Kitchen happiness reaches new heights.


EMC Lifestyles - Belleville - Ghosts and goblins were out in force at the Children’s Safety Village last Saturday. The annual event allows youngsters and their parents to congregate at the Safety Village located at the rear of the Belleville Police station on Dundas Street East in Belleville. About 30 children and their parents visited the festive celebration in full costume for the four hours the event ran on Saturday. Besides games and events

the youngsters and their parents were educated by Belleville firefighters on proper Hallowe’en Safety tips to keep them safe during the big night. Tom Crosbie, chair of the board for the Children’s Safety Village, said fun was the order of the day on Saturday but basic safety practices for Hallowe’en were also being suggested. He noted things like being safe crossing the street, staying near well lit areas and even educating the parents on candy sorting after trick or treating.

“This is kind of a dry run for Hallowe’en for the kids,” he said. Crosbie opined that better weather would have been more ideal for the event. “We would have preferred it a little drier so that we could be out and about in the actual safety village, but we are inside and the celebration continues,” he said. The kids did various crafts, hung out with area firefighters and Sparky the firefighter mascot while delighting others

Afghanistan Repatriation Memorial is getting close to completion

EMC News - Quinte West The date of the official unveiling of the Afghanistan Repatriation Memorial in Bain Park is getting closer. The granite was just installed on October 26 and the date of the memorial is set for November 10. “We are expecting 170 family members,” said Mayor John Williams. “This is the biggest gathering of families of the fallen in one spot. It will be very emotional.” The idea for the Afghanistan Repatriation Memo-

rial came about as a way for everyday Canadians to remember the sacrifices of our Canadian military members in Afghanistan. The project, currently in the final stages of construction will be unveiled and dedicated on November 10, from 1 until 3 p.m. at Bain Park, just south of 8 Wing CFB Trenton close to the Highway of Heroes in the City of Quinte West. The monument will be a lasting memorial to Canada’s fallen soldiers who served in the Afghan

conflict. The ceremony has already attracted many dignitaries; His Excellency Barna Karimi, Afghan Ambassador to Canada, The Honourable Steven Blaney, Minister of Veteran Affairs and senior members of Canada’s military including Rear-Admiral Andrew Smith, Chief of Military Personnel, Major-General Pierre St-Amand, Commander of 1 Canadian Air Division and BrigadierGeneral Denis Thompson, Commander, Canadian Special Operations Forces

Command. In addition, Mr. Don Cherry, who is a great supporter of the military will also be there to show his support. An unprecedented number of families of the fallen from across Canada will also be in attendance with 175 confirmed to date and public attendance anticipated to be over 1,000. Ms. Kathy Bulger, mother of fallen soldier Corporal Nicholas Bulger was at the Official Sod Turning held in June. She described the location as a beautiful setting. “It’s very touching to think that Canadians are donating to this wonderful memorial and that the

money raised was done without the help of governments,” said Bulger. “To me it’s a heartfelt thanks from the public that recognizes the sacrifices made. “The memorial is in a wonderful setting, a place where people can spend a few moments of solitude to remember that sacrifice.” This project has been a $1.2-million initiative spearheaded entirely by volunteers and funded solely by Canadians, without any government assistance. This permanent memorial honours members of the Canadian military, men and women who sacrificed their lives in the war

in Afghanistan. The names of 158 fallen soldiers are engraved into this finely crafted granite monument providing a fitting tribute to honour those who gave. Located on the shore of the Bay of Quinte, the memorial is close to where Canadian repatriation ceremonies occur at the beginning of our fallen soldiers’ journey along the Highway of Heroes, from Trenton to Toronto. Project details and updates can be found on the memorial web site at <> where donations can also be made directly to the fund.

Wellesley explained that nowadays he is executive with the Bank of Montreal and has had postings all over the world, but those places don’t compare to his hometown. “In my day it was a great town to grow up in. We had very strong rival football teams; I remember that like it was yesterday,” he said. Wellesley commented on his Belleville roots noting he owes his success to the town. “I owe a lot to Belleville.

Volunteers strengthening communities By Michael J Brethour

EMC Lifestyles - Belleville Volunteers were in the spotlight last Thursday evening. Bob Gallagher, president and chief executive officer of YMCA of Central East Ontario said there are about 250 volunteers in the region of Central East Ontario. “I’m very pleased to see the representation of you here tonight, representing 150 volunteers that work diligently on dayto-day operations at the

YMCA,” said Gallagher to just about 100 people gathered at the Empire Theatre last Thursday evening. David Allen, regional director of the YMCA of Central East Ontario stated the YMCA is more than a building. “When someone mentions the YMCA people tend to think of a building, the swimming pool etc. What brings me to work every day is not the bricks and mortar … the Y exists to support build

and strengthen healthy communities,” said Allen. Volunteers were honoured one by one for their contributions to the greater whole of the Y in the first volunteer appreciation night. Longtime volunteer Nancy Murray was recognized as the second recipient of the Jan Stam Volunteer Service Award, in recognition of a volunteer’s commitment to the Y’s mission, vision and values, to those who have

helped others and offered their time through the Y’s recreation programs, The Jan Stam Award was first presented in 2011 to its namesake Jan Stam, a committed volunteer since 1967 who presented Murray with this year’s plaque, which will be on display at the Belleville Y. Community partners such as the Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board, EMC, The Rotary Club of Belleville, Starboard Communications, Quinte Broadcasting, Operation Red Nose, the City of Quinte West, and The Intelligencer were also recognized for their assistance as community partners to the YMCA. The complete list of honoured volunteers includes: Aquatics Volunteers Jake Allard, Kristianna Barton, Stephanie Clarey, Kai Mehrkens, Arjun Moorthy, Meera Moorthy, Debbie Robertson, Davanshi Shah, Kaylea

Vieira, Janet Weese. Board of Directors Brian Basterfield, Doug Bellwood, Steven Brickell, Bill Davie, Barry Guppy, Mary Hanley, Mary Carolyn Hart, Brad Horwood, John Joyce, John MacDonald, Angie McConkey, Gord McIntrye, David Morello, Tom Phillips, Cynthya Schmidt, Sharon Shortt Community - Melissa Adair, Becky Anderson, Tim Austin, Amy Boulter, Aaron Briden, Bonnie Bryans, Al Camelford, Inga Camelford, Dave Delarge, Cheryll Drumm, Chris Drumm, Ted Drumm, Mary Ellis, Maureen Flynn, Anna Frailberg, Jaclyn Grimmon, Bev Haight, Linda Harris, Fred Kuypers, Rob MacCallum, John Mallan, Maggie McDougall, Cailean McMartin, John McMartin, Nic O’Reilly Dan Reid, Darcy Reid, Cory Richard, Doug Richens, Mark Rollins, Dagmar Ronnenberger, Jens

EODP FUNDING NOW AVAILABLE The Eastern Ontario Development Program (EODP) provides funding support for small businesses and not-for-profit organizations that are looking to execute projects that will strengthen the local economy and create jobs in the process. “Business Development” projects supported include business planning, skills training, internships, export development, communications technology development and adoption. Eligible “Community Innovation” projects are those that are designed to increase the capacity of communities to grow, to diversify and to foster job creation. Funding support can range from 50% of the eligible project cost ( private sector ) and higher for not-for-profit organizations, although projects that attract funds from own or other sources will receive higher consideration.

EMC News - Trenton Hospitals will play an increasingly smaller role in everyday health care, Quinte Health Care President and CEO Mary Clare Egberts told the board’s October meeting held in Trenton Memorial Hospital Tuesday. She referred board members to a copy of a speech she made recently to the Belleville Chapter of the Canadian Federation of University Women which, she said,

sums up her thoughts about the future of hospitals in the health care system. She also included a copy of her talk in the board’s package. Essentially, she said, Quinte Health Care, indeed all hospitals in Ontario, must accept continued and increased restrictions on finances in the years ahead and prepare to scale down. She noted that almost half, 46 cents, of every Ontario tax dollar is spent on health care, the provincial

debt is now $215 billion and there is an annual deficit of $14 billion. At this rate, she said, by 2017, interest on the debt alone will be almost $20 billion, nearly half of the present $45 million Ontario health care budget. Those figures will impact future funding, she said. As part of that, the board confirmed what amounts to a pay freeze for executive and senior staff at least for the next five years. She sees an increased role of various community care providers, medical clinics and in-home care rather than hospitals. But that does not take away from her goal, and that of the Quinte Health Care Board to aim for the best possible care of all patients at the lowest possible cost. In terms of cost, the board and staff have been wrestling with a projected $1-million deficit for the current year and great strides have been made, with more than $800,000 in savings over the next several months projected so far. The board has adopted a policy of holding at least one meeting a year in all four communities served by Quinte Health Care. The board’s November meeting will be in Picton.

Dear Editor, I am writing to express my concern over the new trade deal Stephen Harper has worked out with China. In one week Harper could commit Canada to the most sweeping trade deal in a generation without a single debate or vote. Many Canadians are eager to develop our resources for sale to other countries knowing it will bring jobs and tax revenue to our country. Of course the biggest of these resources at the moment is the tar sands of Alberta. If the Canada-China

FIPA passes, it will pave the way for China’s massive companies to spend billions buying out Canada’s natural resource companies. Some may welcome this investment but may not realize that under FIPA, China’s companies can sue Canadian governments, federal, provincial or municipal, in secret tribunals outside the Canadian court system if those governments do anything that would limit the companies’ profits in Canada. Also, the FIPA would tie our hands for 31 years, making it possible for China’s




the political system, where every four years the public is allowed to change from Tweedle Dee to Tweedle Dum if the spirit moves them. This gives them the illusion of democracy. Since the approximately 2.5 billion or more dollars spent on the current presidential campaign is supplied mostly by corporate America to both parties, it really makes little difference who ends up in power. Big pharma, big oil, Wall Street, the armaments manufacturers, agribusiness, the Israeli lobby, the Pentagon and others will decide what and where the American people are going, at least until the money finally runs out. Mr. Ethier claims that Obama is transferring wealth to the masses, when the opposite is true. All those tax breaks went to the top one per cent most actually went to the top .01 per cent or those you run to for election campaign contributions. America is certainly top

of the heap when you count those in prison. The “land of the free” imprisons more of its people by far than any other country, including China and Russia. It also surpasses the rest by a wide margin with the numbers in solitary confinement. The UN claims that more than 15 days in the hole is “torture or cruel and inhuman punishment.” California alone has 11,730 prisoners doing solitary. Eighty have been there for 20 years. One has spent 42 years in the hole. A vast chunk of the U.S. prison population are there for nonviolent drug related offences. Added revenues for the California private prison system “thanks” to those prisoners moved to solitary amounts to $144 million. More in, more often, the better the corporations like it.

Imagine how this affects the women and children. The USA outspends almost all western countries put together on military might. Its approximately 1,000 military bases around the globe, some of which are there against the wishes of the host country, are a huge drain on the taxpayer. Some of this money spent on health care and education for instance, could vastly improve lives at home, but then private healthcare is a right. The right to choose your doctor is of course only available to those with sufficient cash, the rest do not count. Fifty per cent of all U.S. personal bankruptcies are the result of medical bills. The child mortality rate puts the USA at the top of the list, that is if you consider more as better. Spending is also a factor in

In the football are the means to destroy most life on this planet. We assume the president would press the button if he felt the situation sufficiently severe, otherwise why keep the nuclear mission ready. Does anyone else on this planet actually feel this scenario is even thinkable? Other things, which occupy the president, are the “kill lists.” These are perceived enemies of the USA who have been suspected of being anti-American, but are not readily accessed for solitary in Guantanamo, so they are to be killed by remote controlled drones along with family and friends who may be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Those who try to dig in the rubble to help

companies to challenge Canadian laws that create jobs, protect our environment and build healthy communities with billion-dollar lawsuits that would cost taxpayers dearly. Canada has already spent hundreds of millions on penalties from lawsuits launched under the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), and right now Belgium is facing a

$3-billion suit from one of China’s companies because of a similar foreign investor agreement. Is Rick Norlock aware of the conditions of FIPA? How about Daryl Kramp? Do they really believe their man in Ottawa has it right this time? Please think again. Sincerely, Andrew Queen, Campbellford

Teflon man McGuinty strikes again Dear Editor, A lot of people, like myself, agree with a pundit who recently commented that Premier Dalton McGuinty should be brought up on charges. He has been misappropriating public funds, including green energy fraud, for so long that it has become outrageous. This is the legacy McGuinty will take with him into retirement because too many taxpayers trusted him to do the right thing. Instead, most of us have been robbed blind by his green energy frenzy that has doubled hydro rates and made Ontario the most costly energy jurisdiction in North America. If you’re a scam artist and con people out of their hardearned funds, you are likely to be arrested and charged. In politics, you generally get

away with such indiscretions and McGuinty is definitely a strong example. What it amounts to is that the McGuinty government has pilfered billions of taxpayer dollars on a series of boondoggles and gets applauded by his own caucus. In private business, if he misappropriated public funds, he would be serving a long prison sentence. But, in politics, his efforts are regarded as “just brilliant strategy.” Thank Mr. McGuinty for nine years of scandal, corruption, lies and plundering of the provincial treasury, just as you would expect from any dedicated socialist. But I’m sure his chief apologist, Warren Kinsella, will be able to whitewash his efforts as just “good old dirty politics.” Rolly Ethier, Campbellford

EMC Editorial - Six years in jail and an average fine of over a million dollars: that was the punishment given to six Italian scientists on October 22 for getting their earthquake advice wrong. So what will the expert geologists and Gwynne Dyer vulcanologists in Italy say the next time they are asked about the likelihood of an earthquake? They will refuse to say anything, of course. More than 5,000 scientists have signed a letter supporting their colleagues who found themselves standing trial for manslaughter in the medieval city of L’Aquila, where 309 people died in an earthquake in 2009. But the case is a bit more complex than it first appears. People always look for a scapegoat when disaster strikes, and it’s understandable that the bereaved people of L’Aquila wanted someone to blame. Most of them were glad when the six Italian scientists were convicted: at least somebody was being punished for the crime. But it wasn’t exactly the crime that those 5,000 foreign scientists thought they had been accused of. Even lawyers and judges know that you cannot predict an earthquake with any certainty. What the six were actually accused of was being too reassuring about how likely an earthquake was. There were hundreds of small shocks around L’Aquila in the weeks before the big one struck, and the six scientists were sent to the city to assess the level of danger. They judged the risk as minor, and one, foolishly, said there was “no danger”. On the basis of this scientific advice, it is claimed, thousands of citizens decided to sleep in their houses rather than outside— and 309 of them were crushed in their houses a week later when the magnitude 6.3 quake brought them down. So the scientists’ crime was not a failure to predict the quake, but a failure to state clearly that it COULD happen. It’s still a stupid charge. Half of the really big earthquakes are preceded by a flurry of smaller shocks, true; but such clusters of small shocks are quite common, and only five per cent of them are followed by a major quake. So the scientists were caught on the horns of a familiar dilemma. Fail to issue a warning before a big quake, and you will be discredited (and maybe, if you are Italian, charged with manslaughter). But issue warnings every time there is a five per cent risk, and you will cause 19 needless mass evacuations for every neces-

sary one. You will be “crying wolf,” which is usually counterproductive. The scientists’ conviction will probably be reversed on appeal, bringing this whole foolish episode to an end. For the rest of us, however, this just illustrates how hard it is for human beings to deal sensibly with big but incalculable risks. The biggest incalculable risk of a purely natural order that we know about is the mega-tsunami that will be unleashed when the western flank of Cumbre Vieja volcano on the island of La Palma in the Canaries slides into the Atlantic Ocean. In an eruption in 1949, a chunk of rock about 500 cubic kilometres (120 cubic miles) in size, with a mass of 150 billion tons, became detached from the main ridge and slid two metres (seven feet) down toward the sea. This is bad news for people living around the Atlantic Ocean. In some future volcanic eruption (there have been six in the past 500 years), that whole mass may slide all the way into the ocean and generate a tsunami that would initially be about 600 metres (2,000 feet) high. It would travel outwards in an expanding circle at some 1,000 kilometres an hour (600 miles per hour), destroying everything on the western coast of Africa in one hour. It would inundate England’s south coast in three, and reach the east coast of the United States, Canada and Cuba in six. Brazilians would have to wait a little longer. The waves would reach up to 20 kilometres (13 miles) inland in low-lying areas. Many tens of millions would die. So let’s imagine that there’s another eruption on Cumbre Vieja, and a committee of global experts is convened to watch the western flank for signs of movement. Should they advise evacuation along all the vulnerable coasts? That’s several hundred million people. Who will give those people food and shelter? How long must they stay inland? And the economic damage would be huge. The experts can’t wait until the last minute to give their advice: you can’t evacuate the entire U.S. east coast in six hours. If they advise evacuation, and nothing bad happens, they will be the most unpopular people on the planet. If they don’t, and the worst does happen, they will be seen as guilty of mass manslaughter, just like the Italian scientists at L’Aquila. Since it will always be much likelier that no catastrophe is going to happen this time, the experts will almost certainly issue reassuring statements intended to keep people in their homes. Just like the Italian scientists. And yet some day, next week or a thousand years from now, that mass of rock on Cumbre Vieja will really fall into the sea. Damned if you do, and damned if you don’t.

One small step from fascism

Dear Editor, In Rolly Ethier’s October 18 letter, he equates any concern for the well being of fellow humans as socialism and goes on to say, “Socialism is one small step away from communism, a disease that has murdered millions around the world.” By the same token, I could say that neo-conservative politics are one small step away from fascism, a disease that has murdered tens of millions around the world. Mr. Ethier also makes the nonsensical claim that, “President Barack Obama is definitely aiming to transform the U.S. into a communist society” and “If he is re-elected it is a done deal.” If that is indeed Obama’s plan why hasn’t he already done so? After all, he’s already been in power for four years. Mr. Ethier then goes on to claim that Russia is still a communist country. No it isn’t, and hasn’t been for years. It’s now a nation that has fully embraced capitalism … unfortunately though, only its worst aspects. The former communist nation now veers closer to being a right-wing fascist state! Get

your facts up-to-date, Mr. Ethier. He also states that in European countries, “… millions are struggling to exist under a small, elite group of communist rich who really don’t care about the masses. Just like the United Nations.” Surely he meant to say “fascist rich” and “Just like the United States.” Rolly Ethier claims that, “… the U.S. developed into the greatest, most prosperous and most generous country in the world under free enterprise capitalism.” It’s not so anymore. The American economy has been seriously weakened by right wing politics. At the beginning of the Bush era the U.S.A. did NOT have a huge debt. However, eight years of right wing rule resulted in two, undeclared, illegal and never-ending wars. Those, still ongoing, conflicts have drained America’s coffers requiring the accumulation of a huge debt … owed to China, a nation made wealthy by trade with the U.S. and ruled by a Communist government. Does Mr. Ethier have no sense of irony? Also, it was Mr. Ethier’s vaunted “unfettered, free enterprise capitalism” that brought about the current world-wide economic crisis, was it not? As to U.S. “generosity,” I take it this refers to the billions of dollars of foreign aid that the U.S.A has given to poor nations over the years. Using tax dollars to redistribute wealth. By Mr. Ethier’s standards, that’s socialism. So a country that owes its rise to unfettered, free enterprise capitalism practises international Marxist-socialism. Huh? Do neo-cons ever think before they speak? Roy Condy, Norwood

So, was the name Sunny already taken? By Terry Bush EMC Editorial - Okay, that’s just me being a smart ass. The names of tropical storms, hurricanes etc. are decided each year long before the storms actually form but still, for something as powerful and destructive as a hurricane, Sandy doesn’t quite do it justice. Sounds more like someone you might like to date. Over the years, many of us have had the pleasure of hitching a ride in Cougars, Mustangs, Meteors, Barracudas, Chargers, you know, wild and tough sounding vehicles. If you were thinking of buying a car that would blow the doors off your rivals, would you consider buying a Nissan Sandy or a Toyota Leslie? Chances are you might consider something that sounds a little grittier with a name that invokes raw power, destruction and carnage like a Nissan Ninja or a Toyota T-Rex; monikers that would up the testosterone levels. As I hear the wind howling outside on Monday evening, I’m not sure if I should be worried that a tree might come crashing down on our house or if Sandy might drop a grain of sand in my eye should I be reckless enough to stick my head out the window. If Hurricane Strangler was blowing the bejeezus out of my shingles right now, I might cringe a little but Sandy? I’m sure there must be a Sandy out there somewhere making some guy’s life miserable but I can’t say I’ve ever met anyone with that name who was anything less than very nice. The storm season will be over in another month but that still leaves a little death and destruction yet to come from Tony, who’s already started brewing and Valerie and William waiting in the wings. Don’t Valerie and Will sound more like the fun-loving neighbours next door? Not to make light of a bad situation but considering bad weather always seems to destroy the lives of the poorest among us, it’s nice to see that at least the powers that be have started to use names that reflect the people being affected. Ernesto, Alberto and Rafael have already passed through paying homage to many of those affected throughout the Caribbean and the state of Florida. If we had a Hurricane Brandene followed by Hurricane Cletus, the list would be complete. Being flippant seems to have earned me the wrath of Sandy, who has just now knocked out my Internet. So much for doing any more research to finish this piece. The weather this week is fairly typical for this time of year considering Hallowe’en usually isn’t the nicest evening in our little part of Ontario. How many of you remember eagerly anticipating the yearly festival of trick or treating, unable to sleep the night before because you had the coolest costume the world had ever seen. You couldn’t wait to show it off, only to find once again that despite a couple of days of short-sleeve friendly weather, Hallowe’en had played an ugly trick on you; another damp and cold night with your mother waiting by the door coat in hand. And how many of you nodded your heads up and down and agreed with your mom that no, you most certainly wouldn’t want to catch a cold by venturing out into a damp and dreary night to reap as much sugar as was humanly possible for a nine-year-old to carry. I’m sure I’m not the only one who ditched my coat in the back seat of the family car while venturing out to show off my brilliant costume soon to realize that mom was right as usual and I was freezing my butt off. But that was then and this is now. We didn’t get many trick or treaters at our old place maybe a dozen if we were really lucky and all the cousins, nephews and nieces showed up. We’ll get even fewer where we are now but I can’t complain. The stalwart wife will have little chocolate bars waiting by the door just in case… just in case her husband feels like feeding his face for the rest of the week that is. That’s how it’s been for the past 25 years or so and I can’t see it ever changing. I may spice things up a little bit this year by actually knocking on the door to let her hand out the goodies that always end up in my stomach. Hurricane Sandy will have petered out by then and it will be time for another storm to take its place with a name starting with the letter T. Tony, unless we’re talking Soprano isn’t really that scary sounding for a hurricane so maybe I’ll greet her as Hurricane Terry-ble. I can be pretty scary at times, much more so than anyone named Sandy. In fact, I once literally scared the crap out of our dog just by yelling at him after finding another wet spot on the leg of a pair of pants hanging on a chair. I wasn’t scary Terry enough that he didn’t do it again but still, it was a proud moment however fleeting, as fleeting as our memories of this storm will be considering what’s headed our way in December.

of visitors to complete their shopping list; choosing from the work of more than 100 artisans from across the province at two heritage homes and a modern interpretive centre, all overlooking Lake Ontario. An army of volunteers turns the park nature centre into a ten-room Christmas House. Next door, at Stonehedge, visitors can sit; enjoy hot drinks and desserts (including the now-famous rum cake and homemade cookies). The Interpretive Centre, located next to the lighthouse, is transformed into an art gallery featuring the work of well-known artists; this year, featuring graphite and coloured-pencil realist Doug Comeau, watercolour artist Rose Brown and watercolour and acrylic painter Linda Barber, who will be on site.

Trent-Severn Waterway season for 2013 EMC News - Rick Norlock, MP for Northumberland-Quinte West and other Members of Parliament met with the Honourable Peter Kent, Minister of the Environment, to announce that no changes will be made to the Trent-Severn Waterway’s (TSW) 2013 navigational season. “A group of MPs, with ridings located along the Trent-Severn Waterway, formed a working group at the early part of the year to discuss the future of the waterway,” said

MP Norlock. “We also discussed a variety of options and viable solutions, based on conversations and meetings with businesses, mayors and recreational users, to ensure the longevity and prosperity of this national treasure.” Parks Canada spends $16 million to operate the TSW each year; like all federal departments and agencies, Parks Canada has been asked to reduce spending to help eliminate the deficit and balance the federal budget

by the 2015-2016 fiscal year. With no change to the 2013 season, there are still feasible options to assist Parks Canada with their budget goals. “Initially, Parks Canada proposed a plan to reduce operational costs through a reduction in hours of the annual navigational season,” said MP Norlock. “Based on feedback from business owners and community leaders, a shortened season would greatly impact those who base their livelihood on a robust operating season.”

will be an Islamic/Communist nation. But wait! That won’t work either. For those of us who can recall the Cold War years, we still remember that the Eastern European States, along with Russia, were referred to as “the godless Communists.” Muslims are very religious, so they would be incompatible with Communism. Now enter the ultra-right Tea Party with its fears of a Communist state because of the United Nations Agenda 21. The Tea Party claims that this UN Agenda 21 is the path that the United States will take to Socialism. And who signed that agreement on behalf of the U.S.? None other than George H. W. Bush, or about as far to the Conservative right as possible. It was Canada’s number one, right wing Tory, Brian Mulroney, who signed for Canada. Looks to me that it’s the right wing politicos who want us to go down the socialist path. Bob Johnson, Stirling

the 2012 Women’s Week in Trenton running from November 5 until 9. Melanie Flynn, executive director of Habitat For Humanity Prince Edward Hastings, says the focus of the event is to generate awareness of the worthy build projects of the organization and at the same time empower women. “Habitat for Humanity is really an empowering agency, allowing people to see almost immediately the fruits of their labours and efforts right away,” stated Flynn. “It is something you can

see and touch.” She noted the annual event, now in its second year locally, was inspired by the lack of women on the agency’s build sites. The event has a registration cost of $50 or a minimum of $100 of fund raising that earns the ladies a day of building; the day is chosen by the participants. Flynn said for the registration costs participants get a T-shirt, a swag bag and lunch from a local restaurant. After lunch the ladies get treated to either a massage or yoga and then return to

work serenaded by music from local musicians. She said it is no issue if the women do not know the necessary building skills as there will be building coaches on site to show the ladies the ropes. “It’s meant to be fun, but giving women the opportunity to work side by side with the family that will be moving in the home and they will go home with a skill set,” noted Flynn. “A lot was accomplished last year and the ladies were surprised what they got done and everyone had a

blast,” she said. Flynn said the organization would hope to walk away from the week with $10,000 raised, but she said ultimately the awareness and actual building is the goal.

Trades take root at the Quinte Mall EMC Events - Belleville The trades are in need of more bodies and the careers can be varied and rewarding. That was the message organizers behind last Saturday’s Trades Fair at the Quinte Mall sought to deliver to potential interested individuals.

Mike Hewitt, a local organizer behind Trade Roots, showcased at the Quinte Mall last Saturday, said the event allows colleges and manufacturers to show off the various careers available in the trades field. He said a total of 57 booths were set up throughout the Quinte Mall, “Some of those are

risburg. “The original funding from the government was an aim of getting youth involved in the trades,” he said. Hewitt said the day was also a chance for employers to talk to everyone, not just students, about what it takes to work in their field whether it is manufactur-

ing or retail. Everything from robotics, wind turbines, spa treatments, call centres and home based businesses were showcased. Feedback from the public was very positive and Hewitt said the hope is the show, in some incarnation, will return.

The 2013’s are here early. That’s the Power to Surprise.


EMC News - Brighton East Northumberland Secondary School (ENSS) students got a glimpse into local government operations last week with a visit to the municipal building and fire hall. The aim is to help students understand how municipal government affects their everyday lives as well as enhance the “levels of government” module of the Grade 10 civics course. The course includes a look at citizenship, national politics, democracy and human rights. “I hope to get something for all the students,” said ENSS teacher Harold Kuschnik. “Many of them live in this jurisdiction, their families pay taxes, so now they can see how decisions made here impact their lives.” Municipal CAO Gayle Frost, Mayor Mark Walas, Fire Chief Lloyd Hutchinson, all ENSS graduates, and Community Development Officer

Vaughn Finch explained their background, educational history and their role within the municipality. The close-up look at local government is the result of meetings between officials at ENSS, Northumberland Business Advisory Centre and the municipality. “Anytime you can engage youth, it’s a good thing,” said Finch. “And it was an obvious choice to give those students in the civics class an opportunity to see where the council chambers actually are. “As well, it’s establishing the fact they can contact their municipal representatives regardless of their age. They do have a say and their questions are as valid as any other resident. It’s great to establish those connections so they know where we are, who we are and we’re here to listen.” “There are going to be job openings in the future,” added Finch, referring to the Leadership Excellence Advancement Pilot Project (LEAPP),

an action plan to deal with the looming leadership gap in Ontario’s municipal sector and find ways to develop the next wave of municipal staff leaders. “We’re letting the students know there are opportunities right here in Brighton in several different areas.” In all, about 100 students will attend the sessions, which concluded at press time Tuesday. “Everybody should be interested in politics because it has such a great effect on people’s lives,” said student Emily Lind, who was honoured with the title of Mayor for the Day. “People my age don’t really realize that because we’re at an age where we really don’t have much control, or we don’t think we do. But if you were to get more involved you would probably have more of an impact.”

Quinte Red Devils weekly report

Peewee On Saturday the Cornerstone Builders Peewees travelled to Peterborough only to come home with a disappointing 7 - 4 loss. Goals in this game came from Nathan Dunkley, Brandon Grills, Matt Sherwin and Mathew

Poole. Assists went to Dawson Baker, Scott Belanger and Carter Kelsh. Goaltending in this game was split between Evan Morrison and Pierce Nelson. On Sunday the team travelled to Oshawa and came away with a 2 0 win. Mathew Poole scored both goals for Quinte with one assist each for Nathan Dunkley and Dawson Baker. Pierce Nelson recorded the shutout for the Red Devils. Bantam The Kwik Kopy Bantams posted a great week with four wins, one at home and three on the road. On Monday night, the Devils played the Markham Waxers at the Angus Glen Community Centre. Austin Labelle opened up the scoring with a goal in the first. The assist went to James Pero. The Waxers fought back and the Quinte lineup, missing two regulars, started to show fatigue. Markham scored two goals near the end of the period. After the break, the Devils came out and dominated the Waxers but did have trouble scoring. Eventually, Graiden Maynard tied the game (assists to Greg Thomas and Trent Schutt) at two. After more pressure, Maynard dangled the Markham defense with a nice move and slipped the puck behind the goalie.

Quinte withstood a furious last minute of pressure and left with a 3 - 2 win. Jack Moore was in net for the win. On Tuesday night in Marmora, the Devils took an early lead and never looked back in a 4 - 1 victory over the Peterborough Petes. Austin Labelle started off the scoring in the first period with assists going to Graiden Maynard and Cody Smith. A point pass on the power play led to another goal by Greg Thomas (assists to Matt Cavanaugh and Cody Smith). A “re-direction” by the foot of Greg Thomas led to goal number three and an empty net tally by Thomas (assist to Schutt) in the last minute was the final scoring play of the game. Jack Moore was in net for the win. On Friday night at the Durham College Arena, the Devils defeated the Oshawa Minor Generals by a score of 4 - 1. On Sunday afternoon in Bowmanville, the team needed its best effort, facing the perennial league power Clarington Toros. Brodie Maracle gave the Devils an early lead (assists to Matt Bruinsma and Nick Salt), but the Toros tied the score at one. Quinte resisted the Toros’ charge and goals by Ty Tebo and Graiden May-

nard sent the team away with a 3 - 1 victory. Jack Moore was in net for the win. Minor Midget The McInroy Maines Minor Midget team played three games this week, losing 5 - 0 to both Kingston and Barrie, then tying Central Ontario 2 - 2. Goals were scored by Josh Hodge and Chays Ruddy, with assists going to Jordan Easton, Jordan Guindon and Josh Hodge. Midget Foley’s Midgets took three out of four points this weekend! Quinte threw the first-place South Central Coyotes into a tailspin Friday night at home with a 4 - 2 win. Opening the scoring early was Mitchell Burke with two followed by Riley Steeves and Mitchell Pearce with one each to lead 3 - 0 starting the third. The opponents’ effort to recover was limited. Four saves by the crossbar combined with 32 saves by Josh Lasher kept the Coyotes at bay! On the road, the energy continued October 28 with the Red Devils and the YorkSimcoe Express each taking a single point. Lasher owned the net, stopping shot after shot.

Female students learn the “trades” basics

By Michael J Brethour

EMC News - Belleville Girls can do it just as well or better. That’s the belief when it comes to technological advances in the trades fields requiring more thinking outside the box for problem solving. To encourage girls to consider the opportunities and benefits of a future in skilled trades, Loyalist College hosted the third annual Tradewise event on October 24. A total of 55 female students in Grades 9 and 10 from 11 participating schools in the Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board and the

Algonquin and Lakeshore Catholic District School Board descended upon the college to experiences various trades.

“We are considering this as the beginning of a process.” John O’Rourke, Director, Skills Programming Department, said the trades are not just an alpha male dominated field anymore. “It’s not a matter of just getting a bigger hammer to fix an issue anymore; nowa-

days problem solving is paramount,” he said. The day-long program saw five female students from each school learning the basics of two of the eight trade skill programs offered. O’Rourke said that despite trying to encourage women to join the trade industries, statistically there are just as few women in the trades today. “We are considering this as the beginning of a process. We are opening the doors to them in the hopes they will come back for other activities as well,” stated O’Rourke. Students participated in a variety of fun activities

organized by the Culinary, Automotive, Manufacturing, Welding, Electrical, Surveying, Esthetics and Construction Renovation programs. A number of the interactive sessions were led by women students and faculty in the programs. Loyalist College prepares students for a rewarding career by combining rigorous academic standards with hands-on training from industry experts. Programs range from apprenticeships and certificates to diplomas and post-graduate studies. Loyalist offers more than 60 full-time programs and 77 university transfer agreements around the world.

Consider a move that brings you closer together.

Belleville EMC - Thursday, November 1, 2012

Road costs worry Hastings councillors ince is spending millions of dollars on Highway 62, especially in the Belleville-Foxboro area, so is aware of the traffic and conditions on that highway. Warden Rick Phillips reported that he and senior staff have been negotiating with the province to get a better deal on road funding but so far to no avail. He also noted the county already plows its share of federal gasoline tax back to its member municipalities. A motion to have the warden name a special committee to deal with the problems was passed unanimously. In other business, Warden Phillips is likely to remain in the post for another year. In preparation for the inaugural session of council for next year in November, CAO Jim Pine presided over nominations for warden. The only name put forward was that of the incumbent, Rick Phillips, Reeve of Tyendinaga. The nomination will be confirmed by vote next month. Council also heard a delegation from the Kingston hospital complex, thanking them for their contribution to new construction needs and reporting on how their donation is being used.

EMC News - Marmora - Rising road costs are starting to threaten Hastings County municipalities, county council was told Thursday at a meeting held in Marmora Town Hall. The concerns came primarily from smaller northern municipalities where populations as small as a few hundred are wrestling with maintaining miles of former provincial highway and county roads to adequate standards for commercial and tourism traffic. Reeve Dan McCaw of Wollaston Township opened the discussion, urging that council make a more concerted effort to obtain more funding or else get the province to upload some sections they downloaded to local municipalities some years ago. “If your roads fall through, you’re done,” he said. He stated that one section of major road alone in his township cost $76,000 to maintain … and that spread over only some 500 people. His concerns were quickly echoed by several other county councillors, even the Village of Stirling representative. And Centre Hastings Reeve Owen Ketcheson reminded that the prov-

My Theatre holds open house to promote season By Kate Everson

EMC Entertainment Trenton - The fifth season of My Theatre opened with

a celebration on October 26 as friends and fans gathered in the renovated upstairs of the historic town hall on

King Street. “This is a beautiful building,” said Laura Rickards, promoting the theatre.


Festival of Native Arts

“Many volunteer hours went into it.” She credited “Shawn and Johnny” for having done a lot of the work painting. Shawn Ellis, president of the Trent Port Historical Society, added that Johnny Fletcher did 220 hours of painting. “Johnny never missed a day of work,” he said with a smile. Shawn’s mother Lorraine made the beautiful curtains and his father Harvey painted for 140 hours. Ellis noted that with the support of the historical society, My Theatre needed no funding from Trenval this year. Artistic director Len Hirst, claiming to be the oldest member, said he was very proud of what has happened here. He credited the Trent Port Historical Society for picking up the bill

for renovations. “We are really grateful,” he said. Carl Cashin, president of the Bay of Quinte Community Players (My Theatre), said this all started four years ago with a small theatre group. “We have come so far in four years,” he said with a smile. He noted that the first Trenton theatre group actually started in the 1950s with Jim Alexander, but that guild joined with Belleville. “This is a wonderful thing for Trenton,” he said. He noted that this season includes three plays: two farces and a comedy. “This is very unusual,” he said. “We have put on really good dramas to empty houses, but farces have sold out the house. This is the way of theatre today. People have so much stress in their lives they just want to relax and watch something that

makes them laugh.” The first play is Sin, Sex and the CIA from November 15 to December 1, Remember Me? in March, and Out of Order in May and June, as well as a special Christmas party with Victorian dress and readings. All the information is on the web site at <> and tickets can be ordered online or by phone at 613-392-7635. Subscriptions are now available and tickets can also be ordered through the Chamber of Commerce and paid at the door. “Sin, Sex and the CIA is absolutely outrageous!” Cashin said with a laugh. The play was written by Michael and Susan Parker and is directed by Len Hirst. Opening night for the performance is November 15 at 8 p.m. The cast of the play took a bow on stage.

Funny, punny murder mystery aids historical society By Jack Evans

EMC Entertainment - Belleville - A plethora of pithy puns poured from professional actors providing entertain-

ment galore for members and supporters of the Hastings County Historical Society for its gala banquet and Comedy Murder Mystery night in the

Dressed and looking like a copy of the television detective Columbo, this actor kept the audience in stitches as he investigated the “moider” of one of Big Al’s gang members in an audience-interactive fun murder mystery.

Travelodge Hotel Saturday evening. A capacity crowd of 150 attended the event, which is expected to raise more than $5,000 to go toward the society’s continuing quest to fund a new archives centre. It was a colourful audience, many dressed in Roaring Twenties and Flapper era costumes plus the seven-member dinner theatre troupe from Hamilton in gangland style dress. Every guest was also assigned a nickname, such as “Diamond” for Councillor Pat Culhane and “Gentleman Charlie” for rum runner writer Bill Hunt. Belleville Town Crier Bruce Bedell set the mood by referring to “Corbyville tea,” and demanding: “Sit down, shut up and pay attention.” Warming up the audience with period songs was a piano-saxophone combo by Dan Bone, after which the audience was introduced to “Big Al” (as in Al Capone … and he really was BIG) and his gang of hoods. There was also a formal greeting from society presi-

dent Richard Hughes who outlined the goal of finding a proper home for the society’s collection of some 50,000 historical photos and one million negatives and other artifacts. Early in the evening, one of Big Al’s pals who had escaped from prison and the electric chair, still got his shocking end with a sabotaged microphone, leading to accusations among gang members and the appearance of an actor detective called “Carumbo,” a play in appearance and role on the famous Columbo detective series. The antics and puns of the actors kept the audience in stitches in between food courses. One example was a gang member resenting “innuendo.” “What’s that?” shot back another gang member: “an Italian suppository?” Prize for best costume went to John Lowery, who, apart from his authentic clothing, had personally fashioned a replica Tommy gun. Despite the brain power of many of Belleville’s most

John Lowery and his home-crafted Tommy gun drew a lot of attention at the banquet, including from Big Al’s gang member Edy.

esteemed citizens, Carumbo, reading through cards of suspect conclusion from the audience assessed it, in good humour, as “one of the dumbest audiences I’ve ever seen.” Audience suspects included the victim himself, people in the audience, and even names from thin air. “We told you who the

suspects were and only one was guilty,” he chided, as he identified the gang member responsible. A few actually got it right. While the $65 a plate dinner raised a bit of profit, the main profit was in sponsorship of some 20 tables by various city and area business and professional sponsors.

Hypnosis a laughing matter for Cole But she admits her time onstage, being as much a

spectator as a participant, was both memorable and

enjoyable, with plenty of laughs thrown in. Cole performed at the

Lions Hall as part of the club’s Scarecrow Weekend festivities last week, which

also included a Fish Fry and a special appearance by the Stirling Citizens Band.


Hypnotist Richard Cole offers instructions to a group of volunteers during a show at the Lions Hall in Stirling recently. The show offered plenty of laughs for those in attendance.

Delicious Roast Beef Dinner 6 pm

Dinner & Show $62 Dinner & 2 Shows $95


EMC News - Stirling When hypnotist Richard Cole took the stage at the Lions Hall last weekend, he was joined by about a dozen willing audience volunteers, prepared to be spellbound. Urging his “stars of the show” to relax and focus on their breathing, Cole soon had them imagining heavy buckets held in each hand, or helium balloons, before conjuring images that put his subjects in a deep freeze or in a seaside heat wave. After eventually returning about half of the volunteers to their seats in the audience, Cole offered further scenarios for those remaining onstage. A crowd of about 100 erupted with laughter throughout the show as imaginary ice creams were licked, or binoculars were focused on a group of waving, naked senior citizens. And for many in the audience, Cole’s subjects were indeed the stars of the show. Expressions exchanged when instructed to fall madly in love with their neighbour were just as amusing as the responses to the unexpected nudists. And while the participants were affected in varying degrees, most agreed it was a highly entertaining experience. For Peter Kooistra, who during the show was momentarily unable to unclasp his hands, says he wasn’t quite sure what to expect when he volunteered. “But it was interesting, that’s for sure.” For volunteer Shirley Deck, the experience was less transfixing than hoped. “Apparently I have too active an imagination,” she says of her inability to slip into a hypnotic state.

Conference a feast for friends of the forest By Kate Everson

EMC News - Trenton The 23rd Woodlot Conference will be held Friday, November 23, from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Knights of Columbus Hall in Trenton. Registration is accepted until November 9 to ensure a lunch. “It is open to the general public,” notes Susan Moore. “People come from all over eastern Ontario. It has the latest updates on forestry, how to plant trees and forest techniques that work in your own backyard.” Moore notes the $25 admission includes a wonderful roast beef or pork lunch provided by Doug and Helen Turpin. “It’s worth admission just for the lunch,” she says with a laugh. Cliff MacLean from Tweed, chair of the Hastings Stewardship Council, has been attending for 12 years. He points out that the 47 stewardship councils across Ontario are being phased out by March 2013 and that the funding for coordinators will also be gone. The councils have sponsored the Woodlot Conferences every year. “This cannot die,” he says. “We must continue on.” He says losing the Min-

istry of Natural Resources funding for the programs is a great opportunity for individuals to make it even better. “The MNR is a bureaucratic nightmare,” he says. “We’ll be there relying on the members to step up to the bar.” MacLean expects about 175 to 200 people to at-

“The MNR is a bureaucratic nightmare.” tend the conference, which includes ten stewardship councils in this area. He raves about the quality of the speakers attending this year. The morning presentations include: 1) 9:30 - 10 a.m. Patrick Hodge - Forest Health Technical Specialist - presenting The Emerald Ash Borer: Don’t Liquidate Your Forest on a Perceived Threat plus Effects of the Drought on your Woodlot; 2) 10:05 - 10:45 a.m. Dr. Sean Westerveld - Ginseng and Medicinal Herbs Specialist - presenting Medicinal Herbs in Your Woodlot; and 3) 11:15 - 12 p.m. Bill

Beaton - from Loyalist Timber Framing - on Barn Architecture: Restoration and Building with Forest Timbers. “The emerald ash borer is coming,” he says. “Patrick Hodge encourages people to not cut down their ash trees but to treat them for it, building a stronger species.” The optional afternoon field trip to Bloomfield is to see how to restore old barns, from one of the oldest barrel makers (coopers) in Canada, Carriage House Cooperage and also includes a visit to the Gilead Distillery. Those choosing to stay inside can hear more speakers including at 1:15 p.m. Sean Westerfeld on nontimber products like fiddleheads and wild leeks; at 1:45 Shawn Bloom, with further discussion on emerald ash borers, and at 2:15 Bill Goulding will talk on sustainable trails. There will also be 20 to 30 exhibitors with related forest products including bowls, books, walking sticks and axe handles. “Come out and have a good time,” MacLean says. “Learn something.” At the age of 70, he says he is still enjoying learning all the time.

Ambassadors channel their energy and 4-H experiences into recruiting new Members and sharing the 4-H story. Up to six current 4-H members, ages 17-21, are selected annually to represent 4-H Ontario Ambassadors. Ambassadors promote the 4-H Program by attending events across the province as well as other community events. National and International opportunities may arise as well.

multiple talents. But with such large numbers, he says, it is often difficult to schedule performances when all the players are available. The group practises together regularly, performing at various special events including parades and community functions throughout the year. The Lions financial contribution will go toward day-to-day operating costs for the volunteer organization, Whiteman says, which includes expenses such as insurance required to operate as a travelling band as well as equipment and other costs. Fostering a love of music and performance, Lions President Elmore Baitley says the local branch wanted to acknowledge the group for its community contribution. As well, he says, a performance by its members seemed a fitting addition to the weekend festivities. The Citizens Band encourages new members of all skill levels. And with Scarecrow Weekend past, Lions are now preparing for this weekend’s Arts and Crafts Sale, featuring the work of dozens of local artists and artisans available at the Lions Hall.

Food bank in need of community support

EMC News - Stirling - For a select few it was a hypnotic experience as members of the Stirling and District Lions Club celebrated Scarecrow Weekend with lawn decorations, special events and a significant contribution to the Stirling Citizens Band. Hypnotist Richard Cole was on hand last Friday night at the Lions Hall to entertain a crowd of about 100, a day after 150 arrived for dinner at the club’s fund-raising Fish Fry. Lion Glenn Payne says the dinner was a huge success and a perfect start to the weekend activities. Also performing at the hall on Friday was a large contingent from the Stirling Citizens Band, who also received a $1,500 contribution from the local service club. The band took centre stage after Cole wrapped up his show, providing a sampling of the band’s repertoire under the guidance of Conductor Donna Bennett-Sporring. Familiar to many in the area, The Stirling Citizens Band is made up of about 50 musicians, says member Tim Whiteman, and attracts all ages of musicians including several with

EMC News - Stirling - Volunteers at the local food bank have seen a steady increase in traffic in recent months and while a $10,000 Kraft Hockeyville contribution has eased the burden, community donations have virtually dried up since the spring.

“Thank you” We hear or say the words every day but not often enough do they mean as much as this. Want to hear for yourself how much your support of BGHF is appreciated?

And with fewer donations of non-perishable products arriving, says Community Cupboard Chair Heather Bailey, the food bank has been forced to spend thousands on groceries to ensure the needs of those on its client list are met. “We noticed it as soon as it was announced that we’d won Hockeyville and the food bank would be getting $10,000,” Bailey says of the understandable dip in donations, adding the community perception was that the food bank was suddenly in very good shape. But with about 50 families regularly using the service, monthly food expenses can top $1,500, Bailey says. And by the time the Community Cupboard received the Kraft donation recently, more than half the money had already been spent. “We’re extremely grateful to Kraft,” Bailey says of the cash donation as well as the many food drives during related community events, but adds the recent

ber the charitable organization and the help it has provided locally over the years. She notes many of those who visit the food bank are facing temporary financial hardships, but some have been clients for many of the 20 years the Community Cupboard has been in operation in Stirling. “The volunteers here are very understanding,” Bailey says, doing what they can to ease clients’ anxieties as well as filling some of their grocery needs. And the food bank’s location at the end of Station Street provides an ideal outlet, she adds, where both easy access and a level of privacy are offered. And many past users of the food bank, she says, have been among those to make regular contributions. Since its beginnings in the municipally owned Stirling theatre prior to its reopening, the food bank has been in operation here for two decades. However, recent increases of “three or four families a month,” Bailey says, have added to the food bank’s grocery bill. “We just want people to be aware,” she adds, noting the $10,000 donation is not expected to last until spring. “We’d love to get these shelves filled up,” she says.

By Michael J Brethour

EMC Sports - Belleville It took just one goal to defeat the Kingston Frontenacs during Saturday’s skirmish at the Yardmen Arena. Well, one goal and the battling determination of the Bulls’ defensive lineup. A penalty free first period saw one goal when all was said and done as Austen Brassard managed to fire one past Kingston’s net minder to tally the one goal of the evening at 16:29 on the clock in the first stanza. The Belleville Bulls and Kingston Frontenacs battled, bruised and competed on for the remainder of the stanzas, but after the dust cleared Bras-

of the period as overaged goaltender Mike Morrison played a large role in keeping the game within one goal for Kingston. Bulls rookie centreman Niki Petti was dynamite in the faceoff circle, as his line alongside Daniil Zharkov and Aaron Berisha racked up quality scoring chances.

Novice AA go three for three

Chargers trounce Falcons

EMC Sports - The International Truckload Service Novice AA Junior Bulls picked up three wins in as many nights in Lakeshore action last weekend. Saturday in Whitby the Bulls pulled battled to a 5 - 3 victory. Trevor Hoskin led the way with two goals while Corbin Roach, Cooper Matthews and Sami Douglas-

Najem picked up the others. Helpers came from Nathan Woods, Reed Anderson and Matthews. Sunday the Junior Bulls were back home versus Whitby in the back end of the home and home. With a strong first period the Bulls outlasted the Wildcats strong push in the third to come out with another

5 - 3 triumph. Brady Spry picked up the win in net; a hat trick from Hoskin, two from Roach did the job for the Bulls while assists went to Matthews, Roach, Woods and Douglas-Najem. Monday night Kingston came to town where the Bulls pulled off a tight 2 - 1 win. The effects of three games in three nights may have been a fac-

tor but another two goals by Hoskin and strong goaltending by Jacoby Martin were enough to do the job. Assists went to Marcus Asimis and Ethan Geen both with a pair. The Novice AA Bulls go back at it next weekend with three in four nights. In Oshawa Friday, at home versus Clarington Sunday and home to Port Hope Monday.

EMC Sports - The Belleville Hyundai Novice AE team played an exciting game in Peterborough on Saturday and tied the game at 5 - 5. Goals went to Jonathon Doyle (2), Liam Reid, Aaron McCambridge, and Carter Seymour. Assists went to Ryley Muir (3),

Cameron Tompkins, Jacob Gilham, Trent Duncan and Carson Vander Heyden. Cassidy Dobson played a solid game in the net. Sunday was another annihilation against the Oshawa White team, this time on home ice. The Belleville Hyundai Novice AE team

came away with a 10 - 1 win. Cassidy Dobson was in net and kept the game at a large spread. Goals went to Jonathon Doyle (4), Carter Seymour, Joey Coates, Carson Vander Heyden, Tyson Smith, Liam Reid and Aaron McCambridge. Backing

them up on the assists were Carter Seymour (2), Aaron Brown, Cameron Tompkins, Aaron McCambridge, Jacob Gilham and Carson Vander Heyden. The team travels to Uxbridge next Saturday and then host Kingston at home on Sunday.

EMC Sports - The Carpet One Bantam Minor AA Belleville Junior Bulls played in the Scotiabank Cup AA Tournament in Mississauga. Starting Friday, October 26, at noon the Belles tied 1 - 1 against Mt. Clements the only American team in the division. Scoring on the pow-

er play with 1:47 left to play was Jake Hale-Sanders from Cameron Hagerman. Strong between the pipes was Blake Freitag.  The Bulls played again that afternoon versus St. Catharines and the team played very well winning 3 1.  Jack Belanger had a great game scoring twice with as-

sists going to Josh Love and Caleb Nicholson. The second goal was unassisted.  A great powerplay goal came from Cameron Hagerman from Griffen Conger and Nicholas Bartlett.  Netminding duties went to Jayden Haight. The Junior Bulls found themselves needing a final win against Kitchener on the Sat-

urday. The Bulls played hard but lost 3 - 1.  Goaltending duties were by both Blake and Jayden.  The lone goal was credited to Josh Love from Nicholas Bartlett.  The tournament’s most valuable players were given to Cole King (first game), Cameron HaleSanders  (second game) and Jayden Haight (third game).

EMC Sports - The Williams Hotels Belleville Junior Bulls Minor Bantam AE team left no doubt that they came to play their division rivals on Saturday at the Yardmen Arena in Belleville. After two complete periods of solid hockey, the Bulls

With 1:34 remaining in the game, Nolan Parliament buried the puck on a rebound on a shot by Ben Stoliker to put this one away.

Tyler Quance had the shutout. The win doesn’t come without a cost, however, as Lucas Gagne will be out of the lineup for an unspecified amount of time after he received an upper body injury during the game. With the win, the Bulls stand alone in second place in the league with Peterborough remaining on top.

EMC Sports - Brighton The East Northumberland Secondary School (ENSS) Blue Dragons won their 12th consecutive Central Ontario Secondary School Athletic (COSSA) overall cross-country running championship—featuring the best from the Bay of Quinte and Kawartha regions—last week at Goodrich-Loomis Conservation Area. And, just like at the Bay of Quinte meet the week before, the Bayside Red Devils gave the

Dragons a run for the gold. The ENSS team amassed 42 points, on the strength of title performances in midget boys and senior girls while the Bayside squad tallied 35 points, winning in junior boys. Other divisional titles went to Fenelon Falls (senior boys), St. Mary’s Catholic Secondary School of Cobourg (junior girls) and Thomas A. Stewart of Peterborough (midget girls). The top two teams in each division along with the top four individuals

Hydro project gets solid regional support

By Jack Evans

EMC News - Marmora A handful of protesters bravely waved their signs in front of Marmora Municipal Offices Thursday where Hastings County Council was gathering for its October meeting. They remained staunchly opposed to the proposed pumped storage electricity generating project by Northland Power using the former Marmoraton Mining iron ore pit. Despite their arguments, Marmora and Lake Council remains firmly committed to the project. After Thursday’s meeting, it is also heartily endorsed by the entire County of Hastings, plus the County of Peterborough and the cities of Belleville and Quinte West. All had representation at the meeting, which included a tour of the mine pit area and details on how the project would work. John Wright, executive director of Northland, reviewed how the technology has been around for some years and is used widely across the United States and in Europe. Proven as environmentally clean, safe, long lasting and effective, pump and store systems use off-peak (night time) electricity to el-

Following an October 25 meeting of County Council held in the Marmora council chambers, attendees climbed onto a bus and headed out to the mine to tour the site of the proposed Marmora Pumped Storage project. While there, on a perfect autumn day with the former mine in the background, positive input relating to the project was voiced by many, among them Marmora’s Reeve, Terry Clemens; Northland Power personnel, John Wright and Sam Mantenuto; MPP Todd Smith; Hastings County Warden, Rick Phillips; Jay Murray Jones, the Warden of Peterborough County; and Neil Ellis, Mayor of Belleville.

evate the water from a reservoir to a high-rise storage area. The Marmora project,

when activated in daytime, could provide up to 400 megawatts of power for up

to five hours straight during peak electricity use hours, or to accommodate extra loads,

said Wright. It would require hundreds of construction jobs

had no reason to destroy,” added McCann. “We do all this for the community.” But the damage is of a greater concern because of the type of tree vandalized: the butternut, a species protected under the Endangered Species Act. How rare is the butternut? According to a Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR) fact sheet, there are about 13,000 left in Ontario. Not many for a province spanning 1.076 million square kilometres. That’s one for every 82 square kilometres. The urgency to save the

trees has prompted the Ontario Forest Gene Conservation Association to establish a Butternut Conservation Group, and one of its main objectives is to locate diseaseresistant individuals to propagate tree seedlings for planting. “This was a good opportunity to establish an at-risk species in the area,” said Brighton Councillor Craig Kerr, who doubles as chairperson of the Lower Trent Conservation Authority. “Now that’s been wiped out.” According to the MNR web site, the Endangered

Species Act came into effect on June 30, 2008, “making Ontario a North American leader in the protection and recovery of species at risk and their habitats.” And the fines are hefty. In the case of a corporation, a first offender is liable to a fine of not more than $1 million. Individual offenders could be fined up to $250,000, imprisonment for up to a year, or both. The fines double for a second offence. As well, if an offence involves more than one animal, plant or other organism, the number involved multiplies the

maximum fine. According to the latest Northumberland OPP statistics, calls for service relating to mischief incidents are actually down this year compared to the three-year average in the eastern end of the county. To the end of September, police have logged 152 calls in Brighton (45), Trent Hills (77) and Cramahe (30). For the same period, the threeyear average—from 2009 to 2011—is 186. Vandalism is usually committed by adolescent boys between the ages of 10 and 19 and counts for almost half

for up to two years or more to complete the project, and continue to operate with a specialized high-paid staff of up to 40 jobs. The small number of opponents continue to suspect corporate greed, danger of flood disaster and misleading information lie behind the project. Northland officials contend the Marmora pit is a “gem” in terms of allowing an exceptionally high drop of water to generate power (almost five times greater than that of Niagara Falls) and close proximity (eight kilometres) to a major provincial power grid line. Cost of construction would be about $600 million. Hastings County Warden Rick Phillips, Peterborough County Warden Murray Jones, Mayor Neil Ellis of Belleville, Councillor Jim Harrison representing Quinte West, and Prince Edward-Hastings MPP Todd Smith all registered support for the project. The gathering on the edge of the spectacular vista looking over the 700-foot-deep pit, was told that construction could start next year if final approvals by the Ministry of the Environment are timely, and be in service in 2016.

And they are coming to Campbellford District High School (CDHS) as part of a “healthy eating” initiative being offered by the Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge (HKPR) District Health Unit. “The intent of the program is to teach youth participants to prepare simple, healthy meals and snacks as well as to promote resiliency in a fun and engaging manner,” said Kimberly Leadbeater, public health dietitian. The workshops are held every two weeks and include six sessions after school. “We are hoping to get 25 students interested in taking the program,” she explained. A grant for $3,975 from the Campbellford Seymour Community Foundation is helping to make it happen. “We were very fortunate to receive funding from the Foundation which has allowed us to contract Ill Skillz

an international hip-hop team that specializes in youth resiliency,” Leadbeater told EMC. The group will appear at CDHS during an assembly on January 8, 2013, at 1:45 p.m. at the end of the program. “Their focus will be general resiliency,” Leadbeater said. She is being joined by Jennifer Valcamp, a public health promoter and Patricia Stuckless, a health food worker, from health unit for the workshops. “Over the years we’ve found some of the population has lost the ability to prepare meals from scratch just because of the modern convenience of opening a box and using microwaves. We want to teach the students how to prepare simple and easy meals they can enjoy,” Leadbeater explained to EMC. The format will provide the opportunity to address other issues that affect students such as peer pressure, substance misuse and more. “The school is committed to this and thinks this is a great idea,” she said. “Ill Skillz is a way to engage the students. From my perspective if you can engage the youth and make them want to make their own meals and help them see how easy it can be and still be good then it’s a win-win for everyone,” Since 2002, Ill Skillz has actively taken their award winning show and workshops to elementary schools, high schools, and special events to hundreds of thousands in

Ontario, Atlantic Canada, the Arctic, and the U.S. The “highly sought-after” group of young motivational speakers and hip-hop performers are from the Greater Toronto Area. The message they deliver and the show they present reflect their cultures as well as their youth. Their show “The Talk” addresses teenage stressors that include, but are not limited to, drugs and alcohol, peer pressure, racism and education. They discuss “Unlocking your Dreams,” goal setting and creating backup plans. At the high school in Campbellford Carlos Taguba of Ill Skillz will facilitate discussion on finding substitutes for cigarettes and “discuss rerouting youth spending power to positive outlets and help youth discover their passion,” said Leadbeater. Participating students who are non-smokers may find this useful in helping a friend or family member to quit smoking. “As well a spoken word poetry workshop [rap] dealing with body image, mental health and stress during which performances will be recorded and a digital copy will be made available “to inspire them to continue with the art form as a tool to keep respecting and caring for their mind and bodies”. The program starts next month. Students who are interested are invited to contact CDHS Vice-Principal Christine Orton.

Campaign for one Northumberland gearing up By Ray Yurkowski

EMC News - Cobourg Northumberland County councillors are asking residents to help keep their name on the political map. The plea for support comes on the heels of a Federal Electoral Boundaries Commission recommendation to divide the county in half to create the new ridings of Kawartha Lakes-Port Hope-Cobourg and Prince Edward-Quinte West.

With “1Northumberland,” citizens can log on and vote in an online poll and petition, which supports maintaining county boundaries within one federal electoral district. County councillors unanimously approved the plan to provide a way for residents to make their voices heard and the vote tally will be presented at Commission hearings later this month. Economic development

director Dan Borowec explains the challenges at the county level if the proposed changes are given the go-ahead. “We’ve invested a fair amount of time in branding the word, ‘Northumberland,’” he said. “With the proposed changes, the name does not exist and any recognition in the House of Commons or Queen’s Park would be negated.” “Further to that,” he

added. “Having two MPs and two MPPs represent the county would certainly make for some challenges in terms of trying to get some continuity in funding support for the area.” Trent Hills Mayor Hector Macmillan agrees. “The proposed changes will have significant negative impacts on the future prosperity of the county by eliminating the name Northumberland completely from the electoral

map,” he said. “We’re asking people who support the idea of one Northumberland to go online and vote ‘yes,’” added Borowec.

Reality Check:

Sheila Wray Gregoire EMC Lifestyles - When my babies were first born I was home with them fulltime. And babies don’t talk. They may cry, but conversation isn’t their strong point. And so it was that I turned to television. Every day, from 1 p.m. until 5 p.m., my TV was on nonstop. First it was three soap

operas in a row: Days of Our Lives, All My Children, General Hospital. Then, at four, came Oprah. In fact, my TV was on constantly, so that I could hear some voices in my house (and not just in my head). However, I began to notice I was rather melancholy when bedtime came around. Every Thursday night I would wander into my bedroom forlorn. Keith would try to talk me out of my mood, which is never a good idea, because we women like having our moods. And one Thursday, while I was obsessing about my inconsiderate husband, the lightbulb went off. I realized that I was always melancholy on Thursdays because that was the night I watched ER. What a de-


Creeping screens

pressing show! Every week someone died in a car accident, or some child was horrendously abused, or someone lost a limb. It was terrible.    I didn’t want to live consumed with the ugliness or life, so we got rid of our television, cold turkey. I became much happier. I had more time with my girls. I sought out friends for conversation. Life grew bigger. Last week I was at a bloggers’ conference, and this topic came up. I know a bloggers’ conference sounds insane, but I actually get quite a bit of traffic to my blog (I mostly talk marriage and relationships), and I wanted to network with some of the women I know online. One of those women was a younger blogger who was

trying to balance her online community with raising two small children. She asked me what I thought about all of these young moms blogging. Are they ignoring their kids? I replied that I was thankful blogging wasn’t around when my children were young, or I would have been sucked in and it would have taken too much of my time, just like it has now. And at that moment I had another epiphany, just like the one I had that Thursday night 15 years ago. For the last decade and a half I have been so proud of myself for being able to give up television. I realized, though, that over the last few years I have simply traded one vice for another. Yes, I have got-

ten rid of the TV. But blogs, and Facebook, and Twitter and Pinterest have eaten up just as much time—if not more. Technology creeps. We spend so much time in front of screens that we ignore those we love. Men play on video games until the wee hours of the morning, leaving wives wondering if their husbands still have libidos. Women spend so much time talking to pseudo-friends on Facebook that their real live families feel ignored. And teens create communities on their computers, not in their living rooms. I can’t quit the online world cold turkey because it’s my job. So my only recourse, over the last few years, has been to head

outdoors. When our family needs to connect, we go walking or hiking or biking or birding or camping. We get out, where the computer can’t touch us. Yet I see another threat on the horizon. Currently I have a Blackberry, and I’ve always found it a little cumbersome to check things online. But I’m due for another free phone upgrade, and I’ve been tempted toward an iPhone. I think, though, that I may say no. I don’t want technology to follow me even when I’m walking and hiking and birding and camping. I still need time just with my family. I hope this time I can keep my resolve. Find Sheila (and her blog) at <>.

The Good Earth:

Composting “diseased” leaves the old-time farmers gave to hay. There was an understanding that folks who sold their hay for off-farm use were slowly depleting the soil in which it grew. The next time you’re raking up this fall’s offerings, think about how much stuff was needed to make all of those leaves.  Without get-

ting into a lot of details, it should be clear that leaves are organic matter. I am not aware of any agronomist or hortulan who doesn’t advocate returning organic matter to the soil. So, it does wonder me when I see bags of them setting on the side of the curb waiting for the municipality to trundle

them off to a big composting centre, where other, cleverer people can use them on their estates. (Check the archives of this newspaper to find columns about the benefits of composting and how to make leaf mould.) There are concerns about which leaves you can use as mulch, which you can use if composted and those you should not use at all. Perhaps the most common concern centres around black walnut (Juglans nigra) and to a lesser extent butternut (J.cinerea.) and other walnuts such as Persian, Carpathian and English which are grafted onto black walnut root stock. These trees will secrete juglone from their roots into the soil. Most folks with walnuts growing in their area have already experienced the natural selection process caused by the juglone.  At our home, we watched a musk rose; a Makamik crab-apple and a French hybrid lilac succumb. The plants that remain and the new ones we plant (carefully researched) are tolerant to this toxin.  From that perspective, there is

Lights Galore & Home Decor


EMC Lifestyles - We might think that the process of creating a leaf out of nothing is either magic or divine but we know that its components came from somewhere. Simple answer: they came from this good earth which sustains us. We should be giving leaves as much consideration as

Largest lighting showroom in the area

no problem with mulching the fallen leaves directly into the surrounding flowerbeds or onto the lawn. We do need to be careful if we are using it in the veggie patches as the solanum group (potatoes, tomatoes, eggplant) are very sensitive. In fact, one of the tests for “safe” walnut leaf compost is to pop a few tomato seedlings into it. Two to four weeks in a hot compost pile is enough to render it safe. There are two other diseases that have been showing up more recently, tar spot and anthracnose, both caused by different fungi. Tar spot can infect quite a few different plants, willow, holly and goldenrod, as well as the maples where it is most noticeable. Tar spot looks like a black blob of tar on the surface of the leaf. It has been around for a very long time in North America and has been in our cities as long as we have had cities. With the popularity of Norway maples and its attendant fungus which produces very large blobs, tar spot has gained a lot more attention. High heat composts will kill the fungus but most of us don’t have compost piles that reach those temperatures. When you compost, remember to turn the pile regularly so that all of the leaf material gets a turn at the hot spot in the centre. Collecting infected leaves only works if the entire neighbourhood gets in on the act. In reality, there is not much you can do; but fortunately, it is rare that

Dan Clost a tree will succumb to this fungus. So compost these leaves as you would any other. Concentrate on providing your tree with good cultural conditions. Anthracnose is another noticeable fungus that is appearing on maple, ash and oaks.  Look for brown spots or areas on leaves and occasional curling. Leaf scorch is often mistaken for this and vice versa. Scorch usually begins uniformly along the margins and between veins: anthracnose begins on the veins and moves outward.  The same codicils for composting tar spotted leaves apply here. Are there any diseases that preclude us from composting leaves?  There is no easy answer; Internet advice is split. The educational sites, such as those from universities and the Composting Council of Canada (CCC) don’t say, “No.” They do say that the pile must get hot enough. (Use a meat thermometer.) Many grass roots organisations, including the CCC, have excellent information on their web sites on how to make good compost.

Attending the Toronto Police Games at the Rogers Centre By John M. Smith

EMC Lifestyles - My wife and I recently spent a Saturday in Toronto, attending the Toronto Police Games at the Rogers Centre. After all, our son (actually my stepson), Warren, was a participant in the relay obstacle course event, and his Ontario Power Generation (OPG) team emerged as victors. This was the 130th annual Toronto Police Games, and the last 20 of these events have been held at the Rogers Centre. The doors opened for this year’s event at 1 p.m., and tickets cost $15. There was even a deal with parking, for it usually would cost $20 to park at the Rogers Centre, but it was reduced to a more reasonable $8 for this special event. Proceeds from the afternoon’s activities went into the Service’s Widows and Orphans Fund. The host of this year’s event was CTV’s news anchor Ken Shaw. There were live bands performing before and after the games.

The Toronto Argonauts cheerleaders were also a part of the show, and along with the athletic events that took place, including highly competitive tugs of war and relays, there were also some traditional components, including a march past parade and a display of a variety of police vehicles and equipment. This year, the ultimate K-9 unit was a part of the spectacle, as well as a mounted ceremonial guard, and the service’s Pipe Band, which was celebrating its 100th birthday. At the beginning of the show, some officers rappelled from the roof of the building onto the stadium playing field itself, carrying the Canadian flag. During the show, in between the athletic events, some skilled dogs performed—catching Frisbees—and completing an obstacle course of their own. One entertaining dog “wiped out” when he leaped to catch a Frisbee, for his trainer had hurled it near a speaker, and the determined

dog had jumped right into the speaker in an attempt to catch it! However, the dog bounced right back up, unharmed, and pursued the next thrown Frisbee. This Toronto Police Amateur Athletic Association event went beyond just having competitors from the police force itself, for there were also teams representing the military police, emergency services (EMS), nuclear response force (OPG), the media (coached by Ben Johnson), and even a group of students from Centennial College. At the end of the day, the Toronto Police emerged as the victors in the tug of war (defeating the military police in the final), and the OPG group defeated the Toronto Police team in the final of the relay obstacle course. During this latter event, individual team members raced around a course that included scaling a six-foothigh wall, carrying heavy bar bells for a particular distance, doing some fancy footwork by stepping through a rope ladder laid out on the ground, tugging and pulling a heavy object on a rope for a designated distance, zigzagging around a series of pylons, ascending

and descending a sloped area, and constantly rushing, in a near frenzy, trying to beat the opponent and achieving the best time. As soon as one member of a team completed the rigorous course, another began it, and the first team of four members that completed the course (providing they hadn’t lost time by getting penalties along the route) won! Since there were qualifying runs that led up to the final, the OPG team competed in this event three times that afternoon, and our son ran the lead portion (the first competitor on the course) all three times. After the victory, we went down

Rapelling from the roof with the flag.

onto the field, where we met the other team members, including Lindsay Garbatt, the former featherweight and junior lightweight boxing champ (who actually fought and won a match, back in 2008, at our very own Quinte Sports Centre). We were, of course, very proud of Warren and the team’s accomplishment; his wife, Dana, and their young son, Fin (less than nine months old), were also there

to cheer him on. After the competition was over, we all went out to dinner together, to celebrate. The Toronto Police Games didn’t attract a humungous crowd, so you could certainly get tickets if you wanted to check it out for yourself in the future. You’ll then discover that you can sit wherever you want (no reserved seating). For us, it proved to be an entertaining afternoon.
