THE CRAYON BOX GRASSROOTS
Continued from last issue… One of the main priorities of the Green Party is to improve democracy. When asked about whether they believe, as some New Brunswickers do, that politicians frequently go back on their word, all three agreed. Ms. McAllister thought that politicians should be more careful when making promises and, if they can’t keep one, come clean and explain what happened. Promises, she notes, are easy to make but harder to put into practice. She also advocated for more town halls, which increase voter engagement and transparency. Mr. Sabine said that we need a system to hold politicians accountable, as he does not feel like an adequate system exists. They also were well aware of a question they’ve said has been on many people’s minds, “why Green?” They argue that the Green Party would be different than the others. Ms. McAllister points to the Green Party principles and platform, which are well-developed and informative. She claims that the party and especially David Coon, are in touch with not only the people, but with their other party members in a way no other party is. All candidates brought attention to the party policy of not having whipped votes, where party members are required to vote with the party. Ms. Merritt-Gray said that if her constituents disagreed with what the party was proposing, she wouldn’t vote with her party, which is how she thinks democracy should work. Mr. Sabine says that he’s in it to make a change, not for the money. He’s even pledged, if elected, to give half of any money he would receive to notfor-profit charities. He says, “You know when you vote Liberal and Conservative,
Tony Raymond Lower Millstream
[you know] what you’re getting… if you vote Green and it’s the same thing, what are you out?” Finally, all three candidates made clear that they thought the politicians from the other parties were good people with good intentions, but since, according to them, other parties make their politicians vote with the party, they claim those politicians are limited in how much they can actually help. Both Ann McAllister and John Sabine thought they’d be blue crayons. To Mr. Sabine, blue represents a medium colour, one that doesn’t stand out, but one he finds relaxing, especially in the blue skies and water. He often wears blue and has had several blue cars. To Ms. McAllister, blue stands for harmony, collaboration, and being a team player. Marilyn Merritt-Gray chose a green crayon, saying that it’s the colour of the natural world, of spring, and of the land. Their advice: vote. In Mr. Sabine’s riding, 41% of people didn’t vote in the last provincial election. That means that only about half the population is actually being represented. As the title (which is an ABBA reference) suggests, the Green party wants voters to take a leap of faith and try something new. They want you to take a chance on Green. 0011

SELF ESTEEM FRIENDS: GROW OR GO Plato once stated, “People are like dirt. They can either nourish you and help you grow as a person, or they can stunt your growth and make you wilt and die”. In your everyday life you are surrounded by a variety of people. Having friends certainly boosts your health, but choosing people who make you feel more positive increases the benefits. Are your friends negative? Do they complain most of the time? Do your friends talk only about themselves? Be very particular about who you spend your time with. Surround yourself with more loving, positive, supportive people… the kind that make you feel good. People who are negative, demanding or just plain mean are toxic. They are not only toxic to your physical health but your mental health and to your soul. These types of people suck the life right out of you, making you feel tired and drained. Your well-being can easily be influenced by those around you and your moods and feelings
become contagious. While it can be comforting to vent with others in similar life situations, you must refrain from complaining and projecting negativity all the time. It is not healthy. You are allowed to eliminate toxic people from your circle of friends and fill your circle with more positive people. And as you do so, you will notice your quality of life improve and your pain decrease. You will begin making better decisions. Surround yourself with positive people as much as you can. Be a positive, supportive person. Positive attracts positive. Think more deeply about the people you interact with. Work toward filling your life with others that cultivate healthy and positive relationships. It may not always be possible but in your personal life, you can take control over the people with whom to surround yourself. Stop relationships or lessen contact when you realize someone is toxic for you. It really is not as difficult to do as we make it out
to be. Take a few moments to reflect on how certain people make you feel. Do they add something constructive to, or subtract from, your life? If a friend zaps your strength, you can simply decide to tell them how you feel or distance yourself from them. The moment you are more candid about your own feelings, you become empowered. Choose your friends with care - they create the environment in which you will either thrive or wilt. Give everyone an opportunity to be your friend, but only share your hopes and dreams with those who value them as much as you do. 0027

TENDING TO MY PATCH SPRING LAWN CARE TIPS Raking will be your first task of spring lawn care! The raking will control thatch and clean up winter debris too. As you survey your lawn in spring, see if there are any matted patches, in which the grass blades are all stuck together. This can be caused by a disease known as snow mold. New grass may have difficulty penetrating these matted patches. But raking should be sufficient to solve this problem. Just when you should perform any of these spring lawn care tasks will depend upon the climate of your own region. For instance, when you're pretty sure the snow season is over in your region, begin raking. Liming: A soil sample will give you the accurate levels of soil fertility and nutrient levels from random representative samples that are taken. It’s easy- do it yourself or have it done by a professional. Want more information on soil sampling? Call 432-1824. The most frequently asked question regarding lawns: presence of moss in my lawn. What should I do? Moss is an indication of acid PH in the
affected area, but grass likes a neutral pH. You can solve this problem by liming your soil at the recommended rate provided by soil test. In southern NB liming each year will not hurt. Overseeding: Is your lawn riddled with bare patches due to dog spots, heavy traffic or neglect? If so, you may need to apply grass seed to fill in those bare patches. This solution is known as overseeding. Rake the area of all dead debris and remove, and then apply seed. Fertilizing: Depending on newly seeded or established lawns will determine the type and numbers on a chemical/manmade fertilizer. Many fertilizer companies provide a schedule for fertilizing lawns. Your lawn has survived another NB winter and is looking good: fertilize organically by using compost and mulching mowers. Grass clippings from your mulching mowers are a great source of nutrients for your lawn. Pests & Bugs: Try using natural insect controls and eco friendly green products
for your lawn. Biological Control uses beneficial living organisms to control other pests and insects. Many types of Beneficial Nematodes are available for application through a hose end sprayer. Grubs: They are the larval stage of June Bugs, Japanese Beetles & European Chafer. By applying these living organisms they hunt down and kill the grubs. Application is dependent on temperature. Other types available can be used for weevils and sod webworm. For more information please contact us. 0034 Edited for space, see full article at ossekeag.ca.

We often remind families that unlike a birthday or anniversary, your loved one will only pass away once. Take time to appreciate your loved one and what they meant to you. No matter what the arrangements are that you and your family choose, understand it is no small thing to celebrate your loved one’s life. We recommend putting your normal routine on hold, even if just for a short period of time. Focus on what’s important in the moment, and let yourself slow down from usual busyness of life. Take time to recognize the reality of their death, slowing down to focus on your grief and your journey through it.

DIRECTOR’S NOTES NOTES FROM IMPERIAL Hello Spring. Hello budding trees and sunny skies. We have missed you. We could have done without the terrible flooding (thoughts go out from the Imperial team to everyone that was affected) but we’re still glad that you are here. For us at Imperial spring brings with it more than the welcome flowers and warmer weather, it also signals that it is time to put all of our next Season plans into place as we prepare for our annual Launch in June. This particular Season Launch is rather special though. Why so special you ask? Reason #1 – It is our new Executive Director’s first Season Launch. Angela has worked over the last year researching and curating acts to track down the most dynamic, diverse and fun artists that she could find to create a full list of shows to please any taste. And while this may sound like its fun
(which it is) it is also hard work. Angela may make it look easy but it is not. Reason #2 – This isn’t just any Season Launch this is the Season Launch of our 25th Season as the restored Imperial Theatre. Now, many of you may not recall the Bi-Capital Project, which brought an entire city together for a common cause (Imperial Theatre) but… it was a thing of beauty. Every neighbourhood, every school, every person was involved and it seemed to signify what Saint John could do when it really put it’s mind to it. The Project started in 1986 and took twelve years to complete and while it was a tough, long and I’m sure, sometimes pretty lonely road for those at the centre of it, they stayed committed their goal of giving our city a quality, professional, beautiful building and came out victorious for it’s relaunch on May 24th, 1994. As we kick-off this 25th Season on June 5th
we’ll be filling the city in on the fabulous shows that we have planned for you and while this is fun and exciting, the truly very best thing about this Launch is the reminder it gives us of just how we got here. We got here because the people of Saint John and Surrounding Areas gave of themselves. They gave their time, their money and their hearts and while it may sound corny, Imperial would not be here today without every single one of you. You made this happen. You gave life back to this historical building and helped welcome artists from across the world to its stage. You made it possible for thousands of local school children to see live, professional theatre in their hometown. You did this. 0030 Thank you so very much! B. xo Bethany Stout

MORE THAN FITNESS GET THE WHOLE FAMILY MOVING National Health & Fitness Day is coming up on Saturday, June 2 and this is a great time to try something new and encourage the whole family to get moving. While every day is a great day to get active, this fitness day initiative, which was started in 2014, is a way to encourage and bring attention to the need for more physical activity for all Canadians. Sadly, we are slowly becoming less and less active and this is not only adults, but our children as well. One of the saddest statistics that I have heard to date is that the current generation of children coming up is the first generation in history that can expect to live a shorter life span than their parents. With the incredible advances we have made in health care and the access we have to so many treatments, it is shocking and sad to hear this trend and the biggest contributing factor to this problem is inactivity. So - what can you do to change this
statistic for your family? By thinking about activities that you can do together and making physical activity and healthy living a part of your lifestyle, your whole family can benefit. Are there activities that you all enjoy doing together? Make a point to schedule them in to your calendar and ensure that you make getting some activity each and every day a priority. Whether it is getting outside and enjoying the natural beauty of our area with hiking or other outdoor activities or whether you are participating in an organized sport or fitness class of some kind, there are so many things that you can take advantage of with options for all ages. This year, Lifestyles Fitness will be marking National Health & Fitness Day with Free fitness for the whole family! Join us in the Town Square Pavilion for fun-filled fitness classes and kids’ activities from 9:30-11:30am, open to one and all. We will also be opening
up our health & wellness centre to the community for anyone who wants to drop by for a free workout. Stop by anytime from 8:30am- 1:00pm for a tour and a chance to make use of our facility at no charge. There are many organizations offering events and activities to celebrate National Health & Fitness day so be sure to check them out and see what is being offered near you. You can visit the National Health & Fitness Day website at nhfdcan.ca. 0044 Edited for space, see full article at ossekeag.ca.

THE BACKROAD BALL
2017 Backroad Ball
The sound of motorcycles will echo throughout Kennebecasis Valley from June 15-17, but this isn’t your typical biker crowd. For the past two years, female motorcyclists from the Maritimes and beyond have arrived
in Penobsquis for a weekend of music, tattoos and winding back roads. The Backroad Ball - a women's motorcycle adventure weekend & campout - was created in 2016 to inspire a sense of community amongst female
motorcyclists in Eastern Canada. The annual event has drawn bikers from as far as Pennsylvania and Alberta. This year, female-identifying motorcyclists will be treated to a live show with the Maritime’s own hard rockin’ Christine Campbell and Kylie Fox and the Hound (Saint John, NB). But that’s not all - there will be karaoke, moto-games, tarot card readings, food vendors and much more! Registration is open to all licensed female-identifying motorcyclists as well as moto-curious women regardless of motorcycle make or type, club affiliation, or age (19+). Registration is open until Saturday, June 9 and ranges from $60-$70, which includes two nights of camping, all music, entertainment and something to remember the event by such as a sticker, patch, or poster. Registration and event info available online at thebackroadball.com. 4886

Hampton Piggs Peak - IT’S AN AMAZING COMMUNITY “It’s an amazing community.” That’s what Blair Hyslop, the new owner of Kredl’s Corner Market, says about Hampton. Blair, like thousands of other people in New Brunswick, was impacted by the disastrous flooding when the water rose over Kredl’s yard and into his garden centre. I had the chance to briefly talk to Blair on one of my regular walks across the green bridge and he agreed it wasn’t what he had in mind for his first year in Hampton. But he also wasn’t expecting the mass influx of people
from around Hampton who came to his aid. Blair said, “It was overwhelming.” The enormous outpouring of support that came from our small town made national news. In an interview with The Globe & Mail, Blair spoke about how people arrived by the dozens and filled over 4000 sandbags to protect his business. He said, “At one point, when the wall was built, I thought everyone would go home but they stayed, and they raked, and they shovelled, and they filled 20 trucks with debris. They waded out to their waist, pulling in pallets
Elizabeth Anne (Drummond) Jardine We, the family of Elizabeth Anne (Drummond) Jardine, extend our sincere thanks for the expressions of sympathy, flowers, memorial donations, cards, messages, visits to the funeral home and for attendance at the service. Thank you to Rev. Canon David Barrett for the lovely service. Thank you also to George Urquhart, soloist, and Andrew Hopper, organist, for their much appreciated participation. To the staff of Reid’s Funeral Home, your guidance and caring were greatly appreciated. Also, a special thank you to her cousins and friend for acting as pallbearers. In lieu of thank you cards, a donation in Elizabeth’s memory will be made to St. Peter’s Anglican Cemetery, Upham, NB.
Burial will take place at St. Peter’s Cemetery, Upham, on Saturday, June 2nd at 11:00am.
The Hampton Herald
and things that were floating in the water. It was very emotional to see that people did that just to help the community and help us in the community and, really, we don’t have the words to express how grateful we are for the outpouring of support. It’s an amazing community.” Blair is new to Hampton and he is just discovering something that I have known most of my life. Hampton is a special place. The Hampton-Piggs Peak Partnership is evidence of that. I am not aware of anywhere else in the world where an entire town has gotten behind a charitable organization with the express purpose of providing help… and hope… to another town on the other side of the world. Twelve years ago when I heard Thandi Nhlengenthwa speak about the devastating impact of AIDS in Swaziland – the 12-year old girl caring for her dying parents and then faced with raising her younger siblings on her own; the 80 year-old grandmother single-handedly caring for 20 grandchildren because all her children, their parents, had died from AIDS – I knew the help they needed lay within the town of Hampton. I knew that, within our community, there were a disproportionate number of caring, compassionate individuals with a “can do” attitude. And, since then, I have seen a dedicated group of passionate volunteers, backed by the support of many generous Hamptonians, make an amazing positive change in the world helping young girls, grandmothers, and many others in Swaziland. Neighbours helping neighbours; it’s our nature. For information regarding the Hampton-Piggs Peak Partnership, contact me, Mark Bettle, at 832-0003 0010 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
FLOOD 2018 I was asked to write about the recent flood in the Belleisle Bay area and how our community came together. This is one of the easiest articles I have ever had the pleasure of writing. We all knew the Spring flood was coming. It could be worse than last year or even the flood of 2008, still not as bad as the flood of ’73. And the water rose and kept rising. We quickly realized we were in trouble and that a number of cottage and residences were going to be affected, not to mention our roads. Social Media is a wonderful invention, when used for the right purpose. Our community facebook page, “Belleisle Valley – What’s Going on?”, became our lifeline & the lifeline of seasonal property owners who needed to know about their cottage. We started posting videos and pictures as the water continued to rise and homes were affected. Neighbors were checking on each other, providing meals, helping to move furniture to higher ground & sandbagging homes. Those who had to leave their home were offered places to stay within the community. It wasn’t long some areas couldn’t access a way out because of flood waters over the road. Trucks were able to pass through the water but cars could not. Constant words of encouragement, update(s) on road conditions and closures were put on our facebook page. A special church service was held as well as a pot luck supper. When it was no longer safe to try to exit through the water and someone was able to travel outside the affected area, they brought back groceries, mail & medication for neighbors. And if you could travel outside the affected area, our alternate routes were single lane, full of potholes, rocks and in many places not passable without a 4X4 or larger SUV. As road barricades went up and trucks could no longer go through the water, we resorted to tractor(s) or boats. There were incidents of medical emergencies where the patient was taken out by a 4 wheeler or the BVFD Rescue Vehicle. As the water began to recede the cleanup began. Area churches organized a Flood Supper and clean-up equipment has been donated for use from Easy Kleen Pressure Systems and Hertz Equipment. The communities of Belleisle Valley took care of each other. We feel truly blessed no one was hurt at the same time realizing others suffered more than we did. 4978 Submitted by Janice Bates.
