When it comes to cheese the second slice always seems to taste sweeter than the first. That held true over the weekend with the second annual Great Canadian Cheese Festival, which shattered its own attendance record with more than 3,000 visitors. Held at the Crystal Palace in Picton from Friday through Sunday, the festival featured artisan cheeses from across the area, wines, a cheese tour, an artisan cheese food fair and even cheese seminars. Founder Georgs Kolesnikovs said he was thrilled with the turnout over the weekend, despite less than stellar weather. “The Artisan Cheese and Fine Food Fair, that was only a one-day event last year and we had about 600 people there in perfect weather. This year we had 1,700 people,” he said. “On the second day this year we had 1,200 and we had 400 at the gala Satur-

day evening.” He said over the course of the event approximately 3,300 people took part in the festivities. With organizers setting their sights on 3,000 prior to the event, Kolesnikovs said the event was a complete success. “The total attendance last year was 2,200,” he said. “That's a nice increase.” Even though he was pleased with the increased attendance, Kolesnikovs said organizers want to keep the festival at about 4,000 visitors in the future to ensure everyone has a chance to

personally interact with the artisan cheese makers, wineries and other vendors in order to maintain the festivals artisan charm. “We don't want to become a huge event like you see in the big cities where there's 20,000-30,000 people because everything here is artisan whether it's cheese or sausage or wine,” said Kolesnikovs. “With the artisan products the consumers who arrive are hoping that they can have some sort of communication to understand where the cheese comes from.” Kolesnikovs said visitors to the Great Canadian Cheese Festival want a positive experience without long lines, long waits and the with the chance to have some interaction with the people who make the artisan food and drink. He said the vendors also relish the opportunity for this interaction as contacts made over the weekend can translate to a lot of sales down the road.

They had come to Picton Manor in times of joy. Birthdays.Christmases. Anniversaries. But on Thursday afternoon, they sat huddled in a main floor dining room away from their loved one(s) and listened as Ministry of Health and Long-term Care officials confirmed their fears. The long -term care facility their mother, father or aunt or uncle called home was being closed and those receiving care were to be transferred as beds become available in the Quinte area. Worse yet, those staff members the loved ones had come to rely on would no longer be caring for their day-to-day and for some, hour-by-hour needs. It was a tough day for many as the presentation by Ministry spokesperson Mary Diamond left more questions then answers and the man at the crux of the issue, Picton Manor owner Stephen Bordo, was nowhere to be found. However, Diamond's presentation to about 50 resident family members confirmed what the Gazette first reported a week ago — the Ministry of Health and Long-term Care had revoked Bordo's licence to operate Picton Manor early last week, the day-to-day operation of the home was being

handed over to Extendicare Canada and all 57 residents would begin the process to be transferred to other long term care facilities effective immediately. Diamond, a compliance and inspection manger, said the Ministry has had concern about the home for a period of time regarding the electrical system which was reported last week, but there was also concerns regarding structural issues and the homes finances. “Going forward, this home is not viable,” Diamond said. Ministry and Extendicare officials spent the morning on Thursday consulting with electricians and the Electrical Safety Authority “looking at what it is going to take to make this home safe during the transition period.” “The ministry will do whatever it takes to make this building safe and that will include some financial investment to make sure nothing happens to any resident or staff member,” Diamond said, adding the closure of Picton Manor had absolutely nothing to do with the care residents were receiving and had everything to do with the safety of the building that once served as Picton's hospital prior to the building of the current hospital facility.

Diamond Jubilee AdAm BrAmBurger

Staff writer

In a community with the United Empire Loyalist roots Prince Edward County has, it would stand to reason Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee would be a big dea l to many. With that in mind, the Prince Edward Historical Society has decided to give people another weekend to celebrate with formal events ahead June 15-16. Krista Richardson, the manager of the County Archives and a member of the society said the society felt it was important to mark the occasion officially. “Prince Edward County has had long-standing ties with the British Monarch. The American revolution brought many Loyalist families its shores and many of those surnames are still evident today,” she said. “Many people in the community remember the Queen’s Coronation and have followed her throughout her reign. Very shortly, Her Majesty will have surpassed Victoria’s reign.”

Friday, June 15 from 1-4 p.m. and Saturday, June 16 from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. there will be a display of memorabilia at the Wellington and District Community Centre with a great variety of

June 16 & 17

items. “There are over 100 items of a royal nature on display and they include souvenirs given to school children during the Queen’s Coronation, trinkets from the Queen’s reign including her trips to Canada, newspapers, books, various sets of china, pamphlets, pictures, and a copy of the Charter of Rights and

ordinated by Mary Brett and the local monarchy expert Jane Ann Thompson, a Bloomfield resident now residing in Hay Bay. Accompanying the displays, there will be teas organized by the Prince Edward District Women’s Institute, free anniversary cake, and musical performances. At 10 a.m. Saturday, there wil be a formal ceremony with dignitaries present. A traditional English pastime will also take place in the parking lot from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday with a car boot sale organized by Bill McMahon. Sandy Latchford co-ordinated the committee, which also features Steve Ferguson doing promotions, Nancy Wood from the Women’s Institute, County museums head curator Jennifer Lyons, and Kathy Reed, who organized a celebration dance for the Saturday night from 8 p.m. to midnight. The Highline Hall will be decked out for a ‘50s theme celebration featuring Little Bluff and Drew Ackerman. Light refreshments will be served and tickets are $20 per couple. Richardson said the historical society is also grateful for the support of Canada’s federal department of Canadian Heritage for providing support for the two-day celebration.

Trudeau’s Canadian vision focuses on shared values, not differences Liberal MP says change needed in way people look at politics AdAm BrAmBurger

Staff writer

The man many federal Liberal supporters believe could return their party to prominence was in Belleville Tuesday night to rally the Prince Edward-Hastings riding association. The party’s critic for youth, citizenship, and immigration, Justin Trudeau, spoke about a need to change the way political parties campaign and interact with the public in this country. “How we connect to each other is far more important than how we are different from each other. Unfortunately we've been stuck in a political rut over the past years that is focusing on our differences,” Trudeau explained to nearly 250 people at Cafe Sans Souci. He said in recent years, the politics championed by the Conservatives and the NDP would pit regions and subgroups against one another and encourage polarization instead of coming together as one. “We can spend all our time pointing fingers at why the other person is wrong without saying we can be right,” he said. “Cynicism around politics has won out because people found it much easier to vote against things than vote for things.”

moving forwArd Justin Trudeau, the son of former prime minister Pierre Trudeau, says Canadians must look to building relationships and finding value for all members of society, rather than polarization and cynicism.. (Adam Bramburger/Gazette staff)

He said Thomas Mulcair and the NDP are perpetrating a fear of the west, while Stephen Harper sits in the west and appeals to a base that is not interested in Quebec or the east. “You have to wonder who is standing up for Canada,” he said. “It is im-

possible once you get elected that way to turn around and govern for the good of the entire country.” Trudeau said over the last century, Canadians developed a nation, through step-

ping up to fight for values at war — beginning with Vimy Ridge _ for working to ensure guaranteed rights through the Charter of Rights and Freedoms and now, he said, the next cen-

tury should be spent reassuring that everyone has value as a part of that nation. “The next level of that in the 21st Century is recognizing each individual has a fundamental value that cannot be ignored regardless of where you were born, how much money your family had or the opportunities or challenges you faced in your life.” While not getting too much into proposed policy, Trudeau said he is optimistic the Liberal s can work toward that goal because he feels they offer a consistent message across the country and haven’t confined their views to a side on the right or left. He went on the offensive attacking the attack ads and deception he said Harper’s government has used. Trudeau said rather than convincing people to vote for them, they worked to suppress the vote that might go to the other side, empowering extreme bases. “We don’t have those extremes,” he said. One way Trudeau said that could change is by coming up with a preferential ballot where people rank the candidates in their riding in order of preference. That way, he said politicians must work for all residents, rather than core supporters. “What it basically means is political parties have an incentive to reach out to peo-

ple who don't have them as their first choice,” he said, noting no one would be elected without a majority of support. That would change politics and not reward those who polarize the discussion. When asked about engaging youth, a topic he’s been outspoken on in the past, Trudeau indicated their apathy and cynicism isn’t because of their age. Instead, like many, they’re frustrated with the process. “Young people care about this world they live in, the fact they don't care about politics is much more a reflection on politicians themselves than it is on young people,” he said. Trudeau noted there are more social activity clubs in high schools and on postsecondary campuses than ever before and through social media, young people are more connected to the world than they were previously. He said rather than being empowered by that, they often feel overwhelmed and disappointed that they feel they can’t contribute even though politics decides so much about the issues they hold dear. “That apathy doesn’t come from not caring about the world, comes from being frustrated they're not being listened to,” he said. “Stop telling them they are leaders of tomorrow, instead tell them they are leaders today.

locked ballot box once they have voted. Ferguson made it clear the initiative is not affiliated with any group that is for or against the industrial wind developments proposed by Gilead Power or wpd Canada. He said he’s also received positive feedback from MPP Todd Smith and councillor Barb Proctor regarding the poll. Ferguson said he’s hopeful the information will be a useful gauge of how a community directly impacted by the proposed development reacts toward it. “Regardless whether your loyalties are pro or anti (industrial wind turbines), this vote should provide a clear opinion as to how South Marysburgh property owners view the wpd and Gilead projects,� he said. “And as ‘ground zero’ for industrial wind projects in Prince Edward County, it is my opinion that our residents’ views should be clearly expressed and then communicated.� Ferguson said residents will receive more information in the July edition of the Mirror as well as in supplementary flyers and online at southmarsyburghmirror.com. The community is waiting to hear news from the province on whether Gilead’s proposal receives approval, while wpd Canada is working through the public consultation portion of the approvals process.’

Picton Gazette 80 years ago — 1932

■ All signs pointed to a prosperous tourism season in the county as the publicity committee noted it was receiving more than a dozen requests for accommodation information per day. Many local destinations were already reporting steady traffic. ■ One county farmer, Earl Bonter, reported having potatoes in bloom. The timing of the blooms was unusually early for a potato crop within this region. ■ Donald Baxter received the nod as the new president of the Bloomfield Young People’s League. He was elected during a meeting attended by 40 people. ■ Though the registration of passenger cars in Ontario decreased by close to 35,000 (or eight per cent)(the consumption of gasoline increased by about six per cent, or six million gallons.

50 years ago — 1962

■ Canada’s postmaster general William Hamilton made a campaign stop in Picton, praising his Progressive Conservatives for erasing a $713 million Liberal trade deficit with a surplus of $179 million. Hamilton said by pegging the Canadian dollar, the government could help businesses including those in the county relying on visiting tourists. ■ More than 150 Ameliasburgh Township ratepayers heckled council with cries of “dictators,” and “ridiculous” at a public meeting to discuss the proposed official plan. The notion that lot sizes were set at two acres and the placement of industrial zones in the township were two major points of contention. ■ Due to complaints received about outboard racing on Sunday, contrary to a town bylaw, the chief of police told the Picton Outboard Club to cancel its races that week, disappointing spectators.

30 years ago — 1982

■ The C.M.L. Snider school community came together to recognize Frank Haight on his retirement after 50 years of driving a school bus without a single accident. The 79-year-old was believed to have the longest accident-free record of driving school buses in Ontario. ■ Nearly 100 people gathered in front of the Royal Hotel to see a street fight after closing time that week. When police intervened an officer was struck and two nearby taxis were damaged in the melee. ■ The province upheld an Ontario Municipal Board decision to not allow Ameliasburgh council to replace private wells with a $370,000 waterworks system.

■ Council’s planning committee disregarded the advice of the County’s own planning staff in granting the owners of Bergeron Exotic Animal Sanctuary more time to address security and insurance concerns connected to an official plan amendment on the zoning of their property. The move would require site planning to be completed for consideration by Oct. 1. ■ PECI students Niko de Jonge, Sarah de Jonge, David Jessop, and Lindsay Stevenson earned OSSTF awards for their combination of citizenship skills, high academic achievement, and participation in extra-curricular activities. ■ Kingston’s CKWS TV and Loyalist College partnered to create a show featuring food and recipes from the county.

Natural world promotes good health, longevity

I seldom use insect repellent on any guided hikes that I lead as I find the fog of toxins enveloping me more annoying than the insects they are designed to repel. On the rare occasions that I have used them, it was an experimental natural product that was given to me to test – actually an entire case of it. The new product was a liquid mixture of catnip and evening primrose and while it repelled every flying insect within a wide radius, it also repelled the very people I was leading, but seemed to attract a multitude of cats whenever we passed a house. The product came to mind just a few days ago when I assisted with a guided hike on a remote property several kilometres north of Tamworth. The deer flies were relentless and I was almost hoping that black flies might take over. One young lad expressed limited interest in the great crested flycatcher I was attempting to point out toward the end of our four-hour hike, and made a beeline for the parked cars, arms flailing. The natural product would have worked wonders on this wild piece of property as we descended into swampy areas, then emerged again onto ridges of granite rock where blueberries, pale corydalis and a few sprigs of columbine struggled against oppressive heat and dry conditions. As extensive patches of tinder dry reindeer lichen crunched beneath our feet, we wondered about their ability to survive in such arid conditions. Since these lichens are able to take up moisture from the air, the granite rock upon which they grew was not as important a source of moisture as it was to vascular plants that grew nearby. They colonize and become a dominant floral

element on soils too shallow or sterile to support higher plants, provided that humidity is sufficiently high for lichen growth and temperature is sufficiently low to inhibit competitors. But it cannot survive without that mutualistic combination of fungi and algae; a symbiotic relationship in which both share in the benefits of association. The mycobiont fungus provides moisture and minerals and the photobiont alga provides photosynthetic nutrition. Amazing stuff when you stop and think about it for a while. In the cool, deciduous forest within hearing distance of the Salmon River rapids, a chorus of wood thrushes, veeries, vireos, orioles and rosebreasted grosbeaks spoke of much cooler climes, accented by a backdrop of ovenbirds, chestnut-sided warblers and the occasional scarlet tanager with its hoarse robin-like calls. This was wild north country at its best and it always so encouraging when large properties like this are purchased for no other reason except to keep it wild and undeveloped. We were actually on two such properties that lay side by side. We have seen bears only once

on these properties, but evidence of them was everywhere on this walk, from overturned rocks to numerous soft scats. One was a curious mixture of what appeared to be a consumed diaper, of all things, excreted in a 10-inch, ropy, twisted length of rejected material, apparently without benefit of any drug store purgatives. A conducted seven km interpretive hike the following day along a stretch of Prince Edward County’s Millennium Trail in the Wellington area between Greer Road and Conley Road was more routine. Our little group of 21 participants was kept busy as my co-leader and I pointed out trail side wildflowers and birds singing from nearby agricultural fields. Biting insects were kept at bay by a gentle breeze and wispy clouds kept temperatures pleasant. From one cultivated field, a vesper sparrow sang his jumble of notes, fittingly described by Peterson as “more throaty than a song sparrow” from a fencerow. Participants were encouraged to keep moving as a kettle of a dozen or more turkey vultures circled menacingly above our heads, cleverly riding the thermals with nary a wing beat. We need more trails and wild places to walk, but it is a tough sell to those who suffer from a new malady known as nature deficit disorder. We desperately need to get away from electronic devices, backyard barbecues, and televisions, not permanently, but just for a little while (I cancelled my subscription to Bell TV some time ago). We need to reacquaint ourselves with the natural world around us as we are losing it so quickly. I find it encouraging to see such a high percentage of seniors who have subscribed to the guided hike program that I offer each year, for it speaks

loudly about our yearning to acquaint ourselves with the natural world around us, and to keep us active. Many seniors are seasoned walkers. I know of one 70+ year old who jogs eight km every day. One person in our program is well past his mideighties and likely shakes his head in dismay at able bodied souls who park illegally in handicapped zones and sprint into the grocery store. Several times I have had to speak to this person to slow his pace a bit as some of the younger ones are unable to keep up. Another 86 year old on our Millennium Trail hike a few days ago completed the seven km hike without even breaking a sweat and he was most always right on my heels. These folks will live forever, simply because they remain active. An abundance of hiking trails and natural areas to explore will keep us in shape and feeling healthy. It will make us immune to the occasional prickly ash scratch, or the unexpected appearance of a boggy section along a trail, or the sudden arrival of a rain storm, or the heart stopping appearance of a black bear as has happened to us on occasion. And few of us are truly bothered with deer flies or mosquitoes as we are immersed at the moment in everything else that’s around us. The red bumps on our necks and arms and legs will disappear soon enough, but the memory of our experiences will linger with us for some time.

Trudeau’s speech applies to McGuinty, not just to Harper

WHILE speaking in Belleville Tuesday, Justin Trudeau used the Ontario Liberal Party’s rise to power as an example that a political entity which was once viewed as “out of touch” could move forward with a positive, uniting message to become elected and govern presumably for the good of all. It was a funny juxtaposition to hear him speaking about eliminating cynicism in government and to govern to collective values, then bring up Dalton McGuinty’s crew as a stellar example of that. From what we remember in the last provincial election, Ontario’s differences couldn’t be more clear — any child could easily recognize on a map that there was a lot of red in urban areas, blue stretching across rural Ontario, and some orange peeking through across the north. It seems this province is quite polarized on its own regardless if the same party still appears to be in power. Trudeau spoke about the federal Liberal party being one that can spread the same message in each corner of the country and one which isn’t quick to jump to sides. One might wonder about the provincial party he was so quick to applaud, given that it backed off on its support of off-shore turbines and even cancelled gas-powered energy plants already in progress when it there was pressure, but seemingly less furor in urban areas than the Liberals are hearing in the county and elsewhere, and that they should have heard loud and clear last election. He told federal Liberal riding association members and other interested members of the general public that many people are cynical because they feel disenfranchised and frustrated that the political process doesn’t seem to include them. One need not look farther than Milford last Saturday to see that is true of rural Ontarians, just as it is true of the Quebeckers who feel demarginalized over tuition by that Liberal government. They don’t want to protest and demonstrate, but feel they have no other alternative to have their voices heard. Saturday they came out in numbers — yes, more than 400 people did roll through the Milford fairgrounds — to try to make their voices heard, to try to find someone who would listen. Simply, to have studies and to have some sort of municipal control about a decision that will affect both their health and their own financial well-being. They deserve a voice too. Federal or provincial, people are sick of hearing party lines and they’re disappointed that the current electoral system doesn’t appear to give an equitable voice for all. Trudeau’s point was clearly illustrated very close to home, it just happened to be illustrated by a party draped in the same colour. Perhaps some people of influence will have heard his message to Ottawa for what he actually said — not framed in their political red, orange, blue, or green and are willing to tell Queen’s Park that rural Ontarians also want a say in their own future.

Artist shares portrait of garlic pioneer with library patrons

On May 24, local artist Milé Murtanovski donated a painting of Ted Maczka (The Fish Lake garlic man) to the Prince Edward County Library. The portrait, painted in 2011, was part of the artist’s Field to Canvas series of 12 paintings of farmers from Prince Edward County. These were originally exhibited at Angeline’s Restaurant in Bloomfield. “Donating the painting to the library and having it on display for the public in perpetuity seemed like a great way to honour Ted as a significant contributor to the area’s agricultural history,” said Murtanovski. The portrait’s subject is near legend not only in Prince Edward County but also across Canada and in the United States for both his knowledge of garlic and his creative promotional style. Among his many accolades as the garlic king, Ted Maczka has travelled and taken part in countless exhibitions and garlic festivals over the years, including many wins at the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair. The first time he attended the fair, simply to promote and educate people about garlic with his displays and samples, a category for garlic did not even exist. The following year a category was established and the garlic man himself put up the original $50 top prize. A Polish survivor of a slave labour camp in Siberia from 1940 to 1942, Maczka has lived a difficult life, but also one of significant achievements and passion, especially when he discovered his love of garlic. Immigrating to Canada in 1953, he began working as a machine-tool operator for a firm that built parts for the Avro Arrow. When the Avro project died, the company for which he worked closed its doors. The enterprising Maczka was undeterred, however, moving to food importing and eventually to his quest to bring garlic growing to the Canadian market. Today, his research and knowledge of garlic are unsurpassed, and his “garlicmobiles” - vehicles he has driven over the years bedecked with giant garlic bulbs - and his many garlic festooned caps are fixtures in Prince Edward County. They bring smiles to those he meets, too. “It’s just for fun,” says the enthusiastic octogenarian. “I’m spreading the garlic gospel.” It is this passion for farming the pungent bulb and his contribution to the County’s

agricultural history that made Maczka a natural choice of subject for Milé Murtanovski’s series. “Out of all the farmer paintings, I think this one is my favourite,” says the artist. “He’s had such an interesting life – a life that at times was quite difficult – and I think you can see some of that pain in his eyes.” Murtanovski, who has been painting for more than 20 years, has captured his subject with a remarkable perception that only talent and experience could impart. An artist with numerous solo and group exhibitions to his credit, his works are held by collectors here in Canada as well as in the United States, the United Kingdom and in Germany. In 2010, Murtanovski moved from Toronto to Prince Edward County, where he and his wife, puppeteer and playwright Krista Dalby, purchased a 150-year old farmhouse and launched Small Pond Arts. An artist residency, Small Pond Arts also features an art gallery for Murtanovski’s work. In addition to fine art, the artist does commercial work, including architectural renderings, theatre posters and illustrations. He is also an accomplished stilt walker and will be teaching that unusual skill at the library this July as part of the children’s programs offered. “It is an honour for the library to receive this portrait of Mr. Maczka painted by such a talented local artist,” says Library CEO Barbara Sweet. “Mr. Maczka has made important contributions in agriculture and to life in Prince Edward County, and it is fitting that the public can now come and enjoy this portrait at the library.” Plans are to have the painting displayed on a rotating basis at each of the library’s six branches.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Quebeckers right to protest erosion of democracy

When I think about the noxious goings-on at every level of government since our last municipal, provincial, and federal elections, I am convinced we are witnessing a mugging in this country. Democracy is being assaulted and our politicians are responsible. And, whether we admit it openly or not, all of us know it! So, I hope we are becoming disillusioned by the political scandals and abuses of power and frustrated by politicians who haven’t a clue what we are thinking and feeling. I hope we are becoming outraged at being forced to become politically cynical and angered by the fact our elected officials either do not know or do not give a damn

that we are troubled by this enforced cynicism. I hope we are becoming disgusted with legislators who aren’t up to dealing with our economic difficulties or who do not understand our desire to sustain the social system we treasure. I hope we are becoming infuriated by the elected who believe that if they ignore a problem it will vanish and, then, equally infuriated by the arrogance and self-righteousness they exhibit when ignoring does not have the desired effect and they turn to hard-line, punishment-oriented political tactics to have their way. Plainly, I hope we are running out of patience with politicians who insist on bru-

talizing our democratic ideals and stripping them away because democracy does not suit them these days...because it’s inconvenient. Taken together, our politicians have created a wholly soulless system that seems to reward the worst in us, valuing prevarication, underhandedness, miserliness, illpreparation, incompetence, self-interest, and elitism. Yet everywhere we seem to blithely accept this situation...except in Quebec. There, students, angry about tuition fees, took to the streets and screamed, “We’re mad as hell and we’re not going to take it anymore!” They, and their evergrowing number of nonstudent allies, have brought

their anti-democratic government (see Bill 78!) to a standstill. This will force an election. When this happens, and if there is any justice in this world, the current Quebec government will be obliterated. In Quebec, it’s not simply about tuition fees anymore. It’s about the shape of the future and the ascendant ideology. If only this level of awareness and commitment were alive in Ontario and at the national level! These Quebeckers are fed-up people who seem to sense that if we don’t start using our democracy — what’s left of it—we are going to lose it. Brian Flack Athol

Council should deal with wind developers for revenue

The property tax bill arrived today and it is bigger than ever. Prince Edward County council agonizes over the budget but is unable to get it under control. Why is it then that council votes down any motion to negotiate with the two wind companies for amenities that would help our community keep property taxes down? Under the Green Energy Act there is no requirement for a wind company to pay anything to a municipality yet Wolfe Island negotiated an amenities agreement with TransAlta Corporation that

provides the Township of Frontenac Islands with $645,000 per year in revenue. “Add in royalties to landowners, tax payments and operating and maintenance expenses, and the ongoing local benefits add up to more than $3 million a year.”(http://www.canwea.ca) “Energy and Environmental Management Magazine” in the U.K. quotes a report from the Joseph Rowntree Trust titled “Wind Energy Justice For Disadvantaged Communities”. The report says govern-

ment should “consider ways in which communities can benefit from low carbon energy….it is not simply about large companies giving a share of their profits to local communities when they put a wind farm in the neighbourhood….it should be about bolstering local resilience in the face of difficult economic conditions and rising energy prices, which can have spin-off benefits in terms of empowering local facilities and promoting community spirit….” The Rowntree Report concludes by saying “The

prize is a significant one:a low-carbon energy revolution that not only addresses global obligations to future generations, but which fosters long-term resilience in the communities that live alongside the infrastructure.” Council, by not entering into negotiations with the wind companies, is a classic case of the ostrich burying its head in the sand. Council’s position is totally irresponsible to county taxpayers. Deborah Hudson Black Creek

scrapes. Thanks to the volunteers who ran alongside the children, pointed them in the right direction, threw noodles in the pool, tied shoes, buckledhelmets, encouraged the discouraged, flipped burgers, lined nervous kids up, and did all of this with great cheer. Our children had a won-

derful time and we are reminded of the tireless efforts of the volunteers in the community that make it such a wonderful place to live. For those I have forgotten or missed — many thanks. Josh Colby Milford

At times, the new Recreation Outreach Centre (ROC) staffers stationed at the County Youth Park won’t look like they’re working. That’s not a slag, but rather a compliment for Katy McIntyre and Cheyenne Crouch.who will have been hired as program co-ordinator and youth worker respectively. McIntyre, a Carleton University alumnus who has served as the communications co-ordinator for the Prince Edward County Arts Council decided to join the ROC full time after helping co-ordinate its Girls ROCKIT healthy living program in the schools. She said joining the youth centre follows with some of her favourite activities throughout her life. “I’ve always been involved with kids, it’s one of my greatest passions,” she said. “I believe in youth empowerment and want to bring it to the county any way I can.” One of McIntyre’s first duties as an administrator is to co-ordinate a new artsspecific summer camp to be staged right at the youth park. McIntyre said through the camp, her hope is to teach the young people new and different arts skills to complement the ones they’ve already developed. Also, the camp aims to keep the young people active, just as the ROC’s summer sports and arts camp — which will still be run at the ROC’s headquarters up on the heights — does. “We're always looking to keep kids physically active and teach them new skills,” she said. “We’re doing it outside where kids should be.” That camp will be held July 9-13 for youth aged 7-13 and it will cost $60 for the week. McIntyre is also working on a project to link the ROC with the new Bloomfield Centre For Creativity and to help develop a satellite program for the fall entitled Triple Power, which incorporates cooking and healthy food choices for both young girls and boys. Crouch was hired through a partnership with the County to run the canteen at the youth park and be a positive presence for families and young people to learn from while attending. She’s attending post-secondary school for correc-

tions and said she has a particular interest in helping atrisk young people. When Crouch saw the posting, she felt it was a no-brainer to apply. “I’ve lived here forever and it’s nice to have a job supporting the community I grew up in,” she said. “I just moved home and applied.” Crouch said she knew of the ROC for years as a place to play basketball and hang out, but she was excited to learn about all the programs it now offers. She said her hope is to add to that by advising people at the youth park to make healthy food choices and to promote respect, and working together while discouraging bullying of any kind. Being at the skate park is no big stretch for her either. “I remember the skate park by the fire hall and later behind the arena. My brother was an avid skateboarder and I spent a fair amount of time there, I loved it,” she said. According to the ROC’s executive director Darlene Thompson, Crouch is replac-

ing two staff members last year as the decision was made this year to try to have one constant person on site to promote recognition and trust. Crouch’s hours will be 18 p.m. Wednesday to Sunday from May through to September. Thompson added that McIntyre’s position is a new one which helps the ROC achieve its objective to have more of a presence for all the youth of the county. “Katy will certainly help us network with other groups serving the youth,” she said, adding she’s happy the centre will be able to fulfill its goal of offering satellite programs throughout the county. Once again this year, the ROC is gearing up for a school’s out party at the County Youth Park on June 28. Last year, more than 200 students attended the event. This year’s party promises plenty of music, games, skateboard and bike demonstrations led by youth park founder Andrew MacKay, and more.

Glenwood revives decoration day Old custom to bring awareness, traffic into cemetery Chad IBBOTsOn STAff wRITeR

As a part of their efforts to bring more people into Glenwood to appreciate the cemetery, the Glenwood cemetery board has reintroduced a old tradition — decoration day. Held on Sunday from 12-4 in the Glenwood Cemetery Chapel, the event offered visitors the to visit the graves of loved ones and purchase various decorations to leave behind. The day was offered also as a chance to renew contacts with family and place flowers. Music by guitarist Ken Hudson permeated the chapel and soloist Lorain Sine also performed after a memorial service from Rev. Audrey Whitney. Event co-ordinator Barbara Proctor said the last decoration day at Glenwood Cemetery was all the way back in 1910. She said it was about time to have an-

are here. We feel decoration day is a good way to do that,� she said. “Many cemeteries are doing this now. This is our first one, but we're hoping the event will catch on and we'll do it on an annual basis.� It was a quiet, overcast day at Glenwood, but several families — one from as far away as Ohio — took the opportunity to visit their loved ones. Proctor said the board also wants to brighten the image of the cemetery. “Death is such a cold thought and we'd like to bring more warmth and memory. In order to do that I think we have to create a ambiance here that you can rejoice in the memories of the people who are buried here,� she said. “It's not a scary place, cemeteries are not scary places. When I'm laid to rest I'm hoping people will come here and be happy and think of those happy memories.� The day also brought in much needed funds for the cemetery. Visitors could purchase flowers, stones and other memorial items to lay at the final resting place of loved ones. Proctor said it costs a lot of money to maintain the sites, but the board didn't have a fundraising goal in mind with decoration day. “The board's mandate is to keep this cemetery open and active — we don't want it to become a pioneer cemetery some day,� she said. “It's just the board's hope that we can keep people coming and creating awareness.�

Wake said the revived Athol recreation committee is planning some big events this year with the revived strawberry social coming up on Wednesday, June 27. On Saturday, July 28 the group will also hold a Cherry Jubilee in Cherry Valley. It will mark Athol's 200th anniversary and will include live music, wood-fired pizza, a scavenger hunt, dance, and family friendly games.

No longer will a goal necessitate a lengthy retrieval. Last week the Athol recreation committee donated enough money to replace Athol-South Marysburgh Public School's aging, holefilled soccer nets. Recreation committee member Annette Brummel was the first to suggest the committee donate the money needed for the nets — just short of $240 — to the school after hearing the nets were badly in need of replacing. The nets are used virtually every day by students, who organize soccer games at both recess and lunch breaks, but the current nets are in tatters. The committee unanimously voted to pay for new nets and last week committee chair Kato Wake and secretary and treasurer Janet Davies presented the cheque to Athol-South Marysburgh principal Marg Thompson and a group of eager soccer players. “Part of the mandate of Athol recreation is to help with community support

and any play and leisure — we thought this was fantastic,” said Wake. “The group unanimously agreed to it and we're really excited to do it.” The Athol recreation committee had folded a few years ago, but started again in 2010 with new volunteers — a healthy mix of longtime county natives and enthusiastic new residents. The new group has started such new programs as $5 yoga classes on Tuesday nights and Thursday mornings at Athol

Town Hall. The group also plans to partner with other local groups to share ideas and resources. Wake said last week's donation would cover the entire cost of new nets and said the kids will most certainly appreciate them.

“I can't reiterate enough this has nothing to do with care, the residents in this home are very well cared for, there is wonderful, dedicated staff caring for the residents and that is evident when I go around to each room. That care will continue to be provided,” she said. While the home's electrical system will be brought up to code, residents will begin the process of moving to other facilities through the processes administered by the Community Care Access Centre.

That process includes the resident and/or their family being notified of a bed opening, having 24 hours to make their decision and allowing them up to five days to relocate to the new facility. Residents will not be forced to move from the home until a bed in the facility of their choosing becomes available. It's unknown as to exactly how long the process of clearing Picton Manor will take, but it's believed up to 10 of the 57 residents currently living there are interim residents who are awaiting accommodation elsewhere.

would be meeting with every resident and/or their families to complete an application. With Picton Manor closing, all residents would be given a crisis designation, meaning they would have priority status due to the existing situation, allowing them to move to the head of the queue for all long term care facilities in the Southeast area which spans from Cobourg to Smiths Falls and as far north as Bancroft. “Our goal is to expedite the process as quickly as we can while adhering to the guidelines and processes laid out by the Ministry of Health and Long-term care,” Tracze said.

MANOR, from page 1

The news of Picton Manor closing is of no great shock to most, however, the timing of the closure and the way it's about to be shuttered is. As a Class D, 78-bed facility, operator Stephen Bordo was given a short term licence in 2010 by the Ministry of Heath and Long -term Care with the belief among some residents and staff a new long term care facility would be built in Belleville to essentially replace the aged home for the aged.

This was supposed to take place by 2014 as the short term licence only had a four year life expectancy. A presentation to resident's family members by Mary Diamond, a compliance and inspection manager with the Ministry of Health and Long-term Care along with Southeast Local Health Integration Network (SE LHIN) officials provided some insight into what went wrong at Picton Manor. Diamond said that, as a Class D Facility, Picton Manor didn't meet the 1972 provincial standards as a long term care facility but was the owner was provided an amnesty to bring the home up to code.

Most residents and staff confronted Ministry and SE LHIN officials Thursday about the supposed plan that would've seen a new facility built in Belleville that would take the place of Picton Manor. Plans they believed were approved by the Ministry and the SE LHIN. “We chose Picton Manor four years ago with the understanding that there was going to be a new building in Belleville. What happened to that plan?” wondered one resident's family member. “There was no final plan, there was attempts at plans, but there was no approved plan,” Diamond said. “There were a number of issues the owner had in achieving a plan that met with the standards of the ministry,” Larry Hofmeister of the SE LHIN explained further. “Attempts were made since June of last year but there were issues on design and financing and they were rejected. As I understand it, the ministry has closed the door on future discussions of that redevelopment (in Belleville). The timeline was set out in 2010 when the ministry issued the temporary licence, they gave extensions but finally had to stop the process.” As for the 90 staff members that are serving the needs of the 57 residents currently housed at the facility, their immediate employment future is in the hands of Extendicare Canada, the large scale multi-national long term care company that owns and operates facilities all over North America. Extendicare has been asked to manage the ramp down of Picton Manor on behalf of the Ministry and company spokesperson Sharon Gilmour said the Extendicare has had meetings with the unions representing the workers at Picton Manor. “We have met with all labour relations boards and unions representing staff members and have indicated our intention to honour all aspects of the collective agreement in place including provisions for severance and unused vacation time,” Gilmour said. “It will be a difficult transition for staff, many have been here for 20plus years and we will try to assist them in anyway we can.” Still others wondered about the operation of the home under Assured Care Consulting who managed the Picton Mano and SeniorCare, Bordo's company that also owns and operates Applefest Lodge in Brighton and Bracebridge Villa in Muskoka, both retirement residences. “There were rumours of unpaid phone and hydro bills,” one family member queried. “If we as family members are still paying, where has that money gone?” Diamond stopped short of providing detail, only to state there were definite financial issues with the operation of the home prior to the revoking of the licence. “It seems unfair that as a landlord, (Bordo) is just walking away, he is going to have this property back and could set up a retirement residence after everyone has been moved out,” added another family member.

Escorted transportation can maximize independence

The most recent edition of the Canadian Automobile Association booklet “Driving Costs 2012” shows that the overall average cost of owning and operating a passenger vehicle is between $6439.72 and $8792.32 per year, based on 18,000 km of driving. Go to the web site shown below to get all the information. The range of costs is because of the size of vehicle. This means that if you spend less than $169.08 per week ($24.08/day) on either a taxi or paying the fees for a volunteer driving program, you’re spending less than what you would to own and operate your own car. (www.caa.ca/drivingcosts )Community Care offers the escorted transportation program. This program can maximize your independence with affordable rates, punctuality, personalized service and friendly drivers. Whether you need to travel locally or out of town, this service will get you where you need to go for both medical appointments and essential shopping. The volunteer waits for you while you are in the appointment. Notice of 2-3 days in advance is necessary, same day trips are not available as we need time to schedule the volunteer. The client pays a fee based on .40/km for this program. One of Community Care’s clients has this to say about selling her car and using the Escorted Transportation Program. “Lots of seniors should not be driving and should consider giving up their car. You end up with your own private chauffeur, they carry your groceries and hold the door! You don’t have to worry about taking your car to the garage or what that noise means. Sometimes you have to wait but that’s the only downside. It’s also better for the environment not to own a car.” When asked if she experienced a loss of independence when she sold her car this is what she had to say “in a sense there’s a loss of independence but now I

meet people I’d never have met. I’m free of the responsibility of the car. I am released from that and I’m helping those who operate taxis to stay in business. When I call Community Care for a driver I know that their volunteers want to do this. Yes, there’s some loss of independence but you gain much in relationships and money in my pocket. And, I knew I needed to stop driving and I would feel awful if I had an accident and killed someone.” This woman in her 70s wants other seniors to give up driving if they have become unsafe drivers on the road. She says “People

have a mind block about taking a taxi or calling Community Care for a volunteer. I don’t have to drive in bad weather. It’s not my worry now. I’m the one that calls the taxi, I’m the one that decides whether to shop today. I’m still independent.” If you want to have a confidential conversation with a Community Care coordinator about the escorted transportation program, please call the office at 613476-7493. Our staff make home visits or you can make an appointment to come into the office. The Prince Edward County Specialized Transit service is also available for seniors. Call 1-866-9929640 for fares, schedules and bookings or visit www.pecounty.on.ca for more information. For more information on seniors and driving go to www.mto.gov.on.ca If you are interested in becoming a volunteer driver for Community Care please stop in the office and pick up an application form.

Going back to where it all started at the picturesque Waupoos Estates

SiPPin’ in the county JOE HACHE

approached the project slowly and carefully, starting with just half an acre of grapevines in 1993. However, from 1995 onwards they quickly added on to their acreage, planting more vines every year. Today their vineyards comprise almost 20 acres. They grow four red grape varieties and eight white. Neuser considers himself and Kaimins pioneers, saying “Our winery was an experimental block. We did-

n't know what would work.” He explains that they traveled extensively, having “visited every wine region on the planet. We knew we wanted a boutique winery." Among the scores of challenges they faced, according to Neuser, was attaining a retail license. It was a process that would end up taking two-and-a-half years to complete. "We had to lobby very hard," he says. In the end, their hard work and perseverance paid off: on June 15,2001, Waupoos Estates opened for business. Neuser is deservedly proud of their accomplishments, "in record time we became a Designated Viticultural Area (DVA). In 10 years we've put the county on the world map — it's been quite a journey." Amy Dickinson is the winemaker at Waupoos Estate Winery today. She was born and raised in Barrie and studied literature abroad in England and general arts in Montreal. Winemaking became more of an interest to her and it then blossomed into a passion. Dickinson studied at Niagara College in their two

year winery and viticulture program followed by the one year Wine Business Management program. She has worked for the past twoand-a-half years at Reif Estate Winery in Niagaraon-the-lake in retail and wine production. She says that "Winemaking is one of those unique practices that harmonizes science and nature. Every year is different. Once the grapes have been harvested the creative possibilities become infinite. Wines can be similar but they will never be the same. From the vineyard to the bottle each step is as exciting as the last." Scott Royce heads the culinary team at the Gazebo Restaurant at Waupoos Winery. A graduate of culinary arts at George Brown College, Scott furthered his food knowledge working in Toronto at the esteemed Auberge du Pommier. In the spring of 2010, he took on the position as head chef at Waupoos Winery. Another innovative idea at Waupoos are the winemaker dinners. Royce and Dickinson work together to pair award winning wines with a five course meal

After spending the past few weeks discussing various wineries around the county, I decided to return to the original, the first winery to open in the county; Waupoos Estate Winery. We've had many tastings at Waupoos over the past few years. When friends visit, this winery is definitely on our list. We've tasted wines in their upstairs tasting room, the downstairs tasting room and of course down on the dock. Waupoos Estate Winery is situated right on Lake Ontario and offers spectacular views from almost any location at the winery. The modern pioneers of Prince Edward County wine were Ed Neuser and Rita Kaimins. Neuser purchased the 100-acre farm centuryold house in 1983 and chuckles when he recalls the night that he and Kaimins decided to try planting grapes. "It was after a couple glasses of wine, or maybe it was a couple of bottles," he jokes. "Everybody thought we were off our rockers — we had no experience growing grapes or making wines." In Neuser’s mind the pair

GO EASY ON YOUR SEPTIC SYSTEM

In homes with garbage disposals, jetted (whirlpool) baths and/or water softeners that also have a septic or other private on-site sewage disposal systems, special care must be taken to prevent overburdening the system. Garbage disposals: A garbage disposal can be a nice feature in any kitchen, but regular use can more than double the amount of harmful grease and solids that what would typically flow into a septic system. While the disposal grinds kitchen scraps into small pieces, they can still contribute to the buildup of scum and sludge in the tank. Waste ma-

terials in a septic tank are normally broken down by bacterial action, but most of the solids must eventually be pumped out of the tank. The extra solid matter introduced into the tank when using a garbage disposal, means the tank must be pumped more frequently to avoid problems. To help compensate for the presence of a garbage disposal, most codes specify an increase in the minimum septic tank size. But even with a larger tank, limiting the use of the disposal is a wise practice. Jetted baths: Another nice addition to any house is a jetted bath. Whether used for relax-

ation or therapy, the soothing, swirling waters of a jetted bath are welcomed by homeowners.

Unfortunately, the water that drains from a large bath can overburden your septic system.

hundreds of gallons of water into a septic system all at once. This can agitate the solids, which along with excess water flow into the drainfield. In addition the regular backwashing required to regenerate the softener flushes salts into the septic system. There is also some concern that the salt solution used in the treatment process can affect the normal breakdown of solids in the septic tank or reduce the absorption rate of the soil in the drainfield. A plumbing professional may be able to provide alternatives to help limit the discharge of the extra water and salts into your septic.

Emptying large amounts of water from a draining bath can stir the solids in the tank, carrying them along with the water into the drainfield, saturating and eventually clogging the soil in the drainfield. To minimize problems, drain the bath slowly. Water Softeners: Unlike garbage disposals and jetted baths, water softeners are a necessity in some homes to correct the presence of “hard” water (with a high mineral content) that can clog lines in appliances and old piping and cause other problems. But water treatment systems such as water softeners can pump

Hot Titans lefty shuts Panthers down in Bay of Quinte final Dynamic PECI offence held to just four hits as St. Theresa captures title AdAm BRAmBuRgER Staff writer

After an explosive regular season, the PECI Panthers bats finally went south last Thursday and as a result, the Bay of Quinte championship headed north with the St. Theresa Titans. On just one day's rest, Titans southpaw Blaine Farrell threw a complete seven-inning game in a 4-0 win. He gave up just four hits on a 99-pitch performance that had the Panthers shaking their heads. "We came across a hot pitcher and he got the best of us, those things happen," said Panthers coach Matt Ronan. "He was just electric. There's nothing more you can say." With Matt Gallo on the hill, the Panthers hung right with the Titans through four innings at Wellington's Field of Dreams, then one bad inning was the turning point. St. Theresa leadoff hitter Trevor Walsh and third batter Kyle Coolen reached base on free passes, the result of a walk and a hit batsmen.then it appeared the Titans' Corey Farrell would look to sacrifice in the first run of the game. Right fielder Pat McPherson couldn't hang onto his fly ball, however as both runners scored. Farrell

went to third base and scored on a sacrifice by Jason Young before the Panthers could get out of the inning. "Probably a couple of their errors helped us out a bit," said Blaine Farrell. "We took advantage of that and did what we needed to do." Ronan downplayed that inning, noting "it could have been more costly if we had been more in the game, but we couldn't get the bats going." That said, Gallo indicated he noticed the Panthers hung their heads a bit after that spell and never could get back on track. Following one Titan run in the top of the inning, PECI managed two base runners in the bottom of the seventh inning, but could not drive them in.

As they set out for North Bay yesterday morning, the PECI Panthers knew they'd have some ground to make up in a hurry at the OFSAA 'AA' senior boys soccer championships. The Panthers have the distinct disadvantage of playing their season in the fall, while many of their competitors haven't stepped off the field in league play. They also will go to the provincial tournament following some sporadic practice attendance due to other sports and adjusting to new coaches as Paul Pickard and Teddy Lupili step in for the departed Dave Mather. Still, there's not much shaking the Panthers coming off a fifth-place finish in the same event in Windsor a year ago. They've been there before and feel their experience will pay off. "We're feeling very confident," said leader Damien Wadforth. "We still play the same way. We've played together for years, been coached the same, and have a lot of chemistry." And while it may have been frustrating to have practices where only four or five players took the field this spring, Panthers veteran Tyler Philip said most of the players were staying in shape through baseball or track and field with some players even playing higher level soccer out of town. He said the team has had a few practices to work hard and jell. "Fortunately, a lot of the other seasons are now finished, so we're getting there with a lot of hard work. Nobody is having to get back in shape for the season." The Panthers did manage to have one friendly game against a men's team coached by Scott Wentworth, but going into OFSAA they'll be relying on what they know. Philip said one of the things they may also try to do is step up their communication as Mather was always a vocal coach, letting his team know where they want need to be. They say they have found confidence, also, in Pickard, the school's vice-principal and a veteran high school soccer coach and Lupili, who actually coached against them earlier this year with Centennial. According to Pickard, Lupili actually was a professional soccer player in Tanzania before emigrating

to Canada to live with his wife who was teaching at the Belleville school. "That was the first call I made," said Pickard. "He loves soccer, just loves coming to play soccer and teach soccer. He'd seen our team play and he wanted to help. He feels they have a huge level of skill." Wadforth agreed, stating "He's taught us a lot. He sees things we don't see." The coaches' challenge with the Panthers was to bring out those evident skills while not exposing their lack of game play or game stamina recently. Pickard said the team has been working on tightening its game up to avoid breakdowns or giveaways. "We're really focusing on a smaller type of game, short passes and controlling the ball," he said. "Traditional soccer has been run-and-gun, but we'll be more conservative and look for our opportunities to turn it loose."

Norton moving to provincials with three medals at regionals Grade 9 only PECI competitor to qualify for OFSAA after winning silver in triple jump, bronze in long jump, 100 m Nicholls thinks the meet, which was held in spite of rain showers and stiff east wind that was in the faces of all sprinters and jumpers the entire day, served as a notice to Norton that the competition is going to be fierce going forward. “I think he's okay with his day,” Nicholls said.

at the line PECI’s Cole Norton strains to nip Ottawa’s Jean Noel at the finish line of the first of two midget boys 100 m heat sprints at the East Regionals in Brockville on Friday. Noel would have the last laugh, however, topping Norton to take second place in the 100 m final. Norton finished third. (Jason Parks/Gazette staff)

younger Panthers submitted personal best days including grade nine distance runner Hannah Smith who came sixth in the 800 m with a time of 2:30.37. “It's a total learning experience for our younger athletes and we found out there is some very tough

competition coming out of Ottawa this year. Remember, most of these athletes are single discipline competitors that train for this one event all year round so the competition is cut throat,” Nicholls said. “We're not really on the same plane, we have a ton

of multi-sport, multi-event athletes, three coaches and no track. That's the polar opposite of some of these schools,” she added. In terms of Norton's results, the East Regionals marked the first time this season he hasn't captured at least one gold medal.

And then there was one. In spite of qualifying in 17 East Regional events in Brockville last week, the PECI track and field team is down to one active member. Grade 9 Cole Norton continued to shine in his three disciplines last week, taking a pair of bronze medals in the 100-metre sprint (12.05 s) and long jump (5.57 m) and a silver in the triple jump event (11.51 m), just missing out on a gold in that event by two centimetres. Unfortunately, he is the lone Panther that will return to the Thousand Island's Secondary School track facility in Brockville this weekend and no other PECI athletes managed to crack the top four in any event. First-year senior Courtney Wilson stood as PECI's other best chance to make the All Ontario meet starting today however, she couldn't get comfortable in the circle during her shot put competition and wound up finishing seventh with a distance of 9.97 metres. Wilson showed well in the discus event (her secondary discipline) making a toss of 31.78 metres and finishing fifth, less than a metre behind the fourth place finisher. PECI track coach Beth Nicholls said several

Lindsay said it was nice to partner with local businesses like McDougall Insurance, Highline Mushrooms, Sandbanks Estate Winery, Elements Glass Studio, and the

Wellington recreation committee. She said having a social goal behind the race is added incentive for residents to participate and, to her, it's important to give something back to the community. She said the choice to benefit the playground at C.M..L. Snider was an easy one to make. “It's the heart of Wellington. There are so many central things that happen there that we're just going to keep it going there until we've got that place in top-notch shape.I just really enjoy putting on events and I know, unless the funds are going to something

R0011437890

The enthusiasm showed for this year's Wellington Women's Half Marathon impressed even the organizers. For the past two years the event, which also includes a “half-a-half” marathon, has brought women together to take part in a race where everyone can have a good time and everyone who finishes is considered a winner. The event was started last year by Lisa Lindsay and her running partner Paula Rideout as a way to assist the Lakeshore Track Association in their efforts to restore the race track at C.M.L. Snider School in Wellington. This year Lindsay and Rideout were back at it, raising funds to improve the playground at C.M.L. Snider. Lindsay said the event and the fundraising effort couldn't have gone any better. “We were elated with the ladies that participated — all 600 of them,” she said. “They seemed to love everything, right from the race kit pickup at Sandbanks Estate Winery where they had a wine tasting and got their awesome shirt.” Everyone who finished the race also got a necklace designed by Caroline Shuttle

an event like this,” said Lindsay. “Yes, I can plan it and my running partner can help me, but without the community's involvement — the people out there cheering and the volunteers who step up to the plate — none of these events are ever possible. Wr're really blessed to have the amount of true-hearted volunteerism is this community.”

— Horoscopes—

ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 Aries, your ambition will take you to new places this week. Channel your energy in a constructive method to make the most of this renewed vigor. TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 Taurus, now is the time to do slow and steady work, rather than experimenting with new methods. You'll have time for fun and some trial and error later on. GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 Gemini, for some reason you feel compelled to get started on something new in the next few days. This may be a job or a relationship -- only time will unveil the secrets. CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 Cancer, you will need to take an intellectual approach to solving what has been troubling you recently. Lists and careful consideration might be necessary. LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 You have to approach someone who hasn't been doing his or her share of the work, Leo. Tread gently because there could be a very good reason why this person has been floundering. VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 Open yourself up to a new line of thinking, Virgo. There are many different possibilities that you may have overlooked before now. Try to expand your horizons.

LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 Embrace spontaneity this week, Libra. It could turn out to be something exciting and fun, which is just what you need at this time in your life. SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22 Scorpio, take a step back and allow an upset family member a little breathing room this week. It's best not to add fuel to the fire in this particular situation. SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 Get out and try to meet some new people, Sagittarius. Constantly add to your collection of networking contacts, because you never know when you'll need to call in a favor. CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20 Capricorn, though you can see quite clearly what you need to do this week, you may have to refrain from taking any action for some time. Try to be patient a little longer. AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 Aquarius, things have been going your way and you are getting more and more excited about the future. This influx of enthusiasm is just what you need. PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20 Your big ideas are highly valued, Pisces. Let others know what you are thinking and don't be surprised if others ask for your advice.

MEMORIAMS

DUBOIS- In loving memory of Alicia Rene Dubois born June 7, 1991. You should know we loved you, from the very start. Your tiny toes and hands, and your little heart. In our lives we've loved you dearly, In our hearts you hold a place In all we do we miss you daily, We would love to see your face. To want but never have, to hurt, fell loss and to part, is the most tragic of sorrows to fill a families heart. She'd be full of strength and beauty, and always longing to learn more. She'd be full of life and love, and wouldn't stop till she could soar. As our lives move on without you, you are a part of all we do. As long as our hearts are beating, It's as if yours is beating too. It broke our hearts to lose you, but you didn't go alone. Part of us went with you, on the day God took you home. Written by Your Big Sister. Love Mom, Dad, Shannon & Jason.

BROOKS, Gordon June 8, 1923-December 23, 2003 Time has a way of slipping by But love and memory never die, Silent thoughts of times together Hold memories that will last forever. Lovingly remembered by Dorothy, Dennis, Patricia, John and their families.

GYDE, Wayne Francis April 5, 1954 - June 6, 2009 Three years have passed since you have been gone and still we go on. Our lives ever so lost and lonely without the man who carried us on. You left your Legacy in your children and their children who you would have been so proud of, a chip off the "old block". Just a few words can sum it up sweetheart... (Dad and Grandpa) "We will always love you". Never forgotten by wife Donna, children Michael and Shannon, Amanda and Drew, Dwayne and Brittany, grandson's Wayne Gyde and Hayden Cooper. HOTSTON, Richard "Rick". In loving memory of a dear brother and uncle who passed away June 12, 1997. A butterfly lights beside us like a sunbeam And for a brief moment it's glory and beauty belong to our world, But then it flies again And though we wish it could have stayed... We feel lucky to have seen it. Loved and remembered always, Kendra and Otto, Monika, Brad, Braelyn and Madelyn.

Building a broad-based party more important than choosing a leader, Liberal youth critic suggests

TRUDEAU, from page 3

“Give them tools to enact change today and weigh in today in their community

and their world. This is how you empower young people, you involve them,” he concluded. Inevitably, Trudeau was

asked questions about the party’s leadership and whether he might run. He denied it is something he is about to do. “ I don't know yet who it should be. I’ve said a whole bunch of times it's not going to be me,” he said. “The kind of leader we need is going to have to be able to move beyond politics as usual. There is a lot of interest in

how the Liberal party positions itself outside the same old polarization.” Trudeau said he doesn’t believe the Liberals are too concerned about finding a leader right away, but instead working on building an inclusive party after their largest election failure last year. “For the past year or so we've managed to put that

completely aside, we've been focusing — in rooms like this with people such as you — on the hard work we have to do all together,” he said. “It's not about picking the right leader and having everything fall into place, it's about pulling together and connecting. The Liberal party when we're at our best will always beat their best.” In a media scrum that night, Trudeau also said he thinks uniting the so-called left is a terrible idea, one that he wants no part of. When asked about the idea of being in Prince

Edward-Hastings, a riding that has swung Conservative for several years, Trudeau said being here is just part of building the type of party the Liberals need to be. He’s even gone to Alberta, a place his father wasn’t warmly received while in office to drum up support. “I wouldn't be here if we didn't consider there is work to be done right across the country. We’re not going to pick and choose strategically,” he said. “People know we can do better and we deserve better. Everywhere is fair game.”

Numbers pick up again as Kids of Steel attracts larger field in sixth year Chad Ibbotson Staff writer

It was overcast, but the rain held off as more than 200 kids took part in the annual Kids of Steel Triathlon on Sunday. The event took place at the Prince Edward Fitness and Aquatic Centre (PEFAC) and just like a traditional triathlon incorporated swimming, running and biking around a course. The event featured kids from ages 6-17. Organizer and volunteer race director Stephanie Roth said it was an excellent turnout for the sixth annual event and the attendance continues to show an increased awareness of the triathlon. With lots of other sporting events taking place over the weekend, the event was still able to attract a whole lot of participants. “There were quite a few other things going on, but it wasn't bad considering we had an all-time low last year,” she said. “Three years ago we had such terrible weather that last years numbers were affected.” There was a cool breeze and it looked like it would rain for the majority of the day, but ultimately the kids trekked on undaunted by the weather. Roth said it's always exciting to see how competitive and how athletic the kids are every year. “There are some kids, even the younger ones, you can just see their technique in their running is quite amazing and how fast some of the kids can be on their bikes — especially they older groups, they just fly,” she said. Overall, Roth said the event was a success. “We had a captains' meeting after the event and there were rave reviews all around, parents were happy,” she said. Roth said the event has in the past and continued to shine a positive light on both PEFAC and the county. “We're known as being one of the (Kids of Steel) events in Ontario that's really, really well organized,” she

tre run, in 34 minutes and 32 seconds. The time was good enough for second in his heat and third overall in his category. The 12-year-old Picton resident said it was a challenge to get to the finish line, but it was rewarding. “It was great, the bad part was I almost threw up because I was so tired. “ Wiens said his best triathlon component was his biking. “I worked the most at that,” he said. “It feels pretty good, I left it all out there.” Carl Wiens, Lucas' father, said it was great to see his son finish such a challenging activity. “We're very proud of Lucas. He's been improving and working very hard at this and I think it really paid off this year for him,” he said. “His running has really improved — everything has. It's a tough race because there are so many different disciplines.” Top three finishers: Boys 6-7 Reese Kleinsteuber, Chase Colby, Rylan McConnell; Girls 6-7: Andrea Richards, Rebecca Pearce, Alice Graham; Boys 8-9: Simon Scholey, Christopher Kerstens, Braden Geens; Girls 8-9: Ali Jones, Morgan McFadden, Julia Cossarin; Boys 10-11: Tristen Jones, Tomas Cossarin, Oliver Stonehouse; Girls 10-11: Breanna Loucks, Raeanne Breton, Gracey Vanberkel; Boys 12-13: Mitchell Mow-

The Picton Gazette THURSDAY, JUNE 7, 2012

Manor decision devastating to staff, patients, families Jason Parks

Staff writer

There were tears of frustration and feelings of angst at Thursday's meeting between Picton Manor resident's families and Ministry of Health and Longterm Care officials. But after the cards were laid on the table and it was made overwhelming clear the home can't stay open any longer, the hopelessness and depression of the situation was starting to set in after Ministry officials has brought those attending up to date. Lisa McGill, a manager, said after the meeting she couldn't describe how upsetting the news was to both staff and management-almost all who will be out of work within about six months.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I don't have any words to describe how devastating this is. There are girls here that are going to lose their houses, people going to have to move and, on top of that, it's really difficult to know that our residents are going to have to go somewhere where they aren't as comfortable,â&#x20AC;? McGill said. McGill explained the interaction between care giver and care receiver is a special bond, particularity when both have become accustom to one another. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are certain thing you learn about residents and this type of stuff has to be learned and it can take a long period of time,â&#x20AC;? she said. David Carpenter agrees. A local educator and writer, Carpenter's mother entered Picton Manor about nine years ago and

could walk and communicate verbally at that time. However, a series of strokes have left her without the ability to interact with with staff orally and she now has only partial use of her left hand. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The staff know her so well that they know from her movements and her expressions what she needs and what she wants,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When she is moved, she will be with staff that don't know her from anybody and she will appear to be non-communicative.â&#x20AC;? A move at this juncture in her life will be extremely difficult, according to Carpenter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Her morale will plummet,â&#x20AC;? He said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The only reason she's still alive is because of her will power and I think that will be decimated when she's relocated.â&#x20AC;?

suing any further action against the former licensee and the revoking of the license does not alter the former licenseeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s obligation to his creditors,â&#x20AC;? Gass stated. As for the 78 long-term care beds that are being taken

out of rotation in the Quinte area, it's believed the SE LHIN would prefer to see those beds remain local to Prince Edward County at a new facility although the health group could not be reached to verify this.

Action highest form of enforcement ministry can take

Ministry spokesperson Tori Gass told the Gazette revoking the licence was the highest enforcement action that could be taken by the province. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The ministry is not pur-

â&#x20AC;&#x153;For them to make this a worthwhile exercise they have to establish a rapport and communication and that's how they're going to get their sales for the next year or two because somebody had a chance to talk with them on a one-on-one basis,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That's vital to artisan product.â&#x20AC;? After a hectic weekend Kolesnikovs said it was evident that most visitors had a positive experience. He said organizers held an informal exit poll and the festival received positive reviews. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Consumers were saying it was a great show and you can see it,â&#x20AC;? he said, adding that many of the complimen-

Mieke Fenton from Port Hope. Louis said they heard about the festival on the radio and felt compelled to make the trip. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It's nice wine, nice beer, nice cheese and a nice day out,â&#x20AC;? said Louis. The couple said the event was very well organized and they had visited most of the tables in the Crystal Palace. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We've tried most of the cheeses in the building,â&#x20AC;? said Mieke. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It's been very good. I have no complaints about anything. It's wonderful and we would come again.â&#x20AC;? As for next year's Great Canadian Cheese Festival, a date hasn't been set yet, but Kolesnikovs said organizers plan to keep up the momentum of the young event.

"They're not afraid and they won't be tense," he said. "For us, the first goal is to execute in the round robin and make the quarterfinals. We should be able to do that â&#x20AC;&#x201D; it's not easy, but it's something we can do. You never know how it unfolds after that." Wadforth said simply "We're hoping for better,"

when asked if this team would match last year's impressive start. He said if the Panthers play as they did in the regular season, they should be able to do so. Philip said the support of the school and the community is also a motivating factor. "Everyone knows we're going and is wishing us luck. Everyone is talking about it.â&#x20AC;? The Panthers received extra support from the Kinsmen Club and Prince Edward County Soccer Association as well as the Prince Edward County Fire Department. The team's first game is today at noon against Cardinal Carter Secondary School from Leamington, then they'll play St. Thomas Aquinas from Oakville at 3 p.m. Also in the Panthers' pool are Fort Frances and St. Mary's Catholic. The tournament wraps up Saturday.

Panthers open with pair of games this afternoon

Pickard said he's been impressed with the team's front-line talent and depth as well as the character of the players in the time he's worked with them. He said he believes the maturity of the returnees from last year will shine through.

Montreal residents Ellis Timerman and Ali Antolin said they made a six hour drive to attend the festival. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We're big cheese lovers,â&#x20AC;? said Antolin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Definitely,â&#x20AC;? added Timerman. The couple said they saw an article in the Montreal Gazette about the festival and decided to make it a weekend trip and visit Antolin's family in Toronto. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We couldn't help ourselves,â&#x20AC;?

Perhaps the Panthers' best chance to score came right in the first inning as they had three runners in the top half of the order reach base, but they didn't manage to advance them. Though disappointed to lose their only game of the year, the Panthers realized Farrell's efforts on the day were the difference and sometimes that's all it takes to determine the outcome. "He really shut us out. He has great stuff," said Gallo. "It was one game, but it was too bad that it was a game that mattered." Ronan was upbeat about the season, regardless of the Bay of Quinte outcome. He said he felt pleased with the Panthers' 7-1 record and the way they outscored their opponents collectively by more than 30 runs. He added the future looks bright for the team. "When you look at it, my starting pitcher (Gallo) is in Grade 11, my reliever (Bob Wilson) is in Grade 10, my shortstop (Kyle Gould) is in Grade 10, and we have three more seniors in the infield who are going to return for a fifth year in their current plan," he said. "The talent coming up is great too." Meanwhile, the Titans, who were hungry to beat the Panthers after suffering a 4-2 loss in Wellington early in the year, got revenge and will head to Mississauga for OFSAA.
