Food bank in need of community support By Richard Turtle

EMC News - Stirling - Volunteers at the local food bank have seen a steady increase in traffic in recent months and while a $10,000 Kraft Hockeyville contribution has eased the burden, community donations have virtually dried up since the spring. And with fewer donations of non-perishable products arriving, says Community Cupboard Chair Heather Bailey, the food bank has been forced to spend thousands on groceries to ensure the needs of those on its client list are met. “We noticed it as soon as it was announced that we’d won Hockeyville and the food bank would be getting $10,000,” Bailey says of the understandable dip in donations, adding the community perception was that the food bank was sud-

denly in very good shape. But with about 50 families regularly using the service, monthly food expenses can top $1,500, Bailey says. And by the time the Community Cupboard received the Kraft donation recently, more than half the money had already been spent. “We’re extremely grateful to Kraft,” Bailey says of the cash donation as well as the many food drives during related community events, but adds the recent windfall does not make up for the community support and contributions seen in the past, particularly with the Christmas season on the way. And there will be opportunities to donate to the food bank, including through local organizations and events such as the Santa Claus Parade, and Bailey is urging residents to remember the charitable

EMC News - Madoc Twenty residents of the Madoc region have established a chapter of the Lions Club, the largest non-governmental organization in the world. Charter recognition ceremonies drew Lions from Kingston, Colborne, Bancroft, East Peterborough, Wellington, Newcastle and numerous points between. They assembled Saturday evening at Eldorado Hall just north of the Village of Madoc. Keynote speaker, past international director Terry Graham, gave some examples of how Lions Clubs International (LCI) functions throughout the world. He said, “We are the only service group allowed into China. We planted fifteen million trees around the world last year, and contributed seven million for tsunami relief. Back in the ice storm of 1997 we contributed ten thousand dollars in emergency funds.” Just last year LCI partnered with the Gates Foundation to eradicate measles around the world.

Highway 7 rollover FEATURE OF THE WEEK Visit for a great buy on Skin Rejuvenation treatment with SharpLight IPL.

EMC News - Aftab Ahmad, the driver of a fully loaded Midland transport, is lucky to be alive having escaped unscathed from an early morning rollover on Highway #7 between Marmora and Madoc on October 25. Ahmad said he was driving about 75 or 80 kilometres per hour while en route from Brampton to Ottawa when he spotted what looked like a coyote on the highway. He attempted to avoid it, but the wheels hit the gravel, the truck took out an expanse of guardrail then flipped into the ditch. Ahmad, who found himself hanging upside down suspended by his seat belt, was able to climb out of the shattered cab. The contents were soon transferred to another vehicle and on their way, but the next morning, the trailer remained at the side of the road waiting to be loaded onto a flatbed. Photo: Judy Backus

raising Fish Fry. Lion Glenn Payne says the dinner was a huge success and a perfect start to the weekend activities. Also performing at the hall on Friday was a large contingent from the Stirling Citizens Band, who also received a $1,500 contribution from the local service club. The band took centre stage after Cole wrapped up his show, providing a sampling of the band’s repertoire under the guidance of Conductor Donna BennettSporring. Familiar to many in the area, The Stirling Citizens Band is made up of about 50 musicians, says member Tim Whiteman, and attracts all ages of musicians including several with multiple talents. But with such large numbers, he says, it is often difficult to schedule performances when all the players are available. The group practises together regularly, performing at various special events including parades and community functions throughout the year. The Lions financial contribution will go toward day-to-day operating costs for the volunteer organization, Whiteman says, which includes expenses such as insurance required to operate as a travelling band as well as equipment and other costs. Fostering a love of music and performance, Lions President Elmore Baitley says the local branch wanted to acknowledge the group for its community contribution. As well, he says, a performance by its members seemed a fitting addition to the weekend festivities. The Citizens Band encourages new members of all skill levels. And with Scarecrow Weekend past, Lions are now preparing for this weekend’s Arts and Crafts Sale, featuring the work of dozens of local artists and artisans available at the Lions Hall.

organization and the help it has provided locally over the years. She notes many of those who visit the food bank are facing temporary financial hardships, but some have been clients for many of the 20 years the Community Cupboard has been in operation in Stirling. “The volunteers here are very understanding,” Bailey says, doing what they can to ease clients’ anxieties as well as filling some of their grocery needs. And the food bank’s location at the end of Station Street provides an ideal outlet, she adds, where both easy access and a level of privacy are offered. And many past users of the food bank, she says, have been among those to make regular contributions. Since its beginnings in the municipally owned Stirling theatre prior to its reopening, the food bank has been in operation here for two decades. However, recent increases of “three or four families a month,” Bailey says, have added to the food bank’s grocery bill. “We just want people to be aware,” she adds, noting the $10,000 donation is not expected to last until spring. “We’d love to get these shelves filled up,” she says.

EMC Lifestyles - Marmora - The first in this year’s series of ladies’ ecumenical meetings took place at Marmora Pentecostal Church on October 29 when women from the five local churches gathered for fellowship, entertainment and a light lunch. Tables decorated with autumnal centrepieces filled the hall with colour as the group, with piano accompaniment provided by Jennie Killian, blended their voices in a selection of inspirational songs. The mother and daughter duo of Sherry Forbes and five-year-old Ruby Mae continued the theme, providing additional music which was followed by thoughtful messages presented by Darlene Ellis. The pre-lunch portion of the meeting ended with humour when a costumed and bespectacled Jeannie Hewitt made a grand entrance, showering the speaker with colourful autumn leaves and presenting a few minutes of hilarity for all to enjoy. The women of the host

church provided a light lunch of sandwiches and sweets with plenty of time for a good visit built into the occasion. The next gathering, which will feature a Christ-

mas theme, is scheduled for November 26 at Caressant Care with members of each church being asked to provide five to ten minutes of entertainment along with an assortment of cookies.

Letters to the editor

U.S. President Obama caters to the rich

Heather Abrams Owner / Operator


613.478-1114 596 Moira Street Tweed, On K0K 3J0 Hwy 37 N. (across from Tim Horton’s)

Dear Editor, In response to Mr. Ethier October 18. The U.S. president goes about his daily business trailed by a military attaché with a brief case called the football. In the football are the means to destroy most life on this planet. We assume the president would press the button if he felt the situation sufficiently severe, otherwise why keep the nuclear mission ready. Does anyone else on this planet actually feel this scenario is even thinkable? Other things, which occupy the president, are the “kill lists.” These are perceived enemies of the USA who have been suspected of being anti-American, but are not readily accessed for solitary in Guantanamo, so they are to be killed by remote controlled drones along with family and friends who may be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Those who try

to dig in the rubble to help the wounded will be hit with a second missile. Imagine for a moment living with killer drones flying overhead every day and wondering when your time may come. Imagine how this affects the women and children. The USA outspends almost all western countries put together on military might. Its approximately 1,000 military bases around the globe, some of which are there against the wishes of the host country, are a huge drain on the taxpayer. Some of this money spent on health care and education for instance, could vastly improve lives at home, but then private healthcare is a right. The right to choose your doctor is of course only available to those with sufficient cash, the rest do not count. Fifty per cent of all U.S. personal bankruptcies are the result of medical bills. The child mortality rate puts the USA at the top of the list, that is if you consider more as better.

Spending is also a factor in the political system, where every four years the public is allowed to change from Tweedle Dee to Tweedle Dum if the spirit moves them. This gives them the illusion of democracy. Since the approximately 2.5 billion or more dollars spent on the current presidential campaign is supplied mostly by corporate America to both parties, it really makes little difference who ends up in power. Big pharma, big oil, Wall Street, the armaments manufacturers, agribusiness, the Israeli lobby, the Pentagon and others will decide what and where the American people are going, at least until the money finally runs out. Mr. Ethier claims that Obama is transferring wealth to the masses, when the opposite is true. All those tax breaks went to the top one per cent most actually went to the top .01 per cent or those you run to for election campaign contributions.

America is certainly top of the heap when you count those in prison. The “land of the free” imprisons more of its people by far than any other country, including China and Russia. It also surpasses the rest by a wide margin with the numbers in solitary confinement. The UN claims that more than 15 days in the hole is “torture or cruel and inhuman punishment.” California alone has 11,730 prisoners doing solitary. Eighty have been there for 20 years. One has spent 42 years in the hole. A vast chunk of the U.S. prison population are there for nonviolent drug related offences. Added revenues for the California private prison system “thanks” to those prisoners moved to solitary amounts to $144 million. More in, more often, the better the corporations like it.

has doubled hydro rates and made Ontario the most costly energy jurisdiction in North America. If you’re a scam artist and con people out of their hardearned funds, you are likely to be arrested and charged. In politics, you generally get away with such indiscretions and McGuinty is definitely a strong example. What it amounts to is that the McGuinty government has pilfered billions of taxpayer dollars on a series of boondoggles and gets applauded by his own caucus.

In private business, if he misappropriated public funds, he would be serving a long prison sentence. But, in politics, his efforts are regarded as “just brilliant strategy.” Thank Mr. McGuinty for nine years of scandal, corruption, lies and plundering of the provincial treasury, just as you would expect from any dedicated socialist. But I’m sure his chief apologist, Warren Kinsella, will be able to whitewash his efforts as just “good old dirty politics.” Rolly Ethier, Campbellford

Dear Editor, A lot of people, like myself, agree with a pundit who recently commented that Premier Dalton McGuinty should be brought up on charges. He has been misappropriating public funds, including green energy fraud, for so long that it has become outrageous. This is the legacy McGuinty will take with him into retirement because too many taxpayers trusted him to do the right thing. Instead, most of us have been robbed blind by his green energy frenzy that

Dear Editor, It seems one of your readers from Campbellford believes Obama and the Democrats will take the United States right down the road to Communism. Then we have others who claim that Obama is a Muslim and will turn the United States into an Islamic nation. So who’s right? Perhaps it will be an Islamic/Communist nation. But wait! That won’t work either. For those of us

who can recall the Cold War years, we still remember that the Eastern European States, along with Russia, were referred to as “the godless Communists.” Muslims are very religious, so they would be incompatible with Communism. Now enter the ultra-right Tea Party with its fears of a Communist state because of the United Nations Agenda 21. The Tea Party claims that this UN Agenda 21 is the

path that the United States will take to Socialism. And who signed that agreement on behalf of the U.S.? None other than George H. W. Bush, or about as far to the Conservative right as possible. It was Canada’s number one, right wing Tory, Brian Mulroney, who signed for Canada. Looks to me that it’s the right wing politicos who want us to go down the socialist path. Bob Johnson, Stirling

EMC Editorial - Six years in jail and an average fine of over a million dollars: that was the punishment given to six Italian scientists on October 22 for getting their earthquake advice wrong. So what will the expert geologists and Gwynne Dyer vulcanologists in Italy say the next time they are asked about the likelihood of an earthquake? They will refuse to say anything, of course. More than 5,000 scientists have signed a letter supporting their colleagues who found themselves standing trial for manslaughter in the medieval city of L’Aquila, where 309 people died in an earthquake in 2009. But the case is a bit more complex than it first appears. People always look for a scapegoat when disaster strikes, and it’s understandable that the bereaved people of L’Aquila wanted someone to blame. Most of them were glad when the six Italian scientists were convicted: at least somebody was being punished for the crime. But it wasn’t exactly the crime that those 5,000 foreign scientists thought they had been accused of. Even lawyers and judges know that you cannot predict an earthquake with any certainty. What the six were actually accused of was being too reassuring about how likely an earthquake was. There were hundreds of small shocks around L’Aquila in the weeks before the big one struck, and the six scientists were sent to the city to assess the level of danger. They judged the risk as minor, and one, foolishly, said there was “no danger”. On the basis of this scientific advice, it is claimed, thousands of citizens decided to sleep in their houses rather than outside— and 309 of them were crushed in their houses a week later when the magnitude 6.3 quake brought them down. So the scientists’ crime was not a failure to predict the quake, but a failure to state clearly that it COULD happen. It’s still a stupid charge. Half of the really big earthquakes are preceded by a flurry of smaller shocks, true; but such clusters of small shocks are quite common, and only five per cent of them are followed by a major quake. So the scientists were caught on the horns of a familiar dilemma. Fail to issue a warning before a big quake, and you will be discredited (and maybe, if you are Italian, charged with manslaughter). But issue warnings every time there is a five per cent risk, and you will cause 19 needless mass evacuations for every neces-

sary one. You will be “crying wolf,” which is usually counterproductive. The scientists’ conviction will probably be reversed on appeal, bringing this whole foolish episode to an end. For the rest of us, however, this just illustrates how hard it is for human beings to deal sensibly with big but incalculable risks. The biggest incalculable risk of a purely natural order that we know about is the mega-tsunami that will be unleashed when the western flank of Cumbre Vieja volcano on the island of La Palma in the Canaries slides into the Atlantic Ocean. In an eruption in 1949, a chunk of rock about 500 cubic kilometres (120 cubic miles) in size, with a mass of 150 billion tons, became detached from the main ridge and slid two metres (seven feet) down toward the sea. This is bad news for people living around the Atlantic Ocean. In some future volcanic eruption (there have been six in the past 500 years), that whole mass may slide all the way into the ocean and generate a tsunami that would initially be about 600 metres (2,000 feet) high. It would travel outwards in an expanding circle at some 1,000 kilometres an hour (600 miles per hour), destroying everything on the western coast of Africa in one hour. It would inundate England’s south coast in three, and reach the east coast of the United States, Canada and Cuba in six. Brazilians would have to wait a little longer. The waves would reach up to 20 kilometres (13 miles) inland in low-lying areas. Many tens of millions would die. So let’s imagine that there’s another eruption on Cumbre Vieja, and a committee of global experts is convened to watch the western flank for signs of movement. Should they advise evacuation along all the vulnerable coasts? That’s several hundred million people. Who will give those people food and shelter? How long must they stay inland? And the economic damage would be huge. The experts can’t wait until the last minute to give their advice: you can’t evacuate the entire U.S. east coast in six hours. If they advise evacuation, and nothing bad happens, they will be the most unpopular people on the planet. If they don’t, and the worst does happen, they will be seen as guilty of mass manslaughter, just like the Italian scientists at L’Aquila. Since it will always be much likelier that no catastrophe is going to happen this time, the experts will almost certainly issue reassuring statements intended to keep people in their homes. Just like the Italian scientists. And yet some day, next week or a thousand years from now, that mass of rock on Cumbre Vieja will really fall into the sea. Damned if you do, and damned if you don’t.

One small step from fascism

Dear Editor, In Rolly Ethier’s October 18 letter, he equates any concern for the well being of fellow humans as socialism and goes on to say, “Socialism is one small step away from communism, a disease that has murdered millions around the world.” By the same token, I could say that neo-conservative politics are one small step away from fascism, a disease that has murdered tens of millions around the world. Mr. Ethier also makes the nonsensical claim that, “President Barack Obama is definitely aiming to transform the U.S. into a communist society” and “If he is re-elected it is a done deal.” If that is indeed Obama’s plan why hasn’t he already done so? After all, he’s already been in power for four years. Mr. Ethier then goes on to claim that Russia is still a communist country. No it isn’t, and hasn’t been for years. It’s now a nation that has fully embraced capitalism … unfortunately though, only its worst aspects. The former communist nation now veers closer to being a right-wing fascist state! Get

your facts up-to-date, Mr. Ethier. He also states that in European countries, “… millions are struggling to exist under a small, elite group of communist rich who really don’t care about the masses. Just like the United Nations.” Surely he meant to say “fascist rich” and “Just like the United States.” Rolly Ethier claims that, “… the U.S. developed into the greatest, most prosperous and most generous country in the world under free enterprise capitalism.” It’s not so anymore. The American economy has been seriously weakened by right wing politics. At the beginning of the Bush era the U.S.A. did NOT have a huge debt. However, eight years of right wing rule resulted in two, undeclared, illegal and never-ending wars. Those, still ongoing, conflicts have drained America’s coffers requiring the accumulation of a huge debt … owed to China, a nation made wealthy by trade with the U.S. and ruled by a Communist government. Does Mr. Ethier have no sense of irony? Also, it was Mr. Ethier’s vaunted “unfettered, free enterprise capitalism” that brought about the current world-wide economic crisis, was it not? As to U.S. “generosity,” I take it this refers to the billions of dollars of foreign aid that the U.S.A has given to poor nations over the years. Using tax dollars to redistribute wealth. By Mr. Ethier’s standards, that’s socialism. So a country that owes its rise to unfettered, free enterprise capitalism practises international Marxist-socialism. Huh? Do neo-cons ever think before they speak? Roy Condy, Norwood

So, was the name Sunny already taken? By Terry Bush EMC Editorial - Okay, that’s just me being a smart ass. The names of tropical storms, hurricanes etc. are decided each year long before the storms actually form but still, for something as powerful and destructive as a hurricane, Sandy doesn’t quite do it justice. Sounds more like someone you might like to date. Over the years, many of us have had the pleasure of hitching a ride in Cougars, Mustangs, Meteors, Barracudas, Chargers, you know, wild and tough sounding vehicles. If you were thinking of buying a car that would blow the doors off your rivals, would you consider buying a Nissan Sandy or a Toyota Leslie? Chances are you might consider something that sounds a little grittier with a name that invokes raw power, destruction and carnage like a Nissan Ninja or a Toyota T-Rex; monikers that would up the testosterone levels. As I hear the wind howling outside on Monday evening, I’m not sure if I should be worried that a tree might come crashing down on our house or if Sandy might drop a grain of sand in my eye should I be reckless enough to stick my head out the window. If Hurricane Strangler was blowing the bejeezus out of my shingles right now, I might cringe a little but Sandy? I’m sure there must be a Sandy out there somewhere making some guy’s life miserable but I can’t say I’ve ever met anyone with that name who was anything less than very nice. The storm season will be over in another month but that still leaves a little death and destruction yet to come from Tony, who’s already started brewing and Valerie and William waiting in the wings. Don’t Valerie and Will sound more like the fun-loving neighbours next door? Not to make light of a bad situation but considering bad weather always seems to destroy the lives of the poorest among us, it’s nice to see that at least the powers that be have started to use names that reflect the people being affected. Ernesto, Alberto and Rafael have already passed through paying homage to many of those affected throughout the Caribbean and the state of Florida. If we had a Hurricane Brandene followed by Hurricane Cletus, the list would be complete. Being flippant seems to have earned me the wrath of Sandy, who has just now knocked out my Internet. So much for doing any more research to finish this piece. The weather this week is fairly typical for this time of year considering Hallowe’en usually isn’t the nicest evening in our little part of Ontario. How many of you remember eagerly anticipating the yearly festival of trick or treating, unable to sleep the night before because you had the coolest costume the world had ever seen. You couldn’t wait to show it off, only to find once again that despite a couple of days of short-sleeve friendly weather, Hallowe’en had played an ugly trick on you; another damp and cold night with your mother waiting by the door coat in hand. And how many of you nodded your heads up and down and agreed with your mom that no, you most certainly wouldn’t want to catch a cold by venturing out into a damp and dreary night to reap as much sugar as was humanly possible for a nine-year-old to carry. I’m sure I’m not the only one who ditched my coat in the back seat of the family car while venturing out to show off my brilliant costume soon to realize that mom was right as usual and I was freezing my butt off. But that was then and this is now. We didn’t get many trick or treaters at our old place maybe a dozen if we were really lucky and all the cousins, nephews and nieces showed up. We’ll get even fewer where we are now but I can’t complain. The stalwart wife will have little chocolate bars waiting by the door just in case… just in case her husband feels like feeding his face for the rest of the week that is. That’s how it’s been for the past 25 years or so and I can’t see it ever changing. I may spice things up a little bit this year by actually knocking on the door to let her hand out the goodies that always end up in my stomach. Hurricane Sandy will have petered out by then and it will be time for another storm to take its place with a name starting with the letter T. Tony, unless we’re talking Soprano isn’t really that scary sounding for a hurricane so maybe I’ll greet her as Hurricane Terry-ble. I can be pretty scary at times, much more so than anyone named Sandy. In fact, I once literally scared the crap out of our dog just by yelling at him after finding another wet spot on the leg of a pair of pants hanging on a chair. I wasn’t scary Terry enough that he didn’t do it again but still, it was a proud moment however fleeting, as fleeting as our memories of this storm will be considering what’s headed our way in December.

17 Ranney St. S., Campbellford Minister: Rev. Blaine Dunnett

Dear Editor, I am writing to express my concern over the new trade deal Stephen Harper has worked out with China. In one week Harper could commit Canada to the most sweeping trade deal in a generation without a single debate or vote. Many Canadians are eager to develop our resources for sale to other countries knowing it will bring jobs and tax revenue to our country. Of course the biggest of these resources at the moment is the tar sands of Alberta. If the Canada-China FIPA passes, it will pave the way for China’s massive companies to spend billions buying out Canada’s natural resource companies. Some may welcome this investment but may not realize that under FIPA, China’s companies can sue Canadian governments, federal, provincial or municipal, in secret tribunals outside the Canadian court system if those govern-

Also, the FIPA would tie our hands for 31 years, making it possible for China’s companies to challenge Canadian laws that create jobs, protect our environment and build healthy communities with billiondollar lawsuits that would cost taxpayers dearly. Canada has already spent hundreds of millions on penalties from lawsuits launched under the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), and right now Belgium is facing a $3-billion suit from one of China’s companies because of a similar foreign investor agreement.

She then put a challenge to church representatives attending, “So, if you know of anyone who has, or knows of a building, or big old house we could have, this would be greatly appreciated.” The CHSN is funded from many different sources McDonnell explained, one of which is direct fund-raising events. A “Food for Thought” art show and auction in August yielded over $5,000 for the agency which serves the immediate community and provides transit to Belleville from Madoc, Marmora, Stirling, Tweed and points in between. For further information on the program call 613-473-5255 or go on line at <>.

The CHSN is responsible for the local food bank, transit program, a volunteer drive program and a resource service to assist individuals in crisis by directing them to agencies and funding streams for solutions to their problems. McDonnell shared longterm plans for CHSN which includes upgrading of transit vehicles, adding programs to the food bank service and a new perspective of combining all programs into one location. “We are referring to this location as ‘The Hub,’ containing the food bank, kitchen, a cafeteria, a garden and gathering space for life skills coaching and teaching.”

five, where do you fall between “Let me die without medical intervention” and “Don’t give up on me no matter what? Try any proven or unproven intervention possible.” 2. If there were a choice, would you choose to die at home, or in a hospital? 3. Could a loved one correctly describe how you’d like to be treated in the case of a terminal illness? 4. Is there someone you trust whom you’ve appointed to advocate on your behalf when the time is near? 5. Have you completed any of the following: written a living will, appointed a healthcare power of attorney or completed an advanced directive? During the writing process, she knew she had to be organized. She kept a journal, set up message boards, set out a curriculum/method of operations, and proceeded to manage the care of her parents with the same dedication she had for her career in education. “Most people would prefer not to die in an institution, but, they often need more than home care can give.” Jilks summarized costs for institutional care. Chronic or rehabilitation inpatient care costs an average of $225,000 per year, while long-term care runs about $53,000 a year. Home care costs on the average of $4,000 per year when complemented by a family member.  “Not all caregivers are qualified to work with palliative patients.” She points out she learned this when dealing with her father’s pain management. “Many professionals are ignorant of pain management and the signs of pain; many are inadequately trained to deal with this stage of life. “This is where Hospice is so essential.

OPEN HOUSE Sun. Nov 4th 12 - 1:30pm 12941 Hwy 62, Madoc


EMC News - Madoc Heart of Hastings Hospice held its 2012 annual general meeting Monday, October 22, in Madoc. Members welcomed seven newly accredited volunteers and honoured those with long-term service. The number of volunteers now stands at 34. A few moments of silence were observed to remember those who have passed on during the past year. Debbie Waller, assistant coordinator of Heart of Hastings Hospice (HHH), then introduced guest speaker Jennifer Jilks, author of “Living and Dying with Dignity”. Jilks published her book in 2008, accounting her experiences, and insight into longterm care (LTC) after caring for her terminally ill parents. Her mother passed in 2006 and her father in 2007.  “As a result of caring for my parents my life took a totally different direction.” Jilks spoke candidly, “From what I experienced throughout that time I just could not go back to my former life.” She suffered burnout and depression. After taking an early retirement she now dedicates herself to hospice work, writing, and a number of volunteer roles in care giving. She hosts two blogs through her web site <www.>. Patient dignity is essential. A good palliative care giver asks the patient: “What should I know about you as a person that will help me take the best care of you that I can?” Jilks points out family, friends and professional care givers need to pursue this information with ABCD: A - attitude, B - behaviour, C compassion and D - dialogue.  “Of course one needs to get this out of the way before the patient is incapacitated or cannot reason. Once your loved one is declared incompetent, someone needs to be in charge!” When faced with a terminal illness, Jilks stressed all involved must ask themselves five pertinent questions: 1. On a scale from one to

the Grade 1 to 3 category, Grace Carr-Braint, noted she wanted to make a poster that showed her being healthy with her father. “It’s me and daddy going on the trail with skateboards,” she said. Posters were evaluated by local artist Bob Pennycook on their creativity, message, and on how their art related to the selected themes. The top three students were selected in the following categories: Grades 1 to 3, Grades 4 to 6, and Grades 7 and 8 and their artwork will be displayed in the Gateway CHC waiting room in the near future.

EMC News - Stirling The local fire department has added to its emergency response arsenal with a pair of motorized saws recently purchased through fund raising. Fire Chief Rick Caddick says the saws, one a standard chainsaw and the other a rescue saw designed to cut through steel, concrete and other building materials, were purchased with monies raised through a recent boat and motor raffle. With the rescue saw alone valued at about $4,000, Caddick says, “the addition of these saws will enhance the ability and safety of the vol-

unteer firefighters.” “We got the saws from Bill Thompson of Wm. Thompson Farm Supply and he’s been just great to deal with,” Caddick says. “He gave us extra blades and fuel tanks and the blades for the rescue saw are $300.” The purpose-built Stihl saw “has the ability to cut through metal and virtually any material to make entry or to ventilate a structure,” Caddick says. The second saw is a large commercial type chain saw that can assist with access to any area. The members of the department wish to thank the community.

A ghostly robin?

EMC News - It’s not unusual to see a flock of migrating robins

on one’s lawn at this time of year, but if one of them is almost pure white, it’s definitely cause for surprise. Between October 24 and 29, Marmora residents Ben and Ada Kortekaas, had daily visits from one such bird which travels in the company of the more traditionally coloured robins. It exhibits all the usual traits of its ilk, cocking its head from side to side, chirping, and hopping about the lawn in search of edibles, which Kortekaas thinks in this case might be grubs. Photo:

My Theatre holds open house to promote season five By Kate Everson

EMC Entertainment Trenton - The fifth season of My Theatre opened with a celebration on October 26 as friends and fans gathered in the renovated upstairs of the historic town hall on King Street. “This is a beautiful building,” said Laura Rickards, promoting the theatre. “Many volunteer hours went into it.” She credited “Shawn and Johnny” for having done a lot of the work painting. Shawn Ellis, president of the Trent Port Historical Society, added that Johnny Fletcher did 220 hours of painting. “Johnny never missed a day of work,” he said with a smile. Shawn’s mother Lorraine made the beautiful curtains and his father Harvey painted for 140 hours. Ellis noted that with the support of the historical society, My Theatre needed no funding from Trenval this year. Artistic director Len Hirst, claiming to be the oldest member, said he was very proud of what has happened here. He credited the

Trent Port Historical Society for picking up the bill for renovations. “We are really grateful,” he said. Carl Cashin, president of the Bay of Quinte Community Players (My Theatre), said this all started four years ago with a small theatre group. “We have come so far in four years,” he said with a smile. He noted that the first Trenton theatre group actually started in the 1950s with Jim Alexander, but that guild joined with Belleville. “This is a wonderful thing for Trenton,” he said. He noted that this season includes three plays: two farces and a comedy. “This is very unusual,” he said. “We have put

on really good dramas to empty houses, but farces have sold out the house. This is the way of theatre today. People have so much stress in their lives they just want to relax and watch something that

The play was written by Michael and Susan Parker and is directed by Len Hirst. Opening night for the performance is November 15 at 8 p.m. The cast of the play took a bow on stage.

Hypnosis a laughing matter for Cole

Hypnotist Richard Cole offers instructions to a group of volunteers during a show at the Lions Hall in Stirling recently. The show offered plenty of laughs for those in attendance.

enjoyable, with plenty of laughs thrown in. Cole performed at the Lions Hall as part of the club’s Scarecrow Weekend

“But it was interesting, that’s for sure.” And for many in the audience, Cole’s subjects were indeed the stars of the show. Expressions exchanged when instructed to fall madly in love with their neighbour were just as amusing as the responses to the unexpected nudists. And while the participants were affected in varying degrees, most agreed it was a highly entertaining experience. For Peter Kooistra, who during the show was momentarily unable to unclasp his hands, says he wasn’t quite sure what to expect when he volunteered. “But it was interesting, that’s for sure.” For volunteer Shirley Deck, the experience was less transfixing than hoped. “Apparently I have too active an imagination,” she says of her inability to slip into a hypnotic state. But she admits her time onstage, being as much a spectator as a participant, was both memorable and

Urging his “stars of the show” to relax and focus on their breathing, Cole soon had them imagining heavy buckets held in each hand, or helium balloons, before conjuring images that put his subjects in a deep freeze or in a seaside heat wave.

4H reports for November 2012

Hastings County held their Annual Awards Banquet and Volunteers Appreciation Night on October 20th. 4-H members Brianna Dracup and Rebecca Redner began the program with the Grace and the Pledge. There were eleven clubs represented and each club recognized their members. During the event they introduced two 4-H Ontario Ambassadors; Victoria Kyle and Steve Stockdale. The 4-H Ontario Ambassador program provides youth with advanced level training in leadership, citizenship, communications and public relations. Ambassadors channel their energy and 4-H experiences into recruiting new Members and sharing the 4-H story. Up to six current 4-H members, ages 17-21, are selected annually to represent 4-H Ontario Ambassadors. Ambassadors promote the 4-H Program by attending events across the province as well as other community events. National and International opportunities may arise as well. AwArd of Achievement Recipients of the Gay Lea Award of Achievement receive

a limited edition print. The Award of Achievement is sponsored by Gay Lea Food Co-Operative Ltd. and awarded to members who have completed 24 projects and five years as a 4-H member. This year Hastings County had three members receiving the award: Chantal Lauzon, Gina Posthumus and McKinley Townsend. Each Club has a variety of executive positions. These positions work with each other and other Club Members, to accomplish goals set by Club Members. They also help guide meetings to ensure everything runs smoothly. The roles of President, Vice President, Treasurer, Secretary and Press Reporter are typical positions in each Club. All Club members vote to elect their peers to these positions. These executive roles also provide leadership opportunities for Members.

Woodlot Conference a feast for friends of the forest

Complete Renovations Custom work for all your building needs



Additions • Garages Kitchen & Bathrooms Roofing • Decks Windows & Doors

EMC News - Trenton - The 23rd Woodlot Conference will be held Friday, November 23, from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Knights of Columbus Hall in Trenton. Registration is accepted until November 9 to ensure a lunch. “It is open to the general public,” notes Susan Moore. “People come from all over eastern Ontario. It has the latest updates on forestry, how to plant trees and forest techniques that work in your own backyard.” Moore notes the $25 admission includes a wonderful roast beef or pork lunch provided by Doug and Helen Turpin. “It’s worth admission just for the lunch,” she says with a laugh. Cliff MacLean from Tweed, chair of the Hastings Stewardship Council, has been attending for 12 years. He points out that the 47 stewardship councils across Ontario are being phased out by March 2013 and that the funding for co-ordinators will also be gone. The councils have sponsored the Woodlot Conferences every year. “This cannot die,” he says. “We must continue on.” He says losing the Ministry of Natural Resources funding for the programs is a great opportunity for individuals to make it even better. “The MNR is a bureaucratic nightmare,” he says. “We’ll

be there relying on the members to step up to the bar.” MacLean expects about 175 to 200 people to attend the conference, which includes ten stewardship councils in this area. He raves about the quality of the speakers attending this year. The morning presentations include: 1) 9:30 - 10 a.m. Patrick Hodge - Forest Health Technical Specialist - presenting The Emerald Ash Borer: Don’t Liquidate Your Forest on a Perceived Threat plus Effects of the Drought on your Woodlot; 2) 10:05 - 10:45 a.m. Dr. Sean Westerveld - Ginseng and Medicinal Herbs Specialist - presenting Medicinal Herbs in Your Woodlot; and 3) 11:15 - 12 p.m. Bill Beaton - from Loyalist Timber Framing - on Barn Architecture: Restoration and Building with Forest Timbers. “The emerald ash borer is coming,” he says. “Patrick Hodge encourages people to not cut down their ash trees but to treat them for it, building a stronger species.” The optional afternoon field trip to Bloomfield is to see how to restore old barns, from one of the oldest barrel makers (coopers) in Canada, Carriage House Cooperage

and also includes a visit to the Gilead Distillery. Those choosing to stay inside can hear more speakers including at 1:15 p.m. Sean Westerfeld on non-timber products like fiddleheads and wild leeks; at 1:45 Shawn Bloom, with further discussion on emerald ash borers, and at 2:15 Bill Goulding will talk on sustainable trails. There will also be 20 to 30 exhibitors with related for-

Road costs worry Hastings councillors By Jack Evans

EMC News - Marmora Rising road costs are starting to threaten Hastings County municipalities, county council was told Thursday at a meeting held in Marmora Town Hall. The concerns came primarily from smaller northern municipalities where populations as small as a few hundred are wrestling with maintaining miles of former provincial highway and county roads to adequate standards for commercial

and tourism traffic. Reeve Dan McCaw of Wollaston Township opened the discussion, urging that council make a more concerted effort to obtain more funding or else get the province to upload some sections they downloaded to local municipalities some years ago. “If your roads fall through, you’re done,” he said. He stated that one section of major road alone in his township cost $76,000 to maintain … and that spread

over only some 500 people. His concerns were quickly echoed by several other county councillors, even the Village of Stirling representative. Reeve Owen Ketcheson reminded that the province is spending millions of dollars on Highway 62, especially in the Belleville-Foxboro area, so is aware of the traffic and conditions on that highway. Warden Rick Phillips reported that he and senior staff have been negotiating with the province to get a better deal on road funding but so far to no avail. He also noted the county already plows its share of federal gasoline tax back to its member municipalities. A motion to have the warden name a special committee to deal with the problems was passed unanimously. In other business, Warden Phillips is likely to remain in the post for another year. In preparation for the inaugural session of council for next year in November, CAO Jim Pine presided over nominations for warden. The only name put forward was that of the incumbent, Rick Phillips, Reeve of Tyendinaga. The nomination will be confirmed by vote next month. Council also heard a delegation from the Kingston hospital complex, thanking them for their contribution to new construction needs and reporting on how their donation is being used.

EMC Sports - On Saturday, October 27, the Centre Hastings Novice Grizzlies hosted their annual tournament in Marmora. Judging by all the energy and smiling faces in the building, the event was a lot of fun for the six teams that took part. The host team didn’t waste any time getting started, and they defeated Norwood 12 - 2 in their opening game. Leading the way for the Grizzlies were Heiden Leonard and captain Connor Hunt who scored nine goals between them, several of which were of the highlight reel variety. In game two, the Grizzlies faced off against the Bancroft Jets. After falling behind early, the Grizzlies poured on the offence

Offensive outbursts by the line of Nick Oke, Connor Hunt and Kellen Dostaler kept the crowd on their feet throughout all three periods. In regular season play, the Grizzlies defeated the Ennismore Eagles by a final score of 9 - 1 on Sunday, October 28, in Marmora. Up next for the Novice Grizzlies is a road game Friday, November 2 in Stirling versus the Blues at 6:30 p.m. and another road game on Sunday, November 4, versus Brighton at noon.

After thrilling victories by Norwood in the C final and Campbellford in the B final, the A final promised to be a barn burner between Centre Hastings and a previously unbeaten team from South Ottawa. The Richmond/ West-Carleton team had not lost yet this season and steamrolled their way to the final where they were surprised by a resilient squad of Grizzlies who refused to go away.

mora. Although the Grizzlies carried the play for a good portion of the contest, it was the Stirling goaltender who stole the show, earning his squad a 3 - 0 win over the home team. On Saturday, the Peewee AE team travelled to Whitby to play the Crusaders from Oshawa. The Grizzlies showed the home team they meant business, with a number of hard hits that seemed to catch the Crusaders off guard. Centre Hastings jumped out to a 2 - 0 lead on goals by Nathan O’Connor and Austin Smith with assists from Eric Ramsey, Nick Hutchings and Jade Bronson. In the second period, the Grizzlies found themselves down two players and the Crusaders wasted no time in potting two goals to tie the game at two. Eric Ramsey quickly put Centre Hastings up 3 - 2 with assists by Jamie Shorts and Juliana Croskery. With strong defensive play and great goaltending, the Grizzlies kept the lead until a strange bounce eluded their goalie, tying the game. It was the last scoring for either side, resulting in a 3 - 3 tie. Next up for the Peewee AE Grizzlies is a home game on Friday, November 2, against Port Hope in Madoc at 7:30 p.m., a road game on Saturday versus P.E.C. in Picton at 5 p.m. and Sunday in Stirling at 5:30 p.m. The Bantam Grizzlies headed to Wellington to play the P.E.C. Kings on Thursday, October 25, and came away with a 4 - 1 loss. Just two days later on Saturday was a rematch in the Kings’ home tourney. This time the Grizzlies managed a 1 - 1 tie in a wellplayed game. In game two, Centre Hastings matched up against the Ingersoll Express. Behind goals from Brandon Forestell, Brayden Bertrand, Jacob Preston and Kyle Cooke the Grizzlies earned a 4 - 3 win. Not all went well in this game; Dylan Whyte took a hard shot off his hand and will be joining teammate Dakota Antoski on the injured list. Game three was a semi-final contest versus a strong Tweed Hawks team. Although the Grizzlies fought hard to the end, it wasn’t enough as they lost 4 - 1. Next up for the Bantam Grizzlies is a home game on Friday, November 2, at 8:30 in Marmora against the Frontenac Flyers and on Saturday a road game against the Ennismore Eagles at 5 p.m. Upcoming games for other Centre Hastings Grizzlies teams include the Atom A Grizzlies hosting the Frontenac Flyers on Thursday, November 1, in Marmora at 6:30 p.m., and facing the P.E.C. Kings on November 4 in Marmora at 4:30 p.m.

Hydro project gets solid regional support

By Jack Evans

EMC News - Marmora A handful of protesters bravely waved their signs in front of Marmora Municipal Offices Thursday where Hastings County Council was gathering for its October meeting. They remained staunchly opposed to the proposed pumped storage electricity generating project by Northland Power using the former Marmoraton Mining iron ore pit. Despite their arguments, Marmora and Lake Council remains firmly committed to the project. After Thursday’s meeting, it is also heartily endorsed by the entire County of Hastings, plus the County of Peterborough and the cities of Belleville and Quinte West. All had representation at the meeting, which included a tour of the mine pit area and details on how the project would work. John Wright, executive director of Northland, reviewed how the technology has been around for some years and is used widely across the United States and in Europe. Proven as environmentally clean, safe, long lasting and effective, pump and store systems use off-peak (night time) electricity to el-

Following an October 25 meeting of County Council held in the Marmora council chambers, attendees climbed onto a bus and headed out to the mine to tour the site of the proposed Marmora Pumped Storage project. While there, on a perfect autumn day with the former mine in the background, positive input relating to the project was voiced by many, among them Marmora’s Reeve, Terry Clemens; Northland Power personnel, John Wright and Sam Mantenuto; MPP Todd Smith; Hastings County Warden, Rick Phillips; Jay Murray Jones, the Warden of Peterborough County; and Neil Ellis, Mayor of Belleville.

when activated in daytime, could provide up to 400 megawatts of power for up

to five hours straight during peak electricity use hours, or to accommodate extra loads,

said Wright. It would require hundreds of construction jobs

had no reason to destroy,” added McCann. “We do all this for the community.” But the damage is of a greater concern because of the type of tree vandalized: the butternut, a species protected under the Endangered Species Act. How rare is the butternut? According to a Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR) fact sheet, there are about 13,000 left in Ontario. Not many for a province spanning 1.076 million square kilometres. That’s one for every 82 square kilometres. The urgency to save the

trees has prompted the Ontario Forest Gene Conservation Association to establish a Butternut Conservation Group, and one of its main objectives is to locate diseaseresistant individuals to propagate tree seedlings for planting. “This was a good opportunity to establish an at-risk species in the area,” said Brighton Councillor Craig Kerr, who doubles as chairperson of the Lower Trent Conservation Authority. “Now that’s been wiped out.” According to the MNR web site, the Endangered

Species Act came into effect on June 30, 2008, “making Ontario a North American leader in the protection and recovery of species at risk and their habitats.” And the fines are hefty. In the case of a corporation, a first offender is liable to a fine of not more than $1 million. Individual offenders could be fined up to $250,000, imprisonment for up to a year, or both. The fines double for a second offence. As well, if an offence involves more than one animal, plant or other organism, the number involved multiplies the

maximum fine. According to the latest Northumberland OPP statistics, calls for service relating to mischief incidents are actually down this year compared to the three-year average in the eastern end of the county. To the end of September, police have logged 152 calls in Brighton (45), Trent Hills (77) and Cramahe (30). For the same period, the threeyear average—from 2009 to 2011—is 186. Vandalism is usually committed by adolescent boys between the ages of 10 and 19 and counts for almost half

for up to two years or more to complete the project, and continue to operate with a specialized high-paid staff of up to 40 jobs. The small number of opponents continue to suspect corporate greed, danger of flood disaster and misleading information lie behind the project. Northland officials contend the Marmora pit is a “gem” in terms of allowing an exceptionally high drop of water to generate power (almost five times greater than that of Niagara Falls) and close proximity (eight kilometres) to a major provincial power grid line. Cost of construction would be about $600 million. Hastings County Warden Rick Phillips, Peterborough County Warden Murray Jones, Mayor Neil Ellis of Belleville, Councillor Jim Harrison representing Quinte West, and Prince Edward-Hastings MPP Todd Smith all registered support for the project. The gathering on the edge of the spectacular vista looking over the 700-foot-deep pit, was told that construction could start next year if final approvals by the Ministry of the Environment are timely, and be in service in 2016.

EMC News - Campbellford - Breakdancing and hip hop in the kitchen is what is hot about “Ill Skillz”, a multicultural group of young people whose love of entertaining and inspiring others motivates them to perform. And they are coming to Campbellford District High School (CDHS) as part of a “healthy eating” initiative being offered by the Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge (HKPR) District Health Unit. “The intent of the program is to teach youth participants to prepare simple, healthy meals and snacks as well as to promote resiliency in a fun and engaging manner,” said Kimberly Leadbeater, public health dietitian. The workshops are held every two weeks and include six sessions after school. “We are hoping to get 25 students interested in taking the program,” she explained. A grant for $3,975 from the Campbellford Seymour Community Foundation is helping to make it happen. “We were very fortunate to receive funding from the Foundation which has allowed us to contract Ill Skillz

an international hip-hop team that specializes in youth resiliency,” Leadbeater told EMC. The group will appear at CDHS during an assembly on January 8, 2013, at 1:45 p.m. at the end of the program. “Their focus will be general resiliency,” Leadbeater said. She is being joined by Jennifer Valcamp, a public health promoter and Patricia Stuckless, a health food worker, from health unit for the workshops. “Over the years we’ve found some of the population has lost the ability to prepare meals from scratch just because of the modern convenience of opening a box and using microwaves. We want to teach the students how to prepare simple and easy meals they can enjoy,” Leadbeater explained to EMC. The format will provide the opportunity to address other issues that affect students such as peer pressure, substance misuse and more. “The school is committed to this and thinks this is a great idea,” she said. “Ill Skillz is a way to engage the students. From my perspective if you can engage the youth and make them want to make their own meals and help them see how easy it can be and still be good then it’s a win-win for everyone,” Since 2002, Ill Skillz has actively taken their award winning show and workshops to elementary schools, high schools, and special events to hundreds of thousands in

Ontario, Atlantic Canada, the Arctic, and the U.S. The “highly sought-after” group of young motivational speakers and hip-hop performers are from the Greater Toronto Area. The message they deliver and the show they present reflect their cultures as well as their youth. Their show “The Talk” addresses teenage stressors that include, but are not limited to, drugs and alcohol, peer pressure, racism and education. They discuss “Unlocking your Dreams,” goal setting and creating backup plans. At the high school in Campbellford Carlos Taguba of Ill Skillz will facilitate discussion on finding substitutes for cigarettes and “discuss rerouting youth spending power to positive outlets and help youth discover their passion,” said Leadbeater. Participating students who are non-smokers may find this useful in helping a friend or family member to quit smoking. “As well a spoken word poetry workshop [rap] dealing with body image, mental health and stress during which performances will be recorded and a digital copy will be made available “to inspire them to continue with the art form as a tool to keep respecting and caring for their mind and bodies”. The program starts next month. Students who are interested are invited to contact CDHS Vice-Principal Christine Orton.

Those that are may be fined, pay retribution, or sentenced to “community service.” And, according to the letter of the law, parents of children under 16 can be held liable for their children’s actions. But, according to Statistics Canada victimization surveys, some 60 to 70 per cent of crimes aren’t reported to police, even though vandalism, the largest unreported crime in Canada, costs approximately $100 million per year.

Campaign for one Northumberland gearing up By Ray Yurkowski

EMC News - Cobourg Northumberland County councillors are asking residents to help keep their name on the political map. The plea for support comes on the heels of a Federal Electoral Boundaries Commission recommendation to divide the county in half to create the new ridings of Kawartha Lakes-Port Hope-Cobourg and Prince Edward-Quinte West.

With “1Northumberland,” citizens can log on and vote in an online poll and petition, which supports maintaining county boundaries within one federal electoral district. County councillors unanimously approved the plan to provide a way for residents to make their voices heard and the vote tally will be presented at Commission hearings later this month. Economic development

director Dan Borowec explains the challenges at the county level if the proposed changes are given the go-ahead. “We’ve invested a fair amount of time in branding the word, ‘Northumberland,’” he said. “With the proposed changes, the name does not exist and any recognition in the House of Commons or Queen’s Park would be negated.” “Further to that,” he

added. “Having two MPs and two MPPs represent the county would certainly make for some challenges in terms of trying to get some continuity in funding support for the area.” Trent Hills Mayor Hector Macmillan agrees. “The proposed changes will have significant negative impacts on the future prosperity of the county by eliminating the name Northumberland completely from the electoral

map,” he said. “We’re asking people who support the idea of one Northumberland to go online and vote ‘yes,’” added Borowec.

Reality Check:

Sheila Wray Gregoire EMC Lifestyles - When my babies were first born I was home with them fulltime. And babies don’t talk. They may cry, but conversation isn’t their strong point. And so it was that I turned to television. Every day, from 1 p.m. until 5 p.m., my TV was on nonstop. First it was three soap

operas in a row: Days of Our Lives, All My Children, General Hospital. Then, at four, came Oprah. In fact, my TV was on constantly, so that I could hear some voices in my house (and not just in my head). However, I began to notice I was rather melancholy when bedtime came around. Every Thursday night I would wander into my bedroom forlorn. Keith would try to talk me out of my mood, which is never a good idea, because we women like having our moods. And one Thursday, while I was obsessing about my inconsiderate husband, the lightbulb went off. I realized that I was always melancholy on Thursdays because that was the night I watched ER. What a de-


Creeping screens

pressing show! Every week someone died in a car accident, or some child was horrendously abused, or someone lost a limb. It was terrible.    I didn’t want to live consumed with the ugliness or life, so we got rid of our television, cold turkey. I became much happier. I had more time with my girls. I sought out friends for conversation. Life grew bigger. Last week I was at a bloggers’ conference, and this topic came up. I know a bloggers’ conference sounds insane, but I actually get quite a bit of traffic to my blog (I mostly talk marriage and relationships), and I wanted to network with some of the women I know online. One of those women was a younger blogger who was

trying to balance her online community with raising two small children. She asked me what I thought about all of these young moms blogging. Are they ignoring their kids? I replied that I was thankful blogging wasn’t around when my children were young, or I would have been sucked in and it would have taken too much of my time, just like it has now. And at that moment I had another epiphany, just like the one I had that Thursday night 15 years ago. For the last decade and a half I have been so proud of myself for being able to give up television. I realized, though, that over the last few years I have simply traded one vice for another. Yes, I have got-

ten rid of the TV. But blogs, and Facebook, and Twitter and Pinterest have eaten up just as much time—if not more. Technology creeps. We spend so much time in front of screens that we ignore those we love. Men play on video games until the wee hours of the morning, leaving wives wondering if their husbands still have libidos. Women spend so much time talking to pseudo-friends on Facebook that their real live families feel ignored. And teens create communities on their computers, not in their living rooms. I can’t quit the online world cold turkey because it’s my job. So my only recourse, over the last few years, has been to head

outdoors. When our family needs to connect, we go walking or hiking or biking or birding or camping. We get out, where the computer can’t touch us. Yet I see another threat on the horizon. Currently I have a Blackberry, and I’ve always found it a little cumbersome to check things online. But I’m due for another free phone upgrade, and I’ve been tempted toward an iPhone. I think, though, that I may say no. I don’t want technology to follow me even when I’m walking and hiking and birding and camping. I still need time just with my family. I hope this time I can keep my resolve. Find Sheila (and her blog) at <>.

The Good Earth:

Composting “diseased” leaves the old-time farmers gave to hay. There was an understanding that folks who sold their hay for off-farm use were slowly depleting the soil in which it grew. The next time you’re raking up this fall’s offerings, think about how much stuff was needed to make all of those leaves.  Without get-

ting into a lot of details, it should be clear that leaves are organic matter. I am not aware of any agronomist or hortulan who doesn’t advocate returning organic matter to the soil. So, it does wonder me when I see bags of them setting on the side of the curb waiting for the municipality to trundle

them off to a big composting centre, where other, cleverer people can use them on their estates. (Check the archives of this newspaper to find columns about the benefits of composting and how to make leaf mould.) There are concerns about which leaves you can use as mulch, which you can use if composted and those you should not use at all. Perhaps the most common concern centres around black walnut (Juglans nigra) and to a lesser extent butternut (J.cinerea.) and other walnuts such as Persian, Carpathian and English which are grafted onto black walnut root stock. These trees will secrete juglone from their roots into the soil. Most folks with walnuts growing in their area have already experienced the natural selection process caused by the juglone.  At our home, we watched a musk rose; a Makamik crab-apple and a French hybrid lilac succumb. The plants that remain and the new ones we plant (carefully researched) are tolerant to this toxin.  From that perspective, there is

no problem with mulching the fallen leaves directly into the surrounding flowerbeds or onto the lawn. We do need to be careful if we are using it in the veggie patches as the solanum group (potatoes, tomatoes, eggplant) are very sensitive. In fact, one of the tests for “safe” walnut leaf compost is to pop a few tomato seedlings into it. Two to four weeks in a hot compost pile is enough to render it safe. There are two other diseases that have been showing up more recently, tar spot and anthracnose, both caused by different fungi. Tar spot can infect quite a few different plants, willow, holly and goldenrod, as well as the maples where it is most noticeable. Tar spot looks like a black blob of tar on the surface of the leaf. It has been around for a very long time in North America and has been in our cities as long as we have had cities. With the popularity of Norway maples and its attendant fungus which produces very large blobs, tar spot has gained a lot more attention. High heat composts will kill the fungus but most of us don’t have compost piles that reach those temperatures. When you compost, remember to turn the pile regularly so that all of the leaf material gets a turn at the hot spot in the centre. Collecting infected leaves only works if the entire neighbourhood gets in on the act. In reality, there is not much you can do; but fortunately, it is rare that

Dan Clost a tree will succumb to this fungus. So compost these leaves as you would any other. Concentrate on providing your tree with good cultural conditions. Anthracnose is another noticeable fungus that is appearing on maple, ash and oaks.  Look for brown spots or areas on leaves and occasional curling. Leaf scorch is often mistaken for this and vice versa. Scorch usually begins uniformly along the margins and between veins: anthracnose begins on the veins and moves outward.  The same codicils for composting tar spotted leaves apply here. Are there any diseases that preclude us from composting leaves?  There is no easy answer; Internet advice is split. The educational sites, such as those from universities and the Composting Council of Canada (CCC) don’t say, “No.” They do say that the pile must get hot enough. (Use a meat thermometer.) Many grass roots organisations, including the CCC, have excellent information on their web sites on how to make good compost.

Attending the Toronto Police Games at the Rogers Centre By John M. Smith

EMC Lifestyles - My wife and I recently spent a Saturday in Toronto, attending the Toronto Police Games at the Rogers Centre. After all, our son (actually my stepson), Warren, was a participant in the relay obstacle course event, and his Ontario Power Generation (OPG) team emerged as victors. This was the 130th annual Toronto Police Games, and the last 20 of these events have been held at the Rogers Centre. The doors opened for this year’s event at 1 p.m., and tickets cost $15. There was even a deal with parking, for it usually would cost $20 to park at the Rogers Centre, but it was reduced to a more reasonable $8 for this special event. Proceeds from the afternoon’s activities went into the Service’s Widows and Orphans Fund. The host of this year’s event was CTV’s news anchor Ken Shaw. There were live bands performing before and after the games.

The Toronto Argonauts cheerleaders were also a part of the show, and along with the athletic events that took place, including highly competitive tugs of war and relays, there were also some traditional components, including a march past parade and a display of a variety of police vehicles and equipment. This year, the ultimate K-9 unit was a part of the spectacle, as well as a mounted ceremonial guard, and the service’s Pipe Band, which was celebrating its 100th birthday. At the beginning of the show, some officers rappelled from the roof of the building onto the stadium playing field itself, carrying the Canadian flag. During the show, in between the athletic events, some skilled dogs performed—catching Frisbees—and completing an obstacle course of their own. One entertaining dog “wiped out” when he leaped to catch a Frisbee, for his trainer had hurled it near a speaker, and the determined

dog had jumped right into the speaker in an attempt to catch it! However, the dog bounced right back up, unharmed, and pursued the next thrown Frisbee. This Toronto Police Amateur Athletic Association event went beyond just having competitors from the police force itself, for there were also teams representing the military police, emergency services (EMS), nuclear response force (OPG), the media (coached by Ben Johnson), and even a group of students from Centennial College. At the end of the day, the Toronto Police emerged as the victors in the tug of war (defeating the military police in the final), and the OPG group defeated the Toronto Police team in the final of the relay obstacle course. During this latter event, individual team members raced around a course that included scaling a six-foothigh wall, carrying heavy bar bells for a particular distance, doing some fancy footwork by stepping through a rope ladder laid out on the ground, tugging and pulling a heavy object on a rope for a designated distance, zigzagging around a series of pylons, ascending

and descending a sloped area, and constantly rushing, in a near frenzy, trying to beat the opponent and achieving the best time. As soon as one member of a team completed the rigorous course, another began it, and the first team of four members that completed the course (providing they hadn’t lost time by getting penalties along the route) won! Since there were qualifying runs that led up to the final, the OPG team competed in this event three times that afternoon, and our son ran the lead portion (the first competitor on the course) all three times. After the victory, we went down

Rapelling from the roof with the flag.

onto the field, where we met the other team members, including Lindsay Garbatt, the former featherweight and junior lightweight boxing champ (who actually fought and won a match, back in 2008, at our very own Quinte Sports Centre). We were, of course, very proud of Warren and the team’s accomplishment; his wife, Dana, and their young son, Fin (less than nine months old), were also there

to cheer him on. After the competition was over, we all went out to dinner together, to celebrate. The Toronto Police Games didn’t attract a humungous crowd, so you could certainly get tickets if you wanted to check it out for yourself in the future. You’ll then discover that you can sit wherever you want (no reserved seating). For us, it proved to be an entertaining afternoon.
