EMC News - Belleville The friendly city remembered and honoured the fallen. Last Sunday’s Remembrance Day’s celebrations at the Belleville Cenotaph is what organizers described as possibly the largest crowd that has come to honour the soldiers that gave so much in the conflicts around the globe to protect the freedoms and rights we almost take for granted on a daily basis. Mayor Neil Ellis recognized the supporting crowd’s might, noting that as a son of a World War II veteran walking in the Remembrance Day Parade for many years, Sunday’s number of citizens presented a reason to pause. “Today I can honestly say, even as a childhood memory and being a mayor of this city, this is the largest crowd I have ever seen here and that speaks volumes to-

wards the thankfulness of everybody here,” said Ellis to the gathered crowd of roughly 1,000 veterans, current serving military, cadets and supporting citizens present. Indeed whether it was the balmy unseasonable weather or simply a renewed patriotism for the residents of the friendly city is unknown but the fact remained that barely any room was left on the cenotaph grounds for more members of the public to watch Remembrance Day unfold. Pastor Ian Robb highlighted the enormity of the sacrifice that more that 117,000 Canadian soldiers made for the rest of the population today, even using a quote from John F. Kennedy facing the Cuban Missile Crisis which Robb deemed apt for the reflections of the Remembrance Day service in Belleville. “Our goal is not the vicPlease see “Reflecting” on page 3

Outpatient Rehabilitation Day Hospital dedicated By Michael J Brethour

EMC News - Belleville The QHC Out Patient Rehabilitation Day Hospital name is now law. Well, at least there is “law” behind the name after a dedication ceremony last Thursday evening recognizing the contributions of the Bonn Law office to the Belleville General Hospital Foundation (BGHF) and Quinte Health Care (QHC). “Many of our clients are treated at Belleville General Hospital and we see first hand the excellent care and treatment they are given,” says Kris Bonn, partner of Bonn Law. “While the great people at BGH are doing what they can, they need




resources and equipment to continue providing top level care to the community. We are proud to partner with BGH and help to provide great quality health care in our community.” Mary Clare Egberts, president and CEO of QHC, said the dedication honouring the generosity of Bonn Law is in line with the five-year strategic plan of the healthcare corporation. “One of our strategic values is that we all help provide healthcare. I know we often think of that in terms of the hospital family with the physicians and the staff all helping to provide care, but what you guys are demonstrating here this evening

is that it takes much more than just our internal family to support this hospital. We also rely on our donors and support from great organizations like Bonn Law. It is a with combined effort and you guys as our community partners that we will be able to provide the best care to our patients so thank you for that,” said Egberts. She added that QHC is privileged to be working with Bonn Law. A placard denoting the Outpatient Rehabilitation Day Hospital and the dedication to Bonn Law Office was unveiled after the short ceremony attended by roughly 50 hospital staff, Please see “Placard” on page 3

Health unit seeks to reach right audience By Jack Evans

EMC News - Belleville The campaign to promote cervical screening (pap test) to prevent cervical cancer is a typical case of problems in reaching the right audience for the Hastings and Prince Edward Counties Health Unit. After unit staffer Stephanie McFaul made a presentation on recent changes in provincial guidelines, Medical Officer of Health Dr. Richard Schabas commented that the particularly extreme form of the virus which leads to the disease is most common in aborigine populations in North America and in immigrants from

Third World or developing nations. “These are the people most at risk and yet they are the ones we have trouble convincing to take part in regular tests,” he said. The basic form of the virus though is “very common,” said McFaul, and only certain strains, or in certain cases result in it becoming cancerous and infecting the cervix. She said that projections for the current year in Ontario are 550 diagnoses, of which about 150 will prove fatal. The virus can show up in both male and female persons at early ages, and while most are benign, or are stabilized by the body

itself, a few become malicious. But they can take up to 10 or 15 years to develop and show no signs, unless they are detected and identified as threatening by the simple test. That test is now recommended for almost all females from the age of 21 or even younger if they are sexually active in any way, including same sex. The test should also be taken every three years until age 70 if the virus is present. “The virus is easily transferable,” McFaul stressed. In other business, members discussed progress on the major expan-

sion. Chair Beth Campbell said she was surprised and pleased at the response of health unit staff members at the first “visioning” session with the architect firm hired by the board last month. “I expected a handful of people and very few suggestions,” she said. “But there was a large turnout and dozens of ideas and concerns.” She said more visioning

sessions are being held to whittle down the ideas to fit a reasonable project. Member Dan McCaw quipped that one new feature he had heard about in some new projects was a “power snooze” room and wondered if that might be included. The issue sparked a humourous exchange around the table. McCaw also flagged concern at the continu-

ing number of violations in cigarette sales. The monthly report showed 12 violations of selling to minors from Trenton to Deseronto and Picton to Bancroft. There were also two violations of food service safety at one Belleville establishment. Board staff confirmed that the problem has since been cleaned up.

EMC Entertainment - Belleville - Customers in stores may not want to hear Christmas music yet, but members of the Belleville Choral Society have been at it for several weeks already. In what members agree is one of the most challenging programs of music they have ever undertaken, they have been working diligently under music director Mirijam Spoelstra for their first concert under her direction since taking over earlier in the year. Spoelstra has developed a program with strong international content which will see the choir singing in several different languages, including Latin, French, Italian, Spanish, Polish and even a lively and rhythmical Zulu folk song sung in that language. The concert, called Christmas Around the World, Through the Ages, is Sunday, December 2, at 3 p.m. Tickets are $20 for adults, $5 for youth ages six through 18, available in advance at St. Michael’s Church office, the Quinte Arts Council office or at the door on December 2.

tory of might, but the vindication of right. Not peace at the expense of freedom, but both peace and freedom here in this hemisphere and we hope around the world, God willing that goal will be achieved,” related Robb. Prince Edward Hastings MP Daryl Kramp noted that the freedoms we enjoy today, are not created by the various professions utilizing them today, rather they were bought and paid for by the efforts of our soldiers in the great wars. “Today we give pause to reflect on those that have indeed made the ultimate sacrifice. Their unwavering bravery has made all Canadians proud and free,” said Kramp.

PRISM verification continues to call homes for database By Kate Everson

EMC News - Quinte West - The fourth annual PRISM-911 verification is almost complete. “We will keep calling un-

til the end of November,” said Ed Woods, manager of IT and GIS Services. “If they don’t answer, it’s the best we can do.” The city has verified over

50 per cent of its PRISM telephone database. “The verification rates have significantly improved over the years as public awareness increases,” Woods

added. This year the city averaged over 570 verifications a night during the first 13 nights. The goal is to match or exceed last year’s total of

Amica at Quinte Gardens Christmas Bazaar

86 per cent verification of the PRISM database. This database is used by the city in case or emergency. Homes in any or all areas of the city can be immediately notified of events such as a boil water advisory or any danger to the public. Mayor John Williams suggested the base could also take advantage of the system. Woods said they have their own system in place. Woods noted that people can check to see that their phone number and address are accurate through the link from the city web site, <>, at any time. The city is also involved in a security network audit and will be introducing new IT policies for staff in November with stricter password access, password change rotation and recording of public access. The $6,000 audit will mean an upgrade for the system. “Social media is the biggest weakness,” Woods noted. “It can generate a

virus and malware on the system.” The city is currently being audited by Microsoft Canada for the various Microsoft licences the city’s administration uses. The city holds hundreds of licences for various software programs. Microsoft randomly selects businesses and municipalities for a detailed audit review. “The city is awaiting the final report from Microsoft on the audit but has received preliminary comment that our audit is one of the best that has been seen in the province,” Woods said. He added that Microsoft is awaiting confirmation from Insight, the Microsoft vendor, about a server standard licence. This is the second time the city has been questioned about software licensing. In 2000 the RCMP (MS licensing comes under federal law) visited the city and wanted to review the licensing records. Their review showed full compliance for software licensing.

EMC News - Quinte West - A noise exemption fee of $100 has been approved by the Corporate and Financial Services Committee. Virginia LaTour, deputy-city clerk, said this is the first time a noise exemption has been requested and the city had no fee to address the request. “It is estimated that a fee of $100 would accommodate the administrative time involved and has been calculated based on two hours of staff time,” she said. Paul Kyte said the staff report had a lack of information. DonnaLee Craig, city clerk, said the bylaw imposes noise restrictions but it sometimes needs an exemption for an event or construction. Kyte asked if the request specified a specific time for the exemption. Sally Freeman wanted to know if the neighbours had been notified. Craig said the neighbours would be notified as part of the process. Terry Cassidy asked if the event was a concert and if this exemption allowed them to “crank it up” if they felt like it. “What happens to somebody who lives nearby?” he asked. CAO Gary Dyke said there would be time parameters put on and the type of noise defined. He said it could be enforced by the OPP once there are set fines. Research was conducted with five other municipalities regarding fees for noise exemptions. Ottawa charges $50, Toronto $100, Kingston $106, Mississauga $160 and Colborne $300. Committee approved of the noise bylaw exemption.

Firefighters’ staches” help Movember madness grow

Apples at the Belleville Farmers’ Market

By Stephen Petrick

The Tyendinaga Fire Department team is doing pretty good, according to the Canadian site, <www.> . As of November 11, the team was the 17th best firefighting team out of more than 200, as part of the Great Canadian Fire Challenge. The team had raised just short of $1,500 by the end of the weekend. That money was solicited from family and friends, with help of social media. It will go to Prostate Cancer Canada. While raising money is rewarding on its own, there’s something fun and personable about this campaign, according to some of the firefighters participating. “It gets everybody in-

volved,” said Brad Barker, captain of the Tyendinaga team. He was among a group of men with a fair bit of fuzz on his face when the volunteers met for training last Thursday. “People see your moustache out in the community so they know you’re doing your part and raising funds.” Naturally, the topic of facial hair can lead to a few laughs among men. When asked whether the wives and girlfriends of the firefighters saw the moustaches as a problem, Mike Murphy said bluntly, “not anymore,” triggering laughter throughout the station. Barker said, “My fiancé doesn’t mind it. “I haven’t had any negative feedback [after starting the campaign] but people might dispute that,” he added tongue in cheek. Another firefighter, Andy Bonnin, had the group roaring in laughter. “I’m handsome enough to rock a moustache, but some of these other guys? I don’t know.” But turning serious, he said Movember is a great event for the firefighters to participate in. “It’s an outward way of expressing what you’re do-

ing,” he said. “It’s not like wearing a pink T-shirt or a ribbon. It’s something that’s transplanted. You can’t take it off.”

EMC News - Tyendinaga Township - Some firefighters here are using “handlebars” to raise money amid the madness that is Movember. The term “handlebars” refers to a type of moustache in which the hair extends from the tip of the lips down to the chin in thin, parallel vertical lines. Nineteen volunteer members of the Tyendinaga Township Fire Department are growing the moustaches as part of Movember, a wildly popular fund raiser for prostate cancer and other men’s health issues. The Movember campaign asks men to grow moustaches during November to show their support for the cause. It’s become popular around the world as the web site <> contains links to fund raisers in not only Canada, but the United States, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.

Dear Editor, The self-destruction of the GOP party we have come to know and dislike has begun in earnest. In a radio interview this a.m. on CBC Radio1, a member of the GOP (Tea Party) said the loss of the election by Mr. Romney to the president was not the fault of the Tea Party, clearly separating themselves from the GOP. The USA will soon come to experience in the Congress, a minority government composed of the Democrats, the new GOP Party, and the Tea Party, none of whom carries a majority. Mr. Baehnor stated in his interview that the GOP will be nice if the Democrats will, admitting that they were

disgusting the last four years trying to roadblock any and all legislation regardless of the benefit to the citizens of that country. Their goal was to get the White House back in 2008 and thankfully they failed miserably. I can see a Democrat and new GOP coalition. In 2016 will there be three Presidential candidates, Democrat, new GOP and Tea Party. Doesn’t this bring back the pleasant memories of the Conservative Party and the Reform Party keeping Mr. Chretien in power as long as he was because separated they couldn’t get enough seats to matter. The good old GOP white boys club trying in earnest

to subjugate women back to the 1950s, taking care of the rich folk and never bothering to evolve themselves into a party that truly reflects the ethnical makeup of the USA has lost an election by clearly ignoring 70 per cent of its population. What did they think, that they would go along for the ride? Definitely the U.S. political news has become the area of interest to keep upto-date on. Good old boring Prime Minister Harper and the Conservatives who have made Canada probably the most successful country in the world continues to move us forward. Thank God I’m a Canadian living in Canada. Garry Hershberg, Havelock

So what’s happening on Veteran’s Way?

doing the right thing. In my experience, a disruption of this magnitude in a council chamber should call for intervention by the CAO who, for whatever reason, decided to sit silently through the outburst. This community, really no community, should tolerate a councillor who exhibits such contempt for council protocol and arrogantly places his personal agenda ahead of his responsibility to the residents he serves. At the end of term, I don’t believe any councillor demonstrating this level of arrogance and self importance will be able to claim—over four years—any significant contribution to the town. Let’s make sure he won’t be back.

tially deadly situation was averted. A couple of curious teenagers happening on the scene on the way to school could easily have turned the morning into a tragedy. There is no doubt that both men, without hesitation, acted in the moment and in the best interest of the town. In plain English … they did the right thing. In most communities they would be publicly commended for their actions. It is so disappointing that in Brighton these two acts of gallantry were ruthlessly criticized in a public council meeting by a councillor whose only commitment is to his ego. It was upsetting to watch an elected member of our council unleash such an unwarranted, disrespectful, verbal attack on our mayor and one of our residents for

Dear Editor, The article “Committee members pave the way for the next executive” caught my eye as the name of the committee and its purpose was not mentioned until I read the article. This article probably has been passed over by many residents of the Brighton area. It is noted in paragraph seven, “Earlier this year, Rittwage proposed the idea for the new committee at a municipal council meeting … including that he met with some of the stakeholders including the Chamber of Commerce, DBIA and the Brighton Legion for the proposed project” and in para-

graph eight, “They all have a vision of what they would like to see on Veteran’s Way in the future.” It appears to me that the Municipality of Brighton and its residents, who are stakeholders, have not been polled for their input on what should happen to Veteran’s Way. A festival plaza? What is this? And does that mean bringing up the closure of Veteran’s Way to traffic, yet again? We need a heads up on this topic. And exactly, what does a festival plaza on Veteran’s Way mean for industry on “the new 50-acre industrial development site”? Before the not yet newly

formed committee is formed, I believe the residents of the municipality of Brighton should be informed, via a meeting with Councillors Rittwage, Rowley and the stakeholders Councillor Rittwage spoke with earlier this year to pose their questions and concerns regarding a festival plaza on Veteran’s Way. What will it be used for? How big will it be? Will it encompass the park? It is part of Phase 2 of the Legion plan? And most important to the residents of Brighton, is there a plan to close Veteran’s Way to traffic? Please keep your voters informed. Cheryl Langevin, Brighton

The loss of centrality EMC Editorial - In this interval of blessed tranquillity between the titanic struggle to choose the next president of the “world’s greatest nation” (same guy as last time), and the world-shaking choice of the next leader of the “Middle (Xi Jinping, Gwynne Dyer Kingdom” but it’s still officially secret for a few more days), a delicious moment of sheer silliness. The British Broadcasting Corporation has banned a science program because it might trigger an interstellar invasion. They would not normally ban a program made by Brian Cox. He is a jewel in the BBC’s crown: a particle physicist with rock-star appeal—he played in two semiprofessional bands, and in the right light he looks like a younger Steven Tyler— who can also communicate with ordinary human beings. They just forbade him to make the episode of Stargazing Live in which he planned to send a message to the aliens. Cox wanted to point the Jodrell Bank radio telescope at a recently discovered planet circling another star, in the hope of making contact with an alien civilisation. The BBC executives refused to let him do it, on the grounds that since no one knew what might happen, it could be in breach of “health and safety” guidelines. Cox, a serious scientist, knew exactly what would happen: nothing. Even if there are hostile aliens out there, space is so vast that light from the nearest star, travelling at 300,000 kilometres per second (186,000 miles per second), takes four years to reach us. He was just doing his bit in the centuries-long scientific campaign to convince people that they are not at the centre of everything. The BBC “suits,” who do think that they are at the centre of everything, weren’t having any of that. If there are aliens out there, and they find out we are here, their first reaction will probably be to come here and eat our children. And then the BBC will get blamed for it. Sorry, Brian. Drop the radio telescope and step away from it slowly. The suits richly deserve the derision that has come their way, but if there really is life elsewhere, and even perhaps intelligent life, then we aren’t at the centre of anything any more. We are, as Douglas Adams once put it in The Hitch-Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, “far out in the un-

charted backwaters of the unfashionable end of the western spiral arm of the Galaxy.” We used to believe that the whole universe literally revolved around us. Then came Copernicus. But we went on believing that we are very special. We look like other animals, but we are so special that we don’t cease to exist when we die. We give the universe meaning just by being alive A bit at the time, however, science has been destroying all of our traditional ideas about our own centrality. And here comes another blow. In a universe with trillions of stars, it was always less presumptuous to assume that we are not unique than to insist that we are. But just twenty years ago there was no evidence to show that other stars actually do have planets, let alone that some of those planets harbour life. We now know of the existence of some 800 “exoplanets,” and the number is doubling every year or so. Most of these planets are gas giants like Jupiter or Saturn, not at all like Earth, simply because the giants are easier to detect. But what we have really been looking for is planets like our own. We know that life thrives here. The astronomers at the European Southern Observatory in Chile have now found such a planet. It is called HD 40307g, and it orbits a small orange-coloured sun 42 light-years from here. The planet is rocky, like Earth, and it orbits its star at a distance where the temperature allows water to exist as a liquid. It is certainly a candidate for life. In the past decade we have learned that most stars have planets, and that they typically have lots of them. HD 40307 has six planets orbiting at different distances, at least one of which (HD40307g) is in the “Goldilocks” zone. There are between 200 billion and 400 billion stars in our home galaxy, the Milky Way, and probably at least as many planets. If only one in a hundred of those planets harbours life, which is likely to be an underestimate, then there are two billion living planets. We are not unique and special. We are as common as dirt. Douglas Adams also wrote: “If life is going to exist in a Universe of this size, then the one thing it cannot afford to have is a sense of proportion.” But we are gradually acquiring exactly that, and it doesn’t really hurt. It is possible to be aware of your own cosmic insignificance and still love your children. Even though they are without significance too.

Letter to the editor

Promoting propaganda

Dear Editor, In Mr. Dyer’s article “The one-state solution,” he continues his pattern of promoting the propaganda war against Israel which looks for any story line that could lead to the destruction of Israel as a Jewish state without commenting that the idea of one, non-Jewish state is the “Arabic” stated aim of the Palestinian side which differs from the “English” stated aim which is the “two state solution.” Mr. Dyer ignores the fact that Palestinians living in Israel as Israeli citizens have full rights. His comment to the contrary is a blatant lie. Mr. Dyer also ignores the possibility that Jews as citizens in a new state of Palestine could theoretically have the same rights as Palestinians living as citizens in Israel enjoy today. In regards to the issue of Palestinian refugees, Mr. Dyer continues to ignore the following inconvenient facts: 1 - After World War II, the British governors of Palestine, under International mandate promised that Jewish and Arab states would share the territory. In 1947 the UN approved a two-state partition, which the Jews accepted and the Arabs did not. On May 14, 1948, Israel declared independence. Immediately the armies of Egypt, Syria, Transjordan, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia and Iraq invaded. The secretary general of the Arab League, Abdul Rahman Hassan Azzam, had predicted this would be a massacre, “a war of elimination.” Soon Israel turned back the invaders and secured its territory (though

not all of Jerusalem.) 2 - In the 1948 war the Arab refugees were encouraged to leave Israel by Arab leaders promising to purge the land of Jews. Sixty-eight per cent left (many in fear of retaliation by their own brethren, the Arabs), without ever seeing an Israeli soldier. The ones who stayed were afforded the same peace, civility, and citizenship rights as everyone else. 3 - The number of Arab refugees who left Israel in 1948 is estimated to be around 630,000. The number of Jewish refugees from Arab lands is estimated to be the same. The Jewish refugees were forced to flee from Arab lands because of Arab brutality, persecution and pogroms. Arab refugees were intentionally not absorbed or integrated into the Arab lands to which they fled, despite the vast Arab territory. Out of the 100,000,000 refugees since World War II, theirs is the only refugee group in the world that has never been absorbed or integrated into their own people’s lands. Jewish refugees were completely absorbed into Israel, a country no larger than the state of New Jersey. The Palestinians can’t win the war using the Arab military, so the focus is on winning the propaganda war, and Mr. Dyer is a participant on the Palestinian side, whether he realizes it or not. Oscar Zimmerman, Brighton

A little less notice please By Terry Bush

EMC Editorial - I can’t count the number of times people have emailed or phoned in September about an event happening in November. My usual response to their generosity in giving us lots of lead time is this, “Please let us know a week or two in advance. Otherwise we’ll forget about it or lose it in the hundred emails that come in every day.” As most of our reporters are middle-aged and by that I mean planning on living to a ripe old age of 115 or so, people need to realize there are all kinds of thoughts bouncing around in our craniums at any given time. A lifetime’s worth. Because there are so many things flying around in there, there’s a very good chance your event might not end up in a location where it’s readily accessible. It could end up being buried under a month’s worth of random thoughts. For that reason, I always write things down, especially after listening to lectures from my very organized wife and my mother before her. If either of them has a suggestion on how to find the notebooks and scrap pieces of paper I write things down on, I’d certainly love to hear it. The provincial government also needs to take this into consideration when they send out renewal forms for vehicle licence tags and driver’s licences. This year mine arrived the first week of October. While a man not redoing his driveway and lawn might have jumped right on that, I was not that man. The notices were put in a safe place, which to me means on the bed in the spare bedroom where it can serve as a reminder each time I dump a load of laundry on the bed to be folded. It’s a good system. However, my wife doesn’t share my enthusiasm for a hermit’s lifestyle and company sometimes comes calling. That means my filing system is relegated to a box, drawer or pile somewhere out of sight. If I don’t retrieve it as soon as company leaves, usually it’s lost. That’s what happened again this year, like so many others. Ruby Wallwork can attest to my dilemma. It became a running joke each year when she worked at the Licence Bureau in Stirling. I’d walk in and she’d wish me a happy birthday or belated happy birthday as she took my forms. She had a 95 per cent chance of being right. Ruby has since retired but I think I’ve found another kind soul with the same laid back approach. On Friday while heading home from work, I came upon a RIDE program and after a bit of small talk, the officer asked if I had a birthday coming up. “Why yes,” I said, as I figured out the officers were also looking at licence stickers and had seen mine as my truck pulled in. “Thanks for reminding me,” I said smiling. “That’s what we’re here for,” Jeff returned. “That’s what we’re here for!” Those words were music to my ears and there were two other officers on hand to serve as witnesses. This will really take the burden off me from here on in. If the OPP are there to remind me to purchase my licence stickers each year, that’s one less thing for me to worry about. Hopefully they’re not as forgetful as I am because that could cost me money. The next day I attempted to renew my licence but Service Ontario doesn’t seem to be open on Saturdays. Sunday was out for sure, so on Monday I let work know I’d be a little late coming in because I was running out of time and had to get this taken care of. Much to my chagrin, Service Ontario was once again out of service. Apparently even though Remembrance Day isn’t a holiday in this province, it’s a holiday for some. If the gigantic master computer isn’t online in the Big Smoke or wherever it’s located, there isn’t much chance that the little Service Ontario outlets can open for business. So now I have questions … as I always do. If Remembrance Day isn’t a holiday, then why do some provincial government type folks get to take Monday off for Remembrance Day when the day falls on a Sunday? For that matter, why does a bank that doesn’t open on Sunday get to close on Monday for a holiday that doesn’t exist. Same thing for Service Ontario. Even the schools were open on Monday and they’re closed for 90 days in any given year. In this day and age when most of us work and shop seven days per week, isn’t this a little silly? What’s even more ridiculous is the fact that Remembrance Day isn’t a holiday across the country. There are relatively few veterans left from World War II but given the recent deployments of our forces around the world, we certainly won’t lack for veterans in the immediate future. While the Harper government may be trying to brand itself as a promoter of Canada’s military heritage, given all the recent hoopla surrounding the War of 1812 and the renaming of our Armed Forces, this appears to be a provincial matter; a holiday in some provinces but not others. So Dalton, given that your legacy may have a certain odour about it in the years to come, why not make a last ditch effort to save some face by declaring November 11 a stat holiday. It’s not like the opposition parties are going to have a chance to block you, given the current state of affairs in Ontario. And chances are they won’t do anything when Queen’s Park gets back to business with an election around the corner. Wouldn’t it be great if everyone could attend Remembrance Day services instead of just a select few. Belleville EMC - Thursday, November 15, 2012

What will Obama do for an encore? Dear Editor, I look at the re-election of Barack Obama as a case of that country’s irreconcilable differences. It almost looks like the United States needs to be split into two countries. One could surmise that the east and west coast states obviously have voted to become a Marxist jurisdiction. It could be called Soviet Amerika. The other half of the country is America’s heartland that still wants to recapture the freemarket system, smaller government and the pursuit of the American dream. Obama retaining the White House for the next four years means the electorate is not concerned with extremely high unemployment

(23 million looking for jobs) and a dangerously high deficit of $16 trillion. This kind of reality conjures thoughts of seeing people rioting in the streets just like Greece because of the lack of health care benefits and the termination of pension cheques because of fiscal disaster. A bleak outlook but by that time they’ll have run over the financial cliff. In other words the U.S. is heading down the road toward mediocrity—a country that will soon have no more influence in the world than say, Denmark. With its financial system in chaos, America will be unable to call on its military to defend itself from enemies. It’s a scary thought not only for the U.S. but for

all of the world’s democratic countries. However, all those admirers of Obama and his dishonesty will still be trying to get in line to march with him toward that promised socialist Utopia. Although Obama won the election, his hands will be tied for the next term because the Republicans still rule the House of Representatives. Even his so-called charisma won’t allow him to get any of his questionable socialist doctrine through passage. So it will be more golf and Hollywood social parties for Obama but far fewer opportunities for the American public. Rolly Ethier, Campbellford

Dear Editor, Your editorial really hit home with me. I have had these same thoughts and opinions. What a concept, actually asking straight questions and getting a straight answer in reply. I have had it up to here with politicians afraid to talk to the media, scientists muzzled and our elected representative told how to vote every time. I have a solution and it is to get Dean, Rick and Daryl to sit as independents. All of a sudden they would get their power back. They would be courted by the rest and would be able to vote their conscience. Any politician with the guts to do it can count on our vote next time to get re-elected. Pretty soon other politicians might get some

backbone and do the same. I’m convinced the party system is the problem. With enough independents they could start to set the agenda and we would have our democracy back. The PM is just an elected representative from a riding just like ours. What

makes him think he gets to act like a dictator. The time has come to take back some of that power. Let’s schedule a town hall meeting with our elected representative and get some real answers. Kurt Crist, Consecon

Dear Editor, A letter to Rick Norlock. I would like to receive a copy of the China-Canada Trade Agreement so I can read for myself its contents. Will this be debated in Parliament before it is signed? Does the agreement have a 15-year notice to cancel this agreement clause? Is it true that a Chinese business can sue Canada if we

do not allow that business to operate in Canada? In a related issue, is it true that American companies have successfully sued Canada for not earning the profits they forecast they would earn if they operated in Canada?

Let’s have that town hall meeting

Info please, Mr. Norlock

IF YOU WORK IN ONTARIO, THIS IS YOUR FIGHT. On September 11, 2012, the Ontario Liberal government passed Bill 115, the Putting Students First Act, 2012.

Bill 115 is undemocratic, unconstitutional, and unprecedented. • It takes away the democratic rights of teachers and education professionals to bargain collectively. • It places the government beyond the reach of the Ontario Human Rights Code, the Ontario Labour Relations Act, and even the courts. • It takes local decision-making away from school boards and puts it in the hands of the provincial government. That’s why we’re standing against Bill 115. It sets a dangerous precedent for all Ontarians. In fact, the government has already threatened other public sector workers with similar legislation. As teachers, we teach your children to stand up for their principles. Today, we ask you to do the same.

What can you do to help? Join us in standing up for democratic rights. Let your MPP know that Bill 115 must be repealed.

The real story behind the undead

By Jack Evans

EMC News - Belleville The real “undead” are not vampires or zombies, says the Heart and Stroke Foundation. They are survivors of heart attacks or strokes which would have claimed their lives except for timely application of cardio-pulmonary resuscitation (CPR).

This has led to the foundation’s recent campaign to promote CPR training: “CPR makes you undead.” The campaign seemed to have worked for the Quinte branch of the Heart and Stroke Foundation which organized a mass training session in partnership with the cities of Belleville and Quinte

We now offer one of the LARGEST FACTORY DIRECT COLLECTIONS OF HANDCRAFTED CANADIAN MENNONITE FURNITURE in EASTERN ONTARIO Heirloom pieces are crafted from wormy & clear maple, flat & 1/4 cut oak, rustic & rough sawn pine & cherry.

Hastings EMS described the course as “a life-saving skill” that could apply at any time. He reported the local area has some 245 cardiac arrest cases in a typical year, and earliest possible application of CPR can often mean the difference between life and death. Corrigan also stressed the importance of immediate CPR. “The sooner CPR is started, the better chance a person has of surviving,” she said. For those taking the course, they may have opportunity to use it on a friend, neighbour or even a loved one. Beth Collins, health promotion specialist with Heart and Stroke, talked about how the course can help eliminate fear of applying when needed. “If you see someone in need, call 911, then push hard and fast on the centre of their chest about twice every second. It’s unscary, uncomplicated and, best of all, it makes you undead,” she said.

West and Hastings County’s Emergency Medical Services (EMS). The area also takes in the town of Brighton, noted Maureen Corrigan, area manager at the Belleville office. The agency organized a series of four free public workshop sessions in the Belleville Sports and Wellness Centre on Wednesday of last week. Corrigan said they began planning for 50 persons per workshop, but registrations raised that to 60 and finally up to 70 in some of the sessions. They drew participants of all ages from young people to seniors for a one-hour crash course using personal blow-up dummies called “Annies,” video instructions and hands-on training coached by several staff members of the EMS. The opening session at 9 a.m. Wednesday saw Councillor Garnet Thompson bring formal greetings for the many out-of-town participants and commendations on the project on behalf of Belleville Mayor Neil Ellis. He praised the “sold out” response by citizens and expressed special thanks to the joint regional EMS service “for doing what you do.” Doug Socha, director of the

Canadian Military history at the library

EMC Lifestyles - On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918, in accordance with the Armistice signed by representatives of Germany and the Entente, the guns of Europe fell silent. While World War I officially ended with the signing of the Treaty of Versailles on June 28, 1919, November 11

serves as a national period of remembrance, not only for those who lost their lives during World War I, but World War II, the Korean War, and all armed conflicts since in which members of the Canadian forces have served. Belleville Public Library hosts a sizeable collection on the history of Canadian

forces and its involvement in armed conflict. If you are interested in learning more about Canadian forces’ involvement in World War I, some great reads include Welcome to Flanders Field: the First Canadian Battle of the Great War: Ypres, 1915 by Daniel G. Dancocks, or Valour Re-

membered: Canada and the First World War by Patricia Giesler. If looking to expand your knowledge and understanding of Canadian forces involvement in World War II, try Terrible Victory: First Canadian Army and the Scheldt Estuary Campaign - September 13 to November 6, 1944,

EMC Events - Frankford The 23rd Annual Frankford Santa Claus Parade & Fantasy of Lights takes place Saturday, November 24. Santa takes his turn visiting Frankford on Saturday, November 24, in the community’s 23rd Annual Santa Claus Parade. Starting at the arena at 2 p.m., it will bring with it all the magic and excitement of the season that both residents and visitors have come to expect and enjoy. From the arena, the parade heads north on Trent Street to the four corners and then heads west on Mill Street to Wellington Street. There are a variety of bands already booked as well as an excellent mix of floats, specialty vehicles, community groups and animals. As always, letters to Santa will be picked up by carriers along the parade route and spectators are reminded to remember safety first and not enter the street to approach Santa’s float. Frank-

ford Foodland will also be picking up non-perishable food items for donation. The parade committee is still looking for kids to participate as costumed characters. You can volunteer by calling Kris Orr at 613-9020428. High School students can receive volunteer hours for their time. Following the parade, Santa makes his

way to the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 387, for a visit with all of the kids. Hot dogs and hot chocolate will be served to help warm up while awaiting his arrival, while quantities last. The parade is just one exciting activity in Frankford on the November 24. At 5 p.m. join us at the Frankford Tourist Park as the spirit of

the season comes alive with the official lighting ceremony of Frankford’s Fantasy of Lights. The light display is available to view and appreciate nightly until the New Year. For more information contact Lynda Reid (parade co-ordinator) at 613-3897991 or Jennifer Rushlow 613-920-4496.

program entitled CafĂŠ X. The ambitious program is essentially a life skills program running out of the organizationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 41 Octavia Street location in Bellevilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s west end. Katherine Davis, resource co-ordinator for CPFS, said the cafĂŠ program focuses on Ontario Works recipients that are out of work, or looking for work for the past six months; though mostly single moms the program is not limited to that. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The program aims to do two things. From-scratch food preparation is how we strive to get people comfortable in the kitchen with local and healthy foods so ultimately they are comfortable in their own kitchens feeding their own families. The second part of what we are doing is a life skills component so we talk a lot about who we are, why we are who we are and what our goals are,â&#x20AC;? explained Davis. She said that over the 12 weeks of the program, the participants hopefully get instilled with a sense of confidence and the ability to prepare a healthy diet for themselves and their families. Funding from the program stems from social services that pay for the participants to take part in the program and sustainable funding that pays for the kitchen, food supplies and staff salaries through the CPFS.

Besides the work skills training in the kitchen of the organization, participants are getting educated in the business aspect of the culinary arts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One thing is we have opened up the cafĂŠ here to the other community partners in the building; there are a lot of other agencies that share the building and they are able to come in, have a coffee, grab a snack, have lunch with everything made from scratch,â&#x20AC;? she said. Davis noted that the customer service and cash register skills are other aspects of training that the program participants learn in addition to the culinary arts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The cafĂŠ also gives an outlet for our food prepa-

ration so weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just not freezing and tossing out the meals,â&#x20AC;? noted Davis. The kitchen and program also provides food and snacks to the daycare next door to the kitchen, which also provides childcare to the program participants. The other exciting aspect of the CafĂŠ X program came to fruition after Davis noticed how much the cafĂŠ itself had picked up. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We thought we could be doing even more, we could be catering for community organizations and agencies or even personal businesses and functions,â&#x20AC;? stated Davis. So letters were sent out to various organizations within the city offering the services of the cafĂŠ to try out. Davis said the catering

passes on real life skills with sandwich tray and dessert tray preparation. The catering pricing is broken down into small, medium and large trays with a variety to choose from to custom make the orders, Davis added that the prices are reasonable and on par with the current market as to not to unfairly compete with other catering services. Overall Davis cites the new program as a success. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It has been fantastic and overwhelmingly successful and our greatest fear is that people will not want to leave at the end of the 12 weeks,â&#x20AC;? joked Davis. For more information on the program call them at 613-771-9659 or email <>.

EMC News - Belleville Natural disasters can be inspirations. Take Hurricane Sandy for example. After viewing the devastation left in the wake of the most recent hurricane to ravage the western world, Belleville musicians Mark Rashotte and Andy Forgie immediately thought of one thing … Bruce Springsteen. While that may seem an odd thought for a natural disaster to invoke, taking into account the history of the Empire Theatre and the previous two Rock for Relief events to provide funds to comfort victims of other natural disasters, it only seemed like a foregone conclusion that once again music would help provide for the downtrodden. Rashotte’s and Forgie’s band All You Need Is Love will host Rock For Relief 3, A Hurricane Sandy-USA Benefit Concert on Thursday, November 22, at 8 p.m. at The Empire Theatre in Belleville. The night will feature Bruce Springsteen’s hits and rock ’n’ roll classics inspired by the music of the Jersey Shore and The Big Apple, all to raise funds in support of the Hurricane Sandy relief effort. “Being big Springsteen fans we thought it would fun to do an evening of his music, but not just his music but also do some of the songs of the great artists who came out of New York City and New Jersey,” said Forgie. In addition to All You Need Is Love, the concert will feature local bands The Far Side, Big Black Smoke, Ed’s Garage and Centennial Secondary School Choir performing songs by Springsteen, Simon & Garfunkel, Dion, The Drifters, South Side Johnny, Billy Joel, Neil Diamond, Paul Si-

mon and the Isley Brothers to name a few. Tickets are $20 and will be on sale this Thursday at The Empire box office or online at <www.theempiretheatre. com>. To help reach the musicians’ $10,000 goal Rashotte has put one of his collectables, a framed drawing showing Springsteen at work and signed by “The Boss” himself, up for auction during the intermission. “It just feels good; it’s a good feeling thing and let’s just hope we can do this,” commented Forgie. The event is run in conjunction with the Canadian Red Cross who will receive the funds then put what is raised into the Hurricane Sandy-USA Relief Fund. Forgie also noted that the promoter of Abbey Road on the River USA and other musicians have already kicked into the fund and have donated $800 specifically for the Empire event.

day she could be there (one day a child was sick and she could not come) as well as her 16-year-old daughter and a partner who helped out. Melanie noted the community also gets very involved. This is the second build in Trenton in partnership with students at St. Paul Secondary School. The community is also active in donating time, materials and funding for the home. “Our goal is to build more homes,” Melanie said. “With the support of the community we can do more. We are reliant on fund raisers, and the generosity of people. Engaging the community is such a huge piece of what we do.” As well as two builds in Trenton, there have been builds in Frankford, Belleville and Picton, as well as one going on now in Bancroft. This is the second Women’s Week for this Habitat for Humanity and the ladies are already looking forward to another. As well as working for a full day, each lady is responsible for donating a minimum of $50 or raising a minimum of $100 in pledges. The top pledge for this build was $500. They get pampered with Starbucks coffee, apples from Campbell’s Orchards, lunch donated by local restaurants each day and hot chocolate from Tim Hortons. They also have musicians serenade the ladies and a masseur stretch out their tired muscles. “It was an amazing turnout,” Melanie said. “We had 77 women here during the week.” The next Women’s Week will be in Picton next year, the third build for that city. Tweed has also had an elderly lady donate a piece of land with a house on it for use by the organization, either renovating it or tearing it down to build for a larger family. The donor gets a tax receipt. This year the Knights of Columbus in Trenton is donating the proceeds of its annual Spring Funfest to Habitat for Humanity. The Wesleyan Church of Trenton has also donated use of its house next to the build for office use and lunches. “It’s great to have a warm place to come into,” Melanie said with a smile.

Novice AE weekend

EMC Sports - Belleville In was a tough battle all the way through and in the end the mighty Trojans had fallen. In Junior COSSA action at Moira Secondary School, just after the seniors had romped over the Adam Scott Lions en route to the first COSSA crown in 21 years the juniors hoped to complete a hat trick of victories only to be shot down in overtime by the pesky Lions. The Lions picked an early lead in the first half and Adam Scott’s ferocious nature kept the Trojans at bay the entire first half keeping the score 7 - 0. Moira’s offensive line settled down in the third quarter, and after a few big running plays from “Runny” Lefort Cummings the Trojans managed to tie the game up 7 - 7. Adam Scott continued a strong running game and jettisoned through the formidable Moira defence. By getting Moira off balance the Lions managed to reclaim their lead in the early minutes of the fourth quarter. “They were relentless with their power football

style,” said Moira Coach Justin Shakell. “We couldn’t get them stopped. Their defence was everywhere; they are such a well coached team.” Moira continued to battle and though they managed to connect on a 30-yard pass to get the Trojans close, then with Adam Scott punting in

the last minutes of the game Moira came up with a punt block that eventually led to Brown tiptoeing into the end zone. But it wasn’t enough as the Adam Scott Lions proved to be too much to handle en route to a 28 - 21 overtime victory over the Trojans.

Summer McCurdy accounted for 12 points for Moira while Anna Brennan led the Titans with a game-high 13.

Senior Trojans claim first COSSA crown in 21 years By Michael J Brethour

EMC Sports - Belleville It was a cold dreary November day on the still mud laden

Moira Secondary School field but Senior Trojans player Matt McDougall lit the field on fire. McDougall’s two-

touchdown performance coupled with a number of big plays helped Moira secure its first senior boys COSSA title

in 21 years. After Cleave shot home a clean pass to McDougall for his first touchdown of the game to help extend Moira’s lead to 15 - 0, the Lions came roaring back with two touch downs of their own. “We kind of let them back in; it was 16 - 13 at the half,” noted Moira coach Dave Corbett. He said the Moira defence played a massive role as two interceptions kept Adam Scott from getting the pigskin to Moira’s end zone. McDougall snagged a nice pass for the receiver’s second touchdown of the game. Cleave, Moira’s quarterback

accounted for the Trojans other touchdown as he scampered into the end zone himself. A single off a kick off and missed punt and a field goal rounded out the scoring. Final score was Moira 30, Adam Scott 13. “We knew we were going to have a battle; those guys were not going to give up. They were very well coached; sometimes they were calling the play we were running before I did,” said Corbett. Corbett said by the second half the Trojans had worn Adam Scott down. “They had a lot of guys going both ways, especially

their big guys. I think the second half it started to show because I think we started to wear them down as they appeared to be slowing,” he said. Corbett said that for the OFSAA crown, the match will be played at Mary-Anne Sills artificial tough. He noted the team is prepared for anything in their next contest with a strong defensive and offensive complement. “We’ve pretty much seen everything now so I don’t think we’ll see anything new, I’m pretty confident we will be playing some quality football,” he said.

By Kate Everson

EMC News - Quinte West “The most important reason we are here is for the families,” said Mayor John Williams at the dedication of the Afghanistan Repatriation Memorial on November 10. “We are fortunate to have many of the families here today.” He thanked Don Cherry for showing up with his daughter and for all his support of the military. He noted that the CAV, military, fire, police, 413 Wing and Trenton Citizens Band were also participants. Williams said the idea for a memorial came from former MPP Hugh O’Neil

who wanted some way to remember the fallen soldiers who were repatriated at CFB Trenton and joined the Highway of Heroes on their journey to Toronto. He also thanked Pete Fisher for the naming of that highway, and to all those who stood along the fences and bridges on that route. “Canadians support Canadians,” he said. Dave Devall acting as emcee reminded them that donations are still needed to pay for the $1.2 million memorial that is unique across the country and paid for by contributions of Canadians; there was no government funding. Federal Minister of Veterans Affairs the Honourable Steven Blaney said it was all about caring about Canadians. “We have not forgotten,” he said. “This memorial is a testament to the fallen and their families for whom life has changed forever: an empty room, an empty chair, a void in their life.” Ontario Minister of Finance the Honourable Dwight Duncan said this is an ideal setting on the Bay of Quinte, not far from the repatriations. “We honour them this day and every day,” he said. Afghanistan ambassador to Canada His Excellence Barna Karimi, said he has always


wanted to meet the families of Canadians who lost their lives in Afghanistan. He said the people of Afghanistan remember the Canadians who brought them relative peace and freedom and a better life. Also nine million kids now go to school, there is access to health care and services and roads and they don’t live in fear of terrorists. Karimi said they also lost a lot of lives in Afghanistan, in the thousands, but today it is a better place because of the efforts of Canadians. Major General Vance, Director of Staff, Strategic Joint Staff, commended the Canadians for their courage and dedication in the face of adversity. Kathy Bulger, mother of fallen soldier Corporal Nick Bulger, spoke on behalf of the families. She thanked the community for its amazing accomplishment and said the park was a place to come and reflect and hopefully find peace and tranquility. She said she will bring Nick’s girls here and reflect on what a great man their daddy was. Issam Massough, brother of fallen soldier WO Hani Massough, said he had talked to his brother about going to Afghanistan and he said it was making a difference. A dedication and blessing was offered by Major ReverPlease see “Canadians” on page B4

Presqu’ile Bay group ready to help By Ray Yurkowski

EMC News - Brighton - A local group, created to pursue environmental concerns at Presqu’ile Bay, are asking municipal council if the letter is in the mail. At their October 15

meeting, council unanimously approved a motion to draft a letter addressed to provincial and federal departments asking for a program to assess the environmental status of the bay as well as launching an

ongoing monitoring program. “Presqu’ile Bay is to Brighton what the Great Lakes are to Ontario,” said Councillor John Martinello, in his report at that meeting. “In order to protect and

improve the water quality, it is necessary to know its current condition.” “In June 2012, the Province of Ontario released its draft Great Lakes Strategy and that 63-page document very much speaks to the

need to protect the Great Lakes and the need to protect marshland such as Presqu’ile Bay. I think now is an opportune time to get this issue on the Government of Ontario’s radar.” “I think we can all concede the water quality in Brighton bay is unacceptable,” added Kerr. “But I don’t think we should be holding back on doing something until the results of that testing comes through. The motion should further extend to recommending some sort of an action plan modelled on the Bay of Quinte Remedial Action Plan and several others that are available.” “It would be very worthwhile for a non-profit group to be formed because that group can find funding, they Have you read one of our stories...

can encourage and be the champions to get something done to fix the problems that go on,” suggested Kerr. “This letter is from that group,” says group representative, University of Western Ontario biology professor emeritus Roger Green, in a letter to municipal council. “One purpose is to say the group does exist and meets regularly. “We currently have five members with two more expressing interest and another suggested as an appropriate addition, and we already have diverse experience and expertise: long-time Brightonians and professional experience in hydrography and environmental studies. If our group can help in any way, please contact us.” The letter has been mailed, says municipal CAO Gayle Frost. Dated October 30, copies were sent to federal representatives MP Rick Norlock, Fisheries and Oceans Minister Keith Ashfield and Environment Canada Minister Peter Kent along with, on the provincial side, MPP Rob Milligan, Natural Resources Minister Michael Gravelle and Environment Minister Jim Bradley. Presqu’ile Bay “is going downhill and it’s getting pretty bad,” said Green, in an interview this week. Email Roger Green at <> for more information on the group.

Codrington gravel pit decision headed to OMB EMC News - Brighton CBM Aggregates, a division of St. Marys Cement Group, has filed a “friendly appeal” because of municipal council failure to make a decision on an application for an amendment to the zoning bylaw. In a letter to the municipality, CBM land and resources director Melanie Horton calls the action a “friendly appeal” and they “continue to be committed to working with the municipality in an attempt to resolve outstanding issues.” “We are making the appeal at this time so that all of the matters associated with the CBM Codrington Pit may be consolidated into a single hearing at the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB),” she wrote. “There are three things going on at the same time when we deal with most gravel pits,” explained mu-

nicipal planning director Ken Hurford at last week’s council meeting. “CBM has an application in front of the Ministry of Natural Resources [MNR] for an aggregate resources licence; they have an application before the municipality for an amendment to the Official Plan [endorsed by council in December 2011] and an application before the municipality for a zoning bylaw amendment.” “This was going to the OMB no matter what,” he added. “There was an appeal of the Official Plan amendment and there are [about two dozen] outstanding objectors to the request for an aggregate licence. Whatever decision this council made, whether to enact the zoning bylaw or defeat it, that decision would have been appealed to the OMB by one party or another. “The OMB can pull all

of these files together. They don’t consider them all separately because they all relate to each other.” “Has the municipality done anything wrong?” wondered Mayor Mark Walas. “No,” said Hurford.“We’ve been working through a process with CBM—at the consultant level, at the lawyer level, at the planner level—to hash through all these concerns and make sure they are taking the steps they need to take to satisfy this council and the citizens of Brighton and to make sure we’re doing everything we can to protect our interests if this was to proceed. “As of today, [CBM] hasn’t done everything we wanted and that is why we have not brought something before this council. Our solicitor and myself have been very firm; we’re not prepared to put something in front of council and, frankly, waste

our time, on something that is not what the expectation was coming out of the meeting last December.” “That wouldn’t sit well with the OMB,” added Hurford. “To be told that the municipality had certain expectations and those expectations weren’t addressed. The OMB would not look kindly on making it hard for council to make a final decision.” “This is certainly a reaffirmation as to why I voted against the whole situation in the first place,” said Deputy-mayor Tom Rittwage. “When we sat in front of the folks from CBM, they told us all the wonderful things they were going to do and what this tells me is people be damned in Codrington; we’re just going to push and do things the way we want.” CBM filed applications for a sand and gravel pit licence at a 105-hectare (259-acre)

site on Ferguson Hill Road in 2009. Although the actual area of extraction is proposed on only 80 hectares

(198 acres), CBM expects to extract 14 million tonnes of aggregate over approximately 30 years.

Reality Check: EMC Lifestyles - Last week, as I was driving home from a Remembrance Day service, I saw a house with a Christmas tree proudly perched in the bay window. Christmas. In November. My first instinct was to get grumpy. I hadn’t planned on thinking about Christmas until the slush hit and the malls became impenetrable. But then it occurred to me, if this family has their Christmas tree up this early, they must really love Christmas. They must be excited, and happy, and ready to spread the cheer. Perhaps we need more of those kinds of people. A little excitement and happiness is awfully contagious. When I’m barrel-

A contagious smile

ling into a store, and someone holds the door open, smiles and offers, “Have a great day!” it makes me smile, too. This wouldn’t surprise psychologists, who know that our social interactions are largely influenced by “mirror neurons” in the brain. These neurons stimulate what the other person is feeling. If we see someone smiling, our mirror neurons will stimulate us toward happiness, and then we’ll smile back. You’ve probably noticed this already when it comes to yawning. Yawning is actually the most contagious thing in the world, scientists say. Even the fact that you read the word “yawn” in this column is probably making

you want to yawn. Many of you already have. Smiling isn’t quite as contagious, but it is on the same plane. It seems we humans are hard-wired for empathy, and so unconsciously we like to mimic those we’re with in order to produce a closer bond. If we naturally mimic people, then, it’s probably best to hang out with people who are worth mimicking. Find positive people, not negative people. When I talk with someone for an hour or two about everything that’s wrong with everyone else, I leave that conversation rather critical. When I talk for an hour or two with someone who’s enthusiastic about life, I tend to pick up on their enthusiasm.

you need to take a shower afterward? Find another hobby. We need to watch who and what we let influence us. But what’s really interesting is that we can start that chain in motion ourselves. If we smile and say positive things, others will respond. Instead of participating in a “here’s all the ways men are useless” conversation, for instance, you could launch your own “here’s what I love about guys.” Or instead of joining the “here’s why society is going downhill,” you could start, “here’s what I really love about kids these days.” Maybe if we started noticing the positive, rather than the negative, we’d start a chain of grati-

O&S #3: Once the ground freezes, you can cover up some tender perennials and woody perennials with dried leaves; you should have a bag or two of them lying about. If you don’t, take a stroll down the street and scarf up a few from the curbside. O&S #4: Clean up and repair gardening tools as you put them away. At the same time, get out the snow clearing implements and have them ready. Make a note as to which tools you really used and enjoyed using and put them on your Christmas shopping list for friends.

O&S #5: Plant bulbs now. A fall bulb is one you plant in the fall. It will flower in the spring. A spring bulb is one you plant in the spring to get a summer bloom. Bulbs need time to settle in and get some roots growing before the cold shuts everything down. Get big bulbs if you want flowers: purchase little bulbs (relative to genus) if you want to save money and grow leaves. Find sunny spots; plant in odd numbers; I like to make as big a grouping as my budget allows; solid plantings make a better show than a hodgepodge; feed them in the spring, plan on replacing them after their second season of flowering; take pictures when they bloom; draw a map when you plant them; and, plant one for you, one for Gaia and one for Mr. Squirrel. O&S #6: Dissatisfaction is hereby formally expressed to landscape suppliers and municipal councils who don’t “protect” their local tradespeople. Let me illustrate the supplier side of the issue by using paver stones as an example; I could just as easily use fertiliser, bulk soil or grass seed. LKG is a fictional company that produces pavers. LKG will have depots or suppliers located in the area from which local trades people purchase. LKB and LKD, fictional paver installers, pay the same price to LKG. Their competitive advan-

Cannifton garage

tage is tied into each company’s expertise and not the price of the product. I view this as fair. What is not fair is when fictional company FDW from the Big Smoke can come in and charge the end user (homeowner) a lower price for the pavers because LKG charged them less. If FDW can purchase pavers in the big city and truck them way out here to the hinterlands cheaper than LKG sells to the locals, there is something wrong. Pure capitalists will say, “So it goes, eh.” And they would be right, so goes the money paid by the homeowner, so goes the money earned by the out-of-town installers, so goes the jobs of the local trades people. By the way, fictional companies LKB and LKD no longer purchase products from LKG. In terms of municipal contracts and awarding of tenders, the same reasoning applies. Local business employs local residents, pays taxes to the municipality and the money earned is spent in the municipality. Another aspect of this is unfair ill-will directed to the organisation occupying the tendered edifice. One example, fictional of course, involves an agency supported by public funds. (Gentle Reader and Municipal Mugwumps: pick a town, any town and you can make an argument for many a tendered project. Idiosyncrasies aside, most of you Mugwump types are good sorts honestly do-

ing the best you can do for your constituents.) Most of the tenders were awarded out-of-town; there was nothing exceptional about this project in that the expertise required to construct it is readily available in the area. The fictional agency occupying said fictional building is soliciting ongoing community support as is normal for them. Some of the local businesses shunned in the bidding process find it difficult to get on board. Final outcome, wages earned by the construction are taken out of town, revenue earned by winning tender is taken out of town, the jobs created by the local contract are taken by out of town, taxes collected from local workers shrink as workers go out of town looking for jobs and disaffection with councillors is unfairly shown in lower donations to the agency. Awarding contracts and tenders to the lowest bidder (I’ll modify that by saying “the bidder with the lowest bid coupled with a perceived ability to best complete the job satisfactorily.” Sometimes companies bid on projects outside of their capability or expertise and their bid is unreasonably low) isn’t always the best course of action. I know that any councillor who can defend awarding a bid to a local company, even though it might not have been the lowest offered, will have my support come election time.

My favourite interpretation, told to me by my guide, was that a young male lover left this footprint when he frantically jumped from the castle upon the sudden arrival of his girlfriend’s dad. He continued down into the valley, but later returned. Dad eventually allowed them to marry and they lived happily ever after. If a visitor steps into this footstep today, then

He became the keeper of the great wine vat, and an unofficial city mascot, and his nickname of “Perkeo” stuck because he was often offered wine and would usually respond, in Italian, with “Perche no?” (“Why not?”). His reputation as an excessive wine drinker continued for many years, but the story goes that one day he felt sick and decided to drink some water instead, and then he died the very next day!

the Powder Tower, with its extremely thick walls that were designed for the storage of gunpowder, but much of it was destroyed by Louis XIV and remains in ruins today. I also saw the impressive Gate Tower, the only tower to basically “survive” the many sieges, where an enormous iron ring on one of the wooden gates was used as a door knocker. Legend has it that anyone who could bite through this ring would be given the castle, and apparently a witch tried to do so but left only a tooth mark (still visible) when she tried! I also visited the “Schlosshof” (Castle Courtyard), where I saw the Friedrich Building, adorned with statues of Friedrich IV and his ancestors; the Otto Heinrich Building, which is the castle’s most imposing structure and its cellar houses the “German Pharmacy Museum,” with its incredible collection of pharmacists’ utensils through the ages; and the King’s Hall which houses the Great Barrel, the largest wooden wine barrel in the world. My exploration of this Great Barrel, which can hold 220,000 litres, included ascending some steps to a dance floor atop the actual barrel, going out onto the castle terrace for a view of


EMC Lifestyles - I received an email from the German National Tourist Board, <>, informing me of the results of its 2012 survey to find out what visitors considered to be the “Top 100 Tourist Attractions in Germany,” and the winner, the #1 selection, was the Heidelberg Castle. Many believe this to be “the most beautiful ruin of all,” for it has been uninhabitable since the 16th century, when it was struck by lightning and burned. Prior to that, it had been the residence of most of the Prince Electors. Yet this impressive historic landmark still dominates the cityscape, for it towers high above the Old Town and the Neckar River and offers visitors a breathtaking view. Popular American writer Mark Twain visited Heidelberg and its castle back in the 19th century, and he fell in love with both—and even seemed to foreshadow the result of this recent survey. In his book, A Tramp Abroad, published in 1880, Twain wrote “a ruin must be rightly situated to be effective. This one could not have been better placed.” I visited the Heidelberg Castle on my most recent trip to Europe, and I even had the good fortune to be there for its “Heidelberg Castle Illumination.” This spectacular event, which attracts thousands of tourists, takes place three times a year (on the first Saturday in June and September and on the second Saturday in July), and I joined the crowds that lined the river banks and the nearby bridges to enjoy the free “light show.” At about 10 p.m., the entire castle, which had been enveloped by the darkness, was suddenly and spectacularly bathed in red lights, almost as if on fire. This represented the three burnings of the castle (in 1689 and 1693, as a result of wars with the French, and in 1764, as a result of lightning) and then this was followed by a magnificent fireworks display, launched from the Old Bridge (which continued for about 15 minutes). What a sight! I, of course, also took a daytime tour of the castle, arriving via the funicular and I discovered that not only the view looking up toward the castle was magnificent, but that the view of Heidelberg, looking down from the castle’s gardens or its Great Terrace, was also spectacular. I walked through the Elizabeth Gate, said to have been erected overnight as a 19th birthday present for Elizabeth by her husband, Frederick V and soon found myself staring at the partially collapsed Prison Tower; I was told prisoners were lowered by rope into their cell, for the only entrance/exit was at the top.

Mad Hatters and Cheshire cats at SFT

By Richard Turtle

EMC Entertainment Stirling - The cast and crew of the upcoming Christmas Panto began preparations for a trip down the rabbit hole this week with Alice in Wonderland opening at the end of the month at the Stirling Festival Theatre. Director David Vanderlip says the annual show will be another zany and madcap look at a well-known children’s story and as usual the upcoming production is more than simple child’s play. With about 30 shows slated before closing night on New Year’s Eve, and both family and naughty versions to nail down in the next two weeks, cast members were eager to begin as the group descended on the theatre’s Eugene Burrell Hall for a read through Monday morning. Cast members include several returning SFT favourites including J.P Baldwin, Dean Hollin, and Debbie Collins who play the Cheshire Cat, Alice’s mother Lacie, and the Queen of Hearts respectively. And after playing the villain in last year’s Puss in Boots, Hollin says, he’s looking forward to taking on the role of the dame in this year’s offering. Other cast members include Kristi Frank, Michael Hogeveen, Larenne Vine and Ryan Whittal. Written by SFT regular Ken MacDougall, Alice in Wonderland, promises plenty of laughs along with a variety of twists and turns unique to the Stirling telling of a familiar story. Along with writing and directing last year’s Puss in Boots, MacDougall has also been involved in several previous SFT productions as well as appearing on stages across Canada and on television. The play opens on Wednesday, November 28, at 2 p.m. with evening and matinee shows scheduled throughout the month of December. Family versions will be presented opening night at 8 p.m. and in matinee performances (2 p.m.) on December 9, 15, 22, 26, 29 and December 31. Performances of the naughty version will be held November 29, December 1, 2, 7, 8, 9, 12, 14, 15, 19, 20, 21, 22, 26, 28, 29, 30. And as usual, set builders and costume designers will have plenty of work ahead in the coming weeks, creating a fantasy world on the SFT stage. Complete with a mas-

EMC News - Quinte West - A representative from MPAC, the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation, will be at next Monday’s council meeting, November 19, at 6:30 p.m. “There are concerns about the farm tax,” notes Terry Cassidy. “Are the assessment notices out yet?” David Clazie, director of Corporate and Financial Services, said the notices are being staggered throughout the province, starting in southwestern

Ontario. “There are substantial increases in farm assessments,” he said. Clazie said the local assessments should be here starting on Friday, November 16. Cassidy had concerns the representatives from MPAC were coming too late. “People need someone to translate the impact this will have on their taxes,” he said. “We need to help the taxpayers.” Clazie said the representative will discuss how much of an increase there will be in the different

categories. Don Kuntze asked if there will be any notification on the city web site. Clazie said yes, along with updates through social media. This fall, all property owners in Ontario will receive a Property Assessment Notice with the updated assessed value of their property as of January 1, 2012. All property in Ontario is assessed once every four years by MPAC. Each property is assessed based on what a willing buyer would pay a willing seller for the property on a legislated valuation date. To help provide an additional level of property tax stability and predictability, the Ontario Government has introduced a phase-in program where market increases in assessed value between January 1, 2008, and January 1, 2012, will be phased in over four years (20132016). The full benefit of a decrease is applied immediately. To establish your property’s assessed value, MPAC analyzes property sales in your community. This method is called Current Value Assessment. It is used by most assessment jurisdictions in Canada and throughout the world. In addition to sales, they look at the key features of every property. As many as 200 factors are considered when assessing the value of a residential property. Five major factors usually account for 85 per cent of the value: location; lot dimensions; living area; age of the property, adjusted for any major renovations or additions; and quality of construction. Other features that may affect value include: number of bathrooms, fireplaces, garages, pools, whether properties have water frontage, and so on. They analyze the key features of your property with sales of comparable properties in your community to determine your assessment. We are in Region #6: Hastings County, Northumberland County, City of Prince Edward County The Municipal Property Assessment Corporation office is at 5 Creswell Drive, P.O. Box 520, Trenton, Ontario K8V 5R7. Hours for MPAC’s tollfree customer service: 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Friday. Call 1-866-296MPAC (6722). Have you read one of our stories... Agree? Disagree?

Remembering War at the Heritage Centre

ship continued the assault by running over the lifeboats and machine-gunning the helpless survivors, which included 14 Nursing Sisters. Unfortunately, Dr. Sills was not on the one lifeboat which was able to escape this further atrocity. According to the archived report, “The Llandovery Castle became the rallying cry for the Canadian troops during the Last 100 Days offensive.” Additional documentation concerning this story has been researched by local resident Martin (Dutch) Vermeer. A former member of the Military Police, Vermeer has access to a greater range of historical material than the general public, and has, for several decades, been completing files on Hastings County residents who served in the armed forces. Vermeer has determined that the captain of that German gunboat was tried for war crimes and found guilty in the Leipzig Assizes. Despite the death sentence given, he apparently did not even serve a jail sentence, but re-appeared at an even higher rank in the German navy in the 1930s. In addition to the current display at the gallery, there is another room at the Heritage Centre which is permanently dedicated to the memory of this area’s military personnel. One wall of this room is almost completely covered by photographs of those who did not return alive from their tour of duty. Thanks to Evan

Morton, curator, for dedicating this room permanently to such a worthy purpose. Thanks, also, to Dutch Vermeer for his efforts to keep the memories of these people, and their stories, alive.


EMC News - Tweed - November is a full month of remembrance at the gallery of the Tweed Heritage Centre. Posters, paintings, photographs, and various memorabilia collections relating to the two World Wars are on display. Special attention is drawn to the contributions of the residents of Hastings County. This is where stories from those times come to life. One such story concerns the life and tragic passing of George Luther Sills, who died June 27, 1918. Son of S. Wilson Sills, a carpenter, and Elizabeth Jane Sills, of River Street, Tweed, he was enrolled at Queen’s University in Kingston before enlisting at the outbreak of war. He was assigned to duties as a medical orderly at a hospital in Egypt. At the end of this assignment, he returned to Queen’s to complete his studies and become a doctor, at which time he re-enlisted. Documentation of this reenlistment confirms that Dr. Sills’ rank was that of Captain in the Canadian Army Medical Corps. While proceeding from Halifax to Liverpool, the ship he was on was deliberately torpedoed by a German gun boat, despite the fact that the Llandovery Castle was well-marked via Red Cross lights as a hospital ship. Though most of the personnel aboard were able to escape to lifeboats, the German

they admit there are several special reasons for making the trip home. And one of them is named Kelly Trotter. “She’s been like a mom to us,” Bartley says, including enduring the teenage antics of the girls alongside Trotter’s sons Dylan and Hunter and others as they got into their share of trouble but stayed out of most of it. So when the students learned the news that Trotter had been diagnosed with breast cancer, “we knew we had to do something,” Bartley says.

The ribbon reads: Save Our Rack. “We had no idea how many we’d sell,” Bartley says, but the first order of 80 sold out in a hurry. A further 100 now on order are already sold so further orders are pending. And Bartley and Bonnin have been racking up sales in their new home cities as well.

Her outlook remains entirely positive and the support, she says, is immeasurable.

GRANT, Orlene Grant, Orlene

In loving memory of a dear mother and grandmother who passed away Nov. 20, 2010. Two years have passed already since you were taken away. It broke our hearts to lose you that November day. So many tears have fallen since the morning the angels came. Your suffering was over when Jesus called your name. I often lay away at night when the world is fast asleep. Remembering you is easy I do it every day. But missing you is a heartache that never goes away. Our family chain is broken but the love and memories your family has will last eternally, till we meet again some day. So dearly missed and loved, Charlene, Mike, Hailey & Emma
