“Let’s Go Country”

EMC News - Brighton - Last week, the Municipality of Brighton, along with a host of emergency services personnel, prepared for the worst. According to the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act, every municipality in the province must complete an annual exercise to test their plan for coping with disaster. In all, Brighton, Cramahe Township, Trent Hills and Alnwick-Haldimand were involved in the mock emergency drill. “The obvious reason is to get better at what we do and learn by our mistakes so we’re more prepared for the real thing,” said media officer Mike Thompson. The simulation involved dealing with a heavy snowstorm in the area, dumping 60 centimetres over the past 32 hours with forecasts predicting another 45 centimetres on the way. Winds, gusting at 80 kilometres an hour, will increase to 96 kilometres an hour, over the next 14 hours. As of 10:30 a.m., some parts of Brighton have been without hydro for six hours.

cility on County Road 64 has broken down and the public works director has requested activation of the emergency operations centre because of flooding concerns as well as the overwhelming road and weather conditions. Post-graduate students of the emergency management program at Fleming College developed the scenario. “This is our largest exercise so far,” explained program co-ordinator Rod Manley. “The purpose here is having neighbouring municipalities work together. That has always been a challenge to us; we do our own part well but we also need to communicate with our neighbours.” “There are three objectives to today’s exercise,” he explained. “Number one is the effective communication between all participating municipalities. One of the measures today was, did we effectively, as Brighton, communicate with the county and our neighbours. “Number two is actively requesting resources as required from one or Please see “Incident” on page 3

EMC News - Quinte West - It was Mayors for Meals day at the VON Diner’s Club at the Trenton Lions Club hall on March 20. Mayor John Williams helped serve lunch to seniors along with some staff and councillors. “The mayor brought his sidekicks,” said Betty Clost of the VON. The seniors loved it. Salad and beef stew, desserts and coffee were well appreciated as city staff and city councillors dished out the meal. “It’s beef stew served with panache,” Clost said with a laugh. Dressed in long aprons along with the


mayor were Director of Finance David Clazie, CAO Gary Dyke, Fire Chief John Whelan (the ladies over 80 love me!), and Councillors Bob Wannamaker, Terry Cassidy and Sally Freeman. The delicious meal was prepared by Cindy of the Mason Jar with help in the kitchen. “You can eat it right off your shirt!” said Mayor John Williams with a big smile. “The VON do a great job in the community.” He said the Diner’s Club is a great way for seniors to get together once a month with a little fellowship.

Now for a different delegation By Jack Evans

EMC News - Belleville - Belleville council has seen hundreds of delegations over the years. With modern electronic aids, there have been power point presentations. Others have come with large numbers. Monday, a group called the Belleville Four entertained council with a mini floor show to support their idea of a surcharge on hockey games in aid of food banks. Spokesman for the group, Ted Ryczko, cited

the late Stompin’ Tom Connors, himself a solid booster of food banks, as their inspiration. He suggested a “50 cent” ticket surcharge designated for food banks at all paid admission hockey games. He and his supporters reinforced their point by playing his guitar while the makeshift quartet used Connors’ famous Hockey Song with new words: “We the Belleville four want the food banks all to score.” Besides Ryczco were his wife, Cathy,  and long time Belleville food bank booster Charles

Burghraef and his wife, Anne. In other business, Belleville will be losing two more long-established landmarks. Council approved a demolition permit for the historic Wharf Street Debating Club on South Front Street, a focal activity for 100 years. Council was told the building is beyond repair. Council was also advised that the rest of the Hotel Quinte structure will also be torn down in the near future following a major fire over the Christmas holiday season.

This ensemble called themselves the “Belleville Four” as they entertained city council Monday. With leader Ted Ryzco on the guitar, left to right are Cathy Ryzco, Anne and Charlie Burghraef. Photo: Jack Evans

Manley mentioned a new tool in dealing with emergency situations – the incident management system – being rolled out across the province in the next two years. The system provides standardized organizational structures, functions, processes and terminology for use at all levels of emergency response in Ontario. “Processes will be even better defined,” he said. Being prepared means that residents should have enough food, water, medications and other supplies on hand to meet their needs for three days after an emergency occurs says Thompson. “The municipality asks all members of the community to be able to look after themselves for 72 hours, in the case of an emergency,” he said. “It’s your part in helping us work through an emergency.”

Loyalist College celebrates varsity athletes EMC Sports - Belleville - Loyalist College proudly announced the winners of the 45th Annual Athletic Awards at a banquet on March 20, recognizing the achievements of Loyalist’s varsity athletes and their coaches. “Our athletes work hard yearround to be strong players in their respective sports, as well as achieving their personal best in the classroom,” said Jim Buck, Manager of Athletics and Campus Recreation. “The leadership and determination they have demonstrated amazes us year after year, which is why it’s important to formally recognize their contributions. For our graduating athletes,

the banquet is a last chance to celebrate everything they’ve achieved as a Loyalist Lancer, and we’re proud to celebrate with them.” Among various athletic highlights, the Women’s Basketball team advanced to the Ontario Championships for the second straight season. Loyalist had an additional three teams qualify for play-offs, including the Women’s Rugby team, earning their first ever play-off berth. “It feels amazing to be named Female Athlete of the Year,” said Customs Border Services student Samantha Goff. “The time management and teamwork skills I have taken from varsity sports will transfer

well to that field.” “It is great to be recognized for all of my hard work these past few years,” said Male Athlete of the Year Patrick Kalala, a Community and Justice Services Worker student. “Overall, this has been an experience I’ll never forget.” Loyalist College Athletic Award winners include: The Bob McKendrick Award was presented to Dustin Mahoney, as the individual who contributed the most to campus recreation and outdoor education. The Bob Young Award for academic and athletic excellence was presented to Jared Moelker. The Arthur McFarlane Award for graduating students, who have made an outstanding contribution to Loyalist Athletics, was presented to Damone Donaldson. The Larry Cook Award was presented to Justin deHaan and Robyn Beauchamp, as the student athletes who best exemplify the values of fair play, integrity and commitment. The Dave Butler Award was presented to Jenny Richardson and Shelby Lough, as the student athletes who, through their enthusiasm and love of the game, attract others to participate.

EMC News - Belleville - Local non-profit organization Pathways to Independence has once again been honoured by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) International, for the second consecutive time receiving the highest level of accreditation from the organization. “We were very, very thrilled to get the survey report back,” said Deborah Paus, Manager of Human Resources and Administration. “It’s wonderful for us for the second time in a row to get the highest accreditation possible.” As part of the CARF accreditation, CARF staff visit facilities across the world to conduct interviews and inspections of thousands of health and human service providers. Accreditations come in either one-, two-, or three-year terms, with three years being the highest level. “It assures our clients, the people we support, our families, our funders, our community partners and the broader community that we have been reviewed against very exacting standards, and that the services that we provide to the people we support have been deemed to have met or exceeded those standards,” Paus said. “Our staff are extremely professional, and provide a very high quality of service to the people we support, so I think it reflects well on them, I think that was reflected many, many times in the accreditation report.” Pathways to Independence is a not-for-profit organization that provides programs and services to adults with acquired brain injury, developmental disabilities, and dual diagnosis in the eastern and southeastern regions of Ontario, including the Belleville region.

OLG president visits Belleville cerns around gaming facilities. Crime, he said, is a question that has been asked and answered, as gaming facilities are often one of the safest places in the communities they operate in. In some instances, Phillips said communities have requested facilities be built in unsafe areas, as the hundreds of cameras, security guards and police presence often do more to dissuade potential criminals. “We have a considerable presence in these facilities, and the record to show that,” Phillips said. “When you talk to [the mayors] about the concerns that they had when we first arrived, they say to a person is that they didn’t materialize.”

OLG president and CEO Rod Phillips spoke to a Belleville and District Chamber of Commerce luncheon on Tuesday, March 19.

EMC News - Belleville - Plans for a casino in the city of Belleville are moving ahead, and a recent visit by OLG President and CEO Rod Phillips confirmed that they hope to have found an independent operator for the potential facility by the end of the year, likely sometime in November. “It’s not just about jobs, or just about money for the host municipality, it’s also about how a gaming facility fits into the community,” Phillips told roughly 50 people at a Belleville and District Chamber of Commerce luncheon. “There’s so much potential for these gaming facilities to become integrated parts of the community.” In an about 30-minute presentation, Phillips addressed both the potential benefits and the potential concerns around a gaming facility in Belleville, but fell short of making any promises. Rather, much of the speech revolved around the modernization of the OLG into a more efficient, modern organization that places more of a focus on the consumer. “Another important focus is going to be our continued commitment around responsible gambling,” Phillips said. “We spend more than any other jurisdiction in North America, $53 million a year, to support responsible gambling programs, and to make sure the people who have problems with their gambling, get the kind of support that they need.” Once an independent contractor is found, only then will plans be made regarding what kind of facility could come to Belleville. However, Phillips compared a potential Belleville facility to one located in Prince Edward, which employs over 400 people ranging in salary from $40,000 to $60,000 per year. Add this to the benefits of a host funding agreement, and Phillips was adamant on the potential benefits to the communities in which OLG sites operate. “Our facilities, when they are located in a community produce funding through a host funding agreement,” he said. “That host funding can be used for anything that that municipality deems necessary … roads, transit, heritage sites, art and culture whatever the priorities are that the host determines.” In 2012, OLG provided $110 million to host communities across Ontario, $2 million of which was donated directly to charity. OLG directly contributes over $130 million to charities across Ontario, making the organization one of the largest contributors to charity in the province. “We think that’s just another way we contribute to local communities,” Phillips said. Finally, Phillips briefly addressed perceived potential issues and con-

EMC News - Quinte West - Northumberland/ Quinte West MP Rick Norlock spoke to reporters last week about the Budget 2013 presented by federal Minister of Finance Jim Flaherty on March 21. “The number one item is the Canada Job Grant,” Norlock said. “We always get complaints there are not enough skilled workers. People need training to upgrade those skills.” A new Canada Job Grant will provide up to $5,000 to help pay for training for new employment. The government will require that the provinces and private sector employer match these grants. Norlock said developing programs to create affordable housing is another important aspect of the

budget. “Habitat for Humanity is a great example,” he said. Norlock said Loyalist College and Fleming College are in the forefront to assist in skills development. Pathways to Education will also help keep kids in school. Money will be given to manufacturers through tax breaks for new equipment. The government has raised the supplement for veterans to cover funeral costs, doubling it to $7,300. “We still have veterans from World War Two and the Korean War,” he said. “Some of these are impoverished. The older vets have been dogging us for the last several years. Legion members have talked to me and said they are subsidizing some of these funerals, along with funeral directors. We finally got the message.” Norlock said this is a very “lean budget” with no fat in it. “There will be more money later, down the road,” he promised. He noted the government has been building infrastructure since 2002 and is continuing with $70 billion for bridges and roads. He added the government is not raising taxes. Wilkinson and Company in Trenton commented on the budget. “While the budget does not propose any adjustments in the general corporate or personal tax rates, it does propose an increase in the tax on dividends from privately owned companies. This will make it more costly for small business owners to distribute their funds out of their corporations. “Other tax measures are directed at International Tax Evasion, Avoidance and Foreign Reporting. Additionally there are some positive tax incentives for manufacturing businesses and an increase in the capital gains exemption.”

Kurds and Turks: End of the War?

EMC Editorial - “We are at a point today when the guns will fall silent and ideas will speak,” declared Abdullah Ocalan, leader of the Kurdish insurgency in Turkey, on March 21. “Turks and Kurds fought together [in World War I], and launched the Turkish parliament together in 1922. The basis of the new struggle consists of ideas, ideology and democratic politics.” And with that, he declared a cease-fire. Ocalan has declared cease-fires Gwynne Dyer before, but the Turkish government made no substantial concessions on Kurdish rights so the fighting resumed. Nor is “democratic politics” a phrase you would readily link to Abdullah Ocalan, who tolerates no dissent in the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), the organisation he created thirty years ago to fight for independence from Turkey. But this time really may be different. After three decades of low-level guerilla war in southeastern Turkey (about a thousand deaths a year), both sides have concluded they cannot win: the Kurds cannot win their independence, and Turkey cannot crush the armed Kurdish resistance to its repressive rule. So Ocalan has stopped demanding independence and now talks about local self-government, Kurdish language rights, and an end to repression. The other thing that’s different this time is that Ocalan has actually been talking to Turkey’s prime minister, Recep Tayyib Erdogan, since last October. Not face-to-face, of course, but Ocalan has been held prisoner on Imrali island, about two hours south of Istanbul, ever since Turkish agents captured him in Kenya in 1999, so it has been easy for Erdogan’s intelligence chief, Hakan Fidan, to go back and forth between the two men. There is every reason to believe, therefore, that Ocalan’s cease-fire declaration, though apparently unilateral, was really co-ordinated between the two leaders. In which case the next steps that Ocalan promised—the release of prisoners by both sides and the withdrawal of the 3,000 PKK fighters in southeastern Turkey into the adjacent parts of northern Iraq–were presumably agreed in advance too. This is not a process that will eventually lead to the emergence of an independent Kurdish state. That goal, promised to the Kurds by the victors at the end of World War I, has been the dream of four generations of Kurds, but it is no closer than ever.

To bring all 30 million Kurds into a single, independent state would mean redrawing the borders of four major nations–Turkey, Iran, Iraq and Syria–and that is not going to happen. But Kurds already have full self-government (including a powerful army) in northern Iraq, and the Syrian Kurds have effectively thrown off Damascus’s rule in the east of that country, so a lesser Kurdish dream now seems almost within the realm of the possible. That would be a large area, still divided by national borders but with free movement across them, where the Kurds of the whole region could live, work and teach their children in their own language. More than half that area would be in southeastern Turkey, so the deal that Ocalan and Erdogan may make, if things work out, is vital to this project. There was never any real chance that a Kurdish state could be carved out of Turkey: the population in the southeast includes a large minority of Turks, and there are now millions of Kurds living in western Turkey (including an estimated three million in Istanbul). But Turkey is a democratic country, and full civil and language rights for Kurds would give them a very large say in how the Kurdish-majority parts of the country are run. That is what is now on the table, and Ocalan seems content with it. Why would Prime Minister Erdogan (who quite recently said that he would have liked to see Ocalan executed) be interested in making the deal with the man? Erdogan is currently trying to get a new constitution through parliament. He has two major aims: to prevent future military coups, and to remove the anti-religious elements in the document that have restricted any political expression of Islam since the founding of the republic ninety years ago. He also wants to strengthen the presidency, now a largely ceremonial office, since he plans to run for president next year. Ocalan has no objections to any of that. All he wants in a new constitution is full equality for the Kurds and their language. Since the new constitution requires a two-thirds majority in parliament, and Erdogan will not have that majority without the support of the main Kurdish party, the Peace and Democracy Party, both men can only get what they want if the deal goes through. Long-lasting marriages have been built on less promising foundations. This time, at long last, Turkey may finally get around to recognising the rights of the 20 per cent of its people who speak Kurdish. If it does, a long war will end, Erdogan will gain enormous political credit–and a postmodern version of the traditional Kurdish dream will start to come to life.


Mulcair loses his loyalty in Washington Dear Editor, It’s a sad state of affairs when a federal party leader so obsessed with personal power decides to become anti-Canadian and acts to discourage the economic push all Canadians need. NDP leader Thomas Mulcair demonstrated his true colours by going to Washington and joining his other Marxist comrades in the Obama administration to slam efforts to stop the Trans Canada’s Keystone XL pipeline. As just about everyone knows the pipeline represents significant economic opportunity for all Canadians. Alberta Premier Alison Redford, with whom I seldom agree, called Mulcair a traitor and in that sense she’s not too far off the mark. How can someone like the leader of the Official Opposition, someone vying to become prime minister,

put his own political ambitions ahead of the economic future of his own country? I’ve never really liked Mulcair. The always-scowling former Liberal politician is a far cry from the late Jack Layton, who at least was known to smile every now and then. Every time you see Mulcair, you want to offer him some advice: “Why don’t you simply lighten up a little?” Mulcair is one scary individual, one who would spell disaster for Canada if the voters decided to elect him and his party. So maybe it’s a good thing Mulcair went to Washington where he proved that his own personal ambitions mean more to him than being a loyal Canadian. Rolly Ethier, Campbellford

COMMENTARY By Bill Freeman

Boundary flap leaves bad taste EMC Editorial - The Federal Electoral Boundary Commission for Ontario proposal that re-designs Peterborough Riding and couples Northumberland with a new hyphenated partner called Pine Ridge has steamed up municipal politicians and residents, particularly in Asphodel-Norwood and Otonabee-South Monaghan which could be uprooted from their long-time Peterborough Riding home and placed in Northumberland-Pine Ridge. And to muddy the waters further, Peterborough MP Dean Del Mastro, in what he must have thought a well-meaning gesture to Asphodel-Norwood and OtonabeeSouth Monaghan has floated the idea of shifting Havelock-Belmont-Methuen out of Peterborough Riding and into Northumberland-Pine Ridge in return for the two affected townships. Havelock-Belmont-Methuen Mayor Ron Gerow is understandably outraged by this new twist, presented by the MP at a recent meeting, and joins the league of frustrated politicians (with the mayor of Asphodel-Norwood and reeve of Otonabee-South Monaghan) who were gobsmacked by the Commission’s “bombshell.” “If I had been Dean I would have stayed out of the process,” Gerow rightly noted. The Commission holds sway in the end but Del Mastro’s suggestion that HBM be exchanged for Asphodel-Norwood and Otonabee-South Monaghan personalizes the matter. The people of Havelock-Belmont-Methuen have every right to wonder why they’re being used as trade bait. Like everyone else, MP Del Mastro wants his riding to stay intact; last summer the Commission said there’d be no changes to the riding. The subtraction of two municipalities, with two more from the north added, came as a shock to all players. The narrow window for objections (30 days) via MPs is another irksome impediment. Mayor Pearcy first learned of the proposal at a Toronto conference. He was shocked and justifiably offended by the re-drawn electoral map. The affected municipalities have barely had time to channel their indignation. The Havelock-Belmont-Methuen to Northumberland-Pine Ridge Riding swap sounds like an NHL deal. “I felt very slighted at the meeting because I had no notion this was coming up for debate or discussion,” Mayor Gerow told his council. “I don’t see any advantage to our community being involved with Northumberland. Just leave us alone; leave us the way we are.” Asphodel-Norwood and Otonabee-South Monaghan could say the same thing. The Chief Electoral Officer of Canada has determined Ontario should have 15 additional federal seats to reflect population increases. It’s the Commission’s task to establish what it considers a fair and representative redistribution to accommodate the new population figures. “The Commission is satisfied it has balanced its statutory obligations with the views of the people of Ontario in striving for the goal of effective representation,” Commission chair Mr. Justice George Valin says in their report. Their first report in July, 2012, left Peterborough unchanged but eliminated the name Northumberland from Ontario’s riding list. The erasure of Northumberland infuriated county residents and they fired back during public hearings in Cobourg and Belleville. The fact that the Commission didn’t stop in Peterborough is another major irritant to constituents further north. “The Commission received substantial criticism that its approach severed communities of interest, divided and combined parts of counties, and ignored a historical attachment that runs along north-south lines despite the mixing of rural and urban areas,” the report admits. “When drawing the electoral boundaries the Commission was mindful of its statutory obligation to establish electoral districts with populations as close to the provincial quota as reasonably possible, tempered by the obligation … to take into account communities of interest, communities of identity, historical patterns and manageable geographic size.” Communities of interest, identity and historical patterns were undervalued when two municipalities were shuffled out of Peterborough Riding. The same could be said of Havelock-Belmont-Methuen if it’s forced to join Northumberland-Pine Ridge. It appears that socio-economic, cultural and historical traditions were ignored when it came to re-formatting Peterborough Riding. Quite the opposite happened in Northumberland where public lobbying appears to have been effective. Lack of public consultation in Peterborough and a complete change in direction by the Commission has made it impossible for affected municipalities to mount a vigorous defence and that sours the process.

Return to old-fashioned healthcare service wanted Dear Editor, I spent five days in Belleville General Hospital two weeks ago. In that time our two-bed room was not dusted or cleaned. When the patient in the other bed left, they did thoroughly clean the bed, I was glad to see. At a time when most of the patients should have been settling for the night, there was much loud laughing and talking, I presumed at the nurses’ station. No one was visible in the hall and when I had to ring the bell to tell them the patient in the other bed, who was on oxygen and a catheter, was trying to get out of bed there was no response. I had to go to the door where a Loyalist student nurse saw me and responded and got attention for the other patient. During the day the staffing was adequate and good. I understand as one of the cost-cutting measures

they are laying off maintenance staff; this when they cannot now keep halls free of debris and no real cleaning is being done. The condition of the medical floor is deplorable. It is literally crumbling. Does that mean it is next for expensive upgrades? This has gone too far. BGH has built and is still adding to its “Taj Mahal” at the expense of Trenton and Prince Edward County hospitals both of which had run in the black prior to amalgamation. Please note too, both hospitals were built by the local municipalities, not government. The theory offered to offset the loss of beds in Trenton and the county is that there will be homecare and doctors’ home visits; that’s pie in the sky. The availability of such services is not there and could only come if hospital funding is further cut. The general practitioners, many of whom are not likely to practise much longer because they

are aging, are overworked right now. When would they have time for home visits? Who will cover their added travel costs? The VON has the SMILE program: Seniors Managing Independent Living Easily which is very helpful but there is a long wait to be accepted and more limited help than the programme would choose to offer because of a lack of funds. There are still shortages of spaces in nursing homes for people who need 24/7 care. Before trying to put the cart before the horse in modifying local health care, all three hospitals need to find sensible ways to improve their daily operation. They could lower their expenses greatly from needing to fight in-house bugs by employing fulltime cleaning staff who have personnel available to ensure maximum cleanliness everywhere in the hospital at all times. This includes the prompt

cleanup and sanitizing of any area where a mishap may occur; such things are frequent in any nursing facility. Such staff should not be on a contract basis but full-time employees with benefits. Such action would promote a feeling of being important healthcare members with pride in doing their best. Reinstate in-hospital food preparation and hopefully a full cafeteria offering healthy locally grown food to patients, staff, day patients and visitors. Patients’ hospital meals are not good value or tasteful. Many patients have food brought in by family, thus the nursing staff have no idea what is being eaten. Do you realise that when Quinte Healthcare closes down a service at our local hospitals, the equipment the community has raised funds for likely is taken to BGH? That to me is thievery. J. Kennedy, R.R.2, Carrying Place

Wind power is all about subsidies not green energy Dear Editor, I would like to provide an explanation to those of you who question the anti-wind turbine opposition movement in Ontario. Having been involved in the fight to stop around 37 industrial wind turbines (each 156 meters/515 feet high) on Amherst Island, west of Kingston, for the last few years, I have gained considerable insight into the issues. First, the surge of industrial wind power development in Ontario isn’t really about fighting climate change. As usual, it is about money— subsidies. The multitude of wind companies developing industrial wind facilities around the Great Lakes are not operated by idealistic entrepreneurs but by giant corporations. The wind lobby is very powerful and there are huge profits to be made. Put these interests together with politicians who pursue agendas that are not well considered (and not fiscally enlightened) and we have a “wind rush.” Unfortunately for us, our politicians have put the cart before the horse in the case of renewable energy in Ontario and we will all pay for it as huge increases in our electricity bills. Consider this: Ontario has an aging grid and no storage system for surplus power. Since the development of renewables we often produce more power than we can use—and we pay millions of dollars to other jurisdictions to take it. In fact, the latest plan is to shut down wind turbines in times of this surplus, while wind companies will still be compensated for losses (as, I

believe, nuclear plants that partially shut down already are). More and more wind and solar are coming online as energy-hungry industry is leaving Ontario—because of high electricity costs. Pretty soon, perhaps, farmers will be paid not to install wind turbines—or solar panels. I rather think our energy policy needs an overhaul. Besides the costs, a multitude of issues surround the construction and operation of these industrial facilities which are to be located in rural areas—and particularly the rich (and internationally recognized) wildlife habitat that surrounds the Great Lakes. The Green Energy Act has enabled regulatory changes that have removed many basic rights and protections, not only for human health and quality of life but also for the environment and for avian populations in particular. This regulatory “free ride,” combined with a supportive bureaucracy (and a strangely quiet media) means Big Wind only has to pay lip service to the many serious concerns opponents have raised. It’s no surprise that a wind “farm” in Ontario has never been refused, because the appeal process is also a farce. The democratic process is in question here and our politicians are not  acting honourably. So, please do not deride those who question the development of these mega-structures. The implications for people and wildlife that are directly affected by them  are  far-reaching. But they will affect you too. Besides health and noise issues,

there are concerns over location of airports, steril- com> and  <http://ontario-wind-resistance. ization of agricultural land, vista destruction, fire org> for more insights. threat, removal of derelict turbines (once the sub  sidies run out), etc, etc. Celia R.

OPP officers 35th-highest paid in province Dear Editor, I read with interest the letter to the editor in your March 21, 2013, edition entitled “It is time for two-tier policing.” In that letter, author Chris Clysdale suggested that the OPP is “demanding” more money to provide the same or less service than the communities were provided with less than 20 years ago, and that OPP officers are being given massive pay raises at a time of budget deficits. Associations from across the province are working with police chiefs and key stakeholders to study how policing is delivered in the Province of Ontario. What is being realized at the Ministryconvened committee is that, while there are areas where some efficiencies will

be achieved, the delivery of policing services in Ontario are very efficient in terms of costs and when judged on a police officer to population comparison. Policing has become the social agency of last choice and the amount of time spent dealing with issues like mental illness in our communities are contributing to pressures on both our policing budgets and those who are providing these vital services.  Contrary to the author’s assertion that OPP officers were being given “massive pay and benefits increases,” our members did our part to control costs during the recent economic challenges, voluntarily taking 0 per cent increases for two full years. No other police service in Ontario did that.  In 2014, our officers will be paid a wage equivalent to (not more than) the top-paid force.  Currently, OPP officers are the 35th-highest paid in Ontario; this will just be a matter of catching up.   The author’s suggestion that a two-tier policing model would be more effective assumes that the primary driver of costs for policing is salaries, but the reality is that is not the case. Quite frankly, the nature of policing has changed. Unlike the days of 20 years ago, officers today have to must contend with an increased reliance on modern technology, complex investigations (such as international investigations and those involving white-collar crime), and requirements imposed by the courts. All of these things add to the budget pressures.  Police have been asked to do more, and the bottom line is that costs more. It is too simplistic to speak about two-tier policing. We need to talk about community safety as a whole and included in those discussions must be other involved ministries.  But as we continue to wrestle with the costs of policing, thanks to the hard work and professionalism of uniform and civilian law enforcement, our communities are safer than ever before. The fact that crime rates are down is evidence that getting more officers on the street (with access to more modern equipment and better resources) is working.  Crime prevention and abatement strategies are working.

Visiting Keukenhof, the Garden of Europe By John M. Smith

EMC Lifestyles - Keukenhof, known as the Garden of Europe, is one of the major springtime tourist attractions in all of the Netherlands. After all, it’s reputed to be “the most beautiful spring garden in the world,” and each year it provides visitors with spectacular displays of crocuses, tulips, hyacinths, and daffodils, among others.   More than seven million bulbs are planted here annually, and as the visitor strolls around the 15 kilometres of footpaths within the 32-hectare park, each new turn of the walking path seems to provide even more “eye candy.”   Keukenhof is located in the small town of Lisse, about 25 kilometres southwest of Amsterdam, and it was established in 1949 by the then-mayor of Lisse.  Since the Netherlands had become the world’s largest exporter of flowers, the idea was to present a flower exhibit where growers could show off their hybrids and help the Dutch export industry even further. When I was in Amsterdam last spring, I decided to spend a day in these nearby gardens, so I simply hopped on a train to the airport, using my eurail pass, <>, and then took bus #58, which led me directly to the Keukenhof, <> in about half an hour, and it certainly proved to be a wondrous and worthwhile destination.  However, the major problem here is that I just couldn’t stop taking photos!  I discovered that about a thousand varieties of tulips were on display among the more than four million tulips in this historic park, and along with the many other varieties of outdoor spring flowers, there were also beautiful shrubs, statues, waterfalls, lakes, fountains, artistic works, and pavilions.  The pavilions offered displays of such varieties as azaleas, orchids, and lilies; and I just happened to be in the Willem-Alexander Pavilion at the time of its presentation of the world’s largest lily show!  I also visited the Juliana Pavilion, where I found a fascinating history of the tulip; the Bulb Information Pavilion, the Beatrix Pavilion, with its several varieties of orchids; Historical Garden, a walled garden; Azalea Lane; Beech Tree Lane; Japanese Garden;

Natural Garden; Inspiration Gardens; Zocher Garden, with its stepping stones within a pond; Kuekenhof Castle with its art exhibition; Children’s Paradise with its playground, maze, and petting farm; and Mill Square, a great place from which to take a photo of the surrounding tulip fields. It was intriguing to simply walk among these spring blooms, but I also discovered that this destination offered a flower shop for ordering bulbs that can be shipped worldwide, live bands, and several restaurants and souvenir shops where one could purchase such items as wooden shoes, a Keukenhof calendar, a wooden tulip or stained glass tulip or even a tulip-shaped purse. There are crowds of people walking about here, so this is not a place for cycling.  However, just outside the gates to the park, I found a bicycle rental shop, and I could then enjoy a ride through the flowering fields located near Keukenhof.  There’s something very special about cycling through fields of blooming tulips on a warm spring day! Another interesting tour of the area is available via flat “whisper boats,” driven by electric engines.  They’ll take you around the neighbouring tulip fields by way of the shallow waterways, and again you’ll have that “up close and personal look” at the spectacular fields in bloom. The park entrance fee is 15 EUR (7.50 EUR for children 4-11) for the day (8 a.m. – 7:30 p.m.), and seasonal passes are also available.  Keukenhof will be open this year from March 21 to May 20, and the best time to visit is usually in April.  If you’re planning a trip to Holland soon, I’d suggest a visit to this bulb area on April 20, for then you can see the free annual Flower Parade as it winds its way along a 40-kilometre route between Noordwijk and Haarlem.  This popular parade

The busy entrance to Keukenhof. consists of about 20 large floats, 30 decorated luxury cars, and several marching bands and musicians. For the past several years, Keukenhof has featured a theme country each

year. Last spring, when I was there, it was Poland (I found a very informative display on “Surprising Poland” in the Juliana Pavilion.), and this year it will be the United Kingdom.  Therefore, if you do happen to get there in 2013, you’ll see a special flower bulb mosaic of Big Ben and the Tower Bridge displayed, measuring 13 by 22 metres, and featuring about 60,000 bulbs.  You’ll also see a new variety of tulip in the park, for the Holland-America cruiseship line, which was founded in nearby Rotterdam in 1873, has partnered with Keukenhof to develop this new variety in celebration of its 140th anniversary. This floral park offers a number of special events and guided tours each spring.  It’s also open for an October weekend - for the National Flower Bulb Market.

EMC Lifestyles - Colborne - A new initiative in Cramahe Township is making art available to everyone with the beginning last week of Mayor Marc Coombs’ “art in the office” campaign. In conjunction with the Colborne Art Gallery, a work from their current show will be installed in the town hall main office. First up is a work by photographer Bill Hornbostel. His solo exhibit, “The Lake in Winter and Other Vistas,” runs until April 14. Coombs contacted gallery officials about the possibility and, he says, “they were immediately on board.” “I’m a strong believer in getting art out into public spaces where people can interact and enjoy it,” he said. “This helps promote the local art gallery by exposing their work to people who might not think to visit or even be aware that it’s there.” “I always wanted to do it,” said Coombs, who recalled attending a cultural planning seminar a few years back where discussion included the importance of art in public places along with the positive long-term impact it has on residents and visitors alike. “It’s about making a difference how people feel about themselves and the community,” he said. “It’s a low-cost way of making the community look more attractive and looking a bit more culturally with it.” Coombs sees expanding the program in the future to include other public spaces such as the Keeler Centre and the library. An Ontario Arts Council survey, released in 2010, underscores the mayor’s plan. Across the province, “all regional and demographic groups believe the arts are important to individual and community quality of life, that the arts enrich our lives, and support government spending of public dollars to support the arts,” says the report. Eight in ten Ontarians think the arts are important to their own quality of life; nine in ten agree if their com-

Coombs will also be on hand to award “best in show” honours at the gallery’s first annual juried art show, to be held this summer from July 13 through August 18. Log on to <www. thecolbornegallery> for information on how to enter. The deadline is June 14.

Quinte West EMC - Thursday, March 28, 2013 11 13-03-22 2:17 PM

New economic development manager looking to revitalize Brighton EMC News - Brighton - It’s been a busy first week on the job for newly minted Economic Development Manager Elisha Purchase, who joined municipal staff last week after spending more than five years working at Stirling-Rawdon. “Brighton seemed like an ideal place for me,” she said. “It’s about double the size of the place where I came from, and I think there are lots of great opportunities in the area of economic development here.” According to the Community Development Plan, released in February 2012, her job is defined as “the lead responsibility for project management—specifically responsible and accountable for ensuring implementation of the plan.” “It’ll certainly be a guide for economic development going forward,” said Purchase. “It really is a road map, showing how economic development, community development and tourism come together, and they really do, in a lot of ways.” The initial work will include prioritizing those elements with the help of a new support committee focused on making the plan a reality. Key priorities include arts, culture and heritage; entrepreneurship and small business; branding and marketing; and connecting with CFB Trenton, all with an eye to revitalizing Brighton.

Cavity Free or Life? F

“Priorities need to be in place for the first year of execution,” said Purchase. “But once you start rolling with some of those things, it will help guide what future years look like.” Consultants Eric McSweeney and Associates, authors of the plan, say those committee members should be considered “doers” and include champions as well as economic development stakeholders who can move the plan forward while simultaneously gaining community and municipal support. Purchase says part of the job will be developing business tools such as an investment package and a marketing strategy. “All of those things that aren’t currently in place are things we want to prioritize,” she explained. “It’s important when it comes to business retention, working with businesses that are already here, as well as attracting new business, then, when we start doing some of these projects, we’ll have those documents of support throughout the implementation process.” But getting there may be a challenge. In the plan, SWOT—strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats—illustrate the perceptions from those living and working in Brighton. Notably, “lack of political will, resistance to change and volunteer burnout,” among others, are listed as threats. Purchase was introduced to the membership of the Brighton and District Chamber of Commerce at their annual general meeting, held last week at Dougall’s Restaurant on Harbour Street. “I appreciate the opportunity to meet so many of the local business people and community stakeholders tonight,” she told the crowd. “I will be visiting many of

LHIN funding passed on to hospitals

EMC News - Quinte West - A presentation by Paul Huras, CEO of the South East Local Health Integrated Network (LHIN), spelled out the details of the organization which funds local hospitals. “District Health Councils were eliminated five months prior to the establishment of the LHINs,” he said. Each LHIN has 30 people who are responsible for managing an average of one billion dollars. “Ontario’s health care is more accountable than it ever has been,” Huras said. With Health Care Connect there is a high patient connection to a family doctor at 88 per cent. Alternate Level of Care patient days are down from 19 to 10 per cent. There are improved wait times for hip and knees. “We have the second best overall wait time performance in the province,” Huras said. Programs such as the SMILE (Seniors Managing Independent Living Easily) are helping keep seniors at home instead of in hospitals or other facilities. There are 14 LHINs in the province, averaging 900,000 people. The South East LHIN has 500,000, the most rural of the southern LHINs. A total of 124 Health Service Providers (including seven hospitals) are accountable to the SE LHIN representing $1.08 billion in annual funding. The LHIN is governed by a nine-member board. Its mandate is local health system planning, integra-

tion of programs, funding, accountability agreements, performance targets and community engagement. Huras explained that Canada’s productivity has not improved during the last ten years and financial recovery will be slow. “Canada and Ontario must aggressively attack deficits or they will have credit ratings reduced,” he said. “This will be unattractive to new businesses.” The Ontario health sector comprises 38 per cent or $47.6 billion of the budget, caring for 13 million people. “Canada spends more on health care than almost all other countries without achieving top incomes,” he said. Huras said the existing system is fragmented and is designed to serve the patient with acute care. Today’s patient is typically frail, elderly and presents multiple chronic conditions. Patients spend too much time in acute care beds. These patients require transitions throughout the health care system. “The system is failing these patients,” Huras said. He said the goal is to improve access to high quality care for all patients, with the right care by the right provider. Clinical and non-clinical services should be provided in the home. “To achieve improved access to high quality care, we need transformational change,” he said, “disruptive solutions.” Huras said they need a health care system that lives within its financial means.

EMC News - Quinte West - Lorraine O’Quinn knows how to throw a party. She invited people to sign up for a fivekilometre Dance Walk on Sunday, March 24, at the Trenton amphitheatre to raise funds for Three Oaks Shelter second stage housing. It was called “Shedding for Shelter.” “We lose weight and donate to the shelter,” said O’Quinn, dressed in pink tights, orange shorts, multi-coloured jacket, striped socks and headband. “I like to think outside the box.” O’Quinn has lost 38 pounds since her last event on October 15, and a total of 70 pounds since she signed up for the Biggest Loser competition raising funds for the hospital. About 60 people registered for the Dance Walk which took them along Bay Street to Price Chopper and back on Dundas Street to Canadian Tire. Some walkers came with their dogs who enjoyed the dance.

EMC News - The search is on for a secondary student to serve as the Kawartha Pine Ridge District School Board’s (KPR’s) student trustee for 2013-2014.

She encourages her peers to consider this opportunity seriously. “The role of student trustee opens many doors, and can open students’ eyes to greater solutions for change within our school board,” she notes. Student trustees attend, and provide a monthly report at, all board meetings. They also meet regularly throughout the school year with the secondary Student Leadership Group, as well as with student leaders from Grades 7 and 8, to share information and gain students’ perspectives and advice. In addition, they have involvement in the provincial scene as members of the Ontario Student Trustees’ Association.

EMC News - Belleville - What do Sir Isaac Newton, Albert Einstein and Carly Fleischmann have in common? Autism. They also share another important characteristic: Autism didn’t stop them from becoming exceptional human beings. The genius of Einstein and Newton revolutionized the way in which we relate to our world, even today. Fleischmann’s story is also powerful. Diagnosed with severe non-verbal autism at the age of two, doctors predicted she would never communicate. Then, when she was ten, Carly typed the words, “help teeth hurt.” Turned out she had something to say, after all. Today, Carly is 17 and enrolled in gifted classes in a mainstream high school. She’s still typing—on social media to a far-reaching audience of tens of thousands of followers. She has co-authored a book, with her father, called Carly’s Voice: Breaking Through Autism, which chronicles her amazing journey. On April 30, 2013, at 7 p.m., Albert College is hosting the annual Shewfelt Lecture in our historic chapel at 160 Dundas Street West, Belleville. Guest speaker Arthur Fleischmann will share his daughter’s story, answer questions and sign copies of their book at a reception following the public lecture. It promises to be an evening you’ll never forget. Tatyana Haddock, Kindergarten teacher in the Early Primary Learning Centre at Albert College, is particularly interested in what Fleischmann has to say. Haddock has a 12-year-old son, Rowan, as well as identical twin boys, Miguel and Max, who are seven years old. Miguel has severe autism and doesn’t speak, just like

Downhill Dummies race down Batawa Ski Hill

By Kate Everson

EMC - Batawa - The dummies were racing downhill at Ski Hill on March 23, and some of them didn’t make it. “The dummy who goes the furthest wins,” explained administrative manager Morgan Casement to the five racing teams. “But you also get points for the most creative and the best crash.” There were some spectacular crashes as the dummies hit the hump and split apart. Some flipped over, others disinte-

grated in flying bits of fluff and stuff. The only one that withstood all the heats intact was a reclining “Handy Andy” put together by the Ski Patrol. He just laid back on his sled and kept reading his magazine. “We’ve been waiting for this race,” said Joel Fox of Wooler who worked hard to create “Cold Fries New York” with

his buddies Caleb DeVries and Troy Wolters. Their cowboy on a horse with a whip in his hand has been sitting in his mother’s living room since last year. “There was no snow this time last year,” he said. Cold Fries was toast on the hill. Regrettably, so were many of the others, sliding down on sleds or skis until they hit the first big bump. Jane Hollett’s Rentals Place, the Zombie from Quinte West Youth Centre and Bistro Bob by Sharleen French gave it their best shot, but couldn’t compete with Handy Andy. “There are a few rules,” Morgan Casement said before the race. “The dummy has to be under 150 pounds, it must be safely fastened to the apparatus, there can be no glass or explosives on

board and it must be 100 per cent nonliving.” Some of the dummies looked more alive than dead, and it took some strong pullers to drag them up the steep hill to the start of the race, patch them up when they broke up, then back again for the next heat. Sunday, March 31, will be even more spectacular. Contestants are already signing up for the Puddle Jump. Skiers or snowboarders race down the hill and try to jump over a big pond at the base of the hill without falling in. Costumes like Captain Canada in a red cape are sure to gain attention. “Some make it, most don’t,” said a smiling general manager Darren Lobb. Welcome to spring skiing!

EMC News - Belleville - After a highly successful first application cycle, the Rotary Club of Quinte Sunrise are once again inviting submissions for grants for Quinte area community and international service projects for 2013. “We really want projects that involve community members and make significant changes in the ives of those community members,” said club director Maribeth deSnoo. “That there’s buy-in, that’s the biggest thing for us.” This year, the club is hoping to have between $15,000 and $20,000 of funding available, while keeping in mind that fundraising is still ongoing. Applications are avaiable on their website at, and the deadline is on September 6, 2013. Projects chosen for funding will align with key service priorities of the club, including; responding to real issues, improving community members’ lives, incorporating the abilities of those who are served recognizing the contributions of all participants as important and necessary, are based on a realistic assessment of available resources, aiming for specific goals and objectives with measurable results, building effective networks, and empowering people and communities. “We’re a small Rotary club, we work really hard to raise the funds that we have to make available,” deSnoo said. “We understand, and we’re looking for applications where there may be other funders, so that we’re working to maximize the dollars that we have available and they have available.” Last year, recipients of grant funding included a host of local projects, such as a new sailboat for Quinte SailAbility, new musical instruments for Bayside Public School and iPads for the local Reading Rocks program, alongside several international groups. “The feedback from last year was “what a difference it makes,” and how much the funding is appeciated,” deSnoo said. The funds will be distributed likely in November of 2013. “We just want to make sure that people are aware,” deSnoo aid. “We really want to fund applications and projects that have maximum impact and do great things.”

Parti-poodles know how to party at the dog show By Kate Everson

EMC News - Belleville - For the first time in Canadian history the poodle club of Canada held an event allowing partially coloured poodles (known as parti-poodles) to be shown in the ring. Currently, the Canadian Kennel Club allows only solid coloured poodles to compete. The parti-poodle show was for exhibition only. “It’s a huge milestone for parti-poodles,” says Debbie Hoskin of Belleville who showed four parti-poodles at the show in Barrie on March 17 and took home three awards. “My boy, Forest Gump, won Best Parti-Poodle in his breed,” she said proudly. Debbie has a special attachment to this poodle. He was born cold, and not breathing. She spent hours reviving him. “He was so beautiful,” she said. “I kept rubbing him and blowing on him and every once in a while he would take a breath. After two hours he revived.” She never left his side for days, even helping him nurse when the others pushed him aside. “I called him Forest Gump because his personality reminded me of that character in the movie,” she said with a smile. “He has a real wisdom about him.” She notes he even has a heart-shaped nose. Debbie also won a ribbon for her toy parti-poodle puppy “Link” and her United Kennel Champion “Mia.” There were about 20 parti-poodles entered in the Sunday event. “I love my poodles with all my heart,” she says. “They’re my pack of wolves.” Parti-poodles are the original poodle, dating to the 1400s. They were the original truffle-hunting poodle (huxtable-

By Steve Jessel In the early 1900s the solid poodle became the preferred colour. At that time many breeders attempted to eliminate the parti-poodle from poodle history by culling (killing) them and/or not registering them.

Belleville, Bulls reach new three-year lease agreement

EMC News - Belleville - The City of Belleville and the Belleville Bulls of the OHL have reached a new three-year lease extension for the club to continuing play at the Yardmen Arena through May 2015, but majority owner Gord Simmons said that as the OHL continues to grow and evolve, the Bulls must evolve along with it. “The big question is how will Belleville keep its place on the list of cities with an OHL team at the heart of its hockey and community life,” he said. “I believe the answer to that question lies in understanding the big difference between commitment and involvement.” Taking note of Brampton losing their OHL team to North Bay earlier this year,

Simmons said that the excitement over the announcement of the lease agreement is tempered by the fact that the agreement isn’t as long as the Bulls franchise was looking for. “Straight talk is needed, as we look to the future,” Simmons said. “Coming to this new extension agreement was not easy. From the Bulls side, we were determined not to sign any longer term extension without a commitment that the city is prepared to invest in a new or redeveloped sports and entertainment facility, one that will also suit a future OHL franchise.” Simmons said that the negotiation process with the City of Belleville was further complicated by the fact that a number of areas in Ontario have recently expressed interest in attracting an OHL franchise. Simmons said the owners are constantly receiving offers for the franchise, but that it is the desire of the ownership for the team to remain in Belleville as long as it remains viable. “This is where the Bulls belong,” Simmons said. However, Simmons was also quick to point out the limita-

tions of continuing to operate in a city the size of Belleville. “The market size of Belleville will always challenge us in ways that are unique; we have to do more with less,” Simmons said. “The critics of this town may never understand the real challenges of operating in a league where other teams have unlimited resources.” The Belleville Bulls joined the OHL in 1981 and are completing their 32nd season at the Yardmen Arena. “The Belleville Bulls are an integral part of the culture and history of our community and we are happy to sign this agreement that will ensure that they continue to play at the Yardmen Arena for the immediate future,” said Belleville Mayor Neil Ellis. “The Bulls bring national and regional exposure to our community year round and are one of the most identifiable assets in our municipality. We look forward to working with the Bulls during this lease to create a viable long-term plan that will keep the team right here in Belleville.” As part of the announcement, Simmons also introduced a new season ticket membership program. Details can be found at <>. “If we are to continue to invest in

building our business here in the future, we need to know that the city of Belleville is creative, courageous, forward thinking and business like,” Simmons said. To succeed, our franchise needs to be in a community where the leaders see a much bigger picture. They need to see beyond the obvious tangible benefits an OHL team brings, which are obvious. They need to understand the overwhelming intangible benefits an OHL adds: a vitality, a culture, a community spirit, a gathering place.”

Majority owner Gord Simmons announced a new lease agreement with the City of Belleville at a press conference on Tuesday March 19.

Mark your calendars for business award nominations

By Ray Yurkowski

EMC News - Brighton - Appreciation, awards and membership were on the agenda last week at the Brighton and District Chamber of Commerce annual general meeting. Three executive members, Eric Davidson, Denise Franklin and Don Parks, were recognized for their dedication to the local business organization. The trio was honoured with citations from MP Rick Norlock, MPP Rob Milligan and the municipality for, in addition to their regular duties, their efforts in keeping the operation up and running, with no staff help, for four months. By all accounts, the meeting was a success with more than 50 people in attendance. Quinte West Chamber of Commerce manager Suzanne Andrews delivered the keynote address: an overview of the From the left, Don Parks, Denise Franklin and Eric Davidson were hon- Quinte Business Achievement Awards.

and of 12 awards handed out last year, two Brighton businesses brought home the hardware. G. Boyd Boutique (retail) and Ontario Soil Recycling (environmental leadership) won at a gala event in Wellington. This year, the awards will be presented on October 25 at the Quinte Wellness Centre in Belleville.

“Considering the thousands of businesses we have in the Quinte region, just to be recognized by your peers and other business people is pretty good.” The business community should mark June 1 in their daytimers; that’s when nominations open online at <www.qbaa. ca> for this year’s awards. They’re accepted for that month, with applications due by the end of August and judging, to decide the winners, in September. Last year, 180 nominations were received. “We’ve really worked hard as a committee over the last couple of years to make sure it’s really seen as a huge compliment to have been nominated,” said Andrews. “It’s seen as prestigious. “Considering the thousands of businesses we have in the Quinte region, just to be recognized by your peers and other business people is pretty good.” Andrews added one of the biggest challenges in organizing the awards gala is the availability of venues large enough to accommodate the event. “As wonderful as the Quinte region is, we don’t have an abundance of facilities that can seat 350 people,” she said. And with Brighton due to play host in 2014, local Chamber officials will be looking at just what is available locally. “We would really like to bring it into our neighbourhood,” said new Chamber administrator Sherry Hamilton. “We’ll have to think creatively but we’ll find something and, hopefully, it’s going to be in our area.” The meeting also featured a challenge to the membership. “Each one, reach one,” Hamilton told the crowd. “Each one of you reach out to one other business, bring them in as a Chamber member, and we’ll reward you and them for doing that.” While current members will be entered into a draw for each new member they refer, new members will have an opportunity to be registered in two draws: one for recent sign ups and another if they, in turn, refer additional recruits. “We encourage double dipping,” said Hamilton, with a laugh.


The good, noble, and heroic

Sheila Wray Gregoire

The Good Earth:

Dan Clost EMC Lifestyles - Gentle Reader, by the time you are reading this (Maundy Thursday) you have two shopping days to purchase your Easter hydrangea. All the garden centres, corner stores and even gas stations are flogging these things now. Hydee and her sisters are everywhere, which is good because it means you have choice with selection, price and quality. (Hydee sounds like Heidi, it gives your plant a name but, more important, it lets me use fewer key strokes and so I don’t have to worry about spelling hydrangea correctly.) With proper care, you can sustain this shrub until spring and then plant in your flower garden. Or, you can consider Hydee a short-term table top decoration meant to be consigned to the compost pile. And that’s not necessarily a bad thing, GR. These forced hot house plants are “crops” with a specific purpose. If you hold the latter view, pick a pretty lassie. If you’ve graduated from the gardening school that once a plant has forced its way into the light of day it is meant to be nurtured as long as possible. Now, even though you still want a pretty one, there

Would I have rescued Jewish babies out of Germany? Regular people acted heroically then, at great cost. Dietrich Bonhoeffer is one of my heroes. Arrested for opposition to the Nazis, he was executed in a concentration camp two weeks before Germany capitulated. Yet his life, though cut short, still speaks. He was determined that his life would matter—that he would not watch injustice and do nothing, but that he would take whatever action was necessary to make a difference. He said that our role is not simply to “bandage the victims under the wheel, but jam the spoke in the wheel itself.” Emma Sky is a British anti-war activist who determined to live out this principle. She travelled to Iraq to protest Western involvement. Yet when she arrived, she spent time with U.S. troops and was tremendously impressed with their dedication and their commitment to bettering the lives of the people there. She ended up staying in Iraq, serving as civilian governor in Kirkuk and acting as advisor to key U.S. generals. She met real heroes, and it changed everything to her.

Hydee the hydrangea

are a few other considerations. Look at all the plants on the bench. There should be a consistency in that all the stems are standing straight and not drooping and the soil should be evenly moist. It is not unusual to see one or two “fallsy-downsies” but too many should give cause to worry about the care they have received at the store. Too much variation and you might consider heading off to a competitor. Or you can dicker for a discount.   Care for short-term plants: give it a moderate drink of water; put it wherever you think it looks best. On Tuesday, toss it in the compost; recycle the pot and plastic wrap. Care for long-term plants: select the healthiest, strongest looking Hydee that satisfies your sense of beauty. When you get it home, remove the “hat” or decorative wrapping. Find an old saucer or other holder and set the naked pot on that. This way you can give your plant a proper watering and the excess will have a chance to drain away.  When the formal part of the event occurs, e.g. Easter Sunday Dinner with the in-laws, put the hat back on. On Monday, doff the chapeau and bring out the old saucer again. Hydee likes bright light but not a lot of heat. Keep the soil moist using the first knuckle test to tell you when to water again. (Knuckle test: stick your finger into the soil to the depth of the first knuckle- doesn’t matter which digit. If the soil is dry to that depth, it’s time to water.) Eventually the blooms will fade and you can cut them off just above the new emerging leaves. Don’t be surprised if some leaves begin to fall off as well. Remember these plants are “out of season” and are looking for a little bit of down time—a delayed fall, so to speak. When the outdoor soil is easily worked, you can plant in the garden.

If there is a delay—like a stooopid winter not knowing when to go away—you can set Hydee in the garden shed, garage, enclosed porch until the time does arrive. You still must keep it moist. It is highly unlikely that you will get a bloom this upcoming summer. A Sox note: (Experienced readers know that Sox is our irrepressible and impossibly cute black lab cross.) Youngest daughter gave him a spring bath. The warm water of the shower apparently triggered the shedding gene and he has blown his winter coat—all at once. But his fur was wet. Means the stuff stuck to walls, cupboard doors, trouser legs, low flying airplanes, etc. If anybody is looking for puppies, we have enough hair to knit a few for you. When you buy Easter plants you are participating in the celebration of Easter. Gentle Reader, in that sense, our family wishes you and yours all the joy and blessings of the season. Hallelujah!

Today the military is one of the few avenues that offer up that example of real heroism, because in our everyday lives we don’t tend to live with threats of violence. Perhaps that’s why stories of mass shootings rivet us: we’re mesmerized by the horrific tragedy, but we’re also entranced because inevitably some become inadvertent heroes. Someone who woke up that morning, who had their cereal like everyone else does, who ran out the door breathless, a little bit late, in a split second made a decision that cost them their lives, but saved others. An ordinary person does something extraordinary. Isn’t that always good news, even if it’s intertwined with tragedy? Isn’t that what the human condition yearns for: a chance to transcend the everyday ordinariness of our quest for a better life, and instead see someone doing something selfless—something that enlarges the soul and makes our world that little bit less shallow, and much more meaningful. Self-fulfillment is our god today. We need to find ourselves, chase after happiness, and be true to our feelings. We are to toss aside that which makes us unhappy or guilt-ridden, and instead seek to maximize our own enjoyment. That, apparently, is the key to a good life. Yet that does not sound terribly good to me. Sure, you can dress it up in pretty language and make it sound noble to be “true to oneself.” But that which is truly noble must also be truly selfless. And deep inside, we all know that. I want to live in a world where the noble and the heroic are still celebrated, and this week, for a time, they will be. For greater love has no one than this: that he would lay down his life for his friends.


this particular holiday Good? In the Christian tradition, it’s the day Christ offered up His life as a ransom for many, paying the penalty for sin. Yet while this should be considered good, I sometimes worry that our culture fails to recognize the truly good, the truly noble, the truly heroic in its midst. When I was a little girl in school World War II was only 30 or 40 years in the past. That made it a looming force in our culture, and so much of my novel reading and thinking between those important ages of eight and 15 centred around World War II. We studied it in EMC Lifestyles - What’s so good school. We met Holocaust survivors in about Friday? I don’t mean good in the assemblies. And I always wondered: TGIF sense, but rather, why do we call would I have hidden Anne Frank?

The maple syrup is flowing but the sap is not EMC News - Rednersville Road - Maple in the County was flowing with maple syrup at pancake breakfasts but the temperature was enough to chill the sap. “Last year it was too warm and this year it was too cold,” said one syrup producer at the Hubbs Sugar Shack on Rednersville Road. That didn’t stop the people from lining up along the roadway to the pancake breakfast put on by the Masonic Lake Lodge #215. Pancake batter was bubbling, sausages were sizzling and the syrup was flowing. Maple in the County is a festival of maple syrup that stretches from Picton through Wellington, Bloomfield, Hillier, Rednersville and all the wineries and shops in-between. There were wagon rides from Sweetwater Cabin to the pancake breakfast at Hubbs, piled with children and families bundled up against the frosty morning. Although there was

Bulls give one up in Mississauga By Steve Jessel

EMC Sports - Despite getting absolutely dominated through the first two games of the play-offs, the Mississauga Steelheads guaranteed themselves at least one more visit to Belleville by stealing a 2 - 1 victory over the Bulls on Sunday, March 24. After outscoring the Steelheads 12 - 2 through the first two games, Belleville’s offence couldn’t catch a break in Mississauga, and dreams of a Bulls first-round sweep were quashed in the first real upset of the OHL play-offs. Things couldn’t have gone much better for the Bulls when they opened their first-round play-off series against Misissauga on Thursday, March 21, with captain Brendan Gaunce leading the Bulls to an 8 - 1 thrashing of the Steelheads. Forward Alan Quine, defenceman Scott Simmonds and centre Tyler Graovac all chipped in with three points apiece, and Malcolm Subban was solid in net, making 25 saves to backstop the Bulls. Belleville was quick out of the gate in this one, scoring twice in the opening five minutes, and Mississauga took exception. The game had three fights even before the midway point of the opening period, and the rough stuff continued as the night went on, including a thirdperiod brawl that had a player from each side ejected. With a 1 - 0 series lead, the Bulls again hosted Mississauga at the Yardmen Arena on Saturday, March 23, and while the score was different the result was much the same. The Bulls never trailed in a 4 - 1 win where balanced scoring and strong Belleville goaltend-

ing were the difference. Belleville jumped out to a quick lead that night, on the back of an early mistake by Mississauga. An early tripping call in front of the net gave Belleville the first powerplay of the game, and Tyler Graovac was quick to take advantage, jumping on a loose puck in front of the net to bury his first of the play-offs. That gave the Bulls a 1 - 0 lead at just 2:24 of the first period, but Misissauga would get that one back. A great individual effort by Steelheads forward Spenser Cobbold tied the game ten minutes later and put a bit of a damper on the Bulls’ momentum, but it was only temporary. Joseph Crammarossa made a beautiful play to get by two Mississauga defenders, and once in close made a nifty move to slide the puck home between the legs of Belleville native Tyson Teichmann, who made the start in net for the Steelheads. A 2 - 1 lead was enough for Subban, but a second-period goal by Carter Sandlak and a third-period marker by Jake Cardwell certainly didn’t hurt. More than a couple of brooms could be seen at the Yardmen Arena as the third period started to wrap up, but Mississauga showed they have some fight left when they headed to the Hershey Centre for game three the very next night, Sunday, March 24. Steelheads player Josh Burnside scored a powerplay goal with just 51 seconds left in the third period, and the Steelheads overcame another great performance by Malcolm Subban, who made 23 saves to claim a 2 - 1 win over Belleville. Tyler Graovac continued his strong start to the play-offs by scoring the Bulls’ lone goal, but Belleville went

Novice AE go head-to-head with Whitby for the title EMC Sports - Belleville - After a disappointing 6 - 2 loss on Monday in Whitby, the Belleville Hyundai Novice AE Junior Belleville Bulls lost again on Friday night in Belleville in a close 2 - 1 game. Cassidy Dobson was superb in net. Potting the sole goal for Belleville was Liam Reid, assisted by Jonathon Doyle and Myha Thomas. Then the Junior Bulls decided they were going to keep playing with a win in Whitby on Saturday, earning the Junior Bulls their first two points of the finals with a 3 - 1

win. Earning the goals were Joey Coates, Jonathon Doyle and Liam Reid. Earning the assists were Jacob Gilham, Aaron McCambridge and Aaron Brown. Net minder Cassidy Dobson played to win and kept the Wildcats at bay. On Sunday the Junior Bulls decided they still weren’t done with the season and earned themselves an additional two points in a 2 - 1 win in Belleville. In the most exciting game of the finals so far the game went into overtime. The Junior Bulls

received the winning goal during a penalty shot made by Carter Seymour. The other goal was earned by Aaron McCambridge with the assists going to Jonathon Doyle and Jacob Gilham.

EMC Sports - Trenton - It was a golden weekend for the Quinte West Hawks with three teams winning OMHA championships. The Midget Hawks got the parade of champions rolling with a 6 - 1 victory on Friday night over the Welland Tigers. Cole Hamilton (two), Gerald Bilker, Jordan Boutilier, Matt Laidley and Jonathan Rood scored the goals with assists from Alex Leclerc (two), Bilker, Mason Conley, T.J. Patterson, Andy Paul and Derek Shields. Goaltender Kevin Valdes earned the win in net. Notably, Valdes sat out last season after not making the Hawks roster. He was asked to try out this time around and, last weekend, celebrated his third lifetime OMHA title. “We’ve been working so hard for this,” said team captain Andy Paul, after the game. “I couldn’t ask for a better group of guys to do this with.” Paul is one of the nine returning players from last season’s Midget squad who fell short in the final series against the Owen Sound Attack. This year, they weren’t about to let it happen again and the series victory marked the first time a Trenton Midget team has ever won an OMHA title. “We did what we had to do,” said coach Ken Chesher. “We weren’t going to be denied this year.” “To win a championship, you need three things,” he explained. “Strong goaltending, and we got just that each and every night from Kevin Valdes, who is likely the best goaltender in the province at the Midget A level; excellent defence, we only gave up more than two goals in a game once throughout the entire play-offs; and outstanding leadership. Our veterans lead by example every game.” On Saturday, it was the Novice Hawks’ turn as they notched their fourth victory in a row against the Napanee Stars to defend their OMHA East championship with a 3 - 1 win on the

The Quinte West Hawks, OMHA Juvenile “A” champions, are: Jordan Andrews, Brock Baragar, Brandon Chabassol, Jake Dafoe, Josh Finlan, Connor Gunter, Shaun Hadley, Josh Leavey, Eric MacDonald, Zach Makarchuk, Devin McCann, Matt Parker, Colin Patrick, Kierran Singh, Kai Sorvari, Bryce Sutton, Mitch Sweet, Adam Wall, Taylor Walsh, Cody Warren along with coaches Cory Ignas, Paul O’Connor; and team manager Dan Patrick.


road. Kendrick Webster (two) and Cole Stevenson scored the goals with assists from Abigail Hicks, Ethan Quick and Webster. Goaltender Dylan Prinzen picked up the win in net. “The difference in the series was the breakout plan and puck movement by the Hawks,” says team manager Shawn Hicks. “The Hawks consistently pass the puck and at Novice age that is hard to defend.” The Novice Hawks are: Raiden Andrechuk, Nathan Bassett, Dawson Douglas, Lucas Harbour, Abigail Hicks, Jack Kelly, Cole Kirby, Jacob Parsons, Dylan Prinzen, Ethan Quick, Cole Stevenson, Parker Stewart, Lucas Thynne and Kendrick Webster along with coaches Percy Haines, Scott Kelly, Shawn Hicks, Jeremy Prinzen, Kevin Stewart along with coaches Percy Haines, Jeremy Prinzen, Kevin Stewart; trainer Scott Kelly; and team manager Shawn Hicks. Later that day, the Bantam and Juvenile squads both notched a second win in their best-of-five series. The Bantams won 3 - 1, at home, against the Brampton 45s. Ethan Coens, Nick Jones, Dawson Whyte scored for the Hawks with assists from Coens, Justin Lewis, Whyte. Goaltender Tyler Freeman earned the win in net. Meanwhile, the Juveniles won 7 - 3, on the road, against the East Gwillimbury Eagles. Josh Finlan (two), Taylor Walsh (two), Brock Baragar, Connor Gunter, Matt Parker scored the goals with assists from Finlan (two), Josh Leavey (two), Parker and Cody Warren. On Sunday, the Juvenile Hawks successfully defended their OMHA championship with a 3 - 2 win. Connor Gunter, Warren and Eric MacDonald tallied for the Hawks with assists from Leavey, Finlan, Jake Dafoe, Kai Sorvari and Warren. Goaltender Mitch Sweet picked up both wins in net. Unfortunately, the Bantams Hawks couldn’t complete the four-championships-in-one-weekend bid as they took a 2 - 1 loss later that evening. Matt Tedford scored the lone goal with assists from Whyte and Jones. Game five, a winnertake-all showdown against the Brampton 45s, is scheduled at 7 p.m. on March 30 at the Duncan McDonald Memorial Arena.

Judo at the Budokan

EMC Sports - It was a second- and third-place finish for two members of the Quinte Judo Club this weekend at a meet held at the Budokan Judo club in Ajax this weekend. Paul Bunge used a leg throw to take an opponent down twice and end his match early for the first match. In his second match, however, he lost out to the girl who won the “Best technique of the Tournament” award, and had to settle for a second-place finish.  In Judo (as many other sports), it is fairly common for boys and girls under the age of 13 years to compete against each other in these smaller events. Michelle Currie won her first match against a strong opponent using a shoulder throw, and then ended the match early with a hip throw. Michelle then lost her next two matches against the boys, including one by a controversial decision to settle for third. The next event for the Quinte Judo Club will be in Woodbridge, at the Peel Judo Championships.  For more info about Judo, call 613-922-5192 or visit the web site <>.
