Community rallies a surprise parade to lift woman’s spirits adam BramBurger

Staff writer

Brenda McQuaid was having a hard time preparing to play ball last Wednesday at the Picton fairgrounds. After going to the park with her cousin Tasha Foote, McQuaid heard a lot of commotion coming from Main Street and she couldn’t help but think the worst at the time. “I just heard a lot of sirens,” she recalled. “I thought maybe there’s a fire or an accident. I was just thinking something was wrong.” It turns out something was right. More than 175 people, including some McQuaid had never met rallied to walk through downtown Picton just to brighten her day. A single mother of two, McQuaid was diagnosed with stage four adino carcenoma cancer in both of her lungs last year. Intense chemotherapy started last fall to maintain the cancer had not been successful in limiting it, leaving McQuaid only limited and costly options for treatment. Recently, a few friends saw a blog McQuaid posted online looking for donations and help to go through the process, which has also prevented her from Carol Brough

work. Longtime friend Brandylee Bradley-Wilkes recalled getting a message from her friend Carrie Philip about the blog. Both agreed at the time they wanted to help somehow. The friends decided they’d make a hope box to bring donations and cards to McQuaid and they also thought to put an event on Facebook and invite as many people as they could

to participate in it. “It turned out huge, much more quickly than we thought it would,” she said. “The first day we had 60 people, the second day 100, and then more than 150 the third.” Wednesday night, those people gathered at the Mary Street parking lot. The were young and old, some from town and some not. One woman, also a cancer survivor, came from

the Belleville area just to be part of the event. Many wore purple — McQuaid’s favourite colour, and carried balloons or inspirational signs for the walk. Bradley-Wilkes said likely most were drawn by McQuaid’s own positive attitude in the face of her situation. “Absolutely, she has been so positive,” she said. “You never see that girl without a smile on her face.” She said that a few years ago, even before she was diagnosed McQuaid joined a Relay For Life team she helped organize even without knowing who the team was walking for and she and her boys were right at the centre of the activities. Behind the escort of two police cars and in front of a bus donated for the event, the mob wound its way down Elizabeth Street and across Main chanting Brenda’s name and getting louder as they reached the home stretch past Shire Hall to the fairgrounds complex. Once the group entered into the park, McQuaid’s mom TerryLee Davidson raced ahead and embraced her as she wiped away the tears forming in her daughter’s eyes. Many more tears flowed from a wide range of faces as the entire parade entered into choruses of Stand By Me and Lean on Me as they took turns embracing McQuaid and dropping messages into the hope box until it was jammed full.

SECTION

About a decade ago and their industry in shambles due to the outbreak of bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE), The cattlemen of Prince Edward County were in need of a helping hand. They got that hand thanks to a caring community who understood that this County was founded on the principles of doing a good turn for your neighbour when he or she is in need. In recent years, it's been the Prince Edward Cattlemen’s Association’s (PECA ) turn to give back and while they've supported agricultural youth groups like the local 4-H beef club and sponsored an agriculture scholarship through proceeds of their annual steer show and sale, the association has taken on a much broader task in supporting the Prince Edward Family Health Team (PEFHT) and their plan to establish a local and fully functioning cardiac rehab program. This past weekend, the PECA organized and hosted a wonderful gala dinner and live auction at Casa Dea Estates Winery, raising over $20,000 for the program's exercise equipment fund. The fund will offset the costs of treadmills, elliptical machines, rowing machines, gym mats and other needs for when the program is fully ramped up at its new location at the Picton Clinic. The cost of this equipment, like other medical equipment, is not covered through the Ministry of Health and Longterm Care. According to PEFHT executive director Duff Sprague, the program has been running since April but has been scattered, using facilities at the Prince Edward Fitness and Aquatic Centre and other locations. The fact the program is now up and running is great news for Prince Edward County residents that have undergone a coronary episode.

Community raises thousands to help with treatment

PARADE, from page 1

McQuaid was left almost speechless by the generosity displayed. “I appreciate everybody’s support. I really don’t know what else to say right now,” she said. According to BradleyWilkes, thousands of dollars of donations rolled in, however, that was always the secondary focus of what she was hoping to achieve that night. “It wasn’t really about raising money, it was about lifting her spirits and showing Brenda that we’re all here for her,” she said. Davidson said her entire family was really moved by the outpouring of support shown for her daughter — not only in the parade, but repeatedly since the diagnosis in September. “We are blessed to live in such a tight knit community that certainly comes together in times of need,” she said. “We would like to express our deepest thanks to

with the battle. The crowd lingered around the fairgrounds for a while exchanging encouragements, and — in a better frame of mind than when she arrived — McQuaid said she was preparing to play her baseball game just as she always would. “I’m going to try, at least, if my eyes aren’t swelled shut by them” she said, still wiping away tears.

Coupled with the parade, there was an online auction staged to benefit McQuaid, while many people in the county have also come forward to do what they can through events like yard sales, penny drives, and fundraisers. The Heritage Hall has also been involved and they donated the money raised from one of their Sunday meals to help the family

Ameliasburgh show attempts to keep families involved together AdAmBrAmBurger

Staff writer

Like the many classic cars it attracts each summer, the Prince Edward Auto Club’s Ameliasburgh Street Meet just gets better with fine tuning and age. On the shores of Roblin Lake for the 38th installment this weekend, the club’s president Dave Grimmon said the show is nothing like it was when it started on Salmon Point. “You know, when the show first started all the guys were 20 years old. When you're 20, you think things last forever,” he said. “ I'm 65 and you get thinking you need someone to move it on if you want it to keep going. To do that get families coming in and hopefully the kids will get interest in everything.” Over time, and particularly in the past five years, Grimmon says the show has really evolved into a family-friendly activity. It is one of the few car shows where owners can camp right next to their classic vehicles and it is also one of the few where there are children’s games worked right into the itinerary for the weekend. Even the types of cars allowed makes the event one that’s geared to an allages audience. “Right now it's supposedly pre-'79. The older cars are getting far more expensive. A 40-year-old with two kids can't go out and buy $100,000 or even $50,000 roadrunners, but he will go out and buy a Mustang GT or Camaro,” he said. “It’s still a family car but a sports car. Really, just about anyone who has done something to their car,

we can handle it.” The prizes in Ameliasburgh have also changed to reflect that trend. Instead of awarding show prizes by decade, the Street Meet participants are now invited to select their top 10 cars from the entire show regardless of their vintage. While rain clouds were looking a bit ominous, heading into the weekend on Friday, Grimmon said he felt the show had the potential to be the best yet. “We normally get 75 people preregistered and this year we had 100. That typically represents about 50 per cent of all entrants,” he said. “We’ve had a phenomenal response from outside (the club).” Grimmon said he felt he was born with an interest in cars. He bought a 1970 GTX new and said that was piqued his interest. Back then, he said cars drew the interest of more youth as they didn’t have to compete with some of the gadgets people use today. “Back then, the muscle

cars were the big thing. We didn’t have all these electronics or WiFi,” he said. Grimmon’s wife and son have also jumped into classic cars wholeheartedly and help out with the show. There on the grounds, they have a number of friends they typically meet this time of year, many with similar stories. Dee Gaunt said that she and her wife Ed have been trekking to Ameliasburgh since the show’s early stages. Now, however, their children and grandchildren are joining them too. “We have three generations now, it’s awesome,” she said. “It’s a good, clean family-oriented weekend that just happens to be carrelated.” Gaunt said that she and her husband have five show cars now with their enthusiasm — and actually their livelihood — coming from their exposure to classic cars at a young age. “I started working on cars when I was 13, my husband much, much soon-

er,” she said. “I’ve always been interested in cars and since I was five, I was determined I’d own my own ‘57 Chevy. It took a long time, but I’ve done it.” Gaunt said she and her husband own an auto repair shop in Trenton and specialize in the repair of classic cars. Not surprisingly, she said, most of their cientele finds its way to Ameliasburgh also. “When you start building a car from the frame up, you put a lot of time, effort, blood, sweat and tears into it,” she said. “You want someone who is going to respect it the way you do.”

PRINCE EDWARD COUNTY

THURSDAY, AUGUST 16, 2012

Picton Gazette 80 years ago — 1932

■ Dr. Tayler, of Wellington, gave a guest sermon at the Picton United Church, where he told congregants that 10,000 people of the 16,000 living in the county were not connected to any church. He challenged them to evangelize 1,000 people over the course of 1932. ■ Plans were in place for the 80th county fair with a two-day exhibition planned for a Wednesday and Thursday. An improved track and expanded entry into the horse racing event appeared to be a highlight for the milestone event. ■ A yacht reported stolen from wealthy Clayton, N.Y. residents near Pt. Traverse had not been located despite a lengthy search of the area. Many believed the vessel was in the possession of area rum runners. The suspect’s identity was reportedly known, but no trace of his whereabouts was available.

50 years ago — 1962

■ A political “who’s who” was in Picton as part of a Commonwealth Parliamentary Association convention. Ontario speaker William Murdoch gave a keynote address to many provincial, federal, and international colleagues at the Royal Hotel. The visiting delegates also enjoyed a private reception at Mayor Harvey J. McFarland’s home in the evening. ■ Ted Pearce, a former president of Canadian Canners Ltd. and a prominent figure in the canning industry for more than 50 years died at age 79. Pearce was an active Mason and Shriner and a member of the Anglican Church. ■ Picton finance chairman James Bird was pleased to report the town does not owe the bank any money as he prepared an interim statement for councillors in which he could report the town had $5,448.93 in the bank without any outstanding debts to pay off.

30 years ago — 1982

■ A large majority of the producers respondents to an informal poll conducted by the Gazette responded in favour of seeing a farmers’ market re-established in Picton. Some suggested competition between producers of similar goods and time away from larger markets in Belleville and Kingston as possible complications with the idea. ■ For the fifth consecutive year, there was sunny weather for the Athol Celebration Day events, which drew thousands of people to Cherry Valley to participate in a range of activities. ■ Faye Roblin earned gold in javelin at th senior provincial track and field championships in Sudbury with a personal best throw of 46.82 metres. ■ Picton OPP dropped its investigation into North Marysburgh’s finances. Reeve Gordon Norton said “he wasn’t exactly satisfied” with the news, but declined further comment

10 years ago — 2002

■ A banner year for construction in Prince Edward County saw the total value of building within the municipality reach $25 million with potential for more growth to come. There were permits for 99 new homes through July, compared to 112 for all of 2001. ■ Councillors were told that insurance would cover the cost of replacing a county fire truck that caught fire during a Sophiasburgh grass fire call.

Days like this make a summer drought tolerable The lake we were on has no public access. You need to know someone. That’s what makes this lake so special, for you are alone with only its wildlife residents for company. This day is indeed very special. The early morning fog has not yet lifted as we paddle along over a mirror-like surface, with the distant shoreline barely peeking through the smoky haze of daybreak. As the sun seizes brief moments to poke through openings in the mist, it illuminates the distant woods, sending mirrored images of the trees upon the glass-flat water. Then, as briefly as the sun appears, the fog takes control once again and cloaks the water in an almost surreal backdrop of shadowy hardwoods. Unlike drought stricken trees elsewhere that are showing signs of stress, these trees are green and vibrant for they are part of this swamp where water is not an issue. We pass by some curious cattle on a dry, upland pasture field, one of few open areas along this shoreline. Throughout the lake’s perimeter, its shores are buffered by impressive mats of white water lilies, accented by forests of lavender blue pickerelweed. On root bound embankments, swamp loosestrife keeps the inclines from eroding. Despite its name, it is not related to loosestrife, nor is it a willow which is its other name. Water-willow prefers this environment, growing tall, then, by sheer weight of its blossoms and foliage, gently bends over to seemingly caress the water as though in some kind of spiritual ceremony. A distant loon yodels but we fail to catch sight of it until we are finished with our paddle.

OUTDOOR RAMBLES TERRY SPRAGUE

But, the morning is filled with the sounds of great blue herons in flight. Their cousin, the diminutive green heron, is present too. Not in ones and twos as we normally find these shy creatures of creeks and shorelines, but in small groups (known in bird-speak as a “siege”) of up to four at a time. Where had they come from, and where are they going so purposefully? We ended the morning with at least 12 and that is a high number indeed for such a relatively small body of water. The water is shallow in this lake and we scrape bottom a few times and struggle to get over areas saturated with silt and decaying aquatic plants. In other areas, the water is deep, but decidedly murky. Wetland birds love such conditions and others show up, like a single blue-winged teal, pied-billed grebes, and spotted sandpipers bouncing along nervously on the tips of their wings beside the muddy shoreline. There are fish here or, at least, the promise of fish, as several belted kingfishers fly their determined route

over the water to perches that summon them from the opposite shore. Two American bitterns fly shoulder to shoulder, focussed on some far off destination, for they don’t stop. It is truly a day for birds. A David Attenborough video could not produce better variety. Some birds we don’t see, but we can hear. A greater yellowlegs is never found, even though at one point we feel as though we can reach out and touch it somewhere. Yet, it calls several times, its diagnostic three-syllabled whistle piercing the shoreline from some hidden bog. The drawling note of a common tern, more symbolic of Presqu’ile than anywhere here, is heard. Finally, we spot it, flying overhead, later followed by a Caspian tern, uncharacteristically quiet as it passes by. Swamp sparrows belabour heavy chipping sparrow quality notes from deep within the cattails, but missing from centre stage are the prattles from marsh wrens. At this time of the year they are usually very chatty as they become more gregarious preparatory to the flight south. No soras, no Virginia rails, but something that sounds like a least bittern gives a few indistinct cuckoo-like notes, but the call is not heard again. Perhaps a bullfrog as there are a few chortles from them as we skirt the edge of the marsh. For most, it is the summer doldrums when it is too hot to sing for no reason. We won’t hear much vocalization from birds until next month when autumnal recrudescence kicks in. That is when the photoperiod becomes similar to what they experience in the spring, and their reproductive proclivities return for an encore.

Still, we hear much for an August morning. One – no, two — eastern wood-pewees sing from the woodland, seemingly carrying on a distant conversation with each other. Just once, a faint interrogation from a red-eyed vireo sifts through the trees, one of few birds that sings monotonously all day long, no matter what the temperature. As expected, a small gaggle of Canada geese is seen on the far shore, their shadowy forms shimmering above the surface of the water like a mirage. A scattering of ducks shows up in the binoculars as silhouettes against the sun; likely mallards. It happens that way sometimes. Skilled ears and a feel for profiles can attach names to some birds, while others remain unidentified. The abundance of waterfowl and wetland birds on our leisurely paddle may be attributed to the absence this year of a resident pair of mute swans on this lake, a species that drives native birds from their nesting grounds with unforgiving and often, fatal attacks. The lake is rebounding. We need moments like this, when, without apology, we can slip a canoe or kayak into the water and just let Nature soothe the soul, if only for a little while before returning to the stress of day to day concerns. It was my third time here, on a lake that fails to disappoint. For more information on today’s topic, please e-mail tsprague@kos.net or phone 613-476-5072.

Intoxicated man creates disturbance in Morrison Point area

A 25-year-old Alderville man was arrested and held after creating a disturbance in the Morrison Point Road area Sunday night. The Prince Edward OPP was notified by three separate occasions that a man was wan-

dering around yelling and banging on doors just after 1 a.m. A short time later, investigating officers located a man who appeared intoxicated. The officers learned the suspect had been camping nearby

with a group of friends, including his girlfriend. Upon further investigation, police learned the man had previous conditions outstanding requiring him to abstain from consuming alcohol and to not be in the presence of his

girlfriend. The man was charged with failure to comply with an undertaking and was held for in custody to await a bail hearing.

The mushroom grew out of the decomposing stump of a tree. Smith said she has tried to identify the mushroom, even contacting Highline Mushrooms’ Wellington plant, but had been unable to do so as of press time. (Chad Ibbotson/Gazette staff)

Quebec sovereignty shouldn’t be worry for Canadians

WITH Quebec expecting to head to the polls in the coming months and Premier Jean Charest’s popularity hovering among the lowest levels of any provincial leader in Canada, it appears our neighbouring province is once again going to be governed by a party leaning toward sovereignty. That doesn’t necessarily mean that Quebeckers will head right back to the polls for a referendum on separation — nor does it necessarily mean they want to leave confederation, they are just simply disenfranchised with the governance of the party that has championed itself as federalist. A recent Angus Reid poll suggests that just one-fifth of Quebec residents felt that backing the Parti Quebecois would be support of going down that road. Across Canada, only a slightly higher number (29 per cent) fear that is going to happen in the coming years. While it may not be soon enough for the members of that party who left caucus over a perceived snail’s pace of the sovereignty cause, or the many people in Quebec who counted medals by that province’s athletes separately at the recent Olympic Games, the vote likely will mean a Quebec government that’s not afraid to push in every way it can for its own self interest in receiving special powers within the Canadian Confederation, while still working to build up separatist sentiment to the point where it may one day be a viable question. The trouble with this approach is that it isn’t exactly in the nation’s interest to be deciding how it is going to cater to Quebec when it is working through a broader economic crisis — and thus, the potential Quebec government is pushing all the buttons it needs to push to create anti-federalist sentiment in future years. The trick of it all is that, right now, Canadians don’t need to be bothering themselves with how to satisfy Quebec, but rather how to best move forward with one of the world’s leading economies, which also happens to be blessed with an abundance of natural resources. These aren’t the days of Jean Chretien, either, where a majority government was built on Quebec. Stephen Harper’s majority barely made a dent there, and thus, he likely knows that unless the Liberals can get their own acts together to capture the whole province — a long shot with a separatist party in provincial government and no leader of yet— or the NDP find a way to surge, he doesn’t need to pander to Quebec to become elected the next time around. Perhaps it is best that Ottawa just ignore the threat of a referendum and the demands of the potential Quebec government, unless they are demands shared by all provincial partners at the table and let the situation play out as it may. In that situation, the Parti Quebecois may realize they’d be more profitable focusing on the issues they can fix within their own borders which encapsulate the society they purport to care most about, rather than seeking concessions or a pie-in-the-sky separation.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Where are the ‘meat and potatoes’ in coverage?

I woke up early Friday morning, looked out my front window and noticed the blue bag filled with the local newspapers. First off I dumped the gazillion Inever-look-at flyers into the recycle bin, and then took the papers back to bed with my morning cuppa cuppa looking to be inspired. I should have done what I normally do in the morning; do my morning meditation followed by yoga. I’ll do it after I write this letter. What a disappointment. Not that the local news is bad, but, the ‘big picture’ is not evident. The papers are all about garagistes, the hundreds of realtors luring yet another tourist to embrace ‘The County”, and move here, Cherry Jubilees, feline art to help the humane societies ‘out of control’ cat accu-

mulation, ‘to wind turbine or not to wind turbine’, yet another festival or craft fair to entertain us and lure us to hand over our cash or keep us drunk. Is everyone asleep, I ask myself? Many people I meet are in complete denial of or totally uninformed of the pending earth changes and underlying despotism and the complete complacency happening in our government offices doesn’t help matters either. It seems that the dark forces are still having a heyday — distracting humans. I’m looking for some meat and potatoes, some truth to be exposed, some message of the earth changes that are transpiring in our world today in my local newspapers despite the fact that the government is not making statements to

this affect. There is something transpiring on this fine planet that has long been predicted and several well respected Russian scientists are now revealing. We can no longer ignore the fact that the earth’s north pole shifting has practically doubled in the past 50 years, that earthquakes and geomantic explosions all winter in Siberia (reported at the Geophysical Institute in Siberia) have created our warmest and driest winter on record in North America, and that the rapid melting of the ice on the poles will create either a geomantic reversal or a geomantic excursion, perhaps as soon as July, 2013. The magnetics of earth changing rapidly are preliminary precataclysm signals. Check out the crop circles that have been manifesting

in the U.K. this summer...there are messages in them from the many ETC’s that are making them. And don’t tell me they are hoaxes either. Have a look at their complexity. I’ve had the pleasure of spending 10 days standing in them in the U.K. and receiving one a few years ago on my northern British Columbia property that my military fighter pilot ex-husband will verify. It is time to wake up; pay attention to what is coming up for humanity and our planet...like global purification, in which case one needs to prepare for change by embracing awareness. If you are not prepared for everything you are prepared for nothing.

In 2014 we will have results from Health Canada’s research on adverse health effects from industrial wind turbines built close to residences. This will help future governments plan safe turbine locations. Meanwhile, as turbine construction continues, thousands more Canadians are being subjected to undetermined degrees of risk. Something must be done now. Health Canada already has sufficient evidence of adverse health effects to justify its major investment in this study involving its proposed

sample of 2000 Canadians. That evidence s is surely sufficient to justify an immediate moratorium on further construction of IWTs, using the “precautionary principle” routinely used to keep food and drug products off the market until proven safe. According to its web site, Health Canada’s first Objective is: “By working with others in a manner that fosters the trust of Canadians, Health Canada strives to: Prevent and reduce risks to individual health and the overall environment…etc”. Health Canada now

needs to maintain the trust of Canadians by preventing and reducing further health risks from IWTs. Until research results are available, it needs to prohibit the operation of turbines within at least 5 km from residences, within which distance the health effects will be researched. To enable its research, Health Canada may need to allow some turbines to continue for a limited time. However, Health Canada also needs to minimize further risks from these massive generators of electricity,

noise, vibration, infrasound and “shadow flicker” by prohibiting their ongoing operation near residences until its research is complete. Many Canadians have already reported adverse health effects. While the moratorium is in effect, governments will have an opportunity to discuss how Canadians may be compensated for health concerns already caused by turbines constructed too close to their homes.

Pipeline decision adds to skepticism surrounding health review IllusIonIst Jean Deshaies will be performing his magic routine this Saturday at the Picton Town Hall as part of a library program.

John Legate writes that “big oil” is deathly afraid of wind energy. Why then are they building wind turbines all over Ontario and elsewhere? Tar sands money is behind the Ostrander Point

project as well as many others in Ontario. All the more reason to be skeptical about the results of Stephen Harper’s study of the health effects of turbines. A few days ago Harper spoke from Calgary about

how the Gateway oil pipeline assessment would be based only on science. The week before he had announced that no matter what the joint review panel recommends for the pipeline that his cabinet

would make the final decision. I didn’t know that Harper’s cabinet is made up of scientists. Myrna Wood Picton

Macaulay volunteers put on good show at Rediscover Delhi event

On Thursday myself and several of my family members attended " Rediscover Delhi and the 218th birthday of Reverend Macaulay celebrations at Macaulay House.

Picton Rotarians to tee off again to benefit hospital, other local causes next Friday Tournament has raised more than $250,000 in 22 years AdAm BrAmBurger Staff writer

Next Friday, Picton Rotarians and their guests will be teeing up in an attempt to make a difference locally. The 23rd annual Wilf Harrison Memorial Charity Golf Tournament is one way the club brings in money to support the Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital as well as other community causes. “It’s one of our three major fundraisers along with the oyster fest and cash calendar,” said president Kirsten Musgrove. “Generally it raises about $15,000.” The tournament, which used to be known as the Rotary Golf Classic was started in 1989 as part of Rotary’s response to a need for the community to match a $3 million provincial investment in the local hospital. The club pledged to raise $50,000 to help

upgrade the facility. Rotarian Leo Finnegan said he and Harrison worked together as cochairs on that first tournament and many in the years to come. Finnegan explained Harrison was a stock broker who settled on Sheba’s Island and brought with him a tremendous dedication to serve through fundraising activities. “He passed away in 1993 and we named it after him in recognition,” Finnegan added. For many years, a highlight of the tournament was the attendance of brothers Bobby and Dennis Hull. The ex-NHLers were an instant draw with their witty humour and tales from the big leagues. Everything runs its course, however, and the Hulls are no longer featured guests — Jim Johnson will serve as the dinner speaker again this year —

yet the money continues to roll in. The tournament has made more than $250,000 over the years with $80,000 of that going directly to the hospital. Last year, the tournament brought in a total of $18,500. A change this year will be in the prizes handed out by Rotary to the golfers — in fact, there will be no prize table, but Finnegan says that is a good thing. “All the golfers will receive a $50 gift card they can spend at Canadian Tire, Home Hardware, and Sobeys,” he said. Finnegan said though it took a bit of an effort to arrange the program, it will produce a better outcome than the previous system which saw inequalities in the prizes offered and a lot of time taken out of the evening’s program while the prizes are selected. Also included in the package for $185 per player is 18 holes of golf in a 1 p.m. shotgun at the Picton Golf and Country Club with cart, lunch, a AAA prime rib dinner, and a grab bag. In the past, organizations like the Air Cadets, Quinte Conservation’s day camp program, local food banks, Glenwood Cemetery and student bursary programs have also benefitted from the tournament. “The hospital will still be a primary focus, but the other funds raised will go back into the community as well,” said Musgrove.

With low attendance, financial pressures, congregation turns to community

Consecon United Church praying for direction Chad ibbotson

Staff writer

Members of the Consecon United Church are looking to the public for help and ideas to save a ministry that appears to be facing serious challenges. Sue Holmes and her family have been members of the church for five years, but she said its decline has been noticeable in even that relatively short length of time. Holmes said the waning energy of aging members, attendance and finances have made things very difficult and said it seems only fair to inform the public of the situation. “We have declining enrollment and attendance. We're a two-point charge (with Carrying Place United Church)

for one thing and we're looking at whether to amalgamate or whether to stay separate,” she said. She said although Consecon United and Carrying Place United share a minister, it's difficult to imagine how one church could survive without the other. Amalgamation would be a last resort. Holmes said at present it doesn't seem viable to amalgamate since that could reduce attendance and ultimately that would put even more strain on the church's finances. “We're going to the community and letting them know there's a problem. There's a lot of people sitting out there saying '’That is my church' but they don't realize what state the church is in,”

she said. “Financial is the big (challenge). I don't think we could support a minister there (if the churches amalgamated).” She said the buildings also need regular maintenance and the aging congregation means that work is falling behind. The church currently has a contract with an interim minister to provide coverage for about 60 per cent of the week and to help find alternatives in preparation for calling a new minister to begin next June. Holmes said a full-time minister would be ideal, but isn't financially viable at this point. “We're facing whether to go to a part-time ministry, we're just looking at all our options,” said Holmes. She said it's important for

her personally to make sure both churches remain open. “There's really no public Christian presence from Wellington right through to Trenton now if we disband, if we fall down,” she said. In the meantime she said the church is trying to get community input and ideas for using the building and other ways to remain viable in the community such as changing how or when services are delivered. “The church isn't a closed club. It's supposed to be community oriented,” she said. She said the congregation is open to offering a different mode of worshipping. “Maybe Sunday morning isn't the best time. Maybe midweek. We're looking at a number of options,” she said. Although the Consecon United Church is declining, Holmes said it's not alone. “All the churches are declining and the United Church has to look at how to be viable in our society. Maybe Sunday morning worship is just becoming a thing of the past,” she said. Currently the church offers a women's group with the United Church Women, a men's group with AOTS, mid-week youth group for children ages 11-14 and offers Sunday youth programs and Bible study as needed. The church hall is also available for rentals. Holmes said the church is always looking for new members and anyone is welcome. She said residents can feel free to drop in, visit and share ideas or call the church office at 613-392-2146.

Construction association’s golf tournament builds bursary fund for trades While the group of Andy, Lyle, and Tim Lloyd and Brad Richmond turned in the lowest scorecard in last Thursday’s Prince Edward County Construction Association golf scramble, the big winners will be students studying the trades. Association member Wayne Burtch confirmed for the Gazette that the tournament brought in approximately $1,800 to build a bursary program for PECI students pursuing education in the skilled trades after high school. The shotgun scramble

was well supported by local businesses in this, it’s third year of play. Among the other winners on the day, Andy Lloyd was closest to the pin among men and Sandy Foreman among ladies. Kathy Pliwischkies hit the longest drive among women in that competition, while Doug Morrow had the long ball among men Foreman, Libby Crombie, Doug Johnson, and Patsy de Courcy-Ireland were the “most honest” group. -Staff

Heart-related health issues seem to be affecting a larger portion of the population

GALA, from page 1

In detailing the program for the over one hundred attendees Saturday evening, Sprague said that according to numbers crunched by the PEFHT as many as 72 Prince Edward County residents could be eligible for the program at any given time. In fact, statistics offered at the event show Prince Edward County is one of the per capita leaders in the province when it comes to heart issues. Until April, those partaking in such a program were tasked with driving to Kingston three times a week. As such, many that could

utilize the program didn't enroll and only a portion were completing their prescribed treatment.. “Many people in this community didn't go for cardiac rehab after their coronary episode due to financial reasons, due to work related reasons, and what happens when you don't get into a program like this? You end up right back in the hospital bed,” Sprague said. And Sprague would know first hand. When local physicians four years ago identified this program as a top priority and Sprague started looking for approvals and revenue streams, he had no idea his Specializing in Tree Preservation

heart surgery would have him in the first wave of patients using the program. “I am a firm believer in the cardiac rehab program and if you don't believe it works, I'll meet you in the parking lot and we will race and I'll show you it works,” Sprague said to laughs. After the dinner and auction, Sprague said the generosity of PECA and their supporters was key in ramping up the program to allow more county residents to enroll in a vital portion of their recovery. “We would not be getting ready in the fall to deliver that service anywhere close to the level of need we have in the county without this support,” Sprague said. “Everybody involved with the FHT have been blown away by the enthusiasm and generosity of the PECA. It has exceeded expectations.” When the program is up and running at full capacity, due to size and scope, it will not quite meet the full needs of the Prince Edward County community. When asked it could be expanded, Sprague said the PEFHT would look at options where other communities might support the service and it could be offered to a wider range of patients from areas outside the County.

algae can be harmful to animal and human health if ingested and it can also cause skin irritation following contact. Those drawing drinking water directly from the bay are asked to use alternate sources for humans and an-

imals and to not use the water for cooking. Those who normally swim or play in the water are warned to avoid skin contact and to keep pets away from the water. Those fishing are advised not to eat the liver,

kidneys, or internal organs of the fish or shellfish from the affected water. The health unit advised the contamination has not affected municipal drinking water supplies.

Mariners’ memorial Acclaimed soprano to sing at St. Mary Magdalene service keeps traditions alive More than 100 attend to pay tribute to seafaring past Chad Ibbotson

Staff writer

A service that began in honour of the county's heritage has itself become a tradition and part of that heritage. The theme of this year's Mariners' Park Museum church service was the tradition of area fishermen and women and a legacy of service on the water, but just as important as honouring that legacy is continuing the practice of honouring that legacy said Friends of Mariners' Park Museum chair Derek Wolfe. The 88th annual service took place on Aug. 12 at South Bay United Church where it has been held since 1970. Wolfe, who helped organize the event, said the service was about traditions and keeping those traditions alive. With the county being surrounded by water many of its traditions come from those who served on the water both for their country and for their families as fishermen. Wolfe said that history is ingrained in area residents and makes up the fabric of the community. He said close to 100 people came out on Sunday to pay their respects to that history. “It is a chance, one, to keep some traditions alive, two, to highlight the significant marine history of Prince Edward County and, three, to honour those people who have served and who continue to serve on the water,� Wolfe said. The practice started in 1924 at Cherry Valley at the suggestion of Capt. Nelson Palmatier, a sailor for more

than 50 years. Palmatier retired that year and suggested the service be held as an annual event. Throughout the years the tradition grew from first honouring county sailors and fishermen to honouring those lost at sea during the Second World War. Sunday's service followed suit, welcoming representatives from HMCS Cataraqui, the OPP, CFB Trenton, the Canadian Coast Guard Reserve and Wellington and Picton Legions. Though the service has faced challenges in the past — interest in the service seemed to be lost after 1948 before being revived in 1970 — Wolfe said the museum and its heritage are still in jeopardy due to financial cutbacks within the municipality. Wolfe said it's frustrating to see that history get lost. “We're just going to try to keep it alive as long as we can. As corny as it sounds, if you don't know your history you're doomed to repeat it,� he said. He said when coming from a big city there isn't the same sense of community and history as there is in a small rural community. He said losing things like museums and traditions can drastically change the identity of an area. “When you move to a rural community you really begin to realize that the threads that make up the fabric of the community are really, really important,� said Wolfe. “Things like the Women's Institute or the United Church Women, little friends groups at each of the museums and trying their very best to fight that financial battle with the county. If you lose this stuff, it seems the flavour of who we are and what we do and what we have done is gone.�

County resident Elizabeth McDonald has received some strong reviews for singing on concert stages. Critic Urjo Kareda once said the Eastman School of Music and University of Toronto graduate has a “gorgeous gleaming tone and powerful coloratura attack� in a Globe and Mail story. McDonald, a sporano, has performed with the Canadian Opera Company Studio Ensemble and the Santa Fe Opera Apprentice Artist Studio. She performed Mozart operas Idomeneo and Don Giovanni,

in Benjamin Britten’s opera The Turn of the Screw and in Strauss’ Elektra. McDonald has been featured singing pieces by composers such as Beethoven and Orff on the concert stage and has performed recitals at Queen’s University, the Eastman School Faculty Series in Rochester, N.Y., the Toronto Mozart Society, and the Brantford Opera Guild. She has also been regularly featured with the Quinte Symphony. She is currently on the faculty at the University of Toronto Music School. Next Tuesday at 7:30

p.m. she will play a show at St. Mary Magdalene Anglican Church in Picton, where she will be accompanied by promising Belleville pianist Luke Bell. Bell has been playing piano since age 11 and he has studied with Dr. Cynthia Tormann at Queen’s and Prince Edward County Music Festival artistic director Stephane Lemelin at the University of Ottawa. He has also participated in master classes with Canadian pianists Robert Silverman and Janina Fialkowska. Bell has won the Silver Tray Award at the Quinte

Rotary Music FEstival in 2007, 2009, and 2011. He placed third in the Ontario Music Festival’s open piano division in 2009 and second last year. Bell will be performing solo at the music festival this September and he is looking forward to spending a semester studying abroad at the Conservatoire Royal de Mons in Belgium. Tickets for the collaborative show wil be available at the door for the price of $20 for adults or $10 for students.

Lacey Estates winemaker puts extensive training to work through family venture

At the first Opimian dinner we hosted in Kingston I noticed this distinguished, well dressed gentleman sitting off to one side and I went up to introduce myself. I told him that Delores and I had moved to the county just for the wine and asked him if he enjoyed county wine as well as Opimian- sourced wine. Well imagine my surprise when this Opimian member told me he actually owned a win-

tenacious owners waited on their dream for over 20 years before planting the winery’s first vines in 2003. It all started when Charles and his son Kimball went to a grape seminar in 2002 at one of the local wineries. Following the seminar they came home and discussed this new venture with the family and it was full steam ahead from then on. Family members Liz Lacey, Andrew and Cynthia Gray and Lisa Lacey Liscoumb all joined in to make this a true family affair. Today, about 9,000 vines grow over nine acres at Lacey Estates, which officially opened its doors to the public in 2009. They are currently making their mark as an enthusiastic and innovative winemaker in the Prince Edward region using only 100-per-cent estate grown grapes. Kimball, among other things, is the estate’s chief winemaker, and his infinite knowledge surrounding the winery inspires confidence when he says Lacey Estates’ “…handcrafted wines start in the vineyard with a commitment to offering high quality and small batches of terroir-inspired wines." This embodies the essence of Kimball's winemaking philosophy, which is passionately rooted in the heart and soul. He also believes that the Hillier clay loam soil from which the vines grow is yet another reason for Lacey Estates success, as the soil is one of the best types for wine grape growing. Kimball started in the

ery in the county. That was the first of many discussions with Charles Lacey! Lacey Estates Vineyard & Winery began its journey in the 1980s, when Charles and Mollie Lacey bought a select patch of property in what was destined to become an exciting new wine region of Ontario. Located in Hillier, which is north of Lake Ontario on the Prince Edward County Appellation, Lacey Estates’

vineyard and was then introduced to the winemaking aspect of the business when Norm Hardie made him his assistant winemaker. He worked alongside Hardie for four years learning the new and old world styles of Pinot Noir. While working at Norms, Kimball studied through the University of Guelph where he obtained his grape and wine certificate. Kimball then moved to Closson Chase in 2007 where he worked with Debra Paskus as the associate winemaker learning from one of the best chardonnay producers. Currently Kimball is the associate winemaker at Closson Chase and head winemaker at Lacey Estates. Kimball uses French and Hungarian oak barrels for his wines. He notes that he likes the flavours from the Hungarian oak and ages his Pinot Noir in oak for 18 months. In order to be environmentally friendly (green) and in an effort to cut costs, Kimball

stores his wines in Champagne cages. Currently the winery produces 1,000 cases of wine and Kimball would like that number to increase to 3,000 cases over the next few years. Produced at Lacey Estates is Chardonnay, Pinot gris, Gewurtztraminer, Riesling, Baco noir, and Pinot noir. The majority of wine is sold from their tasting room and is also available by phone or e-mail. Their wines can also be found throughout the county in selected restaurants in Bloomfield, Picton, and

Wellington. When you find yourself out around the county make sure you stop by Lacey Estates Vineyard and Winery. There you will enjoy a delightful visit in a tasting room where you will be able to taste some great wines at a tasting counter from a 120year-old farmhouse.

How to improve your home's curb appeal

Men and women who have tried to sell a home are likely familiar with the phrase "curb appeal." Curb appeal is similar to getting ready for a big date, only you're not dressing yourself up to make a strong first impression. Instead, improving curb appeal involves dressing your home up in the hopes it makes a strong first impression on prospective buyers, many of whom will have a strong opinion about the property before they even get out of their cars to have a look around. A home with strong curb appeal can entice buyers who are likely to believe that a home with a wellmaintained exterior is likely to have an equally impressive interior. Homeowners who want the process of selling their home to go smoothly can improve the property's curb appeal in a number of ways, many of which don't necessitate a substantial home improvement budget. • Clean up. The most effective way to improve curb appeal is to clean up the property. Many homeowners are savvy enough to remove toys and other items

from the yard before showing a home, but cleaning up goes beyond removing clutter from the property. Make sure all hedges are trimmed and remove weeds, sticks and other debris from any flower beds. Lay mulch in the flower beds and garden, as mulch prevents weed growth while helping the soil retain moisture, resulting in more attractive gardens to catch a buyer's eye. • Get an "edge" on other sellers. Edging is another easy and effective way to improve curb appeal. Edge driveways, sidewalks and other walkways around the property, removing or trimming anything that is hanging over the driveway or walkways. If the boundary between your driveway and lawn is not distinct, consider installing edging materials such as stone or bricks. The edging can be level with the driveway or elevated, but keep in mind that elevated driveway edging can protect the lawn, preventing kids from riding their bicycles onto the lawn or cars from driving onto it. Adding edging is not a very difficult do-it-

yourself project. • Take to the trees. Many homeowners grow accustomed to overgrown trees around their property and may not notice that low-hanging, unsightly branches are hiding the home from view. Buyers want to see the house, so take to the trees and trim any branches that hang too low or obscure your home. • Clean the gutters. Leaves and sticks hanging from the gutters are a red flag to buyers, who tend to associate clogged gutters with roof damage. Clean the gutters thoroughly before putting your home up for sale and keep them clean throughout the selling process. If your property includes lots of trees, install guards to keep twigs and leaves out of the gutters. • Make the home accessible through the front door. Many homeowners enter their home through a side door or through their garage. If you fall into this category, keep in mind that prospective buyers will be entering through the front door, so make this area accessible. Clear

any clutter, such as overgrown hedges, away from the front door, and consider upgrading the door handle to a more modern feature. In addition, make sure the lock on the front door doesn't stick, forcing the realtor and buyers to immediately struggle before entering the home. You want buyers and their real estate agents to get in and out of the home as smoothly as possible. • Make sure all plants, including flowers, are living. Dehydrated or dead plants and flowers are eyesores, and they will give buyers the impression that you didn't pay much attention to your property. Make Ensuring a home's primary entryway is sure all plants are alive and welcoming and well-groomed is one way thriving and replace those homeowners can improve curb appeal. that aren't. You can replant in much work into the garden. new flowers or plants or just use When selling a home, homepotted plants instead.

Soccer season draws to a close for more than 800 players Mark Bass earns first Scott Wentworth coaching award, while teams compete for titles in Gary Parks tournament Jason Parks

Staff writer

The culmination of three months of soccer came and went this weekend as the Prince Edward County Soccer Association (PECSA) closed the book on another successful season with its annual tournament weekend. And while the focus was on the over 800 children that laced up their cleats and tightened their shin pads, PECSA took time out saturday morning to honour a pair of 'soccer grandads.' Scott Wentworth and Gary Parks were in on the ground floor of the building of PECSA and for their years of service, the pair were formally recognized in a ceremony. Parks saw his efforts honoured through the renaming of the tournament. From here on out, PECSA's final weekend event of the season shall be called the PECSA Gary Parks Annual Soccer Tournament. Wentworth's time with PECSA was lauded with the creation of the Scott Wentworth Excellence in Coaching award. The inaugural edition of the award went to Under 19 coach Mark Bass. With seven divisions and scores of teams representing local businesses and organizations, these are indeed heady days

from when PECSA was in its infancy. Parks can recall those days when PECSA started out and it was hoped between 125 and 250 children would give soccer a try. “We wound up over 450 that year and we grew to over 1,000,” Parks said

with pride. “Even with declining enrollment in the schools and smaller populations of kids, we are still at between 8-900 and it's a great feeling,” he said. As for the honour, He added it was great and not something he expected. “I didn't do it for the ac-

colades, I did it because it was something that needed to get done and that's the attitude the executive had in the early years and has had all the way through,” he said. Wentworth, in both a professional and volunteer role helped foster PECSA

along. When the Johnson Street Fields were being built, Wentworth was front and centre overseeing the project. When asked what he feels when watching children run and kick the soccer ball around on a sun

splashed Saturday morning over a decade after the creation of PECSA, Wentworth beamed. “I feel pride, but I see a thriving aspect of our community. Getting kids outside and active and involved is a great for a healthier lifestyle,” Wentworth said. “The building of self esteem that comes from being involved in team sport. It's always been the focus,” He added those young players a decade or so ago that took up the beautiful game are just now starting to get involved in a coaching or volunteer capacity. “That's going to when PECSA really hits its stride, when the kids have grown up learning the game come back and become the coaches and volunteers and parents and we are just on the leading edge of that happening,” he said. In terms of results, the Timbit division crown was split between Team A (Jeremy King) and Team G (Caitlin Turney). Other tournament champions included: ■ Under 7-Quinte Realtors Association. ■ Under 9-Brian Jewell Roofing ■ Under 11-Castle Building Centre ■ Under 13- DMD Truck & Equipment Services ■ Under 16- Essroc ■ Under 19- Tri-County Lift Truck

Woodward looking to add new faces at every position including in goal

Pirates open with good pace with jobs on the line Chad Ibbotson Staff writer

As the Picton Pirates prospects laced up their skates for the start of the club's annual training camp over the weekend, they undoubtedly did so with the knowledge that there are spots available at every position for this coming season. With several players, including last year's starting goaltender Matt Kaludis, graduating the club is looking to fill those positions while still building on the success of the past few seasons. A total of 55 players took part in sessions on Saturday and Sunday. Each player participated in two scrimmages and had individual meetings with coaching staff following the

final session. Pirates coach and general manager Ryan Woodward said he liked the level of talent displayed over the weekend. “I was really pleased with the talent and work ethic overall, both from the veterans and the new hopefuls trying to make the hockey club,” he said. He said their was an uptempo pace to the scrimmages and it was evident there would be some pretty intense internal competition for spots on the opening night roster. Even so, he said camp is just beginning and players will come and go while being evaluated throughout the next two to three weeks. He said the club is putting a focus on hard work and other intangible assets and, obviously, players

with high-end skill. “We're looking for specific intangibles. Hard work is obviously one of them, but a high skill level, work ethic and hard to play against. We want players that really compete,” he said. “That's what we've told the guys we're looking for and I was impressed with the way they played on Saturday and Sunday and I hope it continues throughout camp.” What isn't clear at the moment is exactly how many spots will need to be filled. Although multiple spots are open at every position, it's still not known how many players will either make the jump to Junior A, move on to post secondary school or will not be returning. “It's hard to say. Junior A camps for the most part

are starting this weekend, so we have quite a few players attending those,” Woodward said, adding that how those players do at those camps will also dictate how many sport the Pirates will have to fill. “One thing is for sure: We need to fill multiple spots at every position.” He said in some postseasons that might be something to worry about, but he said this season there is a crop of really strong players chomping at the bit to make the jump to Junior hockey and, ultimately, get into the open Pirates' sweaters. “We're going to give them every opportunity to make our club and to impress our staff. I think we're off to a good start,” he said.

The Picton Gazette Pirates hopefuls face Napanee tomorrow night in Trenton

Familiar local names such as Nolan Van Vlack and Corey Prince impressed, Woodward said. “The county players played really well. I thought Nolan Van Vlack played with a ton of confidence. You could tell that last year's experience has really helped his play. I thought Corey Prince performed well and Tyler Philip and Jacob Staley from the county also impressed me,” he said. “We're a tough hockey club to make these days. I thought a lot of AAA players played well and I thought the county kids definitely belonged and impressed.” He said the club would take its time before making any decisions on players, saying the hopefuls will lace them up in a couple of upcoming exhibition games this coming weekend. When it comes to goaltending the hole may be a bit harder to fill. Kaludis picked up awards for best goaltender leading the league in all statistical categories last season and was named playoff MVP the previous year when the pirates won the league championship. “You don't just replace a goaltender like Matt overnight. He was our backbone in net for a number of years here and he won a lot of important hockey games and was a big part of our championship team of two seasons ago,” Woodward said. “Right now we're getting a lot of goalies out into our practices and into our

scrimmages and goalies are going to come and go. We need one that really steps up and shows us that he can make our hockey club, be a difference maker and that he can get the job done. We won't stop the search until we find that guy.” Woodward said the club would be willing to use an import card to sign a goaltender. He said phone calls have been coming in from goaltenders across the province looking for an opportunity. “There are some good, strong '96s from Quinte. Both Matt Loveys and Josh Lasher are both competing in Junior A camps as well. They're both planning to come out with us at some point and there are veteran goalies,” he said. “We have to see how things work out at the Junior A level first and then by the time we start the season we'll have a legitimate number one goalie in our net.” The Pirates will be playing two rookie games this weekend. The first will take place Friday at 7:30 p.m. against Napanee and will be followed up on Saturday with a contest against Campbellford also at 7:30. Both games will take place at RCAF Arena in Trenton. The Pirates will have their first home exhibition contest on Aug. 25 when they face the Clarington Eagles. “We're planning to get a lot of players into those games and give them an opportunity to continue throughout training camp,” Woodward said.

Terra Vista takes deciding game in extra innings Whitepine, Danford, Roblin’s also move on to semifinals in men’s fastball JAsON PARKs

Staff writer

If the final game of the first round of the Prince Edward County Fastball League finals is any indication, local fans of the windmill version are in for an exciting three weeks. Pushed to the brink by a game Beatty Seeds club, the two time defending champion Terra Vista Rockies escaped with a series win Tuesday night in dramatic fashion, winning game three of their best-of-three set 1-0 in extra innings. With the score deadlocked at 0-0 in the bottom of the eighth inning and Chris Terpstra standing on second base representing the series winning run, Rockies team captain Darren Marshall ripped a Dan Wallwork one out offering through the drawn-in infield. Terpstra scampered

around third and plated before he could be tagged, punching the the Rockies ticket to the second round. Beatty Seeds had the goahead run at second with two out in the top of the seventh inning but league ace Dale Dowdell fanned Husker batsman Chad Camp to extinguish any upset thoughts the Huskers might have had. Wallwork was outstanding in defeat for Beatty Seeds, striking out 15 batters in seve- and- one-third

Rugosa roses can be maintained to produce large, colourful flowers come fall

Given the gardener’s struggle with drought this summer, it might help to know that small garden miracles do occur. I have heard two stories about apparently dead plants reviving this year. One was a butterfly bush, which after starting to develop leaf buds during the warm spell in March gave up in April. It was not until early July that it put out tentative new stalks. It is now in bloom. The other was a

newly planted astilbe that withered totally during the drought when the gardener was away. She then resumed watering the garden without removing the plant and two weeks later new green stalks appeared. So there is hope that some of the sad looking or even dead looking perennials may revive once sufficient water is restored through natural or artificial means. It would be lovely if

more garden problems were as easily solved. This June, a woman approached the master gardeners at Canadian Tire to discuss her problem with an invasive rose that was in her garden when she arrived. From the discussion, this plant was apparently a rugosa rose (Rosa rugosa). This rose had been taking over her garden and resisted every effort to either remove or at least reduce its invasive

habits. Rugosa roses were originally found in eastern Asia, including Japan. They have been described as small, shrubby sprouting bushes that can form dense thickets. Rugosa roses are one of the hundred or more species roses which have all started as wild roses. A number of rugosa rose hybrids had developed over time in Asia so that the exported plants were and are not necessarily identical. They were imported into Europe in the early 1700s, but it took almost 120 years for these roses to progress from first becoming naturalized to later becoming invasive. The lag time between being imported from Asia and becoming invasive was different depending on a number of factors, including the climate and terrain into which they were introduced. Invasiveness has never been associated with a specific hybrid or hybrids but rather to this particular species rose and all of its hybrids. Currently this rose is also considered to be weedy or invasive in many parts of the United States, including Alaska. These plants continue to be imported and sold for use in gardens as they are rated of low concern in the invasive species lists. They are frequently pictured in sandy areas along the coasts both in Europe and North America. They also grow in similar conditions in Asia, including Siberia and are used to control sand dune erosion. Not surprisingly, they are tolerant to both salt and cold. Rugosa roses have now naturalized in Canada and are found along the coast in northern B.C. as well as throughout Ontario, Quebec and the Atlantic provinces, including Newfoundland. They are vigorous plants that bloom in the spring and early summer and often if deadheaded will produce some blossoms throughout the summer. If dead heading is stopped mid to late summer they will also produce large colourful rose hips in the fall. The flowers are generally

scented and are available in a wide variety of white, red and pink shades. They are resistant to both black spot and rose rust, but are not impervious to these diseases and are affected by the general run of rose problems. Nonetheless their general hardiness leads them to do well even when neglected. Whilst they prefer well drained slightly acid soil, they can tolerate poor soils including clay, light shade and drought. The latter makes them ideal for summers like these. While originally described as being small, some currently grow up to ten feet tall. They are often used as a hedge because of their spreading habits but they are also grown as single specimen plants. They are not recommended for walkways and entrance areas because of their sharp thorns. Pruning these roses can become a problem, as some of these rose plants will spread out in terms of height and width and as well become quite dense. They should be handled with some caution and good gloves because of their sharp thorns. Some gardeners prefer long handled pruners, called loppers, to deal with these plants. There are a number of approaches around pruning these roses. One is to prune them to the ground in early

Bob Clut e M-F 9am - 8pm Sat. 9am - 5pm Closed Sun. for worship

spring after the last frost, and the claim is that this produces the most profuse flowering. A second is that only a third of the canes are taken out each year as the earliest flowering is best obtained on old wood. Clearly both methods could be tried to determine which is preferable in your garden if you choose to grow them. Whatever method is used it is important to remove dead and damaged branches and also thin weak branches. Focus on not allowing the centre of the plant to become dense and impenetrable. When and if the rugosa rose becomes invasive in a home garden, it is by sending out suckers. These can first be seen when a new rose plant begins to appear. Even if you want this new plant it is important to remove the sucker that attaches it to the parent plant and remove any other suckers as they appear. The problem that this can cause if left unchecked was described at the beginning of this article. By the time the woman concerned bought the property, new rose plants would appear if even a small portion of a root sucker was left in her attempt to clear the garden of this plant. Rugosa roses are generally sturdy plants which take harsh winters in their stride. The long blooming periods add colour to the garden as do the rose hips. They make an attractive hedge for this reason. Their pruning difficulties and their tendency to be unpredictably invasive can make them too risky for some gardeners. Their strength in the county is certainly their tolerance to drought and poor soils, including sand and clay. -Sandy Goranson is a member of the Prince Edward County Master Gardeners.

They all came to Wellington Saturday morning wanting to be kings and queens of the curve. But in the end, just two teams reigned supreme at the 6th annual Lions Dragon Boat Festival.

The Peterborough Survivors Abreast Dragon Boat Club was tops in the competitive division, Taking home top prize and the Club Cup while the Wellington Legion and their so-called ringers claimed the Larry Brundage Memorial County Cup as top recreational team in 2012. But by the time the water had settled in the Wellington Channel Saturday afternoon, the Festival was more about having fun than winning a trophy. Festival organizer Janet

Marissen said the event raised close to $3,000 and was enjoyed by all. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a wonderful day all around and it didn't rain on us, so that was nice,â&#x20AC;? Marissen said. The total number of entries were down this over the 2011 edition but a great crowd still showed up to support the event and cheer on the paddlers from both nearby and far away. Marissen added the event supports the local Lions club in supporting several local causes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most of the money

raised by the Wellington Lions Club stays right here in the County,â&#x20AC;? Marissen said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We do have some national and international initiatives like the guide dog program but most of the money we raise goes to charities or events for the betterment of local people.â&#x20AC;? Winners of the Rob MaCallum Spirit Cup (named in honour of the cofounder of the festival) went to the Friends and Family team representing Community Living Prince Edward.

Wellington opens training camp this Saturday Goal scoring, goaltending areas of intrigue Jason Parks

Staff writer

The march to the 2013 Dudley Hewitt Cup in North Bay gets underway this weekend for the Wellington Dukes. The club will rip the lid off its annual late summer training camp with a series of scrimmages in a very abbreviated session when compared to the training camps of previous years. Like any training camp, there are plenty of questions surrounding the hockey club. After a particularly stinging defeat at the hand of the Kingston Voyageurs in the opening round of last season's playoffs, is this years re-

cruiting class good enough to push the Dukes back to the top of the OJHL's Eastern Division? What of the early departure of OJHL leading goal scorer Darcy Murphy? The Marysville native is on his way to Colgate University this season to play NCAA hockey for the Raiders. Part of the answer to those questions might come in the form of Mike Soucier. The 5'10”, 170 lbs centreman had 66 goals and 66 assists last season for Mississauga Rebels Major Midget squad and, according to reports, had a very strong Team Canada East showcase camp last weekend. The Caledon native is one to watch this weekend. The other situation to be abreast of what Wellington Dukes coach and general

Schools offer affordable and accessible space for community use outside school hours—auditoriums, classrooms, gymnasiums, lecture theatres and sports fields.

manager Marty Abrams will do with his third and fourth 16-year-old slots. After signing netminder Hayden Lavinge and forward Luc Brown earlier this month, Abrams still has room for a pair of 1996 birth year players. The smart money says those slots could be taken up by a pair of Belleville Bulls draft picks. Keep close tabs on midround Bulls draft picks (Forwards) Chad Heffernan, Micheal Cramorossa and (Defenceman) Brody Morris as these three could be 16year-old candidates. On defence, Kyle Patt, Kevin Swales and Austin Broadhurst are the returnees and Abrams has signed a few prospects including Michigan native Zach Bishop. But could there still be one more backliner added to shore up the defensive corps? In net, Lavigne is locked in and it looks like Andrew Pearson might have the inside track however, Abrams could still look for another older netminder to solidify the position and ease the 16 year old into Junior A hockey somewhat slower. So many questions. Some of them will start getting answered Saturday.

A former Wellington Duke will be bringing the Stanley Cup to the Quinte area next weekend. Brad Richardson, a Belleville native who played a few games with the local Jr. A club before going on to the OHL and later NHL, is a member of the 2012 Stanley Cup winning Los Angeles Kings and will get his turn with hockey's holy grail next weekend. It's expected Richardson will host a public celebration with the Cup at some point during the 24 hours the forward gets with hockey's ultimate prize. I’m excited to bring the Cup back to Belleville and have my day here with family, friends and the city,” Richardson told local media recently. In addition to having a cup of coffee with the Wellington Dukes when he was 15, Richardson is no stranger to Prince Edward County. As a then-member of the Colorado Avalanche in 2006, Richardson suited up and played pick up hockey at the Prince Edward Community Centre with local players when the NHL was on break for the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin, Italy. -Jason Parks, Staff

Close quarters The Ameliasburgh Street Meet represents a rarity among car shows of its size as it allows the owners of the classic cars to camp right next to their vintage vehicles. The result, organizers say, is a family-friendly atmosphere that encourages younger generations to maintain interest in the classics. (Adam Bramburger/Gazette staff)

Enthusiasts find something special about every car

CARS, from page 3

From that perspective, Gaunt said it’s always fun to go to shows like the Street Meet because there are people who can relate to the work she has put into her vehicles. On the flip side, it can be a very nerve-wracking time showing the vehicles off for the public, though for the most part, Gaunt said it has been a pleasure to receive audiences at the shows. “It's always a sense of pride, you always have a sense of nervousness that someone's going to teach children to look, not touch,” she said. “Most people are really good and they’re always willing to ask questions if they don’t know about something.” Picton’s Troy Irvine agrees. He’s been showing off his classic Chevrolet Bel Air in Ameliasburgh for seven years as well as attending cruise nights across the region. “I love hearing all the different stories,” he said. “You’ll hear from the old guys who had these cars when they were new and the ladies who remember being picked up for dates in them. It’s always fun to hear the stories.” Irvine, too, said he caught the classic car bug when he was young and since, he always wanted to

fix up his own car. Seven years ago that happened and it took major work to get to the point he’s at now. “It wasn't in good shape at all. You could almost walk through the whole car,” he said, adding he rebuilt it right from the frame up. “It took a lot of time.” Irvine painted the car a bright green on the advice of his wife, whom he said told him he got to make all the other decisions, so she was picking the colour. Turns out it wasn’t a bad decision as the colour makes the car highly visible and helped Irvine win some hardware over the years he’s shown it. “It’s paid off, it’s done really well, ‘he said. Irvine has also shared his hobby with his family as his son, brother, and nephew also come for the weekend to share in the excitement. While Irvine’s car draws much attention — particularly while parked in the same row as her own — Gaunt said she can find something exciting in almost every show entry. “I must tell you there is something.We love all of them, they all have something to draw your eyes, some appeal,” she said. Everyone loves their own cars, but I think most people loves everybody else's cars too.”

Gaunt said as an enthusiast, it is a good feeling to see that the history of the automobile is being passed on to new generations and the personality of some of the earlier models isn’t being lost either. “As they've changed cars over the years, I sort of think they've taken the personality away,” she said. “Although I have nothing against the people who like to do up their new Hondas and little imports and make them beautiful and customize them, I tend to like the older things that have personality.” As an added bonus, the not-for-profit auto club rou-

tinely donates money raised from the show to charitable causes. With the big 40th anniversary in the works for 2014, Grimmon said the club is planning some special events, like a performance by the Reasons. He indicated he doesn’t see the annual show changing or growing much more, however, given the constraints of the location at Roblin Lake and the level of interaction between the participants at this point. “We’re trying to keep it family oriented and if we could stay right where we’re at, we’d be happy,” he said.
