And the hunt for Easter eggs is on!

By Steve Jessel

EMC News - A Belleville company will be the first Canadian manufacturer to produce the new T-11 parachute, Prince-Edward Hastings MP Daryl Kramp announced on Tuesday on behalf of Minister of Public Works and Government Services Rona Ambrose. The T-11 parachute will replace the CT-1 parachutes currently in use by the Canadian Armed Forces. “I’m really, really pleased because it isn’t just important for Airborne Systems here,” Kramp said. “Recognize where we are, we are right beside … the air transport capital of Canada, the synergies are absolutely incredible.” The contract, given to Airborne Systems Canada Ltd., provides for the acquisition of 600 T-11 parachutes and required spare components, and is worth an estimated $3.6 million over the next year, until March 31, 2014. Airborne Systems General Manager Charles Matthewson said the total amount of the contract is unmatched by anything the company has received before, and said it will provide direct employment for 13 of the company’s 35 employees. “It’s huge. In fact I don’t really have a lot of similar contracts to compare it to,” Matthewson said. “To get a contract of this size for us is huge, but more importantly the nature of the product, and the fact that

Hotel Quinte coming down By Steve Jessel

EMC News - Belleville - Hotel Quinte is on its way down, as demolition company FItzgibbon Construction Ltd. has received a permit from the city to demolish the remainder of the burned-out husk of the hotel, and commenced demolition on Tuesday, April 2. “The process is, we’ve brought in a spePlease see “Parachute” on page 3 cialized demolition machine from Toronto

to reach the higher portions of the building, and once we get it down to level that we can take over with the smaller equipment,” said Fitzgibbon Construction Ltd. owner and president Greg DeMille. Expected to take roughly four weeks, the demolition and clean-up will likely mean lane closures on Pinnacle Street later in the week as the demolition schedule dictates. As the building is torn down, an effort will be

made to recycle any recoverable materials such as brick and steel, while the remaining materials will be sent to a transfer station. “Anything that we can recycle, we recycle,” DeMille said. Fire was first reported at Hotel Quinte on the morning of December 22, and destroyed much of the hotel’s south section before being contained. The cause of the blaze has yet to be determined.

Secondary School track project on hold By Ray Yurkowski

EMC News - Brighton - The construction of a new track and sports field at East Northumberland Secondary School has been delayed as school board officials scramble to find another contractor to finish the work. Initially forecast for completion for the current school year, the track itself has yet to be installed. In 2009, a committee consisting of school staff, community members, and school board staff was established to raise funds and develop

a scope of work for a new track facility at the school. The work would include a six-lane rubberized asphalt track; lighting; irrigation; drainage and field upgrades. By the end of 2011, Track Quest organizers announced almost $820,000 had been raised for the project in less than two years, which included winning a national contest for a $25,000 community refresh from Kraft Canada and a live broadcast of TSN SportsCentre from Brighton.

The contract was awarded at a school board meeting in November 2011 when facilities services controller Mark Galonski and project architects recommended Terratechnik Environmental, as low bidder ($934,125 plus HST), for the job. But, the company is no longer in business. A call to Terratechnik offices in Mississauga, at the telephone number listed on their web site, was answered by a recorded announcement saying, “This number is no longer in service.” “The bonding company is managing that,”

says Galonski, in an interview on Tuesday. “They’re used to protect the school board in instances like this. It’s part of our contract process. “We use it regularly. It’s a tool used to cover us in cases of default, like has happened here.” “It’ll be built, this is just a wrinkle,” he added. “We would rather have not had to handle this but it’ll get built because a bonding company is engaged now.”

Kramp said the move was significant in that “We had to depend on a company that is not this will be the first time the parachute model only capable, but has a track record of deliver-

ing unbelievably positive results,” Kramp said. “The history of Airborne Systems, it speaks for itself, and we’re very, very confident.” Airborne Systems Canada Ltd. has been in operation for over 85 years, and focuses

on serving the needs of the Canadian military and 60 other countries worldwide. Other products they produce include aerial delivery systems, search and rescue products, engineering services and technical publications. “Airborne Systems is certainly excited to deliver the next generation of troop parachutes for the Canadian Forces,” Matthewson said. “It’s now time to introduce a new parachute that represents the very best in parachute technology to carry our troops safely to the ground during jumping operations.” The T-11 Parachute System is authorized and certified for use on the C-17 (Globemaster), C130J (Hercules) and CH147 (Chinook) aircraft—the primary air mobility transport assets currently in use by the Canadian Armed Forces. “The Harper Government is focused on jobs, growth, and long-term economic prosperity,” said Minister Ambrose in a release. “We are creating and sustaining defence and security industry jobs to help grow the Canadian economy while ensuring that the men and women of the Canadian Armed Forces have the equipment they need to complete their missions both at home and abroad.” Download our APP

Hastings County budget passed

A premier visit to friendly city By Steve Jessel

EMC News - Belleville - The 2013 Hastings County budget was passed with almost no discussion at council on Tuesday, March 26, being approved for $122.9 million, reflecting a 0.89 per cent increase per household from 2012. WIth a 2013 average household assessment of $158,351, this would mean an increase of $4.03 per household from 2012. “From a taxpayer’s point of view, I think that’s pretty commendable,” said Marmora and Lake Reeve Terry Clemens. General government expenses total $4.88

“From a taxpayer’s point of view, I think that’s pretty commendable.” million in 2013 from $4.7 million in 2012, while total revenue stayed roughly the same, at $4.3 million for 2013. The 2013 budget also includes a number of pre-existing commitments, including $1.1 million over 11 years to the Imagine Campaign, $654,000 to the Kingston Hospital Foundation over ten years, and a com-

mitment made in March 2012 to the Loyalist College Sustainable Skills, Technology, and Life Sciences Centre at $50,000 per year. One of the largest increases in 2013 will be a 7.86 per cent increase in funding for Emergency Medical Services (EMS). Total operating expenditures will peak at $14.9 million in 2013, up from $14 million in 2012. The budget increase is because of an enhancement of the service, providing one additional vehicle for 12 hours a day, seven days a week, as well as an additional 2,200 hours in staffing to address the increase in demands of service, which is expected to continue to grow. In 2011, there were a total of 254 hours where ambulance coverage was below acceptable levels. Without the vehicle enhancement, the EMS budget increase would be only 2.12 per cent. “We know we have an aging population,” said finance director Susan Horwood. Total call volume to EMS services raised over five per cent in 2012, with a total of 30,288 calls for service as opposed to 28,642 in 2011. The total kilometres driven by the EMS fleet also reflected this shift, rising over eight per cent to 1,607,386 kilometres driven in 2012.

ties and neighbourhoods with Jane’s Walks on Saturday and Sunday, May 4 and 5. The free and fun walks are named for Toronto urban thinker and activist Jane Jacobs whose 1961 book, The Death and Life of Great American Cities, changed the way people look at cities. A year after Jacobs died at age 89, Jane’s Walks started in Toronto, and the May date honours her birthday. A group of local people, fans of Belleville’s downtown, its farmers’ market, businesses, trails, waterfront and history, have planned three separate Jane’s Walks and are inviting the community to take part. Everyone involved is a volunteer, the walks are free, informal, and will last about an hour and a half. Rain or shine, all three walks will go ahead. With the destruction by fire of the landmark Quinte Hotel this winter and at least two large empty buildings in the core of the city, some think downtown Belleville is at a critical point in its redevelopment. So the first Jane’s Walk, titled Meet Me at the Four Corners, starts Saturday, May 4, at 10:30 a.m. at the corner of Front and Bridge. Led by Orland French, past

and Mail columnist and reporter, the walk will look at downtown Belleville close up. It will stop at alleyways, decaying buildings and vibrant ones, look at graffiti, public art, and mixed use and historic buildings. People who live and work downtown will give short talks about the city they see every day. Walkers are welcome to speak up and share their stories. This walk will end at the farmers’ market. The second Jane’s Walk is an accessible fitness walk behind buildings on the west side of Front Street. Called Back Side for your Backside, the walk and workout will be led by three 20-something Bellevillians: fitness expert Ashton Calnan, Hannah Chittenden, geologist, and Sarah Tummon, BDIA executive director. Meet them at the Four Corners Saturday, May 4, at 10:30 and then head off to Front Street’s back side, along the Moira. On Sunday, May 5, the third Jane’s Walk, titled Down by the Bay, will be led by landscape architect Kevin Tribble, a designer of the city’s widely used Bayshore Trail. The walk will meet at the boat launch at the end of South George Street at 1 p.m. Participants are again invited to tell their own stories about life by the Bay. Jacobs, a New Yorker who moved to Toronto with her family in 1968, wrote and worked in support of neighbourhoods of human scale. She said mixed uses and income levels, as well as lively streets, promote both safety and variety. People take Jane’s Walks to explore their neighbourhoods and meet their neighbours. Since their 2007 beginnings, Jane’s Walks have been held from Guelph to Guadalajara, and in 2012, in 85 cities and 17 countries around the world. (www.

Seniors Centre open for business

EMC News - Belleville - It was a packed house for the grand opening of the Quinte Sports and Wellness Centre Seniors Centre on March 28, and Belleville Recreation Program Supervisor Tanya Grierson said the centre is a great place for those 55 and older to forge new connections and friendships. “The seniors centre is a place to offer programming for the community, a place for people to come out and meet new people, and meet new friends, and socialize and have a place they can call their own,” Grierson said.” Beginning April 2, the seniors centre will aim to offer a wide range of programming for seniors in the community during weekdays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Book clubs, meet and greets, bingo, cribbage, and coffee hours are just a few of the activities that will take place over the coming weeks, and Grierson said the centre is always looking for more activities to add to their roster. As the centre is staffed primarily by volunteers, she said anyone interested in pitching an idea for an activity is always welcome. “We’re always looking for more volunteers to

help fill in the gaps,” Grierson said. The centre is operated by the City of Belleville with additional funding coming from the municipality as well as the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care. The new centre effectively replaces the old seniors centre located in downtown Belleville, and Grierson said the new location inside the Quinte Sports and Wellness Centre is ideal thanks to the wealth of activities on-site. For a full calendar of events at the seniors centre, visit <> and navigate to the Quinte Sports and Wellness Centre section.

“The goal of the fair is to get seniors here, and seeing what’s available for them in their community.”

Alongside the opening of the seniors centre ran the second Seniors Showcase Information Fair, where 70 vendors were on hand for local seniors to browse their products and services. After the first fair drew more than 400 people in 2012, the second rendition had already drawn 300 people by the halfway point of the event, prompting Grierson to call the event an overall success. “The goal of the fair is to get seniors here, and seeing what’s available for them in their community,” Grierson said. “A lot of seniors might not get out a whole lot, but if they come and see that there’s a lot available for them that maybe will encourage them to be more active.”

Vendors ranged from health and wellness organizations to retirement services and community agencies, and in talking to Heart and Stroke Foundation member Stacey Bibby it was clear there were benefits for both seniors and vendors in such an event. “We are out here just trying to get a presence in the community, and let all of our seniors know that Heart and Stroke is here for them,” Bibby said. “What’s nice about this is that they have access to a lot of different organizations in one location, as opposed to having to travel all over the city … so I think being a part of that has been absolutely wonderful for us.”

“There’s so many other amenities here too; it’s a one stop-shop,” Grierson said. “They can go do their aqua fitness class, and then come down and listen to a seminar, whatever they would like.”

A War in Korea?

EMC Editorial - The U.S.-South Korean military exercises will continue until the end of this month, and the North Korean threats to do something terrible if they do not stop grow more hysterical by the day. Last week the Great Successor, Kim Jong-un, was shown signing a decree that ordered North Korea’s long-range missile forces to be ready to launch against the United States, while senior military officers looked on Gwynne Dyer approvingly. On the wall behind Kim was a map, helpfully labelled “US Mainland Strike Plan,” that showed the missile trajectories from North Korea to Hawaii, Los Angeles, Washington DC, and Austin, Texas. (Why Austin? Doesn’t he like indie rock?) It was a scene straight out of the villain’s lair in an early James Bond movie, except that they’d forgotten to set it in a cave. These threats are so palpably empty that the instinct of both the Pentagon and the U.S. State Department is just to ignore them. North Korea has no operational missile that can reach even western Alaska, no miniaturised nuclear warhead to put on such a missile, and no long-range targeting capability. But the politics of the situation demands that the U.S. government respond seriously to every threat, however foolish. So next year the U.S. government will spend another billion dollars or so to place 14 more anti-ballistic missile sites in Alaska, presumably to protect the Alaskan west coast and the Aleutian Islands from a North Korean nuclear strike. And last Friday it sent two B-2 bombers all the way from Missouri non-stop to drop bombs on some uninhabited islands near North Korea, just to remind Pyongyang that it can. It’s all still just a charade, a spring display of military capacities by two rival armed forces that could as well be rutting deer. The United States would not even play this game if the logic of both international and domestic politics did not oblige it to respond to the increasingly rabid North Korean threats. But it is playing nevertheless, and the risk of miscalculation is quite serious. Anybody who tells you he KNOWS what is going on inside the North Korean regime is a liar, but there are a few safe assumptions. Real decision-making power on war and peace almost certainly lies with the senior ranks of the North Korean army, not with young Mr. Kim or the Communist Party. It’s also clear that Kim, new to power and insecure, feels the need to look tough, just as his father did when he inherited the

leadership from Kim’s grandfather. And nobody in the North Korean regime knows how things work in the rest of the world. They may even be genuinely afraid that the U.S.-South Korean military exercises, although they have been held annually for decades, are this time only a cover for a plan to attack North Korea. After all, the regime’s founder, Kim Il-sung, concentrated his forces under cover of military exercises in just that way when he invaded South Korea in 1950. The North Korean military doubtless understand that they must not get into a nuclear war with the United States, but they may believe that their dozen or so nuclear weapons make it safe for them to use conventional force without facing American nuclear retaliation. And they do have rather a lot of conventional military force at their disposal. Kim Jong-un’s threats are being exposed as bluffs almost daily—the U.S.-South Korean military exercises go on as though he had said nothing—and he may ultimately feel obliged to DO something to restore his credibility. It would probably be just a limited local attack somewhere, but in the current atmosphere, with both Seoul and Washington determined not to submit to psychological blackmail, that could escalate rapidly to full-scale conventional war. It would be a major war, for although North Korea’s weapons are mostly last-generation, that is not such a big handicap in ground warfare as it is in the air or at sea. North Korean troops are well-trained, and there are over a million of them. Moreover, South Korea is compelled to defend well forward because holding on to Seoul, only 50 kilometres (30 miles) from the frontier, is a political imperative. That makes it quite vulnerable to breakthroughs. The North Koreans would attack south in a three-pronged thrust, accompanied by Special Forces operations deep in South Korean territory, just as they did in 1950. The geography gives them few alternatives. U.S.-South Korean strategy would also echo 1950-51: contain the North Korean attack as close to the border as possible, and then counter-attack up the west coast on an axis heading north through Kaesong to Pyongyang. That would once again be accompanied by a big amphibious landing well behind the North Korean front, this time probably at Wonsan on North Korea’s east coast. Even if the North Korean air force were effectively destroyed in the first couple of days, as it probably would be, this would be a highly mobile, hard-fought land war in densely populated territory involving high casualties and massive destruction. The world has not seen such a war for more than fifty years now. We really don’t need to see it again.


Keep genetically modified alfalfa out Dear Editor, The National Farmers Union in Ontario has called for a national day of action for April 9, 2013, to stop the commercial release of genetically modified (GM) alfalfa. < issues/stop-genetically-modified-alfalfa>. Alfalfa (commonly harvested as hay) is a high-protein forage fed to animals like dairy cows, beef cattle, lambs, poultry and pigs. It‘s also used to build nutrients and organic matter in the soil, making it particularly important for organic farming. If it’s introduced, GM alfalfa will ruin export markets for alfalfa products, contaminate family farms, make it more difficult for farmers to control weeds, and threaten the future of organic food and farming in Canada.

nate with non-GM and organic alfalfa. Prairie farmers have already rejected GM alfalfa for these reasons so now the industry is trying to introduce GM alfalfa in Eastern Canada. I am one of many Canadians trying to eat healthier by supporting farmers’ markets, trying to grow more of my own food and buying organic produce and products. While I live in Toronto, I support Canadian farmers who don’t want GM alfalfa or other GM crops on their fields. Consider visiting the web link above or visiting <www.> to find out more about why you should be concerned about GM alfalfa and other GM crops. It would be appreciated if you would consider writing your MP and Minister Gerry Ritz, at <>, regarding this important issue to Canadian agriculture.  Todd Buhrows, Toronto

EMC Editorial - Hey Doctor Who*, you might want to have that phone box of yours looked at. We landed with a thud last Saturday night. If we’d known Doctor Who’s spaceship, the Tardis, wasn’t working quite up to snuff we may have thought twice about hitching a ride travelling through both time and space. Dazed and confused, my wife and I had totally lost track of reality by the time we returned from a month-long trip to Australia and New Zealand. We’re still not quite sure what day it is. There is a bit of a time difference for sure from one side of the globe to the other. We just didn’t realize a day might last 36 hours. I’ve been through a couple of long Tuesdays putting the paper together but nothing like this one. Because we’d spent most of the Australian leg of our trip in the hot, humid north of the country, our sleeping schedule had shifted to a 5:30 a.m. wakeup to take advantage of the cooler part of the day with a 9:30 bedtime after long days of hiking here and there. When we arrived in Sydney to fly home, our eyes once again opened at daybreak despite the fact that we didn’t fly out until 3:20 p.m. later that day, Saturday, March 30. So we dogged it in the hotel room until the cleaning crew arrived to kick us out and we headed to the airport. Our twelve-and-a-halfhour flight landed in San Francisco and we parked it again for a five-hour layover until our flight departed at 3:20 p.m. on Saturday, March 30. Hmmm … I could have sworn that’s when we flew out of Sydney. This leg of the journey was a welcome relief as it was only a little over five hours to Toronto but we landed at 11:15 p.m. Something was definitely wrong with this picture. The amazing part of time travel is that it sometimes takes longer to get to your destination than it does to get back. Three days to Australia and one day to get home. But once you get to this particular country, you’d be hard-pressed to wipe the smile from your face. Aussies seem to move around a lot and they take their distinctive regional accents with them. Talk to five different people in the course of an hour and you’d be hard-pressed to find two who sound the same. Some farmers have cultured British sounding accents. Some city dwellers sound like Crocodile Dundee. And some … well, the words, “Could you please repeat that,” will flow freely from your lips. You can hear the UK influence hiding in the background (tomato/tomaato) but Aussies have their own sneaky way of pronunciation too. They love to pull letters out of words, put them in their pockets and use them later in a different words, again Brit-like, but with a more pronounced Aussie flavour. We flew into Cairns, a city one would think would be pronounced maybe like “Carens” but this isn’t the case. Most often you’ll hear it pronounced Cans and the clever Aussies will use those extra letters later on, a day later, a week later, they don’t care as long as they get used up sometime. Waste not, want not. Sometimes, they might even give a spare letter to a friend. We were watching television one night and a commercial came on, “For all your motorbike needs, come to Cans Yamahar. Located just south of the motorway in beautiful downtown Cans.” (Pronounced this time with a third of an “r”, the rest to be used later.) In the next sentence the brand name Yamaha was pronounced without the (r) at the end meaning of course that the announcer had run short. Would an Aussie mind an itinerant Canadian traveller who proudly scored 100 per cent on every Grade 2 phonics test making fun of him?  “Crikey, mate, I’d laugh me arse off,” he’d say. Aussies love a good joke and would probably be on the floor, if you pointed up at the billboard promoting, Learn English in Australia. And we can’t really crow too much about our superior English considering many of us frequently travel to “Trawna.” And that missing “i” from the name Cairns. It turned up a week later on a shuttle to Brisbane or should I say Brisbun. Someone a few seats back on the bus said the word “aluminium.” *If you’ve never seen it, Doctor Who is probably the longest running British sci-fi television show in history starting back in the sixties.

Rolly, your ignorance is showing once again Dear Editor, Rolly Ethier’s letter to the editor “Mulcair loses his loyalty in Washington” is demonstrative of someone who a) revels in their own ignorance, or b) makes Fox or Sun News their primary source. Mr. Ethier, you discredit your opinion immediately when you say Mulcair joined “his other Marxist comrades in the Obama administration.” I really wish people would read their history before they make such inane references. Thomas Mulcair is not a Marxist and neither is Obama. When people say such things they sound ridiculous.

Also, you obviously failed to understand Mulcair’s position. He made it quite clear that his primary opposition to the pipeline is the fact that it’s needed at all. Why should Canada ship raw bitumen to the U.S. for processing when we can establish a processing facility here? It makes a lot of economic sense. A pipeline shipping raw products south is cheap and easy—and realizes returns immediately. A refinery is initially more costly, but guarantees permanent jobs and a long-term boost to the economy. What Mulcair was saying in Washington is that Harper is NOT serving the economy

by pushing for a pipeline instead of at-home processing. Mulcair even went so far as to reference Quebec’s legislation which makes it illegal to ship out raw logs. Why? Because if they’re processed first, you have more Quebecois employed, you’re boosting the industry itself, you’re creating wealth at home and selling a completed product. It was the perfect example to highlight what he sees as “throwing money away” if you ship raw materials, which is true. Read up on economics; too bad Harper hasn’t. Unfortunately, misinformation is rife today,

Politicians are displaying utter insensitivity Dear Editor, It has been demonstrated that, after two or three terms in office Canadian governments tend to completely lose touch with the electorate and their high-handed actions become too much for the voters and they are relegated to the Opposition, or worse! That scenario is even more evident with the current Conservative government and we can only hope that we remember this at the next election. Stephen Harper along with his Conservative government, stooped to new lows last week, first when the PM flew to Toronto in comfort and at our expense, to enjoy a photo-op with some cute pandas, rather than staying in Ottawa to meet with young native Canadians who had trekked thousands of kilometres through severe wintry weather to bring their plight to the attention of our government and other citizens.  Foisting these young people off on a minister, who I am sure can make the case that he is not responsible that native children receive about $5,000 per capita less in education funding than our kids, is reprehensible. 

The PM obviously doesn’t expect their votes to count as much as kow-towing to the Chinese government by receiving the pandas as if they were heads of state. Did he think that we would be so overjoyed to see the pandas that we would forget the perilous state of our economy, the lawbreakers and scofflaws in our Senate and also those who were in his caucus? Not to mention the mismanagement, procuring the F35 aircraft and naval vessels for example, the secrecy and lack of transparency, the abuse of power by chopping or removing funding for institutions, like the CBC and KAIROS, that question or do not meet his political agenda. With these in mind, the utter gall and shortsightedness of this government in withdrawing from the UN Anti-Desertification Project on the grounds that it is inefficient and too bureaucratic is unbelievable; another example of Mr. Harper’s anti-Kyoto, anti-global warming and ironically anti-conservation policies. The Canadian people have lost prestige all over the world since the Conservatives came into power

and this will only exacerbate this unhappy situation. Here we have a government spending hundreds of millions of dollars in their self-serving, sickening “Action Plan” ads. Yet they cut back a measly $350,000 which is at least doing something to relieve a global problem.  And they give our nation another big black eye in the process.  The same thing happened when they denied landing rights to Emirate Airlines and then had to lose face in the Middle East and pack up our staging base at a huge and ongoing cost. The rumblings within the Conservative caucus also exposed how much our political system has been subverted and that individual MPs are no longer free to represent their constituents freely, but instead are forced to toe a party line, administered from the PMO’s office.  Perhaps that explains those expensive newsletters put forth by Mr. Norlock … full of sound and fury, signifying nothing. Iain Henderson, Brighton

like the kind that allows Marxism to be in anyway associated with the NDP. What this means is that vigilance is necessary to combat the ignorance I see, hear and read every single day. If you truly believed Thomas Mulcair was in Washington “losing his loyalty” to Canada, Rolly, I can’t even imagine how you frame Harper’s asserted and wide-ranging attempts at limiting basic democratic rights and freedoms in this nation. When it comes to loyalty to Canadian values and ideals, who should we really be questioning? Darren Moore, Belleville

Tweed parents shame their community Dear Editor, The brawl among parents at a Bantam C playoff game on Sunday, March 24, between the Tweed Hawks and the Six Nation Hawks in Tweed can only be described as disgusting. These parents have not only embarrassed themselves, they have embarrassed their communities, the game of hockey and worst of all their children. Each and every one involved in this disgusting display should hang their heads in shame. Spencer H. Peacock, Marmora

ary School who worked in partnership with Habitat to raise money for their second build. Members of 424 Squadron were also on hand as partners who contributed 175 hours of manpower with a team of 25 air crew, maintainers and SARtechs. Chair Bonnie Dobson introduced Lisa Gorrell as Master of Ceremonies for the dedication. Lisa is principal at St. Paul Secondary. “I am a very proud principal,” Gorrell said smiling. She said the students knew what work would be involved in the project and were 100 per cent supportive. They also got support from the city which donated the land. A dedication and blessing of the house was given by St. Peter’s parish priest Tim Harrison. “This is a beacon of hope for this family and others,” he said. Mayor John Williams noted this is one of the nicest lots for a Habitat home. He said there has been great spirit in the school that worked together to make it happen. John Brisbois from the Algonquin Lakeshore Catholic District School Board said this is a very big event. He encouraged people to continue supporting Habitat projects through attending a Funfest at the Trenton Knights of Columbus Hall on April 20. “It will help them build more,” he said. The dedication included a presentation of a Bible and a CMHC Homeowners manual to Melissa. A ribbon cutting was followed by a tour of the home and refreshments. A list of contributors is posted outside the house.

Long-term-care home wait lists now online The Seasons Experience

EMC News - Hastings County Families seeking information about long-term-care home wait lists can now access a monthly report on the South East Community Care Access Centre (CCAC) public web site to help them make informed decisions. The report includes the number of individuals on the wait list for each level of accommodation within a home and the average number of beds that become available in each home. “Choosing a long-term-care home is a major decision for individuals and their families,” said Jacqueline Redmond, CEO of the South East CCAC. “There is a lot of interest in long-term care and we are pleased to be able to provide this information to the public. It’s important that people have access to good information to help choose the home that is right for them.” Over the past 12 months the South East CCAC has helped an average of 135 people access a long-term-care home each month. There are a number of things that can affect how long an individual will wait for a long-term-care accommodation. For example, preferred accommodation such as a private or semi-private accommodation will have a shorter wait time, but they cost more. How long you wait also depends on the size of the waiting list in each home and the urgency of your need. You can choose up to five homes, in order of preference. The more urgent your need, the more choices you will be encouraged to make. If you move to a home that is not your first choice, you may stay on the waiting list for your first choice. There are 36 long-term-care homes throughout southeastern Ontario. Some

homes are privately owned and some are non-profit homes operated by municipalities or charitable organizations. All homes are licensed and inspected by the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care. The standards of care are governed by provincial legislation and each home is accountable for the quality of care, programs and services it provides. “We are pleased to work with our long-term-care home partners to make this information readily accessible,” said Redmond. “The report will be updated on the South East CCAC web site on the 15th of each month.” To view the report, go to <www.> and you will see a link on the home page. For Hastings County the list includes AON Inc. Moira Place, Belmont, Caressant Care, Crown Ridge Place, E. J. McQuigge Lodge, Hastings Centennial Manor (Bancroft), Hastings Manor, Stirling Manor, Trent Valley Lodge and Westgate Lodge. In Belleville, Hastings Manor has 253 beds on the list for basic accommodation, with 157 on a waiting list for those beds with approximately 610 days average waiting time. There are also 46 beds for semi-private with 374 on the waiting list and 62 in private with 467 on that waiting list. There are also homes in other counties in the southeast CCAC area. There is one home in Frontenac, four in Grenville, five in Kingston, three in Lanark, three in Leeds, five in Lennox and Addington, one in Northumberland (Maplewood) and four in Prince Edward County (H. J. McFarland, Hallowell House, Kentwood Park and West Lake Terrace).

QHC says lab tests “misunderstood” By Jack Evans

EMC News - Trenton - An outburst from the Trenton community about loss of laboratory services at Trenton Memorial Hospital is a “misunderstanding,” CEO Mary Clare Egberts told the March meeting of the Quinte Health Care Board Tuesday. The move was one of many the hospital is implementing to seek to reduce a proposed massive deficit of around $10 million for next year. While confirming that the lab would be closed, she explained that the same service would be replaced by new technology “point of care” lab analysis. That technology, she noted, has been used “for years” in both Picton and Bancroft hospitals, not only saving many thousands of dollars but reducing wait times for results from 30 to 60 minutes to around two minutes. Medical staff representative Dr. Norma Charriere noted staff must be assured that the

new tests are as qualified as those from a full in-house lab, to which Egberts replied that the data is available to show that they are and they are being widely used in hospitals across Ontario. They are able to handle about 98 per cent of normal blood testing required by doctors in emergency cases. The remaining highly specialized two per cent would still be needed to be performed at a lab in Belleville General. Trenton would also continue to require qualified lab staff to operate and maintain the point of care (POC) machines she said. Meanwhile, the four-hospital complex continues to wrestle with its budget problems under drastically changed provincial hospital care programs and funding. So far, the board was told, the expected deficit has been cut by about 60 per cent to less than $4 million and more ideas are being studied. Quinte Health Care also con-


tinues to strive to meet provincial goals for performance care. QHC falls short in some categories, but in some others, leads the province in meeting them, or is very close to provincial goals. One example shown by Egberts was “alternative long-term care,” one of the main problems facing the area. “One week in March we had some impressive and concrete examples of how this culture [improvement-oriented] can have a significant and measurable impact. In that week, QHC hit a new low of 8.1 per cent ALC, or 23 patients. There were free beds available for new admissions at all four QHC hospitals consistently all week. This was all while the volume of patients seeking care through the emergency departments had not dropped from the expected numbers.” The board also enthused about the working relationship between QHC and the Community Care Access Centre which is working closely with

Birds and art flock together in Quinte West EMC News - Trenton - The Gallery, home of Arts Quinte West and Trenton’s artistic community, has embraced Spring in its new exhibit “For The Birds.” Colourful and whimsical painted birdhouses show off the talents of local artists on a different type of “canvas” and the result is sure to drive away the winter blahs. In addition to birdhouses, AQW members have gathered paintings, photographs and sculptural pieces inspired by spring and our feathered friends. AQW display co-ordinator Suzanne Simard Meloche, who sparked the idea for the birdhouse project, says “We wanted to give our artists a challenge, to see how they would bring their artistic vision to a rather utilitarian object. We’re thrilled with all the different approaches they’ve chosen. The exhibit is so much fun!” For The Birds is sponsored by The Birdhouse Nature Store in Wooler, a favourite destination for backyard bird lovers. All birdhouses and artwork are available for purchase and a portion of the proceeds goes toward the operation of the art gallery. Arts Quinte West has operated The Gallery since June 2012 and is supported by the City of Quinte West, the Quinte West Chamber of Commerce and local business supporters. Over 100 artists from the region have joined the organization since its inception in 2008; the group has displayed in a variety of venues and maintains a number of art showcases within the community. The Gallery, located at 84 Dundas Street West, is open Wednesday through Friday from 11 to 5 and Saturday from 11 to 4:30.

So they did.” He then described how the filming crew and show host Mark Kelley arrived on March 15 and spent some time interviewing Zoutman and filming in various areas of the hospital, catching many staff members by surprise.

EMC Lifestyles - Belleville - One of the oldest established, yet least heralded organizations in Belleville is the Belleville Garden Club. Established in 1876, the club has been growing, gardening and helping to beautify the Friendly City for almost 140 years. Many of the public gardens around the city have benefited from the volunteer labour or expertise of Garden Club members over the years. With a membership now comprised mostly of seniors and women, the club in recent days announced plans to revive interest in what remains officially the biggest hobby in terms of participation in North America. A new project is a $500 scholarship to a student at any secondary school associated with the city entering a postsecondary program in horticulture, landscape design, forestry, environmental studies or sustainable or organic plant-based farming, said Audrey Pot, president.

EMC News - Madoc - Council has approved a preliminary budget that, if passed, will see little change in municipal tax bills and an overall increase in spending of less than one per cent. At the regular meeting of Centre Hastings Council last week, final numbers from the county were still unavailable and the budget based on projections, but with the county budget now approved, the township is expected to pass its final budget on April 10. The preliminary budget includes a .64 per cent increase in spending so the average tax bill will see only slight changes, depending on individual assessments. The preliminary budget also includes an additional transfer from the Gas Tax Reserves to offset expenditures for the Asset Management Plan (AMP) and the chiller for the arena. Council earlier heard a presentation from Greer Galloway’s Steve Blakey regarding the AMP. He explained that the key aspects of the provincially mandated program include an inventory of current assets and their condition, an assessment of the levels of service provided by the municipality, the preparation of a management strategy for those assets and an overall financial plan. Municipalities have an infrastructure deficit, Blakey says, and in order to access funding from upper levels of government in future the AMP is a requirement. Council also heard a delegation from Dan Wilson of CN Watson and Associates providing information on the requirements for the township’s Water Financial Plan. The “living document” would provide ongoing information and projections on water usage and treatment. Deputy-reeve Tom Simpson reported a good turnout at March Break library programs, updated council on potential plans for bench advertising at CHSN stops and offered a reminder that applications are now available for the township’s signage and façade improvement program. Work is also continuing at the boat launch. As well, Simpson congratulated the Centre Hastings Minor Hockey Association for its recent All-Ontario championships. Councilor Larry Mitz reported that with the existing recycling contract ending in November, a new six-year deal has been signed with HGC Management with costs “significantly higher” in future. “But our levy shouldn’t see much increase during this term of council,” he says. The firefighters pancake breakfast was another huge success, says Councilor Mike Kerby, noting the annual fund raiser netted $4,500 “and a lot of positive comments.” He also offered his condolences to the Walker family, following the recent house fire. Kerby also reported that the Stirling arena is preparing for a $386,000 facelift after the bid from Belleville’s Knudsen Construction was accepted of the five finalists. With a Hockeyille donation of $157,000, Kerby says, the remaining $229,000 will be shared among the four municipal users. Construction, which will include expanding washrooms, dressing rooms and the entranceway, is expected to begin at the end of April with a completion date in August.

Closing the generational gap through song

EMC Lifestyles - Belleville - The Interlink Intergenerational Choir is alive and well in Belleville, as students from Holy Rosary School and seniors from the Richmond Retirement Residence combine to create great music and great friendships.


The largest and most complete product range of 3 and 4 season sunrooms, deck enclosures and conservatories in every architectural style, we also offer you the largest choice in structural materials: sleek aluminum, efficient vinyl, and warm inviting natural wood. Only Doyle Sunrooms gives you this much choice to fit your personal style and build the room of your dreams.

“I think the biggest thing is that bond, that they can build that relationship with the senior, and to learn a whole new respect and understanding.” “Any opportunity for kids to interact with the older generation is just very special,” said teacher Ruth Terry, whose Grade 2/3 split takes part in the choir. For months, the students and seniors have

been getting together to rehearse their choir performance, and on Thursday, April 18, at 7 p.m. at Holy Rosary School all their hard work pays off as they finally make their public performance. Admission is $2. “I think the biggest thing is that bond, that they can build that relationship with the senior, and to learn a whole new respect and understanding,” Terry said. “It’s a beautiful friendship developed, and it’s a lifelong thing too.” The choir work also fits into the students’ curriculum, as aside from the obvious musical training, kids and seniors also write to one another as pen pals. Each of the students is paired with a senior, and Terry said it’s not unusual for kids and seniors to recognize each other around the community. “Even the kids who were in my class in Grade Three, when they’re in Grade Eight they see their partners in the hallway and it’s just like this instant joy,” Terry said. “It’s beautiful.”

The “Art” of friendship about art, because it’s called ‘Art,’ so they know that there is some kind of painting involved, but really, it’s not a play about art,” Burley said. “It’s about the art of friendship, what makes humanity get along. Burley first saw the play in the late 1990s and again several years ago, and said she was struck by the playwrights use of time and space. “Art” forgoes the usual traditional acts and scenes of its contemporaries and instead flows continuously on without any breaks or intermissions. “Sometimes you can be distracted by an intermission,” Burley said. “Once you get started, and you know that you’re there, your energy doesn’t flag, although you might be more exhausted by the end.” Burley describes the play as a mix of comedy and drama, although she added that much of that will be determined by the audience itself. “When relationships and friendships are under great stress, it gets pretty se-

EMC Events - Belleville - The Belleville General Hospital Foundation (BGHF) is excited to announce a Grease movie theme inspired event for its fundraising gala this year. The Grease Gala is taking over the Sears Atrium in Belleville on Saturday, September 28. The gala evening, co-chaired by Jenn Barrett and Ed Lehtinen, is the largest

single fund-raising event of its kind in the community. All proceeds from the event are used to purchase life-saving medical equipment at Belleville General Hospital, our community hospital that serves a region of over 160,000 residents. To date the galas have helped raise almost $1 million to buy the equipment our hospital needs and our govern-

rious,” Burley said. “Trying to find the humour in the dark story … I know it’s there, I just have to find a way to get it out.” Tickets are $18 and are available by calling the box office at 613-967-1442. There will be 13 performances from April 4 to 20, including two Sunday matinees. For more information, visit the their web site at <>.

NOW PLAYING R0012005961

EMC Entertainment - Belleville The Belleville Theatre Guild is showcasing their latest endeavour this week, as the 1998 Tony Award-winning play “Art” by Yasmina Reza takes centre stage at the Pinnacle Playhouse from April 4 to April 20. “It’s exciting,” said director Diane Burley, when asked how it felt to be so close to opening. “A little stressful, but they’re ready; they’re in really good shape.” “Art” revolves around the friendships of three men: Serge, played by Rob Lloyd, Marc, played by Craig Chamberlain, and Yvan, played by Ozz MacDonald. The trouble begins when Serge buys an expensive painting from a modern artist, but is told by best friend Marc that the painting is a joke and a waste of money. Yvan joins the fray shortly after, and as the three men square off over the canvas their friendship is nearly destroyed. “I think it’s a play that seems to be

ment does not pay for. “People are still talking about our last gala, the British Invasion,” said Ed Lehtinen, President of the BGHF Board of Directors. “With net proceeds of over $250,000 it was the most spectacular event the foundation has ever held—until this one.” “The success of our event comes from the ability to allow people to let loose, get into the theme and have a good time while helping their local hospital,” declared Jenn Barrett, Director of Development for the Belleville General Hospital Foundation. “Our goal is to put a ton of fun in this fund raiser and raise $300,000 for medical equipment. A great new addition to the event will be Freddy Vette and the Flames. We couldn’t dream of having a ’50s inspired event that didn’t include Freddy, and are thrilled that his performance has been made possible by the Quinte Broadcasting sponsorship.” The Grease Gala is an event not to be missed. The evening events will include dinner, live and silent auctions, dancing and other surprises. Tickets are $200 each and are available by contacting the Belleville General Hospital Foundation office at 613-969-7400 ext. 2528. There are also many sponsorship and auction donation opportunities that will help showcase businesses to the community. This event would not happen without the commitment of a small group of dedicated volunteers who spend a year planning for this sold-out event.

Gearing up for soccer season

EMC Sports - Stirling - Preparing for its 19th season, the Stirling and District Minor Soccer Association is back up and running although the players still have more than a month to wait. Officials say registration days have been busy as expected with plans now under way for the beginning of the season on May 21. Recent registration days at

the arena saw players, coaches and referees added to this year’s roster in what organizers describe as a fun league where individual and team skills are celebrated and fair play is endorsed at all levels and ages. League games will be held Tuesday and Thursdays from 6:30 until 8 p.m. Players from age 4 to 17 will play 45- or 60-minute games,

depending on player ages, with all participants provided with team shirt, socks and team photo. Late registrations ($100 per player) can be completed at West Wings. Players already registered can expect to hear from coaches in the coming weeks as teams are finalized. As in previous years, registration fees also include a $10 fund-raising fee

and the corresponding raffle tickets to be sold or submitted by the players. Several grocery prizes are available. League president Tom Martin is also urging parents and former players to consider taking on a volunteer position with the association, noting there is always a need for new coaches or executive members.

Bulls advance to conference semi-finals

EMC Sports - The Belleville Bulls have advanced to the conference semi-finals of the OHL play-offs for the first time since 2009, defeating the tenacious Mississauga Steelheads 3 - 0 in game six to take the opening round series four games to two. With ten points in the opening round, Bulls forward

Tyler Graovac sits fourth in play-off scoring, and goaltending standout Malcolm Subban allowed just one goal on 61 shots over the final two games to lead the Bulls to the first-round victory. The Bulls will now face the Sudbury Wolves in the second round of the play-offs, beginning Friday night in Belleville. With the series tied 2 - 2 after a pair of losses in Mississuaga, the Bulls played perhaps their most important game of the season at the Yardmen Arena on Saturday, March 30. Defenceman Stephen Silas scored two goals, captain Brendan Gaunce had a goal and an assist and Subban stopped 29 shots for the shutout, and the Bulls routed Mississauga by a final score of 5 - 0. Belleville shut down five separate Mississauga powerplays in the win while scoring a powerplay goal of their own, and Mississauga was forced to pull starting goaltender and Belleville native Tyson Teichmann midway through the second period after allowing four goals on 18 shots. After a slow start for the Bulls offense in the opening period, Silas broke the deadlock in the closing minutes of the first period by pouncing on a loose puck in front of the net and jamming it past a beleaguered Teichmann. Two minutes later, Scott Simmonds made a quick Bulls winger Aaron Berisha makes his way around a Mississuaga player March 30.

First-time ice dancers on the podium By Ray Yurkowski

Emily Siegner of Skate Canada Brighton and Charlie Refausse of the Trenton Figure Skating Club placed third in Junior Bronze Dance at the 2013 Skate Ontario StarSkate championships. Notably, the pair started working together for little more than two months before the medal-winning performance, and by all accounts it was a match that was meant to be. They’re the same height, the same age and skate at the same level on the ice. “They really started practising the first two weeks of January,” says coach Kandis Kelly. “We were using this season as a trial and had no idea they would be this successful.” How hard is it to teach a pair of 11-year-old skaters how to dance on Please see “Two” on page 19

Bantam Hawks fall short

going right for the Quinte West Bantam through four OMHA play-off series was augmented by another EMC Sports - Trenton - Everything was Hawks. An amazing run of 12 straight wins six in a row sandwiched between rounds at the Silver Stick tournament in Michigan. Throughout the 18-game streak, the Hawks outscored their opposition 80 - 17 with goaltender Tyler Freeman registering nine shutouts. But, in the final round against the Brampton 45’s, it fell apart in a hurry. After the first four games of the best-of-five series, the contenders were tied with two wins apiece and both teams scoring 11 goals to set up a winner-take-all showdown at the Duncan McDonald Memorial Arena last Saturday night. The Hawks tallied first, with less than three minutes on the clock in the first period, but the 45’s tied the score less than two minutes later. The Brampton squad took the lead at 4:51 of the second period. Less than two minutes later, the Hawks tied it up. But with only 57 seconds left in the period, the 45’s took a 3 - 2 lead. The final period featured wide-open, all-out, end-to-end hockey but the Hawks couldn’t solve the puzzle of beating Brampton goaltender Michael Hall, despite having a few breakaway opportunities. The 45’s added an empty-net goal in the final minute of The Quinte West Hawks were presented with the Jack W. Oakes Trophy play for the 4 - 2 win.   Matt Miller and Matt Tedford scored for the Hawks with assists as OMHA Bantam “A” finalists. They are: Adam Blakely, Christian Boers, Ethan Coens, Robbie Ellis, Tyler Freeman, Jaydon Hamilton, Josh Hogan, from Connor Taylor and Nick Jones. Hawks coach Tim Neron says the loss was disappointing; Mason Hum, Nick Jones, Matt Jordan, Justin Lewis, Matt Miller, Riley Sheil, especially knowing his team had the talent to win the provincial Connor Taylor, Matt Tedford, Dawson Turcotte, Andrew Whyte, Dawson championship.

“Big News” foal’s already in demand by breeders By Sue Dickens

EMC News - Campbellford - The lives of “Big News” and her foal hung in the balance as the mare struggled with the birth of a long-legged filly, the granddaughter of the undefeated Triple Crown winner Seattle Slew. “I could feel one foot but the other foot was turned back,” said owner Garry Parr, who along with his wife Brianne, had been waiting for weeks on pins and needles as the 17-year-old mare approached her due date. Suddenly it was time. Sensing trouble while assisting the mare, Parr immediately phoned his vet, Dr. Ron Herron of Belleville, who had just finished operating on a cow in Kingston. “I told him I’ve got the head but couldn’t get any more. I had managed to turn the leg forward and got the head and legs out. The filly was breathing and struggling to get out. I was so worried about her sharp hooves tearing the mare inside,” he said with a worried expression. And then the seasoned mare, who had done this many times before, surprised everyone and pushed—hard. “The mare sat upright and bodyslammed herself down. I‘ve never seen a mare push so hard,” said Parr. At 4:15 a.m. on March 16 the filly was born. Twenty-four hours later after the blood tests were done and the foal checked over, Parr was given the best news ever, both mom and the foal were fine. Two weeks later Trent Hills Regional News was invited to return and take some photos. The little filly has a lot to live up to, admitted Parr. The mare’s mother is Spilled Beans by another Triple Crown favourite, Secretariat. Hopes are the bloodline runs deep and this filly will become a Triple Crown winner one day. Parr plans to take her to Kentucky where he bought the mare and auction her off as a yearling.

“The foals of the filly’s father, Concord Point, were averaging just over $200,000 at the last yearling sale,” said Parr, who plans on breeding the mare one more time, before letting her retire on his farm, this time to Court Vision, a Breeders’ Cup champion who has earned $3.7 million in 31 starts. He also plans on having a vet watch over the mare 24/7. While take photographs the filly pranced around the barn and although shy, came up to the camera, inquisitive and nervous, stamping her feet. “It’s funny her mom does that. She copies everything her mom does,” said Parr, grinning from ear to ear.

“We’re hoping to incorporate something with her grandfather Secretariat.” The filly’s black tail and new “Mohawk” mane were offset by the shades of grey already evident on her long legs. Concord Point is grey. “She’s a feisty foal,” he added, laughing about how the filly wiped out in the straw while running circles around the mare. “We watch her on the security camera and she goes around and around like it’s a little racetrack,” he said. “We’re still watching them through the night to make sure everything is fine.” In the meantime he is fielding phone calls from breeders and the Canadian Thoroughbred Society. This is already one popular filly. As for a name, there’s no decision yet. “We’re hoping to incorporate something with her grandfather Secretariat,” said Parr as he watched her At two weeks old this long-legged filly is already a handful. Owner Garry Parr and his wife poke her head out of the stable door. “You must come back this summer … she will go Brianne say the birth by the mare “Big News” was touch and go for several minutes but both the mare and foal pulled through and are fine. Photo: Sue Dickens like lightning,” he said with a contented smile.

Township asked to help with basic trail maintenance

EMC News - Norwood - The township of Asphodel-Norwood has been asked to do some routine maintenance on a portion of the Lang-Hastings Trail that runs through the municipality. The 33-kilometre stretch of multi-use greenway trail is part of the Trans Canada Trail (TCT) and runs from just west of Hastings to the Peterborough city limits. It’s designated for walking,

hiking, horseback riding, cycling, cross-country skiing, snow-shoeing and snowmobiling. Greenway trails prohibit the use of motorized vehicles other than snowmobiles with Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Club permits. After $500,000 worth of upgrades, the trail, which runs along the former 1923 rail bed, will be officially opened during a special ceremony in the township

May 2. “It’s already been brushed in 2012; 2013 is strictly maintaining what’s already been done,” Kevin English, the safety director for the Peterborough-Hastings Trans Canada Trail Association told township council. English was joined by Barry Diceman, president of the volunteer association. English noted that the significant upgrade and improvement project was done at

no cost to either Asphodel-Norwood or neighbouring OtonabeeSouth Monaghan. “We’ve fund raised over $300,000 through personal contributions,” English said. “The trail has been insured and safety signed and ready to be officially

opened.” The local trail association is asking both Asphodel-Norwood and Otonabee-South Monaghan to provide routine “maintenance to the edge of the trail. “This is part of due diligence of keeping our safety signs and

stop signs visible. We have to keep it so the signs are visible. It’s just maintaining it for safety,” English says. “It’s not taking down any of the trees; it’s maintaining what’s already there.” Please see “Hastings-Lang” on page B3

How Does Threading Work? Threading removes an entire row of hair, instead of just one administered painfully by tweezing that often causes irritation, swelling, redness, and ingrown hairs. Threading penetrates more deeply than even waxing, but it won’t peel and traumatize skin the way waxing does. For people with skin sensitivities or who use Retin A and Accutane, threading off ers a safe and far more satisfactory alternative.


The overall winner at the Tweed Legion Zone Public speaking contest was Sarah Chapman. She is seen here with Tweed Legion President Pat Thomas. Photo:


EMC News - Tweed - The Zone Legion Public Speaking competition was held on March 23 at the Tweed Legion Branch 428 and emcee Legionnaire Dick Silverthorn pointed out that, “… although this year we have the same number of kids, there is a higher calibre of speeches. If more parents brought their kids to hear the speeches, they’d be shocked by the quality of what they’re hearing.” The overall winner was Sarah Chapman with her speech on “Population Growth & Sustainability.” The speech was well researched and fact based and Sarah stated her class was studying this subject. Among the many startling facts she presented was that world population would reach nine billion by 2050 and with the current rate of consumption, there would not be enough food production to feed this mass of humanity. Chapman noted the West uses a linear consumption model which creates huge waste. Her solution is to adopt a circular consumption model for reusing, recy-

Flag men and safety signage would be provided in each township by Drain Brothers Excavating, English said. Diceman says that Selwyn Township has agreed to a similar maintenance project on a stretch of the TCT running through that municipality. “There’s no maintenance budget; it’s all volunteer,” said English. “It has to be done in some way; all the other trails [within the TCT] are done somehow. Every part of the Trans Canada Trail is done at the edges.” The trail committee would like the work done in the fall before the winter weather arrives. Councillor Mary Hay suggested council ask for a staff report on the request as soon as possi-

ble “to allow Jeff [acting public works manager Jeff Waldon] to go see what needs to be done and map out a schedule.” Waldon would also meet with English to get a “better sense of what [the township’s] involvement will be.” Completion of the Lang-Hastings section of the trail is a step toward attaining “Connection 2017,” an initiative to connect the Trans Canada Trail from coast to coast to help celebrate the 150th anniversary of Confederation. The Lang-Hastings Trail will complete a continuous 120-kilometre trail that runs from Campbellford to Lindsay. The trail features wayfinding signs and kilometre markers. More than 30,000 tonnes of aggregate material was laid on the old rail bed to complete the Hastings-Lang Trail.

“It also gives merchants in town a little bit of help; it brings money into the town. Everyone benefits from it,” he said. Martin thanked HBM Mayor Ron Gerow and Dave Sharpe for helping out with the setup along with his other volunteers. “I’m pretty happy with it.” He’d like to hold another show before fall but it depends on scheduling.

tables. Each show has been both a fund raiser for Legion Branch 389 and a tribute to its veterans, something Martin feels very strongly about. “I do it for the Legion and our vets and our community,” the genial Martin told the Trent Hills Regional News. “I think about all the boys who never came home and what I can do to help our Legion and our vets because all our Legions are in trouble.” The Legion does a lot for the community and I’m trying to give back what we can.” The shows have “been a big success” because of the “good variety” that Martin’s vendors bring to Havelock, everything from military and antiques to muzzle loaders and hunting and sporting rifles. Martin is rigorously strict about following all firearms laws and regulations and customers and vendors appreciate the attention to detail. “I am very happy with the turnout here,” Martin said. “Anyone who collects won’t mind travelling if the quality is good,” he says. “They get to know you and if you’re good; you get a lot of connections at the show and somebody will phone you up later on looking for something. If I don’t have it I can tell them who does.” Martin appreciates the fact that people do want to travel great distances to spend time in Havelock. “They’re telling us this is a great northern community and how it’s so hunter-oriented here,” he said. “I’m just doing it to prove to other people that we’re just as entitled to our sport as somebody who is hitting a golf ball and it’s proven by the people who are coming through here.” Martin says he was “kind of leery” about holding a show Havelock gun show organizer on a holiday weekend not sure of how things would turn out Don Martin (right) stands with his but the crowds proved him right.

How technology threatens marriages

Reality Check:

Sheila Wray Gregoire EMC Lifestyles - It’s 1975 and Mr. Company Manager needs to talk to Ms. Sales Manager about an account. It’s after hours, so he picks up the phone and calls her at home. Her husband answers. The two chat for a bit about the latest Maple Leafs’ loss, and then husband passes the phone to wife.

It’s 1991 and Miss Recent Law Grad needs to talk to Mr. Lawyer Partner about a case on the weekend. She dials his home phone and Mr. Lawyer’s four-year-old son answers. Recent Law Grad convinces him to pass the phone to his mommy, who explains that Mr. Lawyer Partner is out taking the eightyear-old to gymnastics. Miss Recent Law Grad used to take gymnastics, too. They chat for a bit about the lessons, and she leaves a message with Mrs. Lawyer Partner explaining why she’s bugging Mr. Lawyer Partner at home. It’s 1982 and Johnny Doe is driving through his hometown when he passes the old “make out bridge.” He has fleeting thoughts of Mary Jane, with whom he often frequented that spot. But he doesn’t look her up, because he has no idea where she is. She’s probably married anyhow. Now it’s 2013, so let’s redo all of those scenarios. Mr. Company Manager

fall off. The casual gardener eventually twigs to the sight of twigs where there should be leaves. A closer inspection shows a plant covered in white and brown rice-like flecks. (Although scale tends to be plant specific, euonymus scale enjoys gnoshing on lilacs, too. We have seen some nasty looking infestations on the French hybrids and Prestons, but not yet on Korean derivatives, e.g. Tinkerbelle and Miss Kim.) Also Boxwood, Japanese spurge, Ilex (holly) and Bittersweet can harbour this pest. If you see your euonymus covered, check out these other plants, and don’t forget to chat with your neighbour. I’m not going to worry about all of the fancy names of the various stages; you can get that from text books or more erudite communicators than I. Instead, I’ll use the terminology that has immediate meaning to us. The first word is “eggs,” which are laid in the early spring and hatch in the first few weeks of June. After hatching, the little bugs are in the “crawler” stage. They tottle about the stems and twigs, find a

nice unoccupied bit of tasty plant. They latch on to their new abode with their mouths, lose their legs and then cover themselves with a hard waxy coat that is impervious to almost all topical insecticides. Then, collectively, they suck the plant dry as they progress through their remaining stages into adulthood. At that time, the males fly away looking for mates and they have to do it quickly because they don’t live longer than a day. The fertilised lady just lounges about where she is. In the spring, she lays eggs. There are two times during which this wee pest is most vulnerable. The first is during the egg stage. An application of dormant oil will usually do in most of the eggs but some might be protected and live to hatch. The second vulnerable window is during the crawling stage. A lighter dormant oil will work but so will an insecticidal soap and this is preferred. The trick is to know when they’re clambering about their dinner table and fortunately phenology helps us out. For those of you unfamiliar with that word, let me explain. It refers, basically, to noticing what is happening in relation to other things that are happening. So, when you see black locusts or pagoda CUSTOM MARINE, INDUSTRIAL & REPAIR STAINLESS STEEL AND ALUMINUM WELDING & MANUFACTURING dogwoods in full bloom, you can expect to see these Edgar (Ted) Provis euonymus crawlProvis & Associates, 234 Jeffery Dr., Trenton Ontario, K8V 5P8 ers.

Technology has completely changed the way we interact, and I don’t think it’s always for the better. Sure I appreciate being able to text my daughter when she’s late, rather than plotting revenge for making me worry. I appreciate being able to text my husband to ask him to pick something up without having to fret that I’m interrupting him by calling. Texting is a wonderful tool. But it can also obscure true relationships. That family phone at one point acted as a gatekeeper. You couldn’t just call a married individual of the opposite sex without also talking to that person’s spouse or kids. You were constantly reminded that the person was part of a larger unit. You had no real way to pursue a more personal relationship unless you did so deliberately. Today often innocent texts can turn into something more. Or take Facebook. According to the Loyola University Health System, it’s implicated in 20 per cent of U.S. divorc-

es. You can flirt with someone while sitting next to your spouse! He’s watching football; she’s messaging Johnny. We can’t turn back the clock on technology, but I do think every married couple needs establish boundaries that clearly tell the outside world “we are a unit.” Several of my couple friends have a combined Facebook account. Others have a “no texting during family time” rule, or a “both spouses always know the password to the phone” rule. Marriage is tough enough without other people driving a wedge. So talk to each other. Set boundaries. Get to know your spouse’s co-workers. And above all, never stop working on your marriage.

texts Ms. Sales Manager about the account. They banter back and forth, in texts that grow increasingly personal. He never actually talks to Ms. Sales Manager’s husband, and thus often forgets the man exists. Miss Recent Law Grad texts Mr. Lawyer Partner while he’s watching gymnastics. She’s never talked to the wife. She knows vaguely that he has a few kids, but they’re not real to her. But every day she and the partner text back and forth at least a dozen times. They’re becoming good friends. And Johnny Doe? He found Mary Jane on Facebook a couple of months back. They’ve been privately messaging for a while now. She’s been married for 23 years, but she feels dissatisfied. “Talking” to Johnny reminds her of those exhilarating times when she was young and felt desirable and the future was all open to her. Her husband has no idea that she’s found Johnny again.

Dan Clost For example, when the forsythia is in full bloom you know the soil around it is ready for gardening, no matter where you live. Another method is to use Degree Day Accumulation charts but that is for another column or for you to research on the net. And here’s another neat way to do it, lifted directly from the Michigan State University Extension web site: The ideal timing of this oil spray is zero to two weeks after 90 per cent of the crawlers have emerged. This can be determined by clipping infested twigs once per week starting the third week of May, putting them in a Zip-Lock bag labelled with the date they were sampled and observing them on your desk. (Or coffee table beside the remote.) Because your office is much warmer than the average daily temperature outdoors in late May, the crawlers will emerge much sooner in your office, giving you some warning as to when to carefully examine the shrubs outdoors. When you see so many crawlers that it looks like a yellow dust on the twigs and leaves, plan on spraying with horticultural oil about one week later. By the way, now is an ideal time to get out there and check your plants. The planting season is about to spring upon us, so let’s get as many chores out of the way so that we can thoroughly enjoy it.

Exploring California’s rugged coastline

Arriving in Monterey, California (the setting for John Steinbeck’s novel, Cannery Row). By John M. Smith

EMC Lifestyles - While vacationing in San Francisco, my wife and I decided to take a day trip along California’s rugged coastline, so we were picked up at our hotel by Tower Tours, <>, and taken by bus on a full day (12hour) excursion. It turned out to be a beautiful, clear day and a great tour. After leaving San Francisco, we were soon travelling

and soon discovered that many of the oceanfront restaurants offer a free bowl of clam chowder with the meal (as an enticement to dine at a particular establishment). Monterey also offers an incredible aquarium, the Monterey Bay Aquarium, that’s home to more than 6,500 specimens of marine life indigenous to Monterey Bay. However, after our seafood lunch, my wife decided to check out some of the souvenir shops while I found a nearby cycling/hiking recreational trail that allowed me to explore more of the area’s rugged coastline. I even discovered some sea lions cavorting on nearby rocks! We then pro-

Bale wrap project FARM wants data from farmers EMC News - Ivanhoe - In a presentation March 27 at the Ivanhoe Huntingdon Veteran’s hall, representatives of Loyalist College Enactus project, FullCircle Agricultural Recycling Management (FARM), laid out what they need from farmers within Hastings, Prince Edward, Lennox and Addington, and Northumberland counties to proceed with their application for funding from the department of Sustainable Development Technology Canada.

The project is dedicated to developing a sustainable and viable agricultural recycling program for silage/bale wrap which is “a huge environmental concern” Meyer told about 20 people at the Wednesday night meeting hosted by the Hastings Federation of Agriculture. Currently, used bale wrap is deemed “not-recyclable.” Meyer said the wrap is commonly disposed of in “environmentally unfriendly ways.” Their goal is to design and implement a waste management program to successfully recycle this material. “What we need from you, the farmer,” Millard said, “is specific data: We need bale wrap consumption rates from the four counties. We need to work with local municipal/county government officials to verify acceptable waste transfer station locations within each geographical region. We need to brainstorm and develop viable business solutions for the

Millard said the team is excited to find the program proposal data outline they needed through <www.cleanfarms. ca> a stewardship program which does environmental studies across Canada. “This group has given us extra momentum and all the information we need to go forward. We just need real numbers and feedback from the farmers.” Millard admits he is not a farmer; he is a business specialist, a professor, and sees the reclamation of used bale wrap as a business opportunity which will benefit all participating partners. He foresees a reduction in bale wrap purchase price for farmers, and support for them through Enactus Loyalist college to address agricultural waste issues while reducing environmental impact from current disposal methods. Bale wrap is a petroleum based product which can be reclaimed by reducing it to pellets. The value of reclaimed wrap and where it can be used, depends on the cleanliness of the used product. Limiting factors in getting highest dollar value in the process, is how to clean the wrap and logistics of collection and transportation on a regular basis. Meyer said having the statistics for how much product is used is essential. Participants were asked to write down where they get their wrap and how much per year. A.J. DeBoef, a dairy farmer in Prince

Edward County, says he has 240 acres in hay and uses two skids of bale wrap per year, on average. Each skid weighs a tonne. Organic farmer Luc Paradis, also from Prince Edward, said bale wrap has no bearing on organic farming, “There is no proof of leaching into the silage.” Lynn Leavitt, said he also uses two skids and has invested in a “tuber” to wrap long rows of hay rolls. “Overall the bale wrap process is less taxing for the farmer and produces high quality silage.” Leavitt said he can bale his hay himself. The tuber, he added, uses less fuel

with a 15-horsepower Honda engine. DeBoef added that hay can be harvested when it is ready. “We can bale it with 60 to 70 per cent moisture content. The whole process is more efficient and we can get more cuts per year.” These farmers and others agree use of bale wrap enables them to harvest hay regularly, more efficiently and produces high quality feed, but they also all have concerns over the environmental impact of used bale wrap Contact the FARM project organizers at Loyalist College by phoning Bob Millard at 613-969-1913 ext. 2415.

This project will explore the process of sheep/alpacas to yarn/fabrics. Working with sheep and the shearing of their wool dates back almost to the beginning of time. There are many references in early history to shepherds and their flocks. Fabrics made from wool have been found in the ruins of villages thousands of years old.

For 100 years, 4-H has been known for building leadership, life skills and community involvement. The roots of the 4-H program were farm-focused and directed at the development of rural youth.

Brandt spends hockey weekend on Baffin Island

By Richard Turtle

EMC News - Stirling - At many Canadian rinks the season is over, but for 20-year-old Carleton University student Zachary Brandt this weekend is sure to be a hockey highlight. And while Brandt no longer plays organized hockey, he has no intention of leaving the ice any time soon. The former player now dons the referee’s black and white stripes and after eight years as an on-ice official was selected by Hockey Canada to participate in this weekend’s Hockey Canada sanctioned Midget tournament in Iqaluit, Nunavut. Brandt, who began

refereeing Junior hockey for the first time this year, got the news two weeks ago that he was among four refs offered the great white northern opportunity and while at a particularly busy time in his school schedule, it was an offer he couldn’t refuse. “It was unreal,” he says of opening the email from Hockey Canada, adding the invitation came as a complete surprise. And it was particularly gratifying, Brandt notes, because the role of official has become a passion for him. “I actually like it more than playing,” he says. “You’re still in there and I’m reffing high-

er levels of hockey than I could have played.” And this weekend he’ll be getting plenty of ice time. Along with his refereeing duties, Brandt will also be taking part in refereeing clinics to train new and upcoming officials in the North. And while he is uncertain of exactly what to expect, he is looking forward to the trip. And, Brandt says, the weekend in Nunavut won’t hurt his chances at furthering his on-ice career either. With hopes of becoming an OHL official, “like Allan Detlor,” he admits it’s not always the easiest of jobs. And in a contact

Hoppy Easter time

sport where tempers can flare, an official can quickly find himself in the line of fire. There have been some tense moments, he says, along with a few tests of strength. But so far he has passed with flying colours. While reffing a Jr. C play-off game recently, Brandt says, a player was cross-checked in the face and lost several teeth in the process. “It took everything I had just to hold him back,” he recalls. But the altercation wasn’t allowed to escalate. And for the most part, Brandt says, the place to be is right in the middle of the action. Even if that means going to the northern reaches of Canada, northeast of Hudson Bay to Baffin Island. Scheduled to leave tomorrow on his first trip into the far north Brandt expects to be back in Ottawa next week where he is currently completing his third year studying commerce. He plans to return to Stirling for the summer before attending his final year at Carleton in 2013-2014.
