As part of its corporate realignment process the municipality will have at least two fewer high level management employees by the end of the year. Chief Administrative Officer Merlin Dewing said in an interview Wednesday morning that the positions of commissioner of planning and commissioner of recreation, parks and culture would be eliminated. Dewing said planning commissioner Gerry Murphy would stay with the County until the end of 2012 as director of the community development department and the municipality is currently negotiating an “exit package” with recreation, parks and culture commissioner Barry Braun. As reported earlier this year current public works commissioner Robert McAuley will now be commissioner of engineering, development and works and Susan Turnbull will continue in her role as commissioner of corporate services and finance. “They will be the two commissioners as part of the two commissioner system. The titles may change slightly,” he said. “They'll have added duties and responsibilities taking the uptake from the other two commissioners.” The news came to light after a lengthy closed session discussion at Tuesday night's council meeting where councillors voted to rescind the bylaws appointing the four commissioners. Dewing said those bylaws aren't necessary because the commissioner positions aren't statutory and recommended all four appointment bylaws be rescinded. “The only statutory component was in Susan's bylaw which had deputy treasurer, but she's no longer going to be deputy treasurer,” Dewing said. “They were just redundant pieces of legislation.”

Elks mark 100 years of benevolent service Picton lodge prepares for milestone event Chad Ibbotson Staff writer

Local Elks are gearing up for their 100th anniversary celebration and reflecting on their years with the organization. It's been a full century since the Elks of Canada opened their first chapter in British Columbia. Since then the organization has written a history of charitable contributions and community building with more than 15,000 members in over 250 lodges across the country. This week the Elks are celebrating all of their 100 years of making a difference at their national convention in Chilliwack, B.C. An estimated $15 million in donations and volunteer hours is contributed nation-

SECTION

Those struggling to cope with the limited open hours at the municipality's landfills and transfer sites will soon get a small measure of relief. During budget deliberations council voted to have the sites open Saturday's only but, with some councillors citing lineups and accumulating garbage, council voted 8–7 in favour of opening the Picton transfer site an additional day per week on Wednesdays. The site is expected to be open next Wednesday, Aug. 1. The decision shows a significant sway in opinions. councillor Barry Turpin had previously brought the issue up at the June 28 committeeof-the-whole meeting where it was met with a tepid response. The issue was again brought to the fore by councillor Kevin Gale on Tuesday evening where he said it was council's responsibility to provide adequate services, even in times of financial restraint. He said he was happy with Tuesday's decision. “Especially with the heat this summer, I'm getting calls from a lot of different people saying 'we need a place during the week to take our garbage,'” he said. “Council made a good decision. It's a minor hit on the budget, so I think it's good.” Corporate services and finance commissioner Susan Turnbull said at the meeting she couldn't say where the money for the extra day might come from. Gale said he wasn't worried. “We'll find it. We've got to find it someplace,” he said. Gale underscored his opinion at Tuesday's meeting with a comparison to another important municipal service — snow plowing. “If we had a million dollars in the budget for snow removal and we got dumped on in November and December and we spent a million dollars would we stop plowing the roads because we ran out of money?” he asked.

It's entitled Cornography, but the only thing seedy at the Small Pond Arts Collective on Sunday afternoon was the mention of Monsanto Corn or the function of factory farms. The second annual event that provides what is best described as an artistic look at our twisted connection with food was well attended with over 75 people taking part in several scenes including a funeral march for foods that should be banished and a traditional Punch and Judy puppet show that offered jabs at everything from the closure of Fifth Town Cheese company to the industrial wind turbine saga. Co-organizer Krista Dalby said it was when she and Small Arts co-founder MilĂŠ Murtanovski moved to Prince Edward County a few years ago and began growing their own food did they start to understand the

twined, we felt an event like Cornography would really resonate,â&#x20AC;? Dalby said. And while it celebrates most aspects of agriculture, Cornography also offers an opportunity to poke at current agriculture issues. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The modern food system is so broken and there are a lot of issues and a lot of things to say,â&#x20AC;? Dalby said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We did it in a lighthearted and humorous way, but there is a message.â&#x20AC;? The food funeral march allowed participants to write a type of food on a cardboard coffin and parade it about the grounds before burying it as a symbol of its potential banishment from the earth. Not surprisingly, a number of genetically modified types of food bit the dust Sunday as did fast food and the flesh of animals, cute, cuddly or otherwise. Some of the youngsters in the crowd took the opportunity to voice their disapproval of cheese, mushrooms and other foods that seem not to resonate with children with most children and those foods were banned as well. Other episodes included an musical foraging walk, a Mr. Potatohead craft for the children taking part as well as spoken word readings and a poem recital inside the silo. The day culminated with the cooking of do-ityourself pizzas baked in a new outdoor clay oven.

Canadian Foodgrains Bank growing project benefits from high commodity prices County wheat crop brings in record prices for aid organization AdAm BrAmBurger

Staff writer

While they may be seen as a curse by many, the dry weather conditions across North America were actually a blessing for the Prince Edward South growing project. This week, local farmers delivered 727 bushels of soft red wheat to the elevator, earning a record haul of $5,995.15 for the Canadian Foodgrains Bank. With a 41 matching program from the Canadian International Development Agency, that becomes a 29,975.75 yield. The interdenominational Canadian Foodgrains Bank uses crops and funds raised from such harvests to tackle hunger around the world through food assistance, providing communities ways to produce food and income for themselves, nutrition education, and public engagement and policy influence. Last year, the organization raised more than $11.8 million in cash and cashed-out grains. Project co-ordinator George Emlaw said the local growing effort was fortunate to be producing wheat in its growing cycle this year as droughts in the American mid-west have forced prices up considerably through the regulating body, the Chicago Board of Trade.

HArvest Brad Brummell takes crop off a field near the

southern end of County Rd. 10 Friday morning. This year, the growing project netted 727 bushels of soft red wheat from just under 11 acres of land (Adam Bramburger/Gazette staff) "Commodity prices are up, the price we got this year is up because of the world shortage," he said. "The price is about $305 a tonne, around $8.25 a bushel. That's pretty good. It was about $240 last year." Per bushel, that's about $6.77. Emlaw said with dry conditions locally in recent weeks, the weather has also provided ideal harvesting conditions for the Brummell family from Cherry Valley to take the crops off the fields as they're able to work the land early and finish late in the evening. That's important, he said, because it allows for the crop to be taken off the fields and transported with the ideal moisture to gain top prices at a grain elevator. The project consisted of nearly 11 acres of land, with Emlaw saying good yields of nearly 70 bushels per acre were collected. A straw

byproduct produced by the harvest would also be sold to help collect additional money either to be donated or to cover costs of additional crops.

In addition to the harvest, Emlaw said parishioners in the South Prince Edward Pastoral Charge — South Bay and Cherry Valley United Churches — also provided funding to the Canadian Foodgrains Bank, while urban partner Eastminster United Church in Belleville also provides financial support for the project as did a number of sponsors and donors. Pastor David Colwell, who has been working at the two southern county churches for the past two months, was on hand to witness his first harvest. He said it furthered his first impression of people here in the county that people are willing to help those in need, locally and elsewhere. "People are showing

they get the idea of taking care of each other," he said. "Some of these are people who otherwise may not be very active in the church, but they are taking their time and effort to put their all into this. People are living the Gospel, whether or not that's what they want to call it." Colwell said he was also impressed with the way the farmers were using all their resources to increase the benefit of the project. Emlaw said there are

about 300 growing projects across Canada. Many grow grains, but he said some communities have also been creative in producing other products or in fundraising for the effort. He said one project in southwestern Ontario features flowers grown in greenhouses, then sold. According to the Canadian Foodgrains Bank web site, the growing projects contribute about half of the money raised by the organization in any given year.

Consecon Community Day attempts to make village a destination Aug. 4 Soap box derby, car boot sales, wagon rides, puppet show among entertainment planned for annual celebration Chad Ibbotson

Staff writer

Organizers are inviting the public to shed the dog days of summer at this year's Consecon Community Day. This year's celebration features a multitude of events designed to bring families together as well as showcase the Consecon community said Consecon Area Ratepayers Association (CARA) president Bill McMahon. “It's just to get people to come to Consecon. The goal was to celebrate our own community, but it's also about spreading the word that not everything in the county takes place in the

Wellington, Picton, Bloomfield corridor,” McMahon said. He invited residents from across the county, Trenton and Belleville to make the trip and enjoy the festivities. Organized the past few years by CARA along with the Ameliasburgh recreation committee, the event will take place Aug. 4 and will get an early start with a car boot sale at Emm's Restaurant at 8 a.m. The sale will feature sellers from across eastern Ontario and will give residents — along with the several garage sales taking place around the community — an opportunity to look for bargains.

There will be a free hopon, hop-off horse drawn wagon rides around the village and starting at 9 a.m. Consecon Centennial Park will be the kids game zone with an egg race, sack race, three legged race, face painting and tattoos. Additionally, the park will host a “Discovering Consecon” puppet show and, a paper bag puppet making workshop and RJ the Balloon Dude. Consecon Library will be holding a used book sale. The daylong series of events continues with the second annual Consecon Soap Box Derby at 1 p.m. with free registration begin-

ning at noon. The event will start at the top of the Mill Street hill in Consecon and is open to boys and girls ages 5-12. Racers will compete in three age categories — 5-6, 7-9 and 1012 — with competitors making two individual runs down the hill to score their best time with the fastest overall time in each category determining the winner. McMahon said the event was a surprising success last year. “For the first year we had 30 kids which was mindboggling,” he said. “Nick Nowitski and I thought of the idea originally and when it happened we did it by the

seat of our pants and it worked out.” He said he's hoping this year and future years will be even better, although this year he's a little more prepared. “Last year we had about three or four volunteers and it kind of just happened at the moment, but this year I have people willing to get involved,” he said. McMahon said he expects about 75 per cent of last year's participants to return. “We'd like to make it a bigger event year after year,” he said. Helmets and braking mechanisms for cars are mandatory for the event. Free

design plans are available to those wishing to build a car, but kids without cars will still be able to participate using available extra soap box cars. The fun doesn't stop with the end of the race, however. Residents are invited in the evening for a pig roast for adults with hot dogs and hamburgers for kids on the Consecon Legion patio. After dinner there will be a street dance on Mill Street featuring “Whiskey Overdrive.” “Just come out and have a good time,” McMahon said. For soap box car design plans or more information call Bill McMahon at 613394-9914, or bmcmahon@bellnet.ca.

Branch 160 helps fund first phase of Wellington Rotary plan

Legion backs Millennium Trail initiative Staff writer

The Wellington Rotary Club-led initiative that will see a portion of the Millennium Trail covered with a hard surface received an assist from the Wellington branch of the Royal Canadian Legion. Branch 160 presented a cheque for $1,000 to Wellington Rotary Members Friday to help complete the first phase of the seven-kilometre project that looks to transform the roughest portion of the Millennium trail into a smooth, hard packed surface that will be suitable for biking and walking.

path,” Davidson explained. “There is also discussion of creating a two-three foot walking path on the south side of the trail using chipped brush to make a walking path.” The Conley portion of the trail is thought to be in the worst condition and work on this segment will start in August. Overall, the trail corridor is 15 metres in width and 49 kilometres in length with a total land area of 73.5 hectares. The trail system starts in Carrying Place and winds through central Prince Edward County, ending in Picton.

Eventually, it's hoped the portion of the trail that runs from Conley road to Greer road will be flattened and have four inches of limestone screenings placed on it. According to Millennium Trail project chair Barry Davidson, a bulldozer will be used to smoothen out the trail. “We will bring in a bulldozer in to flatten the hump in the middle and then we will put down four inches of limestone screenings and that will make a smooth, flat surface with a slight crown in the middle to allow the rain to run off. This will make an excellent bike

■ Police were searching for thieves who broke into two gas stations on Picton’s Main Street. The thieves stole chocolate bars and cigarettes from W.R Browne Service Station and took at least 10 gallons of gasoline from Pope Bros. across the street. The thieves left behind a towel where they broke the glass at the Browne station and left two jacks and a valve cap leading police to believe they had changed a tire while at the scene. ■ Captain Olaf Palmer, a decorated Military Cross winner succumbed to a heart attack and died in his 42nd year. Officers of the Hastings and Prince Edward Regiment travelled to Picton to ensure their quartermaster had a proper burial at the Glenwood Cemetery. ■ The board of health secured the services of Ontario’s traveling test clinic to offer free testing, including x-rays in Picton.

■ The Canadian Boating Federation announced plans or an international regatta on the Hayward Long Reach. Several Prince Edward Yacht Club members including Doug Thompson, Jim Lovelace, Noel York, Eric Miler, John Sibthorpe, Jack Lyons, Laverne Moore, and Bill Boulter were set to race the best in North America. ■ With an announced quarantine in pigs, the Picton livestock sales barn declared it would suspend business until the quarantine was lifted. The ban was in place to stop hog cholera from spreading in the county. If enough cattle were available for a sale at Garrison’s barn, a separate announcement was to be made. ■ Ronald Conley, 23, of Wellington escaped drastic injury and crawled from the wreckage o his car which rolled several times off Hwy 33 near Waring’s Corners. Conley said he swerved to avoid an oncoming car on a crossroad nearby.

■ Cpl. J.H. Ramsbottom of the OPP announced that upon request of reeve Gordon Norton and council, the police would launch an investigation into the financial affairs of North Marysburgh township. Norton said a problem appeared in the tax arrears section of the budget and indicated the amount being investigated was less than $5,000. ■ The Canada Manpower Office in Picton experienced a 40-per-cent increase in the number of claimants for unemployment insurance over the same time in 1981. Layoffs at Bata, Proctor-Silex, and Lake Ontario cement and a slight decrease in agricultural hirings were cited by branch manager John Cameron as reasons for the upswing in numbers. ■ A new Picton bylaw permitted all stores in town to be open Sundays and holidays throughout the tourist season from Victoria Day to Labour Day. Councillor Andrew Jarvis was the lone dissenting voice voting against the motion.

10 years ago — 2002

■ Quinte Health Care approved of funding changes from the province that would see hospitals receive their base funding allocations prior to the fiscal year rather than three months into it based on a fixed three-year allocation. ■ The County declared the grandstand at the Picton fairgrounds off limits to the public to determine its structural state.

Looking at the human characteristics in birds Is anthropomorphism among birders so wrong? Those who pursue birds scientifically will usually agree that it is. In fact, when I wrote my first book on the Birds of Prince Edward County, in 1969, one Toronto reviewer claimed that the book contained far too many anthropomorphic references to some of the species, making a serious evaluation of the book almost farcical. When the book was revised in 1984, to appease the critics, anthropomorphism was avoided like the plague, and the book got rave reviews from the scientific faction. The casual birder, however, said the book was far too stuffy, and was that really the best I could do. It is widely known that birders are divided into two main groups. There are those who make birding a detailed study in ornithology, and there is certainly nothing wrong in that, for we learn important facts from them about bird behaviour. Then, there are those of us, of course, who prefer to pursue birds casually, enjoy being in their presence, and often note human like characteristics about the birds we see. The bobolinks each spring return to the hay field beside our house on almost the same day each year - May 3. They are essentially birds of open fields, and not something many of us have on our “yard list.” Upon their return each spring to our area, a half dozen or so gather at the tops of the trees along our fenceline, and burst out in a joyful frolic of song, as though to make sure that I am aware of their arrival. Then, as if content that I have seen them, they re-

turn to the field and erupt into a series of rollicking notes, full of kinks and twists that would be impossible to transcribe to musical scale. Shooting up into the air like a skylark, the male paddles along on the tips of its wings, seemingly propelled by the tempo of the song, then drops into the grass while another male takes the cue and repeats the performance. It is a stage show, highlighted by several encores, and would appear to be a dress rehearsal for my benefit alone. Am I being too anthropomorphic? If I am being anthropomorphic, then I am surely not alone. Even those who study birds scientifically are often subject to occasional departures from the ornithological approach. Any instructors who teach bird identification courses will quickly recommend to their students that they put words to a bird song as a means to remember it more easily. They are gimmicks we use to remember bird songs and calls, and are technically

known as mnemonics, while phonetics are actually what the bird is saying. Song sparrows seem to sing, “Maids, maids, maids, put on your tea, kettle, kettle, kettle.” Not only do those words seem to convey what the bird is actually saying, but is an effective way to remember the fast paced tempo of the song. The fast paced dog-like barking of a distant barred owl is easily identified if we remember, “Who cooks for you, who cooks for you all-l-l....” The monotonous telephone-like conversation of the red-eyed vireo can be best described as “Here I am, over here, see me, where are you.” Most of us already know the sweet whistled notes of the white-throated sparrow by “Sweet, Canada, Canada, Canada.” and northern Ontario residents recognize the olivesided flycatcher by its sharp whistled “Quick, three beers!” call. How anthropomorphic ! There are more human like qualities to birds than we think. Like us, birds of different regions even have dialects. In some birds we cannot detect the subtle differences from one region to the next, but electronic analysis of their songs can. Breeding birds have disjunct populations, and generations of these birds return to the same geographic locations each spring to nest. The songs are learned from their fathers and certain geographic qualities are established over time. And like those of us who visit the States and occasionally bring back southern expressions and dialect, and incorporate it into our own speech, some migratory birds have been known to sing in a differ-

ent dialect upon their return from their southern wintering grounds. To put it simply, they are singing in a southern accent. To us, it’s a familiar species singing its same old song, but examine the song electronically, and differences will be noted from the songs normally produced by the local population. Of course, like us who may return from the south with a southern accent, birds, too, upon their return to their Canadian place of birth, will set forth to attract their mates, eventually using the song with which they were taught by their parents. A classic example of anthropomorphism, but something that might have been suspected by amateur birders in years past, has now been supported by the electronic age. So if you want to be anthropomorphic and talk about the four and twenty blackbirds baked in a pie, that’s perfectly okay with me. Remember, it was Henry David Thoreau who said, “I once had a sparrow alight upon my shoulder for a moment, while I was hoeing in a village garden, and I felt that I was more distinguished by that circumstance that I should have been by any epaulet I could have worn.” For more information on today’s topic, please e-mail tsprague@kos.net or phone 613-476-5072.

Athol father, son face multiple charges after altercation with officer A father and son from Athol face a litany of charges after the son refused to stop for police, Prince Edward OPP say. Monday afternoon, an officer noticed the son, 25, speeding down County Rd. 11. He didn’t stop his vehicle, ignoring the officer's lights and sirens. The officer pulled beside the driver and gestured him to pull over, but he continued

driving to his residence. After allegedly ignoring orders to stop, the man walked toward his residence. When the officer attempted to intercept the driver, the driver’s 56-yearold father is reported to have intervened, assaulting the police officer. The men reportedly continued to be aggressive, kicking the officer’s radio out of his hand as he called for po-

lice backup. The men entered the house and refused to comply with orders to exit. Shortly after, backup officers arrived and negotiated their exit. The 25-year-old son faces charges of flight from police, obstructing and resisting police, assaulting police and uttering threats to cause bodily harm.

His father faces charges of obstructing and resisting police, uttering threats to cause death, and assaulting police. The initial officer suffered minor injuries in the incident. The 25-year-old was held for a bail hearing in Belleville yesterday, while his father was released following the charges. -Staff

Greater choice in alcohol retailers could benefit Ontario

YESTERDAY. the Ontario Convenience Stores Association delivered a petition bearing 112,500 signatures to Queen’s Park requesting the province move to a system that allows for alcoholic beverages to be available at a broader range of retail locations. From that standpoint of consumers, it seems like a no-brainer to introduce such legislation as many Ontario residents would acknowledge they’ve seen more affordable prices and more convenient hours in some neighbouring states and provinces where sales of alcohol have been turned over to private companies. Competition has long been one of the best mechanisms of price control available. Some will argue that by controlling the sale of alcohol, the Ontario government has a revenue generator in the LCBO. That may be true, however, it is also responsible for maintaining a distribution system, retail outlets, and a host of staff members that may be more efficiently organized under the auspices of the private sector. Others will say government has an inherent interest in maintaining control over the sale of alcohol to ensure that problems from over indulgence are not as likely to occur, putting strains on law enforcement resources and social programs. Those are good arguments, however, ultimately, the province would have the ability to effectively regulate the pricing and hours any private retailer must follow in order to be licenced to sell in Ontario. Similar systems exist for tobacco products and gaming in this province already. Another argument for the possible privatization of liquor sales in Ontario is that of boosting the ability of producers within this province to make a living and to grow their own businesses. Ask the operators of many of Ontario’s smaller wineries and craft breweries and they will say access to the LCBO’s shelves is an onerous process that could take years before they see enough benefit from sales for it to be economically viable. Beyond that, Ontario law does not allow them to operate retail operations off of their own properties to gain exposure and build broader clientele. Perhaps, through a review of the system that would allow for less stringent regulations on where and who could sell alcohol, many of these companies could have an opportunity to market their product to a wider base at a profit margin they can live with and find new buyers who wouldn’t have to trek across the province or wait for online shipments to enjoy the vintages they could be receiving close to home. Dalton McGuinty has already said that his government is not interested in making a change at this time, but Ontario residents shouldn’t just drop the subject at that. Clearly with the province’s financial position, it wouldn’t hurt Ontario to examine changes in several areas — and it’s a good bet the economics of such a market-friendly change aren’t any worse than those of the province’s beloved energy policy, which it has also clung to far too long.

Author Harris inspires audience, proposes unique fundraiser The audience enjoyed an exceptional presentation and beautiful photomontage at Saturday’s talk by Canada’s leading gardening writer, Marjorie Harris. Over 100 gardening enthusiasts attended the fundraiser for the County of Prince Edward Public Library & Archives at the Regent Theatre. A highlight was how Harris’s combination of wit and knowledge, clearly evident in her writing, translated so seamlessly from page to stage. Opening with a humorous rant on leaf blowers, moving on to what she unabashedly called the “ugly gardens” right in her own neighbourhood – “You see why I have to get out of town to do these talks”, she quipped – and then to breathtakingly gorgeous gardens, Harris inspired, entertained and informed. A question-and-answer session followed and four lucky audience members’ names were then drawn at random to win lunch with the author at the Painted Peppercorn restaurant. One of the winners was Evelyn Sloane, who wrote to the library to express her “sincere thanks for bringing Marjorie Harris to the county.” A longtime fan who reads Harris’s Globe and Mail column religiously, Sloane said, “I was absolutely thrilled to hear her presentation and then wonder of wonders to actually have lunch with her. She is as charming in person as her columns are. This day will surely be one of my most treasured memories.” The collective response from the audience mirrored Sloane’s and translated into a long line of buyers for the author’s latest book Thrifty Gardening. A few in attendance even brought their own copies of past titles to have them autographed. Pleased to share her gardening passion in further fundraising support of the County’s public library, Marjorie Harris has now offered to host a tour of her own gardens at her home in Toronto for five people. Tickets for the draw will be

available at all branches of the library for $20 as of Saturday, July 28. Winners will be drawn on Aug. 31, 2012 at day’s end from all tickets purchased by that day. Contest winners will then meet to agree on a date to meet Marjorie and visit her gardens sometime before September 24th. “It is extremely generous of Marjorie to offer this unique opportunity to the library and equally a unique opportunity for the winners to meet her and see her garden first hand,”.said library CEO Barbara Sweet. “Being a well known and respected gardener and author, with undoubtedly many demands on her time, it is especially appreciated that she should offer to host this tour to help raise funds for the library.“ Personal tours of Marjorie Harris’s gardens are occasionally offered at charity silent auctions starting at $400 dollars and, not surprisingly, they are always purchased. The chance to win a tour by purchasing a $20 ticket makes this unique opportunity yet more exceptional. “And,” adds Sweet, “the County benefits because the funds will help support literacy and learning in our community.” A plant list by Marjorie Harris from her talk last Saturday is available on the library blog, online at the library’s website at w w w . p e c l i b r a r y. o r g Printed copies are also available at all branches of the library.

Aspersion and factual arguments

Under the title of, “Opposition to industrial wind based on factual arguments”, Pamela Stagg claimed that I had “cast aspersions”, an attack on people rather than advancing the argument. My goodness Ms. Stagg, I apologize if I’ve done that! What I had suggested was you had an created an exemplary example of disinformation when you suggested Mike. Platt look into the energy contend of the concrete base of a wind turbine and he might be surprised. The energy content issue had no support-

ive reference facts, no argument and no actual falsehood – a stellar example of misleading information, I had thought – sorry about that! But please let us know just what was your purpose in bring up the issue? Research would show that large wind turbines have an excellent energy return on energy investment – about 20:1 according to professor Charlie Hall’s gathering of research studies.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Friends plan to celebrate Macaulay’s 216th birthday

The Friends of Macaulay Heritage Park invite everyone to put Thursday, Aug. 9 on their calendar. From 1-7 p.m we will be Rediscovering Delhi and celebrating Rev. Wm. Macaulay’s 216th birthday. There will be a corn roast, stories told by Janet Kellough, a treasure hunt, a quill pen writing contest, children’s games and more. We hope that present and former residents of Delhi will drop in to become reacquainted, do a walking tour of the neighbourhood, and maybe even be interviewed for our archives. The volunteers at Macaulay Heritage Park are

a vital resource for the site and have spent extra time, effort and fundraising dollars this season revitalizing the heritage vegetable garden, maintaining the flower beds as they always do, and attending to the overgrowth of vegetation around the property, especially in the graveyard. As well, the organization always has a list of things to do. Working with staff, they set this list, implement and complete projects. Just as one thing is done, a new “to do” comes up. So far this year, with their own funds and the help of a grant from the Parrott Foundation, the Friends put UV protection on the

main gallery and storage room windows at the church/museum, had the old coloured and stained glass windows glazed to protect them from the elements and vandalism, and had the stone stoop at the front of Macaulay House repaired. Volunteers are currently painting the wrought iron around grave plots and preparing a plan to paint other wooden fences around the property. They will be rebuilding the sweep well once the grading is completed in the kitchen yard and trying to keep the carriage circle and Macaulay’s walk to the church clear. And so it goes because the

presentation of the site leaves an impression on visitors and the volunteers care. All of the Museums in Prince Edward County are supported by groups of individuals whose hours of service are seen when there are special events but whose behind-the-scene efforts, while appreciated, are not always calculated as part of the overall resource in the operating of the facility. From research to weeding, there is always something to do and all of the museums could use an extra hand. Nancy Woods Chairperson Friends of Macaulay Heritage Park

Kevlar vests to help wardens with protection, perception

The editorial in the County Weekly News July 19 Vests for Yogis) is very irresponsible and it is obvious that they have not researched the facts at all. Park wardens are peace officers hired by Natural Resources to police the parks and try to make sure that campers and park users have an enjoyable experience. Campers come in all types and sizes and just like in a small city, they have and create many problems that need to be dealt with. Perception has always been a problem in the enforcement programs in parks and the issuing of Kevlar

helps to convey to the public that these wardens are serious and have the authority to enforce the laws. Referring to them as Yogis is demeaning and indicates that the author (unknown) of this editorial has never taken the time to walk in their shoes. As a former conservation officer, park warden and park superintendent, I have been assaulted, had beer bottles thrown at me and have even had my family threatened when dealing with drunken vacationers and criminals. I have been grazed by a speeding car and helped in

the takedown of a child molester and have been involved in drug seizures and accident investigations as well as countless violations of the Liquor Control Act. Our park wardens deserve respect if they are to do their job. The job they do is just as dangerous as any police officer and their presence allows the OPP to carry out their enforcement outside the park, more effectively. Unfortunately because of editorials such as this, park users do not feel that they have to respect the enforcement of the Parks Act, the Highway Traffic Act, the liquor laws and the Criminal

Code when they are on vacation. Editors and writers should be supporting the programs that help make parks an enjoyable experience not making fun of the enforcement effort. The issuing of Kevlar vests will not only help protect these officers but will help improve the perception to the public that these men and women are there to enforce the law. Perhaps this editor should research this subject more thoroughly. Jim Ives Picton

Turbine issue in South Marysburgh doesn’t deal in absolutes

In South Marysburgh, only about half the citizens objected to wind turbines. There were about 1,000 eligible voters. Voter turnout was about 60 per cent. About nine per cent voted for turbines. The rest (about half the citizens of South Marysburgh) voted against turbines. A whopping 40 per

cent (400-plus citizens) did not oppose turbines enough to vote. On the ballot were only two options “for,” or “against.” Turbines have advantages as well as disadvantages. We are neither “for,” nor “against” turbines — neutral was not an option. So, we were automatically dis-

qualified, and so was anyone with an open mind. With 40 per cent not voting, or like us, disqualified, no one should claim that South Marysburgh residents were 90 per cent against turbines. We own 380 acres in South Marysburgh. We did not allow turbines on our

property, yet we do not object if our neighbours want them. They may need the income. Farming is risky. Right now, farmers’ wells go dry and many crops are withering in the fields. Fred Hassenbach Heidi Hassenbach South Marysburgh

Exchange student bids au revoir to club Taverniere tells Rotarians year in Picton was best of her life

Staff writer

Later this week, Helene Taverniere will board a plane and return to Villefranche, France a changed young woman. Tuesday, the 17 year old had the opportunity to say her good-byes to Picton Rotarians and thank them for showing her what she called“ the best year of my life” in the county. Taverniere admitted feeling a bit of anxiety after she received an e-mail from Rotary past-president Robert Quaiff asking her what colour she’d like her new bedroom painted. “You get really excited then get terrified, then excited again,” she said, adding she didn’t know anything about the new life awaiting her here. It didn’t take long for Taverniere to find out that everything would be alright as Quaiff and Rotary exchange director Frank Wright met her at the airport. “My first impression was that Canadians were so welcoming and warm,” she said. Taverniere described the year as one of lessons and highlights. Among the things she learned was to not judge things without trying them, that people aren’t very different despite language barriers,

to make the best of each situation, and to realize how fortunate most Canadian and French people are. There were many highlights beyond the day-to-day excitement of attending PECI. Taverniere visited Niagara Falls, she attended Blue Jays, Maple Leafs and Dukes games — discovering that she became a hockey fan — walked on the platform at the CN Tower, skated on the Rideau Canal, and participated in her first Thanksgiving, Christmas parade, and surprise birthday party. “My year was exciting, happy, scary, surprising, amazing, unbelievable and really special... just the thought of leaving makes me sad,” she said.

Given the global scale on which his organization works, Rotary International president Sakuji Tanakaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s theme for this year might seem a bit weighty. The Japanese man called for Rotarians to strive for â&#x20AC;&#x153;Peace through serviceâ&#x20AC;? this year. Local Rotarians shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fret about ending war or moving beyond their efforts to eradicate polio, said District 7070 governor Ted Koziel in Picton Tuesday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He wants us to look at the idea of peace in the village,â&#x20AC;? said Koziel. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Places where children stop dying... or maybe you send hockey equipment or books up north to a native village, that could be peace through service. In all our actions, we can attach a peace segment to it,â&#x20AC;? he said. Koziel said the hope is that across the world, Rotarians build stronger clubs,

increase their humanitarian efforts, and find ways to enhance their public image to help do more good locally and overseas. The son of a coal miner from Glace Bay, Nova Scotia, Koziel told Rotarians being involved with the organization has meant much to him over the years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rotary has changed my life, maybe it has changed your life as well. Rotary has given me friends I will have the rest of my life, they live by 4-way test and do things I like to do,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153; It has taught me compassion for other people... it has given me direction.â&#x20AC;? Koziel described the great feeling heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s received knowing that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s helped improve lives and save lives and told Picton Rotarians they should take some time to share the benefits theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve received from Rotary with friends and acquaintances in their own lives.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We should bring our friends into Rotary to allow them to enjoy the things we have enjoyed â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the feelings, the relationships.â&#x20AC;? Inevitably, he said, while some Rotarians have taken steps to recruit, those friends have often come up with reasons not to help. Maybe it was income tax time, or children involved in hockey, or perhaps life was just too busy. Koziel came up with a bit of motivation for them to try to push a little further. He showed a slide of a young woman and her mother, likely from a thirdworld country. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This little girl, she canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go to school because she is a little girl. She comes from a society where they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe she should be allowed to go to school,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to empower women. We need them educated, we need them to change things.â&#x20AC;? Then, he showed a photo of a young woman from India with polio, destined to be a burden to her family for the entirety of her shortened life. With billions of people in India, he said sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d never make it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait for hockey season to be over, she doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even know what hockey is,â&#x20AC;? he said.

Then Koziel rattled off a statistic that every 1.5 seconds a child dies needlessly because there isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fresh water or any water available for drinking. He said Rotarians could go into the villages and teach people to harvest water or jump start their economy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We as Rotarians can do that,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you became a Rotarian, you selected service above self. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s our motto and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just words.â&#x20AC;? The district governor asked Rotarians to take some time over the next year to ponder some simple questions to see if their membership has been fruitful over the course of the 12 months. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Did I help my club achieve its goals? Did I bring in a new member? Did I help a mother smile at her child or did I help a dad maintain the basics of life for his family? If you said yes to any of those, you probably helped achieve peace through service.â&#x20AC;? During his address Koziel also challenged club members to try new things and to remember to keep the fun in Rotary. He said he was impressed with the fellowship and relationships Picton Rotarians showed.

ily, he planted his on a strand of ancient mineral-rich beach soil. Vida, really a psychotherapist, watched the vines grow, then began winemaking training in earnest. Committed to authentic 100per-cent- county wine, they grow classic whites that range from crisp Chenin to aromatic Gewúrztraminer, and reds that go from lighthearted Gamay to serious Pinot. The three vineyards of By Chadsey’s Cairns stretch across their property along Lake Ontario, each one based in limestone soil. However, it’s the extra push of warmth from the lake that allows this parcel of land to transcend the region’s marginal grape growing status and take advantage of the unique soils. The original Applehouse and Wellington Bay Vineyards, about 12 acres, share a deep sandy loam known as Brighton Gravel. The remains of an ancient beach, it is relatively rare and has produced a complex minerality and clean finish in their first whites, making a bracing traditional Mosel-styled Riesling and a silky Gewürztraminer. Their King Eddie Vineyard contains three soil types: Brighton Gravel at the north end of the eight-acre field, Ameliasburgh clay with its fieldstone litter on a south slope, and the heavier Hillier clay peppered with crushed limestone fragments at the southern foot. The Hillier clay releases its moisture with measured consistency to the Chardonany and Pinot noir vines, while its limestone maximizes crucial heat units. Much can be said about lake effect, particularly in the

county with its numerous inlets and bays. Because Chadsey's vineyards are within a few hundred metres of a large ocean-like view of Lake Ontario, they stay frost-free a little longer than inland vineyards, but are slower to heat up in the spring. As with all farming, each variable has advantages and disadvantages. A sudden cold snap in the spring of 2001 caused bud damage in Niagara, but spared their late budding vines. On the other hand, the warmer temperatures that hover above our deep lake water at the south end of their property cannot mitigate winter winds that usually blow from the north.

At By Chadsey’s Cairns, the fall harvest is a collaborative experience as friends and family volunteer to bring in the harvest. They have recently extended the harvest invitation to their customers. Some want to commune with nature, bring back childhood memories, or simply live the dream of owning a vineyard. This past harvest Delores really enjoyed a day of picking grapes at a local vineyard.

By Chadsey’s Cairns Winery and Vineyards. That certainly is one of the most unique names for a winery and that's where we're going this week! By Chadsey's Cairns is named after Ira Chadsey (1828-1905), who was the rather eccentric owner of the 215- acre farm. He was said to have believed that he would be reincarnated as a white horse. As a result, he built cairns or stone monuments around the horse field behind the original home on the property marking it clearly enough that he would know he was home when he was transformed. Fourteen of the cairns still exist today. Local legend has it that seven years after his wife Roxey’s death, at the age of 77, Ira built a large bonfire in his maple syrup shack, located down the laneway by the cairns, and shot himself so that his body would be flung into the flames. The fire is said to have been so intense that nothing was found but the metal barrel of his gun. When it came time to name their new vineyard, owners Richard and Vida decided that Ira’s rich and moving story deserved a firmer hold in time. The winery is located five kilometres west of the village of Wellington on the Loyalist Parkway and has a wonderful collection of old barns that form a new world “Clos” that transports visitors back to an earlier time. In fact, the parking lot is adjacent to the pioneer cemetery where James Chadsey, Ira's grandfather was interred in 1809. The winery itself is established inside the stables that accommodated six teams of draft horses. Richard Johnston and his wife Vida Zalnieriunas began planting vines with friends and family in 1999 with 3,000 Riesling vines on what turned out to be the coldest and wettest day that spring. They were planted in the field next to the Applehouse that Ira built in about 1850, which now houses their tasting room and store. This is a charming one-room building with mysterious origins, an 1840s architectural jewel hidden from roadside view behind weather-greyed barns. Theirs is a typical wine story. It began with seduction. Richard, a former MPP – but not a farmer – had always loved vineyards. Luck-

Lodge member says declining enrollment trend may impact work in community

The Picton Lodge itself began writing its own history 62 years ago. On Nov. 25 1949 Picton No. 326 was instituted with 67 members with the first meeting taking place at Odd Fellows Hall and subsequent meetings at St. Gregory's Hall. In 1953 a former church hall was purchased and became the Picton lodge — the same lodge that stands today. Renovations and an addition to the building to add a kitchen and bar were completed by 1957. Four years later the membership had increased to 115 with large New Year's dances

held at the local armory, raffles and local baseball and hockey teams drawing the increased membership. Don Armstrong has been an Elks member for 50 years. He said it was those dances that initially peaked his interest in joining the lodge. “It was a charitable organization and everything stayed here in the county and also for the dances and things it was the best place to go in the county,” Armstrong said. “It still is,” piped up 33year Elks member Ron Binch. “It's the best dance floor in the county.” Both men agreed that one of the best parts of being an Elk, aside from giving back to the community, is the ca-

a major expansion was undertaken to accommodate the additional members. This renovation doubled the size of the original hall. The Lodge hosted its first provincial conference in 1970. Floyd Snider, a 46-year Elks member, joined the lodge because of the organization's efforts to help children. “They've helped a lot of children in the years that I've belonged here,” he said. The Elks regularly contribute to charitable programs addressing the needs of children with hearing and speech disorders. Snider said detecting hearing loss early in children is one of the organization's main objectives.

maraderie that comes along with being a member. “After I've been retired it's a good place to come in the afternoon and have a beer, play cards, shuffleboard,” said Armstrong. Binch remembered a 1991 fire that required extensive renovation and a lot of work from members. “After about three hours we had the bar open so there was no problem getting help,” he laughed. “We had to take up a lot of rock by hand to put on the conveyor because we didn't have a hole big enough to get anything in here.” In 1964 there were 144 members and by 1968 the basement was excavated and

lows them to contribute about $20,000 annually to the community. However, the aging building requires a lot of upkeep. A small portion of funds raised regularly goes to restorations to the building. Renovations on the entrance to the building and to improve washrooms, lighting, and insulation recently cost $50,000 with a lot of work being done by members. Currently members are working to upgrade the ceiling and floor of the kitchen area and are setting their future sights on upgrading the ceiling of the hall. Their membership is down to about 115 — about 25 of which the lodge counts on to be active — after being upward of 300 in 1991. The lodge has initiated up to 12 new members at one time but, with an aging membership, seem to lose more than they gain. Binch said the Elks are continuously looking for new male and female members to invigorate the lodge and bring new ideas. Binch said if clubs like the Elks don't continue for another 100 years and onward, it could put financial strain on other areas. “If we can encourage young people to join and help their community any lodge or Rotary or whatever will continue. If the people are showing disinterest, it will be up to the community or the government to look after us more so than in the past,” he said. Binch thanked all the community members who continually come out to support the Elks initiatives including the charity golf tournament where $6,200 was raised and the charity baseball tournament where they raised about $1,500. “In light of a lot of organizations that don't make the first five years, we've done well at 100,” said Binch.

Shortt sees heat wave as health issue

TRANSFER, from page 1

Gale said opening a site during the week is important for businesses as well. For councillor Terry Shortt, who also supported the motion, it was more of a health issue. He said when council first voted to have the sites open one day it was still cool and tourist season had yet to begin. “When we first voted on this we weren't in a heat wave,” he said. “Now we're dealing with a health issue because now we've got garbage sitting out in unusually hot temperatures.” However, councillor Jamie Forrester was one of many who remained adamant about opening the sites just once per week. He said making it more difficult to get rid of garbage is the first step toward curbing habits and effectively reducing the overall amount of garbage going to landfills. “Everybody in Prince Edward County gets curbside pickup,” he said. “I understand it's an inconvenience (but) I want it to be an inconvenience, that's the only way we're going to start changing people's attitudes that it's not alright to throw out three, four, five bags of garbage.”

PECSA honours Parks, Wentworth for efforts

Both squads represent Wellington well in front of pro and college scouts JASon PARkS

Staff writer

MARTY ABRAMS

“He was outstanding the whole tournament,” Abrams said. In the last two games for the red side, Jake Marchment got on a hot streak and lit the lamp three times while Campbell (two), Wood, Mitchell Smith and Luc Brown also scored. Meanwhile, over the span of three games, the white squad got four goals from Minnesota-native Evan Erickson, a pair from Josh Gervais and singles from Erick Delaurentis, Abbott Girduckis, Wyatt Cota and Geoff Cleminson. Abrams also highlighted the work of a pair of Empire Junior C grads in Joe McKewon and Nolan Powers. “McKewon (Cambellford) and Powers (Napanee) had great tournaments, both were outstanding,” Abrams said. “We are really happy with the young players we've committed to, there were some great signs this weekend. Every single player that put on that put on that uniform played hard and the work ethic was unbelievable.” That includes the veterans that attended as Delaurentis, Gervais and Campbell all factored in on the scoring. “Erick played very well, Josh knows he's going to have to step it up as is Craig,” Abrams said. “I think Campbell was one of the best players in the tournament and he knows, as a 20 year old he's going to have to be one of the best players on the team.” Round the 'Roc: The Wellington white entry augmented its back end with veteran Picton Pirates defencemen Brandon Peever, who, from all accounts, performed well and drew interest from a handful of NCAA Division III clubs...Michigan natives Parker Wood (Little Caesars) and Zach Bishop (Victory Honda/Plymouth AAA) could both make the Dukes lineup this season.

Award, tournament named for builders

Dukes boss impressed with hopefuls’ efforts in Boston tournament The chowder, whether it be red or white, is good in Boston. For the Wellington Dukes, they themselves are good in Beantown, whether they be red or white. The local Junior A hockey organization made fine examples of themselves this past weekend at the John Cuniff Memorial Chowder Cup in Boston, compiling a combined 3-1-2 record Wellington Dukes coach and general manager Marty Abrams said he was pleased with the operation of the showcase event that draws entries from all over eastern North America as well as the western United States. “Our first impression was that it was well run, there was lots of scouts and it was a great opportunity for players to be put on display and show their talents,” Abrams said. NHL scouts representing Boston, Toronto, Carolina and Florida were in attendance as were several bird dogs representing NCAA Division I and III hockey programs. Both teams represented Wellington well with the red squad going 1-0-2 and the white club compiling a 2-1-0 record. Unfortunately, due to a complex tie breaking method, neither club advanced to the final rounds, however, the event was more about individual play as opposed to winning a meaningless title. Likely the highlight of the event for Wellington came on the first day as the red club tangled with an entry called the East Coast Militia. How fitting on the centennial anniversary of the War of 1812, a group of upstart Canadians toppled an American-based club with five NHL draft picks including Brian Hart and Matt Beattie 5-3. Craig Campbell, Parker Wood, Jacob Hetherington, Adam Moodie and Brad Jacklin all lit the lamp for Wellington while super 16year-old stopper Haydon Lavigne was solid in the Dukes cage in their Thursday opener. In fact, Lavinge had a very solid tournament and further cemented his case to be one of the Dukes two goalies when the club breaks training camp in mid-September.

BRinging heAT Terra Vista Rockies Pitcher Dale Dowdell delivers a pitch during his club’s 3-0 win over the Roblin Family Plumbing Copperheads in Picton on Tuesday evening. (Jason Parks/Gazette staff)

Rockies sailing with three consecutive shutouts JASon PARkS

Staff writer

The Terra Vista Rockies showed Tuesday night why its a good idea to save your best for last. The Rockies (6-5-1, 14 points), taking on the dark horse bid to win the Prince Edward County Men's Fastball League regular season title in the Roblin's Family Plumbing Copperheads (9-4-1, 19 points), put together their third consecutive shutout to down the Snakes 3-0. Rox fireballer Dale Dowdell went the distance (and added a double and a run scored in the late innings for good measure), blanking the Snakes and essentially putting Roblin's championship bid on life support. Roblin's had entered the game just a point behind league leading Whitepine Watershed (10-4-0, 20 points) and were looking to leap frog the Deseronto-based club for first, however, those hopes have virtually vanished. In order to claim first, Roblin's would have to win

tonight when they hook up with the Rockies again in Picton at 7 p.m. And hope for a Whitepine loss next Tuesday when that club plays Ameliasburgh in the league's final night of regular season play. In the late game Tuesday, the Warren's Excavating Ameliasburgh A's (5-7-2, 12 points) got past the pesky Beatty Seeds Huskers (3-10-1, seven points) 5-3. Fresh off the injury list, Ian Wallwork picked up the win and hit a three-run homer in the first inning. Husker catcher Chad Camp responded with a moon shoot of his own in the loss. Last Thursday, the Huskers traveled to Frankford and upended Danford Contracting (5-8-0, 10 points) 7-4. Camp plated three in the win. In Tyendinaga, Nick Brooks of Whitepine Watershed jacked a walk off home run in the bottom of the seventh inning to beat Ameliasburgh 3-2.

Into its 15th season, the Prince Edward County Soccer Association has found it fitting to recognize two of its longtime members. PECSA President Pam McRae announced earlier this month that Gary Parks and Scott Wentworth's efforts in the development and operation of PECSA would be remembered by the creation of the Scott Wentworth Excellence in Coaching award and that Parks' name would be attached to the annual Tournament weekend, now known as the PECSA Annual Gary Parks Soccer Tournament. Both Parks and Wentworth stepped back from PECSA in 2012 after putting forth thousands of hours for the benefit of the organization and while many people have donated their time for the cause of youth soccer in the community, McRae said its the quiet and unheralded efforts of these two county residents to really make PECSA what it has become. “Gary is a founding member and was instrumental in the club getting off the ground. From the beginning, his smiling face could be seen pacing around the pitches. He was always on the alert for people that needed help and encouragement or for work that needed completing. He did every job possible

from cutting the pitch to lining the fields to ordering jerseys and was responsible each year for scheduling all the games,” McRae said, adding that Parks also spent several arduous hours each spring developing the PECSA schedule. Coaching and field development were what defined the efforts put forth by Wentworth. “Many soccer players in the county have Scott to thank when it comes to their excelling at the sport. We’ve had numerous young people go on to collegiate level soccer, and most of them would say Scott was the reason. And all county residents should be proud of the pitches at the Johnson Street fields. Coaches and players from teams throughout eastern Ontario have repeatedly made remarks about the high quality of the fields,” said McRae. McRae said she hoped parents and players participating in the August 11th and 12th finale will take time to remember the efforts of Parks and Wentworth. To nominate a coach for the Wentworth award, parents are asked to visit the PECSA web site at www.pecsa.ca

Back for its 14th year, the Garry Lavender Memorial Golf Tournament featured a new record setting round this past weekend at the Picton Golf & Country Club. The tournament, which raises funds for the Wellington Dukes and has generated in excess of $100,000 over the past 10 years, was won by the foursome of Glenn McQuaid, Ron Maracle, Scott Holding and Gavin Vader with a sublime round of minus-18. “We've had a couple of rounds of minus-17 but that's the first time anyone's carded a -18, so that's a very special score and a great round of golf by those four players,” tournament organizer Tod Lavender said. As usual, a number of alumni were on hand to celebrate the Dukes organization and the memory of the club's late builder. Longtime fan favourite and former captain Peter Magagna took part as did standouts Glenn Bellmore,

Tyler Rivers, Brandon Harker, Tony Rizzi, Curtis Leonard and Mike Mckeown. “Once again, it was a great mix of players that played for my dad, players that I played with and players that I coached,” Lavender said. “It's a very special day for the Lavender family and the event went great this year.” While the hockey club benefitted from the event, longtime scout Don Cotton was a big winner, taking home the closest to the pin competition and also winning a 50/50 draw. “Not too many people work harder then (Cotton),” Lavender said. “It was really nice to see him have a great day out there and take home some nice prizes.” Lavender wished to thank all the tournament sponsors and prize donors.

Community development commissioners appointed Structure to be in place in 2012 Three residents to join council, business reps Chad Ibbotson

Staff writer

Council has appointed several citizen and stakeholder members to the municipality's newly created community development commission. Residents Blake Vader, Tim Ward and John Giraudy will be added to the commission. Council debated the appointments in a long closed session discussion before approving the three applicants shortly after 12 a.m. Wednesday morning. The selection comes after the municipality advertised for three members of the public with knowledge and experience in several different areas including arts and culture, heritage, industry and agriculture. The new additions will

join appointed council representatives Barbara Proctor and Terry Shortt. Prince Edward County Chamber of Tourism and Commerce general manager Michael McLeod and Taste the County chief executive officer Jeremiah MacKenzie will also sit on the commission. The mayor will sit as an ex-officio member with voting privileges only in absence of a councillor appointee. All appointments to the commission are for the term of council or until replaced. A report presented at council says the community development commission “will develop and implement strategies, policies and programs to contribute to coun-

cil's goals of community development and economic sustainability in Prince Edward County.” The report says advertisements for citizen representatives were place in local papers with a closing date of June 27, but with only a small number of applicants and the two stakeholder representative not submitted, the deadline was extended to allow for a varied candidate list. “The clerk’s department received 13 applications for citizen representatives,” the report says. A per the its terms of reference the commission will consist of an odd number of appointees with a minimum of five and maximum of

seven voting members. The commission members will serve without remuneration and “shall not directly or indirectly receive any profit from his/her position.” The commission will look to create collaborative partnerships in a leadership role and, with other local service providers will explore: The partners' mandates, roles and service delivery to interpret duplication, redundancy and gaps in local service support and delivery; create a strategic plan; decide on objectives and division of responsibilities and allocation of funding to eliminate duplication and gaps in community services and program delivery; and be the real estate arm of the municipality.

CHANGES, from page 1

It had previously been stated that there would be an opportunity for the two outgoing commissioners to integrate into the new system in different roles, but after Tuesday's meeting it appears that won't happen. A report from the CAO presented at council said the corporate realignment process is expected to be fully implemented by the end of the year. So far it has been determined that: The four commission structure will be integrated into two; the human resources department will report directly to

the CAO; the community development department will report directly to the CAO with Murphy as director until the end of the year; the road patrolman position has been eliminated; and the water and wastewater department has been restructured to become two separate divisions. “Additional changes to the organizational structure will be occurring over the coming months and will be announced in due course,” the report says. The report says the financial implications of the realignment will be reported separately when the process is complete.

Preventing the invasive leek moth from laying eggs on the outside of plant leaves

We recently had a question from a gardener in Kingston regarding the leek moth. Acrolepiopsis assectella, is an invasive alien species from Europe which has become established in eastern Ontario and parts of Quebec and is continuing to expand its range. This moth is small, reddish-brown and has a white triangular mark on the middle of the folded wings. It has a 12-15 mm wingspan and is 5-7 mm long when its wings are folded at rest. The hindwings of the moth are heavily fringed and are pale gray to light black. This moth resembles the carrion-flower moth which is a harmless native species. Presently, and fortunately, the ranges of these two moths do not overlap. The leek moth damages and can even destroy allium crops including onion, garlic, chives, green onion, shallot, elephant garlic, wild garlic, and leeks There are three flight periods of the adult moth per season in Ontario. Adults become active and emerge in the spring when temperatures reach 9.5 degrees Celsius and mate shortly thereafter. Eggs are laid on lower leaf surfaces when night temperatures exceed 10 degrees Celsius. Females lay up to 100 eggs over a three-to-four week period. When the eggs hatch they mine into leaf tissues. After several days,

the larvae move into the centre of the plant where young leaves are formed. After several weeks of feeding, the larvae move out into the foliage and spin cocoons. Leek moth damage increases as the season progresses. There are three flight periods with the first beginning in late April and ending in mid-May. The second period begins in mid to late June and lasts until mid-July. The last flight period is generally mid-August and ends in late August. Because this moth is a serious commercial threat, the Government of Ontario is carefully studying the development of this moth and testing potential controls including biological controls

which are looking promising. In the meantime, the recommendations for control of this pest for home gardeners is to use floating row covers to prevent the female moth from laying her eggs on the outside of plant leaves. Right now, the third flight period is coming up sometime in mid-August and ending in late August so it would be important to install floating row covers prior to mid-August. These covers can be removed in the daylight and as long as they are put back on prior to dusk there is little risk of leek moth entering the covers. The eggs are very tiny and difficult for the human eye to see, however, if a gardener should see leaf dam-

Athol recreation to celebrate Holstein club Cherry Valleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bicentennial fun night in West Lake Plenty of events for all ages planned Wednesday for this Saturday afternoon Janet Davies

For The GazeTTe

History is not just the big stuff. It's everyday life and community stories that grow more fascinating as years go by until 20, 50, 100 years later they become History with a capital H. People in the County celebrate their history, and on July 28, the Athol recreation committee is throwing a 200th birthday party for Athol township and Cherry Valley. They're calling it a Cherry Jubilee. Kato Wake, chair of the committee says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Although history books donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t all agree on exactly how old Athol and Cherry Valley are, we know Colonel Henry Young arrived in 1781, and dozens of families were settled by 1800, so we figure we're on safe ground celebrating at least 200 years. Cherry Valley United Church is definitely 150 years old this year." As well as reading history books, Athol rec members discovered a wealth of local history in the big old scrapbook kept by Cherry Valley Women's Institute. Susan and Glen Wallis learned that Alva Stephens, the man who named Cherry Valley, once lived in their house on County Rd. 18. Wake discovered her garage used to be the Cherry Valley bank, and her partner, wine writer Billy Munnelly, was aghast to learn that Athol township had voted to be alcohol-free and was officially â&#x20AC;&#x153;dryâ&#x20AC;? until 1976. The Cherry Jubilee has a strong historical theme and costumed characters will stroll the village greeting guests. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rumoured that Alva Stephens himself will make an appearance. The Jubilee will be a family affair from noon to 4 pm with activities, music and refreshments centered in â&#x20AC;&#x153;downtownâ&#x20AC;? Cherry Valley. There will be old-fashioned childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s games and a big scavenger hunt that highlights historical sites in the village, including the grave of Colonel Young, one of the very first settlers in Prince Edward County. Wallis says â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got scavenger hunt prizes like passes to the Mustang DriveIn and the Regent and certificates for Williams Family Diner." In the forecourt of the old Texaco station, a valley landmark owned by Donna and Derek Kaye, local band E.Z. Country South will be playing with Lorraine Sine and Jon Milford. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have an outdoor pizza oven and the 4-H milkshake truck,â&#x20AC;? Wake says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s free birthday cake for everyone." Athol Rec committee member Annette Brummell says Cherry Valley Lions Club decided to change the date of its annual Fun Day and Classic Car Show in the Park to be part of the Jubilee. Those activities happen in Cherry Valley Lions Club Park on East Lake at the junction of County Rds 10 and 18. The Cherry Jubilee also celebrates the naming of Cherry Valley. Some say Alva Stephens named it after Cherry Valley, New York. Others say there used to be hundreds of cherry trees here. The Athol recreation committee is going with the latter theory and the idea of â&#x20AC;&#x153;putting the cherries back into Cherry Valley." Thanks to Cherryvale Organic Farm theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re offering

hardy Crimson passion cherry trees for sale on the day at a discount price of $25 for Athol residents, or $30 to everyone else. "It's first come first served," says Wake, "and we can offer help with planting the trees for seniors. You just have to ask." The Cherry Jubilee finishes with an evening dance (for 19 years and over) at the air-conditioned Athol Town Hall, featuring local band Little Bluff from 8:00 to midnight. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good year for jubilees. And for Athol township whose history includes legends of buried Spanish gold, the famous Avril Arrow, the formidable LetitiaYoumans and her Temperance Movement and so much more, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time for a birthday party. Everyone is welcome at the Cherry Jubilee, and you can read more at www.atholreccentre.com.

They will be having fun down on the Farm Wednesday, Aug. 1 as the Prince Edward Holstein Club presents its annual Family Farm Fun Night at the home of Derk Prinzen and family at 1961 County Road 12 in West Lake. Formerly known as the twilight meeting, the event kicks off with a barbecue beef and pork meal catered by Taylor Meats of Roseneath with food service from 6:30 p.m. To 8 p.m. Highlights include the 4-H dairy calf show and the highly popular loonies raffle. This year's event is being sponsored by Deerhaven Farm & Garden in honour of John Deere's 175th anniversary. To reserve advance tickets, contact Gerald Nyman (613393-2359), Bruce Walt (613-3923164) or Cameron Graham (613-393-2503) or tickets can be reserved at Picton Farm Supply or the County Farm Centre. -Jason Parks, Staff

Donations sought for family in wake of Scheldt Court fire Karen Sporring is hopeful her community will rally for one of her daughterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good friends. Last Wednesday, Michelle Bond and her children Kristen, 12, Elijah, 10, and Ethan lost their home and most of their possessions when their Scheldt Court townhouse caught fire. Damage to their unit was estimated at $100,000 and luckily Prince Edward County firefighters

managed to contain the blaze. The contents were not insured. Sporring said she has set up a bank account through Scotiabank to try to help the family get back on their feet before fall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bad. We want to help get some things in place for the kids before school starts and it would be nice to help them have first and last monthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rent on a new

house,â&#x20AC;? she said. The Salvation Army and Ontario Works helped the family with immediate needs following the fire. A mattress company has also come forward to donate new beds. Those interested in helping can call Sporring at 613476-9648 or donate at Town & Country Video or the Picton Clinic. -Staff

What senior citizens have to say about Community Care’s range of services

We have a complaints and kudos file in the Community Care office. We receive, record and address the occasional complaint. More often, we have seniors and their caregivers tell us how much our services meant to them. Here’s a few comments. “I appreciate the Meals on Wheels so much. Each meal is very good. It is wonderful how they can appeal to so many people. Each meal is thoughtfully prepared and presented.” From an 80-year-old client... We received a call from a man who said that his wife was so pleased with

the foot care service that she received from Community Care that she told him he needed to contact us and make arrangements for his own foot care. He called and became a foot care client, too. A 93-year-old man told our staff “I appreciate everything that everyone does--the frozen meals are wonderful.” “I appreciate having the meals delivered right to the door and the friendly courteous service from the staff and volunteers. It helps me to be more independent, which makes less worry for my family, who do not live close by but visit often. I

thank you all very much.” “Please pass on that Meals on Wheels does a wonderful thing for seniors!” Community Care has caring volunteers who provide escorted transportation to take seniors to medical and other appointments and shopping. These are some of the comments about the volunteer driving service: “With 66 years driving experience, I could not ask for anything better.” “I think you do a wonderful job! And your staff is so friendly and helpful. You provide a much needed service and I’m sure your

other clients appreciate it as much as I do.” “Each of the three drivers we have used were outstanding.” “Thank you for all the assistance Community Care has provided for us. The staff and the volunteers have been so helpful.” “This is one of the best things that have happened recently, in Prince Edward County.” “I am most grateful for the services Community Care gives.” The Prince Edward County Community Care for Seniors Association exists to help seniors live at home. If you need some

practical help to make it possible for you to continue to live with comfort and independence in your own home, call today and speak to one of our staff. The number is 613-476-7493 and our office is located in The Armoury, 206 Main Street in Picton.

RURAL ROUTE REASSURANCE PROGRAM

In partnership with Canada Post and the Canadian Union of Postal Workers, Prince Edward Community Care can arrange for your mail courier en route to keep a watchful eye on your home to help keep you safe. This service is free, offering added safety and security to those living in the country. To participate in this service, call Prince Edward Community Care at 613-476-7493.
