Rollins hangs up the date stamp


By Richard Turtle

EMC News - Spring Brook - With a family history of nearly a century of postal service, and after more than 40 years as the community’s postmaster, Mariel Rollins will be retiring at the end of this week. “I’ll be hanging up the date stamp for the last time,” Rollins says reflecting on a long career that is coming to a bittersweet end. “It’s been a rewarding job,” she notes, adding she has many fond memories of the post office, many of which date back to her youth. “I grew up with it,” she says of the Canada Post outlet that operated from her parents’ general store where her mother, Hazel Mumby, took over the position of postmaster from her father William F. Bateman. And Rollins well remembers spending time in the store watching her mother, before “I got big enough and I could see over the counter.” And while there have been a lot of changes since her first day as postmaster in 1972, the sense of community surrounding the post office has remained a constant, she says, where “you count every neighbour as your friend.” And she admits she will miss her work, but is looking forward to sharing retired life with husband Paul and remaining active in the community. “It’s always been home for me,” she says. And as her retirement date of June 1 approached, Rollins’ reflection on the past years turned into a local history project. “I’m putting together a scrapbook,” she says of her latest endeavour,

Jailhouse Information Centre gets a financial boost By Scott Pettigrew

EMC News - Tweed - A large number of dignitaries including Prince Edward-Hastings MP Daryl Kramp, Tweed municipal councillors, members from the local Community Futures Development Corporation (CFDC) and Hastings County Warden Rick Phillips crowded into the historic Smallest Jailhouse in Tweed to listen to Mayor Jo-Anne Albert announce $7,000 in upgrades to the tourist information centre.

“Joey Walsh, our former economic development officer, was a key person in putting in the application for the EODP funding,” said Mayor Albert. “He also helped out a lot at the jailhouse last summer and saw the need for the equipment we purchased. Meredith Dunham is this year’s summer student and we are able to employ two other students to work part time.” Mayor Albert continued, “I would like to thank the CFDC and

CFDC general manager MaryLynne Rutledge for the funding opportunity, which allowed us to make improvements to our tourist information centre to enhance the visitor experience and offer some fun and enjoyment to our locals and out-of-towners who stop in at the jailhouse. We now have a wonderful new sign above the door of the jailhouse as part of the grant and inside we have new display racks as well as a new computer and printer. We also

have our new “jailbirds” where people can have their pictures taken and printed right on the spot.” Mayor Albert went on to say that all of the work was done locally. “We had a local contractor build the wall unit and Linda Myrie did an excellent job on the sign work. We want to make sure that all the work goes to local employers. Our brochure rack is filled with all our events

but we also have an area for business cards and we encourage businesses to give Meredith your cards so she can display them for people passing through.” “The jailhouse has a character of its own and will showcase an important part of Tweed’s heritage,” said MP Kramp, “I think it is a wonderful spot for tourist information strategically because of its location; but it is also unique enough to attract Please see “Jailhouse” on page 3

attention. Thanks to the CFDC for recognizing that this is an area to build on and thanks to the municipality of Tweed for working on needed capital improvements. There is great long-term bang for

the buck out of having an improved information centre. Tweed is the gateway to eastern Ontario; with many other areas filling up, we are the new frontier for tourism coming out of Toronto and larger metropolitan areas.

explaining the intention is to complete a comprehensive and chronological history of the post office here. Much of the material already collected has been clipped from long ago newspapers or taken from family photo albums but while the archiving is near complete, Rollins says, she is hoping to fill in the blanks as well as uncover any older printed material, from photographs to stories. In 1972, Rollins and her husband purchased the building from her parents, operating both the post office and store until the latter closed in 1990, and continue to live in the adjoining home. “It’s nice to be able to walk to

work,” Rollins says indicating the door behind the post office counter, adding there was always something new to talk about when she arrived. “I really enjoyed dealing with the people,” she says. “And I hope I served them well.” Among the most dramatic changes, she says, has been the price of stamps, but the shipments have changed as well. In her younger days Rollins recalls the stacks of cheese or unpackaged rolls of cable that regularly travelled through the mail. The cheese, she says, was nearly always outbound. “At Christmastime,” Rollins recalls, “this whole counter would be covered with parcels of cheese from the Harold

Cheese Factory.” Many years later Rollins, dressed as a mail box, was one of the original participants in the inaugural Spring Brook Santa Claus Parade, making it an annual tradition. Rollins will be celebrating her retirement with a community reception on Saturday, June 1, from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Spring Brook United Church. Customers, friends and neighbours are welcome but Rollins asks that guests bring only their best wishes. “Let their presence be their presents,” she says. Canada Post recently announced the outlet will be closing temporarily while a new postmaster is sought.

grams at our centre, there is only one staff member available to lead the activities. Our volunteers enable us to expand programming and increase participant numbers for the programs.” From April 2012 to March 2013, 34 volunteers donated 1,592 hours of their time volunteering for Gateway CHC. This reflects a 65 per cent increase in volunteer hours from the previous year. Volunteers assist at regularly scheduled programs such as Cradling Arms and Playgroup, Babies and Beyond, Living Well with Chronic Conditions, Income Tax Service, Tutoring Support, After School Program, Pole Walking, Kindergarten Readiness, Jazz Camp, and the monthly Community Kitchen sessions. Occasionally, volunteers help at special community events such as GCHC’s community flu clinics, held in the fall, and National Hand Hygiene Day in May. Gateway’s programs target population groups from infants to adults to promote a healthy lifestyle and to develop the necessary skills to achieve this goal. Volunteers are instrumental in supporting Gateway’s values and they serve as role models for the participants in the various programs. Gateway is fortunate to have eight high school students who volunteer in order to fulfill their community service hours required to graduate. Students volunteer at the youth-related programs such as Tutoring Support, After School, Jazz Camp, and Kindergarten Readiness. Carrie Salsbury, Program Director, said, “Our high school students are outstanding role models for the youth in our communities, leading by example and enthusiastically participating in the program activities. They truly embrace the Community Health Centre slogan, “Every One Matters.” Volunteering can become an intrinsic part of one’s life when individuals support the community they call home. Research has shown that volunteers themselves benefit by gaining a sense of personal achievement from giving back to their community. The volunteers also develop new skills, increase their employment opportunities, and meet others socially in the community. If you are interested in volunteering with Gateway Community Health Centre, please contact Darlyne Pennycook, volunteer coordinator at 613-478-1211, ext 239 or email <>.

EMC News - Stirling - Children were removed from the Henry Street Park last week when a man was seen masturbating not far away. Stirling Rawdon Police Chief Brian Foley reports that at approximately noon last Thursday a Caucasian male, age 50 to 60 and about 5 feet, 9 or 10 inches tall, was observed while watching children in the park. When the children were immediately removed by the complainant, he says, the suspect was seen driving north on Henry Street in a black Chevrolet or GMC pickup truck. He was described as wearing a dark hat, light coloured plaid short sleeve shirt and blue shorts. Anyone with further information is asked to contact the StirlingRawdon Police. On the same day, a black bear was on a deck and tried to enter a house in the Huff Road area. The bear wandered off without incident. Police also recently investigated seven bylaw complaints with charges issued or pending and officers also responded to fireworks complaints and barking dogs. A recent RIDE check resulted in zero impaired or liquor offences. Police are also continuing to investigate complaints of Internet and identity fraud and urge residents to keep personal information private.

Bike safety presentation meant new helmets for all EMC News - Marmora Thanks to a program sponsored by the Central Hastings OPP, and presented by Community Services Officer Alana Deubel, every Grade 3 student in Marmora, Madoc and Tweed received the Bike Safety presentation and a free helmet. As in past years, the attractive helmets were ordered through the Madoc Home Hardware. The safety tips and the Young Cyclist’s Guide available through Service Ontario include information relating to five important points. The first mentions the importance of making a thorough ABC check of the bike itself. A relates to air in the tires, B stands for brakes and bars, while C is a reminder to check the chain and pedals. Item number two stresses the importance of having a bike that fits the rider as one that is too big can’t be controlled properly and can be dangerous. Both feet should be flat on the ground when straddling the top tube of the bike. When sitting on the bike seat, the rider should be able to touch the ground with both feet and should reach the handlebars with a gentle

lean. Other tips mentioned the avoidance of stretching the back and shoulders and to ensure that the brakes can be reached and pulled with ease. The students were all reminded that cyclists under the age of 18 must wear a helmet. Information about the value of helmets stressed, “Always wear a helmet as it gives you a real chance of walking away from a fall or a collision. Your helmet should be the correct size and be properly adjusted. It should be worn on its own (no hats underneath). Check to make sure that your helmet fits right. The edge of the helmet should be two fingers above the eyebrows to protect the forehead; straps should meet in a V shape just below the ears; one finger should fit between the chin and the chin strap; and it should not shift around more than an inch in any direction.” The need for lights, white mounted on the front of the bike and a red reflector on the back, was also discussed, as were the importance of a bell, reflective tape on the front forks and red on the rear stays.

The last point discussed was one relating to the rules of the road and the fact that, “As a cyclist you must follow the same rules and laws as drivers do. Ride

in a straight line on the right hand side of the road, in the same direction as traffic. Do not weave in between parked cars. Ride beside parked cars as if all the car doors

were open. Use hand signals early when turning or stopping; this lets drivers know what you are going to do next. Always stop at stop signs and red lights, for stopped

school buses when their red lights are flashing, and for pedestrians at crosswalks. When crossing the street get off your bike, check all ways and cross at a crosswalk.”

Grade 3 students in Marmora, Madoc and Tweed are all sporting new bicycle helmets thanks to a bike safety presentation sponsored by the Central Hastings OPP Community Policing Advisory Committee. Those in Mr. Carmen’s and Mrs. Fleming’s classes at Earl Prentice Public School look particularly happy with their shiny new headgear Photo: Submitted

Malkin’s Culture of Corruption coins it Dear Editor, It’s the same old story in politics. It’s all about income re-distribution or just “follow the money” and you will soon discover the sleaze in our midst. It took the U.S. mainstream media five long years to discover what Barack Obama was all about even though author and investigative reporter Michelle Malkin exposed the truth about the Marxist U.S. President in a single volume—Culture of Corruption in 2009. You have to be a diehard leftist to believe that the Obama administration didn’t have their fingerprints all over the recent scandals that have erupted: the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi, the IRS targeting of Conservative groups by refusing tax exempt applica-

tions and the persecution of reporters working for various news media. Malkin is the author of three bestselling books and the recipient of a host of awards for her outstanding fact-finding reporting skills in politics. She has always been able to distinguish between the double-talk coming out of Washington and the murkier reality of the Obama era. As a keen observer of the political world, Malkin sets the standard. If more journalists had as much integrity as she does the newspaper world might have a lot more relevance. In her 376-page expose, Malkin said the corruption of the Obama presidency was easy to detect shortly after he was elected as he surrounded himself with a bevy of power brokers, ethically

challenged czars and bailout-bungling money men at the treasury. The Malkin microscope didn’t even count the complicity of the IRS at that time. It was a carbon copy of the old Chicago political sleaze machine, only on a bigger scale. Most of the Obama inner circle believe in a Marxist approach, which means being anti-American and anticapitalist. In the progressive circle, overt fraud and deceit are admired skills. Democrats were desperate after eight years of misery under George W. Bush. Even now they don’t believe they’ve done anything wrong. Progressives, they reason, have the right to run the country without rules. Rolly Ethier, Campbellford

The Memorial is as important as Glanmore

Dear Editor, “History is irreplaceable, and history is undeniable, and when we have an opportunity to celebrate it we should do so,” said MP Daryl Kramp. “More importantly, if we have an opportunity to preserve it, it’s critical.” This was taken from the May 23 edition of the EMC when he gave funding to Glanmore National Historic Site. She sits quietly in the heart of downtown Belleville, aging gracefully yet at the same time waiting to be rescued.

I can only assume that the rumours are true and yet another under-the-table deal is in the works! Is the Memorial Arena not one of the oldest arenas in the province if not the country? How fortunate that Belleville is blessed with such a gift! Why is it people are in such a hurry to dispose of the past when it is from these roots that we grew? Bellevillians should be proud of its historical significance in the world of hockey. Not only did the Belleville McFarlands put us on the map but look where we have grown to today in the

sport of hockey. Let us not turn our backs on the Memorial but come together to insist that council keeps her in her rightful place in the history books of Belleville. Daryl Kramp gets it; enough to give money to preserve Glanmore! Why is our own city council so blind as to turn their back on the Memorial? Perhaps an even better question is “Why are other Bellevillians not demanding that their council members wake up and do the right thing”? Yours in preservation, Nancy LeClair, Belleville

have been pretty substantial. So Steve here is the plan. Get your pal Pierre Poutine to slide some bogus receipts from Hooter’s Miami location into Duffy’s next expense claim for the same day he is claiming to be on Senate business. This should be simple compared to the expertise required to succeed in achieving success with your Robocalls without so much as one re-election being called, despite the fact the judge declared fraud was certainly committed. You can tell Canadians you were personally checking closely on Mr. Duffy after his last unfortunate episode and discovered this latest transgression. Hold the Hooter’s bills high on CBC for all Canadians to see. Voters will be outraged and you can get Peter

Mansbridge to accompany you over to the Senate, grab Duffy by the scruff of the neck, if you can find his scruff, and drag him out onto the street. Bingo! You now have an empty seat in your Senate and are immediately assured of a massive victory come the election of 2015. Trust me Steve, your backbenchers will put down those knives once Duffy moves back to Prince Edward Island to look for a job. As you can see from my 2012 focus on Mr. Duffy, my picking him out of 105 senators proves I can smell a rat from 223 kilometres away. This skill could be a very valuable asset to you as you go through Chiefs of Staff and need solid counsel during your hiring deliberations. At this time I shall leave you

with one more short paragraph from my last letter for fear it went astray in Canada Post, which would explain why I did not hear back from you. “Should a Senate seat become available I want you know you can count on me to raise my hand in favour of whatever it is you are in favour of at the time. Should you wish to spend billions of Canadian tax dollars to buy those American F35 fighter-bombers, I am with you. Then, if you want to use them to join Israel in the upcoming bombing of Iran back into the stone age … I’m your man.” Looking forward to hearing from you. Alan Coxwell, Stirling

Dear Editor, Sheila Gregoire’s thoughts on evil are very interesting (“Evil knows no social class,” May 24). The question of evil has been a vexing one for long ages, and F. Scott Peck’s book, The People of the Lie, is the best commentary on the subject I have found. As Sheila says, Peck locates the core of evil in lies and dishonesty. As soon as we begin to try to cover up an offence we have committed, we start to get sucked closer to real evil. Readers of Peck will appreciate the rigorous steps he takes as a doctor and psychotherapist to eliminate every other possible cause before concluding that evil is involved in a particular

client’s case. We live in a rather soul-less age it seems, and some folks have trouble taking the issues of good and evil seriously, and recognizing their existence in the real world. The “I Ching,” one of the great and ancient works of world wisdom literature, gives this advice: do not take up arms directly against evil, thus risking becoming contaminated by evil oneself. The way to confront evil is to “make energetic progress in the good.” This view is echoed in Jesus’ teaching that we should pray for our enemies. Another critical Christian teaching on evil, shared by Islam and Judaism, is that evil is never something entirely out-

side us. Thus, in Islam, we have the primary meaning of the word “Jihad”—a struggle against evil within the individual person. Evil is often attractive and often invisible, but always connected to lies and dishonesty. It was said of an American vice-president by Norman Mailer that he had committed so many misdeeds that he would commit any number more to avoid having to face the truth. This captures the dynamic of evil nicely. Those who have chosen to live in darkness are very afraid of the light. As the old saying goes, the Devil’s greatest accomplishment is that no one any longer believes in him. Brett Mann, Tweed

Evil in a soul-less age

Please show some more courage, Mr. Kramp




pointed five new Senators, including the two seats which were vacant in Ontario where I reside, and despite the fact these new appointees can sit in the Senate until they are 75 years old, odds are that one of Ontario’s 24 seat warmers will drop dead before too long. At the outset let me assure you the base salary of $132,300 per annum is totally acceptable, especially considering the other perks of office which are certain to flow my way. As an educated economist you will easily comprehend the savings attributable to the fact that the cost to feed me in your parliamentary cafeteria will come nowhere close to what it must cost to keep Senator Mike Duffy gastronomically satisfied.” Unfortunately the Duffster was not just chowing down more than his share in the parliamentary cafeteria during lunch break. Since he appears to be rather impoverished, thus necessitating your Chief of Staff Nigel Wright to slide him $90,000 from his chump change account, one must presume Senator Duffy’s after-hours chicken wings and beer bills must

to start. Instead you want to turn it over to developers for them to make a profit and destroy one of our precious few remaining historical buildings in the process; what a pitiful lack of vision. For those who don’t know, Bobby Crawford has a solid business proposal to utilize the Memorial Arena, one that would increase foot traffic and no doubt bring economic benefits to the downtown core. Having turned him down and now hearing that council has listed the Memorial as surplus real estate (along with the adjoining property),

That does not mean she should be cast aside. We still need her! Her ice surface is still needed whether it is for recreational or organized sports. Anyone involved in hockey knows how hard it is to secure ice time based on the lack of it. More important she has secured a place in the history books of Belleville. How can we take that away? We should be proud of her and do what we can to show her off so she may continue to generate income for the downtown businesses. Designating it as a National Historic Site is a good place

Dear Editor, I read Chris Faiers’ letter (May 23, 2013) congratulating Mr. Kramp on his “backbone” in regards to “Mr. Harper’s ongoing smear campaigns,” and I have to say, “Yes, well done, Mr. K, but how about the Duffy debacle? You are quoted in the Belleville Intelligencer as having the PM’s back, or words to that effect. What a disappointment after I sent you

the following email: “I would be very impressed if you were to stand up and be counted as a member of the Conservative Party of Canada, and especially as my MP, who refuses to just look on in wonder and silence at the morass your party is in regarding the above. “I believe you are a person of conscience who wants to do the best for his constituents, and

I expect you would like to sleep at nights. It is my hope you will display courage and refuse to continue to be part of the ongoing insult that the CPC majority has become. “I look forward to seeing your decision in action.” I’d say “For Shame” except that appears to be an eccentric notion so easily misunderstood.

An older and wiser Nawaz Sharif?

EMC Editorial - The first time Nawaz Sharif became prime minister of Pakistan was almost a quarter-century ago. His second term was ended fourteen years ago by a miliGwynne Dyer tary coup that drove him into exile. Now he’s back, a good deal older, but is he any wiser? Pakistanis seem to think so—or at least Punjabis do. Almost all of the seats won by his Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Party in last Saturday’s election were in the province of Punjab, which has more people than all of Pakistan’s other provinces combined. That weakens the legitimacy of his victory, but with the support of some candidates who won as independents he will have no trouble in forming a majority government. The question is: what will that government do? It’s a good question, because Pakistan is a nuclear-armed country of 160 million people that has borders with India, Afghanistan and Iran. It is also, in the view of some observers, fairly close to being a “failed state.” Everybody knows that Nawaz Sharif is conservative, pro-business, and devout— during his second term, he tried to pass a constitutional amendment that would have enabled him to enforce Sharia law—but he hasn’t been tremendously forthcoming

about his actual plans for his third term. And some of the things he did say have caused concern in various quarters. The thing that most worries the United States is his declaration that Pakistan should end its involvement in the U.S.led “war on terror.” The army is unhappy about his proposal that the government should negotiate with the Pakistani Taliban (who conducted a campaign of bombings, assassinations and kidnappings against the “secular” political parties in the recent election) rather than just fighting them. And everybody is wondering what Nawaz will do about the economy. The country’s balance of payments is in ruins, and it cannot meet its foreign debt obligations without negotiating new loans from the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund. Those loans would come with onerous conditions about balancing the budget and fixing the tax system, and they wouldn’t come at all without American support. Pakistan is technically a middle-income country, but during the outgoing government’s five years in office power shortages grew so acute that most regions are facing power outages for up to 12 hours a day. Millions of vehicles fuelled by natural gas have been immobilised by gas shortages. The country desperately needs foreign investment, but the plague of Islamist terrorism frightens investors away. Finally, the United States will be withdrawing its troops from Afghanistan next year, and Nawaz Sharif will have to decide what he wants to do about the Taliban in that country (who still have the tacit support of Pakistan’s army). The key to all these puzzles, oddly enough, may lie in

the incoming prime minister’s determination to improve relations with India. In each of his previous terms, he tried very hard to make peace with India, but was thwarted both times by the Pakistani army. The current military chief of staff, General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani, is due to retire at the end of this year (after a threeyear extension in office), and this will give Nawaz a chance to replace him with someone less committed to perpetual confrontation with India. Then many things would become possible. An end to the military confrontation would open the door to large-scale Indian investment in Pakistan (including pipelines bringing oil and gas from Iran and central Asia). It would let Pakistan cut the military budget down to size. And it would end the army’s tacit support for the Taliban in Afghanistan, which is all about ensuring that Pakistan has a friendly government in Kabul to give it “strategic depth” in its long cold war with India. The Taliban will inevitably be part of any post-occupation government in Afghanistan, but without Pakistani support they will have to strike a deal with other forces rather than just taking over. That outcome would greatly mollify Washington and make it easier for Islamabad to get new loans from the World Bank and the IMF. It would also make it easier for the government to negotiate some kind of domestic peace settlement with the Pakistani Taliban. Then, maybe, Nawaz could finally get the Pakistani economy back on track. It’s a long string of ifs, but nobody else on the Pakistani political scene seems to have a better plan.

the money! The president and CEO makes $1,720,000; Laura Formusa, (President and chief executive officer), makes $1,036,740; the Senior V/P of People, Culture and Chief Ethics Officer makes $467,208; a Senior Training Officer makes $364,571; and the Deputy Chief Nuclear Operating Strategic Initiative guy makes $547,088. How about an Executive V/P Nuclear Projects at $843,095. Oh man, now I understand: they REALLY REALLY need the money! Did you know that an “Authorized Nuclear Operator” can make up to $333,540? I would think that an UNauthorized Nuclear Operator, like Homer Simpson for instance, might not even make the Sunshine List. So Myles, my son, what’s it like to make $40,000 each and every month? Oh wait, there’s hefty income tax involved. So listen big guy, what’s a fella do with $25,000 plunked into his bank account each and every month until he takes his

defined benefit pension plan and hikes ’er into the clouds of blissful retirement? I asked my wife what we would do with $25 grand and she said that first of all, the tops and bottoms of our pyjamas would finally match! This isn’t the end you know. When an organization is this desperate for money, when a person whose title is “Vice President Total Rewards” makes $261,912, when a Senior Vice President makes $544,589, when a control room shift supervisor makes $292,900, whoo man ’der gotta be some serious coin raised! So be prepared for the next epistle from Mr. D’Arcey. Right around the corner is PREPAID HYDRO. You know, we’ll start her gently ’eh. Let you pay the future six months hydro up front in six easy payments. You’ll never miss ’er once she’s gone—and, after all, Myles may need new jammies. Wyley Canuck, aka Ken Leavens, Stirling

EMC Editorial - It’s been quite a week for Prime Minister Stephen Harper. There he was in New York on Thursday scolding the world for its dwindling support of Israel, a peculiar stance to take in a week where that country decided that four settler outposts in the West Bank ordered demolished, would be granted settlement status. UN resolutions be damned; peace negotiations be damned; Netanyahu’s coalition government needs the settler vote to survive. Hook up the hydro and bring in the IDF. “There’s nothing more shortsighted in Western capitals in our time than the softening of support we’ve seen for Israel around the globe,” Harper was quoted in the Times of Israel, calling the country “the one stable, democratic ally in this part of the world.” Bibi Netanyahu feels the love. After all, he did recently spend $127,000 of Israeli taxpayers’ money to outfit a jet with a sleeping chamber for a five-hour flight to Britain for Margaret Thatcher’s funeral. (Total flight cost was $427,000.) His excuse? He had to be fresh when he met with the PM of Great Britain and our Prime Minister Harper. Meanwhile Israel’s almost 90-yearold president Shimon Perez recently took a flight paid for by taxpayers, an 11-hour flight to South Korea sitting in business class. No $427,000 private flights for Shimon, thank you very much. Israel’s recent violations of Lebanese airspace to bomb targets in Syria may have also ruffled a few feathers around the globe. Some might call this bombardment aiding the Syrian rebels considering government armaments were targeted. Israel says it’s keeping arms away from Hezbollah. Whatever the reason, Israel has once again attacked a sovereign country and the west was strangely silent. The 48 soldiers killed in the attack were barely mentioned in news reports. Netanyahu has said they’ll do it again whenever they think it’s necessary and if Syria responds to this act of war, Israel will really get down to business and kick the Assad regime to the curb. Israel has the right to defend its borders, other nations do not, it seems. Maybe that’s why some governments, much to Harper’s chagrin, aren’t quite so enamoured with State of Israel these days. They really don’t want to be drawn into yet another unnecessary war. But the home front is where Harper really shines. After his proclamation on Thursday, the Prime Minister didn’t really have much to say about the alleged

An interpretation of Hydro One’s new billing Dear Editor, Did you get your letter telling you about “important changes to your Hydro One Account?” Did you read it? Did you understand that Ontario Hydro REALLY REALLY needs the money? They never once said: “You rotten buggers have been taking advantage of us,” instead they said, “We will let you pay off the old 18 day delay in billing you for Hydro, [which we never thought of before but now are delighted to bill], over the next six months easy payment plan.” The lad who sent you the letter, Mr. Myles D’Arcey, made $484,356.78 in 2012. He needs the money. So do the other 10,800 folks at Hydro who made over $100,000 in 2012. I counted them all, but I might be out by three or four because my eyes were wet with tears of envy or anger, whichever comes first. A conservative average of say $135,000 times 10,800 of the sunshine-enhanced hydro folk translates to one billion, four hundred and fifty-eight million smackeroos. That’s why they need

double dipper and party fund raiser Mike Duffy quitting the Conservative caucus to sit as an independent. When Friday rolled around, another hand-picked Harper senate appointee, Pamela Wallin, also announced that she too was quitting the Conservative caucus while her expenses were being audited. Back in February, Harper had personally vouched for Wallin’s expenses saying they were in line with other politicians. And then on Sunday morning, Harper’s right hand man, Chief of Staff Nigel Wright, announced his resignation as well. Mr. Wright (a Bay Street millionaire) had seen fit to write a personal cheque for 90 grand to pay back Mr. Duffy’s over and above expenses but the Prime Minister didn’t know of course. This in itself might cause one to wonder why Harper wouldn’t know what his chief of staff was doing. One would also wonder why Mike Duffy stopped co-operating with investigators after he paid off his expenses. Did he think he was home free for some reason? Did he think other Conservative senators had his back? If they did they quickly changed their minds and proceeded to duck and cover. Prime Minister Harper hasn’t really said boo about this whole sordid affair other than to back his political appointees. One would hope a politician who promised honest and transparent government would at least give an explanation for the goings on in our nation’s capital. Wasn’t senate reform on Harper’s “to do list” way back when. The sad fact of the matter is both Wallin and Duffy are still being paid to sit in the Senate and we’re footing the bill. Under the same circumstances, do you think your employer would even allow you to walk through the door? The case may be made that the Americans have it right in limiting a president (read prime minister) to two terms in office. Corruption always seems to rise to the top when prime ministers achieve that third mandate be they Liberal or Conservative. And from all appearances, a senate seat seems to be regarded not as giving provincial representation and sober second thought but as a way to have a hell of a good time on the taxpayers’ dime. Too bad this is all going down two years before the next election. Voters have short memories at times. Hopefully they realize corruption isn’t limited to a single party. But these recent revelations do make those Trudeau attack ads sound really silly, don’t they.

Combining reading and physical activity By Judy Backus

EMC News - Marmora - For the second consecutive year, students and staff at Earl Prentice Public School participated in what is termed a Rock ’n’ Read A Thon, comprised of a series of activities designed to promote reading and being physically active. Excitement was palpable ahead of the 11:45 start with all students divided into multi-age teams and ready to go.

Every 13 minutes, a bell sounded to indicate it was time to move to the next station. These totalled seven and included reading activities, W11 fitness, teachers reading aloud with verve, a gymnastics circuit, drama and acting opportunities, and a dance related stop. Local author and supply teacher Alicja Merifield was on hand to talk about her writing and to share the story of her book GoldDust - Dragon

of Merak, a fantasy telling of desert adventures. The event, which ended with refreshments supplied by the school council, was a pledged one, with the proceeds used to support both class trips and technology within the classrooms. The top three fund raisers in each

class, will be rewarded with a book, and the student bringing in the most pledges will receive what is termed a healthy living prize, which last year, was a soccer ball. The class bringing in the most pledges will enjoy a free pizza lunch

O’Hara Mill Homestead opens for the season By Diane Sherman

EMC News - Madoc - The O’Hara Mill Homestead and Conservation Area, in Madoc Township, officially opened for the 2013 season May 26. Joyce Grayson greets visitors at the visitor’s centre overlooking the restored pioneer settlement. She found slightly more visitors from “away” than locally. Her son, Chris Grayson, the blacksmith demonstrating traditional skills at the homestead, said he found people “had some good questions” and noted there was a mix of local residents and travellers. “One gentleman was from China and had taken special measures to come for the opening. I thought that was special.” Mrs. Grayson said there were some people from York, England, and Germany. Volunteers from throughout Hastings County have worked diligently, with their individual talents of craftsmanship and knowledge to reconstruct the historic homestead. There are 11 period buildings, and nine kilometres of hiking trails along with high-tech geocaching sites for those who like to treasure hunt. They now have an updated and maintained web site <> through which one can see

the evolution of rebuilding the 1800s style settlement. On display this year is the restored, vintage, rock and stump picker. A monolithic image set upon a knoll between the blacksmith and harness shops. It was a project undertaken by volunteers with assistance from Gerrard Forestell and his Timber Mart truck. The next step, said active member Dave Little, is to build a shed for it and a shingle mill. Currently, Little is in the process of re-shingling the blacksmith shop with natural, old-style cedar shingles; it’s a laborious job to lay them in proper form. The reconstructed dam at the sawmill and the covered bridge over top create a scenic image for tourists, which many, with camera in hand, recorded. A popular draw are the traditional gardens planted and maintained by the gardening committee, who willingly offer cuttings and starter plants for folks to take home. Volunteers were dressed in period costume for the opening; they do this for the preCanada Day celebration June 23, and Heritage Day July 28, the annual corn boil, August 15, and Christmas at The Mill December 6, 7 and 8. The 85-acre parcel of land is part of Quinte Conserva-

tion, but it is members of the O’Hara Volunteer Association who have taken on the restoration of buildings, machinery and managing the historic location. As a registered charitable organization, volunteers continue to fund raise to manage the area. There is no charge to enjoy the area, though dona-

tion boxes are set about for supporters to contribute. The annual dinner and auction to benefit O’Hara Mill is June 8. Tickets are sold in advance and are usually sold out. Information can be found by phoning their answering service at 613-474 2084 or going to the web site posted above.

March 2011, volunteers took the initiative to restore a giant stump and stone puller which had been stored in the lean-to sheds at O’Hara Mill Homestead for years. In the left front of this picture are Dave Little, who worked on the project, and Barb Brooks, of the gardening committee, both in vintage costume.

Volunteer members Bev Holmes and Nancy Genereaux, serve Frankford resident, Carol Martin-Desaulniers with some take home plants.

Gateway’s exceptional volunteers recognized with the Five-Year Service Award at the ceremony. Gina Kim was presented with the Youth Volunteer Award in recognition of her two years of volunteering at Gateway CHC. Gina has assisted at several youth programs: Tutoring Support, After School and Kindergarten Readiness. She easily develops a rapport with the youth attending these programs. She is a positive role model for the students, leading by example and enthusiastically participating in the various program activities. Her leadership skills are evident as she is equally confident helping a four-year-old print his name or instructing older students on safe food preparation techniques. It appears volunteering runs in the Kim family as shortly after Gina started volunteering, her younger sister Kate decided that she would like to become a volunteer at the centre. Kate is also a key volunteer at the youth programs

offered by the centre. Her encouraging manner had the three- and four-yearolds in the Kindergarten Readiness Program who initially refused to participate in an activity, wanting to be the first ones to try new things! Kate assisted at the Tutoring Support Program where her

encouraging manner helped the students attending the program develop a feeling of “I can do this!” Kate was also presented with the Youth Volunteer Award at the ceremony. Lyn Linton, Executive Director at Gateway CHC said, “Our volunteers

This free event, organized by Lower Trent Conservation, will run from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m. at Seymour Conservation Area. Families can try their luck at the quarry, which has been stocked with 500 rainbow trout provided by the Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR), Peter-

borough District. The day will include giveaways for the kids, as well as great draw prizes; draw will take place at 11 a.m. Anglers are asked to bring their own fishing gear and applicable fishing licence. A supply of worms will be available. The event is sponsored by Fishing Forever, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to funding worthwhile fishing, conservation and education projects. It is also supported by the Police

Association of Ontario, Canadian Tire, Northumberland OPP, the Ministry of Natural Resources, and Bill’s Johns Portable Toilet Rentals, Trenton. According to Bob Izumi, chair of Fishing Forever, there is nothing that puts a smile on a kid’s face faster than catching a fish. “That’s why I love to create opportunities for children and families to go fishing,” states Izumi. “Fishing is one of the very best ways for parents Please see “Cops” on page 11

Legion President Pat Thomas deserves a medal and gets one EMC News - Tweed - A farewell party of sorts (since she is not really going anywhere) was held for Pat Thomas at Tweed Legion Branch 428 after she stepped down from being president of the Legion for ten years. A large number of friends attended the surprise party for Pat but the biggest surprise was when she was presented with the Meritorious Service Medal by Deputy District Commander Buck Buchannan. Those who have watched Pat serve the Legion and community and keep peace within its ranks know she is very deserving of such an award. “I submitted an application for Pat to be awarded the medal,” said Buck. “This is the highest award you give or receive in the Legion. There are very few people who get this medal and there is strict curriculum for the medal. Pat met all the standards we investigated with the mayor, municipal council and the Legion people from the past; we learned about all the good works she has done and so things worked out well. This party was planned without anyone’s knowledge of the award and this party seemed like the perfect opportunity to present the award.” “I have only been at this branch since 2005 after transferring from Oshawa,” said Jim Carmichael. “This is most definitely one of the best run branches not only in the zone, but in Ontario. I have seen a lot of politics in different Legion branches and here the branch works to serve the members and is a very comfortable place to be.” Asked about Pat’s service, longtime Legion member Barry Flanagan said, “Where do you start? She has been a tireless worker! She has always put the legion ahead of everything except her family. She will be missed as a leader.” Jack Frost is the Ontario Honorary Grand President and he said he has known Pat for 25 years. “This party is so well deserved for Pat. She has worked so hard for the Legion over the years for the health and welfare of the veterans. I don’t think there is anyone I know who has done more for the Legion than her.” Mayor Jo-Anne Albert showed up after attending the school reunion in Tweed and said, “It is my pleasure to be here and Pat is the most deserving person of the Meritorious Medal. I have been reeve for seven years and didn’t know Pat well when I started, but I truly feel she has been here to support the municipality in every endeavour we have talked about and has always had a strong group of vol-

Legion; Pat amazed me be- gion outfit to meet the troops, The ‘greet the troops’ could cause she would have to leave and then change back to her nursing clothes to go back to work. What dedication that is and true volunteerism. I treasure the time I have gotten to know her and her time spent as president of this Legion.” Heather Atkins is the new Tweed Legion president and said she is very excited taking over but also said, “I have some big shoes to fill with Pat leaving. My intention is really to carry on the good work she started.

president in Tamworth for eight years and I find this branch to be more friendly and outgoing; it has the impact of what a Legion should be which is look after the community and give back to the veterans. Pat has been focused on youth and I will continue that focus.” “I have really good

memories over the ten years as president,” said Pat, “I have no regrets; this is a fabulous branch, the members are terrific and I love them all! They have always been there for me and so many people have always been just a phone call away. I look forward to continuing to serve the branch in any way I can.”

Discover and enjoy the beauty of local gardens EMC Lifestyles - Tweed - On Saturday, July 6, from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m., eight spectacular private gardens and three community gardens will be part of the Friends of the Tweed Library Garden Tour. Terry daSilva, convenor of the Garden Tour says, “Gardening has become very popular over the years. My husband and I enjoy going on garden tours. We have learned numerous tips from other

gardeners when we walk through their gardens. The Friends thought the idea of a garden tour would be a wonderful way to raise money for the library and give people a chance to explore the many beautiful gardens in Tweed.” The tour has rural gardens on several acres, small town gardens, vegetable gardens with fruit trees and berry patches, organic gardens, extensive rock gardens accented with tropical plants from

the Caribbean and gardens with water features, even a cascading waterfall. According to Terry, “Each garden has something unique and the gardens for the tour were selected to offer the public a chance to experience this uniqueness.” The property owners will be present during the tour to talk about their garden and answer any gardening questions the public may have. There will be entertainment in the private gardens … painters, musicians, author readings, flower arranging demos and a Master Gardener

to answer general gardening questions. The Tweed and Area Arts Council will have its hand-painted watering cans on display in one of the private gardens. The 20 watering cans have been designed and painted by local artists as part of a silent auction for the Arts Council. The proceeds from the tour will be used to purchase a sound system for the meeting room at the library, audio books and juvenile non-fiction materials. The tour will run rain or shine! Passports (tickets) for the Garden

Tour can be purchased at the Food Company, Tweed News and at the library. Passports can also be ordered by emailing <pgweber419@yahoo. ca>. The cost is $20 each or two for $30 until June 15. The passport contains a description of each garden and includes a map with directions. You may start the tour wherever you like and visit as many or all the gardens. Watch for the colourful balloons at each garden! For more info about the Garden Tour, please contact Terry daSilva at 613-478-1791.

EMC News - Tweed - “The Gateway Community Health Centre Youth Jazz Ensemble is a very good example of community involvement and many of our young kids are learning an instrument for the first time. The Tweed & Area Arts Council [TAAC] are very pleased to be able to make a donation of $2,000 and contribute to what is a very unique opportunity for Tweed and area youth from Grades Five to Eight to participate in the arts,” said Wayne Kay of the TAAC. Wayne continued, “The Youth Jazz Ensemble is an excellent example of youth interest, involvement, participation, learning and having fun in the arts; the donation to the GCHC Youth Jazz Ensemble will be used for professional instruction.” Blair Yarrington has been the musical director of the Jazz Ensemble for the last two years and said, “I teach high school in Belleville so I don’t get a chance to work with students of this age until I come to Tweed; it is a unique opportu-

nity. Many of these students start from scratch with no musical experience and it is rewarding to see how far they come is such a short amount of time.” Bonnie Marintette helps organize the youth program for the TAAC and said that the Tweed Summer Youth Theatre will have final shows at Marble Arts Centre on July 18 and August 15. “We have a corporate and community challenge golf tournament coming up and we are hoping that businesses are going to challenge each other and get out there with a team on June 9 at Poplars Golf Course near Tweed. We have had 20 watering cans painted by a number of local artists that will be auctioned off; they will be on display at the golf tournament and it will be the first time all 20 will be on display at the same time. Bids have already begun on those. The cans will be all over town throughout the summer. We also have Art in the Park August 3 and we are still looking for more artists and if anyone is interested they can contact Maril Swan at 613-478-5003.”

Students add a little colour to downtown eastern realty inc. brokerage

By Richard Turtle


EMC News - Madoc - The downtown core has a new spring look thanks to students at Centre Hastings Secondary School. Students from the school’s renovation and restoration program were busy placing 32 planters they built, filled with spring blossoms started by students involved in the CHSS greenhouse program. Deputy-reeve Tom Simp-

ED BURLEIGH Sales Rep. • 705-653-2080 • 1-800-567-4546

son explains that Madoc has been entered in the non-competitive class for this year’s Communities in Bloom and the students have got things off to beautiful start. But the downtown beautification program has become a spring tradition, now in its sixth year, and Simpson is a strong supporter. Both the renovation program, offered for senior students, and the greenhouse

program, offered to practical learning students, provide a perfect learning environment, he says, and offer the experience of putting that learning to practical use in the community. CHSS Head of Special Education Tracy Chapman says the various tasks and rewards that come with operating any greenhouse are shared by a dozen students at CHSS, many of whom excel and are well aware of the results that come from their attention to detail. “It offers all sorts of experiences [unavailable in the classroom],” she says of the

now ten-year-old program, “and they always get a lot out of it.” Students also hold plant sales, to help cover some of the costs for required seeds and supplies, and with regular visits from master gardener Steve Airhart, Chapman says, there are always valuable gardening lessons to be learned. And the student projects are now lining the Madoc sidewalks as evidence that spring has indeed arrived and to encourage others to add a little colour to the neighbourhood.

Kids’ Club marks another season says the program, hosted weekly at the Stirling Junior School gym, had a total of 50 participants registered with the vast majority attending. Activities, she says, include games, songs and Bible stories with the club meeting throughout the school year. Pastor Darren Snarr says the club’s culminating social event, which offered barbequed hot dogs and other refreshments as well as games and contests, provides an opportunity for an informal gathering and celebration of the commu-

nity. The church is also planning several other activities including the upcoming show by Up Standing comedian Timmy Boyle on June 9 and the late summer Vacation Bible School at the end of August.

Dracup adds registration for the Bible School session, which runs from 9 a.m. until noon from August 26 to 30, is open to children from JK to Grade 5 and parents can register their children on July 13 or August 17 at Stirling Foodland.

Young’s Creek cleanup to begin next year and insecticides, to the resulting presentday ongoing massive cleanup project. Councillor Linda Bracken, who last November wrote to the selection committee in support of the nomination, said in her letter, “Heather has been an inspiration to our heritage committee. The excitement of the documentary means a great deal to our community as many of us have family members who worked at the Deloro Mine Site for many years. The stories cannot be forgotten nor can the final cleanup that has taken place. The impact of both have been documented singlehandedly by Heather Hawthorne, a dedicated public servant, and her determination and compassion that is enshrined in The Price of Gold documentary, will ensure all Ontarians will know about the past and the present of the Deloro Mine Site.” Bracken went on to comment in her letter that Hawthorne had told the story about the people, their dreams and their hardships, stressing, “The value of this documentary cannot be measured in dollars. The history she has preserved is out-

standing not only for the province and our municipality, but for family members who are left to remember the heritage of our ancestors.” Copies of The Price of Gold are now available for loan at the libraries in Marmora, Madoc and Stirling, and for viewing at the Marmora Historical Foundation. The meeting continued with an overview of the intensive and ongoing cleanup at the 202-hectare site, with particular attention paid to the Young’s Creek area through a slide presentation made by MOE engineer Nancy Dick who spoke of the on-site 47 hectares down from the tailings area and the 19-hectare off site area south of Highway #7. Contaminants of concern include arsenic, cobalt, copper, nickel, and, in some on site areas, low level radioactive tailings. The volume of waste to be dealt with includes 80,000 cubic metres on site and 30,000 off site. The strategy for dealing with the on-site waste involves

containing all the sediment in a cell, whereas in the off-site section there are localized pockets of sediment which will be addressed. The contaminated sediment will be put on site into a containment cell comprised of a series of tubes made of engineered fabric. The tubes, once filled with the waste, will be piled on top of a layer of clay and an engineered liner in a pyramid fashion with the water that seeps out to be treated then returned to the creek leaving behind the solids contained in the tubes. It was pointed out that the weight of the tubes on the top forces additional liquid from those on the bottom. Dick told the group that experiments using the tubes indicated that the fabric does a good job of binding with the sediment. Once the ten-metre-high pyramid is completed, it will be surrounded by a berm then covered with an engineered cap topped with earth planted with grass. It is hoped the construction phase of this portion of the cleanup will be under way early in 2014.

EMC News - Marmora - Deloro Hall was once again the location for the Public Liaison Committee’s meeting relating to the Deloro Mine Site Cleanup Project, the one held on May 15 being meeting #42. Deloro Team Leader Nancy Elliott, who chaired the meeting which was attended by local representatives and those from the Ministry of the Environment, announced early in the proceedings that Heather Hawthorne, an MOE Communications Advisor, had been named as the recipient of the prestigious Amethyst Award which was created in 1992 to “recognize excellence in the Ontario Public Service.” For many years, dating back as far as 1999 when she began working on the project, to 2006 when she completed the editing, the documentary, “The Price of Gold” has been a focus for Hawthorne who was the writer, director and producer of the powerful story of Deloro. The work details the history of Deloro from the discovery of gold in 1866 through refining endeavours and the production of stellite

Spring plans mean busy time for garden centres By Richard Turtle

EMC Business - Stirling - Every year about this time Adam Cooney sees a spike in business. “This is always our busiest time,” said the owner of Sticks and Stones garden centre at the north end of Stirling in the middle of the Victoria Day Weekend. And, he says, while it wasn’t very long ago it has been like that since the beginning. In fact, when Cooney first opened his business four years ago, there was no time for an announcement, an official ceremony or even a ribbon cutting. Instead, he says, it was straight down to business. When spring brings the gardeners out, with new plans and the prospect of another season, Cooney sees a lot of familiar faces. While opening a lawn and garden business was new to him, and admittedly a big step, the opportunity arose while working in the field. “I was doing landscaping and excavation at the time and people were always asking me for supplies,” he explains. It seemed a natural progression to give them exactly what they asked for, he says. Then he quietly opened the doors, offering mulch and gravel, lawn and garden tool rentals and other landscaping

items from fence posts to decorative rocks. For a time, his business also housed a bottle return, but the gardening and yard work got in the way. So when he’s not providing the tools or supplies for a job whether big or small, Cooney is offering advice, loading or delivering orders of sand, making repairs or sourcing more material. And this year, while things are much the same on the business end, there have also been some big changes. Sticks and Stones reopened at a new location, just across the road, and the move came at an opportune time. “I’ve been wanting to fix up this property for a while,” Cooney says of the new site he owns that neighbours his home, “and this just gave me a reason to get going.” The expansion of a welding and fabricating business across the road next to Sticks and Stones necessitated another building, Cooney says, and the move proved advantageous to both. “It’s perfect,” he says, noting he doesn’t even have to cross the road to get home from work. Through the early gardening season Sticks and Stones also features plants, shrubs and other products from Stonepath Greenhouses.


Adam Cooney has been operating Sticks and Stones in Stirling since 2010 and recently reopened at a new North Street location.

Camp songs at Caressant Care

EMC News - Marmora - On May 14, the Marmora Girl Guides made an evening visit to Caressant Care Retirement Home where they entertained the residents by singing a selection of camp songs, both old favourites and some newer ones. The repertoire included Land of the Silver Birch, When Molly was a Spark, Johnny Appleseed, Brownie Smile, Herman the Worm, Pink Pajamas and many more. They also played a game or two. To support this year’s Thinking Day theme, the girls also created cards to be given to the residents on their birthdays. Afterward, the girls were given time to enjoy refreshments with the residents before heading home. As leader Barb Davies later said, “We had fun and will try to do it again.” Residents at Caressant Care enjoyed an evening of music on May 14 when Marmora Guides arrived to sing a selection of camp songs.

Learn more about children’s programs

EMC News - Stirling - The Stirling Co-operative Day Nursery will be holding an open house next weekend to provide program information as well as the opportunity to register for the fall. Early Childhood Educator Bev Higgins says the registered charity relies heavily on fund raising and volunteer input to operate and keep fees low. In most cases, she says, parents are required to volunteer one day per month in various capacities with sessions running from 9 a.m. until noon Monday through Thursday. The playbased program focuses on socialization as well as learning, Higgins says, for children from two to five years old. “We just want to get the word out that we’re here,” says Higgins of their location in the basement of St. Paul’s United Church, adding the program usually reaches full registration. “There are a few spaces for non-duty parents,” she notes, “but they are very limited and the fees are substantially higher.” The upcoming open house, Saturday, June 8, from 9 a.m. until noon, will provide full details on services provided as well as program outlines, participant expectations and hours of operation, Higgins says. Not far away, at the Stirling Primary School, officials at Camp Best Start are preparing for their own summer programs that are scheduled to run from July 2 to August 23. Supervisor Hazel Vogt says the programs are offered for children age four to ten with flexible fees according to hours. Full information is available by stopping at the school’s southwest entrance throughout the week during business hours.

This summer’s session will focus on a different geographical region each week and participants can anticipate a virtual trip around the world with stops in Australia, Africa, Greece and China on the itinerary. Programs are open to Cubs (age three to five) and Grizzlies (age six to ten) and run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily. Extended days (until 5:30 p.m.) can also be arranged at an increased cost.

Bev Higgins (right) joins the lineup at the lemonade stand at the Stirling Co-operative Day Nursery at St. Paul’s United Church. The nursery is holding an open house on June 8 from 9 a.m. until noon. Eagerly awaiting the summer are Best Start registrants Rayne Bye, Landyn Suttle, Zaphyn Monk and Jackson Quinlan. Full information on summer programs is available at the Stirling Primary School.

Photo: Steve Jessel

she says, “whose gig it was to skewer the pretenses of classical music,” earned a significant following, although many today are unfamiliar with her reputation or her talent. But since that first introduction, and the opportunity to provide input during the show’s development, Oucharek says she is committed to renewing interest in the late star of the stage. And she admits to being on “a bit of a mission,” to spread the word about Anna Russell. “There was nobody like her,” she says.

Oucharek provided a sneak preview for audience members attending the weekend performance of the Quinte Symphony leading up to the Stirling opening, and says she is very much looking forward to the June 12 to 15 dates, with both matinee and evening shows at the SFT. Tickets are $25 each and available at the theatre box office or by calling 613395-2100. Show times are June 12, 2 p.m., June 13, 2 p.m., June 14, 2 and 8 p.m. and June 15, 8 p.m.

Quinte West News


EMC Entertainment - Stirling - The story behind Anna Russell was new to Denise Oucharek when she first heard it as a music student at Queen’s University, but she admits she was quickly intrigued. “I fell absolutely in love with everything about her,” says the Toronto-based singer and actor who is preparing for an upcoming five-show run of Toad: The Anna Russell Story at the Stirling Festival Theatre. Born and raised in England, Russell moved to Canada and went on to perform around the world through the 1950s and 1960s, making music and much fun of it. The childhood nickname, Toad, stayed with her for many years after. She died in 2006. But her story is a fascinating one, Oucharek says, and she learned of it when writer Marc Richard was researching and preparing the script. A mix of classical music and comedy, she says, the show is a fitting tribute to a Canadian entertaining icon who has been overlooked by many. “There was just so much about her,” she says, “and her material really stands the test.” It also took the seemingly inaccessible and made it accessible. Classical music doesn’t have to be serious business, says SFT Media Co-ordinator Joanne Hartman, noting the onewoman show offers a Victor Borge-like take on classical music and performance and should prove a real hit for lovers of both the piano and comedy.

Track and field day provided fun for all By Judy Backus

EMC Sports - Marmora - An early morning staff meeting resulted in a decision to go ahead with the outdoor activities related to Sacred Heart School’s annual track and field day held on May 21. The move proved to be a good one, as all the events were completed prior to the rain shower which began at 12:30. The only event to take place indoors was the high jump which was set up in the gym.

Outdoors, at various locations around the property, the students from Grades 1 through 8, competed in such things as the standing long jump, sprints, the running long jump, distance races, a ball throw and shot-put. Every 20 minutes, the groups moved from one station to another, with the top five Grade 4 to 8 competitors in each category destined to compete at the board level during a meet on June 7 at Mary-Anne Sills Park in Belleville.

Fifty Shades of Lilac the theme of annual Lilac Festival

By Sue Dickens

EMC News - Warkworth - The ubiquitous lilac was the centrepiece of Warkworth’s Lilac Festival celebration. From the Millennium Trail to the windows of downtown businesses to the throng of people who attend the event last weekend, the colours of lilacs were everywhere. “This is the third annual Lilac Festival and they say three times is a charm and we’ve definitely been blessed with the best showing of lilacs across the county let alone on the trail this year,” said David Rollins, founder of the festival. Fifty Shades of Lilac was a fitting theme this year as lilacs bloomed along the trail where musicians and artists gathered. From garden talks and demonstrations to a photography contest, Main Street was a hub of activity for plein air artists, buskers, area horticultural societies and more. “Thanks to the community for supporting the event and all the volunteers who helped to make this such a success,” Rollins told the crowd gathered

at the gazebo downtown for the official opening. “We have two sold-out events this year, Jazz night tonight [with vocalist Adi Braun] and the ‘Love My Shoes’ luncheon next weekend at a 50 per cent increase over attendance last year,” he added. Co-chairs Janice Allen and Judy Norlock welcomed everyone to the week-long celebration. An Ontario cultural attractions grant of $15,000 helped the lilac committee promote the festival this year. A special tribute was made to Lee Sykes and Tom Dodd who planted downtown flower boxes and set up lilac arrangements for display. They have been doing this for several years. Dignitaries and officials offered greetings during the opening ceremony. Down the street the first ever photography contest presented winners with their prizes. A total of 110 entries were received from far and wide. Winner of the Junior category was 16-year-old Wesley Campbell of Wark-

worth whose sunrise captured on the Little Mississippi River near Bancroft took first place. “I have a thing for photography. I look at everyday things that people may not necessarily notice,” he told Trent Hills Independent. In a surprise announcement he said his winning photo was taken with his iPod. First prize went to Bob Perks from Cobourg with his photo titled “Daffodil.” Second prize was won by Roger Leekham of Toronto with his photo “Mating Swallows.” Third prize went to Stuart Morley of Cobourg with “Slipper Orchid.” The People’s Choice Award went to Mary Macfarlane of Peterborough for her photo called “Spring Treat.” Passports filled with coupons from local businesses offered savings to festival goers. Perhaps Trent Hills Town Crier Tom Kerr said it best when he heralded the start of the festival. “An event isn’t much unless people show up.” Please see more phtotos on page 3

Doing the “high-five” was quite a stretch for seven-year-old Taylor Walsh who enjoyed meeting Rob Taking time to stop and smell the lilacs that adorned the porch of this business in downtown Warkworth are David Rollins, founder of the Warkworth Power, a busker on stilts, who stood above the crowd gathered for the Warkworth Lilac Festival.

More gold for junior and senior jazz ensembles

EMC News - Campbellford - If Campbellford District High Schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s two jazz ensembles were listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange, the gold theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve accumulated over the years would send their shares soaring.

A family visit to Canada’s amazing “Dinosaur Valley” By John M. Smith

EMC Lifestyles - It seems to me that most young children get very excited when talking about dinosaurs. They seem to be genuinely fascinated by these ancient mammoth creatures that roamed the earth millions of years ago.  Therefore, a visit to Canada’s very own “Dinosaur Valley” would seem to be a wonderful choice for a family vacation.  I’ll bet this destination will prove to be both educational and entertaining. “Dinosaur utopia” is Drumheller, Alberta.  After all, it’s located in the Red Deer River Valley, in Alberta’s bad-

paleontology. It has become one of the leading museums of its kind in the world. When I visited this marvellous museum, I couldn’t help but notice the excited looks of awe on the faces of the many youngsters who were touring Dinosaur Hall, and I felt as if I were on the movie set of Jurassic Park. There were a great many humungous skeletons of dinosaurs surrounding me, reconstructed and standing as they once did— lacking only their leathery hide to complete the picture.  They were, indeed, large, and some of them looked very intimidating, like the Tyran-

enough, on what’s known as the Dinosaur Trail, and it offers a variety of creative, fun, and educational programs for the whole family. You can watch as museum staff prepares fossils in the Preparation Lab, wander through over 300 species of prehistoric plants in the Cretaceous Garden, and experience the underwater world of prehistoric creatures in the Burgess Shale.  Your child can hike and prospect for fossils in the rugged badlands, and even participate in a dig, uncovering and discovering, using professional tools and techniques. Since this world-class museum is located in the heart of

lands, right in the heart of an area where dinosaurs roamed, and at least two dozen species of dinosaurs have been found here. The first Albertosaurus was discovered nearby by a man named J. B. Tyrrell, on August 12, 1884, and although Tyrrell was not a paleontologist, he realized the importance of his discovery and took measures to preserve it. It’s not surprising, then, that Drumheller is now the location of one of the world’s largest collections of dinosaur skeletons, in its Royal Tyrell Museum, and it’s Canada’s only museum that’s devoted exclusively to the study of

nosaurus Rex and the Albertosaurus. There were even painted scenes depicting what the valley might have looked like “back in the day”—with flying reptiles overhead.  One dramatic scene illustrated a meat-eating Albertosaurus devouring a plant-eating horned Centrosaurus (and I learned that several of these huge creatures were primarily plant eaters, including the Archiceratops and the Styracosaurus).  I also met “Super Croc” (Sarcosuchus), the world’s largest crocodile. The Royal Tyrell Museum, Canada’s premier dinosaur museum, is located, fittingly

Canada’s badlands, in Dinosaur Valley, it probably won’t come as a big surprise when I tell you that the town of Drumheller emphasizes this unique feature in its marketing. For example, you’ll find a Badlands Motel, a Jurassic Inn, and a Dinosaur RV Park in Drumheller, along with several dinosaur replicas and murals, including a large dinosaur on the “Welcome to Drumheller” sign.  You’ll also see the Badlands Historical Centre - and several nearby fossil shops including the Fossil Shop, the Fossil World Discovery Centre, Horseshoe Canyon Fossils, etc.  You’ll also find the “World’s Largest Dinosaur,” standing at 86 feet/26.2 metres in the down-

town area, next to the Visitor Information Centre, and for only $3, you can climb up into the mouth of this model Tyrannosaurus Rex for a great view of Drumheller and the surrounding badlands. Drumheller’s annual “DinoFest,” which offers a variety of family friendly activities, takes place this year from June 7 to 9. While in this valley, you’ll also want to check out the incredible hoodoos, mushroom-shaped pillars of rock that have been carved by centuries of wind and rain, and the area’s mammoth Horseshoe and Horsethief Canyons.  You’ll find some great hiking trails at these sites. Before you leave the area, the entire family might be interested in visiting the nearby Atlas Coal Mine National Historic Site, for more than 40 coal mines operated in this valley in the early 1900s (after Sam Drumheller first exploited rich coal reserves in this area), and this one has been preserved for history buffs.  Here you can wander through the historic surface plant buildings including a miner’s shack and the lamp house, wash house, and mine office.  You can even walk around in the footsteps of the miners on the Tipple Trail and read the informative interpre-

tive signs. You can also climb Canada’s last remaining wooden tipple.  Children can don a miner’s hat and enter a tunnel or they can choose to ride on an old coal car.  On special summer dates, there’s even a Ghost Walk offered, for although the mine has been closed for many years, it’s rumoured that all the miners haven’t “checked out.”

When the sun starts shining

Reality Check:

Sheila Wray Gregoire EMC Lifestyles - Isn’t spring wonderful? When the sun is shining and the air is warming, I have the Sound of Music soundtrack constantly playing in my head: These are a few of my favourite things! After a long, cold winter, it’s glorious.

EMC Lifestyles - Do you remember all the rain from a week and a half ago? If you have trouble remembering, it was the day or two before the Big Guy turned off the furnace. (That was one very cold day, Gentle Reader. We came in from the yards at 9:30, well ahead of normal break time, to warm up … something that is not supposed to happen in late May.) We’ve received almost 27 millimetres of rain as of May 26, with 16 millimetres (about 5/8”) of that falling on May 10. There are two comments on that. The first is in the form of a question: when the rain stopped, did you notice a lot of standing water?  For sure, all the potholes on the roads were suddenly the same height; but, most of the water which landed on cultivated ground was completely absorbed.  This tells me that the soil is still very dry where it counts— in the root zones of larger plants. The second comment has to do with the almost overnight greening of the lawns as a result of that rain.  It brings to the

The irises are blooming. The tulips have been triumphant. The strawberries are almost here. And I just switched my closets from winter to summer. It’s hard not to smile. I sometimes wonder if we Canadians realize how bizarre our experience of the seasons is. When we were in Kenya, there was no summer and winter. There was only rainy season and dry season (and rainy season was more aptly named massive flood season). The sun set every day at the same time: shortly after 6. And that’s when it came up, too. That’s life on the equator. There’s not much variety. We have variety in spades. We have short days and long days, and thankfully our long days are also our summer ones! We have hot and cold and everything in between. We tend to think of spring and summer as the time of abundance and new

life, but for many places winter fills that role. When my daughter and I were in Mexico in February, I couldn’t believe the birds! There were yellow warblers and robins and red-winged blackbirds and brown-headed cowbirds. Sound familiar? Those were our birds, living in their winter home. We think of them as Canadian birds, and yet in Mexico, they’re probably thought of as Mexican birds. It’s in the winter that Florida and Mexico have the abundance of wildlife. It all takes off and heads home to us in the summer. But perhaps what has struck me most in the past few weeks, with all the news of Oklahoma tornadoes ripping through schools, is how blessed we are to not have very many natural disasters. Except for B.C., we’re pretty safe from earthquakes. Facebook was all abuzz a few weeks ago when Ottawa had a slight tremor. In California that wouldn’t even

fore how much water grass likes. We all know the once inch per week maxim but that is an intellectual understanding not a “feel it in my bones” knowledge. So, let’s bring this closer to home. One inch of rain works out to approximately 1.5 gallons of water per square foot of lawn.   Measure your yard, multiply by 1.5 and then increase that number fourfold.  Check your water bill and see how much that costs. (If you live in a municipality where your sewer rates are tied into water usage, remember to factor that into the equation.) Lawns are costly aren’t they? However, a verdant greensward is worth the cost but that doesn’t mean we can’t exercise frugality. Want good grass? Plant a tree. Want a grass that needs less water? Look at alternatives to Kentucky Bluegrass. Want to keep that expensive water avail-

have a major natural disaster, and it starts with “mos” and ends with “quito” and makes a taunting buzzing noise. We in Ontario certainly have our share, too, but they seem to multiply faster out west. Yet as much as I detest the little buggers, at least the biggest threats we have from them are some sleepless nights and the occasional, though serious, outbreak of West Nile Virus. My friend, Peter, who has been serving in Somalia, is currently trying to defeat malaria. Even our pests aren’t as bad here! Our cockroaches are smaller. Our ants are tiny and don’t sting. Even our snakes are safer. I know it’s part of being Canadian to complain about the weather, but I’m just not in a complaining mood. Spring is glorious, and we have much to be thankful for. And I’m looking forward to the next few months of abundance and sunshine. Even if I do need mosquito repellent.

The Good Earth: incur some damage. Obviously, this refers to our plants that are heeled into the ground. The impact of the wind against leaf canopies is significant. In newly planted trees, the roots are not anchored into the soil. The lesson here is stake all your plantings. Small trees with a small crown should have one stake on the windward side, larger trees will take two stakes perpendicular, or across, the wind and very large trees will take three with one of them on the windward side. The second point about wind is how much it takes away moisture. We can see the effects in how quickly surfaces dry out; we can feel it with chapped lips and hands, but we often don’t translate that to our plants. The three days after the big rain, we saw winds of 44, 70 and 52 kilometres an hour. We could see signs of dehydration in many of the

Dan Clost deciduous trees and we were full on for irrigation. GR, there is a terrific web site, the National Climate and Data Information Archive, at <>.

Plowing Match celebrating 25 years with new Facebook page

EMC Events - Twenty-five years ago, no one in Hastings County knew they were at the beginning of a very successful summer agricultural tradition! Now, most people involved in the ag industry in Ontario and beyond, know that the Hastings County Plowing Match and Farm Show is one of the premiere outdoor events of the year. Thousands of farmers attending every year say it’s a great showcase! By keeping to a strict “ag related” policy, exhibitors say the show brings the right kind of people out each year. “Produced by farmers for farmers” has been one of the keys to the success of the event. A “no frills” approach has worked very well for the Hastings Plowing Match. “Since all of the workers are volunteers, who have

able to the grass longer? Mulch annually and set the mower blade a titch higher. Stay in tune with the season and the neighbourhood. If the late summer season brings on dormancy, let it happen. We, at the nursery, have labelled 2013 as The Year of the Big Wind. This does not refer to the increased considerations that the mugwumps of corporate have been showing us. In the months of April and May combined (to May 26) we have had no less than 28 days where winds gusted to 31+ kilometres an hour with 19 of those above 45 kilometres an hour. There are two comments arising from those numbers. The first is we spend a lot of time every day, walking around the yard, picking up fallen plants. When the winds are sustained, we let them lie there otherwise they’ll just get blown over again and possibly

have registered. We do get the occasional tornado, and I certainly don’t mean to downplay the seriousness of those we do get. But we’re prone to isolated, small twisters, not the kind that take out an entire city, and with it several schools. We don’t get hurricanes. Sure, Atlantic Canada gets storms, but not to the degree that Louisiana or Florida or the Carolinas do. We may get snow, but that’s not that big a deal. You hunker down, put on some hot cocoa, and snuggle up. You can live through that. When planning a vacation, we don’t have to worry about avoiding tornado season, or hurricane season, or flood season. We just have to worry about avoiding driving through Montreal or Toronto during rush hour. I can live with that, too. Now, Canadians who hail from the prairie provinces will argue that we do

their own farms to run, we keep it to a very simple formula,” says Jim Haggerty, past president and chairman of publicity. “Street after street of farm equipment and technology keeps our visitors happy.” This year’s site on Fairground Road in Quinte West is just a stone’s throw from the site of the very first Hastings County Farm Show and Plowing Match. Just across one field and next to the Trent River, land owned by the Cooney family hosted a few dozen people and a handful of exhibitors! In those past 25 years, there have been many changes and advancements in farming and agriculture in general. Computers and GPS for agricultural use were in their infancy. Social networking

was nonexistent. But, 25 years later, the show will be joining the era of Facebook! The current Queen of the Furrow, Brianna Dracup, will be in charge of this part of the show and is looking forward to this new form of communication. “Knowing that I will be passing on my title this August, I found myself asking, now what? One day, after posting a picture of a Queen function on Facebook, a friend made the joke, Brianna, you are the Plowman’s Facebook page.” When the Plowmen’s Association was presented with the idea, it seemed like a great fit, since the association is always looking for ways to keep youth involved. The group told Brianna to go ahead and run with the

idea as she was considered to be the most active Facebook user. Brianna says, “With this Facebook page, we plan to post info on what will be going on for our 25th anniversary, who we make financial donations to, and any current updates or ‘breaking news’ about the show. The opportunity to be interactive with people who support us year after year is exciting and is a great way to share stories about past, present, and future Hastings County Farm Shows.”   The dates for this year’s Show are August 21 and 22. Site location is 255 Fairground Road, just south of the Stirling Fairgrounds. You can check it out at <> or on Facebook.

EOTA gets $125,011 for trail enhancements By Scott Pettigrew

EMC News - Tweed - There was lots of excitement at the Eastern Ontario Trails Alliance (EOTA) headquarters in Tweed as EOTA Manager Cindy Cassidy was joined by Prince Edward-Hastings MP Daryl Kramp, Hastings County Warden Rick Philips, members of the CDFC and Hastings County Economic Development Officer Andrew Redden in Tweed this past Friday to deliver an exciting funding announcement. The Trails Alliance has been awarded funding from four partnering Community Futures Development Corporations for $125,011 through the Eastern Ontario Development Program. The funding will be used primarily for trail enhancements and the development and delivery of trail packaging workshops. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to thank all of our partners,â&#x20AC;? said Cindy Cassidy, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our growth was

at 28 per cent coming from the Greater Toronto area and southern Ontario and has grown to 53 per cent which is almost double; we have not calculated for 2012 but I am sure our growth will continue to rise. Our permit sales are up 3.1 per cent and we are working with many businesses to sell package experiences where people can stay and play.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;On behalf of the County of Hastings we are pleased to see MP Daryl Kramp here to join us in this important announcement. We feel we are part of an important partnership and we need to take every opportunity when it comes to developing tourism and economic growth. We are very proud of the work the EOTA has done,â&#x20AC;? said Warden Rick Philips. The funding allowed for 82 kilometres of trails to be newly surfaced with gravel.

able many trail-related industries to market more user-friendly trail experiences. Being able to offer more packaged trail experiences will improve visitor access and bring growth to the businesses that

rely upon a vibrant trail system. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am pleased to be a part of this significant contribution to our environment and the well-being of our communities,â&#x20AC;? said MP Daryl Kramp. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This

funding will offer knowledge and enjoyment of our great outdoors for all families to experience. The local CFDC is to commended on doing a very good job recognizing the importance of organizations like the EOTA.â&#x20AC;? The overall project received support from many funding partners as well as the involvement of trail volunteers and businesses. A second phase of funding is currently in the works to market and promote the upgraded trails and packaged experiences. The EOTAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mandate is, â&#x20AC;&#x153;To develop, manage, maintain and market a comprehensive network of year round shared use recreational trails for the economic, tourism and job creation they bring to the area â&#x20AC;Śâ&#x20AC;? You can learn more about EOTA and the trails they help steward at <www.>. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We actually look after 2,300 kilometres of trails,â&#x20AC;?

said EOTA board chair Linda Bracken. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The economic development impact in that area is outstanding. Employment wise it has created 63 jobs and the total taxes that come back to the federal, provincial and municipalities governments total $1,821,090. This benefits all of us; our businesses and our small communities.â&#x20AC;? Community Futures is a not-for-profit organization run by a local board of directors.

Best of the Best to great critical acclaim. Noted journalist John Lomax III gave it a Best of 2012 award for Watson’s remarkable ability to recreate the recordings with such care that it’s nearly impossible to tell the originals from the re-recorded versions some 30 years later. Watson’s 2009 album A Taste of the Truth received “Album of the Year” from a national critics and fan vote, including one award for Album of the Decade. The Citadel Media’s Real Country Radio Network awarded Gene Watson the


Jones was a fan and stated “Gene Watson is one of my all-time favorite ballad singers … the way he belts out a ballad, it just doesn’t get any better than that.” Watson is one of the rare singers who still sings in the same key as he did 30 years ago and his audiences respond with standing ovations night after night when he nails the octave jumping last note on his most requested song, the now country classic Farewell Party. In 2012 Gene released a re-recorded collection of 25 Greatest Hits titled


EMC Entertainment Gene Watson is the torchbearer for traditional country music. In his nearly 50 years in the music business, Watson has amassed seven #1 Country Hits, 23 Top Tens, over 75 charted songs and 49 albums. His first single was released in 1962 and today Gene Watson remains one of country music’s greatest ambassadors. USA Today states: “Gene Watson is one of country’s finest singers.” Associated Press states “He’s never sounded better, which is saying something.” The late George

The man and woman have lived in the village for years, and â&#x20AC;&#x153;weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had no incidents with them,â&#x20AC;? Detective Constable Adam Quemby said. He told reporters the semi-automatic Cobray M11 submachine gun had been â&#x20AC;&#x153;doctored so it was fully automatic,â&#x20AC;? and would continue to fire with the trigger pulled. Nascimento and Lussier were both charged with possession of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking, two counts of unauthorized possession of a firearm, possession of a prohibited or restricted firearm, careless use of a firearm, and knowledge of unauthorized possession of a firearm. Nascimento, who was also charged with two counts of possession of a firearm while prohibited, was kept in custody while Lussier was released on bail.

EMC News - Colborne - A cache of prohibited weapons seized by police at a Colborne residence May 2 included a submachine gun with a laser sight, brass knuckles, knives, switchblades and a Ninja throwing star. The weapons, along with ammunition, lock-picking tools and body armour, were put on display for the news media at Northumberland OPPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Brighton detachment office May 24. They were seized as a result of an ongoing investigation by Northumberland OPP working on information originally provided by the York Regional Police Service. Nobody was home at the time, but two Colborne residents, Nicholas Nascimento, 45, and Kacie Lynn Lussier, 24, were arrested without incident at a home in Tiny Township May 8. Members of the OPPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Provincial Weapons Enforcement Unit, Repeat Offender Parole Enforcement Squad, Tactics and Rescue Unit, Central Region Emergency Response Unit, Central Region Mobile Command Unit and the Southern Georgian Bay detachment attended the residence. Â Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the second seizure of weapons at a Colborne residence in five months. Police laid 83 charges against a 55-yearold Colborne man in December after 15 firearms were found in his home. But Detachment Commander Staff Sergeant Doug Borton said the two cases are not connected. To have even one weapons seizure in the county is â&#x20AC;&#x153;concerning,â&#x20AC;? he admitted, but â&#x20AC;&#x153;thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no cause for concern for

EMC News - Marmora - On May 23, early in the afternoon, visitors taking a walk along the riverside trail, noticed a pair of Canada geese and three goslings swimming by the Marmora dam, a fairly common site at this time of year. Without warning, the young ones were swept into the rushing water by the hydro station and could not escape owing to the strong current. One observer went to look for help and encountered an OPP officer from Central Hastings Detachment who hap-

pened to be nearby. He was asked for his assistance, and although the situation looked grim for the young fowl, he managed with help to fashion a net using plastic snow fencing which he found nearby. To the relief of all, two of the three little ones were scooped out of the water and reunited with their parents to swim away unharmed. One appreciative onlooker sends a special thank you to Provincial Constable Rob Gardiner who she said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;went more than the extra mile to help.â&#x20AC;?

Parents to see son on Metallica stage By Richard Turtle

EMC Entertainment - Stirling Ken and Shirley Deck know that it’s going to be loud. The Stirling couple, who moved to the area from Nova Scotia in recent years, are hoping to attend the Orion Music festival this weekend in Detroit to catch the presenter and

headliner Metallica in action along with plenty of other bands. But, Ken admits, while he’s a longtime fan of the marquee band and its music, he’s not expecting their performance to be his highlight of the show. But it’s not the reason he and his wife even considered the trip either, which is entirely relative.

The Decks’ son, Myles, is a drummer with the Toronto-based band Cauldron and they are set to take the stage Sunday afternoon, the final day of the festival. “It’s still really surreal,” Myles says of being asked to perform at Orion Music, and open for the likes of Metallica and other internation-

ally popular performers. Cauldron, a band he describes as a power trio playing heavy metal in the tradition of the 1970s and 1980s, was on a recent tour of the U.S. and Canada with 32 shows including stops in Vancouver, Los Angeles and New York, when they were contacted by Orion organizers. And while it came with little notice, it was an offer they couldn’t refuse. Myles became the newest member of the band, which includes bassist Jason Decay and guitarist Ian Chains, after joining last year. Having seen them perform live, Deck says, he was so impressed by their shows he later made contact with the players and went on to become their drummer. “We play it because it’s what we love,” he says of the energy of heavy metal music, “good riffs, good songs and a good time.” Cauldron perform some classic cover versions, he says, but primar-

ily their show is made up of original songs. Raised in Halifax, Myles says he got involved in music as a youngster and continued to pursue it through high school. “I took piano as a kid,” he says, “and just progressed from there.” It was in high school when he truly found his passion for the drums, he says. And while continuing to work a pair of part-time jobs, the 24-yearold is also continuing to broaden his musical horizons. Cauldron’s addition to the slate of performers this weekend, he says, came as very surprising and welcome news. Also featured among the long list of performers are The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Rise Against, The Deftones and BASSNECTAR, along with more than 30 other performers. And with the opportunity for some huge exposure, Cauldron is hoping to make a lot of noise.

EMC News - Tweed - On May 25, 2013, at 11:15 p.m. Central Hastings OPP responded to a 911 call from a distraught male reporting he and his family were lost in the bush near Bridgewater Road in Actinolite, north of Tweed. After embarking on an evening all-terrainvehicle ride the family became disoriented and unable to find a trail back out to the main road.

Central Hastings OPP attempted to guide the family out using cruiser sirens and air horns while communicating with the complainant on his cell phone. When this effort failed the OPP Emergency Response Team (ERT) was called in and a ground search was conducted. At 4:45 a.m. the family was located feeling cold, however, in good physical condition.
