EMC News - Belleville The wheels keep on rolling, with or without donations, but every bit helps. The annual Wheels of Hope program funded by the Canadian Cancer Society is perhaps one of the most important programs to cancer survivors explained Sue Rollins, fund-raising co-ordinator for the Canadian Cancer Society, Hastings-Prince Edward County Unit, in Belleville. Rollins noted this during the launch of the Wheels For Hope campaign at Kindness Court in the Quinte Mall on Wednesday morning. Rollins explained that the Wheels of Hope is the fundraising initiative that runs from September 5 until December 23. “The funds we raise during that period of time go to support our local transportation program for clients to go back and forth to their cancer treatment appointments,” explained Rollins. She said a little over 1,200 people use the service locally to transport patients to the closest cancer treatment clinic in Kingston. “It’s a pretty vital and critical service that we provide to them; in some cases they may not be able to get to their treatments by themselves,” she said. The program is now in its fourth year; last year the campaign generated over $68,000 to offset the cost of the program. Rollins said this year the fund-raising goal for the program is set at $72,000. But those figures do not encompass the cost of the entire program. Rollins reported it rang in at $180,000 to run. Please see “Volunteer” on page 3

Casino zoning stymies council

EMC News - Belleville Zoning for a casino may be the only involvement for Belleville council for any potential site, but it still took

up almost an hour of council’s time Monday as one of the sites turned down by council’s planning committee drew a challenger from development representative

John Halloran. The property is at the junction of Millennium Drive and Highway 62, adjacent to Highway 401. It drew petitions from a near-

by church plus a petition signed by dozens of residents in the area, although most were well outside the normal 400-foot radius for required planning notifica-

tion. Halloran asked that council defer adopting the planning report to allow input for modifications on what Please see “Zoning” on page 3

son’s it is simply a matter of staying as healthy as possible. “For me that is where it started, trying to find out how I could stay as healthy as I could in order to support my daughter in her life,” she said. She said in the process of that she discovered so many others were struggling with the same issues. “There are a lot of young onset people living in the community like myself. They are just trying to live well with Parkinson’s and just trying to help them through the same things and helping them deal with things that I figured out how to deal with myself,” she said. Bruder expressed a slight air of disappointment on Saturday just prior to the

start of the annual Super Walk for Parkinson’s, with near torrential rainfall and gusting blasts of wind that deterred all but the most dedicated of fund raisers. In the end the walk was cancelled officially; the walkers that did participate did so of their own dedication. Bruder said there was little to no chance of matching last year’s total of $7,000. “We we’re hoping to raise about $500 more than that, but considering the weather I don’t think we will reach that,” she said. She estimated that just over $4,000 would be generated locally for Parkinson’s research. The Belleville walk ran in conjunction with 95 other walks across the country with a national fund-raising goal set at $3 million.

COED one of Belleville’s hidden jewels By Michael J Brethour

EMC News - Belleville Continuing On In Education is of the little hidden jewels within the friendly city. Some may even marvel at the fact that the organization’s fully supported, community based day program that offers a person-centred approach to adults with developmental and/or physical challenges has been around for 25 years. Regardless, last Saturday at the cafeteria of the Highland Shores Children’s Aid Society, the community non-profit organization celebrated 25 years of service. The purpose of the organization’s program is to provide activities and educational opportunities that will increase participants’ levels of self-sufficiency, self-direction and self-discipline. The goal is to empower individuals to overcome barriers

while reducing the risk of isolation for the participant, and also the caregiver. Individuals are encouraged to be valued and contributing members within their local community, and society. Chris Houlden, instructor and administrator of the program, explained the organization strives to provide assistance to individuals with personal goal setting; providing resources and opportunities to work toward the achievement of these goals. She said currently 30 individuals come to the organization on a full- and parttime basis for the programs. Houlden noted although the group had its funding cut from the board of education several years ago, the organization keeps the doors open thanks to community donations in addition to United Way and Trillium funding. The organization, located

at 249 William Street, is focused on promoting awareness about the existence of the agency. “I think a lot of people don’t know that we are around,” stated Houlden. She said the organization was initially formed in 1986 with a focus on numeric lessons and literacy. Nowadays the organization has also added work placements for their clients. “The goal is to allow our clients as much independence as possible,” she said. The day consisted of a mixer of participants, their families, employees and volunteers socializing and highlighting the achievements of the program over the past 25 years. For more information on the organization drop into their William Street location or call them at 613-9628350.

he said was simply a “conceptual” plan he presented to the meeting the previous week. He pointed out that a petition from the church included many names from outside Belleville completely, and a second petition included many names from Gavey Street and others in the Deerfield subdivision. He stressed that his property is bounded by commercial and industrial zoned lands, including the large Lowe’s store, storage facilities and other commercial and industrial operations. On Cloverleaf Drive alone, there are several onstreet or back yard commercial or industrial uses.  He said that when the planning committee faulted him for not having room for expansion, he explained that reasonable expansion is already include in the plan, and he could easily increase the required parking areas. As for a proposed ten-storey hotel his plan showed, that too can be changed, he argued. Council spent a long time wrestling with how or whether the issue could  or should be referred back to the Planning Committee. Councillor Jackie Denyes was adamant that there is no point in reconsidering as the committee got all the input it needed from neighbours and wants to respect their viewpoint. Planning chair CouncillorTom Lafferty said he accepted Halloran’s points which included new information the committee

should examine and discuss. Councillor Jodie Jenkins called for a formal definition of “casino,” but his request was ruled out of order. The matter was referred back to the next Planning Committee meeting, in October, by a 5 - 4 recorded vote. Council also received a report from its auditors showing a “strong financial situation” for Belleville and recognition of many millions of dollars invested into new infrastructure projects over the past two years. Despite the auditors’ complimentary review, Councillor Tom Lafferty reminded that council faces some liabilities for which it is not fully prepared, especially funding of the pension funds for OMERS employees and obligations for cleanup of “brown” sites and other environmental issues. Sam Brady and Jennifer Allen formed a deputation concerning new developments at the East Hill Playground which will be officially opened on September 21 at 4 p.m.  Brady was particularly excited about a new style of playground equipment developed especially with autistic children in mind, but a fun complex for all children, called Mikko’s Puzzle.  He said the committee is continuing to work toward adequate washroom facilities in the park.

EMC News - Stirling - Local officials were eager to participate earlier this week in a ground breaking ceremony that marks the first significant residential development in the village in more than a decade. Stirling-Rawdon Mayor Rodney Cooney, along with Councillors Wilfred Shier, Grant Hagerman and Jeremy Solmes, was joined by Dor-Ann Homes Office Manager Jamie O’Shea and the first of several pieces of equipment on a site where four new homes are expected to be built in the coming months. O’Shea says the construction represents the first phase in a subdivision just west of the FrankfordStirling Road and north of Rawdon Creek where plans eventually call for just over 40 homes. Lot sizes planned for the development are about 55 x 110 feet. Cooney says these first steps toward residential de-

The Dor-Ann construction and the recently approved plan for a subdivision south of Wells Ford could account for nearly one-third of that future development. “We have to get started,” Cooney says of new residential construction in Stirling, noting the future bodes well for the community. New home construction, work well under way on a new school slated for opening in the fall of 2013, significant arena improvements in the works and the potential for development of a pair of soon to be vacated school buildings could spell a range of new housing and service options for residents of all ages with differing needs, he says.

EMC News - Belleville - It may be a goal of heroic proportions, but the United Way of Quinte doesn’t necessarily need a hero, they just need the community. The organization announced earlier last week that their 2012 campaign goal is set at a sturdy $1.925 million. With the help of local sponsors and donations, the United Way funds 85 programs and 42 local agencies, mainly those in the social

Way has re-established a lot of relationships in the community and is now present in many more workplaces in the payroll deduction program. “We feel the goal is obtainable with the community’s help,” she said Gilbert said the agency was able to establish different streams of funding last year including organizational grants for non-profit agencies. “Last year alone there were 55,000 individuals or families

that accessed one of our 42 agencies and that is astounding,” she said. She said the need in the community does not stop hence the reasoning behind United Way increasing their goals. “We know there is always more we can do to help our agencies in their programs that service this community,” said Gilbert.

Gilbert said that with the community on board she is confident of success with this year’s campaign. “I have been on board just a year and a half now, but it never ceases to amaze me the level of giving in Hastings Prince Edward County. Certainly with our achievement last year was a sign that the community is in support of the way we are doing busi-

ness,” she said. “I think the fact that the dollars stay local has an impact on the level of giving as well.” She added on a final note that no donation is too small, that United Way is grateful for any support they can get. For more information on how you can donate to the United Way Quinte go to <www.unitedwayofquinte. ca> or call 613-962-9531.

EMC News - Belleville After literally years of debate and consideration, the Hastings and Prince Edward Counties Health Unit is finally making progress toward a new head office. Building chair James McBride reported to the board’s meeting last Wednesday that his committee has selected a project management firm, the Ottawa-based MHPM company “unanimously” following a review of proposals earlier this summer. That company, he added, is already preparing to send out specifications for a request for proposals to seven architectural firms decided earlier. The project managers will examine the results, which are scheduled to be in their hands in time for sorting down to two for the building committee’s next meeting on September 27 from which a single recom-

Belleville EMC - Thursday, September 13, 2012

mendation will be presented at the board’s next meeting on October 3. The joint two-county health unit has been battling space problems for many years, with some operations housed in off-site locations. Plans to add a second storey to the existing North Park Street building were examined in detail in recent months with final report that it was not financially nor structurally feasible. The board also revisited an issue from earlier in the year to cut out dental screening services to longterm-care homes in its jurisdiction, a practice of some years standing. With lingering opposition from member Ron Poste, the board adopted a report from Janet Moorhead-Cassidy, director of family health. She gave a detailed report of the health unit’s legal obligations which showed that it is not a mandatory program,

that it is the only one of 35 health units across Ontario offering such services and the costs and human resources should be better applied to filling mandated dental services in schools and to low-income residents and other health needs. She also, as requested by the board earlier, consulted the long-term-care homes in the area and found only two of 13 were really interested in actually paying for such a service and in following up any screening recommendations. There actually is a legal onus on such facilities to provide adequate dental screening and care, she noted. Administration director Val Dunham gave a financial update showing a reduction in provincial funding of more than $36,000 which will be taken from the unit’s reserve fund for this year rather than impact on municipal levies.

Christmas light display moved near pier EMC News - Belleville Jane Forrester Park will have Christmas lights this season. The traditional Billy Foster Memorial Display and a legion of other lights will be gracing the Jane Forrester Park located right near Meyers Pier in Belleville this Christmas season. “It’s a pretty exciting time for the city of Belleville. We have been working on this Christmas light display for two or three years now and this is the year it came together,” explained Garnet Thompson, city councillor and chair of the Christmas Light Display Committee. The cobblestone area of the park in the northwest corner will be the new home of the Billy Foster display that previously found its home at Alemite Park. Thompson said the Foster display will also have signage telling the history of the dis-

play. Three large Christmas trees complete with lights will be placed on the hill of the park. In addition, a new light display ordered from Shear Display, which will include 15 pieces, will decorate the majority of the park. That tender has just been issued by the city for the cost of $85,000. In addition each pole around the park will have a picture of a star illuminated with a laser light. A large star will be constructed with lights on the roof of the Harbour building on the pier so passers-by on the Norris Whitney Bridge will also be drawn to the display. The light posts from Dundas Street East to the corner of South Front and Baypark Drive will be adorned with flags emblazoned with “Christmas at the Pier.” The display will go up on November 16 and will be taken down mid January. Since

this year’s Santa Claus Parade is slotted for November 18, the lights will be up in time. The city is currently looking for sponsors for the Christmas light display, whether to donate the entire amount of funds for a particular display or contribute to the whole which will be recognized with a donor plaque or the donor wall. In the past the traditional Christmas display was housed and fenced within the Alemite Park where the public could see the display through the fence. This year that all changes. “We’re trying to create a display that people can walk around and children can get a look,” stated Thompson. For more information or how to sponsor a light display contact Karen Poste, manager economic and strategic initiative, at 613-967-3273 or email at <>.

EMC News - Quinte West A significant decrease in registration in the past two years has caused the Tuckers Corners Day Camp to be cancelled. “We did not run the camp this summer due to a lack of registration,” explained Jaclyn Grimmon, manager of recreation and tourism. After losing programming space to renovations at Tucker Corners, the camp could accommodate only 20 to 25 campers in 2011, with only 10 to 12 a week. Only three or four campers registered in 2012. “A number of other longrunning camps in the area also reported low numbers,” Grimmon said. However, Grimmon noted that the Backyard Bonanza camps were offered for a sixth straight year at four different locations in Trenton in partnership with Hastings County Housing Programs. These were held at Annwood Court and Gould Street in the mornings and Adrian Court and Kent/York afternoons. Fall recreation programs are starting up on September 17.

Lots of laughs at Ladies Night

EMC News - Stirling - After an unforgettable Ladies Night, committee members planning upcoming events for Hockeyville are hoping for a similar response. Committee Chair Cindy Brandt says last weekend’s fund raiser was a huge success, and many attendees concurred following the evening of entertainment at the Lions Hall last Friday night. “For those hypnotized,” Brandt says, “they were definitely the life of the party.”

EMC Entertainment - The Lions Club Music in the Park series wound up on September 9 with a dance in the Tweed Kiwanis Pavilion where guests danced to the music of the Starliters Band. Proceeds from the event go to the Tweed & Area Historical Society.

But, she says, the party is far from over. The Stanley Cup will arrive in Stirling regardless of current NHL contract negotiations and there will be plenty of free food and fun through much of the day. The parade begins at 11:30 a.m. on September 30 and will bring the Stanley Cup to the arena from its starting point at Wells Ford. Once at the arena, the Cup will be on display with opportunities to be photographed with hockey’s

most coveted prize. As well, Brandt says, NHLers will be in town to sign autographs during the day. Festivities run until 3 p.m. Committee members are also preparing for the upcoming Casino Night on September 29 with tickets available next week at Rustic Routes. Balloting for NHL preseason tickets is now complete, following the final day of sign-ups last weekend, and results will be announced in mid-September.

EMC News - Belleville Friends and family members of Belleville Christian School got together to sing hymns, meet staff and celebrate a special donation last week. The Belleville Thrift Store presented school officials with a cheque for $13,376 at a special startof-the-school year celebration on Friday, September 7. The money was raised through the sale of used household items and small furniture at the store. It will help offset tuition prices for families who wish to send children to the private school. Tineke Bouma opened the Belleville Thrift store at 393 Sidney Street in May with the sole purpose of raising funds to donate to Belleville Christian School families. “I would be really sad if someone wanted Christian education for their families but couldn’t afford it,” she said during Friday’s ceremony.

Belleville Christian School is located just off Highway 62, a short drive north of Highway 401. This year it has just under 100 students, from Grades Kindergarten to 8. Most families pay $9,600 to enroll one child in the school, $11,750 for two children or $12,750 for three or more children. William Sikkema, chairman of the school’s board of directors, said the thrift store donation will be used to offer tuition assistance to families who can’t cover the full payment. It will likely help several families attend the school in the future. He said donations such as this one are greatly appreciated because the school does not receive government funding and survives solely on donations and tuition. Yet it has survived for nearly 50 years because of families who believe in God-centred education. Bouma said she felt compelled to launch a fund-raising store be-

cause the school has been in her family for years. Her five grown children are all graduates of the school and now five of her grandchildren attend the school.

“It’s Christcentred and it has Christ-centred morals.” She believes they are better people for having received education at Belleville Christian School. “It’s Christ-centred and it has Christ-centred morals,” she said, adding that students are taught to “really love one another.” She said the families that make up the school community are all very close. “It is a really close community. When our children were here we knew all the other parents. They all share the same values, which is very important.”

The election barely matters Saving time any

EMC Editorial - There was never going to be a big debate on U.S. foreign policy at the Democratic National Convention. It will be whatever Barack Obama says it should be, and besides, the delegates in Charlotte weren’t interested. Gwynne Dyer It’s the economy, stupid, and two months before the election nobody wants to get sidetracked into discussing a peripheral issue like American foreign policy. The only people who really care about that at the moment are foreigners and the U.S. military— and even they are not following the election with bated breath, because few of them believe a change of president could fundamentally change the way the U.S. relates to the rest of the world. Although the Republicans do their best to paint Obama as a wild-eyed radical who is dismantling America’s defences, he has actually been painfully orthodox in his foreign policy. He loves Israel to bits, he did not shut down the Afghan war (or Guantanamo), he uses drones to kill U.S. enemies (and sometimes, anybody else who is nearby), and he tamely signs off on a $700-billion defence budget. How can Mitt Romney top that? He could say he loves Israel even more. In fact, he does say that, promising to recognise Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. But that is purely gesture politics, since almost no other countries do, and in practice Obama gives Israel almost everything it wants already. He could pledge to spend even more on “defence” than Obama, but the United States is already pouring 4.7 per cent of its Gross Domestic Product down that rathole. Obama has planned cuts over the next several years that would bring it down to about four per cent—and Romney has promised not to let it fall below four per cent. Not a huge difference there. The Republican candidate faces a constraint none of his recent predecessors had: a party that really cares about the deficit. In the past three decades, it has been Republican presidents who ran up the bills—Ronald Reagan never balanced a budget, and the Bush-Cheney team declared that “deficits don’t matter”—while the subsequent Dem-

ocratic administrations tried to curb out-ofcontrol spending. Romney doesn’t have that option: the Tea Party wing of his party actually means what it says about both taxes and deficits. So what’s left for him? Well, he could promise to kill even more of America’s enemies than Obama, but he can’t get around the fact that it’s Obama who nailed Osama bin Laden, and Obama who is playing fast and loose with international law by using drones to carry out remote-control assassinations of hostile foreigners. So Romney says very little about foreign policy because there is little he can say. The closest he has come to specific policy changes was an “action plan” he laid out during the Republican primaries last year, to be accomplished within 100 days of taking office. It was an entirely credible promise, because none of it really involves a policy change at all. He promised to “re-assure traditional allies that America will fulfill its global commitments.” A couple of phone calls, and that’s done. He declared he would move more military forces to the Gulf “to send a message to Iran,” but he didn’t threaten to attack Iran, or endorse an Israeli attack on Iran. And he can always move them back again if he gets bored. He said he would appoint a Middle East czar to oversee U.S. support for the evolving Arab transitions. That’s one more government job, but Romney has even less idea than Obama about where he wants those transitions to end up. Besides, the United States has almost no leverage on this issue. He will review the Obama administration’s planned withdrawal from Afghanistan. Not necessarily change it; just review it. He will also review Obama’s global missile defence strategy. He might like to change that—Republicans have loved the concept ever since Ronald Reagan’s “Star Wars” dreams—but he hasn’t got the kind of money he would need for a more ambitious policy.It’s not surprising that the rest of the world doesn’t care much about the U.S. election. Most foreigners, on both the right and the left, are more comfortable with Obama than Romney, but U.S. foreign policy will stay the same whoever wins. They might not like all of it, but they’re used to it.

Letter to the editor

The value of learning in a community

Dear Editor, Response to “One Size does not fit all” I appreciate the idea that in education one size doesn’t fit all. Many schools across North America are implementing innovation and learning around the individual needs of the student, recognizing that each student learns differently: schools like Bishop Strachan Girls School in Toronto, Kings Christian Collegiate in Oakville and High Tech High in San Diego. Others are embracing technology in ways that provide greater flexibility, creativity and collaboration in the learning process, such as project based learning. In addition, research tells us that learning and building relationships go hand in hand for effective learning to happen for teens (and probably for the rest of us as well). Individualized learning through correspondence courses and virtual learning can supplement and support a teen’s education, but cannot replace the value of learning in community. From what I have observed, relationships of love and respect amongst students and teachers are essential to a rich and life giving education. There is still an important place for schools in a community. The phrase “It takes a village to raise a child” is attributed to an old African proverb. Although its exact origin is unknown, it is a phrase that caught my attention many years ago, and has stayed with me through my years as teacher and principal. The school where I work is founded on the conviction that God calls home, church and school to be the village where we work together to raise a child. A school can be a place where teachers walk alongside students, providing wonderful learning and mentoring opportunities. Both of our children (now in their 30s) benefitted greatly from significant role models who loved them and helped them grow in their thinking and wrestling with the hard questions

of life and faith. Chap Clark, professor of youth, family and culture at Fuller Theological seminary, says teens need five significant adults in their lives other than their parents. Institutions such as schools and churches can provide these significant adults in their lives. Children swim first in the culture of their family, learning its beliefs, biases and judgments, both good and bad. There is no question that the family culture has the most significant role in their early years in establishing that initial foundation. However, as they grow, community becomes more and more significant. As parents our thinking is limited to one particular way of seeing and interpreting the world. In high school, our children need to test and challenge the thinking of mom and dad, and wrestle with the tough questions of life to take from what they have been taught and make it their own. The school that supports the values of home can be such a place. I realize that any culture can be toxic, whether school, church or home. Culture is never stagnant, but is always changing. It needs constant attention. Just as each family has a unique culture, so does a school. Every school needs to work toward providing a healthy and compassionate culture of learning and growing, for both the head and heart. We are blessed to live in a country where choice in education is still available to parents. Each parent is free to decide whether to home school, to find a private school, or a public school. Although funding continues to be fraught with injustice in this province, I am grateful for the opportunity to provide a variety of ways to educate and raise a child. May we continue to work to protect each other’s convictions about educating our children. Johan P. B. Cooke, Principal, Quinte Christian High School

way we can By Terry Bush

EMC Editorial - Everyone’s in a hurry to get nowhere fast it seems. It’s only Monday evening and so far this week three different morons in jacked up trucks have passed me with oncoming vehicles plainly in sight forcing cars to scramble to the shoulder to avoid head-on collisions. What on earth could be so important as to endanger the lives of the people in five different vehicles? Coronation Street? Steak on the barbie? The promise of a little nudge, nudge, wink, wink? Despite the fact that we have all these electronic gadgets to make our lives easier, we seem to have less time than ever. Luckily, our friends in the fast food industry are eager to lend us a hand. Decades ago, when our family used to make a monthly pilgrimage to Toronto to visit the other side of the family, four young boys knew that if they played their cards right and didn’t bite anyone’s ear off on the way home, there was a very good chance a bucket of Kentucky Fried Chicken might find its way into the car when we within spitting distance of the homestead. We couldn’t sample the greasy goodness until we were in our assigned places at the dinner table but we probably inhaled at least a couple of ounces of those delectable chicken pieces in the time it took to drive from Cobourg to Stirling. That couldn’t happen today because they don’t really make Kentucky Fried Chicken anymore. Now we have something called KFC. The Colonel must be rolling in his 11 different herbs and spices. Nice of them to save us the time of having to read three whole words on their sign. Same deal with another staple of the fast food industry, Dairy Queen. That name at least implies that dairy products are involved in some tasty way. I don’t know what DQ means to the average Joe or Josephine but to anyone involved with sports, a DQ isn’t something you want to hear. Maybe our Olympic 100-metre relay team has a few words to say on that subject. Just imagine what it’s like for new Canadians to try to figure it all out. It’s Friday night, big date looming for our Latvian friend; the girl of his dreams finally figured out what he’d been asking her since they first met and said yes. He greets her with a kiss on the cheek and whispers his plans for the evening. “We start with a liddle KFC and den go for some DQ and then after a romantic stroll by the lake we finish up with STD. What you think about dat, baby? Baby? Baby, come back. What did I say? You doan want some terrific dancing? Some BK at midnight den? How bout some MW. Doan you like da Miracle Whip. Canada love dat right?” We drive the 401 to Trawna and take the DVP downtown. The QEW takes you to St. Kitt’s and then with all the time you have left over from not saying the full names of every highway you’ve just driven, there might even be enough time to drive the rest of the way to NF. Oops, I don’t think anyone has shortened down the name Niagara Falls yet. Well, maybe the Americans have because their falls are pretty tiny compared to ours. Maybe that’s why Yanks are so loud. They have little falls syndrome. But I digress once again. I’m leaning toward shortening things up myself. If the fast foodies and Ministry of Transportation can do it, why can’t I? From know on, when I answer the phone at the office, I’ll no longer say, “Hello Terry speaking,” which is pretty short and sweet to start with. I think I’ll go with, “Dag, TB,” to pay homage to my Dutch wife. That line works both coming and going. Then again maybe TB isn’t the best set of initials to use though it’s a little less ominous now than when I was a kid. Tuberculosis was still a bit of a big deal back then and some kids thought calling me TB was some kind of childish insult. I could go the full Monty and include the middle initial as making me TAB for short but then again, using the name of a diet soft drink that nobody drinks anymore isn’t really all that sexy. Tab Hunter kind of spoiled that name anyway. Pull tab might be something I could have a good time with. Maybe I could just shorten down Mister Terry Bush to three little letters that everyone wants. I want my, I want my, I want my MTB. Good song, good initials. I think I’ll go with that one. Now what to do with the 15.6 seconds I’ll save by never using my real name again. Maybe drop by A&W. They had it right in the first place. Belleville EMC - Thursday, September 13, 2012

Time to pass the Skin Cancer Prevention Act

Dear Editor, Cancer is an unrelenting disease, but Canadian Cancer Society volunteers and staff are tireless in leading the fight against cancer. One of the easy ways progress can be made is through public policies that can prevent future cancer cases and help people who are living with the disease.

After the summer break, the provincial legislature resumed sitting at Queen’s Park on August 27. The Canadian Cancer Society is renewing its calls for the government of Ontario to support Bill 74, the Skin Cancer Prevention Act, which aims to restrict youth under 18 year of age from using indoor tanning equipment.

Ontario government not to pass Bill 74. In other parts of Canada, the governments of Quebec, Nova Scotia and British Columbia are all taking proactive steps to address this pressing issue by introducing legislation to restrict youth from indoor tanning salons. In August, the Town of Oakville became the first municipality to enact such legislation in Ontario. The indoor tanning industry continues to misrepresent its product to the public. No tan is a safe tan. Melanoma skin cancer is one of the most common forms of skin cancer in young Ontarians ages 15 to 29, and is one of the most preventable. Indoor tanning equipment can emit ultraviolet radiation at levels that are five times stronger than the mid-day summer sun. A tan from natural or artificial sources provides very limited protection from sun-

light or burning—it’s only equivalent to about SPF two or three. We know voluntary guidelines do not work. The indoor tanning industry has proven incapable of regulating itself. Investigative reports by media and audits conducted by Society and Public Health, show that those in the indoor tanning industry are not consistently following Health Canada’s voluntary safety guidelines. We also know parental consent does not work as many parents are introducing their kids to indoor tanning and paying for their tanning sessions. Regulating the indoor tanning industry will save lives and help reverse the rising cost of skin cancer on our already exhausted healthcare system. The Canadian Partnership Against Cancer estimates the total economic burden of skin

cancer in the country will rise to $922 million annually by 2032. We already have age-specific laws related to smoking, drinking, gambling and bike helmets. Restricting those under 18 from indoor tanning would be just another law that protects the health of a vulnerable population and raises awareness about the dangers of indoor tanning. We need to take action now. I encourage local residents to join the fight against skin cancer and send a letter to MPP Todd Smith by visiting <> or join the conversation on Twitter via #tanbedban. Yours in cancer prevention, Karen White Unit President Hastings Prince Edward & Brighton Unit Canadian Cancer Society

Municipality takes a back seat to council infighting Dear Editor, It appears the old animosities have returned with a vengeance to Brighton Council chambers. Based on the August 13 and September 4 meetings, agenda items that could have been of benefit to Brighton residents are once again being discarded owing to councillor infighting and competing agendas. For example, at the August meeting a motion was put forward to test the water at Gosport where the municipality ostensibly installed a beach sign at some time in the past. The sign was probably put in prior to the polishing pond being constructed and advised residents and visitors of a local swimming area. The residents of Gosport and South Brighton deserve to know if this water is still safe. It was

a paltry amount of money to have the water tested for a three-month period but the motion was defeated with those members voting in the negative claiming potential liability issues as an excuse for not supporting the motion. If I was a resident of Gosport or South Brighton, I would be very upset at the intransigence shown by my elected representatives. In contrast, provincial beaches are tested regularly and if contamination is found a sign is posted advising all not to swim. Liability does not appear to factor into provincial standard operating procedures relating to beaches. The September 4 meeting of Brighton Council started out on what appeared to be a productive course. Sadly, the meeting degenerated quickly when item 10, (Notice

of Motions and Motions) was brought forward. If my memory serves me correctly, the mayor’s motion centred on whether or not a Municipal Services Review (promised prior to his election as mayor) be undertaken. Once debate had started, I had visions of the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party in Lewis Carroll’s, “Alice in Wonderland” complete with raucous guests. Verbal tomatoes and rotten fruit were crossing the floor in great profusion. All councillors professed to support the operation of the municipality in the most cost effective manner but only three were willing to put their money where their mouths were. Shame. Once again a motion that could have benefitted all Brighton taxpayers was defeated with excuses as tenuous as, illegal under the Municipal Act, in-

sufficient funds, not in this FY budget and believe it or not, one member suggested that the motion originator was setting a trap to make him look bad for not supporting the motion. In addition, the detractors dredged up arcane procedural minutia at every opportunity causing most attendees’ eyes to glaze over from acute boredom and almost four hours of verbal flogging. In the gallery was a contingent of municipal employees who applauded each decision they deemed favourable to them. I can only assume they considered this review to be a threat. It is quite apparent that council/staff relations are at an all time low. I eagerly await the next election. I am still shaking my head in disbelief. Roger McMurray, Brighton

Wyley’s ideas on more MPs



In 2009, the world’s foremost authority in identifying the causes of cancer, the International Agency for Research on Cancer classified ultraviolet radiation (UVR) emitting devices, including tanning beds, as a known carcinogen proven to cause cancer. The skin damage caused by UVR is cumulative over a person’s life, meaning the earlier you start tanning, the greater your risk of developing skin cancer later in life. This is why the society is so concerned about the issue of youth using indoor tanning equipment. In July, an expert review of current research published in the British Medical Journal showed that people who first started using indoor tanning equipment before the age of 35 have an 87 per cent increased risk of melanoma skin cancer. There is no excuse for the

Dear Editor, Have you heard? The bureaucracy wants more MPs! We aren’t being properly represented by the flock of glad-handers we have, and our ever-expanding population would apparently merit another dozen and a half well-wishers. If we had any idea how much, really how much largesse is required to fund the offices and unbelievable pensions of these folks and their hangers-on, I believe that

any sober business analysis of accomplishment v/s reward would have 90 per cent of them unemployed. Roll back your pensions to be consistent with what is the present reality in the workplace: defined benefit pensions are unaffordable, severely underfunded, and thus one more insult to tomorrow’s taxpayers. (Or let’s, for instance, set the OAS qualifying age back yet another few years so that we MPs can continue


to get ours.) You purport to represent us, but are rapacious scoundrels when setting your own remuneration. Don’t give me Christmas cards and parties. I don’t need your recognition of my ability to stay married or stay alive. Give me some legislation, vote on something meaningful. Support some of those worthwhile private members’ bills. Stop being so partisan and get something done while we all have a pulse!

So if you want more members, (until I figure out how to reduce your budget), take the existing “pot” of funding allocated to MPs and divide it by the NEW forecast number of MPs. Let’s see how badly you wish to enlarge the comfy party if YOU have to subsidize it—instead of ME. Yours truly, Wyley Canuck, aka Ken Leavens, Stirling

EMC News - Belleville With a timeline smack dab between Hallowe’en and Christmas, what theme could be more perfect than Tim Burton’s Nightmare Before Christmas for this year’s Festival of Trees. The theme was unveiled at Capers last week, where co-chair of the event Paula Finkle explained that the historic Memorial Arena would be transformed into Christmas Town complete with the cast of characters from the hit animated film. For the first time in 18 years the gala will kick off the festivities from November 17 to 29. “This being the 45th Anniversary of the Quinte Arts Council we want to showcase the great talent that is in the Quinte Area and felt there was no better way to show our support as a community than by coming together with this evening full of surprises,” said Finkle. She noted the organizing committee is hoping to draw over 350 attendees to the gala. Finkle said the theme of Burton’s tale will be adhered to very closely. She said the event doesn’t tread on any copyright toes either as the event is a celebration of the artist. “As long as we are celebrating the work and as long as we don’t alter any of his version then we are fully acceptable,” said Finkle. Beginning at 5:30 p.m. and lasting until all the guests turn into pumpkins, the evening will also feature a four-course gourmet

Security cameras added to system downtown

By Kate Everson

EMC News - Trenton The city added its 25th security camera recently, with one set up on Murphy Street in Trenton ward. “We are growing our own system,” said IT manager Ed Woods. “We have the second largest in the province, second to Toronto which installed 80 for the G8 conference.” Jim Alyea said OPP de-

tachment commander Mike Reynolds proposes having the cameras around the high schools. Woods noted the city recently relocated a camera to Elgin Street further to the west at the intersection of Elgin and King Street and now it monitors the Life Lab/MDS building. “The new camera for the Afghanistan Repatriation Memorial in Bain Park is

about 80 per cent complete. The city is waiting the light standard which is on back order.” Once this 26th camera is installed the city will have reached its threshold, Woods advised the Corporate and Financial Services committee. It will need to upgrade its network if the city wants to continue the program. The city will be meeting with the vendor, Southeastern to discuss options. “There may be sufficient

funds to cover this cost in 2012 from the annual $40,000 police reserve fund which is used for the CCTV program,” he said. “Or it can be a capital project for 2013.” Once the network upgrade is addressed, the city would be able to continue to add three to four additional cameras per year. The upgrade has the potential for the city to double its program before any further upgrades are necessary.

EMC News - Belleville Council Monday got a brief outline of the now-completed “10-year cultural plan for Hastings County and Quinte Region.” Greg Baeker, director of cultural development for the consultant firm of Miller, Dickinson, Blais Inc., summed up by saying it was not so much a matter of building any new agency or structure as to connect existing organizations and facilities into a coherent and effective cultural network. The study was originally commissioned by Hastings County Council in an attempt to recognize and enhance cultural tourism in the area, but it drew financial support from the cities of Belleville and Quinte West, Prince Edward County and the province. Baeker said it was the “first regional cultural plan” in Ontario. He noted expansion of jobs in Ontario’s creative industries has almost made up for the heavy losses in industrial jobs in recent years and is expected to grow by 40 per cent over the next ten years. Included in the study and detailed were cultural activities, organizations and facilities including heritage and architecture, art and artisans and their organizations, performance facilities and their status, music, theatre, writing and more. He said the report contains 22 specific recommen-

Take Back the Night focuses on awareness By Michael J Brethour

EMC News - Belleville To walk unafraid into the night is a right everyone should have. Sadly though, that is still not the case. For

women more so than men, it is that constant fear that fuels the annual Take Back The Night event. Elise Hineman, an organizer behind the event and a public educator and

counsellor with the Sexual Assault Centre, said the purpose of the evening since 1975 has been about gathering and acknowledging the fear that women experience in the night but more important, she noted, was the awareness the event brings to violence against women. The event held at West Zwicks Park in Belleville was organized by four groups: the Sexual Assault Centre for Quinte and District, Three Oaks, Military Family Resource Centre and the Domestic Violence Sexual Assault Response program with

Quinte Health Care. “Women still feel very unsafe when they are out at night … it is something men do not have to think about as much,” she said. This year marked the first that the event did not begin with a walk through the city followed by the celebration in Market Square, instead just gathering as a group at West Zwicks Park to hear greeting messages from the hosting organizations and powerful poetry from eight women who have survived sexual assault and or violence. “This event is for the

community at large. It is important that the entire community takes part in this social action event,” said Hineman. The evening ran for roughly two hours, with those in attendance being treated to some powerful poetry from eight women, who shared their experiences with abuse and assault through the art. In addition music from the band the Trudelles helped wrap up the night in a high energy musical note as the some 509 individuals in attendance had some cake to mark the occasion.

Hineman underlined some heavy statistics, noting that one of every two women will experience a sexual assault or violence aimed at them within their lifetime. She added that despite media reports, there does not appear to be a heavy increase in Belleville of sexual assaults compared to other municipalities. “We are about on par with other areas according to the statistics that are given to our organization; perhaps the other organizations here may or may not be different,” she said.

Way says Foley suspension too soft EMC News - Stirling Local resident Joseph Way thinks Stirling-Rawdon Police Chief Brian Foley should face criminal prosecution and he is asking the Police Services Board to investigate. In a delegation before the board this week, Way was critical of the Ontario Civilian Police Commission (OCPC) hearing, addressing Foley’s provision of a canister of pepper spray to a private citizen, as well as the outcome. The OCPC directed the local PSB to hand down a three-day suspension following the disciplinary hearing and an admis-

sion by the chief to a charge of discreditable conduct. And while that was far short of steps that should have been taken, Way said, he was also curious when and whether the chief’s suspension had been served. Board Member Rodney Cooney, who chaired the meeting, indicated that was a matter for caucus that, in all likelihood would be part of that evening’s session. But Way says it’s not enough, suggesting a charge of Trafficking in a Prohibited Weapon which carries a minimum sentence of three years in prison. Way was also critical of OCPC lawyers who, he

says, failed to provide any evidence against Foley but instead merely listened to submissions made by friends of the chief. When asked whether or not the board or any of its members had submitted a letter in defence of the police chief, Cooney said the board and secretary had no recollection of one. During his delegation, Way also said there was much that did not come out at the disciplinary hearing in Toronto including the identity of Mr. Z and Mrs. K. In naming them, Way sug-

gested there was far more to the incident than OCPC officials were made aware. In fact, he says, Mr. Z was unaware of any allegations prior to the hearing. Way then asked the board to investigate the matter further before thanking them for the opportunity to speak. Board members were in full agreement with a revamping of current communications between the department and board, presenting a package template for consideration. PSB members were provided with cop-

ies of a regular police report from another department showing breakdowns and numbers that, Cooney says, have relevance here but are not always reported. In particular, Cooney says, overtime hours, holidays and ongoing and scheduled activities such as school and foot patrols should all be included in regular communications between the police chief and the board. Foley agreed the information requested could be easily included on a regular basis. Wilfred Shier was also

strongly in favour of more detailed reports to the board, adding it is important for the chief to know what his officers are doing and that they are actually getting out of their cars during school patrols. Shier also suggested a mandated 20 per month of foot patrols, to which Foley also agreed. And while looking at costs of training, Shier also made a motion to cancel all training outside the area including courses already scheduled and paid for. There was no seconder for the motion.

Cooney insistent on forum for input By Richard Turtle

EMC News - Stirling - Despite feeling some heat to eliminate it, Stirling-Rawdon Police Services Board (PSB) member Rodney Cooney wants to continue the practice of a question and answer session at the end of public meetings. “I really believe in question period,” Cooney said to a packed council chamber at Monday’s regular PSB meeting, and  despite being “under pressure to get rid of it,” he says, “my decision is it should stay.” Formal delegations will still require notice, but questions and comments from the public will be encouraged. “Constructive criticism and constructive questions are all good,” Cooney said. But speakers will be limited, both in time and in the nature of their comments. Personnel issues are off limits, he says, and approximately 15 minutes will be set aside at the end of each public meeting inviting comments from the floor. Differing opinions, he adds, are always welcome, “but there has to be a question there.” And those questions will not necessarily be answered at

the time but there will be a board response, he says. “After 21 months on, well, off and on the board,” Cooney says, “I have more questions now than when I started here.” Monday evening several residents took the opportunity to speak, making comments and asking questions about hiring practices and procedures, police forces’ cross-jurisdictional exchange of information during special investigations and policemedia relations. The board was also asked, and the question remained unanswered, how many of the ten members of the local police service have postsecondary educations. Cooney also spoke of his own frustrations with the process and the Ontario Civilian Police Commission (OCPC) as well as the exact intention of rules outlined in the Police Services Act. In cases where there is room for interpretation, Cooney says, he has been advised to seek a legal opinion, and for small municipalities that can amount to significant costs “and that comes back to the ratepayers.”

Free concert sheds light on area talent By Richard Turtle

park. Beals organized the free concert with the help of local sponsors to prove a simple point: Centre Hastings Rocks. And while a banner above the stage proclaimed just that, it was the bands that proved it. Playing primarily original material, performers New Age Soldier, My Favourite Tragedy and headliner Gentlemen Husbands impressed the crowds with a shining example of eastern Ontario talent. Beals’ band, which also includes his drummer Brad Thompson and bassist Kris Tischbein, opened the show and, as Beals predicted, set the stage for a solid evening of entertainment.


EMC Entertainment - Madoc - A dedicated group of music fans was treated to a highly polished performance by a trio of touring bands last weekend and while rain threatened throughout the Friday night concert, organizer Aaron Beals says for a firsttime event he was pleased with the response. And very pleased the weather held. About 100 people watched the show from the grass in front of the Arts Centre’s outdoor stage with about as many more listening while otherwise occupied at various points throughout the

My Favourite Tragedy, the 2010 Big Money Shot competition winners, had the audience cheering both their musicianship and their versatility. True storytellers, with some seriously smart lyrics laid down by frontman North Easton, this Ottawabased trio is a treat to watch. And while they play on amplified acoustic instruments, these guys are electric. Easton spent a moment hammering out a rhythm on John Demarais’ standup bass, noting afterward the instrument has suffered some trauma as a result, but that, along with Easton’s flailing dreadlocks were all part of the high energy show. But the band has their subtleties too, making their reflections on unspeakable subjects like suicide very easy to listen to. Their 2011 CD, A World of Quiet Talk, was well worth the $20 price tag to many concertgoers as the lineup started to form immediately after their set ended. For the philosophically minded, the packaging alone, a 48page book full of poetry/lyrics, glossy colour photographs and personal ruminations, is worth that. Rounding out the show, and offering a mix of original and cover tunes, Gentlemen Husbands also lived up to Beals’ pre-show hype. Described by organizers as a band not to be missed, Gentlemen Husbands did not disappoint. The Cobourg-based four-piece band

includes lead vocalist/guitarist Rick Ballard, lead guitar Ryan Hutchison, bassist Jed

Atkinson and drummer Dan Farrell. So if Centre Hastings Rocks

again, ignore the weather and go anyway. You’ll be glad you did.

New Age Soldier’s Aaron Beals organized a Friday night concert in Madoc featuring three highly entertaining eastern Ontario bands. Beals is pictured performing with bassist Kris Tischbein and drummer Brad Thompson.

Crisscrossing between northern New Mexico and southern Colorado by steam train By John M. Smith

EMC Lifestyles - If you have a passion for old trains and train travel, then I’d

beginning in Antonito, Colorado, for the flatter, more open section of the excursion will soon be replaced

midpoint. The New Mexico Express from Chama and the Colorado Limited from Antonito actually meet up

by striking rock formations, steep climbs, cliff-hanging curves, broad valleys, and deep gorges, and it crests at the 10,015-foot Cumbres Pass, the highest in the nation that’s used by scheduled passenger trains. My ride did actually begin in Antonito, and I had the good fortune to do the

at Osier, where they stop at midday to exchange greetings, engines, and some passengers. After a homecooked meal for all passengers at Osier, the appropriate train is boarded, and the ride continues. After my departure from Antonito, Colorado, I soon saw Hangman’s Trestle,

take on about 3,500 gallons of water. We then continued, through the 342-footlong Mud Tunnel, before again crossing the state border and encountering Colorado’s Phantom Curve, so named for the ghostly shapes and shadows seen here at night. Next was another crisscrossing of the border to New Mexico’s 360-foot-long Rock Tunnel, bored through solid rock, and its Garfield Monument, dedicated to the assassinated president, before our arrival at Osier, Colorado, for lunch. After our hour-long lunch break, we continued on our way and soon crossed the Cascade Trestle, the highest

the second highest bridge on the line, the Lobato Trestle, 100 feet above Wolf Creek. As we crossed this bridge, the whistle blew, and the steam sprayed out, making for a nice photo op. This was made even better when a rainbow suddenly appeared over the trestle! As we rode on the twisting, curving rails, I noticed we were being followed by a water tank, for it was a safety measure; it would put out any cinders or sparks from the train. I also noticed that there were two special cars attached to our train: a Parlour Car at the rear for fine dining and more luxurious seating, and an Open Car where riders could enjoy

drunk, from swaying car to swaying car, to reach that Open Car. This proved to be the very best place from which to take photos, for there were no windows to worry about and there was a clear view of the entire area. I looked for mule deer, antelope, and elk from this viewpoint and I had a 200-yearold Douglas fir, a bat cave, and ancient pictographs pointed out to me. When we finally reached our destination of Chama, New Mexico, I took a walking tour of the rail yard, for it’s now a living, working museum that will fascinate history buffs. I checked out some of the historic cars, equipment, and engines

The train had an open car, too.

bridge (137 feet above Cascade Creek) on the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad. We then encountered Tanglefoot Curve before arriving at Cumbres, the highest point on the route. As we approached the Cumbres station, I noticed a dog sitting on a four-wheeler by the track with its owner, and the dog was barking and apparently “welcoming” us. I was told that the dog was named Bandit and that he was the honorary “mayor” of Cumbres! He was there to greet the daily train. After our brief stop with the mayor in Cumbres, Colorado, we soon reached Windy Point, where the rails are laid out on a rock shelf, carved out of the face of a cliff. We then crossed the border again into New Mexico, for the last time, and here we encountered

being in the fresh air—and smelling (and perhaps even feeling) the steam and coal. If requested in advance, special cars with lifts for people with disabilities can also be added. As the historic train wound its way along the line, I stumbled/wobbled along, somewhat like a

on display. I also discovered this particular train ride I’d just completed had been featured in the opening scenes of a movie, “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade”; there’s now an Indiana Jones Home B&B located at the other end of the ride in Antonito, Colorado.

Porchfest 2012 to descend on East Hill

By Michael J Brethour

EMC Entertainment Belleville - What do musicians and porches have in common? Come September 22, Belleville residents will be able to easily answer that question as the annual Porchfest returns to the friendly city’s east end.

After three successful years, Porchfest Belleville is firmly established as an annual event in the East Hill neighbourhood attracting hundreds of audience members from all over the region. This year, Porchfest Belleville was recognized as one of the foundational Porch Festivals in North

America, in an article in Making Music Magazine, along with other events of its kind in the USA. The presence of the festival in the city is the product of co-organizers Lucinda Pritchard and Ken Hudson’s trip to Ithaca, New York, over four years ago when they witnessed a porch fes-

tival there, which immediately got the wheels working overtime with them thinking, “We could do this in Belleville.” So upon returning to the east end Belleville neighbourhood they had moved into a short time before, they put together the inaugural Porchfest. “It’s a nice neighbourhood with plenty of old classic buildings so it’s a great chance to see them as well while touring the neighbourhood; that’s why we originally thought that Porchfest would work so well here,” she said. It turns out the couple was right; now in its fourth year the simple brilliance of the festival concept has it so there is little to no overhead to the event not to mention the existence of the event relies on community involvement. Talk about community building. Pritchard said the rough geographical area is Dundas Street to Pine Street and

John Street to McDonald Avenue. She said there are a few south of Pine Street and just outside the area, but she said the general vicinity will remain the same. “That’s how we want to keep it as a walking festival or people can ride a bike,” she said. The event usually sports just over a score of “porches” musicians will perform from, including the tennis courts on Queen Street. “We are always looking for more porches. We have lots of bands, right now we have at least three bands in need of a porch,” she said. The criteria for being a “host porch” is having a porch or performing area with a tarp in lieu of a covered porch in case of rain and just an electrical unit available for the band. “It’s helpful for people to be open minded … we have all kinds of musicians, young kids, punk rock, alternative rock you name it. But we encourage people to make

the venue their own with decorations, snacks and refreshments if they choose. “It just adds to the neighbourhood spirit of the event,” she said. Festivities begin at 12:45 p.m. at Glanmore National Historic Site, 257 Bridge Street East, featuring Bruce Bedell, Belleville’s Town Crier, and a spirited “play in” by Andy Forgie. Music at all venues starts at 1 p.m. and continues until 4 p.m. Local musicians interested in showcasing their talents in this community event, are encouraged to sign up early on the Porchfest Belleville web site <porchfest. ca>. Those interested in claiming to have “been there, done that, got the T-shirt” can order their Porchfest 2012 shirts from the same web site as well. Participation is open to anyone and performers from all genres and age groups are welcome. The deadline for signing up is Tuesday, September 18.

Rain pounds down as Drum Fest starts

By Richard Turtle

EMC News - Madoc Before the fourth annual Drum Nation Festival began in earnest, it was the rain that pounded down, shrinking crowds to a fraction of those seen previous years. But as the skies cleared and a scaled down program began at O’Hara Mill Homestead last Sunday afternoon, organizers were pleased with the few hundred visitors who arrived to take part despite the inclement weather. “We had about 1,500 last year,” says Terry Richardson who, along with wife Deborah, is behind much of the organization and planning for the yearly event. “It’s a lot less this time around, but we’re happy with the re-

sults,” he says. Owners and operators of The Wild Blue Yonder Cabin, the Richardsons offer drumming workshops to help fund the celebration of music and dance at O’Hara Mill, but also rely on the support of a long list of sponsors. And while hopes were high the event would put organizers in a strong financial position leading up to the next year’s fifth annual, Richardson says he’s content to wait, hopeful that goal will be realized in 2013. The drum, explains Richardson, is an ancient instrument of communication that can be traced back to numerous cultures where it had and still has religious, social and celebratory uses. And the sound of the drum is often

accompanied by dance. The multicultural Drum Nation Festival, he says, is in large part a celebration of the cross-cultural communication, whether by individuals or groups, made possible by a simple instrument usually involving the stretching of a skin over frame. Hit with hands or sticks, even a single drum can emit numerous different sounds. “It creates a connection with each other without words,” he says of the drumming demonstrations and sometimes impromptu drumming circles that were staged throughout the day in what Richardson calls “the ultimate venue” at O’Hara Mill. And whether participant or spectator, he notes, there is a sense of community created through the sound of many drums

that has the capacity to both physically and mentally draw people together. It is a celebration of our similarities and our differences, he says. Nestled in the woods and away from the sounds of traffic, he says the O’Hara Mill Homestead atmosphere is highly conducive to the rhythm of the drum with the ambient sounds of nearby water and wildlife accentuating the unamplified resonance of the instrument itself. “It’s just perfect,” he says of the setting. Several performers, including internationally recognized Tyendinaga musician and artist David Maracle, took the stage and encouraged visitors to gather closer to share the experience of the music and songs of reverence and cel-

ebration. As well, there were wellness vendors and artists, including sculptors and painters, with much of their work displayed under temporary shelters set up on the grounds. The weather did force the cancellation of

visits by some performers travelling from outside the area, including Japanese and South American drumming groups, but there was plenty of ongoing entertainment on the schedule as well as the curiosities of the Homestead itself.

Weather plays rough at Water Buffalo fest

Tracey Ray had her hands full during the Food Festival in Stirling last weekend, offering shaved buffalo roast with smoked cheddar from the Stirling Creamery booth.

At the Water Buffalo Food Festival in Stirling, Mikayla Hubble and Ashley Vader were at the Youth Centre tent offering a Caprese Salad of mozzarella di bufala, tomato and basil, with the herbs provided by Stratton’s Farm.

EMC Events - Stirling - It got off to a rocky start, but when the wind and rain let up Saturday at noon the Stirling-Rawdon Water Buffalo Food Festival filled Mill Street with foodies and the smell of gourmet cooking. Economic Development Officer Elisha Maguire says crowds were in the hundreds and despite a trio of early disasters the annual food festival was again wellreceived by vendors and visitors alike. “We’re estimating numbers at between five and six hundred in the afternoon,” says Maguire noting the forecast had a direct impact and attendance was well down from previous years. “But we’re happy with the way it went considering the weather,” she says. Winds and rain were responsible for knocking out three vendors from the Italian food festival, including West Wings, Fatty Bo Batty’s and Bio Essential Botanicals, who suffered devastating equipment and structure failures. All three were forced to withdraw despite having an abundance of fresh food and drink for the hundreds of paying visitors. Organizer Mary Louise Belanger says the early mishaps were extremely unfortunate, voicing her sympathies for the affected participants, but as the day progressed, she says, the news was nothing but good. Maguire says the weather played havoc on several weekend functions throughout the county causing some cancellations and much smaller than anticipated crowds. In the case of the Water Buffalo Food Festival, she says, future events will have a secondary plan to protect vendors in the event of poor weather and reduce the chance of damage, noting several options are currently under consideration. Ontario Water Buffalo

Company owners Martin Littkemann and Lori Smith were busily greeting guests as well as tending to the animals penned in the parking lot across the covered bridge while their booth offered fresh cheeses and meats from their farm north of the village. Participating vendors also included Capers, Harvest Hastings, Pasta Tavola, Pomodoro Trattoria, Queen of the Kitchen, Stirling Creamery and The Scoop. Visitors were provided with ten taste tickets as well as a ballot to

choose a favourite vendor. Results had not been tallied early this week but, Maguire says, will be announced in the coming days. Dishes ranged from appetizers through main courses to desserts with additional taste tickets available during the festival for one dollar each. Representatives from the Hastings County Beer Festival were also on hand, promoting some of the craft beers and wines that will be available at the upcoming event beginning October 13 at Farmtown Park.

Stirling guitarist Travis Whiteman was one of several performers at last weekend’s Stirling-Rawdon Water Buffalo Food Festival. The event drew hundreds of food lovers to Mill Street for a variety of exotic foods made with local ingredients.

Lions make contribution those, 1,400 live in Ontario and 62 live in the Frontenac Zone that takes in three ski resorts including the Batawa hill. “We’re actually recruiting at the moment,” says Larcombe, adding training sessions start in about a week. Anyone with experience skiing or snowboarding and with an interest in first aid is encouraged to contact the CSPS, he says. “It’s perfect for students in college,” Larcombe adds, noting that time commitments will include a 60-hour training course and 100 hours or more of patrolling the slopes. The CSPS also provides first aid services at events such as the Legacy Run.

By Richard Turtle

Kyte says the 2013 run, scheduled for June 9, is already taking shape with plans for both a five- and ten-kilometre route as well as the possibility of adding a half-marathon to the mix. Organizers are also looking to make adjustments in the future, including better timing systems for competitors, Kyte says. The Lions will also be holding a very public fund raiser next weekend (September 22) when they will set up a toll booth at Stirling’s main intersection from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Motorists travelling through the village will be asked to make voluntary contributions at the lights.


EMC News - Stirling - After providing first aid support for the Stirling and District Lions Club first Legacy Run earlier this summer, the Canadian Ski Patrol System (CSPS) became a recipient of the club’s generosity and appreciation. Run organizer Gary Kyte says the $250 contribution to CSPS made at last week’s regular club meeting was in recognition for their help this year, adding plans are proceeding for an even bigger event next year. Andrew Larcombe, CSPS Frontenac Zone President, says the national organization and registered charity is made up of 4,500 volunteers across the country. Of

Michelangelo Café an integral part of Gleaners EMC News - Belleville Caring and sharing. Those are the two main principles Gleaners Food Bank is built on, so it’s only natural the organization’s Michelangelo Café will follow the same path. The entirely free café dates to when Gleaners was still located in the basement of St. Michael’s Church. When the food bank moved, so did the little café, which found itself with its own little comfortable nook at the food bank warehouse on Wallbridge Crescent. For Lynn Hipwell, a retired registered nurse and one of several long-time volunteers that run the food bank café, Michelangelo’s is all about caring and supporting the people that come in for a warm cup of coffee.

“It’s really neat here. One thing is for sure is that it really puts things into perspective for you and helps set your priorities,” she said. Hipwell said that the experience working at the café opened her eyes, though the Corbyville resident noted that she did not hold any negative stereotypes in her mind prior to volunteering at the café. “You just see that there is such a tight knit community here, more so they any other social or economic group and they [food bank clients] really care for one another and look out for each other,” she said. The café itself offers a hot cup of coffee or tea and a place to sit for clients of the food bank while waiting to be helped. The café also offers sandwiches made by area

seniors and Maggies Country Corner as well as homemade baked goods provided by the volunteers. “Something as simple as a sandwich every once in a while helps people stretch their food budget even farther,” noted Gleaner’s executive director Suzanne Quinlan. Quinlan added that the café is an invaluable addition to the food bank, helping to take the edge off clients that are there to use the services of Gleaners. “Coming to the food bank is never a happy occasion for anyone, sometimes people are very upset and don’t know where to turn. That cup of coffee and a kind smile from the volunteers that run the café is worth so much to people that may be experiencing one of their worst days,” said Quinlan.

Time to reinvent the scarecrow EMC News - Stirling Residents are being asked to join the Stanley Cup celebration with a little creative lawn decoration. “Get those scarecrows and Stanley Cups back out and let’s make the town look even bigger and better than we did in

March,” says Economic Development Officer Elisha Maguire. Hockeyville volunteers are asking that all decorations be completed by September 19, the day the CBC is slated to arrive in the village on the lookout for television footage. “We need to be pre-

pared for this,” Maguire says. “Residents, businesses, organizations are all encouraged to decorate and we look forward to seeing your great displays around the community in time for the celebrations taking place September 30 for Kraft Hockeyville 2012.”

Dear Editor, I would like to reply to and thank Lin Clarke for her response of September 6 because you have given me the opportunity to clarify my letter to the editor of August 16. I am and have always been an avid supporter of the Stirling-Rawdon Police Force and its members and may I remind Ms. Clarke that there is no capital punishment in Canada and “stoning” and “hanging” are just that. My comparison of the hearing in Toronto and the testimonies given to that of an “Oscar Preview” was conceived as I sat through the performances of the participants. I’m sorry you chose not to attend because you would know exactly what I am talking about. As to your reference to a “gong show,” this quote was made by one of our own constables at a Police Services Board meeting toward his employer (the Board) and not by me. I am not nor have I ever been prone to gossip but have always prided myself on researching any information thoroughly as to attest to its validity. There appears to be quite a void in the allegations of domestic violence against Mr. X as he has no recollection of ever being questioned let alone charged or advised of a restraining order. You have made unsubstantiated assumptions of my personal feelings with your statement that “I would be happier if “Mrs. K” became another dead victim of domestic violence.” I take much offense to this as I consider myself to be a very kind and caring person. Everyone has access to police records and Police Service Board information

It’s that spirit of understanding that Hipwell hoped to share with the public, noting that times have changed greatly especially in the aspect of the clientele of food banks. “These are working poor, people working several jobs just to try and make ends meet. It’s not that people are looking for a free ride though some may. You see moms and dads come in with little people. You know they are trying; it’s not about not trying, they are doing what they can to feed their children,” she said. At the end of the day, Hipwell said she knows for a fact she is the one getting rewarded. “I get to meet wonderful people, hear their stories and learn a little about their lives and chat over a cup of coffee a few hours a week. I think my only regret is I didn’t start volunteering here years and years ago,” she said with a smile. Hipwell noted the café is looking for any area restaurants that would donate sandwiches; those interested can contact Gleaners directly.

effort. Usually held at the driving range near the clubhouse, recent rains and soggy ground created a change of venue and the drop took place next to the highway at the 10th tee of the Valley Course. This year’s winner, Greg Bent of Belleville, purchased ball number 856 that, when all the bouncing stopped, was touching the tiny bull’s eye. The brainchild of Rotarian and Oak Hills General Manager Julie Obstfeld, the game of chance takes only seconds, but definitely requires the services of Phil Hall, his boom truck and a hopper, this year filled with about 2,000 numbered golf balls. As well there are the supporters, including many golfers at the Oak Hills club, who paid $2 per ball (or $5 for three chances) and a list of local sponsors who continue to back the fund raiser. The grand prize is a oneyear membership to Oak Hills Golf Club or, as Bent opted, a 20-game package to be shared with his golfing partners. Three additional cash prizes of $100 are also handed out throughout the golf season. All proceeds from the fund raiser expected to be about $3,000, will remain in the community, Osborne says, to be used to fund Rotary projects such as Darrin Heasman’s after school sports program and the Barry Wilson Memorial Fund. The grand prize is donated each year by Oak Hills Golf Club, and Rotarians also offered a special thanks to Obstfeld and her Oak Hills staff

the Ottawa Valley Titans. In game two, Cody Smith scored early, assisted by Jacob Fisher, but the Devils could not hold the lead. The Eastern Ontario Wild scored two goals in the last three minutes to earn a 2 - 1 win. In game three, shorthanded goals turned out to be a problem as the Ottawa Jr. 67’s scored three to take an early lead. Colin Doyle answered, with an assist by Austin Fry, but it was not enough. Final score was 4 - 1. In the last game of the tournament, the Devils could not find their legs and fell to the Ottawa Senators by a score of 4 - 0. The team must now get ready for Central Ontario Wolves September 13 and the South Central Coyotes in the league opener September 22.

as well as club members for their support. Other sponsors include Jeanette Molloy (Bridge to Wealth Financial Planner), Oak Hills Water, Newman, Oliver and McCarten Insurance Brokers, The Greer Galloway Group, DL Advertising and boom truck owner Phil Hall. “We couldn’t do the work we do locally without the generous financial assistance

of these good corporate citizens,” says Rotarian Terry Vollum. “They have all been with us since the very first drop and fully understand what

it means to give back to the neighbourhood where we all work and raise our families. “No question about it,” he says, “we live in a very caring community.”

Peter MacKay officially opens cadet hangar dets. “Mountain View has a long history, used since World War II,” he added. Construction of RCAF Station Mountain View commenced in 1940 and was opened in 1941 as one of 97 training schools in the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan. Number 6 Bombing and Gunnery School had 531 personnel. Aircraft based at the station included Fairey Battles, Bolinbrokes, Ansons, Venturas, Hurricanes and Harvards. As many as 64 aircraft were based there at one time. Since World War II,

Mountain View has been used to store military aircraft surplus including the CF5, Tutor and T-33. The first Air Cadet gliding school opened at Mountain View in 1967 as part of the Trenton Air Cadet Camp. In 1971 the glider pilot scholarship program began and it was named the Central Region Gliding School in 1980, with operations in Picton as well. Over 320 cadets receive their glider pilot wings each year. “It’s the best youth development program in our country,” MacKay said. He noted that his wife, who was

with him for the ceremony, had been an air cadet for five years, attaining the rank of Warrant officer First Class. “She outranks me by a long shot,” he grinned. When asked about the recent announcement of her pregnancy, he said he hopes their first child will become a cadet. After the official ribbon cutting, guests were invited to tour the facility and have refreshments. The $8.5-million hangar has 5,000 square metres of space and can house up to 30 gliders and two planes. It also includes 18 offices for staff and two classrooms. The landing field is also used by other military manoeuvres. Today the C130

EMC News - Mountain View - Peter MacKay, Minister of National Defence, cut the ribbon on the new $16-million Central Region Cadet Hangar at Canadian Forces Detachment Mountain View on September 7. “Mountain View is very important to us,” MacKay told the small group of dignitaries and cadets outside the hangar. He said the new hangar is a demonstration of the government’s support of youth. The facility and air field is used for gliding instruction each summer by the air ca-

and C17 practise landing on the gravel runways at Mountain View which is also used by the parachutists as a drop zone. Chair of the Air Cadet League of Canada Thomas Taborowski said there are five locations for glider training across Canada working in partnership with Department of National Defence. The League buys the gliders and tow planes and DND provides instructors. “Ontario has the largest fleet in Canada,” he added. Fred Hopkinson, chair of the Aviation Committee of the Air Cadet League of Canada, said they have 24 S233 gliders and one S222 (for display) and 11 tow planes. He said these gliders are not

manufactured anymore but are very rugged for training and ideal for cadets. He noted former astronaut Chris Hadfield trained here as a cadet. Hopkinson added that the new hangar has heated floors, quite an improvement from the original hangar that had heaters suspended from the ceiling. The glider units are used spring and fall as well as summer training and in winter for maintenance on the gliders. “It is a permanent full-time facility,” he said. Air Cadet Jesse Nelson, 13, from Belleville, summed up the experience this way, “I like gliding,” he said. “It’s a lot of fun flying around. It prepares us for being up in the air.”

EMC News - Stirling - For the first time in its 43-year history, the Oak Hills Flying Club will be holding a three-day fly-in this weekend with dozens of airplanes and campers expected. Modelled on aviation’s well-known Oshkosh event in Wisconsin that draws huge crowds and upward of 15,000 aircraft, organizers here say they aren’t expecting quite that size of a crowd. “Our event in Stirling cannot meet the standards of the Oshkosh event because we are a very small airport,” Flying Club Member, ultralight builder and event organizer Jim Halls says. But there are plenty of activities planned between September 14 and 16 offering free entertainment for

Celebrate the local harvest

EMC News - Regional The Harvest Moon, close to the Fall Equinox, is the traditional time to celebrate the harvest and Harvest Hastings officials are urging area residents to visit area farms, farmers’ markets and farm shops on the weekend of September 29. As well, Harvest Hastings is hosting its Celebrate the Harvest Supper at the Tweed Pavilion on Stoco Lake on September 30. Port Bistro Pub Chef Matt Riga will be preparing a menu that will include meat, vegetables and fruit from local farms. This is a family event where children are welcome. Tickets are $25 for adults and $5 for children six to 12. Check out <> for details on these and other events.

anyone with an interest in airplanes. While weather will remain a factor throughout, Halls says, planned events include ongoing activities and shows, military fly-bys, a Search and Rescue demonstration, and plenty of evening entertainment. Many participants are expected to camp over, under aircraft, for the weekend and the Oak Hills Flying Club has also made plans for concession stands as well as the serving of meals by club members. Live music, a rock climbing wall and magic show are also scheduled during the weekend. Halls is also encouraging local musicians to provide entertainment, noting while the club can’t offer to pay, there will be ample opportunity for buskers to perform

for the many visitors who are expected to arrive from the surrounding area as well as across Ontario. “Our event is substantially smaller,” Halls says comparing the Stirling FlyIn to Oshkosh, “but is free so come out to support our event.” Ultralights as well as general aviation aircraft are expected to arrive in numbers for the first-time event, he says, “that has appeal to almost everyone.” Donations will be gratefully accepted, Halls adds, noting hopes are high the skies over Stirling will be much busier than usual this weekend.

Legion gets another boost from gun collectors By Bill Freeman

EMC News - Havelock The Royal Canadian Legion in Havelock got another solid boost from gun collectors during a Saturday morning show that filled the Branch

389 hall despite monsoonlike weather outside. “I’m seeing what I can do to support the Legion,” organizer Don Martin told the Northwest EMC as a steady

stream of visitors browsed around the hall talking to the 30 vendors, some travelling from as far away as Sudbury and Hamilton. “Every time I see a vet I

want to shake his hand,” says Martin, a gun collector for 52 years, underscoring the reason why he was running a second show at the branch. “We’ve got all kinds of people here, collectors, buyers, sellers. There’s a lot of military stuff here, antique Winchesters [and] a lot of modern stuff,” he said. “Everyone is very, very happy and I’ve had all kinds of telephone calls.” Martin says collectors are pleased to see shows at the Legion and makes sure he distributes pamphlets about the event when he visits gun shows in other communities. The response has validated his desire to organize the shows, he says. “We’re in a hunting community here; it’s part of our heritage.” There are also a lot of target shooters in the area,” Martin added. “What the public doesn’t realize is that we’re just as entitled to shoot clay birds as people are to hit a golf ball. We want to educate people; we want people to know this is part of our heritage and we

do this all within the law. “You get to talk to people and this is where you meet friends at places like this.” Martin says he’s proud to carry on a family tradition something he inherited from his own father and grandfather and one he enjoys with his sons and grandsons. He has been a competitive shooter and owns gold, silver and bronze medals for rifle shooting. His great-grandfather received a Queen’s prize

for shooting. “Anything people want to know there’s enough knowledgeable people here.” The vendors also included a couple of gunsmiths. “We’re quite happy with the turnout we’re getting and it’s supporting our community and Legion. We want to help the Legion stay open.” Martin says he hopes to organize another gun show at the Legion Branch 389 early in 2013.

John Glenn, in the background, stopped to rescue this large snapping turtle whose shell had been grazed slightly by a vehicle as it tried to cross Saskatoon Avenue beside Kennedy Park playground in Campbellford. He soon got some help from Trent Hills Fire Chief Tim Blake, right, and firefighter Kevin Fillier. Snapping turtles stand up and try to bite at the undercarriage of vehicles that try to drive over them, often resulting in fatal injuries.

EMC Lifestyles - Gardening in the near north is a tough go, Gentle Reader. I’m not referring to thin and shallow soils, hard frosts in June and September, deep snow drifts, and branchcracking cold. Those are minor inconveniences that can be easily managed when measured against the real challenge: the pristine beauty of an untouched country.  Perhaps it’s a matter of scale. When you’re standing on a hillside with a panorama of clear lakes, rugged cap rock and millions of trees in front of you, a six pack of petunias can seem a titch inadequate.  Still, there is that within which compels many of us to recreate such a beauteous sight in the more confined spaces of our little estates. I suppose, as long as we measure ourselves to a lesser human standard, we can be satisfied with what we accomplish. We did notice, especially in Sudbury and Espanola,

that the traditional urban planter was much more exuberant than those in our warmer climes. If you could think of an annual, you would have seen it and, in fact, we also noticed quite a few tropical plants. In one Espanola home garden, Mandevilla vines with their fragrant white tubular flowers were happily twining away with bright red Cardinal morning glories and their delicate foliage. On the island itself, garden mums were certainly the commercial offering of choice. Almost every store we saw had some available. We learned that many of them were grown locally and so we had to take a trip to visit the nursery. J D’s Garden Centre on the 10th Side Road, Tehkummah, is a completely equipped operation with growing houses, display beds, hard goods and gifts and a privately owned on-site restaurant  We arrived too early for

Manitoulin Island #2

the plants but The Garden Shed Cafe was enjoying a good morning draw. We were joined in our stroll by co-owner Sharon. The struggles were the same as we experience in the Quinte area, rainfall, high humidity, bugs, fuel costs and some downturn owing to the economy.  They had a few pests that aren’t that much of an issue for us more southerly folk: Asian longhorn beetle, other hardwood borers and the spruce budworm. There were several other garden centres on Manitoulin and perhaps we’ll take the opportunity to visit them during our next trip. Garden clubs are well represented with several societies. Every now and then, GR, we writer types will do an Internet search on ourselves.  It is not uncommon to find your work being used on a web site without permission, keeping in mind that our work

is copyrighted. Quite often, I’ll find myself appearing on a not-for-profit web site and that’s okay. (29 different sites to date.) However, when my material shows up on a commercial site without permission, then steps are taken. I remember clearly doing such a search and came across a newsletter from a club on Manitoulin Island. The quote that sticks in my mind is, “We’re not exactly sure who Dan Clost is but he seems to know what he is talking about.” One does record such ringing endorsements. At a tourist information site, we met with a lady from the Assiginack Horticultural Society who was enthused about a “Community Blooms” event they had just completed for their district. Participation was excellent with lots of support from the municipality and local media. At the hotels and lodges,

Reality Check: And the young get squeezed

Sheila Wray Gregoire EMC Lifestyles - Do you think our children will receive Old Age Security when they retire? I don’t. I doubt CPP will have much left to dole out, either. Do you think our children will enjoy absolutely free health care? I don’t. I’m not even sure I will, and I’ve only got another two and a half decades to retirement. What can’t go on forever won’t. We are currently living through one of the biggest generational transfers of wealth in history, but it isn’t going from the older to the younger. It’s going from the younger to the older. Never has a generation so benefited from demographics and economic trends as the Baby Boomers. They

were born into an era of relative peace, achieved by their parents’ generation. That era brought in a period of economic expansion unseen in modern times. They bought up real estate at low prices. They attended university when tuition was still negligible. They received the best union jobs in manufacturing and in government. And they’ve been promised, and received, tremendous social programs, funded by taxes that everyone pays—especially those younger than Boomers. But this windfall has not, and likely will not, trickle down to the next generations. Today’s new graduates, for instance, have $26,000 on average in debt. That means putting off buying a house for five to ten years, which also results in delaying saving for retirement. Then they get a double whammy, because this generation isn’t likely to see very generous government retirement benefits. But the other generational problem is found in the Want Ads: there aren’t enough of them. As older workers remain at jobs longer, they make it more difficult for young graduates to land jobs. Other retired

people double dip, officially retiring but then returning to substitute teach or take other nursing shifts that may otherwise go to those just starting out. To be fair, if I had the opportunity to double dip, I likely would do it, too. If I needed to work longer in order to afford all I wanted during my retirement years, I would also do that. You do what is in your own best interests. Yet the combined effects of a whole generation doing this—the generation that has most benefited from government programs and economic and real estate trends and unionized jobs—means that life is going to be increasingly harsh for the generations coming after. Instead of expecting your children to surpass you, many in my generation are just hoping and praying that one day our children may have enough money to move out on their own. Is it the Baby Boomers’ fault? No, not necessarily. They happened to be a demographic bloc with huge voting power. And so that generation has voted what is in their best interests. I understand that. But

hanging baskets were popular as were perennial beds. At Red Roof Lodge, our stopping point, it was clear that the Proven Winners brand was well known and well used. An interesting convention, one repeated in many different locations, was the lack of formally marked out beds. Wherever there was a deep enough pocket of soil, a garden was planted. On our way back we stopped in quite a few towns along the way, just to see what they were about. Owen Sound was a jewel, clean, vibrant, and almost all of the folks we talked with were open, happy and wanted to know if we were aware of the events that were happening. (And for those of you who remember the radio morning show with Bob and Dianne, you will be pleased to know that their faces are on the street buses.) A few of the others were definitely tourist

Dan Clost sites and the hustle to get the dollars was evident. A few were almost indistinguishable from any similar size town in our part of Ontario but, I’m pleased to say, there was only one that left us with a bad impression. For the most part, Ontario is an awesome province filled with magnificent sites and wonderful people. To the folks on Manitoulin Island, thank-you for a terrific experience. We’ll be back

I would hope that more Baby Boomer voices would start speaking up about the sustainability of the social programs we have, and the fact that so many tax dollars are coming from those with relatively little net worth and flowing to those with the highest net worth. At some point, perhaps people could vote for their children’s well-being, and not just their own? But then I’d also say something to young people, too. Wake up. Too many of you don’t vote at all, or else you vote in the same people who put us deeper into debt. We can’t keep living like this. We can’t subsidize everyone from birth to death. Europe tried, and it’s crumbling. Our lives will not look like our parents’ and grandparents’ lives did. We will have to take care of ourselves. And it’s time that we accepted that, pulled up the bootstraps, and got serious about it. You can find Sheila on Facebook at <facebook. com/sheila.gregoire. books>.

The great United Way warehouse sale returns Street East, near Haig Road. Lyndsey Harker, the resource coordinator with the United Way of Quinte, said the popular sale will return to Belleville on September 15. She said the doors will officially be opened at 8 a.m. with the sale lasting until 3 p.m., but she cau-

tioned that many show up early. Many show up hours beforehand lining up waiting for the sale to begin, so it would be wise to be a bit early, she said. In previous years a variety of companies including Wilson Sports have joined the steadfast Procter & Gamble contributor, but this year

Federal Jubilee awards given to recipients By Michael J Brethour

EMC News - Belleville A total of 33 residents from Prince Edward Hastings were honoured with the Queen’s Jubilee medal last Sunday afternoon in Belleville. MP Daryl Kramp handed out the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medals, which totalled a full score more than his provincial counterpart handed out just a couple of weeks previous. Medals were presented

at a formal ceremony and reception at the Fairfield Inn and Suites in Belleville Sunday afternoon. Each was honoured for longstanding contributions to the community. The local group is among 60,000 citizens across Canada who will receive the Diamond Jubilee Medal. “So many residents of Prince Edward-Hastings have given so much of themselves to others and to our country. Today I was honoured to present thirty-

three of these wonderful people with a the Queen’s Jubilee medal,” said Kramp. The Jubilee medal pays special tribute to Queen Elizabeth II’s 60 years on the throne and honours her life-long commitment to her responsibilities by recognizing those who have made significant contributions to Ontario and Canada. “You have been nominated by your peers and your colleagues because of your ideals and devotion to ser-

vice. You are recognized for your individual leadership and make significant contributions to your neighbours, to our community and society at large,” stated Kramp to the gathered recipients. Over 100 people were packed into the small room at the Fairfield Inn for the special ceremony, which included nominators and family members of the recipients.

Earnest by Oscar Wilde will launch our season on October 11.

Enter the domineering Lady Brackness, and two young women both determined to marry a man named “Ernest” and you have Oscar Wilde’s “trivial comedy for serious people.” Our second show, Sea Marks, by Gardner Mackay, is a love story that predates email, cell phones and dating web sites; it is a story of

slow mail and courtship. This touching romance will bring smiles and tears as you follow the attempts of Colm and Timothea to build a relationship. Auditions will be held on September 23 and 24. Visit our web site for details. Bedtime Stories is an ingenious comedy by a wellloved Canadian playwright, Norm Foster. He intertwines a number of different stories that all feature a bed as their primary focus. Beginning April 4 is the play Art by Yasmina Reza. When Marc buys a very expensive painting by a popular modern artist, his best friend, Serge, thinks he’s crazy and the painting is a joke. As their arguments become more personal, they border on destroying their relationship. We end the season with a musical favourite The King and I by Rogers and Hammerstein. It is based on Anna and the King by Margaret Landon, with original choreography by Jerome Robbins. The glorious music and lyrics by Rogers and Hammerstein include Getting to Know You, Whistle a Happy Tune, and Hello, Young Lovers. The Belleville Theatre Guild offers elevator service, a barrier-free washroom and room in the front row for wheel chairs and other mobility devices.

When literacy goes digital in the lives of children By Susan Ramsay

EMC Lifestyles - What is a parent to do? We have heard the news. Both the Canadian Paedeatric Society and the American Academy of Pediatrics have looked at the research linking television and screen time with healthy child development. Their recommendations? Children who are two years old or younger should watch no television or other digital screens. Daily screen time for preschoolers should be no more than one to two hours. <www.caringforkids.>; Media and Children from American Academy of Pediatrics, <

advocacy-and-policy/aaphealth-initiatives/Pages/ Media-and-Children.aspx>. For many parents and caregivers these statements have been challenging to accept. Especially in this digitally explosive age of tablets, iPods, digital cameras, smart phones, computers, Skype and YouTube, is it possible to shelter our young children from screens? Screens now include more than televisions, videos or DVDs. Recognizing that screen technology is ubiquitous, the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) and the Fred Rogers Centre, after three years of study, published a position paper to guide early learning

and childcare educators’ use of technology in classrooms and programs. Their paper offers insight for parents, grandparents and caregivers too. Children learn through real-life exploration, creative play, physical activity, conversation and social interaction. “Access to technology tools and interactive media should not exclude, diminish, or interfere with children’s healthy communication, social interactions, play and other developmentally appropriate activities with peers, family member and teachers.” NAEYC and Fred Rogers: Technology and Interactive Media as Tools in Early Childhood Programs

Serving Children from Firth through Age 8, <www.naeyc. org/files/naeyc/PS_technology_WEB.pdf>. What does this mean? It means that the selection of any developmentally appropriate technology for preschoolers must be paired with a focus on how that technology is used. Parents, for example, can enhance their child’s learning by exploring a bird call web site with their child to help identify the bird they just heard. Parents might also play with their child using a tablet art program to discover what colour can be made by mixing red and yellow on their screen. This type of screen time can support children’s

thinking, language and fine motor skills, especially when reinforced and compared with mixing colours using play dough, paint or coloured water. Conversely, parents or caregivers who frequently encourage their child to keep busy by sitting quietly in front of the television, or by playing their computer or video games alone, are creating stumbling blocks to their child’s healthy social, emotional, cognitive and physical development. Though early childhood educators are discouraged from using any technology with infants and toddlers in their programs, the authors of the position paper recognized that there may be a few developmentally appropriate uses of technology for infants and toddlers at home. Parents and toddlers may use Skype to communicate with family. They may view digital photos and talk about the pictures together, or share ebooks. But even these screen

EMC Entertainment What do Hoosiers, academics and strip poker have in common? Well, in “real life,” not much maybe; but in the theatre, it’s a whole other reality. The theatre in this case happens to be Brighton Barn Theatre, which continues its tenth anniversary season with the comedy Academia Nuts—a fine example of the three Rs: readin’, ’ritin’ and romance. Director Kathy Lacasse (Over The River And Through The Woods, Luxury Cruise) has assembled a wonderful cast who all have a fine understanding of what makes comedy work. Linda Sacchett, one of the cuckoo Pigeon sisters in last year’s The Odd Couple, plays the comical Tammi, a gal who

has made a lot of poor life choices that have now come back to haunt her. She meets up with Judith (Pat Dunn in her first major role with BBT) in the living room of Professor Peter Smedfordson, a true academic whose main concern until then had been to have another book published. Next into the mix comes Stewart … and then things really get crazy. Colin Griffiths takes on the role of Stewart, a de-frocked academic and loveable rogue. Griffiths has graced Brighton’s stage many times, including in this summer’s The Ghosts Are Back. Between the three of them, they manage to turn Peter’s life upside down. Peter is played by Jeffrey Van de Kleut, who although new to BBT, is familiar to audiences in Belleville and Trenton. The ABCs of comedy are well covered in Academia Nuts says Lacasse: action, brio and crazy characters. So where do Hoosiers and strip poker fit in? To find out, you’ll have to come and see for yourself. Tickets are available by calling 613-4752144; check the theatre’s web site at <>. The production runs three weekends from September 28 to October 14 for ten shows.

experiences, they advise, need to be used judiciously, echoing our physicians’ warnings. As parents and caregivers we can ask ourselves: • Does the technology and electronic media my child uses build his or her social relationships and nurture conversation? • Does it require my child to interact and engage rather than become passive or act in repetitive mindless ways? • Does exposure to technology match my child’s developmental needs? Parents and educators are encouraged to think not only about if and what technology is shared with children, but also how we offer technology to young children. In the words of the NAECY and Fred Rogers Centre position paper, “Passive use of technology and any type of screen media is an inappropriate replacement for active play, engagement with other children, and interactions with adults.”

Artisans shine despite mixed weather

Frederick Winston sits by one of his painting during the North of Seven Artists’ show that was held in a restored century barn located on the North School Road just north of Havelock.

North of Seven artist Christina Hebor shows off some of her work during their most recent show inside a century barn located on the North School Road a few kilometres north of Havelock. By Bill Freeman

EMC Lifestyles - Havelock - The North of Seven Artisans held their own against Mother Nature over the weekend shielding from torrential rain in a pictureperfect and watertight century barn with the adjacent fields open for Sunday’s portion of the show. “I can’t believe that it’s raining like this after two months without any serious rain,” group founder Judy Moretton said with a laugh. Saturday’s rain cut the number of displays with 16 artists expected for the two days which is another terrific success for the burgeoning group which captivated visitors with their first-ever art in the park show in the heart of Havelock this summer. That show attracted 24 artists and artisans. “We’re trying to get permission for a two-day show next year,” Moretton told the Northwest EMC. “Everyone said they had more visitors and more sales than anywhere else. There really was a nice steady flow of people.”

“It was really good, people liked it and it was good to be out in the town. A lot of people had never seen us before,” artist Judy MacMillan added. “There was a couple there from Germany who have cottaged in Havelock for years and they were really glad to see something at the park,” she said. “A lot of people said they would like to see something going on there every weekend.” “The art has brought us together,” MacMillan says of the group which represents a range of ages, backgrounds and artistic enthusiasms. “I love these people. A lot of times with groups there’s competition going on but we don’t have any of that. Everybody has a positive attitude,” The North of Seven group continues to grow, MacMillan says, and more people seem to be aware of what they are all about. “People are calling Judy all the time and are interested in what is happening.

More people are aware of the group and what it does.” “Everything in here is beautiful,” artisan Christina Hebor said. Hebor is a multi-talented artisan with a strong focus on crochet work although there is also jewellery. “I love trying new things; I like to challenge myself. I do painting but I haven’t

done a lot. I try not to rule anything out until I try it once but my first love is crocheting.” The North of Seven group will hold another show November 3 and 4 at the Old Stone Hall on Highway #7 east of Havelock, and continue to paint together Wednesdays at the Odd Fellows Hall in Havelock.

Park helped hundreds of visitors celebrate Grandparents Day. Guests of all ages were treated to the special demonstrations and displays set up in Heritage Village with the numerous other museum buildings buzzing with activity throughout the day Sunday. Farmtown Park Board President Ron Reid was pleased with the turnout and, addressing a small crowd near the end of the afternoon, thanked the many volunteers and supporters who provided spinning demonstrations, beekeeping displays, a petting zoo and a merry-goround for the youngsters. Also on hand were special guests the Odessa Mater and Sparky the StirlingRawdon Fire Department mascot. Several members of the department were also set up in front of the museum’s display of antique fire equipment, offering stickers, pens, fire hats and books to visitors as well as a chance to pose for a photo with Sparky. Event co-ordinator Harry Danford also commended the many participants who added to the celebrations noting, “We’re certainly fortunate to have that sort of support.” Hundreds of visitors arrived to take advantage of the additional features offered last weekend, including a live musical performance by John Pecek in the courtyard where picnic tables provided some of the preferred seating. Retired teacher Marilyn Girdwood also got an op-

portunity to return to the classroom as she offered visitors some historical insights into the school days of generations ago. Girdwood first taught in the Smiths Falls area, including in a one-room schoolhouse there, before retiring in Brighton where she continues to offer her services as a tutor. But the step back in time and her first work experience at the museum, she says, was an extremely enjoyable and reflective afternoon. Grandparents Day also offered a few surprises with the winning tickets drawn for a toy raffle offering a bicycle, riding tractor and a pair of remote control vehicles. None of the winners attended, however, so prizes could not be immediately awarded. Tickets were sold throughout the summer and drawn Sunday by Hastings County Queen of the Furrow Brianna Dracup, who welcomed guests and spoke of her pending trip to the International Plowing Match to vie for the provincial title as well as her work as Hastings County Queen. Raffle winners were Jane Stella, Bill Clark, Cassandra Wright and Jacob Detlor. Reid says the season, now winding down, has been a busy one at Farmtown Park but events including Agribition, Agricultural Wall of Fame induction ceremonies and the Second Annual Hastings County Beer Festival are all scheduled for the Please see “Farmtown” on page B15

EMC Events - Trenton The horrendous winds and torrents of rain on September 8 destroyed any possibility of the 22nd Scottish-Irish festival going on at Centennial Park to the disappointment of organizers and hundreds

of Celtic music fans. “We ended up cancelling the whole day on Saturday,” said chair Beth Cleaton. “The park was under water, vendors’ areas were a total mess with water up to the knees. We did have a rain plan, however, when the weather turned to

PSB getting up to speed

EMC News - Stirling With the swearing in of provincial appointee Tara Dier this week, the StirlingRawdon Police Services Board (PSB) returned to being a fully functioning, though still shorthanded, administrative body. Mayor Rodney Cooney, recently reinstated following an Ontario Civilian Police Commission (OCPC) investigation, took the chair this week but has no intention of retaining that position, he says. With the pending appointment of a second citizen member of the board, Cooney says, a decision will be made regarding the chairperson. Greg Oliver, still awaiting the outcome of an OCPC investigation, held the position before interim chair Lianne Radocsay was named. Radocsay no longer sits on the board. But with three permanent members of five in place, the local police services board now constitutes a quorum and, Cooney

says, “it’s time to move forward.” The next PSB meeting, where a second provincial appointee is expected to be named, has been rescheduled because of its falling on a holiday Monday, and will be held Tuesday, October 9, at the EOC Room of the Emergency Services Building at 7 p.m.

monsoon type winds that was another story. The wind was so strong it actually blew over the Castle walls and the lattice walls around the stage.” Cleaton said it was very heartbreaking to have to make the decision to cancel the event for the first time in 22 years. “Next year we will be back bigger than ever,” she promised. Colleen Vickers, special events co-ordinator for the city agreed, “Yes, it was a huge disappointment but we had to cancel due to the heavy rains and winds. The park was flooded. Hopefully next year the weather co-operates.” Despite downpours of rain on Saturday, the festival had a very successful military tattoo and concert on Friday night.

brought Celtic music to Trenton, not to be defeated by one day of rain. Other special events in Trenton have been successful over the summer, according to Jacklyn Grimmon, manager of recreation and tourism services. Barks by the Bay on May 26 was held in Centennial Park for the first time with an attendance of over 3,000 people and several dogs. “This year’s event saw a successful move from its original location in Hanna Park to across the river to Centennial Park,” Grimmon reported. “The new venue was essential for accommodating the growing number of vendors and participants to the festival.” With the increased space more programming was also offered including the popular Dock Dogs Diving Group and the Ultimate

Air Dogs Show. Parking was also more available. The committee plans to continue having the event in its new location and growing the festival. Grimmon reported that the Canada Day festivities held in Centennial Park featured a full day of family activities and an attendance of over 8,000. The Trenton Idol Contest, evening fireworks and outdoor family movie were part of the fun. Several new initiatives included a drum circle, worship service and an area to showcase local businesses. Some funding also went to cover the new Big Band Festival which was held on July 22 and featured the Commodores Orchestra, Swing Shift and the Brian Barlow Band. “Overall feedback was overwhelmingly positive,”

Visitors also toured the National Air Force Museum of Canada. The Trenton Lions Club provided breakfast and the cyclists left with an OPP escort. The Bay of Quinte Poker Run on July 28 included the Fraser Park Marina in Trenton as one of its destinations. The event was organized by Poker Runs America in partnership with the Bay of Quinte Tourist Council and attracted 40 boats to the two-day event. A catered lunch was provided at the marina with entertainment at the Ted Snider Bandshell.

Fire department gives away boat and motor

EMC News - Marmora Stirling-Rawdon Fire Chief Rick Caddick says giving away a boat couldn’t have gone any better. Since the spring the Stirling-Rawdon Fire Department has been selling raffle tickets for a boat and motor and other accessories and the lucky winner was announced last weekend at the Marmora Country Jamboree. “He was right there in the crowd,” Caddick says of winner Daniel Martin of Little Britain. “He just screamed and then he came running right up to the stage.” Caddick drew the winning number after firefighters spent three days on site selling thousands of additional tickets. Funds raised will go toward

equipment purchases. Caddick admits there is always a degree of risk involved when raffling any big ticket item, but from the outset department members were confident the fund raiser would prove successful and support at community events, including the Stirling Fair, ensured strong ticket sales. The exact amount raised through the raffle was not immediately available. There are still plenty of numbers to add up, he says. Tickets, Caddick notes, were a hot item at the jamboree, selling well right up until immediately before the draw. Having the winner available for the presentation, he adds, made it that much sweeter.

At the Marmora Jamboree, Stirling-Rawdon Fire Chief Rick Caddick stands beside a very lucky Daniel Martin who became the owner of a new boat and motor last weekend. The fire department fund-raising raffle proved a big success with thousands of tickets sold onsite in the days leading up to the draw and the winner present for the announcement. Photo: Submitted
