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 “Celebrate Havelock.� 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. “This event is about bringing the community together to truly celebrate the community,� said Buchanan, while rushing around making sure nothing was amiss. “It’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.� 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 “a hydro line dropped and burned a hayfield off� on the 86-acre property he owns on the 12th Line north of Campbellford. They said “it was an act of God [so] they didn’t bother compensating him,� Mr. Joss said, but “if the hydro line hadn’t been



on my property, it wouldn’t have caught fire.� Since then there have been occasions when Hydro One personnel have driven across his fields in their trucks, leaving ruts and making it “rougher than hell� to cut hay. When he confronted a forestry crew on his land a few years ago, they “mouthed off� at him. “I had the cops escort them off the property,� said Mr. Joss, who’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 it’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.  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. “I said a

formal apology is a letter, it’s not a case of somebody walking in saying we’re sorry,� Mr. Joss said. Nancy Shaddick, a communications officer for Hydro One, confirmed a “supervisor attending the scene apologized on behalf of the company� but did not offer any further detail. She said the line is “a redundancy� built into the electricity system to ensure a reliable supply of power. “Out of respect for the landowner’s request, we have not crossed the property� to repair the line, Ms. Shaddick said, and the utility is “looking at options� for restoring its backup supply. Mr. Joss said he’s not the only landowner in the area whose prop-

erty has been damaged by Hydro One employees. Ms. Shaddick didn’t know if there have been other complaints but she said whenever there is damage that’s a result of “Hydro One’s negligence,â€? customers can submit a claim to its third party insurance provider, Quelmec Loss Adjusters, who will “investigate the claim and determine if appropriate compensation is needed or required.â€? “There are good guys on Hydro,â€? Mr. Joss said. His beef is with the “bad apples and ‌ the higher-ups who don’t give a damn. They’re the ones that are going to have to come and do a formal apology.â€?

Now in its sixth year and building on its formula for success, displays were set up outside and indoors. Buchanan and Lee Resmerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x153;When you move to a community this is the best way to ďŹ nd out whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going on,â&#x20AC;? she said.

They were admiring the quilts, placemats, tote bags and knitting by two other sisters, Anne and Mary Garron of Quilts Plus in Douro. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a great way to let people know who we are,â&#x20AC;? 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&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought considering the damage to trees by the ice storm this might be a good subject,â&#x20AC;? 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.

CDHS environmental club promotes healthy school

By Sue Dickens

EMC News - Campbellford - Protecting and enhancing the health of everyone within the school community is a role near and dear to the hearts of students in the environmental club at Campbellford District High School (CDHS). “I believe in good stewardship,” said Linnea Kalchos, a Grade 12 student, and student leader. “When I started here we didn’t even have recycling in our school so now we have recycling, a community garden and we have a native plants garden,” she added. “A group of us all got together and we thought it was important that the school be an example

“We would like to see students from the younger grades get involved.” for the community in terms of environmental leadership.” The day of the interview Kalchos was busy setting up a table in the front hallway of the school with help from other club members and staff advisor Julie Drain, learning and lifeskills (LLS) teacher at CDHS. “We are asking students to fill out a survey,” she explained, while setting up dozens of steel water bottles to be given away in draws, as encouragement. Behind her on the wall is a glass display case filled with empty plastic water bottles. Hundreds of millions of water bottles end up in landfill and Kalchos and her fellow club members want to see that change. Do you recycle regularly at our school? Do you regularly purchase plastic water bottles? Do you recycle regularly at home?

Those are just some of the nine questions on the survey students were asked to answer. “I think this is a really good idea,” said Alex McQuaid, a Grade 12 student who stopped by to fill out the survey. “More than 100 surveys were filled out in two days by students and staff,” said Kalchos later in the week. The Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge District Health Unit gave the club a “Nutrition Policy/Healthy Eating Secondary School Grant,” and the focus was to improve the health of the students by encouraging the students to drink water, and to improve the environmental health of the school by reducing the use of disposable plastic bottles. The club purchased and gave away 100 steel bottles during the survey. Kalchos said she also hopes the event encouraged more students to join the club. Right now there are about a dozen students from Grades 11 and 12. “We would like to see students from the younger grades get involved,” she said. The club meets once a week at lunch time for about half an hour. But the survey is not all the club is doing. “We’re part of a group called Youth for Global Change that meets in Peterborough,” said Kalchos. “One of the things our environmental club has done is to partner up with Global Youth Day and it’s happening in Peterborough on Friday, May 17.” She and Christa Caverly, a victory lap student, will be hosting a workshop there during the tenth annual Global Youth Day Conference. “It’s a big youth conference and students from a whole bunch of schools in the area go there and it’s supported by the Kawartha World Issues Centre in Peterborough,” said Kalchos with excitement. Their workshop “Local Action, Global Change” is actually a youth-led discussion on

youth participation in social and environmental justice activism. “Our workship will be focusing on community gardens as a way to combat poverty and hunger in local communities. We’re very excited about it,” said Kalchos. “As you can see this is a really dynamic group of students. They care very much about the health of our school as far as the environment and the students and they also care about the health of the greater community,” said staff advisor Drain.

St. Maryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Church Campbellford is making an appeal to the community for help in its quest to raise the $600,000 needed to restore the tower. In front is Father Jean-Pierre Pilon; back from left, Patricia McKay, church sacristan; Jim McKay, chair of the churchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s finance and fund-raising committee; Tom Plue, owner of Sky-High Restoration, has been contracted to do the work.

building is a significant historical landmark in Campbellford and should be looked at as one of the biggest community restoration projects ever undertaken in Campbellford, and should be given support by the whole community, and not looked at as a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Catholicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; landmark.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whether people use it as a place of worship or not they do use it visually every day whether they notice it or not, consciously. When it is pointed out to people they do notice that it is part of who they are in Campbellford,â&#x20AC;? said Father Pilon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And so in the last two-anda-half years weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve pretty much done everything we could within the church itself, ongoing fundraising activities where people have contributed what they could from their resources. So now we are putting out an appeal to the whole town.â&#x20AC;? Tom Plue, owner of Sky-High Restoration, has been contracted to do the work and has started with some of the repairs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is no work being done right now because there is no money,â&#x20AC;? said Father Pilon.

EMC News - Campbellford The message is clearâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Help save one of Campbellfordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s historical landmarks.â&#x20AC;? Those words are visible on an eight- by six-foot sign on the front lawn of St. Maryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Roman Catholic Church here and the congregation hopes it is garnering attention. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re appealing to the community,â&#x20AC;? said Father Jean-Pierre Pilon who is hoping people will help support their quest to raise the $600,000 needed to restore the churchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bell tower. Water has been leaking into the church for decades and the damage has reached the stage where the restoration work needs to be done to save this historic landmark. To date the churchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s finance and fund-raising committee led by its chair, Jim McKay, has raised $100,000. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This has been a process almost ever since Father Pilon came here so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been almost three years â&#x20AC;Ś and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a process that is going to continue over a long period of time,â&#x20AC;? said McKay. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The funds to repair the steeple [and tower] are coming in slowly but steadily. This is a huge project

for this parish,â&#x20AC;? he added. The water damage over time was more the result of a lack of awareness than anything else. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If it had been maintained through the years maybe what we would be fixing now is where the steeple joins onto the tower which also needs to be done,â&#x20AC;? noted Father Pilon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is a multiplicity of points of entry. The major point of entry has been taken care of but the multiplicity of points of entry are everywhere in the tower, everywhere where there is no mortar between the stones, the water is coming in,â&#x20AC;? he explained. At first it was thought that the steeple or roof were where the problem originated. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So the roof has been fixed a number of times but the problem has never been the roof. The problem has been the tower dragging the water, pooling it in one area and it would find all these points of entry,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The steeple is not the problem [either]. It is fine. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the tower, the stone structure of the tower, the mortar in the stone thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the problem,â&#x20AC;? he explained. Renowned historic restoration architect Peter Stokes has seen the damage and told EMC, â&#x20AC;&#x153;This

Dear Editor, Re: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Quit complaining; count your blessings instead.â&#x20AC;? Francis T. Hay feels I was being unreasonable in my criticism of Hydro Oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s response to the recent ice storm, and he has completely missed my point about the need to upgrade and modernize the rural power grid in order to mitigate the damage caused by severe weather. Apparently heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s misconstrued my letter about the length of time it took to restore electrical power to certain areas of Northumberland County (and speciďŹ cally Trent Hills) as being directed at the emergency line workers whose job it was to repair downed power lines and replace toppled poles. It was not. It was directed at Hydro One, a monopoly utility company whose proďŹ t motive outweighs its commitment to maintain a robust electricity delivery system in rural areas, quickly repair outages when they occur, and provide an effective customer communication system concerning the status of repair work. Calls to Hydro Oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 24hour power outage hotline provided little, if any, accurate information. The automated system continually changed the estimated date/ time for power restoration. I was repeatedly advised that power would be restored by 11 p.m. each and every day

I wondered if Hydro One crews were working 24 hours (overnight) doing repairs to power lines during this emergency? I am skeptical as I never saw any evidence of crews working at night, or received an estimated time for power restoration after midnight or before the next morning. I wondered if enough emergency workers were available during the stormâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s aftermath. Did Hydro One bring in work crews from other areas of the province or other jurisdictions (Quebec or the U.S.?) to assist in restoring power, as they themselves helped New Jersey in the wake of hurricane Sandy? I know the ice was thick and heavy. I did drive around after the storm and saw the damage ďŹ rst hand in the area of County Road 45 at Fenella. I wondered how old those ten toppled poles were, and how long it had been since Hydro One had performed any preventive maintenance on this line by trimming branches

that were overhanging the wires? If 83 hours without power isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enough, I wonder at what point Mr. Hay feels one might be justiďŹ ed in voicing some dissatisfaction? One week without power? How about a month? Perhaps people living in rural area shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t complain at all and just suck it up? The power will be restored when itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s restored and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll count our blessings when it is. If the ice storm had affected an urban area, you can rest assured that it wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have taken four days for Hydro One to restore power. Why is it that rural electricity customers are always the last to have their power restored? Mr. Hay smugly suggests that â&#x20AC;&#x153;anyone with my attitudeâ&#x20AC;? buy a generator and worry no more about not having hydro. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d barely be inconvenienced,â&#x20AC;? he states. While redundant emergency systems and self-sufďŹ ciency is nice to have for those with the means, has Mr. Hay considered that perhaps not everyone has the money to make such a purchase? Emergency generators cost between $500 and $1,000. A standby generator of the type he mentions can cost up to $5,000 or more. He suggests that I put the money I saved from being without power for 83 hours toward a gasoline generator. I suspect it wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be enough to buy the gasoline to ďŹ ll the tank.

3D guns and car parts

EMC Editorial - The story so far: Cody Wilson, who describes himself as a “cryptoanarchist” and almost certainly wears a Second Amendment belt-buckle, had a bright idea early last year. No government could ever oppress its people again, reasoned the 25-yearold law student at the University of Texas, if everybody in the world was able to manufacture their own guns at home. Well, not everybody in the world, exactly, but at least everybody with $8,000 to buy a 3D printer on e-Bay, or access to one of the 3D printing shops that are springing up in major cities. So Wilson set out to design a gun made entirely of high-density ABS plastic that could be printed on a standard 3D machine. He printed and tested it, and last week he made the blueprints available online. For those who are not clear on the concept (the rest may proceed in an orderly manner to the next paragraph), a 3D printer is basically a photocopying machine that sprays molten plastic instead of ink. But instead of doing only one layer on a sheet of paper, it does thousands of layers, one on top of the other, until it has formed a fully threedimensional object. Like a gun. There are not all that many 3D printers in circulation yet, but they are the Next Big Thing, and in five or ten years they may be as common as mobile phones. It would appear that a great many people are looking forward to that happy day, because in the first week after Wilson uploaded the blueprints for his gun, 100,000 people downloaded them. Wilson is one of those political innocents on the libertarian right who truly believe that governments would behave better if everybody had a gun. He even calls his plastic pistol the “Liberator.” He presumably hasn’t noticed that the United States government carries on collecting heavy taxes and crushing the spirit of free enterprise even though most Americans already have guns. Predictably, last Friday the U.S. government mobilised to shut his little enterprise down. The Office of Defense Trade Controls Compliance at the State Department wrote Wilson’s company, Defense Distributed, demanding that

Gwynne Dyer

his designs for a 3D gun be “removed from public access” until he proves that he has not broken the laws that govern the shipment of weapons overseas. (Is he really shipping weapons overseas? Don’t bother us with details.) The government took that route because there has been an instant public outcry about the “Liberator”—but Wilson already has a licence to manufacture and sell the weapon from the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. As for exporting the blueprints, he also registered his operation under the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), administered by the State Department, and has legal advice that it complies with the rules. But the genie is well and truly out of the bottle. There have not only been 100,000 downloads from Wilson’s own site. It has also been uploaded onto Pirate Bay (with no protest from him), and downloads from that site are going through the roof. So what does all this mean? It doesn’t mean that terrorists are more dangerous; they have never had any trouble in getting their hands on weapons a lot more lethal than a single-shot pistol. It does mean that people can now make weapons that will not be detected by this generation of airport metal detectors, so it may soon take even longer to get on the plane. But that was going to happen pretty soon anyway. What Cody Wilson has actually done is provide us with a useful wake-up call about the huge economic and security implications of this powerful new technology. The 3D printers will get better, faster and cheaper, and they will be able to produce much more impressive weapons. Forget about banning assault weapons; people will be able to make them at home. More important, they will also be able to 3D-print almost any other mass-produced item whose components are less than a metre (three feet) long. This not only has serious implications for retailers of such items—the WalMarts of the world—but also for entire countries whose economy depends heavily on manufacturing and exporting items of this sort. Even the cheapest labour is probably more expensive than 3D printing. So “outsourcing” will go out of fashion, but the impact of 3D printing on traditional employment patterns in the developed countries will be just as severe. Cars will continue to be built on (highly automated) assembly lines, but most of the companies in the supply chain will collapse as the car manufacturers start printing the parts themselves as and when they need them. Here comes the future again.


Please consider this carefully Dear Editor, This is a letter to the mayor of Belleville and council. Dear mayor and council, We have lost  two major landmarks in our downtown core: Hotel Quinte and BCI. Please, don’t add the Memorial Arena to that list. I am writing to implore and ask this council to seriously reconsider how you approach and vote on Agenda, 8.b, Consent, 8.b.1 - DISPOSAL OF SURPLUS LAND – 15 MARKET STREET (MEMORIAL ARENA). When voting, please consider that the number one decisive factor be the historical designation this building has to the city, province, country and world. Please also seriously consider that instead of selling the property, you strive to secure a long-term lease option.

Any option, apart from replacing the ice will come at a much greater cost than keeping the facility in its current form and would be a welcome sight to have it a bustle of activity and occupied versus sitting empty. This same council voted to support a similar effort presented by Mr. Lindenberg for the Kinsmen Pool and playgrounds, a decision I applaud and support. Both the Memorial Arena and Kinsmen Pool and playground provide recreation and a service to the community in the central, downtown area of our city.   Your every consideration to this request would be greatly appreciated.

The ebb and flow of intelligence By Terry Bush

EMC Editorial - In honour of Mother’s Day, I have to admit that my mother was occasionally right in the 55 years I’ve known her. In fact, the older I became, the smarter she seemed to get, especially when I was about halfway through my twenties. Funny how that works. When I was little, I thought my mom was probably the smartest person in the world. Nothing against my dad but he was off farming most of time while Mom was at home. And Father’s Day isn’t for another month. The first time I noticed her starting to slip a little was when I went off to school for Grade 1. It soon became apparent that the smartest person in my little world definitely had to be my teacher, Mrs. Bell, because she always had the answers to everyone’s questions. My mother, though still pretty bright, was only scoring around 98 per cent most of the time when answering my childish queries. In Grade 2, Mrs. McGee was really smart too I thought, mainly because she must have conferred with Mrs. Bell about her students and both decided that those of us sitting in the row on the right hand side of the classroom would be labelled “Beavers” because of our industrious ways and the majority of the class would serve their term as “Bunnies” with the row on the left hand side bringing up the rear as “Bees.” I don’t think Beavers were actually smarter than Bunnies or Bees but back in olden times, teachers saw no harm in calling it as they saw it, something that is definitely a no-no in today’s “everyone passes so they won’t have low self esteem” kind of world. Being a Beaver was pretty cool when I was six. It’s good for a laugh to this day especially when I run into my friend and classmate Debbie and we exchange Beaver stories which I’m sure gives people pause when they hear us jabbering on at a crowded event.  Anyway, back to my mother. She stayed in second place until the end of Grade 4 and then started to slide even more. By the time I finished Grade 8, she was tanking big time and when Grade 11 rolled around, she didn’t know much of anything anymore. How could she when I knew everything? I did my best to humour her but couldn’t help but roll my eyes at times and just shake my head. By the time I was in my late 20s, Mom had had a bit of a resurgence and occasionally even offered a bit of wisdom if anyone was listening. In my 30s, she started making even more sense and I must admit that I’m now regaling others with some of her quotes.  Time speeds up when you hit 35 I say, the same as she said to me. And it’s true; the weeks seem to go by quicker when you have more on your plate than just putting in time at a job and partying on the weekend. Ditto for getting more forgetful the older you get. It would be amusing for someone to walk in on a conversation between the over-sixty members of our staff and myself as we try to help one another finish sentences when we lose our train of thought. Now when we stand there dumbfounded and clueless, we just joke that we’ll give each other a call around 3 a.m. when we remember that name that escaped us. We’re all up then anyway toddling off the bathroom. The funniest thing has to be when Glenda, our production manager, forgets what she’s talking about and blames it on hanging out with a bunch of geezers. She’s not quite 35 yet but failing fast. I’m sure her kids will soon be thinking the same way I did, Mom just isn’t as sharp as she used to be. The eye rolling will start in a couple of years. Mom just won’t get it anymore and sooner or later, she’ll be the most uncool person in the world. And later in life, Mom will recover some of her brain cells and some of the things she mentioned along the way will be passed on to another generation. I can still remember what my mother said to me the day she dropped me off in my Grade 1 classroom. I was a very shy and nervous little boy and it was obviously a very scary experience for me. So, Mom, as usual, knew the perfect thing to say, “Look at all the little blonde girls in your class. You like blondes. You’ll have lots of fun.” And I did. Mom was right … as she usually was. I even married a blonde. Hopefully, one of these days some of my brain cells will get around to regenerating too. While I’m finally just about as smart as my mother was at my age, she still holds the advantage. She’s 83 and in her prime. I have some catching up to do.

High school musicians tune their skills at jazz workshop EMC Entertainment - Campbellford - A three-day jazz education workshop gave young musicians here the chance to tune their skills while meeting and learning from some of Canada’s finest jazz educators and performers. “It was my first time for something like this. It was such a great experience,” said Meaghan Steinman who plays trumpet with the Campbellford District High School (CDHS) Senior Jazz Band. This was the fourth year of the Prince Edward County Jazz Festival’s TD Jazz Education Program which involved students from four high school jazz bands including Centennial Secondary School, Belleville; St. Paul’s Secondary School, Trenton; O’Neill Collegiate, Oshawa and CDHS. “I worked with Jason Logue, a trumpeter,” said Steinman, who is in Grade 9. Logue lives in Toronto and leads his own band The Jason Logue Six and is described by Canadian Jazz Archive as being a frequent sideman in several orchestras such as Random Access and Dave McMurdo’s Jazz Orchestra, as part of the orchestra for musicals such as Hairspray and The Sound of Music, and backing up artists such as Diana Krall. “We did a lot of talking and discussing at the workshop. We

could ask questions about technique and he helped us with that stuff,” said Steinman. The students attending the workshop had been practising a couple of different tunes beforehand and played them while at the workshop. “He liked a lot of the stuff that we are doing but mainly the focus was on dynamics … playing really soft and loud at different points because that is what makes a music … backing off with our volume was the hardest thing,” she added. “It was nice to have an outside voice, a professional tell us what they thought of our music and telling us what we should work on. It was a positive atmosphere.”

“I worked with Jason Logue, a trumpeter.” For Steinman and the others from CDHS who attended it was an enthralling experience. Campbellford Rotary exchange student Carolin Christ from Germany was among the students who went to the workshop. She plays the clarinet and saxophone. “We learned a lot about how to play better. We had two saxophone workshops and so a professional was there for us to tell us how to have a better sound,

how to play better,” she commented. Juno award-winning musician John Johnson was among the jazz educators. He plays the saxophone, flute, clarinet, piccolo and harmonica. Peter Wowk, Grade 10, who plays the alto saxophone told Trent Hills Regional News, “Being up close with the professionals I really saw the difference in what I was playing and what I need to do to get to the next level. “I learned various things about the instrument I did not know beforehand some interesting tricks and techniques. It was a very rewarding experience being immersed with other players.” Other jazz educators included Barbra Lica (jazz musician, vocalist), Brian Barlow (drummer, percussionist, guitarist, producer from Belleville), Mike Francis (professional musician, guitar) and Kelsley Grant (jazz saxophonist). The clinicians did put on a show for the students. Capping off the three days of workshops and clinics was a concert at the historic Regent Theatre in Picton featuring the Brian Barlow Big Band along with the four participating school ensembles and vocalist Barbra Lica. Then each school performed as well, ending the workshop on a high note.

Cyclists to raise money for hospice

Kelly Isfan, the former CEO of Campbellford Memorial Hospital, raised $1,800 for the local hospice, which also received a $10,000 grant from the Healing Cycle Foundation. “I love to cycle and I want to support The Bridge,” said Mr. Pollack, who was a member of its board for three-and-a-half years. This year, his partner is Calvin Newman, chairman of the Campbellford Memorial Hospital Foundation, who’s also an avid cyclist. Mr. Pollack is a member of the Northumberland Hills Cycling Club, based in Cobourg, which organizes about five rides a week for its 100 members, the rides being anywhere from 20 to 100-plus kilometres. Northumberland County is an ideal place for cyclists, it has “great roads, low traffic [and] wonderful scenery,” Mr. Pollack said. Two of his fellow cycling club members, George Hussey, owner of Port Hope Bicycle, and Maria Garrett, joined him for a hospice fund raiser held at the Warkworth George Hussey, owner of Port Hope Bicycle, gave mini-tuneups at a clinic arena May 11 that included a bike clinic held May 11 at the Warkworth arena to help raise money for The Bridge and barbeque.

EMC News - Warkworth - Two weeks to imagine! Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the focus of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Artworth - the Trent Hills Summer Art Camp for children. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think Artworth is a growing organization. Every year we learn from what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done,â&#x20AC;? said Trish York, co-ordinator and one of the members of the steering committee that has pulled this together. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last year, for example, we had a Trillium grant that helped us with establishing a marketing plan and helped us make forays into the community around us,â&#x20AC;? she added. It was the second year the camp featured an artistic exchange with the children of Alderville First Nation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This year we are taking the kids further into their community exploring arts in the world around us by taking them to a sheep farm,â&#x20AC;? said York. The program includes reverse glass painting, pottery, mask, theatre sports, print making, drumming and physical theatre. As well the Warkworth Spinners and Weavers Guild will be teaching at Elmlea Farm in Havelock. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The kids will learn weaving, spinning, felting, cleaning, carding, dyeing, knitting â&#x20AC;Ś and get to meet some sheep and alpaca too.â&#x20AC;? Children and youth ages seven to 13 years will be able to learn from artists such as Monica Johnston (artistic director); Paulus Tjiang (glass artist); Pili Palm-Leis, (visual art, creative movement, drama and clowning); Trish York, Heidi Burkhardt (painter, potter, printmaker); Linda Kash (actress); Steafan Hannigan (musician); and Teresa McPherson (glass artist) all of whom will be teaching in Warkworth. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I see Artworth as a twofold approach. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like 100-mile art. We have artistic expression in our history and who we are and the spinning and weaving is part of that,â&#x20AC;? commented York. She sees Artworth expanding in another direction as well, into performance art. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This year we are lucky enough to have Linda Kash come and do theatre sports with the kids. Basically it is theatre improv,â&#x20AC;? she explained. Kash â&#x20AC;&#x153;brings a wealth of experience with her â&#x20AC;Ś she is just fun and zany.â&#x20AC;? Kash is celebrated Canadian opera star, the late Maureen Forresterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s daughter. Steafan Hannigan, of Baltimore, is a Celtic musician and specialist in world music, and he will be drumming with the kids. York continued to talk about the artists one by one and the talent and abilities they will be bringing to Artworth this summer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget we have some really great artists of our own right here,â&#x20AC;? she said.

land Cares for Children and Early Learning in Northumberland, is at the school on a regular basis to deliver these programs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Centre has been in existence for about 30 years now and we are where people who are looking for help for their children can come,â&#x20AC;? she told Trent Hills Regional News. The word is out there because doctors know about the centre and its programs, schools and teachers know, the health unit knows, said McMurray, but she is still hoping more will take advantage of what is available and not be afraid to just drop in. Each month Books to Go features a seasonal theme and a special gift, a book for each child to take home, explained McMurray. Since the program began last fall, only about a dozen children have shown up, a number McMurray is hop-

This month this is also an opportunity for children to meet MatMan, a ďŹ gure built from wood pieces. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He is quite engaging,â&#x20AC;? said McMurray with a grin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The children start to build shapes and then they move on to build letters, every letter of the alphabet. We talk about shapes and then start with the ďŹ rst letter of the childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name,â&#x20AC;? she explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vocabulary enhancing, spatial positioning and letter introducing,â&#x20AC;? said McMurray, who talked about MatMan as her â&#x20AC;&#x153;secret weapon,â&#x20AC;? to learning about letters and developing motor skills. The same programs are taking place at Colborne Public School. The school boards have

been very â&#x20AC;&#x153;receptiveâ&#x20AC;? to these programs, said McMurray. Girl Power is another but it is an after school program for girls ages ďŹ ve to ten. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We talk about what â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;self-esteemâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; really is [and bullying] and how to get it,â&#x20AC;? explained McMurray. In that particular program registration was necessary and it has already started.

Genre-busting guitarist at Cat Sass EMC Entertainment - Norwood - His music has been compared to Ry Cooder, Bonnie Raitt and Bruce Cockburn and local connoisseurs will get a chance to find out why Montreal native Noah Zacharin earns such heady praise for his guitar work and the poetry of his music. Zacharin and bass player Howard Baer will take the stage for a 7 p.m. gig at the Cat Sass Coffeehouse in Norwood on May 17. Zacharin, a McGill University dentistry graduate with a deep-rooted professional interest in public health, has released six recordings of â&#x20AC;&#x153;literate, well-crafted songs that know no barrier of genreâ&#x20AC;? and his most recent offering, Wait on Your Love, found national airplay on CBC and Radio-Canada. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s carved out an everexpanding musical niche that defies genres and musical barriers and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something listeners, fans, fellow musi-

cians and reviewers celebrate in Zacharinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whenever I hear Noah play it makes me want to turn home and practice,â&#x20AC;? says acclaimed performer Katherine Wheatley. Adds performer Lynn Harrison: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Noah Zacharinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s songs shine with uncommon depth, originality and wisdom. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A generous and soulstirring performer, his talent on the guitar is matched by his versatility as a vocalist and songwriter,â&#x20AC;? Harrison says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As a listener, I find myself continually moved by his music which reflects life beautifully in all its pain and joy.â&#x20AC;? And in a review of his 2002 CD Crow Dark Wind in the Minor 7th e-zine, Tom Semioli said it like this: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Like Bruce Cockburn, Ry Cooder and Bonnie Raitt, Noah Zacharin possesses a virtuoso command of the guitar to complement his thoughtful lyrics and wistful melodies.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Though a myriad of folk, acid-rock, jazz, blues, European and classical influences coalesce on this collection, Zacharinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s world-wise songwriting is the driving force [behind the CD].â&#x20AC;? And of his latest, reviewer David Gillis was unstinting in his praise. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This recording is a phenomenal feat,â&#x20AC;? Gillis said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;An effort that is spilling over with poetic imagery, original musical ideas, interesting production, creative musicianship,

but most of all, heart - tons of heart. Noah is a skilled painter of emotion, joy, bitterness, darkness and light.â&#x20AC;? Bassist Howard Baer will add even more rhythmic zest to the occasion. Much sought-after, Baer has had over 7,000 of his arrangements recorded, won a 2000 Juno award for album production and been nominated six more times. It should be a good night. The cover charge for the show is $5.

Highly regarded guitarist and singer-songwriter Noah Zacharin will do a show at the Cat Sass Coffeehouse in Norwood May 17 accompanied by bass player Howard Baer.

Shining show at OFSAA By Bill Freeman

EMC Sports - Chatham - For the second time in Norwood District High School history, badminton players have returned from the provincial championships with medals. The women’s doubles team of Emma Smith and Alana Reed earned a silver medal after advancing into the finals of “C” Flight division before finally losing to a tough duo from Toronto. Their progress through the flight was worth a coveted medal. The mixed doubles team of Jordan Burtt and Emma Baptie reached the quarter-finals of “B” Flight before they were eliminated. Had the duo won one more game they would have reached the medal round. Both pairs were COSSA gold medallists and took the court with confidence in Chatham. This is the fourth year in a row that NDHS had badminton players competing at the provincial championships. Reed and Baptie got a taste of OFSAA action last year.

Norwood James Gang get explosive start By Bill Freeman

EMC Sports - Norwood - The Norwood James Gang needed a quick start to their OLA Senior B lacrosse season and they got it. Norwood (3 - 0) is undefeated after hanging on to beat the Owen Sound Northstars 9 - 7 in an intense home opener Saturday night at the Asphodel-Norwood Community Centre. They started the weekend with a tight 12 - 9 win in Oakville over the Titans. The James Gang exploded for six straight first-period goals to start the game against Owen Sound including a hat trick by rookie Zac McIlmoyle, a 2009 Peterborough Junior A Lakers grad and Buffalo Bandits NLL draft

pick. Along with McIlmoyle’s three, newcomer and former Niagara Ice Dogs captain Mike Swift, Joel Wasson-McQuigge and Mike McNamara found the twine behind Northstars goalie Ryan Masters. Norwood continued its offensive fireworks in the second notching three in a row by Matt Evans, Kyle Clancy and Aaron Grayson straight. They built up a solid 9 - 1 lead that the feisty Northstars began to attack with a barrage of their own that produced five goals that narrowed the deficit to 9 - 6. Owen Sound managed one more goal in a rugged and physical third period from National Lacrosse League veteran Bryan Kazarian. Norwood’s John Martin and Owen Sound’s Shaen Kazarian had three head-to-head battles in the third starting with a disagreement early in the frame that led to a roughing penalty; two minutes later they dropped

the gloves and wrapped the night with another battle with 5:25 left to play, a skirmish that earned the pair game ejections. Thirteen Norwood players featured in the scoring with McIlmoyle and Grayson leading the way with four points. Angus Dineley, fresh off a stint with the NLL’s Philadelphia Wings, picked up the win in net. Pacing the Northstars were Rob Milnes and Curtis Gibbon with two goals each. Drew Barfoot and Mike McLeod also scored. Masters got the hook with three minutes left in the first period and was replaced by former St. Catharines Saints goalie Zach Bowen. In Oakville, it was a see-saw affair with the two teams knotted at 2 - 2 after the first and Norwood leading 7 - 6 after two periods of play. Scoring for Norwood in the first were McIlmoyle and Brock Boynton with Clancy Chad Evans, Mack



O’Brien, Jeremy Crowder and Mike McNamara scoring in the second. Three straight goals by McIlmoyle, Grayson and Clancy gave Norwood a 10 - 6 lead midway through the third period. The Titans Mike Gillan cut that lead to 10 - 8 with a pair of goals. Greg Reilly, from Mike Swift and Josh WassonMcQuigge made it 11 - 9 less than a minute later. Crowder rounded out Norwood’s scoring. Craig Robertson earned the win in net for the James Gang. James Gang buzz: Norwood takes on the Sarnia Beavers May 18 (4 p.m.) at the A-N Community Centre. The James Gang kept pace with defending champion St. Catharines sharing an unblemished record and first place in the OLA Sr. B loop. Chad Evans (2-13-15) is second in league scoring while Zac McIlmoyle (6-5-11) and Kyle Clancy (5-6-11) are tied for eighth.

Waste Diversion Ontario checks out the Big Blue Box By Kate Everson

EMC News - Trenton - A tour of the Recycling Plant on West Street was part of the package for the visiting CEO of Waste Diversion Ontario on May 8. “Good things are happening in small communities in Ontario,” Michael Scott said. “Waste Diversion Ontario is monitoring how effective recycling is across the province,” he said. “We monitor how they are managed, if they meet targets, address any issues of funding and think ahead of how we can divert more.” He said the complexity of the process is not known to most residents who simply put out their Blue Box every week. “It is important that taxpayers understand they are paying for half the cost of the Blue Box program,” he said. “The manufacturers pay the other half. It’s a $200-million-a-year program.” Some of the problems they are dealing with is that packaging is changing all the time. They replace equipment every five to ten years so it is hard to keep up. Different types of plastic are coming into the market and the labelling is changing. “Will we get producers to pay the whole cost of recycling?” he asked. “Right now manufacturers of computers, flat screen TVs and cellphones are paying millions for their own recycling. Used tires manufacturers are also paying. That is what is known as an eco-fee. It is a misunderstood fee. It is not a tax. Not one cent goes to the government. It is a fee by the manufacturer to recover costs.” He said the Trenton facility ranks among the highest recovery rates in the province. Challenges are in volumes. Terry Cassidy, chair of the Waste Herb Lambacher of HGC Management in Brantford will be taking over operations of the Quinte Waste Solutions in November.

Spring craft show maintains charm

EMC Lifestyles - Trenton - Artisans from across the Quinte area put their best creations forward for the annual Spring Show by the Quinte Region Craft Guild in the Knights of Columbus Hall Saturday. It was a sullen day for weather, but organizers were optimistic that weekenders might like to enjoy the results of some

of the area’s best craftspeople instead of working outdoors. Adding to the attraction was a free rose for all the mothers who attended. The guild has dozens of members representing many and varied craft activities, with some 30 displays in the main hall for the spring show. Organizers described it as “normal” for

the spring event, which is traditionally the smaller of the guild’s two annual shows. The main one will be in Bayside Secondary School on October 12, with a further pre-Christmas show November 2 and 3, back at the Knights of Columbus Hall. Craft skills represented included glass garden art, metal art, marble clocks, paintings on rocks, body protection products,

jewellery, hair accessories, woodworking, knitting, crocheting and sewing. Among those displaying was Belleville’s “Mr. Food Bank,” Charles Burghgraef, who displayed a wide range of delicate wood scroll works. “I was a brick layer,” he said, “until I developed a back problem.” He happened across wood scroll craft and has made a wide-

spread reputation for his fine work, done with scroll saw blades little larger than a needle. One work, a three-dimensional elk, requires special techniques, he explained, demonstrating how a pattern traced on a piece of wood could be carved into an exquisite three-dimensional work of art.

Prairie Oyster’s Keith Glass coming to Tweed

EMC Entertainment - Tweed Owner Lawrence Ramsay says he is very excited about Keith Glass coming to the Tweedsmuir on May 24.

“I asked Keith how he heard about the Tweedsmuir and the small town of Tweed and he said he was in Nashville and people were talking about the

live entertainment here. “For us this is a real feather in our cap and it is exciting to think that word has spread that far.”

Keith is a founding member of the band Prairie Oyster and has received much critical acclaim having won multiple Juno awards and CCMA awards. Prairie Oyster was inducted

into the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame in 2008 and Keith and his band mates were also recipients of the SOCAN lifetime achievement award. Keith was the guitarist in both the screen and stage pro-

ductions of Hank Williams; The Show He Never Gave. Keith’s band is called the Bad Dogs and they will be performing with him at the Tweedsmuir Tavern.

new contractor for this area starting in November. He said current employees will fill out applications to continue as existing staff, but there will be a new fleet of vehicles. “The operations will stay the same,” he said. Lambacher was in charge of the recycling for this area in 1991 for 11 years and said he is glad to be working here again. Things have changed since he had the first contract when the plant

started up. “This was the start of the Blue Box program,” he said. “We just had four separations: newspapers, beverage containers: aluminum, tin and glass and two-litre PET bottles. There was more sorting on the truck into more compartments. Now they do it all here. It’s a trade-off, but makes it quicker to load. It costs $100 an hour to drive the truck so we are saving in costs and efficiency.” Michael Scott, Councillor Terry Cassidy, Herb Lambacher, Rick Clow and William Mueller toured the plant.

Management Board, said this area has really bought into the Blue Box system. They are doing source separation and providing a cleaner product for the plant. “They make the effort,” he said. Cassidy noted that Belleville and Quinte West are launching an organic waste diversion this fall, helping reduce landfill costs. Herb Lambacher, president of HGC Management, will be the

A very “HOT” kickoff for Tourism Awareness Week

By Scott Pettigrew

EMC News - Tweed - The word “HOT” is an acronym for Hastings (County) Opportunities (in) Tourism. The enthusiasm of emcee Doug Stephenson was contagious as he started off a launch event at the Poplars Golf Course on May 10 for Tourism Awareness Week (TAW) where a number of business people and political dignitaries were in attendance. “We are here for HOT-TAW to promote Tourism Awareness Week and it is very important we work together,” said Stephenson. “I for one would like to take it one step further; we are all going to hash-tag HOT-TAW and we are all going to be on Facebook and at events throughout the week, but I say we pound the pavement and make it so people never forget what HOT and TAW are. Every opportunity we have, why not use HOT-TAW as an expression.” Doug went on to use HOT-TAW in several humorous ways and had the capacity crowd very entertained with his anecdotes. He introduced the visiting dignitaries including MP Daryl Kramp, MPP Todd Smith and Warden Rick Phillips. “Tourism Awareness Week is a great opportunity for residents to experience the local tourism attractions in our community,” said Warden Rick Phillips. “Tourism creates more than 2,500 full-time and part-time seasonal jobs and attracts over 1.5 million visitors who spend about $200 million in our communities annually.” The launch event for Tourism Awareness Week was organized by Tourism Development Co-ordinator Kasey Pollard who said the purpose of the kickoff

event was “… to help identify areas for tourism development, assess our competitive advantages and help Hastings County become a destination of choice. After last year’s launch at Farmtown Park and hosting a trade show that showcased local busi-

“I want to provide you with Creative Hastings Unplugged.” nesses, we came up with a new approach for 2013; this year we’ve decided to focus on getting people out to the businesses so they can enjoy the shops, hospitality and experiences firsthand.” Andrew Redden is the economic development officer for Hastings County and he

took the opportunity to talk about Creative Hastings. “I want to provide you with Creative Hastings Unplugged. We have had Creative Hastings take place over the last year which is an evening full of a talk about the creative economy where we introduce creative entrepreneurs for three minutes each to talk about who they are, and their business. This evening we have invited four speakers who will do short ‘elevator speeches’ about their businesses.” The guest speakers included Poplars Golf Course Owner Jack Gorman, Karen Enright of Enright Cattle, Trevor Telford from the Black River Retreat and Deborah Richardson from Drum Nation Festival who brought a large contingent of drummers.

Turtles in Ontario are disappearing! Seven of the eight species of Ontario’s turtles are now listed as “Species at Risk.” Turtles are critical to the health of our freshwater ecosystems. With your help, Kawartha Turtle Trauma Centre can win $100,000 to fund their “From the Road … to Recovery: One Year of Turtle Conservation in Action” project. These muchneeded funds will be used in the

following ways: • Provide emergency medical and rehabilitative care to injured native turtles. • Incubate and hatch young turtles from eggs collected or harvested from injured adult female turtles admitted to the hospital. • Deliver Turtle Education programming, which encourages Ontarians to become wetland stewards and to see the valuable

role turtles play to our freshwater ecosystems. • Field study using Headstarting as a conservation tool by raising, releasing and then using radio telemetry to track threatened Blanding’s Turtles. • To increase and strengthen partnerships within the scientific community, both locally and globally, to collect and contribute data on the current state of turtle

populations. Kawartha Turtle Trauma Centre, <>, is Ontario’s only wildlife hospital dedicated to the medical care and rehabilitation of Ontario’s native turtle species with the goal of releasing them back into their natural habitat. KTTC is a registered charity and relies on grants and donations from the public to fund its work.

Some great Canadian road trips, both near and far By John M. Smith

EMC Lifestyles - Now that we’ve finally warmed up here in Ontario, our thoughts have turned to such things as spring flowers, cutting the grass, gardening and a summer holiday trip. As you probably already know by now, I’ve been fortunate to check out a lot of this great big world, but don’t forget that we have many great opportunities for exploration right here in our very own beautiful and diversified country. Here’s a list of some Canadian road trips to consider, both near and far: Near: Sandbanks Provincial Park - We can walk far out into Lake Ontario, partake in a swim and a picnic, and enjoy magnificent sand dunes right here in “The County.” I used to tell my unbelieving students that it was even better than Hawaii’s Waikiki Beach! It’s a great camping spot too. 1000 Islands - Take a boat cruise amidst these fascinating islands from either Kingston or Gananoque and perhaps add a stop at Boldt Castle on Heart Island. Upper Canada Village - In this 1860s-era village near Morrisburg, we witness what life was like back in “the good old days.” Costumed interpreters perform agricultural and commercial chores, and the whole family can even take a horse-drawn wagon ride. You’ll visit a church, school, tavern, bakery, steam-powered flour mill, and a blacksmith shop. Algonquin Provincial Park - We’re very fortunate to have this beautiful park of 7,725 square kilometres so near to us. It’s a great place for family camping, hiking, biking, and participating in a wildlife adventure such as a wolf howl, fishing, or simply looking for bear and moose. African Lion Safari - Near Cambridge is this exciting drive-through park, where the whole family can enjoy seeing such animals as lions, monkeys, giraffes, and zebras roaming around freely within the 750-acre area. Niagara Falls - The actual falls itself is well worth seeing, but there’s also a plethora of attractions and activities available in the area. There’s also a wonderful, scenic drive along the Niagara Parkway to nearby Niagara-onthe-Lake. Far: The Viking Trail, Newfoundland - This 450-kilometre one-way trip takes you from Deer Lake, through Gros Morne National Park, and along Newfoundland’s rugged coastline to the northern tip of the island. Be sure to check out L’Anse Aux Meadows, which was visited by Vikings as early as the 11th century, establishing the first European settlement in North America. Prince Edward Island National Park, Prince Edward Island - Explorer Jacques Cartier referred to Prince Edward Island as “the fairest land ‘tis possible to see,” and your excursion to this “fair land” should include a drive along the Gulf Shore Parkway, offering you views of magnificent saltwater beaches and sweeping sand dunes along the Gulf of St. Lawrence. Be sure to check out Cavendish, Stanhope, and North Rustico. You’ll find the headquarters of Prince Edward Island National Park at Dalvay and a protected colony of great blue herons on nearby Rustico Island. The Cabot Trail, Nova Scotia - Renowned inventor Alexander Graham Bell once said that “I have seen the Canadian and American Rockies, the Andes and the Alps and the Highlands of Scotland, but for simple beauty, Cape Breton outrivals them all.” Begin your 295-kilometre loop at Baddeck, where you’ll want to check out the Alexander Graham Bell Historic Park, and then head north to Margaree Harbour, with its magnificent view of the Northumberland Strait; Cheticamp a French Acadian village; Cape Breton Highlands National Park with its awesome hiking

Cyclists on the Icefields Parkway.

trails; Cape North, the trail’s northernmost point; Ingonish, one of the oldest settled areas on the Atlantic seaboard, and then back to Baddeck. The Qu’Appelle Valley, Saskatchewan - According to native legend, a young brave yelled out “Qu’appelle?” (“Who’s calling?”) as he rushed back to his dying girlfriend, and supposedly his voice can still be heard echoing across the Qu’Appelle Valley. It’s a marvellous, glacier-etched sunken garden stretching across much of southern Saskatchewan. The Icefields Parkway, Alberta The 290-kilometre one-way trip from Jasper to Banff, through the heart of the Rockies, is my personal favourite. The route includes two spectacular mountain passes, Sunwapta and Bow, and a stop at the Columbia Icefield, where you can take a snowcoach onto the largest icecap south of the Arctic. You’ll find incredible side trips on wonderful hiking trails to such inspirational points as Athabasca Falls, Bridal Veil Falls, Peyto Glacier, and Parker Ridge. Vancouver Island - There’s a great road route from Victoria to Tofino, where you’ll find the awesome Pacific Rim National Park Reserve, with its lush rainforests and rugged coastline. Recommended stops along the way include Butchart Gardens with its spectacular floral displays, Nanaimo with its tasty Nanaimo bar trail and bathtub races, and MacMillan Provincial Park with its Cathedral Grove, a highwayaccessible and magnificent old growth Douglas fir forest. There are, of course, many other wonderful Canadian road trips worthy of our consideration both near home and far away. Just get out there and enjoy our awesome country!

There’s a great walkway/trail through a Douglas fir forest on the way to Tofino, B.C., in MacMillan Provincial Park.

Public safety should always come first

Reality Check:

Sheila Wray Gregoire EMC Lifestyles - I want to live in a world where you can go for a test drive with people interested in buying your truck without getting kidnapped. I want to live in a world where a teenage girl can accept a ride from a friend’s

father without winding up a captive for ten years. I want to live in a world where you can send your children to kindergarten without worrying that they will be shot. But we don’t live in such a world, because we are far more concerned with rights than we are with public safety. Now I am a fierce advocate for freedoms like freedom of speech, because without freedom society disintegrates into tyranny. But I also believe in the right to life, and when someone has consistently demonstrated that they do not value life, public safety should come first. Take the way we deal with the mentally ill. When family members feel threatened they have no recourse, because it’s very difficult to commit someone to hospital. Most mentally ill people aren’t violent, of course, but when family members become scared, where can

The Good Earth: EMC Lifestyles - Gentle Reader, a weed is a plant growing in the wrong place. Here a few that receive fewer mentions than the dandelion but we all know them. The jury is still out on whether or not they are, indeed, a weed. What do you think? Echium vulgare    Viper’s Bugloss, Blueweed - invades meadows, pastures; - has interesting potential for treating some mental disorders; - sharp spines that lodge in the skin and become infected, like cactus; - the absolute best exotic for bees; - perfect for xeriscaping large areas; - €1.62 for a 200-seed packet in England, a noxious weed in parts of Canada. I’m sitting on the fence with this one probably because it is one of the few “weeds” not growing on my estate.   Portulaca oleracea  Common purslane, Neverdie, Red Pigweed - difficult to control: many seeds and broken bits will become a new plant;

- high in vitamin C and is often used in salads; - a nuisance in cultivated fields and vegetable gardens; - 92 medicinal uses listed in Wikipedia, plus a caution that it contains heart attack causing toxins. Dan’s commentary: Not be confused with Portulaca grandiflora, a popular flower plant, aka Moss Rose. You might be seeing this in unmulched gardens, veggie and flower alike. You should not be seeing this in your lawn; if you are, get a book about growing good grass. Control and/or harvest is the same: let it get big enough to easily pull out the entire plant. Consign to a hot-pile compost or dice into a salad; your choice. (I don’t recommend the latter but some literature makes that suggestion.) If you have a strong heart but lots of other problems, then this is the herb for you.   Stellaria media  Common Chickweed

they turn? We must do a better job of helping these people and their families so that things like the Newtown tragedy won’t happen. But what about those who are just plain evil, like Ariel Castro, who held three women captive for a decade? What can be done about monsters like that? How about coming down hard the first time someone is violent? This guy did not grab three women out of the blue; he decided to turn his ex-wife black and blue first. He broke her nose, dislocated her shoulder, and shoved her down stairs. She met the man she would marry at one of her many trips to the emergency room. Perhaps if we treated domestic violence more seriously this guy would have either been locked up or on a watch list. Yet in reading his story something else strikes me. Apparently he came from a very rough childhood. That does

not in any way excuse what he did; most people who grow up in rough childhoods grow into wonderful adults. Nevertheless, I have yet to read a story of a horrific murderer or sexual offender who came from a healthy background. So I have to ask: what are we doing to protect children? I have several friends who are foster parents, and what I have witnessed has made me completely lose faith in our system. I have seen toddlers come into care who are already violent. They’re confused, and they’re angry, and they can be mean. And yet they are also just little children who want to be cuddled. In foster care they begin to flourish.   But I have seen judges, again and again, send these kids back to parents who messed them up in the first place, despite Children’s Aid pleas to give these kids a chance. Parents’ rights, even if they have starved their kids, caused

If in your lawn, get a good book about growing grass. Cerastium glomeratum  Mouseeared Chickweed, Sticky Chickweed Dan’s note: A little bit confusing here. C. glomeratum, C. fontanum, C. vulgatum which one might think is better applied to Stellaria media, have all been used for the same plant. - grows in dry sandy areas, moist depression, woodlands and open meadows;

- rabbits, sparrows and bees enjoy the fruits of this plant; - best control is to grow good grass (read the book), hoe before setting seed, mulch in bare spots. Dan’s commentary: IMHO, both chickweeds are weeds. I don’t need to grow fodder for sheep, I don’t want bunny rabbits on my lawn and there are a lot of other plants for sparrows and bees. Plantago major, Plantago lanceolata, common plantain and buckhorn plantain respectively. Also “white man’s foot” for reasons similar to - toothaches, mouth sores, insect stings (chew a leaf and press the green, gooey, gummy mess on the bite.

No going in and out of the system for years before being placed up for adoption; they’d go up early, when they’re two, and when a lot of love can make such a big difference. If I ran the world, men who were violent against women would be punished severely and put on a permanent watch list so that when someone went missing, their house would be searched automatically. If I ran the world, people who were violent would not get multiple chances. We would say, “The safety of a 14-yearold girl matters more than the rights of a 40-year-old abuser.” Because the innocent deserve better. And we, as a society, have failed them.

It might be an unwanted plant but it tells you a lot about soil conditions, e.g. really does well in compact soil so if you got it, maybe it’s time for aeration. It is easily managed in both lawns and gardens so it should not be a nuisance. If you have it in your grass … get the book.

Jamming on a Sunday afternoon By Judy Backus

musicians, all of whom clearly enjoy themselves while entertaining an appreciative audience, with many enjoying a turn or two around the busy dance floor. A total of 15 entertainers, from as far away as Kingston, signed up to perform with one of the two stage bands. As event chair Leo Provost said midway through the afternoon, “We’ve had packed houses with an average of 160 people. It’s been a real excellent year!” This particular jam session included a free buffet meal of sal-

ads, cold meat, buns and squares, intended to show the club’s appreciation to both the performers and members of the audience for their ongoing support. One couple, Isabella and Cyril Shaw, who attend on a regular basis, indicated they felt that Marmora was the country music capital of the area, with Cyril saying, “I just love going to the jam sessions. They’ve got the best one in the area!” Money raised during the events is used by the Lions in support community services.

Barb Bamber, of Belleville, was one of 15 musicians to entertain with one of two stage bands on May 12 during the Marmora Crowe Valley Lions Club’s final jam session of the season. Her choices of music included Coat of Many Colours which resulted in a crowded dance floor.

EMC Entertainment - Marmora - The Marmora Crowe Valley Lions Club final jam session of the season ended on a high note on May 12 when 185 people from both the local area and beyond dropped by the community centre for an afternoon of country music.

Nurses celebrate Nurses Week and VON Week

EMC News - Belleville National Nurses Week was celebrated at the VON offices in Hastings, Northumberland and Prince Edward County on May 6 to 12 followed by VON Week. “I get satisfaction in helping people get better,” said VON nurse Melanie Hayes working out of the clinic at 47 South Pinnacle Street in Belleville. “Our clinic is funded by the Community Care Access Centre,” Melanie added. “It helps all ages, from children to seniors.” Melanie has been a Registered Nurse for 12 years in Belleville, doing home care before the clinic was set up five years ago. She says she enjoys working with people and helping them maintain their health. She adds that people are very appreciative of the services offered at the clinic. They can come there for wound care, intravenous therapy, chemo injections and other services that save them

from going to a doctor or a hospital. “They don’t have to keep going back to emerg where it is all clogged up,” she notes. The clinic is by appointment and is open 365 days a year, seven days a week. Four VON registered nurses work in shifts to make sure someone is there all the time. “The VON still do home care for people but only if necessary,” she says. “The clinic is available for anyone who is ambulatory [able to walk].” The clinic serves a 30-mile radius from Belleville. Staff work on ten-hour shifts and get to know their clients who appreciate a familiar face. “We need more funding from Community Care providers,” admitted Melanie. “We are under funded for the work we do.” She said the budget is always under funded compared to hospitals. “It’s a tough thing,” she said. “We are stretched so thin.” VON is a national not-

for-profit health care organization and registered charity. Since its inception in 1897, VON has been committed to caring for individuals through an expanding assortment of health and community support programs. VON Hastings,

Northumberland, and Prince Edward VON Hastings, Northumhas been in operation in the Quinte area berland, and Prince Edward since 1917 and is staffed by over 600 serves thousands of clients employees and volunteers, who oversee providing services that help the operation of approximately 30 programs and services.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Starsâ&#x20AC;? concert serves up the best of Festival By Richard Turtle

EMC Entertainment - Stirling Many of the top performers in last monthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Stirling Festival of Sacred Praise wrapped up the 63rd annual event last Friday night with the traditional Stars of the Festival concert. Musicians, singers and choirs and orators impressed the crowd and concert officials who were there to present numerous Festival awards. Once again there was a very strong showing of local talent, says Festival Committee President Donna Russett. The event is hosted by St. Paulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s United Church in Stirling each

year in late April and regularly draws participants from as far away as Verona, Picton and Peterborough. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The numbers were down a little bit from last year,â&#x20AC;? she says of Festival participation, in part because of a lack of entries in school choir categories, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but we expect to see that come back up again.â&#x20AC;? And with more than a dozen participants moving on to the provincial level, she adds, the competition featured several exceptional performances. The Festival has long been a vehicle for young and talented

performers to express themselves in song and music with many returning year after year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wonderful to see them grow,â&#x20AC;? Russett says. Awards were handed out throughout the evening and at the close of the concert, she spoke of one such performer when presenting the Stirling Festival of Sacred Praise Scholarship. It was many years ago that Mike Brogee first appeared onstage as a performer there and in a brief address to the crowd Russett recalled one of those memorable moments before presenting him with the Festivalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top award. Brogee, who

has been joined onstage at the festival by both his siblings and parents over the years, marked his final competition there as a youth. He has been accepted into Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s engineering program, and plans to start there in September. In support of the scholarship, organizers are also hosting an upcoming benefit concert featuring violinist Sebastian Sallans, who will be returning for his third Silver and Gold performance, and pianist Petya Stavreva, on June 8.

Veteran’s service medal a mystery By Diane Sherman

EMC News - Madoc - Local veteran Don Ash is turning 91 years old in July. Forty years ago he found a service medal belonging to a Private David Brockie, who was killed in France in 1915. Retired teacher Charles Gordon and past president of the national Royal Canadian Legion Jack Frost did some research and found that Brockie’s mother’s name was Annie, and she

was living in Hobkirk, Roxburgh, Scotland, at the time Brockie enlisted to go out with the 29th Battalion to France. Address of next of kin was given as Hawthornside, Harwick, Scotland. Apparently, Brockie’s two sisters immigrated to California with one sister eventually coming to Montreal. Private Brockie served only four weeks overseas and was killed by machine

gun fire. Ash, Gordon and Frost recognize the medal had to have been issued to “someone” after Brockie was killed. Gordon said he has come near an end with online research and would have to go in person to search archives. Don Ash says he’s not getting any younger, and would like to solve the mystery of how this particular medal came to be in his back yard.

David Brockie was born December 12, 1878, wounded in action at Trench E.6, November 4, 1915. He died two days later from his wounds and is buried at the Bailleul Communal Cemetery Extension in France. If you have any ideas pertaining to this search for solutions please email <> or call Branch 363 Royal Canadian Legion, Madoc, with a message for Mr. Ash.

This is the coin-sized medallion Don Ash found some 40 years ago in Madoc. The ribbon was added by Veterans Services in Ottawa, though current research indicates Private David Brockie had no connections to the village of Madoc. Records indicate he had settled in western Canada and had sisters in Montreal and California. Photo: Diane Sherman

Artist bringing her felt creations Art in the Park By Sue Dickens

EMC Lifestyles - Campbellford Artists and artisans will gather this weekend for the third annual Warkworth Art in the Park Juried Show and Sale at Old Mill Park. One of these artists is Suzanne Towns, a felt maker who is inspired by the outdoors. “The source of my inspiration comes from nature so texture, shape, colour and that sort of thing … from there it evolves,” she said while being interviewed at her home on ten acres of property just north of Campbellford, where she lives with her husband.

“I have always been dallying in the creative world … sometimes I am struck by whimsical or spiritual possibilities.”

Her artistic abilities are not only in felt making. She has taken courses in wire sculpture and silversmithing and enrolled in an oil painting course in Warkworth too. “As a child creatively I was always drawing,” she said. “I have always been dallying in the creative world … sometimes I am struck by whimsical or spiritual possibilities.” And when she is not felt making or teaching felt making, she busies herself in other ways that are interesting. Currently she is taking a certified canine massage therapy course. Yes, she loves animals and has dogs and cats of her own. She did obedience training for dogs in Campbellford for a number of years. Now she does only private lessons at her home. But for those who want to see her works of art with felt she will be at Art in the Park in Warkworth this weekend, along with many others showing and selling their creations. Art in the Park takes place Saturday, May 18, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, May 19, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is free. For more information go to: <http://>.

This is also where her studio is located and where she conducts workshops on felt making. “Felt is the first textile known to man; it dates back to the nomadic people,” she commented. This ancient art has attracted Towns so much that she decided to learn the process in its purest form. Self taught, she described the intensive labour involved in felt mak-

ing. “Using sheep’s fleece the technique is called wet felting and it is when you combine water and soap and the wool fibres that are laid in layers so you get the fibres to intertwine,” she explained, making it all sound so easy. But it’s not. Combining layers of wool roving into one flat piece of felt fabric takes time and patience. “That surprises a lot of people when they take my workshop,” she noted. For Towns though it is all part of the creative process. “It takes several hours to do a scarf and it’s all hands on. There is no sewing involved and it involves a lot of kneading,” she explained. “When I made this scarf, for example, I chose to dye with natural dyes so that makes the process even longer,” she added, pointing to a scarf with silk and felt fibres. “I like wool because I like what you can do with it but first of all I like the fact that it is a renewable resource,” she commented. Towns creates three dimensional vessels, scarves, bags and wall hangings and she does them all without a pattern. Some of her work can be found at Eclectic Mix in Warkworth and the Impresario Artisan Market in Cobourg and she also sells online.
