CHRISTMAS JOURNEY At the end of the hour-long parade in Madoc, Santa Claus offered his Christmas wishes to the crowds. The parade was held last Saturday.

EMC News - Madoc - The streets were lined with spectators, bundled up for the weather, last Saturday evening as the Royal Canadian Legion’s colour party led the community’s Santa Claus Parade through the downtown streets. With plenty of representation from local organizations and groups, including the RCSCC Quinte marching band, Stirling Citizens Band, Girl Guides, Camp Quin-Mo-Lac, Madoc School of Dance Arts, the O’Hara Mill Homestead, Centre Hastings council and staff as well as local firefighters and other clubs and businesses, there was an abundance of light and colour. Mickey and Minnie Mouse were there, along with a giant rabbit, Sparky the fire dog and some real live horses. And even the pets weren’t forgotten, with residents reminded of the contest to name Madoc’s Off-Leash Dog Park. And while there was a chill in the air, many spectators were warmed by thoughts of family, friends and the imminent late-night arrival of Santa Claus. Please see “Madoc” on page 2

EMC News - Marmora During the November 20 council meeting, Reeve Terry Clemens moved to declare the month of January as Crime Stoppers’ Month in the municipality, citing the good work done by the organization and in recognition of the citizens who help. A recommendation from Deputy CAO Typhany Choinard met with the unanimous approval of council, that being to support the appointment of Mike Pettler to the municipality’s Economic Development Committee. Pettler has been attending the meetings for some time,

but not as a voting member. In her recommendation to council, Choinard noted, “The Marmora and Lake Economic Development Committee is seeking to recruit new members to support their goals.” In looking at a list of proposed meeting dates for the coming year, Deputy-reeve Rita Cimprich, noticed a time conflict with regard to the August 6 meeting which was scheduled to be held in Dickey Lake. She told council that the Shawano Ratepayers’ meeting was taking place the same day, suggesting that the following week would be a better choice for council to hold

its yearly northern meeting as it would be nice to “see a full docket at Dickey Lake.” Council members agreed and the date has been changed to August 13. With the holiday season approaching, it was decided that the municipal office would be closed as recommended, from December 24 to January 1. During the presentation of committee reports, Councillor Elaine Jones mentioned the fact that the very involved youth committee would be holding their next meeting on November 27. This prompted a comment from Councillor Linda Bracken who had helped

with the chaperoning of a recent teen dance, who said what an active role committee members had taken, adding that they were a strong committee and one that all should be proud of. Under the heading of correspondence out, reference was made to two letters sent. The first was a thank-you to Lucas Wales, for his efforts regarding the Marmora and Lake Marketing Plan and the second, to Daren Lunn who was involved with having the Marmora and Lake flag fly proudly at CFS Alert. Reeve Clemens mentioned that Lunn’s father, Bryant, would attend the December 18 council meeting, “to

bring a presentation on behalf of the military.” Council members then moved to appoint Tonia Graham as Deputy-clerk, after which Councillor Jones asked if there were any issues to be brought to the Community Policing Advisory Committee meeting being held November 28 at the OPP detachment headquarters. CAO Ron Chittick suggested speed limits along Highway #7 should be mentioned. With the conclusion of the formal business at hand, council moved to the portion of the meeting where public input is welcomed. Kathy Please see “New” on page 3

But first there was the preview. After leaving the municipal offices at 7 p.m., the hourlong parade snaked through the downtown as the sounds of Christmas music preceded the arrival of the jolly old elf himself, who arrived on the final float complete with Christmas tree, sleigh and illuminated reindeer. As well, a hearty crew of Santa’s helpers provided additional Christmas greetings along the way.

High-speed provider targets local charities

EMC News - Stirling Dwayne Barrett admits he has a soft spot for local charities. So when he recently

moved his Frankford homebased business, Barrett’s Satellite Solutions, to an office in Stirling, he says, contributing to the community where he works was all part

Dwayne Barrett, pictured with his wife Jen and children Austin and Jadyn, recently opened Barrett’s Satellite Solutions across from the post office in Stirling. The company has chosen the BGH Foundation to reap the benefits from any installations completed by Christmas.

Hamilton, who has made many presentations during this time slot, spoke again about the proposed Northland Power pumped storage project. She noted that on October 25, a group of local residents had demonstrated outside the town hall prior to a county council meeting hosted by Marmora and Lake. She commented that in a November 7, video “embedded in Marmora and Lake’s Facebook page,” Reeve Clemens had said, “We have not been able to find one party who do not think it’s a good project …” She continued, “I could hardly blame people from near and far who have shared their reaction with me, for their having formed the opinion that he had publicly presented an outright lie, the instant they heard this public

statement from Clemens. “In my opinion and as a local resident in opposition who considers myself to have been publicly declared nonexistent by Clemens, I think that all local property owners likewise in opposition should anticipate their non-existent status being appropriately reflected with the council’s unanimous approval for immediate elimination of their responsibility to pay municipal property taxes in future and for all property taxes paid since council’s endorsement of this ‘pumped storage’ proposal on June 7, 2011, in long overdue return for their no representation of some, which is complementary to this publicly demonstrated betrayal of trust.” As in the past, Reeve Clemens thanked Hamilton for her input.

Bulls get in the Christmas spirit EMC News - Belleville The Belleville Bulls want the fur to fly early on Saturday night at home to the Kingston Frontenacs. The annual Teddy Bear Toss Night headlines a night of great family fun at the Yardmen Arena. In addition, the Bulls will be building a toy mountain in support of the Belleville Firefighters Toy Drive while the bears will be donated to the local Salvation Army. It took Daniil Zharkov until 3:53 into the second period last season to launch the bears out of their seats as the Bulls went on to defeat the Windsor Spitfires 4 - 1. Zharkov and the Bulls hope to top that this season against their biggest OHL rival in the Kings-

ton Frontenacs. “The Belleville Bulls want every child in the community to receive something nice this Christmas,” said Community Co-ordinator Erica Holgate. “Our annual Teddy Bear Toss is something all of our fans enjoy, and this season we decided to include support for the Firefighters Toy Drive as well. Making a mountain of toys on the main concourse will be a fun event.” Get in on the action Saturday night. When the Bulls score their first goal of the game, throw those bears! Great seats are still available. For more information, contact the Bulls Box Office at 613-966-8338 or purchase your tickets online at <www.>.

of the plan. An authorized Xplornet dealer, Barrett focuses on high-speed installations but adds their product line, which also includes other electronic devices such as security cameras, is expected to grow with the business. A licensed electrician, Barrett was forced out of the trade because of health reasons and started Barrett Satellite Solutions about two years ago. “It was time to expand,” he says of the recent move, and with subcontractors working for him in both Hastings and Prince Edward Counties the territory offers plenty of opportunity. “We can pretty much provide [high speed] every-

where,” he notes, thanks to government support of increased infrastructure to ensure access in rural areas. And he is anticipating a surge of business as Christmas approaches, in part thanks to the new location across from the Stirling post office. “We wanted to support local charities,” Barrett says of himself and wife Jen, who also works part time there as well as for the Belleville General Hospital Foundation, “so we picked BGH,” as the benefactor of the dealer’s pre-Christmas campaign. For each new installation, he says, $5 will be donated to the foundation “and the company is starting the drive with a base donation of $500,” he adds.

“We have two beautiful BGH babies,” says Jen of their children Jadyn and Austin, so their fund-raising dollars will be directed to the hospital’s maternity ward to purchase monitors. And there will be other recipients in future, the Barretts say. With a newly installed front window and increased exposure for the company, there will be regular walkins, he notes, “and we plan to put out a box for donations to the food bank. If people stop at the post office and want to [contribute], we’ll make sure it gets there.” The past weeks have been busy for the family, moving from the basement to a full-fledged storefront, and

Barrett says his father, an Xplornet dealer in Newfoundland, was instrumental in his career change. And he adds there are a lot of pluses to making the physical separation between home and work. And while he is in the business of connecting people to the rest of the world, Barrett says it’s important to stay in close contact with the people nearby. Barrett’s is located at 400 West Front Street (Building 1, Unit 3) and is open Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. with installations by appointment on Saturdays. Further information is available by contacting the office at 613-395-5552.

Anti-bullying campaign continues in Marmora By Judy Backus

EMC News - Marmora - The issue of bullying was front and centre for Grade 6 and 8 students at Marmora Senior Public School on November 20. OPP Community Services Officer Alana Deubel

arrived with a very dynamic PowerPoint presentation accompanied by equally strong video clips detailing the devastating effects of bullying and ways in which it can be turned around. While verbal, physical and

emotional bullying were all mentioned during the presentation, the increasing incidents and seriousness of cyber bullying received special consideration. The very attentive students were told that if they experienced this

type of intimidation, they should save the evidence and confide in a trusted adult. The effects of bullying are many and far reaching, for as the presentation indicated, they include, “depression, hopelessness, anxiety, and school and relationship problems. It’s not just the kids who get bullied who experience negative effects— it’s witnesses and people who bully, too.” The students were advised, “Doing nothing is actually doing something,” and “Stand up for a victim; they will remember you forever!” One clip, prepared at Lisle Junior High School in Illinois,

as part of their anti-bullying campaign, spoke of the impact of a turnaround which saw bystanders become what was termed upstanders. One by one, the students who witnessed the bullying rallied around the victim, the message being, “Don’t underestimate the power you have.” Following the presentations, the students headed down the hall where the discussion continued during a restorative practice circle. As Marmora Senior School Principal Suzanne Copeland explained at the conclusion of the morning, “Restorative practice circles are a strategy staff at Marmora Senior Pub-

lic School are implementing as a way to build a positive and caring school culture. Following the Grade Six and Eight anti-bullying awareness/prevention presentation by OPP PC Alana Deubel, students participated in a restorative circle to continue building their understanding of the impact of bullying and the bystander. The circle gave every student an opportunity to express their point of view about bullying while fostering an understanding of how a shared sense of community that accepts differences and being different can have a positive effect on the school climate.”

Israel PM Netanyahu scored some international political points by protecting Palestinian civilians and waging war with love, as opposed to Hamas, who wage war with hate. In a typical war, one often attempts to starve the enemy into defeat, or targets and terrorizes civilians. Some examples include: World War II - Allies attempted to starve Japan before it launched nuclear bombs for a quicker end. The Germans attempt to starve Russians in Stalingrad. World War II - Allies fire bombed Dresden and killed massive numbers of civilians Syrian civil war - just recently the Syrian government bombed the Aleppo hospital. In the Gaza war at the same time as rockets are in the air flying to Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, Israel does the following: Israel shipped about 100 trucks daily of food and medical supplies to Gaza. The market price of bananas did not increase as there was no shortage. On a single day during the war Israel evacuated

26 critically ill Gazans for treatment in Israeli medical facilities, a routine occurrence. Much of Gaza’s purified water is provided by Israel. Gaza receives more than 100 megawatts of electrical power from Israel, even though the town the source power plant is located in is targeted by Hamas rocket fire. Israel took over Hamas radio as well as dropped leaflets telling civilians to leave an area containing underground missiles before they were destroyed. They even provided the safest route to take to a safe area. Any other country in the world would have stopped humanitarian aid until the rockets stopped. Netanyahu has shown the world how Israelis can WAGE WAR WITH LOVE despite Hamas waging war with HATE. Going forward, Hamas has no strategy except the obliteration of Israel. Israel has no long-term strategy to deal with Hamas’ belligerence. Egypt is the wild card with the potential to support a period of calm. I note the best thing about banging one’s head against the wall, is how good it feels when you stop. I hope and pray this ceasefire lasts a long time for both sides. Oscar Zimmerman, Brighton

Dear Editor, Re: Gwynne Dyer November 22- Gaza: Another Pre-Election War? Gwynne Dyer’s editorial brings some insights into political decision making. I tend to agree with Mr. Dyer that Israeli PM Netanyahu had no need politically to start a pre-election war with Hamas. Hamas’ political motives for starting a war at any time differs from Israel. Israelis are the first people in history to grant the Palestinians their own viable, geographically coherent, potentially sovereign state. Instead of building the state, Hamas prefers to use the Gaza strip as a lawless platform for Jew-killing. Regardless what happens when the Israelis fight back, these deluded anti-Semites always declare victory. When Israelis die that is called a “military victory.” When Palestinian civilians die, that is called a “propaganda victory.” When Hamas fighters die, that is expression of martyrdom, and is called a “spiritual victory.” Given this mental model, it makes political sense at any time for Hamas to start a war with Israel. Hamas started this war when on November 10, they attacked an Israeli mobile patrol inside Israeli territory. This was a conflict of Hamas’ own choosing. The fact that the damage to

Morsi goes too far Is published weekly by Record News Communications, A division of Performance Printing Limited 244 Ashley Street P.O. Box 155 Foxboro, Ontario K0K 2B0 Local: 613-966-2034 Fax: 613-966-8747 This edition serves the following communities: Comfort Country Land O’Lakes Area Vice President & Regional Publisher Mike Mount Regional General Manager Peter O’ Leary Group Publisher Duncan Weir Publisher John Kearns ext 570 Editor Terry Bush ext 510 Northeast News Terry Bush ext 510 Advertising Consultant Jennet Honey ext 509 Classified Heather Naish ext 560 1-888-Word Ads Deadline: Monday 3:00pm Distribution Manager David McAdams ext 513 Production Manager Glenda Pressick ext 520

EMC Editorial “There is no middle ground, no dialogue before [Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi] rescinds this declaration,” said prodemocracy advocate and Nobel Peace Prize winner Mohammed ElBaradei. “There is Gwynne Dyer no room for dialogue when a dictator imposes the most oppressive, abhorrent measures and then says “let us split the difference.” Morsi won last June’s presidential election fair and square, but many Egyptians really are frightened that his decree of November 22 sweeps aside the democratic gains of last year’s revolution. The decree gives him absolute power, although he swears it is only for a limited time. Morsi was already governing by decree pending a new parliamentary election, since the courts had dissolved the lower house of parliament because the election was flawed. His latest decree declares that the courts cannot challenge any of his edicts until that new election takes place. The decree also states that he can take any steps necessary to defeat undefined “threats to the revolution” and nobody can ask the courts to decide whether those steps are legal and justifiable. In theory, at least, Morsi has given himself greater powers than the former dictator, Hosni Mubarak, ever possessed. This is as puzzling as it is alarming, since nothing in Morsi’s previous history suggests that he wants to be Egypt’s next dictator. He is a prominent member of the Muslim Brotherhood and shares its conservative social and religious values, but that organisation, the mainstay of opposition to Egypt’s military dictators during half a century of tyranny, has moved a long way from its radical and sometimes violent origins. So was Morsi a wolf in sheep’s clothing, just waiting for the chance to impose Islamic rule on everybody, including liberals, Christians, and secular Egyptians? How else can you explain what he has just done? The answer matters, because if Egypt, by far the most populous Arab country (90 million people), succumbs to a new tyranny, then the whole “Arab Spring” was just a brief illusion. Morsi’s actions are wrong, but he is not actually aiming at a dictatorship. He just wants to thwart the Supreme Judicial Council, made up of judges who almost all date from the Mubarak era, which had already dismissed the first body charged with writing a new constitution. There were indications that it might be about to dissolve the second one on the same grounds. The grounds were legally sound, for the first assembly chosen by parliament included a large number of MPs who belonged

Letter to the editor

to the Islamic parties, although the law said that members of parliament could not themselves sit in the Constituent Assembly. A second Constituent Assembly, chosen in June, once again included members of parliament in clear defiance of the law, which is why it is facing further court challenges. In the last month or so, the prospect that this new body will produce a constitution based mainly on Islamic law led most of the secular and Christian elements to withdraw. That deprived it of a voting quorum, but the remaining members, including many MPs linked to the Muslim Brotherhood, carried on regardless, so there was a growing probability that a new court ruling would dismiss this assembly too. Morsi moved swiftly, not only giving himself supreme powers beyond the ability of the courts to challenge, but specifically forbidding the Supreme Judicial Council to dismiss the second Constituent Assembly. He also gave that assembly an extra two months to finish writing the constitution, after which it would have to be approved by referendum. Only then (perhaps next May) would a new lower house of parliament be elected, and once the constitution is in place and the subsequent election is past, Morsi promised, he will relinquish his extraordinary powers. But by then Egypt would have an Islamic constitution, and almost certainly a lower house of parliament dominated by the Islamic parties. What is happening now, therefore, is not the rise of a new dictatorship but rather a ruthless political manoeuvre aimed at creating a democratic but Islamic Egypt. Naturally, it frightens a large proportion of the 49 per cent of Egyptians who voted against Morsi in the presidential election earlier this year, and it absolutely terrifies the country’s 8 million Christians. Morsi’s edict has been met with impassioned protest in the streets, and the formation of a National Salvation Front aimed at uniting all non-Islamist groups to force Morsi to rescind his edicts. Its leaders include three of the candidates who ran against Morsi in the election earlier this year. But that may not be enough. The truth is that the elections produced a parliamentary majority and a president who want to impose Islamic law, and that its opponents are using various legal devices in an attempt to stop the process. Moreover, a new constitution imposing Islamic law would almost certainly get a “yes” in a referendum. But the other truth is that majorities in a democracy should not try to impose their religious and social views on large minorities who do not share them. Morsi is already showing signs of wanting to compromise, but, as ElBaradei pointed out, he cannot take these extreme measures and then offer to “split the difference.” Egypt is in for a rough ride.

A solution to our flawed political system

Dear Editor, I would like to commend Kurt Crist on his recent letter, and his perceptive observations about one of the major flaws in our parliamentary system. I have a similar solution, but I think we have to work through the political parties. I believe he is perfectly correct that Stephen Harper is a virtual dictator, being PM with a majority in parliament, because he commands the votes of all his party members. The flaw that Kurt mentions is the fact that all MPs must vote the party line, except in those rare occasions of a free vote. In observing our system for 50 plus years, I believe

what happens is that new MPs are indoctrinated by the sitting members that parliament has a whole different culture, and all it’s traditions are sacrosanct, and not to be challenged. To which I say, Tommyrot! I believe the solution to the flaw Kurt mentioned, could be reformed, by simple agreement of all the political parties in the house. Instead of considering every vote, like a vote of confidence, they could and should, define the term of a confidence motion, and severely restrict such votes to a limited number. All other votes, would be considered free votes. By gosh, we then might actually have democracy break out. MPs, instead of acting like trained seals, could actually vote their conscience, or better yet the polled opinion of their constituents. To me this is just one of several reforms needed in our system because without them, both the federal and provincial government are increasing becoming more irrelevant to many younger people. I fear that one day they will call an election and no one will come out to vote! Could you imagine all the groaning and whining the politicians would make then! John A. D. McLean, Belleville

All I want for Christmas is … By Terry Bush EMC Editorial - We don’t really make Christmas lists around our place anymore. Instead we seem to always decide to give each other some lame, though expensive and much-needed home appliance or vehicle or if we’re lucky and nothing has broken down, a trip we’d already planned to take. This year, we’ve once again decided to follow the same route forsaking our birthday and Christmas presents in search of knowledge and fun in some far-flung place. People generally don’t understand why we put ourselves through the jet lag, risk of poisonous snakes and insects, heat, cold, humidity and paucity of English-speaking natives when we could just lie on a beach. When we’ve stood on the side of a road in the blazing midday sun for half a day wondering what became of that bus that was supposed to take us to our next destination five hours away, we usually wonder the same thing. Fact of the matter is, we’re travellers and only fellow travellers can fully appreciate the allure of the many trials and tribulations that await us. We’ve tried to explain ourselves many times to no avail. People see us come home sick from our adventures and shake their heads. Some vacation they say. And that’s the thing. It’s not a vacation, it’s a trip. We’ll take a vacation when we’re older, we say, not really knowing what the word older means anymore. Older when you’re in your teens means your twenties. Older in your twenties means your forties. Now that we’re in our fifties and still run into people in their sixties walking through airports carrying backpacks, older means when we’re in our seventies. Where once we could just grab a backpack and go, we now have to train for a couple of months so we don’t seize up the first day out. Maybe we already are older. The difference between travelling and taking a vacation down south is simple. The smart people who travel to the Caribbean and spend their time at an all-inclusive resort, come home tanned and well-fed. They often don’t see much of the country and only get to know the locals who wait on them at the resort but that doesn’t really matter. The whole point of going south isn’t to immerse one’s self in local culture, it’s to head out with friends and family and experience a great time away from our frosty winters. Same with the folks who love to cruise. Fly to where you get on the boat, board, kick back and have a good time. There will be several ports of call along the way where you can get off and shop. Your ship will usually be docked long enough to take a bus tour to see some of the local sights. Get back on and away you go. The buffet table awaits and once again, the pants may be a little snugger on the way home. (The more I write, the more I think everyone else knows more than we do about having a good time. We usually lose ten pounds per trip.) With us, it’s all about getting away from everything North American and discovering what’s out there. It’s the allure of adventure and unpredictability. It’s about seeing wildlife in its natural habitat and people too. It’s about handing a little ball that cost a quarter in Canada to some barefoot child in tattered clothing and receiving a smile that stretches from ear to ear. It’s about being the last two people to board a beat up minivan bus with a broken frame that already has 25 smiling occupants sitting on top of each other. It’s about a friendly dump truck driver stopping in the middle of nowhere and asking if you’d like a ride to the next village and then having him arrange another ride for you in the back of a half-ton full of fruit. Wherever we travel, we come home with great memories. Even the bad ones mellow with age and years later, we can even laugh at ourselves and some of the predicaments we’ve gotten ourselves into. The older we get, the more we realize how stupid and trusting we were and how close we could have been to not coming home at all. When we watch television at home, we smile and look at each other whenever we see a familiar sight and say in unison, “We’ve been there.” There’s nothing quite like being self-satisfied and smug in the privacy of one’s own home. We’ve made friends along the way and have stayed with some of them in their home countries and they’ve stayed with us. We hope to make many more. My favourite reason to travel is once again this year I won’t have to travel to the Quinte Mall or any other store to purchase a Christmas gift for my wife because we’re eventually going to get on an airplane. While the rest of you are swearing and cursing at the people who are swearing and cursing at you, I’ll be looking at some Lonely Planet guidebook doing a little research on some foreign locale. Merry Christmas to me. Northeast EMC - Thursday, November 29, 2012


Bronson Parkette dedication marks contribution By Richard Turtle

EMC News - Madoc With municipal officials and family members on hand last Wednesday afternoon, dedication ceremonies were conducted naming Bronson Parkette. Named for resident Hattie Bronson who passed away

in 2007 the parkette, located on the property where the family home stood on St. Lawrence Street West, “is all part of our overall Green Space Plan,” says Deputy-reeve Tom Simpson who grew up in a house nearby. “It is important that as time goes on that we remember those who have contributed to our community,” Simpson said during his address and introduction of those present. And Hattie Bronson, he says, made countless contributions. Also on hand for the unveiling of a sign on the property were three of Bronson’s sons, Jack, Wayne and Brian, who share many memories of the property and surrounding neighbourhoood. Reeve Owen Ketcheson also offered his thanks on behalf of the municipality as did former Reeve Tom Deline,

noting, “there have been a lot of good times in this community,” before recounting some Bronson memories. “And on behalf of the community, I want to say thanks for working with the municipality on the property.” The space, Simpson says, will be a “passive parkette” with future plans for the addition of benches but no other development on the property. Preserving it as a parkette is, he says, “an opportunity to keep a piece of history for years to come. And Simpson admits he has his own Hattie Bronson stories too. “Hattie and I first met when she changed my diapers as an infant,” he says, but they were reintroduced as adults “and we became very good friends.” Councillor Mike Kerby was also in attendance representing the municipality.

Scholar who served on the legal staff at the Nuremberg War Trials. His justice was swift and unbiased, often disputed, (see Rocket Richard), but always obeyed. The contrast of the NHL from my vivid “little kid memories of heroes,” to the complete abandonment of both “little and big kid fans of today” is astounding. Gary Bettman is in fact now presiding over the “Weasel War Trials”! Instead of offering leadership in restraining misguided and greedy participants on both sides of the table—like Clarence Campbell would have done—he demonstrates his true Weasel character. We, who were so faithful for so long, don’t care about you NHL tyrants anymore. You stiffed us, and ignored us, and gouged us, and were unfaithful to us. My final punishment must be meted out to the Chairman of the Weasels—Gary Bettman. I envision a long pass to him in full flight at centre ice. He is met by Wild Bill Ezinicki who delivers the most thunderous body-check of all time. A cartwheeling Weasel is indeed thrown to the rafters where he is impaled upon a golden hockey stick and left to writhe there for eternity. And so it was written.

Project back on track ate a location for visitors to seek information, develop the farmers’ market and create an attraction utilized for community activities, and create a connection between the east end commercial area and the central downtown business core. All projects included in this plan are also outlined as priorities in the municipality’s Integrated Community Sustainability Plan.” After discussion around phase one concluded, council made a motion to submit a funding application for phase two, which includes the construction of a market structure, signage, landscaping, information panels, lighting and street furnishings. “I am pleased to see that we can continue to move in a positive direction as phase two of the Gateway Project is executed,” says Jeremy Solmes, councillor and chair of the Economic Development Committee. “This project supports both our tourism and agricultural sectors and will increase traffic in the business area once completed, as well as provide a welcome area for visitors to the community.” More information about the Gateway Development Project can be obtained by visiting the municipal web site. Upon receipt of funding, it is anticipated that phase two be completed by June of 2013.

EMC News - Stirling - The Stirling-Rawdon Economic Development Committee welcomed members of council as a delegation to their recent committee meeting asking for clarification around the Gateway Development Project. The improvement plan being executed at the former site of the police/fire facility is being conducted in three phases, with the first phase completed last October. Completed is the construction of an information pavilion, promotional items, a new Stirling-Rawdon promotional pamphlet and four community message centers to be installed throughout the village. A new municipal sidewalk was constructed, excavation and utility connections made and the design of the future market structure completed so footings could be installed prior to paving. Council was told the total expenditures for phase one were $71,300, with a net cost to the municipality of $29,150. “With limitations to this municipal site, the Economic Development Committee analyzed the needs of the community and what would be feasible,” says Economic Development Officer Elisha Maguire. “The three-phase proposal submitted by Heartland Environmental Design was approved in February 2012, with the intent to cre-

Nutrition session featured healthy lunches

By Judy Backus

EMC Lifestyles - Marmora - The breakfast room at Earl Prentice Public School takes on an additional use every six weeks when Gateway Community Heath Centre’s Registered Dietitian, Ashley Hartnett, arrives at the school bringing food and recipes for one of the regular nutrition sessions. The gathering, which takes place as a partnership be-

tween Gateway and the school, attracted a total of 20 parents and students on the afternoon of November 21 when the theme for the day was Healthy Ideas for School Lunches. The suggested menus went far beyond the scope of the usual sandwich lunch fare and included a variety of tasty items which included all four food groups. Among the featured recipes were taco

salad, healthy burritos, and cold pasta salad, along with suggestions for other lunch menus that could be enjoyed by all members of the family. One included a favourite snack item, that being a dark chocolate square, for as the accompanying take-home information noted, “If your family loves chocolate, then bring them over to the dark side. Dark chocolate contains

flavanols, a plant compound found to promote healthy blood pressure and blood flow in the skin, heart and brain.” While at the session, participants had a chance to help with the preparation and assembly of the food, taste the results, then head home with a ready-to-go lunch for the next day.

EMC Entertainment Stirling - Young and accomplished violinist Sebastian Sallans will be returning to Stirling next year to perform once again in support of the Stirling Festival of Sacred Praise. Sallans’ mother, Bonnie Sallans, says Silver and Gold is back, this time with Petya Stavreva, an awardwinning young pianist, current scholarship student at Toronto’s Glenn Gould School for professional musicians and graduate of the performance program at the U of T.  Calling her a highly accomplished musician, Bonnie says both Sebastian and she were thrilled when Stavreva agreed. While the concert isn’t scheduled until June 8, next year, tickets are available now, she says, adding, “Christmas is coming and concert tickets make excellent gifts.” The last Silver and Gold concert came close to selling out so buying early might be a good idea, she notes.

Aymar delights small Amazing Coffee crowd EMC Entertainment - Madoc - Jay Aymar has toured the country as a singer/songwriter and he’s met his fair share of characters. And he freely admits to his propensity for “odd, strange tunes” that tell a slightly different story about the same old world. And heavily influenced by the likes of Steve Goodman and John Prine, he seems to come by it honestly. Aymar, a guitarist who performs a mix of original and cover tunes, appeared at Amazing Coffee last week, delighting a small crowd on a quiet Tuesday night with a

range of stories and songs. A Canadian Folk Music Awards Emerging Artist of the Year Nominee, he was billed as “Canada’s version of John Prine” by Amazing Coffee’s Andy Logan and Aymar’s original tunes were proof of that. But Logan, called out of town on short notice, was like many who unfortunately missed a seriously listenable and intimate show. His partner Carolyn was there though, and says they were both looking forward to the return engagement. Another might just be warranted. Whether singing to Rose

in the voice of Don Cherry or describing three very different love stories, Aymar’s well-crafted images conjure an odd sense of familiarity in a not-so-ordinary world. Undoubtedly even after having to “explain, in North Carolina to a bunch of NASCAR fans, who Don Cherry is.” So while his songs may be uniquely Canadian, they are also distinctly human. And being human means being unusual and unpredictable and sometimes beyond comprehension. But at the same time it also means being accessible. My Cherry Coloured Rose,

he told the small group, was recorded by Ian Tyson for his latest album. Along with offering some of his own compositions, Aymar also provided a compelling cover version of Prine’s Sam Stone, an ageless song about post-Vietnam and Post Traumatic Stress, as well as tips of the hat to others with bittersweet, or just bitter or just sweet, tales of life and

love and death. Stories that normalize the inexplicable. Even Elvis was like that, he says. “What struck me about Graceland is how small it was. I mean, it was huge, but it wasn’t out of the ordinary.” Between trips south of the border, he spends much of his time touring Canada, racking up a lot of distance over the course of 150 shows this year. And the travel always

presents its share of new encounters and observations, he says. In his own tune, Passing Through, Aymar observes, “We turned Jesus into Elvis who turned records into bread/We work the world for prophets now that our King is dead.” And he points out during his performance, that profits has two different spellings.

That swimmer pulled ahead at the end and beat Nicole by 0:55 of a second. It was a great race, so close.” All together, says Primrose, Canada took home three world medals including one gold and two bronze; two international relay medals and 29 individual international medals. “Not bad for nine athletes,” she says.

After coming out flying in the first, the Atom AE Grizzlies faded a little bit in the second period of their game against Oshawa on Saturday in Madoc. Luckily, defensive plays like the one made by a sprawling Ben Bailey kept things close, allowing the Grizzlies to come out on top by a 6 - 4 score.

second period as Rebecca Broadbent scored to put her team up by a 3 - 0 score with assists from Brayden Bertrand and Jacob Preston. Still in the second period, Brayden Bertrand put the Grizzlies up by a commanding 4 - 0 score. With steady defensive play and key saves, the Grizzlies cruised through the third period and finished the game with a 4 - 1 victory. Game two versus the Deep River Knights was an early morning game on Saturday. After a scoreless opening period, the Grizzlies seemed to awake and overwhelmed their opponent with four goals in the second. Kyle Cook and Jacob Preston each netted two goals to help the Grizzlies jump out to a big lead. Although the Knights put up a spirited battle, the Grizzlies took game two by a 4 - 2 score. The third and final roundrobin game was a contest with the Valley Storm. This game was a heated contest between two well-matched teams but, with a goal from Daniel Murphy assisted from Peyton

Kelsh, the Grizzlies opened the scoring. Other goals from Brayden Bertrand and Kyle Cook proved to be too much for the Valley Storm, and Centre Hastings came out with a 3 - 1 win to finish the round-robin undefeated. Although they finished first place in their division, on Sunday the Bantam Grizzlies were matched up in the semi-final against a strong Norwood Hornets team, who also went through the roundrobin without a loss. This game turned out to be a back and forth struggle in which the Grizzlies could not put the puck past the Hornets goalie, despite a number of chances. In the end, Centre Hastings fell by a score of 3 - 0 to end an exciting run by the Grizzlies. Next up in regular season play for the Bantam Grizzlies is a game Friday, November 30, in Marmora at 8:30 p.m. against the Brighton Braves and Sunday in Marmora versus the Tweed Hawks at 4:30 p.m. The Peewee AE Grizzlies entered their Friday, Novem-

with a 6 - 3 victory. As the Grizzlies headed to Port Hope the next day, they knew they would have to step up their game to compete with the first place Phantoms (111-1) whose only loss in regular season play came against Centre Hastings early in the year. It didn’t start out well for the Grizzlies, as the Phantoms controlled play early and jumped out to a quick 1 - 0 lead. Still in the first period, an outstanding effort by Isabella Portt with an assist from Jamie “Boomer” Shorts helped the Grizzlies tie the game up at one. Although for much of the second period there were many opportunities to score, neither team could notch a go-ahead goal. The third period saw each team have powerplay opportunities as the play turned toward the chippy side. Once again Brennan Bush made numerous saves, not allowing Port Hope to regain the lead. And so, both teams extend their lengthy unbeaten streaks, ending with a 1 - 1 draw. Up next for the Centre Hastings Peewee AE Grizzlies is the Regional Silverstick tournament, beginning Saturday, December 1, in Minden.

Midway through the opening period, the Grizzlies opened the scoring with a powerplay goal only to have the Crusaders notch the tying goal near the end of the frame. The second period had Brennen Bush making many outstanding saves to keep the score knotted at one, then Cody Evans made his slapshot from the point count and the Grizzlies took the lead into the final period by a 2 - 1 score. Five minutes into the third period, the Grizzlies put the game out of reach when Cody “end to end” Evans once again scored by taking the puck out of his zone, weaving through the Crusaders and putting another hard slapshot past the opposing goalie, resulting in a 3 - 1 win for the Grizzlies. With a road game the next day, the Grizzlies travelled to Ennismore to take on the Eagles. The Grizzlies started slow and were in penalty trouble for much of the game but with a good second half and strong efforts by Lachlan McLean and goalie Hayden Hammock, the Peewee AE Grizzlies escaped Ennismore

tured a ceremonial face-off between captains Conor Hodge and Liam Stoltz, the puck dropped by Ted Morin. But the game belonged to the Grizzlies. Despite an early goal from the Blues, just over one minute into the first period, it was a short-lived lead as the Centre Hastings squad responded with a strong offensive effort, eventually coasting to a 7 - 2 win. The Blues Bailey Matthews started things off with a slapshot from just inside the blue line that eluded goalie Les Brownson, with assists going to Jack Dow and Cole Van Schelven. But the Grizzlies evened the score just over a minute later. Brayden Bailey hit the bottom corner of the net with a quick shot from the slot, assisted by Abby Cassidy, before the visitors grabbed the lead for good 15 seconds later on an unassisted marker from Brinley Finch. Centre Hastings went up 3 - 1 when Ben Oke scored from Liam Stoltz with Dow putting the Blues within one before the buzzer. Cameron Bush got the assist.

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.

Take a “Christmas journey” at Sidney Baptist Church By Terry Bush

EMC Entertainment - Reserve December 8 or 9 on your calendar to experience an evening devoted to the true meaning of Christmas. Sidney Baptist Church, located between Stirling and Foxboro, will once again host a “Journey to Bethlehem” on their property on Baptist Church Road, 2.5 kilometres north of Highway 14, west of Highway 62. The spectacle, held every other year, is a re-enactment of the events leading up to the first Christmas. Visitors will be taken on a 30-minute guided tour through the church’s wooded property to visit 20 different stations, each with a story to tell. Over 100 volunteers are involved in the project, both behind the scenes and in costume taking on the roles of all the well-known characters involved in the first Christmas. This wasn’t something Sidney Baptist could attempt by itself, according to Pastor Scott Chatterson. “There are 11 churches involved this year to varying degrees. Each church either has taken on a station to man or will assist in other volunteer capacities [like parking, working in the hospitality tent, helping with crowd control in church, etc.] The churches are located as far away as Havelock,

Campbellford, Belleville, and Stirling. This year we have Campbellford Baptist, Havelock United, Sidney Baptist, Community Pentecostal, Grace Bible Chapel, Stirling Presbyterian, St. James Catholic, Victoria Avenue Baptist, Westminster United, Parkdale Baptist and Alliance Church,” said Pastor Scott. “The Journey creates amazing opportunities for partnerships with other churches; creating a very blended environment and building a strong community together. We look forward to partnering with other churches in the future as this ministry grows.” Along the way, visitors will meet shepherds, lepers, live animals, Roman guards and of course make a stop at the inn where it all began. The journey doesn’t stop at the stable but continues on beyond the cross and the tomb. In 2010, the congregation greeted approximately 800 visitors and the hope this year is 2,000 people will find their way to Sidney Baptist Church. A first this year will be guided tours led by American Sign Language interpreters as the Journey tries to be even more inclusive. The Journey to Bethlehem will be open between 5:30 and 9 p.m. on December 8 and 9 with free admission. Offerings will be gladly accepted.

Sabourin comes from a mushing family; his father and his brother were mushers, and this is how he found a passion for the sport. In 1964 he set out on his first dog sled, and for the last 48 years he hasn’t looked back. Of those 48 years, 35 have been spent with an annual weekend visit along picturesque Highway 7 to Marmora and Lake. This year, Sabourin and numerous other mushers will be arriving in Marmora to celebrate the 35th anniversary of SnoFest weekend. Now he is cap-

There are also two draws for cash prizes, and the buttons give you access to SnoFest on the first weekend in February. It’s really a gift that keeps on giving.” Please see “Feeling” on page B3

A little bit of heaven for train enthusiasts By Michael J Brethour

EMC Lifestyles - Belleville - Choo! Choo! That’s the sound train lovers have been keenly straining their ears to hear for majority of the year; this weekend railroad enthusiasts will not have to wait any longer. The event, which draws young and old like moths to a flame, is held once again at Quinte Secondary School on College Street West in Belleville on December 1 and 2, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days. Right on schedule in time for Christmas the 17th annual show will offer wares for the budding model railroader and veteran alike. Rick Potter, secretary of the Belleville Model Rail-

roading Club and chair of the club show, said this year’s show features at least 29 model train exhibitors, up from last year by about five entries. He said the slight increase from last year can be attributed to the word of mouth of the Belleville show being worthwhile. Potter said the timing of the show just before Christmas is no mistake. “It really is the perfect spot to get the model train enthusiast in your family a thoughtful Christmas gift or to start someone off who has expressed an interest in model trains,” he said. “Everything they need to build a complete model railroad set will be on hand, or even if they just need a specific piece

the show will have it all.” Those attending the show have their choice of train memorabilia, photos, postcards, pieces of actual trains and of course building materials from the 30 plus vendors that will be on hand. “Either new or used, from G scale all the way down to Z scale, rolling stock engine, videos knickknacks, Tshirts, everything a model rail enthusiast would want or need. All kinds of starter kits for those interested in feeding possible interests of a loved one for Christmas,” he said. It depends on the person how much they want to spend on the hobby, but it doesn’t have to be an arm and a leg.

“In some cases its $50 to $100 for low-end kit; on the high end you’re looking for $300 to $400 for an engine, you’ll look at close to $1,000 just to get going on the high end,” he said. Potter said vendors and layout display operators come from basically all over southern Ontario, mainly because the show is generally recognized as the largest of its kind. “People will be amazed at the detail of some of the layouts and the work that has gone into it by some of the members, to realistically portray a scene or a real situation, right down to dogs barking, pigeons or icicles hanging from the roof,” said Potter The size of the show re-

mains roughly the same he explained, basically filling the cafeteria, atrium and gymnasium of Quinte Secondary School year after year. “We still have some room to grow; we’re not pot bound as of yet, but we’re pretty close,” he noted.

Admission to the show is $5 for adults, $4 for seniors/students, $2 for children and a family rate of $10. “It’s good value for the money and the public comes out to visit us, which is really encouraging for the hobby,” he said.

ous day’s shakedown runs were made to acquaint the drivers with the routes to be driven. Tire choices were in all cases a compromise, as no tire could handle both extremes equally. One unfortunate entrant, the fan-favourite team of Leonid (Crazy Leo) Ulrichich and co-driver Carl Williamson, was unable to make the Saturday morning start. In a note posted on the bulletin board late Friday afternoon, Ulrichich said: “We have one goal in rallying, and that is to go as fast as possible. Therefore, it is with great disappointment I have made the difficult decision to withdraw from the event.” He cited the lack of time available for rebuilding and testing his car after a rollover crash at the previous rally. For Richard/Ockwell, success did not come easily, as they too encountered a flat tire in the final stage. They chose to drive on, damaging the braking system, which resulted in a brake fire. Vic-

tory was sweet, though, as they had been beset by mechanical problems throughout the season. Meanwhile, the L’Estage/Richard team chose to stop and change their flat tire, which resulted in sufficient loss of time to drop them into second place. They retained their lead in the overall points standing to win the Canadian Rally Championship, having won four of the six rallies, and finishing second in the other two. The heavy attrition rate brought the team of Ugo Desgreniers and Erik Kirby into third place for the Open Class cars, with Ryan Huber and John Vanos fourth. In the production GT class, Alexandre and Nicholas Ouellette finished first, and fifth overall. For the two wheel drive cars, Martin Walter and Ferdinand Trauttsmandorff placed first, and eleventh overall, while Eric Grochowski and Leanne Junnila followed and claimed the national class championship.

Mayor calls ATV meeting “positive” By Bill Freeman



EMC Sports - The Rally of the Tall Pines at Bancroft is the last event on the 2012 rally calendar, and was the scene of many surprises this year. Overall Canadian Rally Championship points leaders Antoine L’Estage and co-driver Nathalie Richard were leading the rally going into the final stage until a flat tire delayed their progress. As a result, the team of Patrick Richard and Alan Ockwell capitalized on their competitors’ misfortune and claimed the victory. Fifty-five entrants started the day, and there were 26 retirements. This list included four who rolled their cars, six listed as “off road,” and the remainder dropped out with various engine, electrical, and mechanical woes. Unforgiving surprises greeted competitors at every turn, as road conditions varied all the way from loose gravel to hard-packed icy sections. Snow had fallen overnight, after the previ-

mine what direction they’ll take with it in 2013. Mayor Gerow spoke at the town hall meeting in Norwood about Havelock-BelmontMethuen’s own ATV bylaw which has been in place for two years. “It’s been very successful with no incidents where council has had to step in and reintroduce the bylaw or call into question any part of the bylaw,” he said. One of the reasons things have gone so well, Gerow said, was the “close relationship forged with the local ATV club.” One thing council was “adamant about,” he said, was once the bylaw was in place the Havelock and District ATV Club would have to “police it, maintain it and look after it. “They’ve done a good job of that. They’ve been very effective in the way it’s been dealt with.” The club has “played a role in monitoring use of ATV’s on township roads and county roads the last six months,” Gerow said. “There have been no incidents in any manner dealing with ATVs.” The county’s ATV bylaw allows short sections of the

gravelled shoulders of designated county roads to be used to connect with local multiuse trails. HavelockBelmont-Methuen is the only municipality in the county that has struck an agreement with the county to allow certain sections to be used. “To the best of my knowledge it has worked out well,” Gerow said adding that he foresees a need to expand on some of the provisions of the county’s bylaw to allow for more connections to trails, especially in HBM. “There may be a need to revisit this and look at some small additions to help the club be able to further [access] some of the trails,” he said. “One of the most important factors [is] these pieces of [county roads] are links to other trails that are offroad. The ATV club is working diligently toward developing some of the trails in the area; the majority of the kilometres of those trails are off the road. “I see these road pieces as links. I think that’s very important.” “Basically it’s been a good experience for us [but] we’re always open to public comment, ” Gerow added.

Aiming lower

Reality Check:

EMC Lifestyles - Lately our family’s soundtrack has been country music. Perhaps it’s because there’s a group of teenage boys that my daughters hang out with who listen to country, but for whatever reason my girls have started downloading country songs off iTunes. And one of the ones they love is Montgom-

The Good Earth: EMC Lifestyles - The tradition of the Christmas tree is fraught with conflict, suppression, and manipulation. It has been seen as both antiChristian and anti-pagan. It has been used as political statement and it has been used as nothing more than an extravagance for the posh drawing room. For the most part, retail purposes ignored, today’s Christmas tree has come to represent family togetherness, and a communal expression of hope and good will. In many Christian homes, the symbolism of the tree itself has little to do with religious expression; you will find nativities and crèches and other representatives of faith situated in places of honour. Let’s just say, that for whatever the reason a family uses to bring a tree into the

home, today’s tree represents goodness and that is enough. Folks are already bringing in the green, especially the Christmas tree, into their homes to add festive cheer and decoration. For me, it is a titch early as I grew up with the tradition of the tree coming into the house shortly before Christmas and then exiting on New Year’s Day. Not only that, the tree was usually a white spruce, prickly and stinky. Stinky in the sense of smelling like cat pee and prickly in the sense of the needles always being able to find the most tender part of my face as I rummaged, secretly, through the presents. (The “stinky” bit is not connected with my copyrighted phrase “The air is redolent with the stench of rotting tree carcasses.”

nary life. My girls and their friends are obsessing over their futures: What should I take in school? What business can I start? What do I want to do with the rest of my life? And the message they get, over and over, is aim for success! What if that’s the wrong message? Too many people are aiming for the virtually impossible. They want to have a high paying job where they love their work but have short hours. They want to be famous. They want things easy. Life, however, rarely works like that. Most who do eventually earn great success do so only after putting in their time in the trenches.

But let’s not forget that the time in the trenches is not just a means to an end; like Montgomery Gentry sings, it’s something to be proud of, even if you never rise that far above it. What’s wrong with earning an honest living? What’s wrong with working hard, putting in an effort, and slowly but surely building up a small nest egg? You may not take a cruise every year, or have a collection of shoes, or buy each new iPhone that comes out, but it can still be a very rewarding life. Everything you have you worked for. Maybe, instead of telling kids to aim for a life of massive success and leisure, we should be espousing the vir-

tues of aiming lower. We talk down honest work too much. We tell girls who want to be nurses’ aides to be doctors instead. We tell boys who just want to work with their hands that they need a university degree. We tell kids that they should aim for a life where they’ll be rich and don’t have to get dirty. No wonder so many people think simple work is beneath them! You may begin at minimum wage, but work hard and you’ll work your way up. You’ll be able to save for a small house, put food on the table and buy a few luxuries. Aiming lower may not be glamorous, but it’s still something to be proud of. The Brookings Institute

A green Christmas Stinky actually does mean it doesn’t smell good, at least to me. I would say the most pleasantly fragrant tree is the balsam fir, and it doesn’t matter if it’s from Nova Scotia or Ontario.) The bottom line of a cut Christmas tree is the bottom or lack thereof. The top of the tree is dead; it just doesn’t know it yet. The length of time for cellular consciousness to kick in, which is displayed by a spectacular needle drop, varies depending upon the type of tree. The tree with the strongest sense of denial is the Fraser Fir and with the recent introduction into our area, is matched by the Nordman Fir. You can bring them inside now and be confident, with proper care, they will retain their supple and moisture filled needles until the middle

of January and even longer. Balsams can be good for up to three weeks and most spruces have their needles hang in there about two weeks or so. Proper care includes making a fresh cut before putting the tree into the receptacle; keeping the receptacle filled with water; and, not setting it near fireplaces, woodstoves or heating vents. Some folks still use lighted candles. These are the people who call away our friends at Station No. 1 from their Christmas activities. There are several other considerations for selecting a tree. It has to look good which is a subjective matter at best and, as a chap who helps customers with their purchase, I can tell you that a great deal of time and invited comment is employed. It has

to have needles. This seems like a simple statement but there is a lot more to it. For sure, when you look at a tree you will see needles covering the ground just below it. Don’t look at them; look at the needles still on the tree; those are the ones that are important. All the stems and twigs should have needles. You might find the occasional denuded branch on an otherwise good looking tree. If so, look along the branch and see if it is broken. That would be a good thing. If not, then walk away from that tree, there are others. The needles on the tree should be flexible and the have the colour that matches. For example a Colorado blue spruce will have blue needles and that is a good thing. If you see a white pine with blue-grey needles, that is not

At the Dominion Curling Club championship

By John M. Smith

EMC Lifestyles - Last week, my wife and I decided to drive to Scarborough to take in some of the action at the Dominion Curling Club

they certainly let the rest of the crowd know! We were, of course, there to watch the Ontario foursome “do their thing,” and on that particular day they

at St. George’s Golf & Country Club. Here they tasted defeat for the first time, but still qualified for the playoffs.  In the final, the Quinte Curling Club foursome got

the mantra for Team Ontario had been, all week, “One rock at a time, one end at a time, one game at a time.”  She said, “It got us to where we are, so all is good. We’re excited to be bringing the win back to our club.” I’ve been a member of the Quinte Curling Club for more than 25 years, and this is the first time that I’ve seen a local team participate at this level.  The Dominion Curling Club Championship is a relatively new competition, and it provides grass roots curling teams from across the entire country with an opportunity to compete against other club champions.  What makes this year’s event even more remarkable for our local club is that we came within a shot of having both the men’s and ladies’ provincial champions, for Dave Collyer was narrowly defeated in the men’s provincial final.  The Dominion Insurance

defeated both Prince Edward Island and Saskatchewan. Right after the victory over Prince Edward Island, I joined the ladies on the ice to get a photo of them to accompany this article.  I’d already decided that, win or lose, they deserved some publicity for their awesome achievement, for it’s not an “easy road” to get to this level of competition. The “road” began at the club level, for the foursome of Caroline Deans, SherriLynn Collyer, Kendra Lafleur, and Lynne Stapley first had to win the club championship last season.  Then, after that accomplishment, they were eligible to enter the regional competition of the Dominion Curling Club Championship this year, so off they went to compete in Renfrew back in October.  After placing first at the regionals, they were off to the provincial competition, held

revenge on the team that had defeated them (skipped by Stacey McCormack), for this time they won, but it was very tension-filled and close: 5 - 4 (won by stealing the last end!). The provincial victory led them to the nationals in Scarborough, and the rest, as they say, is history! In conversation with the team after that Thursday afternoon game, they told me that the “road” to the nationals was actually much longer than I’ve just described for they had to put in the time of getting to know one another as curlers.  Caroline, Sherri-Lynn, Kendra, and Lynne did this by curling together in the club’s Wednesday Night Open League for three years and by competing in a number of bonspiels and competitions.  Then they decided, last year, to compete in the Monday Night Ladies Competitive League.  Ironically, they won in their first year of participation and then they went on to this year’s amazing achievements. As I watched them on that Thursday afternoon in Scarborough, I was particularly impressed by their focus.  I never saw the team members looking at the crowd, for they simply stayed on task, and obviously represented us very well.  Winning was the bonus! After the final game, Caroline Deans stated that

Company sponsors this annual event, held at curling clubs across Canada, and the company does a great job with it. The aim of this competition is “to support ordinary curlers and the development of curling across Canada” – and it’s “formulated for true club curlers.”  A one-hour overview of the event will be seen on

TSN2 on December 2. Next year’s national championship will also take place in Ontario, this time at the Fort William Curling Club in Thunder Bay (November 25 to 30).  Wouldn’t it be nice if we had a team from this area back there again? For more information <www.thedominioncurls. ca>.

Championship. After all, one of the Quinte Curling Club’s very own teams was representing Ontario in this national event, so we wanted to cheer them on.  As probably everyone knows by now, our local team won the entire event—and won every game in the week-long competition. We arrived at the Scarboro Golf & Country Club in time for the ladies’ afternoon draw on Thursday, November 22, and we mingled with a very vocal and enthusiastic group of spectators who were taking in the action and cheering for their favourites.  On that particular day, I’d have given the award for “most frenzied fans” to two of the out-of-province groups in attendance: Quebec and Manitoba.  These spectators seemed to enjoy whooping it up for every important curling shot that was made, and

For the love of a land The Murray Marsh Natural Habitat Area covers approximately 3,630 hectares (9,000 acres) and is classified as a provincially significant wetland. As one of the largest and most complete tracts of undisturbed marsh and swamp forest remaining in southeastern Ontario, the area is the only major floodwater storage for the Trent River system south of Campbellford and also serves as a giant filtration system for nutrients to improve water quality in the river. Lower Trent Conservation acquired a number of properties in the Murray Marsh, including the Puddephatt farm, during the late 1980s with financial assistance from the Nature Conservancy of Canada, Ontario Heritage Foundation, Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR) and Wildlife Habitat Canada. Through the combined ownership of property by Lower Trent Conservation and MNR, about 50 per cent of Murray Marsh is protected.

Charlie and he was given a life lease to care for the land until his death in 2010. A memorial stone now rests at the site of his homestead on Goodfellow Road in Brighton. Charlie moved to the area with his family in 1934 and eventually took over his father’s farm, raising beef cattle and horses until 2005, when he broke his hip at the

age of 85. He became a keen observer of nature and spent time building bird nesting boxes as well as feeding deer and other animals says long-time friend Steve Flindall. “Charlie did not have a lot but willingly shared what he had,” said Flindall. “He was a great cook and anyone who visited, and there were a lot of visitors, would be treated to pie, cake, cookies—even a meal—along with coffee.” “He could cook a full course meal for his many friends, as good as any female,” added niece Gayle Fox, at the ceremony. “He would love me to say that. He said it many times.” In the early 1950s, photography became a passion. Through his association with the Trenton Camera Club, Charlie won many Canadian Photographic Association of Canada awards. When Fox joined the club in 1978, she saw, first hand, how Charlie “was admired and held in high regard by the rest of the members.” “I was surprised at times just how important he was to the camera club,” she said.

Woodlot Conference lures wood workers and tree nuts

EMC Lifestyles - Quinte West - The recent Trenton Woodlot Conference was a place to learn about everything from wooden bowls to burls. “I carve bowls from burls,” said Dave Sexsmith from Napanee. “Burls are like a tree with a wart.” He said he also makes designs from hollow trees. He uses hard maple, butternut, cedar and ash. “I look for weird things in the wood,” he said. “Some-

times it works out, sometimes it doesn’t.” Dave has been coming to the Woodlot Conference for six years. He does more than sell his products. “Each year it’s a reunion,” he said. “We all know each other. There are a lot of good speakers too.” He says each year people buy his wood bowls and sometimes they even bring him burls. “It’s a nice event,” he said. “We’re all tree people. We all like wood. It’s a friendly crowd.”

Wade Knight, a field advisor with Trees Ontario, offered information about a planting program sponsored by the province. Anyone with at least 2.5 acres of land can sign up to get trees planted on their land. The goal is to plant 50 million trees by 2025. The program started in 2008 and works with local partners, such as Lower Trent Conservation. “We sell small seedlings, ten to sixteen inches,” he said. “Our partners do a site inspection and make recommendations on what type of tree to plant.” He says they mostly use conifers including white pine, white spruce, Norway spruce and white cedar. There is some burr oak and red oak which are native to

the region to add wildlife habitat diversity. The seedlings are purchased with a 70 per cent subsidy. “Trees help with climate change, create habitat and aid in long-term rural economy,” he said. “They also protect the watershed.” All the trees are planted in the spring. More information can be found at <> or contact Lower Trent Conservation for details. “We want to get the word out,” Knight said. Laird “the Stickman” Nelson from Codrington also had a display with walking sticks. He uses poplar with a honeysuckle vine and yellow cedar on top.

“The Old Boy upstairs makes them,” Nelson says. “I just clean ‘em up.” He says his walking sticks are 100 per cent natural. He finds them in forests and uses any species; maple, birch, willow, ash, oak or pine. “I look for the ones with vines around them,” he explains. “I find them and cut the vine off, cut the wood

and peel the bark off. Then I let it dry for two years, sanding it four times and polyurethane it three times, sanding between the second and third coats.” “It takes a fair bit of time,” he acknowledges. “Up to six hours.” Nelson is a retired forester with Domtar, but is also a farmer and has his own woodlot. He shows his walking sticks in some other craft shows but likes to come to the conference. “Here everybody knows everybody,” he says with a smile. Another display was by Doug MacKenzie of Bancroft who had canoe paddles, axe handles, rolling pins and bread boards, all handmade from cherry, ash or birdseye wood. “I make them right from the logs,” he said. “I’ve been doing this for 35 years.”

Environmentally friendly installations for snakes and turtles By Richard Barkosky

Preparation of the snake hibernaculum starts with careful placement of blocks and slabs below the frost line for winter hibernation. Photo: Richard Barkosky

has been creating such sites for 15 years, and played a major, hands-on role in this development. The hibernaculum site is on a south-facing slope to ensure warmth, and between a pond and a large number of rocks where snakes enjoy sunning themselves. In an excavation approximately 12 feet square and to a depth of six feet, that is, below the frost line, broken slabs and construction blocks were carefully placed along the bottom and up against the steep sides. This is to allow entrance, while preventing access for predators. On top of this, smaller stones and gravel were placed to seal off and protect the passageways and chambers below. Earth backfill then was piled higher than the surrounding landscape to

divert surface water and snow melt as much as possible. Corners of the excavation incorporated four-inch plastic corrugated tubing leading directly down to the reptilian condos, the stone and concrete surrounding them allowing alternative entrance choices for the prospective hibernators. As a final touch, additional posts and rocks partly obscure these entrances to provide shelter and protection from predators. One possible addition would be a data-logger to monitor temperature and humidity. Wilson and Wilkins would like to thank both Lyman Holmes Excavating for donating the concrete construction rubble, and the Toronto Zoo for their involvement with this project.

Hi Ho... Hi Ho... it’s off to work we go

EMC Lifestyles - Tweed A turtle nesting beach and a snake hibernaculum have been installed in the Otter Creek area east of Tweed. Environmentalists John Wilson and Denice Wilkins have shared their property for many years with a variety of local wildlife, including both turtles and snakes. On learning that nearly all of the eight varieties of Ontario turtles are at risk, some severely, Wilkins’ response took the form of, “What can I do?” Researching the situation led her to an Environment Canada publication written largely by employees of the Toronto Zoo. One of the co-authors is Julia Phillips, Turtle Conservation Specialist and Adopt-a-pond Coordinator at the Toronto Zoo, who came to the site to oversee the construction. Preparation of the turtle nesting beach began by removing the vegetation from an open rectangular area about 40 by 20 feet not far from a pond. This location was chosen as it is part of a turtle’s natural habitat, and is relatively free from predators. With grass and roots removed, a fibre cloth was put down to minimize plant growth, and the area was then covered with alternating layers of sand and gravel, some of it mixed together, as turtles are known for favouring both materials when laying their eggs. John and Denice will be preparing protective cages for the eggs to discourage the inevitable raccoons. Construction of the snake hibernaculum was under the direction of Bob Johnson, Curator of Reptiles and Amphibians at the Toronto Zoo for over 30 years. Johnson

All that Grey Cup hype is for real By Jack Evans

Many thousands of fans formed a human chain parade from Varsity Stadium to the Rogers Centre football field Sunday before the game, many taking turns carrying the large and heavy Grey Cup. Photo: Jack Evans

EMC Sports - Over the past few days, it has been simply impossible for Canadians to overlook the news and hype about the 100th Grey Cup Canadian Football League game here. You can call it a passion for Canada’s unique three-down game of football; you can call it a national party; but it is hard to play down the impact of this special annual event in Canada’s calendar. The fact that it was a 100th anniversary was significant, but it was only an add-on to an established tradition of a Canada-coming-together party. On the football field, the conflict may be brutally bone-bruising, but for the fans, who are equally passionate about their respective teams, it is a camaraderie with colours and teams as opposite as they can get clinking glasses and sharing memories about the past season and past Grey Cup games. Some vie for how many Grey Cup events they have attended, with one man boasting he had attended almost 60. Besides the eight teams that now comprise the league, one prominent

group of fans that has been active for several years is called the “Schooners,” still promoting a new team based on the east coast. Confirmation that the former Ottawa Roughriders franchise will be back starting in 2014 also sparked a special party for their fans. They gathered in an out-of-the-way pub Saturday night several dozen strong, wearing their black and red colours and eagerly anticipating their team’s return. Some of their sweaters read: “Undefeated since 1996,” (the last year for the former Rough Riders.)  One man, asked if he was ready for 2014, said: “We’re already tailgating. I’ve got my seats.” To show the lasting affection even some U.S. fans have for the Canadian version of football, one man and his wife stalked the party rooms wearing the colours and carrying the flag of the former Baltimore team that was part of a brief attempt to expand the CFL into the United States a few years ago. Garish costumes at all events and around the downtown streets of Toronto abounded, including the famous Saskatch-

Horses and Calgary Stampeder fans always go together, as this photo illustrates.

ewan flame man, the Blues Brothers and more. One Argos fan at a street gathering at Dundas Square sported a blue moustache and beard. That square was one of three major activity areas arranged for the weekend by the City of Toronto. It was a rallying point Sunday for the special Grey Cup parade.  Perhaps not your floats and bands parade, it started at Varsity Stadium and picked up thousands of fans over its five-kilometre route to the Rogers Centre for the game. Fans took turns carrying the big cup itself along the route.

Starting a conversation and making new friends was as easy as talking to the nearest costumed fan of any team. Whether their own team was playing or not did not stop hundreds, if not thousands, of fans from all eight teams sharing in the fun. Let’s not forget it was also the Christmas season. The beautifully decorated windows in the old Eaton’s store featuring dozens of Victorian era characters and sets, many of them electro-mechanically activated, brought back fond childhood memories of trips there with my parents when I was a child. The Rogers Centre was sold out, more than 50,000 seats, months in advance because of the special 100th event. Officials said they could have sold it out all over again had seating been available. Pep cheers, cheerleader routines and just plain entertainment were featured at special party rooms set up by the various teams. In the Spirit of Edmonton room in the Sheraton, the walls rattled as the 25-strong City of Winnipeg Pipe Band paraded in and put on a show. Cheer-leading routines at an all-team demonstration Saturday showed the girls have to do a lot more than wiggle their tummies. Many routines require high athletic skills, almost circus-like. A few now include up to several young men to add some muscle to the high-inthe-air tosses and pyramids. As for the game, the Argonauts broke Toronto’s losing streak when it comes to major sports, crushing the highly favoured Calgary Stampeders by 35 - 22. The Calgary score is actually inflated by a last seconds touchdown the Argonauts essentially gave the Stampeders as their own lead at that point was overpowering. Next year, it’s Regina, and if you’ve never heard of the Saskatchewan slogan of “sky of blue, sea of green,” you’ll see it there for sure. If you have a few days free in your calendar late next November, mark it down. Even if you can’t get tickets to the game, this writer can guarantee you will still have a lot of fun.

Empire is a big cheese again at the Royal Winter Fair EMC News - Campbellford - Empire Cheese and Butter Co-op has more than the festive season to celebrate. This Canadian company that has been in business since 1876 has won first prize at the Royal Winter Fair 2012 for its marble cheddar. Empire Cheese is no stranger to winning awards at the fair beginning with its grand champion and reserve champion wins back in 2008. Since then the cheese factory has been to the fair every year and always brought home several awards each time. In 2009 the company won four awards including first place for their extra mild cheddar. In 2010 it took second- and third-place wins for their cheddar varieties then last year it was a first again for the marble cheddar (among other third-, fourth- and fifth-place wins). This year the co-op also won third for its extra old white and third for its medium white. For cheesemaker Mark Erwin the wins are another testament to the quality of the product. “It’s stiff competition at

the fair because you have your Parmalats and other big plants, many from Quebec and PEI,” he explained. There were 12 other companies competing against them at the fair. “The bigger companies have many cheeses in their grading program to choose from. We have a limited amount to choose from,” commented cheesemaker Erwin. Even with those odds the company made a conscious decision to compete against larger companies. “The Royal used to have a small plant category but we said no, we’ll compete with the big guys,” said Erwin. “It’s a benchmark, competing against them. We like to go to the show because it tells you where you are at in the industry,” he added. Besides it’s fun to meet the other cheesemakers he said, even though he admits they don’t swap secrets about their products. The success of Empire Cheese, he told EMC, is based on “a good selection of culture and we always use clean fresh milk, local milk.” It’s all about quality con-

trol and “doing everything at the right time. We stick to the quality and consistency to win.” From start to finish it takes five hours to make their cheese. “And don’t forget the natural aging process,” he said. Naturally aged cheese takes one year to create old cheese. Erwin is trained in dairy science and took a cheese making course at Kemptville College. His work as a cheesemaker started out as a summer job and has progressed to a fulltime career. He enjoys working at Empire Cheese and Butter Co-op with its 135-year tradition. The equipment is “vintage.” “It is an artisan way of making cheese,” he said. “This equipment is the same as it was in the 1950s. We do it purposely to have a certain type of cheese,” he admits with pride. “The heritage of the company is retained.“ Originally there were 20 farmers who owned and ran the co-op. Today there are nine and they are all local farmers.

Members have to be milking farmers. Their cheese is sold at their outlet south of Campbellford and in local grocery stores. “We do ship right across Canada with a lot going to

Alberta and B.C., especially at Christmas time,” said Vicki McMillan, sales rep. She spent four days at the Royal too promoting the company. “We have gift packages for

the Christmas season,” she said, the ever consummate sales person. For more information about the Empire Cheese coop go to <www.empirecheese. ca/about-us>.

April 30th, 1938 – November 24th, 2012 (74) Our beloved Wahnieta: You will be forever missed and forever remembered in the hearts of everyone who knew you. She was quite possibly the sweetest of sweeties. She passed away surrounded by family on Saturday November 24th after a short battle with lung cancer. She was born on April 30th, 1938 in Cordova Mines, Ontario, where she was raised by her Grandma Lizzy and grew up with her little sister Shirley (Pressick). There she met her husband Alan Mack, who she married on December 14th, 1957. Soon after they welcomed their children; Richard Mack (Cindy), Suzzanne Smith (Jerry), Tammie Paxton (Ron), Cindy Mack (Dave), John Mack (Carol), Anthony Mack (predeceased) and Diane Mack (Bruce). It is surely no secret how much they adored and loved their ‘momma’, a.k.a. ‘Weiner’. Her grandchildren Joey, Lisa, Danny, Nicholas, Amber, Krystle, Jimmy, Nathan, Eric, A.J., and Abigail will miss her dearly as she was more than just a grandma, and often a best friend and second mother. Her love will also live on in her four great grandchildren. Wahnieta’s life will be celebrated with a private service at the United Church in her hometown of Cordova Mines with her family and friends on December 22nd. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the Ontario Lung Association, or (416)864-9911. You may also send your thoughts and prayers to Bowan Funeral Home (519)352-2390. The sun has lost some of its shine. The stars will twinkle less. The moon has lost some luster. The world is not the same. A piece has been lost. Our Wahnieta as she was on this earth is gone. Heaven CL417101 now is brighter. We will miss her.

Lorne Gordon CarLeton CARLETON, Lorne Gordon In loving memory of a dear husband, dad and Poppy who passed away November 29th, 2010 We knew little that morning That God was going to call your name. In life we loved you dearly, In death we do the same. It broke our hearts to lose you, You did not go alone, For part of us went with you, That day God called you home. You left us beautiful memories, Your love is still our guide: And though we cannot see you, You are always at our side. Our family chain is broken, And nothing seems the same, But as God calls us one by one, The chain will link again. We each carry you in our heart every second of every day and miss you so very much Laura Anne, Cheryl, Terry, Dawn, Tammy, Rob and families

Perfect Pie Queen learned it all from mama By Kate Everson

EMC News - Trenton When Lorraine Telford was a little girl, she watched her mother bake pies. She watched her older sisters bake pies. And when she grew up, she knew exactly what to do. “I started baking pies just like my mother taught me,” she said from her Farley Crescent home. “And I started winning awards.” Lorraine won the top award in the Perfect Pie contest at Warkworth this month for her chocolate brownie cream pie in the Seniors Division. She also won top prize in the filled category with her tropical cream pie. “The chocolate was made with layers of brownies at the bottom, chocolate filling, whipped cream and shaved chocolate on top,” she said. The tropical cream was made with bananas, coconut cream, pineapple and whipped cream with toasted coconut on top. This may have not been exactly like her mother would have made it, Lorraine admits. She takes old recipes and adds and changes them to suit her taste. She also gets excellent guidance from friends and family who agree to “taste test” all of her recipes. “It’s all trial and error,” she says. “I bring the neighbours a piece of pie to taste. They don’t seem to

mind.” Lorraine still uses the same recipe for the crust that her mother used, choosing Tenderflake lard instead of shortening. She notes that in the early days her mother might have used bacon fat. “They used any kind of fat they had,” she said. Warkworth has a perfect pie contest every November with over 90 entries in four categories: filled, fruit, savoury and seniors. Lorraine has won there before and at other events, but this is the first time she entered the seniors division. “For the seniors it can be any type of pie,” she

explains. “There are three judges who come from all over. They judge it based on presentation, filling and crust. The crust is the most important.” Lorraine won her first pie contest ten years ago at Brighton Applefest, then she went on to the Warkworth event, now in its 33rd year. She also entered in the two years that Trenton had a pie contest at the old town hall through the Trent Port Historical Society. Lorraine has created her own cookbook of recipes from her perfect pies. It is now in its second printing at J&B Printing and she sells it out of her home.

“It’s in large print for seniors,” she said. “Most of the people who bake pies these days are seniors.” The cookbook includes wonderful mouthwatering photographs of her winning pies. She has several best pie recipes including her overall best pie of lemon meringue, a chocolate raspberry cream pie and a maple syrup pie that sold for $350 at auction. Call her to pick up a cookbook at 613-394-4794. Lorraine Telford has done it again. She took home the ribbon for Best Pie contest in Warkworth this year for her chocolate brownie cream pie.

Trenton Santa Claus Parade winners EMC News - The Trenton Santa Claus Parade delighted hundreds of spectators with many floats, marching bands and entertainers this past weekend. With the winter chill in the air, everyone was in high spirits and enthusiastic crowds lined the streets from Centennial Park to Queen Street to see what is undoubtedly one of the best parades in the Quinte Region. “It is amazing to see the effort and creativity from businesses, schools and community groups,” says Suzanne Andrews, chamber manager. Well over 80

floats were decorated for the holidays as they lit up the streets and kicked off the holiday season. “This parade could not happen without support and generous donations from local businesses, service groups and individuals. They make the Trenton Santa Claus Parade possible,” says Andrews. We would like to thank Brian Swartman and Brad Graham and all the volunteer firefighters from Station 1 for ensuring the floats were all lined up on time and the parade ran smoothly. A special thank you to

Wayne Campbell from Montrose Inn, his continued dedication helps to make this parade a success every year. Wayne volunteers countless hours to prepare for Santa’s arrival to Quinte West.  We were able to keep everyone warm while they waited in the parade lineup. Thank you to Tim Hortons for donating hot chocolate and Timbits and for the Lions club for providing hot food and hot drinks. The Quinte West Chamber of Commerce would like to extend a huge thank-you to all the businesses, service clubs, community organi-

zations, schools and volunteers that took part in this year’s parade. A group of judges have determined the 2012 parade award winners. A ceremony will be held at City Hall on December 7 at 11 a.m. The 2012 Parade Winners: Best Youth Float - St. Peter’s School; Theme: The World “Peace on Earth,” Sponsored by: Victory Trophy Best Community Service Float - First Pentecostal Church; Theme: Glorious Noel, Sponsored by: Electro Cables

EMC Section B - Thursday, November 29, 2012

Student beats odds and is recognized for his courage “He was in a wheelchair and now he’s walking, what progress! I am amazed at his recovery,” said his mom. Read is now studying to complete his Grade 12. “I think it’s very good, a neat honour,” said Read, speaking to the media after accepting the award. When asked about his plans for the future he said, “I don’t know yet what I want to do. My ultimate goals: hopefully to finish high school and get on with my life,” he said. “I’m good with my hands so I’d like to do some kind of woodworking class or shop at the school,” he added. Read is already a co-op student training at Rona in Campbellford. “He did some woodworking before but now his hand shakes a lot,” said his mom standing by his side with his stepdad Jim Bryan. They talked about how Read “was a normal boy before the accident,” doing what all high school students did. “He liked woodworking and four-wheeling and he did okay in school.” Meghan MacLeod of MindWorks Peterborough was by his side as well. “We’re a company that works with people with acquired brain injuries. I am with Kyle four days a week 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. I go with him to lunch and to Rona for his coop placement and more,” she told EMC. When asked about his prognosis his mom said, “The

EMC Lifestyles - Campbellford - Hugs and tears followed the presentation of the Stewart Davies Memorial Award at the annual Celebration of Excellence ceremony held recently at Campbellford District High School. “When he got his award I cried,” said Kyle Read’s mom, Elaine. She watched as her son, who was severely injured in an accident in January 2011, walked to the podium on his own and accepted the prestigious award. The Stewart Davies Memorial Award recognizes a student who has confronted adversity with courage, perseverance and determination. It was presented by Francis Davies. For Kyle Read, 19, it was a very special occasion. “He almost died,” said his mom after the ceremony. She explained that her son suffered severe brain swelling and was in a coma for a couple of weeks following the accident, amazing doctors with his tenacity. “He was a passenger in a truck that went off the road on the Eighth Line just around the corner from the house,” she said. Her son spent six months in hospital, first at St. Michael’s Hospital in Toronto, known for its trauma and neurosurgery program. He just completed six months of physiotherapy and is back in school.
