EMC News - Campbellford - Celebrating business excellence in a sort of “who’s who” of Trent Hills, the 2013 Celebration of Business Excellence recognized the entrepreneurial spirit that is alive and well here. “We know how hard all of us work and the dedication required to be an entrepreneur … Tonight we’re celebrating everyone’s success together,” said Schellé Holmes, president of the Trent Hills and District Chamber of Commerce, which hosted the 2013 event. The highlight of the evening was presentation of the President’s Award by Holmes. “This year we have someone who has done a great deal for the Trent Hills area,” she said, offering up hints about who this year’s recipient would be. “Business owners that retire and stay in the area, they become advocates for business and always considering a new project initiative or challenge that will affect the business community in a positive way,” she added. Camille Edwards is this year’s award winner. Holmes provided a lengthy list of Camille Edwards, right, whose business background in Trent Hills was as owner/operator of the Hi-Lo Lodge in Hastings, receives the President’s Award from Schellé committees that Edwards is involved Holmes, president of the Trent Hills and District Chamber of Commerce.

“People are getting the message”

By Bill Freeman

EMC News - Havelock - There was lots of pitching in last week in Havelock-Belmont-Methuen. The annual Pitch-In week campaign was another success even though rainy weather Saturday morning reduced numbers for the community cleanup effort, but plenty of people took time out during the week to tidy things up in the township. And what they are finding is that things are neater than they have been in the past, says Pitch-In organizer Brian Grattan. “People are getting the message that [littering] is an issue across Ontario and not just in Havelock-BelmontMethuen,” Grattan, the township’s deputy-clerk and economic development officer, told Trent Hills Regional News. “It’s nice that the school takes an active part because that’s the education piece,” he said. “They’re the future of our community, so it’s nice they take the involvement that they do.” Tim Hortons in Havelock was a key sponsor provid-

ing T-shirts to every student at Havelock Belmont Public School and to those who joined in Saturday’s community blitz. They also provided refreshments and Tim Bits to fuel the early morning crowd. Owner-operator Chris Smith and sons Oliver and Chris participated in the cleanup as well. “It’s great to have Tims on board,” said Grattan. “They definitely go above and beyond what they need to do; it’s great to see Chris’s community pride.” Grattan said he hadn’t heard of any notable hot spots this year but is certain “they’re still out there. “There are a few spots that we hear about from residents. I think those residents keep an eye on it and keep it clean. They try to deter people from [littering],” he said. “If you have an isolated area it can be easy to dump stuff.” Grattan says people who find tires or bigger things should phone the municipal office so the township can make arrangements to have those items removed.

Jim Parcels “caught off guard� by award quick,� he said. “This is a great town to grow up in and you can’t ask for a better place to get a good start. The book is just a small facet of what I’ve done over the years to try to leave an impression on people before they get into the game and understand the realities. “It’s not all about making the NHL, it’s about making friendships.� Many of Parcels’ Norwood school friends have used sports as a foundation for the things they do as adults and they return the favour by coaching and volunteering. “What goes around comes around and it all means something in the end, you become good citizens and good providers for your families coming through this system.� Selling the Dream is an eye-opening look at what some families put themselves through pursuing a mostly unattainable dream and how young hockey players have become commoditized by an industry that encourages huge outlays of money chasing junior, professional and collegiate scholarship success which rarely happens. It struck a chord. When you visit the Chapters sports section “95 per cent of the books are about profession athletes, coaches or personalities,� Parcels says. “Ours is about minor hockey which most people can relate to. Not everyone can relate to the NHL or NFL. “What Selling the Dream does is relate to the masses, not just for hockey players and parents, but for all sports and disciplines whether it’s dance, ballet or golf. That’s what we believe sets this book apart from others right now, [it’s] a book about reality.�

Staff will investigate iPad use for council By Bill Freeman

EMC News - Norwood - Township council could be heading toward an electronic agenda like other municipalities in the county. Staff will put together a report on the use of personal information devices like iPads and tablets councillors could use in lieu of the paper-filled agendas they currently bring with them to meetings. Peterborough County and Havelock-Belmont-Methuen are two examples of councils that use electronic agendas with laptops supplied for meetings. The discussion was prompted by a question from Councillor Rick Kloosterman who wondered if there was any reason why councillors could not have their own Township of Asphodel-Norwood email addresses rather than having to rely on personal email addresses for municipal business. “It’s becoming quite annoying; my email is full,� Kloosterman said. “Is there a reason why we have to use our personal email address?� Kloosterman said that correspondence related to municipal business would go directly to councillors’ township email addresses. “Every other council has business cards with that information on it,� he said. “We should get away from this paper and go electronic.�

Acting clerk Becky Bonisteel said municipal staff did not want to go out and purchase a program and have a new CAO arrive and say they should have another program. “We haven’t found a program that other municipalities are all happy with,� Bonisteel explained. Kloosterman demurred at suggesting the municipality purchase laptops for all councillors but was strongly in favour of separate email addresses that would be used for “all correspondence from the township.� New CAO Joe van Koeverden said that in his experience councillors who use iPads or tablets are pleased with the results. “I find them quite excellent. When you bring them to meetings all the material is on the iPads,� van Koeverden said. “iPads seem to be a simpler and cheaper route,� he said. “[An iPad] is a ‘simple tool’ and easy to carry around; it does exactly what you need it to do.� Mayor Doug Pearcy said that a councillor who sits next to him on County Council uses an iPad. “There are lots of examples out there of what’s going on and the county uses it [electronic agendas and reports etc.]. An iPad would be the way to go. It’s something to look into.� Kloosterman suggested that a tablet might be a cheaper solution than an iPad.

Trent Hills woman arrested for stolen licence plate

EMC News - Campbellford - A member of the Peterborough Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) detachment was returning to his home detachment after a detail in Northumberland when he observed a maroon Dodge Caravan at the intersection of Bridge and Canrobert Streets. On Tuesday, April 23, at approximately 11:46 a.m. a vehicle in downtown Campbellford was found to have a stolen licence plate attached to it. The vehicle had a temporary validation permit attached to the plate. The officer stopped the vehicle and conducted an investigation into the status of the driver, vehicle and licence plates as the rear plate was different from the front plate. The officer determined that the rear plate was stolen

and the front plate was reported as lost by their respective owners. Jennifer Rossi, 36, from Seymour Township in Trent Hills has been charged with the following offences: possession of property obtained by crime under $5,000 under the Criminal Code; driving a motor vehicle with no licence, using a plate not authorized for motor vehicle and failing to ensure a child is properly secured under the Highway Traffic Act; causing a motor vehicle to be operated without insurance under the Compulsory Automobile Insurance Act. The accused was released on an appearance notice for June 5 to appear in the Ontario Court of Justice to speak to the charges.


EMC News - Norwood - “The biggest thing about sports in this town is that it leads you to bigger and better things,� says Jim Parcels, the 2013 recipient of the Norwood District Minor Sports Dale Ryan Memorial Award. Parcels was “caught off guard� by the award and is particularly honoured to receive it because Ryan was the person who gave him his first sportsrelated job as a young teen, timekeeper for minor sports at the Brethen Coliseum. “Dale was one of the reasons I got the start,� said Parcels, senior client manager for MRX, a Hamilton-based digital media sports solutions company that has the Canadian Football League, Canadian Hockey League, the Vanier Cup and Toronto Rock as clients. The Durham College sports administration graduate interned with the Canadian Soccer League before taking a job as trainer with the Peterborough Petes. He’s also been marketing director for the Ontario Minor Hockey Association and Guelph Storm and manager of hockey operations for the City of Vaughn. The minor hockey coach and lifelong New York Islanders fan is also the co-author of the best-selling book Selling the Dream with Ken Campbell which shines a fascinating and sometimes uncomfortable light on the realities of making it to the major junior, collegiate and professional hockey ranks. And it all started in Norwood where Parcels was raised and went to school and developed his passion for sports. “It’s amazing how 30 years goes by

scription of a person who has what he calls “left wing environmental bias,� which he contrasts with “common sense.� Turbines are undoubtedly expensive. Perhaps not as expensive as nuclear energy, but expensive. Some say they also damage the health of nearby residents. A 2010 report by Ontario’s Chief Medical Officer of Health, called The Potential Health Impact of Wind Turbines, concludes that while people living near turbines may experience dizziness, nausea, and sleep disturbance, “the scientific evidence available to date does not demonstrate a direct causal link between wind turbine noise and adverse health effects.� Other studies refute this claim. The number of conflicting studies out there makes the issue confusing to say the least. Read material by the proponents of wind power and—hey, presto—no health concerns.

purportedly “crumbling� offshore wind turbines. He says, “the Danes have the most expensive electricity costs in Europe.� The offshore wind turbines indeed have foundation problems. Growing pains of a new industry? Unsolvable problems endemic to offshore turbines? The answer depends upon what you read and how you imagine we plan for long-term energy. Read a report by the Washington-based Institute for Energy Research, for example. It absolutely damns the Danish turbine initiative. The institute promotes non-governmental energy sources controlled by market forces. That includes, for example, the Keystone XL pipeline. Canadian oil, as our federal government boasts, is run by private interests, unlike the mixed system in Denmark that returns much of their huge oil profits to the people; the institute likes this arrangement. At the other end of the spectrum, there are credible reports refuting the Danish critics. Taking various conditions into account, [they] say these reports claim

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

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

Dear Editor, I’ve been receiving regular nasty grams from the Harper Government attacking Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau, which I assume are meant to inflame the Conservative base. However, their approach seems to be scattershot in that it seems to be going to Canadians of every political stripe. I even heard from a Liberal friend living in Paris, France, that he’s been receiving them too. The fact they are using my tax dollars to insult my intelligence is getting really annoying. (But then again spending $55 million in the first quarter of this year advertising a program that ended more than two years ago seems like nothing short of insanity too, but that’s just me.)This government went to great pains to express their ire with Mr. Trudeau for stating that it’s appropriate to find the root cause of terrorist incidents in order to prevent them

from happening in the first place. What pray tell is wrong with that and why if you deem it to be such a bad idea, has our government invested $10 million to do just that. We used to be a country of co-operation and compromise, but under the current government we are becoming a country of fear mongering and acrimony because of the dissemination of half-truths and outright lies. The Harper government has spent a good part of its mandate pitting Canadian against Canadian, religion against religion, province against province, employed against unemployed, and using our tax dollars to do it. That’s wrong on so many levels it’s breathtaking. I’m not only angry because they are slandering a man I believe will be a great leader, but because they are doing it at the

expense of entire segments of the Canadian mosaic, be they teachers, Muslims or the current enemy du jour causing many to pay a hefty price for the actions of a few. I want my tax dollars spent on worthwhile projects that bring us together not push us apart. The Harper government can pass all the laws they want to put an end to bullying, but the best way to prevent it is by example. The only example the Harper Government has set recently is that of professional bully. It’s time to decide once and for all what kind of country we want to be versus the kind of country we are becoming. Our government has it in their power to change that. I have little hope that they will.

Attack ads; money not well spent


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

We all have to deal with low water levels

Dear Editor, As usual, I read with  interest the issues recorded in last week’s EMC, following the April 18 meeting of the Crowe Valley Conservation Authority. Mr. Pidduck’s remark indicating that his goal is to keep the “Crowe� running as smoothly and efficiently as possible is most reassuring to me. I happen to reside immediately below the controversial Belmont Dam, therefore share his vested interest in the flow of the entire Crowe River system. It is my understanding that the purpose of a “control� dam is to help maintain the lake levels and flow through the entire system, from Paudash Lake to the

Trent, just north of Campbellford. It would appear, however, that some of the good folk on Belmont Lake don’t share this opinion and continually complain about low water levels, and that “seepage� still takes place in the dam, and that it should be sealed. We all experience low water conditions at times, however, we also live on one of the cleanest water systems in the province of Ontario. I hope we can all continue to share and maintain the entire system as such for many years to come. Respectfully, George B. Warr, Havelock

“If it’s a big enough job we’ll send our guys out to clean it up. We definitely don’t want to turn our back on any of those problems because if you have a little bit it will attract more.� Grattan says that while Pitch-In Week shines a spotlight on local battles against littering it really should be a “yearlong mindset� and he feels strong-

ly that township residents embrace that philosophy. “We have residents who walk the roads every day and do an active part in keeping their areas cleaned up.� There were people who came into the municipal office earlier in the week asking for bags and gloves because they couldn’t participate in Saturday’s event.

Chemical fantasies and grim realities

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

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


Cuts to physiotherapy funding

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

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

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

Firefighters help place sandbags in flood prone areas By Sue Dickens

EMC News - Trent Hills - Firefighters in Trent Hills were busy helping place sandbags in flood prone areas in response to flood warnings and watches issued for the area last week. Green Acres east of Campbellford is one of those areas where flooding has occurred in the past and where firefighters were helping with the placement of sandbags last Friday evening. Trent Hills Fire Chief Tim Blake told Trent Hills Regional News that Northumberland Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mutual Aid system was activated last week and firefighters from Baltimore, Cobourg, Harwood, Brighton, Cramahe Township, Warkworth and Alnwick/Haldimand Township helped Campbellford and Trent Hills where people were busy sandbagging homes where problems have occurred in the past. Firefighters from all three stations in Trent Hills were involved. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We sandbagged the most prone ones in Green Acres,â&#x20AC;? said Blake, â&#x20AC;&#x153;there are about eight houses there that are really prone to flooding.â&#x20AC;? As of press time Monday the situation was still being monitored and the latest news from the municipality was that it had been advised the flood watch would remain in effect for the Trent River from Rice Lake to the Bay of Quinte. Residents living in low lying, floodplain areas on the Trent River from Hastings to Trenton  are being told to anticipate water flows and levels to remain close to the current levels with the possibility of minor fluctuations for at least two weeks. The Municipality of Trent Hills is asking residents to leave sandbags in place during this twoweek period as the water works its way through the Trent-Severn Waterway system. As well public works crews for the Municipality of Trent Hills were joined by others from Northumberland County filling sandbags last week.

With water levels expected to rise last weekend to the levels experienced in 2008, a flood warning was issued by the Otonabee Region Conservation Authority and a flood watch was issued by both Lower Trent and Crowe Valley Conservation Authorities. Public works staff from throughout Northumberland County continued to monitor floodprone areas while sandbags were distributed to strategic locations impacted in the 2008 flood in order to enable residents in the flood prone areas to protect their property. In 2008 the areas of concerns included along the Trent River south of the village of Hastings, between Hastings and the hamlet of Trent River, and in Percy Boom, Bradley Bay and Green Acres. As of Monday, Fire Chief Blake said Trent River did not appear to be threatened. Most residents who live in these areas are aware of the flooding that occurs each year, stated a press release from the municipality, making it clear at the same time that residents are responsible for making their own arrangements. Those who live in flood susceptible areas were being advised to take precautions to protect life and property. In advance of the floodwaters arriving, residents were also advised that they should have sufficient and appropriate emergency supplies at the ready, personal arrangements for alternative accommodations should be made, personal property should be moved to higher ground, and sump pumps checked to ensure that they are working.  Owners are responsible for any equipment required to protect their property (generators, pumps, etc.), stated the press release. Arrangements to speak with Trent Hills Mayor Hector Macmillan prior to press time on Monday for an update were unsuccessful.

Hospital program providing free program for chronic disease patients By Sue Dickens

EMC News - Campbellford - A chronic disease management program with patient participation is under way at Campbellford Memorial Hospital to help decrease readmissions by helping manage the disease. Kerry Shudall, discharge planner, made a presentation to the CMH board recently about the program and the role education plays in a more positive quality of life. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease [COPD] is on the rise in Canada,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is estimated that 750,000 Canadians have COPD â&#x20AC;Ś which is the umbrella term for diseases such as chronic bronchitis and emphysema.â&#x20AC;? A large number of chronic disease patients are admitted to every hospital, every day in particular those with COPD and congestive heart failure (CHF). â&#x20AC;&#x153;Research indicates that with education and healthy life choices the disease process can be slowed down,â&#x20AC;? said Shudall. Both COPD and CHF are chronic diseases which means

they are incurable. The program at CMH which involved a multi-disciplinary team was set up not only to help decrease readmissions but â&#x20AC;&#x153;to ensure we enhanced the patient journey through their disease process.â&#x20AC;? According to the Heart and Stroke Foundation there are 330,000 with CHF and â&#x20AC;&#x153;probably 500,000 who are unaware they have this disease,â&#x20AC;? said Shudall. The Integrated Chronic Disease Management Program (ICDMP) at CMH was set up so COPD and CHF patients were separated resulting in the delivery of two different programs, aimed at each disease. Ten people were invited to participate in each program which was conducted at the Restorative Care area in the hospital. Referrals were also permitted from a family doctor or caregiver. The program lasted seven weeks with 90-minute weekly sessions providing information on everything from understanding the disease to what can be used to help such as puffers, to dietary considerations, recreational therapy for relaxation, to physiotherapy such as breathing exercises. Questionnaires are completed at the beginning and the end of the program to demonstrate that participants have shown an improvement. There was no charge for the sessions. The program has been held three times to date. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Uptake so far has been fair,â&#x20AC;? said Shudall, who noted that the hospital is now considering reaching out to community partners for participants. Feedback from one 94-year-old patient indicated the program helped. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I did know quite a bit before the program but the program helped greatly. It reinforced what I knew plus much more information. The program was both interesting and informative,â&#x20AC;? she wrote in her comments. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I may say I am almost back to normal and feel well, especially the fact that I am 94 and I think I am lucky also to have had such good care as a patient.

Volunteers freshen up Hastings By Bill Freeman

EMC News - Hastings - Hastings freshened itself up a little bit last week. Local residents and groups, including students from Hastings Public School, took to the streets and ditches, alleyways and green spaces during the annual Earth Week cleanup. The Municipality of Trent Hills provided garbage bags and gloves for those who participated in the April 25 cleanup morning sponsored by the Hastings Revitalization Association but all week long residents did their bit to tidy up the village. The Thursday cleanup hosted by the HRA attracted a small turnout, continuing a trend that has developed over the past few years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what it is,â&#x20AC;? HRA chair Camille Edwards told the Trent Hills Regional News. Edwards praised the mass participation of students from Hastings Public School who braved wet weather Wednesday to do their part. Volunteers from the Ontario Early Years Centre also cleaned up around the Civic Centre. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Maybe one of those school kids will grow up and become civic minded and take it over when they get older,â&#x20AC;? she said. Although disappointed by the numbers, Edwards says the village is tidier than it has been in the past Tanya Nestoruk volunteered her time with the Ontario Early Years Centre in Hastings during an Earth Week cleanup and that some residents clean up on a regular basis around the Civic Centre. Photo: Bill Freeman and not just during Earth Week.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a little tidier and people are being more aware of things,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s getting better; weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not ďŹ nding all the stuff like tires that we used to.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is much cleaner here in comparison to other years,â&#x20AC;? Front Streewt East resident Skye Morrison agreed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s way less stuff on the road and even in the raceway,â&#x20AC;? Morrison said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The school is very active and the kids are enthusiastic,â&#x20AC;? she added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In some ways there are just too many things going on,â&#x20AC;? Morrison said trying to pinpoint exactly why the turnout for the cleanup day has dwindled over the past few years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The same people do everything and the numbers at the HRA are lower. In general [people] are either less available or less conscious of [the cleanup].â&#x20AC;? But the â&#x20AC;&#x153;positivesâ&#x20AC;? are still there, Morrison stressed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;On the whole generally we are more responsible. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot cleaner.â&#x20AC;? That being said, Morrison did ďŹ nd a rusty folding card table chair near the raceway and says too many dog owners fail to follow â&#x20AC;&#x153;poop and scoopâ&#x20AC;? etiquette. Cigarette smokers are still tossing the ends of their cigarettes onto the ground, she adds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have poop and scoop bags I give people.â&#x20AC;?

Norwood Lions busy with rain barrel campaign ďŹ rst club in the area to offer the rain barrels for sale and now clubs in Campbellford and Keene are also involved with their own projects. Last year, the Asphodel-Norwood BeautiďŹ cation Committee partnered with the Norwood Lions. Radnor says people can order them directly online at <> or through the municipal ofďŹ ce where they can purchase by cash or cheque. The ofďŹ cial collection day is May 11 and Radnor says people can order right up until May 10. He says the club is likely to ask for an order of 100 and store them so there is stock available for people who want to buy one after the fact.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a minor fund raiser but it ďŹ ts in with the environmental part of the club,â&#x20AC;? says Radnor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more of a community service.â&#x20AC;? The Adopt-a-Road program is facilitated by Peterborough County and allows participants a single-use waste site card during cleanups as well as gloves, blue bags for recyclables, safety vests and cones and signage indicating which group has adopted the county road. Since 1998, volunteer groups around the county have collected 4,437 bags of garbage and 1,192 bags of recyclables during Adopta-Road cleanups.

Don Snider and Brian Radnor of the Norwood Lions Club are gearing up for the clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual rain barrel campaign as well as the Wacky Water Day on May 18 which includes a yard sale and breakfast at Lions Park, blue whale races in the afternoon and an Italian feast at the town hall in the evening.

EMC News - Norwood - The Norwood Lions Club has launched another rain barrel campaign and hopes to follow the success of previous ventures including the one in 2012 which sold over 200 of the barrels that were â&#x20AC;&#x153;refurbished and repurposedâ&#x20AC;? out of shipping containers for fruit and vegetables. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because of the drought everyone applied for one around here,â&#x20AC;? says Brian Radnor, a member of the clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s environmental committee which is also holding an adopt-a-road cleanup along County Road 40 on May 6. The 45-gallon barrels are $55 each and will be either white or blue this year Each rain barrel comes fully equipped with a leaf and mosquito ďŹ lter basket, an overďŹ&#x201A;ow adaptor that permits multiple barrels to be connected in a series; 1.2 metres of overďŹ&#x201A;ow hose and a spigot attaches directly to a garden hose. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I used it constantly last summer,â&#x20AC;? said Radnor, who has three rain barrels. The barrels helped him ďŹ ll his swimming pool, he added. Rain barrels capture and store rain water collected from roofs through downspouts; they provide chlorine-free and ďŹ&#x201A;uoride-free water which is ideal for ďŹ&#x201A;owers, vegetables, lawns, shrubs and trees; they divert clean water from sewer systems and can provide cost savings for homeowners who currently pay to have water trucked to their home or who have metered water.

“We’re getting things done” By Bill F reeman

EMC News - Havelock - The Havelock-Belmont-Methuen Community Policing Committee is bullish about the year ahead and made another strong impression with their Cram the Cruiser food bank blitz at Havelock Foodland Saturday. “We’re getting things done with the group we have but we’re always willing to accept more. The ones we have are priceless and dedicated,” Elisa Walker, chair of the seven-member volunteer group told the Trent Hills Regional News. “The food bank does need help and this is making it that much easier,” Walker said as shoppers dropped off food items, including pre-packed bags prepared by Foodland staff. Saturday’s Cram the Cruiser event was a make-up date for one that was cancelled owing to the aftermath of the ice storm.

Walker says Foodland has the prepacked bags available every day for the food bank. Each of the bags is labelled indicating “exactly what is in it.” She praised store manager Jim Moore. “He’s helping us streamline it a lot better,” Walker said. “He is amazing and is behind us as much as we want.” “It’s amazing to have the support.” “Anything that we can do we will,” says Moore. “The support the volunteers get, that’s what makes it work and we’re just glad to help out any way we can.” About the pre-packed bags designated for the food bank Moore said: “We do it all the time; we just keep them going.” Walker says the policing committee plans to run radar blitzes in the village and township again this summer. “It’s not just to catch speeders but to monitor overall traffic,” she said. “We

want to talk to the township to find out where there have been complaints.” They would like to be able to use the mobile radar boards for extended periods of time, she added. The committee will soon see its membership jump by two as a couple of new volunteers come on board. “It is about making a contribution to the community,” Walker says. “It doesn’t take a whole lot of time and effort to do that. “This is the best township, the people, municipality and organizations they all work toward a common goal.” The community policing committee will also be running a beef on a bun barbeque at Celebrate Havelock on May 11 and will have plenty of information available about their group and the programs it supports. They would be glad to talk to anyone Peterborough County OPP Auxiliary Constables Adam McGlynn and Justin Cooper join Elisa Walker, interested in becoming part of the vol- of the Havelock-Belmont-Methuen Community Policing Committee, at the Cram the Cruiser drive at Havelock Foodland for the local food bank.

Stepping out for Community Care EMC News - Norwood - Community Care Norwood will hold its eighteenth annual walka-thon June 8 to help raise funds for programs it offers to residents in the area. “This is a major fund raiser for us each year to help us to be able to continue to offer services,” says Norwood program assistant Kelly Small. “This is a key contributor to keeping Community Care available to seniors in AsphodelNorwood,” says Small. Services supported by local fund raisers include transportation, friendly visiting, diner’s

clubs, reassurance calls, home help and home maintenance, personal distress alarms and frozen meals. Pledge sheets for people interested in participating in the walkathon are available at the Norwood Community Care office and from any of the organization’s local volunteers. Community Care events in May include a May 13 blood pressure clinic at the Springwood Apartments on Spring Street; a foot care clinic at the Pine Street Centre on May 13 and a May 14 diner’s club at Christ Church Anglican starting at noon.

St. Mary’s students Katherine Forestell, Emily McGee and Emma Stapley placed fourth ($700) with an idea to build a stream buffer at Lions Club Beach in Campbellford to help soak up the polluted water. Fifth place ($600) went to Kent students Taylor Polich, Brooke Seymour and Christina Venator with a plan to plant trees and increase the watershed forest cover near the Trent River.

EMC News - Brighton - Area students presented their proposals at the final competition last week of the Caring For Our Watersheds contest, sponsored by Agrium Advanced Technologies. Proposals were received from Grades 8 and 9 students who answered the question, “What can you do to improve your watershed?” After researching their local watershed, identifying an environmental concern and coming up with a realistic solution, six finalists gave their presentations to a panel of judges and all received cash awards. As well as $4,500 in prizes awarded to the presenters, their schools will receive a matching amount. An additional $10,000 in funding is also available to help the students implement their ideas. This year’s finalists were from East Northumberland Secondary School (ENSS) in Brighton, Kent Public School and St. Mary’s Catholic Elementary School in Campbellford. ENSS student Tyler Brown claimed the first-place prize of $1,000 for a more environmentally friendly way of disposing of dog waste by placing dispensers with biodegradable bags in convenient public locations throughout the watershed. Brown says the sight of some dog waste near a storm sewer inspired him. “I knew this couldn’t be good,” he said. “So I went home, researched it and realized I had to do something about it.” Second prize ($900) went to St. Mary’s students Cassidy Meier and CaitlynClaire Tizzard, who want to create a BioHaven floating island at Cold Creek and the Trent River to help treat polluted water before it flows into the river. Kent students Tyler Airhart, Jakob Brahaney, Isaac Dart and Caleb Nicholson won $800 for their idea to turn a creek

karen savoca Dynamic folk duo will play Hastings house party ENTERTAINMENT

By Bill Freeman

EMC Entertainment - Hastings - “They put some funk in folk” is how the dynamic musical partnership of Karen Savoca and Pete Heitzman has been described and area fans will get up-close-and-personal taste of the acclaimed duo’s music during an intimate house party in Hastings. The upstate New York pair will pay a visit to Marg and

Campbellford students head to Camp Enterprise EMC News - Campbellford - Twelve students from Campbellford District High School (CDHS) will be attending this year’s Camp Enterprise, hosted by Rotary clubs across Northumberland. The three-day camp at Trent University will be attended by 68 students from Grades 11 and 12 from each high school in Northumberland. The students are put in teams and compete in a variety of business, management and leadership activities to earn points. Camp Enterprise “is a perfect fit” for the Business Specialist High Skills Major offered at CDHS says Andrea Vanden Tillaart, Business Department Program leader.


Brighton Barn Theatre 96 Young Street, Brighton Presents

“You‛re Only Young Twice”

Rick Stanton’s Homewood Avenue home for a May 25 house gig that will explore the full range of songs the critically acclaimed music percussionist and singer Savoca and her guitar-playing partner Heitzman have been recording since they first met at a jam session at a popular Syracuse club. Savoca is touring behind “Promise,” her seventh solo recording and one that is garnering heaps of praise for its playful and entrancing blend of style and sound. “There’s soul in the delicious grooves and phrasing and soul in the broader spiritual sense that floats out of her lyrical vision,” a review in the Edmonton Journal says. Savoca, born in New Jersey, is the daughter of a big band singer and early on developed her musical passions which included the prodigious gift of memorizing song lyrics after a first listen. She eventually found her way to Syracuse University where she studied classical music while playing in a number of groups on campus and around the city. Heitzman is a Syracuse native and while playing around the city carved out a reputation as an ace guitarist touring across the U.S. with various bands. He met Savoca during a return trip to his hometown, invited out by friends to hear a new singer. They ended up jamming the night away and Heitzman was part of Savoca’s band the next day. They’ve been together ever since and have performed as a duo since the late 1990s piling up a string of well-regarded CDs and compilations which included recordings by the likes of Bob Dylan, Ry Cooder, Bonnie Raitt, Tom Waits and Lucinda Williams. Rare company indeed. It’s a perfect artistic union. Acoustic Guitar Magazine calls Heitzman “a true virtuoso of groove.

with pete

The highly regarded American duo of Karen Savoca and Pete Heitzman will be playing a house party concert in Hastings May 25.

“[He] has a sly touch that, combined with Savoca’s in-the-pocket drumming and spectacularly soulful vocals, gives the duo the impact of a four-piece band,” the magazine said. Adds Six String Concerts out of Columbus, Ohio: “Electrifying, unique and always uplifting, these improvisational

performers have the fearlessness of a high wire act working without a net.” Tickets for the Hastings show are $25 in advance and $30 at the door. The doors open at 7:30 p.m. for the 8 p.m. show. You can buy tickets by calling Rick or Marg at 705-6963295.

The Barn Theatre entertains By Ray Yurkowski

EMC Entertainment - Brighton - The Barn Theatre spring production of “You’re Only Young Twice” tells the tale of elderly widower, Brooksie (Tim Brodie), turned rebellious teenager, whose antics are the cause of dismay for his daughter (Trisha Trudeau) and son-in-law (Shawn Dubeau), following the death of his beloved wife Grace (Pat Dunn). With dialogue along the lines of “do you know what time he got in last night?” and “‘I will not stand for this behaviour in my house,” it’s a funny look at role reversal as, this time, it’s the parent who refuses to abide by the rules of the house. Dramatically, some poignant moments come with the introduction of the spirit of Grace, mostly while Brooksie is alone and the rapport between them is moving. “She just wells me up every time she comes on the stage,” says show director Sharron McMann, who directs Barn Theatre productions only once every two years. “Because it’s community theatre, the first goal is to make sure the group has fun. We all come out because we have the same passion and I like to put in a long break in rehearsals so they do come together. “Second is, we do a show that we’re proud of and third is putting on a production the audience will enjoy.” McMann openly admits to living through some openingnight jitters. “It’s not so much nervous, but more like excited,” she says. “I want everything to go really well for the actors. But once opening night has started, it’s really up to them. And it’s not only the actors, there are a hundred things that could wrong backstage.” “I also love watching the audience react,” she added, and opening night didn’t disappoint. “They’re laughing at the


right times.” The show features newcomer George Lamoureux, who plays Tom, in his firstever role on stage. “When I direct a production I have at least one new person,” says McMann. “New people bring a new energy and spark. It also helps bond the rest of the cast because they remember when they started out and they start helping each other. “Also, I think the audience enjoys seeing new people on stage and it gives me a challenge too. First, the challenge is finding that new person, then, working with them and developing them.” For a first-time effort, Lamoureux is a stand out. How did it feel on opening night? “I was excited, I was nervous and I got cold flashes, but once I heard the laughs, I knew we were doing a good

job,” he said. “I was so scared the audience wouldn’t laugh, but they did. It was great.” “I’ll do this again,” he added with a wide grin. “I wish I would have done this 40 years ago. All I can do now is play old guys but I hope there’s more to come.” The entire cast, including Kathy Lacasse as Rose and Holly Carroll as Julia, contributes to some solid entertainment. At a pre-show dress rehearsal last week, before backstage volunteers and their families, McMann notes the reaction of one person in the audience. “If they’re not rolling in the aisles, they’re dead,” she said with a laugh. Evening performances for “You’re Only Young Twice” begin at 8 p.m. on May 2, 3, 4, 9, 10 and 11 with a matinee at 2 p.m. on May 5. Tickets are $15 each. Call 613-475-2144 to reserve yours.

Changes in health care affect auxiliaries By Sue Dickens

EMC News - Campbellford - The impact of social media and the “new reality of a changing healthcare system” took centre stage as riveting topics for discussion against a backdrop of celebration marking the 70th anniversary of the Auxiliary to the Campbellford Memorial Hospital. The Central East Hospital Auxiliaries Association of Ontario (HAAO) held its spring conference here hosted by the local auxiliary led by its new president Norah McGowan. “We’re happy to have this conference as a way to kick off our celebrations,” McGowan told Trent Hills Regional News. “The conference gets all the different groups together and networking is a key component of the event,” she explained. “The theme of our conference is social media, something near and dear to my heart,” she explained. “One thing I really want to pursue is a way to put more information about our auxiliary online,” she added. From honouring life members to greetings from Trent Hills Mayor Hector Macmillan to afternoon breakout sessions that saw volunteers discuss everything from “best practices” to auxiliary gift shops, newsletters and the relevance of social media, the day-long event was filled with positive proactive discussions. Rob Fraser, president and CEO of made a presentation about “the information highway” and the social media imperative. The conference attracted more than 120 volunteers from the 11 auxiliaries throughout the Central East Region which goes as far north as Haliburton/Minden, south to Cobourg and as far west as Ajax. Campbellford’s auxiliary includes members from Marmora to Havelock and all of Trent Hills. Marion Saunders, the HAAO’s director of education spoke to members about the need for change within the organization. There are 146 auxiliaries/associations in Ontario representing 24,000 adult volunteers and 3,300 student volunteers, she noted.

Celebrating its 70th anniversary while hosting the Central East Hospital Auxiliaries Association of Ontario (HAAO) spring conference, volunteers gathered to learn more about “social media” and the future of their organization in a changing healthcare system: from left, Rosemarie Peikes, past president Auxiliary to the Campbellford Memorial Hospital; Rob Fraser, president and CEO of; Hospital auxiliary volunteers who participated in the “social media” breakout group during the Eleanor Stevenson, past chair, Central East Region HAAO; and newly elected President Campbellford Central East HAAO spring conference hosted by Campbellford included: from left to right, Bev Latva, auxiliary, Norah McGowan.

I’d rather budget a plan,” she said “It takes time but it’s got to be one of the most important things we do and it has been lacking. It’s going to take some discussion fairly early on about what we need [but] I don’t want to build operational plans until we’ve spent a little [time] on that.” Deputy-mayor Crowley agreed. “I would like to hear more of those opinions,” he said.

EMC News - Norwood - The township’s new CAO, Joe van Koeverden, would like to do “some planning or strategic look” into the near future as the municipality prepares itself for the 2014 budget process. “Melanie [treasurer Melanie Stubbs] has some plans to try to move that process forward and we need to take a look at some of our strategic stuff in the near future,” van Koeverden said during his first council meeting after joining AsphodelNorwood from his previous post with the City of Dryden. “I know there has been some discussion, whether from staff or council. I do suggest we do some looking at that.” Mr. van Koeverden suggested holding a special meeting to “discuss what you’d like to see to move forward; an immediate plan for 2014 … to set some goals and objectives for the year; things [we] should be striving for” to finish up the term of the current council before the next municipal election in 2014. Deputy-mayor Joe Crowley also suggested that the departmental management team put together a short “wish list” that would contribute to the discussion. “We may not agree [but] as a vision of our operation I think it’s important our management team have some input of what they think might be needed,” Crowley said. Councillor Mary Hay says she “appreciates the need for a short-term strategic plan to follow out the term of council” but advocates something with a longer lens. “Strategic plans usually have a life of three to five years,” Hay said. A long-term strategic plan helps with “continuity and moving things forward,” she said, especially with the real possibility of a provincial election in the coming months that could change the political landscape, “[Having] a plan that goes beyond the term of council

Youth Advisory Council cleans up to celebrate Earth Day By Sue Dickens

EMC News – Campbellford - Celebrating Earth Day students here participated in a cleanup of the community. The Campbellford/Seymour Community Foundation’s (CSCF) Youth Advisory Council held their annual Earth Day cleanup, which started at the high school, explained Martha Murphy, Foundation executive director. “YAC have been cleaning up our community on Earth Day since 2005,” she said. Wearing T-shirts donated by Tim Hortons, the students were also treated with beverages and Timbits. The Municipality of Trent Hills provided gloves and garbage bags for the project. Members of YAC who participated in the cleanup included Leah Carson, Hannah Curle, her sister Caroline Curle and William Wowk, all Grade 12 students and Hazel McMillan, who is in Grade 10. The Campbellford/Seymour Youth Advisory Council was formed in 2003 and YAC was created in an attempt to bring youthful energy and ideas to the Campbellford/ Seymour community.

In turn, YAC provides local youth with a voice and a forum. YAC members provide guidance to the Foundation board on grant applications to the Children and Youth Recreation Endowment Fund for worthwhile youth projects in the community. The YAC operates as a Campbellford District High School youth committee and a new council is formed at the beginning of each school year. With the support of an adult advisor from the CSCF board, and a teacher advisor from the high school, YACs initiate youth driven ideas and develop youth to youth grant-making strategies. In addition to training and experience in fund development and grant-making, YAC members serve as active resources and leaders in their school and their community. Kira Mees is the board advisor and Trish Wood is the teacher advisor. Other YAC activities have included the “We Day” conference; Hallowe’en for Hunger; and Campbellford Children’s Wish Campaign (toy drive). For more information on YAC go to: <http://>.

Default speed limit of 50 kilometres an hour comes to light By Sue Dickens

EMC News - Trent Hills - The statutory speed limit on all municipal roads in Trent Hills is 50 kilometres an hour, a fact that has gone undetected since amalgamation in 2001. “As a result of some of our policy reviews and looking at blending of some of the former bylaws of the four municipalities, we discovered that we are classified as a town which is a more urban classification as opposed to a rural township and because of that our default R0012055238

speed limit or speed limit unless otherwise posted is actually 50 kilometres an hour,” said Mike Rutter, CAO. The revelation was presented at a recent council meeting where it was decided that a process of education and a period of transition before enforcing the legal speed limit would be the best route to travel. “We’ve been operating under the assumption for quite a while that our default speed limit was 80 kilometres an hour, because if you look at our municipality it has a very rural look with the exception of the three urban centres,” said Rutter. Liability and the law dictate the need to recognize the error. Several options were put forward to council such as requesting an amendment to the Highway Traffic Act, to revert back to 80 kilometres an hour as the statutory speed. “Any advice we’ve received from our solicitor has been that our chances of that would be slim,” said Rutter. The second option would be “to bylaw and sign roadways with an 80-kilometres-an-hour speed so we could actually change it.” Rutter pointed out that because many of those existing roads were not designed by an engineer “we wouldn’t know the safe driving speed and that would be a liability concern.” The third option, which is what council has decided to do, in a staged approach to implementation “to actually impose a 50 km/hour statutory speed limit on all of our roads with the exception of those areas where council has already made them 40 because that is a safer driving speed.” The public will be asked to identify roads it believes could be safely navigated at 80 kilometres an hour and a review by an engineer would follow, as funding becomes available. Councillor Meirion Jones said he has had several people come up to him saying they were “shocked” some roads were 80 kilometres an hour. Councillor Eugene Brahaney said he supports the concept of the lower speed limit. Rutter noted that educating the public is crucial and that eventually signage would have to be put up. “For many years people have assumed 80 kilometres an hour unless otherwise signed. We really need to talk to our community about this,” he said. Total signage for this project would be “less than $10,000 or so,” he noted. “Again it’s risk management from our perspective … it’s due diligence on our part.” Trent Hills Mayor Hector Macmillan pointed out that there is a need for discussion with the Police Services Board and the Northumberland OPP, “to make them aware of this situation and to phase in their activities as well to give people the chance to get used to it,” He will be requesting “that people be treated fairly with a warning initially.” There are 529 kilometres of municipal roads in Trent Hills, almost half of which (48.4 per cent) are gravel.


Hornets in limelight at awards By Bill Freeman

EMC Sports - Norwood - Norwood District Minor Sports hockey-playing Hornets were in the limelight during the organization’s annual awards gala. It was a chance to applaud the efforts of its 158 players and 11 teams and to thank the volunteers, sponsors and parents who make it all possible. “Without that time, effort and commitment” there would be no hockey in Norwood, NDMS president Rob Buchanan said. Atom LL coach Jeff Hackett summed it up nicely: “The main goal is to enjoy the game of hockey; if we did this then we did our job.” The award winners were: ESSO medallions Junior Tyke - most improved, Rhys Adar; sportsmanship, Blake Graham; dedication, Evan Seeney Senior Tyke - most improved, Nick Payne; Kieran Cook; sportsmanship, Logan Langlois; Hudson Buchanan; dedication, Rowan Stewart, Ewan Walsh Novice LL - most improved, Brodie Graham; sportsmanship, Daniel Begg; dedication, Madison Leeper Novice A - most improved, Tori Reynolds; sportsmanship, Riley Thompson; dedication, Mitchell Crowley Atom A - most improved, Nic Pedersen, Davin Stewart; sportsmanship, Sam Toms, Jon Hughes; dedication, Dawson Baptie, Scott Emery Atom LL - most improved, Hunter Doherty; sportsmanship, Zoe Fox; dedication, Gavin Kimball Peewee - most improved, Josh Pope, John Sullivan; sportsmanship, Owen Hubert, Jesse Rowatt; dedication, Jack Wilson, Andrew Hembruff Bantam A - most improved, Dylan Finley, Isaac Dart; sportsmanship, Gavin Woodburn, Eric Sicker; dedication, Nic Buchanan, Nolan Beamish Bantam LL - most improved, Avery Woods; sportsmanship, Mitchell Rogers; dedication, Michael Elliott Midget A - most improved, David Moore; sportsmanship, Derek Wynne; dedication, Travis Bennett Midget AE - most improved, Rodney Fleming; sportsmanship, Tyler Atkinson; dedication, Luke Campbell NDMS Awards Jr. Tyke - most improved, Ryan Cruise Sr. Tyke - top goalie, Tanner Beavis; top defenceman, AJ Heffernan; top rookie, Ryder Adair; top playmakers, Amber Murray, Ethan Toms; NDMS award, Gordon Walsh Novice LL - MVP, Colby Hansbridge; most improved in play-offs, Nathan Honey Novice A - MVP, Jackson Stewart;

Colts wrap up another banner year By Bill Freeman

EMC Sports - Campbellford - It was celebration day for Campbellford Minor Hockey and its 180 Colts Saturday at the CMHAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual awards Saturday at the Campbellford-Seymour Community Centre. It was also an opportunity to watch CMHA executive Dennis Doherty parade around in a Toronto

Maple Leafs sweater, a bet lost but one honoured gracefully by the Colorado Avalanche fan. A Silver Stick Championship by the River Inn Juvenile Colts followed up by a second straight trip to the OMHA final were just two of the things worth celebrating during a year when NHL hockey went dark for much of the winter and the spotlight shone on the grassroots of the

sport. The lockout battle between billionaires and millionaires had unintended consequences for the CMHA which lost at least $4,000 in revenue because their annual NHL pool had to be scrapped. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of our major fund raisers was lost,â&#x20AC;? says CMHA executive and registrar Mike Sherwin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fund raising is really about trying to keep

our costs down, about the health of our club and to keep our rates reasonable so kids can play hockey.â&#x20AC;? Sherwin applauded parents, sponsors and volunteers for their ongoing support of minor hockey. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It really is about your support for your kids keeping things positive in the rink and in the car,â&#x20AC;? he said addressing parents. At 180 players, Sherwin says registration remains â&#x20AC;&#x153;consistent with the past few years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re happy to see us hold those numbers fairly well,â&#x20AC;? he said. Sponsorships and the work of the CMHA Ladies Auxiliary, which supplied hockey socks and the juvenile bus to the OMHA final, â&#x20AC;&#x153;help to keep some of our costs down. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a lot of community support here to keep this organization going strong.â&#x20AC;? Sherwin used the occasion to promote early registration which helps the organization plan for next season

so they can â&#x20AC;&#x153;come up with a better game plan rather than scrambling in September. It makes our job a lot easier in September.â&#x20AC;? The move from AE to Local League (LL) play was a â&#x20AC;&#x153;really positive move,â&#x20AC;? Sherwin added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our teams were very competitive at that level. It allowed a lot of our kids to shine and really develop.â&#x20AC;? The CMHA will be looking at a slight increase in fees next year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not something we want to do; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something we have to do, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the reality of it,â&#x20AC;? said Sherwin, adding that they strive â&#x20AC;&#x153;to keep things manageable.â&#x20AC;? This past season registrations generated $56,126 in revenue. CMHA rates were $450, treasurer Nancy Boivin said. By comparison Norwood charged $600 and Centre Hastings charged $625. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not looking to putting it up that high, we just want to get comparisons,â&#x20AC;? said Boivin.

“It took a lot of work” says gold winner By Bill Freeman

EMC Sports - Norwood - “It took a lot of work and I’m glad I did it,” Samantha Neveu says of the nine-year process of attaining her Skate Canada Gold Test certificate. Samantha and teammate Lauren Bell of the Norwood District Figure Skating Club were honoured during the club’s annual awards night but Sam was unable to attend the ceremony to receive the muchsought-after certificate or the Cathy Ireland Memorial Award for being the most enthusiastic senior skater. “I’m really proud of it,” Sam told the Trent Hills Regional News. And she was “very surprised” by the Cathy Ireland Memorial. “I didn’t think I’d get the most enthusiastic.” It is a long road to the Gold Dance but she and Lauren were steady to the task although Sam admits there were a couple of dances that she “got stuck on at the beginning.” Those would be the European and American Waltzes, at the senior bronze and junior silver respectively, which she did a number of times before nailing them. “I don’t know what was so difficult. People Havelock native Sam Neveu shows off her Skate Canada Gold Dance certificate and the Cathy Ireland Memorial Most Enthusiasjust get stuck on things sometimes,” she said with tic Senior Skater award she received from the Norwood District Skating Club. She was unable to attend the club’s recent awards a laugh. She capped her pursuit of gold with the ceremony. Photo: Bill Freeman Viennese Waltz, the Westminster Waltz, the Quick-

step, the Argentine Tango and the Silver Samba. In total, Sam and Lauren moved through six levels and 23 dances to achieve their gold certificates starting out with the three preliminary dances and moving through junior bronze, senior bronze, junior silver, senior silver to gold. Beyond that are six Diamond Dances. Sam has also completed the senior skills and is almost done her gold skills, something that may take a little more time after she graduates from Norwood District High School and heads off to post-secondary study. The Havelock native, also an NDHS rugby and volleyball player, has been a figure skater since she was four years old and is glad she took on the sport. “I like the fitness aspect of it and that it’s a little more creative.” Whether she continues on as a coach will depend on the demands of post-secondary school. She is a volunteer program assistant with the NDSC. “It’s hard to say.” Her time with the Norwood District Figure Skating Club and with coach Leanne Decker has been “awesome,” Sam says. Sam is also working toward a Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award after receiving a silver honour last year from Ontario Lieutenant Governor David Onley.

Junior Mites in danger of striking out By Sue Dickens

EMC Sports – Campbellford - The Junior Mite division is facing a strikeout this season unless more players sign up. “Last season we had 13 Junior Mites and a good turnout for our Initiation Program [IP] so we thought we were set for Junior Mites. But with only five registered, we need at least ten and more,” said Gary Torrance of the Campbellford Minor Softball Association (CMSA). He spoke with Trent Hills Regional News on Monday hoping publicity will put the word out and result in young players signing up. “We are the ones who pushed to have Junior Mites included in the Centre Hastings League. Maybe a little embarrassing if we can’t make it happen,” he said with candor. “Our Junior Mite program [new] hit full stride last season [following a trial season] with five centres participating. It is a stepping stone between local Initiation programs and our Mite league,” he explained. Junior Mites is open to kids born in 2005 and 2006. The Centre Hastings League sched-

uling is taking place next Tuesday, May 7, so anyone wishing to enter a team would have to do so before that time. “Towns would not have to enter a full slate of teams, one category would be acceptable,” said Torrance. “Centre Hastings is the only survivor providing softball to kids who just want to play the game for fun,” he said. The Centre Hastings Softball League was established in 1971. It had teams in Mite, Squirt, Peewee and Bantam located in Spring Brook, Tweed, Frankford, Madoc and Eldorado. Torrance, who helps organize things and looks after umpires and scheduling, said at that time there also were other youth leagues established such as the East Peterborough League (with Jim Fife in charge) and the Tri-County League. The Kawartha League was established in the 1990s as well as the higher rated 401 league. Centres participating for the 2013 season (and have for a number of years) are Spring Brook, Tweed, Campbellford, Norwood, Eldorado, Frankford, Belleville and Douro. “And we are hoping there might be more interest. Belleville and Douro are restricted at present but we are hoping for more representation from both,” he added. “Our Mite, Squirt and Peewee have full participation with many centres having more than one team but we always have room for more,” he said. But it’s the Junior Mites everyone here is worried about. Colleen Kelly, who coached them last year is ready to go again this season. Her son Evan is a player.

“We’re not sure what is going on with the Junior Mites. We had quite a few kids in the Initiation Program,” noted Torrance. “Junior Mites is like a transition year between IP and Mite where they are playing regular softball,” he commented.


“In Junior Mites, everybody bats, all the players go on the field for every inning,” he added. Anyone wanting to register can call Gary Torrance at 705-653-1418 or Rod Torrance, Campbellford Minor Softball Association president at 705-632-9209.

By Scott Pettigrew

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

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

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

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

Equine program a confidence-builder

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

Washington Island’s Stavkirke (Church of Staves).

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

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

Scouts help plant trees with Quinte Conservation

Scouts come across the field to plant trees off Frankford Road. Photo: Kate Everson

EMC News - Belleville - Quinte Conservation got a helping hand in planting trees last week. In fact, they got many helping hands. “We have Scouts from Second Sidney, Belleville, Trenton and Wooler,” said Scout co-ordinator Nick Fry. Fry said they have had the program for several years where Scouts plant trees. “They have planted millions across Canada,” he said. “It’s part of our environmental program.” He said they work with Quinte Conservation on those lands so they know the trees will not be harvested. Trees are planted as buffers and as part of reforestation. “We are planting 500 trees today,” said Quinte Conservation ecologist Tim Trustham. “We do this every spring.” The volunteers planted an assortment of white pine, white spruce and poplar on a field off Frankford Road west of Fox-

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

The Good Earth:

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

The emerald ash borer

ROSSMORE 613-966-6656

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

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

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

By Bill Freeman

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

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

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

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

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

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

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