When prompted for a hint of the winning recipe, Riley recited an undisclosed ratio of tangy herbs and spices in a Jack Daniels solution, preceded by a dashing dry rub (including sumac) applied after a broil of enchanting flavours (cinnamon was one). The Kiwanis Club returned for its second year on the grills with newcomers the Centre Hastings Snowmobile Club, Drum Nation Festival, and Madoc’s Wesleyan-Free Methodist Church. Other non-profit groups played a role in filling out the venue. Heart of Hastings Hospice sold desserts, Foundations Youth Centre sold cold drinks, and private vendors were invited to set up shop. Derrick Beckford did an excellent job on stage/sound production for performances by Colleen MacAlister with Leah Lebow, Andy Farrington, the trio of Norm, Heather and Al, and a wrapup by Tightrope.

EMC News - Stirling Students, parents and teachers flocked to class last Thursday evening as staff and volunteers hosted the year’s introductory Barbeque and Meet the Teacher at Stirling’s three schools. Many parents who arrived at Stirling Senior School, however, were greeted by

teacherless classrooms. Hastings Prince Edward District School Board (HPEDSB) officials were made aware of the decision by some teachers to skip the school function but only after the fact, says HPEDSB Communications Officer Kerry Donnell. When asked about the notable absenteeism at Stirling Senior dur-

ing a scheduled open house at all three schools, Donnell noted, “We heard the same thing,” adding of recent job action “It’s the individual teacher’s decision [to attend and] not school by school.” The decision by some teachers to participate or not participate in afterschool activities has arisen as the result of unresolved

contract issues. On the other side of town, classes were in session. Beginning at 4:30 p.m., dozens of students along with parents and families, began gathering on Church Street for the barbeque hosted prior to the open house that began at 6 p.m. and continued until 7 p.m. Kim Sharpe, one of sev-

eral SEARCH volunteers in charge of feeding the large crowds, says the organization is continuing its fund-raising efforts for playground equipment, which will all be relocated to the new Stirling school, as well as other community projects. And it was a busy night at the barbeque

EMC News - Madoc - Five competitors in Madoc’s second annual Ribfest held their positions in spite of occasional drizzle and gusts of wind, as did musicians, artists and vendors at Centre Hastings Family park Saturday. The annual event designed to benefit local nonprofit groups and support Arts Centre Hastings, offers entrants a five-way split of profits from the day, giving first place winner the silver Ribbler Cup and $200 cash. Arts Centre Hastings (ACH) competes equally. This year Peter Millican of Queensboro, who formerly ran his own catering company, volunteered to be lead chef for ACH. It was a winning move. The opinion of four judges gave his team thumbs up. Jim Smith, chair of ACH board said three of the judges were from out of town and one local. “Judges were definitely independent and non-biased,” he says. “We are very happy we won!” Assisting Millican was his nephew, Riley Millican, and local business owner Darryl Brace, who recently opened The Repair Shop on Prince Albert Street in Madoc. Millican said his nephew played an intricate roll in prepara-

Old hotel stands empty until fire safety requirements are met By Judy Backus

EMC News - Marmora The north end of main street saw plenty of activity on September 18 when the residents of the approximately 20 units at what is known as the old hotel, were forced to leave the building. Marmora and Lake CAO Ron Chittick explained the following week that there were outstanding orders on the building related to the safety, in particular, fire safety. He commented there had been an order to remedy an unsafe building related to fire safety issues and that primarily, the building needed a properly installed and operating fire

certified fire alarm system is installed and Fire Chief Tony Brownson is satisfied that all the fire safety issues related to the building have been satisfied. When asked about other issues relating to the building, Chittick said, “There are other orders outstanding on the building and we will continue to deal with them as needed.” The police were on the scene at the time Chief Building Official Matt de Jong advised tenants that they were no longer able to stay in the building, as it was felt that a police presence would help with the situation.

Chittick commented that a representative from Hastings County Social Services was also in attendance to offer assistance, and that all the tenants who requested help had been able to find alternative accommodation. As of September 24, there had been no response from Diadamo relating to the action. Chittick commented with regard to having the building vacated, “It has been an ongoing process which got to the point there was a feeling that the landlord had been given every opportunity to comply, but there had been no sign of any activity in that direction.”

Chittick pointed out that the owner of the building, Frank Diadamo, had been issued the order back in March of 2012 and as there was no compliance, a second order was issued in August, asking the owner to comply by September 17. That date was not met, so on September 18, as Chittick noted, “an order was issued to prohibit use or occupancy of an unsafe building.” The tenants, who had been aware of the fact that an order had been issued, were moved out of the building on September 18 and will remain out until a

as more than 300 hot dogs and 300 hamburgers were prepared for visitors who arrived at Stirling Primary. Classrooms were open with teachers available to parents as students showed off their latest test, their artwork or their musical skills and visited favourite places like the library, gymnasium or the playground. Outside, Girl Guides of Canada volunteers Barb Pitman and Teena Ketcheson were promoting the recently reformed Stirling organization and encouraging new members. With Leaders for Sparks (girls five and six), Brownies (girls seven and eight) and Guides (girls nine to 11) in place there are plenty of spaces available, Ketcheson says, adding there are plenty of reasons to join the Girl Guides. Guiding programs include crafts and games, making friends, community outings and lots and lots of fun. For further information, contact Barb at 613-395-3090 or Teena at 613-477-1131.

Kiwanis pig roast successful despite rain By Richard Barkosky

EMC News - Tweed - The second annual Kiwanis pig roast was held at the Tweed park Saturday afternoon, hosted by the Kiwanis Club and the Tweed and Area Arts Council.

The enclosed pavilion proved to be a good venue, as the intermittent showers would have had a dampening effect on an outdoor setting. Still, many of the patrons chose the take-out option and scurried away

with their generous portions of roast pork, baked potato, beans and other “fixins.” Two whole pigs of approximately 100 pounds each were prepared for this event, with cooking time over four hours. One of the

EMC News - Marmora After presenting a cheque to officials at Caressant Care Retirement Home the Marmora Seniors Club 87 has issued a challenge to other organizations to help make the community more accessible.

And while accessibility is an issue for everyone, she says, it becomes an increasing concern as we all age. “And we’re issuing a challenge to others to contribute,” Wylie told a group of members during cheque presentation ceremonies involving Caressant Care Administrator Cindy Brandt and Manager Jackie Fraser. “The letters are going out

CVCA moves Belmont Lake dam to priority status Belmont dam. Second, that once the structure is reviewed, to act immediately on any necessary work recommended by the findings, and, third, that the LRP’s submission of their concluding report be extended until the first week of November versus the first of October. The three recommendations were motioned and passed. The board agreed to requests from HavelockBelmont-Methuen representatives Ron Gerow and Councillor Larry Ellis that a press release will be published expediently, with a copy going to the Belmont Lake Cottagers Association. Cottagers believe the dam is releasing water and a cause of extreme low levels in the lake. The dam is scheduled for a structural study as result of an overall evaluation of all dams

within the CVCA region. Earlier in the meeting, CVCA General Manager Tim Pidduck reported lake levels remain very low, “… at winter levels …” and there is still a Level Two status in effect for the region, which took effect August 9. He stated, “Despite recent rainfall nothing has changed.” Pidduck referenced environmental data, “In the southern region we have had 4.5 inches of rain, in the north only 2.5 inches. We need at least 12 inches of rainfall to return water levels to normal.” The Wollaston Dam is on the list of dams needing attention. Pidduck reported acquisition of a fall-arrest system, which is being removed from Mississippi River region, at no cost to the CVCA through the Ministry of Natural Resources. “This

is a saving of $10,000 to $15,000 and is adequate for the Wollaston Dam.” Inquiries regarding a washout at the Gut CA near Apsley prompted Pidduck to seek out estimates for fill. He said he received a donation of six tandem loads from Aecon in Marmora, but, that transportation was not included and asked for help from regional municipalities. Barry Rand (North Kawartha) and Brent Goodwin (Wollaston Township) suggested sources in their regions may be available and would be looking into donations/assistance from local sources as they are closer to the area. Chandos Lake is scheduled to be drawn down by two or three inches by the end of September for lake trout spawning. Issues with the dam gate were in discussion as there is no

Fish fry and music made for a great time By Judy Backus

EMC Lifestyles - Marmora The annual Marmora Crowe Valley Lions (MCVL) fish fry is becoming increasingly popular every year. September 22 saw the community centre packed with more than 175 diners who enjoyed New Zealand cod, french fries, baked beans, salads and pie. A happy hour was followed by dinner after which an open mike session, backed up by a stage band consisting of Glen and Leona Foster, Brian Cosby, Ron Ellis and Jimmy Ellis, offered entertainment for all. The fish—all 90 pounds of it—was cooked in pro-

pane fired deep fryers set up outdoors, with fellow Lions members, Diana and Rodney Lloyd from Napanee, catering the sold-out event. MCVL President Russ Mitchell commented (as the fish was turning a golden brown in the vats of oil in the background), that mem-

bers were very appreciative of the fact the municipality had waived the fee for the hall and that municipal employees had set up the tables and chairs in preparation for the dinner. He commented of the municipality, “The work they do for us is just fantastic. It helps us our so we can

donate more money to the community.” He explained, “We made a $10,000 commitment over five years to Kingston General Hospital Foundation. This is the last year, and we should be able to pay if off! We have had excellent support from the community.”

reference point for elevation and sits four inches higher than winter levels at Potash. The situation will be reviewed during the draw down. Funding is an issue for all 36 conservation authorities in Ontario. MNR funding will send the CVCA transfer payment of $116,741, but, the Water Erosion Control Infrastructure allotment will be reduced by 50 per cent for the next two years. Pidduck said the board is promised to

return to regular funding after that. Meanwhile, there is talk of fund raising for conservation authorities. Thanksgiving weekend there is one such event at the McGeachie CA, Steenberg Lake. During a closed session the board appointed current CVCA General Manager Tim Pidduck to the position of Interim Regulations Officer. The next meeting is scheduled for the first day of November.

EMC News - Marmora The September meeting of the Crowe Valley Conservation Authority (CVCA) assembled after an intense morning of discussions during the Long Range Plan (LRP) committee meeting, most of them focused on issues brought forward by HavelockBelmont-Methuen Mayor Ron Gerow. The levels of Belmont Lake are at an all-time low. Gerow said constituents of Belmont Lake Cottagers Association were waiting on any decision made by the CVCA board. Barry Rand (North Kawartha), chair of the LRP group, brought forward three recommendations from the morning discussions. The first was that a set amount of dollars be allotted from the capital reserve fund for a structural study of the

Both of you take a step back and say, “Do I know what I’m talking about?” I wonder if you both do. Mr. Way and Mr. Stewart, let the Police Service, in particular the chief, do their job, which is 24/7 not like most people’s hours of work. Am I biased? Sure I am. I was a police officer for 30

years, 15 in Stirling. By the way I had a Grade 12 education when I joined in Tweed in 1974. Is that good enough for the whiners? You don’t speak on my behalf and you never will. You’re a minority and always will be. Tom Andrews, Stirling

I shall give you a few local examples: Busy Bee Apiaries in Cobourg (the Carr family have been pro-

ducing honey for over 50 years!); St Ambrose Honey in Warkworth; Dancing Bee in Canton; and Jones Honey in Castleton.  Please don’t short shrift all the many other wonderful honey producers within Northumberland. Under the Bees Act, R.S.O. 1990, Chapter B.6.6 states. “No Person shall be a beekeeper in Ontario without a certificate of registration issued by the Provincial

Apiarist.” (OMAFRA). The CFIA has stringent regulations governing honey producers and their products.   Beware of honey labelled as a blend of Canadian and another source country. It is not a truly Canadian honey.

Being one of the few civilized people around, I love to see wildlife, but, unfortunately, this beautiful land is becoming a barren waste land. I used to have deer walk through my property, but thanks to rednecks pushing the

EMC Editorial - In my trade you get used to it after a while, but the first time you wake up to find a military coup has happened overnight where you live is quite alarming. That was in Turkey back in 1971, when the army seized Gwynne Dyer control of the country after months of political turmoil. It was not as bad as the 1960 coup, when the military authorities tried and hanged the prime minister, but it was bad enough. There were two more coups in Turkey: in 1980, when half a million were arrested, tens of thousands were tortured, and fifty were executed, and 1997, a “post-modern” coup in which the army simply ordered the prime minister to resign. But there will be no more coups in Turkey: the army has finally been forced to bow to a democratically elected government. On September 21 a Turkish court sentenced 330 people, almost all military officers, to prison for their involvement in a coup plot in 2003. They included the former heads of the army, navy and air force, who received sentences of 20 years each, and six other generals. Thirty-four other officers were acquitted. Five years ago, nobody in Turkey could have imagined such a thing. The military were above the law, with the sacred mission (at least in their own minds) of defending the secular state from being undermined by people who mixed religion with politics. Making coups against governments that trespassed on that forbidden ground was just part of their job. This was the duty that the 330 officers thought they were performing in 2003, according to the indictments against them. The Justice and Development Party (AKP), a moderate Islamic party espousing conservative social values, had come to power after the 2002 election: the voters had got it wrong again, and their mistake had to be corrected. With public opinion abroad and at home increasingly hostile to military coups, a better pretext was needed than in the old days. So the plot, “Operation Sledgehammer,” involved bomb attacks on two major mosques in Istanbul, a Turkish fighter shot down by the Greeks, and an attack on a military museum by Islamic militants. The real attackers, in every case heavily disguised, would actually be the military themselves. The accused 330 claimed that “Operation Sledgehammer” was all just a scenario for a military exercise, and the documents supporting the accusations (probably leaked by junior officers opposed to a coup) have never been properly attributed. But given the ar-

my’s track record of four coups in fifty years and its deeply rooted hostility to Islamic parties, the charges were entirely plausible, and in the end the court believed them. The army has no choice but to accept the court’s judgement. The AK party has been re-elected twice with increasing majorities, the party’s pious leaders have not tried to shove their values down everybody else’s throats, and the economy has flourished. A new constitution, ratified in a referendum in 2010, has finally made elected civilian governments superior to the army. It even removed the legal immunity that those who carried out the bloody 1980 coup wrote into the previous constitution to protect themselves. As a result, the leaders of that coup, retired generals Kenan Evren and Tahsin Sahinkaya, have also been brought to trial. And about time, too. Even now, many secular-minded people in Turkey do not trust the motives of an Islamic party in government. They still think that the army is there to protect them from the dark oppression of the religious fanatics, and that any attempt to curb its power is a conspiracy against the whole principle of the secular, neutral state. But the Turkish secular state has never been neutral. From the time when Mustafa Kemal Ataturk and his companions, all military officers, rescued Turkey from the wreckage of the Ottoman Empire after World War I, the state was at war with religion. Ataturk began by abolishing the religious schools, the Sultanate, and the Caliphate (religious authority over all Muslims) that Ottoman sultans had traditionally claimed. He banned forms of headgear, like the fez and the turban, that had religious connotations. He replaced Islamic law with Western legal codes, and declared the equal status of women and men (including votes for women). It was understandable, because Ataturk had always argued that Turkey must Westernise its institutions and write off the non-Turkish parts of the empire if it wanted to survive in a world dominated by industrialised Western empires. But that was 75 years ago. Today’s Turkey is modern, powerful, and prosperous, and there is no external threat. It’s high time for the Turkish army to stop waging a cold war against the part of the population who are still devoutly religious. They are entitled to the full rights of citizenship too, although they are not entitled to force their beliefs and values on everybody else. That was the significance of AK’s victories in the past three elections, and of the trials that have finally brought the army under control. The head of the Turkish armed forces and all three service chiefs resigned in July in protest against the trials of military personnel, but President Abdullah Gul promptly appointed a new head of the armed forces—who tamely accepted the post. It’s over.

Letter to the editor Obama and Trudeau birds of a feather Dear Editor, Socialist economics and communist-style central planning didn’t work in the Soviet Union and many other European countries. But the United States ignores history and the odds as they decide giving another four years of Obama incompetence. The coming American election looks like a mirror image of the late 1960s in Canada. That’s when Canadian voters elected a Marxist politician that the useful idiots in the media anointed because he had “charisma” to be PM. Forget his politics Pierre Trudeau idolized Fidel Castro and his Communist

regime in Cuba, but don’t worry because our brilliant experts of the day claimed he looked cool and made wonderful sound bites for the broadcast media. After Trudeau disappeared from the scene, Canada was left with a constitution minus property rights, a divided country, high unemployment, excessive debt and a downgraded financial status. It has taken the last 40 years to reasonably recover from the Trudeaumania madness and even so we have far fewer freedoms today than before the PET era. It may take the Americans just as long to recover from the Obama hangover in his bid to transform that country from a prosperous free-enterprise, capitalist society into another uninspired socialist state. If Americans want to solve their economic dilemma and regain control of their own foreign policy destiny, which happens to be in the interests of Canada, there is only one solution. Get rid of the amateur in charge of the White House. Let’s finally get it right by substituting competence and character over charisma. Rolly Ethier, Campbellford

By Terry Bush

EMC Editorial - Many of us were saddened to hear about the passing of Sam Sniderman on Sunday. If you don’t know who Sam was, you’ve obviously never taken a stroll on Yonge Street in downtown Toronto. Sam was and always will be “the” record man. The last remaining store in the Quinte Mall doesn’t quite do the original justice. The name may be the same but the atmosphere certainly isn’t. Sam’s in downtown Toronto was only about the music, a Mecca of sorts for anyone who enjoyed putting a record on a turntable. It was a place where Canadian artists always had a home and a man who cared about them. Their photos adorned the walls, the low budget frames and messages to Sam blending in with the decor or lack thereof. Sam championed their music and did his part to ensure Canadian content was present on Canadian radio stations. Cleanliness was never a top priority at Sam’s. The old place always had dirty, creaky floors, a funny smell at times, graffiti on the walls, more than a few cobwebs and the craziest looking sales people you’d find anywhere. The hairstyles changed with the music, long in the seventies, punked out in the early eighties, poofed out by the end of that decade and then, well I really couldn’t tell you about the nineties because by then, the thrill had gone and progress reared its ugly head with big name chains from the U.S. setting up shop in new and glitzy stores. Music and the Internet joined hands. LPs were out, CDs were in and eventually CDs weren’t in either. I spent almost a decade collecting albums and Sam’s was one of the few places that always had whatever obscure piece of vinyl you hoped to find. If they didn’t have it, they could get it. Their Boxing Day sales were legendary. We’d all get up early and pile into a vehicle, usually mine, and head off to the Big Smoke to stand in line for a half hour or so before sharpening our elbows and making our way through the crowd. It was always wall-to-wall people with barely enough room to turn around. Then with a dozen or so half-price LPs in hand, we’d reunite on the sidewalk to brag about how much money we’d saved. And save we did. I can remember one trip when I bought 17 new records and saved myself at least $50 which was quite a big deal in 1976. Hell, I was making money by spending money I figured considering the average record album cost around $6.50 back then. We’d grab a falafel or two, make the obligatory pilgrimage to a couple of head shops, amazing places when you came from rural Ontario, buy a couple of black lights to shine on our newly purchased psychedelic posters and head home. A smile still crosses my face every time I get a whiff of incense for some reason. With a “see you in a couple of days,” we’d all go our separate ways and hunker down with the headphones emerging only when each album had been played at least three times so we could give a well-researched critique when we got together again. “Well, the only good song on that piece of crap was the song on the radio,” was a common refrain. It never mattered because after sorting through a dozen albums and only finding a couple of duds, we were more than happy to head on back to TO to have another go. And Sam would always be there waiting for us. He looked like an old man to us even back then. But he was almost impossible to stump. Iggy and the Stooges “Raw Power”? Here you go. Todd Rungren’s “A wizard, a true star”? End of the aisle on sale this week. That’s the one album I sold I really wish I still had, it was just so freaky. Well, maybe there were a few more LPs I wish I still owned and in hindsight whittling down a collection of 500 albums down to 340 maybe wasn’t such a good idea. It’s hard to explain a fascination with vinyl but there’s just something about holding that big record sleeve and reading the lyric sheets and in cases like the Beatles Magical Mystery Tour looking at the booklet that comes with the album. No squinting required. I almost feel sorry that today’s generation has missed out on that now that smaller is better whether it be a computer, phone or MP3 player. A jewel case with a couple of photos doesn’t really hold a candle to a double album. And a download from the Internet only gives you a song or an album but none of the fun stuff that goes with it. My age is no doubt showing here. But sometimes even members of the younger generation can appreciate what they’re missing out on. My two nieces from Edmonton came on a visit a decade ago and when I introduced them to my collection, they fell in love. As they pored through my LPs, I found out that my niece Jesse was a collector of Fleetwood Mac vinyl. When I showed her Mac albums before Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham came on board, she was enthralled. When I handed her a couple of albums done by Fleetwood Mac alumni, no longer with the band and told her she could keep them, I became her favourite uncle at least for that day. Not to leave niece Erin empty-handed, I taped a bunch of my favourite albums explaining all the while that grunge music wasn’t anything new just part of the cycle. I hooked her on old Black Sabbath from the days when Ozzie was still intelligible. I bonded with my two nieces over those milk crates full of plastic and cardboard and in the back of my mind thanked Sam the Record Man for helping me accumulate all those gems. They’ve moved from place to place and resided in four different locations now but I’ll never throw them out even if I don’t ever listen to many of them again. They’re part of what makes me who I am and Sam the Record Man played his part in my upbringing whether he knows it or not. Thanks, Sam. Northeast EMC - Thursday, September 27, 2012

War of 1812 explained in words and poems Canada by the Americans, but about “freeing” Canada from the yoke of British imperialism. The Canadians, however, held a very different view and fought off the American invasion, even at most times, against great odds. In one battle near Montreal, 5,000 American troops were repelled by 800 British and Canadian soldiers. The war left York (Toronto) in ruins, as well as a swath of burned out farms and villages in the path of the American invasion. In retaliation for the destruction, British and Cana-

EMC News - Tweed Bruce Bedell lives for history. On Wednesday, September 12, Bedell enthralled a rapt audience at the Tweed Heritage Centre with a variety of commentary and poetry on the history of the War of 1812 as experienced by the average soldier. Spiced with humour and anecdote, his presentation covered the major and minor battles for the sovereignty of Canada. From Bedell’s research, the War of 1812 was not about the conquest of

The initial estimate of cost based on an assessment of regional dams was given at $1.9 million, a cost which chair Barry Rand said could be reduced to one million based on some practical recommendations from mechanical engineer Wayne Alexander, who, in his retirement, has volunteered his expertise.

dian soldiers burned the American White House. The war eventually ended in 1815 with the Treaty of Ghent. The result was a conclusive victory which also cemented the union of Upper and Lower Canada. Bedell said he was motivated by Johnny Horton’s song “The Battle of New Orleans” to set the record straight from the Canadian point of view.

need for extension  of their timeline.  The committee agreed they will be busy. After extensive discussion on all aspects of a potential problem with the Belmont Lake dam, members set structural safety of that dam as a priority. CVCA General Manager Tim Pidduck, left the room to contact appropriate professionals on the logistics, projected costs, and time constraints of that job. He returned with a cost estimate double what was expected, and logistical details including the onslaught of winter weather. All members agreed; with current low water conditions in Belmont Lake, now is the best time to look into any problems at that location.  Pidduck reports water is flowing into the lake at three cubic metres per second and flowing out of the lake at a rate of seven cubic metres per second. Though CVCA’s mandate reads it is to manage flood control, committee agreed, it is the integrity of the dam which is in question, indicating that applies to all states of water level.  A recommendation was formulated to present at the afternoon Board of Director’s meeting. Belmont dam is a priority and capital can be drawn from reserves. As Havelock-BelmontMethuen Mayor Ron Gerow continued to receive text messages from his constituents, members dealt with matters of understanding the books and how books are managed, what is paid for what job and how a job can be carried out with best time/expense management. They set goals for each to complete before the next meeting and arranged to meet with auditors, contractors and their own councils.

Anchor of Hope open house EMC News - Madoc Since being named Director of the Anchor of Hope Pregnancy and Family Care Centre early this summer Tara Flagler says there have been a few other changes as well but the services and support programs have remained the same. Anchor of Hope, located in a house on Russell Street, is a satellite of the Belleville Pregnancy and Family Care Centre, Flagler explains, and offers support for women facing difficult pregnancy issues or requiring information, referrals or access to other community resources. The centre has been operating in Madoc for ten years, previously under Director Kara Vallinga, and a pair of recent open houses at the centre offered an opportunity to meet the new director, Flagler, and several volunteers as well as learn about the services available at the only Family Care Centre between Belleville

and Bancroft. Visitors and clients, Flagler says, include residents in the immediate area as well as surrounding communities of Stirling-Rawdon, Tweed, and Marmora. As well as free and confidential pregnancy tests, Anchor of Hope can also provide referrals for housing or legal assistance as well as baby care items and infant and maternity clothing. The centre features a kitchen, used by staff, as well as counselling rooms, a reception area and a large supply of clothing and baby needs that continue to arrive by donation. The open house also gave staff and volunteers the perfect chance to show off their decorating skills as preparations included a fresh coat of paint in the front room. Flagler says there are differing circumstances and differing needs in each case but pregnancy and pregnancy issues can cause a great deal of stress because of the

Students say it loud and clear By Judy Backus

EMC News - Marmora Students and staff at Marmora Senior School, many dressed in yellow or pink, filed onto the playground on the afternoon of September 21 for their first Terry Fox Walk and Chalk. The students each wore stickers detailing who they were walking for, whether it was a family member dealing with cancer, someone who had succumbed to the disease, or in memory of Terry Fox. Prior to the event, student helpers cut ribbons, made posters and created announcements to support the walk which included toonie donations to be forwarded to the Canadian Cancer Society.

The initial activity was a brisk circuit or two of the track, with some opting to walk while others broke into a run. Each of the students was subsequently given a piece of yellow chalk which they used for writing messages on the tarmac as well as on nearby concrete and brick walls. Within minutes the surfaces were filled with comments directed at cancer. Among them: “Go away cancer, we don’t like you,” “You hurt my family,” “Take a hike,” “I am here for my friends and family. Stay away,” and “Don’t give up hope. Memories never fade.” One strategically located message advised, “Kick cancer down the drain!”

The track at Marmora Senior School was a picture in yellow and pink as students walked or ran around the circuit, raising funds in support of the fight against cancer. Photo: Judy Backus

Family Day activities were fun for all By Judy Backus

EMC Lifestyles - Marmora - Unpredictable and very changeable weather did little to dampen the Family Day festivities hosted by members of Marmora Pentecostal Church and held at Me-

morial Park on the first day of autumn. People of all ages arrived for an entertaining afternoon which included games and activities for the children, music, and food— all of which was available at no cost.

In consideration of the possibility of rain, barbeques were set up under the protection of the riverside shelter where crowds gathered to sample hot dogs, hamburgers, chips and drinks. If a snack was all that was required, nearby there was freshly made popcorn along with bright blue cotton candy. The children’s games included a bean bag toss, Plunkit, a fish pond, an enormous inflatable obstacle course and a selection of very popular food related games. One of these involved planting one’s face in a plateful of chocolate pudding while trying to locate the half dozen gummy worms contained within. Another meant eating a large wedge of watermelon, again, without using one’s hands. The face painting station was another popular stop with a chart set out to help with the decision making process. Among the choices were: a panda, moon and stars, a pumpkin, Tigger, a butterfly, a clown and a scarecrow, but the general feeling seemed to be that the pirate was the best. Music played a part in the celebration, with three groups performing during the course of the celebration: Regeneration comprised of four students from Masters College and Seminary of Peterborough, The Proverbs, a family group from Westport, as well as the husband and wife duo of Dave and

Music filled the air with three groups providing uplifting entertainment throughout the afternoon. One of these, the Proverbs, comprised of Karyl Tymciw, Dave Daw and Kathy Daw, performed the following morning during the regular Marmora Pentecostal Church service. Photo: Judy Backus

Jennifer Cowan. Last year, the church hosted a similar event in recognition of its 75th anniversary. It was so well attended that a decision was made to continue this year with Family Day which was open to all and was clearly a popular way to spend a Saturday afternoon.

Danish farmers tour sugar bush on whirlwind tour

mented. After sampling maple cookies made by Alice Potter who has operated the sugar bush with her husband George for the past 35 years, the group toured the evaporator house. “We have a wood-fired evaporator and it is quite efficient,” said George, as he talked about the sugar bush that encompasses about 60 acres of his 172acre farm. “We have 50 kilometres

of line through the trees,” he said, explaining that “22 to 25 days is a good season.” “We didn’t get that last year; the weather turned warm,” he added. The pancake house is open through March and April. “If we have a good year we should get one litre of finished product for every one of these trees,” he said, some of which are as much as 150 years old.

“I think it’s just wonderful for visitors from other countries to visit the Sandy Flat Sugar Bush to learn how we make this wonderful product,” Alice told EMC. “These ribbons you see here, we have won the world championship four times for our maple syrup. It was judged in Toronto,” she added, pointing to a wall in the pancake house where the red ribbons were on display. “I always say maple syrup makes any dish more delicious,” she concluded with a big smile, the consummate hostess.

EMC News - Warkworth Farmers from Denmark following in the footsteps of agricultural journalists who travelled here last year, planted their feet firmly on Canadian soil recently with a stop at Sandy Flat Sugar Bush near Warkworth. “We have four purposes,” said Jørgen Lund Christiansen, leader of the tour. “We are are here to learn about farming in Canada, to learn about Canadian history, Canadian politics and current events and to see and enjoy Canadian nature,” he told EMC. This was his 36th study tour for farmers and managers in the Danish co-operative sector with representatives from farm supply and dairy co-ops and co-op slaughterhouses. “I organize the tours in co-operation with LandbrugsAvisen, the leading Danish ag paper,” he explained. He was kept busy translating for the busload of farmers, retired farmers and their wives, during their trip that lasted 17 days and included travel to Ottawa, then Calgary. “We’re going to see the [Rod] Potter’s Game Park and yesterday we went on a tour of dairy farms in New Hamburg and Waterloo and we had a meeting with a former president of hog producers,” he said. The group returns to Denmark tomorrow. Describing himself as “an educated farmer and educated journalist,” Christiansen has been writing for 25 years and was the CEO for The Danish National Organization for farm supply co-ops. Since 1999 he has had his own information company JLC Kommunikation ApS and as well has been one of the Danish participants in the International Federation of Agricultural Journalists (IFAJ) congresses. Last year more than 250 delegates from 33 different countries came here and he was one of those delegates on a tour that was hosted by the Canadian Farm Writers’ Federation. The Sandy Flat Sugar Bush was one of their stops in 2011 and so Christiansen decided to include it as part of his company’s itinerary. “I used to be a farmer in Denmark but I sold my farm,” said Christiansen who talked about how he fights for the rights of farmers in a country which is part of the common market in Europe, a country that is world famous for its agriculture and food sector. “It is quite different from Canada,” he com-

Creative Hastings holds networking gathering By Richard Barkosky

EMC News - Tweed - The Quinn’s of Tweed Fine Art Gallery was the setting for the fall meeting of Creative Hastings, a networking opportunity for Hastings County artists and entrepreneurs. Economic Development Manager Andrew Redden welcomed the local business people who were there to share their learning experiences and find out what

resources were available to further and enhance their business. He began by saying that today’s economy is different from the industrial-based economy in the past, and defined the new, creative economy as one where people are paid to think. A growing percentage of businesses in this area would fall into this category, and those personally involved need to grow their business by networking and

utilizing the resources available to them.  He noted that between the years 2006 and 2010, 260,000 manufacturing jobs were lost, yet 200,000 new jobs were created. He then asked several entrepreneurs to come forward to tell their stories. Maureen Walton related how she came to the Hastings area from Toronto, expecting that she would have to commute to Toronto to continue her business of painting murals. Eight years on, she is painting locally, in seniors residences, schools and for private individuals. (This reporter’s garage door is a testament to her talents!)  Peter Stevenson is a fine furniture manufacturer who located in the area because it is halfway between his primary markets, Ottawa and Toronto. His preparation for this work was an intense two years of training in Tasmania. Each of his creations reflects a very personal involvement with the prospective recipient, his physical characteristics, the expected use of the product, and any other consideration that would make it unique and personalized. The result is a hand-made example of heirloom quality that will last for generations. Douglas Barnes of Ecoedge Designs, solves land development problems by selecting sustainable design systems so that “interconnecting things work together.” His work has taken him as far away as India, where a drainage scheme he put in place changed an arid

wasteland into a productive mango farm. Caitlyn Davidson told how her organically grown chickens are free-range birds, and fed only certified organic grain, then sold to an Ottawa restaurant. She is looking to expand her business by starting a flock of heritage breed chickens. Paul Dederer has converted Quinn’s into a Fine

Art gallery which now boasts the works of 45 artisans. Many of the paintings originate from artists in the nearby area. Being located on a major route between Ottawa and Toronto has helped expand his customer base in these cities. Small business depends on many resources to flourish, and this support was in evidence in the form of

business consultant Birgit Wartenberg, who pointed out her agency could advise concerning government funding, or help someone find a bookkeeper. A pleasant evening of networking while browsing Quinn’s art gallery was enhanced by the addition of a jazz trio and delicious hors d’oeuvres supplied by Murphy’s bistro.

Just 17 kilometres west of Drumheller, on Highway 9, is the busier, more often visited of the area’s magnificent canyons, Horseshoe Canyon, so named because of its horseshoe shape, and if you’re arriving from the west, this will be your first real glimpse of the Canadian badlands. It’s an impressive sight! You’ll also find that, like the Grand Canyon itself, this “grand canyon” has helicopter tours available provided by nearby Mountainview Helicopters, <www.mvheli.

tance, including evidence of several types of dinosaurs residing here). It’s not surprising, then, that Drumheller is now the location of one of the world’s largest collections of dinosaur skeletons in its Royal Tyrell Museum, and it’s Canada’s only museum that’s devoted exclusively to the study of paleontology. The renowned museum is located, fittingly enough, on what’s known as the Dinosaur Trail. The area’s two most famous tourist routes are the Dinosaur Trail and the Hoodoo Trail. Drumheller is also the site of a natural amphitheatre of rock and sandstone (with great acoustics) where a local theatre troupe performs the “Canadian Badlands Passion Play” each July; <www. canadianpassionplay.com>. It’s an incredible setting for one of Alberta’s top cultural attractions. In 2013, the

EMC Lifestyles - I was driving through Alberta’s “Wheatland Country,” with its rather wide open, rolling and lush farmland, but as I approached Drumheller (northeast of Calgary), the landscape took a very sudden and dramatic change. I descended into the Red Deer River Valley, and here I found myself surrounded by strange, eerie rock formations that included tall, mushroom-shaped pillars of sandstone that jutted high up into the air, and nearby were mammoth, almost “otherworldly” looking canyons with stratified layers of rock and towering, multi-coloured canyon walls. I’d arrived in “Dinosaur Valley” and was now in the heart of Canada’s badlands! The appearance of the landscape in the Drumheller area was, indeed, startling, almost spooky. In fact, I discovered that some of the natives who used to inhabit this area thought that the hoodoos were petrified giants who came to life at night, and they were therefore fearful of these structures; and then there were all those strange objects that were found in the area’s canyons—in an area that some believed might even be haunted! Millions of years ago, dinosaurs called these badlands “home,” and the fossilized remains found here have certainly added to the area’s fame and impor-

scents. It’s a real workout! After exploring these awesome canyons, I drove along the Hoodoo Trail, to check out the renowned hoodoos in the badlands. I stopped at the village of Rosedale along the way to see its Star Mine Suspension Bridge. Coal miners used to walk across a rickety old suspension bridge here to reach the mine and now a more stable one has been erected for visitors to enjoy free. Another short drive brought me to the village of Wayne, and the claim to fame of this short drive is having “the most bridges in the shortest distance”—11 bridges in seven kilometres. Continuing on past the hoodoos themselves, I soon arrived at the Atlas Coal Mine, a National Historic Site, which features Canada’s last still standing wooden tipple. The Drumheller area is, indeed, fascinating and its grand canyons and mysterious badlands contribute significantly to the overall feeling of awe in this exceptional destination.

com>, and you’ll also find several intriguing hiking trails. These well worn footpaths are actually relatively easy, and it’s about a 60-metre descent down to the floor of the canyon. However, wind, rain, loose stones, and rattlesnakes could pose problems, so take care, and carry lots of drinking water with you as you won’t find any convenience store down in the canyon. If you’re fortunate enough to find some fossils along the way, just leave them alone; it’s illegal to remove them. The area’s other grand canyon, Horsethief Canyon, is located 16 kilometres northwest of Drumheller, on route #838, and it’s rumoured horse thieves used to hide stolen horses here. The rim provides several awesome views, and its hiking trails tend to be steeper and more treacherous. Far fewer visitors hike here, so you’ll find some of the routes are overgrown and rugged, and there’s a lot of single track, with steep ascents and de-

LIFESTYLES

EMC Lifestyles - We garden scribes like to pull out the “now is the time” column at certain times of the year. We do this for several reasons. The first is, indeed, it is the right time of the year to perform that particular task.  The second is that most of us seem to feel we need to tell you something you may or may not need to know. For example, my thinking here is that Gentle Readers fall into three categories: long-time gardeners (including those who have progressed from gardening to apartment living), new gardeners and folks who read the column because they need to count the number of commas I use. A third is that we are very aware of what

our fellow writers are printing and we need to stay in the van, be avant gardeners if you would permit such an old chestnut of a pun.  Another reason is that once one writes about fall prep for lawns, harvesting veggies and fixing up the tools, what’s left is enthusiastic fluff, before the Christmas season arrives. So, today at least, divisions it is. We sometimes to forget to explain that which most obviously needs explaining. In this case, what is “dividing”? Simply put, you cut, pry, or tear asunder, a plant into little pieces. Why would you do such a thing?  Some plants, as they mature, will develop bare centre spots, for example, many ornamental grasses. Other

Divided we stand

plants, such as daylilies, will sort of crowd themselves and flower production drops off and you’re left with a big clump of grassy stuff that looks as if the lawnmower should be brought in.  Often, the plant has outgrown its allocated area and needs to be shown its proper place again. How do you do it? Carefully. Well, that was the glib answer and while some care needs to be taken, precision is usually not necessary. However, just breaking up a plant into little bits is a good way of creating compost if you go about it in the wrong fashion. Now is the time but is it always this time? No matter what you do in terms of gardening you can be sure there is some sort

Reality Check:

Sheila Wray Gregoire EMC Lifestyles - Frequent readers of this column will know that I am not a fan of contemporary culture. Every critique I have written to date, though, pales in comparison to this: Here Comes Honey Boo Boo proves that

we are witnessing The End of the World as We Know It. Perhaps the Mayans were onto something. For those of you not familiar with this monstrosity, Honey Boo Boo Child is the nickname of six-year-old Alana Thompson, a rather rotund contestant made famous by the show Toddlers and Tiaras. Her favourite slogan is “a dollar makes me holler,” which made me want to gag. Her mother dresses up her overweight offspring in overthe-top outfits, teaches her to talk and act like a tramp, and fosters this freakish persona for all to see. I have not seen the show (we don’t subscribe to cable), but I’ve watched enough YouTube clips that my brain’s constant refrain is now “make it stop.”

of general guideline to follow and dividing perennials is no different.  Those that flower in the spring are best divided in the fall and those that either flower or bear fruit in the fall are best divided in the spring. That is so you get the maximum benefit of the visual appeal of the plant, not for any better survivability.  If you are looking only at what time is best for the plant, then now is that time. “Now” gives the division lots of time to overcome the shock of being torn asunder; time to develop new roots; and time to establish a food reserve for the coming spring. There are exceptions, always. Gentle Reader, on the web you will find many experts,

A Honey Boo Boo world

The cultural appeal of Honey Boo Boo is similar to that of a train wreck: it’s so awful that you just can’t look away. And this is not, of course, a new phenomenon. In the past we had circuses with bearded ladies or elephant men. Centuries ago families would embark on a nice Sunday outing to watch the latest hanging. We have always enjoyed watching freaks. It makes us feel better about ourselves. And pretty much everyone is better than Miss Alana’s mother, who feeds her child a mixture of Red Bull and Mountain Dew (her “go go juice”) to boost Honey Boo Boo’s energy during pageants. Few of us would ever parent that badly. And so the show has wide appeal.

Cultural Awareness Workshops

An eight-week series of workshops with Betty (Katsitsiase) Maracle and Suzanne Brant of Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory, offered free to the public — EVERYONE WELCOME!

In fact, more people watched Here Comes Honey Boo Boo than watched the Republican National Convention in the United States. The people who will be determining the next leader of the free world aren’t bothering to listen to the candidates; they’re watching a family that gives rednecks a bad name. I do not believe everybody should watch all political debates or conventions; that truly is a personal choice. At the same time, though, our world is facing major problems. The Middle East is in an uproar again; Europe is disintegrating; China is flexing its muscles. Perhaps it is hardly surprising that we should

ting on circuses to distract us. We are doing it to ourselves willingly. After millennia of people fighting for freedom, we are choosing instead to ignore the real issues and gloat about obese redneck freak shows. I know I frequently border on snobbery, and so perhaps I am putting too grim a spin on it. But I can’t help feeling that a free people must deserve to be free. And a free people must be vigilant about staying that way. I don’t think a society immersed in Honey Boo Boo, or the Kardashians, or the latest sex tape qualifies. And so I worry about what cultural phenomenon comes next.

EMC News - Belleville - Police received a call from a city resident about a potential fraud. He explained that while on the Internet, his computer displayed a message with a header that claimed to be from the Internet Crimes Division of the Federal Police Department. It went on to say this male was going be charged with numerous offences and could face up to eight years in prison. However, if he paid $100 in advance, then there would be no charges. His computer screen was frozen, and the message went on to say that once the funds were received, they would release the computer. He was able to regain access to his computer by shutting down the Internet, and doing a full system restore from a previous save point. This is another example of a fraud. People are reminded not to send money to any Internet sites until they have had a chance to confirm the legitimacy of the site.

choose instead to watch reality TV shows, where we can immerse ourselves in this alternative reality, and ignore the even scarier one that is encroaching upon us. Nevertheless, this is a huge cultural blunder. Back in Roman days the senators and leaders provided “bread and circuses” to distract the masses. They produced dramatic yet gory extravaganzas so the people would be appeased and would have something to think about and talk about rather than how corrupt and inept the government was.  And it worked. The difference today is that it is not our leaders put-

I say this because if you read through a lot of the information you will find contradictions. For me, there are two imperatives. The first is to use sharp tools. The second is to know as much as you can about the plant itself. Stay ahead of the curve, don’t wait for a plant to seriously decline before you attempt to rejuvenate it. By the way, you might read about the two-fork method for splitting large clumps of daylilies or grasses. I confess I have difficulty with this method and I’m

EMC News - Marmora - A total of 17 stalwart men and women headed out from Memorial Park on September 22 during the threestage Adventure Race hosted by the Marmora SnoFest Association. An overnight

deluge resulted in a muddy trail, and brisk winds meant that no one became overheated on the course. The challenge began with a brisk run to the first check point near Milk Run Road where the bikes were picked up. Then it was a matter of

cycling along the trail to the second checkpoint at Zion Church before striking out on Centre Line and Fidlar Glen Roads to pick up either a canoe or kayak for the final leg of the challenge which ended at the North End Boat Launch.

starting blast sounded. Once the competitors had completed the course, the adventure concluded with prizes for all, an awards ceremony and a chili lunch prepared by Dianne and Bill McCoy, which no doubt served to take the chill off. SnoFest Event Co-ordinator Vicki Best commented while waiting for the last of the entrants to arrive back at the park, “We hope each year to get steadily more and more participation. The feedback has been positive and I’m happy that SnoFest is hosting more events and hopefully will be known for more than just one winter event.”

The brochure advertising the event mentioned, “A challenging fun race for all in a beautiful countryside setting.” It went on to speak of the course which consisted of “a trek on roads, through bush and over fields, biking on quiet paved and unpaved roads or trails, and a canoe/ kayak run on the calm waters of the Marmora area.” Participants arrived from points both near and far, with one having made the trip from Ottawa, another from Oakville and

still others from points in between. Some had chosen catchy names for their teams, among them Butterfly Racing, Sofa Kings, Two Fit Freaks and the no doubt aptly named, The Sore Tomorrows. Placing first in the race was Peter Phillips of Colborne, who completed the challenge with a time of 1:59:39. In second was the Trent Hillbillies team of Calvin Newman and Bob Vieth who finished shortly behind Phillips with a time of 2:03:11. B.J. Kiddle, from Woodlawn north of Ottawa, was third crossing the finish line two hours 25 minutes and 37 seconds after the

EMC Sports - On Saturday, the Alarm Systems Minor Peewees opened their 2012-2013 season on the road versus Central Ontario with a 3 - 1 win. Goals were scored by Keegan Hunt, Jacob Campbell and Landon McLellan. Assists went to Connor Kennedy (2), Landon McLellan and Elijah Brahaney. Carpet One The Quinte Carpet One Minor Atom Red Devils hosted the Peterborough Petes in back-to-back games to open ETA regular season play. In game one, the Petes scored the winning goal with two minutes left to play and then added an empty netter as the Devils dropped a 3 - 1 decision. Nate Burelle, unassisted, scored for the Devils. Dixon Grimes was solid between the pipes in the loss. In Sunday’s rematch, the Devils once again lost by an identical 3 - 1 score. Gavin Camp scored the lone Devils’ goal with Aden DeryawWalsh and Isaac Macleod drawing assists. Ethan Fraser was strong in the Devils’ loss.

McInroy Maines The McInroy Maines Minor Midgets started the season short-handed. The team travelled to Richmond Hill to face the South Central Coyotes with only eight skaters and one goalie. The boys battled hard in a 3 - 1 loss. Brodie Butt had the lone goal for Quinte with the assist going to Josh Kurish. Cameron Parr faced 35 shots in net. Next action for the Red Devils is Saturday, September 29, in Cobourg at 7 p.m. against the Central Ontario Wolves. Kwik Kopy The Kwik Kopy Quinte Major Bantam Devils played host to the South Central Coyotes and the Clarington

Toros in the ETA regular season opening weekend at the RCAF Arena. Against South Central, two goals by the visitors led to an early deficit, but a short-handed goal by Austin Fry (assist to Austin Labelle) in the second, cut the lead to one. South Central, however, came right back with a goal only one minute later. Near the end of the period, a pass by Matt Cavanaugh sprung Austin Labelle, who was able to put it past the Coyotes’ netminder and again narrow the lead to one. A very strong third period did not yield the tying goal and the Devils ended up losing 3 - 2. Jack Moore was in net for the loss. On Sunday, the Devils Continued on page 23

Cornerstone Builders The Cornerstone Builders Peewee Red Devils had a two-game weekend with some positive results. On Saturday they hosted Clarington and unfortunately were shut out by a significant margin. Evan Morrison played a very strong game in net regardless of the one-sided loss. On Sunday the team squeaked out a 2 - 2 tie versus South Central. Walker Deroche had one unassisted goal and Nathan Dunkley scored the second, assisted by Dawson Baker and Joe Crothers. Pierce Nelson had a solid performance in net contributing to the tie.

Hoey led the attack with a hat trick and Anthony Popovich earned the shutout in goal for the Devils. The other goals came from Ryan Fraser, Shelby Rienstra, Aidan McFarland, Jakob Brahaney, and Colin VanDenHurk. McFarland also chipped in with three assists. Brady Gilmour, Scoley Dow and Brock Bronson each had two assists, and Ryan Smith and Ryan Fraser contributed one apiece. Next action for the Minor Bantams is next Thursday at 8:15 at QSWC Rink A in Belleville against the Kingston Minor Frontenacs.

Sheep advocate continues fight after raid By Sue Dickens

Trying to postpone the inevitable, a clearly upset Montana Jones had to turn over the four remaining heritage lambs on her property to the CFIA during a raid last Saturday morning after being served with a warrant. Photo: Ursula Fugger

EMC News - Hastings Faced with foreclosure on her 100-acre farm, Montana Jones seemed dazed by the events of the morning. Last Saturday about 8 a.m. a convoy of vehicles arrived on her property, Wholearth Farmstudio, and police shut off access as officials with the Canada Food Inspection Agency (CFIA), armed with a warrant, proceeded to search for any remaining Shropshire sheep. “They had a use of force authorization,” she said, still trying to comprehend what had happened. Jones’ efforts to save her flock of rare heritage Shropshire sheep has been the centre of controversy and national media attention since the CFIA decided to quarantine her farm after a sheep born in 2006 to an Alberta farm was said to test positive for scrapie three years later. By 10 a.m. local media had arrived but only after four lambs had already been load-

ed onto a truck and removed, taken to Ottawa to be euthanized later that day. “It was all very intimidating,” said Jones as she tried to gather herself to talk about what had just happened. “I still have eight ewes three lambs and two rams that are Shropshire … just not the genotype they want,” she said while gathering her thoughts. “There is a move to wipe out ARQ/ARQ sheep as they have been considered to be a susceptible genotype for possible scrapie,” said Jones in an earlier posting on one of her web sites. Sheep with genotype ARQ/ARQ, (denoting polymorphisms at codons 136, 154, and 171), are susceptible to scrapies, according to the CFIA. “I had 75 in the flock at this time two years ago,” she said looking around her farm with a desolate expression on her face. It was at the time, the largest flock in Canada. There is only a handful of these left. Please see “Fund raiser” on page 3

Medallist Liz Manley to join Hockeyville party By Richard Turtle

EMC News - Stirling The stars are coming out to Hockeyville. While NHL contract negotiations have resulted in the postponement of the planned NHL pre-season game between the Columbus Blue Jackets and the Toronto Maple Leafs, Hockeyville celebrations are moving ahead this weekend and,

along with the Stanley Cup parade, there will be plenty of familiar faces joining the fun and hitting the ice at the local rink. Former Trenton resident and Olympic silver medallist Elizabeth Manley will be participating in Hockeyville celebrations, conducting a pair of skating clinics Sunday morning. Manley, who skated to a second-place

finish in the 1988 Winter Olympics, was also a threetime Canadian champion and a top ten finisher five times in the World Championships in the 1980s. “Having Elizabeth Manley come to our little community is such an honour,” says the Stirling Figure Skating Club’s Laurie McMurray. And while participants in the clinics have

already been determined, McMurray says the public is welcome to watch from the stands. As well, photo and autograph sessions will be held during the last 15 minutes of each clinic. The STARskaters clinic will be from 10 to 11 a.m. with the Canskaters taking the ice from 11 a.m. until noon. But Manley isn’t the only

Canadian skating star expected this weekend. Along with hockey’s most famous trophy, the Stanley Cup, visitors to Hockeyville will also have a chance to meet several former NHLers as well as today’s Belleville Bulls. Beginning at 11:30 a.m., the Stanley Cup parade will run west along Front Street from Wells Ford to the arena where activities will contin-

ue until 3 p.m. Sunday night features a celebrity hockey game which will include appearances by Hockey Night in Canada’s Ron MacLean and former NHLers Rob Ray, Jamie Allison, Gary Leeman, Mike Johnson and many more. Tickets for the game have already been issued. Immediately after the parade, several players will be Please see “Hockeyville” on page 3

EMC News - Brighton - A local student has qualified for the grand prize final in a national photo contest. East Northumberland Secondary School student Hannah Rittwage won round two of the Learning Partnership fourth annual Ultimate Dream Job Contest. Voting ended one second before midnight Sunday and when the results were announced at noon Monday, her mom called to let her know. She had to call back to make sure she heard right. “I thought I was going to pass out,” said Hannah. The contest is open to students across Canada starting Grade 9 this fall. Contestants submit a photo representing their dream job, along with a short explanation, and each week the ten best will be displayed online for voting. The top three win prizes and the winner advances to the finalist gallery where the public will elect a winner. Identified on the web site only as “Prosecutor,” Hannah wrote, “It is my dream to be a prosecuting lawyer and I believe that Lady Justice represents the job perfectly. I love the idea of representing justice in our society, making whoever had committed a crime pay for it justifiably.” The inspiration for law and order comes from her dad, Deputy-mayor Tom Rittwage, who works at Warkworth Institution. “I’ve been interested in the law since I was 12,” said

Ways to lower car insurance rates at any age Drivers should look for more savings regardless of driver profile. Auto insurance is a major expense in a household budget. While it’s mandatory to have insurance, overpaying is not necessary. There are simple ways of getting a more affordable auto insurance rate, regardless of age or driving experience. NEW DRIVERS Use of a ‘good student discount’ is one way to save on insurance for a young driver. Many insurance companies offer a discount for students who carry a minimum required grade average. Another way to save is by taking a driver education course from an approved school; to learn the rules of the

road. Be sure to inquire about these options, as they may not always be advertised. DRIVERS OVER 25 There may have been some improvement in yearly premiums for drivers with some driving experience. Don’t forget to also ask about further discounts. These may include: installing a security system, driving an eco-friendly car, or installing safety features such as winter tires. If recently married, combine policies with your spouse and take advantage of bulk discounting by having more than one car insured with the company. EXPERIENCED DRIVERS An experienced driver with a good driving record may be eligible for better insurance rates; the key is to find the insurance company that will offer the lowest rate. Shopping around for car insurance is the easiest way to find a better way. Other ways

to save include changing your deductible – perhaps carrying a higher deductible; or, combining home and auto insurance policies with the same insurance company. DRIVERS OVER 55 YEARS Mature drivers over 55 years old may qualify for some of the best rates available. Some insurance companies across Canada specialize in getting the best rates for mature drivers. There are also retirement benefits to keep in mind: no commute distance may mean a lower rate. Make sure the insurance company changes the commuting status to pleasure use. MORE TIPS Remember to review your policy frequently. Tickets come off your driving record in three years from the date that you are convicted and accidents come off in six years. If a ticket or accident has come off your driving record,

check with your insurance company to make sure you’re not still paying for that ticket or accident. If you drive an older car, you may want to remove the collision coverage if you feel that it’s not worth the extra yearly cost to compensate you for your vehicle value. This will reduce your insurance premium. Many car insurance companies may actually offer a lower rate to drivers who pay their premium in full on renewal than to those who choose to pay in installments.

Arts Council celebrates October is Arts Month EMC Lifestyles - Brighton - October will be a busy month for the Brighton Arts Council (BAC) as they do their part to celebrate Arts Month in Northumberland County. The arts organization is playing host to no less than 20 workshops and performances throughout the month at their new headquarters, The Gates, on Presqu’ile Parkway as well as a weekend show at East Northumberland Secondary School and the Brighton community centre from October 19 to 21. How does the BAC gauge success after their first summer season at The Gates? More than 700 people signed the guest book from the mid-June opening through the Labour Day weekend and, says BAC president Ron Waddling, “the majority were visitors to the gallery.” “This is a pilot project and things are very much in their early stages,” he said. “We’re gauging it as we go along.” But, he adds with a big grin, there was at least one sale every day the arts and culture centre opened its doors. “October is Arts Month is for all artists, arts groups and our relatives … those who ben-

efit from and support the arts,” says Waddling. “In October, we share experiences and a host of workshops bring members and non-members together to get a good sampling of a wide range of interests in the arts community.” Waddling credits new BAC executive assistant Katie Litt for creating the October program. “This is more than co-ordinating hosts and disciplines,” he said. “It’s a great value and a new opportunity to meet the artists, be entertained and gain a little knowledge in a friendly setting.” Litt, a theatre studies and art history graduate from the University of Guelph, says she’s had experience organizing small events at the Diefenbunker Museum at Carp, Ontario and Barnum House at Grafton but admits the Brighton October is Arts Month agenda is her biggest challenge so far. “It’s been really great,” she said. “All these people are extremely passionate about the arts and extremely passionate about what they do. “And to be able to offer 20 workshops for only five dollars each, it really opens up the arts for everyone. It gives everyone a taste of what Brighton has to offer and there’s

definitely something for everybody.” Workshops include everything from carving Harry Potter wands to painting, dance, drama, history and lots more. One has certainly captured Waddling’s interest. He’s already registered. “The drum circle [on

October 13] is something I personally have never experienced,” he said. “When I heard the host [Frank Blanchet] sing, I signed up. It’s worth five dollars to hear him perform.” Patrons are asked to enroll in advance for the workshops and performances at The Gates. For

more information or to confirm your attendance email <brightonart@xplornet.ca> or call 613210-0851. As a prelude to the October feast of the arts, The Gates is featuring a special five-woman show, Morocco Rouge, this weekend from 1 to 8 p.m. September 29 and 1

to 5 p.m. September 30. On October 1, Margaret Roberts from Blossoms will be holding a workshop on Thanksgiving arrangements from 2-3 p.m. and on Wednesday, October 3, Nichola Battilana will hold a mixed media workshop, Wizards and Witches from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m.

BMX racers wheel to winning season By Richard Turtle

EMC Sports - Stirling Like a lot of kids their age, brothers Cole and Lance Zufelt spent a large chunk of their summer just racing around on their bikes. Unlike most, it earned them a roomful of hardware and the chance to compete in a pair of national competitions in the U.S. next month. Cole, who turns nine in October and Lance, seven, just finished their second full season of BMX racing and their results were pretty hard to beat. Cole, who took the provincial championship on 20-inch wheels and a second place in 24-inch currently ranks second of more than 300 riders in the province. Lance ranked third of all seven-year-olds and currently stands ninth in the province. Racing BMX in Kingston and Gananoque every week as members of the Napaneebased McQuaig Racing Team, the boys have collected plenty of medals and trophies and also received local support from sponsors including Twisted Mounty. And for parents Tim and

Elise it’s meant plenty of driving. “They started racing at the national level this year and have raced in Michigan, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, [and] Kingston,” says Tim. “We’ve traveled to Milton, Chatham, Gan, Ottawa, Kingston for Provincials.” And it’s far from over, with a few trips looming on the horizon. “We’re going to New York this weekend, North Carolina at Thanksgiving and Florida at the end of October,” he says. And for Cole and

Lance, it will mean missing a bit of school in order to compete. And they don’t mind that part either. Despite the travel, it can get pretty intense on race day, they say. Now an Olympic sport, Tim explains, BMX racers use customized bikes and compete in groups of about eight at a time racing around a smooth but windy and hilly course measuring several hundred metres. Crashes are not uncommon, Lance admits showing off a friction burn on a sleeve,

but injuries tend to be minor. Riders, the Zufelts say, are almost certain to have bruises and scars on their shoulders and hips. A race consists of a single lap but these riders and their spectator parents agree that minute or so is flat out excitement. The bikes aren’t exactly standard issue. Often purchased in pieces, each component can be slightly altered to suit the individual rider and assembly, modifications and

reassembly can all become part of the routine. And the requirement for helmets and other protective gear goes without saying. When not on their bikes, the brothers enjoy hockey, soccer, snowboarding and cross-country, among others. But their parents are eyeing up their bikes and planning on getting in on the act as well just for the sheer fun of it. “I’m going to start next year,” Elise says. “It’s a

really good family sport.” And Tim, who raced motocross for 14 years before injuries slowed him down, says you won’t find many workouts that match a trip around a BMX track. The boys’ final race of the season, The Disney Cup in Orlando, will also include a family holiday with plenty of time away from the track. “They deserve it,” says Elise. “They had a really good season.”

What did you do this summer? Cole and Lance Zufelt raced around on their BMX bikes and collected a few trophies. But the Stirling duo have a few races left with national competitions in North Carolina and Florida in October. Photo: Richard Turtle

Royal Canadian Regiment donates

Members of the Royal Canadian Regiment from Niagara donated $500 to the Afghanistan Memorial to Mayor John Williams. Included in the presentation were John Clark, Harry Preenen, Bill Robson, James Kaczmarek and Al McKelvey. Photo: Kate Everson By Kate Everson

EMC News - Trenton Members of the Niagara branch of the Royal Canadian Regiment Association have donated $500 to the Afghanistan Memorial in Bain Park. President Al McKelvey said they discussed making the donation at their recent annual general meeting.

Mayor John Williams accepted the cheque at city hall saying it is important for people to be aware of the significance of the memorial which recognizes our Canadians who died in Afghanistan. “We started working on this campaign for two years,” he said. “I have been to almost all the repats since 2006, and

there were people at the fence lines and on the overpasses.” He said it is important to do something to remember these brave soldiers. There is no government funding for the memorial as the committee wanted it to come from donations across the country. “We wanted it to come
