Legion museum wins prestigious heritage award

By Bill Freeman

EMC News - Norwood - The Norwood Legion has received the Peterborough Historical Society’s prestigious Samuel Armour Heritage Award for the establishment of its burgeoning military museum. Branch 300 joined five other heritage award recipients at a special ceremony last week in the historic 176-year-old Keeping Room of the Hutchinson House Museum. The awards honour individuals and organization that have made significant contributions to heritage preservation and promotion in Peterborough and the surrounding area. CHEX Television personality Graham Hart was master of ceremonies with Historical Society president Barb McIntosh

making the presentations. “I didn’t expect it,” said Branch 300 Life Member Rob Gordon, the brainchild behind the museum which has transformed upstairs space in the former Norwood High School building. “This is an award to the branch,” Gordon stressed in an interview with Trent Hills Regional News. The public has enjoyed visiting the ever-evolving museum but one of the main reasons Gordon and others at the branch pursued their dream of a museum was to bring the community’s military history closer to students, particularly those at Norwood District High School. “We used to take veterans to the schools; I was youth education officer at the time

and that’s possibly where I got the idea as well. There were only three or four I could take to the schools and now they’re gone,” Gordon said. “Having these artefacts there and being able to talk about them to these youngsters keeps the memory of all these people alive.” “The veterans who left all their badges and regimental flashes, it really meant something to them and they were proud to belong to these units. Most of these veterans are gone now. All I’ve done is organize it. We’re keeping their legacy alive, that’s the way I feel about it.” Gordon says he’s “tried to emphasize the local aspect of it” so visitors will see everything from Boer War sheet music sold at a Norwood music store to a briga-

dier general’s uniform that belonged to a former NDHS vice principal. He hopes to add sound so visitors could listen to original period music while they browse the collection that will soon expand along the old school’s corridor. Gordon credits the late Les Craig, a veteran of the Battle of Ortona and the Battle of Europe, for collecting some of the flashes and the late Bob Beynon, a branch president and sergeant major, for displaying old photos. The Asphodel-Norwood Historical Society has also been supportive. “From the people who brought back these artefacts from the time of their service, to people like Bob, it’s been a building process,” he added.

New partnership policy and new ways to raise funds EMC News - Trent Hills - Mouthwatering pancakes and sausages, compliments of the Campbellford Lions Club, were not the only thing on the menu at the kickoff breakfast for the sixth annual Trent Hills Relay for Life. Cancer survivors, team captains, volunteers and partners gathered at the curling club in Campbellford last week with what they hope will be a recipe for another successful fund raiser. “We’ve changed the way we’re organized,” Dave MacDougall told the group. “We’ve always had chairs or cochairs and this year we’re having what we are calling a round table or self-directed team,” he explained.

Cancer survivor Frank Williams of Trent River spoke to the volunteers and partners gathered at the kickoff breakfast for the sixth annual Trent Hills Relay for Life, offering an emotional thank-you to the sponsors, the committee, team captains and the Canadian Cancer Society. Photo: Sue Dickens

Last year MacDougall co-chaired the event with volunteer Darlene Brown. “We’re trying something new this year … we’re always rejigging and trying to improve,” he added, noting that he is now part of the logistics committee working with Jim Curle and Brown. With the task of raising funds ahead of them, MacDougall commented, “Most takes place during the year and the Relay itself … the 12 hours spent at the fairgrounds … is really the culmination of 12 months of fund raising.” During the past five years, Trent Hills Relay for Life has raised $641,851. “That shows we are a really very giving community and there is so much competition now for volunteer work and volunteer dollars that I think it is remarkable the way our community backs the cancer society,” commented MacDougall. What will remain the same this year is the partnership with the Campbellford Memorial Hospital (CMH) Foundation which was established in 2012. “The Relay For Life partnership was a groundbreaking way to help raise funds for Canadian Cancer Society research and community services as well as the acquisition of much needed funding for digital mammography machine for Campbellford Memorial Hospital,” said John Russell, executive director of the CMH Foundation. The current mammography equipment at CMH is analogue and uses film-based technology and is 12 years old, nearing the end of its working life. What is different this year is a new policy for that partnership. Under the renewed agreement newly registered Relay for Life teams, those who didn’t participate last year, can designate the funds they raise to the hospital. “I applaud the Canadian Cancer Society for adopting this new policy … the new partnership will ensure the support of the critical programs the Canadian Cancer Society provides to local cancer patients and their families, as well as helping to support urgently needed cancer diagnostic equipment for Campbellford Memorial Hospital,” said Russell. There will be two Relay for Life teams based out of the hospital. One captained by CEO Brad Hilker and the other by mammographer Katie Mountain. Russell also announced a new fund-raising event in the fight against cancer, to be held July 7 in Marmora in support of the hospital teams, called “Bark for Life,” for dogs and

The growing success of the museum means that people are donating items of historical interest. “Things have started to roll in now,” says Gordon. “I’ve got some more to put up from Australia. There’s lots to be done.” “It’s wonderful; it’s putting Norwood on the map once again,” branch secretary Lloyd Gaskin said. “It’s amazing what he’s accomplished Rob Gordon and Lloyd Gaskin, representing the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 300, Norwood, accept just by perseverthe Samuel Armour Heritage Award during the Peterborough Historical Society’s annual heritage ance, one step at a awards evening.

Famed artist scopes out Hastings fish sculpture site

By Bill Freeman

EMC News - Hastings - Famed artist and filmmaker Bill Lishman was in Hastings last week to scope out the site of the fish sculpture he plans to design and create as part of a project conceived by a group of local residents. The group was one of four selected to use funds from the $25,000 Ultimate Fishing Town Canada grand prize Hastings received last summer from the World Fishing Network. The “composition of fish sculptures” will get $12,000 from the Hastings Environmental Group (HEG) which is administering the fund. “It’s a monument to the natural fish that live here,” said Lishman, known to the general public as the man at the centre of the award-winning film Fly Away Home as much as for his iconic art installations. The first sculpture will have 12-foot-long fish, likely a pickerel, swimming in its natural form suspended above a walkway that will “meander” underneath the sculpture. The long-range plan is to add different species of fish to the sculpture in future years. “It would be as if you were shrunk to a small size and the fish are swimming past you,” Lishman told the Trent Hills Regional News. “In this park setting it would be unique. I don’t know anywhere else in the world where there’d be a sculpture like that. “There are lots of sculptures of leaping fish but none in their natural form as they swim,” he said. “It’s as if they come out of the water and were swimming across you and then back into the water. It’s kind of a surreal point of view in a natural park setting with natural growth and places to sit, a place to educate kids about species of fish.” “It is the Ultimate Fishing in Canada so this is a monument to that too.” “We’re quite excited about seeing this because it’s actually

going to be a park setting where people can sit and look at the fish above them,” group member Murray Townshend added. “It will give them the feeling they’re there with the fish and they walk among them,” Townshend said. Townshend said the group wanted a site that was visible from multiple points of view. “You can capture this from every angle. It shows a place of gathering,” he said. “People will be drawn to this spot. The idea is to get people to

stop and see what’s in this town.” “It’s very visible to everyone passing through and in town,” Doug Simms agreed. “The idea of a group of fish swimming right next to the river itself; the sculpture will be an extension of the river. People will be seen to be walking on the riverbed looking up at the fish.” The property is owned by Trent Hills and Sims says they’re “very much interested in pursuing the project.”

Lishman says he’ll build a model and create a video animation so people can “tune into it visually. “It’s going to take some funds to do it and people would like to know what they’re buying.” Lishman says the project is “exciting because you become kind of like an actor; you get the sense of the fish in the water and try to capture that and put it into the sculpture.”

She was one of eight girls running in the Under 19, five-kilometre division posting a time of 40:02. “What a wonderful day for Community Care,” said board president Jim Patterson. “Over 150 volunteers and 480 participants raised almost $38,000 for the work we do every day for our clients in Peterborough City and County. We had a great turnout today and we start work tomorrow for next year’s event.” The event is Community Care’s most

important fund-raising event, says Patterson. The organization runs on an annual budget of $2 million and receives $1.2 million from the provincial government; the $800,000 balance is met through fund raisers like Kilometres for Care. “We saw an incredible turnout,” executive director Danielle Belair added. “The weather was absolutely perfect [and] the volunteers and participants all had a great time. It was a day to remember. Staff, volunteers and community members all came together to put on an event that will have an important impact on clients of Community Care. “I could not be more proud of the event,” Belair said. Every dollar collected through fund raising is used in the Peterborough area.

Leaving CDHS in May the team then cycles to schools in Brighton, Castleton, Port Hope, Bowmanville and beyond. Eight members of the police service, four county OPP and one retired NHL player, John Druce, make up the team of cyclists. Druce grew up in Peterborough and played hockey with the Peterborough Petes from 1984-1986 and has been a member of the Pedal for Hope team since inception. He and his teammates will be touring Peterborough County, City of Kawartha Lakes, Haliburton Highlands and Northumberland County over a period of three weeks as they visit students in close to 60 schools.

Each year these dedicated individuals participate in public head shave events or bike rides and raise funds to fight cancer by collecting pledges from their co-workers, friends and family. Since 2005 the Pedal for Hope team has raised over $1.7 million, with the help of students, staff and community members. So far this year the total amount raised online is $37,318.25. The Canadian Cancer Society Cops for Cancer events such as Pedal for Hope have raised more than $50.4 million for cancer research and support programs.

Just exactly how low is too low?

Dear Editor, As Canada decides how to tackle the national debt, it would be a good time to look at our corporate tax rate. The CCPA Monitor carries an alternative budget each year with lots of data to back it up. Here are a few facts from this year’s version. Canada’s corporate tax rate is almost 1/3 that of the USA, our biggest trading partner. It is four percentage points be-

Thanks to English Line vets

Dear Editor, The English Line Veterinary Service was very busy the day I rushed my suffering, old dog there unannounced. If I didn’t mind waiting, they’d make time and a cheerful woman lifted Sally’s 65 pounds out of the car, then carried her up the steps into the building through the office and into the treatment room where a blanket had been laid on the floor. Sally, a Border Collie/Samoyed mix ate up all the attention she was getting. After the diagnosis was made and medication prescribed, she managed to totter back out to the car with only

a little help. At home there were piles of old blankets for her to lie on indoors and out. Each night there was a meaty, medicated meal for her to enjoy. A couple of months went by until one morning she couldn’t move and had to be dragged on her blanket until we were finally outdoors, where she took the treat I offered. The dreaded phone call was made followed by the struggle to get her into the car. It was again time to place Sally into the caring hands of the people at English Line. Marilyn McColl, Campbellford

low the next lowest in the developed world, the Netherlands. Canada is 11 percentage points below the nearest G8 country, which is the UK, all of which suggests that corporations are taking us to the cleaners. The most dynamic country in the EU is Germany with double our corporate tax rate. So what are corporations doing with all this stash of money? “Investing” is a much-abused word. Years ago it usually meant helping build a company, which employed people. Now it seems more and more, it means hiding it from the taxman. Five of Canada’s top eight destinations for direct foreign investment are tax havens. Next, we have the “masters of industry.” During the last ten years the richest one per cent have received most of the increase in income, but are paying less than all the other income groups including the bottom ten per cent. High rollers can use a “stock option deduction” on their compensation, which allows them to

pay tax at half the rate of the rest of us. Capital gains deduction also allows the tax rate at a half of normal employment taxes. Even those who voluntarily declare hidden income, actually save on interest apparently at half the amount due, plus none have been charged according to the Globe and Mail. At the other end where I sit, we are told to save for our retirement, as pensions may not be there for us, while our jobs are outsourced, either in or outside Canada. The temporary foreign worker program alone has killed 300,000 Canadian jobs and depressed wages. The main loss of jobs it appears is from offshore companies doing work for Canadian companies, which would have been done here only a few years ago. Call service centres can operate from India just as well as Canada. A movement to temporary or part-time designation, when workers are in reality, employed full time, also means more poverty down the road

as they become unemployed or too old to perform their trade. While fast food outlets bring in offshore workers at minimum wage and no benefits to increase profits, it’s worth looking at the top. The CEO of Mac-jobs makes a base pay of a little under a million dollars, plus stock options of $660.129, plus option awards? Of $3.2 million, plus incentive pay of $8.6 million, plus other compensation of $324,816 add in the use of a company plane and retirement plan contributions say $14 million to $15 million. All of the above should be a concern for our three levels of government. Presently no one seems to be taking any notice, while company profits soar. Capitalism works to maximize profits, yet if the average Joe cannot pay his bills, how will he buy capitalism’s widgets, hire services or pay taxes etc?   Paul Whittaker, Gilmour

Dear Editor, Lynn Wilson of Campbellford is all excited about riding her e-bike. But, she does not realize that riding in traffic is a whole different world. If I were her I would be practising on side streets to gain balance of her bike and the proper use of brakes etc. Also if she does not have turning signals, by law she must use all of the manual signals required. She would be

wise to go to the licence bureau and pick up a motorcycle  learners handbook. This manual has many pointers on how to ride in traffic. You must ride with the flow of traffic on a busy street, watch out for idiots opening car doors without looking and the list goes on. If they ride on streets and highways they should have to pay a licence fee for upkeep of that roadway and pay insurance not only to protect herself

but other persons and property. I have been riding a motorcycle going on 30-plus years. Every ride is a new adventure; at times you would swear you have a target on your back. I wish Lynn well. Drive safe and watch out for the other driver. Gene Hamelin, Hastings

Community yard sale will roll again By Bill Freeman

EMC News - Hastings - The Hastings community yard sale is back by popular demand but with a different team behind it. The Hastings Waterfront Festival is taking over from the Hastings Revitalization Association which had decided not to hold the event this year. “But we’ve gotten so many phone calls that the Waterfront Festival Committee has agreed to run it,” Festival chair Erin Farley says.

OPINION The third option

EMC Editorial - There are, we are told, only two options. Either we stop burning fossil fuels before our carbon dioxide emissions drive the planet’s average temperature up a full 2 degrees C (3.6 degrees F), in which case we will push the world into the biggest-ever recession. Or we conGwynne Dyer tinue to burn fossil fuels and push the planet into runaway warming, with lethal consequences for a large part of the human race. The 2008 bank crash that triggered the recent recession was caused mainly by reckless investment that created a “bubble” in house prices. When the bubble burst, hundreds of billions of dollars’ worth of investments suddenly became worthless. The losses were so great that they nearly brought the whole banking system down. This time the problem is a “carbon bubble.” The market valuation of the world’s 200 biggest oil, gas and coal companies is about $4 trillion, a figure based on the assumed value of their confirmed reserves that are still in the ground. Or, more precisely, a figure based on the assumption that they will eventually be able to sell all of those reserves to customers who want to burn them. On the strength of that assumption, the fossil fuel companies have been able to take on $1.5 trillion of debt, and last year alone they spent $647 billion in the search for even more oil, gas and coal reserves. But what if they will never be able to sell all of their reserves? What if the need to avoid runaway warming forces governments to curb the burning of fossil fuels, so that much of those reserves has to stay underground forever? This is the focus of a new report titled “Unburnable Carbon 2013.” The report’s authors, the Grantham Research Institute at the London School of Economics and the Carbon Tracker Initiative, have the support of organisations like the HSBC and Citi banks, the Standard and Poor’s rating agency, and the International Energy Agency. Their conclusion is that if we are to have a 50 per cent

chance of stopping the warming before +2 degrees, then at least two-thirds of the currently listed fossil fuel reserves will have to stay in the ground permanently. If they cannot be burned, then they have no economic value. Therefore, the market valuation of the fossil fuel companies is three times higher than it should be. The report assumes that rationality will prevail, and that at some point a limit will be imposed on the burning of fossil fuels. In this new reality, the debt burden of the fossil fuel companies becomes unsustainable and there is a financial meltdown that dwarfs 2008. Global warming is held to +2 degrees, but at the cost of the Mother of All Recessions. The other option is that no controls are imposed on burning fossil fuels, and the carbon bubble does not burst until the warming breaks through the two-degree limit and triggers the natural feedbacks that will carry us inexorably up to +6 degrees C. That implies mass death and possibly civilisational collapse by the end of the century, but the fossil fuel reserves will retain their assumed value for the meantime and there will be no financial crash. It’s a grim choice: either financial meltdown if we act decisively to halt climate change, or physical meltdown if we don’t. But there is, unfortunately, a third alternative. In fact, it’s the likeliest outcome by far. First we go on growing our emissions at the current rate (three per cent per year) for the next couple of decades, and the fossil fuel industry thrives. Then, when it’s already too late and we have crossed the +2 degree limit, the actual warming (which always lags the growth in emissions by a decade or more) frightens us into taking action at last. So we lurch into a crash program to cut fossil fuel use— and suddenly the market wakes up to the fact that a lot of those reserves will have to stay in the ground forever. If you liked the sub-prime mortgage fiasco in 2008, you’ll positively love this one. It’s not either Disaster A or Disaster B. It’s first one and then the other, interlocking and mutually reinforcing. And Disaster B will mean there’s no money left to do anything about Disaster A.


Four days without power is unacceptable Dear Editor, For the second time this year, electricity service to my home has been interrupted for a prolonged period by an electrical power outage. This latest outage lasted 83 hours (four days). Some are still waiting for power to be restored. While I appreciate that the ice storm caused havoc across the province and that thousands lost their power, and also understand that rural areas present some unique challenges when it comes to restoring the grid, I fail to comprehend why it took Hydro One so long to restore power in some areas. In the five years I have lived in this community there have been frequent power outages and several, most notably in 2011, lasted in excess of three days. Is it any wonder people and businesses are reluctant to locate to rural areas that experience extended power outages every time there’s an extreme weather event? This is completely unacceptable! This is 2013 in southern Ontario, Canada, one of the developed world’s most prosperous and technologically advanced countries, not some third world banana republic.  I don’t live at the end of some isolated dirt road miles from anywhere serviced by an antiquated power line (mine is buried underground).  I live on a major paved county road in a municipality of 12,500 people, many of whom had their power restored a full two days earlier. Did Hydro One not learn anything from the great ice storm of 1998? It speaks volumes if Hydro One’s present electricity delivery infrastructure and rural power grid is so fragile that a relatively minor ice storm can cause such widespread damage

that it requires four days or longer to repair it. It also begs the question why my telephone landline, which relies on similar (if not shared) infrastructure, remained intact and operational throughout this entire ordeal. Obviously some investments need to be made by the province to upgrade and modernize the rural power grid. Imagine if the hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars squandered by the Ontario Liberal government in cancellation fees for moving gas-fired generating plants around the province for political gain (fees that you’ll be paying for on your hydro bill by the way) had been used instead to update and maintain the electricity delivery infrastructure in rural areas? Since the Hydro infrastructure is apparently so unreliable in rural Ontario, imagine if the Ontario Liberal government, which has also wasted millions of taxpayer dollars in subsidies for ill-conceived and uneconomically viable “green” solar and wind power schemes, had instead provided subsidies or tax credits toward the purchase of gasoline powered generators that would actually benefit rural Ontario residents during times of emergency power outages. Will Hydro One, a monolithic monopoly utility, be providing any sort of compensation for the lack of service delivery, out of pocket expenses, loss of income, severe hardship and inconvenience caused by this electrical outage and subsequent delay in service resumption experienced by its customers? These are all things to ponder the next time you pay your hydro bill … or visit the ballot box. Paul MacDonald, Trent Hills

We’re cold, the cats aren’t By Terry Bush

EMC Editorial - We’re a little behind in the firewood department this year, a position one never wants to be in with blackfly and mosquito season just around the corner. Instead of enjoying themselves abroad during the March cutting season, people smarter than we are were busy in the woods, dropping and limbing trees, blocking them up and splitting them into stove-size pieces which are now all neatly stacked, drying in the sun. Our wood, while it’s down, has not seen fit to find its way anywhere near the woodpile, which now consists of sundry bits of punky maple and small pieces of elm limb wood. Hardly an inspiring sight considering it’s now too wet to go and retrieve a better quality of combustible. I put the blame for this predicament squarely on the shoulders of our two cats. Sixteen years ago, Zoe and Hamish arrived at our place for a weekend of bottle-feeding. They never left. This was fine at our original, very humble abode. Third-hand house, second-hand furniture, shedding, destruction and allergies be damned, Hamish was entertaining and Zoe, well, she’s lucky she arrived at the same time as her brother.  Crinkle a piece of paper and there was Hamish, paws on the back of the nearest chair, waiting for you to throw it across the room so he could bring it back and repeat his performance. Crinkle anything and unless Hammy was in the middle of some litter box business, he’d be by your side in a split second. It was so entertaining that we didn’t even ship Hamish out the time he shredded most of my extremities when I tried to catch him the first time he ever slipped outside. Valuable life lesson learned on this occasion. Never try to grab a freaked out cat, who has just spent a half hour hiding in a lilac bush surrounded by catnip. It won’t end well.  So if I didn’t have a problem spending a week hooked up to a penicillin pump to rid myself of cat scratch fever, why do I have a problem with Hamish now. Three reasons, new house, new furniture and asthma. Everything’s fine until someone loses his breath. We tried the cats in the basement but the furnace just blew the dander and fur around. So our only recourse was to move them to the garage for the winter. In the summer, each cat has claimed a porch so they can catch us coming and going and despite their advanced ages, they prefer to sleep outside. Thinking ahead, we saved the cats’ two favourite antique armchairs when we moved and brought them to the new place. They sit on both sides of the woodstove in the garage, which is a lot cozier than our house in the winter. Problem is, the woodstove requires wood, lots of wood, next year’s wood.  So because loyalty is a quality Mare and I both admire and these cats have been nothing but loyal, we burned almost three cords of wood last winter to heat two cats. Not marginal wood mind you, three cords of perfectly seasoned red oak with a little birch thrown in for quick heat and a bed of coals. Needless to say, those three cords of wood would have gone a long way towards an easy cutting season for yours truly. Now, because we’re behind the proverbial 8 ball, a long and bug-bitten spring awaits. But at least the cats were warm. The things we do for our pets. And what would an animal story be without a Mister Rolly update for his many followers. On Sunday, we went out for a hike and when we came home there was a brown lump of something sitting on the floor in the kitchen. The teeth marks in it meant a scrunched up face with a “yuck” on the lips wasn’t required. On closer inspection it seems as though Mister’s sweet tooth was acting up. He’d made his way into a cupboard, found a bag of brown sugar, eaten all the soft stuff and ended up with a big hard lump to contend with. When confronted, Rolly, as usual, did the walk of shame to his house. We then went to my mother’s to help clean up her storm damage and when we returned and opened the door, there was vomit everywhere. Upon closer inspection it was discovered that Rolly had made his way into another cupboard and worked away at a bag of rolled oats. If he’d wanted porridge for brunch all he had to do was ask. He again did the walk of shame to his house and was locked in. Last Friday, I arrived home, went to the computer and noticed my glasses and Mare’s glasses were on the floor. The laptop also had the screen tipped back almost flat. Mister!!! This time round he’d climbed up on a chair, jumped up on the desk, stood on the keyboard and then on the screen to reach a soup bowl I’d left on the ledge of the desk. Problem was he’d pressed a series of keys, resulting in the screen being reversed to a negative. Unable to see anything, I had to call work and Deb graciously Googled the problem and relayed the solution back to me. I then glanced down to see Rolly standing there wagging his tail. Without saying a word, the tail dropped between his legs and off he went to his kennel. For a second I thought I heard him close the door behind himself. The dog proofing will continue.

Pitch-In community cleanup is Saturday By Bill Freeman

EMC News - Havelock - All this week residents have been pitching in to give the township a fresh spring look and once again local folk are invited to participate in Saturday’s community cleanup day. It is all part of the annual Pitch-In Week campaign which township council has officially endorsed and has supported for a number of years. The municipality supplies free garbage bags and gloves to individuals and groups involved in neighbourhood and street cleanup blitzes. On Saturday, they will host a morning-long cleanup patrol beginning at 8:30 a.m. at the municipal office. There will be refreshments to start courtesy of Tim Hortons and a light lunch afterward. Students from Havelock Belmont Public School as well as members of the 1st Havelock Scouts have been out this week to do their part. Students at Norwood District High School also participated in cleanup activities around the school and community.

Clinic in Peterborough, live in Havelock and are involved in minor hockey and figure skating so the value of small-town community connectedness influenced their decision as much as the chance to grow a business opportunity and bring some new veterinary services to the eastern part of the county. “It’s just nice that everybody knows each other and everybody is kind of involved. We liked that part,” Lemire told the EMC. “We have our kids in hockey and we liked the area and all the infrastructure that’s around it,” he said. Lemire, a long-time goalie himself, was the assistant coach of the Havelock Hawks Junior Tyke team and helps out with Havelock Minor Hockey goalies. Their two sons play hockey, Junior Tyke and Peewee, and their daughter is a figure skater. “I played hockey in Val d’Or. I’ve been involved in it all my life; it’s a passion of mine and I still like to play once in a while,” he said. While living in Waterford, Ontario, Dr. Thompson, a University of Guelph graduate, was working as a locum and Lemire worked for Maple Leaf Foods. “We decided that after we had kids we wanted to be in business,” Lemire said. The couple started looking around in the Peterborough area and the Jackson Creek opportunity arose. “We did a tour, loved it and purchased it,” Lemire said. “It was a location that was a growing location. It was a great opportunity to build that practice from a one vet practice to an almost two-vet practice now.” That was in March, 2011. “We decided that shifting my career, now would be a good time to look at another clinic.”

Fortunes aligned once again and they discovered Norwood Veterinary Services where Dr. Mulkewytch remains an associate with D. Navkaran Bal providing full-time veterinary services. “This is a great little town. We have a great team here and in Jackson Creek. We’re very happy with what we have,” Lemire said. “Dr. Mulkewytch definitely built up a great foundation, we want to piggy back on that and we want to provide the same services we provide at Jackson Creek.” Those services include laser surgery and laser therapy and the Norwood Clinic will offer low

EMC News - Havelock - Township arena staff have received accolades from the Balsillie Family Branch YMCA in Peterborough for their support of the after-school program the YMCA provides to local kids. For the past four years the YMCA’s Havelock outreach program has been able to use the arena and its skates and helmets free of charge for an hour’s worth of skating once a week in January and February. “The use of the arena has been especially important this year as extracurricular activities in schools have been minimal,” says Heather Bebbington, supervisor of after school programs for the Balsillie Family Branch, which is part of the YMCA of Central East Ontario. “The opportunities and experiences our students have had through skating at the community centre I know many will carry with them for the rest of their lives,” Bebbington said in

a letter to council praising staff. There are 34 students registered with the YMCA’s after-school program in Havelock which receives funding from the Ontario Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport. The program runs Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from the end of the school day until 6 p.m. “The focus of our program is providing physical activity, healthy eating, nutrition and wellness education,” Bebbington told the Trent Hills Regional News. “Students have opportunities to participate in a number of activities including sports and games, crafts, cooking, experiments, messy activities, themed weeks [like Minute to Win It, Olympics], homework help and various trips,” she explained. In addition to those daily activities, Bebbington says this year students have gone on a variety of trips including those to Rock and Rope in Peterborough for rock climbing and swimming

The public should benefit from it.” Dr. Thompson and her husband have always been animal lovers and have five cats, a dog and three horses at their Havelock home. “I am not a vet but more on the business side. I really enjoy it. It is so fascinating to see the relationship between vets and their clients. Pets are part of their family and we understand that and we can help them.” For more information on the clinic call 705639-2333.

at the YMCA. Later this month they will try their hand at bowling at Lakeview Bowl. “The program encourages skill building, team building and making good healthy choices for [their] bodies and lives,” she said. “Skating is a great way for our students to not only be active but to have fun while doing so,” Bebbington told council. “Making use of the whole ice surface, students have fun racing other students and staff members and can focus on improving their individual skating ability in areas of balance and motor skills.” By being able to use the community centre’s helmets and skates Bebbington says every child in the program was able to take part, even those who do not have their own equipment. The YMCA hopes it can continue its partnership with the municipality and the community centre.

Life’s final journey, positive planning seminar topic

By Sue Dickens

EMC News - Campbellford - Death and dying are not subjects people want to talk about so the Campbellford Lioness and Lions Clubs are hosting a seminar on the topic. Each year the clubs hold a seminar on what many consider to be difficult subjects to discuss. Last year the event was on prostate awareness, the year before it was about depression. “This year’s health and awareness event is focused on the topic ‘Life’s Final Journey-Positive Planning,’” commented Maureen Dikun, committee chairperson of the event and a member of the Campbellford Lioness Club. “While some people prepare for their death in a positive and timely manner, it is evident that many are totally unprepared,” she said.

Dikun distributed a letter to church groups and local service clubs which she put together with information about the upcoming seminar to encourage people to attend. “The truth is making decisions and wishes early brings peace of mind and helps those who care, when and if there is a need,” she added. Special guest speakers will offer their thoughts on the topic, to open a dialogue on the subject including Dr. Celeste Collins, a family physician here in Trent Hills and chief of staff at Campbellford Memorial Hospital. “We want to make people aware and just open the discussion for many people on planning for death and the time period before dying,” Dr. Collins told Trent Hills Regional News. “We just find it is a very difficult subject for people

to talk about, especially with their families and the goal is to open the discussion and give them the knowledge they need as to how to approach it in a non-morbid way,” she added. Dr. Collins pointed out that an open dialogue can help people “understand you can make it easy on yourself and your loved one(s) if you plan.” Her talk will also include the people who are the decision makers when it comes to the final period of their loved one’s life. “If you are are not available or don’t have a good relationship with siblings etc., it can make it a very difficult job to do and be very trying for everybody … so if we can get people to think about it at least everybody is on the same page,” she said. Other speakers at the health awareness event include Chrystalla Chew, co-ordinator at Palliative

Care Campbellford; Gwen Cleveland, co-ordinator at The Bridge Hospice, Warkworth; Paul Smith, lawyer, Q.C.; and Kevin Weaver, funeral director, Weaver Family Funeral Homes. “Our aim is to open discussion and provide pertinent information and answers to difficult questions,” said Dikun, who noted this is part of the “Speak Up” campaign which promotes the importance of having these conversations about advance health-care decisions. The campaign is an initiative of the Canadian Hospice Palliative Care Association. There will be an opportunity for questions after the presentation. There is no admission charge for the event which takes place on Tuesday, May 14, at 7:30 p.m. at Campbellford District High School.

Best Laid Plans. The books shortlisted for the 2013 Leacock Medal for humour writing include his latest novel Up and Down. Released in September 2012 it was instantly acclaimed by the Globe and Mail as a Canadian Fiction Best Seller. Known for his satirical novels of Canadian politics, his presence at the spring venue here is expected to result in quick ticket sales so those interested in attending are asked to get book early, no pun intended. “Some of our members read some of his books before. We’re delighted with his sense of humour,” commented Stephens. Jane Osmond, who along with Gwen Sherry, are part of the original group that started Trent Hills Grannies for Africa here six years ago, agree. “He’s totally delightful and has a wonderful sense of humour,” said Osmond. The Trent Hills Grannies for Africa members are part of a nation-wide movement affiliated with the Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign which supports the Stephen Lewis Foundation, which, in turn, helps to sustain communities in subSaharan Africa working hard to turn the tide of the AIDS pandemic. This will be the 7th season of fund raising for the Trent Hills Grannies for Africa. For Stephens, planning the event brings back memories of the recent trips to Africa with her husband Dr. Bob Stephens; they have

been part of Reach out To Africa, a Christian registered Canadian charity, humanitarian organization dedicated to providing financial and logistical aid to communities and vulnerable children of southern Africa. “Our son lives there and runs an NGO [non-governmental organization] there,” commented Stephens. They travelled there in 2008 and again in 2009. “The Trent Hills Grannies for Africa is a group I have always wanted to be part of but until this year I haven’t had time. Now I can,” said Stephens. She talked about the importance of helping African grandmothers, “to support them in caring for many AIDS children.” The Trent Hills group has about 16 members who will be working hard to make their spring fund raiser a success. It takes place Wednesday, May 1, at 7 p.m. in the Gathering Room of St. Paul’s United Church, Warkworth. This is the second year the group has held its fund raising in the village. It has been held in Campbellord for years. Tickets are $12 and include a dessert, tea or coffee. Tickets are available at Metaphorhome, Warkworth, and Kerr’s Corner Books, Campbellford, or at the door, if there are any remaining. For more information call 705-924-2292.

Clostridium difficile outbreak, no restrictions for hospital visitors at this time

EMC News - Campbellford - An outbreak of clostridium difficile (C. difficile) has been identified at Campbellford Memorial Hospital (CMH). A press release was issued on April 19 at 12:44 p.m. explaining that C. difficile is a bacteria found in the human bowel which can cause diarrhea and is one of the most common infections in hospitals, health-care facilities and in the broader community. Individuals most at risk include those who have taken antibiotics in the past two months, are older than 65 years of age, and have underlying illnesses and multiple or prolonged hospital stays. Like other hospitals across the country, Campbellford Memorial Hospital has been monitoring for the presence of C. difficile among its patients for some time now, stated the press release. The hospital has been following best practices recommended by the

Provincial Infectious Diseases Advisory Committee (PIDAC), it stated. This includes best practices in the areas of patient accommodation, patient contact precautions, hand hygiene, environmental cleaning, visitors, patient transfer and patient discharge, such as: having housekeeping staffing levels consistent with provincial guidelines; doublecleaning patient rooms and following other cleaning protocols where C. difficile is present in a patient; assigning dedicated nursing care to patients in isolation with C. difficile; and being vigilant in enforcing proper hand-washing among all hospital personnel, patients and hospital visitors. Hand wash stations are installed at the entrance to the hospital, near elevators and in all patient care areas to prevent the spread of infection. Ongoing education is provided to staff, visitors and patients on the im-

portance of this practice. Good hand hygiene practices are also shared with patients and their families upon discharge from the hospital, stated the release. Outbreak warnings have been posted at entrances to the first floor. Monitoring is done of any patients who develop new onset of diarrhea

and they will be placed on contact precautions pending lab confirmation of C. difficile. The hospital press release states that CMH remains fully operational, with programs and services across the hospital unaffected. The hospital expects all visitors to be diligent in practising infection

prevention and control practices including hand hygiene when visiting the hospital at any time. Frequent hand washing, particularly before and after patient contact, is mandatory and vital to reducing health care-associated infections. Updates will be provided as information changes.

Trent Hills featured in Doors Open tour By Bill Freeman

EMC News - Trent Hills - Four Trent Hills venues will play a prominent role in the entertainingly diverse Doors Open celebration June 1 and 2. The Aron Theatre, the old-time Riverside Dance Pavilion in Hastings and Warkworth’s Schoolhouse Gardens and the Memorial Community Centre will open

their doors for the free public event which features 26 cultural and heritage venues across Northumberland. The famous 1906 Roseneath Carousel in neighbouring Roseneath and its 1934 Wurlitzer organ will also be part of this first-ever countywide event that will draw visitors to communities across the region where they can explore theatres, heritage buildings, cinemas, gardens, churches and museums. Many of the sites will feature ongoing activities and displays created especially for Doors Open like those at the former Hastings dance pavilion, now an auction hall, which will include a series of exhibits on the history of dance, dance lessons as well as a free evening dance featuring the Potter Band, the first band to play at the pavilion in 1939. “It’s a pretty unique thing,” says Hastings resident Skye Morrison, a member of the Trent Hills Heritage Committee which is involved in organizing Doors Open. Northumberland is rather distinctive in that each of its seven municipalities has heritage committees and each committee has found venues willing to participate in Doors Open. The Hastings Historical Society is also involved in the Riverside Pavilion open house. “They’re very excited,” Morrison said of the Potter Band. “We’re going to try and film it and they’re going to bring dancers.” She calls the idea of a free dance (8:30 p.m. to midnight) “pretty spectacular.” “The whole thing is free,” she

stressed. There will be a cash bar open during the evening dance. “With over 25 sites, some not previously open to the public, this event provides a unique opportunity for visitors to get up close and personal with Northumberland’s heritage,” says Doors Open Northumberland chair Dave Cutler. The special displays and activities will “enhance the experience,” Cutler says. Northumberland’s “heritage assets are important, they give each of the seven municipalities a unique sense of place, and they contribute to the local economy by attracting tourists and investors,” he adds. Visitors to Warkworth’s Memorial Community Hall, which itself was built in 1922, can browse an exhibition celebrating the life of renowned local historical artist, J.D. Kelly. Artist and architect Clive Russell has created a visual history of Kelly to “raise awareness of Kelly’s contribution to our understanding of Canadian history. Also among destinations is the restored 1890s bar room of the former Oriental Hotel in Castleton which is now a private home and the gracious lakeside shingle summer home commissioned by artist Gerald Hayward in 1902 that is now the Victoria Inn in Gore’s Landing. Doors Open Northumberland is collaboration between Northumberland County Tourism and the Northumberland Heritage Alliance. Trent Hills Regional News is one of the event’s media partners. In addition to the Doors Open

Scouts seeking tree donations


EMC News - Hastings - The 1st Hastings Scouts will be canvassing the village April 29 inviting residents to support their involvement in a big tree-planting venture near Norwood. The Hastings Scouts along with other Kawartha Waterways members will be part of a group planting trees in an area just south of Norwood on May 4. Each youth will plant 25 trees and would be grateful to any support their receive during their door-to-door campaign Monday. “With your donation, you are helping the next generation of Canadians to plant the next generation of trees,” says Hastings Scout leader MJ Stevenson. The donations will stay within the 1st Hastings Scouts with 30 per cent going to the World Brotherhood fund and the Scoutrees program, Stevenson says. Stevenson says the donations “not only support an excellent program that helps teach each

youth a respect for nature and the importance of stopping climate change,” they will “plant trees to help offset carbon.” Because Scouts Canada is a volunteer-based program all the planting is done as part of the Scoutrees program. Scoutrees has evolved from the Trees for Canada program with a portion of the funds going into the Scout Brotherhood Fund which is used to support projects in developing countries. This spring, 16,000 Scouts will plant 200,000 trees across Canada bringing the total number of trees planted since 1972 to more than 80 million. If you want to support the 1st Hastings Scouts and aren’t at home when youngsters visit looking for pledges you can call Stevenson at 705-696-2296. “We’d like to thank the community for their generous support,” Stevenson said.

Second wave of planting to deter geese By Bill Freeman

EMC News - Hastings - A second wave of planting along the south shore of the Trent River in Hastings will take place this spring and volunteers hope the swarms of geese take note. Last year students from the Campbellford District Environmental Club with staff from the Lower Trent Conservation Authority and volunteers from the Hastings Revitalization Association planted 119 native shrubs and 54 potted Joe Pye weeds along a stretch of parkland east of the Hastings Village Marina in a first step toward naturalizing the shoreline and make it less inviting for geese.

In phase two, volunteers will plant 1,700 native wildflowers. Last spring’s planting seems to have had a positive impact so far, says Deb Cooper who championed the project through the HRA which set aside $500 to purchase plants but was pleased to discover that CDHS had won Agrium’s Caring for our Watersheds contest with a project on the importance of planting native trees. “I’ve seen them on the other side but haven’t seen them nest in that area,” Cooper said. The plan is to eventually have a natural “buffer and coverage” to the edge of

the water all along the south shore extending beyond the beach. A successful south shore project could provide ideas on how to deter geese from the north shore. The HRA has no plans to tackle the north shore which poses different challenges. “If they can’t go to the south side we’ll have twice as much on the north,” said Tony Tuit whose home fronts the north shore. He says he has counted almost 200 geese on the north shore at one time. “The north shore will be slimed completely and this is where visitors come,” Tuit said.

“We have no plans for the north shore but will continue to work away at the south,” HRA executive Steve Roddy said. “I understand what you’re saying. The HRA can’t take on the world; we have to pick our battles. Right now Deb is going a good job on the south.” “The north shore is complicated because it has a stone wall; at this point it’s hard to naturalize that,” said Cooper who reminded members that the HRA is simply volunteering on the south shore. “We just happened to speak at the right time and lucked into some money [with] an organization willing to do a demonstration. It’s technically not our

project,” she said. “You can’t re-naturalize that [north] shore because of the stone so planting may not be the idea.” Geese deterrent spray might be an option, Cooper said, but they are expensive. “I think it’s important for us to wait and see how effective what we’re doing on the south shore is,” Roger Warren said. “If it turns out it works very well then we have some type of model at least to look at the north.” “It could be quite simple after we see the experience from the south side,” Warren said.

Flood watch issued from Cordova Lake to the Trent

By Judy Backus

EMC News - Marmora - The lengthy April 18 meeting of the Crowe Valley Conservation Authority included a number of items, one of them being an in camera session. Once it was over and the open portion of the meeting again under way, board chair Barry Rand presented a motion which carried. It read, “Whereas the Board of the Crowe Valley Conservation Authority authorized the Strategic Sub-Committee to pursue possible Service Agreements with neighbouring Municipalities and Conservation Authorities, therefore be it resolved that the Strategic Sub-Committee (Ron Gerow, Chair, Hector Macmillan, Sandy Fraser and CVCA Chair Barry Rand) be authorized to develop a detailed services agreement with Quinte Conservation for consideration by the CVCA Board.” The general manager’s report fol-

lowed, with Tim Pidduck commenting on the water levels and flow conditions throughout the watershed, saying they had increased considerably over the past week or two and that, coupled with the forecast of rain, had resulted in a flood watch (one step down from a flood warning) being issued “from Cordova Lake to the Trent River system.” In relation to the decision to pursue options with Quinte Conservation, Pidduck said that would result in a further reduction in staff morale “and many may feel they have no option but to initiate the search for employment options elsewhere.” He continued, saying that tension was high, and asked the board “to consider the continued efficient functioning of this watershed and to support me in reassuring the staff before I am faced with a landslide of resignations.” He concluded, saying, “My goal is to

keep the Crowe running as smoothly and efficiently as possible and I ask the board to support me in this endeavour.” Rand responded that a staff meeting was scheduled following the board meeting at which time staff would be “brought up to speed” on the current situation, and “also to recognize the excellent work that has been done, at least over the past nine months, but also over the past years.” He referred to challenging times and said the board would do its best to “resolve these issues with dispatch.” A special project at the Gut Conservation Area was discussed, that being to have a group of 18 students from Norwood District High School, under the guidance of two teachers, work on the property over the course of a few days to replace the steps, add a rail to the barrier, clear the trails and replace the current outhouse. Money for the much-needed

work will be available in part through the completed sale of a sawmill by CVCA, along with additional funding, which is currently being sought. The matter of liability relating to the work was mentioned, with assurances given that adequate insurance would be in place. Two representatives of the Belmont Lake Cottage Association, Wayne Alexander and Peter White, attended the meeting anxious to hear what plans were in place for the Belmont dam in light of low rainfall and the extremely low water levels experienced on Belmont Lake the previous year. An investigation indicated that although there was nothing structurally wrong with the dam, seepage was taking place. Pidduck presented two options to the board, with the first representing a shortterm (two to three years under normal conditions) and less costly solution.

That involved sealing the two end bays with a membrane along with placing sand bags at the base of the bays at an estimated cost of $15,000. The second choice involves an expenditure of $150,000 and would see stop logs installed, then permanently anchored to the sill. Pidduck explained, “In order to do that, you have to de-water the bay, and in order to do that, you have to build a coffer dam.” It has been suggested that a floating coffer dam, which could be moved from bay to bay, would work to seal off one bay at a time. Although no decision was made as to which option should be pursued, board members indicated they wanted staff to keep a close watch on the situation at the beginning of June, and if warranted, make sure there was enough lead time to have the company (ODS) in to proceed with option one.

Preserving built heritage valuable to communities By Bill Freeman

EMC News - Peterborough - Preserving built heritage should be encouraged and applauded, says Barb McIntosh the newly appointed president of the Peterborough Historical Society. As one of her ďŹ rst ofďŹ cial duties McIntosh welcomed guests to the Societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual heritage awards at the Hutchinson House Museum where six awards were presented. The awards honour individuals and organizations that have made signiďŹ cant contributions to heritage preservation and promotion in Peterborough and the surrounding area. McIntosh is â&#x20AC;&#x153;particularly pleasedâ&#x20AC;? by the George Cox Award and the category that recognizes the â&#x20AC;&#x153;sympathetic redesign or sensitive new construction that respects the existing character of signiďŹ cant cultural resourcesâ&#x20AC;? and the new Martha Kidd Award, to be presented next year, for outstanding work in the preservation of local built heritage.

That George Cox Award was won by the Signum Corporation for its exterior renovation of 420 George Street North in the heart of downtown Peterborough. The façade of the nineteenth century building was upgraded and renovated to meet â&#x20AC;&#x153;todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s standards and tastes without losing the signiďŹ cant architectural features that contribute to the overall heritage streetscape.â&#x20AC;? Categories such as these laud the work of private owners and heritage builders, says McIntosh, which should be encouraged. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is the way weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to be able to preserve the look and feel of some of our nineteenth century build-

ings,â&#x20AC;? McIntosh told the EMC. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expect people to want to set up a business in something thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really outdated, they need to be upgraded, they need to meet code. It has to be a style that upscale tenants want to live in.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the way weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to keep the main street vibrant if you have really good renovations of older architecture,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d really like to see that category expanded. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a really valuable one in the mix.â&#x20AC;?

That, and the proximity of the Cobourg location sealed the Brighton clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fate. But the news came as a shock to the local membership. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It sure is a sad day to hear of the Brighton â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Yâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; closing,â&#x20AC;? said club member Sharon Caswell. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All of us who work out there are truly devastated for everyone involved.â&#x20AC;? YMCA ofďŹ cials say the Brighton staff will be offered job opportunities at other centres. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For sure we will be working with the management teams at both the Cobourg YMCA and the Quinte YMCA with regards to employment and volunteer opportunities for our staff and volunteers over the next few months,â&#x20AC;? said Kirkpatrick. As well, the Brighton â&#x20AC;&#x153;members are assured seamless transfer to Quinte West YMCA or to the Cobourg YMCA. Provisions will also be made to reimburse any unused portion of membership fees, if requested.â&#x20AC;? But, for now, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s business as usual, at least until October. The decision to vacate the Brighton Health Services Centre wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t affect the bottom line, at least in the short term, says board treasurer Bruce Davis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are obviously disappointed with the YMCAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But we are conďŹ dent that we will attract a new tenant or tenants within that time.â&#x20AC;?

Through discussions with partners, it has become clear that there is no ďŹ nancial viability in continuing on with the operation and we sincerely regret the impact that this decision will have in limiting health and wellness options within the Brighton community.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Over the last ten years the municipality has invested more than $250,000 to ensure sustainability of the local YMCA,â&#x20AC;? said a municipal media release, also delivered last week. Notably, the municipal contribution included $60,000 in startup costs and $10,000 for marketing support. This year, YMCA ofďŹ cials proposed a new agreement: $200,000 from municipal coffers over ďŹ ve years to assure ďŹ nancial sustainability. As part of the new deal, the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Yâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; would invest half in new, updated equipment over the term of the lease. The last capital investment at the Brighton facility occurred in 2009. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Council felt it could not enter into any further long-term commitments but would continue to work with the YMCA and consider support on a year-to-year basis,â&#x20AC;? said Mayor Mark Walas. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is regrettable that this ďŹ nancial assistance, along with membership fees, was not enough to make the operation self-sufďŹ cient.â&#x20AC;?

Norwood goalie signs with Wings By Bill Freeman

EMC Sports - Norwood Norwood James Gang Senior B goalie Angus Dineley has signed on with the National Lacrosse League’s Philadelphia Wings as they gear up for playoff action. The surprising move leading up to the Canadian Lacrosse League’s Creator’s Cup championship weekend meant that Dineley’s Toronto Shooting Stars team had to do some juggling to fill the gap left by the goalie with the league’s best goals against average. One of the Shooting Stars goalies is Craig Robertson, another James Gang stalwart.

Dineley had a 6 - 2 record with the Shooting Stars this season and 9.57 goals against average. He backed up veteran Wings starter goalie Brandon Miller during their 10 - 9 overtime win April 13 over the Toronto Rock at the Wells Fargo Centre. Last year with the James Gang Dineley posted an 8 - 1 record with an 8.84 goals against average, fourth best in the OLA Senior B loop. Teammate Cole Murray led the league with a 5.52 goals against average in seven games. Dineley was a member of Team Canada’s silver medal winning team at the 2010 world

championship in Manchester, England. He played NCAA field lacrosse with the Canisius College Griffins and in Canada with the University of Toronto Blues To make room for Dineley, Philadelphia released goalie Kevin Crosswell who was then signed by the Durham Turf Dogs of the CLAX who are set to play the Shooting Stars in one half of the Creator’s Cup championship weekend semi-final adding a nice touch of drama to a tough regional match-up.

Women’s three-pitch coming to Norwood

By Bill Freeman

EMC Sports - Norwood - Women interested in playing three-pitch softball this summer can do so in Norwood. A planned 15-week Monday night league is in the works with the first pitch set to be thrown May 27. Organizer Sarah Rubin of Campbellford hopes they’ll be able to play double-headers and that women missing the fun of team three-pitch will sign up. They held a registration in Norwood last Friday night and will continue to take registrations by telephone. There is even a Norwood Women’s Softball Facebook page. “Hopefully we’ll get four teams; if we get a larger turnout we could possibly have two nights,” she said. The league is “open for sponsors”; the $60 registration fee should provide enough money for bases and balls. The 15-week schedule will wrap with a tournament. For more information or to sign up call 705-772-3885.

Subban made 43 saves in the loss while Graovac returned to record a goal and an assist, but Colts centre Zach Hall led all scorers with three points, including an assist on the game winner to lead Barrie to the win. The Bulls opened the scoring in the first period when Joseph Cramarossa was left wide open at the side of the net to bury his fifth of the play-offs, but the lead was short-lived. Hall responded just over two minutes later on the powerplay, and before the period was up Barrie struck again. Mitchell Theoret scored his OHL-leading tenth goal with 1:30 left in the first period, and Barrie opened the second period with a 2 - 1 lead over the visiting Bulls. Graovac was there to answer in the second period, taking a pass on the rush to knot the score at 2 - 2, but Barrie was again able to respond, scoring twice more in the period to give them a 4 - 2 lead with 12:36 left in the second period. The Bulls showed some resolve, however, with Garett Hooey and Jake Cardwell scoring 35 seconds apart, and after a scoreless third period the two teams headed to overtime.

EMC Sports – Belleville - The Belleville Bulls face an uphill battle in their Eastern Conference final matchup with the Barrie Colts, and with the team trailing 2-1 in their best-of-seven series the stakes have never been higher. After the Bulls clinched the series opener with a slim 3 - 2 win in game one on the back of two goals from Austen Brassard, Belleville had a chance to take a 2 - 0 lead on home ice on Saturday, April 20, but faltered in a 5 - 0 blowout loss. Despite outshooting the Colts, the Bulls simply couldn’t beat Barrie goaltender Mathias Niederberger, who made 32 saves for his second shutout of the play-offs. The Bulls were missing leading scorer Tyler Graovac with an upper body injury, and it showed. Despite the high shot total, quality scoring opportunities were few and far between for the top-seeded Bulls, and the Colts were dominant on puck possession at various times throughout the game. Meanwhile, on the defensive end, Malcolm Subban allowed five goals on 23 shots, and didn’t return for the third period after being replaced by Charlie Graham. The Bulls just couldn’t stop Winnipeg Jets NHL draft selection Mark Scheifele, who scored the game’s first two goals and assisted on another for three points on the night. Scheifele leads all play-off scorers with seven goals and 15 assists through 11 games. “With the energy that was in the building tonight, disappointing to go through a night like we did,” Bulls head coach and GM George Burnett said during a press conference following the game. “They were very opportunistic at the mistakes that we made; they capitalized.” With the series tied 1 - 1, action shifted to Barrie for game three on Monday night, where the Bulls overcame a two-goal second-period deficit but couldn’t overcome Anthony

Golden day for Knights badminton players By Bill Freeman

EMC Sports - Norwood - For the fourth year in a row Norwood District High School will have badminton players at the all-Ontario (OFSAA) high school championships. The senior Knights lady’s pair of Emma Smith and Alana Reed struck gold at the COSSA finals in Haliburton along with the mixed duo of Jordan Burtt and Jenna Baptie to advance to the provincial championship in Chatham next month. The NDHS senior squad placed second overall in team points. Both senior pairs teams extended their undefeated streak with Smith and Reed winning gold with 21 - 18, 21 - 9 scores and Burtt and Baptie recording 21 - 12, 21 - 10 victories. The top 34 teams in Ontario will be in Chatham. At the COSSA junior championships in Brighton the mixed pairs of Braden Thompson and Shannon Bellamy and Mike Burtt and Kelen McIvor placed first and second, a first for the junior squad. The men’s doubles team of Brent Smith and Jacob Bennett placed fourth. The Junior Knights placed third overall. Smith won COSSA gold as a junior last year and Reed also struck gold in 2012 with teammate Jenna Baptie in the senior pairs. Reed and Baptie also competed in last year’s Ontario Winter Games. “They’re very good under pressure,” coach Jeff Winslow said of Reed and Smith. “When games are close that’s when Alanna performs best.” Burtt and Baptie weren’t really tested at COSSA, Winslow said. “They’re just very focused and that’s one of the reasons I put them together; they’re two of the most experienced players on the team.” “Emma and Alana complement each other because both are easygoing and relaxed but at the same time they are very competitive, both move very well and both hit very hard,” said Winslow. The pair also “clears from back line to back line which in women’s doubles is very important.” Reed and Smith can both play the front and back of the net well which rounds out their game. “They knew they’d be tested but they were well-prepared.”

OFSAA is a “whole different level of badminton,” Winslow said adding that Norwood players have always “held their own” on the provincial stage. Reed and Baptie were at OFSAA last year and that experience should prove handy, their coach says. “I think they’ll do a little better from their experience and knowing what to expect.” Also in senior COSSA play Dan and Jared Widdis placed fourth and Sam Gerow and Travis Bennett placed sixth. Hannah Angermann placed seventh, the highest singles finish in school history. The mixed pairs team of Travis Stark and Vanessa Crowley also placed seventh.

She competed at the Central Ontario Secondary School Association Junior Badminton championship held in Brighton last week. Playing three games, winning one, she came home in fifth spot, but for Jehle it was an experience she will never forget. This was her first time competing at that level, having placed fourth in the Junior Kawartha Badminton championship played in Haliburton.

“There were a lot of different strategies that other players were using,” she commented. “A lot of the other players were pretty good … a lot had more experience than I did,” she added. Competing in the Junior Ladies Singles, Jehle was up against players from several area high schools. Players came from Nicholson Catholic College from Belleville, Holy Cross and St. Peter Secondary School in Peterborough, Haliburton Highlands Secondary School, Cobourg East, Fenelon Falls Secondary School, Port Hope High School, Trenton High School, East Northumberland Secondary School (ENSS) and I.E. Weldon Secondary School in Lindsay. Rachelle Box of ENSS came first in the Junior Ladies Singles. “Rachelle killed me on the courts,” admitted Jehle, noting the win was well deserved. Jehle began playing badminton when she was in Grade7 and hasn’t looked back. It’s a sport she enjoys for many reasons. “Personally I find I am a lot better at individual sports,” she commented, explaining why she decided to participate in the singles category. “I like sports in general and play badminton, soccer, basketball, volleyball and track and field,” she told Trent Hills Regional News. She says soccer is her favourite sport and she’s looking forward to this

season. She plans on competing in badminton again next year. When she is not participating in sports she likes to “hang out with friends and play my guitar.” CDHS recently hosted the Senior Kawartha Badminton championship where Alana Reed and Emma Smith took first place in the women’s doubles.

Long-time coach receives sports honour award By Bill Freeman

EMC Sports - Norwood - He’s coached five Norwood Hornets teams to OMHA titles with another in Peterborough and now Greg Hartwick can add the prestigious Norwood District Minor Sports President’s Honour Award to his collection. The long-time coach and NDMS executive is the first second generation recipient of the award joining his late father Joe on the Wall of Honour at the Asphodel-Norwood Community Centre. Hartwick was honoured during the minor sports awards celebration Sunday afternoon. Hartwick says his father instilled in him a love of hockey and was the role model he looked up to as he embarked on a coaching career that began while he was playing juvenile hockey in Norwood. “I’d like to think that I copied what he did, I think I have, I hope I have,” he told the Trent Hills Regional News after the ceremony. “The coaching is something that came natural to me. I always enjoyed it and still do.” NDMS executive Sean Elliott called Hartwick the “Scotty Bowman of Norwood” while making the presentation. Hartwick, twice president of the minor hockey association, has guided Norwood Hornets teams to eight OMHA finals with five titles, including a memorable midget three-peat. He also coached the Peterborough Bantam Petes to an OMHA “AAA” title in 1990 and spent time behind the bench of the Junior C Lakefield Chiefs before returning to Norwood. He is “unrivalled in success for our organization,” said Elliott. “I think it’s safe to say that he is the organization’s leader in games won as a head coach.” “His dedication to coaching is illustrated by the numerous hours spent planning practices, going to games and tournaments, putting together his yearbooks that for decades have been given out to his teams outlining their time together.” Hartwick has also taken midget teams to Europe three times and organized trips to Halifax, Buffalo and Lake Placid.

As people get older, changes in their bodies can affect the health of their teeth and gums. Dry mouth is a common problem in seniors. It can result from the aging process itself, from use of certain medications and as a side-effect of some diseases. With less saliva to flush food and acids away, tooth decay can occur. Tooth decay can also emerge around old fillings. Because gums naturally begin to recede as people age, more of a tooth’s root is exposed, leading to an increased chance of root decay, or cavities in the root.

EMC Sports - Norwood - Mack O’Brien, a key member of the Norwood James Gang Senior B lacrosse team, has won a major Canadian Lacrosse League (CLAX) award. O’Brien, the third leading scorer for the Toronto Shooting Stars, was named Transition Player of the Year as part of the Creator’s Cup championship weekend in Six Nations. O’Brien notched 26 goals and added 14 as-

sists for the second-place Shooting Stars to earn first team all-star honour. He was the tenth leading goal scorer in the CLAX and one of seven James Gang players on the Toronto roster this season. “Mack had a tremendous impact on our team on and off the floor,” Shooting Stars head coach and general manager Glen Clark said. “He is a leader and a tireless worker. He was a threat to

create transition opportunities every time he was on the floor and he did it without neglecting his defensive responsibilities.” O’Brien spent his rookie CLAX season with the Oshawa Machine. His James Gang teammate Aaron Grayson led the team in scoring with 16 goals and 17 assists. O’Brien helped the Shooting Stars reach the Creator’s Cup final notching two goals and adding three assists in their 11 - 10 semi-final overtime win against the Durham Turf Dogs. Grayson was the overtime hero notching the game winner 7:18 into extra time; it was his second goal of the night. Toronto played the Iroquois Ironmen in the final and were edged 14 11. The Ironmen reached the final with a 16 - 15 overtime win over the firstplace Niagara Lock Monsters. O’Brien and Grayson each scored twice in the final. O’Brien scored 14 goals and had 10 assists for the James Gang in 2012. In 2010 he scored 34 times in 24 games.

To find problems before they get out of hand, regular dental appointments are essential. For patients who wear dentures, regular check-ups can identify any problems in the condition of the dentures or in the gums around the dentures, where inflammation and irritation can occur.

“The countless hours planning, raising money and then leading these European tours is a source of great pride for our organization,” said Elliot. When the 2013 Euro tour was cancelled the fund raising was turned into a positive when Hartwick spearheaded the installation of a children’s mini stick rink in the upper level of the Community Centre. Hartwick also organized two visits by the Montreal Canadiens alumni team to Norwood, a dream come true for the lifelong Habs fan. “It’s nice to see a good number of [former players] coaching too,” says Hartwick. “Most of these kids have gone on to pretty good things after leaving minor hockey. Some stay in the community and even those that leave stay involved in hockey.” He is proud to follow his father’s footsteps and remembers the “car-pooling” before every game and practice. “We never went straight to the rink.” “I’ve always found coaching interesting. It’s kind of a way to participate and give something back more so than I did when I was a player.”

EMC Sports - Norwood - It was a razzle dazzling night for the Norwood District Skating Club as they handed out trophies and honours and celebrated another successful year during their sixteenth annual awards gala in the Asphodel-Norwood Community Centre’s Millennium Room. “We had a great time and a great season,” Cindy Chamberlain, test chair of the 64-member club said while recognizing the executive, coaches Leanne Decker, Bernadette Vanderhorst, Jessica Moore and Kyle Stickwood as well as the corps of 13 eager program assistants. “We appreciate all that you do to support them and help them learn to skate,” Chamberlain said of the intermediate and senior skaters who assist the coaching staff. “It’s a wonderful thing to be able to help them when they need to learn to get up on their own and down on their own and turn and spin.” Club skaters did well at competitions this season. Makaya Dafoe won gold at the Eastern Ontario Special Olympics and Taylor Pedersen skated to bronze at the Prince Edward County Future Stars meet. There was success at the Toni Carr Memorial Interclub, with bronze medal for team elements by Eliza Buchanan, Hailey McNiece, Marisha Thompson and Ashley Vanderhorst; the quartet of Annika and Alexa Vanderhorst, Makaya and Taylor won gold for team spins and Makaya, Taylor and Alexa teamed up to win gold in the team elements. Receiving gold certificates for the Canskate Challenge were Bella Andreolli, Eliza Buchanan, Laura Cassidy-Lobb, Karina Fioritti, Hailey McNiece, Mackenzie Towns and Skye Towns. With retirements from executive, Chamberlain says the club is “desperately looking” for new people to replace outgoing volunteers. She invited parents to attend the club’s annual general meeting May 14 (7:30 p.m.) at the Norwood Fire Station. “Those positions need to be filled so we can continue to provide the level of programming your children have enjoyed,” she said. The club also honoured Cornergate Foodland for sponsorship of the Razzle Dazzle skating carnival featuring guest skaters Brad May and Tessa Bonhomme. Receiving awards were: Cathy Ireland Memorial Award (most enthusiastic skater) - Ethan Chaney, Canskate; Sam Neveu, Senior NDSC Most Improved - Margot Walsh, Canskate; Taylor Pedersen, Intermediate; Lauren Bell, Senior BMO Spirit of Skating - Bella Andreolli, Canskater of the Year; Courtney Smith, Mackenzie Towns, Canskate Champions Hodge Family Award, Program Assistant of the Year - Kayla Moore Skate Canada Gold Dance Test certificates - Sam Neveu, Lauren Bell Volunteer of the Year - Christine Pickard.

Former teacher reflects on emotional Boston Marathon By Bill Freeman

EMC News - Salem, Massachusetts “We need to finish what we started,” says John Young, a former Norwood District High School math teacher who was nearing the final mile of the Boston Marathon when the serene and joyous day turned horror-filled tragedy. Young, an elite para-athlete now living in Salem, Massachusetts, was the first male dwarf to compete in the world’s most famous marathon. He and his friend Juli Windsor would have made history as the first dwarves to cross the finish at Copley Square. Young, 48, will be back next year for himself and those who were killed and injured and especially for his wife Sue and son, Owen, who were sitting directly across from one of the bomb sites on Boylston Avenue. Young is an accomplished triathlete but relatively new to long-distance running; he has one marathon and three half-marathons under his belt and is an inspirational figure to aspiring athletes, little people and able-bodied, as his large and loyal following on Twitter and Facebook attests.

He feels “healthier and more energized” since discovering the world of multi-sports five years ago “I feel much younger than I did even ten years ago” Young told the Trent Hills Regional News. The Boston Marathon is every runner’s dream. For Young, the contrasting emotions that day were extraordinary: from the ecstasy of riding the bus with 48 other runners to the start line in Hopkington to the madness hours later and the frantic worries about his family. “Riding on the bus with other runners was an amazing experience. We had a police escort and all the stoplights were set for us,” he said. He started at 9 a.m. with other mobility-impaired runners. “That meant for a while we would be in the lead. For at least 90 minutes there weren’t many other runners; it was so exciting having hundreds of fans seemingly cheering just for me. “Once the race was stopped I [was in] in a funk wondering how what seemed like an amazing day in my life could have changed so quickly. But it didn’t take long for all of us who were

running to say we’ll be back in 2014. We need to finish what we started. “Sue and Owen witnessed the blasts so they’re struggling as well; Owen especially wonders why anyone would want to hurt innocent friends and family watching the marathon. Things are getting better but it will take time.” The whole thing was “scary,” he says. When he found out what had happened he was “dazed for a minute.”

Former NDHS math teacher John Young was just about to enter the final mile of the Boston Marathon when the bombs went off. He is the first male dwarf to compete in the famous race.

He had his cell phone and got a message from Sue saying they were all right. “She was crying telling me what had happened but that both were okay. I told her to leave the city as quickly as possible and I’d be home as quickly as I could.” “I walked for a while until a friend contacted me and was able to pick me up and get me out,” he said. “The ‘shelter in place’ situation was scary as well.

But Agricultural Society President Jason Detlor says there remains a lot of confusion around the annual show, display and sale of car parts and related memorabilia after a decision was made by organizers last year to move the event to a larger site. That’s when the Stirling Agricultural Society stepped in. Detlor says news of the move came as a surprise to many, including the SAS, and did not involve any consultation with vendors. Many, he adds, were strongly committed to the local venue and the significant and predictable crowds experienced here over the course of 40 years. “We still have people calling to see if we’re still going,” Detlor says of the market that was first held in Spring Brook 43 years ago, “and we’re definitely going. We want people to know this is still an annual event in Stirling.” With 520 sites booked for the weekend of May 4 and 5, Detlor says crowds are again expected to reach several thousand.

At the time of the announcement, increased parking and a larger show site were cited as reasons for the move. But the local agricultural society then responded to vendor concerns by providing a venue in Stirling and continuing the show here while others agreed to pull up stakes and move to the Lindsay fairgrounds on the same weekend. Organizers here are confident that, with the support shown by vendors this year, the crowds will return to the Stirling fairgrounds on the first weekend in May.

EMC News - Tweed - Tweed Music Festivals Inc., producers of the annual “Tweed Tribute To Elvis Festival,” are very pleased to announce their Celebrate Ontario 2013 application has been successful. The Ontario government, through the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport, is providing $20,800 in support of the festival this year. TMF President Jim Keniston commented that “the Ontario government is committed to building a strong economy and creating jobs in communities across the province.” The local festival and associated events give Ontario families and visitors another reason to explore this wonderful region. By helping festivals like ours grow they enhance the visitor experience, and that translates directly into increased attendance. The support of the province is further

validation of the high standards set in the Tweed Tribute To Elvis Festival planning and execution. The province reports that “Traditionally, festivals and events that received Celebrate Ontario funding greatly exceeded program performance measures. For example, in 2011 there was an increase of 1.1 million visitors (an 18 per cent increase in visitor attendance) to these festivals and events, and over $165 million in visitor spending over 2010.” Keniston went on to recognize and compliment TMF Treasurer Bonnie Jussila’s efforts in preparing the extensive documentation required for application to Celebrate Ontario. “Without Bonnie’s commitment and enthusiasm we would not be the beneficiary of this fantastic windfall. We will use our Celebrate Ontario funding in advancing and expanding our already extensive marketing program, aiming to draw guests from even farther afield than in past years. I know this support will help us take our event to the next level and to make our visitors’ experience even better.”

Sculpting a block of Wisconsin cheddar cheese By John M. Smith

EMC Lifestyles - I recently had the good fortune to go to Wisconsin’s Fox Cities area with a group of travel writers, and while here I watched the creation of my first awesome cheese sculpture. I’ve, of course, seen some pretty impressive wood, sand, and ice sculptures in my travels, but I’ve never actually witnessed such a cheese “work of art” before. Since this event took place in Wisconsin, it indeed seemed to be a most appropriate setting for working with cheese, and renowned sculptor Troy Landwehr put on this demonstration for us in Neenah’s Bergstrom Mahler Museum. Here I was able to watch him take an ordinary looking 40-pound block of cheddar cheese and create an extraordinary bouquet of tulips in a Fox Cities tourist bag – in less than two hours! It was certainly impressive! He then sprayed the “creation” with a cooking spray, to make it glisten for the “photo ops,” and then gave it to the Fox Cities CVB to put on display and eventually eat! Troy, who has appeared on the David Letterman Show, and has sculpted blocks of cheese internationally in such destinations as Great Britain and Hong Kong, told me cheese is his favourite medium to work with, for “there’s absoSculptor Troy Landwehr produced this sculpture from a 40-pound block of cheddar cheese at the Bergstrom Mahler Museum. lutely no waste.

Reality Check:

Sheila Wray Gregoire EMC Lifestyles - A friend of mine, who works as a 911 dispatcher, recently told me about an emergency call she got from a dad who dialed 911 when he discovered that his teenage daughter had posted naked pictures of herself on Facebook. He was desperate,

Winning the parenting power struggle

and to him this was an emergency. My friend, though, wasn’t amused. She wasn’t in the position to do anything about it, because she wasn’t the girl’s parent. He was. He was in the midst of the battle of all battles: the parenting power struggle. Yet too often, by the time we have teenagers, we feel helpless. But parents, there is no one else. You are in the unique position to influence your teens’ lives, and you need to take it. Does your teen have a cell phone? Does your teen have a computer? Internet access? A comfortable room? Dessert? None of those things is a necessity, and likely most of them are paid for by you. Therefore, you have leverage. Unfortunately, by the time the Parenting Power Struggle rages in the teen years winning it is much harder. It’s easier to have an effect when children

The Good Earth: EMC Lifestyles - Gentle Reader, this column was written almost ten years ago. I submit it to my editors every now and then and they graciously run it; I hope the day will come when there is no longer a need. Social conditions may take time to change: hunger is now. A 2013 addendum: the need is so great that an unprecedented food drive will be taking place on May 4 weekend. Trucks will be at Trenton High School, St. Paul’s High School, The Wesleyan Methodist Church, the parking lot at the old Crane plant on Sidney Street and the doors at the Care and Share Food Bank at 38 Guelph Street will be open.  Also, there are drop off points at Price Chopper, Smilies Independent Grocer, Metro and Bayshore Credit Union. Care and Share’s web site is <www.>.   September 21, 2003 It’s been a while since we’ve

are younger. Yet too many parents give up in the early years, perhaps without even realizing it. Their kids don’t want to go to bed until midnight, so they stay up late. The kids want to eat junk food, so the parents serve chicken fingers. Because of the absence of arguments, the parents feel like the children are obeying, after all, they’ve found no need for discipline. But children can’t obey if no rules are laid down. The parents have thrown in the towel. Yet what happens when we throw in the towel too early? We don’t end the Parenting Power Struggle. We simply delay it. Think of the amount of freedom you give your kids as the shape of an upside-down pyramid. When kids are little, you don’t give them much leeway. But because of this, they learn to make good decisions, since you’re providing structure, security, and a moral foundation. As they age,

you can give them progressively more freedom, the wide part of the pyramid, because they won’t abuse it. If, instead, we let our little ones rule, you’ll find your parenting more like a right-side up pyramid: you’ll have to crack down hard in their teen years. Just when you should be loosening the strings to let them out of the nest, you’re tightening them because you’re scared of what they’ll do. So how do we enforce standards when they’re young? It doesn’t involve being mean, and it certainly doesn’t involve yelling. If you yell a lot but your child never actually changes his or her behaviour, then you haven’t done anything except raise the volume of the house and teach your child to tune you out. How much better to remain calm, express your disapproval, and then remove a toy, enforce a time out, or take away TV privileges.

The need persists

strolled down the philosophical garden path, Gentle Reader. Today, though, we’ll take the way less trodden. We have a fairly good understanding as to why we, ourselves, garden. As some old chap mentioned a year or two ago, truth, good and beauty seems to sum up the qualities rather well. A cynic might say that, truth be told, our flower gardens are merely affectations of the well-to-do. If this seems harsh to read, especially in a gardening column, consider this: those of us who can spend time gardening have a.) stewardship of our own bit of this good earth; b.) the monetary resources to purchase the plants and tools needed; c.) the luxury of the time to do it; and d.) a lifestyle that allows for the time to even contemplate such a venture unencumbered by the daily need to merely provide for our families. By the standards of our society, we have worked hard to be able to do this and there should be no negative connotations assumed for doing so.

However, there is a certain fragility about our comfort that needs to be acknowledged. We know too well that there are folks in our country, in our own communities, who do not enjoy such luxury. These people are not indigent bums who leach off of us. The majority are hard-working, proud, valuable members of our community who are astonished to find themselves in such need. All it takes is a factory closure or temporary shutdown to jeopardise many a family’s finances. Visit your local food bank, ask any social service agency about child poverty, talk to the Sally Anns about the desperate need some of our neighbours have to deal with every day. Ask them specifically about food. There is no excuse that allows people to go hungry in our land of plenty. There is a way to affect some tangible good with our gardens. It is so simple, grow some extra vegetables or fruits for donation. Plant a Row Grow

a Row is a movement that began in the United States and is spreading across North America. Folks are asked to set aside a patch of their own land specifically for other people. The produce is brought to a central collection place such as the food bank or a community run greenhouse or garden plots. Depending on the nature of the crop and the immediate need, the food is distributed where it can do the most good. In fact, by inquiring before you plant in the spring, you can sow the veggies most needed, even if it is broccoli or cauliflower. In Canada, the “seed” organisation is the Composting Council of Canada. They have all of the promotional material, planning guidelines and an amazing network of connections that you can access. Visit their web site to get started <>. Anyone can initiate such a program but it takes the community to bring it to fruition. That is why you are reading about

Do something with consequences, and kids will learn. Raise the roof, and kids will keep doing whatever they want to, they’ll just do it more sullenly. This kind of effective, consequencebased discipline is hard, though, because it requires consistency, and some days we just don’t have the energy to deal with a kid who is screaming because they have lost their game boy, or their Lego, or their chance to watch cartoons. That’s why we need that long-term perspective. Put in that work in the first five years, and you’ll have less of a chance that your daughter will be broadcasting X-rated pictures of herself ten years later. Don’t be afraid to be the boss, whether your child is seven or 17. Steering kids in the right direction is what a parent is for. And there really is no substitute.

Bike clinic fund raising for The Bridge Hospice healing cycle ride team By Sue Dickens

EMC News - Warkworth - Bike inspections and mini tune-ups, safety sessions and lessons are all part of a bike clinic and barbeque being hosted by The Bridge Hospice (TBH) healing cycle riding team. Any hospice palliative care organization that wants to raise money through the annual Healing Cycle Ride in Mississauga can enter a team and TBH supporters are gearing up for the big event. “One hundred per cent of the funds raised by our team will go directly to The Bridge Hospice,” said David Pollack, one of the cyclists who will be participating in the healing cycle ride which takes place June 23 in Mississauga. The bike clinic at the Warkworth arena is one way they hope to raise sponsorship for the ride. A minimum of $500 is needed for each cyclist to participate in the Healing Cycle Ride. The $500 and any money raised by TBH team will be given directly back to TBH. Pollack said he participated in the Healing

Cycling Ride last year with Kelly Isfan, former CEO of the Campbellford hospital. Together they raised about $1,800 for TBH. “There were about 400 riders of all ages and all descriptions last year and all have personal experience either with a loved one dying or with palliative care or it’s an important aspect of their lives,” said Pollack. “We are hoping to recruit some additional riders for our healing team this year,” he added. Pollack cycles 200 kilometres each week to stay fit. The bike clinic gives the team a chance to raise money for the ride. The safety sessions and lessons will be free and will be taught by a Can-Bike instructor. Bike inspections and mini tune-ups are being offered for a fee of $15 for adult bikes and $10 for children’s bikes. As well a barbeque will be held so folks can buy a hot dog and a cold drink for $5. Calvin Newman, an avid cyclist, has joined the TBH Riding Team and said he is looking forward to the event in June.

Bob Rowe, a director for The Bridge Hospice, and co-chair of the Stewardship & Communications Committee oversees the fund-raising events for TBH. He told Trent Hills Regional News that TBH will be opening its first bed on June 1. The hospice is debt and mortgage-free and is now focusing on raising funds for its operational expenses as there is no government funding for the residential hospice. Fund-raising events such as the 3rd annual Bridge Hospice Walk-a-thon happening on May 4 and the upcoming bike clinic and barbeque on Saturday, May 11, are just some of the ways supporters hope to raise money for ongoing operation of TBH. The bike clinic takes place, rain for shine, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., the barbeque is from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. To sponsor or join the TBH Riding Team go to: < events/>.

Another Presqu’ile Bay meeting on tap By Ray Yurkowski

EMC News - Brighton - Another meeting of Presqu’ile Bay stakeholders, tentatively set for April 29, is looking at inviting more interests around the table while local advocacy group Guardians of Presqu’ile Bay opt out. In an email sent to meeting organizer, municipal Councillor Tom Rittwage, group leader, aquatic environmental scientist Roger Green, says his group is “too busy” and adds the problem with the first meeting was “excessive fragmentation,” given the number of groups on hand. “It sounds like the second meeting will be even more so.” According to suggestions, St. Marys Cement; the Nature Conservancy; Presqu’ile Ratepayers Association; local marina owners; commercial fishermen; and the owner of Presqu’ile Bay Outfitters, a business at Gosport, should be included in the talks. “I think our group has progressed well beyond this sort of meeting,” wrote Green. “We are busy co-ordinating with Ontario Ministry of Environment (MOE), who have confirmed that they will be monitoring Presqu’ile Bay three times this summer at 11 sta-

tions as a result of our efforts persuading them over the last year. “We just want you to bear in mind, as you go into this second meeting, that we are the only group which is concerned with environmental assessment, monitoring, and preservation of Presqu’ile Bay as a whole, and which has appropriate expertise. And we are the group that MOE is working with in that regard.” Because the Guardians are not yet a registered not-for-profit agency, they were turned down in a recent bid to partner with the Lower Trent Conservation Authority in applying for a grant through the Great Lakes Guardian Fund. The money would have been used to help pay for equipment to supplement MOE testing efforts. But, says Green, all is not lost. “I have just confirmed we can borrow sampling equipment from Trent University,” he said. “As well, we expect to be applying to Brighton Council for some funding.” Green says a meeting will be organized by MOE to provide municipal officials the details of the monitoring program at the bay. Ministry officers from the Peterborough office, Kingston regional office and the Great Lakes Unit (Toronto) are expected to attend. “I have started the ball rolling on organizing a monitoring workshop which will probably be held next fall at Trent University,” Green added. “It will be organized as a case study modelled on the design and analysis of the Presqu’ile Bay monitoring study. Attendees are expected to include MOE staff and Trent University faculty and graduate students.”

Another group bowing out of the late-April session will be a group of residents, led by activist Scott Anderson, looking to restore a neighbourhood inlet on the bay. “We’re concentrating on restoring our wetland and making a difference,” said Anderson. “It’s time to roll up our sleeves and get something done.”

Antique boats returning to waterfront festival By Bill Freeman

EMC News - Hastings - It’s still early in the planning, but fans of restored and classic boats will be happy to know that the Trent Severn Antique & Classic Boat Association is coming back to this summer’s seventh annual Hastings Waterfront Festival August 16 to 18. The 150-member association couldn’t participate last year because it conflicted with the Big Cruise Big Cause hosted by the Toronto chapter of the Antique Classic Boat Society which re-enacted the 100-mile cruise of the Muskoka Steamships run from Gravenhurst to Natural Park on Little Lake Joseph. But the classic boats, always a popular draw, will return this year to the Hastings Village Marina, says festival committee member Roger Warren who provided a brief update during the most recent Hastings Revitalization Association meeting. The HRA runs the festival’s food tent. Warren says the committee “has not yet met a lot this year” so there isn’t a great deal to report but confirmed that

the crowd-pleasing festival will expand to include a Saturday night menu of entertainment to go along with its opening Friday evening program, a full-day of Saturday displays, children’s activities, food and music and Sunday’s exhibits and classic car show. “The committee is about to embark on meetings shortly,” he said. Some of the entertainment has already been arranged and the classic outboard motor club will also return. “We’ve had dozens and dozens of requests from vendors but no fees have been set yet,” Warren said. The big change is the addition of Saturday night’s entertainment which includes the beer garden. The Friday night kickoff concert usually draws over 1,000 people to the south shore marina grounds. Saturday’s daytime program will be similar to last year’s with its family day theme featuring scores of exhibits, vendors, artists, heritage displays and children’s events. The Hastings Historical Society is putting together a sports-themed exhibition focusing on NHL hockey legend and Hall of Famer Dit Clapper, the Canadian cham-

pion Hastings Legionnaires lacrosse team and Hastings place as a softball mecca. Last year the HHS put on a railwaythemed exhibition. “Last year there were a number of couples and families looking for entertainment [on Saturday night],” Banjo’s Restaurant owner Mike Metcalf said. “I think that’s where the idea sprung from,” Warren said. “People were wondering why it shutdown Saturday at 5 p.m. It was all a matter of volunteers. “To run another seven hours requires at least 21 volunteers,” he said. “Volunteers are key,” festival committee member Camille Edwards agreed. “We are talking long, long days. It’s trying to find the volunteers to man all these different hours. It gets very difficult.” “The HRA’s involvement is really around food,” Warren noted. “But if you’re not into food [and want to help out] the Waterfront Festival has things for you and would love to hear from you.” Last year’s Waterfront Festival drew over 5,000 people.

EMC News - Trenton - Phil Cook is ready to play. The 21-year-old music lover usually uses a bulky electric wheelchair and, until recently, was unable to reach his new drum kit. And while he found a perfect replacement in a smaller, more utilitarian model, there was no way to cover the $5,500 expense. That’s when his musical friends from Wrought Iron Roots stepped in. The band, which includes Trenton musicians Travis and Brandon Whaley, Richard Ellis and Bruce Forsythe along with Stirling’s Lynzi Couch, say it’s all about making music accessible. “We just wanted to help,” says Couch. The band organized a fund-raising jamboree, held in Frankford on April 14, with the hopes of getting Cook closer to his goal after his own fund raiser netted less than $100. Included in the concert were Steve and Spike Piticco, Debbie McLean, Julie Simpson, Robin Edgar and Stompin Jon with John and Rita Harpell, who provided music as well as the sound, rounding out the show. And in the end it was more than the performers could have hoped for and well beyond what Cook could have expected. “The benefit was sold out long before the show,” says Couch, and ticket sales went a significant way toward the total before the music even started. “We raised $2,300,” she says, “and we got hold of Medigas who pitched in the rest of the money to give Phil his

EMC Entertainment - Havelock - Living legend Charlie Daniels and his band and Kix Brooks, one half of mega-selling Brooks & Dunn, are on their way to the Havelock Country Jamboree. With only Sunday afternoon’s closing act to be filled, the lineup is now complete for the 24th edition of Canada’s largest on-site camping country music jamboree. The four-day party kicks off August 15 with award-winning Canadian artist Tara Oram opening things up on a Thursday bill that includes Smalltown Pistols, the famously dynamic brother and sister duo of Amanda and Tyler Wilkinson and Brooks, flying solo after a 20-year career with Ronnie Dunn that sold over 30 million records and won more Country Music Association Awards and Academy of Country Music Awards than any act in history. The Charlie Daniels Band headlines the Thursday night show launching the Jamboree off with a classic southern boogie style that will drive all over the musical landscape. A full-fledged member of The Grand Ole Opry and a Grammy winner for his genrebusting The Devil Went Down To Georgia, Daniels has never lost his passion for performing and the six-piece band will fire up the Jamboree grounds. “I used to say, ‘I’m not an outlaw; I’m an outcast,’” Daniels has said. “When it gets right down to the nitty gritty, I’ve just tried to be who I am. I’ve never followed trends or fads. I couldn’t even if I tried. I can’t be them; I can’t be anybody but me.” Also added to the Jamboree lineup Western Avenue, a breakout Peterborough-based

Pianists open Stirling Festival of Praise

EMC News - Stirling - The 63rd Annual Stirling Festival of Sacred Praise began last weekend at St. Paul’s United Church and continues until the end of the month with adjudicated classes in various categories. And the festival continues to encourage area residents, and particularly young people, to express themselves musically with piano

classes kicking off the event last Sunday afternoon. Held under the auspices of the Council of St. Paul’s United Church and the Stirling Festival Committee, the annual celebration runs from April 21 to May 1 featuring vocal and instrumental classes at the church and the Stirling Festival Theatre. As a member of the Ontario Music Festival Association, Stirling R0012047673

also offers competitive classes but, explains Committee Chair Donna Russett, “the object is not to gain a prize, but to promote a love of sacred praise, especially among boys, girls and young people.” The festival offers non-competitive classes for family musicians and music makers as well as adults performing at all levels. Adjudicators this year include Jarred Dunn (piano), Lance Ouellette (string instruments, bands, brass and woodwinds), Natalie Pratt (vocal) and the Reverend Rodney Smith (scripture). All competitions, except Open Class, are restricted to amateur musicians unless otherwise stated in the rules. Most classes will be held at the United Church throughout the twoweek festival with bands, woodwinds and brass classes scheduled for Friday, April 26 (tomorrow) at the Stirling Festival Theatre. All vocal classes, including choirs, groups and solos, are set for April 28, 29 and 30 with the festival wrapping up with scripture classes on May 1. The festival will again feature a followup “Stars of the Festival” concert on Friday, May 10, that will highlight some of the top performers and award winners from this year’s competition. Organizers have also announced the return of the Scholarship Ben-

Samantha Pyke of Campbellford was among the young performers who participated in the opening day of the Stirling Festival of Sacred Praise last weekend. The festival continues at St. Paul’s United Church until May 1.

efit Concert, this year featuring local violinist Sebastian Sallans and internationally acclaimed pianist Petya Stavreva, planned for June 8 at 7 p.m. The concert marks a return engagement for Sallans who was a longtime participant in the annual festival and is now pursuing a professional music career and continuing his studies. All classes for the 63rd Annual Festival of Sacred Praise, held between April 21 and May 1 are open to the public. Admission to the mid-May Stars of the Festival concert is $3 for adults and 50 cents for children.

Vocalese spring concert fund raiser EMC Entertainment - Warkworth - St. Paul’s United Church in Warkworth is becoming famous for its successful fund-raising concerts. A joyful sound will be heard at the Vocalese Spring Concert. The Vocalese group consists of 38 members from Roseneath, Castleton, Grafton, Colborne, Warkworth and Brighton. It is under the direction of Mitchell Cox, a brilliant young musician who is a graduate of the University of Regina and has studied and taught in England and Japan. As an Associate of the Royal Conservatory of Toronto, he has been an examiner for that institution for the past ten years. Rather than competing with other choral

groups who are predominately sacred and classical in nature, Vocalese chooses a wider repertoire that not only includes the sacred and classical, but also renaissance folk, modern jazz, pop and Broadway. Special guest performers at this spring concert will be Stephen Rapos and his daughter Olivia, of Warkworth. This fund raiser is being hosted by St. Paul’s United Church in Warkworth on Sunday, May 5, at the church, 60 Main Street. Doors open at 2 p.m. The show starts at 2:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at Eclectic Mix in Warkworth or by calling Don Young 705-924-3121 or Ruth Widdowson 705924-3843.

Shedding light on child abuse children out there. They don’t see it because it’s not brought right out to their attention,” Hammerton said. “To me it’s a very passionate song that will hopefully open those eyes.” On April 15, Hammerton’s song Don’t Walk Away was released alongside a music video shot and produced by Brethour. The music video was produced on

a zero dollar budget, and Brethour said the hope is to raise awareness for a very real issue across Canada. “I think what [Hammerton] did with the song … he did a really remarkable job. I was willing to get on board entirely,” Brethour said. After Hammerton’s song Her Fishing Dream gained some exposure, he was approached by the Carl Perkins Centre for Prevention of Child Abuse to write a song for Child Abuse Prevention Month, which takes place in April in the U.S. A mutual friend then contacted Brethour about helping produce a music video, and the collaboration was born. Roughly two and half weeks of work went into the video, and on April 15 the song was released, highlighted by being played on CJBQ that morning. “A lot of my passion in my writing comes from past life issues, and things that you were going through,” Hammerton said. “When you actually have to deal with these things in your own life that’s when you can see everything around you more clearly, as opposed to being hidden, the things you don’t normally see every day.” A portion of the proceeds from the YouLocal country musician Darcy Hammerton and filmmaker Michael Brethour have produced a music video for charity entitled tube views will also be donated to charity. “Don’t Walk Away.” Photo: Submitted By Steve Jessel

Brethour said the pair are also hoping to release a single CD in the future, and are looking for sponsors to help get the project off the ground. “I’m proud to have my name attached to it,” Brethour said, referring to the video. “Sitting back and looking at it I think it’s pretty amazing for a zero dollar budget.” The video can be seen by visiting < watch?v=qAfbtUmx9_s>.

Man injured in possible firearm mishap

EMC News - Alnwick-Haldimand - A report of a possible hunting accident where a firearm was discharged causing injury to a male in AlnwickHaldimand Township was received by the Northumberland OPP Saturday, April 20, at approximately 4:21 p.m. OPP and Northumberland Emergency Medical Services (EMS) attended to a possible hunting accident on Rolph Road when they received information that the male resident from Thornhill was

injured as a result of an exploding gun barrel. A group of people had attended to the location for a sanctioned hunting retreat and were conducting bird hunting exercises. The victim discharged a 1905 LC Smith Carl Grant edition, 12 gauge double barrel shot gun when the barrel exploded for unknown reasons, causing the combustion to break out from the barrel into the victim’s hand. All parties present were trained and certified in

the use of firearms and holders of valid hunting licences. The firearm used has been serviced on a regular basis to ensure it is in safe working order. EMS transported the male victim to a local hospital where he was admitted for non-life-threatening injuries. No one else was injured as a result of the exploding firearm.
