Italian Feast a hot ticket item

By Sue Dickens

EMC News - Norwood - The splash pad campaign has raised a total of $55,700 to date. Announcement of the money raised was made at the official kickoff to the proposed splash pad. It was held at the town hall in Norwood on the annual Victoria Day Weekend just before the Lions Club hosted the annual Italian Feast. Lion Ron Scott was emcee of the event where he recognized some of the donors who were on hand with their contributions for the campaign. A giant thermometer used as a backdrop will be set up on the lawn of the Norwood United Church so everyone can view the progress in the campaign. The Norwood Lions Club and its partners in this venture are convinced that this facility will be a big benefit to the community and will provide a recreational activity that will not only attract visitors on a daily basis but will also make Norwood a more attractive place for permanent residents, Scott told Trent Hills Regional News.  The campaign goal is $300,000.

EMC News - Hastings - Replacement of the Hastings swing bridge, scheduled to begin next January, has been delayed a year, and now won’t take place until 2015. Another call for tenders to design the new bridge has become necessary because “the successful bidder found that they could not do it for the price that they thought they could,” Northumberland-Quinte West MP Rick Norlock told reporters at a news conference held May 15. He said “further investigation” by the company into “new design ramifications” and “engineering requirements that had changed” resulted in a revised estimate that was “significantly more than 15 per over the anticipated cost,” and Treasury Board rules “require that the contract be re-let” under such circumstances. Mr. Norlock called the setback “a huge disappointment … but some things are beyond your control.” The MP said he had met with Environment Minister Peter Kent more than once “to brainstorm” how the fed-

eral government could keep to the construction schedule it had committed to but it “came from the highest level” that Treasury Board rules cannot be broken. The rules are there “to keep everything honest, to make sure that contracts aren’t played around with,” and they were put in place “because of misuse in the past.” A new contract will be awarded in August. The design work is expected to last five months, after which the call will go out for a contract to build a new swing bridge. The structure will be fabricated offsite during the summer of 2014 with installation to follow beginning in January 2015 and continuing for six to eight weeks, Mr. Norlock said. The timetable was set to avoid both the boating season and Christmas sales, when merchants make most of their profits, he said, but even so “there will be significant disruption to the way of life” for local businesses and residents. Trent Hills Mayor Hector Macmillan asked what con-

fidence the federal government has in the short-term repairs that were made to the bridge last year Mr. Norlock said they “will be sufficient for this year” but the structure will be re-inspected “to make sure the bridge remains safe for vehicular traffic.” Mayor Macmillan said it was “unreasonable that the Treasury Board did not have some exception under an emergency situation” that would allow for the design work to continue as submitted. “The auditor-general would be really upset if we tried to finagle things,” Mr. Norlock said. “Everybody has been acting in good faith,” including the successful bidder, he said. The mayor thanked the MP for his efforts, noting the village is still going to get a new bridge, “it’s just going to be another year.” Parks Canada has budgeted $4.5 million for the bridge’s design and construction. “At this point we’re anticipating that’s more than Please see “Hastings” on page 4

Nibi Mosewin Gii-Taasamong Manominiiking Rice Lake comes to Hastings By Sue Dickens

EMC News - Hastings - Celebrating and honouring their ancestors, natives were joined by non-natives in the fourth annual Water Awareness Walk (Nibi Mosewin Gii-Taasamong Manominiiking) around Rice Lake. “We pray for the water. We sing to the water. Water is life … the walk is about bringing awareness,” said Liz Osawamick, lead water walker, who along with Georgie HortonBaptiste and Shirley Williams (Elder and water walk spokesperson) helped organize the event. About 120 people gathered in keeping with tradition, on Mother’s Day weekend, for the send off, the traditional water Walkers in the fourth Annual Water Awareness Walk travelled along Highway 45 near Merrill Road on their three-day walk around Rice Lake, which included a stop in Hastings. The Water Staff is carried by Corey Jacobs, a member of Wikwemikong Unceded Indian Reserve, Manitoulin Island. His mother is lead walker, Liz Osawamick, who is also a member of Wikwemikong.

enough to complete the project,” said Jewel Cunningham, director of Ontario Waterways. Mr. Norlock stressed “it’s the process, not the availability of funds” that is responsible for the delay. Deputy-mayor Bob Crate also expressed disappointment over the delay but said: “I don’t think it’s going to be a hardship [for the community].” Mr. Norlock said “what it does is add to the anxiety,” particularly among older residents, because people have “geared up” for the bridge’s installation this winter. Now, “it’s going to be another winter so it’s like a letdown.” Ms. Cunningham said “it’s unfortunate” what happened but Parks Canada is committed to having the work completed in 2015 and will keep the public informed “all the steps along the way” to installing a new bridge “that will last for the next 50 years.”

ceremony down by the lake at the Old Railroad Stop, Hiawatha First Nation. In keeping with First Nations ceremonial protocol, women were respectfully asked to wear long skirts and men to wear long pants. Children were welcome. “We probably had over 200 walkers throughout the weekend and the people came from all over, Toronto, Hamilton, Manitoulin Island, Ottawa, Walpole Island, Thunder Bay and surrounding Kawarthas,” said Osawamick, who begins her email correspondence with the Ojibwe word “Aanii” (Hi) and concludes with the Ojibwe word “Miigwech” (thank you). Total distance walked was approximately 108 kilometres and the route took walkers to Keene, Hastings, Alderville, Bewdley, Bailieboro and Bensfort Bridge to name a few of the places. The walk took three days with lunch breaks and stops for water blessings. Horton-Baptiste got involved with the walk in its first year. “When Liz called me four years ago for the first water walk for me I was thinking what the heck is a water walk? So the first year it didn’t mean anything to me but I went because I wanted to be part of the community,” she told Trent Hills Regional News. “At that time I made a conscious decision it was time to get to know my people, the customs, the traditions,” she added, so the second year she helped organize the event. “By then I had heard of the Mother Earth Water Walks even then it didn’t mean anything to my heart.” Then last year, the third year of the walk, she had a revelation. “I thought about my ancestors and what water meant to them … they built their communities along the waterways … they were their roadways,” she said as she continued to talk about the importance of this. “Right now any First Nations community is beside water.” Ojibway people were “fishers more than hunters,” she added, noting that fish and wild rice “fed my people for centuries.” For Horton-Baptiste, “walking is how my ancestors got around … it’s like a forgotten art.” Walking, she said, reminded her of her place in creation. For Horton–Baptiste, a full-blooded Ojibway, the water walk was a way to honour her ancestry and how her people lived. “I have been learning about the traditional beliefs of my people and how water fits in,” she said. “Water is always a central point in a traditional family.” The walk itself, in spite of inclement weather went well. “It was a very healing water walk for all those who took part,” concluded Osawamick.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Complaints about Hydro outages unwarranted

Dear Editor, It seems there is at least one person in the area who is still not pleased with Hydro’s efforts to restore power during the ice storm. He claims that “facts are facts” but there is nothing correct in his so-called facts about the outage. We do not live in a Utopia where every town, village, and hamlet has a fully equipped hospital, fire department, police station, and Hydro repair facility. The province is equipped to deal with the routine power outages that take place from time to time, but when disaster strikes, it takes time to deal with such extensive

problems. Anything on a larger scale would make electrical energy unaffordable to all of us. We have relatives in western Ontario, and in some of those areas, Hydro workers were as hard pressed as here when it came to outages. Hydro does its best to get help to where it’s needed, but with roads coated with ice and/ or blocked by downed trees, this all takes time. And it takes time to bring in crews from across the border. Arrangements must be made, and the assisting utility must ensure that all its needs and emergencies are taken care of before dispatching crews to

Ontario. The extent of the outage overwhelmed the Hydro emergency phone system with tens of thousands of calls from across the province. Again, we are dealing with a system that functions as expected about 99 per cent of the time. I’ve used it on a number of occasions and always found it most satisfactory. The remarks about crews not working 24 hours a day is beyond ridiculous. They are allowed a maximum of 16 straight hours before getting eight hours rest, and they would be lucky if that gives them five hours sleep what

with travel time, meals, showers, change of clothes, etc. You can’t work tired and expect to be safe with your elbow within inches of 44,000 volts; I know because I’ve been there on one or two occasions. I spoke to one crew in Stirling that was on its fifth, 16 on and eight off shift in a row, and that’s no picnic. Despite what has been said, Hydro does keep track of the quality of equipment throughout the province, and can pull this data from their computers at a moment’s notice. The problem is that there is neither the manpower or the money to replace every-

thing that is at risk. Perhaps the complainers who want this utopian Hydro system might wish to pay double on their Hydro bills to make this happen. As to the rural customers being last in line for restoration, that’s the way the grid system works. Sometimes this is called doing things for the greater good. The grid supplies power to major centres like Belleville via its 230,000-volt supply lines, steps down the supply to 44,000 volts for distribution in and around the city, and then out to the rural distribution stations where the voltage is dropped to 4,000 volts. If

repairs are made first in the rural areas, they won’t have power until the repairs closer to the source (Belleville T.S.) have been completed. Meanwhile, thousands of people in Belleville would remain in the dark, and perhaps the hospital might be depending on emergency generators. The work is done logically by starting where the population density is greatest (and is the power source), then proceeds outward from there to the least populated areas.

Dear Editor, The Bangladesh tragedy is a symptom of the ongoing corporate push for greater profits. It is not an isolated incident and it is a global problem. Three cents per T-shirt is about as low as it gets currently, surpassing Haiti where western interests have overthrown democratically elected governments for raising the minimum wage. The minimum wage is an interesting concept. In Canada we have set a limit below which we consider it illegal to employ workers; I wonder if anyone has

ever been prosecuted. We do have exceptions; at harvest times imported farm labourers work harder than most but are not covered, and if you brought in temporary workers for other work from low wage countries they were excluded. This allowed employers to reduce costs by avoiding employing Canadians.  The Chinese miners brought in to extract our resources are paid half of current rates in the industry. The thousands of fast food joints in Canada use nonCanadian workers at 15 per cent lower wages and of course the

financial sector examples also improve profit margins. Abroad, Germany has a strike on its hands, as 9,000 workers, many recruited from Greece and Spain working at below minimum for <Amazon.com>, are demanding minimum wage in that country. Perhaps the greatest damage in this maximum profit philosophy is the planet itself and our future on it. The tar sands seem to be always in the news as most people see massive environmental destruction and pollution as inextricably linked to it. This week we

have a news item “Suncor accidentally released 350,000 litres of toxic waste into the Athabaska River.” I find the phrase itself puzzling. How do you accidentally release something like this? A dog maybe breaks its collar, someone leaves the gate open and the cows get out perhaps. Does this phrase mean the toxic waste pond was constructed next to the river, with a tap or sluice gate built in, with an employee accidentally ordered to open it? Where is Natural Resources Canada in this picture? Apparently our protector of the envi-

ronment is busy spending $16.5 million in advertising, (up from $9 million last year) mostly promoting lies to Americans about how we really are looking after nature, in order to get rid of Alberta bitumen as quickly as possible with more pipelines. The ads claim that emissions have dropped by 26 per cent from 1990-2011 when in fact they have increased by 300 per cent. (Emissions per barrel have decreased by 26 per cent, but totals have increased dramatically.) The ads claim we have also “strengthened our environmental

protection,” when in fact the omnibus bill “gutted” it. Still this Conservative BS is what we have come to expect, and so it passes here almost unnoticed. As one government minister claimed on radio this week another $25 million for Action Canada ads or $20 million are “just tiny amounts in the overall budget” not worth worrying about. Canada has done away with the penny, how long before the dollar bill is too small to bother with.  Paul Whittaker, Gilmour

Global governance is sorely lacking

Lessons not learned Dear Editor, History teaches us that a characteristic weakness of the human race is the well-demonstrated inability or blatant refusal to learn from the lessons of history. Many of the ramifications of the senate scandal have surfaced in the media and I have no doubt that others will come to light in the near future. A case in point has to do with the allegations of malfeasance that have been recorded against Senator Mike Duffy and others who have been involved including Mr. Nigel Wright who recently resigned his position as Chief of Staff to Mr. Ste-

phen Harper. I am of the opinion that a significant number of your readers may recall the following excerpt from the works of Sir Walter Scott (1771-1832) quote: “Oh What a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive.” Sad to say it appears that those words of wisdom were not learned or were not understood by those who are involved or who are yet to be identified as participants in the scandal. We have seen what can best be defined as the tip of the iceberg; stay tuned! Smooth sailing, P.H. (Phil) Etter, Belleville

Daily bus service proposed for Asphodel-Norwood

By John Campbell

EMC News - Norwood - Asphodel-Norwood could have its own bus service by early next year, and it won’t cost the municipality anything, says the head of a transportation company that wants to establish a transit system for all of Peterborough County. Darren Parberry, CEO and president of Metis Transportation Ltd., made a brief appearance before council May 14 to ask for a letter of support in principle for his plan to provide local bus service “at no cost to the taxpayers.” North Kawartha, Douro-Dummer and Trent Lakes have already expressed support in principle for Metis’ plans to provide public transit in their communities. Mr. Parberry told council he has yet to devise a route for within Asphodel-Norwood but the results of a market survey he had done

have given him “a very good idea of where people want to go” in the township. He said he needs municipal letters of support for when he eventually applies to the Ontario Highway Transport Board for approval to take his proposal to the next stage, “which is to bring all the local systems together into one big system.” Council deferred making a decision in order to give staff time to prepare a report for their next meeting. Reeve Doug Pearcy said later council is “supportive” of a service that eventually would enable residents to travel to Peterborough. “We do have weekly service now but what they’re proposing is daily,” he said. “It would give us a better connection to the cities. That would be a good thing for the citizens … Hopefully, it works

out.” Mr. Parberry said in an interview the service he has in mind for Asphodel-Norwood will run every two hours between stops from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday to Saturday, noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday. The fare would be $4 for up to ten stops. Weekly and monthly passes would also be sold, with cheaper rates for seniors, students and children. His plan is to start introducing local bus service in the north part of Peterborough County, work down to Asphodel-Norwood by January, and then link all the communities together within a year. Each municipality would have its own wheelchair-accessible bus with 18 to 24 seats. Ads would run on the sides of buses. “Our revenue is based on 50

per cent fares and 50 per cent from the local businesses,” Mr. Parberry said. Metis Transportation is not generating any income at this point. About a dozen people are working in the background as volunteers with the company. “We’re not going to take a salary until at least a year after everything is up and running,” he said. He estimated 30 to 40 people will be hired when the service is fully operational. With an investment of about $500,000 needed to launch the transit system, Mr. Parberry acknowledged his proposal represents a gamble “but we’ve seen the way transit’s going,” and he said he’s received calls from investors around the world expressing interest. “Our goal is to create mobility within the community,” he said.

An older and wiser Nawaz Sharif?

EMC Editorial - The first time Nawaz Sharif became prime minister of Pakistan was almost a quarter-century ago. His second term was ended fourteen years ago by a miliGwynne Dyer tary coup that drove him into exile. Now he’s back, a good deal older, but is he any wiser? Pakistanis seem to think so—or at least Punjabis do. Almost all of the seats won by his Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Party in last Saturday’s election were in the province of Punjab, which has more people than all of Pakistan’s other provinces combined. That weakens the legitimacy of his victory, but with the support of some candidates who won as independents he will have no trouble in forming a majority government. The question is: what will that government do? It’s a good question, because Pakistan is a nuclear-armed country of 160 million people that has borders with India, Afghanistan and Iran. It is also, in the view of some observers, fairly close to being a “failed state.” Everybody knows that Nawaz Sharif is conservative, pro-business, and devout— during his second term, he tried to pass a constitutional amendment that would have enabled him to enforce Sharia law—but he hasn’t been tremendously forthcoming

about his actual plans for his third term. And some of the things he did say have caused concern in various quarters. The thing that most worries the United States is his declaration that Pakistan should end its involvement in the U.S.led “war on terror.” The army is unhappy about his proposal that the government should negotiate with the Pakistani Taliban (who conducted a campaign of bombings, assassinations and kidnappings against the “secular” political parties in the recent election) rather than just fighting them. And everybody is wondering what Nawaz will do about the economy. The country’s balance of payments is in ruins, and it cannot meet its foreign debt obligations without negotiating new loans from the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund. Those loans would come with onerous conditions about balancing the budget and fixing the tax system, and they wouldn’t come at all without American support. Pakistan is technically a middle-income country, but during the outgoing government’s five years in office power shortages grew so acute that most regions are facing power outages for up to 12 hours a day. Millions of vehicles fuelled by natural gas have been immobilised by gas shortages. The country desperately needs foreign investment, but the plague of Islamist terrorism frightens investors away. Finally, the United States will be withdrawing its troops from Afghanistan next year, and Nawaz Sharif will have to decide what he wants to do about the Taliban in that country (who still have the tacit support of Pakistan’s army). The key to all these puzzles, oddly enough, may lie in

the incoming prime minister’s determination to improve relations with India. In each of his previous terms, he tried very hard to make peace with India, but was thwarted both times by the Pakistani army. The current military chief of staff, General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani, is due to retire at the end of this year (after a threeyear extension in office), and this will give Nawaz a chance to replace him with someone less committed to perpetual confrontation with India. Then many things would become possible. An end to the military confrontation would open the door to large-scale Indian investment in Pakistan (including pipelines bringing oil and gas from Iran and central Asia). It would let Pakistan cut the military budget down to size. And it would end the army’s tacit support for the Taliban in Afghanistan, which is all about ensuring that Pakistan has a friendly government in Kabul to give it “strategic depth” in its long cold war with India. The Taliban will inevitably be part of any post-occupation government in Afghanistan, but without Pakistani support they will have to strike a deal with other forces rather than just taking over. That outcome would greatly mollify Washington and make it easier for Islamabad to get new loans from the World Bank and the IMF. It would also make it easier for the government to negotiate some kind of domestic peace settlement with the Pakistani Taliban. Then, maybe, Nawaz could finally get the Pakistani economy back on track. It’s a long string of ifs, but nobody else on the Pakistani political scene seems to have a better plan.

the money! The president and CEO makes $1,720,000; Laura Formusa, (President and chief executive officer), makes $1,036,740; the Senior V/P of People, Culture and Chief Ethics Officer makes $467,208; a Senior Training Officer makes $364,571; and the Deputy Chief Nuclear Operating Strategic Initiative guy makes $547,088. How about an Executive V/P Nuclear Projects at $843,095. Oh man, now I understand: they REALLY REALLY need the money! Did you know that an “Authorized Nuclear Operator” can make up to $333,540? I would think that an UNauthorized Nuclear Operator, like Homer Simpson for instance, might not even make the Sunshine List. So Myles, my son, what’s it like to make $40,000 each and every month? Oh wait, there’s hefty income tax involved. So listen big guy, what’s a fella do with $25,000 plunked into his bank account each and every month until he takes his

defined benefit pension plan and hikes ’er into the clouds of blissful retirement? I asked my wife what we would do with $25 grand and she said that first of all, the tops and bottoms of our pyjamas would finally match! This isn’t the end you know. When an organization is this desperate for money, when a person whose title is “Vice President Total Rewards” makes $261,912, when a Senior Vice President makes $544,589, when a control room shift supervisor makes $292,900, whoo man ’der gotta be some serious coin raised! So be prepared for the next epistle from Mr. D’Arcey. Right around the corner is PREPAID HYDRO. You know, we’ll start her gently ’eh. Let you pay the future six months hydro up front in six easy payments. You’ll never miss ’er once she’s gone—and, after all, Myles may need new jammies. Wyley Canuck, aka Ken Leavens, Stirling

By Terry Bush EMC Editorial - It’s been quite a week for Prime Minister Stephen Harper. There he was in New York on Thursday scolding the world for its dwindling support of Israel, a peculiar stance to take in a week where that country decided that four settler outposts in the West Bank ordered demolished, would be granted settlement status. UN resolutions be damned; peace negotiations be damned; Netanyahu’s coalition government needs the settler vote to survive. Hook up the hydro and bring in the IDF. “There’s nothing more shortsighted in Western capitals in our time than the softening of support we’ve seen for Israel around the globe,” Harper was quoted in the Times of Israel, calling the country “the one stable, democratic ally in this part of the world.” Bibi Netanyahu feels the love. After all, he did recently spend $127,000 of Israeli taxpayers’ money to outfit a jet with a sleeping chamber for a five-hour flight to Britain for Margaret Thatcher’s funeral. (Total flight cost was $427,000.) His excuse? He had to be fresh when he met with the PM of Great Britain and our Prime Minister Harper. Meanwhile Israel’s almost 90-yearold president Shimon Perez recently took a flight paid for by taxpayers, an 11-hour flight to South Korea sitting in business class. No $427,000 private flights for Shimon, thank you very much. Israel’s recent violations of Lebanese airspace to bomb targets in Syria may have also ruffled a few feathers around the globe. Some might call this bombardment aiding the Syrian rebels considering government armaments were targeted. Israel says it’s keeping arms away from Hezbollah. Whatever the reason, Israel has once again attacked a sovereign country and the west was strangely silent. The 48 soldiers killed in the attack were barely mentioned in news reports. Netanyahu has said they’ll do it again whenever they think it’s necessary and if Syria responds to this act of war, Israel will really get down to business and kick the Assad regime to the curb. Israel has the right to defend its borders, other nations do not, it seems. Maybe that’s why some governments, much to Harper’s chagrin, aren’t quite so enamoured with State of Israel these days. They really don’t want to be drawn into yet another unnecessary war. But the home front is where Harper really shines. After his proclamation on Thursday, the Prime Minister didn’t really have much to say about the alleged

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Dear Editor, Did you get your letter telling you about “important changes to your Hydro One Account?” Did you read it? Did you understand that Ontario Hydro REALLY REALLY needs the money? They never once said: “You rotten buggers have been taking advantage of us,” instead they said, “We will let you pay off the old 18 day delay in billing you for Hydro, [which we never thought of before but now are delighted to bill], over the next six months easy payment plan.” The lad who sent you the letter, Mr. Myles D’Arcey, made $484,356.78 in 2012. He needs the money. So do the other 10,800 folks at Hydro who made over $100,000 in 2012. I counted them all, but I might be out by three or four because my eyes were wet with tears of envy or anger, whichever comes first. A conservative average of say $135,000 times 10,800 of the sunshine-enhanced hydro folk translates to one billion, four hundred and fifty-eight million smackeroos. That’s why they need

double dipper and party fund raiser Mike Duffy quitting the Conservative caucus to sit as an independent. When Friday rolled around, another hand-picked Harper senate appointee, Pamela Wallin, also announced that she too was quitting the Conservative caucus while her expenses were being audited. Back in February, Harper had personally vouched for Wallin’s expenses saying they were in line with other politicians. And then on Sunday morning, Harper’s right hand man, Chief of Staff Nigel Wright, announced his resignation as well. Mr. Wright (a Bay Street millionaire) had seen fit to write a personal cheque for 90 grand to pay back Mr. Duffy’s over and above expenses but the Prime Minister didn’t know of course. This in itself might cause one to wonder why Harper wouldn’t know what his chief of staff was doing. One would also wonder why Mike Duffy stopped co-operating with investigators after he paid off his expenses. Did he think he was home free for some reason? Did he think other Conservative senators had his back? If they did they quickly changed their minds and proceeded to duck and cover. Prime Minister Harper hasn’t really said boo about this whole sordid affair other than to back his political appointees. One would hope a politician who promised honest and transparent government would at least give an explanation for the goings on in our nation’s capital. Wasn’t senate reform on Harper’s “to do list” way back when. The sad fact of the matter is both Wallin and Duffy are still being paid to sit in the Senate and we’re footing the bill. Under the same circumstances, do you think your employer would even allow you to walk through the door? The case may be made that the Americans have it right in limiting a president (read prime minister) to two terms in office. Corruption always seems to rise to the top when prime ministers achieve that third mandate be they Liberal or Conservative. And from all appearances, a senate seat seems to be regarded not as giving provincial representation and sober second thought but as a way to have a hell of a good time on the taxpayers’ dime. Too bad this is all going down two years before the next election. Voters have short memories at times. Hopefully they realize corruption isn’t limited to a single party. But these recent revelations do make those Trudeau attack ads sound really silly, don’t they.

three municipalities, and centralizing scheduling in one spot, which is now being done out of three locations. “As we continue to grow, it doesn’t make sense,” to continue as is, she said, and “it’s becoming more difficult.” The programs already share vans and paid drivers. Agency staff members have held several meetings with the CAOs of the three municipalities—Hamilton Township has been invited to participate as well—to make plans for the coming changes. “We’re figuring how best to share the costs fairly between the areas,” Ms. Hoskin said. Once a plan is in place, the other municipalities in Northumberland will be invited to consider “what the buy in would be” to be included in the expand-

ed service. Last year, the volunteer service provided 30,700 one-way trips for more than 1,500 clients. For the Venture and Aging at Home vans, the figures were in excess of 5,700 one-way trips for 415 clients. The Northumberland Transportation Initiative, or NTI, has 565 registered clients; it made 3,051 one-way trips in Cramahe and Alnwick-Haldimand, and 541 one-way trips in Trent Hills last year. The service operates four days a week, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., and is available to anyone in those municipalities who use it for work, recreation, shopping, medical appointments, school, VIA Rail connection, and other reasons. The service must be booked at least 24 hours in advance and riders living off

the main route will be picked up at their driveway. The cost is $5 one way within each service route and an additional $5 to transfer to a service route in another municipality (a trip from Trent Hills to Cobourg, for example, costs $10 one way). Family rates are negotiable and the county’s social services department purchases passes for its Ontario Works clients. NTI is supported by gas tax money from the provincial government, which will add up to about $100,000 for this year. The three municipalities will contribute anywhere from $2,500 to $20,000 in 2013 while fares are projected to generate roughly $20,000. To register, call the NTI office at the Community Care office in Colborne (1866-768-7778).

Northumberland’s heritage venues to open doors June 1 and 2 By John Campbell

EMC News - Northumberland Cty. Community Care Northumberland is looking to expand the transportation services it provides county residents. Currently those services are provided three different ways: volunteers (using their own vehicles to take clients to medical appointments, social activities, shopping centres, etc.), the Northumberland Transportation Initiative (which operates much like a rural bus route in the municipalities of Trent Hills, Cramahe, and Alnwick-Haldimand), and Venture Van, which carries clients with health issues that make it impossible for them to use either of the other two services. Project co-ordinator Jessica Hoskin told county council May 15 Community Care is working toward getting people around the county, not just in each of the

EMC Lifestyles - Northumberland County’s rich heritage will be on display June 1 and 2 when the county plays host for the very first time to a Doors Open Ontario event.   “For [their] long-term survival, heritage assets must be widely appreciated for the important role they play in our communities,” Dave Cutler, chair of Doors Open Northumberland, told county council May 15. Public support for conservation can be strengthened “by demonstrating that heritage assets give our communities a unique sense of place, and we must show that this distinctiveness is vital to the economic and social well-being of our communities,” he said. And there’s no better way to pay tribute to what they have to offer than to give the public the opportunity “to get up close and personal with their heritage” at many of the region’s landmarks. Twenty-six sites are taking part in the two-day event, some of them not previously open to the public, Mr. Cutler said. The attractions include: • the original 1939 Riverside Dance Pavilion in Hastings, where dance lessons will be held during the day and then put into practice at a dance that night • the Carousel at Roseneath, built in 1906, that’s been restored, where you can ride the wooden horses to the music supplied by a 1934 Wurlitzer organ • the Annie Currie Observatory at Trinity College School, where visitors will be able to observe the heavens through a telescope • a restored 1890s bar room in the former Oriental Hotel in Castleton, that’s now a private home • the original 1857 Grand Trunk Railway station that’s part of the Memory Junction Museum in Brighton. Mr. Cutler said Doors Open Ontario boasts a successful track record over 11 years, “facilitating five million visits to heritage sites and generating $25 million in investment in host communities by out-of-town visitors. “More and more communities are recognizing the importance of cultural heritage as a leading stimulus for tour-

Dave Cutler, chair of Doors Open Northumberland, says this year’s event, involving 26 cultural and heritage sites across the county, is a first for the county and he hopes it will continue in future.

ism development,” he said. It attracts visitors, “who boost the local economy.” A report by the Ontario Arts Council in January stated spending by arts and culture tourists in 2010 totalled $4.1 billion dollars, and they spent “twice as much per trip as other tourists.” Doors Open Northumberland is a collaboration of the county’s tourism department and the Northumberland Heritage Alliance, an informal affiliation of the chairs and other members of the county’s seven municipal heritage advisory committees.

Many have had previous experience with organizing a Doors Open event in their community. Running parallel the same weekend is Trails Open Northumberland, with opportunities to go hiking and bird watching in the Northumberland County Forest. Admission to all venues is free and most will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. To learn more visit <www.northumberlandtourism.com> or pick up a map at a municipal office.

This year, attractive new banners heralded the event, a promotional project that was the direct beneficiary of last summer’s Ultimate Fishing Town triumph that put Hastings on the world map as a prime-time fishing destination.

Rollins, who had planned to retire as of June 1, says she was

first informed of the decision made by Canada Post officials to close the outlet just before the long weekend. Rollins has spent 41 years with Canada Post and is a third-generation postmaster whose family held the position for nearly a century. “I’m going to miss it,” she

says. On Tuesday, Canada Post Media Relations representative Joelle Hamilton confirmed in an email that the post office in the centre of the hamlet “will be temporarily closed due to the retirement of the current postmaster at the end of the month. “In the next few days, custom-

ers will receive a letter as well as keys and locks to group mailboxes where they will temporarily pick up their mail until a new postmaster is hired.” Hamilton says the recruitment process is expected to begin shortly with the hope of filling the position “as quickly as possible.”

Norwood high school’s enrollment decline “shocking” By John Campbell

EMC News - Norwood School board officials met with Friends of Norwood District High School May 16 to keep open the lines of communication over the fate of NDHS, which has seen its student enrollment steadily decline in recent years. The numbers fell from 462 in 2004-2005 to 327 this year, and they’re projected to shrink to as few as Trustee Shirley Patterson said an accommodation review for Norwood Dis300 by next fall, according trict High School will be held some day but that’s “sometime in the future.” to figures presented by Greg Ingram, superintendent of student achievement for the north east region of the Kawartha Pine Ridge (KPR) District School Board. “It’s just shocking,” Mr. Ingram told the Friends, who, through one of its members, former trustee Verna Shackleton, had asked for the information meeting at the high school. “I’m amazed at how … much the enrollment has changed.” The projected enrollment is 44 per cent below the school’s rated capacity of 680. That’s cause for concern because one of the criteria for triggering an accommodation review, which can lead to a recomWindows, Doors, Siding, Soffit, Fascia, mendation for closure, is Garage Doors, Steel Roof & More when a school’s enrollment For the “Do It Yourself” customer we’ll assist you with falls below 85 per cent of FREE advice... or our staff will complete the task. full utilization.

Trustee Shirley Patterson said “some day no doubt” a review will be ordered for Norwood but that’s “sometime in the future” and there’s nothing planned at the present. NDHS remains on the list of schools being monitored, a situation that hasn’t changed in years. Mr. Girardi outlined the accommodation review process, which can take months to conduct and requires four public meetings be held before a decision is made. “You never know how it’s going to go,” he said. Mayor Doug Pearcy said the community has “great respect” for what the school has accomplished with its programming, “but we do see a problem coming down the road and we’re trying to figure out ways to address that.” If Norwood’s enrollment continues to fall, “we won’t have a shot of keeping this school open,” he said, and he asked for the board’s help in figuring what can be done to prevent that happening. “We’re trying to be proactive and do something ahead of the wave.” But “we don’t know what we can do.” Mr. Ingram said “declining enrollment is a big issue” throughout the school board district. “It really is a numbers game,” and KPR’s figures “might be the worst in the province,” he said. Mr. Ingram said there are about 75 young people in Norwood’s catchment

area that attend other high schools. Mayor Pearcy said if they went to NDHS, “we might not be having this discussion today,” but Mr. Ingram assured him they would, because it would still be a small school. “I don’t want to see anybody close … but our problem is the number of kids,” Mr. Girardi said, and the only way

to solve that is “to have more kids [or] bring more kids to your area.” Mayor Pearcy said Friends “will carry on to see if there’s anything we can do to help the situation. We are supposed to be community leaders and this is a significant thing for our community.” Mr. Ingram said afterward the two super-

intendents wanted “to allay some fears that the board is going to run out and close the school tomorrow.” The situation is being monitored “and we’re looking at whatever we can do to make sure kids are getting the programming they need to be able to do what they want to do when they leave high school.”

‘Imagination starts with quality plants’ 10 The Trent Hills Independent - Thursday, May 23, 2013

Greg Ingram, superintendent of student achievement for the north east region of the Kawartha Pine Ridge (KPR) District School Board, said it’s “shocking” how much enrollment has declined at Norwood District High School.

First Nation receives funding for solar project EMC News - Alderville - Funding for the Alderville Solar Racking Project has been approved providing $373,004 to assist in the delivery of in-class Steve Girardi, superintendent of student achievement for the school training and on-the-job experience to Aboriginal people living in the Alderboard’s east region, said Norwood District High School will continue to be ville First Nation community. This project is under the auspices of the Skills and Partnership Fund monitored because of its small student population. This Skills and Partnership Fund project will provide Aboriginal participants with skills development within demand driven occupations identified and linked to the Alderville Solar Racking Project. “This welding project means that Alderville First Nation will have upwards of 18 or more highly skilled and qualified welders and solar-racking installers that will be able to work on any project anywhere,” said James Marsden, Chief, Alderville First Nation. The Solar Racking Project is unique as it will provide participants with hands-on experience and skilled employment opportunities available through the Alderville First Nation 5 Mega Watt Solar Farm. Alderville is the first 100 per cent First Nation owned solar farm in Ontario and is on track to becoming a centre for excellence for solar power generation. The announcement was made by NorthumberlandQuinte West MP Rick Norlock. R0012104092

Donnybrook Sale and Auction celebrates anniversary made as an item is sold. On Thursday evening, June 13, members of the service club and community volunteers will pick up sale and auction items in the Percy Ward and Warkworth areas (postal code K0K 3K0 only). The organization is asking everyone to check basements, garages and clothes closets for items they no longer need and simply place these items by the curb.  Pickup starts about 5 p.m. Folks can also drop usable items off at the arena in Warkworth from 5 to 9 p.m. on Thursday and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Friday; no drop-offs Saturday.  By government regulation, the service club cannot pick up any hazardous materials (paints, oil, pesticides/herbicides, propane tanks, or batteries), mattresses or box springs, children’s car seats, baby cribs or baby walkers.   “We regret that we cannot accept tires, refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners or any items with Freon.  We do not

accept items that do not work or are in need of repair,” said Rosemarie Peikes. “We are raising money to put back into the community and it costs us to dispose of garbage that has been donated.” 
The Donnybrook organizers also request that any electric appliances be in good working order, and that any furniture donations be of good quality. Every year the club must pay for the disposal of dozens of torn, broken, and dilapidated sofas and armchairs that cannot reasonably be sold. The disposal costs are growing and directly reduce the amount of money the club is able to reinvest in the community. 
The Percy Minor Hockey Association will be running a refreshment booth with hot dogs, hamburgers, French fries and cold drinks.   Bring the family as there is something for everyone. “Be part of Northumberland’s largest Reduce, Recycle, and Reuse event,” states Peikes. For more information call 705-924-1877.

Anglers and yard sale enthusiasts mingle and enjoy holiday weekend

By Sue Dickens

EMC News - Hastings - Victoria Day holiday weekend fever hooked residents and those “from away” as fishing season opened providing an opportunity for festivities and fun in the village. Midnight Madness, on Friday night, was just the beginning. About two dozen people could be seen fishing off the bridge the next day as the traditional springtime sport lured fishing enthusiasts once more. For people such as Thomas Szczepanek, who drives from Peterborough to Hastings on a regular basis to fish, the weekend did not disappoint. “I’ve been coming here for the past nine or ten years,” he told Trent Hills Regional News. Using a ten-pound test line he had already hooked a pickerel, and while being interviewed, he hauled in a mudcat. “These are good eating,” he said while he took the hook out of the fish. His pickerel, which measured 19.7 inches in length, was on a very long rope which stretched down from the bridge to the rushing water below. Szczepanek wasn’t too happy that the lockmaster had told him they were going to be turning the flow of the water down soon. “Fishing is going to be pretty lame then,” he noted. Trent Hills Regional News was unable to get an official comment on the situation on the holiday weekend. Anglers on the bridge that day had come from as far away as Toronto and Barrie to fish including Helder Amarel, whose uncle “has a cottage down the road.” He came here because “fishing from the bridge is different.” Down the road, at the corner of Bridge and Front streets, the Hastings Lions Club members were conducting their annual road toll. Lion Ian Wilkins was among those who had volunteered to spend several hours accepting donations from drivers. The road toll was held for two days. “The money helps with all of our projects,” said Wilkins. Down the street the Trent Hills Fire Department’s command centre was set up, with a table on the sidewalk, filled with educational information for adults and children. A display of wireless interconnectable smoke detectors was set up inside the large command centre. “These are battery operated and good up to about 45 feet [from each other],” said firefighter Randy Dunkley. “My daughter just bought a house and

A community yard sale on Victoria Day long weekend brought these young entrepreneurs, Shekayla Beaudry, seven, and Amilya Beaudry, eight, of Norwood, to the ball park in Hastings where their mom set up a table to sell their “stuff,” including the headband and sandal with decorations they made themselves.

that is why we are looking,” said Bonnie Riley of Roseneath who was there with her daughter Kim Smith. Nearby in the ballpark a community yard sale was a happening place with close to 20 tables set up for the day-long event. Crystal Beaudry and her two daughters, Shekayla Beaudry, seven, and Amilya Beaudry, eight, of Norwood, were among those selling their “stuff.” Perhaps Beaudry said it best: “This is a chance to meet people and make a few dollars.”

Students pack lunches at Appetite for Awareness

By Sue Dickens

EMC News - Campbellford - Inspiring possibilities with its vision and mission, Community Living Campbellford/Brighton (CLCB), held its popular, bagged lunch “Appetite for Awareness” event here recently. Grade 5/6 students from Hillcrest Public School walked from their classroom to Community Living at 65 Bridge Street to participate in this annual event,

now in its tenth year. “The kids pack all of the lunches for all of the community members who ordered them from us,” explained Angela Clarke, quality assurance and family liaison with CLCB. Close to 30 children lined up eager to pack the lunch bag with a ham or beef sandwich, apple or orange, carrots or celery, cheese and water. “It’ll help people with learning disabilities and it

means a lot to them,” said Brenden Hamilton, Grade 5. “I am participating in this to help the people with intellectual disabilities get their lunches and be happy,” said Kayla Pyke, Grade 6. They were joined by another classmate, Olivia Dyer, also in Grade 6, who agreed that packing a lunch gave her an awareness of what Community Living is all about.

sale could not match 2012 in terms of the volume and variety of plants which flourished during an unseasonably warm spring, this year’s event was successful and of high quality. “The season’s very late so a lot of the plants haven’t developed as much,” society president and Master Gardener Judy Bernard told the Trent Hills Regional News. “We don’t have the numbers we usually have but I think the quality is there,” Bernard said. “We’ve tried a few extra things with pricing and having a few extra garden items [like trellises],” she added. “I’m thrilled with the sale. We’ve got

a wonderful group of people working here.” The sale featured herbs, vegetables, perennials, annuals, house plants and a small selection of gently used garden implements and accessories and hand-crafted garden décor. Bernard says last year’s dry season was exceptional. She wouldn’t make any bold predictions about 2013. “Heaven only knows; we take it one week at a time and see,” she said with a laugh. “I think for the most part if the plants are well-established in your garden they can withstand a great deal of drought,” Bernard said. “I try to plant things that are drought resistant and mulch; make sure the water that gets on the ground stays on the ground and doesn’t evaporate.” Gardeners, like everyone else concerned with environmental issues, are keen observers of climate changes. “The weather is changing everywhere and that’s quite evident; you’re seeing varieties of birds you don’t usually see,” says Bernard. “As Master Gardeners that’s one of the things we’re concerned about; what to look for in the changing seasons and how the weather is changing. “We don’t dwell on it as

much at the Horticultural Society,” she added The Horticultural Society currently has 50 members and Bernard would like to see that number increase. “Over 30 members turn out to our meetings; that’s really great,” she says. Members come from as far away as Marmora, Roseneath, Cordova Mines, Warsaw and Indian River. One of the keys to the organization’s success, Bernard says, is the variety of guest speakers they have at their meetings. “We’ve had some wonderful speakers this year.” The society also boasts a number of Master Gardeners and Bernard says that at least once a year they have a special Master Gardener’s quesPauline Wilkins of Cordova Mines, and a member of the Norwood and Distion and answer session. There is lots of sharing of trict Horticultural Society, volunteers at the society’s annual spring plant knowledge at their meetings, sale last week. Photo: Bill Freeman she says.

EMC News - Hastings - Let’s Dance! Whether it is dancing down memory lane or dancing the night away the Riverside Dance Pavilion and Auction Hall here is the venue for a free event that will celebrate Doors Open in Northumberland. Promoted as an opportunity for communities to celebrate the relationship between heritage and the arts, Doors Open Ontario has become a cultural phenomenon. For Bob Crate (Trent Hills Deputy-mayor) and his wife Judy, Doors Open also means an opportunity to celebrate their love for each other again. “I used to watch him and I used to think, boy could I ever dance with him,” said Judy Crate. The couple agreed to an interview and met at the Riverside. “A group of my high school girlfriends would hitch-

hike to Hastings to the dance hall every Friday night,” said Judy, who was 17 at the time and living in Peterborough. Unbeknownst to her, the bouncer at the dance hall, Bob Crate, who was 20, would one day be her husband. “Bob was a good dancer; that’s why I got married,” said Judy laughing. The couple has been married 42 years. “I started coming here when I was 12. They had a teen town,” said Bob, reminiscing. “On Friday nights they had big bands and the ladies would come out with long dresses and crinoline and the guys would have shirts and ties. At that age I used to stand at the windows and watch people dance. I just loved it,”

he said. “We had great times,” Judy said. “I paid them money so I could come in here The Crates had plenty of stories to and look at girls … then when I was 17 or 18 tell about those dance hall days but they hired me as a bouncer and they were pay- the other reason for the interview was ing me to come in here and look at girls.

The Brighton Terpsichore led by Mary McEwan will offer free dance lessons, 1 to 4 p.m. The George Potter Band, that used to perform Friday nights at the hall years ago, will perform a free concert from 8:30 p.m. to midnight. “I am actually a pretty hot western swing dancer so I will have my dancing skirt on,” said Morrison with a big grin. A display about dance halls will be assembled by the Hastings Historical Society. Morrison hopes folks will dig into their treasure trove of memorabilia and look for photos etc. that might relate to the Riverside hall. “We’re trying to historically animate the Village of Hastings.

Wacky Water Whale Races make a fun weekend

what was a perfect day at Lions Park. “You see people you went to high school with here,” said Genge as she watched Al Partington, a.k.a. the whale catcher, scoop up the plastic purple whales as they flowed down the fast-moving Ouse River to the finish line, where he stood up to his waist in water. He is a member of the Norwood Lions Club which hosted the fun fund raiser. A total of 720 whales had been dumped off a bridge upstream and within 10 to 15 minutes the first whales showed up at the finish line. It was a wacky race resulting in six prize winners. The top prize winner was John Wilkes of Campbellford who won $1,000 with whale #59.

“All the money goes back into the community, to make the community a better place to live.” From their infamous back bacon on a bun breakfast to hamburgers and hot dogs, the Lions kept everyone fed with their fund-raising barbeque which started very early Saturday morning. “We went through 25 dozen eggs, 45 pounds of back bacon and pounds and pounds of cheese,” said Lion Dave Wooland. He had been busy cooking up breakfast along with several other Lions members. The hungry lunchtime crowd ate 200 hamburgers and 120 hot dogs. “All the money goes back into the community, to make the community a better place to live,” said Wooland, happy with the results. Nearby a yard sale held by the Norwood Lioness Club helped raise more money. The remaining Wacky Water Whale Race winners are: second-place prize of $200 - Tanya Bailey of Havelock; third-place prize of $100, Ron Chaplin of Norwood; tenth-place prize of $50, Leona Patterson of Norwood; 20thplace prize of $50, Jorja Crawford of Hastings area; 30th-place prize of $50, Marg Dawson of Hastings.

Kerr family, neighbours take stroll down memory lane By John Campbell

Trent Hills - The chapter hasn’t ended just yet but a few more pages were turned last Saturday on the history of a property dating to 1834. At the centre of it all was Allan Kerr and the occasion was an opportunity for family members, friends and neighbours to take a final stroll down “memory lane” running through the farm his father, Ross Kerr, purchased in 1948. “It’s my last way of showing it off [and] saying thank you to my dad [who died in 1999],” Mr. Kerr said of the farm on County Road 8 west of Hoards Station that his family has owned for 65 years. That tie will come to an end in the fall when new owners take over with plans to restore the house and stone

grist mill. “I decided to have a barbeque to celebrate its history,” Mr. Kerr said. Special invited guests included Campbellford resident Doris Potts, who was born in the farmhouse 100 years ago when it was owned by her family, the Ranneys, and Jim Bates, a direct descendant of the property’s original owner, Captain Thomas Allen. The criminal defence attorney flew up from California to be part of the celebration. Originally deeded 200 acres, Captain Allen purchased an additional 900 acres, which made him the largest landholder at the time in the former township of Seymour, Mr. Kerr said. He hired 32 men to clear the land and then decided to build a grist mill to serve the needs of the settlers. It took three years to construct—but it operated for only two years after that, Mr. Kerr said, because Mr. Allen died in 1869 and his two sons back in Scotland were too young to carry on his work. When they came of age, they sold their inheritance, which included a farmhouse with five fireplaces. “The hearth in the kitchen rivals anything out of a pioneer village,” Mr. Kerr said. Mr. Kerr was a dairy farmer for 25 years before getting out of the business Mr. Bates said he first made contact with Mr. Kerr during a 30-day trial with <www.ancestry.com>. “This is beautiful,” he said, shortly after his arrival at the Kerr farm. “I’ve been looking forward to this ever since Allan and Carol Kerr and their granddaughter, Madeline Budgell, of BrighI heard about the reunion a few months ton, pose in front of the stone mill the Kerr family has owned since 1948.

Make fire and carbon monoxide safety a part of cottage season

Application for Vreugdenhil property rezoning approved By Kate Everson

EMC News - Quinte West - Property owned by Frank Vreugdenhil at 1573 County Road 5 in the former township of Murray has been approved for rezoning by the Planning Advisory Committee on May 9. The lands have a total lot area of 17.7 hectares (43.7 acres) with 126 metres (413 feet) of frontage on County Road 5 and Stockdale Road. The lands were rezoned from restricted rural to a variety of special general residential zones. “The effect of the amendment is to bring the severed land into conformance with the Murray Ward Zoning Bylaw and to provide zoning protection on lands associated with Cold Creek watercourse,” noted Brian Jardine, manager of Planning Services. The surrounding area consists primarily of residential land uses within the hamlet of

EMC News - Trent Hills - The Trent Hills Fire Department Fire Prevention Committee wants the public to make fire and carbon monoxide safety a priority this cottage season. The Fire Marshal’s Public Fire Safety Council kicked off its seventh annual cottage safety campaign urging all cottagers to protect their families and guests from fire and carbon monoxide. The program, called “Peace of Mind for your Piece of Heaven,” puts its 2013 focus on educating the public that it is vital to prepare and practise a home or cottage fire escape plan and to check and maintain smoke alarms and carbon monoxide alarms, ensuring that they are fully powered and are not past their expiry date. In a press release the safety council is urging cottagers to follow five steps when opening the cottage this season. On day one of cottage season, prepare and practise a fire escape plan ensuring, wherever possible, that you have two ways out of every room of your cottage.

Stockdale. The predominant land uses will be single detached dwellings. An environmental protection zone is proposed along the creek to protect the floodplain and the provincially significant wetland. Notice of application was circulated to all registered owners of land within 120 metres (400 feet) of the subject property. “A member of the public expressed concern that the potential for future development on the parcel is not appropriate for the Stockdale hamlet,” Jardine notes. “Further comments related to concerns surrounding a possible subdivision. The city has not received a draft plan of subdivision on these lands.” A letter dated May 8 was re-

ceived from Christopher Scott of 1960 Stockdale Road, which sits in front of the lots being rezoned. “It is our understanding that Planning staff may not be privy to some residential site plans, as of yet,” Scott writes. “However, following a conversation with Mr. Vreugdenhil, he has made it clear that his intent is to build a subdivision behind our home and utilize the vacant lot, next to our property, on Stockdale Road as a point of entry. “We understand that the village of Stockdale is classified as a hamlet, and therefore supports future residential development,” he notes. “Ideally, though, we would ask that member of council and city staff consider these 100-year-plus

homes and the Stockdale Mill restaurant as landmarks and reconsider this rezoning application, and possibly apply for heritage status for this area.” Scott said this community encompasses many caring individuals that have worked hard to transform this area. “Twenty-some years ago, when we first moved to Stockdale, there were no paved driveways, no sidewalks, little if any light fixtures. It has been the collaboration of homeowners, business owners and the city, that have made Stockdale an attractive residential area. We ask that you please ensure that our retirement investment properties are protected.”

Codrington pit OMB hearing set By Ray Yurkowski

EMC News - Brighton - The long-awaited Ontario Municipal Board (OMB) hearing to resolve objections from neighbouring property owners to CBM Aggregates’ application for a sand and gravel pit at Codrington is set to begin in August. CBM, a division of St. Marys Cement Group, filed applications for a sand and gravel pit licence at a 105-hectare (259acre) site on Ferguson Hill Road in 2009. Although the actual area of extraction is proposed on only 80 hectares (198 acres), CBM expects to extract 14 million tonnes of aggregate over approximately 30 years. The company filed an appeal with the OMB in November 2012 because of municipal council failure to make a decision on an application for an amendment to the zoning bylaw. In a letter to the municipality, CBM land and resources director Melanie Horton called the action a “friendly appeal” and noted they “continue to be committed to working with the municipality in an attempt to resolve outstanding issues.” “We are making the appeal at this time so that all of the matters associated with the CBM Codrington Pit may be consolidated into a single hearing at the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB),” she wrote. “We’re close, but we’re not there yet,” said CBM lawyer David White at an OMB pre-hearing held last week at council chambers in Brighton. “We’re very close to agreements with both Northumberland County and the municipality.” He noted how the county has no objection, in principle, with the Codrington development and all provincial Ministry of Natural Resources conditions have been satisfied. “From the files, there are still 25 objections to the applica-

tion,” he added. “There is some potential for a settlement of this matter,” OMB member Mary-Anne Sills, who presided over the session, advised those in attendance. “And because we’re dealing with three different types of applications, one may be settled where others are not. I would say to the members of the public, it would be very helpful if you would attempt to co-ordinate your concerns and have one or two spokespersons speak, in the event it all proceeds to a hearing.” In all, eight “participants” were declared at the pre-hearing session, by OMB definition, “an individual, group or corporation that may choose to attend only part of the proceedings but makes a statement to the Board on all or some of the issues in the hearing.” “Your opinions are not weighed any less just because you are a participant,” explained lawyer Wayne Fairbrother, who represents both county and municipal interests. “It’s the evidence that matters.”

One of those participants, Hollie Rodd, lives on Highway 30 in Codrington next door to the proposed entrance to the CBM operation. “I’m probably the most affected neighbour,” she said in an interview. “My whole backyard will be the gravel pit and north of my driveway would be the entrance. “The pit is going in, I know that,” Rodd added. “The question is, how do I get in and out of my driveway with all these trucks (estimated at upwards of 200 a day, between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. Monday through Friday and 7 a.m. to noon on Saturday) when I’m right at the turning lane. It’s going to cause a huge problem for me. I just want to know what CBM plans to do for me. No one from CBM has ever contacted me for anything.” Rodd contends CBM officials lied when they told residents tests were conducted on all the wells in the area of the proposed pit. “No one has ever tested my well and I live in the gravel pit,” she said.

Area residents Lynn and Randy McNichol, who built their dream home less than 100 feet from where excavation will begin, will attend as a “party.” Their role in the hearing process can include exchanging documents, presenting evidence, questioning witnesses and making submissions to the board. The hearing is set to begin at 10 a.m. on August 19 at council chambers, 35 Alice Street, with a possible five days of testimony. “To be guaranteed the opportunity to participate, you do need to be here at the start of the hearing on the first day,” said Sills. “I would encourage people that do have questions about the applications, ask those questions of the municipal staff.” Another public meeting will be scheduled, most likely at the end of the June, said municipal planner Ken Hurford, after the meeting.

24 The Trent Hills Independent - Thursday, May 23, 2013

EMC News - Brighton - ���Today, quality of life in Brighton took a major step forward,” said Brighton Arts Council (BAC) president Ron Waddling last week at the official announcement of the local arts organization receiving a $25,000 federal New Horizons for Seniors grant. “The Brighton Arts Council has proven its dedication to seniors and its ability to engage these valued members of our community in creative pursuits,” he said. “Whether it’s through participation at an exhibition, volunteering at The Gates gallery or attending age and ability workshops, seniors are encouraged by the Brighton Arts Council. “A significant percentage of our membership falls into the very active senior category. We look at senior members as a valuable resource

in our community as our creative neighbours who embrace yet another opportunity in life and as mentors who will share their passion for all disciplines of art with those who have yet to realize their creative potential. “The New Horizons for Seniors grant allows members of the BAC to continue with programs introduced over the previous season and to develop new outreach for seniors, both within our group and the greater community. It allows us to build our relationships with likeminded community groups such as the Friends of Presqu’ile, Community Care and the Brighton Public Library. Together, we will encourage seniors to remain active in the community, to experience new outlets for their creativity and to express their life experiences through art.” Projects can receive up to $25,000 in funding and must address one or more of the pro-

gram’s five objectives: volunteering, mentoring, expanding awareness of elder abuse, social participation, and capital assistance. “On behalf of the Government of Canada, I want to congratulate you on a successful application,” said local MP Rick Norlock. “We roll up our sleeves and work together to build a better community and thank you for that.” “One of our members who will be involved in one of the New Horizons programs, a human-book presentation, is 90-years-young Florence Chatten,” noted Waddling. “Human books will continue now and she is a lead in the project. We also have other programs in mind, in partnership with the Brighton Public Library, and we may even be having a seniors band. It’s looking pretty cool.”


Community Care to launch pilot program with federal funding By John Campbell

EMC News - Brighton - Community Care Northumberland will use a $24,500 federal grant to launch a pilot program in Brighton to help seniors stay active while offering them new opportunities to volunteer. Northumberland-Quinte West MP Rick Norlock announced the New Horizons for Seniors grant May 17 in Colborne prior to the monthly meeting of Community Care’s board of directors. “With the growth of our seniors population in Northumberland County, Community Care Northumberland has recognized the need for additional wellness programming that would interest [a] younger senior demographic that has coined itself ‘Junior Seniors,’” the agency’s executive director, Trish Baird, said in a statement. “All of these folks have a really huge knowledge base that we can tap into,” she said in an interview. A co-ordinator will be hired with the grant to design and implement programs

that focus on seniors’ recreation, health, nutrition, and learning, as well as encourage “younger seniors”—typically, those 50 to 55 years of age—to become volunteers, she said. Ms. Baird noted the proportion of seniors living in Northumberland, about 20 per cent of the population, is much higher than it is for the province, about 13 per cent, “so there will be no shortage of interest in the program.” Community Care currently has close to 5,000 clients, and about 70 per cent of them are over 65, she said. With 900 volunteers, the agency is always looking for ways to keep them interested and healthy, “so anything we can do to involve more people in our organization helps our recruitment,” she said. The number of hours the volunteers contribute “works out to about 46 fulltime people,” Ms. Baird said, almost twice as many as Community Care’s 26 full-time equivalents in paid staff.

Mayors prepare to smash $100,000 mark at annual Cup Challenge

EMC News - Northumberland Cty. Over the past 12 years the Mayor’s Cup Challenge has raised $97,000 for Community Care Northumberland’s regional Hospice Palliative Care program. So Community Care board chairman Dave Graham was pretty safe in saying, “This year we expect to smash that $100,000 mark.” The question is how? The seven mayors won’t find out how until they arrive at the Brighton Speedway July 27. That’s because the kind of race they’ll be taking part in is a closely kept secret until the competition is held. One year it was bicycles built for two, another year it was wheelchairs, and then there was the time they got around on lawn tractors, said Warden Hector Macmillan, who’s won the competition twice. The challenge for the mayors is twofold: raise the most pledges, and secure bragging rights by winning the funthemed race that’s held during intermission at the speedway. Prior to their monthly council meeting May 15, the mayors were presented

with thank-you bags that included information about Community Care and the handling of pledges, along with individualized Hot Wheels cars bearing a nickname for each. (Brighton Mayor Mark Walas, for example, was given the moniker “Tarmac Attack.”) “We appreciate the support of the Northumberland County Mayors,” Trish Baird, executive director of Community Care Northumberland, said in a statement. “This event not only raises funds but provides awareness to the community about the services we offer throughout the County.” To make a pledge online in support of a mayor go to the <www.commcare.ca> donate page. Or you can make a pledge in person by dropping in at a local Community Care Northumberland program office. On hand for the kickoff was Lou Rinaldi whose raceway hosts the annual event. He brought with him one of the go-karts that will become part of the business next year, using a race track that’s being built inside the existing oval.

This means she has qualified to compete at Natural Olympia 2013 in Reno, Nevada, and the World’s competition in Athens, Greece. This 38-year-old mother of three boys who works full-time has a passion for bodybuilding and this competition was an event she had been looking forward to and working toward for some time. “I had so much fun this year and met some new friends/fellow competitors which is always amazing,” Debutte told Trent Hills Regional News. She placed first in Women’s Bodybuilding Junior Master (ages 35-39) and first in Women’s Bodybuilding Heavyweight, which is over 115 pounds for this competition. “I was 120 pounds but I was Natisha Debutte has qualified to compete at Natural Olympia 2013 in Reno, Nevada, and the World’s competition in Athens, quite a bit taller than the other Greece, having muscled her way into first-place wins at the recent INBA Ontario Championships.

that Dave and Julie Avery of Team Avery have hosted. And not everything is about what happens on stage. “Backstage can be just as important as on stage, getting suits changed, hair and makeup done or touched up etc., … and your nerves calm,” Debutte said. Preparations for the event do not just include getting one’s body in shape, toned for competitions like this; it also means, for some of the events, choosing an outfit and maintaining the ability to carry it all off with poise. “I really enjoyed the theme round for sports model,” said Debutte. “My theme was a referee which my children thought was really neat because they are all into sports so much, and I had made sure I practised my walk this year because with sports model you need to wear very high arched heels,” she explained. As well the participants in certain categories get to choose the music for their routines. “I loved my song choice for my bodybuilding routine this year as well, Catch My Breath [by recording artist Kelly Clarkson] because it had a lot of meaning to me,” she noted, emphasizing one line in particular, “no one can hold me back.”

Debutte talked about setting new goals each time she competes. “The pictures taken by my onstage photographer Mark Walton and backstage Gerri Weatherbee … this is where I set new challenges.  I am able to compare pictures from year to year and see where I may have improved or built on, and what body part or area I would like to put a little extra focus on for the next year of training.” But for Debutte being surrounded by old friends and new is her favourite part of the competition. “Some of these people I may see once a year but they provide such amazing feedback and support … and meeting new friends is great too, friends that I can learn from or connect with and vice versa,” she said. “I also take pride in the hard work that I put into preparing for a show and I am so grateful for the family and friends that supported me and continue to support me. It is always a wonderful celebration afterwards … and then the setting of new fitness goals begins again.” For information on the competition go to: www.teamavery.ca.

By Sue Dickens

EMC News - Warkworth Camping out is a fun event that will wrap up this year’s activities and badge challenges for the Warkworth Girl Guiding units, Sparks, Brownies, Guides and Pathfinders. From sleepovers to a fashion show to celebrating Earth Day, the girls have been busy this year and they marked some of their successes at their annual awards ceremony. Girl Guides Emily MacDonald and Jenna Russell received the Lady BadenPowell Challenge, the highest achievement at the Girl Guide level. They now move on to the Pathfinder level. To celebrate Earth Day, the Warkworth Sparks and Brownies were busy cleaning up the Mill Creek Park area while the Guides and Pathfinders cleaned County Road 25 and Old Hastings Road. The Sparks and Brownies also planted sunflower seeds to take home. A very special sleepover was held at St. Paul’s United Church for the Sparks and Brownies. “Each year a fun theme is picked to help plan the event. This year’s was Alice in Wonderland. The idea came from a Guiding UK web site,” explained Tracy Russell of the Warkworth Girl Guides. The girls had a list of challenges to complete and

had some fun too decorating their own “Mad Hatter” hat to wear at their Supper Tea Party, participating in Alice in Wonderland themed crafts and games and watching the Alice in Wonderland movie before settling down for the night. “Eighteen Sparks and Brownies along with three older Guiding girls as helpers enjoyed a fun time in Wonderland,” said Russell. The Sparks and Brownies hosted a fashion show this year at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church. “Family and friends came to view the excited but slightly nervous models. Some of the Sparks were brave showing off their bathing suits while others chose comfy PJs to model for their first outfit. The Brownies put together their own styles for their first choice,” Russell commented.
All the girls finished off the night with “stylish dresses.” “The girls were just beaming with smiles, very proud of their achievement in facing the crowd,” she added. The camping outings are what many of the girls look forward to each year. Brownie Camp (May 31June2) will be held for the third year at Pleasant Bay Camp in Consecon. The Sparks will participate in round-robin activities, picnic lunch and campfire for the day on Saturday, while the Brownies will get to experience a two-night tenting

stay. The following weekend, the Guides and Pathfinders will make the journey to Haliburton for their weekend camp at the Girl Guides of Canada Adelaide campsite. “This will be the first time the Warkworth Girls have gone to Adelaide and they are all looking forward to the experience,” said Russell. Both camps include girls from many areas including Warkworth, Campbellford, Brighton, Belleville, Trenton, Cobourg and Cloyne to name a few. “It’s a great chance for the girls of all ages to interact with girls from other areas.” This year Warkworth’s Guiding units included 13 Sparks, seven Brownies, seven Guides, two Pathfinders and one at the Ranger level, for a total of 30 girls. Russell encourages parents to think about enrolling their youngsters for next year. “We already have plans for 2-132014 … Fall Camp in September and girls are really excited as we are planning a sleepover at the Toronto Zoo’s Bush Camp,” noted Russell. Meetings are now finished until the fall but parents can register for September online at: <https://guidesontario.org> or by calling 1-800-5658111.

EMC Sports - Port Perry - The Campbellford Ontario Power Generation Bantam Cougars edged Wellesley 2 - 1 in a championship thriller to take the Port Perry Spring Classic fastball title. The Cougars went a perfect 5 - 0 over the weekend but needed their best game against Wellesley to claim the title. It was the kind of game fans love in a championship final: entertainingly close with timely hitting and clutch pitching. Wellesley scored in the top of the third on a walk and a triple to take the lead which they held until the bottom of the sixth inning when the Cougars bounced back. With two out Bailey Fife singled to right field. Next, Ty Tebo was hit by a pitch to advance to first, setting the table for Connor Petherick’s monster triple of the left centre fence which drove both runners into score giving Campbellford a 2 - 1 lead. Cougars pitcher Ben Broek refused to bend in the seventh inning even though Wellesley finished

the game with two players on base. Over the course of the game Broek yielded five hits and fanned 12 batters. Campbellford opened the tourney with a 21 - 4 win over Cobourg with Jon Lamore earning the win with a three-hit, 12 strikeout effort. They followed up that win with a 7 - 2 dusting of the Kitchener Kolts with Broek scattering five hits and sending down eight batters. Sunday morning they defeated Wellesley 8 - 2 with Jake McCaw on the mound in a seven strikeout, five hit outing. In their second last game the Cougars edged host Port Perry 10 - 6 with Lamore and McCaw combining for the victory. The OPG Cougars are all first year bantams and play out of the Stirling Men’s League where they have a 1-2 record, both losses by a single run. The team is made up of players from Campbellford, Stirling, Tweed, Belleville and Hastings. They travel to Brantford June 22 for more tourney action.

EMC Sports - Norwood - The Norwood James Gang used a third-period rally against the Sarnia Beavers to keep their unbeaten streak alive. Norwood (5-0-0) kept pace with the defending champion St. Catharines Saints (5-00) in OLA Senior B lacrosse league action but needed a burst of three unanswered goals to edge Sarnia 6 - 4 in a defensive battle at the Asphodel-Norwood Community Centre.

Sarnia opened the scoring six minutes into the game with a strike by Riley Thompson but Norwood replied with a pair of goals from Chad Evans and a single marker by Greg Reilly to build up a 3 - 1 lead heading into the second period. It was Sarnia that produced all the offence in a low-scoring second with Thompson, Ryan Charteris and Collin McDowell evening the score at 4 - 4. Norwood turned the tables in the third and ratcheted up

Parks Canada freezes lockage fees

EMC News - Trent Hills - Recreational lockage fees along the Trent-Severn and Rideau waterways will remain the same for the next three years, the federal government has decided. In making the announcement May 14, Environment Minister Peter Kent said he and Parks Canada will use the time to work with MPs, community leaders and the tourism industry “to develop and implement an improved operating model to ensure the long-term financial sustainability of the canals operations.” “It’s great news,” Trent Hills Mayor Hector Macmillan said of “the reprieve” which will give everyone, including the mayors task force he belongs to, more time “to come up with alternative solutions,” including a new way of governance for the Trent-Severn. Parks Canada “has always had challenges

with” operating the waterway, he said. “I just don’t think it’s their forte.” Marc Ackert, captain of the Kawartha Voyageur, a cruise boat, and a member of the mayors task force, said the rate freeze is “very positive for the local municipalities” as it will give them an opportunity to “work on something progressive” in the coming months. He’s been “pushing for due diligence” on how the Trent-Severn is operated The agency caused a furor a few months ago when it announced changes in service resulting from staff layoffs while proposing much higher fees for recreational boaters beginning next year, to help reduce the waterway’s annual deficit. Northumberland-Quinte West MP Rick Norlock said he and fellow MPs concerned about

the negative effects of substantial fee increases, had argued a “better way of operating” the Trent-Severn and Rideau canal systems was needed, and the minister of the environment took their case to Cabinet. Holding the line on fees that haven’t changed since 2008 for another three years “gives certainty” to people planning trips on the waterway, he said. And Parks Canada “has given a commitment that they will do everything they can to ensure there is a continual movement of boat traffic and that nobody … gets hung up in a particular lock unexpectedly,” he said. Jewel Cunningham, Ontario Waterways director for Parks Canada, said there have been “some improvements to the original concept of Please see “Parks” on page 4

EMC News - Madoc - He was known for his tenacity and his hockey skills, then for the secret he kept through most of his career. Theo Fleury is expected to arrive at Parliament Hill today (Thursday) with a crowd of supporters and a message to Ottawa policymakers about child sexual abuse. It shouldn’t ever be a secret, he says. The visit and planned 11 a.m. address marks the end of the former-NHL star’s Victor Walk from Toronto, which saw his team travel along Highway 7 last weekend with stops in Havelock, Madoc and Perth. And halfway to Parliament Hill Fleury was already calling it “a life-changing experience.” Fleury, whose life and experiences are already documented in his 2009 book Playing With Fire, says the walk is just another step in his journey along life’s path but he admits it’s a big one. And the book had a lot to do with it. “I had no idea when I wrote the book what I was getting into,” he says, but adds it was a critical part of his own healing process. And Fleury, who has made the journey from sexual assault victim to advocate for awareness and change, says the problem may actually be significantly worse than estimates reveal. Banners hung from a pair of motorhomes parked at the Quality RV Campground west of Madoc proclaim “Don’t quit before the miracle: 8 million sexually abused Canadians from victim to Victor!!” Preparing to camp for the night, accompanied by his seven fellow walkers, other team members and a pair of motor homes and a pace car, Fleury was greeted by wellwishers in Madoc which he says boosted spirits after an

exhausting day. Walkers travel four at a time, sharing the 80-kilometre distance covered daily, and support has been evident on the road as well, he says. “We’ve had an incredible response,” he says of the inaugural Victor Walk that, while raising funds, is primarily focused on raising awareness. “Orange is the colour of courage,” Fleury says, “and courage is contagious.” The team also sported pink bandanas, walking in support of a different group or individual each day. Saturday, they walked for Rehteah Parsons. And along the way, he says, he has encountered many strangers who have made the admission “me too,” and often for the first time. And the only way to travel from victim to Victor, he notes, is to get rid of the shame. “There’s empowerment with that,” he says. “There’s a lot of shame for the survivors and for their families,” he says, and overcoming past abuse comes in part through the understanding “there’s not a lot you could have done anyway. “It’s the shame that makes us silent.” But since Fleury first spoke out, he has gone on to play the part of advocate and the man behind the Victor Movement. “It’s all about awareness,” Fleury says. And the inaugural Victor Walk may well become an annual event. And the word is getting out. “They know we’re coming,” he says with a laugh when asked about his planned address at Parliament Hill. Among those joining Fleury for the walk is Kim Charlebois, executive director of the Sexual Assault Centre for Quinte and District who called the awareness-raising event “incredibly necessary.” Praising Fleury for his willingness to engage the public through his walk and Please see “Fleury” on page 3 R0012108387

by telling his story, she says the results have already been evident by the number of people showing their support along the route. Particularly impressive, she says, has been cameraman Michael David Lynch who arrived in Madoc after walking backwards, filming the participants all the way from Toronto. Lynch was busy gathering more footage for a documentary as his subjects, both visitors and Victor Walk officials, took a break just off the highway. The walk was held in support of Little Warriors, Sexual Assault Centre for Quinte and District and the Siksika Nation. Their web site, <victorwalk.com> explains:

“The Victor Movement was created to raise awareness for, and heal those who have been devastated by child sexual abuse; to that end the Victor Movement is a social good company focused on business endeavours that will create revenue to give to those chronically underfunded non-profit groups. We don’t believe Canada needs another charity, it needs companies and people who will create platforms to make money and give where needed in the world.” Theo Fleury is surrounded by his Victor Walk team members including (from left) Zoran Zelic, Dawn Robert, Becky Goodwin, Bill Goodwin, Kim Charlebois and Michael David Lynch.

Learning to work together EMC News - Belleville - The Loyalist College campus was the focal point for the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) program this past week, as 24 young people from Belleville to Etobicoke took part in a week-long event that focused on the issues of leadership, teamwork, collaboration, and making their community a better place. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Knowledge is only one small aspect of being successful,â&#x20AC;? said organizer Diane Goffin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The ability to work with others, the ability to understand where theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re coming from, the ability to work as a team, take leadership when you should and give leadership to someone else when appropriate, those are hugely important skills in every aspect of life.â&#x20AC;? First established in 1971, today the program sees participants spend a week on campus at Loyalist College each year. During that period, time is split between workshops and practical activities along with some social time, as the youth learn about contrasting leadership styles and how they can contribute back to their own communities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of opportunities for them to speak and share their ideas, and build their confidence in their abilities to share their ideas, and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re also building some wonderful contacts here,â&#x20AC;? Goffin said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;By the end of the week they have developed such close friendships â&#x20AC;Ś they are there for one another, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wonderful to see.â&#x20AC;? From Belleville, new Loyalist stu-

dent President Chantel Johnston took part, and said it was at times an incredibly â&#x20AC;&#x153;eye-openingâ&#x20AC;? experience. Describing herself as having a â&#x20AC;&#x153;bossyâ&#x20AC;? leadership style, Johnston said it was enlightening to have to interact with youth with varying and at times contrasting leadership styles. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think one of the biggest things we learned is not to treat other people the way you would like to be treated, but to treat others as they would like to be treated, because not everyone is the same,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Instead of just accepting the fact that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all different, learn how to work with everyone.â&#x20AC;? Johnston said she wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t entirely sure what to expect when she first arrived for the camp, but that the program quickly became a lot of fun as she got to know the other participants. She said it was interesting after the initial few days to start to see the ideas and principles being taught actually being applied after the dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s events had finished, sometimes without the youth even possibly being aware of what they were doing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It ended up being a lot of learning how to figure out what kind of leader you are and how to work with other people,â&#x20AC;? Johnston said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was cool to see how we all worked together, and how to not necessarily create leaders, but take people who have leadership skills and help form them into something productive.â&#x20AC;? Goffin said the program is a mix of preparing the youth for personal growth and career opportunities, and in fact it was hard to separate the two aspects at times.

Quinte SailAbility hosts Ready, Set, Wear It challenge By Kate Everson

EMC News - Quinte West - Quinte SailAbility is doing its best to make boating safe and fun for everyone. “With summer almost here, it’s time to remind the nearly 16 million Canadians who will enjoy some form of on-water recreation this year of the importance of wearing a life jacket,” said president Dennis “Fletch” Fletcher. Volunteers came armed to the Quinte SailAbility site at CFB Trenton Yacht Club on Baker Island on May 18. There were personal flotation devices (PFDs) of all kinds. The colonel wore a compact life jacket that had a simple pull cord that inflated the jacket with an imbedded CO2 cartridge. “We wear these on the helicopters,” said Wing Commander Colonel Sean Friday. He showed some of the other celebrities how to do it (and undo it.) MP Rick Norlock, MPP Rob Milligan, Fire John Mallan from Belleville helps Laura Watts from Brighton get the Quinte SailAbility boats ready. Chief John Whelan and volunteers from Photo: Kate Everson the yacht club were on hand to stand up for water safety. They all posed on a yacht tied up at the dock then went, “Ready, Set, Inflate!” and all the jackets popped at once. There were only a few misses, and eventually even those inflated. “We are fortunate to get 426 Squadron to provide us with the CO2 canisters,” Fletch noted. “They can only be used once and cost $45 each.”

Fletch said the other PFDs come already inflated but are bulkier to wear, especially when trying to navigate a vessel like a sailboat. He said there is an automatic PFD that inflates as soon as you hit the water, without having to pull the cord. It is useful if you are unconscious, and it will flip you over so your head is above water. “This is particularly helpful for sailors,” he noted. “The boom could knock you right out of the boat.” He said the inflated types are good too, but they have one problem. You could end up face down in the water. Allen Weese and his wife Orpha were two of the volunteers in the Ready, Set, Inflate from Carrying Place. Allen had two strokes in the past nine years and is in a wheelchair. He has been taking advantage of the SailAbility program that gets him sailing despite his handicap. “It’s great!” Weese said. “I can actually go sailing by myself.” Red McGillivray and his wife Sheila were also in the challenge. Red is an avid ice boater from Carrying Place. The therapeutic sailing program teaches people with all kinds of disabilities to sail in a specially designed boat that is guaranteed not to sink even when holding water. Special devices help even paraplegics get sailing. “We have blind people sailing, quadriplegics, any disability and age can

learn how to sail,” Fletch said. He explained that quadriplegics operate their boat with a “sip and puff” method which requires no functioning limbs. Program support officer Laura Watts and her sister Vanessa Watts, an instructor, both from Brighton, help people sail in the special sailboats with Quinte SailAbility. They showed how a backup boat can help them on the water with great power, but the tiny sailboats themselves are designed to be super stable and most sailors can manage them alone or with an assistant. A crane can lower a disabled person right off the dock into the boat. The only problem might be the swans. “There are dozens of swans out there in the water,” Watts said laughing. “They don’t like it if you get too close to them, especially if they have babies nearby.” A demonstration day is set for June 21 when people who might be interested in participating in Quinte SailAbility can come and try it out on the water. CFB Trenton Yacht Club has hosted one of 200 world-wide “Ready, Set, Wear It” events on May 18. While the goal was to set a world record for the most life jackets worn and inflatable life jackets inflated, the real purpose is to educate boaters on the importance of life jackets and boating safety. Safe Boating Awareness Week is May 18 to 24.

EMC Lifestyles - Strasbourg, located near the German border, is the capital and principal city of the Alsace region in eastern France. Its entire historic city centre, the Grand Ile (Grand Island) has been classified as a World Heritage Site and I found it was just a nice size for an intriguing walking tour. I strolled through this historic area with Annie Dumoulin, the Deputy Director of the Tourism Office, and I was certainly impressed. However, my favourite area of all was La Petite France (Little France), in the southwest corner, where the river Ill splits up into a number of canals and cascades through an area of medieval half-timbered houses, footbridges, and narrow cobblestoned streets. Back in the Middle Ages, this area was primarily the tanners’ quarter, so a lot of these half-timbered houses used to have animal hides hanging out to dry from their lofts. Many of these houses also stocked corn and grain in their attics, so it was common to see hooks at the top of these old buildings so these food products could be hauled up and stored. La Petite France attracts a lot of tourists and I found many photo ops here as I walked through the narrow streets and checked out the picturesque and well maintained 16th and 17th century houses located along the canals; the entire area is basically an island, with canals surrounding it. I watched boats entering and exiting a canal lock, and I discovered a large panoramic terrace at the top of the area’s Vauban Dam (the Great Lock); this dam, built in the 17th century, was an integral part of the fortifications, for the gates on the water could be closed, to block invaders’ boats, and the water level could be raised, to slow down invading pedestrian troops. I also checked out what’s left of the area’s 14th century towers, the “Ponts-Couverts” (Covered Bridges); they haven’t been “covered” since the 18th century, but the name has remained intact. The area has, more recently, added a number of trendy shops, restaurants, and luxury hotels for the tourists. Cleary visible from La Petite France is the towering edifice, Notre-Dame Cathedral; after all, it was the tallest church in the world well into the 19th century. I, of course, visited this magnificent church on my stroll, and it’s possible to ascend its tower for a spectacular panoramic view. I learned some of the church’s beautiful stained glass windows dated to the 12th century, as does

Reality Check:

Sheila Wray Gregoire EMC Lifestyles - Ancaster resident Sharlene Bosma spent Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day in agony, wondering about the fate of her husband Tim. After taking two guys out

to test drive a truck he was selling, he was never seen by his family again. His body has now been found. Police charged aviation heir Dellen Millard. Bosmaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s truck had been located at his motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s house. He had been identified as having been with Bosma. Yet when he was taken into custody, his lawyer, Deepak Paradkar, expressed incredulity that the police would zero in on his client. According to the CBC, Paradkar said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a very unassuming, humble person. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s intelligent, well-educated and financially well off, so thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no motive here.â&#x20AC;? He went on to note that Millard had attended the Toronto French School. How could someone who attended an elite private school be suspected of doing such a thing? Forgive me for feeling a little sick to my stomach at that statement. Evil knows no social class. I do not know

The Good Earth: EMC Lifestyles - Lilacs (Syringa) are the best spring flowering shrub on the face of this Good Earth. There are quite a few species within this genus but for many of us â&#x20AC;&#x153;lilacâ&#x20AC;? means Syringa vulgaris (vulgaris translates as â&#x20AC;&#x153;commonâ&#x20AC;?). On the west side of our property, along the path leading to our kitchen door, is a very old clump of what appear to be common lilacs (although the cultivar President Lincoln is also a possibility) that reaches up almost 20 feet and overhangs the path. It provides moderate shade during the summer for a collection of woodland plants and nicely separates adjacent properties. However, when this lovely lilac is in full bloom, as it is today, the air is infused with an unmistakeable fragrance. Owing to its size, the blooms are not visible as one passes under the canopy. Guests will often pause on the path and look around for the source of the scent; when they finally look up and see the beautiful flower panicles they take a deeper breath and smile â&#x20AC;Ś always.

Evil knows no social class

There is much contentious discussion about native and introduced plants and the appropriateness of adopting one of the two philosophies. This is a big world with many intricate ecosystems scattered across its surface. Often, an introduction of an organism from without that cultural enclave causes havoc with undesirable results. Sometimes, the opposite is true. My philosophy is â&#x20AC;&#x153;caveat consitorâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;planter beware.â&#x20AC;? As best as I can determine, our lilacs are direct descendants from plants growing in middle Europe, having come to North America in the mid 1600s via the Silk Route. (Wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t you like to see the stamps on that passport?) So, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m happy that this outsider was brought to our continent. The Central Experimental Farm has a very well researched page on their web site, <http://www.friendsofthefarm.ca/>. There are many types of lilacs with unique characteristics of colour, bloom time, form and ultimate

whether Millard is guilty or not; but I find this â&#x20AC;&#x153;why would a wealthy person do this?â&#x20AC;? statement offensive in the extreme. Are we supposed to believe that rich=good and poor=bad? A few years ago I read a brilliant book by psychiatrist M. Scott Peck of The Road Less Traveled fame. In People of the Lie he wrote about the most frustrating part of his practice: coming face to face with evil. And evil people, he thinks, canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be cured, short of a major spiritual intervention. What they need is a priest, not a doctor. Over and over again Scott Peck saw in his office people whose state of mind couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be explained by their upbringing, or by psychiatric theory, or by conditioning. He saw people who chose to lie when the truth wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have harmed them. He saw people who cared nothing of those around them, while still giv-

it around so that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re the ones with the problem. They canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be pinned down. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re slippery. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re slimy. And theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re scary. Peck ended his investigation weary and disheartened. Psychiatry does not have the answers for evil people. They canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be â&#x20AC;&#x153;cured,â&#x20AC;? except perhaps by an exorcist. Therefore, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to call a spade a spade and not muddy it up with diagnoses making it sound as if these people arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t culpable. So, Mr. Paradkar, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know if your client is guilty, but I do know that rich people can cause havoc just as much as poor people can. And until we admit that evil has no bounds and no excuse, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be living a lie as much as they are. Instead of lies, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tell the truth: Evil exists. Evil can be anywhere. And evil needs to be resisted, not excused.

size. Without a doubt there is a lilac for just about every spot on your estate except for deep shade. Our small city property hosts the previously mentioned common lilac, a Madame Lemoine French hybrid, an unknown shrub that was identified by a plantsman as a Belgian lilac, a Tinkerbelle and a Bloomerang, and a Japanese silk lilac tree. The latter is S. reticulata â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ivory Silkâ&#x20AC;? and was introduced by Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sheridan Nursery in 1973. This allows us to extend our lilacs-in-bloom time from mid-May to mid-June; however, there is no doubt that the French hybrids are the most fragrant and the most colourful. That doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean that others

such as S. x prestoniae (named after Isabella Preston; who is to Canadian horticultural as Emily Carr is to Canadian artists) with colours ranging from white (Miss Canada) to pink (James MacFarlane) to deep red (Donald Wyman); such as S. x hyacinthiflora with a colour palette that brings a deeper pink (Sweetheart) than Prestonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jimmy Mac and a vigorous white (Mt. Baker); and, such as many combinations of Japanese and Korean â&#x20AC;&#x153;dwarfâ&#x20AC;? lilacs which include Tinkerbelle and Miss Kim, dwarf in the sense that they top out under seven feet. Here is my â&#x20AC;&#x153;bestâ&#x20AC;? list and, not unsurprisingly, they are all S. vulgaris cultivars. Best pur-

Best yellow: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Primrose,â&#x20AC;? when young the buttery buds open to a, perhaps disappointing, light cream colour but as the shrub ages, the yellow will intensify. Best red: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mongeâ&#x20AC;? with a purple undertone and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Congoâ&#x20AC;? with a carmine ruby influence. Best white: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mme Lemoine.â&#x20AC;? Best pink: nothing because, while â&#x20AC;&#x153;Belle de Nancyâ&#x20AC;? is considered a good choice, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really favour the colour. Best blue: there are so many shades, tones, hues and subtle tints that it is difficult to select one. Always go to the nursery when it is in bloom; there will

ing the impression that their love could not be questioned. He saw people who would lie to your face, but when accused of it would question your sanity. These people were dedicated to deception for one reason: to deflect any responsibility for their own moral choices. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the fact that evil people do wrong that is so terrible, says Peck. All of us do wrong. But, Peck says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;the central defect of the evil is not the sin but the refusal to acknowledge it.â&#x20AC;? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s narcissism to the nth degree. And these people are everywhere. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doctors, and lawyers, and executives. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re married. They look outwardly normal, but they cause chaos wherever they go.

The weekly event which takes place between 5:30 and dusk every Thursday evening right

through to mid-September, attracts classic car owners and enthusiasts from both the local area and from points afar. Over the course of the season, participants have been known to arrive from Toronto and Kingston. The event, which is hosted by members of the #7 Classic Cruisers has become increasingly popular with the owners of the gleaming reminders of automotive history, with al-

most 70 cars, dating back as far as 1929, lining both sides of main street on May 16, which resulted in club vice president Brian Young commenting, “It’s a really nice turnout; pretty good for the first night.” Irene Redpath who travelled from Frankford for the fun, said of Marmora’s Cruise Night, “It’s the best one going and we enjoy coming here because everyone is so friend-

from Marmora, agreed, saying, “We’ve got the very best Cruise Night around.” Although there is music to be heard every Thursday night, over the course of the season, there will be added entertainment, the schedule including Rick Foster on May 23, Matt Dowsett as Elvis on June 27, members of Angela Maracle’s Dance Studio on July 18, Freddy Vette along with a corn roast on August 15, and western theme nights on July 4

Motocross opens in Madoc

EMC News - Madoc - Over 100 families camped out in Madoc Victoria Day weekend to participate in the first meet of motocross racing at the Madoc Fairgrounds. Maguireâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Motocross Racing Series (MMRS) is known for its high level of competition on well maintained tracks. Four years ago John Maguire developed a state-of-the-art track in an unused portion of the Madoc Fairgrounds. Together with the Madoc Agricultural Society (MAS) they host five racing events throughout the season. Maguire said for safety it is â&#x20AC;&#x153;â&#x20AC;Ś best to have a practice day before race day. This way riders get to know the track and build confidence.â&#x20AC;? Maguireâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and the agricultural society managed to have ten days approved by Madoc Township council, but were hoping for one more day for. Maguire said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;That one day makes a difference. It means riders will have to go out without practice. We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like to do that.â&#x20AC;? Dave Chappell of the MAS board said there had been two noise complaints and council decided to limit track time; he said the board hopes council will reconsider in the future. Maguire is willing to work with the limitations. His membership brings in close to 1,000 people for any one event with proceeds of the gate split with MAS. Along with running a food booth, the fair board can profit by $3,000 each race weekend, which they use to improve buildings and facilities on the grounds. Currently, MMRS is running the nine-race Hindle Exhaust Provincial series, using five different tracks (Co-

The national event, August 23 to 25, is expected to draw from 800 to 1,000 racers. Other meets in Madoc this year are June 8 and 9, June 22 and 23 and September 21 and 22. Maguire said they are willing to hire and train local people for temporary or full-time positions with the crew. Anyone interested in working at the events can contact him at 905-349-2711. All practices and race events are open to the public with a gate fee of $10 per day.

Blues in the Schools visits two local schools By Sue Dickens

EMC News - Warkworth “Blues in the Schools” (BITS) program is still going strong after more than three decades as it brings musicians to students to conduct classes on the history of the blues, famous blues musicians, different styles of blues, and how to write, sing and perform the blues. Students at Percy Centennial Public School in Warkworth and St. Mary Catholic Elementary School in Campbellford were

among those who were lucky enough to have Canadian blues and roots musician Rick Fines who has been writing songs, recording and touring for over 25 years, teach the BITS program at their school. “The essential part, to encourage the students to express themselves, is of great value whether they are writing a song or experimenting with creating a melody on their own,” Fines told Trent Hills Regional News. Last year BITS was brought to

Kent School and again to Percy by The Loyal Blues Fellowship of Belleville, which has a BITS program in place. “Any form of self-expression helps the kids discern if they like what they have created and in that whole process to understand who they are. The more someone knows about themselves the better chance they have in the world,” said Fines. “The two schools selected to get the program this year offered to pay half the cost, providing

matching funding,” said Jane Archer. She and her son Matt organized the pre-Party for Peck event held earlier this year at the Aron Theatre, as a memorial to her son Jesse “Peck” Archer, a talented musician who was tragically killed in June 2010. The event raises money for BITS. Another fund raiser was the Church Key Spring Revival, now in its 11th year, which was held earlier this month. This is a “signature” fund raiser by Church Key Brewing Company. The final and main fund-raising

event, the third annual Party For Peck will be held on August 3. “It will feature six to eight local bands on a festival stage with state-of-the-art sound and light provided by Clarington Pro Sound who are donating their services, raffles, silent auction, overnight camping, great local food and more at a rural property on Thompson Road near Campbellford,” explained Archer. She has her own musical career as the lead vocalist and manager of the Balls and Jane Blues Band. Her son Matt, who plays bass

in the 24th Street Wailers, is scheduled to perform at the Party for Peck. If enough money is raised, there will be more schools enjoying the BITS program. “We plan to present the Rick Fines program in our remaining elementary schools in the fall, provided our 2013 fund raising is successful and so far we are keeping pace,” Archer told Trent Hills Regional News. For more information check out their Facebook page: <https:// www.facebook.com/PartyforPeck>.
