EMC News - Quinte West - Brandon Ashmore of the Canadian Beverage Association and John Challinor from Nestle Waters Canada were a delegation to council Monday night regarding the Blue Communities Project. “We want to highlight key facts and figures about the bottled water industry,” Ashmore said. Council had earlier rejected a proposal from Robyn Hamlyn to become a Blue Community which involved banning the sale of bottled water in municipal facilities and at municipal events. “The Blue Communities Project resolution is the latest anti-bottled water initiative from the council and CUPE who have developed various political campaigns over the last eight years to discredit our industry,” John Challinor said, “our 13,000 employees across Canada, some of who live in your region, and our products and services.” Challinor said the Blue Communities Project is a well-intentioned but misguided attack on the bottled water industry. “It is like a Trojan horse-like treatise developed solely to encourage Canadian municipalities to ban the sale of bottled water in their facilities under the guise of human rights and infrastructure management,” he said. “The Blue Communities Please see “Council” on page 3

EMC News - Quinte West - The city has entered into an agreement with Mark Tripp Limited for the placement of a metal mural for use as fascia on property located at 70-72 Dundas Street West in downtown Trenton. “The Economic Development and Revitalization Committee recommended the approval of the downtown mural design,” reports Virginia LaTour, deputy city clerk. The agreement is that installation occur no later than July 31, 2013. The owner contribution of $600 is due no later than ten days after the installation of the mural. The city is responsible for maintenance as mural is city property. There must be a 30-day notice to the city in the event of rebuild or sale of the property. The cost of the mural is about $3,700 to be taken from the Economic Development budget. “The location of the mural in downtown Trenton will add considerable visual appeal along Dundas Street West,” LaTour comments.

Mystery of the Big Building comes to light EMC News - Quinte West - What’s big, really big and under wraps? It used to be that mega-building project in the North Murray Industrial Park. Now the secret is out. McKesson Canada is building a 520,000-square-foot distribution centre to be completed by the spring of 2014. “This will be a huge economic boost to our area,” said Mayor John Williams. “There will new jobs and spin-offs. This is the largest industrial facility in the Quinte region.” This is the largest distribution centre McKesson owns in Canada.

The secret has been well kept for months, under the strict advisement of the company, with much speculation by the public about the nature of the building. McKesson Canada supplies health care products to pharmacies, hospitals, clinics and other health care institutions. The company already operates a smaller distribution centre at 400 Sidney Street, as well as centres in Mississauga, Brampton, Ottawa and Chatham, with an estimated loss of 190 jobs with resources moving to the new Quinte West site. For over 100 years, McKesson Canada has been the logistics and

distribution leader in the Canadian healthcare sector. “We connect manufacturers and pharmacies with the very best supply solutions to ensure that branded, generic and over-the-counter pharmaceuticals and products reach our pharmacy clients and their patients,” says president Nick Loporcaro. “The Canadian healthcare sector has grown tremendously in 100 years and so has McKesson Canada. We offer a complete range of products and solutions, including integrated technology and information solutions to assist industry professionals who are concerned with safe-

at ty, efficiency and having immediate access to key information. Some of these solutions include automation products and information solutions. “McKesson Canada also re13794 County Road 2, Colborne, Ontario sponds to the unique challenges of 905-355-2000 health practitioners and providers July 27 – 28, 2013 with clinical and business solutions such as clinical and administrative 10 am to 5 pm software applications and decision FREE GIFT TO THE FIRST 50 VISITORS, DRAWS, CONTESTS Pe Pe support tools to further improve their efficiency and patient care.

project is a political campaign, not an environmental campaign.” Over the last five years, almost 140 municipalities, school boards, colleges and universities and provincial governments have formally rejected motions by CUPE to ban the sale of bottled water in their facilities, but 33 municipalities, five school boards and 13 colleges and universities approved the bans. “Banning bottled water will not result in increased consumption of tap water, nor will it reduce the amount of plastic beverage bottle litter,” Challinor said. “All it does is replace one piece of plastic with another piece of plastic.” He noted that vending machines offer bottled nutritionally deficient beverages

“The mural will be of high quality and will reflect a 3D image appearance.” The mural will be made of aluminum panels fastened onto plywood at the front of the building. It will be movable if required to another location. It was noted this is a separate mural from the one planned for the side of the Community Policing Building, also on Dundas Street West. The Photo Mosaic Mural is a collaboration of photographs submitted by residents and businesses in Quinte West to be woven into a historical design on the wall. Organizers are still collecting photographs but time is running out. Information on that mural “for the people, by the people” is available at 613-394-1333 or <trentportmural@gmail. com> in Trenton.

as well as water. “The fact of the matter is that bottled water is proving to be particularly helpful at a time when the incidence of obesity and diabetes are on a significant increase amongst youngest Canadians born after 2000,” he said. “Almost 30 per cent of Canadian children are overweight or obese, are susceptible to diabetes and may be the first generation of Canadians whose life expectancy is shorter than that of their parents.” Challinor said there isn’t another portable beverage that provides the health and wellness that bottled water does. He noted that almost 80 per cent of plastic beverage contain-

ers, including bottled water, were recycled in Trenton last year, almost 70 per cent across Canada. Plastic beverage containers account for one fifth of one per cent of the waste stream. “The mythology about bottled water trotted out by some in the environmental activist movement and repeated by some well-meaning but misguided citizens doesn’t stand up to critical analysis,” Challinor said. “We believe that Quinte West council should support continued freedom of choice by not banning the sale of bottled water in its facilities.” Mayor John Williams said Nestle is a big industry in Quinte West. Sally Freeman said she would rather drink water than

Challinor said, “There is no damage to health in the heat as there is no BPA in the plastic and no leachate.” Doug Whitney asked if it was okay to refill the plastic bottle with tap water. Challinor said the bottle might carry bacteria and should not be reused. Whitney asked if they could freeze the water in the golf bag. Challinor said that would separate the calcium in the bottom and was not recommended. Mayor Williams asked Whitney if he was sure it was water he was drinking or vodka. Council made no decision on the Blue Communities proposal.

City CAO leaving for greener fields in Cambridge By Kate Everson

EMC News - Quinte West - CAO Gary Dyke is leaving this city for the bright lights of Cambridge as of August 2. “I have enjoyed being CAO here for the past five years,” said Dyke at council Monday night. “I have been here 17 years since pre-amalgamation. It was not an easy decision, but it was an opportunity to move forward in my career. “Thanks to council for trusting in me in this role.” Mayor John Williams said it was a pleasure working close with Gary. “We got along pretty well,” he said. “But we will be looking for someone who plays better golf.” He added the city is thankful for the hard work, dedication and inroads that

Gary has made. “He’s provided us great leadership,” he said. Councillors wished Gary well in his new job. “We wish you the best,” said Jim Alyea. “It’s been great working with you.” Terry Cassidy added, “You left a mark on Quinte West.” Sally Freeman said Cambridge is an up-and-coming city and kudos to Gary for getting that position. She said he helped councillors get their way through a lot of situations. “We’ll miss you,” she said. Ron Hamilton thanked Gary who helped set up the first planning authority in the city. Mayor Williams noted there will be a farewell party for Gary at the end of the month. This was Gary’s last council meeting in Quinte West.

Gravel pit expansion proposed for Sidney By Kate Everson

EMC News - Quinte West – An amendment to an Aggregate Holding Zone will permit the expansion of an existing sand and gravel pit operation on Concession #6 Sidney ward. “It is recommended the zoning amendment be approved,” says area planner Scott Pordham. The lands owned by Suzanne Smith are about 39.6 hectares (98 acres) in area. The portion of land subject to the amendment is about 5.1 hectares (12.6 acres) in area, with access from Fish and Game Club Road, former Township of

Sidney. The subject lands are currently zoned AG(H). The amendment would remove the Holding H symbol to permit the expansion of the pit. “The agent has also submitted an application to the Ministry of Natural Resources under the Aggregate Resources Act to license the proposed expansion,” Pordham reports. The land subject to the application is a large rural lot located on the north side of Fish and Game Club Road. The lands include an existing farm located at the south end of the property and an existing aggregate operation at the

north end. The aggregate operation is isolated from the farm, road and adjacent properties by a combination of woods and elevation changes. The lands to the east are also occupied in part by an existing aggregate operation “The expanded aggregate operation will be set back about 600 metres and appear to be buffered from nearby sensitive areas,” Pordham said. The agent, MHBC Planning, submitted a Natural Environment Report and Environmental Impact Statement to the city. The documents support the expansion of an existing aggregate operation. “Various con-

cerns were identified by were addressed through further investigation and consultation,” Pordham added. The lands are designated Rural on the Quinte West Official Plan. An Aggregate designation and Area of Natural and Scientific Interest (ANSI) designation were also identified for the subject lands. “Development and site alteration is permitted in or adjacent to ANSIs where it has been demonstrated through pre-consultation with the municipality or completion of the Environmental Impact Study that there will be no negative impact on natural features or their ecological functions,” Pordham explains.

and Lower Trent Conservation both recommended an assessment of woodlands and the impacts on them. A site meeting led to various revisions. The Provincial Policy Statement for Mineral Aggregate Resources states that as much of the mineral aggregate resource as is realistically possible shall be made available as close to markets as possible. Pordham noted the original site was licensed in 1978 by Sidney Township and again in 1998 by the city of Quinte West. “Planning staff are satisfied that this zoning bylaw amendment meets the interest of the Provincial Policy Statement, City of Quinte West Official Plan and the Sidney Ward Zoning Bylaw,” Pordham said.

My past two years at the head of the herd have been both a true honour and privilege. My family and I will truly miss everyone at 429 (T) Squadron.” As he officially took command of the Squadron from the former CO, Lieutenant-Colonel Maisonneuve said he is “looking forward to leading a fine group of individuals doing extraordinary things for Canada every day with a great aircraft.” Lieutenant-Colonel Maisonneuve hails from St. Isidore, Ontario. He joined the Canadian Armed Forces in 1986 and graduated from Collège militaire royal (CMR) in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, in 1991. After receiving his pilot wings, he was assigned to 436 (T) Squadron, 8 Wing/CFB Trenton, where he flew the CC-130 Hercules transport aircraft. Having acquired over 7,400 combined hours on the CC-130 Hercules, CC-144 Challenger and the CC-177 Globemaster III aircraft, he has flown basic and advanced tactical airlift missions, transported heads of state and dignitaries, and in 2001, was one of two Canadians selected to fly the Globemaster on exchange with the United States Air Force (USAF). His operational experience includes flying tours with 412 (Transport) Squadron in Ottawa, the USAF’s 8 Airlift Squadron, McChord AFB, Washington, and 429 (Transport) Squadron. Throughout his career, he has served as an instructor, evaluator, and chief pilot at multiple locations.

I was greeted by Mr. Smith (the examiner) with, “Ah, you must be Cliff’s boy.” It seems that Mr. Smith and my father were buddies and members of the local Legion. After discussing the first world war for some time, Mr. Smith asked if I would mind if we returned a few empties to the beer store while we were doing my test so we carried out three 24s and a 12-pack to the car. When we arrived at the car and we were ready to go, Mr. Smith observed that I was parked in a no parking zone and that wasn’t a very good start so I thought I had failed the test right there. We then went straight to the beer store with no hand signals, no parallel parking or any discussion of the rules of the road where Mr. Smith exchanged his empties for three full 24s and a 12-pack and returned immediately to his office where we parked in the no parking zone and completed the paper work. I was told that I did fine and say hello to your father. Jack Knowles, Brighton


OPINION

Spies and whistle-blowers

EMC Editorial - Edward Snowden, a former contractor to the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency, has been trapped in the transit lounge of Sheremetyevo airport in Moscow for the past two weeks, while the United States government strives mightily to get him back in its clutches. Last week it even arranged for the plane flying Bolivian President Eve Morales home from Moscow to be diverted to Vienna and searched, mistakenly believing Gwynne Dyer that Snowden was aboard. Former U.S. army intelligence analyst Bradley Manning is already in the U.S. government’s clutches. Having endured 1,100 days of solitary confinement, he is now on trial for “aiding the enemy” by passing a quarter-million U.S. embassy messages, Afghanistan and Iraq war logs, detainee assessments from Guantanamo and videos of U.S. attacks in Afghanistan and Iraq to the WikiLeaks web site. These two American whistle-blowers have a lot in common. They are both young idealists who had access to the inner workings of the U.S. “security community,” and were appalled by what they learned. Their intentions were good, but their fate may be harsh. (Bradley faces life in prison without parole.) And there is one big difference between them. Bradley, the more naive of the two, was shocked by facts that more experienced observers take for granted: that governments, including the U.S. government, routinely lie to their citizens, their allies, and the world, and that armies at war, including the U.S. army, sometimes commit terrible crimes. Edward Snowden, on the other hand, has exposed something that even experienced observers did NOT take for granted: that the U.S. government has created a massive apparatus for discovering everybody else’s secrets. Under the cover of the “war on terror,” it has been secretly trawling the telecommunications networks of the whole world for information not just on terrorism, but on any other subject that affects its interests. Never mind the hypocrisy of this. (American secrets are sacred, but the United States has the right to know everybody else’s.) It’s the sheer scale and brazen arrogance of the operation that are so stunning. Exhibit A is the PRISM program, whose very existence was a secret until Snowden spilled the beans early last month. This program, run by the National Security Agency, began in 2007. It collects data from all nine major American Internet giants: Microsoft, Apple, Facebook, Google, Skype, Yahoo, etc., and they are not allowed to reveal the fact that they are passing the data to the U.S. government.

In the first instance, it’s mostly traffic analysis: who is talking to whom? But if the traffic pattern sparks the NSA’s interest (or if the U.S. government wants to know the content of the messages for other reasons), then the spies can read the actual messages. And, as you would expect, PRISM didn’t just stay focused on “terrorism” for very long. The NSA started using its new tools, and some older ones, to spy on foreign governments and companies, including those of America’s allies. “We hack network backbones—like huge Internet routers, basically—that give us access to the communications of hundreds of thousands of computers without having to hack every single one,” Snowden told the South China Morning Post in late June. U.S. citizens resident in the United States are allegedly exempt from having their messages read without a court order (but the court is secret, too). Unless, of course, American citizens communicate with people living outside the U.S., in which case they are fair game. Americans, on the whole, are remarkably untroubled by the NSA’s actions. Almost a million people work in the U.S. security industry, and most of those jobs would disappear if Americans did not believe that “terrorism” is the greatest threat facing their country. So the industry works very hard to sell them this fiction, and most of them accept it. Foreigner governments, by contrast, are very angry. The countries targeted by the NSA included not just obvious candidates like China and Russia, but U.S. allies like France, Italy, Greece, Japan and South Korea. The European Union’s embassy in Washington, its office at the United Nations, and even its headquarters in Brussels have been hacked. Latin American targets include not just Venezuela, but Mexico, Chile, Colombia and Brazil. (It’s those pesky Brazilian terrorists.) French President Francois Hollande responded to Snowden’s revelations by demanding that the spying “stops at the earliest possible date—that is to say immediately.” Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff said that the NSA’s actions, if proven, would represent “violations of sovereignty and human rights.” But foreign protests will not force a shut-down of the PRISM programme. At most, it will be renamed and re-hidden. The U.S. government gains major advantages by knowing everybody else’s secrets, and the million people in the “security community” are a huge domestic lobby. Manning and Snowden have done the world a service by exposing the U.S. government’s illicit actions past and present, but Manning’s future is probably life imprisonment, Snowden’s a life in exile (if he’s lucky). No good deed goes unpunished.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

The real cost of nuclear: addendum

Dear Editor, I have to correct the estimated $1.5 billion a year cost of Sellafield cleanup costs in the UK, which according to the National Audit Office has ballooned another 900 million pounds. In 2008 the authority brought in a consortium of companies to hire other experts etc. This is like handing the keys to the liquor store to a bunch of drunks, with instructions to gather their friends to help clean the place out. The authority does plan to clean up the site over the next 108 years! No you can’t make this up. Margaret Hodge, who chairs the Parliament’s public accounts committee said, “My concern is that unless the authority holds Sellafield Limited to a clear and rigorously benchmarked plan, timetables will continue to slip and cost spiral.” Over to Fukushima where levels of cancer causing caesium 134 and 137 in the ground water had rapidly increased to 90 times and 86 times higher than a week ago. The operator does not know where the leak is coming from. The levels are

now at 160 and 200 times the allowable limit respectively. Strontium 90 is also at 30 times the permitted rate. Levels in the seawater of tritium near the plant were at a record high of 2.300 becquerels per litre. Back home to New Brunswick where the single reactor at Point Lepreau is being refurbished. Costs for the Candu 6 overhaul were to have been no more than $1 billion; they are now expected to reach $3.5 billion. Part of the huge costs are due to paying a full staff of highly trained engineers who would normally operate the plant for the three years time overrun. The fear is that if these people were laid off they might not be available when needed. Power to replace the lost production had to be bought from out of province during this time. Apparently numerous “unexpected” problems were encountered requiring hundreds of specialized experts, which also swelled the bill. Quebec had the good sense to mothball its sole nuclear plant, rather than play the money pit game. Paul Whittaker, Gilmour

Hot days are great for griping By Terry Bush EMC Editorial - No doubt about it, summer is here. Up until this week, I really didn’t have much to gripe about and that really isn’t all that conducive to doing an editorial. The temperature was nice. There was plenty of rain for the new lawn and even the area consisting of mostly weeds came through with the help of a little fertilizer and seed. But this week is different. It’s easy to see why citizens of the Middle East and steamy hot countries in general always seem to be a little irritated. I’m starting to feel that way myself. So, without any particular ranking, here are a few things that been simmering on the back burner but it’s too warm today to actually flesh them out. While touring to Bancroft on the weekend, we encountered quite a few motorcycle enthusiasts travelling in large groups. While, I’ve never really seen the allure of riding in a group of 10 to 20 people, I can understand why it might be appealing to some especially the cruiser types who don’t vary their speed much and just like to get out and enjoy some scenery. It’s also pretty obvious that a whole new generation of enthusiasts is on the road and many would be considered in the 50+ range. Good for them. What I don’t understand is the perception by many new and experienced bikers that all the motorcycles in their riding group are somehow attached to each other. They aren’t. While travelling down the main drag of Bancroft, a biker pulled out of the Tim Hortons right in front of us causing me to hit the brakes. What we couldn’t understand was the rest of the crew thought they could do the same. We hit the brakes again as a couple more followed the first bike out without a care in the world. There was no rope connecting them together. While all their lights may have been on, we didn’t see a hearse in the drive-through so we knew it wasn’t a funeral procession. So what gives? I’ve seen the same thing at four-way stops. Some bikes pull up, the first bike goes through the stop and as you attempt to take your turn, all the other bikes run the stop sign behind the first bike as if they are one unit. Note to bikers from a fellow biker. Jumping the queue could be hazardous to your health. A motorcycle is one vehicle and any way you cut it, even if your group has 18 wheels on the pavement, you’re still not considered a tractor trailer. A couple of real estate agents have also gotten my goat lately with false advertising. Have you ever been searching for a little piece of vacant land with some water on it and found exactly what you’ve been looking for on the Internet. Twice in the past three months, I’ve found what looked like a sure thing. I contacted the agents, got the directions and in one case asked the agent point blank if the photo she had with the listing was taken on the actual property. My lack of trust was showing but she assured me it was. On that occasion, I drove 45 minutes ending up close to where the alleged beautiful piece of property was and bushwhacked an hour into it only to find that the photo was taken probably 300 metres up the lake on a different lot. The advertised lot? You couldn’t even see the lake from it, the 50 metres of swamp vegetation was so thick. In the second case, after driving over half an hour and feeding the deerflies for approximately the same amount of time, the lot that offered swimming, canoeing and fishing turned out to have a trickle of water in front of it as the creek had split in two at the lot north of it where the actual photo had been taken. What’s a guy to do? Well, this guy will never use either of those agents again. And my last bit of griping has to do with Kijiji etiquette. Is it too much to ask people to actually take down their ads if they’ve sold their item. While looking for a canoe last week because of the upcoming family reunion scheduled later this month at our place, I was amazed at the number of people who think their job is finished when their canoe was sold. I emailed one person a couple of times and mentioned that maybe it might be a good idea to stop wasting people’s time. The ad is still up there. Another person didn’t bother responding to my inquiry for five days. Two hours after I’d purchased a canoe, they got back to me. They’d been away. Who posts an ad and then leaves town? I’m getting a stiff neck from shaking my head so much. Time to hit the air conditioning and mellow out.

In fact, he has a whole van full of it. “I started getting interested in film when I was in high school at Quinte Secondary,” said Joel. “Some of my friends and I got a videocam and did some Star Wars spoofs and some comedies. It stuck with me. I can’t imagine anything more enjoyable.” He went to Humber College and studied film making and started to build a business. He got a couple of loans, bought some heavy equipment and set up a web site. Five years later, he is

He made a film to pay for the use of the theatre. He made films for two sponsors, Christian Jaehn-Kreibaum and Great Canadian Oil Change. He has also filmed the Quinte Business Achievement Awards and the Afghanistan Repatriation ceremony, as well as the Trenton Rowing and Paddling Club. He participated in the Docfest in Belleville and is going up in a helicopter to film the Poker Run on the water. “The idea is to revive interest in film,” he adds. “Trenton has a rich film history but it has disappeared.” Joel has set up business in Trenton with his wife Tamara and their son, 15 months. They are expecting another child in January. “This is my home,” he says. “My family is from Belleville area [north of Shannonville] but my wife’s family is all from Trenton, Jack and Mary McDonald. They have all been a big support.” As well as short films, Joel hopes to work on some feature length films of 90 to 100 minutes. Right now he is working with a distribution company in Kingston. Joel says he has done a few weddings but most people aren’t willing to pay for his kind of films. “I take it to a new level,” he said. “It’s a cinematic experience, using different

EMC News - Trenton - After a year of fund raising the Trenton Rowing and Paddling Club (TRPC) is excited to welcome everyone to the Official Opening and Ribbon Cutting of their new boat house this Saturday, July 20, at 11 a.m. “To see the boat house become a reality has been very rewarding,” says club president and head coach Jeff Lay. “We couldn’t have done it without the support of the City of Quinte West, Trenval, The Trenton Kiwanis Club and all the businesses and individuals that contributed to our Capital Campaign.” Along with the official opening this Saturday the club will be hosting an open house from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Everyone is invited to

join them throughout the day for a tour of the boat house, to watch their on-water activities and enjoy the community barbecue with live music and food provided by Smylie’s Your Independent Grocer. The club is also participating in the Festival on the Bay activities with rowing and paddling demos, and a group paddle with guide. “Through the tremendous support they have received from the community the Trenton Rowing and Paddling Club have successfully raised the $106,000 needed to build the new boat house and that campaign has come to an official end,” says club treasurer and chamber manager Suzanne Andrews. “Recently we received sev-

eral donations including a $5,000 donation from Trenton Cold Storage, a $5,000 donation from Paul Whitley and family and a $2,000 from Peter and Doreen Howe. Recent donations have also been received from the Brighton Rotary Club, Quinte Mobile Concrete; Vanderlaan Building Products; Mystical Distributing; Trenton Home Hardware; Wilkinson and Company LLP and Ontario Truss and Wall which brings us to our goal for the boat house.” The club will be thanking all of the donors this Saturday at the official opening and in the future permanent signage will be placed on the building to recognize the contributions made by these businesses,

organizations and individuals in the establishment of a club on the east bank of the Trent River in downtown Trenton. TRPC will continue to accept donations as they are now raising funds for the new docks, club safety equipment, youth programming, rowing equipment and paddling equipment. The club has partnered with the National Sport Trust Fund and charitable receipts are now available for donations made to the club. For more details on the club or for membership inquiries you can contact the Quinte West Chamber of Commerce at 613-392-7635 or go to the Trenton Rowing and Paddling Club Facebook page.

Solar applications rejected for city hall and YMCA

EMC News - Quinte West There will be no solar panels on the YMCA or city hall. “It appears there is not sufficient capacity and therefore both applications were turned down,” reported David Clazie, director of Corporate and Financial Services. The applications had been resubmitted to the Ontario Power Authority FIT program in early

2013. “At the time of submission it appeared there was sufficient capacity in the local Hydro One distribution system to accommodate this additional Hydro power generation,” Clazie said. “However, based on further review by the OPA and Hydro One, it appears there is not.” Council could re-apply in the fall of 2013 under the next round of applications.

Key Church in the Heart of the Park volunteer remembered By John Campbell

at the amphitheatre. His work on behalf of the interdenominational program included arranging for ministers, speakers, musicians, vocalists and even puppeteers to take part in the religious meeting. “My dad would always be trying to find a way to improve the experience for the committee and congregation,” Balsdon said. “He was always welcoming to others and completed any of the jobs with excellence and pride.” R0012188449

EMC News - Brighton - One of the community’s great volunteers was remembered Sunday morning at the church service held in Presqu’ile Provincial Park; he helped organize the weekly service for more than 35 years. A special tribute to Claude Thompson and his “exceptional role as a volunteer” was presented by his daughter, Claudia Balsdon, during the Church in the Heart of the Park service conducted

The retired high school math teacher died April 6 at the age of 87. His “most striking characteristic” was getting heavily involved in the community in numerous ways, from organizing Applefest parades to starting Winterfest, “even though he found it hard to breathe in cold weather,” his daughter said. Thompson received numerous awards, including Citizen of the Year for Brighton, and the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal. He “was always joyful when it came to volunteerism,” Balsdon said. “Thanks for your good example, Dad.” This is the 110th year that church services have been held at Presqu’ile. They run every July and August and feature ministers from different churches in the area. “It is a real blessing to be able to

come here for ten weeks out of the summer and worship in such a beautiful spot,” committee co-chair Pat Koets told the 120 people who sat on benches, in lawn chairs or on the ground. She told them at one point all provincial parks offered Sunday services but their number has been reduced to Presqu’ile and perhaps one other park in Ontario, Koets said. For campers, “it’s nice to be able to roll out of your tents and come to the church in your jeans,” she said afterward. After worship, there’s fellowship, when park users and local residents can chat over coffee, juice and cookies. “It’s just a whole lot of fun,” committee co-chair Diane Fortier told The Independent. Admission into the park to attend the service is free. An offering is held and

all money collected is returned to the community in support of local organizations, such as the Salvation Army. About 150 people on average attend the services, and up to half of them are campers, Fortier said. With different ministers and musicians invited to take part, the variety in what they have to offer “is nice to hear,” Koets said. The Reverend Paul Shank, of the Evangel Pentecostal Church in Brighton, said Church in the Heart of the Park “is just a wonderful feature for Brighton. “It’s meaningful for all those involved … as an expression of the faith,” in “a very relaxed setting … under the canopy of heaven,” he said. “It’s well worth the effort and something the community should be very proud of.”

EMC Entertainment - Belleville - As the city’s indie music scene continues to grow by leaps and bounds, the Canadian Indie Music Festival figures to continue to be the perfect venue for up-and-coming talent to strut their stuff in front of hometown audiences. “We’ve had a lot of success outside of our own town … there’s such a huge scene in some of the bigger centres,” said Canadian Indie Music Festival organizer Ryan Gabourie of Belleville’s own Rye and Silence. “It just didn’t seem like there was a venue for a big show in Belleville … the big stages are kind of reserved for the [biggest bands], but nothing really for the up and comers.”

Relatively new to the cavalcade of annual music events and activities in the Quinte region, Indie Music Fest first took to the stage in September of 2012, Reid Henry of My Darkest Days gave a solo acoustic performance during the bringing a lineup of 11 original artists second Canadian Indie Fest on Friday, July 12, at Zwicks Park in Belleville. of varying genres to play in Belleville.

There has been lots of research recently in medical and dental scientific journals about the effects of having a healthy mouth as well as those of having an unhealthy mouth. Your mouth is the gateway Dr. Brian Ho to the rest of your body. If your mouth is full of infections, the latest medical research has been showing that it affects the rest of your body quite significantly. If you suffer from diabetes, heart disease, and many other common ailments, the gum disease that is present in your mouth has the potential to contribute in a negative way to these medical conditions. You might be asking how this may be. Think of it this way: your body is a system that is constantly trying to heal itself. If you have a condition like heart disease, and your body has to use some of its valuable resources to combat your gum disease, it makes it that much harder for your body to take care of the heart. Also, if you suffer from gum infections in your mouth from periodontal disease, every time you eat and chew, bad bacteria are released that can directly affect things like your arteries and your heart valves. If you are pregnant, the constant stream of bad bacteria that may be in your mouth from infections can certainly affect an unborn child. Given that periodontal or gum disease has many negative effects, one would assume that it is easily detectable. Surprisingly enough, many people with periodontal disease are unaware that their mouths are burdened with this condition. Let’s take a moment to highlight some of the tell-tale signs of periodontal (gum) disease: bleeding of the gums when you brush or eat, loose teeth, bad breath, little gum pockets around your teeth that are swollen, and pain upon chewing. These are just some of the signs that you may have significant gum disease. Call your dentist and make an appointment to assess your gums so that you can keep your mouth and yourself healthy.

Popular restaurant passes to next generation

DE LA PRÉMATERNELLE À LA 6e ANNÉE

EN FRANÇAIS

EMC Business - Trenton Grannie’s Kitchen on Sidney Street in Trenton, closed its doors late last year when owner Nancy Longinotti decided it was time to retire from the business after years of running the successful restaurant. The place didn’t sit empty for long before Nancy’s daughter Tammy Longinotti and her niece Dorothy Maine, decided it was time to enter the restaurant business themselves. They have reopened the restaurant with a new name, Red’s Pancakes to Cupcakes and have done a complete renovation at the restaurant along with a new exhaust system in the kitchen. They will be serving breakfast, lunch and novelty cakes using as much local food as they can including eggs, meats and local breads “I’m excited to start this new adventure where it all began,” says Tammy when asked about opening up her new business. “I worked at Grannie’s Kitchen for 16 years doing everything, cook, server and manager and know what it takes to keep customers happy. Dorothy and I are

very happy with the new renovations at Red’s; they give the restaurant a warm inviting atmosphere that is very 21st century and the customers are going to love it.” Tammy and Dorothy are both busy moms and know that families are looking for good quality, affordable restaurants in the Quinte region. Dorothy started in the industry with her very first job at Grannie’s but after a couple of summers she started at Denny’s where she worked for 13 years. She has extensive experience in the front of house and has trained many servers and is also cross trained in the kitchen and can help out there if needed. She has opened three Denny’s locations since 2000 and was responsible for hiring and training of all staff so knows how to provide good service to all their customers. “The novelty cakes are a growing industry with people looking to find that special cake,” says co-owner Dorothy Maine. “I took some classes and started baking, and it just took off. My beautiful cakes

are made individually to suit the needs of the clients and I always look forward to creating something new.” “Tammy and Dorothy have both come full circle in their careers and it is exciting to seem them making that big step and open their own business,” says Quinte West Chamber manager Suzanne Andrews. “In the next few years many business owners will be looking to sell or pass on their businesses to the next generation of entrepreneurs and there will be many opportunities available for those that want to be their own boss.” Tammy and Dorothy invite everyone to come down and check out their beautiful new restaurant and try some of their delicious food. They want to also give back to those that serve and are offering a ten per cent discount to all military personnel and first responders, including police, fire and ambulance. Red’s Pancakes to Cupcakes is located at 279 Sidney Street; if you need more details you can call them directly at 343-263-2166.

EMC Events - Belleville - It was another successful year for the Medigas Celebrity Classic this past weekend at Trillium Woods Golf Club, as dozens of celebrities and community members congregated on the greens for a hot and humid day of golf, all in support of a great cause. “We’re here to have a great time, and it’s a great venue, and it’s a great day of golf, but at the end of the day we have to look at, what’s the reason … why are we here today,” said Bonnie Sullivan, Celebrity Classic committee member. “It’s all about the children.” Since getting its start as the Rick Meagher Charity Golf Classic in 1988, the tournament has now raised over two million dollars for a variety of causes and projects throughout the Quinte region. Among these contributions are annual Driving Dreams for Youth scholarships of $5,000 given to area students entering the health care field, and ongoing contributions to organizations supporting children with special needs in the community. The tournament has also helped build community features such as a playground at Zwicks Park, the pirate ship at West Riverside Park and the Tom

Gavey Pavilion. “I think that we put on a great day, but I think everyone really recognizes the good work that comes from the tournament,” Sullivan said. This year, the tournament was dedicated to Lisa Cockins, who passed away in 2012. Cockins, who had cerebral palsy, had served as a “poster child” of sorts for the tournament in recent times, attending the event for the past several years. The Medigas committee donated $2,000 to the Quinte Therapeutic Riding Association (QuinTRA) in honour of her memory. “I think Jack Miller said it best,” Sullivan said. “She was a child with special needs, but to us, she was just special.” Celebrities who took part in the event this year included Stanley Cup winner Andrew Shaw, former NHL’ers Dale Hawerchuk and Eric Tangradi, and 1998 Olympic figure skating silver medallist Elizabeth Manley, among others. “I think we have to take care of our own,” Sullivan said, when asked why it’s important to hold events like this for the community. “We all have to step up to the plate and help out our neighbours in any way we can.”

On the restart Jones gained the advantage on Brown to take the lead. Another spin in corner four, this time by Mike Ferrell on lap 18, produced the second yellow of the night and set up for a green-white-checkered finish.

In the Quinte Septic Stingers Class, former division champion #42 Andy Fletcher brought home his first win of the season. Number 78 Shelby Mills brought her Bill’s Johns Comp 4 to the victory lane.

The night saw four more new faces in victory lane including Picton native Chris Jones in the Sanderson Tire and Automotive Southern Ontario Sprint Cars. The last time the Southern Ontario Sprints raced at Brighton Speedway on June 8, Chris Jones came 1/100th of a second short of victory.

Twenty sprint cars took the green flag in the 20-lap main event with Warren Mahoney and Mitch Brown on the front row. Brown shot out to the early advantage and led the first 16 laps of the race.

Family canoeing across Canada pass through area By John Campbell

EMC Lifestyles - Trent Hills - Geoff and Pamela MacDonald have added to the challenges of raising a young family by spending their summers paddling across Canada. When they began their journey from Victoria in 2007, the Calgary couple hadn’t any children and they fully expected they’d be able to travel from coast to coast in three years. It was to be “an adventure, to experience Canada,” Geoff said, but a big flood in British Columbia slowed them down at the outset, and nature has disrupted their plans in various ways since then, “so our schedule became dictated by forces that we had no control over,” Geoff said during an overnight stopover at the Healey Falls flight lock July 11. “And at some point we said we need to start having a family.” Jude, three-and-a-half, was the first to arrive and Rane was born seven months ago. “Having a child really changes your outlook and what you’re trying to accomplish,” Geoff said. The original intent was to go all the way to St. John’s in Newfoundland and Labrador but that changed once they had two young sons, because tides and weather systems “can be very

dangerous and unpredictable,” Geoff said. “We have to be very cautious with children.” “It’s doable but it would take a lot more time than we thought we had,” Pam said. “Try to push hard every day everybody’s unhappy,” and should you set a schedule and fall behind, “you might be tempted to make decisions that aren’t safe so we decided Quebec City was manageable.” They expect to arrive there the Labour Day weekend, after a journey of nearly 10,000 kilometres. They travel about 25 kilometres a day; Pam helps out with the paddling whenever Rane falls asleep. “This trip has become our life,” said Geoff, a 38-year-old geologist whose employer lets him take a leave of absence each summer. Pam, 37, is a consulting operations analyst. Their mode of transportation is a 20foot Esquif Miramichi canoe made in Quebec that’s “extremely stable,” Pam said. A collapsible sail enables them to take advantage of favourable winds. The couple named their canoe Margo’s Cargo, after one of Stompin’ Tom’s songs. They’re fans of the country music icon who died earlier this year. “What a character,” Pam said. “He was a good inspiration for us.” Please see “Rockies” on page B3

The MacDonald family, including Pam and son Rane, spent the night at Healey Falls before resuming their journey by canoe across Canada July 11. Pam says her role on the trip are “bow paddler, archivist, camp builder, and child wrangler.” Photo: John Campbell

These horseshoe heavers are the best in the nation By Steve Jessel

EMC Sports - Belleville - It was often a dead silence inside the confines of the Quinte Sports and Wellness Centre this past weekend, despite the hundreds of competitors. Every so often, the clang of metal striking metal would interrupt the silence, usually followed by an audible cheer, or gasp of disappointment. The Canadian Horseshoe Championships can be a tense affair. “I enjoyed myself immensely,” said Gary Batty of the Belleville Horseshoe Club, which organized the event. “I wanted to play in the Canadians, and I did. I wanted to host it, and the club did. And I wanted to win a game, and I won three, so I’m happy.” Over 200 participants were in Belleville this past weekend for some of the highest-level horseshoe action in the country, the 2013 Canadian Horseshoe Championships. Taking place at Arena B of the Quinte Sports and Wellness Centre from July 10 to 13, the Horseshoe Canada sanctioned event Monique Labrech of Quebec carefully lines up a shot during the 2013 Canadian Horseshoe Champion- drew competitors from every province, many of them pitching for a chance to ships in Belleville this past weekend.

“amazing” complex. “I think it was excellent; these people did an amazing job,” Leis said. “I think overall the feeling that I got from players and spectators was phenomenal.” The Belleville organizers had roughly seven months to prepare for the event, after another city unexpectedly withdrew their candidacy late in the championship cycle. Undaunted, the Belleville club powered through to put together an exceptional event by all accounts, culminating in the largest Horseshoe Canada banquet in the history of the organization. “It was a little difficult, but we did it,” Batty said. “I think Belleville is proud. Everybody was proud of the facility, what we had done and the way it turned out.” For those attending the event, it was hard to miss the overall age of participants and spectators, with the vast majority over the age of 40. Horseshoes as a competitive sport is facing lean times in terms of fresh blood, but Batty agreed that events like this can only help

Ballet aid is a go

By Jack Evans

EMC News - Belleville - Quinte Ballet School is good to go for its fall registration following a special meeting of Belleville City Council last week. The brief meeting gave speedy passage to a bylaw to allow council for service as a guarantor for a line of credit for the school, in keeping with a discussion and positive response at council’s previous regular meeting. The 40-year-old private ballet school had, over the years, earned a reputation as one of Canada’s, if not North America’s premier junior ballet training schools, sending graduates to major schools and companies around the world. The school’s line of credit was abruptly cut off at a critical time because, while the school owned a modern, valuable building, it did not own the land, which had been contributed by the Hastings and Prince Edward Counties Board of Education. Council also regarded the school as of economic value to the community, attracting many students from a wide area, as far as Japan, and providing payroll to local employees.

Silver medal winner Canada’s oldest competitor By Sue Dickens

difficult to talk about his success in this sport. Humble to a fault, he eventually took this writer to an outdoor workshop where several walls are filled with medals. His most recent, a silver medal he won at the 2013 Pan American Masters Weightlifting Championships in Chicago. He competed in the men’s 80 age group, 77kilogram class. He and Pedro Serrano from

Puerto Rico, also 82, were the oldest weightlifters participating in the event. The three-day championships saw 250 competitors vying for a win. “They were not all competing against me, fortunately for me,” said Buchanan with a grin. The competition was broken down into age and weight categories, in fiveyear increments, beginning with men’s 35 years of age and ending with men’s 80 years of age. “I’ve been involved in the sport of weightlifting for many, many years,” said Buchanan. He started when his brother decided to get a set of weights when he was very young. “He gave up after a while but I got interested and kept it up,” explained Buchanan. Moving to Toronto in 1965 he got a job in the weightlifting arena. He was weightlifting as well and soon began competing “at a modest level.” “It is the most interesting sport for me,” he said. “It has a lot of science behind it. Kind of like golf which you know people analyze,” he added. “The execution of the lifts is very scientific and that appealed to me.” As he talked about the sport his calm demeanor remained unchanged,

but his eyes lit up as he surfed through a number of photos on his computer which had been taken at the competition in Chicago. “You get a rush when you lift your maximum,” he said. To stay at the top of his game he trains at Apollo Barbell Club in Belleville. Buchanan said he has always competed not only against others but also against himself, trying to set the bar higher and higher. His interest in the sport has taken him around the world. He is a former president of the Canadian Weightlifting Federation. “I’ve been the Olympics, world championships, World Commonwealth Games as a team manager and president,” he noted. And to add to his list of accomplishments he has also earned the credentials to become an International Referee #1 in weightlifting. He was a referee in that capacity and a weightlifter at the 2013 Pan American Masters Weightlifting Championships in Chicago. “They are always desperate for referees at the International Referee #1 level,” he commented. Weightlifters came from throughout the U.S., Canada and South America to compete.

Now that he has returned, he is settling into his routine at his rural countryside home where he lives with his wife Glenis. The medals, he said, are only one part of the reward

from his sport of his choice. “For the amount of effort I put into weightlifting I’ve got so much more back. I have friends all over the world,” he concluded.

First Nations want “in-kind” support to repair “desecrated” burial site By Bill Freeman

EMC News - Norwood - Township council will wait until an August staff report before acting on a request from a First Nations delegation seeking in-kind assistance to repair and secure a “known

and documented” 500-year-old burial mound at a property on Orchard Road that was disturbed during a private construction project in 2011. The municipality issued the building permit before an archeological assess-

ment was done on the site and work was halted only after human remains were found, Hiawatha First Nation Chief Glen Cowie told council last week as part of a delegation representing elders, youth and other supporters from Hiawatha, Al-

and archeologists. “It would have cost the township less to purchase the mound portion of the property and preserve it than to cost it has taken to excavate,” he said. First Nations chiefs want AsphodelNorwood to “mitigate the current situation.” “The big thing right now is we’re trying to rectify this situation; our ancestors are there open,” Chief Cowie said. Winter weather, soil erosion and the need for more volunteers to assist with the work has “caused an undue hardship on the First Nations.” “We’re looking to get that retaining wall to protect [that site],” he said. “We’re asking for in-kind services to help with that. It’s not like we’re asking for hundreds of thousands of dollars. Inkind, it’s minimal.” First Nations would also like to see Asphodel-Norwood and other municipalities develop archaeological management plans to deal with sacred burial mounds. “We would be more than willing to work with you on that but it doesn’t answer the question that First Nations are as long for resources, either in-kind, to complete the protection of known sites right now,” says Karry Sandy McKenzie, process and claims co-ordinator with the Williams Treaty First Nation. “We still have an uncovered burial ground of our ancestors that needs to be protected. We would like some follow-up on what assistance you can provide.” “What are you going to put in place so this doesn’t happen again?” Chief Cowie asked.

derville First Nation, Curve Lake First Nation and the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation. “When archeologists were contacted they noted almost instantly that the [Preston Mounds] site was a known and documented mound site,” Chief Cowie said. The site was initially registered in the annual archeological report of Ontario in 1897, he added. “There are a number of different sites and you need to get a plan on how to manage them,” Chief Cowie said noting that it’s not just an Asphodel-Norwood issue but a countywide concern that must be addressed. The Preston Mounds site has been a “well-recognized and documented site for years, similar to Serpent Mounds,” he said. “There are several around the area [especially along water routes].” “Over the years all of those sites have been identified.” “Areas along the waterfront need to be red-flagged for future development.” Nearly 2,000 fragments of human remains have been collected at the Preston site. “This indicates about ten to twelve of our ancestors have been disturbed,” Chief Cowie said. Alderville and Hiawatha First Nations first requested in kind support and equipment from Asphodel-Norwood in 2012 to help build a retaining wall at the site but the request was denied owing to a “lack of financial resources.” Chief Cowie says that total final cost to when all the cleanup work is done will be $118,450, work done by First Nations

Bob reminds people to check out the Trenton Big Band Festival By Kate Everson

EMC Entertainment - Trenton - It may not be 76 trombones leading the big parade, but the Big Band Festival this weekend will be impressive. “Come on downtown Saturday, July 20, from 2 to 4 for a free show,” said Councillor Bob Wannamaker at Monday night’s council meeting. There will be the Toronto All Star Big Band entertaining with some very impressive instruments. The 17-piece band is joined by the voices of The Serenaders and the TABB Four with hits from the 1930s and 1940s. Recent gigs have included the Beaches International Jazz Festival, Elliott Lake Entertainment Series, New York Riviera

Theatre and the Roselawn Centre Jazz and Blues Series. At 6 p.m. the Dan Bone Groove Trio performs. The trio has been the go-to jazz group in the Quinte area for nearly 15 years. Dan is a JUNO nominated sax man whose collaboration with keyboardist Duncan Cooper and drummer Steve Conley has set the standard for jazz in restaurants, clubs, weddings and more in central Ontario. At 9 the Rhythm and Truth Brass Band perform in the Riverfront Square (Back of Front Street). This JUNO award winning Paul Neufeld funky horn band has been tearing up rooms and street fests since 1995. With two CDs to their credit and a long track record as a Canadian festival favourite,

the eight-piece band has its own take on funk, soul and reggae classics. “Come on down and enjoy yourselves,” Bob says. On Sunday, July 21, at 1 p.m. the venue changes to the Centennial Park amphitheatre with tickets for $15 in advance at local music stores and city hall or online at <www.trentonbigbandfestival. com> or $20 at the gate. “Peter Appleyard and the Swing Fever band is one of the greatest bands in Canada,” Bob says. Appleyard is one of Canada’s internationally renowned jazz legends, having played eight years with Benny Goodman’s sextet in the 1970s. An Officer of the Order of Canada, Appleyard has shared

stages with the likes of Frank Sinatra, Oscar Peterson, Mel Torme and Miles Davis. At 85, he shows little sign of slowing down. John MacLeod’s Rex Hotel Orchestra is another show-stopper, with a JUNO-award-winning album of best traditional jazz. Formed ten years ago the 20-piece band’s name is taken from the jazz bar in Toronto where it performs on the last Monday of every month. “There’s also Swing Dancers,” Bob says. “Come enjoy yourselves!” There will be an artist village, food and Huff Estates wine available in the park. The event is sponsored by Seasons Dufferin Centre Bob Wannamaker (r) talks about the Trenton Big Band Festival in council with Keith Reid looking on. Photo: Kate Everson and the OLG.

Double Ducky Derby Dash will again be held at the Waterfront Festival the Campbellford/Seymour Fire Department rescue boat, the OPP Marine unit, and “our own safety boat at the ready in the water.” In keeping with the waterfront theme the Campbellford BIA Waterfront Festival is selling Double Ducky Derby Dash tickets. At 4 p.m. on the day of the event 300 ducks will be launched from the arch of the Campbell-

ford Bridge and folks can watch as they float downstream on the current, (upstream if the wind is too strong). “If your duck comes in first, you could win a $100 gift certificate from Sharpe’s Food Market or from Campbellford Canadian Tire,” explained Kerr. The Double Ducky Derby Dash tickets are available from participating downtown Campbellford merchants at $2 each

and the money collected goes to pay for the cost of the insurance for the event. “Be part of the action, be part of the crowd for the Campbellford BIA’s 18th annual Waterfront Festival,” she added with enthusiasm, as the volunteers get ready for the big event which takes place on Saturday, August 3.

LIFESTYLES

The Good Earth: EMC Lifestyles - The dog days of summer are soon to arrive; last week was just a taste of things to come. Linked to Sirius, the Dog Star, they refer to the full-on, beat-you-down spells of hot, hazy and miserably humid days of July and August. The next paragraph is lifted directly from Wikipedia: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dog Days were popularly believed to be an evil time â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;the Sea boiled, the Wine turned sour, Dogs grew mad, and all other creatures became languid; causing to man, among other diseases, burning fevers, hysterics, and phrensies.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; according to Bradyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Clavis Calendaria, 1813â&#x20AC;?

Reality Check:

Sheila Wray Gregoire EMC Lifestyles - Last week the perfect storm hit Toronto. Unexpected torrential rains poured down at rush hour on a weekday, stranding commuters and imperiling Go Train passengers (some of whom had to deal with snakes on a train). Combine heavy rains with the height of the commute and outdated sewage systems and you have a major

Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Let The Dogs Get You weather? So, what has this to do with gardening, Gentle Reader? There are several horticultural happenings coincidental to doggy days. One is the plethora of garden tours: stop in at just about any garden centre and read the items on their bulletin boards. A garden tour usually supports a good cause and is an excellent way to get new ideas. Please donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be tempted to break off little cuttings or ďŹ&#x201A;owers; youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be astonished at how much damage is caused by visitors. High humidity creates its own set of watering rules. You can check the archives of this paper and, soon, many garden writers will produce columns on how to balance the need for water and the plantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to transpire. The two plants that seem to suffer most, in my humble opinion, are impatiens and Japanese maples. With the heat comes higher soil

temperatures which affect our lawns. We grow â&#x20AC;&#x153;cool seasonâ&#x20AC;? grasses and there is a point when they say â&#x20AC;&#x153;Enough already! Wake me up when September comes.â&#x20AC;? (Which is a paraphrase from a song by the appropriately titled group Green Day.) There is lots of new work being done to further explain dormancy. Root growth stops at a certain temperatureâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; 77° F at four inches below surfaceâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;but this has little to do with dormancy. Leaves, stolons, crowns, rhizomes, all the plant bits not a root, are where the water is stored. When that is depleted, dormancy occurs. So, there is a good argument being made to â&#x20AC;&#x153;syringeâ&#x20AC;? lawns in the hot weather. Instead of applying one inch of water once a week, think about trying 1/3â&#x20AC;? of water three times a week. There will be little growth but the grass should stay green. However, as my friend Paul VandenEngel says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you want good grass, plant a tree.â&#x20AC;?

The last bit to chat about is succession. In a few weeks many of our gardens are about to change dramatically with the onset of dog days, usually for the worst. Make a note of â&#x20AC;&#x153;bareâ&#x20AC;? spots, areas without colour or bloom. As lush and full as the greenery might be, it serves primarily as a backdrop for the up-front colour. Note what is in bloom in other gardens that would enhance your bit of this good earth. Visit the garden centres and nurseries and check out the eye-candy at the entrances. We put it there for two reasons: 1) full bloom plants are pretty and people buy them; and, 2) our customers will be shown how to get full season colour, succession of bloom, by using those plants. The caveat is to make sure the plants are either perennials or shrubs and trees native/naturalised to your area. I might happily purchase impatiens at $12 a

Dan Clost ďŹ&#x201A;at but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not so keen at buying a plumbago at $29 no matter how blue the ďŹ&#x201A;ower. (Caryopteris or Blue Beard is a good small shrub alternative.) Something to do on a Saturday: midseason check of lawn mowers, turn the compost piles, replenish mulches, and check for bugsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;good and bad. Finally, if you do have a brown dog, dye the fur just in case retro-Romans are roaming the neighbourhood.

A perfect storm of social dysfunction mess. A perfect storm hit a Florida neighbourhood a year and a half ago, too. A Hispanic neighbourhood watch volunteer, George Zimmerman, spotted a suspicious black teenager, Trayvon Martin, in his community, and the two broke into a tussle, during which Zimmerman shot Martin. In a highproďŹ le trial carried even on Canadian media, the jury last weekend declared Zimmerman not guilty of murder or manslaughter. I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help thinking of all of the ingredients that lined up to form that tragedy, too. Zimmermanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s neighbours had been burglarized multiple times, and the police had never materialized in a timely fashion, nor had they ever made any arrests. His conďŹ dence in the police was justiďŹ ably abysmal. Martin, for his part, had grown up feeling like he was an â&#x20AC;&#x153;other,â&#x20AC;? a victim of racism. And yet instead of trying to help him respect

himself and ďŹ t into the culture so he could succeed, the educational system had done a pathetic job. Martinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s friend who testiďŹ ed at the trial could barely be understood, her English was so bad. Because of atrocious communication skills, the poor girl is virtually unemployable. How can an educational system get away with such a dereliction of duty? Then there are Martinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parents, who split up some time ago. His mother admitted she couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t control her son, so she had sent him to live with his father. Martin grew up mostly without a dad, and kids in those situations, living in marginal communities, often learn to take care of themselves by acting aggressively. So Martin lived in a culture where your main concern was making sure that others didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t disrespect you. He fought frequently, used recreational drugs, and at the time of his death he was suspended

from school. A police force that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t protect the public; an educational system that entrenches the underclass, rather than giving them a leg up; and a dysfunctional family system that leaves kids to fend for themselves. Put all of these things together on one February night, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s difďŹ cult to imagine events turning out much differently. It was the perfect storm. Canada is usually about ten years behind American social trends, so as I watched this trial, I asked, is this happening here? Is our school system teaching students to communicate effectively, or just passing kids through, grade by grade? Are we encouraging fatherlessness through our welfare system and our no-fault divorce system? Do we have a culture which, instead of teaching kids to respect themselves and aiming to succeed, is encouraging kids to abandon traditional goals and to reject

the wider society altogether? Owing to both racial prejudice and racial pride, are we teaching kids to think of themselves primarily as part of a particular group, rather than as part of a wider society? I think weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing all of those things. That night in February, Zimmerman looked at an innocent boy and saw a threat. Martin looked at a concerned citizen and saw a threat. They both shared an â&#x20AC;&#x153;us versus themâ&#x20AC;? mentality. And if we, as a culture, give up on shared values, a shared identity, and a shared sense of community, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to be looking at pretty soon, too. Canadians pride ourselves on â&#x20AC;&#x153;peace, order, and good government,â&#x20AC;? but these things are not automatic. They are the product of citizens feeling as if they have a shared stake in the country. When that falls apart, our peace and order will fall apart, too. Then weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see a lot more perfect storms.

Conservation authorities help ensure Ontario is prepared for a flood crisis

EMC News - Newmarket - While Alberta continues to recover from devastating large scale ďŹ&#x201A;ooding events caused by record setting rainfalls across the province, Ontario can take comfort in knowing it has implemented a system that helps reduce ďŹ&#x201A;ood damages through effective ďŹ&#x201A;ood forecasting, ďŹ&#x201A;ood mitigation works, and managing development in ďŹ&#x201A;ood plains. The most severe ďŹ&#x201A;ooding on record in Ontario occurred in October 1954 when Hurricane Hazel passed into

southern Ontario, killing 81 people and causing over $180 million in damages. Following the devastating impact of Hazel, a ďŹ&#x201A;ood plain mapping and ďŹ&#x201A;ood forecasting and warning system was established in the province. Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ&#x201A;ood management system is often regarded as an example of good risk management. Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 36 conservation authorities, local watershed management agencies that deliver services and programs that protect and manage water and other natural resources, work with the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources under a provincial emergency management framework to deliver a ďŹ&#x201A;ood management program to help safeguard the homes, belongings, and lives of Ontarians from ďŹ&#x201A;ooding events. Conservation authorities are responsible for monitoring and predicting ďŹ&#x201A;ood ďŹ&#x201A;ows and water levels within their watersheds, operating ďŹ&#x201A;ood control structures such as dams, and disseminating ďŹ&#x201A;ood messages to local municipalities and agencies. Flood

forecast messages enable conservation authorities and municipalities to prepare for, track, and manage local ďŹ&#x201A;ooding. Advance warning provides these agencies with the opportunity to put emergency plans into operation, evacuate communities if necessary, and secure property in areas that are more likely to ďŹ&#x201A;ood. In parts of the province where conservation authorities donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exist, the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources provides a ďŹ&#x201A;ood management program through their district ofďŹ ces. In accordance with the Conservation Authorities Act (1946), conservation authorities have the ability to restrict development in ďŹ&#x201A;ood plains. While some may claim conservation authority permitting processes are unnecessarily restrictive, ďŹ&#x201A;ood management programs delivered by the conservation authorities prevent loss of life and an average of well over $100 million per year in reduced ďŹ&#x201A;ood damages. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Although conservation authorities and our partners have done a good job

at minimizing risk, the reality is that ďŹ&#x201A;ooding remains to be the leading cause of public emergency in Ontario, costing millions of dollars per year in damages,â&#x20AC;? says Kim Gavine, general manager of Conservation Ontario, the organization that represents the conservation authorities. Gavine also outlines that climate change impacts are a signiďŹ cant issue as they create more frequent and more serious ďŹ&#x201A;ood events, â&#x20AC;&#x153;ďŹ&#x201A;ooding can no longer be seen as a spring problem,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an issue year round.â&#x20AC;? Conservation Ontario believes that additional investment is needed.

Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Grand Canyon By John M. Smith

EMC Lifestyles - About 60 kilometres northeast of Thunder Bay, I found Ouimet Canyon, which could be considered Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Grand Canyon. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about three kilometres long, 152 metres (500 feet) across, and 107 metres (361 feet) deep; this spectacular, steepsided gorge is cut into the rugged volcanic rock thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s located along the north shore of Lake Superior. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s believed glaciers came and went through this area about two million years ago, cracking and gouging the surface, exposing it to the actions of weathering, and eventually carving out this amazing canyon. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a geologic phenomenon that has been formed by the forces of ice, wind, rain, and timeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an awesome sight! There is, of course, a legend about how this canyon was formed, too. According to this â&#x20AC;&#x153;theory,â&#x20AC;? the giant Omett helped Nanabijou make mountains and lakes. One day, while Omett was moving a mountain, part of it fell and killed Naiomi (the girl he secretly lovedâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and Nanabijouâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s daughter). Omett quickly hid Naiomi out of fear, and Nanabijou began searching for his daughter. When Nanabijou sensed that something was buried beneath his feet, he sent a thunderbolt to open up the ground so that he could take a closer look. He found his dead daughter at the bottom of this freshly created chasm, and he sadly buried her there on the canyon floor. In anger, he turned Omett into stone and put him on the canyon wallâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;to watch over Naiomiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grave forever (one of the sculpted rocks located in the canyon is, of course, named the Indian Head). To get to the park, exit the Trans Canada Highway near Dorion, and drive on a well-marked blacktop road for 11 kilometres to the parking lot; the last part of the drive becomes narrow and winding, and trailers are not allowed,

so thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a designated drop-off point. Ouimet Canyon Provincial Park is open from mid-May to mid-October, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a day use only park (no overnight camping): however, this nature reserve provincial park offers the visitor a network of trails and boardwalks and magnificent views of the spectacular gorge. I walked on the pleasant onekilometre trail that leads from the parking lot to the two viewing platforms that extend right over the edge of the steep canyon wall. From these spectacular lookouts, I could get a panoramic view of the area, with its huge vertical rock columns (including the Indian Head) and steep canyon walls, and I could also gaze far down below me, straight down, to the chasm floor. I could feel the cool air rising from the depths of the canyon. I was told certain Arctic plants and alpine flowers survive down there in the shade and insulated moss, and ice remains below some of the shaded boulders yearround; access to the canyon floor was prohibited to protect this fragile plant community. I found informative interpretive panels at both lookouts, and as I gazed to the north, the canyon eventually pinched into the surrounding hills, and to the south, it opened into a broad valley that extended all the way to Lake Superior. As I stood in awe at one of the lookouts, I began talking with a park ranger who was doing some bird watching there. She told me this was a great area for viewing such species as peregrine falcons, great blue herons, ospreys, and eagles. The canyon itself was named after a former nearby railway station, Ouimet Station (on the CPR line), and the station was named after Joseph Aldric Ouimet, the Canadian Minister of Public Works from 1892 to 1896. Very near to Ouimet Canyon is the privately owned and operated Eagle Canyon, which features on-

site camping, two suspension bridges spanning the gorge, and a zip line. Another nearby provincial park thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s definitely worth a visit is Sleeping Giant Provincial Park on the rugged shoreline of Lake Superior, near Thunder Bay. Ouimet Canyon is a bit

of a secret, for itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s somewhat out of the way and not crammed with tourists. However, I found it to be a rather unique and memorable destination, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d recommend checking it out on your next visit to this area of northern Ontario.

Young 8 Wing couple wrestling themselves back into shape after life happened

By Ross Lees

EMC Lifestyles - Trenton - Lieutenant Dionysios (Gabe) and Corporal Samantha Gosselin perhaps have marriage counselling down to a fine art. Married with two children, they say they never argueâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;once they get off the mats. Gabe and Samantha are also wrestlers, a sport they were practising when they met and fell in love. A year ago, after their second child and while Samantha was still on maternity leave, they got back into wrestling and worked themselves back into shape, to the point they won bronze medals at a recent Canada Cup Competition at the University of Guelph. Now that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve proven to themselves theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve still got the competitive juices and talent, they want to keep working their way up in the sport. Having joined the 8 Wing Martial Arts Club, Gabe, Wing Pay Accounts Officer, and Sam, an RMS clerk, started a wrestling club and, as they continue to outfit it with proper mats, etc., they hope to work themselves into shape to wrestle at CISM, an international military sports organization. For that to happen, though, they may have to practise some wrestling techniques within the hierarchy of the military. The last time a CISM event was held, there were no Canadian military wrestlers involved. Challenges like that, however, are just wrestling opportunities for this motivated young couple. Gabe wrestles

at the 120-kilogram weight class and Samantha wrestles at the 72-kilogram weight class. Having started their military careers and then started a family, they were away from wrestling for about six years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Life happened,â&#x20AC;? noted Gabe, adding they decided to try to get back to it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was always something we wanted to keep in our lives,â&#x20AC;? Samantha adds. For the past nine months, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been wrestling against each other while also coaching each other in a fairly austere wrestling environment. Where theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been practising, they have had to use mats designed for another competitive sport, which they laugh about and say it just helped make them the toughest wrestlers at the recent tournament. Somewhere along the line, they must have done something, right, however, because they each won bronze medals while competing against some Team Canada wrestlers and athletes from 17 years old and up with the two Gosselins being the elder statesmen. Not really knowing how their training was coming along until they hit some real competition, they had two goals going into the competition. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to get beat in ten seconds and we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to get hurt,â&#x20AC;? Gabe said. Those rules became even more important when a rule change came down just two weeks prior to the event and

the rules were still being worked out even as they went on the mats. Secretly, the Gosselins had another goal: to score a point as quickly as possible. Both did that quickly and Samantha ended up quickly pinning her opponent once she scored that initial point. Gabe scored his first point against a Team Canada wrestler and that helped

him regain some confidence. The two athletes admit it has not been easy establishing the club and keeping their training routines, to say nothing of raising a young family. And of course, a husband and wife coaching each other does not always go well, but wrestling has helped get rid of the aggression.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We never fight,â&#x20AC;? Gabe says with a laugh. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re normally too tired,â&#x20AC;? interjects Samantha, as they smile at each other. And as if all those challenges arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enough, they want to wrestle at CISM. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll keep you posted how that works out.

Squadron planning a 70th anniversary celebration By Ross Lees

R0012182140

EMC News - Trenton - 424 Squadron wants to bring all present and former squadron members back to Trenton to celebrate the squadron’s 70th anniversary. The actual 70th anniversary happened on October 15, 2012, but commanding Officer Lieutenant-Colonel Jean Bernier did not want the anniversary to pass without a celebration by all present and former members of the squadron, according to Captain Gillian Parker. “It’s an occasion to gather our people together so we’re in the process of trying to reach out to our past members,” Parker said The celebration will be held on the weekend of September 27 to 29 at 8 Wing/CFB Trenton, beginning with a Friday night meet and greet at 9 Hangar, Captain Gillian Parker displays the newly minted 424 Squadron anniversary coin featuring the aircraft the squadron has flown according to Captain Parker. “It begins at 4 p.m. and we’ll on one side and their battle honours on the other. To make contact to purchase the coin, E-mail <squadron424@yahoo.ca> or have buses to the hangar line telephone 613-885-4823. Photo Ross Lees side of the base,” she said. They are also hoping for a Search and Rescue (SAR) demonstration and they anticipate a Lancaster fly-in, for the occasion. “There will be food and refreshments and LieutenantColonel Bernier is inviting all previous Commanding Officers to return for the event,” Captain Parker noted. The Saturday morning kicks off with a golf tournament at Roundel Glen Golf Course on a first-come, first-served basis with just 40 slots open. That is followed by a wine tour of three wineries in Prince Edward County ending at Huff Estates for lunch. Saturday night, a semi-formal gala dinner open to spouses will be held at the National Air Force Museum of Canada (NAFMC), Parker stated. Sunday morning, the squadron wants to rededicate the memorial at the NAFMC. The ceremony will begin at 10 a.m. and conclude with lunch at the Officers’ Mess. “That will be the farewell lunch where everybody can gather for their final gettogether,” Captain Parker noted. For now, however, squadron personnel are concentrating on trying to get in touch with as many former members as they can, across Canada and the United Kingdom. Anyone interested in attending is directed to the web site at <www.424sqn70th.ca> where they can register, check schedules or garner even more information and details of the event.

B12 EMC Section B - Thursday, July 18, 2013

Another aspect of the celebration is that LieutenantColonel Bernier has commissioned a special coin for the occasion and Captain Parker indicates it is the nicest coin she has ever seen. It can be ordered through the web site and orders are being taken now. A Search and Rescue/ Transport Squadron, 424 (Tiger) Squadron works out of 9 Hangar at 8 Wing/CFB Trenton. To fulfil its roles, 424 Squadron flies the CH-146 Griffon helicopter and the Lockheed CC-130 Hercules. 424 Squadron is responsible for the 10,000,000 square kilometres of the Trenton Search and Rescue Region comprising most of the Province of Quebec,

all of Ontario, the Prairie Provinces and the entire Arctic. The Squadron crews one aircraft of each type on a 30minute standby response posture during normal working hours and on a two-hour posture at all other times in order to respond to distress cases as tasked by the Rescue Co-ordination Centre. The Hercules allows the Squadron to fulfill its other primary role of strategic transport anywhere in the world. To maintain this capability, the Squadron yearly conducts four Long Range Trainers to the Caribbean, South America, Europe and Africa. Airlift for humanitarian and aid agencies are carried on these flights, often bringing aid and supplies to hospitals and orphanages. As well, 424 Squadron crews participate in all major airlift operations 424 (T&R) Squadron provides an important and diverse capability to 8 Wing which in turn makes for an interesting and satisfying tour of duty for its members. History On October 15, 1942, 424 Bomber Squadron formed at Topcliffe, England. It flew from England and Tunisia during the war, disbanding on October 15, 1945. Back in Canada, the squadron reformed at RCAF Station Hamilton on April 15, 1946, as 424 Light Bomber Squadron (Auxiliary). On September 19, 1952, the title “City of Hamilton” was added to the official squadron designation. The squadron was disbanded on March 31, 1964. On July 8, 1968, 424 Communications and Rescue Squadron stood up at RCAF Station (CFB) Trenton, where they remain today equipped with the CH-149 Cormorant and CC-130 Hercules. Still relatively early in the process of organizing the event, Captain Parker indicates their prime concern at this point is getting in touch with all past members of 424 Squadron. “We’re trying to contact members any way we can and we’ll be making a concerted effort to keep in contact in the future, as well,” she said. The Squadron can be contacted in a number of ways, including: Telephone: 613-8854823; E-mail <squadron424@ yahoo.ca>; or by regular mail at 424 Search and Rescue/ Transport Squadron, 8 Wing/ CFB Trenton, P.O.

Health Unit approves new strategic plan By Bill Freeman

EMC News - Peterborough County - The Peterborough County City Board of Health has approved the health unit’s new 2013-2017 strategic plan which will help guide the organization through its work in the county, city of Peterborough and First Nations. The plan was released by the heath unit in June and focuses on four key directions. “This new plan is a significant

achievement that will guide the health unit for the next five years in a way that reflects our community and its health needs,” board chair David Watton said. Watton said the plan is the “culmination of many months of hard work. “It rests squarely on a foundation of reaching out to and connecting with the many stakeholders who work with us, who use our services, who rely on us each and every day,” he said.

The process to build the plan involved “synchronizing many inputs,” Watton said. Those “inputs” included “local population data, extensive community consultations, a review of Ontario Public Health Standards and the province’s own strategic plan framework: for the public health sector. The final plan “defines four key strategic directions: community-centred focus, determinants of health and health equity,

capacity and infrastructure and quality and performance. “These four directions provide a vision for our organization that is proud, caring, professional, action-oriented, and measureable,” Mr. Watton says. “Given the complexity and the importance of public health, there are many challenges and opportunities before us; however, we are confident in the abilities of our staff members who work tirelessly to promote health and

prevent illness to deliver on this plan,” he added. Now that the plan has been completed and approved, health unit staff will take to the road and make presentations to municipal councils throughout the county and to city council in Peterborough. The health unit is also encouraging local residents to download the plan from the health unit’s web site at <www. pcchu.ca>.

Agricultural Wall of Fame founder finally gets his due By John Campbell

EMC News - Northumberland County - Jim Dalrymple, the man whose idea it was to establish the Quinte Agriculture Wall of Fame eight years ago, will join its ranks of honorees this year. He and eight others who have made significant contributions to their communities and the agriculture and food industry at the local, regional or national level will have their names added to the wall at Farmtown Park in Stirling September 15. “I’m quite honoured,” said the Cramahe Township resident, but “I feel guilty going in because I originated this wall.” Dalrymple was nominated by the Quinte Pork Producers, which had tried a few times before to submit his name “and I kept saying no, because I’m so involved in the whole process, I don’t think it looks right.” He needn’t worry about appearances. His record clearly speaks to his worthiness as a Wall of Fame inductee. A regional swine specialist at the Ministry of Agriculture’s Brighton office for 27 years before retiring in 1998, Dalrymple has garnered numerous awards, from the Canadian Agri-Food Research Council, The Canadian Society of Animal Science, the Ontario Farm Animal Council, Ontario Pork, and the Ontario Institute of Agrologists. He chaired the Ontario Animal Research and Services Committee, the Canada Committee on Animals, the Animal Code of Practice and Veal Code development committees, and the Quinte West/Northumberland Agricultural Advisory committee. He also was a director of Ontario

Jim Dalrymple and eight others who have played prominent roles in agriculture and community life in four counties will have their portraits and stories added to the Quinte Agricultural Wall of Fame September 15 at Farmtown Park in Stirling. Dalrymple, a member of Brighton Lions for 20 years and co-chair of the Brighton Applefest Committee for two years, retired as a swine specialist in 1998 and started a consulting service out of his home in Cramahe Township. Photo: Submitted

Swine Improvement, and a member of the Ontario AgriFood Technologies Development Committee, the Ontario Pork Industry Improvement Task Force, the Canadian Agri-Food Research Council, and the Animal Germplasm

Technical Experts Board. Dalrymple has also written extensively and was co-author of A Century of Achievement in Animal Agriculture. A graduate of the Ontario Agricultural College at the University of Guelph with a

Master of Science degree, he worked for Canada Packers before joining the Ministry of Agriculture. After his retirement, he started Livestock Technology Services and worked as a consultant; his clients included the federal government, universities and commodity groups, dealing with everything from climate change to animal welfare. “My work, it’s been enjoyable,” he said, and the highlight was “working with farmers.” Dalrymple said agriculture is much different today from when he started out. “There are far fewer farmers now,” he said, noting there were 20,000 hog producers in Ontario in the 1970s and now there are about 1,600. “I wouldn’t enjoy my role today because it’s more bureaucratic and you don’t get to visit with the farmers,” he said. “I could talk to senior officials but now there’s about six, eight levels of bureaucracy you have to go through to get anywhere.” John Boughen is the other inductee from Northumberland County. A past president of the Northumberland Federation of Agriculture, which nominated him, he served on the former Hope Township Ratepayers Association, the Port Hope Agricultural Advisory Committee, the East Durham and Port Hope historical societies, and the Port Hope Probus Club. Boughen, who died recently, also led the charge to send generators to eastern Ontario and Quebec following the ice storm in 1998, and was active in the Hay West campaign in 2002. The other inductees are: Russell and Mary Sills, and Don Martin, Hastings County; Bill Greer, former warden of Prince Edward County and a member of Wellington council for 30 years, 13

as reeve; Paul Burns, Lennox and Addington County, a former warden who received a lifetime achievement award from the county in 2009, and Bill and Marilyn Brant, Tyendinaga First

Nation.   You can read about the 41 people whose legacies are enshrined at the Quinte Agricultural Wall of Fame by visiting <http://agheritage. ca/ag-hall-of-fame>.

Vintage Wings aircraft fly around CFB Trenton EMC News - Trenton - Vintage Wings of Canada’s heritage aircraft will be seen flying around CFB Trenton and Mountain View Detachment until July 22 as part of their familiarization program for the Royal Canadian Air Cadets at the Trenton Air Cadet Summer Training Centre (TACSTC). Residents of Quinte West, Prince Edward County and surrounding communities may see a Harvard, a Tiger Moth, a Fleet Finch, or a Chipmunk flying around the area during this period. There will be increased air traffic during the day; however, it will not pose a disturbance to the community. The educational outreach program, Yellow Wings, has been developed by Vintage Wings of Canada to address the challenge of turning young people onto science, technology, engineering and math, and motivating them to pursue their dreams through hard work and discipline. This program will take place over 50 days during the summer at nine cadet training centres across Canada. As the TACSTC is one of Canada’s largest Air Cadet training centres with approximately 1,600 cadets participating in various summer training courses, it represents an ideal audience for this educational outreach. Also, Trenton is an especially relevant venue for this training initiative given the historic significance of the base to the Royal Canadian Air Force and the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan.
