Village reels following gun rampage Tamworth stunned after incident leaves two dead, two injured BY ASHLEY ESPINOZA Staff Reporter

AST Wednesday, the village of Tamworth experienced the unthinkable when a stunning chain of events led to the deaths of two men, and sent a man and woman to hospital with serious injuries. As for the rest of the community, it was left in shock and disbelief. “I grew up here and I’ve always felt safe in Tamworth and now that’s not the way I feel anymore,” said Angie Fowler, who owns the Grindstone Restaurant downtown and lives in Tamworth. Seventy-year-old Charles (McLeod) Thomas, of Erinsville, was found dead at his home. Morton Lewis, 59, died in an apparent suicide shortly after he is alleged to have rampaged through the village, viciously attacking one woman and shooting and injuring a local firefighter. “Call the police, McLeod’s been murdered,” is what Lewis shouted through a screen door at the Hannah Funeral Home around 5 p.m. last Wednesday, Brenda Hannah explained in an interview with The Beaver. She said her husband, Lindsey, was unable to unlock the door since the man was pulling on it from the other side. He had not yet

L

noticed that the man at the door was covered in blood. “Then he got in his red pickup truck and drove away,” said Brenda. After the interview, she closed the door saying, “I’m going to keep this door locked all the time now.” After that, Lewis is alleged to have driven to the village post office, threatening a postal worker and attacking a female motorist after colliding with her vehicle more than once. The woman was sent to hospital with a broken ankle. The man also shot a firefighter in the arm and drove his truck through the garage of a home. “It just shakes you, it shakes everything. I am definitely not as relaxed. And now I’m going to be second-guessing everybody, no matter who you are, which is sad,” said Fowler last Thursday. Fowler said she knew both of the deceased men. While Tamworth was crawling with police and reporters, Fowler could not bring herself to walk around the corner to the post office to see one of the scenes of crime for herself. “You see everybody around, and the reporters, but I still can’t believe it’s happened,” said Fowler. “I just drive home and I drive straight here to work.”

Protesters push for investigation

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 Fowler normally works alone but was accompanied by her husband Thursday morning after the incident. “I’ve always been one that felt that I could take care of myself, but when someone’s got a gun, it doesn’t matter who you are. What are you going to do? I don’t feel safe anymore in our little village,” she said. But Fowler is confident the residents of Tamworth will be able to come together and help one another through this shocking event. “We’ll get through it as a community, like a couple of my friends said, ‘Tamworth is strong, we will all come together,’ but it sure has shaken a lot of us,” she said. Some Tamworth locals have turned to social media to show their support for the community. Shortly after the event, Shari Milligan proposed an event on Facebook that was shared and supported by Fowler and a number of other Tamworth locals. “Well folks, let’s start to heal our wonderful town! Next Wednesday, March 5 at 6 p.m (after public skating) anyone interested can meet at the arena and we’ll have a walk around the village,” the post read. The walk was designed to bring the community together to grieve and support each other together. Fowler said she knew Lewis and Thomas (McLeod) and said they were both friendly. After visiting with Thomas at her restaurant a few weeks ago, he said he would be back soon but she never saw him again. Thomas has been described as sickly and fragile by members of the community and was known to have lived in a barn in Erinsville after his house burned down. As for Lewis, some who knew him say he was “a nice man” and “don’t know why he snapped.” “He was a good man. I don’t know what happened to him. I’m not defending him and my heart goes out to the families. Why he snapped and the way he snapped, I don’t know,” said Tammy Wilson, a Tamworth resident who described Lewis as a family friend. “He wasn’t psycho. He was last (Wednesday) night, but not before that,” said Wilson. “He just went crazy. It doesn’t make sense to me.” The province’s Special Investigation Unit continues to investigate the incident.

Blockade organizers want inquiry into missing native women

BY ADAM PRUDHOMME Staff Reporter

Demanding an inquiry into unsolved missing and murdered First Nations women cases across Canada, about 80 Tyendinaga Mohawk protestors set up road blocks on Shannonville Road between Hinchey Road and Airport Parkway. Under heavy surveillance from the OPP and Tyendinaga Police Service, activists set up a teepee in the middle of the road early Monday morning. A second blockade was also set up on Shannonville Road on the north side of Hwy. 2. Citing public safety the OPP also closed a section of Wyman Road between Hwy 2 and Callaghan Road due to the presence of a few people on the side of the road sitting around a fire. The actions didn’t exactly come as a surprise as well known Mohawk activist Shawn Brant promised something would happen if the federal government made no indication of launching an inquiry by last Friday. “I think it’s been going really well,” Brant said of the protest on Tuesday. “We came in with a plan and we’ve been following that and its been working really well.” OPP Sgt. Kristine Rae has maintained from the start of the protest that police are aware of the situation and warned that anyone involved in criminal activity would be held accountable. She stated the OPP would use a “measured response that considers the safety of the public, protesters and the police.”

“We have a bit of a history together so we have a mutual understanding and respect,” Brant said of the OPP, who he says so far have just observed. “That allows us to get through situations like this. We don’t necessarily have to have contact, that respect provides enough understanding.” Brant maintains that the purpose of the protest is to create a stage and environment that will lead to the discussion of the cause. “We sort of feel that the issue of murdered missing women is something that hasn’t been talked about and has been held in

silence the past decade or so,” said Brant. “We want to create an environment and forum that would generate that discussion and allow for an opportunity for the families that have lost sisters, daughters and mothers to be able to come out with their stories and speak to that.” Brant says there’s no timetable for how long the blockade is planned to last, but says he wants it to be as short as possible. He says they aren’t handing out pamphlets as was first reported by the OPP, but they are willing to talk to any members of the community who are curious as to why they’re out there.

Brant says residents of the road are granted access to the road. “We don’t see failure as an option,” said Brant. “We see a national action plan and a government inquiry as the most minimum response that the government should be taking given the circumstances of 824 dead First Nation women.” Brant says the action stems from the Canadian government’s September decision not to launch an inquiry despite the fact the United Nations’ Human Rights Council and several First Nations groups urged the government to take action on the issue.

SPWC swamped with winter waterfowl Bad weather to blame for record number of swans and other birds being housed at shelter

BY ASHLEY ESPINOZA Staff Reporter

Sue Meech said the Sandy Pines Wildlife Centre has taken in more swans and waterfowl this winter than ever before, due to fluctuating temperatures and freezing waterways. Currently, there are approximately 25 swans at the SPWC and about 15 different types of birds – all crowding every corner of the limited space Meech and her employees and volunteers have to work in. “Usually in the winter we’d get maybe one or two phone calls a day for help and we’d get an average of one bird a day, but this year we’re up almost double our numbers because of the weather. All the animals and birds are in distress because of the really bad weather we’re having so we’re getting lots of calls. Last weekend I had 60 phone calls in one day from people all over asking for help,” said Meech, manager of the SPWC. With waterways freezing over, many birds are dying from dehydration. “The waterfowl that dive, they need open water to dive,” she said. “A lot of

waterfowl are all having the same problem: there’s not enough open water for them to dive and find food so we’re bringing them in here.” If an animal goes too long without food or water, Meech said it could be extremely difficult to nurse it back to health. “What happens when they’re starving, (is) they reach a certain point where their organs start to shut down and they don’t feel hungry anymore. So when we bring them in here they’re also dehydrated because they have no access to water. We have to rehydrate them and tube feed them until they’re feeling well enough to start eating on their own,” explained Meech. Swans and ducks are having the hardest time this winter, explained Meech. She currently has a number of types of ducks in her care, including Mergansers, Golden Eyes, Grebe, and Bufflehead, all waiting to be set free this spring when waterways unfreeze and the weather warms up. “At the moment, the Napanee River is about the only place around here with open water but we

have taken some to Gananoque. We take them wherever we think is best for them and where there are other birds of the same kind,” said Meech. “As soon as there’s open water we can release all of the swans and most of the ducks.” Meech encourages people to feed birds whole corn but if waterfowl are seen without open water, Meech said the SPWC should be contacted immediately. “It’s important, if they want to keep the birds alive, if there’s open water then feed the birds. Feed whole corn to ducks and geese and swans. If there is no open water then they need to come here. You can’t leave a bird in a parking lot and throw corn at it; it’s going to die of dehydration. It needs water. Open water is absolutely essential for these birds,” said Meech. Those seeking to help the SPWC can donate whole corn or small pools for the birds. She is also accepting monetary donations to assist the animals she is caring for. For more information, or to make a donation, contact Meech at 613-3540264.

These are two of more than 20 swans taking refuge at the Sandy Pines Wildlife Centre this winter. A colder than usual winter have left swans and other water fowl with less open water to provide them with food.

EDITORIAL

Strength in community In all our lives, we receive blows that, especially at the time, seem like they will be impossible to bounce back from. The entire community of Tamworth received one of those blows just over a week ago. We doubt anyone could have predicted that a man, obviously but as yet inexplicably unhinged, would rampage through the village last Wednesday afternoon, leaving a trail of death, heartbreak and unanswered questions in his wake. Now, however, two are dead (including the suspected shooter in this case), and two more are in the process of recovering. The community, meanwhile, is grappling with those unanswered questions — including whether or not that quiet rural community will ever be the same again. It’s natural to ask those difficult questions following a tragedy like this one. Some of those questions — like, what would possess a seemingly peaceful man to take the actions he did last Wednesday? — might not ever get satisfactory answers. Another tough question: what can be done to predict and prevent a similar act from taking place in Tamworth or anywhere else? Small, rural villages like Tamworth, however, are wonderful places, and one of the wonderful characteristics of communities like Tamworth is their ability to bounce back. That process of recovery has indeed started — in fact, it started before the day was out last Wednesday. Already, the community is holding various events to demonstrate its resolve and to put this sad chapter behind it. Last night, a special community walk around the village was planned to help residents to confront the impact of the event and to push past it. The community is rallying to help those directly involved in last Wednesday’s bizarre attacks. In other words, Tamworth is doing what small, tight-knit communities do in terrible but thankfully rare circumstances like this: it’s coming together. So while there are many unanswered questions in the wake of last Wednesday’s events, there’s one question — ‘can Tamworth recover from this’? — we have no problem in answering. The answer, of course, is ‘yes.’

The folly of fracking Typically, 5,000,000 gallons of water, mixed with fracking chemicals and sand are required per well per frack; a fracking drill pad typically has 12 wells. 50-90 per cent of the contaminated water is lost during fracking — left behind in the strata. Not only is this water contaminated with toxic chemicals but it has been removed permanently from the water cycle. The contaminated water may, depending on local geology, migrate upwards to contaminate drinking water. The flowback water that does make it to the surface is

The flowback water and the produced water are often disposed of by injection into deep waste disposal wells or processed in local sewage treatment plants ill equipped to handle waste water from fracking. Fracking products contain: acids, bactericides, corrosion inhibitors, friction reducers, gelling agents, iron controllers, scale inhibitors and surfactants.

FRACKING FROM PAGE 6 Methanol, the most common fracking chemical, is considered a cumulative poison with chronic exposure. Other chemicals in use are diesel, napththalene, xylene, hydrogen chloride, toluene, ethyl benzene and benzene, which is a known human carcinogen. The oil and gas service companies surveyed used hydraulic fracturing products containing 29 chemicals that are (1) known or possible human carcinogens, (2) regulated under the U.S. Safe Drinking Water Act for their risks to human health, or (3) listed as hazardous air pollutants under the (US) Clean Air Act. These 29 chemicals were components of 652 different products used in hydraulic fracturing. The produced waters or brines, far saltier than seawater, often contain radioactive elements such as strontium and radium. A 2011 United States Geological Survey study found radioactivity in shale wastewater in Pennsylvania 350 times the drinking water standard set by the (US) Environmental Protection Agency. Most disposal wells and treatment plants are not equipped to deal with radioactive waste. Ideally the recovered methane is all collected and piped away to market. Unfortunately there is evidence that the methane can migrate up through the strata to the water bearing layers or along the well casing when the well has not been properly cemented. Methane, an asphyxiant, entering the ground water becomes an explosive hazard to those consuming the water and the well operators. Wells have been known to blow out. Home owners have been able to light a flame at their household taps. Methane reaching the atmosphere has a global warming potential 72 times that of carbon dioxide. In addition to methane entering the air near drill sites, elevated levels of disulfides, benzene, xylenes and naphthalenes have been detected in air samples. People living near shale gas drilling sites often complain of headaches, diarrhea, nosebleeds, dizziness, blackouts, muscle spasms, and other problems. At the drill pad the concentration of diesel powered pumps and trucks has contributed to high nitrogen oxide concentrations which promote the formation of poisonous ozone. This leads to photochemical smog. Even very low concentrations of ozone can cause permanent damage to the upper respiratory tract and the lungs. Please urge your municipal, provincial and federal representatives to ban fracking in Ontario. The environmental risks are just too great. Stephen R. Knowles, P. Eng. (Ret.), Yarker

The waning power of Oprah When Oprah originally began promoting books in the early 1990s, any title she mentioned would become an instantaneous bestseller — but does Oprah still have as much influence over the reading public as she did in the past? Oprah re-launched her book club as Book Club 2.0 in June of 2012 with Cheryl Strayed's memoir Wild; she had put a halt to her original book club a year before. Once a powerhouse in terms of driving book sales and library holds, Oprah’s book club had been steadily losing steam. After a few years of flocking to whatever books Oprah was hocking, fans began to realize that just because a book appealed to Oprah, didn’t necessarily mean it would appeal to them. Oprah tends to enjoy literary fiction, specifically books in which the protagonist (usually female, often a minority) must overcome some very tough obstacles. Past OBC choices have favored authors like Wally Lamb, Gabriel Garcia Marquez and Toni Morrison. No doubt that these are great authors, but they are also pretty dark and dense examples of

Catherine Coles Coles’ Notes fiction — and they are certainly not for everyone. The problem that arose here was that plenty of the people so keen to jump on the commercial OBC bandwagon in the first place were individuals who wouldn’t have previously considered themselves to be passionate readers. Consequently, when your first foray into pleasure reading is overwhelming and not at all pleasurable, you may be turned off of it all together. This was surely the opposite of Oprah’s intention. While I believe Oprah should be applauded for celebrating reading and being so open about the books she loves, she needs to consider her audience. If she is choosing a book to be read by millions of people, the book ought to have mass appeal and must not be as high on the Lexile reading level scale as say, One Hundred Years of Solitude.

Apparently her brief book club hiatus worked wonders: Wild was a huge bestseller. Oprah is also taking her time between launching book club selections (a bit of scarcity so often does the trick) and she has been choosing books that lean more towards the commercial/women’s fiction end of the literary spectrum. Her latest choice The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd, author of The Secret Life of Bees, is a good example. Filled with strong female characters, this is a story that “gives us a new perspective on slavery, injustice and the search for freedom”. It currently has well over four stars on Goodreads.com, which is a good indicator of how well the book has been received by the general reading public. It seems like Oprah is back on track to recovering her book club following. You can reserve The Invention of Wings at your branch of the County of L&A Libraries. Catherine Coles is the Manager of Library Services for L&A.

A column about those bird brains It is still quite dark when I top up the feeders outside in preparation for the feathered breakfast brigade. Incredibly, at this early hour, there are tiny, dark figures moving about on the ground. In the darkness, there are tree sparrows and even a few mourning doves groping about in the dark for leftovers. Although sunrise is a long way off, apparently I am late again serving up their breakfast. The tree sparrows are not only the first to arrive at our feeders in the morning, they are among the very last to leave the feeders at night. In the sub-Arctic tundra, where these birds typically nest, this is an important attribute, as they have evolved to take advantage of every precious fragment of light they can find. The mourning doves come early too, but it is the tree sparrows that amaze me the most as they grope about on the ground in total darkness for anything they can find. Did they have any problems with the extreme cold we experienced a few weeks ago? Not in the least. Provided they could find food, tree sparrows, and everything else out there seemed to make out okay. Not so with waterfowl, but that’s another story. There was an excellent wild food crop out there this winter. What about their feet? Well, most birds have thermostats in their legs which control circulation to their feet, allowing only a minimum of circulation to pre-

vent freezing, thus conserving precious heat and directing it to other parts of the body where it is needed more. Others admittedly do have problems. Some just can’t seem to get the hang of winter living. While we tend to think of mourning doves as a winter fixture in the Quinte area anymore, it wasn’t always that way. The presence of mourning doves here in the winter has become a common thing only in the last 50 years or so as they are tempted from migrating by an abundance of food, such as unharvested corn fields, and to a certain extent, a plethora of bird feeders in the province. However, mourning doves simply aren’t built for our winters, often suffering from frost damage to their feet. Over 30 per cent of wintering doves in Ontario suffer from this problem in the province. It is not unusual to see doves with toes badly curled, or lacking toes altogether! However, while they experience some problem landing on branches, the toeless birds appear to have little problem walking about on the ground. Give them another hundred years or so, and they will get it right. For the most part though, birds are well adapted to coming through frigid temperatures in fine shape. Some of those that arrive from the far north are darker in colour for darker colours absorb heat. Remember your physics lessons? It has to do

Terry Sprague

Outdoor Rambles with the different wavelengths of light. All light that is not reflected is absorbed. Because light causes heat, dark colors, which absorb more light than lighter colors, are warmer than lighter colors. Does this explain why blue jays at our feeders in winter - suspected migrants from farther north - appear darker? Perhaps so, but bird banders who have an intimate understanding of bird plumage, say there is nothing to that theory. Blue jays are blue jays, and some are darker than others and some are lighter and has nothing to do with where they are from, so we still don’t know the origin of our winter blue jays. Are they local blue jays that didn’t migrate south, or are they visitants from further north that consider the Quinte Region as their Florida? Perhaps a combination of both. However, purple martin houses

in summer are painted white to reflect heat. Birds in the north also have shorter extremities to prevent heat from leaking out. Look at the short stubby beak of the redpoll when they appear again some winter, compared to the beaks of other seed eating birds, more common to the Quinte area. When the temperature drops, birds can increase their insulation by fluffing their feathers to increase the layer of warmer trapped air between the feathers and their bodies. We saw enough of that happening this winter. That is why bird baths are particularly busy in the winter, because birds know they must keep these feathers meticulously clean and lovingly preened to protect the insulating properties. But for birds to function, they must have an adequate supply of fuel to stoke their tiny furnaces. Cold weather burns a lot of fuel, so birds tend to be more active during sub-zero temperatures. Our feeders reflect this, busier on cold days, but the tempo slowing during periods of mild weather. Other than a few here and there, redpolls were not present this winter. The birch, alder and conifer seed crop where these redpolls nest was excellent. So, they stayed put this winter. Why expend energy migrating when there’s no need for it. But, they are a miracle in engineering. During those few precious daylight hours in the north, redpolls

can eat voraciously and store excess seeds into a sort of false crop - its diverticula, if you want the technical term. When darkness falls, they retire to a secluded and protected spot out of the wind, and consume the seeds at their leisure. Think of it as a cow bringing up its cud, and chewing contently. They have other adaptations too, including longer winter feathers than most birds their size, and a heavier coat. They also can burrow in the snow, huddling together in the snow shelter to reduce heat loss. Amazing little critters. The reason we very seldom see gray jays this far south is due to their amazing ability to survive in the cold extremes of Algonquin Park by caching their food in crevices, something they start doing very early in the season. Thousands of tiny crevices are utilized in the forest, and every gray jay remembers each and every one of them, weeks later. Always food around, if you are a gray jay. So, the next time someone refers to you as a “birdbrain,” run right over and give them a big hug as a sign of gratitude. You have just been paid one of the highest compliments!

Second L&A warden left his mark on county A C K

A trip through the pages of The Napanee Beaver 50 Years Ago March 6, 1964 n Napanee’s town council voted to start Daylights Saving Time on April 26 through Oct. 25. n Accepting a motion put forth by councillor Lorne Smart, town council agreed to hold a contest to determine a name for a new park on the corner of Water Street and Mill Street, located on the banks of the Napanee River. Coupons were placed in the local paper and citizens were asked to submit their suggestions.. n High winds in the area kept Hydro crews busy as up to 40 poles were damaged in the storm. n Napanee’s Chamber of Commerce targeted new industries as their goal for 1964. They planned to work with town council to promote new industries and improve relations with the current ones. n Ontario Ministry of Transportation announced two new service stations would be built on Hwy 401 just east and west of Odessa.

35 Years Ago March 6, 1979 n After 21 years on the job Napanee Fire Chief Pat Patton retired. He was responsible for organizing the fire services agreement between Richmond and North Fredericksburgh Townships. He also encouraged local elementary students to tour the fire hall. n Kevin Arsenault was acclaimed as the Hastings-Frontenac New Democratic Party for the upcoming federal election. n Napanee and District Curling Club’s Sally Lambert and Marj Pearce reached the Division 4 Tankard finals, advancing with wins in Whitby. n NDSS’ Golden Hawk girls volleyball team reached the Central Ontario finals, losing to a team from Madoc. n Former Olympic runner Abbie Hoffman dropped by the Prince Charles Public School to serve as a guest speaker. She encouraged both children and adults to get more active. n The county school board decided to continue their alcohol free policy for any events held at any of their schools. The issue sparked a lively debate as some members of the board had hoped to change the policy that forbid the sale of alcohol during any social events held inside a school building.

F.G. Hooper also served area as local MP

Special to the Beaver Editor’s Note: This is the third of an ongoing series provided by L&A County to mark the municipality’s 150th anniversary. This article focusses on Augustus Frederick Garland Hooper, 1815-1866. Augustus Hooper, a wellknown merchant and politician, was born in Devonshire, England in 1815 and came to Canada in 1819. He was educated at the public school and seminary of the City of Quebec and, when he grew up, was engaged for a number of years in a lumbering firm. In 1843 he set out for Canada West and established himself in mercantile business at the village of Newburgh in partnership with his brother Douglas, under the firm name of A. & D. Hooper. In about 1850 he built the old stone Hooper residence at Camden East and branched out in the lumbering business, which he followed until his death. In 1860 Hooper was elected warden of the then United Counties of Frontenac, Lennox and Addington. In 1861 he also served one term as representative for the area for the old Parliament of Canada, and was in turn defeated by Sir Richard Cartwright in 1863. Being an Addington man and closely associated with the business interests of Newburgh, he quite naturally upheld the claims of that village for the county seat, while Cartwright, who was deeply interested in Napanee, supported the latter village. The local question of the separation of the counties and the choice of the county town overshadowed all other issues and turned the scale in Cartwright’s favour. Hooper was for several years reeve of the Township of Camden and in 1866 was proclaimed the second warMARCH 13 MAPLE RIDGE WOMEN’S INSTITUTE Group will meet at 7:30 p.m. at the home of Marion Thompson.

Salvation Army to host tea party fundraiser

BY ADAM PRUDHOMME Staff Reporter

The Napanee Salvation Army’s basement will have a royal British feel to it on March 15 as it plays host to its first ever Tea Party Fundraiser. For $10 guests in their best formal wear will enjoy an afternoon tea, snacks and entertainment provided by country singer Lisa Hart, followed by gospel music. Money raised from the event will be split between the Salvation Army’s Friends Club after school program and its upcoming summer camp program. “We thought for March Break it might be a good idea to do something where moms, daughters, grandmothers or aunts can come out for an afternoon tea,� said Salvation Army’s Dana Henry. “They also have an opportunity to get a picture taken by a professional photographer who is donating her time.� Studio 56 will be on hand to snap portraits of the guests, if they so choose. Space is limited for the

event, which runs from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. To reserve tickets call Henry at 613354-7633. The Salvation Army Community Church is located at 82 Richard St. And though it feels like anything but summer outside, Henry is accepting registrations for the Outdoor Adventure Camp which runs July 21 to 26. The cost is $245 per child with subsidies available for those who qualify. Open to kids six to 16, the camp will include swimming, hiking, singing and all of the other summer camp staples with a religious theme. Kids in the six to 10 age group will spend the week at Jackson’s Point Camp, which is north of Newmarket. The 11- to 16- year-olds will head to Newport Adventure Camp in Muskoka. Transportation is included in the cost of the camp, parents need only drop their kids off at the Salvation Army Church. To register or for more information on the subsidies call Henry at 613-354-7633. Space is limited to 15 kids from the area and tends to fill up quickly.

Stage is set for Relay for Life BY ASHLEY ESPINOZA Staff Reporter

This year’s Napanee Relay for Life will take place on Friday, June 13, and the theme will be just that: Friday the 13th. The announcement was made at a Relay for Life launching celebration on the weekend, where this year’s ambassador was also announced: six-year-old Leyla Parks, who battled cancer at the fragile age of one. Relay for Life co-chair Michelle Way said Leyla brings energy and youth to Relay. “Our Survivor Chair chose Leyla Parks because she’s so happy and rambunctious and the family and everyone involved was just so happy and gracious to be at Relay,� explained Way. “As of this June, it will mark five years since Leyla was diagnosed with neuroblastoma. It also marks one year since we found out that the cancer is now dormant, or sleeping. And to top it off, Leyla just had her six-month visit and does not have to return to the cancer clinic for another year,� said Leyla’s godmother, Crystal Barkley, at the event on the weekend. “When asked if Leyla would be this year’s ambassador, I was filled with emotion. I was excited for Leyla on so many levels. She now gets to tell these wonderful people her story of strength, determination and stub-

AUDITORS’ REPORT on Summarized Financial Statements. To the Policyholders of Amherst Island Mutual Insurance Company The accompanying summary financial statements, which comprise the summarized balance sheet as at December 31, 2013 and statements of earnings and policyholders’ equity for the year then ended are derived from the audited financial statements of Amherst Island Mutual Insurance Company for the year ended December 31, 2013. We expressed an unmodified audit opinion on those financial statements in our report dated February 25, 2014. The summary financial statements do not contain all the disclosures required by International Financial Reporting Standards. Reading the summary financial statements, therefore, is not a substitute for reading the audited financial statements of Amherst Island Insurance Company. Management's Responsibility for the Summary Financial Statements Management is responsible for the preparation of a summary of the audited financial statements in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards.

Auditor's Responsibility Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the summary financial statements based on our procedures, which were conducted in accordance with Canadian Auditing Standard (CAS) 810, “Engagements to Report on Summary Financial Statements�.

Opinion In our opinion, the summary financial statements derived from the audited financial statements of Amherst Island Mutual Insurance Company are a fair summary of those financial statements, in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards.

continued, standing alongside the brave new ambassador. Joan Goswell, Relay for Life district co-ordinator, explained that cancer research has come a long way, but still has a long way to go. “Last night I had a friend pass away at 36 years old, with two small children,� she said on Saturday at the SPC. “Leyla is living proof that what we’re doing is working, we’re getting there. My friend is proof that we have a long way to go,� Goswell continued. Goswell explained that cancer touches everyone and that every dollar toward research helps toward preventing and fighting cancer. “I just wanted to let you know that what you’re doing is working. Every dollar that you raise is so

important and we’re getting there‌ Thank you so much,â€? she said. Napanee Relay for Life raised $100,000 last year. This year they hope to beat that record by $10,000. “We have set it for $110,000 but really, the committee wants a whole lot more than that. Let’s write down our goal as $110,000 but let’s kick that number out of the water and go a whole lot higher than that,â€? said Way. The committee is looking for ideas to tie in this year’s theme to the event, so anyone with Friday the 13th ideas or superstition ideas can contact the committee, at 613-893-6523. Relay for Life events such as dinner under the stars, nighttime Zumba, and a pizza party are all scheduled to run again this year.

Tax Relief for First Time Home Buyers !!

Ralph McKenny

Mortgage Agent Martel Mortgages FSCO #11963 (W) 1-855-320-2464 Ext #112 (C) 613-449-0680 www.martelmortgages.ca/ralphmckenny Last week I wrote about First Time Home Buyers and some of the common mortgage terms, definitions and decisions that may have to be made. This week I’ll describe some of the closing costs you might expect and also report on benefits that exist by way of government programs that may help in offsetting some of those costs. Expectations Prior to Closing and Closing Costs My goal is to find the best mortgage options for my Clients. Buying a house is exciting. But can’t be all fun and games. Down payment aside, there are other considerations and closing costs when buying a home the new home buyer should be aware of. So what are they? Things to consider: • Down Payment of course which can be as low as 5% from your own funds or can be a gift. For example a $200,000 mortgage would require a $10,000 down payment. • Deposit is required once you submit your offer to purchase a home. Your Real Estate agent will help you determine this amount. • Mortgage Loan Insurance is required if your down pay-

ment is less than 20%. I can help you determine the insurance premium or you can visit www.cmhc.com. This premium is added to the mortgage. • Home Inspection assesses the condition of the home you are buying and chosen at your discretion and cost. • Title Insurance is a one-time cost and your lawyer or notary can help you decide whether to purchase or not. Some Lenders insist you have it. It will be included in your final legal fees. • Legal fees can vary. You will need a lawyer experienced in Real Estate transactions to represent you. Suggest asking family, friends for a referral. I can also provide you with a referral. • Property insurance covers any number of loss types or damage to your property. You may save money if you bundle with vehicle insurance but your insurance agent can advise you best. • Land Registration Fees aka Land Transfer Tax. For rates v i s i t www.fin.gov.on.ca/en/tax/ltt/r ates.html . First time home buyers please refer to Land Transfer Tax refund below. • Three programs that may help you decide to leave the apartment (or your parent’s basement) for home ownership are: • Land Transfer Tax Refund • First Time Home Buyers Tax Credit (HBTC) • GST/HST New Housing Rebate Land Transfer Tax Refund This is an Ontario Government program that allows first-time home buyers to apply for a refund of Land Transfer Tax to a maximum of $2000. In the case of joint ownership such as husband/wife, if one has previously owned a home but

the other has not, you are still able to apply for 50% of the refund. You can apply at the time of registration or at some point within 18 months of registration. Please visit http://www.fin.gov.on.ca/ for more details on eligibility, additional details and application forms. First Time Home Buyers Tax Credit First time home buyers can apply at tax time to receive a tax credit of up to $750. The eligible home must be in Canada and can be new or already built. It can be detached, a condominium, semi-detached, mobile home or a share in a Cooperative Housing Corporation. You are eligible if you have not owned a home in the year of purchase or in the preceding 4 years. However, if your spouse has not owned interest in a home, he or she can still apply. If you are disabled or buying a home to accommodate someone disabled, you are eligible to apply for the tax credit and you don’t have to be a first-time home buyer. For more detail please visit: http://www.cra.gc.ca/hbtc . GST/HST New Housing Rebate Buyers of new homes or substantially renovated homes may be eligible to apply for a HST rebate (Ontario) and GST rebate (Federal). These rebates can be very significant. Please check the conditions and eligibility requirements by contacting Canada Revenue Agency or their website http://www.cra.gc.ca . Yes that’s right. Tax money back!! New house may need new furniture. Or maybe a new deck and a riding lawn mower. Please take advantage of these programs and again don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions. Compliments of Ralph McKenny, a local Mortgage Agent with Martel Mortgages FSCO License 11963. Questions can be addressed to rmckenny@martelmortgages.ca or see other contact information top of column.

Hawks dethroned as KASSAA girls hockey champions HC bests NDSS 3-1 in Kingston

BY ADAM PRUDHOMME Staff Reporter

NDSS’ trophy case will seem a bit barren this year as for the first time since 2010 the KASSAA girls hockey championship trophy will be housed inside a different high school. That school will be Holy Cross as the Crusaders finally bested their NDSS Golden Hawks rivals with a 3-1 victory on Friday at the Invista Centre. Holy Cross jumped out to a quick 1-0 lead and maintained it throughout the opening period. They doubled it early in the second. Napanee was able to get a foothold in the game when they were granted a 5-on-3 power-play midway through the second. Brianna Gaffney made good use of the opportunity, scoring Napanee’s lone goal of the game. NDSS continued to press throughout the game and never allowed the Crusaders to get completely comfortable, but still couldn’t solve Crusader goalie Jensen Murphy.

Holy Cross. That’s a very experienced, well trained team and they brought a good effort today, so it’s not like we lost to a bad team.” The Crusaders certainly appeared amped up for this one, jumping out to a lead in the opening five minutes and scoring a huge momentum swing in the process.

“I don’t believe Holy Cross has trailed in a game in KASSAA this year,” noted Campeau. “Obviously we would like to have had a better start, but we didn’t fold the tent. It would have been easier to give up when you’re down by two. Holy Cross had a bunch of fans in the stands cheering for them but there

huge deviation from a club that at one point won 18 straight games and lost only four times in 40 games. They did however beat Amherstview 7-2 and

2-0 in their final two games of the regular season and were 8-0 against them on the year. On paper the Pirates have an edge in both goaltending and offense, having allowed 72 fewer goals in the regular season while scoring 85 more goals. The Jets on the other hand barely made the playoffs, needing a win in their final regular game to secure a berth. Since the playoffs have begun however they’ve shown they belong, making quick work of the Panthers. These two clubs met in the 2013 playoffs, with Picton sweeping the Jets in the first round en route to their first ever Schmalz Cup. Game 1 of the 2014 Empire B League finals will begin tonight with a 7:30 p.m. puck drop at the Prince Edward County Community Centre. The rest of the series’ games are yet to be determined.

was no quit on the bench.” Holy Cross was the team to beat all year, going 7-0 in league play. Napanee finished second to them, going 5-2. Each team breezed through the playoff round, destined to meet each other in a clash of the titans. It marked a rematch of the 2012 finals, the last full KASSAA sea-

son, when NDSS edged Holy Cross 2-1 in the final seconds. Napanee’s second place finish could be the start of another prolonged run as they could see many key players return for 2014-15. Many of the team’s top players graduated following the cancelled 2013 season, leaving many unproven players to fill their roles. Rather than experience growing pains, they continued to thrive and carry on the NDSS tradition of fielding a competitive girls hockey team. “Some of them have never played in a KASSAA final,” Campeau said of his team. “We’ve got some kids that have been here four years and we’ve got four Grade 9s on our team. Hopefully they got a taste and will want to come back.” Napanee had hoped to play as the home team in Tuesday’s EOSSAA meeting with Thousand Islands Secondary School, held at the Strathcona Paper Centre, but instead that privilege when to Holy Cross. It was a similar story on the boys’ side for Napanee, as the Crusaders ended their run as well, only one round earlier. The Golden Hawks met the Crusaders in the KASSAA semifinals last Wednesday, losing 7-1. Holy Cross went on to shutout La Salle 2-0 in the KASSAA finals, also played last Friday at the Invista Centre.

Minor Hockey Report

Peewee B Crunch’s run comes to an end Beaver Sports

The Napanee Peewee B Crunch played two games over the weekend. On Saturday, the Crunch travelled to Whitby for Game 2 of their second round LLFHL playoff series against the Wolves. Trailing the series 1-0, the girls needed a victory to stay alive in the series. A hard fought game remained tied 0-0 heading into the third period when Whitby connected on a pair of goals to end the series for the Crunch. On Sunday, the Crunch hosted the Kemptville Storm in their final Provincial Playdowns game. The Storm proved to be too much for the girls as the game ended in a 3-0 defeat for the Crunch. The two losses puts an end to the

Peewee B Crunch season. The team would like to thank coaches Rob Uens and Dennis Hannah, trainers Dawn Hudson and Jenn Weese, and team manager Pam Schmidt for their dedication and leadership throughout the year. n The Moore 5/Stone Mills Construction Novice Crunch took home their third Gold medal of the year in Oshawa this past weekend. They clinched the tournament with a 3-0 shutout against Burlington. Kristen Sutton potted two goals while Stella Sutton had the other. Keyra Herrington was perfect in net. They opened the tournament with a 2-2 tie against the same Burlington Green Giants.

CRUNCH | Novice girls win third tournament of the season in Oshawa CONTINUED FROM PAGE 21 Kristen Sutton had both goals with assists to Sarah Marshall, Jaidyn Manion and Stella Sutton. In the second game they took down Nepean 4-1 on the strength of a Lila Pringle hat trick and one from Kristen Sutton. Assists went to Abby Kish (three) and Adrianna McLean. They continued their hot play with an easy 12-0 win over West Northumberland. Goals were scored by Pringle (three) Manion (four) K. Sutton (two) with singles from Stella Sutton, Adrianna McLean and Abby McCaw. That was the start of five game shutout

stretch as they closed out the tournament with a 5-0, 6-0 and 5-0 win over Clarington and two Nepean entries before clinching the championship game. Herrington earned all five shutouts. The Novice Crunch have now won three of the four tournaments they've entered this year. n On Wednesday evening the Bantam Crunch girls hosted the Ennismore Eagles for Game 2 of their best-of-three series in the Lower Lakes playoffs. Ennismore came out strong and proved to be too much for the Napanee girls, clinching the game 21 and the series. The lone

Napanee goal was scored by Adele Frink from Maddy Marlow. This ended their playoff run in the Lower Lakes league. On Saturday, the girls hosted the Kemptville Storm in the final game of the OWHA Provincial Playdowns. The Napanee girls played a fast paced game with many shots on net. The only goal of the game was scored by Karley Wood Murphy, assisted by Rayanne West and Ashlee Couvreur. The 1-0 win for Napanee earns the Bantam B Crunch a spot in the OWHA Provincials, April 10-12 in Toronto. n The Atom Crunch started off strong in their match up against Kingston Ice Wolves on Saturday with a trip to Provincials on the line. Starting off with strong forechecking the Crunch were solid as a team, and by the end of the first period the Crunch had a 2-0 lead with Lauren Sutton scoring the pair, earning assists on the goals were Anna Baker (two) and Breanna Roy. With a strong defensive next couple of periods the Crunch kept the Ice Wolves scoreless, solidifying the win Baker found the back of

the net in the third period with Sutton and Nikki Weese earning assists. Makenna Marlow posted the shutout. This earned the Atom Crunch a spot in OWHA Provincials April 10-12 . Next up is the beginning of a four point series against Clarington for League Playoffs, Game 1 will be Sunday at 2:00 p.m. at home. n The Napanee Country Traditions Novice A Stars swept the OMHA semifinal series with Cobourg last Thursday with a dominating 8-1 win to reach the Ontario East Finals A determined and focused Napanee squad took charge early, scoring 23 seconds into the game. Strong skating, relentless puck pursuit and control entirely overwhelmed the visiting Cougars. Napanee scored six more times in the second and once in the third. Scoring for the Stars were Cal Uens (five), Spencer Cranley (two) and Ethan Sutcliffe. Assists went to Taylor Gilmour (three), Lukas Hannah, Carter McKee, Ty Kemp, Nolan Fox, Gavin Brooks, Sutcliff and Uens. Stars netminder Jacob Brown

backstopped the Stars to the victory. Earlier, after winning Game 1 convincingly 8-1, they faced a team desperate for a win in the series in Game 2. The Cobourg Cougars came out hard from the drop of the puck, and scoring first, 49 seconds into the game. Despite having the majority of the scoring chances - the Stars struggled to find their game early in the first, but managed to tie the game late in the period. The Stars dug deep, and found a way to get it done- scoring three times in the third period for the 4-1 win. Scoring for the Stars were Cranley (two), Uens and Will Myers. The Stars remain undefeated in the playoffs, as they prepare to face Uxbridge in Game 1 of the Ontario East Finals at the SPC on Sunday at 1 p.m. On Sunday, to stay sharp, they played an exhibition contest against Belleville AA, and again prevailed 10-0. n Meanwhile the McDougall Insurance continued their round robin Lakeshore series with Belleville and Uxbridge. Facing Belleville on Thursday night, having already shut them out 3-0 earlier, they hung on for a 5-4 win. They never trailed as they built a 2-0 lead on a pair of goals by Connor McInnis in the first. Daniel Chase got a shorthanded marker in the second, and Nolan Cardinal and Ben Buxton also hit the score sheet. Still, Belleville got two in the second and two in the third, the last with fewer than five minutes left in regulation. Belleville removed their goalie for an extra attacker, but the locals prevailed 5-4. On Sunday, the team faced a unique situation, playing the last 4:43 of an incomplete game from the previous Sunday in Uxbridge, before playing Game 2 in the series. With the score beginning at 3-2, they were not able to hold off their opponents, losing 5-2.Chase and Caleb South netted goals in the loss. In the back half of the double header, they were shut out to end their season. Aiden Vallier performed exceptionally in nets in both contests. n The Exit Realty Minor Bantam boys, having already defeated Clarington at home, needed a win or tie in Clarington to advance to the Lakeshore semifinals. They got into early penalty trouble, and fell behind 2-0 after only three minutes. Undaunted, and playing with a 5-on-3 advantage, Nelson Powers broke into the slot and buried one. Ethan Winter knotted the score on a goalmouth scramble. Uncharacteristically, they gave up two short-handed goals, one in the second frame, and another in the third. The teams were scheduled to play a one game playoff Tuesday night in Clarington. n The Spuds Atom As opened their semifinal

Lakeshore series with Whitby Blue on Saturday. In the first, they traded goals on the strength of a pair of markers by John Hearns. Elliot Mundle assisted on both goals, while Ben White and Greg Mills also earned helpers. That is all the offense that they muster however, as the visitors added five to hand the locals a 7-2 loss. Sunday on the road, the locals played a tight defensive game that ended 1-1 in Whitby. Next up is a homeand-home with Uxbridge, with Sunday’s game at the SPC at 2:30 p.m. n The Boyd Electric Peewee Stars were a little rusty from their layoff from play when they travelled to Ajax, and were edged 1-0. Back home on Sunday, Ryan Kirkpatrick had two markers, while Corbin Gibson and Liam Wilkinson each had a single. Two of these goals were scored on the power play, and Kirkpatrick’s second was a dramatic penalty shot goal with 22 ticks left in the third. Still, the score stood at 4-4 at the third period buzzer. The Stars had opportunities in the overtime, then were headed to an overtime tie, but gave up a power play goal with only 32 seconds left for a 5-4 loss, and a 2-0 deficit in the best of five series. They need a win on Friday in Ajax to return home Saturday at 6 p.m. n The Bantam AE squad find themselves down two games to zero against a very strong Peterborough team, and will travel to the Liftlock city again on Saturday for Game 3 of their series. Napanee District Minor Hockey Year End Championships In House League action, Napanee District Minor Hockey held its annual end of year party this past week starting Friday with a very exciting atom semi final game. The Progressive Waste Solutions/Atomc Green team enjoyed a one goal lead thanks to Justin Lloyd until Bryan Christie, of the Calderwood Automation Inc/Atomc Black team tied it up late in the third period. Christie quickly gave Calderwood the lead with a second goal. Ryan Scilley tied it back up with less than five minutes left. At 2:59, Liam Swart scored the winner, sending the Progressive Waste Solutions/Atomc Green team to the A Championship on Saturday. Saturday morning championships began with Matthew Lougheed scoring a hat trick to lead the Byron Perry Grey Stars to victory over the Kennelly Heating & Air Conditioning Red Stars in the Novice B Championship game. Carter Street, of the Strathcona Paper Yellow Stars, scored the winning goal in the third period to upset the early lead of the Boyer Blue Stars and capture the Novice A Championship title.

Outgoing missionaries reflect on time in Napanee BY ASHLEY ESPINOZA Staff Reporter

Town of Greater Napanee staff, the Napanee Business Improvement Area, and a number of other organizations have been working to improve downtown to make Napanee more appealing to an outsider. But is it working? Two missionaries from the United States have been in Napanee for eight months and reflected on their time here in an interview with The Beaver. Sister Ester, from Arizona, and Sister Sears, from Utah, both from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, said the beautiful waterfront trail, flowers and greenery, and unique buildings are some of their favourite aspects in Napanee. “When you get in the country it’s really nice. I’m from Arizona, I’m from the desert, but in the country here I love the green and the colours. I would say it’s the most beautiful area I’ve served in; with the river and everything, it’s great,” said Sears. In the winter, Sears experienced her very first Santa Claus parade and thoroughly enjoyed watching Napanee glow during the Big Bright Lights Show. However, both agree what they’ll miss most about Napanee are the people.

“There are amazing people here. You can see so much potential, it’s amazing. And Napanee is really beautiful. We’ve been here through summer, fall and winter now and it’s beautiful,” said Sears. “We love Napanee, we really do. When we first got here, it was a little bit harder for us because it’s so small and we had to go talk to lots of people we don’t know, but the longer we stayed here the more we love Napanee,” said Ester. From shoveling snow off downtown sidewalks to helping those in need, Ester and Sears have had the opportunity to experience Napanee in a number of ways. “I feel like the world slows down in Napanee. In the city it’s so rushed but here people have the time of day where they will actually talk to people,” said Sears, explaining the slower paced environment has been a nice change for her. “My entire life, I’ve always lived in cities. When I would travel I would go to big cities and I’ve spent a lot of time in big cities. I was kind of freaked out when I first came to Napanee because there are 15,000 in the area and I’ve never been somewhere so small. My university has more people than this. But I love it. I love everything about it,” said Sears.

Ashley Espinoza-Staff

Sister Ester (left) and Sister Sears, missionaries with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, say there’s much they’ll miss about Napanee when they depart after an eight-month stay. Ester, from a small town herself, adjusted more easily but said Napanee has still had a huge impact on her. Most importantly, it’s helped her to see people differently.

“We spend a lot of time downtown and there’s a lot of people that hang out downtown that most people wouldn’t give the time of day to… but some of those people have become

Pair of local rinks take Town and County draws Club’s closing ‘spiel fast approaching BY SANDY EASTLAKE On the Button

he annual Town & Country Bonspiel last Wednesday showed 64 curlers from near and far great ice and great fun thanks to convenor Jack McNamee and his committee of Hugh Sharpe and Robert Hough. Two Napanee rinks were fortunate to win both the first and second draw prizes so congratulations to Don Currier, Frank Dunham, Jim Stapley, Chris Goody and Chris Ramshaw, Tom Miller and Darrell Pritchard. Kitchen captain Sandi McNamee with Marilyn Cole, Jane Hough, Stacey Jones, Jo Sutton and Robin Stockfish served up a delicious lunch while Tom Ayling, Darrell Pritchard and McNamee kept everyone’s thirsts satisfied. While not curling the four members of Currier’s team were responsible for the terrific fast ice. Prior to prize presentations the convenor thanked all his sponsors for their kind

donations starting with Clow Farm Equipment, O’Neills Farm Supply, Waste Management, L&A Mutual, Moore Bros. NDCC's team of Bryce Rowe, Ryan Rowe, Rob Dickson and Scott Dickson won the B side of the OCA Colt Regionals and will now advance to provincials. Those will be held March 12-15 at the Chatham Granite Curling Club. Four club teams curled at the Senior Men’s Bonspiel at the Quinte Curling Club last weekend with some making it to the prize table. Congratulations to Frank Dunham, Andy Palmer, Darrell Pritchard and John Ryan on your third place finish; Walter Genereax and team tied for eighth while the teams of Ed File and Hugh Sharpe had a great day of good food and camaraderie. I have been writing a lot about our men’s successes but nothing about our ladies so please remember to let me know when you venture out for a Bonspiel. The annual General Meeting agenda on March 30 at 1 p.m. has already been emailed or ready for pick up at the club so if curlers did not get one call Elizabeth Vandenberg 3730099.

The nomination box is on the table near the kitchen counter so if you know a fellow curler willing to fill one of the seven Director’s positions please put it in the box. The sign up sheet for the Closing Martin & Walters is posted on the main bulletin board so talk to your fellow curlers, neighbors, friends and come help us end the season with a bang. There’s no doubt that Don Currier, Jim Stapley and Steve Eastlake will all be cringing or maybe shedding a tear or two as they watch skaters end the evening right after the famous turkey and ham toss junior fundraising event. This closing funspiel is open to all so curlers may sign up as a team (please list all four players) or as an individual (just put a name in the position they’d would like to play is all that is needed.) Thank you to Paul McDonald, Barry Brummell, John Stimpson and Bill Ryan for staffing the bar during the rental last weekend. The banquet this year is set for Friday, April 25 and tickets are available from your league directors.

Local skating club’s Carnival celebrates Canada BY ADAM PRUDHOMME Staff Reporter

Mounties, mosquitoes and everything else Canada has to offer will be on display at the Napanee and

District Skating Club’s annual Carnival, held March 30 at the SPC. The year end show, which features more than 100 skaters from the club’s various levels and programs, will have a decided-

ly Great White North theme. Naturally it’s been dubbed ‘The Maple Leaf Forever. ‘ “There will be a lot of culture and history touched upon,” said NDSC’s Beth McKinney,

who is in charge of this year’s show. “It will focus on the different kinds of music that Canada has to offer.” All 10 provinces and the territories will have a number dedicated to them while skaters perform a routine that pays homage to their culture. “They’re all using Canadian music by Canadian artists,” said McKinney. “We’re trying to have a comedic approach and have it be fun and entertaining.” As with all Carnivals, a portion of the show will feature a ‘farewell’ skate for members of the club who are graduating from the program. This year’s graduating group is made up of Anna McKinney, Shannon McKinney and Alex Israel. As part of their farewell skate, the McKinneys are choreographing a special number that will honour the many volunteers that make up Greater Napanee. “Our community is like a tightly-knit family,” said Shannon McKinney. “They’ve had a big influence on our lives.” “One of the cool things about this routine is that each skater gets to nominate someone in the community to be recognized as the number is going on,” added Anna McKinney. Neither of the girls have ever put together a

From some of the younger skaters who could barely stand up on skates in September, this is a chance to demonstrate how far they’ve come through hours of training and practice. Tickets for the show are $5 while children under the age of four are free. They will be sold at the Strathcona Paper Centre’s doors in advance of their 2 p.m. show. MyFM’s Jamie Cybulski will return to once again emcee the event.

number like this and now get to see skating through the eyes of a coach. They say they’ve been inspired by the generosity of those in their community and it prompted them to pay tribute. Helping others also fits in perfectly with the Canadian theme. For the rest of the group the Carnival offers an opportunity for them to show friends and family what they’ve learned throughout the season.

Every year we make new year’s resolutions and say we want to live happier and healthier. The truth is life is too good to go without a smile. So what’s stopping you? Most denture wearers have not changed their dentures in over 10 years. Dentures have an average life span of 5-8 years. To many wearers this comes as a surprise. As we age, our mouths change due to gum and bone loss resulting in sagging facial features and loose, painful dentures. The dentures move due to excessive bone loss creating a floating appearance. This is seen particularly in lower dentures. As the teeth get older they naturally start to stain and it makes it more difficult to clean. The teeth will also start to wear down making the chewing surface less effective. Denture wearers don’t realize all these changes because they’ve had them so long. If your current dentures are over 15 years your bite force will be reduced to 6 pounds of force compared to 200 pounds of force with natural teeth. This leads to swallowing large pieces of food which can create digestive problems resulting in acid reflux, choking hazards and constipation. Many claim to be able to eat what they want but are they able to chew properly? Like the old Chinese proverb says "The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago, the second best time is now!” If you would like more information please Husband and wife (Al and Elsie Leeson) with their new smiles courtesy contact Wayne Martins DD. of the “newest dental treatments” with Denturist Wayne Martins DD

More planets found beyond our solar system Local astronomer says search for ‘exoplanets’ is part of rapidly-expanding field of science

BY SETH DUCHENE Editor

ews last week that NASA had confirmed the existence of some 715 new planets outside our solar system is causing a buzz both inside

N

and outside scientific circles. “This is certainly one (field of astronomy) that’s of interest to the public because it’s a tangible thing,” says SkyNews editor and Yarker-based astronomy writer Terence Dickinson.

The latest announcement comes following the analysis of the latest batch of data provided by the Kepler spacecraft, which over the course of its twoyear lifespan managed to find 3,500 exoplanet ‘candidates’. Dickinson said last week’s revelation repre-

FIRST EDITION

sents about half the data provided by Kepler, and that there will undoubtedly be more confirmed exoplanets revealed after Kepler’s remaining data is analyzed. Dickinson notes that it was only 19 years ago that the first planet outside the solar system was discovered. “The field has just exploded… it’s probably the hottest field in astronomy,” he said. With the discovery of more exoplanets — many of which are between the size of Earth and Neptune — comes the tantalizing possibility that some of those worlds could harbour life, and possibly intelligent life. Dickinson acknowledges

that excitement, but adds that it will be a long time before we can determine, for certain, that life exists outside of our solar system. The first step, he says, will be to find worlds that are close in characteristics to Earth — close in size, and close in distance to the sun. Then, scientists will also have to determine the atmospheric makeup of those planets, and look for signatures of life as we know it. The alternative, he says, would be to send a robotic probe from Earth, but given the large distances involved, it could take several decades to reach an exoplanet. Dickinson predicts that the answer to the funda-

mental question, ‘Are we alone?’, won’t come until the 22nd Century. “It’s going to drive us far into the future, asking the same question,” he said. Regardless of how the search for exoplanets and extraterrestrial life proceeds, the Kepler spacecraft won’t be part of the process. An equipment failure about two years into its projected four-year lifespan effectively ended Kepler’s mission. Dickinson said that both NASA and the European Space Agency have plans to launch similar spacecraft in the nottoo-distant future; meanwhile, ground-based telescopes will continue the search for exoplanets.

L&A SOS puts call out for drivers Volunteers needed to help take seniors to appointments

BY ASHLEY ESPINOZA Staff Reporter

Lennox and Addington Seniors Outreach Services is looking for more volunteer drivers to transport seniors to and from appointments, as well provide company while they wait to see the doctor. “The program is a service provided for seniors to get to medical appointments,” said Tammy Webster, SOS transportation coordinator. She said the program has been very successful for years, providing about 300 rides for seniors each month. Webster oversees 41 drivers but said there is still a shortage, especially in the Loyalist area. “It used to be Monday to Friday but now it’s branching into Saturdays and Sundays because hospitals are providing clinics and MRI services 24/7,” said

Webster, explaining why more volunteers are needed. “We go as far as Amherstview and Loyalist. That’s where our need is right now,” she said. Odessa and Bath are areas also in need of volunteer drivers. Drivers help seniors in and out of the vehicle and also bring any walkers or wheelchairs required. “This program has been a saving grace for many people. As the transportation coordinator I enjoy each day hearing the positive feedback from clients and drivers each and every day. This service not only meets the needs of the clients themselves, but also benefits the volunteer drivers by giving them a very good feeling about what they are doing for the community,” explained Webster in a press release. One driver said volunteering as a driver has been a great way for him to spend

his retirement. “When you retire, you have two choices for your future lifestyle. No. 1: you can pack it all in and become a couch potato… or No. 2: you can get acquainted with Seniors Outreach in Napanee and never look back,” he explained. “Now I am driving people wherever, managing reception desks, delivering hot meals and anything else they might ask. And you know what — I love it.” Clients have said it is an affordable, reliable and supportive mode of transportation on top of the fact that

clients enjoy the company of a volunteer driver. “Social isolation is a common dilemma for people such as I,” one client explained. “The drivers offer conversation for those wishing to converse, or silence if that is what is desired. Sometimes my SOS driver will be the first human I speak to on a particular day.” Those interested in volunteering as a SOS transportation driver can contact Pauline Arsenault, volunteer co-ordinator, at 613-3546668 ext. 115.

HOW TO PREPARE FOR TAX TIME

lthough some are ready to say their fond farewells to 2013, thought needs to be given to the 12 months that just passed as tax-filing season approaches. Tax season is upon

can make the process go more smoothly in the months ahead. Here are some tips on how to prepare for the upcoming tax season. • Start a documents folder. Employers, charitable organizations, banks and other financial institutions begin mailing out tax forms from the previous year in early January. Individuals should keep their eyes open for any mail that appears to be taxrelated. Store these documents in a folder that can protect any sensitive information. Such folders also make information more accessible as more and more

documents arrive in the mail. • Begin collecting receipts and itemizing expenses. Many expenses are taxdeductible. These can include education costs, moving expenses, home improvements, medical expenses, charitable donations and childcare costs. Store receipts and other documentation, including canceled checks, with the other tax documents. These will come in handy should an audit ever be ordered. • Create a spreadsheet of important information. It is handy to have all financial information

at the ready. Some accountants will lower their fees if people do some of the filing preparation work themselves. This can include creating a profit/loss statement on investments, or working up a tally of charitable donations. Make an itemized list of all pertinent information so it will be handy when taxfiling time arrives. • Decide on a filing option. Technology has made filing taxes much easier. Tax preparation software is available for those who choose to file their taxes themselves. There also are walk-in centers that will prepare tax-filing documents. Individuals also can visit a certified public accountant. Whatever method taxpayers choose, allow for ample time to gather information and get the taxes filed by the deadline. Leave some wiggle room in case one filing method doesn't work out.

• Start saving money. Although the goal is to get a refund each and every year, taxpayers sometimes owe money, which can be troublesome for men and women whose budgets are stretched thin already. Those who owed money in the past should begin saving money for tax expenses as early as possible. • Develop a good filing system. Many financial professionals will advise people to keep financial records for 7 years. Any tax documents should be kept together should they need to be referenced or if an audit is ordered. Designate a filing cabinet or a box specifically for tax documents. Tax filing season is right around the corner, and the dawn of a new year is a great time for men and women to start gathering documents and preparing their returns.
