Enshrining property rights in the Canadian Constitution has been a long-standing goal for local Conservative MP Scott Reid and Progressive Conservative MPP Randy Hillier. This week, they announced they were stepping up their efforts to achieve that goal. In a press conference at Queen’s Park last Friday, Reid and Hillier announced that they would be introducing identical motions in both the provincial legislature and the House of Commons that would give property rights constitutional protection under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. If approved by both the provincial legislature and the House of Commons, it would represent the first time the Charter of Rights and Freedoms was amended since it came into force in 1982. The amendment would add the right to property to the rights already embedded in the Charter, including the right to life, liberty, and the security of person. Further, the amendment would only apply to Ontario residents. In an telephone interview from Parliament Hill, Reid said this kind of protection of property rights has been an issue for him since his days as a researcher with the former Reform Party in the 1990s. “It’s important… This is really about trying to ensure that the government can’t confiscate your hard-earned possessions,

destroy your livelihood in some cases, ruin your retirement, by expropriating the value of your property without compensation. That’s all we’re trying to do,” Reid said. Reid indicated that he believed that, should the motion get passed at the provincial level, the House of Commons would also approve the motion since the amendment only affects Ontario residents. “I don’t anticipate opposition happening here if it receives support in Queen’s Park.” Reid said he’s less optimistic that the Liberal government in Ontario, however, will be as supportive of the motion. “I suspect that the Dalton McGuinty government will oppose it, and I say that simply because the day we proposed it… a Liberal MPP stood up in legislature and condemned it in a member’s statement. We hadn’t even had our press conference yet.” With a provincial election looming in October, Reid said he believes that since the Progressive Conservatives in Ontario have expressed support for the motion, a PC government would pass the motion, or something similar to it. Hillier could not be contacted for comment; however, in a press release issued in relation to his and Reid’s announcement, Hillier said, “I’ve been an advocate for stronger property rights, both in Ontario and Canada. This is the first step towards real guarantees for property owners in Ontario.”

Correction The caption for a photograph on the front page in last week’s Napanee Beaver contained an incorrect name. In the photograph, Troy Fleming is pictured jousting with Cassandra Wease at the Strathcona Paper Centre during Family Day activities. The Beaver regrets the error.

While there are some changes taking place at the Napanee Beaver these days, the newspaper’s ownership has not. The Beaver — Lennox and Addington’s oldest local newspaper, founded in 1870 — has been the subject of some widely circulating rumours suggesting that the newspaper had been sold.

1953, has not sold the publication, and retains full and independent ownership. This week, however, will see some changes in the Beaver. Starting with this edition, the newspaper is now being printed at Performance Printing in Smiths Falls. The newspaper has also moved to automated flyer insertion. The only change our readers could notice as a result of the new printing

press is a slightly larger page size, moving from a 15 -inch depth to a 15.5-inch depth. The Beaver is also continuing its advertising distribution relationship with the EMC family of newspapers, a relationship which has been ongoing for the past three years. This distribution arrangement, however, is co-operative in nature, and both companies remain independent entities.

Decorating Q & Aâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s by Your Local Paint & Paper Experts Although I used this space to congratulate Malcolm two weeks ago, I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t elaborate on an obstacle that he has over come. It has been his ability to persevere and over come this obstacle that we are so proud of. A couple of years ago, Malcolm fell hard around the fourth gate during his very first downhill ski race. He was so upset we immediately thought he had hurt himself. The tears were for nothing more than the embarrassment he expressed due to the fact that he was the only skier to have fallen. This fear of further embarrassment has shadowed him since. At what age does a fear like this or a fear of challenge become present? Most of us experience it but, we certainly arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t born being apprehensive to give fully. The feeling is learned. Think of the potential awaiting each of us in the absence of fear. If you fall, get back up and go. And that is exactly what Malcolm did. Two weekends ago, Malcolm decided to give the course his best shot. He pushed out of the starting gate with great determination. He hugged each gate tightly as heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d been coached. While he picked up speed and leaned into the sixth gate, his right ski boot ejected out of his binding. Down he wentâ&#x20AC;Ś..but not for long! Before his coach could make it down the hill to him, Malcolm had picked himself up, climbed back up the hill, reengaged his binding, snapped his right ski on and completed the race. I stood at the side of the hill with tears on my cheeks. He had fallen and learned to get back up! And this past weekend was icing on the cake! Here he is on the right side of the podium with his first medal. A beautiful bronze medallion now hangs from his bedpost and we remember to talk about giving our best no matter what we are doing.

This photograph taken by astronomer Terence Dickinson at his home in Yarker shows the space shuttle Discovery docked with the International Space Station streaking across the night sky last week. Those wishing to catch a glimpse of the space shuttle should watch the skies at 6:58 p.m. this Monday. The two spacecraft â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which happen to be 400 kilometres away â&#x20AC;&#x201D; will appear as a bright, unblinking yellow star moving from west to east directly overhead. The trip across the sky will take about four minutes. Discovery is currently engaged in its final mission before retirement.

Did you hear about…? H, rumours. They’re the lifeblood of any newspaper. Usually, however, the newspaper isn’t the subject of the rumours. But, that was the situation in which we at the Beaver find ourselves. For about the last two weeks, a rumour has been circulating around Napanee and environs that our venerable weekly newspaper had been sold. We were contacted by MyFM to ‘confirm or deny’ the scuttlebutt. When you’re in the business of getting other people to ‘confirm or deny’ things, it’s odd to receive a phone call asking you to ‘confirm or deny’ something. But deny we did — the correct course of action in this situation given the fact that the newspaper had not been sold. Nevertheless, the rumour continued to circulate, and apparently is still making the word-of-mouth rounds. Well, being the subject of rumours around town is flattering in a way, but the fun’s over now, folks — we haven’t been sold. Jean Morrison, who has been owner of The Napanee Beaver since she and her late husband J. Earl

A

Morrison took the newspaper over from the Beaver’s founding family, the Templetons, back in 1953, is still the sole owner of The Napanee Beaver. We’re still one of a dwindling breed in Ontario: an independent community newspaper. If rumours are the lifeblood of the news business, they are also notoriously the lifeblood — or at least the omnipresent distraction — of small towns. While there are lots of generalizations about small towns that just don’t hold true, the concept of ‘small town gossip’ isn’t one of them. In small towns, ‘where everybody knows everybody’, it doesn’t take much to get the rumour mill a-grinding. Sometimes they’re malicious rumours; sometimes they’re just simply mistakes, a misunderstanding that develops a life

of its own. (We certainly think the Beaver rumour falls into the latter category.) It’s been this way for some time, and any protestations on our part aren’t going to stop the rumour mill from spinning when a juicy tidbit of information comes along. But, as this incident reminds us, sometimes the juicy story making the rounds can quite often turn out to be false. When that juicy tidbit comes your way, it might be worth pausing and reflecting about the veracity of the story, and whether it’s worth your while to pass that tidbit on to the next eager recipient. Someday, you might be the subject of a juicy tidbit yourself (as we found out most recently). Oh, and did we mention that the Beaver hasn’t been sold?

We want to hear from you! Send your Letters to the Editor to beaver @bellnet.ca, or send them to 72 Dundas Street East, Napanee, ON, K7R 1H9

We are complaining about the bylaw that has been passed by Greater Napanee Town Council to increase taxi fares in Napanee. The seniors’ fare was rasied from $6.50 to $7, and the regular fares from $7 to $7.50. We realize with the price of insurance and gasoline for the taxi companies that this is necessary. However, the bylaw creates another $2 added to each fare crossing a taxi zone. Therefor, most people going to a doctor, dentist, hospital, church, for blood work, medicinge, basic groceries, hardware, hair stylist, barber or to pay rent, the return trip costs a senior $18, regular fare $19. A senior lives on an old age pension and a supplement. Some also receive a Canada pension. Some non-seniors are on disability pensions and otehr limited incomes. Some of us have changed our places of business if we are able to walk to another business that is closer. Most of us will only be able to go to church once a month. The taxi companies will be affected, as will other businesses. The zone that was placed at the railroad overpass on Centre Street certainly does cost everyone needing groceries. Please rethink this bylaw, council members. Most of us do not have incomes sufficient to pay these prices. Fran McLean, Napanee, with signatures from 15 other Napanee residents affixed to the letter

Nice new park needs winter care In my letter I would like to express a comment and concerns. My comments first. I would like to express my accolades to the Town Of Greater Napanee for the superb efforts and reconstruction of Springside Park. This an area for all to enjoy and has turned out to be tantamount to that of a ‘big city’ effort. It provides a safe and clean area with a safe an ‘stumble free’ area for walking, especially for those that use it as an area for therapeutic needs, such as myself (and there are many, many of us). The dog walkers, just plain walkers for enjoyment and yes, even the romantics all, appear to be enjoying the facility as is evidenced by the volume of people in the park. Herein lie my concerns, however: the winter maintenance, or total lack thereof, of the walkway. I’m sure that the younger folks (kids) enjoy the slipping, sliding and tom foolery —up until the point of a severe head trauma as a result of a blow with the Quarry Stone Wall that was so aptly and beautifully put into place. Or a slide down the slippery snow and ice covered bank into the river. I realize that the most vulnerable areas have been protected and the entire parkway cannot nor should not be cordoned off. However, without some proper winter maintenance, the winter time hazards for slips and falls is tremendous. Especially, with the total absence of winter pathway maintenance; espe-

Braving the cold

cially for those of us who came to rely on this walkway as a smooth, stumble free access to meet our or at least some part of, the therapeutic needs of walking on a regular basis. I have contacted Mr. Hill, Director of Recreation and Mr. Callery CAO of the Town, twice as a matter of fact and have received no response of any sort, not even to acknowledge my e mails. I have even asked them to redirect me if I was contacting the wrong office. I have even expressed my thoughts that perhaps they wanted to keep this area as a ‘nature trail.’ A very noble thought to be considered. But to what end? Safety? Do you realize that there is not even a ‘Use At Your Own Risk’ sign posted anywhere in this park? Now there’s yet another invitation for liability. I expect that if I did hear from these gentlemen, it would include statements concerning and including budgets and manpower as well as other rhetoric. Well shouldn’t that snow removal from the pathways have been taken into consideration the same as snow removal from the driveway and parking lot? The same consideration as garbage pickup, light bulbs, gardening and on and on? Thanks for listening and here’s hoping heard, my opinions. This was not meant to ‘slight or demean’ anyone. Just a taxpayer with opinions.

A horse-drawn wagon ride was one of several events going on during The Prince Charles School’s second annual Winter Carnival, held at the school last Thursday. Just like the world famous Quebec City event, the school had games, baked goods, outdoor activities and live performances by students.

Vets legislation shouldn’t die Where is the legislation? The government of the day, through the Minister of Veterans Affairs has made several announcements and promises on Bills C-55 (New Veterans Charter), which has received first reading in the House of Commons but has not progressed to the Committee level. Similar announcements and promises have been made on Bill-480 by the Minister of Finance (Removal of GST from

poppies and wreath purchases) for which no legislation has yet been tabled. As your readers know, the tabling and passage of these bills with Royal Assent will not be possible should the government decide to call an election. The Royal Canadian Legion has written to both ministers on the matters of legislative procedure and has received assurances that these matters are being looked

into. These bills, however, may die on the order paper if an election is called and leave Canada’s disabled veterans, their families and The Royal Canadian Legion without the legislation they all need. The Royal Canadian Legion writes this letter because we care.

Singing frogs announce spring HEN it’s -18 degrees out, you can always get a rise out of Kathy Jones at Bird Studies Canada by announcing that you heard a frog singing recently. Kathy is the Aquatic Surveys Volunteer and Data Coordinator at Bird Studies Canada in Port Rowan, and with the entire Great Lakes Basin under her watchful eye, there is never any lack of work. March always seems to come far too quickly. Somehow though, with her team of assistants, she manages to keep on top of things. With cold weather and lots of ice still upon us, it seems difficult to believe that one day it will all disappear, and the wetlands once again will be filled with the songs of frogs and marsh birds. Animals, especially frogs, are great indicators of the health of our environment since they respond readily to environmental changes. For the past nine years, I have had the pleasure of seeking volunteers to assist in monitoring local marshes as part of the Community Wildlife Monitoring Program, involving two opportunities – FrogWatch Ontario and the Marsh Monitoring Program. FrogWatch Ontario is a program designed with families in mind due to its simplicity and ease of entering data on the FrogWatch website. The Marsh Moni-

W

toring Program is geared to those who are seeking something a little more structured and challenging. Both will be covered at a workshop I am holding at Quinte Conservation on March 7th, commencing at 7:00 a.m. Bird Studies Canada (BSC), in partnership with Environment Canada, the Bay of Quinte Remedial Action Plan and Quinte Conservation, have partnered in this effort to evaluate the condition of our local wetlands. It was over 20 years ago when the Bay of Quinte Area of Concern (AOC) was identified by the International Joint Commission as degraded and in need of remediation. A mix of toxic contaminants, bacterial, and nutrient overloads had led to great imbalances in the aquatic ecosystem of the bay. Plant and animal diversity was being lost, and habitats, especially wetlands were disappearing or seriously degraded. The Bay of Quinte Remedial Action Plan’s Restoration Council carries out actions with local partners in its efforts to restore the Bay and its drainage area. Wildlife monitoring is part of the process as their overall populations tell us a lot about our progress. As coordinator for the Bay of Quinte AOC, I am once again looking for volunteers to take part in the program to monitor birds and frogs in marshes within, and even beyond, the Bay of Quinte water-

Terry Sprague

Outdoor R ambles shed. The Marsh Monitoring Program, established in 1994, contains two components, monitoring birds and monitoring frogs. Participants who choose to participate in this program can do one, or both. Monitoring the marsh birds involves twice yearly visits to the marsh of your choice, for 15 minutes each visit, between May and July. If participants decide to monitor the amphibians too, that is done three times during the year for three minutes each between April and late June. Volunteers will receive training CDs and instructions on how to proceed with the monitoring. The ambitious program was designed to

aid the conservation of marsh habitat by establishing baseline assessments of bird and amphibian populations and by monitoring population changes and habitat requirements of marsh birds and amphibians over the long term. What makes the frog monitoring aspect of the MMP so attractive is that we have only eight species in the immediate Quinte area, and their calls significantly differ from each other. This is where I come in. At the Marsh Monitoring workshop at Quinte Conservation on March 7th, I will teach prospective volunteers how easy it is to separate the various species we have in this area, and I will also go through a number of the birds and their calls that you are apt to encounter during your monitoring efforts. I will also walk you through the protocol and show you how easy it is to set up your survey stations. Those who volunteer will receive a package of material from Bird Studies Canada, including a monitoring CD, as well as an identification recording of those species com-

mon to wetlands. Volunteers who choose FrogWatch Ontario can enter their data directly online. The workshop commences at 7 p.m., and while there is no cost to attend, it would be helpful if you could let me know if you are attending, so I can arrange for seating and refreshments. Quinte Conservation is located just west of Belleville, at 2061 Old Highway 2. More information on both FrogWatch Ontario and the Marsh Monitoring Program can be obtained from my website at www.naturestuff.net.

A trip through the pages of The Napanee Beaver 60 Years Ago February 28, 1951 n Members of the Napanee Royal Canadian Legion voted unanimously in favour of a resolution calling on Lennox and Addington County to drop the word ‘memorial’ from its proposed new building. The legion argued that the proposed uses for the new building — which would be located on Dundas Street West — would not be fitting for a true ‘memorial’ building. Some members also said that the county failed to consult with community residents to determine just what they’d like to see the new building used for. The building was to have a lounge, an auditorium and several small meeting rooms. The building would also be home to the Department of Agriculture and the L&A Children’s Aid Society. n Local vegetable growers were getting together to make sure they were getting fair prices for their produce. The L&A Vegetable Growers’ Association signed a petition agreeing to refrain from signing a contract for canned good crops until a satisfactory price could be negotiated through the Ontario Vegetable Growers’ Marketing Board.

35 Years Ago March 3, 1976

n A delegation from Napanee was on its way to Toronto to find out why 24 beds were being closed at Lennox and Addington County General Hospital. The local hospital was one of 18 in eastern Ontario that were advised to reduce their number of active beds in order to reduce their budgets. The cuts came in spite of words of assurance from local MPP James Taylor, who had said that the new Ontario Ministry of Health policy would not result in bed reductions for the Napanee or Picton hospitals. n Local municipal officials advised L&A County Board of Education trustees that the rising cost of education was becoming too big a burden for county taxpayers to bear. The municipal officials were invited to a meeting of the trustees. Those officials made it clear they would like to see the board start to trim its budget to minimize the effect on residential taxpayers. Board chair Bruce Medd advised the local politicians that increases in provincial education grants were “far less than inflation” and that an budget increase was likely unavoidable.

Church gets connected with computer course Free sessions at St. Luke’s in Camden East designed to help adults improve computing skills By Seth DuChene EDITOR HILE it's no secret that computers have made it easier for people to connect with each other, St. Luke’s Anglican Church is taking a different approach to that phenomenon. The Camden East church is hosting a free computer class for adults at its Shirley Memorial Hall each Tuesday from March 22 to April 26. While the church is providing the venue and a simple meal before the session, Open Book, administered by the Algo-

W

nquin and Lakeshore Catholic District School Board, is providing the computers and the tutors. Rev. John vanStone, who is minister for both St. Luke’s and Christ Church in Tamworth, said the concept for a computer course started a few years ago when members of the church were brainstorming on ways to conduct some outreach into the community as well as bring members of the church together for a common goal. Despite the fact that the church had "a lot of good ministries happening," Rev. vanStone said there was a sense that they needed a different kind of project they could work on together. He also said the

date; and the church now has a new, common goal on which to work. Rev. vanStone said that church members will work on preparing the meal before each computer session, as well as provide child care for those participants who require the service. As far as the computer course itself, vanStone says that participants are not required to attend every session, nor do they need to have a certain level of computer literacy in order to participate. He said the tutors will try to match what they're teaching to the particular need of the student, from computer basics to

members of the church did what faith communities do in these situations: they prayed. Ultimately, Rev. vanStone made a connection with Open Book, a program aimed at providing essential skills to adults. That program was looking for a site north of Highway 401. "It was literally an answer to prayer," said Rev. vanStone. He describes the arrangement as a 'win-win-win.' He said that adults looking to improve their computer skills now have a place to have their questions answered in a welcoming environment; Open Book now has a new location to fulfill its man-

more advanced questions. Since many people who are unfamiliar with computers find them intimidating. Rev. vanStone said the goal is to provide a “warm and friendly” environment in which to assist participants. “We want people of whatever background to come,” he said. “We’re excited about it, for sure.” A meal of soup and buns will be served from 6-6:30 p.m., while the session will take place from 6:30-8:30 p.m. For more information or to reserve a spot, call vanStone at 613-378-1281, or e-mail jpvanstone@yahoo.com.

Relay For Life plans get running this weekend By Dominik Wisniewski BEAVER STAFF WRITER HE organizers of Napanee’s annual Relay for Life are hosting a kickoff party this weekend, and they have a lot of things to celebrate for 2011. Now in its sixth year in Greater Napanee, the fundraiser will be held on June 10 at the Napanee Dis-

T

trict Secondary School track. According to Relay for Life organizer Taralynn Richmond, the kickoff is this Sunday, March 6, from 2 to 4 p.m. at Louie’s Restaurant in downtown Napanee. “We have some new and exciting events and entertainment planned,” she said. “It’s really our introduction to relay for the year, so it’s an opportunity for us to give all the teams some new infor-

mation about the event.” In addition to highlighting the previous year, organizers will also reveal levels reached by teams during the 2010 incentive program. “There were ‘extreme’, ‘dream’ and ‘ultimate’ teams, so we’ll be announcing the teams that made it to those levels,” Richmond said. “This year we are also starting a Relay for Life awards ceremony and every year we’re

going to honour three different individuals or teams.” This weekend, Richmond will announce the first recipients: a team, volunteer and volunteer organization. “That will be a nice surprise for some people that aren’t expecting that,” she said. “It will be a big kickoff to a lot of new stuff for this year, and a flashback to a lot of stuff from last year.” Richmond said that a

brate someone who has gone through cancer treatment,” she said. “It’s really something that’s important to families, and it becomes an annual event that all family members can do together.” Seeing these new families being introduced to ones that have been involved with the relay for years, is another important role of the event, Richmond said. “It’s a great thing for other families to interact with each other, especially when they are going through such a difficult time,” she said. “New families... could really look to other people, sort of as a support group.” This June, communities across the country will host similar relays to benefit the Canadian Cancer Society. Just as the local fundraiser has seen incredible growth from its inception, so has the national event. According to the Canadian Cancer Society, the first Relay For Life event in Canada raised $85,000 in 1999. Since then, these events have raised over $52 million at 474 events across Canada, as of 2009. This Sunday’s kickoff party is the first opportunity for teams to sign up for Relay 2011, with team kits available that day.

NOTICE OF ANNUAL MEETING - The 116th Annual Meeting of the Amherst Island Mutual Insurance Company will be held at the Amherst Island Public School on WED. MARCH 16 2011 at 8:00PM. Purpose 1) To receive the audited financial statements for the year ended Dec. 31 2010. 2) To elect/re elect Directors for a three year term ( candidates are asked to submit their intention to seek election at least 3 days prior to the meeting, to the Secretary of the Company ) 3) To appoint Auditors for 2011 4) To transact such business as may properly be brought before the meeting including reconsideration of By Law No. 33 Remuneration. Secretary/ Manager: W. Bruce Caughey 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, 2010 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, 2010. We expressed an unmodified audit opinion on those financial statements in our report dated February 25, 2011. The summary financial statements do not contain all the disclosures required by Canadian generally accepted accounting principles. 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 Canadian generally accepted accounting principles. 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 Canadian generally accepted accounting principles. WILKINSON & COMPANY LLP KINGSTON, Canada Chartered Accountants February 25, 2011 Licensed Public Accountants

new fundraising target will be announced as well. “Last year we raised about $160,000 and that’s absolutely amazing. Kingston and Belleville had relays for many, many years and this is the 27th year the relay has been in Canada,” she added. “This will be the sixth relay in Greater Napanee, and the first was was sort of put together in a couple of months. It raised about $11,000 in 2006 and we’ve just been exploding every year after that.” Although the local fundraiser has now reached the $500,000 mark in five years, Richmond says she does not foresee that kind of growth continuing. “Getting $160,000 out of a small community I think is just fantastic, but having gotten to this point, I don’t think we’re going to see our numbers jumping (by that much) every year,” she said. “However, it’s an incredible event and we want to keep it fresh and fun for people coming back.” Richmond pointed out that, sadly, new families will be looking for a way to fight back this year. “Every year there are more and more families looking for some way to fight back; in memory of someone they have lost, or to cele-

Varty Lake swim program needs lifeline By Dominik Wisniewski BEAVER STAFF WRITER ITH summer just around the corner, Stone Mills Township is hoping its final call to keep the Varty Lake Swim Program afloat will not fall on deaf ears. The three-week volunteer-run program has taught countless kids how to swim for decades, but now that its co-ordinator and committee members have stepped down, its future is uncertain. In an interview with Deputy Clerk Roger

W

Hogan, he said that four separate job postings for a new volunteer co-ordinator have not been successful. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to note that this hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been a municipal program all along, and council would still like to see this program run at armâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s length from the township,â&#x20AC;? he told the Beaver. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still looking for a volunteer co-ordinator since weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had nobody jump up to the plate to take on the responsibility.â&#x20AC;? That responsibility includes the hiring of a beach front supervisor, instructors and volunteers;

co-ordinating payroll and accounts payable; and organizing school bus service for participants, while working with the Canadian Red Cross, since the program is based upon the standard Red Cross program. If a co-ordinator is found soon the program would begin on July 4, but the township has already started investigating other options, Hogan said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Essentially the program was run with no input from the municipality. The township provided the committee with about $2,500 each year, and that

was the total contribution to the entire program,â&#x20AC;? he explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After the swim program this past year basically everybody quit. Everybody just burned out I guess.â&#x20AC;? Since then Hogan has been working with the former co-ordinator to bring the program in house. That work has led to meetings with Greater Napanee Recreation department staff. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I met with Vicky Hallam (manager of recreation) in Napanee to see if there was some sort of program where we could work together with Greater

Napanee,â&#x20AC;? Hogan said, adding that two options were identified. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One was that Stone Mills could rent the pool from Napanee, at which time it would be for the exclusive use of Stone Mills residents. The other possible option is that they are willing to accept people from anywhere essentially.â&#x20AC;? Hogan said that, if approved by council, any Stone Mills resident taking swimming lessons could then approach the township for a partial reimbursement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be a 100 per cent reimbursement and that was never agreed upon,â&#x20AC;? he added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Although council thought that was a very viable alternative, they still wanted to try to keep the Varty Lake swim program intact.â&#x20AC;? According to Hogan, the approximately 100 residents participated in the program each year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In my calculations, in trying to come up with some sort of a reasonable budget figure for the township, I was estimating it at 90 kids, so 30 people a week for three weeks,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There were quite a number of volunteers that helped out each year too.â&#x20AC;? If a volunteer co-ordinator is not found, running the complete program in Napanee would cost the township $4,200. Under this agreement, Stone Mills would have to pay for the rental of the pool

regardless of the number of participants. For the second option, no specific preference would be given to Stone Mills residents and any person wishing to participate in Napanee would be required to pay the $72 non-member fee. Stone Mills council is also looking at the possibility of offering the Napanee program to residents at a reduced rate of around $40, with the remainder subsidized by the township. Assuming a similar number of participants with the Napanee swim program as there were with the Varty Lake swim program, Hogan said this subsidization option would cost the township $2,880. In a report he presented to council earlier this month, Hogan said consideration should also be given to whether bussing would be made available to participants, should the Varty Lake program be cancelled. The existing program included busing from Enterprise, Newburgh and Yarker to Varty Lake. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still looking for a volunteer co-ordinator but the trouble is weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re getting down to the wire here, because a person should have been in place by now,â&#x20AC;? Hogan said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not something you can leave until June or July... there is a lot of work that needs to be done ahead of time and looked after.â&#x20AC;?

The Napanee Rotary Club paused to honour this year’s slate of Paul Harris Fellowship winners. From left are Eric Kaiser, Rotary District Governor Katie Burke, Bill Pierson and Chuck Airhart played host to many fundraising pig roasts, bringing in a total of $50,000 to the hospital. Last year he revived the event and raised $5,300 for Rotary’s efforts to bring an outdoor pool back to Napanee. The club is currently planning the next roast, which will be held this summer. Kaiser has also been very generous with donations of crops to feed the hungry. Pierson enriched the

lives of many people when he began his career as a teacher in a one-room school house in South Fredericksburgh in 1962. He has been very active in the community, helping to launch the Greater Napanee Gymnastics Club which he still presides over today. Along with serving on town council he has also done his part as a member of the Greater Napanee Fire Department. After Saturday's event

those three joined a list of over 700,000 people world wide who have been given the award since 1957. All three were given

gold pins and medallions but most importantly had their names added to an elite list of Rotarians and community builders.

Raiders dispatch Panthers in four Napanee to face Pirates or Jets in finals By Adam Prudhomme BEAVER SPORTS

Adam Prudhomme - Staff

Deseronto’s Andrew Bobas celebrates his third goal of the night, leading his team to a 4-3 win.

Bucks swept away Storm advance to quarter-finals By Adam Prudhomme BEAVER SPORTS The Deseronto Storm made quick work of the Bobcaygeon Bucks, dispatching them in two games to advance to the quarterfinals of the Greater Metro Hockey League's Russell Cup. The series was capped with a tense 4-3 victory in Deseronto on Friday night. The Storm looked ready to cruise to an easy victory when they pulled ahead 3-1 midway through the second on two goals from Andrew Bobas and one from John Sweet. The Bucks' Shawn Lymer had other ideas as he roared back to score twice in the final 10 minutes to enter the third tied 3-3. “The older guys stepped up and let the younger guys know we can't be taking penalties,” Bobas said of the mood in the dressing room between the second and third. “Who knows how many penalties we took, like six or seven in a row. We were shorthanded the whole time.” All told the Storm sent seven players to the penalty box in the second. In the third they were assessed just one penalty while the Bucks took three. That proved to be the difference as Bobas fired home the eventual game winner on a powerplay with four minutes left in the game. Storm goalie Pavlo Stepanenko was solid in net, especially in the dying minutes, stopping 22 shots to defeat his old team. Thursday night in Bobcaygeon he was even bet-

ter, making 45 saves to preserve a critical 4-2 victory to open the series. The Storm started strong in Game 1 when Sweet opened the scoring just 3:40 into the game. Alex Vasilchenko would tie it up later in the period only to see Sweet restore the lead just 48 seconds into the second. Once again Vasilchenko had an answer to knot it at 2-2. It stayed that way until late in the period when Bobas struck with just over a minute left. Todd Munden would add a goal with 49 seconds left in the game to secure the victory. “That was a great confidence builder,” Bobas said of opening the series with a win. “We definitely needed to get a great start on the road.” Heading into the miniseries, the Storm were ranked fifth while the Bucks were fourth. Knocking off a higher ranked team is new for Deseronto, who have made the finals the past two years. “All the players we've had from different teams, they've all said our team is the tightest group,” said Bobas. “I think we just don't want to go home and keep playing hockey.” Last night the Storm began the best-of-five quarter-finals on the road against the Bradford Rattlers. Game 2 of the series goes tomorrow night in Deseronto. If nothing is decided after Sunday's Game 3 in Bradford, the series returns to Deseronto for a Game 4 on Tuesday. All Storm home games will be played 7:30 p.m.

The Napanee Raiders finished off the Port Hope Panthers with an exclamation mark Sunday, winning 8-1 to sweep the Empire B League's semifinal series in four games. The Panthers certainly didn't go down gracefully in Game 4, racking up 164 minutes worth of penalties and giving up 31 power plays. Adam Ruffolo and Jake Doseger lead the way for Napanee with two goals each while Brad Edwards, Peter Roy, Parker Woolcox and Ryan Mills each had one. Laine Parent picked up the easy win as the Raiders spent the vast majority of the game on the attack. The Panthers appeared to be suffering immensely from the previous night, when they were shut out 40 in Napanee. “I think Saturday night, that was kind of the final nail in the coffin for them,” said Raiders head coach Mike Casselman. “I know they had a lot of ill-

They came up shorthanded and had a couple of guys suspended.” Eric Dwyer had two goals while Doseger and Adam Shulist had one. Parent made 28 saves for the shutout. Casselman referred to the game as one of the best Napanee had played all year. Thursday's Game 2 of the series was a lot closer

contested, as Napanee had to work hard to hold on for a 4-3 win on the road. Shulist, Dan Long, Colin Doelman and Ruffolo each had a goal. All but Shulist's came on the man advantage as Napanee went three for 12 overall. Parent made 36 stops for the win. Though he started and won all four games, Casselman said he didn't originally plan on using Parent

for the whole series. “The first game (on Feb. 22) he had to be beyond good and mostly great,” Casselman said of his rookie goaltender. “He was the reason that we won Game 1.” That earned him the start in Game 2 where he once again shined brightly. From there he only seemed to get better.

Lady Hawks capture KASSAA title Boys’ team finishes second By Adam Prudhomme BEAVER SPORTS The NDSS Golden Hawks hockey program pulled off a rare feat this week, sending both its boys' and girls' team to the KASSAA finals. Only one team would bring home the title though, with the girls winning 7-2 and boys losing 30. In a rematch of last year's final on Tuesday, the lady Hawks took on the reigning champion Sydenham Golden Eagles. Like last year Napanee jumped out to an early lead, except this time they held on for the win. “I think there was a little bit of a revenge factor,” said Hawks head coach Chad Miller on recapturing

The NDSS Golden Hawks celebrate on the ice after beating Sydenham 7-2 in the KASSAA league final on Tuesday. the title. “Last year we had a 2-0 lead on Sydenham and we allowed them back in. That was the big talk we had before. If we get a lead, we didn't want to let them back in.”

Alyshia Burriss got the Hawks going with an early first period goal, her first of four goals in the game. Napanee had built a 40 lead before the Eagles got their first. Taking the les-

son learned from last year to heart, the Hawks responded just seconds after to restore the four goal lead.

NDCC members prepare for final month of curling By Sandy Eastlake ON THE BUTTON Here we are into the last month of curling so teams in all leagues are curling their hearts out as this is the last chance to get their name on a trophy. Congratulations to the Thursday Men’s second draw winner Walter Genereux, Al Thompson, Phil Berry, Dave Hollis with runner up Ian Munro, Steve Cooper, Terry Young, Grant Miller. The Town & Country bonspiel held last Wednesday was another success for the club thanks to Jack McNamee, Hugh Sharpe

and Robert Hough. The winning team of Ian Munro, Brian Hobin, Rick Siegner, Andy Graham thanked Captain Sharon VanGent and helpers Heather Baker, Shirley MacDonald, Connie Pritchard, Debbie Currier for morning goodies and a delicious lunch. The second place team of Robert Paul, Robert Hough, Paul McDonald, Frank Dunham continued by thanking the bar staff of Beau Maracle, Sandi McNamee, Arnold VanHeighten. The third place team skipped by Vince Brennan from Sterling had great comments on our ice

thanks to Frank and Don with helpers Steve Eastlake and Robert Hough. Jack ended the spiel by thanking all his sponsors for their generous donations: My CanDo Tech, Canadian Tire Gas Bar, Waste Management, Clow Farm Equipment, O’Neills Farm Supplies, Country Depot, Moore Bros and Labatts. The Highland Lassie Bonspiel held last Saturday added another paragraph to our book of successes thanks to Director Heather Ramshaw and her committee of Eleanor and Christine Ramshaw, Liz Graham and drawmaster Andy Graham. All the 64

curlers started off the day with coffee cakes, fruit, yogurt, coffee and/or tea by Eleanor Ramshaw; then these ladies were piped on the ice by Hugh Goldie with Marj Pearce having the honor of throwing the first stone.

Jason Clement of the NDSS Hawks lines up his shot against the Crusaders’ goalie.

The closest the Eagles would get would be 5-2 before Burriss added another to put the game out of reach. Also scoring for Napanee was Sara Jane Pratt, Bronwyn O'Neill and Emma Whalen. Emily Kimmett got the win in net. With the win the girls earned a spot in EOSSAA (Eastern Ontario,) which will be held Monday in Pembroke. As for the boys' hockey team, they couldn't get their offense working, falling to Holy Cross on Monday, also at the Invista Centre. "Their goalie played excellent," Hawks head coach Jeff Birchard said of the Crusaders. "I thought their forwards played really well, they just stayed on us and didn't give us any kind of a break." Birchard credited his defense, which did a good job of stifling the Crusaders' top scorers. Holy

Cross did manage one goal in every period, but two of them came from quick shots off the face off. Though they didn't win the most important game, the Hawks still had an excellent KASSAA season. They went 5-3-2 in the regular season and knocked off the second seeded Regi to advance to the finals. "It was a good year, I can't say anything bad about it," said Birchard. "This was the first time we've been (in the finals) in a few years." With their semifinal victory they earned a spot in this afternoon's EOSSAA tournament in Pembroke. "We might get our second shot (against Holy Cross) that takes us on to OFSAA," said Birchard. "Anything can happen." Along with the two KASSAA entries, Pembroke's Fellowes High School and Cornwall's St. Joseph's will make up the four team tournament.

Sunday's Ford Hot Shots competition is cancelled as there was not enough curlers to make it practical.

RAIDERS… Return to league finals

While he may have relied heavily on one player in net for the entire series, the same can't be said offensively. The Raiders saw at least 17 different players record a point in the four game series. “We learned last year that we needed to do two things,” said Casselman. “We needed to shore up the blue line...and we wanted to bring in another line that could contribute.” The Raiders appeared to have done just that as defenceman Dwyer, acquired in the off-season, led the way with eight points (two goals, four assists) in four games. As for another line, he points to the trio of Luke

Emmons, Roy and Edwards as his most consistent. They compliment Long and Ruffolo nicely, giving the team added depth. The team managed to find a way to produce despite losing Emmons in Game 1 when he was given a four game kicking suspension. He should return to the line up for Game 2 of the next series. They'll need that depth for the league finals, which will be against either Picton or Amherstview. That schedule will be finalized once the other series is finished and can be found at http://empireb.stats.points treak.com/scoreboard.html This will mark Napanee’s fourth straight appearance in the Empire B League’s finals, dating

The Jets and Pirates have each won two games, with Game 5 taking place tonight in Amherstview at 7:30 p.m. So far in the series the road team has won every game. While the Raiders were awaiting their next round opponent, the league named Long as the MVP award winner and Paul Fortin was named best defenceman. In 36 games Long had 31 goals and 22 assists. His 53 points were tops in the league. Fortin, the team’s captain, was the highest scoring defenceman in the league with five goals and 22 assists.

BEAVER STAFF he Napanee Orkney Residentials Novice AEs needed one point to clinch a seat in the Ontario eastern finals, and they gained that with a 2-2 tie with Centre Hastings on the weekend. Zack Doyle and Kenny PaddleGrant each had a goal. However, they fell to Port Perry 8-3 the next day. Ethan Joe had two goals while Doyle had one. The other spot in the finals is up for grabs this weekend among Centre Hastings, Port Perry, and PEC. The Napanee Country Traditions Atom BBs travelled to Midland to face a talented host squad in the semifinals of provincial playdowns losing the opener 3-0. After the long bus ride, and boys playing in spite of illness, they came on strong through the first half of the game, with several good scoring chances. After goalie Finn Pierce made two stops on a goalmouth scramble, the opposition chipped in the rebound. Midland went on to score two more in the next five minutes, one on the power play, and the other on an end to end rush by their talented captain. Game 2 saw Napanee fall behind early. Down 3-0 in the third, and shorthanded, Logan White stole the puck from the defenceman in front of their net, and stretched the twine. With the score 4-1, Kyle Weese fed the puck behind the net to Emmet Pierce, who

The Atoms host Midland Friday night at 7 p.m. at the SPC. The Napanee Peewee BBs started their semifinal series at home, hosting a skilled team from Parry Sound on Saturday. The locals played solidly, in a hard fought game that had many scoring opportunities at both ends of the rink. After regulation time, the score was knotted at 2-2. Unfortunately Parry Sound netted the winner in the extra frame. Game 2 was played Sunday morning in Napanee, and again, Napanee played well, but fell 3-0, including an empty net goal.

in Parry Sound for Game 3 of the five game series. The Napanee Midget AE3 Stars had a very strong showing in the first game of their semifinal series with Huntsville on the Goodyear rink. Matt Burger netted the winner for Napanee in a 4-3 win. Sunday morning, the locals got into penalty trouble, and Huntsville won 5-1. Their five game series moves to Huntsville on Friday for Game 3. The Exit Realty Bantam BB Stars faced PEC in Picton for their second meeting of the second season. Napanee took an early lead in the first period with goals scored by Cullen Hinds and Dalton Manley. Assisting were Josh Murphy and Liam Bruinsma. PEC came back in the second period scoring three times and one final goal in the third period, taking the game 4-2. James Hanley was strong in net. The Dr. Craig Midget BB Crunch girls hockey team started the provincial playdowns with a two game split this past weekend. Napanee lost their first game to Clarence-Rockland 2-1. Bronwyn O'Neill scored the lone goal with helpers from Chelsea Mosgrove and goalie Haillee Carrigg. The Crunch rebounded to win their second game 2-0 at home against Russell on Saturday night. Heather MacDonald and O'Neill accounted for the goal scoring with Rebecca Dowling picking up two assists and Emma Whalen adding one. Carrigg secured the Napanee shut-out. The Crunch are currently battling four other eastern Ontario teams in a single round robin for one of two spots to the Ontario finals. Meanwhile in playoff action, the Crunch are in the second round of the Lower Lakes playoffs. They bested Scarborough 3-0 in Napanee on Tuesday night. Whalen, Jordyn Harpell and Kathryn Falcone each scored with assists from O'Neill and MacDonald. Leigha Doggett earned the shutout.

OBITUARIES Frances Marie McDonald (French) On Saturday, February 19, 2011 at Hospice Haven, Lake City, Florida, one week shy of her 70th birthday, beloved wife and partner of James Gilbert McDonald for 43 years. Survived by sons, Sean, James, Scott and daughter Annette. Predeceased by her parents John and Laura French and daughter Laura Lee. Loving sister of William, Donald, Joyce. Elanor, George and John. Loving sister-in-law of Elaine and John Crawford. Missed by grandchildren and nieces and nephews, too numerous to mention. Marie was raised in Forest Mills, north of Napanee, where her father owned and operated Frenchs Lumber. Born on February 26, 1941, she attended high school in Napanee. Upon graduation, she accepted a teaching job in Thunder Bay at the age of 17. Following her stint up north, she worked at the Sir James Whitney School for the Deaf in Belleville. A move to Kingston brought a new position, that of Administrative Assistant to the General Manager of Weston Bakeries in Kingston. It was at Weston Bakeries that she met Jim McDonald, who was working there as a mechanic. The two were married on September 2, 1967. Together they raised four children, Sean, Rene, James Gilbert, Colin Scott and Annette Marie. During the 1970â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, she and her husband operated Jimâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Garage. In the early years it focused on providing repair services to the transportation industry, but in 1977 they took the plunge and opened a Service Station in the small town of Verona, which they operated for four years. In January of 1979, an electrical fire burned down their house, which was a hobby farm situated on 13 acres of land close to Godfrey. In the mid 1980â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, she and her husband decided to pursue an opportunity to live and work in Florida. In 1987 they, along with their two youngest children, moved to Fort Lauderdale. Marie enjoyed living in Florida and in the larger sense, the United States. She and her husband became naturalized citizens in 1992 and she was always proud to be an American in her adopted land. She continued to work, having secured a job working in the office of an appraisal firm. She worked in this field for over twenty years, retiring only when her health would no longer permit her to work at the age of 67. She enjoyed the warm climate of the Sunshine state and was quite an avid gardener. Her new location offered her the opportunity to garden year around and she thrived in it. Thrive and excel are words that are understatements to describe her abilities. She was always a hard worker, but she was quite accomplished at many things that had nothing to do with the pursuit of money. She found comfort in writing poetry, gardening, oil painting and quilt making. Whatever she tried, she thrived at. Through it all, this roller coaster of life, she managed to raise four children. She was deeply loved and will be sorely missed. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that those who knew Marie take the time to remember her in their hearts and tell those you love how you truly feel.

MARCH 8TH IS INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY Canada’s Theme - Strong leaders, strong women, strong world International Women’s Day is celebrated all over the world in almost every country. The United Nations declared this day in 1977, however the day has been marked since 1911. At that time a devastating fire resulted in the death of many women in New York City in a shirt factory which exploited the cheap labour of poor women. Over these 100 years, events have celebrated the accomplishments of women, and perhaps more importantly, have pointed out the challenges that remain.

Research convincingly shows that programs directed to the education of girls are more effective than virtually any other community investment in the developing world. Basic quality education provides girls with access to health and nutrition information for themselves and their families - including helping to prevent the transmission of HIV/AIDS. It provides a safe place to grow as they learn. It gives them the knowledge to provide economic support to their family. It delays marriage and pregnancy, thereby lowering infant and maternal mortality. And an educated woman is more likely to send her children - both boys and girls - to school, thereby increasing the likelihood of future generations receiving an education.

Education of women is the key to economic productivity and politAn International Organization is working hard to improve the sit- ical stability. uation for women around the world. The Organization is called 60 Healthy, safe, empowered girls transform families, communities Million Girls. and countries. There are an estimated 110 million children around the world who do not attend primary school - more than 60 million of these are For more information on 60 Million Girls visit the website girls. Basic literacy and numeracy skills are the fundamental tools www.60milliongirls.org that will enable girls and women, as well as boys and men, to take hold of their lives and develop solutions adapted to the needs of their communities and country.

Edge

After suffering from 20 years of chronic pain, fibromyalgia and rheumatoid arthritis, I decided to take matters into my own hands. I began researching food and made simple changes to my diet. The pain started to diminish. I was amazed. I was excited to learn more and to help others. I went back to school, graduated with honours and decided to start my own practice. That’s when I went to Career Edge. I met with Susan and she informed me about the Self Employment Benefit Program. I learned how to set up a new business, all while getting paid to do it. Before I knew it, I was up and running. Career Edge gave me the information, encouragement and support I needed to get started. Best of all, their services are free.

Sweet taste of spring celebrated at sugar bush Tyendinaga Township’s Trillium Ridge Sugarworks plays host to ‘First Tapping’ ceremony

Adam Prudhomme - Staff

Cynthia Peters of Farm Cooking School in Prince Edward County places a cover over the first maple sap bucket of the season at Trillium Ridge Sugarworks in Tyendinaga Township on Friday. Terry Gervais, who owns and operates Trillium Ridge with wife Vicki, offers some guidance.

For maple syrup lovers, the sweetest season of the year is about to begin. Ontario’s maple season got started at the Trillium Ridge Sugarworks in Tyendinaga Township on Friday with the ‘First Tap’ ceremony. Representatives from the agricultural and maple syrup producing community gathered at the sugar bush to usher in not only the late-winter sap run, but the growing season for 2011. Another theme for the First Tap ceremony: supporting local produce. As such, Cynthia Peters, a Prince Edward Countybased chef and food writer — and proponent of local agriculture — was invited to put in their first tap of the season. “Supporting our farmers is really one of the reasons I started my cooking school at my heritage farmhouse in PEC,” she told the small crowd gathered at Trillium Ridge. “It’s been a really wonderful experience taking people directly to the farms to even harvest some of the food to bring back to the school to cook, teaching them how to substitute sugar for maple syrup as

well, and all the wonderful things this product can do.” She said that one of her goals is to teach her students how to cook ‘seasonally’ — that is, using local produce that is readily available depending on the season. But while the maple harvesting season is a short one, the syrup can be used throughout the year. “This is the sweetest crop you can possibly have

in your cupboard all year round, and it’s seasonal every day of the year.” For Vicki and Terry Gervais, the owners of Trillium Ridge, Friday’s ceremony was a continuation of success from 2010. The couple won second place for their syrup at the Royal Winter Fair in Toronto, and like the maple syrup business across the province, their business continues to grow.

In Ontario, SunEdison built and operates First Light 1, Canada’s first fully operational solar farm, which is located in Stone Mills, north of Napanee, as well as the Norfolk 1 and 2 solar farms in Norfolk County. Project Description:

The study area for the “SunE Sandhurst Solar Farm Project” covers lands in Greater Napanee, north of the hamlet of Sandhurst, and generally bounded by Highway 33 to the south, Bathurst Street to the east and private land to the north and west. Within this study area, SunEdison is planning a ground-mounted solar photovoltaic project with an electrical generation capacity of up to 10 MW which will interconnect into the Hydro One grid. The project location is also outlined in the adjacent map.

The Process:

This project has a Renewable Energy Standard Offer Program (RESOP) contract from the Ontario Power Authority to sell clean energy to the Ontario power grid for 20 years. The land on which the project is proposed was rezoned by Greater Napanee in 2008 to permit solar development. As such, the project is following the Town of Greater Napanee’s site plan approval process. Public Consultation:

A Public Information Centre (PIC) has been arranged to allow the public an opportunity to review and comment on the preliminary project details with members of the Project Teams. Members of the public, residents and local business representatives are encouraged to attend. The PIC will be held on:
