EMC News - Quinte West - It was a marathon event. Or at least half a marathon. “We had 300 registered for the Healthy Half Marathon,” said organizer Colleen Vickers. “That’s over 100 more than last year.” Participants ran or walked a half marathon (21 kilometres) or ten or five kilometres or joined the mayor in a one-kilometre leisurely stroll along the waterfront. “If you get lost you might end up in Wellington,” Mayor John Williams warned. Karen White said she and the rest of the Trenton Memorial Hospital auxiliary might take a side trip for lunch in Carrying Place along the way. Karen brought her mascot Lucy, the friendly golden retriever who happily posed with a daffodil in her collar. It was all for a very good cause, the

Trenton Memorial Hospital Foundation. Executive director Wendy Warner was on hand taking registrations and lots of cash for needed hospital medical equipment. She said the trophy bedpan award would be handed out to the winning team in the Mayor’s Walk with eight teams walking for the prestigious trophy. Doctor Robert Iny was out there in his running shoes and shorts spurring on the crowd, and joining them in the half marathon, coming in over the finish line with triumph. But the winner of the half marathon was not even from Trenton. It was a Swiss import, Jeremy Maillefer, who won the gold medal for first place in one hour, 15 minutes. His friend Nicolas Sommer ran the ten-kilometre. Both are guests of the Trenton Rowing and Paddling Club, giving support to the new club. “I’m not a runner at home,” Jeremy said. “I’m a rower, on the national team of Switzerland. Rowing keeps me in shape.

But I’m a bit heavy for a runner.” There was a real assortment of runHe said he passed Nicolas on the road, ners out for the event, all ages, sizes and and they were racing each other. You shapes.

Open house an exciting day for downtown Frankford By Kate Everson

EMC News - Frankford - The official opening on April 26 of the new Frankford office and library was an exciting day for those who had worked so hard on the renovations. “This is a very exciting day for Quinte West, especially Frankford,” said Mayor John Williams. He said they had done a fantastic job on

the project. He added that the OPP have an office there as well. “That means slow down when you drive by,” he said with a laugh. The history of the building includes a silent movie house in 1918-1920, a grist mill in 1935, a church in 1960 and in 1970 the village of Frankford used it as a library and office with the basement used for various Please see “Open” on page 5

New industry possible for city By Jack Evans

EMC News - Belleville - A caucus session of Belleville City Council Thursday dealt with two property matters, including a prospective new industry for the city. Mayor Neil Ellis announced after that council has accepted an offer by a major United States-based industrial firm for a parcel of land on Lahr Drive in the

Northeast Industrial Park. The result, he added, could be up to 50 new jobs for the city, but further details remain cloaked in secrecy until the deal is final and the company chooses to go public. The land involved had originally been slated for a new, long-planned fire hall, leaving council with a challenge to find an alternative

site. Council had already decided in recent days, acting on the advice of its new acting fire chief that a better site for the new building should be found. It is expected that the sale of the industrial property will more than offset the cost of any purchase of new private lands for the fire hall, still scheduled to

be started this year. Fire and city staff will be looking at properties in the Cannifton Road area, closer to the city centre but still well-placed for protection of industrial properties and the city’s growing Thurlow ward. All such decisions must still be ratified in an open council meeting at some point, the mayor reminded.

OPP warn of flood scam EMC News - With the recent floods that have been occurring in central Ontario and the state of emergency declarations in a number of our communities, it has come to the attention of the OPP that there are some individuals who may be attempting to fraudulently benefit from this situation. Given these circumstances, the OPP is strongly urging anyone who may wish to support any fund-raising initiatives that may be under way or planned for the future, to make sure they visit the web sites of those communities that have been directly affected by the flood waters. These web sites will assist with identifying how and where donations can be officially directed so that they make it to their intended destination and not into the wrong hands.

Harrington Road realignment means shovels in the dirt By Kate Everson

This is the view from the top of the S-turn which will be straightened out by the end of June. Photo: Kate Everson

Carfield said they have to move a telephone pole and make a new driveway for an adjacent landowner as part of the work. The crews have already encountered a couple of unexpected surprises, including an underground spring and an active aviary full of bees. “I got stung last week,� Carfield said, looking at his arm. “And there was one buzzing around me today.�

Despite the enormous undertaking, locals will be grateful for the new straighter road when it is all done. “It has long been debated about improving this road,� Angelo said. “This will straighten it up, improve the grade and pave the surface.� Carfield said he has lived in this area for years and his only regret is he didn’t take a picture of the road before they started work.

groups such as Cub Scouts. “It’s never had a reconstruction like this,� he said. “It’s a beautiful setting on the river with the windows overlooking it. There is no better location. It’s better than Belleville’s!� Williams thanked Bob Wannamaker, chair of the library board, and the library fund-raising committee chaired by Lynda Reid and JoAnne White which raised over $120,000 for shelving and furnishings. Wannamaker gave a nod to former chair Craig Desjardins who got the ball rolling on renovations. He noted the first problem was looking for land for a new location, but the board decided to just renovate at the current site at 22 North Front Street. “The people of Frankford should be proud,� Wannamaker said. He also thanked Rita Turtle for helping choose the colours and decorations for the new library. Rita Turtle, CEO Quinte West library, said it was a united staff effort who worked together with the volunteers. She also thanked the donors who opened their hearts and wallets. “Libraries are used more now than ever,� she added. “There are 29 million visits to libraries in Ontario every year.

EMC News - Quinte West - That long and winding road is about to become a lot straighter. “We’re going to straighten it up,� says Chris Angelo, director of Public Works. “Harrington Road should be finished by the end of June.� The project to straighten the steep S-turn on the road began April 15 and the road is closed at mid-point. Construction crews from Donaldson Excavating in Wooler and Cooney Construction in Trenton are doing the work. Huge backhoes and dump trucks are on site moving the dirt every day. “We’re going down 17 feet,� said site foreman Bill Carfield. “We’ve moving around 200,000 yards of soil.� Angelo said the project includes improving the grade of the steep hill then paving the surface. The $600,000 deal included six to eight months of negotiations with landowners and couple of realignment options to satisfy everyone. One road that was started as an option several months ago now just leads to a dead end. The road goes nowhere. One owner did not agree with that route and the whole plan had to be changed. “It’s a lot of work,� Angelo said.

Quinte West EMC - Thursday, May 2, 2013 5


Trying to fathom ideological bias Dear Editor, A letter to the editor last week promoted the Conservative position, pushing an affordable energy act. The objective of the act, lost on second reading, was to give more power to municipalities, allowing them to control what energy projects (principally wind turbines) they would allow within their jurisdiction. It also stuck in a provision protecting the Niagara Escarpment and the Oak Ridges Moraine from wind turbines. The bulk of the letter by Rolly Ethier (Trying to fathom green energy initiative, April 18, 2013, page 7) concerns wind turbines. The whole issue of the value of turbines is complex, but Ethier’s contention that turbines are an “economic catastrophe� and a government “scam� is hyperbole. I should mention that I fit Ethier’s description of a person who has what he calls “left wing environmental bias,� which he contrasts with “common sense.�

Turbines are undoubtedly expensive. Perhaps not as expensive as nuclear energy, but expensive. Some say they also damage the health of nearby residents. A 2010 report by Ontario’s Chief Medical Officer of Health, called The Potential Health Impact of Wind Turbines, concludes that while people living near turbines may experience dizziness, nausea, and sleep disturbance, “the scientific evidence available to date does not demonstrate a direct causal link between wind turbine noise and adverse health effects.� Other studies refute this claim. The number of conflicting studies out there makes the issue confusing to say the least. Read material by the proponents of wind power and—hey, presto—no health concerns. Read studies from those that reject wind turbines and you’ll find lots of evidence for serious health concerns. Ethier picks on Denmark and their purportedly “crumbling� offshore wind turbines. He says, “the Danes have the

most expensive electricity costs in Europe.� The offshore wind turbines indeed have foundation problems. Growing pains of a new industry? Unsolvable problems endemic to offshore turbines? The answer depends upon what you read and how you imagine we plan for long-term energy. Read a report by the Washington-based Institute for Energy Research, for example. It absolutely damns the Danish turbine initiative. The institute promotes non-governmental energy sources controlled by market forces. That includes, for example, the Keystone XL pipeline. Canadian oil, as our federal government boasts, is run by private interests, unlike the mixed system in Denmark that returns much of their huge oil profits to the people; the institute likes this arrangement. At the other end of the spectrum, there are credible reports refuting the Danish critics. Taking various conditions into account, [they] say these reports claim Danish energy costs are not the highest

in Europe. A Danish institution, Coherent Energy and Environmental System Analysis, published a report claiming the more right-wing studies fail to understand how international energy markets function. Assessing the damage alternatives like coal-fired or nuclear energy plants impose on the planet is not an easy matter. If we pay more directly for wind power, do we pay more indirectly for the damage created by coal-fired plants? By nuclear plants? I have my suspicions, but I don’t really know—and the experts are having lively ongoing discussions about that too. The Ontario Federation of Agriculture, says Ethier, has “condemned the installation of turbines.� That’s not accurate. They are seriously concerned about their effect on rural Ontario, would like to see more municipal control and have some pretty austere requirements if turbines are installed – but they don’t condemn. That’s rhetoric. Ethier’s letter contains more vit-

riol than considered discussion on the value (economic and environmentally) of turbines. Of course, that’s a predictable thing for me to say: I’m a biased environmental lefty. And Ethier’s a ‌ well, you can figure out his ideological position. Bottom line: beware of simplistic letters to the editor, especially those that take an ideological position, then debunk their opponents with questionable stats, generating a bit of unwanted hot air energy in the process. (And yes, dear reader, I’m aware of the possible self-referential aspects of that last statement.) I’m not a Liberal, but last year the Liberals began a process that returns some of the autonomy to municipalities re: wind power projects in their area. A scam? A smokescreen? Too little too late? A government responding to rural concerns? Depends which flag you fly. Sincerely, Peter R. Snell, Tweed

Attack ads; it’s money not well spent Dear Editor, leader, but because they are doing it at the expense of entire I’ve been receiving regular nasty grams from the Harper Government attacking segments of the Canadian mosaic, be they teachers, Muslims Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau, which I assume are meant to inflame the Conserva- or the current enemy du jour causing many to pay a hefty tive base. However, their approach seems to be scattershot in that it seems to be price for the actions of a few. I want my tax dollars spent on going to Canadians of every political stripe. I even heard from a Liberal friend worthwhile projects that bring us together not push us apart. living in Paris, France, that he’s been receiving them too. The fact they are using The Harper government can pass all the laws they want my tax dollars to insult my intelligence is getting really annoying. (But then again to put an end to bullying, but the best way to prevent it is by spending $55 million in the first quarter of this year advertising a program that ended more than two years ago seems like nothing short of insanity too, but that’s just me.)This government went to great pains to express their ire with Mr. Trudeau for stating that it’s appropriate to find the root cause of terrorist incidents in order to prevent them from happening in the first place. What pray tell is wrong with that and why if you deem it to be such a bad idea, has our government invested $10   million to do just that. We used to be a country of co-operation and compromise, but under the current government we are becoming a country of fear mongering and acrimony because of the dissemination of half-truths and outright lies. The Harper government EMC News - At its recent board meeting, the directors of has spent a good part of its mandate pitting Canadian against Canadian, religion Trenval Business Development Corporation announced the against religion, province against province, employed against unemployed, and appointment of Glenn Kozak as its new executive director. “We are very pleased to make this announcement,� said using our tax dollars to do it. That’s wrong on so many levels it’s breathtaking. I’m not only angry because they are slandering a man I believe will be a great Carl Swan, chairman of the selection committee. “Glenn’s experience and track record as a board director [most recently as its chairman], and as a successful entrepreneur suit him very well to advance Trenval’s mission of supporting and creating jobs in the Belleville, Quinte West, Stirling-Rawdon, Deseronto, and Tyendinaga region.� Mr. Kozak replaces retiring Bruce Davis, who has served as executive director for the past three-and-half years. “The board appreciates the hard work and dedication that Bruce has put into elevating the Trenval brand during his tenure. We wish him the very best in his retirement,� said Mr. Swan. Trenval is a Community Futures Development Corporation that has served the Quinte communities since 1987. Its

It’s time to decide once and for all what kind of country we want to be versus the kind of country we are becoming. Our government has it in their power to change that. I have little hope that they will. Denyse Mouck, Stirling

Belleville police report EMC News - The Belleville Police Service responded to a disturbance at a downtown bar at approximately 6 p.m. April 27. After a brief investigation two brothers were arrested for being intoxicated in a public place. The brothers spent a few hours in custody and were later released with a provincial offence notice. In the early morning hours police responded to a disturbance around the area of Bridge Street East and Church Street. Two males in their early twenties were arrested for public intoxication. After further investigation, one of the males was found to be in possession of a small bag of marijuana. The male was charged with possession a controlled substance and later released on a promise to appear with a court date in late May. The other male was found to be in possession a prohibited weapon, brass knuckles. He was charged with weapons offences and released to a court date in late May.

Chemical fantasies and grim realities

EMC Editorial - First of all, dismiss all those news stories saying that the Assad regime has started using chemical weapons against its own citizens, and that this has crossed a “red line” and will trigger foreign military intervention in Syria. It is conceivable, though highly unlikely, that Assad’s troops have used Gwynne Dyer poison gas against the rebels. It is not credible that any foreign leader is going to order his troops to go into Syria and stop the war. The “evidence” for the Assad regime’s use of sarin (nerve gas) is flimsy, and it’s easy to see why the opposition fighters might choose to fabricate it. Equally flimsy evidence about alleged “weapons of mass destruction” was used to justify the American invasion of Iraq. Why wouldn’t the Syrian rebels have a go at the same game? Moreover, there is no plausible reason why the Syrian regime would use poison gas. It would confer no lasting military advantage on the government forces, and the political costs of being caught doing it would be significant. But even if the accusations were true, it would make no real difference. President Bashar al-Assad’s Russian and Chinese supporters would be embarrassed, but they would not drop their vetoes at the UN Security Council and authorise foreign military intervention in Syria. And even if they did authorise it, there would be no volunteers for the job. No Western government–nor any Arab government, either–is willing to put soldiers on the ground in Syria. Meddling in a civil war is rarely a good idea, and the Baathist regime’s army could inflict very serious losses on an invader. Even imposing a no-fly zone would mean Western pilots dead or downed, because Syria’s air defences are modern, competent and extensive. U.S. President Barack Obama may talk sternly about how the use of poison gas by the Syrian regime would be a “gamechanger”–but he doesn’t specify just how the game would change. He also spends much more time talking about how shaky the evidence is, because he has no idea what he would actually do if it were true. The one thing we can be sure of is that he would never send American troops in. So if there is not going to be any foreign military intervention, when is the Syrian civil war going to end? Not any time soon. From time to time the rebels overrun an air base here or a frontier post there. This is usually reported as proof that they

are making progress, but half the time they lose their conquests back to the regime some weeks or months later. The front lines have scarcely shifted at all in Aleppo in the past six months, and the regime is even recapturing some of the Damascus suburbs that fell to the rebels last year. The Syrian army lacks the numbers to hold down large tracts of countryside permanently, but it has never let the rebels close the main north-south freeway that links Damascus, Homs, Hama and Aleppo. Assad’s divisions even re-opened the highway linking Damascus to Tartus and Latakia on the coast recently, after many months of closure. If they are not actually winning the war on the ground, they are certainly not losing it. Saudi Arabia and Qatar continue to feed weapons to the rebels, but not in quantities that would give them a chance of winning. This is probably because they have become increasingly nervous about the kind of regime that would replace Assad’s dictatorship after a military victory. They wanted to replace Assad’s secular regime with a government controlled by Sunni Muslims, but they do not want to put a fanatical Islamist regime in power. That, at the moment, is precisely what an insurgent victory would produce, for the jihadi extremists of the al-Nusra brigades are by far the most effective fighters on the rebel side. The prospect of a radical Islamist regime has also convinced many moderate Syrians that they must prevent the fall of the Assad regime, even though they loathe it. A year ago, the battle for Syria seemed to be turning into a straightforward struggle between the Sunni Muslim majority, some 70 per cent of the population, and the various minorities, Shia, Christian, Alawite and Druze, who backed the Assad regime because they feared Sunni domination. It’s probably more like 50-50 now, because many Sunni Muslims are equally repelled by the alternative of a radical Islamist tyranny. There are no opinion polls to confirm this shift in Sunni opinion, but the evidence is there in the loyalty and the combat effectiveness of the Syrian army, most of whose rank-andfile troops are Sunni Muslims. So what should we hope for, in this almost hopeless situation? The least bad outcome, at this stage, would be a stealthy military take-over of the regime that discreetly removed Assad and his cronies without abandoning the principles of the secular state, and then isolated the jihadis by reaching a generous peace settlement with the other elements of the rebel forces. How likely is that? Not very, unfortunately.


Cuts to physiotherapy funding

Dear Editor, I am writing with respect to the April 18 announcement by Ontario Health Minister Deb Matthews wherein she unveiled her government’s plans to “invest” $156 million to “improve access” for “more seniors” to receive physiotherapy. In her remarks and accompanying news release, Matthews leaves out that physiotherapy is to be delisted from OHIP coverage effective August 1, 2013. In fact, according to government web sites, Ontario regulation 552 has already been amended—with no public consultation whatsoever. The minister also left out the part about how under the current system, seniors in long-term-care homes can receive up to 100 treatments per year, and 150 in exceptional cases. This has been in effect since 2005—the last time the Liberal government tried, and failed, to delist physiotherapy. In her more recent announcement, Matthews makes no such service level commitment. Even more disturbing is her promise that there will be “more” physiotherapy available in clinics. By committing $44.5 million to treat 150,000 seniors, the government has allocated a paltry $300 per person, or 12 treatments at a funded rate of $25 per treatment. Currently, seniors can

Her own worst enemy By Terry Bush EMC Editorial - My wife is trying her darndest to ruin my reputation. I don’t need any help from her, thank you very much. Earlier this week, she ventured off to Tweed as she does every week. Monday is her day off so she makes the trip to see her physiotherapist, runs a few errands and gets a few groceries. When I got home from work, she calmly mentioned that people in the village had either looked away as she approached or been overly friendly to her. She thought that was a little bit funny. Mare loves to laugh at herself. I didn’t share her sense of humour. The reason ... she was sporting a brand new shiner on her right eye. While Mare might find humour in the predicaments she often gets herself into, the optics are terrible. Luckily I was away camping last weekend when all this happened and I have witnesses. That both are named Steve should have no bearing on the veracity of my alibi, nor should the fact that by night’s end one felt an uncontrollable urge to constantly waltz back and forth despite the lack of music. The other Steve was much more stationary so at least one of my Steves can back me up, maybe two. Mare’s story goes something like this. Rolly woke her up at 3:30 a.m. to go outside; she let him out and went back to the bedroom. Our dog Bug likes to sleep on the floor near Mare and she was accounted for so Mare turned off the light and headed for the bed. She then managed to trip over something furry that streaked out in front of her and proceeded to plant her face into the wooden bed frame to break her fall. Me, I would have used my hand for that purpose but hey, I’m not Mare. This would be a good time to throw in an “I told you so” because Mare has heard me swearing numerous times about Lily, our latest Sheltie, who is under the impression that everyone wants to pet her so spends most of the day underfoot. Mare responds to my profanity by saying, “Oh, but she’s so cute.” Mare is kind of cute right now too if you have a fondness for black-eyed Susans and her story is just a little bit more convincing than say, she walked into a door, but as I said I was away for the weekend so I don’t really know what she was up to. This isn’t the first time this has happened. The poor girl, though long, lean and fit is a bit of a klutz. Back in her twenties, she had a pretty valid excuse as to why she had trouble seeing what her feet were doing. But she’s 52 years old and ten pounds lighter now and gravity as always, takes its toll. Usually if Mare is in a different room and you hear her go, “Ouch, ouch, ouch,” no question is required. Chances are you’ll see her painting another black toenail later in the week. Just before her 40th birthday, Mare was pretty beat up from working some insane hours, 55 one week, 25 the next or something like that. Her back was shot and to add insult to more injury, she slipped on the ice in the parking lot while leaving work and really messed things up. She was in so much pain when she got home that she passed out while sitting, lurched forward and once again used her face to break her fall. She hit the tile floor hard; tooth through the lip, broken front tooth, face swollen so much, she hardly looked like herself. What’s a good husband to do? Well, this husband had to endure a room full of women shooting daggers out of their eyes when he half-carried his wife into the dentist’s office. As luck would have it, many other professionals shared the same waiting room and the place was packed. Feeling a lot like a pincushion, I decided to wait in the car until I had to pick her up. As for the physiotherapist Mare’s now seeing, she’s helping her out with a shoulder that doesn’t always work the way it should. That one was work-related as well involving a man, a dog and a leash. She broke her fall with her shoulder that time which is a nice change from her usual face first way of doing things. Unfortunately she doesn’t have any medical benefits at work but I do for the first time in my working career. As far as I’m concerned, that in itself makes me a great husband despite what people may think when they see Mare limping down the street. She constantly hurts herself; I pay for the benefits that fix her up. It’s a match made in heaven.

receive up to 50, or up to 100 treatments, depending on their condition. To say that more people will get some degree of physiotherapy may technically be true; to suggest that any person will receive more just isn’t true. They will receive less. Finally, the most glaring omission in the minister’s announcement is any reference whatsoever to how the $156 million stacks up against the current funding levels. The current OHIP providers, the Designated Physiotherapy Clinics Association, has been advised that the total expenditure for the fiscal year ended March 2012 was $172 million, and that for the fiscal year ended March 2013, it was some $200 million. Obviously, the minister left these details out of her accuracy, and to prevent libel. Please announcement for political reasons—her $156 million ankeep letters to 600 words or less.

Carlow-Mayo Reeve Bonnie Adams told news representatives at the start of the morning meeting that when she left home early in the morning, there were still “20 roads flooded.” But she said her township had so far avoided having to call a state of emergency and was coping as long as the situation didn’t get worse. “Fireplace Showroom” For Bancroft, where flooding had been a major concern for the past several days, Deputymayor Wayne Wiggins updated councillors on how officials are “sure the worst is over.” in your Home Comfort Tracing flooding in the Bancroft downtown Since 1995 area back to the previous Saturday with schools and many businesses closed and a formal “state of emergency” declared, he said, “Schools and businesses are open today and the emergency shelter is to close this afternoon.” He said his community wants to thank county council and its staff for support during the flood and he praised the training and skills of the county’s emergency services personnel who assisted.

Building Stories on the web for heritage site

By Ray Yurkowski

EMC News - Brighton - Every building tells a story and University of Waterloo researchers are hoping the public will tell theirs on a new interactive heritage web site. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Building Storiesâ&#x20AC;? is designed to inventory historic buildings, structures and sites across the country with documentation, photographs and historical information contributed by local organizations and communities interested in preserving built heritage. And anyone can participate. The web site went live in 2012 but, says University of Waterloo heritage planner Kayla Jonas, a recent grant has enabled a series of 35 workshops to show heritage groups across the province how it works. The second stop on the tour was last week in Brighton.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re hoping the development of [Building Stories] really leverages the enthusiasm as well as the skills and knowledge local volunteers have,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All the information community groups have in their office or home can now be put online so the public can see it and learn about the places in their communities.â&#x20AC;? Mobile apps, available on a smartphone, will show the closest sites as well as walking, driving or event tours, such as Doors Open Ontario, which kicked off on April 27 and continues at different communities across the province through mid-October. Maps and written directions will show how to get there. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s definitely a way of using it for heritage tourism,â&#x20AC;? said Jonas. Municipal Heritage Advisory Committee chairperson Dave Cutler sees the

Veteran politician running to get riding back on track

web site as a good place to store information about Brighton heritage properties and, in these days of tightening budgets, hopes council will agree. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have been looking at creating a page on the municipal web site to do this, but [Building Stories] is already there,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got the structure in place and allows feedback from the public. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to cost thousands of dollars to develop a web page with the

same kind of capabilities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m very pleased with this presentation because it may cut quite a few corners for us in terms of getting this information out to the public. The committee doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come up with the final story on any building or heritage asset, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the community that does it together and this looks like a really great way to do it. We can get the information up there and anybody can add to it. Eventually,

we would end up with the best possible story.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a really good concept,â&#x20AC;? agreed Architectural Conservancy Ontario (ACO) East Northumberland president Gordon Tobey. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It will enhance the exposure of heritage properties and actually help promote heritage. The ball is rolling in the right direction.â&#x20AC;? Log on to <> for more information.

EMC News - NorthumberlandQuinte West - Lou Rinaldi, Northumberland-Quinte Westâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s long-time former MPP, has been acclaimed as the official candidate for the Ontario Liberal Party and will dedicate his candidacy to getting Northumberland-Quinte West back on track. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For nearly two years our communities have floundered as part of a havenot riding, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to turn the page and get Northumberland-Quinte West back on track,â&#x20AC;? Rinaldi said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As your Ontario Liberal candidate Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll fight for strong investment from the Eastern Ontario Development Fund; a balanced approach to healthcare, education, infrastructure, and social programs; and a fair society thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fiscally responsible.â&#x20AC;? Lou Rinaldi was the Ontario Liberal MPP for Northumberland-Quinte West from 2003-2011. After moving to Canada with his family in 1960, he received an automotive technology diploma from George Brown College and started a small business in the automotive field in 1972. He moved to Brighton in 1980 having purchased Brighton Speedway, and later served as a Brighton councillor, reeve, and mayor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In my experience, government investment tools like the Eastern Ontario Development Fund are one of the best ways to make our local communities prosper,â&#x20AC;? Rinaldi said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re why, as your MPP, I was able to open a $30-million community centre in Cobourg, pioneer a family health team in Brighton, build a YMCA and new marina in Quinte West and bring a Community Health Centre to Port Hope to reverse the PC partyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s closure of their hospital.â&#x20AC;? Rinaldi looks forward to representing Premier Kathleen Wynneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s commitment

EMC News - Trenton - John Garrett and Doug Whitley would have been proud. The new Trenton High School track was named in their honour at a special dedication on April 27. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My hat goes off to both of them,â&#x20AC;? said Duncan Armstrong, co-chair of the Trenton High School Quest project that brought a new track to the school. Armstrong noted that John Garrett taught Doug Whitley at Marmora Street School, the original high school in Trenton. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Garrett was a respected teacher and a great coach,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Doug Whitley was one of the finest student athletes.â&#x20AC;? Mayor John Williams said the city had no hesitation in getting behind this project. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This will continue on to the next generation,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The spirit gives back to the community.â&#x20AC;? Williams noted that Duncan Armstrong wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t give up when the Track Quest lost the first round of the Kraft Challenge to Wallaceburg. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dunc said, Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s do it again!â&#x20AC;? Paul Whitley said the Doug Whitley Track and John Garrett Sportsfield is an awesome new recreation facility important for the health and well-being of the city. Both men were very community minded and would be glad to know the community did it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is the last project Doug Whitley started before passing in 2010,â&#x20AC;? Paul said tearfully. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is for you, Dad!â&#x20AC;? Duncan Armstrong noted that Brett Whitley could not be here today because he is in a provincial championship. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re rooting for you!â&#x20AC;? he said with a smile. Armstrong noted Paul Whitley was co-chair of the Track Quest and his business sense helped make it work. The sons and daughter of John C. Garrett said a few words

Local students find ways to help our watersheds

By Ray Yurkowski

EMC News - Brighton - Area students presented their proposals at the ďŹ nal competition last week of the Caring For Our Watersheds contest, sponsored by Agrium Advanced Technologies. Proposals were received from Grades 8 and 9 students who answered the question, â&#x20AC;&#x153;What can you do to improve your watershed?â&#x20AC;? After researching their local watershed, identifying an environmental concern and coming up with a realistic solution, six ďŹ nalists gave their presentations to a panel of judges and all received cash awards. As well as $4,500 in prizes awarded to the presenters, their schools will receive a matching amount. An additional $10,000 in funding is also available to help the students implement their ideas. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ nalists were from East Northumberland Secondary School (ENSS) in Brighton, Kent Public School and St. Maryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Catholic Elementary School

in Campbellford. ENSS student Tyler Brown claimed the ďŹ rstplace prize of $1,000 for a more environmentally friendly way of disposing of dog waste by placing dispensers with biodegradable bags in convenient public locations throughout the watershed. Brown says the sight of some dog waste near a storm sewer inspired him. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I knew this couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be good,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So I went home, researched it and realized I had to do something about it.â&#x20AC;? Second prize ($900) went to St. Maryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s students Cassidy Meier and Caitlyn-Claire Tizzard, who want to create a BioHaven ďŹ&#x201A;oating island at Cold Creek and the Trent River to help treat polluted water before it ďŹ&#x201A;ows into the river. Kent students Tyler Airhart, Jakob Brahaney, Isaac Dart and Caleb Nicholson won $800 for their idea to turn a creek into a lagoon reservoir area.

Snow removed from the roads is dumped into a ďŹ eld, which drains into the creek and adding ďŹ ltering plants would help purify the water. St. Maryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s students Katherine Forestell, Emily McGee and Emma Stapley placed fourth ($700) with an idea to build a stream buffer at Lions Club Beach in Campbellford to help soak up the polluted water. Fifth place ($600) went to Kent students Taylor Polich, Brooke Seymour and Christina Venator with a plan to plant trees and increase the watershed forest cover near the Trent River. Sixth, Kent students Tyler Barrons, Lane Fone and Keller Spagnola hoped to save water at their school with motion sensor faucets installed in the washrooms. Acting as MC for the event, retired Lower Trent Conservation Authority general manager Jim

Kelleher was impressed with all six of the ďŹ nal presentations, saying, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The students did their research and came up with something they can actually do.â&#x20AC;? But it was no easy feat sitting at the judgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s table said Agrium quality assurance technician Jackie Somerville. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was very tough,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you sit and listen to what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re telling you and see all the homework that went into it, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just amazing. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re young adults with a wonderful future ahead of them.â&#x20AC;? One of the best moments of the contest for Agrium operations superintendent Jake DeGroot was watching the contestants react to off-the-cuff questions from the panel of judges. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when they really stepped up and, after all the research, owned their projects,â&#x20AC;? he said.

Lieutenant Colonel Dan Harris and Chief Warrant Officer Sandor Gyuk were in fine form in their running shorts. “I don’t know how many of the military are here today,” Gyuk admitted. “I can’t recognize them out of uniform!” In uniform and in precision order, a contingent of volunteers led by Captain James Pierriotti, marched the half marathon in training for Holland in July. Every year Holland celebrates the liberation by Canadians during World War II. Civilians and military volunteers walk for four days straight, going 40 kilometres a day, carrying 21 pounds of gear on their backs, not including food and water supplies. “They have to put in 600 kilometres before they are eligible for the walk,” Gyuk said. The Healthy Half Marathon included children’s games and races around the sports field. Refreshments were donated by Independent Grocers.

Officers will be on the water for fishing derby

By Kate Everson

EMC News - Quinte West - Officers will be on the water this weekend monitoring fishermen for infractions of the law. “We will be checking for licences and limits,” said Kyle Wood, Conservation Officer for MNR out of Picton. His 25-foot-long Stanley with twin 150 HP Evinrude motors is up for the job. Alongside him will be the marine patrol from the OPP of Quinte West and Centre Hastings. “Impaired boating is what we are looking for,” said Bruce McCullough, media relations with the Quinte West OPP. “It is just as serious in a boat as it is in a car.” Rob Donohoe, marine officer with the OPP, said they have a 14-foot aluminum boat and Centre

Hastings will bring its 18-foot Harbourcraft for the bay. “Safety is our first priority,” Donohoe said. “We want to remind everyone to have the proper equipment in their boat, including life jackets, navigation lights and their Pleasure Craft Operating Card. And absolutely no alcohol. We want everyone to be safe.” The OPP has zero tolerance for alcohol. At least 40 per cent of all power-boating fatality victims had a blood alcohol level above the legal driving limit. The penalty for impaired boating is the same as impaired driving or an automobile and will result in a Criminal Code conviction. The OPP and the Ministry of Natural Resources have always enjoyed a close working relationship. The focus is on safety.

Rapid Response Nurses help patients manage transition EMC News - Patients moving from hospital to home will receive additional care to ensure a successful recovery through the local Community Care Access Centre’s Rapid Response Nurse Program. The South East CCAC has hired five nurses to reduce hospitalization and avoidable emergency department visits by improving the quality of transition from hospital care to home care for medically vulnerable seniors and children. Rapid Response Nurses will care for patients with complicated health needs in consultation with CCAC care coordinators, community nurses and other community health providers by making a home visit within the first 24 hours after the patient is discharged home from the hospital for patients at high risk of readmission. “Rapid Response Nurses complement the care provided by our care co-ordinators and community nurses,” said Jacqueline Redmond, CEO of the South East CCAC. “Our aim is to help people stay at home safely and independently by

providing access to the clinical care and community supports that patients need. Rapid Response Nurses have an important role to play in helping us achieve that goal.” The nurses will assess high-risk patients once they’ve returned home to catch deteriorating symptoms or complications and prevent readmission to hospital by connecting a patient with a primary care provider, providing medication review and ensuring patients receive appropriate home supports as quickly as possible to help them stay at home safely. This program is based on research which shows that making a successful transition from hospital to home is dependent on a few critical factors and early interventions. Rapid Response Nurses will help patients understand their illness and how to take prescribed medications, arrange for follow-up medical appointments or tests and connect with their primary care providers, ensuring everyone has necessary information about each step of the patients’ journey. “It’s really a visit to stabilize and transition patients at home and link them with primary care. That includes ensuring that patients are coping well on their own, understand the hospital discharge plan including medication they should be taking and how and when to take it,” says Redmond. “The goal is to help people make the transition home safely. It is anticipated that patients will receive the knowledge they need to understand their illness and their part in managing it, as well as the necessary services in place to stay at home safely and independently.” Funded by the Local Health Integration Network, the South East Community Care Access Centre helps approximately 12,500 individuals live safely at home and in their communities each day. The CCAC works with service providers as well as clients, their caregivers and families who all have a part in meeting the goal of helping people live safely in their own home for as long as possible.

With dialogue along the lines of â&#x20AC;&#x153;do you know what time of elderly widower, Brooksie (Tim BroBy Ray Yurkowski

he got in last night?â&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I will not stand for this behaviour in my house,â&#x20AC;? itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a funny look at role reversal as, this time, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the parent who refuses to abide by the rules of the house. Dramatically, some poignant moments come with the introduction of the spirit of Grace, mostly while Brooksie is alone and the rapport between them is moving. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She just wells me up every time she comes on the stage,â&#x20AC;? says show director Sharron McMann, who directs Barn Theatre productions only once every two years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s community theatre, the first goal is to make sure the group has fun. We all come out because we have the same passion and I like to put in a long break in rehearsals so they do come together. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Second is, we do a show that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re proud of and third is putting on a production the audience will enjoy.â&#x20AC;? McMann openly admits to living through some opening-night jitters. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not so much nervous, but more like excited,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want everything to go really well for the actors. But once opening night has started, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really up to them. And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not only the actors, there are a hundred things that could wrong backstage.â&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I also love watching the audience react,â&#x20AC;? she added, and opening night didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t disappoint. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re laughing at the right times.â&#x20AC;? The show features newcomer George Lamoureux, who plays Tom, in his first-ever role on stage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I direct a production I have at least one new person,â&#x20AC;? says McMann. â&#x20AC;&#x153;New people bring a new energy and spark. It also helps bond the rest of the cast because they remember when they started out and they start helping each other. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Also, I think the audience enjoys seeing new people on stage and it gives me a challenge too. First, the challenge is finding that new person, then, working with them and developing them.â&#x20AC;? For a first-time effort, Lamoureux is a stand out. How did it feel on opening night? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was excited, I was nervous and I got cold flashes, but once I heard the laughs, I knew we were doing a good job,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was so scared the audience wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t laugh, but they did. It was great.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll do this again,â&#x20AC;? he added with a wide grin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wish I would have done this 40 years ago. All I can do now is play old guys but I hope thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more to come.â&#x20AC;? The entire cast, including Kathy Lacasse as Rose and Holly Carroll as Julia, contributes to some solid entertainment. At a pre-show dress rehearsal last week, before backstage volunteers and their families, McMann notes the reaction of one person in the audience. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not rolling in the aisles, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re dead,â&#x20AC;? she said with a laugh.

Broadway Bootcamp finale last weekend By Ray Yurkowski

EMC Entertainment - Brighton Local professional stage performer Ian Simpson had another hit on his hands last weekend as his “Broadway Bootcamp” wrapped up with a grand finale at St. Paul’s Anglican Church. The camp ran two sessions a day for three consecutive Saturdays—one for the younger set, ages seven through 12, followed by another for those 13 through 18—with a focus on honing singing, dancing and acting skills. The finale put it all together with both groups, 24 in all, performing together for their parents. The Bootcamp came as a result of parents of his private singing lesson students asking about a group class. “And since that’s my background and what I’ve done pretty much my whole life, it was right up my alley,” said Simpson. “Also, I like to support the arts and I want to try to encourage young people, if that’s something they’re interested in. I want to give them an outlet, somewhere they can go for that.” The concept struck a chord in the entire region. Some of the students were making the trip from Warkworth, Stirling and Grafton. “They were coming from all over the place, not just Brighton,” said Simpson. “That tells me there is a deficit of arts training for kids and I want them to have that opportunity. And why not give something back to the community I grew up in?” “The kids are great and we had an awesome time,” Simpson told the parents before the show. “And I’m hoping

bigger classes can do this another time.” One of the exercises on display was a “dance circle, to encourage creativity with the kids.” One at a time, the participants would run into the middle of the circle, do a dance move and everyone else would have to copy what they saw. “The idea is not to think in advance,” explained Simpson. “Whatever came to you at that moment, do it, whatever that might be.” “Being in a creative environment like this helps kids in all aspects of their lives,” he said, after the show. “I really believe that.” Simpson gives credit to East Northumberland Secondary School teachers Paul Hussey, Bruce Tonkin and Dan Walker “for working with those kids and honing an interest in the arts at the school.” And now, according to the buzz after the weekend show, some of the parents want to get in on the act. And Simpson doesn’t rule it out. “I think it would be a lot of fun,” he said.

EMC Sports â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Belleville - The Belleville Bulls season has come to a disappointing end; with a 3 - 1 loss on home ice on Monday, April 29, the Bulls were eliminated in seven games to the now-OHL Eastern Conference champion Barrie Colts. After digging themselves out of a 3 - 1 series deficit with back-to-back 3 - 1 wins, the series shifted back to Belleville for one final game, and buoyed by a raucous crowd of 3,728 who were practically spilling out of Yardmen Arena, the Bulls got off to a fast start. It took Barrie until 8:23 of the first period to record their first shot on net, while Belleville piled on 12 in that time, none more important than when Alan Quine tipped Jake Worradâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shot from the point past Barrie goaltender Mathias Niederberger for his eighth goal of the play-offs, a powerplay marker at 11:48. With the home crowd whipped into a frenzy, momentum was squarely in the Bulls favour, however, as the period drew to a close the Colts began to find the form that won them 44 games in the regular season and propelled them to the number two seed in the conference entering the play-offs. Off a Belleville turnover entering the offensive zone, the Colts were quick to turn the puck back up ice, and with an odd-man rush and some slick passing, Aaron Ekblad netted home the tying goal past Malcolm Subban in net, and the two teams headed into the first intermission all tied up.

While Belleville again opened the second period with some strong offensive opportunities, Barrie was much quicker to respond than in the first. Some back-andforth play and some big hits eventually left Barrie on the powerplay, where Tyson Fawcett tipped home a Ryan Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Connor shot to give Barrie their first lead of the game with just over eight minutes remaining in the frame. Belleville found themselves in further penalty trouble as the period drew to a close, and the home fans could be heard getting noticeably restless as Belleville entered the third period trailing 2 - 1. With just 20 minutes separating the Bulls from the end of their season, the pace was fast and furious in the third period. Bulls forward Tyler Graovac had perhaps the best chance on goal in the early going; after a Barrie turnover at the Bulls blueline he was sprung for a breakaway streaking down the ice.

Niederberger was up to the task, however, making one of his 36 saves on the night on Graovacâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s backhand, and the Bulls still trailed 2 - 1. The Bulls were getting desperate, throwing big hits and skating hard, but Barrie played stalwart defense, backed by the strong play of Niederberger and the Bulls just couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t force a goal home. Then, with time winding down on their season, Barrie put the exclamation point on the game late in the period. Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Connor let another shot rip from the point, and was rewarded with his first goal of the playoffs at perhaps the most crucial time, with only 5:50 left in the game. That was more than enough for Niederberger, who stoned the Bullsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; shooters the rest of the way to earning first star of the game honours in the 3 - 1 Barrie win. Barrie now advances to the OHL finals to face the London Knights beginning Friday, May 3. R0012067126

First place at Tora Judo Championship EMC Sports - Michelle Currie just keeps moving forward in her winning ways. Competing at the annual Tora Judo Championships held in Brampton over the weekend, Michelle defeated all three of her opponents, including two of them before the clock stopped. Michelle threw her first opponent flat on her back to end the match early, followed by another short match where she threw and pinned her opponent. The last match went the full round, and she won with a near perfect score to earn first place in her weight category. Paul Bunge was in a division of 12 competitors which included two ranks higher. He gained some experience for the day in his two losses. Bunge has been in Judo for not quite a year, yet competes against the top fighters in the province.

EMC News - Tweed - â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hot bluesâ&#x20AC;? musicians Chris Whiteley and Diana Braithwaite had Tweed Hungerford Senior School students mesmerized as they told the story of the Underground Railroad through song and storytelling. Their show is called Sugar and Gold - The Story of the Underground Railroad and even when Diana was talking, Chris was always playing something in the background. They started at the beginning of the slave trade and described for students the reasons for countries invading Africa for free labourers to work in mining silver and gold and to work on the sugar cane and cotton plantations. Through these stories they showed how blues music evolved and the direct relationship between the songs and the history. They explained how the slaves escaped to Canada and how many traditional songs contained codes that would tell conductors (people who assisted the slaves along the many paths and rivers) how many people were coming and when they would arrive. They encouraged students to sing along and had no problem getting participation as songs like Children, Go Where I Send Thee were sung loud and clear by students and teachers. They spent time explaining that the Underground Railroad was not a railroad at all but a series of paths used by Please see â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ontarioâ&#x20AC;? on page B2 Diana Braithwaite leads students around the THSS gym during her and Chris Whiteleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s performance of Sugar and Gold - The Story of the Underground Railroad.

and the schoolhouse. Museum board president Ron Reid says the season starts before opening day with plenty of work to do in the planning and scheduling of numerous special events, both public and private, as well as a sprucing up of the facility’s countless displays. And the annual cleanup, he adds, brings out dozens of supporters who make a valuable contribution to the ongoing success and growth at Farmtown Park. And the helpers who arrived last Friday made short work of a major task before museum officials greeted their first bus tour of the season on Sunday. After the official opening, Farmtown Park will be hosting its annual strawberry social, Strawberry Mania!, in June, Fibre Fest in July, Grandparents Day in September and several other special events in between. As well, Reid says, the museum’s Heritage Village has become a popular venue in recent years and has been booked for several private functions, including anniversaries and weddings, and popular annual events including the Hastings County Beer Festival. “We’re looking forward to it,” he says of the coming season, noting attendance figures rose dramatically last year and are expected to continue to rise. The museum has also committed to conducting a complete inventory of display items, says Museum Manager Margaret Grotek, as well as ensuring proper care and treatment of acquisitions that continue to arrive. Doris Wells was one of many volunteers in Stirling readying museum disEarlier this week, staff and volunteers were offered a lesEMC News - Stirling - In preparation for its official opening day on May 18, volunteers and staff at Farmtown Park were out in force last Friday with cleaning supplies, dusters, brooms and rakes in hand and up to their usual spring cleaning.

the slaves. They also told students there were large bounties of as much as $2,000 placed on the heads for many who escaped, and they were often hunted by bounty hunters who tracked them with dogs. Chris and Diana have written a number of original songs about the important historical figures that helped the slaves escape, including Alexander Ross from Belleville. They also told students about southern Ontario being one of the places that many of the freed people settled including Diana’s great, great, great-grandfather who found his freedom and settled in the Wellington area of Ontario. “It’s a wonderful opportunity to bring this show about the Underground Railroad to schools all across Canada and over seven years, we have reached over 70,000 students. We recently did a show in Virginia and it was interesting because that is where Diana’s great, great-grandfather had been; the people there were curious about the Canadian viewpoint. In developing the Underground show, Diana’s history has played an integral part in preparing the performance. Her mother has worked hard over the years at preserving black history in Canada.” “The Underground Railroad was set up like a railroad with conductors that helped escapees, safe houses which were called stations, and routes that they would take like tracks. This music is dear to me and close to my heart because of the family connection. We really want the children to learn about respecting others’ rights and freedoms,”

said Diana. Chris and Diana have been musicians all their lives and have been doing blues shows all over the world for the last ten years. They have won eight Maple Blues awards and have had a couple of Juno nominations. Ed Fowler is the director of the Blues in the School (BITS) program and is a member of the Royal Blues Fellowship in Belleville and was present for the performance at THSS. He said the BITS program started in 1978 in Chicago, home of the electric blues, and added, “Bringing blues to the schools is about educating kids in the blues. Music is such an important part of education because it involves math, social studies, history and science; it encompasses a lot of things and it gets them inspired. To get a chance to interact with professionals such as Diana and Chris is a great opportunity and kids love it!”

Equine program a confidence-builder

EMC News - Trent River - Norwood District High School’s popular after-school equine program saddled up for the last time this semester with more fun and instruction at Phoenix Stables south of Trent River. The program is rapidly approaching its tenth anniversary and continues to provide core instruction to both experienced and beginner riders leaving students with lessons they can apply in the larger

arena of daily living. “Their confidence has escalated throughout the program and they are really finding a passion for horses,” instructor Andrea Veldhuyzen told the Trent Hills Regional News as the six riders tacked and groomed their horses before heading into the ring. Four of the students were complete novices, never having ridden a horse before while two others, one a diehard barrel racer, had experience in R0012062252

the ring benefiting enormously from the lessons provided by Veldhuyzen, the recipient of Equine Canada’s National Coaching Excellence Award. “It’s always nice to get different students and different personalities every session,” Veldhuyzen says. “You always see them grow. When they accomplish something with the horse it’s a really good feeling [for me] as well as for them.” Focussing on “overall confidence” is as important as skills training in the ring and the grooming and tacking they must do before they ride, she says. “Believing in themselves, that they can do something like riding and use that in their everyday lives.”

“I think it’s a good opportunity for people who haven’t ridden yet; it’s a great experience.”

Melody Scrimshaw and Hannah Ellis ride their horses in the arena during the final session. Photo: Bill Freeman

“It provides them with a lot of responsibility, it builds leadership, and it builds a sense of ownership around making sure the horse is safe and well-groomed.” Inglis enjoys watching beginner riders shed their initial nervousness and blossom in the ring as they learn to trust the horse and discover horses are smart animals that return a sense of trust. “They become comfortable and know the horse is not going to do anything silly,” she says. “And Dre is just a marvelous coach and makes sure they don’t do anything they don’t want to do. They’ll stretch

She agrees that the horse arena can be a metaphor for the “larger arena of life. The students learn “determination and strength” and for many without the NDHS equine program they would never have had an opportunity to ride, Veldhuyzen says. “I think it’s a good opportunity for people who haven’t ridden yet; it’s a great experience,” Grade 9 student Jerrica Cunningham said. Jerrica has been around horses all her life and is using the NDHS program to sharpen her barrel racing skills. “I’m working on the barrels and hopefully get to the Calgary Stampede,” she says. “I’ve improved my balance.” “I love this program. I’m passionate about the kids becoming barn rats,” says Lori Inglis, a community volunteer who has been with the program from its earliest days. “It allows kids to grow,” Inglis said.

themselves.” The high school “has been very good, especially in helping children benefit from the program who might not be able to afford [riding lessons].” The cost is a “more than reasonable” $100 for six weeks with NDHS providing transportation to the stable and financial aid to students who can’t afford the full fee.


Crossing Wisconsin’s treacherous “Death’s Door” By John M. Smith

EMC Lifestyles - “Death’s Door” is a narrow, dangerous passageway between the waters of Green Bay and Lake Michigan. This strait, located between the Door Peninsula and Washington Island, has unpredictable winds and tumultuous currents that can cause havoc and treacherous shoals that extend far out from the shoreline. A French document from 1728 refers to this passage as “Cap a la Mort,” and this French connection is reflected in modern charts that identify it as “Porte des Morts.” “Death’s Door” was feared by both local natives and early French explorers, and it’s now the watery grave of several shipwrecks. You can learn more about the history of this fascinating area by visiting the Door County Maritime Museum, <>, at Sturgeon Bay, for it showcases its maritime roots, and at the Gills Rock Museum, located at the very tip of the Door County peninsula, on the shores of Death’s Door itself. This latter museum even features a shipwreck and scuba diving exhibit and several artefacts brought up from the bottom of Porte des Morts. On my recent visit to Wisconsin’s Door County, I took the half-hour car ferry excursion from the mainland, at Northport Pier, across Death’s Door, to Washington Island. This island has been dubbed “the Crown Jewel of Door County,” and it’s located just above the “tension line,” the line marking the half way point between the Equator and the North Pole. It’s home to the second oldest Icelandic settlement in the U.S., and it’s definitely worth a visit. To get to this tourist-friendly destination, I had to pass the uninhabited Plum Island, with its unmanned Plum Island Lighthouse, and I learned that there are more than 200 shipwrecks just off its treacherous shoreline, and about 30 of these occurred in a single year—1880. After arriving on the rather isolated Washington Island (although the ferry runs year-round, aided by an icebreaker during the winter months), I boarded the Cherry Train (actually a tram) for an island tour <www.cherrytraintours. com/>. There are only about 700 residents who live here year round on this 36-square-mile island, and I found two gas stations, one bank, and an old saloon called Nelsen’s Hall. I learned the island had a volunteer fire department, a clinic, two nurse practitioners (the closest hospital is about 80 kilometres away), and two police officers. It also has the smallest K-12 school in the state with fewer than 70 students in the entire system. I also found a grocery store with a sign advertising “FRESH LAWYERS”; this wasn’t referring to new members of the law profession, or even to naughty ones; it was actually in reference to a kind of fish, a freshwater cod found in the Great Lakes, and for sale here. I passed a few grass-roofed Scandinavian-style homes, and I visited a Scandinavian-style church, “Stavkirke” (“Church of Staves”), which looked somewhat like a Viking ship. Built by local craftsmen, it certainly reflects the island’s immigrant influence, and it’s modelled after a church built in Norway in 1150; it’s a very popular spot for island weddings. I also passed the island airport with its two grass runways, the Art & Nature Centre, and the Jackson Harbor Maritime Museum located in two former fishing sheds.

Furthermore, I visited an ostrich farm, a popular limestone beach named School House Beach, and the Farm Museum depicting life on the island in the 1880s. As I explored Washington Island via the Cherry Train Tour, my guide/driver repeated a couple of the silliest questions that she had received: “Which beach is closest to the water?” and “Is there water all around this island?” After completing my tour of Washington Island and a scrumptious picnic lunch from the island’s “Danish Mill,” I boarded another, smaller, passengeronly ferry (no cars or bicycles) for a 15-minute ride to Rock Island. If I thought Washington Island was small, this second island was miniscule in comparison—at less than a thousand acres—and with no permanent residents. The entire island is a state park, and there’s a ranger’s house, but he doesn’t stay there that often. There’s also an intriguing lighthouse to visit called Pottawatomie Lighthouse, Wisconsin’s oldest (dating from 1836 –and rebuilt in 1858), but it means a hike of about two kilometres, one way, to get there; there’s no running water or electricity, but there’s a water pump, an outhouse, and volunteer “Friends of Rock Island State Park” who take turns staying here during the summer and providing tours. I, of course, did the hike to the lighthouse while on Rock Island, and I also visited the stone Viking boathouse by the dock built by inventor Chester H. Thordarson. I also discovered that overnight camping and docking are permitted on the island and there’s a sandy beach and several interesting hiking trails. The last ferry of the day from Rock Island was at 4 p.m., and I boarded it and returned to Washington Island.

Washington Island’s Stavkirke (Church of Staves).

I then took a second ferry back to the mainland, once again crossing “Death’s Door” (which gives both Door County and the Door Peninsula its names). The only boats that now use this passageway are pleasure craft and ferries, for a shorter, safer route for freighters between Green Bay and Lake Michigan is available via the Sturgeon Bay Ship Canal, which was completed in the late 19th century.

This Coffee Pot greeted me as I arrived on Washington Island, Wisconsin.

Fry said they have had the program for several years where Scouts plant trees. “They have planted millions across Canada,” he said. “It’s part of our environmental program.” He said they work with Quinte Conservation on those lands so they know the trees will not be harvested. Trees are planted as buffers and as part of reforestation. “We are planting 500 trees today,” said Quinte Conservation ecologist Tim Trustham. “We do this every spring.” The volunteers planted an assortment of white pine, white spruce and poplar on a field off Frankford Road west of Fox-

boro. “This is Quinte Conservation property,” Trustham said. “It was a donation 15 years ago.” He said this planting will work as a wind break and to buffer nutrients from going into the nearby creek. “We have been working on this property for the past three or four years,” he added. “It’s open and good soil.” He said some trees tolerate moisture and others don’t. They have to know where to plant each type of tree. The previous weekend the Scouts planted trees in Norwood. Nick Fry said there was a wind storm and they camped out. “They loved it,” he said smiling. “They Keegan and Kaitlyn Sponagle of 2nd Sidney Scouts plant trees. Their mother Lyn was also planting that day. Photo: Kate Everson dress warm and they are prepared.”

The Good Earth:

EMC Lifestyles - The emerald ash borer (Agrilus planipennis) is a dime-sized bug. It is emerald green in colour. It bores into ash trees and it kills them. It is everywhere. The wonderful English folk tune, The Ash Grove, will no longer be sung around campfires … fueled by dead ash trees, of course. Guess what Gentle Reader? I heard that exact in-depth analysis on the news the other night, except for the musical reference; I added that myself. Professionals in the green trade have been learning about and studying this wee chappie for over ten years now. EAB is a very serious pest that has and will continue to have a tremendous impact upon our forests, landscapes and pocketbook. Detroit, 2002, was when the EAB was really noticed. By then it had already infested many ash trees in Michigan … millions of them. In 2007, it was discovered in Toronto. Current estimates say in a few years all of Toronto’s 860,000 ash trees will be history. Folks, we talk about the land of the sil-

The emerald ash borer

ver birch, the iconic maple and even the stalwart oak. We seldom talk about ash unless we wax nostalgic about baseball bats and Sherwood hockey sticks. So here’s a number to try to comprehend, a forestry source says there are approximately seven billion ash trees in North America and every single one of them is threatened. Go online and type EAB, Ontario in your browser and check out the government sites. You can also visit any nursery in the area; they will have pertinent information. So how come we’re just hearing about it now? For some reason, EAB has not been in any rush to visit our fair part of the province. It has hitchhiked, likely in firewood, from Toronto to Ottawa and on into Quebec. I fully expect to see confirmation reports of this pest in Quinte this summer: I believe it is here but not yet officially identified. How do you know if your tree is infested? Unfortunately, many folk have lost their natural sensibilities, e.g. their subconscious connection with this good earth, and don’t really think of their trees as much more than a decoration. They will notice EAB when the tree no longer has leaves. GR, monitor your trees with the same zeal you use for dandelion patrol. Ash is a tough tree with few problems so declining health is your first clue. D-shaped wet spots and small holes in the bark is another. Oh yes, woodpecker sightings should increase. If you are concerned but unsure of your detection abilities, contact an arborist. (Ask how much an inspection costs.) What can you do? I asked two of our area’s leading arborists from Richardson’s Tree Service and The County Arborist. Both are in agreement that keeping your tree healthy is the first step in surviving an EAB movement through the area. So

Dan Clost practice good nutrition, proper pruning, a nice mulched area under the tree canopy for younger trees, and supplemental watering whenever in doubt. The next step is an injection of a pesticide that will kill the bug. There are several manufactured formulations, e.g. Acecap- acephate, Confidor- imidacloprid, and Tree-azinazadirachtin the preferred biological, you will know it better as Neem. No doubt, there will be many more being presented to the Pesticide Management Regulation Agency for emergency use registration.  It really doesn’t matter the name, GR; what matters is what you want to do to save your tree. I’ll use a few figures from Mark Cullen concerning the cost of not spending a grand or so to save your tree. Consider a possibility of several thousands of dollars to remove it, another $500 or so to plant a replacement with the attendant wait of 30 or 40 years to regain the canopy and all of the increased costs associated with heating and cooling your house now that the protection is gone. Final comment: Ash trees are of the genus Fraxinus. Mountain ash is not; they are members of the Sorbus genus. EAB does not affect them.

Bigger and better, Celebrate Havelock is a “festival of community”

By Bill Freeman

Havelock - With tours of the Havelock Country Jamboree grounds, animals, musicians, a children’s treasure hunt based on the famous Havelock TD Bank robbery of 1961, Celebrate Havelock will be bigger, better and more entertaining than ever. Quickly becoming a signature event to open summertime fun in the area, the sixth annual Expo-like trade fair and showcase at the Havelock-Belmont-Methuen Community Centre May 11 promises to deliver everything and more visitors have come to expect when they browse the displays and exhibits of more than 50 vendors. The prize list had already topped the $5,000 mark three weeks before the event and organizers were expecting several more donations before the gates open. “There is excitement about the fact that it’s going to be bigger and better,” says committee chair Elmer Buchanan. “We’re spending more money on advertising so we’re expecting a bigger crowd this year. Our prizes are over $5,000 so that’s a major draw for us.” Last year, Celebrate Havelock drew over 1,000 people. In 2012 they advertised outside of the immediate postal code for the first time and were rewarded with lots of visitors from the Peterborough area.

“Now that we’re advertising further outside [the immediate area] I’m expecting we’re going to see a number of people from outside the community come and see what Havelock-BelmontMethuen has to offer,” Buchanan said. “We expect [attendance] to significantly increase with extra advertising.” “It is a festival of the community,” the retired teacher and former provincial minister of agriculture and rural affairs said. “We’re promoting Havelock and celebrating what we have here.” “I’m quite passionate about how we build community and this is [how we do it],” he said. The event receives major corporate support from sponsors like Unimin, Havelock Tim-Br Mart, Country 105 FM, Trent Hills Regional News, Havelock and District Lions Club, Havelock Country Jamboree, Sandwood Transport, Havelock Metals, Community Futures, Federal Economic Development Agency, Deal Taxi and Havelock Pharmacy as well as vendors who donate gifts. Top-end prizes include a STIHL chainsaw with brush-cutter and protective gear donated by Unimin, a Country 105 prize package that includes two tickets to the Peterborough Charlie Pride concert, two day passes to the Havelock Jamboree donated by the Jamboree, a barbeque and fire pit from Havelock Tim-Br Mart, four tickets to the Mosport NASCAR Labour Day

weekend donated by Sandwood Transport, a Copperhill solar system, four chairs and an outdoor fire pit donated by Brett Funeral Chapel and a spa day at Perfection Plus. Visitors will each get one of the 750 complimentary tote bags. “If prizes are going to draw you there are

some significant prizes,” committee member Brian Grattan says. Tim Hortons Havelock has also donated 200 lanyards for vendors, committee members and volunteers. The vendors’ list is broad and eclectic and Continued on page 7

includes businesses, organizations, agencies and emergency services. There will demonstrations by K-9 Komfort Inn, firefighters and local jiu jitsu students; animals from Elmlea Farms, entertainment upstairs by the Havelock Jammers, the Norwood District High School guitar club and blues musician and multiple Juno nominee Al Lerman; bouncy castles and a gardening workshop. There will be food available upstairs and downstairs. “Celebrate Havelock gives opportunities for not-for-profits and businesses to showcase what they do,” says Buchanan People get to “see what’s in their community. We’re always looking to get people out who have businesses [here] but don’t have exposure on the main street so it’s an attempt to bring together people and expose that business to folks.” “People also think the prizes are fantastic and are impressed that they are so numerous.”

Celebrate Havelock falls on Mother’s Day weekend and Buchanan says they’ve had some fun incorporating the occasion into the event with women receiving complimentary fudge. There will be draws each hour for bouquets of mixed flowers donated by Blooms and Blossoms. “We’re doing more of a theme this year and having flowers and fudge. We’re trying to incorporate Mother’s Day into the day and do it with a lot of prizes. It’s fun and entertaining too.” They’re also utilizing the parkland adjacent to the arena more dramatically than they did last year and will also run a bus tours from the community centre to the Jamboree grounds. Parking will be at the elementary school next door with a shuttle bus there to transport people who don’t want to walk. Celebrate Havelock will also collect donations for the food bank and give each donor a free raffle draw ticket.

The sixth edition of Celebrate Havelock will have something for everyone. The 1st Havelock Scouts will be one of the exhibitors at the community showcase May 11 at the HBM Community Centre. Photo: Bill Freeman
