EMC News - Campbellford - “Keep us out of the red.” Those are the words of a call to action by the Campbellford Health Coalition (CHC) which joined the province-wide Save our Services (S.O.S.) campaign with its own red ribbon day. “We asked everyone to wear a red ribbon to ask the government to keep hospitals out of the red,” said Wanda Tucker, co-chair of the local coalition. “There could be staff cuts,” said Tucker. “Our large concern is getting another doctor to fill our OR because we are now down to three days a week. We’re worried if we don’t get another surgeon to look after that it could be one of the cuts they end up doing.” Ray Cousineau is also a co-chair. EMC was able to reach Tucker the day before the call to action event took place on March 4. “Different communities are doing different things,” Tucker explained. “Some are holding pickets outside of their hospital, some going to their MPPs, some holding candlelight vigils.” The province-wide day of action was announced at Queen’s Park by the Ontario Health Coalition (OHC) last month. Town hall meetings were held to get their message across. From a rally at Belleville General Hospital to a campaign launch in Kingston to a press conference in Peterborough to a candlelight evening at the Guelph General Hospital and more, action was taken across the province on Monday. In a statement to EMC the Campbellford coalition said, “All across Ontario hundreds of hospital beds are being closed down, patients are lined up on stretchers in the hallways, local services are being cut and moved out of town, outpatient clinics are being privatized and home care and nursing home placements are severely rationed forcing many to wait a long time, pay for private care or go without.” The day of action is a way of standing up against the cuts and to show support for the local hospital and health care services, explained Tucker. “What we’re really focusing on now is small rural hospitals because they are the ones being attacked the most,” she added. Tucker talked about how “some of the services are now being transferred so you have to go further away to get care.” The Local Health Integration Networks (LHINs) “are still in talks to find out which ser-

Municipality will host county awards

By Bill Freeman

EMC News - Norwood - The Peterborough County Recognition Awards are coming back to Asphodel-Norwood. The spotlight will fall on some of the county’s unsung residents during a gala showcase at the Asphodel-Norwood Community Centre May 24. Nominations for the prestigious awards in ten categories officially opened up last week and will close March 15. It is an event County Warden J. Murray Jones of Douro-Dummer looks forward to every year, one that illustrates the astonishing range of individual and collective talent and passion for local Please see “CMH Staff” on page 3 communities that exists in Peterborough

County. “We have the honour of giving recognition to men, women, children and businesses in our community who contribute to what makes this area so great,” Jones said while making the first call for nominations. “I encourage you to consider nominating a friend, neighbour or business that has truly made an impact in the county,” he said. Andy Sharpe, deputy-mayor of Havelock-Belmont-Methuen feels the same way and wants to make sure that HBM is “well-represented” at the awards. Sharpe made the same plea last year and HBM residents were indeed in the spotlight during the ceremony last year

in Lakefield. “We’ve got a lot of people in our community that certainly can be recognized,” Sharpe said last year while he encouraged local residents to make a “concerted effort” to nominate worthy candidates. In the past, Jones has said that lauded county residents for showing themselves to be “exceptional in heart and innovation.” Application forms have been forwarded to municipalities as well as to local fire chiefs, police service boards, libraries, chambers of commerce, fair boards, Scouts Canada as well as the GPA EDC, Community Care offices, Please see “Municipality” on page 3

Trent Hills chamber creates buzz with media strategy

By Sue Dickens

EMC News - Campbellford - A new social media strategy has created plenty of buzz for the Trent Hills and District Chamber of Commerce. Schellé Holmes, who was re-elected president at the chamber’s annual general meeting (AGM), talked about how membership has increased. A social media strategy was developed to build member retention, recruit new members and provide an opportunity to feature and profile members. It worked. The latest figures show that 23 new members

came on board bringing total membership to 220. This, according to Holmes, is the result of the chamber launching a strategy to develop a more efficient and effective social media plan. “This past year we have focused on engaging our members, adding value to the membership services and benefits, and seeking opportunities to add our voice to matters affecting the business community of Trent Hills,” said Holmes at the AGM. “Your feedback, participation and contributions to the chamber have been very valuable, and we appreciate your support,” she added. About 50 attended the meeting.

Holmes highlighted some of the work of the chamber this past year noting the government relations committee raised awareness about the role of the Ontario Chamber of Commerce, “featuring their policy resolutions in newsletter, sending out business-related surveys, and sharing their new Emerging Stronger document, a plan to foster business prosperity in Ontario.” She also noted that, “Tourism remains a key component of the Chamber mandate,” adding that the annual Visitor Guide continues to be popular. “This past year we also created YouTube videos featuring our annual events.” Chamber staff continue to be involved in destination development, creating new experiences for visitors here. Doors Open and Trails Open taking place June 1 and 2 are new for 2013, and efforts are under way to create a Trent Hills Gallery Tour in the fall. More details will follow. Events such as the Celebration of Business Excellence and the Celebration of Small Business continue to be successful and will be held again this year. The latter is just one more opportunity the chamber hosts to create opportunities for event participants to mix, mingle and share business tips. The government relations committee also took a lead in raising awareness and generating discussion about the Trent-Severn Waterway cutbacks, said Holmes. “I’m pleased to share that we have now brought this to the attention of the Ontario Chamber of Commerce and

EMC NEWS - Hastings - It was text messaging of a different kind in Hastings last week as students lofted a sea of pink balloons into the air with each one carrying heart-shaped thoughts on bullying and how it can be overcome. “The kids are letting that message out to the world,” said Grade 8 student Nancy Ohno. “It’s to let the whole town know that we’re against bullying,” Nancy told the Northwest EMC as she and her classmates prepared the cluster of balloons which filled the front foyer at HPS. The school dedicated the week to anti-bullying discussions culminating in the snow-delayed national Pink Shirt Day celebration and the release of the colourful balloons. Students talked about “How can we in a broader scope send our messages?” HPS principal Sarah Rogers said. “When we talk about the messages they wanted to send we also talked about a message that was close to their heart [hence the use of heart shapes inside the balloons],” Rogers said. Some students, she said, told “their own stories about bullying” and others wanted to “express how somebody could help in that situation. “That somebody will end up with that message somewhere means a lot to them.” There might be a chance that a faraway recipi-

ent might contact the school but Nancy says the most important thing is that Hastings students were spreading their anti-bullying messages beyond the playground. “It’s important to realize why kids get hurt from bullying and we’re kids telling other kids not to bully. We’re getting little kids involved so that when they’re our age they’ll know not to bully.” Hastings Public School is a calm place, she says. “It’s kind of like a big family and everyone’s friends with each other and we can always work things out and get over it.” The balloon messages, she added, tells the town and the wider world that “we respect adults and we respect teachers and they respect us.” Rogers said that even the school’s youngest JK students “understood the idea of spreading their own messages.” Important, too, is the message that respect for each other is an everyday thing, Rogers stressed. “National Pink Shirt Day is a day [when] we make sure we do something to acknowledge that.” Rogers spent the week visiting classes and reading books about bullying and showing You Tube videos as further illustrations. Teachers also spent time talking to their students about the issue. “Everybody is aware and everybody has to work together [they] feel solidarity with students across the country.”

Pink solidarity by Havelock students New name, new look for your community paper By Bill Freeman

EMC News - Havelock - “We respect people for what’s on the inside and not on the outside,” says Dallas Tunstead of Havelock Belmont Public School. The Grade 6 student and her peers at the school drove that message home with a show of pink solidarity last week as their contribution to National Pink Shirt Day one that happened a day late in the Kawartha Pine Ridge District School Board because of a school bus stopping snow day. But HBPS students were so passionately committed to recognizing the day of solidarity that the school allowed them to celebrate the following day, principal Glen Payne said. “Across Ontario it has become such an important event,” Payne told the Northwest EMC. That’s certainly what Dallas and her friends think. “Every day you should think about it and respect people and try to stop bullying,” Macie Dixon added. Pink Day, Macie says, reminds people that they shouldn’t forget. “We think that bullying is not right and that it hurts people’s feelings; it should be stopped,” she said. “Our school’s lucky because not a lot of kids get bullied; anywhere else it’s gotten pretty bad.” “Pink Day is a good day to support people who get bullied for wearing pink,” Dallas added. “Our school really partici-

Peterborough County Federation of Agriculture, Lang Pioneer Village, the county-city health unit and the county’s Accessibility Advisory Committees. Individual residents and organizations can also submit applications online at the county’s web site. They can also be forward by fax. Nominations will be accepted for “any resident or group residing in the county who has raised the profile or make an extraordinary contribution to our community.” There can only be one award for each category from each municipality unless stated otherwise. The categories include: accessibility recognition, acts of heroism, agricultural leadership, business leadership-entrepreneurial innovation, community volunteer of the year, environmental recognition, heritage preservation, leadership in arts and culture, sporting excellence and youth age 25 or under who has contributed to the betterment of the community and or school environment.

The coalition also claims that outpatient services are being privatized. “Homecare and nursing home placements are severely rationed and many have to wait a long time, pay for private care or go without,” stated the CHC. Tucker has been involved with the CHC for the past six years and works in housekeeping at the Campbellford Memorial Hospital. On another front, Tucker, who is also President CUPE Local 2247, said the Canadian Union of Public Employees issued a letter last month to all division presidents, requesting help “to make our health accord campaign a success.” Local 2247 represents dietary, maintenance and housekeeping workers as well as RPNs.

vices are best placed in which hospitals,” she explained. “The worst part of it too is we spend less per patient in Ontario than any other province.” The OHC claims Ontario was funded to the tune of $1,312 per person in 2012. “Since the 1990s, the province has lost 18,500 hospital beds,” said Tucker. In a local flyer the Campbellford coalition stated: “Ontario’s Liberal government is cutting billions of dollars from the health care you and your family count on. Ontarians are paying the price for years of the deepest tax cuts in the country by curtailing health funding by $3 billion. That’s tax cuts for the wealthiest and corporations.”

pates. It’s good to see how many kids support pink day.” “When you see people wearing pink you know they care about it,” said Hailey Baptie. Payne says students and staff at HBPS are proud that the stop bullying message is part of the culture of the school and permeates every corner of the building and playground and has a bearing on how students behave outside of school. “We celebrate the great success of not having bullying in schools and just having people treating each other with respect,” he said. That attitude, he added, is also a mark of good citizenship and is in line with the KPR’s Character Education attributes which schools stress every day. “All of those attributes come into play when we’re talking about anti-bullying,” said Payne. “This is more of a day to bring it all together because it happens each and every day, that’s the most important thing for sure.”

Premier will meet with HBM council

By Bill Freeman

EMC News - Havelock - Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne has agreed to come to Havelock-Belmont-Methuen to meet with members of council. “She’s committed to coming here and meeting with council and discussing a number of issues that we have,” Mayor Ron Gerow said during Monday’s regular council meeting. Mayor Gerow met with the premier, a summer resident of Havelock-Belmont-Methuen, and Peterborough MPP and Minister of Rural Affairs Jeff Leal during last week’s Ontario Good Roads Association meeting. “We had a really good discussion and we were able to make sure that at some point there will be a meeting in the township with the new premier,” Gerow said. “That will happen in the near future. “The premier is not a stranger to our community,” he added. Gerow and council had extended congratulations and an invitation for a meeting to Premier Wynne shortly after she assumed office and noted at that time that she and her family were very familiar with the township as summer residents. Gerow was pleased that Leal was able to arrange for a short visit with the premier in Toronto. Wynne, who is also the Minister of Agriculture, was the first premier in history to participate in the ministers’ “bear pit” session at the conference which followed her keynote speech. “Your perspectives and your needs are going to inform all our conversations and all of our decisions and our policies,” Wynne told delegates. “Many of you know me and you know that I have always focused on finding practical solutions, real concrete ways to get things done. And that is how I am going to continue to operate, and that is how our team is going to work too. “The word rural is not going to be spoken just for visiting a farm. It is going to be part of our discussions about building Ontario’s economy. It is going to play into our efforts in infrastructure and education in health care.” Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne.

EMC News - Campbellford - A total of 13 people stopped by the public information centre (PIC) held by the Municipality of Trent Hills regarding the next phase in the 24-unit affordable housing project slated for King Street here. The public was invited to check out details regarding proposed engineering and design for the watermain, sanitary sewer/storm replacement and extension to Bloor Park and street construction, for First and King streets, Campbellford. The development known as the Valley Green Homes Housing project is to be operated by Bloor Park Village Inc. Keith Venables, a resident of First Street, was among those who attended. “I just wanted to see the drawings and see how First Street is going to change if it is,” he told EMC. He also wanted to know if the town planned on cutting down two large trees that are on his front lawn but on town property. “Half the people were still concerned over costs to taxpayers and the other half said this is good, now when are you going to do the rest of the street,” commented Jim Peters, director of planning, speaking to EMC the next day. Some of those who attended the PIC are residents of the streets to be affected while others have followed the project from its beginnings, a project that sparked controversy and led to an OMB hearing followed by an appeal. The OMB dismissed the appeal allowing the project to go

continue to make it nearly impossible for seniors, those on fixed incomes and just ordinary people trying to make an honest living survive from month to month. Now we see where the cost of our energy through Hydro One will go up once again because the Liberal government saw fit to make the taxpayers subsidize their idiotic scheme to fund wind turbines and solar panels. Costs for energy have doubled or tripled since McGuinty and his ideologues decided to transform the province into a socialist utopia just like Cuba and Venezuela. Taxpayers received notification recently from Hydro One that their rates will be increasing because of “delivery rates.” The notice said the Ontario Energy Board had approved a delivery rate hike, approximately 3.5 per cent, to portions of the bill for a typical delivery … whatever that means. Hydro One provides pie charts to show the makeup of the total electricity bill but nowhere do I see anything that discloses how much taxpayers are paying to subsidize green energy. Transparency is something the Liberals do not know how to spell let alone practise. As I’ve said before and I’ll say again, if alternative forms of energy are such a good deal let private enterprise foot the bill. But McGuinty and his socialist foot soldiers realize no one in the private sector is stupid enough to actually invest in a total losing proposition. So as long as you have a Liberal government in power in this province, things will never change. Recalling all the unfounded criticism of the Mike Harris government of yesteryear when he actually attempted to cut spending, this extremist Liberal administration has made him look like one of the good guys.

Carbon Tax: The Chinese Are Frightened EMC Editorial - Last week’s announcement by China’s Ministry of Finance that the country will introduce a carbon tax, probably in the next two years, did not dominate the international headlines. It was too vague about the timetable and the rate at which the tax would be levied, and fossil fuel lobbyists were quick to portray it as meaningless. But the Chinese are deadly serious about fighting global warming, because they are really scared. Gwynne Dyer A carbon tax, though deeply unpopular with the fossil fuel industries, is the easiest way to change the behaviour of the people and firms that burn those fuels: it just makes burning them more costly. And if the tax is then returned to the consumers of energy through lower taxes, then it has no overall depressive effect on the economy. The Xinhua news agency did not say how big the tax in China would be, but it pointed to a three-year-old proposal by government experts that would have levied a 10-yuan ($1.60) per ton tax on carbon in 2012 and raised it to 50-yuan ($8) a ton by 2020. That is still far below the $80-per-ton tax that would really shrink China’s greenhouse gas emissions drastically, but at least it would establish the principle that the polluters must pay. It’s a principle that has little appeal to U.S. President Barack Obama, who has explicitly promised not to propose a carbon tax. He probably knows that it makes sense, but he has no intention of committing political suicide, the likely result of making such a proposal in the United States. But China is not suffering from political gridlock; if the regime wants something to happen, it can usually make it happen. So why is China getting out in front of the parade with its planned carbon tax? No doubt it gives China some leverage in international climate change negotiations, letting it demand that other countries make the same commitment. But why does it care so much that those negotiations should succeed? Does it know something the rest of us don’t? Three or four years ago, while interviewing the head of a think-tank in a major country, I was told something that has shaped my interpretation of Chinese policy ever since. If it is true, it explains why the Chinese regime is so frightened of climate change. My informant told me that his organisation had been given a contract by the World Bank to figure out how much food production his country will lose when the average global tem-

perature has risen by 2 degrees C (3.5 degrees F). (On current trends, that will probably happen around 25 years from now.) Similar contracts had been given to think-tanks in all the other major countries, he said—but the results have never been published. The main impact of climate change on human welfare in the short and medium term will be on the food supply. The rule of thumb the experts use is that total world food production will drop by ten per cent for every degree Celsius of warming, but the percentage losses will vary widely from one country to another. The director told me the amount of food his own country would lose, which was bad enough—and then mentioned that China, according to the report on that country, would lose a terrifying 38 per cent of its food production at +2 degrees C. The reports were not circulated, but a summary had apparently been posted on the Chinese think-tank’s web site for a few hours by a rogue researcher before being taken down. The World Bank has never published these reports or even admitted their existence, but it is all too plausible that the governments in question insisted that they be kept confidential. They would not have wanted these numbers to be made public. And there are good reasons to suspect that this story is true. Who would have commissioned these contracts? The likeliest answer is Sir Robert Watson, a British scientist who was the Director of the Environment Department at the World Bank at the same time that he was the Chair of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. George Bush’s administration had Watson ousted as chair of the IPCC in 2002, but he stayed at the World Bank, where he is now Chief Scientist and Senior Advisor on Sustainable Development. (He has also been Chief Scientific Adviser to the British Government’s Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs for the past six years.) He would have had both the motive and the opportunity to put those contracts out, but he would not have had the clout to get the reports published. When I asked him about it a few years ago, he neither confirmed nor denied their existence. But if the report on China actually said that the country will lose 38 per cent of its food production when the average global temperature reaches 2 degrees C higher, it would explain why the regime is so scared. No country that lost almost two-fifths of its food production could avoid huge social and political upheavals. No regime that was held responsible for such a catastrophe would survive. If the Chinese regime thinks that is what awaits it down the road, no wonder it is thinking of bringing in a carbon tax.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR About that “About that Home of the Brave editorial”

Dear Editor, This is in response to “About that Home of the Brave editorial” letter which appeared in the February 28 issue of the EMC. I had a reaction when I read: “He appears to have missed the Nazi bombing of highly populated civilian areas such as Paris and London, or the Allied response bombing Berlin in which tens of thousands of innocent civilians were slaughtered, or perhaps it didn’t fit his narrative.” My mother, my grandparents and brothers and I lived in the Paris area during World War II. My dad was a prisoner of war in Germany. We lived on rue de Liege a few hundred metres from the Gare St. Lazare, the most important railway station in Paris. This is not far from the ward of Belleville in Paris. There was no serious bombing in Paris. Occasionally a couple of small RAF bombers did come to destroy a building occupied by the Gestapo or other Nazi organizations.

Those bombings were extremely accurate and very rarely caused serious damages to surrounding buildings. Just before the liberation of Paris, the U.S, Air Force did some “carpet bombing” on some industrial areas outside the “Grand Paris.” The Allies did a lot more destruction than the German army. General Dietrich von Choltitz, who was commander of the German army for the defence of Paris, disobeyed Hitler’s order to destroy Paris. The city and its suburbs suffered very little demolition and casualties compared to other capitals in Europe. Many books written in French by renowned historians have been published. May I recommend the author of the aforementioned letter to read the book Is Paris Burning? It’s in English and written by Larry Collins and Dominique Lapierre and published by Simon and Shuster. C.

COMMENTARY By Richard Turtle

Won’t somebody please think of the children? EMC Editorial - There has been another study on childhood obesity and more recommendations on how to deal with it. Here in Ontario, Heath Minister Deb Matthews recently received a report by her own appointed panel that, while resisting the idea of a junk food tax, suggested a ban on certain marketing practices aimed at children. A perfectly reasonable report for a group of grown-ups to hand to a health minister. Curtailing marketing practices ever so slightly is always safer than that tax thing. But this is a serious health issue the experts say is getting markedly worse, and with increased obesity we see increases in diabetes, heart disease, and other related health risks. And that all costs us plenty through lost productivity and real dollar doctors’ fees. But finding a solution seems more an education issue than a health care one. It’ll really start to be a health care issue in a decade or two when the effects begin to emerge. But in order to reverse a trend begun in childhood, an educational approach at that critical time might see better results. So perhaps another ministry should be involved as well. Simply put, an awful lot of children today aren’t eating properly and it’s not just the junk food. And lots of them are a long way from clinically obese. But it’s becoming endemic in part because eating badly is easy. And on the surface it’s cheap. But it’s far easier to resist clever and flashy marketing ploys and strategies when there’s a complete understanding of all the available alternatives. And too often for too many, when it comes to eating these days, the alternatives bounce between fast food chains and coffee shops. And because none of those big players would like to hear there’s a new tax coming on their brand of food, they’d quickly lobby up and let the voters know why it’s wrong. And governments don’t really want to be the ones to draw another line between the stuff that’s taxed and the stuff that isn’t when everyone calls it food anyway. Especially when it all comes individually packaged and frozen in the grocery store as well. There must be a better approach than simply banning signs, for now, and slowly raising the stakes on a regular basis until people respond in the manner intended. We did that with cigarettes, but eating badly is different. And it tends to start earlier. In presenting a health ministry report it

suggests the solution should be somehow connected primarily to the health care industry. Closing the proverbial barn door. But these are children. Their access to health care doesn’t come easy and not without consent and just because they’re little doesn’t make it any cheaper to treat them. And, since their diets and eating habits are most often dictated by parents or guardians at home, and later influenced by peers, the heath care system has little influence on children’s choices at the end of the day. Education, on the other hand, just might be able to make a measurable difference. Despite the fact that Home Economics got dissed to death over the years, it may have serious merit today as a compulsory requirement. The kids are at school from the time they’re four anyway, so what’s wrong with a course or two about food and nutrition some time in that decade and a half? Learning outcomes would be dead easy to assess. Bake a cake using a cookbook instead of a box, make a loaf of bread from scratch, a pot of soup using only ingredients you can spell and pronounce, and plan a menu for a nutritious dinner. Final exam: cook the dinner for your family at home. They’ll tell you if you passed. Call it science (because it is) or call it math (because that’s there too) or call it creative arts (because it certainly can be) or call it life skills or global studies or personal health or self-improvement or heatin’ and eatin’ if that’s more palatable to the learners, but make some element of food preparation and consumption a regular and unavoidable part of the curriculum. Along with phys ed. And yes, it would be a nightmare to implement. Specially designed kitchens and more than the usual classroom instructors for starters. And probably lots of aprons and tall white hats. But instead of government ministries attacking childhood obesity with restrictions on the marketing of chips and pop, why not spend a little time formally educating the mini consumers instead? You’ve got them at your disposal. And you can give them academic credit for it. Granted, a significant number won’t go on to make their own bread or simmer their own stew on a regular basis, unless they really want to. And for some it would be no different from doing their times tables. But learning how and why to eat properly has got to help more than ignoring half the issue completely and ordering the dismantling of lots and lots of colourful store displays.

Municipality backs County Day at Lang EMC News - Havelock - Township council has thrown its support wholeheartedly behind the first-ever County Day at Lang Pioneer Village. The July 28 event is the brainchild of HBM Deputy-mayor Andy Sharpe and will involve all eight municipalities at the living museum. “It will be a celebration of all our townships,” Sharpe told council Monday. “[County Day] will celebrate our history, our traditions, our residents and our future,” he said during a joint presentation with Deputy-warden Joe Taylor. “It was initiated with the thought that we don’t get a chance to interact enough with our other townships very much,” Sharpe explained. Each township will “take over one building” at Lang and organize activities around the site; they’ll also participate in additional events on stage on the “green” behind the village’s main entrance. The stage will showcase groups from all eight municipalities. Special children’s games and activities will be organized by Lang staff. “Most townships have buildings there,” says Sharpe. Belmont Township’s beloved South Lake School was the first heritage building transported to Lang in 1967. North Kawartha has already decided to focus its events at Glen

Alda Church working with its historical society. Asphodel-Norwood could use the historic Fitzpatrick House. “My thought was we could use South Lake School and create an entire day around it,” Sharpe said. There were nine one-room school houses in HBM and Sharpe says celebrating the families who attended those schools would be a good theme for the township. It will be up to each township to develop a program at their site. “We don’t want to hold the townships down in any way; we want each to make the building their own and create something around it,” Sharpe said. “The buildings at Lang don’t get celebrated enough.” There will be a main “planning group” with representatives from each township; each township will be responsible for costs associated with their event. Organizers would like each township to purchase 100 tickets at $6 each and distribute them within their municipality. Lang will be open to the general public at the reduced $6 charge. The attendance goal is 800. “As we go through various townships it will gather steam,” said Taylor. “This is Andy’s idea. I think it’s got a lot of merit. With the committee using their collective minds and imagination it could be all kinds of fun. “If this year is a success we’ll make

some decisions after that,” he said. Sharpe also wants to get all eight township councils together for a photo, something that’s never been done before. Celebrating “what the early days of education meant to residents” at South Lake School is perfect, Mayor Ron Gerow said.

He missed going to the school by five years but has “fond memories” of Sunday School classes there. His family going back four generations attended the school. “There’s a multitude of information out there.” “I think [there will be] a lot of support in the community. My vision is that

EMC News - Norwood - Terry Low will cap his tenth year on the Otonabee Region Conservation Authority board with another term as chair but clearly hinted that this will be his last year at the head of the table, “I’ve enjoyed the last few years, but I think it’s time for new blood after this term,” Low told the Northwest EMC during the organization’s annual general meeting in Norwood where he and Sherry Senis were acclaimed as chair and vice chair. Low also received an official ten-year citation from ORCA CAO and Secretary-Treasurer Allan Seabrooke. The former deputy-reeve of Asphodel-Norwood was a big part of the shift in direction at the authority which has won over critics and pointed the organization on a positive track with stakeholders, developers and the general public. The authority is on target to implement all of the recommendations contained in its well-received operational and governance review and has also produced a clear, easily usable watershed planning and regulation manual.

Spirit of the Hills hosts free demonstration

EMC Lifestyles - Warkworth - Brian Smith, figurative artist from Toronto, gave “an inspiring free demonstration” recently at the Warkworth Town Hall Centre for the Arts. The event was hosted by Spirit of the Hills Northumberland Arts Association. Diane E. Arsenault, an artist and member of the association, organized the event and said, “He displayed his abilities in abstracting the figure using a limited palette of acrylics and soft chalk pastels while painting the image of Port Hope model and artist, Maia Desjardins.” Close to 50 people attended the Saturday morning event.  Smith shared a selection of his finished works on paper, confirming for everyone present his outstanding reputation as a classical drawer and painter of the figure and showing how he has become a master of figurative abstraction. He used layer upon layer of colours, blacks, greys, shades of blue, green, orange and highlights of white, red and green.  Smith has taught classes and workshops on life drawing, portraiture and figurative abstraction for more than 20 years. He has been on the faculty of the Ontario College of Art and Design, The Koffler Centre for the Arts, Haliburton School of The Arts, Curry’s Art School, Visual Arts Mississauga and Neilson Park Creative Centre and conducts Master Classes in his own studio. The Brian Smith Figurative Abstraction Workshop for May 4 and 5 has already sold out. But if anyone would like to place their name on a waiting list in the event a space becomes open please contact Susan Groot at <>.

We’re a solution based organization now. Times are changing and attitudes are changing and we’re the beneficiaries of it.” Low noted the organization is now invited to speak to groups like the Ontario Landowner’s Association, something inconceivable not that long ago. “We’re invited to speak to them now, before we were fighting them and lot of other [groups].” Peterborough County Warden J. Murray Jones echoed Low’s thoughts. “In the past few years I have personally seen a huge improvement in the whole attitude,” Jones said. “I haven’t heard the phrase ‘that damn ORCA’ in a while. Warden Jones says the co-operation and service the county receives from the conservation authority is something it takes “very seriously. “It’s about working together, it’s about working together for all the right reasons and I know the county and all the municipalities [feel that way],” he said. “Certainly ORCA is the main player and we appreciated the co-operation.”

Trent Hills in good shape for economic growth By Sue Dickens

EMC News - Trent Hills - Trent Hills is in a good position when it comes to available employment lands which bodes well for the future economic growth of the municipality. This fact was made evident at a meeting of Trent Hills Council where the Northumberland County Lands Study was discussed. “It’s very clear we have a serious problem in Northumberland County with available lands,” commented Trent Hills Mayor Hector Macmillan, who is also the county warden. For Trent Hills, however, the situation looks much better. “For the size of our municipality it looks like we are doing a pretty good job keeping lands up to a condition of availability at least for the studies that we’ve done which was to support businesses that already exist here with a place to expand,” said the mayor. Jim Peters, director of planning, noted in his report to Trent Hills Council, “We are probably looking at the creation of a county official plan by 2015.”

He sees the process as clearing up a couple of issues, such as “addressing some of the designations of surplus industrial lands or redesignating more likely developable employment lands throughout the county and removing others that are less likely to be developed.” It all part of a plan to identify employment lands that are investment ready. “At present, Trent Hills has lands available that are zoned and serviced in the Campbellford Business Park,” stated Peters. The Trent Hills Strategic Plan identifies the marketing and development of these lands in the Campbellford Business Park as a priority. “As this strategic action goes forward, the short-term and longterm potential of other employment lands could be looked at in conjunction with the next phase of the County Employment Lands Study,” he explained. According to the county, investment ready employment lands need to have the ability to be serviced and ready for construction within six to 12 months, if not im-

mediately. “As we move forward Trent Hills is well positioned as part of our strategic plan to start to market and bring tenants into the Campbellford Business Park,” said Peters. “But of course we want to go forward with the next steps for the county employment land study,” he added. The county’s report on its 20112014 Strategic Plan: Economic Renewal and Prosperity was provided to Trent Hills Council. “It is anticipated that there are many companies with monies available for investment in lands that are serviced, zoned and ready for development,” said Peters. He noted too that the county study recommends a number of steps in better identifying employment lands to be prioritized and serviced. Some of the work involves rationalizing some of the lands currently designated in local Official Plans. Some of these lands, though designated as employment lands, will not be development ready for many years.

Currently, this step involves changes within the seven local Official Plans. “However, as it appears that a County Official Plan will be required by 2015, this issue may be resolved through that process,” he affirmed. County CAO Bill Pyatt reported to council that

the consultants have indicated there are 1,725 hectares designated for employment lands but only 482 hectares are or can be serviced. The news, however, is good for Trent Hills. “We are in very good shape in terms of having lands available,” said Peters.

Teacher involvement is needed

By Ray Yurkowski

EMC News - Brighton - The reinstatement of extracurricular activities in high schools was welcome news to East Northumberland Secondary School physical education director Tim Larry. Now he’s calling for school boards to open their wallets and fund scholastic sports. “The news of our union allowing for the resumption of extracurricular activities was welcomed at our school,” said Larry. “We appear to have most, if not all, of our spring-season coaches back. However, around the district and the province, only time will tell how many teacher-coaches decide to return to volunteering.” “Teachers have always known the value of extracurricular activities,” he added. “School sport, as do all extracurricular activities,  needs teacher involvement.”

But Larry contends; if school boards footed the bill, all students would be able to participate without the worry of affordability. “It costs a lot of money to run school sports,” he said. The Ontario Secondary School Teachers Federation (OSSTF) opened the door to resuming afterschool activities after a vote on February 22. But, at a news conference after the decision, OSSTF president Ken Coran said a “significant” portion of the membership—about 60 per cent of their 60,000 members—was upset and stressed the decision to return to extracurricular activities will be an individual one. Larry says the decision to withdraw support for extracurricular activities was “difficult” but teachers were “standing up for what we felt was important issue in our profession and society in general. “We felt it was the right thing to do at the time.”

Touch a Truck, many activities planned for March Break Part-time

EMC News - Campbellford Big trucks, really big trucks, will be rolling into the parking lot of the library in Campbellford during March Break for children and their families to see. Not only will they be able to see them they will be able to touch them. It’s all part of Touch a Truck event to be held Monday, March 11, from 1:30 until 3:30 p.m. to celebrate March Break. “We wanted to figure out how to get the community involved,” said children’s librarian Mary Jo Mahoney. The idea was brought forward by Donna Wilson, head librarian. Neil Allanson, manager, roads and urban services for Trent Hills was approached with the idea. The request went before council and was given the go-ahead at a recent meeting. “We’d thought we’d like to put big vehicles in the parking lot and give kids the opportunity to sit in them,” explained Mahoney. “The little guys at our library’s story hour absolutely love this stuff,” she added. “As soon as they see a big piece of machinery go by they run up to


the window.” The event is being organized by the Campbellford Branch in partnership with the Friends of the Seymour Carnegie Library. Municipal staff will be on hand to answer any questions and watch over the equipment. Hopes are a tandem axle dump truck and a front end loader will be among the machinery to be displayed. It all depends on what equipment is available that day. And if it snows then the event will move inside, minus the trucks. It is free. Refreshments will be provided and there will be activities for the children and some draws. Children will be supervised by their families, library staff, and volunteers. As well during March Break the library will be hosting a teddy bear picnic on Friday, March 15, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. for children ages five to seven. “They have to sign up ahead of time,” said Mahoney. “The kids can bring their teddy bears and there will be face painting too,” she added, noting there will be prizes for the most loved teddy bear, biggest and smallest and so on.



“I think it’s a great idea. I love the initiative that comes out of the board,” said Rose-Marie Kerr, chair of the Friends of the Seymour Carnegie Library. “And the town you know is always there for us.” There will be plenty to see and do during March Break. The Campbellford Community Resource Centre has events planned for the entire week from March 11 to March 15, everything from clay sculpting to digital photography to the Little Tigers program to boost confidence levels in kids, to a presentation by the Indian River Reptile Zoo and more. Activities are for children age six to 12 years. The cost is $35 per day or $175 per week. The centre expects the spots for these activities to fill up fast. Marie Switzer, early childhood education specialist with the YMCA Northumberland Early Years Centre, says there are plenty of activities planned for Campbellford; everything from a program called Coping with Toddler Behaviour to toddler and pre-schooler dental screening to a St. Patrick’s Day potluck party with special guest, children’s entertainer Pat Kelleher.

Northwest EMC - Thursday, March 7, 2013 9


Reality Check:

Sheila Wray Gregoire EMC Lifestyles - We are so blessed to live in Canada. We don’t worry about whether we’re going to have supper; we just worry about what we’re going to make for supper. We have food in abundance, clothing in abundance, and shelter. Others may have more, but compared to most of the world, we’re at the top.

Training kids to think outside the box

Personally, I’d like to stay there. But for Canada to remain a vibrant economy, we need dynamism. We need people with new ideas who are willing to run with them. We need people who will think outside the box for new solutions to problems. And we need people who will take risks. Is our school system conducive to raising the next generation to meet these demands? Our schools are run by people who like school; if they didn’t, why would they go into teaching? They went to university where they trained for a job where they knew exactly what they would be doing. There were few surprises. And chances are they can continue like that for decades. Idea people and risk people wither in bureaucracies, so they rarely work there. Our students, then, are rarely exposed to the kinds of people who make our economy thrive.

The Good Earth:

Odds & Sods 2

prevent damage from either the limb breaking from the sideways motion of you striking it or the quick release as it snaps back. The latter seldom happens, but it can so you might as well not tempt the snow fates. This heavy snow is also the reason why you don’t shear off perennials and ornamental grasses to the ground. The ice that will form can block sufficient amounts of oxygen causing the plants to suffocate. I remember this being an issue on the farm for our red clover fields. O&S#4 Sad Sox: Sox, our dog, is not very happy at the moment. His companion, Toucan the cat, went out for a stroll last week and hasn’t come back. She is fully grown but a dainty wee thing; completely black save for a splash of white on her chest and some toes. She doesn’t answer to her name which is why I call

entire fourteen years of education, from full-time Junior Kindergarten to Grade 12, without ever encountering anyone who built a business. After all, catching the entrepreneurial spirit is so much more than just the content of the courses; it’s the type of adults our kids interact with. Those working in the education system have job security and pensions and vacations. They have limited room for advancement, but they accept that because the pay is good. They’re not looking to get rich; they want to make a difference, while enjoying security. In contrast, what does an entrepreneur do? An entrepreneur may take one idea and fixate on it, and do nothing but that for a whole year. They may forego vacations. They may even forego pay for a few years to get the dream started. The biggest skills they’ll have to learn

her “Cat.” We’d like to thank everyone who has responded to our emails, knocks on the doors and ads; folks if you do lose a pet Kijiji is surprisingly effective even though it is seen as a sales venue. To those of you in the west end of Trenton who have wondered about the fellow tromping around their yards looking under their decks, it’s just me. We’re hoping that someone has taken her in and she is just riding the gravy train as long as she can before coming home. She did have a collar and tag with our phone number. O&S#5 Squash: For those of you who head out to the gyms and fitness centres you will be aware of the numbers of landscapers who are busy cluttering up your facilities. Our season is short and we have to earn most of our money in seven months or less. That means when

are perseverance, networking, and marketing. The business world is filled with people who rejected school’s regimentalism: Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Warren Buffett. Yet for each Steve Jobs, how many kids who would have made dynamic, out-of-the-box entrepreneurs did we turn off altogether? How many kids’ passion and drive did we destroy by trying to make them conform? Teaching and entrepreneurialism are two entirely different skill sets and mindsets. It’s not about slotting in another course or two; it’s about changing the whole school culture. If we want our economy to be dynamic, we’re going to have to make our schools more dynamic, and that may involve taking risks and doing things that have never been done before. I know that sounds drastic, but that’s how most good ideas start.

the season opens up we can’t be out of shape and prone to strains or pulls. Fitness is a serious part of our business. That doesn’t mean we can’t have fun. The game of squash provides the best of all aspects of fitness with the added bonus that all of us Type A personalities can get out there and thrive on the competition and, at the very least, hit something hard, legally. Hitting piles of paperwork is like punching marshmallows; not at all satisfying.

Dan Clost on the day. This is likely my last competitive (term used loosely) tournament owing to an increasingly decrepit body and I shall revel in this last sip of the summer wine. Yeah, yeah, yeah: Sic transit ac gloria.

37th Annual Presqu’ile Waterfowl Weekend

EMC Events - Brighton - The Friends of Presqu’ile Park are pleased to announce that spring will follow winter! And with spring comes the return of tens of thousands of ducks, geese and swans to Presqu’ile Bay. Waterfowl of up to 25 different species arrive each spring to rest and feed here before moving on to nesting areas further north and west. Each year, for the past 37 years, the Friends of Presqu’ile have been happy to sponsor the Presqu’ile Waterfowl Weekend to celebrate this natural phenomenon. The tradition continues in 2013 with the 37th annual weekend on March 16 and 17, from 10 a.m. to 4



O&S#1 Canada Blooms: Whether you are an active gardener, a retiree whose past gardens get more elaborate with the passing years or a newbie to the pastime, a trip to Canada Blooms is always a good outing with much to see and do. Linda Holmes from the Tweed & District Horticultural Society would like folks to know that they are running a bus to the Canada Blooms show this year. It is on Friday March 15, with pickups in Tweed and Belleville. The cost is $55 per person which includes bus fare and the ticket to the show. For more information call her at 613-478-6850 Connon Nurseries is also running buses on March 15, 16, 18 and 19. The buses will leave from the store with direct runs to and from the show.  The cost is $55 which includes bus fare, ticket to the show, and a continental breakfast sensitive to dietary needs; call 613-392-0402. There may be other organisations hosting bus trips and I would be glad to mention them in this column. O&S#2 Rabbits:  These varmints are awake and very active. It is astonishing the damage they can do overnight. Now is the time to readjust the burlap, check the guards and spray some PlantSkydd. An encouraging note is the number of fox tracks and owl sightings we have seen in the Quinte area but they have yet to make an appreciable dent on the overwhelming numbers of these wascally wodents. Any one heading off to Australia in the next little while? O&S#3 Snow: We had been doing very well this winter with a nice cover of “soft” snow blanketing our flowerbeds. This past snowfall, though, was the sticky heavy variety and, if you haven’t done so, you might want to look at your multistemmed shrubs and evergreens. If you will be removing heavy clumps, hold the stem with one hand as close to the end as you can. With the other hand, brush off the loose snow. Move your stabilising hand closer to the ground or lower on the stem and brush off some more snow. This will help

That doesn’t mean our economy doesn’t also need other types of people; hard workers who will do their jobs well; loyal workers who will go that extra mile. But what we need to stay competitive is people who will come up with these new ideas and start new businesses. So what are our schools doing to encourage kids towards entrepreneurism even if that means foregoing university? Schools tend to push kids toward more school, not toward opening a store, or buying a franchise, or even, heaven forbid, working in the oil sector. In high school kids can take courses on entrepreneurism, which is a good start. Yet these courses are rarely taught by people who are actually entrepreneurs. That doesn’t mean that they aren’t taught well, only that our kids are missing something. Unless they take a co-op placement, a student can go their

p.m. daily. “This is truly a world-class natural spectacle,” says Park Naturalist David Bree. “While these birds are present in March in numbers at various places along the Lake Ontario shoreline, Presqu’ile has some of the greatest concentrations, and has easy access to good viewing locations.” Bree goes on to say, “The big advantage to coming to the park during this weekend is you have access to spotting scopes to look through and knowledgeable volunteers to help you find and identify the many species present, and of course we have some added attractions people can take

advantage of at the Lighthouse Centre and Nature Centre.” The Nature Centre will feature children’s activities and crafts, duck displays, and a taxidermy display from Feather and Down Taxidermy, with Steve Dingman there to answer your questions. We will also have Adam from Henry’s Camera present. This is your chance to see and test the latest and biggest camera equipment on the market. The Lighthouse Centre will feature photography and art displays by Jim Brown and Sherrie Greig, and Dave Richards from Bushnell will be there to showcase and sell their line of optics. Of course the Friends’ Gift Shop will also be open. The Friends will also host a barbeque where lunch, hot drinks and snacks can be purchased starting at 11 a.m. “The barbeque was a great hit last year; a warm burger was just the thing come noon and I am glad we are able to offer this again this year,” says Bree. The Lighthouse Centre is also the location of the indoor washroom facilities, an attraction in their own right on a cold March day. The Friends invite everyone out to share in this event. It makes a great outing for those who appreciate nature, families and individuals alike. The only cost involved is an $8 per vehicle park entrance fee or show your annual/seasonal park pass. Proceeds from this weekend will go toward The Friends’ projects in the park. We hope to see you there. For more information call 613-475-4324 ext. 225. or email <>.

Congregation welcomes new pastor EMC News - Campbellford - The sun shone brightly Sunday morning as the Campbellford Free Methodist Church and their congregants officially welcomed their new pastor, the Reverend David Stephenson in a special Induction Service conducted by the Reverend Kim Henderson, Director of Personnel of the Free Methodist Church in Canada. Also present was Rob Milligan our local MPP who brought greetings to the congregation. Following the service everyone in attendance was invited to join together for an excellent luncheon downstairs in the Fellowship Hall. Pastor Dave gained some local familiarity as the “plunging pastor” having participated in the recent Polar Bear Dip after officiating the renewal of wedding vows for Ken and Ginette Dehne, owners of Ken’s Stereo and TV. Pastor Dave and his wife and ministry partner Kathy came from the Fort Erie area to pastor here in beautiful Trent Hills last August. Campbellford Free Methodist Church now partners with the Salvation Army in hosting the Lighthouse Diner which provides a nutritious and delicious meal, free to everyone every Friday. In addition Campbellford FMC also hosts Legal Aid every other Friday just prior to the luncheon. CFMC has just launched our new web site <www.>. There you can find information on the church and activities as they continue to explore new community initiatives.

Ontario Municipal AssociationOntario Good Roads Association Conference in Toronto recently where the 108 recommendations contained in the 22-month-long commission report will certainly be front and centre. Premier Wynne addressed the conference Monday afternoon and then participated in the Cabinet Ministers forum as the Minister of Agriculture. It was the first time in conference history that a premier has participated in the minister’s forum. Gerow said he listened to the new premier’s throne speech carefully “and although it wasn’t spoken to specifically, the issues around this certainly were mentioned.” The Association of Municipalities of Ontario is also watching developments closely and issued a recent release to the province’s 444 municipalities. “There is much at stake given the crucial role that income and employment support programs play to promote community health, reduce poverty and to enhance economic competitiveness,” AMO says. Gerow agrees. “We as a local municipalities need to be concerned with what exactly this means in terms of program delivery and what the expectations are from our local municipality’s perspective in terms of costs,” he said. “We know there are going to be some changes, especially in Ontario Disability Support [ODSP] and other programs; all the information that has

come forward so far is that it is going to be handed off to the municipalities to administrate. “We will be watching that with interest.” “Transforming social assistance has many benefits,” AMO senior advisor Michael Jacek says. “At the same time it is fraught with potential risks for municipalities. “The recommendations to devolve provincial responsibility for the disability program to municipalities, along with a greater role in the delivery of employment supports, are significant,” he says. The provincial report’s recommendations require “careful examination and consideration.” “We are open to new possibilities but it needs to be under the right conditions with clear benefits for all, including municipal governments,” said Jacek. “It is vital to ensure that there are no new costs to municipalities or transference of financial exposure as a result.” As well, Jacek said the “dialogue on transforming social assistance in Ontario must include other efforts to further investigate the delivery of income support and employment services with other human and social service delivery. “Our common interest is to design, plan and see the delivery of an efficient and effective service, simplify and consolidate arrangements where appropriate [and] to strongly focus on results.” “Getting it right is paramount.”

Apron auction deadline quickly approaching EMC News - Stirling - With an online vintage apron auction exceeding early expectations this week, public library supporter Kerry Ramsay is hopeful the fund raiser will translate into a significant contribution to the local library’s teen collection.

EMC NEWS - Campbellford - â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heads are a precious commodity; they need to be protected.â&#x20AC;? And that is how Leah Carson, 17, a student at Campbellford District High School ended her speech at the recent Campbellford Legion, Branch 103, public speaking contest. She was one of 23 students who competed in this annual event. The contest is part of the Royal Canadian Legionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Youth and Education program. Carson, who was in the senior category, Grades 10 to 12, chose the subject â&#x20AC;&#x153;Concussions in Sports.â&#x20AC;? She talked about the danger of contact sports and spoke of the role Chris Nowinski, a former Ivy League football player who chose to become a wrestler in the WWE and how after a tag team match on â&#x20AC;&#x153;Raw that went terribly wrong,â&#x20AC;? he went to see concussion guru Dr. Robert Cantu. It was Dr. Cantu who wrote the first set of return to play guidelines for athletes after a concussion. Her speech was filled with information and statistics. She offered possible solutions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we were to impose stricter rules upon these athletes and their games, sports could become dramatically more safe,â&#x20AC;? said Carson. She has participated in the Legionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s public speaking since Grade 1, although she admits to taking a hiatus when she started high school, deciding to get back into it when she noticed she was starting to have difficulties making presentations in class. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was getting nervous which I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t used to so thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why I decided to get back into public speaking,â&#x20AC;? she explained. Her mom, Linda Carson, who is a teacher at St. Mary Catholic Elementary School here, always encouraged her. Carson said she has definitely gained â&#x20AC;&#x153;courage by getting up in front of people â&#x20AC;Ś and learned how to calm down beforehand.â&#x20AC;? She plans on being a teacher too. Carson and the other winners of the branch level competition will advance to the Zone event which takes place at the Trenton Branch 110 on March 24. Winners then advance to the provincial finals which are held the first Saturday in May. Sharon Hay who is the Youth Education chair with the Campbellford Legion, has been involved in public speaking for more than 40 years in one way or another. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a retired teacher and was involved in various capacities either as a teacher preparing students or as a judge,â&#x20AC;? she explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kind of a thrill for me to see this continuing on and see the children participating and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m constantly amazed at their confidence and the level of preparation and the variety that

The county will provide a number of opportunities over the next few months to hear from its residents and organizations involved in the delivery of housing and related support services. The county will be posting updates regarding the plan to its web site beginning March 1.

Raggedy Anns and teddy bears phenomenon shared By Sue Dickens

Kneeling in front of one of several display cases at the library in Campbellford, Beverley Vye holds a Raggedy Ann she made and her painting depicting the same popular rag doll that has put smiles on the faces of so many. The display remains at the library until at least the end of March break which begins March 9. She will be hosting a Teddy Bear Picnic at the library along with children’s librarian Mary Jo Mahoney on Friday, March 15. Photo: Sue Dickens

EMC Lifestyles - Campbellford Raggedy Ann is the stuffing, pun intended, that legends and magical moments are made of, a phenomenon that has survived almost 100 years. For Beverley Vye, the rag doll has woven itself into her life and the lives of her children and grandchildren and friends. Some of her collection can be found at the library in Campbellford on display for all to enjoy. Vye has been making Raggedy Anns since her daughter was born. “My daughter was born with a crippling club foot and was going into the hospital so I made her a Raggedy Ann to take with her,” said Vye, while holding one of her rag dolls, a rather large one. Her daughter Darla is now 51 and lives in Georgia. The longevity and wave of popularity of the rag doll has inspired many to gather the cotton material, stuffing, buttons for eyes, and yarn that has ranged in colour from a deep pinkish-red auburn to all shades of orange and even dirty blonde for the curly head of hair. From red checkered blouses to colourful dresses to red-and-white striped legs there are many variations of Raggedy Ann; they are wherever the creator’s imagination takes them. Although “The original costume of Raggedy Ann is nothing like it is now,” said Vye, the dolls all have a heart on

New hospice palliative care training for volunteers

EMC News - Campbellford - Community Care Northumberland (CCN) announces the new hospice palliative care training program for volunteers will begin Tuesday, March 5. Looking for a new challenge? Want to help people in a meaningful way in your community? Trained hospice palliative care volunteers provide support to individuals living with a life-threatening illness and this extends to the families, loved ones and caregivers of the individual. “The hospice training I received was an excellent course and the manual/curriculum covered was comprehensive,” said Judy Kraushar of Trent

Hills, a recent graduate of CCN’s Hospice palliative volunteer training program. “In a very short time a tangible bond was felt among all the students and the facilitators that I have never before experienced. Months later it still exists. Also, I was very happy to know that there is continuity with the way we all work with each client. I am finding my new role in the community very rewarding,” she added. Services include: visiting companionship which means providing light personal care and emotional, social and spiritual support; caregiver respite, which means providing neces-

sary respite for family members and caregivers; caregiver support which provides emotional, social and spiritual help for family and friends; and vigil support in which volunteers assist with end-of-life support for clients and family members. “Volunteerism is a core value for Community Care Northumberland,” said Trish Baird, executive director of Community Care Northumberland. “We appreciate the commitment made by new volunteers who undertake this specialized training in order to provide hospice palliative care to residents throughout our service area.” To become a hospice palliative care

volunteer an eight-week training program must be completed. The next training session which is held every Tuesday begins March 5 and runs until April 23, from 1 until 3 p.m. at the Multi-Care Lodge located at 174 Oliver Road, Campbellford (above the Community Care Northumberland program office). Space is limited so early registration is suggested. For additional information about the hospice palliative care programs or this volunteer opportunity, contact Chrystalla at the CCN program office in Campbellford at 705-653-5208 or at < >.

them. That is because the doll’s creator, illustrator Johnny Gruelle, who started his career as a newspaper cartoonist and made Raggedy Ann after being inspired by his own daughter who died at age 13 from a smallpox vaccination, has always put a heart somewhere on the beloved doll. From his first Raggedy Ann created from a family rag doll, an old toy that was faded and worn, to the many variations out there today the big smile on the face of the rag doll has brought smiles to so many faces. Raggedy Ann stories are part of the history of this doll which has captured the hearts of young and old including Vye. “The books are wonderful for children. They are stories but lessons too,” she said. Vye now belongs to a Raggedy Ann Facebook group which has members from all over the world. From this whimsical doll Vye moved on to making teddy bears. “In 1994 in my kitchen with a few other ladies we started a teddy bear workshop,” she said. They came up with a name, the Polar Hugg-A-Bear Club. Eventually the group decided to raise money and held Teddy Bear Picnics at Ferris Park. From dressing up and walking in the Santa Claus Parade to holding workshops for adults and children at the local library, the women continue to meet to this day, although it tends to be more social than anything else. However Vye is organizing a Teddy Bear Picnic at the library here with children’s librarian Mary Jo Mahoney. It takes place Friday, March 15, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. during March break for youngsters ages five to seven. “The children have to sign up beforehand and they can bring their own Teddy Bears,” she explained. At the spry age of 72, Vye still enjoys her pastimes. Like Raggedy Ann, “the tradition of the teddy bear is timeless,” she said with a twinkle in her eye. But she’s not done yet. “My biggest wish, it’s on my bucket list, is that somebody would open up a toy museum in Campbellford.” The gauntlet has been thrown.

“Every prayer is like a little light”

By Bill Freeman

EMC News - Havelock - The longing of strangers to be welcomed was the theme of this year’s World Day of Prayer service hosted by Havelock United Church. The ecumenical service was written by the women of France reflecting on the richness foreign cultures have brought to France while candidly noting that the lot of immigrants remains stark and challenging. There were stories of women who came to France from the Ukraine, Brazil, Rwanda, Cameroon and Germany, each with similar aspirations but not all attaining the life they had dreamed of. “Smothered by so much suffering and horror, I found sisters in Christ who consoled, helped and guided me,” says the voice of Marie-Léone who fled Rwanda where most of her family perished in the genocide. She has found hope and happiness in France. Not so happy was Irena’s story. Irena was lured to France by a fellow Ukrainian with promises of a better life only to have her personal identification taken away and then forced into prostitution. The service was about the “experiences of being a stranger” then finding solace in the welcoming and working to “build connections and create community where all are welcomed.

have the same feelings and the same heart,” Lewis says of the people she meets during her journeys which started in 1993 after years spent in Canada’s far north working with First Nations. “Russia was a totally different focus than what we were used to but our experience in the north prepared us for the work we’re doing internationally.” “I have a great deal of thankfulness for Canada and what we can offer those that have not. I also bring back life lessons. I am learning from them because in their situations many are thankful for what little they have.” “It’s an awesome thing that it’s a worldwide event, to think that across the globe women are coming together to celebrate one particular country,” said Shirley Patterson, a reader during the service “It’s a show of solidarity and support for those who don’t have the same freedoms as we have.”

World Day of Prayer was begun by the women of Canada and the United States in 1922 and is now observed in over 170 countries. Next year’s service, Streams of the Desert, is being written by the women of Egypt.

“France is a rich tapestry of stories, cultures and faiths where strangers long to be welcomed and heard,” the service said. “Because it’s international it’s like a blanket that covers the world today in prayer,” said guest speaker Diane Lewis, cofounder with her husband Gord, a pastor, of the Mission of Tears (Teaching, Education, Advocacy, Resourcing, Serving). The couple grew up in the Havelock area. “Because of the time zones it’s going on all day today and every prayer is like a little light that goes on in different countries around the world,” Lewis told the Northwest EMC. Lewis spoke about her work with women and children in Russia, South Africa and Haiti. “What does the word stranger mean in a foreign country?” she asked. “How does that apply to us here as well. We’re all strangers sometimes even in our familiar surroundings.” “Even though their skin tones are very different they


“I love the light, the composition: stunning palette which unifies beautifully the overall painting, the marking is lovely,” said Smith. Best Painting went to Anneke Newman of Hastings for her painting “Lingering Winter.” This is Newman’s first prize at this show. “It is a very realistic painting, yet lots of movement, so alive, fresh, lovely small brushwork,” said Smith. Best Photograph went to Margaret Hamilton of Keene for her photograph “Tranquil.” “Great composition, subtle, comfortable and confident,” said Smith. Best 3-D went to first-time winner Rob Cochrane of Roseneath for his carving of a woodland caribou antler titled “Completing the Circle.” “Beautiful continuity, great theme of fish within the antler shape,” said Smith. Honourable Mention for Painting went to first-time winner Judy Hopkins of Baltimore for her acrylic painting titled “Northumberland Barn.” “I love the palette, she speaks the same language as Wolf Kahn,” said Smith. Honourable Mention was given to Tom Groot of Grafton for his photograph Late Fall Afternoon. “I love the composi-

FourCAST and WrapAround, two places where mom looks for help By Sue Dickens

EMC News - Campbellford - In a recent issue of EMC we wrote about a Campbellford mother whose daughters and son have come face to face with the world of illegal drugs. We kept their names out of the paper to protect the children. Mrs. Mom (obviously not her real name) went to the police to report her son had been approached near a grade school by someone offering him drugs. We had the OPP response in our first article. Mrs. Mom then talked about how she had gone to the high school here where her daughters attend to talk with officials. She spoke highly of the support and response of those she met. Officials at the high school suggested she contact fourCAST which provides community addiction treatment programs and help. She said she is familiar with the organization. But this mother took it further and found a group called WrapAround which helps find services that families like hers need to move forward. She explained why she came to EMC. “I know there are parents out there going through the same thing wondering what can I do.” Donna Rogers, executive director at fourCAST in Peter-

borough told EMC, “We can work with kids and/or their families.” “Traditionally what happens when people make calls to us is we book appointments, start with an assessment of the needs they have,” she explained. “We wouldn’t need to know the student’s name. We could just consult.” There is an office in Campbellford, which is open parttime, at the hospital, but if they prefer to go outside of their community, there is another one in Cobourg. “We’re the gateway into the kinds of services they might need, whether it be detox facilities or residential treatment programs,” said Rogers. “The most prevalent problem substance is alcohol,” she said, noting that admissions to fourCAST number around 50 to 60 annually through the Campbellford location. In Cobourg they see about 250 people each year. “Some present with more than one substance of choice, but 65 per cent of those presenting identified alcohol, 25 per cent identified cannabis, 15 per cent identified cocaine and 18 per cent opiates. “Keep in mind the context of these numbers. These are people who sought out treatment. This

isn’t the [total] population experiencing problems,” said Rogers. From a county-wide (Northumberland) perspective they see about 310 people yearly. FourCAST also provides outpatient service but “are wait listing.” There is no fee. Jane Ashmore is the co-ordinator with WrapAround which covers Northumberland County. “At any one time we have about 35 families we are working with. “Five to ten always in the Trent Hills area,” said Ashmore. “Often what happens for families and youth is they get disconnected and lose their sense of hope that life can get better,” she added. “We get them connected back

to their community to the things they enjoy, the things they want to do, in a strength-based process … It’s always about what the family wants, what the youth wants, what they see is important. “We wrap the services around the family.” A WrapAround facilitator tries to work as “glue” for the family, friends, community and services.

Detention leads to music for Glee Club cast By Richard Turtle

EMC Entertainment - Stirling With March Break approaching, members of the Stirling Festival Theatre’s Young Company will find themselves not only back at school, but in detention. But, says first time director Kate Nicholas, they’ll sing and dance their way out of it. The most recent offering, Glee Club Confidential, will be featured on the Stirling Theatre stage from March 12 to 17 with a total of eight shows slated for morning, afternoon and evening. Nicholas, who has been involved in eight past productions by the young company, has taken on the duties of assistant director before but the upcoming show marks her debut as a director. And she’s already quite certain the show will be a crowd-pleaser. “I’ve got the best cast I could possibly ask for,” she says, noting the show is coming together well. “I think they’re the best cast I’ve ever worked with.” The list of 11 performers includes several returning company members as well as a few new faces. Most, says Nicholas, hail from Stirling and Belleville. They take on a range of student roles familiar to many, from teacher’s pet to

jock to drama queen, with cast members Emma Good, Natalie Cummings and Bronson Kozdas playing the school’s librarian, gym teacher and vice principal. The irreverent students who wind up in detention as a result of an unauthorized flash mob in the library include Rylee Bremner, Sam Orr, Riley Kay, Kyle Ellis, Rowan Vance, Niamh Shudall, Ella Bannon and Dallin Whitford. “It’s sort of a cross between Glee and The Breakfast Club,” Nicholas says of the script she co-wrote with SFT Managing Director David Vanderlip. “And there’s lots of music. There’s lots and lots of music,” she adds. So playing choreographer has also been part of her directorial duties as well. “There are some show tunes, some classics, Pink Floyd, it’s really a hodge-podge,” she says of the music selected for its relevance to various moments in the show. Also working behind the scenes on the show are Jen Caddick, Nancy Garrod, Annie Nicholas, Donna Carlisle and Brian Kay. Tickets for the show are $8 and available at the SFT box office or by calling 613-395-2100.

Stirling Festival Theatre Young Company cast members are currently in rehearsal for their March Break show Glee Club Confidential.

Pre-Party for Peck will raise funds for Blues in the School By Sue Dickens

EMC News - Campbellford Pre-Party for Peck, a Blues in the Schools (BITS) fund raiser, brings the award-winning 24th Street Wailers back to the Aron Theatre this month. The pre-party helps raise money for the Party for Peck which began about three years ago when Jane Archer and her son Matt organized the event as a memorial to her son Jesse “Peck” Archer, a talented musician who was

tragically killed. Posted on the Party for Peck Facebook page are the words, “Together, we will help ensure that the youth of Trent Hills will have the opportunity to enrich their lives with music! I know Jesse Archer would be very proud.” The focus is to help bring BITS to schools in Trent Hills. “The two schools selected to get the program this year offered to pay half the cost,

providing matching funding,” said Jane Archer. Students from St. Mary Catholic Elementary School in Campbellford and Percy Centennial Public School in Warkworth will participate this time around. Last year BITS was brought to Kent School and again to Percy by The Loyal Blues Fellowship of Belleville, which which has a BITS program in place. The two schools selected this year will meet Canadian blues and roots musician Rick Fines who has been songwriting, recording and touring for over 25 years, teaching the BITS program for more than half of that time. He will spend one week at each school, March 18 to 22 at St. Mary’s and April 8 to 12 at Percy school. “Students are presented with a history of blues music from work songs to Rock ’n’ Roll. This will give the students a chance to see what a huge influence blues music has had on all western popular music and sets the stage

At the end they’ve created a song they will perform and they will record in a rough form,” Fines explained. But to do all this, the $1,500 required for each week needs to be raised. Pre-Party for Peck is a major part of this fund raising. The 24th Street Wailers will be joined by the Lindsay Barr Band Live at the Aron from 7:30 to 10 p.m. on March 16. The event will be followed by an after-party at Rubbs Barbeque Bistro featuring

Belgium’s Mechelen is rising phoenix-like

I passed this bell and several others as I ascended the spiral staircase within Rumbold Tower.

I ascended the more than 500 steps to the top of the Rumbold Tower. its eye-popping views along the river, and I even tried an appetizer that featured a Mechelen specialty: cuckoo. The demise of the old Lamot Brewery seemed catastrophic at the time, but out of this closure has emerged a new, modern, welcome addition to the waterfront area—and even the brewery’s former offices have been replaced by Puro, a plush split-level bar and restaurant. Another welcome addition to the area is the Hotel Ve (where I stayed). This building, built in 1923, was a factory used for smoking fish, after all, it’s located on the Fish Market and beside the river. Now it has re-emerged as a trendy hotel (part of the Mercure chain), and instead of hiding its history, it revels in it. For example, the old factory chimney is now used as the hotel’s main staircase, and it has been painted black, to simulate its former sootiness. By using such interesting strategies and techniques, the hotel has managed to combine the building’s industrial elements with contemporary architecture and luxury. Such interesting renovations and innovations are having the added bonus of luring more visitors back to this beautiful city, and once the tourists arrive, they’ll soon realize what this intriguing destination has to offer. For example, they’ll find eight historic churches in the city centre itself, as well as the Grote Markt, the large city square with its well

preserved historic houses, the Mechelen Town Hall which contains both the Cloth Hall and the Palace of the Great Council, the Aldermen’s House dating from the 13th century and now housing the City Museum, a bust of Ludwig van Beethoven (his grandfather resided here), and a bronze statue of Mechelen’s mascot, Op-Sinjoorke. There’s also Margaret of York’s Palace which is now the City Theatre, Margaret of Austria’s Palace which is now a Court of Justice,

Brusselpoort which is the last remaining city gate, the Royal Carillon School, the largest carillon school in the world, and the beguinages formerly communities for single women. I visited Mechelen’s two beguinages and strolled through the area’s quiet, narrow streets. It was difficult to associate the solitude of this area with the nearby hustle and bustle of the city centre. The beguines were a religious movement of women who dedicated

along the way, to catch my breath. I then emerged to an awesome overview of the city on the Sky Walk platform; on a clear day, glimpses of both Antwerp and Brussels are possible. I then had to make the long descent, for there’s no elevator in this historic tower and, of course, I visited the interior of St. Rumbold’s Cathedral, too. Mechelen is certainly rich in history, and I found lots to see and do here, but I was also impressed by the ongoing changes and improvements being made, including such regeneration projects as the newly completed Holocaust and Human Rights Museum located in a former transit camp, the floating walkway along the Dijle River, and the re-opening of some of the city’s picturesque canals that had been bricked over centuries ago.

EMC Lifestyles - In Greek mythology, the phoenix was a special bird that had the ability to rise again. Out of the ashes of the old bird would emerge a new one. Well, I believe that bit of mythology can be applied to the historically important city of Mechelen, which is located in the centre of Belgium, about halfway between Brussels and Antwerp. After all, it probably peaked as a political and trade centre back in the 15th and 16th centuries, for the highly lucrative cloth trade brought the area great wealth and power at that time. It served as the seat of the Superior Court and became the capital of the Low Countries. However, as time passed, it diminished in significance, replaced by its neighbours, Brussels and Antwerp. Today, it seems to be undergoing a lot of positive changes—and a kind of rebirth. Mechelen’s present revitalization is probably best seen in the former Lamot Brewery, for this was shut down several years ago and, as my guide confided, had become a real “eyesore.” However, that dilapidated building on the Vismarkt (Fish Market) has now undergone a fantastic, vibrant change and has been “reborn” as the Lamot Congress and Heritage Centre. This ultramodern glass structure also includes a popular restaurant, the Grand Café Lamot, a fine dining establishment that’s located right on the banks of the city’s Dijle River. I dined here, with

their lives to God but didn’t become nuns. Therefore, they didn’t lose all their worldly possessions nor take lifelong vows. Instead, they chose to live together in this inner village, this cloistered community, in a grouping of small houses with an inner court. This choice of lifestyle was made for a number of reasons, including the harsh reality of the time (they began here in the 13th century), for there were many more women than men (as many men had died via work accidents, battles, etc.). I also checked out what turned out to be my favourite tourist attraction here, the St. Rumbold’s Tower, the cathedral tower which dominates the city centre. I ascended the more than 500 stairs (yes, it’s quite a climb!) to the top of the spiral staircase, stopping at six rooms, including the crane, bell, and carillon rooms,

Smoke-Free Buildings: Together, let’s clear the air

By Doreen Boville Health Promoter, Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge District Health Unit

EMC Lifestyles - Friends of mine recently peeled a badly faded “Welcome to Our Smoke-Free Home” sticker from their front door. A fixture there for more than a decade, the sticker reminded visitors that smoking was not allowed in their home. Removing the sticker was an easy decision for these people, who were

secure in the knowledge that views of indoor smoking had greatly changed in recent years. Once tolerated, we have grown used to laws that ban smoking in all indoor public places in Ontario. Even in homes, it is now more common to see smokers lighting up outside rather than indoors. Change is in the air, and that is evident

Percy Minor Hockey hosting 26 teams

in the growing demand for smoke-free, multi-unit dwellings such as apartments, townhouses, and condominiums. The Smoke-Free Ontario Act only bans smoking in indoor “common” areas such as hallways, lobbies, stairwells and elevators. The law does not apply to individual units. However, interest in providing more protection is on the rise. A recent survey by the Ontario Smoke-Free Housing Coalition found one-third of residents who live in multi-unit dwellings were regularly exposed to second-hand smoke. When asked to choose between two similar buildings—one that allowed smoking and the other that did not—80 per cent of survey respondents said they would prefer to live in the smoke-free building. Creating a smoke-free multi-unit dwelling is possible, and is happening in the Health Unit’s area. There is forward movement in Northumberland County on this initiative. There are also building operators in Haliburton, Lindsay and Fenelon Falls who have already made their multi-unit premises smoke-free. In the case of the Fenelon Falls building operator, the waiting list for tenants has not declined despite a smoke-free policy. Smoke-free, multi-unit dwellings make a lot of sense. For residents, smoke-free buildings provide protection against deadly second-hand smoke that can seep in through open doors and windows, shared vents, outlets

and ceiling fixtures. An additional benefit of a smoke-free policy is reducing exposure to “third-hand” smoke. This is the tobacco smoke that gets absorbed into carpets, walls, ceilings, furniture, clothing, fabrics and other surfaces. The cancer-causing chemicals in third-hand smoke can be inhaled by people or absorbed through their skin, and can be just as dangerous as inhaling second-hand smoke. Landlords, building owners and condo boards also stand to benefit. Typically, there is more demand for smoke-free units, a reduced risk of fire, less cost to turn over a nonsmoking unit, and better resale value. No-smoking policies in multi-unit dwellings are also legal and enforceable. New or newly renovated rental buildings can be immediately designated as 100 per cent smoke-free, meaning all new tenants sign leases that include the nosmoking policy. For existing rental buildings, the process may take more time. As rental units occupied by smokers turn over, the new tenants will sign leases with the nosmoking clause and the building will gradually become totally smoke-free. In the case of a condominium complex, because it operates as a corporation, the process is a bit different but a smoke-free policy can still be implemented and enforced. Everyone wins with smoke-free, multi-unit dwellings. Together, let’s clear the air!

This weekend 26 teams arrive in Warkworth to compete in the third annual Maplefest Tournament being hosted by Percy Minor Hockey. All three arenas will see some games as ice times are booked in not only Warkworth’s arena, but in Hastings and Campbellford. In last year’s tournament at this Junior Tykes’ game, Stirling’s goalie Zachary Demers, made several saves. Picking up steam after a slow start Percy won this game 7 - 5. Photo: Sue Dickens

“Our tournament has become a big hit with players.” “Last year we had three divisions, 22 teams in total, this year we have four divisions, 26 teams. “It’s a huge amount of work,” she noted. The divisions include Jr. Tyke, Atom, Bantam and Peewee. Teams are coming from Tweed, Ennismore, Baltimore, Cobourg, Peterborough, Norwood, Havelock, Oshawa, Clarington, West Lincoln, Manvers, Cayuga and of course Warkworth, to name a few. Entry fee is $550 per team. Three games are guaranteed. Saturday games happen all day from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. in Hastings and Warkworth arenas with two early morning games at the arena in Campbellford. “We end up with 39 games between Friday night and Sunday night,” commented Russell. The finals happen Sunday, all at the arena in Warkworth. Russell said that Percy has Jr. Tyke

and Atom teams entered but no Bantam or Peewee teams. Jr. Tyke teams play Saturday only at the arena in Hastings with some Atom, Peewee and Bantam teams from out of town interspersed throughout the day. “This is all house league hockey. We’re kind of winding down so we use the Maplefest as the end of the year tournament,” she explained. The tournament is played the same weekend as the Warkworth Maple Syrup Festival which organizers hope will mean more spectators at the arenas. “Our tournament has become a big hit with players,” said Russell. Not only does it bring people to Warkworth, the organizers also promote Trent Hills. “We give teams a package with brochures of Trent Hills along with a few donations … World’s Finest Chocolate is always very good to donate,” said Russell. There may still be a need for volunteers so anyone interested can contact Russell at 905-344-7709 or email <pmhatournaments@gmail. com>. For more info check out their web site: <>.

Soccer Club wants scorekeeping kept in game

from soccer is something the Hastings like sporting bodies across the country, EMC Sports - Hastings - Drop- Thunder Soccer Club opposes. is in the process of implementing The Ontario Soccer Association, a Long-Term Player Development ping scorekeeping and wins and losses (LTPD) program that takes the sport in a new direction by eliminating scorekeeping, standings, tournaments, championship trophies etc. for youth players under 12. “It’s time to measure success differently,” says Alex Chiet, the OSA’s chief technical officer. The LTPD is a “culture shift on how we deliver soccer to youngsters,” says Chiet. “We are simply not properly developing the majority of those youngsters who enjoy and actually have a passion and skill for this sport,” Graham Sanders (far right), president of the Hastings Soccer Club, is he says. joined by Tracy and Dayne Rycett at Thunder’s registration at the HastThe shift doesn’t sit well with the Hastings Club’s board nor with the ings Civic Centre.

EMC News - Norwood - The Norwood Lions Club will kick off fund raising for the proposed $300,000 splash pad during their annual Victoria Day Weekend Italian Feast on May 18. The Lions have committed to raising $100,000 toward the cost of the project with the balance to be realized through grants and will oversee the project through its completion when it will be handed over to the municipality which will operate the splash pad which will be built at the community centre. The township, which has offered its approval in principle, will also help the Lions Club with the “fund-raising structure” of the project. The club will be “vigorously approaching” local businesses and individuals and applying for grants from a wide range of government and private sources to make sure the project is completed, says committee member Ron Scott. “If we want to continue as a vibrant community that is attractive to newcomers and businesses alike we must continue to develop in this type of area,” Scott said. “The one thing that should complete the [playground and park area] and make it even more attractive to locals and visitors alike would be a splash pad,” he said. Scott says the splash pad committee is continuing to do its research before it settles on a final design

or establishes a firm price. It will also work with the municipality to determine where the exactly the splash pad will be located; proximity to the playground, shelter, skateboard park and trail and drainage capabilities will be major considerations. The club is preparing a brochure that will outline this information for the general public and potential donors. Making this information as widely available as possible will underscore the importance of the project and the importance of community fund raising, says Scott. In conjunction with fund raising the Club will install a thermometer to track money raised. The cub plans on staging several splash pad fund raisers over the next few years, Scott says. One exciting venture is a summer concert centre near the new picnic shelter adjacent to Free to be Children Park. There will also be a silent auction in the community centre’s Millennium Room as part of local Canada Day celebrations. Completing the splash pad will take a “concerted effort of all members of the community,” says Scott, He says the Lions have “no doubt” they can pull it off if the general public gets behind the project like they have with other major community initiatives like the Asphodel-Norwood Community Centre and the McNeil-Metcalfe Playground.

London Olympian rides into town

EMC News - Norwood - There was some real Team Canada red and white in Norwood Saturday. Olympic team eventing member Michele Mueller was in the ring at the Small Victory Farm equestrian centre Saturday leading a clinic for 14 young riders from around the region. The Port Perry resident was part of Team Canada’s five-member three-day eventing squad that finished thirteenth at the London Olympics where she rode her long-time equine partner Amistad. Mueller brought both enthusiasm and expertise to the Norwood-area farm where her

clinic focus was on “rhythm and balance.” “I love teaching; it’s a blast,” the owner of Cedar Valley Stables on Scugog Island told the Northwest EMC. “But it can be kind of nerve-racking when a horse and rider get stuck in a certain spot. You need to know when to push, when to drive and when to back off. “You almost want to do it for them,” she said with a laugh. Mueller, 50, has been in love with horses since she was seven and received her first horse as a Christmas present from her parents. “I think it was in the genes. My mom was into

horses and I can always remember drawing horses and looking at horse books. It was just in me, not something that when I was 12 or 15 decided I wanted to do.” The farm she and her husband Bill own is the farm her parents moved to when they realized their daughter had a passion for horses. Her greatest pleasure and satisfaction is “taking a young horse and watching it grow. “Just the camaraderie I have with my horse and that they will actually do this stuff on four-star courses. They just do it because you ask them to; you can’t force a horse.” It took Mueller eight years to bring Amistad, now retired from elite competition, along to world class Olympic level. Mueller didn’t set out to be an Olympian but

as she moved along and attained her upper levels she “decided it was within reach; I can actually do this.” Success on three-star courses and a top-ten finish at the four-star Rolex Kentucky three-day event, one of only four international events offering the highest level of competition, confirmed her growing confidence. The tenth-place finish was “more than I ever thought I could do. After that I said ‘If you can do the Rolex you can get to the Olympics.’” “Everything was awesome” in London even though Amistad got injured in the cross-country event and she had to withdraw. “That kind of sticks a knife in the heart [but] it was an opportunity that came and I took it and we did our best.”

Juvie Colts win away from final By Bill Freeman

EMC Sports - Campbellford - The Campbellford River Inn Motel Juvenile Colts are a win away from another shot at the OMHA “CC-C” championship. The Colts are up 2 - 0 in their best-of-five series against the Schomberg Red Wings after two straight 3 - 1 wins over the weekend. The team can punch their ticket to the OMHA final with a win in Schomberg March 9. Koel Newton, Eric Hudson and Davis Beamish each had two-point games in the Colts’ series-opening win at home Saturday afternoon. Newton and Hudson had a goal and an assist while Beamish picked up two helpers. Newton’s goal was set up by Beamish and Michele Mueller, a member of the Canadian three-day eventing team at the London 2012 Hudson while Hudson found the back of the Wings net with help from Jared Lowe.

Spirit of the Hills hosts free demonstration EMC Lifestyles - Warkworth - Brian Smith, figurative artist from Toronto, gave “an inspiring free demonstration” recently at the Warkworth Town Hall Centre for the Arts. The event was hosted by Spirit of the Hills Northumberland Arts Association. Diane E. Arsenault, an artist and member of the association, organized the event and said, “He displayed his abilities in abstracting the figure using a

limited palette of acrylics and soft chalk pastels while painting the image of Port Hope model and artist, Maia Desjardins.” Close to 50 people attended the Saturday morning event. Smith shared a selection of his finished works on paper, confirming for everyone present his outstanding reputation as a classical drawer and painter of the figure and showing how he has become a master of

figurative abstraction. He used layer upon layer of colours, blacks, greys, shades of blue, green, orange and highlights of white, red and green. Smith has taught classes and workshops on life drawing, portraiture and figurative abstraction for more than 20 years. He has been on the faculty of the Ontario College of Art and Design, The Koffler Centre for the Arts, Haliburton

School of The Arts, Curry’s Art School, Visual Arts Mississauga and Neilson Park Creative Centre and conducts Master Classes in his own studio. The Brian Smith Figurative Abstraction Workshop for May 4 and 5 has already sold out.

EMC News - Peterborough County Access to nature contributes positively to the health of individuals, says Allan Seabrooke, CAO and secretary-treasurer of the Otonabee Region Conservation Authority (ORCA). The opposite is also true, Seabrooke said during the conservation authority’s annual general meeting in Norwood, with an unhealthy environment directly linked to the declining health of individuals. “The health of our environment is a shared responsibility in our community and ORCA is just one player, one partner in our community,” he said. The AGM’s theme was “Healthy by Nature” and emphasized the role ORCA plays in contributing to the overall health of people living in the

watershed region. “Pollution in our environment is contributing to the decline of health of individuals,” Seabrooke said. With that, provincial health care budgets continue to grow “exponentially” and “for the most part” money is used to care for the sick. Greater attention to prevention is “the obvious solution,” says Seabrooke, “and a healthy environment would definitely contribute. “Access to nature can provide huge benefits to future

generations [as] it contributes to overall personal wellbeing.” What ORCA wants to stress are the “positive effects nature and a healthy environment can have [on] families.” ORCA will work hard to support its Healthy by Nature theme in 2013 and encourage local residents and visitors to enjoy some of the 2,000 acres of property it owns. “Many of these areas are very undeveloped and simply provide an unexplored

place,” Seabrooke said. The organization’s new watershed planning and regulation policy now provides “clear direction” to the public, stakeholders and developers and that has translated into a better relationship with all parties, he says. The conservation authority is completing a series of fact sheets to “help people understand the process in a concise manner.” Stewardship and environmental education programs, tree-plantings, shoreline stabilization initiatives, public events like the international trails festival and children’s water festival all work toward the theme, he said. Continued infrastructure investment will move ahead like the Lang Dam public walkway project slated to be finished in October. The replacement of the 40-year-old structure, and improved parking, will improve accessibility. The federal government, Peterborough County and the province have joined ORCA as partners in the project. ORCA will continue to partner with its member municipalities on various studies and provide staff expertise in flood reduction and safety. It will also continue to pursue long-range scientific research to “inform decision-making Allan Seabrooke, CAO and ORCA secretary-treasur- and the policies [it] has in place for efer spoke to guests at their annual general meeting fective environmental protection.” “Scientific research is a big part of about the organization’s 2013 Health by Nature what we do,” he said. theme.
