Following a meeting to gather public input on the municipality's age-inplace master plan last week there were feelings of optimism, but with a degree of caution. Representatives of urban planning firm The Planning Partnership spoke to a group of approximately 25 members of the public at H.J. McFarland home. Many of those in attendance were residents of the home or family members of residents. Those in attendance were given three sample layouts for the approximately 25-acre piece of property and asked to submit their comments and ideas on handouts. The Planning Partnership is expected back near the end of this month with a new design for the master plan which incorporates those comments. McFarland Home family council chair Jan Welbanks said she is excited for the next meeting. She said many residents she spoke with, while feeling positive about last week's meeting, are still taking a cautious approach to the project. She said there were a few things she didn't like with the sample layouts, but she believes input given last week will make for a better presentation at the next meeting. “I'm really looking forward to that. I'm now on a positive swing here with this property,” Welbanks said. “With the Age in Place concept, with the way things were handled before we did have some skepticism and suspicions and things because we thought it wasn't being done properly. But now this company has been hired by the County, they want our input and it's going to be used and that's a positive.”

PECI sends its 2013 graduates on to the next steps in their journeys Principal says in grads’ absence, school will be changed JASON PARKS

Staff writer

Joy and elation, trials and tribulations. PECI had all of these in the 2012-2013. The local secondary school celebrated the culmination of the educational year with its annual graduation ceremony last week and the occasion was marked as a remembrance of times shared with a harkening of good times and experenices yet to come. Principal Darren McFarlane told the class of 2013 the current stage of their journey has ended with the next course in their lives is set to begin. “Tonight, you leave the

halls of PECI where you have learned, developed and become the outstanding young ladies and gentlemen you sit before us as tonight — you are about to enter a world that is much different than it was when your parents or teachers left high school — a world that is now changing by the second,” he said. The world of technology has steadily evolved over the past few decades and the landscape of learning has changed significantly. McFarlane said graduates were leaving PECI well versed in the use of modern tools and technologies and were prepared to tackle any challenges

thrown their way. “So what is next ? That is for the emerging minds in this room to decide, however, we know that it will be exciting and full of potential because it will be from you- our graduating Panthers,” the principal noted. McFarlane also told graduates not to become too enamoured with precieived destinations. “I recently heard a speaker highlighting his thoughts on what is known as a new epidemic called the "destination disease" the notion that people stop learning and growing when they reach what they believe to be 'the destination' He went on to discuss what he deemed as 'possibility thinking' and he stressed that we should never settle on where we are - we need to get better at whatever it is that we are doing in order to fulfill our destiny and maximize all the potential that is within

that is our sincere hope for you. He added that in today's ever evolving and competitive society, if you're not improving, you are falling behind. “Graduates, tonight is not the destination- instead, you have only just begun and if you apply all the potential that is within you, you will go places in life that you never dreamed

possible no one knows the path that life holds in store for us — jobs, relationships, et cetera... regardless of where the journey extends from PECI, the skills that you have acquired here at PECI will help guide you and you will be successful in all that you put your mind to.

Valedictorian Goddard shares message about how close class became us and help showcase all of the great things that we do,� He added. A recent car accident brought a sobering reminder of the fragility of youth to the proceedings at 2013 graduate Tailer Thompson watched the ceremony from his hospital bed in Kingston. Goddard recalled the day when three members of the graduating class nearly lost their lives. “If you walked in PECI that day you could have heard a pin drop, because our school is so closely knit that concern was flourishing.

GRADS, from page 3

“As my favourite sign in our school states, some of the most important people in the world walk these halls and in your absence, PECI will never be quite the same. You leave behind a legacy that will be an inspiration to younger Panthers who will follow in your footsteps.� Valedictorian George Goddard was entrusted with representing and speaking on behalf of the 2013 class who he uniquely described as a corned beef sandwich. Goddard figured that when he and his classmates entered PECI four years ago, everyone was in their own stereotypical groups. Naturally, he compared the athletic set or jocks to the meat in a sandwich. The meat is nice, but the meat needs to be held together, a job given to PECI's academic muscle. “The academically strong represent the bread because they hold everything together. The school, and the sandwich would fall apart without the academics,� explained Goddard. Next came cucumbers, or the flavour of the sandwich — a task that could only be completed by PECI's talented collection of artists.

The next course of action that was taken is what separates us from the other schools,� Goddard said. “Instead of just carrying on with our everyday lives like any normal school would do, we rallied behind Tailer, and showed him the support that he deserved. Tailer is progressing every day, and when he gets up in the morning and see’s a banner full of love and support coming from his school, that gives him the extra push to get better. PECI doesn’t sit on the side lines, no, we get out there and make a difference.�

“And the final piece of the sandwich an absolutely essential part, the mustard. There is no other group that could come close to illustrating the mustard than the Divas,� Goddard said. “Over these four unforgettable years this sandwich has slowly started to take shape. And its safe to say that tonight, that sandwich is completed. “

Goddard thanked the PECI educational staff for an unforgettable four years but also thanked the Prince Edward County community for supporting the school, its students and their endeavours. “They say it takes a community to raise a child. In our case, it took a County. We need to say thank you to everyone in our community

that has helped us get here today. To the generous award donors, thank you for helping us ease our financial burden. To the numerous community organizations that support our athletic and arts program, thank you for helping us achieve our dreams. Finally, thank you to the local media who support

She said she likes the overall concept of age-in -place, but there are still a lot of aspects that have to be worked out through the master plan process. She said the main concerns shared by residents in attendance were the new entrance and construction noise at the back of the home. “Those are still big concerns that need to be addressed,� she said. “The entrance is still a concern. We have to wait until the second meeting when it comes up before we can say anything really negative or positive. That entrance has always been a concern for us right from Day 1 anyway.� Welbanks said the real positives taken from last week's meeting come from the feeling that representatives from The Planning Partnership are listening and that residents' concerns are being taken seriously. Welbanks said one thing that needs to change for sure at the next meeting is the attendance of county residents. She said she asked county staff to make the meeting more visible through advertising. “This age-in-place concept is for everyone that is aging in this county,� she said. “Some people have the idea it's just for the nursing home and the surrounding area. Everybody needs to be involved in this, it's very important.� Each of the layouts included a new access point on the southern side of the existing home, additional parking, and accommodated for the buildings which have already been proposed by developer Nautical Lands Group. While each of the drawings accommodated some green space, the orientation of that green space was different for each.

ate landscape architect and urban designer Wai Ying Di Giorgio explains aspects of sample master plan drawings to residents at McFarland Home. (Chad Ibbotson/Gazette staff)

The first design approach presented used a central green spine for the property along its southern edge with connected courtyards. Buildings would be focused around two main courtyards. The second design used a looped road with a central green space and would locate parking behind buildings. The third design featured a large central lawn with a road that snakes throughout the property. All buildings would line the road and face the lawn. Urban planner and Planning Partnership founding partner Dan Leeming told those in attendance last week that their input is essential in the firm's design process. Leeming said last week the firm learned several things on their visit to H.J. McFarland Home. He said one of them is the preference of residents that no roads run in front of the home which

could limit their ability to move around in the community. “That mobility is important to all of us,â€? Leeming said. Additionally, he said there were many concerns about the current parking at the home. “The ability of residents to be able to move between the building, parking lots and facilities has to be done very carefully to ensure that folks can get around in an appropriate manner,â€? he said. â€œâ€Ś We were also told that the parking lot right now really doesn't work that well.â€? The firm came up with a vision statement and principles that will guide future development at the site. The vision statement revolved around preserving natural and built heritage while creating developments that meet residents' needs and fit with the community.

Looking back in the

Picton Gazette 80 years ago — 1933

■ Resident Edward Hawkins appeared before Picton town council and asked them to consider road work to widen South Street near his home to make room for pedestrians to use the street. The town’s streets committee was given the matter for consideration ■ Less than a week after County council considered temporarily closing the hospital over a lack of funds, public donations flowed freely to help the facility. The largest donation came from Mrs. Louie Dunlop (nee Spencer), who gave a gift of $2,000 plus an additional $125 toward the furnishing of a room. ■ Fishermen Watson and Cooper reported an unusually large whitefish haul of 1,600 lb from Salmon Point, while Thompson and Lobb reported a 1,000-lb haul of trout. Despite these claims, most fishermen said the average hauls off the county’s south shore were merely fair.

60 years ago — 1953

■ The Liberal Party elected not to run a candidate in Prince Edward-Lennox Aug. 10 federal election as many said it believed the seat to be unwinnable. Progressive Conservative incumbent would be challenged only by independent candidate Donald Thompson. ■ The provincial government’s roads department announced it would pay the entire $43,000 cost to build four-and-ahalf miles of road between Cherry Valley and Milford. Following completion the road would be turned over to the county for regular maintenance. ■ Some 57 members of the 4-H girls’ clubs learned how to dress up homegrown vegetable to make them tempting to eat as part of their club project. The group, which was directed by Marion Montgomery, a Toronto-based Women’s Institute home economist, held an achievement day in Wellington.

40 years ago — 1973

■ Skylight Homes, a company that specialized in prefabricated housing, using a plastic-based material it claimed would match steel in strength, showed off the products it planned to produce while using Picton as its head office. The plant was intended to produce material for 10 homes a day, employ 25 people, and ship to destinations around the world. ■ Picton was one of 29 Ontario communities that completed 1972 without one single fatality on its roads. For that honour, representatives from the town were to attend a special luncheon at the Royal York Hotel to receive a special citation from the Canada Safety Council.

20 years ago — 1993

■ More than 150 homes at Prince Edward Heights rejoined the countywide recycling program after services were suspended in May when the Ontario government balked at the cost of the services. The county, the government services ministry, and other heavy users got back to the table to negotiate a deal. ■ Despite 1,000 signatures protesting the length of the county’s deer hunt, an advisory committee looking into the activity elected to allow the hunt to continue for the same duration as it did in 1992. ■ The re-enactment of a 100-year-old council meeting in Wellington was a tremendous success on Canada Day.

Deroche Lake, for pleasure and destruction I don’t really have anything against ATVs. Honest, I don’t. Some of my closest friends own these machines. In fact, I even rode on the back of one once, all the way from Picton to the Murray Canal on the Millennium Trail. It was on a friend’s machine and we did so to document the distances between access points, for a brochure I was proposing. I can’t say that it was one of my finest moments as I was crippled up for three days with back problems. However, I can say that the experience softened my opinion about these popular machines for I considered my driver to be the epitome of responsible ATV operation. For one thing, we had to have a sunny day – no mud for this owner. And the circle check he did on his machine before we set off on our 50-km journey was thorough enough to make the pilot of a small airplane blush. I thought we’d never get going. A careful and responsible operator, he was. No one knew who I was that day as my entire head was encased in a helmet. But hikers, casual walkers and bicyclists we met waved at us, and smiled. The experience showed me that responsible hikers and ATVers can share trails and can get along if we both give a little. In fact, rarely have I met an ATVer I didn’t like and I have met many on trails all over eastern Ontario – the Cataraqui Trail, the Trail of Two Lakes, and a small section of the Hastings Heritage Trail. I have even walked from Hwy 62 to Sulphide, east of Tweed, on the Trans Canada Trail. Rarely have I met an ATVer who wasn’t courteous and politely shared


the trail. All good stuff. ATVing may not be my cup of tea, but at least they are out there enjoying the outdoors and not vegetating on a couch in front of a television. I had an experience the other day though I would like to share with you. I was leading a group of 14 hikers, mostly all seniors, we were. We were at a 3,500-acre conservation land owned by Quinte Conservation east of Thomasburg, known locally as Deroche Lake, and sometimes as the Cassidy Block. After hiking for six kilometres or so, our charitable opinion of ATVers was beginning to wane. For one thing, they shouldn’t really be in here in the first place. However, their presence has kept a trail open for other users, like us, although there appears to have been no effort on their part to maintain the trail they have created. Prickly ash constantly swats hikers in the face, in places the trail has grown in with woody vegetation, and fallen tree limbs are either driven over, or the trail simply re-routed to avoid

them. The start of the trail near Vanderwater Road is an unbelievable maize of water filled ruts, trenches and cesspools created by ATVers who drive it until it can no longer be driven, then move inland and create some more ruts. The only reprieve comes when the landscape changes to an impressive limestone pavement alvar. Closer to Deroche Lake itself, the trail becomes even worse, if that is imaginable. In one spot they have even altered the natural direction of a watercourse which now follows the track and has washed it out several feet down to a rocky substrate, and no longer driveable. A network of trails now leads them around the trouble spot. The only humorous side note of this network of trenches was the obvious tracks of a bear a couple years back who was unable to negotiate the deep troughs and with feet splayed out, belly slid his way down the side of it, leaving behind a double-sided wake of soft mud where he landed at the bottom. As we arrived at our lunch spot, we were aghast to find more than three dozen beer cans flung over a wide area where there had been a drinking party – doubtless irresponsible ATVers as no one on foot could carry that many full cans five or six kilometres on their backs. We gathered them all up, and as we tied up the plastic bag, a family of ATVers came along – a full size machine carrying an adult couple, followed by two very young children in full riding gear on their own much smaller machine. One member of our group asked if they would mind

taking the secured bag out to our cars for us, if they were going that way, and we would gladly take care of the cans from there. Their reply? “They’re not our cans!” came the curt reply as they rode off to tackle the deep trenches and mud sewers farther along the trail. So there we were, most of us seniors, expected to carry out someone else’s beer cans the remaining three kilometres or so on a hot, humid day. What an example they set for their young children with their thoughtless comment, who will likely grow up believing this is acceptable and responsible behaviour when out on the trails. Fortunately, we have to believe this was an isolated incident, and an exception to the attitude most responsible off roaders share when riding the trails. ATV clubs across Ontario promote safe and responsible behaviour among their members. They need to as these off road machines become increasingly popular among recreationists. They need to demonstrate that they have the interest and responsibility to maintain those trails they travel so they remain safe for travel, and to work together in keeping their trails clean. It would seem that the ATVers who use the trails at Deroche Lake though, some of which are on private land, are of a different ilk.

Youth allegedly drives stolen vehicle into corn field to avoid RIDE check

On Sunday, a 17-year-old Picton youth got more than he bargained for when he took a car that wasn’t his for a ride. Police say early that morning, the driver attempted to avoid a RIDE check near County Rd. 12 and Mayne Lane in Hallowell by driving into a

corn field. The driver was charged with dangerous operation of a motor vehicle and motor vehicle theft, both contrary to the Criminal Code of Canada. The accused, who cannot be named due to the Youth Criminal Justice Act will be in Picton

court July 22.


Sunday afternoon, police responded to reports of a motor vehicle accident on County Rd. 1 when one westbound vehicle clipped another while attempt-

ing to pass. The other vehicle swerved into the ditch. No one was injured. A 46-year-old was charged with dangerous operation contrary to the Criminal Code. He’ll appear July 17 in Picton. -Staff

in search of fish The Wellington Harbour docks were jammed with eager anglers looking to hook the big one

on Saturday as the Wellington Elks Club hosted a fishing derby as part of the 150th anniversary of the formation of the Village of Wellington. Several events marked the end of the year of anniversary celebrations. (Jason Parks/Gazette staff)

SOON, Prince Edward County council could elect to adopt a code of guidelines that would seek to preserve certain heritage aspects of Picton from Lake Street right down to the harbour area. While we are most hesitant to see more red tape and added restriction that would effectively limit the owners of private property from doing what they see fit with that property, these designations might be useful to help Picton develop some sort of cultural identity which would be beneficial to attracting year-round tourism to the core areas. The question that must be asked, however, is what remains of Picton’s heritage that would be preserved and how this district could effectively maintain and enhance those areas. Further, one must wonder if faux heritage truly has the same value as the some of the magnificent stonescapes and designs of yesteryear that people are trying to protect. Maybe, the heritage district is a concept that is too far gone and the designation of individual properties might be the better way to go. After all, which buildings standing today truly meet the standard the district seeks to enforce. Are they all from a certain time in history or have some owners always done better than others in creating a certain feel from their own buildings? Starting in the 1990s, some will recall that Major League Baseball parks started to revert from the multi-purpose stadiums of the latter half of the past century to single-use ballparks drawing on faux- history that attempted to make the parks unique and somewhat of a throwback. Today, several architects have made the argument that by grabbing that trend, a lot of the cities who build parks during that wave built cookie-cutter projects that were really not discernable from the one in another town, save the logo beneath the scoreboard. Instead of being unique and being an attraction, those cities fell wave to part of the latest trend and didn’t prosper. It’s safe to say that many small towns in eastern Ontario have heritage buildings and some have more pronounced heritage districts than Picton does. It’s no secret, however, that this town has a rich history with the likes of the United Empire Loyalists landing in this area and Sir John A. Macdonald’s upbringing around the region. Is there enough built heritage — particularly among the commercial sector to pay tribute to that past? Would one be farther ahead to invest the time, effort, and money involved in creating this heritage district into creating a comprehensive strategy for marketing the heritage that we all know is here in spades — after all, surely individual designation could be as powerful a tool in preserving the next brick church from contact with the wrecking ball. . One hopes that such questions will have been considered before council passes something incredibly stringent that makes it difficult for owners to comply, just on the hopes that it may help celebrate the storied past. There is no simple answer here.

Young artists called to take part in library’s teen show

All youth, ages 11 to 19, are invited to enter a piece of artwork in this year’s Liam Garrett Memorial Art Show at the library. From pencil drawings to sculptures, all mediums and all styles are welcome, including photography. A number of pieces can be submitted as well by the same artist. The art show offers young people a chance to have their work displayed throughout the Picton branch of the library all summer long. Prizes, such as art supplies, can also be won by taking part in the show. “This is a unique opportunity for young artists to have their drawings, paintings, and works in any other art form seen by the many people who visit the library during July and August,” says children and youth co-ordinator Liz Zylstra. The Art Show winners are chosen both by professional artists and by a “People’s Choice’ ballot. Judging this year are local artists Milé Murtanovski of Small Pond Arts ( and Nell Casson ( The deadline to enter a piece in time for judging is Saturday, July 13 before 3p.m. The art show reception takes place one week later, on Saturday, July 20 at 11 a.m.. Come meet the judges, hear their presentations and learn who the winners are. The people’s choice winner will be announced at the end of the summer. Another event coming up for youth is a presentation on Saturday, July 6 by the 4-H Club at the Picton branch of the library. Drop in anytime between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. to see the 4-H displays and learn about all the great programs and opportunities this youth organization offers in our community. 4-H leaders are always

needed so if you have an idea or would like to share a skill with young people, do come by and have a chat with 4-H organizers. Lastly, the library is happy to welcome Thomas Latizeau-Szewczok, a teen from Montreal who will be working at the library until mid-August as part of a YMCA exchange program. “The opportunity to be part of this program was presented to me during the school year and I thought it would be a good chance to get some valuable work experience,” says LatizeauSzewczok. ”I love to read and I am thrilled to be working with the people at the library here.” The Montrealer recently graduated from Quebec’s equivalent of high school and will be going to college in the fall. “I thought this would be a good chance to perfect my English as I have always gone to school in French, but I will be attending an English college.” The opportunities for youth are many and varied at the County of Prince Edward Public Library & Archives, and volunteer high school community hours can also be earned over the summer. To find out more, contact the library at 613-476-5962 or e-mail: bsweet@peclibrary.

Feigned outrage over Trudeau’s fee shows desperation

Prince Edward-Hastings MP Daryl Kramp’s reading of Conservative talking points in the House of Commons on June 18, 2013 proved to be pathetically transparent. Kramp’s feigned outrage regarding Justin Trudeau’s ability to command some rather hefty fees on the speakers’ circuit was obviously just another attempt by the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) to shift Canadians’ focus away from Mike Duffy’s sordid little affair. Bloated greed surfacing in false expense claims from a Conservative senator bears no comparison. One would think Conservatives might applaud such fair functioning within the free enterprise system. Justin Trudeau’s speaking engagements are booked through an agency called Speakers’ Spotlight, which represents a wide range of public speakers. In Conflict of Interest and Ethics Commissioner Mary Dawson’s April 13, 2010 report, written in response to

Peterborough Conservative MP Dean Del Maesto’s March 15, 2010 complaint about Justin Trudeau getting paid to speak, she wrote: “He [Mr. Trudeau] has included a letter from Mr. Martin Perelmuter, President of Speakers‘ Spotlight, confirming their bookings for Mr. Trudeau are only in his capacity as an individual who speaks about environment, youth and education. Mr. Perelmuter added that this is made clear to clients, and if the event seems remotely political, clients are directed to his Member of Parliament offices to book him as a Member of Parliament.” Commissioner Dawson concluded her report by stating, “On the basis of the information provided, I have no reason to believe that Mr. Trudeau has contravened sections 8 or 9 of the Code He is carrying on business as a paid speaker while respecting his other obligations under the Code, and this is permitted under Section 7 of

the Code. For these reasons, I have decided that an inquiry is not warranted.” This public offensive against Justin Trudeau was sparked when the PMO released a letter written by Grace Foundation board member Susan Buck to the Speakers Spotlight. president Perelmuter responded to Buck via e-mail on April 9 saying, “we were confused by the request for a refund since we had followed up after the event, nine months prior to receiving the letter, and were told that the Grace Foundation was pleased with the outcome of Justin’s presentation.” Two weeks ago Trudeau offered to reimburse any organization which feels they did not get their money’s worth from his speaking engagement. To date he has had none ask for a refund. Dig deeper and the light starts to creep in on this situation, courtesy of Revenue Canada files, where we find the vice-chair of the Grace

Foundation (a.k.a. The Church Home Charitable Foundation Inc.) Judith Baxter, has very close ties to the Conservative Party. In 2011 Heritage Minister James Moore gave her a lucrative four-year term as a “trustee of the Board of Trustees of the Canadian Museum of Civilization.” Dragging this dead horse out of the Conservative PMO, since the Ethics Commissioner gave a very clear ruling on this issue over three years ago, shows how desperate Harper’s braintrust on the Hill has become. No doubt Kramp was only too willing to obey his master’s request to read their note in the House since getting time in the spotlight of Question Period is hard to come by. Having something valuable to say is what Justin Trudeau was paid for. My guess is that Kramp can only wish his own thoughts were equally valuable.

The Environmental Review Tribunal (ERT) hearing regarding the approval of Gilead Power's Ostrander Point Wind Energy Park began on March 4 and has finally completed the hearing portion of the process. ]There have been dozens of witnesses and experts from all parties and more than 150 pieces of evidence presented. All that remains for us to do in Prince Edward County is to await the decision of the two-person panel. The decision will be announced on, or before, July 10. And then what happens? If you read the letters and

articles that were prepared by opponents of the wind project then you may think that things were going very well for them, but we must realize that they were also fundraising through the entire process and had to keep a positive spin on things. If, however, the decision does not go in their favour then I expect that a side effect of all of their positive reporting will be a certain amount of outcry and outrage from those who opposed the project and supported the appeal and had the feeling that they would be successful.

There are a couple of blogs on the internet which reported the events at the hearing. They can be found at and The first is by a group who is opposed to the proposed wind energy projects in PEC. The second is by a supporter of renewable energy. They each provide an insight into the events at the ERT hearing, but I expect that the most telling summary will be the one written by the ERT panel members that will be issued with their decision.

I suggest that if you have a personal interest in the result of the ERT hearing then you should take some time to review the decision for yourself. Too often we let others inform us what our attitude should be on an issue. Inform yourself by reading the hearing decision. Opinions based upon headlines may not accurately reflect the substance of the decision. Let your reaction be based on knowledge, not on what others want us to do.

On June 28 my husband and I attended a show celebrating Wellington's 150th anniversary called "Wellington Thru the Ages-A Musical Gala" We thought that it would be an evening of songs and dances with a few sketches showcasing period costumes. Were we

wrong. Make no mistake this was a very fast-paced, firstrate show. The production consisted of 10 scenes that were so well done it left the audience wanting more I will leave it to the local media to describe this magnificent show to you. I will, however at the risk

of being "strung up"ask the co-ordinator and volunteer cast if they would consider staging this show again in the future. Thank you to all of you who gave us an evening that we will not forget It was a sold-out performance and I know that there are many

who were sorry that they missed it. The funds raised from this show by the way will go towards the beautification of the village. Wellington — you are an amazing community.

I would very much like to thank the organizers of the Picton Canada Day fireworks. We went to the park

to watch the show and we were not disappointed. The show was full of the “oohs” and “awes” of the

crowd and the squeals of excitement from the little ones. It is so nice to see little towns still being able to put

on such a phenomenal light show.

Mariners Park to recognize Wilson Fort Kente exhibit to be dedicated Chad Ibbotson

Staff writer

The Mariners Park Museum will recognize the efforts of a fondly-remembered colleague on Saturday. Retired board member Gary Wilson â&#x20AC;&#x201D; who chaired the board and worked with the museum for 15 years â&#x20AC;&#x201D; will have his name enshrined with a plaque on a piece of history he helped save. Mariners Park Museum site curator Diane DenyesWenn was instrumental and saving and relocating Fort Kente. Once located in Consecon, Denyes-Wenn said the fort was in danger of being destroyed until Wilson stepped in and advocated for its relocation to its current location at Mariners Park Museum in 2000. Denyes-Wenn said the 72year-old Wilson has been battling Alzheimer's disease for the past two years and the museum felt the time was right to recognize his accomplishments. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We wanted to make sure

that he was aware that we appreciate all that he's done for us and that the fort probably would have been dismantled and burned up had he not had the County move it,â&#x20AC;? she said. The original Fort Kente was built in 1813 on the western tip of the Bay of Quinte by the Provincial Dragoons to protect the portage. The replica of the fort â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which Wilson helped save â&#x20AC;&#x201D; was built in 1992 by the Kente Portage Heritage Conservation Society under the direction of Dr. Paul Germain. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It had to be moved or destroyed and we cut it in half and moved it down to Mariners,â&#x20AC;? Denyes-Wenn said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(Wilson) spearheaded it, he did all the liaisons between the County and the people who owned it and was on site for the whole event of it being cut in half and loaded and brought down here.â&#x20AC;? While Denyes-Wenn said Prince Edward County never had a fort in the traditional sense, Fort Kente was more of a rest stop and ammunition depot for the military during the War of 1812. Denyes-Wenn said Wil-

60 Days for

son is missed on the board and by those who have worked at the museum over the last 15 years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He's very vibrant, he's very outspoken. He's definitely a leader,â&#x20AC;? she said, adding that Wilson's connections with other groups helped assist in the fort's relocation. She said that personality and his work deserved commemoration. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After 15 years of working diligently he started up our first gala dinner; he was instrumental in starting that up, (and) he was also instrumental in starting the fish fry, which are our two major events,â&#x20AC;? she said. Wilson was also never afraid to stand up and fight for the museum, DenyesWenn said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was always speaking our for us. (If) Council was ready to close museums he'd be one of the first ones to stand up and say, 'this is important and we need to recognize marine history in the county,'â&#x20AC;? she said. The plaque dedication will take place this Saturday, July 6 at 11 a.m. at the museum, 2065 County Rd. 13.

Black Prince is close to home in Picton but its wines draw acclaim from far and wide

Staying closer to home Del and I recently took advantage of the good weather to put the top down and venture just down the road through Picton to visit one of the county's most visible and original wineries: Black Prince Winery. Why the name "Black Prince"? The "Black Prince" was an Edward (Edward County), eldest son of Edward III who was born in 1330. Black Prince was founded by a group of members of The Opimian Society (the non-profit national wine society of Canada whose members co-operatively purchase wines from around the world). In the early 1980s, the group invested in vineyards in California, when real estate was reasonable in Napa Valley, and wineries were springing up and communities were growing. In 2000, their attention came back to Canada along with the proceeds of the sale of

able to cut his teeth in cold–climate winemaking. In 2003 the local grape crop was declared `short` by the Ontario government, and all wineries were permitted to import grapes, which suited Fallow fine and he made Californian Chardonnay, while Webb experimented with Cabernet franc, Baco noir, Chardonnay and Vidal from local county vineyards through 2004 and 2005. In spring 2006 Fallow fled the Canadian cold for a new project in Argentina leaving Webb with the wine-making duties and Rod de CourcyIreland moved from Toronto to Prince Edward County to become president of Black Prince – a flurry of awards and national attention followed as Webb produced some really good whites and some stunning local red wines in 2006 and 2007. During this time the team at Black Prince also helped a number of other county

position to convince the group to invest in Prince Edward County. The group agreed and Webb and some Opimian colleagues invested in a property and planted 10 acres on a 50-acre parcel on the Loyalist Parkway – in the western gateway to Picton. “Immediately establishing a working winery while planting a vineyard and developing the property was the plan and we had no shortage of talent on the wine-side ," says Webb. Californian winemaker Michael Fallow was recruited by John Sambrook (a founding partner and general manager of the Opimian Society whom had known Michael from twenty-five years of winemaking in California) in order to help hone Geoff Webb’s skills as Black Prince`s director of winemaking. 2002 was the first vintage made at Black Prince, and, although all the grapes were from Niagara, Fallow was

grape growers aspire to fulfill their dreams, produce wine and establish themselves, including Sandbanks, Hillier Pinot noir, Del-Gatto Bella Vigne and Harwood. In 2008 Webb turned to Terence Van Rooyen (head of Niagara College Teaching Winery) for advice with the challenging vintage of 2008 and Terence continued to consult with Webb as winemaker through 2009 and the exceptional and multi-award winning vintage of 2010 - all the time imparting his knowledge and skills while guiding Webb to the next levels of cold-climate viticulture and winemaking. Webb says he was very thankful to have had mentors like Fallow and Van Rooyen – two extremely talented winemakers at the top of their game – along with the business acumen of Sambrook and de Courcy-Ireland. Unique at Black Prince are local county oak barrels, crafted by Pete Bradford of Carriage House Cooperage. Over the past five years Webb has worked with him to produce some truly local oak-aged wines, and many awards from their efforts are in evidence, as well as some blended wines – something for everyone, and the largest selection of wines from Prince Edward County. Black Prince is also fierce supporter of local community groups, teams and events and designs private wine labels to support their causes. Looking around the Black Prince tasting centre, there are plenty of indications of pride and a real sense of

place in this community. Geoff Webb continues as general manager and director of winemaking and recently added a medal winning Merlot to the stable of interesting fine wines available at Black Prince Winery or through the LCBO. Asked what the future hold for Black Prince? "It`s not a secret", says Webb, "just wait and see". "We're intent on growing, not only the wine production but the entire concept of working and living in a vineyard setting – a sustainable, green community built around a working vineyard was in our plans from the start. Situating the vineyard in the middle of the property to be accessible from designated walking paths and constructing the pond to be attractive and maintain wildlife for the residents seemed entirely reasonable – perhaps one day soon cottages and even a clubhouse – who wouldn’t want to live in such a natural setting and help to look after the vines – a true community cooperative is what we now want to build,” explains Webb. So, next time you're out "sippin in the county', make sure you stop by Black Prince and have a glass of wine out on their patio. Then stare out into the vineyard and try imagining the future that Webb envisions ... the possibilities are truly exciting!

Lavender festival looks for growth in year two Expanded group of musicians to perform at two-day event ChadIbbotson

Staff writer

With their namesake in full bloom, Prince Edward County Lavender will celebrate the season with its second annual lavender festival this weekend. Prince Edward County Lavender co-owners Rolande Ann Leblanc and Derek Ryles are again inviting the public to experience their fragrant purple fields this Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Ryles said this year's festival will look to expand on what was accomplished in 2012. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last year we had over 700 (people) over the two days and we had basically very little calls questioning about it because we were very low-key on the advertising,â&#x20AC;? Ryles said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This year we've had in the order of five-to-15 calls a day regarding it.â&#x20AC;? Ryles said he's not sure how many people to expect, but it looks like the event is trending upward in terms of attendance at this point. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We went to the One of a Kind Show in Toronto in the

spring and of the thousands of people we talked to there, they all got notified of the lavender festival,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We expect it to be wellattended.â&#x20AC;? The show will again feature demonstrations of lavender essential oil distillation in addition to plant care and maintenance tips, sam-

ple tastings of culinary lavender and other fine herbs and teas. Visitors will also be able to pick their own lavender and create something â&#x20AC;&#x153;uniquely lavender.â&#x20AC;? Ryles said variety is key in making the event a success. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you offer a wide variety of things happening at the festival, it can be of a

broader interest to the public in general,â&#x20AC;? he said. Visitors looking for a bite can purchase maple pork sausage on a bun from JC Nyman Farms or check out Moonlight on the Lake B&B owner Suzanne Lafrance's pies. New this year will be an expanded list of live musicians who will perform throughout the two-day event. The list of acts includes The Reasons, Lorraine Sine, Station Road, Drew Ackerman, John DeVries and friends, Harry, Doug and Glen Trio, R & R, and the Elly Kelly Band. Ryles said the acts have a distinctly local flavour and many are accomplished performers. Also new this year are several kid-friendly features including face painting and the balloon creations of Chuckles the Clown. Gavin North of Honey Pie Hives and Herbals will also speak about the life and work of the honey bee. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He'll have a hive dismantled and be able to answer questions about bees,â&#x20AC;? Ryles said. Admission is $5 while children under 12 are free. Ryles encouraged everyone to come out and see what the festival has to offer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Come one, come all, bring a lawn chair,â&#x20AC;? Ryles laughed.

Walking circles provide a fun way to stay active within Picton town limits this summer

If you like walking outdoors you can pick up (or download) a pamphlet and have an even more enjoyable experience walking in downtown Picton. Walking is excellent exercise and it can also be a great way to experience the town of Picton. The walking circle idea was conceived originally to connect the Millennium Trail to the downtown Picton area and at the same time address a common question asked by trail walkers: “How do we get back to our car without retracing our steps?” A few years ago, the Picton recreation committee and the Picton Business Improvement Association (BIA) worked together to design walking circles in Picton with



lengths of 5, 3 and 1 kilometres. They produced a

colourful map of the routes that is easy to follow. The longest route on the map (5 km) includes slightly more than two kilometres of the Millennium Trail, as well as a walk through the downtown area. The three-kilometre route also takes you through downtown Picton, and then through an older residential section of town. The shortest route is described in the brochure as a leisurely 1 km “walk in the park”. All routes start and end in the centre of town at the Mary Street Parking Lot. You will find free parking in this municipal parking lot. The BIA and recreation committee also included line drawings of stretches that you

can use before and after you walk. The routes were designed to accommodate a wide range of interests. Download a copy of the map on the BIA website at Pick up a copy of the Picton Walking Circles map at the Community Care office in The Armoury or at many of the downtown Picton merchants. For more information call the Picton BIA at 613-476-7901 ext. 211. For information on Community Care’s three indoor walking programs call 613476-7493. From Thanksgiving to the Victoria Day weekend you can walk in a safe, controlled environment.


After walking for exercise – or anytime – you might need some help caring for your feet. Seniors often have trouble trimming toenails, have calluses, cracked heals or corns. Community Care holds foot care clinics with specially trained, friendly registered nurses (RNs) that take their time with seniors to meet their footcare needs. The cost is $20.per appointment. Call Community Care for Seniors at 613-476-7493 to access this service in either Picton or Wellington.


Is the thought of it getting you down? Seniors have

access to a list of prescreened workers to hire at reasonable rates. Help is available with yard work and heavy housework such as cleaning walls & ceilings. Register to use this service at the Community Care office in The Armoury, 206 Main Street, Picton or call 613-4767493 to arrange a home visit with one of the staff.


If seniors are isolated and need some encouragement and support, Prince Edward Community Care can match them with friendly volunteers for visits in the home. To sign up for this program, or refer someone, call Community Care at 613-476-7493.

Bats, there are a lot of misconceptions about these little critters and the facts and myths surrounding them are as wide spread. Bats are actually beneficial to have around, as they eat thousands of nasty bugs such as mosquitoes and black flies. However, if the bats are nesting some place where they don't belong, such as your attic, action is required. Bats are often persecuted due to the fact that most people have no understanding of bat ecology and the important role they play. There are eight species of bats found in Ontario. The most common are the little brown bat and the big brown bat,



and it is these two species who normally take up residency in our homes. In the summer, bats may select attics for raising their young; bats can squeeze through very tiny spaces (as narrow as six millimeters) and go unnoticed for years. Bats are not rodents, and have little in common with mice or rats. Bats are not blind, and they do not intentionally get tangled in your hair. Many people seem to think that all bats have rabies. This is not true. Quite the contrary, as less than 1% ever contract rabies. Bats are not filthy little critters. They are meticulous about keeping their fur clean and groomed. Bats do not chew their way into structures, they only use gaps and holes that already exist, and locate them by sensing air currents and temperature. They are simply opportunists. Since they are nocturnal and for the most part very quiet animals, they often use attics for years before the odor from the build-up of droppings alerts us to their presence. Bats become a problem when they decide to use our attic or other sections of a home or building for a roosting or nursery colony. The accumulation of their droppings (guano) and urine below their roosting areas and this is where the

problem lies. Accumulations of their guano may harbor infectious microbes and can cause odor and bug problems, which is the primary reason bats should be removed from our homes. Cryptococcus and Histoplasma are the two fungi found in bat guano that can cause potentially life-threatening infections in humans. While infections from these fungi are uncommon the potential is drastically increased when bats are present in our homes. It is highly unusual for a bat to contact a person, though a sick bat may have no fear of humans. Almost every person who gets bit does so because they pick up a sick or injured bat. Like any other wild animal, bats should never be handled at any time, especially when found on the ground or in a home. Most people do not tolerate that bats have invaded their home and panic when they discover them. Their first reaction is to immediately seal all the holes on the structure. It is the absolute worst thing you can do, but unfortunately the most common step that is taken. Never seal your home without first performing extraction If a bat is found in your home and you are not able to contact a restoration contractor, always wear thick leather gloves for capturing or remov-

ing. NEVER try to catch a bat with your bare hands! Unless you are 100% certain the bat in your home had no contact with anyone, bats found inside your home should be taken to your local health department for rabies testing. Even though rabies in bats is not common on a statistical basis, rabies is a deadly disease. These are some common points of entry: • Broken or poorly-fitted screens • Loose or missing shingles or tiles • Places where flashing or boards have come loose • Locations where pipes or wiring enter buildings • Where walls meet the eaves at the gable ends of an attic • Where porches attach to the main part of a house • Where dormers meet the roof • Cracks and crevices where siding forms corners, or at places where it meets windows, doors or chimneys Report any unusual bat deaths to the Canadian Cooperative Wildlife Health Centre at 1-866-6734781 or the Natural Resources Information Centre at 1-800-667-1940.

Here’s how to make your home feel like a getaway

Planning a staycation this summer? Summer is a terrific time to sit back, relax and enjoy well deserved time with family and friends. With the sun shining and kids out of school, going away on vacation is on everyone’s mind but may not be in the budget. Luckily, by making some easy and affordable changes to your décor and yard, you can transform your home into your own personal summer oasis. From bowls of fresh fruit in the kitchen and bright towels in the bathroom to twinkling lights and hanging baskets of flowers on the deck, a few simple changes will

help make your home feel like a summer escape. Here are some tips to help you kick back, relax and soak up the dog days of summer at home: De-clutter: Lighten up by putting away throws and blankets, trinkets and anything reminiscent of winter, including slipcovers and heavy rugs. Add flowers: Fresh cut flowers will brighten up every room in the house and make your home smell fresh and floral. Freshen up: Refresh rooms by adding a pop of bright color or white. Change out dark pillows and draperies, paint a wall or

piece of furniture white and buy bright-colored towels for the bathroom. Dine al fresco: Fire up the grill and eat outside! Turning on the stove heats up your home and keeps you from enjoying the weather so get grilling and enjoy summer favourites like corn on the cob and burgers outside. Primp the patio: Make your patio or deck your own personal oasis with overflowing baskets of flowers, outdoor rugs, twinkling lights and comfortable patio furniture to encourage late summer nights spent outdoors. Bring the outdoors in: Once

the day cools off, open windows and let the fresh air blow through your home. “Making your home into a yearround sanctuary doesn’t have to be overly costly or time consuming,” says Phil Dorner, president of the Ontario Real Estate Association. “It’s the little touches and attention to detail that can transform

your space, not only for you and your family but if you are planning on listing your home, for potential buyers as well,” says Dorner.




The Picton Gazette

Picton man named top reggae radio personality


Web broadcaster earns award first year it was given AdAm BrAmBurger Staff writer

For many years Picton has enjoyed a vibrant music scene for a town its size. When polled, however, few would likely tab this area as home to a mover and shaker in the reggae genre. Perhaps, that opinion will change thanks to the work of Ras Bingi Catt — or Franklin Bailey, to those who aren’t familiar with his music or his online radio show. On Sunday, he was named the recipient of the 2013 Reggae Radio Personality Award by Reggae Xclusive Magazine. About five years ago, Bailey says he saw the Internet as a way to promote his Bluntlife production company, which he says has produced the music of people across Canada and in other countries overseas. Bailey developed a show that airs on his web site three times a week and he says it’s clear that the industry has taken notice of what he has been doing with his air time. Often, artists and producers send Bailey their new music weeks before they are ready to release it, allowing him to play the releases on his show before they’re out in stores or in clubs and he is also able to host interviews with those musicians and advertise the shows they take part in. Reggae Xclusive Magazine has been publishing about the music for 13 years and naturally, its staff tuned into Bailey’s shows. Eventually, they were trading advertising for one another and keeping open communication about what they would be featuring. Recently, Bailey received word from the magazine that he had to rush down to Toronto’s Jamaican Canadian Centre to receive a new award, which was being presented for the first time on Sunday. “The awards show was amazing, I was there with

friends I hadn’t seen in 20 or 30 years. It felt really good to be there.” Bailey said he was pleased that he efforts to promote reggae music were being recognized by the singers, promotors, radio hosts, and producers who also spend their time trying to spread their music and increase its popularity. “I was kind of shocked to win. Being recognized for your hard work is a great feeling,” he said. “I feel so proud to receive this award two months before I start the radio broadcasting course at Loyalist College.” Bailey said he is hopeful his success will help develop more interest in world music in Prince Edward County and he’d like to see the community support children picking up instrucments and taking up arts. Following the show, Bailey returned to the county with fellow reggae performer Casper (Ron Tuttle) to perform a free show on Canada Day. He said Tuttle had not performed a show in Picton, his hometown, for nearly 12 years. Bailey is also about to release his latest offering as Ras Bingi Catt, a five-track CD entitled Education Revolution. He said the songs were inspired by those fighting for their right to an education in the face of escalating tuition fees in Quebec and elsewhere. He expects it to be available in local stores like Books & Company and Town and Country Video by July 15.

BARTMAN. In loving memory of Carolyn Bartman, July 7, 1988. The Jeffery Family. BAVERSTOCK, Hazel. In memory of a dear mother, who passed away July 8, 2001. You may have thought I didn't see, Or that I hadn't heard, Life lessons that you taught to me, But I got every word. Perhaps you thought I missed it all, And that I'd grow apart, But Mom, I picked up everything, It's written on my heart. Without you, Mom I wouldn't be The person I am today; You built a strong foundation No one can take away. I've grown up with your values, And I am very glad I did; So here's to you, dear mother, From your forever grateful son. Forever loved and greatly missed, until we meet again. Love George COLE, Stephen Burton. September 24, 1960 - July 4, 2009. Your presense we miss, Your memory we treasure, Loving you always, Forgetting you never. Dad and Ruth

Heritage Conservation District plan to come before committee next Thursday Proposal would designate Pictonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s downtown, guide its development Chad Ibbotson

Staff writer

The future of Picton's Main Street could be guided by its past if the Picton Main Street Heritage Conservation District Plan is ultimately approved by council. The plan will be up for debate at the Thursday, July 11 committee-of-the-whole meeting where councillors will make a recommendation to council. The meeting begins at 9:30 a.m.


Industrial - Commercial - Residential





The plan would designate the buildings and other aspects of a section of Main Street from Lake Street up to and including the harbour as having heritage value. The plan was developed for the municipality by ERA Architects Inc. and outlines principles and design guidelines that will manage future development on Main Street as well as any alterations to existing buildings. Heritage District Plan project co-ordinator Bernard Shalka said heritage districts were popularized in the United Kingdom, but have become commonplace throughout the United States and Canada. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What they really are about is respecting heritage and recognizing what the value of heritage is for future generations,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There's also an economic benefit to creating heritage districts which has been established. They help create places that people really recognize, want to shop in, and really want to hang out in.â&#x20AC;? Municipalities are able to designate a concentration of buildings, sites, structures, or landscape features as a Heritage Conservation District (HCD) under Part V of the Ontario Heritage Act. This

Legal Services

differs from designations under Part IV, which only apply to single properties. Currently 11 properties within the proposed HCD plan are designated under Part IV and these properties will still have obligations associated with those designations. The Picton Main Street HCD is divided in three parts under the plan â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Main Street west, downtown core, and Bridge Street â&#x20AC;&#x201D; each with its own heritage attributes. Aspects such as the cenotaph along Main Street west, the consistent street wall created by two and three-storey commercial blocks in the downtown core, and Bridge Street's role of connecting Main Street to the harbour are noted as significant. The district is also noted for its diversity in building styles, which range from Loyalist/Georgian (1780s1860s) to modern classical (1940s-50s). â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of the reasons people like to come to Picton Main Street is because of its heritage character, it's as simple as that,â&#x20AC;? Shalka said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a way of trying to ensure that is maintained over the long term, that you don't get demolition of important heritage buildings as we saw on the west part of

Main Street with the church.â&#x20AC;? The HCD will look to conserve distinctive features, but at the same time allow new buildings to be constructed and old ones to be renovated. This will be achieved through a set of guidelines and principles. These principles include making sure that properties within the district are maintained and repaired, and upgrades should complement the historic design. The plan says new development should fit with the character of the district by using traditional craftsmanship and design materials, but should not imitate past styles. Shalka said the plan will look to prevent development that isn't supportive of Main Street's heritage character, but he said that won't mean all building will have to be â&#x20AC;&#x153;mock heritage buildings.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;It does mean that they should be compatible with the built form that's already been established,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you go to Europe there are some really spectacular examples of modern architecture that's blended in with heritage streetscapes very, very well.â&#x20AC;? In addition, things like the height of buildings, signage, and storefronts would be

controlled by specific guides. Heritage permits would be required for any alterations to buildings within the district. The plan outlines a permit process that is split into major and minor levels. A heritage permit (major) would be required for things like demolition, relocation, or extensive alterations to exterior elements. A heritage permit (minor) would be required for things like alterations to storefronts, additions to portions of a building or replacement of exterior elements. Things like minor exterior repairs, weather stripping and caulking of windows, and interior renovation work would not require a heritage permit. ERA Architects Inc. Planner Alex Rowse-Thompson said the first part of the plan spells out exactly what the distinctive pieces of Main Street are, while the second part of the plan spells out design guidelines for property owners and potential developers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If someone wanted to design a new storefront they could go into the design guidelines in the plan and read about the certain types of elements that are important to think about when

designing that storefront,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It also gives staff and council the guidelines to measure those proposals against. It's basically providing a baseline for evaluation of change. It's managing change, it's not to prevent change.â&#x20AC;? She said there were two distinct concerns shared by residents throughout the public consultation phase of the development of the plan. She said one was cost while another was the thought that the plan would be â&#x20AC;&#x153;another level of red tape.â&#x20AC;? She said those fears can be allayed by explaining the process. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It's not actually that much red tape, it's a very simple process,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The way we designed and created the heritage permit process was influenced by those concerns â&#x20AC;Ś if something more minor is proposed it would go through a faster process than something like a brand new completely designed building and the demolition of an older building.â&#x20AC;?

Wellington Lions invite some new faces onto water Saturday Local celebrities try dragon boat racing as part of village’s 150th anniversary celebrations prior to festival in August AdAmBrAmBurger

Staff writer

There may have been some highly anticipated skirmishes on the water Saturday — like the race pitting MPP Todd Smith against Mayor Peter Mertens, but in reality, it wasn’t a day about keeping score, said Wellington Lions

Club president Janet Marissen. “We were just having some fun out on the water,” said Marrisen. “It was our contribution to Wellington’s 150th and a chance to get 18 local celebrities some exposure in dragon boat racing.” If the record must know,

Wellington resident Mertens did take advantage of being at home as he encouraged his boaters to cross the line before Smith in their showdown race. Marissen said through the activity, she was hopeful the celebrities and others caught the excitement of the sport

and considered joining in for the annual Wellington festival Aug. 10. “It doesn’t matter if you’re a fitness club or an office group, we need 20 paddlers and $600 for a boat,” she said of the club’s banner fundraiser. “If you can’t fill the boat, we’ll put some peo-

Copperheads sit in first place near halfway point Just four points separate first- and sixth-place teams JAsonPArks

As the temperature is beginning to rise, so is the action on the local fastball diamonds. At about the halfway mark of the 2013 Prince Edward County Men's Fastball season, the standings are tight as just four points separate league leading Roblin Family Plumbing and sixth place Danford Contracting and it should be noted the Frankfordbased club has three games in hand on the Copperheads thanks to some rainouts. The Copperheads slid into first on Tuesday evening, doubling up on Tyendinaga's Whitepine Watershed 4-2. Brian Norman went three-for-three at the dish and came around to score

the winning run. In action in Frankford Tuesday, Adam Danford pitched his club to a 5-2 win over the visiting Warren Excavating Ameliasburgh A's. Last week, lefty Will Claus got the Copperheads past the Beatty Seeds Huskers 2-1, striking out 11. In the late game of the Beatty Seeds double header, Greg Wallwork plated the winning run and Mike Stever picked up the win for the Terra Vista Rockies as they shaded the Huskers 3-2 While Roblin Family Plumbing (4-2-2) is holding down top slot in the league with 10 points, Whitepine (3-1-2) and Beatty Seeds (43-0) are tied for second with eight points. The Terra Vista Rockies (3-3-1) and the A's (3-3-1) are tied four fourth with seven points each while Danford (3-2-0) is in sixth. The Tweed Midgets, a new entry to the circuit, are bringing up the rear with a 0-6-0 record.

ple in it.” Like the celebrities, Marissen said most people would just need a few practices on the water and they could easily pick up the sport themselves. To register for the festival or to learn more about dragon boating, Marissen said

people should call her at 613961-0990 online or look up the Wellington (Ontario) District Lions Club online. Marissen also said the club owes thanks to regular Ottawa Dragon Boat Festival announcer Colin Fredericks, who kept the races moving in a fun way Saturday.

Challenger soccer camps slated to return this summer

Prince Edward County Soccer Association players looking to improve their skills can join with more than 120,000 players around the world to take part in a Challenger camp this summer. Following a successful trial with the British camps last summer, the association scheduled a pair of sections this year for players between the ages of 3-18. The Challenger program features a Monday-Friday schedule with an emphasis on foot skills development through a 1,000 touches curriculum. Each day will feature technical and tactical practices, a World Cup-style tournament, and other fun games. Children will be treated to a cultural experience on the pitch and are also promised lessons in the areas of responsibility, leadership, integrity, and sporstmanship.

This week, while I was at Canadian Tire a gardener came to see us about a problem with honeysuckle. The leaves had turned dark and many of them had fallen off. Honeysuckle is not prone to diseases with the exception of powdery mildew which is a fungal infection. One of the ways to prevent powdery mildew is to ensure that the plant is in a situation where air can circulate freely in and around the plant. Honeysuckle likes full sun and often develops powdery mildew if it is in a shady spot. Given that this plant was both in full sun and had lots of air circulating through it, we chose to use a fungicide on it which contained sulfur. It will be important for this gardener to clean up all around the plant this fall and dispose of the foliage by bagging or burning to prevent further spread. Powdery mildew is unsightly but it will not kill the plant. However, once a honeysuckle develops this fungus, it will be prone to have it each year so early application of a fungicide each spring will be

KATHY MACPHERSON helpful. Since this plant had not had this condition in the past, I would surmise that it was developed last year with the drought as droughtstressed plants tend to get this disease. We got a photo sent into our email address with a subject line of “How do I stop this garden invader?” It turns out that the invader was goutweed. Many gardeners know what the variegated goutweed looks like but fewer know what the plain old wild goutweed looks like. It’s not a very pretty plant and this gardener was right when she labeled it a “tyrant”. Goutweed was introduced to North America as a garden ornamental and it has become a very invasive plant. The solution to the removal of goutweed is a lot of hard work by digging it to get all of its roots. It may be

necessary to remove all the plants in and around goutweed to get to all the goutweed roots and then put back the plants that you want to keep. Solarizing the soil where goutweed has been removed may also be necessary in order to kill all the roots. To solarize the soil, you will need to put down black plastic over the soil bed and tuck it into the soil securely so that no air can circulate beneath it and leave it on for several weeks. You are effectively cooking the roots. I once heard Ed Lawrence talk about goutweed and he said the only sure-fire way to rid yourself of goutweed is to move! While this gardener did not buy the goutweed but inherited it when she bought her house, it’s worth asking ourselves each time we buy new plants whether the plant is native to our area or something that has arrived from another continent. Japanese Knotweed comes to mind as a really beautiful plant brought here from Asia many years ago. Japanese Knotweed takes over where it is planted and is one of the most difficult plants to remove short of using a backhoe! Plants that are native to our area are always the most disease resistant and hearty ones we can buy. They are suited to our growing conditions and that saves gardeners a lot of backbreaking work. If you have a gardening question, send it to

Goutweed This invasive species can play havoc on plants if local gardeners don’t recognize it in their gardens. The solution for removing goutweed is to dig into the garden to ensure all its roots are removed from the soil. Once this happens, the weed can be replaced with desired plants.

Festival Players brings two Canadian stories to stage in one week Highway 63: The Fort Mac Show, Laura Secord among company’s first offerings of the 2013 summer theatre season AdAm BrAmBurger Staff writer

Theatre goers in Prince Edward County will receive a double dose of Canadiana next week. Festival Players will kick off both its summer series and its new Young Company within a matter of days with a pair of fresh, new plays on local stages. On Tuesday at Fields on West Lake, the company will host the touring show Highway 63: The Fort Mac Show, which was originally developed by Architect Theatre and created by the company at Theatre Passe Muraille and Layne Coleman. Charlotte Corbeil-Coleman has the director’s credit. The show is about one of Canada’s most fast-paced, changing towns in Fort McMurray, Alberta, the centre of the Athabasca Oil Sands Project with its gold

rush mentality and allure for those looking to make a quick dollar despite less than ideal conditions. The show’s creators spent time in the Northern Alberta hub talking with both longterm residents and those who came to work in the oil industry, then wrote the play based on their experiences. Festival Players artistic director Sarah Phillips described the show as fluid and funny theatre. Prior to its arrival in the county, the show has been performed to great acclaim in Edmonton, Calgary, Ottawa, Toronto, Vancouver, and across Newfoundland. Highway 63: The Fort Mac Show runs Tuesdays through Fridays until July 19 at 8 pm. with 2 p.m. matinees on July 12 and 17. Tickets are $29.90, though senior, youth, and group discounts are available.

Friday marks the first curtain for the Festival Players Young Company, a group of seven artists aged 14-22 and they will be presenting a less contemporary Canadian tale. Laura Second was written by Sandra Cardinal with music by Chris McKhool and it will be directed by ElizaJane Scott, a regular at the festival with her roles in Amelia, Ship of Fire, and Colours of the Storm. The one-act musical tells of Second’s heroics in the War of 1812, where she trekked through the bush to warn the British of an American attack. An interesting twist about the tale of the pioneering young lady who now has a candy shop named in her honour is that the show includes a singing cow. Laura Secord will open Friday at Macaulay Heritage Park at 11 a.m. and stay there


for three days. Cost is $12 per ticket or a $40 package for a family of four. The play will move throughout the summer to

Ameliasburgh Museum, Fifth Town Artisan Cheese, Sandbanks Provincial Park, and Campbell’s Orchards on Rednersville Road.

To purchase tickets for the shows, visit the Festival Players box office at Books & Company, call 613-476-1991, or visit
