Well, let’s see what is going on!! I have a couple of loads of wood that I cut over the winter, while doing some thinning, that is now all cut and split. I have also been out this spring doing a bit more thinning and patch cutting. I am going to take it easy though until we get a woodlot management plan in place, because that will help set the priorities in terms of what should be done first. For those individuals who own woodlots and want to take some proactive measures to improve the quality and quantity of wood that is growing, there are remarkably inexpensive services available by joining a local wood co-op. For those who just want to sit on their property and let mother nature do her thing, that is fine also, just consider protecting the property through land trusts or easements that will stop future owners from clear cutting what has taken many, many years to develop. Thanks to the dry spells we have had this spring, I have gotten out to do some more work on my woods road. Unfortunately, after just one heavy rain it takes about a week for it to dry out and useable again. My biggest hope, is that before winter, I will have all of the ditching done so that it should only take a fairly short time to dry out and be usable after a heavy downpour. Back in the woods, we are scouting along the roadside for desirable small trees such as spruce, pine and some cedar, and replanting them in areas that are exclusively fir and/or birch. In just a hundred or so short years, the forest makeup of trees should be significantly better. Every time I walk by my dead hemlock remains, I wonder if there is such a thing as “Tree CPR”. If there is, I suspect that the time for which it might work is long past. Oh Sigh!! Outside of the woods, we are doing a bit more landscaping and planting, but nothing major so far. The grand-grand kids are both very cute and lovable, the missus is still annoying and The Jet seems to be following in her foot steps. (Maybe more later.) On the lighter side: 1. Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak 2. He who laughs last, thinks the slowest. 3. Change is inevitable, except from a vending machine. 4. Those who live by the sword get shot by those who don’t. 5. Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool. 800

HMS News: Excitement for Semi!

by Claire McCormick It’s almost here! The end of the year, and the Grade 8 Semi Formal! The excitement is building for the end-of-the-year dance every Hampton Middle School kid lives for! If you have never heard of the Semi Formal dance, it is a dinner and dance for the graduating Grade 8 students and an end-of-the-year dance for Grades 6 and 7 students. The dinner is only for the eighth graders and is when they receive their awards for the year. If you have ever been to HMS’s Semi Formal you have seen the magnificent dresses, hair and shoes people wear. It’s all part of the dance, and I have to say, it’s my favourite part. Along with this, it’s the most romantic dance of the year with boys bringing their dates’ corsages and the dance floor filled with couples slow dancing at every slow song. Of course with Semi being one of the happiest dances of the year, it is also, by far, the most emotional, especially for the graduating Grade 8 students. They won’t be coming back next year, like the other grades. It’s the last time they will get to see familiar faces, classrooms, halls and lockers so, for them, it’s almost like a good-bye dance. To sum up, the end of the year is almost here, and so is Semi. It’s a fun, enjoyable and emotional ride for both teachers and students alike. Claire McCormick is a Grade 8 student at HMS. 114

Peninsula Pearls news

The Peninsula Pearls held their regular meeting on March 26th at the Moss Glen Legion. Guest speaker was Holly Reid, from Brenan’s Funeral Home, who spoke to us about funeral planning. If you plan ahead the cost of the funeral will not go up. Cremation is cheaper than a funeral with a casket, however everyone is not in favour of cremation. Lunch was delicious and was served by Group 1. The 50/50 was won by Jean, door prizes by Joanne, Sheila and Audrey. Due to Easter Monday, our Easter meeting was held on April 16th with a pot luck and our Easter Bonnet Parade; what a great selection of decorated Easter Hats!

Hampton Herald - May 15, 2012




After the life giving rains that we were blessed with in late April the gardens are off to a rollicking start and the plant outlets are bursting with an amazing variety of perennial plants. All very exciting and enticing but, be warned! Most of these will have been raised in an unheated but protective, covered environment. This means care has to be taken to harden them off, an extra cool night or blustery wind could easily destroy them; the best method is to expose them to the elements on days that are fairly cloudy, still and mild, increasing the time spent outside a little each day until they become sturdy. Care needs to be taken to insure that they don’t dry out or become waterlogged by too much juice! Avoid purchasing annuals no matter how attractive the price, there will be a possibility of frost until after the full moon on June 4th. Keeping them healthy for a prolonged period can be time consuming, it’s better to wait a couple of weeks and concentrate on the many gardening jobs that need attention. Chief among these is the spring pruning, by now the rose bushes have leafed out and pruning out the dead wood while the leaves are small is easy to do without damaging the bushes. All dead wood should be trimmed back to the first really healthy leaf buds, making sure that the pruners are sharp; a ragged cut is an invitation to the pests that cause disease. The Forsythia has finished its spectacular display and a pruning with an eye on the overall shape that you would like to see is in order. One great virtue of them is, that a new plant can be produced simply by taking a low growing branch and burying it into the ground with a small rock on top to anchor it, by the end of summer it will have rooted and can be planted in a new location. Deer are again on the rampage and favorite among the early diners are the day lilies. Any smelly concoction will help to ward them off, 1 to 9 parts ammonia with water and a little added oil and soap; a mixture of beaten egg with powdered milk, oil and soap; granulated garlic with egg, soap and oil. These can be concocted fairly cheaply, best sprayed on a still, dry day at a time when you can bung your clothes into a washing machine and head for the shower. The commercially manufactured ‘Bobbex’ seems to have been quite successful. Good Luck and happy gardening. 805

We're glad You asked! Brock Reid

CREATING MEANINGFUL EVENTS THAT CELEBRATE LIFE! All people can create memorial or funeral services that are meaningful events. You can do so, beginning with the obituary notice, by acknowledging the life of the individual, their values, qualities and accomplishments. For some, the obituary provides the only means they will have to reflect on the life of a family member, friend or colleague. When planning the services, all you need to create a meaningful event is your knowledge of the person: special things they did, things they loved, and shared memories. A few examples might help, a family of one woman brought in many vases of flowers from her gardens where she spent many hours. Another woman, whose husband had died, put together a picture board that displayed photographs of him taken at different stages in his life from childhood to a recent vacation they had taken. It made people feel good to see parts of his life that they knew and remembered. Our Funeral Directors can help you plan an event that captures the spirit of the person, and brings meaning to everyone who attends.

Hampton-Piggs Peak News

Perhaps by now some of you have noticed a new sign as you enter Hampton at the intersection of Main Street and William Bell Drive. No, it’s not an election sign although there are plenty of those to be sure. If you happened to look over top of them you would have seen The Hampton-Piggs Peak Partnership logo has been added to the Welcome to Hampton sign. By the time this goes to print, the election will be over and the “vote for” signs should be coming down. But the tangible demonstration of the Town’s bond with its partner community of Piggs Peak, Swaziland will remain. This recognition is a testament to how the Partnership has become ingrained into the unique culture of our town; and sharing the sign with Hampton’s native son, John Peters Humphrey, is a particular honour. As we know, Mr Humphrey drafted the United Nations’ Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The premise he expressed in the Declaration - that all human beings should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood - is a core principle of the Hampton-Piggs Peak Partnership … something we know as “buntfu” or “ubuntu”. One of our original “Starfish” students was a young lady named Nontokozo Dlamini who many of you will remember from her visit to Hampton in the summer of 2008. In her very moving dinner speech in June of that year, Nontokozo made reference to a Hampton “hero”, John Humphrey, who stood for human rights. She identified the lack of human rights – women’s rights – in her country as the leading cause of the record high incidence of HIV/AIDS in Swaziland. “Men do whatever they want to women … he doesn’t use a condom when he doesn’t want to … he just does what he wants to do”. Much of what the Hampton-Piggs Peak Partnership is doing in Piggs Peak is intended to advance greater equality between men and women. Our construction of the modern latrine to replace the women’s pit toilet at Peak Central is a prime example. Like Nontokozo, we believe gender equality is a lynchpin to achieving universal human rights. We would like to think John Humphrey would be proud of what we are doing. We are certainly proud to share a sign with him. On behalf of the Partnership Committee I would like to thank the Mayor and Council of the Town for its cooperation and leadership in erecting the Hampton-Piggs Peak Partnership logo. It is a sign for all to see; a sign that our community acts toward others in the very spirit of brotherhood that John Humphrey mentioned in his seminal dissertation. It is something of which all of Hampton can be proud. 110

Bill and Robyn (Lamont) Linden are proud to announce the birth of their son,

Reese Aeryn Linden, also welcomed by his big sister Jadyn. Born February 23rd, 2012 and weighing 8lbs Proud grandparents; Sharon & Earl Linden (Southfield), Grampy Rick Lamont (Hampton) and Grandma Dianne Robinson (Snider Mountain)


Hampton Herald - May 15, 2012




Bob Nolan’s most famous song, “Tumbling Tumbleweeds”, began as a “poem about the leaves he saw being torn and whirled from the trees during a storm he was watching from his apartment window. But it was himself, not the leaves, being tossed around at the whim of the Depression. No wife, no daughter, no career, no future. He wrote it all in a little poem he called ‘Tumbling Leaves’ and like all his best poetry, it reflected his own philosophy of life. It was a philosophy from which he never veered.

Days may be dreary, still I’m not weary, My heart needs no consoling. At each break of dawn you’ll find that I’ve gone Like old tumbling leaves, I’m rolling. See them tumbling down, Pledging their love to the ground, Lonely but free I’ll be found Drifting along with the tumbling leaves. In time the little poem was revised to give the version of “Tumbling Tumbleweeds” that is known to the public. “The Sons of the Pioneers” (first referred to by that name in the press of January 1934) had the theme song “There’s a Blue Sky Way Up Yonder” as the signature tune of their radio shows; later, “Tumbling Tumbleweeds” became their new theme song. The live studio audiences, as well as those who telephoned in their requests, frequently asked for “Tumbling Weeds” having misheard “tumbling leaves”. Bob Nolan eventually gave in and changed the name of the song and made a slight change in the melody and words. This is how he described the transition: “The song itself, the melody, had different lyrics altogether and it was quite by accident that we thought of Tumbling Tumbleweeds. I didn’t at the time. They kept requesting this Tumbling Weeds song and the song at the time was Tumbling Leaves. I’d say about 7 out of 10 request for the song came in “Tumbling Weeds’ so Harry Hall said, “Why don’t you change the lyrics and make it ‘Tumbling Weeds’? Tumbling Tumbleweeds. Just, eh, same melody except that it didn’t have that tilted note in the latter part.” When speaking of “Tumbling Tumbleweeds” historian Douglas B. Green states unequivocally, “if western music has an anthem, this is it.” This “western anthem” hit the charts of radio transcriptions in December 1934. For this transcription the group recorded 102 songs. In 1935 “The Sons of the Pioneers” and Decca Records signed a contract. It is signed by the then members of the singing group – Vernon H Spencer, Hugh Farr, Len Slye and Bob Nolan. On a doublesided disc (one song on each side) they would receive a two cent royalty; on a one-sided disc containing one song the royalty was half that. When the sheet music was introduced for “Tumbling Tumbleweeds” is was given as “Tumbling Tumble Weeds”; later printing of the sheet music corrected the spelling error. 127

In sad and loving memory of a dear son Stephen Monahan who was so tragically taken from us May 13, 2007. How do I say to a son That I loved as much as you I still cannot believe you're gone, I'm still hoping it isn't true Wishing this heartache was just a dream From which I'd wake up and find, You still here in life with us Or if not somehow we could rewind time Until we one day meet again as a whole family, Loved and Sadly Missed.

Forever Loved and Sadly Missed. Heather, Tony, Kelsey Ashley, Ian & Paityn

In loving memory of a dear brother & uncle, Stephen Monahan, who was so tragically taken from us May 13, 2007.

Good People

A Yiddish Folk Tale An old man sat outside the walls of a great city. When travellers approached, they would ask the old man, “What kind of people live in this city?” The old man would answer, “What kind of people live in the place where you came from?” If the travelers answered, “Only bad people live in the place where we came from,” the old man would reply, “Continue on; you will find only bad people here.” But if the travelers answered, “Good people live in the place where we came from,” then the old man would say, “Enter, for here too, you will find only good people.” CC18

“Have a Heart” fundraiser

It’s time to come together again and help someone in need! Oceans of Ink and the small business’ of Sussex are hosting their 4th annual fundraising event - “Have a Heart” on Saturday, June 2nd starting at 10:00am, and this year the funds are being raised to save the life of young Nathan Beaudoin. Nate’s family needs our help! So this year our fundraiser is for them! As before, we will be offering ribbon tattoos for $40, but this year we will also be offering small heart tattoos, especially for Nate, with 100% of the proceeds going to Nate and his family. Nathan, who has just turned one, has a rare and complex congenital heart condition called Right Atrial Isonmerism/ Heterotaxy. Nate’s only hope of survival is a complex heart surgery that is only offered in Boston. The estimated cost for the surgery is approximately $300,000, which does not include accommodations or travel expenses. But tattoos aren’t the only way we’ll be raising funds. There will be food (walking tacos), live music, art, 50-50 draw, raffles, silent auction, and that’s just at Oceans of Ink! There is a growing list of small business’ in Sussex that are also volunteering to participate in the day. Keep checking the event on facebook (Oceans of Ink Presents: Have a Heart!) for a list of business’ involved, activities and for more information! Our fundraisers in past years have been a huge success, and we’re all really looking forward to it this year! We are looking for volunteers to help us organize serve food, sell tickets and other similar jobs at Oceans of Ink and we are also accepting donations for raffle/silent auction. If you are interested in volunteering, donating or becoming a part of this fundraiser, please contact Cory or Kathy at Oceans of Ink, 4335006 or come see us at 14 Church Ave. Sussex. 835

Hampton Computer Shop has been a part of Hampton’s business community since 2004. It changed hands last April from founder Steve Beyea, to his long time employee Tim Hoyt. Tim received his degree in Electronics Engineering Technology from NBCC Saint John in 2005 and has been here ever since. He brings a wealth of knowledge and an understanding of anything electronic. He is compelled by a childlike enthusiasm for taking things apart, but as his customers will tell you, he’s great at putting them back together again too.


The shop offers most anything computer related. From new and used desk tops, laptops and monitors to new ram, power supplies, and printer paper. We can even beat the big box store Staples ink prices! We carry the most popular brands of printer ink.

Most of our work involves the computer repair facet of the shop. We repair all makes and models of PC and Macs. This includes virus removal, file back-up, reinstallation of operating systems and the physical replacement of broken computer parts. We have recently expanded our repair services to include video game consoles. With the growing popularity of things like Netflix and the ability to now use game consoles to surf the internet on your TV, it just makes sense to offer our customers this service. On site computer repair and installation is another service option we offer our customers. Most businesses we serve, and even some of our residential clients actually find this type of service more convenient. Rest assured though, that whether you come to the shop to see us, or we go to where you are; Tim will be giving you fair and professional service. Tim and his wife Raegan both grew up in the Hampton area and are excited to be running a business and raising their family here. Although Raegan is very busy keeping tabs on their 6 children (who range in age from 2 to 19) she sometimes is the one answering the phone when you call, or greeting you at the door when you come into the shop. She canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t answer your technical questions (unless they pertain to pinterest or facebook) but she takes a mean message, and almost always has a smile on her face! This past year we have had the opportunity to give back financially to the causes, charities, and local schools that both our customers and we care about. We have welcomed some new customers and been congratulated by our old ones. We look forward to the coming years and getting to know more of the special people that call this community home. Hampton Computer shop welcomes you and encourages everyone to buy localâ&#x20AC;Śwe do.

Hampton Purina® Walk for Dog Guides”

On Sunday, May 27th residents of Hampton are participating in the Purina® Walk for Dog Guides to help provide Dog Guides to people with disabilities. The Hampton Walk is taking place at Hampton Town Square with registration opening at 12:00noon and the Walk starting at 1:00pm. Organized by local volunteers, the Purina® Walk for Dog Guides is truly a grassroots event. It provides community members with a fun and meaningful way to positively impact the lives of those living with disabilities locally. The Hampton Walk is one of 250 Walks taking place across the country this spring. To date, more than 1,700 Canadians have received a Dog Guide at no cost because of the dedication of Walk organizers, donors, and participants. One hundred per cent of the funds raised from the event go directly towards the five Dog Guide training programs at Lions Foundation of Canada Dog Guides: Canine Vision, Hearing Ear, Special Skills, Seizure Response, and Autism Assistance. This is all possible thanks to the generous support of the Walk’s title sponsor, Nestlé Purina PetCare, and national sponsors Fido, Twin Pro Graphics, West Jet, hlp+Partners, and Dan’s Pet Shop. This year there are some great new contests and prizes for Walk participants, including two tickets to anywhere West Jet flys and pet food for one year from Nestlé Purina PetCare.

My name is Cheryl Hansen and I am a cancer survivor. I had Hodgkins Disease when I was 14 yrs old and Thyroid Cancer in 2009. It was that year that I decided to participate in the Relay for Life in Hampton by entering a team. My team’s name is “Running Late” and so far we have raised a little over $12,500 for cancer research. My team consists of friends and family, all of whom have been touched by cancer. My two children, Keegan and Brayden, relay with me as well. Their reasoning is that since cancer is everywhere and has affected so many in our family, they want to better their odds of survival by raising money. The main reason I joined the Relay for Life event is because of the Luminary Ceremony. The luminaries are candles that are lit at dusk and remain lit all night. They line the track and each candle has the name of someone honoured as a survivor or remembered in memory of someone who lost their battle to this disease. I am humbled and grateful while I walk around the track and read the names. It gives me the chance to fondly remember those that I lost. Relay also gives me the chance to think about how lucky I am to be a survivor. I celebrate being a Cancer survivor with the many other survivors. After the 12 hours, I won’t worry about how tired, sore, and (hopefully not wet!!) I am; or that I have to pack up my tent, chair and cooler before I can head home on June 10th. Instead I’ll watch the sun come up, hug my children and go get a big breakfast before falling into bed to sleep the day away. We will find comfort in knowing we have made a difference because we decided to fight back. For more information on how to purchase your luminary contact me, Cheryl Hansen at 216-0178 or email: cheryl_ 123

Many a smart vehicle owner is looking to get more bang for their vehicle buck. In lieu of quick trade-ins, more and more vehicle owners are trying to make their purchases last longer. Today's vehicles are designed with long-lasting reliability in mind, making it easier for vehicle owners to get more and more out of their vehicle purchase. To do just that, consider the following tips: Find a repair shop that suits your needs.


Look for a neat, well-organized facility, with vehicles in the parking lot equal in value to your own and modern equipment in the service bays.

105 Robertson Road, Lakeside, NB E5N 7K5 Monday 8 - 5 ~ Saturday 8 - 12

Look for a courteous staff, with a service consultant willing to answer all of your questions.

Drop in or call for appointments 832-1313

Look for policies regarding estimated repair costs, diagnostic fees, guarantees, and acceptable methods of payment.

Hampton Herald - May 15, 2012

Ask if the repair facility specializes or if it usually handles your type of repair work. Look for signs of professionalism in the customer service area, such as civic, community, or customer service awards. Look for evidence of qualified technicians: trade school diplomas, certificates of advanced course work, and certification by ASE. Do the small things to save fuel. The cost of fuel is among the highest costs associated with owning a vehicle.

Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more to it than oil and a filter


1575 Riverview Dr.




Give your engine a break. Cars aren't all that different from the human body in that everything is directly or indirectly connected as a system. Just like a body can overcompensate in one area when another area is injured, a car's engine will be forced to overcompensate when there are deficiencies in other areas. For example, a clogged air filter or fouled spark plug makes combustion less efficient, which reduces power -- and wastes fuel as well. Motorists can give their engine a break by replacing clogged filters, sticking to their vehicle maintenance schedule and routinely checking fluid levels. Check the Motor Oil. Oil change guidelines have changed dramatically thanks to better cars and more reliable motor oils. But it still helps to check motor oil levels after every fill up. If oil is significantly low after each fill up, consult a mechanic just to be safe.


Check your exhaust. Once a year, be it at a routine tune up or should repair work be necessary, ask your mechanic to check the vehicle's emissions. Failing an emissions test might be against the law, and a failed test could be indicative of a larger problem. In addition, inspect the muffler and exhaust pipe for holes, particularly after winter, when debris from snow trucks may do significant damage. Replace any damaged or rusted parts.

Check your Power Steering on a monthly basis. When checking power steering fluid, also inspect the pump for any leaks.

The experts at the nonprofit National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) warn that putting off routine auto maintenance or ignoring service intervals is false economy. Small issues can morph into more expensive repairs. A well-maintained vehicle gets better gasoline mileage, pollutes less, is safer to operate, and lasts longer than one that's neglected.

E NEWS We recently sent out our very first e-newsletter. This is something we have talked about for some time and although the first issue was quite time consuming the response has been positive, with several of our customers even taking the time to email us to tell us so. It is our hope that our advertising customers will find it a useful resource full of all kinds of tips and information, much as we hope these community magazines provide our readers with a whole community of interesting and useful news and events. I sometimes think of just 12 years ago when Mike and I first began Ossekeag Publishing. We took on an office with just three computers, two for creating the publications and one which was hooked up the internet. Most of our editorial came in as hard copy and had to be typed. Ad copy was a hand drawn sketch or occasionally (from companies with a national presence) an “ad mat” that could be scanned. Very little came to us via email. My six year old grand-daughter is always fascinated by how little connection to the bigger world Nana and Grumpy had as kids. I was her age when our family got our first television, with all of one channel and a GREAT test pattern for large parts of the 24-hour day. Interestingly, though, yesterday we watched some of those same cartoons that I saw as a kid . . . thanks to YouTube. Tom & Jerry and Sylvester & Tweety were both big hits. She laughed . . . and then went back a bit to rewatch the funniest section again. Not only was that impossible when I saw them, I also watched them in black and white, a concept completely foreign to her. She is amazed that there was no Dora, no Treehouse and no Barbie. Progress has lots of good in it, but not all change is positive. “The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much it is whether we provide enough for those who have little.” ~ Franklin D. Roosevelt. 801
