Fall Flavour is sweet and aromatic

By Michael J Brethour

EMC News - Belleville Residents had a taste of the fall season last Saturday. From Market Square’s festive pumpkin carving to Front Street’s music and festivities and the Empire Square city vehicle display chili cookoff and live music area families had an action packed four hours of festivities to enjoy. With the Sun shining down, Bill Saunders CEO of the Belleville and District Chamber of Commerce said the milling crowds exceeded the organizing group’s expectations for the event. “We are absolutely ecstatic; the weather is perfect. We could not have asked for better weather,” said Saunders. He noted one area the chamber hopes to improve on is encompassing more of the local community for Culture Days. “If we are going to do anything better for next year we will include the art community and expand the Art walk and build the fall festival in and just continue to create a city wide joint effort to really promote this city,” commented Saunders. Saunders was in the

middle of delivering an additional load of pumpkins to Market Square; it was such a large amount of traffic, they ran out of pumpkins. “You kind of hope for this level of activity but you don’t expect it,” said Saunders.

Restaurateurs along Front Street cooked up tasty fall treats for $2 a serving. Down at Empire Square, youngsters under the watchful eyes of city police, got to look through the scopes of high powered weapons before lining up

Popular former mayor George Zegouras dies By Jack Evans

EMC News - Belleville The funeral service for a man widely praised as “the friendly mayor of the friendly city” was scheduled for Thursday, October 4. George Zegouras, who rose from an immigrant youth from Greece to become one of Belleville’s longest-serving and most popular mayors died Sunday evening in Kingston, surrounded by family members, at the age of 74. He was the victim of a deadly brain cancer which had been diagnosed only a few weeks previously.

The service was scheduled for Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church at 70 Harder Drive at 11 a.m., following visitation afternoons and evenings Tuesday and Wednesday at the Bush Funeral Home. Zegouras came to Belleville in 1954 and became a prominent city businessman. He was also a long and proud member of the Rotary Club of Belleville. He was appointed to City Council in 1973 to complete the term of an alderman who died and served as alderman (the official term at that time) until 1981, when

Roslin Hunter, of Corbyville, was down at the festival with her two children and said it was perfect for children.

he was successful in his first bid for mayor. He then held the office for ten consecutive years, one of the longest-serving mayors in the city’s history. He returned to the mayoralty office for a final three years in 2000. His son, Adam, a local crown prosecutor, described his father as “one of the friendliest people I’ve known,” recalling how a five-minute walk down Front Street could turn into a lengthy session of greetings and

“There is lots to do for the kids and it’s good for kids of all ages,” she said. She said it was the first time she had attended the festival, noting it seemed like an ideal event, agreeing that as a family oriented event it was right on the mark. As far as suggestions for organizers she simply said, “It’s pretty perfect the way it is.”

Gleaners gearing up for city wide food collection By Michael J Brethour

EMC News - Belleville Bring out your food! That’s what Gleaners Food Bank is hoping city residents will be doing to help out the food bank next week in the organization’s annual city wide food drive. Suzanne Quinlan, executive director of Gleaners, said the annual food drive is essential to the organization being able to supply their clients with food. The mass food drive, now in its 20th year, features a small army of volunteers riding city buses all over the city going door-to-door collecting donations from residential homes. For those in the high rise buildings, Quinlan said a good

portion of them will have collection barrels. “The food drive is our one time a year event that is essentially our lifeline,” said Quinlan. Last year the food bank spent $76,000 purchasing staples for the food bank: items like pasta, pasta sauce, fruit, and formula for babies, soup, apple juice, peanut butter, tuna, beans and Kraft dinner. “Those are the items we need on a consistent basis so hopefully those are the types of items people can donate for the food drive, also we will accept fresh fruits and vegetables the day of the drive,” noted Quinlan. Volunteers and community stewards for the food drive

are essential to the success of the event noted Quinlan. “A neighbourhood steward is a family that opens their garage door so the neighbourhood bring their donations to the home. [That way] collectors only have one house in the neighbourhood they collect from making the canvassing process easier,” said Quinlan. Volunteers for the food drive will gather at Market Square for 12 noon on Sunday, October 14. Those interested in helping out as a steward or as a canvasser can contact the food bank at 613-962-9043. “It’s a great day for families to get together and make a difference in their community,” she said.

EMC Business - Belleville Chanya Laohmatvanich found out that the friendly city has a taste for her particular brand of Thai food in the first four hours of business. When the final business permit came through at 5 p.m. early in April Laohmatvanich decided to open the doors that evening generating over $500 in the first four hours for the Thai House Cuisine on Belleville’s Front Street. Since then it has been a whirlwind of business and adapting to the downtown restaurant, but Laohmatvanich elected to have an official

grand opening last Wednesday to celebrate the opening and the mounting success of the business. Laohmatvanich, a native of Thailand who immigrated to Canada in the mid-1990s and subsequently went to college for Hotel and Restaurant Management, said the Belleville restaurant marks the sixth restaurant she operates. She noted the atmosphere of Belleville was attractive to her decision in creating another restaurant here. “It’s a great small town feel; the people here are very friendly. I am very happy with the decision to open my

restaurant here,” she said The fully “liquor licensed” dining facility at 230 Front Street has a seating capacity of 90 people. Laohmatvanich said the menu is an authentic sampling of Thai Cuisine. The restaurant has a full capacity for take out, though no delivery service has been put in place at this point. “That is something we may consider in the future, but no firm plans of as yet,”

He was also credited for being a strong supporter of the launch of Belleville’s popular Waterfront and Folklorama Festival in 1985, which continues annually. Always smiling and friendly, Zegouras went into a state of deep grief when his wife of 35 years, Diane, died some years ago, another victim of cancer. Those who were close to him suggested it was a blow from which he never fully recovered.

conversations. Former aldermen who served with him, and former mayors were among those praising his efforts on behalf of his adopted city. One long-serving council member, Joe Cox, echoed Adam’s comments: “He loved this city and he loved people,” he said. Prominent local historian and another former member of council, Gerry Boyce, praised Zegouras for his strong support of the city’s heritage and preserving the contributions of prominent citizens by naming parks after them. Another former mayor and long-serving alderman, Mary-Anne Sills, described Zegouras as “really a may-

Quinte Health Care faces looming deficit By Jack Evans

EMC News - Belleville A deficit looms over Quinte Health Care for the current year, board members were told at their September meeting Tuesday. Indications for the first quarter presented at the board are about $350,000 so far. Finance chair John Embregts said he remains hopeful some economies can be found over the rest of the year to reduce that. Chief Financial Officer Brad Harrison added that the corporation is wrestling with a shortfall of $1 million in originally

expected provincial funding after a cutback. To some extent, he admitted, a deficit is “planned,” but it is also “higher than expected.” He also singled out added costs for electricity, blamed on air conditioning use over a long, hot summer, and water use, blamed on continuing construction at the Belleville site. Embregts also reported on continuing construction on Phase 2 of the Belleville hospital which should be completed in “36 months” and is on tar-

The corporation is wrestling with a shortfall of $1 million. the new emergency department should be ready by next spring. CAO Mary Clare Egberts commented that the new emergency section

will greatly increase the hospital’s ability to deal with more patients sooner. Cutting emergency waiting times has been a key goal for the hospital in recent months as part of a “strategic plan.” Other reports to the board expanded on details about implementation and monitoring of that plan, showing substantial progress in some key areas, but failure to meet targets in a few. One significant area, cited earlier in this story, is balancing the budget. Also failing by more than ten per cent of

planned expectations were CT Scan priority wait times at both Belleville and Trenton hospitals. Rewarding for Egberts and board members was the reduction in patient falls, which are on target. One problem the hospital complex had been wrestling with for some months was supplies of certain drugs caused by a

Battle in the Saddle a success By Michael J Brethour

EMC News - Belleville Last Saturday’s Battle In The Saddle event surpassed expectations. The event used as a promotion for the Pedal For Hope campaign consisted of police, firefighters and CFB Trenton personnel riding stationary bikes at the Quinte Mall’s Kindness Court for eight hours. Sue Rollins, fund-raising co-ordinator for the Brighton and Prince Edward Hastings Unit of the Canadian Cancer Society, said funds raised from the Battle in The Saddle and the Pedal For Hope Campaign are marked for pediatric cancer research. Rollins said that for the inaugural event, the partnering organizations of the Belleville police and the CCS had hoped to raise $5,000. Rollins commented she

He also commended the staff for alleviating the problem for patients by careful rationing and substitutions during the shortages.

fully expected to exceed that goal, but later reported triple that amount was raised. “Incredible support with only five teams participating,” wrote Rollins. Rollins noted the sobering facts that locally there are 18 children suffering from various forms of cancer. “It’s for those kids that we are doing what we are doing here today,” she said. She said that on average 1,300 Canadian kids will be diagnosed with cancer each year. “Those are staggering statistics that translate into devastated families,” commented Rollins. She noted the support of Goodlife Fitness supplying the stationary bikes was essential to running the event. A total of $15,000 was raised.

Letters to the editor

Milligan deserves credit, not criticism Dalton McGuinty, on what the Conservative member rightfully described as “selfserving drivel.” McGuinty’s government initially bribed the teachers’ union when he needed their support. Now that the Liberals are drowning in red ink, McGuinty wants the union money returned to help improve his own image. Milligan has pointed out that the Conservatives supported a bill, including the same two-year wage freeze on teachers during the election last fall. The timing wasn’t right for McGuinty, who preferred making it look like the Liberals had

Charge trespassers and lose the problem

Dear Editor, This letter is in response to F. Bloggs’ letter from the September 27 edition. I think you have mixed up your hunting laws with the property laws. You can pick up an updated copy of the hunting laws at any Service Ontario office or anywhere hunting and fishing licences are sold. On page 24, it clearly states that a hunting licence does not give a hunter the right to enter private property so we Neanderthal, redneck hunters are up-to-date on the huntin’ laws. And how do you know the person who almost caused an accident because of the “rack” wasn’t a nature lover like you profess to be. I am getting really tired of people who don’t hunt complaining about hunters especially when there’s name calling. Hunters are nature lovers just like yourself and enjoy eating what they kill. If you have a problem with this then that’s your problem NOT anyone else’s. You clearly have a problem with trespassers. If you call the police and charge them then the problem will likely go away.

vour of the Bill 115 wage freeze, he was exercising his right to denounce the hypocritical spin engaged in by the McGuinty gang. No, Mr. Rinaldi, our MPP

wasn’t speaking out of both sides of his mouth like most politicians. Rinaldi calls Milligan “two-faced” but if anyone qualifies for that narrative

it’s McGuinty himself. And why should we be listening to anything Rinaldi has to say. Wasn’t he decisively beaten in the last election? Rolly Ethier, Campbellford

One of the safest sports there is

Dear Editor, I read F. Bloggs’ letter and shook my head in disbelief; is he or she for real? Don’t paint all hunters with the same brush, as all drivers don’t speed. My grandfathers, dad, brothers, uncles, aunts, cousins, and friends, some of who are policemen, doctors, lawyers, trades people and a lot of just good friends all hunt, and safely I might add. My own dad and mother, both in their 80s, drive

through Algonquin Park every fall looking at the colours, and looking for that rack. I take offence at all of them and I being called Neanderthals and low-lifes. I’m sure if the F. Bloggs family tree has any limbs on it, there would likely be a hunter there. I’m also glad to hear that in Tweed, Bloggs is the only “civilized person.” I bet your neighbours love you. Hunting is a huge heritage outdoor sport, which

brings thousands of dollars to local business and communities. It is one of the safest sports there is. If you have a problem with trespassing, post your property properly and call the police if problems persist. If you have a problem with people looking at wildlife along our roads, don’t follow so close … relax … go around! If you don’t like wearing orange while walking on the road, don’t wear it; mind

you, out on a side road it is easier for drivers to spot. If you have no deer around, well I’m surprised at that; I thought deer liked nuts. As a hunter I have taken both hunter safety and firearms safety courses. I am fully trained not to trespass, not to shoot on or across the road, and not to shoot at or toward people, no matter what colour they’re wearing … even the stupid ones. Regards, Don Nimigon, Marmora

Dear Editor, Re: Breastfeeding What a difference 50 years makes. When my first child was born, it was common practice for babies to be bottle-fed, nurses looked after the 2 a.m. feedings and mothers were kept in hospital for approximately a week to teach them how to bottle feed and change their baby. Unlike most new mothers I chose to breastfeed. I was fortunate that at that time there was a nurse in the maternity wing who wholeheartedly supported breastfeeding. There wasn’t the help for new mothers then that there is now. Family members were not allowed in to watch the birth not even dad. He sat in the waiting room waiting for the news and to learn whether he

had a son or a daughter. Since nursing a baby was not common place, I recall one morning that I awoke for the 6 a.m. feeding and realized my baby had not been brought to me for the 2 a.m. feeding. I was certain something had happened to him during the night. For whatever reason the nurse on duty during the night had fed my baby. There was no such thing as family rooms or public places for mothers to nurse their baby. There has been such a reversal in attitude that now new mothers are expected to nurse their babies. How fortunate for today’s mom that attitudes have changed. For mothers who are able to breastfeed, it’s definitely the way to go. It is cheaper, no

sterilizing required plus it is always there and at the right temperature.

Yours truly, Mary Culloden, Belleville

Dear Editor, I have sent an email to our M. P. Rick Norlock asking him to initiate a public inquiry into the actions of the Canadian Food Inspection Agency. When this agency can send 20 people to harass Montana Jones and slaughter four healthy innocent lambs in Trent Hills, while at the same time it takes them eight days to respond to a reported outbreak of e-coli in Alberta, then we

can conclude that the entire management group is totally inept and they all should be relieved of their positions and replaced by ethical, competent people. Our Minister of Agriculture, Mr. Gerry Ritz, should do the honorable thing and hand in his resignation. If you agree (or disagree), please express your opinion to your local Member of Parliament. Jim Kovacs, Brighton

Dear Editor, A former coach of the CDHS Flames, at a time when it was rated at one of the best high school hockey teams in the province, MPP Rob Milligan doesn’t mind taking the heat if he believes in the cause. So when he was recently booted out of the legislature at Queen’s Park, it was more of a testimony to his integrity, rather than something offensive. If the headline attempted to indicate he did something wrong, think again. Milligan showed far more honesty than even his leader, Tim Hudak, by challenging the teflon Premier,

Minister should resign

Small farms attacked Dear Editor, Last week’s photo of a government raid on an innocent Hastings farmer must have stirred even the dimmest viewer. Yes, it’s just another attack on small farms, like the closing of local abattoirs or the Monsanto-izing of our seed crops or the imposing of soon-to-beobsolete solar panels on Agrade farmland. Your photo makes this particular injustice inescapably clear. To see these rare, beautiful and perfectly healthy sheep torn from the arms of a grieving farm woman raises every hackle of anger and contempt I can direct at the Canadian Food Inspec-

tion Agency, the same crowd that wanted to destroy our wood buffalo herd for having brucellosis, an endemic disease that has been with them since the Ice Age. Yes, this is the same agency that can’t even label food properly! Our farm no longer breeds sheep because of the abovementioned “improvements” but we still grow trees … until the inevitable appearance of “inspectors” to tell us to destroy pines and maples unless they are laboratory approved by people who never grew them.

Double tap EMC Editorial - “Dou-

ble Tap” is what mobsters do when they put somebody down. One bullet in the heart, one in the head. That way they stay down. It’s practically standard operating procedure among hitmen. Then there’s a different, nastier kind of Gwynne Dyer “double tap.” Suppose you live in some hill village in western Pakistan, and one of the families nearby has a boy fighting with the Taliban who has come home for a visit, bringing several friends with him. It’s worrisome, because you are always hearing American drones overhead—and sure enough, one day there is a terrifying explosion and his house is destroyed. What do you do now? There was a whole extended family living in that house: children, old folks, a cousin or two. Some of them are probably still alive under the rubble, perhaps badly injured. Do you rush over and help to dig them out? Better not. The Predator or Reaper drone (lovely names) will wait until all the neighbours have gathered round, and then launch a second Hellfire missile onto the site. Double tap. “These strikes are becoming much more common,” Mirza Shahbad Akbar, a Pakistani lawyer who represents the victims of drone strikes, told “The Independent” newspaper recently. “In the past it used to be a one-off, now and then. Now almost every other attack is a double tap. There is no justification for it.” Stanford University’s International Human Rights and Conflict Resolution Clinic and New York University School of Law’s Global Justice Clinic have just released a report, based on nine months of research and 130 interviews, which concludes that barely two per cent of the victims of U.S. drone strikes were known militants. That’s not to say that everybody else killed or injured was an innocent civilian, but these are definitely not “surgical” strikes. The best estimate of the number of people killed in U.S. drone strikes over the past eight years comes from the Bureau of Investigative Journalism: between 2,532 and 3,251 dead in Pakistan, Yemen and Somalia. Of those, between 475 and 879 deaths were civilian noncombatants who just happened to be nearby when the Hellfire hit—often because they were trying to rescue survivors from an earlier strike. The Stanford/New York University study, entitled “Living Under Drones,” describes the Bureau of Investigative Journalism’s database as “far more reliable than other aggregating sources,” based on a far wider range of sources than other comparable studies. And of course there are no official numbers. The U.S. government doesn’t even try to count the casualties.

Washington doesn’t formally admit the Central Intelligence Agency is running a remote-control assassination program at all, because it is legally a very doubtful area. At the same time, it strives to reassure the American public that there is almost no “collateral damage”: that practically all the victims are “bad guys”—including the 175 children who, according to the Bureau’s numbers, have been killed in the strikes. Let’s be honest here: children always get killed in air strikes. When you explode ten kilograms (20 pounds) of high explosives on a single target (the standard Hellfire load), there can be nothing surgical about it. The really questionable aspects of the CIA’s drone program lie elsewhere. First, is it legal to make air attacks in a country that you are not at war with? Second, can you distinguish sufficiently between “militants” and civilians living in the same area? And, above all, why are you making doubletap attacks? The legal question is particularly problematic in Pakistan, where the government has not authorised the United States to carry out attacks. Islamabad tacitly accepts them, but sometimes public opinion forces it to respond vigorously, as when an American missile killed 24 Pakistani soldiers last year. That blunder also highlights the difficulty of distinguishing between “militants” and civilians through the lens of a remote-controlled camera. It’s the double-tap attacks that are truly shameful. Do the controllers really think that the people rushing to rescue the survivors of a first strike are all “militants” too? Or are they just trying to deter people from helping those who were wounded in the first strike? That is certainly the effect of the policy: villagers now often leave the injured survivors of an attack in agony for hours before going to help them, for fear of becoming victims too. There’s no point in telling the military and their masters that this tactic is counterproductive, generating more new “militants” than it kills. The bureaucratic machine doesn’t respond to such subtle arguments. There’s probably no point in talking about the moral problem of killing innocent people either. But the fact that some fifty countries now have drones should inspire a little reflection about this unwritten change in the rules of engagement. The latest proud possessor of these weapons is Iran, which has just unveiled a new drone with a range of 2,000 kilometres (1,300 miles), capable of flying over most of the Middle East. If it is really copied from the U.S. drone that Iran captured last year, then it has major airto-ground capabilities. So what if it starts using those capabilities over, say, Syria, against the rebels that the Syrian government calls “terrorists”? The U.S. could not really complain (though no doubt it would). What’s sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander.

Letter to the editor

A history on public service employees

Dear Editor, I had intended to write sooner, but like many others I have picked up what acts like a nasty cold. Ms. Barker, in my opinion, wrote an excellent letter (in the September 20 issue), and I hope she does not mind me expanding on her thoughts and information. I would point out that in the early 1960s there were no pensions for most of the public service, thus they were given the right to accumulate sick time, up to six months’ worth and to receive a payout at retirement as a gratuity of kind. At the same period there was a hangover concept left over from the Great Depression that public service jobs had great security so the workers should receive a lower wage than say, the skilled trades. The incoming baby boomers did not accept that heifer dust. However, at the time public service workers did not pay EI because it was naively thought they would never be laid off but no one was counting on “Mad Maniac Mike.” It was also in this era that the CPP was developed with three major flaws, not everyone had to enroll like in the case of EI and the fund did not accumulate. It was thought those working would pay the pensions of those retired but failed to recognize that eventually there would be more retired persons than those still working.

It was sadly underfunded as it continues to be to this day. It was in the late 1960s that the Robarts regime tried to bring in regional government across the province. Luckily it was rejected in this area but part of the deal was that the then Minister of Education, “Wicked Willie” Davis conned us into accepting county-wide school boards by handing out grants to cover the cost of implementation and then when he became premier clawed those grants back so the full cost of education fell on local taxes. It was during this period that the teachers got better organized, as did other public servants, and got increased salaries and benefits. Oh, and RRSPs were pushed mainly for the self-employed such as doctors and lawyers. If you were in a pension plan, you could purchase a limited amount of RRSPs. In closing, I believe we are going to have a major economic problem in about five years time, when a goodly number of ladies, who have only worked part-time without benefits, try to retire and have to depend on only CPP and OAS. They will find it does not come anywhere near meeting the cost of living. John A. D. McLean, Belleville

Poor taste for sure By Terry Bush

EMC Editorial - I’ve talked about Justin Bieber before. We don’t get along because I think he’s always trying to one up me with his new cars and overwhelming success. But I have to give credit where credit is due, the guy obviously has some talent. If you haven’t heard, Bieber was sick on the weekend, during the kickoff event of his new tour in support of his new album called … now come on people, why would anyone think I’d know what a Bieber album was called. I’m a rocker who loves his bluegrass music and his blues, three musical genres as foreign to Justin Bieber as taking a razor to his baby bottom face. Anyway, the tables were turned on young Biebs and while singing he was the one who vomited not once but twice during the performance. For that I just have to give the man/boy some credit. If a guy can cough his cookies not once but twice in the span of half an hour and go on to finish his set, well some of us might even be impressed enough to admit that the Bieber is all right and we might admit out loud that he’s a Canadian. He played through the pain. He barfed, came back and danced up a storm, upchucked again and bounced back to thrill his young teenybopper audience once again. The kid’s got staying power. But that’s not the talent I’m referring to. Supposedly according to the news report I read, Justin Bieber’s special talent is that he can sing and vomit at the same time. I’m thoroughly amazed by this. In fact, I’ve just spent the last half hour trying to replicate this major achievement and I can’t come close. I’ve tried coughing and singing at the same time. No go. I made an attempt to croon and sneeze to no avail. I even contemplated going back into my prepubescent bag of tricks by swallowing a raw egg to see if it still makes me throw up like it used to when the urge for truancy used to overtake me in the hour before I was expected to go to Sunday School. But then I remembered that during my weight lifting period I used to eat raw eggs because that’s what Aaaaanode did before he became an action star, so they probably would have no effect. My only other recourse would have been to put a finger down my throat but a finger would certainly have gotten in the way of hitting the high notes so I reconsidered. Without a re-creation of sorts of Bieber’s defining moments on the weekend stage, I had to resign myself once again that Justin Bieber is a better man than I am. He spewed but didn’t miss a beat. Fact is, nobody even noticed that things other than musical notes were flowing past his lips until he bent over. Still the singing continued for a few seconds after the flow started according to the reports. Too bad Ed is dead, Sullivan that is. Can you just imagine how amazed the audience would have been to witness this unbelievable feat? Señor Wences the ventriloquist would have paled by comparison and he could spin plates, juggle and do voices at the same time as those of you old enough to remember can attest. Justin Bieber is simply, the man. Rock musicians could learn a few things from Mr. Bieber. Can you just imagine the years of great music we would have had if Justin Bieber were alive in the seventies. He could have sat down with Jimi Hendrix, John Bonham and Bon Scott and maybe given them a few pointers on breathing while nauseous. Maybe that’s a bit of a stretch since they all reportedly died by asphyxiation after vomiting while sleeping but still, it does my heart proud to think Justin could have helped, kind soul that he is. So what I’ve learned from the weekend is this. Even if Justin Bieber eventually goes the route of the aforementioned rock and rollers and descends into a world of booze and drugs, he probably has it covered. We can look forward to many years to come of Biebs singing no matter what becomes lodged in his throat or is expelled from it. Maybe he’s even more talented than I think he is. There is the possibility that Justin Bieber can, if his mouth is otherwise occupied, sing through his nose. Now that’s a talent I could truly appreciate. If I could master it I’d be a baritone like Bowser from Sha Na Na given the size of my proboscis. But back to Justin Bieber. The kid is only 18 years old with a long performing career ahead of him but should he ever decide he’s had enough of tween girls, he could be an amazing harmonica player, Mongolian throat singer or didgeridoo player because the truly great players of all these instruments including the human throat, can breathe in and out at the same time. Justin Bieber can do that with his mouth full. You’ve got to leave it to Bieber. Belleville EMC - Thursday, October 4, 2012


Victoria Schoolhouse raising funds through Gala By Kate Everson

EMC News- Ameliasburgh - A new fund raiser for the Victoria Schoolhouse in Ameliasburgh will be held November 3 at the Isaiah Tubbs Resort. “Next year it will be in Wellington,” said project manager Gabrielle Cole. “It will be bigger.”

Cole works at the schoolhouse which is run by the Quinte Educational Museum and Archives just outside the Ameliasburgh pioneer museum. “This is our last weekend for the season,” she said on September 29 during the Ameliasburgh Fair. “I work here and at the ROM [Royal

Ontario Museum] and the AGO [Art Gallery of Ontario], but my home is in Picton.” Cole was just hired this year to be pioneer school mistress at the restored schoolhouse and hopes to organize more events. “I hope to breathe new life into it,” she said. “My

goal is to do more projects.” One of the projects this summer was embroidery kits for children to try out. “The kids love it,” she said. “They want to be challenged, not just sit in front of a TV or computer. It promotes dexterity along with confidence.” The schoolhouse is setting

Belleville Carrier of the Week

up a partnership with the Ameliasburgh museum and re-enactors to hold summer camps at the site next year. Cole has also helped organize craft shows all summer and music nights in Wellington to raise funds. “The stove needs a pipe,” she said pointing to the old wood stove. “The woodshed needs renovations. The floor is all rotted out. It was from the 1800s.” She is hoping to get two portables for storing the archives collected from the schoolhouse and eventually get a permanent facility. They have 4,000 artifacts in their collection which need to be on display for the public. Currently, they are stored in a building that is not open most of the time.

“We are struggling to keep the archives,” she said. “We need to make it more accessible.” The Victoria Schoolhouse was built in 1904 but the Quinte Educational Museum and Archives has artifacts spanning everything from the 1800s to 1966. Inside the building is everything from lunch pails to chalk boards and the fearsome leather strap. “A lot of older people come in and have strong memories of their school days,” she says with a smile. For more information see <> or visit them on Facebook. Established in 1977 the non-profit organization’s goal is to preserve educational history for future generations.

How to select the right carpeting for your home Although many people may tout the benefits of hardwood flooring over carpeting, there are plenty of individuals who like to have the soft and luxurious feeling of carpeting underfoot. Selecting the right carpeting for a particular room and purpose can be a bit daunting because of the abundance of available colors and materials. Carpeting can be an added safety measure that makes play areas safer, potentially lessening the severity of an injury in the event of a fall. This is why carpeting is often preferred in children’s rooms and play areas. There are other advantages to carpeting as well. It can help insulate rooms both in the summer and winter. It can be easier on feet than a hard floor, and few materials absorb sound better than carpet. Choosing the right carpeting for a room comes down to identifying the kind of foot traffic you expect in your home and which carpeting options most suit your needs. Here are some tips to get started. • Don’t overlook padding. Padding can make the difference in the way carpeting feels and how long it lasts. The thickest or most expensive padding isn’t necessarily the best or the best-suited for your home. However, it is wise to pick a pad that matches the type of carpeting you’re selecting. You may be able to go with a thinner pad in low-traffic rooms and under dense carpeting like berber. In high-traffic rooms, choose thicker, more durable padding. Padding prevents carpet backing and fibers from coming apart over a duration of time, so if you’re spending a lot on the carpet, it pays to invest in a padding that will last the duration of the carpet as well. • Recognize the type of carpeting that best suits your needs. There are many different types of carpeting, and they won’t all be the perfect match for your home. For example, plush and saxony carpets are better in low-traffic areas. These carpets may show footprints and also vacuum tracks and dirt. Berber, meanwhile, is more flat and dense, making it highly effective at masking stains

and tracks. Textured carpets like frieze are cut from fibers of different heights, so they mask stains and are also softer on the feet than berbers. An entryway or a den may be better off carpeted in a dense carpeting, while a bedroom may be fine and luxurious with plush carpeting. Carpeting may come in stain-resistant varieties or low-maintenance options. These are generally best in homes with pets and children. However, you may be able to save money by opting out of special treatments to resist stains and simply invest in a steam vacuum, instead. • Choose color wisely. Choosing a color comes down to preference and how much the room will be used. Although light, neutral colors are often preferred because they work well in just about any room, lighter colored carpets will show stains much more easily than other carpet colors. Textured, multi-colored carpets are preferable to hide stains and can look just as elegant as solidcolored carpeting. Much in the way paint colors are chosen, carpeting colors come down to personal preference. Drama may be created with bold colors that draw the eye to the carpet. However, for those who want the carpet to fade into the background instead of upstaging decor, neutral colors are better. • Hire a good installer. There are many beautiful carpets available, but unless you choose a reliable installer and store, you may end up paying more or receiving subpar service. Poll friends and family members for recommendations to help you narrow down options. Then be sure to have stores price out materials separate from installation so you can make more accurate comparisons. Also, you don’t necessarily need to use an installer provided by the carpet store. You can shop around to find a separate installer or even do the work yourself. Carpeting can make a fine addition to your home and make it feel more comfortable and inviting. Remember to take your time when selecting carpeting, as your decision will have long-lasting effects.

Oftentimes, buying a home opens up a bottomless pit of opportunities for projects and improvements. While some homeowners engage in different repairs and fixups out of necessity, many others like to freshen-up their

A home office is a necessity for many adults these days. While some people have entire rooms available to house a home office, others have to make do with less space, and that can mean fitting an office into a tight space. The first step in establishing a small home office is figuring out the space you have and any limitations that may accompany it. For example, maybe you have an unused corner in the living room but don’t want to have wires and equipment out in the open. An armoire-type desk that can be closed when not in use is a viable option in such a situation. Perhaps there is an unused closet in a bedroom. A wall-mounted desk surface, such as a piece of custom-cut countertop material, complete with foldaway mouse and keyboard tray can easily turn the space into a compact nook. Maybe there is an entryway with a small table that would be large enough for a laptop. A stool or ottoman that can be tucked under it can serve as a desk chair and extra seating for company.

Professionals who might help you get a mortgage The process of buying a home can be intimidating, especially for those who have never before owned their own homes. Nowadays, more homeowners are choosing to get preapproved for mortgages before they begin searching for a home in an effort to make the home-buying process go more smoothly when they find the home for them. One of the first things buyers must do when seeking preapproval is find the right mortgage lender. There are many different ways to find a mortgage lender who will fund your home loan. Prospective homeowners would be wise to familiarize themselves with mortgage lenders before beginning the preapproval process. • Retail lender: These are lenders who will reach out directly to prospective home buyers. Retail lenders include banks with loan officers in local branches, though many banks are also wholesale lenders. • Wholesale lender: A wholesale lender is one who funds a mortgage acquired through a mortgage broker. A wholesale lender will buy the mortgage from the broker after the broker has found the customer and processed the loan. • Mortgage broker: Mortgage brokers are essentially matchmakers. A mortgage broker will examine a pro-

spaces out of personal preference instead of need. But even the most well-intentioned projects can be waylaid if budgets are tight. What many homeowners may not realize is that there are many ways to make updates and changes to a home that do not require a major overhaul or a large price tag. The following are seven projects that won’t break the bank. 1. Move around furniture. You may be able to change the look of a room without spending any money. Interior designers know how to arrange furniture for maximum appeal, but the average homeowner can do it, too. Find a focal point in the room and angle the furniture toward it. Don’t make the focal point the television, however. Try changing the placement of chairs and sofas. 2. Add lighting. Lighting at different levels in the room can create a vibrant impact. Many homeowners mistakenly put in a couple of table lamps and think that will be adequate. However, properly illuminating a room means varying the lighting to create different moods at different times. Plus, more light can make a room feel more welcoming. 3. Add new pillows or drapes. Changing a few aspects of a room can give it an entirely new look. If you want to add a splash of color but don’t know what to do, think about incorporating some new throw pillows or change the curtains. An accessory here and there in a bright color also can incorporate a new hue without it being

spective buyer’s finances and then work to find the buyer a lender who can provide him or her with the best rate and terms. The broker may charge buyers a fee, but the broker will earn the bulk of his or her money when the buyer is matched with a lender. • Mortgage banker: A mortgage banker will fund the loan initially. But mortgage bankers often sell the loan to secondary lenders. Many men and women might be familiar with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, both of which are secondary lenders. A mortgage banker will borrow money from the a bank to fund the initial loan, then repay that bank if and when the loan is sold to a secondary lender. • Loan officer: Loan officers can be very helpful to buyers, helping them through the loan application process and offering advice on finding a mortgage that best meets a customer’s needs. A loan officer may be referred to as a mortgage consultant or a home loan consultant, and many will earn a commission on the loan once it is finalized.

overwhelming. 4. Change knobs or small accents. Give a room a new look by focusing on the small details. Switch out cabinet knobs for something updated and modern. Take inventory of wall outlets and light switches and think about selecting new ones that coordinate with your home decor. 5. Use plants. Empty corners or spots you’re not certain how to fill may benefit from a plant. Plants add instant color and visual appeal to a room. Plus, having live plants can help improve indoor air by filtering out contaminants. A home with plants also feels more cozy. 6. Hang new wall art. It may be time to look at your photos and artwork and make a few adjustments. Finding new prints to hang could instantly change a room’s ambience. And you needn’t spend a lot of money on professional photography, either. Grab your camera and take a few close-up shots of flowers or take in a landscape scenery. Many of today’s home printers can produce professional-quality prints in minutes. 7. Try a new coat of paint. After you’ve exhausted other avenues, choosing a new paint color may be the new look you desire. Painting is one of the least expensive yet most dramatic methods of changing a home’s interior. With dozens of hues to choose from, and new apps that enable you to take snapshots of things in nature or in your life and match them up to a paint color, you will have scores of opportunities to explore fresh new colors for your home.





Starts September 28th - November 12th

room will instantly feel more airy. • Minimize wall hangings and keep fixtures smaller. Filling the walls with knickknacks may contribute to clutter and make the space appear closed in. Use decorative items sparingly. • If possible, store towels in a closet outside of the bathroom. This way you won’t have to devote space inside the bathroom to a closet, leaving more room for other things. • While some people like the thought of a separate bath and shower, in smaller bathrooms this may not be possible. Instead, look for a combined shower and bath, or select a walkin shower with a much smaller profile. • Windows are often welcome in bathrooms because of the ventilation they provide, but they could be a hindrance in smaller bathrooms because they take up prime wall space. Cover a window in a shower stall to free up space. Just be sure to install a venting fan to reduce moisture in the bathroom. • Maximize wall space if you need storage. Find cabinets that will fit beneath windows or be able to fit in thin areas between sinks and toilets. Over the toilet is prime area for cabinetry. • Consider a frameless shower. This is a partitioned area of the bathroom that’s typically only cordoned off by a thin wall or piece of glass. Or a shower with no walls at all is the ultimate in space-saving. The entire bathroom floor is decked out in tile, and a portion is sloped toward a shower drain. • Think about installing a skylight if you prefer natural light, but there is no room for a traditional window. Thinking creatively can help turn a cramped bathroom into a space-saving and well-designed room homeowners desire.

Renovating bathrooms is commonly at the top of home improvement to-do lists. Though some rooms around the house may remain timeless, bathrooms, like kitchens, show their age (and era) much more easily, which could be why homeowners are always on the lookout for new ideas. Although many people may dream about creating a spa-type oasis in their homes, not everyone is lucky enough to have a large bathroom, much less a large budget for a full-scale renovation. Small bathrooms are common, particularly in older homes, but they needn’t force homeowners to compromise on style when renovating. Small bathrooms may be a half-bath on a main home level or even a full bath, depending on the home. By thinking creatively, homeowners can maximize their spaces and redo bathrooms in ways that bring out their best assets. • When space is at a premium, it’s best to look for fixtures and items that fit with the scale of the bathroom. Although you may want a large vanity and cabinet in which to hide all of your toiletries, this simply may not be practical. Instead, look for elegant pedestal sinks that have a much smaller profile. They’ll also help you control the clutter in the bathroom because there won’t be anywhere to hide it. • Use optical illusions to make the bathroom appear more roomy. For example, lay tile diagonally to create the impression of space. A large mirror will reflect the room back and make it appear much larger than it really is. • Select lighter hues in paint colors and accessories. Dark paints and fixtures could make the room feel cramped. Dark colors are generally used to make spaces feel more cozy. In a small bathroom, it may make the space feel claustrophobic. Instead, think light and bright and the

Cruise aimed at reducing stray population By Michael J Brethour

STORE HOURS: Monday thru Sunday 8:OOam - 10:00pm


EMC News - Belleville Fancy cars at A&W helped to reduce the local stray pet population on Sunday. The inaugural Cruise for Fixed Fur Life at the A&W on Bell Boulevard generated several hundred dollars and awareness for the local charity. Kimberly Macdonald, vice president of Fixed Fur Life, said thanks to the Happy Days Car Show and A&W the first ever cruise for the charity took place. The first scheduled date for the event had to be cancelled because of rain and even last Sunday boiling clouds could be seen overhead, but the rain held off until the cruise day concluded at 3 p.m. “This is the day; the rain is holding off. We have been crossing our fingers all day,” said Macdonald. She noted the list of stray animals in need of spaying or neutering remains constant,

Happy Thanksgiving


as does the need for more foster homes for the growing network that supports the charity. “This event will generate a couple of hundred bucks, but also some awareness there is a need out there and we are making a difference in the stray population,” said Macdonald. Brian Rhodes, owner of the Bell Boulevard A&W, said next year the Fixed Fur Life charity will be at the top of the list for cruises. “This is the first interaction I have had with them. This is the last cruise of the

season. Next year we will cycle them into the first cruise,” said Rhodes. Over 13,100 cats and dogs have been spayed, neutered and vaccinated. The majority of these had one or two litters per year for the last three years and are now no longer producing. Over 4,000 pet owners who were about to surrender their pets to local shelters because of behavioural issues relating to their pets not being spayed or neutered changed their minds and kept their pets as issues resolved once the pet was fixed.

Council still saying “no” to solar farms By Richard Turtle

EMC News - Stirling Council remains unanimously opposed to a trio of proposed solar installations west of Spring Brook. Following a second delegation by SkyPower Global’s Charmaine Thompson at Monday night’s meeting of Stirling-Rawdon Council, members discussed the latest revelations in the company’s plan, which could include possible annual payments of as much as $200,000 to the municipality if all three projects reach full production, but still refused to support the idea. The proposed projects which, Thompson says, are subject to new Feed In Tariff (FIT) regulations remain very much in the preliminary stages but could result in construction of three ten megawatt installations south

of Spring Brook Road with two located on opposite sides of Gospel Road. Each would cost about $40 million, cover about 90 acres and be made up of thousands of tilted panels reaching two or three metres off the ground. Each would be surrounded by two-metre chain link fencing topped with a metre of barbed wire. Council had concerns about emergency services training as well as disposal and environmental and liability issues if an installation is for any reason abandoned, particularly at the end of a 25-year contract. But most troubling to many of them was the fact that the proposed sites, particularly on Gospel Road, are located on productive farmland. Mayor Rodney Cooney, and Councillors Grant Hagerman and Jeremy Solmes were leery of the idea

Apart from the above numbers, 3,400 cats and dogs were placed into loving new homes; these were from individuals who could no longer care for their pets. They were placed directly into new homes thus alleviating the stressful shelter environment. The next event for the charity is the fifth annual Fur Ball on November 3 at the Banquet Centre.

of planting solar panels there when the crops do so well. But while council agreed not to support the proposal, Hagerman noted provincial regulations could override any municipal objections. Council is, however, moving ahead with its Integrated Community Sustainability Plan (ICSP), a study that defines community assets and drawbacks, challenges and natural attractions as well as the needs and wants of residents and business operators. While Deputy-mayor Wilfred Shier voted against the motion on the basis that it was premature because the ICSP was never formally approved by the Economic Development Committee that commissioned it, council opted to move forward with the plan which has already included public meetings, consultations, fact gathering and feedback. The ICSP will be presented at a public information session on October 10 in the EOC Room at the emergency services building at 7 p.m. In response to a request from Hastings County Warden Rick Phillips regarding the redrawing of federal electoral boundaries, councillors agreed to support a proposal that would see Hastings County remain in a single riding along with the city of Belleville. The second option presented by Phillips was Hastings County, Belleville, Greater Napanee and Loyalist Township in Lennox and Addington. Proposed changes would see Hastings County divided into three ridings. Noting “a lot of people stepped up to the plate,” during the weekend Hockeyville celebrations to participate or contribute to the day’s events, Mayor Rodney Cooney says the end result was a big success thanks in part to the co-operation and extra effort shown by different groups and individuals involved.

Local Food survey talks to farmers about business By Kate Everson

EMC News - Quinte West Local farmers have given their input to a survey involving nine communities, 41 weeks and 170 volunteers, resulting in a compilation of 363 completed surveys. “It was a really positive experience,” said Trissia McAllister, Agriculture and Creative Economy Co-ordinator, Northumberland County. “We had one-on-one conversations about the agri-food business.” McAllister presented the survey results to the Agricultural Advisory Committee at city hall on September 27. She said the 187 questions in the survey took about two hours per interview. “It was really fun,” she said. “It was very grass roots.” The objective was to engage businesses that participate in the local food sector throughout Northumberland County, Quinte West, Belleville, Lennox and Addington, Prince Edward County, Frontenac County, Kawartha

Lakes, Peterborough and Hastings County. The total number of jobs involved in the agri-food business was 1,771 throughout the region. The city of Quinte West had 49 businesses on its list including four retail, two processors, four food and beverage, and 39 producers. The total number of surveys completed was 22. Not all the results were positive. To the question: “What is your general impression of this community as a place to do business?” (in Quinte West), seven rated it excellent, 11 said it was good, seven said fair and three called it poor. “Who said what?” demanded Mayor John Williams. “If we don’t know who said what we can’t change anything.” McAllister said the names were confidential. Linda Lisle, manager of economic development, said they could include further engagement with the businesses. McAllister agreed, “There is an opportunity to follow up

with them.” To the question: “Does the business have a succession plan?” eight said yes, but 18 said no. Ron Hamilton commented and said this is very important. “Who carries on?” he asked. Linda Lisle said there are very positive signs with all the businesses indicating no closings or barriers to future successions. McAllister noted there is a small food processing facility being set up in Cramahe Township that could be used by regional food producers for flash freezing or chilling of local fruit or vegetables. “This expands seasonality,”she said. Mayor Williams commented, “We need to make sure everybody knows about these opportunities.” There was a discussion about what was the best circulation newspaper that everyone in Quinte West could benefit from. Jim Alyea said where he lives in Murray ward he gets the EMC and the Brighton Independent but not the Trentonian or Community

Press. Gail Grills said she gets only the Intelligencer. One of the recommendations based on the survey was to work with the local Health Unit and develop a Farm Fresh Safety Book. McAllister said, “There has been a bit of hostility between the Health Unit and farm processors. We need to extend an olive branch.” She said if food inspectors come on the property, the processor can say he has followed all the rules in the guide book. “It is one of the most requested items for information,” she said. “The Health Unit wants to use it too. It is really working to facilitate relationships.” Ron Hamilton said he knows a couple of producers who were shut down for a couple of weeks by the Health Unit. “We need to strengthen relationships with the Health Unit,” he said. McAllister said the handbook they are developing is much easier to follow than the 30-page book the OMAFRA

(Ontario Ministry of Agriculture and Food) puts out. Williams commented this survey had a pile of information. “What is the cost?” McAllister said the total cost of the project was $90,000, half of it funded by

Northumberland County, none by Quinte West. Williams said that is a lot of money and he wanted to see an action plan coming out of it. Linda Lisle said they are working with Northumberland County on a strategy.

Clarke guitar winner drawn EMC News - Belleville The winner of Corey Clarke’s custom made guitar is known. The winning ballot was drawn last Wednesday evening for the guitar custom made by artisan Brian Walsh, who studied

under Master Luthier Seppo Valjakka of Frankenstein Guitar Works of Canada. Corey’s mother Cindy and his father John Clarke pulled the ballot last Wednesday evening at Quinte Secondary School in Belleville. The name pulled was

that of Linda Sheward who purchased the ballot at the Havelock Jamboree. Sheward was contacted via phone and the good news was shared with her. She exclaimed, “Oh my God! Really? I won?” Cindy explained the guitar will be presented formally later this month along with a cheque presentation to the Children’s Wish Foundation including the funds generated from the guitar raffle. The guitar signed two weeks ago by Canadian rock ’n’ roller David Wilcox and scheduled to be played by the Tragically Hip this week was estimated to have a value of $14,000 prior to the above events. Walsh, the guitar’s creator invested over 225 hours into the construction of the guitar; he didn’t even start until he hand picked the piece of wood for the body of the guitar. Walsh has built a ninestring Dobro for Colin James and has participated

in the construction of tailormade guitars for both Kim Mitchell and Ian Thomas. The Children’s Wish Foundation provided a fishing boat for Corey as his wish while he battled terminal cancer, the fund-raising initiatives of the Clarke family have been an effort to repay the peace given to their son in his final years.

Initiative puts Hastings County on tourism map By Richard Turtle

EMC News - Stirling - With the hopes of turning Hastings County into an international tourism destination, a group of local entrepreneurs and wellness providers are collectively marketing their products and services, offering numerous peaceful and invigorating holiday options. The wellness community officially launched the Hastings County Wellness tourism initiative last Thursday evening at the historic train station, providing about 70 guests with an outline of the

plan to attract visitors from well outside the region. Tweed Reeve Jo-Anne Albert welcomed the crowd on behalf of County Warden Rick Phillips and thanked the Hastings County Wellness Group for its collaborative efforts. Economic development and tourism officials were also on hand to explain more about the region’s attractions and diversity. Under the banner Rejuvenate in Hastings County Your Wellness Destination, officials also unveiled the accompanying logo which, says Tourism


Economic Development Manager Andrew Redden speaks at the recent launch of the Wellness Tourism Initiative in Stirling. Product and service providers have banded together to paint a healthy picture of Hastings County.

MILITARY VETERANS, SPOUSES AND FAMILY MEMBERS Mrs. Pat Boyle Veterans Service Officer from Ontario Command Royal Canadian Legion Will be visiting the Belleville Legion on Wednesday the 17 October 2012 commencing at 8am.

“Within our great county we have all anyone could ask for in the way of mind, body and spirit rejuvenation,” she says. Part of the plan, explains Enterprise Facilitator Darcelle Runciman, is to provide a single online location as well as a formal association where consumers can find information and select specific products and services for an individualized visit tailored to individual wants and needs. Local attractions, she says, include retreats, environmental organizations, art and culture, holistic practitioners and related special events and services in the areas of teaching and coaching or massage and other therapies. By gathering all those Hastings county providers together, Runciman notes, there is potential to create another Sedona, an Ari-

zona city known for its surrounding landscape and natural beauty, here in Ontario. And Pollard agrees, adding, “we’re the only group I know of right now working on a wellness initiative.” And according to figures presented during the launch, the wellness sector has jumped by more than one third in recent years in the United States and is continuing to grow. County Economic Development Manager Andrew Redden says the network created by local businesses offering complementary services or products provides a range of benefits for members and tourists alike. “It makes it easier to promote Hastings County when we have these types of initiatives,” he says. Presenters also outlined future plans including the upcoming Tourism Din-

ner and Awards Celebration on October 19, at Trudeau Park in Tweed and upcoming workshops. Following a sand ceremony, where individuals slowly layer sand from separate containers into a terrarium to create a new and unified landscape made up of several different elements, guests were treated to a musical performance by David R. Maracle and Felix Taylor and tables of food and refreshments.

EMC Entertainment Trenton - The 50th anniversary of the Trenton Citizens Band is being celebrated with a dinner and dance on October 27. “There will be displays, pictures and stories about the band from about 4 o’clock on,” said Bob Wannamaker at the recent council meeting. Wannamaker said they are hoping to attract former members of the band to the anniversary which includes a huge buffet and dancing to the Bay City Band. “We want everyone to come out and enjoy the fun,” he added. He encourages people to bring their own stories and pictures to share with others. The event is being held at the Knights of Columbus Hall in Trenton with dinner starting at 6 p.m. and costs $25 a person. “You can get tickets at the library, Frankford Home Hardware and Riverside Music,” he said. Phone inquiries are directed to 613-392-8548. Keith Reid commented that the Frankford library held a very successful din-

ner auction in Batawa last weekend with a grand total of $11,000 raised for the library furnishings. Fire chief John Whelan noted that Fire Prevention Week will be held on October 7 to 13 with the theme “Have 2 Ways Out.” There will be free Domino’s pizza with that slogan offered at Station 1 and 7 (Frankford) on October 13 from 1 to 3 p.m. A report from manager of facilities Danny Young got approval from council to put in accessibility funding in the 2013 budget for improvements to city hall, Batawa Community Centre, Duncan MacDonald arena and Dr. McMullen arena up to $48,750. It is hoped the Enabling Accessibility Fund will help with funding for these projects. He noted the city applied last year but did not succeed. The Fund provides grants up to $50,000. Council also endorsed a request from the municipality of Central Huron to transfer responsibility of funding school crossing guards to the Ministry of Education. The city will pay $332,500 to crossing guards for 2013 in-


cluding salaries and benefits. Council had a moment of silence and offered condolences to the family of former staff member Carolin Beszterczey who died September 24 af-

ter working for the planning department for six months. Mayor John Williams also offered condolences to the family of former Belleville Mayor George Zegouras.

Hockeyville celebrates 2012 title in style By Richard Turtle

Hastings County Queen of the Furrow Brianna Dracup was among the officials on hand for Stirling-Rawdon’s official crowning as Kraft Hockeyville 2012.

eral of those in attendance had been there since early morning. For Manley, who led a pair of figure skating clinics prior to the parade, her arrival at the Stirling arena was a homecoming of sorts. Born in Belleville and raised in Trenton, Manley now lives in the Ottawa area and is well familiar with the Quinte region. “I love coming back,” she says, adding there are plenty of family and skating memories in this part of the province. And Manley was taken by surprise when a face from the past offered a greeting in the arena lobby. Sandy Chadwick was teaching the CanSkate program when she encountered

with numerous groups and individuals benefiting from the Hockeyville campaign. Along with a Kraft donation to the arena for $100,000 and the Stirling-Rawdon Community Cupboard for $10,000, Brandt says there were plenty of other winners along the way. “We collected 25,000 tires and that helped send 80 kids to Disneyland,” she notes. Hewitt says the Hockeyville competition is one way for Kraft to support community projects. “It’s always been a priority [for Kraft] to give back to the community,” he says, “and feeding the families of Hockeyville is important.” Food banks, he adds, are seeing increased numbers and have always been a part of the Hockeyville equation. The $10,000 graciously received by Community Cupboard Chair Heather Bailey, is the largest single donation in the history of the local food bank and, Bailey says, will go a long way toward stocking the shelves. And there were plenty of Kraft products available for sampling throughout the afternoon as well. And sev-


EMC News - Stirling - The morning started with figure skating clinics by Olympic silver medallist Elizabeth Manley and later included a Stanley Cup parade, autograph sessions with former NHLers and a host of free activities and games to mark Stirling-Rawdon’s claim to Kraft Hockeyville 2012. And while the clouds threatened overhead, organizers were thrilled with the weather and the convenient timing as the rains began to fall only after the outdoor party was over. It was shortly before 11:30 a.m. that the Stanley Cup arrived in town and made its trip along the parade route with plenty of accompaniment. Led by the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 228 colour guard, the parade kicked off with the highly polished Preston Scout House Alumni Band and featured floats and participants, many dressed in yellow and blue for the celebratory occasion. The Stirling Citizens Band also offered musical support as residents lined Front Street for the parade with more than 1,000 people arriving at the arena parking lot behind the Stanley Cup. A flatbed trailer stage was set up at the rink entrance and the parking lot became a miniature fairgrounds with bouncy castles, a climbing wall and live music provided by the Preston Scout House Alumni Band, Wrought Iron Roots and The Brogees. The Stanley Cup drew hundreds of curious hockey fans as waiting crowds snaked through barriers before getting an opportunity to be photographed with hockey’s most famous trophy. Kraft officials were also on hand throughout the day offering congratulations to its 2012 Hockeyville winners and presenting cheques for a total of $110,000 to the community. Kraft Canada Vice President Jack Hewitt addressed the crowd and introduced the Local Organizing Committee, congratulating them for their monumental efforts and amassing nearly 4,000,000 votes from their supporters. Hewitt also discussed the importance of a community figure like Barry Wilson, who passed away prior to the Hockeyville campaign but remained a primary force behind plans for arena improvements. Committee Chair Cindy Brandt says the whole experience has been a matter of paying it forward,





Ameliasburgh Township Fair a country fair with flair By Kate Everson

EMC News - Ameliasburgh - Roblin Lake Fairgrounds was filled with good old-fashioned country fun on the weekend of September 29 and 30. “We were told to dress like farmers,” said Sherri Bergman in her baggy pants and plaid shirt. The fair started with a bicycle decorating contest at Kente Public School, then participants joined the parade along Main Street to the fairgrounds. There were fancy dressed horses, old tractors, marching bands with the 413 Wing Pipes and Drums and the RCSCC Quinte Sea Cadets, along with the Shriners on their camels, screaming fire trucks, and lots of pretty ladies, laughing children, drooling dogs and friendly farmers on floats piled high with hay and seasonal colours. A slo-pitch softball tournament continued from Friday night slugging it out in the adjacent ball diamond by the lake. The official opening featured Rick Kevan and Jessica Bell singing O Cana-

da. When it was time for lunch, the Masonic Lodge offered a chicken barbeque and there were plenty of concession stands with hamburgers, dogs and fries as well as home baked pies and preserves put on by the Storehouse Food Bank, Albury Women’s Group, Ameliasburgh Firefighters Association and Rednersville Women’s Institute. Crazy Zen Carter did a little Zumba while lawnmower pulls, crafts and arts shows along with OPP car-rolling demonstration kept people entertained. The King and Queen of the ‘50s and ‘60s were crowned on stage and there was a livestock show, a Johnny Cash impersonator and even Elvis showed up. Re-enactors took over the nearby Ameliasburgh Museum and showed what it was like to live in early pioneer times. Breakfast at the

tea room was followed by a horse show on Sunday. A petting zoo by Jenn Ackerman had goats, sheep and big-eyed Jerseys along with perky Silky Bantams. Shae Lynn Bell from Double Knot Polled Herefords fluffed up her big beasts with ease and a blow dryer, just for the show. There was an infant parade, a crafts and flower show, dog and cat show on stage and a silent auction followed by Flashback on stage. After closing ceremonies on Sunday, it was time to close up for another year.

Aunt Ada’s Closet is seriously silly lifelong love of words, music and colour. Part of that was expressed in her career, which included working as an educational assistant in the Stirling schools after moving to the area from

Bancroft, but she admits she has always craved an expressive artistic outlet. Fashion is another passion. And while she might not have a predetermined plan when she sets out to create a new piece, Hall starts with an idea and lets her instincts do the rest. A retired educational assistant, she is currently holding her first public showing at the StirlingRawdon Public Library art gallery and, she says, it is the encouragement of family and friends that has brought her work out of her rather private studio. And the multimedia cartoon-like portraits present a kooky and eccentric range of oddly familiar characters, perhaps strangely like someone’s great aunt. Hall admits the name for the collection of untitled works, Aunt Ada’s Closet, came after the fact but seemingly for good reason. Hall hadn’t considered a title prior to putting the collection together but once it was assembled, the body of work became distinctly reminiscent of something. And she remembered her great aunt Ada, a lover of clothes and hats and with a particular flair for fashion and accessories. “And I was looking at them and I thought, those are certainly things she would wear,” Hall says. The pictures are painted,

EMC News - Stirling - A recent visit to the StirlingRawdon Public Library by Brighton author Lee Mellor left a bit of a chill. The library hosted session introduced the author of Cold North Killers: Canadian Serial Murder, Lee Mellor to a small crowd at the Community Hall above the Stirling Festival Theatre on Thursday. And his talk left quite an impression. The assembled crowd listened as Mellor offered a glimpse into the process of writing, including how your direction can change. While writing a crime novel in 2009, he began researching the history of serial killers in Canada. Surprised to find that there were more than 70 on the books, he decided to write an account of them on realizing the average Canadian would be unaware of most, despite the numbers in Canadian history. Coincidentally, while he was researching for his book and residing in Brighton, Ontario, the Russell Williams case also began. It struck close to home for Mellor and he felt that in all good conscience Williams should be included in his book. The crowd was given a fascinating look

Sometimes it means everything, she admits, and sometimes it means almost nothing. But that is up to an individual’s interpretation, she says, so sometimes that small suggestion in an otherwise wordless image can strike a chord. Or maybe there was a subconscious reason for putting it there in the first place. But Hall isn’t about to question her own creativity. “To be honest I find it therapeutic,” she says of creating and enjoying art, whether sculpture, painting, writing or music. And in her studio, where she prefers to be left to her own devices, the music is almost always playing. “I get lost in the process of art,” she says, noting it can be an escape from daily stresses. And Hall says that can come easy in a room full of colour and light and fabric and lace and doilies, perhaps where someone like Aunt Ada could have a field day. She began by making cards for family members on special occasions, and the cards are still available in selected locations but the encouragement Hall received led to an expansion of the

Madoc Motocross season wraps up

A whole lot of hockey for the Novice AE Bulls

EMC Sports - The Belleville Hyundai Novice AE Junior Bulls played three games in three days this past weekend. Belleville was host to Stirling Friday night to finish our home and home exhibition games. Although it was a close game, they came away on the wrong end of a 3 - 2 game. Ryley Muir got the first goal during the second period assisted by Carter Seymour. Liam Reid was the goal scorer for the third period with Jacob Gilham and Aaron Brown

backing him up on the assists. Starting the season out right at our first regular season game, the Belleville Hyundai Novice AE Jr. Bulls travelled to Whitby on Saturday and drove home with a 3 - 1 victory. Goals were scored by Jonathon Doyle, Joey Coates and Liam Reid with the assists going to Aaron Brown, Doyle and Coates. Netminder Cassidy Dobson played an excellent first regular season game. Sunday, the Bulls hosted

their first regular season home game, coming away with a 2 - 0 win over Uxbridge. Skilled goaltending from Cassidy Dobson earned her the first shutout of the season. The first goal was made by Jonathon Doyle with Ryley Muir earning the assist while Joey Coates received the unassisted second goal of the game. The team travels to Aurora for the first tournament of the season this coming weekend.

EMC Sports - The International Truckload Services Novice AA Junior Bulls keep on trucking early this season as they racked up another two wins this past weekend taking their winning streak to 11 games. The Bulls manhandled the defending league champs in Whitby Saturday with an 11 - 4 victory and then followed up Sunday with another “W”

over visiting Oshawa 8 1. Brady Spry and Jacoby Martin split both victories in the cage for the Bulls while tallies in the Whitby game went to Trevor Hoskin (3), Corbin Roach (3), Cooper Matthews (2), Nathan Woods (2) and Reed Anderson. Picking up assists were Marcus Asimis (2), Woods, Roach, Hoskin, Anderson, Ethan Geen and Jack Prophet.

In the Oshawa game goals went to Roach (2), Hoskin (2), Carter Lee, Asimis, Anderson and Prophet with assists going to Woods (2), Hoskin (2), Rheydon McCoy, Donovan McCoy, Asimis and Prophet. The Junior Bulls next action is a home contest versus Peterborough next Sunday 12:15 at Quinte Health and Wellness Centre Rink A.

Belleville EMC - Thursday, October 4, 2012



EMC Sports - The Free Flow Petroleum Atoms played Kingston in their second game of the season and collected another two points as they outskated and outplayed their opponents from the east. Quinte dominated Kingston and found the back of the net twice as they coasted to a 2 - 1 win. With stellar defence, penalty killing, forechecking and solid goaltending, the complete team game proved to be too much for Kingston to play with Quinte. Scoring for the Red Devils were Jacob Vreugdenhil and Adam Thistlethwaite. The lone assist came from Maddy Wheeler. In net was Ethan Mcdonnell who had to make several key stops to keep his team on top. Next action is on Sunday against the powerhouse from York Simcoe. Minor Peewee The Alarm Systems Minor Peewees won their third game of the season with a 1 0 victory over Kingston. The only goal went to Brayden Adams, assisted by Cameron Supryka and Jake Campbell. The shutout went to Ty Everden in his first game of the season. On Saturday, they defeated York-Simcoe 6 - 0. Goals were scored by Elijah Brahaney (3), Jacob Campbell (2), and Daniel Panetta. Assists went to Dalton Bancroft (3) Jacob Campbell (2), Landon McLellan (2), Daniel Panetta, Connor Kennedy and Elijah Brahaney. Ethan Taylor and Ty Everden split the game for the shutout. On Sunday the team suffered a 4 - 1 loss to Whitby. Quinte’s only goal was scored by Keegan Hunt and assisted by Dalton Bancroft and Nate MacAusland. Ethan Taylor played a solid game in net.

Alumni game offers memorable moments By Richard Turtle

EMC News - Stirling - With Don Cherry and Ron MacLean featured on the guest list at the local rink, it was a day of epic proportions. Hockeyville volunteers ended their weekend of celebrations as guests of an NHL alumni game Sunday night and there was plenty to cheer about as Team Stirling faced Team Rawdon in a two-period showdown. And under the guidance of the coaching duo of Stirling-Rawdon Councillor Grant Hagerman and Kraft VP Jack Hewitt it was the Rawdon squad that toppled Stirling, coached by Stirling-Rawdon Mayor Rodney Cooney and former NHL coach and broadcaster Harry Neale. But it really was all in fun. Opening ceremonies included player introductions, the singing of the national anthem by Emily Workman, and the presentation of a $100,000 cheque from Kraft Canada for the community’s record-setting finish in the annual campaign. A ceremonial puck drop by former Stirling players Jim Wright and Ray Darrah also paid tribute to a pair of the local hockey association’s most

enduring supporters as they dropped the puck between captains Rob Ray and Dino Bianco. Wright is the first of four generations to play Stirling hockey while Darrah continues to make regular trips to the rink as a spectator. Included on the Stirling roster with captain Ray were ex-NHLers Jamie Allison, Laurie Boschman, Danny Gare, Brad May, Andrew Peters and PJ Stock, with Stirling teen Mike Brogee between the pipes. Team Rawdon included former Leafs Dan Daoust, Bill Derlago, Tom Fergus, Mike Johnson, Kevin Maguire, Brad Marsh and Jack Valliquette, with Curtis Brandt in the net. About 600 people crowded the rink for the game where local skaters Rob Ray, Mark Dobson and Steve Bancroft were among the goal scorers and some hand-picked talent got an evening to remember. Cooney and Hagerman admit it was hard not to get excited about the game and the community’s Hockeyville win while goaltenders Brogee and Brandt have a new hockey story to tell.

“In the dressing room,” said a wide-eyed Brogee, “I’m sitting beside Ron MacLean.” And for Brandt it was an equally memorable tilt involving more than a few

hard shots and several runins with his uncle Rob, who did manage to get one past the young stopper before the final buzzer sounded. Stirling stick boys includ-

ed Josh Hodge, Brock Badgley and Ethan Thompson, with the Rawdon contingent made up of Connor Hodge, Brayden Badgley and Owen Thompson.

Hop to feature 13 artists and several galleries The creativity is palpable in the paintings, sculpture, folk art, glass, wood, jewellery, textiles and photography, all within a ten-minute hop of each other. At Frantic Farms glass blower Paulus Tjiang has spent more time in the glass studio and less time on construction projects for their building in the village. Practical is “in.” He has developed an exciting new line of stemware, fun, elegant, and functional. Better than any commercially made drinkware

on this planet! Come by and find out why! Tjiang’s glass studio on Old Wooler Road will be open this year and he will be demonstrating his glass blowing technique. He will have a selection of glass work, and education displays, available there as well. Potter Monica Johnston will be showing a new selection of wood-fired pottery. This very traditional and dynamic method of firing pots yields deep earthy colours. She will be demonstrating

on the wheel and visitors are invited to try their hand at making a pot on the wheel, perhaps even win a $100 gift certificate by duplicating a piece thrown on the wheel by the potter herself. The gallery hop’s guest artist this year is sculptor Paul Portelli. He will be showing his Terra Cotta masks, animal sculptures, figurative work and other whimsies including his new all weather outdoor pieces for the garden. Kim McNeil at Eclectic Mix will be featuring work

by over 65 regional artists. She also welcomes back guest jewellery artist Elaine Wigle. Gundi Viviani–Finch’s studio is nestled on a hilltop overlooking the surrounding fields, forest, marsh, and creek providing much of the inspiration for her flowing sculptures, in particular the intense cold, bright light, snow and ice formations of the Canadian winter. Cheeky Bee has been making 100 per cent beeswax candles for ten years. Now with the opening of

their gallery on Main they feature many whimsical crafts and art. During this Hop the featured artist is painter Jilleen Jones whose exotic, handcrafted jewellery is both nature and vintage-inspired.  At Pine Grove Studio, Sheree Rasmussen and Clive Russell are only a short Hop south of the village.  Rasmussen is a textile artist, and Russell a painter and architect; together they are award-winning landscape designers.  As well they are featuring guest artists Lenni Workman from Warkworth and Simon Schneiderman from Grafton. At this year’s Hop the Grannies for Africa will be hosting their sale of preloved vintage and costume jewellery on Saturday, October 13, at the Warkworth Town Hall Centre for the Arts, 40 Main Street, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. They will also feature lunch at their café, a pantry table and a white elephant sale.  For more info on their sale call 705-924-9447.

At the farm we learned that the babies were always born during the daytime. We also learned that the Alpacas were sheared once a year and their fleece was sold as raw fleece to spinners or weavers in the local and Ottawa area. The spinners and weavers process the fleece into yarn which they make hats, mitts and socks. A great learning experience was had by all. The Sixth meeting was held at Rebecca Stockdale’s family Holstein dairy farm in Peterborough, where we toured the farm and milked the cows. The most favorite part was the taste testing Kawartha ice

cream. For our Achievement Day the Animal Friends Club was the Hosting Club for the Madoc Fair Petting Zoo where we had, water buffalo, miniature horses, alpacas, a pony, beef calves, chickens, rabbits, sulkies, ferrets, goats, kittens, gold fish races and face painting. The Animal Friends Club had the opportunity to go to the Toronto Zoo where we went back stage to see the Giraffes and the Indian Rhinoceros where we got to see them up close and pat them. Their keepers told us how they gave birth, how and what they ate. After that we got to explore all the amazing animals that are at the Zoo. It was a great day

Academia Nuts laugh-out-loud funny By Ray Yurkowski

EMC Entertainment Brighton - The Barn theatre production of Academia Nuts got off to a rocky start on opening night last weekend. Lots of gaffs and a little light on the laughs. Seemingly though, the four-person cast regrouped during the intermission of the two-act play and came out determined to turn it around. And it worked. There were some good laugh-out-loud moments in the final act. “That’s what they have to do for the whole show and I think, now, they understand this,” said director Kathy Lacasse. “You never know how a cast will react to an audience and performing. “Myself, I’m more nervous for dress rehearsal than opening night and the rest of the performances. But there are nights when one’s timing just seems to go out the window and you can’t get it back. The more you try, the worse it gets.” The second performance, on Saturday night, was more like it she added. “The jitters were gone and the actors were smooth and quick with their lines,” she said. “It was so much better. I’m sure the cast felt better and so did the audience. Whew, what a relief!” Academia Nuts is a small cast, one set and a simple

plot. Through the dialogue, the two women in the cast reveal one—Linda Sacchett as Tammi—is dealing with legal problems and car trouble while the other—Pat Dunn as Judith—is waiting to talk to her idol, Professor Peter Smedforson. Jeff Van de Kleut, a law-

yer in real life, is Professor Smedforson. Envision a young professor who has devoted his life to the study of a single poet and now lives in that poet’s house. The person you conjured is Van de Kleut. Colin Griffiths, as Stewart, comes up with a scheme to find a lost manuscript

and, thanks to the ensuing hunt; they discover the secret of one of America’s great poets. But Sacchett steals the show. A veteran of five Barn productions, she plays her role as a topless entertainer named Tammi to the hilt. Comedy is her favourite and it shows. “Life is too serious,” she says. “You have to laugh.” What attracted her to the production was the character, “very spontaneous, mixing with people who aren’t.” “I have to pretend I fit right in,” she said with a laugh. Although, Sacchett says this may be her last role on the stage, opting for a more comfortable seat in the director’s chair. And she’s already had a taste in another Barn production where she won the coveted “Barney” award for the one-act play. “I’m getting older,” she said. “It’s getting harder to keep the lines up here. It would be easier to see other people stumble on.” Need a good laugh? Performances of Academia Nuts are evenings at 8 p.m. on October 4, 5, 6, 11, 12, 13 and a matinee at 2 p.m. on October 14 at the Barn Theatre in Brighton.

EMC Entertainment Trenton - The Trent Port Historical Society will present The Dazzlebugs, commemorating Hollywood North (1917-1934), the silent movie industry in Trenton. The fabulous new show will take place on Saturday, November 10, at 8 p.m. in the newly decorated theatre of Trenton Town Hall - 1861, 55 King Street, Trenton. The Dazzlebugs is a collaboration featuring Jeanette Arsenault and Fraser Hardman. Both share a passion for the familiar standards and Tin Pan Alley hits of the early 1900s. Jeanette and Fraser are seasoned entertainers in their own rights, as accomplished vocalists and musicians. They perform primarily as a duo, joined on occasion by various friends and accompanists. Jeannette Arsenault’s roots are Acadian, explaining her great passion for music. She has released six solo albums to date and is currently in the studio working on several recording projects. Her performances have taken her to Salt Lake City, USA, and Athens, Greece, where she sang for the Canadian Olympic athletes. Recently she travelled to Helsinki, Finland, where she sang for an international women’s organization. Her bucket list has always included a desire to

The Good Earth: EMC Lifestyles - Although we know this event is inevitable I can think of only one good immediate outcome. There is a new breed of mosquito out there that can only be termed as “fanatically aggressive.” Wee things that barely flicker across the periphery of vision, they dash straight to the chase and attempt to rip out fair chunks of dermis Clostis. Hopefully, this nip in the air will put an end to these nips to the skin. The first hard frost brings with it the psychological end of summer. Until now we’ve enjoyed what has been aptly termed “last of the summer wine.” Deep memories of winters past forefend that which is to come; they urge us out of our summer lethargies and we find our-

selves rushing rush to and fro our estates trying to put the garden to bed. We can’t help ourselves. Every gardening magazine, newspaper column, radio host and television show covers this topic in depth and almost ad nauseam. We are overwhelmed by this onslaught and we “lemming” ourselves to the garden centres. We stuff carts full of squirrel food (a.k.a. tulip bulbs), rabbit food (a.k.a. season ending sale shrubs), skunk magnets (a.k.a. blood meal - see squirrel food) and bone meal (a.k.a. a handful wouldn’t hurt). Now then, G.R., I know you are not included in that maddening crowd because you have a garden work plan. You made a note of what work needed to be

Reality Check:

Sheila Wray Gregoire EMC Lifestyles - This Thanksgiving, as families crowd around the table fighting for more of Grandma’s turkey and gravy, let’s take some time to remember the things we have to be grateful for. As for me, I’m grateful for this extraordinarily odd life we share. Think about it this way: everyone reading this column is richer than Henry VIII. King of England in the 1500s, he was wealthier than anyone else of his time. But he did not have Advil. Or central heating. Or hot showers, or antibiotics, or even anesthetic. And anesthetic is good. Very, very good. He may have had a myriad of people waiting

on him hand and foot, but he didn’t have many of the things we take for granted. But it’s not just because we live in 2012 that we have these luxuries. It’s also because we live in Canada. After travelling in Africa and even southern Europe, I am very grateful for our wide, clean, paved roads. I love our big supermarkets. I love our freedoms. We have it good. And as the clock is ticking ever more loudly counting down the time I still have with my daughters at home, I’m very grateful for the memories we’ve made. It’s so easy in the busy-ness of life to forget that the wonderful chaos we share now will not always be there. One day the house will be quiet, the fridge will stay full, and the living room will stay much neater. As my daughters grow older, I’m starting to appreciate the chaos all the more. Speaking of family, I’m thankful for second chances. Even when we face disappointments in life, and people betray or abandon us, that pain does not have to taint the rest of our lives. A little love, a little commitment, and a little dose of selflessness can create a rock solid family bond, no matter

done, found a time frame within which to accomplish each task, and you followed through. Your work now is no more strenuous than it was a month ago because you have it under control. (At least it will be next year, right?) So these to-do tasks are only reminders for you. For the rest of the folks who are not Gentle Readers, now’s the time to put the garden to bed! If it’s not too late snip off some cuttings of your annuals; transplant favourite geraniums to be used as mother plants, collect seeds as they ripen, divide and transplant perennials (remember to read the plant’s bio), add triple-mix, compost, manure etc. to the top of the beds.

My pet peeve is folks who collect grass and leaves and toss them out on the curb for pickup. This is valuable carbon essential to the health of your estate’s ecosystem. Start a compost pile. By the way, if you have a compost bin, now’s the time to empty it out. Don’t worry if some bits aren’t quite finished. Spread this bounty over the vegetable patch. Undone large bits can be raked up and returned to the bin. Temperature changes, precipitation, worms and other wee critters will reduce the organic matter to digested humus by spring snow-melt. Now that you have an empty compost bin, fill it up with tomato vines, dahlia stems etc. If you can, make a leaf pile, only leaves.

Preferably this will be in a place that will receive sun and a bit of wind. You might want to lay a sheet of plastic over top of the pile. The plan is to create leaf mould, desiccated or dried bits of leaves that will greatly reduce your reliance on peat moss. Some fruits and vegetables benefit from a frost. Parsnips and turnips are two of the tastier root crops. Hard apples such as Northern Spy, Delicious, and Ida Red etc. wait for this cold to trigger “ripening.” A layer of cells in the stem die preventing movement of nutrients from the apple. Conversion of starch to sugar begins and, in the case of these apples, it may take up to two months. Buy some of these varieties from your local orchard or farmers’ mar-

Dan Clost ket and store them in a cool dry place away from onions and potatoes. In January, retrieve a few and enjoy their sweetness. Compare our homegrown and home stored produce with those starchy cardboard imports. It is time to put the gardens to bed, but relax and take time to enjoy the last of the summer wine.

Why I’m thankful where you came from. I’m grateful that despite the ugliness and violence and depravity we see on the news and on reality shows, the vast majority of people actually tend to do the right thing. Sure Jersey Shore may make it look like the younger generation has lost all moral grounding, and the riots in the Middle East make the future look grim, but on the whole, in small, day-to-day decisions, people tend to choose well. It’s actually quite amazing. I’m grateful to live in a small town, where I can’t go to the grocery store without running into someone I know. Some find that stifling; I find it comforting. After growing up in Toronto and feeling insignificant, I finally have a home. I’m grateful for my left knee. I complain to no end about my right knee, which seems intent on driving me to an early date with a surgeon. But every time my right knee acts up, it reminds me that my left knee is perfectly lovely, thank you very much. So are my hips, and my elbows, and my shoulders. And as I hit my forties and my eyes start to squint whenever a medicine bottle comes near,

I’m grateful that they’re also compensating by helping me see distances better. Aging is not all bad. I’m grateful for hair dye. There is nothing quite as

fun to a woman as changing the colour of her hair to match her mood. Or the seasons. Or just a whim. I’m grateful for friends who keep me grounded, for

a husband who keeps me feeling secure, and for kids who keep me laughing. And I’m grateful for a holiday to remind us of all of these things.

Nine-year-old’s bottle drive honours best friend van filled with empty bottles that had been donated that weekend. “Ehlana’s initial goal was to raise $1,000 for the Foundation,” said her mom. “She’s raised $4,378.86 and there’s still money coming in,” she added. The family will be returning for their final getaway of the summer this Thanksgiving weekend and are hoping the donations will keep coming. Bob and Carole-Ann Hayes, owners of the resort, fully support what young Ehlana is doing noting her decision to raise money on behalf of her friend, “is worthy, and deserving of recognition for a very selfless and compassionate idea.” The Hayes explained that Ehlana asked the people in the resort to donate their empties at the close of the weekends and she walks around the park with her wagon to gather them all. “Virtually all who see her bring out their empties for

Let’s get together and show our support for Ehlana and Samantha and donate your empties today,” states Lanetta on the Facebook group page (bottle drive 2012). Their appeal has been heard, so much so that the James have been kept very busy unloading empties time and time again. “My husband and I we would like to thank the

Campbellford Beer Store for all their co-operation with this project as it grew bigger than we had initially thought and their kindness and enthusiasm was a great support to both girls. They have encouraged many patrons to add their empties to my daughter’s collection helping her boost her total,” Lanetta told EMC. “We would also like to thank the friends we have made at Fisherman’s Paradise Resort where all participated generously in contributing their empties in support of the two girls. Without their encouragement Ehlana’s drive would not have been such a great success.” Momentum for the fund raiser continues with support from businesses in the Waterloo and Hamilton area with their own bottles drives as employees are encouraged to donate their empties. The response has been overwhelming, especially for young Samantha’s family. Perhaps her mom Lisa said it best: “She [Samantha] is in the fight of her life and has the wonderful and loving support of so many family and friends. The most

EMC News - Campbellford - Ehlana James lives in Kitchener and Samantha Carvalho lives in Hamilton. They are both nine years old and they are best friends. This summer Ehlana decided to do something to honour and support her friend who was diagnosed with a brain tumour just over two years ago and is currently undergoing treatment. She decided to hold a can and bottle drive at the resort where she and her family holiday during the summer months. The bottle drive is to raise money for the Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada.

A five-year deal with a major publisher will see two books printed each year. This is the first solo show for the former hockey broadcaster turned artist. And, despite venturing into a new venue at 70 years of age, he has become quite prolific and highly skilled in producing both hockeythemed art and landscapes. “I’m kind of surprised to find myself reaching that level where people might be interested in purchasing,” he said. “I sold a few at a show in Aurora last winter; it was a pleasant experience.” The show will feature about 50 to 60 paintings, Please see “Hockey” on page B9

Local Liberals praise Rae’s efforts EMC News - Belleville - It is time to decriminalize marijuana, Interim Federal Liberal Leader Bob Rae suggested in Belleville’s downtown Capers Thursday evening. His stance was in reply to a question and comment from an audience member who contended “the war on drugs is the elephant in the room.” Rae allowed that there are many considerations, but essentially, addictions are “mental and medical health issues—not political,” and “no society has ever incarcerated itself into safety and security. Booze and cigarettes are the two most dangerous drugs,” he said. In interviews with the news media, Rae agreed he won’t be leader after the party’s leadership convention in April, but he expects to remain as an MP in the party and give whatever assistance he can. And after many years and many roles in both provincial and federal politics, “I still think it is fun,” he said, referring especially to meeting and talking to Canadians from coast to coast. He also refreshed the audience of about 160 that even though the party suffered its worst defeat in the

2011 election “since 1840,” the phones were ringing the next day offering support. “We have added about 25,000 members, there are no outstanding bills and we have money in the bank, but we need a lot more to fight the next election,” he said. Rae said he believes the Liberal party continues to best represent the ordinary Canadian who wants a choice “between two extremes,” suggesting both the Conservatives and the NDP tend to make “simplistic” decisions based on political dogma, rather than genuine understanding of the people’s needs. He drew a burst of applause with his statement that the “the bottom is not dropping out of the economy; it is the middle that is dropping out,” stressing that government must restore the former power and influence of the middle class to achieve prosperity. Rae concluded with cautionary thoughts that Canadians cannot take “sustainability” for granted, nor democracy, nor even the nation, referring to recent moves and proclamations by the new separatist government in Quebec. He said he supported the defeat of a motion about

abortion in the House of Commons earlier in the week and had concerns about the hard core of Conservative MPs who are apparently opposed to women’s choice. He then suggested the same hard core might seek to bring back capital punishment. Another issue raised was the proposed takeover of Canada’s oil sands and energy company, Nexen. Rae made it clear he has no problem doing business with China as long as there are common sense controls and reciprocity. “It’s pointless to worry about a Chinese company taking over two per cent of our oil sands when United States corporations own 70 per cent,” he said. Rae was formally welcomed by Mayor Neil Ellis who quipped: “My job is tough some days, … but I wouldn’t want yours.” Rae was introduced by Peter Tinsley, standard bearer for the riding in the last election, who noted representation from neighbouring ridings at the meeting. He also commented on the possibility of Justin Trudeau running for the leadership. “My main concern is that we have the choice of all the best possible talent there is

… and the fact that Bob Rae will not run is a loss.”

Rae’s visit was part of a series of lectures the local

federal riding association began last fall.

History can be a gold mine says producer

EMC News - Belleville History sells, affirms Picton film producer Peter Lockyer, who announced his intentions Saturday to turn his History Lives Here short history clips into an expanding business across Ontario. He was introducing his fourth series of two-minute vignettes based on local heritage sites, historical personalities and events, made in conjunction with the Kiwanis Club of Belleville which is now selling the DVDs for a fund raiser following a pre-screening in The Empire Theatre Saturday evening. To illustrate his plan, Lockyer pointed to the small town of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, site of the famous U.S. Civil War battle which cost 50,000 lives and inspired President Abraham Lincoln’s famous “Gettysburg Address,” which, at two minutes in length, is the same as Lockyer’s film vignettes. With a population of little more than 5,000, Gettysburg has parlayed its historic connection into a multi-million historybased industry employing more than 5,000 people, he said. History and heritage could be equally profitable for the Quinte area, he contended, bemoaning the continuing loss of heritage buildings, especially in

Picton and Prince Edward County, which included Sir John A. Macdonald’s original law office, demolished in the 1960s. It’s a good thing the pyramids are in Egypt and not in Prince Edward County, he quipped, otherwise they, too, would probably be destroyed. “If you tear down all the special places in your community, what, then, is special about it?” he asked. Many historic buildings and sites remain at risk, he said, suggesting that if the area wants to capitalize on history as Gettysburg has, efforts must start to preserve it. The 12-topic series screened for the audience is his fourth such series and “We’ll never run out of material,” he said, anticipating more series.  He’s also dealing with other communities across Ontario for similar projects. The shorts are being used as add-ons for regular motion picture show-

His goal, he said, is to “create a new industry from an old asset.” Long-time Kiwanian and past district lieutenant-governor Marj Buck was lead contact for the club in arranging and promoting the History Lives Here deal with Lockyer. “And we’re going to do it again next year,” she announced in the theatre.

Anthology writers in literary spotlight

“It is a collage of voice from writers who either still or at some point shared this place, this soil,” says Kauffman. The call for submissions received “a tremendous generosity of both heart and spirit,” he says. What it has produced is a 300-page anthology featuring 120 authors. “The pulse of Lake Ontario’s north shore is felt on every page,” says Norwood writer Ursula Pflug who helps organize Cat Sass literary nights. “Mimicking the historic and contemporary landscape, the pendulum swings from seasoned bards to freshly scratched voices worthy of an undivided eye,” she says. “When it came to selecting the pieces he went with his poignant poetic instincts

and chose the best,” writer Ashleigh Gehl adds. “I wanted it to be broad,” Kauffman says. “It was nice to get the bigger names in and the fact that they were interested in being a part of the book but it wasn’t geared toward that. It’s just a wonderful collection of poetry with a bit of short prose thrown in that covers any range of emotions. Perspectives of a time the writers had spent in this area.” Local writers like Pflug, Leanne Simpson, Lucy Barnett, Ruth Clarke, Kelly Pflug-Back and Tapanga Koe are included in the book. “Bruce has been wonderful to work with and it’s really turned out to be a beautiful book,” says Pflug. All royalties from postrelease book sales will go to The Al Purdy A-Frame Trust, with the long-term

Planning for a big 25th anniversary plowing match EMC News - Quinte West The 25th anniversary of the Hastings County Plowing Match will be back to its original site in Quinte West. “We will be setting up just south of the fairgrounds in Stirling,” said George

Sandercock at the Agricultural Advisory Committee meeting at city hall recently. “That is the original site.” Sandercock wanted to know if the city would waive any permits for tents. Jim Alyea moved they waive the fee. Sandercock said that will allow them to move forward

and get on with plans “or it will cost too much money.” Director of Planning Charlie Murphy said it costs “$100 a pop” to set up a tent. Ron Hamilton asked if they needed culverts put in.

Thanksgiving weekend is no time to forget water safety

EMC News - Thanksgiving weekend is a perfect time for one last boat or canoe ride before winter sets in, but it’s no time to let your guard down when it comes to water safety. Ontario Power Generation and Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) are reminding people to stay clear of all hydroelectric dams and generating stations. “The cooler weather this weekend should be ideal for a canoe or boat ride to see fall colours or go for a hike, but it’s no time to stop thinking about water safety rules,” says Frank Chiarotto, OPG’s Senior Vice President Hydro-Thermal. “Water conditions may ap-

Sandercock said he expects they will be doing a lot of brush cutting and other work to allow for the huge numbers they will be expecting. “It will be a bigger show,

our 25th,” he noted. He added they hope to have it on Thursday, Friday and Saturday instead of starting mid-week which brought a lot of complaints from people who had to

work. However, there were 19,500 who attended the last one. Meetings on the Plowing Match will be held Tuesday nights starting in January at the Tuckers Corners facility. R0011654688/1004

pear safe, but can change frequently, rapidly and without warning.” “Our marine officers continue to promote safe boating, in particular the benefits of wearing your life jacket while on smaller boats which are prone to tipping,” says OPP Deputy Commissioner Larry Beechey. “Thirteen people have died in boating-related incidents in 2012, 12 of which involved vessels of less than six metres in length. People falsely assume if life jackets are available in the boat, they have time to put them on when there is trouble. Play it safe when heading out on the water.”

Local author completes trilogy By Sue Dickens


EMC Entertainment Warkworth - More than 100,000 words fill the pages of Destiny, a book written by Jennifer Gibson that closes one chapter in her life’s journey, and opens the doors to another. This is her final book in a series she started writing more than three years ago, which led to the launch of her first book, Sway, followed by the second titled Compass. “Destiny was the most difficult to write not because of the storyline but because it was emotionally exhausting; it was quite a journey for me,” she told EMC. The trilogy is based on events taken from her own life experiences as a hard-of-hearing teenager

who was often bullied. “I felt compelled to write this series. I felt the world needed to know, because there’s very few books about this … socially it’s a very isolating disability,” she commented. Writing has given Gibson the opportunity to put into words just how she felt growing up. “I wanted to give people an idea of what it’s like being a teenager especially one with a disability who is hearing impaired,” she explained. The idea for a trilogy came after fans read her first book and demanded more. “Sway is basically an introduction to Jessie, the main character, she’s me, basically a younger version of myself. The book

Thank You

contains facets of my life as I was growing up … and you’ll see a lot of situations and scenarios that are true events that happened to me that I’ve incorporated into my stories,” she added. In Compass Jessie tries different jobs to see what she’s good at, to see how she can deal with people, outside of school. In Destiny Jessie gets more jobs and learns a lot more about herself, “in terms of how strong she really is, in terms of how much she’s grown. She’s matured considerably by the third book. She has gained more confidence and self-esteem,” explained Gibson, who describes her books as a window to her soul. “I can recall actual situ-

ations and bring all the issues that came along with it, the emotions, the intensity of it and that helped me write,” she said, noting at one point she did have some misgivings. “Once in the hands of

“Don’t give up. Persevere. It takes a lot of courage, but it’s worth it in the end.” publishers it was then I suddenly asked myself what have I done because it is a huge chunk of my life and it’s out there for all the world to see.” But that didn’t stop her from continuing to write. Coincidentally completion of her trilogy coincides with the publication of her first book as a paperback. Sway and Compass were released as e-books through the Canadian company Kobo. “I spent over two years searching for publishers,” said Gibson with excitement. “I was hoping for a Canadian publisher to pick them up so I was searching all across Canada. Every five or six months I sent

out a new query and then one day I saw a site for authors and it was a contest pitch,” she explained. That site brought her writing to the attention of Black Opal Books, a company in the USA, which decided to publish her first book, bringing it to the marketplace as a paperback. The book Sway can now be ordered through,, Barnes and Noble, and “is coming to Chapters in a few weeks.” “All three books are going to be in paperback

eventually,” said Gibson with confidence. Her message to aspiring writers: “Don’t give up. Persevere. It takes a lot of courage, but it’s worth it in the end.” Gibson is donating copies of her book to the local libraries and a book signing is being planned for Cat Sass, in Norwood with signings in the works for Chapters/Indigo outlets in Peterborough and Belleville.

echoed by Reeve Dan McCaw of Wollaston. Both contended that most cultural activities, like most of the county’s economy, are based in the south and there is little benefit or impact north of Highway 7. They were commenting after Greg Baeker of the consultant firm presented an

overview of the plan which, he said, should be implemented over ten years. County Planner Brian McComb rose to defend the report, recalling his involvement with a similar study in Prince Edward County five years ago which has led to solid economic growth and benefit to the entire county in

the Loyal Blues Fellowship Inc, your local Blues Society, affiliated with the International Blues Foundation. The Fellowship hosts monthly jams and coffee houses at the Engineers Hall, in Belleville, and produces a “Blues in the

Schools” program in the area’s school boards. To register for the competition, contact Peggy Voigt, President, Loyal Blues Fellowship Inc at <festival@> or call 613-3921025.

recent years. The key thrust of recommendations was for more collaboration between various cultural organizations and activities, starting with a “round table” of municipal staff and cultural group representatives to work toward implementation. The plan was funded by Hastings County and the cities of Belleville and Quinte West, plus the province and the Eastern Ontario Economic Development Fund. Baeker noted it was an eight-month process involving some 340 people. He argued that while Canada has lost 340,000 manufacturing jobs in the past few years, creative sec-

tor jobs have added about 200,000, and the creative economy is expected to grow by 40 per cent over the next decade. Andrew Redden, county economic development director, in introducing Baeker, reminded that cultural tourism and other economic growth benefits were the main reason the county initiated the study. Council passed the study for adoption and implementation. In other business, Warden Rick Phillips announced a donation of $20,000 from the John and Bernice Parrott Foundation toward the new fitness facility in Hastings Manor.

Council was also referred to a report from the Trent Conservation Coalition for Drinking Water Source Protection for review and comment. Estimated costs for some Hastings County municipalities over five years are extremely high, such as $1.4 million for Stirling-Rawdon and almost $550,000 for Marmora-Lake. Warden Phillips also expressed continuing concern over proposed riding boundary changes and said he and others are working on alternatives with the electoral boundary commission to prevent the County of Hastings from being completely broken up.

EMC News - Brighton Northumberland OPP were dispatched to a Young Street property early last week after thieves entered an unlocked shed at a construction site and removed six 30-inch by 60-inch white sliding windows along with three bundles of insulation. The estimated value of the theft is approximately $2,100. An 18-year-old Cramahe Township male has been charged with mischief and possession of property obtained by crime after a pickup truck and an all-terrain vehicle (ATV) were stolen from a Campbellford business. On September 21, while the owner of the 2000 Nissan Frontier truck was inside inquiring about repairs, the vehicle was stolen along with the business owner’s four-wheel Yahama Blaster. Two days later, the truck was found, spray painted and covered in mud, south of Warkworth. The ATV was also recovered just east of where it was taken. Another 18-year-old male, of no fixed address, was charged with theft of a motor vehicle and possession of property obtained by crime.
