EMC News - Frankford - A display by the Ministry of Natural Resources including a dog handling demonstration was intriguing to visitors at the Lower Trent Valley Fish and Game Club Youth Day on June 1. “We travel all over southern Ontario,� said Dan Van Exan from Tweed. “Our office is in Peterborough, but we have four trailers with displays for each region.� He said the animals and birds in the display were mostly taken from people committing unlawful acts, such as snaring a grouse or spearing walleye. “We have a number for people to report any crimes to us at 1-877-TIPS-MNR,� he said. “We use the Crime Stoppers method for reporting.� He said there are a number of illegal acts, such as shooting after dark, jack lighting with a spotlight, unlawful sale of fish, harvesting or selling wild ginseng (endangered), shooting from a vehicle ($3,000 fine), snaring deer or catching endangered wood turtles or badgers, netting or spearing fish. Van Exan was recently named Officer of the Year for his work with the MNR. He said the display was a good way to expose adults and children to valuable information. “Sometimes hunters are afraid to ask questions when they are with their buddies,� he said. “But here they can ask anything.� The display had several stuffed animals as well as the coats of beaver, otter, muskrat, lynx and bobcat. Dog handler Colin Cotnam brought Tanner, a yellow lab mix he got from a shelter in Sudbury five years ago. He is able to detect fish or wildlife. He has been trained as a general police service dog and has had the MNR specialist training, a total of 15 weeks. “He can detect lake trout, brook trout, walleye, whitefish, bass, moose, bear, deer, elk, wild turkey or gunpowder,� Cotnam said. “This could all be hidden stuff, but Tanner could smell it.� The Youth Day included several events, such as a Canadian Raptor Show, Fly Fishing Seminar, MasoniChip Child Identification Program, tomahawk throwing by the Quinte Tomahawk Club, Ducks Unlimited information booth, live taxidermy demonstration, rifle and shotgun shooting, a virtual shooting gallery, face painting and a free lunch and prizes. The Canadian Raptor Conservancy Show included a Harris hawk, barn owl, American kestrel, red-tailed hawk and bald eagle. The show is put on all across Canada, by James Cowan out of Victoria, Ontario. Brad Rodo and Shawn Cowan from Simcoe explained details about the birds of prey as they allowed them to fly and catch some meat held in the hand. With a six-foot wingspan, the bald eagle was the largest bird. “It’s lazy,� Brad said. “It will wait for an osprey to catch a fish then it will swoop down and grab the fish. Or it will chase the osprey and catch them both!�

Quinte Access holds successful wheelchair accessathon By Kate Everson

EMC News - Quinte West - Over 47 participants piled into Quinte Access buses or wheeled their wheelchairs down Front Street to find out just how accessible the city’s downtowns are. “We’re going to Frankford,� said Matt Goodman partnered with Rick Kevan of Rock 107. “I hope we’re taking the bus!� Teams of two took turns in the wheelchair, following courses set up for them

in Trenton and Frankford. The goal was to see what it is like for people in wheelchairs to get where they want to go in our city. After it was all over, a barbeque was held at the Quinte Access parking lot with help from volunteers. “I’m glad it’s not raining,� said volunteer Doug Jackson as he helped participants go the right way in the obstacle course. He is on the accessibility committee which sponsors the event with Quinte Access.

The Accessathon has been held for several years, bringing awareness of the needs of our most vulnerable population. Barriers to access include sidewalks and entrances to buildings that a wheelchair cannot navigate. The obstacle course was a tough introduction for volunteers who found just going backwards was a challenge. From pavement to dirt was another problem. If there is a slight incline, the situation is even more difficult. Please see “Accessibility� on page 5

Meeting goals pleases QHC chief By Jack Evans

EMC News - Belleville - Four goals set, four goals met. That situation has Quinte Health Care President and CEO Mary Clare Egberts bubbling with pride of accomplishment. The report, based on latest data processed, was presented at the board’s May meeting held at Ban-

croft on May 28. “We had high hopes but we really didn’t know until the last minute,” she said of the four-part program, “especially meeting our budget.” The latter was confirmed with a statement showing more than $160,000 in the black as of the end of April, and also the end of the hospital corpora-

tion’s year. Other targets included enhanced quality and safety of care, exceptional patient experience and effective care transitions. “I’m very proud to achieve the four corporate goals. It was a lot of hard work and leadership by all staff. It took a full year of effort. The budget especially was not a

sure thing; we had to see the numbers.” The meeting in Bancroft was part of QHC’s policy of meeting at all four hospitals during the year. In other business, the board heard a report on progress toward a complete new hospital facility in Picton, and that the Local Health Initiatives Network (LHIN) is sup-

EMC News - Trenton - Hillary Rabbit made its debut at the Volunteer and Information Quinte fair in Trenton on May 30, but she has been helping children for a long time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hillary speaks to the heart,â&#x20AC;? said Kathleen Foster-Morgan, founder of the Edith Fox Life and Loss Program. She said children who have suffered trauma or loss in their short lives need a warm, comforting touch to help them heal. Kathleen offers programs for children from ages six through teens to deal with critical illness or loss issues such as divorce, separation or death in the family. An eight-week program called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lambs for Childrenâ&#x20AC;? started using lambs as a comfort zone for the children to touch and hold. Now they offer bunnies and the arts to help increase conďŹ dence and self-esteem. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We call it animal-assisted therapy,â&#x20AC;? Kathleen said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Grief needs a form of expression, and just holding an animal helps children heal.â&#x20AC;? The centre offers a ďŹ ve-day Camp Star (where we make every child feel like a Star) to develop artistic skills. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We look honestly at past hurts and work with characters, improvisation and script writing to weave their emotional pain to a safe place,â&#x20AC;? she adds.

Quinte West EMC - Thursday, June 6, 2013 5


Hydro One and OPG are two different entities Dear Editor, Wyley Canuck has obviously done a great deal of research into the wages in the utilities industry, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s too bad that he hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t got his story quite right. As it stands now in our province there are two separate main players in the energy game. Wyley lays the blame on Hydroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s doorstep, but then proceeds to malign persons in Ontario Power Generation (OPG) who operate outside of Hydro One. He continues to blunder when he crit-

icizes the wages of nuclear operators without the slightest understanding of their workload. I for one, keeping in mind that we live downwind from Pickering NGS and Darlington NGS, do not want any Homer Simpson type behind that first operatorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s desk. Perhaps Wyley has forgotten Three Mile Island and Chernobyl. A nuclear first operator must have the attributes of: (a) a nuclear engineer to deal with the operation of the reactor and its

radioactive contents, (b) an electrical engineer to understand the myriad of control circuits for the reactor, its support systems and in-plant power systems that keep the reactor safe, and finally the energy connection to the grid that receives the generated power, (c) a hydraulics engineer to deal with problems related to the vast pumping systems that provide water to the boilers, reactor cooling water, water for the steam condensers, and de-mineralized cooling water

for the generator. He must have a further understanding of how all these interdependent systems react with one another, especially when there is a problem with one or more. At the start of each new shift, he must be able to grasp the implications of ongoing work that the previous first operator has approved before even looking at the requests for the dozens of work authorizations that will cross his desk during his own shift. Work

on the units does wait for a shutdown unless the problem is very major. Try to imagine mechanics working on your car while you drive to work, all the time keeping you safe. The first operator must read and evaluate each and every work authorization request, then decide whether or not to let work proceed. Because of the complexity of the interdependent systems, one job can have a serious impact on other ongoing work or upon the safety of the public, the work-

ers, or the integrity of the reactor itself. Homer Simpson, or perhaps even Wyley Canuck, wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t qualify to sweep the floors in Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nuclear power stations. But to give Wyley his due, the wages paid to the topmost people in the industry do require some scrutiny. Take, for example, the â&#x20AC;&#x153;smartâ&#x20AC;? meter fiasco that we are all now saddled with. But thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s another story for another day. Bob Johnson, Stirling

Radio Moscow model coming soon to Canada

Dear Editor, If you look around the world today, and have even a slight grasp of history, you will know all dictators understand they must control the media if they are to control the people. Some dictators use their army to enforce this control of information. Concentration of media in the hands of a few very wealthy corporations in America has achieved the same outcome for American political parties. Right now the Harper government is moving stealthily toward Canadian media control on two fronts. They are counting on Canadians to be too busy in their daily lives to notice. By the time they do, it

will be too late. Harperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s majority government is about to pass another Omnibus Budget Bill (C-60). Within this 115-page bill is an obscure section near the end which effectively gives our Canadian government control over what is supposed to be an independent public broadcaster. The CBC is slowly but surely being morphed into a state broadcaster for the advancement of Harperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s agenda. As reported in the Hill Times on May 1 of this year: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bill C-60 gives Cabinet the power to stipulate contract bargaining mandates, setting salary limits and other conditions, through the Cabinetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Treasury

Board Committee of ministers. It also allows Cabinet to assign a Treasury Board Secretariat employee to oversee the negotiations. The CBC Board of Directors would be responsible for ensuring CBC followed the orders.â&#x20AC;? Harper is now consolidating control of the CBC Board in the same way he took control of our Senate. Seven of the most recent appointees to the CBC Board, all appointed by Harper and his cabinet, have made some rather substantial donations to the Conservative Party since 2006. Editorial independence is essential to our democratic system and we are about to lose it.

CBCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Radio 2 was forced to start selling advertising last week. This is the first step in commercializing CBC Radio. If I were in the prediction business I would wager that not too many years will pass before CBC will be privatized, then sold off to some business cronies of Harper who will ensure that only news favourable to his governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s agenda will ever see the light of day. To this end another $115 million has been withdrawn from the CBC budget. The mantra Harperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lieutenants will all use is, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are saving the taxpayers money.â&#x20AC;? This is another lie. Financial studies have proven our CBC investment dollars spin

Too many standing ovations I feel they are justified when a performance has exceeded the ordinary, the expected level, and has achieved a higher unexpected one. By ordinary I mean that the performance had reached a standard that we, the audience, have appreciated and our genuine applause demonstrates this along with our thanks for the entertainment given through their talents. A one- or two-person standing ovation can unnerve the remainder of the audience which then follows suit. If the ovation

is, in my opinion, undeserved or given just to encourage (especially younger) performers I, and I suspect others, are faced with quandary; do we follow suit or sit tight and appear unappreciative of the performersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; efforts. I think the ultimate example of standing ovation insincerity is sadly, demonstrated in our nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Parliament Buildings when its members resemble Jack-in-the-box characters when applauding their party leaderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s every statement.

because of a lack of viewers. If the CRTC grants mandatory carriage, Sun TV will be forced into millions of Canadian homes with subscribers getting the bill for a service they do not necessarily care to watch. Teneycke told the CRTC that if they are not given this revenue stream, amounting to around $18 million per year, then Sun TV is dead. Harper and his apostles know exactly what they are doing. It is death by a thousand cuts. All Canadians will be poorer for it in many ways if we allow them to succeed. Alan Coxwell,  Stirling

More problems with Hydro One Dear Editor, Like Mr. Leavens of Stirling, I too received mailed notification from Hydro One that they would be closing the gap of 18 days between the dates of the meter reading and the bill issuance. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fine. Whatever. They need this one-time infusion of extra cash. Â What really irritates me is that the gap between the time that the outgoing meter is read on my handful of solar panels and the date that they issue a statement is 21 days; (I am typically

paid for the power I generate about two weeks after that.) I did not receive notification from Hydro One that they would be closing the 21-day gap and they have still not responded to my request for an explanation of this oversight. And for this outstanding service on my solar account, I am required to pay them a fee of $6.10 every month for them to write me a cheque! Tim Nourse, Brighton

Theft charges laid after speeding complaints


Dear Editor, To stand or not to stand, that is the question. I do not mean to stand for election, I mean to stand as in â&#x20AC;&#x153;a standing ovation.â&#x20AC;? It is my opinion that standing ovations are becoming excessive, almost the norm, and are thereby degrading it as a measure of the appreciation of excellence. Although given in all sincerity, they should not be automatic.

off much more money than they cost the taxpayer with the creation of jobs in our artistic and intellectual communities. This $115million cut to CBC about equals Harperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ubiquitous â&#x20AC;&#x153;Action Planâ&#x20AC;? propaganda campaign which does nothing for our economy. On the second front Harperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s former Director of Communications Kory Teneycke, now the vice-president of Sun Media, made a final pitch to the Canadian Radio-Television Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) on May 2, to be given Mandatory Carriage status. Sun TV has been bleeding about $17 million a year since its launch two years ago

EMC News - Brighton - Three men were charged with theft under $5,000 after police responded to complaints about vehicles travelling at excessive speeds on a residential street connected to an unassumed road in Brighton. The first report came in around 7:15 p.m. May 29. Police located the suspect vehicles on the road at the west end of Butler Street West â&#x20AC;&#x153;but were unable to follow up because a priority call was received,â&#x20AC;? Northumberland OPP media relations officer Constable Karen German said in a news release. Following a second complaint, received around 9:30 p.m., officers stopped a 1999 Chevrolet Cavalier and a 1999 Chrysler Intrepid on Monck Road near Ontario Street

and found three men who had been arrested previously as a result of a criminal investigation in April. It was subsequently determined a theft had occurred at a local auto recycling business and the three men were arrested and taken to the OPP detachment in Brighton. Brandon Bernard, 18, Quinte West, and Lucas Boucher, 18, Brighton, were also charged with two counts of failing to comply with an undertaking given to an officer in charge. Bernard was also charged with possession of break-in instruments. Jordan Paul E. Chambers, 19, Brighton, also faces an additional charge of failing to comply with an undertaking given to an officer in charge as well as one count of possession of break-in instruments.

Drums along the Nile

EMC Editorial - All students of geopolitics are familiar with the legend that Egypt has privately warned all the governments upstream on the Nile that it will start bombing if they build dams on the river without its permission. The truth of that story is about to be tested. Last month Ethiopia started diverting Gwynne Dyer the waters of the Blue Nile in order to build the Great Ethiopian Renaissance Dam, a $4.7-billion, 6,000-megawatt hydroelectric project that is the centrepiece of the country’s plan to become Africa’s largest exporter of power. Egypt instantly objected. “We have a strong legal case to insist that our share of the Nile water is preserved,” said an anonymous government source—but he didn’t mention bombers. Egypt depends utterly on irrigation water from the Nile to grow its food. Even now there is not enough (it already imports almost 40 per cent of its food), and Egypt’s population is still growing fast. If the amount of water coming down the Nile diminishes appreciably, Egyptians will go hungry.    A treaty signed in 1929 gave 90 per cent of the Nile’s water to the downstream countries, Egypt and Sudan, even though all the water in the river starts as rain in the upstream countries: Ethiopia, Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania. It seemed fair at the time: the 20 million people in the downstream countries depended heavily on irrigation, while the 27 million in the upstream countries had plenty of rain-fed land and hardly irrigated at all. Things have changed since then. According to the International Data Base of the U.S. Census Bureau, there are now six times as many people in the Arabic-speaking countries downstream, and eight times as many people in the African countries upstream. Egypt is using all of its share of the water—and the upstream countries are starting to use the water for irrigation too. The Great Ethiopian Renaissance Dam is the first real test of Egypt’s tolerance for upstream dam-building. The reservoir will take 63 million cubic metres of water to fill; Egypt’s annual share of the Nile’s water is 55.5 million cubic metres. So even if Ethiopia takes five years to fill the reservoir, that will mean 20 per cent cuts in the water Egypt receives from the Nile for five years. And even after that there will be a large annual loss to evaporation. This dam is just the start. Ethiopia plans to spend a total of $12 billion on dams on the Blue Nile for electricity and irrigation, and Uganda is negotiating with China for financing

for a 600-megawatt dam on the White Nile. More dams and irrigation projects will follow—and the upstream states are in no mood to let Egypt exercise its veto under the 1929 treaty. That treaty was imposed when all the countries involved except Ethiopia were under British rule, and it reflected Britain’s big investment in Egypt. In 2010 six upstream countries (including Burundi and Rwanda) signed a Co-operative Framework Agreement to seek more water from the Nile, effectively rejecting the colonial-era treaty and demanding that Egypt relinquish its veto and accept a lower water quota. That’s not going to happen. Mohammed Allam, Egypt’s minister of water resources under President Hosni Mubarak when the upstream states signed their agreement three years ago, warned that “Egypt reserves the right to take whatever course it sees suitable to safeguard its share.” His country sees the matter as a national security issue, Mohammed Allam said: “Egypt’s share of the Nile’s water is a historic right that Egypt has defended throughout its history.” The post-revolutionary Egyptian government under President Mohammed Morsi cannot afford to be less firm in defending Egypt’s interests. The issue will probably be kicked down the road for a couple of years, because the Great Ethiopian Renaissance Dam will not be completed until 2015 at the earliest. But there is big trouble for Egypt (and Sudan) further down the road. By 2025, a dozen years from now, Egypt will be trying to feed 96 million people, which would be very hard even with its existing giant’s share of the Nile’s water and all its current food imports. The countries that signed the Co-operative Framework Agreement will have 300 million people, so by then they will also be extracting very large amounts of water from the Nile Basin for irrigation. Without that water, Egypt’s only options are beggaring itself with massive food imports (until the foreign exchange runs out altogether), or famine. Unless, of course, it decides on war— but its options are not very good on that front either. Not only are the upstream countries a very long way from Egypt (the Nile is the world’s longest river), but they will have strong support from China, which is financing most of the dams they are now building or planning. Egypt, by contrast, has repudiated its former American ally, and may find that the U.S. is reluctant to re-engage even if the government in Cairo can overcome its own distaste for Washington. Why would the United States want a confrontation with China over Egypt? So there probably won’t be a war. And Egypt will probably face an apocalyptic food shortage in ten or fifteen years.


Trent Hills’ council deserves credit Dear Editor, In a perfect world, green energy would solve the world’s needs, private investment would handle the costs, our hydro costs would become more economical and we’d all live happily ever after. However, in its infinite wisdom, our provincial government fleeced taxpayers and energy users of billions of dollars in unfair electrical bills to fund wind turbines and solar panel energy initiatives. Also, they experimented with the well-being of citizens by allowing wind turbine development to happen without properly studying possible health repercussions. That is why the Municipal Council of Trent Hills should be commended for recently passing a resolution declaring that it will not be a willing host of any wind turbines with a rated capacity higher than 100 kilowatts. Council deserves additional plaudits for coming out in the resolution recommending that all seven municipalities in Northumberland County follow the example set by Trent

Hills by also approving resistance toward wind turbine development. In particular, Warkworth Councillor Kim MacNeil deserves credit for researching the issue and then coming forward as a leader to present the wind turbine resolution. She said she was motivated because of the health concerns expressed by the public and “the economics versus the risks of industrial wind turbines which have not yet been clearly identified or articulated for the taxpayer.” The Green Energy Act notwithstanding, Councillor MacNeil makes a lot of sense when she asks “why should people try putting up wind turbines and start a war about putting them up?” Few are against the concept of renewable energy but only if it can be achieved with economic sanity and also guaranteeing citizens avoid suffering health problems.

And here we go again By Terry Bush EMC Editorial - Sneaky. There’s no other word for it. About a month ago, Mare and I were out splitting wood near Stirling. Not the time of year one wants to be in the wood business but if you slack off when you should be cutting, there’s always a price to pay later on. There wasn’t so much cutting going on as there was splitting big blocks, which weren’t located in a convenient location. So, being the guy, I walked across the dried up stream bed and carried those remnants of very large butt logs back where the splitter awaited. Not an easy task, walking with 150-pound blocks on uneven terrain but without a tractor, one does things one shouldn’t to keep warm for the winter. I put it down to old man strength, you know the power that doesn’t seem possible from someone who’s getting older and losing muscle mass but still seems to wait in reserve until you need it. It’s almost like you have the same strength you’ve always had but just can’t work as long as you used to work. I am now officially my father at 55, the guy who could dig two or three post holes to my one when I was in my twenties and fit as a fiddle. Old man strength is why you don’t get out of control at stag parties or the hunting camp because if there are guys there drinking with you in their fifties and sixties, they’re the ones who’ll put you out the door on your ass. Back woods old man strength you really have to watch out for. Never cross a 70year-old trapper. Anyway, after getting all that wood split, hauled home and stacked, I noticed the black flies had taken their toll. A couple of days later, the bites were still pretty itchy so scratch I did. It wasn’t bug bites. Needless to say, those itchy spots soon spread and my first bout of poison ivy was well under way. Maybe it came from picking up blocks though I was wearing gloves. Maybe it wasn’t from doing wood at all. With three furry dogs roaming the woods it could have come from them. Poison ivy just seems to magically appear at times and then your only option is to wait it out for a couple of weeks. I did my time and just when it was almost cleared up, I cut the lawn and did some weed whacking. Only saw one little patch of poison ivy on my travels and that was at the bottom of some long grass I had just cut. No worries there.  There are quite a few mosquitoes out these days and we’re constantly being bitten. Our dogs ferry a dozen or so in each time they enter the house so when I was at work scratching a few bumps in front of my ear, I thought nothing of it.  The next day I shaved and by the end of the day a few more appeared. More the next day and then I realized it was round two. Shaving had spread it across my face, the bumps were blisters and to make matters worse, spots appeared on my eyelid. When I woke up the next morning and opened my eyes, my vision seemed to be impaired. Looking in the bathroom mirror, the problem was apparent. My eyelid had swollen up so much that it was drooping over my eye so I could only see out of the very bottom. I looked like Joan Rivers would if her eye tucks let loose. The razor was put away and I holed up for a few days. Luckily, when this round of poison ivy made its way through my bloodstream it didn’t pop up in any locations that would cause the better half to shout “Cooties” and ban you from the bedroom. It did seem to concentrate on my driving finger though, the one I use when travelling to Toronto. Luckily there were no road trips planned. I managed to scrape my face before heading off to my cousin’s mini family reunion on the weekend. Funny how many people think they’re immune to poison ivy because they’ve never had the pleasure. I said that too before I got it for the first time ten years ago and have had it every year since. I tried not to shake hands with people wanting to live life on the edge. When you see how badly some people are affected, I’m still an amateur. Karen Revisited, our new designer at the paper had it so bad once she spent some time modelling only underwear around the house because clothes were a major problem. Other people have had it in places nobody wants it … under their belts where it itches and spreads when the blisters constantly break. I’ve seen people in the emergency room covered head to toe. Some use calamine lotion, some Gold Bond, some Javex. My solution is rubbing alcohol every time I walk through the bathroom door to try to dry it up. At least it feels like I’m doing something constructive whether there are any medical benefits or not. I got off fairly easy this time though I’ve never had it on my scalp and face before. Still not sure where I picked it up and probably will never know. I seem to be more susceptible the older I get. No old man strength solution to this one.

Telemedicine the way of the future for instant healthcare By Kate Everson

EMC News - Quinte West - For patients who do not like to travel for appointments with a specialist, telemedicine is the answer. “There is a special video camera that captures the interview with your specialist on Skype,” says Pam Garrison, an RPN with the Belleville and Quinte West Community Health Centre. She said the consultation records the interview including any photographs needed for the specialist to study. “The specialist can zoom in to

make it 50 times closer,” adds Beverly Putnam, an RN with Telemedicine. “It is also on a secure network, only available to healthcare professionals.” The system is funded by the South East Local Health Integration Network and is free for anyone with an OHIP card. “We will go where you are located in Hastings and Prince Edward Counties,” said Garrison. “You just need a reference from your doctor to contact the specialist.” She said this service has been available here since January, al-

though it was operating in Prince Edward County for two years. It was originally designed in 2008 for patients who live in remote areas such as northern Ontario, but now is becoming available to everyone. “It’s really beneficial,” Garrison says. “We can do anything through Telemedicine now.” She said the doctor must be registered in the system in order to work with Telemedicine. A referral could take a couple of weeks or a couple of months, depending on how busy the specialist is. “It saves people time and energy

travelling back and forth to Kingston or Toronto,” she says. The system uses a telestethoscope to hear the heartbeat and breath sounds through the video. “They can hear everything just like a real stethoscope,” she said. Two dermatologists, one in Belleville and one in Peterborough, are both signed up with the system. For a telemedicine appointment for dermatology, your doctor will take photographs of your skin conditions

and forward them electronically to the specialist. He will review the information, make a diagnosis and send treatment recommendations back to the doctor who will follow up with a treatment plan. “A telemedicine appointment is just like a regular doctor’s appointment,” Putnam says. “Only the specialist will be seeing and speaking with you on a monitor.” For more information visit <> or call 1-866-454-

6861. Meghan Thain, a social worker, with Belleville and Quinte West Community Health Centre said this is just one of the programs being offered through the centres. Check out <> or call 613-965-0698 extension 233 for more information. All the programs offered are free and available to the public. You do not have to be a client at the centre to sign up.

EMC News - Brighton - The Toronto Star garage sale hullabaloo ended last week with an apology to municipal Deputy-mayor Craig Kerr. It started with a story in the May 19 issue, under the headline, “Tough garage sale rules suck joy out of bargain hunting.” The next day, Kerr opened a council meeting with a blast, aimed at the newspaper and “a small cadre of people with a petty, personal political agenda promoting such items erroneously as the focus of their efforts.” Kerr also launched a formal complaint with Star public editor, Kathy English, charging the reporter with “a number of statements, assertions and allegations that are either incorrect or would lead a reasonable reader to conclude that the article is biased.” Early last week, English replied, saying she is standing by her reporter’s notes. “But she couldn’t explain the statement that I broke the rules,” said Kerr. “I gave some additional details about who triggered this story at this late date and she was going back to her reporter for explanations about why this story now?” On May 30, the Star published an apology. “A May 20 (sic) article about controversy over a new garage sale bylaw in Brighton, Ont., mistakenly said Councillor Craig Kerr, who helped pass the bylaw, admitted to breaking at least one rule himself by posting signs on street corners for his wife’s yard sale,” they wrote. “In fact, Kerr,

Mothers and daughters learn together

number of hands on demonstrations and activities throughout the course of the day, including rumba, yoga and CPR training, and Corrigan said that getting daughters involved along with their mothers was a key component of the event. “As far as looking at self-esteem and health issues, a lot of young women do look to their moms for that,” she said. “It’s a family thing, and we just felt that there was a niche in the community that we could fill.” Corrigan added the reverse was certainly also true, that mothers can also be inspired by their daughters to stay healthy and active. “We get so busy driving our children to events and so forth, to do something with them is something special,” she said. In planning since about the new year, Corrigan said the reasoning behind the expo was partly triggered by a recent study at Brock University that found stress to be a major factor in young women’s lives when looking at risk of heart disease and stroke. The expo was planned as an opportunity to Zumba instructor Brenda Barker of Goodlife Fitness leads participants give women a chance to learn lifelong lesthrough a workout during the first Heart and Stroke Mother/Daughter sons on staying healthy and fit to avoid that Strong Hearts Expo held at St. Theresa Secondary School on Saturday, June stress, while also raising awareness of the foundation within the community and rais1.

EMC News - Belleville - Living a busy lifestyle, it can be easy to forget to eat right and exercise as much as you should. “Healthy eating and a healthy lifestyle isn’t necessarily a hard thing,” said Heart and Stroke Foundation area manager Maureen Corrigan. “It can be a fun thing, and it can be a family

thing.” In aid of this pursuit, the foundation held their first annual Heart and Stroke Mother/ Daughter Strong Hearts Expo at St. Theresa Secondary School on Saturday, June 1, where mothers and their daughters could learn how to live healthy in order to avoid a stressful lifestyle. The expo featured a

ing much needed dollars for ongoing research. “Lots of times people say ‘Is it local?’” Corrigan said. “There’s nothing more local than your sister or your mom or your child who is a survivor of heart disease or stroke, and it’s all because of the research.” Turnout for the event was light at the opening of the expo

at 10 a.m., but Corrigan said that with the “expo” tag attached she expected more people to come through as the day went on. She said the organizing committee of Christine Sudds, Michelle Jiwa and Christina Tomin was already looking ahead to next year’s event, and that she hopes it becomes a mainstay in the community for years to come. When

asked about a father/son event, Corrigan laughed and said the idea certainly had potential. “It’s just to keep heart health top of mind for everyone,” Corrigan said. “All the health charities, we’re all promoting the same thing, a healthy lifestyle, and the more we can keep that top of mind for everyone the better we are in Hastings/ Prince Edward County.”

EMC News - Brighton - In the wake of a public meeting to save the local YMCA, Mayor Mark Walas explained to reporters and members of council on Monday night how it was he sat on information for more than three weeks from fitness centre operators interested in moving to town. “I received a telephone call from the individuals, who had been following the news and they asked me what I thought,” he said. “I invited them to the meeting and my understanding was they were in attendance. “At that point I didn’t think it was going to affect the working group because anyone wishing to start a new business would take the necessary steps to start a new business in the community.” The call came in on May 8. “I’m a little perplexed,” said Councillor Mike Vandertoorn, who recalled a meeting two days later at Brighton council chambers, which included himself, Walas, municipal CAO Gayle Frost, two Brighton Health Services Centre board members and two representatives from YMCA Northumberland, including CEO Kyle Barber. “You never said a word to us that you had been contacted by an outside business willing to come to town and offer a fitness centre to this municipality. “Further, on the night of [the public meeting] May 30, you actually spoke with these people. One asked if he could make remarks, seeing as it was a public meeting, and you told him ‘no.’” “At that point we were watching the video and there was no opportunity for question period,” offered Walas. “The meeting was not adjourned,” said Vandertoorn. “Since when do we prevent people from speaking out at a public meeting?” “I was only going by the agenda at that time,” answered Walas. “This has the potential to be a significant game changer in this whole process,” said Vandertoorn. “This is valuable, vital information you had for almost a month that you should have shared with your council and the other stakeholders. Why you decided to stick it in your pocket and hold on to it, I have no idea.” “It is of significant interest and has the potential of saving us tax dollars if a

The Drop-In centre is open Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings from 4 to 8 p.m. Youth can come in and just â&#x20AC;&#x153;hang outâ&#x20AC;? with their friends, play the X-Box Kinect or Wii, join an air hockey tournament, or surf the Internet.

munity Futures organizations provided funding for the project as well, so it’s really taking on a regional aspect and that regional aspect is a key element in making this work.” “It’s built around multiple sources of revenue,” he added. “You can rent space to do food processing, you can also rent refrigerator or freezer space for storage. We’ve talked to a couple of small business start-ups that are looking to co-locate. And there’s also a facility for a home for the Northumberland Federation of Agriculture … a meeting area and a home base.” About $600,000 was raised for the project but, says Borowec, “our business plan is around using the facility. The revenue stream should cover it all. We’re looking at a ‘not-for-profit’ sort of structure but also not for loss. It has to work.” “This project is the inspiration of our farmers and our foodies and that collective group see endless possibilities and when they’re empowered, they make great, and great tasting, things happen,” said county agricultural co-ordinator Trissia McAllister.

“This is about collaboration,” said Borowec. “It has a lot of moving parts and nobody else is doing this. We certainly thank the Trillium Foundation for being part and parcel of what we’re about to do here. This is important and we’ll do great things with this. It’s second-source revenue for the farming community and a chance to create employment opportunities for our youth.” “Some of the farming community doesn’t want

to actually go in and process,” he added. “They’ll pay for the processing to take place. That alone will create some employment.” The request for proposal for the project closes this week with an eye to being up and running by February 2014. The plan is to have the building up by November and the equipment in place by the end of January. “This is perhaps the most exciting announce-

ment I’ve seen in quite some time,” said county Warden Hector Macmillan. “Hooray for agriculture in Northumberland County.” Why Colborne? “The agricultural community suggested this be their preference,” said Borowec. The Colborne industrial park is located only metres away from Highway 401 and is easily identified because of the “Big Apple.”

Arts council receives donation

EMC News - Tweed The Tweed & Area Arts Council (TAAC) has just received a donation of professional film projection and portable sound equipment from John Wilson and Denice Wilkins, renowned Canadian wildlife cinematographers, naturalists and environmentalists.

The new equipment consists of a professional projector capable of use in very large spaces and outdoors. There is a small portable mixer and amp, cables, microphones, projector stand, speakers and speaker stands. The amp, mixer and projector are housed in their own travel

cases. This new equipment will allow the TAAC to hold events, which require amplification and film projection at off-site areas such as in Memorial Park, the Kiwanis Pavilion or the White Building while the existing equipment will remain housed permanently at the Marble Arts Centre.

Boy Scouts is fun and more adventure for girls too By Kate Everson

EMC News - Quinte West You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to be a boy to be a Boy Scout. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some girls like the rough and tumble of Scouts,â&#x20AC;? said Kathryn Brown, manager eastern and northern Ontario Scouting Service Centre. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They like to get out and about.â&#x20AC;? She said while some girls may start out in Guiding, they can easily transition to Scouting at any time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are more active programs in Scouts,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They may like to do more extreme kayaking or canoeing.â&#x20AC;? Kathryn has three sons of her own and one grandson. They are all active in Scouting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It makes them self-sufficient,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They learn leadership, outdoor skills. They can cook and look after themselves. It also makes

them environmentally conscious.â&#x20AC;? However, she added that Scouting does not compete with Guiding as both have very valuable programs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Right now there are half boys and half girls in Scouting,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s totally co-ed.â&#x20AC;? She noted that Guides do not accept boys as members. The Scouts start as Beavers as young as five to seven years old, then Cubs from eight to ten, Scouts at ages 11 to 14, Venturers from 14 to 17 and Rover Scouts at ages 18 to 26. Volunteers are welcome to help out at any level. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are currently growing our membership in this area,â&#x20AC;? Kathryn said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to get more members.â&#x20AC;? There are groups in Quinte West including Wooler and Trenton. The

Frankford group needs to be re-started. Consecon and Belleville also have active Scouting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We try to adapt to the needs of the community,â&#x20AC;? she said. Two summer camps are offered this year, one in Oshawa and another near Perth. Camp Samac in Oshawa is a day camp on 240 acres with a manmade lake. The day camp is for ages five to 13 and includes swimming, arts and crafts, canoeing and nature activities. The camp also has a residential camp for an outdoor experience, camping and cooking by a campfire and learning to live with nature. A brand new Survival Camp is for experiencing a more challenging wilderness program. See <campsamac@scouts. ca> for details. Camp Opemikon near Perth is located on Chris-

tie Lake and helps campers learn skills at various levels for ages seven to 16. See <> for information. Everyone is welcome including nonScouting members. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is also a Kingston kayaking group that does whitewater kayaking, survival camping and rock climbing,â&#x20AC;? she adds. Kathryn has brought her whole family with her in Scouting, through three generations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a passion,â&#x20AC;? she admitted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love working with kids.â&#x20AC;? She notes that anyone volunteering in the Scouting program is carefully screened and must take a safety-training program. Two adults, not one alone, must be with a child. The world jamboree is coming up in July in Alberta this year with over 7,000

Scouters attending. Kathryn say she â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amazing,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a has been to the World Jamboree in world-wide program, a brotherhood Thailand and was delighted to meet of Scouting.

Champions for Youth helps young people stay in school

EMC News - Trenton - Students in Northumberland County have an advantage over their Hastings County counterparts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our Champions for Youth community mentoring program is only with the Kawartha Pine Ridge school board,â&#x20AC;? said Brandi Kelly, special education support staff assistant. She was with Kerri Gunter, student retention counsellor at the recent Volunteer Information Quinte fair at the Knights of Columbus Hall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We serve Murray Centennial, SmithďŹ eld, Stockdale and ENSS in Brighton,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We also go west to Clarington and north to Campbellford and Peterborough.â&#x20AC;? The program involves mentoring one on one with â&#x20AC;&#x153;at riskâ&#x20AC;? youth to keep them in school. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We ask volunteers to spend at least ten hours a month with the student in activities in the community,â&#x20AC;? Brandi explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The positive adult role model helps.â&#x20AC;? She said some students have made

poor choices and may be in trouble at school or with the law. There are 12 retention counsellors at the Peterborough base ofďŹ ce who travel to the various locations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is exclusive to our board,â&#x20AC;? Brandi noted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have expanded the program since 2007. It has been a real big success.â&#x20AC;? Volunteers are screened and must have an interview before being matched with a student of similar interests. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These are fantastic kids,â&#x20AC;? Brandi pointed out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They

just need a positive inďŹ&#x201A;uence in their lives.â&#x20AC;? The volunteers make a one-year commitment to the program, but may extend it if both parties are willing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Volunteers ďŹ nd this program very rewarding,â&#x20AC;? she added. The students are between ages 12 to 17, from Grade 6 through high school. The program also gets the participants together for events such as barbeques, visits to the zoo, games and dinners. The volunteers are

reimbursed up to $60 a month for expenses. Students can be referred to the program by police, probation, youth court justice, or school counsellors. These youth may be new to the justice system or may have been involved in less serious offences. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Their behaviour likely will

improve with intervention by a Champions for Youth retention counsellor and the support of a positive mentor,â&#x20AC;? Brandi said. Champions for Youth is built on the belief that all youth beneďŹ t from a stable, positive relationship with an adult. The program helps to improve academic success, contribute positively to so-

ciety and reduce the likelihood of further crime. A web site <www.kprschools. ca/programs/champions.php> has a listing of many community partners. For more information on the program call the administrator at 705-742-9773 or toll free at 1-877-741-4577 or email <>.

to care for their families because of the HIV/AIDS pandemic, and raised nearly $400,000 from the inaugural event in 2010. Funds from the Grandmothers to Grandmothers campaign go to African grassroots organizations working with grandmothers and the children in their care in partnership with the Stephen Lewis Foundation. While Thorne said the local group didn’t have any particular fund-raising goal themselves, she said the funds raised were only a part of what the campaign is all about. “When I think of myself as a grandmother, and I think of [African grandmothers] they’re resilient, they’re courageous,” she said. “To me this four-month walk strengthened again that invisible bond … I just feel connected. There is a rope, whether you see it or not.” For more information on the Grandmothers to Grandmothers campaign, visit their web site at <www.grandmotherscampaign. org>.

extended their walk to reach Cape Town, South Africa. “The African grannies, they walk all the time,” Thorne said. “So I thought, why not walk together?” Roughly 60 people took part in the walk this year, each putting in their steps wherever and whenever possible, and collecting donations along the way. Thorne said she walked over 1,000 kilometres herself, and added that while the walk helps raise money for Africa it also had a positive impact on those who took part. “It’s making our community healthy too,” she said. “When you think about it, 65 people combined did this, some more, some less. Even if you’re walking with a walker, you’re still walking.” Stride to Turn the Tide is an annual national walk organized by Grandmothers to Grandmothers groups as part of the Stephen Lewis Foundation in provinces all across Canada. The walk aims to recognize the vast distances African grandmothers walk in order

One day it was 40 degrees.â&#x20AC;? It was her ďŹ rst time on a camel and she felt the camels would prefer she didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ride them at all. Suzanne said the dress is very conservative but tourists can wear whatever they like, except if you are entering the mosque where women must wear a head covering and long sleeves. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Women are equal in the workforce there,â&#x20AC;? she added. The buildings were spectacular, including the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tallest building. Suzanne adds there is much emphasis on arts and culture. It is also very environmentally friendly and â&#x20AC;&#x153;very green.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;People should go,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a

fascinating place. The Arab world is not scary. There are a lot of business opportunities. Many Canadians work there.â&#x20AC;? She noted that everyone speaks English and there are signs in English and Arabic. The Chamber tour in March is $2,400 all-inclusive with air, accommodation and the tour guides for seven days through CAA Travel. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a fascinating part of the world,â&#x20AC;? she says. Suzanne notes she is not straying from her job as general manager of the Quinte West Chamber of Commerce, and is keeping her feet on the green grass of home attracting new business to the Quinte area. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I actually donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t start my job on the board of the Ontario Chamber until June 17,â&#x20AC;? she adds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s business here as usual. We are open here seven days a week now. I am looking forward to a busy tourist season.â&#x20AC;?

EMC Sports - Belleville - It’s been four weeks of frenzied track and field action at Mary-Anne Sills, and on May 30 and 31 the efforts of hundreds of student athletes culminated in the East Regional finals. On the line was a chance for OFSAA qualification and the opportunity for the athletes to test their mettle against the top athletes in the province, and when the dust had settled more than 18 Belleville athletes, from St. Theresa

Leeann Duncan of Bayside Secondary School finished ninth in women’s triple jump senior.

Secondary School, Moira Secondary School, Bayside Secondary School, Nicholson Catholic College, Quinte Christian High School, Quinte Secondary School and Centennial Secondary School all advanced to the big dance, beginning on June 6 in Oshawa. From St. Theresa, four athletes all advanced to OFSAA competition after strong showings at the East Regionals. In the men’s 800-metre run midget, Nick Salt qualified in third place over-

all with a time of 2:09.52, while schoolmate Mackenzie Roach narrowly advanced in the men’s 3,000-metre run midget with a time of 9:49.75. In men’s 100-metre hurdles midget, Ryan Ebbers claimed the second qualifying spot with a time of 14.69, and will be joined by women’s 100-metre dash finalist Skylar Helm who ran a time of 12.50. At Moira Secondary School, three individual sport athletes will be joined by the Moira men’s 4x100-metre senior relay team. Megan Brant qualified for girls pole vault midget with a height of 2.15 metres, followed by Naomi Douglas-Najem taking second spot in senior girls pole vault with a height of 2.60 metres. The final Moira athlete to qualify for OFSAA was men’s 100-metre dash intellectual winner Brandon Meredith, who finished with a time of 12.70. At Quinte Secondary School, two individual athletes will be joined by the men’s 4x400-metre relay team. Dave Taylor qualified for men’s junior discus after a throw of 43.30 metres in the final, while Nick Holden qualified in not just one, but two events at OFSAA. Holden finished first in qualifying for the men’s 800-metre run senior with a time of 1:55.75, and also finished second in the men’s 1,500-metre run with a time of 4:01.55. At Centennial High School, Lucas Fallaise continued his trail through high school

competition to take second place in the men’s 100-metre dash with a time of 10.84. Fallaise will also compete in the 200-metre after finishing second with a time of 21.75, and in the men’s high jump after finishing third with a jump of 1.90 metres. Fallaise will be joined from Centennial by Katie Svoboda, who finished fourth in women’s 400-metre dash senior. At Bayside Secondary School, Katherine Herron is poised to make a splash at OFSAA competition, finishing first in women’s triple jump and establishing a new meet record with a jump of 10.90 metres. She will be joined at OFSAA by Liam Maracek who placed third in men’s 800-metre run junior with a time of 2:03.45, Brad Davis, who qualified in third for men’s 1,500-metre run junior with a time of 4:11.24, and James Nicholas, who took fourth in men’s 800metre run senior with a time of 1:59.52. Wrapping up the remaining schools, at Quinte Christian High School, Jasmine Sweeney made her mark in the jumping competitions, taking both fourth in women’s long jump senior with a jump of 4.63 metres, while also qualifying fourth in triple jump after a jump of 10.31 metres. Finally, at Nicholson Catholic College, Alexander Phillips will be the school’s lone participant after finishing first in men’s triple jump midget with a jump of 12.25 metres.

Highway of Heroes Ride honoured by motorcycle parade By Kate Everson

EMC News - Trenton - The hills around the amphitheatre were filled with waving Canada flags on June 1 as a tribute to the fallen soldiers of the Afghanistan conflict. “This is a tribute to all those who lost lives in Afghanistan,” said Mayor John Williams at the opening ceremonies of the Heroes Highway Ride. MP Rick Norlock said they honour those who made the supreme sacrifice. MPP Rob Milligan said this means a lot to Quinte West. Wing Commander Colonel Sean Friday said many here have attended the repatriations and every year the Heroes Highway Ride has honoured them. Donations were being raised for the Wounded Warriors Canada fund and the Tom Stacey Centre for Veterans Care. Graham Hume, co-director, thanked everyone for supporting the troops. Kyra Breach, 14, from Oshawa, led the parade of flag-bearers, each accompanied by a young person with a picture of a soldier who died in Afghanistan. Kyra had seen several repatriations and raised funds for the Wounded Warriors. Trapper, founder of the CAV, Canadian Army Veterans, which helped sponsor the event this year, said it was an honour to attend. He said he has crossed the country 14 times now, looking for answers. He said everyone faces horrible days, and they need to keep their fami-

felt overwhelmed. Hundreds of motorcycles left from Whitby and Kingston that morning, converging on Centennial Park as this year’s focal point of the Heroes Highway Ride. There was a Show and Shine and live entertainment. The Parade of Remembrance was the highlight of the event, with the hills dotted with flags, as children

and adults showed their respect for the fallen. The 413 Wing Pipes and Drums piped the Parade of Remembrance into Centennial Park. Darlene Cushman, silver mother of fallen soldier Darryl Caswell, was the parade marshal. Heroes Highway Ride was started in 2009 by Lou DeVuono, who was inspired by the number of people

standing on bridges and along the roads at every repatriation along the Highway of Heroes from CFB Trenton to Toronto. On Sunday, several motorcyclists rode to Ottawa for the D-Day, National Memorial activities and trip to Beechwood Cemetery, Canada’s national military cemetery. Please turn to page 3 for more photos

“Getting to Know You” at the Pinnacle Playhouse

EMC Entertainment - Belleville The many works of Rodgers and Hammerstein have amazed and enthralled audiences for decades. Closing off this year’s season at the Pinnacle Playhouse will be the enchanting The King and I. With a large and talented cast, director Moira Nikander-Forrester brings the Siamese royal court to the stage in this 1952 Tony Award-winning musical.


Daniel Beylerian, King of Siam. Photo: Submitted

Loosely based on the novel Anna and the King, by Margaret Landon, the musical is set in the lavish 19th century court of the King of Siam. In 1861, King Mongkut wrote to his Singapore agent asking him to find a British lady to be governess to his many children. Enter Anna Leonowens, who modernizes the education of the royal children while clashing with the King in a struggle over customs and culture. Director Moira NikanderForrester says, “It is the glorious music and lyrics by Rodgers and Hammerstein that truly make this show a family favourite. The audience will recognize many popular tunes include Getting to Know You, Whistle a Happy Tune, Hello, Young Lovers, and Shall we Dance.” “Our large 37-member cast is very talented and enthusiastic ranging in age from three to seventy,” Moira continued. “The audience will recognize many BTG regulars among them, but we are very excited that a number of our lead actors are entirely new to our stage.”

Rehearsals for The King and I are in full bloom this spring at the Belleville Theatre Guild. Nikander-Forrester says, “Bringing this musical to life presents many challenges because a period piece of this sort requires costumes, hair, and makeup that are appropriate to the time and place in the world where it is set. As well, the movement of the actors and the dancers are things we are not familiar with, so much research was needed before any cutting, sewing, blocking, or choreographing could begin. Happily, everything is coming into the mix and the audience is in for a very special evening of entertainment.” Our musical director, Dave Farmer, has contributed his usual high standard of vocal direction to our cast. The songs of Rodgers and Hammerstein will echo on the BTG stage in full harmony. The show will take the stage June 6 to 23 at the Pinnacle Playhouse, with special previews on June 3 and 4. Visit the BTG web site at <www.bellevilletheatreguild. ca> to find out more about

this production, as well as our upcoming season. The theatre guild is proud to announce the five plays that comprise our 2013-2014 season, with descriptions, performance dates, and audition dates all listed on our web site. New to the stage this year will be a children’s production taking place in December. Please visit our box office for more information regarding subscriptions. Be sure to catch The King and I early—you’re sure to want to see it twice! Tickets are $22 ($10 for students) and we offer fourteen performances from June 6 to 23, including three Sunday matinees. Show time is 8 p.m. for evening performances, and 2 p.m. for matinees. Discounted tickets are available for the previews on June 3 and 4. Call the box office at 613-967-1442, or order your tickets on-line. The Belleville Theatre Guild offers elevator service right into the theatre, a barrier-free washroom, and room in the front row for wheelchairs and other mobility devices. See you at the Pinnacle Playhouse.

EMC Lifestyles - During the Middle Ages, Ghent was larger than London, Berlin, Moscow, and Vienna. It was actually the second largest city in all of Europe (Paris was #1), and the flourishing wool industry had established it as a wealthy and politically important destination. Today, the beautiful city of Ghent, which is located at the confluence of the Scheldt and Lys Rivers, is a relatively small city, with about a quarter of a million inhabitants, but its many well preserved historic buildings and towers have led to its nickname: “Medieval Manhattan.” I visited Belgium’s “Medieval Manhattan” on my last European adventure trek, and I was certainly impressed by its historic architecture. I took a walking tour in the city centre (with guide Hedwig), and I was especially impressed by the view from St. Michael’s Bridge, for I discovered it was one of the very best vantage points from which to enjoy Ghent’s medieval buildings and skyline. I later discovered that the view from here at night, with all the lights on, was even more magical. On our walking tour, we visited such points of interest as the city’s renowned Cloth Hall (dating from 1425) and its Belfry (completed in 1380). The clock tower, topped with a copper dragon, still holds a carillon with the bells that have rung for centuries—and it now has an elevator that transports visitors to an upper gallery for a fantastic panoramic view of the city centre. We also found that another great view of the city centre was available from the ramparts of Gravensteen, the Castle of the Counts, built in 1180, an imposing castle located right in the downtown core. We strolled past several well-preserved 16th century guild houses, and through Prinsenhof, the residence of the Counts of Flanders, where Charles V was born. We also visited St. Nicholas

Church, one of the city’s I also discovered some interesting oldest and most prominent shops while exploring Ghent, including landmarks (begun in the early Tierenteyn-Verlent (where fine and 13th century) and St. Bavo spicy mustards have been created and Cathedral, where Charles V sold since 1818), Daskalides (which was baptized; it’s the oldest has sold mouth-watering Belgian parish church in Ghent, where chocolate, including scrumptious such artistic masterpieces as home-made pralines, made in a nearby “The Adoration of the Mystic factory since the early part of the 20th Lamb” and “Saint Bavo century), and Temmerman (an oldEnters the Convent at Ghent” fashioned sweet shop that has been run are located. Furthermore, we by the same family of confectioners This imposing castle, Gravensteen, is located right in the downtown core. visited the ruins of the former for eight generations). St. Bavo Abbey (which was A short walk from my hotel, across built back in the 7th century the bridge, brought me to Belgaqueen, and destroyed by Charles V in a very trendy restaurant that’s housed the 16th century and the ruins in what used to be a grain storehouse of St. Peter’s Abbey with its in the 13th century; here I had a very vineyard, refectory, gallery nice evening meal while gazing out of cloisters, and special the window at the illuminated historic exhibitions. buildings. We also checked out the Although I believe a guided Opera House, the Old Fish walking tour is the very best way to Market (which now houses be introduced to a new city, Ghent the tourism office), the Great also offers some very interesting boat Butchers’ Hall (dating to the cruises which provide a different 15th century), the Vleeshuis (a perspective of this historic and long, medieval covered meat vibrant destination.

Age no barrier to putting on the Ritz for bodybuilder By John Campbell

EMC News - Warkworth At 72, Alec Dewdney is an old dude but heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fitter than most people half his age. Active all his life, racing dinghies, cross-country skiing, gardening and, more recently, sailboarding, Dewdney began working out about 15 years ago when he and his wife, Sue, who has multiple sclerosis, joined the YMCA in Cobourg so she could use the pool. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I knew I was going to need to maintain my strength as I got older to be able to continue to help Sue,â&#x20AC;? he said. That remains his primary goal but â&#x20AC;&#x153;the good feeling of being fit and strongâ&#x20AC;? made him receptive to an invitation by personal trainer Dave Avery to consider taking up bodybuilding. Under his guidance, Dewdney entered a Fitness Athletes Models and Entertainment (FAME) competition in Cobourg in 2009 that Avery used to stage each year and he placed first in the super grandmaster class for entrants over 60. He then went to the FAME world championships in Montreal the same year and came in second but â&#x20AC;&#x153;what was more rewardingâ&#x20AC;? was finishing fifth in the

open competition against much younger rivals. Since then Dewdney has tacked on a few more firsts at Cobourg as well as a pair of number one rankings at the international level, in Hamilton and Las Vegas (where he dethroned the seven-time world super grand master champion from Quebec). The field of competitors is a modest one in his age group, ranging anywhere from one to seven rivals. There are two rounds in bodybuilding. The first is a â&#x20AC;&#x153;bit of a meat marketâ&#x20AC;? with competitors simultaneously striking ten compulsory poses to show off their physique. In the second, they perform individual 90-second routines theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve devised to music. For his very first one, he â&#x20AC;&#x153;shocked everybody by having some of the gorgeous fitness models come out on stage with me as my â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;California Girls,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? he said. This year in Cobourg, at the Ontario Natural Championships, sanctioned by the International Natural Bodybuilding Association (INBA), Dewdney did â&#x20AC;&#x153;Putting on the Ritz,â&#x20AC;? complete with top hat, cane, spats, white gloves and collar, and shorts. He placed first and will

head to San Diego in November for the INBA Natural Olympia. The drug testing is very strict, Dewdney said, and cheaters are stripped of titles, banned for life from future competitions, and enshrined in a Hall of Shame kept on the INBA web site. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t quite understand why people would want to use chemicals because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not what you achieved for yourself,â&#x20AC;? Dewdney said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what the chemicals have done for you.â&#x20AC;? The steroids make you bigger but â&#x20AC;&#x153;that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t necessarily mean youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re strongerâ&#x20AC;? and using them â&#x20AC;&#x153;is so dangerous.â&#x20AC;?

Bodybuilding â&#x20AC;&#x153;is a lot of fun [and] you meet a lot of really interesting people â&#x20AC;Ś from all walks of life,â&#x20AC;? Dewdney said. Wearing the â&#x20AC;&#x153;very skimpyâ&#x20AC;? posing costume â&#x20AC;&#x153;was a little unnervingâ&#x20AC;? the first time, he said, but now â&#x20AC;&#x153;you just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even think about it.â&#x20AC;? Alec Dewdney shows no signs of slowing down at age 72, having taken up Dewdney worked 19 years for the bodybuilding late in life and been rewarded with several firsts for his efIndustrial Accident Prevention Asso- forts, including this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s competition at Cobourg.

The Good Earth:

EMC Lifestyles - Gentle Reader, this is the month of leaf blemishes. Lots of moisture, humidity and warm temperatures provide an ideal environment for their proliferation. The good news is that spots on leaves seldom presage the plantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s demise. The bad news is actually two-fold.

 By Sheila Wray Gregoire

EMC Lifestyles - There is a point in time, often in a doctorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office, when life suddenly grows smaller. You realize you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do many of the things you loved and took for granted. Your body is growing older, and the life stretched out before you, which was once filled with possibilities, now seems far more plagued with problems. Yet this point in time is coming far later today. Part of this is thanks to medical breakthroughs; yet I think expectations have also played a part. My grandmother was once asked to leave school so that she could care for â&#x20AC;&#x153;a woman of a certain ageâ&#x20AC;? as she

went through â&#x20AC;&#x153;the change.â&#x20AC;? Decline was expected to come at fifty, and people seemed to relish the chance to add some drama to the process. Now we push it off as long as possible, and some of us even seem to avoid decline altogether. This week I threw a seventieth surprise birthday party for my mother. The fact that she was actually surprised, and didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t put two and two together until she was physically inside the banquet centre (and not just driving into the banquet centre) is perhaps evidence that she is not as sharp as she once was. Since I pulled off something similar 20 years ago, though, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not sure you can attribute this to age. Nevertheless, one of the thrilling aspects of planning the party was tracking down everyone to invite. My mother has a multitude of friends, and they are all very different. Some are young, like 16-year-old Liam who accompanied her on a missions trip to Kenya last summer; and some are much older, like the university friends she still keeps in contact with. Some she worked with; some she knits with; some she worships with. So many of the party-goers were close friends of hers, and yet they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know each other because she floats through so

many different circles. Her world is big. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always. In the early 1970s, after a difficult marriage breakup, her world looked small. It was reduced to figuring out how to support a young child and keep going, day by day. In the 1980s, cancer struck. And yet my mother began to see each day as a new possibility, and each person she met as a gift. When she finally retired a year or so ago, she did so because her volunteer work was taking up too much time, and she really needed more room for it. She didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t relax; she simply went bigger. And it brought much joy. Thinking of this reminds me of another woman I know, now in her midseventies, who had to quit teaching at 65. She was rather perturbed about it, because she loved teaching. When

swimming at the YMCA one day, she was offered a job. So she trained for her lifeguarding qualifications, and began teaching swimming. Bev taught my own girls when they were small; today they teach side by side with her. A few months ago when Bev recertified, she passed the timed swim again. Bevâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get smaller; it got bigger, too. Retirement was once thought of as a chance to give back to yourself. You could relax, and take things easy, and revel in oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s accomplishments. For many, that seems too small a dream. We search for significance, and joy, and purpose, and that does not have to end when one comes to the end of oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s career. On the contrary, for many itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just the beginning.

Virus: described as a complex collection of molecules or a simple organism. Viruses have many of the components of â&#x20AC;&#x153;lifeâ&#x20AC;? but not all of them. Viruses work inside the cell structure and are spread by vectors (usually insects such as aphids and thrips or even seeds). One of the interesting signs of a virus on a leaf is a shot-hole. When the plant detects a virus (who knows how?) it surrounds the infected cell with dead cells; in other words it sacrifices living tissue in order to contain the spread. Once the cells are dead, they fall off the leaf leaving a hole. GR, there are millions of viruses and the physical symptoms that we see can be just as numerous. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re only looking at leaf spots, remember. Chemical control is not even an illusion. Cleanliness is the best response as is avoiding certain cultivars known to be susceptible.

in two primary fashions: air and water. The latter occurs in the spring as falling raindrops land on infected litter (last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leaves that you didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t rake up) splashing the spores higher and higher up on the plant. If your rose develops black spot, note that the lower leaves are the first to show the symptoms; with larger plants such as apple trees, look on the windward side. Management is deceptively simple. Clean up litter in the fall and, during the growing season, create as hostile an environment as possible. Wettable sulphur is the best start and then you can follow up with an alternating regimen of two mixes. One is powdered milk and water (acid) and the other is baking soda and water (base.) By alternating the pH on the surface of the leaf, the fungus is put into adapt mode. You can check the archives of this newspaper or go on-line to get the program.

reports that lindens are sensitive to the herbicide dicamba and break out in a â&#x20AC;&#x153;rash.â&#x20AC;? Dicamba is a Class 4 pesticide with restricted use in Ontario.

Fungus: for our purposes, organisms that reproduce by spores (a mushroom is a gigantic fungus, yeast is a smaller one) and feed on decomposing plant material. What makes them undesirable is that they excrete â&#x20AC;&#x153;acidsâ&#x20AC;? that break down living material, such as leaf cells and then chow down on the rotting results. They are noticed when they â&#x20AC;&#x153;appearâ&#x20AC;? as black spots on leaves.

The first bit is that these spots detract from the â&#x20AC;&#x153;beautyâ&#x20AC;? of the presentation. The second bit is that almost every leaf on every flower, shrub and tree on your estate harbours some potential spot-causing agent. Remove the word â&#x20AC;&#x153;controlâ&#x20AC;? from your horticultural lexicon and insert â&#x20AC;&#x153;management.â&#x20AC;? The concept of control is an illusion that, when combined with an unrealistic desire for presentation perfection of every flower, shrub and tree on your estate, will leave you feeling with â&#x20AC;&#x153;â&#x20AC;Ś what you [sic] most enjoy contented least.â&#x20AC;? And that is not what gardening is about. A caution, GR: massive text books have been written about this topic, there is no way a wee column such as this can cover everything.

doc at 76 Durham Street south since 1996, with other locations in Trenton and Tweed. 
The youth centres provide various programs and offer a daily lunch program. The Madoc centre has a monthly coffee house, a weekly open mike session and after school program.
 In 2003 MacAlister organized a Christian-based alternative to the drug and alcohol ridden Punk Rock era. “Monkfest was formed to provide an opportunity for young people to play their own music in a safe place,” MacAlister says. “It’s a venue where everyone is respected, free of intimidation, profanity, threats and judgement.”
 This year a mini-Monkfest was to be held at the St. Francis farm, a few kilometres southwest of town. The threat of rain brought the gath-

ering into the market square. In the lineup of entertainers were Vivian Fortier, a local resident, MacAlister, and Murray Black who runs the Trenton location. Recording artist Carey B. Grant came in from Ottawa to play some tunes from his three CDs, including Free to Fly. His work can be found on ITunes and Amazon. The last two performances pounded the town with heavy punk sounds by Inhale Marie of Trenton, and With Blood Drenched Hands from Kingston, a title, band members say refers to “hard working hands.” These young people and their music gave messages of hope in Christian values. 
Mitch Irvine, of Inhale Marie, said Foundations in Trenton kept him off the street and free from drugs. At the age of 24, his eyes are bright, and he is

still playing his Christian punk sound. 
 MacAlister was pleased to reconnect with individuals who spent time at Foundations when they were younger. Sean Milligan, of Madoc, said Foundations made “a huge difference” in his life. Now the father of two young boys, he credits Foundations with keeping him off the streets and out of jail. “I had someplace good to go and didn’t hang out at the arcade.”
 Brad Monkman said, for him, “Foundations is a gathering place where you can feel welcome, and always have a hot meal.”

Reasons to include more dairy in your diet A healthy diet can improve quality of life and reduce a personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s risk of developing disease or other negative health conditions. For example, a diet rich in fruits and vegetables can boost the immune system and promote cardiovascular health, lowering your risk of heart disease in the process. While the beneďŹ ts of including fruits and vegetables in your diet are widely known, the medical beneďŹ ts of dairy are often overlooked. The following are a handful of ways that dairy products like low-fat milk, cottage cheese and yogurt can make a nutritious and beneďŹ cial addition

to your diet. â&#x20AC;˘ Dairy packs a protein- and calcium-laden punch. One cup of nonfat yogurt can provide as much as onethird of your daily recommended calcium intake and nearly 20 percent of your daily recommended protein intake. Though dairy products like ice cream donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pack the same nutritious punch as yogurt, healthier fare like reduced-fat cheese and skim milk can go a long way toward meeting your daily intake of protein and calcium. â&#x20AC;˘ Dairy is a great source of vitamin D. In addition to providing sufďŹ cient calcium and protein, dairy also helps

men, women and children boost their vitamin D. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s especially important in the winter months when people tend to get less exposure to the sun. Exposure to the sun is a natural way to boost your vitamin D, but the shorter days and colder weather of winter can make it hard to get sufďŹ cient vitamin D during that time of year. Dairy products like lowfat milk can boost your vitamin D, which can improve your bone health and, according to recent research, might help reduce your cancer risk. â&#x20AC;˘ Dairy may help lower your blood pressure. Men and women with high blood pressure might beneďŹ t from

Seniors who consume dairy to improve their bone density should know that a recent study from researchers at the Institute for Aging Research found that not all dairy products are equal when it comes to improving bone density. While milk and yogurt were linked to higher bone mineral density, dairy products like cream and ice cream contain less protein, calcium and vitamin D and more fat and sugar than yogurt and milk, and these products may actually be associated with lower bone mineral density. Though there are many ways men and women can improve their overall health, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to consider the nutritional value of dairy when making any alterations to your diet.

Calcium and vitamin D are frequently touted for their ability to improve bone health. While consuming foods rich in vitamin D and calcium is especially important for aging women, both vitamin D and calcium also help to keep the body strong and vital at any age. Calcium and vitamin D help ďŹ ght bone loss, and not just in older women. Younger, active women need it to prevent stress fractures and other bone injuries. Calcium is also needed for other parts of the body. The National Institutes of Health Osteoporosis and Related Bone Diseases National Resource Center says calcium is necessary for the heart, muscles and nerves to function properly. It also helps blood to clot. Furthermore, pregnant women need ample calcium in their diets in order to supply calcium to a growing fetus. If a pregnant woman does not get enough calcium through diet, the baby will draw it from Momâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own bones, threatening the motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health while leading to bone fragility and increasing her risk of fractures. Calcium and vitamin D work in conjunction. Although a balanced diet may provide enough calcium, many times high levels of salt and protein in oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s diet can increase calcium excretion through the kidneys. Also, people who have an intolerance to lactose may not be getting the calcium they need. Vitamin D is necessary for the body to absorb calcium. Without vitamin D, a woman cannot produce enough calcitriol, impairing calcium absorption from her diet. In turn, the body will take calcium from stores in existing bone, weakening them and preventing the formation of strong, new bone. Women who may have been deďŹ cient in vitamin D and calcium can develop osteoporosis and other bone-loss conditions as they age. Thanks to osteoporosis, half of all women over the age of 50 will have a fracture of the hip, wrist, or vertebra during their lifetime. In order to maintain bone and body health, there are certain dietary intake recommendations regarding calcium and vitamin D. Adults under age 50 should consume between 1,000 and 1,300 milligrams of calcium and roughly 600 IU of vitamin D daily. Calcium can be found in dairy products as well as

REPORTS FOR JUNE 2013 I Pledge: My Head to clearer thinking, My Heart to greater loyalty, My Hands to larger service. My Health for better living, for my club, my community and my country.â&#x20AC;?

Our 4-H Dairy Calf Clubs explore many different topics. They could be having meetings on keeping their calf healthy, free from diseases and making things better for their calf. They could have meetings on giving their calf a good start and recording their growth. They could be reviewing the breeding and reproductive systems and organs or they could be studying the different breeding options. Fitting and showing is the main activity for our 4-H Dairy Calf Clubs. When the members are selecting their 4-H project animal there are several things that the 4=H member must consider:

Size â&#x20AC;&#x201C; selecting an animal that is appropriate for your size and is well grown for its age. In showmanship, you will have a more awkward appearance showing an animal that is too small for you, but, you might have trouble controlling an animal that is too large for you to handle. Registered or Grade â&#x20AC;&#x201C; while it is not necessary for a 4-H project animals to be registered at the local level, many shows require animals to be registered as a specific percentage of purity. Temperament â&#x20AC;&#x201C; You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expect an untrained animal to lead perfectly, after

pra cticing once or twice, but animals with a gentler disposition will be easier to work with than animals that are less docile. Preparing their calf for the show is just one component of dairy showmanship. The memberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s personal poise, alertness and neatness are also important in the show ring. They must keep an eye on their animal and be aware of the position of the judge at all times and respond quickly to requests from the judge. Be courteous and a good sport at all times. Members are schooled that competing to win is healthy - but not if it means jeopardizing morals and the integrity of animal health.

As 4-H members, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to take responsibility for our actions and participate in shows in an ethical manner. How did we place? What can we do to show our calf better?

A senior member â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Sarah Huffman of Hastings County 4-H took it upon herself to find two leaders to start a Dairy Management Club. This club is to explore the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Taking Care of Businessâ&#x20AC;? side of Dairy Farms. The 4-H members will be exploring the best possible options for housing and equipment to provide a healthy environment for both cattle and the farm as well as milk production and marketing and financial record keeping. Motto: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Learn to do by Doingâ&#x20AC;?

Confirmation â&#x20AC;&#x201C; analyzing the confirmation of potential show animals is an important part of showing. It is hard to be successful if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pick the most correct animals to show!

Trottier fiddling at Strawberry Spectacular Trottier. Trottier, who has performed at the museum once in the past along with her band The Mushy Peas, will be joined by Andy Thompson and Jerry Clancy for the upcoming performance. “We’re really thrilled,” Grotek says of Trottier’s return. “I think it’s going to be an amazing day.” Along with lunch and dessert and the afternoon performance, there are also eight buildings of displays and exhibits featuring items dating to the early days of the county’s agricultural past. And Grotek adds there will be other special activities and opportunities for discovery. Strawberry Spectacular runs from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. on June 23. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children (free if under age five). The museum is open throughout the summer with regular and special activities scheduled. Staff are also preparing for the upcoming Fibre Fest, which will feature some of the area’s finest fibre artists and their work as well as demonstrations and a “learning Edison (left) and Ethan Wharram of Trenton found a Blanding’s turtle while visiting corner.” Fibre Fest runs Farmtown Park last weekend. The species, identified by museum officials, is listed as from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on July 7 where regular admisthreatened in eastern Ontario. sion charges apply. By Richard Turtle

EMC News - Stirling - There will be a lot more than just strawberries on offer at the upcoming Strawberry Spectacular at Farmtown Park on June 23.

Museum Manager Margaret Grotek says this year’s Sunday event will provide plenty of activities for the whole family along with live entertainment by Kingston fiddle player Kelli

And sometimes there can be special surprises. For Edison and Ethan Wharram, who were visiting the museum last weekend with family, it was a little livelier than expected. In the parking lot outside, the duo discovered a Blanding’s turtle, which is listed as endangered

or threatened in its Canadian habitat that ranges from Ontario to the east coast. Museum officials and volunteers who identified the creature, say it has arrived at the door on previous occasions. Considered a medium sized turtle and measuring about 20

centimetres in total length, the Blanding’s is most easily recognizable by its bright yellow throat. For further information on Farmtown Park or any of its programs, visit <> or telephone 613395-0015.

Plowing Match marks 25 years in August By Richard Turtle

mittee President Jim Gunning says much of the preparation work has already been done for the August show and 2013, marking the 25th anniversary of the annual agricultural event, is shaping up to be an exceptional one. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Things are going really well,â&#x20AC;? Gunning says

of lead-up to the show, this year held just outside the village on Fairground Road and hosted by Doug Parr and Bruce Philp. The list of exhibitors has topped 300 and, weather permitting, Gunning says organizers are hopeful the August 21 and 22 show will approach or even surpass record attendance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our exhibitors are up, our displays are up and our demos are up,â&#x20AC;? Gunning says of confirmed show participants, adding the 25th anniversary offers further cause for celebration. And while the show has always offered the latest in tools and practices, the history is never far away,

he says. Gunning begins his two-year term as president, taking over the post from George Sandercock, with many years of show experience behind him, but admits the planning and preparation has become second nature to organizers, many of whom have been involved since the first show in 1988. The annual show that began with an exhibitors list in the dozens has also grown a significant reputation throughout the province, he adds, and is now widely known as the premier agricultural show in eastern Ontario. The Wednesday-Thursday event is both an agri-

cultural exhibition and an educational tool, organizers say, providing an opportunity for increased industry awareness both for farmers and the general public. Featuring displays and demonstrations of the latest in farming technology alongside some of the oldest operating machines in existence, as well as live entertainment, family activities, craft workshops and sales, livestock exhibits and the various plowing matches themselves, the Hastings County Plowing Match and Farm Show now routinely draws more than 15,000 visitors. And Gunning says while the weather always plays a key role in attendance figures, expectations are high this year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a few new things happening so it just keeps expanding,â&#x20AC;? he says. Along with ongoing demonstrations and workshops within the showâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tent City, plowing competitions are planned throughout the show for various tractor classes as well as the antique and horse-

Centre Hastings opens another information centre

By Diane Sherman

EMC News - Madoc - The Municipality of Centre Hastings opens another tourist information centre Friday, June 7, just east of the junction of Highways 7 and 62. The new location is in addition to an information centre at the Centre Hastings park on Durham Street south where the skate park and splash pad are located. Municipal employee Shannon Burke is managing the booth with volunteer help from local

residents Janet Armstrong and Deanne Baldwin. The booth is scheduled to be open Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from noon until six p.m. throughout summer tourist season and closing during the winter months. The hut-like structure was built by Grade 12 students of the Renovation and Restoration class of Centre Hastings Secondary School under direction of instructor Brad Olsen. Monday they were about to

put the information sign onto the structure. Deputy-reeve Tom Simpson said the Economic Development Committee determined last year, that a location on the Trans Canada route would be good for local business. “We immediately asked if the high school class would take on the project,” he said. Bob Doyle, proprietor of the Madoc McDonald’s restaurant, donated use of the land at the northeast side of the crossroads.

Grade 12 CHSS students of the Renovation and Restoration class gathered June 3 at the tourist booth they built for the Municipality of Centre Hastings. Up front is teacher Brad Olsen with Joshua Fenton, Gabriel Hall, Roger Vanattan and Steve Moreau. In behind are Nick Reimer, Josh Nicholson, Ryan Davis, Colton McKinnon and Lawrence McFaul, with Bob Doyle and Deputy-reeve Tom Simpson. In the centre are Janet Armstrong, Shannon Burke and Deanne Baldwin. Photo: Diane Sherman
