Pie in the Sky grounded Structural issues prompt town to close building BY ASHLEY FOLEY Staff Reporter

A couple months after Anne Hull donated her chili cook-off winnings to local food banks, she has been forced to close her business, and fears bankruptcy. Pie in the Sky owners Anne and Stephen Hull say they are going under and see no way out. Their building has decayed and the town has erected a fence to block off the area, halting business and income from both their café and in their rental units above the store. Stephen said his largest frustration is that the town has no plan for fixing, reconstructing or reopening access to his business in the near future. “Instead of fixing it, what they did was put up big barricades,” said Stephen. He does, however, agree the fences are a good short-term fix in order to ensure public safety. Prior to the fences, the Hulls were instructed on Dec. 27 not to rent out their upstairs apartments, as they were deemed unsafe. They complied, losing $1,500 a month in income, greatly affecting their $2,500 monthly mortgage on the building. With the fence blocking entranceways to their café, they say they have no income and expect their insurance costs will spike.

The deputy-reeve is selected by the council from among its own membership. At Stone Mills’ regular council meeting on Monday night, Reeve Doug Bearance stepped down from the chair to introduce the motion to discuss and decide on the proposed electoral changes at the April 15 session. The motion passed, but not before some council members wondered what would happen to service arrangements for specific wards should the voting system be changed to at-large. “If you go to elections at-large, what is going to

ular ward. It would just be, yes or no, are we in favour of elections at-large?” said another Ward 3 councillor, Doug Davison. “We can still have garbage pickup in Newburgh,” added fellow Ward 3 rep John Wise. “Whether you call it a ward or the village of Newburgh, the boundaries are already defined. All we are talking about is how we will elect our council. Nothing else has to change. We can make that clear, and have motions to that effect so that nothing changes but the way we vote.” In fact, Wise said that if service arrangements were going to be affected by the at-large voting motion, he’d vote against it. “At this point, I’m inclined to vote for elections at-large, but if they screw things up for Newburgh for some reason, I won’t vote for them. It’s just about voting, and that’s it,” Wise told council.

The L&A 4-H Club had 26 members last year. We had three clinics at the beginning of the year. Our first clinic was what to look for when judging cattle. The second clinic taught the members how to groom the cattle, and the last one was how to present your animal in the show ring for the judge. We took 10 members to the Royal. Everyone did a great job and worked really hard. One of our members, Victoria Austin made it to the finals in her Showmanship Class. WELL DONE!

After the vote, whichever side wins, it’s business as usual. We carry on. What you’re getting at here, you’re talking about services here, and that’s not the issue.

I don’t want to let the cattle out of the barn here and not know where they’re going.” Ward 1 rep Kevin Wagar echoed Smith’s concerns. “We’re changing the ward system, we’re changing the boundaries. What is going to happen with services? Is there going to be changes?” asked Wagar. “There is going to be changes besides just the election. Newburgh will no longer exist.

Local clubs gather at Southview P.S. to offer one-stop shopping for parents, kids BY ADAM PRUDHOMME Staff Reporter

Young athletes and campers will have a chance to check out all their options for the upcoming spring and summer season tomorrow and Saturday, all under Southview Public School’s roof. Known as the Lennox and Addington Sports and Leisure Showcase, the joint venture between Greater Napanee and Napanee Area Community Health Centre gives clubs a platform to meet with children looking for a hobby. The goal is to promote healthy habits for the younger generation while getting the word out about the many clubs that are in the area. “We wanted to bring all the groups together so it’s a one-stop shopping kind of deal,” said Ben Hagerman, who works for the Town of Greater Napanee and is helping to organize the event. “You’re not searching online or running all over town. The groups are going to be providing general information as well as registration opportunities for the spring and summer season.” This year will mark the first time in several years the town has organized such an event. The showcase is not only geared to athletes but anyone looking to help out as well. Information on volunteer opportuni-

ties as well as coaching positions will also be discussed. Clubs will set up displays and have representatives on hand to answer any questions. Parents can find out all the costs involved with registering their kids, as well as any equipment they may need to buy. Kids can also learn a bit more about a club before deciding if it’s something that would interest them. So far, 12 groups have been confirmed with more expected by the end of the week. Anyone looking to set up a table at the event can contact Lyndsay Tee at ltee@greaternapanee.com. The cost is $25 for a table and two chairs. “We’re hoping to get this moving in a twice a year direction, once every six months,” said Hagerman. “We hope to have one at this time of the year and one in the fall for the winter clubs as well.” Whether it becomes a regular event depends on how successful the first event is, though early indications bode well. Ideally it will lead to a spike in registration numbers across the board for all clubs. “We’re just looking to go full speed ahead on this and make it as public friendly as possible,” added Hagerman. Doors open tomorrow night at 5 p.m. and remain open until 7 p.m. On Saturday the event runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Southview Public School, which just opened this past September, is located at 18 Golf Course Lane in Napanee.

Paint Your Ceiling - Not White!

A few weeks ago I mentioned my dislike for painting ceilings and I further discussed my attempt to change my attitude with a simple plan of painting my ceiling an actual colour; other than white. A stir was created as a result of these comments and many clients have stopped by or called for advice on how to go about adding colour to their ceilings. We have put together a few small tips to help you get comfortable with making a change. First, if your wall colour is light, use the same colour on the ceiling. My first attempt at this was very pleasing. I was absolutely surprised at the effect this has on my room. We have received much positive response from clients who have tried this process. Once they try it, they love it! Second, for dark walls choose a colour that is 1-2 shades lighter than the walls. The Team at AURA by Colour Connection can help with your selection or we can create a custom colour just for you! Heck, we even name it after you and keep it in our database. Finally, I have viewed bold uses of colour for the purposes of accentuating a beautiful lighting fixture or perhaps even an artistic detail in your room. By painting your ceiling a fabulous red, gray or chocolate brown you can make a bold statement and break out of the box so many of us feel the necessity to live in. Always remember, it is only paint. No matter what your choice is, be sure to love to live in your room.

EDITORIAL

At-large voting is most fair On April 15, Stone Mills council will settle a long-standing issue: whether or not to get rid of the ward-based voting system and adopt an at-large voting system. We’ve gone on record already saying that we’re in favour of the at-large system, and for a few reasons. The most compelling of those reasons this: with at-large voting, every council member is accountable to every resident in the municipality. No longer will a council representative have to simply worry about what’s happening within their own part of the township. Yes, we know that council members ‘represent the entire township, no matter what part they’re elected from’ — as any council member will invariably tell you — but with at large voting, that approach is ensured. Further, all voters in the township will be able to hold all council members to account for the decisions they make around the council table. As it stands, voters can only vote for (or against) those who are running in their ward, and for the mayor. At-large voting is simply more democratic. The most common argument against at-large voting is that it will remove the assured representation for Ward 1 (Newburgh) and Ward 2 (Sheffield). If the township moves to at-large voting, won’t that mean that the rest of the township could run roughshod over the interests of Newburgh and/or Sheffield? We suppose it could — although that can happen now. Newburgh only has one rep out of six at the council table, and Sheffield only has two. Those wards are already losing that numbers game. We’re also hard pressed to think of too many issues that are unique to certain areas of the township. It’s a rural township. Service levels are virtually identical across the municipality. Newburgh has its own representative — but do Newburgh issues vary greatly from issues faced by Tamworth, Enterprise, Yarker or Camden East, none of which have their own individual council rep? Also, the ward voting may guarantee representation, but it also limits it: with at-large voting, for instance, two or more council members might just come from Newburgh. As it stands, Newburgh is limited to just one rep. Ultimately, we can’t imagine how going to at-large voting will have a dramatic impact on how the township is governed day-to-day. We can’t imagine that the decisionmaking process will be significantly altered. That, however, is probably the most compelling reason why the council should stick with the current system — in other words, if it’s not broke, why fix it? Council just may determine that the benefits derived from doing away with ward-based elections don’t outweigh the hard feelings that will undoubtedly arise. That said, fair is fair — and at-large voting is the system that is most fair to the entire township. And, it’s the option council should adopt.

Dress rehearsal the winter in your basement. For giant flowering pie-plate sized specimens look for ‘cactus flowering’. These are the ones that the pros grow for competitions come September. This native of Mexico, Central American and Columbia was first exported to Europe in the 1500’s. Since that time it has experienced extensive hybridization and ‘improvement’. For daisy shaped dahlias look for ‘single-flowered’ and for masses of round clusters of dahlias look for ‘pompom’ dahlias. Whatever you choose, I predict you will be hooked on them after your first successful season. You will be giving them away to friends and family come fall and taking pictures that you post on facebook or in digital albums. Go ahead, give it a try and prove me wrong.

Springtime is the land awakening. The March winds are the morning yawn. ~Quoted by Lewis Grizzard Generally gardeners have up until mid May to enjoy some ‘time off’ from gardening activity. It is our dress rehearsal for the busy season ahead. The many tasks that thrust themselves upon the gardener when the weather finally warms up the soil minimize the opportunities for day dreaming and planning. Our response to the flowering bulbs pushing their way up through the spring soil and the ensuing weeds that push their way past them is to simply get to work. We rake and fertilize the lawn, spread mulch and remove winter debris from the garden just as soon as the weather calls us out of our reclining chair by the fireplace. It is the beginning of the beginning. Seldom during the gardening season do we sit long enough to let our thoughts wander off the beaten path, at least not the way that we do in the ‘off’ season. The point is that we need to take advantage of the situation now: And it is time for some warm-up activity in the form of tuber forcing. Plant Dahlias Now The aforementioned tubers are the dahlias that you dug up last fall and placed in an insulated craft bag and placed in the basement. These should be removed from their hiding place and potted up into one gallon sized containers using quality potting or container mix. Place your dahlia pots in a bright sunny window. On the floor in front of a sliding door out to the deck works,

as you are not likely to use it much until the heat of mid spring hits home. The sun will intensify through the glass door or window, warming the pots of dormant tubers, encouraging them to put down roots before they push new green growth through the surface of the soil. Before planting your dahlia tubers divide the hefty ones that you stored. Look for ‘finger like’ tubers about five to eight centimetres long, with an ‘eye’ at the stem end. Cut each tuber using a clean, sharp knife. Pass the blade over an open flame before using just to be sure that it is sterile. Be sure to plant the tuber with the stem end up and the tapered end down. If you get them sideways or upside down it is not the end of the world as they are

smart enough to find their own way, generally speaking. They have been programmed genetically to push roots down and green growth up without any help from us.

Mark Cullen Green File Once Started Once the green growth has pushed through the soil a couple of centimetres it is time to fertilize them with half strength 20-20-20 every two weeks. Give the pot a ½ turn every few days to encourage even growth that does not favour the direction of the sun. By the end of May your dahlias will be large and

strong enough to place out of doors in the garden. Choose a sunny, sheltered place where they will not blow over in the wind as they mature. Dahlias started indoors in this way will bloom four to six weeks earlier than those planted directly into the soil in the garden. By midsummer you will likely have to stake your dahlias with a sturdy 2 x 2 inch wooden stake or using one of the new ‘link stakes’ that are much easier to work with and to look at (as you do not see them!). Time to Shop A visit to the garden centre or hardware store this time of year reveals a surprisingly wide assortment of dahlias that can be started indoors, just like the ones that you stored over

Tuberous Begonias While you are in the mood to shop for summer flowering tubers why not check out the many varieties of tuberous begonias that are available at retailers this time of year. While they have a reputation for growing well in the shade, the truth is that they like about four or five hours of indirect sun to perform at their very best through the growing season. I start my tuberous begonias this time of year by pushing them with a ‘half twist’ into pure peat moss which has been spread about 2 or 3 cm thick in a seed starting tray. I then place them on top of the refrigerator where the low, ambient heat encourages root growth even without much natural light. They actually root better without light. Once the tubers have produced roots about 3 or 4

cm long it is time to remove them from the damp peat gently and plant them up into 10 cm (4 inch) pots. Now you put them in a sunny window until the end of May when you will plant them out in the garden or into containers. The large rose-like blooms of tuberous begonias have an affluent look to them that makes people stop in their tracks and admire. The many hanging varieties are perfect for hanging baskets and window boxes. Their No. 1 enemy is wind. No. 2 is overwatering. Locate to avoid the former and resist the temptation of being guilty of the latter. Let your tuberous begonias enjoy some dryness between watering.

OFA FROM PAGE 6 As we move forward with pre-budgetary consultations in the coming weeks, the OFA will ask Ontario’s government to assist with the expansion of natural gas lines in rural Ontario by using infrastructure dollars already designated for rural communities. Funding to expand the natural gas pipeline network into rural Ontario will make low-cost energy available to a greater number of Ontario citizens, including farms, and give them a better competitive advantage. Debra Pretty-Straathof is vice-president of the OFA.

Spring migration is well underway UST for the record, this column does not support the recent decision to dismantle the commercial fishing operation at the Prince Edward Point Harbour. It is sad to see a part of our commercial fishing heritage disappear. On past guided hikes at Prince Edward Point, I have enjoyed relating the history of this village and how its presence seemed to reflect a bucolic atmosphere that we are rapidly losing in today’s society. As one e-mailer succinctly put it, far too many bureaucrats need to get out of their climate controlled offices and into the real world. A fishing boat in late November on Lake Ontario would be good place to start. It seems that the entire South Shore, and now, right down to the Point, has suffered more than its share of abuse this past year. Meanwhile, migratory birds are not paying much attention to all of this as the South Shore prepares to open its doors for another spring migration. It got under way with the arrival of redwinged blackbirds on the 9th, followed by grackles the next day. As a farmer from way back, I was programmed to dislike blackbirds

J

because of the crop damage that resulted from their voracious feeding. However, there is something about that first arrival that promises more spring like conditions in the offing, and that the warbler migration is but a month or so away. One observer reported thousands of blackbirds arriving that morning; yet, one day earlier, they had been totally absent from the scene, suggesting a major influx had arrived from across the lake in the night. By early next day, scattered numbers had arrived to the Bay of Quinte shoreline. Harbingers? Not likely, as March weather can be fickle. But, as we know, they are survivors, and birds generally time their arrivals by the presence of available food. There is also reverse migration, when birds in their enthusiasm to get a head start on the breeding season, arrive a bit too early, with scores of some species turning tail and retreating a bit farther south, and reassessing the situation before giving it another attempt. Life can be hard for some of these early arrivals, but somehow they manage. A few casualties, we suppose, of the inexperienced who

Terry Sprague

Outdoor Rambles are not creative enough to alter their food habits until better conditions come along. We wonder about species like woodcocks that arrived on the 12th who depend on soft earth to probe for earthworms, and what happens to them when frigid overnight temperatures freeze the soil, rendering it impenetrable. Well, you make the best of it. One observer many years ago during one such hard freeze, came across a long line-up of woodcocks probing in a roadside ditch, the only spot that had not frozen overnight. Sometimes the weather turns

so severely that some species simply cannot endure. Tree swallows can arrive as early as mid-March, if conditions are suitable enough to produce flying insects to sustain them. If it happens to turn cold and snow a bit, no problem, because tree swallows have evolved to exist on a diet of berries in an emergency. Likely not as tasty and digestible as insects, but they probably reason that indigestion is a far better option than interment. But, what happens when thousands are here, and the weather turns really nasty? That’s what happened on April 4, 2003 when a two-day sleet and snow storm dumped several inches of snow, and even after it cleared, well below freezing temperatures persisted for six days. The few berries that somehow got missed by the winter residents didn’t help. In Trenton, the last of the tree swallows were seen swooping over the open waters of the Trent Canal, in a desperate bid for any remaining insects. In the days that followed, thousands of dead tree swallows were gathered up. A Belleville area resident found 37 carcasses on his lawn and 18 dead swallows

in one of his nesting boxes. During the height of the storm, a Trenton resident reported dead swallows falling from trees in which they had sought shelter. As a newcomer to the area, she understandably wondered what toxic world she had moved to as she continued to watch. She later found 38 dead swallows packed in a nest box, likely the victims of suffocation, rather than starvation. Without doubt, the storm resulted in 100 per cent mortality. As spring returned the following week, thousands who wisely migrated later, arrived again to the Quinte area, but residents who experienced the earlier mortality will not soon forget that week of April, 2003. March weather can be unkind. Life is not kind or fair as we have seen with the commercial fishing decision at Prince Edward Point, and so it is often, too, with birds.

Napanee’s Piety Hill parcel L

O O K I N G

A C K

A trip through the pages of The Napanee Beaver 65 Years Ago March 24, 1948 n Lennox and Addington County council established a new, enlarged high school district which included most of southern L&A. With the new district set, a new high school board would soon be established, with each participating municipality appointing a trustee to the board. The Town of Napanee would be permitted to make three appointments to the board, while the County of L&A would be permitted to make one to three board appointments. Sheffield Township and the rest of L&A’s northern municipalities were left out of the new school board district as they had already established their own secondary school arrangements. n The Napanee Lions Club held another successful series of boxing matches. The club lined up a total of 10 bouts between fighters from Napanee, Picton and Kingston. In the main event of the night, Napanee’s Frank Morton won a technical knock-out victory over Terry Louth of Picton as the first round came to an end.

35 Years Ago March 22, 1978 n Local MP Doug Alkenbrack, preparing to go into retirement from public life, threw his support behind 26-year-old Brian Reid in his bid for the local Progressive Conservative nomination. Reid had been Alkenbrack’s aide, assisting Alkenbrack between 1972-74. “He was a big help to me, especially with the young people,” Alkenbrack said. Five candidates were now vying to replace Alkenbrack as the local federal PC candidate: besides Reid, Bill Vankoughnet, James Bennett, Cordon Bennett, and Nan Whitlaw were all seeking the Tory nod. n The OPP were continuing to appeal to local residents in helping them find some leads that would help them solve the murder of a teenage girl from London, Ont. The body of a 16-year-old girl, Linda Bright, was found along County Rd. 11 near Selby. The girl, originally from London, had been strangled. Police stressed that any information, even seemingly minor details, could provide the break they need in the case. They also said that any information given to police would held “in confidence.”

The Saturday Globe of 1893 reported that the town of Napanee ‘possesses substantial business blocks and beautiful homes.’ Four such houses are perched on Piety Hill, as it is still known to this today. The Dundas Street West properties, numbering 166 to 172, in a terraced line once had a commanding view down to the centre of town. They also possess an interesting history for a number of reasons. The Hon. R. J. Cartwright figured large in this purchase as he did many times in the area. The original tract, which was the entire block bounded by Donald, Mill and Union, was deeded to Cartwright on Aug. 17, 1868. (Original Plan 82, Lots 36-39). The four homes were built in the same era, but it is acknowledged that the Ham house at 170 Dundas West was the first one to be built on the hill. Although the original owner cannot be verified, this was the former home of Kenneth and Margaret Ham and was deeded from John Samuel Ham to Kennetth S. Ham in 1950. This home is Victorian in design with a verandah across the front and a high gabled peak and Gothic-like pendants. The windows are large paned with wooden sunburst caps above them. A heavily bracketed porch with heavy balustrade leads you to a formal entry with semi-sidelight panels and a simple transom. Kenneth Ham attended Trinity College, Toronto and enlisted as a gunner in the 67th Battery during the First World War. He served 16 months on the Western Front and was a commissioned Lieutenant. As a lawyer he would become a King’s Council under the reign of King George VI and later Queen’s Council. His wife Margaret Ham was a devoted choirmaster of St. Mary Magdalene Church for many years, maturing a world class Royal School of Church music chorale. Back to the foot of the terrace is 166 Dundas St. West, now the home of former Mayor Chris Seeley and Rosaleen Cutler. It was built by George A. Cliff in 1881. Deeds also show that same year a right-of-way behind the property being sold to next door 168 Dundas for $650. Piety Hill, which was also known then as Protestant Hill, had one proposed deed in 1919 that called for the demolition of buildings to be replaced with a Wesleyan Methodist

Napanee’s Piety Hill, pictured on a postcard dating back to 1909. Church, but this was never executed. The house has, however, had some 40 owners, including a carpenter, merchant, commercial traveller, minister, grocer, at least one insolvency, and a noted judge. Gerald F. Smith was first appointed a County Court Judge in 1950 and bought 166 Dundas in 1951 from widow Patricia A. Sills for $ 7,000. Smith was also President of the L&A Historical Soci-

Charles Beale Legacy ety in 1954 when it established a museum and began collecting local antiques. Taxes in 1957 for this property were $281.40. The Cutler-Seeley house is a two-story triple brick with Italianate featured windows and doors. The front entry has the simple transom and full sidelight glass panels. Its east-facing double bay window with inset brick banding and a front double bay that runs down through the main level verandah gives it a commanding presence. A wraparound

boating enthusiast all his life. He took part in town bands and orchestras and had been a member of the Masonic Lodge, the Shriners and Rotary Clubs. The fourth in the Piety Hill parcel at the top end is 172 Dundas, the former home of Barbara Kimmerly (Cowle), daughter of Arthur at 168 Dundas. Its unusual design is in the three-sided turret-style main block and the French windows along a wraparound front verandah. Voussoirs wedges adorn the brickwork above the upper floor street-facing windows and barge board trim, or hood moldings adorn the portico entry and verandah. The eastfacing block has a square bay on the lower level with the usual Italianate bracketed soffit overhang. A west-facing square bay, added later, provides balances. A sharp peaked roof line over the portico and a lesser one to the west add interest and whimsy to this unique design. Over time, lots were sold off to the south of these grand homes and the view of the waterfront was blocked at street level with only Ham’s field remaining to this day. This large grassy patch was always available for a game of scrub baseball and the nearby hill to Water Street was a winter toboggan run, used at your own peril in the days when traffic on these streets were minimal. None of these properties are designated. Charles Beale is a former educator, historian, freelance writer and author of Manly E. MacDonald Interpreter of Old Ontario.

porch with heavy balustrade and doric columns add to its grandness. There are indications that the original porch mirrored that of its neighbour at 168 Dundas and also like its immediate neighbour, the roofline shows exaggerated brackets in a wide overhanging soffit. The double chimney piece is to the rear of this house where an addition was more recently constructed. A limestone wall with heavy cap stone crest is shown in the Piety Hill postcard supplied by the present owners. Of interest, Dundas is part of what was considered the first macadamized or paved road that ran east to west through Ontario, but at the time, the area here north to Bridge Street was very low and swampy, requiring a foot bridge. 168 Dundas Street West was the home of former well-known resident Arthur S. Kimmerly and family. Also Italianate in design, it showcases a double story verandah on the east side and a smaller front porch entry with Italianate double winter doors. This house also has a square bay window on west side and a double flued ornate chimney rising from the middle rear of the roofline. A two-story brick carriage house sits behind this fine home. Art Kimmerly was also a mayor of Napanee from 1932-33 and again in 195253, as well as being a merchant who operated a third-generation grocery store on Dundas Street for more than 40 years. Kimmerly was an extensive land owner, a Justice of the Peace for about nine years, an avid hunter, fisher and

Greater Napanee

Solar farm foes skeptical of hearing outcome A group of concerned community members who appealed CanadianSolar’s proposed Little Creek solar project has met with the Environmental Review Tribunal to voice their concerns. Tony Fleming, legal representative for the Town of Greater Napanee, also attended the ERT meeting on March 11, as council too objected to the development after the January appeal was made by members of the public. The Little Creek Solar Project is proposed to be located in the County of Lennox and Addington and would be a 10-kilowatt project. The application was put forth prior to a new Ontario law stating further development of ground mounted solar above 10-kilowatts

Rotter and her team requested that the media leave the meeting. The parties have been in communication since the appeal to order to reach a resolution, which McCracken said is their only choice left in the matter. “That preliminary tribunal we were involved in the other day was just a desperate attempt by locals to stop it but we can’t stop it at this point,” said McCracken a few days after the meeting. “It’s a mess. We’re powerless to stop it right now because of how it’s set. The Ministry of Environment explained that people have challenged approvals similar to this (and lost),” said McCracken. She argued that even though there are protected species on the land, environmentally protected areas including low lands and marshy areas, a major drainage ditch for local

properties such as Baker’s farm, and serves as a major travelway for wildlife such as deer and turkeys, it was not enough evidence to stop the project from progressing. “It will proceed. There’s not a lot we can do. We asked them about mitigating the lands and some landscaping, trying not to remove all the mature trees, how (they’re) going to control the weeds, those sorts of things were discussed, just to keep them as good neighbours and to ease the pain a bit,” said McCracken. “It’s very frustrating and it’s very ugly.” She contended that the project would not only hurt the environment but also taxpayers. “It’s not a good financial deal for the Ontario taxpayer because they’re paying them 42 cents a kilowatt hour and they’re selling it back to the user for seven

Four members who oppose CanadianSolar’s project attended the tribunal: Pam McCracken, Kathy Cuthill, James Cuthill and Doug Baker. Baker requested to voice his concerns regarding personal losses to his farm and the environment. “I want to talk about how this project is going to affect my farm next door and many issues like environmental, drainage, farm values, those types of things,” he said briefly. “I don’t think drainage and farm values are really items that this tribunal would have jurisdiction over or make a decision about,” said Frederika Rotter, counsel for the Ministry of Environment attending the tribunal.

Impaired on 401

The Napanee OPP detachment is asking for the public’s assistance in tracking down a vintage car that was taken from a Napanee residence this week. According to police, an orange 1972 Chevrolet Monte Carlo was parked at a residence on Mill Street overnight. Sometime between 9 p.m. on Sunday and 10 a.m. on Monday, the car went missing.

Town to explore ways to boost voter participation New measure follows up on stalled resolution BY ASHLEY FOLEY Staff Reporter

Town of Greater Napanee council has moved to research ways of engaging voters through new voting methods, ward boundaries and investigating electronic voting practices, after rescinding a similar resolution that was made two years ago. On Feb. 8, 2011, councillor Michael Schenk moved a motion, seconded by councillor Bill Pierson, but the passed motion had not been acted on. During the last council meeting, these councillors took the old resolution off the books and moved a new motion, which was carried. The motion was/is: “That staff hold a series of public meetings and prepare an online survey to elicit public discussion and comment regarding the current election system in Greater Napanee, specifically to: explain the various voting methods and to ask what voting method or combination of voting methods would improve accessibility and get the most voter turnout, and: to discuss what ward boundaries, if any, are most appropriate for Greater Napanee.” Those councillors also moved and passed a second motion, to investigate online and phone voting polls.

Councillor Shaune Lucas was opposed to both motions, feeling council was spinning its wheels on an issue that has not moved forward in two years. “I’m going to vote against the resolution to rescind because the only problem I see here is that staff hasn’t enacted the resolution we sent in the first place, and now we’re two year waiting on this,” said Lucas. “My point is, prior to the election and after the election, staff gave us this report with the following recommendations. The only problem that I’m seeing with this resolution is the fact that we haven’t acted on it. I’m not prepared to support a resolution that will rescind a resolution that wasn’t acted on in the first place.” Lucas also stated voting methods had been discussed multiple times since the amalgamation and does not believe it needs to be brought up again at this point. Other councillors felt it was important to gain as many voters as possible and moving these two motions was a step in the right direction. Schenk said though he doesn’t “think anything should really be changed” regarding ward boundaries, he felt it was important to increase public feedback and look into

alternative ways of voting. Councillor Marg Isbester agreed. “I believe the ward system appears to be working fine,” said Isbester, stating she felt ward boundaries do not need to be changed. “I really would like to see us investigate Internet or telephone voting because I really think it would increase the voter turnout, which I think is the most important thing.” Mayor Gordon Schermerhorn agreed. “I think we’re wasting our time and our money by doing a bunch of public meetings and so on to see about changing wards. I do agree on increased voting,” he said. “It is disappointing when only 40 per cent of your people get out to vote.” Deputy Mayor Roger Cole also felt that electronic voting is a way to increase votes in a municipal election. “We have to do something to get the people up off their butts and out to vote. It’s discouraging to me that in a country like Canada that people are so disinterested in their local government, which is the government that is closest to the people, and 40 per cent of them come out and voice their opinion. That’s a criteria we should try to get some information or suggestions or technological or phone in voting,” said Cole.

Town moving forward with waterfront EA plan Staff Reporter

Deserontoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s contractor for waterfront development and marina expansion met with council this week to inform the municipality the project is moving forward in seeking ministerial approval for an environmental assessment. Scott Mathieson of Green Galloway â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the engineering and planning contractor â&#x20AC;&#x201D; stated he would be meeting with the Ministry of Environment on Wednesday (yesterday) to provide the terms of reference document for review. This document will be reviewed for three to five weeks, at which time the ministry will provide any concerns, comments or changes necessary. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is really just the first step of setting it up. Once these things are completed, it will be another four to five weeks for the ministry to post it, allow public feedback and comments,â&#x20AC;? said Mathieson. He expects the entire process leading up to the environmental assessment to take between eight to 12 weeks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When this is done you have the right to start an environmental assessment. You need minister

approval before you can do so,â&#x20AC;? he explained to council. According to the terms of reference document, the project is proposed to include additional boat slips and a boat launch; improve the shoreline for tourism, ecology, biology and overall health for the Bay of Quinte; improve accessibility and traffic to the downtown core; increase public walkways to promote pedestrian travel; promote local culture and history; create jobs and economic income for the Town of Deseronto; and improve park area including a skate/bike park, baseball diamonds and/or soccer fields.

The document states improvements would benefit both the community and the environment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The goal of this project is to enhance the social, natural and ultimately the economical environments for the Town of Deseronto. Development of the downtown commercial and residential sectors, including urban parkland and waterfront section are all considered,â&#x20AC;? the document reads. Mathieson and council both stressed the importance of local history in Deseronto and Mathieson said further research on local history will be chronicled.

Knowledge to get your Home SOLD

Interior Stylist Merola Tahamtan will guide you through staging and designing your home. 613-561-0244 merolatahamtandesigns@live.ca Twitter: @MerolaDesigns

Market it Right If you want to sell a property it must be available to be seen by the prospective buyers- when they want to see it. Often this means short notice on showings. It also means that all agents need to have the easiest access possible to get their buyers in the door. In most markets this means a key box on the property. There is a general belief that advertising is the principle key in obtaining showings of homes for sale. Advertising is needed. In fact, the most effective advertisement is the professional For Sale sign in the yard. Also the Multiple Listing System. In today’s market it is critical to use the latest technology. This means that you must have internet exposure and a realtor willing and able to manage your listing and sale accordingly. Know Where you are Going If you are selling it usually means you will be moving. Not only will you be moving but the buyers will want to move in once the transaction is closed. Sounds easy enough. Problem is that sometimes sellers think they can sell but there should be no urgency on their move out. Wrong. Buyers almost always want possession at closing

and usually expect to close within a reasonable period of time following an agreed contract to purchase- typically 30 to 45 days. There are many options for the seller, the easiest of which is already having another home purchased. hIf this is not feasible there R are A other possibilities to be exw s plored but this needs to ber done prior to the beginning the selling process. An experienced agent can assist the home seller in evaluating these options and can usually represent the seller as a buyer’s agent for the purchase or rental of the new property. Insist on Pre Approved Buyers Only When a home seller receives an offer to purchase there should be one primary factor that is always considered first- and it is not price. This factor is whether or not the buyer is financially able to conclude the transaction. As a seller you have limited knowledge about who the buyer is or how reliable they may be. However, you do have the ability to insist that they demonstrate their financial ability. Many buyers require financial financing when they make a home purchase and the financing approval process is quite intense. When a home buyer has made the effort up front to get pre-approved a statement from a prospective lender regarding the buyer’s pre-approval status can be provided. Negotiate Smart You have done most everything right and now have a written purchase offer in hand. What now? A lot depends on the price, terms and conditions of the offer and the strength of the buyer. There is no right formula as to how

to respond to an offer but some general negotiating principles usually apply. Try to understand the buyer’s needs and reasoning. For example: Is the offer low because the buyer thinks excessive repairs will be needed? If so, does the buyer have a valid point? Now’s the time to get realistic if you haven’t already. Try to respond to the offer so that a win/win agreement can be reached. Sometimes an offer is just not acceptable or even worthy of a response and sometimes multiple offers are received at the same time. Your agent sees a lot more offers than you do and should be a key player in helping you make the right decisions in handling negotiations. Be Pro Active This may seem to be a given to most people but it is truly amazing how many sellers think that all they have to do is sign the contract and everything else magically occur without their participation. The fact is that there are many details that only the seller can resolve to assure a timely, trouble free sale and closing. The seller’s agent will counsel and assist throughout the process but the seller will have the best overall result by being fully aware of all aspects of the process and asking as many questions as possible along the way.

PORTABLE GENERATORS Wayne Fulton is a local home inspector and can be reached at 613-354-9547

wfulton@fultonhomeinspections.com

Storms anytime of the year can cause a loss of power that can last for hours or days. The use of a portable generator is one way to help provide basic electric service and maintain a reasonable level of safety and security in the home. Most homeowners using generators will opt for the less expensive portable type to help maintain a limited power supply. When using a generator, it is critical to ensure it has been installed properly and is operated in a safe manner. There have been many incidents where individuals have survived a storm only to suffer deadly consequences due to an improperly installed or maintained generator as the exhaust from the unit contains deadly carbon monoxide. The danger of generator use also extends to utility crews helping to restore power. An improperly connected generator can lead to feedback or a surge of electricity from the generator that travels through the house wiring and back into the power lines. Anyone working on or in contact with those lines could be electrocuted.

To prevent this hazard, before using a generator, the wiring in the house must be disconnected from the incoming power lines using a transfer switch. This disconnection from the incoming power is also needed to protect the generator from damage when the power returns. Using the main disconnect in the electric panel in place of a transfer switch does not provide adequate protection from all potential feedback situations. For the efficient and safe use of a portable generator heed these recommendations: • Store the unit where it is readily available in an emergency. • Store fuel only in approved containers in a safe manner. • Read and follow all manufacturer instructions and safety warnings. • Have an electrician install a transfer switch to disconnect house wiring from the power company supply. • Never connect a generator directly to a wall outlet; it should only be directly connected to appliances or other electric equipment. • Only operate gasoline-fired units outdoors. Never run them in an enclosed-in area – not even for a short time or if the areas is seemingly well vented. The unit should also be placed at least 10 feet away from any windows, doors or vent openings. For more information on the use of portable generators visit Health Canada: www.hc-sc.gc.ca.

Local coach among Canada’s top 100 hockey volunteers Steve Durnan could earn Napanee Stars organization $100,00 if voted into the top five

BY ADAM PRUDHOMME Beaver Sports

teve Durnan’s dedication and countless volunteered hours spent coaching to the sport of hockey has earned him a spot in Kraft’s Hockey Goes On competition, which allows the public to vote for Canada’s top hockey volunteer. The Napanee resident, who runs Napanee District Minor Hockey Association’s power skating and skills development program as well as assists with the Junior C Deseronto Storm, is one of 100 finalists. Online voting will be held this Saturday, with the top five vote getters netting $100,000 for their minor hockey association. Voting closes on Sunday at 11:59 p.m. “I couldn’t be more honoured,” Durnan said of being nominated. He’s mentored kids of all ages, coaching the sport year round. In the winter

S

he creates an outdoor rink that’s opened to all kids in his neighbourhood. In the summer he operates a training camp for players to get a head start on the upcoming season. He’s served in many capacities, from coach to vice-president of house league. When the midget house league team was in danger of folding, he stepped in twice to save it. “It’s about the kids,” said Durnan. “If they don’t have that outlet, where are they going to be? Especially when they start getting to the midget age, they only have a couple more years left. The more we can do for them, the better.” Though he never really gets a break from hockey, he’s not complaining. “Just seeing the smiles on the kids’ face when you see them coming off or going on the ice (is the best part),” he said. “I always say to parents and other coaches that I work with, when you see a child coming off the ice, whether

they won, lost or it's practice, with a smile on their face, you’ve done your job.” Not one to seek the limelight, he’s actively urging people to vote for him for the sake of the program. If he can finish in the top five he’ll gladly pass the top prize onto the Stars organization. If he finishes in one of the 20 second place sports, he’ll earn $20,000 for the Stars. “This goes beyond me, this is now about doing what we can do for Napanee hockey and for the players,” he said. “If we could win that $100,000, it’d be great. That could go towards children that can't afford to play, because there’s a lot of children out there who would love to play the game. All we can do now is ask people to get online and vote.” Voting starts at 9 a.m. on Saturday, online at www.krafthockeygoeson.ca.

Seeing Steve Durnan (centre) on the ice coaching a group of kids is a common sight in Napanee. His efforts have earned him a nomination for Kraft’s Hockey Goes On competition. Voting opens on Saturday. son.ca/en/nominate/profile/61/. While his name appears on the site, Durnan says he represents all of Napanee’s volunteers. “There are so many

good volunteers in (Napanee) minor hockey,” he said. “You’ve got Heather Bertrand, Kim and Ken Morrison, Murray Kelsey, the list goes on. I’m honoured that they nominated

me for this.” With a little luck and a lot of town spirit, the entire country will soon know one of the reasons that makes Napanee’s minor hockey program so successful.

Smith is king among Kings Newburgh’s Danny Smith ready to rule lacrosse court BY ADAM PRUDHOMME Beaver Sports

Gymnasts Lindsay Stakes, Addie Kaiser and Noelle Maracle have all advanced to the provincial finals, which will be held next month in Windsor.

Noelle Maracle and Addie Kaiser will make the trip as well as Lindsay Stakes, a level six. All three earned their spot with strong showings at qualifying events in February. They then had to await the results of other events held across the

province to find out if their scores were enough to advance. They can now start preparing for the provincial finals, which will be held April 4-7 at Rose City Gymnastics. They’ll compete in beam, floor, bars and vault before a panel of judges.

Training camp for the Kingston Kings Junior C lacrosse team is barely a week old and already last year’s assistant captain Danny Smith has high expectations for his club. Coming off a summer that saw his Kings swept out of the first round of the Ontario Junior C Lacrosse playoffs, the Newburgh native is eager prove his team can be better. “It’s going to be my last year of junior,” said Smith, who is expected to continue his tenure as assistant captain. “I think the guys are expecting big things. We’ve always been fast, we’ve always been big, we’ve always been tough. We just haven’t been able to mesh like we did in the past. I think this year’s going to be the year we’re really going to come together.” As the longest-tenured King and original member of the team back when they were the Cavaliers, Smith is ready to shoulder a lot of the pressure as they hope to improve on last year’s 511 regular season finish. That placed them third in the Ontario Lacrosse Association’s East Division, well back of Cornwall and

Danny Smith has become an ambassador for lacrosse, trying to grow the sport in L&A. Brockville, ahead of only Gloucester. Brockville made quick work of them, besting them 12-1 in Game 3 last July 26 to end Kingston’s season. When not playing on the Kings’ defensive line, Smith is just as active off the court, trying to grow the sport he loves. Though he’s played just about every sport imaginable, even suiting up for the Greater Metro Hockey

League’s Deseronto Storm, lacrosse is his real passion. “I tried lacrosse mainly because it was something new,” said Smith, who now has a decade’s worth of experience with the sport. “I fell in love with it and got really good really quick.” The only problem was that Newburgh was hardly a hotspot for lacrosse.

Trinity of Stars left chasing the dream Beaver Sports

Three Napanee teams continue their quest for a championship in playoff competition. The Napanee McDougall Insurance Peewee Minors gained a 1-1 split in their best of five OMHA Finals with the Oakville Rangers. On Saturday, the Napanee McDougall Insurance Peewee Minors lost 4-2. Down 1-0 early, Derrick Vos snapped a shot over the Oakville goalie’s blocker, for a power play marker set up by Kegan Makpah and Logan White. In the middle frame, Napanee applied steady pressure, before Ryan Kirkpatrick fired from the top of the circle to make it 2-2. Adam Burger and Corbin Gibson earned helpers on the play. Less than a minute later, Oakville got the winner when the trailer on the play was left open at the side of the net. The visitors added one late to make it 4-2. The official shots on goal favoured Napanee 17-13. Bailey Maracle was between the posts for the Stars. Sunday on the Goodyear rink, the boys were re-energized to pressure their opponents incessantly. Kirkpatrick scored in the first when he picked off an errant pass to walk in alone and beat the Oakville netminder. The visitors got one back early in the second, and although the locals applied pressure, the score remained 1-1 as the clock ticked below three minutes to go in regulation. Burger got the puck to Emmet Pierce behind the net, and he headed for the front of the net, but made a quick shot just inside the left post to bring the crowd to its feet in the 2-1 win. Napanee again outshot Oakville 30-20. Murray Craig was called on to make some fine saves. The boys travel to Oakville for two games on the weekend. n The Country Traditions Novice A Stars lost both

In Game 3, the Stars lost 3-2 in overtime. Reid Lambert scored two goals, and assists went to Cal Uens, Ethan Martin and Cole Campbell. Ryan Aldridge played a strong game in net to keep the score close. In Game 4, Quinte West scored the only goal late in the third period. Goaltender Corbin Votary was strong in net. n Meanwhile, the Napanee Novice AE squad shut out Oshawa 4-0 on Sunday to complete their round robin semifinal in Lakeshore Playoffs with four wins and two ties. Saturday they had tied Port Hope, again 3-3. Their record allowed them to advance over Uxbridge, Port Hope and Oshawa. The upstart Stars, made up of majors and minors, continue to surprise centres in the A loop. They will face Ajax in the Lakeshore Finals starting on Saturday at 4:30 p.m on the Goodyear rink. n It may have been full of ups and downs, but the Napanee Peewee AE Stars’ season ended on an undeniably high note. The Stars went 4-0-1 to

capture the Aylmer Minor Hockey March AE tournament this past weekend, notching their second tourney championship of the 2012-13 campaign. A hat trick by captain Seth Barton powered the Stars in the tournament final against the upstart Simcoe Warriors. Michael Lloyd broke a 0-0 tie with a shorthanded goal early in the second period to get Napanee’s offense going. Brock Vale, Bruce Dunham, Spencer Chatterton, Kiel Benton and Braiden Brant collected assists. Goaltender Cole East won game MVP honours. The Stars’ tournament started the same way it ended: with a win. However, the Stars needed a clutch shorthanded goal by Benton with 20 seconds left in the game to salvage a win over the Elmvale Coyotes in the opener. Lloyd — who also won the game MVP nod — and Logan Votary also scored, while Benton picked up an assist. East backstopped Napanee for the win. In Game 2 against the Huntsville Otters, the Stars’ offense never hit its full stride. Luckily, neither did the Otters’. As a result, the teams battled to a 1-1 draw. Vale scored, with

Lloyd earning an assist on the play. Chatterton was named game MVP, while Nolan Hatch stood tall in net. The Napanee AEs got back to their winning ways in Game 3, finishing off the round-robin with a 3-1 win over the Prince Edward County Kings. Benton was in on every scoring play with two goals and an assist. Lloyd had a goal and an assist, while Votary and Vale both earned helpers. Barton was awarded the game MVP title, and East turned away all but one shot between the pipes. The Stars redeemed themselves against the Otters in the tournament semifinals, skating to a convincing 4-1 lead. Benton potted three goals, with Chatterton sniping the first marker. Lloyd and Vale had two assists, while Braiden Brant and Barton earned helpers. Nate Brant was named the game MVP; Nolan Hatch was rock solid in net for Napanee. They may not have made the scoresheet, but Kolten Montpetit, Aiden Mundle, Colby Sweet, Cal DuChene, Matt Thompson and Nolan Myers all contributed to their team’s success over the weekend.

LACROSSE | Growing sport CONTINUED FROM PAGE 25 In fact, Smith recalls that when he first started playing he was the only rep player to hail from anywhere between Bowmanville and Kingston. He’s always been actively campaigning, trying to get anyone even just a tad bit curious to pick up a stick and give it a try. He was quick to jump onboard with a new initiative that will see Napanee based teams play in the Kingston Krossfire Lacrosse house league, starting next month. They’re aiming to field teams in every age category from paperweight (born in 2007) to midget (born in 1997). “I think it really would have helped if I would have had (a place to play lacrosse) closer to home,” said Smith.

National United Church moderator visits Grace Faith leaders weighs in on challenges facing church BY ASHLEY FOLEY Staff Reporter

United Church of Canada Moderator Right Rev. Gary Paterson met with dairy farmers in Greater Napanee to discuss the environment as well as to address struggles within the church. “(The visit) was partly just to have a sense of what makes this area tick… and partly as a recognition that this past year was really hard on this area with the drought. So I was just wanting to hear that first-hand,” he said. Paterson, who grew up on a dairy farm, said he appreciates Canada’s rural communities just as much as the urban ones. “We all depend on farming for our food and it’s farm and the country that feed the cities and sometimes I think city folk forget that reality,” said Paterson. “Our church has a responsibility to make people aware of climate change and care for the environment,” he added. He said environment, science and theology are all elements of the United Church’s faith and are aspects the church will work to strengthen in the future. “Whatever we say about our faith needs to make sense with science and cul-

ture and the knowledge that we have about the world around us. And I think they’re not in contradiction at all, they’re complimentary. One might be how the world works with theology and then the faith might talk about the meaning of it, or the why. So they need each other, as sister disciplines,” he said. Paterson said membership has become a huge struggle, and while some say the United Church’s stands on controversial topics and issues such as sexuality and homosexuality has been a large factor in membership, Paterson disagrees. “I look at other Christian denominations, they didn’t make those statements and they are struggling just like we are with the same statistics like age and shrinking finances. I don’t think people are leaving because of the political stance,” he said. He said today, many people claim to be spiritual, or have faith, but are not religious or do not buy into going to church on Sunday. Determining the best way to accommodate these individuals has been one of the United Church’s largest struggles lately. “Part of the time we get caught on crying about the good old days and saying, ‘Why can’t it be the same? … we should look at it as how

Paterson gave the example of a friend of his who led

a sermon on 50 Shades of Grey. The minister informed the media he would be doing so and the church was packed. “If everybody is really reading that, rather than saying, ‘Tut, tut, tut,’ say, ‘Let’s talk about it,’” he said. “(The church needs to) address issues that are really important to people but

do it in a way that people will find their imagination caught in a way that they will listen and address things that are really happening.” Other ministers have talked of popular culture and movies as ways to discuss justice, temptation and sin. Others use virtual meetings and flash churches through social media sites like Facebook, Twitter and online faith sites, to engage Christians. “We’re a very busy culture. I think nobody is to blame but it’s a culture of distraction so we can keep ourselves preoccupied with gizmos and film and sport and there’s less time, maybe, to ponder just the questions

of life. I think people need some space to think, ‘Why am I here? What’s my life all about?’” he said. Paterson argued that people should take more time to “ponder life,” whether it’s about faith, theology, science or creation. His home church in Vancouver has implemented yoga and Buddhism to provide more opportunities for self-reflection. “(It’s about) how you understand the movement of body as a way of encountering the spirit,” he said. “I think we’re called to really savour life and I think faith is a way to do that… I think half the time we live life, almost asleep at the wheel. And I want people to wake up.”

You captured the essence of the man John was and we were comforted by your final words: â&#x20AC;&#x153;..with Ford driving the boat and my dad and Uncle Doug on the lookout, they gave John the signal to let go of the rope. Your battle is over, Uncle John, there are calmer waters aheadâ&#x20AC;?. For the second time in the last four months, Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nephews escorted an uncle to his final resting place.

H O R O S C O P E S

ARIES (Mar 21/Apr 20) Are you ready for surprises, Aries? If not, loosen up a little bit because there is a little excitement in store for you. It will come when you least expect it. TAURUS (Apr 21/May 21) You may need an extra dose of patience this week, Taurus. Some difficult tasks are ahead and you will be in charge of getting things back to normal. GEMINI (May 22/Jun 21) Gemini, though many things can induce stress, the infectious sound of children’s laughter will quickly take you out of a slump. Take some time to enjoy the simpler things in life. CANCER (Jun 22/Jul 22) Cancer, some issues that require your attention arise at the office even though you may feel you have already devoted enough time to work responsibilities this week. LEO (Jul 23/Aug 23) A memorable night is on the horizon, Leo. It may be Wednesday or Thursday, so plan to look your best on those days. Romance could be in the air as well. VIRGO(Aug 24/Sept 22) Virgo, before reacting to something this week, take a few deep breaths before saying or doing anything. This way you can be sure you are not engaging in a knee-jerk reaction.

LIBRA (Sept 23/Oct 23) Libra, someone you can trust will be by your side this week when you need the most support. He or she also can help with sorting through financial concerns. SCORPIO (Oct 24/Nov 22) Scorpio, you may need to take a look at your finances and any things you can do to address any issues. Tweak things that have not been working as you had hoped. SAGITTARIUS (Nov 23/Dec 21) Sagittarius, make some concessions if it means keeping the peace around the house. Sometimes you have to simply sit back and let others be in the spotlight. CAPRICORN (Dec 22/Jan 20) Capricorn, take a few moments to think about what you expect from a particular person and then develop a strategy that will bring you to that end. It sounds easy, but it will require effort. AQUARIUS (Jan 21/Feb 18) Sometimes things last, but other times they fizzle away, Aquarius. You may not be able to predict the outcome of everything, but you can take steps to protect the things you want to save. PISCES (Feb 19/Mar 20) Others will quickly figure out that there is no one quite like you, Pisces. You are a great friend to be around.

A local initiative to make some girls’ graduations and proms a dream come true has expanded its efforts to provide even more opportunities for young women. If Wishes Were Dresses is seeking not only gently used dresses and formal wear but also accessories, shoes and other products for young women who cannot afford these items to order to ensure their prom or graduation is perfect. Part of this initiative involves business support. “Something else that we really are striving to get more support from is local businesses. We had quite a number on board last year, we’re hoping to have the same ones on board this year, with hopefully a few more,” said Kait Tuttle, organizer. “The dress is one thing but the dress is not the whole package… sometimes if it’s a strapless

dress they might need a strapless bra because a lot of the girls that we get, a strapless bra is not something that they would have in their closet. So having that brand new bra donated would be great.” Last year, Giant Tiger donated a new bra to one of the girls in the If Wishes Were Dresses program. Another business that donated to the cause was Serendipity Studios, which has agreed to help out again this year. “Last year they did photography for all the graduates, whether it was from elementary or the secondary schools, and then they got a package. (The girls) just contacted Serendipity Studios and said they were with If Wishes for Dresses and she put together a small package for them and they actually got it for free,” said Tuttle. This will be the third year for the If Wishes were Dresses program. Tuttle said the program tripled in the second year and expects to have another

busy and successful year again in 2013. “With being able to get out the information, we’re just finding there seems to be a really strong need in this area for girls who need dresses so we were able to get the information out really well last year,” said Tuttle. The first year the program was in Napanee, about four girls benefitted from it. Last year, the program helped about 12. “We’ve seen great support from the community with the donation of dresses. We maintain our inventory of the dresses that are donated so whatever doesn’t get used from one year gets carried over to the next year. We always have lots of options for the girls to choose from.” Those interested in donating items can contact Tuttle at 613-483-2430. The If Wishes Were Dresses free boutique will be held at the Evangel Temple on May 6-10. Private one-hour appointments can be booked through Tuttle.

Greater Napanee Council Notes

Council quibbles Town eyes waste drop-off options with pending trade agreement G BY ASHLEY FOLEY Staff Reporter

BY SETH DUCHENE Editor

Stone Mills council says it has a problem with at least one of the provisions in the proposed Canada-European Union Trade Agreement. At their regular meeting last Monday night, council passed a resolution calling on the federal government to remove an element included in the draft agreement that would prevent Canadian municipalities from hiring local contractors or make local purchases on tenders over $300,000 if a European competitor came in at a lower price than the local options. “At this point, (it) has clauses in it that would restrict the ability of local municipalities to hire people for contracts based on considerations other than money — (such as) the fact that they were local, (or) that they maybe had an environmental benefit,” said Ward 3 (Camden East) Councillor John Wise, who put the resolution forward for consideration. “There are a number of jurisdictions who are concerned about this agreement, and I just thought it might be a good idea if we let the government know that if the agreement is signed, we still have the freedom to hire or buy whatever we see fit for our municipality. That’s really the substance of this. It may be largely symbolic, but if nobody says anything, then nobody listens.” Ward 1 (Newburgh) rep Kevin Wagar questioned the value of the resolution. “I understand that we want to buy local — and I’ll always say ‘buy local first’ or ‘hire local’, whatever we can do locally — but I’m not sure what we’re achieving by this motion,” he said. “I just think that there is no point in us passing this. I don’t understand why we’re doing it, and I don’t think it’s something we have to do tonight,” Wagar said later. “Is it doing any harm?” asked Reeve Doug Bearance of Wagar. “Why do it?” responded Wagar. Wagar said that, instead of passing its own resolution, the township should express its support for the Association of Municipalities of Ontario, which has raised similar concerns about the deal. “We’re not against CETA,” said Ward 3 Councillor Doug Davison. “Nowhere here does it say we’re against CETA. It says we’re against a certain portion of it that restricts our ability to buy local. That’s all that we’re against. If the federal government wants

to go ahead and sign it, we can’t stop it. But, what we can say is… develop an agreement with (the EU) that doesn’t affect our ability to do our work locally. That’s what we’re asking for.” The resolution passed with Wagar offering the only dissenting vote. In other Stone Mills council news: n It appears as though Stone Mills council is poised to take pass on introducing a new planning regime that would replace the township’s zoning bylaw with a new ‘development permit’ system. Development permits are intended to streamline the approval of planning items such as minor variances. Although development permits are common in urban municipalities, a small but growing number of rural municipalities are adopting the system. However, after a special planning meeting last week and in receiving a package of information on the development permit system at their regular meeting on Monday night, some councillors said that while development permits have merit, they’re not something council should consider at this time. Adopting the system would require a $25,000-$30,000 cost to the municipality; further, the township is about two-thirds finished with an update and revision of its current Zoning Bylaw. Time and money spent on that process to date would have been for naught if the township shifted gears, some councillors argued. “Let’s get the amendments done to our Official Plan and get our Zoning Bylaw (done)… and when we look at our Official Plan and Zoning Bylaw down the road, during the next go-around, maybe that’s the time to bring this in. But I can’t see it right now,” said Ward 3 (Camden East) Councillor Clarence Kennedy. Ward 3 Councillor Doug Davison also pointed out that the municipality only had to deal with a “handful of minor variances” in the past year. “When you look at the fact there really isn’t a burning need for it, you look at the fact that we already have (the Zoning Bylaw) two-thirds completed and paid for, and you look at the fact that this is going to cost $25-30,000… the scales just don’t balance at this time. I think we move on with what we have, and wait until there’s a bigger need.” Council will make a final decision on whether or not to adopt development permits at its next regular meeting.

REATER Napanee council is investigating options for this year’s free large item drop-off events, as storage and space is limited for the Roblin garbage disposal location. Meaghan Davey presented council with a report requesting the 2013 free large item drop off program continue only in the South Fredericksburgh Waste Disposal Site and cancelled in the Roblin location. It was stated a large item drop off event would be too excessive to practically be disposed in Roblin, since $300 bins are required and space is limited. Mayor Gordon Schermerhorn said the Ministry of Environment also has requested there be fewer garbage disposals along and near the Salmon River, to which the Roblin landfill is adjacent. Council agreed there must be something implemented north of Napanee to ensure large items are removed for safety as well as to increase property values. Schermerhorn suggested all properties north of the 401 continue to take their large items to Roblin, while all others, including those within Napanee, take their large items to South Fredericksburgh. Davey has been requested to research this option, as well as other

options to pursue, and bring another recommendation back to council. In other Greater Napanee council news: n Index and annual adjustment of development charge: Council approved an index and annual adjustment development change at their last meeting. Maintaining this change ensures financial stability for growth-related portions of the municipality’s capital needs in the future. Statistics Canada recently published the index and annual adjustment of development charges is 2.53 per cent, which council adopted. n Master fire plan: Fire Chief Terry Gervais presented Greater Napanee Town Council with a proposed master fire plan. A report was presented in May 2011, on the Operational Review of the Fire Services, which stated a new master fire plan was last done in December 2005 and needed updating. A committee, consisting of General Manager/Fire Chief Gervais, Deputy Chief Shetler, Assistant Chief Koenig and facilitator Chris Powers, a retired fire chief, has come up with a new master fire plan. Financial implications amounted to $8,000 from the 2013 operating budget. Council accepted the presentation for information. n Drinking water annual report: Meaghan Davey presented the Town of Greater Napanee with a report for

the Napanee, the Sandhurst Shores and the North Fredericksburgh community centre drinking water systems. It was determined that there were no financial, accessible, or information technology implications for these water systems. All water systems passed the compliance inspection and are deemed safe for drinking. n Sewer relief charges: Council accepted a report presented by staff that the current policy of sewer relief be terminated but the current practice of negotiating customer friendly payment plans continue. Payment plans are typically arranged upon request for abnormally high water consumption within one billing period. It is also recommended that any extreme cases be presented to council on a case-by-case basis. n Roblin church: David Morgan, General Manager for Infrastructure Services, and Susan Beckel, Greater Napanee Clerk, presented a proposal that town staff assist the Roblin cemetery board with accounting and book keeping. The Roblin cemetery board will continue to manage the annual operations and active burial program. Part of this agreement includes ongoing full reports to council of all active and inactive cemeteries in the town in order to determine the long range plans for maintenance and care. Council supported this agreement.

Twosome to hit links for second ‘Longest Day’ BY ADAM PRUDHOMME Staff Reporter

Back after a year of rest and recovery, local golfers Dave Pinnell Jr. and Jamie Cybulski are ready to once again tee off for the Longest Day of Golf in support of L&A Hospice. The two golfers plan to hit the links at the Napanee Golf and Country Club sometime in June at sunrise, playing through until sunset. In exchange for their gruelling challenge, they’re asking for members of the public to support them by offering pledges to Hospice Lennox and Addington. The endeavour is a continuation from last year, when they battled the scorching June weather to sink 145 holes each. “Once we got started and starting rolling through it was fine,” said Pinnell Jr. “(The toughest part) was the nervousness of it, wondering if we can make it. It was an extremely hot day last year, but we made it through.” With a little experience under their belt, they hope to top last year’s output this coming June. “There are some areas that we can improve,” said Pinnell Jr. “The players that were on the course while we were out there were very graceful at stepping aside and letting us play through. That wasn’t a problem, but I think maybe we can hustle a bit more and definitely this year we’ll be beating that

goal. By how much, we’re not sure yet.” They’re also hoping to improve on last year’s fundraising tally as well, which was about $2,000 raised for Hospice. To help kickstart their fundraising cause, they'll be hosting a trivia night at the Napanee Legion on April 18, starting at 6 p.m. For $20 teams of four can enter the contest, which will consist of questions about the local area. The top three teams will earn a prize, as will the team that finishes dead last. They’ve set up a Facebook page titled Trivia Night in Support of Jamie and Dave’s Longest Day of Golf. Anyone interested in joining can e-mail Jamie@myfmradio.ca or Dave.pinnelljr@century21.ca. No date has been set for when they'll tackle the second annual Longest Day of Golf, but they are planning for June. They are working with Milt Rose at the NGCC on a firm date. In the meantime they are open to collecting pledges as well as talking to anyone who may want to volunteer on the day. They’re looking for people who would be willing to drive a cart ahead of them and explain their cause to any golfers ahead of them in hopes they’ll let them play through. For more information on how to donate, contact the L&A Hospice at 613-354-0833.

SHOP | ‘We’re going under. I don’t see any way that we’re not’ CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 “Now instead of losing $1,500 a month, I’m losing everything because there’s no income to offset the costs,” said Stephen. “We’re going under. I don’t see any way that we’re not going under.” He said that after a month of vacancy, their insurance policy would likely double. A few months later the insurance company will void the policy altogether. “Then whether or not I’m bankrupt, the mortgage company in Toronto will foreclose. Or, it could cost an extra $1,000 a month for insurance due to the risk,” said Stephen. “Right now I’m thinking Anne’s business is done. It’s done. There’s no doubt in my mind that it’s done.” He feels even if they opened shop someplace else, the fence and publicity has scared off most of their loyal customers. His wife Anne, who has run Pie in the Sky for five years, was emotional and reluctant to let her business go. “It’s taken me five years to build the business up,” Anne said. “It’s not about money, it’s about me staying in my building that I grew for five years and I don’t want it taken away.” The Hulls feel they are being tossed the short end of the stick: owning only part of the building

deemed unsafe by the town. They say the building’s decay is due to problems that are not on the side of the building they own. Pie in the Sky owns building 117 on John Street, while the other half, 115, belongs to the estate of a man who died last year. The Hulls say they are not sure who is handling the business now. “Regrettably, 115 John Street has been abandoned and no one has stepped forward to contribute to the cost of its repair,” the town announced in a press release last week. The Hulls say they contacted the Town of Greater Napanee by letter and phone for more than a year, informing them of issues to 115 including a bowed out back wall. They said they never received a response until after the wall collapsed on Nov. 11, 2012. “I reported a year ago in March that the building was damaged at the rear… Nobody ever got back to me,” said Stephen, who sent a letter to each town councillor about the issue. “That building has been in failure for five years and the reason is (that) there’s no eavestrough, the roof is sloped back, so anytime it rains the water comes over the roof and into the brick and limestone and into our bathroom, which is also

broken now,” said Stephen. He said after the adult video business failed, the building was rented out as a rooming house and decayed quickly, greatly affecting the Hull’s portion of the building. Terry Gervais, Greater Napanee Fire Chief, said the issue is delicate and complicated. But regardless of how many owners there may be, the building has been declared unsafe and prioritizes public safety above all else. “The key is that it’s one building with two owners. So the building is actually one complete building so it’s not one building versus another building, it’s one building,” said Gervais. “The initial issue that was brought to our attention was for (John St.) 115. That’s where we started. When the engineer went in and looked at that they said, ‘Yeah, 115 is a problem’, once we found there was a problem with 115, because it’s one building, then we had an engineer look at the entire structure, both 115 and 117,” said Gervais. It was at this point that the entire building was labeled as “at risk.” Last Tuesday, the Hulls were given 48 hours to erect a fence around the building but did not do so. Consequently the town erected a fence on Friday, forcing the business to close shortly after noon and for Anne to close her

doors. The Hulls have taken the town to court and moved the case from small claims to superior court on Monday. Stephen said they are seeking legal counsel but are having a hard time finding a lawyer that will go up against the municipality. “A guy (lawyer) in Kingston said, ‘You can’t win this case, you can’t force them to fix the building,’ but I think I can. They (the town) want that building,” said Stephen. Stephen and Anne said they didn’t want to have to take the town to court but feel they have been left no other choice. They feel it is fair to receive financial aid from the town for the months their rental unit sat vacant under the municipality’s order, and also for the cost of closing their café and ignoring their complaints regarding 115’s decaying structure in the first place. The Hulls have been in negotiations with the Town of Greater Napanee regarding the matter, but have not yet reached an agreement. Gervais said the town did not have a responsibility to get involved prior to the wall collapsing, as the town does not own the building. Once the issue became a safety hazard, though, it did become the

town’s responsibility to ensure public safety. “We don’t want to see a business close either and council is very supportive of the downtown core and all our businesses but they’re not going to do that at the risk of public safety, which we believe is the case in this building,” said Gervais. The building was built in the 19th century. Though Town of Greater Napanee Mayor Gordon Schermerhorn could not comment on the issue, he did say public safety is a primary concern. “I can’t talk about Pie in the Sky because we’re going to court… I’m not going to say anything that will put the town in jeopardy. We just did it for public safety because our

engineer said the building is unsafe and that’s all I can say,” said Schermerhorn. Gervais said the Hulls are not the only ones affected, though they are arguably suffering the largest setbacks. The fence blockade passes through other business’s parking lots as well as town property. “The building sits on a footprint and the building actually has no land,” said Gervais. “The fencing unfortunately affects five different owners, the two building owners and then the two parking lots and then the town out front with the sidewalk and the two parking spots.

Deseronto Council

‘Fun lacrosse’ session set for this Sunday Not a ‘happy budget’: Mayor Beginners welcome to participate BY ADAM PRUDHOMME Staff Reporter

The Kingston Lacrosse Association is holding another registration night before opening house league play in Napanee in April. “So far, registration has gone well,” said Seth DuChene, a local parent who has been working with the KLA over the past few months to bring house league lacrosse to Napanee. “We’ve been really encouraged by the number of families looking to give lacrosse a try.” The KLA is hoping to establish at least one house league team in every age and gender category to play against Kingston house league teams. Napanee’s ‘home games’ will take place at the Lennox Agricultural Memorial Centre — the old Napanee arena on York Street. Both boys and girls between the ages of 3-17 are invited to participate. The next registration session will take place at the York Street centre from 4-7 p.m. this Sunday. In addition to the registration session, players new to the sport can also give it a try on the arena floor with a free informal ‘fun lacrosse’ session. Lacrosse or hockey gloves and helmets are required. Children born in 2003 or younger should attend the first session from 4-5:30 p.m., while children born in 2002 or

older should attend the second session from 5:30 to 7 p.m. “Children don’t need to have any experience in lacrosse to participate,” said DuChene. “We’re trying to introduce this sport to the area, so there will be a lot of beginners out there, I’m sure.” Cost to register for the house league season is $150. Play takes place from mid-April to the end of June. Children born in 2003 or younger will get a new, free lacrosse stick upon registration. Those who are unable to attend the March 24 session can also register online at kingstonlacrosse.com. They can also attend a series of similar registration and free activity sessions at Frontenac Secondary School in Kingston on Wednesday and Thursday evenings until midApril. Children born in 2000 or older should attend the Wednesday night sessions, while children born in 2001 or younger should attend the Thursday night sessions. Children will also be able to register for lacrosse at the upcoming L&A Sports and Leisure Showcase, set to take place at Southview Public School on March 22 from 5-7 p.m. and on March 23 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Additional information can be found at kingston lacrosse.com.

Deseronto council says this year’s budget is sure to disappoint some residents. Mayor Norman Clark said council will be faced with some very tough decisions, which may come down to cutting services or raising taxes. “If you’re looking for a happy budget this year, it isn’t going to be a happy budget,” Clark said to council and members of the community during a council meeting on Tuesday. “It’s going to be a tight budget the following years, too. I don’t see things getting any better for the next three or four years.” He said council is “trying very hard to bring the budget down as low” as possible but council may need to reconsider some services and programs. “There’s the essential services we have to provide so we have to look at them and then the other finances will be looked at,” said Clark. “I’ve come to the conclusion that there are going to be decisions we’re going to have to make that won’t be popular in any way.” Clark said the town is in a “unique” position, as there are developers interested in developing in Deseronto but are not able to “for certain reasons.” Policing costs and land claim issues also play a role in their difficulties. “I’m getting really peeved off. I think it’s time that we started going to our provincial and our federal government. We’ve been caught in the crossfire and nobody

seems to be doing anything to help us. We’ve asked for help from several places and we’ve had no response so far,” said Clark. He fears if the town continues the way it has been, council will not be able to operate much longer. “If we don’t get help with development in Deseronto or some sort of compensation for the hardships the residents of this town has gone through for the past several years, I can see a point where we will have to take the keys to the provincial or the federal government and say, ‘Here are the keys.’ There’s only so much we can do.” Councillor Dan Johnston said the town still has a lot of fight left in them yet. “We are still open for business, we are still open for development. We are a resilient little town and we’re not going anywhere,” said Johnston. Clark said he is not interested in raising taxes any further and also does not want to compromise services. He feels the provincial and federal government have a responsibility to assist Deseronto. “We’re fed up with the increases we have to give in terms of a budget if we want the same services. This council is going to have to look seriously at the services we’re providing. If the community wants those services then we’re all going to have to face the fact that the taxes will go up substantially. If we don’t want to have our taxes go up substantially, then we will have to do without some of the services and I’m sure that won’t make some of the community members very happy,” he said. “I feel that we’re at a point right now where we have to

make those crucial decisions this year. We can’t continue with our financial situation the way it’s going.” Deputy Mayor Clarence Zieman’s largest concern was policing costs, stating Deseronto pays more than the Town of Greater Napanee, Hastings County and other neighbouring municipalities. The Town of Deseronto currently pays about a half a million dollars for policing services. “If we work to pay a fair share then we can decrease that budget by at least $100,000. It’s totally unfair,” said Zieman. Though he admitted he is not convinced the “government will ever do anything about it,” he said the town should put their foot down about paying a lower fee. Clark did say Deseronto is not the only municipality dealing with such hardships in this budget. Still, he and council will work hard to ensure they provide the best budget they can. “One thing you can be sure of is that this council will provide the best budget it can with providing the best services we can afford to give the community. Hopefully as the years go by things with change with the provincial government and the municipal level.” The town will hold another closed-session budget meeting in early April and hope to have a draft of the budget available May 8 or 9. It will be posted on their website and available at the town office by request. Community members will have an opportunity to bring forward concerns for consideration at that time. Council hopes to officially pass the 2013 budget by late May.

A Lasting Impression Your Stamped Decorative Finish Experts! 5 tips to get the most out of your lawn ONCRETE

CEMENT FINISHING

LUS INC

(NC)—Sometimes the grass really is greener — and more manageable. According to Scott Ride from Husqvarna, the world’s largest producer of outdoor power products, “Lawn maintenance can be frustrating for homeowners, but it doesn’t have to be. Anyone can achieve a great looking, stress-free lawn with the right practices, tools and materials.” These tips from the pros will set you up for nothing but success: n Mow frequently with sharp blades. The key is frequent cutting, which forces the turf to grow thick and keep out weeds. Keep mower blades sharp so the grass isn’t battered and made susceptible to disease. n Don’t go too short. Remember not to cut the grass too short. With a grass level

D L

of 5-9 cm you will have a fine, sustainable lawn. n Keep the mulch. Leave the clippings on your lawn. Not only do you eliminate the time to bag and dump the mulch, but the clippings fertilize the soil and lawn. n Avoid watering at night. Be sure to let the grass dry out before the dew falls, since extended moisture invites disease. The best time to water is pre-dawn or early morning. n Grow thick grass. Get rid of any weeds as early as possible.The best defense against pests, weeds and diseases is to grow thick, vigorous turf.

Spring into home improvement OW that winter is at its end, or at least we hope it is anytime soon, spring is soon to begin its reign. After a long, dark winter, spring’s bright sun and warm winds are a breath of fresh air. But with all that sunshine, it spotlights your leaf-filled gutters, cracked sidewalks, and the dead plants in last year’s flower beds. Now is a good time to access if there’s any winter damage to your home and make plans for spring improvement projects. Here are a few areas to make note of, and that could also return a good profit on investment if you are thinking of selling in the future. Repair your Roof With the amount of snow we have had this year, your home’s roof may have suffered damage such as moisture seeping in between the cracks and creases. Your roof is your home’s No. 1 defense against the elements. Even a small issue on the top of your house can lead to major damage indoors if water is allowed to enter the attic or walls. Take a look at your roof from the ground to see if any shingles have blown out of place during the winter storm. You may have had water leaking in your kitchen this winter, now is the time to investigate the source of the problem. Although you may think to look right above the leak, water can travel a long way along beams. Small repairs can be an easy DIY improvement, but larger issues may need to be done by the professionals. Update the Siding All winter long, you were nicely keeping warm inside, while outside your home’s exterior was enduring the winter’s harsh temperatures and intense weather conditions. Replacing a warped or loose piece of siding is a home improvement project that can be completed on a sunny spring afternoon. If your siding is older, you may consider updating

N

your siding with a more energy efficient and easyto-maintain product, such as vinyl siding that helps insulate your house and is easy to clean with a hose and brush.

Design Time Check and clean Windows Cleaning your windows costs you only time and effort, but the reward is well worth it. Starting spring off with crystal clear windows is rewarding, let as much sunlight in as possible. Replacing broken window panes is inexpensive and goes a long way to making your home more attractive and energy efficient. Strong winds combined with the freezing and thawing of the typical Canadian winter in colder parts of the country may have cracked a few of your window panes. Take a walk around your house and visually inspect all of your windows. Also check your windows sills for water damage or deterioration, painting or replacing damaged window trim. Update your Rain Gutters Without rain gutters, our homes are defenseless against the raging rain storms. The water from rain could erode the soil around the foundation, splash dirt onto the siding of the house and leak into the basement causing internal damage to the house. Gutters and drain pipes are relatively inex-

pensive to replace and well worth the effort in keeping your home cozy and dry. Another easy home improvement fix is to install gutter guards in the spring to keep fall leaves from clogging your gutters. Inspect your Air Conditioner Summer follows spring and we’re going to need our air conditioners more than ever — it’s expected to be a hot summer this year. It’s a good idea to have your central air conditioning system inspected before it starts to get too hot. Your air conditioner not only keeps your home cool during the hot summer months, it also dehumidifies your house and keeps mold from developing inside the walls. During the inspection, ask about installing a UV light inside the air conditioner to keep mold and other germs from developing. Add Insulation If your home wasn’t as warm as you would have liked it to be this winter, perhaps it’s time to beef up insulation in your attic. Adding an extra layer of fiberglass insulation on the floor of your attic is another easy home improvement project and can help keep the heated air from escaping through the attic. It also makes your home cooler in the summer. Attic insulation helps to keep the top of your house a constant temperature,

which is useful in preventing ice dams, a major source of winter damage. Build a Deck Decks allow you to fully enjoy the sun and serve as a great place for socializing and dining. Decks come in all sizes and can be built in a short time with pressure treated wood that withstands everything the

Canadian weather can throw at it. Let the energy of spring be thrown into the improvement of your home. Not only does this make your house more secure and attractive, the effort and expense you invest today on home improvements can save you big repair and energy dollars

A clean home is cheaper to run (NC)—With spring around the corner, homeowners are sweeping, dusting and vacuuming everywhere to get a clean start on the season. Did you know that most household dirt goes undetected and over the years it can build up and make it more expensive to heat and cool your home? By following these three simple tips, offered by the Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Institute of Canada, you can clean up, save money, and breathe easy: n Filter your air: We filter our swimming pools to make sure they're free of dirt and debris – we need to do the same for our indoor air. There are two types of filters that can help you remove stray particles from your indoor atmosphere: mechanical devices that draw air through a filter and electronic devices that use different types of fields to purify the air. Whatever option you choose, proper installation and maintenance is critical so consult a licensed contractor. n Get rid of dust: Dust gets everywhere. It can even get into your home’s air ducts or your furnace’s filter. A clogged filter

makes your furnace work harder, and can become a breeding ground for bacteria. If you clean your vents and your ducts, there will be less dust in the air, less work for your HVAC system, and more money in your pocket. You might be able to change the filter yourself and you should do so on a regular basis. Cleaning ducts, on the other hand, takes specialized knowledge, as does maintenance of electronic air cleaners, so engage a reputable contractor. n Get the latest and greatest: If you’ve got an older house, the heating and cooling system may be less energy-efficient than current systems, costing you more money than necessary. Regular maintenance will keep these older machines operating to their full potential, but sometimes, the best solution is to trade up to a more energy-efficient, Energy Star rated system. More information is available online at www.hrai.ca.

Build a solid relationship with your contractor tradespeople, and has made you aware of all the necessary building permits. Finally, do some online research on the contractor, and check the Consumer Beware List ( w w w. o n t a r i o . c a / C o n sumerBeware) to see if he or she has been the subject of a consumer complaint or legal action. Second, get your contract in writing: Your contractor should give you a written agreement listing in detail all the work to be completed, the timelines, and the payment schedule. Under the table, cash-only deals may seem great, but what happens when things don't go as planned and, in the worst case scenario, you attempt to take legal action against a contractor? Without a contract, it is hard to prove wrongdoing. Any responsible contractor knows that a written agreement protects both parties. Third, know your rights

and responsibilities about how and what a contractor can charge you. Did you know that under Ontario law, home renovation companies cannot charge you more than 10 percent above the price of a written estimate without a change order that you agree to? And did you know that if you sign any deal with a contractor in your home, you have a 10-day “coolingoff” period to change your mind and cancel? These are just two consumer rights in Ontario that are useful to be aware of when dealing with a contractor on a home-renovations project. There is a lot to consider when thinking about home renovations – but when they are successful, it's a win-win situation for both the homeowner and the contractor.

Tips and tricks to get your home Spring-ready, safely wires, gas and water mains are located and plan where to dig accordingly. Plan before you update: Doing home renovations this spring? Be sure to plan ahead and know the safety risks associated with doing work in the home. If you're planning to do the work

yourself, remember you'll need a permit from the Electrical Safety Authority. To keep you and your family safe, hire a licensed electrical contractor to do the electrical work. For more tips on how to stay safe during your spring cleanup please visit: www.esasafe.com. newscanada.com.

(NC)—Rising temperatures and melting snow mean that Spring has finally sprung. For many Ontarians this marks the beginning of the ultimate chore season: spring cleaning. Before you grab the cleaning supplies and spring into action, step back and think about what safety measures to take when cleaning up the house – inside and out. “When it comes to maintaining your home after a long winter, safety is key,” says Doug Crawford, Chief Public Safety Officer for the Electrical Safety Authority. “It's important to stay aware of electrical hazards, particularly overhead and underground powerlines, when planning your spring cleaning and yard work. Taking the appropriate precautions can help to avoid tragic accidents. Follow these safety tips during your spring cleanup: Look up, look out: Whether you are clearing out the eaves troughs, painting the exterior of your house or trimming the trees, remember to look out for electrical safety hazards, such as overhead powerlines. Know where powerlines run across your property and avoid working closely around them. Also, carry your ladder horizontally. It's easier on your back and is safer when working around powerlines. Think before you dig: You spent all winter dreaming about your new back deck. But before you start digging, know the hazards. Check with your local electricity distribution or utility company to mark where underground

(NC)—People do home renovations for many reasons, but the one constant – no matter what type of project you are planning – is playing it smart when it comes to dealing with contractors. And that's why the Ontario Ministry of Consumer Services offers these helpful tips: First, find a contractor you trust: Ask friends and family to recommend a contractor they've had success with, preferably one they've worked with on a project similar to yours. When you've found a contractor, ask for at least three references – again from people who have done projects like yours. If possible, visit the references' homes and take a look at the renovations for yourself. Ensure that the contractor has all the right licences – for gas installation, electrical work, plumbing and the like – to do your job, or a clear plan for sub-contracting that work to licenced

Tips for getting those Spring windows clean Dirty windows are unsightly, and they can prevent beneficial sunlight from entering a home. Cleaning windows need not be done every week, but it shouldn't be overlooked completely, either. While it certainly may be a chore to clean windows, there are ways to make the task much more tolerable. Curb appeal can be very important when selling a home. Even a home with a perfectly manicured lawn and the newest roofing and siding can seem unappealing if the windows are dirty. Keeping windows clean requires a good deal of work. For the acrophobics, cleaning second-story windows can test the nerves. Having the right tools on hand and a strategy in place will make the job easier to manage. Cleaning windows Cleaning windows won't necessarily be easy, but the following nine-step process can make the task less difficult and time-consuming. 1. Choose a day when it is overcast so you will not be blinded by the sun while cleaning. This also helps prevent streaking. Begin by gathering what you'll need to get the task done. Having everything at the ready will enable you to move from one window to the next. Here are the basic supplies you will need: n cleaning solution

n cloth, newspaper or squeegee n towel n spray bottle n extension pole to reach high windows n vacuum n ladder or step stool n garden hose 2. Take down and clean drapery or blinds when cleaning the windows. Remove the curtains so you will have an unobstructed surface with which to work. 3. Start with the interior side of the windows, as they are easier to access. Place a towel on the sill to catch any drops so the sill or the floor will stay dry. 4. Spray a lint-free cloth or the window directly with the cleaning solution. The edges and corners of the window tend to accumulate the most grime, so begin by cleaning those areas first. Once they are clean and you will not exchange dirt to the center of the window, work on the middle. Wipe the windows in a horizontal direction to help alleviate dripping. 5. To create a streak-free surface, some people prefer to use a squeegee to drag out any pockets of moisture for more even drying. Be sure to wipe the rubber strip of the squeegee after each pass on the window. You may choose to buff out any other streaks with newspaper. 6. Vacuum the window sill and frame afterward to catch any dust and debris.

7. Repeat the process for all interior windows. 8. Move outdoors and start off by spraying the window with a garden hose to loosen any of the accumulated grime. Use your cleaning solution to dissolve the rest of the dirt. You may want to let it sit on the window if there is stubborn grime. Repeat the cleaning process used indoors for each window. 9. If exterior second-floor windows are hard to reach, consider using a ladder and extension pole to extend your reach. Upper windows will not be scrutinized as closely as lower windows, so you may have a greater margin for error. If the windows are simply too high up, rely on a professional window cleaner to get the job done rather than risk falls or other injuries. Mix your own cleaning solution It may take trial and error to find a solution that works. Here is one recipe you may want to start with: 1 cup white vinegar 11/2 cups rubbing alcohol 2 drops of dish soap Pour into a clean and empty spray bottle. Remember: Never mix bleach and ammonia together to create a cleaning solution, as toxic fumes will result.

for Spring Cleaning Clean windows inside and out Dust everything, including ceiling fans and other hard to reach places Vacuum in crevices and under cushions of upholstered furniture Vacuum and shampoo carpets and rugs Wipe down walls, doors and door jams Clean behind/under stove and fridge Reorganize and wipe inside all cupboards Wipe down all cupboard doors, inside and out Dust inside china cabinets and hutches Wash all bedding especially pillows, shams and quilts Rotate/flip mattresses Switch to summer bedding, throws and linens. Wash and put away winter linens. Wash and put away winter clothing Dust and clean computers, televisions and electronics Clean out dryer vent 

Your kitchen is the hub of it all (NC) There's no denying that the kitchen has evolved in recent years to become the heart of every home. As family dynamics continue to shift, it is increasingly important to ensure the efficiency of your space for daily routines. Small kitchen upgrades not only improve the value of oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kitchen, but more importantly, they provide a meeting place for family and friends to spend time together. Lighting can dramatically change the mood of a kitchen so be sure to consider the use of the space and select an item that represents style and function. With varying options, like pendants, under-cabinet lighting, or dramatic chandeliers, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something for every style. Flooring also plays a large part in kitchen design. Many designers agree that a continuation of hardwood into the kitchen creates the illusion of a larger space. Alternatively, tiles or stone can make for an easy cleanup and bring a sense of warmth. Whether it is used for kitchen prep, a homework station or to serve meals, the kitchen island certainly plays a key role. Consider functional elements such as

drawers, nooks, and even a second sink if room permits, to ensure the space can accommodate your family's needs. Appliances add the finishing touch to any kitchen. Whether your style is traditional, transitional or contemporary, many brands offer styles and finishes that will work. Small appliances, such as the faucet, also contribute to the overall look and feel of a kitchen. Harris/Decima recently polled families across Canada and learned that the faucet is the small kitchen appliance used most frequently by those surveyed. Accordingly, it is essential for households to make sure they have a faucet that complements their routine. Features such as Touch2O Technology from Delta Faucet can help you prep food, wash hands and clean dishes without spreading food messes from surface to surface. With some simple adjustments, you can make your kitchen a warm and friendly hub. A simple combination of efficiency and style will go a long way in this space. www.newscanada.com.

HOME IMPROVEMENT / 7

Garage organization: Back to basics Garages are coveted by homeowners across the country, offering a space to park a car and protect it from the elements. But many people do not park a car in their garage, only to find the garage become a home to clutter. Garages tend to become the official catch-all of a home. When an item cannot be crammed into a hiding space elsewhere, it often ends up dumped into the garage, where it joins the long list of other abandoned items. It can be easy to let garages become a wasteland because everything put inside a garage is behind a closed door. That mess can quickly build up, and reclaiming your garage requires energy, time, organization, and a plan. Organizing a garage will take some time. An entire weekend or two consecutive days may be necessary depending on the level of disarray. Taking everything out of the garage and going through the sorting process may take the most time. When sorting, separate any broken items, which can immediately be put at the curb for trash pick-up. Examine things that you have not used in some time. If you haven’t missed it, there’s a good chance

that you can discard the item or donate it. Create separate piles for donations and trash. Move the items that will be kept into a separate pile. After all of the trash and donations are removed from the premises, then you can look at what is remaining and begin planning out a more organized storage system. There may be things in the ‘keep’ pile that are simply out of place in the garage and may be better stored elsewhere. Think about which items can be moved to a basement or attic because of their infrequency of use, such as holiday decorations, suitcases, and collectibles. You may prefer to move lawn and garden items out of the garage and into a shed in the backyard. After completing the sorting process, look at the garage as a blank space and measure out the room that you have. This will provide an empty canvas as a starting off point. To maximize the amount of space you have as a work area or a place to park your car, invest in as many tools as possible to utilize vertical space. Shelving, hooks and cabinetry will take things off of the floor, while storage units with doors can hide items that lack

aesthetic appeal. Rolling tool caddies and cabinets can keep all tools neat and in organized drawers so you're never hunting and pecking for a tool again. A cabinet that has a lock and key can be utilized for dangerous chemicals that need to be kept out of the hands of children and away from pets. Think about how the garage will appear from the curb when the door is raised and create a design that will be functional and neat. Take the opportunity while the garage is empty to give walls and floors a fresh coat of paint and improve the lighting in the garage. A brighter garage makes for a better work station. For those who can use a little extra help, there are professional garage organization companies that can come in and install custom cabinetry and work surfaces. This is an option if you desire a high-end garage. When putting items back into the garage, label where everything is stored until you become accustomed to the new organization. This way you'll be able to find everything easily. Organizing a garage can be tedious, but the reward is ultimately worth the effort. • Interior Design • Home Staging • Window Treatments • Organization • Painting • Colour Consultations
