THE CRAYON BOX Education & Open Dialog For this week’s column, I sat down with two members of the Progressive Conservative Party, Gary Crosman (Hampton) and Bruce Northrup (Sussex-Fundy-St. Martins). Mr. Crosman started out by telling me about his father, a WWII Veteran who was a member of the legion for 60 years. His father told him to stay in school at a time when many were dropping out early and also instilled a good work ethic in him. Mr. Crosman became a politician because he wanted to give back to the community, while Mr. Northrup originally had no interest in politics. However, he was eventually convinced to run in the 2006 election. Mr. Crosman, who has taught for 32 years, spent a lot of our time talking about the education system. He advocates for meeting the needs of the individual and giving all students opportunities to succeed. He says that the school system does not have the resources available to cater to all students, only some. He thinks that children who want to try the trades should be able to properly experience them. He feels that young children shouldn’t be held back a grade, as it ruins their social life, something more important to their development than the curriculum. Mr. Northrup stressed the importance of keeping the local people here and creating opportunities for the youth. He says he wants to see the potash/ salt mine reopened and also wants to lift the moratorium on drilling for natural gas regionally, but not for the whole province. He feels as though we have enough rules and regulations to ensure that the drilling is done correctly and in a way that won’t destroy the environment. On healthcare, Mr. Crosman noted the importance of nurse-practitioners and felt as thought we should pay more attention to them and what they could do for our system. Mr. Northrup wants to ask the doctors for opinions on how to improve the healthcare system, which he views at vital. As he points out, “if you don’t have your health, you don’t have very much.” When asked about the perception

that politicians don’t always keep their promises, both candidates told me that they have ever only made one campaign promise each. Mr. Northrup’s was about something he knew was going to happen the very next day, while Mr. Crosman says he always promises to voice people’s concerns and to do the best he can. They both said that you shouldn’t make promises you can’t keep. They also both expressed that politicians should work as a team, and that the party in power should keep an open dialogue and listen to the opposition, which is something they feel doesn’t happen enough. Finally, I asked the politicians what advice they would give to the youth. Mr. Crosman says that they should work hard and remember that the loudest voice doesn’t always speak for the majority. Mr. Northrup noted that education is very important, and advised that people get a good one. He says that people should try new things, and if they fail, try again. We have added another two blue crayons to our Crayon Box. Turns out, according to studies, blue is the most popular favourite colour, which might explain why most people seem to pick it. 0011

SELF ESTEEM PAIN-FREE OR FREE TO BE YOU If you could live for ten years in total bliss, pain free, but not remember any of it, would you? I'm guessing many of you would answer with a resounding, Yes. Trials, errors and losses are all very painful. But let's stop and think about this for a moment… immediate gratification is fleeting. It does not teach you anything and it certainly does not help you grow as a person. True happiness comes from gaining insight and growing into your best self. In this pain-free scenario, you are numbing yourself, blocking yourself from the natural flow of life. This natural flow brings with it empowering insights and lessons that help you grow into who you were meant to be. I've known my fair share of pain; we all have. Pain can be a profound teacher that directs us on the path of transformation. Often our reluctance to accept lessons from pain is influenced by our desire to avoid sorrow, distress, frustration

and suffering. Understandably, we prefer almost anything to that kind of pain. Nevertheless, the joy always outweigh the risks. The memories of a lost loved one, success after failure, and learning from our mistakes are all things that bring growth. In turn, bringing us closer to being our truest self. In today's society there are many ways to dull the pain. However, the sad thing is by not allowing ourselves to feel pain, we may no longer feel the joy we once knew either. We must realize that both pain and joy are natural responses to life as it is. There are growing pains that come from learning through our mistakes; for to learn from them means we must honestly acknowledge them. Losing a loved one must be the largest heartbreak of all. Trying to move on without them can be debilitating. But our memories carry us through. Life throws a lot at us and yet, we are still here to tell the tale. We are not perfect. We are vulnerable. It hurts to be

realistic, or wait when patience is required. So, if I could live ten years in total bliss-pain-free-but not remember any of it, would I? No. I am willing to remain vulnerable to those painful realities that come with facing the truth about me (imperfect as I am), with learning, growing, loving, and trying to become who I was meant to be. Pain helps me remember that I am only human and I am in contact with life as it is meant to be experienced, thus becoming my deepest motivation to keep on living… in pain and joy. 0027

It’s no surprise that technology is becoming increasingly popular, especially with advancements almost daily. According to the Nature Conservancy, 66% of youth between the ages 13-18 have a greater appreciation for nature due to personal experiences. The Kennebecasis Watershed Restoration Committee (KWRC) sponsored by the Atlantic Salmon Conservation Foundation, the New Brunswick Trust Fund, the Environmental Trust Fund and Sussex Fish and Game are providing youth (ages 6-14) an opportunity to learn a new hobby, gain personal experience and become engaged with nature during our Free Youth Angling Day Camp on Thursday, July 12. But angling isn’t a hobby only for youth, so the KWRC and their sponsors would like to provide a Free Beginner Fly Fishing Workshop during the evenings of June 27 and June 28. The first evening will be a classroom session while the second evening is on the water and includes a BBQ and Prizes. The workshop is a great opportunity for the community to learn how to fly fish, tips for fly fishing, and to meet other people interested in the sport. The KWRC undertook these workshops as a way to encourage people to enjoy the local rivers and streams. It was important

to teach people how to fly fish when the Department of Energy and Resource Development incorporated “Catch and Release” and “Fly Fishing Only” sections on the river. As of July 1st, only fly fishing will be allowed from the Malone Covered Bridge at the Upper Goshen Road down to the bridge on Bloomfield Station Road. The Catch and release section of the river is also fly fishing only for the entire angling season and it runs from the McCully Station Road Bridge up to Ketchum’s Brook near Portage Vale. With these restrictions in place the KWRC felt it important to give the community an opportunity to learn how to fly fish. The KWRC encourages all anglers to enter the data of their catch on their online Creel Survey. The survey takes less than a minute to complete and provides the KWRC with helpful data on fish species abundance to help anglers get the most out of their fishing experience! Information and registration forms for each event as well as the creel survey can be found on the KWRC website homepage. Come get your line wet. 5004

Canada’s reputation as an all around amazing country is applauded world-wide, so this Canada Day, get out into the community and take part in celebrating the birthday of this incredible Country, our “True North, strong and Free”.

EXERCISE FOR HEALTH STOP EXERCISING Stop exercising? Well my first question would be why? Some people get bored or think they will walk or they’re too old etc, excuses are just that excuses. Choosing to not do weight bearing exercises will result in you losing strength and stamina. Going for a good brisk walk is a wonderful form

of exercising but it will not give the endless health benefits that good strong muscles will give you.

You will be surprised how quickly muscles can lose their strength, when you stop exercising your muscles will begin to weaken probably within two weeks. Muscles will realize that they will not be called upon so they will no longer store glycogen and will become smaller. Taking the summer off really has no benefits for your body, taking a few days off can recharge you taking a couple months off means you have to start all over again. Sometimes when you get out of the habit of doing something it is lost and the commitment you once had is gone. It takes twenty one days to make or break a habit. Enjoy your summer and participate in the things that are only available to us during the few warm weeks that we have. I would recommend that you keep up with your weight training it only takes three days a week for one half hour to maintain what you have built up. Do you really want to start over again in the fall? Put your own health high on the list of priorities that you’ve made for yourself. Physical activity is the best prescription and you get to write it yourself. Some studies have shown that yoyo exercising can cause you to gain weight and keep it on. The sudden exertion you use when working out strenuously for a short time causes your body to actually burn less calories, similar to starvation mode when you do not eat enough. Once you get to a place where you are happy with the results you have achieved it does not take a lot to maintain what you have. Keep the habit going challenge yourself once in a while Moderate exercising frequently is more successful in keeping a person healthy and the easiest way to maintain good numbers on the scales. 0046

TENDING TO MY PATCH GROWING VEGETABLES IN CONTAINERS The simplest answer is; virtually any type of vegetable or herb should fair well in a container as long as it has enough room, proper drainage and nutrients. There are also 'mini' varieties of vegetables that have been specifically bred to do well in small spaces and look attractive. They need a sunny space. An advantage with vegetables grown in containers is that you can move the containers around to follow the sun and seasons if necessary. Growing vegetables in containers allows easy access for the following reasons: easy access to the kitchen; handy or safer environments, especially for children; better protection from unwanted attention of various pests; easy for the less mobile and the handicapped. An outdoor potted vegetable garden is usually extremely attractive and serves the dual purpose of style and function around your patio. The following list of basic tips applies to most vegetables, and will help you and

your plants get off to a good start. Sun - most vegetables need full sun – that means at least six hours of direct sunlight a day. Water – growing vegetables need water - lots of it. Proper watering may be the single most important and hardest part of vegetable container gardening. Heat – if the container will be placed in a really hot zone you may have to shade your plants in the middle of the day in order not to fry them. Always make sure to harden off your plants before you put them outside. Growing Median/Soil quality potting soil is really important for vegetables. Fertilizer - plants need food to thrive, and their food is fertilizer. If your soil doesn’t have fertilizer already mixed in, you’ll want to add fertilizer. Drainage - drainage is key to keep plants from drowning. You want your pot or container to let excess water out of the bottom, so your plants won't sit in water or soggy soil. Containers – choosing a container can be daunting. You can use almost anything for

PALS Sussex is celebrating its 24th year of incredible success stories, and we could not have done it without the amazing support that this community has offered us. We would like to take a moment to extend a huge thank you to the folks who are helping make such a difference in the lives of teenagers here in Sussex. To Tim Horton’s, the Sharing Club, and Agathe Klingenberg: Thank You for your food donations that have helped keep our students full and happy every day. Thank you to the Sussex Wesleyan Church for sponsoring our monthly

birthday celebrations, taking the time to serve our students themselves with cake and ice cream. Thank you to the Atlantic Community Church for renovating our building last spring, giving it a fresh, new look and helping us achieve the kind of warm, inviting environment where the students feel welcome. We also want to thank our hardworking partners, Lori-Ann Lauridsen, Rachel Bennett, and Marcy Gillies, as well as the rest of the Sussex Regional High School staff for their continued support, efforts, and encouragement. The progress here at

a garden planter as long as it is big enough and has good drainage. Keep in mind though, that the larger your container, the easier it will be to maintain. The more soil a container can hold the more moisture it will retain. Bigger, really is better here. Seeds or Seedlings – you can start your veggies from seed or buy seedlings. There are some significant advantages and disadvantages to each. Starting your own seeds is much less expensive than buying seedlings, after some startup costs. If you start your own seeds you can grow hard to find varieties and can also grow your seedlings 0034 organically.

PALS would not be possible without you. Together, we may be two sites, but we are ONE school with a shared goal to see as many high school students walk across the stage with their diploma as possible. Finally, we want to congratulate Bridgette Boisvert, one of our 19 graduates this year, on being selected as our TurnAround Achievement Award recipient. Throughout her time at PALS, Bridgette displayed tremendous growth and a newfound devotion to her education. Teacher, Brittany Tremblett, was thrilled to celebrate her at the award ceremony in Quispamsis on Monday, May 28. We are proud of you, Bridgette, and cannot wait to see what you accomplish next. Lastly, Thank You, Sussex, for being such a wonderful community to be a part of. We are so grateful for the opportunity we have here at PALS to serve and support our future generations, and to give them a new perspective on their life. This year we had 55 students walk through our doors and we are already looking forward to working with more amazing students next year! To all of our students this year: have a fantastic summer, and as Paul always says, make wise choices! 4995 June 19th - July 2nd, 2018

DIRECTOR’S NOTES START OF SUMMER EDITION Imperial Theatre has officially launched Season 25! Subscriptions are open to buy from now until July 4. To buy one of these dandy Subscriptions you just call Box Office directly at 674-4100. They are open Monday-Friday, 10:00am5:00pm and four hours before shows. Why buy a Subscription you ask? I am pleased you asked: subscribers get cheaper tickets; they get first crack at the best seats. they get to include one or two SNB, SJTC or Nutcracker tickets in their buy; they get an annual Season Launch Invitation; they get notified about new shows; six-pack subs get advance access to new shows and specials; six-Pack Subs get surprise promos and freebies all season. I don’t usually like to be so forward about selling tickets but I am so excited about this season I cannot help myself. We have got so many cool shows and so much great music.

We’ve got ballet and street dance, magic and a Master of the Impossible. We’ve got Burlesque and Jazz, Golden Girls (in puppet form), Cathy Jones and an International Man of Misery (Jeremy Hotz). We’ve got Steven Page and Tomato Tomato and huge country star Brett Kissel. That’s not even all! We have more Christmas that anyone could shake a stick at. We even have Zombies (Evil Dead The Musical) and God (comedy show God is a Scottish Drag Queen). And that doesn’t even include all the other great music and theatre! Finding three to six shows that you want to see and becoming a Subscriber is easier than it has ever been. And if you are just not up for ticket commitment single tickets go on sale July 5, except - Evil Dead The Musical and Brett Kissel are on sale now! With that said let’s get down to summer plans. We are planning

installation of a new marquee. That’s the thingie on the front of building that shows what event is in the theatre. We are still sporting the one that was installed twenty-five years ago when we went through our restoration. A new marquee means that we won’t have to send a staff member up a ladder in blizzards and rainstorms to update it; we’ll have the ability to program from the inside. This may not seem like a huge deal to you but it certainly is to Adam (our current marquee changer). We’re all pretty happy for Adam. Besides a new marquee we’ll be putting final touches on next season, which starts in September and hopefully enjoying some nice summer weather. Cheers to warm days and cold drinks, B. @ Imperial. 0030 Bethany Stout

Human Rights Banner This year marks the 70th anniversary of the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. If you go to you will find ways that individuals and organizations around the world are marking this milestone. Here in Hampton, The Hampton John Peters Humphrey Foundation decided to create a visual reminder about respect for human rights. We have done this by the creation of banners that now hang on a number of the

Town’s light poles in the centre of our town. The banners have a distinct white on black peace dove in the middle, with John Peters Humphrey’s name on top, and the words “Human Rights Champion” on the bottom. Our intent by creating the banners is two-fold. The first is to celebrate that the Declaration still symbolizes the power of ideas to change the world and it inspires us to continue working to ensure all people can gain freedom, equality and dignity. The banners

are a visual reminder of the power of the Declaration seventy years later. The second is to celebrate that the person who wrote the first draft of the Declaration, was a Hampton, New Brunswick native son. John Peters Humphrey (depicted as a child and as a man in sculpture form in front of the old Court House building) was born in Hampton and upon his death requested that he be buried here, which he is. His education and his career took him to a teaching position at McGill University. From there he was recruited to New York by Eleanor Roosevelt to work on the creation of a document that would become the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The Hampton John Peters Humphrey Foundation exists to honor the legacy of this great Canadian and to educate about human rights. Please visit our website at to find out some of the ways we do this. If you have questions or comments about the foundation, please give us a call at 832-5881 (Georgie Day, Chair) We welcome hearing from you. 4985 June 19th - July 2nd, 2018
