RAVINGS By Mike Hickey


With thousands of readers, there has to be at least two people who are interested in tractor articles. So I need just one person besides myself and we are good to go!! The workhorse of my small tractor fleet, is my second oldest, but at 32 years old, it is still going strong and is my go-to tractor for the heavy work. It’s the one that ventures off of the woods road to blaze new trails and to haul out wood. It is also the only tractor that has the space to carry the many items needed for the hard jobs. My chainsaw sits in a case out on one rear fender, while an axe sits inside the cabin beside my seat. Outside on the loader, I have a bracket to hold my peavey for moving logs or trees around if needed. Until I find a logging winch or wench, I have a 20 plus foot hunk of chain hanging off brackets on the other side of the loader. Also hanging off the loader are lopping shears for trimming branches (instead of using chainsaw), a two-ton manual winch for hauling me (hopefully) out of places I shouldn’t have been, and a shovel (for self burial if nothing else works)!! Inside the cab, I have a hard hat with face shield, that I should use but never do, two or three pairs of gloves, a small maul-like hammer (protection from coyotes and angry wife), numerous bolts and pins, tools and a fairly short eight foot chain, along with gas and chain oil for my chainsaw. The tractor started out life weighing a little over 4,000 lbs but now weighs somewhere in the vicinity of 120,000 lbs and can barely move (just kidding)!! It is amazing, when I think about it. With all of the problems in the world both near and far, why would I write about a tractor?? Well for one thing, tractors aren’t depressing!! One of the great things about our publications is that with possibly a rare exception, all of the news is positive. And believe me, that can be very hard to find today. While there is nothing wrong with getting the “real” news on life, a continuous barrage of bad news is depressing and so people begin to feel hopeless about the future and that there is nothing that can be done. Fortunately, our publications are just loaded with people and organizations being very busy trying to solve at least some of the world’s problems and believe me, that is a good thing. Change almost never occurs out of depression, but rather hope and inspiration. 800

The evening of Relay starts at 5:30pm with a banquet and guest speaker for cancer survivors. This is followed by the Survivors’ Victory Lap at 7:00pm.

The Luminary ceremony is one of the most touching, beautiful ceremonies that you will ever witness, so please come out and enjoy this evening with us.

But every time a crop is harvested, it takes nutrients from the soil that must be replaced. Potash, and other essential crop nutrients are responsible for half the world’s food production, helping farmers produce higher yield crops that are stronger, healthier and more abundant. Potash is the food, for the food we need. To learn more about the benefits of potash and how it’s helping power a well-fed future, visit us at

Why is Sussex called The short answer For more than a century, Sussex and area has been producing the most milk in the Maritimes. The Sussex region was producing most of Atlantic Canada's milk when the town was incorporated in 1904. Local businessman Hugh McMonagle is credited with importing some of the best dairy cattle to the region in the mid 1800s. This lead to its reputation as the Dairy Center of the Maritimes. The Sussex area is home to 1/3 of New Brunswick's dairy farmers today.

Consuming dairy products as part of a nutrient-rich diet is important for individuals of all ages. Dairy products have many nutrients and vitamins essential to good health. Calcium, protein, phosphorus, potassium, and supplemented vitamins A and D are all nutrients the body needs. Calcium, for example, is necessary to build and maintain strong bones. Osteoporosis, a condition wherein the bones weaken and are more susceptible to injury, can affect anyone, but it is

particularly common among women age 50 and older. The National Institutes of Health say as many as half of all women and a quarter of men older than 50 will break a bone due to osteoporosis. To keep bones strong, health professionals recommend eating a diet rich in calcium and vitamin D -- both of which are found in dairy products. Eating low-fat dairy products can reduce a person's risk of developing cancer. Studies have shown that populations that eat a high amount of calcium-rich foods have a lower incidence of colorectal cancer. According to child health authority Dr. Sears, calcium controls the multiplication of epithelial cells lining the colon. Fast multiplication of these cells increases a person's risk of developing cancer. The best sources of calcium include bony fish and dairy products like yogurt. Dairy products, especially milk, are also essential for different health benefits. Drinking milk helps protect the enamel surface of teeth against acidic substances. This helps prevent tooth decay and weakening enamel. Milk and other dairy products might also help maintain healthy skin.

Dairy also plays a role in digestive health. Consumption of milk products may help in reducing acidity in the stomach. Yogurts with active cultures have been known to promote healthy digestion and alleviate occasional irregularity. Individuals with lactose intolerance, a food sensitivity where there are inadequate levels of lactose in the body necessary to break down the lactose sugar in dairy products, may avoid dairy foods. However, information from the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board says that those with a lactose intolerance can still handle at least two cups of milk a day if taken with food and spread throughout the day. Research also indicates that consuming small amounts of lactose-containing foods may improve lactose tolerance over time. Your Hometown Team 1HĹżEG /CKP5VTGGV5WUUGZ YYYRNGCUCPVXCNNG[EQO

MULCH TIME AGAIN Mulch sales abound at this time of year and along with them the hints from most garden centers and landscape bods that the product will render your garden instantly weed free and practically work free. Be not fooled! Quite frankly, working in my garden gives me great joy and a freshly weeded bed provides a lot more satisfaction than a newly scrubbed kitchen floor ever could! Certainly the mulch has a killing effect when laid at about a three inch depth however it’s prudent to bear in mind that what can kill the undesirables can also wipe out the treasures. If your lifestyle dictates the use of mulch, care needs to be taken with the application; a space of at least six inches around the plant or bush, should be left where compost mixed with some well rotted manure can be applied, this insures that there’s enough nourishment for the plant to survive since the mulch will take a lot of nutrients from the soil as it decomposes. Mulch should always be applied after a soaking rain in order to trap the moisture in the soil. I use heavy mulch on pathways and actually recycle the large plastic bags on the surface covered with layers of newspapers and topped of with the mulch, weeds just don’t stand a chance! Sadly this method is not suitable elsewhere in the garden. With advancing years the plastic bagged type is infinitely more manageable than the great truck loads that I have used in the past By not using mulch on the flower beds there is better opportunity for plants to expand and a greater likelihood of those wonderful volunteer plants, blown in by the wind or dropped from the heavens by passing aviators; they are always great fun and often provide treasures that could wreck the budget at the local nurseries. This is a great time of year to clean out ponds and care needs to be taken to preserve the wild life in them; a collection of water snails is a valuable asset to keeping things ship shape, so it’s best to lift the leaves with a small plastic rake and sit them down on the surround of the pond, giving suitable time for the livestock to return. Every pond gets overgrown with time and the plant life needs to be reduced to a point where at least 1/3 of the pond is open water. I have just completed that task in a very small pond and was rewarded with the sight of a Yard Sale! pair of mallard ducks taking Every Thursday stock of the accommodations! So much good stuff in life is and Saturday free and it seems to me that 9am-2pm the major benefits of hands 230 Old Post Rd. on gardening are the pure joy of hearing the birds sing and Petitcodiac watching plant life come into Around Back, bloom after the bleakness of New Items Weekly! winter. Celebrate the good stuff! 805

MUSINGS By Debbie Hickey


As odd it seems to me, it has been 40 years since my high school graduation. It does not seem possible, but a simple subtraction confirms the truth of it: 2012-1972 = 40 years! Yikes. What was happening way back then? Pierre Elliot Trudeau was prime minister, Richard Nixon was the president of the United States (Watergate was a couple of years down the road), and Richard Hatfield was premier of New Brunswick (and so was the Bricklin). A new house cost in the $25,000 - $30,000 range. Gas was 36 cents a gallon (which would be approximately 8 cents per liter except we weren’t using the metric system then). New Brunswick officially became Canada’s only bilingual province - and removed “The Picture Province” from our license plates. The number one movie of the year was The Godfather, the number one song was Don McLean’s American Pie and All in the Family was the number one TV show (yes, we did have television then). M.A.S.H. premiered in 1972. For sports fans, that was year Paul Henderson scored the “goal of the century” in the Canada vs Soviet Union hockey Summit series. It was also the year 11 Israeli athletes were killed in the Munich Summer Olympics terrorist attack. In the midst of all that, a grand total of 38 Grade 12 students at Hampton High School approached graduation. Amazingly when we sat down to plan a 40th reunion, with one or two exceptions we know where all 38 are today or can find out fairly easily. One of the benefits of a small community. So we will get together for an evening to catch up a little and brag about our grandkids and maybe rekindle some of that youthful energy and anticipation of what life had in store for us as we looked ahead at age 18. Age is just a number. “True terror is to wake up one morning and discover that your high school class is running the country.” ~ Kurt Vonnegut. 801
