Habitat For Humanity caps first Napanee build Family gets keys to new King Street home

BY SETH DUCHENE Editor

There’s no place like home for the holidays — just ask Krista Abbink and Chris McTaggart. On Monday, the couple and their four-year-old son, Gabriel, were handed the keys to their brand-new house, the first Habitat for Humanity ‘build’ in Napanee. The home was built over the past few months with the assistance of a legion of volunteers and sponsors, on a King Street lot donated by the Town of Greater Napanee. “It has exceeded all my expectations,” Abbink said of her new home following the ribbon cutting. “Everybody has done more than we thought of when we thought of a home for us. So, I can’t

thank everybody enough for what they’ve created for us to make our home here.” Habitat for Humanity had hoped to have the family moved in by Christmas; that goal has been met with a few weeks to spare. The family is waiting for its gas line to be hooked up before moving in, said Abbink. “The next step is that we’ll move in and we’ll be setting down our roots here,” she said. Nearly 100 people — many of whom contributed to the project either financially or with in-kind donation — were on hand for Monday’s ribbon cutting. Among them were Greater Napanee Mayor Gord Schermerhorn, as well as representatives from the two lead sponsors for the project, TransCanada and Matrix NAC. “This house was built by volunteers,” said Kyle Bot-

ting, one of the site supervisors. “That’s the big thing. When you see this crowd on a Monday afternoon, this is the nice part of living in a town like Napanee.” He also said that, without the support of TransCanada and Matrix NAC, “I’m sure this wouldn’t have gone quite as flawless.” “It’s gone very quickly,” said Abbink of the construction phase. “The process for the application went really quickly as well. But, they went through their process as they needed for Habitat, to make sure they’re picking a family that’s right for the program. We were just waiting for today.” Seth DuChene-Staff Later, she said, “I would drive down here and check Chris McTaggart, Krista Abbink and four-year-old Gabriel in front of their new out the progress of the home home on King Street in Napanee.

Council lifts heritage designation on home Family petitioned town for change due to ongoing insurance issues

BY ADAM PRUDHOMME Staff Reporter

Upon hearing both sides of the argument, Greater Napanee council opted to put forth a motion to repeal a heritage designation on a Bridge Street West home. Kenn and Kim Morrison, the owners of the home, made their appeal during last Tuesday’s meeting to have their property undesignated, citing exorbitant insurance costs that come with the label. Meanwhile members of the volunteer Greater Napanee Heritage Committee were pushing to keep the home designated as a heritage house, which has ties to Gibbard’s, in an effort to preserve the house for future generations. “The designation is causing significant difficulty to reasonably insure our home,” said Kenn Morrison, who was making his third appearance before council on the matter. “We have tried to work with the Municipal Heritage Committee to find a fair resolution, compromise or alterna-

Mills did point out, however, that listing doesn’t protect certain features that gives a home a heritage value, such as original Victorian designs or chimneys associated with that era. After hearing both sides councillor Mike Schenk put forward a motion to repeal the designation by-law, which requires council to issue a public notice 30 days in advance of their final decision. After a public notice is placed in the paper, the public would have the opportunity to voice any concerns. Any issues that are raised would be submitted to the Ontario Heritage Trust, who would then issue a non-biding recommendation back to council. Ultimately however it would be Greater Napanee council that would have the final say as to whether or not the by-law would be repealed or not.

Kramp wins PC nod Beaver Staff

Former local MP Daryl Kramp is one step closer to making a political comeback. On Saturday, Kramp won the Progressive Conservative Party nomination for Hastings-Lennox and Addington leading up to the next provincial election. Kramp beat out two competitors — Bancroft councillor Tracy McGibbon and former HastingsQuinte Paramedic Services chief John O’Donnell — to win the PC nod. Ontario PC Leader Patrick Brown, who served with Kramp as Conservative MPs under the leadership of Stephen Harper, wasted no time in congratulating Kramp after his win. “I had the great honour of working alongside Daryl in Ottawa, and saw first-hand his hard-work and dedication to his constituents. Daryl will be a very strong communicator for the Ontario PC Party’s message of change for a better Ontario with the voters in Hastings-Lennox and Addington. I am very excited to have his experience on our team.”

A revenue-side solution This week, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his Liberal government found itself in hot water — a relative rarity since they were elected last fall — after it became public that both domestic and foreign interests were appearing to get time with federal cabinet ministers in exchange for donating to the Liberal Party. Both cases of these ‘cash-for-access’ events involved those interests paying to participate in a Liberal fundraising event and getting an opportunity to potentially bend the ear of elected decisionmakers. Even if these events are permitted under law right now — and the prime minister insists that they are — it wouldn’t be surprising to find that most Canadians find the practice distasteful. If they don’t, they probably should. However, the fact of the matter is that political parties require funds to operate. They’ve got to raise those funds somehow. One of the ways of doing that is to hold fundraising dinners like the ones for which the Liberals are currently being chastised. Further, this isn’t a practice that was invented by the Liberals yesterday. These kinds of things have been happening for a while. The first and most obvious solution, of course, is to ban such activity; governments just can’t do it anymore. That doesn’t change the fact that political parties still have to raise money. So what’s the other part of the solution? Well, it’s not a novel one — in fact, it was a practice instituted by the former Chrétien regime: a per-vote subsidy. Parties would be allocated funds from public coffers based on how many votes they received in the general election. The Conservative government of Stephen Harper, of course, got rid of the measure in 2008, suggesting that parties should have to find their own funds with which to operate, and not live off the public purse. That sounds great too, doesn’t it? Except, since parties still have to raise money to operate, they turn to other methods to find the funds — methods like these cash-for-access affairs. Wouldn’t it be better, then, to provide political parties with a revenue stream that’s not tied to any special interest other than just general popular support? It would act as a disincentive for parties to engage in potentially questionable fundraising schemes in order to restock the war chest. Further, a per-vote subsidy would be a disincentive to strategic voting; if electors know their vote is at least going to contribute to their preferred party’s bottom line, they might be less inclined to shift their ballot to their second choice. Politicians are obligated to act honourably and honestly, and they need to be held to account when they don’t. However, if we can take away their need to turn to special interests and potentially expose themselves to undue interests as a result, that’s all the better.

Hot off the press As another year draws to a close, I find myself scrambling to finish up books that have been sitting in my TBR (to be read) e-galley pile for months. The following three books, which I recently read, have nothing in common other than they are brand new and available for you to borrow from the County of Lennox and Addington Libraries. Faithful by Alice Hoffman was not a novel I expected to love, but I did my librarian duty and read it because I knew that with Hoffman’s name attached it would likely be a high profile release. Truth is that I didn’t love the first 50 pages or so — until I truly got to know the protagonist Shelby Richmond. We meet Shelby, then a teenager growing up on Long Island, in the middle of a tragedy. While driving on an icy winter night, she is involved in a car accident that puts the passenger, her best friend, in a coma. Her tremendous guilt causes her to suffer a mental breakdown that takes her wellcharted life completely offcourse. The rest of the book follows her slow, day by day

journey out of depression. This is definitely a character-driven novel — it is entirely about Shelby, her

Catherine Coles Coles’ Notes emotional journey, her quirks (including her dedication to Chinese food and her pack of stolen rescue dogs) and the people who help her begin to reclaim her life. The Next by Stephanie Gangi follows a woman named Joanna in life and in death. When her younger boyfriend Ned leaves her jilted in her time of need — as she dies of breast cancer — she finds she cannot let go of her anger when it comes time to move on onto “the next.” In limbo, floating above NYC, she looks fondly over her loving adult daughters and her devoted dog. Ned, however, is another story. He is living a seemingly perfect existence with his stunning (and now pregnant) celebrity skincare guru girlfriend – and he is about to get his life turned

upside down. The prose is intense, the characters are complex and flawed, and while the first portion of the book (as Joanna dies) is a bit of a downer, the plot takes some interesting turns. Ultimately, it does not feel overly maudlin nor does it feel like merely a vengeful ghost story. While I wouldn’t say that I loved it, there’s no question that The Next is a unique story. If you are looking for a Christmas story that isn’t religious, syrupy and/or a hardline romance novel, then consider The Heart of Henry Quantum by Pepper Harding. It follows an eccentric, scatter-brained man named Henry (think Don Tillman from The Rosie Project but not as likable) as he tries to track down a bottle of Chanel No.5 to give to his wife for Christmas. Their marriage is loveless, as soon becomes clear, and he considers this fact carefully when he runs into an old fling who might just be ‘the one.’ Be forewarned that this is not really a sweet, heartwarming read.

Organic food: better or not? By Eric Kaiser When the U.S. Department of Agriculture released its guidelines — set of rules — for organic production the Secretary of Agriculture, Tom Vilsack, stated that ‘organic’ was a marketing tool and the USDA rules did not justify or imply any claims of superiority for organic produce. Organic producers have claimed that their production methods are better for the environment. There are several reasons cited for their claim. They claim they do not use chemical fertilizers and use only ‘natural’ fertilizers or natural fertilizer methods. Fertilizer ingredients taken out of the ground — mined — were placed there naturally millions of years ago. What could be more natural? The production of nitrogen fertilizers does involve a manufacturing process but remember our atmosphere is made up primarily of nitrogen. Another significant point about fertilizer is that plants absorb chemicals present in the soil. How they got there is irrelevant to the plant. It wants nitrogen, phosphorous, potassium, sulphur, magnesium, calcium, zinc, etc. and finds them in the soil. The avoidance of the use of ‘chemical’ fertilizers is a questionable environmental benefit.

The use of cover crops for all the benefits they give cannot be used as an environmental benefit for organic production. Conventional and no-till farmers use cover crops on a much larger acreage than the small amount used by organic producers. Cover crops offer excellent environmental benefits no matter the production system used. We have used cover crops on our farm for more than 30 years as conventional, conservation and now No-Till farmers. Most organic producers rely on tillage for weed control and seed bed preparation. They use terms such as ‘soil amendments’ for incorporation of cover crops and residue into the soil as benefits to the soil. This tillage practice has serious negative implications on soil life. The single worst practice for soil life is the application of that deadly combination of diesel fuel and iron: tillage. Tillage is very damaging to the fungal portion of soil life. That causes an imbalance to make soil life more bacterial. The fungal portion of soil life increases root access to soil borne nutrients. Other major negative environmental effects of tillage include the fossil fuel used to do it, and to create the equipment used to do it. The potential for compaction caused by driving over soil many times

has negative implications for rainfall absorption. This can cause erosion by the water not absorbed moving over the surface. Compaction also restricts root penetration. Tillage is also very detrimental to soil structure. No-till farming avoids these negative effects. Many organic producers claim their products are pesticide free. That may be true for some individuals, but scientific tests of commercial organic produce would show that not to be true. Tests have shown that while organic products have lower pesticide levels they are not generally pesticide free. Pesticide levels in both organic and conventional products are so low showing they are both very safe. There is another serious concern with organic farming. Productivity is lower. A recent USDA survey of organic production demonstrates that commercial organic has a significant yield gap. These statistics were analyzed by Steven Savage and reported in Forbes and repeated here. The analysis showed that “if all production was organic U.S. would have required farming 109 million more acres of land. That is an area equivalent to all the parkland and wildland areas in the lower 48 states or 1.8 times as much as all the

This article was written by longtime local farmer Eric Kaiser. Eric, with his son Max, farms 1,300 acres southwest of Napanee on Hay Bay. They are egg and pullet producers who grow the grain to feed the livestock. They make the feed for the livestock with their own on farm feed mill. They recycle the manure from the poultry to fertilize the crops.

Letter to the Editor

COLES FROM PAGE 6 The characters are just not people you want to root for, which is usually a prerequisite for the charming, quirky story this novel claims to be. However, it has comedic moments, plenty of honest reflection, and a very welldescribed San Francisco setting. If you tolerate flawed characters, it’s worth a try. If not, then steer clear. Thank you to NetGalley and the publishers for providing me with advance reader copies of these titles in exchange for honest reviews.

urban land in the nation. This is one of several reasons to question the assertion that organic farming is better for the environment.” I have no issue with individual farmers changing to organic production practices. I do take issue with ‘big organic’ using fear and lies about conventional farming and produce to sell their own. We have the safest most abundant food supply ever. That is courtesy of conventional agriculture. The final issue I would like to mention here is one of cost to consumers. A quick look at side by side displays in supermarkets will show the organic to be more expensive. As I have shown there are serious questions whether you are getting the benefits you expect for the extra cost. North American consumers enjoy the safest, most abundant and lowest cost food in the world. Why increase your food costs for questionable benefit?

A trip through the pages of The Napanee Beaver 50 Years Ago November 30, 1966 ■ Five local municipalities were preparing to hold elections — including the Town of Napanee. In Napanee, however, there wouldn’t be an election for mayor, since Lorne Smart was uncontested in seeking the position. All other positions were being contested, however. Deseronto was in a similar position, with only the councillor positions being contested; in Camden Township, Reeve Edgar Salsbury was back by acclamation as well. All positions were being contested in South Fredericksburgh and Adophustown. ■ Napanee Industries Limited and its employees, represented by the United Steelworkers, were meeting around the bargaining table, hoping to hammer out a new collective agreement. The former contract had expired in September, and negotiations had been ongoing since then. Robert Curran, the vice-president of the company, told the Beaver that negotiations were “progressing as well as could be expected.” Union rep Lloyd Bell said that wages remained the biggest outstanding issue.

35 Years Ago December 2, 1981 ■ The Town of Napanee was considering installing a new water pipeline from Lake Ontario to meet the water-supply needs of Napanee and surrounding municipalities. The project was expected to cost about $2.5 million. The alternative also presented by Greater Napanee Water and Sewer Board Manager Sal Gelsomino was to undertake extensive improvements to the current water treatment plant, to the tune of about $2.1 million. The local municipal water service was drawing its water directly from the Napanee River watershed. ■ A new condominium multi-unit apartment building was being planned for Napanee. David Vyas, part owner of Wallace’s Drug Store, made an offer of $60,000 to the town to purchase the one-acre former Beaver Lumber property. He said he planned to build anywhere between 12-20 condominium units. He said he also planned to do a market study to determine exactly how many condominium units to build. Mayor Lorne Smart declined to comment on the report until zoning for the deal had been finalized.

Local woman tapped to be spokesperson Jessica Boomhower to represent the county for Int’l Day of Persons with Disabilities

BY ADAM PRUDHOMME Staff Reporter

REATER Napanee Emergency Services’ Jessica Boomhower has been named Lennox and Addington County’s spokesperson for this year’s International Day of Persons with Disabilities, which is Saturday. Boomhower has become an inspiration for young people dealing with a disability after she suffered a stroke on June 24, 2014 while answering an emergency call with GNES. She was just 20 years old at the time. Not initially expected to survive, she would go on to spend 127 days in hospitals in Kingston and Toronto. After several weeks in the ICU, she beats the odds but still had a gruelling recovery ahead of her. Following her discharge, she was still unable to walk and spent the winter doing day rehab at Belleville General Hospital, working on physio, speech and occupational therapy. By spring of 2015 Boomhower had regained her ability to walk with assistance when her coverage stopped. After coming such a long way, Boomhower says she was frustrated that she would no longer receiving physio or rehab. Later that winter, at the insistence of her mother, Boomhower began working with a trainer that specialized in stroke recovery and really pushed her hard. After months of hard work and training, Boomhower is now able to walk on her own

CHRISTMAS FUNDRAISER… With Christmas just around the corner Napanee Lions are having a fundraiser for the local food bank on from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. on Dec. 11. We are looking to have wonderful day for everyone, with children coming to see Santa and being able to enjoy hot chocolate and cookies with Santa for free. We also will be taking photos of your children with Santa at your request for only $4. We will have craft and vender tables set up for your shopping pleasure so there will be something for everyone to enjoy, with all the money raised being donated back to the local food bank.

and can even swim laps in the pool. “My recovery has been a long road but it has been something that I am not willing to give up on,” said Boomhower. “I try everyday to improve; or at the very least learn to cope with my disabilities better than the day before.” She continues to train with GNES with the ambitious hope of being able to return. “Of course I would someday love to be able to return to firefighting in some way. I miss it greatly.” said Boomhower. “I still participate where I can in theory training as well as community events.” Few 20-year-olds have had to go through the rehab associated with a stroke, and there were times when Boomhower says it was tough to stay motivated. “Keeping up the rehab is certainly challenging at times,” said Boomhower when asked of the challenges of suffering a stroke at her age. “Most young people don’t have to endure the same things I’ve been through and I hope no one ever does. I do however think rehab is hard for everyone no matter your age or your busy schedule.” Boomhower says the community has been extremely supportive of her following her stroke, which helped her stay focused. “There are so many individuals who have helped me along this path to recovery,” she said. “I couldn’t begin to mention just one. The amount of support I’ve received has been nothing

short of remarkable. I’d like to thank everyone who has played a part during this crazy journey these last few years.” Throughout her rehab Boomhower has also been a member of the L&A County Advisory Committee, which is made up of two council members and five members of the community living with a disability. The committee meets four times a year to discuss the issues that pertain to people living with disabilities. “Being on the Joint Accessibility Advisory Committee for L&A has made me realize just how good we have it in our county,” said Boomhower. “Not only are we more advanced in many areas concerning accessibility, but we also have a lot of great people working hard to continuously improve it.” She encourages anyone who has an issue to bring it to their attention and they will do their best to address the problem. As for anyone in similar circumstances, her advice is simple. “I’d tell them to find what works for them,” she said. “Think of all the reasons to push on and to never give up. Always try their best and although it may not be easy, always persevere.” International Day of Persons with Disabilities was first launched by the United Nations in 1992 and has been observed on Dec. 3 every year since then. The objective is to reaffirm and draw attention to the rights of people living with a disability.

County to hold annual Christmas Tree contest

BY ADAM PRUDHOMME

That’s because on Dec. 13 the L&A County Museum Staff Reporter and Archives will be hosting their third annual ChristT’will be two weeks before mas Trees event, running Christmas and all through from 6 to 8 p.m. the museum of L&A County, This year, members of youth organizations will be local youth groups such as putting finishing touches on the Napanee and District their trees, hoping to win the Skating Club, Lamplighter bounty. Preschool, Scouts Canada,

Napanee Brownies, Napanee Girl Guides, 4H and LARC will be decorating the trees that will be spread throughout the museum. They’ll be using Clement Clarke Moore’s classic Christmas poem for inspiration, most commonly known as ‘The Night Before Christmas’. The tree event has become a holiday tradition in L&A County, typically drawing more than 200 guests to check out the trees. Each year they have a different theme with different

groups doing the decorating. Guests who drop by the museum that night will be encouraged to cast a vote for their favourite tree, with the people’s choice winning a prize. Those that cast a ballot will also be entered into a draw for a prize as well. A cup of holiday cheer and other snacks will also be available. “It’s going to be highly imaginative and creative I’m sure with what the trees will look like,” said JoAnne Himmelman, curator of the L&A

County Museum and Archives. “You can take elements of the book or one description of the book to decorate your tree. It’ll make every tree completely different from the next.” The event is free to the public and will include appearances by Father Christmas, a musical performance by Celtic Kitchen Party and live reindeer from Sherwood Farms. “It’s great for kids who have never seen reindeer before but even for those

that have there’s just something magical about seeing reindeer this time of the year,” said Himmelman. ‘The Night Before Christmas’ will be the theme of that week at the museum, as on Dec. 17 the theatre group known as DuffleBag will bring the story to life with a fun-filled performance for the whole family, starting at 2 p.m. Through improvisation and calling upon the audience to star in the story, they’ll tell a hilarious version of the holiday classic.

Tamworth students have benefit project sewn up BY SETH DUCHENE

being a generational gap in crafts in general. So, Vicki had set up for a group of students to come down. I brought down 12 girls for the first time (to try quilting), and they did amazing.” So amazing, in fact, that they decided to make a quilt of their own, and donate it. Since then, the students have been sewing at school to get it ready in time for HCTH’s next mission. “Kids brought in shirts from home. Some of them had gone out and bought samples from the craft store for material. We traced the squares, we cut the squares and we sewed them together so that we had this top bit,” she said. The last step was to join the bottom portion with the top portion, which they hoped to complete with the help of the women’s sewing group on Monday. “They’ve been sewing like crazy at school to get all of this put together. We had a design crew that decided how it should be all laid out. We’re here to stick it together,” said O’Rourke. Marion Coulter, the leader of the Tamworth sewing group, says it’s been a pleasure showing the students how it’s done, adding that the students have been interested and involved every step of the way.

Editor

Some Tamworth Elementary School Grade 7 and 8 students have successfully stitched together learning a new craft and helping those in need. This week, members of Elizabeth O’Rourke’s class put the finishing touches on a quilt they constructed with the assistance of a Tamworth women’s quilting group. The group gets together on Monday mornings at the Tamworth library branch; this past Monday, the students joined the ladies of the group to complete their project. In the new year, the quilt will be sent with Tom and Cheryl Martin of Helping Cope Through Hope as they head off to Uganda to conduct ongoing relief work with communities there, said O’Rourke. The Martins’ granddaughter, Maggie, is among the student quilters. The teacher said that the idea to make a quilt came from the school’s secretary, Vicki Clement, put interested students in touch with the quilting group earlier in the school year. “(Clement’s) a quilter, and so she knows the ladies (in the group),” said O’Rourke. “They were sort of chatting about there

‘Itsy Bitsy’ is your friend My heart skipped a beat. I was, for a second, breathless. I had waited 10 years for this moment. As I approached my garden pond, a garter snake slithered away in front of me. A beauty, about 60 centimetres long, a healthy specimen dressed in black and

yellow. I had met a new level of success in my gardening efforts. Some readers, no doubt, are squirming right now. How I would like to change that. Canadian snakes are, for the most part, not venomous. There are four species of venomous snakes

in Canada, including the Northern Pacific rattlesnake, Massasauga, Desert Nightsnake and Prairie rattlesnake. None of these reside in your particular part of Canada. Snakes get a lot of bad press. Why is it that when I play Snakes and Ladders,

Christmas is Coming and the Hickory Lane Alpaca Farm Store is open! If you’re looking for that special gift for that special someone, we have beautiful handmade and imported products to fit all budgets. Come visit the alpacas, browse the store and find that perfect gift! Open Tuesday to Sunday, 10:00 am to 4:00, evenings by appointment.

the ladders give me short cuts to where I want to go and the snakes cause me to go backwards? I know the answer: snakes don’t advertise very well. They slither, are cold-blooded, one of them introduced Eve to sin and there is that poisonous thing about them that poisons their reputation. Truth is, our native snakes are an important part of the natural web that makes up our ecosystem. They consume copious quantities of insects including ground beetles and slugs. Every so often, a snake is lost to a hawk or other predator. This is the part of dynamic biodiversity that we really don’t like to talk about: wildlife sometimes eats other wildlife.

Some spiders lay sticky traps, much like fly paper, and lie in wait for the kill. Others spin elaborate webs of spider-silk and wait for a meal to become entangled in it. They are more patient than a hungry cat waiting for a mouse. The orbweavers are amazing for their artistry and hard work. This is difficult to appreciate when you open the front door of your house only to walk through their handiwork, face-on.

Mark Cullen The Green File And speaking of venom (as I was with regards to snakes), the only indigenous spiders that are poisonous are the Brown Recluse and the Black Widow and there are precious few of them out there. This time of year, we frequently spot spiders indoors as they seek shelter from the cold weather. There is a temptation to stomp on them, unless you are my vegetarian brother-in-law Randy. He scoops them up in a dust pan and carefully moves them out of doors. I argue that this is a good idea but you don’t have to be a vegetarian to do it. Anybody can take pity on a lowly spider and put it gently in it’s proper place.

Common Spider The common garden spider is a good example of a creature in need of a public relations agent. Allow me to be that agent for a moment. Spiders are major predators of flies and other insects, many of them pests. Like the snake, they have a special place in the foodchain web. While a hawk may not swoop down and take a spider, a garden toad or frog will. In a nanosecond, a frog tongue will snap up a juicy spider and gulp it down. As Jean Vernon, columnist with The Garden magazine, is fond of saying, “Even if you can’t bring yourself to love spiders, you have to Amazing Spiders While you are transportadmire their handiwork and role they play in nature.” ing your charge out of doors,

contemplate this: Spiders spin silk that is among the strongest fibres know to mankind. Spiders don’t chew their food. They trap it, coat it in digestive enzymes and chow down the whole works when they are ready. No need for refrigeration or chewing. Spiders are arachnids, not insects; they have eight legs, not six. The Government of Canada reminds us in their bulletin, ‘Spiders’ from the Department of Health, that they are, “natural and efficient pest control agents.” I hope you got that last point: spiders are effective pest control agents. This must mean that they are not pests themselves. You cannot have a thief who is a thiefcontrol agent, now can you? Which brings me back to my first point and my life mission: to convince readers who think that many creatures that are bad, that they are indeed very helpful and worthy of nurturing, if not just leaving alone. I urge you to consider this the next time you are trapped in the shower with a spider. Mark Cullen is an expert gardener, member of the Order of Canada, author and broadcaster.

L&A 4-H celebrates its best with awards banquet BY ADAM PRUDHOMME Staff Reporter

From baking cookies to showing livestock, 2016 was another busy year for the Lennox and Addington 4-H Club. The agricultural-based organization offers children a chance to learn by doing, giving them hands-on projects to work on throughout the year. Their hard work is often on display at the Napanee, Odessa and Centreville Fairs throughout the summer. They also host several petting zoos at local events throughout the county. On Sunday at the South Fredericksburgh Hall, they took the time to reflect back on the year that was by handing out some awards and bidding farewell to graduating member Sarina Goodfellow. A slideshow highlighting her many years with the club, from trips to the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair in Toronto to participating in the local fairs, was projected onto the wall. Goodfellow

was also named the Top Agricultural Member of the Year. Taylor Huff-Hauseux was presented with the Top Lifestyle Member of the Year award for a second straight year. All told, the L&A 4-H Club had 20 different groups for all ages. Each group leader was given a few minutes to offer a recap of their year as well as hand out some smaller awards. “It’s a way for the kids to get recognized for all the hard work they’ve done for the year as well as give an appreciation to the parents and volunteers that spend hours preparing the club meetings,” said L&A 4-H Club president Dave Goodfellow. “Most leaders have more than one club that they lead, maybe three or four. It’s a very busy and hectic year for the volunteers to do that. We need to take the time to show them that appreciation and hopefully get other parents to become new leaders and carry on that tradition for years to come.”

Correction A story on Page 12 in last week’s Beaver contained some incorrect information. The date for Amnesty International’s ‘Write for Rights’ event is Saturday, Dec. 10. The Beaver apologizes for the error and any confusion it may have caused.

The next two years will be busy ones for the local club. First up in 2017 they will be taking part in several events that help mark Canada’s 150th birthday. “Right now it’s just in its infancy stages as far as what’s going to happen,” said Goodfellow, but he did note they are accepting funding from several different local businesses to help organize events that mark the occasion. Then in 2018 they will turn their attention to their own milestone, as it will mark 100 years that the club has been operating in Lennox and Addington. Last year they got started on a time capsule and they will continue to add to that over the next two years before donating it to the Lennox and Addington County Museum and Archives.

Sheldon Calbury finished the night with 35 saves for the win. Both teams registered 38 shots and each had one powerplay opportunity, with only the Panthers converting. It was a stark contrast to their previous meeting on Nov. 19, when they combined for 57 minutes worth of penalties and 18 power-play chances. Port Hope won that game 4-3 in overtime. “There’s been some important learning going on and we look forward to the next time we play them,” Hartwick said of the Panthers, who have been a thorn in Napanee’s side for the last two and half seasons, including sweeping them in the last two league finals. The Raiders won’t see their rivals until Dec. 17.

Leroy Blugh’s wall of fame display inside the Strathcona Paper Centre will require a bit of an update following the Ottawa Redblacks’ thrilling 39-33 overtime victory in Sunday’s 104th Grey Cup, held at Toronto’s BMO Field. Serving as the Redblacks’ defensive line coach, Sunday’s win over the Calgary Stampeders marked the second time Blugh clinched the iconic Canadian Football League trophy, the other time coming as a player back in 1993 with the Edmonton Eskimos. The Napanee native played 15 seasons in the CFL with Edmonton and Toronto before joining the Redblacks coaching staff in 2014. Sunday’s game was a tense affair, with the Stampeders rallying with 16 fourth quarter points to force overtime. After Redblack quarterback Henry Burris hit Ernest Jackson with an 18 yard touchdown in extra time, the Redblacks needed one last stop to pull off the victory. “I pulled the defensive line aside and I said ‘fellas, don’t sway, don’t flinch, this isn’t the time to ad-lib, this isn’t the time to do someone else’s job. This is the time to focus on your assignment. This is the time to forge your way through and continue to play fast but it’s a time to play disciplined,’” said Blugh of going into overtime. “The boys rallied behind finishing the game off. I’ve never been so impressed with young athletes like that to lock in and focus. They were exhausted but they found a way to get it done.” Ottawa’s defense was able to hold Calgary to a three and out possession to secure the win. Heading into the game the 15-2-1 West champion Stamps were heavily favoured over the 8-9-1 Redblacks. “We heard all the hype and that was okay,” said Blugh. “In our camp as far

Leroy Blugh, seen here during his wall-of-fame induction with the Town of Greater Napanee, is a d-line coach with the Ottawa Redblacks. as we were concerned it wasn’t about them. Our game was totally about us, we just felt all season long if we went in and battled and played with discipline and limited our penalties and played fast, that we could beat anyone.” A member of the coaching staff from their expansion season, Blugh has seen all the highs and lows, from a 2-16 expansion season to reaching the 2015 Grey Cup before losing 26-20 to Edmonton. “Last year, that was just our second year and we were young and didn’t have a whole lot of experience,” said Blugh. “We fought hard and made it to the Cup and frankly a lot of us were just happy to get there. This year was different in that we had an expectation to win, not just get there. The environment and whole attitude around the team was much different.” Having now won a Grey Cup as a player and a coach, Blugh says they are both very different experiences but still equally as thrilling. “At the end of it all

you’re just absolutely proud to see the players get to experience something that you did,” said Blugh. “I’m really happy for these guys with the work they put in they got to see the fruits of that labour and came out with a championship.” Blugh says he has received over 100 texts and messages of congratulations from his friends and family in Napanee. He was grateful for all the support, mentioning several people back home who weren’t even football fans tuned in just because his team was playing. In 2015 his hometown dedicated an entire day to the football star, in celebration of his election into the CFL Hall of Fame. A display case that highlights his playing career, complete with an NDSS Golden Hawks jersey sporting his signature number 89, can be found at the SPC. The 50-year-old Blugh has one year remaining on his contract with the Redblacks and plans to return as a defensive line coach in 2017.

Raiders to host Swiss Tier III club on Jan. 2 BY ADAM PRUDHOMME Staff Reporter

The Napanee Raiders will join the trend of international competition over the holiday season, welcoming Switzerland’s ECH Dübendorf to the SPC for an exhibition game on Jan. 2. ECH Dübendorf, who play in the Swiss Ice Hockey Federation’s Tier III Junior league, will make their stop in Napanee as part of a six game tour through Ontario. The tour has been organized by the Provincial Junior Hockey League under the sanction of the Ontario Hockey Association and Hockey Canada. Dübendorf is a suburb of Zürich and boasts a population of about 26,000. “Teams in our league play a really fast, exciting brand of hockey,” Raiders GM Adam Bramburger said of the exhibition game. “With the holiday season approaching, international hockey is at the front of mind with the World Juniors. This is the perfect way to showcase our players and invite people to the arena who may not have watched our games.” All told 22 Swiss players will make the trip to Canada, all aged 17-20. Their league back home is consid-

ered comparable to Ontario’s Junior C. “Canada is the motherland of hockey,” said ECH Dübendorf head coach Nico Ellinger in a release. “For every hockey player in Switzerland, and maybe in Europe, it is a dream to play games in Canada. For most it will remain a dream. I want to make something unforgettable for the players. It is a great honour for us.” Ellinger also adds the team should be just hitting its stride on its Ontario tour as it rolls into the Olympic sized ice rink at the SPC, after skating its first couple of games in smaller, NHL sized arenas. Napanee will be the fifth stop on the tour for the Swiss club, who will face the Kincardine Bulldogs Dec. 28, Mount Forest Patriots Dec. 29, Mitchell Hawks Dec. 30, Port Perry Mojacks Jan. 1, Raiders Dec. 2 and Alliston Hornets Jan. 3. Tickets for the Jan. 2 exhibition in Napanee are on sale now at Gray’s IDA as well as all Raider home games. They’ll sell for $10 in advance or $12 on the day of the event. Puck drop will be 5 p.m. Children 12 and under will receive a voucher for a free future Raiders home game.

Government of Canada helps Canadian Agricultural Industry Gain New Market Opportunities in China

Nov. 9 - (Ottawa, Canada) – Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada The Honourable Lawrence MacAulay, Minister of Agriculture and AgriFood, has concluded his second successful mission to China where he helped secure new export opportunities for Canadian agricultural producers and processors. Over the 10-day mission, Minister MacAulay and a delegation of over 100 Canadian industry representatives from all 10 provinces visited the cities of Qingdao, Beijing and Shanghai. Meetings were held with Chinese ministers, agriculture and agri-food businesses and exporters. The Minister also attended two major tradeshows in Qingdao and Shanghai to help promote Canadian products. As a result of the two tradeshows, Canadian industry representatives reported qualifying more than 5,500 leads,over 30 percent of which they believe will lead to future business. In terms of sales, industry representatives reported some $37 million in on-site sales and $230 million in anticipated sales over the next year. In addition, as a result of various networking and promotional events where Minister MacAulay was key in encouraging business-to-business meetings, such as Export Cafés and Savour Canada events, Canadian industry also reported numerous on-site sales and leads that will generate business. Quick facts • China is the world's second largest economy, and Canada's secondlargest single-country trading partner.

RAIDERS | Showdown with Islanders looms CONTINUED FROM PAGE 21 They’ll have three more regular season meetings scheduled after that. Friday’s game wound up being the only game the Raiders would play this weekend as Saturday’s date in Campbellford was postponed, with no make up date announced as of yet. The second place Raiders now sport a 13-7 record on the season, now exactly halfway through their 40 game regular season. They are 12 points back of the unbeaten Panthers, who have a game in hand. “We’re real happy with the personnel we have,” Hartwick said upon reflecting on the first half of the

season. “We’ve got a lot of young guys so we’re going through some growing pains but a lot of guys are showing some real good signs. We’re happy where we’re at. The first half has been decent, we’ve had some games where we need to be better and the guys know that. We look forward to the second half.” Napanee was fairly consistent in the first half, never losing more than two games in a row. Their longest win streak was a 7-0 run to start the year. Napanee’s loss, coupled with a pair of wins by the Gananoque Islanders this weekend, has made things tighter in the standings. Napanee has a three point

lead over the third place Islanders, who have gone 11-8-1 in their first 20 games. Picton is fourth at 911-1 with 19 points. The Amherstview Jets are fifth with a 6-14 record, seven points back of a playoff spot. The Rebels are still winless at 0-18. Napanee will welcome the Rebels to the SPC tomorrow night for a 7:30 p.m. puck drop. On Sunday they travel to Gananoque for an important showdown with the Islanders. In between those two games the players and coaches will make an appearance in the Napanee parade of lights on Saturday night.

Gan CC wins Ramshaw Memorial BY SANDY EASTLAKE Staff Reporter

apanee and District Curling Club’s annual Ladies Open Bonspiel was another great success thanks to Heather Ramshaw and her committee of Christine Perry and club decorator Lana Jaeger. The fourth annual Eleanor Ramshaw Memorial Trophy was presented to the winning team of Lynne VanDalen, Kris Fox, Tracy Moulton and Kathy Grier from the Gananoque CC. Sheryl Dobenko’s team from Rideau CC in Ottawa was the other two game winner. The next top teams were Heather Ramshaw from Napanee and Dianne Wylie from Cataraqui in Kingston. A great day of fun was had

N

by all thanks to the kind sponsorship of Chris Ramshaw and Playground Licenced Childcare (Christine Perry). A huge assortment of raffle prizes were offered thanks to Deb Currier, Gayle Johnson, Shelley Alkenbrack, Ingeborg Donald, Benita Murphy, Shelley Alkenbrack, Heather Ramshaw and Sandy Eastlake. The winners took turns thanking the kitchen staff for providing morning goodies, a delicious lunch and a fabulous dessert table, the bar staff for keeping thirsts quenched and the ice technician for terrific ice to curl on. Heather ended the speeches by thanking her sponsors, thanking all our club volunteers and especially thanking all the curlers for making her job

an easy one. Now that the calendar has flipped to December there’s only a few weeks left to curl before the holidays. Curlers should check your calendar to see when they want to curl in the new year and let the league representative know their wishes. Lists are being circulated now. NDCC’s semi-annual General Meeting is set to go this Sunday at 1 p.m. As this is a members owned club, all members are encouraged to attend and assist with the day to day procedures of club business.

Horror movie to be filmed downtown

BY ADAM PRUDHOMME Staff Reporter

Anyone who spots Santa Claus walking along Dundas Street in downtown Napanee carrying an axe on Monday between 8 p.m. to 11 p.m.

needn’t be alarmed — Jolly Old St. Nick is just acting. A crew from Dystopian Films Ltd. will be in town throughout the day filming a pair of scenes for an upcoming winter horror movie. Lights and cameras will be set up along Dundas Street to

record the scene. Simon Phillips has been granted permission from Greater Napanee to use the town as a backdrop for their film. Along with Santa’s scene, which will require Dundas St. to be closed between East St. and John

St., a stripped car will be set on fire in Conservation Park parking lot from 4 p.m. to 11 p.m. Members of Greater Napanee Fire Services will be on hand to extinguish the blaze, and may even have a small cameo in the film. An early morning ‘after-

math’ scene of the car fire will be filmed on Tuesday, with the crew promising to have the car removed by 10 a.m. As part of their agreement with the town, the film crew has agreed to hire a security guard who will be on hand for the car burning

scene to ensure members of the public do not enter the area. The film crew is also on the hook for any damage that may occur during the filming, as well as putting down a security deposit to cover the cost of towing the car should they fail to do so themselves.

Potential Scams

During the month of November, officers with the Napanee OPP detachment responded to four calls from concerned citizens regarding the misrepresentation of services by person(s) attending their residences claiming to be inspectors employed by a particular township or with certain energy companies. Occurrences were reported in Stone Mills Township, Loyalist Township and in Greater Napanee. In an incident that occurred in Odessa, a woman answered her door and was told by salesmen they were “here because of the water pipes” and claimed to be representing Loyalist Township. The OPP are aware of unsolicited door-to-door sales of water heaters, furnaces, air conditioners, water filters and other products by various companies who sometimes use aggressive and high pressure sales tactics. The OPP advises that if someone comes to your home, ask to see the person’s issued identification and/or seller’s license or registration. Make note of his or her name, the name and address of the company, and whether the person carries proper identification. The OPP advises that homeowners not be pressured into buying or signing anything or allowing anyone inside your home; if you feel threatened or intimidated, ask the person to leave your property. If you are suspicious, immediately report the incident to police, the OPP say. To learn more about protecting your rights and recognizing fraud visit the Competition Bureau of Canada and/or Canadian Anti-fraud Centre websites online.

E-mail Frauds

The Napanee detachment of

the OPP has received several reports from concerned citizens in regards to an email demanding payment for a traffic violation. The email claims that the recipient owes money for a “registered traffic violation” and shows a hyperlink where you can “view the photo now”. The OPP say that it is believed that by clicking on any link contained in the email, malware is loaded onto your device, which could damage your device or access your device’s protected information. The OPP advise that you never click a hyperlink from someone you don’t know, and never provide personal information or money unless you are sure of the person or business you are dealing with. Please delete these emails. For more information or to report a scam attempt visit www.antifraudcentrecentreantifraude.ca or call 1-888-495-8501.

Stunt Driving

Last Saturday at 9:30 p.m., officers from the Napanee OPP detachment received a call from the public of a black sports car travelling at a high rate of speed on Highway 401 westbound near Marysville Road. Police conducted radar patrol on Highway 401 near Belleville and observed a black Porsche travelling at a high rate of speed. The officers locked the vehicle speed at 215 kilometres per hour in a posted 100km/hr zone. Officers were safely able to stop the vehicle, which contained five occupants. The driver was an 18-yearold male from Toronto, Ontario, who was charged under the Highway Traffic Act with for stunt driving. His vehicle and driver’s licence were seized for seven days. He is scheduled to appear in provincial court in Napanee on Jan. 5.

Christmas concert returns to Newburgh

BY ADAM PRUDHOMME Staff Reporter

Donald Trump will make an appearance in a skit. She refuses to give away any spoilers, saying people will just have to come out and see for themselves. “A lot of the things that people count on and the reason people still like to come are still there and in place,” said Wood. “A lot of it’s going to be just as familiar as it always has been with new twists and something a little different.” An afternoon performance is scheduled for 3 p.m. with an evening one set for 7 p.m. to accommodate for the large crowds they see every year. The performance will be held in the Newburgh Public School gym. Admission is free, though donations will be accepted. As always the money raised from the shows will go towards providing gifts to less fortunate children this holiday season. Wood says donations from several local businesses allow for them to spend 100 per cent of their proceeds on buying toys.

Our next issue: JAN 7/17

There’s sure to be plenty of laughs at Newburgh Public School on Dec. 10 as the Community Christmas Concert returns for its 37th year. Once again directed by Mae Wood, the show has become a holiday tradition in the region, famous for mixing comedy skits with classic Christmas carol numbers. “What’s funny is the way that we write our scripts now,” said Wood. “Up until about 20 years ago there wasn’t that availability of the Internet or Google or iTunes or all that stuff to find material to write. Back in the day it was buying magazines and books, CDs, tapes or cassettes sometimes. Life has changed a lot in those 37 years but I hope the one thing that hasn’t changed is it’s that same feeling we always hope to bring the community and I

feel like we’re still doing that.” Members from the original cast from 37 years ago still take part in skits, as well as second and now third generations. “My oldest sister, her daughter is in it and her daughter’s daughter is in it,” said Wood. “We’re full blown three generations showing up at the concert which is pretty unbelievable.” The cast ranges from 22 years old to more than 60 years old, though Wood is hesitant to say just how many are over 60. As always, the concert will feature almost all original content. Given all that’s happened in 2016, the sketch writers had no shortage of inspiration. “People can look forward to getting a bit of a review on some of the highlights of the things that happened in our world in the past year,” said Wood. She says she’s constantly asked whether or not

Shaw Direct, Raiders Team Up Seth DuChene-Staff

Municipality helps Lions Club fill Christmas hampers

Once again this year, Shaw Direct is joining with the Napanee Raiders to help KidSport, a charity dedicated to helping families in need pay for their children’s minor sports. For every goal scored by the Raiders this season, Shaw Direct will contribute $20 to KidSport. Before last Friday nights’ game, Shaw Direct’s Steven Scharfe was greeted by Napanee Raiders players (from left) Riley Steeves, Justynn Steven and Zach Knapp-Hermer.

Beaver Staff

Loyalist Township staff are inviting area residents to help fill the Lions Club hampers, distributed each Christmas in the municipality. Christmas trees will be located in the lobby of the Odessa Municipal Office and the W.J. Henderson Recreation Centre, where donations of non-perishable food items and unwrapped toys will be gratefully accepted between now and Dec. 14. To kick off the campaign, the municipal office will host a drop-in event today with hot chocolate, apple cider and an array of treats. The public are welcome to drop by, enjoy a treat, and make a donation to the Christmas hampers. If you get a parking ticket in Loyalist, the municipality is offering, for the first time, the option to pay for the ticket by bringing a new, unwrapped toy, of equal or greater value than the amount of the ticket to the Recreation Centre or the Municipal Office between now and Dec. 16.

SURVEY | Should reflect wishes of community CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 The telephone survey will be completely random and will take about 10 minutes to complete. “We’re looking at whether they participate (in indoor aquatics), where they participate and when they participate, like winter, summer, fall or spring,” said Stevenson. “We look at their future participation with indoor aquatics to determine that if a pool was developed, how likely is it they would participate in a range of activities.” The survey questions will also look to determine the ideal location for an indoor pool. “We eliminate any way of biasing who responds,” said Stevenson. “It isn’t just people (who support the pool). It will be an accurate reflection of the public and the community and that was important for this step.” Stevenson says they took into account the age and gender of residents and weighted the amount of residents they will call from that particular group so as to get an accurate reflection of the entire population. The results of the survey, which will be kept confidential, will be submitted to the Greater Napanee Pool Task Force. They will use the information in a report they will submit to council in early 2017.

Dear Friend:

As the Christmas season approaches, it is my privilege to invite you to partner with The Salvation Army to make a memorable Christmas celebration for those in need, by giving a contribution to the 2016 Christmas Appeal.

Because of last year’s generous donors, The Salvation Army was able to assist numerous families, helping them maintain a sense of dignity and providing hope in seemingly hopeless situations.

Poverty is no respecter of persons, and your 2016 gift will make the difference to someone this Christmas and into the coming year.

In the midst of all busyness of the Christmas season, please take a moment to make a donation and experience the joy that comes with helping others.

Have a blessed Christmas and a Happy New Year
