It's hard to know what Alva Stephens might have thought to see cars lining both sides of the roadway in his beloved Cherry Valley, to taste pizza or milkshakes, or to listen to rock music. On Saturday, that was very much a picture of the celebration in the community Stephens named about 200 years ago in memory of his hometown in New York. Perhaps, the youth of the village could have asked him as his ghost, portrayed by Brian Conway, roamed the village. He was just one of a number of colourful faces on display during the Cherry Jubilee planned by the Athol Recreation Committee to remember that twist of fate. "The committee wanted to put on a party for the community to celebrate community and also the history of the town," said

organizer Kato Wake. "We dressed up as historical figures from the time to celebrate the 200 years of Cherry Valley and Athol." Wake said there is some discrepancy in the documented history of the area, so it isn't known the exact time when Stephens helped found the village, but they felt confident the celebration fell very close to the bicentennial mark. The event was a nice blend of new and old. Recreation committee members Susan and Glenn Wallis worked to create a scavenger hunt that would take visitors to key houses in the community where places like the bank and the general store once stood. Guests were also encouraged to speak to the characters on display, like Stephens and temperance advocate Letitia Youmans during their quest. "We just had a lot of fun with it," said Wake, who added the day was also passed with some old-fash-

ioned games like a cherryspitting contest and a three-legged race. The Cherry Valley Lions Club also joined in by moving its car show and fun day — which continues the tradition of Athol Days — onto the same weekend as the anniversary celebration. There, there was Olympic-themed fun presented by Come Alive Outside, a variety of vendors and some music by the Brown family. On Main Street, E.Z. Country South performed during the day, while Little Bluff were the featured band for an evening dance at the Athol Town Hall. Wake said she hopes the Cherry Jubilee may become an annual celebration in the future. Another thing she's optimistic about is that through the celebration, one of the village's prime characteristics may be brought back to the forefront in the years to come.

For the second and third time this year, a Picton community has been the target of hate graffiti. Residents of a Richmond Street housing complex awoke last week twice to anti-semitic and white supremacist messages spray painted on a car port wall and a front door. Twice in the span of four days, two homes were gratified, one saying 'Jews Die” while the other had the acronym for the Klu Klux Klan (KKK). These horrifying and senseless attacks come just a few months after the entrance of a residence a few doors away was spray painted with homophobic hate slogans bearing the words “die dyke.” Richmond Street resident Don Markland said the first incident of hate speech showing up on the wall of his car port took place early last week. After the incident was reported to Prince Edward OPP and the wall repainted, the party returned two nights later to deface the property with hate speech again. Markland is somewhat confused at the graffiti that has shown up on his wall as he and his family aren't
Jewish, however, he thinks the person(s) perpetrating the supposed hate crimes have run out of ideas. He believes after the second time vandals hit his car port, they called him in the early morning hours. “I got a call at 4:19 a.m. From a pay phone outside the skatepark,” Markland said. “Whoever it was hung up and I looked outside and there it was again.” Next door, the home of Kathy Taylor was also vandalized. Taylor looks after her grandchildren, who are Black Canadians, and said she is scared after her home has been attacked twice. “It's terrible, not being able to sleep and looking out every night,” she said. While the incidents have been reported to local police, Markland said he and his neighbours believe they have an idea who the Krylon culprit is. “What we need here is to catch the person in the act and have a little street justice,” Markland said. Recently, Ontario has strengthened a regulation under the Victims' Bill of Rights to make it easier for victims of hate crimes to sue offenders for damages such as emotional distress and bodily harm arising from the distress.

entire region and not just one muncipality. He credited organizers at each card stop for their efforts to get the tour running in short order. Next year, to boost the event, he said there will be much more lead time for promotion and organization. â€œThis year, we planned it in five weeks. It was impressive in the time we had,â€? he said. â€œThe biggest gauge of success is theyâ€™re going to do it again next year.â€? Williams said next year, he hopes to see the rendez-vous event grow to include at least double the 11 smaller vessels that joined in the activity. Taylor indicated he was also pleased at the generous support the participants offered for the Ride The Wave campaign for prostate cancer research. â€œOne of seven male boaters will be affected by that disease,â€? he said. â€œWeâ€™re happy to help that cause.â€?

He just bested Brockvilleâ€™s Brian and Janet Lundy, who collected three eights in their 43-foot Nortech craft. All of the winners being relatively local didnâ€™t surprise Taylor, who noted there was about a 50/50 split between local boaters and visitors to the area. â€œNext year, that will probably get to about 80 per cent visitors,â€? he said. â€œItâ€™s going to grow.â€? Taylor said his company also operates a poker run from Kingston to Prescott, which is widely acknowledged to be the biggest in the world with more than 6,000 boats on the water â€” some participating, some watching. He has high hopes that as an established boating area, the Quinte region can rival that event in the near future. â€œThatâ€™s how big we hope Belleville can be,â€? he said. That is music to the ears of Bay of Quinte tourist council chair Ryan Williams. â€œIt was worth about $200,000 this year. Thatâ€™s boaters using transient slips,
visiting our restaurants and accommodations and with that, a lot of money is coming into the communities.â€? Williams said he was really encouraged by the fact the poker run showcases the

The roar returned to the Hayward Long Reach if only for a few moments this past weekend when the Bay of Quinte Poker Run rumbled toward Picton. About 60 boats, including high-performance models capable of traveling in excess of 90 kilometres per hour and smaller family and fishing vessels moved between stations in Belleville, Trenton, Deseronto, and Picton to gain poker cards that could give them a chance at winning some big prizes. The turnout impressed organizer Bill Taylor from Poker Runs America. â€œWe had a wonderful weekend and it was a fabulous show,â€? he said. â€œEveryone â€” and I mean everyone â€” on the Bay of Quinte got together to help make us welcome.â€? With about five months planning, the event still drew crowds with in excess of 150 people on the water and many more on shore at the various locations. Taylor estimated that more than 100 people were in Picton harbour as the boats taxied in to receive their cards, while estimates at Bellevilleâ€™s Meyers Pier suggested more than 2,500 spectators turned out. â€œThere were a lot of people in Picton and Trenton, I couldnâ€™t tell the numbers, and in Belleville you just couldnâ€™t find room,â€? he said. While those spectators turned out to see the horse power behind some of the professional performance boats, Taylor said freedom is the main draw for boaters of all stripes to enter poker runs around the world. â€œItâ€™s the freedom of the waterway, itâ€™s kind of our last frontier today,â€? he said. â€œThereâ€™s no stoplights out in the middle of a lake, so thereâ€™s a tremendous amount of freedom available.â€? Taylor also said that while a poker run may be competitive, it isnâ€™t a race, so that allows for a safe event for all involved. He said, certainly, there are performance elements that attract speedseekers, but the whole event comes down to chance. Teams are trying to collect poker hands to win prizes. â€œAt each stop, each boat is given an envelope with a unique card in it. No one was able to open the envelopes up, or theyâ€™d lose,â€? he said. â€œSpeed has no bearing on the outcome.â€? Bellevilleâ€™s Patrick and Gwen Bray topped the event with a five-card flush. They were sailing in a 42-foot Sonic watercraft. Doug Johnston entered the rendez-vous portion of the event, designed to include a broader range of

and 335 photographs from 116 photographers were submitted. Out of those, 123 photos were chosen for the show from 78 photographers. Barclay said 40 per cent of the entries this year came from photographers who hadn't submitted work to the show before. About 30 per cent of the total entries came from county residents while 70 per cent of entries came from across the rest of eastern Ontario. â€œWhat's interesting this year is â€” and we are the Eastern Ontario Photo Show â€” we clearly are the Eastern Ontario Photo Show now,â€? she said. Barclay said it's exciting to know the show is attracting more and more photographers from across the region. â€œThe message is getting there. This is our third year so we would hope that would be happening, but clearly it is â€” it's great,â€? she said. Three well-known photographers -â€” John de Visser, Phil Norton, and Susan Holland â€” formed a blind jury, looking at the photographs in a dark room on a screen. They did not know anything about the photographers and scored each image on technical and creative merit. The jurors will be returning on Saturday to see the hung show and to select the award winners. â€œFor the first time this year the judging of awards is going to be on the final, printed, framed presentation,â€? said Barclay. â€œIn previous years the judging for awards was done from the digital image â€Ś this year we decided the print quality and framing is really an integral
part of how a work presents itself.â€? Awards will be presented to the first, second, and third place photographs in all of the the adult and student colour and black and white categories, plus the â€œBest In Showâ€? award. Honourable mentions may also be chosen. Barclay said there's no doubt about the quality of the artwork. â€œWe're thrilled, this year again we have an incredible showing. The quality is unbelievable, â€? Barclay said. â€œIt is really brilliant. We did the intake on the weekend and we were just awed by the stuff that was coming in. Every year it gets better â€” it's really is quite remarkable.â€? Barclay said many still don't consider photography an art form. She said one only has to glance at some of the work to realize the opposite is true. â€œIf you came to this show you would see the quality of artistic talent that is out there,â€? she said. â€œThis is just another medium for that expression.â€? She said the technical ability, creativity and range of subject matter makes the show a worthwhile experience for anyone. â€œI would really encourage people to come,â€? she said. The show takes place from Aug. 4 to Aug. 12. Admission is $2 for adults and kids age 12 and under are free. The show will be open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday to Saturday, on Sunday Aug. 5 until 5 p.m. and until 2 p.m. on Sunday Aug. 12.

■ The famous Trans-Atlantic German Dornier flying boat Gronland-Wal was spotted in the Pt. Traverse area as it flew from Ottawa to Detroit. The large gray flying boat cross the Atlantic Ocean three-and-a-half times. ■ A book of some 68,000 Canadians who gave their lives in the First World War was to be placed within the casket of the altar in the Memorial Chamber in Ottawa. The names were to be hand-written on fine calfskin vellum and bound in purple Morocco leather. The book was expected to contain some 900 pages. ■ A young man tending a farm in Sophiasburgh in the absence of its owners was saved by a collie. The man noticed 10 head of cattle entered a swamp pasture. One was a bull, which chased him across the pasture. The man called his dog, who was able to drive the bull away from him.
50 years ago — 1962
■ Ern Ward, a former Picton reeve and County warden died suddenly at age 70. Ward had a tailoring and men’s wear business in Picton for more than 40 years and he also was also active in the Picton United Church and the Rotary, Kiwanis, and Odd Fellows organizations locally. ■ The Prince Edward Chamber of Commerce resolved that it would like to see not only a recreation committee for Picton, but also a full-time recreation director to coordinate athletic and social programming for all ages in the town. ■ Work began on an extension to the docks at the Prince Edward Yacht Club that would greatly introduce docking facilities in Picton. The project, which received the support of the federal government would reduce the number of crafts which had to anchor in the middle of the Picton harbour due to the shortage of docking berths in the town.
30 years ago — 1982
■ About 2,000 worth of antiques were stolen from the North Marysburgh museum. The haul included four clocks, pieces of china, butter paddles, and pottery bottles. Entry was gained through a back window after the thief tried unsuccessfully to gain access through the basement. The items were all carefully catalogued and could be easily identified. ■ With the market for cement drying up, Lake Ontario Cement stated that it may have to close its doors in August and lay off production employees. The company’s president, J.D. Fowler, said activity in Picton would be limited to grinding. He called the market drop the most significant in the company’s 25 years. ■ The Wellington Legion Manor was a step closer to being reality after a confidential survey was set to 4,500 seniors in the mail, with more than 650 responding in favour of the apartment complex. Project co-ordinator Don Sutton said many stated they’d move in immediately.
10 years ago — 2002
■ Three people responsible for the theft of credit cards from cars parked at Sandbanks Provincial Park in July pled guilty to 99 related offences in Picton court. The suspects were arrested while trying to use the credit cards at Picton’s Home Hardware July 18 ■ Wellington’s Waterfront Festival drew big crowds on the beach and downtown in its first year of operations.

Some random thoughts about longevity
Today is my father ‘s birthday. If he were still alive, he would have turned 105 today. As it was, he lived to the age of 96, passing away one night, not many days after receiving a clean bill of health. As I wrote in my book about the farm, he just wore out from years of milking cows, picking stones off fields, stumbling over clumps of clay, and worrying about the price of fertilizer and seed. The only thing to have failed him in his final days was his mind. On previous visits that final year, he was still worried about his cows and if I was making out okay with the farm work. He had forgotten that we had all retired from farming some 28 years earlier, but I carried on with every conversation as though we were still there rounding up the cows for their nightly milking, combining grain and baling hay. That he was happy in his final days was paramount. I would like to think that his final thoughts as he passed away that night was not about the nursing home in which he spent his final days, but about the farm that he loved so dearly. I would also like to think that his longevity, as well as my mother s, can be attributed to their love of the outdoors and building up an immunity to things that bring many of us to our knees today, like allergies which were unheard of, drinking unpasteurized milk, and drinking water that was not treated with reverse osmosis, carbon and ultraviolet radiation. We never got the flu. Hadn t heard of it, although my father often spoke about the grippe , the forerunner, I Another Prince Edward County resident has fallen victim to the notorious grandparent scam. The Prince Edward OPP detachment reported this week that a 73-year-old Picton woman was duped out of
guess, of today s flu. We seldom got colds. Anything worse than a cold was merely a bad cold. Farming, despite its setbacks like this summer’s drought, is a good life and I am convinced that farmers have a much healthier lifestyle than some of us pampered folks today. Spending much of my time outdoors, leading interpretive hikes and studying nature, has allowed me to extend that healthy lifestyle, and I would like to think that those who register for my events are the better for it. Certainly, there is no stopping some of them.A few of them are well into their 70s and 80s and have no issues at all with 12 km hikes. For them, it is just another day of hiking, somewhere different. Lifestyle factors do have a profound impact on health during late adulthood. We have all heard the commercials, exercise strengthens the heart and reduces the risk of heart disease. However, no one in our group to my knowledge lifts heavy weights or run marathons.
Simply, they adopt a regular routine of walking. It serves to strengthen bones, improves coordination and it has been shown that people who walk regularly have fewer accidents and injuries. It is pretty sad when you see someone get in their car to deliver a bag of garbage to the curb side! And those who read my column regularly already know that the bane of my life are the able bodied who park in handicapped zones and sprint into the grocery store. And don t even get me started on the absurdity of drive-throughs. Walking promotes blood circulation, oxygenates the brain and improves our memory (I may have some work to do there!). It is also an effective prevention of cancer. Once we stop moving and grooving, we start to decline. We came into this world with a purpose and to be an active doer, not just a viewer. An active lifestyle is the key to our longevity, to our mental and emotional health, to a sound body, and to a more joyful and peaceful spirit. We become energized, awakened and mentally uplifted. It rejuvenates and revitalizes , motivates and empowers. It s a kick start from the sluggishness of early morning and connects us with our inner rhythms. American author and poet, Henry David Thoreau, once said, “Walking is a blessing for the whole day. Just the delight of movement is enough to refresh us for the entire day, and that connection with nature makes it complete.” On days when I have to leave early for a guided tour somewhere, it is refreshing to see men and women of all ages out walking, some of
them quite purposefully, along rural roads, sidewalks in town, campgrounds, trails, everywhere. It is exercise without expensive memberships, and spirituality as close as our backdoor, free for the taking. A time for mind purging and welcome inspiration. One does not have to walk far to realize the benefits. I walk five kilometres every day in the winter, fewer kilometres in the busy season, since walking during the operating season is already part of how I make a living. It s a matter of divesting oneself from the mindset that early mornings are somehow offensive and that it is, in some perverse manner, impossible to get underway until we have had that third cup of coffee, or that it s too hot or too cold, or too windy or too wet. As someone from Napanee said to me one time, There is no such thing as bad weather — just inappropriate clothes for the weather. My father routinely left his tractor in the back forty, and walked home across several fields for lunch (we called it dinner). At the time I thought it was rather silly since the tractor could have brought him home more easily. Perhaps he was subconsciously aware that this peculiar habit was beneficial to his health. I am looking forward to seeing him again one day so I can thank him, but I am also hoping that it won t be for at least another 30 years.
$1,900 from a man who told her he was in jail in Quebec and needed bail money. A second man also came on the phone claiming to be her “grandson’s” lawyer. After sending the money through a Western Union
telegram, the woman became suspicious when she was contacted the next day and asked for more money. She then reported the incidents to police. A nearly identical scam cost a 79-year-old Picton woman $1,200 June 26.
The OPP is reminding residents to hang up on suspicious callers and report possible fraud to the Canadian AntiFraud Centre at 1-888-495-8501 or at www.antifraudcentre.ca.

EVERY two years, people from around the world turn to the Olympic Games as a venue where they can see bright, young athletes — no matter their nationality or political stripes — show the world their promise as they strive to be stronger, faster, or higher than anyone dared tread before. Certainly, that’s an idealistic view of an athletic competition and a movement which has fallen under scrutiny in recent years for judging scandals, for failing to keep athletes clean, and for essentially cashing in on the exploits of those who dare to train for their dreams while entertaining the rest of us. This year, however, the notion that these superb athletes are, in fact, people came crashing home in a hurry as two Olympians were found to have posted racist material on their Twitter feeds and expelled from the competition for their stance. Though international competition raises the spectre of patriotism to an extreme level, the spirit of the Olympic movement is one that demands sportsmanship and a sense of the world coming together as one. By stripping the right of those athletes to compete in sports they’ve dedicated their lives to, the International Olympic Committee (I.O.C.) effectively is sending a message that it expects its athletes to set an example for all those watching around the globe. It is saying that there’s no place for that kind of backward thinking. If that action is enough to make even one person think twice when opening his or her mouth, than it was worth the effort and the scorn from some who would argue that type of censorship falls outside the realm of the purveyors of an athletic competition. The fact those postings were even brought into the light of the Olympics shows that racism and indeed most other forms of hatred can rear their head anywhere and likely do when people turn a blind eye to it and continue on with their lives. Unfortunately, someone here in Picton doesn’t appear to be getting the message as twice this year, the members of a Richmond Street housing complex have had to wake up to horrible things scrawled on the walls of their neighbour hood and had to deal with the unrest of wondering who harbours such ill will toward them and what they might do about it. At least in the Olympic incident, there was someone to point the finger at. In this case, it’s a faceless threat who prefers to work in the cloak of night. Perhaps it is time for local law enforcement and community leaders to take inspiration from the standard being set by the I.O.C. and take action to ensure that the whomever is responsible for such hatred is not only caught, but publicly reprimanded for their troubles to show the community someone is serious about ensuring people have a reasonable sense of security that no one in that neighbourhood or in Prince Edward County will wake up in fear again. The Olympic movement has long been striving to find and attain ideals. Safety and security for all is one that should not be considered out of reach.

Libraries are keeping the fun in fundraising efforts this summer
A yard sale full of great buys, a chance to win a personal tour of a popular gardening author’s garden, an evening with great mystery authors and a Better Books Book Sale are all in the works to help fundraise for the County of Prince Edward Public Library & Archives. The high-end thrift store sale that the library held upstairs at Books & Company in June raised over $900 and the items left at the end of the week were all desirable, so a decision was made to set them aside and hold another sale. Beginning Aug. 14 and on until the items are sold, the sale will be part of the book sale currently underway in the Armoury Mall on Main Street in Picton. If you have items you would like to donate to the indoor yard sale, they can be dropped off at the Picton branch. Another fundraiser the library is pleased to present is an offshoot of the recent popular talk presented at the Regent Theatre by gardening expert and author Marjorie Harris. Tickets are now available for a draw to win a unique opportunity of a personalized tour of Harris’s garden in Toronto. Names of five lucky ticket holders will be draw before Aug. 31. The $20 tickets are available at all branches of the library. On Aug. 16, those who like mysteries can enjoy an evening with four great authors as they discuss the art of mystery writing. Join Ian
inside the library CHRISTINE RENAUD
Hamilton, Barbara Fradkin, Janet Kellough and Vicki Delany as they share their tricks of the trade. Tickets are only $5 and available at Books & Company, the library and at the door. Rounding out the fundraisers for the month of August, The Friends of the Picton branch are holding their popular Better Book Sale on Aug. 25 from 10 a.m to 2 p.m. Good quality book donations are welcome and can be dropped off at the Picton branch. The library is looking for fundraising events and opportunities and welcomes partnerships within the community. Please contact the library if you have any fundraising ideas. For a full list of special events and activities at the library, visit the library’s online calendar at www.peclibrary.org.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
Saying goodbye to a special place in Picton
Every day it seems the halls become quieter and quieter. Names have disappeared from doors – some forever – some to be placed on new doors, but only temporarily. Upstairs, an entire wing has been closed. Picture boxes outside the doors are emptied of their contents, never to be filled again. I search for my mother, who is not in her room as it is now part of the deserted hallway. Stepping through the closed door into the “new” wing of Picton Manor, I hear voices coming from the dining room. Faces which have grown familiar in the few months my mother has been upstairs, roam the hall or sit, holding tightly to their purses, in the chairs that line the well trodden path between the lounge and the eating area. I find Mom in a gloriously
air-conditioned room, snoozing in her comfy chair, which really has become her prison. She cannot walk; she cannot see, and more and more, she cannot vocalize her wants and needs. I give her a kiss on the top of her head and head for the dining room to pick up her meal tray. As always, the wonderful people who care for the residents of Picton Manor, the “Home with the Heart”, greet me with a smile and a pleasant word. There are fewer and fewer residents waiting to eat, but each one is still treated with kindness and respect. I take the tray laden with the pureed food my mom can only eat now, and the cup of coffee that is always waiting for my father or I as we take turns coming to give my mom her dinner every night. It has become a ritual over the past few
months. We look forward to it and I think mom does too, although she cannot express her thoughts to us. I believe the “girls” appreciate it too. Dinner finished, I return the tray to the dining room and have a chat with one of the caregivers. I ask her if she is planning on staying until the end. She says most of the employees want to stay. They know the residents best – their little foibles, their likes and dislikes, how they communicate their needs — and do not want them to be left to be cared for by strangers, who do not understand them and would not recognize their “special” needs the way Chris and Charlene and Elsie and Jennifer, and all the other wonderful caretakers at Picton Manor do. I appreciate this, as my mother has been a resident of the home for six years.
Over the past year, Mom has become a shadow of herself, no longer bursting into song; not even able to speak most times. Her shouts have become her way of communicating. A stranger would not have known my mother. These marvelous people do, and accept her for who she was and who she has become. Picton Manor will be closing soon; the place my mother was born and, I had assumed, the place she would end her time with us. That is not to be. However, “The Home with the Heart” will always be remembered by my family, and, I am sure, by hundreds of other families, as the place their loved ones called home, were cared for, and found peace. My family and I thank you for everything.
Can you imagine Main Street in Picton without the Majestic Regent Theatre lit up in the evening? I am writing this letter because I feel that as a community we are very fortunate to have this beautiful historical theatre in downtown Picton as part of Prince Edward County’s heritage. It is that time of the year again when The Regent starts its annual membership drive. To give you some background: the theatre is a yearround community entertainment centre serving a wide range of audiences and showcasing live theatre; live by satellite entertainment from around the world; first run, classics and international films, and the free Whattams’s monthly movie for families. Also presented is a extensive range of live music including blues, country and jazz. This historical building that will celebrate it’s 100th anniversary in a few years
has recently been extensively renovated to provide increased comfort and seating capacity for 446 patrons, brand new washrooms, and meets the latest accessibility, fire and safety standards. This past year with the support of the community and the help of a Trillium grant, the Regent was able to fully fund the purchase of state of the art digital equipment that now enhances the viewing experience and increases the Theatre’s access to first run movies. Here are a few facts about the Regent that I was not aware of and you also may not know. The Regent Theatre is a not-for-profit independent community enterprise and a registered charitable organization. Over 35,000 people visit the Regent annually making this historic theatre a major contributor to the county’s overall economy and generating $2.4 million in eco-
nomic benefits. Unfortunately, as a result of previous financial difficulties, the Regent board (all volunteers) has inherited a large mortgage which costs about $36,000 per year to service. In all, it costs more than $1,000 per day to operate the theatre. In order to provide a wide range of entertainment for every taste while keeping ticket prices affordable, the Regent relies on its base of dedicated volunteers. Presently there are 125 volunteers contributing approximately 14,000 hours annually in every area: from box-office, to costumes, to fundraising. In all, even at the level of a minimum hourly wage, this effort amounts to a contribution of over $210,000 in value. The Regent also relies on the direct contributions and the community support of all its members. One third of the Regent’s budget is met through fundraising with
membership being a key component. I was surprised to learn that despite recent campaigns, the Regent has only 450 members. This represents less than two per cent of the population of the county (25,000). This wonderful historical theatre could not survive without the support of its membership base, so I would ask you to please think very seriously about purchasing a membership when the Regent Theatre starts its membership drive in August. There are various levels available starting at $50. As a registered charity the Regent is able to provide a tax receipt for most of your contribution. In the meantime, if you wish to see and learn more about this amazing community institution, theatre tours can be arranged by calling 613-476-8416 Ext 26.

Water conservation measures stepped up in Quinte region
Though there has been some rain in the region recently, it hasn’t been enough to allay concerns of a water shortage. On Monday, Quinte Conservation declared a Level 2 low water condition for its entire area, including the Prince Edward County and Moira, Salmon, and Napanee river watersheds. “Rainfall is well below normal for this time of year and all of our river systems are also well below normal summer flows,” said Quinte Conservation’s water resources engineer Bryon Keene. The declaration is a step
farther than the Level 1 condition Quinte declared last month. According to Keene, it means that all non-essential water usage should be suspended until further notice by people using both private wells and municipal water systems. “We are asking all Quinte residents and business to reduce water usage by 20 per cent,” Keene added. He also noted those on wells could also see a sharp decline in their water supply if the supply is not replenished soon. -Staff

Rib cook-off helps Legion maintenance adam BramBurger Staff writer
With a wide range of savoury and sweet, seven entrants did their best to impress the judges in the Picton Legion’s annual ribfest Saturday afternoon. “The entries were really tasty. It was a tough job deciding, but we did it with gusto,” said one of those judges, Sandy Latchford. Latchford and her fellow judge Larry Cox of the Wine Barrel worked through the entries before deciding that Wellington’s Greg Bowerman would take the title as the top ribber in this year’s event. Robyn Heather and Betty Hall, both of Picton, rounded out the top three entries in the cook-off. Meanwhile, a steady crowd piled into tents on the front lawn at Branch 78 to enjoy a cold drink, taste the house ribs and cook-off entries, and enjoy the sounds of the Quinte Air Cadets band and the everpopular Reasons. “We’ve had an excellent day with an exceptional crowd considering the competition elsewhere in the county,” said organizer Gil Charlebois, a member of the branch executive. Charlebois said the second annual celebration was a fundraiser for the branch’s weighs and means committee and the proceeds would be used for general maintenance of the heritage facility. Previous social events helped pay for the replacement of the Legion’s roof. He added the generous support of local businesses helped with cook-off and silent auction prizes. In the coming months, the Legion also has two more social events planned, its annual chili cook-off and an Oktoberfest party. Charlebois said dedicated volunteers make all of the fundraising events possible.

Community Foundation grant helps Hospice develop in-home care kit Project helps family caregivers with challenges of end-of-life care Chad Ibbotson
A County Community Foundation grant has allowed Hospice Prince Edward to develop an In-Home Comfort Resource Kit, the contents of which were shaped by personal experience. Hospice executive director Nancy Parks said the package gives family and friends of those with terminal illnesses a chance to ask questions in a comfortable environment while building the confidence to provide personal care. “As far as I know there isn't a kit like this anywhere,” Parks said. The kit brings those caregivers together in the patient's home and provides an experienced hospice volunteer to explain the items in the kit, which include body cream, a resource book on caregiving and a communication book for caregivers. “These conversations are important because they allow — especially the client — the chance to have input as to how the care and support is delivered while gaining an understanding of what to expect,” said Parks. “The focus of the Comfort Resource Kit is the creation of a personalized plan for your loved one's comfort.”
Parks said she experienced the need for such a kit while supporting her friend Johan DeRoche. Parks said at the time of DeRoche's diagnosis, family and friends rallied to support her and husband Terry DeRoche. She said she regularly visited Johan throughout that time, but it became evident she needed more information. “I had lots of questions, but I didn't want to be a bother to anyone. I didn't want to bother Terry with those questions and I didn't know who else to turn to about them,” she said. “Fast forward nine months to when Johan had passed away and I came to hospice. From that time I realized that what I needed at that time wasn't available.” She said throughout her time with hospice she had the idea in the back of her mind for some sort of program or project to deal with the issue. The kit also includes a room-to-room monitor, wool socks, a comfort quilt donated by the Prince Edward Quilters' Guild, relaxing music, an electronic photo frame and a planner to keep track of medication times and other important dates. “Even though this kit has practical items for the family,

it also is about conversations,” Parks said. “My vision is that one of our more experienced hospice volunteers would go into the home in a situation like Johan's and Terry's and have a family meeting and bring all the family and friends together and have a conversation about how they would support someone in their end of life journey.” She said the most important part of that is the patient would actually be involved in the decisions. She said this is key because in that situation the patients need to know they have at least some control over their life. Terry said along Johan's journey the family was constantly being bombarded

with decisions to be made. He said dealing with it alone would be unbearable. “Fortunately for us a lot of family and friends were there, but they didn't have all the answers either. That's where Hospice Prince Edward stepped in,” he said. “Their professional team provided answers to all our questions and assisted in finding the right medical equipment and resources that exist, but most people don't know about or how to access them.” He said the comfort kit, along with the guidance of a hospice volunteer, would make an immeasurable difference to families in their time of need. He reiterated that, in that situation, many
families don't know who to turn to. “I was at a loss in my situation,” he said. He said when people hear they have a terminal illness, many shut out the world. He said the program would help bring them back. He said such a thing happened when Johan was paid a visit by hospice volunteer Jocelyn Matthewman. “What she did was open the book on everything that was available,” he said. He said the kit wasn't available then, but he said in it he sees many things that he was fortunate enough to find at that time, but many people may not. County Community Foundation executive direc-

tor Bridget Stevenson said the fact that the kit is based on personal experience is a key reason the foundation thought it would be a legitimate program to fund when hospice approached them about a grant. “Kudos to Hospice Prince Edward for putting this together,” she said. “This is a wonderful thing.” She said when the County Community Foundation first saw the grant application they knew it was exactly the type of thing they would be interested in funding. “One of our missions is to use our resources through fundraising, through working with donors, to meet community needs. This was obviously a significant need in the community,” she said. She said the community foundation works to bring together donors who want to accomplish something significant in the county and bring them together with the needs of organizations. “If we have an idea of what's going on in the community and what the needs are we can make significant change and we can have a long-lasting impact,” she said. “The in-home care kit is a great example of those two things coming together.” Stevenson said she hoped similar programs would be started in other communities as well. Parks said a lot of items in the kit have either been donated or sourced locally. She said initially there will be 20 kits available, but said the program will be ongoing through Hospice.

Lake Street land sale on hold as councillors fear potential complications Site usage, land value among concerns cited at July 24 meeting Chad Ibbotson
Two entrepreneurs will have to wait a little longer to see if they will be able to purchase a section of surplus land from the municipality they say is needed to secure financing for a new seafood restaurant on Lake Street. Lisa and Ghislain Goudreau recently approached the municipality about purchasing a 50 foot by 150 foot triangular parcel of municipally owned property next to their property at 4 Lake Street adjacent to Picton LCBO. The sale was recommended to be approved by staff, as they saw it as an economic driver, and a price of $800 plus legal and survey fees was set based on a property value of $4.30 per square metre with a total area of 187 metres. The sale was approved at a June 28 committee-ofthe-whole meeting, but council decided to take a more cautious approach and, at their July 24 meeting, voted to have the issue referred back to staff for a further report at a future committee-of-the-whole meeting. Several councillors were concerned that selling the piece of property to a private owner could lead to future complications as the land has long served as overflow parking for the LCBO. Others argued the sale price was below fair market value. Councillor Alec Lunn was among those concerned about future problems at the site and initiated the referral motion. Lunn said he has already been approached by several neighbouring residents who were leery of the land being sold and said the price was also a point of contention. Councillor Janice Maynard agreed. “It should come back and we should have a further look at it,” she said. “There's a lot of different things that little chunk of property could possibly be used for.” Councillor Jamie Forrester said significant problems could develop if the land is sold. “I'm not really sure we should be selling off county property at such a small amount. This is a very valuable corner and it ties right into the Millennium Trail,” he said at last week's meeting. “There are all sorts of economic opportunities we could use it

for in the long term.” Forrester said the municipality wouldn't be able to guarantee the owners would move ahead with their plans once the property is sold and as a result could further complicate the issue. “If we lose that corner we're going to have all sorts of congestion there,” he said. “If there was a fence put up there or grass we could have major traffic concerns there.” Picton councillor Bev Campbell argued to the
contrary. She said the Goudreaus have already stated their intention to remediate the parcel as a parking area and would include painted lines. “When the report was brought to us to begin with there was reference to the impact of this move on parking for the LCBO,” she said. “As I recall it was expected to be a positive impact on their parking, some kind of reconfiguration.” The Goudreaus spoke to council to reiterate that they are willing to work
with all neighbours and stakeholders and have no intention of disrupting things with the purchase of the property. Lisa Goudreau said she intends to open a retail fresh and frozen seafood restaurant and has plans for future development which would see the business open as a year-round business with 8–10 local employees. She said currently the property they own does have frontage to Lake Street and access to the
property is through a municipally-owned deeded 15-foot right of way access across the north eastern corner of the municipally owned Millennium Trail and bordered on the other side by the parking lot of the LCBO. She said in order to secure funding for

the development of the commercial property 50 feet of frontage is required. With purchase of the land the owners would be able to, according to a report from the June 28 committee meeting, “visually delineate the driveway into her business and to appropriately assign parking within her property.” “This would also assist in the configuration of parking for the Millennium Trail staging area and assist in the structure the traffic /parking pattern in the empty lot,” the report says. “What we want to try to do is obviously we want to create parking there and just have it a little more organized than what it is now,” Lisa said. “Currently traffic parks on our property, so I don't think that changes anything because that's still our property. If we have that frontage we can designate parking and make things a lot more structured there.” A date was not set for the report to come back to committee of the whole.

Hundreds of cyclists supporting the 14th annual Friends for Life Bike Rally rolled through Prince Edward County on Monday in support of the Toronto People With Aids Foundation. The yearly event involved close to 300 cyclists and 100 crew who made their way from Port Hope to Adolphustown on Monday, the second day of a six-day, 600km ride from Toronto to Montreal to raise funds and awareness for people living with HIV/AIDS. The Friends for Life Bike Rally has raised more than $1 million so far for Toronto People With AIDS Foundation (PWA). The foundation is Canada's largest direct service organization for people living with the condition. Event co-chair Tim Ledger said so far things have been going well for the event, which will conclude on Saturday. “It's actually been a fantastic year. We've had great weather and no incidents or injuries on the way, so it's all good,” he said. “When we left on Sunday we had reached $1.163 million that we've raised this year.” He said the event is vital to PWA. “The rally raises approximately 36 per cent of PWA's annual budget,” he said. “This is their signature fundraising event.”
RIdIng foR a Cause Close to 300 cyclists made their way into Prince Edward County and through Picton on Monday as they took part in the Friends for Life Bike Rally to raise funds and awareness for those living with HIV/AIDS (Chad Ibbotson/Gazette staff)
Ledger said awareness is easily created by the colourful riders. “We raise awareness as we go. This morning we rode 60 kilometres, most of us in red dresses, so that certainly gets the attention of motorists and people want to know what's going on,” he said. “There are lots of people who have all that information and pass it on as we go.” The riders left Toronto on Sunday, and set out from Port Hope on Monday heading east through Northumberland County and into Prince Edward. The riders stopped for lunch at Henderson's Bed & Breakfast in Consecon before heading past Schroedter's Marketplace in Bloomfield and into
downtown Picton. The riders then made their way to Glenora and boarded the ferry before riding into Adolphustown where they spent the night. The event raises funds for PWA which provides essential services to many people in Toronto who are HIV positive. Those living with the condition are living longer, but a release from the foundation says they can have greater challenges. “PWA’s core services like food programs, treatment resources and financial assistance for men, transmen, transwomen, women and children living with HIV/AIDS in our community are more important than ever,” the release says.
Scotiabank is, and for the past four years has been, the presenting sponsor for the Friends For Life Bike Rally. The event has contributed more than $10 million to the cause in the past 13 years. The event is a grassroots, volunteer-driven fundraiser that began in 1999 when two friends on the board of directors at PWA challenged one another to cycle from Toronto to Montreal to support the foundation. Ledger said the event is much different now than it was then. “It's certainly a different machine than it was,” he said. “In the first year they had 36 riders and crew. This year we're about 285 riders and 115 crew.”

drowning prevention Prince Edward OPP Const. Kim Guthrie, Prince Edward Corrections Advisory
Board chair Bill Edwards and executive director Kerry Cole, and public health nurse Cindy Kirkpatrick show off signage and t-shirts which promote the use of personal floatation devices on boats and at docks. (Adam Bramburger/Gazette staff)
PFD promotions mark drowning awareness week
For a fifth straight summer, members of the OPP’s marine unit are hoping to catch boaters in the act. To be clear, the officers would be pleased not to pass out tickets for offences like drinking and boating or improper equipment. Instead, they’re hoping to find those boaters who are staying safe by wearing their personal floatation devices (PFDs) in Prince Edward County waters. Thanks to a partnership with the Hastings and Prince Edward Counties Health Unit and the Prince Edward Corrections Advisory Board, the OPP will again be handing out 62 tshirts with the provocative slogan “I got caught by the OPP... wearing my PFD.” Kim Guthrie, the community service officer with the Prince Edward detachment, started the program with an eye on raising awareness that PFDs have the potential to save lives. Guthrie said it is often difficult for people who are in the water to put on their PFDs, expending energy they might need to stay afloat. She indicated that according to the National Lifesaving Society, this year there have been 48 drowning deaths in Ontario and 10 were boating related.
around boats may result in injury and death if a person finds themselves suddenly in the water,” she said. Cindy Kirkpatrick, a public health nurse, is part of a new team working on promoting water safety throughout the two counties. She said her team is attempting to promote many of the same messages the health unit has been working with the OPP to spread
over the past five years. According to Kirkpatrick, the basic message includes wearing a PFD, learning CPR, taking swimming lessons, keeping children near water within arm’s reach, not mixing alcohol with boating, and observing children while swimming. Kirkpatrick also stressed the importance of fencing enclosures around swimming pools.
Wearing PFDs could have prevent ed that. Though the campaign is being launched this week to mark national drowning awareness week, Guthrie says she encourages officers to be selective with the t-shirts to ensure the campaign lasts throughout the boating season. The t-shirts screening was provided by Prince Edward Embroidery. Also this year, the OPP has teamed up with the health unit to provide additional reminders to boaters about the importance of wearing PFDs even along the shoreline while launching their vessels. Last year, they had “life jacket zone” painted on the ground at all the public boat launches in the county. This year, they went farther with the health unit funding the installation of yellow signage with the same message on it. “It’s a visual reminder. People see that and think, ‘Well, maybe I should wear it,’” said Guthrie, who noted the subject hits close to home with her. She indicated she had a family member who stepped off the dock and into the water missing the boat. Guthrie also indicated there have likely been incidents in the past where boats have rolled down the dock, creating a potentially hazardous situation where drowning could occur. “At any time, unexpected incidents such as tripping, slipping or unintentional contact while

Sugarbush’s garagistes handcraft wines sourced from their own vineyard

Sippin’ in the county JOE HACHE
the mid-1780s (Rob is eighth generation county) They had a dream of owning a winery that came to them during a tour of the Okanagan Valley in 1997. It remained just a dream until the summer of 2000 when they came to visit Rob's parents here in the county. By Christmas of that year, they had purchased a 48-acre property dotted with sugar maple trees in the county and were ready to become vintners. Sugarbush Vineyards was picked for their vineyard name, as the back 6-7 acres of their 48 acre property contains sugar maples. While they don’t sell through the LCBO, their Pinots and Chardonnays are available in restaurants in Toronto, Ottawa and nearby Kingston. Sally says that many people visit their store in the county based solely on the recommenda-

tions of friends. That's the power of word of mouth advertising; if you have a good product word will get out. They strive to produce small quantities of handcrafted premium-quality wines sourced entirely from their vineyard. They want to be able to manage and perform all aspects of their operation and, at the same time, have an enjoyable lifestyle. In order to do this, they decided to stay small. That's why their wines are only available at their retail store and at a number of eastern Ontario restaurants (although they can be ordered online and will be delivered free of charge in Toronto and Ot-
tawa). In the next few years they will reach their peak production of 1,500 cases per year. Their vineyard is herbicide free and all of their weed control is performed manually. They keep mowed grass down their alleys, and use a grape hoe and hand hoes to remove weeds between each vine in the row. This is more expensive and time consuming but they believe that this is much better for the long term health of their farm. Although they would like to be totally organic, they have found that it is a very difficult proposition. They only use organic insecticides (kaolin clay for

leaf hoppers; pheromone mate disrupting ties for grape berry moths), but in order to maintain a healthy vineyard in this climate they use a combination of organic and inorganic fungicides during the growing season. They have 10 acres (four hectares) of vines. They planted 8.5 acres (Cabernet Franc, Gamay, Pinot noir, Chardonnay, Riesling, and Gewürztraminer) during 2002 and 2003 and added 1.5 acres (Gewürztraminer and Viognier) in 2012. The Pecks opened their winery retail store in September 2007 after their first harvest in the fall of 2006 and are planning a fiveyear celebration this com-
ing September. A visit to the county to sip some wine should definitely include a visit to these modern day county "garagistes". And summer time is not the only time to visit and taste some great wine as they invite people to stop by in the spring when the sap is flowing from their acres of maples to make maple s'mores at their fire pit. And be sure to ask what wine pairs with that. -Joe Hache maintains an independent guide to local wineries at www.princeedwardcountywineries.com. Join him in the Gazette for a tour of county wineries.

There's an old saying that goes something like "our home is our castle" but if you take a drive down Wilson Road in the county you'll come across a couple that says "our home is our winery"! Rob and Sally Peck are what’s known as "garagistes", meaning they produce small batches of premium wine out of their garage. Wikipedia (I don't make this stuff up!) refers to garagistes as a group of innovative winemakers in the Bordeaux region, producing vins de garage, or "garage wine". When you drive up to the Peck's house you see no evidence of a winery (other than the sign at the bottom of their driveway) but if you catch them with one of their three garage doors open you'll see that they live up to the definition as it is filled with all sorts of winemaking equipment. The county is home to many tasting rooms; located in old barns and in separate buildings away from the winemaking facilities. At Sugarbush you will find that if you walk around to the back of the house there is an outdoor patio that leads into a large tasting room, also in their house. Sally was born in Chester, England and immigrated to Montreal with her parents just before the 1976 summer Olympics. Rob was born and raised in the county. He is a United Empire Loyalist descendant, and his family has lived in the County since

RE/26 f THURSDAY, AUGUST 2, 2012
THE PICTON GAZETTE
Preparing your home for sale If you’ve decided to sell your home, it’s time to start thinking like a buyer. Ask yourself what you can do to improve your home and property to make it as appealing as possible to potential buyers. Giving your home ‘curb appeal’ will improve its saleability which is something your Realtor can help you with. The Ontario Real Estate Association (OREA) and your local Realtor offer the following tips and low cost suggestions to attract potential buyers and to sell
your home quickly, for the best possible price.
First impressions count
The outside of the home speaks volumes about what the inside may look like. Often potential buyers won’t get past the front door if the outside of a home looks run down or shabby. Your Realtor may suggest some simple quick fixes like applying a fresh coat of paint to the garage door, planting flowers or shrubs and cleaning the windows. Quick fixes are worth the minimal investment as they not only in-
crease the saleability of your home, but could potentially add value equal to or more than what you spent on them. With that in mind, your Realtor will likely caution you to stick to minor improvements. Bigger, more expensive renovations or repairs are usually reflected in a home’s price, so if you’ve done any major updating to your home, you’ll want to give careful consideration to all of your investments. What’s most important is that your home looks wellcared for and maintained. Take a close look around the
outside of your home and assess what needs to be done. Things like fixing window screens, replacing the odd loose roof shingle and repairing door hinges are relatively simple and advice is available at your local home improvement centre.
Mind the inside
Take a tour of the inside of your home to see what needs to be cleaned, cleared out, or repaired. Rooms will appear larger and more inviting when you remove bulky or unused furniture and rearrange the remaining pieces to make the best use of
JimWait Sales Rep.

space. You want potential buyers to walk through the house and visualize the space as their own. To help them along, your Realtor will suggest that you “depersonalize” your home as much as possible.
A checklist of everything you need to do to prepare your home for sale can be found in the Ontario Real Estate Association’s booklet, How to Sell your Home. For a free copy, contact OREA at 1-800-563-HOME or check with your local Realtor.

LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 There's more than meets the eye to a particular situation, but you seem biased, Libra. Consider all sides of the situation before you decide which side you're on. SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22 It's finally time for you to relax, Scorpio. After weeks of running here and there, you now have the opportunity to simply kick up your feet and enjoy yourself. SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 What you may view as some innocent comments could be viewed much differently from someone else, Sagittarius. It's better to censor yourself when you can. CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20 There is no easy way around the work you have to get done, Capricorn, but there are plenty of helpers who may be able to pitch in and lend a hand. AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 Stop looking to others for solutions to your problems, Aquarius. The only one who is qualified to handle them is you and possibly a spouse or romantic partner. PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20 Pisces, this week you feel like you're walking around on a cloud. But you know well you have everything handled.

ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 Marked improvement is on your horizon, Aries. As new possibilities seem to rise without cause or reason, you see the silver lining in the cloud. TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 Taurus, it's difficult when you feel like you're being pulled in too many directions. This may require sitting down and making a priority list to get started. GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 Don't try to mask your emotions this week, Gemini. It is OK if others see the truth about how you feel. Let others explore the honesty in your expression and actions. CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 Cancer, if you haven't done so already, plan a trip to somewhere for a respite from the grind. Try to book something that is outside of your comfort zone. LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 Leo, your energy is infectious and many people notice how well you keep going when others will simply tire out. You'll need that energy for work this week, too. VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 Virgo, a big opportunity comes your way that you shouldn't pass up. Resist the urge to point out all of the negatives and focus only on the positives for the time being.

Time capsule to be buried within Cherry Valley JUBILEE, from page 1
"We brought in some cherry trees from Cherryvale at a really good price and the idea is to bring the cherries back to Cherry Valley," she said. "Maybe in five years' time it will be a beautiful place to drive through in cherry blossom time." Adding to the celebration, the committee has also been working on time capsule that will be buried to show just what the village looked like in 2012. Member Carol King has spearheaded efforts to photograph each home owner on their property to include in the capsule. As of Saturday's celebrations, the date for burial was yet to be determined. The recreation committee is also working on its plans for the rest of the year with a number of dances in the works and games nights planned for the first and third Fridays of each month this fall. Details are available online at atholreccentre.com and the committee is seeking input from the public about what it would like to see planned in the future. "We are really trying to build community," Wake said.

Dukes expect few tweaks in revision
Price adds silver to medal haul
Coach wishes soccer stars had chance to shine for their own community
OJHL schedule recalled as Markham suspended
Ameliasburgh coxswain helps men’s eight back to podium in London
County players help Quinte West to top spot in Under-9 rep action
On Wednesday, the Ontario Junior Hockey League announced it was suspending the Markham Waxers franchise for the 2012-2013 season due to “circumstances that have arisen in the past 48 hours and the failure to comply with various financial and operational related obligations.” As such, the OJHL has rescinded the original 20122013 schedule. Wellington Dukes coach and general manager Marty Abrams said his club's portion of the schedule would likely be tweaked somewhat, although he was hoping the changes would not be drastic. Wellington was slated to play the Waxers five times this season. Following the decision to suspend the Waxers organization, the OJHL announced a realignment of the North-East Conference which would see five teams per division. The move sees the Pickering Panthers shift to the North Division. The local entry was slated to play a balanced 55game schedule weighted by conference play only, not divisional, meaning Wellington plays just as many games against the North Division as it does against the East Division. The Dukes are still expected to kick off the season on Thurs, Sept. 13 with a visit to Kingston to play the Voyageurs. The next night, Wellington was slated to open the Essroc Arena with a tilt against the OJHL finalist Whitby Fury. Whitby is also the guest in Wellington's last regular season home game on Friday, Feb. 22 2013. In total, Wellington will likely play 27 home games including 17 Friday night games starting at 7:30 p.m. and 10 Sunday night affairs kicking off at 7 p.m.
There is a silver lining in the waters near Windsor, England for Brian Price. Price, who was born in Belleville but spent most of his formative years in Ameliasburgh and attended Kente Public School, added to his Olympic medal count early Wednesday morning. The team's coxswain was aboard the Men's Eight rowing craft as it charged hard through the final 500 m of the 2,000 m race to nip the entry from Great Britain and capture the silver medal. The silver medal now goes with the gold medal Price won in Beijing, China in 2008. In interviews after the race, Price said the silver medal was very special to him, considering Canada was the front runner in 2008 and completed the job that was expected of them in Beijing. Wednesday's silver finish was “developed” over the past two years, according to Price. A survivor of leukemia that stunted his physical growth as a youth, the 5'4”
Proud olymPian Brian Price, shown here during the Picton stop of the 2010 Vancouver Olympic torch relay, won a silver medal Wednesday in men’s eight rowing near Windsor, U.K.. (Jason Parks/Gazette file photo)
Price has served as the coxswain in Canada's men's eight entry in the last three summer games. The juggernaut German
entry won the 2012 gold medal and holds an undefeated streak in major competitions dating back to 2009.

Luc Bourgoin, Kacey Cocklin and Justin Thompson all play for the Trentonbased squad who are currently fighting it out with the Cataraqui Clippers for first place in the Southeast Ontario Soccer Association's Under- 9 division. In addition to a sparkling regular season which currently stands at 8-2, the squad won the prestigious Ambassador Cup tournament last month with Cocklin booting home the championship winner against the Nepean Hotspurs in a thrilling 1-0 victory. Wolverines coach Gerry Bourgoin said all three county natives have made significant contributions to the club's success this season. Luc Bourgoin, who attends Kente Public School, has 15 goals so far this season which ranks him third in the
circuit. Thompson of Carrying Place is playing the back line and is a very strong, aggressive defender with a good head for the game. Meanwhile, Cocklin, suiting up at striker, has chipped in with some timely scoring and is known for winning ball battles in the offensive zone which lead to scores. “All three of them are real assets to the team,” he said. Bourgoin said by his count, at least five rep players (two in Belleville) in the U-9 ranks are living in Prince Edward County and are playing on travelling teams outside the municipality. The Prince Edward County Soccer Association has had some forays into the rep leagues in the past but currently do not field any rep clubs. Bourgoin pointed to Bancroft and Portland as smaller communities that have been able to consistently field rep soccer clubs. “It's kind of sad,” he said. “I've got all my coaching and accreditation and I wish I could stay in my home community. The players are there to field a competitive team.”
Dukes in dire need of billets for 2012-2013 Numbers could affect talent level JasonParks
The Wellington Dukes might soon be facing some hard questions and it doesn't have anything to do with evaluating talent. The local Junior A hockey club is in a bind as it appears it will be lacking billets for the upcoming season. Billets, some times known as land parents, house players that have relocated to Prince Edward County for the season. Dukes coach and general manager Marty Abrams is scrambling this summer, trying to find willing couples and families that will welcome players into their homes this season. “We are going to have to release some players just because we don't have any billet homes,” Abrams said. “That's unfortunate, but we can't make these kids sleep in

their cars.” For the first time in his tenure with Wellington, Abrams predicts his lineup might very well be based on whether or not a player has a room to sleep in at night as opposed to how many pucks he can put in the net. “There will be veterans that get cut not necessarily because of their ability but because we need the space for younger guys. For the first time, these billet issues are impacting the team and dictating who we keep and that's sad news for lots of kids have worked hard, year round, to make this hockey team,” he added. Other clubs in the OJHL struggle with the billet issue as well, but it has never reared its head in Wellington until recently. And while the small town, community feel of the village is attractive to potential players and their parents, the reality is there is only a small pool of potentially available homes. “In our situation, you
only have so many billets with such a small community and billeting is one three major issues facing the franchise. In return for housing players from late August until the end of the Dukes playoff season, Billets receive season's tickets and a monthly stipend. “You are asking to open your home to someone you don't know and you can't really put a price tag on that,” Abrams said. “But it's usually a life long friendship you develop with the player and his family and it's usually a very unique and special experience for everyone involved.” The Dukes bench boss added the availability of billets will signal whether or not the franchise will remain in the village. “It's probably going to be deciding and determining factor in the operation of the franchise. It's one of the issues as to whether or not there continues to be a Junior A team in Wellington,” he said

and sense of purpose. "This solid metal mass that once so intrinsically and powerfully participated in designated duty was suddenly a twisted misshapen hunk of

will seek it out. "It's definitely open to the public, we want as many people to see it as possible." Taylor said to him, the wheel really speaks to the dangers Canadian military personnel must contend with every time they go to work. Death, like in the case of the unnamed soldiers in this tragedy, can be an imminent threat at all times. "They just went out to do their jobs. It's hard to believe what they have to go through and there's no way we can know what they went through," he said. "I think of their families back in Canada, having to know they're not coming back — or they're coming back through Trenton and the Highway of Heroes, obviously not the way they wanted to have them come back. It sure makes you think." Coupled with the wheel on its journey are a Canadian flag, photos of the damaged vehicle, and comment books for those who have seen the wheel and been moved by it to write about it. Several visitors to the Legion shared their comments. Among them was George Larner, who wrote: "Very sentimental. No one can imagine what the men and the vehicles encounter. "Well done to bring it back to us Canadians so we all realize what they are up against and how lucky we are. We need to appreciate our soldiers." Added Dorothy Holdaway: "Until you see something like this display, you just can't fathom it. I will remember."
In an inconspicuous wooden display case just inside the door at the Picton Legion Saturday sat a 300-pound pile of mangled, discoloured scrap metal seemingly unworthy of display. Branch 78, however, just happened to be such a place where this wheel would garner the utmost reverence and that's why president Ted Taylor was insistent on its presence. The display is the entire wheel unit off a Canadian armoured vehicle that was deployed near Kandahar, Afghanistan. On that morning, a group of Canadian engineers were set to complete their daily duties of building roads when it hit an improvised explosive device buried below. The soldiers were killed and the vehicle destroyed. On the other side of the
world, the employees at a Mississauga transportation company solemnly marked Remembrance Day in 2010 as one employee suggested all his colleagues could look up a soldier who had died as a result of war in the previous 10 years. The employees took up the project and decided in light of what they learned about the soldiers as people, with families and pasts in Canada, they would build a memorial in their honour. Discussions began with the Department of National Defence and Canada's Directorate of History and Heritage. Eventually, the employee at Wheels Group learned the story of this illfated mission and received photographs of the wrecked vehicle. He focused on the wheel and received permission to have his company obtain it to create the memorial. Text accompanying the exhibit describes his reaction
eran engineer led efforts to make the wheel more mobile for travel and fit it with the wooden display. The symbol of Canada's war effort in Afghanistan would be sent across the country with funding from the transportation industry, moving from Halifax to Vancouver and back, where it will become part of a permanent war memorial. The Hastings and Prince Edward Regiment was one of the organizations securing the wheel for public display, but officials there were concerned they couldn't offer enough visibility. "We just got this on Thursday," Taylor said. "The regiment had it on display and they didn't think it would be seen by enough people. They asked the Legions in our zone if we would display it." Taylor knew that with the Legion's ribfest occurring last weekend, it would be an ideal time for Picton to have the memorial. It came from the Wellington branch last week, and is earmarked for a stay in Consecon beginning today. Taylor said he hopes many

Council won’t delegate minor duties to staff Representatives vote 9-6 against Dewing’s suggested changes to improve efficiency Chad Ibbotson
In the midst of fears about a perceived lack of transparency, County council defeated a motion last Tuesday which would have delegated several minor municipal functions to staff. Councillors voted 9–6 in a recorded vote against delegating the functions with several councillors sharing concerns about transparency, grant applications, and public perception. The issue stems from a report from County chief administrative officer Merlin Dewing at a June 14 committee-of-the-whole meeting. The report says the Municipal Act allows council to delegate minor powers for several items like the temporary closure of a highway and issuing and imposing conditions on a license. Dewing told council on Tuesday that the intent of the
motion was to improve efficiency by making decisions on minor items which, in the past, have gone to council and required written reports. The delegations would have included the ability to sign grant applications when both the project and budget for the project are already approved by council. Under the current system staff are required to come back to council to have a bylaw passed saying the application can be signed. “The intent behind this one is very minor in nature because council has already approved the project,” Dewing said. “You've already approved the budget for the municipal contribution, this is just doing the paperwork.” Dewing said staff wouldn't have had any powers to unilaterally apply for grants without council approval. “This is not council giving up any power or authority,”
he said. Other delegations included approving uncontested minor variances, approval and execution of encroachment agreements and the ability to approve uncontested stand alone consents. Also included are current and historical practices that are performed by staff, but haven't officially been delegated by bylaw, such as signing letters of approval for special occasion permits and grant relief or reduction for fees for service. However, many — like councillor Janice Maynard — said they weren't comfortable delegating responsibilities. Maynard said with the municipality encouraging transparency and public consultation in council decisions it would be best to go with the current system. “This is the public's chance to come to council, this is the public's chance for input,
whether they be minor in nature or not,” she said. Councillor Alec Lunn also said he wasn't comfortable delegating authority. “I'm a little leery about delegating this kind of authority without a clear picture of where (the corporate structure) is going,” he said. The report says the current approval process for minor items can take from six to 12 weeks based on their complexity, but a delegated approval process could reduce that to about two to four weeks. Jim Dunlop was among those who though the efficiency measures were a good idea. He said council should explore any ways it can to make the County more efficient for taxpayers. “All these things are at council discretion. Even if staff does something we can go back and look at it,” he said.

Familiar county faces Putman, Fraser pass away at age 75
Prince Edward County lost a pair of familiar faces this week with the passing of Gerry Putman and Dwain “Ikey” Fraser. Both men were 75. Putman was a longtime art teacher at Prince Edward Collegiate Institute and, by the time he retired in the early 1990s, had taught thousands of secondary school students the proper way to hold a paint brush and the difference between light and shadow. More recently, Putman
participated in the 2010 Olympic torch relay as it made its way through Prince Edward County. Fraser was an Athol Township institution, operating Fraser's Garage in Cherry Valley. A common sight at most township parades and celebrations, Ikey and members of the Fraser clan would often assemble on an old, rundown car that Fraser assembled himself out of spare parts. In later years, even as his health started to fail, Fraser would
still ride shotgun on the jalopy, much to the delight of parade watchers. The funeral services of both men have been en-
trusted to Whattam Funeral Home. -Jason Parks, Staff

Help identifying and dealing with sawfly slugs on rose bushes
Gardens do not look quite as desperate after the rain, last week. Still the erratic weather pattern which began with unusual warmth in March no doubt will continue. I lost two very new shrubs, which started to produce leaf buds in March due to
the warm weather, but later these buds shriveled up and died during the cold weather that followed and no new ones reappeared. This unusual weather has lead to reports of unexpected pests and diseases in greater numbers.
4R]]e`URjW`cR7C664@?DF=E2E:@?s RWRcSVcT`^ 3V]]VgZ]]V
As is generally the pattern, the healthy plants largely continue on as usual and the frailer plants struggle and often die. This was the case with one rose bush, despite the healthy half dozen nearby. In early May this rose, unlike the rest, had lost significant numbers of major and minor stems that had apparently died during the winter. It otherwise appeared to be leafing out normally. By mid June it was clear that something was gradually skeletonizing the leaves. None of the other rose bushes had more than a few holes in an occasional leaf. Close observation at various times of the day finally revealed the culprits. The larvae eating the leaves were a light green almost the colour of the leaves themselves and

measured about a quarter of an inch (just over half a centimeter long). The head appeared slightly lighter, almost yellow in colour. They were found on the top of the leaves. While these were most likely sawfly larvae, it was important to identify which ones they were and what further damage might be expected. As well, given the time of year and the blossoms that abounded even on this very sad looking bush, it was important to not use any treatments that might threaten pollinators or other beneficial insects that were also present at that time. It was apparent after careful researching that the most likely culprit was the common, or European, rose slug sawfly. The time of year was right, along with the colour, the size, and the fact that they were feeding on the top of the leaf as opposed to underneath. While sawflies are never desirable this was not one of the nastier species as there is only one cycle a year and that is in the spring giving the plant an opportunity to recover during the summer. This could also have been the bristly rose slug sawfly. They are both in a similar colour range and according to one expert indistinguishable to the naked eye. While these latter are said to prefer working from the underside of the leaves, both species of slugs have been observed chewing away on either side of the leaf. These slugs are nastier in that they return once again during the late summer and fall. Neither of these so called slugs is slimy and both appear to look more like a caterpillar than a slug. The common rose
ASK A MASTER GARDENER SANDY GORANSON
slug sawfly does more damage in the early spring when a large proportion of the leaves were found skeletonized. The bristly rose slug sawfly is more likely to be responsible for significant damage to the plant leaves in the late summer and fall. The manner chosen to dispose of them was a twice daily inspection and the choice of disposal was either to pinch them or shake them into soapy water in a container held underneath the leaf. Within a week there were no further reappearances. Four weeks later the shrub was leafing out well and continuing to flower. Nonetheless biweekly inspections continue to confirm the original diagnosis and also to ensure that nothing else appears to be attacking this further weakened plant. There are other sawfly larvae which attack roses by boring into the cane to feed, and are identified by the blackening of the canes that are damaged by the boring. Some, like the curled rose slug, eat the entire leaf surface and then bore into the pith of rose at the pruning cut to feed. While the same
colour as the first two slugs mentioned, they are invariably curled and the leaves are transparent rather than skeletonized. If they have been effective in significantly destroying the pruning graft, the plant will need to be removed and not composted. In fact no part of the plants that host sawflies, their eggs and larvae, should be composted. Finally there is the large rose sawfly slug which is yellowish black along its back with black bristles. They also eat leaves from May to October and may be destroyed in a similar manner. Inspection of the leaves for eggs should be carried out weekly during the summer and if located these should be washed off. Given a serious invasion of even the healthy roses in the garden may require using pesticides which will impact the beneficial insects including already threatened pollinators. Ask your nursery for help in choosing the least lethal. Using them at dusk when the pollinators have retired for the night is recommended. All of these larvae winter over in the ground around the plants so dichotomous earth can be dusted over the area in the fall and early spring. Do be careful to buy the dichotomous earth used for agriculture and not for pool filters.

Sharing some found poetic reflections on old barns and old people
A friend sent me this poem the other day. I searched Google to find the author and couldnâ€™t come up with the name of the writer. I decided to share the words with you. If youâ€™re a computer user you can search YouTube for this and find these words with photos of old barns and music playing in the background. Itâ€™s a compelling video and you should have a look at it if you can. The words alone are worth reading and I hope that you enjoy the sentiment in this poem. A stranger came by the other day with an offer that set me to thinking. He wanted to buy the old barn that sits out by the highway. I told him right off that

he was crazy. He was a city type...you could tell by his clothes, his car, his hands, and the way
he talked. He said he was driving by and saw that beautiful barn sitting out in the tall grass and wanted to know if it was for sale. Sure, it was a handsome building in its day. But then, there's been a lot of winters pass with the snow and ice and howling wind. The summer sun's beat down on that old barn till all the paint's gone and the wood has turned a silver gray. Now the old building leans a good deal looking kind of tired, yet that fellow called it beautiful. That set me to thinking. I walked out to the field and just stood there gazing at that old barn. The stranger said he planned to use the lumberto
line the walls of his den in a new country home he's building down the road. He said you couldn't get paint that beautiful,that only years of standing in the weather, bearing the storms and scorching sun can produce beautiful barn wood. It came to me then. We're a lot like that...you and I. Only it's on the inside that the beauty grows with us. Sure we turn silver gray, too...and lean a bit more than we did when we were young and full of sap. As the years pass, the hard weather of our lives, the dry spells and the stormy seasons beautify our souls. And to think, how often folks holler because they want life easy! Well, they took the old
barn down today ...hauled it away to beautify a rich man's house. And I reckon someday you and I'll be hauled off to that Great Ranch in the Sky. And I suspect we'll be more beautiful because of the seasons we've been through here. And just maybe then we'll add a bit of beauty to that Great Ranch in the Sky. So, hope there's peace with you today and just trust that you're exactly where you're meant to be. I'm sincerely grateful and thankful for my wonderful family and friends who care about me even though I show signs of weathering!
