EMC News - Belleville Using lands already owned by the City of Belleville will save a large amount of land costs toward a new police headquarters, Chief Cory McMullan told City Council Tuesday of last week. McMullan reviewed a detailed proposal on the long-discussed project she had presented some months ago during a closed session of council, and because it was an open council meeting, followed the rules of keeping presentations down to ten minutes. From three potential sites reviewed earlier, McMullan said one is now no longer available. The two remaining are the Veridian property at the corner of

Sidney and College streets and the fairground property at the corner of Bridge and Sidney. Both are similar in terms of adequacy of size, future growth allowance, and central locations for police needs. A suitable building could be put up on either location for under $20 million, the Veridian property slightly higher in estimated cost because of site work. The chief went further to state that the fairground location would be her first choice simply because traffic congestion at the College Street location could prose problems for quick entry and exit for emergencies. But the decision is council’s to make, she stressed. 

Her main concern is that other large solar panel complex Please see “New” on page 3 council indicate the need is in the works for the eastern for the project to go ahead part of the former township by including $1 million toward it in the capital budget for 2013.

EMC Lifestyles - If this season’s NHL lockout has you pining for a taste of Canada’s Greatest Game, come to Belleville Public Library on Thursday, November 29, at 6 p.m. Join acclaimed hockey author Todd Denault on a trip down memory lane as he discusses his new book, A Season in Time: Super Mario, Killer, St. Patrick, The Great One and the Unforgettable 199293 NHL Season. You will be in good company; Todd is passionate about hockey. A dedicated Habs fan, he is the author of Jacques Plante: The Man Who Changed the Face of Hockey and The Greatest Game: The Montreal Canadiens, the Red Army and the Night That Saved Hockey. With A Season in Time he celebrates the twentieth anniversary of one of the greatest seasons in hockey history. Why does it deserve this accolade? Denault believes it was the end of a golden era, the final gasp of run-and-gun hockey, which had dominated the decade before. It was a season of triumphs, controversy and record-breaking performances. The Habs won the Stanley Cup, Doug Gilmour took the Leafs to within one victory of a place in the final and Super Mario defeated his ultimate opponent cancer. The Great One earned his name that year for battling a careerending back injury to take the Los Angeles Kings to the Cup final. This book, however, is about much more than just famous names. Denault is a member of the Society for International Hockey Research, and it shows. The book features interviews with more than one hundred players, coaches and executives to reveal the back stories behind the headlines. For example, the 19921993 season introduced rookie Eric Lindros. The contract he signed with the Philadelphia Flyers helped pave the way to NHL lockouts. He became highest-paid player in the NHL without ever playing a game. The Rookie of the Year award went to Teemu Selanne (Winnipeg Jets) whose Rookie record of 76 goals and 132 points still stands. After five straight losses, Patrick Roy had his pads redesigned and won the Cup with ten straight play-off victories. Even the most dedicated hockey aficionado will learn something new. So don’t miss this opportunity to reminisce about that remarkable 1992-1993 season in which the unexpected and the improbable came to pass.

Santa Claus parade lights up Belleville By Steve Petrick

EMC Events - Belleville Santa Claus arrived in the city at precisely 5 p.m. last Sunday. He stepped out of a black A1 Limousine Service bus at Quinte Secondary School just as the sun finished setting on the city. Two men helped him climb a ladder and into his sleigh. He waved his hand to the crowd and then a fabulous display of lights got under way. Dozens of businesses and community groups participated in the Belleville & District Chamber of Commerce Nighttime Santa Claus Parade. By 4:30 p.m. hundreds of people had lined up along North Front Street from King George Square all the way downtown, at which point firefighters began collecting donations for the Gleaners Food Bank and walking Canada Post mailboxes collected kids’ letters for Santa. By 5 p.m., a crowd of thousands had lined the street. Darkness

Christmas at the Pier

EMC Events - Belleville It’s little brighter down by Meyers Pier. Brighter and more festive thanks to the city’s new Christmas light display at Jane Forrester Park; it was officially “turned on” Friday evening. After a short ceremony and speeches by Mayor Ellis and Christmas Light Display committee chair Garnet Thompson, the switch was flipped to the delight of over 300 people present for the event. The colourful display includes the long-standing Foster family display which stood at the Tom Gavey Alemite Park on the city’s east end in past years. Three extra-large Christ-

mas trees donated by various businesses and individuals in the community are featured, and a series of lighting arrangements and snowmen light up the graceful new park making the city’s pier seasonally festive. “We chose this location for its beauty, accessibility and its location. This display has been on the drawing board for several years, and it’s really thanks to council’s commitment and the hard work of the lighting display committee that we’re able to be here today to enjoy Christmas at the Pier,” said Mayor Neil Ellis. “This is going to be one awesome display,” said Thompson.

Thompson said the city spent over $5,000 to refurbish the display. Donors’ names are listed at the site and those of major donors, gold, silver and bronze levels, appear on plaques placed at their sponsored decorations. The project had an initial budget of $125,000. Thompson named and thanked the various levels of sponsors, specifically noting Ross McDougall of McDougall Insurance; he was the very first sponsor to jump on board with support. Thompson said the pier was chosen in part because the location allows visitors to either drive past or walk through the area.

Council proclaims November 20 Collip Day By Jack Evans

Dr. George Pearce shows a small part of his collection of boxes of documents on Belleville native and Canadian scientist hero Dr. James Collip in what he said was “once a bedroom.” He is looking for work space to properly sort and complete his presentation for historical purposes. Photo: Jack Evans

EMC News - Belleville If Dr. James Bertram Collip does not become a wellrecognized national hero of science as well as a famous Belleville native, it won’t be for lack of trying by Dr. George Pearce. Pearce, a member of the Hastings County Historical Society and a volunteer researcher at the Heritage Centre, has been working for many months on compiling a detailed presentation about the man who is credited with finding a safe and practical way to deliver insulin from an animal product to a lifesaving serum for those afflicted with serious diabetes. He has amassed cartons of documents and records plus a sizeable library of books and is eagerly looking for a work space with a big table so he can properly put them

all in order for posterity. Insulin, said Dr. Pearce, had been identified for decades as the key factor in the disease with many scientific researchers all over the world working on it. While the Canadian team of Drs. Banting, Best and Collip are internationally recognized for the final success, “They built on the work of others,” Pearce acknowledges. A medical doctor himself, Pearce has long sought to get recognition of Collip as a Belleville native. His work to purify cattle-produced insulin for safe use as a diabetic treatment is regarded as the key event to get it from theory to practical use. While not a seeker of attention, his efforts did ensure his getting a share of the income from the project. Belleville City Council recently came on side with a

motion from Councillor Pat Culhane that Belleville proclaim November 20, Collip’s birthday. He was born in 1892 and died in 1965. From a farm family in the north of England, Collip’s parents came to Canada and settled on a small garden farm in then-Thurlow Township near where the Belleville Airport is now. He obtained his early education at local schools then went to the University of Toronto to study science. Besides his proven contribution to the insulin project, his life’s achievements include a BA, MA, PhD, and MD degrees, a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada, 1925, the Royal Society, 1933, Commander, Order of the British Empire (one level below knighthood), 1943, D Sc, Oxford, 1946, the United States Medal of Freedom,

1947, and an honourary doctorate from the University of Western Ontario, London, where he spent his final years and is buried. Asked to take part in the research by Dr. Banting, Collip created a purification process in a matter of a few weeks from early December, 1921, to January 22, 1922, and its first application was a youth in a coma in Toronto General Hospital, who quickly made a full recovery. He had also spent some years with the University of Alberta before returning to his native Ontario, where he visited regularly with friends and family in Belleville, said Dr. Pearce. Following council’s proclamation, the Historical Society arranged for a modest recognition ceremony on the Market Square on Tuesday, November 20.

Artisan show takes place this weekend in Corbyville from the artisans will be raffled to the benefit of this year’s charity. The first 25 people attending that purchase raffle tickets will receive a swag bag, raffle tickets are $2 or three tickets for $5. Forgie noted that in the past two years the show has raised over $3,500 and she noted that she fully expects to generate over $1,000 for Adam’s Hope

this year. Forgie said the show encourages people to think local for Christmas gifts for friends and family. Mistletoe Magic is a juried event, showcasing and promoting local artisans and supporting local charities. Past charitable benefactors are Adopt-a-Child of Quinte, Alzheimer’s Society of Belleville, Hastings & Quinte and the Quinte

Humane Society. To date over the past nine years and the various incarnations of the show, $15,000 has been raised for the above charities. Forgie said the day is not just about shopping, it’s about the experience. “Come and join us, mingle about meet the artisans, enjoy a tasty treat, a glass of wine or coffee and it’s a perfect day,” said Forgie.

Letters to the editor Dear Editor, Allan Greg is a longtime Conservative and favoured pollster for the party. Sadly, even Allan has reached the

end of his tether with the Harper regime. In a speech to Carlton University recently, he compares this government to George Or-

well’s version in 1984. He compares the titles given to bills in the omnibus bill to Big Brother’s “Ignorance is Strength” to “an Act to Enact Justice for Victims of Terrorism” which stiffened penalties for possession of pot and builds more prisons, forgetting for a moment that there are more victims of pool drowning than terrorism. Also Orwellian is Bill C18 “Marketing Freedom for Grain Farmers Act” which dismantles the Canadian Wheat Board. Read the complete speech and much more in the CCPA Monitor. The bigger, improved public relations flyer arrived today from the Harper regime; they are now large enough to make a wall poster. Mr. Kramp has a swath of pictures in it to prove that he attends a host of community events. No argument there. The devil is, of course, in what is simply left out. Here are a few: helping seniors by making them work longer, before being eligible for their pension; trashing

1984 and doublespeak the democratically formed Canadian Wheat Board against farmers’ wishes; 30 per cent cuts to the parks budget; eliminating the National Round Table on the environment along with the National Council on Welfare and the Canadian Foundation for Climate and Atmospheric Science. All gone. Fishery regulations are to be limited to stocks that are of human value. How do you do that without protecting their food stock and environment? Scientists say this is impossible to do. The Experimental Lakes Area, which helped highlight acid rain is gone. We can always build another lake inside out of the flies, right? The Harper government has drastically reduced the scope and time allowed for environmental reviews. Unless you own the land proposed for fracking, pipelines or extraction mining operations, keep quiet and clear off. Physicians for the Environment (CAPE) staged

a mock funeral in front of the parliament buildings, with 2,000 Canadian scientists to protest the “death of evidence” brought about by the Harper government muzzling scientists. Bill C38 exempts pest control products as no longer being poisonous or harmful. This means we will no longer have to worry about levels of pesticide, weed killers or antibiotics in our food. Over 60 per cent of all antibiotics used in Canada are fed to food animals daily to make them put on weight. No wonder that when needed for medical use, they are less effective. A $6-billion shortfall over budget predictions. Remember that the so-called tax and spend Liberals often had up to a $10-billion surplus, although mostly on the back of UIC contributions. A dramatic reduction in the billions committed for warplanes, warships and any proxy war the USA wants us in on, would help balance the budget.

Here’s mud in your eye


Dear Editor, Municipal councils in Ontario generally give the public an opportunity to ask questions at some point in the public meeting. The local press is afforded the same opportunity to further their goal of informing the public. The Municipality of Brighton has gone the other way by (temporarily?) suspending sections of its procedural bylaw which permits council members, citizens and the press to query council about items they are concerned about. The reason for the suspension of these sections is not known but one can guess that they consider them portals for those determined to cause controversy or embarrassment. In truth, this council is its own worst enemy with the majority of divisive issues coming from within council itself. The sections of the procedural bylaw suspended include: (section 6.1(1.9) Councillor Request for Information and Comment) and 6.1.14)(Question Period). Of greater concern is the administrative process behind the decision to suspend the two sections of the procedural bylaw. The meeting where the decision to sus-

pend was taken was listed on the municipal web site calendar as a, “Special Council Meeting” and scheduled for November 6, 2012. The procedural bylaw section 4.5 lists specific rules applying to special council meetings. The meeting was open to the public and I attended the morning session. A council agenda was published and the main topic was listed at Item 4.(a) to (h) It was stated to be, An Interactive Workshop for Councillors and Senior Staff. Nowhere in the agenda was there an item stating that the procedural bylaw was to be discussed and portions of it possibly suspended. In the November 19, 2012, agenda package appears a document titled, Suspension of Procedural Bylaw Sections, with the signature block of only the CAO below. It states, in part, “At the Council meeting of November 6, 2012, the municipal Integrity Commissioner reviewed the Municipal Procedural Bylaw with Council and staff. As directed by Council, the Municipal Integrity Commissioner will be undertaking a full review of the bylaw and reporting back to Council with recommendations for changes and enhancements.” The above noted sections

of the bylaw were suspended until the full review is completed. How long this will take is unknown and is apparently open-ended. We can only guess what the cost will be as the last integrity commissioner’s report cost in excess of $20,000. It also should be noted that the required motions and vote of council needed to support these bylaw changes did not appear in the meeting minutes. In fact there is no mention of the discussion regarding suspension of parts of the procedural bylaw whatsoever. I can only assume that they (council) did not wish to table the procedural bylaw changes at a regular council meeting because of the opposition they could rightfully expect from the public and the press. I can only assume that they slid the changes through at a

Dear Editor, I recently received a mail-out from our local MP, Daryl Kramp, entitled “Protecting Consumers.” In the light of the Conser-

special council meeting to minimize opposition. Of overarching interest is that in taking this route, council appears to violate its own procedural bylaw which contains protections for this sort of legislative slight-of-hand. Please note that the Municipality of Brighton Procedural Bylaw, Item 4.5 (3) states, “No Business except the business dealing directly with the items listed on the meeting agenda shall be transacted at a Special Council Meeting.” The Municipality of Brighton procedural bylaw was not mentioned on the November 6 meeting agenda. The suspension of a forum, even temporarily, whereby citizens can question their elected leaders feels very much like council has thrown mud in our eyes. Roger McMurray Brighton

There is $8 million more allocated to Canada Revenue Agency to investigate the political activity of notfor-profit charitable organizations. This is McHarper looking for enemies of the state. The two huge trade deals taking place currently will hand over Canadian sovereignty to multinational corporations and they will decide what’s good for us; actually what’s good for their bottom line, which trumps all else! There are already thousands of decent Chinese workers in mining operations across BC. There are millions more available at greatly reduced wages, for the tar sands, pipelines or any other saleable Canadian enterprise. Why is Harper so intent on selling our non-renewable resources as quickly as possible? George Orwell wrote another book worth reading, The Road To Wigan Pier. Is this also where we are heading?

Gaza: Another Pre-Election War? Anything for a buck EMC Editorial - Let’s be fair: there does seem to be some sort of pattern here, but it is not very consistent. Five times in Israel since 1980 a rightwing government has called an election without launching a complementary miliGwynne Dyer tary operation. The right lost two of those elections outright (1992, 1999), more or less tied two others (1984, 1988), and won only one of them decisively (2006). On the other hand, critics of Israel point out, three times since 1980 right-wing Israeli governments have combined an election campaign with a major military operation against some Arab or Palestinian target. And this combination, it has been argued, yields decisive electoral success for the right. Menachem Begin’s government won the 1981 election three weeks after carrying out a dramatic attack on the Osirak research nuclear reactor that France had sold to Iraq. In the view of most outside observers, the reactor, which was closely supervised both by the French and by the International Atomic Energy Agency, was not suited to the large-scale production of enriched uranium and posed no threat to Israel, but the attack was popular in Israel. Ehud Olmert’s coalition launched the “Cast Lead” onslaught against the Gaza Strip in December 2008-January 2009. The three-week campaign of massive bombardments and some ground incursions left 1,400 Palestinians and thirteen Israelis dead. The election was held a month later, and Binyamin Netanyahu emerged as the leader of a new right-wing coalition. So here we go again, perhaps? Netanyahu is still the prime minister, and the next elections are due in January. What better way to ensure success than to go and bash the Palestinians again? A week later, with eighty-six Palestinians and three Israelis dead, his re-election is assured: Israelis overwhelmingly support the current military operation. That’s the case that is made against Israel. Does it hold water? Well, actually, no, it doesn’t. Begin’s attack on the Osirak reactor in 1981 may well have been an electoral stunt, although he was clearly paranoid about the possibility of a nuclear weapon in Arab hands. But Ehud Olmert, though

undoubtedly a man of the right, was not leading a right-wing government in 2008. He was the leader of a new centrist party, Kadima, that had been formed by defectors from both the right-wing Likud Party and left-wing Labour. Moreover, Olmert had already resigned in mid-2008 over a corruption scandal, and was merely acting as interim prime minister by the time the “Cast Lead” operation was launched in December of that year. If it was an electoral ploy despite all that, it didn’t work. It was the right that actually won the election in early 2009, and formed a government led by the Likud Party’s Binyamin Netanyahu. It is equally hard to believe that Netanyahu is seeking electoral gain by attacking Gaza this month. Every opinion poll in Israel for months past has been saying that he is going to win the January election hands down. For him, all the risk of “Operation Pillar of Defence” is on the downside: a major loss of Israeli lives in the campaign, while unlikely, could only work against him. So why is this happening now? Historians traditionally split into two camps: those who see purpose and planning and plots behind every event, and those who think most events are just the random interaction of conflicting strategies, imperfect information and human frailty. This latter approach is known in the historical trade as the “cock-up theory of history,” and it is very attractive as an explanation for the current situation. Netanyahu, cruising home to an easy electoral victory in January, had absolutely no need for a little war with the Palestinians. Indeed, his strategy of continuously shouting “wolf” about Iran and its alleged nuclear weapons program has succeeded in distracting international attention from the Palestinians, leaving him free to expand Jewish settlement in the occupied West Bank unhindered. Similarly, the Hamas leaders who ruled Gaza had no interest in triggering a military conflict with Israel. They had every reason to believe that the sweeping political changes in the Arab world were strengthening their position internationally, and they had no need to remind Arabs of their plight. So how did this idiocy happen? Another cock-up, of course. But since the mini-war doesn’t really serve the purposes of any major player, it will probably be shut down again fairly soon.

Letter to the editor

Just who is “Promoting propaganda?” Dear Editor, Re. Promoting Propaganda by Oscar Zimmerman, letters to the editor, November 15. The author serves as a mouthpiece for this very thing! Just to take one example in your letter: “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 without ever seeing an Israeli soldier.” This entire premise is ludicrous, one of the worst examples of “historical revisionism.” For the true story, refer to the New York-based Jewish writer and expert on the Middle East, Dr. Alfred Lilienthal’s The Zionist Connection, What Price Peace? (Dodd, Mead & Co., 1978.) He devotes an entire chapter entitled “The Cover-up” to this event. “One such Israeli myth has been that the Palestinians all fled from their homes and land of their own volition, intending to return under the banner of victorious Arab armies recruited in neighbouring Arab lands. According to this mythology, those few Palestinians who might have owned anything have only themselves to blame, for they gambled on force and left. However, the responsibility for the Palestinian refugee problem rested squarely with the Zionist military forces, particularly the “freedom fighters,” as they were called at the time, the Begin-led Irgun Zvai Leumi, which with the Stern Gang were the principal terrorist groups … (their) attack on the small village of Deir Yassin in which 254 women, children and old men were killed and their bodies thrown down a well April 9, 1948. “Deir Yassin had done nothing to provoke this attack and

had lived peaceably in a sort of agreement with the Jewish suburbs surrounding it.” According to the victors, the idea was to let a few survivors escape and warn other Palestinian villages to flee. Even other Jewish settlers were appalled by this. In The Revolt: The Story of the Irgun, Begin boasted of the daring deeds he committed. He referred to “military victory at Deir Yassin” as greatly simplifying the task of transforming Israel into an exclusively Jewish state and admitted that the “subsequent tales of Irgun butchering” had resulted in a “maddened, uncontrollable stampede. “Of the 800,000 Arabs who lived on the present territory of the state of Israel, only 165,000 are still there … In the rest of the country, too the Arabs began to flee in terror … The Arabs who began fleeing in a panic, shouted ‘Deir Yassin’ … The political and economic significance of this development can hardly be overestimated.” Menachem Begin’s book quoted here was published in several editions and translations, the first in 1951 so Mr. Zimmerman can read this for himself if he so desires. Mordechai Nisan of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, echoes his words, expressing concern with the failure to understand, “the major significance of terrorist groups and guerrilla tactics in the struggle for Jewish sovereignty in the 1940s. Without terror it is unlikely that Jewish independence would have been achieved when it was.” We still hear complaints of terrorism! When one reads nonsense in the press, keep in mind, “who benefits.” Sincerely, Carl V. Ehrke, Belleville

By Lewis Zandbergen EMC Editorial - I knew it would come to this. Apparently, there’s more than one way to profit from saving our planet. Not only will the benefit be a longer life for our blue orb and consequently we humans, there’s profit in trash too; but we all knew that already. Yeah, waste and the diversion of recyclables from the local landfill sites are in the news again. I’ve read a couple of stories concerning the need for higher levels of diversion where recyclables are concerned; one local township thought a good solution would be clear garbage bags so those people hauling our trash away could check on the bag’s content; should there be an item or two ideally rerouted to a recycling facility they’d make the homeowner aware of their transgression. I don’t know how that’s working out; although I’m an avid recycler and regularly fish toilet paper rolls out of the bathroom trash receptacle, I know I wouldn’t want to go through a stranger’s personal detritus looking for the odd plastic bit or a tin can. Keeping recyclables out of the waste stream is a noble goal but that goal is fraught with trouble especially if some members of the populace are unwilling to take the extra minute to separate recyclables from their garbage. And you have to admit that holding up the survival of our planet as an end result is still nothing more than an abstract thought to a lot of people. It’s also a problem which isn’t unique to any one community or municipality or nation; whole television programs are devoted to the subject of how cities deal with garbage. A worldwide consumer society enamoured with single-use products, coupled with suppliers interested only in the bottom line have conspired, perhaps unwittingly (but I doubt it), to add to the overflowing landfill sites. Once it makes it to the dump, it’s covered over and for all intents and purposes, except for a possible archeological dig several centuries from now, it will never see the light of day again. One story that really piqued my curiosity came out of Havelock in which Peterborough County’s environmental services manager, Laurie Westaway, comments on the current glut on the market of Styrofoam. The story says: “The county did accept Styrofoam during the environmental day and receives it at their Pido Road site. At one point we did [accept it] but the market pretty much burned to the ground. We’re still monitoring the situation very closely and we’re getting closer to incorporating Styrofoam back into the recycling system.” In that same story Westaway also encourages people to return unwanted packaging to the retailer where possible. Okay, let me get this right. The object is to stop polluting our precious earth—but only if there’s a profit in it? Why doesn’t that surprise me? In a perfect system the recycling system should operate on a break-even basis. But that’s an improbable ideal. Her statement encouraging people to take it back to the retailer where possible is likewise ingenuous to say the least. Go ahead, show up at your favourite computer gadget store and tell them you’d like to return the superfluous packaging your computer and its peripherals came in and see what they say. However, that is an idea I could get behind. It’s high time manufacturers and suppliers of all sorts of packaging stepped up and did their part to relieve the burden our landfill sites are undergoing. And make no mistake we are never ever going to get to the point where landfill sites are no longer necessary; for that to happen we’d have to go back a long way to ensure nothing toxic enters our soil. I’ve said many times, the gratuitous overpackaging of items such as computer games or software is so unnecessary. Why do they have to surround each computer program with layers: a disk inside a plastic sleeve, inside a box, inside a sleeve of boxboard, inside a shrink wrapped piece of cellophane or whatever that stuff is. They don’t even package directions or a manual with stuff anymore; it’s included on the compact disk. A handbook used to be standard with each program purchased; they were sacrificed to “save trees.” Oh and let’s not forget the pencil pusher mercenaries who sit in their high-rise offices in the “Big Smoke” figuring out ways to supply retailers and manufacturers with ever-more ingenious ways to increase that bottom line. Another partner sits on the other side of that same office and plots the maximum efficiencies and less-for-more strategies. Don’t tell me you haven’t noticed that our frozen veggies now come in smaller bags. Has the cost gone down? Yeah, right. Manufacturers aren’t hurting; you can bet on it. Meanwhile, well-meaning municipal politicians sit by and because a large number of them are way out of their depth and haven’t a clue as to how these brilliant strategies are supposed to work, nod their heads, and the consultants and planners smile and nod their heads dreaming of huge profits and everyone’s happy no one suffered. The costs have been passed on to the peons again. The electors and ratepayers and large families and people who are doing their utmost to comply with all the rules and regulations are getting fed up. No market for Styrofoam? Stockpile it until a market opens up. Belleville EMC - Thursday, November 22, 2012


Letters to the editor

Government hands themselves another one!

Dear Editor, After seeing a photo of MP Rick Norlock wearing the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal I was curious as to what he had been nomi-

nated for, as the article did not mention it along with the details of the other recipients. After some searching, it turns out that at the gov-

ernment’s request, all MPs were awarded the medal because they are “members of the Table of Precedence for Canada.” To paraphrase the eligi-

It’s time to listen Mr. Rinaldi Dear Editor, I am writing in response to Kate Everson’s article: Rinaldi looks for input, November 8, 2012. “What’s bothering you?” he asked. “We hope to get good input.” Mr. Rinaldi does not want input from the general public, especially if it is an issue he supports! Unless of course you are on the same side he is. He proved that when a group of people (Lynn May, Christine Jansson and Ken Rose) presented a petition with over 450 names on it from the Frankford area opposing the Friends of the Trail making the Old Rail Bed into a walking only trail. He told all of those people (in person and the petitioners) that “they did not matter.” Imagine that, a public servant paid for by the people, telling them that they did not matter. I don’t get it. You were supposed to be impartial, you were anything but. Well Mr. Rinaldi, here is my input. Maybe you should start to listen, I mean really listen and not tell people that they are inconsequential; take what people say into consideration. I am not talking just your friends but all taxpayers; it may help you with your future political aspirations, or maybe not, it might be too late and people see you for what you really are, narrow minded.

Dear Editor, A letter to Rick Norlock, Dear Mr. Norlock, According to Maude Barlow, National Chairperson of the Council of Canadians, “The premiers have to reject this absolute sellout by the Harper government. Trade Minister Ed Fast might as well carry a suitcase full of money to hand personally to Europe’s big pharma lobby when he meets the European Trade Commissioner next week to announce Canada’s capitulation on this issue.

EMC News - Brighton Two down and four to go. That was the news as Health Services Recruitment Committee chairperson Bruce Davis delivered a report to municipal council on Monday night detailing their activities since the group’s inception only six months ago. “I want to thank council for recognizing the need for having a physician recruitment committee,” said Davis. “Essentially the committee acts in a prospecting role. It’s really the consideration of council and municipal staff, who will be acting as the closer. We’ll try and hook the doctor, and hope you can catch them and bring them in.” The goal for the committee is to recruit as many as six physicians over the next five years. Realization of a looming medical crisis came when Brighton-Quinte West Family Health Team executive director Nancy Archer wrote a letter to council in January detailing how, of the four doctors now practising in the municipality, three were not likely to be working within the next

Canada would automatically be awarded the honour, but why should our MPs be awarded this honour just for showing up for work? One set of rules for those on the list and another set of rules for those who didn’t make the list. Why the double standard? This is yet another example of how our politicians continue to operate with a sense of entitlement.

We call on Canadians to pressure their provincial governments to reject any Canada-EU trade deal that will make drugs more expensive for Canadians.” What are you people doing? Giving away the store again? Please explain why this is good for Canada. If you spent more time explaining these things to con-

stituents in advance and obtaining their input, instead of just those with vested interests, before making secret and arbitrary deals and then trying to ram them through as quickly and quietly as possible, the majority of Canadians would be somewhat happier with their current government.

bility requirements for the Diamond Jubilee Medal; any Canadian that has made a significant contribution to Canada and was alive on February 6, 2012. However, these requirements do not apply to Members of Parliament and Members of the Order of Canada as they will automatically receive the award. I can appreciate why a recipient of the Order of


three to five years. As well, Ministry of Health guidelines suggest a community the size of Brighton should have a minimum of eight family physicians to meet the primary health care needs of its citizens. “We need to replace three, who are approaching retirement, and we need to add an additional three, just to close the gap we currently face,” said Davis. “The fact that we have a Family Health Team and that model, as it’s progressing, seems to have more productivity potential than sole-practice practitioners.” “It looks like the days of a physician having 3,000 or more patients are gone,” he added. “The new normal seems to be about 1,200 to 1,500 patients.” So far, two doctors have been recruited, one slated to start in early 2013, the other to begin practising in 2016. The latter was a result of Dr. James Larmer’s medical student network said Davis. “That’s where we’re going to get a lot of our leads,” said Davis. “And the fact that Dr. Larmer is so engaged in this process

is really a bonus for this community.” Committee members attended a Health Professional Recruitment Tour, spanning five cities in five consecutive days. “If anyone tells you there is not a problem anymore, that the physician crisis is behind us, don’t believe it,” says Davis. “At each of these locations, there were at least 65 municipalities represented, and they’re all looking for doctors.” Out of the tour, the committee has established 49 leads – 37 that will be ready to start practice in June 2013, the rest in the following year. As well, two have already visited Brighton to have a look around. “I think that’s pretty positive,” said Davis. But there are financial implications. Surrounding municipalities are offering new doctors upward of $150,000 to sign on the dotted line. “If you do the math, rounded down to $100,000, six doctors is $600,000. And if it takes five years, that’s $120,000 per year,” said Davis. “It’s a harsh reality, but if you don’t fish, you don’t catch.”

Victim Services program renewed by Police Services Board By Kate Everson

EMC News - Quinte West The contract for Victim Services has been renewed for another year by the Police Services Board. Executive director Lisa Warriner and Patty Whelan presented information to the board about the services they offer for Hastings, Prince Edward, Lennox and Addington. “The Bail Notification and Safety Program, currently administered in Quinte West through a joint partnership with the Quinte West OPP and the Victim Services organization has been operating since May, 2009,” Warriner stated. The goal of the program is to meet the needs of the victims of violent crime, including domestic violence, sexual assault, robbery and home invasion, among others.

The notification involves addressing victim’s safety; victims of violent crime are notified of offender’s whereabouts. The Victim Services employee monitors the bail court process at the Provincial Court House in Belleville and ensures the victims understand the judicial outcomes. The victim is notified immediately once an offender has been released from custody. Referrals are also made to community agencies where direct service can be provided. “We have 700 resources available to victims of crime,” Warriner said. This program has provided service to almost 1,000 victims of crime in 2012. There were 121 bail notifications completed as well as $44,839 disbursed to local business for services rendered to victims

in Quinte West. The total cost of service to the bail program is

$25,000. “We believe that this program is vital to our

community’s health and safety,” Warriner said. Chair Jim Alyea com-

mented the program has a very busy agenda. He asked how many municipalities they served. Warriner said Quinte West is the number one provider. Patty Whelan said they help the victims and back up police. “The whole program is wonderful,” she said. “We also give counselling to victims, even children of domestic crime. If we can get them at that point, the victims’ fund will give back to the community.” Ted Reid asked if the service was not available would the police have to notify victims about the bail. Whelan said it wasn’t being done. She said someone had been killed when a victim was not notified. Reid said, “The value is very significant.” Jim Alyea added, “Carry on your good work.”

Council responds to tanning plea ago and reminded them of the CPR Holiday Train food collection coming up. In recognition, she presented Mayor Neil Ellis with a plaque of appreciation. A request from Quinte Health Care to provide $75,000 to help recruit a new pediatrician resulted in a lengthy debate, not so much about the concept but the method. Council members balked at giving such funds directly

She described melanoma, caused in young people by such tanning as “deadly but preventable.” She went on to tell how she later became an employee in the tanning industry where she was required to maintain a certain tan level. Then a couple of years later she was diagnosed with melanoma. “Support the prevention of this happening to other young peo-

ple,” she urged. She was armed with more than 40 letters from medical staff of Quinte Health Care supporting her position. Similar requests had been supported by council earlier, but dropped after the province announced it would act on the issue which had been circulated across Ontario and in municipal councils for some years.

Council was quick to respond by instructing staff to prepare a bylaw, but CAO Rick Kester reminded that it might still take staff several weeks to have the bylaw prepared and presented. Also addressing council was Susanne Quinlan on behalf of the Gleaners Food Bank who thanked council for their support for the annual Food Drive a few weeks

EMC News - Belleville There is always a little doubt regarding reaching the lofty goal of the annual Salvation Army Kettle campaign, but Captain Orest Goyak has faith. The annual Salvation Army Christmas Kettle Campaign was launched in the city last week with a goal of raising $138,000. Goyak noted funds raised from the campaign are used to help offset the costs of various local programs including the Salvation Army’s emergency food bank, its Warm Room and the lunch program. The targeted amount is $3,000 more than last year’s goal. That goal, Goyak said, was surpassed. “We’re looking forward to a pretty good year this year. We are all pumped and excited about the campaign.” Goyak said the past few campaigns have left organizers “biting their nails” as the close of the campaign drew near. “The community seems to come through every time and we’re thankful. It helps us to run our programs throughout the year and get everything taken care of,” he said. Captain Tracy Goyak added that the Salvation Army’s emergency food bank can often see up to 50 people per day, three days a week and the four-days-a-week lunch program serves approximately 100 people every day. The Warm Room varies depending on the weather but can see approximately 50 people per night. She said donations from the community go right back into the community. “What we receive stays local and goes right back into the community and the programs that service it,” she said. Thursday’s launch was held outside the Food Basics

to the hospital, even though they supported the need for such skills. Mayor Ellis reminded that there remains a surplus of about $150,000 in the fund set up years ago to recruit family doctors. The agreed arrangement by council was to reactivate the doctor recruitment committee which would use those funds both to find a pediatrician and another family doctor to replace one who left the program.

Dependable Service...


EMC News - Belleville - A heartfelt appeal for a bylaw to prohibit tanning salon use by young people drew a positive response from Belleville City Council Tuesday. Kate Neale, supported by several volunteers from the local branch of the Canadian Cancer Society, told council how artificial tanning became an “addiction” for her once she started at age 16. Now, barely over 20, she described herself as a “survivor” of deadly melanoma skin cancer with 90 per cent prospects for a return of the condition at any time and the likelihood of a shortened life. “My parents tried to discourage me,” she said, “but the tanning literature told me it was safe and it would improve my health through extra Vitamin D.” Neale and the Cancer Society were pushing for a local bylaw in lieu of the proroguing of the Legislature which had been expected to pass a provincial statute to the same effect: no artificial tanning use for people under 18 years old.

Women support fight against prostate cancer EMC News - Belleville Women care about prostate cancer too. That’s the message Belleville interior decorator and painter Jane Belnap is trying to get across with her drawn on moustache for the month of November, which has become known as Movember for men. Belnap noted she challenged her friend B.J. McLeod, owner of Quinte Paint & Wallpaper in Belleville, by wearing a fake ’stache to help him raise cash for Prostate Cancer Canada. “I said to BJ make me up a ’stache and I’ll wear one for the month,” she said. While men support breast cancer research throughout the year by wearing pink shirts or using pink belts or hockey sticks and bandanas, Belnap thinks more women should participate in Movember by wearing fake moustaches to help change the face of men’s health. “Prostate cancer you know … guys are the one that create along with the women so without the guys we don’t have new people so that’s why I feel it’s important,” she said. “By me wearing this fake moustache I want other women to be aware of Movember and what it stands for, as well as guys to know that I support the cause.” Both Belnap and friend McLeod have been affected by men close to them who

suffer or have suffered from prostate cancer. McLeod’s father, Alex, 72, has been fighting the disease. “My family has been affected by prostate cancer; my dad has been fighting in for nine years now,” said McLeod. Belnap said a lot of people have noticed her ’stache, which she says only reinforces the fact that more women should be involved. Through their actions and words, they hope not only to raise $1,000 but to raise awareness by prompting public conversation around prostate cancer and other

men’s health issues. She said she has got a few weird looks but writes it off to promoting awareness to the cause. “I tell everyone why I have a ’stache,” she said. Anyone wishing to donate can stop into Quinte Paint and Wallpaper on Bell Boulevard or call Belnap at 613-966-2622. B.J.

Pucks 4 Paws fund raiser on November 28

EMC Events - The Belleville Bulls, Hillcrest Animal Hospital and Hill’s Pet Nutrition have joined forces to host the Pucks 4 Paws event on Wednesday, November 28, at the Yardmen Arena. They are combining efforts to raise money to aid the Quinte Humane Society in the construction of a larger facility. The Quinte Humane Society is home to more than 3,000 animals a year with the number of homeless animals growing annually in Quinte. To compensate for the expanding needs, the Humane Society requires a larger facility to provide animal protection and welfare until pets are adopted out to their forever homes. “A new facility is essential

to our ability to adapt to the increase of homeless animals,” says Cheryl Lepine from the Humane Society. “We are appreciative of the support we are receiving from the Pucks 4 Paws event.” Pucks 4 Paws will take place during a regular Belleville Bulls season game as they challenge the Niagara Ice Dogs. A portion of ticket sales will go directly to the Quinte Humane Society. Additional activities and fundraising efforts will take place throughout the game such as Chuck-A-Puck and Hill’s Dog Food Bag Curling. A silent auction/raffle table will begin prior to game start with the winners announced during the third period. Mul-

Holly Bazaar raises funds for auxiliary By Kate Everson

EMC News - Trenton This year’s Holly Bazaar put on by the Trenton Memorial Hospital Auxiliary was bigger and better than ever. “We started earlier this year,” said volunteer organizer Karen White. “The tables were set up and ready for sales from 11:30 to 4. The tea room opened at 1 p.m. and the Silent Auction bids closed at 3:30. There was also a link on FaceBook to the auction items.” The Gold Party Princess was there again to buy unwanted gold and silver. “I took my gold ring to her,” said volunteer Pamela

tiple jersey auctions, including team-autographed jerseys, will provide additional opportunities to support this cause. Belleville Bulls players have each sponsored a pet at the shelter. This signed photo of the player and the animal will be given to the adopters when the pet is given a home. “The Belleville Bulls are happy to support the Quinte Humane Society,” says Scott Dickson, PR Manager for the Belleville Bulls. A very large friendly dog pulling a cart will be soliciting donations from the crowd at the game for the Pennies for Pets Initiative.

by the auxiliary members. The dolls came with a cute poem explaining their name. “When you want to throw the phone or kick the wall and shout, here’s a Dammit Doll you cannot do without. Just grip it firmly by the legs and find a place to slam it, and as you whack the stuffing out, yell Dammit! Dammit! Dammit!” “It’s a great stocking stuffer,” said Pamela with a laugh. “Sometimes you need something funny.” The bazaar was busy all day selling poinsettias and apples, baked goods, homemade crafts and gifts. The silent auction collected more money for the busy auxiliary and the tea is a perennial favourite. As a bonus, the parking was free! Lorna Simon, as Santa’s elf, walked around looking very cheery with her pink cheeks and pointed toes. “I used to have bells on the toes but they kept getting in the way!” she said with a smile.

Fathead will rock the Aron December 14 By Bill Freeman

blues groove December 14. The show is a chance for local blues fans to see the renowned band in the intimate Aron as it continues a series of concerts to celebrate 20

years in the business and their much-heralded eighth album Twenty Years Deep, The Very Best of Fathead. Havelock musician Al Lerman, a founding mem-

ber of the group and regular solo performer at Rubb’s in Campbellford, wanted local residents to see the band in action so he rented the Aron Theatre for the gig. Twenty Years Deep includes selections from the group’s seven previous recordings plus a couple of bonus tracks laid down when the band backed up Chicago blues singer Little Mack Simmons. “This is a rare opportunity to catch Fathead in Campbellford,” says Lerman. The acclaimed band of

horn player Lerman, bassist Omar Tunnoch, guitarist Teddy Leonard and drummer Bucky Berger has played across Canada in some of the country’s top clubs and performance venues. Fathead has been nominated for four Maple Blues Awards: Lerman for horn player of the year; Tunnoch for bassist of the year; Leonard for guitarist of the year and Berger for top drummer. The bluesmen are looking forward to warming up

a cold December night. Copies of the new CD will be available at the show and members of the band will gladly autograph the discs for fans. Tickets are expected to sell pretty quickly for the concert. Concert ducats are $20 each and available at the Aron Theatre box office, Rubb’s BBQ in Campbellford, the Cat Sass Coffeehouse in Norwood, Blooms and Blossoms in Havelock and at the band’s web site <>.

My Favourite Tragedy, made up of singer/songwriter North Easton backed by a rhythm section made up of bassist John Desmarais and drummer Phil Desmarais, delighted the audience with an eclectic and energetic set before Beals and partners Kris Tischbein and Brad Thompson got things rockin’ as New Age Soldier. These are two very different bands with very different sounds that are both contrasting and complementing. And whether it’s Easton’s flailing dreadlocks during his 12-string bridges or Beals’ take on feedback that rivals Neil Young, it was all a good listen. A well-deserved concert atmosphere encore, although not exactly by the books, had Beals returning to the stage, the crowd chanting the band’s name.

Local spinner and shepherd takes fleece award

By Sue Dickens

EMC News - Campbellford - Working her magic again with wool from this spinner’s flock, Grace Clare of Shepherd’s Hill, Campbellford, came home from the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair with the 2012 Reserve Champion Fleece Award. Entries from across Canada, numbered close to 50 this year. “Last year there were 54 so it’s about the same,” she told EMC after returning to her farm and her beloved sheep. No stranger to the Royal she’s been competing since 2006; she won grand champion in 2008 and reserve

champion in 2007 and 2009. Last year she won the 2011 Grand Champion Fleece Award. For Clare it’s all about the journey and the experience. This, the 90th Royal Agricultural Winter Fair saw the sheep show get under way with entries from throughout Ontario, Quebec and Nova Scotia. Master Spinner Harriet Boon was back to judge the fleece competition. The fleece auction was held Sunday, November 11, where fleece buyers gather to pay top dollar for the winners. The competition this

dium Medium Fine - she was topped by her daughter Victoria Clare who took a 1st with “Audrey” BFL X Corriedale Ewe; Grace Clare took a 3rd place win with White Medium Fine Fleece BFL X Corriedale Lamb “Flossie”; Medium Longwood - 3rd with Border Leicester Ewe “Charlie” and 4th with Border Leicester Yearling “Mary”; Specialty category - 2nd with BFL X Lamb Fleece. Clare’s journey into the

world of sheep and fleece began when she bought a few as a birthday gift for her middle daughter Kristina. “Very soon her project became my project,” she said smiling. Already into rug hooking the transition to handcarding and weaving fleece was not that big a leap. “I actually call myself a spinner wannabe,” she said laughing. She breeds Border Leic-

esters and Bluefaced Leicesters with Corriedales to achieve the kind of fleece she believes can be a winner. Clare is a member of the Warkworth Spinners and Weavers Guild, and Belleville Weavers and Spinners Guild. For Clare though it really is all about enjoying her hobby. “I love having the animals and I love making my own fibre,” she concluded.

garnered that win he said the judges take into consideration cows and heifers and “we were premier in the heifer class.” It is based on an accumulation of points. “The Royal is a North American show. The best from the U.S., east and west in Canada,” he said. “Every year the competition just seems to get better and better,” he commented. It is something of a family event. Morgon and Ethan, his sons, get the cattle ready to present. Strong supporters of 4-H, Kingsway had some cattle in the 4-H club which were exhibited by a neighbour. “They were second overall in the exhibits. They’ve done well,” said McMillan. The farm’s wins go back a long way, many at local fairs. For example, the Mc-

Millans showed well at a 4-H Showmanship and Conformation competition at the Ontario Summer Show at the Lindsay Exhibition Grounds a few years ago. The Northumberland team with a core of McMillans and the backing of Kingsway Farms garnered the highest points of any

county at the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair two years in a row. As Junior premier breeder at this year’s heifer show at the Royal, it means they won both junior banners and junior herd. The farm continues to breed award-winning Holsteins.

EMC News - Campbellford - Junior premier breeder at the heifer show. That’s the win Kingsway Farms brought home from the 90th Royal Agricultural Winter Fair.

Donation to Children’s Wish Foundation By Michael J Brethour

EMC News - Belleville A total of $62,000 has been raised in Corey Clark’s memory. A total of $11,000 was donated to the Children’s Wish Foundation last Friday evening at the Belleville Legion, mainly the proceeds from raffle tickets and fund raising surrounding the custom made guitar created by artisan Brian Walsh. The guitar was estimated to be worth at least $14,000. Linda Sheward was the lucky winner who purchased the ticket at the Havelock Jamboree and was given the instrument last month.

Cindy Clark said that to date the charitable fund raising of the Clark family has generated a total of $62,000 for the CWF “It was a cause that meant the world to Corey, The Children’s Wish Foundation provided a fishing boat for Corey as his wish while he battled terminal cancer; the fundraising initiatives of the Clark family have been an effort to repay the peace given to their son in his final years. Cindy Clark, Corey’s mom, said the Children’s Wish Foundation was a cause near and dear to her late son’s heart. “It was a cause that

meant the world to Corey. He lived life to the fullest and this cause allows other children to do the same thing in his memory which is awesome,” she noted with tears in her eyes. Katherine Rodgers, an event co-ordinator of the Children’s Wish foundation of Canada, said the support of Corey’s family goes above and beyond and the CWF is very grateful for the family’s support. “It is all voluntary, we ask everyone to help support us but it is not required. Because of what we were doing, giving those families memories, they usually come back and help us fund raise,” she said.

Rodgers added that the Clarks’ unique approach to fund raising with the custom made guitar signed by rock stars was just simply “amazing.” She said a total 1,000 wishes in Ontario have been granted since the Children’s Wish Foundation formed in 1982 and over 18,000 wishes nationally have been granted. Rodgers said the average wish is about $10,000 for the selected children between three and 17 years of age coping with a lifethreatening illness. The Clarks’ efforts thus far ensure that at least six dying children will have their final wishes granted.

EMC News - Quinte West Statistics presented at the Police Services Board by Inspector Mike Reynolds show that calls for service in Trenton have gone down but are up in Frankford. “There were some arrests in Frankford,” Reynolds said. He added that property crimes are up across the wards but the clearance rates are above the provincial average. Jim Alyea asked about the recent vandalism at the Afghanistan Memorial where plants had been knocked over. Reynolds said they are working on setting up new technology which would set off an alarm if the fencing is breached. “It is under constant surveillance,” he added. The police have arrested two young offenders for arson at a fire at Electro Cables. Gary Haveman, president of Community Policing, said their volunteers are resuming a Sports Night in Frankford with 30 to 40 young people attending each week. Members also are assisting

at the Quinte West Youth Centre sports night program on Wednesday nights with about 20 kids. Volunteers gave out 4,000 glowsticks on Hallowe’en night and will give out more at the Trenton Santa Claus parade on Sunday. The new liaison officer is Constable Dave Ludington. Community Policing has partnered with MADD Quinte to donate a set of LED Safety Road Cones to the OPP detachment to be used at local RIDE programs.

down,” Inspector Reynolds said. Ken Rose asked where this will fit in the budget. Inspector Reynolds said they have sufficient funding. Jim Alyea said this will have to come out of the city reserves. In public input, Peter Evans with Angela Quinn approached the board about an ongoing OPP criminal investigation. Evans alleges that an official of the Hastings Children’s Aid Society, an employee of the Trenton Christian School or an OPP officer committed a criminal act in regards to an alleged forged document, a letter written by a victim in Evans’ case. Inspector Reynolds stated in a letter to Evans that the OPP has conducted a thorough review of the case and during the investigation a Trenton Christian School official and the victim identified the letter and the handwriting of the little girl involved, and that at no time did presiding Justice Tranmer say this letter was a forgery. Reynolds said the review indicated there was no evidence to support Evans’ allegation. Jim Alyea said the board does not conduct investigations and suggested that Evans go to the OCCOPS or a Minister. “We are named in the pending lawsuit and will take no part in this investigation,” he said. “We are not judge and jury here.” Ken Rose said a letter from their solicitor tells the board not to entertain any comments. Evans responded that he will continue to find out

Inspector Mike Reynolds introduced two new recruits to the board: Adam Crewdson and Joseph Bailey. Michael Corp and Janet Allaire are also new. Sergeant Rick Rusticus was welcomed as a permanent member in October. Melissa Kolodziechuk received the Eric Nystedt Memorial Fitness Award, Sergeant Rene Menard received his 25-year pin and Sergeant Vandertoorn his 35-year pin. Inspector Reynolds met with Public Works and members of the DBIA and Trenton Horticultural Society regarding the state of Victoria Park. “Seniors were afraid to tend the gardens,” Reynolds said. “They were finding needles and beer bottles. We decided to cut down the trees as Stage One before winter. This will revitalize the park so anyone can go to it. Right now it doesn’t look that good, but it will look nice again.” The police board voted to pay 50 per cent of the cost of a pole-mounted speed sign with the city. The 18-inch LED light is visible from 1,000 feet and will warn drivers how fast they are going. Total cost of the used sign is $4,194. “We had one at Bayside and people were slowing

In the A final, CFB Borden Firefighters 2 defeated the Borden Fire Academy Wigs in a lop-sided 9 - 3 game which saw the mercy rule invoked after six ends (Mercy rule = please no more, you’re killing us).

The B final pitted the Ottawa Old Timers against the Toronto Oldtimers in an exciting match that went an extra end. Johnny Johnson’s team finally ran out of oxygen and succumbed to To-

ronto on Skip Laird Jobe’s final rock to give Toronto the win. Mercy rules were also invoked in the other finals: In the C division Trenton Fire defeated the KOKO Puffs (Pearson International

Airport) and in the D, Trenton Draegerman defeated CFB Borden 3. The prestigious Founder’s Trophy for the team best embodying the spirit of the bonspiel went to the KOKO Puffs. (So named

for the late Richard “KOKO” Turgeon, Fire Chief at Pearson, who it was rumoured, could put you down for the count with one punch.) The most poignant moment of the awards ceremony occurred when the firefighters observed 30 seconds of silence in homage to their home away from home: The Sherwood Forest Hotel. CFB Borden Fire Chief Skip Reid, an alleged frequent visitor, was presented with the burned and twisted pole salvaged from the wreckage. For anyone who has ever served, you would have recognized this weekend as a “regimental” or fraternal event, where the past and the present, sharing a common bond, came together to rekindle old friendships, swap war stories, and have fun, on the rocks. Our thanks go out to the sponsors of the bonspiel: Anonymous with a cash donation, Levitt Safety, Draeger Safety, and MSA Safety.

Belleville EMC - Thursday, November 22, 2012



No Trial and Error: meet a success EMC Sports - Belleville Trial and Error, though a clever spin on words, was not exactly an apt term for the inaugural Belleville Youth Swimming Team meet held in the Aquatic Centre of the new Quinte Sports and Wellness Centre. Linda Cairns, meet manager with the host BYST, said a total of 275 athletes converged on the Quinte Sports and Wellness Centre for the first-ever meet last Saturday. Cairns said those athletes were from eight teams that ranged from anywhere between Whitby and Ottawa. “The majority of athletes here today are 12 and under, primarily new swimmers that may be competing for for the first time,” said Cairns. The regular 50-metre races were set up for the beginners to practise racing, noted Cairns, but she added the day also included a 400-free and 400-IM event; these are pre-qualifiers for provincial meets or Eastern Ontario Swimming Association.

A fresh heat of swimmers leap into the water over the heads of the previous heat during the first ever BYST hosted competition at the Aquatic Facility of the Quinte Sports and Wellness Centre last Saturday. Photo: Michael J Brethour

Cairns explained Saturday’s meet allowed swimmers the chance to qualify for the regional competitions which will be held in Ottawa this year. Cairns hailed the new aquatic facility as being nothing less than perfect for the inaugural meet. “This pool is deemed a fast pool, so as far as competition that is wonderful for us. As far as parents viewing it is very nice as well with the upper deck bleachers where they can watch their kids compete,” said Cairns. She said it is the intention of the BYST to hold more and larger meets and the facilities at the QSWC are ideal for their future plans.

Bantam AE’s win one, lose one EMC Sports - The Williams Hotels Minor Bantam AE Hockey Team travelled to Peterborough on Thursday evening to play the undefeated, league leading Peterborough Junior Petes. The Bulls, however, came up short as they scored only one unassisted goal by Matt Petto against the Petes’ two goals. The Petes have taken a commanding lead in the division while the Bulls remain second overall statistically. Liam Raycroft was in net for the Bulls. On Saturday evening, however, the Bulls prevailed over the fourth-place Ajax Knights with a 2 - 1 victory. Nicholas Kyte finally broke the scoreless tie at 4:50 of the third frame. He scored both goals for the Bulls, the first on a breakaway and

the second assisted by Ben Smith and Max Hoskin from deep in the defensive zone. Alex Van Rooy was superb in net for the game and missed the shutout by 21 seconds. The Bulls now travel to Detroit, Michigan, this upcoming week where they will participate in the Motown Cup Tournament Series facing several teams in the North Michigan area. The Bulls’ next home game isn’t until Friday, December 7, when they face the Oshawa Junior Generals in Trenton at the Duncan MacDonald Arena. Game time for that game is 8 p.m. The Bulls are on the road locally when they travel to Whitby on November 28, Centre Hastings on December 1, and Oshawa on December 2.

Ky Graham ripped a slap shot past the Petes stopper. Quinte added another goal from Jacob Gilbert who would not be outdone by Graham as he too made no mistake by burying his own clapper from the top of slot. Peterborough bounced back with one of their own with a deflection from the point, and with only 1.5 seconds left on the clock in the third period, the Petes tied the game up and split the two points with Quinte. Assisting on the goals were Nolan Dawson, Ben Duval and Max Towers. In net was Matthew Tovell who played a remarkable game and had to make some unbelievable

stops to keep his team in the contest. On Sunday, the Red Devils headed west to take on the South Central Coyotes and lost a tough fought game by a score of 1 - 0. Quinte was outplaying their opponents for the better part of the first and second period. That’s when the doors to penalty box opened up and Quinte had to fight off 20 minutes in penalties. The penalty kill was great and the Red Devils did their best to regain the momentum, but the Coyotes scored with seven minutes to play and that was enough to win the game. Ethan Mcdonnell stood tall in net and played a fabulous game.

Golden Hawks stay atop OJHL east with win By Ray Yurkowski

EMC Sports - Trenton Trenton Golden Hawks scored their third win in a row in Ontario Junior Hockey League (OJHL) action last weekend with a 2 - 1 victory over the Newmarket Hurricanes. After Hawks forward Truman Landowski (assisted by Nolan Martin and Erlich Doerksen) tallied midway through the first period, seemingly, the Trenton squad was content to play a defensive game. “Yes, we were playing defence because we were playing a very good defensive team,” said head coach Jerome Dupont. “The plan wasn’t to go into a shell or anything like that. Our second period was that, but it wasn’t intentional. In fact, we were real disappointed with our second period.” The wake-up call came early in the final period, when Newmarket forward Chris Chiste tied the score. Until then, it looked as though Hawks goaltender Victor Adamo was cruising toward his first shutout of the season. But it was what the Hawks needed to start playing their best hockey of the game.

“We probably shouldn’t have had to have that happen to spur us on,” said Dupont. “We don’t want to have to come back or regain a lead if we can avoid it.”

Two minutes and five seconds later, Hawks forward Sammy Banga, assisted by Jordan Minello and Doerksen, scored the go-ahead goal. Interestingly, Newmar-

ket outshot the Trenton squad 30-21, more than half coming in the third period. “It came down to real good goaltending at both ends,” said Dupont, as Hawks netminder Adamo was named player of the game. “Newmarket is a very good team,” added Dupont. “But they haven’t much success this past weekend, so they really wanted to win this game. I thought they played very well.” The Hawks win counted for their 17th in 23 games and helped maintain their lead in the OJHL east division. The next home games are on November 23, against the Cobourg Cougars, and November 30, versus the Wellington Dukes. Both games start at 7:30 p.m. at the Duncan McDonald Memorial Gardens in Trenton.

Novice Bulls make it to the semis EMC Sports - This past weekend at the Stoney Creek Tournament of Champions, the International Truckload Service Novice AA Junior Bulls represented extremely well but bowed out in the semi-finals Sunday morning. The Bulls started out Friday against top-ranked, undefeated and eventual tourney champs the Cambridge Hawks. All the Bulls needed was one shift as Trevor Hoskin and Nathan Woods scored on the first shift of the game en route to a 4 - 1 victory handing the Hawks their first loss of the season. Cooper Matthews and Marcus Asimis picked up goals while helpers went to Corbin Roach, Matthews, Asimis and Hoskin. Game two of the day

was a sloppy 7 - 4 win over the Brampton 45’s. Roach and Hoskin led the offense each with threegoal performances and Matthews picked up the spare. Assists went to Donovan McCoy, Woods, Hoskin, Carter Lee and Reed Anderson. With the Brampton victory, the Bulls enjoyed a sleep in with a bye to the quarter-finals versus Centre Wellington, Saturday afternoon. In a rough, spirited affair, the Bulls came out on top with a commanding 9 - 1 triumph therefore punching their ticket to the semis against Hamilton Sunday morning. Hat tricks were again the flavour as Hoskin and Matthews each scored three with D. McCoy, Roach and Lee picking up the others. Woods had two

assists while singles went to Rheydon McCoy, Matthews, Asimis, Roach and Sami Douglas-Najem. Unfortunately in Sunday’s semi the Hamilton Spitfires got out to a quick start and held off the Bulls with a 5 - 2 win. Hoskin picked up both goals in the loss with D. McCoy and Ryan Bakker adding assists. Splitting solid performances between the pipes all weekend for the Bulls were Brady Spry (1-1) and Jacoby Martin (2-0). The Bulls hope to get back to their winning ways next weekend with a home date Sunday against the Pickering Panthers in Lakeshore League play where the Bulls sit first overall with a 14 - 0 record at the midway point of the season.


Minor Atoms lose a pair

Senior Trojans at National Capital Bowl final By Michael J Brethour

EMC Sports - Belleville An early lead was key to the Moira Trojans claiming victory against their Orillia Park Street counterparts during the National Capital Bowl senior football semifinal contest last Thursday afternoon. Moira scored all their touchdowns in the first half of play, then held on with tight defence to a 21 - 7 victory over the previously undefeated Orillia Park Street Trojans at Mary-Anne Sills Park on November 15. Moira Trojans quarterback Evan Cleave leaps back to avoid the grasping leap of a potential sacking by an Orillia Park Street Trojan during last week’s National Capital Bowl semi final match. Photo: Michael J Brethour

Last year, Moira won the school’s first-ever National Capital Bowl junior title. Now, the Trojans will vie for a chance at the senior bragging rights. Moira coach Dave Corbett claimed after the COSSA victory in the previous week that he was confident in the team that had seen pretty much everything and they were well prepared for Thursday’s contest. Scoring began with Moira quarterback Evan Cleave scoring on a keeper. Cullen McGrath and Scott Scrymgeour accounted for others. As far as the final cham-

pionship coming up this weekend, Corbett said the guys are ready. “They are looking forward to it,” he said. “Some of our guys thought they didn’t play that well today, so they will have their chance.” Park Street never seriously threatened in the second half, with John Davis scoring their sole touchdown on a pass from quarterback James Stevenson with about one minute to go in the game. The final is Saturday, November 24, with location and time yet to be determined.

EMC Sports - The Peter Smith Atom Minor AA Junior Bulls played in Oshawa on Saturday. The team lost 5 - 3. Goals were scored by Daniel Michaud, Cal Keneford and Trot Davis, with assists by Tom Simpson, Carter Russett, Joe Jordan, Yale Botly and Davis. The Bulls played a home game on Sunday against the Pickering Panthers, but lost 5 - 3. Two more goals were netted by Michaud, with a lone goal by Jordan. Davis picked up two assists, Russett had one.

The Belleville Hyundai Novice AE Jr. Bulls split a pair EMC Sports - The Junior Bulls won on the road Saturday with a 6 - 1 score against Pickering. Goals went to Jacob Gilham (2), Liam Reid, Trent Duncan, Jonathon Doyle and Aaron McCambridge. Backing them up on assists were Jonathon Doyle (2), Cameron Tompkins, Liam Reid, Tyson Smith and Carter Seymour.

Cassidy Dobson was in net. Myha Thomas played a great game and received the player of the game award. On Sunday, the Bulls played an awesome game at home against Kingston but came out on the wrong end of a 2 - 1 score. The sole goal of the game went to Liam Reid with Jonathon Doyle

backing him up on the assist. Cassidy Dobson played an outstanding game in net. Ryley Muir played hard and received the player of the game award. The team plays at home next weekend. Saturday is an exhibition game against Campbellford and Sunday they play Port Perry.

Christmas is coming to Farmtown Park EMC Events - Stirling At the local museum, it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas. And with countless volunteer hours already spent in preparation, organizers at Farmtown Park’s Heritage Village aren’t surprised. “We’ve been at it for a while,” says Christmas at Farmtown Park event chair Harry Danford who, along with creative direction provided by Lynda Ackey, has been overseeing much of the planning for the returning event that runs in conjunction with the annual Star Lite House Tour on November 22. While the house tour is scheduled for a single day, Christmas at Farmtown Park will run from Thursday, 4 to

9 p.m., through Sunday, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., including all day Friday and Saturday. And while it has been absent from the museum schedule in recent years, Danford was committed to bringing it back. Last week volunteers were in Heritage Village hanging decorations and preparing some of the many raffle items and sale tables for the coming weekend. “I think it’s going to be really good,” says Ackey of the weekend celebration that features dozens of trees, swags and Christmas ornaments available for raffle as well as decorating ideas for the season. Trees have been painstakingly decorated and themed, whether for hunters, farmers, cooks or ballerinas, and displays


Drs Sue and John Marinovich and staff have been serving the dental community of Quinte since 1994.

throughout are trimmed with red and green. Boxes are set up with each display for the raffle, but Ackey says there are plenty of other reasons for attending as well. The streetscape is quite literally filled with ideas. Decorative fireplaces have been set up and lights strung from the various buildings and railings that line the village. Many of the storefronts feature décor reflecting the business within and gift ideas abound. And during any window shopping in Heritage Village in the coming days, portable heaters will be used during the event to take the chill off. As well the event represents one of the museum’s primary fund raisers and Danford

Christmas at Farmtown Park creative chair Lynda Ackey has been horsing around in Heritage Village for much of the past week. She is one of many volunteers preparing for the weekend event that marks its return to the local museum in conjunction with the annual Star Lite House Tour.

says any success will come thanks to a large number of participants and volunteers as well as sponsors and supporters who have already committed to the project or have yet to arrive.

“It is a significant fund raiser for us,” he says, adding while there has been a great deal of work involved, the four-day event means there will be plenty of opportunity to visit

to trickle in he says, after presenting the case to a few local businesses and service clubs. “Let’s get to work on refurbishing the whole thing and get it cleaned up once and for all.” The challenge, though, is the provincial government owns Presqu’ile lighthouse because it’s located in one of their parks. But there might be a glimmer of hope. Effective July 1, 2010, the Standards and Guidelines for the Conservation of Provincial Heritage Properties became mandatory for all Ontario ministries.

According to the Ministry of Tourism and Culture, in their Standards and Guidelines for Conservation of Provincial Heritage Properties, published in April 2010: “If a ministry or prescribed public body has not evaluated a property in its care or control, and if that property contains a building or structure that is 40 or more years old, then the ministry or prescribed public body shall prevent the building or structure from undergoing demolition by neglect.” What is the immediate plan for the lighthouse?

Saving a Brighton icon

EMC News - Brighton - A local activist group is hoping it isn’t lights out for the Presqu’ile Point lighthouse. BrightonresidentNorman Bastin says his group, the “Keepers of the Presqu’ile Point Lighthouse,” is an idea he’s had in mind for a long time. About five years ago, he approached the Friends of Presqu’ile Park with an eye toward restoring the lighthouse. But that was when the Friends were engaged in another major project at the park, reconstructing the marsh boardwalk. Money is already starting

Reba is coming to Havelock By Bill Freeman

EMC Entertainment Havelock - Reba is coming to Havelock. You really don’t need to mention the last name but megaselling singer, Hollywood celebrity and fashion entrepreneur Reba McEntire is bringing her Grammy winning star power to the twenty-fourth annual Havelock Country Jamboree. With 56 million albums sold, the Jamboree has every right to be floating on air after announcing McEntire’s presence next August. Adding more sugar to the drink will be two-time Grammy winners Kathy Mattea and Travis Tritt appearing on the Jamboree’s new and bigger twin stages. “We are ecstatic, words cannot express how happy we are,” the Jamboree’s Jennifer Goheen told the Northwest EMC. “Our fans have been asking for Reba for years.” “Our fans and really the whole world loves Reba, she’s a household name,” Goheen said. “It’s such an honour to have her at the jamboree. Our fans went crazy when we announced.” The Jamboree has been working with Reba’s team for the past three years in an effort to bring the singer to Havelock. Also confirmed so far

are rising Canadian stars Gord Bamford, Dallas Smith and Americans Billy Bear and BR-549. “This is going to be a fantastic year for us with the new stages and the lineup is off to such a great start we had to share the news early with our fans.” Reba is one of just four entertainers to receive the National Artistic Achievement Award by the United States Con-

gress; she’s had 64 top ten hits and needs a section of her house to hold all the music honours: 15 American Music Awards, 13 American Country Music Awards, nine People’s Choice Awards and seven Country Music Association Awards. She’s also a television star with a new show Malibu Country. Along with the hits, Reba will also be bringing music from her thir-

ty-fourth album All The Women I Am. Kathy Mattea, a best female country vocal Grammy winner and two-time Country Music Association female vocalist of the year, is making her Havelock debut. With her number one hit 18 Wheels and a Dozen Roses, Mattea was the first female performer to spend multiple weeks on the Billboard Country singles charts since Dolly Parton’s You’re The Only One. Mattea is also a deeply committed social activist supporting such projects as “Red Hot and Country” and speaking at pre-

the structure of the new stages. “All we know at this point is the old design works so well with weather cover, side-by-side for easy switch between bands and it really is our trademark so expect close to the same idea but on a much larger scale.” Larger acts ask for a minimum 60 by 40 foot stage “so that would be the smallest we’d consider. “In the end, load bearing and safety are our key focus in the design as well as shelter from possible weather conditions. [There’s] much to consider.”

According to the 20-year Presqu’ile Provincial Park Management Plan, issued in October 2000, not much. Despite being featured on the cover, the structure is barely mentioned. “The long-term protection of the lighthouse is important to the Ministry,” says MNR senior media relations officer Jolanta Kowalski, in a reply to questions asked by EMC newspapers last week. “[But] Ontario Parks has many demands for the capital funding it receives. The priority for capital funding is on health and safety initiatives and up-

grades or replacement of aging infrastructure. Repairs to the lighthouse are evaluated annually and assigned a priority against other capital projects.” But she adds, “The Ministry is always open to exploring partnerships; particularly for a project like this where there are a number of interests. We would encourage any groups that have interest in the care of the Presqu’ile lighthouse to contact the park superintendent to explore partnership opportunities.” The lighthouse, originally built from limestone in 1840, was clad in cedar

shingles 54 years later to prevent further decay. Workers from preservation experts, Skyhigh Restoration, were at the site early last week to replace damaged or missing shingles on the outer wall. “It’s so piddley little,” said Skyhigh boss Tom Plue. “The building is really in very precarious shape.” “There’s no air circulation in there whatsoever,” he added. “And that’s what’s making it fall apart. The moisture got in between the walls and kept working its way in.” Renowned historical architect and preservation advocate Peter Stokes agrees.

“There’s no point in trying to keep the water out if the water is trapped inside,” he said. “It’s a critical situation. If the ventilation problem isn’t attended to fairly quickly, the whole thing is just going to fall in a pile of rocks. “When it was being used, of course, it was regularly ventilated by things being opened and shut.” Bastin points out, of all the advertising focused on attracting visitors to the area, none mention the lighthouse, one of the oldest on the Great Lakes. “We’ve got an icon here,” he said. “Something that’s more than 170 years old.”

“It’s not just conservation anymore,” says historical architect Peter Stokes. “It’s repair, so the thing doesn’t collapse in a pile of stones, to everyone’s embarrassment, after very carefully spending money keeping the shingles on the outside to keep the water from getting in. Water is already in and that’s the problem.” Photo: Ray Yurkowski

Ameliasburgh - “There used to be more than two dozen lighthouses in our area, stretching from Kingston harbour to Presqu’ile,” says Save Our Lighthouses executive director Marc Seguin. “Today, that number has been reduced to about six and, as poor shape as it’s in, the Presqu’ile lighthouse is one of the lucky ones. It’s still around.” Last weekend Seguin presented his case for local lighthouses during an illustrated talk on the history, architecture and uncertain future of our historic maritime symbols at the Ameliasburgh town hall. The Quinte Branch

of the Architectural Conservancy of Ontario sponsored the event. “These are important parts of our heritage,” he said, in an interview last week. “The marine heritage in Ontario is often overlooked but, without it, the province wouldn’t have developed at all. Shipping was the lifeblood of our province for well over 100 years.” “Presqu’ile was really important,” added Seguin. “It was really the only port in a storm for ships going from Kingston to Toronto for decades. It was the only place where they could safely stop, so it was really important to have that lighthouse there.”

Salvation Army relocates EMC News - The Municipality of Tweed would like to inform residents that the Salvation Army Food Bank and Thrift Shop has changed locations.

The sky’s the limit for Island Park resident

“We want to enable people to do something they’ve always dreamt of and don’t want to let age hold them back,” said Krista Hazlewood, lifestyle consultant/ director of recreation at Island Park Retirement


EMC Lifestyles - Campbellford - The sky’s the limit for Helen (Thain) Rodgers who at 91 years of age decided to follow her dream, an airplane ride over Trent Hills.

Community. “This is what our company Specialty Living stands for,” she added. “As part of our Zest for Life program we focus on individual dreams for our residents by providing the opportunity for them to be inspired in fulfilling their life’s dreams,” she said. Sitting in the van used by the retirement home for transportation EMC went along for the ride, well part of the ride anyway. Rodgers was quite calm about her pending flight. Hazlewood had learned about her “dream” to fly in an airplane again during interviews with residents that had been conducted by Sue Dempsey who was doing a work placement as part of her training to become a Personal Support Worker (PSW). “Just because you are living in a retirement home it doesn’t mean that life is over. Actually it can mean that life has just begun,” said Hazlewood. “We want to break the mould that all you do when you get old is play bingo or play cards,” she added. “My philosophy as a program director is if there is something you want to do let me know about it and I will do my best to make it happen.” For Rodgers it was the chance to spread her wings so to speak and go on a new adventure. A newcomer to Island Park, Rodgers was a school teacher for 17 years. She became a special education specialist while teaching in Stirling. In fact she was teaching

when her husband Don (now deceased) decided to learn to fly. So Rodgers is no stranger to riding in airplanes. “My husband had taken flying lessons so I thought if I was going to be up in the air with him I wanted to know what was going on,” she said with a grin.

Reality Check:

Sheila Wray Gregoire EMC Lifestyles - I’m addicted to Diet Pepsi. I don’t drink a lot of it: usually only a can a day, and I make myself wait until 11:30 before popping it open. But that urge hits me by 10:45. I turn to Diet Pepsi because I’m not a coffee person. Nevertheless, I’m a big fan of

caffeine. And so I drink Diet Pepsi, knowing that caffeine and aspartame are bad for me, because I figure the pick me up outweighs the potential dangers. I know what I need to do: I need to sleep more so I don’t need the caffeine. That, however, requires effort. And so I turn to the quick fix. We live in a quick fix society. We spend money on lottery tickets rather than investing in our RRSPs on the hope that we can turn ten dollars into one million. Sexually we turn to pornography and erotica for instant gratification, rather than doing the hard work of communication, commitment, and vulnerability that rela-

The Good Earth: EMC Lifestyles - It seems to be that time of year, Gentle Reader, when there is so much happening it is difficult to focus on just one topic. So, here is another O&S. O&S #1 Afghanistan Repatriation Memorial. It was my great privilege to have played a small part in the construction of this memorial. It seems that a person has torn out some of the plantings in an apparent act of vandalism. I’m sure everyone has noted that the actual monument has not been damaged. I know the city has responded quickly and the plants have been replaced. I have read many of the comments in the local newspapers and heard the talk around town. I’d like to bring in another perspective, one of grace. Memorials of this type bring out strong emotions in people including anger, guilt, grief, despair, sadness and helplessness. Many

people, and I certainly include myself, are sometimes not able to deal with the overwhelming strength of these emotions in a controlled, rational manner. Is it possible that the person who ripped up a few plants was experiencing some of those feelings and directed them toward plants instead of the monument? We don’t know. If so, then perhaps we might direct our thoughts to compassion. It could turn out to be an act of vandalism and there are methods with which to respond if that is so. My thoughts are to step back, calm down and keep an open mind.   O&S #2:  Leafing your Carbon. A repeat of last week’s O&S#1 in the hope that it was an off week and Gentle Reader has returned to the column. Far too many bags of leaves are being set out on the curb for municipal pickup; 99 per cent of the work for creat-

Our quick fix society

tionships entail. We buy freezer meals rather than cooking. We pull into the Tim Hortons drivethrough rather than brewing our own coffee. We click the “Like” button on Facebook to show our solidarity rather than picking up the phone and calling a friend. Perhaps the reason we chase after leisure and ease so much is because it seems attainable. Take, for instance, the food we eat. Today we choose food based on “what do I feel like eating?” rather than “what is left in the pantry?” We have it easy. When your family had to raise everything you ate, you couldn’t afford to waste anything. That’s why unlike the pre-

vailing opinion that most of Scottish cuisine is based on a dare, I think most of it was based on necessity. “Hmmm, we have nothing left except the sheep intestines and bladder. Wonder what we could do with those?” This quest to eat stuff up explains fruitcake, too. Our ancestors had all this dried fruit they had to do something with, so they put it in a cake to make it slightly more palatable. Now that we have chocolate cheesecake, though, fruitcake no longer serves any useful purpose. While we may gladly bid adieu to fruitcake, though, I fear we are guilty of tossing aside some of the good things that our culture used

to understand. We believe, for instance, that hard work was once a means to success and leisure. Now that success and leisure may be garnered without as much hard work, then hard work is no longer necessary. Yet what if hard work was not just a means to an end, but was actually an end in and of itself? After all, look at the people who have achieved mega success in our culture with very little work. How many of the reality TV stars who grace our magazine covers are content with their lives? After reading of detox centres and breakups and affairs, it’s hard to believe that they have achieved real joy. Hard work, on the other

hand, gave people purpose, satisfaction and a sense of empowerment. It may be the antithesis of our quick fix society, but it should not be abandoned. The character that was built by working hard and then reaping the reward built the very culture that our quick fixes are now tearing down. I know we can’t go backwards, and I’m too rooted in this culture to do so anyway. As soon as I’m finished this column, I’ll reach into the fridge and pull out another Diet Pepsi. But there’s still a part of me that says, “There is a better way.” I hope we never stop hearing that little voice urging us to higher things.

Odds & Sods #6 ing your own leaf mould (Mother Nature’s original soil amendment before somebody drained a peat bog) has been done. Just find an outdoors out-of-the-way spot to leave the bags over the winter. In the spring, stomp on the bag before opening and then pour the dried up bits over any growing area, veggie plot, flower beds or lawns. The only carbon footprint made will be the imprint of your size 10’s on the bag. O&S#3 Horticulture and Education. Landscape Ontario Horticultural Trades Association is actively involved in our schools promoting the industry. This week just past, I was privileged to be involved in a Teacher’s Carousel hosted by the East Central Ontario Training Board. At this event, teachers were invited to meet with representatives of the Skilled Trades to focus on

maths and sciences. From my perspective, it is not enough to know formulae or scientific facts; we have to be able to relate such things to real situations. In other words, there needs to be a marrying up of the academic with the practical. Next week, Terry Childs from Nature’s Way in Gananoque will be representing our industry at a Trade Fair in Kingston with St. Lawrence College. Teachers, parents and students, horticulture can provide a good, profitable and satisfying career, but there is no room for ignorance. O&S#4 Cut Christmas Trees.  These dead trees are beginning to clutter up the garden centres, gas station parking lots and occasional church or school yard. The air is redolent with the stench of rotting tree carcasses.  When customers come to purchase these green fuzzy sticks, they ask many questions, some

not being thought out as well as they could be. Now, I want you to know, GR, that none of my customers have ever been heard to ask any of these questions. I’ve just collected these from word of mouth, you understand. How much? Is this all you have? (Okay, those two were for the benefit of us folk who sell these things; they’re the two most common questions and often asked as the customer is standing in front of the prices sign surveying the entire lot.) Can I put this ten-foot-tall tree in my Mini Cooper? (Yes you can, we were very surprised at how much of the tree did fit inside.) If I buy the big tree bag, can I store the tree until next winter? (Of course, that way you won’t have to buy a Yule Log for the fireplace next year.) How did you prune the tree to grow inside the wrapping? (A true question.) Are the Scotch pines really from Scotland? How come you’re not a PC

Dan Clost (politically correct) place? You sell white pine, where’s the black pine? (Pinus nigra makes a lousy cut Christmas tree, that’s why.) If I buy an eight-foot tree and ask you to cut a foot off the bottom, shouldn’t I only have to pay the seven-foot cost? What kind of fertiliser do I use? A bit of explanation for this next one:  Fraser Firs are a premium tree known for hanging on to their needles longer than any of the other cut trees. Question:  I know where the Fraser River Valley is but where is the Balsam River Valley?

Bonin’s work appearing at exhibition in Italy EMC Lifestyles - Stirling When local artist Donna Bonin wraps up her annual art show and sale at her home studio on Oak Lake this weekend, she’s heading to Italy for her first exhibition there. Bonin, a retired school

teacher who continues to offer art instruction, is beginning to earn an international reputation and was one of 24 artists from around the world invited to participate in the Florence exhibition at the Auditorium of the Duomo. The show is titled

The Modern Masters and Bonin has few details on the other participants but notes it is a privilege to be among those given consideration. And while exhibiting artists are often required to send a portfolio, “I didn’t have to do that.” It all came about,

Bonin says, as a result of a spring show this year in New York and the exposure that resulted. And a “huge and favourable” piece in Artis Magazine didn’t hurt either. Bonin explains that while she was allowed to send as many as ten paintings to Europe for the month-long December show, she eventually opted to send only four, with shipping costs being prohibitive. But making the selection was no easy process.

Amsterdam’s changing image

The Red Light District’s prostitute statue. By John M. Smith

EMC Lifestyles - When I ask people what comes to mind when they think of Amsterdam, the most popular response (often accompanied by a nervous giggle) is to its famous “Red Light District.” After all, Amsterdam has long had a reputation as a very open, tolerant, and liberal destination, with its raunchy sex shops and shows, its legalized prostitution, with the women “advertising” in their red-lit store windows, and its “Cof-

fee Shops” with its marijuana and hashish. A stroll through this seedy area has been a popular tourist attraction for a very long time (the area dates back to the 14th century). However, Amsterdam’s city council has recently announced plans to do a major cleanup of the area, and to introduce tough new legislation aimed at reducing criminal activity and corruption here. “Project 1012,” named after the area’s postal code, plans “to strengthen the

area’s unique character and stimulate an economic upgrade.” Prostitution will still be legal here, but the actual number of streets in the Red Light District will be reduced, and some of the former brothel windows and sex trade buildings will be converted into trendy new shops, hotels, and restaurants.  There will also still be coffee shops, with cannabis freely smoked, but there will be fewer of them, too, and as of January, 2013, they will no longer be open to tourists. They’ll then be considered to be “private clubs,” limited to Dutch residents who are older than 18 and who carry a so-called “dope card.” It will be interesting to watch this transformation, which is expected to take “at least ten years” of changes, what it will do to the city core itself and to its tourism industry.  One local told me this cleanup could actually cause greater problems, for “it could ultimately lessen the number of tourists who visit and therefore hurt our economy.” This same individual told me that “many young tourists have been attracted here because of our liberal drug laws, and if they can no longer visit the coffee shops legally, they may illegally buy off the streets which would lead to major drug trafficking

“Coffee shops” for marijuana use are plentiful.

problems.” Yet another person worried about what the new drug laws would do to the annual “Cannabis Cup,” which is held in Amsterdam every autumn, where visitors have traditionally been able to sample such foods as hemp burgers, and the coffee shops have competed for the distinction of best marijuana and best hemp products.

to the millions of people around the world who earn their money in prostitution.” We also encountered several narrow streets in this area, with beautiful old buildings that were leaning at a variety of angles. There were also tree-lined canals and unique “establishments,” including a radio station in one of the for-

Amsterdam’s Red Light District is, indeed, a fascinating area of the city, but the city has many other intriguing attractions, too, including several important museums such as Rijksmuseum, Stedelijk Museum, Van Gogh Museum, and Anne Frank House; parks including the Botanical Gardens and Vondelpark;

Amsterdam’s “Pink Points” offer gay and lesbian information.

The project poses an interesting dilemma and it will take time to see what really happens: regeneration or regression? Could this cleanup project negatively affect tourist revenue?  Would tourists really be “turned off” by a cleaner, safer downtown core? On my last visit to Amsterdam, I did the “touristy stroll” through this infamous area, with my guide, and the area was, indeed, quite popular and sleazy and the majority of the visitors appeared to be simply curious onlookers, like me.  It’s as if we just wanted to know what all the fuss was about.  There were not a lot of tourist cameras in view here, for no photography of the “working women” is allowed, and it’s strictly enforced.  We walked past a bronze statue of a prostitute which, according to former prostitute Mariska Majoor, is “meant to show respect

mer cubicles, a marijuana museum, an “Erotic Museum,” and a “Prostitution Information Centre.” As we strolled along, it quickly became apparent that the upgrading and revitalization of this area was already in progress. For example, we passed  the 14th century ‘‘Oude Kerk” a Gothic-style church which is now being renovated, and I was told by my guide that the brothel windows, located very near this beautiful old church, are scheduled to be closed soon.  We also passed several restored Delft houses and newly transformed exhibition space and studios.

Three Days Grace is coming home

EMC Entertainment - Peterborough - Norwood’s award winning mega rockers Three Days Grace are coming home to Peterborough for a rare series of intimate club gigs December 11, 12 and 13 at The Venue to raise money for three worthy charities including the James Fund which is dedicated to the indomitable spirit of Peterborough’s James Birrell. It’s been at least five years since the chart-topping band performed in the Peterborough area. They memorably rocked the Asphodel-Norwood Community Centre in a special concert to help the Norwood Lions Club. This past summer they headlined Big Music Fest at Zwicks Park in Belleville. The band has sold over six million albums in the United States alone and has proud roots in Norwood where bassist Brad Walst and lead singer and guitarist Adam Gontier went to school and cut their musical chops around

the area with their band Groundswell. Peterborough’s Neil Sanderson on drums and guitarist Barry Stock round out the superstar band. Their latest album, Transit of Venus, is already a hit. My Darkest Days, another Norwood band that’s shot to fame, will open all three shows. MDD has been headlining concerts across the United States supporting their new album and spent much of the summer opening for Nickelback on North America’s biggest stages. The December 11 concert will aid the James Fund, the largest umbrella group in Canada for neuroblastoma families with its roots in Peterborough. The organization has funded cuttingedge research into the rare children’s cancer. On December 12 the bands will play for Road Recovery which is “dedicated to helping young people battle addiction and other adversities by harnessing the influence of entertainment industry professionals

who have confronted similar crises and wish to share their experience, knowledge and resources.” The final December 13 gig will support the Herbie Fund which brings children from around the world to the Hospital for Sick Children for “live-saving or life-altering surgeries, surgeries that are not available in their home countries because of high costs and lack of medical expertise.” All three shows are being presented by The Wolf 101.5 FM. Tickets for the Three Days of Giving concerts are available at Ticketmaster outlets, Live Nation and the Rogers Wireless Box Office. Three Days Grace is partnering with CID Entertainment to offer $200 VIP packages for all three shows; the packages include general admission tickets with early entrance, a meet and greet with band members and a 3DG T-shirt. All the profits from the VIP sales go to the respective nightly charities.

ATVers offer input at county review By Bill Freeman

EMC B Section - Thursday, November 22, 2012



EMC News - Norwood The Havelock and District ATV Club continues to press its case to have Peterborough County’s ATV bylaw expanded to allow trail users access to the village of Havelock and Cordova Mines. Club president and Havelock-Belmont-Methuen Eastern Ontario Trails Alliance (EOTA) representative Phil Higgins offered input during a public meeting in Norwood on the oneyear-old bylaw. As part of the legislation, the bylaw, which expires at the end of November, must undergo a public review which will form the basis of a report to county council by public works manager Chris Brad-

ley. “We’re not here to talk about banning ATVs or opening everything up,” said Bradley, “It’s to get material and feedback so I can report to council so they can make a decision on where they’d like to go.” The bylaw allows short sections of gravel shoulders on county roads within townships with ATV bylaws to be used to connect to existing trails. HBM has its own ATV bylaw and is the only municipality in the county with an agreement in place that allows county road use on designated sections. “I’m not about ATVs and ATVs alone,” Higgins stressed. “We are truly looking to develop a mul-

tiuse trail with other trails that are out there.” The EOTA has over 2,400 kilometres of developed trails stretching to the Quebec border with links to Cordova Mines and an eight-kilometre stretch into Belmont Township; the club has developed over 100 kilometres of its own township trails and Higgins says there’s potential to access 6,000 kilometres of trail if the county would “expand” local access through its bylaw. “It’s not about using the road as an ATV trail; it’s to safely connect short sections of road to the trail and to other trails and to economic services,” Higgins said. “Using the roads to connect to trails is a privilege and

there’s a set of rules that govern use.” “In terms of safe use of ATVs on roads the county’s bylaw has been a resounding success,” he said. “No doubt about it, the problems are disappearing.” But the bylaw is too restrictive, Higgins adds because it limits county road connections to one kilometre or less and only on the gravel shoulders on permitted county roads. Trail users are stopped 2.8 kilometres short of Havelock; they are also “disconnected” from Cordova and “stranded” at Twin Lakes. “The only legal thing they can do is turn around and spend their money elsewhere,” Higgins said. “That one piece [at the 7th Line and County Road 48] would give trail users access to the village. This bylaw doesn’t support the economic benefits to be gained from tourism.” Higgins and the ATV Club want to work “constructively” with the county to remedy these shortcomings. “We need more connections and longer connections. We’re not talking miles and miles, just something a little bit longer” in order to make it possible for trail users to access services in places like Havelock and Cordova. Riders access Tim Hortons in Madoc and Bancroft but can’t in Havelock, Higgins noted. Even if an ATV were legally able to move from a trail to Havelock it would not be able to visit its economic core because George Street is a county road and doesn’t have gravel shoulders. “Let’s look at the distance by connecting the trail to the community.”

Batawa Riverfront Trail proposal presented to Public Works signs and a parking area. It is also designed to protect the shoreline of the river, improving water quality downstream. Heather Candler from Batawa Development Corporation noted the Batawa Lions Club has adopted that part of the highway at the end of the trail. Sacred Heart School will include it in their curriculum with environmental studies. “It’s a great partnership,” she said. “We are glad to lend support.” Jim Alyea asked, “Where does Parks Canada land end?” He said he thought it went right up to the shoreline along the river. Chris Angelo of Public Works said the city has identified that the majority of the land belongs to the city. The road allowance was acquired from the province. “The city owns right up to the edge,” he noted. Alyea said there is not a lot of room there by the edge of the river, especially on lands owned by Sonoco. He asked if this will be a multi-use trail open to ATVs. Gray said the design is up to the city. “Whatever the city wants to do with it,” Gray said. “We have the chance to build a nice trail.” Keith Reid noted that the Lower Trent Trail from Trenton to Frankford is cut

off for walking only. Gray said he has no control over it. It is the Lower Trent Trail. “Whatever the stakeholders want,” he said. Chuck Naphan said there is a trail further north for uninterrupted travel. “It is a marvellous thing,” he said. “It could be a drawing card to the Trent Severn system. It would be a shame not to take advantage of it. One continuous trail would be especially advantageous with a new marina.” Mayor John Williams asked Heather Candler if Batawa allows motorized vehicles on their trails. Candler said, “Yes, it is open to every type of use.” She acknowledged that in some areas they had put up barriers to prevent dumping garbage on the property. Jim Harrison said he had concerns about the steep bank along the waterfront part of the trail. John Harris asked if the city would have more maintenance and liability with this trail on its land. Angelo said there would be no additional maintenance, but the grass clearing would be continued. He added that there is liability insurance for the trail. “We have ATVs on the road now,” he noted. He added that a multi-use paved trail is the first part of a vision for the waterfront.

EMC News - Quinte West A presentation on the proposed Batawa Riverfront Trail was made to the Public Works and Environmental Services committee on November 13 by Bill Gray, chair, Friends of the Trail. Gray said they are applying for $25,000 from the Great Lakes Guardian Community Fund to help build a two-kilometre multi-use trail along the river across from Batawa. This would connect with trails in Batawa as well as the Lower Trent Trail. The land is owned by Quinte West. “There is a lot of community involvement,” Gray said. He noted that the Batawa Lions Club and Sacred Heart Catholic elementary school in Batawa have committed to volunteering, along with Friends of the Trail. Golder Associates have donated an environmental review and Carleton University students are designing support for various trail elements. Project management will be done by Friends of the Trail with the city of Quinte West and Batawa Development Corporation. The loop trail would begin the end of November and take a year to complete. It would include removal of invasive species and the planting of natural grasses and plants, the design and installation of interpretive

Forever in our hearts. - Mom & Dad (Matthew & Elizabeth Penney)

And now, even though we can’t see each other everyday, You are still in my thoughts… And in my heart Love and miss you Sis, always Debbie, Leo and family
