RAVINGS By Mike Hickey

We Train For Life

UPCOMING CLASSES IN QUISPAMSIS! April 20, 21 & 22 8:00am - 5:00pm KV High School

GW DRIVER EDUCATION IS BACK IN HAMPTON! Eight evenings starting on May 14 Mon. & Wed. Evenings 6:00pm - 9:00pm Hampton High School

Introductory Price for Hampton is $500



The last Ravings was about the hemlock and fir screw up of successful tree identification. To set the record straight, I am NOT a total tree dummy. I can usually identify cedar, birch, white pine, maple, and a few others without any difficulty. I can even identify fir once again, after the hemlock white stripe confusion. So armed with more information, we again head back to the woods, better prepared to identify the desired hemlock tree. Walking along the woods road it is fir, spruce, spruce, fir, fir, and then suddenly HEMLOCK. A careful examination by both the missus and I and we agree it is indeed a HEMLOCK. YAHOO!! The only problem is, this particular hemlock had been CUT DOWN by me during the pruning process, in order to free up space for a white pine and a white birch!! Oh Dear!! Okay, this is only an 8 foot tree, the momma tree has to be around somewhere. Nope, can’t find it?? The problem of identifying little trees with needles hanging where you can easily examine them becomes much more difficult as you crane your head way back and stare at branches that are often 20 and more feet above your head. While hemlock can grow just about anywhere, they apparently prefer the edge of swamps, other wetlands and northern slopes. So it is off to tour the edge of our cedar swamp. Three hours or so later ... no hemlock!!! Several walks later … still no hemlock!! A two hour walk back and forth across a northern slope … no hemlock!! Is this a matter of tree ignorance and the inability to identify the rascals or has Mikie indeed killed the last hemlock in the 170 acre wood?? What is readily apparent so far from these adventures (misadventures) is that Mikie should have gotten a degree in forestry. Also apparent, is that Mikie and chainsaws are very dangerous. And ... good intentions guided by ignorance are continuing to further degrade our forests. Now, one family source claims that my father-in-law, who worked and roamed these woods for well over 60 years, once claimed that there was no hemlock on the property. Indeed, I may have inadvertently insured that the claim of no hemlock is still true to this day. Like most things in life, if you screw up, you are obliged to fix it. So over the next few years we will be planting some hemlock cones, trying to find some small trees to transplant and otherwise do what is needed to re-establish a hemlock population. 800

Hempstead, hatfield Point Hollywood connections Part IV

Continued from April 3rd issue, page 7 (7) Clarence Robert Nobles (his name given at birth) was the first son of Harry Bayard Nobles (later Nolan) and Flora Elizabeth Hussey. He was born in Winnipeg April 13, 1908. Much of his early life has been discussed previously. When he was taken from his grandparents’ home in Hatfield Point in 1919, after having lived with them for three years, his surname was changed to Nolan by his aunt as they crossed the Canadian border to the United States. As mentioned previously, young bob “was convinced that his mother had abandoned him and the hurt remained with him the rest of his life. He did find a measure of peace in the deep woods behind the house [his grandparents’ home in Hatfield Point], a place he called his wildwood. Earle, a lively three years younger and more adaptable, became his grandmother’s favourite, but Bob held himself quietly and politely aloof from everyone.” “Clarence Nobles” is found on the Hatfield Point school register from 1916-1919. “Earl Nobles” is also listed. Among their classmates were several of their cousins and their aunt, Mabel Spragg. “Bob and Earle attended school sporadically for Bob was needed to help with the chores on the farm and, after all, school was low on his grandfather’s priority list.” Bob’s lack of schooling often showed up in the miss-spellings in the lyrics he wrote for his songs. The Nobles (later Nolan) boys made a few friends with neighbouring children, especially the Boyd family. Bob, many years later, “spoke of the beauty of the forest country in New Brunswick but he also admitted that, during those years, ‘We probably had one month out of the year that we went to school and it was five and one-half miles and I trotted the whole distance, half the time with a Canadian lynx stalking me all the way’.” Bob confided with a friend many years after his time at Hatfield Point “Oh, what a beautiful country. I don’t there’s a more beautiful country in the whole of God’s creation than that”. 127

WHY I RELAY: My Adventure with Cancer

My name is Kathleen Hester Gandy. I am a family lawyer in private practice and a Cancer Survivor. I have lived in Hampton for 19 years. In August of 2003, I was diagnosed with Stage IV colon cancer, metastasized to the liver, life expectancy: months to two years. I have been cancer-free since 2004 (touch wood). If I could give you an infallible recipe for survival, we know others who would still be here. I do believe in one essential ingredient: hope. One sunny day in September 2003, 36 hours after the grim prognosis, I was driving to the hospital. I had my windows down, and my tunes cranked up. I had two daughters, aged 19 and 9. I decided that moment I was going to get into the 3% who survive past two years. If I expected to live and was wrong, at least I would have had two quality years of living, not of planning to die. I had remarkable success with chemo. I focused on spiritual healing. I had therapeutic touch. My daughters and I leaned on each other. I found a doctor who does RFA (radiofrequency ablation) in Halifax. While others were recommending continued chemo, he drew me a simple pencil sketch of the spots on my liver, and explained that by burning out two on one side and removing the other lobe, my tumours would be gone. A “no brainer”choice to me. I never needed the RFA – the two spots were gone. Postsurgical biopsy showed the rest were “necrotic” - dead. Perhaps if I’d chosen the other option, so would I be. In September 2005 I celebrated the birthday I was not expected to see. That month, instead of getting my harp (or pitchfork?), I got my call to the Bar (some would say I got my pitchfork after all!)

HMS News

by Shannon Heans You hook your arm under your opponent’s arm, turn, then throw him or her over your shoulder. What might that spontaneous wrestling move be called? That’s right wrestling fans, the allmighty “Shoulder Throw.” Recently, HMS started a new wrestling program, consisting of over 20 youths at the Middle School level. Olympic Style Wrestling has been an official sport in New Brunswick for many decades and is only now becoming a common sport at HMS. Can you believe there are currently 200 to 300 middle school wrestlers in the province of New Brunswick? Still being a very unique, and relatively unheard of sport, wrestling doesn’t cost families too much to take part in. Caregivers only have to pay the participant’s fee in order to take part in tournaments. Usually, there are roughly 150 to 250 matches in a tournament in which approximately 10 other schools participate. The kids visit four to five locations around the province for these competitions. In the coaches’ points of view, despite producing several Provincial Champions, the successes “off the mat,” have proven to be the most rewarding. In fact, coaches Shawn Coughlan, Mrs. Coughlan and Chika Ikejiani focus on developing strong characters first and strong athletes second. Not to mention, there’s always “Wrestler of the Week.” This is when a student wrestler is given that title for displaying tremendous effort and dedication during their weekly practices. The wonderful volunteer coaches give this honourable title to the committed, determined, young wrestlers. After interviewing one of HMS’s wrestlers, it became apparent that wrestling is humorous, energetic and downright fun. Most of the wrestlers are drawn to this unusual sport because they are simply “good at it.” However, after a few practices, they want more people to realize how amusing wrestling really is. Also, the student wrestlers enjoy wrestling even more because their coaches never raise their voices at them. Above all, they’re not just a team, they’re a family; one for all, and all for one! To wrap up, the Wrestling Team is saving for a proper wrestling mat with an expensive price tag of $7,000. In the past year, the team has raised over $1,500, but they still have a long way to go. But hey, Wrestling Team Captain Nicholas Whittacher says, “Tough times don’t last, tough people do.” Shannon Heans is a Grade 8 student at HMS. 114

The Joshua Group is having a “Toonie Day” on Friday April 20th kicking off their “Lead Us” campaign to raise funds for the purchase of the former Peacock Garden Center from the Saint John Animal Shelter. The Joshua Group has a conditional offer on this property and has until June 15th to raise the money. Every dollar matters and the community’s support is essential in order to realize their dream of having a headquarters for their children’s programs. If each person in the Greater Saint John area is able to contribute one Toonie, the Joshua Group will achieve this goal, and together we will bring hope to many underprivileged children in our community. A home for the Joshua Group will change the lives of these children, and more importantly, will have a long lasting impact on their future and our community. Your support not only goes to help raise money for the Joshua Group headquarters, but also furthers their goal of breaking the cycle of poverty in Saint John by reaching out to “at risk” children in priority neighborhoods. 100% of the money donated will be used to purchase the property on Sandy Point Road. The Joshua Group is challenging individuals to be creative and help collect Toonies from their co-workers, friends and families. They are asking schools and other organizations to assist by collecting Toonies on their behalf. If you would like place a donation bottle at your place of business, please contact Melissa Bewick 654-0064 or Robert Hayes 645-9664. For more information on The Joshua Group or to make an online donation, you can visit our website Registered volunteers with donation bottles will be located at various locations throughout Saint John on April 20th. 125

Scott Gillies Award presented

The Scott Gillis Award celebrates the heroic in the everyday lives of people living with MS. Scott was a good friend of the MS Society, a good friend to his community, and just a good friend. Scott passed away in May of 2010 at the age of 45. His obituary was inspiring; the breadth of work he quietly accomplished for others while facing the day-to-day challenges of Multiple Sclerosis was heroic. This award honours the memory of Scott Gillis as it recognizes the efforts of an individual with MS who is making a difference in the community in which they live. The recipient is a person who serves others, and shows a dependability and commitment to advancing the mission of the MS Society of Canada. This year’s recipient is Maryann Moore who has proven herself many times as a force to be reckoned with. She works to help not only people living with MS in her own community, but those in Atlantic Canada and across the country. Her involvement with the MS Society has spanned the breadth of our work: fundraising, awareness raising, advocacy, and education – at least at an individual level. And while she has been active in her Chapter and also on national working groups in various capacities, her true passion is advocacy. As a past Chapter Chair, Maryann led awareness activities and participated in the development of the original Atlantic Chapter manual in 2004. She participates in online forums, radio phonein shows and connects with individuals to raise awareness of issues impacting people living with MS while bringing her own perspective on the disease. Maryann has been an active “pedal partner” in the New Brunswick Bike Tour, helping to raise more than $13,000 in five years. This year’s recipient of the Scott Gillis Award is a remarkable woman who is a tireless advocate for people living with MS, a “never-say-no” kind of person who accepts each request to help and each adversity to be overcome with determination. 524

Lower Norton Community Club AGM

We're glad You asked! Brock Reid What is involved with Prearranging a funeral? Every once in a while we hear someone say that all of their funeral arrangements have been taken care of, when actually all they have done is purchased their cemetery property or bought a life insurance policy. Completing prearrangement involves three distinct areas: Information, Selection and Funding. INFORMATION: Information is needed to complete the required documents at the time of death including the death certificate and Canada Pension application. Information required includes your mother's maiden name, SIN and marriage date. Many times I ask for information and the family has to make phone calls or search through information at the deceased home. We have a form designed to record the necessary information that will answer the funeral directors questions at the time of death. SELECTION: The selection of goods and services that make up the funeral. This includes the elements of the type of ceremony that you want including music and religious expression. The casket, urn if cremated and outer burial container are also a part of the selection process. FUNDING: One option is that you can pay for the funeral with a single payment in the amount of the funeral. Another option is to make periodic payments. Also we can arrange for your life insurance to compensate for the expense. Many people choose one of these options because it works well for their budget.

The Annual General Meeting of the Lower Norton Shore Community Club will be held at the Lower Norton Shore Hall on Wednesday, April 25th at 7:30pm. All interested are welcome and encouraged to attend. 135

Hampton town-wide clean-up

Again this year the Hampton Communities in Bloom (CIB) committee will be sponsoring our annual Town Clean-Up. We ask that everyone set Tuesday, May 15th as “the day” to have our yards and gardens cleaned of the annual winter accumulation of litter - and why not add the area around our properties to our chore list? As in past years we are very fortunate that several community groups and individuals have agreed to help beautify our town by taking continuing responsibility for cleaning specific areas of Hampton. Community groups that clean up litter and help Hampton shine include: the Hampton Brownies & Sparks, the Hampton Cubs & Scouts, all Hampton Schools including P.A.L.S., the Hampton Lions Club, the Rotary Club, the Pickwauket Lions Club, Zelda’s River Adventures, Hampton Karate Club, Diane Cosman, Ducks Unlimited, Hampton River Runners, as well as all of our Hampton Churches. We ask that you show your appreciation by encouraging, thanking, and perhaps even helping them in their labours. When you see that ‘adopted’ parts of our town have been cleaned, you will know who to thank. We are encouraged that each year there is less litter to “clean up”. Remember, ‘every litter bit helps!’. 137

It has become tradition for married couples to jet off on a post-wedding vacation. This honeymoon is a way for the bride and groom to enjoy quiet time together and start off their married life together on an intimate level. Although the word "honeymoon" has happy connotations today, the original meanings of the word may not be so blissful. There are varying accounts of the evolution of the word "honeymoon," but many believe it to be a Norse tradition deriving from the word "hjunottsmanathr." Northern European history describes women being abducted from their families and forced into marriage with a man from a neighboring village. This husband would take his new bride into hiding and stay there for a while until it was certain the bride's family had given up the hunt and retreated. It was also tradition for Scandinavian couples to drink a sweet, honey-infused wine known as mead for a month after getting married. This may be where the "honey," for the sweet drink, and the"moon," for the one-month period of time, originated. Others say "honeymoon" refers to a sarcastic quip that a marriage starts out sweet as honey, but then wanes much as the moon will each cycle.

Seating your

Wedding Guests

• Wedding Feature

One aspect of wedding planning that tends to send people into panic is wedding reception seating arrangements. The thought of having 200 friends and family members together under one roof -- and then attempting to seat them next to an acceptable group of people -- can cause some couples to hyperventilate.

Hampton Herald - April 17, 2012

Here are some guidelines for setting up reception seating arrangements. • Place yourselves, as well as the bridal party, at a separate table that is in a prime location in the room. Be

• Some couples choose to seat both sets of parents at one table together; grandparents may also be seated at this table, depending on the number of people each table can accommodate. • If children under the age of 7 are invited, they should be seated with their parents. Children between ages 7 and 14 can be seated at a separate kids' table. • Instead of separating the bride and the groom's family to separate sides, intermingle the tables to promote conversation. • Consider arranging guests by common interests at each table, seating business associates or parents' friends together. • Take into consideration people who have relationship rifts and try to seat them separately. But don't stress about this too much because it won't be possible to accommodate everyone. • Be mindful of guests with disabilities or mobility issues. Seat them close to the door, bathrooms or food station. • It's not unheard of to let guests seat themselves. This takes the pressure of finding a seat for everyone off of you as a couple and enables you to think about the other tasks at hand. This can take place at a buffet wedding or a smaller affair.

HHS Grad Class news

Another Easter has passed at HHS, and by the look of the students coming out of gym class (who look more like zombies than students), it is time to work off all the weight gained from the treats that this ‘sweet’ holiday brings. The Grad Class Fashion Show was a huge success! The dresses were fancy and fine, the tuxedos were prim and proper, and of course, the whacky outfits were – well, whacky! It was great to see the participation of many Grads, and the parents, friends, and families in the audience. I’m sure everyone was well entertained (and hopefully not scarred for life by the truckers in short-shorts). The next Grad Class Coffee House is set for Monday, April 23rd so be sure to mark this day on your calendars and prepare your ears to be delighted by the voices and strings of some of HHS’s finest. With the copious number of stressful assignments due and exams on the horizon, a little bit of musical relief from stress is much needed and can go a long way! Word on the street is that Grads have been itching for another awesome Grad Class event! Well, naturally, your talented, incredible, unparalleled Grad Class Executive has taken the liberty of arranging a games night at the school on Thursday, April 19th. So grab a board game, bring it to the cafeteria, and make some memories! There is a parent/guardian meeting on Thursday, April 26th at 7:00pm at HHS. The purpose of this meeting is to organize the end-of-year events for the Grads. We hope to see many parents as many hands make light work. To use the metaphor that June and graduation are simply on the horizon would be dull (though truthful), since I have used it frequently and it now lacks originality. However, I will leave you with the following metaphor to ponder over the next two weeks until my next column is published: “We have just rounded the final corner, and the finish line now hangs faintly in the distance; yet, is not so far out of reach. Soon we will cross that line, and it will all be over. Put everything on the table, and enjoy your dwindling time at HHS as indicated by the countdown clock on the bulletin board!” Article Submitted by Johnny Cullen. 103

Hampton-Piggs Peak news

A certain portion of the funds donated to the Hampton-Piggs Peak Partnership are used “tactically” by John Lovett and Karen Mandy to help young people like Nolwazi Dlamini. Nolwazi is the 15-year old daughter of Jabu, who became pregnant when she was fourteen and contracted HIV from her husband who has since died from AIDS. John tells us “Now that her husband, as well as the rest of her own family, have died, Jabu has no place to call home other than the homestead of her late husband’s two other wives. She is not welcome and both she and her daughter Nolwazi are begrudged the food they eat and are treated like slaves.” “Nolwazi completed primary school with good grades but there was no money for her to continue on to high school. Her prospects were not good, as without continuing her education she would most likely follow the same path as her mother and probably become pregnant or be forced into a marriage.” “In January I enrolled her in form 1 at Mbeka High School which is within five kilometers of her home and paid the school fees and bought her uniform. Throughout this year she has continued to do well and often brings me her school books to show me the results she has obtained in tests.” “In the very possible event of her mother’s death, which given her health could be quite soon, Nolwazi will become a double orphan. Her position on the homestead will be little higher than the level of the animals and without outside support, she will have difficulty in continuing her schooling. Sam, the head teacher at Peak Central High School, has promised to accept her into his school next year for Form 2 and we will try to find a more suitable environment in which she can stay.” “Nolwazi’s situation is all too common. Polygamous marriages cause many of the problems in Swaziland, from poverty, the spread of AIDS, unwanted and unloved children as well as conflicts between the husband’s multiple wives and their respective children. I find children who have a father with several wives but to all intents and purposes he has abandoned one wife and her children in favour of another wife and provides no support.” “Hopefully we can provide the support to ensure that Nolwazi can complete her education and avoid the trap into which she could so easily fall. She is only one of many and it is very sad that we cannot help them all. Yet by making a difference to one, the power of one may become the power of many.” To make a donation to help us support more young people like Nolwazi, visit our website or call me, Mark Bettle, at 832-0003. 110

MUSINGS By Debbie Hickey


I started my day yesterday with at least the semblance of a plan of what I wanted to accomplish, one of which was to write my Musings. I had a couple of time specific appointments in the morning and the rest needed to fit in around those. But . . . the day came to an end and other than those two appointments not one thing on my To-Do list could be crossed off! Where did the day go? Well, let’s see. Things got off on the wrong foot right from the beginning, as I awoke at 4:45 am and was unable to get back to sleep. Now you might think that gives me a great headstart on my day, but not so. Instead of hopping out of bed and starting my day with a half hour to 45 minute walk, I was dragging around and settled in with my book until my usual walking time. BIG mistake. Park me with a book and time mysteriously just disappears. And it did. So instead of starting my day’s list early, I ended up actually running late on my morning routine. And tired. The first appointment was for 9:00am. That went fine. I then came home for a half hour before leaving for a 10:30 meeting at the office. So far so good. Still a little behind on my daily walking target, but doing okay. Got to the office in plenty of time . . . and received a phone call that the person I am to meet with is running a little behind and will not arrive until 11:00. No big sweat, there is plenty I can be doing at the office. But instead of being back home by noon as expected it was 12:45. Time for lunch and an hour long walk in the woods. So far the day was going along at least close to the plan. But then it took a turn in an unexpected direction and the rest of what was on the agenda went out the window. A phone call from our daughter had Mike and I heading to town to assist in her renovations. She has a great old house in uptown Saint John, but it needed a lot of work when she bought it a few years ago. They have found a lovely old home in Hampton they want, so the final renovations on the current house have suddenly gone on a priority list to get the house ready to list and sell. Instead of a day spent outside on a lovely spring day I was sanding walls and scrubbing down cupboards. And not writing Musings. By the time we got home in the evening my brain could no longer function sufficiently to string two words together, let alone 3 or 4 hundred. So here it is the next morning, completing a task from yesterday’s list that didn’t get done . . . and I am late for my morning walk. Out of step for the day already! Gotta go and catch up! “It gets late early out there” ~ Yogi Berra. 801
