EMC News - Belleville It was a sight to behold in downtown Belleville on Saturday, May 11, as over 100 men and their supporters marched their way through the city core in support of the third annual Walk a Mile in Her Shoes Quinte. The catch? Each of those 100 men wore red high-heeled shoes for the duration of the walk, rais-



ing funds for Three Oaks, a local shelter for women and children who are the victims of domestic violence. “I think it has to do both [raise funds and awareness] in the community,” said walk chair Patricia Guernsey. “The funds are needed to help the community and the women and the kids and the shelter aspect … we wish we didn’t have to raise Please see “Walk” on page 5

Police force dodges bullet

By Jack Evans

EMC News - Belleville The Belleville Police Department dodged a bullet at city council Monday— but only for three months. Council was debating a motion to formally ask for a study by the OPP to take over city policing.

The issue was marked by impassioned debate, punctuated by outbursts of applause and murmurs from a packed public gallery. Sparking the debate was a report from CAO Rick Kester on the process of obtaining a cost estimate from the OPP as re-

Mayor Neil Ellis heads to China

EMC News - Belleville - Mayor Neil Ellis will join ten other Ontario mayors in China this week, as he and Brighton Mayor Mark Walas represent the Bay of Quinte region to potential foreign investors on a ten-day trip from May 15 to 25. “Hopefully we’ll come back with a better understanding of how we are able to bring some dollars from Asia to invest in our community,” Ellis said.

“When you look at Belleville … the large majority of municipalities haven’t turned around.” Organized by the Executive of the Canada China Investment Association, the trip will see the mayors visit both Beijing and Shanghai during their stay, meeting with investors who have already shown an interest in investing in Canada. For Belleville, Ellis said the city is primarily looking for investors in industrial and residential sectors, including gauging interest in investment in high-rise condominium buildings. “Whether it’s investment from inside Canada, or investment from anywhere … when you look at the market in China it’s one of the biggest markets, and growing markets,” Ellis said. “We’re going to promote the area not only economically with land and buildings, but for tourism as well.” Ellis pointed to the recent Conference Board Of Canada’s first

Continued from page 3

Mid-Sized Cities Outlook for 2013, where Belleville was recognized as having steady economic growth over the past two years as a potential draw to investors. Between 2010 and 2012, the report found that Belleville’s economy grew by more than four per cent on average, something that was an irregularity in the report. More than half of the 46 mid-sized cities covered were found to not have recovered all the jobs lost during the recession based on economic data from 2005 to 2012. Economies contracted in all but 11 mid-sized Canadian cities during the recession, and while economic growth resumed in 40 cities in 2012, 13 cities actually posed negative economic growth between 2011 and 2012. “When you look at Belleville … the large majority of municipalities haven’t turned around,” Ellis said. “When you look at a municipality our size that’s doing so well, that tends to attract people, and if anybody wants to invest they want to invest in a community that’s moving forward. We’re a community that’s been proven on paper to be very successful over the last four, five, or six years.” Regarding the trip to China, the trade mission is meant to provide a platform for mayors to identify market trends in China, and showcase the unprecedented growth of the Chinese economy. “There are many investment opportunities in Brighton and throughout the Bay of Quinte region that could be of interest to Chinese investors. This trip is an opportunity to develop relationships, promote our region and opportunities that can ultimately lead to investment and job creation,” said Mayor Walas in a release.

money for that organization, but we do. But the awareness of it is just as important.” The event was organized by staff of Royal Lepage ProAlliance Realty, and entering its third year was aiming to raise $30,000, up from $23,000 raised in 2012. Money raised from the event is earmarked for the Three Oaks second stage housing campaign. “It’s a wonderful event,” said Pam Havery, executive director of Three Oaks. “Domestic violence, violence against women and children is a community issue, it’s a social issue; so it’s very important that ev-

erybody rallies behind it.” Roger Leonard came from Trenton with a few of his biker friends, participating for the second time. He said a recent chance meeting with someone who had used the shelter services really hit home for him, and he was glad to help out the cause in any way he could. “I think my favourite part is just getting everybody together and the camaraderie of it; it’s good to get everybody together,” he said. Participants ran the full gamut of ages, from young children and students to seniors, and Guernsey said that was particularly encouraging for her.

city is even studying how or whether to go back to a municipal force, but the costing is prohibitive. Mayor Neil Ellis focussed on the capital cost of a new police headquarters, exceeding an estimated $20 million, compared to an OPP estimate of $7 million for their needs, hinting that perhaps a major cost could be avoided.

Both Thurlow Ward representatives, Councillors Denyes and Taso Christopher argued strongly that only by proceeding with the OPP study would council get the full information to make a proper decision, but Miler’s motion to table the issue for three months carried on a 7 - 2 vote. R0011955751-0307

be substantial savings within the local force with the impending retirement of five senior officers. She also reviewed experiences of other communities that had abandoned their local forces in favour of the OPP where they found costs rose just as sharply if not more so and extra start-up costs were not included in the original estimates. She noted one Ontario

Alongside the walk, the event featured a yard sale, car and bike show, and plenty of vendors in Empire Square. Once it was time to walk, the participants marched their way down Front Street before circling city hall and returning to Empire Square. The march was led by Trenton’s 8 Wing Pipe Band.

absorb all uniformed personnel, but not the 46 civilian employees. He also suggested a new building to house its needs would be around $7 million. Councillor Jackie Denyes promptly moved to adopt the go-ahead recommendation. Councillor Egerton Boyce opposed on the grounds of losing local jobs and said council should look at finding more savings within the present force first. Councillor Pat Culhane pointed to Kester’s report which stated there could be significant hidden costs through a heavy involvement of staff and administration time plus likely need of professional special consultants. She said she was not prepared to do anything until she got more information on those possible costs. She also pointed out that the OPP force has been on a wage freeze which lifts at the end of this year, and then officers will be paid at the same rate as the highest paid police in Ontario. Councillor Jack Miller drew applause when he said: “Just vote no,” asking to table the motion for three months. He also cited criticisms of the Ontario Auditor on OPP cost efficiency problems and lack of adequate use of civilian staff. Police Chief Cory McMullen was invited to speak and reported there will soon

“I think getting the kids involved in the walk at an earlier age [is important], and making it a part of their culture that they understand that this is a problem in our community,” she said. Havery agreed, saying it was important to reach kids at an early age. “It’s great to see so many different people here, men of all ages. It means a lot to the staff, and the women who experience that and survive it,” she said.

It’s not complaining; facts are facts Dear Editor, Re: “Quit complaining; count your blessings instead.” Francis T. Hay feels I was being unreasonable in my criticism of Hydro One’s response to the recent ice storm, and he has completely missed my point about the need to upgrade and modernize the rural power grid in order to mitigate the damage caused by severe weather. Apparently he’s misconstrued my letter about the length of time it took to restore electrical power to certain areas of Northumberland County (and specifically Trent Hills) as being directed at the emergency line workers whose job it was to repair downed power lines and replace toppled poles. It was not. It was directed at Hydro One, a monopoly utility company whose profit

motive outweighs its commitment to maintain a robust electricity delivery system in rural areas, quickly repair outages when they occur, and provide an effective customer communication system concerning the status of repair work. Calls to Hydro One’s 24-hour power outage hotline provided little, if any, accurate information. The automated system continually changed the estimated date/time for power restoration. I was repeatedly advised that power would be restored by 11 p.m. each and every day for four days, and it failed to happen as promised. Had I been provided more accurate information about when power would be restored, I might have been able to make some decisions, and make alternative living arrangements for the duration. Don’t tell me that the power will be restored by a certain time and

Myth: It doesn’t matter what type of toothbrush you use. Not all toothbrushes are created equal. Soft brushes are recommended as hard brushes have bristles that can cause damage to your teeth and gums. The use of toothbrushes with hard bristles can lead to conditions such as receding gums and cause ledges to form along teeth if one is too aggressive about brushing. Therefore, the recommendation is to brush at least twice a day with a soft bristle toothbrush. Myth: If you brush, you don’t need to floss The mouth is filled with bacteria. Brushing only removes bacteria from the front and inside surfaces of teeth. It cannot help you clean in between the teeth. Yes, even electric toothbrushes cannot clean in between teeth either. Flossing is the only way to remove the bacteria between teeth so that you won’t get cavities there (I nickname these cavities as “flossing cavities”) Myth: Cosmetic dentistry is only for the rich and famous You would be surprised how affordable cosmetic dental procedures are. You can always budget for them and there are third party financing organizations available to assist you with making those procedures more affordable. Currently, whitening procedures are the most affordable and popular cosmetic services across Canada. Myth: You only need to visit the dentist if you have a problem Most oral health conditions remain quite silent in our mouths especially early on. For example, cavities, when small, often cannot

Myth: Root canals never work. After a root canal my tooth just broke and it had to be removed. This is partially true. Root canal therapy is a very effective treatment for relieving toothaches. However, all root canal treated teeth are at risk for fracture. Any teeth in the back of the mouth with root canal treatments need to be capped. Otherwise, you are at risk for losing them due to breakage. Myth: I don’t need teeth because I can always get dentures. This is a very serious misconception. Individuals who must resort to the use of dentures experience a complete change in their lifestyle. Wearing dentures means that you will likely have to avoid eating certain types of food because they may be too difficult to chew. Another concern that most denture wearers share are dentures becoming loose. This results because the shape of the inside of the mouth changes with tooth loss and therefore dentures will become ill-fitting and loose with time. However, sometimes even the best fitting dentures will not stay in place because dentures experience a multitude of forces that knock them out of place. One example is the movement of the tongue during eating or even talking. That is why dentures alone are not an appropriate replacement for your teeth. discuss next time. Please stay tuned.

be felt. The cavity is usually only noticed by the individual when it reaches close to the nerve. At this point, the tooth will likely require a root canal and crown or even worse an extraction (tooth loss). Another group of conditions that often goes unnoticed by patients are the gum diseases. Most gum diseases are not felt until you the teeth become quite loose. However, by that time, it is usually too late to save them and the result is tooth loss. By visiting your dentist regularly, your dentist can detect these problems early and correct them before major dental procedures become necessary. Not only will you save your teeth but you will also save your money.

then not follow through. I wondered if Hydro One crews were working 24 hours (overnight) doing repairs to power lines during this emergency? I am skeptical as I never saw any evidence of crews working at night, or received an estimated time for power restoration after midnight or before the next morning. I wondered if enough emergency workers were available during the storm’s aftermath. Did Hydro One bring in work crews from other areas of the province or other jurisdictions (Quebec or the U.S.?) to assist in restoring power, as they themselves helped New Jersey in the wake of hurricane Sandy? I know the ice was thick and heavy. I did drive around after the storm and saw the damage first hand in the area of County Road 45 at Fenella. I wondered how old those ten toppled poles

were, and how long it had been since Hydro One had performed any preventive maintenance on this line by trimming branches that were overhanging the wires? If 83 hours without power isn’t enough, I wonder at what point Mr. Hay feels one might be justified in voicing some dissatisfaction? One week without power? How about a month? Perhaps people living in rural area shouldn’t complain at all and just suck it up? The power will be restored when it’s restored and we’ll count our blessings when it is. If the ice storm had affected an urban area, you can rest assured that it wouldn’t have taken four days for Hydro One to restore power. Why is it that rural electricity customers are always the last to have their power restored?

Mr. Hay smugly suggests that “anyone with my attitude” buy a generator and worry no more about not having hydro. “I’d barely be inconvenienced,” he states. While redundant emergency systems and self-sufficiency is nice to have for those with the means, has Mr. Hay considered that perhaps not everyone has the money to make such a purchase? Emergency generators cost between $500 and $1,000. A standby generator of the type he mentions can cost up to $5,000 or more. He suggests that I put the money I saved from being without power for 83 hours toward a gasoline generator. I suspect it wouldn’t be enough to buy the gasoline to fill the tank. Paul MacDonald, Trent Hills

Try working together as Disrespectful a team for a change and rude

Dear Editor, As a former deputy-reeve of Brighton, I am alarmed by the time and effort wasted by members of council to make Mayor Walas look bad. Council members are supposed to talk to people and making inquiries is the only way to find better ways of serving the community. Surely you cannot expect staff to initiate every new proposal? If the mayor is on the take or making financial gains then we need an integrity commission but if on the other hand he is asking questions for the good

of the community then this red tape commission is a waste of taxpayers’ time and money. This constant hassling makes our town look silly and discourages volunteers who are trying to improve our municipality. Sad. You are supposed to be working together as a team for the benefit of all. People I talk to are upset that we have to wait for another year for the next municipal election to tell this committee of four what we think. Yours truly, Bonnie Browne, Brighton

Dear Editor, The past two Sundays I heard a mobile device ringing behind us. Also there was a guy texting this past Sunday. How disrespectful is that? What’s next, a funeral home during visitation or a burial? Please check your device at the door. Leave it in your car or at least shut it off. Murray Hamelin, Hastings

Hospital Auxiliary gets answers from the top By Kate Everson

EMC News - Trenton Mary Clare Egberts, CEO of Quinte Health Care, made a presentation to the auxiliary of Trenton Memorial Hospital at its annual business meeting at the Legion on May 14. President Pam Pettigrew told the members to expect changes in health care. “Standing still is not an option,” Pettigrew said. “Things are changing. We have to move with the times.” Board chair Brian Smith admitted these are challenging times at Quinte Health Care. He reaffirmed that TMH is here to stay with 24-hour emergency care and the appropriate number of inpatient beds. He urged everyone to work together. Mary Clare Egberts said change is constant at QHC. She said they are not closing the lab at TMH but are installing a Point of Care lab that is more efficient and 50 times as fast. She said it will eventually be at Belleville hospital too but they actually have higher volumes of patients and cannot afford one there yet. She noted that the same

concerns over the labs was expressed in Picton hospital at first but now doctors are very happy with the system. “They said they would never go back,” she said. Egberts said Community Care Access Centre (CCAC) has had increased funding by four per cent or $4 million to increase services in the community for home care. There is also a new hospice in Trent Hills and one in Picton. She stressed the need to reduce use of hospital beds for patients who could be better treated at home. Pam Pettigrew asked about the difficulty of getting home care for those discharged from the hospital. Egberts stressed that QHC does not manage the services of CCAC and they have no control. Their CEO Jackie Redmond is in charge of that and they are hiring more staff for the community. “They are working hard getting ready,” she said. She added that patients can call 310-CCAC for information on their services. Pettigrew said some patients have told her they are afraid to call. Egberts said

the CCAC need to know where they are falling down and to provide the same high standards. Mayor John Williams said, “The CCAC is not working well at all. The VON can’t find enough help. They are stretched to the limits.” He added not everybody is happy with the new lab and this is distressing to all of us. “Communication is not as good as it should be,” he said, referring

to Quinte Health Care. “They need to talk to us before decisions are made.” He said the QHC is saving $400,000 by getting rid of the current lab but most of that is by eliminating six or seven positions. Pettigrew commented that the home care situation is not adequate. Williams said if they can’t do it they will tell the LHIN to back off.

3D guns and car parts

EMC Editorial - The story so far: Cody Wilson, who describes himself as a “cryptoanarchist” and almost certainly wears a Second Amendment belt-buckle, had a bright idea early last year. No government could ever oppress its people again, reasoned the 25-yearold law student at the University of Texas, if everybody in the world was able to manufacture their own guns at home. Well, not everybody in the world, exactly, but at least everybody with $8,000 to buy a 3D printer on e-Bay, or access to one of the 3D printing shops that are springing up in major cities. So Wilson set out to design a gun made entirely of high-density ABS plastic that could be printed on a standard 3D machine. He printed and tested it, and last week he made the blueprints available online. For those who are not clear on the concept (the rest may proceed in an orderly manner to the next paragraph), a 3D printer is basically a photocopying machine that sprays molten plastic instead of ink. But instead of doing only one layer on a sheet of paper, it does thousands of layers, one on top of the other, until it has formed a fully threedimensional object. Like a gun. There are not all that many 3D printers in circulation yet, but they are the Next Big Thing, and in five or ten years they may be as common as mobile phones. It would appear that a great many people are looking forward to that happy day, because in the first week after Wilson uploaded the blueprints for his gun, 100,000 people downloaded them. Wilson is one of those political innocents on the libertarian right who truly believe that governments would behave better if everybody had a gun. He even calls his plastic pistol the “Liberator.” He presumably hasn’t noticed that the United States government carries on collecting heavy taxes and crushing the spirit of free enterprise even though most Americans already have guns. Predictably, last Friday the U.S. government mobilised to shut his little enterprise down. The Office of Defense Trade Controls Compliance at the State Department wrote Wilson’s company, Defense Distributed, demanding that

Gwynne Dyer

his designs for a 3D gun be “removed from public access” until he proves that he has not broken the laws that govern the shipment of weapons overseas. (Is he really shipping weapons overseas? Don’t bother us with details.) The government took that route because there has been an instant public outcry about the “Liberator”—but Wilson already has a licence to manufacture and sell the weapon from the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. As for exporting the blueprints, he also registered his operation under the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), administered by the State Department, and has legal advice that it complies with the rules. But the genie is well and truly out of the bottle. There have not only been 100,000 downloads from Wilson’s own site. It has also been uploaded onto Pirate Bay (with no protest from him), and downloads from that site are going through the roof. So what does all this mean? It doesn’t mean that terrorists are more dangerous; they have never had any trouble in getting their hands on weapons a lot more lethal than a single-shot pistol. It does mean that people can now make weapons that will not be detected by this generation of airport metal detectors, so it may soon take even longer to get on the plane. But that was going to happen pretty soon anyway. What Cody Wilson has actually done is provide us with a useful wake-up call about the huge economic and security implications of this powerful new technology. The 3D printers will get better, faster and cheaper, and they will be able to produce much more impressive weapons. Forget about banning assault weapons; people will be able to make them at home. More important, they will also be able to 3D-print almost any other mass-produced item whose components are less than a metre (three feet) long. This not only has serious implications for retailers of such items—the WalMarts of the world—but also for entire countries whose economy depends heavily on manufacturing and exporting items of this sort. Even the cheapest labour is probably more expensive than 3D printing. So “outsourcing” will go out of fashion, but the impact of 3D printing on traditional employment patterns in the developed countries will be just as severe. Cars will continue to be built on (highly automated) assembly lines, but most of the companies in the supply chain will collapse as the car manufacturers start printing the parts themselves as and when they need them. Here comes the future again.


Please consider this carefully Dear Editor, This is a letter to the mayor of Belleville and council. Dear mayor and council, We have lost  two major landmarks in our downtown core: Hotel Quinte and BCI. Please, don’t add the Memorial Arena to that list. I am writing to implore and ask this council to seriously reconsider how you approach and vote on Agenda, 8.b, Consent, 8.b.1 - DISPOSAL OF SURPLUS LAND – 15 MARKET STREET (MEMORIAL ARENA). When voting, please consider that the number one decisive factor be the historical designation this building has to the city, province, country and world. Please also seriously consider that instead of selling the property, you strive to secure a long-term lease option.

250 Sidney St., Belleville, ON K8P 5L6 Phone: 613-966-2034 Fax: 613-966-8747

Any option, apart from replacing the ice will come at a much greater cost than keeping the facility in its current form and would be a welcome sight to have it a bustle of activity and occupied versus sitting empty. This same council voted to support a similar effort presented by Mr. Lindenberg for the Kinsmen Pool and playgrounds, a decision I applaud and support. Both the Memorial Arena and Kinsmen Pool and playground provide recreation and a service to the community in the central, downtown area of our city.   Your every consideration to this request would be greatly appreciated. Sincerely,

Betty J. Burkitt, Belleville

The ebb and flow of intelligence By Terry Bush

EMC Editorial - In honour of Mother’s Day, I have to admit that my mother was occasionally right in the 55 years I’ve known her. In fact, the older I became, the smarter she seemed to get, especially when I was about halfway through my twenties. Funny how that works. When I was little, I thought my mom was probably the smartest person in the world. Nothing against my dad but he was off farming most of time while Mom was at home. And Father’s Day isn’t for another month. The first time I noticed her starting to slip a little was when I went off to school for Grade 1. It soon became apparent that the smartest person in my little world definitely had to be my teacher, Mrs. Bell, because she always had the answers to everyone’s questions. My mother, though still pretty bright, was only scoring around 98 per cent most of the time when answering my childish queries. In Grade 2, Mrs. McGee was really smart too I thought, mainly because she must have conferred with Mrs. Bell about her students and both decided that those of us sitting in the row on the right hand side of the classroom would be labelled “Beavers” because of our industrious ways and the majority of the class would serve their term as “Bunnies” with the row on the left hand side bringing up the rear as “Bees.” I don’t think Beavers were actually smarter than Bunnies or Bees but back in olden times, teachers saw no harm in calling it as they saw it, something that is definitely a no-no in today’s “everyone passes so they won’t have low self esteem” kind of world. Being a Beaver was pretty cool when I was six. It’s good for a laugh to this day especially when I run into my friend and classmate Debbie and we exchange Beaver stories which I’m sure gives people pause when they hear us jabbering on at a crowded event.  Anyway, back to my mother. She stayed in second place until the end of Grade 4 and then started to slide even more. By the time I finished Grade 8, she was tanking big time and when Grade 11 rolled around, she didn’t know much of anything anymore. How could she when I knew everything? I did my best to humour her but couldn’t help but roll my eyes at times and just shake my head. By the time I was in my late 20s, Mom had had a bit of a resurgence and occasionally even offered a bit of wisdom if anyone was listening. In my 30s, she started making even more sense and I must admit that I’m now regaling others with some of her quotes.  Time speeds up when you hit 35 I say, the same as she said to me. And it’s true; the weeks seem to go by quicker when you have more on your plate than just putting in time at a job and partying on the weekend. Ditto for getting more forgetful the older you get. It would be amusing for someone to walk in on a conversation between the over-sixty members of our staff and myself as we try to help one another finish sentences when we lose our train of thought. Now when we stand there dumbfounded and clueless, we just joke that we’ll give each other a call around 3 a.m. when we remember that name that escaped us. We’re all up then anyway toddling off the bathroom. The funniest thing has to be when Glenda, our production manager, forgets what she’s talking about and blames it on hanging out with a bunch of geezers. She’s not quite 35 yet but failing fast. I’m sure her kids will soon be thinking the same way I did, Mom just isn’t as sharp as she used to be. The eye rolling will start in a couple of years. Mom just won’t get it anymore and sooner or later, she’ll be the most uncool person in the world. And later in life, Mom will recover some of her brain cells and some of the things she mentioned along the way will be passed on to another generation. I can still remember what my mother said to me the day she dropped me off in my Grade 1 classroom. I was a very shy and nervous little boy and it was obviously a very scary experience for me. So, Mom, as usual, knew the perfect thing to say, “Look at all the little blonde girls in your class. You like blondes. You’ll have lots of fun.” And I did. Mom was right … as she usually was. I even married a blonde. Hopefully, one of these days some of my brain cells will get around to regenerating too. While I’m finally just about as smart as my mother was at my age, she still holds the advantage. She’s 83 and in her prime. I have some catching up to do.

Pull for Kids fund raiser celebrates nine years

By Steve Jessel

EMC News - Belleville - For many children suffering from asthma, living a normal life can be challenging. Many of us take our ability to breathe freely for granted, but for one in five children asthma can make even the most mundane tasks far more difficult than they should be, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why the Ontario Lung Association is hosting their ninth annual Pull for Kids fund raiser in Belleville on Saturday, June 1. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think for the event in general, we want to bring awareness to the community about asthma, and children with asthma, and what the Ontario Lung Association can do to help people in the community,â&#x20AC;? said Kerry McCloy, Ontario Lung Association (OLA) area manager. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At the same time weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a non-profit and fund raising is the main reason for this event.â&#x20AC;? On June 1 beginning at roughly 11 a.m. for warm-ups, eight or more teams of eight to twelve people will compete to drag a 13-ton charter bus up to 100 feet through the Loweâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Home Improvement parking lot. Originally a joint event between several community organizations to pull a fire truck, today the event is run solely by the OLA, and owing to the complications around reserving a

fire truck for a full day, the event now uses a charter bus provided by Foley Bus Lines. The event also features a free barbeque for participants and volunteers and a childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s area with face painting and activities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just trying to help increase awareness about the prevalence of asthma in our community, and how families can take control of childhood asthma,â&#x20AC;? McCloy said. Team captain Thomas Cowey of Deweyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Independent is bringing a team of eight guys to the event, and while he said they arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t doing anything in particular to prepare, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hopeful the event is a success overall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I hope thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of people that come out and support this cause because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great, and hopefully we can raise a lot of money that day,â&#x20AC;? Cowey said. The event hopes to raise at least $10,000 this year, and is also aiming for ten teams to take part. Registration is still ongoing, and for more information contact the Lung Association at 613-969-0323 or visit their web site at <>. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We just want everyone to come out and have a good time,â&#x20AC;? said Lola McMurter, OLA special events co-ordinator.

Sponsors and team captains gathered at Montanaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on Monday, May 14, and on hand was the massive 13-ton charter bus that teams will be pulling.

EMC News - Belleville - A new water main along Maitland Drive to serve the north end of Belleville will commence this summer after council approved a tender for almost $1.7 million from Cobourg Development Services Ltd. In other business from Mondayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meeting, council referred a presentation from Prince Edward Mayor Peter Mertens to staff for a report. Mertens called for a review of costing for the long-standing arrangement for Belleville to deliver water to portions of his county. Also referred to management for a report was a request from the Three Oaks Foundation for easement of municipal fees for the construction of a new eightunit shelter and office. Council gave approval to requests from the Chamber of Commerce for the Waterfront Festival and to the Rotary Club for their annual Golf Tournament and Party in the Square on July 19. Three significant properties were also approved as declared surplus: the Memorial Arena, the Richard Ellis rink and the Pinnacle Street elderly persons centre and former recreation offices. Council was told that the move was just a formality to allow for further consideration of future use or sale.

The Heart and Stroke Big Bike is a team event that has been taking place in Belleville, and across Canada for more than 20 years. Last year, 40,000 riders nationwide helped raise $7 million for ongoing heart and stroke research. Locally this year, 88 teams have signed up for the Big Bike, eclipsing last year’s 72 participating teams by a fair margin. Not every team has the 29 members needed to fill all the seats on the Big Bike, but Harrison said that it’s always encouraging to see more teams getting involved each year. “The community is fantastic; we’re Members of the Quinte Vocational Support Services raised $2,400 for their trip around the Quinte Exhibition Racetrack on May always pleased to have some great key 10 as part of the Heart and Stroke Foundation Big Bike campaign.

The show is not limited to Quinte Arts Council members, and as such attracted artists from all across the region, from as young as 18 to as old as 92. Feeney said this adds yet another interesting layer to the show, as

the various ages of the participating artists means viewers are exposed to a wide range of perspectives and experiences. “[The pieces] are so diverse,” Feeney said. “I like the fact that so many different pieces get in.”

EMC News - Belleville - For Expressions, Quinte Arts Council’s biennial show, it’s all about bringing something new to the table. “I think it’s outstanding; I think this is one of the best Expressions we’ve had to date,” said Carol Feeney, Executive Director for Quinte Arts Council at the show’s opening reception at the John M. Parrott Art Gallery on Thursday, May 9. Running until May 31, Expressions brings together the varied styles of more than 60 artists in a range of mediums to form a show that’s only theme is being fresh and unexpected. For Feeney, this marks the most exciting part of the show, as she said there’s always a few surprises each time the show runs. “I think my favourite part is the actual day of the jurying, seeing all this new work come in is like Christmas,” Feeney said. “You don’t know what you’re going to get … it’s always very unique.” Painters, sculptors, mixed media artists, potters and woodworkers all have their works on display at the gallery, and throughout the show’s duration patrons of the gallery are able to cast their votes for a People’s Choice Award. At the opening reception, the Jurors’ Choice Awards and the Ontario Crafts Council Design Awards were presented to three artists, each with varying techniques. Ray Dearborn was the recipient of the Ontario Craft Council Award for his Hollow Cube Jewellery Box, while painter Milé Murtanovski and photographer Sherlyn Keddie won the jurors’ choice awards for their pieces Subtractive Composites, and Unsettled: Beds of Birkenau Auschwitz, respectively. “I’m stunned, I’m very grateful … I’ve never won an award like that,” said Keddie. Keddie’s piece, Unsettled: Beds of Birkenau Auschwitz is a photo taken inside the Auschwitz concentration camp in Poland. Across the front of the photo, Keddie placed strands of barbed wire, something she said she hoped had a greater impact on the viewer. “I was trying to find a way to convey the distance between the viewers and what’s happened,” Keddie explained. “Even when I handed it in I thought that I’m not doing it justice … I’m happy that

EMC News - Trenton - If you weren’t belly dancing Saturday, or watching it, then you missed International Belly Dancing Day. Yes, there really is such a day, insisted Sara Jane Gregg of Trenton, who organized ten women from Brighton through Belleville to recognize it locally with three performances around Trenton Saturday morning. The ancient dance skill involves thousands of women from 150 countries she explained, and what they call a “flash mob” belly dance is held every year on that day with donations and sponsorships by participants earmarked for a recognized charity. This year, shelters for women and children were the beneficiary around the world, she added. Before starting their performance at the Trenton Farmers’ Market under chilly conditions, she announced that “many people have an idea about what Layers of brightly coloured thin metal plates worn around the middle can sound like castanets when wig- belly dancing is—we’re here to show gled properly, as demonstrated by local belly dancers calling attention to annual International Belly Danc- you what it is not.” One of the women participating ing Day Saturday.

of belly dancers.” Local participants came from Brighton, Stirling, Belleville and Trenton. With an industrial-sized boom box pumping out infectious middle-eastern rhythms and music, the company created a colourful display of quaking jewellery and graceful hand movements that would be a credit for any parlour family show. Each participant, said Gregg, besides raising pledges, has to acquire the audiotape and learn the specific movements for the special day’s dances. The Quinte area was one of only three Ontario communities to enjoy the spectacle this year, she added. The only other two locations in Ontario were Thunder Bay and Brockville. After the market gig, the girls moved on to Smylie’s Independent Grocer for another brief show, then to the annual charity barbeque sponsored by M and M Meats. Gregg said the international day movement picks a different charity every year.

Also, the new route around the bay was quite popular.” Wendy Warner added, “The weather was perfect.” Warner said the funds will go directly into the TMH Foundation to pay for needed medical equipment.

EMC News - Trenton - A lot of heavy running has created a whirlwind of funds for Trenton Memorial Hospital Foundation. “It’s a great amount,” said foundation executive director Wendy Warner, holding up a big cheque for $18,706.10. Jaclyn Grimmon said it is up from last year’s amount of $15,700. The number registered for the event was

Care in the community and at home best a strong home and community care sector will be an increasingly critical part of a sustainable healthcare system. Investing in home and community care will make the biggest difference for people.

EMC News - Belleville - Increased investment in the home and community care sector will improve timely access to care for a greater number of people across the province. The South East Community Care Access Centre is pleased by the Ontario government’s $260-million investment which will strengthen the sector as a whole, and benefit people who want to live, age and receive care in their own homes. The care needs of patients are often better met in their homes and care at home provides better value for Ontario’s taxpayers. As our population ages and age-related chronic conditions rise,

A May 1 tour, led by Glenn Ferguson, the company’s aggregate manager, was enjoyed by members of the fireworks committee and representatives of Black Canvas Fireworks, the Frankford based business which will both supply and set off the pyrotechnic display. The outing also included a look at the many types of rocks contained on the site, with Ferguson identifying each for the interested group. Committee member Cathie Jones later expressed appreciation to Aecon, for both making the site available and for their generous donation toward the purchase of the fireworks.

Artists work in the great outdoors

EMC Lifestyles - Belleville The streets and trails of Belleville and the Quinte area will be alive with art later this month, when the first Belleville-on-theBay-of-Quinte Plein Air Festival comes to the region from May 31 to June 2. “It’s something that has not been done in this area; it’s a really unique festival,” said Belleville Downtown Improvement Area (BDIA) executive director Sarah Tummon. “There’s a huge artist community in Belleville and the Quinte area, so we thought it would be really great for the artists to experience.”

Put together by the BDIA in partnership with Quinte Arts Council and the Ontario Plein Air Society, during the three-day festival artists create original works based on the landscape, scenery and architecture of Belleville and the Quinte area. What makes the festival different is that the artists create their pieces entirely outdoors, where spectators are free to take in each artist’s craft. At the end of the event, artists turn in their works for a chance to win up to $4,500 in prizes. Currently, roughly 50 artists have registered for the inaugural event, and Tummon said there’s always space for more to participate.

“A lot of the artists that have registered thus far, they’ve never actually taken part in a plein air festival, although they paint outdoors all the time,” Tummon said. Artists will be placed in one of four zones in the area. Zone 1 features the historic buildings of downtown Belleville, zone 2 the wonderful vistas of the Bay of Quinte, zone 3 the scenic waterways of the Moira River, and zone 4 the stately expanses of Old East Hill. Each artist may submit two pieces for judging. “I’m really excited to see artists throughout the streets of downtown, because I’m always

promoting the downtown and I think it will be a great event for this area,” Tummon said. Based on the success of the inaugural festival, Tummon said she was confident the event could have a positive impact on Belleville for years to come, and that plein air festivals worldwide are

known for attracting artists from far and wide. “We think it’s really important for the BDIA to be behind this event because downtown Belleville is home to so many art studios and artists as well … it’s really important to support that,” she said. “It’s something that we

see growing, and something that can be a signature event for the BDIA.” The festival kicks off with an artists’ reception on May 31 at 7 p.m. at Capers Brasserie in Belleville. For more information, visit the web site at <>.

EMC News - Stirling - Two local men were rushed to hospital after a pair of separate accidents where they were thrown from their vehicles. Stirling-Rawdon Police Chief Brian Foley says the more serious incident last Friday evening involved a 26-yearold man who lost control of a dirt bike he was riding in the parking lot at 400 West Front Street, severing a gas line. The man was taken to Belleville General Hospital, Foley says, before being transferred to Kingston. An ambulance was dispatched shortly after 8 p.m. and members of the Stirling-Rawdon Fire Department were also called to the scene, he says. Fire Chief Rick Caddick says the gas had to be shut off and repairs made before service was restored Monday morning. And it was the driver, not the bike, that broke the gas line, he says. Last Thursday afternoon it was a 19-year-old Rawdon man who was taken to Campbellford hospital after he ran into the side of a propane truck. Foley says the operator of a four-wheeler didn’t see the truck backing into a driveway on Pauley Road and subsequently smashed into the side of it. He was treated and released from hospital.

Raising awareness for Relay for Life By Steve Jessel

EMC News - Belleville - It was a festive atmosphere at the Relay for Life media launch and yard sale on Saturday, May 11, and with the Relay drawing closer day by day the event had a double bonus for everyone taking part. “It’s about raising awareness; there’s people coming to the yard sale that wouldn’t normally come to Relay for Life,” said cochair Christine McArthur. “It’s having the opportunity to put it on the radar for everybody, and the second part is all these teams they come out here to raise money,” added Relay for Life MC David Somers. Taking place on June 21 at Loyalist College in Belleville, 50 teams have already signed up for the 2013 edition of Relay for Life in Belleville, and eight of those teams brought out the folding tables and tents for the annual yard sale and media launch on

May 11. New to the media launch this year was a clown shoe race between local media representatives, where Quinte Broadcasting’s Danny Guppy claimed first place in a race rife with smiles, laughs and missteps. “To see the media come out is really a great thing,” McArthur said. “For the representatives of the different radio stations and newspapers to come out, it’s really heartwarming that our story is going to get out there.” When the relay does kick off on June 21, it will have a theme for the first time ever. The planned “Under the Big Top” theme means that jugglers, magicians and live music are just a few of the planned entertainments for the event, which is aiming to have 100 teams participate this year. “When the event actually happens it just takes on a life of its own,” Somers said. Team captain Florence Fleming and her team “Cookin’ Crew” were on hand at the

yard sale May 11, hoping to raise funds for their team goal. This year will mark Fleming’s tenth time participating in the Relay for Life, and she said she gets involved to honour the memory of both her mother and a sister, who lost their lives to cancer. “It’s amazing, it’s wonderful,” she said, when asked what it’s like to see so many people come out each year. “It’s such a super event that after you come out once you want to come out again and again.” For Fleming, the lighting of the luminaries is always a memorable part of the event, but she said that the opening survivors lap is as uplifting as the luminaries are solemn. “Everybody is touched by cancer, and I think everyone should know that this is an amazing event, to come out and see it for the first time, you’ll be pretty amazed,” Registration for teams continues right Taking part in the clown shoe race are from the left Erica Holgate, Steve Jessel and and Paul White. up until the opening ceremonies on June 21.

Rowing Club capital campaign gets huge boost EMC News - Trenton - The Trenton Rowing and Paddling Club is very pleased to announce that one year after their announcement to raise $100,000 to build a boat house on the east bank of the Trent River they have almost reached their goal. The capital campaign got a huge boost this week with donations being announced from two foundations. The Maxfield Foundation, a local registered charity that

funds projects in the Quinte Region, has approved donating $5,000 to the boat house capital campaign and looks forward to seeing the Rowing and Paddling Club active in our community. This coupled with a $5,000 donation from the Gore Mutual Foundation will bring the total raised to just under $100,000. “The Gore Mutual Foundation presented a cheque to the Rowing Club this week,” says Paul Whitley, owner of Whit-

ley Insurance and Financial Services and a big supporter of the club. “The Gore Mutual Foundation supports the communities served by Gore Mutual Insurance Company by aiding social services, education, health, cultural and environmental activities as may be in the best interest of these communities.” The City of Quinte West has supported this project from the start and has leased the land in Kiwanis Park to the Rowing Club for their operations. “The boat house for the Rowing and Paddling Club is currently under construction and I am so pleased to see the club has almost reached its goal,” says club secretary and fund-raising co-ordinator Robin Pilon. “Right from the start there has been really great support and everyone wanted to help out, they really wanted to see the Rowing Club have a permanent home in downtown Trenton.” In addition to the donations announced recently, donations and funding for the capital campaign have been received from: Trenval CFDC, the Trenton Kiwanis Club, Belleville Sculler’s Club, Whitley Insurance and Financial Services, Robin and Jacques Pilon, Quinte Patient Transfer Service, Kraft Canada, Quality Custom Blending, Jack Hadley, Tomasso’s Italian Grille, Riverside Auto, Fleming Garrett Sioui, Ruth Larsen, J.

Ag society fund raiser a success

By Steve Jessel

EMC News - Belleville - The second annual Belleville Agricultural Society Pullin’ for a Cure Canadian Cancer Society fundraiser went off without a hitch on Saturday, May 11, at the Quinte Exhibition Racetrack, and society president Marilyn Cotton said it’s an awesome feeling to be able to give back to the community. “It feels really good. As anybody who puts on an event like this knows, there’s a lot of sweat equity that goes into it; so it’s nice for people to come,” she said. “I think it very important [to give back] because without [the community] we wouldn’t survive, so it’s nice to be something that the community participates in and it’s an awesome feeling to give back.” After an inaugural event that raised roughly $4,500 for the Canadian Cancer Society, the event returned new and improved for 2013. Alongside the always-popular horse and tractor pulls, the event this year featured a truck show ’n’ shine and a “dyno” area where motorists could test the raw horsepower of their vehicles. A number of sponsors helped with up to 80 per cent of the organizational costs, allowing more funds to go directly to the Cancer Society, and volunteer Ryan McCaffery said it was

encouraging to see how many people had turned up partway through the event. “It’s awesome, I never would have expected this many people out,” he said. “It’s still early in the day and it’s phenomenal numbers, so I’m really happy about it.”

The goal for this year’s event was to raise double last year’s total, and with an expected 1,500 to 2,000 people attending it was certainly an achievable goal. “We can’t believe how much this event has grown,” Cotton said. “We’re very impressed.”

Young “Jazz Maiden” marks CD release By Richard Turtle

EMC Entertainment - Stirling Steven Rapos knows that in the music business there’s a lot of competition out there, and nothing comes easy. At least, not often. But it didn’t take long before he had to admit his daughter appeared to have a special gift. “I was finishing my own professional music career when she was born,” he says of the now 11-year-old Olivia who has been exposed to music all her life. And, he adds, with the youngster showing early signs of interest, she was enrolled in piano lessons after the family moved to Warkworth. But it didn’t turn out as expected. “Her piano teacher said [Olivia] would never be a concert pianist,” Rapos says with a smile. Instead, he was told, she’s a singer. At the age of six, she demonstrated that she had perfect pitch. The young Rapos offered a glimpse of that singing ability and talent last weekend when she arOlivia Rapos marked the release of her CD Jazz Maiden last weekend at Chickadelic Salvage and Design in Stirling.

EMC News - Madoc - Caley Weese knows that simply being a little different can make you a target for bullies. And she knows how much that can slow you down. But in an effort to raise awareness, as well as continue her own pursuit in the racing world, Weese has put her foot down. In more than a decade of twists and turns on and off the track, she says her passion for racing has helped her overcome many obstacles, including the gender biases that exist both on and off the track, to compete

lease of her CD Jazz Maiden earlier this year. Store owner Kerry Ramsay says the youngster is making quite a name for herself. “We’re celebrating the release of her debut CD,” she said of the special event last weekend, noting it was a perfect opportunity to recognize an emerging local artist. Olivia has been featured in the Toronto Star in a series about child prodigies and will also be the subject of an upcoming feature on the CTV National News. She will be touring with her trio this summer at jazz festivals in southern Ontario and is slated to perform at the Warkworth Lilac Festival at the end of this month. Last summer, her father explains, Olivia performed on the Westben stage as a ten-year-old, “with opera professionals from around the world, and she was one who was singled out [for praise].” Currently studying voice under the tutelage of Westben’s Donna Bennett, Olivia attained her Grade 3 designation with First Class Honours. And, Steven says, she just loves to sing “and

as an equal. But she admits it hasn’t been easy. Last weekend she arrived in Madoc, racing car in tow, to take part in the downtown market’s Anti-Bullying Rally and help raise awareness of the impact of bullying as well as raise some funds for the Kids Help Phone. Bullying is a significant problem, she says, and for some the daily routine of being centred out for being different can have devastating results. And Weese, now entering her 11th season of racing, has no time for that kind of intimidation and her recently launched Weese Racing No

Started last year after discussions with local educational and law enforcement officials, the Carrying Place resident says the campaign has drawn plenty of attention. A logo highlighted racing car with the distinctive 77 doesn’t hurt either. Weese’s team T-shirts were available at the market last Saturday morning, with proceeds going to the Kids Help Phone, as vendors there braved the cooler weather and hoping for better on the official opening this weekend. Weese is looking forward to another season at the Brighton Speedway, setting her sights on a top five finish and further promotion of her anti-bullying campaign. “For $10 you get the T-shirt, a free pass to the [Brighton] speedway and a chance to be in a group photo that day,” she says.

The result is as impressive as her live performance, and the recording has already received significant attention in the music press. “It got a really great response in Cadence magazine in the U.S.,” he says, adding listeners are often disbelieving of her age, particularly given the style and choice of songs. But on the day before Mother’s Day, Olivia was close to home, crooning in the corner behind a microphone for visitors who drifted through the recently opened lifestyle shop on Mill Street where her CDs were available along with numerous other locally sourced items. Further information about Olivia Rapos, including upcoming shows, is available on Facebook.

Truck purchase still an issue By Ray Yurkowski

pairs of which are not financially justified” said public works director Andrew Drzewiecki in his report. After tender, the total price for both vehicles comes in at a few dollars more than $275,800—more than $9,000 under budget. The surplus will be transferred to the equipment reserve fund. In a recorded vote, Mayor Mark Walas, along with Councillors John Martinello and Mary Tadman, voted against the purchase despite council approval with the ratification of the budget.

EMC News - Quinte West - A controversial road allowance on Concession 4 Sidney Ward has been declared surplus and conveyed to Monique Scheerhoorn. “The right of way is there for a reason,” said Chris Doxtator who owns farmland next to the road allowance. “I need it for access to my lot. It is the only access to my property.” He said he has lived there for 35 to 40 years and gets seven tax bills on his 230 acres of land. He said the purchaser should build their own road to their property, not use the road allowance. John Gooding, project and development co-ordinator, said he met on site with Carrie and Chris Doxtator on April 17. “It was discussed that the road allowance is not currently used for access to their farmland,” he stated. “The closure and conveyance of the road allowance does not landlock the Doxtator property.” Mayor John Williams said he thought the issue had been settled. Doxtator said he owns three lots and the land in the centre would be landlocked. Gooding said he can still use the land. Doxtator said it is all in corn. He added that the aggregate holdings could be very valuable piece of property. “This is about people wanting to build a house,” Doxtator said. “It is achievable without the right of way.” Area Planner Scott Pordham said it would need a setback 20 metres wide. Scheerhorn said his lot is 90 feet wide. “I would like to be as far away from the communications tower as possible,” he said, “and put trees there. There are


EMC News - Brighton - Three members of Brighton Council dug in their heels at their regular meeting last week over a public works report that should have been given unopposed approval. At issue was the purchase of a tandem truck and tractor, both approved in the 2013 budget. The truck would replace a 2000 Volvo, severely damaged in a January 2012 incident, and the tractor would supplant a non-functioning old Ford, “the re-

100-year-old maples on the property. It would be a shame to cut them down to make a road.” A meeting with city staff had taken place with another neighbour, Mark Russett, who said his intention was future severance of two lots and bringing the road allowance up to municipal standards. Russett was advised that his property at 665 Harrington Road was zoned Agricultural which discourages new lot creation. Lots are required to have frontage on an improved road, not a road allowance. Doxtator said none of the land is A-1 agricultural and the area around the tower is all full of water with beavers in it.

Pordham said it is zoned agricultural with environmental potential. Terry Cassidy commented that closure of the road allowance is not required for the buyers to build a home. “It’s nice to have extra land, but that interferes with the way of doing business. This is not resolved. There is not clear accommodation. These people are going to be neighbours and it needs to be worked out.” Keith Reid suggested that all three parties get together and work it out so everybody is happy. A vote for support of the conveyance of the road allowance was won, with four in favour and three against.

Cadets granted “Freedom of the City”

EMC News - Belleville City Council Monday supported a call from Mayor Neil Ellis (l) to grant “Freedom of the City” to RSCSS Quinte Sea Cadet Corps on June 1 to mark its 85th year of service as a youth training organization. Present to back him up were the corps commanding officer Lieutenant (N) John Wildjee, senior cadet Coxswain Chelsea Allen and Cadet Bradley Dall.

The Committee, co-chaired by Lynn Lake and Karen Whitley, has been putting together the details to ensure this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s event builds on the successes of the previous years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The theme this year is going to al-

low us to have a magical night highlighting the luxury of train travel with stops in London, Paris and Istanbul,â&#x20AC;? says co-chair Karen Whitley. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are pulling out all the stops to ensure it will be a special evening of celebration that raises lots of money to buy equipment for Trenton Memorial Hospital.â&#x20AC;? Last year the Gala and Raffle raised

$284,032 Net to be used for priority medical equipment at Trenton Memorial Hospital. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With the challenges currently facing the delivery of health care in the province it is more important than ever to support our doctors and nurses by ensuring they have the medical equipment they need,â&#x20AC;? says Wendy Warner of the Trenton Memorial Hospital Foundation (TMHF). â&#x20AC;&#x153;Provincial health care funding does not pay for medical equipment;

hospitals rely on their communities to raise the money needed to make the required purchases.â&#x20AC;? Have you been looking for a way to support your local hospital?

boys U16 soccer team played in their first tournament of the year this weekend when they headed to Oshawa for the Frank Sobil Classic. They finished the weekend with a 2 - 2 record but were unable to make the championship game. It was a solid performance for the team who not only went with a short bench but also had to fight injuries and the cold weather while there. On Saturday, the Comets beat Whitby 3 - 1 with goals by Mason Norlock, Neil Williams and Beau Tolls. Clark Albert was in net. In the second game Belleville came up short and lost 4 - 2. Glen Per-

split between Albert until he was injured and then Tolls. On Sunday, the Comets’ first game was a loss 3 - 1 to the Markham Lightning. Jesse Elliott had the lone goal and Beau Tolls was strong in net. Our second game we got back on the winning track and won 2 - 0 versus Ajax F.C. Cole Siegner and Jimmy Myles found the back of the net and Tolls had the shutout. A special thank-you goes out to all the mothers who spent Mother’s Day huddled under blankets in one degree weather while it tried to hail.

Waste Diversion Ontario checks out the Big Blue Box By Kate Everson

EMC News - Trenton - A tour of the Recycling Plant on West Street was part of the package for the visiting CEO of Waste Diversion Ontario on May 8. “Good things are happening in small communities in Ontario,” Michael Scott said. “Waste Diversion Ontario is monitoring how effective recycling is across the province,” he said. “We monitor how they are managed, if they meet targets, address any issues of funding and think ahead of how we can divert more.” He said the complexity of the process is not known to most residents who simply put out their Blue Box every week. “It is important that taxpayers understand they are paying for half the cost of the Blue Box program,” he said. “The manufacturers pay the other half. It’s a $200-million-a-year program.” Some of the problems they are dealing with is that packaging is changing all the time. They replace equipment every five to ten years so it is hard to keep up. Different types of plastic are coming into the market and the labelling is changing. “Will we get producers to pay the whole cost of recycling?” he asked. “Right now manufacturers of computers, flat screen TVs and cellphones are paying millions for their own recycling. Used tires manufacturers are also paying. That is what is known as an eco-fee. It is a misunderstood fee. It is not a tax. Not one cent goes to the government. It is a fee by the manufacturer to recover costs.” He said the Trenton facility ranks among the highest recovery rates in the province. Challenges are in volumes. Terry Cassidy, chair of the Waste Herb Lambacher of HGC Management in Brantford will be taking over operations of the Quinte Waste Solutions in November.

Spring craft show maintains charm

EMC Lifestyles - Trenton - Artisans from across the Quinte area put their best creations forward for the annual Spring Show by the Quinte Region Craft Guild in the Knights of Columbus Hall Saturday. It was a sullen day for weather, but organizers were optimistic that weekenders might like to enjoy the results of some

of the area’s best craftspeople instead of working outdoors. Adding to the attraction was a free rose for all the mothers who attended. The guild has dozens of members representing many and varied craft activities, with some 30 displays in the main hall for the spring show. Organizers described it as “normal” for

the spring event, which is traditionally the smaller of the guild’s two annual shows. The main one will be in Bayside Secondary School on October 12, with a further pre-Christmas show November 2 and 3, back at the Knights of Columbus Hall. Craft skills represented included glass garden art, metal art, marble clocks, paintings on rocks, body protection products,

jewellery, hair accessories, woodworking, knitting, crocheting and sewing. Among those displaying was Belleville’s “Mr. Food Bank,” Charles Burghgraef, who displayed a wide range of delicate wood scroll works. “I was a brick layer,” he said, “until I developed a back problem.” He happened across wood scroll craft and has made a wide-

spread reputation for his fine work, done with scroll saw blades little larger than a needle. One work, a three-dimensional elk, requires special techniques, he explained, demonstrating how a pattern traced on a piece of wood could be carved into an exquisite three-dimensional work of art.

Prairie Oyster’s Keith Glass coming to Tweed

EMC Entertainment - Tweed Owner Lawrence Ramsay says he is very excited about Keith Glass coming to the Tweedsmuir on May 24.

“I asked Keith how he heard about the Tweedsmuir and the small town of Tweed and he said he was in Nashville and people were talking about the

live entertainment here. “For us this is a real feather in our cap and it is exciting to think that word has spread that far.”

He said current employees will fill out applications to continue as existing staff, but there will be a new fleet of vehicles. “The operations will stay the same,” he said. Lambacher was in charge of the recycling for this area in 1991 for 11 years and said he is glad to be working here again. Things have changed since he had the first contract when the plant

started up. “This was the start of the Blue Box program,” he said. “We just had four separations: newspapers, beverage containers: aluminum, tin and glass and two-litre PET bottles. There was more sorting on the truck into more compartments. Now they do it all here. It’s a trade-off, but makes it quicker to load. It costs $100 an hour to drive the truck so we are saving in costs and efficiency.” Michael Scott, Councillor Terry Cassidy, Herb Lambacher, Rick Clow and William Mueller toured the plant.

Management Board, said this area has really bought into the Blue Box system. They are doing source separation and providing a cleaner product for the plant. “They make the effort,” he said. Cassidy noted that Belleville and Quinte West are launching an organic waste diversion this fall, helping reduce landfill costs. Herb Lambacher, president of HGC Management, will be the

A very “HOT” kickoff for Tourism Awareness Week

By Scott Pettigrew

EMC News - Tweed - The word “HOT” is an acronym for Hastings (County) Opportunities (in) Tourism. The enthusiasm of emcee Doug Stephenson was contagious as he started off a launch event at the Poplars Golf Course on May 10 for Tourism Awareness Week (TAW) where a number of business people and political dignitaries were in attendance. “We are here for HOT-TAW to promote Tourism Awareness Week and it is very important we work together,” said Stephenson. “I for one would like to take it one step further; we are all going to hash-tag HOT-TAW and we are all going to be on Facebook and at events throughout the week, but I say we pound the pavement and make it so people never forget what HOT and TAW are. Every opportunity we have, why not use HOT-TAW as an expression.” Doug went on to use HOT-TAW in several humorous ways and had the capacity crowd very entertained with his anecdotes. He introduced the visiting dignitaries including MP Daryl Kramp, MPP Todd Smith and Warden Rick Phillips. “Tourism Awareness Week is a great opportunity for residents to experience the local tourism attractions in our community,” said Warden Rick Phillips. “Tourism creates more than 2,500 full-time and part-time seasonal jobs and attracts over 1.5 million visitors who spend about $200 million in our communities annually.” The launch event for Tourism Awareness Week was organized by Tourism Development Co-ordinator Kasey Pollard who said the purpose of the kickoff

event was “… to help identify areas for tourism development, assess our competitive advantages and help Hastings County become a destination of choice. After last year’s launch at Farmtown Park and hosting a trade show that showcased local busi-

“I want to provide you with Creative Hastings Unplugged.” nesses, we came up with a new approach for 2013; this year we’ve decided to focus on getting people out to the businesses so they can enjoy the shops, hospitality and experiences firsthand.” Andrew Redden is the economic development officer for Hastings County and he

took the opportunity to talk about Creative Hastings. “I want to provide you with Creative Hastings Unplugged. We have had Creative Hastings take place over the last year which is an evening full of a talk about the creative economy where we introduce creative entrepreneurs for three minutes each to talk about who they are, and their business. This evening we have invited four speakers who will do short ‘elevator speeches’ about their businesses.” The guest speakers included Poplars Golf Course Owner Jack Gorman, Karen Enright of Enright Cattle, Trevor Telford from the Black River Retreat and Deborah Richardson from Drum Nation Festival who brought a large contingent of drummers.

Turtles in Ontario are disappearing! Seven of the eight species of Ontario’s turtles are now listed as “Species at Risk.” Turtles are critical to the health of our freshwater ecosystems. With your help, Kawartha Turtle Trauma Centre can win $100,000 to fund their “From the Road … to Recovery: One Year of Turtle Conservation in Action” project. These muchneeded funds will be used in the

following ways: • Provide emergency medical and rehabilitative care to injured native turtles. • Incubate and hatch young turtles from eggs collected or harvested from injured adult female turtles admitted to the hospital. • Deliver Turtle Education programming, which encourages Ontarians to become wetland stewards and to see the valuable

role turtles play to our freshwater ecosystems. • Field study using Headstarting as a conservation tool by raising, releasing and then using radio telemetry to track threatened Blanding’s Turtles. • To increase and strengthen partnerships within the scientific community, both locally and globally, to collect and contribute data on the current state of turtle

populations. Kawartha Turtle Trauma Centre, <>, is Ontario’s only wildlife hospital dedicated to the medical care and rehabilitation of Ontario’s native turtle species with the goal of releasing them back into their natural habitat.

Some great Canadian road trips, both near and far By John M. Smith

EMC Lifestyles - Now that we’ve finally warmed up here in Ontario, our thoughts have turned to such things as spring flowers, cutting the grass, gardening and a summer holiday trip. As you probably already know by now, I’ve been fortunate to check out a lot of this great big world, but don’t forget that we have many great opportunities for exploration right here in our very own beautiful and diversified country. Here’s a list of some Canadian road trips to consider, both near and far: Near: Sandbanks Provincial Park - We can walk far out into Lake Ontario, partake in a swim and a picnic, and enjoy magnificent sand dunes right here in “The County.” I used to tell my unbelieving students that it was even better than Hawaii’s Waikiki Beach! It’s a great camping spot too. 1000 Islands - Take a boat cruise amidst these fascinating islands from either Kingston or Gananoque and perhaps add a stop at Boldt Castle on Heart Island. Upper Canada Village - In this 1860s-era village near Morrisburg, we witness what life was like back in “the good old days.” Costumed interpreters perform agricultural and commercial chores, and the whole family can even take a horse-drawn wagon ride. You’ll visit a church, school, tavern, bakery, steam-powered flour mill, and a blacksmith shop. Algonquin Provincial Park - We’re very fortunate to have this beautiful park of 7,725 square kilometres so near to us. It’s a great place for family camping, hiking, biking, and participating in a wildlife adventure such as a wolf howl, fishing, or simply looking for bear and moose. African Lion Safari - Near Cambridge is this exciting drive-through park, where the whole family can enjoy seeing such animals as lions, monkeys, giraffes, and zebras roaming around freely within the 750-acre area. Niagara Falls - The actual falls itself is well worth seeing, but there’s also a plethora of attractions and activities available in the area. There’s also a wonderful, scenic drive along the Niagara Parkway to nearby Niagara-onthe-Lake. Far: The Viking Trail, Newfoundland - This 450-kilometre one-way trip takes you from Deer Lake, through Gros Morne National Park, and along Newfoundland’s rugged coastline to the northern tip of the island. Be sure to check out L’Anse Aux Meadows, which was visited by Vikings as early as the 11th century, establishing the first European settlement in North America. Prince Edward Island National Park, Prince Edward Island - Explorer Jacques Cartier referred to Prince Edward Island as “the fairest land ‘tis possible to see,” and your excursion to this “fair land” should include a drive along the Gulf Shore Parkway, offering you views of magnificent saltwater beaches and sweeping sand dunes along the Gulf of St. Lawrence. Be sure to check out Cavendish, Stanhope, and North Rustico. You’ll find the headquarters of Prince Edward Island National Park at Dalvay and a protected colony of great blue herons on nearby Rustico Island. The Cabot Trail, Nova Scotia - Renowned inventor Alexander Graham Bell once said that “I have seen the Canadian and American Rockies, the Andes and the Alps and the Highlands of Scotland, but for simple beauty, Cape Breton outrivals them all.” Begin your 295-kilometre loop at Baddeck, where you’ll want to check out the Alexander Graham Bell Historic Park, and then head north to Margaree Harbour, with its magnificent view of the Northumberland Strait; Cheticamp a French Acadian village; Cape Breton Highlands National Park with its awesome hiking

Cyclists on the Icefields Parkway.

trails; Cape North, the trail’s northernmost point; Ingonish, one of the oldest settled areas on the Atlantic seaboard, and then back to Baddeck. The Qu’Appelle Valley, Saskatchewan - According to native legend, a young brave yelled out “Qu’appelle?” (“Who’s calling?”) as he rushed back to his dying girlfriend, and supposedly his voice can still be heard echoing across the Qu’Appelle Valley. It’s a marvellous, glacier-etched sunken garden stretching across much of southern Saskatchewan. The Icefields Parkway, Alberta The 290-kilometre one-way trip from Jasper to Banff, through the heart of the Rockies, is my personal favourite. The route includes two spectacular mountain passes, Sunwapta and Bow, and a stop at the Columbia Icefield, where you can take a snowcoach onto the largest icecap south of the Arctic. You’ll find incredible side trips on wonderful hiking trails to such inspirational points as Athabasca Falls, Bridal Veil Falls, Peyto Glacier, and Parker Ridge. Vancouver Island - There’s a great road route from Victoria to Tofino, where you’ll find the awesome Pacific Rim National Park Reserve, with its lush rainforests and rugged coastline. Recommended stops along the way include Butchart Gardens with its spectacular floral displays, Nanaimo with its tasty Nanaimo bar trail and bathtub races, and MacMillan Provincial Park with its Cathedral Grove, a highwayaccessible and magnificent old growth Douglas fir forest. There are, of course, many other wonderful Canadian road trips worthy of our consideration both near home and far away. Just get out there and enjoy our awesome country!

There’s a great walkway/trail through a Douglas fir forest on the way to Tofino, B.C., in MacMillan Provincial Park.

Public safety should always come first

Reality Check:

Sheila Wray Gregoire EMC Lifestyles - I want to live in a world where you can go for a test drive with people interested in buying your truck without getting kidnapped. I want to live in a world where a teenage girl can accept a ride from a friend’s

father without winding up a captive for ten years. I want to live in a world where you can send your children to kindergarten without worrying that they will be shot. But we don’t live in such a world, because we are far more concerned with rights than we are with public safety. Now I am a fierce advocate for freedoms like freedom of speech, because without freedom society disintegrates into tyranny. But I also believe in the right to life, and when someone has consistently demonstrated that they do not value life, public safety should come first. Take the way we deal with the mentally ill. When family members feel threatened they have no recourse, because it’s very difficult to commit someone to hospital. Most mentally ill people aren’t violent, of course, but when family members become scared, where can

The Good Earth: EMC Lifestyles - Gentle Reader, a weed is a plant growing in the wrong place. Here a few that receive fewer mentions than the dandelion but we all know them. The jury is still out on whether or not they are, indeed, a weed. What do you think? Echium vulgare    Viper’s Bugloss, Blueweed - invades meadows, pastures; - has interesting potential for treating some mental disorders; - sharp spines that lodge in the skin and become infected, like cactus; - the absolute best exotic for bees; - perfect for xeriscaping large areas; - €1.62 for a 200-seed packet in England, a noxious weed in parts of Canada. I’m sitting on the fence with this one probably because it is one of the few “weeds” not growing on my estate.   Portulaca oleracea  Common purslane, Neverdie, Red Pigweed - difficult to control: many seeds and broken bits will become a new plant;

- high in vitamin C and is often used in salads; - a nuisance in cultivated fields and vegetable gardens; - 92 medicinal uses listed in Wikipedia, plus a caution that it contains heart attack causing toxins. Dan’s commentary: Not be confused with Portulaca grandiflora, a popular flower plant, aka Moss Rose. You might be seeing this in unmulched gardens, veggie and flower alike. You should not be seeing this in your lawn; if you are, get a book about growing good grass. Control and/or harvest is the same: let it get big enough to easily pull out the entire plant. Consign to a hot-pile compost or dice into a salad; your choice. (I don’t recommend the latter but some literature makes that suggestion.) If you have a strong heart but lots of other problems, then this is the herb for you.   Stellaria media  Common Chickweed

they turn? We must do a better job of helping these people and their families so that things like the Newtown tragedy won’t happen. But what about those who are just plain evil, like Ariel Castro, who held three women captive for a decade? What can be done about monsters like that? How about coming down hard the first time someone is violent? This guy did not grab three women out of the blue; he decided to turn his ex-wife black and blue first. He broke her nose, dislocated her shoulder, and shoved her down stairs. She met the man she would marry at one of her many trips to the emergency room. Perhaps if we treated domestic violence more seriously this guy would have either been locked up or on a watch list. Yet in reading his story something else strikes me. Apparently he came from a very rough childhood. That does

not in any way excuse what he did; most people who grow up in rough childhoods grow into wonderful adults. Nevertheless, I have yet to read a story of a horrific murderer or sexual offender who came from a healthy background. So I have to ask: what are we doing to protect children? I have several friends who are foster parents, and what I have witnessed has made me completely lose faith in our system. I have seen toddlers come into care who are already violent. They’re confused, and they’re angry, and they can be mean. And yet they are also just little children who want to be cuddled. In foster care they begin to flourish.   But I have seen judges, again and again, send these kids back to parents who messed them up in the first place, despite Children’s Aid pleas to give these kids a chance. Parents’ rights, even if they have starved their kids, caused

If in your lawn, get a good book about growing grass. Cerastium glomeratum  Mouseeared Chickweed, Sticky Chickweed Dan’s note: A little bit confusing here. C. glomeratum, C. fontanum, C. vulgatum which one might think is better applied to Stellaria media, have all been used for the same plant. - grows in dry sandy areas, moist depression, woodlands and open meadows;

- rabbits, sparrows and bees enjoy the fruits of this plant; - best control is to grow good grass (read the book), hoe before setting seed, mulch in bare spots. Dan’s commentary: IMHO, both chickweeds are weeds. I don’t need to grow fodder for sheep, I don’t want bunny rabbits on my lawn and there are a lot of other plants for sparrows and bees. Plantago major, Plantago lanceolata, common plantain and buckhorn plantain respectively. Also “white man’s foot” for reasons similar to - toothaches, mouth sores, insect stings (chew a leaf and press the green, gooey, gummy mess on the bite.

No going in and out of the system for years before being placed up for adoption; they’d go up early, when they’re two, and when a lot of love can make such a big difference. If I ran the world, men who were violent against women would be punished severely and put on a permanent watch list so that when someone went missing, their house would be searched automatically. If I ran the world, people who were violent would not get multiple chances. We would say, “The safety of a 14-yearold girl matters more than the rights of a 40-year-old abuser.” Because the innocent deserve better. And we, as a society, have failed them.

It might be an unwanted plant but it tells you a lot about soil conditions, e.g. really does well in compact soil so if you got it, maybe it’s time for aeration. It is easily managed in both lawns and gardens so it should not be a nuisance. If you have it in your grass … get the book.

Jamming on a Sunday afternoon By Judy Backus

musicians, all of whom clearly enjoy themselves while entertaining an appreciative audience, with many enjoying a turn or two around the busy dance floor. A total of 15 entertainers, from as far away as Kingston, signed up to perform with one of the two stage bands. As event chair Leo Provost said midway through the afternoon, “We’ve had packed houses with an average of 160 people. It’s been a real excellent year!” This particular jam session included a free buffet meal of sal-

ads, cold meat, buns and squares, intended to show the club’s appreciation to both the performers and members of the audience for their ongoing support. One couple, Isabella and Cyril Shaw, who attend on a regular basis, indicated they felt that Marmora was the country music capital of the area, with Cyril saying, “I just love going to the jam sessions. They’ve got the best one in the area!” Money raised during the events is used by the Lions in support community services.

Barb Bamber, of Belleville, was one of 15 musicians to entertain with one of two stage bands on May 12 during the Marmora Crowe Valley Lions Club’s final jam session of the season. Her choices of music included Coat of Many Colours which resulted in a crowded dance floor. Pictured with Bamber on stage are Ray Macmillan, Boyd Warren, Glenn Barnett, Maurice O’Donnell, Gord Youmans and Peter Waite. Photo: Judy Backus R0012096688

EMC Entertainment - Marmora - The Marmora Crowe Valley Lions Club final jam session of the season ended on a high note on May 12 when 185 people from both the local area and beyond dropped by the community centre for an afternoon of country music.

Nurses celebrate Nurses Week and VON Week

EMC News - Belleville National Nurses Week was celebrated at the VON offices in Hastings, Northumberland and Prince Edward County on May 6 to 12 followed by VON Week. “I get satisfaction in helping people get better,” said VON nurse Melanie Hayes working out of the clinic at 47 South Pinnacle Street in Belleville. “Our clinic is funded by the Community Care Access Centre,” Melanie added. “It helps all ages, from children to seniors.” Melanie has been a Registered Nurse for 12 years in Belleville, doing home care before the clinic was set up five years ago. She says she enjoys working with people and helping them maintain their health. She adds that people are very appreciative of the services offered at the clinic. They can come there for wound care, intravenous therapy, chemo injections and other services that save them

from going to a doctor or a hospital. “They don’t have to keep going back to emerg where it is all clogged up,” she notes. The clinic is by appointment and is open 365 days a year, seven days a week. Four VON registered nurses work in shifts to make sure someone is there all the time. “The VON still do home care for people but only if necessary,” she says. “The clinic is available for anyone who is ambulatory [able to walk].” The clinic serves a 30-mile radius from Belleville. Staff work on ten-hour shifts and get to know their clients who appreciate a familiar face. “We need more funding from Community Care providers,” admitted Melanie. “We are under funded for the work we do.” She said the budget is always under funded compared to hospitals. “It’s a tough thing,” she said. “We are stretched so thin.” VON is a national not-

for-profit health care organization and registered charity. Since its inception in 1897, VON has been committed to caring for individuals through an expanding assortment of health and community support programs. VON Hastings,

Northumberland, and Prince Edward VON Hastings, Northumhas been in operation in the Quinte area berland, and Prince Edward since 1917 and is staffed by over 600 serves thousands of clients employees and volunteers, who oversee providing services that help the operation of approximately 30 programs and services.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Starsâ&#x20AC;? concert serves up the best of Festival By Richard Turtle

EMC Entertainment - Stirling Many of the top performers in last monthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Stirling Festival of Sacred Praise wrapped up the 63rd annual event last Friday night with the traditional Stars of the Festival concert. Musicians, singers and choirs and orators impressed the crowd and concert officials who were there to present numerous Festival awards. Once again there was a very strong showing of local talent, says Festival Committee President Donna Russett. The event is hosted by St. Paulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s United Church in Stirling each

year in late April and regularly draws participants from as far away as Verona, Picton and Peterborough. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The numbers were down a little bit from last year,â&#x20AC;? she says of Festival participation, in part because of a lack of entries in school choir categories, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but we expect to see that come back up again.â&#x20AC;? And with more than a dozen participants moving on to the provincial level, she adds, the competition featured several exceptional performances. The Festival has long been a vehicle for young and talented

performers to express themselves in song and music with many returning year after year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wonderful to see them grow,â&#x20AC;? Russett says. Awards were handed out throughout the evening and at the close of the concert, she spoke of one such performer when presenting the Stirling Festival of Sacred Praise Scholarship.

Veteran’s service medal a mystery By Diane Sherman

EMC News - Madoc - Local veteran Don Ash is turning 91 years old in July. Forty years ago he found a service medal belonging to a Private David Brockie, who was killed in France in 1915. Retired teacher Charles Gordon and past president of the national Royal Canadian Legion Jack Frost did some research and found that Brockie’s mother’s name was Annie, and she

was living in Hobkirk, Roxburgh, Scotland, at the time Brockie enlisted to go out with the 29th Battalion to France. Address of next of kin was given as Hawthornside, Harwick, Scotland. Apparently, Brockie’s two sisters immigrated to California with one sister eventually coming to Montreal. Private Brockie served only four weeks overseas and was killed by machine

gun fire. Ash, Gordon and Frost recognize the medal had to have been issued to “someone” after Brockie was killed. Gordon said he has come near an end with online research and would have to go in person to search archives. Don Ash says he’s not getting any younger, and would like to solve the mystery of how this particular medal came to be in his back yard.

David Brockie was born December 12, 1878, wounded in action at Trench E.6, November 4, 1915. He died two days later from his wounds and is buried at the Bailleul Communal Cemetery Extension in France. If you have any ideas pertaining to this search for solutions please email <> or call Branch 363 Royal Canadian Legion, Madoc, with a message for Mr. Ash.

This is the coin-sized medallion Don Ash found some 40 years ago in Madoc. The ribbon was added by Veterans Services in Ottawa, though current research indicates Private David Brockie had no connections to the village of Madoc. Records indicate he had settled in western Canada and had sisters in Montreal and California. Photo: Diane Sherman

Artist bringing her felt creations Art in the Park By Sue Dickens

EMC Lifestyles - Campbellford Artists and artisans will gather this weekend for the third annual Warkworth Art in the Park Juried Show and Sale at Old Mill Park. One of these artists is Suzanne Towns, a felt maker who is inspired by the outdoors. “The source of my inspiration comes from nature so texture, shape, colour and that sort of thing … from there it evolves,” she said while being interviewed at her home on ten acres of property just north of Campbellford, where she lives with her husband.

“I have always been dallying in the creative world … sometimes I am struck by whimsical or spiritual possibilities.”

Her artistic abilities are not only in felt making. She has taken courses in wire sculpture and silversmithing and enrolled in an oil painting course in Warkworth too. “As a child creatively I was always drawing,” she said. “I have always been dallying in the creative world … sometimes I am struck by whimsical or spiritual possibilities.” And when she is not felt making or teaching felt making, she busies herself in other ways that are interesting. Currently she is taking a certified canine massage therapy course. Yes, she loves animals and has dogs and cats of her own. She did obedience training for dogs in Campbellford for a number of years. Now she does only private lessons at her home. But for those who want to see her works of art with felt she will be at Art in the Park in Warkworth this weekend, along with many others showing and selling their creations. Art in the Park takes place Saturday, May 18, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, May 19, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is free. For more information go to: <http://>.

This is also where her studio is located and where she conducts workshops on felt making. “Felt is the first textile known to man; it dates back to the nomadic people,” she commented. This ancient art has attracted Towns so much that she decided to learn the process in its purest form. Self taught, she described the intensive labour involved in felt mak-

ing. “Using sheep’s fleece the technique is called wet felting and it is when you combine water and soap and the wool fibres that are laid in layers so you get the fibres to intertwine,” she explained, making it all sound so easy. But it’s not. Combining layers of wool roving into one flat piece of felt fabric takes time and patience. “That surprises a lot of people when they take my workshop,” she noted. For Towns though it is all part of the creative process. “It takes several hours to do a scarf and it’s all hands on. There is no sewing involved and it involves a lot of kneading,” she explained. “When I made this scarf, for example, I chose to dye with natural dyes so that makes the process even longer,” she added, pointing to a scarf with silk and felt fibres. “I like wool because I like what you can do with it but first of all I like the fact that it is a renewable resource,” she commented. Towns creates three dimensional vessels, scarves, bags and wall hangings and she does them all without a pattern. Some of her work can be found at Eclectic Mix in Warkworth and the Impresario Artisan Market in Cobourg and she also sells online.
