Cadets commemorate Battle of Vimy Ridge

By Ray Yurkowski

EMC News - Brighton The 1st Canadian Parachute Battalion Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corps 100 celebrated the National Day of Remembrance of the Battle of Vimy Ridge last week with a parade at the cenotaph in Memorial Park. It was at Vimy Ridge, on April 9, 1917, that Canadians fought together in a battle for the first time and is considered by many to be a turning point in Canadian history as well as the beginning of the march toward nationhood. In 2003, the federal government declared the day as “Vimy Ridge Day,” to honour and remember the World War I battle where Canadians suffered approximately 11,000 casualties, nearly 3,600 of them fatal. In Ottawa, the Canadian flag on the Peace Tower is lowered at half-mast to commemorate the day. The occasion also marked donations from two local Royal Canadian Legion branches to the cadet corps: $3,100 presented by Brighton Legion president Brian MacKenzie and $858 from Colborne Legion president Patti May. The support comes from the proceeds of the annual Remembrance Brighton Cadets commemorated the Battle of Vimy Ridge last week with a parade at the cenotaph in Memorial Park.

Leakage problems detected in municipal water systems By Kate Everson

EMC News - Quinte West Audits have revealed leaky tanks in Trenton and Frankford water treatment plants. “The results for the Trenton and Frankford systems were a Category C,” said Matt Tracey, manager of Water and Wastewater Services. Category C is described as “poor leakage record, tolerable only if water is plentiful and cheap; even then, analyze level and nature of leakage and intensify leak-

age reduction efforts.” Tracey said the rating is not surprising and is typical for communities in Ontario with infrastructure of similar age and materials. The results from the Bayside Water Treatment Plant showed no leakage at all and will require further analysis. Tracey said they need to install flow meters at water towers for leak detection monitoring. He suggested reallocating $200,000 to replace current commercial and industrial water meters as

well as 200 residential meters. He noted that the Trenton Water Treatment Plant Intake Project is still in the design phase and will not be further constructed by the end of 2013. The budget for the project is $350,000 and it is recommended to reallocate $200,000 for the water meter replacement. “Replacement of the meters will improve the accuracy and have positive impacts on water revenues,” he said. The city has about 8,500 water meters in service. About 5,000 of

these are between 15 to 30 years old and exceed the industry recommended useful life. Tracey also recommended installing a fixed network radio reading system for water meter data. “It would be a drive-by reading,” he said. “It would connect to the IT network.” He said putting water meters in 200 homes in Batawa would be a way to do distant metering at night. Chuck Naphan asked if there was any leakage in the equipment. Tracey confirmed

there is no leakage now and the system works well. Don Kuntze asked if this is an ongoing process. Tracey said it is a $2- to $3-million project to replace all the meters. Kuntze noted that since it is water related it is a user-pay system. Tracey said that is correct. Kuntze asked, “Will there be a reassessment of water rates next year to accommodate this?” Tracey said this work will fit in with the current rate structure over a ten-year plan. “We are still looking at it,” he said. “We have changed some priorities.” Please see “Audit” on page 3 R0012035127

Quinte region weathers the storm

By Kate Everson

EMC News - Quinte West - The ice storm is over. “How did we weather the storm?” asked Terry Cassidy in council. Director of Public Works Chris Angelo said the water plants are all operational. There was a minor problem

in Frankford because it does not have a diesel generator. “We brought in vacuum trucks to clean it up,” Angelo said. Public Works crews were on the roads all weekend cleaning up brush and limbs. “Some areas were a bit harder,” he

said. “It will be awhile for some areas. People have to be patient.” He noted that people can clean up their own brush and drop it off free at the Frankford landfill site from Monday to Friday. “Or just leave it along the side of the road,” he said. “We will pick it

up.” Terry Cassidy noted that Earth Day is coming up on April 22 and the Trash Bash is set for this Saturday from 9 a.m. so people can clean up their trash and drop it off at the Public Works yard on Pelham Street. Mayor John Williams said it would

help if people just cleaned up their own area. Angelo noted that Harrington Road is closed for excavation for four to five weeks while significant work is being done on the S-turn. He said they are removing a height of 34 feet from the road.

Chris Angelo said the payback time is very short. The revenues are based on older water meters, some between 30 and 40 years old. They are losing revenues now with inaccurate readings. Mayor John Williams said, “It is a double-edged sword.” He asked what is so complicated they can’t do it all in one year. Tracey said they are working with a consultant on the design and need to work with approval agencies. “It feels a little damp in here,” Williams commented. “I’m missing something.” Tracey said the project is ongoing. The likelihood that they will get through the approval stage in the next cycle is not at this time. Chuck Naphan noted the dive project takes some time. Tracey said they have to proceed cautiously considering safety factors in the river. Jim Harrison asked if there is any estimate at the amount of leakage now. Tracey said it is about 35 per cent. “Trenton and Frankford are similar and Bayside is a little tighter,” he said.

time,” explained Frost. “There’s no way someone can understand how we operate if they don’t sit with our staff. It’s going to take a fair amount of staff time either way.” “The Fire Master Plan cost $70,000 and that was just for one department,” pointed out Councillor Tom Rittwage. “I know some consultants and I don’t understand how businesses can afford them because they charge hundreds of dollars an hour. So I’m pretty confident that where we’re going is probably in the best interest of the taxpayer by utilizing our internal staff and getting some outside help when we need it.” Then, Martinello asked if the purpose of the service delivery review “precludes contracting out,” wondering, “if we found any service that could be done better and more efficiently by being contracted out, would it be considered and presented?” “It’s not excluded,” said Frost. Brighton residents will have their say. The first of two public meetings will be scheduled in May. “Early and ongoing,” were the watchwords from Frost. “We’ll start with a public meeting to

seek some early input and we’ll try to make sure the door is always open.” Forms will be available on the municipal web site and Frost even suggested a separate email address for public comment throughout the process. “We’re going to try everything we can,” she said, adding how the template will include gauging the current level of service against public perception of municipal service. “Staff believes this is a positive step and we believe this is not something that should be done and then forgotten.” When discussion turned to appointing “champions” for the project—someone responsible for being an advocate, supporting the team through completion and communicating the benefits to the community and staff—Kerr and Councillor Mike Vandertoorn were chosen to lead the way. “The champion is not the head of the review,” advised Frost. “I want to be clear on that. They are the advocates to the staff and the community.” The Committee of the Whole voted 5 - 2 in favour of recommending the report to council with Walas and Martinello opposed.

audit,” like they did in Quinte West. “That is what I saw happening,” he said. “Something that would appear to be completely unbiased, done by a professional and would stand the test of public scrutiny.” “Council has had this debate,” countered Frost. “Council made the decision to do it in house. Council directed me to have Mr. Maddocks come and talk about how it was done and to give you a report on how to do that.” “I don’t recall that we decided that this would be done in house,” offered Martinello. But on February 5, Rideau Township CAO Robert Maddocks delivered a presentation to council and senior staff about the value of service delivery reviews and, on February 19, council approved Resolution 2013-125, to “delegate the responsibility for this review to the Committee of the Whole” and directed Frost to “report to the committee on a process to undertake the review.” “Do we know how much this is going to cost … and how does that stack up against an external review?” asked Martinello. “Even if you had someone come in and look at it, it’s going to take a fair amount of staff


EMC News - Brighton - “We’re starting down a very exciting road in the municipality,” said Deputy-mayor Craig Kerr, in his opening remarks as chairperson at a Committee of the Whole meeting called last week to take the first step in creating a service delivery review in Brighton. It didn’t take long for that road to become rocky. “This is a big one,” said municipal CAO Gayle Frost as she delivered an 11-page report. “We’re going to be reviewing almost everything we do or have reviewed in the last little while.” The document suggests deferring the information technology and planning services sectors until county reviews are complete; letting the fire department master plan serve as a review; and delaying environmental services until May next year. But there’s still lots of work to be done. Human resources, finance, parks and recreation, public works, bylaw enforcement and the clerk’s department all need to be examined and, according to the proposed schedule, by the end of January 2014. Councillor John Martinello wondered why the review won’t be an “external

Local cadets hit their marks at championship

EMC News - Trenton - Cadets from across Ontario continue to set their sights on success. More than 125 competitors, along with their coaches and competition staff, participated in the Regional Cadet Marksmanship Championship, held this past weekend in Trenton. “This competition allows cadets to develop important qualities such as self-discipline and confidence, and do so in a fun, all-inclusive sport,” said Lieutenant (Navy) Dwight Koshman, this year’s Chief of Competition. “This year’s results were extremely impressive as the level of competition continues to increase year after year.” The Regional Cadet Marksmanship Competition is one of the final events in the year-long marksmanship training program in which 17,000 cadets right across the province partake annually. The level of skill required to qualify for this competition meant that only top marksmen were eligi-

ble to participate, as each team had to conquer over 250 others in order to be selected for the stage. The mission of the Cadet Marksmanship Program is to develop skills through training and competition which follow a progressive path to achievement where well-organized and professionally delivered events bring cadets together. The Marksmanship Program is patterned on Olympicstyle competitive shooting, and several Canadian Olympians got their start through the Cadet program, including Pat Vamplew and Mike Ashcroft. With the addition of new competitive elements to this year’s championship, coupled with the fun, challenge and friends this competition has always offered, the Cadet Program strives to remain a relevant, credible and proactive youth development organization, offering the program of choice for Canada’s youth—remaining on target and aiming for success!

Four new directors were introduced at the meeting—Phil Badham, Frank Blanchett, Terry Denyes and Viki Hilton—to join Waddling, vice president Bill Murtha, executive assistant Katie Litt, treasurer Elizabeth Nanninga, secretary Tom Groot, media liaison Nichola Battilana, curator Lisa Farrell and director Gord Sillito in the quest to, as Waddling puts it, “move forward producing more arts and culture to the benefit and quality of life of Brighton and area.” “I’m quite excited by the mix we have this year,” he added. “I believe the new board will take BAC to yet another level of contribution to our community through the arts.” Notably, Toronto native Sillito chose Brighton as a place to call home “partly because of the Brighton Arts Council,” says Waddling. “And we’ve heard this before, it was the thing that tipped them over.” BAC formed in 2005 as mostly a writing group that, by 2007, became mostly a painting group. In those days, the membership numbered at less than a dozen but it started to grow. By the end of 2009, the organization reached a milestone: 100 members. By the end of 2012, says Waddling, “we could easily boast 200.” This year, the numbers are again expected to top 200. New this year is a gala fund raiser, in

Local service groups like the Rotary Club, Lions, Friends of Presqu’ile, Downtown Business Improvement Association, Chamber of Commerce and the public library see the value in encouraging or lending support to BAC activities. The Rotary Club recently donated “$500 to promote a continuation of BAC creative strength in the area.” And people love the arts. “Eight in ten Ontarians think the arts are important to their own quality of life,” says the Ontario Arts Council in their report, ‘The Arts and the Quality of Life,’ released in 2010. “Threequarters of Ontarians would miss the arts if they were not available in their community.” BAC has seen great success with the opening last year of their seasonal home, The Gates: a gallery on eight acres, thanks to the generosity of Toronto philanthropist Dr. Norm Forman. He’s charging $12 plus upkeep: for the year. More than 1,000 visits were registered last year at The Gates, based on those who took the time to sign the book. In reality though, the figures are much higher, maybe even double, or more, according to some estimates. “The Gates is going to become much more active this year,” says Waddling. “And we’ve applied for some grants to upgrade the building. We hope it will become year-round facility.”

the city’s capital plan investment for the downtown core,” Angelo noted. In addition, through funding received from Trenval, the interlocking brick pathway will be revitalized from the Veterans Skyway Bridge to the Chamber of Commerce. Front and Dundas Streets will be further revitalized in 2013. The expansion to the patio area involves a 600-millimetre trunk sanitary sewer which transects the Riverfront Square and would be situated under the proposed portable patio, which is why a lease is being negotiated instead of a sale or transfer of property. The municipality currently receives $150 a year for lease of this city-owned land. Chuck Naphan asked if there is an automatic gate for the area and if it was activated by owners. Angelo says the businesses bring in produce or supplies through the gate. There is also a commercial loading zone at TD bank.

EMC News - Trenton - A revised lease agreement for Tomasso’s patio on city-owned land has been approved for 25 years. “This is a lease for additional land behind the restaurant,” noted Chris Angelo, director of Public Works and Environmental Services. He said the lease is for 25 years with a renewable clause for an additional 25 years. The restaurant uses the property for a covered deck and outdoor patio at Riverfront Square (Back of Front) at 39 Front Street in Trenton Ward. “An existing long-term-lease agreement is in place between the city and Tomasso’s restaurant,” Angelo noted at the Public Works meeting. The new agreement is for Tomasso’s to expand their deck and include a “portable at grade patio” on Riverfront Square. “This area was revitalized last year as part of

Contracts worth $300 million awarded to upgrade Hercs and radar By Kate Everson

and day out, as well as being used for jet refuelling. “Our crews are ready to go at any moment,” he said. The base has 17 of the new Hercules-J models and several of the remaining 32 Hercules-H models in the fleet. The older ones have been retired but the 1980s and 1990s models are still effective. “We have to maintain the avionics and stay up-to-date,” Friday said. Cascade Aerospace representative Dwayne Lucas said they are very honoured to serve DND. The radar replacement project will include installation over the next three to four years of seven new surveillance radar and secondary systems at 3 Wing Bagotville, Quebec, 4 Wing Cold Lake, Alberta, 5 Wing Goose Bay, Newfoundland and Labrador, 8 Wing Trenton (one system at an operational site and a second system as technical training for the Aerospace and Telecommunications Engineering Support Squadron), 14 Wing Greenwood, Nova Scotia and 19 Wing Comox, British Columbia. Alexander noted that the radar contract was awarded to a company in Germany which is very specialized. “Not many fit the bill,” he explained. He said many Canadian companies are contracted all around the world in an open economy and a fair procurement process. Cassidian is the defence and security division of the European Aeronautic Defence and Space Company. MPP Rick Norlock said Canada’s aerospace industry is the fifth largest in the world. “We want to keep it and grow it,” he said. He noted the new radar system will

EMC News - Trenton - A contract for $225 million over five years has been awarded to Cascade Aerospace from Abbotsford, B.C., to maintain the Hercules CC-130H fleet at 8 Wing Trenton. A contract for $75.5 million was awarded to Cassidian from Munich, Germany, for new surveillance radar systems at six RCAF air strips including two at 8 Wing Trenton. “This will ensure viability of the fleet,” said Chris Alexander, parliamentary secretary to the Minister of National Defence at the ATESS radar facility at the base on Thursday. He said the country continues to rely on air squadrons as their “eyes in the sky” with aircraft going to some of the most dangerous places in the world. “This is a big part of Canada’s Economic Action Plan,” Alexander said. Colonel Sean Friday said the base is involved in missions around the world, including the far north where the H-model Hercules are working in scientific exploration.

OPINION Parkinson’s Law Expanded EMC Editorial - “Work expands to fill the time available for its completion,” wrote Cyril Northcote Parkinson in 1955, and instantly created a whole new domain in the study of human affairs. “Parkinson’s Law” was one of the most profound insights of the past century, but he didn’t go far enough. There is a media corollary Gwynne Dyer that doesn’t get nearly enough attention. It is this: “International confrontations expand to fill the media space available.” There is a lot of media space available nowadays, and a striking shortage of truly terrifying international threats, so the few modest ones that do exist are magnified to fill the scary news quota. That’s why you hear so much about the North Korean nuclear threat, the Iranian nuclear threat, and the international terrorist threat. Unless you live in South Korea, or Israel, or lower Manhattan, none of these “threats” will ever disturb the even tenor of your life—and even if you do live in one of those places, it is still very unlikely. The very unlikely did happen in lower Manhattan once, 12 years ago, but it is very, very unlikely to happen there again. Nevertheless, 9/11 is used to justify an ongoing “war on terror” that has provided long-term employment for several million people and justified well over a trillion dollars in “defence” spending over the past decade. Which brings us to another law, the Shirky Principle: “Institutions will try to preserve the problem to which they are the solution.” In other words, armed forces, intelligence services and those parts of the foreign policy establishment that have prospered from “fighting terror” will instinctively preserve that threat. They hunt down and kill individual terrorists, of course, but they also keep coming up with new terrorist threats. Moreover, fighting terrorists does not justify aircraft carriers, armoured divisions, and planes like the F-35. Those branches of the armed forces need the threat of wars in which weapons like those might be at least marginally relevant. Credible threats of high-intensity warfare are scarce these days, so you have to be creative. There is, for example, a remote possibility that

Connected to your community

the inexperienced young man who now leads North Korea might be paranoid enough, and the generals who supervise him stupid enough, to attack South Korean forces somewhere. That might lead to a major war in the peninsula. The probability that this would lead to the use of nuclear weapons in the Korean peninsula is vanishingly small. The likelihood that it could lead to the use of nuclear weapons elsewhere is zero. Yet this confrontation is getting as much coverage in the Western mass media as the Berlin crisis did in 1961—and the Asian media generally follow suit. The same is true for the alleged Iranian nuclear threat. Iran is probably not planning to build nuclear weapons, and there is no chance that it would launch a nuclear attack on Israel even if it did build a few. Israel has hundreds of the things, and its response would destroy Iran. Yet the Israelis insist that it might happen anyway because Iranians are crazy—and both Western and Arab media swallow this nonsense. Fifty years ago, during the Berlin crisis, a single misstep could have led to ten thousand nuclear weapons falling on the world’s cities. Bad things can still happen when politicians miscalculate, but the scale of the potential damage is minuscule by comparison. Yet our credulous media give these mini-crises the same coverage that they gave to the apocalyptic crises of the Cold War. Hence Dyer’s Corollary to Parkinson’s Law: International confrontations expand to fill the media space available. Little ones will be inflated to fill the hole left by the disappearance of big ones. The 24-hour news cycle will be fed, and military budgets will stay big. You just have to keep the general public permanently frightened. That’s easy to do, because people in most countries know very little about the world beyond their immediate neighbours. They’ll believe almost anything the media tell them—and most of the media go along with the official sources because scare stories sell a lot better than headlines about the remarkably peaceful state of the world. Humbert Wolfe’s judgement almost a century ago still applies everywhere: You cannot hope to bribe or twist (thank God!) the British journalist But given what the man will do unbribed, there’s no occasion to.


Trying to fathom green energy initiative Dear Editor, When you think of the consequences, you have to seriously ponder whether the provincial government’s Green Energy Act was really an intended conspiracy that had more to do with the redistribution of wealth than an environmental initiative. The question surfaces because of the upsurge in the number of municipalities currently coming out in protest of the attempted installations of wind turbines. A citizens group is currently fighting to prevent a pair of ten-megawatt turbines from being located near Grafton and Centreton. Meanwhile, Ontario’s Conservative caucus is trying to get the Ensuring Affordable Energy Act approved because of major concerns being voiced by taxpayers. Although I doubt the Liberals and NDP will go along with antigreen measures, the energy initiative makes a lot of sense. It would give municipalities the final say on whether wind turbines will be permitted in their specific areas. In addition, turbines would have to be considered affordable, meaning the cost per kilowatt hour must compare with other sources of generation. The Act also eliminates the costly feed-in tariff (FIT) and municipalities would have the ability to decide whether or not they want to promote wind energy. The Niagara Escarpment and the Oak Ridges Moraine would be protected from turbines and municipalities would regain their planning powers so they can decide on environmental matters instead of the province. Green energy has been a complete misconception from the outset. You have to wonder whether it was spurred on by government duplicity. The Liberals knew they didn’t have the resources to bring it to reality so they simply forced the taxpayers to pay double and triple for electrical costs to fund what has been an economic catastrophe. Of course,

250 Sidney St., Belleville, ON K8P 5L6 Phone: 613-966-2034 Fax: 613-966-8747

the greens and environmentalists turn a blind eye to the scam despite the fact that the government was all about grabbing billions to offer the needed green subsidies. Have our brilliant government officials considered the consequences of these 500-foot turbines all over the countryside. Not really. For instance, in Denmark, the foundations of some 1,000 Danish offshore wind turbines are crumbling. Denmark now faces lawsuits over the liability and the yet unknown bills for repairs. Like Ontario, the Danes already have the most expensive electricity costs in Europe solely because of the huge number of wind farms that clutter the countryside and the enormous green subsidies they attract. You, as an electrical user, are paying for those subsidies. If you think that I’m just one little voice crying in the wilderness, consider that the Rural Ontario Municipalities Association (ROMA) and the Ontario Federation of Agriculture have also condemned the installation of turbines. A total of 79 municipalities have called for a moratorium on wind turbines. The Ontario Auditor General has also pointed out that turbines are not replacing coal-fired plants nor cutting greenhouse gas emissions. It means consumers pay twice for wind energy while adding skyrocketing electricity costs that are a major threat to jobs.    We think former Premier Dalton McGuinty and other members of his caucus should be forced to appear before an independent investigative inquiry board to answer why green energy was introduced at a time when taxpayers could least afford it. Seems to me it had more to do with left wing environmental bias than common sense. Rolly Ethier, Campbellford

Please … give us a break By Terry Bush

EMC Editorial - Seriously??? Justin Trudeau had barely been crowned Liberal leader when the Tory illuminati found it necessary to unleash attack ads, rolling out their first, in what will probably be a two and a halfyear series of American-inspired nonsense. Once again, the Conservative Party has dispelled the myth that Canadian politicians are a little bit classier than their American counterparts. Stephen Harper and crew must be really worried about this Justin fellow to try to sully his image even before he’d taken his seat as Liberal leader. Why else would they even bother with such tripe without an election anywhere on the horizon. With only 34 seats and third party status, does anyone really think the Trudeau Liberals will sweep the nation next time round? After all, the return to power was a long time coming for the Tories, post Mulroney. Do we, as Canadians, really need to stoop this low? Is it time for opposition parties to lower themselves and fight fire with fire? In the Conservatives’ latest offering, Justin Trudeau removes his shirt to the sounds of carnival music as the propaganda rolls. Seriously, does removing one’s shirt to show an undershirt make a politician a target for character assassination? Considering the video was shot at a fund raiser to battle liver cancer, and Trudeau raised $2,000 for the cause, who are the real asses here. The Huffington Post might say the Tories fit the bill considering they used the video without permission. One would have to wonder if our local Conservative MPs are on board with this negative way of doing business. I for one, don’t want to be subjected to years of this rubbish every time I turn on the television set. And I don’t care who is behind it, Conservatives, Liberals, members of the NDP, it doesn’t matter, playing gutter politics serves no one well. If the Tories or NDP are worried about Justin Trudeau, then squash him like a bug in the House of Commons. We’ll all see the replay on the news and laugh, same as we would if Stephen Harper or Thomas Mulcair found themselves under the bus. Political junkies don’t want any of that namby-pamby stuff. Politics is a blood sport many of us enjoy. If you act like an idiot, you deserve to be body slammed. But most sports have rules and some of these negative attack ads are definitely out of bounds. What kind of example are they setting for the youth of today who will see them ad nauseam? Are these ads really any different from the cyber-bullying that is front and centre in our society? Many are just outright lies. Most take quotes out of context and all show the subject in the most unflattering light, the whole point of the exercise. Easy to do if you’re dealing with some of the recent Liberal candidates like Stephane Dion or the wooden Michael Ignatieff, the Grits American candidate for prime minister. But sometimes, negative ads backfire. Think Kim Campbell and the ads making fun of Jean Chretien’s face. Maybe the Conservatives are worried this Trudeau guy is a different beast altogether. They say he has no experience but then again, neither did Stephen Harper and he’s done all right for himself. Most of the old guard of the Liberal Party is history, either retired at home or retired living the life of Riley as a senator. It’s almost like Trudeau and crew are starting fresh. Maybe that’s what’s got the Conservatives all flustered. Despite being saddled with his father’s last name, Trudeau the Younger certainly isn’t lacking in charisma, something sorely lacking in some of the other party leaders. He won’t win many votes in Alberta. Chances are he won’t do too well in Quebec. But the rest of the country, who knows. Maybe Canadians will think it’s time for a different sort of prime minister when the next election rolls around. Either that or they’ll figure the Liberals have just plain run out of electable candidates and are as committed to recycling names as their provincial counterparts are to renewable energy. Either Justin Trudeau establishes himself as a serious candidate in the next couple of years or he crashes and burns like the Liberal leaders before him. The Tories better watch it though. If the Canadian public is subjected to years of negativity before they head to the polls, they may just vote for anyone but the Tories.

Capital Works in progress for road repairs

EMC News - Quinte West - North Trent Street in Frankford and the bridge expansion are going ahead this spring, along with various paving of roads throughout the city. Tim Colasante, manager of engineering, told the Public Works committee that paving will take place on County Road #2, Tripp Boulevard, Johnstown Road and various parking lots. Don Kuntze asked about run-off from the parking lots. “We need to let Mother Nature take care of it,” he said. Colasante said they have to deal with the storm systems and need to get enough clearance. He said all the paving should be complete by October. He noted there are issues on Johnstown Road. Jim Harrison commented, “We know what he’s talking about.”

Show on April 19,” he said. “Notice and information will be handed out by engineering staff.” Jim Turner, manager of Outdoor Operations, reported on surface treatments for roads. The total in Sidney Ward was $370,000 and in Murray Ward was $620,000 but the budget is only $525,000. “You’re $400,000 short,” Mayor John Williams said. “Maybe Chris Angelo can get the money somewhere.” Angelo said he will take a trip with Turner to take a look at all the roads on the priority list. He said there might be savings on the Harrington Road project they could reallocate. Reconstruction of Harrington Road started April 15 and there have been message boards installed on Glen Miller Road and at Wallbridge Road. School buses were notified of turnaround points. Scaletta asked why this was being done in-

The city will be reconstructing Dundas Street East between Ontario and South Street as part of the Dundas Street East revitalization, beginning mid-April. “Details of this project include new sidewalks, curbs, asphalt, new street lighting to match the west side of the river, decorative benches, interlock brick, trees, underground works, new watermain, sanitary upgrades and restructuring of the storm sewer,” Colasante reported. Completion is expected by September. Mayor John Williams asked if the property owners were notified. Colasante said he has contacted two or three and admitted there will be some inconvenience during the course of the work. The first public consultation will be in June. “The first kickoff of the public consultation component will happen at this year’s Quinte West Home

house instead of contracting the work out. Turner said they had to deal with landowners and other conditions. “We can do it more cost effective” he said. Turner noted that $75,000 has been allotted to DJ Whites and Christiani Road improvements which will be shared with Brighton Township 50/50. However, Brighton has not budgeted for this road this year. “We need to keep this boundary road on the priority list,” he said. “There are taxpayers there.” Jim Harrison said he was disappointed in Brighton. “We have been trying to get money out of them for years,” he said. “It’s like trying to get money out of the Liberal government.” Angelo said Brighton has budgeted the road for 2014 but it needs to be done now. Williams said he will speak with Mayor Walas.

Drivers using GPS taking wrong emergency detour routes By Kate Everson

EMC News - Quinte West - Vehicles being diverted from Highway 401 in emergencies are messing up city roads. “The GPS units tell drivers to take every exit possible on roads they should not be on,” explained Chris Angelo, director of Public Works and Environmental Services. “They should only be using emergency signed routes.” Jim Alyea commented at the Public Works committee meeting that he gets “tons of calls” from people complaining of high traffic volumes on their rural roads including large trucks. “We need to divert them or stop them,” he said. “Some trucks are beating the hell out of the roads.”

B:21.125” T:20.625” S:19.125”

Angelo said the city has been trying for two decades to get nearby municipalities to work with them on the problem. “There has been no success,” he said. “We hope to be a leader and get the signs up.” He said there should be automatic gates that close at certain intersections, like Highway 30 and Telephone Road. “We have to do something,” he said. The Ministry of Transportation has recently advised it is preparing to move forward with the city in implementing an Emergency Detour Route through Quinte West. A map has been drawn up showing the most viable routes for diverting traffic from the 401 in case of emergency. A draft resolution has been approved by the city.

Iqaluit provides warm welcome for refs

EMC News - Stirling - After returning from the Great White North, and the northernmost point he’s ever visited, Zachary Brandt has hung up his skates for another hockey season, but he admits 2012-2013 will be a particularly memorable one. After eight years wearing the black and white stripes, it marks his first year as an on-ice official at the Junior level and culminated with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Brandt, who lives in Stirling but currently attends Carleton University, was one of four Ottawa-area referees selected by Hockey Canada to officiate a Midget tournament in Iqaluit, Nunavut’s capital located on Baffin Island’s Frobisher Bay, and a community of about 6,000 people. Last weekend Brandt officiated his last four games of the season in Ottawa. The weekend before, in Iqaluit, there were 23 games of high level minor

hockey on the schedule and not a tree in sight. “We were flying up there and it was just snow and ice. Nothing but snow and ice and rocks,” Brandt says of much of the 2,100-kilometre flight north from Ottawa. And from the time they arrived on the ground, he says, they were treated as special guests to the community.

“Here, you always get people yelling at the refs.” The population, Brandt says, is about half Inuit and half Caucasian, sharing an extremely remote but modernized community where the aboriginal culture and practices are both prominent and separate but with plenty of common ground. Featuring a pair of arenas, the community’s core is not unlike that of a comparably sized Canadian town far to the south, he says, despite the distance

to any other settlement. On the outskirts, more snow and ice and rocks and “it’s windy all the time,” says Brandt. But the welcome the visiting officials received from the fans was like nothing he’d experienced in a hockey rink. “They were so respectful of the referees,” he says of both the players and the spectators who attended throughout the weekend. “Here, you always get people yelling at the refs,” he

says of contentious calls. “But there it didn’t matter what you called, they were just so grateful to have us there.” The visiting officials also provided instruction and guidance for resident volunteers who otherwise have little access to clinics or workshops to improve their skills or nationally sanctioned tournaments with highly experienced refs and linesmen to offer a few tips. And as the tournament wound down, the final

game was refereed by a local Inuit official “and he was pretty excited about that,” Brandt says. With the hopes of pursuing a career on the ice, Brandt is completing his third year at Carleton with the intention of returning in the fall to complete his commerce degree next spring. But before summer ends, he’ll be back on his skates in preparation for another hockey season as well.

Brighton civic awards ceremony at gala evening By Ray Yurkowski

EMC News - Brighton - Local resident Winnie Evans was named Brighton’s Citizen of the Year at the annual civic awards gala evening held last weekend at the community centre. “Shocked” is how she describes her reaction to hearing her name announced as the winner of the prestigious honour. “I had no idea. “I’ve been volunteering for years but I never thought of getting an award for it. I just love people.” “Winnie embodies what a volunteer is,” said nominator Applefest Lodge activity co-ordinator Lisa Gilmore. “If she can, she will. Volunteering is not just what she does; it’s in her nature. It’s who she is.” Evans tells the tale of starting music lessons at the age of 60, almost a part of her heritage as she recalls a grandfather who was a champion fiddler.

Now, at 81, she is the driving force behind a group of old-time country fiddlers who have been entertaining in the area for many years. “I just love to see them smile and watch their feet dance when I start that fiddle up,” said Evans. “It’s fun.” Junior Citizen of the Year honours went to Amanda Baker, who actually thanked East Northumberland Secondary School (ENSS) brass: principal Jeff Kawzenuk along with vice principals Doug Birch and Jessica Outram. “Without them, ENSS would not offer the plethora of activities we have,” she said. And Baker has been busy: participating in various bands, choirs and dramatic performances at the school as well as serving on student government, this year as prime minister. Along with all that, she still finds time to volunteer in extra curricular

school and community endeavours including sitting as student representative on the Brighton and District Chamber of Commerce. On the award, she said, “It’s nice to be recognized but I’m only one of many outstanding students at the high school. There are so many there who go above and beyond.” “Our volunteers and partners are critical to our municipality and we can’t thank them enough,” said Mayor Mark Walas, in his address to the crowd. “But that’s exactly what I’m doing tonight, saying ‘thank you.’ “Without your commitment, without your hard

work, without your involvement and without your dedication, our community would not be what it is today.” Other civic award winners included Jake DeGroot Sr., Alfred Gregg, Fred Payne and Doug Platt (athletics) for their work in minor hockey; Bill Murtha (arts); Mary Gibb (community service) and Mike Gerry (humanitarian). When accepting his award, Murtha thanked wife Judy, family and friends, “for allowing the weird artist to exist.” “It’s nice when you can get an award for things that are fun,” noted Gibb.

Bylaw enforcement officer Ron Grumeth surveyed firearms discharge regulations in other municipalities and found most do not add buffer zones and the changes suggested would result in most of the municipality becoming “no firearms discharge” areas. “By receiving this report, there will be no changes to what is currently in place,” said Deputy-mayor Craig Kerr to a crowd of concerned hunting enthusiasts assembled in the gallery. “It’s unfortunate we got to where we are,” added Councillor Tom Rittwage. “The discussion about Sunday gun hunting turned into something more … but federal and provincial laws will trump anything we pass anyway.” In a recorded vote, council unanimously voted to receive the report for information.

EMC News - Brighton - After hearing a delegation last month ask for changes to the local firearms bylaw, municipal council decided, at their regular meeting Monday night, to leave things as they are. Rob Greco and Andreas Becker requested an amendment to bylaw 187-2003 to add “safety buffers” around the delineated no discharge areas. The Brighton residents wanted buffers set at 1,110 metres for shotguns and 4,000 metres for rifles so firearms would be prohibited within the defined area as well as the safety zone. The current bylaw prohibits the discharge of firearms in the Brighton urban area as well as the hamlets (Smithfield, Hilton, Orland and Codrington); shoreline residential areas; Spring Valley School property; and municipal land where the

He is located at the Brighton site of the Family Health Team, 170 Main Street, Brighton (colocated in the same building as the YMCA). Dr. Duchaine is originally from northern Ontario and completed his medical training through the University of Toronto in 1990. He followed his training

West Family Health Team. As a Brighton resident Dr. Duchaine says, “I am so excited that I will be [practising] in the same town where I live. Being able to offer health care to community residents that don’t have a family physician is very important and working in a collaborative team environment helps to ensure that our patients receive high quality care.” Dr. Glenn Griffin, board president of the Brighton Quinte West Family Health Team commented, “To be able to welcome Sylvain to this clinic is wonderful news for the residents of the area who

have been without a family doctor. I, and the rest of the team, have worked with him in the past and are looking forward to having him as a signatory physician with the Brighton Quinte West Family Health Organization”. The Brighton clinic where Dr. Duchaine will be practicing is one of three sites that are part of the Brighton Quinte West Family Health Team. There are three other physicians also located at this site, Dr. Richard Wiginton, Dr. James Larmer and Dr. Michelle Cohen. Dr. Duchaine is starting a new family practice and is taking on new patients

who do not have a family physician in the community. He is bilingual so a good addition for those patients who have French as their first language. Staff at the clinic have started the process of contacting the people on the waiting list who have not been able to obtain a family doctor as of yet. If you do not have a family physician and live in the local area please contact the Brighton clinic. More information about the Brighton Quinte West Family Health Team and patient applications can be found on their web site at <www.>.

Paramedics the new piece to the puzzle in bypass program

EMC News - Campbellford - Paramedics Karen Juskiw and Robert Lloyd know what the newly launched STEMI bypass program can do for patients living here. “The program is definitely the right thing to do as far as patient outcomes in the end,” said Lloyd. First reported by Trent Hills Regional News it means that heart attack patients from here will no longer be transported to Campbellford Memorial Hospital (CMH) by Emergency Medical Services (EMS), Northumberland County. They will go directly to the Peterborough Regional Health Centre’s (PRHC) cath lab.

Dr. Warren Ball, interventional cardiologist at the Peterborough Regional Health Centre and Jeff Dunlop, co-ordinator, PRHC’s cardiac catheterization lab talked with Trent Hills Regional News about the newly launched Code STEMI bypass program. Photo: Submitted

Rowing club breaks ground on new boat house

EMC News - Trenton - After months of fund raising to build a boat house for the newly formed Trenton Rowing and Paddling Club they are ready to move forward with the project. The design of the new boat house was completed by Lassing Dibben Consultant Engineering and the contract for the construction of the building has been awarded to Ducon Contractors; both businesses are located here in Quinte West. “It is wonderful to work with local businesses,” says Suzanne Andrews, manager at the Quinte West Chamber of Commerce and treasurer for the Rowing Club. “Lassing Dibben has been involved with this project from the very start and has been instrumental in designing a building that will meet the needs of the Rowing Club and be esthetically pleasing as it will be located in Kiwanis Park, along the east bank of the Trent River. Ducon Contractors are well known in the Quinte Region for their quality construction and are ready to start the project as soon as the ground is ready.” The building permit has been issued by the City of Quinte West and work will be starting on April 22. “The city have been great to work with,” says Jacques Pilon, vice-president of the Trenton Rowing and Paddling Club and responsible for overseeing the construction of the boat house. “The mayor and city staff have worked with us from the very beginning including the leasing of the land, the development of the site plan and approval of necessary permits. Their support has really helped to move this project forward so we could be ready to go this spring.” The boat house is expected to be completed by June 1, just in time for

EMC News - Quinte West - Jim Alyea wants to know if sending buses to Queen’s Park will help their hospital (Trenton Memorial). “They will be cutting $5 million more in the next five years,” Alyea told council Monday night. “We have to do something.” Mayor John Williams said, “I have talked to the CEO and they won’t listen. Picton is sending three buses to Queen’s Park but they don’t want us to come. I don’t know if it will make a difference.” Williams noted that some small hospitals “went a different direction” by splitting from amalgamation. He has asked for the names of these hospitals to start a dialogue. Alyea added, “I don’t even know who represents us.” Williams said the board kicked the mayors off a few years back and there is no control over what is being done. He said they are still working on the lab issue. “We will keep doing what we can do,” he said. Sally Freeman said that rather than a petition they have sent 2,100 individual letters from residents. Williams noted, “The ministry is spending $6.5 million for a new health centre. But that doesn’t make up for QHC. It’s great for downtown, but they don’t have $400,000 for a lab.” Jim Alyea commented, “It’s a fractured system. That was not a wise decision.” Freeman said they begged to have the health centre included with the Family Health Team. “We have doctors, yet they can’t be provided for in our building.” Paul Kyte asked if the lab is definitely going out of TMH. Williams said it is scheduled for October 1.

the job. We were stretched to the limit using all our staff between eleven and thirteen hours along with all the equipment we had available. “At five a.m., the trucks were on the road, sanding, in anticipation of ice forming on the roadways. By seven a.m. all the roads were sanded and that helped a lot because we didn’t notice any accidents related to icy road conditions.” About 6:30 a.m., the first calls were received about road blockages by falling trees or hydro poles he said. “By eight o’clock that evening, all the road blockages were cleared and all municipal services were functioning well.” Drzewiecki estimates public works staff cleared about 50 road blockages and notified Hydro One about additional obstructions caused by fallen power lines. “It was a great effort from our public works staff who really demonstrated a high level of dedication and real team spirit,” he said. Drzewiecki praised inter-department efforts from the fire department along with Northumberland County and Cramahe Township staff that helped clear the roads in some locations. “We appreciate all of the efforts,” said Mayor Mark Walas. “It was very well handled.”


EMC News - Brighton - At their regular meeting Monday night, municipal council applauded the efforts of local firefighters and public works staff as a major ice storm swept through southern Ontario last weekend. Hydro One reported thousands of area residents in Brighton, Quinte West, Frankford, Stirling and north of Belleville were without power in the aftermath of the storm. “Our [Friday] morning started at 7 a.m.,” fire chief Lloyd Hutchinson told council. “At times we were pretty thin on numbers but we were able to rise to the challenges we faced—arcing [hydro] lines, medical calls and structure fires— and with the mutual aid help from our neighbours; we were able to get through it.” Hutchinson recalled some co-operative moments with public works staff. “If they got a call about a downed tree and we were going by; if we were able, we’d move it so they could go on to other areas,” he said. “It was a really long day,” added public works director Andrew Drzewiecki. “For public works, it started at three o’clock in the morning. “All public works staff, including the mechanic, who volunteered, were out on

Capital investments announced for CHCs

conference April 8 where the Minister of Rural Af- Gateway CHC as well as a capital investment for EMC News - Tweed - The Gateway Commu- fairs Jeff Leal announced funding has been made Belleville-Quinte West who have been operating a nity Health Centre (CHC) in Tweed held a press available for a 10,000-square-foot expansion of community health centre out of portables and will now be building a new centre. “Rural communities have unique health care needs; this is why the programs and services offered by Gateway and Belleville Quinte West Community Health Centres are essential and will be further enhanced with the construction of new facilities. This will result in more programs and services available to more clients, strengthening the rural community it serves,” said Leal. Leal was asked if a dollar value had been put on the project and said the process will involve sending out requests for tenders in the newspaper and waiting for dollar estimates to come, at which time they will be examined and have to go through an approval process. Once the tenders have been accepted then a date to begin construction could be established. After Doctor Andy Quinn (primary care physician at Gateway) thanked Minister Leal from all the staff he said, “We need to thank the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care for supporting our capital request to renovate our existing structure but also to build a new 10,000-square-foot primary care building. [The existing building will be used mainly for administration and programming]. We also want to thank the Southeast LHIN board and Minister of Rural Affairs Jeff Leal and Gateway Community Health Centre’s Doctor Andy Quinn are seen here in one of the smallstaff and our own board of directors along with Lyn er treatment rooms at Gateway. They are seen here with Gateway client Wayne Wheeler. Photo: Scott Pettigrew Linton and Louise Griff, who worked tirelessly on this initiative since 2009.” Doctor Quinn said the existing Gateway building was built 20 years ago and of the 10,000 square feet, there is only about 5,200 that is usable space. “At that time we envisioned never having more than 19 staff and we now have 30.

and nurses. It will also allow us to solve many of the problems in the existing building.” Asked if there would be any interruption in services at Gateway Quinn said everything would continue as normal. Once the new building is finished, people would be treated there and the renovations to the existing building would then be done. “Today’s announcement for a capital investment to create a permanent site for the Quinte West centre means people living in the area will have improved access to services they need. Their complex health care needs and often limited access to health care will be effectively addressed through our permanent site. We are very excited to move forward with our plans to achieve ongoing site for service delivery to our clients and the community,” said Michael Piercy, chair of the board of directors for Belleville Quinte West CHC.

This will be a tremendous boost for health services in our community.” The Gateway CHC and Belleville Quinte West CHC are two of 17 sites across Ontario to benefit from community capital improvement projects this year. There are 101 CHCs throughout Ontario providing care for more than 300,000 people. “This will be a tremendous boost for health services in our community,” said Tweed Mayor Jo-Anne Albert. “It is very heartening to acknowledge the continued commitment by the province to the rural lifestyle and more specifically our health needs. The Gateway CHC is a vital part of our community … they are a great community partner with the municipality, the Eastern Ontario Trails Alliance, the Kiwanis Club, Salvation Army, schools; I don’t think there an organization in Tweed they have not partnered with over the years.”

Fish and Game Club’s annual gun show a hit

By Steve Jessel

EMC News - Belleville - The annual Belleville and District Fish and Game Club HCAC Gun Show attracted more than 300 people this year, including a wide range of hunters, collectors and outdoor enthusiasts to check out a variety of wares on display. “A lot of people that you didn’t even actually realize hunt come down,” said club president Mary Woodcock. Taking place on Sunday, April 14, at the club facility in Belleville, roughly 20 vendors displayed rifles, pistols, shotguns, swords, collectors items, general hunting equipment and more for interested customers. The annual show has been running since 1991, and Woodcock said that part of the goal of the show is to help raise the club’s profile and membership, and it seems to be working. The club can now boast over 150 members up from 85 last year, and Woodcock said thanks is due partly to the popularity of the show. “[Vendors] are getting all differ-

ent people,” Woodcock said. “Vendors like coming down because they get people from [different areas].” Russ Brownson has been attending the show for the past 15 years as a vendor, and said a major draw is seeing a slew of familiar faces each year. Originally from Madoc, Brownson came from Peterborough for the show, looking to sell or trade parts of the small collection he brought this year. “I like to see the people, you get to know the people that come here, both the customers and the vendors, and it’s nice to see them,” he said. “We like the atmosphere of shows.” Brownson said the majority of customers are generally hunters, but there is a good mix of collectors as well. “It’s mostly hunting equipment, but I mean guys that collect come too, because you never know what you’re going to find,” he said.

EMC Lifestyles - Hastings/Prince Edward Spring can uncover some unwanted items in public places including used syringes that always pose a health threat. Used syringes (also called needles) can carry HIV, hepatitis B and hepatitis C viruses. It is important to recognize discarded needles and to know what to do if you see one. Being jabbed or pricked by one is called a needle-stick injury. If you experience a needle-stick injury you should seek immediate medical attention. Children may come across a used needle in a park or other public place, says Stephanie McFaul, communicable disease program manager with the Hastings & Prince Edward Counties Health Unit. Teach your children what a syringe looks like and advise them never to touch one and to let an adult

know if they see one. To see a photo of a used needle go to<www.> and, from the main menu, choose Communicable Disease Control/Needle Exchange/Found Needles. Property owners have the legal responsibility for removing used syringes from their property but they can get assistance from the health unit or the police. The health unit can provide a sharps container, a hard, plastic container designed to safely hold used needles, for those who need one. Follow these steps carefully if you come across a used needle: Do not touch the needle. If you do not have a sharps container, call for help. Call your local police department at their

These changes bring sweeping new powers to the CRA to audit and assess Probate applications and further powers to reassess the final tax return up to four years after filing. New Provincial Offence provisions will be included, for false or misleading statements in regard to the Application. Executors will be required to keep detailed records that “enable the accurate determination of tax payable.” Christian was very pleased with the number of guests accepting our invitations. “More than 245 guests attended the three Estate Info Sessions held in Trenton and Belleville between October and February. At the most recent Info Session, this past February, we had 105 guests attend at the First Pentecostal Church in Belleville. Most guests came despite freezing rain and bad driving conditions. This shows us that this topic is very important to people.” The next Info Session will be on Tuesday, April 30th at 7:00pm at the Trenton Christian School on 340 2nd Dug Hill Road, located south of Walmart in Trenton.

City rejected for pumping station upgrade “We regret to inform you that the city of Quinte West is not eligible to move forward to the application phase of the MIII program,” writes Kristen Green, manager of Rural Program Branch of the Ministry of Agriculture. “Was there no reason?” asked Mayor John Williams at the Public Works committee. Chris Angelo, director of Public Works and Environmental Services, said, “No. A number of municipalities didn’t make that round.” Jim Harrison commented, “Some people make public who to vote for.” Don Kuntze replied, “We have to tell them!” The Dundas Street Sewage Pumping Station is located in close proximity to the east bank of the Trent River, and immediately

south of the east abutment of the Dundas Trenton Wastewater Treatment Plant,” Angelo noted. “This Street bridge crossing the river.

Upgrades were made in 1976 for emergency power and one new pump, but otherwise the station remains unchanged from its original construction. An assessment was done in 2012 by JL Richards and Associates who concluded the station needs to be upgraded for future capacity as identified by the growth areas in the Trenton service area. Total upgrade costs are estimated at over $5 million. “The Dundas Street pumping station represents 75 per cent of the daily flow to the

are proud to announce

EMC News - Brighton - At their regular meeting Monday night, municipal council gave the go-ahead for improvements to King Edward Park, the Harbour Street parkette and the Ontario Street boat launch with approvals of a series of five reports from parks and recreation director Jim Millar. Through two separate projects, King Edward Park will see the installation of a new fibreglass pedestrian bridge, three cantilever shade shelters and seven steel-framed picnic tables; all components of the park master plan, which was approved in 2012. The Lower Trent Conservation (LTC) Authority will refurbish the Harbour Street location with a shoreline naturalization demonstration project. “It will, no doubt, give the area a more inviting look,” said Millar, in his report. “And it does fall into the strategic plan of enhancing

our waterfront. I like the fact there will still be access points to the water and the plantings will be natural perennials, which are suitable for shoreline growth. “From the municipality, as well as approvals, LTC is asking for assistance in the care and maintenance of the parkette after the project is completed as well as help in providing some equipment, manpower and hauling some materials to the site. The hope is the bulk of the plantings and manpower will come from volunteers and LTC staff.” Municipal and Ministry of Natural Resources officials will sign a five-year memorandum of understanding for the Ontario Street boat launch site. The draft document suggests there will be no fees but the municipality would be obligated to continue maintaining the property. “We’ve been doing it for as long as I can remember anyway,” said Councillor Mike

Vandertoorn. The intention of the agreement is to establish improvements to the area including a picnic gazebo; creation of municipal trail connections; management of parking areas; and landscaping to provide benefit to the municipality, the Ministry and the public says the memorandum. An application will be made to the Great Lakes Guardian Community Fund to help pay for the project along with the expansion of the existing walking path from the base of the boat launch site to the entrance to Presqu’ile Provincial Park.

Parks projects get thumbs up from council

Stephanie Delong


EMC News - Quinte West - A priority project on the Dundas Street Pumping Station has been rejected for funding by government. The province is making $51 million available at the beginning of 2013-2014 to help address critical road, bridge, water and wastewater projects identified as top priorities. The Municipal Infrastructure Investment Initiative (MIII) capital program is targeted to municipalities that would be unable to undertake these projects without provincial funding. Pre-screening of applications was sent before the January 9 deadline to the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs.

The “Ultimate” sport By Steve Jessel

EMC Sports - Belleville - Not all sports are played with a puck or a ball, and with the Belleville Ultimate Disc Association (BUDA) now entering its second summer season, the league is looking for some new players to come out and swell their ranks. “I really like the fitness aspect and the camaraderie between players,” said league representative Brice McCarroll. “It’s really one of those sports where it bases itself on sportsmanship and having fun.”

While many know the sport as “Ultimate Frisbee,” the game is more colloquially known as simply “Ultimate,” and revolves around passing a Frisbee between teammates in order to score points. While the summer league is ages 18 and over, the sport is appropriate for almost all ages and fitness levels. McCarroll said that the learning curve can take a couple months to learn how to throw the disc properly, but that the rules of the game are simple enough.

“If you can run and catch, you can pretty much play,” McCarroll said with a laugh. The BUDA summer season gets under way on May 21, and registration is currently ongoing through the month of April. After the inaugural season saw roughly 65 people come out and join the league, McCarroll is hoping for more like 80 to 90 players this season, in order to fill six teams. “The first year it was a lot of fun, people loved it, and we did a lot of learning as well because it was our first year,” McCarroll said. Games take place Tuesday nights at Albert College, and the season runs for 14 weeks. All skill levels are welcome and no previous experience is required. “We take it easy, we don’t go hardcore,” McCarroll said. “The best way to learn is to come out and play.” For more information, including how to register and the full rules of the game, visit the BUDA web site at <>.

Bulls advance to conference finals By Steve Jessel

We have a full agenda planned for you:

Brice McCarroll was closely guarded by Robert Iny. Photo: Steve Jessel

EMC Sports - Belleville - The Belleville Bulls are off to the OHL Eastern Conference finals after a dominating showing over the outmatched Sudbury Wolves, and will now face the Barrie Colts for the chance to play for the J. Ross Robertson Cup, beginning with game one on Friday, April 19, at the Yardmen Arena in Belleville. After winning the first three games of their semi-final series by a combined score of 14 - 4, the Bulls brought out the brooms and swept the Sudbury Wolves from the play-offs after a 5 - 0 win on Thursday, April 11. With his second consecutive shutout, Bulls goaltender Malcolm Subban has now not allowed a goal in over 135 minutes of hockey, while Bulls forward Tyler Graovac sits second in play-off scoring with five goals and 12 assists through 10 games. Graovac was named the OHL’s 2012-2013 recipient of the William Hanley Trophy for the league’s most sportsmanlike player of year this past week, after recording only 18 penalty minutes this season. Graovac also sat inside the top 20 in league scoring with 73 points, and narrowly edged out OHL Rookie of the Year Connor McDavid for the award, garnering 43 points during the voting process to McDavid’s 42. Graovac will be presented with the William Hanley Trophy at the 2012-2013 OHL Awards Ceremony set for Tuesday, June 4, at the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto. The Bulls will certainly need both Graovac and Subban firing on all cylinders when they face their toughest test of these play-offs so far in the Barrie Colts. The two teams met just twice this season with each taking a victory, however, through the first two rounds of the play-offs the Colts have yet to lose a single game. After scoring 22 goals in a four-game sweep of the Kingston Frontenacs in the first round, the Colts also swept the Oshawa Generals in four games in the Eastern Conference semi-finals. Barrie is led by Winnipeg Jets 2011 seventh-overall NHL draft pick Mark Scheifele, who recorded 79 points in just 45 games this season, and has 16 points through the Colts first eight play-off games this year.


Cold Creek Comets win provincial bronze By Ray Yurkowski

EMC Sports - Brighton - On the heels of winning the Lower Lakes Female Hockey League Midget “B” championship, the Cold Creek Comets finished their season as provincial bronze medallists. At the Ontario Women’s Hockey Association play-offs in Ottawa, the Comets opened their round-robin pool schedule with a 3 - 0 win over the Scarborough Sharks before taking a 2 - 0 loss to the Mount Brydges Cougars. A 3 - 0 win over the Markham-Stouffville Stars capped the preliminary round and allowed the Comets squad to advance to the quarterfinals, where the Comets defeated the Mount Forest Rams 1 - 0. In the semi-final match up, it took three overtime periods for the Smiths Falls Cubs to fell the Comets 3 - 2. The Cubs scored the winning goal at 7:04 of the sixth period to advance to the goldmedal match. The Comets overpowered the Toronto Leaside Wildcats 4 - 1 in the final game of the tournament, to win the bronze. Emma Smith (five), Jenna Davis (two), Nicole Vincent (two), Kristen Allanson, Miranda Fraser, Kate Stewart and Sara Wood scored for the Comets with assists from Allanson (three), Davis (three), Amber Miller (three), Smith (two), Stewart (two), Wood (two), Fraser, Allie Simpson and Vincent. Goaltender Katie Lewis registered The Cold Creek Comets mined bronze at a recent Ontario Women’s Hockey Association championship tournament in Ottawa. The Cold Creek Midget “B” Comets are: Kristen Allanson, Hailey Bandy, Erin Cassibo, Marina Comeau, Jenna Davis, Miranda Fraser, Amanda Lajoie, Katie Lewis, Amber Miller, Allie Simpson, Emma Smith, Kate Stewart, Nicole Vincent, Alissa Wardhaugh and Sara Wood along with coaches John all four wins for the local squad.

EMC News - Quinte West - The city is going ahead with building comfort stations in Centennial Park. “We need to make a decision so this is available this summer,” said Chris Angelo, director of Public Works. The city will reallocate $225,000 that had been designated for field lighting for soccer. The Quinte West Soccer Club had hoped to get funding from a Trillium Grant application but that was refused once and they reapplied in March. “We can’t wait,” Angelo said. Chuck Naphan agreed. “Games could be scheduled around lighting but you can’t schedule use of washrooms.” Mayor John Williams asked if the building would also be used for an office for the soccer club. Angelo said yes, the club will pay $1,000 a month for rent of the facility renting for 50 months plus utilities. Maintenance is estimated at $5,000 plus $7,000 for Hydro, water and sewer. “We are between a rock and a hard place,” Angelo said. “We have to start the process now.” Jim Harrison asked why the club was turned down for the grant. Angelo said it was in the wrong category. He noted it will be located near the Splash Pad and will be available for anyone in the park. Williams asked if it would be open all the time and how they would manage security. Angelo said it would be open only during the day in a time block such as open at 7 a.m. and closed at 10 p.m. Williams commented, “In Frankford there were some issues. People made a mess.” Angelo said the design is still to be sorted out with the soccer club.

Royal Canadian Legions across the country donate to memorial By Kate Everson

EMC News - Quinte West - A total of $160,886.46 was presented to Mayor John Williams for the Afghanistan Repatriation Memorial Fund from Legion branches across the country. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are renewing our pledge to the 158 men and women who died in Afghanistan,â&#x20AC;? said MC Ena Newman. Dominion President of the Royal Canadian Legion Gordon Moore presented the cheque at the Legion on April 12. A presentation had been planned at Bain Park but the ice storm was responsible for a quick change in plans. Gordon Moore said the Legion donations were collected from 1,400 Legion branches across the country as an example of their support. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had a fantastic response,â&#x20AC;? he said. Mayor John Williams said the initiative for the memorial was started two and a half years ago because they felt it was important to have a place to honour the fallen at the start of the Highway of Heroes. The mayor applauded the Legion for what it does every day for the community and the country. Hugh Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Neil, who came up with the idea for the memorial, said the site is a beautiful place for families to come. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Soon the bay will be clear, the grass will grow and the ďŹ&#x201A;owers sprout,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a beautiful monument. It lists all the names of our war heroes. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the best thing weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever done.â&#x20AC;? There was a separate $1,000 presented by Everett Red MacLean from Legion Branch 110 to Gordon Moore for the Dominion Command. Please see â&#x20AC;&#x153;Warâ&#x20AC;? on page B3

War diaries will go to War Museum

Continued from page B1

Colonel Sean Friday said he participated in the mission in Afghanistan in 2008 and “too many ramp ceremonies” there and here. The base was responsible for helping the families receive their loved ones with a great deal of care. “The whole country is behind the memorial,” he said. “When families come back here to the site I see by the look on their faces a real uplifting.” Renay Groves presented war diaries to Gordon Moore and Sean Friday, saying it is a notebook for soldiers to carry on their missions. Some will end up in the Canadian War Museum. She said two captains from her regiment were killed on the same day. She noted that one person here, Sergeant Greg Huizinga, from Belleville, is a local hero who was in Afghanistan. Huizinga said he used to ref soccer in Bain Park and is glad the memorial is somewhere people can see it. “It’s a great spot,” he said. Moore presented two Diamond Jubilee Medals to Howie Bonter and Gary Newman.

Big lineup for Big Music Fest By Steve Jessel

EMC Entertainment - Belleville - The Big Music Fest will be once again taking the stage at Zwicks Park in Belleville this summer, as the festival lineup was announced early last week by organizers. Hedley, Counting Crows, The Wallflowers, Bleeker Ridge and Canadian music icon and

original Guess Who singer Burton Cummings and his band will all make an appearance at this year’s edition, which takes place on June 22. “We’re thrilled, we’re ready to go and we’re looking forward to it,” said Big Music Fest site manager David Joyce. “It’s a great way to kick off the summer.”


“It fills the hotels, it fills the parks, it fills all the other venues in town.” After last year’s Big Music Fest catered to a slightly younger audience, Joyce said he’s confident the acts this year will have a broader appeal. An estimated 10,000 people are expected at the festival this year, but with Zwicks Park capable of holding up to 15,000, Joyce said that number could be even more with fans coming from as far as Montreal, Toronto and the U.S. “It fills the hotels, it fills the parks, it fills all the other venues in town,” Joyce said. “It’s a good draw for Belleville, and trust me, it puts us on the map, in terms of music phenomenon.” Ryan Williams, president of the Bay of Quinte Tourist Council estimated that the event injects over a million dollars into the community each year, and said that there are only two or three other events throughout the year that have that sort of impact in terms of tourism. “It’s becoming more prevalent that we’re getting these great music festivals ... we are becoming known for that,” Williams said. “Anytime we can get this calibre of festival back to Belleville, it says a lot about the community and the Bay of Quinte region.” Gates for the festival open at noon on June 22, with entertainment beginning at roughly 1:30 p.m. The event is fully licensed with a designated drinking area, and a large number of security staff and police on hand. There will also be a number of vendors offering a range of services. The festival runs until roughly midnight, however, a ticket allows festival goers to come and go as they please. Tickets are now on sale at Best Western Hotel in Belleville, or online at <>.

Stories that sing the theme at Westben By Sue Dickens

EMC Entertainment - Campbellford - The 14th season at Westben is filled with new ideas, new shows and new performers, local and international. The theme for this season is “stories that sing,” said Donna Bennett, cofounder and advancement and marketing director for Westben Arts Festival Theatre. “Every concert has a story behind it,” she added. From its season opener Requiem for a Millennium composed by Westben’s co-founder and artistic director Brian Please see “Season” on page B5

She commented at the end of the day, which concluded with a potluck dinner and a chance to warm up at St. Andrew’s United Church, “As this is our second year, we are indeed hoping to make this a long standing annual event. It is a very different style of show putting breed function as the main focus. Often we hear of purebred breeds that have gone to such a focus on show ring wins that the breed purpose and health aren’t priorities. Exhibitors today all share a main goal: to ensure the Siberian husky remains a working dog.”

Trenton Junction not just another whistle stop

By Kate Everson

EMC News - Trenton - The restored Trenton Junction VIA station is another success story. Train enthusiast Errick Camolese told council Monday night that more passengers are now using the facility.

We had 8,800 passengers use the junction last year, up eleven per cent over the previous year.”

“This is our eleventh year of service since the restoration,” he said. “We had 8,800 passengers use the junction last year, up eleven per cent over the previous year.” Since the restoration a total of 67,000 passengers have used the station, an average of 160 a week. “This is a continued success,” he said. “We have Toronto bound and a round trip to Ottawa. Continued usage would revive more, especially moving from Toronto east to Montreal. There is a real gap in service.” Mayor John Williams thanked Camolese for his update and continued support of the junction. Terry Cassidy encouraged staff to get VIA to extend services to an expanded schedule. “We need extra service,” he said.

Westben’s season to sing stories Continued from page B4

Finley, which was held recently in Cobourg and then Norwood, to its finale fund raiser, the lineup for 2013 “presents the full gamut of storytelling right from the spoken word to wordless music,” said Finley. “We like to take Westben out into the community to expand our audience reach,” noted Bennett. In June the Festival “celebrates the community even more,” with its annual Campbellford District High School music night featuring its jazz ensembles on June 8. “Book of Broadway on June 9 will showcase Westben’s youth and teen choruses. “The new chorus features girls from the youth choir and guys whose voices have changed,” Bennett said. “It means we can sing in four-part harmony, bass, tenor, alto and soprano. The boys are having a great time,” she added, with excitement. The boys and girls range in age from 14 to 18 years. The show is a musical storybook, in keeping with the season’s theme, featuring favourite Broadway moments from The Jungle Book and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat. Still promoting its “stories that sing” Westben will be presenting Peter & the Wolf on June 16 narrated by the festival’s own Teresa Castonguay.

Well-known and highly respected retired music teacher Nancy Elmhirst will guide the newly formed Westben Wind Ensemble in its public debut, another first for the Festival. “The big thing about that concert is it’s a show for kids of all ages. We haven’t done this for a few years and it sits well with our theme of stories that sing,” said Bennett, who pointed out that June has always been community month for the Festival.

“We like to take Westben out into the community to expand our audience reach.” Something new this season will see Westben hosting a premiere event Bennett refers to as its “Rule Britannia Weekend,” which begins with “Irish Pub Night” on July 12 featuring The Dardanelles, followed by “Burns to Brigadoon” on July 13 then “England to a Tea: This Sceptred Isle” on July 14 . “It’s a themed weekend,” said Bennett. Keeping its sense of community centrestage Westben will present “Words & Notes” on July 16 featuring two local authors, Judy Fong-Bates and Martha Schabas. “Explore stories of home and home away from home as Judy and Martha read from their work and Brian performs Preludes from Rachmaninoff and from his own collection of evocative piano solos Preludes to Canada,” she explained. The theatre’s finale fund raiser is called “Viva Italia.” And the performances at Westben don’t really end there. Christmas at Westben this year is being held November 23, 30 and December 1 and it is called Little Match Girl Messiah. “All in all I think it’s a very uplifting and varied season. Really exciting,” Bennett concluded. For tickets or more information call the Westben office, 87 Bridge Street East, Campbellford, 705-653-5508. For more information go to <>.

One of the events held in conjunction with the April 13 Siberian Husky Sled Dog Showcase, was a class for veteran dogs over the age of ten. Shown are the winners, starting with Richard Block of New Hampshire with his dog Newt who placed first; Tammi McNamara and Fargo from Kentbridge in second; followed by Caroline Morin from Quebec, whose dog, Winter Festival, placed third; and Laurel Turansky who travelled from Bracebridge with her dog Keo who was fourth in the division.

EMC News - Marmora - The second annual Siberian Husky Sled Dog Showcase took place at the fairgrounds in spite of very unsettled weather following the recent ice storm. On April 13, husky owners from Ontario, Quebec, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Vermont, arrived in town with a total of 51 dogs, all eager to participate, working valiantly through rain and generally miserable conditions. Put on by the Siberian Husky Club of Canada, the day-long event saw the working sled dogs evaluated in a total of seven classes with a panel of three judges looking at body structure, gait, temperament, conditioning and overall impression. Prizes in each of the categories included the traditional ribbons along with dog food and sled dog equipment. Laddy, a two-year-old dog from Douglas, Ontario, was named this year’s Best in Show.

On Hollywood, love, and marriage

Sheila Wray Gregoire EMC Lifestyles - I love a good chick flick. Sure, I’ll watch Band of Brothers or Die Hard with my husband, but when he cuddles up and sits through Pride and Prejudice, I melt. Unfortunately finding a decent movie

is often an exercise in futility. Most new releases gross me out. There’s too much horror or blood, and throw in a zombie or two and it’s supposed to be a blockbuster. Nevertheless, dig deep and you’ll find some gems. And increasingly lately I’ve been discovering that gems in the chick flick genre have less to do with falling in love and more to do with keeping a marriage strong. Hollywood does marriage better than it does dating. Take the movie Crazy, Stupid, Love, which I thought I’d detest for the first 45 minutes, because it revolves around a younger, cooler guy (Ryan Gosling) teaching an older, just dumped guy (Steve Carell) how to attract multiple women. It seemed so shallow. But the ending is supremely satisfying (and comes with a twist we never saw coming). Both Gosling’s character and Carell’s ex-wife realize that commit-

The Good Earth: EMC Lifestyles - My friend, Doug Green, posted a picture on his web site of an ice-encased shrub and he waxed ever so eloquently about the beauty of Mother Nature. My wife posted a picture of our three-stem birch clump also enveloped by ice. It was no longer beautiful; it was lying down on the ground. Yesterday I sawed off the ragged stumps. I also took the time to clean up the 40foot piece of a Siberian elm which had pulled away from its main trunk and landed smack on top of our 30-year-old Bosc pear tree. I sawed up the latter one, too. Doug was right to remark on the beauty of it all but perspective is everything, right? There is a line in the Dave Gunning song “We’re All Leaving” that also comments on the “beauty of it all” as a person is pulled under the surface of the ocean by a rip tide. O&S#2 Alison Davies I have just finished reading Alison’s column, “More About Life,” detailing her experiences planting a cedar hedge. I didn’t laugh but I did smile. I don’t think there’s a gardener on the planet who hasn’t done an “oopsy.” The neat thing about plants, including cedars, is that they are very forgiving and will do their utmost to survive our best intentions.

intentional approach, why do they portray love as something over which we have no control? A couple is thrown together and they “fall in love.” They complete each other. And these feelings alone should make them want to marry. Most of my professional life revolves around marriage, as I blog and write books and speak. In the mountains of emails from desperate women I receive every week, one of the most common themes I see is this: My now-husband cheated on me while we were engaged, but we got married anyway. Recently I caught him having an affair. Or: My husband lived with his parents until we moved in together, and now we’re married. I hold down two jobs, and he barely works part-time. But he refuses to do any housework. Reading these I find myself so frustrated, because the warning signs were there. Why would you marry a total

couch potato? Why marry a lying cheater? Because you love him, of course! And love will magically transform him. We can’t ignore those feelings, right? Except that scientists say those feelings last, at most, eighteen months. And then you hit that rut and you’re in trouble. In dating romances, Hollywood gives us this idea that it’s feelings that sustain a marriage, not the character of the two people involved. Yet if all your friends and family think he’s a lout or are sure she’s flighty, you should likely listen to that, no matter what you’re feeling. Maybe we need to start applying the same principles to dating as we do to marriage. It’s character that counts, not just feelings. That’s a lesson Jane Austen tried to teach us long ago, and perhaps we could all do with a little more Austen and a little less Zombie.

O&S#1 Ice storm

over 25 years ago, JoAnne Halloran left us with some wonderful gardens … with one exception. Along the east fence row the bridal veil spirea hedge was infested with a truly ugly weed. If dandelions chowed down on steroids and became uberthugs, they would look the same. I worked at pulling those things out for years with little success. One day, I saw a heritage house with the same problem. A few days later, as I passed the same house, I saw the most marvellous bed of oriental poppies! Oopsy. O&S#3 Smart plants Last week, when I wrote about magnolia scale, I mentioned that the buds were about to open. Since I wrote that piece, the temperatures plummeted and the ice storm came and buds have still not opened. Many of our daffodils, tulips, hyacinth and spring ephemerals have poked their tips above ground. They did this almost two weeks ago; they haven’t opened up either. A few snow drops and even a couple of crocus have shown a colourful flower but that’s it. You know something, Gentle Reader? Until I see all of those bulbs blooming, I’m not going to even think about winter being gone. O&S#4 Toucan is returned! A few weeks ago we reported that our

Karin Wells

ment and stability are actually far sexier than living an empty life, a lesson that Carell knew all along. Or take Hope Springs and Date Night, two movies portraying married couples who have fallen into a rut. The reality of the way the couples relate to each other is just too perfect, and the central message, that commitment matters, and that having someone to walk through life with matters, is beautiful. In fact, most movies that focus on marriage, from It’s Complicated to Couples Retreat to Shall We Dance say the same thing: those flighty feelings of infatuation eventually fade, and life settles into a routine. Will you then commit and keep working at your marriage, or will you drift and lose one of the greatest potential sources of happiness in your life? Yet if Hollywood believes the best marriages are those between two people who are committed to work at it, a very

young cat, Toucan, had stepped outside one evening and did not return. We did everything we could to find her, including disturbing a few neighbours when they saw me prowling their backyards and under their decks. We received several phone calls and each time we checked out the cat, we were disappointed to find a feline with similar characteristics but not “Tewks.” We were hoping someone had found her wandering and had taken her in. Frankly, we had given up. We received a phone call from a young lady who believed they had found her. We were dubious because these folks lived on the other side of the river, several miles from us. But … they said they read the vet’s phone number on her tags and, when they called up

Hillcrest Animal Hospital (thanks Hillcrest) they were given our phone number. We checked out the call and, sure enough, it was Tewks. So thanks are extended to the young lady for making the call, thanks to her dad who managed to feed Tewks, and thanks to Providence for getting our cat back to us. Tewks was so relieved to be back she willingly submitted to a tongue-bath from Sox, who was equally happy. O&S#5 Corn gluten and seeding You have an opportunity, once the ground has dried up sufficiently and the soil temperatures are cool, to overseed your lawn. If we don’t experience an exceptionally cool and wet spring, the seed should have ample time to germinate before the warmer season weeds show up. Remember that many of the weeds

Dan Clost you will see now, such as dandelions, are second year offerings and not this year’s new crop. Once you have mowed the new grass once, you can safely apply corn gluten as both a fertilizer and a weed suppressant.

Is fluoride in your drinking water healthy? By Kate Everson

EMC News - Quinte West - Water fluoridation remains a contentious issue in many municipalities in Canada. The great debate continued at council on Monday night with a report brought forward by director of Public Works Chris Angelo. “Is the whole city fluoridated?” Keeper; asked Councillor Paul Kyte. R0012035949

Reality Check

Angelo said only Bayside water is fluoridated. Trenton and Frankford and Batawa are not. “You can smell it in the water,” Kyte said. “I don’t like it.” Angelo said Bayside water was fluoridated after residents in South Sidney voted to have it added to the Bayside water treatment plant in 1995. It was a question on the ballot. “If council is looking at removing it you would need public input,” Angelo

said. Ron Hamilton said residents wanted it at the time the plant was built. “It helps children’s teeth,” he said. Mayor John Williams said it is a democratic process to include what the people want. Leslie Roseblade added, “There is a lot of proven information that it is a good thing and would benefit all the community.” Ron Hamilton said they discussed it at the Health Unit. “They would like to see it stay,” he said. Don Kuntze noted it is municipal water only that is fluoridated and many people are on wells. Terry Cassidy said the information in this report is positive but there are other sides that are not highlighted. “Others have the opposite point of view,” he said. “We need to revisit all the plants and have a public meeting, a plebiscite on this issue. We need to keep our minds open.” Paul Kyte noted that cities like Kitchener and Windsor have decided to remove fluoridation because of other negative effects.

Ukulele master offers music lesson at Madoc schools By Richard Turtle

classroom on a regular basis. Though, he admits, the frequency of his school trips are suffering at the expense of other musical commitments. “I used to do it more,” he says of class visits, “but I’m a lot busier now. I still try to [offer classroom workshops and school concerts] as often as I can.” Madoc Public School teacher Jen Curtis says the students are easily inspired by Hill’s talent as they can see just what the ukulele can do. And Hill says while it’s not always simple, it is possible to play anything on the uke, adding he at times joins forces with a cellist to perform. Following the instructional section of his workshop, Hill was encouraged by the students to play a video game theme from Mario Brothers but he admits owing to his inability to master the game, he only knows the first verse. And that, he says, was no simple tune to learn. Following the classroom session, Hill performed a concert for the school including original selections from his recordings.


EMC News - Madoc - Students at two area schools were treated to an impressive display of some serious musicianship last week when James Hill arrived with his humble ukulele. Hill, a talented professional musician who has crossed the country performing and teaching, has been dubbed the “Wayne Gretzky of the Ukulele” by CBC Radio host Stuart McLean and his presentation for local students was as engaging as a Stanley Cup final. After visiting Madoc Public School last Wednesday morning, Hill continued on to Madoc Township Public School for a late morning lesson there followed by an early afternoon concert. And, says Madoc Township music teacher Deb Chatreau, students there have been privileged in recent years as his visit marked his return engagement since the school’s instrumental music program was launched. “He visited MTPS three years ago to kick off our ukulele program and we are thrilled to have him back again,” she says. Now with a school collection of about 50 instruments, available to students on loan, Chatreau says the program is a very popular one and Hill’s performances have been a definite highlight for both students and teachers. Blue Skies in the Community, she adds, have been extremely supportive of the program, offering funding for the instruments. In the classroom, the singer/songwriter who has released several CDs of his own compositions led students through the basics of the instrument while showing off its versatility and his own love of music. Music teachers, along with school board arts co-ordinator Susan Davies, were also on hand, playing along with the rest of the students and equally engrossed in the experience. In the classroom or not, music can be infectious. And Hill is quick to admit his affair with the uke began as an eight-year-old in British Columbia with a mandatory music program. In the ensuing years Hill has gone on to become a worldrenowned musician but he still reflects on those early days and returns to the

EMC Entertainment - Belleville Belleville’s world-famous Quinte Ballet School will be front and centre in celebrating International Dance Day on Monday, April 29. The school will hold an open house with free instruction in simple dance routines staring at 6 p.m. Ballet school instructor Kareem Byfield will teach participants the basic moves of a dance that can be done after outside, weather permitting, as a “flashmob” event. Ballet school officials said the movements for the mass dance will be “fun and easy.” The school will serve cake and coffee following the dance while Quinte Ballet School Artistic Director Cathy Taylor will read the “official global message,” a Dance Day tradition since 1982 when the day was founded by the International Theatre Institute as a memorial to JeanGeorges Noverre (1727-1810) recognized as the creator of modern ballet. A key member of the Quinte area’s cultural community, the Quinte Ballet School has been serving students from the area, across Canada and abroad for

Holland’s historic windmills are best viewed at Kinderdijk

Rotterdam’s landmark Erasmus Bridge), to Kinderdijk. I boarded the Nehalennia in Rotterdam, and I then cruised along this city’s picturesque waterfront, before continuing the excursion to Kinderdijk about an hour’s journey away. I then had just over an hour to explore this Heritage Site on my own before returning to the boat and making the return trip to Rotterdam; the entire excursion takes about three and a-half hours. The round trip costs 14 EUR for an adult, and reservations are recommended. The boat leaves from Rotterdam at 10:45 a.m. and 2:15 p.m. daily (except Mondays) from April to October. Once I arrived at Kinderdijk, I walked along a footpath on a dike, between two canals, for an up close and personal look at these old structures; there was also a separate cycling path. I discovered that eight of the windmills (built in 1738) were made of stone/brick, eight (built in 1740) were thatched-roofed wooden structures, two were built of stone a I take a cruise on the Nehalennia from Rotterdam to Kinderdijk. bit later (1760), and one (the oldest of By John M.

There’s a kind of serene beauty found in Kinderdijk among this network of historic windmills and I was pleased that these were not replicas or museum exhibits. Rather, they are the “real” thing—in their original location—and this is the best place in all of the country to see old working windmills and the only place to see such a large concentration of them. Therefore, Kinderdijk is a very popular tourist attraction but, unlike so many other destinations, this one is not expensive to visit. In fact, admittance is free—and it can be visited at any time. However, it’s best to come on a summer weekend, when all the mills are working (if sufficient wind is blowing). The boat cruise to Kinderdijk makes for a very nice half-day tour from Rotterdam, but it’s also accessible via car, bus, and bicycle. While visiting Kinderdijk, you can walk the footpath, rent a bicycle, or take a canal cruise. If you’re visiting there in early September, you can even witness the windmills all lit up at night, when the special “Mills in Floodlight” event takes place. For more information <>; <>.

large paddle-wheels, which scooped up the water, and I was told that as the sails became worn, they needed repairs. When a hole was found in one of these large sails, it would be patched. However, when there were a lot of holes found, the sail would ultimately be replaced, and the old sail would then be used in the making of children’s clothes. The collection of 19 historic windmills at Kinderdijk is quite a sight, especially when the wind is gusting and they’re in full spin, with those massive sails coming so close to the ground. Most of these well-preserved mills, nestled along a network of canals, are privately owned and inhabited. However, one is kept open for the tourists; the “Bezoekmolen” (Visitor’s Mill) and here I was able to look inside a fully operational windmill, preserved in its original form, and the miller was even available to answer questions. There’s a fee to visit this particular windmill, but it’s included with the cost of the boat cruise.

EMC News - Belleville - Just under 100 people gathered outside MP Daryl Kramp’s offices on Tuesday, April 9, to protest the spread and sale of genetically modified (GM) alfalfa in Ontario, and in talking to protestors it was clear that those involved were legitimately frightened about the potential repercussions of such an action. “We’re petrified,” said National Farmers Union local chapter 334 president John Della Bosca. “The inevitable contamination of all the people that grow alfalfa, whether you want to or not, it will happen.” Organized in part by the National Farmers Union (NFU), the protest joined dozens of others taking place across Canada and Ontario. While GM alfalfa was approved for Canada in 2005, no variety has so far been approved for commercial release, but that could change soon. NFU member John Wilson said there’s a very real possibility that GM alfalfa is approved in Ontario as soon as this spring, which is why they felt a demonstration was their best course of action. “The problem is that we’re all part of this enormous genetic modification experiment, where nobody knows where it’s going to lead and what’s going to happen,” Wilson said. “What we do know, is that genetically modified alfalfa, because it is a plant that grows just about everywhere, will cross pollinate with other wild alfalfa and eventually it will even get into organic alfalfa crops.” Aside from health concerns, Wilson said this will have an adverse affect on alfalfa farmers who choose not to use GM alfalfa, as once the new strain cross pollinates with organic crops local farmers will no longer be able to market themselves as “GMO free.” “There’s no taking it back … once you have [GM] alfalfa out there it will

because people don’t necessarily know what GM means. We want people to become more and more aware that our food supply is being tampered with.” Not everyone at the protest was a member of the NFU. Along with representatives from the slow food movement and other local farmers, Nadine Bertelsen from Madoc described herself as an ordinary person, and said that a large part of the protest was simply spreading the awareness of what GMOs are. “We eat this food, our children eat this food … we don’t know what it’s doing to us; it’s very frightening,” she said. “If we don’t take a stand somewhere it’s just going to happen, and I feel like I want to be part of a solution.”

spread; it will cross pollinate, and it will change everything as we know it as far as alfalfa goes,” Wilson said. “We wanted to let Mr. Kramp know that not all farmers are for this, and many of us are against it.” As part of the demonstration, the protest delivered a letter to Kramp’s office detailing their concerns about the spread of GMO’s into Ontario. Della Bosca said the protest wasn’t just about farmers, but also about future generations of Canadians. “It’s a serious concern for not necessarily me, but my children, grandchildren, because there are things that are linked to genetic modification that really get swept under the carpet,” Della Bosca said. “We want the message to go out to the population

EMC News - Northumberland Canned goods, packaged products and other food items will not be the only things available for people using local food banks this spring. The Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge (HKPR) District Health Unit is reaching out to food bank clients in Cobourg, Port Hope, Hastings, Campbellford, Warkworth, Bewdley and Brighton, stated a press release. During “Oral Health Month” in April and over the ensuing weeks, health unit staff will be visiting local food banks to distribute toothbrushes, dental floss and other oral health resources. Special efforts will also be made to share information with local families about financial-support programs that can offset the costs of dental treatment. One of these is the Healthy Smiles Ontario program, which can cover the costs of preventive and early dental treatment for children and teens up to age of 17 years. “Our goal is to talk up the importance of good oral health and provide information about Health Unit programs and services that may be able to benefit local residents,” says Anna Rusak, an oral health promoter with the HKPR District Health Unit. To date, local food bank opera-

tors have been very supportive of the health unit’s outreach. According to Rusak, making connections with people through area food banks is also beneficial for the Health Unit. “Frequently, people only call us when there is an emergency,” Rusak notes. “We’re hoping that through this initiative, we can reach more people before there is a problem by providing them with information about preventive dental services and programs.” In addition to Healthy Smiles Ontario, the health unit also administers two other dental support programs: the Children in Need of Treatment program and the Ontario Works Dental Program. Between the various financial-support programs, hundreds of thousands of dollars are available each year to help local families cover the costs of urgent and preventive dental care. According to a recent Public Health Ontario report, among Ontarians who did not visit a dentist in the past three years, one in five people cited cost as a barrier. For more information about oral health and financial-support programs, local residents are encouraged to call the Health Unit toll-free at 1-866-8884577.

Terry Sprague attracts a big audience

on his own. The talk he gave in Tweed was a program he put together at the request of the Prince Edward Stewardship Council who happen to have their office located just north of Tweed. “We felt there was so much natural heritage in Prince Edward County that people were taking for granted we wanted to put together a presentation about the county. We are all somewhat guilty of taking the natural beauty around us for granted; we wanted to point out some of the special things like the sand banks, the natural features and some of the history.” Terry’s slide show and presentation gave the audience a 360-degree view of Prince Edward County complete with geological detail of the formation of the land, the type of plant and insect life, how the sand banks were formed and the history of days when the trees were removed and the sand banks shifted and began burying houses and large plots of fertile land. He had stories of the barley days and rum running and at the end he talked about the South Shore and the importance of protecting the bird migration that takes place every year. After he was finished he had a question period and the subject of wind-generated electricity came up. He expressed real concerns about how this would affect the “… delicate natural biodiversity. The developers seem to think that you can simply take a shovel and move all the wild life but it is not that simple. Migration patterns in birds for example take hundreds of years to develop and they will fly into those windmills at night which is when they migrate.” Terry finished his talk with the following, “My message is to cherish these areas that you have in Tweed and protect and enjoy them because once we lose them, they are gone forever. If an opportunity comes along to purchase an area or somehow set it aside I say go for it! As our human population explodes it will be harder and harder to set these areas aside for future generations and it is important Terry Sprague visited Tweed and gave a very inspiring talk we preserve these natural gems for the future.” about the natural beauty of Prince Edward County.

EMC Lifestyles - Tweed - Terry Sprague came to Tweed and spoke at St. Andrew’s Church as the first of three guest speakers to a nearly sold-out house. He was invited by the Tweed Historical Society. Terry has written a column for the Tweed News for the last ten years and has written 48 years for the Picton Gazette. He also now has his own business called Nature Stuff Tours where he does guided hikes and private tours. “I started this line of work at Sandbanks Provincial Park where I was a guided hike leader and I fell in love with taking people out and telling things about the park; not only identifying things but explaining how certain flowers fit into the natural scheme of things and why they are there and how things tie in together.” Terry grew up on a farm on Big Island and still lives there. His first job was at Glenora Fisheries Research facility and after five years he was offered a position at Sandbanks as an Interpretive Naturalist after which he went to Quinte Conservation where he developed the guided tour program. When they pulled he continued the program
