ing to remind drivers who may have fallen into some bad habits over the summer that extra caution is needed when driving though a school zone. “Quite frankly, unless you have children of school age and you’re paying attention to putting them back into school, it’s just one more day of the week in September,” said Cst. Woodburn. “It’s reminding those motorists that don’t necessarily have school-age children that back to school is starting, watch for the children. For the first little while, it’s an exciting new start for them, they’re excited to see some of their friends and, kids being kids, they aren’t always paying attention when crossing the street.” Aside from the obvious risk of an accident, failing to abide by the rules of the road can be quite costly. “Fines for cellphones are going up,” said Cst. Woodburn. “The price of that is now going to be up to total payable of $490. Speed fines, that depends on the speed that they were (caught) doing. A simple 15 kilometres over (the limit) in a school zone is still going to cost somebody $60 total payable.

Constable Scott Woodburn of the Napanee OPP’s traffic unit says officers are already doing extra enforcement in school zones. three demerit points to your driver’s license.” It’s not just in school zones that drivers have to mindful, either. They’re encouraged to exercise extra caution when driving behind a school bus. Passing a bus that has its lights flashing and stop sign extended can cost a driver $490 and six demerit points. “In that particular case, we don’t have to get the driver,” Cst. Woodburn says of passing a stopped school bus. “The school bus operator is able to get a license plate and we can actually charge the owner of the vehicle.” That means, cautions Cst. Woodburn, that the owner of the vehicle could be held responsible even if they weren’t actually driving the car at the time. If a

parent were to loan their car to their children and the childe committed the offense, the citation would appear in the mail addressed to the owner of the vehicle. “Once you’re behind (a school bus) you can’t see what’s going on around the front,” said Cst. Woodburn. “If it’s stopped and whether the kids are getting on, getting off, crossing the road, not crossing the road, as a driver, until (the students) are literally stepping out into the other lane, you can’t see them. At that point it’s too late, you’re not going to be able to stop safely.” It’s that fraction of a second that the OPP are looking to prevent by getting out into the community and spreading the word.

Greater Napanee

HOME • FARM AUTO INSURANCE

Councillor explains tax policy motion BY ADAM PRUDHOMME Staff Reporter

Sorting out Greater Napanee’s often-confusing tax policy can cause some confusion. An article in last week’s Beaver on the taxation policy meeting mistakenly pegged the ultimate difference in the amount of lowertier municipal property tax rural ratepayers would be charged as compared to urban ratepayers by the end of the five-year phase in period at 15 per cent. According to the motion that was finally agreed to by council in a 6-1 vote, that difference will be about 3.5 per cent by the end of the phase-in. The motion was as follows: ‘That this new taxation policy consider ‘Method 4’ of the Taxation Policy Review Committee final report in so far that we take

the area-rating of fire services, streetlights and sidewalks as included in the report; and finally, that we not leave the OPP issue alone, such that we seek dialogue with the OPP and/or the province to find a clear and final decision as to whether or not the ‘calls for service’ for the OPP can be area-rated within a given municipality; and that we seek that decision within this term of council; and that the phase-in period be changed to five years, with the first year having already been done.” The motion was put forward by Ward 2 councilor Max Kaiser. Along with continuing to look at policing, the biggest change to the final report submitted by the Taxation Policy Review Committee was to stretch the phase in from four years to five. “By the end of the fifth year, the total phase-in

would see a differential, under Method 4, at today’s value, of around 3.5 per cent rebate for the rural from the full rate of the urban,” said Kaiser when contacted by the Beaver to clarify the motion. “In my ward, I represent about three-fifths rural, two-fifths urban, so I really wanted to seek something that was fair and middle ground for everybody,” said Kaiser when asked to explain his motion. “I recognize since amalgamation that a lot of people across rural wards, all of them but specifically South Fredericksburgh and Adolphustown, have seen fantastic rises in the amount of tax dollars that they spend. I think partly the goal of my motion was not just to seek a middle ground, but also to mitigate a sudden further rise to the rural at the benefit of the urban,” he continued.

140 new homes planned to be built in Odessa

BY ADAM PRUDHOMME Staff Reporter

Infrastructure investments made back in 2004 will soon pay dividends for Odessa, as Loyalist Township announced major housing developments coming tot he village in 2017. The first of the developments will be a project known as Millcreek, which will see 140 new homes built over the next seven years on a plot of land off Bridge Street. The project was made possible as a result of municipal, provincial and federal funding of over $12 million dollars to run water and sewer pipes from Odessa to Amherstview. The pipes were installed between 2004-09. “This is what’s great when different levels of government come together,” said Mike Bossio, Liberal MP of Hastings and Lennox Addington who was on hand for a ribbon cutting. “They say water and sewer isn’t ‘sexy’, but this is sexy. Onehundred and forty homes is to me fantastic for the area.” Bossio estimates when

all lots are sold, it could mean an additional 500 people living in Odessa. “The economic development, the job creation for plumbers, carpenters, electricians, excavators, masons, it just goes on and on,” said Bossio. “Then the spinoffs of furniture, appliances, and the rest of it. And ‘Main Street’, the spinoff on Main Street where they have 140 new families coming to the area (will be considerable).” Construction of Millcreek’s first phase is scheduled to begin next spring with the first homes completed later that summer. They anticipate to be able to build about 20 homes per year. Prior to the new water lines, Odessa residents were drawing their water from nearby Mud Lake, which simply wouldn’t have been able to support a subdivision of this magnitude. Millcreek is also just the beginning, as another developer is expected to start with a similar project in the very near future. “Given the high cost of living in places like Toronto and Ottawa, these places are looking more attractive,”

Bossio said of Odessa. “I think there’s going to be a renaissance for rural communities. But if we don’t have the infrastructure in place to make that happen, then we don’t have these developments.” Penny Porter, owner of Millcreek, says the homes will range from $265,000 to $300,000. “We’re really targeting first-time buyers, people that are renting and paying a significant amount in rent,” said Porter. “They’ll be able to get into the housing market and buy their home.” She says they also have some bungalow options for empty nest seniors as well who want to stay in the area. “We’re only 10 minutes from Kingston, a few minutes from Amherstview,” said Porter. “All your kids can walk to school, lots of beautiful parks around you and you can see the beautiful Babcock Mill right across the road.” A grand opening for the public will be held on Sept. 10 where people can view the models and make down payments on lots. Their show home is located at 59 Bridge St. in Odessa.

J. Earl Morrison, Owner-Publisher, 1953-1978

After the better part of 20 years, is Greater Napanee’s debate over urban versus rural taxes over? Well, it’s not quite as ‘over’ as everyone might want it to be, but it’s fair to say that the light at the Combined in 1965 end of the tunnel has never been brighter. with The Napanee And we’re not talking about council’s decision last Express (EST. 1861) and The Deseronto week to lengthen the phase-in of the new policy to five years from four years. We’re talking about the Post (EST. 1904) fact that council has opted to take the time to try to get to the bottom of the policing issue — the one matAn independent ter that defied unanimous resolution among committee members. Council also chose take a pass on comcommunity mittee chair and consultant Gary Scandlan’s recommendation to have no differential for urban and rural newspaper taxes for policing — at least, for now — so it could do its own work examining if and how the cost of policing could be area-rated between urban and rural JEAN MORRISON properties.

Further, not every police call is an emergency and requires a police cruiser to be at an address immediately. Ultimately, the concept of ‘response time’ is nearly impossible to capture in the form of measurable statistics.

Letter to the Editor

Conflicting info in school report As September starts to creep closer and our thoughts turn to getting everything ready for the return to school, I think it is important to remind parents once again of the Limestone District School Board’s plan to meet and decide the future of five of our rural schools this fall. To my knowledge, there will be no public consultations before the board makes their decision to accept or reject the recommendations made in the Long Term Accommodation Plan. In the spring, the Limestone District School Board received the LTAP from Ameresco Asset Sustainability Group. This report, for those who may be unaware, recommends closing Selby, Tamworth, Enterprise, and Newburgh schools and building a new school on the current Centerville PS site, amalgamating the students. However, this amalgamation does not include all Selby School students; the report recom-

mends changing the boundaries and sending some of students currently attending Selby School to The Prince Charles. The other remaining students would attend the ‘new’ school in Centerville. It also recommends redirecting Grade 7 and 8 students for all Greater Napanee schools to Napanee District Secondary School. On July 13, I, along with a number of concerned parents and community members from Selby, attended a community meeting regarding the recommendations proposed by this LTAP. We extended an invitation to our school board trustee, Laurie French, but she opted not to attend. We wanted her to be aware of our concerns, discrepancies we found within the Ameresco report and to take our information and concerns back to the board when they met in the fall, but it was her view that as there was “no new or further information to what we have

already seen,” she would not attend our meeting. What you will read below is information I have found to be conflicting and seemingly inaccurate within the Ameresco report and within the Ministry of Education itself, information that I and other parents and community members felt would be, and is, important for our school board trustees to have before the board meets to vote on whether they will accept the recommendations in the LTAP this fall. In 2003, the Ontario government began to base funding school boards with money for needed school repairs on student enrolment; this funding decreases if student enrolment declines. In fact, the Ontario Ministry of Education has been encouraging School Boards to close and combine schools and build new schools (Ameresco LTAP 2015).

B E AV E R

Going for the ‘cottage’ look Having spent the last weekend away at the cottage with a bunch of friends for a much-needed ‘girls getaway,’ I’m reminded of the charm of cottage life. We don’t all need to have a vacation home to enjoy the look. Cottage-style décor encompasses the relaxed and informal living of the beach, country, or rural retreat. Cottage-style décor is reminiscent of vacation homes and small tucked away cabins that are no fuss, and all about leisure and a slower paced lifestyle. You can achieve this look in your home with the following touches to bring cottage-style décor into your favorite spaces. Whether its summer or winter, who doesn’t love laid back interiors to come home to? COLOURS: While there can be many colours and patterns in a cottage style setting, it’s a good idea to have a unifying theme. We all think of cottage style home near the shore, with lots of whites, neutrals, and colours inspired by the beach as in soft blues and sandy beiges. Sun bleached hues of blues, and greens give a sense of weathered interiors. Cottage inspired décor looks like it has been there for years. Choose colours that are muted, and consider using faux finishes that look white washed. Cabinetry, furniture, and walls will also take on the patina of aged beauty. Varying hues of tans, beiges, and whites give a crisp and relaxing atmosphere that cottage style living is all about. Use beadboard and wainscoting to give interior walls the look and feel of a cottage. FURNITURE: Minimal detailing and mix-and-match furniture is the heart of cottage décor. Furniture is often recycled, purchased from a flea market, or collected from family rejects. Nothing really needs to match, and it shouldn’t, yet the overall effect is charming and comfortable. Pieces are often adapted from one use to another. For example, an old kitchen cupboard can hide towels in a bathroom, or a kitchen table might become a desk. Chairs, tables, cabinetry and kitchen islands can be low maintenance with simple styling. Use slipcovers over couches and chairs in living areas to bring in the colours and textures that

LETTER FROM PAGE 6 In June of this year, the Ontario government announced that it is investing $1.1 billion to repair and renew schools across the province. This investment is being added to the existing $1.6 billion of funding bringing the total up to $2.7 billion dollars. This funding will allow school boards to, according to the Ontario government, “repair roofs, update HVAC units and modernize electrical and plumbing systems. It will also significantly improve visible elements of schools that impact the students learning and well-being, including flooring, walls, ceilings, play equipment and more.” So why is the Ministry of Education pushing school boards to close schools, and why is our school board considering doing so? The Facility Condition Index (the state of the building) is calculated by dividing the value of the school’s

are low maintenance and beckon to relax in them. Wood is a favorite for cottage style décor because of its traditional beginnings. The cottage style dates back to craftsmen and artisans designing and building their own homes and furnishings. If using new furniture, distressing techniques will make furniture look worn, but comfortable and cozy.

Merola Tahamtan Design Time FLOORING: Flooring in cottagestyle homes are often informal and even imperfect. Bare wood floors are a good option. New wood can be made to look old and painted floors can have patterns stenciled on, either to add interest or define areas. Raw planks can be covered with vintage braided rugs. Wall-to-wall carpet can be either too perfect for this style yet tile is okay. Covering any type of flooring with vintage area rugs is another way to get the cottage look. LIGHTING: Collectibles can easily be adapted into lighting fixtures by installing inexpensive lamp parts. Turn an old jug, or tin into a one of a kind lamp. Not sure you want to tackle wiring a lamp? Take a vintage find to a lamp store where you have it adapted to your need for a minimal expense. The more unusual your item, the more fun you’ll have looking at it when it’s electrified with a cute shade. FABRICS: Cottage décor usually calls for a mix of fabrics used for slipcovers, upholstery, curtains, draperies, tableskirts, pillows and more. Co-ordinate a variety of prints like florals, stripes, checks, and plaids for a collected look. Slipcovered furniture is also very popular in a cottage look, offering relaxed and easily updated furnishings. STORAGE AND DISPLAY: Open shelving, pots, baskets, and urns are popular for storage and display. Cottage style décor focuses on light and airy interiors. To achieve this, storage and display items are easy to find items

deficiencies by the replacement value of the school. Therefore schools with an FCI greater than 40 per cent are considered poor and “require upgrading to comply with minimum codes or standards and deterioration has reached the point where major repairs or replacement is necessary” (from ‘Fix Our Schools’). According to the Ameresco report, the schools in the most need of repair or demolition are Enterprise PS with an FCI of 100.51 per cent, Centerville PS at 100.06 per cent, Selby PS at 95.3 per cent, Tamworth PS at 91.40 per cent, and The Prince Charles PS at 63.34 per cent. Approximately two years ago, the Selby school applied for and received a grant which was used to replace the roof and windows. For Selby school to have an FCI at 95.3 per cent, after those two major repairs alone, is inaccurate.

that would be found in the country, farmhouse, or beach home. Heavy, dark storage furniture will overpower the space, and feel clunky and out of character. Instead use open shelving made from natural pine or oak. Garage and antique sales are perfect places to find creative storage ideas. Someone’s old pine bookshelf may be a perfect accent for your cottage décor! ACCESSORIES: Any odd thing can serve as an accessory in a cottage style home, so be on the lookout wherever you go. Charming plates, old hats, musical instruments, interesting frames and heirloom samplers become the center of attention in a comfortable cottage room. Antique shops, tag sales, auctions, and grandma’s attic all reveal a treasure trove of items both useful and decorative. WINDOW TREATMENTS: Cottage décor is informal; window treatments should look light and airy. Consider sheers instead of opaque panels or heavy drapes. For privacy, if you need it, pick simple shades that can hide away during the day. When privacy is not an issue the windows can be left bare. MIXING DÉCORS: Try combining modern materials coupled with cottage décor – the results can be beautiful! The kitchen is the perfect place to add modern marble or granite counters, paired with cottage inspired cabinetry. Modern stainless steel appliances paired with weathered pine flooring, and farmhouse sinks with brushed nickel or copper fixtures is gorgeous. Cottage décor can inspire you to live a more relaxed and laid back lifestyle. A cottage is meant to be lived in, to be enjoyed, and is usually the recipient of all the cast-offs from the real home. But cottage furnishings and accessories have grown in popularity in recent years. Enjoy the relaxed feel of cottage décor in your home.

I cannot speak on the condition of the other schools, but I do know that Newburgh PS is currently in the process of having a new roof installed. Ameresco sourced some of their information for the LTAP from the 2011 government census. In their report they stated that “it is important to assess changes with release of 2016 Census data,” but that information will not be made available until the beginning of February 2017, and that is just for population and dwelling counts. The Limestone Board will meet and vote on the LTAP report in September 2016; however, education statistics from the 2016 Census will not be made available until Nov. 29, 2017. This conflicting information and our concerns were why we asked our trustee to come to our community meeting. We were not asking for information, we wanted to share information with her, for her to

have and to take to the board before they make their decision on the Ameresco report. I encourage all parents within the Limestone school board to read the LTAP report. This report encompasses the entire Limestone District School Board, not just Greater Napanee Schools. My focus has been on Selby PS as this is where my three children attend school. If you have questions regarding the LTAP or find discrepancies as I have, email or call your school board trustee, all e-mail addresses and phone numbers are listed on the LDSB website. If you feel your concerns are not being heard, then I encourage you to go above your trustee, go to the Director of Education, Debra Rantz, and if that fails go to the Minister of Education, Mitzie Hunter. I am. Norah Brien, Greater Napanee

A trip through the pages of The Napanee Beaver 50 Years Ago August 31, 1966 ■ A glider made an unplanned visit to Napanee. Willi Fritz Deleurant, who also happened to be the Canadian gliding champion, was making a marathon trip from the Toronto area all the way to Gananoque. Weather caused a change in plans, however. As he was flying past Peterborough, he noticed two thunderstorm cells forming. He pressed on, but decided to play it safe and land in Napanee. He landed his unpowered aircraft in an open field near the intersection of Highway 401 and Highway 41. The Toronto-to-Gananoque trip would have been the longest flight of its kind to date. ■ A fire destroyed a home west of Odessa. It was not yet clear what caused the fire. Ernestown Township firefighters responded to the call to a two-storey home just before 11:30 p.m. The resident had been away from the house only to return to find the basement fully involved in flames. The building was covered by insurance, but the entire home and all of its contents were a complete loss. He and his wife had only just recently moved to the home.

30 Years Ago September 3, 1986 ■ A freak traffic accident took the lives of two elderly local women. The two women, 79- and 80 years old respectively, were headed east on Water Street and preparing to drop off a passenger when the car suddenly accelerated across Centre Street. It veered right, eventually entering the Napanee River. Another woman, 70, was able to be pulled by nearby pedestrians from the vehicle, which was submerged in the river. It was not clear why the car accelerated and lost control. A post-mortem and coroner’s report were pending. ■ The local Meals on Wheels program was on the verge of expanding its territory. Lennox and Addington Seniors Outreach Services was in the process of bringing the program to those living in the Tamworth area. The program would include the delivery of two hot meals per week. The meals would be prepared at Lendaco before being sent out to clients’ homes. Although part of the program was funded through the provincial government, they would be charged just more than $2 per meal. It was viewed as an essential strategy to help keep seniors living independently.

DSVA events’ finale this weekend

BY ADAM PRUDHOMME Staff Reporter

IGHT sky watchers will have one last opportunity to enjoy a laser-guided tour of the galaxy this weekend as Lennox and Addington County’s Dark Sky Viewing Area hosts Summer’s End Stargazing Evenings on Friday and Saturday. Dark sky photographer Joe Gilker will return for one final presentation, bringing with him a laser pointer and a telescope. He’ll be offering views of the many celestial objects of note that are visible this time of year. “We’ll be re-visiting some of the stuff that I presented last time in the telescope,” said Gilker, noting those who attended his presentation on the civic holiday long weekend will recognize some of the objects in this weekend’s presentation.

So, really, the dark sky makes all the difference for the Milky Way.” His presentation will get underway at 9:30 p.m. on both Friday and Saturday, provided the sky is mostly clear of clouds. Following his presentation he’ll be offering advice on how to take night sky photographs. He’s had several years experience photographing the night sky and his work has been featured in magazines across the world. Anyone interested in attending is encouraged to visit www.DarkSkyViewing.com before they start to make their way to the site to ensure that the conditions are co-operating and the event is still going ahead. The DSVA is located 37 kilometres north of Napanee on County Rd 41.

Police attended and located a male in the parking lot who matched a description of a suspect who had reportedly stolen items from the business and was seen getting into a white Ford van. Police arrested the male

and a search of the van resulted in the seizure of meat and groceries stolen from two other nearby stores and a jacket and four watches stolen from the clothing store that called in the report. Charged with possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine), possession of property obtained by crime, and two counts of theft under $5,000 is a 39-year-old from Seeley’s Bay. Three passengers that were in the van were also arrested and charged. A 59-year-old Kingston man faces charges of possession of property obtained by

A 42-year-old Loyalist Township woman faces charges of possession of property obtained by crime, two counts of theft under $5000, and failure to comply with an undertaking. The 38-year-old man and the woman were held in custody and were scheduled to appear in Napanee provincial court for a bail hearing.

Service Constable Jackie Perry; the garden has quite literally grown since then. With the assistance of community partners, the garden has been generally self-sufficient, Isbester said. Meanwhile, other individual gardens have popped up around the complex. She said it has always been a destination to which she has taken Communities in Bloom judges when they’re in town. “They loved it, not because it gave us ‘points’, but just because it showed how much community involvement (there is in Greater Napanee) and what could be done. Each time we’ve had a different set of judges, they’ve gone back to their communities and (shared what they learned),” she said. “It just sort of keeps overflowing,” Isbester added. “There are many more people who aren’t here today who have had a big or small part in it… That’s why it succeeds.”

As the growing season slowly winds down, those involved with the garden located at the 215 Church St. complex took time to thank those who contributed to its ongoing success. The garden, located in the courtyard of the complex, grew zucchini, tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, onions, radishes, turnips, beans and lettuce under the careful care of volunteer gardeners. On Monday, two major donors to the project were acknowledged: Home Hardware donated many of the plants and other materials to make the garden a reality, while Matrix NAC, the main contractor involved in the construction of the new Napanee Generating Station, donated a chain-link fence around the garden. One of the gardeners, Lisa Miller, said that the

fence has come in handy to keep out cats and other critters. Another gardener, Kylie Parks, said that the fence was installed toward the end of June, just before the vegetables were planted. “(The harvest) goes to anybody in the community,” said Miller, adding that many vegetables have gone to the nearby Jubilee Apartments. Other produce is placed in a cedar-and-aluminum wagon, built by Greater Napanee Mayor Gord Schermermorn and students at NDSS, where residents can grab the veggies they need for a healthy meal. Home Hardware and Matrix NAC have only been a few of the donors who have participated in the garden. Greater Napanee Deputy-Mayor Marg Isbester — who became involved in the garden through her work with Communities in Bloom — said it was the brainchild of Napanee OPP Community

Infrastructure, energy big issues for EOWC Beaver Staff

Lennox and Addington Mutual Insurance Company marked a special milestone recently with its 140th anniversary. Above, L&A Mutual President Rick Walters (left) and Board of Directors Chair Brad Snider cut two anniversary cakes.

Improving rural infrastructure and combatting high energy costs were the key messages delivered by the Eastern Ontario Wardens’ Caucus to provincial cabinet ministers during the Association of Municipalities of Ontario conference in Windsor earlier this month. The EOWC — which represents 13 counties and single-tier municipalities within eastern Ontario, including Lennox and Addington and Hastings — raised a number of issues with representatives of the Ontario Liberal government. Among those issues included: ■ extending natural gas into rural communities for the residential and commercial sector ■ bringing improvements and expansions to the hydroelectricity transmission grid, on an urgent basis, to serve the growing needs of businesses and industries across the region ■ making mobile broadband services available to businesses and residents by closing the coverage and capacity gaps in the current cellular

networks while building a first-responder public safety network that can serve as a model for the provincial and federal levels ■ urging the provincial government to focus on plans for growing eastern Ontario’s economy rather than creating more barriers to development ■ stemming the riding tide of OPP and other emergency services costs, which are impacting the ability to invest in local municipal infrastructure. The EOWC also raised concerns about rising energy costs. “They are increasing at an unprecedented pace, with no end in sight, and the reality is that rural customers are shouldering a disproportionate burden compared to their urban counterparts,” said EOWC Chair and Renfrew County Warden Peter Emon. “High energy costs force families to choose between electricity bills and other basic necessities and services, posing a growing threat of ‘energy poverty’ across our region and the province. They also hurt the growth potential of our businesses, which have also expressed the urgent

need to address grid reliability issues and high expansion costs.” The EOWC delivered a written, formal submission to the Ministry of Energy regarding the provinces’ next Long Term Energy Plan. The submission included recommendations around making the necessary infrastructure investments needed for the expansion of energy systems; bringing a reliable flow of natural gas and electricity to rural and remote area of eastern Ontario; and advocating for more affordable energy solutions for rural Ontario. “We also spoke directly with Ontario ministers about other concerns that create significant financial burdens on municipal budgets, such as the rising cost of policing and emergency services, the broken interest arbitration system contributing to those escalating costs, and the current legal system known as joint and several liability that holds municipalities financially responsible for issues often out of their control and jurisdictions, and raises their insurance premiums,” added L&A County Warden Henry Hogg, who sits on the EOWC.

In the May 26 ‘Snapshots’, The Star Weekly Magazine was featured. Mention was made of Gregory Clark and Jimmie Frise’s features in that newspaper supplement. An in-depth look at this prolific pair was promised in a future column. This is it.

He took time out to spend three years with the Canadian Mounted Rifles during the First World War, resulting in his being awarded the Military Cross for gallantry. During the 1939-1945 global conflict he was a war correspondent with the same paper. Jimmie Frise was born into the humble surroundings of a farm home on Scugog Island near Port Perry.

His life-long ambition to be an illustrator was realized when he went to Toronto at age 20, and submitted a cartoon to The Toronto Star. He was hired almost on the spot. His true-to-life funny bone was manifest in his new comic series, ‘Life’s Little Comedies’.

They felt it was an omen when, as they rounded a random corner, a man was sitting at the foot of the ideal tree. The farmer admired their gumption and told them they could have it, for the price of his joy to see “two city men prove they are as great as their grandfathers!” In short, after the arbour was lying dormant, another man in overalls appeared. As it turned out, he owned the farm and the tree — the other was his hired man. The owner refused money for it, but was thankful that it was now ready for his winter fuel supply!

Peewee Express power their way to gold at Eastern Canadians Red-hot bats lead Napanee BY ADAM PRUDHOMME Staff Reporter

Like a run away train, nothing was able to stop the Napanee Spud’s Restaurant Peewee Express once they got rolling at the Eastern Canadians in Bellechasse, QC. Napanee went 6-0 at the tournament, capturing the gold medal with a 5-2 victory over the Bellechasse Thunder. That was one of the few games the Express faced any adversity the entire weekend. Brock Fencott made the start for the Express and found himself getting a bit squeezed with a tight strike zone. He allowed a run over the first three innings while the Express bats struggled to get anything going

against the Thunder. That all turned around in a big way when Jacob Martin ripped a base hit to tie the game at 1-1. “Basically I just took the first pitch, it was right down broadway and scored that run,” said Martin. His hit sparked a five run inning for the Express. “Our pitcher had been lights out the whole tournament,” said Martin. “To see him down like that because of the umpire was bad. We knew something had to happen to turn everything around.” “It felt good but we knew we weren’t done,” added Austin Sutcliffe, who plays first for the Express said of tying the game. “We knew we had to keep putting runs up on the board against Quebec and keep up the pressure.” The Thunder would add another run in their final at bat to make it a little interesting but the Express were able to hold on for the victo-

ry. Getting into the final was a bit of a nail biter as well as the Express squeaked out a 2-1 victory over the Wellesley Wildcats in the undefeated game to move straight to the finals. Liam Walsh drove in both runs. “In a close game there’s more pressure on you to perform better,” said Sutcliffe. “We were right in the game and getting loud.” Prior to the playoffs the Express steamrolled the competition, going 4-0 in pool play while outscoring their opponents 52-2. “Everyone in the lineup was able to come up with a timely hit when we needed one,” said Express coach Chris McKeown, noting that the entire roster contributed. “In the tight games we had the hits when it counted, when we had runners on to cash them in.”

Lucky 13: Bantam Express girls win Eastern Canadians in extras Underdog Napanee bests top-ranked Guelph Gators in thriller to earn gold in Moncton Beaver Sports

hanneling their inner underdog spirit, the Napanee Express Bantam girls gritted their way through a tense 13inning game to upset the Guelph Gators 7-4 and capture the Eastern Canadian gold medal in Moncton, NB. Heading into the finals, Napanee had never bested Guelph, losing all four times they had met previous this summer, including two losses via a mercy rule and once earlier in the tournament. Early on in the finals their woes against the Gators persisted as Guelph jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the second. This time around the Express had an answer as Jenna Kane knocked a single to cash Brianna Burt who had previously doubled. The Express battled back to tie an inning later when Jordan Mumby connected on a single to score Aly Kane. In the top of the fourth the Gators looked to retake the lead when one of their batters launched a rocket to

C

left field, over the head of Olivia Fenwick. She sprinted to the warning track and made a perfect relay toss to shortstop Jenna Kane, who turned and fired a strike to Maddie Brant to nail the runner at third. Guelph would go on to scratch out a run later in that inning to go up 3-2 but once again the Express responded when Lauren Daize screamed a line drive down the first base line and circled the bases. Napanee took a brief lead later that inning when Fenwick drove in Burt. A couple of Express errors allowed the Gators to tie it up but Napanee would settle down from there. They turned a double play in the ninth inning and held the Gators scoreless throughout extra innings until they broke it open in the 13th. Aly Kane drove a ball up the middle to score Jenna Kane. Fenwick would later score on a ground ball to second by Brant. Mumby would tack on another run to make it 7-4. Daize shut the Gators down in the bot-

tom of the inning to secure the thrilling victory. She finished the game with non strike outs and was named co-pitcher of the tournament by going 4-1 with a save and 40 strike outs. Napanee started the tournament with a perfect 4-0 record, beating Nova Scotia 8-0, PEI 3-0, Aurora, Ont. 9-0 and Moncton, N.B. 6-5 in eight innings. In the playoffs they met their eventual finals nemesis in Guelph, losing 6-0. That meant the Gators advanced directly to the finals while Napanee had to win two straight to reach the gold medal game. They did just that, beating Aurora 3-0 and Moncton 4-2 to set up the thrilling gold medal final. Napanee had entered the tournament as Ontario’s fourth seed following a disappointing showing at provincials. They entered the Eastern Canadians on a mission to show they are a better team than that. Safe to say they left no doubt about that with their gold medal performance.

Local MMA fighter reclaims straw weight title Set to defend title Sept. 9 in Kingston

BY ADAM PRUDHOMME Staff Reporter

Ashley LéTournéau will head into the first ever Legends Fight League Mixed Martial Arts event in Kingston next week as a the reigning strawweight champion. The Napanee mixed martial artist made sure of that by capturing the title via unanimous decision over Jolene Dennis last month in Watertown, NY. The victory was a measure of revenge for LéTournéau, who previously lost to Dennis in June. For that fight, she had just 24 hours notice prior to the match. This time around LéTournéau, who trains out

of Napanee’s Diamond Fitness MMA, had a little more time to prepare. “With every fight, with every opponent your training style becomes different, your game plan becomes different,” LéTournéau said of facing an opponent in a rematch. After the final bell sounded and the decision was placed in the judges hands, she knew she had reclaimed the title. “I was pretty confident,” she said. “You know how many shots you've got in, even though you’re getting hit by them as well. You know if your shots are landing cleaner.” The fight would go the distance, but early on it looked like it might be an early tap for the Napanee fighter. “She caught me in a really good choke at the beginning of the fight,” said LéTournéau. “So for me to

get through all three rounds and have a war, it was really good to get the win.” LéTournéau’s fight, which was a co-main event, was just one of three to feature Diamond MMA trained fighters as Nolan Brant and Jake Donovan were also on the card in Watertown. “(Brant) was the first fight of the night and he won in a submission in the first round,” said Jay Kelly, owner of Diamond Fitness MMA. “Then Jake Donovan, he was stopped in a TKO in the second round. It was the first fight he’s ever had and he fought like a champ.” Kelly says it was a successful trip south of the boarder for his gym, which is starting to make a name for itself on the international MMA scene. “Everything that we wanted to happen happened, other than Jake’s result,” said Kelly. “But Jake learned more about himself in that fight than he has putting in the time and training. That’s the thing with this sport, it changes a person. It makes you know if you really want to do it. He’s pumped to go on Sept. 9.” That’s when Kingston will be home to its first ever

God saw him getting tired, A cure was not to be. He wrapped him in His loving arms And whispered “Come with Me”. He suffered much in silence, His Sprit did not bend, He faced his pain with courage Until the very end. He tried so hard to stay with us But his fight was not in vain God took him to His loving home And freed him from his pain.

4 May 1923, Greenock, Scotland 23 August 2016, North Vancouver, British Columbia Beth died on a glorious, sunny, west coast day at North Shore Hospice, a beautiful time and place to release a spirit. Lively and loved wife of Wesley McKinnon Alkenbrack (d.2007), she was predeceased by her childhood pal and brother Ian Gibson (d.1994) and will be held in vivid memory by her daughters Betsy and Catherine; missed by her bereft grandchildren Kelly, Matt and Robyn Quigley, her son-in-law Stephen Quigley and all her Quigley in-laws. She leaves 3 generations of nieces, nephews and their families with whom she kibbutzed and communicated until her death: Gibsons, Alkenbracks, Harts, Grennells, Trepaniers, Du Chenes, Robertsons, Tennants, Battehs..... and the River Road Girls. Beth left a working legacy of two generations of students inspired by her sometimes unorthodox history classes at Napanee and District Secondary School, as well as lively debates on civil society and appropriate public discourse for those visiting her in the Vice Principal's Office. She loved all of her students and colleagues, saw them regularly and stayed in touch with them throughout her life. Beth lived fully engaged: news junky, dance and theatre aficionado, constant traveller, keen community volunteer, curler, knitter and smocker, addicted shoe shopper, sunfish sailor, avid bridge player and in her eighties she learned and loved playing poker. She rode horseback, cottaged and travelled with her unruly grandchildren, even as an octogenarian. And beyond........ nothing interested her more than the events in Kelly, Matt and Robyn's lives. Beth's last decade was spent on the west coast, closer to her kids and grandkids and she enjoyed both the seawalk on Dallas Road in Victoria and the urban outlook at 15th and Lonsdale in North Vancouver. The family profoundly thanks Dr. Helen Karimirad, Dr. Jenny Shaw, Ruth Gillespie, Mike- her visiting physiotherapist and the Coastal Health visiting wound nurses. All of you gave stellar care and understanding, in this time of underfunded medical services; finding Beth quality of life. She appreciated all of you. Our thanks go to the wonderful staff and amazing place that is North Shore Hospice and our kudos to the caring independent living communities and her friends at both Somerset House in Victoria and Summerhill PARC in North Vancouver, where Beth thrived until her health failed her. An outspoken pragmatist, her instruction was, "No funeral." However, she loved a party and we will have a wake next summer at the family cottage on the Bay of Quinte in Ontario, where Beth and Wes's ashes can rest together. In Beth's memory please have a rousing political discussion with friends or donate to North Shore Hospice Society, Napanee District Community Foundation or any charity of your choice.

Raiders start pre-season on winning note Nic Case scores twice to beat Picton 3-2

Beaver Sports

elson Powers was the hero as the Napanee Raiders opened the pre-season with a 3-2 overtime victory against the Picton Pirates in Wellington. Powers converted on a pass from Elliot Belzile and Marcus Dorsey just 1:52 into extra time to secure the victory for the visitors. Nic Case got Napanee on the board at 3:31 mark of the first with a short-handed goal with help from Chris Rogalsky. Picton tied it up in the second only to see

N

Case strike again in the final seconds of the middle frame to retake the lead. Dexter Hughson assisted on the play. The lead held for just over five minutes into the third when Picton banged home the equalizer to set up the overtime finish. Matt Loveys started in net for Napanee, stopping all 16 shots he faced. He gave way to Jeremy Piazzi at the halfway mark of the game, who went 16-for-18 in save attempts. Napanee dressed just two veteran players in

Rogalsky and Loveys, filling out the rest of the lineup with rookies. Napanee will continue its exhibition season next Wednesday when they will travel to Gananoque to face the Islanders for an 8:15 p.m. puck drop. They'll wrap up the practice season two nights later on Sept. 9 when they host the Islanders for a 7:30 p.m. tilt at the Strathcona Paper Centre. The regular season begins in earnest on Sept. 18 when Napanee travels to Amherstview to take on the Jets. Puck drop is 7 p.m.

Reverend David Jones speaks from the pulpit during the annual Pilgrimage Service, held Sunday at Old Hay Bay Church. The service was part of the Roots 2016 event, which saw descendants of the original members of the church, which was built back in 1792, visit from across North America. They also paid homage to the church congregation members that drowned crossing the bay in 1819. Today the church is the oldest surviving Methodist building in Canada.
