On Our Cover Intersection of Winter Drive & Blizzard Street

My Husband and I had a lovely Sunday afternoon, I went shopping while he puttered away at his shop. Arriving home for supper I was absolutely dismayed when Kevin discovered a puddle in the middle of our kitchen floor. I immediately began wondering how I would convince Kevin that it wasn't necessary to re-home my incredibly difficult cat, now that she had decided to use our floor as her litter box. Then a drip from our ceiling vent landed in the puddle and that created a whole new concern. We investigated, thought we solved the issue, cleaned up and settled in for supper. A few minutes later and I realized my Sunday evening had been completely high-jacked as the vent had started dripping again. Then the drip began increasing in intensity and, thanks to our vaulted ceiling, the water was trickling across the ceiling towards the cupboards. My father-in-law was driving in from Pearsonville to have a look, and Kevin left to find a ladder, leaving me alone with the drip. So there I was standing in the middle of the kitchen holding my swiffer dust mop wrapped in paper towel up to the ceiling to soak up the drip, as the bucket system was no longer working, when one of our friends arrived. Talk about being happy to see someone! Kevin had sent him a text when the drip first appeared asking for suggestions and Brent came over to check things out. I learned more about air circulation in the next half-hour than I ever thought I would need to know, but we still weren't certain what exactly was going on. When Kevin and his Dad

arrived, Brent was elbow deep in our ceiling, soaking up the water pooling in the vent pipe. It was decided that a more thorough investigation was necessary so I spent the next two and a half hours tucked up in bed, out of the way, while the men climbed up and down the ladder, sticking their arms in various vents trying to discover the problem. When it became clear that we needed to wait for daylight, I was left with a bucket sitting on my step stool, which in turn was sitting on a towel in the middle of my kitchen floor. The bucket was collecting water that was slowly dripping from a piece of bendable pipe sticking out of my ceiling. Brent came back on Monday to have another look and, thank heavens, determined there was an ice build up on the roof which has since been fixed. The pipe and bucket need to remain while we wait for the water to dry up, which to a neat freak like me is really hard to look at, but I can't complain because, hey... my cat gets to stay. I'm not sure that Kevin will agree with my assessment given his dislike of the cats but I'll take it as a win. 0001

HAMPTON FOOD BASKET NEWS The Food Basket is open for clients to receive on the 3rd Thursday of every month from 8:30 until 11:00am; Preparation will take place the day before (Wednesday), from 8:00 until 10:00am. Dates for March: Preparation; Wednesday, March 15, Client day Thursday, March 16. During the March and April Client days there will be people on hand to help clients with their income tax returns; this is a free and confidential service, so bring in all your documents and take advantage of this opportunity. We only give to clients once a month, by limiting in this way we do give a substantial amount of food and this in turn saves clients the expense of gas money that a more frequent hand out would cause; many clients live a lengthy distance from the food Basket. In light of this we ask that clients either come themselves on the right day or make arrangements for someone else to pick up for them, that person will need a permission slip from the client, along with their Medicare number. Information numbers, Catherine 832-1235; Janice 832-4340; David 6448476; Louise 832-5303; Betty 832-7526. We greatly appreciate the many organizations that gather nonperishable food for this outreach and the value of the provisions they bring in would be hard to assess; the publicity engendered by such food drives is paramount. However, for the individual who wishes to assist us, we advise that, rather than bringing boxes of food to us, you might consider simply making a cash donation! This has three advantages; the individual receives a Tax Receipt; he or she does not have to lug heavy boxes of food to

us and the Food Basket can buy in bulk the items that are most serviceable to our clients at a great saving over that which is available to the individual. Our thanks are extended to all who help in any way to maintain this vital outreach to those in need. Income tax receipts have been prepared and mailed, if you have any concerns regarding these please contact our Treasurer at 832-4061. Our mailing address is: Hampton Food Basket, 39 Tilley Street, Unit 2, Hampton E5N 5B4. ‘Inasmuch as ye have done it unto the least of these my brethren, 0029 ye have done it unto me...’.

HAMPTON-PIGGS PEAK NEWS We have received a number letters from the students we are supporting in Piggs Peak. I thought I would share some of their words “I am a 14 year old girl whose father died last year. My life is difficult since my father died because my mother is unemployed. I was to drop out of school due to lack of money but because of your help, I am proud to be at school. I would like to thank you that you give to Swazis even though it is distant from your home country Canada. Because of your help, I rejoice and wish you all the best.” “I want to thank you for paying school fees for me. I want to grow up to motivate young people to work hard at school, despite the challenges they face. It is a wonderful blessing to be in a relationship with you even though you are far away. I feel blessed to have you. When I grow up I also want to give back to society like you did to me and the other students at Peak Central High School.” “Since I started high school the sponsorship has been there for me and I appreciate that. I am eager to be part of the sponsorship when I am old enough

Peak Central High School students writing letters and financially able to do the same thing for other vulnerable children.” “Thanks a lot for all you have offered to me and all that you are still doing for me. You saved my life. In times of hardship when nobody was there, no willing people to pay my school fees, where I almost gave up hope, you warmly picked me up and opened your wide warm hands for me. I love you and wish you all the best.” “I write this letter to once again thank all the people of Hampton for helping me with my school fees. You kind people have been sunshine on a cold day. Ever since I received your financial help I have

been able to apply more hard work to my school work because I believe you chose me and put me in your hearts because you saw something great in me. Once I am done in school I assure you that I will give back to you.” “I thank you, Hampton, for the help you offered to me as I was struggling to pay school fees. You became the saviour of my future. May God bless you and continue helping others who are needy like me.” If you are interested in supporting the work we do or just want some information, contact me, Mark Bettle, at markbettle1@ gmail.com or 832-0003.

When Will I Stop Crying? Crying is not a measure of one’s grief. There are all kinds of appropriate reac�ons to loss and one of them is crying. However, if you don’t feel like crying, that’s all right too. Certain personali�es cry when they are hurt, certain others don’t cry. We believe that tears bring a level of relief for some, a way to let the pain out. Tears will come as long as they need to. If the tears are there, let them fall, rather than choking them back so their cleansing value can be realized. On the other hand, if you feel no tears coming, don’t feel obligated to force them.

SELF ESTEEM GRIEF AND SELF ESTEEM From the moment we learn of a loved one’s death, our life changes forever. Our self esteem can easily be impacted by the grieving process. We become more fragile, sensitive and vulnerable when struggling with our loss. As many who have experienced loss know, grief and bereavement can be complicated and no two people grieve the same. However, a common experience that some share is a loss of self esteem. Low self esteem can manifest itself in many ways. Often, we feel we have no control and this can leave us feeling powerless. We lose our identity - we are no longer a mother, daughter, husband, brother, friend, etc. We may also feel that we are no longer needed. Uncertainty for the future may make us feel vulnerable and like a victim. We may set unrealistic goals as to how long it should take us to ‘get over’ the death of our loved one. We most likely feel insecure because our life changes so drastically after a loss. It may

HALL

cause us to distance ourselves emotionally. Having low self esteem prior to a loss only complicates grief issues even further. You’ve lost a loved one - don’t lose yourself too! So often, others expect you to ‘get back to normal’ within weeks. This is unrealistic due to the fact that your life has changed and it will never be the same as it was before. The grieving process is healthy and adaptive. There is no time limit! Be gentle with yourself. Deal with your pain. You don’t have to forget the person who has given you so much to remember. Cherish the time you had with them. Speak of your fond memories. Notice the small acts of love and kindness that people bestow upon you and know that you deserve it. Do something good for someone else in need. This is not only good for your self esteem but it is also good for the person you have helped. Find a nurturing support group where you are accepted for who you are. Accept yourself.

Accept that you are hurting. Your pain is natural and is nothing to be ashamed of. You may feel incomplete or ‘less than’ without your loved one. The truth is you are complete, whole and so much more because of them. They helped mold you into the person that you are today. Be thankful. Self esteem is the resource you must boost, to heal yourself and move on. Go ahead and know deep in your heart that your loved one is proud of you.

TALES FROM THE CAMERA BAG the camouflaged owl in the tree. Considering that photography can be a mediation, also consider how grace brought you to this moment. While travelling along Route 790 I felt compelled to stop by a tiny cove; it took me nine images to get to that one image that was meant to be. Sometimes, I need to put my camera down and “Be in this Place” (a true New Brunswicker, eh) mindful of what pulled me here. There is an extreme satisfaction that comes from this kind of imagery, ecstasy if you will. I have other photographers who call this ‘being in the zone’ - when, the world somehow disappears and now it’s just you and your gear and the images you will create. Mindful photography lets us become aware of shapes, light, shadow play, composition, the way things interact with one another. Being mindful will mean putting away your preconceived ideas, your anxieties and possibly technique. While on Grand Manan I was not aware of an image that I was drawn to. My dear

MINDFULNESS While meditating the axiom “One day at a time” a single word sprang forward with such clarity - “Mindfulness”. Mindfulness plays a big role in thoughtful, considerate, photography. Let’s start with the simple things like gear selection. I am very fortunate to have three great cameras. At the start of my day of making images I will be mindful of the camera I chose; will it be full frame, does it need to be lightweight and quick or rugged with fast focus for the outdoors. Which lens should I bring to get the images I want. These are the practical aspects of mindfulness. I have a dear friend that says ( jokingly) that I spend my life looking through a small hole on the back of my camera. What he fails to realize is that while gazing through the viewfinder I am mindful of what I am seeing, I become more aware of what I am seeing. The play of fog on the Hammond river, but being still and waiting I begin to see the red canoe emerge from the fog or

BEGINNER CLASSES SPRING 2017 Taoist Tai Chi classes for Beginners will commence March 2 at the Hammond River Angling Association for KV and Hampton. Taoist Tai Chi is a body-mindspirit approach to health. It begins with learning a sequence of specific, flowing movements, which engage the whole body. Movement is continuous, yet within each there is a focus on balance, stillness and alignment. Relaxation and stress relief often result. The health benefits of Taoist Tai Chi practice can be experienced in many ways ranging from maintaining

already excellent health to significant improvements in mobility, flexibility, pain management and circulation. Our programs are offered by the Fung Loy Kok Institute of Taoism which is a charitable organization dedicated to making the benefits of Taoist Tai Chi available to all. Classes have been held in Southern NB for over 25 years. The Beginner program runs for four months. The cost is $140 (seniors and students $110). Join us for one of our introductory sessions. There is no obligation. (See classified ad for details). 4426

WELL RESTED PREGNANCY AND SNORING: A CAUSE FOR CONCERN Pregnancy is such an exciting time. The marvelous changes to your body, the preparations for your home and hopes for the future are all highlights of that time. Some aspects of pregnancy are not so pleasant, such as heartburn, extra weight gain and sleep disturbances. Getting comfortable during sleep can be near impossible when you are pregnant. Your larger belly can be difficult to position. Another common and dangerous condition is Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). OSA is a common breathing disorder marked by heavy snoring, pauses in breathing, gasping for air and daytime sleepiness. Other factors in OSA include morning headaches, a large neck, being overweight and high blood pressure. Pregnant women at risk for developing OSA are those who are already overweight or obese, or who have gained excessive weight while pregnant. The extra weight

around your neck can cause your throat to close off during sleep. Those with gestational diabetes or high blood pressure are at higher risk as are those with allergies and nasal congestion commonly caused by higher estrogen levels of pregnancy. OSA causes lowered oxygen levels and increased inflammatory processes during sleep. The associated risks of having untreated OSA during pregnancy include gestational diabetes and pre-eclampsia. These conditions are very dangerous for mum and baby. Mums with sleep apnea are three times more likely to have a caesarean section, have smaller babies that are more likely to be admitted to the Neonatal ICU for breathing problems. You most likely will not notice that you are stopping breathing at night, but your bed partner will notice increased snoring and even cessations in breathing at times. You may feel more tired during the day and even doze off at times. If you think you have sleep apnea, or having started snoring since being pregnant and especially if you have high blood pressure,

discuss this with your doctor. You should be tested. This can be done in the sleep lab, or done in your home with a simple device. Sleep apnea can be treated very effectively to keep you breathing through the night for you and your baby. Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) is the gold standard of treatment. You wear a little mask over your nose and it blows fresh air in while you sleep to keep your throat opened. Be sure to get this looked after as soon as you suspect there may be a problem. You want your pregnancy to be a joyous and healthy as it possibly can be for you and your baby. 0038

Living Well

Aging Well

Hi my name is Colleen DeVine, today I am a Health & Fitness Coach, Personal Trainer and Certified in Nutrition. What people may not know about me is that I was a binge eater, binge drinker; I’ve been bullied about my weight and survived two abusive relationships, both mentally & physically. I hit rock bottom a few years ago and because of it had to declare bankruptcy, fell into a depression, and have a form of high functional anxiety, which makes it hard to leave the house some days. Despite all that which could very well have caused me give up hope and trust, there were days I had given up hope, I have always felt deep down that I had something to share with this world.

So today I wanted to share a piece of my story of how through Fitness, Clean Eating, Personal Development and becoming involved in a positive, supportive community helped me to turn it all around.

Colleen deVine

My weight was always a topic of conversation growing up. People would tell me I was too skinny or felt the need to make a point of it when I did gain weight. I grew up in a house where my Mom was always on a different diet and never happy with her own body. So, I become very self-conscious about my body at a young age. After university and into my 20s I gained weight because I was always the “skinny” kid so I never had to think about food, I just ate. Then I started drinking more & more to fit in and was trying a little too hard to be one of the “cool” kids. I worked in the restaurant industry for 15 years and therefore never had to learn how to cook or what is healthy; I never had to deal with it.

When I finally changed careers, I moved into an office job and by that time old habits had caught up to me. I didn’t know how to stop and I certainly didn’t know how to start being “healthy”. I used to say things like “I can lose 10lbs anytime, I’m just not ready yet”, but who was I kidding, I was slowly dying inside. I can remember trying to tell people how I felt about my weight and how uncomfortable I was, only to receive responses ranging from “Colleen, you’re crazy” to “Wait! What weight, you look fine”; but I wasn’t fine. My self-confidence was gone, I stopped smiling, stopped wanting to leave the house, and my drinking got heavier to try and escape my reality that I didn’t know how to get out of.

To this day, I don’t know how I found her that fateful night in February 2015, but that conversation has forever changed my life. Through the process of learning how to take care of myself I learned an important lesson; that it is not selfish to want to be happy & healthy and it’s only through taking care of ourselves first that we can then be present to take care of others.

Thank You Is Never Enough

The family of the late Thomas J. Locke Sr. would like to extend their heartfelt thanks to all those who sent food, donations, cards and condolences to help us get through this difficult time. Thank you is never enough to express how much your thoughtfulness has meant to us.

Evan Smith Dec 9, 1985 Feb 28, 2009

Evan, you are in our hearts and minds everyday. Love you forever, Mum, Dad, Shannon and Leah

Carol Kathleen Myers

Rev. Jim and Ruth Ann Rhyno and Becky Rhyno, we have no words to express how much it meant for you to do the service, music and reading for us. The personal touch you put into your words was perfect and very comforting Jim. Uncle Tom would have loved knowing you all were there. Special thanks to the following: Nurses and Staff of the Sussex Health Centre for the great care and attention given to Dad when we couldn’t be there; Dyson, Jeff and the entire staff at Reid’s Funeral Home, you made our difficult journey a little less difficult, and for that we thank you; Lydia Rogers and Ian Tupper for the beautiful and heartfelt rendition of Hallelujah. It was absolutely perfect. Blanche Jones and our beautiful “Queens”... there are no words that would ever tell you how much we appreciated the way you stepped up to look after the reception and food for us. It was so nice to be able to go through this knowing that everything would be taken care of and perfect for all of us. Last but not least... thank you to our children for being pallbearers. Grampy would have been so proud of you all.

1931-2017 Perhaps you sent a lovely card or sat quietly in a chair, Perhaps you sent a floral piece, if so we saw it there; Perhaps you spoke the kindest words as any friend could say, Perhaps you were not there at all, just thought of us that day. Whatever you did to console our hearts, we thank you so much whatever the part.

Sincerest gratitude from the Myers Family 14

FLOWERS IN BLOOM AND OPEN HOUSES Is anyone else as tired of winter as I am? Don’t get me wrong! There’s something peaceful about watching a gentle snow fall and I love the way my yard looks when covered with a pristine blanket of white. However, I’m not a fan of cold temperatures or icy roads at the best of times and after having an entire season’s worth of snow arrive in a twenty-four hour period, coupled with the joy of digging out of literally several feet of snow, I am more than ready for spring temperatures and green grass. Which got me to thinking about my favourite spring pass-time, gardening. What better way to overcome the winter blues than dreaming of the smell of fresh turned earth and the colours of those first spring flowers? Every year about this time I start pouring over my Vesey’s catalogues, circling all the new blooms, bulbs and seed I want to try. I start looking at different ideas on Pinterest and wishing I could wander around one of the local nurseries. My husband, Kevin, starts reminding me of the size of my current gardens and the fact that, no, I don’t really need six new plants, because where will I put them? One thing led to another, and the

Ossekeag team has decided to welcome spring with a complete overhaul of our office’s garden and yard. It seems fitting: new management, new look. Also, I get to look at all sorts of new and interesting products, and not worry about fitting said items into my garden at home. In that regard, Kevin and I would love to hear from our friends and neighbours- what would you like to see take place on the grounds of 242 Main Street? Red and white annuals to help celebrate our great Nation’s 150th? Maybe a riot of colour and different blooms in a variety of containers? Or something calming, such as shrubbery and evergreens? Personally, I love the wild abandon of the bushes and lilies that are currently trying to overrun the driveway, but it may be time to regain control - in as much as anyone can control the freedom associated with nature. The choices are endless, and we welcome your comments. You can contact me at amanda@ossekeag. ca, Kevin at kevin@ossekeag.ca, or the Ossekeag staff at info@ossekeag.ca. Kevin and I will be hosting an open house on Saturday, June 3, from 1:00-4:00pm, as an opportunity to meet everyone and hear your thoughts about the garden and other

upcoming ideas. We welcome you to stop into the office to share some treats, look over our garden plans, and see where the magic happens. We will also be holding our first colouring contest, so bring the whole family. All pictures submitted by children under the age of 12 will be featured on our website and Facebook page as part of our upcoming “Kids’ Corner”. Looking forward to your input as we move forward with the next stage of our adventure! 4436

Refreshments provided.  Tickets are $5 and will go on sale at the Seniors’ Resource Centre, Brunswick Square, Level III, on Wednesday, March 15, 9:00am and at Exhibition Park at 10:00am.   For further information, please call the Seniors’ Resource Centre, 633-8781.  4372

1926 Graduating Class Crest

FINEM RESPICE In David G. Keirstead's wonderful book - Hampton Consolidated School: A Story Worth Telling, he writes about how it was common for several graduating classes in the early 20th century to have their own class colours and motto. So, imagine how incredible it was to have the Hampton High School Principal contact the Kings Co. Museum to say they had found, in their boiler room, a

number of crests from the old Hampton Consolidated School. When he first called, we were thinking of those little cloth crests you buy when you're on vacation that get sewn on jackets. When we saw the school crests he was talking about, we were blown away. These are huge, solid wood crests and many of them have signatures on the back! The one I'm writing about today is from 1926. You can see the "HCS" painted in gold and outlined in black at the top, with the 1926 class moto "Finem Respice" in the middle, and "1926" in gold paint outlined in black at the bottom. According to MerriamWebster, this Latin expression is translated to "consider the end: live so that your life will be approved after your death;, also: consider the consequences of your actions." It's about 32" in height and 27" across. It's made up of 4 pieces of board all different widths, about 3/4" thick with bevelled edges. On the back you can see the boards are held together with two pieces of wood screwed into the main boards. There is also a lot of water damage visible that did not reach the front. All 11 graduates signed the back of the crest. They also wrote the class colours - gold and black, and the class motto - Finem Respice. The crest itself was actually made by one of Sin

Also on the program is “Dynamus for String Quintet” written by Canadian Junowinning composer Allan Gordon Bell in 1980 and the Haydn String Quartet, op 20 no. 4 - a comical and witty string quartet with a melancholy second movement in a beautiful theme and variation form. Admission is $26/adults, $10/students and children under 12 are admitted free. 4428
