Looking to honour a hometown soldier who made the ultimate sacrifice, Napanee Legion Branch 137 is appealing to Greater Napanee council to name a street after Sgt. Jason Boyes, a Napanee native who was killed in Afghanistan almost a decade ago. Council agreed to accept the suggestion and requested staff review the town’s street naming policy. “I really respect the request, I wonder if we can make a part of that review any parks or boulevards,” said councillor Shaune Lucas. “I know we just created some more park space at the corner of Bridge Street and Belleville Road. In addition to the street, maybe we could dedicate a statue or something appropriate for a new pocket of land.” Mayor Gord Schermerhorn was also supportive of the idea but was hesitant to single out a particular road that would be re-named. “I’m sure we’re going to look at those options,” the mayor said in response to Lucas.

Police Report

NACHC telemedicine takes next step With new space, health centre has greater capacity to serve local patients

BY SETH DUCHENE Editor

Complex medical needs often require visits to specialists outside of the immediate area, and therefore require costly and time-consuming trips to other centres. Thanks to the advent of telemedicine, however, many of those trips can be avoided. That’s where the Napanee and Area Community Health Centre comes in. Although the NACHC has offered telemedicine — where doctors can connect with patients over a secure video link — for about three years now, its new space on

Dundas Street W. allows the program to support more patients. “People who use it, love it… and once people start using it, we have very good buy-in,” says Anthony Moscar, Manager of the NACHC and the Salmon River Health Link. “Who wouldn’t want to be able to have better access to health care and to programs? We have this new site now, so we can accommodate more (usage). This is the perfect time to reach out and be able to share that we can take on more at this point.” Doctors can also make use of basic diagnostic equipment during appointments. “We have a stethoscope that’s Bluetoothed, so

we could do heart and lung sounds,” NACHC clinical telemedicine nurse Pamela Dunstan says. “We’ve done a lot of pre-operative appointments for patients who are having surgery in Toronto, which allows the doctor to listen to their heart and lungs.” She also says that they have a specialized camera to allow a doctor to get a closer look at an airway or a wound. Dunstan said that she knew how advantageous telemedicine could be after her very first appointment using the system, where she helped to connect a family with a young child to a specialist at Sick Kids Hospital in Toronto. “The parents obviously had to take the day off work and take the child out of school and day care,” she said. “They came in, we connected with Sick Kids, and everything was great. There were no issues. They knew how to contact them if there were any problems. The actual appointment was seven minutes. I

can’t imagine for a family, having to drive to Toronto, find parking, get a meal, wait… (all) for seven minutes.” The telemedicine system isn’t just for remote doctor/patient interaction, either. The NACHC is offering a series of new group programs that are run out of the Kingston Community Health Centre but connected to other telemedicine sites, including Napanee. One such program is an ‘Exercise for Chronic Pain’ session, which takes place every Monday at the NACHC until March 27 (no classes this Monday or March 3). The other is a ‘Keep Well’ program for those 55 and older, designed to help them get active, meet friends and have fun. Those sessions take place on Tuesdays and Fridays at the NACHC from 10-11 a.m. For more information on either program, call Pamela at 613-876-2729. These programs — as with all telemedicine services — are free to anyone with

an Ontario Health Card. “There are many services that we provide specific to clients of the Community Health Centre. This, through telemedicine, as well as the programs that are offered with telemedicine, are open to everyone. You don’t have to be a patient of the Community Health Centre, and that’s what we’re trying to get out there,” said Moscar. Dunstan says that while many doctors are aware of telemedicine as an option for patients requiring trips to see specialists, it’s often not top-of-mind. As such, she says the NACHC is also trying to build awareness among the public about telemedicine. “A lot of times we find that the patient needs to advocate for themselves, because the doctor may not be aware of it, or even if they are aware of it, it’s not their ‘go to,’” she says. “They do a referral and they do it the way they’ve always done it. They send it off, but they’re not thinking, ‘Oh yeah, I can do this by telemedicine, it might be better for the patient.’”

COFFEE N’ CHAT… Taking place at the Deseronto Library every Monday and Wednesday at 2 p.m. We invite you for coffee and tea to chat with friends, play a game of cards, meet new people, and learn something new. Call 613-396-2744.

Man arrested after police chase Beaver Staff

A Brampton man is facing a series of charges after allegedly leading Napanee OPP on a pursuit on the weekend. On Saturday at 10:51 a.m. officers with the Napanee OPP responded to complaints of a vehicle driving erratically in the eastbound lanes of Highway 401. It was determined through investigation the vehicle was stolen from the Brampton area and OPP officers in Tweed had attempted to stop the vehicle earlier that morning. The vehicle had failed to stop for police. Police say they located the suspect vehicle travelling eastbound at Palace Road and attempted to stop the vehicle when the driver again fled from the officers. The OPP got the vehicle stopped north of Napanee on Hwy. 41 at Goodyear Road. The driver, a 24-year-old man from Brampton, was arrested and transported to the Napanee OPP detachment for breath tests. The driver has been charged with: flight while being pursued by police; dangerous operation of a motor vehicle; possession of property obtained by crime; driving a motor vehicle while impaired; driving with more than the legal limit of alcohol in his system; driving while disqualified (two counts); driving while under suspension (two counts); driving with open alcohol; and breach of probation (two counts).

Greater Napanee

Council weighs in on federal payroll snafu

BY ADAM PRUDHOMME Staff Reporter

Following the lead put forth by the city of Kingston, Greater Napanee Council has thrown its support behind imploring the Canadian government to establish a regional pay centre for federal employees. The request stems from the fallout of the much maligned Phoenix pay system, which has had well-publicized technical difficulties, causing thousands of federal employees to not receive payment or be underpaid, with some being overpaid. Greater Napanee council voted to throw their support behind the motion on Tuesday in an effort to help alleviate some of the local headaches caused by the Phoenix pay system. “The situation is awful, it’s terrible,� said councillor Roger Cole. “How tough is it to not be paid for a year or two?� As of last month, some 8,000 federal employees across Canada were in a backlog as the government

NEWS / 3

B E AV E R

attempted to sort through the technical issues. Locally there are 7,000 public servants employed in Kingston who reside in the surrounding community, including Napanee. Council voted to adopt Cole’s motion which was to receive and endorse the recommendation put forth by Kingston City Council, which was to request the Federal Government of Canada use whatever means to correct the payment situation, including considering a regional pay centre. The locally established centre would allow workers to talk in person with a representative. MP for Kingston and the Islands Mark Gerretsen doubled down on the suggestion last week, promising to open a centre that would specifically deal with federal correctional workers and CFB Kingston employees. Recently protesters have taken to picketing outside the MP’s office in hopes of spurring a solution to the payroll problem, which dates back to February 2016.

Salt for sidewalk properties? BY ADAM PRUDHOMME Staff Reporter

Borrowing an idea from some neighbouring municipalities, Greater Napanee councillor Shaune Lucas proposed forming a partnership with homeowners to help keep sidewalks clear in the winter. Pointing to a program in Oshawa, Lucas suggested the town explore the option of providing salt for residents whose property is fronted by a sidewalk. “There are some municipalities that are in partnership

with residents,� said Lucas. “Basically it’s a matter of providing people with sand or salt for free or at cost.� Lucas says the town could provide a container for residents to collect the salt from the town. Deputy-mayor Marg Isbester also noted that the City of Belleville has a similar program. Lucas brought up the idea during the new business section of Tuesday’s regular council meeting and advised staff he would like to explore the idea more tonight during the scheduled budget meeting. In the

meantime he planned to call Oshawa and Belleville city staff to get the details on their programs. “Falls and slips are a serious thing and we’re trying to do our best for the sidewalks,� said Lucas. Tonight’s budget meeting, which gets underway at 7 p.m. at town hall, will be the second meeting on the 2017 budget. Council is expected to review last year’s budget and see how it compares to this year’s, as well as look at policing, municipal grants and the operating and capital budgets.

STREET | Proposal to be reviewed by staff CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 “I agree with naming something after this gentleman because I actually knew this boy. I don’t know if we’re going to change Mill Street (the street the Legion is located on) at this time because that street has been so

long in this municipality.� Town staff will get back to council once their review the policy and it will go forward from there with possible suggestions. A member of the 2nd Battalion, Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry, Sgt. Boyes was

killed by an explosive device while on his third tour in Afghanistan in 2008. At the time of his death he was hailed by his commanding officers and then Prime Minister Stephen Harper for his leadership and dedication to his job and country. He was 32 years old.

Andy Forgie to bring pop music oldies to museum BY ADAM PRUDHOMME Staff Reporter

Andy Forgie will harken back to pop music’s golden age when he brings his guitar and singing voice to the Lennox and Addington County Museum on Tuesday. His one man show titled ‘They Don’t Write ‘Em Like This Anymore’ will see Forgie perform unplugged acoustic versions of timeless hits from the likes of The Beatles, Simon and Garfunkle, Bob Dylan, Cat Stevens, James Taylor, Harry Chapin and more. “It was the era of the singer-songwriter,” Forgie says of the music he plays at his show. “Although musicians had been writing their own songs prior to The Beatles, such as Buddy Holly, Chuck Berry and people of that nature, the real explosion for the singer-songwriter seemed to happen with The Beatles. After The Beatles came on the scene it just seemed like the floodgates opened. Prior to them

there was sort of two camps, there were singers and songwriters. That whole era is really what I’m celebrating.” His catalogue focusses on the songs that have stood the test of time largely in part to their powerful lyrics. “I think every art form had its renaissance period,” said Forgie. “Whether it be literature, the fine arts, sculpting, painting, architecture, there’s a certain era that for whatever reason tends to rise above other eras and have a real staying power.” Because of that timelessness, he says his show has a broad appeal. “These are the songs that have woven themselves into our subconscious,” he said. “It’s really neat because it’s one thing for my generation who enjoys these songs because there’s a certain nostalgia attached to them, but it’s just as neat when I see high school students digging Bob Dylan or Gordon Lightfoot or The Beatles. It’s cool and makes me think they must have

been onto something.” With nearly 50 years experience in the business Forgie has travelled the world with his guitar. When not doing solo shows he can be found on tour with ‘All You Need Is Love’, which pays tribute to The Beatles. Admission to his Tuesday Night at the Museum show is $3 which can be paid at the door. The show will also coincide with the launch of three new exhibits at the Museum, which celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday. They include People and Places of Napanee, which showcases Stephen Benson’s 1860 photographic collection, Crinolines and Confederation: Gigantic Gowns and Nationalism 1856-1870 and Hippie and the Hipster. The last two exhibits focus on 150 years of fashion in Canada with present day ensembles put together with the help of the staff at Starlet Boutique. The exhibits are curated by Diane Gallinger of Jordan Heritage Resources. Forgie’s performance will get underway at 7 p.m.

First meeting good and boring There was a lot of build-up to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s first meeting with new U.S. President Donald Trump earlier this week. It’s easy to understand why. There was much at stake, not the least of which was the trading relationship between the two countries — something which has been brought into question since Trump’s election and the installation of a more protectionist administration in Washington. Any radical moves by the U.S., and Canada would feel the (perhaps devastating) effects. Further, there was much to suggest that the two men wouldn’t get along. At all. In so many ways and on so many issues — from immigration to the environment — Trudeau is Trump’s polar opposite. And, given some of Trump’s early diplomatic adventures, such as alienating Australia and China, the new president’s unpredictability made for a, well, unpredictable first encounter with Canada’s prime minister. When the dust settled at the end of the day on Monday, however, the whole thing turned out to be a dud — for those seeking high drama, anyway. Both men were positively diplomatic, despite clear differences. Trudeau looked confident, competent and comfortable. Trump showed none of the bluster for which he’s become famous (and perhaps given the other crises facing the White House of late, it could be because he had more urgent issues on his mind). In front of the cameras there was little to suggest the PM and the president couldn’t work together in the future. Good and boring — that was what we were hoping for, and that’s what we got. Despite his earlier protectionist rhetoric, Trump gave little indication he planned on messing with the U.S.-Canada trading relationship at all. That’s good. The two men didn’t stumble on their philosophical differences and found common ground. That’s good. That didn’t stop some from suggesting that Trudeau should have been more aggressive on a variety of issues, and that the prime minister was putting pragmatism ahead of principle. We agree with Trudeau, however, when he said during his joint press conference with Trump that it wouldn’t serve Canadian interests for him to lecture Trump and the U.S. on how they run their affairs. We’re sure Canadians wouldn’t much appreciate getting a lecture from Trump on how we should run our affairs, either. More to the point, it wouldn’t have done any good. Not only would Trump dig in his heels, he’d be more apt to become aggressive and intransigent on things like trade, and sour our relationship with the Americans for the foreseeable future. In this very unstable climate, Trudeau was aiming for some semblance of stability. On that score, his first meeting with Trump was successful — as boring and as anticlimactic as it may have been.

Letter to the Editor

Women’s Institute marks a milestone This Sunday marks the 120th anniversary of the founding of the Women’s Institute in 1897. This historic organization began in Stoney Creek, Ontario. It spread throughout the province as the Federated Women’s Institutes of Ontario, across Canada as the Federated Women’s Institutes of Canada and around the world as the Associated Country Women of the World. It is the first and largest women’s organization in the world with nine million members in over 70 countries. You may ask, what’s so important about Women’s Institute? We are first and foremost an education group. Our co-founders Adelaide Hunter Hoodless and Erland Lee realized 120 years ago that rural women needed to be educated about homemaking and child care. Adelaide’s

tireless efforts established home economics courses in public schools, high schools and universities. Through the network of branches, of which there are six in Lennox and Addington District, WI continues to offer many various programs to teach quilting and other crafts, back-tobasics cooking and baking, fitness, self-defence, women’s health issues; the list goes on. WI has had a positive impact on the lives of countless women and their families and communities by advocating for social, environmental and economic change. Our lobbying efforts and resolutions at all levels of government have resulted in many positive changes including the pasteurization of milk, safety arms on school buses and mandatory stopping of vehicles in both direc-

tions, signs at railway crossings, best-before dates on food products, promotion of healthy food choices in schools and care instruction labels in clothing.

Letter to the Editor

School board should resist provincial policy Recently the Yarker Family School has been the object of a Pupil Accommodation Review — in other words the Limestone District School Board wants to close the school and eventually all schools in Stone Mills Township. In the study by their American consultants, no significance is given to the educational, mental or physical effects of increased busing nor to the increased exposure of the kids to diesel fumes, longer days, bullying, accidents or the additional release of carbon dioxide. They fail to mention that, in most cases, the kids will be removed from excellent schools to larger, poorer performing, less caring schools. Guidelines for the PAR process are dictated by the province. Premier Kathleen Wynne says in a letter to the author: “…these guidelines ensure that school boards undergo a transparent, open consultation process with parents and the community (my emphasis) before making final accommodation decisions about a school or a group of schools.” Community members have been stonewalled forcing people to file (as yet unanswered) Freedom of Information requests to get information about school maintenance and who tendered bids on the consultant study. School teachers, bus drivers and trustees have been told by board not to talk to

the public — so much for the Premier’s transparency. The fact that trustees have been restricted from talking to the public is disgraceful. Can you imagine calling your local municipal councilor about an issue and they tell you that their staff told them not to talk to you? The board insists that the public consultation must go exclusively through the PAR committee — a group of volunteer parents most of whom are very busy with work and children and have little time or resources for analyzing school closure issues. The board is guiltless — the province makes the guidelines. The province is guiltless because it’s all up to the local boards. What a shell game and the kids are the losers. The PAR process has never led to a school not being closed, so one must conclude that it is just a complete disgraceful sham. Here’s what a citizen inquiring about a petition to keep the Yarker school open was told by a board employee: “Petitions won’t make any difference. We could get a 1,000 signatures and the board won’t look at it… it would be better for every parent (my emphasis) to e-mail her specifically their own comments and concerns and she would review them and create a report to present to the board. She said the trustees won’t read our

emails.” Does this seem like an open consultation with the community, Premier Wynne? What is infuriating about closing rural schools is that the savings are small, the impact on rural Ontario is severe and yet the Ministry of Education is funding new schools in urban areas leading to even more empty spaces. Why not maintain existing schools and re-arrange catchment areas to make best use of existing schools? The Yarker Family School is only one school of 600 schools the province plans to close across rural Ontario. This seems so short-sighted — young couples won’t move to a small community if their kids have to be bussed excessive distances. House builders will suffer, store businesses, services and church attendance will decline. Property values will drop and taxes will go up to support a declining tax base. Is this the future we want for rural Ontario? Limestone school board employees and trustees should have the integrity to resist irresponsible and cynical policy guidelines and insist that our rural schools be kept open until the province develops a responsible rural schools policy. S.R. Knowles, Yarker

Letter to the Editor

Why not plant trees and feed the birds? I never thought that I might be feeding the birds by planting trees. Oh, I’ve had a bird feeder providing seeds summer and winter ever since my wife Doris and I built our house years ago. Then we began planting trees mostly because they would beautify our small acreage and benefit the environment. Some of those trees were ash, soft maple, cedars and more were mountain ash with a flowering crab later on. Within a few years the mountain ash wore a crop of

pretty red berries so that a few tobins and starlings made of them a meal. The mountain ash near a patio door grew to 30 feet with others not quite so vigorous. This year their branches were heavy with red fruit, clustered like flowers even into the cold of winter. First came a flock of cedar waxwings to the nearest tree where we could watch. Their crowns would flatten as they feasted but soon they flew off. Perhaps it was hunger that brought the

them back a couple of times. A few weeks later a huge flock of robins flew over the trees with a few dozen dropping by to feed on the red berries of a mountain ash. Within a week or so they stripped the one tree, then fed on the others nearby hardly leaving a berry. At about the same time they discovered the flowering crab with its thousands of miniscule fruit so that nothing remains now except branches. How I loved to see the birds get a meal.

I hope those readers, who have some land or a bit of a lot with their house, will plant trees — lots of trees — to feed the birds. Those trees we planted were not to benefit the birds but somehow they fit into the overall planning of nature to provide food for these wonderful creatures. So this spring plant some trees just for the birds. As you work with your shovel, don’t forget to plant some mountain ash! Roy C. Kenny, Napanee

A trip through the pages of The Napanee Beaver 65 Years Ago February 13, 1952 ■ The Town of Napanee proclaimed Feb. 15 to be a Day of Mourning following the death of King George VI. All businesses within the municipality were being asked to close for the day, and residents were asked to mark the day. A series of memorial services were being planned at a number of Napanee and area churches. At the request of the Ontario Minister of Education W.J. Dunlop, all schools were also asked to shut down for the day. Memorial services were to be held at local schools on Feb. 14. ■ Although her coronation was indefinitely delayed, the former Princess Elizabeth immediately assumed the role of monarch. Elizabeth was proclaimed as Queen shortly after her return from Kenya, where she and Prince Philip had been conducting an official visit at the time of her father’s death. Prince Charles, the three-year-old son of Elizabeth and Philip, was named the official successor to the throne. Few could have predicted at the time of her birth in 1926 to the then Duke and Duchess of York that she would have ultimately ascend to the monarchy.

35 Years Ago February 17, 1982 ■ In one of his last acts before being shuffled out of his portfolio, outgoing Ontario Health Minister Dennis Timbrell announced that the L&A County General Hospital would be given the go-ahead for a $4.5 million expansion. Timbrell was moved from the Health portfolio to Agriculture shortly after the announcement. The expansion would provide additional emergency, outpatient, radiology and laboratory facilities. Construction was expected to begin as soon as final working drawing and specifications were completed and approved. ■ With news of a gypsy moth infestation in Lennox and Addington County forests, particularly in the northern end of L&A, public officials found that they had precious little time before deciding how to proceed with a spraying program to fight the destructive insect. It appeared as though the Ministry of Natural Resources would be moving ahead with spraying on Crown land. The cost of that spraying would be covered by the provincial government. Some municipalities were entertaining the idea of holding public meetings on the issue.

Members of Community Living Lennox and Addington were invited to stay for a celebration after their recent bi-weekly work at the Royal Canadian Legion, L.Col. Harry Babcock Branch 137 in Napanee. The diverse group of men and women has been offering their cleaning services the branch since the mid1990s, as they have at other locations in Greater Napanee. Branch President Chris Ingersoll says he’s been in the branch on most Fridays and have been able to watch the group at work, adding that “they bring smiles to our Friday lunch bunch who prepare the weekly meals. We are fortunate to have them with us.” They were given certificates of appreciation for their contribution to the continued upkeep of the branch.

Business pitch contest comes to L&A BY SETH DUCHENE Editor

Do you have a great business idea that you’re itching to present to the world? If so, an upcoming contest presented by Start-Up Bay of Quinte and Lennox and Addington County might give you the stage you’re looking for. There might be $1,000 in it for you, too. “Basically, anyone — it doesn’t matter if you have a business now or if you’re thinking about a business in the future — can submit an application online and it’ll be judged,” says L&A County Director of Community and Development Services Stephen Paul. “We’re looking at six of those applications coming forward (from those initial online applications) for an event in May, where one of those business ideas has a chance to win $1,000.” 3.

Metro Creative Graphics LAST WEEK’S ANSWER

In the process, they’ll also be presenting their ideas to potential investors, as well as get feedback on how to push the idea forward. The deadline to submit ideas is next Wednesday. The ‘pitch night’ will be held at the L&A County on May 3. Paul says that ‘pitch night’ — which will see presenters give a five-minute pitch on their idea to a panel of judges — is similar in format to the popular CBC reality television series Dragon’s Den. “There will be some representatives from Start-Up Bay of Quinte and from L&A County as well,” said Paul. He said that Start-Up Bay of Quinte (which is part of Start-Up Canada, an organization which looks to develop entrepreneurship across the country) approached L&A with the idea. “It was a great partnership and a great opportunity to get dollars and possible new busi-

ness in L&A,” said Paul. Paul says it takes about 10 minutes to fill out the online application. “(Would-be contestants) provide a little bit of information about what your business idea might be, what you’d be looking to pitch, and from there those ideas will be judged,” he said. “Basically, (judges are) looking at what your product will be; is there a problem that it’s going to be solving?

Staff Picks: William and Catherine Kristin Maloney, long-time staff member at the County Libraries, recently enjoyed William and Catherine: Their Story by Andrew Morton. “Since the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge wrapped up their second official royal tour of Canada last fall, I thought it would be a perfect time to read another book about the highly popuColes lar royal couple,” says Kristin. “Browsing through our collection on the royal family here at the Napanee branch library, the beaming photograph of Prince William and Kate leaving Westminster Abbey on their wedding day sparkling on the front cover captivated me instantaneously! If you are looking for a classy read about this attractive royal couple, I would definitely suggest this book by Andrew Morton. The acclaimed biographer brings a unique insight to this portrait of the bride and groom, which starts with their family backgrounds, leading to childhood tales and through the early days of their relation-

ship at university, until the moment they walked down the aisle. What makes this particular book meaningful and memorable, are the dozens of beautiful photos within its pages that truly bring the love story of Will and Kate to life. For those of you who can’t get enough of this stylish couple, these images will have you flipping through these pages Notes over and over again, relishing in the colourful portraits.” “This book highlights how this marriage was one of the most significant royal events we will witness in our lifetime,” Kristin adds. “The wedding marked a new chapter in not only the lives of William and Catherine, but of the Royal Family, as well as the meaning of the monarchy and their influence around the world. In this book, Andrew Morton clearly presents how the union of these two young people in love, who are now the most celebrated royal couple on Earth, are bringing the monarchy with them into the present globally, using their celebrity status

Backyard style trends With this latest snowfall this past weekend, it may seem like spring will never get here! I’ve already been planning what to do once this snow has melted and the warmer days are upon us. I have quite a few family members visiting this summer from the Netherlands, and there is a little bit of competitiveness between my father and brother in terms of who has a better vegetable garden and in making an impression on my visiting family. I have flower planter ideas ready to be planted and old kitchen chairs that will get a good coat of outside paint to be placed in front of our chicken coop. I’m still trying to convince my husband that a pergola would look amazing on our back patio with grapevines growing atop. I think my convincing may work in my favour by summer’s arrival.

Artist David Dossett poses with his ice painting that is currently on display at The Waterfront Pub and Terrace patio. Dossett’s landscape was originally painted on transparent plastic, then frozen inside a 300pound block of ice; the display is also enhanced with backlighting. While Dossett has been exhibiting this unique form of artwork along with other artists in Kingston through Froid D’Art, he brought his work to Napanee this winter to pay tribute to active local artist and former Napanee and District Chamber of Commerce Manager B.J. McDonald, who passed away last year. Dossett said McDonald eagerly supported Froid D’Art, and displayed his own frozen work in Napanee last winter.

The long history of ‘Love Me Tender’ The mere mention of the 1956 song, ‘Love Me Tender’, immediately prompts flashbacks of Elvis Presley. More than the name of the composers of either the melody or the lyrics of this soothing romantic serenade, the controversial soloist is front and centre. It is redundant to reminisce concerning ‘the King’s’ rise to fame. The first vocalist to take the lead in what was originally tagged as ‘rock and roll’, he became the catalyst of this totally new music form — a genre which changed the face of music forever. It was not his songs themselves, but his acrobatic gyrations which were deemed suggestive and indecent to society which was used to Frank Sinatra and Tony Bennett

as the yardstick by which popular music was measured. Strangely enough, his first recording, ‘My Happiness’, was nothing like his first hit, ‘Heartbreak Hotel’. All the qualities which separated him from conventional performers burst forth in the latter number. But it was ‘You’re Nothing but a Hound Dog’, which really opened the floodgates to his fame. In the same vein he followed with ‘Blue Suade Shoes’, ‘All Shook Up’, and ‘Don’t be Cruel’. The style of ‘Love Me Tender’ was poles apart Musical from what had, by the mid1950s, launched him into Memories stardom. It was described as “his first-ever non-rock bal- theme and title for a movie lad”. In 1956, film director in place. Music Director Ken Rob Webb already had the Darby had chosen the

melody, but he yet lacked appropriate lyrics. The tune was none other than the 95-year-old ‘Aura Lee’, composed by British native George Poulton in 1861. It was a simple sentimental ballad about a beautiful young woman with shining hair. Initially it was a minstrel number, but quickly caught on with the soldiers in training at West Point. Its popularity and connection with military personal made it a natural among soldiers on both sides of the U.S. civil conflict. One historian tagged it: “…it gave them a happy light thought to focus on dealing with the dangers of war…… hope and motivation to back home to their wives.” It was fitting, then, that the setting for the movie should be of the struggles of a family whose elder three sons joined the Confederate Army. The fourth brother,

the youngest, remained home, and, with news that his eldest sibling had been killed in battle, married the latter’s finance. While Darby dug back in time for the melody, it was his wife who re-wrote the lyrics. In a way, it was like connecting a brigadier general with a boy scout. ‘Aura Lee’ was rich in decades of historical status, while these new words, as warm and romantic as they were, were also extremely simplistic, almost to the point of being mundane. While the film was wellreceived, the song far outclassed the movie. Very quickly it became a top Billboard single, remaining number one for five weeks and staying on the charts for twenty three weeks. It morphed into a crossover favourite, rising on the country music charts as well. No less than 45 well-

known artists recorded the piece, including Nat King Cole, Connie Francis, the Platters, B.J. Thomas, Pat Boone, Dean Martin, and Barbara Streisand. Marty Robbins and Linda Ronstadt represented those in the country music field to follow suit. Love me tender, love me sweet, Never let me go. You have made my life complete, And I love you so. Love me tender, love me true; All my dreams fulfilled. For my darling I love you And I always will. Love me tender, love me long. Take me to your heart. For it’s there where I belong, And we’ll never part.

Canary in the coal mine Consider this: One in four Canadians buy bird food and/or consume ‘birding’ products. The average amount spent is $1,000 per year. If that sounds crazy, count me as one of the crazy ones. With 14 feeding stations on my property, I spend a lot of time and money providing sustenance to my local bird population. Most Canadian bird lovers live with the fantasy that we feed them to help the little darlings along the way. They need us. Not true. If all of us hung up our feeders in the garage and stopped feeding the local bird population they would be fine. We feed them to bring them to us: they are our entertainment. In Decline However, the part about them ‘being just fine’ is not accurate. According to Bird Studies Canada, the countries foremost authority on the subject, our bird population is anything but ‘fine’. There are many bird species in decline. The population of eastern meadowlarks, chimney swifts, barn swallows and nighthawks are all in trouble, if the numbers mean anything. Across Canada, four bird species in 10 are in some form of longterm decline, some of them quite seriously. “When bird populations change so profoundly, we are seeing a clear sign of environmental

What can I do? You can help to build a database of information about birds and the bird population by joining the Great Backyard Bird Count, Feb. 17 to 20, 2017. Take 15 minutes per day (or more) to count the birds and species in your yard or community (you can take a walk through a local park or conservation area if you like, don’t restrict yourself to your ‘backyard’). Report the numbers that you record on the Bird Studies Canada website. This information is aggregated across the country, as it has been for many years. With these numbers, BSC can determine the increase or decline of bird populations across the country.

Project Feeder Watch Another great way to get engaged and help is to count the birds on your feeder and report them to BSC on their website. Project Feeder Watch was instigated by Bird Studies Canada in 1976. Through a partnership with Cornell Lab of Ornithology as their U.S. partner, they have expanded the program to cover the entire continent. The program occurs from November through April (so there is no better time to get started than now). For details of both programs visit www.birdscanada.org. By the numbers: ■ $5 billion – the value of equipment, feed/seed, supplies, vacations and other items related to amateur

birding in North America per year. ■ 50 million — the number of birdwatchers in North America ■ Nine out of 10 birders are ‘backyard’ birders vs. wilderness birders ■ 25 per cent of all Canadians buy bird products and feed wild birds (Stats courtesy Bird Studies Canada) Mark Cullen is an expert gardener, member of the Order of Canada, author and broadcaster.

Hawks debut alpine ski team Pair of NDSS skiers take part in EOSSAA

BY ADAM PRUDHOMME Staff Reporter

or the first time in school history, the NDSS Golden Hawks took to the hills, taking part in this year’s KASSAA’s alpine skiing season. After a strong showing at the Feb. 8 KASSAA championship, the Hawks saw two of its Level 2 skiers, Malcolm Isbester and Jaxon Starbuck, qualify for EOSSAA, which was held Tuesday at Calabogie Ski Hill. Isbester would finish first in his morning slalom race while Starbuck finished fourth. In the afternoon giant slalom race, Isbester placed third which was good enough to earn him the silver medal for the Level 2 division. Each event sees skiers compete in a timed event, maneuvering through poles as they race down the hill aiming for the fastest time. In the giant slalom the poles are spaced closer together, requiring faster and tighter turns. The previous week at KASSAA the Hawks sent their entire team, which consisted of four skiers. Isbester earned gold on both the slalom and giant slalom while Starbuck earned silver in the slalom and giant slalom. At Level 1 NDSS’ Sophia Brink earned a fifth place ribbon in the giant slalom while Dylan Lollar had a strong showing in both slaloms. This year’s KASSAA meet was hosted by LCVI and KCVI. With their first season now in the books, the coaching staff is hoping to build the program for next year, hoping to recruit enough

Raiders draw Islanders in semifinals Game 1 set for tomorrow at SPC BY ADAM PRUDHOMME Staff Reporter

Riding a 10-game unbeaten streak to close out the regular season, the Napanee Raiders will open the PJHL playoffs at home tomorrow night against the thirdseeded Gananoque Islanders in a best-of-seven semifinal playoff series. In an early playoff preview, these two clubs met last Friday in a regular season matchup with Napanee earning a 4-2 victory on home ice. Austin Boulard and Justynn Steven put the Raiders up 2-0 after the first, a lead they’d never surrender. Gananoque’s Ty Norman made it interesting with a goal late in the sec-

ond but was offset by early strikes from Tyler Ignazzitto and Boulard in the third. Mitch Brennan scored late for the Islanders but it wasn’t enough. Jeremy Wasson was outstanding in net, stopping 45 of 47 shots. Islanders' goalie Greame Gemmill was tested 36 times by Raider shooters. Wasson, who got off to a bit of a rocky start with the Raiders by going 5-5 in his first 10 starts, finished the season strong with a 5-0-1 finish, allowing four goals only once over that span. He finished the regular season at 10-5-1 with a 2.68 GAA, making a strong case to be the starting goalie for their playoff run. The Raiders were scheduled to play last Saturday in Campbellford for their 40th and final game of the regular season, but the Rebels forfeited due to a lack of players. The game would

have no bearing on the final standings, which saw Napanee go 27-12-1, with 55 points. They finished well back of the top seeded Port Hope Panthers, who ended the regular season at 35-31, good for 71 points. They finished the year with just 39 games played as Sunday’s game against the Amherstview Jets was cancelled due to weather. Gananoque checks in at third at 21-18-1 with 43 points. Picton claims the fourth seed with a 20-19-1 record and 41 points. The Jets and Rebels finishing on the outside looking in of the playoffs with 12-25-1 and 037-1 records respectively. With Game 1 of the Raiders/Islanders series set for 7:30 p.m. at the SPC tomorrow night, Game 2 will go in Gananoque Sunday night at 7:10 p.m.

Ultimately next year we want to get at least five to 10 boys and five to 10 girls. All they have to be are intermediate skiers. They

don’t have to be experts,” he continued. The sport is broken down into two levels with those that ski competitively on weekends grouped into Level 2 while the less experienced compete as Level 1. “It’s open to everyone,” said coach Isbester. “It’s not like you have to be an avid skier.” This season the Golden Hawks trained at Calabogie Ski Hill though they will look to hold their practices closer to home at Batawa next winter.

Atom, Midget Stars take on PEC Kings Both Napanee teams looking for wins tonight on home ice

Beaver Sports

The Calderwood Automation Atom BB Napanee Stars began their quarterfinal round on Saturday in Wellington against the PEC Kings, rallying for a critical overtime win in Game 1. The Kings came out against the Stars quickly, opening the game with two quick goals. Seth Rivers of the Stars, assisted by Duncan Clarke, would cut the lead in half. Trailing by a score of 2-1 going into the second, PEC would again increase their lead and Napanee would fall behind 3-1 going into the third peri-

od. Caleb South, assisted by Rivers, would provide the start of the Stars’ rally in the third. In the midst of end to end action, Luke Jarmin would tie the game for the Stars late in the third. Outstanding goal tending by Aiden Vallier against continued pressure from the Kings would preserve the tie going into overtime. The Stars brought pressure to the Kings early into the overtime period, and it would pay off with Zered Haller, assisted by South, netting the winner for the Stars. The Stars are scheduled to host the Kings

tonight at 6:30 p.m. at the SPC. ■ The Napanee Cab BB Midget Stars continued their playoff run last weekend with a win and a loss against the PEC Kings. Taylor Stalkie scored the only Stars’ goal on Saturday, banging in his own rebound after redirecting a shot from Liam Wilkinson. The goal was not enough Saturday as the Kings squeaked a late third-period marker to win the game 2-1. The Stars were better on Sunday as they took an early

lead on a goal from Wilkinson. The lead would hold through to the third period when PEC decided to make a game of it by replying with a goal of their own. With three minutes to go in the game, Corbin Gibson sent Josh Cudd in alone for the game winner. Cudd sealed the deal with an empty-netter moments later, knotting the series at one game apiece. The series continued last night, with results unknown at presstime. The Stars are back home tonight at 9 p.m. for Game 4.

Napanee was 4-7 on the regular season. The junior girls were left on the outside looking in of the playoff picture. ■ On the ice, the girls hockey team took a break from KASSAA action to take part in a Toronto tournament this week, reaching the finals before losing 3-2 to the Nelson Flames from the Halton region. The Hawks wrap up the regular season tomorrow against Ernestown at 3 p.m. They will then get set for the KASSAA quarter-finals on Wednesday, which they will host. Their opponent is yet to be determined. Napanee entered their final two regular season games with a 5-1 record, tied with Sydenham for second — though the Hawks did have a game in hand. The boys hockey team locked up first place with a 4-1 win over KCVI on Monday. That moved them to 61-1 on the year, one point ahead of La Salle. The Hawks still had a game to play yesterday against Ernestown while La Salle had wrapped up their schedule. The boys’ playoffs begin Tuesday.

Queen’s is playing a handful of OUA season games in Napanee as a warm up to the National Championship they will host at the SPC March 16-19.

NDCC to host free public curling on Monday BY SANDY EASTLAKE On the Button

he annual Ladies Club Bonspiel earlier this month was great fun for 32 lady curlers thanks to convenor Moira Sickling. The ladies played two six end games to determine an overall winner who this year was the team of Marilyn Cole, Linda Yorke, Robin Stockfish and Sheila Pennell followed closely by

T

Karen Brant, Liz Goldie, Sandy Semple and Emily Brant. The winners of closest to the button and/or double take out were Lynn Austin and Lana Jaeger. All the ladies gave a standing ovation to Sickling for her continued yearly convening of this event. NDCC’s Highland Lassie Bonspiel is this Saturday followed by the annual Town and Country Bon-

spiel set for Wednesday. Jack McNamee 613-3542414 is accepting registrations. This past Saturday a Napanee team Skipped by Walt Genereux with Doug Pennell, Steve Anderson and Phil Berry won the 24 team Pat Lid Senior Men’s Bonspiel at Cataraqui. Not fairing quite so well were NDCC's other two teams of Andy Palmer, John Ryan, Bill Sullivan and

Robert Hough plus Brian Chadwick, Ian Munro, Andy Graham, and Ray Snider. The Winter Chill Festival set for Monday will be one large day of family fun. There are lots of activities at the Strathcona Paper Centre but also the Napanee and District Curling Club will be hosting some of the fun with free public curling happening from 9:30 a.m. to noon; contact Ian Munro 613-354-1828.

team members, especially considering all training had to be conducted by travelling significant distances due to the lack of a pool in Napanee. ■ On the hard court, the junior Hawks boys basketball team saw their best season in decades come to an end with a 50-25 KASSAA quarter-finals loss to the Frontenac Falcons on Tuesday. Napanee entered the playoffs as the sixth seed, going 5-5 in the regular season. Though it was an early exit, the future looks bright for the young team with much of the core talent eligible to return for at least three more years. The senior boys basketball team just missed out on the playoffs, losing the finals of a three-way play-in against the Marie-Rivier Dragons. ■ The senior girls volleyball team saw their playoff run come to an end Tuesday, losing in three sets to the Sydenham Golden Eagles. The NDSS girls drew the top-ranked undefeated Golden Eagles after they just managed to qualify for the playoffs by clinching the eighth seed.

The rest of the series' dates were yet to be finalized at press time. Napanee won six of the eight regular season meetings between the two clubs. On the season the Raiders scored 199 goals as a team while the Islanders potted

160. In goal the Raiders allowed 94 goals against while the Islanders saw their opponents score 144 times against them. Rysouke Kobayashi represents the Islanders biggest offensive threat with 20 goals in 24 games played while Chris Minns had a team high 46 points. Steven

meanwhile had a team high 25 goals for Napanee with Boulard and Riley Steeves sharing the lead for points at 47 each. In the other PJHL semifinal series the Pirates will host the Panthers tonight for Game 1 of their best-ofseven with Game 2 on Saturday in Port Hope. The

heavily favoured Panthers won all eight match-ups against the Pirates though they did stumble a bit by their standards down the stretch after looking unbeatable for much of the season. The Panthers are looking to repeat as league champions for a third straight year.
