EMC News - Marmora John Wright, Executive Director for Business Development of Northland Power, and Sarah Charuk, the company’s communications manager, who were en route to a meeting at Loyalist College to develop a new video relating to the Marmora Pumped Storage project, spent a brief time at the
recent council meeting. They listened as plans were made to hopefully host the October 25 County Council meeting in Marmora which will include a tour of the proposed project site. Hastings County Warden Rick Phillips, who also attended the meeting, said he would do everything he could to see that the meeting took place in Marmora,
suggesting that the mayors of Belleville and Quinte West also be invited to attend. Reeve Terry Clemens asked for, and received, a resolution from council to forward an invitation to the the Minister of Energy as well. Mention was made of a press release outlining a successful application to the Tourism Development Fund
for $50,000 toward the Marmora Pumped Storage Tourism Plan, conditional on the approval of the Marmora Pumped Storage Project by the Ministry of Energy. Reeve Clemens extended thanks to the municipality’s Tourism Manager, Typhany Choinard, for her involvement in the application. While Warden Phillips was still in attendance, Cle-
mens asked for a suspension of the rules of order to allow for discussion of electoral boundaries which had been placed further down the agenda. Phillips provided background on the issue, saying proposed changes which would “negatively affect Hastings County by dividing us into three separate Please see “Electoral” on page 3

Fox Run at Madoc Township Public School. Terry Fox’s goal was to raise a dollar for each Canadian. MTPS students collected $195, which was well over a dollar per student! They ran and walked the perimeter of the school yard receiving a stamp for every lap. This year Madoc Township School is celebrating its 15th year of participation in this fund-raising event for cancer research. A representative of the Terry Fox Foundation will be at the school on October 9, to present a 15-year banner to MTPS.

Marmora and Lake receives Tourism Development funds EMC News - Marmora The Municipality of Marmora and Lake is pleased to announce that a recent application to the Tourism Development Fund for the development of the Marmora Pumped Storage Tourism Plan has been approved. The Marmora Pumped Storage Tourism Plan will receive $50,000 toward its development conditional on the overall approval of the Marmora Pumped Storage Project by the Ministry of Energy. The application was submitted in July 2012 and built upon previous meetings with the Ministry of Tourism, Educational Institutions and Northland Power. This funding will assist the municipality in preparing a comprehensive tourism plan that complements the Marmora Pumped Storage Project. The Tourism Development Fund supports projects that encourage tourism investment, tourism product development and industry capacity building.
The aim of the program is to: • support the creation or revitalization of tourism attractions, sites and experiences; • support innovative product development for emerging sectors that have demonstrated market potential; • enhance the quality of tourism services, businesses and practices through training; • assist with tourism planning and capacity support to ensure that the tourism industry is well positioned to make future strategic decisions, address issues and opportunities; • assist communities with investment readiness, investor relations, investment attraction and communications.

Learning experience for all at Agribition says of the many presenters who volunteered their time, transported livestock and spent hours relaying their agricultural experience to groups of about a dozen at a time. Students arriving by the busload were divided into smaller groups to tour the museum and stop at several learning stations along the way. Local farmers brought sheep, pigs, cows, and chickens as part of the event that puts the spotlight on the area’s agricultural community, its products and the processes involved in getting those to market. Manager Sandy Donnan says the October Agribition always makes for a busy end to the season at the museum and requires significant help from program supporters and regular museum contributors. But even volunteers who have attended
several past sessions agree they learn somet hing new each time, whether from beekeepers, dairy farmers or crop specialists. For the first time this year, the event was spread over three days last week instead of the usual two, but officials say they will return to the two-day format next year. “It’s an awful lot to ask of people,” Reid says of the dozen or so volunteers required daily for the learning stations as well as a host of others attending to the large crowds. And for many it was a three-day commitment of several hours each. Students were captivated by many of the presentations with each given the opportunity to make their own butter, view recently hatched chicks or get acquainted with a lamb or a piglet. And in the process they learned more about
where their food and other products come from and the daily work involved on the farm. “But I think they all get something out of it,” Reid adds, noting the museum is committed to offering educational programs like Agribition in a setting that also provides a historical perspective. “There’s a lot to learn.” But the event has other community benefits as well, says Director Roger Barrett. While Agribition is sponsored by several groups and individuals in order to offset any student expense, attendees are asked to bring a non-perishable food item for the local food bank. This year, he says, donations amounted to about 180 kilograms (400 pounds) of canned goods and other grocery staples which will go to the Stirling-Rawdon Community Cupboard.
Electoral boundary changes discussed ridings,” were not acceptable to member municipalities and that not one of them had been in favour of the changes. The Electoral Commission will be asked to consider two options at upcoming public hearings. The preferred one includes the existing 14 member municipalities in Hastings County as well as the City of Belleville and the new riding of “Frontenac-Lennox and Addington-Lanark.” Option two also named the fourteen municipalities, the City of Belleville, the Town of Greater Napanee, as well as “Loyalist Township in the County of Lennox and Addington,” along with the new riding of “FrontenacLanark.” Council members voted to support the county’s proposals. Prior to the vote which supported the request, Phillips suggested that currently, the electoral district was a north south one, and that many of the issues were common ones. He also mentioned that if the changes went ahead as currently outlined, as warden, he would be working with three different members of both legislatures, rather than the current one from each. • Anyone attending upcoming council meetings will be pleased to know that the sound system will soon be improved, council having approved the purchase of six desktop and one wireless microphone at a total cost of $2,722.17. Repeated
complaints from the public, indicating difficulties in hearing council, staff and delegates during meetings, led to the move. The money for the purchase will be taken from the 2012 contingency fund. • A request made during the September 18 meeting regarding the possibility of closing to traffic the portion of McGill Street leading to main street, resulted in a suggestion that Manager of Transportation Ron Derry investigate and report to council as to the feasibility of such a move. • Ratepayers on Cameron and Linn Streets, concerned about both the volume and speed of traffic, have requested the installation of a three-way stop at the intersection of the two streets. Ron Derry reviewed the situation and agreed with the residents. In a report to council, he noted motorists were using the route to bypass the main intersection at #7 and Forsyth Street, and that a three-way stop might “deter traffic from using this as an alternative route.” Council agreed and the signs will be installed. One of the residents, Graham Reid, attended the meeting and took advantage of the public input portion to thank council for their quick response to the situation. • Council members voted to support a recommendation made by CAO Ron Chittick to develop an asset management plan, with an expression of interest to be submitted for funding
support under the provincial plan known as Building Together. A letter from Minister of Infrastructure Bob Chiarelli explained the goals of such a strategy as including, “making good asset management planning universal; moving toward optimal use of a full range of infrastructure financing tools; and addressing the structural challenges facing small communities.”

Lions provide screening for both visual and auditory problems By Judy Backus
Ow fOr Order nn this year atiO install
EMC News - Marmora Several specially trained members of the Marmora Crowe Valley Lions Club arrived at the local schools last week to conduct vision and hearing tests on the Senior Kindergarten and Grade 1 students. This is the second year the program has been in place locally. Russ Mitchell, one of several members of the Marmora Crowe Valley Lions Club who has received special training, commented
that over the time the tests have been in place, both vision and hearing deficits have been detected. Information included in a District A-3 Lions pamphlet outlines the screening procedures which check the students’ vision for distance as well as alignment to ascertain if “both eyes are working together.” The use of an auto refractor determines if the child should be referred to an eye care professional. The pamphlet stresses that the screening is not a
complete eye examination, but “identifies children who have trouble seeing things at a distance, up close, or who have difficulty making both eyes work together.” The hearing portion of the testing is accomplished in a very few minutes with the child being instructed
through headphones and various levels of sound, to point to easily identifiable items, such as an ice cream cone or a fire engine, located on a picture chart. A report on both the vision and hearing aspects of the testing is sent home to the parents of each child.

EMC News - Marmora The cruise season might be over, but members the #7 Classic Cruisers, are far from idle. During each cruise night, volunteers were busy selling tickets on 50/50 and die cast car draws. The proceeds from these, along with contributions made by individuals and businesses, support donations made by the club within the community. Last week, breakfast clubs at the three local schools received funds totalling $3,856.08, raised through the sale of the die cast draw tickets along with donations. Sacred Heart School received $1,198.65; Earl Prentice Public School $1,240.30; and Marmora Senior Public School $1,423.43. The very popular 50/50 draws, held throughout the season, saw $2,578.33 go to Heart of Hastings Hospice
House and $4,702.35 (which included a generous contribution from a local business) targeted toward the Marmora and Lake Splash Pad fund. A group of car club members arrived at Sacred Heart School on October 3 to present the cheque during an assembly called just for the occasion. Enthusiastic applause erupted when the amount of the donation was announced. Principal Bob Murphy explained prior to the gathering that the breakfast club was a popular daily event at the school, open to all and attended by a core group of between 15 and 20, with some days seeing up to 40 students dining in the gym prior to the start of class. In addition to breakfast, there is always a basket filled with nutritious snacks available, for as Murphy said, “If you’ve got an empty belly, it’s pretty hard to learn!”

Members of the Sky family, Miriam, Joel, Tom, Gabriel and Seth, hosted by the Pentecostal Church, brought the very talented, energetic and inspirational group, Celtic Revival to Marmora over Thanksgiving weekend.
EMC News - Marmora Celtic Revival, a Prince Edward Island based family of musicians, arrived in town for three fast-paced performances over the past weekend. The first two were held on the evenings of October 5 and 6 while the third took place during the regular Sunday morning service at Marmora Pentecostal Church. Billed as Prince Edward Island’s Premier Irish Dance Show, the group lived up to the expectations of all, filling the community centre with wonderful music, amazing and versatile talent, humour, fast-paced, intricate step dance moves, and a Gospel message for all. On Sunday evening, they travelled to Norwood to perform for residents at Maple View Retirement Centre, then it was off to Plevna and Kaladar before
heading to the west coast of Canada, then back through the United States in time for Christmas at home. The group of nine, including family members and two students, arrived in town from their previous performance in Ottawa, travelling in the cozy confines of a van, towing a trailer filled with light and sound equipment. An appreciative crowd, comprised of people from Marmora, Madoc, Havelock, Norwood, Gilmour and beyond, gathered on Friday night to listen, clap along and respond with enthusiasm as the group presented one lively piece after another during the two-hour performance. The multi-talented group, with dad, Tom at the head of the family, is comprised of three brothers, Seth, Joel and Gabriel, along with their sister, Miriam. Among them they play a
wide range of instruments including guitar, bass, fiddle, piano, flute, drums and saxophone. As well, they sing and dance, all of which combine to result in a memorable evening. As the program very accurately states, “This is a show you won’t want to miss!” Just prior to the second set, Pastor Alvin Peddle said of the performance, “It’s a wonderful evening of uplifting music with a positive message of life that comes through faith in Jesus Christ.” One audience member, Suzan Cuddy, commented, “It’s a fantastic show. The dancers are so quick and light on their feet. The show was so entertaining, the time flew by!” June Vilneff, another Marmora resident who also enjoyed the performance, referred to the group as being “very talented and personable.”
Junior and Senior Kindergarten children hear about safe play
By Judy Backus
EMC Lifestyles - Marmora and Lake - Alana Deubel, Central Hastings OPP Community Services Officer, has been visiting all the schools within the detachment area taking with her a message of safety for the Junior and Senior Kindergarten children. Whether it related to bus, bike or play safety, the children at Sacred Heart listened intently on October 3, responding readily to questions asked and, in many cases, offering their own insights. Elmer the Safety Elephant, who has been on the scene for many years, figured in the presentation which reminded all to look both ways when crossing the street, to stay seated on the school
bus, to play in a safe location away from the road, and to always wear a seat belt. The use of 911 was also discussed with the class of 29, who knew that it should be used only for emergency situations to call for police or ambulance assistance. Another segment of the half-hour discussion centred on what the children should do if they happened to be in a store and became separated from their parents, the suggestion being to stay in one place and call out, identifying something nearby. Another recommendation put forward by Deubel was to approach a woman for assistance, but, she told them, “Never leave the store with a stranger.”

Maybe it’s time to move to the city Dear Editor, This letter is in response to your article entitled “Resident wants bounty on wolves, coyotes” published on the front page of EMC last week. As an environmental scientist and someone who lives in the country (partially for my love of wildlife) I was appalled at Ms. Agnes Thompson’s call for a bounty on wolves and coyotes. Eastern wolves are a species of concern and protected by Canada’s Species at Risk Act. Wolf populations have declined dramatically in the past century. The Ministry of Natural Resources estimates there are only about 8,000 individual wolves throughout the entire province (compare that to the over 30,000 cows in Hastings county alone). They are top predators, and anyone with any understanding of ecology knows the importance of top predators to keep systems in check. I would like to think anyone with half a brain knows this,
Dear Editor, When I got my latest property tax installment notices in the mail, a list on one side of the doublesided insert about the budget our municipal council approved back in March 2012 made me curious. The municipality has a scanned copy of this page online, as a jpg: < h t t p : / / w w w. m a rmoraandlake.ca/94/images/Budget%201.jpg>. Notice that the first on the list of “projects in 2012”, included in the capital budget, is an “Energy Conservation Program”? Here’s how this 2012 project was cost-estimated in the March 2012 budget that you can also review on the municipal site: Energy Conservation Program - Total Estimated Cost: $30,000 2012 Estimated Cost: $10,000 (Net Capital Levy: $10,000) Then there is an estimated cost of $5,000 for each of the following four

years When I went to town hall to pay my tax bill, I asked for the information on this 2012 project only described as an “Energy Conservation Program” that I’d never heard or seen anything about before. The response? The municipality has no information on this 2012 project aka Energy Conservation Program because it has not been developed yet and that is why it was only estimated in the budget. Assumedly an estimate was approved by council with no details available for them either? Add the mysterious details of this local “Energy Conservation Program” to those of the publicly undisclosed, locally developed “Community Improvement Plan” apparently pre-approved by the MMAH in 2010.

Dear Editor, Once again the “Pumped Storage” project is jumping into the limelight in Marmora. This time, however, it will cost all of the taxpayers of Ontario. The municipality has recently obtained approval for a $50,000 grant (contingent on project approval) to develop a tourism “Plan” complementing the Northland Power project. Isn’t it lovely that tax grant money (through the municipality) is being used to promote a tourism plan for a private project and the company proposing it? On October 25 at 10 a.m. our little community will apparently be playing host to a county council meeting, a meeting at which Northland Power will be making a presentation and to which the Minister of Energy, our MP and our MPP have all been invited to attend. Apparently they even plan to have a project site tour. I would like to extend an invitation to all nonsupporters to attend this meeting so the province and Northland are left with no doubt that this project does not have the community wide support that has been claimed for it. The time has come for the people of Marmora to show the town council and province that they don’t all support the “Marmora Pumped Storage” project. Again a concerned mensch, Cindy Buchanan, Marmora

by domestic dogs than by the wild ones (i.e. wolves and coyotes). But, like the uninvited house guest, no one is suggesting a cull of those. Because of the yearround open hunting season, farmers can (and do) kill nuisance wolves and coyotes that attack or bother livestock, and most insurance programs offer compensation for wildlife attacks. If Ms. Agnes Thompson does not like seeing the odd coyote around her home, I suggest she move to a condo in downtown Toronto. However, I must warn you Agnes, you may still get the odd uninvited bird or squirrel on your balcony. Please remember these animals were here first and we are invading their territory. May I suggest we all learn to get along a little better with our wild neighbours, and that no one support this crazy call for a bounty. Sincerely, Dr. Judi Krzyzanowski BSc, MSc, PhD, Stirling

some more barn cats, I know a few people who would be more than happy to provide her with some. I just adopted a barn kitten myself, trust me, their populations are doing fine. Then there is the “there are no deer” comment. I don’t know where Ms. Thompson lives, but I see deer all the time, and I have never seen a coyote. If we didn’t have these wild Canis spp. people would be calling for a deer and rabbit cull because they would be too prolific and would be considered “pests.” This is what happens in areas without predators. Hastings County already has wolf and coyote hunting—open year round— and their pelts can be sold for a profit. But that isn’t enough for Ms. Thompson, she wants people to be paid directly for their kills and to go out stalking these innocent creatures without reason. As for the safety of livestock, more livestock are killed each year in Ontario

but …. Why is Ms. Thompson calling for such drastic measures? Namely because she spotted two coyotes on her porch which later “ran away.” What dangerous creatures they sound like! My complaint would be that they didn’t stick around for a photo-shoot! I get uninvited guests showing up on my porch all the time, be they Girl Guides selling cookies, Jehovah’s Witnesses trying to convert me, or God forbid, neighbours, friends or family just coming to say “hello.” Some of the latter even sometimes expect to stay the entire weekend! It sounds as though Ms. Thompson got off easy. Then there’s the threat to barn cats, which are being “cleared out of the barn.” The last time I checked, barn cats are not a threatened species. In fact this area is overrun with feral cats. They need something to help keep their populations down. If Ms. Thompson would like

EMC Editorial - The major powers have all had their nuclear weapons on permanent alert, ready to launch in minutes or hours, for the past 40 years. Changes in the level of political risk, even the end of the War, have had Gwynne Dyer Cold little or no effect on that. But wouldn’t it be safer and cheaper to “simply put (the nuclear deterrent) away in a cupboard and keep it as a contingency in case there were ever to be a deterioration in the global security picture”? In terms of orthodox strategic thinking, that is heresy. But the man who made that heretical suggestion was Sir Nick Harvey, until last month the defence minister in charge of the British government’s nuclear capability review. Replaced in the recent cabinet reshuffle, Harvey is now free to speak his mind. At last week’s Liberal Democratic Party conference, he did precisely that, saying that he “wanted his legacy to be bringing the United Kingdom down the nuclear ladder”—although, he admitted, “we might struggle to persuade the British public to get off the ladder altogether.” It isn’t just the British public that loves its nukes. The American, Russian and French publics would be equally reluctant to give up their nuclear deterrent forces, even though they face no plausible threat of a nuclear war. (The Chinese public isn’t really paying attention yet.) But maybe you could at least persuade the great powers to put the damned things away, and Britain would be a good place to start. The orthodoxy still says that every selfrespecting great power must have its nuclear weapons on permanent alert, in order to deter a surprise attack by some other nuclear power. Nuclear “Pearl Harbours” allegedly lie in wait around every corner. But, as Harvey told The Guardian newspaper, “If you can just break yourself out of that frankly almost lunatic mindset for a second, all sorts of alternatives start to look possible, indeed credible.” What drove Harvey into this bold assertion was the fact that Britain can no longer afford its nuclear deterrent. It will have to replace its current fleet of four Trident II ballistic-missile submarines by 2028, and the estimated cost is $20 to $30 billion. That’s less than two weeks’ worth of American military spending, but for Britain it would mean cutting deeply into every other area of the defence budget. The British army is “driving around in vehicles which are literally about to fall to pieces,” he said. The navy needs a new fleet
of frigates, and the air force is committed to buying the joint strike fighter. They can’t have it all, and some senior officers are asking: “Is the opportunity cost of having a new generation of nuclear weapons too high, in terms of what it would prevent us doing on other fronts.” So what are the alternatives to eternal hair-trigger readiness for an attack nobody really expects to come? You could just get rid of all your nuclear weapons, of course, and you’d probably be just as safe as you are now. But if you can’t get your head around the idea of nuclear nakedness, you could at least store your magical cloak in the closet, safely out of the reach of foolish children. What Harvey was actually proposing was that Britain should get rid of its missile-firing submarines when they get too old, and rely on a few cruise missiles with nuclear warheads to keep everybody else honest. Store them somewhere safe, and don’t even take them out unless the international situation has got dramatically worse. In fact, why not do that right now? Those “boomers”—nuclear-powered submarines carrying long-range ballistic missiles with multiple nuclear warheads—were really designed for “retaliation from the grave” if all the owner’s cities, military bases, ports and hamburger stands were destroyed in a massive surprise nuclear attack. Does anybody expect such a thing in the current era? Well, then … And the best thing about putting the nukes in the cupboard is that you eliminate the risk of ugly accidents. In 2009 two boomers, one British and the other French, actually collided underwater. Even at a time unprecedented in world history, when no great power fears attack by any other, it would have been a frightening event if those two submarines had been American and Chinese. So put the toys away, boys. Don’t expect the Israelis, the Indians and the Pakistanis to follow suit, because they live in parts of the world where full-scale war with a powerful enemy is still a possibility. But together they have only about 500 nuclear weapons; the five nuclear-armed great powers have around 11,000. Somebody has to start, and Britain is the likeliest candidate of the five. Sir Nick Harvey lost his job in the cabinet reshuffle, but the “nuclear capability review” is still under way. Even Britain’s generals think another generation of fully deployed missile-firing submarines would deprive them of most of the other new weapons they want, so the issue will stay on the table. Dumping the boomers and locking the remaining nuclear warheads in the cupboard would be a useful halfway house on the way to getting rid of them entirely.
Letters to the editor
True Canadian statesmen
Dear Editor, According to Mr. Rolly Ethier, Trudeau was incompetent. Trudeau kept Canada together during the separatist era. Trudeau brought the Constitution home. The Canadian government has always had a deficit. The exception is Mulroney’s GST which was supposedly a temporary tax and that reduced the deficit for a couple of years. Harper’s government is in a deficit. Harper is selling Nexen to China, another Canadian resource gone along with Mulroney’s NAFTA, more resources to the USA including water which will be piped to the U.S. regardless of Canada’s need for its own water. Harper’s government has made a diplomatic arrangement with Britain. It appears Canada is regressing to colonialism. Harper closed the Iran embassy and Baird’s commitment to Israel was a trade off for Harper’s International Statesman Award by a non-prestigious Jewish organization. PM Netanyahu states Israel is a democracy. Confiscating Palestinian land is not democratic. Obama has to reverse capitalist Bush’s eight years of incompetence and international ignorance. Playing at war brought the USA and the world to its knees, not for democracy but oil. Trudeau, Pearson gave Canadians their flag and Chre-
tien said no to the USA Iraq war. All three were Canadian statesmen. H. Howarth, Tweed
How about a little courtesy
Dear Editor, I have been reading the back and forth letters on F. Bloggs’ opinion on hunting. While I do not share all the opinions in that letter, I can relate. Every Sunday as early as 6:30 a.m. (half an hour before sunrise as is legal), I am woken up with blasts of gunfire from geese hunters near my property. I checked and this is a perfectly legal way to disturb the peace. Yet, if I were to blast music or set off fireworks at that very early hour, police could be called and I would receive a fine. I am not against hunting, however, when it infringes on my right to peace, quiet and a restful sleep, then it is a problem. I understand that the fowl are best hunted very early, but it is not neighbourly to disturb our peace. Please stop doing it so early near our homes. Tom Smeraldo, Warkworth
Editor’s note: Hockeyville celebrations have come and gone but that certainly won’t stop people from talking about Stirling-Rawdon’s national success story especially when so many other communities did their part to ensure a victory. With an NHL pre-season game yet to come, Hockeyville will live on for another year. Though not officially connected with Hockeyville, this coming Saturday will see at least a half dozen NHL players return to the Stirling arena to skate with house league teams throughout the day. The person responsible for keeping Hockeyville in the news at the EMC, reporter Richard Turtle, has been thanked profusely by the Hockeyville committee for his help and would like to use this space to return the favour to the Local Organizing Committee. To everyone on the LOC (lol), my hat goes off. Repeatedly. So please tell your peeps to stop thanking me. Here’s the real deal and you can share this or not. Well, you can share anything I say when I’m stupid enough to write it down. I do it to you. But I have to say you guys as a committee are really something else. From a community newspaper point of view, everything you did was newsworthy. So no thanks due. You organized pond hockey tournaments and scarecrow contests that involved hundreds of people as participants so thousands more could say, “Wow.” I have to write about that. It was all community-based, community supported and community focused. You hosted a four-wheeler rally, ball hockey, Ladies Night (which was totally crazy from what I hear), Kraft Dinner cook-off … and more parades than even Mike Wells could have predicted. And even then he was ready to plan another. You got council behind you with unanimous support and without hesitation (rare considering the future requests and approvals expected) and they were there at the end of it behind the benches in the alumni game, in the parade as participants and in the crowds during the day’s rink entertainment. Each and every one of them. So they cared too. But you want to know what’s crazy? You and your gang of Badgleys and Burfoots, Belangers and Brandts and a whole lot of people whose names don’t begin with the letter B, accomplished the unthinkable. And really and truly we both know none of this had anything to do with winning some national title called Hockeyville. It was all about where you come from and knowing who your friends are. A bunch of your underlings told me their theories on why it all worked so well. In retrospect too, but it was the same from the start. It was fluid and organic, they said, though maybe not those words. All about generating community awareness toward the arena and providing a few dollars for a facelift. Good people, great communication, and all with a total commitment to the regular meetings with no complaints of the prep work in between. Engaging the community, offering a common focus, making it fun. Just so you know, they blabbed all the way since this whole thing got started, just like the leaks we media geeks love so much, so I really do know more than I should but here’s what they’ve been saying that matters. They talked about how you were all well-acquainted with each other from the get-go, how you lived in a ridiculously caring community and how each of you had a really solid understanding of the personal and individual strengths in the group. They talked about leadership and initiative, of course, and they talked about dedication but, quite honestly, that was secondary. It was apparently all about chemistry. And everyone knew exactly what had to happen in this little experiment to make it work. Nobody could be more important than anybody else. I believe you accomplished just that. Your gang, the LOC, was this weird little catalyst of self-appointed and unimportant souls who somehow bonded generations and collapsed all those other social boundaries to unite a community for a fantasy called Hockeyville. On the surface, it was Hockeyville. Woo-hoo. Kraft Hockeyville. National attention, hockey stars and Stanley Cup visits. Gees, even an NHL pre-season game. Very cool, but a pipedream for sure. You’d need a million votes. Good luck Cindy Brandt and all the muscle you can muster in this little town. Bs and Cs and Ds and Es. But underneath, it was way, way bigger than that. And no fantasy at all. Underneath it was about a guy named Barry Wilson, who encouraged a lot of kids over a lot of years to simply be their best. And it was about another guy named Wayne Brown, who never stopped being a kid even after his own were old enough to tell him to grow up. And it was about a bunch of guys before them and around them and like them who helped make people like Barry and Wayne mean so much. They made people say, “Wow.” And they made people say it at themselves and their own accomplishments for the simple reason that someone else pointed it out to them. Suddenly, what one person did really made a difference. You guys somehow encouraged your connections to cast four million votes. Now that’s woo-hoo. So I just want to personally say thanks to you and your LOC for giving me something to write about. You guys did the work. I just did my job. I watched, I reported, I hope I was fair. You guys kicked butt. Cheers, Richard Northeast EMC - Thursday, October 11, 2012
Letter My personal Action Plan for Prime Minister Harper Dear Editor, A letter to Stephen Harper. I expect being Prime Minister of Canada has to be a very challenging occupation. God knows keeping your hair photogenically neat and tidy at all times is a demanding challenge in itself. Undoubtedly you can use all of the help you can get. No, I am not a hairdresser, but with your
eventual ideological success in mind I have decided to offer my other varied life experiences to help you reshape Canada from now until the next general election in 2015. Although you recently appointed five new senators, including the two seats which were vacant in Ontario where I reside, and despite the fact these new appointees can sit in the senate until they are 75
years old, odds are that one of Ontario’s 24 seat warmers will drop dead before too long. At the outset let me assure you the base salary of $132,300 per annum is totally acceptable, especially considering the other perks of office which are certain to flow my way. As an educated economist you will easily comprehend the savings attributable to the fact that the cost to feed
me in your parliamentary cafeteria will come nowhere close to what it must cost to keep Senator Mike Duffy gastronomically satisfied. Under the Constitution Act of 1867 it is required that senators own land worth $4,000 and other real and personal property worth $4,000. I assure you there will be no problem meeting these requirements, unlike back in 1997 when Catholic nun Peggy Butts, who had taken a vow of poverty, was almost turned down by the Governor-General on these grounds. Mercifully the Catholic order came to her rescue by granting her title to a small tract of land which likely assisted government revenues as the land thus moved into taxable status. I am not sure how Peggy altered her poverty vow but it will be unnecessary for any church to come to my aid as I have long since abandoned my notion of “voluntary poverty” and now own a good sized garden plot. I would also like to assure you that unlike your past appointee, the young Patrick Brazeau, I will not miss 65 per

cent of assigned committee meetings and will show for Senate sit-downs whenever a vote is required. Neither will I call journalist Jennifer Ditchburn a bitch on my Twitter account. However, we should not be too critical of Patrick’s meagre attendance record nor his twit-terms since his brain may still be a bit addled from the “technical knock out” Justin Trudeau recently delivered to him in that Ottawa boxing ring. Should a senate seat become available I want you know you can count on me to raise my hand in favour of whatever it is you are in favour of at the time. Should you wish to spend billions of Canadian tax dollars to buy those American F35 fighterbombers I am with you. Then, if you want to use them to join Israel in the upcoming bombing of Iran back into the stone age … I’m your man. On issues closer to home, like your upcoming Omnibus Budget Bill II which will need senate approval in the near
future, have no fear. Reading 400 pages of that type of material is not my idea of a good time. If you put it in there Stephen, I will simply assume it is necessary for the wellbeing of the Canada we all know and love. I expect Rick Mercer’s claim that his lawyers have assured him one of the clauses in this Omnibus Budget Bill will allow the CIA and FBI to come in and arrest Canadians on Canadian soil and throw them into an American prison is just another joke. If not, perhaps Mr. Mercer will soon be enjoying an allexpenses-paid vacation in the sunny south along with Marc Emery? Alternatively, perhaps Rick could be found a senate seat next to me. The class clown always made public school bearable for me so perhaps he could do the same for me in the Senate. Looking forward to hearing from you soon, Yours truly, Alan Coxwell, Stirling

If you can … Adopt-A-Child this winter the company, Belleville and Stirling-Rawdon police services and local Ontario Provincial Police services. Throughout the month of October, Quinte Broadcasting’s three radio stations will again announce the clothing needs of children (while still protecting their privacy) to find donors. Earle explained the program is geared to help lowincome working families outfit their children for winter, adding the program fills the niche for working families. “There is not a lot of support out there for working families. It is important because the kids need to be warm and be regular kids to go outside and play,” she said. She estimated it takes an average of $150 to outfit a child with a snow suit, boots and mitts or gloves.
She clarified that the program accepts only new donations of clothing. The Salvation Army and places like St. Vincent De Paul deal in used clothing and would happily accept donations of previously worn clothes she said.
Cash and cheques payable to Adopt-A-Child are accepted at the Belleville Police station, Dundas Street East at George Street; Quinte Broadcasting, 10 South Front Street; and the offices of Stirling-Rawdon Police and both Central

The budget for this project was set at $150,000 and Janbar Electric was awarded the project at $104,000. At the Sidney office at Tucker’s Corners work was completed with a budget of $10,000 and final cost of the project was $9,148. The masonry joints were repaired, with a budget of $8,000 and the final cost was $3,980. At the Batawa Community Centre the repair of the tile floor was budgeted for $5,000 and final cost was $4,600. The kitchen renovation and electrical upgrades have been deferred to 2013. The YMCA shower area wall tile and floor replacement is completed. The budget was set at $70,000. Unexpected work had to be completed on the floor drains but staff is expecting final invoicing to be under budget by $10,000. The Trenton Arena Pad 1 new sound system is completed. The budget was set at $40,000 and final cost was $37,800. Refrigeration equipment replacement is completed, with a budget of $90,000 and final cost was $74,500.

Atom Blues turn purple for October
EMC News - Stirling Members of the Stirling Blues are thinking a little bit more about purple. October has been recognized in Ontario as Child Abuse Prevention Month and players from the Atom team were given rolls of purple stick tape and a few important things to think about. Visited by Quinte Children’s Foundation Exec-
utive Director Connie Reid during a practice last week, players were encouraged to stick up for their peers and show their support. The campaign, featuring the signature purple ribbon, will include future visits to other dressing rooms with the same message. And the same purple tape. “We are taping our sticks with purple hockey tape

in support of Child Abuse Prevention Month,” Reid, dressed in a purple sweater, told the players, adding the awareness should continue long after October. “Not only are you wearing purple to prevent child abuse,” Reid said, “you are supporting children and families that right now are being abused. Wearing purple says you care.” Combating child abuse is a cause that involves the entire community from individuals to special interest groups, she says. “We want people to prevent child abuse and we want people to know there are organizations to help, like Children’s Aid.” Individuals are encouraged to report signs of abuse to someone they trust including parents, teachers and coaches.

EMC News - Belleville - If you’re going to have a fun murder mystery dinner, you may as well have an “authentic” villain. The Hastings County Historical Society has arranged just that for their
Saturday, October 27, event in the Belleville Travelodge Hotel when “Big Al Capone celebrates his birthday.” The dinner and participatory theatre will be guided by professional actors from a Hamilton-based mystery
theatre company in a rum running days theme featuring the Quinte area connection to that historic period and some of Al Capone’s Quinte area rum running buddies. Tickets, at $65, include both dinner and entertainment and are available at Greenley’s Book Store, 258 Front Street in downtown
Belleville or from Richard Hughes at 613-961-7772. Proceeds from this fundraising event will go toward financing the new Archives building. The Historical Society invites fun lovers to grab their favourite moll or mobster and “share an evening with the famous characters of rum running days.”

Drag racers celebrate memory of Jim Parkhurst By Stephen Petrick
EMC News - Shannonville - In groups of two the cars turned a corner and approached a red traffic light. When the light turned green tires squealed, fumes
filled the air and the engines burst into a roar that echoed through the park. The scene repeated itself hundreds of times over Thanksgiving weekend in a manner that would have
made Jim Parkhurst proud. The Second Annual Jim Parkhurst Memorial drag race event took place at Shannonville Motorsport Park October 5, 6 and 7, with more than 100 auto
enthusiasts descending on the straight track to race their cars against opponents head to head. It was a way for the local auto racing community to pay tribute to a man who lived for drag racing. Jim Parkhurst took over operations of the drag race track at Shannonville about ten years ago, with partners Allan Ray and John Chatwood. Although Shannonville Motorsport Park has been a fixture in this region for generations, the straight drag race track located well north of the grandstand, a stone’s throw from Highway 401, has existed for only about 20 years. When Ray, Parkhurst and Chatwood took it over, it was not heavily used. But over time the sport has grown slowly, Ray said. Ray also said his late friend would be thrilled at how the sport has grown. Despite cool, cloudy weather there was a good turnout at the event, with racers travelling from as far away as western Ontario and Quebec to compete against locals from the Kingston to Quinte West corridor. The event featured long, aerodynamic super-pro dragster cars, but it also featured a sportsman class and a street class. Believe it or not, there were even a few modified snowmobiles. Ray was particularly proud of the turnout of young racers. About 25 rac-
ers were in the junior class, for boys and girls ages eight to 16. They were competing for prizes donated by adult racers. The growing number of kids involved in auto racing can directly be attributed to Parkhurst, Ray said. Parkhurst worked with police officers and other community groups to promote the sport. He believed strongly that if young auto enthusiasts had an opportunity to race in a controlled environment, like a race track, they would be less likely to engage in stunt driving or other dangerous hobbies in public. “Jim did a lot of work to get the kids to come here,” Ray said overlooking the one-eighth-mile track as cars flew by. “That’s the kind of guy he was. He was involved with every charity that was around. He was a great, big-hearted guy.” Although the drag racing
community dearly misses Parkhurst, the sport will continue because it has some loyal hardworking families who continue to volunteer their time at events, Ray said. He noted that several of Parkhurst’s family members are still involved in the annual summer drag race series at Shannonville, including daughter Sherry, who was the public address announcer at last weekend’s event. Likewise, Ray had two adult daughters, Becky and Shelley, who were racing at the weekend event. “It’s a sport where, if you grow up around it, it never gets out of your blood,” Ray said, looking out at the crowd of racers. “All of these kids have grown up at the race track.” For results from the Jim Parkhurst Memorial Weekend visit <www.shannonville.com>.

Bulls rout 67’s
SPORTS had two helpers. After a lacklustre performance in their home-opening loss to the Generals last week, the Bulls came out flying Saturday, outshooting Ottawa 16 - 5 in the first frame and 46 - 30 overall. Even the much-maligned power play was working, producing the first two Belleville goals and going 2-for-4 for the night.
Garrett Hooey, who played an integral role in the Belleville power play, was named the game’s first star. “We’ve got about five games in the next eight days so it was nice to pick up two points tonight. You can’t win five in a row if you lose the first one, so I thought it was a good overall effort from the guys tonight,” he said.
Bulls Head Coach George Burnett said it was nice to see a few players get some weight off their shoulders. “It’s good to see guys putting points on the board tonight. We were sending pucks to the net and although I wasn’t thrilled with some of the sloppy play, it was a good offensive effort.”

EMC Sports - Belleville Victory can be sweet. Just ask the Bulls, who skated away with a 5 - 3 victory against the Ottawa 67’s last Saturday night at the Yardmen Arena in Belleville; the 67’s is the very same team that sent the Bulls packing during last
season’s play-offs. Bulls 2012 first-round draft pick, forward Niki Petti, scored his first career OHL goal in the home-ice win. The Bulls lost their Yardmen Arena opener last week to Oshawa. Belleville captain Brendan Gaunce, Russian import Danny Zharkov, veteran Garrett Hooey and
Silas all scored their first goals of the new campaign. Michael Curtis (2), Kuptsov (2), Adam Bignell, Jordan Subban, Scott Simmonds, Carter Sandlak, Gaunce and Hooey earned assists. Steven Janes, Brett Gustavsen and team captain Sean Monahan replied for the 67’s. Jake Cardwell

Clinics offer pro tips to young skaters By Richard Turtle
EMC Sports - Stirling Members of the Stirling and District Minor Hockey Association were offered some professional advice last week as former NHLers and Toronto Maple Leaf staff provided clinics for a total of about 150 young players. Divided into several groups over the two evenings, the clinics provided some new and familiar drills to young members of the lo-
cal hockey association with plenty of spectators turning out as well. “It was really good,” says Local Organizing Committee (LOC) member Dave Brandt, of the two nights of clinics held Monday and Tuesday last week as local Hockeyville celebrations wrapped up. “We had players of all skill levels from house league and rep,” he says, adding the young skaters were
joined on the ice by formerNHLers Bill Derlago, Jack Valiquette, Jamie Allison and Mike Gaul. “They were really good guys,” he notes, “and great with the kids.” Participants were taken through a series of drills under the guidance of several ice veterans who also offered one-on-one advice and encouragement throughout the sessions at the Stirling arena. And it was a treat for participants as well as

Quinte Red Devils Weekly Report EMC Sports - A solid team effort at the Invista Centre in Kingston on Friday night led the KwikKopy Bantams back to .500 and their third win of the season. Austin Labelle’s tally midway through the game stood as the only scoring play. A defensive breakdown gave the Frontenacs a breakaway in the last minute of play, but Jack Moore made a key stop and Quinte left with a 1 - 0 victory to put the team’s record at 3 - 3 on the season. Earlier in the week the Bantams crushed Oshawa 7 - 0 in Marmora. Last weekend the Bantams earned their first win of the season with a 3 - 2 victory over the
Oshawa Generals. Brodie Maracle scored early (assist to Austin Fry), but Oshawa answered back with a short-handed goal. Graiden Maynard then scored a beauty, putting one in the top shelf (assists went to Austin Fry and Brodie Maracle). Oshawa again scored shortly thereafter to tie the game. With three minutes to go in the game, Brodie Maracle scored the winner for the Devils on a power-play (unassisted). Phillipe Gagnon was in net for the win. On Sunday, the North Central Predators visited the RCAF Arena. Goals were scored by Brodie Maracle and Cody Smith with assists going to Trey
Maracle, Austin Labelle, Brodie Maracle and Matt Cavanaugh. However, it wasn’t enough as the Predators went home with a 3 - 2 victory. Jack Moore was in net for the loss. Next up is Central Ontario in Lindsay this Saturday. Carpet One The Quinte Carpet One Minor Atom Red Devils went winless in two ETA league games this weekend. The Devils opened their weekend with a 4 1 loss to the powerhouse Barrie Colts. Brock Kelsh scored the lone Devils goal while Lucas Culhane drew the assist in the loss. Ethan Fraser was between the pipes for the Devils. The Devils then hit the
road for a tilt with the South Central Coyotes and lost 4 - 2. Michael Patrick and Gavin Camp scored in the loss while Kelsh (2) and Isaac Macleod drew assists. Dixon Grimes took the loss in the Devils goal.

Ancient trace fossils found in Marmora marbles EMC News - Marmora The William Shannon Room was the perfect setting for
a dinner highlighting local products followed by educational evening presented by
Marc Forget, a retired science and technology researcher who has made his home in

Marmora. The invitation to the wellattended event read, “Did you know that Marmora is Greek for marble? The marbles of the Marmora area are part of an ancient oceanic carbonate shelf dating between 1.3 and 1.5 billion years old. The shallow tidal shoreline of this tropical sea was teaming with the only known life forms in this early period of evolutionary history. They are called Stromatolites. “Come see local specimens and learn why NASA astrobiologists and geologists are so interested in Stromatolites.” Forget, with help from Lucas Wales, the municipality’s economic development intern, provided a complimentary meal, funded in part through Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs. It consisted of lasagna and salad for all, with Forget making use of local products, having been directed to the Harvest Hastings web site by co-ordinator Louise Livingstone. The tasty
additions to the meal included Maple Dale’s award winning cheddar, water buffalo mozzarella cheese from Stirling, and freshly picked greens from Natural Themes Farm in Frankford. Forget’s synopsis of the evening’s information packed symposium reads: “Stromatolites are solid mounds of alternating layers of sediment and phototrophic cyanobacterial biofilms. Rare colonies are only found in alkaline lakes and hypersaline tidal pools. Phototrophic cyanobacteria are like tiny solar panels that capture the sun’s energy to help them grow. They are some of the most primitive life forms on earth. We thought that stromatolite ecosystems were restricted to sub-equatorial and equatorial zones, but the discovery of stromatolites in Pavilion Lake, B.C., in 1997 changed that. We now understand that stromatolites can thrive in cold deep water. “When stromatolites turn
into fossils, biomolecules turn into molecular fossils. NASA astrobiologists are studying molecular fossils as a signal for signs of life on Mars. NASA recently announced five astrobiology research grants totalling $40 million and one of the most promising candidates for this are fossil stromatolites. “Marble Point in Marmora has an ancient 1.3- to 1.5-billion-year-old colony of fossil stromatolites, and is one of several colonies found in Hastings County. They have been the focus of scientific research in the past.” Forget thinks NASA may become interested in these stromatolite colonies once they have been more fully mapped and characterized, and plans to add these significant geological monuments to next year’s roster of Miners’ Loop sites. He is also working in partnership with the Board of Education to explore the possibility of including Miners’ Loop sites in the education curriculum.

Ladies Night Out fund raiser celebrates girl power By Sue Dickens
EMC News - Campbellford - Celebrating breast cancer awareness month with a Ladies Night Out fund raiser, Jodi Summers of Earth Angel Designs and the Aron Theatre have teamed up to raise money for this worthwhile cause. The money will go to the Campbellford Memorial Hospital Foundation which began its fund raising in earnest earlier this year. “Jodi came to the hospital foundation with the idea for a ladies night out,” said Angela Runciman, administrative assistant. “It’s a celebration of girl power and all about honouring women,” she added. The goal is to raise the $650,000 needed to purchase a state-of-the-art digital mammography machine which will provide women in the area with the most reliable breast cancer detection.
According to the Canadian Cancer Society breast cancer is the most frequently diagnosed cancer among Canadian females, affecting many thousands of women and their families each year, and causing concern for millions more. Breast cancer is one of the most active areas of study today, as researchers tackle the problem from many sides. Some are working to learn more about what causes breast cancer so that one day it might be preventable. Other researchers are finding new and better ways to detect, diagnose and treat the disease. Earlier this year EMC reported that the Canadian Cancer Society announced it is teaming up to pick a fight with cancer with the launch of their first partnered Relay For Life event to help fund a digital mammography machine.
Trent Hills Relay for Life was held in September and raised a reported $115,000 with more money yet to come in. “Jodi thought it would be an event in October during Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the thought was to show a movie at the Aron Theatre and have mocktails and popcorn,” said Runciman, who said the fund raising for the digital mammography unit is still in the early stages so something like this event really helps. “It’s so important. We need this piece of equipment at the hospital as part of our breast screening program and we need it sooner than later,” Runciman added. “Jodi has such an awesome idea for a fund raiser and we are so happy with it.” “The best part is that it’s for women only and you
get a fabulous fun night out with the girls all for $15,” she added with enthusiasm. The digital mammography unit is an “essential tool in the breast screening process and will make our hospital even more equipped to look after us women,” she commented. Ladies Night Out takes place Wednesday, October 17, at 7:30 p.m. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. for mocktails and mingling.
The movie Magic Mike will be shown. “It’s a chick flick,” said Runciman grinning. Magic Mike is a dramatic comedy set in the world of male strippers directed by academy award-winning director Steven Soderbergh (Traffic) and stars Channing Tatum in a story inspired by his real life. The film follows Mike (Tatum) as he takes a young dancer called The Kid (Alex
Pettyfer) under his wing and schools him in the fine arts of partying, picking up women, and making easy money. And there are only 125 tickets available so people should get theirs as soon as possible. Tickets are available at Earth Angel Designs (705632-0909), at the Aron Theatre (705-653-5446) or at the hospital foundation office.
Council backs ATV Club with letter
By Bill Freeman
where there’s a 4.5-metre gravel shoulder, he said. “That pretty much eliminates the possibility of ATVs coming into town. The club is looking to fill those gaps,” said Sharpe. “The county is still a little shortsighted in that part of the bylaw because I think we want them to come into our community.” The other point, he added, is that the county bylaw restricts county road use to a maximum of one kilometre. “That distance isn’t working. There should be some sort of agreement that if the township is in agreement on an application that exceeds the one kilometre it should be considered.” The goal, he says, has been to get ATVs from the EOTA trails to Havelock.
“Because of the one kilometre we can’t connect the east part of the village.” “I’d like to see us draft something on the economic development side,” said Sharpe. Sharpe also suggests that ATV speed limits in the village be lowered from 40 to 20 kilometres an hour. ”That would kind of help out with safety issues in the village as far as the county is concerned.” “The EOTA trail is what it’s all about,” Gerow agreed. “We have to have a way to get people to and from that link.” Gerow is confident a majority of county council will support a “reasonable longterm approach to this because they’ve been watching what’s been going on here.”

Ignite Your Family's Imagination Experience the phenomenon of a hauntingly magical and stirring outdoor exhibit of thousands of hand-carved pumpkins, all set against the night-time backdrop of historic Upper Canada Village.
EMC News - Havelock The Havelock and District ATV Club will get more support from township council in a letter to Peterborough County Council. The letter will speak “positively” about the club’s use of an amendment to the County’s ATV bylaw that has allowed it to use short sections of county roads to link with trails but it will also encourage the county to consider extending the length of those links so there can be a full connection between the Eastern Ontario Trails Alliance network and the village of Havelock. The letter will also underscore the economic and tourism value related to ATV trail use. The county is to review its amended bylaw soon and the ATV Club will bring forward an expanded list of county roads it would like to use as trail links. The club is still waiting for the county to install signs in areas within HBM where use of the shoulder of county roads is permitted. “There has been little or no incident with regard to the plan since it was put in place. There have been no charges by the OPP or anybody else,” Mayor Ron Gerow noted. “I think the ATV Cub has done a good job on this in terms of both administration and policing,” Gerow added. ATV use on trails in the area is an “important activity for our community,” he said, adding that he was “quite surprised” to see a number of vehicles parked at a local restaurant over a recent weekend. “They are coming and that’s good.” “I’m very supportive of the work that they’ve done, it’s been excellent,” Deputymayor Andy Sharpe added. Sharpe says there are two things council should consider in its show of support at the county; one is the fact that the county’s bylaw is “restrictive as far as ATVs in town.” They’re only allowed

Radiation bunker gets huge assist from local Lions der construction at PRHC; that total was matched by the Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) which contributed a further $75,750 to the campaign. The PRHC Foundation’s Closer to Home campaign exceeded its original $2.5-million goal by nearly a million dollars which means the hospital will be able to add more equipment and expand its treatment
program; the Lions contribution will go towards anesthesiology equipment for cancer surgery. The Closer to Home campaign ended up raising $3,402,212. “The money the clubs gave comes from our communities and without the community support it wouldn’t have happened,” past district governor and current Zone 43 North Chair Earl Oliver told the

Northwest EMC. Oliver said some Lions Clubs in District A-12 close to Peterborough, like Lindsay and Omemee, also contributed. “We are certainly very appreciative of the support we get,” Oliver said noting that every time someone participates in a local Lions event they are supporting projects like the radiation treatment centre campaign. “There are still a lot of people who don’t know what Lions do,” he added. The Lions radiation initiative was championed by past district governor GorTHURSDAYdon Taylor of the Millbrook Lions who started the application process with the LCIF board in Chicago over two OCT. years ago, “It is a very detailed,” Oliver said of the application. SATURDAY SUNDAY“This money has to go to something very specific; it’s not good enough to say it OCT. OCT. goes to the construction of.” With that in mind the Lions earmarked their money to anesthetic equipment. “Because this was a very specific piece of equipment that was another reason why it got approved,” Oliver said. “It’s something that’s worked out very well.” “The $150,000 into that unit had to come from somewhere and that’s what Lions are all about.” “We’re very lucky in District A-3 because the LCIF is very generous when it comes to health-related equipment.”

Over the past two years the LCIF has supported District A-3 applications for ophthalmology equipment for hospitals in Kingston and Trenton. Having a single radiation facility at PRHC will reduce travel stress for local patients: prostate cancer patients on average require 40 radiation treatments; the average breast cancer patient needs 25 treatments. With a facility in Peterborough 400 patients (or 6,000 to 7,000 visits) each year of the 1,300 who travel will be treated locally—40 per cent of prostate cancer patients and 46 per cent of breast cancer patients.

Promise Land Fun Farm opens on Hamilton Road EMC News - Quinte West If you are looking for a fun place in the Quinte Region to take your children, then look no further than Promise Land Family Fun Farm at 640 Hamilton Road. They have 14 types of animals, including some petting zoo animals that can be petted and fed. This includes llamas, alpacas, donkeys, pygmy goats, Nubian goats, sheep, ducks, chicks, peacocks, rabbits, guinea pigs, ponies and turkeys. There is also a temporary playground set up, that will be expanded into a permanent playground in the spring of 2013. There are lots of other activities offered including puppet shows and a snack shop that serves hamburgers, hot dogs, chips, candy, drinks, popsicles, coffee and tea. Promise Land Family Fun Farm is owned and operated by Don and Cheryl Dowswell. “The farm has been in operation since 2006 when we moved here from Brampton with our two daughters,” says Cheryl. “Since then, we have become known throughout the Quinte region with our travelling petting zoo.” Promise Land Family Fun Farm has been a regular attraction of the Belleville Canada Day celebration at Zwicks Park and is fully registered with the Hastings and Prince Edward Counties Health Unit. The Fun Farm is located between Aikins Road and Wallbridge-Loyalist Road. “The Fun Farm is wheelchair accessible, but terrain may be muddy, or bumpy,” says Don Dowswell. “We would welcome the public’s feedback to assist us in making it as accessible as possible.” The Fun Farm is also open to bus and group tours, with special group rates available. “It is a nice addition to our community to have this attraction open up,” says Chamber
Manager Suzanne Andrews. “Quite often people stop by the Chamber looking for things to do with their children and this will be somewhere fun for them to go.” The grand opening event was on Saturday, October 6, with a ribbon cutting ceremony with Mayor John Williams. They will be open, weather permitting, from Thursday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and on Sundays from 1 until 5 p.m. Prices (taxes included): Children under 2 are free; Children 2-12: $4; Adults: $6 and seniors: $5. For more details contact Promise Land Family Fun Farm by phone at 613-2439533 or check out their web site at <www. plfarm.ca>. You can also find them on Facebook at <facebook.com/PromiseLandFarm> and on Twitter: @plfarm so there are lots of ways to keep in touch with everything that is going on and any special events.

Feasting a week away in San Francisco
“John’s Grill” appeared in the 1941 film The Maltese Falcon, and it has attracted many dignitaries/celebrities. By John M. Smith
EMC Lifestyles - I don’t usually dedicate an entire travel article to eating, but my wife and I found such a variety of dining experiences while in San Francisco that I’ve decided to share some of these with you. After all, the
food is one of the city’s major attractions, and you may be considering a visit to “The City by the Bay” in the near future. When we arrived at San Francisco’s airport and took a shuttle to the Tuscan Inn, located in Fisherman’s Wharf,
our first inclination was to stroll down to the pier and get some delectable seafood; after all, this area is still a working fishing pier, and fresh fish is readily available at many restaurants. That first major meal was at “The Franciscan Crab Restaurant,” located on Fisherman’s Wharf, at Pier 43, and it lived up to our expectations. It proved to be a great opportunity to enjoy some large, roasted Dungeness crab, soaked in crab butter sauce, and to sample a large skillet of hot, varied seafood. As the week went on, we tried some other restaurants in this same area, including “Fog Harbor Fish House,” which claims to be Fisherman’s Wharf’s first 100 per cent sustainable seafood restaurant, and that means that the seafood is “fished or farmed in ways that do not negatively affect fish population or the environment.” Specialties here included steamed or garlic-roasted Dungeness crab, seafood cioppino, and a shellfish platter. This restaurant is located on Pier 39, and a very short walk after our meal brought us to a plethora of sea lions cavorting on the docks. We didn’t, of course, always have seafood at Fisherman’s Wharf, so we had lunch one day at the nearby “De Lise Dessert Café,” on Bay Street, where we enjoyed made-to-order sandwiches, gourmet pastries,
“The Stinking Rose” even serves garlic ice cream!
and frozen desserts (made daily). We also took time to do some wine tasting, for our hotel offered a free wine reception and social hour daily in the lobby area from 5 until 6 p.m. We used the San Francisco transit system a great deal, including its famous cable cars and historic streetcars, for we wanted to experience these modes of transportation and, at the same time, see the city’s varied areas. This exploration led us to dining in other areas, too. For example, my wife just had to spend some time doing some “quality shopping” in the Union Square area where she found Macy’s, Bloomingdale’s, Saks Fifth Avenue,
Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, etc., so we had lunch one day at the “Urban Tavern.” This turned out to be a pleasant surprise, for it was located in a Hilton Hotel, and I expected it to be expensive. However, it offered a very reasonable luncheon trio of squash soup, a green salad, and half a sandwich for $10. We also had a dinner at the nearby “John’s Grill,” on Ellis Street, a restaurant that actually appeared in the 1941 film, The Maltese Falcon. In that movie, Humphrey Bogart, as Sam Spade, enters this establishment and orders “chops” and a baked potato and today’s menu includes “Sam Spade’s Lamb Chops” and a variety of fea-
tured steaks. I, of course, had to try one of these! This historic landmark has attracted many celebrities/dignitaries over the years, including Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Marlon Brando, Julia Child, Hillary Clinton, Alfred Hitchcock, Howard Stern, Johnny Depp, COACH & TOURS Renee Zellweger, and Derek Jeter. Another interesting area of the city that we visited was North Beach, the Italian district, and here we dined at “Original Joe’s,” where the waiters wore tuxedos, and the portions were very large—and tasty. It’s located very close to Club Fugazi, Dixie Mall and Square One - Saturday, November 3/12 where we attended a perforVaughan Mills - Saturday, November 10/12 mance of the city’s longest Royal Winter Fair - Saturday, November 10/12 running, and hilarious, muMemories of the Grand Ole Opry - Wed.

You can even decide to purchase some chopped garlic or garlic sauces to take home to liven up your own cooking! Since San Francisco is such an ethnically diversified city, we could have visited a great variety of ethnic restaurants, too, including “La Mediterranee” (Middle Eastern specialties), “Sushi Bistro” (Japanese), “Papalote” (Mexican), “Dosa” (Indian), “Osha Thai” (Thailand), and “Yank Sing” (Chinese). However, my wife and I spent only a week in San Francisco, so we certainly weren’t able to check out all the recommended restaurants. We did enjoy trying a few, though, and we’re certainly aware that there are many more awaiting us.

Reality Check: By Sheila Wray Gregoire
EMC Lifestyles - I have always been fascinated by nose rings. What happens when you have a cold and your nose starts to run? And what about tongue rings: wouldn’t piercing your tongue seriously hurt? Perhaps that’s the point: certain piercings prove you’re impervious to pain. People have always tried to distinguish themselves from the crowd by appearing tough. Some are incensed with society and its conformity, and so they want to do something totally different. They can call it conformity if they want, but I call it respect. Dressing appropriately shows respect for yourself, and respect for others. When you respect yourself, you dress like you want people to get to know you, not like you’re trying to scare them away. And when you respect others, you dress to encourage conversation. Don a costume, on the other hand, and you’re implicitly saying, “I’m going my own way.” They may say it’s about self-expression, but I often wonder if it’s about hiding. Wear a costume, and people talk about the costume and the image, rather than

taurant? Nobody, because these are businesses, and in business, it’s never a good idea to scare your customers away. Even government jobs will be closed to you; I’m sorry, but no kindergarten teacher can have skulls tattooed all over her arms. Part of what concerns me about this whole trend, though, is that the young people who dress to make themselves virtually unemployable also tend to come from less than ideal circumstances. While there are exceptions, in general, kids from stable middle class families don’t tend to do this. That makes me really sad, because I want to be a society which champions opportunity for all, not one that sticks some people in lower classes permanently. So here’s some tough love for you: if you’ve come from a rough background, you start out with several strikes
against you. But the vast majority of us want you to succeed; we do not want you to fail. We are not against you. But you’ve got to decide to help yourself. So respect yourself! Dress appropriately. It doesn’t have to be boring or conventional, but it should be appropriate. Don’t scare people with hardware or make-up, and don’t make people uncomfortable by wearing tight clothing or showing a ton of cleavage. And for pity’s sake, pull up your pants. You may hate society, but if that’s true, then why don’t you beat us at our own game? The best revenge is success. Why not set out to succeed and change the rules yourself? It’s your right to make your own statement. But I’d think twice before dressing in such a way as to scuttle all your options. You’re worth more than that. Please believe it, and dress accordingly.
proper and this quiet spot is a dwarf apple tree, a Belgian lilac shrub and sloping ground
around the perimeter. We like it and that is the ultimate bellwether.

stone patio tucked up in the back corner of an ell. It can be moved, it can be turned into a wall, or it can be sold to a neighbour. The point is that you should start with a blank slate. One way to do this is to pretend this is someone else’s property and you get the opportunity to play landscape architect. Do you remember the starting point of the design process? Interview yourself, you should be able to understand the vision of your client much more readily than Jason does with his customers. After that, have fun. You might pencil in a hot tub and deck with stainless steel barbeque and dry bar when in reality your budget allows for a blowup wading pool and a TV tray with a plastic jug of Freshie. Don’t let inconsequentialities like money slow you down. The water feature with a flame that Jason slipped into his design might morph into a hibachi with a plastic spritzer bottle, on a matching TV tray, of course, but the thought is there. In our backyard, we have a small patio made with repurposed coloured concrete flagstone from the 1960s with a garage sale wrought iron bistro set and a salvaged acorn style wood burner.

about what’s underneath. And what is it that the nose rings, and the eyebrow rings, and the death-dyed hair say? They announce, “I’m tough. I don’t care what you think. I want to scare you a little.” Then, when people don’t accept you, you have a readymade excuse: the rest of us are uptight and judgmental. You can continue to reject “the culture” and opt out, because we’ve rejected you first. But let’s fast forward a few years and see how that plays out. It’s one thing to deliberately dress like an anti-social idealist when one is young. Eventually, though, you’re going to need money to pay for an apartment, and food, and just life. And you can’t get a job looking scary. Who in their right mind is going to hire someone who looks Goth to be a receptionist? Or a sales clerk in any shop that caters to those over twenty? Or a server in a res-
shrubbery and grasses as our physical abilities diminish but the use of the grounds won’t change. Although that green open space for kicking soccer balls with your children might be needed again when the grandkids are romping about. You’ve heard the phrase “bones of the garden” and we most often think of foundation plantings. Actually, the bones are often architectural constructs—when we have the wherewithal to construct stuff. Perhaps we have a hedge that separates a patio from a play area and is accessed by a passageway. Whether or not the barrier is a living hedge, a dry stone wall or a fence, it is both architecture and bones. The passage between the spaces could be a trimmed out as part of the hedge, that’s gardening; it could be a garden centre purchased wooden-slatted affair, that’s simple design or it could be a pergola constructed with repurposed hand-hewn beams from a barn, that’s both architecture and artistry. So how do we apply this idea of architecture at our own homes? Draw a simple plan of your lot. The only constants are the property line and the house. Everything else needs to be on the block for discussion. You might have a field-
EMC Lifestyles - I have just finished reading the latest edition of The County & Quinte Living magazine. One of the articles featured a residential garden designed by my friend Jason Partridge. When Jason isn’t spending his days lounging around the offices of Scott Wentworth Landscape Group, sipping tea and munching on crumpets (with three fruit marmalade) he is out on the job designing and creating outdoor living spaces. Jason is very, very good at this. If you read the article you’ll discover he has won professional awards for his work but that’s not the true measure of a craftsman. Professionals must satisfy their clients; that is their purpose. This is the difference between an artist and a professional, not that there can’t be a serendipitous marriage between the two. An artist creates something the customer wishes to purchase after seeing it. The professional uses their creative talents to create something the customer wishes before the physical work begins. When the two come together in a seamless fusion, both customer and designer are satisfied, and we get to vicariously stroll those grounds on glossy magazine pages.
However, you and I, Gentle Reader, can take home some lessons from this little article. Pay attention to the dialogue from Jason and the customer. The focus on gardens and the plants was not the starting point for this project. That’s difficult for me to acknowledge because I’m all about the plants. The starting point begins with the question, “What do you want to do here?” It is that simple. “When you come into this space, what do you want to do?” The answers, of course, are where the planning directions originate. Sit and look into the distance? Meditate? Entertain guests? Actively garden? It should be a given that whatever is put into place will look gorgeous but that isn’t enough. If you only want gorgeous, buy a painting and stick it up on a fence. Once the activity has been worked out, the next step is to determine how to delineate and separate those spaces. When we stroll the grounds of our own estates, these are the questions we need to ask ourselves. What do I want to do here? After awhile, and I’m talking aging here, the true worth of the architecture will prove itself. We might change out our flower beds from annuals to perennials to

This play is funny
EMC Entertainment - The Belleville Theatre Guild’s 61st season opens on October 11 with The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde.
When director Dave Henderson was asked why he chose this script, he said, “I reread the play at the time we were looking to remount

shows for the 60th season, and was reminded how much I liked it. I remember seeing it at Stratford a number of years ago and laughing so hard at some of the lines that my niece, who was sitting beside me, had to shush me.” The play is Wilde’s most famous and most successful. It is extremely witty, with many of the lines containing subtle, or not-so-subtle, double meanings. The plot is outrageously implausible, but you can’t help but enjoy the way the characters spin it out with their cutting and insightful comments on romance, marriage, society and manners. Henderson has chosen Judy Bridle to work beside him as his stage manager and Debra Tosh to be his producer. Auditions were held in June and the cast is fantastic. It includes Timothy Fransky, Mike Leeming, Sonya Zaback, Bill Petch, Jamie KristalLott, Steve Forrester, Moira Nikander-Forrester, Mike Wilcox and Dr. Ian Feltham. Henderson said, “I also don’t mind going for shameless humour and publicity by putting a man in a dress, with Bill Petch in the classic role of Lady Bracknell.” Petch is performing beautifully in his first female role. It is hilarious to watch him.

In non-speaking roles are Nancy Garrod, Jon Lattone and Jodie Trahan-Guay. Watch for them as they deliver fine and intriguing performances as they change the set and props. Oscar Wilde is a fascinating individual. He depended on society for his fame, but was not shy about pointing out its vanities and hypocrisies because they were his own. Earnest was his greatest success, and yet it proved to be the catalyst for his downfall.
This seemingly frivolous play, which is subtitled A Trivial Comedy for Serious People, has a much darker side. Its critique of Victorian society—though delivered in a velvet glove—is every inch a clunking, iron fist.

Wrought Iron Roots gets fantasy gig By Richard Turtle
EMC Entertainment Stirling - Cyberspace and Hockeyville have been good to Wrought Iron Roots. But having a bit of musical talent and the chemistry to draw a crowd helps too. Fiddle player Lyndzi Couch admits a lot has happened since the five musicians hooked up over the Internet earlier this year but the latest opportunity tops any expectations. The bluegrass/country/ folk rock band, featuring Trenton musicians Travis and Brandon Whaley, Richard Ellis and Bruce Forsythe along with Couch, played its first gig at a March Hockeyville event and were recently announced as the opening act for Michelle Wright at her Trudeau Park show on No-
vember 9. After making a submission, which included youtube video, to concert organizers, Couch says, they were told they would be one of the opening acts for the upcoming November Movember Country Concert Series which also includes Chad Brownlee and Dallas Smith November 10 and Corb Lund November 24. “Out of all of them we wanted to open for Michelle,” Couch adds, saying the news still came as a huge surprise to the recently formed band. “They’re all Trenton boys,” she says. “I’m the Stirling girl.” And despite their proximity to each other and otherwise unknown connections, they came together as a result of Kijiji and the worldwide web. “Really we were all

looking to start a band,” she says and in many cases were aware of each other’s work. And after an initial February meeting, Wrought Iron Roots went on to play their first gig a month later. And last weekend they took the stage in front of more than 1,000 people outside the Stirling arena during Kraft Hockeyville celebrations. “We’ve actually been really busy all summer,” Couch says. “We’ve done about 20 shows (together), so it’s been good.” And then came the news of the November date at Trudeau Park. It’s been a bit of a whirlwind, she admits, but opening for country music star Michelle Wright will undoubtedly be a highlight. The band plays a mix of country, bluegrass and folk covers including hits by artists ranging from CCR to the Barenaked Ladies.

Those reasons are the number of barbershoppers and their families from across Ontario and beyond expected to attend the annual fall convention of the Ontario District of the International Barbershop Harmony Society. More than just a weekend of singing four-part barbershop harmony a cappella (no accompaniment), it is a weekend of serious competition for
Barbershoppers big on Belleville provincial honours in various levels for some 22 quartets and eight choruses, vying to go on to more senior competitions under the watchful eyes and ears of a panel of judges from across North America. These will embrace quartets from seasoned, professional level to teenage youth to hopeful newcomers. The Quinte branch of the society, now officially called A Cappella Quinte, (formerly The Trentones) is co-host for the convention along with Oshawa. This marks the second consecutive year this event has been held in Belleville, and,
for society members, it is the start of a year of celebrations for the society’s 75th anniversary since it was founded in Tulsa, Oklahoma, in 1938. For Ontario barbershoppers especially, the highlight of the next year will be the annual international convention and competitions, held in Toronto, the first time in some years. The event is actually a doubly significant anniversary, not only the society’s 75th, but
the 50th anniversary of the last time the convention was held in Toronto in 1963. Convention headquarters will again be Belleville’s Maranatha Church on College Street West, while the Fairfield Inn and Suites on North Front Street will be the main hospitality host. Residents and visitors should not be surprised to hear snippets of harmony on street corners, in bars, in hotel
corridors and certainly in and around Maranatha Church. The first major event is Friday, at 6:30 p.m. when all 22 quartets compete, with the top ten going on to the final trials Saturday evening. Saturday, starting at noon hour, the eight choruses will battle for the right to represent Ontario District in Toronto in 2013. Saturday at 7 p.m. starts
the finals contest for the quartets followed by a “parade of champions” of both winning quartets and choruses. All three sessions are open to the public, with some limitations on seating, through “single event registrations” at $30 each, or a full convention registration of $60, available at the registration desk in Maranatha Church.
he adds. “Many of these children have special needs, which may include medically fragile infants, children or youth with emotional, physical, social or educational challenges.” In 2011 and 2012, 32 children and youth from Hastings and Northumberland counties and two additional children who were in the care of other societies were adopted by families in our communities. “In recognition of adoptive families in both Hastings and Northumberland counties we extend an invitation to the entire community to actively participate in thanking everyone that has created a caring and nurturing home through adoption,” he concluded.
Time for Awareness
EMC News - Quinte West The city has declared November as Adoption Awareness Month, after a request received from Mark Kartusch, executive director of Highland Shores Children’s Aid. “Every child deserves to be loved, nurtured and have a permanent family,” Kartusch writes. “Sadly, abused and neglected children in the care of Highland Shores Children’s Aid are waiting for such a home.” There are 11 children in Hastings and Northumberland Counties who are not yet matched with an adoptive family. “Our continued need is for families who will adopt older children and sibling groups,”

There is no cost to attend one of these seminars. “Businesses are encouraged to find at least one seminar during the week they can fit into their already busy schedules,” says Mike McLeod, Manager at the Prince Edward County Chamber. “These seminars are a great way to pick up new ideas and best practices to bring back to your own company.” Tuesday, October 16, there is going to be a Mega Mixer at The Grange of Prince Edward Estate Winery sponsored by TD Bank. There will be free buses leaving at 4:30 p.m. from the Chambers of Commerce in Belleville, Quinte West and Brighton to take attendees to the winery where they will be able to enjoy light refreshments, wine tasting, live music and door prizes. “This will be an excellent opportunity for business people across the Quinte Region to network and exchange ideas,” says Bill Saunders, manager at the Belleville Chamber of Commerce. Also, the Quinte Business Achievement Awards Gala is during this week on October 18 at Highline Hall in Wellington, Prince Edward County. This year there were over 80 businesses from throughout the region that completed the nomination process and everyone is invited to join in as we celebrate business excel-
lence in the Quinte Region. Tickets are still on sale and can be purchased through the web site at <www.qbaa.ca/tickets. php> or by calling your local Chamber of Commerce. Small Business Week wraps up with a luncheon on Friday, October 19, at the Ramada Hotel, Trenton. The guest speaker is Allan O’Dette, the new president of the Ontario Chamber of Commerce who will be presenting ideas on how to transform Ontario back to its former prosperity. Emerging Stronger is a transformative agenda for Ontario and the Chambers would like to invite everyone to join us in welcoming Allan to the Quinte Region. This event starts at noon and the cost to attend is $25 which includes a full served three-course luncheon and door prizes. All Small Business Week events need to be reserved in advance through your local Chamber of Commerce or by calling 1-800-930-3255. Many local companies and organizations have come together with the local Chambers to make Small Business Week Quinte a success.

ANDREWS, John Wayne Feb. 7, 1943-Oct. 5, 2011. In Loving Memory of our dearest Dad, Husband and Poppa. God looked around His Palace and found an empty place, He then looked down upon the earth and saw your tired face. He put His arms around you and lifted you to rest, His Palace must be beautiful He always takes the best. He knew that you were suffering, He knew you were in pain, And knew that you would never get well on earth again. He saw your path was difficult He closed your tired eyes He whispered to you “Come with Me” and gave you wings to fly. You’ve left us precious memories and love will be our guide, You live on through your family, you’re always by our side. It broke our hearts to lose you but you did not go alone, For part of us went with you the day God called you Home. Always loved, deeply missed and never forgotten By your Wife, Children, Grandchildren and Fosterchildren Love you to the Moon and back Pops!! xoxo

before his parents would let him go off to fair. â€œYou live for it,â€? he says of the Norwood Fair. Baker likes what he sees when he surveys the 21st century Norwood Fair, pleased that the tractor show is a big part of the Monday afternoon program sharing the competitive stage, so to speak, with the light and
heavy horse pull across the track. â€œTheyâ€™ve done a good job with changes; it makes it more entertaining for people,â€? he said. â€œEvery year is a little different and they add to it.â€? Tractor buffs, he says, get a chance to show off their machines. â€œThere are different op-

EMC Events - Norwood It was a banner weekend for Allan Baker. The nattily dressed 88-year-old shared the limelight with Norwood Fair Ambassador Ashley Buck and a bevy of stage guests as he officially opened the 144th edition of the Norwood Thanksgiving Weekend Fair then took up a familiar spot during the big antique tractor show and pull. An iconic figure in local tractor circles the dapper former farm and equipment supply businessman was both surprised and honoured to open the fair. â€œIt was nice to be part of it,â€? Baker told the Northwest EMC. â€œI grew up with this fair.â€? â€œI was quite surprised to even be asked,â€? he said. â€œI never thought theyâ€™d ask me. I didnâ€™t think it would happen but it did. I was glad to be able to do it. I enjoyed the opportunity to do that job, I wish I could have had said more.â€? Baker recalls a time during the late 1920s when he had to pick potatoes at his familyâ€™s farm, filling 28 bags
portunities to do what they can do because of the way theyâ€™re put together.â€? Asked what else he enjoys besides the array of antique tractors, Baker says with a nice laugh â€œat my age it doesnâ€™t matter what I watch, I run out of power.â€?

EMC Events - Trenton The annual Boofest for Hallowe’en will be held at the amphitheatre in Centennial Park this year, Oc-
other volunteers will be helping out on this haunted night. Grimmon told the Corporate and Financial Services committee that the budget for the event is $4,000 which is operated as a total cost recovery.
“Last year it was at the arena but it was a problem going up and down the stairs, with their costumes dragging.” She noted that this year’s Remembrance Memorial Service will not be held at Tucker’s Corners. It is normally held the Sunday prior to November 11, but last year was held at Westminster United Church, with the wreaths laid afterwards at the memorial stone at Tucker’s Corners. This year the church will be hosting its service on the 11th as it falls on a Sunday. Grimmon was asked about the Trenton Scottish Irish Festival and said it was cancelled because of

The loss will be covered by the festival’s reserve fund of $17,425 which was set up in 2010 to support the 25th anniversary scheduled for 2015. Terry Cassidy asked if there was anything they learned from the events that are so weather sensitive. Grimmon said they had considered moving it inside the arena before when the weather was not good on the 16th anniversary but “that didn’t translate well” so the committee had decided to hold the event rain or shine, using just a tent. Unfortunately, the weather was too extreme. Doors Open Quinte West held in partnership with the Trent Port Historical Society on September 15 went well with 20 sites featured in the city, reporting a total of 2,633 visitors. Comments received were very supportive. The only site that closed early because of low attendance was the Sports Wall of Fame at the YMCA. Event cost for the city was $1,695 for registration in the program through the annual tourism budget.
