The path down the White Chapel Road to the Red Barns may be the road less traveled, but those who found their way found great family fun last weekend. Owners Heather Watson and Peter Josic opened up their artisan village for their sixth consecutive Pioneer Days celebration to help fight multiple sclerosis (MS) in the county and had a great turnout. “A lot of people don’t

know we’ve been here eight years, so it has taken a long time,” said Watson, who said the county for Saturday alone included more than 200 guests. Arriving at the Red Barns — a converted farm — families had the opportunity to take in a series of live demonstrations in glass blowing, chainsaw carving, and blacksmithery. Children were able to start a scavenger hunt of the property and they could take part in pioneer games, like apple bobbing and ring toss or make their own distinct pottery. Watson said the weekend was really everything she envisioned back when she

first felt the local MS group could benefit from a fundraising activity. “It’s everything I envisioned,” she said. “It’s back to roots and it’s nice to see people using their hands.” Tom and Lorraine Tinsley brought their two children to the Pioneer Days as part of their first excursion while vacationing in the county. Lorraine indicated they were impressed by the number of things they were able to do at a reasonable price. Their children took part in almost everything and had a hard time finding just one favourite activity to participate in.

It has been the worst-kept secret in Prince Edward County but the cat is finally officially out of the bag. The Dudley Hewitt Cup is coming to the county. The Wellington Dukes and the Essroc Arena will play host to the Central Canadian Junior A Championships this spring with a berth to the 2014 RBC Cup on the line. The playoff champions of the Ontario Junior Hockey League, the Superior Junior Hockey League and the Northern Ontario Junior Hockey League as well as the host Wellington entry will play in a week-long round-robin tournament from April 29 to May 3. This marks the fourth time an OHA/OJHL-based club has hosted the event since the round-robin tournament format began in 2003. The Dukes join the Georgetown Raiders (2005), Newmarket Hurricanes (2008) and Huntsville Otters (2011) as OHA/OJHL hosts. Wellington is also a twotime Dudley-Hewitt Cup champion, having won the event in 2003 in Fort Frances and 2011 in Huntsville. While an easier path to a potential national championship has been paved, Wellington Dukes coach and general manager Marty Abrams said the organization was looking at the big picture with the Dudley Hewitt Championship providing an opportunity to promote Prince Edward County and the newly-built Wellington and District Community Centre. “As an organization, we've tried to look at the big picture and more important than our on-ice product is to bring this type of event to the municipality,” Abrams said. “It's been open for three years and with the exception of the events we've hosted (The Russian all-star game, the Central Canada AllStar Challenge) there hasn't been much done to pro-

mote it getting the word out that it's a great facility.” Lisa Lindsay, Prince Edward County's manager of community centres and events marketing, said the event will be great for the community. "Not only is this an opportunity to showcase our municipal arena at the Wellington and District Community Centre, but it's also an opportunity to boost community spirit while raising the profile of Prince Edward County. “The County of Prince Edward is thrilled to be providing the facilities for the Dudley Hewitt Cup," Lindsay said in a news release. Great facilities and regional promotion aside, tournaments of this magnitude can be a double edged sword for the hockey clubs that host them. Since 2003 when the Ontario Hockey Federation came up with the fourteam tournament concept, the Fort Frances Borderland Thunder, the Schreiber Diesels and the Huntsville Otters have all ceased operations a season or two after hosting the Dudley Hewitt Cup. While there might have been other factors in play in these markets, the expected financial boon of hosting a large scale Junior A hockey tournament never materialized. So what can the Dukes do to ensure the tournament doesn't become a financial that sinks the hockey club?

Near drowning raises questions about absence of lifeguards at Sandbanks

Superintendent stands by Outlet’s safety record AdAm BrAmBurger

Staff writer

Following a near drowning at the Outlet Beach this weekend and facing calls to reinstate life guards, the superintendent of Sandbanks Provincial Park spoke positively about the park’s safety record. “There’s a really good record here,” Robin Reilly told the Gazette Tuesday morning. “The beach is so shallow and it goes out far, it's a good place to swim.” Reilly said it is made clear to visitors that they are responsible for their own safety and that they are not swimming in a venue like a municipal pool where the conditions are always fixed and definable. According to Reilly, the park does have a safety sys-

tem in place that allows swimmers to quickly notify park staff and emergency services if they observe anything unusual or unsafe happening at the beach. “We have four white flags connected by telephones. That's one of the things we do so people can say if there's a problem and there's constantly staff back and forth along here.” Reports indicate that a 20year-old Toronto man was pulled from the lake just before 3 p.m. Saturday when another swimmer conducted CPR, while witnesses told the Belleville Intelligencer that parks staff and paramedics were quick to attend to the victim before he was taken to a local hospital in serious condition. Reilly said his under-

standing was that the rescue went well on all levels and was aided by some of the patrons on the beach that day. “We had ambulances and we were lucky there were some nurses and firefighters on the beach,” he said. When asked about the idea of lifeguards being employed at the park, Reilly said “there’s nothing in the cards anyway.” Just last week, Canadian Olympic swimmer Elaine Tanner and her husband John Watt wrote to the Gazette expressing their beliefs Sandbanks should have lifeguards as suggested in the report of Ontario’s chief coroner in 2011. Watt said the successful rescue doesn’t change the importance of the issue, stressing a trained lifeguard posted in an observation tower might have prevented the man from reaching the point of being in danger. “The fact that a member of

the public had to step up and make another rescue is telling. Having said that... (rescuer) Tracy Markland her daughter and friend did an admirable job and hopefully have saved a life,” Watt wrote in an e-mail. “Not to take anything away from this lady, a trained lifeguard would have reached this person even earlier. A system that relies on the general public as first responders who have to risk their own lives is totally unacceptable.” On Tuesday, the Outlet was the site of the Ontario launch of a water safety awareness program supported by the Hastings and Prince Edward Counties Health Unit. Though he said Sandbanks was simply providing a stage for the launch, Reilly indicated the water safety tips being offered to visitors this weekend could help swimmers stay safe. “Any information is good information hopefully,” he said.

Fuselli said the message applies to beaches without lifeguards, like Sandbanks, and Class B pools, but indicated that all people should still take personal responsibility for their own safety on the water. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You can't rely on someone else to do it,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is another layer of safety to have a lifeguard, but as a parent it is your primary responsibility to take care of your kids.â&#x20AC;? The campaign is just the latest in a number of activities the health unit has undertaken to promote water safety.

This weekend, every visitor to the beach at the North Beach and Sandbanks Provincial Parks will receive a post card. The cards are a reminder to swimmers that they are not invincible and that they are responsible for their own safety around water. The campaign is part of a new partnership between the Hastings and Prince Edward Counties Health Unit and Parachute, a national injury prevention organization with over 80 years of experience. Recently, Parachute worked with British Columbiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Community Against Preventable Injuries in developing a campaign in that province to help people be cognizant of the preventable nature of most injuries. Parachute vice-president Pamela Fuselli said the focus groups they studied showed people generally know what to do to stay safe, but are looking for reminders at the point where injuries could occur.

The local health unit was the first organization to bring the campaign to Ontario and public health nurse Cindy Kirkpatrick said the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beautiful beaches were a prime consideration in its decision to become involved. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It's a beautiful beach, I believe one of the largest fresh water sand beaches in the world,â&#x20AC;? s he said.

The Chef’s Domain reveals former Toronto kitchen guru’s county taste test Discovery World show Tuesday follows Matt DeMille’s first meal at Pomodoro AdAm BrAmBurger

Staff writer

Once a big name in the who’s who of Toronto cuisine, Matt DeMille has made a virtually seamless move to Prince Edward County. The Belleville native gained some acclaim as the winner of the County Chopped competition at Taste! last year and his Wellington establishment, Pomodoro, successfully has made it through the critical first off-season months. His transition, however,

caught the eye of the producers at Lively Media responsible for The Chef’s Domain, a television series on the Discovery World network for an episode that will air on the specialty channel Tuesday. “They were doing a second season and someone contacted Henry Willis from Humble Bread, when I just moved out here,” DeMille recalled. “He told them about me, they did some checking and then we were recording.” Lively executive producer Leanna Crouch said his cast-

ing was an fast fit. “Matt DeMille was an easy choice for us – a well known chef in Toronto's culinary circles, charming and talented, who left that world for a more rural life. It was a great story for us. Not to mention that his sense of fun infused that episode. " The series typically depicts chefs going to extra lengths to find the local fare needed to satisfy some of their most creative menu options. With DeMille, the series producers wanted to focus

on the change in environments from Toronto to the county and his need to win over the local audience and restaurateur Kimberly Humby, who was behind the Pomodoro project. While he said the transition wasn’t as big a deal for him as the show made it out to be, DeMille said there was some pressure to ensure his style fit locally. “In the downtown Toronto hustle and bustle, it’s a big night every night and people will eat your food no matter what,” he said. :”Here, you have to feed people year round. You have to lose any ego you have and make true, honest tasty food.” While DeMille acknowledged local restaurants get a lot out of the tourists, he said it is the local customer he looks to cater to because that is someone who will keep him going through the win-

talks between DeMille and Humby about elements of the menu — areas DeMille was prepared to push the envelope, only to be encouraged to rein in his tastes. DeMille said like any young chef, he likes to push the edges, but he and Humby have come to a good understanding that some may not see in the episode showing his big test. “Kimberly and I have a very good relationship. Meet in the middle on a lot of things,” he said. “I know what I want and she knows what the county wants and we find something.” The cameras followed DeMille as he put together that first dinner.

It has now become even more convenient to receive business advice within Prince Edward County. Last week, it was announced that Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Small Business Centre would provide funding to offer 21 hours of satellite services to the Picton community. Facilitator Sandy Abbott announced last Thursday that she would maintain that satellite office on the first floor of the Edward Building in space occupied by the federally-funded Prince Edward-Lennox and Addington Community Futures Development Corporation (PELA CFDC) and provincially-funded Launch Labs innovation centre. She explained that her centre, based out of Bellevilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Loyalist College works closely with those agencies as well as the Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s community development department which is housed one floor above. Abbott indicated it was natural to establish a more permanent base to work with those service providers in a one-stop shopping sort of scenario for local businesses.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Very often people work with more than one of us at a time,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This should be very good for the clients because if people come to see me and they are in the wrong place, I can easily direct them.â&#x20AC;?

develop their businesses. They also have programs that help youth entrepreneurs to develop summer ventures. Abbott added that often she can serve clients, then hook them up with the other agencies for help with funding, networking, and additional expertise. Desjardins added he was happy to see the negotiations completed, allowing Abbott to continue working in Picton.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;It's all about serving a client. It's making it easier to do business and we're open for business here in this community,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is about proven results (working together). Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not about Sandy having an office thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nice and air conditioned. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about what this does for us â&#x20AC;&#x201D; thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more jobs for people in this community.â&#x20AC;? Community development co-ordinator Todd Davis added the municipality is also thankful to see the new development. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was discouraging that our Small Business Centre was located in Belleville, it was harder for (people) to access that,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think it's critical they know there is a place they can seek that information locally. â&#x20AC;&#x153; Abbott said she works primarily between Tuesday and Friday, but does not have set hours, preferring to be flexible for businesses who can only meet evenings or weekends. She said the best way to access her services is to set up an appointment by calling via the CFDC at 613-476-7901 or the Small Business Centre office at 1-877-961-0590. Or, Desjardins said, if business people want to visit the suite, there will always be someone there to book that appointment and to offer additional services that may be needed.

Looking back in the

Picton Gazette 80 years ago — 1933

n Sailors and newspaper reporters across Ontario protested plans that would see the Lyman M. Davis, a 60-year-old schooner on Lake Ontario, burnt. Instead, they started a campaign that would see the ship — the last of its kind on the water — turned into a historical museum. Some suggested Picton would be alogical location for such an exhibition given its history as a naval port. n County councillors were expected to attend the continuation of an adjourned hospital board meeting in hopes of settling a matter of a grant, which would greatly improve the fortunes of the hospital’s financial situation. n The Picton Public Utilities Commission made an announcement it had purchased the D.F. VanDusen block on Main Street next to Roy Leavitt’s grocery store. The announcement came following a regular meeting of the commission.

60 years ago — 1953

n The Picton Public School board unanimously accepted the tender of Toronto’s W.A. Brown Construction Co. to build a new school at the cost of $276,350, which was the lowest bid presented. The second-lowest tender came from the local firm H.J. McFarland Construction Co. for $285,666. Following approval, the town was to issue debentures and work would not start until the money was raised. n Former Picton resident Harry Young managed to snag a 22-lb muskie while trolling off the Adolphustown shore. Young was using a Buffalo spinner and light casting tackle and reported it took 35 minutes to land his catch in the boat. n The official nomination deadline for the federal election came and passed without a Liberal candidate for Prince EdwardLennox. Conservative incumbent of Napanee would face independent Don Thompson of South Bay on Aug. 10.

40 years ago — 1973

n With its lowest rainfall on record since 1965, the county was in dire straights for rainfall to end a continuing drought. Pea crops were destroyed, wheat and corn were showing signs of damage, and milk production was down as less good pasture land was available for cows to graze. n County council accepted measures to drop the price on its proposed new home for the elderly below $1.5 million after the lowest tender came in at $1.7 million. One of the major changes was a reduction from the planned 100 beds to 84. n The County opted to give $1,000 to neighbouring Brighton to help that community clean up from a tornado disaster.

n Robert James Batchelor surrendered to police after being holed up in his father’s Ameliasburgh home for nine hours. The 32-year-old man who was sought by police had earlier refused to come out of the house. He was charged with two counts of possessing a firearm while prohibited, possession of a restricted weapon not registered to him, and breach of probation. n A steam engine built in in 1910 by the Goldie and McCulloch Company of Galt, Ontario was being restored at the Ameliasburgh museum and restoration project chair Owen Bosna felt the completed antique engine should be running in time for the Labour Day weekend.

Animal cruelty appears to be on rise again

In December of last year, a boat operator intentionally sped toward three mute swans at Glenora, killing one of them. A year earlier, another boater was seen doing much the same thing on Wellers Bay with cormorants. This spring at West Lake, a resident in that area poisoned raccoons with a lethal mixture of food and antifreeze. Not long ago, a small dog was kicked and abused on its leash right in downtown Tweed. And just this month, the operator of a high speed wake boat at the west end of Roblin Lake in Ameliasburgh mowed down a number of flightless goslings, killing several of them in the flock of 20 or so. Is it just me, or is there something woefully wrong with society today, that accepts these incidents of extreme cruelty to defenceless animals as fashionable behaviour? What motivates these brain-dead individuals to perpetuate such acts of cruelty? Is it the heat and humidity, the price of gas, their favourite brand of peanut butter missing from their supermarket shelf, or is it a general dislike for every living thing, except themselves? And why are they threatening to contaminate the human gene pool? Canada geese, mute swans, raccoons and cormorants may not be everyone’s favourite creatures due to their invasive nature, but I seriously doubt if they sit around the lily pads all night discussing ways of how best to annoy us. These creatures are doing what nature has


dictated they do, and surviving as best as they know how. In the case of the Canada geese incident at Ameliasburgh, the senseless act was apparently payback time. Several shoreline property owners were mortified when they witnessed the operator committing this insensitive act without apology as onlookers watched in disbelief, much the same as when the boat operator attacked the mute swan in front of a ferry load of shocked passengers at Glenora last winter. The sins of the geese? They wandered up from the water to feed on the fresh, green grass that the shoreline property owner irresponsibly mowed to the water’s edge. This person had, through his own irresponsible actions, intentionally welcomed the geese onto his lawn by preparing a grassed runway for them from the water. For this, goslings must die in the most horrific way to set an example to other geese who might be considering the

same idea. Sounds like a macabre children’s book. In his defence, he is not alone. This fixation with mowing to the water’s edge is epidemic in some areas, the practice encouraging runoff of herbicides and fertilizers into the watercourse. And, of course, allowing for an unobstructed ramp onto lawns for geese. The practice also encourages erosion of the shoreline during periods of wave action. Simply put, it is the wrong thing to do, if you have any regard for water quality at all. Others along the Roblin Lake shoreline seem to have it right. They have left a corridor of natural vegetation along the edge of the shoreline to act as a buffer and a filter. It is also the best way to dissuade Canada geese from wandering onto your lawn as they are reluctant to pass through uncertain grasses and other growth where danger may lurk. Shoreline rehabilitation does not have to look messy. And it doesn’t have to involve any more than a narrow corridor to be successful. Conservation authorities have helpful literature to guide property owners in the process; I have taught a sixweek backyard naturalization course for several years that incorporates shoreline responsibility. I have PDF formatted literature on what shrubs to choose that won’t be intrusive and obstruct the view of the lake, and suggestions on ground covers to complete the setting, all of which can be e-mailed upon request. The success of other

shoreline property owners who have adopted this method speaks for itself. The bottom line is, we need to work with wildlife to achieve success, not against it, and understand that wildlife populations anywhere are governed by the presence of four necessary components for wildlife habitat – food, water, shelter and space. If we work with any one or more of these components, we can actually manage the so-called “nuisance” wildlife. Wildlife never exceeds the carrying capacity of a given area. As long as there are grassy lawns that geese can easily access and lots of food, and the presence of water, shelter and space, there will be geese, and there will be whatever number that a given habitat is able to sustain. Mowing down defenceless goslings with a wake boat is not going to affect their population one iota. Nature always fills a void. And while geese are certainly far brighter than any of us could ever hope to be, they are not intelligent enough to interpret a senseless act like the Roblin Lake incident as any kind of lesson to be learned. All it does is verify to those of us who witness such acts of cruelty, how hopelessly stupid some of us really are.

Hospice Prince Edward seems to have brewed something good with its County’s Largest Coffee Party fundraiser. In its second year this year with the theme “From Your Home to Ours” the campaign raised more than $33,000 as a reported 50 hostesses opened their homes, churches, gardens, and community centres to welcome more than 800 guests to

take part in the events co-ordinated around June 13. The fundraiser’s co-chair Kathleen Hegedus-Beeksma and committee member Fran Renoy unveiled the total this week, which will help to support the newly opened residential hospice centre on Downes Avenue in Picton.

Sine and friends aid humane society Coffee parties raise $33,000 for home

Once again, Lorain Sine and her musical friends have come to the aid of the Loyalist Humane Society. Their Country Music For The Cats concert on Saturday raised more than $3,000 to help the shelter care for the many felines who call it home. Saturday’s concert featured Sine and her sisters and the Jon Milford Band featuring Rob

Johnson, Bill McBurney, and Paul Johnson. Guests David Simmonds and David Strachan also found their way on stage to entertain the audience. The Sine sisters are also among the volunteers committed to help with a large yard sale for the Loyalist Humane Society Aug. 16 and 17. -Staff

Personal awareness key, but lifeguards offer extra security

THIS weekend, every person entering the beaches at Sandbanks and North Beach provincial parks will receive a post card with a list of water safety tips, essentially reminding them they are not invincible and that anyone can potentially be in danger on the water if they are not careful about their actions. Indeed, the reminder shared on these cards as a part of a new initiative supported by the Hastings and Prince Edward Counties Health Unit should be posted on the signage at every beach and it should be something people remember. Unfortunately, there is no level of swimming proficiency Canadians must reach to be able to swim on a beach, nor is there any guarantee that every person in this country is going to have learned the vital lifesaving skills that may matter in seconds when trained help is unavailable or delayed in reaching a dangerous scene. Fortunately, in that regard, there is a push on now to ensure that every Ontario high school student learns CPR skills before graduation. Many beaches, fortunately, are busy places and there is often someone with those skills on hand, but past tragedies show that hasn’t always been the case. Even if parents managed to heed the call to take responsibility for their own actions and those of their children at all times on our beaches — as the campaign suggests — the overall safety of patrons would probably increase greatly. Still, however, even experienced swimmers can find themselves in dangerous situations they didn’t plan for with little sense of security and few people ready to offer the help they need to avoid tragedy. With that in mind, we’d like to see the province’s Ministry of Natural Resources take a good look at its beaches and do cost evaluations for the provision of lifeguard services, particularly in areas where there is a known current and where families with inexperienced swimmers are likely to go. Advocate John Watt has it right that a person up higher who can survey a whole beach would have the ability to spot danger more quickly that someone in the immediate area of that danger and thus, that person could react more quickly. One could certainly look at Ontario’s meagre financial books and the fact that a $16 daily admission to the beach is already fairly taxing on the pocket book, coupled with the relatively low percentage of drownings at provincial parks and decide that the extra layer of security is something people may not be able or willing to pay for, but the discussion likely shouldn’t stop right there. Two of Ontario’s most popular tourist beaches, those at Cobourg and Grand Bend, on Lake Huron north of London, are municipally operated and neither charges swimmers to use the beach. There must be some revenue stream, coupled with public conscience that allows both to continue to spend money for lifeguard services. Perhaps something in one of their models would work in provincial parks.

Live music and theatre highlight summer calendar

Live entertainment is a highlight of summer family programs each summer at the public library and the coming weeks have a number of note. On Wednesday, July 31 at 11 a.m. at the Wellington branch of the library, Kingston author Sarah Tsiang will be reading from her book A Flock of Shoes. Full of whimsy, this circular children’s tale is enhanced by rich, evocative language and delicate illustrations that are sure to delight any young person. The author will also be making a craft based on her book with the children who attend the reading. On Thursday, Aug. 1 at the Bloomfield Town Hall at 2 p.m., the Mystic Drumz present a musical adventure to find Marshmallow Island. Meet all the hilarious characters in this show that blends multicultural music themes and audience participation. Featuring incredible sound effects and eclectic instruments sourced from around the world, this is a performance that all ages will enjoy. The next day, Friday, Aug. 2 at 11 a.m. at the Picton branch library, the ever popular Barefoot Players from the Queen’s University drama department return to the county with Play On, a family friendly adaptation of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night. “The Barefoot Players have performed for the library a few times, and they are always a big hit,” says Library CEO Barbara Sweet. “Their Shakespeare adaptations are enormously entertaining and a perfect introduction to Shakespeare for young audiences.” Another theatre connection that the library is pleased to make this summer is with the Festival Players. The talented cast from the theatre’s Young Players troupe will visit two library branches to share a very special presentation. Everyone is invited at 2 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 2 to the Wellington branch library, and again on Saturday, Aug. 3 to the Picton branch library,


to catch a sneak preview of The Festival Players for Families production of Laura Secord. Written by Sandra Cardinal and directed by ElizaJane Scott, the play centres on the ordinary woman who made an extraordinary journey during the War of 1812. Sometimes fanciful and always fun, this premiere of a new Canadian musical includes a singing cow and a dance called the Blackfly Stomp, which will be taught by the cast during their library visits. At the Ameliasburgh branch of the library, join us for Sing Around the World with the talented Sam Hirst on Tuesday, Aug. 6 at 2 p.m. The talented musician and singer will entertain the entire family with her engaging style and unique repertoire. The full line up of live performances and fun programs can be viewed on the library’s online calendar at: www.peclibrary. A reminder that there is a fundraising dance with The Reasons to benefit the Library and County museums on Friday, July 26 from 8 p.m. to midnight at the Prince Edward Community Centre in Picton. Tickets are $20 per person, or $35 per couple and available at the Wellington and Picton branches of the library. For credit card orders, call Jennifer Lyons at 613-4762148 ext. 248.

Last week’s editorial on Harper Conservatives disturbs reader

Your editorial on Stephen Harper's Conservatives is disturbing on number of fronts. It is correct on the notion that Harper has a majority slate, clearly on a thirty percent range of voters. This translate to around third of Canadians who support the right-wing agenda of the government. The comparison of this government to corporate life is flawed in that at least in the business world , misdeeds or wrong-headed operations happily end up in the dump. Not so with Harper. We are forced to put up with him for four long years. Moreover, in the manner of our outdated system of voting the horror of repeating the last election in putting Harper back in office is possible with far less than the 50% . The elected officials of all stripes were put there by the voters to represent us, not follow the agenda of a control-freak who has his , not our, agenda. To cite a few examples, Harper's govern-


The Picton Gazette

ment has directed our tax dollars to ship designs, aircraft purchases, paint his plane in conservative colours, build prisons and the list goes on. On the other side, he has cut down essential services such as proper control of rail , food, environment and fisheries to pay for his private directives. Several drastic paradigm shift must take place to bring about a caring and loving government in Ottawa. First, the Senate has clearly become totally dysfunctional and extremely costly . The money saved from this fiasco could finance all cuts to public service including the CBC . Rep by Pop would be high on my list . This could bring about the removal of a minority forming a government in power. This move may have the effect of encouraging more people to come out to cast their right to vote. Ken Koyama Picton

Additional hospital cuts expected in coming months

About 10 year ago when I first started writing to the media my goal was to keep the residents of Pr. Ed. County informed about service cuts to PECMH. That goal has not changed a decade down the road. My primary concern has always been that it is cost prohibitive for many county residents to travel to Belleville for services that are no longer available at PECMH. The following cuts are about to take place at PECMH in less than two months. At the end of August we will lose the two maternity beds and maternity will close. In the past 180 maternity related tests a year have been done on women who are expecting. Hopefully the Quinte Health Care Corporation (QHC) will release a statement saying where these tests will now be performed .In early September, four beds will close on the medical floor. The original QHC plan

was to take seven beds plus the two from maternity and reduce us from 21 beds to 12 In September they will take four beds from the medical floor and next year they will take three more. We will then be down to 12 beds. Carolyn Corbin our dietician at PECMH for the last 20 years will be sent to Belleville and Trenton in Sept. We have not been told who will look after In and Out Patient counselling. The Family Health Team has a part time Dietician but I suspect that her workload is already heavy. The weekly pulmonary function testing clinic was discontinued this year. I suspect that these patients now have to travel to Belleville. Urologist Dr. Jim Wilson who would travel from Kingston to Picton for 30 years to operate a clinic and perform surgery has now retired. He asked urologists from Belleville if they would be interested in coming to

Picton to run a urology clinic. Apparently there was not any interest. Dr. Wilson by the way was very well liked and will be missed. In September the lab will close completely. There was a concern that those patients who attend clinics in Belleville such as oncology or are having surgery would have to travel to the Belleville General (BGH) lab for blood work. My understanding now is that QHC has worked out an an agreement with Life Labs so that these patients will be able to have their lab work done in Picton. Presently this work is performed by a phlebotomist at PECMH. This phlebotomist has many duties such as taking blood and doing ECG's on inpatients and then packaging the blood and and sending it to BGH. The nurses will now have to perform these duties once the lab closes. There will not be any extra nursing staff provided to per-

form these extra duties. The other service that has not been cut is the operating room where the only surgery performed is endoscopy. I suspect that once the new operating rooms in Belleville are completed the scopes will move to BGH. The surgeons that are operating at PECMH are also doing the same procedures at Campbellford. I also understand that Trenton is interested in doing scopes again. I must add that the operating room at PECMH is very efficient and the surgeries performed here are less expensive than BGH. Hopefully this has been a help to you in seeing the direction that your hospital is taking. If the operating room closes next year the pillage by QHC and the bureaucrats will be complete. Please speak up for your local hospital while you can. Fran Renoy Picton

Circumstances should not dictate precedent-setting policy

At the recent July 17 planning public council meeting, the committee decided that the illegal conversion of previous storage buildings to rental units on a rural residential property in Hallowell was an important contribution to the County's affordable housing challenges. Although the staff report from Engineering, Development and Works recommended denying the application because it did not conform with any local or provincial policies,it was hard to understand that not one of the councillors in attendance saw any reason why the application should not be approved. The committee also decided not to put any deadline on requiring the applicant to install an appropriate septic

system, waiving the usual oneyear completion requirement which was also confusing and worrying. The staff report pointed out that affordable housing is best directed to the settlement areas where infrastructure and public services are provided. One councillor argued that allowing new residential units on rural properties would actually save the County money in infrastructure costs since the costs of water and sewage services would be carried by the property owner. He completely ignored existing affordable housing policies to concentrate affordable housing in higher density areas such as Picton and Wellington where not only water and sewer services are already in place, but where

access to medical and dental and shopping are available. Since we live beside the illegally converted units we made a submission and a deputation to the committee outlining our concerns about the environmental impact of the development and about the dangerous precedent of permitting conversion of out buildings to residential units on rural properties. The applicant for rezoning had personal financial reasons for illegally converting storage space on the property to residential space. She told her story and showed the committee pictures of the tenants currently living in the units. The committee seemed very moved by her story. However, we didn't understand why an individ-

ual's personal circumstances should be grounds for setting a precedent that could see anyone with outbuildings and the desire to make money going ahead with conversion of the buildings and telling council after the fact that their desire was to create affordable housing. The final decision on this application will be made at the Aug. 27 council meeting. If you share our concern about how this precedent will affect future development in rural areas of Prince Edward County please call or write your councillor or register to make a deputation at the August council meeting.

Dave Nickerson is perfectly correct to point out that Ostrander Point was once used as a bombing range. However, Eric Gillespie established during the ERT (check for yourself, April 29)

that the "practice bombs" in question did not contain high explosive, so visions of an Ostrander Point conflated with the closing scenes of Apocalypse Now are misleading. Nonetheless it is rea-

sonable to ask why a species that survived being hit on the shell by a practice bomb can't survive a wind turbine or two. But the Blanding's is a species in decline, and as such once existed in greater

numbers than it does now. What it has survived does not justify further abuse which it may not.

County seeking additional input at open house Tuesday

Age-in-place plans open for discussion Chad IbboTSoN

StAff wRiteR

The municipality is again seeking public input for the age-in-place master p lan and will be hosting an open house next week to discuss the issue. The County issued a release this week announcing the date of a second open house to garner public input into the plan. The first was held on June 26 in which members of the public were asked to provide their ideas and comments on a series of sample master plans. The second open house, scheduled for Tuesday, July 30 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at H.J. McFarland Home, will look to present plans incorporating those comments to collect additional responses from the community. “Supporting the need for a seniors’ community that encourages active living and community integration is a priority for the County of Prince Edward,” the release says. “The agein-place concept was approved by county Council in 2012 and envisions the development of the lands around H.J. McFarland Memorial Home to support residents’ transition into increasing levels of assisted

‘The County is committed to developing a plan that meets the long-term needs of residents.’


living.” Zoning for the approximately 25-acre piece of property allows for health care uses such as clinics, hospitals and nursing home. The property may also be used for affordable housing, whether that be retirement buildings, town homes, low-rise apartments of seniors housing complexes. Additionally, the land can feature various recreation uses such as parks, paths and seating areas. The age-in-place master plan will guide the overall development of the property. The release says the upcoming open house will be the final opportunity for the public to provide input on the plan before it goes to council. “The purpose of the

open house is to review the conceptual designs stemming from feedback collected at the first meeting, and share thoughts on the master plan before it’s presented to Prince Edward County council,” the release says. Anyone can attend the open house. Mayor Peter Mertens said in the release the plan will look to support the needs of an aging Prince Edward County population. “Not only does the agein-Place concept support the needs of our community, but it will also help to foster economic growth and development,” he said. “The County is committed to developing a plan that meets the long-term needs of residents.” The last public meeting saw members of the public, who had previously been leery of the project, looking at the concept in a more optimistic light. McFarland Home family council chair Jan Welbanks said earlier this month she was excited about the upcoming meeting. “I'm really looking forward to that. I'm now on a positive swing here with this property,” she said.

Seniors above 65 can fish for free on Ontario waters with no licence

Most Ontario residents need an Ontario-issued Outdoors Card and fishing licence tag to fish in Ontario if they are at least 18 years old but have not reached their 65th birthday. People 65 and older don’t need to have an Oudoors Card and fishing licence to be able to fish in Ontario. The Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources deems a person to be the holder of a recreational fishing licence if they are residents of Ontario and Canada under 18 years old, or 65 years of age or older and in possession of any licence, permit, certificate, or identification card issued by the Government of Canada or a provincial or territorial government of Canada that indicates their name and date of birth. According to the MNR,



those who are also deemed to be the holder of a recreational fishing licence is a person who is a disabled Ontario and Canadian residents eligible for and in

The guide compiles information for more than 2,200 locations around the province. Staff from the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Ministry of the Environment collect the fish which are then analyzed by the ministry of the Environment for a variety of substances, including mercury, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), mirex, DDT and dioxins. The results are used to develop the advisory tables which give size-specific consumption advice for each species and location tested. Find the guide at the MOE website at The Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources is looking for volunteers to keep records of their fishing trips. Participants are asked to keep a diary in

their tackle box and complete a diary page each time they fish and submit their diary each fall. There’s a draw to win a filleting knife and a recognition program as well.

its for those who fish here in Prince Edward County by going to the MNR website and looking at the “Ontario Fishing Regulations Summary 2013”. It includes information on licences, catch limits, bait and gear restrictions, and even maps to show you what rules apply in what areas. I had a look at the link and determined that Prince Edward County appears to be in Zone 20. The information is pretty detailed and there’s even a video to explain how to use this resource document. Before you head out fishing you’ll want to consult the 27th edition of the Guide to Eating Ontario Sport Fish which gives advice to anglers and their families for choosing sport fish to minimize exposure to toxins.

Move has given DeMille added appreciation for local ingredients

CHEF, from page 4

First, it showed DeMille out in the region trying to source his ingredients. He drives up to the water buffalo farm in Stirling in an attempt to get both meat for sausages and mozzarella for a salad. While at the farm, DeMille is encouraged to test the milk used to make the cheese — and to actually milk the animal to take his sample. In a hilarious scene, the chef almost fled the milking parlour without the spoils. “I was a little scared. Someone said they’re like dogs, they have their own personality,” he said. “It kicked me. They’re used to it, but it’s still a challenge milking an animal that big that smells like that. One wrong move and you could be done for.” DeMille said while the bit was fun, his main aim in going to the farm is to show

the quality of suppliers there are within a close radius to the county, particularly for such a rare animal to Ontario. That creamy buffalo cheese that would be the perfect topper for a salad also seemed to be a major source of frustration in the episode for DeMille, however, as the camera rolled and doubts loomed whether it would arrive. “It was a little like reality TV... You ask yourself ‘Is this happening or is it a set up?’ DeMille said. He added, however, that sometimes in the world of fine cuisine, the production doesn’t always go according to script. “That sort of stuff happens every day, things don't arrive or the texture of the cheese isn't the same as it was last week,” he said. “You work with what you have. you really have to think on your feet when you’re in the kitchen.” DeMille was also shown


of antiques, furniture, architecturals, industrial at the Barn at West Lake

buying produce at Hagerman’s farm stand, baking bread at Humble Bread, and looking in some unexpected places for the food that would make a first impression. He said one thing the show illustrated was that he gained more appreciation for local food and the value of the seasons being in Prince Edward County. Now, DeMille makes sure he finds in-season cherries, raspberries, and blueberries for desserts and tries to work in things like local peas in salads and risottos. He indicated he has a real appreciation for this season and the availability of so many great foods in the county at affordable prices, rather than higher priced goods imported from areas like South America in the winter.

the county is on the cusp of receiving that acclaim from culinary crowds who previously wouldn’t have strayed from Montreal and from Toronto. The segment also shows several scenes of DeMille riding his bicycle often down local roads and offered commentary in which both he and his wife, Erin, say the pace of life here suits them.

Adding to the challenge of his first meal, the normally accessible DeMille conceded it was a bit of an added challenge dealing with the camera crews in his kitchen space. “You're trying to cook and you have them always asking questions, like ‘Can you do that again,’ or ‘Can we get a s hot of this?’ Having a really good kitchen crew helped a lot.” Ultimately, though he has yet to see the final copy of the episode, DeMille said he is hopeful that it will offer better recognition for the restaurant and himself, but also the county as an emerging culinary area. “You don’t have to just come here to visit your grandmother or go to the Sandbanks. You can come here and always have a good meal.” DeMille said he believes

A woman from the Wellington area asked recently about growing rhododendrons in the county as she had grown them in Vancouver. The Master Gardener she had encountered, Barbara Stock, wisely advised her to discuss with her neighbours as to what they were growing successfully in their gardens. There are not many gardeners in the county that grow rhododendrons successfully. The ideal conditions for rhododendrons are temperate climates with sufficient rain or water sources,

and acid soils with a pH balance between 5 and 6. A neutral pH is 7. Given these ideal conditions, it is not surprising that rhododendrons in south coastal B.C., with a very different climate and soil type to ours, grow well and to a considerable size depending on the variety. Despite this, many people go to a great deal of trouble to grow rhododendrons in the generally alkaline soils of southern Ontario. There are rhododendron societies in Toronto and elsewhere. As well,

these plants are grown in the county with our alkaline soils and also frequent periods of drought. Two native rhododendrons are found in Ontario. One grows only in the tundra, Rhodora lapponicum; the other grows east and south of Ottawa, R. canadense. Neither is found in encyclopedias of Canadian garden plants. In fact the rhododendrons and azaleas (a name given to two rhododendron species) that are found in Canadian gardens are from Asia. The actual rhododendron cultivars in our gardens would be more likely to come from Europe, U.S.A. and Canada. According to a writer for Garden Making, Judith Adams, there are PJM rhododendrons that are suitable for alkaline soil, and thus southern Ontario gardens. Whilst like all rhododendrons they prefer acidic

soils, they have the ability to “buffer” alkaline soils and remain healthy. Depending on the cultivar they can tolerate zones five or even four. PJM rhododendrons are hybrids and were developed by a man with those initials. Overtime, a large number of cultivars created from these hybrids also have this buffering ability. Understandably these are considered the easiest rhododendrons to grow in Southern Ontario. They are particularly suitable for novice rhododendron gardeners as well as those who have been unsuccessful in the past. The flowers tend to be vibrantly coloured in varying shades of bright pink and lilac, which are not appealing to those who prefer more muted shades. As well, their very popularity makes them unappealing to others. Nonetheless it is a good place to start unless either of these facts makes them an unappealing addition to your garden. The difficulties in maintaining a sufficiently consistent acid soil for rhododendrons leads to yellowing leaves and fewer flowers, which is a problem frequently seen in rhododendrons that grow here. Sulphur powder or pellets provide only a temporary fix before the soil needs further augmentation. Similar problems are experience with any other method of adding acidity to soil. In the county there are a number of additional challenges to be faced, other than acidic soils, in growing rhododendrons. First, all rhododendrons do not do well in dry wind swept areas and require areas that are protected. They do best in moist soils so areas with limited accessible water, given our frequent drought conditions, are not good choices. Rhododendrons have shallow root systems so they can be planted near deep rooted trees but need to avoid areas where trees or other plants have shallow root systems. PJM hybrids and their cultivars require more sun that most rhododendrons, varying from partial shade to full sun. This would be indicated on the plant tag. These plants are resistant to most pests and diseases. When planting, it is important to use lots of compost including composted manure. Compost should be included as the bottom layer of the annual mulching process used to support soil moisture. Because the level of acidity is similar to the acidity of coffee, the grounds can make a good addition to compost. While these plants can manage without acidic soil they can also make good use of any available acidity PJM rhododendrons can be sourced through local nurseries and through the internet. Often it is helpful to have a list of the names of PJM hybrids and cultivars from the internet as information on plant tags can be limited or hard to locate.

Their mess, your problem?

Do you live beside an eyesore property? You know the kind – a lawn full of weeds, a rusty car in the driveway, peeling paint and a sagging roof. According to Phil Dorner, president of the Ontario Real Estate Association, not only does the shabby place next door impact the aesthetics of your street but it can affect the sale price of your home and prolong selling time. “Home sellers can be so focused on the condition of their own home that they forget how important the appearance of the neighbour’s house and

A neighbour’s mess can hurt your home’s value

property is for potential buyers,” says Dorner. “While there’s no doubt that approaching a neighbour whose property is in bad repair is tricky, it is absolutely worth having the conversation so that their mess doesn’t overshadow the true value of your home.” Dorner recommends talking to your Realtor about the best way to broach the subject with your neighbour. Realtors have experience talking to homeowners about these kinds of issues so they won’t be fazed. There’s al-

most always a solution and your Realtor can help you find the best one without getting emotional or worked up about the issue. Here are some tried and true tactics to dealing with a messy property next door: • Talk to your neighbour: Let them know you’re planning to sell and gently ask them to clean up their front and back yard. If they are elderly and unable to do the work themselves, offer to look into free or inexpensive services that can help

or offer to roll up your sleeves and do it yourself. • Locate the owner: When living beside a renter who’s unwilling to assume responsibility, ask your Realtor to help you track down the owner or landlord and speak with them. • Contact the city: Many municipalities have bylaws about the appearance of lawns and homes. See if any are applicable in your area and speak to a bylaw officer to find a solution.

• Create a diversion: If they refuse to cooperate, detract from their house by placing an eye-catching tree or row of flowers at the entry of your own property. • Don’t be afraid to call for back-up: Remind yourself that if a property is in really bad shape, more often than not your other neighbours will be keen to fix the problem as well. Dorner adds, “Get together with your Realtor and discuss proactive ways of dealing with the issue – sometimes it’s as simple as having a conversation or being prepared to offer a hand if it is a scenario where your neighbour is unable to maintain their property.”

Potential Dukes impress coach in Boston tournament

Three Wellington vets named all-stars following Senior Chowder Cup play Jason Parks

Staff writer

In their second year attending the annual summer showcase, the Wellington Dukes found the chowder in Boston much to their liking in 2013. An entry, built mostly of current players and prospective Dukes made a strong showing at the John Cunniff Senior Chowder Cup Classic this past weekend, making it to the bracket final where they lost 2-1 to the Canadian Future Pros. Wellington Dukes coach and general manager Marty Abrams said he was impressed at the level of play of this hand-selected team that went by the name of Chowder Cup Crusaders and played in the Jr. A Elite bracket. “The Sunday playoff round had unbelievable pace and intensity. I was so proud of them. I walked away from that arena with a real good feeling about where we are at, especially concerning our returning players,” Abrams said. “They were outstanding.” Current Dukes Zach Bishop, Erick Delaurentis and Cam Nicoll showed well at the event and were named to the tournament all-star team. After going 2-0-1 in the preliminary round, the Crusaders went undefeated in their first three playoff games that consisted of one 30 minute stop time period. In the opener against the Cougars (a club consisting of Central Canada Junior A

Perhaps they felt the heat. Or maybe they were motivated when the Gazette suggested a four-way tie for first place after last Thursday's action. Either way, the Roblin Family Plumbing Copperheads put some distance between themselves and the rest of the Prince Edward County Men's Fastball league pack this week, winning a pair and opening a three-point cushion on the second-place Beatty Seeds Huskers. The Copperheads (7-2-3) and their 17 points head up the league, while the Huskers (7-4-0) hold down the next spot at 14 points. The Copperheads extended their lead thanks to an 8-2 win over the Warren's Excavating Ameliasburgh A's. Chris Roblin jacked a home run in the early going for the Snakes while Dave Moore had a pair of hits to help pace the Snakes offence. Infielder Adam Smith had a pair of nice basket catches to keep the Athletics at bay. Will Claus earned the win. In Tweed, Danford Contracting blanked the Tweed Midgets 5-0. On Thursday in Picton, it was Roblin's whitewashing the Terra Vista Rockies 9-0. Claus was dominant from the rubber, picking up the victory and Josh Carney was hot with the bat, picking up a pair of hits and driving home two runners. In late action, Beatty Seeds had a statement game against Whitepine Watershed, blanking the visitors 30. The battery of pitcher Dan Wallwork and catcher Rob LaMoore was dominant for the Huskers. Denis Smith drove in a pair in the win. Rounding out the rest of the league standings, Whitepine Watershed (5-2-2, 12 points) and Danford Contracting (6-3-0, 12 points) are tied for third. Terra Vista (4-5-3, 11 points) has fifth place locked down while the A's (3-6-1) are in sixth. The Tweed Midgets (0-101) are living in the PECMFL cellar. Tonight in Picton, Beatty Seeds and Roblin's hook for a crucial match up that could help determine the eventual regular season champion.

players), the Crusaders advanced 2-1 thanks to a shootout goal by Delaurentis and a regulation goal by Nicoll. Adam Wood only surrendered one goal through the 30 minute regulation period, the ten minute overtime and the shootout. The Picton Pirates netminder that was part of an otherworldly tandem for the local Junior C club this past season was sensational for the Wellington entry. “Adam Wood was spectacular this weekend,” Abrams said. “He shared the duties with Eugene Makarski who also played well, but in back-to-back games on Sunday, Wood played outstanding in goal for us.” Makarski got the call in Game 2 of the playoff round and the Crusaders got past the Wildcats Elite, a USbased all star team, 4-2. Evan Erickson, Delaurentis, Abbott Girduckis and Luc Knight all had goals for the Crusaders. Wood took over the netminding in the semifinal game and shutout the Orleans Express as the Crusaders won 2-0. Delaurentis had the game winner while Girduckis added an empty netter in the late going. In the final, Girduckis would score and Wood was great, put it wasn't enough to get past the Pros (a team built by Toronto Lakeshore Patriots head coach Jason Fortier and consisting of OJHL talent), who won 2-1.

Decision could help Dukes add some talent near the deadline

HOST, from page 1

Abrams said the club would be calling on the local citizenry to get on board and purchase a season ticket that will allow them to purchase a DudleyHewitt Cup ticket package a great rate. Currently, 2013-2014 Dukes season ticket holders can purchase a DudleyHewitt Cup ticket package for $85 and that provides entry to all eight tournament games. “If we can sell 5-600 of these packages, that will go a long ways to towards meeting the DudleyHewitt Cup operational budget which will be six figures,” Abrams explained. “The tournament has to pay for the travel expenses of the visiting teams.” While Abrams wasn't offering any details as to the delay of the DudleyHewitt Cup announcement, it's widely known that travel costs agreements, particularly with the SIJHL, were a point of contention when drafting an contract between the par-

ties and the OHF. It's rumoured that the 2013 Dudley-Hewitt Cup champion Wisconsin Wilderness and the host North Bay Trappers are still at odds over some travel expenses. The delay likely hurt the Wellington Dukes in terms of some recruitment wars, however, Abrams figures there will be at least a couple of players that will be looking to make a run to a national championship at the trade deadline. “There might be some players out there that might want to come to Wellington to play in the DudleyHewitt Cup and gain some pretty big exposure and we will look at any and all options,' he added. 2014 Dudley-Hewitt Cup ticket packages are now available to all Wellington Dukes season ticket holders at a discounted price of $85 for all eight games of the Dudley Hewitt Cup. Please contact the Dukes office at 613-3992292 or contact team executive member Betty Masterson at 613-399-1573 for more ticket information.

whether to delay a decision on the district while more property owners could be It took less than a minute consulted ultimately resulted for council to reconsider its in a lost deferral motion. decision on the Picton HerThen came the main motion to approve the district, which also lost in a 7â&#x20AC;&#x201C;7 tie vote. After the vote there was a pause as, it seemed, many were trying to figure out where to go from there. A recorded vote was called on the motion and this time it passed. While some councillors seemed outraged at the vote, Mayor Peter Mertens said council did not contravene the municipality's procedure

vey seemed to contain leading questions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a difference of opinion but, if I look at the second survey that went out, some of the questions again could elicit that type of an answer,â&#x20AC;? Mertens said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Adequate consultation was done in the first place, efforts were made to contact all the property owners numerous times â&#x20AC;&#x201D; not just once. They chose not to respond, they chose not to read the documents that were available in a number of different venues.â&#x20AC;? Mertens said the process used to come up with the plan was lengthy and there were many opportunities for the public to come to meetings and discuss their concerns. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The process was fair, we have a good document and it's going to work well for downtown Picton,â&#x20AC;? he said. Mertens said the plan will bring planning consistency to Picton and help protect heritage properties from being lost. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have so many heritage buildings. The first thing, if nothing else, is we have to protect them,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;â&#x20AC;Ś Without this in place we could have another building that gets torn down.â&#x20AC;? Councillor Terry Shortt was among those who advocated for a deferral of the decision until more consultation could take place, saying there was no urgency in getting the plan in place and it was important to make sure all those affected are properly consulted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was disappointed.

read it, get into and bring forward any concerns,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The fact that that was taken away from the finite few that this document is going to directly affect, I found very disappointing.â&#x20AC;? Shortt said there's always a possibility that the way the decision was made could ruffle some feathers in the community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(The consultants) said they didn't get reaction from a lot of the building owners,â&#x20AC;? Shortt said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That gives me concern because once building owners are taken to task on a number of things that are written into the document, there's a good possibility there may be backlash.â&#x20AC;? While Shortt has always supported the intention of the Heritage Conservation District plan, he said he was disappointed Main Street property owners didn't have more time to comment on the plan. The district, as designated under Part V of the Ontario Heritage Act, will cover a stretch of Main Street from Lake street to the harbour and will designate buildings and other features along the street as having heritage value. The plan sets guidelines and design principles to manage any major modifications to the outside of existing buildings and any future development within the district. Firstly, the plan makes it clear what the worthy heritage attributes are, noting the diversity of building styles which range from 1940s-1950s homes to early 1900s commercial buildings. The plan then looks to protect those heritage features while at the same time allowing new buildings to be constructed and old ones to be renovated. This is accomplished through setting out principles that new development must follow including limits on height, the type of signage used, and the look of storefronts. The plan does not cover the inside of buildings. Heritage permits will have to be applied for different types of alterations to buildings. Minor exterior repairs like weather stripping and caulking of windows, and any interior renovation work does not require a permit. Major heritage permits would be required for things like the demolition, relocation, or extensive alterations to storefronts. Additions to portions of a building or replacement of exterior windows would also require the major permit. A minor heritage permit will be required for smaller alterations to storefronts, additions to portions of the building or replacement of exterior elements. Both the Picton BIA and the heritage advisory committee have expressed their support for the plan.

Artisans receive enthusiastic audience from youth PIONEERS, from page 1

“They liked the blacksmith, but this might be the one,” Tom said as they headed for the pottery building. “This one is hands-on and that might be the topper.” Inside, resident potter Tony Campbell was helping young Rachael Weaver roll out a clay plate and stamp it with images of some of her favourite animals. Campbell said she felt an important part of her job at the Red Barns, particularly on an open-house sort of weekend, was to engage the youth in traditional arts. “For young people to be exposed to art, it's a wonderful outlet ,” she said. “This is an opportunity to discover what it is to do art. There’s so little money in the schools these days to teach it.” Campbell indicated it is an important form of expression for people to learn, to do, and to appreciate regardless of their age. A pair of her longtime friends, Jean Brinkos and Joyce Young, were representing the Prince Edward County Quilters’ Guild as part of a demonstration of the fibre arts that also included spinners and knitters. They said in some years, the younger people weren’t always interested in seeing their crafts but this year their exhibition area wasn’t just a place for parents to visit. “The children were very interested in how we did our quilting and what we did it

with,” said Brinkos. “Many young people have been volunteering here too. It’s nice for us to see the interest.” Indeed, Watson said the event wouldn’t run without 24 of her friends and family who turn out to volunteer to offer the various games, give demonstrations, and cook the stone-fired pizza and pulled pork sandwiches that attracted a crowd to the Piggly barbecue area. Bill Knispel, otherwise known as the Kilted Carver, is one of those volunteers. He said he’s been carving for eight years and owes much of his confidence to Watson, who had taught and encouraged him. He said it is a way to help give back to a cause that’s close to her heart as

thing, he stressed, stays with patients suffering from MS and their families here in Prince Edward. That cause appealed to many guests, including the Philip family. They came to get a better understanding of their son Vasko’s experience at a pioneer camp at the Red Barns, but also noted MS was a cause near to them as well. “J.P.’s sister has MS,” Valerie Philip said of her husband. “We’re happy to come and do what we can.”

well as an excuse to play. “Heather and Pete have been do an awesome job and they’ve been so good to all of us,” he said. “ This is a beautiful place to come and carve.” Knispel added one of the best parts of the Pioneer Days is that all the money donated for admissions, raffles, and games goes directly to the Prince Edward MS Society with no overhead kept by the Red Barns or by the local administration.

municipalities' support of housing projects. Among the noted benefits of having hospice in the municipality were a decrease in hospital admissions, length of hospital stays, and keeping patients in their homes longer, and cohesiveness with the municipality's Age in Place concept.

Council has awarded a special one-time grant to Hospice Prince Edward to offset the cost of upgrading water lines at the new residential hospice to support a sprinkler system. The committee of the whole recommended the one-time grant to cover the cost of building permit and tapping fees and allocated the cost of upgrading the sprinkler system to the community grants budget. The total costs associated with the Hospice Prince Edward request were pegged at $11,268. Councillors didn't need much discussion after

receiving a report from staff which recommended council grant the Hospice request. Hospice executive director Nancy Parks expressed her gratitude at last week's committee-of-the-whole meeting. “We're really appreciative of the staff recommendation,” she said. “We've

Members of assembly to review council size ready to begin work Group of 24 participants chosen from invitation initially sent to 5,000 residents of Prince Edward Chad Ibbotson

Staff wrIter

The community members who will make up the citi-

zens' assembly have been chosen and will now embark on a process to recommend the best size for county council.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;You Can Rely On Our Serviceâ&#x20AC;?

The municipality sent out a release last week saying the members have been selected and are expected to begin work within the next week. The Prince Edward County Citizens' Assembly â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which was selected to review and make a recommendation on the size of council in April â&#x20AC;&#x201D; will consist of 24 members, 12 men and 12 women. The 24 members were chosen from an invitation that was initially sent to 5,000 citizens. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The assembly members come from diverse backgrounds and represent the broad-ranging interests of county citizens,â&#x20AC;? the release

says. Queen's University political science professor Dr. Jonathan Rose will lead the citizens' assembly for council. The process is expected to cost $25,000. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The goal is to bring diverse views to bear on a common problem,â&#x20AC;? Rose said in the release. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We will bring the group members together, engage them with three days of education, discussion and deliberation, and then ask them to make a recommendation to council.â&#x20AC;? The citizens' assembly will look the answer the question, â&#x20AC;&#x153;How many municipal councillors should represent the citizens of Prince Edward County?â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The issue that the panel is being asked to examine focuses on a question that, at first glance, seems fairly simple,â&#x20AC;? the release says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;â&#x20AC;Ś There are, however, some big challenges at the heart of that question, particularly the need to ensure democratic principles are respected while still keep-

ing an eye on the history and traditions of local government in the county.â&#x20AC;? The assembly will meet a total of three times at Picton Town Hall in July and August. Mayor Peter Mertens said in the release he's enthusiastic the panel has been assembled. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am excited that we have an open and participatory process under way,â&#x20AC;? Mertens said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Based on the large number of people who were willing to give up three Saturdays in the summer to work through this, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d say there is a lot of enthusiasm out there for engaging in these issues.â&#x20AC;? The issue has been a divisive one on council for years. The motion to choose the citizens' assembly model was passed by council by a slim 9â&#x20AC;&#x201C;7 vote with councillors Jamie Forrester, Alec Lunn, Brian Marisett, Janice Maynard, Nick Nowitski, Dianne O'Brien and Terry Shortt voting against.

Atholâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cherry Jubilee this weekend

Cherry Valley is getting set for another helping local history with the second annual Cherry Jubilee this weekend. Things get started this Friday night with a concert featuring Montreal duo AroarA and Toronto-based Jennifer Castle at 8 p.m. in the Cherry Valley United Church. Tickets will be $15 at he door. The fun continues on Saturday at the Athol Town Hall with family events and live music by E.Z. Country South and guest Lorraine Sine from 12â&#x20AC;&#x201C;4 p.m. Events feature old-time games, a family scavenger hunt, and history walks. Wood-fired pizza, ice cream from the 4-H Club ice cream truck and free cake are all on the menu. The event looks to be a hit with the community as both seatings for the long table lunch featuring Angelo Bean's barbecued Riesling sausages are already sold out. However, everyone (over 19) is invited out to a free dance at Athol Town Hall featuring local band Little Bluff which comprises Drew Ackerman on guitar and vocals, Clint Ryan on bass and vocals, Stephen Empringham on drums and Martin Soldat on keyboard and vocals. -Chad Ibbotson, Staff
