No future digging at village park By Richard Turtle
Joseph and his coat in Stirling
EMC News - Stirling - There will be no more digging in the Edward Street Park. Councillors heard this week that human remains unearthed during the installation of a piece of playground equipment will be staying put, potentially saving the municipality as much as $100,000 in investigative costs. Stirling-Rawdon CAO Charles Croll told council an archaeologist had visited the site and, following consultations with the provincial ministry responsible, determined a full-scale investigation is unwarranted.

The event stimulated others to plan on cardboard entries in 2014, with a challenge by the ﬁre department going out to the local police force who were on hand in their patrol boat giving rides to young ones. Karen Jones, chair of the regatta committee said the event is one she has been wanting to see for some time. Member Hazel Gill took the initiative to promote the new category and built her own boat which she had on display at the Madoc market to promote the event. The noodle race was a hit with little ones and the pedal boats were enjoyed by young and old alike. More experienced seafarers took to the kayaks and canoes. The Moira Lake Challenge was taken by Tammy and Ashley Philips. Scott McNaught and Katy Sniderhan ﬁnished Please See “Tenth Regatta” on page 8
EMC News - Centre Hastings - The non-motorized Centre Hastings regatta at Moira Lake public beach Saturday, July 13, had a carnival ﬂair with boldly coloured water craft, ﬂotillas of spectators and comical regalia by entrants in the long-anticipated cardboard boat race. Four entries of cardboard vessels sat to the side on display before their launch after lunch on a perfectly hospitable day. Onlookers wondered if they could hold up for the paddle to the far marker. The Evans family of Madoc, Centre Hastings ﬁre department, the Home Hardware and Hazel Gill followed design directions set out by regatta ofﬁcials. A last-minute entry by the Howes family was a comical sight to see, made of unpainted cardboard and a generator box, it went down in the ﬁrst ﬁve feet of its navigational life. They expect to spend more time on an entry next year.

Subdivision bylaw raises questions from councillor EMC News - Stirling - After a discussion and explanation of the obligations to both developer and township, council this week passed a bylaw authorizing the acknowledgement of details of the construction of the Wells/Ryell subdivision. Councillor Wilfred Shier had several concerns regarding some of the attached notations, including a map showing a pair of Elizabeth Streets, the provision of parkland, lot line changes and a reference in an earlier bylaw that allowed for
the construction of a model home when in fact a four-plex is currently under construction. “Everything in the agreement has been met,” CAO Charles Croll said at this week’s meeting of regular council, adding, “he’s a very easy person to deal with, and developer to deal with.” And while Croll added, “it’s not the ﬁnest piece of parkland in the world,” the requirements set out by the municipality and the county have all been met. “We passed a bylaw for a model home and we have four
homes,” Shier added, asking if the bylaw should be amended to reﬂect the fact. While the wording wasn’t speciﬁc, Croll says, “we authorized a building be put on the lot … and we knew it was a four-plex.” Council then returned to the March 13 bylaw to make the appropriate amendment, replacing the words “model home” with “four-plex.” Croll also explained that lot lines were subject to change slightly as a result of construction, adding it would be a matter of inches
Moira Place continues platinum support of Elvis Festival By Scott Pettigrew
Moira Place gives out a budget for “… events and others ways we can integrate into the community. We want to make sure we are part of the community and we have been trying to do that since we opened and even before we opened. We want to stay deeply involved in what goes on in the community and want to stay partners with many of the organizations in the community.” In other news from the Elvis Festival committee they now have a tribute artist all the way from England; he has signed up and paid his fee to compete. “Gordon Hendrix is from Saffordshire, England, and he is the European Elvis Tribute champion from 2011. We are so excited that he will be coming to Tweed to compete,” said Lisa Lesage. “This means we are now an international festival. We also have an inquiry from a tribute artist from Brazil as well who is still deciding whether to come.” Will Austin is the ticket sales manager and said that sales are slightly ahead of last year at this time The Elvis festival has received
a grant from Tourism Event Marketing Partnership Program (TEMPP) for $5,700. “This money will be for marketing at least 100 kilometres outside of our local area; we will apply it to online advertising through Zoomer Magazine as well as CHEX TV in Peterborough. We have received $200 from Tweed Valu Mart as well as Inova Opticians in Belleville,” said Bonnie Jussila, treasurer of the festival committee. Maril Swan is the advertising manager and said the web site is being updated regularly and invites people to check out the recent proﬁles that have been posted about year’s tribute artists. The site is <tweedelvisfestival.ca>. Lisa said that there are 18 tribute artists who have signed up and added that once again this year the festival will cap the number of artists at 30. There is still a need for volunteers and the next training meeting will be August 12 at the Tweed Library. People can call Carolynne Campbell at 613-4786178 for more information.
struct a new long-term-care facility within the next decade intended to house between 96 and 128 residents. In a recent Economic Development Committee meeting, Stirling Manor representative Charmaine Jordan explained that the process to construct a new facility can be a long one but an early show of municipal support could help their case. Council agreed to send a letter supporting the new build “and the township is making every effort to support the present owners of Stirling Manor to get this new build under way.” Council also announced the municipality will be holding a contest to rename the Registration Fair scheduled for August 8. Local groups and organiza-
tions are being encouraged to get on the list and the renaming is expected to take place during the fair. Councilor Bob Mullin reported that the task of installing water meters in village residences is well under way and progressing well. To date, about 400 meters have been installed. Council agreed to a pay increase they will only see if re-elected, following a recommendation of the Finance and Personnel Committee, “that, in keeping with the 75th percentile, the salaries for members of council be raised by $2,500.” The increase will not take effect until January 2015, after the next municipal election next fall.

EMC News - Tweed - “Moira Place and AON were the ﬁrst Platinum Plus sponsors three years ago and have been continuous supporters of the Tweed Tribute to Elvis Festival,” said Lisa Lesage, general manager of the festival at a cheque presentation at Moira Place July 15 where Administrator Michael O’Keeffe presented a cheque for $1,000 to the festival committee. “The Elvis Festival is a signature event and has brought a lot of attention to Tweed,” said O’Keeffe, “We have a great partnership with the festival in that they send tribute artists to Moira Place to perform for the residents and this has become a highlight for the residents. The vast majority cannot get to the festival so the performance goes on here Saturday afternoon and it is something they look forward to.” Lisa added that when many of the tribute artists are signing up they inquire about Moira Place and ask to perform because they enjoy it so much. Michael O’Keeffe added that AON, the corporation that runs
rather than feet. As well, council agreed to look at the matter of street names in the August regular meeting. Mayor Rodney Cooney offered his thanks to municipal ofﬁcials, staff and their families for their help during Stirling’s recent Canada Day celebrations, saying the event was a huge success. Highly impressed by the evening’s ﬁreworks at the end of the night, Cooney also asked that a motion be tabled to send a letter to the ﬁreworks company expressing the municipality’s appreciation. The motion was made and passed. Council also offered its support to ofﬁcials at Stirling Manor who are hoping to con-

Dear Friends of Madoc We send this note of thanks to the community of Madoc and the church of St. Peter’s Presbyterian Church for their kindness shown to us during this past year. We called Madoc home until an unfortunate accident that left me unable to work. This note is to say thank you to all the wonderful people that crossed our paths during our time in Madoc.
The friendly faces we met at the local church suppers; the merchants downtown and the friendly staff at Welcome International and Sunnyside Up have a special place in our hearts. We both received top notch care from the medical centre and the EMC was a paper that generously covered special events at the church and a great paper to catch up with local news.
The village of Madoc was our home from May 2011 until May 2013 and it was with great sadness that my ministry came to an abrupt end to owing to health reasons. To our church family of St. Peter’s and our friends and neighbours: thank you for welcoming us into your community. The Reverend Vicki Homes and Mr. Dan Homes Oshawa
Tired of broken glass because of the road Marmora Inn Dear Editor, My address is on Vanderwater Road not on Vanderwater “dead end” Road. I was promised our road would be chipped and tarred. The prepping was done but not chip and tar. Supervisors and engineers travel and know the road best and they should have the authority to decide what should be done when it includes tar and chip resurfacing etc.

Getting my driver’s licence in Paris, Ontario Dear Editor, About 60 years ago I was 16 and had been practising my hand signals, parallel parking and rules of the road and felt I was ready to get my licence. I arrived at the examiner’s ofﬁce which consisted of two chairs and a table in a little cubbyhole at the back of somebody’s business establishment. There were no computers or cameras and no posters on the walls to tell you how to drive just the two chairs and a table. I was greeted by Mr. Smith (the examiner) with, “Ah, you must be Cliff’s boy.” It seems that Mr. Smith and my father were buddies and members of the local Legion. After discussing the ﬁrst world war for some time, Mr. Smith asked if I would mind if we returned a few empties to the beer store while we were doing my test so we carried out three 24s and a 12-pack to the car. When we arrived at the car and we were ready to go, Mr. Smith observed that I was parked in a no parking zone and that wasn’t a very good start so I thought I had failed the test right there. We then went straight to the beer store with no hand signals, no parallel parking or any discussion of the rules of the road where Mr. Smith exchanged his empties for three full 24s and a 12-pack and returned immediately to his ofﬁce where we parked in the no parking zone and completed the paper work. I was told that I did ﬁne and say hello to your father.
Therefore, the dust is unbearable. I have had to replace a broken windshield being parked in my driveway. Last week, a stone landed on my glass table top and broke it. Am I or is anyone safe out there? Here’s hoping the situation can be rectiﬁed. Thanks, Merline Groskopf, Tweed
E-scooter must follow the rules of the road Dear Editor, Recently I sent an article in and stated what should be required to operate an E-scooter. On Friday, July 12, I was crossing the bridge going toward downtown. I was to the right as I was going straight ahead while the left-turn trafﬁc was properly positioned in their lane. I looked in my right mirror and could see the scooter passing everyone on the right tight to the sidewalk. It was obvious that this was a new rider as he bounced off the
curb twice, was dragging his feet and braking at the last second. As we all proceeded, he turned on Front Street no signal given. It is only a matter of time until someone is going to get injured or killed doing careless actions like this. This guy had grey hair so the young careless driver can be ruled out. If you are out in trafﬁc you must ride with it. That is the safest place to be. Gene Hamelin, Hastings

Spies and whistle-blowers
EMC Editorial - Edward Snowden, a former contractor to the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency, has been trapped in the transit lounge of Sheremetyevo airport in Moscow for the past two weeks, while the United States government strives mightily to get him back in its clutches. Last week it even arranged for the plane flying Bolivian President Eve Morales home from Moscow to be diverted to Vienna and searched, mistakenly believing Gwynne Dyer that Snowden was aboard. Former U.S. army intelligence analyst Bradley Manning is already in the U.S. government’s clutches. Having endured 1,100 days of solitary confinement, he is now on trial for “aiding the enemy” by passing a quarter-million U.S. embassy messages, Afghanistan and Iraq war logs, detainee assessments from Guantanamo and videos of U.S. attacks in Afghanistan and Iraq to the WikiLeaks web site. These two American whistle-blowers have a lot in common. They are both young idealists who had access to the inner workings of the U.S. “security community,” and were appalled by what they learned. Their intentions were good, but their fate may be harsh. (Bradley faces life in prison without parole.) And there is one big difference between them. Bradley, the more naive of the two, was shocked by facts that more experienced observers take for granted: that governments, including the U.S. government, routinely lie to their citizens, their allies, and the world, and that armies at war, including the U.S. army, sometimes commit terrible crimes. Edward Snowden, on the other hand, has exposed something that even experienced observers did NOT take for granted: that the U.S. government has created a massive apparatus for discovering everybody else’s secrets. Under the cover of the “war on terror,” it has been secretly trawling the telecommunications networks of the whole world for information not just on terrorism, but on any other subject that affects its interests. Never mind the hypocrisy of this. (American secrets are sacred, but the United States has the right to know everybody else’s.) It’s the sheer scale and brazen arrogance of the operation that are so stunning. Exhibit A is the PRISM program, whose very existence was a secret until Snowden spilled the beans early last month. This program, run by the National Security Agency, began in 2007. It collects data from all nine major American Internet giants: Microsoft, Apple, Facebook, Google, Skype, Yahoo, etc., and they are not allowed to reveal the fact that they are passing the data to the U.S. government.
In the first instance, it’s mostly traffic analysis: who is talking to whom? But if the traffic pattern sparks the NSA’s interest (or if the U.S. government wants to know the content of the messages for other reasons), then the spies can read the actual messages. And, as you would expect, PRISM didn’t just stay focused on “terrorism” for very long. The NSA started using its new tools, and some older ones, to spy on foreign governments and companies, including those of America’s allies. “We hack network backbones—like huge Internet routers, basically—that give us access to the communications of hundreds of thousands of computers without having to hack every single one,” Snowden told the South China Morning Post in late June. U.S. citizens resident in the United States are allegedly exempt from having their messages read without a court order (but the court is secret, too). Unless, of course, American citizens communicate with people living outside the U.S., in which case they are fair game. Americans, on the whole, are remarkably untroubled by the NSA’s actions. Almost a million people work in the U.S. security industry, and most of those jobs would disappear if Americans did not believe that “terrorism” is the greatest threat facing their country. So the industry works very hard to sell them this fiction, and most of them accept it. Foreigner governments, by contrast, are very angry. The countries targeted by the NSA included not just obvious candidates like China and Russia, but U.S. allies like France, Italy, Greece, Japan and South Korea. The European Union’s embassy in Washington, its office at the United Nations, and even its headquarters in Brussels have been hacked. Latin American targets include not just Venezuela, but Mexico, Chile, Colombia and Brazil. (It’s those pesky Brazilian terrorists.) French President Francois Hollande responded to Snowden’s revelations by demanding that the spying “stops at the earliest possible date—that is to say immediately.” Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff said that the NSA’s actions, if proven, would represent “violations of sovereignty and human rights.” But foreign protests will not force a shut-down of the PRISM programme. At most, it will be renamed and re-hidden. The U.S. government gains major advantages by knowing everybody else’s secrets, and the million people in the “security community” are a huge domestic lobby. Manning and Snowden have done the world a service by exposing the U.S. government’s illicit actions past and present, but Manning’s future is probably life imprisonment, Snowden’s a life in exile (if he’s lucky). No good deed goes unpunished.
LETTER TO THE EDITOR
The real cost of nuclear: addendum
Dear Editor, I have to correct the estimated $1.5 billion a year cost of Sellafield cleanup costs in the UK, which according to the National Audit Office has ballooned another 900 million pounds. In 2008 the authority brought in a consortium of companies to hire other experts etc. This is like handing the keys to the liquor store to a bunch of drunks, with instructions to gather their friends to help clean the place out. The authority does plan to clean up the site over the next 108 years! No you can’t make this up. Margaret Hodge, who chairs the Parliament’s public accounts committee said, “My concern is that unless the authority holds Sellafield Limited to a clear and rigorously benchmarked plan, timetables will continue to slip and cost spiral.” Over to Fukushima where levels of cancer causing caesium 134 and 137 in the ground water had rapidly increased to 90 times and 86 times higher than a week ago. The operator does not know where the leak is coming from. The levels are

now at 160 and 200 times the allowable limit respectively. Strontium 90 is also at 30 times the permitted rate. Levels in the seawater of tritium near the plant were at a record high of 2.300 becquerels per litre. Back home to New Brunswick where the single reactor at Point Lepreau is being refurbished. Costs for the Candu 6 overhaul were to have been no more than $1 billion; they are now expected to reach $3.5 billion. Part of the huge costs are due to paying a full staff of highly trained engineers who would normally operate the plant for the three years time overrun. The fear is that if these people were laid off they might not be available when needed. Power to replace the lost production had to be bought from out of province during this time. Apparently numerous “unexpected” problems were encountered requiring hundreds of specialized experts, which also swelled the bill. Quebec had the good sense to mothball its sole nuclear plant, rather than play the money pit game. Paul Whittaker, Gilmour

Hot days are great for griping By Terry Bush EMC Editorial - No doubt about it, summer is here. Up until this week, I really didn’t have much to gripe about and that really isn’t all that conducive to doing an editorial. The temperature was nice. There was plenty of rain for the new lawn and even the area consisting of mostly weeds came through with the help of a little fertilizer and seed. But this week is different. It’s easy to see why citizens of the Middle East and steamy hot countries in general always seem to be a little irritated. I’m starting to feel that way myself. So, without any particular ranking, here are a few things that been simmering on the back burner but it’s too warm today to actually flesh them out. While touring to Bancroft on the weekend, we encountered quite a few motorcycle enthusiasts travelling in large groups. While, I’ve never really seen the allure of riding in a group of 10 to 20 people, I can understand why it might be appealing to some especially the cruiser types who don’t vary their speed much and just like to get out and enjoy some scenery. It’s also pretty obvious that a whole new generation of enthusiasts is on the road and many would be considered in the 50+ range. Good for them. What I don’t understand is the perception by many new and experienced bikers that all the motorcycles in their riding group are somehow attached to each other. They aren’t. While travelling down the main drag of Bancroft, a biker pulled out of the Tim Hortons right in front of us causing me to hit the brakes. What we couldn’t understand was the rest of the crew thought they could do the same. We hit the brakes again as a couple more followed the first bike out without a care in the world. There was no rope connecting them together. While all their lights may have been on, we didn’t see a hearse in the drive-through so we knew it wasn’t a funeral procession. So what gives? I’ve seen the same thing at four-way stops. Some bikes pull up, the first bike goes through the stop and as you attempt to take your turn, all the other bikes run the stop sign behind the first bike as if they are one unit. Note to bikers from a fellow biker. Jumping the queue could be hazardous to your health. A motorcycle is one vehicle and any way you cut it, even if your group has 18 wheels on the pavement, you’re still not considered a tractor trailer. A couple of real estate agents have also gotten my goat lately with false advertising. Have you ever been searching for a little piece of vacant land with some water on it and found exactly what you’ve been looking for on the Internet. Twice in the past three months, I’ve found what looked like a sure thing. I contacted the agents, got the directions and in one case asked the agent point blank if the photo she had with the listing was taken on the actual property. My lack of trust was showing but she assured me it was. On that occasion, I drove 45 minutes ending up close to where the alleged beautiful piece of property was and bushwhacked an hour into it only to find that the photo was taken probably 300 metres up the lake on a different lot. The advertised lot? You couldn’t even see the lake from it, the 50 metres of swamp vegetation was so thick. In the second case, after driving over half an hour and feeding the deerflies for approximately the same amount of time, the lot that offered swimming, canoeing and fishing turned out to have a trickle of water in front of it as the creek had split in two at the lot north of it where the actual photo had been taken. What’s a guy to do? Well, this guy will never use either of those agents again. And my last bit of griping has to do with Kijiji etiquette. Is it too much to ask people to actually take down their ads if they’ve sold their item. While looking for a canoe last week because of the upcoming family reunion scheduled later this month at our place, I was amazed at the number of people who think their job is finished when their canoe was sold. I emailed one person a couple of times and mentioned that maybe it might be a good idea to stop wasting people’s time. The ad is still up there. Another person didn’t bother responding to my inquiry for five days. Two hours after I’d purchased a canoe, they got back to me. They’d been away. Who posts an ad and then leaves town? I’m getting a stiff neck from shaking my head so much. Time to hit the air conditioning and mellow out. Distribution Kathy Labelle email@example.com 613-966-2034, ext 512

â€œItâ€™s good news,â€? says Croll of the outcome which represents â€œa savings for the town and we get to keep the park.â€? The property, he explains, has been declared a permanent cemetery that is no longer used and can retain its public park designation. The playground equipment will have to be lifted and temporarily swung out of the way to allow for the placement of a layer of soil underneath, but further action will not be required, he says. Work could be done using municipal staff and equipment. Ministry ofďŹ cials agreed that would be sufďŹ cient when reminded of the fact that a similar discovery in a park in Kingston did
not require re-excavation, Croll says. But, he adds, if at any point the municipality wants to install lighting, plant trees or otherwise break the surface, an archaeologist must be called in at potentially signiďŹ cant cost. Croll told council that an archaeological investigation would cost between $10,000 and $100,000 (Above) The Evans family copied a popular TV show with their â€œDougâ€™s but was advised it was almost Dynastyâ€? entry, claiming â€œCatch us if you Camoâ€? painted on the side of certainly closer to the high end of the their cardboard boat.

EMC News - Stirling - Itâ€™s more than just a walk in the park. In fact, says ďŹ ne artist and painter Andre Jolicoeur, when Art in the Park returns to Henry Street in August, there will be a range of original artworks on display for the public and available for sale. And the worksâ€™ creators will all be nearby to answer any questions. Jolicoeur, who has taken over organizing the event after its successful launch last summer, says this year promises to be much the same, made up of tables featuring the handiwork of local artists and artisans from potters to painters. Stirlingâ€™s Group of Eleven will be one of the participating organizations, says, Jolicoeur, but most are individuals who practise or teach their particular discipline on an ongoing basis. About a dozen different artists are also expected to be showing their work, he says. â€œItâ€™s just a wonderful way to get together and enjoy the work of other artists,â€? Jolicoeur says, adding it is also an excellent opportunity for residents to get a glimpse of some of the talent that resides in and around Stirling. â€œThis is the second year itâ€™s been held and weâ€™re hoping to make it an annual tradition,â€? he says. â€œLast yearâ€™s Art in the Park was a great success. Stirling is a beautiful town and Henry Street Park is the perfect spot to celebrate the artistic community in and around Stirling.â€? Jolicoeur is also encouraging other artists interested in participating this year or in future to contact him at 613920-0010 or by emailing <firstname.lastname@example.org>. â€œThere is no vendors fee,â€? he says of this yearâ€™s show, and â€œartists are free to set up their area anywhere they wish in the park.â€? Though he admits the shady spots close to the creek will probably prove among the more popular. And there is certain to be artwork of interest to all ages, he says. Stirlingâ€™s Art in the Park will be held Sunday, August 11, from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.

Paul said that they have had people inquiring about the gallery from Europe and the U.S. over the last two years and said, “… we feel we have helped the local economy and brought a lot of new faces into Tweed and we consider this a privilege for us.” Quinn’s Gallery is 5,000 square feet and has expanded to include the “early room” that includes Canadian, American and European masters including paintings from the Group of Seven. Paul said that the Tweed gallery is considered large among Canadian Galleries of their kind and
they presently have over 30 artists showing work and 45 artisans. “We are always looking for new painters, the walls are always full but if can ﬁnd someone new that is good, we can always make room.” Quinn’s also has a framing studio run by Bev Caswell

EMC News - Tweed - Quinn’s Art Gallery is only two years old and owner Paul Dederer is over the moon about being picked up by Arabella magazine and the fact they did a 15-page spread on Tweed’s ﬁne art gallery. Arabella is sold in both Canada and the U.S. and is self-described as more of a book than a magazine. The art work is in colourful large prints in the magazine and in the case of Quinn’s article, all the photography was done by Paul. At $14.95 it is certainly not a throw away magazine but more like a coffee table book. “The magazine article has only been out a few days and already we are getting phone calls and emails inquiring about the store,” added Dederer. “Arabella is one of Canada’s premier arts and design magazines and they sought us out! They said they had heard about this really neat gallery in the middle of nowhere (which, of course, we know is not true but for somebody from any distance from Tweed I guess that does hold true). The article they did really blew us away. This will help expand the reputation of the gallery immensely.” The magazine is on sale at Quinn’s in Tweed. The magazine article came to light at a reception held July 13 to open up this year’s Annual Exhibition and Sale at the gallery which will feature works by Tom Roberts, AJ Casson, Don Fraser, James Keirstead, Doris McCarthy, Don Curley, Bernice Drummond, Indian Gyberson, W.J. Phillips and many more. Asked about the exhibition Paul said, “We started out having the annual exhibition in the fall but we really missed the summer trafﬁc coming through Tweed. This is our second year in business and we are doing well in Tweed. We have lots of new and very good artists showing which we are happy with and we still have a variety of local artists showing. With the annual exhibition we make sure the artists

Children and counsellors benefit from drop-in centre
Everybody sat down for a jam session to try out some home-made instruments at the Queensborough drop-in centre. Photo: Scott Pettigrew
By Scott Pettigrew
EMC News - Queensborough - The Queensborough Summer Drop-in is as popular as ever with the young folks that live around the hamlet as about 20 children aged from two to ten stopped by on July 9 to enjoy an afternoon of making musical instruments with Peter Snell and yours truly. The children made bucket bass instruments and used recycled materials to make shakers and drums. There were five counsellors present who helped with the crafts and who are at different levels of training to become full-fledged youth counsellors. After they had made their instruments the kids all joined in and had a jam
session. “I often gain as much as the kids do from these workshops,” said Peter. “I always walk away having learned something from the kids.” Elaine Kapustra is one of the founders and runs the program. “We started in 2007 and over that time we have had a number of different counsellors go through the program. The first counsellor in fact just turned 21 and is now finishing university so as one group of counsellors moves on, another comes in to take their place. We have two counsellors and three counsellors in training.” Elaine said that the counsellors are paid for the summer through a program
Peter Snell and Scott Pettigrew stopped by the Queensborough drop-in centre to jam with the young folks for an afternoon.
that supports youth in their first job so they can get experience to put on their resumes. “The counsellors in training must be at least 11 and will become counsellors depending on how long they are with us. The three that are in training we call Eager Beavers and the other two counsellors have a lot of experience with one having been here from the beginning” Melanie DeMille is the counsellor in charge and said she loves the program. “I am from Wooler and this is an amazing program for a small town. I am a teacher but have worked mostly with pre-teens; this has been a great
opportunity to work with younger kids and to see what they like and what they can do when they are allowed the freedom to explore. The experience of working with and training young counsellors has also been a rich learning experience.” The program runs only in July Tuesdays and Thursdays and Elaine said that kids come and go as they please; she said she sees a lot of grandparents who are looking after the kids visiting regularly. “The whole concept and philosophy of this program is it is about children making choices; they do whatever they want to do. For example if the child does not want to participate in an
activity like today’s they don’t have to. The program is child focused and child directed; our job is to provide rich and full experiences but the child chooses. Children are encouraged to participate especially if they seem shy.” Elaine did say that this year they have new dress-up centre in the community hall. “We have a magical mirror but the dress-up centre is more than just putting on mom and dad’s clothes, the dress-up centre is higher level creative task and the higher level is demonstrated when one child suggests ideas on how another could dress up. We have costume books so that they can decide who they want to be.”

EMC News - Stirling - Ministry of Natural Resources officials were contacted earlier this week when a bear, after being struck by a vehicle, disappeared into a wooded area north of the village. Stirling-Rawdon Police Chief Brian Foley reports that a bear was struck by a vehicle near Williams Road and the Stirling-Marmora Road on Monday morning at about 8:15. The vehicle sustained moderate damage and the two occupants were uninjured. The bear was stunned, then took off and was not immediately located. During the first week in July, StirlingRawdon police responded to 45 calls for service, including a reported break and enter. Sometime early in the month assorted tools were stolen from a residence in the Henry Street area. Police say there was no evidence of forced entry. A motor vehicle collision/rollover on
Green Road July 3 sent persons to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Charges are pending. Police also responded to a separate report of a car hitting a deer. Numerous other calls were also received including three 911 pocket dials and one alarm call. Police also investigated domestics, harassing phone calls, phone and computer scams, assaults no charges, threats, animal complaints including a bear on Cooke Road. In the past week police also responded to four motor vehicle collisions, two of which involved deer, as well as two domestic disputes, mischief calls relating to smashed mailboxes, Liquor Licence complaints and numerous checks of the Harold Quarry. Police are also reminding visitors to the popular swimming hole that liquor and overnight camping are not permitted there.

Record numbers for Waterfront and Ethnic Festival EMC Events - Belleville - While the ﬁnal numbers are still unknown, organizers of the Belleville Waterfront and Ethnic Festival are already calling the 2013 edition a record-setting year in terms of attendance. “I’m using the word hot—the weather was hot, the crowds were hot, the music, the entertainment was hot, the food was hot,” said Belleville and District Chamber of Commerce CEO Bill Saunders. “We had a great weekend, the crowds on Friday and Saturday far exceeded our expectations.” Kicking off on Thursday, July 11, at Zwicks Park, the Waterfront and Ethnic Festival was expected to attract in the area of 30,000 to 35,000 people and Saunders said early indications are putting attendance up ten per cent from past festivals. Saturday night alone saw 3,000 people take in the live entertainment at Zwicks Park, and Saunders said that a total of 7,000 cars were parked over the weekend. As the
event is not ticketed, attendance numbers are based on parking, vendor and midway income, and surveys. “My perspective as an event coordinator, was that it was an amazing event, and we had record crowds on Thursday, Friday and Saturday,” said Belleville Chamber of Commerce event co-ordinator Susan Walsh. Over the weekend, the festival offered a wide range of activities and events, ranging from live music and midway rides to a popular kids zone and dozens of vendors. New to the festival this year was a partnership with Poker Runs America to help advertise for their event, which took place at East Zwicks Park from July 12 to 14. Bay of Quinte Tourist Council President Ryan WIlliams said the event attracted some 50 powerboats to Meyers Pier on Saturday, and roughly 200 spectators turned out to see the powerboats roar by on the waters of the Bay of Quinte on Saturday morning. “I’m very pleased with how it merged with the Waterfront Festival,
Christopher “The Twistopher” Bauer was one of a number of children’s entertainers at the event.
they really complement each other,” WIlliams sad. “Meyers Pier and any of the harbours where we had stops … the waterway was just packed on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.”

Centre Hastings council briefs sonally to get an idea of the costs.” He said one company has the required chassis and a drop chassis and can deliver within two to three weeks. Their quote is seven per cent lower than the other two. He stated there is a time factor at play. That company will sell to the ﬁrst buyer, and if he followed the written tendering protocol it would likely be gone. The other two companies would take at least four months or longer to deliver what is needed. It was noted that in the meantime, the municipality would have to contract a
truck to do the work. Both Mitz and Councillor Kerby noted there was no sense in continually “pouring money” into repairing the old truck and questioned whether the tendering procedure could be overridden. Treasurer Christine Martin noted Taylor had fulﬁlled the required process by obtaining three quotes, privately, and there is a clause in the policy that allows council to go forward with a purchase when needed. A vote was taken to have Taylor pursue the lowest quote if the vehicle was still available.

EMC News - Madoc - Centre Hastings mid-month council meeting heard another presentation by resident Bob Hadley. His concerns focused on safe crossing areas within the village, speciﬁcally from the two public schools to the skate park. He noted council had all ready approved placement of a sidewalk on the eastern side of Baldwin Street, but stated certain questions were not answered in the consultant report. “What about the safety of users [children] who go back and forth between the schools and Mac’s, Subway and the Skate Park?” He added, “Is the preservation of a hedge, tree or fence worth the risk of having children criss-cross streets to get to their recreational destination … twelve months of the year?” He asked council when they will “… get a safe and proper crossing … ” over Durham Street, and questioned why parking spaces are allowed right up to the edge of the pedestrian crossing at the Village Market. He said people are “put at undue risk … for the sake of one or two parking spaces.” Reeve Owen Ketcheson stated the hill on Highway 62 south of the corner of Durham and Seymour Streets is scheduled to be reduced and the road restructured, but, noted the work will not begin until 2014. Deputy-reeve Tom Simpson said the route of school students has been taken into account and a sidewalk on the eastern side of Baldwin would not vary their route, but, actually give them only one crossing at Baldwin and Furnace Streets. The Baldwin street renovation is expected to be completed by the end of August. The concern for safe crosswalks was noted by council and will be reviewed. Public works superintendent Roger Taylor said the road grader was “down” so a contractor was hired to do grading in garbage bin areas. He expects the municipal grader to be back in working order soon. Councillor Larry Mitz questioned Taylor as to the status of replacing a garbage compaction truck. Taylor said he had made three calls to manufacturers and received verbal quotes. “There are only so many suppliers. I contacted the three primary ones per-

Red Cross volunteer headed west He was involved with a group of people gathering information, and based on that, coming up with response plans and strategies to meet the needs. He explained that with a constantly changing situation, “You have to be pretty ﬂexible and react to things as they happen and take advantage of opportunities as they arise. One thing that happened midway when I was there, was that the provincial government announced a ﬁnancial program for evacuees about a week after the initial ﬂooding.” The Red Cross was asked to help with the registration for that program which provided $1,250 per adult and $500 per child. Allester was at one of the cheque distribution centres, set up in a local high school, where he and other volunteers dealt with “hundreds of people who were out of their homes and wanting to get ﬁnancial assistance.” Other than that, he was in the ofﬁce most of the time. The Quinte branch sent ﬁve volunteers to Alberta, with most of them involved in going out with assessment teams in the neighbourhoods and distributing relief supplies. One hundred thousand people were evacuated because of power failures, lack of phone service and the fact that much of the infrastructure was not functioning. Allester recalls, “When I ﬁrst arrived there from the airport, we had to take this really circu-
Craft & Trade
itous route to the ofﬁce because half the roads were closed due to ﬂooding. Over the course of the next few days, the infrastructure was brought back on stream fairly quickly … but there were still a number of communities along the rivers that were directly affected by ﬂooding. They had not only ﬂooded basements but water half way up the walls on the main ﬂoor.” He explained how the teams went out with relief supplies such as personal hygiene kits, bottled water and things like sun screen and bug repellant, since the mosquitoes were horrendous. They were meeting people who were basically camping out in their yards. “These teams of ﬁve or six people would go through the neighbourhoods and distribute whatever relief supplies they had, plus get a better sense of what was required so they could come back later with more supplies and deal with it in a more targeted fashion.” Allester spoke of the city works crews, saying they “did an amazing job, and of course one of the big things pushing them was to have everything, as much as possible, ﬁxed up for the start of the [Calgary] Stampede, which was only two weeks after the ﬂood. The fact they pulled that off was just amazing. The Saddledome, where a lot of the events take place, had water up to the eighth or tenth level of seats. The resiliency of the people in

Alberta and in Calgary is amazing.” He went on to speak of the community support, saying that people got together to pitch in and help each other out, “being very generous with their time and their commitment. It deﬁnitely restored your faith in humanity to see people under such challenging conditions really say, ‘We have to deal with it one step at a time.’” Referring to the town of High River, a community of between 1,200 and 1,300 people, which was completely inundated, resulting in a total evacuation , Allester said they were still pumping water out when he was there. Once that was completed, a staged reentry process was put in place. He explained that for some it would be a long time before they would be able to return to their homes, if at all. As residents were permitted to return to their homes, kits were distributed made possible through co-operation with the American Red Cross which brought tractor trailer loads of relief supplies. At last count, 900 Red Cross volunteers were deployed to the area, with over 200 of those being from Ontario. As of July 10, a total $21.5 million had been received in ﬂood related donations from individuals as well as from national partners including RBC and Walmart. By the time Allester returned to Ontario, the power had been restored and the emergency order had been lifted.

EMC News - Marmora - David Allester, a volunteer with the Quinte Branch of the Canadian Red Cross was again called into service in relation to a natural disaster. Last fall he spent time in New York following the devastating arrival of Hurricane Sandy, and more recently, he headed west to help with the relief efforts made necessary after the severe ﬂooding last month in Calgary. The severe ﬂooding began on June 20, and two days later, all Red Cross members in Ontario were contacted to see who was available to travel to Calgary to help with the relief effort. Allester ﬂew out on June 24, and was there until his return on July 4. While there, he was assigned to the Red Cross Calgary headquarters as part of the planning group. “We were basically trying to assess what the situation was on the ground from the reports we were getting back from our people in the ﬁeld, from listening to the government information releases, and whatever other info sources we could access,” he later explained. He commented that in some cases it was difﬁcult to determine such things as the general situation, the extent of the problem, where the priorities should be, what sort of needs had to be addressed and how many homes Dave Allester, a volunteer with the Quinte Branch of the Canadian Red had been affected, as in some Cross, recently spent two weeks in Calgary helping with the flood relief ef- of the smaller communities, the phone lines weren’t working. forts.

On a personal note, Gabourie said he had a great time performing with his group, and praised the growth of Bellevilleâ€™s music scene over the past several years. â€œItâ€™s really growing, thereâ€™s something special going on,â€? he said. â€œItâ€™s starting at a grass roots level, but itâ€™s definitely growing.â€?

was Hamilton rockers The Reason, whose single â€œDrive Me Homeâ€? has found considerable success in the Canadian radio music scene, and who have shared the stage with big-name acts such as the Arkells, The Tea Party and Big Wreck in the past. This year also featured a total of four local bands (including Rye and Silence) and Gabourie said the idea was to help raise the profile of local musicians. â€œWe want to highlight the local bands, we want to bring out people to see the local bands, and to get the local community to appreciate the level of talent we have here and obviously raise the profiles of those local bands at the same time,â€? Gabourie said. â€œLetâ€™s let some local bands pad their resume a bit by saying they played Indie Fest with The Reason.â€? Looking ahead to next year, Gabourie said that Indie Music Fest would prefer an evening time slot as compared to their midday billing this year, as it was admittedly difficult to bring in the big crowds. â€œWe definitely want the thing to move forward,â€? he said. â€œIt was a

coming talent to strut their stuff in front of hometown audiences. â€œWeâ€™ve had a lot of success outside of our own town â€Ś thereâ€™s such a huge scene in some of the bigger centres,â€? said Canadian Indie Music Festival organizer Ryan Gabourie of Bellevilleâ€™s own Rye and Silence. â€œIt just didnâ€™t seem like there was a venue for a big show in Belleville â€Ś the big stages are kind of reserved for the [biggest bands], but nothing really for the up and comers.â€? Relatively new to the cavalcade of annual music events and activities in the Quinte region, Indie Music Fest first took to the stage in September of 2012, bringing a lineup of 11 original artists of varying genres to play in Belleville. Gabourie said while they enjoyed the first rendition of the festival, there were several things they wanted to change, beginning with the weather. As a result, the second Canadian Indie Music Fest took place this past Friday in concert with the Belleville Waterfront and Ethnic Festival. â€œ[The Waterfront Festival] is obviously one of the most popular events in the area; itâ€™s a cultural icon, so we want to be part of that,â€? Gabourie said. Headlining this yearâ€™s show

EMC News - Marmora - Anglers of all ages plied the waters of Crowe Lake and Crowe River above the dam on a picture perfect July 13 during the seventh annual Crowe Lake Waterway Association’s Pike Only Catch ’Em and Keep ’Em Derby. Held in conjunction with the Ministry of Natural Resources and Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters’ Ontario Family Fishing Week, the derby is designed to decrease the lake’s population of pike, which compete with the walleye which anglers refer to as a highly valued species. Organized as in the past by CLWA members Robert Taylor and Norma Sedgwick Taylor, the derby was headquartered at Chris’ Live Bait where the registration and presentation of prizes took place. The shop provided two prizes, and as well, made medallions available for all the children who registered to fish. As Taylor said of the bait shop shortly after the derby began, “It would be hard to imagine running it without their input.” At day’s end, 34 pike weighing a total of 81 pounds nine ounces had been caught, with 51 adults and 18 youth having registered. The heaviest fish, caught by Bryan Ward, tipped the scales at five pounds eight ounces in the adult category, with Nick Hutchings winning in the 12 and under group for his fish which weighed in at four pounds seven ounces. The longest pike, caught by the team of Martin Krzeczynski and Dave Adair measured 28.5 inches, while Joshua Adair’s 23.5-inch pike took the prize in the junior division. CLWA extends thanks to a number of people and organizations, including Chris’ Live Bait for their support and sponsorship, the MNR and OFAH for a variety of materials, volunteers and members who contributed to the successful event, and participants who arrived from as far away as Quebec in the east and Stoney Creek to the west. Taylor and Sedgwick Taylor said in their report, “Anglers found out that the pike were quite elusive on this day; many spent much of the allotted time for the derby on the water grabbing the attention of only one pike! It was fabulous to see the number of family members registered for this derby; young anglers are learning skills which will provide them with countless hours of enjoyment while on the water!”
Nick Hutchings and Cody Lovely, were among the anglers to enjoy a day on Crowe Lake while in pursuit of pike during the July 13 Pike Only Catch ’Em and Keep ’Em Derby presented by the Crowe Lake Waterway Association.
The father and son team of Tyler and Brian Ward were the first to weigh in, with one of their fish, at five pounds eight ounces, taking the prize for being the heaviest pulled from the water.

End of season near
EMC Sports - Stirling - Next year the Stirling District Minor Soccer Association (SDMSA) turns 20. The local sports association wraps up its 19th season this weekend after occupying the many soccer ďŹ elds neighbouring the Stirling Fairgrounds in Stirling every Tuesday and Thursday evening since the end of May. Association President Tom Martin says it was another successful year with dozens of players registered on 26 teams in six different divisions. And this weekend marks the ďŹ nal tournament day for the house leagueâ€™s 2013 season with games scheduled from 9 a.m. until mid afternoon. Players also receive a free lunch (hamburger or pizza) and drink following each teamâ€™s ďŹ nal game and awards, team pictures and individual photos will also be handed out. And again it was not just the players, but the parents and volunteers who helped make the season a successful one. Martin says volunteer coaches, many with years of involvement in the association, as well as association members and referees have also made a signiďŹ cant contribution to the summerâ€™s fun and competition. As has become the tradition with the SDMSA, the recipient of the Jonathon Swallow Memorial Award for Excellence in Coaching will again be announced on the ďŹ nal day of the season. Players and parents, Martin explains, are provided with nomination forms, which are also available on the Internet, to be ďŹ lled out by mid-July with the results tallied in time to make the presentation on Tournament Day.

Family canoeing across Canada pass through area By John Campbell
EMC Lifestyles - Trent Hills - Geoff and Pamela MacDonald have added to the challenges of raising a young family by spending their summers paddling across Canada. When they began their journey from Victoria in 2007, the Calgary couple hadn’t any children and they fully expected they’d be able to travel from coast to coast in three years. It was to be “an adventure, to experience Canada,” Geoff said, but a big flood in British Columbia slowed them down at the outset, and nature has disrupted their plans in various ways since then, “so our schedule became dictated by forces that we had no control over,” Geoff said during an overnight stopover at the Healey Falls flight lock July 11. “And at some point we said we need to start having a family.” Jude, three-and-a-half, was the first to arrive and Rane was born seven months ago. “Having a child really changes your outlook and what you’re trying to accomplish,” Geoff said. The original intent was to go all the way to St. John’s in Newfoundland and Labrador but that changed once they had two young sons, because tides and weather systems “can be very

dangerous and unpredictable,” Geoff said. “We have to be very cautious with children.” “It’s doable but it would take a lot more time than we thought we had,” Pam said. “Try to push hard every day everybody’s unhappy,” and should you set a schedule and fall behind, “you might be tempted to make decisions that aren’t safe so we decided Quebec City was manageable.” They expect to arrive there the Labour Day weekend, after a journey of nearly 10,000 kilometres. They travel about 25 kilometres a day; Pam helps out with the paddling whenever Rane falls asleep. “This trip has become our life,” said Geoff, a 38-year-old geologist whose employer lets him take a leave of absence each summer. Pam, 37, is a consulting operations analyst. Their mode of transportation is a 20foot Esquif Miramichi canoe made in Quebec that’s “extremely stable,” Pam said. A collapsible sail enables them to take advantage of favourable winds. The couple named their canoe Margo’s Cargo, after one of Stompin’ Tom’s songs. They’re fans of the country music icon who died earlier this year. “What a character,” Pam said. “He was a good inspiration for us.” Please see “Rockies” on page B3

These horseshoe heavers are the best in the nation By Steve Jessel
EMC Sports - Belleville - It was often a dead silence inside the confines of the Quinte Sports and Wellness Centre this past weekend, despite the hundreds of competitors. Every so often, the clang of metal striking metal would interrupt the silence, usually followed by an audible cheer, or gasp of disappointment. The Canadian Horseshoe Championships can be a tense affair. “I enjoyed myself immensely,” said Gary Batty of the Belleville Horseshoe Club, which organized the event. “I wanted to play in the Canadians, and I did. I wanted to host it, and the club did. And I wanted to win a game, and I won three, so I’m happy.” Over 200 participants were in Belleville this past weekend for some of the highest-level horseshoe action in the country, the 2013 Canadian Horseshoe Championships. Taking place at Arena B of the Quinte Sports and Wellness Centre from July 10 to 13, the Horseshoe Canada sanctioned event Monique Labrech of Quebec carefully lines up a shot during the 2013 Canadian Horseshoe Champion- drew competitors from every province, many of them pitching for a chance to ships in Belleville this past weekend.

“amazing” complex. “I think it was excellent; these people did an amazing job,” Leis said. “I think overall the feeling that I got from players and spectators was phenomenal.” The Belleville organizers had roughly seven months to prepare for the event, after another city unexpectedly withdrew their candidacy late in the championship cycle. Undaunted, the Belleville club powered through to put together an exceptional event by all accounts, culminating in the largest Horseshoe Canada banquet in the history of the organization. “It was a little difficult, but we did it,” Batty said. “I think Belleville is proud. Everybody was proud of the facility, what we had done and the way it turned out.” For those attending the event, it was hard to miss the overall age of participants and spectators, with the vast majority over the age of 40. Horseshoes as a competitive sport is facing lean times in terms of fresh blood, but Batty agreed that events like this can only help

the sport in the long run. “It definitely helps raise the profile of the sport; I mean there’s people talking about it that [don’t know what the sport is],” Batty said. “If you can get one kid to go and come out with you, and he likes it, and then he tells a friend, I think that’s the only way we’re going to get going.” The Belleville Horseshoe Club is always looking for new members, and can be reached by calling 613-9690974.
Ballet aid is a go
By Jack Evans
EMC News - Belleville - Quinte Ballet School is good to go for its fall registration following a special meeting of Belleville City Council last week. The brief meeting gave speedy passage to a bylaw to allow council for service as a guarantor for a line of credit for the school, in keeping with a discussion and positive response at council’s previous regular meeting. The 40-year-old private ballet school had, over the years, earned a reputation as one of Canada’s, if not North America’s premier junior ballet training schools, sending graduates to major schools and companies around the world. The school’s line of credit was abruptly cut off at a critical time because, while the school owned a modern, valuable building, it did not own the land, which had been contributed by the Hastings and Prince Edward Counties Board of Education. Council also regarded the school as of economic value to the community, attracting many students from a wide area, as far as Japan, and providing payroll to local employees.

Silver medal winner Canada’s oldest competitor By Sue Dickens
difﬁcult to talk about his success in this sport. Humble to a fault, he eventually took this writer to an outdoor workshop where several walls are ﬁlled with medals. His most recent, a silver medal he won at the 2013 Pan American Masters Weightlifting Championships in Chicago. He competed in the men’s 80 age group, 77kilogram class. He and Pedro Serrano from
Puerto Rico, also 82, were the oldest weightlifters participating in the event. The three-day championships saw 250 competitors vying for a win. “They were not all competing against me, fortunately for me,” said Buchanan with a grin. The competition was broken down into age and weight categories, in ﬁveyear increments, beginning with men’s 35 years of age and ending with men’s 80 years of age. “I’ve been involved in the sport of weightlifting for many, many years,” said Buchanan. He started when his brother decided to get a set of weights when he was very young. “He gave up after a while but I got interested and kept it up,” explained Buchanan. Moving to Toronto in 1965 he got a job in the weightlifting arena. He was weightlifting as well and soon began competing “at a modest level.” “It is the most interesting sport for me,” he said. “It has a lot of science behind it. Kind of like golf which you know people analyze,” he added. “The execution of the lifts is very scientiﬁc and that appealed to me.” As he talked about the sport his calm demeanor remained unchanged,
but his eyes lit up as he surfed through a number of photos on his computer which had been taken at the competition in Chicago. “You get a rush when you lift your maximum,” he said. To stay at the top of his game he trains at Apollo Barbell Club in Belleville. Buchanan said he has always competed not only against others but also against himself, trying to set the bar higher and higher. His interest in the sport has taken him around the world. He is a former president of the Canadian Weightlifting Federation. “I’ve been the Olympics, world championships, World Commonwealth Games as a team manager and president,” he noted. And to add to his list of accomplishments he has also earned the credentials to become an International Referee #1 in weightlifting. He was a referee in that capacity and a weightlifter at the 2013 Pan American Masters Weightlifting Championships in Chicago. “They are always desperate for referees at the International Referee #1 level,” he commented. Weightlifters came from throughout the U.S., Canada and South America to compete.
Now that he has returned, he is settling into his routine at his rural countryside home where he lives with his wife Glenis. The medals, he said, are only one part of the reward
from his sport of his choice. “For the amount of effort I put into weightlifting I’ve got so much more back. I have friends all over the world,” he concluded.
EMC Lifestyles - Campbellford - “I’m getting close to retirement,” said Don Buchanan, with a mischievous laugh. Celebrating his 82nd birthday this month he sat down with the Trent Hills Independent to talk about what is a very heavy subject— weightlifting. As the oldest competing Masters weightlifter in Canada, he still ﬁnds it

The couple said much of their enjoyment in crossing the country has come from meeting fellow Canadians. “We set out with the goal of seeing all these beautiful Canadian landscapes,” Geoff said, “but we didn’t expect the generosity of people. It’s been great.” They’ve had people help them fix things, take them into their homes for a couple of days and feed them, and give them the keys to the car to get supplies or, in one instance, take Jude to see a doctor a hundred kilometres

First Nations want “in-kind” support to repair “desecrated” burial site By Bill Freeman
EMC News - Norwood - Township council will wait until an August staff report before acting on a request from a First Nations delegation seeking in-kind assistance to repair and secure a “known
and documented” 500-year-old burial mound at a property on Orchard Road that was disturbed during a private construction project in 2011. The municipality issued the building permit before an archeological assess-
ment was done on the site and work was halted only after human remains were found, Hiawatha First Nation Chief Glen Cowie told council last week as part of a delegation representing elders, youth and other supporters from Hiawatha, Al-

and archeologists. “It would have cost the township less to purchase the mound portion of the property and preserve it than to cost it has taken to excavate,” he said. First Nations chiefs want AsphodelNorwood to “mitigate the current situation.” “The big thing right now is we’re trying to rectify this situation; our ancestors are there open,” Chief Cowie said. Winter weather, soil erosion and the need for more volunteers to assist with the work has “caused an undue hardship on the First Nations.” “We’re looking to get that retaining wall to protect [that site],” he said. “We’re asking for in-kind services to help with that. It’s not like we’re asking for hundreds of thousands of dollars. Inkind, it’s minimal.” First Nations would also like to see Asphodel-Norwood and other municipalities develop archaeological management plans to deal with sacred burial mounds. “We would be more than willing to work with you on that but it doesn’t answer the question that First Nations are as long for resources, either in-kind, to complete the protection of known sites right now,” says Karry Sandy McKenzie, process and claims co-ordinator with the Williams Treaty First Nation. “We still have an uncovered burial ground of our ancestors that needs to be protected. We would like some follow-up on what assistance you can provide.” “What are you going to put in place so this doesn’t happen again?” Chief Cowie asked.

The site was initially registered in the annual archeological report of Ontario in 1897, he added. “There are a number of different sites and you need to get a plan on how to manage them,” Chief Cowie said noting that it’s not just an Asphodel-Norwood issue but a countywide concern that must be addressed. The Preston Mounds site has been a “well-recognized and documented site for years, similar to Serpent Mounds,” he said. “There are several around the area [especially along water routes].” “Over the years all of those sites have been identiﬁed.” “Areas along the waterfront need to be red-ﬂagged for future development.” Nearly 2,000 fragments of human remains have been collected at the Preston site. “This indicates about ten to twelve of our ancestors have been disturbed,” Chief Cowie said. Alderville and Hiawatha First Nations ﬁrst requested in kind support and equipment from Asphodel-Norwood in 2012 to help build a retaining wall at the site but the request was denied owing to a “lack of ﬁnancial resources.” Chief Cowie says that total ﬁnal cost to when all the cleanup work is done will be $118,450, work done by First Nations

Bob reminds people to check out the Trenton Big Band Festival By Kate Everson
EMC Entertainment - Trenton - It may not be 76 trombones leading the big parade, but the Big Band Festival this weekend will be impressive. “Come on downtown Saturday, July 20, from 2 to 4 for a free show,” said Councillor Bob Wannamaker at Monday night’s council meeting. There will be the Toronto All Star Big Band entertaining with some very impressive instruments. The 17-piece band is joined by the voices of The Serenaders and the TABB Four with hits from the 1930s and 1940s. Recent gigs have included the Beaches International Jazz Festival, Elliott Lake Entertainment Series, New York Riviera
Theatre and the Roselawn Centre Jazz and Blues Series. At 6 p.m. the Dan Bone Groove Trio performs. The trio has been the go-to jazz group in the Quinte area for nearly 15 years. Dan is a JUNO nominated sax man whose collaboration with keyboardist Duncan Cooper and drummer Steve Conley has set the standard for jazz in restaurants, clubs, weddings and more in central Ontario. At 9 the Rhythm and Truth Brass Band perform in the Riverfront Square (Back of Front Street). This JUNO award winning Paul Neufeld funky horn band has been tearing up rooms and street fests since 1995. With two CDs to their credit and a long track record as a Canadian festival favourite,
the eight-piece band has its own take on funk, soul and reggae classics. “Come on down and enjoy yourselves,” Bob says. On Sunday, July 21, at 1 p.m. the venue changes to the Centennial Park amphitheatre with tickets for $15 in advance at local music stores and city hall or online at <www.trentonbigbandfestival. com> or $20 at the gate. “Peter Appleyard and the Swing Fever band is one of the greatest bands in Canada,” Bob says. Appleyard is one of Canada’s internationally renowned jazz legends, having played eight years with Benny Goodman’s sextet in the 1970s. An Ofﬁcer of the Order of Canada, Appleyard has shared
stages with the likes of Frank Sinatra, Oscar Peterson, Mel Torme and Miles Davis. At 85, he shows little sign of slowing down. John MacLeod’s Rex Hotel Orchestra is another show-stopper, with a JUNO-award-winning album of best traditional jazz. Formed ten years ago the 20-piece band’s name is taken from the jazz bar in Toronto where it performs on the last Monday of every month. “There’s also Swing Dancers,” Bob says. “Come enjoy yourselves!” There will be an artist village, food and Huff Estates wine available in the park. The event is sponsored by Seasons Dufferin Centre Bob Wannamaker (r) talks about the Trenton Big Band Festival in council with Keith Reid looking on. Photo: Kate Everson and the OLG.
Double Ducky Derby Dash will again be held at the Waterfront Festival the Campbellford/Seymour Fire Department rescue boat, the OPP Marine unit, and “our own safety boat at the ready in the water.” In keeping with the waterfront theme the Campbellford BIA Waterfront Festival is selling Double Ducky Derby Dash tickets. At 4 p.m. on the day of the event 300 ducks will be launched from the arch of the Campbell-
ford Bridge and folks can watch as they ﬂoat downstream on the current, (upstream if the wind is too strong). “If your duck comes in ﬁrst, you could win a $100 gift certiﬁcate from Sharpe’s Food Market or from Campbellford Canadian Tire,” explained Kerr. The Double Ducky Derby Dash tickets are available from participating downtown Campbellford merchants at $2 each
and the money collected goes to pay for the cost of the insurance for the event. “Be part of the action, be part of the crowd for the Campbellford BIA’s 18th annual Waterfront Festival,” she added with enthusiasm, as the volunteers get ready for the big event which takes place on Saturday, August 3.

EMC Section B - Thursday, July 18, 2013 B5
The Good Earth: EMC Lifestyles - The dog days of summer are soon to arrive; last week was just a taste of things to come. Linked to Sirius, the Dog Star, they refer to the full-on, beat-you-down spells of hot, hazy and miserably humid days of July and August. The next paragraph is lifted directly from Wikipedia: â€œDog Days were popularly believed to be an evil time â€˜the Sea boiled, the Wine turned sour, Dogs grew mad, and all other creatures became languid; causing to man, among other diseases, burning fevers, hysterics, and phrensies.â€™ according to Bradyâ€™s Clavis Calendaria, 1813â€? Danâ€™s comment to this: â€œI would like to add that this is the season when all the bread in the bread box turns mouldy overnight making it tough to have toast and marmalade for breakfast.â€? Did you know that the Romans (BC) would sacriďŹ ce a brown dog in an attempt to ward off the unpleasant
Sheila Wray Gregoire EMC Lifestyles - Last week the perfect storm hit Toronto. Unexpected torrential rains poured down at rush hour on a weekday, stranding commuters and imperiling Go Train passengers (some of whom had to deal with snakes on a train). Combine heavy rains with the height of the commute and outdated sewage systems and you have a major
Donâ€™t Let The Dogs Get You weather? So, what has this to do with gardening, Gentle Reader? There are several horticultural happenings coincidental to doggy days. One is the plethora of garden tours: stop in at just about any garden centre and read the items on their bulletin boards. A garden tour usually supports a good cause and is an excellent way to get new ideas. Please donâ€™t be tempted to break off little cuttings or ďŹ‚owers; youâ€™d be astonished at how much damage is caused by visitors. High humidity creates its own set of watering rules. You can check the archives of this paper and, soon, many garden writers will produce columns on how to balance the need for water and the plantâ€™s ability to transpire. The two plants that seem to suffer most, in my humble opinion, are impatiens and Japanese maples. With the heat comes higher soil
temperatures which affect our lawns. We grow â€œcool seasonâ€? grasses and there is a point when they say â€œEnough already! Wake me up when September comes.â€? (Which is a paraphrase from a song by the appropriately titled group Green Day.) There is lots of new work being done to further explain dormancy. Root growth stops at a certain temperatureâ€” 77Â° F at four inches below surfaceâ€”but this has little to do with dormancy. Leaves, stolons, crowns, rhizomes, all the plant bits not a root, are where the water is stored. When that is depleted, dormancy occurs. So, there is a good argument being made to â€œsyringeâ€? lawns in the hot weather. Instead of applying one inch of water once a week, think about trying 1/3â€? of water three times a week. There will be little growth but the grass should stay green. However, as my friend Paul VandenEngel says, â€œIf you want good grass, plant a tree.â€?
The last bit to chat about is succession. In a few weeks many of our gardens are about to change dramatically with the onset of dog days, usually for the worst. Make a note of â€œbareâ€? spots, areas without colour or bloom. As lush and full as the greenery might be, it serves primarily as a backdrop for the up-front colour. Note what is in bloom in other gardens that would enhance your bit of this good earth. Visit the garden centres and nurseries and check out the eye-candy at the entrances. We put it there for two reasons: 1) full bloom plants are pretty and people buy them; and, 2) our customers will be shown how to get full season colour, succession of bloom, by using those plants. The caveat is to make sure the plants are either perennials or shrubs and trees native/naturalised to your area. I might happily purchase impatiens at $12 a
Dan Clost ďŹ‚at but Iâ€™m not so keen at buying a plumbago at $29 no matter how blue the ďŹ‚ower. (Caryopteris or Blue Beard is a good small shrub alternative.) Something to do on a Saturday: midseason check of lawn mowers, turn the compost piles, replenish mulches, and check for bugsâ€”good and bad. Finally, if you do have a brown dog, dye the fur just in case retro-Romans are roaming the neighbourhood.
A perfect storm of social dysfunction mess. A perfect storm hit a Florida neighbourhood a year and a half ago, too. A Hispanic neighbourhood watch volunteer, George Zimmerman, spotted a suspicious black teenager, Trayvon Martin, in his community, and the two broke into a tussle, during which Zimmerman shot Martin. In a highproďŹ le trial carried even on Canadian media, the jury last weekend declared Zimmerman not guilty of murder or manslaughter. I couldnâ€™t help thinking of all of the ingredients that lined up to form that tragedy, too. Zimmermanâ€™s neighbours had been burglarized multiple times, and the police had never materialized in a timely fashion, nor had they ever made any arrests. His conďŹ dence in the police was justiďŹ ably abysmal. Martin, for his part, had grown up feeling like he was an â€œother,â€? a victim of racism. And yet instead of trying to help him respect
himself and ďŹ t into the culture so he could succeed, the educational system had done a pathetic job. Martinâ€™s friend who testiďŹ ed at the trial could barely be understood, her English was so bad. Because of atrocious communication skills, the poor girl is virtually unemployable. How can an educational system get away with such a dereliction of duty? Then there are Martinâ€™s parents, who split up some time ago. His mother admitted she couldnâ€™t control her son, so she had sent him to live with his father. Martin grew up mostly without a dad, and kids in those situations, living in marginal communities, often learn to take care of themselves by acting aggressively. So Martin lived in a culture where your main concern was making sure that others didnâ€™t disrespect you. He fought frequently, used recreational drugs, and at the time of his death he was suspended
from school. A police force that doesnâ€™t protect the public; an educational system that entrenches the underclass, rather than giving them a leg up; and a dysfunctional family system that leaves kids to fend for themselves. Put all of these things together on one February night, and itâ€™s difďŹ cult to imagine events turning out much differently. It was the perfect storm. Canada is usually about ten years behind American social trends, so as I watched this trial, I asked, is this happening here? Is our school system teaching students to communicate effectively, or just passing kids through, grade by grade? Are we encouraging fatherlessness through our welfare system and our no-fault divorce system? Do we have a culture which, instead of teaching kids to respect themselves and aiming to succeed, is encouraging kids to abandon traditional goals and to reject
the wider society altogether? Owing to both racial prejudice and racial pride, are we teaching kids to think of themselves primarily as part of a particular group, rather than as part of a wider society? I think weâ€™re doing all of those things. That night in February, Zimmerman looked at an innocent boy and saw a threat. Martin looked at a concerned citizen and saw a threat. They both shared an â€œus versus themâ€? mentality. And if we, as a culture, give up on shared values, a shared identity, and a shared sense of community, thatâ€™s what weâ€™re going to be looking at pretty soon, too. Canadians pride ourselves on â€œpeace, order, and good government,â€? but these things are not automatic. They are the product of citizens feeling as if they have a shared stake in the country. When that falls apart, our peace and order will fall apart, too. Then weâ€™ll see a lot more perfect storms.
Conservation authorities help ensure Ontario is prepared for a flood crisis
EMC News - Newmarket - While Alberta continues to recover from devastating large scale ďŹ‚ooding events caused by record setting rainfalls across the province, Ontario can take comfort in knowing it has implemented a system that helps reduce ďŹ‚ood damages through effective ďŹ‚ood forecasting, ďŹ‚ood mitigation works, and managing development in ďŹ‚ood plains. The most severe ďŹ‚ooding on record in Ontario occurred in October 1954 when Hurricane Hazel passed into

southern Ontario, killing 81 people and causing over $180 million in damages. Following the devastating impact of Hazel, a ďŹ‚ood plain mapping and ďŹ‚ood forecasting and warning system was established in the province. Ontarioâ€™s ďŹ‚ood management system is often regarded as an example of good risk management. Ontarioâ€™s 36 conservation authorities, local watershed management agencies that deliver services and programs that protect and manage water and other natural resources, work with the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources under a provincial emergency management framework to deliver a ďŹ‚ood management program to help safeguard the homes, belongings, and lives of Ontarians from ďŹ‚ooding events. Conservation authorities are responsible for monitoring and predicting ďŹ‚ood ďŹ‚ows and water levels within their watersheds, operating ďŹ‚ood control structures such as dams, and disseminating ďŹ‚ood messages to local municipalities and agencies. Flood
forecast messages enable conservation authorities and municipalities to prepare for, track, and manage local ďŹ‚ooding. Advance warning provides these agencies with the opportunity to put emergency plans into operation, evacuate communities if necessary, and secure property in areas that are more likely to ďŹ‚ood. In parts of the province where conservation authorities donâ€™t exist, the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources provides a ďŹ‚ood management program through their district ofďŹ ces. In accordance with the Conservation Authorities Act (1946), conservation authorities have the ability to restrict development in ďŹ‚ood plains. While some may claim conservation authority permitting processes are unnecessarily restrictive, ďŹ‚ood management programs delivered by the conservation authorities prevent loss of life and an average of well over $100 million per year in reduced ďŹ‚ood damages. â€œAlthough conservation authorities and our partners have done a good job
at minimizing risk, the reality is that ďŹ‚ooding remains to be the leading cause of public emergency in Ontario, costing millions of dollars per year in damages,â€? says Kim Gavine, general manager of Conservation Ontario, the organization that represents the conservation authorities. Gavine also outlines that climate change impacts are a signiďŹ cant issue as they create more frequent and more serious ďŹ‚ood events, â€œďŹ‚ooding can no longer be seen as a spring problem,â€? she says. â€œItâ€™s an issue year round.â€? Conservation Ontario believes that additional investment is needed.

Ontarioâ€™s Grand Canyon By John M. Smith
EMC Lifestyles - About 60 kilometres northeast of Thunder Bay, I found Ouimet Canyon, which could be considered Ontarioâ€™s Grand Canyon. Itâ€™s about three kilometres long, 152 metres (500 feet) across, and 107 metres (361 feet) deep; this spectacular, steepsided gorge is cut into the rugged volcanic rock thatâ€™s located along the north shore of Lake Superior. Itâ€™s believed glaciers came and went through this area about two million years ago, cracking and gouging the surface, exposing it to the actions of weathering, and eventually carving out this amazing canyon. Itâ€™s a geologic phenomenon that has been formed by the forces of ice, wind, rain, and timeâ€”and itâ€™s an awesome sight! There is, of course, a legend about how this canyon was formed, too. According to this â€œtheory,â€? the giant Omett helped Nanabijou make mountains and lakes. One day, while Omett was moving a mountain, part of it fell and killed Naiomi (the girl he secretly lovedâ€”and Nanabijouâ€™s daughter). Omett quickly hid Naiomi out of fear, and Nanabijou began searching for his daughter. When Nanabijou sensed that something was buried beneath his feet, he sent a thunderbolt to open up the ground so that he could take a closer look. He found his dead daughter at the bottom of this freshly created chasm, and he sadly buried her there on the canyon floor. In anger, he turned Omett into stone and put him on the canyon wallâ€”to watch over Naiomiâ€™s grave forever (one of the sculpted rocks located in the canyon is, of course, named the Indian Head). To get to the park, exit the Trans Canada Highway near Dorion, and drive on a well-marked blacktop road for 11 kilometres to the parking lot; the last part of the drive becomes narrow and winding, and trailers are not allowed,
so thereâ€™s a designated drop-off point. Ouimet Canyon Provincial Park is open from mid-May to mid-October, but itâ€™s a day use only park (no overnight camping): however, this nature reserve provincial park offers the visitor a network of trails and boardwalks and magnificent views of the spectacular gorge. I walked on the pleasant onekilometre trail that leads from the parking lot to the two viewing platforms that extend right over the edge of the steep canyon wall. From these spectacular lookouts, I could get a panoramic view of the area, with its huge vertical rock columns (including the Indian Head) and steep canyon walls, and I could also gaze far down below me, straight down, to the chasm floor. I could feel the cool air rising from the depths of the canyon. I was told certain Arctic plants and alpine flowers survive down there in the shade and insulated moss, and ice remains below some of the shaded boulders yearround; access to the canyon floor was prohibited to protect this fragile plant community. I found informative interpretive panels at both lookouts, and as I gazed to the north, the canyon eventually pinched into the surrounding hills, and to the south, it opened into a broad valley that extended all the way to Lake Superior. As I stood in awe at one of the lookouts, I began talking with a park ranger who was doing some bird watching there. She told me this was a great area for viewing such species as peregrine falcons, great blue herons, ospreys, and eagles. The canyon itself was named after a former nearby railway station, Ouimet Station (on the CPR line), and the station was named after Joseph Aldric Ouimet, the Canadian Minister of Public Works from 1892 to 1896. Very near to Ouimet Canyon is the privately owned and operated Eagle Canyon, which features on-

site camping, two suspension bridges spanning the gorge, and a zip line. Another nearby provincial park thatâ€™s definitely worth a visit is Sleeping Giant Provincial Park on the rugged shoreline of Lake Superior, near Thunder Bay. Ouimet Canyon is a bit
of a secret, for itâ€™s somewhat out of the way and not crammed with tourists. However, I found it to be a rather unique and memorable destination, and Iâ€™d recommend checking it out on your next visit to this area of northern Ontario.

Young 8 Wing couple wrestling themselves back into shape after life happened
By Ross Lees
EMC Lifestyles - Trenton - Lieutenant Dionysios (Gabe) and Corporal Samantha Gosselin perhaps have marriage counselling down to a fine art. Married with two children, they say they never argueâ€”once they get off the mats. Gabe and Samantha are also wrestlers, a sport they were practising when they met and fell in love. A year ago, after their second child and while Samantha was still on maternity leave, they got back into wrestling and worked themselves back into shape, to the point they won bronze medals at a recent Canada Cup Competition at the University of Guelph. Now that theyâ€™ve proven to themselves theyâ€™ve still got the competitive juices and talent, they want to keep working their way up in the sport. Having joined the 8 Wing Martial Arts Club, Gabe, Wing Pay Accounts Officer, and Sam, an RMS clerk, started a wrestling club and, as they continue to outfit it with proper mats, etc., they hope to work themselves into shape to wrestle at CISM, an international military sports organization. For that to happen, though, they may have to practise some wrestling techniques within the hierarchy of the military. The last time a CISM event was held, there were no Canadian military wrestlers involved. Challenges like that, however, are just wrestling opportunities for this motivated young couple. Gabe wrestles
at the 120-kilogram weight class and Samantha wrestles at the 72-kilogram weight class. Having started their military careers and then started a family, they were away from wrestling for about six years. â€œLife happened,â€? noted Gabe, adding they decided to try to get back to it. â€œIt was always something we wanted to keep in our lives,â€? Samantha adds. For the past nine months, theyâ€™ve been wrestling against each other while also coaching each other in a fairly austere wrestling environment. Where theyâ€™ve been practising, they have had to use mats designed for another competitive sport, which they laugh about and say it just helped make them the toughest wrestlers at the recent tournament. Somewhere along the line, they must have done something, right, however, because they each won bronze medals while competing against some Team Canada wrestlers and athletes from 17 years old and up with the two Gosselins being the elder statesmen. Not really knowing how their training was coming along until they hit some real competition, they had two goals going into the competition. â€œWe didnâ€™t want to get beat in ten seconds and we didnâ€™t want to get hurt,â€? Gabe said. Those rules became even more important when a rule change came down just two weeks prior to the event and
the rules were still being worked out even as they went on the mats. Secretly, the Gosselins had another goal: to score a point as quickly as possible. Both did that quickly and Samantha ended up quickly pinning her opponent once she scored that initial point. Gabe scored his first point against a Team Canada wrestler and that helped
him regain some confidence. The two athletes admit it has not been easy establishing the club and keeping their training routines, to say nothing of raising a young family. And of course, a husband and wife coaching each other does not always go well, but wrestling has helped get rid of the aggression.
â€œWe never fight,â€? Gabe says with a laugh. â€œWeâ€™re normally too tired,â€? interjects Samantha, as they smile at each other. And as if all those challenges arenâ€™t enough, they want to wrestle at CISM. Weâ€™ll keep you posted how that works out.

Squadron planning a 70th anniversary celebration By Ross Lees
EMC News - Trenton - 424 Squadron wants to bring all present and former squadron members back to Trenton to celebrate the squadron’s 70th anniversary. The actual 70th anniversary happened on October 15, 2012, but commanding Ofﬁcer Lieutenant-Colonel Jean Bernier did not want the anniversary to pass without a celebration by all present and former members of the squadron, according to Captain Gillian Parker. “It’s an occasion to gather our people together so we’re in the process of trying to reach out to our past members,” Parker said The celebration will be held on the weekend of September 27 to 29 at 8 Wing/CFB Trenton, beginning with a Friday night meet and greet at 9 Hangar, Captain Gillian Parker displays the newly minted 424 Squadron anniversary coin featuring the aircraft the squadron has flown according to Captain Parker. “It begins at 4 p.m. and we’ll on one side and their battle honours on the other. To make contact to purchase the coin, E-mail <firstname.lastname@example.org> or have buses to the hangar line telephone 613-885-4823. Photo Ross Lees side of the base,” she said. They are also hoping for a Search and Rescue (SAR) demonstration and they anticipate a Lancaster ﬂy-in, for the occasion. “There will be food and refreshments and LieutenantColonel Bernier is inviting all previous Commanding Ofﬁcers to return for the event,” Captain Parker noted. The Saturday morning kicks off with a golf tournament at Roundel Glen Golf Course on a ﬁrst-come, ﬁrst-served basis with just 40 slots open. That is followed by a wine tour of three wineries in Prince Edward County ending at Huff Estates for lunch. Saturday night, a semi-formal gala dinner open to spouses will be held at the National Air Force Museum of Canada (NAFMC), Parker stated. Sunday morning, the squadron wants to rededicate the memorial at the NAFMC. The ceremony will begin at 10 a.m. and conclude with lunch at the Ofﬁcers’ Mess. “That will be the farewell lunch where everybody can gather for their ﬁnal gettogether,” Captain Parker noted. For now, however, squadron personnel are concentrating on trying to get in touch with as many former members as they can, across Canada and the United Kingdom. Anyone interested in attending is directed to the web site at <www.424sqn70th.ca> where they can register, check schedules or garner even more information and details of the event.

Another aspect of the celebration is that LieutenantColonel Bernier has commissioned a special coin for the occasion and Captain Parker indicates it is the nicest coin she has ever seen. It can be ordered through the web site and orders are being taken now. A Search and Rescue/ Transport Squadron, 424 (Tiger) Squadron works out of 9 Hangar at 8 Wing/CFB Trenton. To fulﬁl its roles, 424 Squadron ﬂies the CH-146 Griffon helicopter and the Lockheed CC-130 Hercules. 424 Squadron is responsible for the 10,000,000 square kilometres of the Trenton Search and Rescue Region comprising most of the Province of Quebec,

all of Ontario, the Prairie Provinces and the entire Arctic. The Squadron crews one aircraft of each type on a 30minute standby response posture during normal working hours and on a two-hour posture at all other times in order to respond to distress cases as tasked by the Rescue Co-ordination Centre. The Hercules allows the Squadron to fulﬁll its other primary role of strategic transport anywhere in the world. To maintain this capability, the Squadron yearly conducts four Long Range Trainers to the Caribbean, South America, Europe and Africa. Airlift for humanitarian and aid agencies are carried on these ﬂights, often bringing aid and supplies to hospitals and orphanages. As well, 424 Squadron crews participate in all major airlift operations 424 (T&R) Squadron provides an important and diverse capability to 8 Wing which in turn makes for an interesting and satisfying tour of duty for its members. History On October 15, 1942, 424 Bomber Squadron formed at Topcliffe, England. It ﬂew from England and Tunisia during the war, disbanding on October 15, 1945. Back in Canada, the squadron reformed at RCAF Station Hamilton on April 15, 1946, as 424 Light Bomber Squadron (Auxiliary). On September 19, 1952, the title “City of Hamilton” was added to the ofﬁcial squadron designation. The squadron was disbanded on March 31, 1964. On July 8, 1968, 424 Communications and Rescue Squadron stood up at RCAF Station (CFB) Trenton, where they remain today equipped with the CH-149 Cormorant and CC-130 Hercules. Still relatively early in the process of organizing the event, Captain Parker indicates their prime concern at this point is getting in touch with all past members of 424 Squadron. “We’re trying to contact members any way we can and we’ll be making a concerted effort to keep in contact in the future, as well,” she said. The Squadron can be contacted in a number of ways, including: Telephone: 613-8854823; E-mail <squadron424@ yahoo.ca>; or by regular mail at 424 Search and Rescue/ Transport Squadron, 8 Wing/ CFB Trenton, P.O.

Health Unit approves new strategic plan By Bill Freeman
EMC News - Peterborough County - The Peterborough County City Board of Health has approved the health unit’s new 2013-2017 strategic plan which will help guide the organization through its work in the county, city of Peterborough and First Nations. The plan was released by the heath unit in June and focuses on four key directions. “This new plan is a significant
achievement that will guide the health unit for the next five years in a way that reflects our community and its health needs,” board chair David Watton said. Watton said the plan is the “culmination of many months of hard work. “It rests squarely on a foundation of reaching out to and connecting with the many stakeholders who work with us, who use our services, who rely on us each and every day,” he said.
The process to build the plan involved “synchronizing many inputs,” Watton said. Those “inputs” included “local population data, extensive community consultations, a review of Ontario Public Health Standards and the province’s own strategic plan framework: for the public health sector. The final plan “defines four key strategic directions: community-centred focus, determinants of health and health equity,
capacity and infrastructure and quality and performance. “These four directions provide a vision for our organization that is proud, caring, professional, action-oriented, and measureable,” Mr. Watton says. “Given the complexity and the importance of public health, there are many challenges and opportunities before us; however, we are confident in the abilities of our staff members who work tirelessly to promote health and
prevent illness to deliver on this plan,” he added. Now that the plan has been completed and approved, health unit staff will take to the road and make presentations to municipal councils throughout the county and to city council in Peterborough. The health unit is also encouraging local residents to download the plan from the health unit’s web site at <www. pcchu.ca>.

EMC News - Northumberland County - Jim Dalrymple, the man whose idea it was to establish the Quinte Agriculture Wall of Fame eight years ago, will join its ranks of honorees this year. He and eight others who have made significant contributions to their communities and the agriculture and food industry at the local, regional or national level will have their names added to the wall at Farmtown Park in Stirling September 15. “I’m quite honoured,” said the Cramahe Township resident, but “I feel guilty going in because I originated this wall.” Dalrymple was nominated by the Quinte Pork Producers, which had tried a few times before to submit his name “and I kept saying no, because I’m so involved in the whole process, I don’t think it looks right.” He needn’t worry about appearances. His record clearly speaks to his worthiness as a Wall of Fame inductee. A regional swine specialist at the Ministry of Agriculture’s Brighton office for 27 years before retiring in 1998, Dalrymple has garnered numerous awards, from the Canadian Agri-Food Research Council, The Canadian Society of Animal Science, the Ontario Farm Animal Council, Ontario Pork, and the Ontario Institute of Agrologists. He chaired the Ontario Animal Research and Services Committee, the Canada Committee on Animals, the Animal Code of Practice and Veal Code development committees, and the Quinte West/Northumberland Agricultural Advisory committee. He also was a director of Ontario
Jim Dalrymple and eight others who have played prominent roles in agriculture and community life in four counties will have their portraits and stories added to the Quinte Agricultural Wall of Fame September 15 at Farmtown Park in Stirling. Dalrymple, a member of Brighton Lions for 20 years and co-chair of the Brighton Applefest Committee for two years, retired as a swine specialist in 1998 and started a consulting service out of his home in Cramahe Township.

Swine Improvement, and a member of the Ontario AgriFood Technologies Development Committee, the Ontario Pork Industry Improvement Task Force, the Canadian Agri-Food Research Council, and the Animal Germplasm
Technical Experts Board. Dalrymple has also written extensively and was co-author of A Century of Achievement in Animal Agriculture. A graduate of the Ontario Agricultural College at the University of Guelph with a
Master of Science degree, he worked for Canada Packers before joining the Ministry of Agriculture. After his retirement, he started Livestock Technology Services and worked as a consultant; his clients included the federal government, universities and commodity groups, dealing with everything from climate change to animal welfare. “My work, it’s been enjoyable,” he said, and the highlight was “working with farmers.” Dalrymple said agriculture is much different today from when he started out. “There are far fewer farmers now,” he said, noting there were 20,000 hog producers in Ontario in the 1970s and now there are about 1,600. “I wouldn’t enjoy my role today because it’s more bureaucratic and you don’t get to visit with the farmers,” he said. “I could talk to senior officials but now there’s about six, eight levels of bureaucracy you have to go through to get anywhere.” John Boughen is the other inductee from Northumberland County. A past president of the Northumberland Federation of Agriculture, which nominated him, he served on the former Hope Township Ratepayers Association, the Port Hope Agricultural Advisory Committee, the East Durham and Port Hope historical societies, and the Port Hope Probus Club. Boughen, who died recently, also led the charge to send generators to eastern Ontario and Quebec following the ice storm in 1998, and was active in the Hay West campaign in 2002. The other inductees are: Russell and Mary Sills, and Don Martin, Hastings County; Bill Greer, former warden of Prince Edward County and a member of Wellington council for 30 years, 13
as reeve; Paul Burns, Lennox and Addington County, a former warden who received a lifetime achievement award from the county in 2009, and Bill and Marilyn Brant, Tyendinaga First
Nation. You can read about the 41 people whose legacies are enshrined at the Quinte Agricultural Wall of Fame by visiting <http://agheritage. ca/ag-hall-of-fame>.
Vintage Wings aircraft fly around CFB Trenton EMC News - Trenton - Vintage Wings of Canada’s heritage aircraft will be seen flying around CFB Trenton and Mountain View Detachment until July 22 as part of their familiarization program for the Royal Canadian Air Cadets at the Trenton Air Cadet Summer Training Centre (TACSTC). Residents of Quinte West, Prince Edward County and surrounding communities may see a Harvard, a Tiger Moth, a Fleet Finch, or a Chipmunk flying around the area during this period. There will be increased air traffic during the day; however, it will not pose a disturbance to the community. The educational outreach program, Yellow Wings, has been developed by Vintage Wings of Canada to address the challenge of turning young people onto science, technology, engineering and math, and motivating them to pursue their dreams through hard work and discipline. This program will take place over 50 days during the summer at nine cadet training centres across Canada. As the TACSTC is one of Canada’s largest Air Cadet training centres with approximately 1,600 cadets participating in various summer training courses, it represents an ideal audience for this educational outreach. Also, Trenton is an especially relevant venue for this training initiative given the historic significance of the base to the Royal Canadian Air Force and the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan.
