Presqu’ile Bay water quality study proposed By Ray Yurkowski

Suds featured at Farmtown Park .

Page B22

EMC News - Brighton Councillor John Martinello got much more than he bargained for at the regular municipal council meeting on Monday night. He was asking for support in requesting the initiation and implementation of a long-term water quality study of the waters of Presqu’ile Bay from the Ontario Minister of Envi-

ronment. “Presqu’ile Bay is to Brighton what the Great Lakes are to Ontario,” he said in his report. “In order to protect and improve the water quality, it is necessary to know its current condition.” “To the best of my knowledge, there has been no recent long-term study of Presqu’ile Bay water quality,” he told council.

“And during the same time, there has been substantial development, particularly south of the (railroad) tracks … development that might possibly impact bay water quality. “In June 2012, the Province of Ontario released its draft Great Lakes Strategy and that 63-page document very much speaks to the need to protect the Great Lakes and the need to pro-

and Batawa resident Serge Folschweiler. There was also a people’s choice. Enjoying the day were children carving pumpkins with help from employees Brianna Dracup and Jake Hollett. Seven-year-old Grace and four-year-old Max LaCroix came all the way from Prince Edward County to dig into a pumpkin. Max looked as scary as the jack-o’-lantern he was carving! Clown balloon maker Denholm Blair from Brighton brightened up the festivities with his fantastic balloon shapes. Victoria Reid, a Bayside Secondary School student, and her exchange student Alexia Hilaire from Tarbes, France, enjoyed trying on the craziest balloon hats and wore them with finesse. Sonja Bata herself dropped by to sample the chili but wouldn’t reveal her favourite, saving that for the judges. Darren Lobb, ski hill manager, pointed people to the ski table to sign up for this year’s winter events. Looking at the grass-covered slopes, he said he didn’t bring his grass skis this time. Heather Candler, manager of Batawa Development Corporation, sampled the chili to her heart’s content and declared them all magnificent.

EMC Events - Batawa On Sunday, October 14, Batawa Ski Hill hosted the 5th annual Quinte’s Chili Cook-off as part of their Harvest at the Hill celebration. The highlight of the day was the chili tasting. Guests sampled each of the team’s chili competing for the coveted trophy, including Batawa Lions Club’s Diane Wurster, René LeFort and Judi Clark, Jimmy’s Pizza from Campbellford with Denny Ringas, Station 5 Batawa Fire Department with Jae Cheyne and Berry “Hot Stuff” Tolme, and of course Batawa’s own Chef Trevor “sweet with heat” McMillan.   “It was a great day to warm up with the all-time favourite comfort food,” said Chef Trevor. Trevor noted that the secret ingredient to his chili was chili peppers. Not too hot! He sometimes adds beer to his chili too. Judges were Quinte West Mayor John Williams, Quinte West Chamber of Commerce manager Suzanne Andrews, Batawa resident (some consider him to be the mayor of Batawa) Chuck Naphan offering a straight up palate cleanser or unknown origins, and last but not least, the designer of the North Star shoe

Mayor tightlipped about phone call By Ray Yurkowski

EMC News - Brighton Deputy-mayor Tom Rittwage wants to pin down what really happened

during a recent telephone call between municipal solicitors Templeman Menninga and Mayor Mark Walas.

In a listing of the June payables, an entry from the lawyers showed a $1,830 bill for a teleconference call with the mayor. When Rittwage questioned the amount during the July council meeting, Walas answered, “That expense would be deemed a subject regarding a personal matter about an identifiable individual including a municipal or local board employee pursuant to section 239.2b of the Municipal Act 2001 as amended and that is what I can provide publicly to you.” At their regular meeting Monday night, Rittwage asked council to approve getting a written report outlining the content of the discussion. “Obviously, I can’t go

into too much detail as the discussions that surround this mystery happened in camera,” Rittwage told the mayor. “However, I can say we did discuss that I feel your telephone call was of a personal nature and not a business need and the taxpayers are on the hook for something that you yourself should be paying. “I believe we need to get this right and we need to get a response from the solicitor to find out exactly what the story is.” “Yes, I did make one call to Templeman Menninga,” explained Walas. “I was calling for clarification on Bill 168 regarding section 239.2b of the Municipal Act as amended. I have nothing further

to say.” “What you’re saying now and what was said in closed session are absolutely the opposite,” countered Rittwage. When asked for an estimate on how much the report might cost, municipal CAO Gayle Frost offered, “I would expect it would be in the area of 500 to 600 dollars. That’s my guess.” “I wonder, is this worth all the trouble … for character assassination?” asked Councillor Mary Tadman. “I just don’t understand it.” “I don’t appreciate that comment from Councillor Tadman and I expect an apology,” said Rittwage. “It was just a general comment so I’m not go-

ing to uphold that point, certainly,” said Walas. “The bottom line here mayor is if you, in fact, have billed goods to the municipality that are for personal interests, you should pay,” said Rittwage. “It isn’t practice for us to use the solicitor for personal business. If I thought that any employee or any member of staff were using the solicitor for personal business, I would be asking the same question.” In a recorded vote, Rittwage along with Councillors Craig Kerr, Emily Rowley and Mike Vandertoorn approved going ahead with the report. Walas and Councillors Tadman and John Martinello were opposed.

The motion should further extend to recommending some sort of an action plan modelled on the Bay of Quinte Remedial Action Plan and several others that are available. “It would be very worthwhile for a non-profit group, a Friends of Presqu’ile Bay, to be formed because that group can find funding, they can encourage and be the champions to get something done to fix the problems that go on.” Kerr amended the original motion asking for the addition of a remedial action plan based on the water

“fantastic nominees” for the presentations. There were eight seminars and workshops being offered to the local business community throughout the week, all designed to help businesses access the information they need to improve and maximize their efforts to grow and develop. There was no cost to attend one of these seminars.  “Businesses are encouraged to find at least one seminar during the week they can fit into their already busy schedules,” says Mike McLeod. “These seminars are a great way to pick up new ideas and best practices to bring back to your own company.” On Tuesday, October 16, there was a Mega Mixer at The Grange of Prince Edward Estate Winery sponsored by TD Bank. Also, the Quinte Business Achievement Awards Gala was during this week on October 18 at Highline Hall in Wellington, Prince Edward County. This year over 80 businesses from throughout the region completed the nomination process and everyone

“This year in the Quinte Region the four local Chambers of Commerce from Belleville, Brighton, Prince Edward County and Quinte West have joined forces to bring a week’s worth of events to our local businesses,” says Suzanne Andrews, manager of the Quinte West Chamber of Commerce.

The week kicked off at the Quinte Business Development Centre at 284B Wallbridge-Loyalist Road on Monday, October 15. Representatives from all four Chambers of Commerce spoke at the official opening, as well as Quinte West Mayor John Williams and Councillor Tom Lafferty representing Belleville. “Small business owners excel at many things,” Lafferty said, noting he is the owner of a small business himself. “They are hard workers, masters of many disciplines, risk takers and innovators. We need to stand up and be proud.” Bruce Davis, executive director of Trenval, invited the guests to tour the newly renovated facility. Chris King, executive director of Quinte Economic Development Commission for Belleville, Quinte West and Brighton, said it is their job to attract and retain businesses to the area.

Nobel booby prize? EMC Editorial Maybe they gave the Nobel Peace Prize to the European Union because they couldn’t think of anybody else who wouldn’t embarrass them. Nelson Mandela already has one. So does Aung Gwynne Dyer San Suu Kyi. Even Barak Obama has one, though what for is not exactly clear. They even gave it to Henry Kissinger once, but we probably shouldn’t go into that. So who’s left? We’ll just give it to the European Union. Nobody’ll notice that. But they did notice, and some of them were not amused. “A Nobel prize for the EU at a time Brussels and all of Europe is collapsing in misery? What next? An Oscar for (European Council President Herman) Van Rompuy?” asked Geert Wilders, the Dutch eurosceptic. “Rather than bring peace and harmony, the EU will cause insurgency and violence,” warned Nigel Farage, leader of the UK Independence Party (which wants Britain to leave the Union). And France’s leading newspaper, Le Monde, asked on its web site: “But who will go to Oslo for the EU to receive the Nobel Peace Prize? As trivial as it may seem, the question raises (the legitimacy) of an entity … whose institutional stops and starts and lack of democratic representation are regularly criticised.” It’s actually not a trivial question at all, because the large EU bureaucracy that is based in Brussels, the EU’s “capital,” was not elected by anybody, and nobody loves it. The member countries are all democracies, but the decisions at the continent-wide level are taken by governmental elites who do not trust their own citizens to vote the right way. The EU was an elite project from the start, and policy for the 27-member union is still set mostly by politicians and officials, not by citizens. So don’t send a Brussels bureaucrat to Oslo to collect the prize. Send some ordinary citizen, chosen by lot, to represent the 500 million citizens of EU countries who don’t even have a vote on most EU decisions. However, don’t throw the baby out with the bath water. The original purpose of the Nobel Peace Prize was to honour people who worked to put an end to the terrible wars that have repeatedly devastated the European continent (and much of the rest of the world as well) over the past four centuries. The EU has made a major contribution to that task, but that is not its greatest achievement. It has been 67 years since there was a major war in Europe. Indeed, there have been no wars in Europe at all, apart from the various civil wars in the 1990s in former Yugoslavia (which was not a EU member). More

Letter to the editor

important, a war between any of the EU’s member countries is now quite unthinkable. “This started after the [Second World] war - putting together former enemies,” said EU Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso in an interview with the BBC. “It started with six countries and we are now 27, another one [Croatia] is going to join us next year and more want to come. So the EU is the most important project for peace in terms of transnational, supernational cooperation.” That’s a bit over the top. The United Nations surely has more to do with 67 years in which no great powers have fought each other. So do two generations of American and Soviet officials and politicians who showed great restraint and managed to avoid a nuclear war that would have devastated the whole world. You could even give some credit to nuclear weapons themselves, which forced the great powers to behave more prudently than usual. The great virtue of the European Union, despite its “democratic deficit” at the Brussels level, is that all its member countries must be fully democratic, relatively uncorrupt, and fully observant of civil and human rights. Not only has this prevented some members from backsliding into intolerance and authoritarianism in times of great stress; it has also been a huge incentive for prospective members to clean up their act. Would Greece, Spain and Portugal all have ended up as full democracies after overthrowing their old dictators, and in the latter two cases as relatively honest ones as well, if not for the changes they had to make to qualify for EU membership? Would the nine ex-Communist countries of Central Europe that emerged from the long night of Soviet tyranny in 1989 have created modern civil societies practically overnight without a great deal of aid from the EU? Would they even have bothered, without the incentive of future EU membership? Would Turkey have striven so hard to entrench respect for civil rights in the law and force the military to retire to their barracks permanently if it had not been offered the prospect (sadly betrayed) of EU membership? The Nobel Peace Prize is a misnomer. It should actually be the Nobel Democracy and Human Rights Prize. Occasionally it goes to some person or organisation whose main purpose is building international peace, but much more often it goes to people like Nelson Mandela, Aung San Suu Kyi, and most recently Liu Xiaobo, whose accomplishment, or at least goal, has been to make their own countries democratic and respectful of human rights. And if that is the real criterion, then the European Union truly does deserve the prize.

Socialism: the redistribution of wealth

Dear Editor, Why is it that leftist political parties are ever so reluctant to admit their Marxist socialist ideology? It’s largely because they realize most Canadians or Americans don’t trust any party with a socialist agenda so political leaders attempt to portray themselves as defenders of the middle class. It’s definitely the game of stealth politics. Their main objective is to seize power so they can redistribute your tax dollars to those of their choosing. In other words your wealth and labour belongs to the government. It would belong to the collective. The government becomes larger and larger and you become poorer and poorer. Socialism is one small step away from communism, a disease that has murdered millions around the world. A refugee from Romania who lived half her life under Communist tyranny and the other half in the free land of America says President Barack Obama is definitely aiming to transform the U.S. into a Communist society. If Obama is re-elected it’s a done deal. Redistribution of wealth doesn’t equate to equality, fairness or justice but is associated with poverty, slavery and a

complete lack of freedom. Like China and Russia and other European socialist countries, you have millions struggling to exist under a small, elite group of Communist rich who really don’t care about the masses. It’s just like the United Nations. So the Americans have a crucial decision to make in November. Will they give up a life of entrenched freedoms in favour of socialist manacles and a Greek-like future? Or will they elect a new president who has promised to restore American values and finally end the Obama nightmare? Most sensible Canadians are hoping freedom wins out over socialism’s redistribution of wealth. I don’t think Canada is looking forward to another Hugo Chavez government on its border. If socialism is the utopia the leftists insist it is why has the U.S. developed into the greatest, most prosperous and most generous country in the world under free enterprise capitalism? Rolly Ethier, Campbellford

Teach them when they’re young By Terry Bush EMC Editorial - You don’t have to be smart to be an Education Minister or so it would seem in the province of Quebec. News last week that Quebec Education Minister Marie Malavoy thinks that English classes in Grades 1 and 2 are detrimental to French speaking children’s language development should come as no surprise. After all, the Parti Quebecois is now at the helm of a minority government in that province. She’s also of the opinion that intensive English classes starting in Grade 6 should be put on hold for a while instead of implementing them in all schools by 2015, the timetable of the former Liberal government. Many Quebec parents don’t share her opinion. Those parents are probably right. Even though they want to preserve their French language and culture, parents realize that to get ahead in the rest of the country, English will be required. While no doubt the opinions of the education minister are politically motivated, she may just not be bright enough to realize that most young children have a natural ability to learn language at a very young age and most have no problem learning more than one. Seldom will they ever confuse the two. This can’t always be said for the older generation as those of us with parents or in-laws from another country can attest. My wife’s parents and other older family members were notorious for conversing in two different languages at the same time and probably didn’t even realize they were doing it. And I’m sure this particular quirk isn’t found only in immigrants from Holland. I’m reminded of a little boy who lived next door to my inlaws in St. Catharines. He was a cute little guy, not the least bit shy who by now is probably quite the charming young man in his mid-twenties. Phil could be found hanging around whenever someone new happened to be parked in the driveway next door. He would stand in his yard smiling away until you spoke to him and then he would easily engage you in conversation. He was probably only five years old at the time but was certainly the gregarious type. We looked forward to seeing Phil whenever we made the trip and phone calls to Mare’s parents always inquired about Phil’s well being. Mare’s parents enjoyed him as well. The thing about Phil was, he’d chatter away to you in perfect English or as perfect as you could expect from someone his age and when his parents would call for him to come inside, he would always respond with a paragraph or two in French explaining that he would be in for supper in a few minutes. He was completely bilingual. Now if a five- or six-year-old can be completely bilingual in Ontario, what’s to stop a child in Quebec. Well, the short answer is, a separatist government. All around the world children are being taught English as a second language starting at a very early age. Anyone who has ever watched an interview with a Swedish hockey player will note that many Swedes speak English with very little accent whatsoever. You don’t learn that overnight. On a trip to Holland a decade ago, we sat with Mare’s uncle in a little restaurant in Amsterdam having a coffee and a 20-yearold woman sat nearby speaking to a friend on the phone. As we always do when we hear English spoken in a foreign land, we asked her where she was from. “Amsterdam,” she said without any trace of a Dutch accent. “We learn English from the time we start school and French, German and Spanish.” There were obviously no problems with her learning a second language and a third, fourth and fifth. So, does Marie Malavoy have any kind of case stating that young children would have trouble keeping two languages straight? Au contraire, a young child would probably relish the chance to learn another language especially a language that is pretty close to being the default second language of the world. Take a ride on the Toronto subway system and just listen to the kids switch back and forth between English and the language of their grandparents whether it be Mandarin Chinese, Greek, Italian or Portuguese. When we were young, we spoke pig Latin just for fun, thinking all the while we were putting something over on the adults around us who no doubt thought the same thing when they were little. Languages were fun, even the made up ones. To my way of thinking, French, Spanish and English should be offered at every school in Canada. Then again, I like to travel and being fluent in three different languages will take you places you never thought possible. English will let you get by in many cities around the world. Spanish will allow you to travel the back roads of the U.S., Mexico, Central America, South America, Spain and Portugal and won’t do you any harm in Italy either. French will get you by in Quebec, parts of the Maritimes, France and most of Africa. My nephew married a woman from Belarus and brought her and her young son to Canada not knowing whether she could find work. He didn’t need to worry. She could speak Russian, German and English and quickly found herself a job on Bay Street. Her very young son speaks English and Russian. Language skills translate easily into the world of business. Knowledge of different languages will get you off the tour bus and into the lives of real people the world over. And it will help land you a nice little government job in Canada as well, maybe even in the province of Quebec. Quinte West EMC - Thursday, October 18, 2012


Community Care Brighton salutes its volunteers By Ray Yurkowski

EMC Lifestyles - Brighton - Community Care program co-ordinator Judy Murtha says last week’s recognition night was a way to honour and celebrate their volunteers. It was the 24th time the multi-service organization tipped their hat to those who have helped provide a wide range of home support services in Brighton.

And judging by the 140 or so folks who attended the event, there’s been a lot of support for an idea that took shape at Murtha’s kitchen table two-dozen years ago. “If it weren’t for volunteers, there would be no Community Care,” she said. “Without them we are nothing. They are the vital component of the agency.” “Without you and the other one thousand volun-

teers in Northumberland County, we would not be able to impact the lives of so many individuals,” Community Care Northumberland executive director Trish Baird told the crowd. She referred to a survey of 150 clients and volunteers across the county “to hear about their experience with our agency.” “It was clear, the most important part of our ser-

vice was the relationship they developed with the volunteer,” she said. “It was the small things, many of us take for granted, that was appreciated by our clients.” “Here comes my angel,” was how one client referred to their Community Care volunteer. There have been many changes over the years says Murtha. “But what hasn’t changed is, you, the volunteer,” she said. “Each of you brings a valuable piece to the puzzle. No matter what the job, each of you play a very important role in the dayto-day lives of people you barely know.”

Since April 2011, Community Care Brighton volunteers have served 555 clients by providing 25,765 hours of their time, 10,488 hours of friendly visits, delivering 9,866 meals and providing 5,622 drives over 178,304 kilometres. Also attending the event were MP Rick Norlock, MPP Rob Milligan and Mayor Mark Walas. And Norlock summed it up in only a few words. “We could not run our communities without you,” he said. “Thank you for all you do. It is my honour and privilege to say I know people like you.” Murtha estimates there

are about 165 “really involved” volunteers and another 60 who help out once or twice a year for different programs or events at the Brighton branch of Community Care. “There’s something everybody can give,” she said. And there’s always room for more. “There’s always room at this inn,” said Murtha with a chuckle. Community Care Brighton can be contacted by calling 613-475-4190 or, in person, at 46 Prince Edward Street. In Colborne, Community Care can be reached at 905-355-2989 or at 11 King Street East.

Concerns still being raised By Kate Everson

Community Care Brighton staff—from the left: program assistant Mary Wilkes, office administrator Christine Bowman and program co-ordinator Judy Murtha—celebrated their volunteers last week with a British-themed evening in honour of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. “The three of us want to thank you for what you’ve given us and making our job so easy,” Murtha told the crowd.

Angelo said there are clauses in the agreement to monitor wells. “If there are any negative effects on the wells, the developer will connect you to municipal services at no cost to you.” Another resident asked if there would be a gate on Orchard Lane. Angelo said there will be no gate. The committee approved 100 units for 113 Orchard Lane, with a draft condition to include an update on the traffic study. The lane will be upgraded to a full municipal urban standard with curbs, sidewalk on one side, street lights, municipal water, wastewater and storm sewers. The city is oversizing the water main and sanitary sewer system to accommodate the new development. Treatment strategies are in place in the Mayhew Creek Master Drainage Plan, with all benefitting properties to share in the cost. The Draft Plan provides access to three properties, Webb, DeWal and Smits fronting Orchard Lane.

Mark Klemencic said all agreements will be in place before the final agreement. He said he hoped to get approval for 288 lots. Mayor John Williams said the approvals all have to be in place for the 100 lots first. Klemencic asked if they were going to approve all the lots or he should change the plan to 100 lots, calling the procedure a “nightmare.” Other residents asked if the cost was going to go up every time they added more homes. Angelo said the cost of reconstructing a roadway will all be borne by the developer. “The homeowner will have no cost to the upgrades on the road,” he said. The only cost to local residents would be if they decided to hook up to the city water and sewer lines. One resident asked what would happen if they damage her well while digging

EMC News - Quinte West Residents who live near a proposed subdivision on Orchard Lane shared their concerns at a recent Public Works and Environmental Services committee meeting. “We are just approving the traffic and surveying strategy,” noted director Chris Angelo. “The rest goes through the Planning Department.” Orchard Lane Development Corporation plans to proceed with the subdivision at the northeast limit of Orchard Lane that includes 225 single detached lots, access roadway, stormwater management, parkland and municipal services. The proposal was first submitted in 2007 by Mark Klemencic. Residents along Orchard Lane expressed concerns about traffic, lighting, noise and increased costs. One resident asked what they were going to do about noise from the 401. Project and development co-ordinator John Gooding said there was nothing they can do about that, but the subdivision will

Curling and replacement of arena related

By Ray Yurkowski

EMC News - Brighton - As reported last week, the Curling Club Task Force presented their case to municipal council at their regular meeting on Monday night. The report clears up some misconceptions after consultants presented the King Edward Park master plan in January. The plan looked at the future of recreational facilities at the park and gave the club low marks for the viability of the game in Brighton. For the task force, this was their opportunity to correct some of those inaccuracies. “The club offers a wide range of opportunities to play,” said task force member Bruce Tollefson. “And there’s quite an emphasis on student and junior curling. I think it’s

committee agreed to extend the contract with Carter Marketing for Robert Patrick Marina and Fraser Park Marina for one year (2013) with an optional second year in 2014. Carter Marketing has been operating the marinas for several years with many letters of support from boaters commenting on the commitment of Sandra and Craig Carter. The agreement was for a five-year term from March 20, 2006 expiring December 31, 2010, with a two-year extension until the end of 2012.

game to the community.” The report highlighted a recommendation showing how the future of curling and the eventual replacement of the 34-year-old arena are closely related. The logical choice would be a shared facility to take advantage of the common need for ice-making equipment. The task force convened in June with at least one meeting scheduled per month. Council approved adding the report to the King Edward Park and Indoor Recreation Facilities Master Plan. The task force report will provide some valuable input to assist the council of the day to assist them in their decision-making said municipal CAO Gayle Frost.

Dog Bites and Cat Licks show up at crafts show By Kate Everson

EMC News - Quinte West Natural homemade dog and cat treats were an unusual addition to the crafts show held at Bayside Secondary School on Saturday put on by the Trenton Craft Guild. “They’re all natural,” said Yvonne Boyer from Castleton. “I make them myself.” Yvonne said the treats contain no wheat, but may include oat flour, eggs, sunflower oil, milk, cornmeal and peanut butter. “I just use natural peanut butter,” she adds. “Not the kind with all the additives.” Yvonne also makes dog bandanas of all colours, sizes and patterns. She started

making pet products three years ago to add to her jewellery business. She goes to local craft shows with her line of glass, silver, crystal and semi-precious stone jewellery made at home. “Three years ago I lost my job,” she says. “That’s how I got started.” The Trenton Craft Guild show called “Autumn Bounty” was held in the school gymnasium and had vendors in home and garden, jewellery, knitting and crocheted clothing, woodwork and needlework. The next Quinte Region (including Trenton) Craft Guild show will be held at

the Knights of Columbus Hall on November 3 and 4 featuring handcrafted gifts for the holidays.

Arts Quinte West will be holding an Arts Extravaganza at its downtown Trenton gallery on No-

vember 17 with arts and crafts by 40 local artisans. A Craft Fusion sale and showcase will be held at

the Batawa Community Centre on November 24 with local artists and crafts people.

How to improve your home’s curb appeal Men and women who have tried to sell a home are likely familiar with the phrase “curb appeal.” Curb appeal is similar to getting ready for a big date, only youʼre not dressing yourself up to make a strong first impression. Instead, improving curb appeal involves dressing your home up in the hopes it makes a strong first impression on prospective buyers, many of whom will have a strong opinion about the property before they even get out of their cars to have a look around. A home with strong curb appeal can entice buyers who are likely to believe that a home with a well-maintained exterior is likely to have an equally impressive interior. Homeowners who want the process of selling their home to go smoothly can improve the propertyʼs curb appeal in a number of ways, many of which donʼt necessitate a substantial home improvement budget. * Clean up. The most effective way to improve curb appeal is to clean up the property. Many homeowners are savvy enough to remove toys and other items from the yard before showing a home, but cleaning up goes beyond removing clutter from the property. Make sure all hedges are trimmed and remove weeds, sticks and other debris from any flower beds. Lay mulch in the flower beds and garden, as mulch prevents weed growth while helping the soil retain moisture, resulting in more attractive gardens to catch a buyerʼs eye. * Get an “edge” on other sellers. Edging is another easy and effective way to improve curb appeal. Edge driveways, sidewalks and other walkways

around t h e property, removing or trimming anything that is hanging over the driveway or walkways. If the boundary between your driveway and lawn is not distinct, consider installing edging materials such as stone or bricks. The edging can be level with the driveway or elevated, but keep in mind that elevated driveway edging can protect the lawn, preventing kids from riding their bicycles onto the lawn or cars from driving onto it. Adding edging is not a very difficult do-it-yourself project. * Take to the trees. Many homeowners grow accustomed to overgrown trees around their property and may not notice that low-hanging, unsightly branches are hiding the home from view. Buyers want to see the house, so take to the trees and trim any branches that hang too low or obscure your home. * Clean the gutters. Leaves and sticks hanging from the gutters are a red flag to buyers, who tend to associate clogged gutters with roof dam-




up to

age. Clean the gutters thoroughly before putting your home up for sale and keep them clean throughout the selling process. If your property includes lots of trees, install guards to keep twigs and leaves out of the gutters. * Make the home accessible through the front door. Many homeowners enter their home through a side door or through their garage. If you fall into this category, keep in mind that prospective buyers will be entering through the front door, so make this area accessible. Clear any clutter, such as overgrown hedges, away from the front door, and consider upgrading the door handle to a more modern feature. In addition, make sure the lock on the front door doesnʼt stick, forcing the realtor and buyers to immediately struggle before entering the home. You want buyers and their real estate agents to get in and out of the home as smoothly as possible. * Make sure all plants, including flowers, are living. Dehydrated or dead plants and flowers are eyesores, and they will give buyers the impression that you didnʼt pay much attention to your property. Make sure all plants are alive and thriving and replace those that arenʼt. You can replant new flowers or plants or just use potted plants instead. When purchasing new plants, choose low-maintenance varieties that appeal to buyers who want good vibrant plants but might not want to put in much work into the garden. When selling a home, homeowners can employ a number of tactics to improve their homeʼs curb appeal.

Fire Prevention Week a reminder to Have Two Ways Out

By Kate Everson

EMC News - Quinte West Have Two Ways Out is the theme for this year’s Fire Prevention Week. “For escape from a fire, you need to have two ways out in case one way is blocked,” says

Fire Prevention Officer Greg King. “You can get out a window or a back door. Families need to come up with an escape plan.” He said it is important that children know what to do if

they hear a smoke alarm go off in the house. “Every home needs to have a working smoke alarm, on each floor,” he reminded. “That includes the basement.”

Get the


He said the alarm is an early warning of a fire and people need to get out right away. “Get out and stay out,” he said. “Don’t go back in, even for a pet. It could be risking your life.” He said firefighters will do their best to save a family pet, but leave that up to them. It’s not worth the risk. King also noted that families should have a meeting place set up ahead of time

where they can find each other in case of fire. Then when the firefighters show up, they can tell them if everyone is accounted for. King said the fire marshal comes up with a different slogan every year that is used in fire stations across the province. “They try to find new ways to get the message out,” he said. The fire department set

up at the YMCA on Thursday, October 11, and offered colouring books, crayons, baseball cards, purses and pens with this year’s logo on them. On Saturday, free pizza was offered at Station 1 and 7, thanks to a partnership with Domino’s Pizza in Trenton. “We ordered ten big pizzas for each station and could order more if we ran out,” King said with a smile.

There is a lot of turnover in the restaurant business. We are always on the look out for servers, cooks, bartenders, dishwashers and hostesses. The task of hiring good people is extremely time consuming. That’s why we use Career Edge. Career Edge advertises our available positions and prescreens potential candidates for us. They know what we want in an employee, saving us a lot of time and resources. They have even offset some training costs for a few of the younger, inexperienced staff we have hired. Thanks to Career Edge, I can keep my business moving forward.

programs for the youth in his community. During his years as vice president, then president of the Brighton and District Minor Hockey Association, he worked closely with the Ontario Minor Hockey Association to develop programs to better the local association and expand its presence in this community. He also took a leadership role in fund-raising initiatives to keep registration costs down so more youth could afford to play the sport.

EMC News - Brighton Dozens of family, friends and well-wishers gathered in Brighton last week for another round of Diamond Jubilee medal presentations, this time by MPP Rob Milligan. It turns out; the prestigious awards were doled out to both the federal and provincial representatives to be given out to their constituents. Milligan opened the ceremony with a line from the Aesop fable, “The Lion and the Mouse,” calling it his favourite quote. “No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted,” he said. “I have long believed the people of a community are what make it a beautiful place to live. Each and every one of these individuals has taken the time to make their communities a better place.” The medals mark the 60th anniversary of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s accession to the throne. Jake DeGroot, of Brighton, works as operations superintendent at Agrium Direct Solutions, a company that promotes community awareness at all of their locations. In that role, he worked with seven local schools and the Lower Trent Conservation Authority to run an education program to bring awareness to our local watersheds. He got involved in minor sports so he could promote youth activity and quality





Lions getting scary as Hallowe’en nears By Richard Turtle

EMC News - Stirling Members of the Stirling and District Lions Club are hoping for an increase in the local scarecrow population as the Lions Scarecrow Weekend approaches. Lion Ruth Potts says plans are well under way

for events that begin on October 25 and several local groups and individuals have already offered their support. Residents are being encouraged to decorate for fall and Potts says she is hopeful many of the Hockeyville displays will remain up until Hallowe’en.

Among the supporters already participating in neighbourhood decorating programs are youth groups from the Pentecostal Church as well as members of the Youth Advisory Council, Potts says and with several activities planned at the Lions Hall there has been plenty to do. “I really appreciated the help with the decorating,” Potts says of the hall preparations, adding Richter’s Greenhouse also provided much needed support. Lion Glenn Payne says Scarecrow Weekend kicks off Thursday, October 25, with a Fish Fry at the Lions Hall and organizers are expecting some hungry

customers. From 5 to 7 p.m. dinner will be served at the hall, offering an all you can eat fish buffet with salads, vegetables and desserts. “I think it’ll be pretty busy,” he says. “We’re going to have take out available too so we’ll see how that goes.” Tickets for the dinner are available in advance at Mill Street Collectables (adults $15, children 11 and under $12 and children under five free) or by contacting 613395-3261 or going online

to <stirlinganddistrictlions. com>. Friday night the Lions Hall will feature comedy hypnotist Richard Cole who promises a hilarious evening show when he combines standup comedy with the unexpected antics of audience members. The show begins at 8 p.m. with Cole offering memories that will last a lifetime. Potts has also announced that the Stirling Citizens Band will also be on hand to

perform following the hypnotist show. And while Payne admits it will be a busy weekend for the Lions, there is still more work ahead. As a follow-up to Scarecrow Weekend, the Lions are hosting an Arts and Crafts Sale on November 2 and 3 when the hall will be transformed into a shopping experience featuring 32 tables of arts and crafts from local artisans.

Speed limits reduced on English Settlement Road and Old Highway 2

By Kate Everson

EMC News - Quinte West The Public Words committee has approved a reduction in the speed limit on English Settlement Road to 40 kilometres an hour. “Staff were asked to look into placing a school zone at the Goodwin Learning Centre,” reported Tim Colasante, manager of engineering.

The centre is located on the south side of English Settlement Road west of Flindall Road. The current speed limit is 60 kilometres an hour and the average traffic count is 1,196 vehicles per day. Councillor Jim Harrison said he has received calls from parents concerned with the speed and Councillor Jim

Alyea felt that 60 was too fast in the area. A request for consideration of a speed limit reduction was received from parents of children attending the centre. Public Works staff contacted the OPP and report they are supportive of the reduction in speed limit. Over 45 children attend the

Goodwin Learning Centre, ranging from four to 13 years old, each day of the school year. The school is very close to the road and it is extremely dangerous to pick up and drop off children. “The stretch of road in front of the Goodwin Centre is like a race track,” notes the letter from parents.

The Public Works committee also approved a reduction of the speed limit on Old Highway 2 extended east from Airlift Road (near Quinte View Drive) easterly 356 metres. Tim Colasante noted that this section of the roadway located at the east limits of CFB Trenton has an average count of 5,978 cars

per day and currently includes a temporary signalled entrance into the north side of the base. In addition, as part of Defence construction future plans, work has resumed on the new East Parking Lot Entrance scheduled to open this fall located immediately west on the south side of Old Highway 2.

Volunteers amass staples in plenty for food bank EMC News - Belleville A few tons short but successful. That was the end result of the annual Gleaners Food Bank food drive that saw a small army of volunteers, deployed via city buses, descend upon the residential homes across the city collecting food for the less fortunate. The 20th annual Mega Food Drive benefiting Gleaners is the single most important food collection for the food bank all year long noted Gleaners director of operations Suzanne

Quinlan. The record haul for the local drive is 22 tons and was set a number of years ago thanks to a large corporate donation. This year ITS donated 30 skids of food and Kellogg’s 19 skids of cereal to be shared with the region’s food banks. Residents were asked to leave non-perishable food on their doorsteps. Starting at noon Sunday, about 450 volunteers comprised of cadets, Scouts, a contingent from Albert College and community minded individuals worked to collect,

sort and pack the food. Four city buses piloted by drivers who donated their time canvassed the city bringing their haul of food back to the Wallbridge Crescent food bank. Quinlan noted roughly two thirds of the city would be canvassed, with the other third handled by community stewards who opened up their homes as collection points. Quinlan said UPS delivery drivers brought in more from apartment buildings, grocery stores and neighbourhood stewards. “It’s a real community effort,” she said.

Community loses last reeve, first mayor

EMC News - Stirling Funeral services were held Tuesday at St. Paul’s United Church in Stirling for longtime municipal councillor Marian Bastedo who passed away in hospital last week at the age of 86. After a career in banking, Bastedo was first elected to municipal council in 1989, later serving as the last reeve of the Village of Stirling from 1995-1997 before serving as the amalgamated Township of Stirling-Rawdon’s first mayor until 2000. Following amalgamation, she again sat as a StirlingRawdon councillor from 2004 until 2010. But it wasn’t only her professional and political

accomplishments that family remembers, says her son Robert. “The way they brought us up,” he says of both his parents, “had a strong influence on how we raised our own children.” Robert is one of five siblings who, he says, always received encouragement and support as well as an innate sense of family and community. “Along with doing all the council stuff, which we’re really proud of, she also raised five kids,” he says. And along the way continued a family interrupted banking career to become one of the industry’s first female managers. Former Mayor Peter Kooistra, who served on StirlingRawdon council for ten years

alongside Bastedo, says she was always committed to the people and the community whether as a politician, volunteer or resident. “I learned a lot from her,” he says, “and she was good to work with.” And despite differing opinions at times around the council table, Kooistra says, they remained friends through their shared political years and beyond. “She was a very knowledgeable person who was passionate about whatever she did,” he adds, “And Marian did an awful lot.” Bastedo was predeceased by husband Robert (Bert) and is remembered by children Robert, Sue-Anne Smith, Beth Brown, Jackie Dion and Doug Bastedo.

Quinlan said she hoped to collect between 20 and 25 tons of food, but she wasn’t disappointed with the end result. “People are generous; if they find out we are down on food the floodgates will open again. I’m just glad the community has pulled together to make this happen,” she said. Gleaners Food Bank is the hub of the Tri-County Food Network, an association of about nine area food banks. The Gleaners office is at 25 Wallbridge Crescent, north of Moira Street West and just west of Coleman Street. Volunteers and donations are always needed.

Mom, son reach karate pinnacle together By Richard Turtle

EMC Sports - Stirling While the Trent Valley Judo Club is currently celebrating its 30th year of operating in Hastings County schools, it did mark a rare first this summer when a pair of members earned their black belts on the same day. Under the guidance of Senseis Bev and Bob Leonard, the club has seen several similar accomplishments realized and personal goals reached but none quite like this. Kyle Clapp, a 16-yearold Bayside student, completed the five-and-a-halfhour test at the YMCA in Trenton earning the martial art’s highest distinction along with his mother Garnet. Kyle admits it has been a lot of work. “It’s very controlled and very strict discipline,” he says and was

something he enjoyed from the very first classes ten years ago. And now that he has his black belt, there are several different degrees so the work and the training will continue. “It’s a lifelong thing,” he says. Garnet agrees. After spending several weeks watching her son, she decided to get into the act as well. And that, says Bev, is only natural. “We have two kids and we started it as a family club,” she says of that day 30 years ago. And the Leonard couple, now both holding their sixth degree black belts, says siblings and parents are encouraged to participate together. But Garnet admits she didn’t take to it quite as quickly as her son. “It is hard to learn,” Garnet says of some of the many

elements involved in what is both a physical and mental exercise. And shedding the self-consciousness was another big step. But once her training began in earnest, she says, it all started to come naturally and karate has done far more than she expected both for herself and her son. As well as being a confidence builder, she notes, it is also physically demanding, something that comes in handy when training horses. “It does help that,” she says. “You work the body and the mind and I think that helps everything.” As the days leading up to their black belt tests approached, the mother and son joined other classes to help prepare for the physical endurance required. The club meets regularly in Stirling on Thursday eve-

nings beginning at 7 p.m. at the Stirling Primary School with sessions for both new and experienced athletes. Earning a black belt requires both an understanding of the structure and philosophies of the provincially recognized martial art as well as having the stamina to endure more the gruelling test. The test also involves sparring and the Clapps admit that would have been far more uncomfortable if they had been paired off against each other but under the circumstances the grading board made adjustments. And after a day of physical and mental strain, participants are expected to break a board. They say there is no trick to the feat, offering a stationary target and plenty of time to prepare, but after a day of quick responses there

is a requirement for complete focus and under those

stresses can prove a daunting task.

Municipality launches sustainability plan By Richard Turtle

EMC News - Stirling - It took months to put it all together but local officials now have a roadmap for the future in the recently adopted Integrated Community Sustainability Plan (ICSP). Accepted recently by council and presented at an open meeting last week at the emergency services building the 50-page document provides an overview of the community and its people offering goals and actions for decision makers. Prepared by Theresa Dostaler and Tabatha Leonard of Synergy Research, the project involved the creation

of subcommittees, public meetings and a study of the local area that envelopes the economy, environment, culture and public services. Stirling-Rawdon CAO Kevin Heath, who opened the meeting with introductions and a brief explanation of the ICSP, says the work was undertaken to update a 2005 strategic plan for the community. Completed in about a year, Dostaler explained that the Plan examined the four pillars defined as Social, Economic, Environment and Culture in Stirling-Rawdon by soliciting input from the community itself. And

by outlining assets and liabilities within municipal borders, she added, a cohesive action plan can be created to maximize resources. Goals include protecting and promoting the area’s history and heritage, improving environmental awareness, improving personal fitness and wellness and meeting the housing needs of residents. Actions to meet those goals included promotional programs and marketing, community networking and encouraging individual involvement. Essentially the document outlines the needs and wants of a com-

munity, providing steps to improve relationships between stakeholders and the services available.

“You have to look at what’s feasible and what’s not.” “We’re happy with the result,” Dostaler says of the final ICSP, noting the one-year process was less than what is normally expected but involved seven months of intensive research, meetings and doc-

umentation. Questioned about housing and the potential for growth, Heath says that in light of increased lagoon capacity more development is anticipated, including as many as 30 new units in the coming months. The ICSP, he says, will be tracked by the economic development committee and will help guide today’s and future municipal leaders. Complaints were also heard regarding senior’s services and housing. “You have to look at what’s feasible and what’s not,” Heath says of the overall plan noting budgetary restrictions always

play a role. “So you follow up on the priorities.” Key strategies include engaging business leaders, promoting volunteerism and highlighting local attractions. So there is still more to be done, Economic Development Officer Elisha Maguire says, adding the plan represents a starting point for action but also takes into consideration the changing needs of the community. “Subcommittees will be crucial moving forward,” she says. And the process will continue to evolve while taking into consideration the changing needs of the community.

Fall is Here!


Beer Fest a flavourful fall feature By Richard Turtle

EMC Events - Stirling - It was an opportunity to taste dozens of varieties of craft beers as well as sample several prepared dishes featuring local produce when The Hastings County Beer Festival returned to Farmtown Park last weekend. Organized by Griffin Gastropub’s Curt Dunlop, the second annual event was again a hit with hundreds of visitors who were treated to an expanded version of last year’s festival with more than two dozen food and drink vendors offering unusual and interesting flavour combinations. Beers brewed with chocolate or pumpkin were available alongside more traditional ales and lagers to complement servings of fresh cheese curd, meatless hot dogs, beef sliders or water buffalo roast. Stretching through several of the museum buildings,

including the showcase Heritage Village where the bulk of vendors were located, two sessions were hosted last Saturday afternoon and evening with a significantly larger crowd arriving for the second round. While exact numbers were immediately unavailable, afternoon crowds were estimated by several officials at about 250. Approximately twice as many arrived for the evening session, which ran from 5 until 8 p.m. “It wasn’t quite the number we’d hoped for,” says Dunlop, but adds the increase in both the size and scope of the event compared to last year is encouraging for the festival’s future. Live entertainment, provided by numerous wellknown Canadian musicians including Nova Scotia’s Old Man Luedecke and Winnipeg singer/songwriter Del Barber, was ongoing throughout with

performers stationed at various locations along the winding trail of food and drink. Farmtown Park President Ron Reid was pleased with the crowds and was among several museum volunteers who commented on the large number of out-of-town guests. And with officials available to answer any questions about museum services, Reid says it was a perfect opportunity to promote the facility. Hastings County Economic Development Manager Andrew Redden who was among the several hundred in attendance, says the event offers local producers an opportunity to show off the diversity of the area as well as highlight local tourist attractions. Guests, who paid about $40 for each three-hour session, arrived from Belleville, Kingston and Bancroft areas with some travelling from as far away as western Ontario

Ontario Water Buffalo Company owner Lori Smith was kept busy during the Hastings County Beer Festival last weekend at Farmtown Park. The event featured food and drink from local farms and small producers.

Country jam returns for another season By Judy Backus

EMC Entertainment Marmora - On the second Sunday afternoon of the month between the hours of 1 and 4:30 from now through to May, members of the Marmora Crowe Valley Lions Club will be hosting the very popular Country Jam sessions. The first musical afternoon of the season took place on October 14 when a total of 18 different entertainers from the local area as well as Havelock, Warkworth, Chatterton Valley, Tweed, Belleville, Napanee, and more arrived to join one of two stage bands for a music filled afternoon. As the flyer advertising the sessions pointed out, “Bring your instruments and join us in celebrating country music and great local talent!” The invitation was heeded and the musicians arrived in force. The audience, which numbered 160, sat around tables, sang along, took to the dance floor or enjoyed a beverage and a snack while listening to a wide variety of styles and tunes. The fun has been ongoing for the past several years and, as Lion Leo Pro-

vost pointed out with music playing in the background and dancers crowding the floor, “It is gaining in popularity.” Another, Winston Wylie, commented, “It’s got to be good or they wouldn’t keep coming back.” One gentleman who

to attend. And the evening proved busy for the vendors. Jeff Ferguson who along with his wife Jennifer were serving ham, bacon and sausage from their own Springbrook Farm, says crowds were thick and keeping up was no easy feat. “We were just going for the first hour,” he says of the evening session and the initial rush. “This afternoon was quieter but tonight was crazy.” But he admits being a participant in the past two festivals is a step up from farm work. “It beats sitting on a tractor,” he says.

a score of 3 - 2, but outplayed the Raiders for the better part of the match. Scoring for Quinte were Jacob Gilbert and Josh Quick. In net for game one was Ethan Mcdonnell who played a very solid game. Player of the game went to Maddi Wheeler. Game two brought on the North York Rangers from Greater Toronto. Quinte went into the second frame with a one-goal lead but ran into penalty trouble and gave up four second-period goals. Quinte never quit and battled the Rangers all the way to the end and dropped game two by a score of 4 - 2. Scoring for Quinte were Jacob Gilbert and Marshall McFarland. Assists went to McFarland, Maddi Wheeler, Cayde Culhane, and Jacob Vreugdenhil. In net was Matthew Tovell who was very good, and also collected MVP of the game. Game three of the tournament was against Seaway. Seaway scored two goals and beat the Red Devils 2 - 0. In net was Ethan Mcdonnell who stood tall. Game MVP was Maddi Wheeler. Game four was a do-ordie situation. Kingston took an early one-goal lead with Quinte’s Adam Thistlethwaite quickly responding to tie the game. Jacob Gilbert then put the Red Devils on top as he buried a rebound in close and put the team ahead for the rest of the game. Quinte went on to win the game by a score 2 - 1. In net was Matthew Tovell who collected MVP and stopped several Kingston shots.

The Atoms found themselves in the semi-finals on Sunday as they had their chance of redemption against the Ajax Raiders. Quinte once again dominated the game but unfortunately came up short by a score of 3 - 2. Down 2 0 in the second period, Jacob Gilbert buried a loose puck and Quinte started to pour on the pressure. Dominating the third period, Quinte finally solved the Ajax net minder for the second time as Marshall McFarland scored to tie the game at two with only three minutes to play. Unfortunately, Ajax got a lucky bounce and a puck deflected off of two sticks and found the back of the net with 58 seconds to go. Quinte pulled Ethan McDonnell and pushed

Phillipe Gagnon was in net for the loss. On Sunday, the Devils faced the Whitby Wildcats in Belleville. Goals scored by Graiden Maynard and Brodie Maracle, with assists going to Greg Thomas, Austin Fry and Austin Labelle, gave Quinte a chance, but Whitby came out hard in the third period and went home with a 6 - 2 victory. Jack Moore was in net for the loss. Team record is now 3 - 5 on the season. The Devils travel to Peterborough this weekend to play in the Icefest Tournament.

Juniors All-stars Blue and seniors are Red By Michael J Brethour

EMC Sports - Belleville Red and blue all-stars girls went head-to-head last week in the annual All-Stars Classic at Nicholson Catholic College last week. Blue beat Red 56 - 24 in the junior showdown, followed by a 42 - 36 victory for Team Red over Team Blue in the senior showdown. Junior results: Team Blue dominated the boards with key rebounding provided by Megan Edwards, Nicole Loveys and Mackenzie McCullough. Kirsten Maracle led the Blues with 10 points, while Game MVP, Taylor Blair, also scored 10. Mikenzie Richard chipped in with eight.

Rounding out the Blues scoring were Chelsey Mondoux-Hebert, 8, and Julia Tees, 1. Other team members were Jordin Legate and Sarah Woods. Seven Reds hit the scoresheet, including Game MVP Brooke Fleming with eight points. Other team members were Mariah Bowers, Caroline Simons, Nicole Sharp, Melissa Hinch, Madison Blakely, Ashley Wight, Dakota O’Hara, Danielle Willis and Allie Kerr. Senior results: In a back-and-forth battle, with several lead changes, Team Red came out on top at the final buzzer. Size was a factor in the outcome, with Team Red’s physical advan-

tage on the boards countering the speed of the Blues. Team Red was led by Game MVP Courtney Wilson, with 11 points, while Sarah Ducette and Nicole Burdon contributed eight points apiece. Other members of the Reds were Tanya Couperus, Jordan Gardiner, Rebekkah Hall, Britney Bates, Erin O’Brien, Tessa Mills and Mikayla Brennan. Team Blue MVP and leading rebounder was Claire Smith. She tied for the team lead in scoring with Brenna Cavanaugh, each with eight points. Other team members were Danielle Brazeau, Shauna Vinkle, Brooke Bressette, Brogan Courtney and Jessica Warrener.

On the Rocks: Trenton Curling Club news

EMC Sports - As if on cue, the long hot summer has given way to the blustery start of the Great White North’s winter season, and that turns our focus from summer activities to those involving snow and ice. Quite fitting then, that The Trenton Curling Club launched its 2012/2013 season this past weekend with a twist. Instead of clinics and league curling, it opened with a show of appreciation of our military community. Up until 1991, there were

two curling clubs in Trenton: one at the base and the other in town. In 1991, for reasons too lengthy to mention here, the clubs amalgamated into the Trenton Curling Club. It is no surprise then, that a fair number of our members are retired from the Armed Forces. However, over the intervening years, and probably owing to a lack of awareness of the club, membership of serving servicemen/ women declined. The more cynical among us might say our military appreciation

day was then just a thinly disguised membership drive. I would like to think of it more along the lines of reacquainting ourselves with our historical roots, while at the same time showing our community appreciation for service to country. It was gratifying to see the turnout, and those who attended were treated to hamburgers, hot dogs, munchies, beverages, rocks and rings and face painting for the kids, onice introductory curling sessions, and a number of door

prizes. Also attending were MP Rick Norlock, MPP Rob Milligan and Mayor John Williams; each brought greetings from their respective levels of government, paid tribute to the dedicated service of our members of the armed forces, and their integration into all aspects of service to the community. Colonel Sean Friday, Commander 8 Wing/ CFB Trenton, responded with words of appreciation on behalf of the service members, but emphasized that the men and women who wear the

uniform in their service to their country consider that in itself an honour, without need for any further recognition. The VIPs then took to the ice for a demonstration of curling finesse and intergovernmental co-operation. The organizing committee would like to thank the following clubs and businesses for their generous support in sponsoring this event: JB Print Solutions, Trenton Lions Club, Tim Hortons (Ron and Jeri Joyce), Walmart, Smylie’s Independent

Grocer, Mrs. B’s Country Candies, Giant Tiger, RE/ Max (Joanne and Frank Hormann), Scotiabank (both locations), Metro, Farmers’ Market, Crazy Dogs Pet Styling, and the Kinsmen for the use of their sign. If you missed this event, drop by the club and inquire about free clinics. (Now that’s a membership plug). For more information on the club, the leagues, and the season, please visit our web site at <>.

Bulls rock Generals thanks to Malcolm

EMC Sports - Belleville Bulls goaltender Malcolm Subban was in top form on Saturday night. Subban made a whopping 44 saves paving the road to a 4 - 1 Bulls victory over the Oshawa Generals at the Yardmen Arena. Subban’s stellar performance came 24 hours after his Belleville goaltending stable mate, Charlie Graham, slammed the door on the hometown Brampton Battalion, earning his first career OHL shutout with a 30-save effort in a 2 - 0 Bulls victory. The Bulls took an early lead thanks to Brendan Gaunce who clocked a goal

at 1:23 into the first period. The Bulls increased their lead on the powerplay at 4:43 into the frame as Jordan Subban sailed a neat pass to Austen Brassard cross-ice to make it 2 - 0. Oshawa made an attempt to come back and their persistence paid off at 8:51 into the period, with Chris Carlisle tallying one for the Generals. Daniil Zharkov accounted for the Bull’s third goal at 2:37 in the third stanza. The Bulls were finally able to put Oshawa away with an empty net goal from Michael Curtis with 21 seconds remaining on the clock. The Bulls were outshot 16 - 10 in the third period and 45 - 28

for the night. Bulls general manager George Burnett praised the team’s performance noting that the Bulls had played five games that week, something that may have accounted for being outshot by the Generals. “To get two points and an outstanding performance from Malcolm was good,” stated Burnett. The 6-2-1-0 Bulls sit tied for second in the Eastern Conference headed into Sunday. They’re off until Thursday night when they travel north to battle the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds at 7:07 p.m. They’ll then visit the Sudbury Wolves on Friday night at 7:35 p.m.

Cornerstone Peewees EMC Sports - In game one of a two-game road trip Evan Morrison stood on his head leading the Cornerstone Peewees in a 4 - 0 shutout against the Barrie Colts. Nathan Dunkley led the team in scoring with a hat trick and one assist. Dawson Baker had the other goal plus two assists. Other helpers went to Zack Wheeler and Ethan Johnston. On Sunday the team travelled to Rama to play the North Central Predators and fell short in a 5 - 2 loss. Scott Belanger led the scoring in this game with one goal and one assist. Matt Sherwin also scored a goal and Zack Nicholson had a lone helper. Pierce Nelson back-stopped the Red Devils with a good performance in net.

Alarm Systems Minor Peewee On Saturday, the Alarm Systems Minor Peewees were defeated 4 - 2 in Barrie. Quinte’s goals were scored by Cole Leal and Jake Campbell. Assists went to Dalton Bancroft and Elijah Brahaney. On Sunday, the team continued their northern trip in a game against North Central. North Central led 2 - 1 after one, but Quinte was able to score two in the second. Final score was a 3 - 3 tie. Goals were scored by Elijah Brahaney, Colby Crowe and Jake Campbell. Assists went to Jake Campbell, Landon MsLellan and Nate MacAusland. The Minor Peewees next game is October 18 versus Central Ontario.

Duvanco Homes Minor Bantam It’s five straight for the Duvanco Homes Minor Bantams, as they shut out the Barrie Minor Colts 6 - 0 in Barrie. Anthony Popovich was solid in the net to earn his second shutout of the season. Scoring for the Devils were Brady Gilmour and Jake Wilson with two each and Colin VanDenHurk and Shelby Rienstra with singles. Assists were contributed by Jakob Brahaney (2), Scoley Dow (2), Matthew Panetta, Ryan Smith, Aidan McFarland, Nick Hoey, Rienstra, and VanDenHurk. Next action for the Minor Bantams is Sunday, October 21, in Orillia against the North Central Predators.

Bulls announce trade with Niagara EMC Sports - Belleville - Belleville Bulls Head Coach and General Manager George Burnett announced Friday morning that the club has dealt sophomore winger Mack Lemmon to the Niagara IceDogs in exchange for a thirdround draft pick in the 2015 OHL Priority Selection. A native of Aurora, Lemmon played in 52 career games with Belleville. He’s

suited up in seven games this season. “Mack is a quality young man who is deserving of a better opportunity than the one we can provide him at the present time,” said Burnett. “We wish him all the best in Niagara.” Following the trade, the Bulls now carry 23 players on their roster, consisting of 14 forwards, seven defencemen and two goaltenders.

Scouts get popping By Michael J Brethour

EMC News - Belleville - Area Scouts are “popping” this fall. Algonquinte Scouts are joining thousands of other Scouts across the country in the annual Scouts national fund-raising campaign. The campaign is launched every year in October and the delicious high-quality popcorn can be enjoyed throughout the fall. Since its inception in 1989, Scout Popcorn has generated more than $100 million in sales with over 60 per cent of the funds going back into the community to support local Scouting activities. Chris McArthur, popcorn coordinator for Algonquinte, said groups from all over the region, including all the way up to Bancroft, down to Napanee and across to Quinte West, are involved. “I don’t know the exact number of Scouts involved selling the popcorn but there are at least ten groups participating,” he said.

McArthur said the Belleville group usually sells roughly $4,000 in popcorn each year. “The Scouts name is recognized and the popcorn is a yearly tradition everyone recognizes,” he said. He noted youth have had real success going door-to-door selling popcorn; in fact he said that one individual had already recorded selling of $400. McArthur said the funds are used to subsidize Scout camps and activities “For example with the funds that come in from these activities allow us to keep our weekend camp costs down to the five- or ten-dollar range,” he said. Those interested in ordering popcorn to support the Scouts can email <> to get order forms and McArthur noted that orders can be done via email as well.

EMC News - Quinte West - Lou DeVuono, vice president of the Perfect Pigs Motorcycle Club and Graeme Hume, founder of the Ride, are planning the fifth annual Heroes Highway Ride to honour veterans of the Afghanistan conflict. They appeared before council to ask permission to use Centennial Park on June 1 and 2 to assemble motorcycle riders for a rally. “Our intention for 2013 is to assemble our riders at two locations, one being

CFB Kingston and second at the AMC theatre complex in Whitby, leading both groups to Centennial Park for the rally,” DeVuono said. The rally would included an air display from CFB Trenton as well as several other demonstrations. The free event is open to everyone, whether they are motorcycle riders or not. “Our rallies welcome the non-riding public to join us,” he adds. The event raises funds through donations to charities which over the

past four years has raised over $50,000 to Wounded Warriors, the Tony Stacey Centre for Veterans Care and both the Trenton and Toronto Military Family Resource Centres. For four years Quinte West has been acting as host to thousands of riders to assemble prior to their ride along the Highway of Heroes from CFB Trenton to Toronto. Riders are also requesting to use the park to camp for a small fee. “It provides a great opportunity for the public to get involved,” he noted.

A family destroyed “… that’s when it gets tough to handle” put him to sleep right then with medications that we have on hand not the ones that we’d like to have and if we don’t do it in the next three minutes he’s going to bleed to death,” he said. It’s a job that puts him in death’s doorway where he sees trauma victims daily. Like the nine-year-old boy who was the only survivor of a bombing at his home near Aleppo. “The traumatic injury stuff is just medicine you can compartmentalize and deal with it. That little kid had third and fourth degree to his arms so you can compartmentalize that and deal with it but when you sit back and realize that his mother, his father, his brother and his sister, his aunt, his uncle, everyone’s gone and frankly in that society, in a short period of time, nobody’ll care for that kid … that’s when it gets tough to handle,” he said quietly. The fact he’s been 25 years on the job does little to help ease those times. He and “Dr. Jay” are returning to Syria this month. “Since we’ve been over there we know through the communication network at SAMS that Syrian interior intelligence has googled a number of articles related to them by name … so we are not saying where we are going back to.” While the free Syrian army continues to fight for democracy, doctors and medical professionals like Dr. Jay and Cameron continue their work. “We treat Christians, Muslims, atheists, Buddhists.

When the officer approached, the driver’s side window was open and a strong odour of marijuana was coming from the vehicle. The front passenger floor and seat area was completely covered with a green leafy substance and it appeared the driver had attempted to discard the marijuana out the passenger window but was unsuccessful. The officer seized 655.3 grams of marijuana and the driver was arrested. A 22-year-old Belleville man was charged with possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking and speeding.

integrity of medicine is no different here than the integrity of medicine in Syria. We and the Syrian doctors treat everyone equally. You have to treat the patient no matter what,” he concluded. Dr. Jay told EMC his dedication to Syrian American Medical Society (SAMS) was an easy decision to make. He spoke on the phone with EMC. “I am a Canadian born physician of Syrian background. I feel that it is my duty to help my background of origin people and their cause and what’s happening to them right now as the result of a dictator slaughtering them. “We’re providing two kinds of services, we’re providing clinical services to the injured and we’re providing education for the local field physicians over there. And we’re introducing new strategies and new medications that are making a huge difference,” he explained. Both men said they hope interviews like this through the media increase awareness of what is going on in Syria.

Hasty P’s donate to Afghanistan Memorial in tribute By Kate Everson

He had been wounded and transferred to the Royal Canadian Regiment. At his funeral the RCR conceded all the services to the Hasty P’s recognizing McLaren “was and is, from the beginning of his service, a dedicated Hasty P.” Evans said this shows what a wonderful relationship exists between a famous Regiment of the Canadian Army and a little Militia Regiment, known for years as the “plough jockeys.” “We then became famous,

at least in our little world,” Evans continued, “as the Hasty P’s, a little farm regiment that went on to win more battle honours than any other regiment during the World War II years, 31 in total.” Mayor John Williams thanked the veterans for their donation and invited them to the November 10 dedication of the memorial in Bain Park, starting at 1 p.m. “We still need to get the flag poles and lighting and the granite,” he said. “We

use trail project through Batawa and Sonoco property is gaining momentum. “The Batawa Riverfront Trail will be two kilometres long,” said Chris Angelo, director of Public Works and Environmental Services. “It will be a multi-use trail. They are seeking government funds to construct it.” The Friends of the Trail and Batawa Development Corporation are working together to establish a trail which will connect to existing Batawa highland trails and the Lower Trent Trail. The application for funding from the Great Lakes Guardian Community Fund was detailed in a recent handout at the Public Works advisory committee, and a presentation will be made at the November meeting. The Friends of the Trail is requesting funding of $24,905 for a project which is valued at $44,850 of which $11,945 is inkind contributions and donations of $8,000. The project must be first approved by the landowner, the city of Quinte West. The project includes a parking area at the south end adjacent to the river, removal of invasive species and planting native grasses and plants. “This is the first step toward realizing a Quinte West vision of a trail network along the river,” the application states. “The two new kilometres of multi-use trails connect to a network of over 50 kilometres of trails through Lower Trent and Batawa.” The Lower Trent Trail is a non-motorized trail that follows the rail bed of the former CNR property running north and south from Glen Ross to Glen Miller. The now completed 15 ki-

lometres of trail runs parallel to the Trent Severn Waterway and passes through Frankford, Batawa and Glen Miller. The Lower Trent Trail has been operated by the Friends of the Trail since 2004. The proposal states that there have already been tremendous volunteer and in-kind commitments from Batawa Lions Club, Sacred Heart School, Batawa Development Corporation, Friends of the Trail, Golder Environmental, Carleton University and Lower Trent Conservation. The city of Quinte West is listed as land owner, with Friends of the Trail as project manager and applicant. Trenval is listed as a funding partner for the master plan worth $8,000, along with Friends of the Trail and Batawa Development Corporation. Details include trail construction and materials worth $15,305, signage at $3,000, benches and bike stands at $5,000, administration and supplies at $500 and native plants and seeds at $1,100 all applied through the Great Lakes Fund. An environmental review, administration, tree planting, garbage cleanup, species inventory and design was estimated at $11,945 in-kind value through partners. The deadline for the submission of grant applications was October 12. The fund is an initiative offered by the Ministry of the Environment, to support its ongoing commitment to the protection and restoration of the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence River basin. The purpose of the fund is to provide grants to community groups to help restore their own corner of the Great Lakes.

NHLers offer tips to SDMHA house league teams By Richard Turtle

EMC Sports - Stirling The Stirling rink was buzzing again last weekend as, with little notice, local skaters shared the ice with some local hockey heroes. The National Hockey League Players Association announced earlier last week its intention to “honour its commitment to hockey fans in StirlingRawdon, Ontario, and will proudly participate in the Stirling Minor Hockey NHLPA Day Saturday, October 13.” And with only slightly more lead time, but few confirmed details, association members began planning for a day on the ice with some of the most talented players in the game today. And when the big day arrived, with clinics planned into the afternoon for all the association’s house league players, eight current NHLers arrived to handle the drills and skating exercises. Among them were local players including Los Angeles Kings’ Brad Richardson, Calgary Flames’ Derek Smith and New York Islanders’ Josh Bailey as well as Columbus Blue Jackets’ Nick Foligno, Minnesota Wild’s Curtis Foster, Pittsburgh Penguin’s Matt Cooke and Toronto Maple Leafs’ goaltender James Reimer. Stirling and District Minor Hockey Association Vice President Mike

Bonn says the day turned out to be a huge success and involved players at all levels in the local association. “Not everybody’s skating with them,” he says, “but they’re getting team pictures with the players and lots of autographs.” More than 250 house league players at all levels participated in the clinics scheduled through the morning and into the afternoon with three NHL players joining association representatives on the ice for each session. Traffic was heavy in the lobby as players prepared for upcoming ice times and parents waited with cameras to snap photographs of the visiting stars. Young players and fans had jerseys, sticks and hats for their hockey heroes to sign as well as the photographs and cards handed out to all the players as they arrived. With the NHLers between sessions and house league players preparing for the next, members of the Stirling Blues rep teams arrived on cue with their teammates to be photographed with the visiting players. And the photo and autograph opportunities continued from the parking lot and back into the building as the requests for a signature or a moment to pose for the camera continued. “It’s busy in here

again,” said Arena Manager Richard Dean before preparing to resurface the ice. “But we’re getting kind of used to that.” Stanley Cup winners Richardson and Cooke both reflected on their early days at the rink and their commitment to the area with Cooke noting, “the local rink is where it all began for so many of us and the chance to get

EMC Events - In November 2012, the Canadian Cancer Society will again offer the Living Well Beyond Cancer program to adult cancer survivors who have completed treatment or who are on maintenance chemotherapy as well as to caregivers. Living Well Beyond Cancer is based on the Chronic Disease Self-Management Program which was researched and developed at Stanford University. The program is designed to help people gain confidence in their ability to control their symptoms and live the best possible life with a long-term condition. If you are a post-treatment cancer patient or a caregiver, Living Well Beyond Cancer may be for you.

feedback received from local participants and those at other eastern Ontario locations has been overwhelmingly positive. One participant said, “The use of cancer survivors as facilitators made them believable and able to identify closely with the participants. Since the course is highly dependent on student participation and our particular problems and feelings, they [peer leaders] successfully coached us into participating without putting undue pressure on us, and made us feel as if we owned the course.” Living Well Beyond Cancer addresses techniques to deal with the psychosocial aspects of cancer, appropriate exercise for maintaining and

improving strength, communication and healthy eating. You will learn how to: manage symptoms, treatment side effects and medications; work with your healthcare team; set goals and make plans to achieve goals; solve problems and handle difficult emotions. The next program will be held at the Core Centre at 223 Pinnacle Street, Belleville from 7 to 9:30 p.m., starting Wednesday, November 7, for six weeks.  Space is limited, so please register by contacting the HastingsPrince Edward and Brighton Unit office at 613-962-0686 or by emailing your interest to <hastings@ontario.cancer. ca>.

Woody Allen’s classic To Rome with Love was on the big screen that night featuring Alec Baldwin and Penélope Cruz. “I’m here because I’m hoping to see my present girlfriend in the movie, Penélope.

EMC Entertainment Campbellford - “Movie stars” walked the red carpet at the Aron Theatre last week mobbed by the paparazzi during a very special evening marking the launch of the second annual Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) film circuit. It was a night of glitz and glamour as stars arrived in limos and fancy retro cars and strutted along the carpet on their way to watch the first of six movies that are being shown October through December 19, every second Wednesday night at 7:30 p.m. “Look there’s Brad Pitt!” exclaimed one fan as Russ Christianson, president of the Aron Theatre Co-operative appeared. “I dressed in a tux with my hair combed back [sans sunglasses] to be a slightly older Brad Pitt,” he said later laughing. He paused at the red carpet to be photographed by the “wannabe” paparazzi which included Schellè Holmes, Steve Turner and Ted Sheppard, all outfitted to look like the press with cameras in hand. “We are the yellow journalists,” said Holmes while taking a photograph of movie star Brad Pitt. “I want the nitty gritty story about all of it. I always wanted to hear the real story,” she said laughing as she made her way back to the red carpet to take pictures of the next star, American pop singer and songwriter and self-made post-modern diva Lady Gaga (Sherry Turner). They were followed by the arrival of Austin Powers whose mojo was definitely working as he sauntered up to the red carpet in front of the paparazzi. “I’m Austin Powers baby; don’t you dig the threads?” he said with a big grin. “I’m expecting to really have a great time tonight.” Meryl Streep (Joan Sheppard, a member of the TIFF committee) and Sidney Poitier (Keith Da-

Later in the week he told EMC, “I feel that the community’s response to TIFF at the Aron has been fabulous and worth all the effort to get the series up and running. Local business sponsors got behind the series with their financial support, the TIFF committee approached everything with enthusiasm and energy, and lovers of great cinema came out to share the collective experience of watching a movie together.  This is what the Aron Theatre Co-operative is all about.” Another local fan Randall Head said later, “Appreciating the great efforts by all, this has been a well thought out and promoted package which has given our community an opportunity to enjoy something out of the ordinary and appreciate the Aron even more.” Christianson told EMC later he estimates there were 140 people at the first

The laughter, quiet comments, and the collective experience of sharing the movie and the gorgeous cinematography of one of the world’s most beautiful cities, Roma, was fabulous,” he said. “The feeling at the theatre that night was that of a true film premiere— excitement, anticipation and fun.

Poetry helps restore mental health By Jack Evans

EMC News - Evan and Myles Oates made a magical discovery recently at The Gates gallery in Brighton - a faerie village. The outdoor art exhibit was created by Nichola Battilana and will be available for viewing throughout October on the grounds just west of the gallery. “The things I make are created with absolute joy,” she says on her web site. “They are a celebration of the goodness and magic that exist in the world.” Do you believe?

EMC News - Belleville For at least one person who has suffered for years, writing poetry helps—in a big way. Apart from her own testament of how poetry has been a major aid in dealing with her mental illness over the years, Karen Dack of Belleville has also been nominated by the Hastings and Prince Edward Branch, Canadian Mental Health Association, for the Transforming Lives Award for 2012 as “a poet, an advocate and a woman who has earned respect for her work within our community.” Dack can trace her problems back to her early teenage years, recalling that as a result of bullying, “my marks in Grade 7 were seven Es and tendencies of self-harm.”  This was compounded when she was 14 by sexual abuse, leading to “my first suicide attempt,” she said during an interview in Belleville City Hall Wednesday. She was there to present copies of three of her poetry books to Mayor Neil Ellis plus a framed copy of the poem she wrote for Remem-

Why storytelling helps children on a dark and stormy night EMC Lifestyles - “It was a dark and stormy night.” The storyteller’s eyes widen. His words slow. The narrative begins and no one knows how the tale will end. Good storytelling captivates us, sparks our imagination, and shapes our thoughts and attitudes. But good storytelling does not just happen. It is a skill that begins developing at a very young age. According to Alyssa McCabe, professor and researcher with University of Massachusetts Lowell, narrative skills begin in children as young as 27 months old. At this stage children tell one event stories. “Me cat.” is a toddler’s narrative about dressing as a black cat on Hallowe’en. At three and a-half years children tell two event stories. “I was a cat. I got candy.” This preschooler’s story includes two exciting events: dressing up and going trick or treating. Children’s narrative skills include more details by the time they are four, but these details typically jump around. McCabe calls this the leapfrog story stage. “I was a cat. Mom was scared. I like chocolate. He stepped on my tail.” If you are the child’s mom you will know that the story describes a Hallowe’en adventure in which another child accidentally stepped on the tail of her

daughter’s costume while trick or treating. This caused her daughter to fall. Mother automatically gasped and asked, “Are you okay?” Later that night, the daughter sorted her candy putting all the chocolate into one special pile. Soon, however, the story sequence becomes easier to follow, and another feature of storytelling emerges. Five-year-olds realize that stories convey feelings and reactions. These stories are called high point narratives. “I really like chocolate. On Hallowe’en I went to Grandpa’s house. He gave me a big chocolate bar. On my street they don’t know I like chocolate. I got candy kisses and chips. I got granola bars. Grandpa knows I like chocolate.” McCabe suggests that it’s not until children are about six years old that classic narrative skills emerge. Their stories move beyond the emotional high point. A resolution is added. “My brother likes chips, so we swapped treats. I gave him three bags of my potato chips. I got three of his chocolate bars. Now I have more chocolate!” So why do children’s abilities to tell stories matter? Research shows that children’s narrative skills at the end of Kindergarten predict reading comprehension as late as Grade 7. (Griffin, Hemphill, Camp & Wolf, 2004; Tabors, Snow, & Dickinson, 2001) Storytelling helps chil-

dren become more selfaware. Through stories children can describe themselves or the other story characters as victim, hero, or observer. Through storytelling they evaluate real or fictional situations, express emotions, and determine possible actions and resolutions. Storytelling helps children think. Adults in children’s lives can nurture children’s narrative skills in simple but important ways: • Model storytelling by sharing stories about your day, or by telling madeup stories together. • Use mealtimes to talk together. Research shows that the amount and

depth of conversation at the dinner table impacts children’s literacy development. (Beals, 2001) • Ask children genuine, open-ended questions to get them talking. (Avoid questions that can be answered with a simple yes or no. Avoid questions to which you already know the answer.) • Engage and support children’s storytelling. Comments like “Really?” or “I see.” let children know their words and ideas are interesting and you want to hear more. It was a dark and stormy night … and the six-yearold boy leaned forward in his chair to tell Grandpa what would happen next.

brance Day in recognition of the recent annual Mental Health Week. Taking a post-secondary course as a development service worker and beyond the bullying, her marks quickly shot up, qualifying her for the Velleman Foundation Award for selected first-year students in that course. But the workplace brought new pressures. After 15 years as a development service worker, she again developed anxiety, panic attacks and depression leading to renewed suicide attempts by overdoses. Psychiatric diagnosis led to the end of her career. She became involved with local Canadian Mental Health Association support groups, which led to one counsellor suggesting writing poetry. Publishing the poetry at her doctor’s suggestion later was intended, she said, “to educate and let people know they are not alone if they have mental health issues.” A portion of sales proceeds is turned back to the association, which had assisted in publishing the books, she said. She also told

about people she has met who have found special meaning in some of her poems. “My journey still continues,” she said. “In 2008 I stopped self harming and taking overdoses. Most of all, when suicidal thoughts come, I choose life.” Representative of her work is one written to acknowledge the 60th anniversary of the Belleville Theatre Guild, whose productions have been an enjoyable part of her life. Titled “A Stage Called Life,” it reads in part: “Where are our scripts to tell us who we are? To tell us what to say and how to make it through the day? No matter our part, each one is important on this stage called Earth Don’t let anyone else define your worth. The creator/director will be watching off stage.” In return for her gifts, Mayor Ellis said the framed Remembrance Day poem will be hung in the Council Chambers and gave her some gifts from the city.

Stirling Festival Theatre stage set for Scary Stories! EMC Entertainment Stirling - There will be tricks as well as treats. If you can keep your wits about you, the Stirling Festival Theatre Young Company is preparing to visit some familiar old haunts just in time for Hallowe’en. The upcoming production of Spooky Stories, taking the stage on October 26 and 27 promises to be a frightening experience, says the show’s director David Vanderlip.

“We do creepy, gory things,” he says. And it’s not just about rum runners or speakeasies or the War of 1812, although that’s all in there too, Vanderlip says, but there are also some pretty scary scenes that revolve around the local mill pond. And rumours of alligators abound. When a group of children are dared to arrive at a midnight campfire with a

particularly spooky object, a lot of strange stories can emerge, Vanderlip says. And with a cast of ten, there will be plenty of scary experiences to go around. “We have some regulars back and some new people,” he says of the young company’s cast for the final offering of a busy young company season. But with the help of a few returning company veterans, he says, the cast will be well prepared for three frightening performances. Cast members include Natalie Cummings, Rylee Bremner, Jazmin Kerr, Brody DesRosiers, Sam Orr, Riley Kay, Kyle Ellis, Rowan Vance, Taylor Russett and Cheridan ClarkRichardson who hail from the immediate area as well as Belleville, Trenton and Cloyne. And despite all the gore, there will be moments of levity, Vanderlip notes, with music, square dancing and cameo appearances by sev-

eral shadow puppets. The show opens next Friday night with two shows Saturday at 2 and 7 p.m. All tickets are $8 and are avail-

able by contacting the box office at 613-395-2100. Upcoming events before the end of the year include an Elvis Christmas show No-

vember 10 and the Christmas Panto Alice in Wonderland, running through the month of December.

Samantha Chapman saw an opportunity. And after the entries were in, the band handpicked the local group to join them onstage at their Oshawa concert, at press time (October 17) this week. To enter the contest, the students had to record their own version of two Marianas Trench songs and upload the video on the YouTube web site. Without any teacher coaching, the students arranged the music—complete with fourpart harmony—rehearsed on their own time and produced their entry, all in a week. “The group did this all on their own,” said music teacher Bruce Tonkin. “They did all the work and I’m so proud, as a teacher,

to see them carry through on the project.” And judging from the reaction during an interview with the group, they are all fans of the British Columbia pop punk band. “I was so excited, I almost passed out,” said Chapman, after hearing the group won the contest. On concert day, the stu-

dents will arrive at the General Motors Centre at 3 p.m. for a professional sound check and again, at 7 p.m. for the performance. As well as being onstage, they will get a behind-thescenes look at the show. Log on to < com/watch?v=AdSOK__ CFGo> for a look at the ENSS entry.

Art show visitors pick their favourites By Bill Freeman

EMC News - Norwood New display walls and a new “picture design approach” added to viewing pleasure at this year’s Norwood Fair art exhibition, says Rob Howat co-director of the show along with Rose Gordon. “This year’s exhibition was much enhanced by the new display which allowed pictures to have an equal viewing at or near eye level,” says Howat who thanks volunteers for building the two new display walls. The quality of the show was very high, he said, and that meant judging was a very demanding task. “Since different judges bring different perspectives each year this year was no different,” Howat noted. “Our judge sought artistic interpretation throughout rather than minute representational detail.” One of the highlights of the weekend is allowing viewers to vote for their favourite entry and favourite artist which Howat says is in keeping with the Homecraft Division’s “participatory” philosophy. “The art show encourages enthusiastic viewers to more fully take part.”

Howat himself has donated certificates for the Viewer’s Choice winners which this year went to Lauri Masters for her portrait of John Lennon followed Jessica Lunn’s entry just two votes behind. Third in voting and also two votes behind Jessica’s entry was Margaret Sharp. “In all, a very close competition with so much talent on display,” Howat said. For multiple entries Jessica was first in the voting, 22 ballots ahead of Mychaele Kelly. Both Audrey Harris-Gaunt and Evelyn VanHarkelen were three votes behind Mychaele. Co-director Rose Gordon won the Best Picture in Adult Art prize. She, Howat, Heather Carole and photographer Keith Tonks, visiting from England and scheduled to talk at the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 300 Sunday afternoon, oversaw the setup and arrangement of art entries. “They each agreed that the show had been a considerable success with entrants and visitors proving again to be very co-operative and considerate,” Howat added. “It is fun to be part [of it].”

The Good Earth:

Dan Clost EMC Lifestyles - All Hallow’s Eve, Samhain, Hallowe’en, etc. etc. is fast upon us. This is an evening, along with attendant following days, that is steeped in many traditions around the world. Depending upon the works of whichever historian or theologian we happen to be reading, we can be celebrating witches (which some have defined as “wise woman”), we can be thankful for a good

harvest or a good growing season (depending upon the time of celebration for it was not always an autumnal event), we can be fearful of meeting with a lost soul (so we might wear a costume to disguise ourselves), or we might be carving up either a turnip (Ireland and Scotland) or a pumpkin. This is a gardening column so we’re not going to get into either the validity or the purpose of this evening other than to chat a bit about some of the plants involved. Did you catch the turnip lantern reference? There are two stories that speak of carved vegetable lanterns. One is that the candlelit lantern was set on the front step to ward off roaming spirits and the other is that these lanterns were set along the paths to the churches for evening worship prior to All Saints Day. Apparently the Celts liked to use turnips; the Saxon types favoured beets. Gentle

recipe. We do not partake of manglewurzel pie and we don’t munch on manglewurzel seeds. If we wanted to look at some of the sinister aspects of Hallowe’en horticulture, plants that induce trances, impart the ability to fly, and protect the individual from Satan, there is a long list. I will not produce them here because, and hard as this is to believe, some young folks have been known to read this type of column and actually ingest some part of the plant to create the sensations for themselves. So let’s stick to the fun parts. The witches broom can be made of just about anything lying about that can be attached to the end of a stick. Willow (Salix), Weeping Birch (Betula pendula) broom (genista), corn (maize) and of course broomcorn (sorghum) are just some of the materials. Mind you, the brooms with Ash (Fraxinus) handles or shafts are the stur-

that is not yet decided. Watching political campaigns depresses me. It’s not because I think all politicians are crooks; many, I believe, are quite principled. It’s because too often, the way we choose our leaders has no correlation to their

actual ability to lead. For instance, reporters talk up the power of the “beer test”: vote for the guy you would most like to have a beer with. Or the “barbeque test”: Vote for the person you would most like to have over for a barbeque. I see several problems with that, chief among them being that the chances of any one of us having a politician over for a barbecue is so infinitesimal that to choose a leader based on that seems rather absurd. The second is that whether or not you enjoy conversing with someone over burgers and brewskies has very little to do with whether or not that person will make good decisions about fiscal policy, foreign policy, or social policy.

diest and prevent a witch from drowning. It is worthy to note that the Firebolt used by Harry Potter had a handle crafted from the ash tree. Bobbing for apples was a game the Victorians introduced although it wonders me how that came about. Apples were serious stuff. A maiden sleeping with an apple under her pillow would dream of a future husband and a peeling tossed over a shoulder took the shape of the first initial of his name. There’s also a story about visiting the cabbage patch on Hallow’s Eve to determine the characteristics of a future spouse. And I thought Rob and Laura Petrie’s adventure with Mr. Cabbage, Esmeralda the Queen Tomato, two broccoli and a radish was weird, (For you younger Gentle Readers, that’s a reference to the exceptionally funny Dick Van Dyke Show.) For most of us,

Hallowe’en is a fun night for the wee ones and a good reason for a party for us older folks. Have fun and be safe. For the Ovaltine crowd, later in the evening enjoy some pumpkin pie or roasted seeds. Beware the manglewurzel! Roasted pumpkin seeds: Rinse the seeds somewhat, don’t worry that some of the slimy stuff is still attached. Fill a saucepan with a 1:2 ratio of seeds to water, e.g. 1 cup of seeds to 2 cups of water. Let it simmer for 10-15 minutes and you’ll see the slimy stuff start to come off. Make jokes with the kids about slimy stuff, they’ll love it. Strain, pat dry. Some folks will toss the seeds with melted butter; others will just use a greased baking pan. Pop them into a preheated oven at 350 deg F. Should take about a half hour or until seeds are golden brown.   Not rocket science.

Reader, you should know by now my feeling toward this noxious weed of the soil.   However, in my research for this column, I did come across an absolutely marvellous German name for it: mangelwurzel. If my mom had said, “Danny, have a bit of this mangelwurzel; it’s good for you and it has such a pretty colour.” I would not have been fooled. Alas, she did not use those words; it was more along the lines of, “You can eat them now or you can eat them for breakfast, your choice.” We should gratefully acknowledge the Providence that caused pumpkins to be growing in our part of the world. They are so much easier to carve and, to put to final rest the discussion about beets, when all is said and done we nosh on pumpkin pie. Even the seeds provide a nice treat.

people at those barbeques that I would want to run the country. It’s two totally different things. Yet somehow they have become conflated in our minds because we see politics too much like a popularity contest: we’re voting for the person we like the best, not the person who would actually do the best job. It’s like politics is one big homecoming, where the school votes for the most popular kids. But what happens to those popular kids? Few of them go on to major successes. On the contrary, it’s the geeks and nerds who often end up running the world. That’s why I think likeability and the “cool factor” are hugely overrated. Nevertheless, modern political campaigns seem to revolve solely around likeability rather than substance. What, for example, is Justin Trudeau’s claim to fame other than his hair and his last name? Or take Barack Obama, who jets off to chat with the ladies on The View rather than handling a foreign policy crisis when an ambassador is killed. Or even Paul Ryan, the wonder boy Republican vice presidential candidate who was recently photographed, muscles bulging, doing his P90X workout. I think they’re going for the women’s vote. I know lots of people with great hair, who can play the sax, who have six pack abs, who define cool. Very few of them would make great world leaders. It’s not that cool means you can’t lead; it’s just that it doesn’t mean you can, either. It’s quite irrelevant.

Sheila Wray Gregoire Lest we blame politicians for this, though, let’s remember that politicians wouldn’t go on David Letterman unless it garnered votes. They wouldn’t release pictures designed to make women drool unless they changed people’s minds. It’s only because we care about this stuff that politicians do it. If we only cared about policy, then politicians would talk about policy. But because a large number of voters don’t think that hard about policy, all this other irrelevant fluff starts to matter. Please, can I put in a plea to abandon the beer test, and the barbeque test, and the beefcake test? Instead, let’s use the “Is this person going to help the country?” test. Figure out what direction you want the country to go in—do you want more government, or less government? Do you want more spending, or less spending? Then vote for who agrees with you and who also has the kind of personality and experience to get things done. It sounds boring. But it’s so boring it just may work.


Nashville is considered “Music City USA” found a particular genre of music and sound that appealed to me. One particular bar that was mentioned in the TV show was the “Bluebird Café,” where songwriters perform in an intimate “in the round” setting, and this turned out to be my favourite listening place of all.

This couch and “Women in Country” room, backstage at the Grand Ole Opry, appeared in the first episode of TV’s “Nashville”.

“It’s 17 steps to the honky-tonk— and 34 steps back!” Several years ago, the Grand Ole Opry was held in downtown Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium (19431974), so I had to visit this national historic site, too. This awesome building, which was originally

of the evening, however, had to be the performance by Jason Aldean, for this caused a lot of shrieking and loud applause from the large crowd. I also got to go backstage, where I visited the rooms where such past celebrated Grand Ole Opry members as Patsy Cline, Johnny Cash, Minnie Pearl, and Hank Williams once hung out. I also saw photos of many of today’s stars lining the backstage walls, including Reba McIntyre, Keith Urban, and Garth Brooks, and various quotations were posted there, too, including Taylor Swift’s comment from September 1, 2006: “Oh my God, I’m on the Opry!”

EMC Lifestyles - I was watching the first episode of the new television show, “Nashville”, the other night, for I’d just returned from that particular tourist destination, and I wanted to see how this show might relate to my experience there. I wasn’t surprised that the country music scene played an integral part in the opening episode, for it’s probably the first thing that comes to mind when one thinks of a visit to Nashville, and I recognized many of the specific locations used in the show, for I had the good fortune to check them out for myself while there. The show opened at the Grand Ole Opry, and I, of course, just had to visit this very popular attraction while in Nashville. The bonus, for me, was that I was attending on the very night of the Opry’s 87th birthday party, so many of the Opry’s long-time members were present, including 91-yearold Little Jimmy Dickens, who’s still going strong. He’s the oldest active member of the Opry, and he continues to give an energetic performance and tell a comical yarn. The main highlight

Tribute To Elvis Festival scores 91 per cent in customer service

EMC Entertainment Tweed - Tweed Music Festivals Inc. (TMF) is elated and proud to announce the

results of a customer service assessment conducted by Ontario Highlands Tourism Organization under the

OHvation Customer Service Designation Program during our August 2012 non-profit Tweed Tribute To

Elvis Festival at the Tweed Fairgrounds. Our volunteer staff earned a score of 91 out of 100. Our second-year

event had perfect scores in the “Environment” and “Staff Attitudes & Presentation” segments. Specific observations supporting our evaluators’ ratings included: “We loved the community spirit that was evident throughout town. It was very fun to see how each business participated in the Elvis/Aloha spirit! The event appeared to be very well organized and the event staff were all very friendly and helpful.”

“It’s a credit to Carolynne and Bonnie they were able to motivate their recruits in such a fashion and to such a degree. That support was key to the success of the festival earning such an impressive rating in these critical areas.”

We loved the whole feel of this event and the way the community all got into it. People were very friendly both at the main event site and in town. From a visitor’s standpoint, we were welcomed in a very friendly way and the event appeared well organized. It was easy to find the main site. The quality of the performers was surprisingly good and the different mix of stage events provided appeal to lots of different tastes. Individual segment scores leading to the overall total

were; Environment (Interior and Exterior) 100 per cent, Service Delivery Process 84 per cent, Regional Tourism Service/Product Knowledge 85 per cent, and Staff Attitudes and Presentation 100 per cent. Particularly noteworthy is the fact that the Tweed Tribute To Elvis Festival is entirely volunteer driven, managed and staffed. The festival’s volunteer recruitment and management team of Carolynne Campbell and Bonnie Jussila recruited 94 community members who contributed over 950 person-hours of labour to the setup, conduct and wrap-up activities required by our three-day event. Though during their recruitment drive Carolynne and Bonnie sought only one three-hour shift from each prospective volunteer, many came Friday and stayed until Sunday. Senior VP Jim Keniston said, “It’s a credit to Carolynne and Bonnie they were able to motivate their recruits in such a fashion and to such a degree. That support was key to the success of the festival earning such an impressive rating in these critical areas.” He goes on to point out, “To most of our guests our volunteers are the face of the festival. Folks come for the entertainment, but if we don’t meet their service expectations before, between and after the shows we won’t convince them to return. Visitor feedback forms submitted by our guests indicate 95 per cent intend to come back next year. Several of our guests used these forms to document their appreciation of the level of service and care received from our staff. Obviously our volunteers made us look good!”

British car club greeted by wet roads By Richard Turtle

EMC News - StirlingRawdon - The weather felt a bit English as a British car club made its way through the county last Sunday with about two dozen drivers and their passengers traveling the rain soaked roads. And while conditions weren’t ideal, for many it represented another opportunity to enjoy the countryside in some prized vehicles, some decades old and in pristine condition. “It’s been good actually,” says Boot’n Bonnet Car Club President Jamie Berry, who was joined by several other automobile enthusiasts with a taste for Daimlers and Triumphs and Jaguars and MGs and Land Rovers. Among the car owners taking part in the fall tour, he says, are members of the Kingston and Belleville chapters of the club with new members welcome. Berry, a Rednersville resident and a lifelong lover of classic cars, says a lot of the fun is in the driving and the camaraderie regardless of the weather. And, he agreed, it didn’t seem entirely inappropriate for the many participants. The tours, he says, help draw attention to the club currently made up of about 250 members primarily from southeastern Ontario who meet in Kingston and Belleville. “We have about 50

people and 25 cars,” says Berry, noting there were cancellations because of the weather but there was a healthy contingent for the tour that stretched north to Tweed ending later in the day in Belleville with a trip to Donini Chocolate before lunch. But before heading south, the parade of British steel, that also included a 50year old E Type and a new Aston Martin, stopped at the Apple Store for a brief rest. For some it would eventually amount to a day’s drive approaching 500 kilometres. And some of the vehicles had seen a lot of years.

But Paul Albanese of Corbyville had no reservations about taking a spin in his 1962 Austin Mini.

“I take it wherever I can,” he says of the tiny import with right-hand drive. And, he adds, recent trips have

provide plenty of variety for experienced and “newbie” bakers. “These recipes are easy to follow, anyone can do it,” she told EMC. She started creating the recipes last winter after a challenge by her fitness instructor Cait Lynch of Customfit to give up wheat and if possible, all grains.” She suggested Preston read the book “Wheat Belly” by William Davis. “I did take wheat out of my diet and I did feel better but I still had some problems, so when I took all the grains out I noticed a huge improvement. It took a couple of months to notice the difference,” she explained. “I have had a history of digestive problems and thought giving up all grains might help.” Her next challenge was convincing her husband of 35 years, “that this would be beneficial for his health.” He loved breads, cakes, cookies, muffins and pie, “a true carboholic,” she said, noting her husband’s blood pressure and cholesterol and weight were all “creeping up”. “It was then that I created the no bran bran muffins,” she explained. Not only were they much like the original, “my husband said they were even better.” She knew then that replacing other favourite foods with no-grain baking was the key to a healthier lifestyle. “When I started giving out samples the feedback was so

Preston’s cookbook sells for $15 and is available in many places including Bulk Plus in Campbellford, where she has worked for the past 14 years.

EMC Entertainment - Belleville - The annual Ontario District Fall Convention of the Barbershop Harmony Society last weekend went off if not with a bang, certainly a full-throated harmonious chord. This was the second consecutive year the provincial group has used Belleville’s Maranatha Church for the event and it seems destined to be used again next year. With eight choruses from across Ontario competing plus 20 quartets, the event drew around 720 registra-

tions from across Ontario, plus professional society judges from as far away as Texas and Seattle. In a close contest to the point of being tied, one of the youngest ever entries to attain such a status, Shoptimus Prime, was selected to represent Ontario at the international competition next summer. This foursome formed part of the Ontario Youth A Cappella group (under 30) which performed as guests of the local Quinte chapter in 2011 and wowed the large audience then with their precocious performance.

I gave recipes to friends and family to taste them for me,” said Preston. Her original target group, people with celiac disease soon grew to include people wanting to lower carbohydrates or increase fibre in their foods. “I soon realized these recipes were now targeting a large group of people who are pre-diabetic, diabetic, or who have heart disease,” she said.

Their members are associated with various chapters across Canada and Ontario, including Calgary Foothills, Ottawa, Toronto, Guelph and Grimsby. Runnerup was a Torontobased quartet, Vocal Zone and third was a colourfully red-bedecked Border Patrol, who won the seniors quartet category. Another winner was an ensemble called 3 New Guys,  who also span several chapters across Ontario and New York State, who won the “novice” category. The weekend also saw intense competition between the choruses, with the large and popular  Toronto-based Northern Lights stealing the stage to again represent Ontario at the International Competition.  That will be held in Toronto next summer, also marking the 75th anniversary of the Barbershop Harmony Society (originally the Society for the Preservation and Encouragement of Barber Shop Quartet Singing in America). The society now has chapters in several European countries as well as Australia, New Zealand and South Africa and across Canada. Colourful uniforms for both choruses and quartets were part of the show as hundreds of people milled around Maranatha Church. There were also spontaneous outbursts of four-part harmony in the church and in hotel corridors over the weekend. Co-hosts for the convention were the Oshawa and A Cappella Quinte Chapters. The local chapter meets Tuesdays at 7 p.m. in the back hall of Calvary Temple. Prospective new members are welcome to drop in and share a chord.

Roots music plays big part in Beer Fest

EMC News - Stirling When Chris Luedecke arrived from his home on the east coast to perform at the Hastings County Beer Festival, he brought along a bandmate who could show him around town. The Juno award-winning musician, who performs as

Old Man Luedecke, recently released his new CD, Tender is the Night, and was joined onstage for Saturday’s Farmtown Park gig by former Stirling resident and east coast transplant Joel E. Hunt. Hunt, who has fiddled and plucked his way into the east coast music scene, doesn’t play on the new disc but is ac-

knowledged in the liner notes and has performed numerous times with Luedecke as well as other notable east coast musicians. And it was through his father Bob, a member of the Farmtown Park board of directors, that Hunt learned he would be travelling from his home in Newfoundland to play at the recently renamed

agricultural museum. “It’s always nice to come back,” he says, noting playing with Luedecke and having the opportunity to return and perform here are a bonus. And he admits his familiarity with the area allowed him to take one of the featured performers on a guided tour of the village before the performances, as brief as that might have been. “It took about four minutes,” Luedecke says with a laugh. “But it’s great to be here. Who doesn’t like a beer festival.” And when the banjo-playing poet took the main stage in Heritage Village, the beer continued to flow and the people started to listen. And then they danced. Also featured during the festival was Winnipeg singer/songwriter Del Barber who, on the heels of a Juno nomination, offered a pair of dynamic sets, one alongside guest musicians Aaron Comeau, Graham Nicholas and Raven Shields, who performed earlier as a trio. Barber also performed from his new CD, Headwaters, that was also recently released. Equal to the storytelling talents of Luedecke, Barber is a gifted guitar player and wordsmith with a soft spot for John Prine and his bittersweet prose. On a small stage in the Tillage Building, where other food and drink vendors were located, musical performances continued. Along with the featured acts which included members of Dear Sister and folk singer Grady Kelneck, were local musicians Luke and Janet Mercier, joined by Tim Hadley on bass.

Growing Jobs for 25 Years ...and Counting!

Kim and Paul Jensen, Jensen Precision Machining – “Trenval immediately saw the potential in our business. They were very supportive and straight up. The whole loan application and approvals process were hassle free. We really appreciate Trenval’s support in giving us the opportunity to grow our business and create jobs”. Dick and Arlene Wolters, The Machining Center – “We can’t begin to say enough about the service and support that Trenval gave to us, especially in the early years.”

Pat Luffman, The Village Tax – “Trenval helped me to meet my goals for sure. They recognized that each business and each individual are unique and circumstances differ, as no two situations are exactly the same, there are always variables that require special attention.”

September 1987 The late Jack Gibbons signs the agreement that established Trenval. Wilf Wilkinson and Karen Theriault look on.

Frank Meiboom, M&R Auto – “Trenval is an organization that can get you started or through a rough time when others won’t. They helped me with financing and have advised me about other resources when they were available.”

September 2012 The Trenval Team, Michelle Ryder, Bruce Davis, Harry Todd, Amber Darling

Steve Bassett and Barry Meinzinger, Multi-flow Fluid Power – “I found the people at Trenval of great value and understanding mostly because they are local people working in a local environment. They offered resources above and beyond the financial assistance needed during our peak growth time”.

Billie-Jo Easterbrook, Occasions by the Bay – “Trenval knows the local economic climate; they steer you towards success. The counsellors know how to motivate and keep you on track.”
