RAVINGS By Mike Hickey


Most of you can probably remember the story of George Washington and the cherry tree. There may be different versions but essentially little George either chopped down or mortally wounded a favourite tree of his father’s. When confronted by his father if he knew anything about the demise of his favourite tree, George apparently confessed that he indeed was responsible. Flash forward a few hundred years and Mikie says, “I must confess, I did it!!”. I don’t think I can get this whole story into a single ravings so it may be a two parter. Here goes!! As you know I have been working on pruning a small hunk of our woodlands over the winter. I have also just finished reading a book by Jamie Simpson called “Restoring the Acadian Forest” and boy what an eye opener. While much of the Acadian Forest still has most of the tree species that existed before European settlement, due to the heavy logging that has taken place the actual dominance of several species has severely declined. In general, red spruce, white pine, hemlock and beech, have been significantly replaced by trees such as white birch, poplar, balsam fir, and white and black spruce. I would highly recommend the book for anyone interested in our current forest conditions and what should be done to return too a healthier forest system. One of the key conditions needed before you can start restoring the Acadian forest is to be able to identify at least the key tree species that you want to manage. So for hemlock one site says “Leaf sides tapered, twigs flexible, leaf attached to small “peg” on the twig, leaf with small stem.”. What in heck are they saying???? Further on I find, “Needles have 2 white “racing stripes” on the underside.”. Okay, this I can understand!!! So off we go looking for white racing stripes. Very soon by turning over needles, we start seeing lots and lots of white racing stripes. Not very prominent mind you but visible if you look hard. So I say to the missus, “I could have sworn that all these hemlocks were fir. I can’t believe that we have tons of hemlock and no fir, this isn’t making sense!!”. So back to the drawing board. More research and guess what, fir also have little white racing stripes!! Check more stuff such as needle size and low and behold, all our hemlock immediately turned back into fir. Suddenly, restoring the Acadian forest is getting tougher than an allowance increase from the missus!!! To be continued ....800

Helping build better communities



Thabile is a young woman with a message she is sharing with the students in the high schools around Piggs Peak. “My name is Thabile and I am an average young Swazi woman. I am not ignorant or stupid; I am intelligent and smart just like you. I went to school and studied hard, just like you. But I was foolish and I am paying for that foolishness now and will continue paying for many years to come. …” “Like many of you, I wanted someone to love and to love me in return. When I met a boy who said he loved me, I believed him. I did not know or realize that he only wanted one thing. When he got what he wanted and left me pregnant, he disappeared. I now have a baby and a huge responsibility on my shoulders which I have to carry alone. …” “Although the price I have to pay for my foolishness is high, it might have been much higher. If the father of my child had been HIV positive I could have contracted AIDS. There is no cure for AIDS. Although there are medicines that can prolong your life, the prognosis is grim. The average life expectancy of anyone with AIDS is seven to ten years. Some may live as long as fifteen years.” “You are all still young; most of you are in your teens. You can expect to have a long and healthy life well into your fifties and sixties and more. You have the opportunity to marry and have a happy healthy family. With HIV/AIDS that opportunity is lost. If you get AIDS it is unlikely that you will live much beyond your thirtieth birthday. Many of you have lost friends and family to HIV/AIDS. Yet still participate in risky behaviour. I have to ask you, is it worth the price you may have to pay?” The most recent statistics on HIV prevalence in Swaziland were released just this month. The national prevalence of HIV is still the highest in the world, peaking at 54% for women ages 30-34 and at 48% for men ages 35-39. But there may be reason for cautious optimism. Trends from the Swaziland Antenatal HIV Surveillance Surveys also indicate declines in HIV prevalence among young women. Who knows, maybe in some small way this is due to the work of the Hampton-Piggs Peak Partnership. For more information visit our or call 832-0003. 110

(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. It was during the 1930’s-40s as he became famous that his given names “Clarence Robert” were reversed to “Robert Clarence” – thus with the new moniker “Robert Clarence Nolan” or “Bob Nolan” in the shortened form, he became an original member of the “The Pioneer Trio”. The two other original members of this trio were Leonard Slye (who later legally became Roy Rogers) and Tim Spencer (who later became involved in music publishing, and gained the American rights to publish the Gospel classic, “How Great Thou Art”). Before long “The Pioneer Trio” became “The Sons of the Pioneers” when it was noted by fans that the members of the trio were too young to be pioneers. “Bob Nolan” was noted in nearly 100 films as an actor, a singer and a songwriter. “The Sons of the Pioneers” did not sing in every film, but they often accompanied such western heroes as Roy Rogers and Gene Autry. Elizabeth Drake McDonald’s article on “Bob Nolan, Actor” says “Bob had the full song writing responsibility for the Starrett movies. [Charles Starrett was a star of Columbia Pictures in the early days of movies.] Every picture had three or four songs in it and a new picture was released on the average every three weeks. At the same time, he was writing more and more for radio programs. These [1935-36] were artistically fruitful and heady years.” Bob Nolan recalled in a 1976 interview that it took about nine days to produce a complete film. Bob was also a competent actor in the B-Western style movies. He even took lessons to become a “better-than-average rider and he mastered the requisite Film Cowboy Hero Quick-Drawand-Twirl with his revolver.” He received $33 a week for his film work, but the movies made his voice and face familiar across North America. “He definitely avoided starring in a series of his own. Being a star would mean the end of privacy and privacy was vital to him.” To be continued. 127

Helping build better communities A TITANIC CONNECTION

As the centenary of the sinking of the Titanic is marked this month, it might be time to note a local connection. On April 15th, 1912 the “unsinkable ship”, which struck an iceberg in the late hours of the previous day, went to the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean carrying many people to their death. H. Thad Stevens, the Hampton undertaker from 1923-1950, in the early days of his career in the funeral business played a part in the historic event. “Stevie”, as he was known to all, was called from the Pictou area in Nova Scotia to Halifax to help prepare the numerous bodies from this marine disaster. In Hampton “Stevie” helped start the Hampton Village fire department, served as chairman of the local school board for decades, and was caretaker of Princess Louise – the mascot of the 8th Princess Louise Hussars. In 1932 he was honoured in a song at a local community event: “Now, Stevie ran the local school. With pep that makes us wonder, For, though he helps to make the grade, He’s the first to put us under.” About 30 years ago I had the opportunity to interview “Stevie” when researching Reflections: The Story of Hampton, N.B. I recall him telling me about the above episodes, but what I remember most is when he said “turn off that tape recorder and I will tell you some good stories about Hampton.” I did, and he did. I have never told these stories to anyone, nor do I plan to reveal them. David G. Keirstead. 130

Helping build better communities


On March 12th, our government voted in favour of passing The Safe Streets and Communities Act. We campaigned on a promise to crack down on criminals committing dangerous crimes and we are delivering on that commitment. With the passing of The Safe Streets and Communities Act, our government is tackling crime head on by ensuring criminals are held accountable and that victims are provided the justice they deserve. One of the greatest responsibilities we have as a government is to protect Canadians and ensure that those who commit crimes are held to account. One of the major components of our legislation targets the source of the illicit drug trade – the drug traffickers. We are stiffening penalties for the production and trafficking of illegal drugs. The criminals we are targeting are those who are involved in selling drugs to kids on playgrounds and near schools. In addition, the Safe Streets and Communities Act ended house arrest for serious crimes like kidnapping and human trafficking as well as eliminated pardons for certain crimes against children. It also better protects the public from violent young offenders, supports victims of terrorism and prevents the trafficking, abuse and exploitation of vulnerable immigrants. Canadians deserve to feel safe in their homes and communities and that means keeping dangerous criminals off our streets. We will continue to fight crime and protect Canadians so that our communities are safe places for people to live, raise their families and do business. Yours sincerely, Hon. Rob Moore, P.C, M.P. 528

Easter Facts The first Easter baskets were made to look like bird's nests.

The traditional act of painting eggs is called Pysanka. The custom of giving eggs at Easter time has been traced back to Egyptians, Persians, Gauls, Greeks and Romans, to whom the egg was a symbol of life.


In medieval times a festival of egg-throwing was held in church. During this festival the priest would throw a hard-boiled egg to one of the choir boys. The egg was then tossed from one choir boy to the next and whoever held the egg when the clock struck 12 noon was the winner and retained the egg. Easter is celebrated on the first Sunday after the full moon which happens on or after the Spring Equinox. The date of Passover is variable as it is dependent on the phases of the moon, and thus Easter is also a movable feast. The "Easter bonnet" was fixed in popular culture by Irving Berlin, whose frame of reference was the Easter parade in New York City, a festive walkabout that made its way down Fifth Avenue from St. Patrick's Cathedral.

Funeral Misconceptions Funerals are too expensive – a funeral doesn’t have to be lavishly expensive to be meaningful. Funerals make us too sad – when someone we love dies we need to be sad. Funerals provide us a save, supportive place to embrace our pain. Funerals are barbaric – on the contrary, meaningful funeral ceremonies are civilized, social binding rituals. Some people think that viewing the body is barbaric. Cultural differences aside, viewing has many benefits for the survivor.

Funerals are inconvenient – taking a few hours to demonstrate your love and support is a privilege, not an inconvenience. Funerals require the body to be embalmed – not necessarily, if the funeral is held shortly after the death. Funerals are only for religious people – not true. Non-religious ceremonies can still help mourners begin to heal. Funerals should reflect what the person who has died wanted – yes and no…funerals are primarily for the benefit of the living. Funerals are only for grow-ups – anyone old enough to love is old enough to mourn. Children, too have the right and privilege to attend funerals.

Alternatives, previously known as Alternate Heating, opened its doors as a wood stove store in November, 1977. At that time customers were looking for an alternative to rising oil prices and they turned to wood, especially the more efficiently burning stoves. Thirty-five years later Alternatives has grown into three specialty areas: hearth products, bicycles and BBQ’s. Simon Pothier, who has been with the business for over 30 years, says, “I am often asked how Alternatives ended up with such a unique combination of products.” He explains that, “In the early days customers only bought a wood stove for heat. That means that while business was brisk from September through December there were eight months when customer traffic was slow. Many attempts were made to find a spring and summer product line including camping gear, canoes, solariums and windows. The business line that customers really showed an interest in was Bicycles.” For a number of years Alternatives has sold bicycles, and since 2005 has been known as theBikeGuyz @ Alternatives. More recently Alternatives has seen an increased demand for BBQ’s, so much so that it has now become a second specialty area for those spring and summer months. Common theme between Hearth Products, bicycles and BBQ’s When asked what he feels has contributed to the success of three separate product lines, Daryl Wilson, the owner said “Quality products, knowledgeable staff and making sure that in each area we offer all the alternatives.”

As for knowledgeable staff, Mr. Wilson wants customers to be informed on the features and benefits of the different products. “It is very important that we are able to assist the customer make the correct buying decision for their situation.” The process begins by understanding what problem the customer is trying to solve and it ends with the customer deciding on a satisfactory solution. Being able to provide good advice to a customer is made much easier when you carry all the alternatives. Andrew Batchelar, a bike enthusiast from New Zealand who now manages the BikeGuyz side of the business says basically the same thing. “When a customer comes to our store for a bike it is important to know what type of riding they are interested in. That will lead us to show them either mountain, road, hybrid, BMX, or women specific bikes." As for BBQ’s while John Jones may be partial to his Big Green Egg, he likes being able to explain the different reasons for buying a Propane, Charcoal, Pellet or Electric BBQ. “Most people like propane because of ease and speed, others like Charcoal because of the flavor, while others may decide on Electric because they cannot have a gas or charcoal BBQ on the deck of their apartment or granny flat” When asked what is exciting at Alternatives after 35 years, Ms. Blair responds by saying “the growth in our bicycle and BBQ business. We are certainly known as a hearth store, but in recent years we are really excited about what is happening with the BikeGuyz and our BBQ business.”

Try something new this season and visit Sussex Toastmasters, a club where you “learn-by-doing” and where men and women hone their leadership and speaking skills in a comfortable, friendly atmosphere. There is no instructor in a toastmasters club; instead, members conduct the meetings. A typical meeting is broken into three areas: 1. Prepared speeches, where members work in a communication program manual that has a series of ten speaking assignments designed to instill a basic foundation in public speaking; 2. Evaluations, which are the corner stone of Toastmasters and afford the speaker immediate feedback on what members liked and identifies areas for improvement; 3. Impromptu talks or “thinking on your feet” where a member responds to various topics. Toastmaster members have the opportunity to serve as officers in various leadership roles and learn parliamentary procedure. Best of all, in Toastmasters, you can go at your own pace. Meetings are held every Tuesday evening 7:00pm at the Sussex Middle School library. For more information call Faith McMillan at 433-5227. 500

Project Linus was named for the adorable blanket toting character from the “Peanuts” comic strip. Charles Schultz was aware of Project Linus and was delighted to have Linus inspire blanket makers to help comfort a child in need. Blankets are given to children when they are in need of a big warm HUG! My chapter has donated to the Hampton and Grand Bay RCMP, Rothesay Fire and Police departments, Hestia House, First Steps and other children who were in need. I would like to Thank Vera Turnbull, students, staff and parents of RCS Netherwood for their kind and generous donations to Project Linus. Vera has been a tireless worker on the Project for 10 years. Every year she comes up with more and more quilts, she is a dynamo. A large tip of the hat to her and her students/ staff that get together for this. Without people like this Project Linus would not exist. At this time I would also like to ask for yarn donations for a wonderful lady who has offered to knit blankets for Project Linus - wew worsted four-ply or baby yarn is acceptable, large balls make a quilt for a teen in need, smaller one for the youngsters. Thank you in advance. Anyone who has yarn to donate can contact me at Wanda Finniemore Regional Director of Project Linus. 808

Hampton Herald - April 3, 2012


Once a farmer found an abandoned eagle’s nest and in it was an egg still warm. He took the egg back to his farm and laid it in the nest of one of his hens. The egg hatched and the baby eagle grew up along with the other chickens. It pecked about the farmyard, scrabbling for grain. It spent its life within the yard and rarely looked up. When it was very old, one day it lifted up its head and saw above it a wonderful sight - an eagle soaring high above in the sky. Looking at it, the old creature sighed and said to itself, “If only I’d been born an eagle”. Source: an adaptation from an Anthony de Mello story. CC17

A long time friend called me today and reminded me that the Hampton Herald will soon be celebrating a milestone. I immediately left the phone and went online to reminisce the years we enjoyed being the publishers of that project. Little did we think when we started out as amateurs that it would become such a popular project. Thank you so much for seeing our dream develop into such a successful business. We are now living in Retirement Miramichi, and once in a while we meet someone who lives in Hampton/Rothesay areas, and they comment on how much they appreciate getting the papers. Helen & Bert Boyd. 134

As part of its mandate to identify and champion new economic development opportunities, Enterprise Fundy was quick to embrace a new tourism product that a local business person, Alan Gillis, brought to the attention of key stakeholders ranging from the Town of Hampton, the Chamber of Commerce and this agency. The product is what is called a Barn Quilt Tour. The basics of it are that local quilts or more specifically quilt “blocks” are recreated on large 8x8 signs that are erected along a rural road “trail”. They are put up on buildings, on posts in from of historically significant locations, and so on. At each stop there is a ‘story” about either the significance of that particular quilt pattern, the local site itself, or both. As part of the trail, these signs are also placed at the locations of rural businesses and artisans. When tourists follow the Quilt Barn Trail they will thus also have the opportunity to purchase locally produced farm products (jams, honey, maple syrup, etc.) as well as such things as wine, pottery, antiques and so on. The group working on this is very excited about the tourism value of this new product as it combines a number of tourism concepts that are an ideal fit with what today’s tourist is looking for. This is not a truly new concept as it has been very successful in numerous states south of the border over the past 10 years and only recently been adopted in Canada. Thus far only BC and Ontario have Barn Quilt Trails but based on the speed that they have adopted them, they clearly are a winner. This initiative has the strong support of all organizations involved and recently Brent Rourke, a well known local artisan has taken the lead in the development of this project. Soon there will be a meeting with officials at Tourism and Parks in which the hope is to gain their strong support as well. If all goes to plan, Hampton could be the home of the first Quilt Barn trail east of Ontario. In doing so it should add another strong drawing card that will bring tourists off of the divided highway and into both the Town and the surrounding rural areas, spending their time and money here as they go. By all accounts this should be a win-win that utilizes our long history of quilt making as the catalyst to rural economic growth. Stay tuned! 126

Helping build better communities DONATION TO BRHS TO SPORTS FIELD

On January 6th committee members Janice Bates and Christine Atherton, along with BRHS Teacher and Rovers Rugby Coach Grant Beckingham were on hand for a $50,000 presentation to the Belleisle Bears Community Sports Field Renovation project from Potash Corp in Sussex. Stewart Brown, who made the presentation, said he was thoroughly impressed with the contribution, hard work and dedication the community has made to the project so far. With a number of their valued employees residing in the Belleisle area, they were very pleased to “give back” to the community. It goes without saying the recipients were ecstatic with the donation. The “Community Gives Back” dinner was held at the Belleisle Community Centre in November with $4,000 proceeds to the Sports Field Project. The Rovers Sr. Men & Women’s Rugby Clubs were honored at this dinner for not only putting Belleisle Valley on the map with numerous accolades around the Province, but also for the volunteer services they have and continue to provide in the community. Emcee Josh Reicker kept the audience captivated with his antics and auctioneering skills. A very excited Darin Clarke won a new television in the Heads or Tails game and Scott Sherwood graciously donated his 50/50 winnings back. Special thanks to the prize contributors, Rovers Rugby Club, Chris Bingham and the Home & School “retirees” for their support. Additional work on the project will commence in the Spring.

By Douglas Brenton It’s that time of year again for the students of Hampton Middle School: those dreaded few weeks before the end of second term when students in Grades 6 to 8 suddenly become loaded down with tons of projects, and homework comes flying from left and right. Thankfully, March and April bring a little more than just work. Volleyball tryouts are approaching quickly and the wrestling team continues to practice strong. Even the teachers got into the sports scene participating in the District 6 curling championship on March 16th, ending their season in first place. On another note, our school competed in the District 6 Science Fair with Kristy Bethune placing second for Grade 6. Kristy will represent the district at the regional science fair in April. Martha Seaman won the HMS English oratorical competition with Colorado Russell winning second and Sydney Hallett winning third. The French oratorical competition starts soon. Another exciting activity that recently took place was Art Smarts. A couple months back, a Grade 6 French teacher, Mme. Page, and the school’s music teacher, Mr. Giberson, put their names in a draw for an Art Smarts grant. In January, the school found out they won it. Mme. Page’s and Mrs. Lamb’s classes began researching countries and their cultures and will create art describing these countries. After March break, Sue and Kathy Hooper, as well as George Fry, came in to aid the students with the projects. You may be thinking that March and April aren’t so bad after all, right? Just try telling that to the students as they work on those projects and do their extra homework! Douglas Brenton is a Grade 8 student at HMS. 114

MUSINGS By Debbie Hickey


I recently read an article on guidelines for physical activity levels for preschoolers that recommends 180 minutes per day of physical activity and that by age 5 they should be attaining 60 minutes of “energetic play”. Firstly, I was horrified to think that guidelines were necessary for such a thing. When my own children were preschoolers I can’t imagine lack of physical activity being an issue. They were busy, busy, busy; it was getting them to sit still for any length of time that was the challenge! And while I don’t specifically recall my own preschool days, I certainly know that as older kids my brother and I were outdoors most of the time, which would likely mean we were physically active well beyond the guidelines. Secondly, as I read on I was even more horrified to learn that young kids today are not busy at all. Rather, measurements indicate they are sedentary, basically just sitting or reclining, up to 84 per cent of their waking hours. Since most of us tend to become less physically active as we age, what does the future hold for these kids! The Town of Hampton has recently started an eight week program for a healthier Hampton - The 8 Weeks of Wellness Event. There are family walks, fun events, wellness seminars, Sunday afternoon activities in the square. There may be similar initiatives happening in other communities (I hope so), but Hampton is where I am so that is the one with which I am familiar. Those early years are when so many of our lifelong habits and lifestyle choices are established. Family and community activities such as this event are a great way to greet the Spring and make some healthy choices not just for ourselves but also for our children and grandchildren. Hope to see you out and about! 801
