A revised approach to community grants and funding to external agencies had council approve the funding several community groups and organizations were seeking at a special council meeting last week. In the past groups and organizations may have had to wait until municipal budget discussions had ended to see if their requests had been granted. On Wednesday council took stock of what has received solid support in the past, and approved several of those requests before the day was out. County chief administrative officer Merlin Dewing said staff wanted to offer council the new option of approving grants rather than discussing them later as part of overall budget discussions, “in cases where (council is) absolutely sure and confident you're going to approve the grant.” The new method saw council approve a County of Prince Edward Library & Archives request of $1,007,471 in addition to setting aside $25,000 in a contingency fund to cover a potential salary increase within the year. The Regent Theatre's request of $40,000 was approved, as was the Prince Edward Fitness and Aquatic Centre's capital funding request of $20,000. The Wellington Cemetery Board's $6,000 request too was approved. Community grants funding — which consists of requests under $5,000 — was approved at a total of $19,816 spread across 10 groups and organizations. These requests were for a mixture of cash and inkind funding. Council also chose to refer several requests to later budget discussions so they could view them in relation to the overall budget.

Another monthly meeting and another top person at the Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board is announcing his retirement. A month after longtime superintendent of business services Dave Rutherford announced he would be retiring from the public school board, its director of education announced he would be retiring at the end of the school year. Picton resident Rob McGall told board trustees Monday evening that it was his intention to retire on June 30, 2013. For over 30 years McGall has dedicated his professional life to education, with the last nine years as a member of the HPEDSB leadership team. McGall was picked to replace previous director of education Kathy Soule upon her retirement in 2011 and McGall has served in the board's top post for about a year- and- a- half. After the meeting, McGall said the time to close out his career in public education was at hand. “When I singed on as director of education, the trustees knew that I was close to retirement and they still wanted to have my services for that period of time,” McGall said of his time as head of the local public school board. “We've made some real strides in terms of moving some important issues forward and now, the timing is right for me and family.”

Point Traverse man fears for fishery as government phases out leases Environment Canada denied lessee’s request to transfer Natural Wildlife Area land plot to active fisherman AdAm BrAmBurger Staff writer
Tim McCormack is facing a ticking clock that he feels could spell doom for the legacy of commercial fishing at Point Traverse. A fourth generation fisherman off the county’s south shore, McCormack has been ordered by Environment Canada to remove his property — including three buildings — from a parcel of land by March 4, or the government will demolish it. Given the precedent the move could set, he believes the orders could be a first step toward destroying a livelihood for many. “It means they’re waging war on the commercial fishery,” he said. “They want us out.” The contentious issue dates back to 1978 when Environment Canada acquired land near the point to set up the National Widlife Area there. Realizing the commercial fishery was there, Environment Canada opted to allow 21 lots along the water to be leased to families working in the commercial fishing industry. McCormack’s parents were among the original leaseholders of plots of land within the area, as were William and Larry Aman, who signed a lease in November 1980 to hold title to Plot 15 for a sum of $200 per year. The Aman family grew older and eventually stopped participating in the
fishery, while lease was in the name of Dorothy Aman, a senior citizen who made an agreement to transfer her commercial fishing licence to McCormack in August 2011. After successfully transferring the licence under the provisions set out by the province’s Ministry of Natural Resources, Aman attempted to transfer her lease to McCormack, which she believed she could do as part of her original lease. That lease said a transfer of lease rights could be made with the written consent of the Environment Canada “where the commercial fishing licence held by the Lessee is purchased and exercised by a third party and where the transfer is made to said purchaser.” In 2011, Environment Canada turned down a request by Aman to transfer the lease to McCormack and terminated the lease on her behalf. Mark Johnson, a spokesperson with Enviroment Canada’s communications branch, said at the time, Aman was informed Environment Canada would be phasing out the leasehold arrangements. He said at that time, Aman was informed the transfer would not be approved because Enviroment Canada was phasing out the leaseholds because “commercial fishing is inconsistent with the stewardship mandate of Environment Canada regarding the preservation of and use

erman Tim McCormack has until March 4 to move his buildings and belongings from a piece of land he says he should be able to lease. (Adam Bramburger/Gazette staff)
of this Natural Widlife Area.” Johnson told the Gazette the leases were given at the time to accommodate existing lessees to support their fishing operations without any undue hardship. He noted that at this point, no new leases are being considered within the Prince Edward Point National Wildlife Area, nor area transfers from existing lessees to non-family third parties being approved.

He stressed that a public boat ramp and dock will continue to be made available to commercial or sport fishermen and also that the demolition of buildings on the property would be completed without any cost to Aman. Johnson said the phasing out of commercial lots in the Prince Edward Point area will help to restore habitat and biodiversity. McCormack has been frustrated with the way the

Meisenheimer said it is his belief that Environment Canada has effectively rewritten policy on the fly, without the formal dialogue one would expect when a major shift in policy is introduced. “Frankly, it’s dishonourable and reprehensible,” he said. “We’ve been saying there needs to be an actual, organized discussion about policy... What we’re getting is boilerplate or brush off.” He indicated that while he fears for McCormack and for the Point Traverse fishery at-large, there are leaseholders across Canada including commercial fishermen with similar arrangements that might face a similar fate. Meisenheimer said he believes McCormack and Aman have acted in good faith and they deserve answers. He added maybe it is now time to apply a bit of political pressure to the situation as well. Meanwhile, McCormack confirmed he has spoken with Picton lawyer Bruce Campbell about his case and he has also had Campbell seek an injunction to delay the March 4 demolition of property remaining on the parcel of land. Meisenheimer said his organization may opt to throw its support behind legal action as well, should its executive choose to do so. McCormack is also looking to rally people who support his cause and wishes to hear from them by e-mail at email@example.com.

case has been handled, particularly since he says his family’s lineage is proof that his intent is to contribute to the economy through fishing. He indicated it might be different had he been trying to build a luxury cottage or a power installation on the land, but the fishery was in operation long before the Natural Widlife Area existed. He hopes it will continue to his son’s generation. McCormack isn’t the only one baffled at the situation. Prince Edward Hastings MPP Daryl Kramp has lobbied publicly on his behalf and indicated he intends to meet with Environment Minister Peter Kent in hopes of finding an alternate solution. Meanwhile Ontario Commercial Fisheries Association executive director Peter Meisenheimer has also taken note. Meisenheimer said he’s shocked by the way Environment Canada has handled the file to date. “It’s remarkable how completely uninterested anybody is in having the conversation,” he said. He recalled how there was quite a battle when the Canadian Wildlife Service acquired the land for preservation, but said the minister of the day made assurances the fishery would not be impacted. “There is no evidence they intended to force the fishery out,” he said, noting the value in the fishery was in the aggregate and in preserving a harbour.

QHC proposes delayed removal of beds and deferral of endoscopy move
SlOw exOduS QHC has slowed plans to remove beds from the Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital. After consultation, it will remove four beds in 2013-2014 and another three beds in 2014-2015. (Chad Ibbotson/Gazette staff)

lion,â€? QHC spokesperson Susan Rowe said â€œThat's a rough estimate and there is still union consultations to go through.â€? Rowe also added QHC still has not had its funding envelope that will flow
and its stay of execution appears temporary. QHC is holding off on announcing the cessation of the program locally until the new operating rooms are completed at BGH. Under the proposal, moving the service will allow QHC to realize costs savings through the centralization of reprocessing equipment at the Belleville site. â€œDeferring this decision a year will allow more time to make that decision and the surgical program wants to go back, take the time to examine the proposed model further and see if the consolidation makes sense. The decision will have to take place in the fall,â€? Rowe said.

Changes in service are coming to Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital, (PECMH) but they won't be doled out all at once. The Quinte Healthcare Corporation (QHC) announced at its monthly board meeting in Belleville Tuesday evening the original proposal calling for service cuts and bed reductions at PECMH as part of an effort to bridge a projected $10-million funding gap had been modified after a month-long community and staff consultation process. After originally calling for the compliment of medicine beds at PECMH to be reduced by 12, QHC is now proposing to remove four beds in 2013-2014 and another three beds the following year. In terms of endoscopy at PECMH, the decision to centralize the program at Belleville General Hospital (BGH) has been deferred until 2014-2015. Still in limbo at PECMH are maternity services and there will be an altering to processing in bound emergency room patients that are en route in an ambulance. The modified proposal, which include other cost savings measures at Trenton Memorial and BGH, will bring QHC close to bridging the projected funding gap. â€œOur high level estimates that the proposals will reach to about $8.5 mil-
two and three patients with less urgent needs would go directly to the ER in Belleville under the modified proposal. Rowe said there will be set parameters for these patients and in almost all cases, these patients would wind up at BGH for their care anyway. Rowe used the example of someone suffering a broken hip after a fall. â€œThese are patients that would require emergency surgery or the care of a specialist that would be at BGH. It's similar to our process on suspected stroke patients,â€? she explained. The highly efficient endoscopy program at PECMH has been a point of pride for the local facility
bers,â€? said Rowe. The end of birthing babies locally looks like its it coming to an end, but Rowe was quick to maintain that maternity beds leaving PECMH is a byproduct of the removal of medicine beds. â€œTaking maternity beds out of PECMH is not financially driven, it's all about the staffing and whether we have the staff with the the specialized skills to offer that service,â€? Rowe said. â€œWhen we reduce the number beds, we don't believed we will have required nurses to provide that service 24/7 although we are meeting with staff and physicians one final time before a decision is made.â€? In terms of persons needing serious and immediate acute care, QHC is no longer considering diverting Canadian Triage Assessment System (CTAS) Level one patients directly to emergency at BGH. Prince Edward County patients (of which there are about 30 annually) will go to emergency in Picton via ambulance. â€œWe did not receive the support from the ER physicians on this proposal,â€? Rowe said. However, CTAS level

County residents active in providing feedback on proposals to QHC Many correspondents express fears that vital services could be heading out of the community through cuts Jason Parks
As expected, residents of Prince Edward County have come through loud and clear regarding Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital. Quinte Healthcare Corporation spokesperson Susan
Rowe offered board members a detailed synopsis of reaction and public input to proposed cost cutting measures at the group's monthly meeting Tuesday night. The local hospital is attempting to bridge a possible $10 million budget gap as the province of Ontario's aus-

terity measures are leading the Ministry of Health and Long-term Care to invest in community supports and rein in spending on front line, acute care facilities. Naturally, the provincially driven transformation of healthcare has left more than a few concerned, especially when it's perceived the change over will come at the cost of services at PECMH Rowe said almost 270 responses came flooding into the QHC offices during the public input period and that included 120 form letters that were part of an initiative by Prince Edward County Mayor Peter Mertens. Of the collection of emails, phone calls and letters, 237 were generated by people in Prince Edward County. Rowe's presentation was to ensure Board members had a chance to hear from those taking time to submit feedback to the proposed cost cutting measures prior to members voting to endorse the 2013-2014 operating plan. For the most part, Rowe said here was an overall support on the intent or vision of delivering more services in the home and community and outside of hospitals. “The vast majority of peo-
ple want to receive care in their own home and not rely on hospital as much as they do and there was also a high understanding of the real financial challenges facing QHC given the fiscal reality and the financial situation of the province,” she offered. People are also very supportive of the high level of care they receive at the local hospitals. However, fear, either imagined or real, was a common thread in missives sent to QHC. “There is a lot of fear in the community and a lot of misconceptions in the community about what this proposal really means,” Rowe said. “People believe beds are being taken away from Picton but moved to Belleville and that county residents would have to receive their inpatient care in Belleville. Concerns the emergency room in Picton was being closed or put on reduced hours were voiced. “The idea that people that live here should have to drive an extra 35 minutes to access the ER in Belleville because the one here is not open all the time or can't handle the traffic is just not acceptable,” wrote one con-

cerned citizen. Rowe said this type of misunderstanding was corrected through phone calls most of the time, however, some responders said they were talking about the future. “I want the board to understand that (emergency closures) isn't always a misunderstanding but it is a fear about what the future could bring,” Rowe said. “I would explain the situation and the person would say 'I'm worried about five years from now.'.” The emotional ties to having babies delivered at PECMH was also evident through the responses as passionate and emotional feedback was delivered concerning maternity services that are close to home. “People want to continue to have the option to deliver at PECMH,” Rowe said. “Some people wanted to have Picton on their birth certificate. People have a lot of pride that five generations of their family have been born in Picton and there is a sense of loss that it wouldn't happen in the future.” Other concerns included trying to transport a woman in labour from the southern reaches of Prince Edward
County to Belleville in time and also having a spouse drive back and forth from Belleville during the labour and recovery process. Some fear the community supports designed to divert the current hospital crush won't be up and operating in time when the proposals are put into action. Those people called for proof of these community supports in operation prior to the cost cutting measures implemented. “My biggest concern is the loss of the rural hospital. Trying to make an urban solution fit a rural landscape doesn't make sense economically or socially. For specialized care, an urban hospital makes sense, but not at the cost of losing regular health care services like birth, palliative care and every day care that people want to access close to their home,” said another respondent. Another harkened on the fact that these reductions were a slippery slope and even tried to ring the oftrung, always ignored bell of de-amalgamation.

Sine and friends to take stage for MS Society Chad Ibbotson
The local chapter of the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada is hoping there will strong support for its latest concert fundraiser. The concert, as it did last year, features local musician Lorraine Sine as its headliner. The concert will take place Sunday, March 10 at 2 p.m. in Centennial Hall at the Picton United Church. Event co-ordinator Gloria Jowett said the local group is still trying to sort out how the renewal taking place within the national organization will affect
things locally, but currently it's business as usual. “What we've learned is that it will be a process that will take time. Presently they're working through the series of steps,” she said. That means the local MS groups is going to continue fundraising and bringing services to residents living with multiple sclerosis. “We've decided to have our second Lorain Sine concert to raise money to help people living in their homes here in the county with the effects of MS,” Jowett said. Aside from Sine, also
taking the stage will be Sine's sisters Sandra and Linda, Judy Fraser, Bud Gregory, Fraser Hardman, John Milford, Peter Rea, David Ian, and John, Penny, and Roanna Kitchen. “This should be an enjoyable afternoon. We had a full house last year and are anticipating the same thing again this year,” Jowett said. Tickets for the concert are available at either Mayhew Jewellers, the Regent Cafe, Flowers N Such, or at the door for $15. “We'd like to invite families, neighbours, and friends to support this
cause,” Jowett said. Jowett said the society would like to raise about $2,000 with the event, but said anything the society is able to raise is much appreciated and will be wellused. “We're just hopeful. You never know what the day will bring,” she said. “A lot of services are supported by our group for people living in their home. Some people need housekeeping help, other people need mattresses for their beds, or mobility aids they can't get through other sources.” She said the group
it's a recognition of PECMH's cruel and inevitable fate when it was taken from this community and put into this faulty arrangement,” they said. QHC chief executive officer and president Mary Clare Egberts said she had been in meetings with Quinte-area Community Care Access Centre Jackie Redmond Tuesday and addressed concerns that
community supports would not be in place. “One of the significant questions coming forwards is is the community sector which the CCAC controls a lot of, are they going to be ready for the changes that are coming in their direction? They realize the challenges, they are gearing up and they do believed they are going to be in good shape,” Egberts said.
Egberts said QHC has had a very good working relationship with the CCAC and she expects that to continue as the group takes a far more active role in the healthcare of local residents. “The conversation between ourselves, the SE LHIN and the CCAC is going very well and they making sure they are there to meet the service needs as required.”
always hopes to have some money left over to donate to research as well. She said those who come are sure to have a good time. “It's always an enjoyable concert and usually goes for a couple hours or more,” she said. “It's a mix of instrumental, it's oldtime country, it's rock and
roll. It just goes the gamut — it's a real variety show.” Jowett said the society welcomes any interested parties and potential volunteers to their meetings. The Prince Edward chapter meets the first Tuesday of each month at the Bloomfield United Church hall at 1:30 p.m.
Happy 50th Karen!

■ Of 7,061 cattle tested within the county for tuberculosis, only 29 failed skin tests and were considered reactors. At less than one-third of one per cent, that’s an indication the county’s herds were not at a great risk of the disease. Typically, the reactors would be destroyed to reduce the risk of spreading the disease. ■ A delegation visiting the Ontario Good Roads Convention, including the County’s warden and several local reeves met with Minister of Game and Fisheries George Challies to request the price of licences for commercial fishing operations around Point Traverse, Salmon Point, and elsewhere in the Quinte region be reduced given a reduced price on the market for fish. They also argued fees were making it non-viable to operate a hatchery near Glenora that could help the industry. ■ Following a decision by Premier Henry, it was announced that nightschool classes would close in Napanee, leaving no alternatives in the region.

■ Town council approved the purchase of 20 additional street name markers to ensure that intersections in Picton were marked with the names of the streets, continuing a process started the previous year and seen in many other towns. Mayor McFarland worked to get posts and paint donated for the new markers. ■ Councillors approved a $400 increase in the Picton library budget to cover rising insurance and maintenance costs. It was noted the Picton library’s circulation greatly exceeded that of libraries in Cobourg, Napanee, and Trenton. ■ The local health unit wrote a letter to the town requesting adequate control of the dump in marsh areas. It was noted smoke from the dump led to obnoxious odours that could constitute a health hazard in the case of certain people.

■ Governor General Roland Michener awarded new Order of Military Merit badges to Picton’s Master Warrant Officer Howard Clark and Corporal D.A. Claxton for their outstanding contribution and dedication to service through their careers with the Canadian Armed Forces. ■ Reynolda Rockman Heidi V.G., a dairy cow owned by Picton’s Robert May produced 30,007 lbs of milk in 305 days and 1,020 lbs fat on a twice-daily schedule. That put the five-year old third on the alltime list of Canadian milk producers. ■ Prince Edward-Hastings MP George Hees pushed the federal government to ensure that it would be partnering with Ontario to provide compensation for homeowners whose property was damaged due to high Lake Ontario waters.

■ MP Lyle Vanclief said he wasn’t surprised to hear that prime minister Brian Mulroney was stepping down, saying the prime minister realized he’d face personal defeat if he didn’t step aside.Even without him, Vanclief cautioned voters the Tories would still be the same party. ■ Bloomfield reeve Ben Prinzen said that despite cost-cutting measures saving the village $13,000 a year, he still said council would not be able to stop a tax increase, due primarily to lost assessment.

Bohemian waxwings, nomads of the bird world Don’t be surprised if you are driving through the village of Wellington and you see a massive flock of birds fly across the street in front of you. They are not starlings or blackbirds or something else that is generally quite common. Doubtless, these will be waxwings. The majority, however, will be something special, a bird that looks like a waxwing, but is a little bit different. These are not the usual common garden variety cedar waxwings we are accustomed to seeing occasionally in our backyards, although there may be a few in amongst them. Upon closer examination, these are noticeably different — larger, greyer and with a peculiar voice which collectively sounds like hundreds of nestlings calling for food; they do not have the fine, thin, lispy notes of the cedar waxwing. When viewed from underneath, the rufous-red under tail coverts clearly separate these birds from the more common cedar waxwings. These birds are Bohemian waxwings, and eastern Ontario is experiencing blizzards of them this winter. In the Quinte region, many seem concentrated in the Wellington area where there are numerous shrubs and trees with frozen fruit still attached. While the more familiar cedar waxwing nests right across Ontario, it isn’t every year we get to see its larger Bohemian cousin. That’s because they nest in northern Ontario —- in fact, as far north as a bird can get without crossing over into northern Manitoba. They like
OUTDOOR RAMBLES TERRY SPRAGUE
the river banks along the open muskegs of the Hudson Bay Lowlands and it is there they seek out nesting habitat, and feed on the native berries that grow nearby. However, things go awry when the pantry shelves become bare. Like another northern species, the redpoll who has responded this year to a shortage of birch seeds, and has travelled to our area in search of food, so it has been with the Bohemian waxwing. Last summer’s relentless drought has resulted in a poor crop of native mountain-ash berries in much of northern Ontario this winter and this has forced Bohemian waxwings to wander both south and east this winter. While here, they will munch on the tiny frozen apples of flowering crab and will exploit any European buckthorn berries they can find that haven’t already been consumed by wintering robins.
The movement of both redpolls and Bohemian waxwings are only part of a mass movement of northern avian residents this winter as they leave their normal haunts and check out the seed and berry restaurants in this part of the province. Pine grosbeaks are also here in small groups as they, too, choose mountain ash berries as their staple diet. And very few people, even casual observers who normally don’t make it a point to look for birds, can’t help but see a barred owl or two this winter. There’s a lot of stuff out there this winter. Expert birder Ron Pittaway of Minden in his bird population predictions had this to say about the Bohemian waxwing population this winter. “Expect a flight this winter because the mountain ash berry crop in the boreal forest was affected by drought. Even though some areas have large crops, many berries are hard with low moisture content. Farther south, Bohemians will be attracted to the usually abundant buckthorn berries because European mountain ash and ornamental crabapple crops are generally low and of poor quality.” For most northern birds, once they find a food source, they will usually hang around all winter, and this is what they have done in this Prince Edward County village on Lake Ontario. Wellington resident Sydney Smith of Narrow Street has been keeping an eye on them as they come and go, sometimes in small groups,
other times in large flocks such as the estimated 250 that descended on her street two weekends ago. Bohemian waxwings tend to be the nomads of the bird world, and wander all over the countryside exploiting food sources as they find them. In 2000, during a similar irruption, they actually outnumbered cedar waxwings, and flocks numbering more than 1,000 were routinely seen in the Picton and Napanee areas. Because they will join flocks of cedar waxwings and travel the countryside together, they make the job of determining accurate population counts difficult. Other times, they remain aloof in flocks of their own. How long they will hang around this winter is uncertain. Generally by the end of March and into April, their thoughts turn to pairing up and nesting, and will gradually return to the Hudson Bay Lowlands. Bird feeder operators have no need to worry about what to offer them while they are here; Bohemian waxwings very seldom have any interest in feeders, preferring instead to dine on any available fruit still hanging from trees. And when you think about it, we probably wouldn’t want 500 to 1,000 waxwings as daily guests at our feeders anyway!

Dates set aside for Prince Edward County Field Naturalists’ appeal
Following preliminary hearings into appeals of the Ostrander Point Wind Energy Project, the Environmental Review Tribunal has decided it will proceed with the Prince Edward County Field Naturalists’s appeal first. That appeal was put forward on the grounds that the Gilead Power project would cause serious and irreversible harm to plant life, animal life or the natural environment.
A second appeal, launched by the Alliance to Protect Prince Edward County on the subject of human health would be heard after that as the tribunal grapples with the issue of disclosure of witnesses’ medical records. In a press release issued by the Field Naturalists, the lists of dates for their main hearing includes March 4-8, March 25-28, and April 3-5. It was noted that hearing was
slated to take place at Demorestville Town Hall, but attempts are being made to find a larger venue due to interest in the case. The Field Naturalists also noted that as part of their appeal, they requested a stay of any construction involved with the project. Gilead has indicated it will protest that stay request and the tribunal is expected to hear arguments from both sides before issuing
a ruling on that request. Gilead’s renewable energy approval also calls for it to submit an alvar management plan with input from the public, to file a traffic management plan with the municipality, and to establish a community liaison committee before it proceeds with construction of the nine-turbine wind installation. -Staff

Geographic ties within proposed riding are natural
IT seems almost natural that in its latest attempt to rejig the puzzle of Canada’s electoral ridings, the Federal Electoral Boundaries Commission for Ontario has decided it is going to lump Prince Edward County in with Quinte West and Belleville in its recommended ridings for the next election. After all, though it only appears formally as the name of a Conservation Authority, people have been speaking about the Quinte region for years and the neighbouring communities that border on the bay seem to share a common pulse when it comes to activities and to services. Heck, the county aside, most of the communities here almost became Quinte united around the time of amalgamation before Belleville had second thoughts about adopting the name Quinte East. For that reason, these boundaries certainly do seem better suited to the needs of all the municipalities involved than the suggestion on last year’s map that the count y be part of a riding that stretched through Quinte West and included the entire county of Northumberland, except for its heavy population centre of Cobourg and Port Hope. It simply makes sense that the county is tied into the Belleville area, just as that marriage appears to make more sense for the Friendly City than a previous map that would have linked it to the Napanee area. But what about when one compares the work of the commission to the status quo already established? From a logistics point of view, the new boundaries do seem to make much more sense than the current riding as it is hard to fathom many voters from this end of the riding travel north of Hwy 7 enough to be familiar with the geography of that part of this riding, let alone the distinct issues those communities would require representation on. The riding is massive and it is very rural. Some would be quick to applaud the connection of Prince Edward County to Quinte West and to Belleville, noting that past polls here tend to suggest a more progressive sect of voters that would be better aligned to those more urban settings — but alas, one must wonder if the additional crunch of population in the new riding being in an urban area changes the dynamic when it comes to the divide in voting to support agricultural initiatives versus support for transit programs and other city needs. In our view, the geographic benefits likely outweigh the different demographics of the region — it’s just one dynamic people would have to consider when choosing a candidate and a party to represent their interests regularly in Ottawa . The shape of these ridings in eastern Ontario — and indeed all of the ridings across Canada — will be much debated in the House of Commons leading up to a recommendation to bring those 15 new districts into play. It’s a good idea for all ratepayers to understand the changes and to address concerns with MP Daryl Kramp or the political representatives of their choice before the vote is taken.

Families to benefit from two new library initiatives
Two new projects are underway to help develop children’s literacy and love of learning at the County of Prince Edward Public Library & Archives. The recently formed Friday morning drop in Baby Group provides a social time for parents, child caregivers, and their little ones and provides a place where they can meet and share information while learning about resources in the community. The drop in is each Friday at the Picton library branch between 10 am and noon. “The group began by request from some new parents who wanted a chance to get together with others who have babies,” says Liz Zylstra, Youth Coordinator at the library, “and it has become quite popular.” While it is called a Baby Group, “older brothers and sisters are welcome as well.” Those who attend with a baby the first time will be given a Books for County Babies package that includes a board book and music CD along with informative pamphlets. A new baby change has recently been installed in the branch and there is also a semi-private space for nursing as well. There are, of course, books on parenting and toys for little ones to play with, too. Occasionally, guest speakers are invited to the group and on Friday, March 22, early literacy specialist Donna Kaye will be on hand to discuss how sign language is used with babies. Other special guests can be invited. If parents would like to have someone come to speak on a particular topic, they need only ask and the library will endeavour to find someone with the expertise to make a presentation. “We want everyone to visit the library and feel comfortable here in hopes of helping children develop a lifelong habit of visiting and borrowing books,” says Zylstra. Strong early literacy skills are a proven contributor to successful learning. The other new initiative will be good news for fam-

ilies with children of all ages, including home educating families. The library is creating a Family Learning Resource Centre. There are a number of homeschooling families using the library that will benefit from access to specialized learning materials, as will all families with children as they look for ways to supplement learning opportunities. This is especially so in light of the recent discontinuation of the toy lending library of Prince Edward Child Care Services. PECCS offered a variety of toys, including educational ones, some of which they have generously donated to the library. “We have a good number of resources already,” says Zylstra, “but we are looking to supplement the offering. We plan on having these catalogued as learning resources and made available all in one location for parents and their children to borrow.” The library is seeking donations of items such as telescopes, microscopes, building materials such as Lego and K’Nex, educational board games, tangrams, musical instruments and so forth for the new resource collection. If you are unsure if an item would be useful in the collection, please call Liz Zylstra at 613-476-5962 or email: email@example.com An official launch for the new Family Learning Resource Centre in the Picton children’s room is planned for this spring.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
Commercial fishermen, harbour offer great value
To think the government would demolish fishing buildings that have so much historical value and archival history is absurd. I can’t fathom the thought of going to Point Traverse and not see those buildings there, it would be real travesty and complete disrespect to our forefathers if the government did not preserve the history that surrounds this area. I have seen my grandfather, my father and now my brother Tim McCormack fight for the rights of commercial fishing and I commend him for continuing the legacy. It’s a harsh lifestyle and one not many people can brave, unfortunately it’s always been an uphill battle for commercial fishermen with government. It’s very disheartening to the community to know that the government is backing out of an agreement they had with the commercial fishermen and
quite frankly it leaves a sour taste in the mouths of many. The commercial fishermen trusted the government when these deals were made and now they choose to renege on them, my question is why? There is so many without jobs and work in this area and now the government wants to take more trades away, do they think the fish swim to the grocery store themselves? Brave individuals such as my brother risk their lives to provide food for millions of people it’s in their blood and it’s their passion! Commercial fishermen have strict guidelines pertaining to catching certain fish and to ensure the safety of those consuming fish, commercial fishermen have always abided by these guidelines and policies set forth. Another item which hasn’t been addressed and I believe the public should be aware of is the impor-
tance of this harbour. This harbour is the nearest safe haven for recreational boaters from Kingston to Wellington. Numerous times commercial fishermen have been called upon to help stranded boaters in the area and risk their lives to save the lives of others. I remember as a child our father getting calls in October, November of sail boaters going down in Lake Ontario, he never hesitated to risk his life and brave the Lake Ontario waters in November to save a family from going down with their boat. Now my question to the government would be, if you take the harbour away how are these recreational boaters going to survive if they can’t get to safety and who is going to rescue them when a stress call comes in? Additionally the commercial fishermen did these acts of good deed at no cost and simply out of the kindness of their heart and this is how they get repaid. Will it
take a fate of misfortune on Lake Ontario and/or a family stranded with no safe port to land or someone close by to rescue them, for someone to say “Oops we made mistake”. It’s common knowledge in the community of the trying waters in this area mainly because of the difficult shoals, inlets and strange currents. This not only affects the commercial fishermen but could possibly harm any and all potential boaters in the area. I truly hope Environment Canada analyzes the pros and cons of what this could do to the area and how important it is to stand by the agreement that was initially put in place. This shouldn’t be an argument of who wins but how the commercial fishermen and federal government can unite for the betterment of all involved and preserve the heritage. Michelle Nelson
Councillors applauded for decisions about waste
I wish to congratulate County councillors on their decision to open the Picton recycling/waste transfer Site on Wednesdays. And on their decision to implement a compost collection
program in the towns. By increasing access to the Picton site they have increased residents’ opportunities for recycling. By collecting compostable waste in urban
areas, where the use of individual composters is difficult or impossible, they are taking a huge step to help cut down the landfilling of county waste. I hope this decision sig-
nals a realization in council that good government involves helping citizens do the “right thing.” Brian Conway Athol

Three cheers for Councillor Heather Campbell for proposing the motion and to council for passing it, to ask Kathleen Wynne to reconsider her administration's position on wind turbines
in unwilling communities and threatened environments (Gazette, Feb 14). The sooner Mayor Peter Mertens does this the better, for time is short and delay favours the wind turbines.
And then let's all get in on the act. Contact Premier Wynne either electronically at https://correspondence.premier.gov.on.ca/e n/feedback/default.aspx, or by mail, Kathleen
Wynne, Premier, Legislative Building, Queen's Park, Toronto M7A 1A1. Citizen action might — just might — do the trick. Bert Jenkins

Mayer serves as Lion king for a day Grad student sees what life is like as president of his university
WHATTAM’S COMMUNITY CALENDAR The Community Calendar is donated as a public service to our community by The Whattam Funeral Home, 33 Main St., West, Picton (613-476-2450)
Chad Ibbotson Staff writer
After six years at York University David Mayer had a few ideas to improve things at the institution. That's why the former Picton resident decided to enter the university's President for a Day contest. He took over the role on Tuesday. The contest, in which students swap places with president Mamdouh Shoukri, asked students to submit an essay or video which answers the question: “What would be your top three priorities that would directly impact students if you were appointed president of York University.” Mayer's answer: Increase student pride, promote the university's successes, and enhance the student experience. In total more than 40 students submitted an essay or video. Although he felt his priorities were strong, Mayer said he was surprised to be picked. “It's a pretty large university, so hearing that I was selected was shocking and an honour,” he said. Mayer recently graduated from kinesiology and is now an education student. He said during his time at the university there were always some things he and fellow students thought could be improved. He said he entered the contest with those improvements in mind. “This is my sixth year here at York after doing my five-year undergrad in kinesiology and now my bachelor of education here,” Mayer said. “So, I've been here for a few years and there's been a couple things on my mind I thought the university could improve on and this would be a good chance for me to

leave my mark here at the school.” During his time at the school Mayer has been a tireless athlete. He was an anchor on York's silver medal 4 X 200 relay team at the CIS championships in 2011. He is now a volunteer coach with York's track and field team. “We have a lot of great athletics here at York and I think we need to start sharing that pride among the school,” Mayer said of the reasons behind his priorities. “We have a great fostering community and pride amongst the athletes and I hope we can develop that into the greater school community. It's a little difficult with the community-based school, and we're just hoping we can branch out and make new connections.” He said the goal would be for every York student to share the pride the athletes feel. Mayer called stepping into the president's shoes, “a unique experience.” As president, Mayer managed the institution, attended all the president's meetings and handled any other obligations. “I had to go over a new five-year plan for student success, I had to meet with alumni to ask about alumni relations and donations,” he said. “I don't think people really know exactly how much the president does. It
was definitely an interesting experience.” He said the biggest thing he took away from the experience was the realization that the school is aware of many of the problems he and other students had and that those things are being worked on. “They're already taking steps to enhance the student experience,” he said. Among the fun parts of the day was meeting with alumni which included merchant bank and business accelerator Tenth Power Inc. managing director Guy Burry, Mayer said. “Guy Burry was a guy I had previously met, a very engaged alumnus, a true ambassador of the school. He was very fun to chat with,” Mayer said. On the other side of the coin was Shoukri, who filled in for Mayer in classes and other extracurricular activities. Mayer said he spoke with Shoukri on Wednesday morning about the experience. “He reiterated the great faculty and students we have here at York and he definitely saw the pride that York athletes had when he met to run the sport council,” Mayer said. “It was good for me to learn, not only how much he puts into it, but for him to see how much a lot of the students here at York put into the school.”

Bring home a Good Food Box stuffed with high-quality, fresh ingredients
Everyone is always looking for a way to get fresh, nutritious food at a reasonable price. At Prince Edward Community Care for Seniors, we can help people access the Good Food Box. The Community Care office is a host site for the program called The Good Food Box. For a reasonable fee, people can order a monthly box of food. The fee is $15 for the large, $10 for the medium and $5 for the small box. This program is open to everyone and there is no financial criteria for participating. Community Care has pamphlets that outline what is contained in each size box. The box of food has a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables. It is a good base from which to make healthy nutritious meals.
INFO FOR SENIORS
DEBBIE MACDONALD MOYNES
The Good Food Box is offered by the Community Development Council of Quinte. It is a program that aims to lower your grocery bill by buying bulk fresh
fruits and vegetables. Each box contains a variety of high quality, fresh, nutritious fruits and vegetables. Stock depends on which are in season or available at the best value. The bulk purchase savings are then passed directly on — right to the people who purchase the Good Food Box. If you would like to participate in this program all you have to do is place an order (along with a cash payment) at one of the Host Sites by the first day of the month. Seniors are welcome to stop in at the Community Care office in The Armoury at 206 Main Street in Picton to place an order. The Good Food Box is ready for pick up on the third Thursday of each month at the 67 King Street office of Community Living Prince Edward. If you live

Markâ€™s Friday crew gives new meaning to barbershop music Impromptu jam session draws growing crowds Chad Ibbotson
It started with a single guitar strum. Then another joined, and another, and another. Now â€” three months later â€” the Friday afternoon jam sessions at Mark's Barbershop in Picton regularly feature more than a dozen local musicians. Standing outside the barbershop on a chilly February Friday, owner Mark Redmond says the sessions evolved organically. Having just finished a trim while the rest of the guys got their guitars tuned, Redmond welcomes another customer outside the door. â€œGet in, get your coat off, or sing a song â€” whatever,â€? he says. No less than 10 people are piled into the cozy shop; a Nascar flag and pictures of hotrods line the walls. Wires, microphone stands, and tapping toes adorn the polished hardwood floor. It all started with longtime friend Peter Rea, Redmond says. He says he's known Rea 10 years and it was he who taught Redmond to play. â€œWhen he gets his hair cut he'll show me some songs and play â€” he's got his own band. Next thing you know he's got his own buddy Mark Davis coming in singing with him, and another, and another,â€? he says. â€œIt just kept getting bigger and bigger and bigger. This is nothing, last Friday there was 14 in there.â€? Pointing inside the door, he enthusiastically shows off a group of musicians playing away. These include Rea, Matti Kopamees, Fred Hall, Bud
trIm to a tune From left, Markâ€™s Barbershop owner Mark Redmond gives Ian Roy a trim while Bill Young, Mark Davis, Terry Spilchen, Bud
Gregory, Fred Hall, Peter Rea, Matti Kopamees, play a tune. At right, fan and frequent barbershop patron Melvin Cory enjoys the song. For the last three months Fridayâ€™s cut customers have been invited to enjoy and join in with a growing number of musicians who play at the shop. (Chad Ibbotson/Gazette staff)
Gregory, Terry Spilchen, Davis (who Redmond calls Ed Sullivan), Bill Young, and Eric Pilgrim. He said others, including local musician Drew Ackerman, often join in too. â€œI play too, if I'm not busy,â€? says Redmond. â€œI love it.â€? The music now has a regular time slot at the Main Street shop. From 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. every Friday, it's 50s, 60s, and country music on the docket. Redmond is adamant about this. â€œI love the oldies, eh. We'll do some rock stuff, but not too often,â€? he says. Not only does the music have a regular time slot, it also has a regular fan â€” Melvin Cory.
â€œMelvin, he comes every Friday. That's his chair, I've got it reserved for him because he just loves it,â€? says Redmond. â€œHe gets his hair cut here, but every Friday â€” regardless if he needs a haircut or not â€” he's here at 12:30 waiting for them to start.â€? Aside from Cory, Redmond says all his customers enjoy the show. â€œThey love it,â€? he says.

Pilgrim says the barbershop is a good place to meet good people and that there should be more places like Mark's.

He said word got around that a few musicians were playing at the barbershop and he decided to join in. â€œWe've got all walks of music, all levels of music â€” it's just phenomenal,â€? he says. One of the best things about it, says Pilgrim, is

Redmond says the only goal for the group is to have a little fun. Neither he, or any of his customers, has heard live music being played at a barbershop, he says.

Requests from libraries and Regent Theatre receive support from majority of councillors
GRANTS, from page 1
These included a $30,000 request from the County Community Foundation, a $14,000 request from the Prince Edward County Arts Council, and a $60,000 request from the Glenwood Cemetery Board. A $5,000 request from Volunteer & Information Quinte was at first referred to later budget discussions, but council reconsidered and voted down the request as it had come in after the community grants funding deadline other organizations had been held to. In the same vein, a request from the local Kinsmen Club to waive hall rental fees was simply received. A group hoping to begin a search for Avro Arrow test
models in Lake Ontario this summer had their request to waive docking fees during the duration of the search denied due to a lack of information. The issues which seemed to have the attention of most of the spectators at Shire Hall were that of the Library budget and the Regent Theatre's funding request. Library board chair Phil Ainsworth repeatedly called the library budget â€œbare bones,â€? and said the budget would actually be going down were it not for salary increases. â€œThe budget has been looked at very hard by the board. In past years we've gone through and done refinements and we continue to do refinements, but we really are to the point where

we're focusing on a barebones operation,â€? he said. Ainsworth said the library also won't be getting a couple of grants which had traditionally lowered the budget line. Councillor Alec Lunn commended the board on keeping the budget down. â€œYou've done a great job of holding the line,â€? he said. Lunn said libraries are a provincially mandated service and one that is important to the social fabric of any society. â€œIt provides a lot more than simply access to information,â€? Lunn said. â€œLibraries are fundamental to society, it's not some frill.â€? Councillor Jamie Forrester was concerned the library budget continues to grow and didn't support the

ment of mythology. Monday night, Ryerson Universityâ€™s professor Patrice Dutil will share some of the knowledge he has built up about Champlain. Dutil also serves as the president of the Champlain Society of Canada. It was noted he developed extraordinary navigational and cartography skills at a young age; he was able to depict his many travels in published accounts; and he was said to have a deep interest in Aboriginal culture and learning the customs of the natives where he visited, including those living in the Quinte region.
Nearly 400 years after his voyages to the wilderness of the country that would become Canada, explorer Samuel de Champlain remains a mysterious figure. Historian Peter Lockyer is promoting his next History Night at the Regent lecture Monday with that premise. The French explorer has no known birth date, the location of his grave following his death in Quebec City in Christmas 1625 is unclear, and the authenticity of an astrolabe discovered in a farmerâ€™s field near Cobden that some believe was his early navigational instrument is still an unproven ele-

Paid for by the Government of Ontario
substantially over the last few years by increasing the range of programming. Mayor Peter Mertens supported the $40,000 request, saying the Regent is a â€œjewel for Picton.â€? â€œWe are fortunate, thank God, that we have somebody that runs it,â€? he said. While councillor Terry Shortt said he appreciated the work of volunteers in operating the building, he said it's council's job to control spending. Shortt advocated for the request to be advanced to later budget discussions for more in-depth discussion. â€œWe're tasked with the job of trying to pinch pennies here. With the financial position we're in we have have to take a serious look at these (requests),â€? he said. Further budget discussions are scheduled for March 18-21.

addition of the $25,000 for salary contingency. â€œI'm not even sure if I'm going to support the (library) budget overall. A 2.5 per cent increase over last year may be due to salaries, but I think we really have to take a hard look. Every year this goes up and up and up,â€? he said. Both library requests were approved by a wide margin. A chorus of cheers rang out when council ultimately approved the $40,000 request of the Regent Theatre. Regent Theatre board of directors member Bob Schroen said â€œvolunteer burnoutâ€? is a very real problem at this point for the theatre as volunteers are behind every service the Regent provides. He said the funding would help offset that through hiring an executive director to take on the role of operating the business. â€œOur focus this year is to hire an executive director â€”
Through his travels, Champlain earned the legacy of being the â€œFather of New France.â€? Mondayâ€™s event will take place at 7 p.m. with tickets available in advance through the Regent Theatre box office, by phone at 613-476-8416, or on the web at www.TheRegentTheatre.org. Lockyer also announced this week that a proposed season finale featuring presenters from Gettysburg, Pennsylvania talking about the economics of history will be postponed until the fall at the presentersâ€™ request. -Staff

Both new and old forced air heating systems need some attention to help keep them running smoothly and efficiently during the heating season. Even though you may have a relatively new system, a regular check and maintenance is important. With the sensitivity and complexity of modern controls, even small changes in a setting can have a significant detrimental effect on the function and life of a unit. Here are a few tips to keep your system running smoothly and help save on fuel consumption.

dampers on room registers are in the open position and not blocked by furniture or drapes. While a properly designed and installed heating system should provide uniform heat distribution throughout the house, in some cases a diverter or booster fan may be needed to improve distribution. • Consider an annual service contract with a local heating contractor, especially if your system is fueled by an oil burner. A qualified service technician will clean the burners and the heating surfaces; check for back drafting (which can create a carbon monoxide hazard), check for balanced air distribution; check safety controls; and lubricate motors and fan if required. In my business I see the Good, the Bad and the Ugly, and without a doubt the biggest fault I find is lack of maintenance. Your heating system constitutes a significant expense, if you look after it, it can give you many years of reliable service.

To conserve energy during the active part of the day, it is best to set the thermostat at a reasonable comfort level and leave it alone rather than continuously adjusting it. • To further conserve fuel, install an electronic programmable thermostat to automatically raise and lower temperatures according to your family’s schedule while everyone is out during the day and while sleeping at night. • Dirt is the biggest enemy of your home's heating and cooling system. It can waste fuel and drastically lower efficiency. Dirt affects all three basic components of the system, so cleaning is the most important part of regular maintenance. Check the filter at least monthly during the heating (and cooling) season. Permanent, cleanable filters should be cleaned often; disposable type filters should be replaced when dirty. • Make sure all heat supply

Home Buyers are looking for updated kitchens, gorgeous backyards, and open floor plans on the top of their wish lists, but making an emergence are those features of the eco-friendly home. Clearly, green living is something buyers and sellers are talking about, and will continue to grow with time, as you can see with the rise of solar panels on more and more homes. However, to some homeowners, the idea of going green is fraught with concerns about spending more as first thoughts often turn to the installation of expensive items like solar panels. And in some cases, they are correct; not all green updates make sense. Before you begin to make any changes, it is important to understand what prospective buyers want, and even so more important, what they are willing to spend on these green improvements. Buyers regard green improvements that make their home healthier, and more comfortable a wise purchasing decision. As well as upgrades that will save on operating costs. It is said the average household spends nearly $1,900. a year

on utility bills, water and energy-efficiency are tangible benefits that are easy to measure. In fact, a green home can cut consumers’ bills by 25 percent! Buyers may be more willing to spend on an energyh R efficient home because they A know that they will be savw s ing money on operating costs in the long run. So where do you start? The internet is full of suggestions of making your home more energy efficient with products and appliances that can help reduce high energy bills, improve comfort and lessen the environmental impact. As much as half of the energy used in your home goes to heating and cooling. An inefficient heating system not only leaves your pockets empty, it leaves your family shaking cold during the winter months. If your heating system is twentyfive years old, it may be time to replace it. While installing a new high-efficiency furnace may cost you a few thousand dollars, it’s an update that buyers will appreciate in the purchase of their home. It’s an update that they don’t need to do while first moving into a home. Other, smaller improvements include installing a programmable thermostat, which can save up to $150 per year. There are some clever thermostats available that work with your schedule and turn on prior to your returning home, or can be adjusted through your smart phone. Another competitive edge a seller can give their home against other homes on the market is upgrading
showerheads, toilets, and sinks that are 20 years or older. Upgrades such as lowflow toilet can also trim about $90 a year off a water bill. Most buyers appreciate appliances in the sale of their home. Appliances account for nearly 13 percent of a household’s energy costs, with refrigeration, cooking and laundry at the top of the list. Consider energy-star appliances which use far less energy than older models. Not only does this appeal to the green buyer, but as well as cosmetically in the viewing of your home. Seal air leaks around windows and doors to prevent energy losses. Replace old light bulbs with energy star- qualified bulbs. Consider planting trees near windows to provide shade, reduce the need for interior cooling. If your home is currently on the market, or if you’re getting ready to put it on the market, it is important to do everything you can to give it a competitive edge. Selecting some, or all, of these ecofriendly home improvements can give buyers peace of mind knowing they won’t have to invest time and money in putting together and operating a more efficient, lower impact, more comfortable home.

Dukes lined up for playoff opener tonight in Kingston Abrams downplays rivalry with first-round foes from Kingston Jason Parks
Don't try to tell Wellington Dukes coach and general manager Marty Abrams that there is any type of special hatred or loathing reserved by his club for the Kingston Voyageurs. Abrams made it quite clear that in spite of the upcoming quarterfinal series between his club and the darlings of the Limestone City, the Wellington Dukes have one team and one team only in their heart when it comes to rivalries. “Our main rival is Trenton. The idea that there's a rivalry between Kingston and Wellington is completely driven by one side and that's Kingston,” Abrams said this week. The Dukes bench boss figures that as his club has had exponential success (both playoff and otherwise) over the past decade, the club has picked up several rivalries that were built up by the opposing team. “In speaking with (former Cobourg Cougars coach) Wayne Marchment, he was saying that we were their main rivals and that it was intense every time we played them. We've had series with Markham and Aurora and some people have tried to call those teams our rivals. As you are successful, you generate more enemies. It doesn't matter who we would have
starting Point Dukes forward Cam Nicoll steps in to win a faceoff during a recent home game against the Newmarket Hurricanes. His coach, Marty Abrams, says the Dukes are more concerned with executing their game plan and winning than the team they are playing, be they declared rivals or not. (Adam Bramburger/Gazette staff)
played this first round, someone would have tried to call it a rivalry. We aren't too wound up about that, we are wound up with trying to win games,” Abrams stated. Playing the Vees in the first round is akin to play-
ing the Cougars or the Lindsay Muskies said the coach. “I've had a lot more games against (Lindsay head coach) Paul Matucci that were heated and intense then I've had against Kingston,” said Abrams. “We just go for-
ward and if (the Vees) need to do that to sell tickets then that's what they need to do.” In terms of upending the third-seeded Vees, the sixth-seeded Dukes are going to need their special teams to come through. On the penalty kill, that
should not be a problem for Wellington. With the second-best penalty killing unit in the OJHL, Wellington has done a fine job calmly erasing most infractions handed their way. However, even with a
success rate of 88.9 per cent, limiting Kingston's power-play opportunities will be a key factor. “I think for us, we need to stay out of the penalty box and need to limit their power-play time. Their power play carried them over the past 12 games (in which the Vees won 10 games) and we've identified that,” Abrams said. On the flip side, Wellington's power play has been a sore spot all season and will need to come through for the locals if they have any shot at an upset. Worst in the OJHL at 13.8 per cent, Abrams said the Dukes need to keep it simple when they get the man advantage. “We need our power play to deliver at the right time and the fact we've won 29 games in an unbelievably competitive conference with a non existent power play, is really staggering,” Abrams said. “We worked on it more this season then the last 12 years and guys are trying to over think it. We need to put pucks on net, drive to those dirty areas and keep it simple.” The series kicks off tonight in Kingston at 7 p.m. And Wellington hosts Game 2 Friday evening at 7:30 p.m. The rest of the series is scheduled as follows: Game 3 @ Kingston Sun. March 3 at 5 p.m., *Game 4 @ Wellington Tues. March 5 at 7:30 p.m., *Game 5 @ Kingston Thurs. March 7 at 7 p.m., *Game 6 @ Wellington March 8 at 7:30 p.m. And *Game 7 @ Kingston Sunday March 10 at 3 p.m. *If necessary.
Wellington shuts down Whitby 3-0 to end regular season on winning note Netminder Lavigne sharp when needed to turn away 24 Fury shots in shutout Jason Parks
In terms of a regular season capper, you would be hard pressed to beat the Wellington Dukes 3-0 win over the Whitby Fury on Friday night. Wellington (29-22-4) was sound defensively, limiting the Fury to just 24 shots on Dukes rookie starter Hayden Lavigne, who picked up his fourth shutout of the season. The Dukes now head into their playoff series against the Kingston Voyageurs on the heels of a win and Wellington coach and general manager Marty Abrams is pleased the club is playing with some positive momentum. “We came in after the
first period and said 'Let's erase that 20 minutes' and we played a real solid playoff-style game after that,” Abrams said. “We kept our mistakes to a minimum, did a good job at limiting their chances, and when we did break down, Hayden was there for us.” Neither team was able to generate much offence in the first as the shots favoured the Fury 7-5. But in the second, the Dukes unleashed a barrage of 24 pucks at Whitby starter Josh Hickey and the locals would get all the offence they would need. Rookie Joe McKeown bagged his ninth of the season on the power play at 1:56 and that goal would stand up as the game winner.
Support local hockey
Captain Jan Kaminsky converted a Spencer Turcotte feed in the last half of the period to ensure the Dukes had a two goal cushion going into the final frame. In the third in what was his final regular season junior hockey game, Craig Campbell bagged his 31st of the campaign thanks to a nice Brody Morris pass at the 15:46 mark. The game proved to have a little bit of old and a little bit of new to it. In goal, the youngster Lavigne (9-7-1, 2.48 GAA, 0.922 SP) showed why he's been garnering serious NCAA interest as of late. “He's had a great season,” Abrams said. “That's a a stellar season for a 16 -
year-old goalie in our league and he's going to be fine in whatever route he chooses.” On the other end, Campbell continued to elevate his NCAA stock. A two-year OJHL veteran, the Strathroy native has put together a standout season for Wellington in spite of a serious shoulder injury that shelved him for all of December. In his final 45 OJHL regular season games, Campbell potted 31 goals and added 23 assists for 54 points. Those stats tell part of the story, but Abrams will tell you the rest.

There was a sea of bright young faces in bright costumes Saturday on the concourse of the RIM Park Manulife Financial Sportsplex in Waterloo. Everywhere one looked at the provincial short track speed skating championships last weekend, there was youthful potential â€” maybe an Olympian here or an international competitor waiting down the next aisle. Then, in the midst of all of them was Paul Pickard. The vice-principal at PECI during the week, it wouldnâ€™t be unusual to see Pickard out volunteering to help with youth, but one might be surprised to learn that he was in Waterloo to skate with those athletes and to post official times that would count. â€œI was skating in the open group, everyone in that group was basically 1823 and then there was me,â€? said Pickard. â€œIt was a real privilege to skate with these guys.â€? Pickard managed to qualify for the provincials in December, when he placed second in a qualifying race and booked an automatic pass to the cham-

pionship, where he was the only masters skater (above age 30 and not a professional) competing. Pickard said it was a somewhat humbling experience in one sense, but it was also a thrill to share the ice with that many accomplished skaters â€” particularly in relay races where skaters were matched up into even teams and working together to win races.
During his first provincial race, Pickard took home a respectable eighth place among 500-metre skaters in his category. He also skated the 1,000-metre race and, finally, the 5,000-metre relay. He said skating with the younger skaters allowed him one of his best weekends of skating. â€œI didnâ€™t have a personal best this weekend, but I had

Pickard skates at provincial short-track championships in Waterloo
some consistently higher speeds,â€? said Pickard, who indicated his goal is to continue to get as faster while maintaining his control on the ice. Pickardâ€™s passion for speed skating can be traced back about six years to when his daughter decided she was going to stop swimming competitively to try a new sport. It was speed skating and Pickard decided heâ€™d be by her side to try it out. Pickard said the sport allowed him to satisfy the competitive fires he had burning in him after years of playing other sports like hockey, but it also introduced a welcoming atmosphere for competitors of ally ages. â€œItâ€™s still a relatively small community of people involved,â€? he said. â€œYou have a chance to meet a bunch of different people when youâ€™re sharing a dressing room and everybody supports and cheers each other on. It makes it a special community.â€? Pickard plans to continue training with his club, the Quinte Blades, in preparation for his next major competition, which will come in Cicero, N.Y. in April. There, heâ€™s going to take part in the International Mastersâ€™ Short Track Games and he has set his eyes on a higher personal goal this time around. â€œIâ€™d really like to come away with a medal in my age class,â€? he said. Long term, he indicated heâ€™s hopeful to continue to improve his skating and his times and looking forward to hopefully skating at the provincial level once again.

CARDS OF THANKS
The family of Sidna F. McKenzie would like to thank family, friends and neighbours for their expressions of sympathy, cards, flowers, food, donations to charity, and prayer at our time of loss. We would especially like to thank Bethesda WA for their kindness, and Martha and family for many years of friendship. Thank you, Harold. When my late husband and I started talking about retirement we both agreed on the County. My family all lived the other side of the ferry but still we decided on Picton because of the hospital. Leon didn't use the hospital until 2 weeks before his death, but I use it regularly due to some health issues I have. My first visit to Picton hospital was February 2001, I awoke to see the smiling faces of Leon and nurse Marg Easterbrook. I don't remember all the nurses names along the way but they have all been so wonderful both in Picton and in Belleville. Let's support our nurses. Shirley Kay.
Thank You to everyone who did such wonderful things for me when I was sick in K.G.H. and when I returned home for Garry and I. They are too numerous to mention. Since I cannot mention everyone, I'll thank everyone as a group. Sincerely, Vaunga Foster
The family of Mike Bolton would like to thank all of our wonderful family and friends for their support during Mike's brief illness and the time since his passing. Your cards, notes, flowers, donations of food, telephone calls and hugs have meant so much during this very difficult time. To the nurses of PECMH ER, thank you for your exceptional care and making sure you kept our spirits up during a long difficult day. To Brandi, thank you for your expressions of care and concern. To Dr. Colby, a big thanks for making the right decision and making sure Mike's journey to KGH was a safe one. To Jennifer, our wonderful Paramed nurse, thank you for your gentle touch and words of wisdom and to the PSW's, thank you for everything you did for Mike during his brief sojourn at home - it would not have been possible without you. To Dr. Hawyard-Stewart and Cathy, thank you for being there for us. To the guys at Whattam's Funeral Home, thank you for helping and encouraging Erin and I to think "outside the box" so that Mike's final great adventure would be a reflection of him. To Padre Stan, thankyou for your kind words and beautiful spirit. To all of you, your kindness will never be forgotten. Janice and Erin.
DICKSON- Kevin Robert April 1, 1964-February 27, 2011 Too late I searched for you, my son But our glad reunion was not to be. Too soon your life on earth was done But we shall meet in eternity. Forever in my broken heart. Irene FROST-HINEMAN, Velma, May 15, 1933 - February 27, 2003 We cannot control the movement of time Or the destinies of those we love But we can take comfort in knowing That those who have lived in our hearts are never really gone For as long as we keep them with us, in our hearts and our thoughts, they will be with us always. For love which is timeless, never ceases to exist. Love forever, David. HENNESSY- Merton Stillman. August 1919-February 2012. Gone from sight But not our hearts. With hope and faith We will meet again someday. Love always & forever Larry & Jeanne, grandchildren, Danielle & Steve, Amy & Domingo, Chris & friend, Amber & Kevin, Tony & Elaine, Wayne & Tara and great grandchildren Dustin, Cheyanne, Brody, Joshua, Amedia & Sabinia.
In loving memory of our beloved son, KEVIN ROBERT DICKSON April 1st, 1964 - February 27th, 2011
Our son Kevin was an answer to prayer. (1st Samuel 1 verse 27). The Lord blessed us with a gift of a baby boy who brought us much joy. His loving and caring ways, and sense of humor endeared us to him. His passing has left such a void in our lives that only he could fill. We miss him more than words can tell. Mum & Dad “The Weaver” My life is but a weaving Between my Lord and me, I cannot choose the colours He worketh steadily. Ofttimes He weaveth sorrow, And I, in foolish pride Forget He sees the upper And I, the underside. Not till the loom is silent And the shuttles cease to fly Shall God unroll the canvas And explain the reason why. The dark threads are as needful In the Weaver’s skillful hand As the threads of gold and silver In the pattern He has planned. Author Unknown

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 28, 2013
Ten years ago today God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be, so he put His arms around you and whispered, “Come to Me” With tearful eyes we watched you and saw you pass away and although we love you dearly we could not make you stay. Not a day passes that we don’t wish we could see you just one more time, For all we want is to see your struggle over and you back in your prime. Those joyous days filled with cards and laughter, We will remember them forever and after. The lessons you taught us will never be forgotten, As for those days I spent with you were the best present I have gotten. The strength and determination you possessed I wish I could borrow, The challenges and struggles you had throughout your life taught us all to never give up. You gave us determination to always go on and fight through the tough times. As we talk to you at the graveside we feel your heart break and hear your teardrops fall when we talk about the many grandchildren and greatgrandchildren that are growing up so fast, mising you. Your compassion and empathy towards others, even when you were at your worst, has been instilled in each of us to be better, do better. You are in our heats, always love, never forgotten and sadly missed. Your daughter Daphne, Brad and son Patrick, your many grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

A possible delay in the Ministry of Education's release of the Grants for Students Needs funding formula could have an impact on the Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board's budget development process. In a 2013-2014 budget timeline update, superintendent Dave Rutherford told school board trustees Monday evening that in order to meet the June 30 deadline in which all school boards in Ontario must submit a balanced budget proposal, the GSN funding announcement should be released by March 31. However, Rutherford and senior staff are anticipating a one to two-week delay by the province in releasing the formula which helps board administration pin down approximately how much to expect in terms of per-pupil funding. Rutherford said the delay will “really push us” in terms of delivering a balanced budget prior to the June
deadline. The board has overcome delays before as last year's funding formula was slow coming from the Ministry but the board was still able to set its $192 million budget prior to the deadline.
COMMUNITY INPUT SOUGHT
The board is inviting community members and parents to have their say next month. The Board is hosting a series of meetings throughout the region in late March designed to actively engage and seek input from interested parties. Locally, the meeting in Prince Edward County will be held at Prince Edward Collegiate Institute on Tuesday, March 26 starting at 6:30 p.m. The meetings are a part of the Board's Achievement in Motion (AIM) System plan. Board spokesperson Kerry Donnell said Historically, direct input from community members and parents have been minimal.
Return to region a highlight for McGall
DIRECTOR, from page 1
From 1983 to 2002, McGall worked for the HamiltonWentworth District School Board in a variety of roles including teacher, department head, vice-principal and principal. He was active in the leadership development program in Hamilton, and was chair of the governance committee responsible for combining policies when Hamilton and Wentworth amalgamated. McGall returned to the Quinte area in 2002 to become principal at Quinte Secondary School. In 2004 he was appointed to superintendent of curriculum and schools, followed by a 2007 appointment to superintendent of human resources and schools, where he served until his aforementioned promotion. Board chair Dwayne Inch said it was with mixed emotions that he accepted
McGall's letter of intention Monday evening. Both county residents have formed a unique bond over the past two years that's evident to most observers of the board. Inch called McGall a true friend and mentor to himself and all the trustees. “Rob McGall is a champion for public education and our school board,” Inch said. “We appreciate all he has done for us, he has been a man of his word, and has gotten us to the goals we've aimed at and direction we want to be in.” McGall joked and said he was pleased that the trustees had accepted his notice as he was told by his wife not to come home without it being accepted. “So I get to go home after the meeting,” he laughed. McGall said he has enjoyed and cherished his 30 years in public education that can be divided

“Yet, parents/guardians are essential partners who play an important role in students being successful at school and in students becoming contributing citizens,” Donnell said. The meetings will have two goals: to provide an opportunity for trustees and school superintendents to meet and engage parents and community members and to have a voice in school board planning by learning about the 2012-2013 district priorities providing input on the 2013-2014 district priorities; and commenting as to whether the school board is on the right track, what it should start doing, stop doing and/or continue doing. “We are a public board and we are a service organization to students. we want public input on where we are going. We want to know what the public feels are priority items are are we on the right track and it can range from programming to facility use and beyond,” she said.

into two sections-his time with the Hamilton-Wentworth board and his final 11 years with the local board. The Belleville native called it a very special opportunity to return to the Quinte area and was happy that the board granted him the ability to be a principal at Quinte Secondary School, a learning institution McGall attended as a youth. In terms of his time with the senior administration team, McGall said he would look back with pride at the goals and accomplishments reached by the board. “I'm proud of the work we've been doing as a school board” McGall told trustees and senior staff. “We are a service organization that has a focus on students and we try the best to provide the best programs in spite of the challenges we and all other school boards face as they relate to finances and declining enrollment.” Finalizing, McGall said he appreciated the trustees sincerity and clear commitment to public education and thanked the senior team for their talents, professionalism and commitment. The board is expected to discuss McGall's forthcoming departure and the need for a new director in upcoming meetings.

Pirates sweep Amherstview convincingly in opening playoff round Port Hope to visit to start league final Saturday night Chad Ibbotson
net-front frenzy Geoff Cleminson of the Picton Pirates gets a backhand shot off on Amherstview Jets goal-

the final frame. Bolton and Kearns would score in the third while Dan Chadwick and Brandon Gilmour answered for Amherstview, but Picton took the 2â€“0 series lead. Game 3 saw the Pirates again get the early lead. With Chadwick in the box for hooking veteran Pirates forward Brian Bunnett fired home a powerplay goal to make it 1â€“0. At 9:22 Bunnett took the puck from Kenny Murduff and Levi George and doubled the lead. Jesse Stone's power-play tally at 13:03 cut the lead in half, but three minutes later Bunnett completed the hattrick and the Pirates took a 3â€“1 lead into the second. Woodward said Bunnett's presence give the Pirates, â€œa whole new dimension.â€? â€œHe's a big a big power forward with high-end skill. He has a ton of experience playing in the Royal Bank Cup with the Wellington Dukes,â€? he said. â€œHe brings a lot of leadership to the table and he was a dominant player (in Game 3). He wouldn't be denied.â€? The shots were close in the second period with Picton holding a slight 12-11 advantage but, despite some chances, neither team found the back of the net in the middle frame. The next goal didn't come until the dwindling minutes of the third when Cassidy Bruni made things interesting with an Amherstview goal at 18:26. The Pirates didn't roll over though. Under a minute later Smith restored the two-goal cushion and Picton took a commanding three-game lead in the series.
Napanee hires former Duke to coach
Longtime junior hockey fans in the area might see a familiar face on the bench when the Napanee Raiders visit the Picton Pirates next season. The Raiders announced Tuesday night that they had hired former Wellington Dukes forward Mike Hartwick as the teamâ€™s new head coach. Hartwick had skated with the Dukes as a 15-year-old in the 19891990 season before going on
to a three-year OHL career with Hamilton, Guelph, Windsor, and Ottawa, then a stint as a professional in Germany. Hartwick now teaches in Napanee. Joining him on the bench will be Randy Holmes, a former Kingston Voyageur with a lengthy pro hockey playing resume, and returning assistant coach Scott Slack. -Staff
There weren't any nerves before Game 4 in Amherstview, said Woodward. He said it's a veteran group with plenty of playoff experience under their belts. He said the game plan didn't change for Game 4. â€œWe tried to play a hardworking, simple road game and I thought we had maybe out best effort of the
series,â€? he said. â€œAmherstview battled hard. When you have a team with their backs against the wall, they're going to throw everything they've got at you and they did just that early on.â€? It was a tight first period with no scoring and each team registering nine shots on goal. Both teams looked to limit mistakes and the
only penalties of the frame were coincident minors to Adam Alcorn and George for roughing. The second period was a different story. Just one minute in Evan Greer got Picton on the score sheet. Kearns followed suit with a tally at 3:22. Cody Stapely stopped the run with an Amherstview goal at 5:58, but the
