“VOICES” There have been many voices raised against the recent forestry agreement by the government of NB to surrender even more of OUR Crown Land to the big forest companies. The argument by both government and industry is that we need to devastate our forests in order to create jobs in order to keep young people working here at home. However, like many overbearing parents, they have failed to ask these young adults whether they want to have our forests sacrificed on their behalf!! Last week I came upon an article published in the UNB student publication “Brunswickan” entitled “Merry Christmas, Mr Irving” written by Richard Kemick. Here are some excerpts. “The Irving family is the thirteenthlargest landowner in the world, beating Ted Turner and Sheik Hamad Bin Khalifa of Qatar. Furthermore, the twelve landowners that place ahead of the Irvings are all either monarchs or the Pope––who is obviously the monarch of our souls. While I, along with the majority of New Brunswickers, do not think too highly of Premiere Alward’s powers of deduction, the fact that the Irvings own our entire province and the fact that our province is largely populated by underemployed or unemployed citizens seems too coincidental to ignore.” “This province couldn’t have more cartoonishly evil environmental policies if they tried.” “Having a vibrant and unique ecosystem allows for the establishment of the financially lucrative industry of tourism, an industry that regenerates a lot faster than hardwood. However, because of this province’s dismal environmental record, New Brunswick’s largest tourism draw is coming to watch the annual migration of the majestic twenty-somethings fleeing the province.” Read the whole article at: thebruns.ca/ merry-christmas-mr-irving. It was great to discover how at least one young voice thought of this whole ugly affair, many thanks!!! My personal preference is to simplify the whole matter and even take the science out of the debate, because there are only two clear and simple facts that are not even debatable.

1. Crown land legally belongs to the people of New Brunswick and is managed on their behalf by the government. Documents from the government state: “Crown lands are managed in the best interest of the people of New Brunswick.” Seems pretty clear. 2. “Public Views on Forest Management in New Brunswick: Report from a Provincial Survey” carried out in 2007 by DNR by three local university professors (website:2.gnb.ca/content/ dam/gnb/Departments/nr-rn/pdf/en/ ForestsCrownLands/ForestSurvey.pdf ) While there is a lot of info there are two key points: a) The residents of New Brunswick want their forests to be managed for many values besides as a source of fibre. b) Residents rate 8 other groups and organizations that should have greater influence than the forest companies in managing our forests. Conclusion: The Government is abusing the trust and wishes of it’s residents and legal action should be taken to regain control of our forests. 0001

ASK THE CHEF MERINGUE Colin Sifton here again from Holly’s Restaurant and Catering with another answer to your question. One of my first articles was on pie crust and how to pre-bake the crust without it changing shape. From this, I received a question on meringue and how to keep it from shrinking and weeping? Making meringue goes back to the mid 1600’s where both the French and the Swiss take credit for its invention. Meringue is made by beating egg whites until very stiff and adding sugar. The secret to a good meringue comes from three different factors. Your egg whites need to be very clean; no yolk, no shell and a very clean dry bowl. If your egg whites have any bacteria, you will not get a stiff peak egg. Next you add sugar until you get the consistency you require. Different sugars will produce different meringues. The more sugar you add the harder your meringue will be. You can stabilize your meringue by adding some acid. Most cooks will use cream of tartar

by Colin Sifton

but you can use vinegar. Meringue comes mainly in three different forms. French meringue, which most of us know from the top of the lemon meringue pie and simplest to make. This is the one described above. Italian meringue which is made with boiling sugar syrup instead of caster sugar. This gives a more stable soft meringue and found on such desserts as Baked Alaska and on lemon pie as well. This is the hardest meringue to perfect because your sugar temperature needs to be exact and if you add it too quickly it will cook your eggs. The third is a swiss meringue which is made over a double boiler until almost marshmallowy. They are baked in the oven and this gives the meringue a harder shell. This would be a meringue used in Pavlova. To keep your meringue from shrinking inwards, try to make sure you attach the meringue to the crust. This will hold it enough while you cook to brown your meringue when making a pie. As far as weeping or the sweating of meringue this is next to impossible to prevent. Weeping

is caused by moisture either in your pie or the humidity in your refrigerator. One of the controlling factors in preventing weeping is how much sugar you use. Not enough sugar will cause weeping as the sugars are inadequately dissolved in the egg. So you now have three different methods of making meringue. Play around with each of them to find the one that best works for you because that is the fun in baking; trying new things and methods to come up with our own version of a classic recipe. 0040

HAMPTON HURRICANES BRING HOME SILVER After winning the Provincial Jr. C title for the second year in a row, the Hampton Hurricanes were off to Liverpool, Nova Scotia to defend their Maritime Hockey North Championship. After a record of 2–1–1 in round robin play, the Hurricanes would again face off against Hockey North, represented by the Kivalliq Canucks in the semi-final, the same team they tied 2–2 in the round robin. This had to be the game of the tournament. It became a goaltenders nightmare, with both teams firing 50 shots at each others net in a wide open, fast paced game. Hampton managed to score the extra goal for a 6–5 win to move on to the Championship Final. In the Championship Game on Sunday afternoon the Hurricanes were up against the Nova Scotia Champions, the Spryfield Silver/Black Attack, who would notch an empty net goal for a 3–1 win to secure the Atlantic title. Besides being able to defend the title and return home with the silver medal, two Hurricanes were named as First Line All Stars, goaltender Matthew Ingraham, for the second year in a row and forward

KENNEBECASIS REGIONAL POLICE NEWS Elder Abuse can happen to anyone regardless of age or gender. It is also something that is extremely troubling and most people are unclear about what it is. In many cases of Elder Abuse, the abuser is usually someone the senior knows and trusts. This may include a spouse or family member, friends, or caregivers. The abuse may be a result of stress in the family, poor family relations, history of violence, alcohol or drug dependency, financial trouble, or a caregiver who is overwhelmed. Often the abuser will attempt to isolate the victim from other members of their family who may detect and report the abuse. There are many forms of Elder Abuse: Physical - any act of violence or rough treatment that causes injury or discomfort; Psychological - yelling, criticizing, threatening, or humiliating the senior; Chemical Abuse - misuse of medication, includes withholding medication or over-medicating; Sexual

Abuse - unwanted sexual contact; Financial Abuse - misuse of the senior’s money or property; Neglect - does not provide proper care (withholds food, health services, clothing, hygiene care). Some seniors do not report the abuse because they are embarrassed or too frail or ill to properly communicate. Some seniors feel that reporting the abuse or neglect will only make things worse and they fear retribution. No one should have to endure or tolerate abuse. Anyone can help a victim of abuse or neglect by contacting their local police department. An investigation will be launched immediately and the police will help assist the victim. Police can also contact other departments or refer the seniors and their family to other community programs designed to assist in these types of situations. Tips for Preventing Elder Abuse: Keep close ties with relatives; Learn to recognize the signs of abuse or neglect; -Discuss any concerns you may have with others. Keeping silent only encourages the abuse to continue. Speak up! Cst. Krystal Daley, Community Relations Officer. 0031

GET FRESH WITH FOOD GETTING TO THE ROOT OF IT! According to Stats Canada, it is the 3rd leading cause of death for Canadian men. Almost 24,000 a year. Turmeric is a powerful force against prostate cancer. It’s a wonderful root, that we typically eat in powder form. Turmeric is one of the most medicinally packed foods I have read about. According to whfoods.org, it is also effective against Rheumatoid Arthritis, Cystic Fibrosis, high cholesterol and the prevention of Alzheimer's Disease. "In numerous studies, curcumin's [Turmeric Root] antiinflammatory effects have been shown to be comparable to the potent drugs hydrocortisone and phenylbutazone as well as anti-inflammatory agents such as Motrin." WOW!!! For many of you, turmeric is not as strange as you might think. It is an ingredient in every curry powder. Also, the active ingredient in turmeric is curcumin, which is often prescribed in pill form to patients

who suffer from arthritis. However, the most powerful source is straight from the fresh root. I am certainly not telling you to ignore what your doctor prescribes, but foods as medicinal as turmeric should be consumed as often as possible. Incredibly, as outlined by sources on whfoods.org, in 2005, curcurmin was featured in a study that compared it to the chemotherapy drug, Taxol. Mice were given human breast cancer directly into their lungs and separated into four groups (I know it is horrible, I am not endorsing animal cruelty). The first test group received no treatment as a control group. One test group received just Taxol, another test group received just curcurmin and the fourth received both Taxol and curcurmin. After five weeks, 95% of the control group had developed lung cancer, which is not surprising since they received no treatment. 75% of the group that received Taxol developed lung tumours, despite the powerful chemo drug. However, 50% of the curcurmin group had fought off the cancer and of the group that received both curcurmin

by Dave Wolpin

and taxol, only 22% had any evidence of lung cancer. This means that curcumin alone, was more than twice as effective as the chemo drug and the two treatments combined compounded their efficacy. I know you are thinking, but Dave, how do I use it in my cooking? My favourite way is in a tea. I take a finger of turmeric and rinse it off. I cut it into chunks that will fit in my garlic press. I squeeze the turmeric through into a mug, one chunk at a time, cleaning out the bits of peel as I go. Then I add a couple spoons of honey to the mug and generously shake in some cloves, nutmeg and Ceylon cinnamon. Finally, I add some hot water, stir it all up and drink it. I also love to add turmeric to my juices, soups, stir fries and anywhere you'd normally use ginger. As you'd expect, Kredl's sells organic fresh and ground turmeric. 0039

More than 4,000 years old, the labyrinth has left its trace in virtually every culture and spiritual tradition world-wide - the Cretan (classical seven circuit), medieval (classical 11 circuit), the Kabbala, the Hopi Medicine Wheel and Tibetan sand paintings are all examples of labyrinths. In recent times, the labyrinth has reemerged, appearing in parks, hospitals, recreation centers and even people’s backyards and is being used as a grounding tool to calm the mind, open the heart, and promote health and wellbeing. A non-denominational walking meditation, how it works is not fully understood. Following the singular circuitous path, as it meanders into the center in a clockwise motion and moves out from the center counter clockwise, is thought to quiet the mind by suspending linear thought, allowing the imagination, memory and intuition to work together — much like guided imagery. Come learn about the labyrinth at one of the three Talks & Walks: Friday, April 18 from 6:00-7: 30pm; Saturday, April 19 from 10:00am-11:30am 1:00-2:30pm at InterAction School of Performing Arts,

288 Germain Street, Saint John. Construction Workshop: Saturday, April 19 from 2:45-6:45pm at the same location. No prior knowledge or experience is necessary for attendance. Cost of the Talks & Walks - $20 (each session); Construction Workshop - $30, or attend one Talk & Walk plus the Construction Workshop for $40. Please bring your own water and brown bag snack (if required) to the Construction Workshop. To pre-register, please email Wendy Moore at wd.moore@rogers.com or call 646-8188; if you leave a message, we will return your call. Payment will be collected at the door.

LOCAL PEEWEE GIRLS’ HOCKEY Female hockey in the KV had a breakout season this year, led by the Peewee Vipers team coached by George Georgoudis. The Vipers captured first place in the PeeWee A division year-long standings, and captured three tournament banners over the season. The first banner was won at the Hampton Christmas tournament versus the Saint John Mighty Chicks, but the season was capped off by victories at the Southern New Brunswick Female Hockey League Day of Champions against the Carleton Mighty Chicks; and then last weekend with a victory at the Provincial female Peewee A championship game against their year-long rivals the KV Kobras. KV female hockey overall had a breakout season this year, with the PeeWee level showing an increase from 19 to 30 skaters in one year, and both teams leapfrogging over our neighbouring associations into the 'A' division. Both Peewee teams advanced into the finals at provincials all in three short years of development. 2735 L-R: Sohrab Lutchmedial (coach); Julia Lloyd; Olivia Scott; Meaghan Nouwens; Abi Verner; Tom White (coach); Emily Nauss; Allie White; Aly Scholten; Miriam Lutchmedial (G); Jeff Reid (coach); Madison Graves; Sophie Irving; Madeline Aldridge; Emily McCormack; Jill Irving (coach); Abby Scholten; Kate Palmer; Diggy Khaled Abdalnaby (G); Sophia Georgoudis; Rachel Reid; George Georgoudis (coach).

The Christian celebration of Easter marks the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. So where does the Easter Bunny come from and why do we sometimes celebrate Easter in March and sometimes in April. Because Easter is what is known as a movable feast. It is celebrated on the first Sunday after the full moon following the March Equinox. This means that the date can vary anywhere from March 22 until April 25. Many other Christian celebrations also move around the calendar in relation to the celebration of Easter.

So, where did the egg laying rabbit come from? Rabbits and eggs have traditionally been tied to spring as symbols of fertility and rebirth celebrated by many religions around the world. The first mention of an Easter Bunny came from the Germans in the 1600s as The Oschter Haws (Easter Hare). A bunny who laid coloured eggs who would give them as gifts to good children. The Pennsylvania Dutch brought the tradition to the new world and fast forward 400 years and we have our modern Easter bunny who brings chocolates and small toys to children for Easter.

It was in 1950 that the Easter Bunny adopted the name, Peter Cottontail. Steve Nelson and Jack Rollins wrote the song “Here Comes Peter Cottontail”, Gene Autry sang it and it peaked at number 3 on the charts. Gene Autry is also the man behind the songs “Here Comes Santa Claus” & “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer”. The first mention of Peter Cottontail came from Thornton Burgess whose fictional bunny, Peter Rabbit, changed his name for a short period. The name Peter Cottontail has been associated with the Easter Bunny ever since. The coloured eggs that the Easter Bunny delivered were dyed red (the color of blood to represent Christ’s sacrifice) & green, to represent spring. Eggs were originally dyed by boiling them in water with flower petals, but nowadays we can use special kits, food colouring, or fruit-drink powders. HAPPY EASTER

LISTEN IN by Jeff Liberty Growing up on the family farm I enjoyed a steady diet of daydreaming, clean living and Canadian country music compliments of our families vinyl, cassette and 8-track collection. Fond memories included watching the musical variety shows the “Family Brown Country” on CJOH television in Ottawa and of course, The Tommy Hunter show on CBC. Canada’s first lady of Country music, Carroll Baker, was one of his frequent guests and a mainstay on our record player in the house. Baker even had her own series on CBC in the early 80’s. Carroll Baker is making her return to Saint John at the Imperial Theatre on April 29, much too many area country music lovers’ joy! I sent her off some questions on how she was discovered and other things I had on my mind. Here is that interview! “I was discovered by George Petralia at a Jamboree near Markham Ontario in 1969. I don't recall the exact date as I never was one for fine details. Anyway, I used to go there to do this Jamboree on

Sundays, and George Petralia was there and approached me a few times about the possibility of making a record. I kept insisting I was not interested in making a record, but he was relentless. One evening, I thought I'm not sure about this guy, maybe I should tell him to go and talk to my husband. When he went to meet up with my husband John, I was approached by his wife Rasty, and she was an absolute wonderful lady so I thought hey, if he has a lovely wife like this he must be an okay guy. “Listen In” - It's been a long time since you were last in Saint John to perform! What could a new fan going to see a Carroll Baker show expect? “I am so looking forward to returning to Saint John. It has been many, many years since I last did a show there. I had been advised that my ticket sales would not be great there and that I should perhaps skip Saint John, and then we found out there were no weekend dates available at The imperial Theatre, it was looking pretty dark for the date. I really wanted to return so we went ahead and booked

a Tuesday night, not the best day for a concert. When I saw ticket sales were slower in Saint John than any of my other concerts, I certainly was disappointed, but there was no way I wanted to have the show cancelled due to lack of ticket sales. We would just have to find a way to make it work. My husband took over the date and we were on the hook for the loss if that was to happen. It would be great to get a sell out so I could let the others know that all is well in Saint John with Country Music. However, if I don't sell out, the show will not be any different than any other show I do. The show is called Thanks For The Memories and I want to thank my fans in the area for their support. They will get the best show I can give them. Each person who is at that show deserves no less. I want them all to know. “I am 65”, "Still" alive, and "Singing" Live. I will prove it at the concert!!!” 0041

Up, Up & Away by Ellen Tucker ZIP ACROSS THE EMERALD ISLE IN STYLE Our strong Irish heritage makes anyone with Irish blood wish to visit Ireland, with good reason! It’s beautifu accommodations suit every taste and budget, the cuisine is creative, and a warm welcome awaits you. Until recently, the journey was awkward, with no non-stop flights from Canada. You drove to Boston or connected through London. It’s not non-stop from NB, but a Westjet flight from St. John’s, NL is popular and connections are possible from Halifax. Once in Ireland, you’ll be surprised by the choices in accommodation and transportation. Here are a few options: Coach tours: These range from budget to 5-star; from a few days to a few weeks; to every nook and cranny of the Emerald Isle. Tour operators provide a choice of large coaches, or intimate ones. Self-drive: You’ll adjust easily to driving on the left. Except in major cities, there’s little traffic, and you can stop when you

please. Many packages include vouchers for hotels or B&Bs, to book as you go. If you prefer, you can hire an experienced driver/guide - a great way to learn Irish history, customs and traditions. By rail: Yes, there are trains in Ireland! Irish Rail (Iarnród Éireann) fans out from Dublin to all major centers. In the countryside you can take a GoCar, a partnership with Irish Rail, for a combination of main line plus flexibility for onward travel. GoCar is a ‘members only’ car-sharing service, renting cars and vans by the hour, or the kilometre. Vehicles are available around Dublin, Cork, and 14 other stations in the Iarnród Éireann network. Also Rail Tours Ireland does a full range of day and multi-day tours. A caravan: Now that’s different! Before trains and cars, Irish nomads moved by horse-drawn caravans. Like a modern camper, they served as transport by day, and lodging by night. You can step back in time and experience the old tradition. For one or more nights, up to four people can travel, cook and sleep in a caravan,

meander slowly along country roads, chatting at farms and pubs along the way.

CHURCH CHART Lord, Our Lord, Your Glorious Name Lord, our Lord, your glorious name All your wondrous works proclaim; In the heavens with radiant signs Evermore your glory shines. Infant voices chant your praise, Telling of your glorious ways; Weakest means work out your will, mighty enemies to still. Moon and stars in shining height Nightly tell their Maker’s might; When I view the heavens afar, Then I know how small we are. Who are we that we should share In your love and tender care, Raised to an exalted height, Crowned with honour in your sight. With dominion crowned, we stand O’er the creatures of your hand; All to us subjection yield, In the sea and air and field.

“He saith to the snow, Be thou on the earth. Job 37:6” God’s works are very great, but still His hands do not appear: Though heaven and earth obey His will, His voice we cannot hear. And yet we know that it is He Who moves and governs all, Who stills the raging of the sea, And makes the showers fall. Alike in mercy He bestows The sunshine and the rain; That which is best for us He knows, And we must not complain. Whether He makes His winds to blow, And gives His tempests birth, Or sends His frost, or bids the snow, “Be thou upon the earth.”

VOLUNTEER BREAKFAST AT KWCC Volunteer breakfast Volunteers are an integral part of any not-for-profit organization. We recently celebrated our Volunteers at Kings Way Care Centre with a delicious pancake breakfast and all the fixings. The atmosphere was jovial and fun with our Leadership Team flipping pancakes while making everyone feel welcome and appreciated. Volunteering brings together a diverse range of people with varied backgrounds. Our most junior volunteer started with us when she was in Grade 5 - Julia Hope has given us many hours of dedication in the two years she has been coming in after school, on weekends and for special events such as the Family Fun Day. In addition, our most senior volunteer is in her eighties and enjoys many visits in a week. It takes a community to raise children and also to enhance the lives of elders who were once active participants in our society. We thank you for all that you do and the smile and love you bring to our homes.

Albert Schyf, with CEO Judy Lane, has given over 1,000 hours of his time to benefit our home and residents. If you like to have fun, socialize, bake, read, do crafts, garden or enjoy participating in events in the

MUSINGS by Debbie Hickey SNOW BUNNIES AND OTHER SCARY THINGS As Easter approaches and the snow hangs on, I remembered an Easter when the kids were young and they went out with their father to build a large snow Easter bunny instead of a snowman. It was out on the front lawn and was truly a thing of beauty. Well. . . to everyone but our dog. At that time we had a lovely golden retriever by the name of Sassy. If you are not familiar with the breed, picture a long haired yellow lab and you will be close enough. But it was a good thing she was beautiful and kind and gentle, because she sure wasn’t very smart. For whatever reason, Sassy had been in the house with me while the bunny construction was going on. When I let her out with me to go view the masterpiece, she raced around the corner to join the kids on the lawn, stopped dead upon sighting the snow bunny and gave a pretty good bark. When the bunny didn’t run, she did!

There was another time Michael had gotten a new truck. . . well, at least new to him. He has owned a brand new tractor, but never a brand new truck. Go figure. . . at any rate, once again let Sassy out of the house, dead stop at the sight of the new truck parked in the yard where the old truck normally sat, one bark and she was outta there! But she wasn’t always a “scaredy cat” dog. There was the time I and the kids came downstairs on a Sunday morning to have breakfast, I opened the door between the porch and the kitchen to let the dog out and discovered Sassy stretched out on the porch mat with a buddy. The buddy was a young man whom I did not recognize, and he did not stir. I promptly sent one of the kids back upstairs to get Micheal (thinking perhaps he knew the individual sound asleep in our porch), and meanwhile I let the dog out for her

morning run. The fellow did not stir until we were finishing up our breakfast, at which time he blearily insisted he knew the people in this house. Seems someone had dropped him off at the ferry and he was hoofing it to a friend’s house. Thought he was there, but obviously he was not. Sassy seemed quite content to have company on her mat, but Mike insists that had the fellow attempted to steal the silver she would have been all over him! “You can say any fool thing to a dog and the dog will just give you this look that says, 'My GOSH, you're RIGHT! I NEVER would've thought of that!” ~ Dave Barry. 0002
