Citizens group files landfill appeal Latest move sets Environmental Review Tribunal hearing process in motion BEAVER STAFF WRITER A group of local concerned citizens announced on Monday that it was taking the next step in seeking changes to the Richmond Landfill’s licence.

filed its notice of appeal to the Ontario Environmental Review Tribunal against seven conditions contained in the site licence for the now-closed Richmond Landfill, owned by Waste Management. Just less than one month ago, the committee was granted leave to appeal those conditions by the ERT. In its decision to grant leave to

appeal, the ERT said that it “appears there is good reason to believe that no reasonable person, having regard to relevant law and government policies, could have made the decision to issue the Environmental Compliance Approval to Waste Management of Canada Corporation, and that it appears that the decision in respect of which an Appeal is

Denbigh ambulance base stays

Lennox Agricultural Society

County elects to reduce hours at most northerly station

esidents in the Denbigh area will not be left without an ambulance base, thanks to a Lennox and Addington County council decision last week. A motion calling for reduced service at the site, instead of closure, was ultimately passed. Brian Smith, Lennox and Addington County’s Director of Emergency and Long-Term care, said he believes it was a good decision for the entire county. “Council asked us to come back with various, options which we did, and

R

six various options were reported to council,� he said. “Council ultimately selected (the option) to operate a 12-hour, sevenday-a-week base at Denbigh.� While he says that the county would likely retain the same base, this represents a 50 per cent reduction to the existing 24/7 service. “There will be no layoffs but we will be looking to re-allocate the four fulltime equipment paramedics, elsewhere within Lennox and Addington County,� he said. “We have to come back to council in the near future with a follow up report.�

The fate of Denbigh land ambulance base has been an issue for council since last year, when a possible consolidation of bases was presented as part of a consultant’s report. At the time, the IBI Consultants report recommended that the Denbigh base be closed and a new one open in Loyalist Township. The cost-saving measure would have impacted response times throughout Lennox and Addington. That report recommended that the Denbigh site be closed and its services be consolidated at a new site between Northbrook and Denbigh. In September 2011,

Greater Napanee Councillor Gord Schermerhorn said he shared the concerns of Denbigh area residents. “Once you have a service it’s hard to take something away,� he said. “I do believe if that should happen at any certain point in time, I would like to see a post in the Denbigh area.� In an interview with the Beaver, Smith said the ultimate decision came down to that. “I think council reached an informed decision based on the facts of the entire EMS operation,� he said. “I think this is good for the entire population of Lennox and Addington County.�

GRAND OPENING

Every spring we are approached by many people asking the same question, “How do I clean or prepare my decking and/or wood surfaces for a maintenance coat?” We have the perfect recipe for you. This recipe is tried, tested, and very cost effective! It has been used for years with much success. You may use this recipe on new and weathered wood surfaces. It is also a good maintenance recipe for wood treated with a water seal, furniture and fencing. Because of the ingredients, be sure to wet and cover any nearby plants with plastic and remove the plastic covering as soon as the job is complete. Please wear clothing that will protect you from the solution as well as protective eye wear, gloves and footwear. Never let this solution dry on the wood surface. If necessary, add additional water to the area and work in small sections to ensure that the solution does not dry out. If your project requires sanding and/or filling, be sure to allow ample time for the filler to dry and remove all sanding residue prior to scrubbing. EQUIPMENT NEEDED: • Water (a clean good supply of it) • Tri-Sodium Phosphate (TSP) • Liquid Bleach • Garden Sprayer • Scrub Brush (we sell brush heads to fit your broom handles) • Pressure Washer (or a hose with good water pressure) • Protective clothing, eyewear, gloves, footwear HOW TO: • Spray the surface with clean water, wetting down all of the wood • Clean the surface with a solution of 4 ounces of TSP, 1 quart of liquid bleach in 3 quarts of water – apply this solution to the surface with a garden sprayer or mop • Let the solution sit on the wood for 15-20 minutes. During this period scrub the surface with a hard bristled brush to aid in the removal of excess mill glaze and/or weathering. Do not let the solution dry on the wood! Keep it wet!!! • Power-wash the solution from the wood with clean water. If you are using a pressure washer, do not exceed 500 p.s.i.; doing so could damage the wood. Keep the nozzle at least 1 foot above the surface of the wood for full effectiveness. • Let the surface dry for 3 consecutive, good drying days. • If there are any glossy patches left, lightly sand with 80-120 grit sandpaper. In the case of wood that has previously been treated with wax, silicone or any other water repellent, allow the wood to weather for a minimum of 12 months prior to cleaning with this recipe. If you are unsure, never hesitate to call or stop by. Once the wood is dry, we can discuss and supply the best coating suited for your needs.

Public Information Notice Sanitary Sewer Fog Testing Program Dear Resident/Business Owner,

Testing will be conducted west of Centre Street, north of the Napanee River, south of the CN tracks and east of Richmond Park Drive. Please note that although the targeted work area is within the above defined boundaries it is possible for small amounts of fog to extend past the intended limits.

The testing will involve blowing a non-toxic and non-staining white fog (ie: like that type used in films and stage productions) into the sanitary sewer system via the manholes on the street. If the storm and sanitary sewer systems are interconnected, smoke will rise out of the roof downspouts, property drains and catch basins, thus indicating a direct cross-connection between the two sewer systems.

The purpose of this notice is to explain the testing program, how it will be done and the impact it may have on the plumbing within your home or business. The testing program is scheduled to commence on April 26, 2012 and will be limited between the hours of 8:00am and 4:00pm, Monday to Friday. Please note that GNU staff is available to discuss any concerns in detail.

Although this test will occur without being noticed by most residents/businesses, there is a remote possibility that fog may enter your home/business. If fog enters, please report it immediately to Greater Napanee Utilities (outside wearing the bright yellow vests) or call Greater Napanee Utilities at the number indicated below for additional details. Although the fog is non-toxic and non-staining, persons with asthmatic conditions may experience some temporary discomfort if fog should enter their home/business. Should the fog enter the home/business, opening the windows and doors can easily eliminate it.

It is recommended that you take the following precautions to help ensure that the fog does not enter your home/business:

1. If you have showers, dishwashers, sinks, toilets or other fixtures that are not often used we recommend that you pour water down each fixture to ensure that fog does not enter your home or business through a dry trap.

2. Make sure your basement floor drains and traps have water in them. Pour water down each drain and check to see that the trap is not dry. You should be able to see water when you look down into the floor drain.

3. Make sure that roughed-in plumbing drains are securely sealed with duct tape. A cracked or open cap on this type of plumbing drain or piping may allow the fog to enter.

Please note that should fog enter your home or business it indicates that the plumbing is faulty and we recommend you consult with a licensed plumbing contractor for further investigation. If fog enters it is possible that odours/gases from the sanitary sewer system may also enter your home.

Should you have any questions during the testing, please feel free to contact any employee working in the immediate area or call Greater Napanee Utilities @ 354-9338.

Farmers encountering endangered species on the farm can face serious financial repercussions due to the loss of the use of their farmland. That’s because once a species is considered a Species at Risk in Ontario, it receives automatic protection for both the species itself, and for its habitat. The Ontario Federation of Agriculture will be seeking amendments to the Endangered Species Act that would help address the important issues of biodiversity, while being respectful of farmers who rely on their land for their livelihood.

E D I TO R I A L

A remarkable document S the patriation of the Constitution of Canada and the establishment of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms worth celebrating? It’s a question that’s being asked by some these days, since the Charter’s 30th anniversary just passed this week. However, the federal government didn’t do much of anything to celebrate the ‘Canadianization’ of the Constitution and the establishment of the Charter, and that is resulting in some criticism. Some say there are politics at work in the failure to mark the anniversary in a significant way. Of course, the patriation of the Constitution was orchestrated by the most famous Liberal prime minister of all, Pierre Trudeau; his righthand man in this effort was future prime minister Jean Chrétien. Is the Conservative government giving this ‘Liberal’ anniversary the cold shoulder? Given the highly partisan nature of Ottawa these days, that’s a plausible explanation, but we’re not sure it’s the correct conclusion to draw. Indeed, Liberal protests over the non-celebration can just as easily be chalked up to

I

partisanship as well. Stephen Harper — who has been critical of the Charter in the past — did note that the Constitution’s repatriation is still a touchstone of controversy. Of course, Quebec never signed on to the document. To make a big deal about the anniversary would only serve to reopen old wounds, he hinted. And, in that, he has a point. We should, however, reflect on what that event 30 years ago means today. It underpins, in big ways and small ways, everything we do. It guides how we interact with each other, and with our government. It enshrines our fundamental rights as citizens of Canada. This is no insignificant document. The citizens of many other countries of the world

long for the kind of protection that our Charter guarantees; we send our soldiers to fight for the ideals the Charter contains. If anything, we celebrate the Charter of Rights and Freedoms every Canada Day — indeed, that document ‘celebrates’ and protects so many things that we value as Canadians. Ironically, those who see the Charter as a flawed document are free to state their concerns or criticisms. After all, their right to do so is enshrined in (you guessed it) the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Whether you feel it’s worth celebrating or no, there’s no question that it’s a remarkable document, and certainly worth mention, and reflection.

The Act came into force on June 30, 2008, and is supported by The Committee on the Status of Species at Risk in Ontario, which is a government-appointed committee that determines which species of plant or animal should be added to the SARO list. Members of the Species at Risk committee are required to have relevant scientific expertise or aboriginal traditional knowledge. While the committee reports to the Ministry of Natural Resources, species listed in its reports are automatically added to the SARO list, with no ministerial discretion, and can have significant implications to farmers and on-farm practices. The OFA would like the following changes to the Endangered Species Act, 2007: 1. COSSARO’s report should be a main point of consideration – but not the only consideration – in listing a species on the SARO list. Adding a species to the list should be at the Minister of Natural Resources’ discretion, and allow for the consideration of the socio-economic implications of the listing. 2. COSSARO’s listing decisions must reflect the overall global distribution and ranking of the species, including any factors contributing to species decline that are outside of Ontario’s jurisdiction to affect. 3. Membership on COSSARO should be expanded to include one person representing agricultural community knowledge, perhaps specifically from OFA. 4. Implementation of the ‘safe harbour’ concept into the Endangered Species Act, which would encourage private property owners to create habitat for endangered and threatened species, free from habitat restrictions. 5. The Ministry of Natural Resources should thoroughly investigate the implications of focusing on the protection of ecosystem or habitat types in lieu of protecting the habitats of individual species. OFA represents 37,000 farm business members and their families and is committed to working toward legislation that will preserve the environment while enabling prosperous and sustainable farms in Ontario. Keith Currie is an executive member of the OFA

Rotary making big splash Club has plenty of events on tap for aquatics project By Dominik Wisniewski BEAVER STAFF WRITER The Napanee Rotary Club’s fundraising efforts are in full swing when it comes to making waves for local aquatics. A charity golf tournament and a children’s items consignment sale have been organized for May 6. The 2012 Spring Swing charity golf tournament will start at 1 p.m. that day at the Loyalist Golf and Country Club in Bath, featuring a shotgun start. A consignment sale, organized by Rotarian Cynthia Surette, will once again be part of this year’s Serendipity Studios 3rd Annual Mommy Matters Show. In addition to the Rotary sale, which will take place between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. on May 6, the event will take place at the Napanee Lions hall and will feature an indoor yard sale and local businesses. Proceeds from both Rotary events will support the Napanee Rotary Club’s Aquatic Fund. Bernard Laliberté, the club’s secretary, said that the golf tournament is something the club has not held in years, and will for the first time benefit a charity. “We don’t have anything during that time of the year so this was perfect,” he said, pointing out that Geoff James at the country club in Bath approached Rotary about hosting the event that day. Laliberté also indicated that Rotary has $90,000 available for projects at this time.

The first $60,000 of that was contributed by Waste Management with the remaining $30,000 committed by the Rotary club. “We’ve committed ourselves to $60,000 total, with $30,000 for the first year and $6,000 for the next five years and we’re well in line for that.” Asked about council’s latest decision to remove the existing Rotary pool — which was recently described by town staff as dilapidated, an eyesore and a liability to the community — he said it’s a step in the right direction. “What we think is very correct is that the outdoor pool, if council agrees, is going to be rebuilt in such a way that you can put a roof over it, over time,” Laliberté said. “We’re very happy with the splash pad and the proposal to start this summer. I think for us it’s a great development, the way things are going now.” The cost to enter a four person team scramble for the 2012 Spring Swing charity golf tournament is $400 per team. This includes 18 holes of golf, cart, lunch, dinner and silent auction. Thanks to Rotarian Larry Pringle of Pringle Ford in Greater Napanee, a new Ford Focus is also up for grabs for a hole-in-one, with more details to follow. In an interview with Surette, she told the Beaver that the consignment sale has been part of The Mommy Matters Show organized every spring by Jen Fitzpatrick, the owner of Serendipity Studios.

“We piggyback on the space that she has reserved at the Lions Hall, and she gives us some space for the consignment sale,” Surette explained. “It came about because I am a mom. I have a six-year-old son and in the past I have used similar sales to buy clothing, equipment and gear for my own child.” Surette holds a similar standalone sale each fall. “Being a part of the Rotary Club of Napanee, I became aware of a need for this type of event for families living in Greater Napanee,” she said. “It’s the perfect way to make a few bucks ever spring and fall, selling gently used stuff they don’t need any more.” She said the sale is also a great event for families looking for items at a reasonable cost. “People don’t need to man a table with our sale. We have volunteers who are Rotary Club members and their spouses, who are there to manage the sale,” she added. “You come in the morning, tag your items and at the end of the sale you get 60 per cent back of whatever you sold, with 40 per cent going to the fundraiser.” Full details on how the sale works are available on the clubs Facebook page, under ‘Rotary Club of Napanee.’ For more information about both the golf tournament and sale contact the organizers by email at rotaryclubnapanee@gmail. For specific information about the 2012 Spring Swing contact Colin Wartman at 613-354-3722 or Al MacGregor at 613-3540255.

Birding for bucks in May Several years ago, I had the pleasure of accompanying one of Ontario’s birding greats, Michael Runtz who is no stranger to birding circles. He is not a stranger either to those who visit Algonquin Provincial Park for his award winning photographs turn up everywhere, whether in the Visitor Centre, books that he has written or in the calendar that the Friends of Algonquin produces each year. We were on a 24-hour birding extravaganza. While a 24-hour Birdathon is a term tossed about with reckless abandon by many birders, meaning anything from a full day of birding to maybe extending it a bit into the night, the term is taken seriously by Runtz. He will forge bravely into the night, luring out the shy and retiring inhabitants of marshes and woodland owls using imitations of their calls to elicit a response, emerging only when 24 hours have passed. Mike seldom uses an electronic device though, for he is an expert at using his own vocal cords to replicate the sounds of the night. And that is what we did, on a very memorable day in May, in 2008. Four years later, I still don’t think I have fully recovered. For me, it was a new experience. I am not a night person, and I live by a set pattern — up at 4:15 a.m., shave, breakfast, a nap at noon and winding down at 9 p.m. Every day, without exception. The Birdathon taught me that I could change, that I can survive without shaving, and my usual scrambled eggs in the morning and apparently, without

a nap. So, what is the point of all this? It is an annual effort in which I participate to raise funds for the Prince Edward Point Bird Observatory, a facility located within the Prince Edward Point National Wildlife Area, and which receives no government funding. The Baillie Birdathon is a means to do this. Participants seek pledges with most of the donations being flat amounts, while others prefer to sponsor participants on a per species basis. Seasoned birders in an active mood can round up over 140 species in a 24-hour period. After that memorable experience in 2008, I now have my own team of skilled birders. We call ourselves The Sprague’s Pipits and helping me achieve my goal on May 16th will be two of last year’s participants who survived the experience, Mike Burge and Kathy Felkar, and newcomer, Alice Carberry. The Sprague’s Pipit, by way of explanation, is a terrestrial prairie bird, on the Ontario bird checklist as a vagrant, but never seen in the Quinte area. And, no – to answer a common question, I did not play a role in the naming of the bird. We call ourselves the Sprague’s Pipits because – well, it was just too good a team name to pass up! The first 100 species in the day will be easy; it’s the next 40 plus species that will be more difficult. The effort can be gruelling, as little time is taken for non essentials such a food, rest or bathroom breaks. However, it is all for a good cause, and sponsors every year are always especially

Terry Sprague

Outdoor Rambles generous. The exercise also sharpens our identifications skills, as one must be quick as time is of the essence in this annual ritual. The funds initially go to Bird Studies Canada and a large share destined for the Observatory is returned to the facility later on in the season. Donors are issued receipts for income tax purposes for amounts of ten dollars and greater. Bird Studies Canada has also entered the electronic age and donors can submit their donation online where it can be channelled directly to my efforts, as can those who are sponsoring other participants. Readers interested in sponsoring me for this endeavour can do so by going into my website at www.naturestuff.net and looking under ‘Events’ from the Main Menu, and scrolling down through the topics until they reach “Birdthon 2012”. Sponsors

can also send a cheque made payable to Bird Studies Canada to: Terry Sprague, 23 Sprague Road, R.R. # 1, Demorestville, Ontario K0K 1W0. The Prince Edward Point Bird Observatory plays a major role in determining population demographics and migration routes such as longevity of migrant birds, and population make up. Bird banding answers questions that are unobtainable by causal field observation which can ultimately lead to habitat preservation. Banding at stations across Canada, are a vital part of the Canadian Migration Monitoring System. In 2008 we found 148 species during this 24-hour marathon, one shy of the winning team with 149 species. This year, however, it is not about winning or losing, because every participant, by raising funds, is very much a “winner” anyway. We could not raise the funds that we do without the collective efforts of every person who takes part in this annual exercise every May It’s about working as reasonably

hard as we can within the parameters of sanity, and come up with a respectable total. For my group, it will mean starting at 4:00 a.m. and working through until about 9:00 p.m., non-stop. By doing so, we will have a good chance at whip-poor-wills, wetland birds and owls, all of which tend to be more vocal at night. That should bring us close to 130 species. So, if you are out and about on May 16 when we set off on our quest, you may spot us at Kaiser Crossroad looking for shorebirds in the muddy depressions, on Wesley Acres Road listening for that illusive sora rail, on the trails in the Point Traverse Woods cleaning up on the warblers, thrushes and flycatchers, or on Army Reserve Road where we know whip-poorwills will be calling. For more information on today’s topic, please e-mail tsprague@kos.net or phone 613‑476‑5072. For more information on nature in the Quinte area, be sure to check out www.naturestuff.net .

A trip through the pages of The Napanee Beaver 70 Years Ago April 22, 1942 n A serious fire destroyed the Lennox Lumber Company mill in Napanee. It was estimated that the replacement cost for the building and the stock was around $100,000. At the time of printing, it was not clear how the fire started. It was discovered early Wednesday morning at 1:15 a.m. By the time firefighters were able to respond, they were unable to prevent the complete destruction of the mill and its contents. According to the report in the Beaver, the fire lit up the entire town, and could be seen for several miles. n Some 500 Napanee children were inoculated against diphtheria as part of a national immunization program. The children were given their first inoculation against the disease through ‘Toxold Week’, which was being promoted by the Health League Canada. Eight-hundred people in Canada died as a result of diphtheria the year before.

35 Years Ago April 20, 1977 n A plan to add signs to direct tourists to the Lennox and Addington County Museum and Archives was not warmly greeted by Napanee Mayor Lorne Smart. “We’re going sign-crazy,” said Smart at a property committee meeting after hearing the proposal from museum curator Helen Hutchison. “We have all kinds of signs in town now. They are nailed on telephone poles, on trees and on Hydro poles, and all of them are illegal… we have so many signs in town now we don’t know whether we’re coming or going.” Ultimately, the committee members withheld approval of the signs until they were given some indication where the signs would be location. n Ontario Hydro announced that it would be spending $20 million to purchase property in southern L&A and eastern Prince Edward county to allow for electricity generated here to be sent to Prince Edward. Some 80 property owners would be affected by the project. The project would also include a submarine hydro cable from Green Point in L&A to Prince Edward. It was hoped that the project would be completed by 1980. A 230-kilowatt transformer station would also be build just outside of Picton.

LANDFILL… Hearing to start later this year

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1

“Our overall goal is to ensure robust monitoring and effective contingency plans at the Richmond Landfill, which finally closed in 2011,” he said in a statement issued Monday. “Filing our appeal is the next major step towards achieving this public interest objective.” “It is rare for individuals or citizens’ groups to obtain leave to appeal landfill licences in Ontario,” said Richard Lindgren, a member of the Canadian Environmental Law Association who represents the CCCTE. “My client looks forward to takAPRIL 25 LINE DANCING At the Tamworth Legion from 7-9 p.m. APRIL 26 ZUMBA GOLD At the Tamworth Legion, from 9:30-10:30 a.m. APRIL 27 LIMESTONE CHORISTERS The Young Choristers Limestone will celebrate the power of choral music at

ing full advantage of this opportunity in order to pursue long-standing concerns about the landfill’s risks to air quality, surface water, and groundwater.” If successful, the CCCTE’s appeal will revoke the conditions currently placed on the site and replace them with more stringent conditions. The ERT’s ruling will be legally enforceable. The Richmond Landfill is located adjacent to the proposed Beechwood Road Environmental Centre, which would include a landfill that accepts 400,000 tonnes of waste per year. The CCCTE has been outspoken in its oppo-

sition to the BREC plan as well. The BREC is currently undergoing a provincial environmental assessment before the proposal is accepted or rejected by the Ontario Ministry of Environment. WM has maintained that the monitoring program in place at the Richmond Landfill is more than sufficient in protecting the environment and the health of local residents, and has welcomed the ERT hearing. “This process will hopefully put an additional spotlight on how groundwater works in the area and how it should be monitored,” said Randy Harris,

the manager of the BREC, following the ERT’s decision to allow the appeal to proceed earlier this month. According to the CCCTE, the tribunal will hold public hearings to receive evidence and submissions on the issues raised in the group’s appeal. Although the parties in the hearing will be the CCCTE, the Ministry of the Environment, and the site owner Waste Management of Canada Corporation, other interested persons, groups or municipalities may apply to participate in the hearing. The hearing is expected to take place later this year.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Concert starts at 7 p.m. Cost: Freewill offering. More than 100 students from all corners of the Limestone District School Board will perform at the annual spring concert. LUNCH Come and enjoy a hot meal

Awareness is essential as disease becomes more prevalent By Seth DuChene EDITOR

Parkinson’s Disease Facts:

As the number of Parkinson’s Disease sufferers increases across Canada, it should come as no surprise that those coping with the degenerative condition in this area are coming together for mutual support. And, with April being Parkinson’s Awareness Month, those local sufferers are working to increase the public’s knowledge about the disease, and to reach out to others touched by Parkinson’s to let them know there is help out there. “As our citizens get older, there will be more people around with Parkinson’s,” says Sandra Boston, who was diagnosed with Parkinson’s about five years ago. “Some people develop it early, in their 30s and 40s, but most are over 60.” The disease — which reduces the amount of dopamine in the brain — is best recognized for causing tremors and shaking in sufferers. However, the disease does cause other symptoms as well. “I think the big difficulty with that, at least for me and a lot of people I talk to, is the fatigue that goes with it,” says Boston. “I don’t think people realize we get so tired. You don’t even think clearly when you’re tired. There's a cognitive component to it. They used to say that there wasn't, but there certainly is.” “You see so many specialists and so many doctors,” says Don Ryan, another local Parkinson’s Disease

n More than 100,000 Canadians suffer from the disease n Direct costs (doctors, hospital care and drugs) for Parkinson’s is estimated to total $86.8 million nationwide n First described by Britain’s Dr. James Parkinson in 1817 as the ‘shaking palsy’ n currently there is no cure for the disease - Parkinson Society of Canada

sufferer. “You get sick of being sick. It affects every aspect of your life, and it’s overwhelming.” While medications can treat the symptoms of the disease, there is no cure. Further, the symptoms get progressively worse over time. Perhaps the most frustrating aspect, however, is the fact that it’s unknown what causes the disease. Although it generally strikes older people, people who have suffered severe blows to the head and people who have been exposed to chemicals, no one cause has been identified. “They say now that there’s the genetic part of it that makes us susceptible to it, and maybe there’s something that sort of ‘pushes’ us,” says Boston. That’s why Boston and Ryan, are participating in an ongoing genetic study, ‘23 and Me.’ Launched in 2009, the study is gathering a genetic profile of as many Parkinson’s sufferers as possible to assist research into the disease and, hopefully, speed the discovery of a cure. “I've really enjoyed being in the

gene study,” said Boston. “I have felt that it’s a very positive thing to do… They’re trying to find the connection, the thread that links all these people.” Ryan and Boston are also part of a Napanee Parkinson’s support group, which meets every month. “It started about a year ago, and it’s going really well,” said Ryan, who adds that 20-23 Parkinson’s sufferers or caregivers regularly attend. “Hopefully what we’ll provide for them is support, in any aspect that we can. Our main objective is to help the local people, to work with the local people.” Boston said that being diagnosed with Parkinson’s is very difficult, but facing the disease with the right mindset is essential. “The diagnosis, it’s very hard on you, to realize that you have a degenerative neurological disease. But it’s slow for most people. You just have to learn to live with it and work with it, but not let it ‘be’ your life. It’s just something you deal with,” she says. “You have to try to keep (the disease from taking over your life), to remember you’re not Parkinson’s, you’re the person you always were,” Boston ads. “But, it can be hard at times, when you can’t do the things you used to do.” The Parkinson’s Support Group meets every second Tuesday at Lennox and Addington Seniors Outreach Services at 1:30 p.m. For more information, contact Ryan at 613354-5238.

The Fruit Punch Club has come a long way since being formed one summer by a group of friends from H. H. Langford Public School and J. J. O’Neill Catholic School. Sitting on their babysitter’s deck one day, Elizabeth Peterson, Kate Brown and Leah and Maddy Oster were trying to figure out a way to make the world a better place. The idea of forming the club to help various charities was Elizabeth’s, and when it came time to narrow down a name it was Leah who suggested ‘Fruit Punch,’ symbolizing the variety of people and animals the club would benefit. Since then the club has attracted more members and even more support from parents and both school communities. The club now includes Brown, Peterson, the Oster sisters in addition to Gracey Vanberkel, Maddy Fretts and Emily Yolk. In a recent interview with club members, they told the Beaver that their focus right now is to raise money to help save the Abaco horses. A fundraising bake and jewelry sale will be held at H. H. Langford Public School on April 28 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. The sale is being organized by the parent council with proceeds going towards a memorable school closing event. Fruit Punch members will be there fundraising to support the Wild Horses of Abaco organization in the Bahamas. Asked about the club’s formation, Leah said that at first the group planned to focus on one charity. “We weren’t sure which cause, so we decided to make a club that would raise money for a whole bunch of causes, at different times,” she said. She said the ‘Fruit Punch’ name was then the perfect fit. “There are a whole bunch of fruits that you need to make a punch, and there are a whole bunch of charities that need help to change the world,” Leah added.

With only five horses left in Abaco, Bahamas, the Wild Horses of Abaco was their first charity — and one they plan to keep supporting each year. “There are only five of them left so we’re helping a woman bring them back with the medical care they need,” she said. “It feels really good to be able to give some money from our last sale.” The other charity to benefit from their efforts will be the Napanee Acquired Brain Injury Rehabilitation Home. According to Emily, their last sale raised $54 for the Abaco horses and an additional $39 for the local SPCA. “The fundraisers have all been at the school so far, but we will hold others,” Emily said. Wearing homemade t-shirts featuring the Fruit Punch Club logo, members noted that they wanted something unique to represent their work. Maddy pointed out that the symbol features a pear inside of a circle with the member’s name and slogan ‘Helping to Change the World’ below. “At first we had an apple but we thought it was too close to the school symbol,” she said. Members also recognized their parents support of the club. Whether it’s supporting members during the sale or offering to organize a day to make t-shirts, their families have always been there for them, members said. To support the Fruit Punch Club’s bake sale and H. H. Langford Public School’s, visit the school on April 28 to check out the yard sale tables, arts and crafts vendors, bake sale and barbecue. The event runs from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. with vendor tables available for rent for $15.

Long-lost wedding tape rediscovered By Adam Prudhomme BEAVER STAFF WRITER Kees and Sharon van Gent couldn’t believe their luck — that is until they remembered it was Friday the 13th. The magic powers of the freaky day was the only explanation the Napanee couple could come up with for how they could be reunited with their wedding tape 20 years after it had been stolen.

The way they came across it is even more strange. While out for a walk along Beechwood Road last Friday, their friend Janet Hayley came across a VCR with a VHS tape inside laying in a ditch. Her curiosity got the best of her so she brought it home. “She wanted to see what was on the tape,” said Kees. “She put it on and her husband says, ‘That’s Kees and Sharon!’ It was our wedding tape.”

Community clean-ups this Saturday Napanee, Deseronto and Yarker enviro events planned By Seth DuChene EDITOR The Greater Napanee Good Friends of the Earth have never been afraid to roll up their sleeves to clean up the community over the past decade-and-a-half, and this year is no exception. And, they’re not the only ones getting down to work. The Greater Napanee Community Clean-up will be one of a few similar events going on in the area this Saturday to mark Earth Day. Similar cleanups will also be taking place

in Deseronto and Yarker. Barry Robinson, who has spearheaded the Napanee event and helped coordinate other area events, noted on Tuesday that, while the clean-up participants are diligent and devoted, he’s amazed that in spite of the clean-up and its many areas message, around the community are still being peppered with litter. Robinson said that some early clean-up work has already taken place along some roadsides, and that several bags have already been collected.

Seth DuChene - Staff

Some of the sponsors and supporters of the annual Good Friends of the Earth clean-up gathered at Conservation Park on Monday to plant a tree. From left are Dave Morse and Mike Smith (Napanee Civitan Club), Jamie Cybulski (MyFM), Randy Harris (Waste Management), Scott Reid (LFL&A MP), Pam Oliver (MyFM), Tina Miller (Shoppers Drug Mart), Linda Cooper (Waste Management), Barb Weese (Women’s Institute), Tom Zywot (Canadian Tire), Bob Annett (Tim Hortons), Brad Way (Napanee District Chamber of Commerce), Donna Jackson (Women’s Institute), Dan Doyle (McDonald’s), and Catherine Freymond (Women’s Institute). The tree was donated by Waste Management. In advance of Earth Day, Robinson made a presentation to Greater Napanee council to urge the municipality to become more active in promoting

environmental responsibility. He pressed council to lobby the province for better pollution controls, and to urge citizens to avoid using ‘drive thrus’ at local restaurants to prevent unnecessary vehicle idling. Robinson cited the risk to the planet and its inhabitants by climate change, and maintained that, to counter this trend, change has to happen at the grassroots level. “We have to assume personal responsibility as change will only really begin when we begin individually,” he said. Community responsibility is also the mantra of the Yarker, Colebrook and District Community Association, which is organizing its third annual clean-up day set for this Saturday. “We do it every Earth Day as a community proj-

ect, and hopefully we’ll get a good amount of support,” said Eric DePoe of the community association. He said that the Yarker group will tackle “all the public areas” in and around Colebrook and Yarker through the course of the day. “Hopefully, people will take more pride in their community as a result,” he said. He said the first two events were well-received, with 35-40 people participating. The Napanee Community Clean-Up goes from 9 a.m. to noon this Saturday; its headquarters are the Napanee Mall. At the mall, the participants can pick up bags, gloves and pick-up sticks before heading out to their clean-up area. There will be free Earth Day Tshirts, donuts, drinks and

coupons available while supplies last. The Deseronto clean-up is also set for Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon., with participants starting out from Rathbun Park, adjacent to Deseronto Town Hall. Bags, gloves and refreshments will be provided. Free tree seedlings will also be given away. The Yarker clean-up gets started from the village fire hall on Saturday at 10 a.m. While the Township of Stone Mills is providing garbage bags for trash disposal, participants should bring work gloves or any other equipment. “Just wear old clothes and be ready to pick up the roadsides and parks,” said DePoe. A barbecue will follow at the fire hall. Those with questions should contact DePoe at 613-377-1856.

L&A Stewardship Council has rain barrels up for grabs BEAVER STAFF The Lennox and Addington Stewardship Council is big on rain barrels, so they have purchased a truckload. This Saturday, residents of L&A can purchase a barrel for just $25. By using a rain barrel, residents can save money, save water and care for their gardens. According to the council, water from a rain barrel can be a plant-saver during a dry summer. The water it collects is much softer than most well water or municipal sources. It is untreated, oxygen-rich and warmer in temperature (and cold water is not good for your plants). All of these factors make it the perfect water for your garden — and you will not strain your well or the municipal water supply. Using a rain barrel will help protect the watershed and the water supply. If you pay for municipal water, you can

cut down your water use (and costs) with a rain barrel. The council has purchased 300 plastic, food-grade barrels with screw-on lids. Residents may purchase a 180-litre size in terra cotta colour. Add your own tap (about $5), and for a minimal cost, you have a working rain barrel that nourishes your garden and conserves water. Simple, effective tips for mosquito and larvae control will be available. If you have a burn barrel, you can do a straight exchange. Burning waste in barrels produces dioxins, arsenic, PCBs and other chemicals harmful to humans and farm animals. The council will provide a free rain barrel in exchange for the old burn barrel so you can reduce air pollution and increase water conservation at the same time. The sale takes place at the Greater Napanee Public Works at County Road 2 and Palace Road, between 8:30 a.m. and noon.

Bath committee makes splash with ‘barrel’ of fundraiser By Dominik Wisniewski BEAVER STAFF WRITER A group of volunteers in Bath is holding a rain barrel fundraiser to commemorate Earth Day, while also helping a great community cause. Organized by the Bath Park Development Committee, the fundraiser is one from now until April 22, Earth Day. Rain barrels can be

purchased online and picked up that day in Centennial Park in Bath. Funds raised through the sale will go to benefit the first phase of the community’s development of a new multi-use park, which includes a bocce ball court, skate pad and a horseshoe pit. According to BPDC member Sal Gelsomino, the skate pad will feature removable ramps, making way for an ice pad in the

winter months. “The project has been in the works from early 2000,� he said. “It’s a combination that started with the skate pad.� For fellow committee member Joy Silver, who is also a member of Loyalist Township’s Recreation Committee, this project has been a long time coming.

BAY OF QUINTE RAP REHABILITATING THE BAY

We are fortunate to live on one of the most unique and picturesque bodies of water in Lake Ontario. The Bay of Quinte is the defining landscape feature in this area, from Trenton to Prinyer’s Cove to Bath, think about how many events, organizations, attractions, companies, etc have the words Bay of Quinte in their titles. There are tourism initiatives and cultural plans being developed for the area and the Bay of Quinte should be featured prominently in these initiatives. The importance of the Bay to this region culturally, socially and economically can’t be over-stated. The Bay of Quinte was designated an “Area of Concern� (AOC) back in 1985. An AOC is a ecosystem where environmental quality has been significantly degraded. Since that time, federal and provincial governments, municipalities, businesses and industries, NGO’s, Conservation Authorities and the public have all been working together to rehabilitate the Bay and the Bay of Quinte is a success story. As the Bay of Quinte Remedial Action Plan (RAP) has been implemented numerous successes addressing the environmental challenges, that once faced the Bay, have been achieved. The challenges focused on excess nutrients, persistent toxic contamination,

bacterial contamination and the loss or destruction of fish and wildlife habitat. Sewage treatment plant operations have been upgraded reducing phosphorus inputs to the Bay by nearly 50% in the last two decades. As well, there have been improvements in storm water treatment facilities and farming practices, all helping to improve water quality. Everyone can contribute to keeping the Bay healthy by remembering that even the smallest action can affect water quality. You can help by using nonphosphorus lawn fertilizer, building a rain garden, using a rain barrel, planting trees and native shrubs, picking up after your pets or restoring a shoreline. Also, remember everything that goes down the storm sewer ends up in the nearest water body, then in the Bay. Your actions, no matter how small, impact the water quality in the Bay. The RAP is in the final stages of collecting the scientific evidence that is needed to change the status of the environmental challenges that were facing the Bay. Ultimately through this process, we will be able to remove the Area of Concern status the Bay has carried since 1985. As the RAP moves closer to the goal of changing the status of the Bay, we want to encourage people to start thinking about the importance



of the Bay in the own lives and the impact it has on the community. Realizing the Bay is a unique and healthy ecosystem. We have implemented the Bay in a New Way branding campaign to focus on the positive results the RAP has achieved. It consists of ten print ads, 6 are in this Earth Day edition and there will be one more ad each month until August. Collect all ten and you could win a 4 person fishing charter donated by Bay of Quinte Chart e r s www.bayofquintecharters.com Collect all ten Bay in a New Way ads and email or snail mail them in to be entered in the draw.

L&A County General Hospital Benefit Golf Tournament co-chairs Peter Boyer (left) and LeRoy Wannamaker in a brand-new Buick Verano. Starting Monday, Boyer GM is donating $10 to the golf tournament for every test drive of the Verano, Chevrolet Orlando or Chevrolet Sonic.

Test-drive fundraiser to benefit golf tourney By Seth DuChene EDITOR The 16th annual Benefit Golf Tournament for the Lennox and Addington County General Hospital Foundation might be on June 6, but you can start â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;drivingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; much sooner. Starting this coming Monday and lasting through next Saturday, Boyers GM in Napanee will be donating $10 to the golf tournament for every test drive of a Buick Verano; theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll also donate $10 for anyone bringing their car in for service and test driving a Verano, a Chevrolet Orlando or a Chevrolet Sonic. Peter Boyer, the owner of Boyer GM and longtime chairperson for the charity tournament, said he hopes the promotion turns out to be a nice additional fundraiser for the tourney, which has raised nearly $500,000 for the hospital over the last decade-and-a-half. That money has gone to help pay for equipment at the hospital, including new items for the recent expansion. Much of the funds raised in recent years have been used to help pay for new

state-of-the-art digital diagnostic imaging equipment. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tournament has a special beneficiary: the L&A County General Hospitalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new chemotherapy unit, which is expected to come on line in early summer. All money raised through the tournament will go to support that new service. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everybody has been touched by cancer in some form or another,â&#x20AC;? said Boyer. LeRoy Wannamaker, co-chair of the tournament with Boyer, said that the tournament has been extremely well-received over the years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For the size of the community, we have one of the most successful charity golf tournaments around,â&#x20AC;? he said. Besides the generosity of the community, part of the reason for that success is the fact that the Napanee Golf and Country Club donates the use of the club for the event. Wannamaker said that while a few of the 144 available spot arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t yet spoken for, those spots are filling up fast. Cost to enter is $110, which includes 18 holes of golf, a golf cart and dinner. For more information or to book a spot in the tournament, call the LACGH Foundation office at 613-354-6511.

I was working at a Call Centre providing French services. However, when the Call Centre lost their contract, I was laid off. I have always wanted to work with animals but my English skills werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the greatest and therefore my prospects were limited. I went to Career Edge to find out what my options were. I met with Donna who said I was a candidate for their Second Career program. With their financial support and guidance, I took an English course to improve my language skills. I then took the Veterinarian Assistant Program and received the Top Student Award. I immediately got a job in a career that I love. Thanks Career Edge.

Deseronto Storm on verge of joining Empire B Former GMHL team to play against Raiders By Adam Prudhomme BEAVER SPORTS or the past six years local junior hockey fans have debated amongst themselves which town had the superior team: the Napanee Raiders or Deseronto Storm. That question came one step to being answered last week after the Empire B League team owners voted to accept the Storm into their league, pending the Ontario Hockey Association's (OHA) approval. “I think it’s going to be great for fans,” said Storm assistant GM Kevan Dever. “Our fans were willing to travel but our closest (opposing team) was Toronto, two and a half hours away. Now we’re 10 to 15 minutes. 50 people can jump in a couple of cars and they’re there.” Relatively speaking, the Toronto road trip was a short one. Other stops in the Greater Metro Hockey League (GMHL) circuit included Sturgeon Falls, Temiscaming and Lefroy, all at least five hours away or more. “The traveling costs was the biggest reason for the decision (to switch leagues),” said Storm owner Adam Maracle. Founded in 2006, then

Biking brothers are Vegas bound Mutch boys qualify for national motocross By Adam Prudhomme BEAVER SPORTS rothers Nathan and Landon Mutch are headed for Vegas next month with the hopes of winning big-not at the blackjack table but on the dirt track. The motocross riders are hoping to fulfill their need for speed at the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) Las Vegas Supercross Nationals, May 4-6. The pair earned the invite after strong showings at races in Baltimore, MD and Wilkes-Barre, PA late last year. Their finishes placed them in the top

B

five of the Eastern region standings, earning them one of 20 spots in the Vegas race. Landon, age 22, is new to the sport having just taken it up six months ago. Older brother Nathan, 24, is entering his fourth season. Though they've travelled the east coast, neither have ever driven nearly as far west as Las Vegas for a race. “That’s the hardest part, trying to get everything there,” said Landon. “The gear and the bike and anything else that you need. That’s the real challenge.” They’re hoping to secure a sponsor van to save them having to lug a

trailer across the U.S. To help prepare for race day they've set up a dirt track in their backyard complete with jumps and bumps. “Usually the floor space is about the size of the Napanee hockey arena,” Nathan says of what to expect in Vegas. “The track is contained in that area. It’s tight racing, the lanes aren't real wide so its pretty close contact with other riders. There’s a lot of obstacles, it's not flat. There’s rhythm sections and the finish line catapult jump is pretty big. There’s a loop section. They pack a lot into a small area.”

known as the Thunder, Deseronto was an original member of the ‘outlaw’ GMHL. Since the GMHL operates outside the boundaries of Hockey Canada where as the Empire B League doesn’t, the Raiders and Storm were never allowed to play each other, not even in exhibition. At one point Hockey Canada’s boycott went as far as banning any GMHL player from their league for a full season. The Ontario government stepped in a few years ago and put restrictions on the ban, allowing players to skate in both leagues. This has allowed local players like Brad Edwards and John Sweet to have spent time with both the Storm and Raiders. Though the GMHL has branded itself a Junior A league, many fans debate its merits as they don't have the levels like the OHA which has Junior A, B, C and D. Still the GMHL has had a few of its graduates go onto play in the Ontario Hockey League or professional European leagues. The GMHL is far more open to foreign players and has been able to draw young European talent over the years. Despite this, the Storm have

always been one of the more ‘Canadian’ teams in the league. “We’re expecting to start the season with a strong returning core of players,” said Dever. “We feel like we can jump right in and compete.” On the surface it’s easy to see where problems could arise between two small town hockey teams operating just 15 minutes apart, but they’ve managed to co-exist for six years now. “We’ve never had a problem with them before,” said Raiders team president Morris Hart. “They said they will not come into our area for sponsorship and players and we won’t go into theirs.” He too is expecting a healthy rivalry to develop. “I think Deseronto will bring in more fans than Port Hope or Campbellford,” adds Hart. If the Storm is accepted, that would bring the Empire B League’s number of teams back to six, where is was two years ago before the Frontenac Flyers folded. The league is yet to announce if they would revert back to a four team playoff system instead of the five they have now. The OHA is expected to reach their decision shortly, by June at the latest.

Napanee Raiders reflect on trying 2011-12 campaign Colin Doelman picks up President’s Award, Judy Jarmin Memorial and league scoring title By Adam Prudhomme BEAVER SPORTS f Napanee Raiders team president Morris Hart had it his way the team would’ve spent Monday night on the Strathcona Paper Centre's ice, not its banquet hall. Instead, due to their quarter-final exit in February, the team spent Monday celebrating positives in a mostly disappointing season during their year end awards banquet. Hart opened the night on a solemn note, paying tribute to the late George Magold and Bob McGreer. Magold, who served as equipment manager for over 20 years, will have an

I

award named in his honour next year. It'll be given to the most important and respected player, as voted by the players. McGreer was an founding executive member of the Raiders and was with the team all 24 years of their existence. For the second year in a row, the top winner of the night was Colin Doelman as he took home the President's Award. More than just an MVP award, the highest honour the Raiders have goes to the player that shows leadership, determination and sportsmanship. Doelman also collected his Empire B League scoring title award after amassing 60 points this past season. His scor-

ing touch helped him win the Judy Jarmin Memorial Award as the team’s forward with the best plus/minus. On defense the award went to Nolan Powers. Goalie Kyle Copeland received the Harold Webster Memorial Trophy for his involvement in the Napanee community. The Ron Lakins Memorial Trophy, given to the top rookie, was shared between Powers and Taylor Brown. Bud Norris took home the Harold Sweet Memorial Trophy for his sportsmanship. Captain Paul Fortin earned his second straight McGreer Family Award as the top blue liner.

AWARDS… Bidding farewell to overagers

Troy Wylie, who played a vital role to the team with little fan fare by the press, was given the Earl Morrison Memorial Award. When all the trophies were handed out the team bid farewell to overagers Doelman, Fortin, Jake Doseger and Jeremy Burley. In Fortin they lose their captain of the past two seasons. As good as he was on the ice, his leadership in the dressing room will be just as missed. Doelman, who started his Raider career as a

defenceman, proved to be an offensive force when moved up front. Doseger was always a scoring threat, particularly in the playoffs. Burley, one of the longest tenured Raiders, was great at agitating opponents as well as putting the puck in the net. “Very skilled hockey players, all four,” said Hart. “Not only do we lose four overagers but we lost four quality individuals. These young men just turned 21 and will all do well in life.” Looking ahead to next year Hart says the future is

bright for the franchise. “We’re going to be very young,” said Hart. “We still have our core players that will provide leadership so we're going to be fine.” The Raiders’ search for their next crop of young guns will get underway April 29 when they hold their Taking The Next Step open house. General Manager Adam Bramburger says that event is almost full but there are still some spots available for defencemen and forwards. “I like the direction we’re going,” said Bramburger. “We’ve had meetings with the coaching staff and the players and a lot of them have talked about being really disciplined with practices and coming together as a team and really getting back to what it means to be a Raider.” Though Napanee finished just 16-18-6 this year, they don't need to look far for inspiration. This year's league champions, the Campbellford Rebels, were only 19-19-2 a year ago. The Rebels came within one win of a Schmalz Cup appearance, but blew a 3-0 series lead to the Alliston Hornets, losing Game 7 on Tuesday in Alliston. The Rebels have never made it to an all-Ontario final.

Each set up is different for every venue so no rider will have the advantage of having rode the track before hand. The riders will get a chance to walk about the track before their heats, but that's it. “There isn’t room to just get by and go,” said Landon. “You kind of have to block and force your way through.” The qualifying races

before the final are key. If they can finish with the best time in their heat then they’ll have a better starting position for the finals. The final race is typically eight to 10 laps which take about 40 seconds. It may seem short to spectators but it can feel much longer to the racers. “Holding on gets tough,” said Landon. “Your arms get pumped right up.” Racing in such close quarters with 19 other bikers means the inevitable scrapes, bruises or worse is going to happen. “I think there’s always going to be a little bit of fear,” said Nathan. “If you’re not scared, you’re not going fast enough. If you didn’t get a little bit nervous or excited when you're lining up to race, there probably wouldn’t be the appeal. That’s all part of the excitement.” Both brothers say they’re looking to go as far as they can in the sport but say it’s also just a hobby for now. Nathan has been able to secure one sponsor, a

Toronto area bike dealership called A.T.C. Corral, and hopes to garner more. In the meantime the support of both their parents is enough. “We’re fortunate to have a little space to put a track in,” Nathan says of having a backyard training facility. “Dad doesn’t mind that we rip it up with a skid steer.” The Vegas race will signal the start of a busy racing summer as they plan to compete in the Maguire Motocross Racing Series. In talking with their father Kevin Mutch, it's easy to see racing runs in the family. Both their father and uncle were drag racers in the 1980's. “The boys grew up hearing about our travels,” said the eldest Mutch. “We used to go down into the U.S. and into Quebec and all over Ontario drag racing. When they said they wanted to go to Vegas I said it’s a long ways and it's a lot of money, but it’s one of those once in a lifetime things.”

CONWAY - In memory of Kathleen who passed away April 18, 2009. There is a sad but sweet remembrance Of a lady our family knew. A precious gift God granted us, The mother he gave in you. The years are slowly fading, But the memories are still so clear, Beautiful treasures of love and laughter You gave us Mother dear. No one knows how much we miss you, No one knows the bitter pain We have suffered since we lost you, Life has never been the same, In our hearts your memory lingers, Sweet memories fond and true. There is not a day dear Mother That we do not think of you, What would we give to clasp her hands, Her dear sweet face to see, To hear her voice, to see her smile, Her blue eyes deep as the sea, A picture, we press our lips to As we say good night to you, But your presence is still as real dear Mother, As our everlasting love for you. Always loved and remembered, Lynn, Judy, Gerry, Brad and families.

FRALICK - In loving memory of beloved granddaughter, niece and cousin, Steacy Lynn, who went to Heaven April 20, 2009. TREASURED MEMORIES We know a smile we’d love to see, A hand we’d love to touch, We know a voice we’d love to hear, A face we love so much, As time goes by without you And days turn into years, They hold a thousand memories And a thousand silent tears, 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 all our whole life through, For the day we fail to think of you Is the day we’ll be with you. In our hearts and thoughts every day, we love and miss you. Nanny Shurtliffe, aunts, uncles and cousins. FRALICK - Steacy Lynn March 10, 1982 - April 20, 2009 DIRT ROADS AND DAFFODILS Dirt roads, daffodils Moon and stars, Children and laughter, That’s where you are, Maybe a good book Curled up in your chair, I look all around me And darling, you’re there! For you see, So many beautiful memories, I hear you whisper In the breeze, Maybe I can’t hold you, Feel your loving touch, But you are always with me, For my heart tells me such! I’ll never not miss you, Wish you were here, My daughter, my friend, I hold you so near, Tears that I cry Are so endless that’s true, But they are not for me, My love, they’re for you! Loving and missing.... Mom, Dan, Ian, Sarah, Jorja, Kyle and Nikiki. HUDSON - In memory of my parents, Arthur, who passed away April 1972 and Helen, who passed away August 1986. Your presence we miss, Your memory we treasure, Loving you always, Forgetting you never. Always remembered by Glenn and Ida.

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. HUFFMAN - In loving memory of Frank, who passed away April 18, 2008. Calm and peaceful he is sleeping, Sweetest rest that follows pain, We who loved him sadly miss him, But trust in God to meet again. Lovingly remembered by wife Doris, children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. KIRK - In loving memory of my dear husband Roly, who passed away April 20, 2006. There’s an arm never known to get weary, There’s an eye that never doth sleep, There’s a sun for the days that are dreary And a guide when the pathway gets steep, There’s a friend who sticks closer than a brother, There’s a bearer to carry your load, There’s a love beyond that of a mother, It’s our unfailing, unchanging God, So when He calls a loved one “Come Home”, He’ll not leave us here alone, But gently and lovingly carries us To that beautiful Heavenly Home. Forever missed and loved by your wife Bernice. PAUL - In memory of mom, Laura, who passed away April 19, 2011. Every day in some small way, Memories of you come my way, Though absent, you are ever near, Still missed, still loved and ever dear. Love, Amy. ROGERS - In loving memory of my mother, Myrtle Rogers, who passed away April 23, 2008. Sadly missed and always in my heart. Love, your son William McLellan.

ROGERS - In loving memory of my dear sister, Myrtle Lorena, who passed away April 23, 2008. Gone are the days we used to share, But in our hearts you are always there, Never more than a thought away, Quietly remembered every day. Also my mother, Minnie Wood, who passed away May 7, 1983. Missed by sister Beverley and husband Gerald Finn.

(nee Bartlett) Peacefully at the Lennox and Addington County Hospital with family at her side on Tuesday, April 10, 2012, in her 83rd year. Dear mother of Ron (Connie), Doug (Bonnie) and Debbie (Phil). Sadly missed by her many nieces and nephews, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Dear sister of Mabel Magee, Annie Benn (late Don) and the late Marjorie Germain and the late Herbert Bartlett. Dear sister-in-law of J. Betty Cameron and Phyllis V. Smith. Predeceased by her husband of 57 years, Carl G. Haight and her parents Arthur and Agatha Bartlett. At Jean’s request there will be no visitation or Funeral Service. Cremation by Simpler Times. The family would like to express their sincere gratitude to Dr. Jeffrey Sloan and to all the nursing staff for the wonderful and compassionate care given to Jean. Memorial donations to the Lennox and Addington Hospital Foundation would be appreciated by the family.

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

Deseronto Storm honours their stars Team bids farewell to four key overage veterans By Adam Prudhomme BEAVER SPORTS ll things considered the Deseronto Storm had a lot to celebrate at their year end banquet, held last Friday at the Deseronto Community Centre. At this time last year the hockey franchise was up for sale and had current owner Adam Maracle not stepped in, they'd probably have folded. Instead they put together a respectable 22-17-3 regular season record and pushed eventual Russell Cup champions Sturgeon Falls to a decisive Game 5 in the quarterfinals. “I’m still mad,” said Maracle when asked how he felt the season went. “We should have beat out Sturgeon Falls, it was a tough one. But overall we all gelled as a family in the end.” “We were probably the only ones that gave Sturgeon Falls a run,” added

The Cornerstone Builders Peewee AAA Quinte Red Devils bested Toronto 5-1 in Sunday’s Ontario Hockey Federation’s gold medal game in Waterloo. The win was the finishing touch on a 30-8-8 season for Quinte. The Red Devils opened the tournament with two straight loses, the first time they had lost back-to-back contests this season. They rallied with six straight victories, including a 3-2 overtime thriller against London in the semifinals, on their way to the gold medal. Pictured is the three local players who skated with the team. From left is Napanee forward Aidan McFarland, Tamworth forward Ryan Smith and Napanee defenceman Riley Manion.

Fellow defender Brett Bateman was named Rookie of the Year. He played in 39 regular season games picking up one goal and six assists. In net Dan Corrigan was the team's top goalie. He was 7-7 with a 4.98 GAA and was particularly sharp down the stretch and playoffs. Tyler Dever was named the player with

the most heart. The banquet had it’s bittersweet moments when the team had to bid farewell to overage players Munden, Dever, Sam Hall and Sean Anderson. “The guys that are leaving, you’ve never going to fill their shoes,” said Maracle. “We’ll do our best to replace them.” The team is waiting for the Ontario Hockey Association to approve their move to the Empire B League before serious recruiting for next year begins.

“We have a few fundraisers planned but this is the big one,” she said, adding that all rain barrel sales will be made via the website. “This can be an ongoing fundraiser, since this has never been done before for all of Loyalist Township.” Pointing out that this is an environmentally friendly way to raise funds, Silver said it also goes along with the committee’s theme while helping the community. In addition to being fully accessible, the park will be a multi-purpose facility. In the spring, summer and fall the pad could be used for the skate park, rollerblading, skateboarding, biking, and as a site for community events. During the winter months it would provide a natural ice surface for skating, hockey and ringette. The proposed site is located adjacent to the community’s existing tennis courts. Each rain barrel comes fully equipped with a leaf and mosquito filter basket, an overflow adaptor that permits multiple barrels to be connected in series, 1.2m of overflow hose and a spigot that attaches directly to a garden hose. The price is $55 per rain barrel. Orders can be made online at www.rainbarrel.ca/BPDC/. Distribution will be from 12:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. at Centennial Park on Main Street in Bath. No household limits and no residency requirements are imposed; however, only barrels ordered in advance are guaranteed to be available. A receipt from the online purchase is required for pick-up in Bath. Barrels can also be reserved online with the cash-on-pickup option. For information or for assistance with online ordering call Leslie at 613-4843358.
