Remembrance Day service in Tweed By Richard Barkosky

EMC News - Tweed Mild temperatures and sunny skies prevailed at the Remembrance Day service in Tweed. Where often scarves, gloves, and winter coats would be seen, this year’s gathering was attired in much lighter clothing thanks to the Indian summer-like nature of the day. Inasmuch as November 11 fell on a Sunday, there were no classrooms of schoolchildren in attendance, although numbers generally were not much decreased compared with other years. Headed by the flag-bearing colour party, marchers proceeded from the Tweed Legion Branch #428 parking lot to the lakefront Lions Park where the memorial service was held. Behind the colour party was the green-uniformed 1 RCR contingent from Petawawa, in numbers sufficient to warrant two buses for transport. A slightly smaller assemblage, the blue-uniformed 436 squadron from CFB 8 Wing in Trenton, followed behind. Arriving at the park, the

service men remained in ranks and at attention near the perimeter while the colour party advanced to a position of honour immedi-

ately behind the Cenotaph. Legion Chaplain Wendell White greeted the crowd and offered a prayer of invocation. O Canada was sung.

For her Remembrance Day message, the Reverend Caroline Giesbrecht spoke of the dedication and heroism of each of the military

personnel who served in the wars. She especially noted the terrible effects on those who return, seemingly Please see “Remembrance” on page 2

EMC News - Marmora With flags flying and a police escort nearby, a solemn parade comprised of Legion members, Cadets, representatives from 8 Wing Trenton, and others carrying wreaths to be reverently placed at the base of the cenotaph, made its way along the highway to Memorial Park on November 11. A hush fell over the crowd gathered on the warm and sunny autumn day as the procession approached the monument in preparation for the annual Remembrance Day ceremony, held to honour those who sacrificed their lives in the service of their country. As was read from Lau-

rence Binyon’s well-known ode, For the Fallen, “They shall not grow old as we that are left grow old … We will remember them. We will remember them.” Prior to the actual placement of the wreaths, Legion Padre Brian Webber led all in heartfelt prayer after which solemn notes emanated from the bagpipe played, as in the past, by Ed Neil, filling the air with the sounds of lament. Following that, wreaths were laid in recognition of Queen Elizabeth, the Province of Ontario, the Silver Cross Mother, and by representatives of local schools, businesses, churches, organizations, clubs, and families, with a Please see “Marmora” on page 3

EMC News - Stirling - Local councillors want further details before they agree to accept the minutes of the most recent meeting of the Economic Development Committee, putting planned improvements to the farmers’ market on hold. Deputy-mayor Wilfred Shier raised several questions when the minutes were tabled at the regular meeting of Stirling-Rawdon council earlier this week, relating to improvements at the farmers’ market, grant

ing but expenses could run from $100,000 to $150,000, Mayor Rodney Cooney says, adding there should be some way of recouping some of the municipality’s costs from users. Shier told council he was only made aware of the plan as a result of a story in the EMC last week reporting on the final day at this year’s farmers’ market. “I hadn’t heard anything about it,” Shier says of the improvements. “I haven’t seen anything in the minutes.

sis, Councillor Bob Mullin explained. A motion to accept the minutes was defeated with Councillor Grant Hagerman adding, “we do have to have further clarification.” In other business, council welcomed the appointment of Derrick Morgan as a volunteer firefighter,

agreed to extend the current agreement with the Stirling Festival Theatre for an additional five-year term and approved this year’s Christmas decorating contest which, as in previous years, will feature StirlingRawdon Bucks prizes of $150, $125 and $100 to the top three contestants.

uninjured, yet continue to suffer from unseen damage. Physical injuries are quite visible, but often unseen devastation can have lifelong effects. Chaplain White returned to the microphone to announce the laying of the wreaths. Representatives of nearby churches, schools, banks and businesses, as well as government bodies, contributed wreaths, setting them at the base of the Cenotaph to honour the fallen in the two World Wars. In addition, wreaths honouring the fallen were laid in memory of family members by private individuals. A separate edifice is also decorated in the memory of those who fell in the Afghanistan conflict. The service was closed with prayer and the singing of God Save the Queen. With the colour party returning to the front, and to the sound of a lone drummer, the troops marched back to the Legion.

Holiday event signalled on Victoria Street North By Richard Barkosky

EMC News - Tweed - The first sign of the rapidly approaching holiday season appeared in a showroom window on Victoria Street North in Tweed this week. In preparation for their ninth annual Festival of Trees, the event’s organizing committee decorated the Corporate Sponsor Christmas tree in the front window of Bush Furniture. This tree will remain here until the end of the month, alerting passersby that the four-day festival is coming soon. This year, the event will be held at the Tweed Hungerford Agricultural Building November 29 to December 2. The theme for the 2012 Festival of Trees is “Through the Eyes of Children” and

takes the form of creatively decorated trees, wreaths and swags of various sizes. These are distributed to over 80 participating individuals and businesses in early summer, to be decorated in relation to the theme, or to the individual’s business, or whatever the decorator chooses, then returned for display at the event. Committee chairperson Barb Gunning suggests, “Creativity is what we are looking for.” Each piece is raffled off at the end of the Festival, and finds a new home for some lucky winner, all at a reasonable raffle ticket price of $2 which has not increased over the years. Homemade cookies, apple cider, and entertainment will also be featured at the Tweed

Festival of Trees, and tribute decorations that tie in with the theme of the Festival will be available for purchase in memory or honour of loved ones. Previous tribute decorations include snowflakes, stockings, and stars. Proceeds from the raffle have been dispersed to a number of youth groups and organizations in the municipality of Tweed. In the previous eight years since inception, the event has generated $95,920 in profits benefitting a wide variety of youth organizations such as Tweed Minor Hockey, Tweed Minor Softball, the Erin Palmateer Pool, the Gateway Horse Riders Association, Land O’ Lakes Curling Club, and Tweed Summer Youth The-

atre. Inasmuch as $15,000 was raised last year, organizers are confident that a

similar amount can be realized this year. As in the past, profits will be distributed to

enhance youth projects and activities within the municipality.

A Different Class Each Week! Agility, Rally Obedience, Scent Work, & Trick Training! Each Class is an “Introduction” to these Fun K9 Activities! Starting November 17th

With sunny smiles to match the afternoon sunshine pouring in, the Festival of Trees Steering Committee gathered to decorate the Christmas tree in the Bush Furniture showroom window.

EMC News - Madoc While many like it have closed their doors in recent years, a little book store in the village’s downtown continues to flourish while at the same time providing community support. The Bookworm has been providing readers, including regular customers who routinely travel an hour and more to shop there, with a seemingly endless supply of novels, biographies, best sellers and reference books since opening its doors there seven years ago. Operated and staffed by volunteers, including store co-ordinator Claudine Prosper, the store accepts donations on an ongoing basis selling titles, paperback or hardcover, for $1 or $2. And the profits, says Prosper, go back to the community. An extension of the Friends of the Library, she says, the Madoc Public Library is the chief benefactor of monies raised through the store, but there are other organizations who receive support as well. And last week, representatives from The Bookworm presented the Heart of Hastings Hospice House with a cheque for $2,500 following a previous donation of $3,000. “This is a really big deal,” says Hospice House fundraising committee member

Carm Donato of the $5,500 contribution, adding work is nearing completion on the house, purchased in Madoc and facilitated by fund-raising efforts that generated $240,000 in the first year, as preparations continue for the first arrival. While Heart of Hastings Hospice continues to offer in-home palliative care, Hospice House is intended as an option for patients in their last weeks of life unable to remain in their own homes. And for many, Donato says, it is a preferred option to hospitals but the choice is not always available in rural communities. “It’s very badly needed,” says Prosper, joined in the store by assistant Jennifer Bagshaw and Event Co-

ordinator Hazel Milner, and they agree a worthy cause for the book store’s generosity. But Prosper admits it is the generosity of others who ensure the books keep moving off the shelves and the doors stay open, putting the landlord at the top of the list. “The storefront is donated by Eric Hailstone,” she says. “Without him, we wouldn’t be able to do this.” With a dozen committed volunteers sharing the workload, store hours are from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. six days a week and book donations are always welcome. And with prices topping out at the $2 mark, business is often brisk. And all children’s books are 10 cents.

Marmora’s flag will fly in Alert in Nunavut

School fun fair was just that - FUN!

By Judy Backus

EMC News - Marmora - For the past three years, the Marmora Senior School community, has worked to put together a Harvest Fall Fun Fair in support of the purchase of SmartBoards for the classrooms. This year the fun filled event was held on the evening of November 8. No sooner had the doors opened when lineups formed, with all keen to purchase tickets to participate in a number of activities which ranged from face painting, putting, and hockey challenges, to a pop can toss game and bingo. There were also opportunities to have family photos taken, or, for those with artistic skills, a chance to decorate a hat or a cupcake. One table in the gym was filled with a wide selec- Makenna Jennings, Victoria Bailey, Lydia Carson-Maynes and Cassandra Hewitt prepare to tion of silent auction items, all of which test their putting skills during Marmora Senior School’s November 8 Harvest Fall Fun Fair.

It points to many opportunities relating to the potential growth in tourism, and will be used as a planning tool for future projects by the local Economic Development Committee. The report deals with such things as the need to develop a strong online presence, a re-examination of the Marmora and Lake Brand, the utilization of current assets for marketing purposes and, as well, looks at a number of specific changes and innovations. Among these are the promotion of geo-caching,

mother, Doris Franklin, owner of the house at 82 Madoc Street. He had attended council previously on the same matter, but explained that, as yet, no action had been taken. He told council members that at one time the house contained three apartments, but this was no longer the case as it was currently a single family dwelling housing six residents. The problem, explained by Vieau, was that in the case of water and sewer charges, the bill was based on three units rather than one. He stressed that it was no longer a three-unit place, but that the bill amounted to $500 every other month. Reeve Clemens responded that the report on hand indicated that it was a three-unit dwelling, but agreed that the matter required further investigation. Vieau offered to provide a letter signed by a lawyer indicating that it was in fact a single residence. Clemens said that staff would be asked to investigate the matter. Clemens told Vieaux that

EMC News - Marmora A press release, circulated at the November 6 council meeting, included a photo of Corporal Daren Lunn with a Marmora and Lake flag taken on a snowy October 26 in Nunavut. The accompanying information reads, “We are pleased to announce that the Marmora and Lake flag is flying high at the Canadian Forces Station Alert. CFS Alert is located on the northeastern tip of Ellesmere Island. It is located in the Qikiqtaaluk Region in Nunavut and it is the northernmost permanently inhabited place in the world. Very few communities are awarded the opportunity to have their flag flown this far north. The Municipality of Marmora and Lake would like to extend a sincere thanks to Corporal Daren Lunn for his help with this project!” Reeve Terry Clemens worked with Lunn’s father, Marmora resident Bryant Lunn, to orchestrate getting the flag to Alert. Over the course of a year, approximately 20 flags are raised at CFS Alert, and of those, only half are from towns and cities, so, as was pointed out by Deputy CAO, Typhany Choinard, “It is quite a privilege to have the opportunity.” • During his report, made at the outset of the meeting, Reeve Terry Clemens offered congratulations to Joanne Biggs, an employee in the environmental services department, who had recently completed the requirements to become a class one water and sewer treatment operator. • The only delegation was that of Paul Vieau, who appeared on behalf of his

Mr. Baehnor stated in his interview that the GOP will be nice if the Democrats will, admitting that they were

disgusting the last four years trying to roadblock any and all legislation regardless of the benefit to the citizens of that country. Their goal was to get the White House back in 2008 and thankfully they failed miserably. I can see a Democrat and new GOP coalition. In 2016 will there be three Presidential candidates, Democrat, new GOP and Tea Party. Doesn’t this bring back the pleasant memories of the Conservative Party and the Reform Party keeping Mr. Chretien in power as long as he was because separated they couldn’t get enough seats to matter. The good old GOP white boys club trying in earnest to subjugate women back to

the 1950s, taking care of the rich folk and never bothering to evolve themselves into a party that truly reflects the ethnical makeup of the USA has lost an election by clearly ignoring 70 per cent of its population. What did they think, that they would go along for the ride? Definitely the U.S. political news has become the area of interest to keep upto-date on. Good old boring Prime Minister Harper and the Conservatives who have made Canada probably the most successful country in the world continues to move us forward. Thank God I’m a Canadian living in Canada. Garry Hershberg, Havelock

Dear Editor, Your editorial really hit home with me. I have had these same thoughts and opinions. What a concept, actually asking straight questions and getting a straight answer in reply. I have had it up to here with politicians afraid to talk to the media, scientists muzzled and our elected representative told how to vote every time. I have a solution and it is to get Dean, Rick and Daryl

to sit as independents. All of a sudden they would get their power back. They would be courted by the rest and would be able to vote their conscience. Any politician with the guts to do it can count on our vote next time to get re-elected. Pretty soon other politicians might get some backbone and do the same. I’m convinced the party system is the problem. With enough independents they could

start to set the agenda and we would have our democracy back. The PM is just an elected representative from a riding just like ours. What makes him think he gets to act like a dictator. The time has come to take back some of that power. Let’s schedule a town hall meeting with our elected representative and get some real answers.

Dear Editor, A letter to Rick Norlock. I would like to receive a copy of the China-Canada Trade Agreement so I can read for myself its contents. Will this be debated in Parliament before it is signed?

Does the agreement have a 15-year notice to cancel this agreement clause? Is it true that a Chinese business can sue Canada if we do not allow that business to operate in Canada? In a related issue, is it true that American compa-

nies have successfully sued Canada for not earning the profits they forecast they would earn if they operated in Canada? Stuart Gilboord, A concerned Canadian citizen, Trenton

EMC News - Stirling - Police have been busy in recent weeks responding to numerous calls including highway concerns and complaints of student bullying. Police Chief Brain Foley says about 80 calls were received in the first two weeks of November including a request from the OPP for a spike belt needed to stop a pursuit. At

about 3 p.m. on November 3, Foley says, police involved in a pursuit entered the Township of Stirling-Rawdon, when the spike belt was requested. Stirling-Rawdon officers attended the area on Carmel Road where the driver of the vehicle being pursued exited the vehicle and fled on foot. It was moments later, he says, the OPP reported back that

the driver was in custody. After a trio of deer strikes in recent weeks, local police are also reminding drivers to be fully alert and observant when the animals are more active. Of seven collisions investigated recently, four involved animals. Police also responded to seven complaints of erratic drivers, three alarm calls and a 911 hang up.

EMC Editorial - In this interval of blessed tranquillity between the titanic struggle to choose the next president of the “world’s greatest nation” (same guy as last time), and the world-shaking choice of the next leader of the “Middle (Xi Jinping, Gwynne Dyer Kingdom” but it’s still officially secret for a few more days), a delicious moment of sheer silliness. The British Broadcasting Corporation has banned a science program because it might trigger an interstellar invasion. They would not normally ban a program made by Brian Cox. He is a jewel in the BBC’s crown: a particle physicist with rock-star appeal—he played in two semiprofessional bands, and in the right light he looks like a younger Steven Tyler— who can also communicate with ordinary human beings. They just forbade him to make the episode of Stargazing Live in which he planned to send a message to the aliens. Cox wanted to point the Jodrell Bank radio telescope at a recently discovered planet circling another star, in the hope of making contact with an alien civilisation. The BBC executives refused to let him do it, on the grounds that since no one knew what might happen, it could be in breach of “health and safety” guidelines. Cox, a serious scientist, knew exactly what would happen: nothing. Even if there are hostile aliens out there, space is so vast that light from the nearest star, travelling at 300,000 kilometres per second (186,000 miles per second), takes four years to reach us. He was just doing his bit in the centuries-long scientific campaign to convince people that they are not at the centre of everything. The BBC “suits,” who do think that they are at the centre of everything, weren’t having any of that. If there are aliens out there, and they find out we are here, their first reaction will probably be to come here and eat our children. And then the BBC will get blamed for it. Sorry, Brian. Drop the radio telescope and step away from it slowly. The suits richly deserve the derision that has come their way, but if there really is life elsewhere, and even perhaps intelligent life, then we aren’t at the centre of anything any more. We are, as Douglas Adams once put it in The Hitch-Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, “far out in the un-

charted backwaters of the unfashionable end of the western spiral arm of the Galaxy.” We used to believe that the whole universe literally revolved around us. Then came Copernicus. But we went on believing that we are very special. We look like other animals, but we are so special that we don’t cease to exist when we die. We give the universe meaning just by being alive A bit at the time, however, science has been destroying all of our traditional ideas about our own centrality. And here comes another blow. In a universe with trillions of stars, it was always less presumptuous to assume that we are not unique than to insist that we are. But just twenty years ago there was no evidence to show that other stars actually do have planets, let alone that some of those planets harbour life. We now know of the existence of some 800 “exoplanets,” and the number is doubling every year or so. Most of these planets are gas giants like Jupiter or Saturn, not at all like Earth, simply because the giants are easier to detect. But what we have really been looking for is planets like our own. We know that life thrives here. The astronomers at the European Southern Observatory in Chile have now found such a planet. It is called HD 40307g, and it orbits a small orange-coloured sun 42 light-years from here. The planet is rocky, like Earth, and it orbits its star at a distance where the temperature allows water to exist as a liquid. It is certainly a candidate for life. In the past decade we have learned that most stars have planets, and that they typically have lots of them. HD 40307 has six planets orbiting at different distances, at least one of which (HD40307g) is in the “Goldilocks” zone. There are between 200 billion and 400 billion stars in our home galaxy, the Milky Way, and probably at least as many planets. If only one in a hundred of those planets harbours life, which is likely to be an underestimate, then there are two billion living planets. We are not unique and special. We are as common as dirt. Douglas Adams also wrote: “If life is going to exist in a Universe of this size, then the one thing it cannot afford to have is a sense of proportion.” But we are gradually acquiring exactly that, and it doesn’t really hurt. It is possible to be aware of your own cosmic insignificance and still love your children. Even though they are without significance too.

Letter to the editor

Promoting propaganda

Dear Editor, In Mr. Dyer’s article “The one-state solution,” he continues his pattern of promoting the propaganda war against Israel which looks for any story line that could lead to the destruction of Israel as a Jewish state without commenting that the idea of one, non-Jewish state is the “Arabic” stated aim of the Palestinian side which differs from the “English” stated aim which is the “two state solution.” Mr. Dyer ignores the fact that Palestinians living in Israel as Israeli citizens have full rights. His comment to the contrary is a blatant lie. Mr. Dyer also ignores the possibility that Jews as citizens in a new state of Palestine could theoretically have the same rights as Palestinians living as citizens in Israel enjoy today. In regards to the issue of Palestinian refugees, Mr. Dyer continues to ignore the following inconvenient facts: 1 - After World War II, the British governors of Palestine, under International mandate promised that Jewish and Arab states would share the territory. In 1947 the UN approved a two-state partition, which the Jews accepted and the Arabs did not. On May 14, 1948, Israel declared independence. Immediately the armies of Egypt, Syria, Transjordan, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia and Iraq invaded. The secretary general of the Arab League, Abdul Rahman Hassan Azzam, had predicted this would be a massacre, “a war of elimination.” Soon Israel turned back the invaders and secured its territory (though

not all of Jerusalem.) 2 - In the 1948 war the Arab refugees were encouraged to leave Israel by Arab leaders promising to purge the land of Jews. Sixty-eight per cent left (many in fear of retaliation by their own brethren, the Arabs), without ever seeing an Israeli soldier. The ones who stayed were afforded the same peace, civility, and citizenship rights as everyone else. 3 - The number of Arab refugees who left Israel in 1948 is estimated to be around 630,000. The number of Jewish refugees from Arab lands is estimated to be the same. The Jewish refugees were forced to flee from Arab lands because of Arab brutality, persecution and pogroms. Arab refugees were intentionally not absorbed or integrated into the Arab lands to which they fled, despite the vast Arab territory. Out of the 100,000,000 refugees since World War II, theirs is the only refugee group in the world that has never been absorbed or integrated into their own people’s lands. Jewish refugees were completely absorbed into Israel, a country no larger than the state of New Jersey. The Palestinians can’t win the war using the Arab military, so the focus is on winning the propaganda war, and Mr. Dyer is a participant on the Palestinian side, whether he realizes it or not.

A little less notice please By Terry Bush

EMC Editorial - I can’t count the number of times people have emailed or phoned in September about an event happening in November. My usual response to their generosity in giving us lots of lead time is this, “Please let us know a week or two in advance. Otherwise we’ll forget about it or lose it in the hundred emails that come in every day.” As most of our reporters are middle-aged and by that I mean planning on living to a ripe old age of 115 or so, people need to realize there are all kinds of thoughts bouncing around in our craniums at any given time. A lifetime’s worth. Because there are so many things flying around in there, there’s a very good chance your event might not end up in a location where it’s readily accessible. It could end up being buried under a month’s worth of random thoughts. For that reason, I always write things down, especially after listening to lectures from my very organized wife and my mother before her. If either of them has a suggestion on how to find the notebooks and scrap pieces of paper I write things down on, I’d certainly love to hear it. The provincial government also needs to take this into consideration when they send out renewal forms for vehicle licence tags and driver’s licences. This year mine arrived the first week of October. While a man not redoing his driveway and lawn might have jumped right on that, I was not that man. The notices were put in a safe place, which to me means on the bed in the spare bedroom where it can serve as a reminder each time I dump a load of laundry on the bed to be folded. It’s a good system. However, my wife doesn’t share my enthusiasm for a hermit’s lifestyle and company sometimes comes calling. That means my filing system is relegated to a box, drawer or pile somewhere out of sight. If I don’t retrieve it as soon as company leaves, usually it’s lost. That’s what happened again this year, like so many others. Ruby Wallwork can attest to my dilemma. It became a running joke each year when she worked at the Licence Bureau in Stirling. I’d walk in and she’d wish me a happy birthday or belated happy birthday as she took my forms. She had a 95 per cent chance of being right. Ruby has since retired but I think I’ve found another kind soul with the same laid back approach. On Friday while heading home from work, I came upon a RIDE program and after a bit of small talk, the officer asked if I had a birthday coming up. “Why yes,” I said, as I figured out the officers were also looking at licence stickers and had seen mine as my truck pulled in. “Thanks for reminding me,” I said smiling. “That’s what we’re here for,” Jeff returned. “That’s what we’re here for!” Those words were music to my ears and there were two other officers on hand to serve as witnesses. This will really take the burden off me from here on in. If the OPP are there to remind me to purchase my licence stickers each year, that’s one less thing for me to worry about. Hopefully they’re not as forgetful as I am because that could cost me money. The next day I attempted to renew my licence but Service Ontario doesn’t seem to be open on Saturdays. Sunday was out for sure, so on Monday I let work know I’d be a little late coming in because I was running out of time and had to get this taken care of. Much to my chagrin, Service Ontario was once again out of service. Apparently even though Remembrance Day isn’t a holiday in this province, it’s a holiday for some. If the gigantic master computer isn’t online in the Big Smoke or wherever it’s located, there isn’t much chance that the little Service Ontario outlets can open for business. So now I have questions … as I always do. If Remembrance Day isn’t a holiday, then why do some provincial government type folks get to take Monday off for Remembrance Day when the day falls on a Sunday? For that matter, why does a bank that doesn’t open on Sunday get to close on Monday for a holiday that doesn’t exist. Same thing for Service Ontario. Even the schools were open on Monday and they’re closed for 90 days in any given year. In this day and age when most of us work and shop seven days per week, isn’t this a little silly? What’s even more ridiculous is the fact that Remembrance Day isn’t a holiday across the country. There are relatively few veterans left from World War II but given the recent deployments of our forces around the world, we certainly won’t lack for veterans in the immediate future. While the Harper government may be trying to brand itself as a promoter of Canada’s military heritage, given all the recent hoopla surrounding the War of 1812 and the renaming of our Armed Forces, this appears to be a provincial matter; a holiday in some provinces but not others. So Dalton, given that your legacy may have a certain odour about it in the years to come, why not make a last ditch effort to save some face by declaring November 11 a stat holiday. It’s not like the opposition parties are going to have a chance to block you, given the current state of affairs in Ontario. And chances are they won’t do anything when Queen’s Park gets back to business with an election around the corner. Wouldn’t it be great if everyone could attend Remembrance Day services instead of just a select few. Northeast EMC - Thursday, November 15, 2012

Madoc’s Silver Cross mother has military family By Diane Sherman

EMC News - Madoc - Madoc no longer has a Silver Cross mother. This year Patricia Miville was chosen to lay the wreath at Madoc’s cenotaph on Remembrance Day. Miville moved to the village in 1987. She has four children. Her daughter works in Belleville and her three sons are in military service. The eldest, George, is a submariner in the Canadian forces, David, the youngest, is with the U.S. navy, and Michael, at age fifty-four, is with the U.S. air force. Her parents William and Doris Harding were married in Wales in 1914 and moved to Minto, New Brunswick. Patricia was born in 1939. She knew military life from

an early age. Her father served in both world wars and her uncle in World War II. Her nephew was with the Black Watch. She told the EMC there are a total of ten relatives who chose military life, including three grandchildren. Patricia’s brother Glen was killed just before his 21st birthday while on deployment to Italy.

IF YOU WORK IN ONTARIO, THIS IS YOUR FIGHT. On September 11, 2012, the Ontario Liberal government passed Bill 115, the Putting Students First Act, 2012.

Bill 115 is undemocratic, unconstitutional, and unprecedented. • It takes away the democratic rights of teachers and education professionals to bargain collectively. • It places the government beyond the reach of the Ontario Human Rights Code, the Ontario Labour Relations Act, and even the courts. • It takes local decision-making away from school boards and puts it in the hands of the provincial government. That’s why we’re standing against Bill 115. It sets a dangerous precedent for all Ontarians. In fact, the government has already threatened other public sector workers with similar legislation. As teachers, we teach your children to stand up for their principles. Today, we ask you to do the same.

What can you do to help? Join us in standing up for democratic rights. Let your MPP know that Bill 115 must be repealed.

Much credit to the piano accompaniment for the evening, provided by Tom Dietzel. By times through the course of the evening, Katie shared the stage with others, as when her brother Tom joined her to sing several folk songs, her mandolin complementing his acoustic guitar. Kevin James Doe, who has been her best friend since they appeared together in the Leonard Bernstein musical Candide as undergrads at Queen’s, sang a duet with her from that production. A drama major there, and now a high school teacher in Toronto, his stage presence and dramatic talents were clearly in evidence as he went on to sing Maria, from Bernstein’s West Side Story, and On the Street Where You Live, from My Fair Lady. The LVB Strings returned to begin the second half of the concert, and played works by Bach, Rameau, and Handel. The evening’s performance ended too soon, as Katie’s evident joy of performing connected well with the appreciative audience, who responded with a welldeserved standing ovation. A lovely rendition of Danny Boy, as an encore, closed out the evening’s performance.

EMC Entertainment - Actinolite - A wide variety of musical taste buds were stimulated at the Marble Church Arts Centre in Actinolite Saturday night. Madoc native Katie Hinchliffe, together with musical friends, kept a near-capacity audience smiling for a thoroughly enjoyable evening. The entertainment began with chamber music, a concerto by Arcangelo Corelli, played by LVB Strings, a quintet from the Belleville area. As the gentle flow of melody filled the building, the listener could shut his eyes and be instantly transported to a 17th century ballroom, or imagine himself at a cathedral in Bath, England, on a starlit summer evening. This pleasant reverie ended when Katie came on stage to sing a Cole Porter piece about an ill-fated oyster, emphasis on the “ill.” This was a popular vaudevillian song, and was a key point of introduction to the singing part of the evening, as Katie’s cheery nature and bubbly personality were ever present. Now that the audience was fully back from dreamier venues, she demonstrated her extensive repertoire with further examples from a Spanish opera, from Mozart, and from a Gilbert and Sullivan operetta. Further vocal gems were

scenes, wildlife and people. As well there is his first painting, completed at the age of nine on a window blind showing a trio of dogs. It came as a result of his mother’s encouragement, he says, and her provision of the necessary paints. Also on display is one of the first paintings he ever sold, returned to him when the owner moved out of her home. It was a gift he gladly accepted. Since then Lawrence can only say he has completed hundreds of paintings inspired by images, many caught on film, that he has experienced over his lifetime. His subjects have come as a result of fishing and hunting expeditions, family gatherings and simple walks

in the woods, and every picture tells a story, he says. Lawrence, who was born and raised in Oshawa, is now retired and, along with his wife Pat, now calls Stirling home. And he notes that with her support as well, he has never lost the desire to paint or fully enjoy the outdoors. And many of the memories depicted on the walls are fully shared with her. “I’ve done everything,� he says of a working life that saw him earn a living as a lithographer, a bus driver, an arena manager and a trucker. But Lawrence’s artistic expression has remained a constant and he admits there are many pleasures derived from it and many memories contained within.

Often described as trench art, the pieces of cutlery, sugar bowls, engraved tongs and cake servers are made from shell casings, flattened and formed over hours and days and weeks, many featuring intact casings as handles. Those in display in Stirling were made by Belleville resident James Cordes in the trenches of Vimy Ridge. Cordes was a bugler from the 21st Battalion from 1914-1918. He died in 1984.

EMC News - Stirling Hundreds of parents, children, veterans, cadets, serving members of the Canadian Armed Forces, businesspeople, elected officials and community representatives crowded Mill Street on Sunday morning to remember those who served and died for their country. And as Remembrance Day services began on a warm and sunny November morning, dozens of Canada geese provided a brief but noisy flyover as crowds lined the sidewalks and bridges around the cenotaph. Although many schools held ceremonies on Friday for the students, many youngsters were in attendance with crowds in both Stirling and Harold significantly larger than previous years. Among those in attendance in Stirling were nearly 100 forces members currently stationed in Trenton and, says Royal Canadian Legion Branch 228 President George Jones, there is always significant support from residents south of the village as well as north. Following prayers for the fallen, the reading of the names of those lost and many moments of silence and reflection the Legion’s Colour Guard led a parade from the cenotaph, joined by service men and women, cadets and veterans. Under the direction of conductor Donna Bennett-Sporring, the Stirling Citizens Band provided a poignant contribution, performing during the ceremonies officiated by Legion Padre the Reverend Nancy Beale. In memory of those who gave their lives, wreaths were placed around the cenotaph by various representatives on behalf of area service clubs, organizations and individuals, as well as the three levels of government. Following the ceremonies in Stirling, a contingent of about 100 travelled north to the Harold Cenotaph for a second ceremony before returning to a packed Legion hall for lunch and socializing. Several displays were set up for visitors, showing medals, crests and photographs, as well as per-

EMC News - Marmora Inclement weather on a grey and ghostly night resulted in the annual Spooktacular, hosted by Marmora and Lake with input from members of the local youth committee, being relocated to the arena with wonderful results. Normally held at Memorial Park, the event took on an entirely new aura and a fittingly eerie one at that. Sharon Wheeler, Hogan Courier, Barb Davies and Typhany Choinard spread the word for Trick or Treaters to come to the Arena instead of Memorial Park, because of the inclement weather. John Croskery and Michael Brown created a fantastic Haunted House with eerie lighting, hanging objects and laughing ghosts. Members of the Youth Committee, Sarah Day, Kaitlin Murphy, Nathan Runions and Gordon O’Heir were assisted by Brandon Woods and Mitchell Montgomery to help hand out candy and scare passersby. A giant spider was suspended from the ceiling of the entranceway, scary music added to the atmosphere, and a sign warned all to enter at their own risk. Caution tape was in evidence, keeping revelers both young and adult on a course that led from one darkened dressing room to the next. Screams and shrieks, from children and parents alike, could be heard as ghouls jumped out from behind doors or in one room, arose from a coffin, making one wonder what awaited around the next corner. There was candy aplenty, with stops located throughout the thoroughly haunted area which for a time was inhabited by crowds of costumed kids out for fun on a rainy Hallowe’en night. One young reveler said upon exiting the trail, “That was awesome!” A nearby father was heard to say with enthusiasm, “That was fantastic!” By 7:30 the treats were all gone and everyone had had a Spooktacular Hallowe’en. Thank-you to everyone who helped or donated to make this event fun and enjoyable for the children.

The Marmora arena was decorated for the occasion, that being the annual Hallowe’en Spooktacular when costumed children of all ages enjoyed a bit of scary fun and an assortment of treats. From the left are: Curtis Trimble who handed out candy throughout the evening, Gage Julia, Daniel Mawer, Ted Julia, Stephanie Julia, Reese Wannamaker and Fern Julia. Photo: Judy Backus

Trick or Eat was a huge success EMC News - Marmora On Hallowe’en night, three years ago, a young man dressed as a hockey player knocked on a local door. Instead of asking for candy, he was requesting a donation of food for a food drive. The de Jong family thought it was a great idea and this year searched to find the organization that funded they program. Once they did, they joined in wholeheartedly. As Debbie de Jong writes, “Trick or Eat is a program of Meal Exchange, a national, youth driven charity. They educate youth on hunger issues in Canada and mobilize them to work in their communities. We registered ourselves as Kidz That Care and began our campaign. “We put posters up around town to let people know that we would be coming to their doors looking, not for candy, but for non-perishable food items. We met with Linda Pacaud of the Helping Hands Food Bank in Marmora, to introduce the Trick or Eat program. We received a tour of the food bank, learned how it was run and of their current needs. The day of October 31, we rehearsed what we would say, planned out our routes, asked for the Lord to bless our harvest and went out into the night. “Out goal was to collect 100 pounds of food to do-

Get protection from your creditors. Eliminate your debts.

Members of the de Jong family plus a few friends, put a new spin on Hallowe’en when they went door to door collecting, not the usual candy, but food for the local food bank.

nate. Marmora’s response was incredible. With only twelve of us covering just the east side of Marmora, we collected over 500 pounds of food, all of which will go directly to the Helping Hands Food Bank. “We are thrilled with the generosity of Marmora! We are all so excited to be able to supply the food to our community. We hope that we can get the word out to have more youth join us and double our efforts next year. We would also like to see campaigns organized in other surrounding villages.

There are other youth that would love to help out in their communities and participate in a fun event too! “We would like to thanks the community of Marmora for their donations and all the friendliness we received throughout the night (and even some candy to boot).” As Linda Pacaud, chair of the local food bank said, “The food was much needed and very appreciated. They did a lot of hard work and hopefully it grows next year.” Elinor White a volunteer at the food bank, added, “It was a very unselfish act.”

EMC News - On Saturday, November 3, St. John’s Anglican Church in Stirling held its first annual rock-a-thon “Rock for Jesus.” They hope this will be the beginning of the yearly time of fellowship and fun. Ten ladies from St. John’s gathered in the parish hall, with their rocking chairs to begin a two-hour event. Not only did they rock to raise money to offset some of the church’s expenses, but they rocked in celebration of their partnership in faith with their parish family. The music was selected by Helen Wright and she had everyone rocking and dancing to musical selections from the world of country to soul. From the age of 12 and up it was a joyful time for all the ladies who participated and to all the folks who sponsored our endeavours, thank-you. Photo: Submitted

timate and less formal space than the theatre’s main stage. And it might get loud. The upstairs hall, which includes a bar and plenty of room for different configurations of tables and chairs, seats about 100 people with potential for several types of performances. And on the impetus of one local musician, the wheels started in motion to make a little noise about local talent.

R0011744852

EMC Entertainment Stirling - It is a new idea for the Stirling Festival Theatre and organizers of an upcoming musical performance upstairs in the Eugene Burrell Hall are preparing for a slightly different audience. And hopes are high that a new performance venue has been created to showcase a range of local talents in an in-

Local rock band New Age Soldier, along with Ottawabased My Favourite Tragedy, will be performing on November 17 after a series of successful shows together that included September’s Centre Hastings Rocks concert at the skatepark. The brainchild of Madoc-based Aaron Beals, the three-band live outdoor event warranted some sort of return engagement, he says, and members of My Favourite Tragedy were happy to oblige. And in November, he says, a smaller space indoors is the only way to go. “We’ve done a few shows together now,” Beals says of New Age Soldier, which includes Belleville’s Kris Tischbein and Stirling-area resident Brad Thompson, and My

Favourite Tragedy. And he admits their different styles are also perfectly complementary with each offering a very different but highly energetic show. Beals and New Age Soldier are all electric, offering a range of original material as well as a few covers, while My Favourite Tragedy offers a more acoustic sound with frontman North Easton joined by standup bass player John Demarais and drummer Phil Demarais. And the space at the Stirling theatre should be a perfect fit. Beals says the bands will have copies of their CDs available as well as T-shirts and other merchandise and, while the bar will be open, it is an all ages event with mu-

sic, he says, that should appeal to a broad range of age groups and musical tastes. “We’re really excited about this,” Beals says of the Stirling show, noting it will come on the heels of a November 10 date in Ottawa where the two

bands will again share the bill. Tickets, priced at $15, and complete show information are available at the box office or by contacting Aaron Beals at <aaron.beals@hotmail. com> or by calling the theatre at 613-395-2100.

Atom Grizzlies advance to the International Silver Stick EMC Sports - The Centre Hastings Atom Grizzlies travelled to Pembroke for the 2012 Pembroke Regional Silver Stick over the weekend. In the first game they matched up against the Muskrat Voyageurs. Although the Grizzlies had not found their stride after the long drive, they did come away with the win by a 3 - 1 score. Karsten Leonard had two goals while Ben Portt had a goal and an assist. The Grizzlies next game was at 7 a.m. Saturday versus the Norwood Hornets. The Hornets looked to exact some revenge from a previous loss against the Grizzlies but the Grizzlies proved to be too strong taking the game with a 7 - 1 final score. Karsten Leonard dominated, scoring five of the Grizzlies’ seven goals. Maerek Skalba scored two goals and added an assist while Jack Sandford added an assist and Colby Laviolette provided five helpers. The Grizzlies’ final game of the round-robin was against the East Nipissing Vipers. The Grizzlies once again proved to be too strong and finished the round-robin play with a 5 - 2 victory. Goal scorers were Karsten Leonard, Maerek Skalba, Treyton Finch and Colby Laviolette. This set the Grizzlies up for a semi-final match versus the Valley Storm. The Grizzlies dominated the game winning 5 - 0 with Owen McMaster earning a shutout. Goal scorers were Liam McTaggart (2) and an assist, Treyton Finch and two assists, Karsten Leonard, Curtis Dicks and assists

went to Jack Oke (3), Colby Laviolette, Maerek Skalba, Kobe Dostaler and Jacob Kennedy. This set the Grizzlies up for the championship game

against the Tweed Hawks. The Grizzlies once again dominated the play. The aggressive forechecking of Treyton Finch and Jack Oke kept the Hawks pinned in

their end and tired them out. Karsten Leonard continued his outstanding performance netting three goals and adding a helper in a convincing 6 - 1 victory. The other goal scorers were Laviolette, Finch and Skalba with Oke and Dicks providing assists. The Grizzlies’ outstanding team play earned them a perfect record for the tournament and the Pembroke Regional Silver Stick Championship. The Grizzlies now will advance to the International Silver Stick Championship in Forest in January. The Grizzlies would like to thank the Pembroke Regional Stick organizers for hosting a great tournament as well as their fans and family for their support.

The goal scorers were Cameron Forsetell (2), Kevin Clarke, Carter Cassidy and Ben Bailey with assists from Carson Ellis, Logan Richardson, Neil O’Connor and Nick Smith.

The win set the Grizzlies up with a “B” Championship Final game against the Stirling Blues. It turned out to be a battle between two very evenly matched teams, but the Grizzlies prevailed with a score of 4 - 3. Goals from Neil O’Connor, Kevin Clarke (2) and Nick Smith put the Grizzlies on top with assists from Ben Bailey, Logan Richardson and Cameron Forestell. Jayden Schirmers

EMC News - Quinte West “The most important reason we are here is for the families,” said Mayor John Williams at the dedication of the Afghanistan Repatriation Memorial on November 10. “We are fortunate to have many of the families here today.” He thanked Don Cherry for showing up with his daughter and for all his support of the military. He noted that the CAV, military, fire, police, 413 Wing and Trenton Citizens Band were also participants. Williams said the idea for a memorial came from former MPP Hugh O’Neil

who wanted some way to remember the fallen soldiers who were repatriated at CFB Trenton and joined the Highway of Heroes on their journey to Toronto. He also thanked Pete Fisher for the naming of that highway, and to all those who stood along the fences and bridges on that route. “Canadians support Canadians,” he said. Dave Devall acting as emcee reminded them that donations are still needed to pay for the $1.2 million memorial that is unique across the country and paid for by contributions of Canadians; there was no government funding. Federal Minister of Veterans Affairs the Honourable Steven Blaney said it was all about caring about Canadians. “We have not forgotten,” he said. “This memorial is a testament to the fallen and their families for whom life has changed forever: an empty room, an empty chair, a void in their life.” Ontario Minister of Finance the Honourable Dwight Duncan said this is an ideal setting on the Bay of Quinte, not far from the repatriations. “We honour them this day and every day,” he said. Afghanistan ambassador to Canada His Excellence Barna Karimi, said he has always

1

wanted to meet the families of Canadians who lost their lives in Afghanistan. He said the people of Afghanistan remember the Canadians who brought them relative peace and freedom and a better life. Also nine million kids now go to school, there is access to health care and services and roads and they don’t live in fear of terrorists. Karimi said they also lost a lot of lives in Afghanistan, in the thousands, but today it is a better place because of the efforts of Canadians. Major General Vance, Director of Staff, Strategic Joint Staff, commended the Canadians for their courage and dedication in the face of adversity. Kathy Bulger, mother of fallen soldier Corporal Nick Bulger, spoke on behalf of the families. She thanked the community for its amazing accomplishment and said the park was a place to come and reflect and hopefully find peace and tranquility. She said she will bring Nick’s girls here and reflect on what a great man their daddy was. Issam Massough, brother of fallen soldier WO Hani Massough, said he had talked to his brother about going to Afghanistan and he said it was making a difference. A dedication and blessing was offered by Major ReverPlease see “Canadians” on page B4

Presqu’ile Bay group ready to help By Ray Yurkowski

EMC News - Brighton - A local group, created to pursue environmental concerns at Presqu’ile Bay, are asking municipal council if the letter is in the mail. At their October 15

meeting, council unanimously approved a motion to draft a letter addressed to provincial and federal departments asking for a program to assess the environmental status of the bay as well as launching an

ongoing monitoring program. “Presqu’ile Bay is to Brighton what the Great Lakes are to Ontario,” said Councillor John Martinello, in his report at that meeting. “In order to protect and

improve the water quality, it is necessary to know its current condition.” “In June 2012, the Province of Ontario released its draft Great Lakes Strategy and that 63-page document very much speaks to the

need to protect the Great Lakes and the need to protect marshland such as Presqu’ile Bay. I think now is an opportune time to get this issue on the Government of Ontario’s radar.” “I think we can all concede the water quality in Brighton bay is unacceptable,” added Kerr. “But I don’t think we should be holding back on doing something until the results of that testing comes through. The motion should further extend to recommending some sort of an action plan modelled on the Bay of Quinte Remedial Action Plan and several others that are available.” “It would be very worthwhile for a non-profit group to be formed because that group can find funding, they Have you read one of our stories...

can encourage and be the champions to get something done to fix the problems that go on,” suggested Kerr. “This letter is from that group,” says group representative, University of Western Ontario biology professor emeritus Roger Green, in a letter to municipal council. “One purpose is to say the group does exist and meets regularly. “We currently have five members with two more expressing interest and another suggested as an appropriate addition, and we already have diverse experience and expertise: long-time Brightonians and professional experience in hydrography and environmental studies. If our group can help in any way, please contact us.” The letter has been mailed, says municipal CAO Gayle Frost. Dated October 30, copies were sent to federal representatives MP Rick Norlock, Fisheries and Oceans Minister Keith Ashfield and Environment Canada Minister Peter Kent along with, on the provincial side, MPP Rob Milligan, Natural Resources Minister Michael Gravelle and Environment Minister Jim Bradley. Presqu’ile Bay “is going downhill and it’s getting pretty bad,” said Green, in an interview this week. Email Roger Green at <rgreen@uwo.ca> for more information on the group.

Codrington gravel pit decision headed to OMB EMC News - Brighton CBM Aggregates, a division of St. Marys Cement Group, has filed a “friendly appeal” because of municipal council failure to make a decision on an application for an amendment to the zoning bylaw. In a letter to the municipality, CBM land and resources director Melanie Horton calls the action a “friendly appeal” and they “continue to be committed to working with the municipality in an attempt to resolve outstanding issues.” “We are making the appeal at this time so that all of the matters associated with the CBM Codrington Pit may be consolidated into a single hearing at the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB),” she wrote. “There are three things going on at the same time when we deal with most gravel pits,” explained mu-

nicipal planning director Ken Hurford at last week’s council meeting. “CBM has an application in front of the Ministry of Natural Resources [MNR] for an aggregate resources licence; they have an application before the municipality for an amendment to the Official Plan [endorsed by council in December 2011] and an application before the municipality for a zoning bylaw amendment.” “This was going to the OMB no matter what,” he added. “There was an appeal of the Official Plan amendment and there are [about two dozen] outstanding objectors to the request for an aggregate licence. Whatever decision this council made, whether to enact the zoning bylaw or defeat it, that decision would have been appealed to the OMB by one party or another. “The OMB can pull all

of these files together. They don’t consider them all separately because they all relate to each other.” “Has the municipality done anything wrong?” wondered Mayor Mark Walas. “No,” said Hurford.“We’ve been working through a process with CBM—at the consultant level, at the lawyer level, at the planner level—to hash through all these concerns and make sure they are taking the steps they need to take to satisfy this council and the citizens of Brighton and to make sure we’re doing everything we can to protect our interests if this was to proceed. “As of today, [CBM] hasn’t done everything we wanted and that is why we have not brought something before this council. Our solicitor and myself have been very firm; we’re not prepared to put something in front of council and, frankly, waste

our time, on something that is not what the expectation was coming out of the meeting last December.” “That wouldn’t sit well with the OMB,” added Hurford. “To be told that the municipality had certain expectations and those expectations weren’t addressed. The OMB would not look kindly on making it hard for council to make a final decision.” “This is certainly a reaffirmation as to why I voted against the whole situation in the first place,” said Deputy-mayor Tom Rittwage. “When we sat in front of the folks from CBM, they told us all the wonderful things they were going to do and what this tells me is people be damned in Codrington; we’re just going to push and do things the way we want.” CBM filed applications for a sand and gravel pit licence at a 105-hectare (259-acre)

site on Ferguson Hill Road in 2009. Although the actual area of extraction is proposed on only 80 hectares

(198 acres), CBM expects to extract 14 million tonnes of aggregate over approximately 30 years.

This memorial is dedicated to the 158 men who laid down their lives and now have the love and support of the nation. Cadets read off the names of those 158 soldiers, each marked by the ringing of a bell. The monument was unveiled and wreaths were laid in front of them.

LIFESTYLES

Reality Check: EMC Lifestyles - Last week, as I was driving home from a Remembrance Day service, I saw a house with a Christmas tree proudly perched in the bay window. Christmas. In November. My first instinct was to get grumpy. I hadn’t planned on thinking about Christmas until the slush hit and the malls became impenetrable. But then it occurred to me, if this family has their Christmas tree up this early, they must really love Christmas. They must be excited, and happy, and ready to spread the cheer. Perhaps we need more of those kinds of people. A little excitement and happiness is awfully contagious. When I’m barrel-

A contagious smile

ling into a store, and someone holds the door open, smiles and offers, “Have a great day!” it makes me smile, too. This wouldn’t surprise psychologists, who know that our social interactions are largely influenced by “mirror neurons” in the brain. These neurons stimulate what the other person is feeling. If we see someone smiling, our mirror neurons will stimulate us toward happiness, and then we’ll smile back. You’ve probably noticed this already when it comes to yawning. Yawning is actually the most contagious thing in the world, scientists say. Even the fact that you read the word “yawn” in this column is probably making

you want to yawn. Many of you already have. Smiling isn’t quite as contagious, but it is on the same plane. It seems we humans are hard-wired for empathy, and so unconsciously we like to mimic those we’re with in order to produce a closer bond. If we naturally mimic people, then, it’s probably best to hang out with people who are worth mimicking. Find positive people, not negative people. When I talk with someone for an hour or two about everything that’s wrong with everyone else, I leave that conversation rather critical. When I talk for an hour or two with someone who’s enthusiastic about life, I tend to pick up on their enthusiasm.

you need to take a shower afterward? Find another hobby. We need to watch who and what we let influence us. But what’s really interesting is that we can start that chain in motion ourselves. If we smile and say positive things, others will respond. Instead of participating in a “here’s all the ways men are useless” conversation, for instance, you could launch your own “here’s what I love about guys.” Or instead of joining the “here’s why society is going downhill,” you could start, “here’s what I really love about kids these days.” Maybe if we started noticing the positive, rather than the negative, we’d start a chain of grati-

O&S #3: Once the ground freezes, you can cover up some tender perennials and woody perennials with dried leaves; you should have a bag or two of them lying about. If you don’t, take a stroll down the street and scarf up a few from the curbside. O&S #4: Clean up and repair gardening tools as you put them away. At the same time, get out the snow clearing implements and have them ready. Make a note as to which tools you really used and enjoyed using and put them on your Christmas shopping list for friends.

O&S #5: Plant bulbs now. A fall bulb is one you plant in the fall. It will flower in the spring. A spring bulb is one you plant in the spring to get a summer bloom. Bulbs need time to settle in and get some roots growing before the cold shuts everything down. Get big bulbs if you want flowers: purchase little bulbs (relative to genus) if you want to save money and grow leaves. Find sunny spots; plant in odd numbers; I like to make as big a grouping as my budget allows; solid plantings make a better show than a hodgepodge; feed them in the spring, plan on replacing them after their second season of flowering; take pictures when they bloom; draw a map when you plant them; and, plant one for you, one for Gaia and one for Mr. Squirrel. O&S #6: Dissatisfaction is hereby formally expressed to landscape suppliers and municipal councils who don’t “protect” their local tradespeople. Let me illustrate the supplier side of the issue by using paver stones as an example; I could just as easily use fertiliser, bulk soil or grass seed. LKG is a fictional company that produces pavers. LKG will have depots or suppliers located in the area from which local trades people purchase. LKB and LKD, fictional paver installers, pay the same price to LKG. Their competitive advan-

Cannifton garage

tage is tied into each company’s expertise and not the price of the product. I view this as fair. What is not fair is when fictional company FDW from the Big Smoke can come in and charge the end user (homeowner) a lower price for the pavers because LKG charged them less. If FDW can purchase pavers in the big city and truck them way out here to the hinterlands cheaper than LKG sells to the locals, there is something wrong. Pure capitalists will say, “So it goes, eh.” And they would be right, so goes the money paid by the homeowner, so goes the money earned by the out-of-town installers, so goes the jobs of the local trades people. By the way, fictional companies LKB and LKD no longer purchase products from LKG. In terms of municipal contracts and awarding of tenders, the same reasoning applies. Local business employs local residents, pays taxes to the municipality and the money earned is spent in the municipality. Another aspect of this is unfair ill-will directed to the organisation occupying the tendered edifice. One example, fictional of course, involves an agency supported by public funds. (Gentle Reader and Municipal Mugwumps: pick a town, any town and you can make an argument for many a tendered project. Idiosyncrasies aside, most of you Mugwump types are good sorts honestly do-

ing the best you can do for your constituents.) Most of the tenders were awarded out-of-town; there was nothing exceptional about this project in that the expertise required to construct it is readily available in the area. The fictional agency occupying said fictional building is soliciting ongoing community support as is normal for them. Some of the local businesses shunned in the bidding process find it difficult to get on board. Final outcome, wages earned by the construction are taken out of town, revenue earned by winning tender is taken out of town, the jobs created by the local contract are taken by out of town, taxes collected from local workers shrink as workers go out of town looking for jobs and disaffection with councillors is unfairly shown in lower donations to the agency. Awarding contracts and tenders to the lowest bidder (I’ll modify that by saying “the bidder with the lowest bid coupled with a perceived ability to best complete the job satisfactorily.” Sometimes companies bid on projects outside of their capability or expertise and their bid is unreasonably low) isn’t always the best course of action. I know that any councillor who can defend awarding a bid to a local company, even though it might not have been the lowest offered, will have my support come election time.

My favourite interpretation, told to me by my guide, was that a young male lover left this footprint when he frantically jumped from the castle upon the sudden arrival of his girlfriend’s dad. He continued down into the valley, but later returned. Dad eventually allowed them to marry and they lived happily ever after. If a visitor steps into this footstep today, then

He became the keeper of the great wine vat, and an unofficial city mascot, and his nickname of “Perkeo” stuck because he was often offered wine and would usually respond, in Italian, with “Perche no?” (“Why not?”). His reputation as an excessive wine drinker continued for many years, but the story goes that one day he felt sick and decided to drink some water instead, and then he died the very next day!

the Powder Tower, with its extremely thick walls that were designed for the storage of gunpowder, but much of it was destroyed by Louis XIV and remains in ruins today. I also saw the impressive Gate Tower, the only tower to basically “survive” the many sieges, where an enormous iron ring on one of the wooden gates was used as a door knocker. Legend has it that anyone who could bite through this ring would be given the castle, and apparently a witch tried to do so but left only a tooth mark (still visible) when she tried! I also visited the “Schlosshof” (Castle Courtyard), where I saw the Friedrich Building, adorned with statues of Friedrich IV and his ancestors; the Otto Heinrich Building, which is the castle’s most imposing structure and its cellar houses the “German Pharmacy Museum,” with its incredible collection of pharmacists’ utensils through the ages; and the King’s Hall which houses the Great Barrel, the largest wooden wine barrel in the world. My exploration of this Great Barrel, which can hold 220,000 litres, included ascending some steps to a dance floor atop the actual barrel, going out onto the castle terrace for a view of

EMC Lifestyles - I received an email from the German National Tourist Board, <www.germany.travel>, informing me of the results of its 2012 survey to find out what visitors considered to be the “Top 100 Tourist Attractions in Germany,” and the winner, the #1 selection, was the Heidelberg Castle. Many believe this to be “the most beautiful ruin of all,” for it has been uninhabitable since the 16th century, when it was struck by lightning and burned. Prior to that, it had been the residence of most of the Prince Electors. Yet this impressive historic landmark still dominates the cityscape, for it towers high above the Old Town and the Neckar River and offers visitors a breathtaking view. Popular American writer Mark Twain visited Heidelberg and its castle back in the 19th century, and he fell in love with both—and even seemed to foreshadow the result of this recent survey. In his book, A Tramp Abroad, published in 1880, Twain wrote “a ruin must be rightly situated to be effective. This one could not have been better placed.” I visited the Heidelberg Castle on my most recent trip to Europe, and I even had the good fortune to be there for its “Heidelberg Castle Illumination.” This spectacular event, which attracts thousands of tourists, takes place three times a year (on the first Saturday in June and September and on the second Saturday in July), and I joined the crowds that lined the river banks and the nearby bridges to enjoy the free “light show.” At about 10 p.m., the entire castle, which had been enveloped by the darkness, was suddenly and spectacularly bathed in red lights, almost as if on fire. This represented the three burnings of the castle (in 1689 and 1693, as a result of wars with the French, and in 1764, as a result of lightning) and then this was followed by a magnificent fireworks display, launched from the Old Bridge (which continued for about 15 minutes). What a sight! I, of course, also took a daytime tour of the castle, arriving via the funicular and I discovered that not only the view looking up toward the castle was magnificent, but that the view of Heidelberg, looking down from the castle’s gardens or its Great Terrace, was also spectacular. I walked through the Elizabeth Gate, said to have been erected overnight as a 19th birthday present for Elizabeth by her husband, Frederick V and soon found myself staring at the partially collapsed Prison Tower; I was told prisoners were lowered by rope into their cell, for the only entrance/exit was at the top. Just to the east of this was

Mad Hatters and Cheshire cats at SFT

By Richard Turtle

EMC Entertainment Stirling - The cast and crew of the upcoming Christmas Panto began preparations for a trip down the rabbit hole this week with Alice in Wonderland opening at the end of the month at the Stirling Festival Theatre. Director David Vanderlip says the annual show will be another zany and madcap look at a well-known children’s story and as usual the upcoming production is more than simple child’s play. With about 30 shows slated before closing night on New Year’s Eve, and both family and naughty versions to nail down in the next two weeks, cast members were eager to begin as the group descended on the theatre’s Eugene Burrell Hall for a read through Monday morning. Cast members include several returning SFT favourites including J.P Baldwin, Dean Hollin, and Debbie Collins who play the Cheshire Cat, Alice’s mother Lacie, and the Queen of Hearts respectively. And after playing the villain in last year’s Puss in Boots, Hollin says, he’s looking forward to taking on the role of the dame in this year’s offering. Other cast members include Kristi Frank, Michael Hogeveen, Larenne Vine and Ryan Whittal. Written by SFT regular Ken MacDougall, Alice in Wonderland, promises plenty of laughs along with a variety of twists and turns unique to the Stirling telling of a familiar story. Along with writing and directing last year’s Puss in Boots, MacDougall has also been involved in several previous SFT productions as well as appearing on stages across Canada and on television. The play opens on Wednesday, November 28, at 2 p.m. with evening and matinee shows scheduled throughout the month of December. Family versions will be presented opening night at 8 p.m. and in matinee performances (2 p.m.) on December 9, 15, 22, 26, 29 and December 31. Performances of the naughty version will be held November 29, December 1, 2, 7, 8, 9, 12, 14, 15, 19, 20, 21, 22, 26, 28, 29, 30. And as usual, set builders and costume designers will have plenty of work ahead in the coming weeks, creating a fantasy world on the SFT stage. Complete with a mas-

EMC News - Quinte West - A representative from MPAC, the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation, will be at next Monday’s council meeting, November 19, at 6:30 p.m. “There are concerns about the farm tax,” notes Terry Cassidy. “Are the assessment notices out yet?” David Clazie, director of Corporate and Financial Services, said the notices are being staggered throughout the province, starting in southwestern

Ontario. “There are substantial increases in farm assessments,” he said. Clazie said the local assessments should be here starting on Friday, November 16. Cassidy had concerns the representatives from MPAC were coming too late. “People need someone to translate the impact this will have on their taxes,” he said. “We need to help the taxpayers.” Clazie said the representative will discuss how much of an increase there will be in the different

categories. Don Kuntze asked if there will be any notification on the city web site. Clazie said yes, along with updates through social media. This fall, all property owners in Ontario will receive a Property Assessment Notice with the updated assessed value of their property as of January 1, 2012. All property in Ontario is assessed once every four years by MPAC. Each property is assessed based on what a willing buyer would pay a willing seller for the property on a legislated valuation date. To help provide an additional level of property tax stability and predictability, the Ontario Government has introduced a phase-in program where market increases in assessed value between January 1, 2008, and January 1, 2012, will be phased in over four years (20132016). The full benefit of a decrease is applied immediately. To establish your property’s assessed value, MPAC analyzes property sales in your community. This method is called Current Value Assessment. It is used by most assessment jurisdictions in Canada and throughout the world. In addition to sales, they look at the key features of every property. As many as 200 factors are considered when assessing the value of a residential property. Five major factors usually account for 85 per cent of the value: location; lot dimensions; living area; age of the property, adjusted for any major renovations or additions; and quality of construction. Other features that may affect value include: number of bathrooms, fireplaces, garages, pools, whether properties have water frontage, and so on. They analyze the key features of your property with sales of comparable properties in your community to determine your assessment. We are in Region #6: Hastings County, Northumberland County, City of Prince Edward County The Municipal Property Assessment Corporation office is at 5 Creswell Drive, P.O. Box 520, Trenton, Ontario K8V 5R7. Hours for MPAC’s tollfree customer service: 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Friday. Call 1-866-296MPAC (6722). Have you read one of our stories... Agree? Disagree?

ship continued the assault by running over the lifeboats and machine-gunning the helpless survivors, which included 14 Nursing Sisters. Unfortunately, Dr. Sills was not on the one lifeboat which was able to escape this further atrocity. According to the archived report, “The Llandovery Castle became the rallying cry for the Canadian troops during the Last 100 Days offensive.” Additional documentation concerning this story has been researched by local resident Martin (Dutch) Vermeer. A former member of the Military Police, Vermeer has access to a greater range of historical material than the general public, and has, for several decades, been completing files on Hastings County residents who served in the armed forces. Vermeer has determined that the captain of that German gunboat was tried for war crimes and found guilty in the Leipzig Assizes. Despite the death sentence given, he apparently did not even serve a jail sentence, but re-appeared at an even higher rank in the German navy in the 1930s. In addition to the current display at the gallery, there is another room at the Heritage Centre which is permanently dedicated to the memory of this area’s military personnel. One wall of this room is almost completely covered by photographs of those who did not return alive from their tour of duty. Thanks to Evan

Morton, curator, for dedicating this room permanently to such a worthy purpose. Thanks, also, to Dutch Vermeer for his efforts to keep the memories of these people, and their stories, alive.

Posters, paintings, photographs, and various memorabilia collections relating to the two World Wars are on display. Special attention is drawn to the contributions of the residents of Hastings County. This is where stories from those times come to life. One such story concerns the life and tragic passing of George Luther Sills, who died June 27, 1918. Son of S. Wilson Sills, a carpenter, and Elizabeth Jane Sills, of River Street, Tweed, he was enrolled at Queen’s University in Kingston before enlisting at the outbreak of war. He was assigned to duties as a medical orderly at a hospital in Egypt. At the end of this assignment, he returned to Queen’s to complete his studies and become a doctor, at which time he re-enlisted. Documentation of this reenlistment confirms that Dr. Sills’ rank was that of Captain in the Canadian Army Medical Corps. While proceeding from Halifax to Liverpool, the ship he was on was deliberately torpedoed by a German gun boat, despite the fact that the Llandovery Castle was well-marked via Red Cross lights as a hospital ship. Though most of the personnel aboard were able to escape to lifeboats, the German

I checked in

Kelly Trotter (centre) is currently fighting breast cancer but she has some staunch allies in college students Kara Bonnin (left) and Lindsay Bartley. Their pink and black T-shirts are hot sellers in Madoc, where they have vowed to support breast cancer, one rack at a time.

they admit there are several special reasons for making the trip home. And one of them is named Kelly Trotter. “She’s been like a mom to us,” Bartley says, including enduring the teenage antics of the girls alongside Trotter’s sons Dylan and Hunter and others as they got into their share of trouble but stayed out of most of it. So when the students learned the news that Trotter had been diagnosed with breast cancer, “we knew we had to do something,” Bartley says. With the help of friend Pete Gooderham, they came up with a design they all liked and decisions about orders

were suddenly being made. Antlers on either side of a pink ribbon state, Supporting Breast Cancer … One Rack at a Time. The ribbon reads: Save Our Rack. “We had no idea how many we’d sell,” Bartley says, but the first order of 80 sold out in a hurry. A further 100 now on order are already sold so further orders are pending. And Bartley and Bonnin have been racking up sales in their new home cities as well. Their Facebook page has had several responses, including from hunters, and updates will be posted regularly. “We want to sell as many as we can before Christmas,” Bartley says, noting of the

$25 purchase price, about half is destined for breast cancer research. When orders arrive, shirts will be available at Madoc Co-op, Madoc Complete Denture and several other local businesses. Trotter, who was diagnosed in September and has since undergone a pair of surgeries, says she now faces six months of chemo and then more surgery. Her outlook remains entirely positive and the support, she says, is immeasurable. And she admits there is something truly gratifying in seeing your children and their peers assume an unexpected level of responsibility and take a little action … without being asked.

In loving memory of a dear mother and grandmother who passed away Nov. 20, 2010. Two years have passed already since you were taken away. It broke our hearts to lose you that November day.

Remembering you is easy I do it every day. But missing you is a heartache that never goes away. Our family chain is broken but the love and memories your family has will last eternally, till we meet again some day. So dearly missed and loved, Charlene, Mike, Hailey & Emma
