“I was born and raised on the farm. I’ve only had two jobs; I grew up farming and then came into this (the fire department). Now I’m going back and I’m just going to enjoy life living back there,” said Shetler. Shetler has been with the fire department for 26 years, the first two of which he was a volunteer. When he began with the fire department, though, he never imagined it would become a lifelong career. “When I started as a volunteer, I never thought of becoming a career firefighter,” he said. And even after he became a staff firefighter, he never saw himself making it up the ranks as high as he did. When he became a full time firefighter in 1989, he said his goal was to become captain. However, whenever an opportunity arose, Shelter took it. “As things evolved I always looked for new challenges and just kept moving forward with my career,” he said. In 1995, Shelter became the training officer – a position he held for about 10 years. In 2005 the department created a full time deputy position and it was offered to Shetler. In 2009, Shelter became acting chief for about a year. “I’ve had a great career and I’ve worked with some fantastic people. The peo-

But for me, it’s time to go do something different,” said Shetler on his last day of work, last Friday. “I’m going back to the farm,” he said. “Our farm has been in our family for a couple hundred years. I’m going back to fix it up and bring it back to what it was.” Shetler moved back to the farm he grew up on, in Newburgh, about a year ago.

ADOPT A NEW BEST FRIEND

He says some of the things he will miss most from his time on the fire department are the people he has worked with and the constant positive feedback he has received from the community. “We go out and do stuff and hearing the public react saying, ‘thanks guys’ and ‘you guys did a wonderful job’ that’s pretty neat to hear,” said Shetler. He said he will always remember the tragic accident in 2010 but as much as the department and the community went through a horrible time, he said it was heartwarming to see the community pull together to support the fire department and those affected. “It struck me last night, one of the things that kind

of stands out in my head the most, I think, was after we had our accident, the outpouring of support from the community,” said Shetler. “You don’t realize the affect you’re having, but hearing about all the signs that were up, I thought that was pretty cool to see that and hear about that. … It’s a quiet subject but there was a lot of good that came out of it. Out of every tragedy something good happens.” Now that he’s retired, Shetler is most looking forward to rebuilding his family farm and spending more time with family. Though he is no longer in the office throughout the week, he says he plans to check in on the fire department from time to time.

EDITORIAL Boxing Day is a great way to score that big ticket item, at a greatly reduced cost, that Santa just couldn't fit in his sleigh. No doubt all across this great nation shoppers were lined up outside at 3 a.m. this morning, or earlier, in hopes of being the first one inside their favourite store. Here's hoping the madness won't escalate to some of the scenes we saw this past Black Friday where shoppers resorted to physical violence in an attempt to get their hands on the last PlayStation 3 or DVD player. Economically speaking, Boxing Day is great for retailers. One last chance to milk the holiday season and boost their 2013 year sales. Ask most retail workers however and they'd likely say they'd rather be spending the day with friends and family, not manning the cash register of an over-crowded department store. Boxing Day is unique in that it has no religious or cultural affiliation. It's a holiday that applies to all Canadians. There's no chance of offending anyone by wishing them a 'Merry Boxing Day,' though most retail workers would likely say there's nothing merry about the day. How people want to 'celebrate' the day is entirely up to them. We think, for those lucky enough to have the day off, it's the perfect chance to spend at home with the family. Instead of rushing off to the mall, maybe dashing through the snow in a toboggan would be a better way to spend the day. For those that just wrapped up their Christmas celebration, a day of relaxation might be a gift in itself. Perhaps a chance to see the other side of the family that couldn't make it out to Christmas dinner. For those who don't celebrate on Dec. 25, they could likely use a break from the hectic day-to-day routine just as well. If shoppers didn't crowd the malls, stores wouldn't waste time and money opening their doors and paying staff a couple of extra dollars to work on Dec. 26. Most coveted items will still be at the store tomorrow. Heck, most businesses now host Boxing Week sales and extend the savings into the new year. A day off to spend with the family however, that's worth celebrating.

Food 4 Fines Catherine Coles Coles’ Notes One of my favourite reads of 2013 was Me Before You. Although romance novels are not usually my thing, British author Jojo Moyes never disappoints. In Me Before You, our protagonist Louisa takes a job as caregiver to a man in a wheelchair. An accident has left Will a quadriplegic and, without any hope of recovery, he decides he wants to die. It sounds grim, but it is actually a very positive novel. A passage on Page 135 caught

by eye for obvious reasons: “On library “criminals”. The fine for Saturday morning I went to the one item has a $10.00 ceiling and library. I think I probably hadn’t it doesn’t accrue interest. Furbeen in there since I was at school thermore, I assure you that there is no library police – quite possibly out force roaming the of fear that they streets of Lennox & would remember the Addington.

able food donation that will, in turn, be donated to local food banks. In Me Before You, Louisa was surprised by the change in the library since she had been there as a child. We often hear similar sentiments from people who haven’t visited a public library in years. First of all, Louisa noticed it was not completely silent. A mother and baby group was in full swing, people were reading magazines and chatting quietly while others browsed through books and DVDs or used the public computers. The library staff didn’t stand over Louisa’s shoulder, but rather they pleasantly mentioned that they were

around if she needed assistance. Her fears of being accosted were unfounded -- and no one mentioned the lost Judy Blume book! Public Libraries are intended to offer access to information and entertainment to enrich your life. Causing you financial hardship is not the goal of the overdue fines, it is simply a means of collection control. We just need items back in a timely matter so others can make use them. Take advantage of the last week of this month’s Food 4 Fines program and bring back those overdue books. You will be helping your neighbours in need and also freeing yourself of any library guilt.

Christmas thoughts from Odessa Public School A couple of years ago I went to Foodland with Jordyn B. and my brother. When we got there we decorated a gingerbread house. I made the roof out of icing. When it was done we went home. After dinner I ate the door of my gingerbread house. It was delicious. Then it was bedtime. Ryan P. On Christmas night a girl named Emma was sleeping. Then Santa came to Emma's room and put candy and small presents in the stocking that was on the edge of Emma's bed. Santa went back to the North Pole. The little girl woke up and opened up all her presents. It was her best Christmas ever. The End Danielle W. Jingle Bells ring on Christmas Day. Kids play in the snow. Love is sweet. Lights on in the dark. Ice is for skating. Snow angels fly on Christmas. Red is a Christmas colour. Alayna L. School is out, time to go. Christmas is coming. Lights are up and lit. Light the way Rudolph. Jordy B. Elves are working hard at the North Pole. Kids are getting excited because elves on the shelves are coming. Mrs. Claus is in the kitchen making a fresh batch of cookies. Santa's packing presents in tight to the sleigh. Kids are

sprinting up the stairs to their bedrooms. "On Prancer, on Dancer…," calls Santa. By Maddie V. It’s Christmas Time to cheer. Love goes everywhere. Candy canes, mistletoe, presents, oh my. Stockings are hung, Santa comes. Children sleeping on Christmas Eve. Have a holly, jolly, great Christmas. By Jordyn

And have a white night. So always believe, ‘Till the end of time. But if you forget, just think … Think of the snow and ice so white. That’s what you should do!! By Brody Christmas is here. Christmas is magical. The elves are at the workshop making toys. Beware, Santa is watching you. Angels are above. Jesus is also above and loves you. It is his birthday. That is why Christmas is alive. By Tianna

Christmas Poem Snow falls on the ground. Christmas trees are up. Christmas has arrived. Kids are getting presents. Cookies and milk is out for Santa. Santa says, “ho ho! Merry Christmas” as he flies off the roof. By Nolan Winter!!! Winter is cold. Winter is bright. So be yourself.

Decorating outside Parents hang the lights, while we build a snowman. The dog and cat roll in the snow. Santa’s sleigh is high in the sky, so we run inside and go to bed. By Elisa Snowflakes White snowflakes falling. Fires burning. Stockings hanging full of chocolate. Christmas is about getting together

With your family and your friends. By Zack Christmas morning Snow is coming here. Show your Christmas cheer. Santa is almost here. So put out some milk and cookies. Go to sleep so Santa will come. Then when you wake up there will be presents. By Mackenzie Christmas Day On Christmas day there is jolly all around. On Christmas day Santa’s proud. On Christmas day elves are happy and glad. On Christmas day Santa’s waiting for next year and Jesus is looking down. By Kaeden How to Put up a Christmas Tree First find an axe or chainsaw. Then go to the woods and find the perfect tree. Take your axe or chainsaw. If you are using a chainsaw, pull the sparkplug to start the engine. If you are using an axe, hold the axe on the wooden handle. Point the sharp pointy end toward the bottom of the tree. Once you have cut it down, you grab the tree and take it home. Once you have got your tree in your house, get a stand and put your tree in the stand. Put lights on it. If you have garland, put that on your tree next. Then put all your other decorations on. By Kaiden

Who does Canada Post Serve? Dear Sir, As you know home delivery will cease early next year and the price of stamps will increase substantially, without any public consultation. Canada Post president and CEO Deepak Chopra claims that senior citizens are happy to have an excuse to leave the house every day to pick up their mail. I feel there are a number of things wrong with Mr Chopra's statement: 1 How many senior citizens did Mr Chopra speak with? Will all seniors even people who don't normally leave the house leap at the chance to go out to get their

mail especially in winter weather? In other words where is his evidence for his claim? 2 Senior citizens who are unable or unwilling to venture out of the house will be forced to go without their mail in icy or snowy conditions. Bills might go unpaid and seniors will be forced from their homes. 3 Not everyone has a computer. Downloading bank statements and bills is not an option for someone who has no computer or who doesn't have the expertise and experience to use one. If people are unable to continue to be self sufficient how

will higher costs and less service save seniors money and how will this be beneficial to Canada? Deepak Chopra was on the board of directors of the think tank that recommended the cut in service and increase in stamp prices. Naturally Canada Post claims this

Letter to the Editor is not a conflict of interest even though the source of the think tank's funding has yet to be disclosed. According to the National Post Newspaper dated December 12, 2013, Canada Post has nearly two

dozen presidents and vice-presidents. The article states that Mr Chopra earns between $422,500 and $479,100 plus a bonus of 33%. Imagine how many letters could be delivered if the number of presidents and vice-presidents of Canada Post was cut in half? The presumption is that Canada Post is a business and must make a profit. If the cuts in service and the increase costs to the consumer are not adopted there might not be a profit in the future. Who does Canada Post serve? The Canadian people or the government's requirement that public services make money?

Announcing the changes by Canada Post after the House has risen for Christmas means that questions sent to our elected representatives will go unanswered. The timing is cowardly which I feel demonstrates the cynical disrespectful attitude of the current government and Canada Post toward Canadians. Please stand up to the service cuts and the increased costs by contacting Mr Chopra or your representative in Ottawa. Thank you, Gail Knowles Box 124 Yarker ON K0K 3N0 613-377-1875

Surveys gets us away from texting and computers One morning in late October, I was stationed at a local wetland. I had been doing this periodically with a retired Canadian Wildlife Service biologist, as this particular wetland had been identified as a major overnight roost for great egrets, one of two such roosts in Prince Edward County. To perform this exercise correctly, one must arrive well before light, as the egrets leave their roost for feeding areas once there is enough light to do so. Our job was to count these egrets as they appeared on the horizon from the back of this wooded wetland and establish numbers and trends. On this particular morning, I was flying solo. It was raining lightly, and a stiff east wind was causing me to shiver as I desperately tried to seek some meagre shelter from a stunted red cedar along the edge of the wetland. It was then that I started talking to myself, wondering about the wisdom of standing out here in these conditions, in the pitch black of early morning. As a faint glimmer of light appeared on the horizon, behind me a barrage of shotgun blasts came from a nearby cattail marsh. I was no longer alone. Others, devoted to their passion, were out there, too, somewhere,

and I felt reenergized. And so it was on December 14th, three of us found ourselves in abominable conditions again. This time, we were standing along the shoreline of Prince Edward Bay, counting waterfowl in minus 27 degree wind chill as thousands of geese and ducks floated by amongst floating cobblestone ice. There were over 2,000 Canada geese, the total determined through a procedure we learned long ago on estimating numbers. Since most surveyors tend to under estimate, one simply counts as accurately as possible, then adds a few variables and unknowns, and come up with a figure – in this case, 2,200. As one scientist once told me, “It’s not important if you are not dead on when estimating – as long as you are consistent.” With them were 900 mallards, and a mixture of buffleheads, tundra swans and one lone northern pintail. With bare fingers frozen to the spotting scope, the totals were documented and we chose to eat our lunch in the car as icy spume from the huge waves sprayed upon the erratics that dared show themselves above the surface of the water. In the distance, a shoal was pounded relentlessly as pock-

Terry Sprague

Outdoor Rambles ets of waterfowl sought out protected areas where they continued to dabble and feed. The decision paid off. Within minutes, a peregrine falcon streaked through the blowing snow and attempted to take out a mallard, but failed in its bid for lunch. It was the only one seen that day within the entire 20 km census circle. This survey was part of the Prince Edward Point Christmas Bird Count, otherwise known by the birding types as the CBC. It can be a rigorous task as numerous parties involving car loads of dedicated birders cover their

assigned areas. The end results are but a sample of what’s really out there, but the totals at the end of the day, here, and across North American, provide insight into what winter birds are around and in what numbers. The ceremony also determines not only wintering populations, but also migration trends. The annual event has been a tradition since 1900. There are now well over 50,000 similar counts across North America. Birders on these counts tend to be the crème de la crème of the crop. They need to have the ability to identify quickly, and not dally, as time is of the essence if the area is to be covered properly. The ability to identify a pileated woodpecker by its flight pattern when it is but a mere silhouette, a flitting yellow-rumped warbler when a clear sight on the bird is impaired and all there is to go by is a single call note. It’s not a day for “birdwatching” per se, but rather, a day to put our experience in identification to the ultimate test, and move on to the next profitable spot. Sometimes a gut feeling beckons us to return to an area just covered, and it usually pays off. This happened to us on a questionable road in our area where four wheel drive is often neces-

sary. We came upon a pocket of cedar waxwings, robins, and two northern flickers. On our first pass through there not 15 minutes earlier, we had seen nothing. Some of us take part in more than one count. The following day, I was on another shoreline, at Presqu’ile Park, for their annual count. The compilation at the end of the day with all its party leaders and helpers present, accompanied by scalding hot lasagne and steaming tourtiere, produced a number of discoveries among the humdrum blue jays, chickadees. There were Iceland gulls and a glaucous gull found, rummaging through a dump. Another party found 10 bluebirds, while one skilled observer found a wintering chipping sparrow. These surveys we do may be uncomfortable at times due to the weather, but they do get us out outdoors in the winter, and I think we all agree that we should be away from computers, television and texting more often.

Eat Local, Live Better “Food is an important part of a balanced diet.” ~Fran Lebowitz, Metropolitan Life According to Kathleen Wynne, Ontario Minister of Agriculture (and Premier of Ontario), the vision of this current government is to, “…feed local economies…support great jobs and…help our communities grow and thrive.” This quote is in reference to the newly minted Local Food Act. The Local Food Act should be of interest not just to Ontario Farmers but to everyone who loves to eat and who aspires to better their health through diet. For a generation or more, the idea of eating local food has been gaining traction. As a result there has been an explosion in the number of farmers' markets across the province which number in excess of 350. Not only do we have greater access than ever before to more locally grown food, we also have access to information about how to prepare it, store it, present it, and celebrate it. We can thank the ‘slow food’ movement and impassioned community groups for progress enjoyed in recent years evidenced by a growing number of community gardens, allotment gardens, and good oldfashioned backyard gardens. Not to mention an abundance of books, websites, and blogs on the subject of ‘local food’. It only makes sense that the government, with support from opposing parties (as we have a minority provincial government at the moment), would make a commitment to local food at this time. But what does it mean? To get answers I connected with Susan Murray, Senior Communications Advisor to the Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs. Susan, how will this Act support existing farmers' markets and encourage more? The Act will complement the support the ministry already provides to farmers’ markets. In 2008 the government invested $4 million over four years for an Ontario Farmers’ Markets Strategy. Last year the Local Food Fund was announced. It provides up to $30 million over three years to support innovative local food projects that will help celebrate, support and promote Ontario food. I need to point out that the Local Food Act will not actually ‘kick in’ for another year. That is, the Act provides for a lag-time for the ministry to create a strategy that sets out ‘aspirational’ goals and targets with respect to food literacy, local food access, and the use of local food by public sector institu-

Mark Cullen The Green File tions. I looked up ‘food literacy’ as it was not in my lexicon. According to foodliteracy.org it means "the ability to organize one's everyday nutrition in a self-determined, responsible and enjoyable way." I have a feeling Doritos don't make the cut. Dang. Back to the Act.

Who will determine the longrange plan for the $30 million that the Act sets aside for this purpose? We will meet with stakeholders to determine details of those targets, which need to be implemented within on year of proclamation of the Act. There is a provision in the Local Food Act that provides for a nonrefundable tax credit to farmers who donate excess produce to a not-forprofit food distribution organization like a food bank. The limit is 25% of the farmer's gross income. Is the credit available only to ‘farmers’? Can someone with a large crop of, say, apples in the city donate them to a local food bank and be eligible for the credit? According to the Act, donations go to an ‘eligible community food program’, which is defined as a person or entity that is engaged in the distribution of food to the public without charge in Ontario and is a registered charity under the Federal Act. Farmers are defined as those who carry on the business of farming in Ontario. Take this to mean that your donation of zucchini, fresh from your backyard, does not qualify for a provincial tax credit, unless you pay taxes as a farmer. Oh well, I tried. The word ‘promotion’ is oft repeated in the Act and the news release that was sent out in support of it. I asked Susan, “How is communication/education going to take place?”

Have a Happy and Safe New Year from The Napanee Beaver

We are working with stakeholders now to determine details of those targets and how we would communicate them, which need to be implemented within one year of proclamation of the Act. For further clarification I turned to my friend, and perhaps the best authority on the issue in the province, David Cohlmeyer, ‘Sustainable Good Foods Consultant’. In his view, the Local Food Act can only produce good things for farmers and, well, consumers. He points out that local agriculture and food is already the largest contributor to the economy and with some help “could become larger”. The Local Food Act makes provisions for a $30 million investment over 3 years and the Local Food Fund provides for an additional $30 million. It is all a bit confusing, I know. But it is important to know that, between the two Acts, there will be greater access to locally produced food in public hospitals and universities, more local food hubs and distribution points, capacity-building grants to help farmers and processors install tried and true practices that facilitate effective decision-making. If you are a farmer who needs to be guided through the process, David is here to help. If you are a consumer with an interest in gaining greater access to local food and wish to learn more, I recommend his newsletter. You can access it for free by contacting him at dave@davidcohlmeyer.ca. Alternatively, you can access the Act itself and the many electronic links to more information at www.ontario.ca/omafra. Not to be outdone, Tony DiGiovanni, the Executive Director of Landscape Ontario reminds us that, “An act that promotes locally grown food can only help restore the connection between Ontario Agriculture and its residents. What is not well-known is the fact that horticulture [read: gardening] also grow on farms. The farm gate value of landscape and horticulture plants is higher than corn, wheat, soybeans, fruits, and vegetables. This activity produces a value chain comprised of 70,000 private sector jobs, 7 billion dollars in economic activity on less land than traditional crops.” We are going to hear a lot more about the issue of local food. This is not a fad but a trend that is moving upwards with permanence written all over it. Mark Cullen appears on Canada AM every Wednesday morning at 8:40.

Over 200 of these species, however, are currently ‘at risk’. One of the key threats to their survival is habitat loss. Under the Endangered Species Act, 2007, the Government of Ontario has passed habitat regulations for Bogbean Buckmoth, Four-leaved Milkweed, Fowler’s Toad, Laura’s Clubtail, Queensnake and Rusty-patched Bumble Bee and an amendment to the existing habitat provision for Pale-bellied Frost Lichen. These provisions will help protect and recover these plants and animals. The regulations come into force on January 1, 2014. Want to know more about habitat regulations or the Endangered Species Act? Information on the regulations is available on the Environmental Registry of the Environmental Bill of Rights website at ontario.ca/ebr (Registry #011-9021) and on the Species at Risk website at ontario.ca/speciesatrisk.

PURPOSE OF THE ZONING BY-LAW AMENDMENT

An application was received from 1622273 Ontario Inc. to rezone lands located on the east side of Pleasant Drive and east of County Road 41. The land is also the subject of a concurrent severance application (PL CON 2013 034).

The subject lands are designated Rural. The parcel is zoned Hamlet Commercial Exception One (C1-1) and Rural (RU). A concurrent lot addition will add your (4) hectares (9.9 acres) to the existing parcel containing the sales barn. The resulting parcel of land being rezoned is approximately 5.93 hectares (14.7 acres). The retained parcel is within the Rural (RU) and Development (D) zones. The portion of the retained parcel in the D zone will be placed in the Rural (RU) zone. The purpose of the zoning amendment is to change the uses on the site in order to permit such uses as: • Feed mill • Grain storage • Seed cleaning and sales • Sale of grains and related products • Liquid fertilizer storage and sales • Sale of agricultural equipment • Auction/sales barn

The application seeks to place the site in a site specific Rural Industrial Zone (M3) zone category. EFFECT OF THE ZONING BY-LAW REQUEST

The requested zone amendment will change the uses permitted on the subject site in order to implement the above request. In addition, the portion of the retained lot in the D zone will be placed in the RU zone. LOCATION OF PROPERTY

The subject site is located as shown on the attached key map. The property is located in lot 22, Concession 4 in the geographic Township of Richmond. The site is described as Part 1 on Plan of Survey 29R-3866 and is part of part 1 on plan of survey 29R-8537.

Locals charged in Loyalist robbery Beaver Sports

A pair of Napanee teens and one Deseronto man are facing charges stemming from a Nov. 21 armed robbery at Belleville’s Loyalist College. Napanee’s Evan Sinclair and Tyson Stevenson, both 18, were charged with two counts of using a firearm during an indictable offence and one count of conspiracy to commit robbery as well as break and enter, wearing a disguise during an indictable offence, possession of a dangerous weapon and possession for the purposes of trafficking. Kurtis Lloyd, a 22-yearold from Deseronto, was charged with two counts of possession of a dangerous weapon in connection to

the crime. Tactical officers went to five homes in the Napanee and Deseronto area last Thursday to apprehend the suspects. Also charged in connection with the crime was 18year-old Braedon Couvreur of Belleville. He’s facing two counts of using a firearm during an indictable offence and one count of conspiracy to commit robbery. Police say on Nov. 21 several men believed to be carrying firearms entered a residence on the Belleville campus and robbed several occupants before fleeing on foot. At press time all four were being held and awaiting a Belleville court bail hearing later this month.

Strathcona Paper hit with $50,000 fine Beaver Staff

he Strathcona Paper GP Inc. has been fined $50,000 after an employee suffered an injury on the job. After violating the Occupational Health and Safety Act, the plant was fined $50,000 after an employee was injured. The incident occurred on March 13 when paper threaded onto the drying drums came apart and needed to be removed from the drums. “One worker saw some paper near a pulley, which was on the other side of a removable guard. The worker removed the guard and reached for the paper. As the worker did so, a telescoping fiberglass pole that was part of the work-

T

er’s equipment became caught in the pulley and struck the worker, causing lacerations to the throat and armpit,” a press release from the Ministry of Labour states. The Strathcona Paper GP Inc. pleaded guilty to failing to ensure moving equipment may endanger an employee and that the plant was not properly equipped with and guard to prevent access to the moving part. Justice of the Peace Jack Chiang set the charge for the Strathcona Paper plant. The court also imposed a 25 per cent victim fine surcharge, as required by the Provincial Offences Act, which is credited to a special provincial government fund to assist victims of crime.

BY ASHLEY ESPINOZA Staff Reporter

Tyler Romain is a member of the Napanee Raiders. Though this is his first year in Junior C, he’s had no trouble adjusting. He was the Raiders’ top scorer in the 2013 portion of this year’s schedule, potting 18 goals and adding 13 assists. His 31 points lead the team. He’ll be counted on heavily as they push for the playoffs.

Though it may look and feel like winter, OPP are cautioning snowmobile motorists to stay off early ice and remind drivers that ice can be unpredictable. Ontario Provincial Police and the Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs say ice depths change daily and even hourly and caution those on snowmobiles to test all ice before travelling. The OFSC has said this year has been especially dangerous, as ice has formed earlier than usual and though many lakes or ponds look safe, the ice is not yet thick or strong enough. Changing weather also weakens ice, and with cold and warming temperatures, the OPP and OFSC say drivers should not travel on ice. “This ice warning also applies during any prolonged period of thaw or rain, and late in the season after ice begins to deteriorate from milder temperatures,” a press release from the OPP and OFSC stated. If snowmobile drivers must travel across ice, The OPP and OFSC has given a number of tips to ensure risk can be reduced. They encourage all drivers to check the ice thick-

such as rocks, stumps, docks, ice roads and fishing huts, as ice depths can be unpredictable in these locations. “To avoid unnecessary risks, the OPP and OFSC recommend that snowmobilers stick to available, land-based, OFSC Prescribed Trails whenever possible. OFSC clubs provide many trails that avoid water crossings altogether and also provide many bridges and culverts to pass over known water crossings safely,” the press release states. The OPP and OFSC also encourage drivers to use buoyant snowmobile suits and carry ice picks. “If you do make the personal choice to take the risk of travelling on ice by snowmobile, wait until a marked stake line is in place and cross only when

RALPH HENDERSON

Ralph, it has been a year since you went to be with the Lord and we miss you so very much. We have had two precious little great granddaughters since you went. We love them and so would you! It is a comfort to know where you are, because Jesus said in John 14: “In my Father’s house are many mansions, if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. I will come again and receive you unto myself that where I am you will be also.” So on January 1, 2013, He came for you. You are greatly missed.. Love from your wife Louise and family

KENNEDY - In loving memory of our parents, Cecil, September 16, 1998; Fern, December 24, 2007 and our sister Alfreda, December 7, 1937. A Christmas Tribute. It’s Christmas once again, There is an emptiness we feel, Although your voices have been stilled, You are heard through the memories of your family, As each one walks through the door, A part of you comes with them, One may have your smile, One your sense of humour, With all these treasured things, Your presence feels so real. We will love, laugh, live, hug and remember. Missing you, Clarence, Rose Marie, Robert, Winona and their families. McGUINNESS - In memory of Rosalyn, December 24, 1998. Dear Mom. If I could write a story, it would be the greatest ever told Of a kind and loving Mother, who had a heart of gold, I could write and write, but still won’t be able to say it all, Especially how much we love and miss you each winter, spring, summer and fall, Even after 15 years, it will be on Christmas Eve, Our many memories of you are as strong as they can be, So Mom until we meet again, I will cherish all my thoughts of you, I try and think of the happy ones, so this time of year is not so blue. Love you always, your daughter Leona, son-in-law Brian and grandchildren Danielle and Brent Risto.

LIBRA (Sept 23/Oct 23) Some added confidence is all you need to get back on the right track, Libra. Things are bound to work out in your favor, especially when you put your mind to something. SCORPIO (Oct 24/Nov 22) Scorpio, just when skepticism seems to be taking over, you will discover once in a while there are a few surprises with happy endings. Enjoy your good luck. SAGITTARIUS (Nov 23/Dec 21) Sagittarius, though unusual, your behavior might seem perfectly reasonable to you. But unless you share your thoughts with others, they may wonder what is going on. CAPRICORN (Dec 22/Jan 20) Remember that words said in the heat of the moment will not soon be forgotten, Capricorn. Don't forget to employ some tact when discussing serious matters with loved ones. AQUARIUS (Jan 21/Feb 18) Aquarius, this week you will have to be very convincing if you want plans to go your way. Brush up on your approach and give thought to exactly what it is you want to say. PISCES (Feb 19/Mar 20) Take a few days to let your mind wander, Pisces. You will probably find being a free spirit to be a refreshing break from the norm.

H O R O S C O P E S

ARIES (Mar 21/Apr 20) Aries, some difficulty awaits you, but you are strong and fully capable of handling what's coming your way. Maintain your composure and stick it out a little longer. TAURUS (Apr 21/May 21) Taurus, this is your week to shine and let everyone at work know just how talented and devoted you are to the team. Enjoy the fanfare while you can get it. GEMINI (May 22/Jun 21) Distractions are lurking, Gemini, but you will still manage to get things done. Somehow you find the focus needed to muddle through all the work. CANCER (Jun 22/Jul 22) Trust someone close to you with a few of your secrets, Cancer. Holding them in may only cause you grief in the long run. Don't worry, your confidante will be supportive.
