New building consumes meeting By Jack Evans

EMC News - Belleville - Being on track for a complete new headquarters after many years of study and debate and several different boards and chairs, the project was almost all-consuming at the May meeting of The Hastings and Prince Edward Counties Health Unit Board May 1. Prior to the board’s regular meeting Thursday morning, there was a special open meeting of the board’s Accommodation Committee, headed by vice-chair Jim McBride. Officials of MHPM Project Leaders of Ottawa, the project management firm the board hired last year, heard a detailed presentation of where the project is at and where it is going over the next several

months. Changed at the last minute from a one-storey addition, the project is now a complete new two-storey structure estimated at around $13 million. Among other benefits of the change and the slightly increased price, the board and its 100-plus staff members can continue working in the present building until the adjacent new building is completed, expected to be next year or early in 2015. Showing artist’s sketches of the proposed new building and its interior arrangement, Alison Wesley-James and other company officials said the project is now “on target” and there are strong indications that it will be “under budget.” Wesley-James said the company will be


calling for qualifications within a few days from a list of selected builders to ensure they and any subcontractors associated with them are capable of the type, size and estimated cost of such a project. There will be three cost estimates compiled, each involving increased detail, after which tenders will be drawn up and recommendations made to the board’s September meeting, work to start soon after that. Several special meetings during the summer will be needed by the accommodation committee. The 34,000-square-foot building will include large group teaching rooms, Please see “Food” on page 3

EMC News - Belleville - The heart of downtown Belleville was on full display this past weekend, as the first annual Belleville Jane’s Walk gave dozens of people a guided tour of some of the city’s most venerable locales and monuments. “We think that downtown Belleville is kind of at a critical point in its history,” said volunteer Susan White. “We’ve lost some buildings and we’re losing some buildings, well that’s also an opportunity. What do people want to see downtown? We’re people that love downtown, and go to the market, and go to the stores here, and appreciate the restaurants here, and go to the Empire and all that downtown has to offer, and we hate to see it wither and die.” Named for Toronto urban thinker and activist Jane Jacobs, Jane’s Walks take place across the world in places as far away as Guadalajara, and in 2012, 85 cities in 17 countries around the world took part. The first Jane’s Walks in Belleville were split into three distinct undertakings: Meet Me at the Four Corners, Back Side for your Backside and Down by the Bay. The first of these walks, Meet Me at the Four Corners was led by past president of the Hastings Historical Society and former Globe and Mail columnist and reporter Orland French, and focused on the true core of the downtown, examining ancient alleyways and landmarks. This opening walk proved especially popular, drawing roughly 100 people for a guided tour of the downtown. “I knew in advance that there was a lot of interest in this and that people were waiting for it, and we’ve got a lot of people who came out for it, from all different backgrounds,” French said. “I think the basic idea was to stimulate ideas and proposals for what could be done downtown, to make it come alive again.” The circular route took participants past sites such as the former site of Hotel Quinte and ended at the marketplace behind city hall, where French took the chance to address those that had taken part. “Taking pride in your local community and your city, that’s a big part of it, and I was pleased to see the number of people here that will go back to their various organizations and their families Please see “Change” on page 4

Council agrees to purchase new pumper-tanker By Richard Turtle

EMC News - Stirling - In an effort to avoid passing on debt to future councils, members of the Protection to Persons and Property Committee voted in favour of a motion to replace an existing fire truck, on the condition it be paid for before the next municipal election. At the regular meeting of Stirling-Rawdon council earlier this week, after accepting the committee recommendations for speedy payment, Mayor Rodney Cooney noted a long-range plan

for equipment acquisitions and replacements prepared by Fire Chief Rick Caddick would have to be altered to accommodate the $250,000 purchase. A motion, made in committee by Jeremy Solmes and seconded by Bob Mullin, had allowed for about $50,000 in funding to become the responsibility of the next term of council, but the motion was defeated. Cooney then moved that a new pumpertanker be purchased for Station 2 in Spring Brook and “that the entire cost of the new truck be paid and totally funded by this term of council.” Sec-

onded by Grant Hagerman, the motion was passed. The truck is expected to be delivered before the end of the year. Plans to dismantle the Stirling Skate Park have been put on hold while Parks and Recreation Committee members reassess the situation. Committee members had intended to remove the existing equipment owing to a lack of interest, but after an upsurge in activity recently, they have opted to revisit the issue in the fall. After a request was made for permission to

continue with a renovation in a municipal building, council decided to visit the local library to get a firsthand look at the project before moving forward. Councillors were uncertain of the scope of the work being done or exactly how Trillium funding was being spent and, after a brief discussion, agreed to visit the municipally owned building to see for themselves. Council passed four bylaws to employ plumbers and tradespeople in preparation for the installation of water meters throughout the village.

Raising funds for the CNIB By Steve Jessel

EMC News - Belleville - Motorists taking a trip through downtown Belleville Saturday morning might have noticed the Belleville Lions Club voluntary toll road on Pinnacle Street, as a number of their members took the time to help raise money for the Canadian National Institute for the Blind (CNIB). “Belleville is a fabulous community, very caring, very giving, it supports everything,” said CNIB Fund Development manager Eyre Purkin Bien. The Belleville Lions joined five other clubs across Ontario in raising money for the CNIB, and for Belleville this marked the fourth time the voluntary toll road has taken place. Belleville Lions vice-president Cathy Collins said they usually raise between $2,000 and $3,000 each year with the toll road, and that all funds raised directly benefit clinics and groups in the immediate area. “We do quite well, and most people are very receptive to giving just a little bit,” Collins said. “Even if you bring your pennies to us every little bit helps. We’re glad to get what we can for CNIB.” Since its founding in 1918, CNIB has become one of Canada’s leading resources for Canadians who are either blind or partially sighted. The three main pillars the organization feels are necessary to their work in Canadian communities across the country are community-based support, knowledge and a national voice, and Purkin Bien said getting the message of prevention out is one of the most vital things they can accomplish. “The truth of the matter is, it can strike like that,” she said, snapping her fingers. As May is Vision Health Month in Canada, CNIB has partnered with Doctors of Optometry Canada to call on all Canadians to get regular eye examinations. They have also set up a web site at <www.visionhealthmonth.cnib. ca> where Canadians can find local optometrists in their area. “Seventy-five per cent of vision loss is treatable and preventable,” Purkin Bien said. “Major vision illnesses can be prevented if caught in time, so it’s like an early intervention initiative.”

Food training program set to proceed Continued from page 1

clinic area, dental rooms, vaccine storage facilities, staff offices and emergency generator for backup power. There will also be parking for 130 vehicles after the present building is demolished. Board chair Beth Campbell described the project as “very exciting.” The board authorized the special committee to handle all the approvals up until formal acceptance of a tender, thus avoiding any special board meetings during the summer. The board also embarked on another ambitious initiative by voting to proceed with a formal mandatory Food Handler Training program, preparing bylaws and procedures for all the municipal members of the two-county area. That issue was raised at the previous meeting by Belleville Councillor Jack Miller. His successful motion then led to a detailed report by staff member Dave Dodgson on how to proceed and how it could be phased in over several months. The program will apply to high- and medium-risk food handling premises only, such as institutions and full service menu restaurants. It will not apply to most fast food outlets or special events and farmers’ markets food sales.

CNIB receives only 35 per cent of its funding through the government, with the remaining amount coming from community sources. Each year, CNIB helps more than 10,000 children and youth overcome the challenges of growing up without vision, and over 29,000 people take advantage of CNIB peer support groups. “We are passionately supporting individuals to have the opportunities, the skills, the confidence to live life to the fullest,” Purkin Bien said. A number of Belleville Lions Club members posted up on Pinnacle Street in Belleville on Saturday, raising funds for the Canadian National Institute for the Blind. Photo: Steve Jessel

and friends and talk about ideas,” French said. “I think anybody who walks around and gets some sense of the history of it, comes up with ideas, and that’s where change comes from. It doesn’t come from planners at city hall or councillors at city hall imposing a change; the ideas come from people.” The second Jane’s Walk, Back side for your

Backside focused on being an accessible fitness walk led by local fitness experts, while Down by the Bay was led by landscape architect Kevin Tribble, a designer of the city’s Bayshore Trail. “When we did some of the draft walks for this, it was amazing some of the things that we found,” White said. “It was quite inspiring, and we’re hoping that other people will feel that way too.”

More than 100 people turned out for the inaugural Jane’s Walk in Belleville, which aimed to explore some of the history of the city’s downtown. Photo: Steve Jessel R0012086456

New Quinte Symphony “just warming up”


EMC Entertainment - Belleville - The weather is warming up—and so is the Quinte Symphony. The orchestra’s coming concert on Sunday evening, May 26, will reflect not only the coming of spring and summer, but the orchestra’s determination to maintain the warm audience response it enjoyed for its hugely successful Broadway in Belleville revival concert February 10. Orchestra officials stress this season-closing concert will focus on the warm season and also on graduation time. As a salute to graduates at all levels across the area, the orchestra will perform Brahms’ stirring Academic Festival Overture. This much loved work was the composer’s way of saying thank you for a major honourary PhD degree from

Breslau University. It is laced with several popular student party songs, some of them familiar to Canadian audiences through the famous musical, The Student Prince. Well-known American composer Aaron Copland’s Appalachian Spring is another much loved concert work, with its familiar Shaker melody theme, ’Tis a Gift to Be Simple. Most music lovers are familiar with Italian composer Vivaldi’s frequently performed work, The Seasons. Quinte Symphony’s own Sandra Smith will be featured violinist for the Summer movement of this symphonic hit parade type work. Youthful Alison Temple, a Stirling native already with established operatic credentials, will be guest vocalist with songs that will include Gershwin’s timely Summertime. Alison will star in the coming Belleville Theatre Guild musical, The King and I. This program will also include a hearty helping of laughter. Denise Oucharek impersonates famous BritishCanadian comedienne Anna Russell. Finally, Belleville resident Patrick Doyle was the successful bidder on a silent auction during the last Festival of Trees for a chance to conduct the orchestra. His wish will be fulfilled as he leads it in the familiar Viennese Radetzki March. Tickets are now available at the Quinte Arts Council Office on Bridge Street East, and Sam the Record Man in the Quinte Mall. Prices are $20 for adults, $15 for seniors and $10 for students. Tickets will also be available at the door. Please note this is an evening concert with a 7 p.m. start.

EMC News - Deseronto - The Town of Deseronto is poised to put itself on anglers’ maps in a big way, as the community has been chosen as a finalist for the World Fishing Network Ultimate Fishing Town contest. “It felt fantastic. We were all pretty elated on Friday afternoon when they announced the results,” said Town of Deseronto Economic Development Officer Dana Valentyne. “Our fingers were crossed, and luckily enough they selected us as well, so we’re very excited about it.” With a grand prize of $25,000 and regional prizes of $3,500, the results of the contest could have big meaning for the community of roughly 1,900 people. While Valentyne acknowledges that winning the grand prize is a pretty remote possibility considering the population of some of the other finalists, the advantages offered by even being named a finalist are hard to measure. “Any sort of contest or event like this, anything we can do to put Deseronto on the map and create some awareness about the great opportunities and attractions we have here is something that we pursue as much as we possibly can,” Valentyne said. “We’re a smaller community, and I think we’ve done fantastic through this contest.” Voting runs through May 24, and individuals can vote once every six hours for their favourite finalist. Should Deseronto win any prize money, Valentyne

Cora Bailey Award given to Norma Broadbear

By Kate Everson

EMC Lifestyles - Quinte West - Norma Broadbear was thrilled to be presented with the Cora Bailey Award at the annual Retired Women Teachers of Ontario (RWTO) for Trenton and District. “It’s wonderful to volunteer and be part of this group,” Broadbear said accepting the award from Leslie Uttley, provincial president. “I’m honoured to be part of this.” The presentation was made at the annual dinner on May 2 at Occasions By the Bay. Norma began her teaching career in 1969 in Napanee where she retired in 1999. She has served as Insurance Convenor for three years and in 2004 began her years on the executive, becoming president in 2006. She

has been on the committee for the selection of the Cora Bailey recipient every year except this one. Norma’s contributions include visiting Grace Morton and Laura Harrison on a weekly basis. She interviewed them and recorded their reminiscences for publication in the RWTO’s 50th anniversary book, Chalk, Challenge and Change. She visits members who are in hospital and those who are housebound or in nursing homes. Norma is always willing to drive members to meetings. “She spreads our good name by her contribution to the community through her work for the Humane Society, Quinte Field Naturalists, Sandy Pines Wildlife Centre and St. John Ambulance Therapy Dog Program,” added

past president Cathy O’Brien. “Without the contributions made by people like Norma, our organization would be less and we would be diminished. She far surpasses the criteria set up for this award and joins the elite group of past recipients.”

“It’s wonderful to volunteer and be part of this group.” The ladies were also entertained by four talented young singers from local schools: Braelyn Guppy from Moira Secondary, Natasha Mullins in Grade Provincial RWTO president Leslie Uttley presents the Cora Bailey award to Norma Broadbear.

BMO makes donation to Afghanistan Repatriation Memorial By Kate Everson

EMC News - Quinte West - The Bank of Montreal has donated $25,000 to the Afghanistan Repatriation Memorial. District vice president Lloyd Fleming made the presentation at Bain Park on May 1 along with area manager Danielle Williams and branch manager Kelly Oosting. “We are proud to be part of it,” Fleming said. He noted that for many people this memorial has personal meaning. They know of someone who died in Afghanistan. Each name is engraved in stone. “It is a shared loss,” said Kelly Oosting. “This is a place of peace.” Fleming said he is from the Trenton area and his wife grew up here. Colonel Sean Friday said it is a national feeling and there are not many lines of separation among those who share the same sentiments. They saw people lining the fences and on the overpasses during the repatriations and he could sense that the whole nation was with them. Mayor John Williams said the granite has a huge crack down the middle of it, and some people have commented that it was a fault in the stone. Williams

pointed out it was part of the design, showing the loss of separation between the fallen soldier and his family. Fleming said the Bank of Montreal has been “a bank of the military” with banks in Lahr and Baden, Germany. “We have long been associated with the military and we are proud of it,” he said.

Over $1 million has been raised for the memorial, all from donations and no government funding. “We need $1.2 million,” Williams said. “This gets us closer. More is in the works.” He said this donation keeps up the awareness of the memorial and they are still open to donations. “We’re still not there yet,” he said.

Drones and Guantanamo

EMC Editorial - John Bellinger is the last person in Washington you’d expect to criticise President Barack Obama for making too many drone strikes. It was he who drafted the (rather unconvincing) legal justification for targeted drone killings when he was legal adviser to the Secretary of State in George W. Bush’s second administration, and he still supports them. But he went ahead and criticised Obama anyway. Gwynne Dyer Speaking at a conference at the Bipartisan Policy Centre in Washington on May 1, Bellinger said: “This government has decided that instead of detaining members of al-Qaeda (at Guantanamo), they are going to kill them.” Leaving aside the question of whether most of the people detained at Guantanamo were ever actually members of al-Qaeda, there is a certain amount of plausibility in this accusation. President Obama wants to close the U.S. prison camp on the Cuban coast where hundreds of suspected supporters of al-Qaeda have been held without charge, some for almost a decade. There are still 166 prisoners at Guantanamo, and just last week Obama, having been thwarted by Congress in his first-term pledge to close the place, announced his intention to try again with the new Congress. The U.S. president was quite eloquent about why Guantanamo should be closed. “It is expensive. It is inefficient. It hurts us in terms of our international standing. It lessens cooperation with our allies on counter-terrorism. It is a recruitment tool for extremists. It needs to be closed.” It also flouts international law, but even foreign-born Muslim socialist presidents of the United States can never concede that the whole enterprise was illegal. The furthest Obama will go is to say that it was counter-productive from the start, but that alone should be a sufficient justification for closing the place. So why did John Bellinger, of all people, then accuse Obama of using drones too often? The U.S. president certainly does seem to like them: the vast majority of the 370 U.S. drone attacks, killing an estimated 3,500 people, have been carried out on his watch. According to Bellinger, it’s because Obama knows that if he can’t send the evil-doers to Guantanamo, his only alternative is to kill them with drone strikes. What we actually have here is an unusually subtle Republican argument: if you don’t like the drone strikes (because they kill lots of innocent people), then you should keep Guantanamo open. But subtle is not the same as valid.

There are two unstated assumptions at the heart of this argument. One is that the U.S. could put its drones away and just capture the people it suspects of being al-Qaeda supporters by conventional means and lock them away in Guantanamo. No fuss, no muss, and no innocent “collateral damage.” That’s ridiculous: the United States is not going to have much luck in tracking down alleged al-Qaeda supporters in the wilds of Yemen or Afghanistan and spiriting them away to Guantanamo. If it doesn’t target them with drones, then most of them will go on living (and so will the innocent people nearby). But you can’t just leave such dangerous people alive, can you? This brings us to the second unstated assumption: that if all those dangerous people had been allowed to live, then there would have been hundreds of terrorist attacks against the United States. Or at least dozens. Okay then, how about a couple? Probably not even one. After all, there were no drone strikes for the first three years after the 9/11 attacks in 2001, because the technology was not yet available. Yet even then, when al-Qaeda was still a relatively strong and cohesive organisation, there was not one further terrorist attack on the United States. The link between drone strikes and possible terrorist attacks on the United States is purely rhetorical. There might have been one or two fewer attacks on American forces in Afghanistan if the drones had not been killing people in the tribal territories of Pakistan, but a simpler remedy than drone strikes would just be to withdraw those forces from Afghanistan as soon as possible. They are not serving any American interest by being there, and they cannot determine who will rule the country after they finally go home. Indeed, since the Taliban’s guerilla war against the foreign armies in that country only got under way AFTER the drone strikes had begun, and has grown in almost every year since, it’s hard to argue that drones have prevented many attacks even there. The whole “war on terror,” the militarisation of what should have been a counter-terrorist campaign conducted by intelligence services, diplomats, police and courts, was a ghastly blunder from the start. Never mind. The whole argument is moot. Obama won’t get the Republican majority in the House of Representatives to go along with closing Guantanamo this time either. And he won’t stop the drone strikes because he needs to be seen by the American public to be doing something “positive” as he brings the American troops home from another needless and lost war. There is not one iota of strategic thinking in any of this. It’s all about American domestic politics, as the response to 9/11 has been from the beginning.


Reader tried to make a donation Dear Editor, On Saturday, about 3 p.m., I visited your outlet in Belleville Humane Society in order to give a donation and to ask for a donation box for my office. Your volunteers were extremely rude to me, which I attribute to the fact that I speak with an accent. The young one was pretending “not to understand” at all, what I am trying to say, and the older one completely ignored my presence. They both discussed just in front of me “What did she say?” and the older one told the young one “She said she wanted a donation box, I think.” After their discussion, the older one continued to ignore me, and the young one told me to call Monday. I said can I leave at least a few coins, and the young lady told me that I may leave some, yes, as if she is doing me a favour. Being met with such a chilly welcome, I was feeling very

insulted. I had $50 in my pocket earmarked as a donation, but after being met by uncouth and xenophobic staff I decided to take my donation elsewhere. I am an avid cat lover, and seeing a poor caged cat breaks my heart. But being met by the staff in a rude and discriminatory fashion took away all my desire to donate and collect donations in my workplace. I hope other benefactors, especially with perfect, unaccented English, will be met with some courtesy, otherwise, good luck with your recent campaign to raise money. A copy of the e-mail is going to “Belleville News,” because their big article “Quinte Humane Society needs your help” prompted me to attempt to donate, so the people who do not speak perfect English will be warned: Quinte Humane Society does need help, but not from them. Irina Polechuk, Belleville

A sad state of affairs By Terry Bush EMC Editorial - While reading a report from the MNR last week about two Tweed men who thought it might be fun to do a little bass fishing in the dead of winter, I had to wonder, just how often does this actually happen? At $500 per fish, these two gentlemen won’t be in a hurry to do any more out of season angling, but who’s to say others aren’t doing this very same thing every day of the week. After all, there aren’t that many Conservation Officers (COs) left in the province to keep an eye on things. This pair of law breakers were caught only because a helicopter landed where they were fishing and a canine unit found the fish hidden in the snow. You know it’s a pretty sorry state of affairs when there are now fewer COs on the job in this province than there were almost 40 years ago in 1975. The fact that only 200 or so officers are responsible for the enforcement of fishing, hunting and trapping regulations in Canada’s second largest province is ridiculous to say the least especially when you consider that most of our province is crown land. With over 250,000 lakes in the province, it doesn’t take much to do the math. Foresters, biologists, field technicians and administrative staff have been cut as well. At the same time, Ontario’s population has grown by leaps and bounds from a little over eight million people in 1975, to around 13.5 million today. That’s a lot of increased pressure on the province’s wildlife with an everdiminishing MNR budget available for enforcement. While many of these recent immigrants to Ontario have settled in urban areas such as Toronto, they do enjoy getting out on the weekends. Much of the world doesn’t offer the same outdoor opportunities as this great land of ours. In fact, hunting for many was a pursuit only the rich were able to partake in. And in many poor countries, people keep every fish they catch just to feed their families. Old habits die hard. If you don’t have the staff to educate people and enforce the rules, how do you stop people from breaking them. As one recently retired Conservation Officer put it, “When you consider that the Ministry of Natural Resources and the Ministry of the Environment’s combined cost to taxpayers is less than one per cent of the total provincial budget, it leaves one scratching one’s head why a bit of extra money cannot be found for either agency. What we are not told is that the dollars traditionally provided to natural resources budgets have been shrinking. “MNR is a field level organization that puts staff on the ground to do their work. That means it needs boats, motors, aircraft and vehicles plus a budget for fuel to get the work done. In an effort to maintain adequate funding support to field staff, MNR has found it necessary to delay the filling of many vacancies or permanently delete positions caused by retirements. In that way, dollars formerly assigned to support those positions can be reallocated to prop up funding shortfalls for staff still trying to get the work done.” The largest share of tax dollars available in any provincial budget always finds its way to the big three, education, health and security (policing). That’s what the general public wants and any government in power will always try to give the voters what they consider most important. The great outdoors is often taken for granted especially when decisions are made by city dwellers who may or may not even realize that there is life beyond the Big Smoke and the Muskokas. Some COs feel the writing is already on the wall. Many predict that the Ministry of Natural Resources will cease to become a field organization and more and more of its work will be farmed out to the private sector like forest management companies who oversee operations in crown forests. The worry is always there that this could turn out to be a case of the fox guarding the henhouse. As more and more species become “at risk” in the province and more and more folks take to the outdoors especially since the advent of the ATV, more dollars should be finding their way into the MNR budget. If the province in its infinite wisdom can afford to pay people over 80 cents per kilowatt hour to provide solar power to Hydro One who then sells it back to us for a fraction of that price, surely some money can be found to ensure that future generations will have the same opportunities to enjoy our natural resources that we have today. To report violations call the MNR TIPS line at 1-877-TIPS-MNR (8477667.) On another note, hats off to local MP Daryl Kramp who has stated he won’t be sending out the Conservatives’ latest Justin Trudeau attack ads to his constituents because he doesn’t believe in personal attacks. Showing a little class is always welcome, especially in the world of politics.

Educator recognized with prestigious award

Mackenzie Bowell Educator his students. “I think students need to believe EMC News - Belleville of the Year Award recipient, For Johan Cooke, 2013 being an educator is all about they are unique and that they are valuable within themselves,” Cooke said. “I think a lot of students are trying so hard, especially when they’re coming into Grade Nine, to be like someone else, to impress people, to be what they think the other kids want them to be. It’s very hard for them to be comfortable with “Fireplace Showroom” who they are.” Cooke, the principal of Quinte Christian High School, was honoured at a special ceremony on Monday, May 6, where he was on hand to receive his Currently Heating with award. Cooke has spent the past 34 years at the school, becoming principal Reduce Your Heating Costs in 1999.

them grow and develop.” Grade 12 student Andrew Bootsma was one of the people who helped nominate Cooke, and said that when he first heard of the award it seemed like a no-brainer that his principal should receive it. Over the years, Bootsma explained that he and Cooke had formed a strong personal bond, which to Bootsma was something he truly valued. “He trusts me, and he accepts me even when I’m not perfect,” Bootsma said. “It’s really inspirational to me.” During his tenure, Cooke became known for bringing both innovation and excitement to his students, including introducing an annual trip to

Halifax where he works alongside students and volunteer parents performing a variety of volunteer activities, including working in soup kitchens. When asked if he had any advice for other educators trying to follow in his footsteps, his answer once again came back to his students. “Value each student for who they are, no matter how difficult, no matter how bad the behaviour,” he said. “If you can kind of connect with their heart a little bit, if you can let them know that you genuinely care about them as a human being, it seems to make a difference, and when I think back to when I was that age I know it would have made a difference to me.”

THE HISTORY OF 4-H It Started with a Single Seed 4-H started in the United States in 1901 with a single seed; well technically a bag of seeds but a single seed has that wow factor we’re going for. President Orwell of the Farmer’s Institute of Macoupin County, Missouri offered local boys a bag of corn seed to grow and show at the St. Louis Fair in the hope of establishing a youth component in the agriculture sector. Over 500 boys requested seed in this season making Orwell’s concept a roaring success. School authorities, parents, and the agriculture industry revered this simple idea and it sparked the 4-H movement. 4-H came to Canada in 1913 where it found its first home in Roland, Manitoba. The Department of Agriculture donated one dozen purebred poultry eggs, purebred potatoes and seed to Manitoba youth for them to raise and grow over a period of several months. During this time a Club organizer checked on the boys and girls and provided them with information to help them get the best outcome for their crops and poultry. This initiative began the Boys’and Girls’club, which was a predecessor of 4-H. This club established many of the concepts that are still involved in 4-H today including:

• Age regulations • Members complete a project • Members are guided by a leader who supervises them and provides constructive feedback • The project is presented at an achievement day • The program should develop agriculture and homemaking / life skills Within this club the concept of “Learn To Do By Doing”was also born. The entire premise of the club was learning through youth engagement and hands on involvement. Although the official 4-H motto was not established until 1952, the basis for the 4-H learning approach was well underway. Folks were noticing the positive impact the Boys’and Girls’club was producing for youth in their local areas. The large success of the program in Manitoba combined with a movement that focused on formal agriculture education for youth caused the Boys’and Girls’club to spread across the country. Ontario clubs mimicked Manitoba’s club mentality and guidelines which furthered the “Learn To Do By Doing”learning approach and club structure Ontario celebrates their 100th anniversary in 2015. With the help of Volunteer Leader Christina Ingram of Frankford the Hasting 4-H celebrated the Anniversary of 100 years of 4-H Canada with a birthday cake at their Annual General Meeting. .

Discovering Aboriginal teachings through art and nature


EMC Lifestyles - It was cold at the Frink Centre conservation area on April 20. Thirty-two early learning professionals, artists, storyteller and guide had gathered for Come Walk in My Moccasins, a professional development event exploring Aboriginal teachings through art and nature. Small squares of icy snow bounced from our winter-weight jackets and blankets that some had wrapped around their shoulders. Participants and presenters cradled steaming cups of coffee in their hands and ate fruit-laden bannock around the campfire while Sarah Brown, Aboriginal Family Literacy Circle member, shared an opening in Mohawk expressing thanks for all of creation, and leading us in a smudge. “We gather in a circle,” explained Sarah, “because when we are in a circle we are face to face. No one is above or below another. We are all equal. Using the circle in our work with children is one way we can help them learn respect for one another.” Maureen Walton, artist and storyteller, deepened our understanding of the four directions and the elements of earth, wind, fire and water these directions symbolize. She then told us the oral story of “The Sky Woman.” While we listened, we handled small balls of clay, experientially grounding us in the element of earth. Afterward, inside the pavilion, four artists shared their unique expressions of Aboriginal culture. Rebecca Maracle, a feather-smith from Tyendinaga demonstrated the interplay of teachings, nature and art through her passionate words and her intricate feather pictures and jewellery. Will Fisher, a stone carver from Tyendinaga, helped us glimpse the depth of his connection to nature, the four directions, and his respect for all of creation through his exquisite and expressive carvings from stone. AJ VanDrie, whose art studio is in Codrington, Ontario, spoke of the meaning of colour, light, shapes, and line through

his Woodland style paintings. On canvas and on small rocks, AJ’s work revealed an authenticity and beauty of experience, culture, and sense of self in relation to others. Casandra Asselstine, an Algonquin native from Sharbot Lake, Ontario, shared how she creatively and artistically expresses her Aboriginal heritage through graphic design and watercolour paintings. Participants at Come Walk in My Moccasins also took part in a guided hike with Mary Tiessen. Mary taught us to be open to discovery of Mother Earth by showing us techniques to use with children. She helped us see with owl eyes, listen with deer ears, and walk with quiet fox footsteps, and gave us the opportunity to share meaningful discoveries about the sights, sounds, smells and feel of nature. We had begun our morning together in a circle around the campfire. Our morning ended

similarly in a circle of inclusion as Sharon from Katarokwi Native Friendship Centre led us in the Travelling Song, a song that brings together the sounds common to all languages and people. Despite the cold and dampness, reaction to Come Walk in My Moccasins was warm. As one participant expressed, “I have learned so much about how to incorporate First Nations practices and nature into my work with children. I feel inspired by the passion of the artists.” Thanks to the HastingsPrince Edward Children’s Services Network for funding this event and to the Aboriginal Family Literacy Circle Cherilyn Eves from Lamplighter Preschool (left) Kerri Smart from Tahatikonhsotontie Head Start (centre), and Kayla Brant members for creating, plan- from Aboriginal Healthy Babies (right) are on the guided walk at Come Walk in My Moccasins event held on April 20 at the Frink ning and supporting this op- Centre, Belleville, Ontario. portunity of learning.

EMC Entertainment - Belleville - All across Canada on Monday, May 6, schools and communities from coast to coast celebrated Music Monday, an initiative created by the Canadian Coalition for Music Education to promote the importance of music education in schools. Not to be left out, the students and faculty at St. Theresa Secondary School in Belleville held a morning-long celebration of musical talent from within their own walls, showcasing past and present students in all their musical glory. “[The goal] is really to bring music to the forefront,” said

principal Carey Smith-Dewey. “We have so many talented people in our building that we really wanted to showcase their abilities and give them an opportunity to show their peers their strengths in that area, and really celebrate the arts.” Featuring a little bit of everything musical, the morning event featured solo performers, group performances, bands and more, in a mix of vocal and instrumental performances. St. Theresa has participated in Music Monday in years past as well, but Smith-Dewey said this year was a little more focussed on the students that attended St. Theresa. “Just as it’s important to help

“Just as it’s important to help students academically, it’s also important to show them that we value their abilities and the fact that they have some strengths in some areas that sometimes you can’t show on pen and paper.” At noon, Canadian Astronaut Chris Hadfield was scheduled to lead thousands of people across the country in song from orbit, singing a song co-written by members of the Barenaked Ladies. The broadcast will mark Hadfield’s last before returning home from the International Space Station. “[We want students to] recognize their peers in different ways … they pass them in the hallways and maybe they don’t know a whole lot about them. This is a way for them to be able to showcase their abilities and also to see each other in a different light,” Smith-Dewey said. “We’re always looking for ways to be able to recognize students and to see their potential, and I think this is a safe place for them to be able to do that.”

EMC Lifestyles - Stirling - Maia Heissler remembers quite clearly how the idea behind her Forest Friends creations struck her, and it was on a walk along a busy city street. Reflecting on the childlike curiosity some maintain throughout their lives, Heissler says she has always appreciated the opportunity “of introducing children to the world.” And being a large part of her sons’ young lives, she adds, was no different. But it was Alexander, the oldest, who might be credited with making the original discovery that led, thanks to boundless imaginations, to virtual villages of Forest Friends. “There was a pair of maple keys lying on a city street,” she says, “and it was just something we noticed during our walk.” For a young mind craving a more fantastical explanation, they were quite obviously a pair of fairy wings. Not long after, in early 1987, Heissler created the first of what would become a growing population of “little people in a big world,” often placed in elaborate scenes made almost entirely of materials found, uncovered and sought out during regular walks in the woods. With a growing family of their own, Heissler, and husband Peter Ferri, moved from Mississauga to an old farmhouse outside Frankford that offered an endless supply of artistic material and inspiration. And, she says, there is very much an earthbased spirituality to her finished works which have become a natural extension of her lifelong enjoyment

Frankford artist Maia Heissler has been creating Forest Friends for more than 15 years and their popularity continues to grow. Some examples of her work are on display at the Stirling-Rawdon Public Library.

Mastersons, featuring husband and wife duet Chris Masterson and Eleanor Whitmore, who performed a short and compelling set that showed off their exceptional musicianship before returning to the stage with Earle and the rest of the Dukes. With a collection of instruments at the side of the stage, Earle went on to delight the crowd, switching between guitars, mandolins and banjoes, adding a rare moment at the piano, with nearly three hours of music that spanned his career; he slipped effortlessly from blues to folk to bluegrass to rock, and reflected on the current state of affairs. And sometimes itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not pretty. The world is facing difficult and unpredictable economic times, Earle told the crowd, adding conditions today are not so different as they were in The Depression days Woody Guthrie wrote about. And, â&#x20AC;&#x153;we choose what we want to see,â&#x20AC;? he says. But there are still reasons for optimism, he adds, as long as people are willing to open their eyes. And ears. Earle offered plenty of reasons to listen, playing alongside what he described as the best band he has ever taken on tour.


EMC Entertainment - Belleville Steve Earle has seen a lot of the world and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s written about it for most of his life. He knows loneliness and desperation and he knows compassion and community. And he just might be the last of the hard-core troubadours. It was a highly appreciative crowd who greeted veteran musician Steve Earle last week when he arrived at the sold-out Empire Theatre for his lone eastern Canadian stop on a tour that extends to the UK, Scandinavia and Europe before returning to North America in July.

Antique Outboard Motor Club has power to spare

By Kate Everson

EMC News - Quinte West - A display at the Kiwanis Walleye World Fishing Derby wasn’t just a bunch of old motors. The Antique Outboard Motor Club had a collection of vintage machines, perfectly cleaned and polished for the show. “My favourite is the fifty-six Johnson,” said Gary Carlton of Wooler, a collector and member of the Antique

Outboard Motor Club. He restored the 1961 cedar strip boat that it was on. He had a display with Dave Teasdale of several outboards dating as far back as 1914. “My favourite is the next one,” Teasdale said with a smile. Teasdale admitted he has collected about 200 motors kept in three buildings and parts all over his yard on his property east of Belleville.

“We hate to give them up,” he said. “We trade back and forth with other collectors.” The club has about 200 members across Canada and 2,000 in the United States. The club web site at <www.> contains a growing reference library of antique outboards. “We don’t have meetings or anything like that,” says Gary Carlton. Carlton adds they don’t have strict

criteria what constitutes an antique like they do with other collectors. “Any old ones will do,” Dave Teasdale said. “You can tell if they’re old because they are all metal, no plastic or fibreglass parts.” Dave is also proprietor of Kamibri Marine Enterprises at 4852 Old Highway 2 East of Belleville. The Maple Leaf Chapter of the club is the Canadian chapter, with mainly Ontario members from the camps and cottages of the prov-

ince’s many lakes. It is one of the largest chapters and most are from southern Ontario. Meets are held in January, April, May and September where members buy, sell, trade and run old outboards and sometimes put on technical workshops. The chapter also puts on a number of displays at various shows where the public can view the motors and ask questions. Some just like to reminisce. Contact <> to find out more about the club.

Auto show crowds exceed expectations By Richard Turtle

EMC News - Stirling - With a commitment to keep the Annual Automotive Flea Market in Stirling, local agricultural society officials were thrilled with the weekend results of their efforts after thousands of visitors arrived to satisfy all their driving desires. The show and sale of automobiles, parts and related accessories originally started in Spring Brook as a fund raiser for the Antique Automobile Club of America (AACA) eastern region who then moved to Stirling for the ensuing 40 years. But with organizers announcing this year’s AACA show’s move to Lindsay, the Stirling Agricultural Society vowed to keep the crowds coming to the fairgrounds here. And with more than 500 vendor spaces rented, well over 100 display vehicles crowding the parking lot in front of the arena and automotive deals both inside and out, about 8,000 visitors passed through the gates during the weekend ensuring there will be a next year for the popular event. Along with cars and parts dating from the present to the early days of the automobile, there were T-shirts, hats and clothing, models and toys and products and services of all

mechanical descriptions. Tarps, seemingly strewn with scrap metal to the uneducated eye, proved a treasure trove for enthusiasts, collectors and restorers many of whom spent hours combing through the hundreds of sites laid out both beside and behind the community centre. Arena Manager Richard Dean says the annual crowdpleaser, which was also housed in the adjoining curling club, was another big success for organizers and saw steady traffic all weekend. But with pending arena improvements slated to begin soon, he says there are some significant changes in store before similar crowds return to the fairgrounds for the 155th Stirling Fair in August. “That’s what we’re doing this summer,” he notes. But in Stirling during the first weekend in May, it’s still all about cars. “We’re really happy,” said SAS President Jason Detlor as the show wound down Sunday afternoon. Attendance was exceptional, he says, and after its first year running the show the society is confident of its longterm future. “We wanted to keep the dollars local,” Detlor says of the decision to host this year’s show on the same weekend as the Lindsay event. And by all

Stirling was the unquestionable favourite. Agricultural Society supporters were joined by members of the Hastings County 4-H Club, Stirling and District Lions and Royal Canadian Legion Branch

descended on the fairgrounds, under clear blue skies and unseasonably warm temperatures, to keep the traffic flowing smoothly and steadily. Vendors were also pleased with the weekend crowds, the

venue and the weather, with many claiming record sales and a picture perfect weekend of mechanical sights and sounds for all ages and interests. Visitors to the show, including residents from nearby communities as well as Ottawa and Kingston, expressed their relief

the annual event was staying where it grew up. About 5,000 people arrived through the gates on Saturday, Detlor says, and even at its peak there was ample space available for all their needs, offering more reason for optimism the show will continue to grow in the years ahead.




Stirling Agricultural Society volunteers Tina and Kylie Spooner were among the dozens of volunteers who kept the large crowds happy and well fed during the car show in Stirling last weekend.

The Golden Jet returns

By Steve Jessel

EMC Sports - Belleville Sunny skies and warm weather provided the perfect backdrop for the second annual Soccer Skills Development Family Fun Day hosted by the Quinte Old Boys Soccer Club, and special guest Bobby Hull proved a popular attraction for both young and old looking for an autograph from one of the greatest hockey players to ever play the game. “We’re excited, and very happy with the turnout,” said Quinte Old Boys president Romano Digenova.

The purpose of the event was to raise funds for two local autism charities and to help raise awareness of the disorder. The two chosen organizations to benefit from the day’s proceeds were Kerry’s Place and Adam’s Hope, and while Digenova said they hadn’t set any kind of fund-raising goal, every cent makes a difference. “I hope this money will benefit and raise hope, and continue research,” Digenova said. While soccer skills training, silent auctions and giveaways were all part of the

one should be supporting, and I felt really really pleased to be able to do that today,” Kramp said, adding that he used to play softball against Hull in his youth. “We’re a caring, sharing community, and every time we do something … where we’re helping people, it’s always a phenomenal turnout, so it makes me proud to be able to represent that.” Smith was equally generous with his praise about the event and the cause it was raising money for, but said he also had an ulterior motive for attending the event. “I’m a big hockey fan, my daughters both play hockey, and Bobby Hull is one of the greatest hockey players to ever play the game and he’s from Belleville,” Smith said. “I just think it’s fantastic that [Hull] is coming back to Belleville to help raise money for a very worthy cause, and it’s great to be here to support him and get an autographed picture too.” Smith got his wish, proudly displaying his autographed photo, and he was far from the only one.

Fire Training Centre raising funds for expansion EMC News - Trenton - The fire training complex is in need of an upgrade. “It’s been here 28 years,” says Chuck Naphan, president of Mutual Aid for Hastings and Prince Edward Counties and chair of the facility. “There are new demands to stay current,” he said. “We need to add to the facility and update it.” The fire training complex serves 18 municipalities and 54 fire stations, with over 1,000 members, volunteer and career firefighters.

“We need a larger building for our life safety vehicles and fire trucks,” he said. “Currently we are paying storage. Fire trucks ain’t cheap to store.” The Hastings and Prince Edward Counties Mutual Fire Aid Association is raising funds for the first time to expand their facility and to support the life safety committee. “There is a constant demand for public education,” Naphan says. “We go into all the schools in Hastings and Prince Edward. We have Sparky and the smoke trailer. Kids learn not to burn.” There is a new mothers pro-

gram out now that teaches fire prevention in the home. The package is free and shows mothers how to teach their child at home what to do in case of a fire. The fund raiser is a raffle for a 2013 Ford Lariat from Lange and Fetter Motors worth about $60,000. Tickets are $100 each and only 2,500 tickets will be sold. The draw will be held December 1, 2013, at 5 p.m. at Lange and Fetter on Dundas Street West in Trenton. “The truck has eco-boost, six cylinders, leather seats, satellite, back-up camera,” Naphan said.

Northumberland Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first residential hospice prepared for the day it would begin receiving people nearing the end of their life by training more than 100 volunteers to provide care at the home and to maintain the building.

Dr. Henderson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to have such a demand on a few that they eventually arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t able to do it anymore.â&#x20AC;? By distributing the workload among many, â&#x20AC;&#x153;they wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find it too onerous a task.â&#x20AC;? The Bridge Hospice held

its third annual walk-a-thon Saturday morning, with two dozen people taking part to raise money to go toward its operating costs, which include two staff members, an executive director and administrative assistant. The provincial government has not committed money to its operations, although it does support hospices elsewhere in Ontario. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The budget at this point is something in the range of about $100,000 to $120,000 a year,â&#x20AC;? Dr. Henderson said. The hospice did receive word last week that the Harold E. Ballard Foundation will provide $20,000 for capital improvements. Dr. Robert Stephens, chair of the major sponsors subcommittee, said the money will be used to help finish work the non-profit organization didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have funds to complete before.

EMC Sports - Belleville - For more than 35 years the Belleville Bulldogs have been playing competitive rugby in Belleville, and with the 2013 season getting ready to kick off this month club president Josh Chambers is raring to get started. “We’re very much looking forward to the 2013 campaign from all of our teams, it’s going to be a great summer of rugby and it should be a lot of fun for the Belleville and Quinte communities,” Chambers said. Registration is now ongoing for the 2013 season, and the Belleville Bulldogs have a team for almost every age group. Roughly eight different teams will take the field this summer, ranging in age from as young as eight to as old as 60, and Chambers said that’s one of the major draws of the sport. “It’s just a game for all ages, and it’s a lot of fun in a competitive nature,” Chambers said. Recently, the club has seen quite a bit of growth, especially among youth. There’s no denying rugby can be a rough sport, however, below a certain age no contact is allowed. Once youth hit high school age, only then do coaches begin proper training on how to hit and how to be safe on the field. “Rugby in this area, and all over the province, it’s a growing sport,” Chambers said. “It seems like every year we’re able to add more teams ... it’s phenomenal the amount of boys and girls that are getting involved with the sport.”

On Saturday, May 11, the club will hold a registration event from 2 to 4 p.m. at Mary-Anne Sills Park in Belleville. This also coincides with the season opener for the women’s and men’s teams, who will take the field at 12 and 1:30 p.m., against the Mississauga Blues and the Toronto Saracens, respectively. Meanwhile, there will also be a registration and open trial for U15 and U16 boys at Quinte Secondary School on Sunday,

May 12. Registration is from 1:30 to 2 p.m., and the trial is from 2 to 3:30 p.m. A Minis touch program also runs from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Mary-Anne Sills Park every Sunday until June 23. The final registration date for all teams is on Saturday, May 25, at the Quinte Sports and Wellness Centre. No experience is required. For more information, visit the Bulldogs web site at < index.php?league=230>.

Walleye weighs in at a whopping 11.92 pounds By Kate Everson

EMC Sports - Quinte West - The winner of the top prize in the Trenton Kiwanis Walleye World Fishing Derby was a team effort. “Everyone co-operated,” said Rob Wengel from Ottawa who won the senior walleye prize of a boat and motor with an 11.92 walleye out of Picton. “One of us drives the boat, one catches the fish and the other one nets it,” Wengel said. “It was a team effort.” Wengel will sell the prize worth $16,999 three ways. “It’s all about having fun,” he added. “We didn’t come to win big.” His partners Rob Lafferty and Ed Turpin are both from Trenton. Wengel is also from Trenton, in the military, and just got posted to Ottawa last year. “I’ve been fishing with Rob for years,” said Wengel. “We won the first prize in 2009 as well.” Ed Turpin said the secret of catching the big one is to find the fish and stay on it. They fished all night long off of Picton and caught the winner at 2:40 a.m. “It takes luck and patience,” Wengel said. The derby also gave out

prizes for senior pike but the winner Sean Robinson did not show up to claim his boat and motor on Sunday. His 13.44-pound pike topped the charts. “I think he’s still out fishing,” said Kevin Weaver, at the tent with chair Remco De Gooyer. “Somebody should tell him he can come in now; he won!” The junior division was well attended with children picking up their prizes of bicycles and fishing poles. Braeden Palmer from Kingston got tops for junior pike at 10.05 pounds. Tynika Williams caught the biggest walleye at 8.84 pounds. The results are all posted on the <> web site which has been keeping a running tally throughout the derby which started at midnight Friday night through to 4 p.m. on Sunday. The 33rd annual event is a major fund raiser for the Trenton Kiwanis Club. They also donated $750 to Quinte Sailability, presented by president Dino Leone to “Fletch” at the closing. Kevin Weaver noted there were 13 weigh stations around the Bay of Quinte Please see “One” on page B9 Winner of the senior walleye was Rob Wengel with his partners Ed Turpin (with son Ty) and Rob Lafferty from Trenton.

Flashing for cache By Ray Yurkowski

EMC News - Brighton - Other than the sounding of an air horn to get under way, Brighton quietly took its place last weekend in a worldwide event. And it was all over in 15 minutes. The event: a gathering of geocachers for the 10th annual World Wide Flash Mob at global positioning system (GPS) co-ordinates N044 02.525 W077 44.341 (also known as Memorial Park). “May the 4th be with you,” was this year’s catch phrase as hundreds of local mobs were organized around the globe for the first Saturday in May. The Brighton event was one of 556 events in 42 countries. The local scrum, which attracted about 50 enthusiasts, was the brainchild of Joe Towes. Her first venture into the hobby was about three years ago when, after some basic online research, she armed herself with a smartphone and shovel and walked into a graveyard to find her first cache. “It was a pretty funny picture at the time,” said Towes. “But now I know so much more about it.” For the uninitiated, geocaching is a high-tech treasure hunt game. Par-

ticipants, equipped with GPS devices, play by locating hidden containers using the co-ordinates listed on a geocaching web site. “It’s a great way to explore locations, near and far,” touts the official hobby web site. “With a million hidden worldwide, there are geocaches for every type of adventurer to find. The GPS device will navigate you close to the cache, but once you’re there, you’ll have to discover it on your own. And they can be very cleverly hidden.” Once found, gamers sign a logbook and the rule of thumb is; if you take something, you are expected to leave an item of equal or greater value for the next treasure hunter to find. The cache is then replaced exactly as found and the experience is logged on the web site. Anyone can use the co-ordinates. All you need is a free, basic membership and a GPS device or smartphone. “We use billion-dollar satellites to find Tupperware in the woods,” said Towes, with a laugh. “It’s a great fami- About 50 geocachers showed up at Memorial Park in Brighton last weekend in support of a local contribution to the 10th annual World Wide Flash Mob. ly activity.

“Stars of the Festival” marks annual competition

B2 EMC B Section - Thursday, May 9, 2013



By Richard Turtle

EMC News - Stirling - Organizers of the Stirling Festival of Sacred Praise are encouraging members of the public to attend their upcoming Stars of the Festival concert celebrating some of the top performers from the two-week long competition. The annual musical festival, which features classes in various disciplines ranging from instrumental to vocal, has long been an avenue for youngsters to share their talents, says Festival President Donna Russett, and was once again well attended. “The numbers were down a little bit, but not too much below last year, so overall it was very good,” she says, noting several youth choirs were unable to participate this year but are expected to return. Held at St. Paul’s United Church as well as the Stirling Festival Theatre, this year’s festival ran from April 21 to May 1, and will conclude with the Stars concert next Friday (May 10) beginning at 7 p.m. Tickets are $3 for adults and 50 cents for children. “We had some excellent adjudicators again this year,” she says of Jarred Dunn, Lance Ouellette, Natalie Pratt and the Reverend Rodney Smith, adding they provide encouraging and helpful advice to all performers. While many enjoy music as a creative pastime, others have gone on from the festival to pursue musical careers. In recent years the festival has been a member of OFMA, allowing competitors to move on to a higher level of competition. The depth of musical talent here particularly among the youth, Russett says, always proves a pleasant surprise for visiting adjudicators and audience members. Following the Stars of the Festival concert, which will also include the presentation of several festival awards, organizers are also hosting an upcoming scholarship Please see “Members” on page B3

Surf ’n’ Turf perfect for true fitness test EMC Sports - Anyone wishing to give themselves a true physical challenge will likely want to take part in this year’s Surf and Turf Challenge at CFB Trenton June 7. Open to everyone, this competition is an eight-leg cross-country fitness challenge involving running, cycling, canoeing and swimming over 60 kilometres of terrain spanning the Quinte West community. Participant involvement includes: Single competitors, or Tinmen; team pairings, or Tinmates or teams consisting of an eight-person race crew. Organizers this year hope to see the largest turnout in the event’s 26-year history. They are hoping for at least 750 competitors, hundreds of spectators and teams from across Canada. “We are improving on the event from last year,” noted event spokesperson Captain Pierre-Luc Verreault. “We have changed some of the transition to ensure a better flow and intersection signs will be clearer to avoid any confusion.” At the same time, organizers have increased the length of the canoe/kayak leg of the competition by one kilometre so that it now goes around the Trent Bridge on Highway 2. They have also enhanced the cross-country run to make it a true five-kilometre competition. Another goal of this year’s competition Surf ’n’ Turf competitors will compete in running, cycling, canoeing and is to strengthen community ties, according swimming events over 60 kilometres of terrain spanning the Quinte West to Captain Verreault.

“We want to make this a real community gathering event and strengthen our ties with the local businesses and employers,” he told The Contact. As always, funds raised from this event go to assist the Military Family Resource Centre (MFRC) at CFB Trenton. The Trenton MFRC provides services and resources that support the well-being of military families serving at 8 Wing/CFB Trenton. Military families includes all military, regular force or reservist, and

their parents and close relatives. The race itself is designed to demonstrate the importance of camaraderie, community involvement and friendship while supporting military members and their families. The race has grown each year of its existence. Unique to CFB Trenton, this race will also be open to the general public.

Dogs die in house fire were able to extinguish the blaze in less than two hours. The Squires Road resident, Caddick says, had left to run a quick errand and inadvertently left the burner on. Nobody was home at the time of the fire, Caddick adds, and a pair of dogs were unable to escape. “It’s accidental for sure,” he says, noting it is also a stark reminder of

the importance of constant fire safety and awareness. More than 30 Stirling-Rawdon firefighters and a full complement of equipment attacked the evening fire “and they did a bang-up job,” Caddick says, noting it was an older two-storey structure that did sustain significant damage.

Help send a girl in Nepal to school

EMC Events - Sometimes, people just don’t know what their purpose is in life. And sometimes they find out. For Laura Levtov of Madoc, a lifelong passion for

teaching children, in her case figure skating, has taken her halfway around the world. Laura’s son Mark was involved with the World Youth

Summit and ended up in Nepal where he met a local man, Jimmy Lama, whose mission is to educate local children. Though he could have found a high pay-

ing job anywhere in the world, Laura’s son decided Nepal was the place for him. As most mothers would, if they have the means, Laura visited her son and being the athletic type decided to climb to Mount Everest base camp when given the opportunity. Soon, she was made well aware of the plight of girls in that country. Children are no different in Nepal than other countries, they all have a thirst for knowledge. Unfortunately, they aren’t as fortunate as children are in the west especially if they’re female. If they’re lucky, they can attend school up to Grade 5 in their village. To go on, the children have to move to a bigger village to attend Grades 5 to 10 which is where the school system ends for most students unless they are lucky enough to have a scholar-

ship to attend Grades 11 and 12 paving the way for university. Not many children have that option in a third world country. As part of the grand opening of a school, Laura, through her husband, David’s power skating academy in Toronto, sent the money to plant apple trees to supplement the children’s diet of rice and beans. The next year, three staff members of the academy travelled to the country. One was a high school teacher who helped Jimmy Lama set up a school system. The next plan is to set up a hostel/school which will house, students, classrooms and volunteers. To achieve that goal, a fund raiser will be held in Madoc on Saturday, May 11, at the Kiwanis Centre on St. Lawrence Street. This event, catering to women,

will feature yoga and meditation instructors from Toronto (bring your own mat), breakfast and a live video feed from Nepal with Buddhist nun Amara Maharja who is involved with the school program, Jimmy Lama and hopefully a girl saved from being sold last year after her mother agreed to accept a school scholarship for her daughter. The event is sponsored by Laura’s husband’s power skating academy Freedom on Ice, Nepal and runs from 8 until 11 a.m. The hope is that a minimum donation of $50 per person will go a long way toward sending a girl to school. It costs only $2,500 per year to send ten girls to school including their room and board and Laura is hopeful she will reach her goal. Tickets are available by calling Laura Levtov at 613-473-4588.

days of the week, except at a couple of the 17 designated stations: the whirlpool (34C) and exercise (28C) baths. The more modern Caracalla Spa, opened in 1985, has therapeutic waters that range from 18C to 38C, massage jets, both indoor and outdoor pools, both hot- and cold-water grottos, a brine inhalation room, a steam bath, a solarium, an aroma sauna, a wellness room, and relaxation loungers. Since Baden-Baden is well known as a spa town, I expected it to be very pricey, and, indeed, I found some highend shopping on Sophienstrasse, and I discovered that the renowned casino catered to the rich and well groomed, for I even had to wear a tie and jacket just to enter the place. However, I also discovered that Baden-Baden’s spa facilities were very reasonably priced, for a three-hour “Basic Package” at Friedrichsbad was 23 EUR and a two-hour visit to the Caracalla Spa was only 14 EUR, and I was able to get a reasonably priced meal in the Caracalla Spa’s Therman Restaurant. I was also able to find some reasonably priced products, made with BadenBaden thermal water, in its Caracalla Shop, to bring back for my wife. My visit to the spa was both relaxing and rejuvenating, a definite highlight. However, Baden-Baden certainly has much more to offer, too, including several fascinating museums and delectable restaurants, Lichtenthal Abbey (founded in 1245), Brahms’ House, Iffezeim Racecourse, Merkur Mountain (reached via the Merkur funicular), and the Festspielhaus (Europe’s second largest opera and concert hall). However, my very favourite activity of them all was sim-

ply my walk along BadenBaden’s Lichtentaler Allee, for this is a nature lover’s paradise, an oasis of peace and tranquility and right in town! I found it to be a very relaxing and yet eyepopping experience (with many photo-ops). I wandered through the town’s Cultural Mile, past the Frieder Burda Museum and the Stadtmuseum, and I then found myself surrounded by parkland as I headed east, along what appeared to be a little brook (the Oos River), with its quaint, picturesque, pedestrian bridges. I passed the luxurious Brenner’s Park-Hotel & Spa along the way, and Germany’s oldest tennis club, founded here in 1881, and then I arrived at the Gon-

neranlage, a beautiful rose garden, with magnificent floral displays, manicured lawns, decorative sculptures, and large fountain. I was enjoying this “stroll through the park” so much that I decided to continue to the east end of Lichtentaler Allee, where I checked out the abbey itself, where both guided tours and guestrooms are available. I then simply strolled back into the downtown core and returned to my accommodations at the Hotel Merkur. Baden-Baden, <www.>, is located near the French border, in the southwestern foothills of Germany’s Black Forest area, and it’s definitely worth a visit.

baths, a spa town, and even back at the time of the Holy Roman Empire, the bath-conscious Roman Emperor Caracalla had visited this area to ease his arthritis. In the 19th century, the Prussian Queen visited to improve her health, and several of the rich and famous began to refer to it as “the European summer capital.” Queen Victoria, Wilhelm I, Mark Twain, Johannes Brahms, Ivan Turgenev, Fyodor Dostoevsky, and Napoleon Bonaparte all enjoyed not only its spas but also its beautiful gardens, luxury hotels, horse races, and highend casino.

However, you certainly must visit a spa in this spa town, and the two main destinations are Caracalla (where you’ll wear a bathing suit to swim) and Friedrichsbad (where you’ll be nude). This latter spa was built in the mid 19th century

The five love languages of moms

EMC Lifestyles - This Sunday, moms everywhere will be awakened by little feet carrying trays of soggy cereal and cold toast. It’s Mother’s Day! And that means a $6 card gushing about mom is absolutely mandatory,

The Good Earth: EMC Lifestyles - Something happened over the winter, quietly and without your conscious realisation. Your garden tools changed. The hedging shears became much heavier than you remembered, the edges on your shovel became so blunt that you have to use it upside down as a seed drill, 40 per cent of the tines on your hard back rake have moved to hillbilly country where there is a high demand for strong teeth, and your pruning shears have lost their spring, including the third set of spares you bought last September. There’s more, much more, Gentle Reader, but too much bad humour will leave you in bad humour and that won’t do. People in good humour are more likely to write a letter to the editor stating that the gardening columnist should be paid a premium. People in bad humour are more likely to be called “Eeyore.” By now, the garden sheds have been opened up, all the contents spread out across the yard, insides swept out and

thor of the best selling book The Five Love Languages, each of us has a preferred love language—the love language in which we feel loved. Some of us certainly love Gifts. We love receiving them because we feel as if the person has thought of us, and sacrificed for us. Others of us lean more toward the language of Physical Touch. We love holding hands, or cuddling on the couch, or getting fingers through our hair. Some of us prefer Acts of Service, when someone does the dishes so that we can relax. If hubby put up a set of shelves to display some new family photographs, that would put us over the moon. Still others lean toward Words of Affirmation, where people tell us what they appreciate most about us. Finally, there’s Quality Time. We just plain love spending hours with those we love—going for a

drive, playing a board game, going for a hike and talking. When people set aside time for us, we feel cherished. And here’s the clincher: because that’s the way we experience love the most, that’s also the way we tend to want to give love. So those who appreciate Words of Affirmation tend to affirm those they love. Those who appreciate Physical Touch tend to touch. But what if a “touchy” person is married to a “service” person? The touchy person could be hugging and touching and caressing galore, but the service person is thinking, “Why doesn’t he ever just put his clothes in the hamper”? Likewise, the touchy person is thinking, “Why doesn’t she ever just hug me when I get in the door?” Of course, you can like a variety of these languages, but most of us have a dominant one. I’m a “Words of Affirmation” gal, and every year I tell my hus-

The right tools

new storage systems have been created. By the way, isn’t it astonishing where mice nest in the winter, where chipmunks stash peanuts and how hard the contents of opened fertiliser boxes get when, really, it’s just sitting there in a dry place? This is the best time to assess your tools. For the moment, don’t think about what you have; think about what you will need. Walk the grounds of your estate and note the upcoming tasks. What tools are best suited to accomplish them? Make notes. When you go back to your collection of tools take out the ones on your new list. What’s left? For example, my list of tasks does not include dethatching my lawn so in my “left” group I have a brand-new, never used, Binford 5000 version of a dethatching rake. It was a great buy at a garden centre “yard sale.” It will be in another yard sale this year. GR, this is the best time to move the surplus tools. The first yard sales will be cluttering up the neigh-

bourhoods this weekend and starryeyed gardeners (the kind who buy dethatching rakes) will be swarming like yellow jackets to soda pop. The next thing to do is sort those tools you will need and assess their condition. By the way, check out your condition, too. I know that in my younger days (and I sure don’t like that phrase one teeny little bit) short handled forks and shovels were easy to use. Now, I find that I prefer a longer handle; I can bend my knees and keep my back straight. We all know that is the way it should have always been done but we also know that young people will wait until they are older to learn that lesson. When you assess your condition, marry the results with the tasks. For example, weeding vegetables with a hoe now presents a physical challenge. Don’t be discouraged and stop growing veggies; consider using straw mulch. Change your gardening para-

digm. Can’t bend down low enough? Raise the beds. You can do everything except turn the soil at the start of the year? Spend a couple of bucks and hire the neighbour’s kid. Think of them as mobile tools. Make them lemonade and chocolate chip cookies and then tell them how it was when you were a kid. When you are buying new tools, it is important to make sure they fit your body. A tool that feels awkward in the store will be almost useless to you in the flowerbed and it will soon find its way to your own yard sale. best comprehensive book, by far, is Number one tool is a good pair of the Practical Guide to Gardening in gloves. Number two is something to Canada. It has everything. The next kneel on; I favour kneepads. Number best, especially for new gardeners, are three is the one you need for your next e-books and one of the best writers out job. there is Doug Green.

Warkworth Lilac Festival a treat for the senses EMC Events - The annual Warkworth Lilac Festival takes place May 25 to June 2 and promises to be a multi-sensory experience! Art aficionados are in for a special treat, with an art show and plein air event by members of Spirit of the Hills-Northumberland Hills Arts Association. Jazz lovers won’t want to miss an evening with Canada’s own Adi Braun at the Warkworth Lilac Festival’s “Jazz at the Lilac Room” on Saturday, May 25. Ms. Braun’s sophisticated style and subtle delivery evokes such vocal greats as Sarah Vaughan and Rosemary Clooney. With a repertoire ranging

band and girls, “Don’t buy me anything for Mother’s Day! Just write me a long letter about what you love about me!” Luckily I’m so wonderful that’s easy for them. My daughters, though, don’t share my love language. One of them veers more toward Quality Time, and the other is super Touchy. I have to go out of my way to be deliberate about not just verbally affirming my girls, as I would naturally do, but also touching Katie, and putting away my computer and talking to Rebecca. We’re all very different. And this Mother’s Day, instead of buying that $6 card and pouring that soggy cereal automatically, maybe it’s time to have a talk whether or not you’re speaking the same love language. Because you don’t want to invest in diamonds if what she really wants is a shelf.

from the great American songbook, to European cabaret, to contemporary, this is sure to be a sold-out performance! Another not to be missed event is the “Love my Shoes” garden party luncheon on June 2; a taste experience only Tina Morrey of On The Side Catering in Warkworth can masterfully create! Canada’s fashion maven, Jeanne Beker is the honorary chair of this event. Sonja Bata, founder of the Bata Shoe Museum, will showcase a selection of “celebrity shoes.” Patrons will be treated to a delicious gourmet luncheon, wine, entertainment and a shoe

fashion show by Town Shoes, all in an exquisite private garden setting. This popular event sells out quickly every year, so reserve your ticket today. See, hear, taste, touch, but above all, smell the fragrant lilacs along the Millennium Trail. The Warkworth Lilac Festival promises to be a truly pleasurable experience that will evoke all the senses! For a full listing of events, please visit <www.>.

along with that perfect gift (hint: the perfect gift does not go in the bathroom and begin with an “S” and end with a “cale”). Personally, I’m not a huge fan of gifts, largely because I spend so much of my energy trying to get rid of stuff. I’m a minimalist at heart who has the number for the Salvation Army pickup on speed dial. In fact, gifts are often a negative for me. If I receive a gift, I always feel like I have to give one back. And I am just simply awful at choosing gifts. But please, don’t assume that just because this lovely columnist eschews diamonds that your wife doesn’t secretly desire some gems. We are all different, and this Mother’s Day, you could earn some major brownie points figuring out exactly what kind of woman your mom, or wife, is. According to Gary Chapman, the au-

Young Company prepares for Cabaret EMC Entertainment Stirling - The Stirling Festival Theatre’s Young Company says it has the perfect Mother’s Day gift. The troupe is currently preparing for its upcoming Cabaret, featuring an evening of music and magic on May 11, the day before Mother’s Day, that promises to be another polished performance featuring some serious young talent. All seats for the musical variety show are $8 and available at the theatre box office. “When you look at the kids [involved] you just know it’s going to be a good show,” says director Nancy Garrod, who is being assisted by Jen Caddick and Kate Nicholas in overseeing the production and its six-member cast. And, she adds, the level of talent is typical of Young Company productions seen there in recent years. Noting that it’s not just parents who are impressed by the performances provided by its members, Garrod predicts the one-night Cabaret will prove another hit. Regular Young Company

activities designed to introduce visitors to these birds and the fine art of bird watching. On Saturday, May 18, and Sunday, May 19, we will start out with an ultra early bird walk for the ultra keen at 6:30 a.m. from the Lighthouse Centre. We will also offer a repeat bird walk starting at 10 a.m. from the Lighthouse Centre. “Warblers are often called

the ‘jewels of the forest’ for their varied and beautiful colours,” says park naturalist David Bree, “but they can be a challenge to see. Our experts can help you find and identify some of the 20-plus species likely present in the park this weekend. While bird watching is best in the early morning, there is usually some activity all day during migration and we should see birds on our

later walks as well as the early ones.” There will be a guided walk starting from the Owen Point Trail parking lot at 2 p.m. to seek out shorebirds, the other end of the birding spectrum. Warblers are often hidden, shorebirds stand in the open. Warblers are brightly coloured, shorebirds are beautiful but are subtle tones of brown, grey, and

red. Shorebirds too can be a challenge to identify, but having a guide with a spotting scope will help visitors get a good look at these fascinating creatures. These are true long-distance migrants; many are travelling from southern South America to the Canadian Arctic and are only stopping a few days at Presqu’ile to refuel. The highlight for many will be a bird banding demonstration at the Owen Point Trail parking lot from 8 a.m. until noon courtesy of Elizabeth Kellogg and Roger Frost, licensed bird banders. This will allow visitors an unprecedented chance to see birds up close and learn how and why birds are banded. This activity is weather dependent for the safety of the birds.
