Voting at large goes through Bylaw could be subject to OMB challenge BY SETH DUCHENE Editor

Pending a possible appeal to the Ontario Municipal Board, Stone Mills council moved ahead with a plan to do away with the township’s ward voting system in favour of a new ‘at-large’ voting system. After a debate that lasted almost an hour Monday night, council voted 4-3 for a bylaw that would bring the new at-large voting system in time for the 2014 municipal election. Under that system, all council members will be elected by all residents of the township; further, and for the first time since amalgamation, the deputy-reeve position will be elected directly rather than by council members at the start of a four-year council term. One of the council members opposed to the change — DeputyReeve Eric Smith of Ward 2 (Sheffield)— predicted that the bylaw would be challenged at the OMB. Immediately after Reeve Doug Bearance declared the motion carried, Smith said, “Prepare yourself for an OMB.”

Despite agreement, landfill fight goes on Concerned groups point to offsite results in demanding BREC be abandoned BY SETH DUCHENE Editor

On Friday, the ERT consented to passing an ‘interim order’ relating to the closure conditions of the Richmond Landfill, following months of negotiation between WM, the Ministry of the Environment and various concerned citizens and other groups. The order effectively

concerns remain regarding the closure plan; further, the group argued that the findings stemming from the ERT process demonstrate that plans for the proposed BREC facility — which would feature a landfill roughly four times the size of the current facility — should be abandoned immediately.

Duo honoured as multicultural ‘icons’ Napanee’s Kathryn Snider, Martin Millin to be honoured in advance of 10th annual festival BY SETH DUCHENE Editor

While Napanee’s Multicultural Festival is aimed at celebrating cultural differences and bridging racial and ethnic divides, some Napanee residents were doing that decades earlier. At the 10-year anniversary of the festival this year, however, those who helped to break down racial stereotypes and prejudices in days gone by will get their due recognition. This past week, the organizing committee named longtime local residents Kathryn ‘Kay’ Snider and Martin Millin as two of

the four community ‘icons’ for the annual celebration. In 1965, it was Snider and her family who welcomed Millin, a Jamaican ex-pat who came here by way of Britain to find work. Millin, a welder by trade, found a place to stay at Snider’s boarding house right after his first day of work at Napanee Ironworks. It had been a whirlwind week for Millin, who left his job in Sheffield, England on a Tuesday, flew to Canada on Thursday, and started working in Napanee on Monday. “(A friend) told me the best place to go was Kay Snider’s boarding house,” recalled Millin.

“What I remember about Martin was that he was the first black person I ever saw, really,” said Sharlene Wyatt, Snider’s granddaughter, recalling Millin’s arrival when she was a child. The colour of his skin, however, didn’t for a moment make her or her family hesitant to welcome him. “We just accepted him like he was just one of the family.” In doing so, Kay was passing along a maxim she had learned in her own childhood when she was growing up in the mid-western U.S. “She was always taught that there was no difference in people, (regardless) of their colour. They were always taught that. So, she wouldn’t think anything at all (about taking Martin in),” said Carol Thielman, another one of Snider’s granddaughters. Carol said she can remember one time when Kay’s intolerance to the racially intolerant was put to the test. “I do remember being at Grandma’s one day… and Grandma was really mad. We would never see stuff like that. But she was angry at a woman… who told her she should kick the black man out of the house. She said, ‘Nobody is going to tell me who is going to live here.’” Wyatt and Thielman recall another instance when Millin, while accom-

The proprietor issued a public apology after the incident. The owner of another local bar, meanwhile, advised him he could drink at his place any time — and even gave him a beer on the house. “Some (people) were friendly, some were not. It was the same in Britain, too,” Millin said. The Sniders certainly fell into the ‘friendly’ category, and Millin and his family and the Sniders enjoyed a close relationship over the years. In fact, it was on Kay’s

advice that Millin embarked on a second ‘career’ as a landlord. In the early 1980s, Millen purchased a group of homes along the south side of Bridge Street near Mac’s Milk. “(Millin) said the best thing he ever did was to accept the advice to buy (the apartments), because in the end Martin owned that whole block. That’s quite an achievement,” said Cortwright Christian, Multicultural Festival founder and organizer.

We’re leaving and we’re never coming back.” They never did. They never went back,” said Wyatt. Thielman added that the request for Millin to leave didn’t sit well with many other Napanee residents, either. “There were a lot of other people in Napanee that never went into that business again,” she said.

ICONS | Festival runs from June 20-22 CONTINUED FROM PAGE 2 The section of houses is hard to miss: his finely manicured gardens fronting the street are a colourful town highlight in the spring summer months. Millin says maintaining those gardens is an activity he still enjoys; Christian, the chef at L&A Seniors Outreach Services, says he often uses vegeta-

bles from Millin’s gardens to prepare his dishes. And, Millin remains close to the Sniders to this day. Despite the fact Millin was slowed down by a stroke about four years ago, and despite the fact Kay — now 104 — is in a retirement home, the two still visit each other often. “We just had Easter. I went out to the nursing home and got my grandmother. I

brought her home, and on the way I picked up Martin… I do that every year. They’re family, that’s just what they do,” said Thielman. Snider and Millin will be recognized at the threeday Multicultural Festival from June 20-22, which will take place at the Strathcona Paper Centre. For more information, visit http://www.ndmca.com.

by Your Local Paint & Paper Experts It is that time of year; spring fever has officially hit our area. Whether our clients are cleaning and freshening up for themselves or preparing their home for resale, they have hit us again this spring, with a flurry of questions. I would like to write about taking the steps to prep your home for its best resale value. When it comes to getting your home ready, after minimalizing the contents (i.e. de-cluttering all spaces), the next most dynamic impact is also the most cost effective way to make a dramatic change, freshen up your spaces with paint. Repainting is of course always one of our recommendations because it is one of the least expensive design elements with the most dramatic impact. Unfortunately, few people have the ability to look at a home and see the potential through layers of wallpaper or unique design elements created by the current owner. To please the masses, we always suggest that main living areas be completed in neutral tones of cream, greys or taupes. Pops of colour can then be added with accessories such as throw pillows, blankets or inexpensive artwork. And when you are complimented for your colour scheme, don’t forget to mention that all of your selections are kept on file at AURA by Colour Connection. A nice touch to increase a potential buyers comfort level and sure way to show your TLC. We are confident in our opinion that sticking to these simple tips will increase the overall saleability of your home!

EDITORIAL

Negative ads are a test, of sorts This weekend, the Liberal Party of Canada (and a few thousand supporters) elected a new leader: Justin Trudeau. Whether or not the son of former prime minister Pierre Trudeau can make good on the overwhelming endorsement he got this week — the MP from Papineau took 80 per cent of the overall vote on the first ballot — remains to be seen. There won’t be an election until 2015, and two years is a very long time in federal politics. As we’ve said before, Trudeau has much to prove over the next two years to show he’s got what it takes to lead the country. Up to this point, he has been plenty charming, but short on substance. We’ll have to wait and see whether he’s the real deal. The Conservative Party, however, was quick to try to short-circuit Trudeau’s hopes before they even really got off the ground. Less than 24 hours after he won the leadership, the Conservatives rolled out a series of ads designed to question Trudeau’s qualifications as a PM-in-waiting. (For those who haven’t seen them yet, they show Trudeau taking off his shirt on stage — at a charity fundraiser for the Canadian Liver Foundation, which strangely isn’t mentioned in the ad — and some quotes from Trudeau in 1999 saying that Quebecers were better than other Canadians.) We don’t like negative ads. They’re the lowest form of political discourse. That said, if parties want to ‘go negative’, there should be no restriction on their ability to do so. And, make no mistake, any party will employ negative ads if a) they can afford to pay for them and b) they believe they can give them a leg up on the competition. Yes, we know Trudeau has said he won’t use negative ads, but it’s a pledge we’ve heard from politicians before, and it’s a pledge that’s all too easily abandoned in the midst of a campaign. The thing about negative advertising is that it can backfire. A bad negative ad can do more damage to the party paying for them than the party being attacked. (We’d argue it’s as good a proof of ‘karma’ as there is.) But there’s another way to look at negative ads, in particular as they relate to Trudeau. If Trudeau’s bid to replace Stephen Harper and the Conservatives is derailed by ads like the ones we saw this week, then he doesn’t have what it takes to be prime minister. A credible candidate with a sound platform should be able to overcome such insubstantial attacks. If he can’t, doesn’t that mean that Trudeau’s candidacy is insubstantial?

Of course, Teresa Rands should be given great credit for her beautiful renovation to the Superior Restaurant. Our town has been blessed to have these young innovators working to rebuild the glory of downtown Napanee. I wanted to add to the story of the renovation of the Merchants Bank Block by giving due recognition to Brian and Joan Patterson, who originally renovated the storefront which was Marlin Travel, and is now Starlet Shoes.

Joan tastefully used elements of the original building design even matching the oval window of the corner building. This provided the perfect tie-in which Jefta and Cat have continued. Also I wish to recognize McConnell Contracting who did the work on Marlin’s renovation. Much of the character of our streetscapes can be traced back to Charlie McConnell and his firm. I can say with enthusiasm that I am proud to call Napanee my home, and take pride when showing visitors my hometown. Cliff Trott, Greater Napanee

Letters To The Editor

WM in denial on Richmond Landfill I am compelled to respond to the advertisement run by Waste Management titled ‘Working Together Works’. The company infers that the dialogue and sharing of all information was voluntary. I would like to remind everyone that the exchange took place only after the company had rejected previous Concerned Citizen recommendations and they had consequently hauled the company before the Environmental Review Tribunal. The data exchange revealed a long history of indication of leachate leaks into groundwater. During the time when this information was in the hands of Waste Management we were told that it was not leaking. The claim in this recent advertisement that ‘there is no risk to public health or the environment’ is another example of denial

from this company. What about the residents of the houses where testing has compelled the MOE to order WM to supply whole house water? People living in these houses had been using their well water for years. Has there been no risk to their health? What about the acknowledged indications of leachate in the groundwater beyond the boundaries of the dump? No one knows the extent of these leaks. There is no approved plan to contain the leaks. Leachate is made up of thousands of chemicals many of which pose serious risks to human health and the environment. This company has lost all credibility in our community. Jeff Whan, Roblin

Two Enterprise P.S. students roast some marshmallows over a campfire during a class trip to Gould Lake.

Class trip was a hit: student Gould Lake is a place where classes in the Limestone District School Board from kindergarten to Grade 12 can go to do things like pond studies, canoe and even winter cookouts like we did. They do programs on the environment to help us learn more about nature and animals. On March 26, the Grade 3/4 and 5/6 classes at Enterprise Public School went to Gould Lake. When we got there we had a snack and went to the washroom. Then we talked about some animal tracks. Next we went on a hike. We saw lots of tracks, some deer scat and even a porcupine home! Halfway through the loooong walk we stopped for lunch on a frozen swamp. I

ate two whole hot dogs and two s’mores, over fires that we made with the Gould Lake staff. We used pizza pans so we wouldn’t leave traces of the fire on the snow, and we only burned small dead branches. At this point it was time to hike back. We stopped twice to play a really fun game called Eagle's Nest! After the last game it was time to hike again. Luckily it was only three minutes to the barn, since we were very tired. When we got there we packed up our stuff and left. That was our great day at Gould Lake. Daniel Rines, Grade 3, Enterprise Public School

Thrush from west visits Massassauga As much as I enjoy hiking at Massassauga Point Conservation Area for its history, this 60-acre parcel of land on the Bay of Quinte just southeast of Belleville, tends to be near the bottom of the list for birding. The reason, of course, is the monoculture of red cedars and buckthorn which provides less than ideal conditions for many species. Lots of robins winter here due to the plethora of red cedar and buckthorn berries. I have found flocks of cedar and Bohemian waxwings, and yellow-rumped warblers in the winter. In spring though, very little variety of warblers to speak of, few sparrow species, not many flycatchers and surprisingly few ducks. Of course, we have our resident osprey to make up for the lack of other species. Last month, however, Massassauga hosted an unusual visitor, if only for three days. Birder Tom Wheatley of Belleville dropped in to the conservation area to try his luck and near the edge of an open alvar in about the centre of the property, he found a varied thrush. So, what’s unusual about

a varied thrush? Well, for one thing, its normal range is the Pacific coast. We have had them before in the Quinte area. An individual had just disappeared from a Tweed area feeder only days earlier. It was determined from photos taken that the Massassauga bird was a different individual. There was one at a feeder near the village of Moscow a few years back, and one hung around a feeder in the Prinyer’s Cove area of Prince Edward County 10 years ago for almost four months. It is always fun to speculate why these vagrants turn up in eastern Ontario somewhere every winter. We could conclude that prolonged weather fronts might carry them here. If that were so, then there should be more than the few that turn up each winter in eastern Ontario. And they don’t stop their eastward journey here; they have been observed as far east as Maine. We could also attribute their appearances to a glitch in their computer programming, sending some of these vagrants east instead of south. Truth is, varied thrushes

Terry Sprague

Outdoor Rambles have always been given to wandering. After all, ancestors of the varied thrush likely invaded North America from Asia, and that several attempts were probably made before the current breeding population along the Pacific coast was established. These extralimital wanderings that occur today could be a carryover that has been passed down through generations of varied thrushes since the day the first one landed in North America. Twenty years ago, coordina-

tors with the popular Project FeederWatch reported on the thrush’s irruptions and overall populations. They reported a two to three year cycle of abundance in most of their normal wintering range, believed to be tied in to periodical peaks in acorns, a popular item in the diets of wintering varied thrushes. However, they also found that those population fluctuations happened independently of the birds’ east and southward irruptions. It was also found that occurrences of varied thrushes most always occurred during the winter months where birds will stick around for only a few days, like the individual near Tweed last month, or settle right in for several months as the individual did at Prinyer’s Cove, east of Lake on the Mountain. One ornithologist determined that the thrushes likely followed a southerly path from northern Alaska and Alberta (majority of varied thrushes appear to be of a northern race) to northern Minnesota and southern Ontario. Many appear to fly north of the Great Lakes to reach the Atlantic

seaboard. Those observed in the southern states are believed to have followed the Rocky Mountains south, and then continued along the path of a major river, such as the Colorado. Bottom line, perhaps these varied thrushes are not vagrants at all, but rather, represent a larger movement of winter wanderers from as far north as Alaska and north-western Canada. Whatever the reason, the varied thrush seems to do its thing, right on cue. Once day, our speculations will morph into truths as scientists get more involved in placing miniature transmitters on birds to determine where exactly they go, and what route they take. It has been used successfully to track waterfowl. The technology is here now to place coded transmitters, barely a centimetre in length, on small songbirds.

A trip through the pages of The Napanee Beaver 65 Years Ago April 21, 1948 n Residents in Lennox and Addington and those around Ontario were preparing for a highly charged provincial election. Progressive Conservative Premier George Drew called a general election, with the vote to be held on June 7. In calling the election, Drew was going to the polls early — barely three years since the previous election. He explained the early election call by saying the province was preparing to proceed with some massive investments in Ontario’s electrical infrastructure and the government needed a new mandate to proceed. n With the Odessa Continuation School set to close and without a new high school board in place, the Napanee Collegiate Institute was preparing to accept some 35 Odessa-area high school students on a temporary basis. The matter of how the students would be transported to Napanee was yet to be determined. The Odessa students would be attending school in Napanee for the start of the upcoming school year; the arrangement was anticipated to last four months.

35 Years Ago April 19, 1978 n Some Napanee town councillors were concerned that the difference between having a ‘clerk’ and a ‘clerk administrator’ might be more than just a matter of changing letterhead. Although council ultimately approved the change, some council members opposed the move, suggesting that the title change will come with an increase in pay down the road. “We’ve created a position which, in time, could prove a highly paid one. Our population is not increasing and we’re trying to keep the mill rate down. I can’t see a real need (for a clerk administrator),” said councillor William Lofgren. n A local seniors steering committee was in the process of approaching local service groups to help fund a taxi fare relief program for the elderly. The group was hoping to generate $2,000 by approaching the Royal Canadian Legion, the Lions Club and the Rotary Club. The money would be used to offset the cost of cab fares for seniors. Under the program, any trip would cost a senior 75 cents.

‘Grandaddy’ course turns 116 W. C. Herrington, in describing recreation in Napanee (The History of Lennox & Addington County, 1913, reprinted Mika,1972), may not have been a golfer, for he emphasized cricket, softball and curling to the exclusion of golf, which has been a sport here since 1897. The Lennox & Addington County Historical Society (Historical Glimpses of Lennox & Addington, 1964) also gave golf scant mention under sports either. However, anyone who has lived here long knows that golf has a rich history — and a expanding future. The original nine-hole club sits on another of Napanee’s high points in the valley setting. The L&A County Museum files describe the course as, “The Grandaddy, the second oldest nine-hole course in Canada boasts beautifully manicured, fully-irrigated fairways made challenging by mature trees, rolling hills and intriguing water hazards. The challenges presented by the course are the undulating fairways and greens with subtle and not-so-subtle slopes.” Art Hunter of Napanee, the unofficial club historian, in a letter to the editor of the Kingston Whig Standard (Jan. 17, 2011) described the club’s history starting with, once again, the Cartwright family. “Sir Richard Cartwright’s grandson, also Sir Richard Cartwright, a resident of Napanee, was a federal cabinet minister in the government of Sir Wilfrid Laurier and, in the absence of Laurier, he served as acting prime minister. He had vast holdings of land on the south side of the Napanee River and in 1897 allowed some of his land to be used for the formation of the

first golf club in Napanee.” the country club, which Hunter continues, “In faces the road, houses the 1926 that land, 90 acres, rustic clubhouse lounge was purchased from Sir with a seating capacity of Richard’s heirs by a local 199 members and guests. pharmacist, Thomas Beat- The interior, clad in knotty tie Wallace, for $5,500 and pine and a ceiling that immediately re-sold, at the soars to a peaked roof, is same price, to 16 members set off by small paned of the golf club, who sub- dormer windows on three scribed a total of $12,500 sides; four sides before the later addito buy the tions.

Rose. The well-groomed course has a putting green but no driving range, although First Tee Golf Centre is just down the road past the new Southview Public School. The club remains open to everyone and visitors are welcomed to play when time and space allow. In 2013, a competition was held to create a new look for the old Grandaddy. The oval design sports an historic golfer with the saying below, ‘Always Time For Nine’. The elder course has seen many a famous player including professional golfer, Sam Snead, who set a course record in 1953 of sixty-three. A copy of his champion scorecard remains in the members’ lounge. Local golfers of all ages have played here, including life-long members Cliff Crawford, Al Sinclair and the late Bruce Medd who died at age 101 years and had a membership since 1932. And women have played a major role in and off the greens, including, Barb Cowle, Pat Culhane and more recently, Linda Alkenbrack, among many others whose significant trophies of past club and individual wins sit proudly on shelves. The reinvigorated club served 225 members last year, according to President, Duncan Burke. Napanee’s supercentenarian lives on into its 116th season that officially opened last Friday. Some keeners have already beaten the rush. Charles Beale is a former educator, historian, freelance writer and author of Manly E. MacDonald - Interpreter of Old Ontario.

TOWNSHIP OF TYENDINAGA PUBLIC NOTICE RAIL WHISTLING CESSATION

The Township of Tyendinaga, in conjunction with CN, has been pursuing the implementation of whistle cessation at the Crossing of Shannonville Road and mile 213.5 of CN’s Kingston Subdivision.

The Township has undertaken the necessary steps including undertaking a crossing safety assessment, giving public notice and notifying each relevant association of its intention to pass a resolution declaring that it agrees that whistles should not be used at this crossing, and finally passing the resolution.

Given that the Township has complied with the all of the requirements of section 23.1 of the Railway Safety Act, commencing on April 30th, 2013, the sounding of engine whistles will cease at the crossing of Shannonville Road and mile 213.5 of CN’s Kingston Subdivision. It is important to note that, notwithstanding the implementation of anti-whistling at this crossing, a train engineer may still use the whistle for an emergency. TEMPLE OF PRAYER AND PRAISE

Greater Napanee

Council finalizes budget, tax hike pending BY ASHLEY FOLEY Staff Reporter

Greater Napanee council tentatively approved the 2013 budget last Thursday night, with an increase to the average property tax bill in store for ratepayers. Urban residents will see an average $47.39 annual increase, while rural residents will see a $32.49 increase. Chief Administrative Officer Ray Callery said council is faced with an “extremely tight fiscal

year,” and has been faced with making a number of tough financial decisions. A member of the public addressed council, stating he has seen a number of tax increases in his short time living in Napanee and hopes it does not continue that way in the future. “I’ve been living in Napanee for about six or seven years now. My taxes have gone up more than 25 per cent in that time. My pay has gone up three per cent,” he said, partway through council’s budget discussions.

“I know you’re doing the best that you can, it’s just something I wanted to come here tonight and say,” he continued. Councillor Mike Schenk moved that council approve a 2.9 per cent increase (a $47.39 urban increase and a $32.49 rural increase), which was carried unanimously by council. The 2013 operating budget levy increase of $244,395 (2.9 per cent) will show a revenue increase of $156,418, providing a $17,712,842 total operating budget. A projected surplus of $1,500,060 from 2012 was shown. Council plans to use these funds in five different ways. The operating budget will receive $450,000, while the capital budget will receive $700,000. The assessment appeal reserve will topped up with $275,000 and two programs will receive the remaining funds. The physician recruitment program, will receive $60,000 from the surplus. The Street Smarts Program will receive $15,000. Council is expected to formally ratify the budget at their next regular meeting this Tuesday night.

Grant requests cut to $12,000 BY ASHLEY FOLEY Staff Reporter

Town of Greater Napanee council held a special budget meeting on Thursday and part of that meeting dealt with grant allocation. Council had more than $131,400 in grant requests, but ultimately elected to hand out $12,000. Council decided to support the Allan Macpherson House, the United Empire Loyalist Association, the Loyalist Parkway Association, Deseronto Transit and Loyalist College. “The Loyalist Parkway Association, we have a commitment there. We have a yearly commitment, it’s a signed document,” stated Mayor Gordon Schermerhorn, confirming the first grant budget item to be supported. That grant amounted to $1,500. The contribution to Loyalist College brought out some concerns at council, however. The organization asked for $100,000 in financial support. Council approved $2,000 for the college. “I have had conversations with Loyalist College as recent as this week in

regards to their request. They understand it’s a significant amount of money, they understand the financial situation. They want me to relay to council that they do hope they will get some support so they can say the community itself is behind them. They’re willing to support any type of funding to bring us in with their partnership,” explained Raymond Callery, town chief administrative officer. Schermerhorn said he felt obligated to assist the neighbouring educational institution. “If it’s going to help them get grant money from the province, if we needed a couple thousand dollars from someone to help them get more grants, we’d certainly appreciate the help. That’s just my personal opinion,” he said. Deputy Mayor Roger Cole agreed, stating he felt council should support post-secondary education, especially since so many NDSS graduates pursue studies there. “We’re supporting one of our educational institutions so I think $2,000 is fair,” said Cole.

Councillor Shaune Lucas disagreed, stating the municipality should not favour one post-secondary educational institution over the other, especially since Napanee finds itself between two colleges at which many local graduates pursue studies. Council also went back and forth on whether it should support the Macpherson House again this year. Some felt since a request was not put in for the $5,000 grant received in the past, the organization should not be considered again this year. Others brought up the fact that Lennox and Addington County has discussed taking over the organization. In the end, since the county has not taken over the Allan Macpherson House, council decided to support the organization with $5,000 again this year. Schermerhorn said, “We always do $5,000” for United Empire Loyalists, which council agreed to support again this year. The final grant item was $1,000 for Deseronto Transit.

Council reviews Street Smarts downtown program for 2013 Staff Reporter

The fate of the Street Smarts Program was discussed at council, who debated whether to give the program an application deadline, a monetary limit and a plan to keep the program successful after 2013. With councillors speaking from all points of view, all felt it was important to keep the program running; however, some provided different ideas about how it should be

run. The program provides financial assistance to downtown commercial property owners looking to make improvements to their storefronts. A motion was passed to provide $15,000 to the Street Smarts Program, which would pay for qualifying projects already applied for. The motion also stated council would review further applications on a caseby-case basis and give staff until Aug. 1 to review the program and propose options for to keep it viable

in the future. “The recommendation was that we would move enough (money) to cover this year until we get an overall plan from the municipality on how this program will continue. We felt that $15,000 would cover the applications that have been made this year and if something happens that there are more applications then they can be brought to council for approval then,” said Mark Day, director of finance for Greater Napanee.

Council also received a letter from the Downtown BIA stating the importance of the Street Smarts program to the municipality and to the downtown core. “I think the staff would agree that we definitely need to keep this program. There was a point in time where this program was to be self-sustaining to make sure it went on. The rules were changed and I think everyone realized when we changed the rules that we were going to run into a problem where the initial $80,000 wasn’t going to last a long time,” said Chief Administrative Officer Ray Callery. “From a staff perspective, part of the issue we’re facing is an extremely tight fiscal year and the way we allocate this surplus will affect what we have available for taxing, the rest of the budget, and we’re trying to limit an increased taxation as much as we can. We wanted to ensure that the applications as presented under the current rules could be accommodated, and they can be. There is money in the Napanee reserve that could be used if more applications come forward.” Some councillors had mixed feelings as to whether more grants should be hand-

ed out and said coming up with a dollar amount per year for the program was important. “There’s no doubt in my mind that we have to keep this program going, but with the same token, I don’t want to feeling to be out there that the sky is the limit and that seems to be what we might be suggesting here,” said Deputy Mayor Roger Cole. “We should allocate that $15,000 and have those letters come in and we will consider them. I don’t want to put out the feeling that there’s a limitless payout here to draw from. That’s my hesitation on why we should put some sort of limit on it. We’re putting a time frame on it but we’re not putting any sort of dollar sign on it,” he continued. Councillor Marg Isbester said she knows of more requests coming in soon that council should consider and though she recognized the program does need to be looked at again, she also said the continuation of the grant program is vital for the downtown core. “I think there is a need for Street Smarts. I know we need to sit down as a council and go over the program. I know there are two more applications coming in. It is

part of our infrastructure and I would like some sort of commitment from council that they would seriously consider any applications that come in,” said Isbester. Councilor Shane Grant said each building should have a limit of $5,000, rather than $5,000 for each side of the building facing a street. “We have one application in now for $10,000 for one building and I’m wondering if we should discuss limiting that to $5,000 per building rather than per side, which would help limit the cost,” he said, stating he wants the program to continue in the future. Mayor Gordon Schermerhorn said though the program is beneficial to the municipality, he feels there should be a financial limit in the future. “I think in some point in time throughout the year we have to say, ‘We can only accept so many.’ I think this is a starting point,” he said in reference to the motion. “I think this year, until we do get the finances together, let’s do the $15,000 and if we have two or three applications more we will look at them at that time.” The program will be reviewed in August and council will decide how the program will be funded and run in future years.

Urban-rural tax areas untouched BY ASHLEY FOLEY Staff Reporter

R0012035406

BY ASHLEY FOLEY

After two deputations regarding urban and rural tax policy rates, Greater Napanee council discovered the municipality could lose more than $11,000 if those not receiving urban services no longer paid at the urban rate. A member of the community, Harry Keller, brought his concerns to council stating he pays urban taxes on Vanluven Road but does not receive urban services, such as water and sewer. Staff and council explained to Keller the current tax policy is not based on water and sewer services, which are paid by user rates. Vanluven Road falls within an urban area, though is on the rural-urban line. Therefore, council requested staff prepare a report detailing how many other people are paying urban taxes, while receiving rural services. The report was provided during last Thursday’s budget meeting and stated there are 43 properties in Keller’s situation. This would mean a difference of $11,232.07 fewer

in taxes paid to the municipality if all those on paying at the urban tax rate but not receiving services were to change to rural policies. Councillor Marg Isbester felt council should look into the issue further, especially after seeing the report last week. “I think it has to be reviewed, especially when you see the difference in the taxation. There are thousands of dollars difference,” said Isbester. “The financial impact is that there are 43 properties in that area paying on the urban rate but are still on rural services,” explained Mark Day, director of finances for the Town of Greater Napanee. “My recommendation is that we do look at future tax policy but at a future date and the whole policy as a whole,” he continued, stating looking at the policy based on Keller’s perspective would not be fair to the other 42 residents. Councillor Michael Schenk moved that the request be tabled and to form future tax policy considerations when council resolves for such a review to take place, which was seconded by Deputy Mayor Roger Cole and carried unanimously by council.

WARDS | Council members outline positions CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 Earlier in the meeting, Smith said that he had been advised of some Stone Mills residents who would file an OMB challenge to the bylaw should it pass on Monday night. “They have every right to do so,” he continued. “I do not mention the appeal as a threat. I mention it because it’s a reality, and it concerns me. As a taxpayer of Stone Mills, I will support an appeal to the OMB.” Smith argued that the township failed to do its due diligence in advance of the vote, saying it failed to compile a report regarding the advantages and disadvantages of adopting at-large voting and addressing the concerns raised at a January

public meeting on the issue. “We have never discussed the impact of elections at large, (which is) in my opinion, the most important decision made by this council in the history of the township,” he said. The deputy-reeve pointed to a letter from the township’s solicitor, received by council last fall, that advised the municipality to compile a report regarding the positive and negative implications of the new voting system. Other council members argued, however, that council had done its due diligence in holding the public meeting and listening to residents’ concerns on the issue. “I think we’ve done all that. It may not be wrapped up

with a bow on it, but I think we’ve done everything with due diligence,” said Ward 3 (Camden East) councillor Doug Davison. Ward 3 councillor John Wise suggested that, since council hadn’t adopted an official position on voting atlarge, it could not compile such a report until the vote was taken. Further, Wise said that making the case before the OMB, should an appeal be filed, wouldn’t be too onerous. “If there is an appeal, it’s a fairly simple case to make,” he said, offering a rough outline of the advantages and disadvantages of at-large voting. “Is there anything really more to say? It’s a fairly simple issue. It’s an important issue, but it’s fairly simple. I

don’t think we haven’t done all that we could.” In the end, the vote broke down largely along ward lines. All three representatives from Ward 3 — the ward with the largest population — voted in favour of the change, while the Ward 1 (Newburgh) and Ward 2 reps voted against the change. Reeve Doug Bearance, who hails from Ward 2, voted in favour of the change, splitting the tie vote. Before the vote was taken, council members outlined their arguments regarding the new bylaw. All members said they came to their decisions after being contacted by residents of the township on the issue. Some of those voting

against the motion suggested that, with the change, areas of the township with smaller populations — like Newburgh and Sheffield – would lose their local representation. “The biggest concern I get from the folks who contacted me is that they will all of a sudden lose their local voice,” said Ward 2’s Todd Steele. “This council will become much like provincial or federal politics, where you will only see your elected representatives perhaps on special occasions.” Ward 1 rep Kevin Wagar said it would be a “real struggle” for Newburgh and Sheffield to be heard. Steele also wondered why council seemed to be in a rush to pass the bylaw, adding that he felt the public hadn’t been sufficiently engaged in the debate. “By making this motion, council

Working Together Works Waste Management is pleased to announce that we have reached substantial agreement with the Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte, the Concerned Citizens Committee of Tyendinaga and Environs, and Napanee Green Lights on matters under appeal to the Environmental Review Tribunal regarding environmental monitoring, technical reporting, odour management and public notification for our closed Richmond Landfill. This agreement demonstrates that positive resolution is attainable with dialogue. We appreciate the involvement of these groups in this process. It enabled all parties to share all information openly and discuss technical matters pragmatically. Scientific discussions based on facts replaced exchanges of positions in the media. We believe that this marks a critical juncture regarding the Richmond Landfill. Most important is the development of a monitoring plan that is acceptable to all parties. We can now address concerns about the groundwater safety and potential impacts from the landfill with confidence, not conflict. This is critical for all of us. We are obtaining control of additional land south of Beechwood Road to monitor and manage groundwater resources. There is no risk to public health or the environment. With the expanded monitoring programs that we have agreed to implement, we will have further information to understand and operate our site safely. Working together works. This process proved that. It builds upon the open dialogue we have had with our neighbours and the Community Liaison Committee. We can develop solutions together that benefit our communities and protect our environment. The success reached here provides a good foundation for our future.

Thursday, April 18, 2013 is essentially accepting the wishes of those 15 per cent of the people who did participate in the last election and supported this,” he said, referring to the results of an ultimately non-binding referendum which saw a narrow majority of voters support the move, but with only a limited number of eligible voters participating in that election. Those councillors who supported the change argued that, under the new system, all voters would have a chance to help choose all members of council, rather than just the reeve and their ward representatives. “The way we have it now, yes, we’re guaranteed representation from each of the three former municipalities,” said Wise. “But, the smaller wards, Sheffield and Newburgh, are actually guaranteed that they don’t get majority representation on council. In Newburgh, you get to vote for a councillor and a reeve. Five other people on that council, you never get to vote for. They are making decisions about your community throughout the four-year term of council.” With at-large voting, said Davison, “those people who are sitting around this table will be able to sit here knowing that they have the confidence of everybody.” “I believe this is a business, I look at it as a business,” said Bearance. “If I had $10,000 to invest, I would look for the very best person I could find to bring me a return on my investment. The way I look at it, you people pay the bills, and we make the decisions where it’s going to be spent. It only stands to reason for me that everyone sitting in this audience should be able to choose who they want spending their money. It makes more sense to me than anything else. As time goes on, I think that will happen.” Wise also said the change solves the ongoing difficulty in choosing a deputy-reeve, a position that will now be selected at-large. “It’s a terrible way to start off a term of council with a divisive choice among councillors as to who gets to be deputy reeve. The public has no voice in this little election among seven people, and it’s not a good way to start,” he said. He also said those concerned about retaining local representation can vote for candidates from their community, to the exclusion of other candidates. “You don’t have to vote for every single one of those councillors. If only one (candidate) is from your particular bailiwick, you can just vote for that one person. You can talk to your friends and neighbours to do the same. It’s strategic voting. That will stack the deck in favour of your local representative.” In his remarks, Ward 3 councillor Clarence Kennedy said township residents wouldn’t see a negative impact on how services have been delivered in the municipality. “There will be no loss of service or program to any area, i.e. ward,” he said. “All three wards will benefit as they have since amalgamation.”

Local OPP pilot new education program Napanee detachment in classrooms as part of KIDS initiative, aimed at keeping students safe BY ASHLEY FOLEY Staff Reporter

APANEE OPP Constable Jackie Perry has introduced a new youth justice education program to iron out any kinks before the official launch of the provincewide program this fall. The OPP KIDS program began in Selby Public School earlier this month. Cst. Perry talked to Grade 8 students about drugs use and abuse. “The definition of a drug is any substance, other than food, that you put into your body that changes the way your mind or body functions,” she told the students in her first lesson. “Isn’t any drug, used improperly, a problem?” asked one student, which Cst. Perry confirmed was true before launching into a classroom-wide discussion comparing over-thecounter and illegal drug use. Cst. Perry discussed tobacco, alcohol, illegal and legal medications, as well as energy drinks during the session. But drugs are not all the KIDS program is about: KIDS stands for

N

‘Knowledge, Issues, Decisions and Support’ and teaches on five different topics: Youth and law, which deals with harassment, stalking and intimidation; peer-to-peer relationships, discussing ‘flirting vs. hurting’ and how to be respectful of others, the opposite sex and healthy dating relationships; online and social media awareness, which teaches online safety and cyber bullying; mental health awareness, explaining the warning signs and where to go for help; and drug awareness. “I really like (the mental health) section, it gets the kids thinking about being tolerant and understanding a lot of youth go through depression and being able to identify it and help,” said Cst. Perry, after her lesson. The OPP KIDS curriculum’s ‘knowledge’ component teaches what students need to know about the topics discussed, whereas ‘issues’ deals with how to deal with the problems and who to speak to. ‘Decisions’ teaches how students can make smart choices and ‘support’ teaches where to go for help. “I’m glad to see them encompassing everything.

They’ve really done a lot of work in getting this curriculum together. It fits right in with the Ontario curriculum for the schools,” said Cst. Perry. “This was given to all the community service officers throughout Ontario to look at and of course we have to get board approval before we can launch it.” Though all OPP community services officers have received the program, few are trying it out before it is launched this fall, as Cst. Perry has chosen to do. She said this would allow her and other officers to ensure the program works most effectively and efficiently for its intended audiences. The program can be altered on a school-toschool basis, depending on which issues need more attention in that area. The purpose of the program is to connect with students, reduce self-victimization and prevent crime, explained Cst.Perry. It is being introduced to students around the Grade 6 level and higher, because these students are identified as “young persons” under the Youth Criminal Justice Act and can be found criminally responsible at that age.

Don’t wait till this happens to you!

A half-century of volunteering at L&A Hospital BY ASHLEY FOLEY Staff Reporter

into a hospital-wide volunteer program. Jacqueline Gordanier has volunteered in the hospital for more than 45 years and was happy to give her time to the facility because she was grateful to have a hospital in the community. “I was so happy that we had a hospital close because we had to go to Kingston. My three boys were all born in Kingston so I thought, ‘Oh it would be nice to have (a hospital) closer.’ Then they said they needed volunteers for the coffee shop so I said OK,” she said. She said a lot has changed since then, commenting on the size of the

program; the group once known as ‘the Auxiliary’ has extended into many more areas since those early days of the hospital. “It has sure gotten bigger. The coffee shop was pretty much the only place (with volunteers) but now there are so many different places,” said Gordanier. Susan Snider, volunteer services treasurer, said the hospital has 145 frontline volunteers and 150 volunteers working behind-thescenes helping with crafts, knitting and other contributions. The L&A Hospital Auxiliary initially formed to help fund hospital equipment.

Thank you to the many volunteers who assist in the delivery of county services and everyone who volunteers throughout our county community.

Over the past 50 years, the volunteers have raised $1,247,440. Each volunteer has their own reason for donating their time to the hospital but they all have one thing in common: their passion for helping others. Beth McPherson, who has volunteered for 15 years, began helping after visiting someone in the hospital. “I was here visiting somebody and stopped in the coffee shop to get a coffee and said, ‘This is so nice to be able to get a coffee and a cookie or whatever,’ and they said, ‘Well, would you like to help’ so I did,” she said. “It’s very enjoyable, you

A huge thank you to all the parent volunteers who give so much of their time to make all aspects of our club run the way it does.

VOLUNTEERS | Open house next week CONTINUED FROM PAGE 16 On one occasion, he visited with a woman from Montreal whose husband was in the hospital. She had so much gratitude for the hospitalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s volunteers that Hughes felt all his hours were well worthwhile. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She walked up and down the hall two or three times and would stop and talk to me. She couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get over how friendly the people were here and how all the volunteers were ready to help and would ask her if

she needed anything,â&#x20AC;? said Hughes. Ron Kidd, who is going on his third year volunteering with the hospital, said he feels a sense of community among the volunteers, staff, patients and visitors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I like the hospital because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a community hospital and I work with people who come in from the smaller town and they come in here, they talk about how their towns are doingâ&#x20AC;Ś itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a community and you can get to know them,â&#x20AC;? said Kidd. He recalls being a visitor

in the hospital and receiving extra care and attention in the family rooms so he makes sure to do the same for others. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some of the people who come in here, they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t leave, they die here. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got family rooms here so I like to go down there. I had a cousin that died in here so I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nice that this hospital has those rooms because sometimes you stay 24 hours around.â&#x20AC;? Though all the volunteers are assigned to a certain job, whether it be at the

coffee shop, welcoming at the front entrance, selling HELPP tickets or in the emergency room, each of them say comforting others brings them the most joy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so nice to help someone there. It feels so comfortable,â&#x20AC;? said McPherson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It gives you a good feeling,â&#x20AC;? added Kidd. The hospital is hosting an open house this Monday, from 2 to 7 p.m. in celebration of 50 years of volunteering. This will give local residents a chance to meet volunteers and learn more about volunteering at the hospital.

We would not be the success that we are without all of your help.

has gone.â&#x20AC;? Randy Harris, manager of Waste Managementâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Richmond Landfill, said that the company had no plans to drop the BREC project, stating that the ongoing environmental assessment will investigate all concerns relating to the project. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in the middle of a very extensive environmental assessment for BREC right now. The information that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll gather will be presented to the general public and discussed, and any concerns or questions will be answered at public meetings or in private if theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d prefer. Then weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll submit that, when itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s completed, to the Ministry of the Environment to determine its technical merit,â&#x20AC;? he said. Harris also said that the offsite testing results are being addressed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are some elevated aesthetic parameters in a (neighbouring) property and we found them. We found them because we had done a lot of work in finding the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;low headâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; for the groundwater and where the groundwater flows,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re putting in additional wells. If anything, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re showing that (the groundwater) can be monitored.â&#x20AC;? Later, he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is going to be a lot of discussionâ&#x20AC;Ś and we look forward to that discussion. There is a lot of history with modern-day liners and technical discussions that exactly address those concerns. I hope these folksâ&#x20AC;Ś take part in those discussions. It will be up to us to show them and the ministry that the groundwater will be protected with these types of liners, along with a monitoring program. Those discussions are coming up and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking forward to them.â&#x20AC;? Lindgren said that if WM continues to proceed with the BREC environmental assessment, the company can expect a fight. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If they want to keep that train wreck in motion, fine, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s their choice,â&#x20AC;? Lindgren said at the press conference. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I guess I put them on notice that we intend to drop the gloves and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll pummel the documents until we get the result weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking for, which is another rejection of the same dumb landfilling idea at the same dumb site.â&#x20AC;? Mondayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s press conference contrasted sharply with Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s preliminary hearing, which was focussed on issues in which the two sides were in agreement rather than at loggerheads. With Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hearing, WM, the MOE, the CCCTE and others were able to reach agreements on some outstanding issues relating to the assessment and maintenance of monitoring wells; a new and extensive odour monitoring program; expanded testing parameters for potential leachate contamination; and a new and expanded

public notification system should an event occur at the site. All these issues were part of the CCCTEâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s appeal of the Richmond Landfill closure plan. With an interim order issued by the ERT, however, the new provisions have been added to the plan and are no longer in dispute. At the preliminary hearing, Lindgren says the hearing â&#x20AC;&#x201D; expected in October, if there is one needed at all â&#x20AC;&#x201D; will be focused on â&#x20AC;&#x153;the contents of the siteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s environmental monitoring plan, and the nature and extent of the contingency measures that might be at this particular site.â&#x20AC;? The parties are expected to continue to hold discussions regarding the outstanding issues between now and the fall. The provisions set out in the interim order should come into force within the next few weeks. Representatives from the CCCTE on Monday argued that many of those now-agreed-upon provisions and protocols should have been in place much earlier. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re talking about is a whole series of ongoing investigations that need to be undertaken, that should have been undertaken a decade or more ago. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re basically playing catch-up work, trying to bring this site into the modern day and the hydrogeological understanding up to the modern day,â&#x20AC;? said Ruland of the old Richmond Landfill site. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not forget that for 15 years weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been making recommendations to deaf ears, and we had to drag them kicking and screaming to this ERT to finally get them to sit down and seriously consider the recommendations that Wilf and Richard and many of us in this room have been making for a very long time,â&#x20AC;? said Mike Bossio, chair of the CCCTE. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whatever way WM wants to try to position this, the fact of the matter is that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done everything they can to not find leachate on this site. Now weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to force them to be accountable and do everything possible to find it, to find it and try to figure out what to do about it.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are going to be questions on BREC,â&#x20AC;? said Harris immediately following Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hearing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The BREC project includes a state-of-the-art, 21st Century landfill, engineered properly, and there are going to be questions on that. Instead of doing this in the press, saying, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;It canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be done safely or monitored safely,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; I challenge (the CCCTE and others) to come and sit down at the table, just like we did with the closed Richmond Landfill, and have technical discussions. If there are ways to improve on the liner design or the monitoring, or doubts, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s have that discussion.â&#x20AC;?

Hawks ready to take to the rugby pitch NDSS Senior boys’ side raring to chase after the KASSAA title that eluded them last May

BY ADAM PRUDHOMME Beaver Sports

ager to avenge last season's early playoff exit, the NDSS Golden Hawks senior boys rugby team will begin their path to redemption this afternoon as they open the 2013 KASSAA season. They’ll take on the KCVI Blues at Queen's Nixon Field, their first game since a disappointing 17-13 loss at the hands of Regi in last May’s semifinals. They'll do so with a nice balance of returning players with a chip on their shoulder and first time seniors with a history of winning. “This is a very experienced group,” said Hawks head coach Jim McKinney. “There’s 12 starters from the junior team last year, and they went undefeated last year. The support is really strong. What really makes this exciting is there’s five returning grads.” The Grade 11s that are making the jump to senior have the added advantage of having played for McKinney when he coached the U-18 Napanee Outlaws last summer. The Outlaws, made up of mostly Hawk

E

players, play in the recreational Eastern Ontario Rugby Union, a league not associated with the high school. “They’ve already had a season of senior ball,” said McKinney. “They’re way ahead.” After this afternoon’s match their second game of the season is scheduled for Tuesday, at home against Sydenham. By opening against the Blues and Golden Eagles, traditionally two of the lower tier teams, they have a good chance to get off to a fast start. Given their perennial lofty expectations, a fast start could help the team relax a bit as they gear up for the grind of a short but physical season. “It puts a whole lot of pressure on them,” McKinney says of the school's reputation for fielding contending rugby teams year after year. “You can hear them in the hallways. There’s a significant amount of pressure they put on themselves. Sometimes I think it’s too bad. There’s certainly a target on us. As soon as we start the season off the Kingston teams are already gunning for us.” McKinney says the trick is to use that attitude

If there is a group that can live up to the expectations, this one appears to be it. McKinney says he’s got two props, Brandon

Tucker and Christian Howes that could be among the league’s best. Unfortunately for the junior squad, the seniors’ gain is their loss. With 12 of their starters moving up to Grade 11, there’s a noticeably less experienced group of Grade 9s and 10s

left behind. Try out numbers were low this year, giving the coaching staff nearly half the bodies they usually have to work with. Those that have shown up, are a committed group. “They’re going to get lots of playing time,” said McKinney.

Last year the juniors were a perfect 6-0 in the regular season, knocking off Holy Cross in overtime to claim the KASSAA crown. Their season gets underway Tuesday when they host Sydenham at 5 p.m.

New look Hawks expect to win Girls rugby team looks to repeat

BY ADAM PRUDHOMME Staff Sports

ear after year the NDSS Golden Hawks girls rugby team manages to produce a competitive team while avoiding the dreaded ‘rebuilding’ word. This year figures to be no different, despite seeing six key players graduate and a couple more opting to focus on their studies this year instead of sports. There will be a definite different look when the KASSAA season kicks off this afternoon. That doesn’t mean this year will be a write-off while they develop for the future. Head coach Sean Dunleavy is quite pleased with the look of his squad and has every intention of repeating as KASSAA champions. “With the dedication

A total of 12 teams took part, six of which were female, marking the first time the tournament has featured women’s teams. Entry fees paid by the teams, as well as money raised from raffle tickets, went in support of the United Way. Each team got three games but, in the spirit of playing for charity, no champion was declared.

After capturing the KASSAA title last year, the NDSS girls Hawks rugby team has visions of another deep run this season. and team sense that is always present, there are many returning athletes who have been championship mainstays as team leaders and players who know how to perform under pressure,” said Dunleavy.

He points to returnees SaraJane Pratt, Hailey Bender and Emily Kimmett to provide leadership that they’ve developed since playing at the junior level.

Napanee’s Macpherson House has a full slate of activities lined up for the spring and summer season, commencing this Saturday with a pancake breakfast. From 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. the historic house will host a pancake buffet, cooked right on the fire in the summer kitchen. Adults are $7 at the door while kids aged six to 12 are $4. Ordinarily the breakfast is used as the official opening of the museum after its winter layoff. This year the house didn’t really undergo an off-season, opting to host events throughout the winter to build more interest in the site. “We had a huge success (with winter events),” said Karen Price, who just celebrated one year as the house’s curator this week. “We had a new March Break program which had a waiting list, which was really positive for the house. We know there’s a demand for it.” Price says the increased interest over the last few weeks has built momentum for this season, allowing them to create an ambitious summer schedule. “We’re hoping to do four weeks of camp this year instead of two,” said Price. “We want to do two weeks in July and two weeks in August. The traditional cream teas are (happening) this year. We’re doing the

Strawberry Social, we’re going to have the coffee house (musical performances) again.” Along with reaching out to the younger generation, Price says they’re targeting adults who haven’t been to the house in a while as well. On Mother’s Day, May 11, sons and daughters can treat their moms to a traditional tea at the house while on May 18 they’ll hold their annual heritage plant sale. On June 8 they’ll be hosting a breadmaking workshop while June 22 is their annual Strawberry Social. Canadian gardening guru Mark Cullen is scheduled to drop by the house on June 26 to chat about cultivating the perfect garden. His visit is presented by the Napanee Chamber of Commerce. In an effort to attract the male population for a visit they’re planning a fishing day in July on the banks of the Napanee River behind the house. In order to keep the momentum rolling and to make their busy season run smoothly, Price says they’ll need community support. Price says volunteers, particularly teenagers, are always needed. To find out who to volunteer, call 613354-5982. They can also drop by during Saturday’s pancake breakfast for more information. Located at 180 Elizabeth St., the 1826 structure was once home to Allan Macpherson who played a huge role in shaping Napanee to what it is today. A cousin or Sir John A. Macdonald, he hosted Canada’s first prime Minister on a few occasions at the historic house.

MEMORIAMS

BRUCE - In loving memory of a dear husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather, Andrew, who left us April 15, 1993. Sadly missed along life’s way, Quietly remembered every day, No longer in our lives to share, But in our hearts he’s always there. Lovingly remembered by wife Mildred, Fae, Larry, Wayne, Dale and families.

MEMORIAMS

T H E

ABRAMS - In loving memory of Barb, who passed away April 23, 2002. If tears could build a stairway And memories a lane, I’d walk right up to Heaven And bring you home again. Sadly missed by husband Clifford. CONWAY - Beloved memories of our dear Mother, Kathleen, who passed away April 18, 2009. Memories are treasured moments usually shared by families of a dear one who will live on and on. These are just a few our family remembers of our dear sweet Mom. The gentleness of her touch, the softness of her skin, the smell of her perfume, the warmth of her hugs and her love of life and laughter with family and friends, all never to be forgotten. When Mother came into our room to tuck us in at night, Her face would look so gentle in the soft bedside light And though we might not always behaved our best that day, She let us know she loved us, in just that special way, It could be just a little pat or a warm hug, Then we’d settle down to dreamland feeling safe and snug And as we grew from childhood And had families of our own, That special time of night remained When we would all come home, Mother was blessed with a sense of humour, Sweet laughter, a beauty deep within, We never knew what would surface As we tried to settle in, A midnight snack was always a must And then a bedside chat, Sometimes a brief showing of some new earrings Or just a little this or that, We would finally settle down in our bed With books and snacks in hand, But we knew with certainty the night was not about to end, We waited for Mom’s sweet voice to call out, putting an end to any gloom, Good-night Mary Ellen, good-night Jim Bob would pass from room to room, Mom knows how much she’s loved and missed, Silent tears shed behind each of our doors And I know, that she knows we’d give anything to hear her voice once more. Always remembered with love, Gerry, Betty, Judy, Lynn and Oral, Brad and Pam and all their families. FITCHETT - In loving memory of our father, father-in-law and Papa, Duane, who passed away April 20, 2004. No longer in our lives to share, But in our thoughts, you’re always there. Lovingly remembered by Alex, Pamela, Caleb and Madison. FRALICK - In loving memory of beloved granddaughter, niece and cousin, Steacy Lynn, who left us April 20, 2009. AFTERGLOW I’d like the memory of me to be a happy one, I’d like to leave an afterglow of smiles when life is done, I’d like to leave an echo whispering softly down the ways Of happy times and laughing times And bright and sunny days, I’d like the tears of those who grieve To dry before the sun, Of happy memories that I leave, when life is done. Always loved and missed by Nanny Shurtliffe, uncles, aunts and cousins. FRALICK - Steacy Lynn. April 20, 2009. Another year without you Has quickly come around, It still seems like yesterday Since you were Heaven bound, I cherish all the years That we spent together, Memories you gave to me, Brighten stormy weather, We speak your name so freely And we laugh of your pranks, For the love of life you shared, We can only give our thanks, Though I cannot see you, My love will never part, For you my darling daughter, I carry you in my heart!! Loving and missing, Mom, Dan, Ian, Sarah, Kyle, Jorja and Stella. HUDSON - In loving memory of my parents, Arthur (d. April 20, 1972) and Helen (d. August 24, 1986). Those we love don’t go away, They walk beside us every day, Unseen, unheard, but always near, Still loved, still missed and very dear. Love, Glenn and Ida Hudson.

MEMORIAMS

HUFF/SKINNER - Helen Huff passed away April 21, 2009. Greatly missed by son Wayne and grandchildren. Marilyn Skinner passed away April 23, 1989. Will always be missed by husband Wayne and family. We think of you with love today, But that is nothing new, We thought about you yesterday And the day before that too, We will think of you tomorrow And will our whole lives through, For the day we fail to think of you, Is the day we will be with you. KIRK - In loving memory of my husband, Roly, who passed away April 20, 2006. God’s gift to man is life eternal, Thus His child shall never die, After earthly cares are over, Reign triumphant with Him on high, So this good-bye is not forever, Only for a length of time, Until again we’re reunited, See his smile and hold his hand. Forever loved and missed by your wife Berniece. NORMILE - Sylvia Florence. September 12, 1935 - April 18, 2008. I thought of you today, But that is nothing new, I thought of you yesterday And I 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. With love now and always, Robert. OSTER - In loving memory of David, who passed away April 10, 1996. As the warm sun brings The first signs of spring, We think of you, Dad. With the robin’s song And as the days grow long, We hear your laughter, Dad. 鵹鵺

As the daffodils grow And the green grass shows, We know you’re watching, Dad.

WATTS - In loving memory of a dear husband, best friend and soul mate, William (Wes), who passed away April 17, 2012. One year has passed since you were torn away from me so suddenly my love, Though my heart still beats-it is without yours joined, How it hurts, my Sweet William, to beat alone, I will forever love you Sweet Pea For all that we were, For all that we will be again. Love Eternal. Mary. 鵹鵺

The Ag & Rural Update is an electronic bulletin that is produced weekly by staff at the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture & Food, (OMAF), Brighton Resource Centre. It is distributed free to subscribers. Not all of the information used in this farm calendar is supplied by the electronic bulletin.

Canada and Ontario Announce Growing Forward 2 - The provincial and federal governments are working to help Ontario's agri-food industry grow profits, expand markets and manage risk through Growing Forward 2. Premier Wynne, in her capacity as Agriculture and Food Minister, signed a fiveyear, multi-million dollar agreement with the federal government focusing on innovation, competitiveness and market development. It includes $2 billion for federal-provincial-territorial strategic initiatives, which is a 50 per cent increase in cost-shared funding. Ontario's Growing Forward 2 programs will help the industry capitalize on opportunities and contribute to economic growth. Information sessions and workshops will be available in May, 2013, with applications opening in June 2013 for provincial programs.

This renewed grant program is one part of the new Ontario government’s comprehensive local food strategy. Ontario’s agri-food industry employs 700,000 people, and contributes $34 billion to the economy. We know that supporting local food supports a strong Ontario economy, and that this Greenbelt Fund program has supported a $26 million increase in the amount of Ontario foods purchased by the BPS. For every one dollar invested by the province has supported the purchase of five dollars’ worth of Ontario local food.

Five locals shaved their heads and raised over $2,000 for cancer research. Above (from left), Boyd Tryan, Connie Tryan, supporter Kyle Flieler, Roxanne Brownlee and David Swann show off their freshly shaved heads.

Shear determination as five shave heads for cancer research BY ASHLEY FOLEY Staff Reporter

Five locals shaved their heads this weekend to support of those close to them battling cancer and to raise funds for research. In total, five people shaved their heads and $2,096 was raised. A silent pie auction was also held at the Arden Standard Church on Sunday with 26 pies. Roxanne Brownlee began the initiative after

her good friend Sandra Noreen Baese lost her battle to cancer. “She just passed away on Jan. 23,” she said, but not before she told her friend of her plans to fundraise for cancer and shave her head. “She said to me, ‘Figures, you’re such a goof,’ and she did warn me not go down to skin in case I had bumps in my head and told us all to wear hats with lining in them. She had wanted to cut my hair, she was going to do it, but unfortu-

nately she wasn’t able to.” The other supporters who shaved their heads and raised funds were Brownlee’s uncle Boyd Tryan and his wife Connie, a friend David Swann and Kyle Flieler, who has a nine-year-old stepson with leukemia. “None of us have done this before,” said Brownlee, stating they all have their own reasons for supporting the event, such as Brownlee’s connection to Baese and Flieler’s connection to Josh.

A local teen is facing charges following a collision in downtown Napanee on Friday night. The Napanee OPP detachment reports that at 9:40 p.m., police were dispatched to a fail-to-remain motor vehicle collision on Dundas Street East, just east of Centre Street. Police say that a black 2000 Ford Explorer travelling south on Centre Street turned left onto Dundas Street. The driver lost control of the vehicle and struck a silver vehicle parked on the northeast corner of the intersection. Officers located the suspect vehicle nearby and arrested a 16-year-old male; he was charged with resisting arrest. Further charges are pending. Police say they are attempting to locate the owner of the parked vehicle that was damaged. The vehicle is believed to be a mid-1990s, silver vehicle, possibly a Saturn station wagon, and it would have sustained damage to the driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s side. If you have any information in relation to this incident please contact the Napanee OPP or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or online at tipsubmit.com

The Napanee Pioneers Square Dance Club held an Elvisinspired dance and pie night at Southview Public School on Friday in hopes of raising funds to give back to the community. Muriel Brough, treasurer, and Jacky Patriquin, president, said the club is a non-profit organization, which is always looking for ways to support local endeavors. Which organizations or projects they will support this year has not yet been determined. The big attraction for the evening was having an Elvis impressionist there, both as entertainment and as the square dance caller. Berry Chumbley performed as Elvis for the annual Elvis night. Nine square dancing clubs participated in the event, with clubs from Peterborough, Trenton, Belleville, Cobourg and Kingston joining the fun. “Sept. 13 we start our new season so we hope to get more people involved,” said Patriquin, stating there is room for more square dancers in the club, ranging from beginners to experienced dancers, participating individually or in pairs. Brough said it’s also great exercise. After a night of square dancing, a person will have walked about five kilometers, she explained. Brough said it is also a great social environment, mentioning square dancing is how she met her husband. The Napanee Pioneer Square Dance Club is hosting a guest night on May 31 at Southview, from 7:30 to 10 p.m. for those interested in joining. A potluck dinner, put on by club members, will be provided.

SOFT WATER SOLUTIONS

WATER SOFTENER BENEFITS • PREVENT COSTLY SCALE BUILD-UP IN PIPES, FAUCETS & SHOWERHEADS • AVOID PREMATURE FAILURE OF WATER HEATERS & OTHER WATER USING APPLIANCES

• 29% LOWER WATER HEATING COST

HOW DO SOFTENERS WORK? • Raw water runs through a bed of sodium charged resin • The hardness ions are exchanged with sodium ions • Eventually the resin contains only hardness minerals and has to be regenerated • The control valve monitors water usage and regenerates only when necessary • The resin is backwahsed to rinse away impurities • A brine solution is then drawn through the bed and hardness ions exchange for the sodium ions • Hardness ions are then rinsed to the drain • The softener is now ready to soften again CHOOSING THE RIGHT SOFTENER

Salt & Water Efficiency Salt and water efficiency should be your most important consideration. Higher efficiency systems may cost a little more but very quickly pay for themselves in water and salt savings. High efficiency systems have adjustable salt and cycle time settings that can be adjusted to meet your specific water requirements. Inefficient mechanically metered softeners have fixed cycles set for worst case scenarios. System Size or Capacity Sizing is based on wter hardness and # of people in your home which determines how much ion exchange resin is in the pressure tank (expressed in cubic feet). A common error is to oversize the system. While frequency of regeneration will vary, the salt and water usage will be similar so why pay more? On extreme cases, oversizing can cause hard water to channel through.

What are you doing to protect the planet? T H E

N A P A N E E

Celebrated every April 22, Earth Day is the largest, most celebrated environmental event worldwide. More than 6 million Canadians join 1 billion people in over 170 countries in staging events and projects to address local environmental issues. Nearly every school child in Canada takes part in an Earth Day activity. Environmental challenges abound as our daily actions pollute and degrade the fragile environment that humans and wildlife depend on to survive. What can we do? Earth Day provides the opportunity for positive actions and results. First launched as an environmental awareness event in the United States in 1970, Earth Day (April 22) is celebrated as the birth of the environmental movement. Earth Day is a powerful catalyst for change. The first Earth Day, spearheaded by Wisconsin Governor Gaylord Nelson and Harvard University student Denis Hayes, involved 20 million participants in teach-ins that addressed decades of environmental pollution. The event inspired the US Congress to pass clean air and water acts, and establish the Environmental Protection Agency to research and monitor environmental issues and enforce environmental laws. In 1990, two million Canadians joined 200 million people in 141 nations in celebrating the first International Earth Day. In many countries, the global event brought pressure on heads of state to take part in the UN Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro to address issues such as climate change and the world wide loss of species. In Canada, Earth Day has grown into Earth Week and even Earth Month to accommodate the profusion of events and projects. They range from large public events, such as Victoria’s Earth Walk (5,000 participants), Edmonton’s Earth Day Festival at Hawrelak Park (30,000 participants), and Oakville, Ontario’s Waterways Clean-up (2,000 participants) to the thousands of small, private events staged by schools, employee groups and community groups.

Eco-conscious ways to tend to your lawn

A push mower that does not rely on gas to work is one way homeowners can take a more eco-friendly approach to lawn care.

Many homeowners are constantly on the lookout for ways to make their homes more environmentally friendly. Such a pursuit is both noble because it helps the environment and practical because it often saves money. While there are many eco-friendly improvements homeowners make inside their homes, it's important to note that there are several ways for men and women to be more environmentally conscious outside of their homes as well. Lawn care can be done in a way that's conscious of the environment, and the results can be just as appealing as if the lawn were tended to without regard for the planet. The following are just a few of the many ways homeowners can adopt more eco-friendly practices when tending to their lawns. * Be conscientious when watering. Overwatering a lawn is pretty common, especially during the dog days of summer, when homeowners try to overcompensate for hot days with excessive watering. The growth of moss on sidewalks or the driveway is a telltale sign that you're watering too much, as is a standing pool of water on the grass. Homeowners who find it difficult to determine when their lawns have gotten enough water can purchase an intelligent irrigation control system that adapts your watering to a lawn's needs as well as the weather. * Turn back the clock on your tools. Before gas mowers became the standard, man-powered push mowers were used to cut the grass. Such mowers still exist, and they require no fuel, making them a more eco-friendly option than their gas-powered counterparts. Along those same lines, leaf blowers are a far less friendly way to rake leaves in the fall or clean the yard after a long winter. While there's no denying

their effectiveness, leaf blowers need gas to operate, while a rake just requires some elbow grease and a little extra time out in the yard. * Stay local. If you need to plant new grass or you're beginning a garden, then stick with local plants, flowers and grasses rather than more exotic options that are not native to your area.

Plants, flowers and grasses that aren't native to your region will require more maintenance and often more watering. That added maintenance might prove to be a headache, and that excessive watering will not be beneficial to the environment. Native plants, flowers and grasses have already adapted to your climate, and they can be provide just as much aesthetic appeal as more exotic alternatives. * Avoid pesticides whenever possible. Many homeowners treat their lawns with pesticides, which can make a lawn look beautiful. But that beauty typically comes at a steep price, impacting local wildlife and perhaps even the local water supply. When pesticides are applied to a lawn, the chemicals within may run off into your local water supply. If you can't avoid pesticides entirely, then do your best to minimize how often you use them. * Don't let rain water go to waste. Rain barrels are a great way to make good use of rain. Rain barrels can be placed beneath a gutter's downspout, where they will collect water that can be reused throughout your property to water the lawn and garden. Rain barrels can be relatively expensive, but over time they will pay for themselves as you save money on your water bill. Lawn care can be conducted in a way that benefits the environment as well as your bottom line.
