Celebrate Havelock attracts crowds again By Sue Dickens
EMC News - Havelock - The inside of the community centre was transformed into a microcosm of the community outside as large and small businesses, non-profit organizations, rural and urban folks mingled to â€œCelebrate Havelock.â€? The day-long event organized by the Celebrate Havelock committee, a small but mighty group of about ten volunteers chaired by Elmer Buchanan, drew a crowd from the moment the doors to the Havelock-Belmont-Methuen (HBM) Community Centre opened at 9 a.m. until they closed seven hours later. Sixty exhibitors set up their displays featuring their products and services under one roof. Food vendors, a Bouncy Castle and baby chicks and alpacas meant there was something for everyone, young and old. Free workshops and demonstrations from a Master Gardener to Jiu Jitsu against a backdrop of music by the Norwood District High School Band and the Mid Week Jammers kept visitors entertained. â€œThis event is about bringing the community together to truly celebrate the community,â€? said Buchanan, while rushing around making sure nothing was amiss. â€œItâ€™s a celebration for businesses, community organizations and people who live in this community to come together and see what this community has to offer.â€? Dropping by the Quilts Plus display at Celebrate Havelock are: left, Sharon McCuaig of Toronto and her sister Kathy Clement, extreme right, of Havelock.

Landowner refuses Hydro One access to repair power line By John Campbell
Trent Hills - A Trent Hills businessman has told Hydro One to stay off his property until he receives an apology in writing. Paul Joss refused to let Hydro One workers on his land last month to fix a power line that had snapped during the ice storm, because of a longstanding feud with the provincial utility. It goes back to 2005 when â€œa hydro line dropped and burned a hayfield offâ€? on the 86-acre property he owns on the 12th Line north of Campbellford. They said â€œit was an act of God [so] they didnâ€™t bother compensating him,â€? Mr. Joss said, but â€œif the hydro line hadnâ€™t been
on my property, it wouldnâ€™t have caught fire.â€? Since then there have been occasions when Hydro One personnel have driven across his fields in their trucks, leaving ruts and making it â€œrougher than hellâ€? to cut hay. When he confronted a forestry crew on his land a few years ago, they â€œmouthed offâ€? at him. â€œI had the cops escort them off the property,â€? said Mr. Joss, whoâ€™s the president of the Northumberland/Prince Edward/ Hastings chapter of the Ontario Landowners Association, an organization whose members are fiercely protective of their property rights. Hydro One has a 99-year lease
on a 66-foot wide easement that gives it access to the 44,000-volt hydro line but itâ€™s almost impossible to get to without going onto his property. The line has been dead since the ice storm April 12 when Mr. Joss blocked Hydro One trucks from entering his driveway to make the necessary repairs. Â A truck returned the next day with the OPP but when he gave his side of the story, the officer agreed he was within his legal right to deny Hydro One entrance, Mr. Joss said. He held his ground two hours later when a Hydro One supervisor showed up to apologize in person. He refused to accept it. â€œI said a

formal apology is a letter, itâ€™s not a case of somebody walking in saying weâ€™re sorry,â€? Mr. Joss said. Nancy Shaddick, a communications officer for Hydro One, confirmed a â€œsupervisor attending the scene apologized on behalf of the companyâ€? but did not offer any further detail. She said the line is â€œa redundancyâ€? built into the electricity system to ensure a reliable supply of power. â€œOut of respect for the landownerâ€™s request, we have not crossed the propertyâ€? to repair the line, Ms. Shaddick said, and the utility is â€œlooking at optionsâ€? for restoring its backup supply. Mr. Joss said heâ€™s not the only landowner in the area whose prop-
erty has been damaged by Hydro One employees. Ms. Shaddick didnâ€™t know if there have been other complaints but she said whenever there is damage thatâ€™s a result of â€œHydro Oneâ€™s negligence,â€? customers can submit a claim to its third party insurance provider, Quelmec Loss Adjusters, who will â€œinvestigate the claim and determine if appropriate compensation is needed or required.â€? â€œThere are good guys on Hydro,â€? Mr. Joss said. His beef is with the â€œbad apples and â€Ś the higher-ups who donâ€™t give a damn. Theyâ€™re the ones that are going to have to come and do a formal apology.â€?

Harry Kavanagh was a successful shopper at the Norwood Lions Clubs Wacky Water Race Day yard sale at Lions Park. The day of yard sale shopping for visitors to the Norwood begins at Lions Park where the Lions host a barbecue and a yard sale with the Lioness Club. In the afternoon the madcap blue whale race plunges down the Ouse River to be followed by the traditional Italian Feast in the town hall where this year the Lions will kick off fundraising efforts for a childrenâ€™s splashpad at the community centre. The tradition of street-by-street, neighbourhood-by-neighbourhood yard sales in Norwood always draws a crowd. Photo: Bill Freeman

Now in its sixth year and building on its formula for success, displays were set up outside and indoors. Buchanan and Lee Resmerâ€™s Elmlea Farm display with its alpacas and angoras was again a very popular attraction. Kathy Clement of Havelock moved here last fall and has been to Celebrate Havelock before. â€œWhen you move to a community this is the best way to ďŹ nd out whatâ€™s going on,â€? she said. She was with her sister Sharon McCuaig of
Toronto who said with a grin, â€œThey probably do have things like this in Toronto but I donâ€™t know because I come down here all the time.â€? They were admiring the quilts, placemats, tote bags and knitting by two other sisters, Anne and Mary Garron of Quilts Plus in Douro. â€œThis is a great way to let people know who we are,â€? commented Anne Garron. Nearby Doreen Sharpe of Sharpe Physiotherapy of Trent River had a display and was letting people know about her free education classes on neck and back pain, Nordic Stick walking and safe gardening.
Speaking of gardening, Master Gardener Judy Bernard, of Havelock, hosted a workshop on pruning tips. â€œI thought considering the damage to trees by the ice storm this might be a good subject,â€? she said. From the K9 Komfort Inn to Copperhill Solar Systems to Belmont Engine Repair to Dunfords, and the Havelock-Belmont-Methuen Township Fire/Emergency Services, the community centre was the place to be last Saturday.
