“VOICES” There have been many voices raised against the recent forestry agreement by the government of NB to surrender even more of OUR Crown Land to the big forest companies. The argument by both government and industry is that we need to devastate our forests in order to create jobs in order to keep young people working here at home. However, like many overbearing parents, they have failed to ask these young adults whether they want to have our forests sacrificed on their behalf!! Last week I came upon an article published in the UNB student publication “Brunswickan” entitled “Merry Christmas, Mr Irving” written by Richard Kemick. Here are some excerpts. “The Irving family is the thirteenth-largest landowner in the world, beating Ted Turner and Sheik Hamad Bin Khalifa of Qatar. Furthermore, the twelve landowners that place ahead of the Irvings are all either monarchs or the Pope––who is obviously the monarch of our souls. While I, along with the majority of New Brunswickers, do not think too highly of Premiere Alward’s powers of deduction, the fact that the Irvings own our entire province and the fact that our province is largely populated by underemployed or unemployed citizens seems too coincidental to ignore.” “This province couldn’t have more cartoonishly evil environmental policies if they tried.” “Having a vibrant and unique ecosystem allows for the establishment of the financially lucrative industry of tourism, an industry that regenerates a lot faster than hardwood. However, because of this province’s dismal

environmental record, New Brunswick’s largest tourism draw is coming to watch the annual migration of the majestic twentysomethings fleeing the province.” Read the whole article at: merry-christmas-mr-irving. It was great to discover how at least one young voice thought of this whole ugly affair, many thanks!!! My personal preference is to simplify the whole matter and even take the science out of the debate, because there are only two clear and simple facts that are not even debatable. 1. Crown land legally belongs to the people of New Brunswick and is managed on their behalf by the government. Documents from the government state: “Crown lands are managed in the best interest of the people of New Brunswick.” Seems pretty clear. 2. “Public Views on Forest Management in New Brunswick: Report from a Provincial Survey” carried out in 2007 by DNR by three local university professors (website:2.gnb. ca/content/dam/gnb/Departments/nr-rn/ pdf/en/ForestsCrownLands/ForestSurvey. pdf) While there is a lot of info there are two key points: a) The residents of New Brunswick want their forests to be managed for many values besides as a source of fibre. b) Residents rate 8 other groups and organizations that should have greater influence than the forest companies in managing our forests. Conclusion: The Government is abusing the trust and wishes of it’s residents and legal action should be taken to regain control of our forests. 0001

OBITUARIES HAYES, John Albert Cook It is with deep sadness, the family of John Albert Cook Hayes of Bloomfield NB, husband of Janice (Hicks) Hayes announces his passing which occurred on March 15, 2014, at Ridgewood Veteran’s Wing, Saint John, NB. He was born on September 16, 1919 in Bloomfield NB, the son of the late Arthur and Mabel (Perkins) Hayes. John was known as a modest farmer to some, “honest John” to others, and a warm, generous and loving friend, husband and father to those who had the privilege to walk a while beside him on the road of life. He served his country for five years

during World War II as an engineer in the Royal Canadian Engineers, performing his duties in Canada, England, France, Belgium, Holland and Germany. He was a long-time member of Hampton Royal Canadian Legion Branch #28. He returned to the family farm in Bloomfield after the war, where he supported and cared for his parents until their passing. Although John was well into his forties when he became a family man, it was a role he embraced wholeheartedly. The birth of “the twins” a decade later was one of the highlights of his life. John retired from dairy farming at the age of 75, after which he had the opportunity to travel to Alaska, western Canada, Australia, Newfoundland, and Europe, where he revisited many of the countries in which he had served as a soldier. John enjoyed good health and lived at home until his 94th year. Although his memory began to fade in recent years, John retained his humility, sense of

humor, and loving nature until the end. John’s family would like to extend a heartfelt thank-you to Violet Ford, his personal caregiver for the past five years, and to the staff at Ridgewood Veteran’s Wing and the Dr. V. A. Snow Centre, all of whom provided such excellent care and support over the past year. John will be fondly remembered and sadly missed by his wife of 43 years, Janice; two sons Brian Hayes of Calgary AB and John Cook Hayes of Moncton NB; two daughters Terri Hayes and her husband Franco Frosini of Calgary AB and Jennifer Hayes-Starratt and her husband Mark Starratt of Calgary AB. He was a proud and affectionate grandfather to Shane, Shannon, Brendon & Carmen Gill, Meryl McKenna, Jeremy and Meghan McKenna and Alex Starratt; great-granddaughter Kaitlyn Boudreau; daughter-in-law Lorette McKenna; special family members Bob Pade and Margaret Morris; several nieces, nephews

LISTEN IN by Jeff Liberty KANSAS - CARRY ON STRONG In high school I had this friend who was planning to attend a recording arts college to learn the craft of sound engineering and music production. I was envious of his academic direction and wished I could follow in his footsteps, but at the time it was too expensive. He was older so he felt it necessary to school me about his two favorite bands, Styx and KANSAS. I listened and soaked it all in as we drove up and down the main drag in town in my 1978 Malibu Classic.That was my introduction to the band KANSAS. Not sure where my old friend ended up or whatever happened after I sold my Malibu Classic, but it’s good to hear KANSAS is still on the road. I was certainly chuffed when I had the opportunity to speak to KANSAS guitarist Richard “Rich” Williams who has been with the band since its inception in 1974. I asked Richard what was it like in the real heady times of fame in the 1970’s and 1980’s? “At the time it seemed pretty normal. In retrospect, I didn’t

have anything to measure the experience to. Now 40 years later (The band has been together 41 years now) I have that experience and I can appreciate those moments more. It’s weird I just turned 64 and I’m a lot smarter now than I was in my 30’s”. Williams says laughing. “I was just floating through life not paying too much attention to it, other than I’m just playing in a band”. On the changing standard music business model over the years and the bands hands-on approach Williams says. “We manage ourselves now so we choose when and what we want to do. So with the control of that it makes it much more relaxing, than being pointed in a direction and kicked along the way. From a point of gratitude. Just to be grateful to be able to do this.” William sincerely states. Curiously I ask what is his secret to staying in a band for so many years. “If we want to keep this going we have to keep this fun. We all have families and a home life. A perfect KANSAS weekend is leave on a Friday morning. I come home on

a Sunday afternoon. We fly everywhere. No buses! We have a good balance.” “Growing up, loyalty was a normal concept for me. You make a decision and you follow through. Understanding there will be good times, bad times and indifferent times. That is what was instilled in me growing up. To be accountable for your choices. KANSAS is who I am. I’m just following my nature”. KANSAS performs Friday, April 11 in Moncton at Casino New Brunswick. Check out the band at: 0041

Up, Up & Away by ellen tucker Our strong Irish heritage makes anyone with Irish blood wish to visit Ireland, with good reason! It’s beautiful accommodations suit every taste and budget, the cuisine is creative, and a warm welcome awaits you. Until recently, the journey was awkward, with no non-stop flights from Canada. You drove to Boston or connected through London. It’s not non-stop from NB, but a Westjet flight from St. John’s, NL is popular and connections are possible from Halifax. Once in Ireland, you’ll be surprised by the choices in accommodation and transportation. Here are a few options: Coach tours: These range from budget to 5-star; from a few days to a few weeks; to every nook and cranny of the Emerald Isle. Tour operators provide a choice of large coaches, or intimate ones. Self-drive: You’ll adjust easily to driving on the left. Except in major cities, there’s little traffic, and you can stop when you please. Many packages include vouchers for hotels or B&Bs, to book as you go. If you prefer, you can hire an experienced 10 Year Warranty, Financing & Custom Service Contracts Available

driver/guide - a great way to learn Irish history, customs and traditions. By rail: Yes, there are trains in Ireland! Irish Rail (Iarnród Éireann) fans out from Dublin to all major centers. In the countryside you can take a GoCar, a partnership with Irish Rail, for a combination of main line plus flexibility for onward travel. GoCar is a ‘members only’ car-sharing service, renting cars and vans by the hour, or the kilometre. Vehicles are available around Dublin, Cork, and 14 other stations in the Iarnród Éireann network. Also Rail Tours Ireland does a full range of day and multi-day tours. A caravan: Now that’s different! Before trains and cars, Irish nomads moved by horse-drawn caravans. Like a modern camper, they served as transport by day, and lodging by night. You can step back in time and experience the old tradition. For one or more nights, up to four people can travel, cook and sleep in a caravan, meander slowly along country roads, chatting at farms and pubs along the way. Horse-drawn caravan rentals are



available from Clissmann Horse Caravans in County Wicklow, Mayo Horse Drawn Caravan Holidays in County Mayo and Kilvahan Horse Drawn Caravans in County Laois. But remember, you won’t go far, and you can’t pick it up in one village, and drop it in another. Finally, horses! Discover Ireland's beauty and history on horseback. In six days you can trek 140 Miles from County Galway to the Burren and the spectacular Cliffs of Moher, with Equestrian Holidays Ireland. As if those are not enough, you can walk, hike, cycle, rent a Harley ( or go by barge (see the Ireland section at: "Céad mílle fáilte". 0043

Who doesn’t dread bending over in the middle of winter and trying to work the cap off the valve stem to fill up a tire that’s running a little low? With gloves on it can be a banana fingered hassle, without gloves your fingers will turn to icicles before you can get a tire filled up. With spring on the horizon it’s time to look into all the noises, bumps and rattles that we’ve been pretending not to hear all winter long.

5,000 km is still the recommended distance to go between oil changes, although some sources say you can stretch that out to 10,000 km. 5,000 km is about 65 trips from the roundabout in Hampton to uptown Saint John.

Springtime, not that you can tell the difference from winter right now, is also a great time of year to change the air filter in your car. Estimates vary between 15,000 to 30,000km for an air filter, so changing it once a year is a good idea for most drivers especially since it’s been sucking in dust and salt all winter. Fresh air for you, fresh air for your car. Everyone’s happy. Check your owner’s manual for how often you should change your spark plugs. Depending on the age and make of your vehicle it could be anywhere between 50,000 to 100,00km. This isn’t something you have to worry about every spring, but if you’ve had your car for three years and never had your plugs changed it might be

time to spend some time under the bonnet and put some new fire back in your car. Give your car a good wash, a visual inspection, and get it undercoated to keep it alive and running for as long as possible. Dirt and salt will coat the underside of your car all winter long and relying on puddles and Saint John fog to wash it off just isn’t going to cut it. Check the trouble areas (around wheel wells, rocker panels, trunk door) and anywhere water is likely to collect and sit to get ahead of any rust that might be forming on your car. The tried and true coin test for tread depth died with the penny, but now experts recommend that we sub in our quarters to check our tire depth. Hold the quarter and stick the caribou into the middle groove nose first. If you can see the Caribou’s nose, then you know it’s time to get your tire replaced soon. Check your tire in a few spots to get an accurate picture of your tires depth. If you have been braving the cold and checking your tire pressure monthly like you’re supposed to, that’s great but don’t stop now. The warmer air will inflate the tires past the recommended 32 PSI, so be sure to check them again. Spring is also a great time to look into getting your tires filled with nitrogen. It’s less prone to contracting & expanding, doesn’t hold water vapour and it leaks out slower because of the big nitrogen atoms. Nascar tires are all filled up with nitrogen. Check your fluids, belts and hoses. I don’t know about you, but my belt’s gotten a little tighter over the winter. Car’s belts can also change over the winter months. Our extreme Canadian cold causes the rubber to stiffen, crack and become brittle so it’s always a good idea to check whether your hoses and belts are still in good shape. If you see any fraying, balding, or cracking get them changed. A few hairline cracks might seem like something you can ignore, but sooner or later that belts going to give, your car is going to stop moving or overheat, and you’ll be stuck on the side of the road.

HAMPTON-PIGGS PEAK NEWS Big news for Hampton and the HamptonPiggs Peak Partnership! At 7:00pm on Friday, April 25 the Brigham Young University Sinfonietta, a 38-member chamber orchestra, will perform in Saint John at the Imperial Theatre with all proceeds going to IWK Foundation and Hampton-Piggs Peak Partnership. We are very excited to be part of this event - a world class performance at a world class venue for only $15/person or $30 for an entire family (ages 5 and over only please). And we couldn’t be prouder than to be included with such a worthy corecipient as the IWK Foundation. Although we are seemingly different, the IWK and the Partnership are both places where children are saved – some right here in the Maritimes; some on the other side of the world in Swaziland. BYU-Idaho’s premier orchestra will participate in a two-week tour during April and performs a wide range of musical selections, from the great classics to modern works from the 18th through the 20th centuries. Drawn from the BYU-Idaho Symphony Orchestra, members are selected by audition and represent the finest musicians on campus. Each player brings many years of experience

and adheres to an ambitious rehearsal and performance schedule. BYU-Idaho is located in Rexburg, Idaho, and serves students from all 50 states and over 40 countries. During the past Winter Semester, enrollment stood at 15,500 students, with 1,140 from Canada. The performance will be about 80-90 minutes in duration and should appeal both to those who enjoy the symphony experience and to those who want to support two great causes. If you fall into either of these categories (or especially if you fall into both) you can’t miss this special event. The orchestra is performing

at no cost and the venue has been paid for by a corporate sponsor so all proceeds will go directly to our charities. Tickets are available online at: imperialtheatre. or at the Imperial Theatre box office, 24 King Square South in Saint John. In Hampton, tickets are available at Pattison Financial, 950 Main Street between 8:30am and 4:30pm or by contacting me, Mark Bettle, at bettlem@ or 832-0003. Please spread the word, come… and bring a friend. It would be great to see a big crowd from Hampton “owning the Imperial” on April 25! 0010

There were approximately 55 women in attendance. Barb Heathcoat, from the Sussex Vale Transition House, spoke about this worthwhile charity and how it has assisted many women and their children in crisis. Judy Legere, founder of the Danny and Jessica Angel Foundation, gave a wonderful presentation on the numerous groups her charity assists - such as breakfast/lunch programs at various schools, the local food bank, and families in immediate need of groceries/clothing, to name a few. Lois King, manager of the Sussex Sharing Club, told us all about that organization’s programs and how they have helped thousands of people with immediate needs of food, clothing, and household items. While the member votes were being counted, Sally Kierstead informed the group that the money they donated in December of 2013 to the Sussex Rotary Club’s Coats for Kids program enabled that group to cover 95% of their 2014 program requirements, and passed along

a ‘huge’ thank you from the Rotary Club. The chosen charity for our March 21 meeting was the Sussex Sharing Club and they were presented with a cheque for $6,000!!

The sea captain, who was born and died in Hatfield Point, was involved with the tea trade. In April 1874, onboard the Berteaux, his Wife Maggie accompanied him on a voyage to Bombay India.

HAMPTON FOOD BASKET Thanks are extended to all the generous people who have contributed so much time, talent and financial assistance in the last month, you are a blessing to many who struggle to provide the very bare essentials to their loved ones. As the cost of living escalates at an alarming rate we encounter many who simply cannot provide the nourishment that is vital to good health, children find it difficult to achieve desired results at school when they are dealing with constant hunger and eventually society suffers along with them. We are in need of a few items, if you are replacing appliances or furniture and have any of the following to give away, please call Janice at 832-4340, leave a message if need be and she will return your call: 3 double beds; 1 queen bed; 1 twin mattress and a pressure cooker. Next preparation day will be on Wednesday, April 16 starting at 8:00am; clients will be served on Thursday, April 17 from 8:30-11:00am. Our friends Phillipe and Flo will be on hand to do tax return forms for clients - this is a

free and confidential service, so get your paperwork together and bring it in for this special help! We do have a couple of income tax receipts for which we have no address, if you are missing yours, please contact Betty at 832-7526 and it will be dispatched with haste. Thanks to everyone who supported us during the past year, may you be blessed abundantly! Our annual meeting for volunteers is on Thursday, May 1 at 7:00pm in Saint Alphonsus’ Church Hall.

We ask that you mark your calendars for the third Thursday of every month and come on that day. If you cannot attend then please designate a friend to pick up for you, provide them with a note to authorize the pick up and the medicare number of an adult in your family. ‘Inasmuch as ye have done it, unto the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me....’. 0029

 The Christian celebration of Easter marks the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. So where does the Easter Bunny come from and why do we sometimes celebrate Easter in March and sometimes in April. Because Easter is what is known as a movable feast. It is celebrated on the first Sunday after the full moon following the March Equinox. This means that the date can vary anywhere from March 22 until April 25. Many other Christian celebrations also move around the calendar in relation to the celebration of Easter. So, where did the egg laying rabbit come from? Rabbits and eggs have traditionally been tied to spring as symbols of fertility and rebirth celebrated by many religions around the world. The first mention of an Easter Bunny came from the Germans in the 1600s as The Oschter Haws (Easter Hare). A bunny who laid coloured eggs who would give them as gifts to good children. The Pennsylvania Dutch brought the tradition to the new world and fast forward 400 years and we have our modern Easter bunny who brings chocolates and small toys to children for Easter.

It was in 1950 that the Easter Bunny adopted the name, Peter Cottontail. Steve Nelson and Jack Rollins wrote the song “Here Comes Peter Cottontail”, Gene Autry sang it and it peaked at number 3 on the charts. Gene Autry is also the man behind the songs “Here Comes Santa Claus” prize winner & “Rudolph the Red from each publication Nosed Reindeer”. area The first mention of Peter Cottontail came from Thornton Burgess whose fictional bunny, Peter Rabbit, changed his name for a short period. The name Peter Cottontail has been associated with the Easter Bunny ever since.


The coloured eggs that the Easter Bunny delivered were dyed red (the color of blood to represent Christ’s sacrifice) & green, to represent spring. Eggs were originally dyed by boiling them in water with flower petals, but nowadays we can use special kits, food colouring, or fruit-drink powders. Happy Easter!

It was built out of chocolate and marshmallow and supported by an internal steel frame. • Many people assume that the Easter Bunny is a male because of the bowtie it is so commonly depicted wearing.

THERAPEUTIC RIDING PROGRAM NEEDS VOLUNTEERS Our program is called Shining Horizons Therapeutic Riding Association and has been in operation for over 15 years. Currently we are riding out of Foshay South Eventing barn and are using a wonderful horse named Parker. We ride Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings and Saturday mornings for seven to eight weeks starting April 22 and again in the fall. Because we only have the one horse we have 14 riders in the program . We are part of CanTRA (Canadian Therapeutic Riding Association), and is under the Para Equestrian division of Equine Canada - which governs all aspects of horses in Canada. Our group, SHTRA, has a Board of Directors, two certified instructors, an Instructor in Training, 14 riders and amazing volunteers… which we need more of. We teach the riders how to ride English, hold the reins, steer the horse, use their legs, seat and voice to ask the horse to go at different paces, do school figures and of course, we have fun

28 The Hampton Herald

with games (on horseback). Each rider needs three volunteers… one to lead the horse and two to walk beside the rider. Some riders just need the volunteers as spotters and others need to be held on. As far as the benefits… riding is a non-weight bearing activity, so easy on joints but great workout for core muscles which is very important, especially for those who have restricted movement. Riding has so many benefits, the riders are able to participate in an activity that is not available to a lot of people; for those in a wheelchair they actually get out of the chair and are at eye level with people or above. Exercises are so much more fun on horseback. Sense of confidence is amazing as they are in control of a 1000 lb animal and the horse never judges, he is just happy to do as the riders want. As far as the volunteers are concerned, we would commitment to one evening or Saturday per session and they are required to to go through a two-hour training session at the barn prior to the start of Therapeutic Riding. If you would like to become a volunteer with the program please contact 849-0149 or email: kest@ 2710

ASK THE CHEF MERINGUE Colin Sifton here again from Holly’s Restaurant and Catering with another answer to your question. One of my first articles was on pie crust and how to pre-bake the crust without it changing shape. From this, I received a question on meringue and how to keep it from shrinking and weeping? Making meringue goes back to the mid 1600’s where both the French and the Swiss take credit for its invention. Meringue is made by beating egg whites until very stiff and adding sugar. The secret to a good meringue comes from three different factors. Your egg white needs to be very clean; no yolk, no shell and a very clean dry bowl. If your egg whites have any bacteria, you will not get a stiff peak egg. Next, you add sugar until you get the consistency you require. Different sugars will produce different meringues. The more sugar you add the harder your meringue will be. You can stabilize your meringue by adding some acid; most cooks will use cream of tartar

but you can use vinegar. Meringue comes mainly in three different forms. French meringue, which most of us know from the top of the lemon meringue pie and simplest to make. This is the one described above. Italian meringue which is made with boiling sugar syrup instead of caster sugar. This gives a more stable soft meringue and found on such desserts as Baked Alaska and on lemon pie as well. This is the hardest meringue to perfect because your sugar temperature needs to be exact and if you add it too quickly it will cook your eggs. The third is a swiss meringue which is made over a double boiler until almost marshmallowy. They are baked in the oven and gives a meringue a harder shell. This would be a meringue used in Pavlova. To keep your meringue from shrinking inwards, try to make sure you attach the meringue to the crust. This will hold it enough while you cook to brown your meringue when making a pie. As far as weeping or the sweating of meringue this is next to impossible to prevent. Weeping

by colin sifton is caused by moisture either in your pie or the humidity in your refrigerator. One of the controlling factors in preventing weeping is how much sugar you use. Not enough sugar will cause weeping as the sugars are inadequately dissolved in the egg. So you now have three different methods of making meringue. Play around with each of them to find the one that best works for you because that is the fun in baking; trying new things and methods to come up with our own version of a classic recipe. 0040

The Pickwauket Lions Club would like to apologize to those patrons who showed up for our last breakfast only to find out that it had been cancelled. We had called the local radio stations and asked them to announce that it had been cancelled. We experienced difficulty gathering enough members or volunteers to work the breakfast because of vacations, sickness, and other Lion functions in the province. If the breakfast has to be cancelled again we will do our utmost to provide sufficient notice so you will not be inconvenienced. If you have considered volunteering and would be interested in helping the Lions during service projects please contact Stewart MacDonald 832-7253. Lion Don Doran. 2725

GET FRESH WITH FOOD GOING TO THE ROOT OF IT! According to Stats Canada, it is the 3rd leading cause of death for Canadian men. Almost 24,000 a year. Turmeric is a powerful force against prostate cancer. It’s a wonderful root, that we typically eat in powder form. Turmeric is one of the most medicinally packed foods I have read about. According to, it is also effective against Rheumatoid Arthritis, Cystic Fibrosis, high cholesterol and the prevention of Alzheimer's Disease. "In numerous studies, curcumin's [Turmeric Root] antiinflammatory effects have been shown to be comparable to the potent drugs hydrocortisone and phenylbutazone as well as anti-inflammatory agents such as Motrin." WOW!!! For many of you, turmeric is not as strange as you might think. It is an ingredient in every curry powder. Also, the active ingredient in turmeric is curcumin, which is often prescribed in pill form to patients

who suffer from arthritis. However, the most powerful source is straight from the fresh root. I am certainly not telling you to ignore what your doctor prescribes, but foods as medicinal as turmeric should be consumed as often as possible. Incredibly, as outlined by sources on, in 2005, curcurmin was featured in a study that compared it to the chemotherapy drug, Taxol. Mice were given human breast cancer directly into their lungs and separated into four groups (I know it is horrible, I am not endorsing animal cruelty). The first test group received no treatment as a control group. One test group received just Taxol, another test group received just curcurmin and the fourth received both Taxol and curcurmin. After five weeks, 95% of the control group had developed lung cancer, which is not surprising since they received no treatment. 75% of the group that received Taxol developed lung tumours, despite the powerful chemo drug. However, 50% of the curcurmin group had fought off the cancer and of the group that received both curcurmin

by Dave wolpin

and taxol, only 22% had any evidence of lung cancer. This means that curcumin alone, was more than twice as effective as the chemo drug and the two treatments combined compounded their efficacy. I know you are thinking, but Dave, how do I use it in my cooking? My favourite way is in a tea. I take a finger of turmeric and rinse it off. I cut it into chunks that will fit in my garlic press. I squeeze the turmeric through into a mug, one chunk at a time, cleaning out the bits of peel as I go. Then I add a couple spoons of honey to the mug and generously shake in some cloves, nutmeg and Ceylon cinnamon. Finally, I add some hot water, stir it all up and drink it. I also love to add turmeric to my juices, soups, stir fries and anywhere you'd normally use ginger. As you'd expect, Kredl's sells organic fresh and ground turmeric. 0039

Did you know...

TRAVEL INSURANCE Did you know……that even though you may have travel insurance through your benefits, credit cards, etc that it may not cover everything you think it does? A lot of people traveling think they have adequate coverage when really they don’t. Several companies cap coverage, only offering up to a certain amount on medical as well as emergency trip cancellation. In the event of an accident or claim you want to make sure your travel insurance is there for you and not adding stress to an already stressful situation. Travel Insurance can be quite cost effective and we all know how expensive vacation can be. Make sure you are properly covered! Contact us and we would be happy to go over the different packages available, and find one that best suits your needs. Amanda Foote Personal Lines Specialist Hovey Insurance & Financial Services

BASEMENT PLAYERS PRESENTS… This year the Basement Players Theater Group will be performing a farce-comedy titled "Laffing Room Only" by Tim Kelly. This play is set in an old rundown hotel, The Whispering Pines, that is definitely off the beaten path. Gloria Alexander is about to lose the dilapidated hotel for back-taxes. She'd gladly sell the place, but there are no takers. Enter two tax officials, with plans to

make the hotel a base for a sting operation. One hilarious complication collides with another up to the climax when each visitor turns out to have an unsuspected, ribtickling reason for being at the hotel. Basement Players began over 28 years ago to raise money for some local churches. It was co-founded by Joyce Griffiths and the late Glendon Kerr and the group has evolved from doing variety shows the church put on, to doing three-act comedy plays. Their first play "Too Many Andersons" was so much fun they decided to keep doing plays. Now 28 years later, they do 6 to 12 shows a season, in various locales and have supported a variety of charities since the beginning. Proceeds from this year’s production will go to the IWK Children's Hospital. Tickets ($10/children, $5/children 12 and under) are available from the sponsoring venue or at the door. All performances begin at 7:30pm. Locally, performances will be held: Saturday, April 12 - St. John’s United Church Hall (Sussex Corner); Friday, April 25 - Belleisle Regional High School (Rte 124, Springfield) and Saturday, April 26 - Harvey Hall, Riverside-Albert.

HAMPTON BANTAM BOYS BB CHAMPS The Hampton Bantam Boys Huskies are bantam provincial basketball champions, going 4-1 during the tournament hosted March15/16 at St-Stephen Middle School in St. Stephen NB. In their division there were six teams competing for the championship. The boys, ages 13 to 14, have been playing basketball for many years, wrapping up their experience together with bringing home the banner to Hampton Middle School. The Huskies were up against the likes of St-Stephen, Fundy, KVBA, Sackville and Ridgeview and it was KV the Huskies disposed of in the championship game. Despite taking the banner in the end, there was at least one point in the tournament the boys needed to gather themselves. “We were down 14 points in our second game and we managed to pull it together,” Myers said. “Our boys fought to catch up. During the break they started to understand that defense and boxing out was the key. We went on to lose the game only by 5.”

Photo: Coach - Laura Myers; Luka Malatestinic; Christian Allaby; Jonathan DesRoches; Ben Newton; Jacob Black; Joseph Doherty; Colton Mahoney; Vincent Cormier; Will vonRichter; Spencer Godreau; Jordan Wall; Brad Blizzard; Coach - Mark vonRichter. Although Laura Myers stresses the final win was a team effort, there were two players recognized for their play - Brad Blizzard was named player of the game and Will vonRichter was named hustler of the game.

“This was a great team effort and I want to applaud the team for being such a pleasure to coach, I also want to extend my gratitude to Mark vonRichter, our assistant coach, for his support this season and great coaching.” says Myers. 2707

So many people fail to get on with life because of the feelings you describe. Be assured that you will never forget someone who was so much a part of your life. After a while, the good memories grow dearer and the not so good ones will fade. No one can take from you the time you shared with this person. Often it makes us feel guilty to be alive when new opportunities come our way and we begin to accept new joy and happiness. It’s called ‘survivor’s guilt’. But remember that this is a normal reaction, and it soon will pass.

I have this fear of forgetting my loved one now that he/she is gone. Laughing and socializing with friends seems somehow disloyal.

HHS SCHOLARSHIP & BURSARY FOUNDATION Carol Spence and the Gang at Ossekeag Publishing would like to Congratulate

Dickinson & Baird Veterinary Clinic on your 1 year Anniversary!

The Hampton High School Scholarship and Bursary Foundation was established in 1994. Since then many scholarships have been granted to deserving Hampton High graduates - all thanks from the generosity of individuals and groups in our community. The deadline for the applications is May 23, 2014. Over the past two years the scholarship and bursary committee has been seeking graduates and award recipients to learn about their activities. We encourage all graduates to contact the committee at Here are two updates from previous recipients: Erin Gravel (Powe) graduated in 2003 and was the recipient of a scholarship from the Foundation's General Fund. After graduating from Hampton High School, Erin received her Bachelor of Science in Geology (Honours) from UNB in Fredericton in 2008. She has since worked in the mining industry as a geologist in northern Manitoba, central Queensland, Australia, and eastern Labrador. Currently, Erin lives in Vancouver with her husband. She is working as a Project Geologist for a mining management company, where she primarily focuses on developing coal exploration projects in western Canada. At her graduation in 2010, Andrea Taber was the recipient of the Ellen-Anne Memorial Scholarship. She attended her first year of studies at King's College in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and then took a year off when she discovered her true passion of fine arts. Andrea was subsequently accepted into a program of Fine Arts at the Nova Scotia College of Art & Design. Since discovering her love for art, Andrea has studied in various media at NSCAD including sculpture, fashion, ceramics and drawing. She will graduate in 2016 with her

Interdisciplinary BFA. The growth in the scholarship and bursary fund at Hampton High School reflects the value that higher education holds for our community; however, the need to enhance this fund with financial support is ongoing. Anyone wishing to donate to the award of their choosing may do so by sending cheques issued to the Hampton High School Scholarship and Bursary Foundation Inc.,34 Elizabeth Ave Hampton NB E5N 5P7.

MUSINGS by Debbie Hickey SNOW BUNNIES AND OTHER SCARY THINGS As Easter approaches and the snow hangs on, I remembered an Easter when the kids were young and they went out with their father to build a large snow Easter bunny instead of a snowman. It was out on the front lawn and was truly a thing of beauty. Well. . . to everyone but our dog. At that time we had a lovely golden retriever by the name of Sassy. If you are not familiar with the breed, picture a long haired yellow lab and you will be close enough. But it was a good thing she was beautiful and kind and gentle, because she sure wasn’t very smart. For whatever reason, Sassy had been in the house with me while the bunny construction was going on. When I let her out with me to go view the masterpiece, she raced around the corner to join the kids on the lawn, stopped dead upon sighting the snow bunny and gave a pretty good bark. When the bunny didn’t run, she did!

There was another time Michael had gotten a new truck. . . well, at least new to him. He has owned a brand new tractor, but never a brand new truck. Go figure. . . at any rate, once again let Sassy out of the house, dead stop at the sight of the new truck parked in the yard where the old truck normally sat, one bark and she was outta there! But she wasn’t always a “scaredy cat” dog. There was the time I and the kids came downstairs on a Sunday morning to have breakfast, I opened the door between the porch and the kitchen to let the dog out and discovered Sassy stretched out on the porch mat with a buddy. The buddy was a young man whom I did not recognize, and he did not stir. I promptly sent one of the kids back upstairs to get Micheal (thinking perhaps he knew the individual sound asleep in our porch), and meanwhile I let the dog out for her morning run. The fellow did not stir until we were finishing up our breakfast, at which time he blearily insisted he knew the people in this house. Seems someone had dropped him off

at the ferry and he was hoofing it to a friend’s house. Thought he was there, but obviously he was not. Sassy seemed quite content to have company on her mat, but Mike insists that had the fellow attempted to steal the silver she would have been all over him! “You can say any fool thing to a dog and the dog will just give you this look that says, 'My GOSH, you're RIGHT! I NEVER would've thought of that!” ~ Dave Barry. 0001
