In the eyes of the general and objective sporting public, Brian Price's silver olympic medal he won in London earlier this month is less than the gold he gained four years ago at the Beijing Games. But try telling the Ameliasburgh native that and you will likely get a contradictory response. The coxswain of the men's eight rowing team that staged a dramatic comeback to claim the silver medal over the fading Great Britain entry this past month was at his old stomping grounds Wednesday at a reception at the Ameliasburgh Town Hall. Over 250 people showed up to greet Price, check out his silver medal and speak to the 36-year-old who beat leukemia as a youth and went on to be one of Canada's most decorated coxswains. After his 2008 triumph, it took Price almost a year to come back home from his current residence in Victoria. This time, the turn around was much quicker. “A day and a half after taking part in the closing ceremonies, I was back in Prince Edward County so it was definitely on people minds a little more (than in 2009) and to go from seeing medals on TV to seeing one in your hands I'm sure had a pretty big impact,” Price told

Now that the Mars rover Curiosity has successfully landed on the surface of the red plant, a PECI graduate will have a hand in deciding where it goes and what it discovers. Sophiasburgh native Nick Boyd is a part of a team at the University of Guelph that built one of 10 scientific instruments on board the rover, one known as the Alpha Particle X-Ray Spectrometer (APXS), an all-Canadian contribution to the NASA-led mission. Boyd explains that the instrument sits on the end of the rover's arm and when it is placed in contact with a rock or soil target, it maps particles and radiation to help scientists discover the elemental composition of what they are looking at — an valuable piece in discovering whether Mars could have supported life and what capabilities it has for future exploration. "These data form an important piece of the puzzle on their own, but they are also used tactically when planning the rover's actions to decide whether or not to do a further analysis of a given target by the big analytical instruments in the rover belly," said Boyd. Not only did Boyd help build the instrument over a six-year period as part of a team led by physicist Ralf Gellert at Guelph, he is also the operations lead on the project, which means he is responsible for the day-today tactical operations of the instrument on the Mars surface. "For the APXS, while operating on Mars, there are a couple roles that need to be staffed each day," he said. "I often fill those roles myself, but also I am responsible to train other science team members for them. The operations process is very complex and interesting." Basically, Body said the team collects the data trans-

mitted by the instrument, analyzes it and then passes it on to the Mars Science Laboratory team, which decides what the rover should do. Once that team makes its plan, it passes along its required usage for the APXS and Boyd's team (stationed in California) writes the command sequences to follow through with the plan. Finally, the sequences are transferred along with those for the other instruments to Curiosity. Boyd said recently, his team received the first data back from the instrument. Following a Nov. 26 launch from Cape Canaveral, Florida, it landed on Mars Aug. 6. "Just a couple days ago, we received the very first data back from Mars to tell us the instrument still works after the rocket launch, hundreds of millions of kilometres flying through space and that completely amazing landing — it was a great day for us," he said. After a few months of working on the project, Boyd said his team will return to their respective laboratories to continue working remotely by phone and Internet. There is a special operations centre set up at the University of Guelph or that purpose. Boyd said such an amazing opportunity came almost by chance for him.

Washroom funding proposal approved Council backs library’s bid for funding for new public facilities Chad Ibbotson

Staff writer

Councillors have given their approval to an application for funding which could bring improved public washroom facilities to downtown Picton. County of Prince Edward Public Library and Archives CEO Barbara Sweet brought the request to committee of the whole last Thursday, asking for permission from council to apply to the Community Infrastructure Improvement Fund for funding that would go toward improved washrooms at the Picton branch. While the request will still have to be approved at council on Aug. 28, the majority of councillors stood behind the library board's plan to upgrade public accessibility to the branch's washrooms. Sweet said the plan would allow washrooms to be accessible from the outside at the rear of the library even when the library is closed. The washrooms would be located at the east side of the building and would be accessible though the alley next to the Regent Theatre. Increase signage would also be put in place so residents and visitors know they are there. “The library already functions as a site of public washrooms in the downtown core,” she said. Sweet said the washrooms would be added to the rear of the building, housed within a small addi-

tion. Though there would be a rear entrance, Sweet said that entrance would be opened only when the library is closed and would be operated on a timed locking system. She said the bookstore area of the basement would also be renovated to allow for bigger and better washrooms. “The current washrooms in the library are located at the centre of the lower level. We really went with a location that would gain floor space and improve sight lines,” Sweet said. She said she doesn't know when the current washrooms were built, but at that time the lower level of the library wasn't used as much as it is now. “It really means that the two public washrooms, that are located off a very narrow hallway, are a hazard as the doors open into this narrow hallway and people are regularly walking through it,” she said. She said another concern is that the washrooms don't have enough space to contain a change table, which is especially of concern because the library has dramatically increased programs for young families in recent years. Sweet said the library board was seeking only approval to apply for the funding and wouldn't be seeking any municipal dollars for the project. She said the library had recently received a couple of bequests, one of which would be enough to cover the library's share of the cost for the project. She said the bequest had been slated for programming, but had been repurposed by the board. “The total budget for the

project is going to be approximately $90,000. The terms of the grant requires that council, as owners of the building, gives the library board permission to apply to this fund,” she said. She said ongoing costs to maintain the washrooms are already being covered by the library board and she didn't expect there to be a significant increase in those costs once the new washrooms are established. Sweet said the library has already been in contact with the municipality's heritage committee as well as the accessibility committee and planning department. Although all the details as far as events and when the washrooms would be available or managed had not yet been figured out, councillor Brian Marisett supported the the library's initiative. “You can't always figure these things out ahead of time entirely. Sometimes you need to work on a process as far as how it's managed to see how it works,” he said. Councillor Jamie Forrester acknowledged the need for more public washrooms in downtown Picton, but said the municipality should be looking to do something on a grander scale. “Maybe not necessarily in that location, but something close by that would allow it to be open all the time instead of just library hours and special events,” Forrester said. Sweet said if the municipality finds the washrooms need to be open more hours that can be negotiated if and when the washrooms are constructed.

Jazz festival enjoys best season yet Ticket sales, free shows both up AdAm BrAmBurger Staff writer

While improvisation has a deep-rooted tradition in jazz music, Prince Edward County Jazz Festival chair Brian Barlow isn’t about to let it spill over to planning. Again this past week, the festival organizers stuck to what they know and that’s putting on a festival that focuses on jazz music first and foremost. “In terms of tickets sold it was our best year yet,” said Barlow. “We’re also maintaining a large number of free events. All day Saturday or Sunday, you could see free jazz music all across the

county.” Barlow said he felt the festival reached another level this year with strong performances not just at the Regent Theatre, but also at venues throughout the county. He said the end product is the result of a dedicated group of volunteers who find ways to make the show work, even with the logistics of bringing in bigger acts from the United States to perform. According to Barlow, many people don’t think about logistics like the tax situation of the performers playing in another country, not to mention the normal accommodations like transportation, lodging, and support within the venues. “A lot of people went

above and beyond to make it happen,” he said. Barlow said once such complication arrived this year when legendary drummer Louis Hayes and his band were delayed travelling. Volunteers made connections in Toronto to help the band arrive and managed to get them to the theatre just in time to step on stage. “It’s like being on a ship in battle,” Barlow said. “Your sails get shot off, things, things get damaged, but everyone just keeps on going ahead.” It turns out, the performance given by Hayes’ crew was one of Barlow’s favourites of the week and a testimony for the festival.

Former foster parent sentenced to nine years, released pending appeal Accused maintains the incidents leading to his conviction on sex-related charges were fabricated by two victims AdAm BrAmBurgEr STAff wRITER

Despite receiving a nineyear prison sentence for the sexual abuse of two girls in his care as a foster parent, a 71-year-old county man is free on bail while appealing

the guilty verdict. The man, who cannot be named due to a publication ban protecting the identity of his accusers, was taken out of Picton court by police Friday morning after Justice Jennifer Blishen

handed down sentencing following a jury finding of guilt on six charges June 6 following a 15-day trial. The man was sentenced to three years concurrently for charges of sexual interference, invitation to sexual touching, and sexual assault in relation to incidents involving a nine-year-old girl over a one-year term, ranging from genital touching to oral sex. He was also sentenced to six years served concurrently on similar charges for incidents taking place over a five-year period involving a girl who was placed in his foster home at age 10, escalating to sexual intercourse several times a week. Blishen noted the Crown had called for a sentence of between 10-12 years of jail time, while the defence's submission called for sixto-seven years. She cited three separate cases dating from 2000 to 2011, each involving sexual abuse involving minors and listed

aggravating and mitigating factors that helped her in finding the sentence she chose to hand down. For this case, the judge listed five aggravating factors suggesting a lengthier sentence — the abuse of trust in the accused's position as a foster parent, the young age of the girls when the abuse began, the vulnerable nature of the youth having been removed from their own home, one having been abused previously by an adult, and the nature of the acts as Blishen point-

ed out one girl "became his sexual partner," believing their sexual relationship was normal. While not strictly aggravating, Blishen made a note that the accused took no responsibility for his actions and showed "no remorse or modicum of empathy," forcing the girls to testify twice and tying up their lives for a number of years with the case. Mitigating factors included the fact the man did not have a previous criminal record, nor did he have any history of alcohol or substance abuse. Blishen noted he had the support of his wife and adult children and did not use physical violence or intimidating behaviour in his actions. In the end, Blishen gave a grim summation of what she believed happened given the jury's findings, the pre-sentencing reports, and the victim's impact statements before sentencing. "Although (the girls) were fed, clothed and provided with adequate physical care, behind the scenes (the accused) engaged in a systematic process of sexually abusing these two little girls in every conceivable way over a total period of six years," she said. "Although there was no physical violence, intimidation or extortion used by (the accused) this was nevertheless an egregious breach of trust of two young, vulnerable victims who placed their trust and indeed their lives in the hands of a sexual predator."

Blishen said it would be difficult to predict the potential long-term harm of the accused's actions, but noted the victim's impact statements painted a grim picture. One of the girls wrote that she didn't think anything a judge or anybody could do would make her feel safe and that she has never trusted men and never been able to have a boyfriend. The other said she has difficulty being able to talk about what she has endeared with loved ones and she said to the accused "I hope every moment you have left of your life, you regret what you have done to us." The judge also read from the presentencing reports that the accused — who, during trial, claimed to not be able to perform some of the acts due to prostate surgery in 1995 — appears to blame the victims and maintain the acts are a product of fabrication. She said the parole officer authoring the report also suggested the man was "less than an ideal candidate for rehabilitation." Earlier, the man had indicated he intended to appeal his conviction. On Wednesday, officials with the Ontario Court of Appeal confirmed for the Gazette that he had been granted bail by the court Friday pending the appeal. In June, the jury also found the man not guilty in relation to accusations made by a third girl who had been placed in one of his foster homes.

Price not likely to compete in 2016

“I had no idea the response would have been this big,” he said. “I was blown away and I started feeling bad for the people waiting over an hour but I had absolutely no problem sharing my time the medal with them.” One of the people Price shared the medal with was Grace Vandevelde. The Kente school student said her parents went to school with Price and she was glad she stopped by to greet the Olympic Champion and check out his latest medal. “It's surprisingly heavy,” the Rednersville road resident said. It's also quite likely the last Olympic medal Price will win. After being drawn back into the boat in 2010, Price watched as the team developed before his eyes. “I came back in and I knew this was going to be a rebuild. I looked around and saw that there was talent in the boat. At this point in my career, I'm not going to the Games just to go. I'm going to win medals, that's the only reason,” Price said. The crew had some podium finishes in the races leading up the 2012 games and even set a world record in a World Cup heat and Price could see they were slowly getting better “mentally, physically and technically leading up to and at the Olympic Regatta.” In their sights in the finals was the Great Britain entry. The juggernaut Germans hadn't lost a finals race in over three years, so upsetting that crew would prove to be impossible but the Canadians knew Britain could be had. “Those guys were on home turf and the crowd was going berserk for them,” Price said. “For us to be able to beat them there, I was elated and happy for myself, my guys, my family and all Canadians.” It was mission accomplished for Price who admits he came back partly to satiate his own ego. “I had done it with a very experienced group, a group that I had grown up with and that was best in the world. We were expected to win and we did,” he said. “Now, I wanted to see how good I could be.” And if he could help lead the upstart crew which featured just two remaining members of the 2008 squad while adding to his Olympic total, even better. “It felt like this younger group had the talent and if I could offer them just a little bit of experience here and there and deliver my best race, that could get them up on the podium or higher on the podium,” he added. However, Price's coaxing in London was the quite likely the last of his Olympic career. “I don't see myself in Rio in 2016. It's time to move on and let some one else try,” Price said, adding he was hopeful he and his wife Robbi would be moving back from their Victoria home soon and to live in Ontario nearer to the couple's families. “I don't want to abandon the sport completely and there's a couple of kids have the talent to be coxswains but I would like to transition out of the sport and give back a little bit,” he said.

PRINCE EDWARD COUNTY

Looking back in the

Picton Gazette 80 years ago — 1932

■ An outbreak of infantile paralysis (polio) in Prince Edward County engaged the attention of physicians. Several cases had been reported in Cressy. The disease reportedly started with a headache and vomiting, followed by spinal pain and an inability to bend forward. Doctors had a serum available to battle the spread of the dreaded disease. ■ Ontario’s premier and several delegates from across the province were present for the official opening of a new stretch of highway from Actinolite to Perth, completing Hwy 7 and providing another route between Toronto and Ottawa. ■ The United Empire Loyalists Association was planning to have a booth for the first time at the Canadian National Exhibition. The booth was to feature photographs, books, and articles related to the history of the Loyalists in Canada.

50 years ago — 1962

■ Members of the Ameliasburgh Township council were hoping to meet with their colleagues in Hillier about rebuilding the Consecon dam, with each municipality paying 50 per cent of the estimated $1,000 task. ■ The Commonwealth Parliamentary Association brought delegates from around the world together in Picton to enjoy the local sights. Ernest Ockercke, the speaker of the house for East Nigeria was among those travelling the farthest to take part in the tour activities. ■ A bus load of 37 Prince Edward County Junior Farmers took a guided tour of Middlesex County, near London. Among the highlights on the tour were the grounds of the University of Western Ontario and Storybook Gardens.

30 years ago — 1982

■ Following a 40-year hiatus, the Ameliasburgh Fair was to reopen in October with a big parade through the village. Fair board president Bob Bell called the two-day fair a new venture, which organizers hoped would be successful. A wide variety of exhibits had already been planned for the event. ■ Mike Sheba led the Gazette on a tour of his own island — the property his castlelike home had been situated on since 1974 — which he separated from the mainly by digging a moat to distinguish the island from the mainland. ■ About 2,800 county residents were expected to see weekend mail delivery halt as Canada Post decided to stop rural delivery on Saturdays. The costcutting measure was expected to save $4 million in 1982 and help Canada Post counter its deficit. The move drew criticism from several residents and trade organizations, including the Canadian Federation of Agriculture.

10 years ago — 2002

■ Ameliasburgh councillor Bill Barber suggested it was time for the County to provide e-mail addresses for each councillor to try to reduce paper usage at Shire Hall. During the same meeting, Barber also advocated for the County to make high-speed communication a priority for economic development. ■ Several local naturalist groups called on council to seek more studies about bird fatality before supporting Vision Quest Windelectric Inc’s turbine plan.

Massassauga Point a changed place thanks to Friends Visitors who walk the groomed trails at Massassauga Point Conservation Area today, cannot begin to imagine the troubles this popular 65acre parkland suffered only two decades earlier. Purchased by the Prince Edward Region Conservation Authority (now Quinte Conservation) in 1971, the peninsula that juts into the Bay of Quinte, just southeast of Belleville, was suddenly witnessing a new breed of visitors. Massassauga Point always has been a popular destination. In the late 1800s, a huge, threestorey hotel was located here, and historic photos depict throngs of visitors, most of them arriving by either paddlewheel steamers or horse and buggy. As a conservation area in the 1970s, it joined a dozen others around Prince Edward County, sites where visitors could recreate and go for leisurely strolls. However, word soon spread during subsequent years that Massassauga, due to its remoteness, was also an ideal destination for party goers. Bonfires from noisy bush parties glared well into the night most holiday weekends. Broken beer bottles, strewn garbage and profanity replaced lively church picnics, ice cream, and family outings. No longer as remote as it once was, new waterfront home owners became concerned about the proximity of the unsavoury activity. They worried about fire in this bur oak savannah where flammable red cedars and tinder dry grass combined to create a disaster just waiting to happen. Local residents and former visitors and hikers were outraged. They were determined to take Massassauga Point back. In 1990, the Friends of Massassauga Point was formed to share some of the financial bur-

OUTDOOR RAMBLES TERRY SPRAGUE

den and maintenance responsibilities through fundraisers and volunteer cooperation. Just two years later, The Friends were recognized as “Conservationists of the Year” by the local conservation authority for their on-going efforts. Longtime member, Olive Root of Belleville, says, “Much of the revenue raised was used to increase police surveillance and it wasn’t long before the partying element got the message that they were not welcome at Massassauga.” In addition to funding the installation of gates, picnic tables, benches and signage, the ambitious group more recently installed a 14-metre high osprey platform and were also instrumental in efforts to restore the rare bur oak savannah. Further work by this group and the increased visitation by naturalists and biologists have revealed much about the conservation area’s special attributes. It is a bur oak savannah, quite simply, an ecosystem comprising two key layers – an overstorey of primarily opengrown oak trees, and a ground cover composed of grasses, sedges and wildflowers. But, it is in trouble. This rare habitat is

being choked out by invasive European buckthorn and red cedar. Some restoration work has been under way to correct that. During the restoration, bonsai type red cedars with trunks barely the size of a person’s arm, were found that were aged at more than 130 years! A few bur oaks on the property are 175 years old, while the shagbark hickory can claim 150 years. Alvar species like prairie smoke, early saxifrage, early buttercup, and Houstonia were discovered. It is probably the only spot in the Quinte area where the uncommon white trout lily actually out populates the more familiar yellow trout lily. There is a specimen of Deem’s oak, a hybrid between Chinquapin oak and bur oak. There is shoreline, alvars, historic foundations, and an old rock quarry, dating back to 1914. Gone, of course, are the night time cruises, the dancing and the merry-go-round of early days. In their places are benches, a picnic shelter, new signage, and a large rock and tree, bearing a plaque in memory of Joe Eberwein, a staunch supporter of the Friends’ efforts. The crown jewel though is the network of groomed hiking trails – four kilometres of them – that allow visitors to enjoy this conservation area the way it was meant to be enjoyed. They access an open alvar, the savannah, the shoreline, the old Hickory Nut Plains, the hotel site, the unique wildflowers and the occasional mysterious foundation long since surrendered to encroaching vegetation. It is perhaps the only conservation area in the Quinte region that has a modern garbage receptacle. Unlike garbage barrels that were indiscriminately used and had to be pulled out of all

other conservation areas several years ago, the modern receptacle at Massassauga does not get stuffed full of household garbage, and we can attribute this to Masssassauga’s users, who now respect and care for this special corner of Prince Edward County. We can also thank the Friends of Massassauga for their efforts in returning this conservation area to responsible users. Current president Brian Credico who lives just a stone’s throw from the conservation area, is the man behind the informative website which can be found at: www.fom.quinteconservation.ca . On it, you will find more about the conservation area’s special attributes, notes on the history of the area, a selection of photos, information on their projects, and a detailed map of the trail system. Visitors can find also find information about the area in a brochure holder at the parking lot. Secretary/treasurer Olive Root says that membership is only $10 and can be obtained from The Friends of Massassauga Point, Box 2016, Belleville, Ontario K8P 1P0, or e-mail: FriendsOfMassassauga@gmail.com . One of the ambitions of the Friends in this electronic age is encouraging all members, whether new or existing, to provide their e-mail address so the newsletter can now be sent electronically and more efficiently, allowing dollars to be directed to even more improvements in the conservation area.

County Youth Park property damaged by vandals overnight

County employees arrived for work Tuesday morning to find substantial damage done to the County Youth Park overnight. The workers reported to police that two young trees

were damaged, a downspout from an eavestrough was torn off the building, and vending machine was damaged some time in the night. Since its inception, the skate

park had been an area where youth have frowned upon seeing property defaced, even to the point of not having graffiti in the park like other area parks. Anyone with information

on the crime is asked to call the Prince Edward OPP at 613-4762151 or Crime Stoppers at 1800-222-8477. -Staff

Councillors wise to wait, rather than commit to project

SELDOM in life is anything free, even if it has been advertised as such and it seems like a good deal at the time it is presented to the consumer. At first glance, applications to the Community Infrastructure Improvement Fund appear to be offering free money to the tune of 50 per cent of spending on approved projects. This week, councillors decided that free money wasn’t worth taking if they didn’t know which strings were attached to it in terms of spending and in terms of divesting properties to free up money for projects. Though we can appreciate councillor Brian Marisett’s statement that most of the projects council was asked to consider are ones that are going to come back to the table at some point, likely for the full price tag — if not one inflated as is often the case when one waits on projects of this magnitude — at the end of the day, any direction to nominate a project for consideration would effectively commit the municipality to move forward on that project on a timeline it would not control. For a municipality that has shown a desperate need to rebuild its reserves, while financing major spending projects such as the Wellington recreation centre and Picton wastewater plant — both products of multi-level infrastructure spending — it doesn’t appear wise for the municipality to rush into more spending, particularly if it doesn’t have one pressing project and if it doesn’t know how it is going to pay for that spending. Also, since it is reasonable to presume those needs have been identified for some time, it is also reasonable to presume that staff has already worked them into its long-range plan, which includes finding ways to reduce duplication and eliminate debt. Also, there is potential that other funds will become available down the road when the County finds itself in a better position to commit, having already divested itself of surplus properties and examined all budget belt-tightening exercises. To us, it would appear that councillors have made the right decision in this regard, particularly following the tough budget sessions that have taken place during this term and the ever-rising costs that council cannot control, such as fuel, insurance, and charges for service dictated by outside agencies. Meanwhile, there may be a lingering sense of missed opportunity that had the municipality already determined where it was going to find the money without taking on debt financing, there may be a chance that a project like new Millennium Trail bridges, a seawall in Wellington, or repairs to the historic landmark Crystal Palace might be more easily within reach with external funds helping to pay some of the ticket. That’s a natural feeling. Given that sentiment, it would behoove staff and councillors to continue talking about drastic decisions, while involving the public throughout the process. If there are opportunities, now is the time to proceed. It will pay off the next time an intriguing deal falls into their laps.

Archives provide valuable resource for local historians

Part of the County of Prince Edward Public Library, The County of Prince Edward Archives is a valuable resource for those interested in any aspect of local history. The mandate of the Archives is to collect and preserve printed material having any relevance to the history of Prince Edward County. As such, Archives staff continually seek historical documents including journals, official papers, photographs and newspapers. One of the many assets of the Archives, is its collection of Gazette newspapers, the independent and locally owned paper that began publication as a weekly in 1836. Understandably, much county history can be found in the texts and images of this longstanding newspaper. The Archives is fortunate to have many years of the paper preserved on microfilm as well as paper copies. There are, however, gaps in the collection, specifically in editions from the 1970s. The Archives encourages anyone with copies of the Gazette from those years to contact them. The owners could, of course, keep the originals if they would like, but the Archives would like to preserve the information they contain through scanning. Additionally, the Archives would like to invite anyone with historical photos or documents that are relevant to the history of the County to bring the items in to have them scanned. Historical document preservation through scanning and digitizing is the best way to preserve paper documents and allow access to these from anywhere in the world through the Internet. The Archives was fortunate to receive a federal grant in 2010 from the Library Strategic Development Fund to purchase a database with web capability. As a result, to date over 4000 files have been converted to the database and these are available for viewing online from the library web site or directly at www.pecminisisinc.com “Regrettably, the grant will run out in October,” says Archives manager Krista Richardson, “but we are committed to continuing the work and will be fundraising to help in doing so.” One of the fundraising ideas in the works is a graveyard tour, the details of which are being developed. In addition to collecting and digitizing the acquisitions at the Archives, a great deal of work is dedicated to serving the public and researching inquiries.

“We have requests for genealogical information, as well as house and property history,” explains Richardson, “and many inquiries about locations such as Camp Picton, and events, even including sporting events from long ago.” Inquiries come from the area, but many are from people who live outside the region and the Archives is especially busy in the summer with tourists interested in learning about the area or of some long lost relative who once lived here. “We have had inquires sent to us from as far away as Iceland and New Zealand,” says Richardson. Genealogy is an increasingly popular interest. Frequently the Archives helps guide people searching for details to develop family trees. “Many people are not aware that they can also access the leading online genealogy resource at any branch of the library,” says Richardson, “not only at the Archives.” Ancestry.com’s library edition is available for free to anyone at any of the County of Prince Edward Public Library’s six branches. The library is offering a free Introduction to Ancestry Library Edition at the Consecon branch of the library on Saturday, Sept. 29 from 10:30 a.m. to noon. For more information please contact Liz at liz@peclibrary.org or call 613-476-5962 ext. 30. For additional information about the County of Prince Edward Archives or to book an appointment to speak with the Archives manager to discuss an inquiry, call 613-3992023 or e-mail archives@peclibrary.org The Archives are located adjacent to the Wellington branch of the library at 261 Main Street in Wellington.

Strength in community best way to address challenges

in response to: Looking for the meat and potatoes (Aug. 16, 2012): Yes, the world is full of sleepiness and denial when it comes to the daily crises in our world today, even though we are saturated with images of climate disasters, financial train wrecks, collapse of institutions, downfalls of titans etc - signs that collapse is in our face. It is human nature to believe it won't happen to us, that "they" will fix "it" in time. But there is no magic "they." Never has been, never will be. We do need to wake up.

However, when (and "if" for the doubters) crises directly affect us - be it financial, food, fuel or weather - who will we be surviving with? who will we be sharing with? supporting, and being supported by, in return? Our neighbours and our community, the people we live beside and near, will be the ones we will turn to, those same people we read about in our local papers where the strength and soul of our community is weekly demonstrated: raising amazing amounts of money for local causes, the emo-

tional support we give to each other (witness the surprise parade to raise Brenda McQuaid's spirits), community meals, the ongoing celebrations of the arts, creativity, and sports. Surviving within community is key to Transition Prince Edward County. TPEC organizes workshops, brings in speakers, to raise consciousness and share skills leading to resilience and sustainability in these difficult times. Fall events are now on our site www.transitionpec.ca and include the internationally renowned speaker Andrew Harvey

(Nov 5), who will speak passionately of the necessity to do something in your community, responding to what breaks your heart, as well as inner work. Both are important, but must be practised together. Prince Edward County has a long history of sticking together in times of crisis, and every time I open a local paper I am reassured of our strong community spirit. Roz Bound Co-chair Transition PEC

County will not seek infrastructure funds Councillors decide municipal cost for new projects too high Chad Ibbotson

Staff writer

With several project applications to the Community Infrastructure Improvement Fund (CIIF) to pick from at last week's committee-of-thewhole meeting, councillors chose none of the above. Although the CIIF would provide up to 50 per cent of project costs up to a maximum of $1 million, committee of the whole decided that the cost of the municipal share of the projects was too much. Staff suggested the municipality's contribution to the projects could come from the sale of surplus properties, but many councillors felt that money was better spent other ways such as paying down the County's current debt. With several big ticket projects — like Crystal Palace repairs (estimated at $570,000), Millennium Trail bridge repairs (estimated at $277,500), and Wellington Main Street Park seawall rehabilitation (estimated at $94,000) or replacement (estimated at $175,250) — on the list the committee decided against submitting any funding application. Several councillors found

it difficult to make a choice on what project to support without knowing in advance what properties might be sold to pay for the municipality's share. Among them was councillor Bev Campbell. “We're talking about our share ranging from $63,000 to $380,000,” she said. Campbell said in order to take advantage of the funding opportunity it appeared to her the municipality would have to go further into debt. “We have not identified a source of revenue other than the sale of properties, which are not identified as of yet. We don't know what they will be, whether we're prepared to sell that particular property or what it's going to generate,” she said. Councillor Terry Shortt shared the concern. “We're speculating here,” he said. Shortt said without knowing ahead of time what properties would be sold they would only be guessing when talking about what properties might be sold and how much the municipality would get in return. Shortt said if the municipality applied and was awarded the grant, but was unable to

secure its share of the funding, it would reflect poorly on the County. “I hate speculating and I wouldn't want to put any more pressure on the tax base and increase our debt load by not having those funds available,” he said. Mayor Peter Mertens also didn't support submitting applications to the CIIF at this time. He also didn't support the suggested municipal funding source in the sale of properties. “At this point we have a whole host of financial issues we're trying to deal with and have to deal with,” he said. “There are probably better places to use that money at this point such as, as councillor Shortt pointed out, to reduce some of our debt or replacing some of the priorities that we sought in the budget.” A report presented to the committee last week outlined each of the proposed projects. The most expensive, the Crystal Palace repair, would include replacing windows, siding, eaves trough, new exhaust fans and louvers and repairs to the foundation in the centre of the building.

PICTON PUBLIC STOR-ALL

Police, firefighters team up for blood campaign Sirens For Life aims to promote the importance of donating AdAm BrAmBurger

StAFF writEr

Chances are good that police officers and firefighters have likely seen more blood shed than most simply because their jobs put them at the scene of accidents as first responders. Once again this month, Canadian Blood Services is pulling together those community workers to do another turn at lifesaving by getting those people out to give blood to help supply emergency rooms like those at local hospitals through its Sirens For Life campaign. Next Monday, firefighters and OPP officers in the county will have their chance to take part in the campaign by registering to take part in a regular blood donor clinic at the Prince Edward Community Centre in Picton. If they have time to give, it is hoped others will follow suit. "It's quick and it's so easy," said Const. Kim Guthrie, the community services officer for the Prince Edward OPP detachment. "If I needed blood, I'd hope people would donate for me." Guthrie said people just need to think of recent incidents where emergency response was required and

think about their impact on the blood supply. "Just think of the kid who was hit by a power boat this week in North Bay, how much blood would he have needed?" she said. According to Canadian Blood Services, it can take 50 units of blood to save a person in a car accident, which is equivalent to the life-saving gifts of 50 donors. Leukemia patients can need eight units per week also. Typically, clinics in Picton bring in about 144 units. "It's like paying it forward," said Canadian Blood Services community development co-ordinator Linda Mather. "This campaign is a type of rallying cry for emer-

gency services workers. They know the need for blood doesn't take a summer vacation, in fact, they know it more than most." The clinic is being seen as a final effort heading into the Labour Day weekend to ensure local police and fire bring in 100 units of blood as part of the campaign, which started July 1. Participants in the clinic or other blood donor clinics can register in support of Sirens For Life. Fire chief Scott Manlow said it has been an easy effort for his department to support. "Quite a few of our guys are participating on their own already. They already donate. All they have to do

An inspirational poem by an unknown author...

When things go wrong as they sometimes will, When the road you're trudging seems all uphill, When funds are low and the debts are high, And you want to smile, but you have to sigh. When care is pressing you down a bit. Rest, if you must, but don't you quit. Life is queer with its twists and turns As every one of us sometimes learns. And many a failure turns about When he might have won had he stuck it out: Don't give up though the pace seems slow You may succeed with another blow. Success is failure turned inside out The silver tint of the clouds of doubt. And you never can tell how close you are. It may be near when it seems so far:

Helmet fitting clinic an important part of bicycle rodeo at Hillier Fun Day Saturday Some children walk through obstacle course on foot just to learn more about rules of the road and signals they can use AdAm BrAmBurger

Staff writer

While the order of the day at the Jack Taylor Park Saturday was lighthearted amusement, there was a serious message to be taken. Somewhere between the dunk tank and the watermelon eating contest, the OPP and the Quinte Chapter of the Brain Injury Associa-

tion of Ontario were hosting a bike rodeo and helmet fitting seminar. Josh Furlonger was handing out helmets as a representative of the Brain Injury Association to anyone who needs them. He said one of the saddest things he sees in his job is parents who will fit their children, but not consider the importance of the item themselves.

Thank you Belleville, Quinte “The Country” & Eastern Ontario We now offer one of the LARGEST FACTORY DIRECT COLLECTIONS OF HANDCRAFTED CANADIAN MENNONITE FURNITURE in EASTERN ONTARIO Heirloom pieces are crafted from wormy & clear maple, flat & 1/4 cut oak, rustic & rough sawn pine & cherry.

SOFAS

lighter more aerodynamic designs work road cycling, but harder, heavier helmets which extend further down the neck offer more protection for BMX or cyclecross types of activities. Furlonger also said an important part in preventing head injuries is ensuring that a bicycle helmet fits properly as it was designed to do. “The biggest thing we’ve been telling them is the 2-4-1 model,” he said. “Two fingers from your helmet to your eyebrows, four fingers making a V around the bot-

tom of your ears, and one finger under the strap beneath your chin.” Those measurements should help with strap adjustments to ensure the helmet fits snug on the head to prevent it from moving, offering protection from impacts on all sides. Furlonger also said in running the clinic Saturday, they came across a rider who had a cracked helmet and they offered him a new one to take home. He said some cracks and chips — even those to the paint — can impact upon the structure of the helmet, so he encouraged riders to regularly check their helmets for cracks, look for worn or frayed straps, and ensure the inner foam shell remains firm. When in doubt about a

helmet’s condition, riders could check with an expert or err on the side of caution. Meanwhile, OPP Const. Kim Guthrie and a pair of auxiliary officers were taking youth through an obstacle course and teaching them lessons about road signs and about the hand signs they should use when taking to the streets. Guthrie said she didn’t see a lot of children who brought their bikes to the fun day, but she still took the time to teach on the obstacle course. She said for many of the young people, she simply encouraged them to walk through the course and mimic the actions they would take if they were on a bicycle. Guthrie said she was pleased with their willingness to participate.

“We’ll have a mom and dad come to make sure that their kids are safely outfitted, then they’ll ride off without a helmet on,” he said, adding the potential is there for anyone riding a bike to suffer a life-changing brain injury. Furlonger said that on Saturday, he didn’t have to give out a lot of helmets, but was pleased to provide information to a number of families about the proper fit for bicycle helmets and the different features they should look for when choosing different helmet styles —

A lot of hard work paid off for the Friends of East Lake (FOEL) last week as the group celebrated the announcement of a $69,100 Ontario Trillium Foundation Grant that will go toward a shoreland management plan for East Lake. Prince Edward-Hastings MPP Todd Smith along with Ontario Trillium Foundation representative Sandie Sidsworth presented the grant on Aug. 15 during a short ceremony at Cherry Valley Lion's Memorial Park. The grant makes the shoreland management plan possible. The two-year study aims to guide external factors that could affect the long-term health of East Lake and mitigate them. The plan will include proposed policies for the municipality's official plan and will recommend stewardship programs. Quinte Conservation and the municipality will collaborate to carry out the project with the municipality offering knowledge of planning to incorporate recommendations while Quinte Conservation will provide their scientific expertise. Cottage Advisors of Canada has agree to match the funds to conduct the study as a result of a negotiated settlement with FOEL following a Ontario Municipal Board challenge. FOEL president Linda Cole said the grant was made possible by the hard work of the group's membership â&#x20AC;&#x201D; especially FOEL vice president Carolyn Barton. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It's wonderful. I'm really proud of the membership and the county and Quinte Conservation for teaming with us to do this,â&#x20AC;? she said. She said it was exciting,

but the event marked only the beginning of a two-tothree-year process of public input and planning. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It's kind of like starting your first season in the NHL. You're not quite sure how it's going to come out,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We're really happy about everything that's come up to this.â&#x20AC;? Cole said the best part about conducting the plan is that it can serve as a template for other lakes in the area with Quinte Conservation applying knowledge gained at East Lake to similar lakes across Hastings and Prince Edward counties. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They can use our study here for their lakes, so it's a win win,â&#x20AC;? she said. Less than a month from now the study will kick off with an initial public meeting. The steering committee, comprising members of FOEL, Quinte Conservation, and the municipality, has set a Sept. 16 date at Athol Town Hall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We'll put together some

stakeholder groups being the businesses round the lake, the farmers and Ducks Unlimited and various groups like that,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That makes them involved in the whole process. It's not just us that's doing it, it'll be the whole social fabric around the lake.â&#x20AC;? Smith applauded the group for their work and said it was great to see a project that will benefit the community by preserving the local ecosystem. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The one thing that strikes me about Prince Edward County is the community involvement when it comes to protecting your lakes, your water sources and the land in general,â&#x20AC;? he said. He said groups like FOEL and the Friends of Wellers Bay do a lot of good work without added cost to municipalities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you're a municipal politician or you're a provincial politician like I am, it's great to have people who want to do things for

free because it's very expensive to provide these services,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I commend the Friends of East Lake.â&#x20AC;? Sidsworth said the Trillium Foundation looks to contribute to projects that have the potential to have a greater impact than the initial project outline. She said the possibility that East Lake's shoreland management plan could serve as a template for other lakes was an example of that. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When we put forward these grants for review, that's the connection we want to see,â&#x20AC;? said Sidsworth. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of the important pieces is that it was a grassroots process coming up so it's the local people impacted by local issues bringing forward something that has a broader connection and a broader meaning for the rest of the county.â&#x20AC;? FOEL will hold their annual general meeting tonight at 7 p.m. in Athol Town Hall. All are welcome to attend.

Municipality calls for broader regulations FotoLight submission requests more local controls on green energy projects Chad Ibbotson

Staff writer

Committee of the whole has approved the submission of the municipal consultation comments to the Ministry of the Environment regarding the 10 MW solar project proposed for Chuckery Hill Road in Picton. Again councillors are seeking more provincial regulations for green energy projects. The Class 3 solar project proposed by FotoLight LP Co./SkyPower received a contract from Ontario Power Authority under the feed in tariff (FIT) program and as per the Green Energy Act the municipality submitted its list of matters to be addressed. Several of those matters were the same, or similar to, comments the municipality has made in the past regarding industrial wind projects. Comments included: A requirement for a predevelopment agreement between the proponent and the municipality for the recovery of municipal costs associated with project review, approval, construction, operation and decommissioning; a requirement for a traffic management plan to be developed by the proponent with the engineering, development and works department; and a requirement for an agreement between the municipality and the proponent for the identification of haul roads. In total 12 separate comments and suggestions were made. Items nine through 12 call for the province to develop new regulations for green energy projects. These include: A request for the province to develop a regulation requiring proponents to make an annual payment to the municipality in the amount of $7,500 per megawatt plus profit sharing based on a four per cent output plus annual cost of living, exclusive taxes and recovery of costs; a request for the province to require a decommissioning plan for green projects; a request that the province create a rehabilitation security fund to recover decommissioning costs in the event of a delinquent owner; and that the province require identification and mitigation measures to address the impact on the municipality's economy. While the municipality has made these requests in other green project submis-

sions, they have yet to receive any feedback. Engineering, development and works commissioner Robert McAuley acknowledged at last week's meeting that the province has yet to respond. “We've had no response from the province on these comments,” he said. He said he didn't expect that to change this time around, but said the comments will be reinforced when the approval is posted on the province's environmental registry website. “The approval will be posted on the EBR and we'll reiterate those com-

ments. Frankly, I don't expect anything to come up. The approval with go through regardless, but we're on the record as having raised the issues,” McAuley said. The project will include the installation of approximately 30,000 to 100,000 ground-mounted solar panels on fixed racking system attached to steel supports. There will also be about 17 inverter units, a doublewalled transformer substation and two main access roads from Chuckery Hill Road along with interior gravel access roads for maintenance. The installation will be

walled inside a 2.7 metre high chain link fence, a locked gated entrance and barbed wire on top. Security lights near the entrance and a communications towner will be installed with site restoration and reclamation planned for as much of the project as possible. A building commencement date in the spring of 2013 is expected with the construction anticipated to create up to 100 local jobs for the duration a report submitted to committee of the whole says. Construction is expected to last six to nine months.

New film features boat racing’s first couple Lyons contributes research about Wilsons in Picton AdAm BrAmBurger

Staff writer

Another two legends from Picton’s powerboating past are about to be reintroduced to broader Canadian audiences this week. In Gravenhurst, tonight, the docudrama film Harold & Lorna, World Water Speed Champions will premiere as part of a fundraiser for Habitat for Humanity. “It’s expected to be one of the hottest tickets in the Muskokas this summer,” said local powerboat racing enthusiast and historian John Lyons, who has been invited to attend the event. The story features the tale of Harold and Lorna Wilson, the driver and engineer team behind the Miss Canada boats. The couple raced Canada’s first world champion boat in 1933 in the 225 class — a smaller class — then worked their way up to entering the first Canadian challenger for the Harmsworth Trophy races eventually won by Bob Hayward and the Miss Supertest team. “They were the first Canadian world champion powerboat racers,” said Lyons. “They were also the first male-female and husband-and-wife team.” Lyons actually played a large part in providing research for the film from the Wilsons’ racing years in the Picton area between 1936 and 1951. He heard Wilson’s son Harry was looking to make the film about his parents and saw it as a labour of love,

much like his own quest to have Miss Supertest recognized on a Canada Post stamp last year. “There was an overlap in my research between Miss Canada and Miss Supertest — the Wilsons sold the last Miss Canada to the Thompsons and it became the first Miss Supertest — so I offered it to him for free,” he said. As Lyons learned more about the project, he learned about research deadlines and found himself compelled by the story. Eventually, he turned over a 300-page binder of newspaper clippings about the Wilsons in Picton as well as some other artifacts from his collection. “It represents about a whole year’s work,” he said. “They were thrilled to get all of this, they hadn’t seen any of it before.” Other highlights of the Wilsons’ time in Picton included their participation in the first sanctioned international race here in 1937, and a successful world speed record attempt in in 1949. Lyons said the Wilsons were also good ambassadors

for the community, always competing under the Prince Edward Yacht Club flag. Having seen a rough cut of the film, Lyons said it plays up the couple’s romance with powerboating as a backdrop, but he added there was also discussion about a historical documentary being released to accompany the project. Lyons said ultimately he hopes the films may make it to the Regent Theatre’s Cinefest screen and DVDS are slated to be ready by this Christmas. In a press release from Muskoka Film Works, the movie’s director W.A. Plumstead said it is time Canadians are reacquainted with these heres. “Twenty years of putting Canada on the map of international boat racing made them darlings of the American press and household names in their native country,” he said. “Six decades later, Harold and Lorna Wilson have nearly disappeared from the map of Canadian sports heroes. It’s time to redress this lapse.”

Hydrangeas that bloom on new wood are the panicle and the smooth hydrangeas, hydrangea paniculata and hydrangea arborescens. These plants should be pruned in late winter or early spring. Included in this category is the reblooming Endless Summer which can be pruned all summer long and will continue to produce new blooms. If you are uncertain of which types you have in your garden, pay attention to the time that they bloom. The bigleaf and oakleaf plants, which include lacecaps and mopheads, bloom in the early summer and then peter out by mid-summer. The panicle and smooth hydrangeas bloom a bit later and hold their bloom colour into the fall. These include “Annabelle”, “Peegee”, “Grandiflora”, “Limelight” and others. Hold a blossom and then look down its stem. If it is green all the way to the ground, you have a panicle or a smooth hydrangea that blooms on new wood and if it is brown further down the stem, you have a bigleaf or oakleaf that blooms on old wood. Another word about pruning in general; pruning encourages growth and late summer growth will not have sufficient time to harden off making it susceptible to winter kill. Continue to deadhead annuals and perennials and remove parts of plants that are dead, diseased, damaged or dangerous. But, generally speaking, you can clean up your pruners and put them away

Harvest dishes out healthy helpings of comedic timing and colourful banter Festival Players stages funny take on farm in transition AdAm BrAmBurger

Staff writer

emotionAl twists The Duncansons, Charlotte (Jenny Parsons) and Allan (Martin Julien) go through a number of highs and lows while renting out their family farmhouse in Ken Cameron’s Harvest on stage at Rosehall Run. (Michael Grills/Festival Players)

What I would like to know is... ❑ ❑ ❑ ❑ ❑ ❑ ❑ ❑ ❑ ❑ ❑

Succession planning has always been a major consideration for farmers. In today’s world, with an aging population, tough times, and a world made more accessible by modern technology, it can be a very scary proposition. Playwright Ken Cameron has taken that common dilemma and attempted to address it in a comedic way through his piece Harvest, which is the finale for the Festival Players of Prince Edward County’s sixth season. Staged under a tent at Rosehall Run Vineyards, the storytelling starts abruptly, yet effectively with an aging couple played by Martin Julien and Jenny Parsons just wandering in and starting to tell their tale.

Are you thinking about college? Do you have questions? Ask away – Loyalist has the answers.

Can I afford it? I haven’t been in school for years – how will I cope? Can I receive credit for my work experience?

Of course, like a stereotypical married couple, they can’t just tell the story without bickering about the how and why leading up to their current predicament. The banter is endearing and charming, easily provoking the first laughs of many over the duration. The Allan and Charlotte Duncanson characters are clearly at a crossroads in their lives as their son just doesn’t have time to continue the family farm that has been in the family’s possession for generations — well, at least according to Allan, whose wife reminds him his father bought the centuries-old property from a cousin he’d never even met. After reasoning it out, the Duncansons decide they’re going to sell the farm and find a condo in the city, much to the chagrin of Allan, who seems to be the type of farmer who would sooner die on his land than give it up. In hard times, the couple only receives one offer for the farm, from their stubborn, yet dedicated immigrant neighbour and it’s a lowball offer for the land and not the house. Suddenly, the Duncansons are forced to be landlords for the first time in their lives, and they show a real discomfort with the whole situation. Surely enough, the Duncansons struggle to adapt to city life and struggle even more when the tenant they barely screened begins a har-

vest of his own that very well could ruin the property that is their retirement nest egg. With those plot details in place, it all boils down to simple storytelling — after all, director Sarah Phillips and her crew have elected to give the couple very few sets and props to interact with — the wall of a house with a door and a few tools and toys here and there. They also don’t have other actors to play off of. Julien and Parsons seamlessly trade off with one another each portraying their neighbours, their friends, their insurance agent, and the renter who throws a wrench into it all. Though the idea itself would appear choppy because of the overlap in characters and the many switches between roles, it works nicely because of the timing and character development the two veterans build off one another. Through it all, the Duncansons somehow persevere, and though changed, they find a way to carry on as Cameron leaves audiences a glimmer of hope amid the comedic troubles. Time is running out to see Harvest as the runs five more times, tonight at 6:30 p.m. and tomorrow and Saturday at 1:30 and 6:30 p.m. Tickets ($29.99, $25.75 for seniors, and $10 for youth under 25) are available at the door, online at countytix.ca, or by phone at 613-471-1991.

Dukes struggle to create offence in preseason opener Teams show little intensity as Cobourg skates to 4-1 win Tuesday Jason Parks

Staff writer

When it comes to junior hockey, the preseason is about finding out who can play and who can't. For the Wellington Dukes, that potential list is short on the former and long on the latter after a hohum 4-1 loss to the Cobourg Cougars on Tuesday night. The local Junior A squad opened up the exhibition portion of its schedule with a home loss in which it was pushed around, showed relatively little finish around the net and lacked in physicality. The good news for local hockey fans is that the team can only improve from here on out. While Wellington was outshot handily, Wellington Dukes coach and general manager Marty Abrams believed his team carried the balance of the play Tuesday night. “I thought our puck possession time was good and we held the play a lot but I was more disappointed with lack of physical play by both teams really but I'm more worried about the Wellington Dukes than the other team,” Abrams, who watched the game from the press box, said. “We didn't show a lot of emotion,” he added. Wellington took the lead early when Abbott Girduckis gained the puck in

the corner and bullied his way to the Cobourg net. Last year's Empire Junior C rookie of the year didn't get much on his shot but the puck had enough mustard behind it to slip underneath Cougar starter Joe Keyser's pad for a 1-0 lead at 11:37 Cobourg responded with a bit a soft goal on Duke started Marc Williams as Kyle Fink slipped one home exactly two minutes after the Girduckis goal. After a scoreless second

in which the teams were tied with 11 shots and likely even when it came to scoring chances, the Cougars put the game to bed in the final frame. Theo Lewis tipped home Nick Clark's point blast just 56 seconds into the third period to put Cobourg up 2-1. Not finished, the Cougar squad added to the lead at 5:44 when former Quinte Red Devil Ryan O'Grady overmatched Andrew Masters (who came on to relieve Williams at the halfway point) with a blast

from the top of the circle. Behind 3-1, Wellington managed a few scoring chances down the stretch but were unable to build any sustained pressure. Lewis added his second of the frame into a yawning cage with 14 seconds left. In spite of taking the game's last six minor penalties, Cobourg outshot Wellington 39-26. Abrams agreed the power play never seemed to get set and produce the quality scoring chances six straight man-advantage

opportunities should provide a Junior A club. A lack of intensity and hunger around the Cougar cage made sure the Cobourg defence had an easy night. “We didn't really generate enough offence to even be in the game,” Abrams said. In terms of netminding, with 16-year-old Hayden Lavinge signed, the debuts of Williams and Masters were solid. Abrams said Dukes staff is high on both goalies and either could have a chance

to make the team, “I thought Williams played well but I'm sure he would like to have the one goal back,” he added. In terms of the defence, Abrams thought 16-yearold Brody Morris and former Napanee Raider Nolan Powers had solid if not spectacular outings. “I was happy with the back end, I'm more concerned about the lack of offence from our forwards,” he said. Wellington looks to get the offence rolling this weekend with a home-andhome series with the Kingston Voyageurs. With it being Kingston's first game of the preseason on Friday, Abrams will likely accommodate the Vees and dress a mostly rookie line up on Friday at home. The Dukes repay the Kingston visit with a trip to the Invista Centre on Sunday for a 3 p.m. Puck drop. Round the 'Roc: Jackson Howe and Cole Bolton were the only 2011-2012 regulars dressed Tuesday night...Three players were whistled for warm-up violations including prospective Dukes defencemen Mitch MacLean and Zach Bishop, meaning Wellington was down to four blueliners for the first 10 minutes of the game...It appears Curtis Hodgins didn't leave his play book in Whitby. The former Fury bench boss and his successful defence-first approach made it safely to the Cobourg Community Centre over the summer and the transformation from the previous high-flying Cougar style looks to be close to being complete.

Defending-champion Rockies stave off playoff elimination in dramatic fashion Whitepine awaits series winner Jason Parks

Staff writer

Just when it looks like the players in the Prince Edward County Men's Fastball Association can't possibly top themselves, a pair of ball clubs get together and produce a classic softball game that will be remembered for quite some time. Game 2 of the 2012 PECMFA semifinals produced an outstanding affair between the Terra Vista Rockies and the Roblin Family Pluming Copperheads Tuesday night. In the bottom of the 10th inning with the game tied 1-1

and their backs to the wall, the back-to-back champion Rockies kept their three-peat hopes alive in dramatic fashion. Needing a win to stave off elimination and knot their series at 1-1, Rockies catcher Ben Struthers strode to the plate and drove a deep line drive to the gap to cash Chris Terpstra who was at second base as part the international tie break rules. It should be no surprise two of the league's leading pitchers helped produce a beautiful ball game. Dale Dowdell went the distance for the Rockies, picking up the win while southpaw Wil Claus was hit with the loss. The Copperheads took the lead in the fourth inning when David Moore hit a sin-

The Rockies got back to even in the late going when venerable veteran Pete Williams cracked a triple and came in to score on a Trevor Jones single. In Game 1 of the series on Thursday, the Copperheads roughed up the Rockies 5-0. Claus had 13 punch outs in the win. In the other semifinal series, Whitepine Watershed dispatched Danford Contracting in straight games, winning 5-4 and 11-7, respectively. Game 3 of the RockiesCopperheads series goes tonight at the Prince Edward Community Centre. The first pitch is at 7:30 p.m.

Many players have chance to prove themselves as Pirates split exhibitions VanVlack, 16-year-old goaltenders impress in early stages of camp Chad ibbotson

Staff writer

With many prospects hitting the ice for the first time in a junior hockey uniform, it was a chance for skaters in the Picton Pirates' first two exhibition games of the season to make the most of an opportunity. The club dressed two young, significantly different lineups over the weekend — a 4–2 win over the Napanee Raiders on Friday and a 3–2 loss to the Campbellford Rebels on Saturday — in Picton's annual rookie games at RCAF Arena in Trenton. Coach and general manager Ryan Woodward said he was proud of the way the Pirates' hopefuls competed during the weekend's games. “We dressed two very young lineups with a lot of players playing their first junior game. The players played hard both nights and there were quite a few impressive performances,” he said. “Overall, the weekend served its purpose and we were able to see what guys are able to do.” Woodward said Nolan Van Vlack again showed that he is a capable body and had a noteworthy performance over the weekend. “His experience last year with our team really showed. He looks like he's taken a step forward this year — strong, confident and keeping the game really simple, but also understanding that it's important for him to perform,” he said. Additionally, goaltenders

Matt Loveys and Josh Lasher had a strong showing. “There are a lot of options right now and we're looking forward to continuing this process this week,” said Woodward. While some players skated in both games, the forward group was largely different between the games on Friday and Saturday. “We gave a lot of players the opportunity to compete and get their feet wet at this level. We were happy with the way everybody played,” Woodward said. “Some young guys showed a lot of potential and some of the guys who have a little bit of junior experience looked confident out there and looked like they're ready to take the next step.” Woodward said chemistry is hard to come by in these types of exhibition games, but he liked how the hopefuls competed hard and kept things simple. “We play a pretty simplified system in terms of the forecheck and defensive zone coverage. We wanted to see a little bit of structure out there, we didn't want to see them go out and skate around, we wanted to see if they could adjust on the fly,” he said. “It was a challenge for some of the young kids just getting into their first junior game, but overall the players played really hard and that's what I wanted to see.” For a club trying to cut down quickly before opening night, Woodward said the games were essential in

evaluating players' performances in a game scenario. He said the players were informed that this was their opportunity to impress and to make tough decisions even tougher for management. “They need to make the most of their opportunity. For some it might be their first and last and for others, if

they play well, they'll have an opportunity to advance in our training camp,” he said. He said the club won't string along players and will be cutting down as fast as possible. Woodward said it's tough to gauge how many players the club will have by the end of the week as players will be coming and going throughout that time. “We'll give everybody a look and from there we'll make decisions on guys and

try to keep the best 20–30 players around in camp long-term,” he said. The club has already released some players since those games and will be making decisions through the week. “We want everybody to have an opportunity to join other junior camps. We don't want to hold players back and have them miss out on a chance to sign somewhere else,” Woodward said. “It's

tough. It's kind of an accelerated way of running a camp, but it's serving its purpose.” The Pirates' next exhibition game will be Saturday Aug. 25 at Essroc Arena in Wellington against the Clarington Eagles of the Central Ontario Junior C Hockey League. Woodward said both teams will be dressing young lineups and urged residents to come check out the next generation of Picton Pirates.

County clubs reach Quinte Baseball League final in five different divisions

Three Lynx clubs finish atop regional baseball standings Jason Parks

Staff writer

Another baseball season has come and gone and it was another standout year for the teams of the Prince Edward County Minor Baseball Association. County based teams in the rookie, mosquito, peewee, bantam and midget age levels either made finals appearances or won their Quinte Baseball Association league title outright in 2012 and this success is just a continuation of the pattern of success that's being forged by local minor baseball players. The Rookie State Farm Lynx as well as the Bantam Kingfisher Financial Lynx and the Midget Kingfisher Financial Lynx all reigned

supreme in the regional house league that ranges from Brighton to Kingston while the Mosquito Bean Counter Café Grinders and the Peewee Wellington Lions Club Lynx came up just one game short in their respective divisions. Matt Ronan of PECMBA said that for the last half decade or so, county teams have been making plenty of noise in the Quinte Baseball Association. “For the last five years, county baseball teams have done very well and have been dominant and that's at all age levels,” Ronan said. And for most age levels, there have been multiple teams from Prince Edward County. “We've tried to divide the players evenly and, in

ciation at the peewee, bantam and midget age level. About 40 per cent of the makeup of those three travel squads originate from the south side of the Norris Whitney Bridge. “The resurgence of rep system means the house league kids are no longer in the shadows and they get a chance to play and develop better,” Ronan said. And having a a first rate facility in the Field of Dreams doesn't hurt. “The county is now known for the quality of its players and the quality of its diamonds,” Ronan added. “Visiting teams from Kingston and other places have been highly complimentary of our ball park.”

most cases, all the teams have done very well,” Ronan said. “In fact, when one county team plays another, it's usually some of the best baseball you are going to see.” Ronan believes a lot of this success is due to the volunteer coaches and the upper crust of the PECMBA membership moving on to rep baseball. “We really stress development and from the early stages, we have the kids warming the same way, doing the same drills, etc.” he said. Those skills ingrained on young baseballers have translated into top notch talent moving on to the Quinte Royals all-star teams that play in the Eastern Ontario Baseball Asso-

ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 Aries, balance and harmony will reign supreme this week. If there is something you have been meaning to change, now is the time to get it done. TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 Intentions can be lost when communication is not effective, Taurus. So don't expect someone to understand simply by your actions alone. Explain yourself along the way. GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 Gemini, sometimes you give off the impression that everything is going well, even when it is not. Hiding your emotions works sometimes, but this week find another strategy. CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 Cancer, most of the time you seem slow and steady. But every once in a while you show some passion that others may not expect from you. These sudden bursts are human. LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 Leo, you can't change the path the stars have set in your place even if you want to. It's best to simply accept the cards and make the most of them. VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 Virgo, speak up if you are not satisfied with your relationship. Now is the time to set things straight and make your voice heard. The other person will be receptive.

LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 Libra, you are ready to change careers or travel for a change of pace. This could be the ideal time to make your move because there isn't anything pressing going on. SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22 Scorpio, your surroundings may try your patience this week. Rise above any potential confrontations, and you will come out looking and feeling better because of it. SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 You may be misunderstood all day, but that won't put a damper on your good mood, Sagittarius. Let others think what they want to think and simply carry on. CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20 Capricorn, a new person in your life will become a close friend for a long time. This person will have the qualities you need the most right now, and friendship will be easy. AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 You're feeling like it's time to take matters into your own hands, Aquarius. Don't put off your happiness any longer. It's too important to push aside. PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20 This is the perfect time to address the questions that have been on your mind, Pisces. If you've been fretting over something, work it out.

Thanks to Pres. Ted Taylor and Comrade Ruth Richards for ensuring everything was in order. Mike Slatter, Royal Canadian Legion Br 78 Service Officer Community Care Service Coordinator

Dear Prince Edward County Community, family, friends and the Prince Edward Auto Club: I would just like to thank you ALL from the bottom of my heart. I was just down in the dumps from all the bad news I had been getting lately. But when I saw and heard you all “hootin’ and howlin’” there are just no words to describe how I felt! I was just amazed at all the people that were there just to support, love and help me through this. I was overwhelmed at all of it. I wouldn’t have cared if only $1 was raised, just to see you all, the love and support was just more than I ever could of imagined. Although, the money is coming in handy with all the traveling, medicine and other expenses. So thank you all, I couldn’t have gotten this treatment or other treatments without all of you. So thank you for helping me fight. Thank you for being in my corner. My boys and I and the rest of my family thank you and are forever grateful to you all. Love, Brenda McQuaid xo

MEMORIAMS

CARTER- In memory of Randall, who passed away August 25, 2011. No farewell words were spoken No time to say good bye You were gone before we knew it And only God knows why. Your suffering is over, And may you rest in peace with God. Always missed and remembered by brother-in-law Lloyd Hineman. CARTER- In sad and loving memory of a dear Uncle, Randall, who passed away so suddenly August 25, 2011. Gone is the face we loved so dear Silent is the voice we loved to hear Too far away for sight or speech Sweet to remember him who once was here. And who, though absent is just as dear. Sadly missed by nephew Michael and family.

CARTER - Randall

In loving memory of a dear husband, who passed away August 25, 2011. It’s been a year that’s come and gone But little did you know, you weren’t coming home You went to sleep, you suffered so I sat by your side, and watched you go. You couldn’t respond, all you could was hear When I told you I loved you in your ear. You hardly complained, you worked hard all your life And I was so proud to be your wife. You were always there with a helping hand Everyone knew you were a good man. When we said our vows til death do us part Then God came and took your hand And my whole life fell apart. But as I look back it makes me glad That we shared the precious years we had So one sweet day in Heaven above We will meet and confirm our love Rest In Peace Love and miss you terribly Your wife Jeanne ***********

DEATH

CARTER - Randall

In loving memory of a dear father, who left us August 25, 2011. It’s so strange that those in need And those we love the best Are just the ones God called away And took them home to rest. But every time I think of Dad I seem to hear God say Have faith and trust my promise You’ll meet again someday. Dad you’re gone but not forgotten And, as dawns another year All the lonely hours of thinking Thoughts of you are always near. Some think the wound is healed But little do they know the sorrow That lies in the heart concealed. So, if you have a father Cherish him with respect and care You’ll never know the heartache Till you see his vacant chair. Love and miss you Dad, Son Randy Jr. and daughter-in-law Debbie ***********

CARTER - Randall

In loving memory of a precious poppy who went to Heaven August 25, 2011. When we go to your house Poppy and find Nana sometimes alone We’re just too little to understand Why Jesus call you home. We know you’re watching above us In the beautiful Heaven above, We know the angels are with you And we’re sending our precious love. Love and miss you so much Poppy Payton & Levi

Ramona Anne Pallagi (nee Wannamaker)

August 24, 1935 – April 16, 2012 At the young age of 76, Ramona passed away at Misercordia Hospital in Edmonton, Alberta. She underwent a successful mastectomy but never returned home. Eight weeks later she succumbed to a bowel infection, blood poisoning and cardiac failure. Ramona leaves behind her three adult children: Imre James Pallagi of Wilkie, Sakatchewan; Ilona Anne Kathleen Pallagi of McBride, British Columbia; and Sandor Gyula Wilfred Pallagi of Banff, Alberta. Also, another son, Janos Gabor Pallagi, who was adopted away at birth and remains unfound. She is predeceased by her youngest daughter, Christine Eva Ramona Pallagi who passed away in 2002. She also leaves seven grandchildren; Jodi Pallagi, Terrance Pallagi, Laura Crysler, Imre Nash Pallagi, Carolyn Nash Pallagi, Tanis Pallagi and Katrina Pallagi; and five great grand-children; Ilona d’Entremont Pallagi, Dalena Pallagi Murray, Avril Pallagi Murray, Jorja Pallagi Hastings, and Elwood Schaefer. “Mona” is also survived by her 95-year-old mother Kathleen Brown Boudreau, her sisters Sandra Wannamaker, Louise Fulford, Monique Boudreau and Yvonne Boudreau, and brother James Wannamaker, and many nieces, nephews, cousins and other extended family and friends. Survived also by her step-siblings Bruce Miller, Emily Miller and Beverly Miller, pre-deceased by step-brother Albert Miller. Ramona was the eldest child born in Milford, Ontario and raised on a farm in Prince Edward County, Ontario. She once worked as a popcorn girl at a cinema, and at a bra factory but spent most of her life as a homemaker. She was known as a warm and hospitable woman, always giving to those in need without any thought for her own well-being. She had a sharp memory and never forgot a single birthday or anniversary. Her laughter could turn the darkest moment into sunshine. She married her first husband, Imre Oden Pallagi Dec. 12, 1954 at the Hungarian Community Centre in Toronto, Ontario and they later resided and raised their children in Oakville, Ontario. After their divorce, she met and married Kenneth Tonge May 12, 1984 at the Elora Mill Inn in Elora, Ontario and they resided in Orangeville, Ontario. After her second divorce she moved around from Cornwall, Ontario to Ottawa, Ontario to Scott, Saskatchewan and eventually settled at Meadowcroft Retirement Residence in Edmonton, Alberta. Ramona has been cremated and will return to her home province of Ontario on Saturday, August 25, 2012 where she will released to the winds in Prince Edward County, Picton, Ontario. A monument will be placed in Wellington Cemetery near her father Wilfred Wannamaker and grandparents Alonzo and Melissa “Annie” Wannamaker (nee Casselman). All family and friends who once knew Ramona are welcome and encouraged to attend this celebration of her life. For more information and where we will be meeting, please contact her granddaughter Jodi Pallagi at jpallagi@cogeco.ca or 519-341-4957.

The Picton Gazette THURSDAY, AUGUST 23, 2012

Open gym sessions keep Panthers primed and ready for new season "Our goal will be qualifying then taking it another step to get that OFSAA berth," he said. Garden noted team leader Erin O'Brien had successful knee surgery and will return ready with other high-minute veterans like Emily Clark, Courtney Wilson, Alyssa VanRossum, and Maggie Dorenberg ready to provide leadership. Monday's session also showed a promising group of incoming Grade 9s who should help strengthen the junior program in the year ahead. "You never know with the junior team, but from what I've seen out so far, it's

Alumni return to set good example for basketball teams AdAm BrAmBurger Staff writer

While classes aren't back in session for another two weeks, the main gymnasium at PECI was filled with the squeaking of rubber shoes on hardwood, the bouncing of balls, and many voices. This week the Panthers basketball teams continued with their open gym sessions, which coach Rob Garden has offered each week to ensure the players are receiving their court time. "It's just about letting them play," said Garden as he watched a group of girls scrimmage Monday. "We don't have a YMCA here where they can come and go. A lot of kids in the cities spend a lot of their time in the summers there in semistructured play. That's how they get better." Typically, the girls have been taking to the court Tuesdays in preparation for their fall season, while the boys have resorted to Sunday nights to get their hoops action. Garden said the turnout from both programs has been encouraging considering all the options the youth have. "We have about 10 girls every time. It changes, some girls are working or vacationing, but there's always been a consistent 10 of them ranging from Grade 7-12. The boys are right up there too." On Monday, it wasn't just Panthers' hopefuls on the court. Alumnus Niki Van Haarlem, who made the University of Guelph Gryphons as a walk-on last season was out honing her craft. Most days, Seneca College's OCAA all-rookie team member Paige Smith and her twin sister Katrina, also a star with the Panthers would also have joined her. After the players moved off the court to grab water following one of Garden's drills VanHaarlem would stay on the court, practicing shots repetitively until it was time to reconvene. On several occasions, she'd stop to share tips with her teammates. Garden said having players of that calibre out for the open gym sessions has really helped influence the current crop of talent. "They've shown the girls something about what it takes," he said. "Definitely, some of our senior girls have looked at their example to see they have to raise their work ethics to reach another level." Garden recalled one day when VanHaarlem and the Smith sisters stayed after scrimmages and instead of fooling around with basketballs or talking with friends, they quietly put down cones and began wind sprints without any direction to do so. "That turned some heads," he said. "They're proving they're really great mentors. They're not just

going to be one of our biggest, most athletic groups since I've been involved," Garden said. That group will be entrusted to Andrew Wentworth, who has signed on to return as junior coach, a move Garden says will provide consistency in coaching tactics. With the boys' season still months away, Garden said he's been impressed with the dedication and commitment his seniors have shown as many are playing and producing in a Belleville-area men's league. The coach said he's expecting that team could be a challenger for a title come the winter. Specializing in Tree Preservation

another year tips off, Garden likes what he sees from that development. He said there are some really talented players making the

move to the senior ranks to join a core that's about six or seven deep, who narrowly missed a chance to qualify for COSSA last year.

Pizza makes the perfect pairing for Bergeron’s range of wines, ciders

A couple weeks ago I wrote about Norm Hardie Winery and I mentioned that pizza and wine were the perfect match — and it is! The next day a good friend of mine e-mailed me right away and asked if I had tried the pizza and wine at Bergeron Estates Winery. Now I've tried all of their wines but had never had the occasion to try their pizza so I thought this would be a good excuse to hop on the ferry and drop by and see David Bergeron. Technically their winery is not in the county but they are located within Ontario's fourth and newest Designated Viticultural Area (DVA). This happened in 2007 and includes the county region as well as a small part on the mainland across the Adolphus Reach from North Marysburgh. A DVA is a wine producing region for which rules and regulations are set down by the Vintners Quality Alliance (VQA) of Ontario. David and his brother Ted grew up in the Cobden (Ottawa valley) area on a hobby farm in the early ‘70s for 10 years. When Waupoos Estates Winery opened in the county, the brothers saw the opportunity to get back to their roots. They and their spouses spent a few hours discussing the possibilities of entering the wine industry while quaffing some wine. In 2001, they formulated the idea of getting into the industry and for the next couple of years searched for an appropriate site for their

sippin’ in the county JOE HACHE

vineyard. They joined the Prince Edward Winegrowers Association (PECWA) where David was an active board member for four years and was nominated as chairman in his fifth year. They found their ideal property at Adolphus reach in 2002, purchasing 26.20 acres (10 hectares) of Lindsay Clay farmland. The site was ideal for growing Pinot noir, Gamay noir, Vidal, Riesling and Gewurtraminer grapes because of its primarily deep, Lindsay clay soil. In addition, the site is partially protected from the county escarpment across the reach and does not experience late spring frosts or early fall frosts thus providing a longer growing season. The waterfront on the southern shores of the property are off the Bay of Quite which is 21 fathoms in the centre. In 2003, the first 20 rows of grapes were

planted: four rows each of Vidal, Riesling, Gewurtraminer, Pinot noir and ten rows of Gamay noir. This is the planting area due south of the tasting room. In 2004, an additional 3,800 Gamay noir vines and 3,000 Pinot noir vines were planted in the area directly to the east of the tasting room. In 2005, one more hectare of Riesling was planted , south of the original field. The soil

in the area is much sandier than elsewhere on the farm. Also in 2005, a second parcel of land was purchased adjacent to the property that was severed off several years before. The two families successfully applied for a lot addition to put the farm land back together. At that time David and his wife Mary also severed off the farm house on the lake and moved in July 2005. It is anticipated that the next plantings of five acres will be in the 27 acres to the west of the tasting room. The projection is that within 10 years there will be 30

to 40 acres of the farm under vine. Since opening its doors in 2007, Bergeron Estates’ biggest problem has been keeping up with demand for their product. In 2010 they started selling Cole Point Cider and they sold out in 90 days. Apples for the cider are grown just up the road from the vineyard at Spring Meadow Orchards. That same buying local approach is taken for Nona’s Pizzeria, a newly opened restaurant located at Bergeron’s. Many of the ingredients for the Italian style pizza are produced by

local farmers. Michael Potters from the former Harvest Restaurant in Picton was the person to show Bergeron the ins and outs of making pizza but is was a special sauce developed by Nonna, his Italian Motherin-law, that set his pizza apart from others! The tasting room is housed in a house that was part of the farm. The beams used in the ceiling are approximately 160 years old and came from a barn in Harrowsmith, northwest of Kingston. The antique wine press in the tasting room belonged to Mary Bergeron’s father (Vince Ialacci), who used it when he came from Italy for over 30 years, and was used in their 2005 press. The crates used to display the wines came from the apple producer whose orchard is just east of the winery (Loyalist Orchards). Although not located in the county proper, this winery deserves to be on every wine lovers list, especially if you savour the thought of sippin’ a Gamay while enjoying a pizza looking out over acres of vines stretching toward Lake Ontario. A perfect match in a perfect setting! -Joe Hache maintains an independent guide to local wineries at www.princeedwardcountywineries.com. Join him in the Gazette for a tour of county wineries.

Sprinter also runs a competitive race in 200-metre dash

NORTON, from page 1

After a soild indoor season this past winter, Norton tore up the track for PECI at the Bay of Quinte meet this past spring, winning triple jump, 100-metre and long jump titles before qualifying and making a strong showing at North America's largest outdoor track meet, the OFSAA championships. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I defintiely have no regrets,â&#x20AC;? Norton told the Gazette as his family was travelling westward after their stay on the gentle island. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I competed to the best of my ability in 2012 and it was a great season overall.â&#x20AC;? Going into the 100 m

finals, Norton said he didn't have much of feel on how he would fair in spite of posting a personal best time of 11.25 in the heat portion of the race. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I really didn't expect to medal going into the event,â&#x20AC;? Norton said. But top-seeded 2012 OFSAA champion Paul Shermar faulted to open the finals, causing a stir at the line.Norton regrouped and ran a 11.34, good enough for third place. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I really didn't get comfortable in the blocks and didn't get a great start but I made up for it,â&#x20AC;? he said. In the long jump, Norton saved his best leap for last, uncoiling a jump of 6.20 m

to push through to the podium. The soon-to-be Grade 10 student also competed in the 200-metre dash and ran avery respectable 23.34 which, if he can duplicate at the 2013 Bay of Quinte meet, will break the local high school junior boys record. In the finals, Norton was saddled with running in lane eight and was unable to spot the field as it closed on him and wound up finishing seventh. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I ran a pretty good race and that was only my fourth 200-metre race of my career,â&#x20AC;? he added. Norton's medal haul was part of Quinte Legion Track and Field Club's best

perfromance ever at a national meet. In total, the six-member team took home eight medals and cracked the top ten in team standings. As for Norton, he is hoping to take a couple of weeks off, enjoy whats left of his summer and then start training for the indoor track and feild season which kicks off in January. Norton spent part of the summer training with the Oshawa-based Speed Acadamey, a sprintersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; haven. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It's been great being able to train with them and I appreciate all the support I've gotten from my family, taking me back and forth from Oshawa,â&#x20AC;? he said.

The engineer who conducted the inspection found the wall has severe deterioration of the footing on the lake side and structural cracking. Councillor Brian Marisett said it was important to get the projects done and voted in favour of picking one of the projects to submit an application to the CIIF. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some of these things are already in our budget forecast. These are all expenses we're going to incur and one day we're going to have to finance them,â&#x20AC;? he said.

There are 10 bridges running along the length of the Millennium Trail and all 10 need varying degrees of rehabilitation. Every bridge in the province that is used for pedestrians of vehicles that is longer than three metres has to be inspected on a â&#x20AC;&#x153;biennial rotationâ&#x20AC;? through the Ontario Structural Inspection Manual. The report says â&#x20AC;&#x153;continued use of the trail relies on these bridges being brought up to a standard that is acceptable.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The OSIM inspection report indicates that the trail bridge work indicated should commence in one to

Potential Insurance issues with older homes Every week I come across items in a home that insurance providers flag as unacceptable or have a potential of high risk. House insurance is intended to protect homeowners against most unforeseeable circumstances or accidents, but not predictable or inevitable events. Given that insurance companies continually compile and review the causes for insurance claims, they are capable of more accurately evaluating their risk associated with certain building components that have a high claim frequency. To minimize their risk, insurance companies are requiring certain inspections or upgrades to high risk building components be completed to provide home insurance on certain (often new) insurance policies. Their policy modifications are not necessarily related to building code changes and requirements, or technological advancements, but rather are developed to reduce the risk of insurance companies from having to pay out on homeowner claims. In spite of the wide range of specific inspections and upgrade requirements, there are several common areas associated with homeowner’s insurance that concern insurance companies.

Aluminum Electrical Distribution Wiring

Single strand aluminum distribution wiring was installed in many homes between 1968 and 1978 (approximately). Due to its tendency to oxidize and its incompatibility with certain fittings designed for use with copper wiring, aluminum wiring has been determined to overheat in certain situations. As long as proper connections are used, and the connections are made without damaging the wire, aluminum wiring is however considered safe. For years, the presence of aluminum wiring in a home has been an item that, if installed and managed properly, has not been a safety concern. However, more recently, several insur ance companies have been requiring (for new insurance policies) that the aluminum wiring be inspected by an ESA (Electrical Safety Authority) inspector, and if necessary, requiring certain upgrades or repairs to fixtures in the home or in some cases, requiring replacement of the aluminum wiring with copper wiring.

60-amp Electrical Services

60-amp Electrical Services were commonly installed in homes prior to

1950. The term "60 amps" represents the maximum amount of current that a home may use from the local utility at one time. It is currently common to install a 100 amp electrical service (as a minimum) in new home construction. 60 amp main electrical service is considered small by today’s standards; it is not inherently considered an unsafe system. However, there are two common safety issues often associated with older, 60 amp services. These include increased risk of amateurish/unsafe historic electrical repairs and improper fuse size installations associated with the 60 amp system; both of these items can cause overheating of distribution wiring in the home, potentially causing an electrical fire.

Knob and Tube Wiring

Knob and tube wiring is characterized by separately run hot and neutral wires, paper insulated wires, ceramic insulators and the absence of junction boxes at wire splices. If this type of wiring has been professionally maintained since its original installation, is often still a very safe system. However, ungrounded conditions, improper modifications and amateurish home owner repairs of this type of wiring can lead to certain safety/fire issues; this is the main reason why knob and tube

wiring is considered a higher risk than contemporary wiring installations. Regardless of the actual rationale for the insurance companies concerns with 60 amp services and knob and tube wiring, their mere presence in a home is currently a common trigger for further review/upgrades to an older electrical system. Upgrading these components often reduces the insurance company’s risk of an electrical fire and subsequent claim.

Galvanized Plumbing

Galvanized supply and distribution piping was historically installed in homes prior to 1950. These pipes commonly rust or corrode from the inside out, often reducing the pressure or restricting the flow of water or worse yet, leaking and creating flood damage to a home. Given that many galvanized pipe installations have recently reached their estimated life expectancies, the risk of a pipe leak occurring and the potential for flood damage is high. Some insurance companies are now refusing to provide homeowner's insurance on houses with this type of plumbing.

across Canada for decades, although they are more common in eastern Canada. In many cases the fuel oil tanks are original or greater than 20 years old. As fuel oil tank/distribution system installations age, the probability for leakage from rust, corrosion, damage, etc. also increases. If a fuel oil leak occurs and goes undetected, the environmental cleanup for such a situation can be immense. The TSSA (Technical Standards Safety Authority) requires all fuel oil installations be inspected by a licensed TSSA/HVAC technician every 10 years. Fuel oil distributors may also refuse delivery to any residence they feel is not in compliance with the current regulation. Other insurance company concerns can range from fireplaces/wood stoves to roof conditions to asbestos. All wood burning appliances should be inspected by a WETT (Wood Energy Technical Transfer) certified inspector. Given the wide range of potential concerns, it is important for homebuyers to verify specific requirements with the insurance company they intend to use.
