HORSING ABOUT

Centre Hastings shows Canadian pride EMC News - Madoc - Prince EdwardHastings MP Daryl Kramp returned to his hometown to open Canada Day festivities at Centre Hastings Park. Kramp said Canada ranks number one as the most desired country in which to live. “Countries are like people, none of them are perfect,” he said, “but, we are well respected.” He remembered those who fought to keep Canada free and those who now serve to protect the nation. He noted, also, that he was raised in Madoc and returned there to raise his own family because, he said, in this little village are “values that have stood the test of time.”

Justin MacDonald, his wife, and children have lived in Madoc six years; he said the park, and events of the day were “great.” I like it because everything is here and it’s not crowded or busy, just comfortable. We love it!” Jeff Bitton, parks and recreation coordinator, thanked his staff and volunteers for bringing the festivities together. “Events like these don’t just happen. There has been a lot of work by volunteers and the community.” Cool weather and rain late in the afternoon did not deter folks from the grand finale of fireworks at dusk.

Stirling celebrates Canada Day

By Richard Turtle

EMC News - Stirling - With live music, free food and fireworks, and a nod to some of the community’s most dedicated volunteers, the municipality of Stirling-Rawdon celebrated Canada Day last Saturday evening at the fairgrounds. Mayor Rodney Cooney was joined at the barbeques by councillors and staff members for more than two hours, where they served

hundreds of hamburgers, hot dogs and drinks to lineups that only began to dwindle after the first hour. And then the lineups for cake started. In the background from the Paula Grills Amphitheatre stage, music was supplied by The Fade Kings as youngsters scaled the climbing wall or bounced in one of two castles set up nearby. Families picnicked on the Please see “Canada” on page 2

and The Fade Kings. As well, Cooney recognized a small group of citizens for their ongoing contributions to the community, asking Stirling-Rawdon Fire Chief Rick Caddick first to introduce a few department members who have reached significant milestones. Firefighter Jim Brownson was recognized for his 20 years of service while colleagues Tyler Dracup and Michael Finch were recognized for achieving their level one certification from the Ontario Fire College. MPP Todd Smith was also on hand to congratulate the local department members on behalf of Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Park. Cooney then returned to the microphone to introduce the municipalityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s newly created Good Neighbour Award, designed to recognize â&#x20AC;&#x153;the people who like to stay behind the scenes and do whatever they have to do.â&#x20AC;? The inaugural winner was Rawdon resident Ralph Finch whose response to a nearby house fire, Cooney says, was indicative of his caring and concern for his community and those around him. First on scene after the recently vacated home became engulfed in flames, Finch was among the last to leave and only after ensuring he had done everything possible for the homeowner. Bill and Grace McKeown were also recognized for their years of volunteerism as a family business. Celebrating their 80th anniversary this year, Cooney says, McKeown Motor Sales has provided â&#x20AC;&#x153;food, equipment, door prizes, manpower, womanpowerâ&#x20AC;? at numerous community events.

Cooney says. As the skies darkened, further crowds began to gather for the eveningâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fireworks display.

Statistics show a spike in services

EMC News - Madoc - The Central Hastings Support Network (CHSN) in Madoc operates the Helping Hands food bank. Agency director Jean McDonnell said the group is â&#x20AC;&#x153;suffering because of reduced food supply from the Ontario Association of Food Banks [OAFB] and an increase in clients.â&#x20AC;? She speculated the agency is not getting as many corporate donations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been able to get the bulk purchases of products we used to from Gleaners Food Bank Quinte, and we have more clients coming in on a regular basis.â&#x20AC;? The Gleaners food share program relies on products from the OAFB. Sally Gale, co-ordinator of the Madoc

By Scott Pettigrew

Food Bank, reported May 2013 statistics show a spike in services compared to last year. Overall, 209 persons were served during the month compared to 117 in 2012, with a signiďŹ cant increase in children, 94 versus 38 last year. McDonnell stated recent research indicates Hastings and Prince Edward counties have the highest rate, 11.3 per cent, of food insecurity in Ontario, with 3.8 per cent of that population suffering severe food insecurity. At a strategic planning meeting last week McDonnell shared the results of the study by Hastings and Prince Edward County Children and Youth Services Network Joint Food Security Working Group. The study began in 2011 to gather and analyze data speciďŹ c to the counties. Data indicated a number of areas where

the counties are doing better than the provincial average, but, food security was marked as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;red ďŹ&#x201A;ag.â&#x20AC;? The Food Security Network of the Ontario Public Health Association (2002) stated: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Community food security is a strategy for ensuring secure access to adequate amounts of safe, nutritious, culturally appropriate food for everyone produced in an environmentally sustainable way and provided in a manner that promotes human dignity.â&#x20AC;? Statistics Canada, Canadian Community Health Survey of 2007/2008, shows those who suffer most from food insecurity tend to be individuals on public assistance and those who do not own their own homes. OAFB reports in their 2012 statistics that more people are using food bank ser-

vices than ever before, 64.5 per cent of food bank users were low-income, rental market tenants, 19.2 per cent of food banks ran out of nutritious food during the month. In the month of March 2012 over 17,000 households used food banks for the ďŹ rst time. Causes for the increase are attributed to â&#x20AC;&#x153;unemployment rates, rising food and housing costs, and cuts to government expenditures,â&#x20AC;? while environmental anomalies (severe weather) have impacted jobs, and food supply, which increased demand on food banks. McDonnell said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The food bank is seeing more working people not able to make ends meet.â&#x20AC;? The agency serves people from Madoc Township, Tudor and Cashel and Centre Hastings. She said they have had dif-

ďŹ culty in providing substantial amounts and variety for clients and are hoping to come up with new ways to stock shelves at the food bank. Locally, CHSN held a fashion show beneďŹ t in February which gave them close to $1,500 and a village yard sale in late May from which they proďŹ ted just over $1,000. They receive occasional donations from local agencies and individuals. A â&#x20AC;&#x153;cram the cruiserâ&#x20AC;? food drive is planned for the end of July and a second annual art show August 9, 10 and 11 at Arts Centre Hastings. They have also stimulated a â&#x20AC;&#x153;grow a row, give a rowâ&#x20AC;? program to encourage local gardeners to donate fresh produce in season, and encourage long-range planning for monthly donations by individuals and businesses.

Another tower controversy looms

EMC News - Tweed - First there was the communications tower that Xplornet put up on the Flinton Road which raised all kinds of concerns but was installed anyway. Then there was another Xplornet tower proposed to go in east of Vanderwater Park that would have

seriously affected an organic farming operation that was eventually moved through public pressure (although it was deemed to have been moved because a better site was found) and now there is a Bell communications tower being proposed for 99 James Street in Tweed. Council plans to send a let-

ter of concerns to Bell in response to the public notiďŹ cation to the proposed site. Councillor Don DeGenova sits on the Persons and Property committee and recently attended a public meeting held in regards to the new tower. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Their satellite images are way

out of date and do not even show residences on Alexander Street,â&#x20AC;? said Don. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is my opinion that Bell is competing for their share of the wireless market. The feeling from those at the meeting was the letter they received was rude and condescending.â&#x20AC;? The letter being sent by council

St. Andrews raises $1,200 from bake sale

will address the following issues; old satellite mapping does not show the new residential development on Alexander Street, tower placement would be detrimental to residential development in the immediate area of the proposed site. The municipality is not aware of issues or complaints about current cell phone and Internet access in the village; other sites have been suggested to Bell which would be more suitable. The municipality has been provided with copies of unfavourable comments from neighbouring property owners to Bell in response to the public notiďŹ cation of the proposed tower site. Mayor Jo-Anne Albert noted that Bell said they should meet with the municipality but it has never happened. Councillor DeGenova also said that at the end of the day council does not have the power to stop the tower from going in. In other news from the Tweed council meeting, a vote was needed to pass a recommendation to allow the Tweed Elvis Festival an

extra day of camping on the Thursday night of the threeday festival. Councillor Justin Bray said he had heard concerns trailer park operators â&#x20AC;&#x153;â&#x20AC;Ś who are tax payers, might be losing business to the camping at the Elvis site. If we allow them the Thursday this year, will they be asking for Wednesday next year?â&#x20AC;? Council did pass the recommendation to allow the Elvis festival the extra day of camping and also gave them an exemption from the new smoking bylaw. In Patti Bergeronâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s CAO report she said she received a letter from Canada Post that they will be reducing their hours by half an hour each day and will be closing at 5 p.m. instead of 5:30. She also said that after council sent a letter to MP Daryl Kramp explaining concerns about the Post OfďŹ ce and its importance to Tweed, that MP Kramp made a phone call to the Municipal OfďŹ ce in Tweed, said he had met with representatives of Canada Post, and they assured him there is no danger of the Tweed Post OfďŹ ce closing.

EMC News - Tweed - St. Andrewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Presbyterian Church in Tweed has a bake sale every year on the Canada Day weekend and this year was very good for the church as they netted $1,200 from baked goods, plant sales and a barbeque. Gail Brown is one of the organizers of the sale and said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We appreciate Stonepath nurseries donating plants for our sale; they help us out every year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Without this sale we would have trouble keeping our doors open for the church. Right now one of the projects is to redo the bathrooms.â&#x20AC;? Gail said the church now has a new

minister. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are very excited about the appointment of Steven Brown as our new minister. He is 27 years old and this is his ďŹ rst appointment to a church. It has been two years since we have had our own minister. We see this as a new beginning for our church; our congregation has dropped because we have not had a minister.â&#x20AC;? Gail added that the women from the church work very hard preparing for the sale, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our ladies donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bake just one or two pies, because we are such a small congregation, the ladies bake three or four each as well as tarts and other baked goods.â&#x20AC;?

Cenotaph fencing in need of major repair EMC News - Tweed - The Cenotaph at Memorial Park has brand new fencing that was installed only two years ago and was funded by the Tweed Legion as well as private donations but now must be taken down completely and sand blasted to remove the paint. Hal Trites, who initially led the campaign to get the fence replaced, attended the June 25 council meeting to ask council for financial assistance with repair. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The fencing should have been done and over with,â&#x20AC;? explained Hal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The problem is that the primer that was initially used is not compatible with the new style paint and now all the paint is peeling off and looks awful.â&#x20AC;? Hal said he has been consulting with Neil Miller who sent Hal a letter which he read to council. In the letter it says that Neil Miller, in connection with Daren Green of Tyendinega, will remove

nine panels of fencing and take them to Greenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shop where all the paint and rust will be removed. He will then epoxy the panels and repaint them with polyurethane paint and reinstall them at the Cenotaph, all within seven days starting next week. The letter went on to say the job will be guaranteed for ten years bearing in mind any unforeseen damage that could be done by vehicles. The entire cost will be $2,255.68. Hal said that with or without financial assistance from council that the Legion, after having had a meeting about the fence, agreed that the job must be done. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People at the Legion are upset about the issue but agree there is nothing we can do but fix it. There is another way to fix the problem which would be to simply paint it again and Neil Miller has agreed to supply the paint but this would be a band-aid approach. Neil is a veteran and appreciates the

Deputy-mayor Bryan Treanor asked how much it cost for the last paint job and Hal said that Mr. Miller had done it for free last time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They power washed the fence but it needs to be taken down to the metal to repair it.â&#x20AC;? Mayor Jo-Anne Albert asked Hal if the ten-year guarantee would be in writing and Hal said that Mr. Green would be willing to sign a guarantee.

EMC News - Tweed - Students from all three schools in Tweed were asked by the Tweed Historical Society to submit posters depicting different historical themes from around Tweed in anticipation of the societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 25th Anniversary celebration this fall. Roseann Trudeau chair of the 25th Anniversary committee said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The poster contest was initiated by Ellen Williams and the idea was to get the children involved in the history of our community. We are going to use the winnersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; posters to produce post cards which we will have for sale. It will be a memento of the 25th anniversary of the historical society as well as the history of our community. The Heritage Centre, which is supported by the Historical Society, has a lot to offer our community; it is a huge resource that a lot of people are not aware of and we need to make everyone aware of the importance of our history.â&#x20AC;? Ellen Williams was the chair of the anniversary committee and has now been replaced by Roseann after stepping down for personal reasons. Roseann continued, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The plans for the celebration are going very well. We are having a big barbeque this Saturday at the Heritage Centre to kick off the event.

Youth Centre announces new co-ordinator

EMC News - Stirling - The Stirling Youth Action Centre (YAC) has a new co-ordinator. Ginelle Powell says it was both her education and her partnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s military posting in Trenton that led to her new job, and she has high hopes that hours and services will be increased in the coming months. A graduate of Carleton University with a history and political science degree specializing in child psychology, Powell says the YAC is a natural fit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love history, I love politics and I love kids,â&#x20AC;? she says, adding that overseeing the operations of a youth centre involves making connections and encouraging learning. And she has â&#x20AC;&#x153;lots of plansâ&#x20AC;? moving forward. A late April announcement from the Trillium Foundation that the Stirling YAC had received nearly $90,000 for two yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funding led to the hiring and, says Board Chair Nia Brett, â&#x20AC;&#x153;implementation of Board directives, new funding initiatives, collaborative community programing and proactive development measures are goals being formed in the near future.â&#x20AC;?

EMC News - Stirling - When Foodland marked its 50th anniversary at the villageâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grocery store last weekend, it was Centre Hastings People Helping People that walked away with a gift. The Madoc-based registered charity provides those in need in a time of crisis with financial assistance, advocacy, clothing, furniture, educational devices and necessities such as eye glasses. CHPHP Treasurer Wynne Rollins admits there are many who are unaware of the organization, but the additional exposure at the grocery store, as well as funds raised through hamburger, ice cream and drink sales donated by the store was certain to help. The plan to support the organization during their own store celebration, and fly the CHPHP banner in a busy parking lot, came as very welcome news, she says.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

$200 an hour to clean your teeth?

Dear Editor, I would like to address the obscene cost of dentistry here in Ontario. Someone really should bring out in to the open the unnecessarily high prices being charged for dental work here, the rest of Canada, and in the U.S.A. Plumbers, electricians, auto mechanics, and other trades take years to learn their trades and get certiďŹ ed. They spend many thousands of dollars to obtain the tools and other needs of their respective trades to equip themselves properly to do the job. These trades generally charge $65 to $80 per

hour for their work. Why then does a dental technician need to charge $200 an hour to clean your teeth? In Mexico the regular price of teeth cleaning by a dentist is 350 to 400 Pesos, around $30. Why canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t we get our teeth cleaned here, 45 minutes work and $1 worth of materials plus water for $75? Nobel Biocare is one of the top brands in dental implants. A Toronto dentist quoted $5,000 for one of these implants. A local, really good dentist, here quoted $3,500 for an implant but didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t specify the brand he would use. Five dentists in Mexico quoted $1,500 to

$2,025 for a Nobel Biocare implant put in by a specialist assisted by a dentist. Does anyone think that Nobel Biocare sells their implants any cheaper to the Mexican dentist than they do to the Toronto dentist? Is it any wonder people are walking around with half their teeth here because they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford the cost of replacing them. High quality non-metallic caps or crowns on a tooth here cost $900 to $1,000 per tooth. In Mexico the same quality crown is $350. So the story continues. If a dentist here needs $250 to $300 an hour for

his time and you equate the time spent you will not reach the obscene prices being quoted for their work. Why? The governing body of dentists really has to look at their commitment to the community and address the affordability of what they are charging for their work. Why do we, the Canadian population, and the retired people have to go without teeth, eating on spaces instead of teeth to feed their greed. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time we stood up to these people and tell them we are fed up and will not pay these prices. There are laws in the Unfair Business Practises Act, with

Criminal Code consequences for people overcharging for what they do. Why are dentists exempt from these laws? Surely itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an unfair business practice for a dental assistant to charge $200 an hour for her time and $1 worth of paste. Surely itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an unfair business practice for a dentist to charge $5,000 for an implant or $1,000 for a crown. We need to address this issue and we need to do it now as the Boomers start to retire on old teeth. Are we about to become a country of toothless people? Garry Hershberg, Havelock

The deeper you dig, the more incestuous it gets Mr. Perelmuter added that this is made clear to clients, and if the event seems remotely political, clients are directed to his Member of Parliament ofďŹ ces to book him as a Member of Parliament.â&#x20AC;? Commissioner Dawson concluded her report by stating, â&#x20AC;&#x153;On the basis of the information provided, I have no reason to believe that Mr. Trudeau has contravened sections 8 or 9 of the Code [as alleged by Del Maestro]. He is carrying on business as a paid speaker while respecting his other obligations under the Code, and this is permitted under Section 7 of the Code. For these reasons, I have decided that an inquiry is not warranted.â&#x20AC;? This public offensive against Justin Trudeau was sparked when the PMO released a letter written by Grace Foundation board member Susan Buck to the Speakers Spotlight. President Perelmuter responded to Buck via email on April 9 saying, â&#x20AC;&#x153;we were confused by the request for a refund since we had followed up after the event, nine months prior to receiving the letter, and were told that the Grace Foundation was pleased with the outcome of Justinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s presentation.â&#x20AC;?

Dear Editor: Prince Edward-Hastings MP Daryl Krampâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reading of Conservative talking points in the House of Commons on June 18, 2013 proved to be pathetically transparent. Krampâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s feigned outrage regarding Justin Trudeauâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to command some rather hefty fees on the speakersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; circuit was obviously just another attempt by the Prime Ministerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s OfďŹ ce (PMO) to shift Canadiansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; focus away from Mike Duffyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sordid little affair. Bloated greed surfacing in false expense claims from a Conservative senator bears no comparison. One would think Conservatives might applaud such fair functioning within the free enterprise system. Justin Trudeauâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s speaking engagements are booked through an agency called Speakersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Spotlight, which represents a wide range of public speakers. In ConďŹ&#x201A;ict of Interest and Ethics Commissioner Mary Dawsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s April 13, 2010 report, written in response to Peterborough Conservative MP Dean Del Maestroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s March 15, 2010 complaint about Justin Trudeau getting paid to speak, she wrote: â&#x20AC;&#x153;He [Mr. Trudeau] has included a letter from Mr. Martin Perelmuter, President of Speakersâ&#x20AC;&#x2DC; Spotlight, conďŹ rming their bookings for Mr. Trudeau are only in his capacity as an individual who speaks about environment, youth and education.

Dear Editor, Chutzpah is a word derived from Yiddish and Hebrew that can be deďŹ ned as shameless effrontery, utter nerve and even insolence. It could be used to describe many activities of the current Harper Conservatives, including the following. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only been a month since the Federal Court found that widespread voter suppression targeting nonConservative Party of Canada (CPC) voters took place during the 2011 election, and that the most likely source of the data used to make the fraudulent calls was the CPCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s database. In a stunning move we now learn that the Conservative MPs in the case have ďŹ led a request in Federal Court seeking reimbursement of $355,907.56 in legal costs from the nine individuals who bravely launched this case. They even go so far as to refer to this as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;modestâ&#x20AC;? amount that is a â&#x20AC;&#x153;small fraction of the actual costsâ&#x20AC;? the MPs spent ďŹ ghting the applications. Remember, these are

the same Conservative MPs who, in the words of Justice Richard Mosley, â&#x20AC;&#x153;engaged in trench warfare in an effort to prevent this case from coming to a hearing on the merits.â&#x20AC;? Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s be clear here: All Canadians have the right to defend their vote where it has been infringed upon. Nine individuals stepped up to challenge the robocall scandal and $1,000 in security for costs was ďŹ led with each application in each of the seven ridings. They faced months of relentless attacks and shameless delays by the Conservative MPs and their highpowered legal team who tried to stop them at every turn. Thanks to support from thousands of generous Canadians, they were able to overcome these obstructions, pursue justice and prove widespread election fraud happened in May 2011. Now, rather than accepting this exposure of the most vicious attack ever on Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s democracy, these

Conservative MPs want these individuals to pay them more than $350,000, instead of thanking their lucky stars that the judgement did not go so far as ďŹ nd them guilty as individuals. The Conservative Party has also been strangely silent about how its votersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; lists were accessed and its security was breached by those who used them to perpetrate this crime. Hopefully the voting public will remember this and many other examples of obfuscation and oft-employed viliďŹ cation together with the secrecy, misinformation, mismanagement and abuses of public ofďŹ ce that have characterized Harperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Conservative government and crush them at the polls in the next election. Better to have them pensioned off at great expense to us than completely ruining the country, morally and ďŹ nancially as well as Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reputation abroad.

that slightly tinted bags can be used. Standard non-compliance stickers will be used when a garbage bag is not picked up in the urban centre informing the resident why it was left. Letters were sent to owners of apartment buildings advising they are responsible for their tenants for clear bag compliance. The contractor will record the number of non-clear bags in receptacle bins at apartment buildings and an invoice will be sent to the property owner. More information about the recyclables and clear bags regulations will be on the municipal web site.â&#x20AC;? Discussion was also held at the council meeting about camp ground owners at Tippers and Riverside Campgrounds and the challenges they face with recycling into clear bags. In the Infrastructure report it said that there

was concern about how to handle waste from as many as 200 people staying at the campgrounds at one time. Mayor Jo-Anne Albert said council intends to work with the campground as best they can and it was mentioned the campgrounds had gone out and purchased large bins. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The problem is when they bring in one clear bag that has one plastic bottle at the bottom of a whole truck load do we make them unpack it or charge them for it?â&#x20AC;? asked Councillor Justin Bray. The campgrounds have asked for leniency for three months this year while they get their customers used to the idea of recycling. The other issue pointed out by councillors is the appearance of inconsistency for different users of the waste disposal site.

The Nicaraguan canal

Gwynne Dyer

EMC Editorial - On June 10, the Nicaraguan parliament voted in favour of building a $40-billion canal across the country connecting the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. Since the country is dirt poor, the money would have to come from international investors. It would be raised by a Hong Kongbased firm, HKDN Group, which in return would get the right to build and run the canal for 50 years. But nobody outside Nicaragua took the plan very

seriously. On June 15, Nicaragua’s president, Daniel Ortega, and Wang Jing, the owner of HKDN, signed a contract that gives the Central American nation 51 per cent of the company’s shares. Wang said the capital could easily be raised from Chinese companies and international banks, but since his only business experience has been in running telecommunications firm Xinwei Telecom, again nobody took much notice. So on June 25, Wang went public. Speaking in Beijing, he said he had already attracted global investors. Work on the canal would start in 2014, and it would be open by 2020. “We don’t want it to become an international joke, and we don’t want it to turn into an example of Chinese investment failures,” he said, adding that returns on the project were “sure to make every investor smile broadly.” Promoters always talk like that, and there would still not be much reason to take Wang and Ortega seriously if it were not for one fact: Chinese businessmen do not launch projects of this scale without the support of the Chinese government. The risk of embarrassment is just too high. Wang denies that he has official support, of course: “I am a very normal Chinese citizen. I couldn’t be more normal.” But if Beijing really is behind the project, then it may actually happen. So what would be the implications of a 286-kilometre (178-mile) waterway connecting the Caribbean with the Pacific via Lake Nicaragua. For Nicaragua, they would be huge. The Nicaraguan government claims that work on the Great Interoceanic Canal and associated projects—a “dry canal” freight railway, an airport and two duty-free zones—could double Nicaragua’s GDP and triple employment by 2018. In a country that still does not have a proper highway connecting its two coasts, that would change everything. For Panama, whose existing canal has been the mainstay of the country’s economy for a century, the competition

We’re number two!

would be very serious. A $5-billion project to double the Panama Canal’s capacity by building a third chain of locks across the isthmus is nearing completion, but it will still be restricted to taking ships of 65,000 tons or less. The rival canal in Nicaragua would be able to accommodate the new generation of ships ranging up to 250,000 tons, but there will not be enough shipping to keep both canals in business unless world trade continues to expand rapidly. In any case competition in transit rates would be fierce, and it might well come to pass that neither canal was very profitable. Then there is the environmental question. The new route would cross Lake Nicaragua, the region’s largest freshwater lake, bringing with it not only pollution but the risk of introducing salt-water species that could disrupt the lake’s ecology. But if it is forced to choose between economic growth and environmental purity, there is no doubt that Nicaragua’s government would choose growth. The biggest question, however, is strategic. The United States built the Panama Canal and ran it for many years. Two-thirds of the cargo that goes through the canal comes from or is going to U.S. ports, and American warships still have the right to jump the queue of ships waiting to go through. As a country with coasts on both the Atlantic and the Pacific, the United States sees control of the fastest way between the two oceans as a high strategic priority. Despite the hand-over of the existing canal to the Panamanian government in 1999, at the moment the U.S. still has that control. It would have far less control over a Nicaraguan canal, and will doubtless do its best to derail the project. That’s an inevitable strategic reflex, but it is not necessarily the case that a Nicaraguan canal would really lessen the U.S. Navy’s strategic dominance in the region. Nothing is more vulnerable than a canal in wartime, and even in confrontations where force is not yet being used canals are easily blockaded. And although the Chinese navy no doubt enthusiastically backs the Nicaraguan project, it’s hard to see what real strategic advantage it would gain. The new canal is certainly feasible from an engineering point of view. It may be viable economically, depending on cost factors that have not yet been calculated and on the rate of expansion of world trade. But its fate will probably be decided by the Chinese government’s willingness to back what is, for China, a vanity project. And that, in turn, will depend on whether China’s economy remains strong enough to afford such an indulgence. At the moment, I wouldn’t bet on it.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Remove the Senators and elect new ones

Dear Editor, The Canadian Senate is far from being democratic. No one elects the Senate, it is appointed by the prime minister in power. The prime minister can appoint anyone they want to be a senator. The person may be a friend or someone the prime minister owes a favour to, or just someone who helped them become prime minister. They will usually pick people who will benefit them. The Senate has the power to refuse laws and should therefore be loyal to the people of Canada not the prime minister. The Senate is supposed to protect Canada from irresponsible laws. But how can we be protected when they are working for the government making the irresponsible laws? The Senate also gets paid tax dollars to question the government. Should they not be unbiased? The Senate needs to be reformed so that all Canadians will have more power to change Canada. What Canada, as a democratic country, needs to do is

repair the Senate. To do this, Canada needs to collectively decide to remove the people working as the Senate. Once that is done, Canada can choose to elect people to become a new democratic Senate. Canadians can vote on the details in a referendum such as who will qualify, where they must be from and how they will be elected. An elected Senate will make Canada a true democracy. We will no longer have to have laws approved by people who are born into wealthy families or considered to have better judgment. This will create more needed jobs as the people appointed by the prime minister are often individually wealthy. Also every Canadian will have a larger voice on deciding what our country will be like. Laws control our entire world therefore we should, as Canadians, have more say about how we want our nation run. Katey Townsend, Stirling

EMC Editorial - Well, we can’t actually claim that distinction alone but we’re in pretty good company along with the UK, Australia and New Zealand. Can you guess who’s number one? When all is said and done, being one of the United States “second class” or “second party” countries isn’t much to brag about. All it really means is that under international intelligence agreements, the aforementioned English-speaking countries are more trusted than well, those darn Europeans. Those crazy eavesdropping, fun-loving people at the U.S. National Security Agency don’t waste a lot of time listening to our phone conversations or tapping into our email mainly because our own governments are probably busy doing that for them and passing along the information. Germany definitely isn’t enjoying their third-class status at the moment. Last week’s revelations, courtesy of Edward Snowden, have Germany more than a little upset with their ally. It seems despite the fact that the UK, Denmark, the Netherlands, France, Germany, Spain and Italy all have formal agreements to provide communications data to the U.S., that wasn’t quite enough for the Yankees. Now, it’s come to light that the Americans have been bugging the European Union’s offices in Washington and at the UN while hacking into their computers. Only a fool would believe the United States and most other countries in the world don’t spy on one another but the country that likes to draw lines in the sand apparently has crossed a very big one and put its foot squarely in it. Considering that the Americans and Europeans have spent years laying the groundwork for a free trade agreement worth hundreds of billions of dollars, timing is everything. Could you imagine spending years setting things up for negotiations (which were supposed to start this week) only to find out that the U.S. was listening in on the phone conversations of your top officials. To add fuel to the fire, the U.S. is also accused of running an operation out of NATO headquarters in Brussels to infiltrate the telephone and email networks in the Union’s Justus Lisius building which is the venue for EU summits and is the home of the European council. Using NATO headquarters as a base for spying on the European parliament certainly won’t win any friends in Europe or among its allies.  Germany, the EU’s powerhouse, bore the brunt of the U.S. shenanigans, with Justice Minister Sabine Leutheusser-Schnarrenberger quoted in the German newspaper Bild as saying, “If the media reports are true, it is reminiscent of the actions of enemies during the cold war. It is beyond imagination that our friends in the U.S. view Europeans as the enemy.” Der Spiegel magazine reported that leaks from Edward Snowden claimed that the U.S. National Security Agency tapped into half a billion German phone calls, emails and SMS messages each month. The Brits, who seem to follow on American coattails whenever possible are said to have done extensive tapping of German phone and Internet traffic and shared that information with the NSA. The Germans are not amused. On Sunday it was announced that Germany is preparing charges against UK and U.S. intelligence services. Given that the German is rated as thirdclass trustworthy in the eyes of Americans, the Germans may want to seriously downgrade the trust status of the Americans to a negative number. With these latest revelations, the Americans’ threatening language to any and all countries that might grant Snowden asylum, may be explained by their need to apprehend Snowden before more spit hits the fan. Threatening Venezuela was just plain comical. They must have felt they were in the movie Groundhog Day, it’s such an every day occurrence. Threats by U.S. senator and chairman of the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee Robert Menendez to Ecuador were met with amusement and scorn by President Raphael Correa. Menendez threatened to take away U.S. trade benefits which would hurt Ecuador’s flower and broccoli exports to the U.S. Correa responded, “Ecuador doesn’t accept pressure or threats from anyone and doesn’t barter its principles and sovereignty or submit to mercantile interests.” Correa then proclaimed that he wouldn’t be blackmailed by the U.S. and renounced the $23 million per year in reduced tariffs afforded in the trade benefit deal while offering the Americans $23 million in aid to train U.S. government employees to respect human rights. He went on to complain about the usual U.S. double standard. Ecuador has tried for years to get the States to extradite two bankers wanted on criminal charges but the U.S. has ignored them. Now they expect Ecuador to extradite Edward Snowden should he seek asylum there. As for Snowden himself, he’s still holed up in Russia in the Moscow airport hoping one of the 20 countries he’s contacted with the help of the Russians will offer him asylum. Politicians in France are so upset by the U.S.’s behaviour that support for granting asylum to Snowden has crossed party lines. Russia may in fact be the country he stays in because as Putin pointed out, no doubt with a smirk on his face, Russia has no extradition treaty with the U.S. and has never extradited anyone. Father Putin has advised his wayward son Snowden, however, that releasing any more information may not be in his best interests. The strangest part of this whole affair is that China, Russia and a couple of South American countries are the ones sounding like true human rights activists and the U.S. definitely is not. It’s become quite the topsy-turvy world.

Looking ahead to high school will be easily accomplished with the guidance and support of parents, teachers, pastors and principals.” Once the certificates had been presented, and the many photos taken, accompanied by fun and plenty of laughter, it was time for Valedictorian Mary O’Connor to address her fellow classmates. She said of her class, “We have spent many years at Sacred Heart, growing and learning together, and we are now on our way to high school. We have made lasting friendships and memories …” She referred to the guidance and support received from the teachers and

educational assistants at Sacred Heart, who, she said, made sure the students made the right choices both in school and out in the yard, “so we didn’t end up spending our last year in the Principal’s office with Mr. Murphy!” She then spent time featuring each of her classmates, talking about their quirks and qualities to both laughter and appreciation from all. In referring to teacher Lisa Alberta’s classroom rules of respect and responsibility, O’Connor commented that they were valuable lessons for class and for personal relationships. She concluded by saying of the classroom teacher, “Mrs. Alberta respects our decisions and cares for us like we were her own kids.” In turn, Mrs. Alberta spoke, saying, “These have been a wonderful group of students to work with and my first and foremost job tonight, is to thank you for sharing them with us. We are pretty blessed to come to work every day and we know it.”

The last prize to be presented was the Superintendent of Education Award, which was given to Gillian Chapman, a student who stood out spiritually, academically, socially and in sports. The awards were followed by the traditional slide show featuring the graduates over the course of their school years, which was at some times funny and at others poignant, but always entertaining. The evening concluded with refreshments for all, which included a variety of snacks and two very large and attractive graduation cakes.

Centre Hastings council briefs municipal road requirements set out for emergency response vehicles, suggesting council would be liable if response times were impaired by roads he said are currently filled with potholes. The average cost to maintain the 41 roads around the lake is $10,000 per year, paid by the property owners for which they were reimbursed half by the municipality since 2007. He stated lakeside dwellers pay a much higher land tax than elsewhere and that the population on the lake rises to close to 300 in the summer.

Councilor Shelby KrampNeuman motioned to reinstate the gravel sharing program. It was voted down by Councillors Mike Kerby and Larry Mitz with Reeve Owen Ketcheson finalizing the defeat.

EMC News - Centre Hastings - The month-end council meeting for Centre Hastings heard a summary report of their 2012 draft audit presented by representatives of Collins Barrow chartered accountants. It appears the municipality is operating in good order and has not fluctuated over the year, though, the auditors noted the percentage of unpaid taxes is high compared to the ten per cent guideline recommended by the Ministry of Municipal Affairs. Uncollected property tax revenue has risen to 17.35 per cent, which Collins Barrow says is higher than recommended and suggests council address the matter. Costs for the audit totalled $33,500. The report is available on line through the municipal web site <www.centrehastings. com>. Moira Lake resident Joe Kaehler addressed council regarding maintenance of roads and concerns of the Moira Lake Property Owner’s Association over council’s decision to discontinue a $5,000 subsidy for gravel costs. The “gravel matching” program was established in 2007 and voted out of the budget this year. Kaehler stated he spent close to 200 hours doing research “gleaning fact from fiction” and determined the real issue is “perceived equality.” He stated the decision to rescind the program was influenced by the Rate Payers Association who suggested it was a nonessential service in 2012.  Kaehler argued the program is an essential service for 92 permanent residents, many of whom are in their senior years. He said this demographic is more likely to require emergency services. He referenced

Happy Canada Day to all By Judy Backus

EMC Events - Marmora Red and white were in evidence along main street and in the park when residents gathered to celebrate Canada Day. Flags, balloons, clothing and in several cases, colourful costumes, were featured throughout the festivities. Organized as in the past by members of the Marmora Crowe Valley Lions Club, the dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s events began with a parade featuring the music of the pipe band known as the Rogues of Northumberland, and Hulan Pierreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Steel Drum Band, which had many onlookers moving in time to the beat. There were cars,

both old and new, one with the Pink Panther leaning out the window, and another carrying members of council. The Shriners were on hand with their clowns, speeding cycles and tall camels, as were representatives of various local organizations. Once the parade had passed, the crowd moved on down to the park where the celebrations continued with music, games, fun and food. There was a pause in the music as Reeve Terry Clemens headed to the gazebo to present the senior of the year Award to Dianne Cole in recognition of her many years of service within the Marmora

Graduates bid farewell to Marmora Senior By Judy Backus

EMC News - Marmora - Excitement was evident as members of Marmora Senior Public School’s Grade 8 class prepared for their June 24 graduation ceremony held in the blissfully cool surroundings of Marmora Pentecostal Church. Once the graduates, suitably attired and coiffed for the occasion, had taken their seats, the ceremony began. Principal Suzanne Copeland welcomed all, then introduced Trustee Bonnie Danes who addressed the students, their friends and relatives, many of whom arrived equipped with cameras, which over the evening were put to good use. Danes congratulated the graduates, saying “This is your big day! This is your graduation with awards, a dinner and a dance.” She referred to the ten letters in the word graduation, saying that each letter represented a year from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 8. She

told the group, “Receiving your Grade Eight diploma is a very important step in your education and that is why this room is full of people who want to celebrate this event with you … Everyone here is proud of you, so enjoy the rest of this important and memorable day, have a wonderful summer, and I wish you continued success in your next important educational journey at the high school level.” Grade 8 teachers Dianne Sedore McCoy and Alex Broek presented the majority of the awards of excellence, which included those in each of the subject areas, as well as several special ones, among them, the Environmental Award, which was presented to Caine Arnold, and the Mr. and Mrs. Gow Award for Outstanding Creative Ability which was won by Noelle Hoekstra and Samantha Weaver. The Charles Mowatt Award for Drama was presented to Delaney Greystock and Brydon McCarrol, while the local firefighters’ award for attendance

went to Noelle Hoekstra. When it came to athletics, Brayden Bertrand and Makenna Jennings were declared the male and female athletes of the year, while Dillan Whitney and Kainah Huckle were recognized for their efforts in track and field. The Agnes Loveless Award for General Excellence went to Sierra Harkema and Paige Vilneff, both of whom also won the Tom Tompkins Award for Academic Excellence. Makenna Jennings and Sierra Harkema were presented with the Mr. and Mrs. G. Bennett Award for Citizenship, while Cameron Hamilton won the Community Spirit award. Retired MSS teachers, Mike and Lori Thorne were on hand to present their Laugh Out Loud Award to Cassandra Hewitt, with the Nelly Scranton CARE Award being presented to Caine Arnold by Scranton’s nephew, Alex Broek. An Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario award, for

Student Voice and Social Justice went to Noelle Hoekstra. A special Recognition Award, was presented to, not a student, but teacher Dianne Sedore McCoy, who will not be returning to the school next year as she was elected to a full-time two-year term at the Hastings and Prince Edward Elementary Teachers’ Federation union office in Belleville. Valedictorian Makenna Jennings then addressed the crowd, praising the teachers who had supported the graduating class throughout the school year, and saying, “When many of us will be taking different paths as we head off to high school, I know that we will cherish those many memories that we have made at Marmora Senior.” She spoke of the challenges awaiting them all at the high school level, concluding, “But I know I’m going to miss this school and I’ve had some of the greatest teachers throughout my four years here and a very kind principal, and I’m sure

they wish the best for us as we make our journey through high school.” The ceremony concluded with what has become a tradition known as the clap out when all the guests formed

a double line, clapped their hands and called out congratulations as the students made their way to a waiting bus and a trip to Bunker’s Hideaway for dinner and a dance.

Library programs promise new frontiers EMC News - Stirling Children attending summer programs at the Stirling-Rawdon Public Library will have a chance to “Explore Near and Far” through a series of activities and discoveries, says Children’s Librarian Jaye Bannon. “There’s lots going on and lots to learn,” she says, noting some programs require preregistration while others are drop-in events. One highly anticipated visit, she says, is a scheduled appearance by race car driver Caley Weese later in August requiring no registration and is open to the public. Programs offered on Tuesdays through the sum-

mer, including Where in the world?, birdhouse construction and basic first aid, require registration and have different age restrictions while regular Wednesday story time and craft sessions from 10:30 to 11:30 are open to children of all ages.

Teenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s love of art leads to pottery creations By Richard Turtle

EMC News - Stirling - Annie Nicholas has learned a lot by doing and her education so far, she says, has been a very well rounded one. And while she is younger than most serious potters, Nicholas has a keen eye for esthetics and a curiosity and fearlessness many would envy. And that curiosity and resulting self-expression have come naturally and been warmly encouraged all her life, she says. The homeschooled teen recently completed her ďŹ rst year of high school online but says her interest in art has guided much of her learning to date and her plan is to stay the course. Still years away, and following completion of her high school requirements, Nicholas hopes to enter a ďŹ ne arts program at the post-secondary level. A member of an artistic family, Nicholas has always had a strong appreciation for music, painting, poetry and most recently pottery, and each, she explains, has encouraged her to further explore her own creative limits. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just do whatever I think,â&#x20AC;? she says of making art in any form, noting many projects develop in the process. Music in the background, she adds, can help shape a piece in progress or set a slightly different tone. But pottery can be a particularly expressive medium. Working with the material, whether on a wheel or free form, is only part of a process that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t end until after the work has taken a lot of heat. And the difference between success and failure can be measured in degrees while the kiln is sealed. So there has been plenty of trial and error in the learning process as well, she admits. But she has continued undaunted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been interested in art for as long as I can remember,â&#x20AC;? Nicholas notes, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and for the past few years have been taking pottery classes through Loyalist College.â&#x20AC;? Admittedly, she says, it has turned into something of a passion. That interest has also developed into Annie Bea Creations, her own label to help market her more functional work locally. With pieces already on the shelves and available for sale at nearby West Wings on West Front Street, Nicholas also has a display of pottery and painting at the Stirling-Rawdon Public Library this month. And she hopes the exposure provides more creative inspiration. Further information about any of her work is available by emailing <anniebeacreations@gmail.com> or by following her on Facebook. Annie Nicholas has been experimenting with pottery and is now marketing her work under the Annie Bea Creations label. Some samples are on display at the Stirling-Rawdon Public Library.

Gemologist Morsink has a new best friend

EMC News - Stirling - Diamonds. They are the hardest substance on the planet, have been revered and treasured for centuries and today commonly represent the promise of marriage. But gemologist and diamond expert Kees Morsink says for a major purchase that is often made only once in a lifetime, diamond buyers are woefully unaware of the facts about one of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most recognizable rocks.

Gemologist Kees Morsink has a lifelong interest in rocks of all descriptions but admits his favourites are some of the smallest. Morsink recently ventured into the world of diamond sales.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love these things,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want to sell diamonds.â&#x20AC;? Morsink canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hide his enthusiasm, whether describing different cuts, the refraction and reďŹ&#x201A;ection of light or the simple fact that nothing is harder than a diamond. And while Morsink is keen to sell, he says, there is a lot for a buyer to know. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the fun part,â&#x20AC;? he says. In the diamond business, he explains, relationships are built on trust. But in most cases by the time the ring reaches the consumer, there have been multiple parties involved in the transaction. Even today, Morsink says, Canadian diamonds are shipped to Europe for grading before being returned to their place of origin to be sold on the open market. But, he adds, because of their growing global popularity, it is only a matter of time before grading facilities will be available in Canada. But the Canadian stamp also carries a premium and Morsink, who also sells international non-conďŹ&#x201A;ict diamonds,

says the decision is really up to the buyer. But because he can buy direct from manufacturers and cutters both here and overseas, eliminating steps in between, Morsink promises savings of 30 per cent. And an education to go along with it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll tell you everything you want to know,â&#x20AC;? he says of the precious stones, â&#x20AC;&#x153;whether you want them for jewellery or as an investment.â&#x20AC;? Truly valuable diamonds, Morsink says, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t belong on necklaces and rings anyway. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They go in a safety deposit box.â&#x20AC;? But to the naked eye, he adds, a tenfold difference in value can be difďŹ cult to spot. And when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in the market for diamonds, â&#x20AC;&#x153;itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to know what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re getting,â&#x20AC;? he says. Always available to answer questions about rocks of all descriptions, Morsink can be reached at 613-395-4079. More information is available on the Internet at <kingofgems.ca>.


The 39 Steps coming to SFT for two-week run

By Richard Turtle

EMC Entertainment - Stirling - It is billed as Hitchcock meets hilarious and featured actor Debbie Collins says The 39 Steps is getting rave reviews in Orillia, where it is currently playing. The show comes to Stirling in the middle of the month, with Stirling Festival Theatre regular Collins an integral and multi-faceted part of the four-member cast, on July 17 for a

13-show run ending July 27. And in this offering, rather than clinging to cliffhangers she takes on a variety of roles and has the opportunity instead to land plenty of punch lines. Tickets are still available for both matinee and evening shows throughout the run. Also featuring actors Mark Harappa, Marlene Handrahan and Scott Hurst, the hilarious and Pythonesque mystery is â&#x20AC;&#x153;going great,â&#x20AC;? says an enthusiastic

Collins. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People are loving this show.â&#x20AC;? It offers a highly comedic escape for theatregoers, she says, and the audiences have been very receptive. And as an actor, she admits, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard sometimes not to crack up. While not at work making adults laugh this summer, Collins is also heading up Crazy Pants Theatre Company in her hometown of Beeton, Ontario, but is looking forward to her

return to the Stirling stage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People are jumping to their feet every night,â&#x20AC;? she says, adding she is certain of a similar response in Stirling. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What can I say? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a hilarious cast,â&#x20AC;? she notes before admitting to having perhaps too good a time. This adaptation of the suspense thriller is far more a comedic affair, she says, and audiences have been thoroughly enjoying the ride.

Waterway Association heralds Canada Day By Judy Backus

EMC News - Marmora - Originally scheduled for June 29, but postponed until the following evening owing to the threat of poor weather, Crowe Lake Waterway Associationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seventh annual parade of decorated boats, which was followed by a spectacular display of fireworks, provided fun for both participants and spectators. The parade, which began

Tickets are still available for all shows in Stirling, says SFT Media Coordinator Joanne Hartman, adding the buzz from the current run offers reason for optimism. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to get the word out,â&#x20AC;? she says of the quality of the show and the audience response, before the show opens in Stirling in two weeks. Tickets are priced at $29 each and are available at the box office or by calling 613-395-2100.

at the Blairton Bay lighthouse then circumnavigated the lake, featured nearly 40 boats festooned with strings of lights and colourful props. Lively music blasted from many of the vessels, while passengers waved and called out â&#x20AC;&#x153;Happy Canada Dayâ&#x20AC;? to the hundreds who viewed the procession from their docks. As seagulls wheeled overhead against a backdrop of the darkening sky, one person

made a comment no doubt echoed by many, saying, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great to be a Canadian and great to live on Crowe Lake!â&#x20AC;? Once it was dark, the fireworks began. Reflected in the calm waters of the lake, the dazzling, colourful and sometimes unusual pyrotechnics illuminated the surroundings with swirls, spheres and flashes of brilliant light.

EMC News - Quinte West - Local weight lifter Rich Machell is pulling his own weight when it comes to ďŹ ghting cancer. In fact, he is pulling much more than his own weight, by competing in world championships to raise funds for the oncology department at Belleville General Hospital. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My father-in-law is battling brain cancer and lung cancer,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He is an example of how strong you can be.â&#x20AC;? Rich is partnering with the oncology department for the fund-raising campaign which ofďŹ cially starts this fall, helping support new procedures, specialized equipment and a new doctor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m kicking off my end of the fund raising today,â&#x20AC;? he said, tied to a 21,000-pound truck loaded with 72,000 pounds of paper from Norampac. He gave it a few tries but couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t budge the total 100,000 pounds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t supposed to have it loaded,â&#x20AC;? he said to his friend Terry McInnes, owner of Titanium Company which hauls scrap paper. McInnes was there with his son Tyler for a truck pulling â&#x20AC;&#x153;photo opâ&#x20AC;? for the kickoff. McInnes is a sponsor for Rich and shares the same concerns of family and friends with cancer. Quinte West OPP Constable Ed Jouwstra and an unknown accomplice also showed up for the kickoff. They tied the rope to the cruiser so Rich wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t slip when he tried the big pull. Jouwstra is also a supporter of Richâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s efforts for oncology. He runs Cross Fit Training in Belleville, where Rich sometimes works out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of my fans,â&#x20AC;? Rich said with a smile. Rich is practising for a World Natural Strongman Federation competition in Maryland on July 27 where he will join Team Canada against Team USA. The federation is called â&#x20AC;&#x153;naturalâ&#x20AC;? because it does not allow any drugs at all in the competitors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They do random testing all the time,â&#x20AC;? Rich says. Rich says he has never included drugs or steroids of any kind in his weight lifting. He has been training since he was 14. He is now 30. He has been competing in strongman competitions for the past eight years, including several in the Quinte area.

and former St. Louis Blues captain Rick Meagher in 1988 as the Rick Meagher Charity Golf Classic, the tournament has grown over the years to become a staple of Quinte summertime events. Meagher took a step back in 2009, handing the reins over to Medigas, and Sullivan said the tournament continues to grow as the years go by. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a fun event, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great community event, it brings people from all across Ontario,â&#x20AC;? Sullivan said. While the Classic doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t set a particular fund-raising goal for each event, they recently eclipsed the $2-million mark in total funds raised. The growth of the tournament has also allowed the organizers to broaden the scope of people who receive funds from the event, as initially the tournament had a focus of helping children with special needs in the Quinte region. Today, six â&#x20AC;&#x153;Driving Dreams for Youthâ&#x20AC;? scholarships of $5,000 awarded to students from area high schools entering the health care ďŹ eld each year are just one example of how the funds raised directly beneďŹ t the local community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our goal, and our hope is that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to give them a hand up,â&#x20AC;? Sullivan said. Other projects of note completed with funds raised from the tournament include a playground at Zwicks Park, the pirate ship at West Riverside Park and the Tom Gavey Pavilion. Other charitable recipients include Belleville Dialysis, Hospice Quinte, Belleville YMCA and the BGH Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Treatment Centre, among others. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think the community sees the work that we do,â&#x20AC;? Sullivan said, when asked why she thought the tournament had such longevity. This year, the star-studded lineup of celebrity golfers taking to the course on Saturday, July 13, include Eric Tangradi, PK Subban, Andrew Shaw, Dale Hawerchuk, Billy Smith, Matt Belesky, Elizabeth Manley, Brian Price, Wayne Cashman, Matthew Barnaby, Rob Ray and more. The event is sold out this year, but spectators are more than welcome to take in the dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s event. For more information, visit their web site at <www.celebrityclassic.ca>.

Lawn Bowling Club hosts Mixed Pairs playdowns By Sue Dickens

EMC Sports - Campbellford - Competing for the opportunity to bowl at the provincials, two teams came face to face at a day-long competition hosted by the Campbellford Lawn Bowling Club last Saturday. Local lawn bowlers Harold Douglas and Sylvia Poulain, both seasoned players and no strangers to this level of competition, bowled against Donna and Doug McLeese from the Belleville Lawn Bowling Club as Campbellford hosted the District 15 Mixed Pairs Playdown. At the end of the day it was the McLeeses who won the opportunity to compete in the Ontario Mixed Pairs Championship being held in Nepean on August 10 and 11. “It was a long, intense day for the players,” said Joan Brown, a member of the Campbellford club who is looking after public relations this year. Game #1 was won by the McLeeses with a high spread in the score. Then game #2 was a direct turn around. The Poulain-Douglas team won with a significant spread in the score, she said. The third and deciding game finished at 7 p.m. and the McLeese team won with a score of 15 - 13. The playdowns started at 9 a.m. To win the McLeese team had to take two of the three 16-end games. “These four players have a considerable amount of championship experience,” said Brown. The McLeese team was the District 15 winner in this same event in 2012. In 2011, Poulain was one of the members of the The skips shake hands as they begin the day-long competition for the District 15 Mixed Pairs Playdown hosted by the Campbellford Lawn Bowling Club: from left, Harold Douglas and Sylvia Poulain of Campbellford; Doug and Donna McLeese of Belleville. team that won Ontario Gold in Mixed Pairs and then went on to compete at the Canadian Championship The McLeese team won the day with a winning score of 15 - 13.

which was held in Winnipeg that year. Douglas skipped the team that won the District 15 Mixed Pairs Playdown in 2010. He has been a member of the club for the past 15 years. He decided to become a lawn bowler because, “It’s a good game; you get good exercise and make a lot of friends.” He’s competed at the provincials three times. Douglas said he would like to see younger bowlers get involved with the Campbellford club. “It’s for all ages, the younger the better. If you start young you’ll become a good bowler down the road,” he told the Trent Hills Independent. Douglas likes to curl and has played and coached hockey and softball. His secret to success he said is, “Practise, practise, practise.” For Poulain, it was her husband Ron who started lawn bowling first. “I came here the next year to try it. I liked the competition, I liked the socializing,” she said. She also likes to curl and competes in shuffleboard and carpet bowling every winter. “It keeps you young,” she added. For the McLeeses, it’s all about the competition. They began lawn bowling about six years ago and have been on a roll ever since. “I’ve been to 11 provincial finals,” noted Donna McLeese. In fact, she brought home a bronze medal from the Ontario Fours Championship competition held this June. “Both of us are very competitive people,” she said.

Equine Centre can help with PTSD, autism treatment By Ross Lees

EMC News - Hillier - Members of the military from 8 Wing/CFB Trenton and their families may not have far to travel any more if their autistic children need treatment, or adults with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), anxiety or depression want help. The HEAL Equine Centre in Hillier, Prince Edward County, continues to improve its qualifications for the treatment of these and other disorders, including holding a two-day training course Tuesday and Wednesday from world-renowned Horse Boy founder Rupert Isaacson. The HEAL farm was the training centre for practitioners learning the Horse Boy techniques from Isaacson and Lliane Lorenz, both from the Texas headquarters of the Horse Boy Camp. Isaacson works internationally teach-

ing his Horse Boy method at camps and centres in North America and Europe. In 2010, the Autistic Society of America awarded Isaacson the Autism Award for his significant contribution to improving the lives of all who are affected by autism. The HEAL farm, owned and operated by Suzanne Latchford-Kulker, sprang from her love of horses, nature and helping others. Fascinated by horses since she was eight years old, she has been involved with horses off and on in Canada, Italy and Germany for most of her life, except for a ten-year absence beginning in her mid-20s. Seven years ago, in 2009, she purchased the 35-acre property in Hillier and the day they took possession of the farm, their first horse “showed up.” “All of our horses came from various backgrounds and needed homes,”

she said. “Instead of buying a horse, they’ve all come from people who couldn’t care for them anymore or were too old.” As the principal training tool at HEAL farm, Latchford-Kulker pays attention to the horses she acquires. She now has seven. “They are definitely horses that like people and like to interact and have a bit of character,” she states. “It’s very important that our horses live as a herd and they live as close to their natural instincts as possible. They’re outside 24/7, they’re not put in a stall at a certain time every day and they’re healthy, hearty horses. They all have their pecking order and herd dynamic which can teach people a lot, as well, because horses are always authentic. They’re always in the moment.” “Meaning they’re jolly rude,” Isaac-

son interjects, chuckling. “They don’t know how to live any other way and they are prey animals, so they’re very, very in tune to what’s going on around them at all times because that’s how they survive, right?” notes Latchford-Kulker. “That makes them very good at judging people, so you can’t hide anything from them. They know what you’re feeling before you do.” It is that very awareness that pulled Latchford-Kulker back to horses and led her to certification in Facilitated Equine Experiential Learning, a healing process grounded in helping people through a partnership with horses to better deal with emotions or behavioural patterns they’d like to change. HEAL farm runs two-day workshops where people come and connect with the horses.

According to Latchford-Kulker, the people would start opening parts of themselves to the horses they didn’t know were there or they would start to listen to “their authentic voice rather than their analytical thinking mind. My job as a facilitator is to help them come out of their analytical thinking mind and go into their body and access their truth.” This is a very transformational process, according to Latchford-Kulker. One of the first things she does with her clients is have them meet the herd. “I take them through grounding, meditation and breathing and I say pick up anything from each horse—it doesn’t matter what it is—then we’ll go through each horse and we’ll talk about it. Sometimes they pick up something about themselves that they’re getting from the horse, thus bringing it into the discussion.” Often what they initially pick up from the horse is something basic, like it’s the youngest, or this horse seems nervous, or this is the head horse and they relate it to themselves in the end, she indicates. “There are lots of reflective, quiet moments,” she notes. “They get ‘Aha’ moments and there’s journaling, as well. They do an activity and then they go away and they sit at the pond and write about their experience which gives it more meaning, more value for that person, and it’s theirs, it’s nobody else’s but theirs.” She says the process is very much an educational process and a great partnership between the horse and the person. Horses are revered for their opinion, she says, garnering another response from Isaacson. “It was a saying in medieval times the horse was the only living being that would tell the king the truth, because the horse would dump your ass in front of your subjects just like that,” he laughs. “And lots of kings were killed in falls from horses,” he said as a result of their authentic voices, the one true voice coming through. Latchford-Kulker recalls a workshop she ran one time with four military members, a workshop sponsored by Soldier On. Because teaching can include many forms of spiritualism, meditation and shamanism, workshops are often tailored to the people involved. That particular workshop she recalls using smudging and mandalas. Please see “Issues” on page B2


Splash pad concert series Issues addressed kicks off strongly despite weather Continued from page B1

“I had them draw how they were feeling first and at the end of the day, they drew another mandala and we compared the two. It showed them ‘this is where I was and this is where I am.’” It is this workshop which directed Latchford-Kulker to the Horse Boy method of teaching.

The popular Donegal Fiddlers Orchestra kicked off the Norwood Lions Tuesday night concert series at the Asphodel-Norwood Community Centre. Inclement weather forced the show inside but that didn’t stop a large crowd from enjoying an outstanding show with generous donations toward the Norwood Lions splash pad campaign.

After that one course, Soldier On would not fund more workshops because the equine facilitated learning had no riding in it and Soldier On’s mandate includes recreation, sports and healthy living. “Our method addresses those issues,” Isaacson noted.

EMC News - Norwood - Good music and an enthusiastic crowd trumped bad weather at the Norwood Lions kickoff splash pad fund-raising concert. The popular Donegal Fiddlers Orchestra made the arena floor feel like home after organizers quickly shifted the concert indoors as thunder clouds loomed and rain arrived at show time. A large crowd was on hand to enjoy the orchestra’s fiddling excellence and the barbeque put on by the host Lions. Money raised through donations at the shows will go toward the Lions’ splash pad campaign. The Norwood Lions are spearheading fund raising for the facility which is estimated to cost $300,000. The Lions hope to raise $75,000 by the end of the summer; they’ve already garnered approximately $68,000.

“If the generosity of the patrons is any indication of the future, the concerts will yield all that was expected and more,” says Lions member and splash pad committee member Ron Scott. Scott did double duty as a member of the Donegal Fiddlers and the Lions Club. Scott and the Lions were surprised by the number of people who showed up early for the barbeque and the crowd swelled as show time approached. Spectators were “very generous” with their donations during the intermission, he said. “The arena turned out to be a very satisfactory rain venue for the event and once again proved that the acoustics, mentioned before by various musical groups, are of very high standards in this state-of-the-art facility.” It was a very busy night at the

community centre with the Norwood District Public School Grade 8 graduation filling the Millennium Room and mite softball drawing fans to J.J. Stewart Field. The Tuesday night series aims to use the outdoor picnic shelter as its stage with spectators opening up their lawn chairs on the well-maintained grounds surrounding the venue. “It’s reassuring to know that this alternative is close at hand,” says Scott. The July 2 concert featured the blues and rock band Candy Mountain. July 9 will be a special family entertainment featuring Tim Holland (aka Tim the Puppet Tamer), Peterborough singer, clown and entertainer Dan Fewings and the one-of-a-kind Kitchen Kuties. There will also be face-painting provided by local esthetician Janet Banks. On July 16 the contemporary and country trio Western Avenue will perform giving a preview of what fans can expect at the Havelock Country Jamboree. Peterborough alternative rock band

Westben celebrates the arrival of new star attraction

EMC Entertainment - Campbellford The performances were exceptional at Westben’s Piano Concerto Gala Weekend, featuring the talents of some of this country’s most accomplished musicians, but the biggest star of them weighs over 900 pounds—and has three legs. The newly acquired Steinway Concert Grand Piano made its debut Saturday afternoon, June 29, with a program that included Canada’s premiere pianist Robert Silverman playing Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 5. The first half of the program showcased Westben’s own co-founders,

pianist Brian Finley (who played Beethoven’s Fantasia in C minor for piano) and soprano Donna Bennett, along with a 40-piece orchestra and the Westben Festival Chorus, with six of its members performing solo. “It’s a powerful elegant instrument … just made for full concert wear,” Finley said at rehearsal Saturday morning. “A piano is like a companion, the more interesting the companion, the deeper the conversation … It becomes a dialogue with your instrument.” Steinways, he said, “are real conversationalists.” It cost $65,000 to purchase the 40year-old piano with the help of a $40,000

Celebrate Canada grant. Westben Arts Festival Theatres, Inc. has raised about $10,000 thus far of the balance by means of a keynote campaign in which people who give $300 get their name put on one note, while a donation of $500 is good for two. Bennett, Westben’s director of marketing, said pianists had started saying it was time for Westben to replace the Heintzman it had been using that was more than 85 years old. “The other piano was good, too, but this is like a whole new step up,” she said. Conductor Dan Warren said the new piano “makes a big difference,” not only in the audience’s enjoyment of the music, but also for the performers. “To have a piano of this quality to play just brings out the best of them,” he said. “It’s just so easy and natural to play, the sound is really beautiful,” said Lisa Tahara, who took to the stage for Sunday’s concert. She performed The new sign marking progress in Westben’s campaign to raise $25,000 was Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 put on display Saturday, to mark the arrival of a Steinway Concert Grand Piain C minor, after pianist Leonard Gilbert no that was purchased for $65,000, director of marketing Donna Bennett said. opened the program with music by both Photo: John Campbell Chopin and Schumann. Her first time at The Barn, she said the “venue is just amazing, it’s truly one of a kind.” Warren said it “is an amazing place … [and] the driving force behind it is really the love of music. Both Brian and Donna give so much of themselves for the art form.” The orchestra drew most of its members from the Toronto and Kitchener-Waterloo symphonies, the Canadian Opera Company and the National Ballet Orchestra. The musicians love Westben and ask at the start of every year if there will be an opportunity to play there, Warren said. “It’s wonderful.” Beginning Thursday night, July 4, with a preview and continuing until Sunday afternoon, The UBC Opera Ensemble will stage its production of Carmen, and they will be joined by members of the Westben youth and teen choruses.

Giant Hog Weed spotted in the area

EMC News - Regional - It has been referred to as “the blistering, blinding, potentially lethal weed from hell.” Giant hogweed, (Heracleum mantegazzianum) an invasive plant sighted in eastern Ontario in the past few years seems to be making a home for itself in the Tweed area. A resident who spotted one giant hog weed plant last year on the Flinton Road was shocked to find about a dozen of them this year along the same road. Giant hog weed, originally imported as an ornamental plant, is extremely dangerous, more so than any other plant growing in this area. The sap from broken stems and leaves can cause blindness if even a tiny drop on the hand is transferred to the eye. The sap on exposed skin, after exposure to sunlight, produces painful blisters which often leave scars which persist for years. So potent is the chemical agent in the hog weed sap, that if open wounds are contacted, it can have systemic effects through the whole body, including death. Allan Broek, Public Works

Supervisor for the Municipality of Tweed, has observed the plant north of Highway 7 and will be bringing the matter to the attention of the appropriate committee. He says his department’s attention has been mainly focused on the problems of the wild parsnip which is also becoming more prevalent in the area. Contact with wild parsnip can also result in rashes and skin eruptions, but only at certain stages of its development and not with the severe dangers presented by giant hogweed. Mr. Broek has developed a training manual for staff working outdoors who are likely to come into proximity with giant hog weed and wild parsnip, but so far the emphasis has been on the latter. He says that municipal staff people do not have the mandate or training to undertake an eradication program at this point. Until very recently, he has received no complaints or reports about giant hogweed. John Apsley, Noxious Weed Inspector for Hastings County, says he has not had extensive experience working with the plant, and has had only a few sightings and complaints.

According to the rules of the Ministry of Agriculture and Food, he says, landowners are responsible for dealing with giant hog weed if it occurs on their own property. Dealing with the weed is no simple matter. If attacked with weed trimmers or bush cutters, the toxic sap would be sprayed around the workers. One method of control involves cutting of the flower tops before the plant can reseed and then drenching the remainder of the plant with herbicide such as Round Up. Municipal staff people in Tweed are not licensed currently to apply these herbicides. Eradication of giant hogweed is a challenging proposition. Each plant may produce from 20,000 to 100,000 seeds which are carried by wind and water and can remain viable for up to 15 years in the soil. However, locating and identifying the plants and educating people about them might avoid tragic incidents of contact with giant hogweed, especially among children, who may be particularly vulnerable. It is disturbing to contemplate the consequences of allowing these plants to spread unchecked.

Warm weather draws out flies, mosquitoes and thieves EMC News - Campbellford - The weather might be nice but there are lots of people around who aren’t, and they’re up to their old tricks—breaking into homes. Northumberland OPP report officers have investigated a number of break-and-enters over the past week, some of which took place during the daytime. Police remind people that, even though the weather has been very warm at times of late, they should always lock their windows, as well as doors, when they leave their home. The OPP also suggest that residents who spot suspicious vehicles or persons who appear out of place to call 911 or 1-888-310-1122 and provide descriptions of the people, vehicles and licence plates. Their actions could prevent the commission of a crime or help to solve one. The OPP web site, <www.opp.ca>, offers a number of useful resources, tips and links about improving personal safety. “Please do your part and ‘target harden’ what is yours so that it will still be there when you return,” the OPP said in a news release. Any anonymous information about a crime can be reported to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS). EMC Section B - Thursday, July 4, 2013 B3

Garden Bugs, The Big 3

The Good Earth:

Dan Clost EMC Lifestyles - Earwigs Earwigs are ugly little things; brown, flat, an inch long with pincers on their bottom ends. There is a myth that they like to crawl into peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ears. We seem predisposed to kill them without a second thoughtâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;other than a full-body shudder coinciding with the crunch.

Reality Check: EMC Lifestyles - I was six and a-half years old when I first rode on a plane by myself. My father was in Boston and it was time for my once-a-year, one-weeklong summer visit. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t remember much about that first short flight, but a few years later he moved to Vancouver. Since I lived in Toronto, that trip lasted four and a-half hours each way. I quickly learned that if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re flying as an unaccompanied minor, and you sniffle and cry a little, stewardesses give you cookies. And not the oatmeal raisin kind, the chocolate chip kind. I cried a lot. The rules have changed now, and you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t put kids on a plane by themselves anymore. That will likely make those once-a-year, week-long summer visits with â&#x20AC;&#x153;the other parentâ&#x20AC;? more difficult, and perhaps even less frequent. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not entirely sure thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a bad thing. Looking back on my early summers those visits were always odd. I felt more

Earwigs are rather benign critters; and while they can cause damage to plants, those plants are usually in a very clean garden with little debris. Earwigs prefer to chow down on dead stuff, either animal or vegetable. In the heat or light of the day, they like to hide in cool, damp places such as inside a peony flower or a tomato, especially one with an entry hole made by a slug. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the best thing about earwigs: they eat aphids. Garden snails Garden snails, especially the ones with the yellow and black stripes, aka banded snail, have shown up on our piece of this good earth in unprecedented numbers this year. They were rare enough at one time that our girls were quite excited to see Mrs. Snail. Now, I can walk by the hostas under the lilacs and see a dozen or so perched happily on their own salad plate.

Garden slugs Garden slugs, snails without homes. There are many, many different critters called â&#x20AC;&#x153;slugs,â&#x20AC;? most of them are small. I have seen, in tropical plants shipped to the greenhouse, slugs that are almost four inches long with a delightfully repulsive look about them. Generally, slugs are not good news as they can cause quite a bit of damage. Practically speaking, there is very little difference between a snail and a slug when it comes to chowing down on plants. Snails are easier to findâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t squish themselves into small cracks like a slug can. How do you know what is making the big holes in your favourite plantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leaves? Look for a slimy trail. No trail = earwig. All three are nocturnal unless itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a dark, cloudy day; the best way to know which of three you have is to go out after dark with a flashlight and catch them in the act.

litter and mulch to deny daytime hiding places; you can introduce frogs, starlings and garter snakes. You can sprinkle diatomaceous earth or wood ashes. Or you can accept the fact that they are a part of the environment and share the planet with them. I prefer to invite them in for a beer. Digression - A tip of the hat to the second generation Rinaldiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. I am a car racing fan. Recently, the folks out at Brighton Speedway brought in a touring late model series (the big boys of dirt) to entertain us. The upfront money was high and the ticket prices were much higher than usual. The stands were packed, the racing was fantastic and our local drivers who survived the qualifying heats were not out of place in the main race. I hope it was profitable for the promoters. It is good to see a small business take a considerable gamble and pull it off.

The summertime custody split awkward than a Quebec separatist at the Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s garden party. You didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t belong, and you spent your life trying to figure out small talk. Sure, we did some lovely sightseeing, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m very grateful for my fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wife who made such great efforts to include me, but it was still not right. Perhaps because I never lived with my father I never bonded with him. And one week a year canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t accomplish that. If your ex is raising your child (or children), donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fool yourself into thinking you can be a parent only on holidays. Move closer to your children and be involved in their lives. Yet Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not sure the opposite custody arrangement, where the children see both parents equally, is that easy either. The problem with joint custody is that no adults know the childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s whole life.

In a kidâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mind, Mom knows everything that happened to me on Week 1, and Dad knows everything that happened on Week 2, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m the only one who knows what happened in both. And because each home has different rules and different ways of relating, the child has to almost split in two. And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just that; they spend their lives in flux, always moving from house to house and living out of suitcases or hockey bags rather than out of closets and drawers. We would never live like that, yet we ask hundreds of thousands of Canadian children to every day. Custody arrangements are always built around the parentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; best interests. As a society, we may give lip service to it, but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not really interested in the childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best interests, or we wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t

do things like this to them. I can think of several friends who divorced their husbands, claiming their husbands were too harsh. The family would be more peaceful and better off without him. Now that harsh, demanding dad gets the kids by himself 50 per cent of the time. Even if he were harsh and demanding, which in these cases the guys really werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, how does splitting up save the kids from this? It only puts them in his house without you there to run interference. Divorce can definitely be in the kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; best interests when there is abuse, or open hostility, or addictions. But these are a minority of divorces. Most of the time we want to make our own lives better, and we rationalize it saying that whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good for us is whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good for them. Yet we would never live the way

Sheila Wray Gregoire we ask so many children to. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in a difficult place in your relationship, I just ask that you picture your childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s future summers if you break up. Kids always bear the brunt of adult decisions. We owe it to them to put aside our own issues and put the kids first.

Hoarding coalition devising action plan to reduce risks posed by extreme clutter By John Campbell

Generally, the big three are not that much of a problem unless you begin to notice it. Sort of like ants in your lawn. Short grass or long grass doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make any difference as to the number of ants your sward contains; the former just means you can see more of them. So, back to the pests of the day: if they are not causing you distress, just leave them be. (An exception can be made: pear slugs on purple leaf sandcherries.) You will never kill them all but you can manage them somewhat. In the case of slugs and snails, you can always turn the tables and eat them, but cook well because they can be vectors of parasites that will cause you internal stress. You can squish them; you can set up little tubs of beer with a squirt of dish detergent. For earwigs you can roll up some damp newspapers; in the morning squeeze the ends closed, walk out into the street and unroll. You can remove

EMC News - Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clutter and then thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hoarding so extreme it can put your own health at risk, and jeopardize the well-being of others, if left unchecked. The scope of the problem was outlined in a presentation public health inspectors Carol Chan and Sami El-Hajjeh made recently to the board of the Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge District Health Unit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People who hoard are usually socially isolated [and] live in unsafe housing conditions,â&#x20AC;? Chan said. Their overwhelming accumulation of goods creates multiple household hazards that increase the risk of fire, structural collapse, falls, infestations, and respiratory infections. Hoarding, according to the Mayo Clinic in the United States, is â&#x20AC;&#x153;the excessive collection of items, along with the inability to discard them,â&#x20AC;? often resulting in â&#x20AC;&#x153;such cramped living conditions that homes may be filled to capacity, with only narrow pathways winding through stacks of clutter. Some people also collected animals, keeping dozens or hundreds of pets often in unsanitary conditions.â&#x20AC;? Hoarding may be a symptom of obsessivecompulsive disorder but the people who act this way donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see their behaviour as a problem, which makes â&#x20AC;&#x153;treatment very challenging,â&#x20AC;? Chan said. The reality show, Hoarders, â&#x20AC;&#x153;doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t reflect real lifeâ&#x20AC;? because â&#x20AC;&#x153;thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no quick fix,â&#x20AC;? she said. It takes a lot of patience, effort and the involvement

of professionals â&#x20AC;&#x153;to help them to understand their compulsion, so they can live a safer and more enjoyable life.â&#x20AC;? Chan said hoarding also poses a danger to neighbours, and makes it difficult for firefighters, police and EMS personnel to do their jobs when responding to an emergency in the household. Over the years there have been reports of people dying after their huge collections caught on fire and they were unable to escape. El-Hajjeh said a multidisciplinary approach works best to address the issue, which agencies in Northumberland County have done by forming a coalition last summer. The group is currently working on an action plan that will define their role and responsibilities in helping individuals receive treatment. He cited various factors why the problem will worsen in future, including an aging population and easy online access to the purchase of products that are then delivered to the home. Chan said hoarding occurs in â&#x20AC;&#x153;any age groupâ&#x20AC;? but â&#x20AC;&#x153;it gets worseâ&#x20AC;? as a person ages.

TRAVEL

Exploring Vancouver Island’s Pacific Rim National Park Reserve EMC Lifestyles - Pacific Rim National Park Reserve is made up of three separate regions: Long Beach, the Broken Group Islands, and the West Coast Trail; the entire park encompasses 511 square kilometres of land and ocean along the southwest corner of Vancouver Island. This awesome park is primarily renowned for its lush rainforests and rugged coastline, and it’s definitely worth a visit. I spent my time in the most accessible and popular region of this park reserve, Long Beach. It’s the coastal area located between the villages of Ucluelet and Tofino, and it has the most extensive sand dune/beach area found on all of Vancouver Island. I

low tide can’t be completed at high tide. Furthermore, since this area is considered to be “Canada’s surfing capital,” a lot of surfers congregate along here at particular times of the day, depending on the tides/waves. I learned that they, too, must be cautious, for there are dangerous rip currents (powerful currents of water moving away from the shore) and the water temperature remains quite cold yearround, so there are worries about undertows and hypothermia for surfers and swimmers. The Long Beach unit of Pacific Rim National Park Reserve is located within the traditional territories of the Ucluelet and Tia-o-qui-aht First Nations, and the park is termed a “reserve” because of

A combination of driftwood and mist in Pacific Rim National Park Reserve.

explored much of this land between the tides (the seashore), and I discovered that there are generally two low and high tides each day, so activities had to be planned accordingly. For example, some of the wide, sandy beaches at low tide disappear at high tide, so visitors don’t want to be caught out there at the wrong time (warning signs are posted), and certain hiking trails, such as Combers Beach Trail and Schooner Cove Trail, that are accessible at

pending treaty settlements. More of the natural and cultural history of the area can be found by visiting the Pacific Rim Visitor Centre at the Tofino-Ucluelet junction on Highway #4 and the Kwisitis Visitor Centre located at the end of Wick Road, 3.5 kilometres from the highway. Green Point Campground, the only campground located in this section of the park reserve, is located on a forested terrace above the beach; it has 112 walkin and drive-in campsites.

While I was in this Long Beach section, I explored several excellent hiking trails, including Radar Hill, where a short, steep path leads to a panoramic view of the ocean, inlets, rainforest, and mountains; Shoreline Bog, where a wide boardwalk traverses an area of acidic soil that stunts the growth of the aged trees; Combers Beach, which leads to the beach via a steep slope, and from here there’s an opportunity to spot sea lions and nesting birds on nearby Sea Lion Rocks; Schooner Cove, which took me to the cove/beach, via long flights of wooden stairs, and then offered me a glimpse of the distant village of Esowista; and the Rainforest Trail, which also included long flights of stairs—and tree boughs thickly draped with hanging moss. However, before going on any of these trails, you should check about tides and trail conditions. As I previously stated, some of the trails are not accessible at high tide, and I also discovered that some may be closed for other reasons, too. For example, when I visited the park reserve, two of the trails were “off limits” because of “high bear activity.” After all, there’s a lot of wildlife in Pacific Rim National Park Reserve. According to posted signs, I was in “black bear, wolf, and cougar country.” Yet another section of this park reserve, the Broken Group Islands, is made up of more than 100 small islands and islets in Barkley Sound. Visitors here will find a stunning maze of channels, densely forested islands, shell beaches, tide pools, exposed islets, sheltered bays, and windswept rocks. This area is accessible only by boat. Therefore, it’s particularly popular with kayakers, and they’ll find a few camping areas scattered throughout the islands. The other region of the park reserve, the West Coast Trail, is now a very popular long-distance (75-kilometre) hiking trail. Once a trade and travel path, then a lifesaving route used to assist in the rescue of shipwrecked sailors, it has now been transformed into a challenging, multi-day adventure trek that takes the experienced backpacker

I found this sign near the park.

along rocky beaches, across rather rugged, rough terrain, past majestic waterfalls and sandstone cliffs, and through lush rainforest. The spectacular setting and magnificent scenery make Pacific Rim National Park Reserve a wonderful tourist destination, and not only is it popular with surfers, birders, naturalists, and wildlife

Are you in the four per cent? Continued from page B4

Christopher Beveridge, the health unit’s director of environmental health, said “enforcement has been the traditional response” to hoarding but “it doesn’t work,” that’s why the coalition was formed, “to solve the problem from a prevention point of view.” Chan said statistics in the United States indicate about four per cent of the population hoard, a proportion she said was likely the case in Canada as well. Christine Herrington said “there are probably people out there who have tried to influence family members to change their patterns of behaviour and it’s probably fallen on deaf ears.” She asked if they should they call the health unit for help, and Chan replied: “Definitely.” The International OCD Foundation Hoarding Center has a Clutter Image Rating Scale that measures the amount of clutter in a kitchen, bedroom or living room with the aid of photographs. People whose accommodations are rated four or higher on a scale of nine are encouraged to get help for their hoarding. The scale can be found at <http://www.ocfoundation.org/hoarding/cir. pdf>.

Apparently storm watching, particularly severe winter storms, are attracting even more tourists to the area!

Cowboys and cowgirls saddle up for Western Weekend

EMC Events - Warkworth The Warkworth Western Weekend returns for its 16th year with the Stars Western Riding Club hosting the popular gaming show on Friday night, featuring local riders.

The Percy Agricultural Society (Warkworth Fair board) and the RAM Rodeo Tour will again feature all the thrills of a real rodeo on July 5, 6 and 7. “The rodeo, started by the Percy Agricultural Society, and run for many years by the

Travellers Hockey Team, has been a centrepiece of the summer in Warkworth. The fair board is excited to continue to host this amazing event,” said Tina Spooner, chair of the committee. “We will be featuring barrels, pole bending, Dash for Cash, key

hole and a stakes barrel class,” said Spooner. “We have a 12 and under pony, youth, and adult divisions,” she added. The cost is $5 to enter each class and the paybacks are: 1st place $25, 2nd place $20, 3rd place $15, 4th place $10 and 5th place $5. Stake class is $10 with $100 added money. “The gaming show is open to all local riders. Registrations start at 5 p.m. on Friday and the show starts at 6 p.m. sharp! The beer gardens and vendors will be open. The Masons are holding a barbeque dinner, This event is free to spectators. “We are already having a lot of entries coming in for Friday night, so people need to preenter to avoid the late fee,” said Spooner. “So come out and have something to eat and a cold beverage and enjoy a fast action evening, from your own local talented horse riders,” said

Spooner, with enthusiasm. She and her committee have been working hard to make this year another successful event. The Ram Rodeo happens on Saturday and Sunday at 2 p.m. On Saturday night there will again be a Country Video Dance Party, a venue popular with rodeo goers. The Junior Farmers will again be running the bar. On Saturday, from 5 until 7 p.m. there will be a southern barbeque cowboy dinner put on by the Ramblin’ Pit featuring smoked beef and pulled pork “with all the fixins.” Ticket prices are $16 for adults and $10 for children. “A limited amount of tickets are being sold so again get yours early,” said Spooner. Advance tickets are available at Warkworth Farm Supply, Newman Oliver & McCarten Insurance in Campbellford and at Greenhawk in Stirling. On Sunday morning an ecumenical service will be held on the fairgrounds at 11 a.m. Everyone is asked to bring their own chair.

The cowboy breakfast rodeo special is from 9 to 11 a.m. Again this year the committee is delegating events to local organizations, hoping to help each group raise money. “We will have lots of new exciting vendors this year too,” said Spooner. The Western Warkworth Weekend committee this year includes: Tina Spooner, chair; Christine Edwards co-chair; and directors Tracy Russell, Sandra Mitchell, Ann-Marie Switzer, Jenna Ward, Mark Switzer, Schelle Holmes, Jake and Cherie Whalen, Greg Torrance, Charlene Wells, Kylie Spooner and Jessica Russell. In the past the Warkworth Ram Rodeo event has raised money for a new score clock and a new sound system in the Warkworth arena and has been used to support local churches, Millennium Park, minor sports, the skateboard park, the Santa Claus parade and more.

SFT preparing Stirling’s story

from our SFT Young Company and also from local drama clubs, dance schools, college theatre programs and church choirs. “Right now we’re looking for details about local stories,” Vanderlip says, and while there are many well-documented events there are others that are equally important. “Family connections and oral histories are critical because they put a human face on it. These are real stories about real people,” he says. “I’ve written a few Canadian historical plays,” says Turtle, “but this is very different.” Those, he says, focused on a person or a small group of people while the Stirling Historical Community Play Project is about a place. “But the good news is, Stirling is a very interesting character.” Working in connection with several local groups, including officials at Farmtown Park, the SFT is hoping to mount a fullscale production in 2015.

EMC Entertainment - Stirling - The Stirling Festival Theatre (SFT) will be bringing a little local history to the stage. SFT Managing Director David Vanderlip recently announced the theatre was successful in its recent grant application for Ontario Arts Council funding to finance the development of the project, culminating with a staged reading next year. “This is great news for us,” Vanderlip says, “because it gives us an opportunity not only to bring the community to the theatre, but also bring theatre to the community.” While still in the research stages, the play will focus on Stirling’s history and its people with the intention of wide-reaching public involvement. A staged reading is scheduled for April 2014 at the theatre. “We have to thank the Ontario Arts Council, an agency of the Government of Ontario for funding support for this project,” he says, noting it is important to both the theatre and the community. “Along with playwright Richard Turtle, we hope to engage the community in the creation of a play around the various significant historical events that have occurred in the Stirling area over the last 400 years,” Vanderlip says. “Champlain travelled these shores around 1615 and this area was regularly travelled as immigrants moved from Lower to Upper Canada.” And there are plenty of other stories to bring us up to the present day. “In addition to professional theatre actors, we intend to utilize actual descendants of the stories and events and engage young and old from the community with an eye to incorporating up to 200 community members in the acting company,” he says. A significant portion of the acting company, he adds, will be comprised of new generation, emerging artists, drawn

Garage to become a gallery for contemporary art By John Campbell

EMC News - Warkworth - A not-forprofit arts organization based in Toronto wants to transform a Main Street garage here into a gallery that showcases contemporary art and includes space for an artistin-residence. To achieve its goal, Sunday Drive Arts Projects has enlisted the help of the Municipality of Trent Hills which has agreed to act as the lead applicant for $150,000 in funding from the Ontario Trillium Foundation and $100,000 from the Canada Cultural Spaces Fund. Applications were to be submitted this week. Most of the money will be used to renovate the Johnston Co. car garage, the balance on programming “That’s our plan and we’re working toward it,” but at this point, it’s “far from set in stone,” cautioned Tania Thompson, founder of Sunday Drive Arts Projects.

Still, “we feel pretty good” funding will be forthcoming, she said. “We’re super excited … there’s been such great encouragement from everybody,” including the owner of the garage, Mike Johnston, who continues to service vehicles of valued clients at the garage, which is up for sale or lease. Supporters include the Warkworth Business Association, the Trent Hills and District Chamber of Commerce and Northumberland County’s tourism department, she said. Two others are involved in the organization with Thompson, an arts administrator: Scott Smith, a film producer and artist, and Randall Okita, a filmmaker and educator.

The three are “very optimistic” the gallery will be ready to open by the end of the summer in 2014. Thompson said the exterior of the garage will be given a facelift but will essentially retain its look so that it “tells the history of Warkworth” and the building, Thompson said. She said she “fell in love with the village” when she owned a weekend house in Warkworth for a time and later worked as a consultant in helping to develop the Warkworth Lilac Festival. “Our mandate is to partner with other organizations [in Toronto] that need to do outreach,” she said. “The whole name is supposed to conjure up this idea of getting outside the city and

worth and just increase it,” she said, by featuring pieces of a kind that can’t be packaged and taken home, such as installation work. It’s “an expansion of the idea of Warkworth as a designated arts community,” Thompson said.   Warkworth and area “is so beautiful” that international artists will find it attractive to “come with an idea” to incorporate the local landscape into their work. They would stay for three to six weeks to make their art, exhibit it and talk about it, Thompson said. One of the gallery’s main programs will be directed to young people over 14, to make them aware of culture and how they can “feed into” it, Thompson said. To keep the gallery operating after it A not-for-profit organization, Sunday Drive Arts Projects, has applied for opens, memberships will be sold, sponsorfunding to convert the garage at the east end of Main Street into a nonships sought, and fund-raising activities commercial gallery that will include space for an artist-in-residence.

Tenth year for the Moira Lake regatta By Diane Sherman

EMC News - Madoc - Members of the Moira Lake Property Owners Association continue to support the non-motorized regatta they originated ten years ago. In 2003 a group of MLPOA members began a family fun event at the Kiwanis beach and boat launch on Moira Lake. They made their paddle boats, kayaks and canoes available for anyone to use. Bob Hadley, MLPOA president, was at Centre Hastings municipal council June 26, to give $500 from his group to help with expenses of the event. He told council, “Each year organizers

try to encourage more families to come out from the village and rural areas. For some of these kids it may be one of the few times they have access to a canoe, kayak or paddle boat.” In 2010 the regatta became a sub-committee of the municipal parks and recreation committee and the name was changed to Centre Hastings Regatta. It continues to be a free family day with prizes for everyone and a chance to win a kayak from Pro Tackle Musky shop. Organizers have a new category this year, the cardboard boat race. Committee member Hazel Gill was at the Madoc market last Saturday with her

cardboard boat called Flower Power. Gill said there are rules for building the boat and encourages potential entrants to contact her at 613-473-5624 or look for directions on the Centre Hastings Regatta Facebook page and information on the Centre Hastings municipal web site. She said the original instructions came from the Cape Coral Regatta <www.capcoralregatta.com/index/boatbuilding>. The big day is scheduled for Saturday, July 13, which coincides with Ontario’s Licence Free Fishing week. Registration for races begins at 9 a.m. with the paddle boat races launching off at 10 a.m.

Moira Lake Property Owners Association contributed $500 toward expenses of the 10th annual Moira Lake non-motorized regatta.

Muriel Gribbons, who passed away June 27th, 2007 Mom, it’s been six years since I heard your voice and I miss you every day. I awake each morning to start a new day But the pain of losing you never goes away. I go about the things I have to do And as the hours pass I think again of you. I want to call you and just hear your voice Then I remember that I have no choice For you are not there and now my heart cries Just to see you again to tell you goodbye To say Mum I love you and I always will And hope that much of you, in me you’ve instilled. The day that you left I just didn’t know That you were going where I couldn’t go. And now all my memories of you are so dear But gosh, how I miss you and wish you were here. Who now can hear me when I need to cry? It so hard to tell you “Mum goodbye.” Someday I know all will be well And I’ll see you again with stories to tell Of how you were missed and how we have grown And how good it is to finally be home. Until then my memories of you I’ll keep near And I’ll pass them on to those who are dear. I miss you Mum, Love you and miss you, Wendy, Dale, Brendan and Courtney

More than 100 volunteers along with donors and staff “understand that provision of compassionate end-oflife care to our neighbours, friends, [and] family is an important part of community,” Henderson said. He noted The Bridge Hospice encountered roadblocks “quite a few times” along the way that seemed insurmountable, until everyone put their heads together and “managed to overcome each of those challenges.” Henderson said the “next big challenge” is to find “stable and predictable” funding that will allow us to operate with a little less stress,” he said, “and I am confident that we will find the answer to that as we go forward.” The organization still has slightly more than $47,000

from the $188,000 the Trillium Foundation provided to help with its costs, and will look again to the foundation for assistance once the money is spent.

“We need to be creative and look at what it is they’re prepared to pay for and figure out how to ask for the right thing.” Although Trillium prefers that you not apply for the same thing twice, “they are very open to receiving requests from us,” Henderson said. “We need to be creative and look at what it is they’re prepared to pay for and figure out how to ask for the right thing.” A key “part of the pitch” in applying for funding is to make note of the “sweat equity” that has been invested in the local organization by volunteers. “The last few years we’ve

been averaging close to a thousand hours a month,” he said, in design, construction, fund raising, committee and board work, training, and now, round-theclock care. The hospice balance sheet showed it had a surplus of more than $566,000 at the end of its fiscal year March 31. “The surplus is there for us to continue to operate with, and we can get families to stop we hope as we go forward that and consider their own heart we are able to identify [other] health, it will work for all dis- revenue streams that will help to eases.” To register, or to find out more information, visit <www.walktheblock.ca>.

Spreading heart health awareness EMC News - Belleville - The local branch of the Heart and Stroke Foundation is hoping to start something big this month with their first annual Walk the Block Challenge, and Heart and Stroke Foundation area manager Maureen Corrigan said it’s all about connecting with as many people as possible. “It’s a chance for people to remember loved ones lost, celebrate lives saved and protect your heart,” Corrigan said. On July 10, individuals and families not only in the region, but across the country are being encouraged to take part in the first annual Walk the Block Challenge. This grassroots event doesn’t take place in any one location—rather, the idea is that wherever you are on July 10 at 6 p.m., you take part in the challenge by walking your block to both raise awareness of heart history and get a little exercise in the process. “Everyone participates from their own house, from their cottage, from their work … if they’re on vacation in Hawaii, you can walk there,” Corrigan said. Corrigan said that in Canada one person dies every seven minutes from heart disease, and that while recent medical advances are reducing that number, further research needs constant funding. In support of that goal, the Walk the Block Challenge also has a fund-raising aspect, and Corrigan said they hope to raise in the area of $5,000 from the inaugural event. Once a donation is made, participants receive a “Walk the Block” poster to put in their window, which in turn promotes discussion about heart health in the community. “It’s to get people talking about their family heart history, and to celebrate their family heart history … they should know about it,” Corrigan said. “Even if you have no heart disease in your family you still have every reason to keep your heart healthy and strong, so it’s definitely for everyone.” In support of the event, Belleville city council recently declared July 10 Walk

the Block day in an effort to promote heart health and awareness. “There’s nothing better than a healthy community, and it all starts with healthy families,” Corrigan said. “If

sustain us,” Henderson said after the meeting attended by about 30 people at St. Paul’s United Church. He said the Trillium funding supports staffing at The Bridge—an executive director and administrative assistant— which will have to be replaced when it runs out. “That’s a significant chunk of our operating dollars, [and] we have to find those people who are able to help us fill that gap,” he said.

Following a presentation of a plaque recognizing former board members for their contributions, Dean Peters, a former board chair, praised Henderson, saying as “the captain of the ship” he “hasn’t got the recognition that he deserves” for the calming influence he has exercised in solving problems. “He deserves an enormous amount of credit for the leadership over the last few years,” Peters said.
