The only things missing from Prince Edward County’s own three-bed residential hospice centre Saturday were the actual beds and the patients who would occupy them. Otherwise, under sunny skies, there everything one could have asked for to open such an anticipated facility for local families to care for their dying loved ones. Volunteers and contributors packed in tightly on the front lawn as dignitaries took their turns saluting their collective efforts to get the centre off the ground in short order. Families who had worked with Hospice Prince Edward in the past and several onlookers joined them just to s hare in the community spirit that proved to the South East Local Health Integration Network that Picton was the best place for its first residential hospice pilot. They were part of a steady stream of people. Throughout the day, wellwishers took their turns to wander through the home, completely renovated by Loyalist Contractors and local tradespeople in just under six months. Hospice Prince Edward

(Adam Bramburger/Gazette staff) chair Birgit Langwisch indicated it was important to have people on site to mark the moment, despite it not being a starting or an ending point in the project. “We are not at the end of our journey. We're pausing in this moment to really celebrate the place we've come to and to celebrate the open-

ing,” she said. “With a massive project like this maybe the reality is you never come to the end completely. There are still funds to raise and steps to take.” That said, she acknowledged much has happened since Picton Rotary Club president Jim Wait approached Hospice to start

dialogue about the project early in 2011. Volunteers with both organizations worked on committees to secure a building, to plot out policies for the delivery of care, to fundraise, and to promote the project. Private families put their money forward and the community did like-

wise through Hikes for Hospice, coffee parties, and a successful gala last fall. It was at that gala when the dream really started to take hold as Hospice Lennox and Addington announced it had purchased the home at 40 Downes Avenue with the goal of being operational by this summer. Since September, renovations at the home have been ongoing endlessly, while officials with Hospice did their own heavy lifting in convincing their funders the time had come. One of the key pillars of strength throughout that process, Langwisch said, has been executive director Nancy Parks. Particularly in recent days after moving with her staff into the centre and seeing plenty of traffic through its doors, Parks said she’s experienced her share of smiles and tears. The smiles came from hearing volunteers — some who have been with the organization for nearly 20 years — say they’d never thought Saturday’s history-making ribbon cutting would ever happen. The tears came from hearing from the families Hospice has served and learning about their impressions of the site. “What brings tears to my eyes is how our families were saying, 'How I wish this home was here for my loved one,’ she said.

Ontario's Lt.-Gov. David Onley was treated to a pair of drastically different operations when he came to tour a pair of Prince Edward County wineries last Thursday. Prior to handing out the third annual Lieutenant Governor's Awards for Excellence in Ontario Wines, Onley led a tour group of about 20 from Toronto's consular corps to visit Exultet Estates and Huff Estates, the wineries who would help Prince Edward County to its first multiple-win competition. Exultet's 2011 Blessed Chardonnay and Huff's 2007 Cuvée Peter F. Huff were among 12 winners selected in a blind taste test

of more than 225 Ontario VQA wines entered in the contest. At about 10:30, Onley's entourage rolled out to Exultet's location, somewhat off the beaten path on Royal Road south of Milford. There, the lieutenantgovernor was told how Gerry and Lia Spinosa were able to take a historic 1875 cheese factory and turn it into a family-run, small production success. The tasting at Exultet took place right inside a modest production facility and on a simple patio overlooking their vineyard. Lunch would follow at the regal Huff Estates, among the county’s most visited wineries.

Designation would set guidelines and principles for future building and renovations on Main Street through town

Picton Heritage Conservation District recommended for council’s approval Chad Ibbotson

Staff writer

Picton Main Street is one step closer to being designated a Heritage Conservation District. The Heritage Conservation District (HCD) plan and a motion to designate Picton Main Street under Part V of the Ontario Heritage Act received strong support from councillors at last week's committee-of-the-whole meeting and was recommended for council approval at its July 23 meeting. The plan would designate buildings and other features

along Picton Main Street as having heritage value and sets guidelines and design principles that will manage any alterations to existing buildings and any future development. The district would cover Main Street from Lake Street to the harbour. At least a couple occupants of Picton Main Street were opposed to the plan. Canadian Society of Marine Artists director Betty Ann Anderson and Naval Marine Archive, The Canadian Collection executive director Paul Adamthwaite both spoke in opposition to the

proposed district. “Within the district the property owners are losing their rights and freedoms because of the location. There is no option to not be included,” Anderson said. She said the county and Picton both already have a history of celebrating and promoting heritage. She said people in the municipality want a vibrant community, but questioned the need for new regulations to spur economic growth. “Why is it inherent to change the legal status and not allow current rulings to hold,” she said. She said she spent some time researching heritage districts — including the district in downtown Port Hope — and found that heritage districts often tax businesses at a higher rate. She said general expenses are higher for building supplies and there are a lot of restrictions. Adamthwaite said both he and Anderson care about preserving heritage. He said his concern was not with the end result, but with the process by which it would be achieved. “The limits of this district as defined in the plan do not respect local heritage. The district as shown includes three gas stations, two supermarkets, Kentucky Fried, McDonald's, Tim Hortons, and at least two large empty lots,” he told the committee last week. “There are 142 buildings in the plan. More than 40 per cent are non-contributing.” He called the approach “scattered” and “arbitrary.”

Adamthwaite said he also expects there to be a large cost to property owners through permits and professional fees if they do any work to their properties. Adamthwaite questioned whether there had been enough public consultation. “We went to all three meetings. There were more planning staff and consultants than there was public at all three meetings,” he said. However, the committee remained supportive Councillor Brian Marisett supported the HCD concept saying it's “long overdue.” He said the heritage district wouldn't be onerous for property owners. “The burden associated with (the district) is only going to be as burdensome as the council of the day wants to make it,” he said. “At the end of the day, in almost every case, council has the final say on the matter.”

He said in his years on council he's seen two heritage blocks and a significant heritage building in Picton removed. “In all three cases the properties are now vacant,” he said. Marisett said, had the district been in place, council and the municipality would have had more options when the fate of the buildings was being debated. Mayor Peter Mertens also supported the motion. He said he's heard very little criticism of the HDC plan. “I'm on the street pretty much every day at lunch time. The landlords, the owners of the properties aren't overly concerned because if they were concerned they would have made more effort to find out what exactly is going on,” he said. “They didn't do that, they had the opportunity many times and didn't do that.”

He said those who are most concerned are the business owners on Main Street. He said even they have been mostly positive. “They want to see a downtown vibrant, they want to see stores that are empty filled,” he said. “…To this point there's been only one business on the street that has ever provided comments to me that are negative and that's Paul Adamthwaite’s. Everyone else I've spoken to is positive.” Mertens said many businesses believe the district is going to beneficial for Picton. In terms of added regulations, Mertens applauded the consultants' work to mitigate a feeling of too much “red tape.” “I'm actually quite impressed with the consultants in the way they've gone to some great lengths to mitigate some of those requirements,” he said. “They're not just putting a format, they've actually thought about process and thought about how to make the process more workable.” He said the district is “the right thing to do for the Town of Picton.” “If you spend any time doing research into heritage districts — which I have done in the past — there's always a net gain in these communities in terms of the buildings, in terms of the direction,” he said. “It takes time in a lot of cases.” Picton BIA representatives also spoke in support of the plan.Th full plan is available on the County’s web site

She came to me early the next morning and said ‘Mommy, why is the TV missing?’ and I said 'Oh don't be so silly,’” Johnson said. But Olivia led her mother to the family room where an uneasy wave was about to wash over her mother. “I was in tears instantly,” Johnson said. “I thought it might have happened in the night while we were sleeping.” But soon the pieces started to come together. The television was missing the night before, meaning the burglars has struck sometime between 12 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. the afternoon prior.

Other than the 27-inch television, a few items were

A Picton woman is struggling for answers after her home was broken into and a number of items were taken in broad daylight. Kerrie Johnson is a single mother of two young children and she is at a loss to explain to her young ones why a person or persons would break into their King Street home Sunday July 7 and steal the family's groceries. “There was no mess, everything was carefully gone through, it seemed like it was all carefully planned,” Johnson told the Gazette. So meticulously crafted that Johnson didn't realize she and her children had been victimized until the next morning. Johnson came home from her job as a server at a downtown restaurant about 10 p.m. that day and simply went to bed. Her children, who had been in the care of their grandmother that day, were brought back to the home about 7:30 p.m. “My mom noticed the TV was gone and she asked the kids what was going on and Isaac told her ‘Mommy is getting a new one.' and she didn't think anymore of

missing as Johnson began to quickly take stock. They included her social insurance card and number of other forms of identification. Then, she went to her refrigerator to make the kids breakfast. “Bags of milk, frozen meat in the freezer — they took all kinds of groceries,” Johnson said. Thieves apparently gained access to the home from the west side of the building, cutting a screen and unlocking a latch to a side door. The other latch at the bottom of the door was ripped from the wall. But the thieves or thief

The small section of Lakeside Drive that has been debated by councillors and residents in recent weeks will remain a one-way road. Committee-of-the-whole voted to leave the 600-metre one-way section — which spans from Carnrike Road to Link Road in Hillier — unchanged after receiving another staff report suggesting the road continue as is. Lakeside Drive residents Gilles Robert and David Calnan were both pleased with the committee's decision. Both cited safety as their main concern in fighting to keep the one-way designation. “We're encouraged councillors voted to keep Lakeside Drive from Carnrike to Link Road as a one-way designation,” Robert said. “We

believe it's a safe measure at a reasonable cost. To make it otherwise raises issues of cost to change it to a two-way to make it safe. That's the issue we've brought all along.” Calnan agreed, adding that any development to widen the road would also limit residents' ability to access Consecon Lake. “Any development would impact negatively on our neighbourhood. The trees would be destroyed, we might lose access to our lakefront,” he said. “By and large we're interested in community safety and to keep the traffic flowing eastbound one way on Lakeside is a good decision.” He said Carnrike Road provides a safe alternate route and is just a short drive around the one-way section. In mid June councillors received a staff recommendation to leave the road unchanged for safety reasons but, with supporters on both sides in attendance, voted to have staff come back with more information before making a decision.

Last Thursday the committee received a staff report which outlines how various GPS and online mapping tools display the road, the cost of converting the road for two-way traffic, and recommendation to go with the status quo. The report says attempting to locate and advise every GPS map producer of a road change would be a “significant undertaking” and timing could be an issue. The report says the section was originally a twoway road, but says the existing road doesn't meet current safety standards with narrowness, poor intersection sight lines, and a drop off to the lake a key part of that. “Together these features combine to generate concern from staff in providing two way traffic flow in this area,” the report says. To make the road safe for two-way traffic the report says the road pavement would need to be widened to seven metres from its current width of just over four metres. The report says barrier protection such as guardrail would be required at any point where the road is closer than two metres to the drop off to the lake. It also

notes a professional would be required to design the road. Although the report says staff couldn't accurately estimate the total capital cost to bring the road to current two-way standards, it says the cost of the design professional alone would be in the range of $10,000-$12,000. Councillor Janice Maynard proposed an amendment to include funds in the next budget to upgrade the road for two-way traffic, but the amendment lost. Maynard said she was attempting to “compromise” with residents who wanted to keep the road as is. “The vast majority of people who use that road on a daily basis are still in favour of returning it to a two way,” she said. Councillor Terry Shortt supported the amendment. He said the one-way section is a “mistake” of the municipality. “That should not have happened,” he said. “… It was a temporary measure to begin with and its only worked marginally to this point. More time should be spent on correcting this mistake.”

Soap box derby tradition continues on Mill Street hill in Bloomfield Organizers make cars available for all young racers wishing to try course Jason Parks

Staff writer

Forget the roar on the Lakeshore, the real action was the thrill on Mill Street this weekend. The annual HallowellBloomfield recreation department's soap box derby was held in the village on Saturday with amateurs racers from all around coming to test the incline of Bloomfield's Mill Street. Event organizer and Bloomfield councillor Barry Turpin was happy with the turnout of children that came from all over-including Trenton and even an international participant.

Turpin told the Gazette community involvement was what drove events like the soap box derby. “It's great to have the community support for this event and the kids always have a great time,� Turpin said. “Anybody that wants to try it, we have free derby cars for them.� That was thanks to Chris Demille Excavating, Picton Home Hardware, the Prince Edward County fire department and Alex Goodfellow who all built carts for enthusiastic racers to test out. Test might have been the operative word on Satur-

day as some of the carts were unable to get out of first gear. “That's part of the testing process,� Turpin said with a laugh. “We will have them figured out for next year but the key is this is a very safe endeavour.� One of the racers raving about his run was Ronan Coyne of Louth, Ireland. The 12 year old was vis-

iting friends in Prince Edward County and said zooming down the Mill Street hill was “an awesome experience.� “I like playing racing car video games but this is the first time I've every done something like this. I really like it,� Coyne said. Afterwards, the racers were treated to free pizza at the Mill Street park.

Looking back in the

Picton Gazette 80 years ago — 1933

■ A cabin cruiser was badly damaged after a collision with the Glenora ferry. The cabin cruiser was travelling at about 15 miles an hour and its operators did not see the ferry crossing. The cabin cruiser suffered a large hole in the hull, but it did not take on water until a rope had been tied to it from the ferry. No one on either vessel was seriously injured. ■ Roy Dulmage, of South Bay, was named as the new principal of the school in Massasauga. He would be replaced as a teacher at the Demorestville school by Gordon Reid, of Milford. ■ N. Yanover & Sons announced its plans to liquidate the inventory of Picton’s W.A. Dayton Store, which used to be located next to the Armoury. Yanover bought the remaining stock upon Dayton’s retirement and elected to sell off the merchandise at bargain prices on location, rather than move it to Yanover’s own store

60 years ago — 1953

■ Picton declared a state of emergency when its town reservoir was completely depleted of water, leaving the RCSA station and Picton Heights entirely without water for about four hours. Water usage in town was suspended for two hours while the system was checked. The reservoir eventually began to fill again, taking six hours to reach capacity. Upon learning of the problem, caused by dry heat and external water use, Mayor H.J. McFarland ordered additional pumps to raise the system’s capacity 800,000 gallons (or 80 per cent) per day. ■ The residents of Bloomfield held a celebration to honour Hugh MacDonald and his wife, former residents who had moved to Ajax. MacDonald had served as reeve in the village and was active on many committees, while his wife was known for her musical abilities and her involvement in community causes.

40 years ago — 1973

■ The inaugural Picton Shoppers’ Festival was taking place with three days of fun and bargains promised by the Picton Merchants’ Association. Among the major events scheduled were an auction on Main Street, a tug-of-war between the police and fire departments, a street dance, bingo, and electronics raffles. ■ The Prince Edward County Museum was officially opened in the old St. Mary Magdalene Church. Anglican Bishop J.B. Creeggan, a former pastor there, was the featured guest speaker. Creeggan indicated he was particularly pleased the County kept the altar and sanctuary of the church preserved as it was left.

20 years ago — 1993

■ The Picton courthouse was to receive an $80,000 exterior renovation that would see its four huge columns replaced, new woodwork on the cupola on top of the roof, and cleaning of the limestone masonry. A restoration expert said the work came just in time as the wooden pillars were beginning to rot, forcing their concrete bases to crack. ■ Wellington town council told Wellington-on-the-Lake residents it did not have money allocated in its budget to extend sidewalks from Main Street west to the development. Given the nature of provincial funding for such projects, council said approval on any sidewalk project would likely take two years.

Poison ivy is out, wild parsnip is in

You can apparently eat it, but don’t touch it! The plant is wild parsnip, and with the frequent rains earlier this summer, its lush, tall and dense stands are easy to spot in roadside ditches as you drive along. On the farm, when wildflower guides were limited to eradication booklets, and what toxins to apply, we just called it wild celery as the compound leaves certainly did resemble those of celery, and the thick brittle stem looked crispy enough to serve with the vegetables from our garden. Only the roots are edible though. Right now, we can recognize wild parsnip easily by its large yellowish-green flat umbels. Weed guides said nothing about its darker side though – its ability to produce a rash, serious enough to make poison ivy pale by comparison. The plant was brought to North America by European settlers who grew it for its edible root. It is related to cow parsnip, water hemlock, water-parsnip, as well as today’s threat of the decade, giant hogweed. Interestingly, wild parsnip is also related to Queen Anne’s lace from which our familiar carrot was derived. All members of the parsley family, and most containing toxins in some form. In the case of wild parsnip, the threat is much the same as it is from giant hogweed. Something called phyto-photodermatitis. We can break down the term into more manageable syl-


lables to better understand what we are dealing with regarding this plant. Wild parsnip plants have chemicals called psoralens (more precisely, furocoumarins). This compound is very toxic to fish, and some compounds actually are intentionally deposited in streams in Indonesia to catch fish. So, we have an interaction between the plant (phyto) and light (photo) that induces skin (derm) inflammation (itis). Once these furocoumarins are absorbed by the skin, they are energized by UV light on both sunny and cloudy days. They then bind to our DNA and cell membranes, destroying the cells and skin. So, it’s not an allergic reaction like there is from contact with poison ivy, but rather, more like a chemical burn. You can liken it to a sun-

burn, but unlike sunburn that will affect exposed areas as a whole, phyto-photodermatitis is different. Because its reaction is triggered specifically by chemicals on the skin, only the skin affected by those toxins reacts when exposed to the light. Perspiration or otherwise wet skin, will speed up the absorption. What you end up with are unusual mosaics or streaks, reflecting where a damaged leaf or stem moved across the skin before exposure to sunlight. The affected area will redden and be followed by painful blisters that lead to a brown pigmentation, leaving scars that can last for years. Why is there a concern now, when the plant failed to raise any eyebrows in the past? Like all invaders from other countries, wild parsnip has decided that it likes our climate, and has been spreading into new territories with each passing year. Once a now and again encountered weed that popped up here and there in isolated patches, today carpets of wild parsnip can be found wherever it can get a toehold, thereby increasing the probability of exposure. Unlike another invasive European arrival, pale swallowwort (dog strangling vine), wild parsnip is a bit easier to control simply by being vigilant and digging it up whenever it is encountered. Mowing it repeatedly, if in a convenient location, may ultimately starve

the root stock in time and, if not, it will at least keep the plant from maturing and going to seed. Of course, the old time honoured method of covering patches of it with a dark tarp to prevent sunlight from reaching the growing plants is also a good method. If you do come in contact with wild parsnip and have advanced to the blister stage, relieving the burning symptoms first is a priority. Covering the area with a wet cloth will help. Calamine lotion is good for most things, so you might try that. See a doctor, of course, if the burns are extensive. Otherwise, keep applying the lotions and let it run its course. It will heal in time, but is apt to leave some unsightly scarring. The best advice is learning to recognize the plant in the first place, and avoiding it. Chances are, if you touch it lightly, nothing will happen. However, if the right combination of aggressive exposure to the plant, sunlight and moisture are present simultaneously, it may end up being a long haul for you.

Search halted for Rochester man whose yacht went aground at Point Petre

According to reports from the Associated Press, the search for a missing boater whose vessel ran aground at Point Petre Sunday were halted yesterday. U.S. Coast Guard officials said search efforts involving rescue personnel from both sides of the border were called off after 6,400 square miles of the lake were checked from air and from water. Earlier in the week, CFB Trenton’s 424 Squadron search and rescue unit continued to comb over eastern Lake Ontario with a Hercules aircraft searching for a missing man from the Rochester, New York

(Scott Johnston/Gazette staff) area. The search began Sunday afternoon after a man noticed that a 32-foot sailing vessel had run aground under full sail near Point Petre.

About an hour-and-a-half after that discovery, the Wellington Rescue Coast Guard Auxiliary was dispatched to scan the county’s south shore, while the Coast Guard sent a Griffon helicopter and its lifeboat Cape Hearne to search the area as well. The vessel was towed into Wellington harbour and kept under police surveillance until it was returned to New York on Monday. Reports indicate the vessel, named Persnickety, was registered to Rochester man Scott French, 53. Responders had checked the GPS on the boat to

discover the vessel was in Sodus Bay, N.Y. east of Rochester Saturday morning. The American reports indicated the yacht was found with cash, food, ice in a cooler, and French’s driver’s licence on board. News reports described French as an avid sailor, who had been sailing since his youth. Family said typically French would not sail far from shore before turning around for shore and said he almost never made trips to the Canadian side of Lake Ontario. -Staff

THIS week, Stephen Harper decided to shuffle his cabinet, just as most political leaders have had the freedom to do after gaining the confidence of his or her party in a majority leadership vote. Just as any other leader, Harper picked the people he felt suited to have delivering services on behalf of the government he is running. Through Canadian custom, he is their de facto boss and, thus, it appears natural that Harper and his closest advisors would be able to tell the ministers they have selected items they’d like to see highest on their agenda in the next few years. While many public pundits seem shocked that a prime minister would offer that kind of direction to the people he puts in his cabinet, one would have to wonder how many business leaders in the public or the private sector would give their underlings complete free reign to dictate policy and to decide what priority items should have on a task list. Some call may call that paranoia or manipulation, but from this corner, it just looks like sound business and good public relations to keep an organization dealing with billions of dollars on one page. It seems foolish to think that ministers would not be thoroughly briefed when entering such a highprofile job, particularly when many of these people were consumed with other high-priority files around the clock before they got the call. Much has also been made of reports that the prime minister’s office asked for “enemy lists” to be included in this briefing material. While that isn’t the best name for such information, one could see how it would be particularly useful for an incoming politician to know the experiences of one’s predecessor and to have some knowledge about stakeholders they deemed trustworthy and others they deemed to have certain agendas. While there is a requirement of public servants and politicians to work for all Canadians — and they do —it is equally naive to believe government must listen to every request from every interest group and that there aren’t people who pride themselves on sticking up the gears. All of that is part of governing a society where there is freedom of will and freedom of expression. Whether the system is perfect or not — and the first-past-the -post system does alienate many — Canadians go to the polls to vote for ideas and to offer a mandate to the party they believe has the best plan going forward. When one of those parties wins a majority, that party attempts to move forward to do the things it promised in hopes of using its record to stand in future elections. Those briefings may help forward that agenda — and really, it’s doubtful people who would appear on those lists would take inclusion as a surprise or anything less than a badge of honour. In the end, whether they’re liked or not, Harper’s methods seem to be working for his party and they might work for a leader of another stripe in another time. Those who don’t like it best be studying ways to completely revamp Canada’s political system.

Cool fun, learning for youth and adults at local libraries The library continues with its full calendar of events for everyone this summer, all presented in air-conditioned comfort. On Friday, July 19, Whitney Lee hosts “The Great Canadian Adventure”, a rollicking tour through Canada for kids 6 to 10 years old. Children can learn about Canada through games, music and stories. They will also be building inukshuks. The Great Canadian Adventure happens at 11 a.m. at the Picton branch and again at 2 p.m. at the Consecon branch library. Also on Friday, at 3 p.m., drop by the Picton branch and learn about Food Not Bombs, an initiative of the Social Justice Group. Food Not Bombs is a worldwide movement of autonomously run groups who share free food and information about social justice issues while building community. Teenagers may want to get involved and earn community hours. The Social Justice Group meets on alternate Thursdays and is open to all. Upcoming meetings are Thursday July 18 and Thursday, Aug. 1, both at 5:30 p.m. at the Picton branch. This Saturday, July 20, youth 10 to 14 years old are invited to “Mr. B and Miss Lee’s Innovators’ Workshop” a science and technology workshop where the creations evolve from the participants’ ideas. These workshops were first held at Athol, Sophiasburgh and Pinecrest public schools last year with Bill Babbitt. Students created projects such as a heart and lung machine, a force meter, a crane, and an illuminator, which is a type of homemade microscope. All of these were fashioned from found and recycled materials, and the same types of materials will be used in the library program. The library is grateful to Babbitt for volunteering to share the program with the library. The first of the four innovators’ workshops is at the Ameliasburgh

The series continues this Sunday with shows at 2 pm and 8 pm. (Jason Parks/Gazette Staff)


Perhaps government will show mercy on hospital file

If this government can change its mind about the placement of wind turbines in order to save the Blanding's turtle mums, surely we must be able to persuade this same government to return the control of our Prince Edward County Hospital to us in order that our human mums don't have to trek all the way to Belleville to have their babies. We, the people, built the hospital. We ran it with balanced books. We raised money to buy new equipment. We simply cannot

afford the bureaucrats with their huge salaries and bonuses. Give the hospital back to us, the people of the county. You think wind turbines will lessen the value of your properties? Just wait till we have no hospital. I urge you to take five minutes and write to Premier Kathleen Wynne at Room 281, 111 Wellesley St. West, Toronto, ON M7A1A1 or e-mail phone 416-3251941or Minister of Health Deb Matthews at Ministry of Health and Long-term Care,

10th floor, Hepburn Block, 80 Grosvenor Street, Toronto, ON M7A 2C4 or e-mail dmatthews.mpp@liberal.ola. org phone 416-327-4300. Start a petition with your neighbours and send it to the above. Phone them. We are not alone in this fight. Many other rural hospitals are in the same boat. It will take time. It will take effort but we can do it if we all do our bit. We, along with the other groups, must create a movement and let this government know that we will no longer tolerate their

bullying behaviour. If a young Pakistani girl, shot in the head by the Taliban because she was outspoken about the rights of girls to go to school, can stand before the UN general assembly and forcefully announce that she will not be stopped from promoting education for girls, surely we county people will not remain bystanders as we see our very own hospital disappear bit by bit. Norma Crichton Picton

Turtles provide cover for political decision on turbines

I lived just north of Ostrander Point from 1965 to 1980. In the Second World War, the Canadian Armed Forces used the south shore of Prince Edward County as a bombing (or firing) range in their myriad training exercises. Ostrander Point was no exception to these exercises and locals,

long resident in the area, led me to believe that much ammunition had been expended in the area. Thirty years after the war ended, local youths were still occasionally scouring the fields looking for brass shell casings to sell to Harrison’s for pocket change (it was rumoured

that if a field caught fire and burned off the little vegetation that was present, it was much easier to spot the shells the next day). I suggest that if the Canadian military was unable to kill off the Blanding’s turtles that it is unlikely that installing a

few wind turbines will do the trick. My point is this smells more like a political decision than an environmental one. Pick a better reason to ban the wind farm than the Blanding’s turtles. Dave Nickerson Picton

Province still hasn’t taken action to restore lifeguards

“Bring back lifeguards.” We recommended that years ago to the coroner of Ontario . After the drowning report came out 2011, he agreed with us for three high volume beaches— Sandbanks, Wasaga Beach, and Rock Point on Lake Erie. These

provincial parks were listed in chief coroners Dr Bert Lauwers’ report on drowning released to the public June 2011, yet there has still been no change. Lauwers’ quote reads“It would be prudent to place lifeguards at three highly

populated beaches : Sand Banks, Wasaga, Rock Point.” Also there has been no change for other recommendations he wanted, for example: extra working emergency phones, and the international warning flag system to name a few.

Lifeguard towers are critical. We really pushed for that, but no change. The same for applies for the coroners’ recommendations for pools and life jackets in watercraft. Elaine Tanner and John Watt

Lives go on in boomtown Fort McMurray Festival Players opener shows no simple plotlines

What's your angle? That seemed to be one of the most prevalent questions members of Calgary's Architect Theatre were asked when they told people in Fort McMurray, Alberta they were researching for a play. Considering the northern city is home of Canada's controversial oil sands project, there are always going to be opinions about the rights and the wrongs of such a major economic entity. With the play that resulted, however, Highway 63: The Fort Mac Show, one can be forgiven if they're not still asking the same question. The show seems to be written in such a way that it avoids making conclusions, it avoids pointing fingers, and it elects to leave questions unanswered. Three talented actors — original cast members Georgina Beaty and Joanthan Seinen, and newcomer David Patrick Flemming take to a fairly bare-bones set without the use of costumes in an attempt to tell the tales of many people who have come to Fort McMurray. They work with accents and change their body positioning just slightly as they weave through different characters and perspectives. Some rationalize their presence in the oil sands to chase a few dollars, some relish the opportunity to live there and teach the next generation. Some are looking for dates with the opposite sex — there's a really high number of men to women in Fort McMurray — and some, like in a note one of the actors read from Craig's List, are looking to experiment with their own. Basically, when it comes down to it, each of the characters they present, including those who are asking about their own presence in Fort McMurray are human beings living their lives. From the somewhat confusing barrage of characters, the cast has developed one story in particular, following

love interest The budding romance between characters Chad (David Patrick Flemming) and Mary (Georgina Beaty) is one of the compelling stories making up Highway 63: The Fort Mac Show. (Festival Players)

along with Chad (Flemming), a brash Newfoundlander who is making money driving for one of the oil companies and the man he rents his room from, Steve (Seinen), who had been in the area three years working with the belief that he could help recreate the land the oil was mined from. Steve is a little bit shy and easy going, creating a nice foil for the bluster of Chad. The two show off their differences and even debate a bit about the work they're doing in their time in Fort McMurray. While grocery shopping, the two men meet Mary (Beaty), a native Fort McMurray resident dreaming to get out and pursue her own dreams of dancing school in Toronto. Despite Mary's guard being up, Steve eventually charms her into visiting their home, yet she ultimately ends up with Chad as neither really seems to want a relationship. Things change the longer Chad is in Fort McMurray and eventually he wishes to settle down with Mary, but she wants no part of it and it blows up abruptly. From there, while Chad becomes bitter, Mary and Steve talk about reconstruction and the notion that it may not be able to what it has claimed. The dialogue moves into questions and again challenges the audience to explore their own beliefs about the project. Staged at Fields on West Lake as part of the Festival Players of Prince Edward County's seventh season,

Highway 63: The Fort Mac Show provides 90-minutes of entertainment. The scenes set by director Charlotte Corbeil Coleman are well blocked, there are some great one-liners, and Flemming's many accents and genuine characteristics can steal the show at times. Beaty and Seinen are no slouches themselves. For all that, however, the show does seem to be lacking something. It has a transient quality, much like Fort McMurray and the highway leading up to it. It is fast paced, nothing seems resolved, and nothing really ever settles down. Just like the oil sands, the show lasts for a specific period of time and the characters on stage offer a story for the time they're there that ultimately is just a sliver of the overall presentation. Audiences see hopes and dreams and disappointment and let downs, but in the end, there's something bigger looming and all the answers aren't going to be solved today. In the end, it appears, the angle is just that… life happens. The bigger picture is out there for those who want to explore it, but through tiny pieces, one can get a sense of the go-go-go world that Fort McMurray has become. What one does with it, just like a Fort McMurray resident, is up to them. Potential audience members can still explore for themselves tonight and tomorrow at 8 p.m. Be forewarned, there is some strong language in this show.

Rock and gem show offers array of treasures Displays at Crystal Palace interest novices, experienced collectors alike Jason Parks

Staff writer

Given the subject matter, you would have had a hard time beating the second annual Prince Edward County Rock and Gem show on Sunday at the Crystal Palace. Rockhounds from all over the area converged here to take in the event. Entitled From Earth and Beyond, the show offered a whole host of ways to tickle a rock, gem and mineral enthusiasts fancy. Over two dozen vendors from Ontario and Quebec presented fossils, rocks and minerals, lapidary and jewelry art while Matt Fair, of Research Castings International, in Trenton offered a presentation on how his company creates dinosaur displays for the Royal Ontario Museum and

other educational facilities around the globe. Club president John Zandarin said the inaugural show attracted over 700 attendees last year and hopes were high this dynamic exhibition and sale would draw another big crowd. “While it is not the largest show in the province, this one is one of the most comprehensive,� Zandarin told the Gazette. “It's probably the only show that has a dinosaur display courtesy of Research Castings, we have a number of lapidary artists, jewelry artists plus rock and mineral vendors so collectors in the crowd can bolster their collections.� In addition to all that, the club was hosting a member's showcase table that allowed for the 40 or so local rock-

hounds a chance to trade or sell surplus items Zandarin said shows like “Earth and Beyond� help to rekindle the rockhound in everybody. “Most people start collecting rocks at an early age, but for whatever reason we stray away from it,� he said. “Collectors take a lot pleasure in the various applications that you can undertake in this hobby. Some people do it just for the pure collecting calling it the ultimate treasure hunt.� The club consists of members aged 7 to 78 with some being retired geologists and former professionals that have worked with rocks and minerals their entire life. The club goes on six to eight field expeditions annually as well trips to museums. They also host monthly

meetings that include talks on collecting safely, how to display collections, et cetera. Tristan Leclerc is one of the club's youngest members and leaves little doubt as to what his favourite past time is when discussing the hobby of rock collecting. Among his prized possessions on display in the member's showcase was an 11 lb example of green apatite he unearthed during an expedition in a mine near Bear Lake in North Central Ontario. “It predates the dinosaurs,� Leclerc explained. “It's so brittle it usually falls apart so finding a sample like this was awesome.� For more information on joining the Prince Edward County Rock, Gem, and Mineral Club, e-mail or call Zandarin at 613-921-6773.

Young Festival Players cast premieres Secord story Musical teaches tale of Canadian heroism from 200 years ago AdAm BrAmBurger Staff writer

WAke up! Laura Secord (Brianna Gorsline) wakes up

her faithful cow Bessy (Karina Milech) for the start of their journey through American sentries and swamps as her husband (James King) looks on. (Adam Bramburger/Gazette staff)

launch a young company —a group of seven young actors, many from post-secondary drama programs — to develop talent for the stage. The players were selected and two weeks ago, they were brought together under the direction of Festival Players regular and first-time director Eliza-Jane Scott to learn the story themselves. For many, the excitement surrounding the project was evident right from the first day of rehearsals. "I think it's wonderful that we have a new Canadian musical of a historical event in Canada. I can't think of a musical based on a Canadian historical figure," said county native Scott Kuipers. "It's a very educational experience for children. I didn't even know much of the Laura Secord story beforehand, I knew very generally about it."

From July 2 to July 12, the company spent long days rehearsing from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. to be able to open for three shows at McAulay Heritage Museum last weekend. Kuipers said the process was "very intensive," but added he never felt like the company was rushed. "I think that's to ElizaJane's credit. She's an amazing director and she kept us on task. It never seemed rushed like we had to go, go, go. It was just, 'Here's what were doing today' and we set out and we did it." The production on stage looked as if it taken much more than two weeks to bring together. While Brianna Gorsline played only Sec-

Some 200 years ago, Laura Secord performed a great act of heroism that led to a great British victory in the War of 1812. Now, she's known mostly for a chocolate company she never knew. In a world premiere musical, the Young Company of the Festival Players of Prince Edward County set out to change those impressions, Friday, to let Canadians of all ages in on Secord's story. Some 11 years ago, playwright Sandra Cardinal wrote a school play about Secord with the help of Chris McKhool, who was an artistin-residence helping add music for her students. A couple years ago, the pair met up again and it donned on them a big anniversary was coming soon. "We realized the 200-year anniversary of Laura's walk was coming up and Sandy said maybe we should rework it and update it, see if we can find someone to produce it," said McKhool. Cardinal had a summer home here in Prince Edward County and she knew the county was a proud United Empire Loyalist community. She also had knowledge of the Festival Players and their work to share Canadian stories. In talking with Festival Players' artistic director Sarah Phillips, she managed to find a way to have her show reach audiences in this important bicentennial year. Turns out the Festival Players were planning to

ord, many of the other characters in the cast (Kuipers, Georgia Duff, Ben JensenReid, James King, Karina Milech, and Fiona Stammers) played multiple characters — some American soldiers, some Canadians, some family, and some animals, including an entertaining recurring character "Bessy the cow" played affectionately by Milech. While the sets are limited due to the required portability of the stage, Scott makes the most out of her cast and the tools available to her. King stepped into several scenes with his guitar and helped carry them along. A backlit screen provided an opportunity for fireflies to be introduced into the storytelling as well as a cute gimmick with a map and a miniature of Secord, showing how far she travelled on her quest to tell Lieutenant FitzGibbon about the American's planned surprise attack at Beaver Dams.

Actors hope to use time with Young Company as a stepping stone toward careers in theatre

PREMIERE, from page 11

Second had learned that

knowledge from the Americans who had been billeted in her home in Queenston.

The production also features plenty of fun for the family, including humorous

moments like the drunken boasting of the American men and a choreographed

line dance with Secord and the creatures of the swamp before coreurs du bois paddled with her to the British headquarters. "It was good we were able to teach kids and I guess adults the story of Laura Secord using theatre. It's a great outlet," said Jensen-Reid. "The music is really fun. It's easy going and fairly easy to learn for the kids with the lyrics. The dancing was a little hard but we got there." Kuipers said he hoped the characters told the story clearly enough for the children to understand and to retain the knowledge. With Gorsline, a veteran of many Marysburgh Mummer shows, cast as the title character, it's a safe bet they will. She has a commanding, yet comforting presence on the stage, much like the woman she was trying to portray. "My character was very outspoken and very strong," Gorsline said. "She wants her family to not be affected by the war and she goes on her trek for her family." The actors credit Scott's direction and their own experiences in theatre for bringing them together as a cast and making the scenes believable. Cardinal said she was impressed with their development as she worked with the cast to tweak the scripts several times in the past two weeks. "Oh my goodness, (Scott) has worked with these kids in the most positive, sensitive way and brought out all of what you saw — which was just tremendous. Every morsel of their talent has ben used here. It's much more than I envisioned." The Young Company will take Laura Secord on the road this summer. It moves to Ameliasburgh Museum this weekend, then Fifth Town Artisan Cheese, Sandbanks Provincial Park, and Campbell's Orchards. Showtimes are at 11 a.m Friday to Sunday, with the exception of the Sandbanks show at 8 p.m. Park admission is also not covered in the price of that show. Admission for the shows themselves is $12 or $40 for a family pack of four. Beyond, all the parties are

hopeful they will have gained from the experience. Cardinal says she hopes the play will find extended life elsewhere in the province. "We don't think the history is over with this play. We're hoping it will move on and find life with another company, perhaps. I'd love to see it come to Toronto or see it in Niagara where the story takes place. We don't think it's done yet." Kuipers, who attends Ryerson for performance acting, booked his work schedule around this performance and the Festival Players' upcoming The Notorious Right Robert and his Robber Bride, which also features cast members. He sees it as a valuable career-building experience. "It's invaluable. I've learned so much," he said. "It gives you a different perspective. My school has one way of looking at things, this is another. Every show is another way of looking at working with different people and learning how they operate." Gorsline said she felt growth as an actor since she started with the company and a sense of appreciation in being able to come home from St. Lawrence College in Brockville to show audiences that have long supported her where she is in life now. It will be a stepping stone. "Any experience you can get, you get yourself out there. You need to be noticed," she said. "This will give experience and help me build a career for the future. Being involved in a new Canadian musical is something special. I'm truly blessed."

Learn how to use the roundabouts on area roads safely



marily lower operating speeds, one-way traffic circulation and a reduced number of conflict points. At traditional four-leg intersections with stop signs or traffic signals, there are a total of 32 potential collision points. The most common types of crashes include rear-end, right-angle, left-turn, and head-on collisions. These types of collisions can potentially have severe impacts since vehicles may be traveling through the intersection at high speeds. With roundabouts, these potentially serious collisions are essentially eliminated because vehicles travel in the same direction at a reduced speed. The elimination of traffic signals removes any incentive for drivers to speed up as they approach green lights, or to stop abruptly at red lights. In contrast, there are only eight points of conflict in a roundabout. Typically, vehicle-to-vehicle conflicts in a roundabout are related to vehicles merging into the cir-

cular roadway, however both vehicles would be traveling at low speeds. The most common types of conflicts in a roundabout are, rear-end, sideswipe and entering-circulating. Proper design can help to optimize the safety benefits of roundabouts. Relative to other age groups, senior drivers appear to be over-involved in crashes occurring at traditional intersections. Roundabouts eliminate a number of problem areas for older drivers that are typical of traditional intersections, such as left turns and entering busy thoroughfares from cross streets. The Ontario Ministry of Transportation has a downloadable .pdf printable version of a safety brochure on how to use roundabouts, fea-

turing tips on how to drive, walk, and cycle safely in roundabouts. Find it at this link We’ve also ordered some copies of the pamphlet so stop in and pick one up. MTO’s driver handbook includes recommendations on using roundabouts. The MTO website has a video on how to navigate a roundabout. The City of Sammamish also has a great animation on how to use a roundabout properly. Find it at this link: Sign up for the 55 Alive Mature Driver Refresher Course coming up this fall by calling 613-476-7493. The trainer always covers how to navigate roundabouts. 7 ,&2 7,&2

This is what the Ontario Ministry of Transportation has to say about using a roundabout. You’ll find a roundabout at Warings Corners in Prince Edward County. A roundabout is an alternative form of intersection traffic control. A modern roundabout is a circular intersection with yield at entry. It promotes safe and efficient traffic flow. Typical characteristics of a roundabout include: yield at entry; one-way travel around the central island (counterclockwise); slower speeds. Roundabouts have the potential to reduce collisions, traffic delays and fuel consumption resulting in improved air quality through reduced vehicle emissions. In Ontario, vehicles travel counterclockwise around a central island. Traffic entering the roundabout must yield to circulating traffic. Curves on the approaches to roundabouts require all vehicles to slow down before entering. Designs ensure that slow speeds are maintained around and at exits to the roundabout. Drivers approaching a roundabout must reduce their speeds, look for potential conflicts with vehicles already in the roundabout, and be prepared to stop. Once in the roundabout, drivers should not need to stop and can proceed to their exit. Because approaching traffic only has to yield to vehicles already circulating in a roundabout, movement is often without delay. It has been shown that a roundabout can move traffic through an intersection at a much higher rate than traditional intersection controls. Several features of roundabouts promote safety, pri-

Ameliasburgh will be the site of a new annual event celebrating the life and work of one the municipality's most famous former residents. The first annual Purdy Picnic will take place Saturday, July 27 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Al and Eurithe Purdy A-frame cottage at Roblin Lake in Ameliasburgh. Organizer Michele Lintern-Mole said the cottage was recently purchased from Eurithe Purdy and the event was conceived as an open house to show off the renovations being done for a future writer-in-residence program at the cottage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The big thing is we're going to get it done and have it ready for a writerin-residency program,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It's a celebration really of a lot of fundraising and a lot of pure faith in the Al Purdy A-frame Trust.â&#x20AC;? Visitors will be able to explore the A-frame, the longtime writing place of Canadian literary legend Al Purdy. Purdy's career spanned close to 60 years and included 39 books of poetry, a novel, two volumes of memoirs and four books of correspondence. He was born in Wooler, Ont. and attended school at Albert College in Belleville and Trenton Collegiate Institute before dropping out at age 17.

A free shuttle around town will also be available. Lintern-Mole said it's not certain if the writer-in-residency program will begin this year or next, but she said the A-frame association is hoping for two-tothree residencies per year.

Purdy's time in Prince Edward County began in 1957 when he and wife Eurithe moved to Roblin Lake and built the A-frame cottage. Purdy died in 2000 at the age of 81. Lintern-Mole said she's hoping visitors will come to realize what an important figure Purdy was to Canadian literature; one who also wrote often of Ameliasburgh and the surrounding area. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He wrote so much about this area. Were not just talking about the county, we're talking Madoc, we're talking Trenton,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He just wrote so much, he's almost like a universal voice and hopefully it will make people aware of the impact he had on literature.â&#x20AC;?

The municipality may soon approve a policy for granting financial relief on residential water bills, but the policy will only apply to cases where there is an unexplained consumption increase. Councillors voted at last week's committee-of-thewhole meeting to recommend that council adopt a policy of granting relief on water bills for owner-occupied residential properties on a case-by-case basis limited to one billing period where an “unexplained consumption increase” has occurred. The motion passed also says any request for relief has to be made in writing from the payment address on the utility bill in question within 30 days with a description of the alleged unexplained consumption increase. Corporate services and finance commissioner Susan Turnbull said last week that any relief paid out would have to be paid for through water rates. “Any relief that's provided is an expense to the water system and, if it turns out to be high enough, it will negatively impact the rates,” she said. “There's no other place to bring it from, there's no contingency in water.” Turnbull said she doesn't expect there to be many unexplained losses. A staff report presented to councillors at last Thursday's committee-of-the-whole meeting says the municipality frequently receives requests for water bill financial relief. The report says council directed staff to explore alternatives for financial relief after receiving a request from Merland Park Cottages. Owners Kevin and Jennifer Lavers received water charges that exceeded $10,000 over two months after water lines ruptured underground and the leak could not immediately be found.

Under the policy the Lavers would be ineligible to receive any relief. The Lavers spoke to the committee last week saying they support steps made by the municipality to better educate water users when it comes to water leaks. Still, the couple were incensed that the new policy would not apply to businesses. “We are, of course, extremely disappointed that you have not been sympathetic with regards to our unique situation,” Kevin Lavers told the committee last week. Lavers said the couple received a response letter from the municipality detailing past practices with regard to giving financial relief to residential home owners, but not businesses. “We would like to point out that we are both a residential and commercial property and so we believe we should be eligible for some sort of relief,” he said. Lavers said his water meter is only read once every two to three months and had a system been in place to notify them sooner, the couple wouldn't be facing a $10,000 bill. “The outstanding water bill will be a huge financial constraint on us. We would certainly like you to reconsider your decision,” Lavers said. The staff report says the proposed relief policy was adapted from a City of Toronto policy. Over the past two years the report says the municipality has received relief requests from eight residential and three non-residential properties with a total contested amount of over $22,251. Many were provided credits on the sewage portion of the bill at a total cost of $9307.67. While there was much debate on the Lavers' situation, the majority of councillors supported the staff recommendation.

County, health unit partner to provide helmets Deseronto

squad may leap into first place

Youth Park users now have access to borrow 20 lids for free adaM BraMBurger Staff writer

If any young skaters or bike riders are seen at the County Youth Park without helmets in the next two months, it won’t be due to a lack of availability. On Tuesday, the County announced it has partnered with the Hastings and Prince Edward Counties Health Unit to provide 20 helmets park users can borrow for free from the clubhouse. Public health nurse Cindy Kirkpatrick said studies have shown that wheeled activities have accounted for 20 per cent of all traumatic brain injuries for youth 19 and under seen in Canadian hospitals. “We know broken bones and sprains are far more common injuries, but it is the head injuries that tend to be more severe and have a lifelong impact,” she said. Kirkpatrick said medical professionals also believe that as many as four in five head injuries could be prevented simply by wearing a helmet. With that in mind, Kirkpatrick has been working with the County’s community centres and events marketing co-ordinator Lisa Lindsay to ensure there is a lending program going forward as studies have also proven that free distribution helps ensure every child has

Richard Lightfoot, a foreman with the County’s recreation department said he’s hopeful that through recruiting some experienced skaters to wear the helmets and promote the program, young

people will realize the danger and take part. “Hopefully it becomes the standard,” he said. “You wouldn’t think of playing hockey without a helmet, so why would you skateboard without one?” Lindsay said as a parent,

helmet use is very important to her and for that reason, she’s hopeful the program will continue to expand within the county. As an added bonus, those observed taking part in the helmet program will be eligible to receive free passes to

the Regent Theatre or Prince Edward Fitness and Aquatics Centre and they can enter into a Quinte District Brain Injury Association draw for one of five multi-sport helmets. Details on entering the daw are available in the skatepark clubhouse.

New schedule gives Dukes chance to face non-traditional foes Jason Parks

Staff writer

After the Wellington Dukes get back from Burlington, Vermont, they be shuffling off to Buffalo, New York. The Ontario Junior Hockey League released its 2013-204 schedule last week and as far as the local Junior A squad is concerned, their won't be much home cooking in the first three weeks of the season. Just two of the Wellington Dukes first 11 games will be played in the familiar confines of the Essroc Arena. After that, the club will enjoy a good lengthy home stand where they play 10 of 13 at home. If the club can find away to hold its head above water during the onslaught of early road tests, it

should be okay in terms of placing in the top half of the OJHL North-East Conference. In order to ensure a good number of traditional Friday night contests, the team needed t o make some sacrifices with the OJHL schedule maker. The early run of road trips was one of them. There's not a lot you can do,” Dukes coach and general manager Marty Abrams said. “We try to get as many Friday nights as we could and I think we did a good job of that .” Of their 26 home games, the Dukes will play 19 of those on a Friday evening. That includes their home opener against the Georgetown Raiders on Friday, Sept. 2, a game that will be Wellington's fourth of the season.

‘We’ve missed out on bringing those teams in, we also missed out on visiting those rinks and having that experience.’


Thanks to the new interlocking schedule that will see OJHL tea ms face off against each other at least twice, the opener will mark Georgetown's first visit to the new DukeDome. “They've always got a good club and hopefully there will be so e interest in seeing us play them for the

first time in a long time,” Abrams said . With the interlocking schedule, Wellington will be making trips to some rarely seen destinations. The club will finally make its first trip to Buffalo to tangle with the Junior Sabres on Tues. Feb. 11. “It's a great opportunity to bring some different teams into Wellington,” Abrams said of the interlocking schedule. “ We've missed out on bringing those teams in, we also missed out on visiting those rinks and having that experience. Buffalo has a huge following from an NCAA scouting standpoint and when they visit us, fans will have the chance to see the most improved OJHL team over the course of the last three seasons.” As has been the case for

the better part of a decade, the Dukes will be taking part in the annual Woodchuck Classic Showcase on the weekend after Labour day. Abrams said the Dukes will likely play Thursday, Friday and Saturday and skip the event's final day on Sunday to enure the club is back in plenty of time for when it kicks off the season in Kingston against the Voyageurs on Sept. 12. The club is in action the next night as they take on the Trenton Golden Hawks at the Duncan McDonald Memorial Gardens. As for a proposed outdoor game with the Hawks, Trenton hosts Wellington once in the depths of winter (Friday, Feb. 14, 2014) so that could be the date if plans are able to come together for such an event.

Defending 2012 Prince Edward County Men's Fastball League champion Whitepine Watershed appears poised to jump into first place as soon as this evening. The Deseronto-based squad has been climbing the rankings of the local fast pitch circuit and could leap frog the current first place Roblin's Family Plumbing Copperheads tonight. There should be some great action this evening in Picton as the Snakes (5-2-3, 13 points) hook up with Terra Vista (4-4-3, 11 points) in the early game. Should the Rockies win, they would tie Roblin's for first place and set the stage for the late contest when Whitepine (5-1-2, 12 points) takes on Beatty Seeds (6-40, 12 points). A tie in the late game would create a log jam of epic proportions with four teams having 13 points although Whitepine has two games in hand on the Huskers and Snakes and three on the Rox. The Huskers could have put some distance between themselves and Whitepine Tuesday but sloppy defence was their undoing in a game against the Rockies. The Rox scored four unanswered runs and pitcher Trevor Jones picked up the win in a 4-2 victory. Last week, Whitepine shaded Terra Vista 2-1 as Jamie Thompson barley bested wily veteran Pete Williams in a classic pitchers duel. In Tweed, Danford Contracting topped the Tweed Midgets 5-1. Rounding out the standings, the Frankford-based Danford squad remains within shouting distance of the top of the league with a 5-3-0 (10 points) record while Warren's Excavating Ameliasburgh A's are losing ground at 3-5-1 (seven points). Tweed holds down the basement of the loop with a 0-9-1 mark.

Prime time ice rates may increase by 10 per cent in August, non-prime to remain as is Chad Ibbotson

Staff writer

Ice users in Picton and Wellington can expect higher rental rates and a new ice rental cancellation policy this season. Committee of the whole voted last week to recommend council's approval of the measures at their July 23 meeting. Prime time ice rental rates will increase by 10 per cent to $134.92 per hour from $122.66. The nonprime time ice rate for adults will remain at last year's figure. Prime time ice

for youth will increase by five per cent to $106.30 per hour from $101.24 and the non-prime rate will also remain at last year's figure. Junior prime time rates will also increase by five per cent to $118.11 from $112.48 and the non-prime rate again will hold at last year's figure. The new rates, if approved by council, come into effect Aug. 1. Corporate services and finance commissioner Susan Turnbull said staff are trying to increase the use of nonprime ice through holding the fees at last year's level.

She said when council passed a policy that nonprime ice rates be set at 75 per cent of prime time ice, fees for youth jumped 34 per cent, and junior rates increased by 49 per cent. “To give them credit, you've seen not one complaint from either of those groups,” she said at Thursday's meeting. “That wasn't the situation with the adults … in an effort to actually use non-prime ice we're recommending it stay at what it is.” The committee also recommended that council adopt a new ice cancellation

policy for the 2013-2014 season. Any ice cancellation would require notice of 10 business days. Turnbull said all the user groups agreed to the significant policy change and

said the measure would prevent revenue losses in the future. “You could cancel ice at a moment's notice and not be charged for it. The revenue we've lost amount to

tens of thousands of dollars of ice lost,” she said. “… If they don't give us 10 days cancellation (notice) they pay for the ice unless we can re-rent it. I believe that's a huge coup.”

Camp ROC day program flourishes at PECI Jason Parks

Staff writer

The kids were rocking out at Camp ROC this past week. The Recreation Outreach Centre (ROC) hosted over 100 children last week at PECI as part of its annual summer day camp program and, from the smiles on everyones faces as they celebrated their final day with a pizza party, a good time was had by all. ROC program facilitator Hilary Fennell said the move to host the event at the local secondary school allowed the program to grow. “It's a great new location for us, a fabulous venue with lots of space to allow us to separate ourselves and still have room to fit 107 kids. With over 30 volunteers and local coaches such as PECI basketball maven Rob Garden and baseball coach Matt Ronan leading the way, children were able to have very constructive and entertaining weeks. Children chose either creative art classes or sports activities and were then sectioned off. After a nutritious meal supplied by local churches and individuals, the groups resumed their chosen path then rejoined for an end-ofday mass game such as capture the flag. The program continues to evolve and grow and judging by the responses from satisfied parents, it's in the right direction. Fennell said the feedback survey generated plenty of positive response. “We asked parents how would they describe Camp ROC to people who didn't know about the program and one person called it 'A place of community where kids connect with other kids learn new things and have fun in a positive and growing atmosphere' and another said it was 'an amazing week of fun for kids run by passionate and amazing group volunteers' and that it was 'fun, friendly, focused, affirmative and affordable.” At a cost of $80 for the week, A parent told Fennell that the low cost program

made it possible for their child to enjoy a camp experience that might not get otherwise. Fennell added that the program hoped to be back at PECI next year and, with

more fundraising and community input, Camp ROC could be expanded in both size and duration. For more information on the ROC, visit

The Picton Gazette THURSDAY, JULY 18, 2013

Members of consular corps also tour winning wineries

WINES, from page 1

After greetings with owners Lanny and Catherine Huff, Onley and his entourage were able to tour the Oeno Gallery, wander through dedicated a dedicated area with winemaker FrĂŠdĂŠric Picard, himself trained in Burgundy, France, then sit down in a trendy, modern banquet facility. Onley, however, managed to capture the link between the two wineries nicely. "This is something that is not a business, it has to be a passion. If it's not a passion, it's not going to be a good business," he said. "That passion along with prudence and good planning has led to a great success story. This is good for the county and good for the entire province." Gerald Spinosa discussed how he searched for just the right terroir to settle on before planting his vines in 2004. He wanted a property a certain distance from Lake Ontario to act as a buffer and he wanted the limestone that worked so well in burgundy that would add a mineral quality to the wine. "We're here because of what's below us. Our guess paid off," he said. Almost immediately after opening in 2010, Exultet had reason to rejoice â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the English translation to the Latin word Exultet â&#x20AC;&#x201D; when its 2009 Chardonnay won gold at the Ontario Wine Awards out of the gate. They added the name "The Blessed" to celebrate the unusual accomplishment and have won awards with every vintage of Chardonnay since. While that was the wine that lifted Exultet into the Lieutenant Governor's Awards, Gerald said Pinot noir is also one of his greatest focuses and the winery has also won some awards for that grape, one he has planted several varieties of. "It's like the palette of a painter, you want these flavours and that colour and you put them together to create a wine," he said. Though Exultet has had great success over the past three years, Lia Spinosa said they have no illusions about growing too quickly in the future. "Our total production is 1,000 cases. We're never going to get rich on 1,000 cases but Gerry's happy. He loves what he's doing," she said. "It's an art form for him. I say it's like a limited edition print. We're happy about keeping it small and simple, but well made. When you're going to do a job, do it well, and do it with excellence." The Spinosa children â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Olivia, Mario, and Joseph â&#x20AC;&#x201D; have also been learning how to take up the family business, the latter two producing their own label, Knucklehead Red, which may just have been Onley's favourite of the day. It uses grapes gleaned from the vines after Exultet's production. Besides that, Onley said he was inspired by the family's efforts. "I think what I've been impressed with, here is a family who moved from Toronto and simply decided to have a different lifestyle," he said. "To take over a vintage piece of property that has its own

unique history as the location of a cheddar factory and add to it â&#x20AC;&#x201D; out of the gate, they're winning awards and substantial ones. That's incredible." Over the years, Huff Estates has been no stranger to awards either. In 2008, it earned the Tony Aspler CuveĂŠ Award as Ontario's Winery of the Year. It was also the first county winery to break into the Lieutenant Governor's Awards, winning in the inaugural class for the 2008 CuveĂŠ Peter F. Huff. This year's winner was actually the 2007 CuveĂŠ Peter F. Huff , the previous vintage of the sparkling mix of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir named after Lanny and Catharine Huff's late son, which Picard elected to leave in French oak barrels for over five years to age. He said the idea was to add different flavouring and aromas in the sparkling wine â&#x20AC;&#x201D; something that Picard believes Huff was able to do with its release.


"I think it shows very well what the county can make," he said. He indicated Huff Estates was the first county winery to introduce sparkling wine and as it has matured as a winery and experimented with new techniques, both in barreling and aging and in vine management, there is potential to make even better products in the years to come. "The wine shows plenty of promise. Hopefully, we can continue to improve." Huff's overall yield is between 6,500 to 7,000 cases depending on the year and Picard said since 2007, the winery hasn't really had a bad year in terms of weather or production. He said with a lot of rain early this year, the vines are healthy but he's hoping for a drier summer to come. The Lieutenant Governor's Award For Excellence in Ontario Wines recipients were chosen by a panel of 13 leading wine experts

Following the ceremony at Queen's Park last week, the winning wineries were able to print the lieutenant-governorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own label on the their winning varieties.

Iris borers becoming a common problem for many county gardeners this month

It seems that I can hardly talk with anyone about gardening this week without iris woes arising. July is the month to take a look at your iris and do damage repair if the plants are ailing and many are this year. Iris is a very hardy plant with very few diseases or invading pests. However, when the iris borer invades it does serious damage. Iris borers spend the winter as eggs on old iris leaves and plant debris around the base of the iris plants. In early spring the eggs hatch into tiny caterpillars that climb on to the new foliage which would be only about 10 centimetres at that stage. They bore

into the leaves and begin feeding inside of the leaves and around the leaf edges. When they mature, in early to mid-July, they have grown to about five centimetres in length and are a pinkish colour. At that stage, they move down into the rhizome and begin to consume it as well. The wound inflicted by the iris borer can also allow the entry of bacterial soft rot which I will address later on. Rhizomes become soft and slimy and foulsmelling. In the late summer and early fall, iris borer caterpillars move into the soil where they pupate to emerge as brown moths with a wing span of up to five centimetres. Because these moths only fly at night they are seldom seen. The female moths complete the lifecycle of the iris borer by laying eggs on iris leaves and around the base of the iris

plants in debris that is left in the garden. The remedy for iris borer is mostly a manual one since we are no longer using many pesticides in Ontario. If you see evidence of iris borer in the spring while they are still inside the leaf, such as watery streaks or chewing damage, you can squash them inside of the leaf or cut the leaf off and destroy it. If it is later when you discover the damage, like now, then they have moved into the rhizome and you must lift the plant, remove the caterpillar with a sharp knife and cut away the damaged section of the rhizome. If the damage is not too advanced, the iris may survive. Leave the rhizome out in the air for several days and be sure to leave the top portion of the rhizome exposed above the soil as you replant it. Cutting back damaged foliage is an important step. It should be disposed of by

bagging, burying or burning but not by composting. Even if your iris is not beset with disease or pests, they benefit by being lifted and divided every three to five years. Beneficial nematodes are also an option for the control of iris borers. Both species (Heterohabditis and Steinemema) are effective in attacking iris borer. This will take longer as nematodes move relatively slowly. The time to apply nematodes is in the spring when you first spot leaf damage. Nematodes need a moist environment to survive and move which certainly has not been an issue for the county this year. Not all iris damage is caused by iris borer, however. If you lift your iris and don’t see the iris borer, you may have a case of bacterial soft rot which has been caused by a wound other than the iris borer to the rhizome such as a freeze-thaw cycle before they bloomed. In any case, the remedy for bacterial soft rot is the same as described above but nematodes will not be effective if no borer is present. In all cases of iris damage, lifting the iris, cleaning out the bed and even

removing some of the affected soil and replacing it with unaffected soil is important. Replanting iris in a bed that has not previously been affected by disease is a good idea. In the fall, remove and destroy remaining iris leaves and any debris around the iris plants. Clean up iris beds after a hard frost because that is when the female moths cease to lay their eggs. Less damaging to the iris are bacterial leaf blight and fungal leaf spot. Both of these diseases are managed by using good sanitation practices. When you are working in an iris bed (or any plant bed that contains a fungal or bacterial infection) it’s important to keep your cutting tools disinfected. Use a nine-to-one solution of water to household bleach to clean your tools before you use them on healthy plants so that you do not spread disease. Keeping your garden clean from debris goes a long way toward avoiding the conditions conductive to both diseases and pests. Send your gardening questions to

Facility offers comfort for families to visit loved ones


from page 1

Parks suggested every person who has come into contact with Hospice has had their own stories and most who turned up for the opening events had their own reasons for doing so. She said she was looking forward to seeing the new facility becoming a central part of the collective stories of all in attendance. “Going forward, this community residential hospice centre will now be part of our stories, weaved in our memories. This home belongs to the community, it has been created by the community, and it will be operated and supported by the community,” she said. “Look at what you have created. You should all be proud at what you have accomplished. Many, many people have worked tirelessly to get us where we are today.” Parks encouraged the people gathered for the

opening to share their appreciation for the many volunteers who helped shape the project and the many local businesses who gave in some way. She also mentioned her thoughts at the moment for John Della Bosca, a tireless worker on the residential Hospice project who died just last month. Mayor Peter Mertens indicated he’d toured the facility earlier in the day before participating in the ribbon cutting. He indicated he was impressed with what he saw. “The care and the attention to detail that has been implemented to is going to ensure the clients, the patients, and their families are able to spend their last days in dignity, in comfort, and in an environment that lends itself to sharing those last moments in peace. It is a remarkable effort.” Mertens suggested those who hadn’t toured the facility would have their breaths

taken away. MPP Todd Smith added Hospice had passed a major milestone in opening its doors, noting that things typically get easier once people have seen the facility and understand the environment and type of care it provides. Inside, the home had three rooms with hospital beds and lift chairs as well as individual washrooms with state-of-the-art sanitary showers installed. Also upstairs, families would have the opportunity to use a living room with a fold-out couch and a full kitchen and dining room. The lower level provided a large room for Hospice volunteers to meet with another pull-out couch for families as well as regular offices for Hospice’s five staff members who moved over from the hospital. Symbolically, there is a candle in the home which will be lit every time a person dies within the facility to celebrate a life until the family

leaves the site. Community campaign chair Lyle Vanclief reminded visitors that while the Lighting The Way campaign is more than halfway to its $850,000 goal, the community will continue to be asked to help the project. “This is a a very special facility with a very special team to provide that care to, yes, probably some of us standing here today,” he said. “ We never know when we might need that. We are seeing a tangible accomplishment today with this hospice facility moving forward.” Vanclief said people like Parks, Langwisch, and their community members had certainly put in a lot of work to ensure that accomplishment came to pass, and now it is up to the community to rally to pay for the building and renovations costs as well as operations in future years. “The have given their all. It’s now time for us to give all that we possibly can,” he concluded.

Comfortable quarters The new residen-

tial hospice centre offers bright, well-equipped guest rooms as well as spacious living areas for families to be with loved ones in their final hours. (Adam Bramburger/Gazette staff)

Permanent distance markers too much signage for municipal officials Marathon’s request turned down due to clutter concerns Chad Ibbotson

Staff writer

Amid concerns about sign pollution councillors turned down a request from the organizers of the County Marathon to erect permanent distance markers. In mid May County Marathon race committee representative John Houghton spoke to committee of the whole requesting permission to install 42 permanent kilometre markers along the marathon race route at no cost to the county.

Houghton said part of the reason for the permanent signage was the propensity for temporary signage to blow over. “Last year, with the wind we do get down here a lot of times in Prince Edward, signs were just getting blown over and it became pretty dangerous and it just didn't look right to me,” he said in May. “When we got the idea to put permanent signs, it just meant it would be safer, it would look professional, it's there for county residents who run.” Houghton said at the time the signs would be paid for by sponsorships with each having its sponsors logo or name

Now taking orders for

visible. The committee voted to refer the issue to staff for a recommendation. Last Thursday that report came back to councillors with a recommendation that the markers be approved subject to several conditions. However, councillors still voiced concerns about the size and frequency of the signs on county roads and voted in opposition to the recommendation. If it had been approved, staff had recommended two separate sign sizes. The larger sign would have been restricted to 18 inches by 24 inches — about 46 centimetres by about 61 centimetres —

and would be seven feet or just over two metres high. These would be placed at two-kilometre intervals. The smaller signs would be 13 inches by 19 inches — 33 centimetres by about 48 centimetres — and would be set at six feet or just under two metres high. These also would have been placed at two-kilometre intervals. Councillor Bev Campbell was among those who were concerned with adding more signage to the municipality's roads. “I had concerns in the beginning and I don't think the recommendation alleviated those concerns,” she said. “The

port it,” Campbell said, adding that she may have been able to support some signage that was less frequent. “This is overkill.” Councillor Jamie Forrester too voiced concern with the frequency of signage — especially as it related to Athol and East Lake Road. “I just don't really want to see the countryside littered with signs. Every time I turn around now we have more and more signs coming up here. Signs, signs everywhere,” he said. “You're going down a rural road and we're going to have 28 signs going down for an event (that happens) once a year.”

concerns are mostly to do with sign pollution. The size of the signs is an issue. I also continue to believe the frequency of the signs — and I know they want them every kilometre — the frequency is just excessive.” Initially the signs were also meant to generate revenue through sponsorships. The report said after consultation with Houghton following his May deputation the marathon committee dropped the request that sponsorship be part of the markers. Campbell said that was a good thing, but also took away some of the rationale for having the signs. “As the recommendation stands I can't sup-

POOCH seeks to affiliate with like-minded groups Local organizers see strength in numbers for hospital fight Jason Parks

Staff writer

Every dog has its day. And while no one at the information session of the Patrons Of Our County Hospital (POOCH) was suggesting the group abandon its mandate of seeing a stand alone Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital operating outside the clutches of Quinte Healthcare Corporation (QHC), it appears that the grassroots ad hoc committee is looking to grow and expand into something else. About 100 people came to Picton United Church Wednesday evening to listen to the members of the POOCH committee explain what the group has been undertaking to this point and where it might be headed in the future. Media spokesperson and co-ordinator Wolf Braun indicated that POOCH may be at the crux of an eventual rural hospital revolution once it moves beyond a small ad-hoc group of four leaders and into an affiliation of Save Our Rural Hospital networks. “A lot of supporters and users of rural hospitals are not happy at being left as part of a large corporation — they want to their hospitals back,” Braun told those in attendance, listing off communities in Niagara, Perth and Kincardine as just a few areas where a rural hospital has had services routinely sacrificed to save a larger urban partner. “They've all tried that fight, all trying to work through their local healthcare corporations and Local Health Integration Networks (LHINs) and they haven't been successful. No one has gone the political route yet and we need to do that,” Braun said. A morph into a new entity is undertaken by reorganizing, getting more volunteers with a larger collective skill set and then branching out and sharing information with these communities. “So we see ourselves moving away from POOCH — that's a great acronym that (founder) Dave Gray came up with — but we need to go into something bigger and get core people that can help other communities organize,” said Braun. As it is in Prince Edward County, the time for a rural health-care revolution is nigh in other places in the province and a groundswell of discontent over the management (or mismanagement) of local hospitals could generate a wave that would

sweep past the regularly unproductive channels of the past. “We are not going to accept what the LHIN or what QHC or what our government is telling us. We've gone through that nonsense with (QHC president) Mary Clare Egberts and the LHIN. They try to persuade us that they are right and we are wrong. In a democracy, we give permission to be governed and it's clear we haven't given permission for what they are doing,” Braun said. Revered Al Reimers offered a brief chronology of PECMH, it's forced amalgamation into the QHC conglomerate in 1998 and how hospital went from a 42-bed operation that operated without deficit more often than not to a shell of its former self. “This eroding of services has been particularly galling since the hospital was funded and built by the citizens of Prince Edward

County,” Reimers said. PECMH has lost or is scheduled to lose physiotherapy, endoscopy, in-house food preparation, dietician services, maternity care, beds, hospital chaplain services, nurses and support staff but have gained an updated emergency room and a new digital imaging system. These moves have resulted in a net loss for PECMH and the impact is multiplied as young doctors are leaving Prince Edward County because of them, he said. Committee member Betsy Sinclair said a 2009 report by the Society of Rural Physicians of Canada details what many on rural Ontario have known or are finding outthat there are perils of having their small rural hospital tied in with an urban hospital. Sinclair provided attendees an overview of the report that explained how patients in rural hospitals are being underfunded when compared to patients in large
