDHOMME Staff Reporter

apanee entrepreneur Will Hodgskiss will be headed to Jolly Old England later this month to take part in the London Marathon in an effort to raise money for ChildLine. The CEO and founder of the Napanee based Willy Dog Carts and Venture Food Trucks has already raised

N

$5,000 for ChildLine, which maintains a 24-hour help phone line for kids to call in times of need. He’s hoping through pledged donations to raise $7,500 for the cause. “I’m soft when it comes to women and children causes,” said Hodgskiss. “So (ChildLine) was a good one. I could have supported quite a few different choice but among the ones available for this particular race, that was he one I thought was the most worthy.”

Though his main goal is to raise money, Hodgskiss has completed several marathons in the past and has been training for six months in preparation for the April 24 race. “There’s 40,000 runners there,” he said. “I don’t want to come in last.” Under the guidance of coach John Reid, who himself is a veteran of the Boston Marathon, Hodgskiss has set a goal of finishing the race in under

four hours. His whole race however was put in jeopardy recently while training when he suffered a knee injury. “I injured my knee and could hardly walk,” he said. “I was doing a 27 KM training run and I had to walk the last 5 KM because I couldn’t run anymore. I thought that was going to be it.” Through a little bit of therapy he’s gotten back to race form and hopes to still

achieve his goal. “It’s not necessarily the hardest (race), but it’s almost certainly going to be raining and seven or eight degrees,” Hodgskiss said of the London Marathon. “It won’t likely be a pleasant environment so it won’t be without its challenges.” The course will take runners past several of city’s famous landmarks including Tower of London, Buckingham Palace and London Bridge.

As an added bonus to the trip Hodgskiss is hoping he’ll have the chance to meet his idol Richard Branson, who is sponsoring the race. As a fellow entrepreneur, Hodgskiss is hoping to compare notes and perhaps pick up some pointers to bring back to his Napanee business.

Territories. “They were just getting off the ground up there,” Scott Huyck, a member of the NDMHA executive board said of Fort Liard’s minor hockey program. Without equipment donated from larger hockey centres, the community that sports a population of just over 500 simply wouldn’t be able to run a youth hockey program. The Stars donated the used gear after they held an extremely successful equipment drive last fall. Once they outfitted as many of their own as they could with the second-hand gear, they began to explore options on how to put the left over equipment to good use. About 10 local kids were able to benefit from the donation drive, allowing them to get properly equipped for hockey for their first year and see if it’s a sport they would want to play long term without their parents having to shell out for new, top-of-the-line gear. The rest was sent north. “I had a full sized truck and it was full of jerseys, everything to outfit kids basically from top to bottom,” said Huyck. “It all went to Fort Liard.” Recently the appreciative players sent photos to all the areas that provided the hand-me-downs, which Huyck has been circulating among the Stars executive board and parents of the

One young boy was learning how to play net so we sent some goalie equipment. It was older equipment but they could make use of anything we

could send.” Given the success of this year’s equipment drive, both for local players and those up north, Huyck said NDMH is already planning to host another one this fall. They’ll look to partner with another small community who is in need of equipment once the local kids are looked after.

“It happens to everybody, it gets around August and they starting trying on equipment and this doesn’t fit, that doesn’t fit,” said Huyck. “So they throw it in a corner of the basement or a corner of the attic and it sits there and sits there. If they’re not going to use it, they could donate it and that would be great.”

My Mother Kept A Garden

My Mother kept a garden, A garden of the heart, She planted all the good things That gave my life it’s start. She turned me to the sunshine And encouraged me to dream, Fostering and nurturing The seeds of self-esteem… And when the winds and rain came, She protected me enoughBut not too much because she knew I’d need to stand up strong and tough. Her constant good example Always taught me right from wrongMarkers for my pathway That will last a lifetime long. I am my Mother’s garden. I am her legacyAnd I hope today she feels the love Reflected back from me ~ Author Unknown

MEMORIAMS

HART - In loving memory of a dear mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, Eileen Hart, who passed away on April 14, 2015. When I come to the end of my journey And I travel my last weary mile, Just forget, if you can, that I ever frowned And only remember the smile. Forget unkind words I have spoken Remember some good I have done Forget that I ever had a heartache And remember I had loads of fun. Forget that I stumbled and blundered And sometimes fell by the way, Remember I have fought some hard battles And won, ere the close of the day. Then forget to grieve for my going I would not have you sad for a day, But in summer just gather some flowers And remember the place where I lay. And come in the shade of the evening When the sun paints the sky in the west, Stand for a few moments beside me And remember only my best. Lovingly remembered by Doug, Larry, Jack and their families. NORMILE - In loving memory of Sylvia, who passed away April 18, 2008. I thought of you today But that is nothing new, I thought of you yesterday And will tomorrow too, I often lay awake at night When the world is fast asleep And take a walk down memory lane With tears upon my cheeks, Your memory is my keepsake With which I’ll never part, God has you in His keeping, I have you in my heart. Loved always, Bob.

require you to adjust the height, so that the composition looks best for the space. Starting with the 57” artwork height gives you a guideline. Use the green painter’s tape to make a height of 57” from the floor to the middle of the wall. Then, use the additional tape to mark out the overall length and width of the composition. This can be done by designating the corners of your overall composition, so that you can see the full scale of your gallery wall.

Step 4- Make Templates for Each Artwork Trace the overall size of each artwork on white paper. Cut out these shapes to create your templates. Next, flip around each artwork and study the locations of your hanging hardware. Measure these locations and mark them in black pen on your templates to create hanging marks. For any frames to be hung with wire, be sure to check the measurement when the middle of the wire is pulled taut. This tests how low the piece will hang

Step 5- Grab A Hammer Gather your hanging hardware and a hammer. Start by hanging one artwork at a time, nailing hardware into locations marked on your templates, from step 4. Use a level as needed to test the evenness of any artwork. Once the piece is mounted, rip out the template from underneath. As you build your gallery wall, periodically stand back and check the progress as well as the levels and spacing.

of them will really enjoy being in a rural community and don’t realize that rural physicians do so much,” said Whan. During the week of May 24-27, three Ottawa U students will be in Napanee for the week. The following week, from May 30 to June 3, Napanee will be host to two Queen’s students. This two-week period is not only an opportunity for physicians to show the medical students all that rural medicine has to offer, but also for small communities in eastern Ontario to display all they have to offer to potential future physicians. “Because Sandra and I have been doing this for 12 or 13 years now we see the students come through for Community Week and then back again for their clerkship. Then we start to get them back in their residency and now we’re starting to see them set up practice in our area of Eastern Ontario. It’s really nice to see that,” said Shuttleworth, who was also involved in Mitchell’s placements in 2006 and 2010.

Next month, five medical students from Ottawa University and Queen’s University will be shadowing local physicians in Greater Napanee. All first-year medical students are required to participate in Community Week — a week learning from rural doctors in small communities. The Eastern Regional Medical Education Program organizes the program, dispersing students into 36 communities in eastern Ontario. This year there will be 125 students from Ottawa U and 65 from Queen’s participating in the first-year placement program. The program greatly benefits small communities like Greater Napanee because it means more medical professionals in the community and, in turn, it could entice some of them to return to here to set up practice. Only a few years ago a Ottawa U graduate Dr. Craig Mitchell set up

practice in Napanee after participating in Community Week here as a first-year student. “Dr. Craig Mitchell came through our program years ago; he’s now set up and working as a family physician in Napanee. He did Community Week with us years ago in 2006,” said Jennifer Shuttleworth, of the Eastern Regional Medication Education Program. Mitchell also returned to Napanee in 2010 to for his six-week general surgery rotation, another prerequisite for graduation. Sandra Whan, also of the ERMEP, said the program ‘plants a seed’ for the student about rural medicine and in turn benefits both the community and the students participating in it. “I believe that it does benefit Napanee. What we’ve found over the years is a lot of learners, as we call them, they come out and they may have never been in a small community; they may be from the urban centre of Toronto or something like that. What we’ve found is when they do come, a lot

Steam train had character all its own I am privileged to live close to the Salmon River. In fact it passes by 50 feet from front window. Besides the serenity inspired by the flowing water, the sound emanating from the murmuring rapids are magically soothing. Second only to that is the sound of train whistles as they speed by on the main line of the CPR, only a few hundred yards distant. To some it may be irritating â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but to me it is relaxing. All train whistles are not created equal. Over the years they have resembled everything from a tea kettle signaling the water is boiling, to a wildcat making its presence known in the deep woods, to a clarinet sounding forth; and, now, echoing from diesel engines â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a stuck car horn. But the classic, which was consistently heard from the rail lines in the 1940s and 1950s, was a more throaty bugle-like blast. But regardless, those iron monsters propelled by steam were unique. Second World War fighter planes had character. Much of that was squandered with the obsession for aerodynamic

lines in their jet replacements. The same was true of 1950s automobiles. Each company created designs of their own â&#x20AC;&#x201D; also giving them character. Gradually the European look resulted

Glen R. Goodhand Snapshots From The Past in cars all looking pretty much alike. Likewise, unlike the streamlined diesel-electric, the steam train radiated the same â&#x20AC;&#x201D; character. It seemed to have a personality all its own. Not a few senior citizens will recall the distinctive sonority of the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;choo chooâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; trainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s howl, which had a singular tone â&#x20AC;&#x201D; almost like an appeal to be heard. In some ways it would compete with the hominess of crickets chirping and frogs singing, heard for miles. The more the weather previewed coming rain, the further the squall would penetrate the atmosphere. Often it prompted folks to stop what they were doing sim-

ply to absorb the clarion call. These huge machines were tremendously imposing outfits. This writer remembers the occasion when, as a boy of 10, my Grandfather Goodhand took me for an eight-mile ride from the local CNR depot to our closest town. Standing on the station platform as the as the mighty beast chugged to a stop, its sheer noise and vibrations fairly caused one to shudder from head to toe. The first primitive steam locomotive had its origin in Great Britain in 1804. Richard Thevithickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s model looked like oversized horizontal rain barrel, with a smokestack and huge drive-wheels added. The next significant step was taken by Colonel John Stevens in North America in 1825. He is called the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;father of railroadingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. His version, called the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;steam wagon,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; looked exactly like one, with an open steel frame, a seat, and a boiler/flue combination which made up the bulk of the mechanism.

COMMUNITY FARM CALENDAR New partnership with Hydro One to address on-farm electricity issues

April 1, 2016 - By Brent Royce, Director, Ontario Federation of Agriculture Ontario farmers have an improved process for addressing on-farm electrical issues with Hydro One. The new Farm Rapid Response Team has been developed by Hydro One in partnership with Ontario Federation of Agriculture (OFA) to deal with issues including stray voltage, ground current and power quality. The new centralized approach will help identify, assess and mitigate on-farm electrical issues.

Stray voltage and ground current are significant electrical issues that have been a serious concern for some Ontario farmers for decades. These occurrences of uncontrolled electricity, or constant underground electrical current, flow in the ground or in barns and are dangerous. Animals can be exposed to shocks transmitted through barn floors, milking equipment and water bowls. Livestock exposed to uncontrolled electricity may have lower production, stop eating or drinking, or exhibit other odd behaviour. Some long term exposures can even result in death. OFA has been working in partnership with Hydro One to address and resolve ground current challenges

impacting Ontario farm businesses since 2013. Hydro Oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s collaboration with OFA and their commitment to this serious issue are important steps to resolving these issues that can cause serious problems on Ontario farms. OFA welcomes this new working relationship and the creation of the Farm Rapid Response Team. The province-wide team of specialists will provide Hydro One farming customers with a new streamlined and simplified approach to manage onfarm electrical issues and is committed to delivering more consistent, timely responses to issues. The Farm Rapid Response Team will work with customers from start to finish â&#x20AC;&#x201C; including registering concerns, escalating an issue, providing understandable written reports, and a dedicated phone number with contact for the duration of the resolution process. The new province-wide Farm Rapid Response Team service is expected to be in place by Summer 2016. Watch for details about how to contact the new service team at ofa.on.ca. This is the first step in building a new working relationship to move farm issues ahead at Hydro One.

Got a pulse? HE United Nations have deemed this the Year of Pulses. For most readers the idea of focusing on an obscure agricultural crop like this is likely of little interest. I am here to change that. Fact is, pulses are huge right now and you do know them, just not likely by that name: the pulse family includes dried beans, peas, lentils and chickpeas, all members of the legume family. Measured in nutrientsper-acre, pulses come out on top of most surveys, way ahead of grains and we won’t even talk about beef. Countries like India and many African nations have come to rely on pulses to feed their densely populated regions. The United Nations have determined that the Year of Pulses will be an opportunity to, “heighten nutritional benefits of pulses as part of sustainable food production aimed towards food security and nutrition.” Over the past generation in North America the popularity of pulses has grown at a staggering pace. Interestingly, Canada has become the second largest producer of pulses (lentils

bushy. Unlike ‘peas’ they do not need staking as the plants tend to support one another (like a real family!) Grow in fertile soil and avoid using commercial fertilizers. As nitrogen-fixers they can actually add nutrients to the soil, unlike most other plants in the garden. They convert energy from the sun and nitrogen from the air into root nodules in the first half of the season. Each little nodule contains a mini-pack of nitrogen. Be sure to add 3 to 4 cm of composted manure to the soil before planting. All pulses require a minimum of six hours of sunshine. After the first four weeks, water the plants when the soil becomes dry 3 cm deep. You can acquire seeds for your own crop at Salt Spring Seeds (www.saltspringseeds.com) or Simpsons Seeds (www.simpsonseeds.com), both are reliable Canadian seed suppliers.

POLICY | Meeting dates to be announced CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 Scandlan has presented council with four options the TPRC has been weighing. Some councillors and members of the public felt that, regardless of which option was chosen, the tax difference may not be great enough for staff’s time to be worthwhile to enforce the change. “At the end of the day, the area-rating for $14 difference after three years on a $226,000 assessment, have you considered the staff time to administer such a miniscule difference between the two?” Ward 5 Councillor Shaune Lucas asked Scandlan. “At this particular point, what you’ve been presented are all suggestions that have risen through discussions with the committee. To tell you the truth, I really haven’t formed an opinion,” Scandlan replied. Between Scandland’s report, McDonald’s recom-

mendation, and questions from the public, Tuesday’s taxation discussion took nearly two hours. The motion to provide the extension was moved by Ward 2 Councillor Max Kaiser and seconded by Deputy Mayor Marg Isbester. The motion is a combination of Scandlan’s request as well as McDonald’s recommendation and states that council approves three additional meetings for the TPRC to be completed by the end of June; for council to allocate resources to work with the OPP to provide the new, additional data from the OPP to the TPRC; and that council authorize additional budgeting required for the extension. Council carried the motion unanimously; Ward 4 Councillor Carol Harvey did not attend Tuesday’s meeting. Committee members, Scandlan and Greater Napanee staff are working to confirm new TPRC meeting dates.

HOMEFINDER / RE5

Save money and stay cool as temperatures rise (MS) — Excessive energy bills can be a concern in spring and summer, just as much as they are in the winter. So how can you save money while keeping your home cool? The solution is simple: Top up your attic insulation. A poorly insulated attic is a primary source of energy loss, forcing your AC unit to work harder than necessary over the warmer months. Most attics are insulated, but oftentimes the amount of insulation present is inadequate — especially in older homes. Over

time, insulation can settle and compact, allowing heat to escape through gaps. Topping it up is easy. Ideally, you want to aim for a depth of 16 inches of insulation for an overall R-value of 50. When existing insulation is present, simply level existing insulation to the top of the joist. Lay a fire- and moisture-resistant batt insulation, like Roxul Comfortbatt, on top of joists, running perpendicular to the first layer. Ensure batts are butted against each other tightly. Fit batts

closely to cross joists; cut batt if necessary (this can be done easily with a serrated blade or bread knife) and leave no space between layers. Don’t forget to insulate the attic hatch to the same level as the rest of the attic. Apply weatherstripping to the edge of the hatch to reduce air leakage. Keep in mind that only IC-rated electrical fixtures can have insulation placed with zero clearance. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions and local building code to insulate around the chimney.

When a house is insulated properly, energy savings can add up over time. Remember, insulation starts working the

moment it is installed and can last for the life of the building. Tips on this easy, low-cost DIY project that will reduce
