Queen Ellie nestled into her throne as her loyal subjects workedthemselves into a quick frenzy. The battle was soon to begin. With each introduction, the applause ratcheted up a bit louder. Sir Aldric Angelheart, a Teutonic knight enters the battlefield first, swinging his two swords to the crowd’s delight. His opponent, Ragnar the Wanderer, enters bearing a large shield and a single blade. He earns his own share of applause. For a brief moment, the two warriors bow to offer respect to the audience and then to their queen before hell breaks loose. The warriors swing their blades madly, the crowd hanging on every movement and ever thwack of metal against plate armour and chain metal. They spar back and forth for a time, then Lord Zon — the tournament master, or referee in today’s terms — calls for the fighting to halt. The bout has been scored and the good knight Aldric has won the day. Ragnar has been left to humble himself before his young queen to look for forgiveness. This was high noon at Hillier’s Jack Taylor Park and if the excitement was any indication, more than 500 people liked the new twist that added olde style to the park day tradition. In true medieval fashion, the annual summer party received a revamp as jesters told jokes and weaved magic, guests led demonstrations of historic dances, and people of all ages were able to examine traditional costumes and weaponry. Hillier recreation committee member Cynthia Riordon explains that she saw members from the Blades of Glory Realm making a presentation at the Wellington library branch a few years back and their presentation immediately made her think of possibilities for the Hillier event. “I thought it was educational, entertaining, and nobody had been doing it regularly,” she said. “This

was a turn key group that could come in and lead a family friendly event.” As a supply teacher, Riordon said she noticed that medieval times are part of the school curriculum that young people always seem fascinated with, so she approached the Blades of Glory team to make a proposal for the festival this year. They envisioned an atmosphere where there were a number of different stages and presentations that would take place twice in the day so that visitors could take part in all of the ancient crafts as well as get their beef on a bun from the firefighters or have the fun of plunging someone into the dunk tank. Riordon said she felt more people came out to the village for the celebration because of the theme this year and added she felt even the adults found ways to get into the spirit and use their imaginations. “A lot of people dressed up this year. We didn’t do the costume contest because we could never get people to dress up in the past, but even the adults were in costume. They seemed to enjoy the medieval theme too.”

As the Prince Edward County Field Naturalists struggle to cover legal costs incurred in their appeal of the Ostrander Point Wind Energy Park, they may soon get help in the way of a substantial grant from the municipality. Committee of the whole voted on Thursday to recommend that council award the Prince Edward County Field Naturalists (PECFN) a $20,000-grant that will be taken from the municipality's tax rate stabilization reserve with the caveat that a legal opinion finds there is no liability issue for the municipality. The issue is slated to appear before council on Aug. 27. The group incurred approximately $125,000 in legal costs during the 40day hearing and have raised over $84,000 to date. PECFN president Myrna Wood appeared before the committee Thursday morning to give an update on the organization following their successful appeal to the Environment Review Tribunal (ERT) of the Renewable Energy Approval (REA) for the proposed nine-turbine 22.5 megawatt wind project. Wood said she was very happy the committee decided to award the grant. “(The committee) is recognizing how important the tribunal process was; that they have made a decision and people should be ready to accept it,” she said. Wood said the tribunal made a very careful, thorough decision. The tribunal decision has already been challenged by project proponent Gilead Power and the Ministry of Environment (MOE). Such challenges can only be made with respect to errors in the application of the law. “The tribunal made a very careful decision in detail and I don't think it can be overturned,” Wood said.

Committee decides timing isn’t right for N.E.W. plan for council restructuring Many wish to hear feedback from citizens’ assembly first Chad Ibbotson

Staff writer

While a few councillors seemed interested by the idea, resident Gary Mooney's N.E.W. Plan for council restructuring didn't generate any motions at last week's committee-of-thewhole meeting as several councillors noted it would be inappropriate to discuss the idea further at this time. Mooney presented his restructuring plan to councillors Thursday morning, saying it would not conflict with the work of the citi-

zens' assembly as its purpose is to make a recommendation on council size. The N.E.W. Plan consists of three electoral wards — north, east, and west. Mooney suggested the plan would preserve the 10 historic wards while improving councillor representation and allowing for flexibility in the size of council. “This proposal is not about downsizing council, it is neutral on the number of councillors going forward. It does not compete with the citizens' assembly because it accommodates anywhere

from as many as 15 councillors down to as few as six,” Mooney said. “… Really I feel it's complementary to (the citizens' assembly's) work. What the proposal is about is improving councillors representation.” The three electoral wards would overlay the current 10 historic wards with the north electoral ward covering Ameliasburgh and Sophiasburgh. East would include Picton, North Marysburgh, South Marysburgh, and Athol, while west would cover Hallowell, Bloomfield, Wellington, and Hillier. The plan says each electoral ward would represent roughly the same number of voters at 9,108, 9,070, and 9,272 respectively. However, many councillors thought the plan was premature with the citizens' assembly still working on a recommendation. Councillor Brian Marisett was

among them. “I respect that any citizen can come before us and make a deputation, but I feel

this is inappropriate at this point in time,” said Marisett. “… There shouldn't be any more discussion on this today, it's inappropriate.” Councillor Jamie Forrester said he hoped the discussion wouldn't “derail” the citizens' assembly.

“I don't really like the timing of this right now,” he said. Councillor Bev Campbell concurred with both Marisett and Forrester. “It's quite inappropriate for us to be discussing anything to do with this matter at this time. It can be seen as interference,” she said. “We don't know what the recommendation will look like, we don't know what our next steps would be.” Councillor Keith MacDonald disagreed. MacDonald said he didn't consider the plan inappropriate, saying it will give people something to consider while the citizens' assembly works on a recommendation. “It doesn't bother me, we have a consulting firm in here, council will make the final decision,” he said. “When people are talking at a coffee shop, a grain elevator, or something to that effect, this report will certainly give the people of the County of Prince Edward something to talk about.”

On behalf of Wes, Kelly, Ella, Liam and their families  we would like to extend an enormous thank you to the community of Prince Edward County. The spirit, strength and generosity of one community coming together to fight Ella's cancer battle with us is simply overwhelming. We are truly blessed. We would like to publicly thank many of our friends and people in the community, who have generously given their time and ultimately their hearts to help in the battle of one young girl. There are far to many people who deserve our thanks and gratitude.

We would like to say thanks recently for the Hayloft benefit, the Brighton Speedway team was a huge lift for us early in our battle. The scrap book and beautiful birthday video made to help celebrate a special girls 5th birthday will never be forgotten. The generous donations of gifts and presents to make Ella feel like a Queen for the day succeeded. The bake sale and fund raiser organized by close friends showed a wide spread of support for Ella. The sale of the "Ella's Cancer Kicking Posse" bracelets turned a small yellow bracelet into a symbol of hope for a community. For all the children who organized lemonade stands, gave up allowances and at such a young age gained empathy for one of their own it is a life lesson that touches us all and we should be so proud of each one of them. The funds raised have been allocated into a trust fund entirely to Ella's well being.

We want people to know that everyone who has thought about our battle, and those who have personally contributed their time and resources to the "Team Ella" campaign have truly touched us. This is not an easy battle but the load is made lighter knowing that the entire community is behind our little girl. We know we are not alone facing this disease. There are many that have come before us and many who will follow behind us. We live in a wonderful community that we are proud to call home. For that we cannot thank you enough.

Lost art of falconry a source of food and status throughout the ages Hillier audiences learn about hunting method AdAm BrAmBurger

Staff writer

Metaphors about the value of a bird in the hand likely could have been more greatly appreciated by societies that practiced the craft of falconry. Chris Ketola of the Ontario Specialized Resource Centre was at the Hillier Medieval Festival on Saturday. He explained that in some societies birds of prey were considered both status symbols and necessary tools to help peasants feed their families. He indicated that falconry, the sport or art of training birds of prey to hunt animals dates back over 5,000 years and originated in the Middle East near the area of present-day Iraq. The craft then spread east to Asia and finally reached Europe around 400 A.D. when explorers from Europe started to travel in that direction. Ketola said that numerous famous figures throughout history including Genghis Khan and Henry the Eighth were noted for their involvement in the activity. Traditionally, hawks, falcons, and eagles were considered best suited for the hunt. At the time, owls weren’t thought to be bright and people believed buzzards to be too sluggish. “Around 500 to 1600 A.D. falconry reached its peak of

popularity,� said Ketola. “Everyone at some point got to train a bird or be around one being trained. Each family had a bird and royal families often had hundreds of them at one time.� Ketola said much like people today would buy a Ferrari or other sports car today to have fun and show off, the nobility of those days trained birds for the very same reason. In fact, he said, there were some

species of birds that only kings and high-ranking royals were allowed to have including golden eagles and Jer falcons. “One of the best ways to show off your wealth was to get the biggest class bird you could afford to train and have fun.� Peasants who tried to touch birds out of their class could be jailed, they could lose their hands, or even be executed as an example.

work. “They’re not dogs. They are selfish naturally,� he said. “If they’re not hungry, they don’t want to hunt or train or do anything. They’re quite lazy really.� While it isn’t as regularly practiced today, Ketola said falconry does still have some practical uses in

Most of them had birds like forest hawks and in their case, it wasn’t just showing off to have a bird, it was a way of life. “Peasants want to put meat on the table,� he said.�If you want to trap, you might get one rabbit in a week. Hunting with a bow, you’re not going to hit rabbit at 100 yards. If you have a well-trained bird, in one day you may be able to kill two rabbits, two squirrels, and two smaller birds.� Ketola said birds are typically trained young — most these days are born in captivity — and their handlers would train them by feeding them on top of a glove and building trust. Once that trust was built, the handlers would teach the birds to hunt by chasing a lure — in the air for falcons, on the grounds for hawks. or eagles. Once the animal went for a fresh kill, the handler would offer a piece of meat to the bird and hide the fresh kill under his body or under a mat. The bird would remain hungry to make another kill, while still trusting its handler. Ketola said that is the only way to make falconry

today’s society and several people still actively train birds. Besides hunting, people now use falconry to educate about past societies, and to control pest birds. Many airports and public area employ handlers and their birds to keep the population of unwanted birds in check.

Campbell's motion included a lengthy preamble in which she points to PECFN's substantial and growing legal costs and council's stance that no renewable energy projects be constructed in an important bird area. Mayor Peter Mertens spoke in support of the motion. He said when PECFN asked for financial assistance months ago he didn't support it, but has since changed his mind. “It's totally unacceptable that the Ministry of Environment is part of this appeal. That's wrong for the ministry, they're using taxpayers money to appeal this tribunal decision,� he said. “Lastly, Gilead — a huge corporation — is asking the court for costs. That's disgusting, that's totally unacceptable. Mainly for those reasons I'll support this.�

Grant to help pay for County Rd. 14 bridge Province covers 83 per cent of $1.5-million bill Chad Ibbotson

Staff writer

Provincial funding has been approved for a bridge replacement in the municipality's north end. Prince Edward County officials announced last week that funding has been approved for the bridge on County Rd. 14 under the Ontario Government Municipal Infrastructure Investment Initiative (MIII) capital program. The grant — worth $1,245,000 — represents 83 per cent of the approximately $1.5 million cost of replacing the bridge. The bridge is expected to be designed this year with construction slated to take place sometime in 2014 between spring and late fall. A release from the mu-

nicipality says the replacement wasn't planned for this early in the municipal roads program. “Replacing this bridge became an unexpected priority in late 2012 after staff noted significant pavement settlement and deterioration,� the release says. “Load restrictions were immediately issued and remain in effect.� The release says the funding application process was facilitated through the new community development department while the application itself was developed collaboratively between several municipal departments. “Part of the community development mandate is to make applications and secure funding for priority projects on behalf of the municipality,� the release says. Prince Edward County mayor Peter Mertens said the funding eases the blow to the municipal budget and will also contribute to the economy. “Not only will this grant reduce the burden on taxpayers, but it will also create jobs which contributes to a stable economy,� said Mertens. “I would like to thank all staff for their contribution to the funding and planning of this project.� The provincial government has made $90 million available through 2013 and 2014 under the MIII capital program. The funding looks to help municipalities deal with critical water and wastewater projects, roads, and bridges. It is targeted to municipalities and local service boards that, otherwise, may not be able to afford to take on the financial burden of large-scale priority projects.

■ Cherry Valley men Fred Peeling and Jake Dainard appeared in court on a rae charge of “killing with the intent to steal” as they killed a heifer owned by Howard Reid while it was at pasture on the Ostrander Farm near Point Petre. The pasture’s owner reported a cow had been taken from his property with just the head left behind. Police interviewed hide dealers and found a match in Belleville. A butcher also provided testimony leading to the arrests. The men were remanded with bail set at $1,000 each. ■ A large frame barn measuring 60 x 70 belonging to Harold Spencer of Elmbrook burned to the ground. A threshing separator was also destroyed in the blaze. Fortunately, neither livestock nor other machinery was present. ■ Recently ordained priest Rev. Paul B. Brennan returned to Picton after 13 years of study to celebrate his first high mass at St. Gregory The Great Catholic Church.

■ The Prince Edward Chamber of Commerce resolved to go before town council asking for the placement of rubbish containers at strategic places in Picton to help alleviate the condition of filth on the streets and that signage be placed with the containers to encourage the public to use them to throw away garbage. ■ Picton council ordered street signs to mark the balance of all street intersections which join connecting highways coming into the town. Safety-Lite stop signs were also ordered for many intersections in a move that was designed to increase protection for the motoring public. ■ Following complaints from visitors about the conditions of the Outlet Beach, the Chamber decided it would increase from $75 the sum it would contribute to shoreline clean-up to keep the beach in a pristine condition for its many visitors.

■ The Task Force on Policing was to host a public meeting in Belleville to discuss the policing needs of municipalities in the region as well as the financing related to those needs. Picton Police Commission chair J. L. Mason said his organization was eagerly awaiting the opportunity to share information and make submissions. ■ With drought conditions growing worse, many dairy farmers in the county resorted to using their winter rations of hay and grain to feed their cows. Several rural residents also reported dry wells. ■ The County’s welfare administrator Arne Nielson, 55, died of a heart attack while at a convention in Toronto.

20 years ago — 1993

■ Five officers with the Picton OPP detachment were trying a new Tilley hat that the force was considering switching to from its traditional peaked cap during certain functions.

Kingbirds may be exception among flycatchers

Almost every day, early morning finds Belleville resident Kenzo Dozono along the H.R. Frink Centre’s famous boardwalk, at Plainfield. We’re not talking 9 am. early. We’re talking sunrise, early! Kenzo Dozono sensei who holds an eighth degree black belt in karate and teaches both karate and Tai-chi in Belleville, relaxes before and after a rigorous day of training and instructing, by surrounding himself with nature. He finds it at this popular conservation area, 9 km north of Belleville. Through his training, involving patience and compassion, and setting up a regular pattern of morning arrivals at the marsh boardwalk, the marsh inhabitants have come to know him. Those observers, who begin their day much later, cannot possibly envision what the atmosphere is like when the marsh starts to awaken at daybreak. And Kenzo is right there to see it happen as Virginia rails and their young scurry up and down the boardwalk as though it were Hwy 401. On several occasions, there have been soras, and green herons using the boardwalk as a morning race track, and last week, two river otters made a surprise visit. His eight-year-old Corgi/Pomerian dog, Cody, is right beside him and obediently remains motionless and quiet, as Dozono creeps up on birds and photographs them. Some of the photos he has emailed me show his hand ever so gently reaching out and touching some of the


birds. This requires patience, concentration and dedication. Dozono is very observant and very eager to increase his knowledge of nature, and often sends me photos for identification. He has a need to understand the identity of those creatures around him, and what they are doing. Last week, it was a photo of a juvenile eastern kingbird on the railing of the boardwalk and it was doing something most of us would not expect of a species of flycatcher. This one was gulping down a small frog! In the Quinte region, we have 15 species of flycatchers on record as having appeared here. Nine of these occur regularly, seven nest in the region, including the eastern kingbird, one of the larger members of this family. Some bird guides and references would have us believe that flycatchers eat only insects, obtained by a method known as “hawking” - that is, perched on an outer

branch, and sallying out after any flying insect that approaches near enough to be caught. We have all seen kingbirds doing this during spring and summer. These insects may include bees, wasps, ants, beetles, crickets, grasshoppers, locusts, bugs, and flies. Insects, just like other flycatchers. However, if you delve a little deeper into literature on our eastern kingbird, you will find some interesting facts beyond what you may commonly know about kingbirds in our area. What we don’t often see is their habit of supplementing an insect diet with fruit — serviceberries, cherries, blackberries, elderberries, and nightshade — particularly right now as we get closer to fall. During fall migration kingbirds begin to eat a lot of fruit, and fruit becomes increasingly important as they migrate south. In the Amazon where kingbirds winter, their lifestyle includes one of eating almost 100-per cent fruit and they also give up their solitary lifestyle that we see in our area, and start travelling in flocks. Fruit we can accept as we know many species of birds will often swing both ways. Insects being a staple diet with insectivorous birds, but switching over to fruit when insect availability dictates that they must do so. Tree swallows are a good example. When late winter snowstorms and cold weather limit the number of available insects in the spring, tree swallows can survive for a little while on fruit still remain-

ing on bushes that hasn’t already been consumed by wintering birds. Likely not as palatable, but desperate times call for desperate measures. That kingbirds have a penchant for frogs is behaviour we truly don’t expect to see from an insect eating flycatcher here or in the Amazon. Dozono witnessed this firsthand and emailed me a close-up photo of a juvenile kingbird with a frog going down the hatch. According to his account of the unusual incident, the kingbird treated the frog the same way as it would instinctively deal with an oversized insect – by violently battering it against an object, then swallowing it whole. The consumed frog probably supplied the kingbird with enough moisture to last it the entire day, for kingbirds do not drink water. You will never see them at your bird bath. They obtain what moisture they need from the food they eat. Interpretive naturalists tend to refer to themselves as “professionals”. But, we are professionals only in the sense that we engage in this discipline as a profession. In no way do we suggest that we know everything about nature. Like Kenzo, by quietly observing, we learn. And, so do I. The frog thing was totally new to me.

County man dies in farming accident on Victoria Road

George Douglas Carter, 69, was buried under several large bales of hay weighing about 700 pounds each inside a barn on Victoria Road in Ameliasburgh Saturday, Aug. 10. A police investigation concluded the hay fell onto Carter when he opened an access door right next to where the bales were stacked inside. It was believed the

bales were stacked properly, but had shifted over time as animals ate away at them.


A man arrived at the Prince Edward OPP detachment just before 8:30 a.m. Aug. 18 to report a domestic assault. Upon investigation, police believe the 35-year-old coun-

Canadians should seriously discuss Senate reform

IT’S is time that Canadians take a long, hard look at the system of governance they have in Ottawa and have a real discussion about what can be done to make changes for the betterment of the population. While Canadian senators do much more work within committees than many give them credit for, most people in this country can see that the socalled upper house really isn’t serving its most basic purpose that they would have all learned about in elementary school civics classes. Senators may alter the wording in legislation and send it back to the House of Commons for another look, but realistically, when the prime minister can decide who is going to sit in that chamber, it really loses the teeth it should have had as a body of elder statesmen who could stop bad legislation from being enacted. The Senate is in many ways just as partisan as the Commons, and it appears many people of all stripes advancing to that status like to use the perks of their position a little too much — as if a $132,000 salary wasn’t generous enough for the ability to serve one’s country. The question, however, is how to refocus that level of government given the strict amending formula provided within the Canadian constitution and the regional nature of awarding Senate seats, which has also been a source of contention for several parts of the country who question the current balance of seat distribution. Some say an elected body would fit the bill because those members would be responsible directly to their electorate and it would ensure that no party could stack the seats in its favour. One would wonder, however, if there is a landslide win for any party if there would be any built in checks and balances over such a system. Perhaps, the best change might be one where the Senate remains a body where individuals stay in their seats until they reach retirement age, just as they do now, but instead of being selected by the prime minister, perhaps the members should be elected from the population. That way, voters could ensure that their representatives are appointed in keeping with the political values they believe in at the time of an appointment and not manipulated according to whom is in power at any given day. Or, maybe it is just time to abolish the Senate and put the money that is being spent on it into some really progressive changes that would help more voices be heard in Canadian politics, perhaps by changing the funding and electoral systems to recognize the popular vote and not just the gains of parties or people who come past the post first. Maybe then, Canadian politics at all levels will go beyond just the idea of waving the party banner and forcing through one agenda back to the idea of representatives truly lobbying for their constituents and having more freedom to shape public policy and develop bills that a greater plurality of people will find acceptable to move forward with.

Staff-recommended reading and a quality books sale

Most of us who work at the library are avid readers, as can be expected, and we are always happy to share recommendations of our favourite books. Over the summer, these are some of the diverse titles that we have enjoyed. Sue read The Interestings by Meg Wolitzer. It is the story is of six teenagers at a summer camp for the arts who become inseparable and of their lifelong bond. Wolitzer follows these characters from the height of youth through middle age, as their talents, fortunes, and degrees of satisfaction diverge. “The story has great insight into relationships,” says Sue. Krista recommends The Auschwitz Volunteer: Beyond Bravery by Pilecki Witold. “This is an amazing book,” says Krista. A true story by polish army officer Witold Pilecki, it is his account of time inside a camp at Auschwitz. What makes the book exceptional is that the officer volunteered to be arrested by the Germans so that he could report from inside the camp. His intelligence reports, smuggled out in 1941, were among the first eyewitness accounts of Auschwitz atrocities. Pilecki received brutal treatment until he escaped in April 1943. This book is the first English translation of a 1945 expanded version of the report he wrote of his experience. Jennifer recommends a Canadian mystery novel she read by Howard Shrier called Miss Montreal . The fourth novel in the series featuring Toronto private investigator Jonah Geller, it finds the central figure back home after a disastrous case in Boston that left his partner badly injured and the usually fearless detective feeling raw. So when his company, World Repairs, is hired investigate the murder of an old acquaintance, a fellow Jew found in a laneway with a Star of David carved into his chest, Geller is only too happy to outrun his demons by getting on with it. NOW magazine wrote of the novel, “Miss Montreal is one of those books you can’t put down. It’s a great addition to the world of crime fiction and a must-read for fans of La Belle Ville.” Linda recommends Eye of God by James Rollins. This is a historical mystery and scientific exploration novel by the bestselling author. It reveals an apocalyptic vision of the future, predicted by the distant past, combining new scientific discoveries with plausible theory that leads to a shocking conclusion. “A great summer read, and a real page-turner,” says Linda. Tracy, along with her niece and a friend, all read the highly popular S.C. Stephens series Thoughtless,



Reckless, and Effortless. The stories centre on a small town girl who moves to the city on a scholarship to university, following her faithful, stable boyfriend. Problems begin when she becomes torn between her reliable boyfriend and the local rock star. “We all both loved and hated the characters,” says Tracy, “…you hate them, you throw the book at their stupidity, but then you cannot stop reading to find out if they will ever get it together.” The library has this series on its Kobo e-readers for lending. I read a great recommendation made to me by the Library’s CEO, Barb Sweet, entitled The Truth. The author is Michael Palin. I was familiar with Palin’s excellent non-fiction travel books and his work with Monty Python, but did not know of his fiction writing, so this was an unexpected and pleasant surprise. In The Truth journalist Keith Mabbut is offered a great opportunity at just a time in his life when he needs something meaningful. He is hired to write the biography of an elusive and highly influential activist and humanitarian, Melville Hamlish. Mabbut’s search to uncover the real man takes him to environmentally sensitive locations under attack in India and has him discovering more than he had expected. The plot is clever and the characters wholly believable. The questions raised about the cost of progress, media manipulation and hero worship make this a thought provoking book, but the inventive plot and brilliant writing are what drives the reader to keep turning pages. These titles and other great reads are all available at the library. If you are looking to buy a good read in support of the library, please mark your calendars for this Saturday, Aug. 24 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. when the Friends of the Picton Library will be holding their popular “Quality Books Sale”. Come for great deals on gift quality used books and help support your local public library.

Age-in-place plans must include affordable housing

I have been following the discussion of the McFarland property development plan with concern, given the need for affordable housing in Prince Edward County, and wider civic engagement on this issue. First, I concur with the detailed advice offered by Pat Zolf on what has been presented so far, and have been disappointed by the lack of adequate response from the municipality to the serious points that she

raises. Second, from the point of view of sustainable and resilient community-building, the need to address the affordable housing situation in this community is a high priority that could soon become a crisis. Any use of municipal lands that does not carefully attend to that fact indicates a disingenuous approach on the part of the municipality. As I pointed out in the discussion on the blog of what we have been told so far, there are groups of citizens who have been meeting to discuss affordable housing and aging-in-place needs because it relates directly to them and their families, since they live here and are planning to continue living here. I suggest that the voices of those who have had the intention of making the county their home are not just heard, but listened to.

They can bring insights to bear that outside developers are ignorant of, and often impervious to, since their priorities lie elsewhere. Given the volatility of the shifting economy, working with old and generic models does little to enhance the prospects for sustainable growth and social cohesion in this community. Renia Tyminski

A confession about how Walmart came to Canada

Everyone knows I do silly things, so I thought I’d better tell you this story that happened back in 1992 or 1993. My husband Sid and I were in Florida and when I was in Walmart, I bought some nice sweatshirts to give to my neighbours at home. They said “shop to you drop at Walmart.” After I gave them to my neighbours, I took their pic-

ture and sent a copy to Sam Walton, the owner of WalMart and with it, a note saying he should have a store in the area. Of course, I was bragging about how beautiful it is here in Picton. His secretary wrote me a nice letter back saying that Walton was very ill, so she was writing it for him. She said they had no thoughts of ever moving to Canada, but thanked me for my letter.


Authors Janet Kellough, left, and Vicki Delaney launched their newest novels, 47 Sorrows and A Winter Kill respectively, at the Picton library Thursday. (Submitted photo)

Then, a few months later, the talk around Picton was that Walmarts were going to be in this area and how hard that would be on our little stores. I’m listening to all this conversation, but I never tell anyone it was my fault. It sure didn’t take Walmart very long to change their minds about Canada as very soon, two of the first stores were in Barrie and

Belleville. They put the first one in Barrie in March 1994 and that just happens to be my hometown. (No, I didn’t mention Barrie in the letter, just the Picton area). So, nearly 20 years later, I’m confession that it was my fault. Is everybody mad at me? I may have to hide for a few months. Mary Wellein Picton

Closure of Black River launch saddens neighbours

As of Aug. 1, 2003, the Black River community was disappointed at the short sightedness of the closure of the boat launch at the Black River Cheese Factory. The local neighbours disapprove of this decision and are irate. We feel the launch is just as important to us as the factory. This launch has been a part of our community for many, many years. It is enjoyed and used by neighbours, commercial fishermen, the Ministry of

Natural Resources, county residents and tourists, all who in turn support the cheese factory. There was a small notice posted at the launch only a few days before they closed it. There are many boaters still trying to access the launch and they are also surprised and angry at the closure. We would like to see the boat launch reopened. Karen Cowan Black River

Rum running past comes to life Cast overcomes obstacles to share tales of county history AdAm BrAmBurger

Staff writer

Rum running during the American prohibition was big business in and around Prince Edward County. That said, it wasn’t easy business. The law, the frigid weather, and countless other obstacles popped up. In the end, however, the goods often got delivered to Lake Ontario’s south shore and those who succeeded profited. It’s fitting, then, that a show about that dirty little secret came together through some of its own complications with the audience not knowing the wiser at the Cannery Row Summer Theatre Series at Waupoos Marina Saturday. Suzanne Pasternak explained that her original show The County Rum Runners lost two cast members within the past couple weeks and it had to be significantly rewritten before opening day. “We were running by the seat of our pants,” she said. “It went from two daughters to one and let’s make it work. That’s showbiz.” Collectively, Pasternak, musicians Tom Leighton and Mark Despault, and actor Rick Zimmerman had worked together many times before, so they had no problem pitching in and writing right up until the morning of the show. Actress Jenica Hammett joined in with just three days to go to learn her lines and songs, add to the writing ensemble, and put some choreography into the show. “It was wonderful, all I did the last three days was listen to the CDs of the songs, write notes, and work my bum off,” she said. “I work

better under pressure.” Both Leighton and Despault wrote new, interesting songs just this week to enhance the score. In the show, Hammett plays Zimmerman’s twentysomething daughter who provides a comic foil for his stories of his fellow sailors who made their livelihoods moving goods in the cold of winter and dark of night to avoid the Coast Guard. She also offered another human element, showing how many young ladies mourned for one of the younger, more charming rum runners. She brought strong, deep vocals and good timing to her role. Zimmerman, offering the audience the character of a loveable drunkard shared his stories with his fine blend of humour and passion. He said his developing his character was a bit of a balancing act. “The fun or the challenge of it is to keep getting the stories across and telling the stories in their setting and having fun with the character at the same time,” he said. If it's all about the history, gets dry, if it's all about the character, miss the history.” That’s much like any oral history and, indeed, this show is a continuation of that. Pasternak talked to some people who actually knew legendary rum runners like Bruce Lowery and Ben Kerr in the late 1980s and also borrowed from the extensive research Bill Hunt did on the topic earlier that decade. Most of the stories shared actually happened, including tales where smugglers had to abandon their cargo in the water, ones where people on Main Duck Island “A lot of the facts are

truthful, it happened in Prince Edward County,” Hammett said. “Myself and my father's character were fictional characters, but everything else is based on history. I think it's really nice for people to know their history and what people would do just for alcohol.” Pasternak indicated sharing that history has always been an important part of the shows she’s worked on. “My part of it, the research, the stories, that's 25 years of work. For Bill Hunt, that a colossal amount of oral history he collected in early 80 It's a fantastic history lesson for people, but entertaining them at the same time.” She said that she has high hopes that the group can continue working on its shows with the idea of creating a series including the Rum Runners, The County Show, and perhaps another musical that would span over a week or two next year. Zimmerman said he has really looked forward to the creative process that led to the show they performed twice before sizeable crowds Saturday. “It's so great to work with these people, “he said. “I like the sharing and the fact we kind of keep the ball rolling to do the next incarnation or next version of the show.” Several of the cast members indicated they really liked staging the show at the Waupoos Marina as it was out doors and it proved to be an appropriate setting for a local story about boats and sailors on the lake nearby. Ironically, though the show was about the free flow of liquor, the musical also raised money for the Bellwood Foundation, an addictions counselling centre.

Regent request for larger exterior doors denied for heritage reasons Committee of the whole sides with advisory committee despite foundation’s goals of improved patron accessibility Chad IbboTSoN

In a decision that was seen among several councillors as the first test of the new Picton Heritage District, committee of the whole voted against a request from the Regent Theatre Foundation to install larger exterior doors at the front of the Main Street mainstay. Regent Theatre Foundation board of directors member Peter Blendell spoke on the foundation's behalf at last Thursday's committee-of-the-whole meeting. Blendell asked that the committee approve the foundation's building permit request, which the Prince Edward Heritage Advisory Committee (PEHAC) had said should

be denied. The doors were one of 10 items the foundation was seeking approval for and the only one to be denied. Ultimately the committee voted strongly in favour of the PEHAC recommendation. Much of the discussion centred around a heritage versus accessibility theme, which was thoroughly debated amongst councillors and representatives of both the Regent and PEHAC. Councillor Terry Shortt was among those who said heritage had to take precedent in this case. “We have just given downtown Picton a heritage designation and this is a test of our resolve in that matter,” he said. “We know these doors pass as far as

PETER MERTENS MAYOR current building codes go, as far as accessibility goes.” Shortt said the Regent is an important part of the community and there are very few such theatres left. “A lot of the old theatres that had this look, this feel about it are gone,” he said. “… We seem to be losing it in pieces and this is just an-

other piece to lose.” Mayor Peter Mertens also suggested council must protect heritage by upholding council policies. “The heritage district has to be more than just words on paper,” he said. “There has to be a willingness and there has to be a desire to support what we put in that document.” Mertens said council relies on PEHAC to be the experts when it comes to heritage and councillors should strongly consider the advisory committee's recommendation. “As much as I'd like to see accessibility improve, I'm told that the accessibility is not being compromised. I have to go with that expertise,” he said. Councillor Heather

Campbell disagreed, saying even though the doors technically aren't in contravention of accessibility standards, it doesn't mean they're all that safe either. “There is a difference between compliance and reality,” she said. Campbell said those representing the theatre are there every day watching people come in and helping them when necessary. She said elderly residents with canes, walkers, or wheelchairs could be at risk of being hit with the suggested 29-inch doors. “If they have those fears, they're not going to come out into our community,” Campbell said. Campbell put forward an amendment to allow the foundation to move for-

ward with the new 36-inch doors, but the motion lost. The Regent is designated under the Ontario Heritage Act, but also falls within the new Picton Heritage District. Any building permit application for modifications to designated portions of the building must go to PEHAC for a recommendation. Blendell said the foundation was suggesting the landmark's current 29-inch doors which open into the lobby be replaced with the wider 36-inch doors which are the current standard. “The first reason they said we should not be allowed to widen the doors to the Regent Theatre is that new doors could be installed within the existing openings and meet all modern efficiency standards,” he said. “That statement is true if by modern efficiency standards they mean energy efficiency standards only. If they mean any larger sense of what's comfortable for the users, what the property owners would prefer, what the Ontario Building Code calls for, what's best for fire safety, emergency distress — it's not true.” Blendell also contested PEHAC's assertion that smaller doors in the existing opening would still offer barrier-free access to the community. “It's true in a very narrow sense. There is hardware that will open two doors at once to provide barrier-free access, but the fact is the public just doesn't like that solution as much as the one the Regent is proposing,” he said. A staff report submitted to the committee on Thursday says the Regent Theatre was designated in 1999 for its architectural and historical value. The designation makes specific note of “the central theatre doors.” “PEHAC has discussed the proposed changes to the facade and other renovations in detail and supports nine of the 10 proposed renovation items,” the report says. “PEHAC does not support the proposed changes to the door entryway since, in their opinion, it would alter the facade in such a way that would detract from the heritage and architectural integrity of the building.” PEHAC member Geoff Heinricks reiterated that point on Thursday. He said the advisory committee did it's best to reach a compromise and said the doors are not in violation of the building code or accessibility standards. “As far as the accessibility issue, that's not what this is about. With the building code the Regent is in compliance,” he said.

The Ontario Drug Benefit Program and seniors The staff members of Community Care for Seniors field many, many questions and are sometimes asked about the cost of prescription drugs. It has come to our attention that some seniors are not aware of the Ontario Drug Benefit Program (ODB) so I went to the website of the Ministry of Health and Long-term Care to find information to share with you. This is the web site address where you can find this and more information Through the Ontario Drug Benefit (ODB) Program, the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care covers most of the cost of prescription drug products listed in the Ontario Drug Benefit (ODB) Formulary, as well as some exceptional cases. If you belong to one of the following groups of Ontario residents and you have a valid Ontario health card, you are eligible for drug coverage under the ODB Program: people 65 years of age and older; residents of long-term care homes; residents of homes for special care; people receiving professional services under the home care program; and Trillium Drug Program registrants. In addition, people receiving social assistance (Ontario Works or Ontario Disability Support Program



assistance), you are eligible for ODB coverage. As long as the drug products are prescribed by an authorized Ontario prescriber, the ODB Program will cover prescription drug products listed on the Ontario Drug Benefit Formulary, including some nutrition products and diabetic testing agents. Some products listed on the Formulary will only be funded in limited circumstances and/or for a limited duration in time. (For more information go to the website address above). For a listing of what the ODB does not cover, please go to the website. The ODB program automatically pays for the

above listed drug products for people eligible for ODB coverage if the drugs are purchased in an accredited Ontario pharmacy that is online with the ministry's Health Network System; or from an Ontario doctor licensed to sell prescription drug products who is online with the ministry’s health network system. Prescription drugs purchased outside Ontario are not reimbursed by the ODB program. If you’re a senior, on the first day of the month after you turn 65 years of age, take your prescription and health card to your pharmacy. Tell the pharmacist that you’re now eligible for the ODB program. Depending on your income, you might be able to pay a lower payment per prescription through the Seniors co-payment program. For more information visit this website or call ServiceOntario, Infoline at -866-532-3161, TTY 1-800-387-5559 anytime between 8:30 a.m - 5 p.m.


With chores at home, either inside or out, Community Care can provide the names of carefully screened workers available at reasonable rates. Help is available with yard work, grass cut-

ting, leaf raking (fall is coming), snow shoveling (winter, too), light and heavy housework, meal preparation, and respite – both during the day and overnight. Call the office for more info.

There could be plenty of reasons people choose to grow their own garlic


case in the county, easy access to an adequate water source is important. While garlic has few problems with pests or diseases in home gardens, it is best to avoid areas where alliums, onions, chives and the like have been growing as they are in the same family and therefore often susceptible to the same ills. There was recently an interesting report in a garden magazine where a woman had planted a thousand garlic cloves in an old cow pasture. The crop apparently failed, as after the initial growth spurt, the plants all developed yellowing leaves and small yellowing bulbs. The gardening columnist who responded to her question regarding this crop failure felt that it could be either due to a lack of sufficient water or to a lack of the needed nutrients in the soil. Garlic beds are said to be medium in their require-

ment for nutrients. If you are planning to plant cloves in an area that has not been used for gardens you may be more successful if you have the soil tested in the previous year. Otherwise you may want to augment the soil generously with compost and composted manure if the latter is not part of the compost make up. Garlic prefers a pH between 6.5 and 7 and thus does well in the county’s neutral to alkaline soils. It is best to buy garlic bulbs locally at markets and roadside stands as garlic is best planted in the area to which it has adapted. Given that local garlic has been harvested recently, it is a great time to buy garlic bulbs both for seed purposes as well as for consumption. It can be more difficult to locate locally grown garlic if you wait until it is time to plant in October. Since using the largest cloves as seeds produces the largest bulbs the following year, use the smaller cloves in a bulb for eating after removing the large exterior cloves for planting. October is a good month to plant garlic though I have been successful planting as late as early in November. The bulbs used for next year’s plants should be chosen and the cloves separated just before planting. Garlic cloves are best planted 10 to 15 cm (4 to 6 in) from each other. Once the ground is frozen I cover the soil with 10 to 15 cm of straw to help the ground stay frozen. In a warm winter this ploy is not fully successful but the garlic has always

survived this treatment. I remove the straw that covers the leaves of the young garlic plants before the end of April. Scapes begin to appear in early June. They are generally removed at the point that they have looped once or twice. The idea behind this is that if they are not removed they steal nutrients from the bulbs. Scapes can be used in a variety of ways in the kitchen. They provide a milder garlic flavour than the cloves. As the tips of the garlic begin to brown water should be decreased. When about 40 per cent of the top has browned the garlic should be harvested and then dried either in the sun or under a


One of the most thoughtprovoking and amusing questions I have been asked was by a woman who wondered why her father-in-law, whose garden she had inherited, had chosen to grow garlic in his flower beds. We could come up with any number of potential answers, but without being able to ask the gardener who planted them we would never know the real reason. Were they meant to be simply decorative, to repel pests or simply to use the space available to grow garlic? It could be all of those reasons or others as yet unknown. Today many people seem to be either growing their own garlic or at least purchasing their garlic from local sources. When I first realized that I had garlic growing on a property I bought here in 1975 I had very limited ideas about what it even looked like. As a result I decided that the bulbils near the end of the scapes were the actual garlic. That certainly made harvesting it easier as the soil was almost pure clay and required a great deal of effort to remove anything that was growing below the surface. Fortunately I have learned to both recognize and grow garlic since then. Garlic can be grown in a standard gardening bed, in raised beds, in pots and even in flower beds. They are not difficult to grow but do best with full sun and in well drained beds. They also need regular watering until just before the harvesting period. When there is less than adequate rain, as is often the

roof in a garage or garden shed. If you prefer not to take risks harvest one or two plants and allow to dry for several days. Once they are sufficiently dried so that the cloves are cleanly separated, the tops and roots can be removed and the bulbs stored in a cool dry space, preferably a root cellar for a longer shelf life. At or just above freezing point is best for preserving garlic for use over the winter so that a root cellar provides the perfect storage. Not having a root cellar I have chosen instead to happily use sprouting garlic in the late winter. Sprouting seeds of any kinds are viewed as healthy eating and cloves are the best garlic seeds.

In terms of type of garlic, I have used only hard necked garlic locally in the last decade or so although I have helped my daughter grow soft necked garlic in B.C. If you see garlic with their stems braided, it will be soft necked garlic. Generally garlic, at our road sides stands are the hard necked varieties. This is the type of garlic that produces scapes. An excess of garlic bulbs are never a problem as friends and neighbours eagerly take them and often offer to take more than you can spare! Have a gardening question? Send it to and we’ll get an answer for you..

Yard sale brings in $3,500 for humane society THURSDAY, AUGUST 22, 2013

Visitors rounded donations up to provide support for cats

Smitty’s Warehouse Operation BEST ST

Staff writer

Not every treasure found at the Loyalist Humane Society this past weekend stood on four paws. While people typically visit the County Rd. 4 site to find a lively kitten or a cuddly older companion, for three days, they were also invited to find their favourite previously loved merchandise while helping to care for the cat population. On Thursday night, volunteers lined up piles of trinkets including clothing, household goods, toys, and collectables for the society’s annual yard sale. Sandy Szirtes, a school principal from Cornwall has been organizing the sale for several years. She regularly performs in fundraising concerts with her sister Lorain Sine and felt the event would be a way to raise additional funds to help the shelter with its operations. It costs the Loyalist Humane Society between $6,000 to $7,000 each month for veterinary bills alone, let alone the costs associated with feeding a population of cats that typically balances out around 200, maintaining the buildings, and keeping its living areas clean and hygienic. Szirtes said this year, the sale experienced its best turnout in recent memory. “Over the past three days, we’ve raised more than $3,500,” she said. “Last year, the same sale raised just $1,400.” She noted that a lot of volunteers gave generously and made sure they

spread the word about the event to friends and family. In particular, Bessie and Raymond Villeneuve and Darlene Johnson were relentless in their efforts to help the sale. Another volunteer who worked with Szirtes to organize the sale, Don Roberts, commended the people shopping at the sale for going the extra mile to help the cause. “Almost everyone who came bought something and a lot of the people would donate the balance,” he said. “They would round up to the next bill, $5, $10, or $20.” While many items did move over the weekend, there was still a healthy inventory on the tables around dusk Sunday night. Roberts said the volunteers will leave the remaining items on the tables for the rest of this week with people welcomed to pick up whatever they like for a simple donation to the shelter.

After that, the clothing, soft goods, and children’s toys remaining will be donated to the Community Care For Seniors thrift shop. While the yard sale brought much needed funding for the shelter, it also helped bring people into the facility to see the cats and it may have provided a spark in the number of adoptions. “There were at least six cats and kittens adopted during the sale,” said the society’s manager Anne Moffat. “I’m not sure how many came out because of the sale, but some of them did for sure.”

Moffat indicated that the shelter recently received a litter of four newborn kittens and it is looking for a foster mother that it might be able to pair with those kittens. As usual, the Loyalist Humane Society has a need for volunteers and for supplies. Those wishing to donate wet and dry cat food or cleaning supplies are welcomed to drop them off at the shelter. In other fundraising news for the shelter recently, the Barley Days Brewery donated $1,997 in tastings proceeds for the month of July recently.

Hubbs Creek starts using its grapes to make its own name in industry Last week I introduced you to Tony Auciello of Terra Cello Winery whom I introduced as one of the youngest and most passionate winemakers here in the county. Today I want to introduce you to Battista Calvieri, owner (along with his wife MaryAnn - 28 years - and younger brother Joseph) and winemaker at Hubbs Creek Vineyard. Also Italian, Battista's passion runs as deep as Tony's but he's a "bit" older! I've know Battista for a few years now but this was the first chance I had to catch up to him this summer as he has been very busy since their opening on the May long weekend.

Born and raised in Toronto, Battista is proud of his southern Italian background. He says that drinking wine with meals is an important part of their cuisine and is a cultural tradition. He grew up around wine making and while living in Tuscany for a few months he visited and talked to the wine makers of the area. He found a real passion there about making good quality wine and he caught the bug! Hubbs Creek Vineyard is a family-run vineyard situated in the township of Hillier near the town of Wellington, approximately two kilometers north of Lake Ontario. It is located on a

500 million-year-old geological formation known as the Lindsay formation from the middle Ordovician period. The soil is stony (limestone fragments) and calcareous by nature. It varies in depths anywhere from 18 to 36 inches and lies on a fragmented lime stone bedrock and is locally known as Hillier clay Loam. It has a high lime content that is ideal for growing and making Burgundy style wines. After buying their current property in 2001, over three thousand vines of various clones of Dijon Pinot Noir went into the ground in the spring of 2002. The vineyard spacing for this first planting was four feet between the vines and five-and-a-half feet between the rows and is considered high density. Also, a single row of Dolcetto went in as a experimental plot. In the spring of 2003 some 2,500 Pinot noir vines

were planted and they also planted 1,200 Pinot gris vines. For the 2003 planting they decided to use a more modern European approach when it comes to vineyard layout and used a different spacing strategy. This time they were spaced one metre between the vines and two meters between the rows. This is still considered a medium to high density. In the spring of 2004 another (1,200 vines) eight rows of Pinot gris were also planted at this spacing of two meters wide by one meter between the vines. Their latest planting was in 2010. Some 1,600 of Chardonnay were planted also using the modern European spacing and another row of Dolcetto was also added. They chose three varieties from the same region of France (Burgundy) because they suit the soils and cool climate found here in the county.

Entertain with the environment in mind

Living an eco-friendly lifestyle is a goal for many people. Whereas little thought was given to protecting the environment in the past, nowadays men, women and children alike recognize the impact their behavior has on the immediate and long-term future of the planet. Though some eco-friendly men and women may feel as if they have ex-

hausted the ways in which they can live a more environmentally conscious lifestyle, there are always new ways to consider to protect the environment in everything you do. For example, hosting a party for family and friends can be a great opportunity to have some eco-friendly fun. The following are a few ways party hosts can entertain with the environment in mind.

• Serve organic foods and beverages. One of the easier ways to turn a party into an eco-friendly affair is to serve organic foods and beverages. Visit your local farmer's market for fresh and locally grown organic foods. Organic foods are healthier for the environment and may even be healthier for your guests as well, while locally produced products have a much smaller carbon footprint than products imported from afar. When choosing beverages, opt for organic wines, teas

and juices instead of more traditional and less eco-friendly options. • Don't go disposable. Disposable place settings and utensils might be more convenient when hosting a large gathering, but such products are unnecessarily wasteful, especially if they are not made from recycled materials. When When the weather permits, make use of natural hosting, use your own reusable din- sunlight by moving the party outdoors to reduce nerware.

Another way to entertain with the environment in mind is to take your party outdoors. Make use of a sunny day by moving the festivities outdoors, where you won't need to turn the lights on to see your guests and where you can serve cold foods or foods prepared on a charcoal grill to further reduce your reliance on electricity and gas. Hosting a party and doing so in an environmentally conscious way is easier than many party hosts initially think. A few creative touches can enable your party to be as eco-friendly as it is fun.

Clothes dryers are one area that very seldom receives regular maintenance. Hundreds of home fires and injuries occur each year as a result of excessive heat buildup in clothes dryers caused by blockage of the airflow through the dryer and/or the attached venting system. Most of these fires could easily be prevented with simple

and regular maintenance. Proper venting and regular maintenance makes for a more efficient and safer clothes drying experience and can reduce energy consumption. Lint screens and compartments in the dryer should be checked and cleaned after each load. Lint should also be regularly removed from accessible points in the dryer vent hose connection and exterior vent cover periodically. Even with the regular cleaning of a dryer lint trap, it is possible for a significant amount of lint to accumulate at one or more points in the duct. Vent system blockage also causes


Broker of Record

the dryer motor to work harder and possibly overheat. Lint is flammable and excessive heat can result in the ignition of the trapped lint or other combustible materials in or close to the duct. Improper drying of the clothes is often the first sign of a problem with a dryer venting system. The entire venting system should be regularly checked for damage, leakage, or blockage from lint, bird nests, rodents, etc. Any substantial blockage, whether from lint build-up or other restrictions in the vent hose or ductwork, such as crimped sections, undersized fittings, etc., will obstruct the airflow

At least annually, the entire vent duct should be disconnected and cleaned out along its length, including the exterior damper and cover and portions of the system within the dryer itself (with electric power off). The base of vertical sections will likely contain the most accumulated material. Check your dryer manufacturer’s installation and maintenance instructions for details on proper exhaust venting and the regular maintenance recommended. Regular maintenance can reduce your risks of fire and makes for a more efficient cloths drying experience.

through the dryer as well as the venting system. Lightweight, flexible plastic vent materials are especially susceptible to blockage, damage, or burn though and are no longer acceptable for exhaust ducts. While more difficult to work with, solid aluminum ductwork is the best option for any dryer venting systems. All joints should be fitted and taped, not screwed. Screws will protrude into the duct and should not be used to hold sections together; one screw can be enough to catch lint, allowing for a build-up that can eventually obstruct air flow.

Dishonourable conDuct Blades of Glory

herald Brother William demonstrates to the crowd a move knights wouldn’t typically make, striking an opponent from behind with a weapon. (Adam Bramburger/Gazette staff)

Fighters share own love of history with audiences

KNIGHTS, from page 1

Part of the day’s successes can be attributed to the notion that Blades of Glory has a tried and true program of events to lend to such activities. After taking off his armour to portray Sir Aldric, Mark Englehart spoke a bit about the organization he belongs to. Blades of Glory has a realm in Hastings where it invites Grade 3 to Grade 7 students to learn about history in a hands-on fashion. Since 1994, they’ve had more than 150,000 children visit with their schools and Englehart says they are now looking to host more family events through open Sundays, which offer similar programming to that offered at the festival. “We’ve been all over the place,” Englehart said. “The (Royal Ontario Museum), Casa Loma, Gravenhurst...” Englehart indicated that while the warriors are interested in perfecting their own craft, they’re also quite aware and willing to work with a crowd to ensure the message gets across accurately. “We love the questions. When we get to go out and people ask a lot of questions, that’s gravy for us.” A black belt in karate, Englehart happened to be friends of the owner of the company who asked him to be involved. He gladly accepted and has also found he has taken a keen interest in the history being presented. That interest actually helped Englehart develop the character that he portrays in tournaments. “All of us usually have some historic ties,” he said. “I’m a Teutonic knight and my family is direct descendants of the Teutonics. Sir Aldric was one of my ancestors.” Englehart has even gone to great lengths to learn about what knights were wearing in the 1,200s and 1,300s to ensure his character is accurate. In his armour, for example, there were very few plates compared to some of

the other knights who would enter the field. He said that was because they’d want affordable armour and plate metal was just new. Most Teutonic, he said, wore chain metal, like his outfit. Also to prepare warriors for action, the realm has opened Western Medieval Martial Arts sword training schools in Peterborough and in Campbellford and it is hopeful to bring one to Belleville as well. Englehart said Ragnar (Austin Dyamond) was actually a member of the original class. Once he learned proper swordplay, he was able to join in the fun and games. While the heat is certainly a detriment to fighting under a heavy metal suit of armour, Englehart said there is also a chance of real danger during the fighting. “Occasionally, you miss the armour. If you take a sword strike across the knuckle, it is going to sting,” he said. Most of the injuries come with taking practice swings, however, when there’s not as much sense a fighter is going to hurt themselves, he said. In tournaments, the men are mostly honourable. Instead of taking one free shot they’re allowed under the rules of the competition, many will allow their opponent an opportunity to seek protection first. Judging by the way people reacted to the experience, Riordon said she plans to bring Blades of Glory back to Hillier next summer, albeit she’ll ask them to tweak their program somewhat to offer some variety for returning visitors. “There are other things they could offer like an archery tournament that could offer a new experience,” she said. Riordon added Blades of Glory can also offer a more detailed falconry demonstration than the one offered this year, which actually shows the birds and their handlers hunting and a number of other lessons.

Pirates ready to reload to attemp to keep Schmalz Cup Picton has few spaces to fill as 2013-2014 camp opens Jason parks

Staff writer

The shortest offseason in Picton Pirate history quickly came to an end this past weekend as the club set sail in its defence of the OHA Schmalz Cup championship. After a gruelling three month, five round playoff march that ended in May with the Pirates downing the Essex 73's in five games to win the Ontario Junior C crown, the club was back on the ice at the Essroc Arena this weekend for a pair of sessions. Pirates coach and general manager Ryan Woodward agreed the timeline between is club making Junior C Hockey history and starting up its title defence was short, but the organization “wouldn't have it any other way.” “It's been a quick turn around and we've had to accomplish a lot in a short amount of time but we are really happy with the turnout in camp,” Woodward said. The club is going with a smaller camp this season as there are quite a few veterans ready to reload and take another stab at a possible provincial title. But that doesn't mean the

club is returning en masse from the magical 2012-2013 season. Forward Cole Bolton has already signed with the Kingston Voyageurs and Mitchell Smith, a centre that

had 74 points in 40 regular season games for the club has moved on to the Kitchener Junior B Dutchmen. On the back end, Adam Wood looks poised to take one of the Wellington Dukes

netminding jobs while Jacob Panetta is in the mix to take a job with the Junior A club's defensive corps. The Pirates rookie-of-the year-award winner looked sharp this weekend, con-

trolling the play and looking like he's ready to take the next step in his hockey career. “First and foremost, we pride ourselves in developing players, bringing in

guys that can help us achieve our internal goals while becoming better players,” Woodward said. “Panetta has had a great off season, in great shape and we fully expect him to be playing Junior A hockey this season for the Wellington Dukes.” In every season but one the club has seen its 16-yearold player move on to Junior A hockey. It's a coveted position on the Pirates and Woodward said there is no shortage of prospects pining to be a part of the Picton Pirate process. “There are a number of candidates for our 1997 birth year underage player. It's a point of pride us to have a 16 year old and we take our time with it so we don't make a mistake,” he said. So far, I've been impressed with (Quinte AAA products) Brodie Butt, Calum Kennelly, and Cory Farrell up front and Noah Sager and (Prince Edward County native) Matthew Scott on the back end,” Woodward said. “There's a lot of talent out there and the selection is going to be a very difficult one but I think we will be picking a based on our need where we can give them significant playing time,” he added. The Pirates prospects will be in action tonight in Trenton when they take on the Campbellford Rebels prospects at 7:30 p.m. At the RCAF Arena.

Dukes seeking right mix to contend for Dudley Hewitt Cup on home ice Wellington opens training camp Saturday with a competitive class of recruits from across North America in town Jason parks

bott Griduckis is one of several sophomore Dukes that the club is relying on when it breaks camp for the 2013-2014 season next month. (Adam Bramburger/Gazette staff)

The nine-month Odyssey that will lead the Wellington Dukes to the 2014 Dudley Hewitt Cup Championship starts in earnest this weekend at the Essroc Arena. The club will host its annual late summer training camp and not unlike any other late August session, there is that certain buzz in Wellington that can only be created when top-end Junior A hockey talent is in town. But let this corner be the first to say the buzz is slightly different than in years past. The kids are coming this weekend, that's for sure. But they are good. They are skilled. And they are hungry for a shot at a Central Canada Championship and a birth into the 2014 Royal Bank Cup in Vernon, British Co-

lumbia. Right from the drop of the puck on Saturday at 10 a.m., expect a training camp unlike any you might have seen in years past in Wellington. With the talent Wellington Dukes coach and general manager Marty Abrams has coming this weekend, the action will be fast and furious from the get go. Veterans will feel the challenge from up-and-coming players from North America immediately and it will be up to those second and third year players to fend off the competition. “I think it's going to be a very competitive camp, It's going to be smaller than in pervious years but that usually means a quicker pace. We think it's going to be a very fast paced environment,” Abrams said. The stakes will be high as the club will start discharg-

ing hopefuls on the first day if they are not up to snuff. Abrams wasn't tipping his hand as to the names of the prospects that are coming other than Belleville Bulls draft pick Josh Supryka who will tune up with the Dukes prior to joining the OHL club at the ned of the month for their training camp. “We will get a good look at the (parent club) Belleville Bulls draft picks at their camp which starts Aug. 28 and there could be players that could help us at that camp,” Abrams said. Help aside, it will be up to the veterans to get the Wellington Dukes train full of steam and on the right track right away. The club that went 29-224 last season was loaded with inexperienced players, many playing their first OJHL season. Slick Mike Soucier (7

goals, 15 assists in 46 games), Joe McKewon (9+11 in 53), Cam Nicoll (5+6, 38 games) and Abbott Girduckis (12+7, 53 games) were all first year front liners that should be taking a leap forward this season. On the back end, sophomore defenders Brody Morris and Zach Bishop will be key members of a Wellington defensive corps that had its issues last season but have hopefully developed after last years seasoning. The key towards our success will be on the returning players, all the ice and training they've had over the past 12 months should equate into them becoming better players and if they are better players, we should be able to build on our 29 wins from last season,” Abrams said.

Wellington angler hauls in biggest bass on his lake

“It's really going to come down to how much that group has improved over the last 12 months and who's ready to step up.” In other Dukes news, the club is looking for two billets due to a pair of last minute cancelations. “It's so important to have these kids settled right off the bat and our billet situation is better than it has been in years, but these last minute situations are things all teams deal with,” Abrams said.

Tim Lloyd reeled in some cash fishing Kashwakamak Lake this past weekend. The Wellington native took part in the first annual Land O' Lakes Tourist Association bass fishing tournament on Saturday and reeled in a 3.48 pound large mouth bass which was the heaviest fish weighed at the Kashwakamak weigh station. The beautiful bucketmouth netted Lloyd and his fishing partner Rick Marshall a bevy of cash and prizes from the five lakefish off that included Desert Lake, Big Gull Lake, Sharbot Lake and Loughbrough Lake. While Kashwakamak Lake can yield four- and five-pound bass, Lloyd said he knew a smaller fish was was going to wind up being at the head of the leader board. “We prefished the Lake Friday and it was 26 and nice,” Lloyd said. “That night, it got down to nine and the fish basically shut off.” Between the two of them, the Lloyd and Marshall duo caught about 30 bass in total but almost all were one to two poundssave for the winner.

hockey season, this might be the year to get on board and help the local hockey club out. “No matter what happens, it's going to be a historic year for the hockey club and we want to put our best foot forward. Billets are a pivotal piece of the puzzle. We need our players living in really good homes. I also can't say enough about our core of billets that have supported us over the past seasons. They are the best in the league,” he added. Round the 'Roc: Newcomer Cody Gratton and Girduckis

were outstanding at the recent Ontario Summer Select Showcase in Cornwall. In three games for the OJHL 1 all- star team, Girduckis had a goal and three helpers to lead his team in points. Gratton chipped in with three assists during the weekend c o m p e t i t i o n s . . . Netminder Lucas Machalski had an up and down camp, looking great in one contest but surrendering a handful of goals in the other. It should be noted he was on the weaker of the two OJHL all-star teams and his club only scored four goals in three games.

Using a white senko worm, Lloyd figured he had a tournament fish on when the wannabe lunker finally committed. I knew it was going to be a top fish but then it started to come loose near the boat,” Lloyd said, laughing. “The fish wound up swimming right into the net.” Overall, the winner was

County Rotary clubs receive special recognition for their works District 7070 salutes Wellington trail project, Picton polio fundraisers AdAm BrAmBurger

Staff writer

In recent weeks, both Prince Edward County Rotary Clubs got a boost in the form of special recognition from their district. The Wellington club recently welcomed District 7070 governor Valarie Wafer and assistant governor Michael Parker. After Wafer shared her introductory speech about this year’s theme Engage Rotary, Change Lives, Parker stepped forward to hand the club the Tibor Gregor Award for the district’s best community service project of 2012-2013. Led by member Barry Davidson, an active cyclist himself, the club has been working since last August to restore the Millennium Trail in the Wellington area. The work started with trimming and mulching a stretch of the trail on the east side of Wellington from Conley Road to County Rd. 1. The Rotarians also got to work raising funds and partnering with local contractors in order to widen the trail to 15 feet,

then grade and resurface it to allow more community members to use it. As planned, the Rotarians finished that section and continued to work on two more phases to stretch the renewed trail west through the village for eight kilometres toward Greer Road. Community donations at the club’s bottle depot, an adopt-a-kilometre campaign, and other in-kind gifts and

for others in the county wishing to spread the improvements the length of the 42-kilometre trail. Club president Howard Ziedenberg accepted the award on behalf of his membership, indicating that the many community activities his club undertakes represent the concept of engaging in Rotary and changing people’s lives. Meanwhile, the Picton club

labour helped the club to meet its obligations and carry through with the $70,000 project to be completed this month. Some of the finishing touches on that stretch of trail will include the addition of interpretive signage, rest stations, and a parking area. The success of the project has also convinced Davidson to reach out beyond his own community to offer assistance

was rewarded for its efforts in helping with one of Rotary’s goals in the broader world community. Rotary International has long concerned itself with the eradication of polio worldwide and it continues to work in that direction. Just last week, the organization announced it has partnered with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to inject an additional $200 million to the cause, with the Gates Foundation granting $100 million up front and Rotary raising funds to match it dollar-for-dollar over the next three years. When the organization was asked to lead the global campaign alongside UNICEF and the World Health Organization in 1985, it was reported that more than 350,000 people suffered from the disease in 125 different countries. Last year, Rotarians

learned there were just 227 cases in just three countries — Afghanistan, Nigeria, and Pakistan. Rotary takes part in eradicating polio through the Rotary Foundation, which Rotarians can directly support through donations of their own funds. The Picton club also regularly contributes to the foundation’s PolioPlus campaign in honour of every guest speaker that visits its Tuesday lunch meetings. District 7070’s foundation chair William R. Patchett recently attended one of those meetings to present an award and praise to past president Scott Lavender who has long served as Picton’s foundation chair. ‘Your club, Picton, was most instrumental in supporting the Polio programme thanks to the leadership of Scott Lavender and your fellow Rotarians,” said Patchett.

The scientists and volunteers are ready for a busy fall migration which may see more than 10,00 birds caught and banded at the Prince Edward Point Bird Observatory this year. Over the weekend, this year’s bander-in-charge Stephane Menu and assistant Lizzie Grayshon set up their 12-metre “mist” nets to catch early migrants. Already, they’ve reported a variety of species passing over the county’s south shore including warblers, flycatchers, and sparrows. The nets open each day a half-hour after dawn and remain open for six hours, weather permitting. The banding effort requires OPEN 11AM-5PM SEVEN DAYS A WEEK 613-373-1133

a lot of volunteer time to go smoothly. Typically, volunteers take the birds from the nets, place them in cloth bags to be brought to the banding lab for identification and measurement. That data is then sent to the Canadian Wildlife Service and Bird Studies Canada. The observatory also benefits from volunteers to greet, guide, and serve visitors from around the world visiting to view the migrating birds as they stop by.

Eagles pick up pair of 5-1 wins over Quinte West to even their season mark Under-12 team can leap into second place with success in final two games Jason Parks

Staff writer

The Geodynamics PECSA Eagles are back to the .500 mark with just two games remaining in their schedule. The local rep soccer club scored back-to-back 5-1 wins over the Quinte West Wolverines Thursday and Tuesday evening. The wins move the Eagles to 5-5-3 and more than developing into well rounded soccer players, their coach said the Eagles are turning into well rounded teammates. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You can't help but increase your play and develop into a better player when you are playing against better players,â&#x20AC;? Eagles skipper Andrew Houston said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But you can see the camaraderie develop and that's first and foremost thing. Everyone gets along on this team, there's no issues at all and friendships

are really being developed.â&#x20AC;? Those league results sandwiched an impressive showing at youth soccer tournament in Ottawa where the Eagles won three out of four games but were unable to play in the finals due to a technicality. The Eagles won two of three preliminary games on Saturday and won their first playoff game on Sunday but were eliminated from further play due to a bizarre set of rules that factored in pool seedings, difficulty rankings and plus minus totals. Even though the squad was robbed of a chance to play for a title on Sunday, Houston said the main factor on the weekend was the fact the players had fun and that resulted in wins. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you look at the overall standings, we were fifth out of twelve teams and we played some really

good competition,â&#x20AC;? he added. In Quinte west on Tuesday evening, the Eagles got a pair of goals from Joey Monroe while Devon Wilton, Jack MacCool and Connor Verhoog all had singles. On Thursday at their home pitch, the visiting Wolverines were able to keep leading scorer Monroe quiet but it didn't matter as MacCool, Wilton, Cooper Rogers, Callum MacDonald and Sebastien Traynor all found the range. Keegan Makpah was solid in the Eagle net, stopping every shot sent his way except one.

The Eagles can climb over the .500 mark tonight when they host Portland. The local squad will complete its season next Thursday when they host Belleville and could actually leapfrog the Comets if in the stars align over the final two weeks of the season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We could end up in second place overall if things fall into place and that's a great accomplishment for kids that are in their first year of rep soccer,â&#x20AC;? the coach said. Both home games kick off at 6:30 p.m. at the Johnson Street soccer pitch.

Powell, Rankin earn club championships

Golfers claim overall honours as well as super senior bragging rights

This past weekend, Larry Powell managed to successfully defend his title as the menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and super senior (age 60-69) menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s champion at the Picton Golf and Country Club with a two-round total score of 153. Powellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s closest competitor from the field, Chris Lawlor, managed to come in five strokes back for a total of 153 and the top prize in the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Aâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; flight. The â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Bâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; flight champion this year was Randy Coates, who turned in a score of 167. Tye Eaton was the runner up in that category with a score of 173. Just behind Eaton, the top â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Câ&#x20AC;&#x2122; flight finishers, Pete Lavender and Murray Kinnear turned in scores of 174 and 175 respectively. John Hughes would take the top honours in â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; flight this year with a 190, while Doug Wilson had a score of 192 as runner up. The senior champion (ages 50-59) for 2013 was John Haynes with a score

of 162. In the senator competition for those 70 and older, Garry Daly took the title scoring 178. Experience also proved valuable in the womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s club championship as Deb Rankin also earned a double victory with the overall womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s title and the super senior womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lead as she shot 178 overall. Seven strokes behind Rankin, there was a tie atop the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Aâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; flight as Heather Kinnear and Ilona Anderson each turned in a 185. The â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Bâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; flight champion was B.J. Campbell this year as she finished with a final score of 190, just four strokes ahead of runner-up Eve Forsyth. In â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Câ&#x20AC;&#x2122; flight, Murial Thibert and Karen Insley also claimed a tie in first place as they both scored 201 over the weekend. Kinnear claimed the trophy among the seniors with a 185, while Campbell was the top female senator.
