Council wants Humane Society to explain proposed new fee By Bill Freeman

Snowmobiles take to the ice of Moira Lake.

EMC Sports - Cordova Mines - It would take much more than “snowpocalypse” to slow down Hockey Day in Cordova. A day after Mother Nature dumped 30 centimetres of snow on the area, and after hours of volunteer snowclearing, eight teams took to the ice on Cordova’s splendid outdoor rink celebrating the grassroots of Canada’s national game while vying for Country Classic bragging rights during the fourth annual three-on-three event. While Don Cherry, in his Oz-like emerald green suit, was in Peterborough for the Scotiabank Hockey Day in Canada festival, there was plenty of pond hockey spirit in Cordova Mines. “This goes back to the roots of it,” tourney organizer Tim Beckford told the Northwest EMC. “A little skinny on the equipment, you kind of go back to the basics and take it back to the pond level kind of hockey. It’s a lot of fun and it goes back to the roots; shovel off

EMC News - Havelock Township council wants the Peterborough Humane Society to explain to them face-to-face why it wants municipalities to agree to a proposed new $100 a month fee. The monthly fee, which the Humane Society wants to begin collecting this year, took council by surprise coming on the very day it finalized its 2013 budget. The society says the additional fee over and above the $150 per animal intake fee and $200 afterhours intake fee, which council approved, will help offset the cost of care and cleaning of dogs brought into the pound by the animal control officer. “There may be a legiti-

mate reason why they need to increase it, I don’t know, [but] it’s a $1,200 increase in a budget that’s already passed,” Andrea Loyst, township planning assistant and bylaw enforcement officer, told council last week. “It may be beneficial if Mr. Anderson [Duncan Anderson, director of operations for the Humane Society] makes a presentation to council,” she said. “The day [December 17] he actually came out [to talk about the fee changes] was the day council was deciding its final budget so it was a very short time frame to consider this,” Loyst added. There is no change to $150 intake fee but the after-hours fee was increased

by $50 to $200. For the $150 the Humane Society vaccinates, de-worms and gives the dog a general physical examination. The society will determine if the dog needs extra veterinary care like surgeries; any additional veterinary procedures are charged to the owner of the dog if it’s reclaimed within seven days. If the dog isn’t collected after seven days the fee is charged to the municipality. In recent years, says Loyst, HBM has never had to pay any extra fee. In the past year 12 dogs were taken to the Humane Society pound from HBM by animal control officer Debra Haigh. “It fluctuates between ten to 15 dogs [a year],”

Loyst said. “We’ve already had one dog dropped off this year.” The Humane Society pays staff overtime if a dog is dropped off after hours, Loyst explained, but Haigh told her it is “rare that a dog is dropped off after hours.” “Our staff asked what if we don’t pay [the monthly fee]; is there any way they can refuse us?” Because there is no other intake facility the Peterborough Humane Society must accept dogs brought into the pound by the animal officer. Not every municipality in the county agrees with the Humane Society’s proposed monthly fee, Loyst noted. “If they’re going down

that road [monthly fee] that’s a discussion that townships should have collectively,” Mayor Ron Gerow said. “That’s a discussion that definitely needs to happen. We have an agreement with them and what they are talking about is changing that. “It’s only fair to municipalities that if they want to change the agreement that that discussion happen a year prior and we have already passed our budget,” said Gerow. “I can certainly see the pressures and understand everybody’s [need] for money but this is a business matter between the municipalities and the pound and there needs to be a discussion and a presentation.”

a piece of pond and away you go.” Except in Cordova Mines they have arguably one of the nicest outdoor rinks in Peterborough County thanks to the tireless work of the community’s Recreation Association and supporting partners who were responsible for the creation of an outdoor pad complete with boards, nets and lights. “It’s a little bit better than a pond here,” said Beckford. “We’ve got a great surface; it’s nice and flat with a well here to flood it. You couldn’t ask for a better venue right here in Cordova.” The snow storm made things “kind of rough” the night before the tourney, he admitted, but volunteers spent six hours overnight and a couple of hours Saturday morning clearing the rink; with brilliant sunshine overhead it was a gorgeous day for outdoor hockey. The tournament raises between $300 and $600 for the association and maintenance of the facility, Beckford said. This past year they spent $1,400 refurbishing the pad’s surface. “Unless it’s bright white it just will not hold the ice. We had difficulty last year with the sun kicking the heck out of the surface. This year we’ve had no problem with sun; the sun can start hitting it now and we don’t

start melting out.” Otherwise the rink is in excellent shape and money raised will be banked for future work. “Probably the surface will need it in another three years.” Beckford loves showing off the rink to his friends from the GTA. “They love the venue and setup here; they keep asking about it year after year.”

Northwest EMC - Thursday, February 14, 2013


Mayor slams government’s handling of Trent Severn Waterway their continued viability.” Williams noted that affected municipalities and private business owners have been working together over the past number of months to develop solutions. One of the proposed solutions is the development of a new governance model. EMC has reported on this issue. The group which met in late January includes MP Rick Norlock Northumberland-Quinte West; MP Daryl Kramp Prince Edward-Hastings; MP Barry Devolin HaliburtonKawartha Lakes-Brock; MP Dean Del Mastro Peterborough; MP Bruce Stanton Simcoe North; and Marc Ackert, Ontario Waterway Cruises Inc. “Hats off to Mayor John Williams. He’s been a real staunch supporter of the group,” said Macmillan. The document the group produced outlines the 2013 season of operation and the new schedule which provides a reduced level of service. It also includes information regarding a new alternative

fee proposal in relation to the proposal identified by Parks Canada. They hope to meet again today (February 14) to work on a way to get federal officials to re-examine the proposal with the intent to submit a proposed fee structure and proposed level of service to Park Canada prior to the consultation deadline. “I support a lot of things our current government has done over the last few years but this is something that just shocks me. I understand many of the challenges of the Trent Severn Waterway but it’s an absolute vacuum for lack of funding,” Macmillan told council, noting there has not been infrastructure investment into the canal in more than 50 years. “These are national treasures and they are systematically being dismantled and gutted with what’s being proposed by the federal government,” he said. “The plan from the federal government is asking for too much too fast and it will just kill the canal.”

Snow storm a factor in serious crash EMC News - Havelock Heavy snow was a factor in a serious head-on collision west of Havelock that sent a 22-year-old Peterborough man to Sunnybrook Trauma Centre with lifethreatening injuries. Peterborough County OPP say that around 7:18 p.m. February 8 a fourdoor Toyota Corolla travelling west on Highway 7 crossed onto the snowcovered north shoulder which caused the car to skid sharply to the left and

enter the eastbound lane in front of a Prostar International Tractor towing a GREA trailer just west of the 11th Line of Belmont. The truck driver braked to avoid the Toyota but collided with it with the impact sending both vehicles into the south ditch with the tractor portion resting on the CP rail tracks. The driver of the Toyota had to be extricated from his car by firefighters, police say. He was transported to


The girls were located and arrested at a local group home. One bottle of vodka had been consumed by the girls and the other bottle was turned over to OPP. A 15-year-old female youth from Campbellford was released on a promise to appear and an undertaking given to an officer in charge for the offence of theft under $5,000. The accused is scheduled to appear in the Ontario Court of Justice Youth Court on Monday, March 11, in

Long-time volunteer “utterly amazed” by surprise party By Bill Freeman

EMC News - Norwood As they streamed through the door at the Community Care office in Norwood Ferne DeBaeremaeker really didn’t think all that much about the growing crowd, after all it was a Diner’s Club day and lunchtime was drawing nearer. But suddenly from the back of the room and along the sides of the New to You racks came the distinctive chorus of “Happy Birthday” and a cake with candles emerged and was placed in front of the speechless office volunteer. Ferne, in her twentythird year as a Community Care volunteer, had turned 80 and there was no way her friends and colleagues were about to forget that milestone. Along with the cake there was a presentation by Asphodel-Norwood Mayor Doug Pearcy who never fails

to recognize the important work volunteers do in the community and the County Road 45 office is a bustling centre of volunteer can-do spirit and desire. “Ferne is another one of those folks who are like an institution here at Community Care,” program assistant Kelly Small said. “She’s been with us an awful long time and she knows all the ins and outs so people are always pleased to see her on the desk,” Small told the Northwest EMC during the celebration. “She’s such a sweet and helpful person, we’re very lucky to have her and it’s a pleasure having her here.” Ferne is not the only octogenarian who volunteers with the Asphodel-Norwood organization and Small is unstinting in her praise of individuals who continue to be active contributors to the

community well into their eighties. “We have several who have reached milestone ages and they’re all here giving back to their community and helping people. It says something about the strength of the folks that we have volunteer here.” It also represents a shining example of Community Care’s core mandate “empowering people to remain independent.” “I was utterly amazed,” the very surprised birthday celebrant said. “I didn’t expect to see anything like this. “I saw all these people coming in and wondered what was going on and then I thought ‘It’s Diner’s this morning’ so it was quite a surprise when they started to sing Happy Birthday,” she said. Ferne began with Community Care in 1990, dur-

HBM wants to meet new premier By Bill Freeman

EMC News - Havelock The fact Ontario’s new Premier Kathleen Wynne and her family spend their summers in Havelock-Belmont-Methuen might help council arrange a meeting with the province’s first female first minister. Or so council thinks. Councillors agreed to send Wynne a congratulatory note along with one to Peterborough MPP Jeff Leal who becomes Minister of Rural Affairs in the premier’s new 27-member cabinet. Wynne herself will take on the Minister of

Agriculture portfolio along with her duties as premier. “Because we feel very close from that perspective we might like to have a discussion with regards to issues of long-term care, in particular our [own plan],” Gerow said during Monday’s council meeting. The municipality has had a plan on the books for close to two years that would facilitate the building of a 128-bed nursing home on an 18-acre property off Old Norwood Road that has already been zoned for a seniors-related development. It could also include

a medical centre, assisted living units and geared-toincome seniors apartments. A day-care centre and other “integrated community opportunities” are being considered as part of the proposal. Township council has been frustrated by a lack of clear answers to a steady and consistent stream of questions to the government about provincial long-term-care bed allocations that could be picked up and used with the HBM project, pegged at between $13 and $14 million, which would be privately funded

and operated. “I totally agree with your comments,” Councillor Larry Ellis said, noting her family’s enjoyment of HBM’s summer lifestyle makes the invitation “appropriate.” Also along that vein, Councillor Jim Martin suggested they ask Leal to set up a meeting with David Orazietti, the new Minister of Natural Resources. Council and the municipality would like to bring to an end the ongoing problems they have had with campers who use crown land in certain parts of the

township. They have been pressing the MNR for answer on that issue. “We never got an answer back on what they’re planning for the summer,” said Martin. “I think we need to keep on that; I know it’s winter time and it’s quiet but it hasn’t gone away.” Both the premier and the Minister of Natural Resources “need to be reminded there is an issue out here and we need some help,” said Martin. “You’re quite right, it has not gone away,” Gerow said.

The mayor added that at an Eastern Ontario Municipalities Conference he had a conversation with Wynne, then the Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing, who told him that she has “witnessed and seen exactly what the problems are.” Council agreed to write Leal a letter requesting a meeting with the Minister Orazietti. Former Natural Resources Minister Linda Jeffrey is the new Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing and chair of the cabinet.

Bus decision rankles, council wants to meet with trustee the bus from Peterborough to NDHS which could be used by students interested in NDHS programs but living outside its boundary area. Three students from outside the NDHS boundary are currently using the bus which will cease to run beginning this September. Parents will have to make their own arrangements to transport their children to the hockey academy. “Maybe that bus has a small impact on the program or maybe it has a large impact but I don’t like reading about the cancellation of programs or portions of programs in the paper,” Sharpe said. It disturbed Sharpe that

a decision like that could be made “without any of our community’s input, both from Asphodel-Norwood and Havelock-BelmontMethuen.” “I think we need to be a little proactive here and invite our trustee to council,” he said. Sharpe is also a member of the Friends of Norwood District High School and noted that Patterson has not been able to attend those meetings. “They have some small suggestions and in the future it is going to be an important thing to have the trustee on side as we move forward,” he said. “Eventually NDHS is going to end up in an [accommodation]

review and the loss of that bus from Peterborough to Norwood may have a significant impact on whether the school stays open or not.” “We need to be continually informed about what’s going on in our schools,” Sharpe stressed. “Some of that should come from our trustee.” “I know I have a lot of questions about some very specific things,” he added. “This is the place where we need to have that discussion.” Mayor Ron Gerow said he has spoken to Patterson and she has assured him that she wants to be put on a future council agenda.


EMC News - Havelock Concerned about the loss of a dedicated bus that travelled from Peterborough to Norwood District High School to support its acclaimed Hockey Canada Skills Academy, township council has asked for a meeting with local public school board trustee Shirley Patterson. “I’m just a little surprised at the way decisions are continually being made at the board level,” Deputymayor Andy Sharpe said during Monday’s council meeting.

Letters to the editor

May I have permission to rant please

Dear Editor, I sympathize with Terry Bush regarding his Hydro bill. While my bill is not as big as his, it is usually

larger than other tenants in the apartment complex where I live who have the same appliances as I do. I’m sorry to ruin another

day for you, Mr. Bush, but I wonder if you realize you are paying the old GST on that debt reduction charge. Some years ago I was actu-

Water is a regional issue, not global Dear Editor, After reading the article about the Blue Water Project presentation in one of our schools I was appalled that our children are being exposed to such unscientific fear mongering and social engineering. Kim Mcleod and Robert Palmer (leadership facilitators) presented to our children such mis-information as “Canada is the third largest supplier of fresh water in the world.” Rubbish! Canada has (about) one third of the world’s fresh water and it is against Canadian law to export bulk water. We supply nobody (except ourselves) any appreciable amount of water.

They further encouraged the kids not to use so much water showering and brushing their teeth or drinking water from plastic bottles. How is reducing personal hygiene and encouraging dehydration going to help the water supply half way around the world? The availability of water is a regional issue, not global. Canada has no water shortage (although some areas are dryer than others, as also applies to the whole world), and there is just as much water in the world today as there was yesterday. We don’t “use it up,” we just move it around a little bit. It is disingenuous and unconscionable to teach that any

conservation efforts here will make a difference to the water supply somewhere in Africa or wherever. The water cycle is completely ignored, and until that natural process is somehow halted there will be no fresh water shortage in Canada. Global warming (if there is any) will only increase the amount of evaporization and consequent rainfall. This blatant brainwashing of our youth is unacceptable as is the facilitator’s encouragement of group think and globalism. Defund these charlatans and get them out of our schools. Fred Quarrie, Marmora

ally able to speak to a person at Hydro One instead of a machine and asked why I had to pay GST when I hadn’t been supplied with any goods or service in with that debt reduction charge. I was told Hydro One didn’t understand that either so they were having discussions with the federal government to have the GST removed. As far as I can tell, it is still there. I also asked if my grandchildren would be paying for this debt when they were seniors. I was told the charge was well on its way to being paid. This was long before the HST was brought in and there is no sign of the debt being paid. I have heard unsubstantiated rumours that Hydro One is Ontario Hydro reborn and has many of the same incompetents running it and they are busy building a new debt. Why are these people not accountable to the taxpayers? Unfortunately, today’s world is being run by greedy, incompetent overpaid people. Top bankers are

paid obscene amounts of money without producing anything, while the tellers get paid minimum rate or just above it; the public are gouged and the shareholders don’t get the returns on their investment that they deserve. The same is true for oil executives. It’s hard to imagine any company absorbing the huge fine levied after the Gulf oil spill, yet that oil company didn’t appear to miss a beat. First Nations chiefs live in luxury, getting paid more than the prime minister, while their band members live in squalor. These people are nothing more than mayors of very small communities, so why aren’t they paid the same as mayors? Why are they not accountable? We see sports “stars” being paid mega bucks thanks to the efforts of parasitic agents, while the fan earning a minimum wage gets hit at the gate to the stadium and in the pocket because of the high cost of everyday products that are over priced because of the cost of advertising that cre-

ates the revenue that pays these so-called athletes. Our health system is in disarray thanks to too many administrators and not enough doctors, nurses and technicians. I still can’t believe Mr. McGuinty’s government couldn’t find enough talented civil servants to administer the Health Ministry from within their ranks, so had to hire more people with all the necessary backup staff. Let’s hope “new broom” Wynne will rectify this particular waste and cancel the LHIN program. We hear over and over again that big salaries are required to attract the right people to do the job. I haven’t yet seen any evidence that this theory works. Maybe one day the UN will introduce a world wide law prohibiting the payment of huge salaries to anyone. Until that day, our leaders can do nothing in the face of special interest groups and professional lobbyists. Thanks for the chance to vent. Ken Chambers, Brighton


Confusion and anger over the future of Canada

A BIG THANK YOU to Smitty’s Appliances

“The little business man with the big heart”

Dear Editor, Phil Etter’s letter really had me confused … and angry. He starts off complimenting Alan Coxwell for his longwinded and meandering letter of the previous week about the current political climate in Canada in which he lays blame on Stephen Harper for everything from causing Native leaders to starve, to selling Canada to the Chinese, to changing our democracy into a fundamentalist theocracy, to having a hand in hastening the “End Days.” Who knew one man could single-handedly cause such mayhem? After reading Etter’s letter a second time, it became apparent that his argument wasn’t with Harper so much

as it was with the provincial Liberals concerning Bill 115 which forced petulant Ontario teachers to accept the status quo and get back to work. Etter’s contention, although unclear from his rambling prose, seems to be that implementation of Bill 115 was somehow undemocratic (it was democratically voted on and passed by a majority of MPPs in the legislature) and that concerned citizens need to rise up and “lobby the powers that be to rescind the bill” (it has already been repealed by the provincial government). Readers need to educate themselves on the “far reaching and frightening ramifications” of Bill 115 he

writes. What really galled me about Etter’s letter, however, was his comparing the Ontario government’s use of Bill 115 on teachers to what happened in Nazi Germany under Hitler. Is he seriously implying that imposing a generous contract on teachers who refused to negotiate with the government will somehow lead to fascism and genocide? We’ve all heard the slippery slope arguments before (usually from union bosses), but whenever someone plays the Nazi card we know they’ve run out of reasons and have lost the argument. To quote Joseph Goebbels, Nazi Propaganda Minister: “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.” Paul MacDonald, Warkworth

EMC Editorial When somebody is murdered and his killer is unknown, the detective’s first step is to ask: who had a motive? In classic murder-mystery novels and films, the usual answer was: almost everyGwynne Dyer body. That’s the only way to keep the plot going for 250 pages/90 minutes. But in real life, the suspects are generally few, and pretty obvious. So who killed Chokri Belaid? The Tunisian human rights lawyer and political leader was assassinated outside his home as he left for work on February 6, and the country immediately erupted in violent anti-government demonstrations. His wife Basma said she would file murder charges against the ruling Ennahda Party and its leader, and the mobs in the street chanted the mantra of the Arab revolutions, “the people want the fall of the regime.” But the regime in question is the democratically elected government of a country that has already had its revolution. Tunisia was the birthplace of the “Arab spring.” It held its first free election in October 2011, to elect an assembly to write the new constitution. The winner, as in a number of other Arab countries, was a moderate Islamic party. The Ennahda-led transitional government has made some mistakes, as you would expect of inexperienced politicians, but it has shown no desire to subvert democracy. Indeed, the Islamic party formed a coalition with two secular centre-left parties after the election, and in the weeks before Belaid’s murder it was deep in talks to broaden the coalition and bring other secular parties in. Those other parties have now walked out of the talks, demanding the cancellation of the results of the 2011 election. That certainly does not serve Ennahda’s interests, and the violent protests in the streets are even more of a problem, since they might trigger a military intervention to “restore order.” (The Tunisian army is strongly pro-secularist.) In terms of motive, Ennahda has none. So who would actually benefit from killing Chokri Belaid? One suspect is the Salafists, religious extremists who despise the Ennahda Party but absolutely hate militant secularists like Belaid. Many in the secular camp criticise Ennahda’s founder and leader, Rachid Ghannouchi, for failing to “crack down” when Salafist fanatics attack peaceful political gatherings, and he must bear some

blame here. But that’s still a long way from plotting a murder. Ghannouchi, like the leaders of other moderate Islamic parties across the Arab world, is reluctant to treat the Salafists as enemies (even though they are), because they both compete for the votes of pious Muslims. But he also argues, quite reasonably, that mass arrests and torture of Salafists in the style of the old regime is immoral and counter-productive. Just track down the ones who have committed specific crimes. Did the Salafists commit this particular crime? Possibly. Killing a militant secularist would be emotionally satisfying to them. But they are not actually the leading suspect in Shokri Belaid’s murder. The prime suspect is the old ruling elite, people who served the former dictator and have been deprived of power and opportunities for graft since the revolution. They can only regain their privileges if democracy fails, so violence in the streets, extreme political polarisation, the discrediting of an elected government, and a military take-over are precisely what they need. The Constitutional Democratic Rally, the party whose members loyally served the dictator and were lavishly rewarded by him, was banned after the revolution, and some of its senior members are in jail or in exile. But there are still plenty of others around, and it would be astonishing if they were not plotting a comeback. The only viable route to that goal is to stimulate a civil war between the secular democrats and the Islamic democrats. If this is where the logic takes us, why are some of the secular parties taking to the streets? In some cases, no doubt, grief and rage have led them astray. In other cases, however, there is probably the cynical calculation that this is the most effective way to hurt the Islamic party, even if it had nothing to do with the murder. Ennahda’s response has been less than coherent. Prime Minister Hamadi Jebali, shocked by the news of the murder, offered to replace the government with a cabinet of technocrats and call early elections, but the party’s founder and leader, Rachid Ghannoushi, said that the government should stay in place and track down the murderers. Jebali is sticking to his guns, and the outcome is far from clear. The whole thing is a mess, and Tunisians are justifiably concerned that their revolution has lost its way. But there is quite a good chance that they will be able to get the process of building a law-abiding democracy back on track without a major disaster, and it’s certainly far too soon to say that their revolution was a mistake.

Letter to the editor

Frustration levels will continue to be high

Dear Editor, Your recent article described your frustration with the electricity costs in this province, and so we all should be. Ontario Hydro, in its heyday, was competent in managing large expenditures. For example: the St. Lawrence Seaway project, the 25 to 60 cycle conversion of the whole generating system, and the tunnels underneath the city of Niagara Falls along with a new generating plant were completed with minimal energy rate increases which the public accepted with little criticism. Along came the nuclear era where there was no history upon which to predict actual costs. As it turned out the costs exceeded the planned estimates. Ontario Hydro was prepared to meet these costs with moderate rate increases as they had successfully done in the past. Unfortunately, the province stepped in and declared that there would be no rate increase, but they did not cancel any further construction. Obviously, construction continued with the costs accumulating. Eventually, the total costs were so significant that the province decided Ontario Hydro was out of control and the only way to maintain low rates, was to privatize it. This was the first blunder because private companies would take over each of the five divisions of the bro-

ken up Hydro. This meant we consumers were faced with five levels of management instead of just the one. Again, we consumers have no control over the wages and perks available to the new owners. Ontario Hydro had definite limits on these items. The next fiasco was to show a special “debt reduction” charge on each energy billing. My recollection was that this would be finalized by 2012. I remember reading, not too long ago, that our premier was quoted as saying that this charge would continue for three more years. Does anyone have a factual accounting of this? The next disaster is the “green energy” concept. Green energy is fundamentally okay, but the way it is set up is a sure way to self destruct this province. At the present time, we probably are paying about $.11 per kilowatt hour. Our supply company probably is paying about $.05 per kilowatt hour for the energy it is selling to us for the $.11. Since our government has decreed that the green energy be paid up to $.80 kilowatt hour, how can our supply company exist without increasing rates substantially to compensate? It doesn’t look like your frustrations will ever be satisfied. John Thomlinson, Belleville

I refuse to be trained By Terry Bush EMC Editorial - To those of you who might think my wife has something to do with the headline, sorry, not this time round. With our 27th anniversary coming up, she’s long since given up any hope of ever changing me, training me or rearranging me. It can’t be done. Funny because to feel right about myself, I require constant change in my life. I would never consider travelling to the same place twice. I don’t enjoy visiting with certain people because the conversation never varies from year to year. I cringe at the thought of even wearing the same shirt more than one day in a row unless I happen to be marooned on a desert island. Mare on the other hand hates change. Maybe that’s why she doesn’t even bother anymore as far as I’m concerned. The women who married my brothers have the same defeatist attitude. Our dog Bug, however, still has a glimmer of hope in her eyes. Bug loves to play fetch. We’ve had her seven years now and from the first time I absent-mindedly tossed a ball behind me that some child had left in my photography studio and found it at my feet two seconds later, she’s been a fetching machine, hence the name Bug. You don’t throw, you get bugged. That one instance was probably one of the very few times she’s brought a ball all the way back. With Bug, you’re the one doing most of the fetching. And I’m sure this devious little dog is laughing behind my back with her friends because of that. Anyone who’s had Shelties can attest to the fact that most of them are scary smart. The very first one we had, Fauna, understood a number of different languages; she could read your face in a second to know what you were thinking and somehow knew when it was 1 p.m. every Sunday. When we saw her twirling by the front door, we didn’t have to look at the clock, we knew it was one o’clock and time to go get curd. Somehow she could even adjust her mental clock in the spring and fall to compensate for the time change. Fauna fetched a ball exactly one time. I explained to her, as one would to a small child, the basics of fetching. I throw the ball, you bring it back. Simple. So I threw the ball and Fauna brought it back. She then gave me a look that was easily understood. If ever I was stupid enough to throw a ball again with nobody to catch it, that would be my tough luck. She turned and walked to the house and true to her word, she never fetched again. Fauna was definitely not into make work projects. Bug is the spitting image of Fauna. When we did the math, from the day Fauna died to the day Bug was born was roughly the gestation period of a dog. Bug seems to have arrived with some of Fauna’s memories intact but with her own little twist. On any given day, the first time you throw a ball in the yard, Bug will run as fast as she can to the ball, point to it with her nose, look back at you, point to it again and then walk back to you as if to say, “I showed you where you lost your ball, stupid, the rest is up to you.” As she’s gotten older, she’s become a little more flexible. She’ll run to get the ball, pick it up but only bring it part way back. She’s worried about my health, I’m sure, and thinks maybe I should get a little more exercise than just working one arm. Throw the ball again and she’ll do the same thing. Over and over again until you find yourself at the opposite end of the yard. It’s at that point I have to wonder exactly who is in charge. Toss it again and she’ll bring it right back and drop it about six feet away from your feet. One more time and she’ll come back half way, stop, stretch out on her stomach and basically say the game is over. That is until you start to walk away and then it’s game on. This is when I have to make a stand and refuse to play by her rules. I will not allow myself to be the dog in this relationship. It’s bad enough that she calls the shots on our walks, constantly circling around pulling at my pant leg to get me to pick up the pace. In the house, the balls are put away and the plush bones take over. Same deal. Toss one and she’ll bring it back and drop it just out of arm’s length. If you try to get her to bring it closer, she’ll look at the bone and then look at you. This usually continues until you get up out of your chair and pick it up and throw it again. In the background is the peanut gallery composed mainly of Cassie, our runaway dog, who eggs Bug on by barking out suggestions on how to screw me over. Usually it’s the same manoeuvre as outside, the fake “I’m done playing now, I’m going to lay down and squeak this sucker.” This lasts until I sink back into my comfy chair and place my feet on the ottoman at which point she magically reappears. Thank goodness we now have Mister to back me up. One poor guy against a house full of females is too much to take at times. Mister lurks around the periphery while all this is going on and then in a flash flies into the heat of battle, steals her bone and takes it into his house where no female dares to tread. Nothing like having a kindred spirit of the male persuasion around. Mister does things his way and gives me hope that I’ll never be fully trained … no matter how many species of the female persuasion give it their best shot.

Letters to the editor

Keystone pipeline proves President Obama’s true allegiance

Dear Editor, If you’re having trouble determining whether President Obama is the first leader of the free world to be identified as a Marxist/ Communist look no further than the Keystone pipeline fiasco. Marxists are anti-American and so is the Obama administration, even if the left goes ballistic when they hear that accusation.

As a radical Liberal, he would far sooner side with the environmentalists than create jobs that are sorely needed in an economically depressed country. The Keystone would direct 830,000 barrels per day of crude oil pipeline across the border, linking Alberta’s oil sands and North Dakota’s Bakken shale fields to refineries and ports in Texas.

Supporters of the $5.3-billion project would pour capital into the dismal U.S. economy, provide thousands of jobs and hasten North American energy independence. The only people opposing the benefits of such a major boost to the economy are the socialist left, those opposing big business in the guise of protecting the environ-

ment. Yet no one has successfully explained why the transportation of unethical OPEC oil is any safer than our own pipelines. After all, the green energy movement must be placated. The primary objection to the pipeline appears that it will make gas prices cheaper, which would subsequently have a detrimental effect on the devel-

opment of solar, turbine and other green energy sources. Green energy, by the way, is why costs for energy have doubled or tripled under the Liberal government in Ontario. Never mind about jobs or energy independence. That would help the common man in the United States and Canada. Obama can’t let that happen as it would

prove he’s been conning the public since he took office as any good Marxist would. He and his fellow leftists believe we must all be protected at all costs from freeenterprise capitalism. Please someone, save us from the Soviet-style Marxism Mr. Obama is trying to foist on us. Rolly Ethier, Campbellford

Flourish committee announce goal of $7 million

By Sue Dickens

EMC News - Campbellford - “Down the road I think this project will be a case study for co-operation and community building.” That was the comment from Kira Mees, one of three co-chairs with the Flourish Committee. Last week the committee met for the first time as a full cabinet. It announced the goal is to raise $7 million over the next five years, for health and wellness projects that will benefit Trent Hills. The committee spearheading this joint fund-raising campaign unveiled the

branding for the campaign and its fund-raising target with the launch of its web site. Mees explained that each partner in the campaign is bringing projects to the partnership that will benefit the community in the short term and for generations to come. “We are all working together, the Campbellford Hospital Foundation, the Campbellford Memorial Hospital board and the municipality,” explained Mees. She was joined by Sam McKeown, another of the co-chairs at the press conference. R0011915346

The third co-chair is Scott Newman. Three honourary co-chairs were announced as well and they include Bob Bennett of Campbellford, Bill White of Hastings and Tom Cunningham of Warkworth. The campaign is about one community, three initiatives, three lasting outcomes and “something for everyone”. Each partner at the table has a stake in the project. To continue to provide the best possible health care services close to home the CMH must upgrade or acquire new essential equipment for cancer diagnostics, laboratory diagnostics, and patient care areas. As part of the Flourish campaign the CMH Foundation is hoping to raise $4 million for the purchase of high priority medical equipment, including a new digital mammography unit, anesthetic

machine, microscopes and a portable X-ray machine. The municipality’s initiative includes the construction of a new recreation centre in Campbellford, an accessible single-storey addition to the Warkworth Arena and heated field house in Hastings. “Each community needs a place to gather, to act and feel like a community, to remind

itself of why it is a community,” said Mike Rutter, CAO for Trent Hills. With the completion of the Community Recreation and Wellness Centre Feasibility Study, the municipality now plans to construct these three facilities to provide for sports, fitness programs and community meeting places for groups, clubs and organi-

zations. The municipality is hoping to raise $1 million during the campaign. The Campbellford/Seymour Community Foundation (CSCF) is committed to building a strong and vibrant community for all, by funding many charitable initiatives in the area. Their reach is vast with supporting grants in the sectors of arts, culture, education, youth, recreation, environment, health, social services and community development. “The [CSCF] Foundation is not just about raising money for the community. It is about investing in the community and being committed to raising community spirit and awareness,” said Martha Murphy, CSCF executive director. That Foundation is hoping to raise $2 million, part of which will be used to create two new Smart and Caring Community Funds for Warkworth and Hastings. The Flourish committee volunteers will be contacting individuals, groups and organizations seeking financial support. “We really want engagement from the community so the committee is dedicated to getting out there and talking to people one on one,” said Mees. Last week’s launch identified the Flourish web site, <> as a way communities can find out more about the campaign and track its progress toward the $7 million dollar fund-raising goal.

Plaques requested by Hastings citizen ognition received by the Anishinaabe peoples of Alderville Reserve for this project, he stated. “A healthy fish population is beneficial to everyone,” said Caldwell.

“A healthy fish population is beneficial to everyone.” Referencing the World Fishing Network’s win by Hastings of $25,000 he noted that the Trent River Rod and Gun Club wants to pay for the plaques themselves and not touch any of that money. Caldwell asked council

for permission for one of the plaques on the light standard on the east side of the bridge near the south mill sluice. He has also asked the manager of the Campbellford Trent Severn Waterway for permission to install another plaque on the dam overlooking the spawning bed. As the only volunteer with the club living in the area Caldwell took a special interest in the project. “I have done this now for 17 years and now that the Parks Canada employees automatically adjust the levels without being

asked I will be stepping down,” he stated. Attempts to reach Caldwell for more on this have been unsuccessful as yet. Caldwell noted he has plans to relocate to western Canada and would like to see approval for the plaques before he leaves. “It has been a wonderful thing to see this community pull together when there is a worthwhile cause at hand. It is a major improvement from the past when it appeared that no one in this village wanted to see change,” he said.

Caldwell noted there are newcomers to Hastings “who are contributing with fresh ideas and these people along with the kids who are now adults are making change here.” He remarked on projects such as the waterfront improvements and marina facility. “These ideas were laughed at when they

were first mentioned. It took outsiders like Don Hopkins, Tony Edwards and Ed Brownlee to initiate change. Hastings is on a roll, let’s keep it rolling.” Council received the letter and granted permission for the plaque. Staff will find out if the municipality owns the light standard. R0011916110

By Sue Dickens

EMC News - Trent Hills Bob Caldwell of Hastings, a volunteer with the Trent River Rod and Gun Club, has asked Trent Hills council for permission to have two plaques on the bridge, recognizing the club’s efforts. The club, an affiliated member group of The Federation of Anglers and Hunters, built and maintains the walleye spawning bed in the mill sluice on the south side of the dam (Lock 18) in Hastings. “This unique project has been ongoing since its inception in 1991 and has effectively been producing healthy hatches of walleye and other valuable game fish which attract hundreds of anglers to this area,” stated Caldwell in his letter. “Without the generous support of the Parks Canada staff from the Trent Severn Waterway District office in Campbellford, the water levels in the beds would fluctuate destroying the eggs laid in the bed during the spring spawning season,” he noted. Caldwell also pointed out that there have been many others who have volunteered to help over the years “by keeping a watchful eye and maintaining the sanctuary signs etc.” Also unknown to most is the support and rec-

Here they'll have the comfort of a private suite with the peace of mind that professionals are on staff to attend to their needs. They will enjoy nutritious meals, the company of others and an endless range of activities that promote Wellness & Vitality™.

Improving your child’s bite and enhancing their smile begins with an early dental assessment and continues throughout their life. Early assessment can identify and in some cases, lessen the severity of dental problems such as improper jaw or tooth alignment, protrusions, or tooth loss. Early assessment and intervention is known as “interceptive” treatment. Interceptive, or preventative treatment includes correcting misaligned teeth and jaws, correcting tooth grinding, cross bite, and ensuring that teeth and jaw meet properly when chewing and swallowing. Interceptive treatment can also help with speech development. When identified early enough, these conditions may often be corrected or treated using simple appliances that reduce the treatment time or eliminate the need for future traditional orthodontics.

Outgoing red mail box no longer available By Sue Dickens

EMC News - Campbellford - Neither rain nor snow nor sleet or hail doesn’t really apply much anymore in terms of postal delivery to one’s home but now the red outgoing Canada Post mail

box is also disappearing. Some folks in Campbellford have noticed it has happened here and have asked the local post office officials why. The rumour mill started and stories of local mail sent

from here taking two weeks to get back circulated. Putting all of that to rest, lead hand Stephen Russell told EMC that folks can now just walk up to the counter to send their local mail. “This just happened a couple of weeks ago. It is happening to all the rural post offices,” he said. “Quite a few people have asked why the box is gone. It was a corporate decision.” “In the cities it’s been going on for two years,” he noted. So it’s not new, just new to Campbellford. “We never did have mail delivery door to door here in

town,” he added. Russell has been working for the post office for 27 years so he has seen a lot of mail. There are five employees in Campbellford. Every day folks walk down to the post office to check their mail and socialize if the opportunity presents itself. The second red mail box set out by Canada Post for outgoing letters remains outside the front door. If someone inadvertently puts local mail in that box the folks at the Campbellford post office do sort through it and try to make sure it doesn’t get sent to the main plant in

Toronto. “Anything in the red box now outside goes to the main plant. Anything that comes to the counter that is local stays here,” said Russell. The last pickup of the day for outgoing mail is 3:30 p.m. whether it is local or not. “We have all the local mail in the boxes here by noon,” Russell commented. If local mail inadvertently ends up in the red box outside and is sent to the sorting plant, it would only be a matter of days, not weeks, before it would get back here. “On average it would take three days,” said Russell.

The post office in Campbellford has 1,575 boxes. “We have boxes for everyone in town,” he noted. “The rule nowadays is anything with three or more units the landlord has to supply a box and we deliver to that … used to be ten units,” he said. In Warkworth there is still a box for local mail. The same is true for the post offices in Hastings, Norwood and Havelock. EMC called the local area manager for Canada Post, Eugene Adamo, for more information, but has had no response.

on the evolutionary calendar and that’s what makes me so hopeful that nature will survive and hopefully we’ll do everything we can to help,” says Higgs, concerned about the fate of butterflies and bees and other essential pollinators. “For so long we’ve seen nature as the enemy that we have to conquer it.” That, of course, “hasn’t always worked out” and has left animal and plant habitat destroyed, vitiated and struggling to survive and with that an environment that is far from healthy.

CYBF can help!

What follows is one story – in a series of stories – that celebrates entrepreneurial success – success made possible not only by the hard work of the business owner, but also by the availability of financing made possible by the Canadian Youth Business Foundation, a program administered locally by Trenval Business Development Corporation.

Some people are intrigued by something from an early age. Maybe it’s a sport, woodworking, writing or art. They will stick with it, passionately teaching themselves, exploring possibilities, pushing the limits and the norms. Lesley Garrett seems to be one of those lucky few that collided with something early on that enthralled her - sewing. Although her grandmother

and aunt also boast a talent for sewing, Lesley is less interested in patterns and square swatches and is instead fascinated by creating, designing and understanding how certain fabrics and textures can be combined for that unique appearance. She left the Quinte area to hone her talent in Toronto, working in design houses. She developed an extraordinary skill as a custom drapery sewer – French pleats, goblets, inverted pleats, grommets, Roman blinds – she became a perfectionist. She evolved into bedding sets, and soon her handiwork was used as cover art for fabric sample books. She applied that talent in the hospitality sector, designing, repairing and fabricating high-end hotel room ensembles.

Lesley Garrett Owner of Red Covers

Returning home, and after first completing entrepreneurial training through the Ontario Self-Employment Benefit Program (provided by Trenval Business Development Corporation), she set out to open her own business – Red

Covers - to do what she had done for others in Toronto. She contacted Amber Darling, Trenval’s Loans Officer, and with Amber’s help, completed the application process to obtain financing through the Canadian Youth Business

Foundation Program. “Amber was so enthusiastic, says Lesley. “I needed start-up capital and she got the ball rolling fast. Both CYBF and Amber were ready to help.” And now Lesley and Red Covers is on the move! She is designing new lines from her location in Marmora, including a “Zombie’s” line. “You have to understand trends and work with them”, says Lesley. She is now shipping Zombie-printed pillows, pillow sets, toilet seat covers and clothing to a long list of international locations. “I’m really popular in Texas, California, and New York”, she laughs. Her more mainstream creations are doing extremely well too! The CYBF Start-up Program requires that each young entrepreneur have

a mentor. Bill Pharl, an established business owner in Denbigh, stepped up. “We meet once a month to talk about how things are going. It’s a real key component of the CYBF Program.” “This business is more than I ever envisioned”, concludes Lesley. “A little bit of support from Trenval and the Canadian Youth Business Foundation is taking me to a level I never dreamed of!” The Canadian Youth Business Foundation is a national organization dedicated to growing Canada’s economy one young entrepreneur at a time. The CYBF Program helps youth aged 18 – 39 with pre-launch coaching, business resources, start-up financing and on-going mentoring. Visit for more information.

A rough time frame for production would be May or June, he said, but “there are a lot of stages to go through. The society, he says, will work with a publisher that will allow them to print more copies if necessary. Coveney shares Tuit’s enthusiasm for the book. “It is an interesting book and a worthy project and we’ve embarked on the path of reproducing that book,” he said. “They’re scarce and many people want them.”

We’ll evaluate the market as best we can,” Coveney told the Northwest EMC. The society is also “seriously considering digital” and on-line copies of the book, he added.

EMC Lifestyles - Hastings - It was one man’s labour of love and became a symbol of what a passion for local history could produce. Wilfrid Lynch’s endearing and much-sought-after book Hastings: The Birth of the Village will get a second life thanks to the Hastings Historical Society which is planning a re-print of the 1984 classic, which is now a very rare commodity but much in demand by local residents and history buffs. “There are not too many around but more and more people have heard about it,” says Tony Tuit, a past president of the HHS and a passionate fan of the book. The original had a press run of 1,000 copies and they’re now hard to find, says Tuit, noting that both copies at the Hastings Public Library have been stolen and that the Historical Society has just one of its two remaining. “We [the Society] have had a hard time finding copies,” Tuit admits. The Lynch family, he adds, has given the Historical Society permission to reprint the

book. “If you love Hastings, as I do, you love this book. This is almost Hastings’ Bible,” Tuit said. “This is Hastings history. I pick it up often and read a page here and there.” “You can always find something of interest in the book.” One of the great tragedies in Hastings history was the 1989 fire that destroyed the Hastings Town Hall and with it an incalculable loss of vital records that tell the village’s story. A desire to tell that story and to collect, preserve and celebrate the heritage of the community was the impetus behind the founding of the Historical Society in 1997. So a project that reproduces Lynch’s seminal local history book is certainly well with the organization’s active mandate. “It’s been talked about for about six years,” says Tuit. A long-term goal of the society would be an edition of Birth of a Village that filled in the years not covered by the book. The HHS has yet to decide how many copies they will print but have built

Market and says it is a perfect example of growing on small scale but still bringing produce to market. “The more people come to the market the more they learn about local food, We’ve taken food for granted and we don’t think about where it comes from or what inputs went into it, what people have to do to get it here and I don’t think we can do that anymore. “It’s very encouraging to see people asking about local food and talking to producers. They go home and they say, ‘I can grow tomatoes, I can grow carrots.’ Suddenly you get them with a garden that pollinators can visit.”

Mayor receives Diamond Jubilee honour By Bill Freeman

EMC News - Havelock Calling it the “highlight of my time serving as an elected municipal official,” Havelock-Belmont-Methuen Mayor Ron Gerow received a Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Monday afternoon. Nominated by the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM), Gerow was truly humbled by the award presentation which occurred at the beginning of Monday’s regular township council meeting with his wife Gail assisting Deputy-mayor Andy Sharpe and CAO Linda Reed in the ceremony. The special award commemorates the sixtieth anniversary of the accession

of Queen Elizabeth II to the throne while also paying tribute to “significant contributions and achievements by Canadians. It is presented by Governor-General David Johnston on behalf of the Queen. “I am very humbled by this award. This is a very prestigious honour,” Gerow said, admitting that when he received an email from FCM president Karen Leibovici he was “not sure it was genuine.” “It’s not every day that you receive an email from someone in the FCM let alone telling you were getting this award,” he said. But it turned out to be exactly true. In his citation the Gov-

ernor-General commended Gerow for his “dedication to your peers, your community and to Canada. “The contributions you have made to this nation are most commendable and deserve all praise and admiration,” Johnston said. “I feel very fortunate and lucky to be a recipient of such a noble award,” Gerow said. He thanked the Queen for her service and the thought of creating such an award. “As members of the Commonwealth we’re always proud of our monarchy and this is our opportunity to be part of it,” Gerow said. Gerow said he also accepted the award on behalf

of council and the municipality and cast his warmest words of praise to his wife of 29 years. “None of this would be possible without Gail.” Deputy-mayor Sharpe said it was a “great pleasure to be part of presenting the award. “I’ve gotten to know Gail and Ron really well and there’s certainly a partnership that I see.” This is the second major award Mayor Gerow has received this past year. In 2012 he was presented with a distinguished long service award by the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing marking the more than 25 years he has served as a municipal elected official.

Gail Gerow pins the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee medal on her husband Ron’s lapel; he was honoured for his “contributions supporting strong communities and good government.” The presentation was made before Monday’s regular township council meeting. Photo: Bill Freeman

EMC News - Northumberland - A revised research design for the wind turbine noise and health study has been released by Health Canada. Rick Norlock, MP for Northumberland-Quinte West made the announcement recently noting that the study is being carried out in collaboration with Statistics Canada. The proposed study design was posted on the Health Canada web site in July 2012 for public comment and over 950 comments were received during the 60-day public consultation period. After an evaluation of feedback received during the consultation, the Expert Committee introduced changes to the re-

about herself and as her life takes her on a new path it becomes a perilous journey full of surprising twists and turns.” Gibson is an award-winning photographer, freelance illustrator, graphic designer and creative writer. She was selected as one of 12 winners of the 2010 Oticon Focus on People Award and was nominated as an outstanding individual with a hearing loss and for her portrayal of the young hearing impaired teen in Sway. Kauffman, a poet, writer and editor, is familiar to reg-

search design including an assessment of infrasound and changes to the questionnaire administered by Statistics Canada, stated Norlock. The committee includes specialists in areas including noise, health assessment, clinical medicine and epidemiology. “An initial target sample size of 2,000 dwellings will be selected from eight to twelve wind turbine installation facilities in Canada,” stated Norlock. Study results are anticipated in late 2014. In addition to taking physical measurements from participants, such as blood pressure, investigators will conduct face-toface interviews and take noise measurements inside and outside some homes to validate sound modeling. “Our government’s focus is on putting the health and safety of Canadians first and this study will do just that by painting a more complete picture of the potential health impacts of industrial wind turbine noise. This is particularly important because the number of industrial wind turbines has been increasing across Canada,” said MP Norlock. Health Canada has exper-

tise in measuring noise and assessing the health impacts of noise because of its role in administering the Radiation Emitting Devices Act (REDA). As defined under REDA, noise is a form of radiation,” said Norlock. “Our government is committed to protecting the health and safety of Canadians, and this study is in response to questions from residents living near wind farms about possible health effects of low frequency noise generated by wind turbines,” said the Honourable Leona Aglukkaq, Minister of Health. “The Expert Committee has carefully reviewed and evaluated the feedback received during the public consultation and has taken it into consideration when developing the revised research design,” Aglukkaq added. The revised research design is available on the Health Canada web site at <>. A summary of the public comments received during the consultation period (organized by theme) and the responses from the Expert Committee are also available on the web site.

Twenty per cent boost in donation By Bill Freeman

EMC News - Peterborough County - The United Way of Peterborough and District got a huge boost from their supporters at the county and its eight member municipalities last week. Last Wednesday County Council celebrated by presenting a $24,277 cheque to United Way campaign chair Paul Ayotte and CEO Jim Russell. The cheque represents the final tally of workplace campaigns at the county and its eight municipal offices. “Our staff and council are committed to supporting our friends and neighbours in the communities we live in and work in and have done so year after year,” county Warden J. Murray

Jones said. “We are so very proud to support the United Way and their many great fund-raising initiatives throughout the county all year long,” Jones said. The 2012 combined county and township total is a 20 per cent jump over what they raised last year. All the local organizing committees, staff, councillors and those involved in workplace campaigns were praised by Ayotte, Russell and Warden Jones. “We are so grateful for the partnership with the county and the townships and the leadership they’ve shown in their workplace campaigns this year,” Russell said. “This 20 per cent increase

is in keeping with many of the wonderful surprises on this year’s campaign trail and underscores the importance of making services available to vulnerable people where they live,” he added. The county and local municipalities are proud supporters of the United Way of Peterborough and District and live the motto, Change Starts Here. The United Way of Peterborough District’s 2012 fund-raising campaign goal is $2,562,172; they have raised $2,219,440 so far. The annual campaign helps support over 150 programs and services provided through its 32 member agencies which reach more than 47,000 people in the county and city.

EMC Business - Campbellford - Customers at Campbellford Canadian Tire are seeing some changes at their retail store, positive changes the new owner hopes will provide a better shopping experience. Aaron Macanuel took over the business last November, with little fanfare. Now the changes being implemented are visible. “We’re in the process of winterizing the outside canopy at the end of the store. We’re removing two

replaced. “Everything in the store is moving. We’ve looked at every category we carry and expanded the assortment of those underSKUed items. We’ve looked at what our neighbouring stores sell, what we sell out of,” he said. The store has more than 30,000 SKUed products. “Some of the other things we are going to do is install call buttons, push for assistance buttons,” he said. Macanuel is installing computers so customers

can search the Canadian Tire web site. He has made good use of his time before starting the renovations which began in January, speaking to folks in the community and to customers. “Our fishing and marine products, pet food and accessories are expanding 50 to 100 per cent. Our fishing has gone from one aisle to four, marine has gone from one to three aisles, because that is what sells here. That is what people want here,” Macanuel told EMC. “Our hunting section will also be expanding significantly in the fall,” he said. Camping gear will also be expanding. “Based on what people in town have told me and staff we haven’t done a good job of servicing in those categories,” said Macanuel.

Macanuel is relying on staff to be part of this. “I like my managers to do their own jobs and make their own decisions. My responsibility is to give them the tools and let them do their own thing,” he commented. Having owned two Canadian Tire stores before, one in Digby, Nova Scotia, and the other in Flin Flon, Manitoba, he is looking forward to settling in here in Campbellford with his wife Sarah Lewis and young family. In fact he trained in the Campbellford store. His wife is looking after the administrative side of the business. Their two children, Wyatt, four and Emily, two (in April) are already in school and daycare. The grand reopening is scheduled for April 25.

He has dedicated teams working on the changes. The store has 46 employees. About 20 are part-time. Macanuel doesn’t foresee any staff changes, just growth. The store itself is 14 years old. “Nothing has happened to it since it was built. So that is part of the reason I took on this project not only to better service the area by tailoring the assortments better than they’ve ever been before and by expanding our retail square footage, but it’s also to give it a fresh look. When we’re done the store won’t look anything like it did.” He admits he is making a substantial investment in his business. Other priorities such as making sure flyer items are in stock are driving his changes.

Harris is a familiar face at blood donor clinics in Norwood and Campbellford and is keen to recruit eligible youth donors to the clinics in those communities. She welcomes opportunities to talk to high school students and biology classes about the CBS, blood products and the role they play in health care. The organization is using Valentine’s Day as a way of highlighting both the need for blood products and new donors and is cheekily encouraging couples to book a date at a local clinic. The CBS notes that the average person will spend $120 on Valentine’s Day gifts. “If 120 people donate blood with a date they may be helping 48 people receive heart surgery,” the CBS says. To donate you must be at least 17. If you have never donated before and are 61, or between the ages of 67 and 71 and have donated within the last two years you must be checked by your family doctor who must complete and sign a letter provided by the CBS.

EMC News - Norwood The Canadian Blood Services wants to recruit 150 new donors from the Peterborough city and county in February and has set a goal of 18,900 new clients for their entire central region in 2013. “We need to focus on turning new and current donors into lifelong donors in order to continue to meet the needs of Canadian hospital patients,” Sue Harris, community development co-ordinator at Canadian Blood Services in Peterborough said. The “need for blood is constant,” says Harris. Every 60 seconds someone in Canada requires blood or blood components, she notes, and because blood has “a limited shelf life demand is constant.” The CBS has set a national goal of 89,600 new donors in 2013; by 2015 they expect that number to grow to 100,000 new donors a year as the population ages and some of the organization’s donors become blood product users. “New donors are critical to the nation’s blood supply,” the CBS says.

A visit to a five-star resort in Jamaica

EMC Lifestyles - Some area residents will soon be departing for “Beach Party 13” at the 5-star Gran Bahia Principe Jamaica Resort at Runaway Bay. Therefore, I thought this would be a good time to write about this particular destination, for my wife and I stayed there just after its official opening, and we loved it! This beautiful all-inclusive resort resembles a Spanish castle, and it’s located along Jamaica’s northern coast. The oceanfront views are awesome, the variety of food is great, and the plethora of daily activities will give you plenty of options. For example, if you get tired of simply soaking up the sun or lazing under one of the resort’s swaying palm trees or casually walking along the sandy beach, you can participate in water aerobics classes, water basketball and/or water volleyball in one of the resort’s three lake-style pools or you can participate, near the pools, in such activities as horseshoes, table

tennis, exercise classes, or reggae dancing. We even discovered that there were scheduled lectures on the resort, which included information on the history of Jamaica and on the making of local crafts and foods. There’s also free Wi-Fi in the lobby, a fitness centre, tennis courts, shops, a casino, nightly entertainment, and 24-hour room service. I remember we heard a lot of Bob Marley music by the pools; I got so “caught up” in this music that I even purchased some Bob Marley sandals in the resort’s shopping village, and I still take these with me when I now go to visit other beach resorts. We were particularly impressed by how clean the premises were kept, and our junior suite’s fridge was restocked daily and our room was cleaned twice a day. However, this was just after the resort had opened, before the casino and all the restaurants were even completed, so things may have changed somewhat. I also remember that we were

struck by the beauty of the marble staircases we found on this property, but then discovered that they seemed to get rather slippery when wet, so use caution. I also remember we were impressed by the number and variety of the restaurants. The main restaurant, the Orquidea, served an international cuisine at its daily buffets—three meals per day—and it would feature particular themes, so the menu would vary. We were also able to make reservations for three dinners in the resort’s specialty restaurants, and we particularly enjoyed the Mikado, a Japanese restaurant where the food was cooked right in front of us. We were at a table for ten, eight Canadians and two residents of Ireland, and eagerly watched the creation of our wonderful feast, which included sushi, rice, tuna, beef, chicken, and shrimp. Another specialty highlight was a surf and turf meal, with a lobster tail, at the Garden Grill. However, a new seafood restaurant was being built while we were there, so such a meal would probably be served in the newer facility now. I understand that the Burger Principe even serves fast food all night long now, so you won’t go hungry

Thank You

here—even in the middle of the night! Since you’ll be staying at an all-inclusive, you might even decide to sample some of the local drinks, as we did including Jamaican beer (“Red Stripe”) and rum found in such popular rum concoctions as “hummingbirds” and “dirty bananas.” I’d also recommend going off of the resort and doing a day or two of touring while you’re there so you can see more of this intriguing island. We, for example, decided to take the “Ocho Rios Highlights Tour,” and this day trip provided shopping opportunities in downtown Ocho Rios itself, with its many specialty stores and craft markets. It also provided us with a tour of the Wassi Art Factory, where local artisans create exquisite pottery, a drive through the lush Fern Valley, where a forest of ferns

could be seen clinging to the steep hillsides, a stop at the beautiful Coyaba Botanical Gardens, and a visit to the not-to-be-missed Dunn’s River Falls. The climbing of Dunn’s River Falls itself should be on your “to do” list while here; it was on mine. Be sure to wear water shoes (which can be purchased there) and form a human chain when ascending the slippery rocks. On another day, while my wife relaxed at the resort, I went mountain biking in the Blue Mountains with Blue Mountain Bicycle Tours, Inc., and I’d certainly recommend this to any avid cyclists and adventurers. However, it’s a long drive to get there, so expect a full day’s activity (about 11 hours). The group ascended, in vans, to the summit, and then we descended, by bike, on steep, narrow, treacherous, curving roads with pot-

holes and loose gravel. We passed coffee plantations, lush rainforests, and spectacular waterfalls, eventually arriving at a lovely lagoon with a cascading waterfall, where we could reward ourselves with a refreshing dip or enjoy a cold beer that was on sale there. Our week in Jamaica was filled with many good memories, but one must also be prepared for some “detours” along the way. For example, we arrived in Jamaica from Toronto at 1:30 a.m., which was not a great time of the day for viewing the Jamaican scenery on the one-hour-long shuttle to the resort. To increase our particular “detour,” it took us about two hours to simply get through customs upon arrival, and our group didn’t actually all get on board our shuttle bus and reach our destination until after 5 a.m.!


Heritage week celebrations highlight community history Trust and it will be presented at the February 19 meeting of Trent Hills Council. The local heritage centre works very closely with the heritage advisory committee. Pearce, who wears two hats, talked about this connection. “We maintain the data base for the registry that every community is supposed to maintain of heritage properties. We maintain that for the town,” she said. The Ontario Heritage Act requires the clerk of every municipality to keep a current, publicly accessible listing of properties of cultural heritage value or interest as well as those properties in the municipality that are designated under the Ontario Heritage Act. For example, the Campbellford/Seymour Fire Hall on Saskatoon Avenue (1889) is designated as is Fowlds House, 133 Front Street West, Hastings (circa

1851). To mark Heritage Week there will be photo displays in each of the three communities in Trent Hills (Campbellford, Hastings and Warkworth) featuring properties that have been designated or have heritage awareness plaques. They will be at the libraries in Campbellford and Hastings for viewing during library hours and in Warkworth they will be displayed in a window at the post office. Linda Armata, left, a director with the Campbellford-Seymour Heritage Society, puts together a display that will be featured during Heritage Week at their building at 113 Front Street North. Judy Pearce, chair of the chair of the Trent Hills Advisory Committee and a member of the society board, talked with EMC about a video that will be shown to mark Heritage Week. Photo: Sue Dickens

CMH faces challenges head-on By Sue Dickens

EMC News - Campbellford - Moving forward the year 2013 has the distinction of marking two important celebrations for a local community institution where life often begins and ends. “It’s a very special year for us because it’s our 60th anniversary,” commented Brad Hilker, CEO and president of the Campbellford Memorial Hospital (CMH). “We’ll be having some celebration events around the 60th involving the community,” he told EMC. As well, he pointed out that the Auxiliary to the Campbellford Memorial Hospital will be celebrating its 70th anniversary. EMC sat down with Hilker and Chief Nursing Office Jan Raine to talk about what this year might bring. Hilker has been a health care administrator since 1990 so he knows the challenges facing the hospital. “We have a lot on our agenda for this year,” he said. “One of the big things is a strategic planning exercise,” he explained. The current plan is ending. “We will be looking at our community, the services that are needed … that whole strategic planning exercise is to determine where we want to be in four or five years,” he explained. Past initiatives have included enhancing the quality of diagnostic services and succession planning to deal with pending staff retirements. His analytical skills will come in handy when the board examines the government’s new health care funding model in which the money follows the patient. Smaller hospitals such as CMH, (a 34-bed facility with about 190 employees) have to create their own coping mechanisms in this new climate, a process already begun here.

“We’ve tried to be proactive. We looked at how we can work with the other community health care providers,” said Hilker. He is talking about groups such as the Trent Hills Family Health Care Team, MultiCare Lodge, Community Care Northumberland, the Community Access Centre and more. “We’ve really tried to

bring the health care providers together and I think that’s been done. We’re sharing resources much as possible,” he added. The hospital is also ready for its review for accreditation, a process that assesses a hospital’s performance against a set of standards. Auditing includes areas such as wound care management, something Chief

Nursing Officer Jan Raine and her staff have already been working on with some new initiatives. In her seven years at CMH her focus has always been the quality of care for patients. “My personal goal is to make sure our patients get the same quality of care regardless whether they are in a rural area or an urban area,” she told EMC. “Because we’re a small hospital, it’s a little bit challenging yet rewarding because we don’t have a lot of resources,” she added. “One of the things we want to make sure we do is we always want to invest in

our staff and invest in the environment; it’s a great place to work,” commented Hilker. The hospital has been recognized by the Ontario Hospital Association (OHS) twice with gold awards. Both medical professionals agree that end-of-life and palliative care services, restorative care and acute care are all part of the dynamics that the hospital staff face with an aging population. “It’s about providing quality service whether you are in the hospital, hospice or at home, and I think we can all do that and that’s where some of our energy has to be in the next year,” said Raine.

EMC Lifestyles - Campbellford - Explore local history and take pride in the heritage of your community. That is the message from the Campbellford-Seymour Heritage Society year round, a message that has even more meaning during the annual Heritage Week celebrations. In 1985, the Ontario government designated the third week in February as Ontario Heritage Week, with the federal Heritage Day kicking off the week. This year it runs from February 18 to 24. In September 2005, the Ontario Heritage Trust assumed responsibility for the planning and leading of Heritage Week. Events and celebrations happen across the province and in Trent Hills; for local historical groups, it’s an opportunity to highlight their community’s history. To celebrate the Campbellford-Seymour Heritage Society 113 Front Street North will be hosting a special video on Monday, February 18, at 7:30 p.m. “We are going to show a video about Joseph Atkinson, first publisher of the Toronto Star and his work around social justice,” said Judy Pearce, chair of the Trent Hills Advisory Committee and a member of the society board. The video, about 45 minutes long, is called Fighting Words and was written and directed by veteran filmmaker Paul Dalby. St. John’s United Church choir sing in it. As well on Wednesday, February 20, the heritage society will host a display of past businesses. Linda Armata, a director with the heritage society has been putting together the display. “I am featuring newspaper ads to make it more interesting. They are all hand drawn,” said Armata. The society opens its doors every Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The display should remain there for about one month. “The [Trent Hills Heritage Advisory] committee has decided we’re going to highlight a number of the properties that are either designated or have heritage awareness plaques,” Pearce told EMC. In Trent Hills there are more than 50 heritage awareness plaques mounted on homes. That is over and above those designated as heritage properties (cultural heritage value) under the Ontario Heritage Act. The heritage awareness program was launched a couple of years ago. Donald Buchanan, a member of the committee, spearheaded the program. “It is really helping to raise awareness of the rich heritage we have in Trent Hills in terms of heritage properties,” said Pearce. The heritage advisory committee will be celebrated for its efforts. It has won an award from Ontario Heritage

Knights player up for TSN-Advil highlight title, needs your votes By Bill Freeman

EMC Sports - Havelock With a little help from Internet savvy football fans, Edwin Rivera Jr. could win the TSN-Advil Highlight of the Month championship and its $25,000 grand prize. The smooth-running Norwood District High School Knights running back is one of ten finalists up for the prize to be determined by online votes for his 15-second video clip of Rivera’s tackle-defying 50-yard game-tying TD run against the St. Peter’s Saints. It was the last game of the year for the undefeated Knights and the TD helped force overtime where Norwood came out on top. Eligible voters must be at least 18 and they automatically qualify for $5,000 draw prize. You can vote once a day until March 3. The winner will be announced March 4. After watching a commercial promoting the contest Junior’s father Edwin thought to himself: “I have a highlight and it certainly can compete with what I saw in the commercial.” “I figured we had a good shot to have ours chosen with the quality of the play I was thinking of submitting,” Rivera, of Havelock, told the Northwest EMC.” A few weeks after the

submission, Rivera got a call from TSN telling him the video had qualified; with all the necessary paperwork completed Junior was in the running for a prize that could help meet tuition costs at a CGEP school in Quebec where he hopes to continue education while honing his football skills and catching the eye of an American college program and his ultimate dream of playing professional ball. Junior has also played for the Clarington Knights

of the Ontario Football Conference and joins the Peterborough Senior varsity Wolverines this season. “I was proud and excited at the same time,” Rivera said recalling the call from TSN. “I started telling people at work about it; I also called home that same afternoon with the news. Our family has never been in a competition like this so we were ecstatic to find out that they recognized the quality of our highlight.” “Playing with the

Knights all high school has been fun and full of good experiences,” says Junior, who calls himself an “agile player with speed and good hands.” Playing at the Rogers Centre in his first year and the annual Friday Night Lights games have been highlights. Helping his teammates put NDHS on the football map against much bigger schools will be a lasting memory, he adds. “It’s always been a challenge for sure when you are a smaller school with smaller guys, but it’s the hard work that pays off

and makes any victory that much better against the other schools. It is nice to know we have helped Norwood get noticed in sports even with our small number of students.” “Football means more than just trying to be the winning team after every game,” he says. “It gives me a feeling I can’t describe, to just be out there on the field with your teammates making plays

and having fun. It’s all around a good feeling for me to have football a part of my life.” Other than football he says he’d like to pursue a trade and “travel lots and see the many different places and things in the world.” “I truly believe he has the talent and the mindset of the game necessary to make it far,” his father adds.

Rebels in running for second in EBCJHL EMC Sports - Campbellford - The Campbellford Rebels could have locked up second place in the Empire B Junior C Hockey League with a win over Port Hope Sunday night but fell 5 - 4 in overtime and will have to wait to see how the Panthers do in their February 11 game against the Napanee Raiders. The Rebels wrapped up their regular schedule with a 12 - 5 pounding of last place Deseronto but squandered a 3 - 0 lead in the overtime loss in Port Hope. Going into the final weekend of the season the Rebels were in tough for second spot in the tight battle for three positions below first-place Picton which ran away with the league pennant racking up 70 points and coasting to top spot in the crest of a 19-game win streak The high-scoring Pi-

rates (34-4-0-2) will look to avenge last year’s EBJCHL championship loss to Campbellford. Campbellford finished the season with a 24-13-12 record, two points ahead of Port Hope (24-14-01) which has one game in hand and four clear of Amherstview (23-15-01). Napanee (10-26-2-1) and Deseronto (3-36-0-0) rounded out the standings. The Panthers eked out second place with a win over Napanee. Last year the Rebels finished second overall. The dominant Pirates have a lineup that includes the league’s top four scorers led by Ryan Sizer who notched 40 goals and 41 assists for 81 points and Jack Davison with 35 goals and 44 assists. After that quartet it was the dynamic Rebels trio of Ryan Crowley (24-40-64), captain Seamus McDougall (14-47-61) and Hunter

Fargey (28-29-57). Fargey will be a top contender for EBJCHL rookie of the year. The Rebels Jumped out to a 3 - 0 lead in Port Hope on goals by Fargey, Tyler Daveys and Mitch Gibson only to watch the Panthers rally with four straight goals of their own and taking the lead with 3:23 left in the game. Campbellford knotted the score with 1:51 left on a goal by McDougall to force overtime. The hometown Panthers made short work of overtime with Brad Heykoop notching the winner 50 seconds into the extra frame. Picking up two assists for Campbellford was Crowley with single helpers going to McDougall, Mitch Burkitt, Nick Orton, Josh Adams and Jackson Bellamy. The Rebels wrapped up their regular home schedule against lowly Deseronto with 14 Campbellford players featuring in the scoring and just one penalty called, a second period holding infraction to Gibson. Fargey and Crowley had two goals each with singles going to Steven Clarke, Chris Klompmaker, McDougall, Jon Samis, Dylan Baxter, Tim Pandachuck, Andrew Revell and Jeremy Doherty. Tyler Delpellaro picked up the win in net.


Local players raising funds for Euro hockey adventure By Bill Freeman

EMC Sports - Norwood Two local hockey players are busily raising money to help pay for a “dream” ten-day hockey and cultural travel adventure to Europe next month. Ethan McDougall and

Liam Hunter of the Holy Cross Secondary School Hurricanes will be part of an 80-strong two-school contingent that will travel overseas March 6 to March 10. They’ll be joined by their friendly Kawartha League rivals the St. Peter’s Saints

as well as the parent-coachalumni Kawartha Lakers oldtimers team. Both Holy Cross and St. Peter’s will play four games, the Lakers will play three. Ethan and Liam, both graduates of St. Paul’s Catholic Elementary School in Norwood, will be collecting bottles February 16 (9 a.m. to noon) in the AsphodelNorwood area to help defray some of the costs for the $2,625 trip. Both Ethan, who is also the assistant captain of the Norwood J.J. Stewart Midget A’s, and Liam, a defenceman on the Fitzsimmon’s Towing and Repair Minor Midget AAA Petes who started his minor hockey career in Norwood, are excited to test their Canadian hockey skills against U-18 and U-20 club teams on the larger Olympic ice surface. “It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity,” says Ethan who’s pleased to be able to share the trip with hockey

friends from St. Peter’s. “It’s going to be a great new experience to play different teams; the ice size will be larger with more room. It will certainly be different than playing over here,” he said. “I think they [the Euro club teams] should be pretty good.” “It should be a good experience,” Liam adds. “The hockey will be different and we’ll have some good exposure to what they play like in Europe.” The blueliner expects a “fast-paced” style of play with “a little more finesse. “Use your speed and go wide on the bigger ice,” he said.

They are both hopeful that a successful bottle drive will ease some of the costs of the trip. “It should help out,” Ethan says. “As a team the total is divided by the people who do it. It helps out even if it covers the bus [going to the airport].” The players are asking supporters to leave their bottles on their porch or driveway so they don’t have to bother residents by knocking on doors. The group flies from Toronto to Munich March 6 then travels to the pretty Bavarian mountain town of Garmisch-Partenkirchen. On the way they’ll stop at Dachau, the Nazi’s infamous

first concentration camp, for an eye-opening self-guided tour. The Hurricanes’ first game is in Lustenau, Austria, against a U-18/U-20 club team. On the tour they’ll also face Augsburg U-18, EC Peitang U-18 and EV Moosburg U-18. There will be lots of sightseeing along the way including stops at several castles like the one in Linderhof, the Passion Play Theatre in Oberammergau and an extensive tour of Munich with visits to both the old and new city halls, Marienplatz, the famous Hofbrauhaus, the National Theatre and other landmarks.

Moira Lake Snowmobile Drags a resounding success By Terry Bush

EMC Sports - The timing

of last week’s winter storm could have been a little better but members of the Centre Hastings Snowmobile Club aren’t going to complain. Working into the wee hours Friday night clearing snow and getting the drag strip into shape paid off big time for the club with close to 550 spectators arriving to watch the races on Saturday. And the weather couldn’t have been better. The crowds were thrilled with non-stop racing action starting at 10 a.m. with a top speed for the day of 117 miles per hour registered on the radar gun. The course was only 660 feet long. With lots of racers turning out for the event, the organizers were pleased with the turnout though the storm did keep some racers from making the trip. Others didn’t let the blizzard keep them from travelling long distances. “I know of one group that came from Sudbury and stayed at the Park Place Motel in Tweed,” said club treasurer Steve Thrower. Four women entered the contest and did well against the men. Three kids signed up in that class, boding well for next year’s bigger and better event. On the politicians’ side, the title fittingly went to Daryl Kramp, though some might say his knowledge of the lake and its ice might have given him a hometown advantage. The races were held right across from the site of the Two Loons restaurant the Kramps owned. Hot on Daryl’s trail was MPP Todd Smith followed by Centre Hastings Deputyreeve Tom Simpson and Andrew Vanecko of the hometown snowmobile club. An army of volunteers from local service clubs and the snowmobile club shared in the event’s profits which in turn will be going back into the community. Close to $7,600 was raised through the gate and food purchases. Please see “Snomobile” on page B3

With all that power under the hood, it was hard for some racers to keep the skis anywhere near the ice. Above, a big black “Cat” gets the jump on Charlie Marchant of Norwood. Photo: Terry Bush

Canadian Pickers spends the day at the home of Model T enthusiasts By Sue Dickens

EMC News - Campbellford - Canadian Pick-

ers blew into Campbellford last week in the middle of a snowstorm arriving on the doorstep of Steve and Carol Anne Stapley where they spent the day in this safe haven as part of their crossCanada treasure hunt. Calgary-based pickers Scott Cozens and Sheldon Smithens are on the road again for a brand new season of Canadian Pickers. The pickers are searching out new treasure troves in British Columbia, Quebec,

Manitoba, New Brunswick, PEI, Nova Scotia, Saskatchewan, and their native Alberta for their fourth season. The Stapley home, where Steve Stapley & Sons 24 Hour Towing & Autobody is located, is now one of those stops. “It was our model Ts that brought them here,” said Carol Anne Stapley. EMC had rushed to their place of business upon learning of the visit by these two well-known TV celebrities. “They heard about us, just word-of-mouth,” said

Stapley, humble about the fact that the family is well known internationally with a reputation as collectors and restorers of brass era automobiles. Online they are described as a family of Ford Blue Bloods. Their three sons, Scott, Bryce and Kelly and their families are all involved with this passion for these automobiles. “They grew up around all of this,” Stapley told EMC. She and her husband are active in Model T Ford Club International as well as the Ontario Region.

They have set up a new chapter “trying to keep the young people involved.” The couple, married for 35 years, have always enjoyed their love affair with the Model T. They were married in a Model T, their eldest son came home from hospital in a model T and two of their sons both used Model Ts at their weddings. Stapley also has an antique shop on the property with everything from bikes to wagons, doll carriages to pedal cars. “We are open by chance or

by appointment,” she said. Typically the shop opens in the spring. But the day Canadian Pickers showed up they were definitely open for business. Media was not allowed to stay or take photos as the production company was filming. Everything is kept under wraps until the new season launches later this spring. “We had a good time. They are great people,” said Stapley. Her husband and their eldest son Scott are to be featured in the show. Please see “After” on page B7

A plan to save Presquâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ile lighthouse By Ray Yurkowski

tion Society officers Norm Bastin and Dave Sharp, who outlined a plan to save the aging, historic maritime symbol. The Society is a non-

profit organization created in 2012 to repair and refurbish the second-oldest lighthouse in the province. Originally built from limestone in 1840, it was clad in

cedar shingles 54 years later to prevent further decay. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you look at the lighthouse, it looks pretty darn nice from a distance,â&#x20AC;? said Sharp. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The problem R0011913502

EMC News - Brighton At their regular meeting last week, municipal council heard from Presquâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ile Point Lighthouse Preserva-


is, when you get up close, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s starting to fall apart.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of the problems we see in the immediate future is the amount of moisture trapped inside,â&#x20AC;? he added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The priority for this year is to stop the deterioration by the humidity and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s probably a $10,000 to $15,000 fix. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our objectives are fairly straightforward. First, we want to evaluate the condition of the lighthouse and, for that, we have a lot of engineers willing to step forward. Next, we want to begin the steps that are required to stop any deterioration of that building, both from an internal and external point of view. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty aggressive but I think we can do it with a lot of help: by 2015, we want to restore the lighthouse to its former glory.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every city has its icon,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In Brighton, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the lighthouse and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to preserve, our local heritage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The bottom line is, what do we want? Do we want something thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fully restored back to its original grandeur or do we want a pile of stones and a tripod stuck out at the point? We have a decision to make for our future generations.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;To do all that, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll take a lot of funds,â&#x20AC;? Sharp explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be doing a lot of membership drives over

the next two years, holding raffles and a charity evening event as well as asking for donations. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll also be looking for both corporate and government financial support.â&#x20AC;? They asked for municipal support in a number of ways: a link on the municipal web site to the Society web site, a letter of support, a donation and, working in conjunction with the Society, a Lighthouse Heritage Week. Deputy-mayor Craig Kerr asked if there were any estimates for the cost of the project. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Looking at other lighthouses that have had structure work done, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking at in the range of $1 million, maybe a million-and-aquarter,â&#x20AC;? said Bastin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That would be the top figure. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have an engineer who is coming to look at it at the beginning of April and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll give us an idea of what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking at for the restructuring of the lighthouse.â&#x20AC;? Despite being barely mentioned in the 20-year Presquâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ile Provincial Park Management Plan, issued in October 2000, Ministry of Natural Resources senior media relations officer Jolanta Kowalski said last November, in reply to questions asked by EMC newspapers, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The long-term protection of the lighthouse is Please see â&#x20AC;&#x153;Restorationâ&#x20AC;? on page B3

Over $2,500 was divvied up in prize money among the racers. The shuttle service provided by Foleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bus Lines also worked well though many folks crammed the parking lots and sides of the highway to be closer to the action. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was an extremely busy day but well worth the effort,â&#x20AC;? said Steve

Thrower, one of the organizers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I firmly believe the community and surrounding areas had an opportunity to see what this type of event can offer. The economic impact will be felt in years to come as we move forward after our learning experience this year. Each and every non-profit group involved realizes the benefits this type of event will have for

their organization and the community.â&#x20AC;? A few changes will be made for next year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There will be a bigger event planned for next year,â&#x20AC;? said Thrower. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have a focus on fewer classes of snowmobiles as far as ccâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. And hopefully we do not get dumped on with snow at the last minute again,â&#x20AC;? he joked.

NHL type hockey net stolen from community rink EMC News - Castleton Northumberland Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) were informed of a theft of a distinct hockey net from the Community Recreational Park on Cemetery Road in Castleton. The theft happened sometime on Tuesday, February 5. A witness observed a dark blue or black small pickup truck drive past his residence at approximately 11 p.m. on Pine Street with what he believed was a hockey net that was from the Community Park. The witness attended to the park ice rink area and

confirmed the theft and contacted OPP. An investigation was conducted and it was determined that a vehicle had entered the park. A Riley Manufacturing, 44-inch goal frame with six millimetre netting, red and white in colour hockey net was stolen. This is not something a person would typically go out to purchase for a driveway or backyard. The invoiced value of the net is $1,050.  There were two nets left at the rink. OPP are continuing to investigate. The Castleton Sports

Club is a community volunteer organization and raised funds to purchase a pair of regulation sized hockey nets for the community park ice rink from community donations. Anyone with information about this theft or the whereabouts of this item is asked to call the OPP at 1-888-310-1122 or the local Brighton detachment at 1-613-475-1313 . Should you wish to remain anonymous, you may call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS), where you may be eligible for a cash reward of up to $2,000.

important to the Ministry. Repairs to the lighthouse are evaluated annually and assigned a priority against other capital projects.â&#x20AC;? But she added, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Ministry is always open

to exploring partnerships; particularly for a project like this where there are a number of interests. We would encourage any groups that have interest in the care of the Presquâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ile lighthouse to contact the

park superintendent to explore partnership opportunities.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a fantastic idea and I think youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll find a lot of folks who want to see this happen,â&#x20AC;? said Councillor Tom Rittwage.

have suffered huge population losses in recent years. In British Columbia, for instance, there are not enough bees when blueberries are in flower to pollinate them.

“It’s really scary, the numbers are decreasing so much.” “No pollinators, no blueberries,” says Higgs. In California they have to bring in bees to the almond groves every year. “They actually use half the honey bees in North America. They ship them to California over the course of six weeks,” she said. “In parts of China they handpollinate because they don’t have enough pollinators.” Providing the wild bee population with a home is crucial, says Higgs. “They’re very important to the whole pollination scene. I’m the eternal opti-

erything up.” There are also installations like Mission Bee Houses. Critically, the garden has to be pesticide-free. “There are lots of benign things we can do.” Some pollinator-friendly plants Higgs suggested include: For Spring, Canadian Columbine, blueberries, crocus, daffodils, day lilies, dandelions, foxglove, “all trees that flower in the spring are a great source for pollinators, sumac, tulips, willow bushes; Midseason, bee balm, black currant, black-eyed susan, butterfly weed, calendula, chives, geraniums, hollyhock, honeysuckle, lavender, lemon balm, milkweed, purple cone flower, carrots, squash, zucchini, cucumber, pumpkin, sunflowers, zinnias, lupin; Late season, aster, Blue Vervain, chicory, dandelions, Golden Rod, Joe Pye Weed, Sweet Autumn Clematis, thistle.

mist so I’m always hopeful that some way we’re going to get a handle on this. Everybody can do their part. If everybody who had property did as much as they could for pollinators that would be a huge help.” It’s as simple as planting things in your garden that attract pollinators. “We can offer what they need when they need it: food, water, shelter and protection from poisons. “Native plants will provide the best food source for native bees,” said Higgs noting that honey bees are not native but bumble bees are.” There are lots of herbs, flowers, fruits, vegetables that can be grown in our gardens to help bees, butterflies and hummingbirds, says Higgs. “Crocuses are absolutely the best plant you can grow if you want to attract pollinators,” she said. “They are one of the first flowers of spring. Daffodils are the same; day lilies are an absolutely wonderful source for pollinators.” Higgs even defended the hated dandelion: “Leave them as a food source for spring. “How about a deal, first two weeks in the spring and the last two weeks of the season?” she said with a laugh.

EMC News - Hastings Local market gardener Joyce Higgs of Hastings spoke to a group of area residents last week about things they can do to attract important pollinators like bees, butterflies and hummingbirds to their gardens. The actions of individuals can have a positive impact, she emphasised, while providing a good starter list of things they can grow to provide a healthy haven for pollinators. It’s important to provide water as well, something as simple as a shallow dish with pebbles that offer a landing place and to “leave a little bit of wilderness” in the garden. Ninety per cent of bees, for instance, live on the ground. All they need is a “little tiny corner of your garden.” “They need some bare earth out of the way [and] they will find it,” she said. “We don’t want to tidy ev-


Food for pollinators By Bill Freeman

EMC News - Hastings - It isn’t all “doom and gloom,” says Hastings market gardener Joyce Higgs of the plight of pollinators that are an essential part of the food chain and the health of our environment. Still, it is “turning into a huge problem,” says Higgs, especially with bees, and continues to capture headline ink as biologists and naturalists warn about massive population decreases and what that means considering that 75 per cent of the food crop depends on pollinators like bees, monarch butterflies and hummingbirds, but also ants and beetles “which are less fun to look at.” “It’s really scary, the numbers are decreasing so much,” Higgs told the Northwest EMC before a presentation at the Victoria Street seniors’ apartment complex on how local gardeners can help pollinators. “A lot of people don’t understand how much we need pollinators,” she says. “There has been so much habitat degradation or fragmentation they really are at risk, the same with other species.” “It’s not a doom and gloom situation because there are things we can do as individuals as long as we realize these are pollinators and they need our help; there are things you can do on a personal level as a gardener to help.” The plight of bees (there are 800 species of native bees) is at the forefront. They are, Higgs stresses, “the most widespread and important pollinators” but they are under siege and

After Campbellford and area itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s off to the UK Continued from page B1

â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was an interesting thing to see â&#x20AC;Ś when you

see the production of it you see how they do their finds,â&#x20AC;? said Steve Stapley.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a show we watch a fair bit.â&#x20AC;? Cozens and Smithens will

also be testing their picking skills in the UK, hoping their trip will pay off with some unique picks from across the pond. Co-Executive Producer Mary Swanhaus from Cineflix, spoke with EMC while on the road herself, from a stopover in New York City. She explained that the show is a partnership between the History Channel and Cineplex. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They [Cozens and

Sheldon Smithens, left, and Scott Cozens of Canadian Pickers were in Campbellford the day of the snowstorm arriving on the doorstep of Steve and Carol Anne Stapley, well-known with an international reputation for restoring Model Ts. Photo: Submitted

carried out in May. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I knew it was a big opportunity,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find out until two weeks ago I made it to the actual show.â&#x20AC;? The two entrepreneurs have no idea what portion of the taping will make it to air. And they cannot reveal what happens on the show. Parr did say, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had our pitch well rehearsed and practised ahead of time. You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t anticipate what the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Dragonsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; are going to say but we walked away pleased with what we got across.â&#x20AC;? They were centrestage when they faced the Dragons Bruce Croxon, David Chilton, Arlene Dickinson, Kevin Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Leary and Jim Treliving. Ideally the goal is to get financial backing and expertise from the Dragons. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Beyond that regardless of the outcome, the exposure, the national platform, is phenomenal,â&#x20AC;? said Parr. An encore airing of the program will happen on Monday, February 18. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family day,â&#x20AC;? said Parr with a grin. When Parr isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t promoting

you Thanks to many in our community:

Many thanks to the Volunteer Fire Fighters of AsphodelNorwood, Trent Hill’s and Havelock-Belmont-Methuen who answered the call and successfully extinguished a fire at our farm on Jan 31, 2013. Working cooperatively to fight the fire, you all demonstrated a level of professionalism and skill that is second to none. Your efforts to control and contain the fire ensured that we were able to keep the barn in production and the fire did not spread to neighbouring buildings which could have easily been a reality. Your performance on that cold, windy and snowy day was outstanding and for that we are extremely grateful. We would be remiss if we did not also mention the efforts of all the trade’s people that got the feeders running again, the water, heat, natural gas, and electricity operational again and who quickly constructed a temporary wall so that we could continue to operate from that barn. Remarkably no chickens were lost and this would not have been possible without your efforts. Our sincere thanks to Walsh Electric, Dan Van Bruinessen Construction, Glass Pac St. Jacob’s and Randy Gillingham Heating. Also thanks to all of the local businesses, neighbours and family that provided coffee and sandwiches throughout the day for the Firemen and support workers. Special thanks to all those friends and family who have called and visited offering their support, your thoughtfulness is much appreciated. Appreciation also goes to the HTM Insurance Company and Calvin Newman that responded with professional service that afternoon. Understanding coverage to value certainly is important at a time like this. A very special thank you to Sam Sampson and Ed Walsh for their very quick first response. Without your immediate action we know the end result would have been much worse. And we can’t say enough to thank you! The combined efforts of many people during this time of need was extraordinary and we feel very blessed for all that you have done for us.

McInroy, Brooke Marlayne Sept. 5, 1994 - Feb. 14, 2011

They say there is a reason, They say that time will heal. But neither time nor reason, Will change the way we feel. For no one knows the heartache, That lies beneath our smiles. No one knows how many times, We’ve broken down and cried. We want to tell you something, So there won’t be any doubt, You’re so wonderful to think of, But so hard to be without. Remembering you is easy We do it everyday. But missing you is heartache, That never goes away. We think of you in silence, We often speak your name, But all we have are memories, And your picture in a frame. These past two years have went by in a flash, But it still seems like yesterday. Love and miss you always, Mom, Dad, Brett, Grandma, Grandpa, Misty & Tigger (and all your cows)
