Crowds enjoy great Terry Fox Run in Tweed weather at the Madoc Fair By Richard Barkosky

EMC News - Tweed - A cool but sunny morning greeted the walkers, bikers and runners for this year’s Terry Fox run in Tweed. This annual fall event, whose goal is to raise funds for cancer research, is held in memory of the one-legged runner who himself was a cancer victim. Because of the open start feature of this run, allowing people to start whenever they arrive and not all at once, many decided to delay their normal start time in order to avoid the cooler temperature. Still, there were some hardy souls who set out on the course before the

Madoc Fair draws crowds.

registration table was readied. After registration at the pavilion in Tweed Park, the course led to the Stoco Lake Eastern Ontario trail, the former CPR right-of-way running east along the north shore of Stoco Lake. Markers were set out to indicate the halfway points of the five- or ten-kilometre distances to be traversed. One of the early registrants, Janice Lloyst, has run the ten-kilometre course several times, and on returning, said, “People should know how nice it is because there is no pavement.

EMC Lifestyles - Marmora For the past 25 years, runners in Marmora have come out in support of the annual Terry Fox Run. With a registration desk set up at the information centre last Sunday from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. there was plenty of time to lace up the runners and pound the pavement in support of cancer research.

McCoys say run is a tradition Continued from page 1.

“We reached a high of 58 and one year had 17 but there were 45 last year,” he says and with ideal weather numbers were expected to be at the higher end. “We get people [starting] whenever they want,” Lloyd adds, “and the distance is really up to them.” One of the first to sign up shortly after 10 o’clock was 65-year-old Rio Gray who suggested while one of the earliest, he might be the oldest runner of the

day. And while he has been regularly running 15 kilometres three times a week, he is also preparing for his first marathon in Toronto on October 12. But rather than hoping to qualify for Boston, Gray is simply hoping to finish. The 26-mile marathon remains substantially longer than any run he has ever completed. “It’ll be interesting,” he says. The McCoys first got involved in the organizational side of it when previous organizers were preparing to hand over the reins.

Marmora/Crowe Valley Lion Lloyd McCoy registers Rio Gray for the Terry Fox Run in Marmora last weekend. McCoy, 65, plans to run his first marathon in Toronto on October 12.

upcoming half marathon in Picton.” A veteran of many Terry Fox runs, Barry Flanagan, commented at the end of his run, “The lake is the best part, but I have to concentrate and plan the run; I don’t want to blow any gaskets.” He was pleased to complete his ten-kilometre run in an acceptably short time. “Under my age,” he smiled, noting how many minutes had been consumed. Sally Thomlison, a registration volunteer for 20 years, noted there were fewer people participating this year. “There are no kids, because they prefer to run in school projects,” she said. More people were expected from Belleville, inasmuch as their event was cancelled owing to a shortage of volunteers. Since there were fewer than 20 registrants this year, the money raised from donations and pledges appeared to total less than what was realized in former years, when about $4,000 would be sent to the Terry Fox Foundation. The final amount for this year was not available immediately.

With no immediate takers, they pitched the idea to their fellow Lions, Lloyd says, and found themselves in charge of the planning. More than 20 years later, the event has become a regular part of their annual routine. While both enjoy the running experience, Lloyd says, it’s Wendy who is taking it more seriously with her sights set on an upcoming Ironman Triathlon were a marathon is just the conclusion of a series of three gruelling endurance events.


Legion celebrates member contributions By Richard Turtle

EMC News - Stirling Joyce Davidson says it was fitting that the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 228, approaching its 80th anniversary celebrations, kick off Legion Week with its honours and awards ceremonies. But she wasn’t expecting Royal congratulations. Davidson, the Honours and Awards Chair, welcomed visitors including local MPP Todd Smith and other head table guests to the branch last Sunday afternoon where about 50 guests and honourees attended including several local and visiting Legion members. Smith, who made a brief address to visitors, also extended greetings on behalf of the Royal Family, a gesture he says was made during his recent encounter with Prince Edward during his stop in Belleville after Smith

brought up the momentous occasion. “So I’m here to extend 80th Anniversary congratulations on behalf of the Royal Family,” he said. Following the formalities, several certificates, pins and badges were presented to supporters and longtime Legion members. Certificates of appreciation were offered, honouring the work of Ernest Greene, Arnin-Paul Mahnkopf, Reginald Barr, Laurie McGee, Linda Clarke and William Clarke while recipients of lapel bars and badges included Barbara Drensek (Med.&Exec. Bar), Nancy Beale (Med.&Chaplain) and Andrew Burke (Med.&Exec. Bar). Officers were also honoured including John Mercer (Prom./Mntce.), Mark VanWart (Sect’y), Andrew Burke (Treas.), Wm. Clarke (1stVice), Judy Heasman (2ndVice) and George Jones (Past Pres.). Poppy Bars went to Judy Heasman, Jim Long

and Don Reilly. Service badges went to (Affiliate Voting) Robert Schreider (10 years), Carl Bateman, Pauline Hubbs, Ron Reid, Jean Morgan and Gary Reichart (15 years). Pins for Associates went to Rodney Carter, Nicole O’Hara, Mike O’Hara (10 years), Lilian Long, Lois Gorgerat, Linda Mercer, John Mercer, Pauline Marshall, Bernard Burrows (15 years), Honore Kenny, Douglas Orser, Gerald Ramsay (20 years), Marie Diemert, Ernest Greene, Ralph Ray, Edith Edgecombe, Lloyd Moore, Janet Wilson (25 years), John Ellacott, Wilma Kerr (30 years), R.W. Graff, Wayne Tucker, Keith Christie (35 years), and James Long. Milestones for Ordinary Members included Parry Chrysler (25 years), Wilbert Graff (45 years) and George Hughes (55 years). Also recognized at the ceremonies were Legion-sponsored Peewee Blues Hunter Matthysse, Malcolm Sharpe,

Keaton Lightfoot, Bailey Matthew and Dallas Paduch. Davidson says it has been a busy year for the Legion here with a sudden leap in membership including an additional 74 in the last ten months. And there are more to come, she says. Guest speaker for the afternoon was Stirling-Rawdon Police Officer and Legion Member Darrin Heasman whose grandfather was one of the branch’s founding members. Heasman spoke of the area’s history and the many contributions made and achievements realized by local residents. And his only conclusion, he says, is that there are many determined, dedicated, organized, tireless and committed people living in this community. It happened 80 years ago and is still happening now, he says. And the Legion, Heasman adds, has a role to fill in continuing to both help and educate others. “And I feel lucky I can volunteer and contribute,” he says.

EMC News - Stirling - It was a quiet night for StirlingRawdon councillors earlier this week at their regular meeting with few contentious items on the agenda. But there were some questions about the Police Services Board (PSB) bylaws during council’s post meet-

ing question period. Resident Joe Way asked council to look into the rules of governance saying amendments and changes are required and questioned whether PSB bylaws were municipally or board written. As written, he says, the bylaws “impede new members of the Police Services

Board from acting on behalf of the community.” Mayor Rodney Cooney explained that the board operates under both its own and municipal bylaws but agreed to look into Way’s request. During the regular session, council agreed to support and publicize the upcoming Low

Contract woes halt game, nothing else

EMC News - Stirling While the recently announced player lockout has suspended the NHL season and resulted in the rescheduling of the local Hockeyville game, organizers say the party certainly isn’t over. Cindy Brandt, who along with a committee of local volunteers has seen a host of successful activities already extremely well-attended, says there is lots to come including the upcoming Stanley Cup Parade on September 30 as well as an NHL alumni game that weekend. And other than the planned set-to between the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Columbus Blue Jackets, “nothing

else has changed,” she says. Early this week no specific details were available regarding tickets but Brandt says a draw will be conducted this week with results posted on the Internet. And the committee, she says, remains committed to the celebration of Hockeyville and continued fund raising for the arena. And pending results of the current NHL contract dispute, she says an announcement will be made with regards to the rescheduling of the preseason game to be hosted in Belleville. But right now, says committee member and parade chairman Mike Wells, it’s time to climb aboard the pa-

While looking over expenses before moving to pay the month’s vouchers council had few concerns but Deputy-mayor Wilfred Shier was unsure about marketing expenses incurred through the municipality’s economic development department. “I continue to have … It’s all confusing to me,” Shier said of how marketing expenses,

some of which are returned, are laid out before council. “We need to get some kind of handle on how many dollars are going out,” he said. Council agreed that further explanation may be required.

Dear Editor, As a member of the Baby Boom generation, I would like to address a few misconceptions in Sheila Wray Gregoire’s column of September 13. First of all, Canadians do not have “absolutely free” health care. There is no OHIP fairy. We pay premiums, often through our payroll system if we are working, for our medical services. There is a difference between universal health care and free health care. Canadians in general are willing to pay higher taxes to ensure that our health and welfare services are in place. Ms. Gregoire seems to believe that the Baby Boomers are being handed pensions and services on a silver platter. OAS and CPP are not handouts; they are earned entitlements. The Canada Pension Plan came into effect in 1966. An individual is required to work in Canada for a minimum of ten years in order to collect CPP. Like OHIP, both CPP and Old Age Security premiums are regularly deducted from most people’s pay cheques. A Baby Boomer who started working at age 18 in 1966 and is still currently employed at age 64 would have been contributing to these pension programs for 46 years. The unfortunate thing for many Boomers is that their accrued company pensions have been lost or greatly diminished because of faulty management or bad investments on the part of their employers. This often means they must postpone their retirement and continue to work. This is in stark contrast to European nations like Greece, where hordes of

protesters took to the streets when the Greek government announced it was raising the retirement age from 52. Boomers often belong to the “sandwich generation,” responsible for financially supporting both their elderly parents and adult children. They may have been able to buy real estate at low prices, but they purchased it with low salaries. To put things into perspective: someone purchasing a $35,000 home while earning $100 gross per week in the 1970s would be like buying a $350,000 home in today’s market while grossing $1,000 per week. The difference is that today’s interest rates are substantially lower. As for Boomers paying low tuition rates, most students I knew worked their way through college or university, rather than getting a student loan. Ms. Gregoire has previously accused Baby Boomers of “erasing ideas of loyalty, honour, and commitment in favour of self-interest.” I respectfully wonder what led her to form this opinion. The Boomers I know worked hard to make the world a better place for future generations, campaigning for causes such as women’s rights, nuclear disarmament, wheelchair access, conservation, improvements in education, and affordable daycare. Many of them still do. Perhaps Ms. Gregoire has heard of the Grannies for Africa. As a mother and grandmother, I know how discouraging it is for young people not to be able to find work in their chosen fields, if they are able to find work at all. I agree

Thanks to CMH Dear Editor, I recently went to Campbellford Memorial Hospital for tests in the Radiology Department and underwent day surgery. I received excellent care! All run efficiently, and everyone was professional, friendly and caring, making my visits very pleasant. A special thanks to Dr. Sue ChueLam, Dr. Glenn Gibson, and nurses Donellda, Marilyn, Jeff and Margot. Congratulations, staff at Campbellford Hospital. It seems we are quick to complain when things go wrong, so I thought this was worth mentioning. Joan Anderson, Frankford

it is important for them to get out and vote to try to make a difference in the quality of their future. The problem is not the Baby Boomers. It is the greed, apathy and excessive spending that pervades everything, from government to business to the general public. People buy cheap goods from third world countries, then complain about Canada’s lack of man-

ufacturing jobs. They confuse wants with needs and seek instant gratification. It’s time to move away from the “buy now, pay later” mentality, and take responsibility for our lives and our finances. It is also time for Ms. Gregoire’s own Reality Check. Sincerely, Penny Barker, Belleville

Hydro One rips off the little guy once again Dear Editor, I am 69 years old and on a small old age pension. What burns me up is that Hydro One is taking advantage of all of us old people. My Hydro bill used to be $330 a month on a budget billing plan. Now since May of this year they jumped it up to $524 a month. That is a $194 increase. I’m not rich but that is a little too much of an increase and then they tell me that since I’m behind in payment that they will cut off my hydro. My wife and I didn’t

mind the $330 but when they added on another $194 that is too much. I wonder how many other people they are screwing over on hydro. Also why should we have to pay for their retirement debt. The one’s that work for the hydro make enough money to pay for their retirement. The only reason I’m writing this is to warn others that they too might get a bigger bill than they expect.

Police Chief Brian Foley says the late night crash at the intersection of Highway 14 and Springbrook Road involved a northbound Suburban and a westbound pickup truck. Foley says the investigation is still ongoing and vehicle speeds had not yet been determined. The pickup, however, was broken in half, he says. The crash happened at about 12:30 a.m. The driver of the Suburban has been charged with impaired driving causing bodily harm while the second driver remained in Kingston General Hospital early this week. Police also investigated three other minor accidents including a collision where a driver was charged with

careless driving. Stirling-Rawdon Police are also continuing traffic and foot patrols now that school is back on, Foley says. A total of 13 provincial offence tickets were issued during the first two weeks in September and police are continuing to set up RIDE checks. Police also responded to seven 911 calls, two alarm calls and five bylaw calls with one ticket being issued. An elderly man reported missing was located, four domestic disputes were reported as well as two mental health issue acts. An Internet pornography investigation is ongoing too, Foley says. Officers are also preparing for the school year, Foley says, attempting to gain approval to conduct sports nights at the schools and gearing up for the school term’s DARE programs.

EMC Editorial - One of the first scenes in the ridiculous but thoroughly nasty film Innocence of Muslims shows angry Muslims running through the streets smashing things and killing people. So what happens when a clip from Gwynne Dyer the film dubbed into Arabic goes up on the Internet? Angry Muslims run through the streets smashing things and killing people. It’s as simple as that: press the right button, and they’ll do what you want. Some Christian extremists set out to provoke Muslim extremists into violence that would discredit Islam in the eyes of the West—and it worked, of course. As the U.S. consulate in Benghazi burned and the American dead were carried out, many people in the West thought to themselves: “The Libyans are biting the hand that freed them.” Wrong conclusion. It wasn’t “the Libyans” who broke into the Benghazi consulate and murdered the U.S. ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens; it was a heavily armed band of Islamic extremists. “The Libyans” recently voted in their first real election ever, and they elected a secular government. The film just gave the fanatics an opportunity to undermine that choice. Maybe the Christian extremists don’t understand that their film serves the purposes of those who want to overthrow the moderate, democratically elected governments, both Islamic and secular, that have come to power in the “Arab spring.” Or maybe they do realise that, and hope that the violence that they are stirring up will bring Muslim extremists to power in those countries. After all, it’s easier to mobilise Western opinion against outright fanatics. The grown-ups try to keep the situation under control. Grand Mufti Sheik Abdel-Aziz al-Sheik, the highest religious authority in Saudi Arabia, said that Muslims should denounce the film, but without anger: “Muslims should not be dragged by wrath and anger to shift from legitimate to forbidden action, (as) by this they will, unknowingly, fulfill some aims of the film.” Exactly so, but the leaders of the Arab world’s post-revolutionary governments have to walk a fine line, denouncing both the film and the violent protests against it. Moderate Islamic governments like that of Egypt’s President Mohamed Morsi have a particularly tricky task, since they are competing with the Muslim extremists who are organising the protests for the support of the same pious and socially conservative bloc of voters.

Letter to the editor

“We Egyptians reject any kind of assault or insult against our prophet,” Morsi said last Thursday, “but at the same time we firmly say that this cannot be taken as a justification to assault consulates or embassies and cannot be taken also as a justification for killing innocent people.” It was not a sufficiently robust condemnation of the violence for U.S. President Barack Obama, who said on the same day: “I don’t think that we would consider [Egypt] an ally, but we don’t consider them an enemy.” Obama has his own right flank to protect, and cannot afford to acknowledge in public that elected Arab leaders are in competition with Islamic fanatics for popular support, and so must choose their words with care. Most American voters are not sophisticated enough to understand the intricacies of Arab politics, or patient enough to care. Similarly, most Arab voters do not want to hear about the American constitution, which guarantees free speech and means that the U.S. government cannot just ban crude attacks on Islam by American citizens. The elected Arab leaders will certainly have had this fact explained to them in private by their political advisers, but in public they must demand that the U.S. government suppress the film and punish its makers. It’s not the United States that has attacked Islam, or even “Hollywood,” just a handful of Americans with a political and religious agenda. It’s not “Egypt” or “Libya” that has attacked American and other Western diplomatic missions in the Arab world, but small groups of Islamic extremists with a political agenda of their own, supported by a larger number of pious dupes. Indeed, the film in question passed without notice when it had its single public screening in the Vine Theatre in Los Angeles in June; only a dozen or so people showed up, probably mostly friends of the producer. It attracted little more attention when a shortened version was posted on YouTube at the beginning of July. It only took off when the religious Egyptian television channel al-Nas broadcast scenes from it on September 8, and then posted a clip online with an Arabic translation. That got hundreds of thousands of views in a matter of days, and the violent protests began almost at once. The Christian fanatics and the Muslim extremists are, in the old Marxist phrase, “objective allies.” This is not a “turning point” in Western relations with the Arab countries or the broader Muslim world (as some excitable commentators have suggested). The whole thing will blow over after a little while, just like the violent protests against Danish newspaper cartoons about Muhammad did six years ago. It is a tempest in a teapot.

Just another deal

Dear Editor, Most normal people would balk at agreeing to a deal without knowing what the contents were. If I agreed to a mortgage without seeing the text, knowing the interest rate, or any possible clauses in the agreement, normal people would shake their heads. After moving in and finding another family living in the basement, and hearing a tractor trailer parking in the driveway at 1 a.m. on a nightly schedule, they might say, “Stupid is as stupid does.” Along comes the Trans Pacific Partnership, TPP for short. The Canadian negotiators had been trying to get in on the deal for two years but not under U.S. terms. Harper apparently sent his Chief of Staff Nigel, to agree to anything the U.S. presented and we are now on a 90-day waiting period for the other partners to give the thumbs up or down. Canada has agreed to accept any text already agreed to by the other nine members. We have also agreed to abide by anything they include during the period from now until we are admitted to the table, all sight unseen The window opened for U.S. corporate representatives to insert outrageous clauses, which may destroy agricultural management programs etc., must seem surreal to their lawyers. The extreme secrecy means U.S. Senator Ron Wyden, who chairs the committee overlooking the TPP, has been denied access to the text of the U.S. proposals, while no fewer than 600 U.S. corporate representatives have full access. Guess then who benefits from this deal? When questioned on this paradox, the answer was after

the release of the “Free Trade Area of the Americas” text, it became impossible to complete the deal. Apparently if the public knows what shenanigans are going on they will rise up and try to stop it. To clarify: most of these countries already have trade agreements with one another; this is all about protecting the corporations. It’s called “investors rights,” or “taxpayers cover your pockets.” It involves the right to free access to markets, the right to sue governments for lost profits, extended terms of drug patent protection and a total ban on local job policies etc. Further, we the paying public are not to know what is in the deal for the next four years following the signing. Should it fall through? We will still not be allowed to see the proposed text for at least four years. Could the four-year term co-inside with the USA and Canadian political term of office? Why do we go through the charade of elections if our elected representatives do not even have the power to see the texts in documents committing Canada to unknown agreements for years to come? There is no length to this agreement, nor term where it would need to be renewed, this is it. “You don’t need to read it, just sign the thing.” For more on this and other farces, go to the CCPA Monitor. In case you missing something else from last week’s news, the USA just voted Mr. Harper as the “Best puppet the U.S. ever had” or was that “Statesman of the year.” Paul Whittaker, Gilmour

No NHL? Fine by me By Terry Bush EMC Editorial - Gary Bettman has been commissioner of the National Hockey League for close to 20 years now and what has he accomplished? His illustrious record so far includes three work stoppages including the only lost season on record in the history of major professional sports and we’re not quite sure how this season is going to end. Three strikes usually means you’re out. The man has managed to water down the league so much that what should be an exciting game on any given night, usually isn’t. But that’s to be expected in a league with enough top-notch talent to outfit maybe 20 teams but not 30. Bettman, the little man with the giant ego, would never consider putting a few teams on the chopping block because that would mean he’s failed in his mission to bring hockey to the United States, a country that would rather watch high school football than the NHL. Better to have teams founder in the U.S. than to move them to Canada. The GTA could easily support another team though the woeful Leafs wouldn’t like it. When you’re the only game in town, it doesn’t matter if you suck, people will still come out. Gary Bettman is the man under whose watch we enjoyed such great rule changes as the “five minutes for high sticking if you draw blood” rule that applied to everyone except Wayne Gretzky. And who can forget the multitude of disallowed goals during the “if any part of an opposing player’s body breaks the imaginary vertical wall outlined by the goal crease when the puck enters the net, the goal doesn’t count season” in which that rule was enforced for the entire year except when Brett Hull scored the Stanley Cup winning goal against the Buffalo Sabres. You know the hockey world truly hates Gary Bettman when someone like Teemu Selanne, one of the classiest and most talented players to ever lace up a pair of skates, said on his blog on Monday, “Bettman is certainly the NHL’s most hated person. He makes $8 million a year. Would Mr. Bettman be willing to give up his salary and give part of it to these poor teams? Hmm … interesting question.” Selanne was referring to the league’s current labour impasse. From the billions in NHL revenue each year, rich teams are required to share revenue with poorer teams. In a nutshell, the owners and their man Gary think the players should be contributing more to the pot. The players think they gave up enough in the last agreement. I won’t be shedding a tear for either side. Canada’s game has been stolen by rich American owners and their point man Gary. Most American fans will easily find something else to watch on Saturday and Sunday afternoons. Nothing much will probably happen until maybe the end of November because there’s no way on earth the NHL is going to screw up the very popular Winter Classic game especially when the game pits two original six teams against one another, the Leafs and the Red Wings. There is simply too much television exposure and money to be made on that one. So what can we do as fans? Well, the logical thing to do to get our hockey fix would be to find the next best thing in our area. The Belleville Bulls or the Peterborough Petes will offer exciting hockey without all those very tedious commercial breaks anyone attending a live NHL game is forced to suffer through. Tier II hockey is also a very good bang for the buck. Triple A or Minor Hockey for that matter is also very entertaining. There really is no sense pining for the NHL. They obviously don’t care about their fans as there is no reason this labour dispute couldn’t have been settled before training camps started. It’s all just a question of percentages. Two pens, one piece of paper and a table to slide that piece of paper back and forth on until a final figure is agreed upon. The only real casualty in our area is the cancellation of the Kraft Hockeyville pre-season game that was to be held in Belleville. A big loss for a lot of excited kids especially after all the work that went into Stirling’s Hockeyville bid but other parts of the show will go on. The Stanley Cup will be paraded through the streets of Stirling at long last. It made it into Stirling’s 395 neck of the woods last month when LA’s Brad Richardson had it for a day and took it by boat from his cottage on Oak Lake just south of town to the beach so the kids there could see it. We’ve been teased a couple of other times, first when Stirling’s Rob Ray was playing for the Sabres and when Pittsburgh won a few years back. Now we’ll all enjoy the real thing and a visit from a few NHL alumni to boot. And looking on the bright side, when that NHL preseason game does finally make it to town, we might be fortunate enough to be able to watch a better team than the Columbus Blue Jackets kick the Maple Leafs’ butts. And that will be a bonus. Northeast EMC - Thursday, September 20, 2012

Local business supports splash pad

EMC News - Marmora Community members of Marmora and Lake gathered to support their local Splash Pad Project at Theresa’s Family Restaurant in Marmora Saturday evening.  The outdoor barbeque raised $755 toward an anticipated goal of $50,000. Curtis Trimble, Youth Committee and Parks and Recreation, said the splash pad project is awaiting Trillium funding approval. “The Marmora Youth Committee has taken on fund raising for the extras; there will be additional costs, once the pad is built, for such things as furnishings

and change rooms.” Trimble added, that to date between $5,000 and $8,000 has been raised. “Local groups like the Lions and Legion, the car club and others have also committed to hold future events.” Theresa Stapley, her daughter Lyn and son Tim, closed down the restaurant at 2 p.m. to get ready for the 4 p.m. event. Volunteers from the Classic Cruisers car club, Mary Provost and Barrie Graley, pitched in with decoration and preparation. Curtis Trimble, Sarah Day, Greydon Hemel and Nathan Runions of the Marmora Youth Committee assisted

with decorations and odd jobs.  After a number of balloons and fun  flotation devices were blown up, volunteer Neil Derrett mounted the ladder to put the string of balloons into place. Gift bags of goodies and bubble-blowing tubes were gaily wrapped with water theme blue ribbons. Tim Stapley set up his DJ equipment and local musicians Stu Fisher, Jack Clemenger and Harvey Mills plugged in their microphones for an evening of food and fun.  Donations from Royal LePage, Drummond’s BMR,

Marmora Spa & Nails and many from Lyn Stapley, were raffled off, followed by a 50/50 draw.  Marmora and Lake Councillor Elaine Jones, who also sits on the Youth Committee, stopped by for the festivities.

“We have to give Theresa credit for all the things she has been doing for the community. This event is one of them. They have done a wonderful job.”  The popular restaurant has been known for years as

the Odd Cup Cafe operated by Theresa’s late brother, Joe Petipas. She took over the business after his passing. September 17 she hoisted her new sign renaming the business “Theresa’s Family Restaurant.”

Pumper failures and community success By Richard Turtle

EMC News - Madoc With the news that Centre Hastings is in need of a new pumper truck, Councilor Shelby Kramp-Neuman asked where the money will be coming from. At last week’s Centre Hastings council meeting, Kramp-Neuman noted, “we gave grace to go ahead and find pricing,” but asked why such a major purchase wasn’t in the budget. “We’re always cautious with the budget,” said Councillor Mike Kerby, but added, “this summer it’s been bad,” referring to unexpected pumper breakdowns and repairs. Noted Deputy-reeve Tom Simpson, “the department has been good at putting money away for capital investments,” adding they are

ROLAND NAEGELI

on budget. At a previous meeting council agreed to begin the purchase process, which could take a year. Another successful season at the skate park has drawn more interest from outside the area and KrampNeuman says it may be time to publish a how-to guide. The questions have arisen since the beginning and have come from likeminded communities interested in similar projects and all have been answered several times by several people, she says, but not in a single comprehensive package. Kramp-Neuman raised the notion as interest in the local success story continues to spread. Other community successes were also recognized by councillors who com-

DAVID HORNER

mended organizers and officials for their work on the Hastings County Plowing Match, the MMRS National Motocross Championships and the free Centre Hastings Rocks concert. However, Simpson did have some concerns about recycling and waste disposal following the Plowing Match. Weather delayed the resurfacing of the four corners in Madoc, says Public Works Superintendent Roger Taylor, as the scheduled removal of old pavement, requiring the closing of the intersection from 4 a.m. fell on a rain day. He told council last week the job will be completed soon. But the rain has been good news too, Taylor says, and while water levels remain low’ “the aquifers are recovering nicely,” after a

lengthy drought. And since posting the job for a full-time fire chief, Reeve Owen Ketcheson says, the applications have begun

to arrive. Council intends to fill the position before the end of the year. The municipality is also looking for a new library

CAO. After receiving the resignation of Susan Smith, council agreed to set up a committee to find a replacement.

Little Theatre to launch second season EMC Entertainment - Back in January, under the banner of Arts Centre Hastings, an exciting new venture began, the Madoc Little Theatre. As a member of the Toronto International Film Festival (or TIFF) Film Circuit, the Madoc Little Theatre is able to present critically acclaimed independent or Canadian feature films once a month at the Arts Centre for movie lovers.

For the months of Sep-

tember, October and November the Madoc Little Theatre will be offering a feature film on the last Monday of the month with show times at 2 and 7 p.m. Tickets prices will be $7 and $9 respectively.

Tweed Library offers program variety

The first meeting of the Tweed Contract Bridge club gathered at the Tweed Library Wednesday. Mary Rundle, Mary-Lou Munro, program developer Corinne Reidy and Bert Hielema enjoyed an afternoon playing their favourite game.

Northeast EMC - Thursday, September 20, 2012

EMC News - Tweed - A wide range of recreational and educational activities are being offered at the Tweed Library this fall. Under the New Horizons initiative, funded by the Government of Canada, these programs provide no-cost participation for young and old. This program began in July, yet many of the groups are still being formed at this time. In the educational field, courses such as creative writing or one-on-one computer training are made available for those whose interests fall in that category. For children younger than the Grade 3 level, where French is introduced in the classroom, a French exposure class will be offered. Program Developer Corinne Reidy explains, “Children will be more confident in their approach to a new language if they’ve had some acquaintance prior to the school program.” Recreational activities soon under way include musical instrument making and ballet lessons for the younger participants. Reidy is busy matching craft interest with the appropriate craft trainers, and fitting these activities into the fall schedule. Wherever interest in knitting, sewing, jewellery making, quilting are recognized, local people with such experience are sought to provide training and share their expertise. Creative art groups are also being planned and formed; this is where the list grows long. The web site, <www. tweedlibrary.ca/>, is the best source of information concerning this range of programs, and it is being updated as necessary. This past week, a group of residents interested in playing contract bridge met for an afternoon of their favourite card game. Although some had not played the game for a while, and others only occasionally, their interest was rekindled to return on a regular basis. One of the participants, Bert Hielema, admitted that he hadn’t sat at a bridge table for several decades, although he maintained an interest via the “hand of the day” in the newspaper. He then displayed a complete lack of “rust” as he skillfully completed a no trump contract. Mary-Lou Munro, as well, professed to have avoided playing for some time, yet wheeled in an awkward game contract with no apparent difficulty. Mary Rundle took over the duty of keeping score, inasmuch as she had brought a handy “Your Pocket Guide to Bridge.” All agreed that the initial meeting had been most enjoyable and expressed the wish that others would join them at subsequent gatherings, emphasizing that players of all skill levels are welcome to participate. Check the library web site, or call for details and time.

Beer Festival next month. When Curt Dunlop arrived for another visit to Farmtown Park prior to the hosting of the second annual food and drink festival, he brought along a bit of news about some visitors he invited. Entertainers scheduled to appear at the October 13 event include Winnipeg’s Del Barber and Newfoundland banjo player Old Man Luedecke, says the event’s organizer and Bracebrigde-based Griffin Gastropub partner. Of Barber, Dunlop notes, “you get nominated for a Juno [in 2011] and everything changes.” Delighted with the musical participants, he says music was a priority owing to addi-

tional government funding received this year. And with the hopes of drawing at least 1,000 visitors to the two scheduled tastings planned for the Saturday afternoon and evening (noon to 3 p.m. and 5 to 8 p.m.) the event will take up a little more space than last year. Dunlop was meeting with museum officials Sandy Donnan and Ron Reid to make some of the arrangements for the expanded festival. Instead of being held solely in Heritage Village, the facility’s reproduced streetscape, the museum will also offer access to four other buildings onsite. And while most of the vendors will be posted in Heritage Village, activities will also be going on

elsewhere. Along with some topranked musical entertainment, Dunlop says, the festival will feature locally grown foods as well as beers and wines from craft brewers and wineries nearby and from other parts of Ontario. Last year there were six breweries onsite with products for sampling with the number at least doubling this year, Dunlop says. There will also be significantly more local food vendors this year offering meat including lo-

cally smoked sausage and cured meats, cheese, apples and other produce as well as dishes served by Capers, Burger Revolution and Spring Brook Farms. Further information is available on the Internet at <hastingsbeerfestival. ca> where visitors can also order tickets at a 25 per cent discount ($40 regular price) until Sunday. Ticket price includes festival glass, entertainment, access to several of the museum’s exhibits and food and drink during the session.

“Cancer touches everyone,” she says. “It’s just a good cause.” Runners left the Stirling start point at 9 a.m. after a series of warm-up exercises and stretches, led by Ord in the parking lot in front of her gym. Members of the Stirling-Rawdon Fire De-

EMC News - Stirling When Shirley Anne Ord looked around and didn’t see something, she decided to make it happen. And last weekend nearly a dozen runners and about as many volunteers arrived at her Sao Fitness centre on North Street to take part in a Terry Fox Run through the village. Numerous runs are organized and held across the country to raise money for cancer research, increase awareness and promote health and fitness. But when Ord opened her business, there was no sign of the event in Stirling, she says. Her reasons for getting behind the annual cancer fund raiser were simple, she explains. It was fun. So after years of enjoyment at previous runs in Trenton, Ord says she decided to take it upon herself and host one. And in the end, she says, it wasn’t all that difficult and just as much fun as always “because we have so many

A Saturday “Beatle Brunch” will be held in the Empire Theatre lounges and there will be Beatles collectibles and merchandise on sale all weekend. Forgie said the festival will hopefully remain as an annual treat for the friendly city. The capacity of the theatre is set at 700 people so Forgie advised buying tickets in advance.

those killed. “I built this place from scratch,” he said, noting that it was his son and younger brother Stuart, [now deceased], who decided to turn a beekeeping hobby into a business. “We’re the only commercial beekeeping operation in Northumberland County,” he said. “It’s costly but we’re the only beekeeper for miles

R0011486173

EMC News - Warkworth There’s something abuzz at Campbell’s Honey House as Hugh Campbell and his son Peter gather bee hives for the second and final extraction of the season. It’s a process that has been going on at the honey house for the past 30 years. “We have 1,200 colonies and each colony has about 100,000 bees,” said Hugh as he keeps an eye on the extraction from the honeycombs. It’s a process that has been going on since the Stone Age. Honey found in the tombs of Egyptian pharaohs tasted by archaeologists has been found to be edible. Not that the honey at Campbell’s Honey House sticks around that long. Each summer it is shipped out in drums that hold 600 pounds of the sweet nectar. “We ship as much as we can produce. It goes to people that sell to the stores mostly,” said Hugh as he checked the temperature of the honey filling one of their barrels. “Temperature is very important. People who come here to buy our honey want to know, is this honey pasteurized. We tell them no, it’s not,” he commented. “The thermometer there says it’s 98 degrees … We try to keep it under 120 degrees.” Pasteurization of honey occurs at a much higher temperature. “All this honey is natural. It is 100 per cent what the bees bring in,” he said, adding, “Once you pasteurize it you take the goodness out of it.” “We think our honey is the best in the world because it’s pure and it’s not blended with anything,” he added. But temperature is not the only thing the Campbells watch closely. They monitor their bees as well. “Last year was a very poor year because most of our bees died over the winter,” said Peter. “It is a problem all over the world now, keeping them alive,” he added. In fact the deaths of honeybees was so widespread that the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs to Ontario’s sent a survey to commercial beekeepers.  The winter 2010/2011 level of honey bee colony mortality among Ontario commercial beekeepers was determined to be 43 per cent. For the Campbells it was closer to 50 per cent of their bees, 600 colonies were killed. Everything from varroa mites to pesticides is being blamed and it’s happening worldwide. “Nobody seems to know what’s killing them. The universities are studying it,” said Hugh pragmatically, explaining they had to raise their own bees from their existing colonies to replace

Liverpool’s 50th anniversary celebrations for the Beatles

By John M. Smith

EMC Lifestyles - Back in September of 1962, John, Paul, George, and Ringo recorded Love Me Do, the song that first catapulted “the Fab Four” into fame and fortune, and that makes this September of 2012 half a century since the Beatles really emerged onto the world stage. As a result of this event, their hometown, Liverpool, is celebrating with a number of 50th anniversary specials – including a “Love Me Do Weekend” October 5, 6 and 7. Thousands are expected to attend this special weekend event at Liverpool’s Albert Dock. After all, October 5 is the very day this debut single was released back in 1962, and organizers hope fans will gather in Liverpool on that special day and partake in what’s hoped will be a record-setting sing-along of the classic song. There’ll also be a variety of musical per-

formances held and special food and drink offers. As one executive put it, “no self-respecting Beatles fan will want to miss out on this once in a lifetime opportunity to be a part of Beatles history.” I’m dating myself when I say that I remember the rise of the Beatles very well. I considered them “my group,” and I eagerly followed their first appearances on the long gone Ed Sullivan Show on television. I bought that first big album, Please Please Me, which included their first hit single, Love Me Do. Other albums and purchases were to follow for me, for I became a part of “Beatlemania” and the Beatles went on to become (arguably?) the most popular and influential pop group of all time. When I eventually went to Liverpool, years later, I discovered the Beatles, although long ago disbanded, were still a very major draw for tourists,

This photo of the Beatles arriving in North America is found in Liverpool’s ‘the Beatles Story’ museum.

FRANKLIN COACH & TOURS

and this sustained popularity finally led the city to wisely “jump onto this bandwagon” and go with it.  Therefore, I found many Beatles-themed tourist attractions in Liverpool, including museums, statues, bars, hotels, restaurants, and tours. I checked out “the Beatles Story,” a fantastic museum chronicling their history, and I visited “the Hard Day’s Night Hotel,” with its Beatles’ memorabilia and its statues of the “Four Lads Who Shook the World” on the roof. I visited the “Rubber Soul Oyster Bar,” the “Cavern Pub,” with its statue of John in front, the “Lucy in the Sky Restaurant,” located on the site of the original “Cavern Club,” where the Beatles began their career, and the Grapes, a pub where the Beatles often had a few pints between sets at the Cavern. I found a “Fab 4” store, a “From Me to You Beatles Superstore,” a “Fab

Four Taxi Tour,” and a “Magical Mystery Tour.” I searched for the boyhood homes of both John Lennon and Paul McCartney, and I checked out many of the memorable Liverpool locations that appeared in their lyrics, including “the long and winding road” that led to “Strawberry Field” near where John was raised by his Aunt Mimi, and “Penny Lane” where I found there was still a barbershop, a bank, and “a shelter in the middle of the roundabout”— just as described in the lyrics from so many years ago. I even found a sculpture of pieces of luggage, entitled “Liverpool: A Case History,” located near the boys’ schools (and designed by John King, a Canadian) and a statue of “Eleanor Rigby,” dedicated to “all the lonely people.” I also learned that Paul supposedly worked on the song Lovely Rita, Meter Maid after receiving a parking ticket! City Councillor Joe Anderson said: “This is a hugely significant year in the history of the Beatles and it’s one Liverpool couldn’t let pass by without a huge celebration … We should never underestimate the power of The Beatles to attract visitors to the city, and this year-long celebration will bring even more fans to Liverpool, which will bring a much-needed boost to our local economy.” Back in July, the annual “Mathew Street Festival” highlighted the Beatles’ 50th anniversary celebrations, as did “Beatles Day” (which was held on July 10 this year). I had the good fortune to be in Liverpool for the very first official “Beatles Day” celebration in 2008. Another of this year’s special events still to come is a one-man play celebrating the life of Brian Epstein, the

A statue of Eleanor Rigby in Liverpool.

Beatles’ original manager and mastermind. Epstein The Play will be the first major production in the new Liverpool Epstein Theatre and will run between November 15 and December 1. Yet another scheduled event, on December 7, is the “Bootleg Beatles,” a tribute band that will perform a two-hour show that features Beatles’ songs. On December 8, the annual “John Lennon Peace Vigil” will take place at Liverpool’s European Peace Monument on the anniversary of John Lennon’s assassination in New York. Also on that same weekend (De-

cember 7 to 9), the Liverpool Philharmonic Hall will celebrate Beatles’ music. If you can’t make it to Liverpool, but enjoy the Beatles’ music, then you can always participate in our very own Empire Theatre’s “Beatles Weekend,” which will begin in Belleville on October 19. And if you do plan to visit Liverpool itself in the near future, be sure to check out its John Lennon Airport, too. Here you’ll find a yellow submarine and a line from Imagine used as the airport’s motto: “Above us only sky.”

For a centre our size to accomplish that much success from a second entry team was outstanding and we feel this selection blueprint was a big part of it,” added president John Oke. CHMHA will also continue to give all their players every advantage possible by continuing to offer the Inside Edge Power Skating program with instructor John Boultbee beginning on September 22, as well as clinics for goalies.

year by then president Jason Bailey, and was a big part in the unprecedented success the Grizzlies had last season. In past years the tryouts would be carried out over a week or two, and then the regular season was nearly upon us. In contrast, this year several teams have had four tryouts, a team practice and two exhibition games all within the first week. “Getting the selection process over quickly not only helps our first entry teams to get off to an early start but it is also a real advantage to our AE teams to find coaches so they can start to implement their system quickly” says Novice assistant coach Ken Dostaler.

EMC Sports - The Belleville Bulls unveiled their captaincy for the 2012-2013 season on Monday, naming third-year centreman Brendan Gaunce captain along with Stephen Silas,  Brady Austin, Michael Curtis and Joseph Cramarossa serving as assistants. Gaunce was impressive as a 17-year-old, scoring 20 times while adding 48 assists in 68 games. The Markham native was drafted 26th overall by the Vancouver Canucks in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft and signed an entry level contract with the club on August 13. Gaunce not only exhibits leadership qualities on the ice for the Bulls, but is recognized as one of the elite young players in Canadian junior hockey. He was nominated as the team’s representative for the OHL’s Bobby Smith Award in 2011, given to the academic player of the year and will

attend Queen’s University this season. Formerly the second overall pick in the 2010 OHL Priority Selection, Gaunce has developed his game on and off the ice over the past two seasons in Belleville. “Brendan’s progression as a leader has been evident in the time he has spent here and he’s brought a high level of maturity and presence to our group this season,” said Bulls Head Coach and General Manager George Burnett on Monday. “He has high expectations for himself and for the team this season, and he’s always been the type to lead by example.” The Bulls also named their team of assistant captains on Monday, with four veterans sharing the duties this season. Stephen Silas, Brady Austin, Michael Curtis and Joseph Cramarossa will rotate wearing the “A” at home and on the road.

Quinte Red Devils report The Free Flow Petroleum Atoms took part in the Peterborough Early Bird Tournament over the weekend and put together a solid effort and very respectable results in their season opening tournament. Game one, the Red Devils started out strong and hammered the Markham Majors by a score of 6 - 1.  Scoring for the Red Devils were Marshall Mcfarland with two and Jacob Gilbert, Cayde Culhane, Adam Thistlethwaite, and Josh Quick with

lone markers. In net, Matthew Tovell was solid as he turned away several of the Markham Majors shooters. Game two saw Quinte face off against the Grey Bruce Highlanders.  Grey Bruce  skated away with a 4 - 3 victory. Scoring for the Red Devils was Jacob Gilbert with three. Assists come from Ben Duval, Mac Morrish, and Marshall Mcfarland. Between the pipes was Ethan Mcdonnell who put in a solid effort as well. Saturday morning, the Red Devils ran into a very big, fast and strong team from Brantford.  They lost

6 - 2. Scoring for Quinte was Jacob Gilbert with both goals. The lone assist came from Jaxen Boyer. In net for the tough loss was Tovell. Game four brought on the Burlington Eagles. Quinte pounded Burlington by a score of 3 - 0 in what proved to be their best game of the tournament. Scoring for the Red Devils were Jacob Gilbert, Maddy Wheeler, and Gavin Stephenson. Assists came from Josh Quick with two and Ben Duval and Gilbert each adding one apiece. In net for the shutout was Ethan Mcdonnell who played

great to backstop his team to the win. Quinte finished the tournament with a very respectable 2 - 2 record but were unfortunately eliminated and will not make it to Sunday.

The Duvanco Homes Minor Bantams faced off in an exhibition double header with the Barrie Minor Colts this past weekend. The teams played two very close games with Barrie winning the opener 3 - 2. In the first game Colin VanDenHurk and Brock Bronson scored

Game two moved to Stirling and the game raised $117 for the Stirling Hockeyville fund. Nick Hoey scored both Quinte goals and Mackenzie Warren, Jakob Brahaney and Ryan Smith contributed assists. Jett Alexander earned the shutout in goal. The team opens the regular season this Saturday on the road in Lindsay against the Central Ontario Wolves.

Brown took the bronze medal in the Gold Fleet of the regatta and Cuerrier captured the silver medal in the Silver Fleet. Both sailors represented Quinte SailAbility which operates from the CFB Trenton Yacht Club. Mobility Cup is a regatta attracting top level Martin 16 sailors. This year the regatta was held in Ottawa with 32 competitors from across Canada and the United States in the two fleets. Martin 16 sailboats are specially adapted boats for people with disabilities and are similar to some of those used in the recent Paralympic Games. In addition to his bronze medal, Brown was also awarded a special trophy as Most Successful New Competitor in the Gold fleet. This was particularly thrilling for him as it was his first competitive outing in eight years.  Cuerrier battled tough competition and overcame a slow start in the early races by powering his way through to second place overall. This tops a successful racing season for him having earlier in the season won the Martin 16 Ontario

Skies over Stirling abuzz with small planes By Richard Turtle

EMC News - Stirling - The local airport was buzzing with activity this weekend as members of the Oak Hills Flying Club hosted a weekend fly-in. Organizer Jim Halls says weather was ideal for much of the weekend with flights arriving and departing through much of Saturday and Sunday. “I think it’s been pretty good,” says Halls of the first-time event that attracted pilots and an array of aircraft from other parts of the province. As well, local vendors offered lunches, entertainment and 50/50 tickets were available and

flights in an out provided sightseeing tours for several visitors. And while they have held similar fly-ins in the past, he says, last weekend’s event was the first of such duration and scope. While organizers had anticipated more aircraft than the dozen or so that arrived each day, weather played a part with unsettled skies and cooler temperatures arriving late last week. But the weekend skies cleared offering local residents a chance to learn more about the facilities here as well as the services available at the small airport. Christine Kilgore, who along with Halls owns and

Hayden Pfeiffer was among the visitors during this week’s fly-in at Stirling Airport. Here he gets the feel for Jim Davidson’s ultralight, while remaining firmly on the ground. Photo: Richard Turtle

operates Stirling Ultralights, was eager to take to the skies over the weekend in the couple’s Highlander, providing air transport with perfect visibility and a bird’s eye view of the township below. And as the planes came and went, photographers and spectators lined sections of the runway for a close-up look of some of the more in-

teresting aircraft while cars lined the road nearby and visitors walked among the parked planes. The airport show also featured representatives providing information on various clubs and groups affiliated with the airport including instructors, aircraft builders and mechanics and well as the pilots themselves. And the air traffic around

Stirling has increased significantly in the last five years with several new additions to the local facility as well as many new aircraft. It’s currently the 40 and over age group who are showing the most interest, says Kilgore. While younger members are encouraged, she says, flying does pose a few financial obstacles when children and other earthbound dis-

tractions are more pressing priorities. But now a pilot for six years and a member of that 40 and over age group, she admits there is nothing quite like the freedom of flight. And last weekend at the Stirling Airport, regardless of age or experience, there were plenty of opportunities to learn how to get a flying career off the ground.

Mini stick rink the real deal for young people By Bill Freeman

EMC News - Norwood The rink inside the rink is going to be the talk of the local hockey world this season. The Asphodel-Norwood Community Centre unveiled its new mini stick rink last week and it’s already a magnet of activity for youngsters visiting the arena with family and friends or simply dropping by to ply their mini sticks on the 26-foot by 13-foot miniature rink that’s been installed in the standing concourse above the section six seating area. “I’m extremely pleased with it,” community centre manager Greg Hartwick said. “The kids come in here go right up there and play. They’ve never seen anything like this before,” Hartwick told the Northwest EMC. “They make a beeline up there.” Hartwick says that nonhockey playing visitors to the community centre are just as likely to be playing in the mini sticks rink. During a recent tourney kids were “playing constantly in it all day.” “It’s good to have another avenue for the kids.” The idea of building a mini stick rink took form after it was decided that the Euro Hornets team would not be travelling to Europe. The Euro Hornets had raised $9,085 before the plug was pulled on the tour. The majority of the people

The new mini stick rink at the Asphodel-Norwood Community centre has already become a popular destination for local children and those visiting from out of town. Photo: Bill Freeman

involved in the fund raising decided that it would be a worthwhile community project to invest that money in the miniature rink. Since that decision, Hartwick says they have had a steady stream of donations to the project. There was also a con-

tribution from the David Andrews memorial hockey tourney held last spring. Community Centre staff and volunteers helped put the rink together. To highlight the Euro Hornets contribution there is a collection of Euro memorabilia hanging on the wall

behind the mini rink glass. “They’re still “a little short” with fund raising for the $13,565 rink, Hartwick adds. “It’s not a bad size,” he says of the rink. “The netting was a struggle at times but it all turned out okay.” They are still awaiting

three sheets of glass which couldn’t be installed because they were an “inch off” the correct size. Hartwick will post the rules that apply to the mini stick rink which include no slap shots, no pucks and no regular hockey sticks. The community centre is going

to order plastic mini sticks emblazoned with the Hornets logo. “There have been no issues at all; the kids kind of police it themselves. I think most kids are pretty good about sharing.” The rink is monitored by a camera as well centre staff.

A new beginning for local athlete By Ray Yurkowski

EMC News - Trenton - Local strongman Rich Machell is pumped. And for a guy who was willing to give up on the world of competition just a couple of months back, it’s a renaissance. “I was close to giving up on strongman,” he said. “The fact that it is not a drug-tested sport and guys will do anything to win went against what I stand for.” Machell mentions competing at drug-tested powerlifting events where he set four Canadian records and all he wants now is a level playing field, a situation where everyone has the same opportunity. And that can’t happen when you’re competing against performance-enhancing drugs. “Competitors on steroids have a huge advantage,” he said. “Steroids break records - records that someone not on steroids could never hope to beat.” Enter the power of Google. An online search led Machell to the World’s Natural Strongman Federation (WNSF), based in Hungary. Since 2006, the organization has been recognized as the natural strongman sport governing body for steroidfree athletes. Their mission:

to encourage participation at all levels and develop athletes of national and international calibre. Their goal is to introduce strongman events as a demonstration

sport at a future Olympics. Machell contacted WNSF and the reply included an invitation to their international competition at Calgary on September 29, the

first ever in Canada and fifth this year worldwide, following sanctioned events in Australia, Sweden, France and England. “This is a huge step in my strongman competition career and I couldn’t be more proud to represent Canada against drug-free strongman from around the world,” he said. “It’s a long way to go and I really haven’t had a lot of time to train, but I’m not going to miss this opportunity. I couldn’t turn it down.” “I want to be able to tell people you don’t have to cross that line,” he added. “To able to do what I do without performance-enhancing drugs … I want every high school student out there to know that. I want everybody to know there is an alternative. You have choices in life.”

The primary reason why performance-enhancing drugs are outlawed in professional sports is that they give users an unfair advantage over the rest of the field. And with a high-school-age daughter at home he wonders, “how can I take drugs and, at the same time, tell her to stay off drugs?” Why the interest in strongman events, given its list of bizarre events: lifting logs, cars or huge stones, flipping giant tires or pulling vehicles? “A lot of people don’t understand it,” he said. “My wife thinks I’m nuts, but it’s doing something others can’t. “It’s a dream. I can perform in a sport I train for; I eat, sleep and breathe. There’s nothing else I’d rather be doing.” Strongmen have been

a fascination since ancient history. Mythology gave us Hercules along with Atlas, the primordial Titan who supported the heavens, and feats of strength have been around since the first Olympic Games. In the mid-19th century, there was quite a bit of money to be made for professional strongmen, at county fairs and town theatres. Louis Cyr, a Canadian regarded as the father of modern strength events, lifted a horse clear off the ground at his first-ever strongman competition in Boston, at the age of 17. But for the 29-year-old local competitor, a trip to Alberta represents a turning point. “It’s a new beginning,” he said. “I’m in a good place right now and now it’s show time.”

New board means symphony survives billed as “a farewell concert” which would be offered free to the public, after which a general meeting would vote on the dissolution plan. That concert is expected to be removed from the agenda once the new board starts preparing for a new concert season. Still unknown is the situation of long-timed conductor Gordon Craig, who was expected at the meeting but did not show up.  In her farewell speech, Lisa Kemp, flutist, praised Craig’s work with the symphony over some 20 years and commented how the orchestra’s sound had improved “tremendously.” She also reviewed her own long association with the orchestra, starting as a youthful student flutist. “I am thrilled  to see eight people coming forward for a new board. The community is lucky to have the symphony,” Apart from entertaining many thousands of audience members over the years, the

symphony has served the entire community as a cultural resource for training for amateur and youthful musicians. A number of former players have gone on to successful professional music careers.

EMC News - Belleville A crowded annual general meeting of the Quinte Symphony Corporation Sunday evening saw the 52-year-old organization get a reprieve from a planned dissolution. Eight volunteers stepped forward in Bridge Street Church Sills Auditorium to form a new board after the previous board resigned en masse.  Before resigning, the former board had compiled a plan for dissolution which was to have been presented at the meeting if a new board could not be formed. The new board includes Belleville Councillor Jodie Jenkins and Quinte Health Care staff member Kevin Jackson, and is expected to meet within days to elect officers and plan a strategy to get the music performance group up and running again as soon as possible. That will include an intensive fund-raising effort to get the board’s finances on a solid footing. Part of the former board’s exit plan included what was

EMC Business - Quinte West - Trenval has had a very busy and successful 25 years. Past board members and guests gathered at the Ramada on September 13 to celebrate its achievements with a dinner. Director Bruce Davis and Chair Glenn Kozak invited members to give tribute to the success of the business. This included Peter Briscoe, Eben James Jr., Bob LaFrance, Jack Dingle, Chris Herrington, Doug Law, Gerrit DeBruyn, Jack McFadden, Bob Rowbotham, Rosemary Davis, David Valcamp, Tom Shillington, Jacques Pilon, Bob Burkitt, Joe Fernandes, Ray Goulet, Glenn LeClair, David Wilson, Rick Barfitt, Derrick Morgan, Carl Swan, Lionel Bourgeois and Karen Theriault. The members also recognized those deceased. A moment of silence was held for Jack Gibbons. “He had looked forward to being here,” Bruce Davis said. Other deceased board members included Doug Whitley, William McIlveen, Roy Rittwage, Tom Nobles, Brian Todd, John Sager, Alan Lawrence, Frank Hamilton and Ralph Weaver. Mayor John Williams said Trenval has a great legacy and has helped so many entrepreneurs. “It’s a true success story,” he said. “They have helped small businesses and supported thousands of jobs.” Trenval Business Development Corporation started at 5 Stewart Street in Trenton in 1987. Now it has its own office at Loyalist College and has nine partners. A grand opening will be held October 15, the beginning of Small Business Week. Northumberland Quinte West MP Rick Norlock presented a certificate to chair Glenn Kozak for Trenval, saying it had a quarter of a century of positive influence on the area. Prince Edward Hastings MP Daryl Kramp said not many organizations operate as well as Trenval. “It has been a phenomenal success,” he said. Kozak noted that Trenval had given out 650 loans worth $25 million in the past 25 years and had impacted 3,000 jobs. There are currently 350 loans in place and $1.5 million reinvested each year. “Success stories continue to grow,” he said.

LIFESTYLES

The Good Earth: EMC Lifestyles - As always, Gentle Reader, gardening should not be a chore. Once you begin thinking along those lines you need to adapt some practices. There is a bit of fall work approaching and it will require some physical effort. Perhaps this is the year you invite family to help you. If you do this, be prepared. Do the thinking before your kin show up so you can accomplish everything that needs doing, so their efforts are focussed on the task on hand and not dashing to the garden centre, and so that the incredible harvest feast you prepared, with the help of other kinfolk, can be truly enjoyed. If you are hiring someone to help, doesn’t matter if it’s the kids next door or

a professional outfit, being prepared is still important. Be clear in what it is you want done and the manner by which you want it done. At appropriate times, remembering that time is money, offer the workers a beverage and maybe even a small snack (homemade cookies are always welcomed). It is surprising how many of my professional colleagues mention this when they come to the wholesale counter. Okay, to business: Task # 1 Relax, your lawn is not in as bad a shape as you think it is. Task #2 Get busy, your lawn needs your help right now. For those of us who did let our lawns go dormant this summer, we were probably

Reality Check:

Sheila Wray Gregoire EMC Lifestyles - The world is filled with so much beauty. Is there anything as adorable as a baby’s chubby wrists? Or as heart stopping as the first kiss with someone you love? Walking out in nature is a feast

of beauty, too: the rainbow after the storm; the bird songs that announce the arrival of spring; the mountains that steal one’s breath away. If one is to believe in God—and I do—then I think these little glimpses of our natural world show us something fundamental about him. God’s actually pretty good. That is not to say that life is always trouble free, but I wonder how many of our hardships are really God’s fault, and how many are simply the stuff of life? A good friend of mine, in his forties, was just diagnosed with cancer. Earlier this month our family marked the sixteenth anniversary of my baby boy’s death.

Early fall tasks

not prepared for the exuberant emergence of crabgrass. We might be intellectually aware that this warm season annual prays to the gardening gods for such a drouthy summer and we know that they have literally millions of seeds laying about on each and every lawn in Canada (except for the one I saw in Glover’s Tickle, Newfoundland, which was a jumble of rocks, all painted green). As daunting as it might appear today, normal lawn care practices will have the balance set aright by next spring. Once the lawn has “greened up,” give it a light raking and hand pull any broadleaf weeds that might have crept into the mix; thistles, henbit, and chicory have had a good summer. So, top dress and over-

seed this fall. My suggestion is that you take a close look at fescue blends, they are not as showy as bluegrasses but they tolerate both heat and drought better, require less water and will grow in poorer soils. As well, they need less nitrogen and phosphorous. Next spring; apply corn gluten as a pre-emergent herbicide to take care of crabby’s progeny. Task#3 Enjoy your vegetable garden’s bounty. If you don’t have one, or need to supplement the quantity, go to your local farmers’ markets and/or search out farm gate opportunities.  A “farm gate” operation is where you can go directly to the farm to purchase food from the grower. Folks, this is really important. We need to sup-

port our country neighbours. They need our help, and we need theirs: “Farmers Feed Cities” is a truism, let’s make sure that it is our farmers who are feeding us. A Gentle Reader, Juanita Swayze, will back me up on this. Task#4  Start dividing your perennials and ornamental grasses now. Yes, you can do them later and yes; you can do them next spring but now is the best time. Why not start with day lilies or any perennial that has finished flowering or does not have fall interest? Task #5 Start planting spring bulbs now. In fact if you divide your perennials and plant the bulbs at the same time you might confuse Sammy Squirrel. Task#6

Dan Clost Take notes. For example, I noticed that lavender, Diamond Frost euphorbia and sedum thrived in our garden this summer while many others consigned themselves to the composter. Those plants are on my shopping list. By the way, so are pansies. We have two containers in which they bloomed all year long. Plan your work, spread it out, enjoy what you are doing.

What a beautiful world Life is certainly full of pain. Yet perhaps the reason we recognize the pain and rage at it is primarily because we also know joy, and have come to expect it. If life weren’t usually sweet, would the pain be as great? Even those who don’t believe in God would, I think, look at the evidence and conclude that life is indeed supposed to be lovely. All of these thoughts were going through my head last week on the anniversary of September 11. When stories of heroism and bravery and generosity hit the airwaves again, it brought tears to my eyes. After all, it is often in the midst of ugliness that beauty is most apparent. The people who carried a man in a wheelchair down seventy flights of stairs; the firefighters who fought to free a seriously injured woman, and lost their lives in the process; even the generous Newfoundlanders who found their towns inundated with stranded passengers, and took them into their homes—all of these responses show our essential goodness. North America reacted to horrible acts of violence by displaying, instead, beauty. Then last week, after we

had listened to these stories anew, violence erupted again, as fanatics in the Middle East decided to attack American embassies, killing four in Libya. And once again, they did it in the name of God, under the terrorist flag of Al-Qaeda. The real work of God is in creating, not destroying. It’s in bringing forgiveness and healing, not in killing and maiming. It’s in what our soldiers do protecting the innocent and standing up for freedom, rather than what their soldiers do in targeting the innocent and eliminating freedom.

I’m sure these fanatics think that they are doing the work of God, but I’d ask them to open their eyes and look around at the world. Can a God who made the Grand Canyon, and the coral reef, and a baby’s chuckle be the same God who wants you to kill indiscriminately? Do you really think you’re doing God a favour? Can’t you see that with every act of terror you solidify our determination to never believe what you believe? I understand the urge to justify one’s culture, or to try to preserve what one

has, or to attack others who seem to have more than you. What I don’t understand is thinking that any of that has anything to do with God. And to those who are tempted to dismiss God altogether because people do such awful things in his name: just look at the beauty in the world. That tells us far more about God than anything that involves machine guns or slitting people’s throats. And perhaps if we all opened our eyes more to beauty, there would be far less horror in this world that we share.

Historical Society looking for old railway photos By Bill Freeman

EMC News - Hastings Hastings has a rich lumber and milling history but it was also a busy railway centre yet there are surprisingly few photos that document that part of the village’s history. The Hastings Historical Society is actively looking for old photographs and pictures that provide a glimpse of the railway side of the

area’s history. “It’s still a rarity to see photos of the Hastings railway station,” says Historical Society member Jim Coveney who is an inveterate and determined collector of historical post cards related to the village and area. “I’ve been scanning EBay for ten years and I’ve only ever seen one,” Coveney told the Northwest EMC. “We’re still having difficulty finding railway pictures,” he said. “It was very much at the heart of our thriving municipality. Every Saturday night people would come to Hastings to see who was getting off that train. It was a meeting place.” It is odd that they have

not been able to discover more train-related photos, he admits, given that Hastings was a “well-photographed community. “Hastings was a great target for photographers and post card people.” The HHS does have a large collection of photos which has formed part of their popular calendar series and now a well-received set of post cards that feature old photographs of local landmarks and events. “We’re finding a fairly enthusiastic reception to our own post cards even though this is not an era of postcard sending.” What they would like is to be able to add some railway photos to that collection.

Wooler Hall Green Space to be turned into a park EMC News - Wooler Playground equipment is to be installed at the Wooler Green Space with funds to be allocated in the 2013 capital program. “Council approved the demolition of the Wooler Hall due to increasing costs to maintain, and reduced use of this property,” said Chris Angelo, director Public Works and Environmental Services. “The city has decided to create a green space at this location.” On June 28 about 75 letters were sent to residents in the village of Wooler surrounding the Wooler Hall, requesting their input about whether they would like playground

equipment installed. There were 36 responses notifying the city there were 18 children between the ages of one to 11 and seven over the age of 12, two between 11 and 13 and five over 16 years of age. There were responses from eight grandparents who indicated that children would benefit from the park. Some of the responses requested a basketball court that could be converted to an ice rink in winter, a tennis court, skate park, swings and playground equipment, picnic table, benches, flag pole, picnic shelter, garden with benches and plaque, more trees, garbage container and the white pine tree preserved in the memory of

Brighton Legion says thanks

the Women’s Institute. Angelo noted the cost to include accessible playground equipment is about $60,000 to $80,000. The cost to construct a basketball court is about $40,000 (84

x 50) or $21,000 (42x50). Neither cost includes demolition of the existing hall or asphalt paving of the parking lot or additional facilities or greenery. Chuck Naphan com-

mented at the Public Works committee meeting that the demographics of Wooler have changed over the years. “There are a lot of children now,” he said, “including military families.”

Angelo said the responses indicated that a playground is needed and that the ball diamond is too far to walk. The road and sidewalk improvements make the playground more accessible.

Ag community celebrates pioneers, leaders

EMC News - Stirling - The Quinte Agricultural Wall of Fame is getting mighty crowded. Organizers of the Farmtown Park-based commemorative exhibit held their sixth annual induction ceremonies last weekend honouring seven area agriculturalists, including a pair of husband and wife partnerships. Wall Committee Chair Jim Dalrymple welcomed a crowd of about 100 visiting inductees, family and friends to the museum’s Heritage Village last Sunday afternoon for the ceremonies which were also attended by area members of parliament Daryl Kramp and Rick Norlock who presented inductees with official con-

gratulations from Queen’s Park and Ottawa. Committee members were also a part of the presentation team. This year’s inductees include Elmer Laver, George Reynolds, Bruce and Edith Murray, Robert and Evelyn Burkitt and John Watson. Laver began farming in Northumberland County in 1947 and, explained presenter Harry Danford, was a pioneer in the use of fertilizer on potatoes, grain and corn. In 1972 he won the high yield corn competition with a yield of 156 bushels per acre. He also served as a municipal official on Percy Township Council. Reynolds, who was presented with his honour by committee member Dennis Dick, began farming with

his father in Prince Edward County and later went on to become one of the co-founders of Reynolds Brothers Inc., specializing in canning crops and cash crops. Reynolds Brothers now has over 5,000 acres of crops in the Quinte area as well as 6,000 acres in western Ontario. The late Bruce and Edith Murray were members of the Ontario and National Ayrshire Associations as well as founding members of the Hastings County Milk Producers, explained presenter Frank Forestell, and as farmers were also committed to the community around them. Bruce graduated from the Ontario Veterinary College at the University of Guelph and at the height of his career was overseeing the health of 6,000 dairy cows in Rawdon Township. Robert and Evelyn Burkitt were described by presenter Gayle Grills as community leaders whose influence over a course of decades played a major role in the success of several local organizations and events. Actively involved with the Quinte Exhibition and Hastings County Plowing Match, “they have motivated others to work toward common goals for their community.” The final inductee of the day was tobacco farmer John Watson (1910-1977) who was a noteworthy first in

And while the crop has declined in popularity, she said, “it had been an integral part of the County agricultural scene.” Watson’s son John, along with family members, accepted the award grateful for the recognition of his late father. Dalrymple noted that nominations are now being accepted for next year’s ceremonies with a deadline of May 1 and encouraged submissions from the agricultural community. Noting that

In future, photographs will be displayed with the information previously available alongside the image presented in a nearby book, on audio and on the Internet. In his closing remarks, Barrett also spoke of the importance of recognizing area farmers as well as the importance of the agricultural industry here. And he offered words of congratulations and special thanks to Jim Dalrymple for spearheading the Wall of Fame adding, “there is no better ambassador for agriculture.” The comment drew applause with several members of the audience standing in acknowledgement.
