Prince Edward County’s largest urban centre got its first direct taste of the 2014 provincial election Tuesday as two candidates made their way to Picton. In the morning, Liberal Georgina Thompson joined former County mayor Leo Finnegan and a small group of her campaign team as they went up and down Main Street to introduce the candidate to business people and their patrons. After about a couple of hours of discussions and glad-handing in any open shop she could visit, Thompson was upbeat upon a return visit to the Gazette office. “We went all the way up to Tim Hortons, stopped in just about every business, then crossed the street (and visited more),” Thompson said. “They’re very positive. Nobody is out there saying ‘Yay, yay, we’re going to vote for you, but they were very positive and saying they’re glad I’m running — things like that.” Thompson said she received questions about a variety of topics on her walk, including job creation, infrastructure, the hospital, and green energy. She indicated the stimulus budget Kathleen Wynne’s government brought forward that triggered an election had a provision to help rebuild rural infrastructure in Ontario. “I believe there’s $24.8 million for rural infrastructure in the budget,” she said. “It appears your roads are a big deal. There will be money in there for roads.” Thompson said her party is interested in listening to the needs of municipalities and, if elected, would look to councils to identify their needs to be addressed. “It’s not really for us to dictate what we’re going to do,” she said. “It’s for you to tell us what you need and put in for that.” Calling the budget a “very aggressive” one, Thompson said the Liberals will be investing in health care and education if they return to government. With respect to the hospital, the former South East Local Health Integration Network chair said she

heard concerns about the hospital closing, but noted the plan was always to rebuild the facility and that plan is still moving forward. “It’ll have the services the area needs,” she said. “For sure, you’re going to have an emergency department, you’ll have some beds — it’s between the committee that is working on it, doctors from this community are working on it and they’ll best decide what services and what its specialty is going to be.” With regard to the turbine issue, Thompson said “I see the need for all forms of clean energy” and added some groups have told her they don’t think turbines need to be gone entirely, but rather, just moved away from flight paths. She indicated the many appeals that followed the Ostrander Point approval are part of the democratic process. She appeared ready to let the courts determine the outcome. “Nobody has won or lost,” she said. “It all depends what comes out of the (appeals process).” Thompson said she believes Wynne is the only leader who knows how to stimulate the economy and

she attacked Progressive Conservative leader Tim Hudak’s million jobs plan. “Where are all those jobs going to come from, where is he going to take them from?” she said. “Police, nursing, and not-for-profit organizations. That is a good thing? I don’t think so.” Thompson indicated she would be back in the county knocking on doors, but did not mention any plans for a county- based office. Meanwhile, just after 6 p.m. Smith walked into his office just south of Shire Hall with his wife Tawnya and his daughters Peyton and Reagan to the applause of about 30 supporters, including former Progressive Conservative MPPs Gary Fox, James Taylor, and Bill Wightman, Taylor, the first mayor of the County, had high praise for Smith. “I want to say how impressed I was with our candidate here, just a very solid, knowledgeable intelligent person who does what he says,” Taylor said with a staccato delivery on the last five words. “It's that integrity that is so important to me”.

Smith says its his job to help people understand party’s plan to cut bureaucracy

CAMPAIGN, from page 1

Smith told the crowd that in his two-and-a-half years as a first-time MPP, he did what he promised in 2011. “When I was elected I promised I was going to bring a strong voice to

Queen's Park, I was going to bring the voice of Prince Edward County and Hastings County to Queen's Park so they understood what wasn't amenable in Price Edward County, your voice wasn't being heard at Queen's Park,” he said.

tion Networks, which don’t directly care for patients, they’re at the Ontario Power Authority, which will be made redundant when his party ends the feed-in tariff program, or other hydro jobs that are already redundant. “Even Smokey Thomas of OPSEU said there are 40,000 jobs at the middle management of the public sector that we can do without,” he said. “It all adds up to a bloated bureaucracy and everyone knows it exists. “Priorities is what it all comes down to. It’s providing front-line health-care services, it’s about putting teachers in classrooms, not board offices, and about those developmental service workers we need to provide front-line services, not people pushing pencils in offices,” he said. Smith said he doesn’t shy away from talking to constituents concerned about public sector cuts and indicated the campaign period is his chance to explain the plan. “That’s my job over the next four weeks to make sure

people understand it,” he said. “There are people in unions who have their own take, but this all just comes down to priorities.” Smith had members of local anti-wind groups, wineries, small business organizations, and service clubs in his audience Tuesday. He noted he worked hard to support their issues over the past term. “I’ve met with local tourism organizations and chambers of commerce — I've met with all of them, I know what their issues are. I"I’ve been pleased to bring forward legislation to deal with those issues,” he said, citing legislation to restore municipal decision making in green energy planning, another bill that helped the wine industry, other red-tape reducing legislation, as well as the meetings he’s had with health-care stakeholders and others in the riding. “I promised to be that strong voice for Prince Edward County and I’m looking to follow through as best I can,” he said.

“I think people are ready for change. A lot of feeling of mistrust, the current government saying they're going to do one thing and going to do another thing.” When asked about the criticism provincially for Hudak’s plan, Smith quipped that’s because “it’s the only plan out there.” He said the Liberal budget simply brought with it more reckless spending and said it is time for a bit of tough medicine to rein in that spending. “Government has grown by leaps and bounds the last five years, we understand that but nobody else seems to understand that,” he said. Smith noted that since 2009, the public sector has grown by 100,000 jobs, yet virtually no private sector jobs have been added. He dismissed the notion that all public sector jobs are on the chopping block should the PC Party win election. “Most of those jobs are bureaucrats,” he said. Smith said those jobs are at the Local Health Integra-

“ That's exactly what I did when I had that opportunity to sit in that legislature for the first time.” Smith didn’t speak a lot about the issues in the meeting, but attempted to rally his troops to help with door-todoor campaigning and staffing the office to help swing a victory. “We really do need change in Ontario. We got the change right in Prince Edward-Hastings and a lot of other ridings in 2011, we’ve got to finish that job to make sure we have a Progressive Conservative government so we can start the turnaround to get this province back on track.” Smith did indicate that though he has yet to start knocking in the county, he has personally visited 15 different polls in Belleville. He said he was well received. “I’m very pleased with the support from the people of Belleville. The signs are going like crazy. People are grabbing them and putting them on their lawns, he told the Gazette.

“The committee has brought the medical and law enforcement communities together so we can see the problem from all sides,� she said. “ Mann notes that just through collection events within the OPP jurisdiction alone last year, some 330 kg were collected with an estimated street value of $370,000. “It really is everywhere, not just in the big cities,� Mann said. He indicated that through Saturday’s event, the committee could not only keep the narcotics out of the wrong hands, but also prevent unsafe disposal into landfills and water supplies. Also, both Mann and Hall wanted to stress to

people that the OPP collection isn’t the only opportunity people have to turn in narcotics with no questions asked. “This can be done any day of the year at any pharmacy,� Hall indicated.

She explained that pharmacies are able to turn their collected narcotics over for incineration, which takes place in a facility that has been approved by Ontario’s environment ministry.

A colorful collection of pills started to pile up within the first hour of a safe narcotics disposal event at the Prince Edward OPP detachment Saturday morning. In loose bags, in vacuum sealed popping packets, and in individual, labelled vials there were ample quantities of such potent prescription drugs as morphine and oxycodone. “If it fell into the wrong hands it would be a concern,� said OPP community services officer Const. Anthony Mann, who indicated he was hopeful the collection would net more drugs as the day went on. “We’re hopeful that we do get more, but really, just what we do have, we’re happy to have. It helps reduce prescription drug abuse and misuse. In recent years, that type of usage of prescription drugs has become a real headache for both law enforcement and healthcare professionals. A study conducted through Prince Edward County pharmacies in October 2010 showed that 40,000 oxycodone pills were prescribed by local doctors to their patients in that month alone. With those statistics, the fact that police noticed there is a steady trade of illegal prescription drug sales, and another 2009 study that suggested 20 per cent of Canadian students between Grades 7 and 12 took at least one prescription drug for a non-medical reason in a year, several community stakeholder groups formed the Prince Edward County Narcotics Committee to educate the public and push for change. Janice Hall, a pharmacist with the Prince Edward Family Health Team, said the committee has been actively working on awareness, however it is hard to quantify the impact “On the prescribing side, we are seeing that education working as narcotics are being prescribed less for many conditions, but the overall impact is hard to measure,� she said. Hall explained it is hard to quantify how many prescription drugs are out in the community, so it’s hard to measure what is being used as intended and what is being brought in for safe destruction. That uncertainty has also made it a drug of choice for some as elderly or sick relatives often don’t notice their medications are missing.

cial legislature and being the only party to know when an election would be triggered, the NDP had to play some catch up in Prince Edward-Hastings. On Friday, the Ontario NDP’s local riding association took care of that business by declaring Merrill Stewart its candidate at a meeting at the Unicor Hall in Belleville. The 63-year-old Stewart is making his first run in Ontario, though he is no stranger to provincial politics having run for the NDP

in Clover Bar-Fort Saskatchewan during the 2001 Alberta election, where he placed third behind PC Rob Lougheed and Liberal Skip Gordon. A father of two, Stewart moved to Belleville in 2004 and has spent the last eight years as a member of the local riding association’s executive committee. Stewart had been working with Sears’ home improvement sales division, but recently took early retirement during a round of layoffs in the company.

Originally from Prince Edward Island, Stewart was the son of a Royal Canadian Air Force member and found his family moved often around Canada. His wife Linda lives with him in Belleville, while his two sons live in Edmonton and Toronto respectfully. Stewart has also spent considerable time working with a number of charitable organizations. He has served as the national chair of the Canadian Friends Service Committee, a charity that works to promote international peace and development, jails, justice, and Indigenous issues. He also sat on the board of Bridging the Gap, a charity that works with children and is a member of the International Civil Liberties Monitoring Group, which includes human rights groups, unions, and churches that have become concerned with anti-terrorist legislation on Canadian civil liberties. In a press release issued by the riding association, some of Stewart’s acceptance speech was made available to the media. There, he spoke about jobs and took aim at Tim Hudak’s plan to cut public

service positions in order to create private sector jobs. “This election is about jobs. You don’t create jobs by laying 100,000 people off. We’ve had 100 years of austerity and it doesn’t work,” he said. “Andrea Horwath’s plan to give employers a tax credit for hiring new employees is a plan to create jobs.” Stewart indicated he was planning to formally kick off his campaign in Bancroft this week. The Gazette’s e-mail requests through his campaign manager Andy Hanson for an interview were not granted prior to press time. In 2011, Bancroft area

nurse Sherry Hayes ran for the NDP in Prince EdwardHastings, where she came in third place behind PC Todd Smith (18, 732) and Liberal incumbent Leona Dombrowsky (15,688) as she garnered 7,400 votes or 16.6 per cent of the overall votes in the riding,. That was more than 1,000 votes higher than previous candidate Jodie Jenkins took in 2007 and was the closest the NDP came to winning the local seat since Paul Johnson was elected MPP in 1990, part of a surprising sweep across the province that saw Bob Rae the first New Democratic premier in the province’s history.

St. John’s Anglican Church looks forward to 75th Apple Blossom Festival in Waupoos County Cider to play host to landmark spring celebration May 25 Jason Parks

Staff writer

It's a celebration three quarters of a century in the making and the 75th annual St. John's Anglican Church Apple Blossom festival held in Waupoos at the County Cider Company May 25 from 1-3 p.m. promises to be the best one yet. While the traditional hand crafted pies made by the St. John's parishioners and community minded folks along County Rd. 8 will be available by the pie or by the slice, this year's event will incorporate the County Cider Company and their offerings. “It's such a great community get-together and it draws people from all over but we really want to encourage people to stop by this year and support St. John's and the work they do in the Waupoos community,” event organizer Judith van Baste-

laar said. A more comprehensive program incorporating one of Ontario's hottest craft cider company with the standard pie sale and blossom festival is a spin on one of Prince Edward County's oldest continuing community celebrations.

Howes said he was happy to open the cider house doors and bring in a slate of events sure to compliment the pie sale as well as a slice of Black

River Cheese over a warm slice “We are going to present tutored cider tastings, not only with our ciders but with other Ontario craft ciders and we are introducing some new ciders that won't be available until June including a pear cider and a cider that uses blood orange juice,” Howes said. One of the tastings involves a craft cider produced under the watch of renowned chef Chris Haworth who will be on hand making a special batch of paella. “Spain is one of the world's largest consumers of cider and this dish goes unbelievably well with cider,” Howes said. A walking tour of the orchard where Howes will have experimental and standard varieties of apple trees in bloom along with baby lambs are other aspects of the festival that has drawn thousands of people over the

“Some of the Jamaican workers were saving up money to take home to their families and they were robbed,” Howes said. “Unbeknownst to any of the farmers in Waupoos, the congregation and the church got together and replaced the money and I think the guys actually got more than what they had originally saved.” “Those are the types of good deeds that are done in this community and that's why this fundraiser is so important,” van Bastelaar added. “This is a very involved community and we always want to be doing more.”

n Raynor and Williams purchased the Bayside Inn from J.H. Fitzpatrick. The former orphanage was transitioned into a popular resort destination by its previous owner, resulting in a spike in tourism in Picton. The new owners planned to continue to work to establish the site as a popular summer destination. n A fire broke out in the basement of the Oddfellows Building at about 6:45 p.m. and was found to have arisen among wastepaper stored in a box. Had R.H. Calnan not found the box and prompted W.T. Pope to sound the alarm, it was expected that the fire could have threatened an entire town block. n Town council instructed its solicitor to prepare a letter stating that upon passing a bylaw proposed by the reeve, curtains and stalls would be removed from all restaurants within the town. No reason was listed for the intended changes. n Despite a bid by mayor Blakely to have parking in Picton returned to curbside parallel parking, council voted to keep its angular parking in place.

70 years ago — 1944

n Each of the municipalities in Prince Edward County exceeded their targets in the Victory Loan campaign as the total collected exceeded $1,246,000 for the sixth such campaign. Picton found its goal of $392, 500 the hardest to fill, but on the last day W.H. Benson bought $75,000 worth of the bonds to put his community over the top to support the war effort. nDr. J.K.L. Christian, a winner of the Military Cross, who served in the First World War died in Ottawa following a post-war career of hospital administration. He was buried in Picton’s Glenwood Cemetery, where many of his wife’s family members were also buried. n A runaway team of horses caused a lot of damage on the Wellington farm of D.C. Stevenson. The team, driven by a hired hand became frightened, ran, and piled up near a fence. One horse crashed to the ground, broke a leg, and was destroyed. Bob Stevenson ran to extricate the horses and found himself kicked in the leg.

60 years ago — 1954

n Education minister Dr. W.J. Dunlop opened Picton’s new $1 million Prince Edward Collegiate Institute after Premier Leslie Frost was forced to spend 10 days in hospital after a flare-up of a First World War sniper bullet wound in his left hip. The facility would also host commencement that same day. nThe junior non-commissioned officers’ mess at the Royal Canadian School of Artillery burned to the ground, with its loss estimated at about $15,000.

20 years ago — 1994

n Sophiasburgh council ordered a new explosives transfer and storage cite to cease operations and remove explosives until it obtained proper zoning. The site had 59,000 kilograms of explosives stored in fie trailer-style magazines. Sensing the community’s objection, the operator said his company would pull up roots, avoiding an OMB hearing. n Ontario Liberal leader Lyn McLeod met with local riding association members and chambers of commerce, hoping to gain support for an upcoming election.

On being the very first

Call me anthropomorphic, if you want. I don’t really care. The bobolinks each spring return to the hay field beside our house on almost the same day each year - May 3. This spring it was May 5. I was okay with that. After all, it was a long winter and the weather affected the arrival dates of some species. They are essentially birds of open fields, and not something many of us have on our “yard list.” Upon their return each spring to our area, a half dozen or so gather at the tops of the trees along our fence, and burst out in a joyful frolic of song, as though to make sure that I am aware of their arrival. Then, as if content that I have seen them, they return to the field and erupt into a series of rollicking notes, full of kinks and twists that would be impossible to transcribe to musical scale. Shooting up into the air like a skylark, the male paddles along on the tips of its wings, seemingly propelled by the tempo of the song, then drops into the grass while another male takes the cue and repeats the performance. It is a stage show, highlighted by several encores, and would appear to be a dress rehearsal for my benefit alone. Am I being too anthropomorphic? Two were in the trees beside my fence early that morning, May 5, and as always, made a special effort to announce their presence – the same trees that are ignored once the nesting sea-


TERRY SPRAGUE son gets underway. As I walked toward the car in the driveway to leave for an early morning appointment, the two bobolinks came further into the yard and sang from a white spruce. Hardly habitat conducive to a bobolink. Is it possible that these two birds that nested in the field last summer, had actually recognized me? Perhaps sublimely connecting me with the hay field that I walk around every morning? Certainly if these are the same birds who were present last summer, they saw me every morning. I won’t go so far as to admit – at least, not in this column anyway – that I held conversations with these birds last summer, but I would like to think that they were comfortable with my presence so near their nests, and had come to accept my daily appearance. Did these two birds last week recognize

me? Is that possible? Of course, all we can do is speculate about such things. If nothing else, the possibility provides comfort for the soul, and that can’t be a bad thing. I always seem to find myself unconsciously in competition with the sharp eyes of Ontario Birds e-mail subscribers, whose 2,500 keen birders invariably come up with early spring migrants two or three days ahead of me. E-mails pour in mainly from Point Pelee, Rondeau, Long Point and Toronto, enthusiastically reporting the first arrivals in their area, always a few days before they arrive here. While a two-or three-day time delay can be expected, situated as we are at the east end of Lake Ontario, it would be nice to be first once in a while. Yet, here they were last week, just barely into May, having already arrived back from southern Brazil where they had spent the winter. And no one else in Ontario had seen any. Their rollicking notes were delivered ecstatically as they announced their return to the hay fields where they will nest this summer. Even from a distance, the males’ holiday apparel stood out along the distant fenceline, ready to cheer and charm the females, once they return a week or two later. Our experiences with blackbirds have programmed us to dislike and mistrust members of this family whose beneficial traits go largely unnoticed, while their nest robbing attrib-

utes, high population and predominance at bird feeders stand out vividly in our memory. Their infamous reputation is more than made up by other members of the same family whose appearance brightens our backyards — the Baltimore oriole, the eastern meadowlark and, in more recent years, the orchard oriole. The bobolink, also a member of the same questionable family, is the ambassador of the open fields, whose merry, jingling outbursts keeps the atmosphere festive beyond the backyard. Even more than our beloved Baltimore oriole, the arrival of the bobolink each spring is assurance that the snows of winter are behind us, and life has meaning again. Once the bobolinks arrive, we know the floodgates will soon open, and flycatchers, warblers, thrushes and other neotropical migrants cannot be far behind. Despite the cool weather of late April, migrants continue to trickle in bravely, but warm southerly winds will stimulate birds to cross Lake Ontario, seeking the first point of land to rest and feed before moving on. We are ready for them, with binoculars poised.

Heal With Horses therapy centre to host open hose Saturday

The Horse Boy method has been considered an up-andcoming therapy to help people with autism communicate, advocate, and find joy. This weekend, a local equine therapy provider is giving Prince Edward County residents a first-hand opportunity to see how the method works. On Saturday from 11 am. to 4 p.m. the Heal With Horses not-for-profit centre will host its first open house at its facility on 997 Danforth Road.

There, organizers say the public will have a chance to see a demonstration of the Horse Boy method, and also learn about how the centre mixes that with equine-guided learning, where participants engage with horses on the ground in an activity that is said to help offer self-awareness and leadership development. The centre will also be showing off its facilities for stress-free riding sessions and a farm and nature camp called

The More Than Human World. In addition to the demonstrations that will take place between 12 and 3 p.m. there will also be a chance to enjoy a barbecue and to meet a herd of micro-mini therapy pigs, which are owned by Heal With Horses’ sister business Our Little Piggy. Children will also have an opportunity to play on a playscape, make crafts, wander with their families through nature trails, and say hello to

the horses. An information table and a bike raffle will also be in play. Admission to the open house will be by donation and Heal With Horses spokesperson Suzanne Latchford says her centre will take those donations and help enable another family with an autistic child to make use of their facilities and services in the future. -Staff

cattlemen Promote cardiac care The Prince Edward County Cattlemen donated an additional $2,500 to the Prince Edward Family Health Team’s cardiac rehabilitation program for an education library with up-to-date reference books, exercise DVDs, information posters, Nordic walking poles, and a beautiful display cabinet. That money is on top of the $70,000 the Cattlemen raised to purchase exercise equipment for the cardiac rehab program, which has seen over 150 referrals since Feb. 2012.

Producers must be considered in U.S. price gap debates

EVEN with the Canadian dollar slipping back down around 90 cents in American currency after a few years at or near par with the greenback, there likely still several Quinte area families among the 1.7 million non-commercial vehicles each year that cross the border at Hill Island and many of them are going around the east end of Lake Ontario to shop. Many people who favour cross-border shopping in the United States say they go there for the selection as there are varieties of products that aren’t available in Canada on shelves south of the border. A lot of those shoppers also cite pricing differences as a reason they aren’t supporting stores at home. List prices for items like automobiles, books, gasoline, and children’s clothing are indeed enticing, but a lot of families have been finding their way to grocery stores in the United States because many farm products are cheaper there. A recent study from the C.D. Howe Institute think tank cited statistics from the Organization for Economic Co-operations and Development (OECD) that noted dairy products were priced 77 per cent higher on average in Canada than in the United States and that meat cost 76 per cent more. Both of those figures, the Howe research indicates, have risen dramatically since 2007. It’s a worrisome number. When one recalls that Canada greatly increased the exemptions on taxes and duty for cross-border shopping in 2012 — increasing personal limits for 24 hours from $50 to $200 and for 48 hours from $400 to $800, one could really stock a fridge affordably. In its February budget, the Canadian government had noted that it would work to eliminate that price gap between the two countries, which on the surface would seem to be a good thing for keeping dollars in the economy. The Howe Institute cautions, however, that much of the reason for the difference in prices between the two countries comes in areas where Canada has provisions in place to support its own producers such as supply management schemes, marketing boards, and protective tariff designed to prevent the import of lower quality goods. Such provisions have been painstakingly debated and crafted over several years with the input of various agricultural organizations and commodity groups, all levels of government, and some retail representation as well. One would presume the assistance in place would ensure that Canadian producers are getting the dollar values they need to stay viable, to provide food for Canadians, and to compete in the international marketplace. When working to eliminate the price gap, government must ensure that whatever it does, domestic farmers will continue to thrive and continue to offer the best quality goods they possibly can to help keep Canadian families buying homegrown. That said, all possible attempts should be made to encourage wholesaling and competition within the market to drive down consumer costs where possible. The closer to home money is spent, ultimately, the better the economy will be for all around.

Pick up a good book, selected by County library staff

Articles in this column suggesting books and movies available from the library have been well received, so we present a few more titles for your consideration. Note that books circulate through the six branches of the library and any title can be ordered from any branch. Gisa Iannaaci recommends The Shadow Collector by Kate Ellis. It’s a classic “who- dunnit” according to Gisa and a good read. The online summary on the library’s site (there is one for every book in the collection) explains the story. “Lilith Benley and her mother were rumored to be witches, and when they killed two teenage girls and fed their bodies to their pigs, they were swiftly brought to justice. Eighteen years later, a young woman is found brutally murdered at a neighboring farm, just as Lilith, recently released from prison, returns to her old home. The farm is the setting for a celebrity TV show and when Detective Inspector Wesley Peterson is called in to investigate, he has to deal with fragile egos and hidden truths. Meanwhile, archaeologist Neil Watson discovers a gruesome wax doll at a house that once belonged to a woman hanged for witchcraft in the 17th Century. Meanwhile, when Lilith vanishes and a celebrity dies in grisly circumstances, Wesley knows it is up to him to uncover terrible secrets and lies from the past and bring a dangerous killer to justice--a killer who will stop at nothing to dispense vengeance and death.” Danger figures in the recommendation from Archives manager Krista Richardson as well in the book A Walk Across the Sun by Corban Addison. Addison leads readers on a chilling, eye-opening journey into Mumbai's seedy underworld--and the nightmare of two orphaned girls swept into the international sex trade. When a tsunami rages through their coastal town in India, 17-year-old Ahalya Ghai and her 15year-old sister Sita are left orphaned and homeless. With almost everyone they know suddenly erased from the face of the earth, the girls set out for the convent where they attend school. They are abducted almost immediately and sold to a Mumbai brothel owner, beginning a hellish descent into the sex trade. Halfway across the world, Washington, D.C., attorney Thomas Clarke faces his own personal and professional crisis and makes the fateful decision to pursue a pro bono sabbatical working in India for an NGO that prosecutes the subcontinent's human traffickers. There, his conscience awakens as he sees firsthand the horrors of the trade in human flesh, and the corrupt judicial system that fosters it. Learning of the fate of Ahalya and Sita, Clarke makes it his personal mission to rescue them, setting the stage for a riveting showdown with an international network of ruthless criminals. For something completely different, and for those who enjoy non-fiction, consider this recommendation by Linda Mann for Longitude by Dava Sobel. “An interesting and easy read about the development


The Picton Gazette


of a reliable and accurate method of determining longitude,” says Mann, “something we currently take for granted.” The book chronicles the true story of a lone genius who solved the greatest scientific problem of his time. Anyone alive in the eighteenth century would have known that "the longitude problem" was the thorniest scientific dilemma of the day--and had been for centuries. The quest for a solution has occupied scientists for the better part of two centuries when, in 1714, England's Parliament upped the ante by offering a king's ransom to anyone whose method or device proved successful. One man, John Harrison, dared to imagine a mechanical solution--a clock that would keep precise time at sea, something no clock had ever been able to do on land. Longitude is the dramatic human story of an epic scientific quest, and of Harrison's forty-year obsession with building his perfect timekeeper, known today as the chronometer. Full of heroism and chicanery, brilliance and the absurd, it is also a fascinating brief history of astronomy, navigation, and clockmaking. Through Dava Sobel's consummate skill, Longitude opens many new windows on our world. Patrick O'Brian, author of the Aubrey/Maturin naval series wrote of the book, "The marine chronometer is a glorious and fascinating object, but it is not a simple one, and its explanation calls for a writer as skilled with words as the watchmakers were with their tools: happily just such a writer has been found in Dava Sobel." I recommend a title from an author that appeared at this year’s recent Authors Festival. From the author of Cereus Blooms at Night and Valmiki's Daughter, both nominated for the Scotiabank Giller Prize, comes a beautifully written novel entitled Moving Forward Sideways Like a Crab. Author Shani Mootoo’s prose vividly conjures both the tropical landscape of Trinidad and the muted winter cityscape of Toronto, but it’s the passionate eulogy to a beloved parent, and the nuanced, moving tale about the struggle to embrace the complex realities of love and family ties that make this an especially great read. Shani Mootoo , who was born in Ireland and grew up in Trinidad before immigrating to Vancouver more than thirty years ago, now lives in the county.

Volunteers committed to keeping food bank going

The Picton United Church County Food Bank (PUCCFB) is and always has been an outreach of the church, under the umbrella of the mission and service Committee, to assist those in need in Prince Edward County. It was started 30 years ago by two very special members of the Picton United Church, Beth Thompson and Della Mae Gray and has continued

under the very capable and dedicated leadership of Marilyn Bradley and Pat Romkey. Charitable, non profit organizations and even churches have struggled through difficult economic times and on top of that had to adjust to comply with changing government regulations. In spite of these difficult times and changing demands the gen-

erosity of the donors and willingness of the volunteers was always there to meet the need. We, the volunteers, are continuously amazed by the generosity of this community which allows this very important outreach to continue. Until a new director is put in place the remaining volunteers will continue the work of the PUCCFB on a weekly basis.

As over 20-year volunteers of the (PUCCFB) and members of the Picton United Church we would like the community to know how much we have enjoyed and will continue to enjoy our volunteer work there. We thank you for your continuing support. Seona Halsey Trudy Greer Jennifer Dulmage

Be wary of expanding ability to sell beverage alcohol

So you want to privatize The Beer Store. Be careful what you wish for. Ontario Hydro was the best utility in the world. It was decided to privatize the corporation and now we pay through the nose for electricity. The province built a toll highway and then sold it for a pittance. It is now a cash cow for out of province owners that can raise rates at a whim. Don’t use Quebec as an example. Quebec wants to keep people happy in their misery so they put very little

tax on alcohol based products. I lived in Alberta when that province privatized liquor and beer sales. Alberta had some of the best stores in Canada but they were dismantled and now most liquor/beer stores are located in low rent plazas making an environment that makes you wary to enter. The price of product, just as in every other province except Quebec, jumped radically and selection dropped. A large percentage of all stores in Alberta are owned by one private company so

what’s different other than higher prices. The provincial government will continue to collect tax on beer sales, the breweries will still produce beer at a profit and justifiably so, the addition of private outlets will only add another layer of cost to the overall product price. As well, I don’t want my grandchildren hanging around the outside of a convenience store late at night and having access to alcohol bought by someone of age. By the way, what makes

you think The Beer Store will remain, they haven’t in other provinces. As for the craft breweries, the convenience stores, because of limited space, will only sell the most popular brands, just like they do in the other provinces, so no craft or low volume beer. Warren Grimm West Lake

(Editor’s note: The Beer Store monopoly is already controlled by three private corporations. The LCBO is publicly run.)

Councillors should take seriously the oath they swore

Oaf in office or oath of office? There seems to be a great deal of confusion amongst municipal officials as to their duties and behavior and interactions with regards to their constituents and the public in general. I believe it is also important for the public, (constituents) to understand

what the elected official swore and oath to: “I will faithfully, to the best of my ability, perform the duties and responsibilities of my office and will not allow any direct or indirect monetary or other personal or private interests to influence my conduct or affect my personal duties in public matters”

All decisions made while in Public Office should be measured against this sworn oath. I have seen, and heard of some totally illogical and irrational things done in council driven by favourtism and nepotism..Lets hope the next council will take time to reinforce the intent of the

sworn oath. There are obligations to swearing an oath and appropriate consequences. Gross negligence or willful neglect are not covered under errors and omissions.

In response to Liz Bernstein's “A plea for turbine support,” Gazette, May 8. Turbines are installed for purely selfish purposes guaranteeing a land owner income on a property that otherwise won't support itself. Whether or not an area

has Wynne turbines installed is up to the provincial government and local folk have no say. The turbine people got their foothold in the Chatham and Kingston area and their product is a blight on the landscape. When the users of given energy i.e.

Toronto or Ottawa start installing turbines or gas plants in their areas, that is, directly in their home sites, then we will see what the insolated tree huggers think. No one here wants to destroy the earth and didn't you come here to see the wild

life. We are installing acres of solar panels, recycle and keep our island green. Don't push your government town attitude down our throats.

Bloomfield pond attracts 115 anglers Perseverance pays off as young fisherman goes down to the wire AdAm BrAmBurger

Staff writer

Cold winds blew across the Bloomfield Millpond Park around noon Saturday, bringing a chill to the air, and ominous clouds hovered nearby hinting of rain yet to come. That didn’t bother William Duncan, nor did word from trusted senior angling advisor and accomplice John that there just didn’t seem to be any fish biting thus far this year. William decided he would scrap his modern bait and ask John to help hook a classic worm on the line as he and his brother Jack cast lines for fish under some tree cover just at the edge of the cattails on the pond. The time was dwindling and many other families were packing p after their involvement in the BloomfieldHallowell Recreation Committee’s annual Cops, Kids, and Canadian Tire fishing derby. William waited and waited. Just when the rest of the people were about to congregate to hear the day’s prize winners, he came running toward the playground with a sealed plastic bag in hand and a huge smile across his face. He’d open the bag for whomever would stop and there, he’d reveal a brown catfish — likely generously measured at about 10 centimetres in length — floating in a small pool of water scooped from the pond. Duncan walked right up to councillor Barry Turpin to show the fruits of his labour and he ended up walking away with a big trophy for his catch, just as Turpin was about to wrap up the event for another year. It’s the type of experience that could make a life-long fisherman out of the young boy, and it is also the reason that volunteers put so much into the one-day event. Turpin said this year there were 115 children who signed up to participate. “It was a success,” he

Ace Anglers Joining Duncan as winners on Saturday were, from left, Jordon Derush (biggest fish), Kira Parks (smallest fish), Alex DeMille (most fish), and Jacob McFaul (strangest catch). (Adam Bramburger/Gazette staff)

said. “The weather kind of held out for us and everyone really had a good time.” Turpin said often the fishing is a little bit slow as the water doesn’t warm up until later in the year, but he indicated the recreation committee does try to make it easier to catch fish. “We try to do restocking with the Ministry of Natural Resources regularly and we have to arrange for a fish stocking licence to do that,” he said. He added the committee also provides the technology to help the young anglers find their prized catch. Between the sponsors of the broader Kids, Cops, and Canadian Tire promotion, with Bob Izumi and Fishing Forever, and its own funds, the committee hands out a number of rod and reel sets each year. The derby was also lucky enough to have Jamie Forrester and the Picton Kiwanis supplying live bait for those that wished to use it. Turpin added that sponsors have allowed them to give each participant an even greater array of goodies

when participating. Through the promotion, the young anglers aged 12 and under can receive logoed hats or t-shirts as well as equipment, they can receive McDonalds coupons, and candy courtesy of County Treasures and More. Picton Home Hardware provided prizes for winning teams, while NoFrills helped stock the barbecue. “We get a lot of good local support for this event,” said Turpin. “There are also a lot of committee members willing to help out.” He added often parents and grandparents take part and have just as much fun as the youth they’re assisting throughout the day. This year, prizes went to Jordon Derush for the longest fish for a 22-inch pike, Kira Parks for smallest fish with a four-and-a-half inch minnow, Alex DeMille for most fish, Duncan and Alana Chapman for catching catfish, and Jacob McFaul and Alberton Graham for strangest catches. They hauled in a cutting tool and a toad and an old newspaper respectively.

Next month Prince Edward County will take part in a national campaign to commemorate the First World War. Municipal staff will be planting 100 poppies at Shire Hall this month as a reminder of those who lost their lives fighting in the First World War. The County joins several other towns and cities in commemorating the 100th anniversary of the beginning of the First World War. The war began on July 28, 1914 and lasted until Nov. 11, 1918. More than nine million lost their lives. The planting of the poppies first came at the request of Cobourg resident Theresa Glover, who wrote to mayors of several Canadian municipalities asking them to plant 100 poppies in their public

parks and green spaces to recognized the centennial. The requests have since become a national campaign with both municipalities and individual residents planting the flower, which has served as a symbol of remembrance since 1920. The use of the poppy was inspired by the First World War poem “In Flanders Fields” written by Canadian physician Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae. McCrae was inspired to compose the work after presiding over the funeral of fellow soldier and friend Alexis Helmer who died during the Second Battle of Ypres. “We gladly and soberly support the 100 poppies initiative,” said Mayor Peter Mertens . “These flowers will act as a reminder to the entire community of the sacrifices made by soldiers during the First World War — and in the 100 years since.”

Small Pond Arts banner raising marks five years of operation on Clarke Rd.

Small Pond Arts will celebrate five years in Prince Edward County this month with their latest banner-raising party. All are invited to the annual event, which will take place on Sunday, May 25 at 3 p.m. at 337 Clarke Road just outside of Picton. Small Pond Arts owners Krista Dalby and Milé Murtanovski will again raise a banner to the spring season, this time marking their fifth year in Prince Edward County. In celebration of the milestone, Small Pond Arts sent out a call for submissions for a guest artist to create this year's banner. The winner of the competition was Leanne Shea Rhem — a textile artist from Toronto. Rhem was awarded a two-week residency, as well as an honorarium to be put toward materials. The design will be kept secret until the reveal, but Dalby and Murtanovski said Rhem's design was the clear winner both because of the concept and because Rhem's understanding of the inten-

tion behind the art project. “I am very interested in community art projects and art that is freely available to the public,” Rhem said in her application to Small Pond. “By raising a different banner every year you are able to inspire the surrounding communities of Prince Edward County to engage in artistic expression by displaying public art; I would love to be a part of that.” Rhem graduated from the Ontario College of Art and Design (OCAD) University in 2011 and has since participated in a number of exhibitions, collaborative projects, and community initiatives. Her work includes a series of wearable sculptures focusing on aspects of female experience through the use of fibrebased materials and techniques. The party kicks off at 3 p.m. with the banner raising at 4 p.m. A potluck dinner will follow at 6 p.m.

I was contacted recently by Norma Bruce who is the president of the Prince Edward County Shuffleboard Club which was founded in 2008. Who knew there was even such a group? What a great way to meet new people and get some exercise for both your body and your brain. The club starts to play May 22 and the season runs until Aug. 28. They meet every Thursday at the Picton Arena at 1 p.m. They can’t start their season any earlier because it depends on the ice coming out and the floor drying up. The local shuffleboard club was started by Durelle and Bish Kowacz. They came home from Florida and decided that the County needed an outlet for seniors to play shuffleboard. It started at the curling club, and, according to Bruce, these two people worked on their own, spending many days on their hands and knees painting the courts. “We owe everything to them,” says Bruce. You don’t have to be an expert shuffler to play with the local club. They welcome everyone and if you don’t know how to play they’re happy to teach you. The local group likes to have fun. Last year there were 46 members and there’s room for lots more people to join. Membership is $15 and weekly play is $3. They take a break for coffee and cookies – and socializing -- during the afternoon. If tournaments are your thing, and you get good enough as a shuffler, there are lots of opportunities. In fact Picton has hosted two Provincial Tournaments, one in 2011 and again last year in 2013. The tournament brought shufflers from all over the province of Ontario and many were impressed with what we have to offer in the County. Bruce says “I began play-

Roc’n Revue puts young talent in spotlight at Regent for a good cause Fundraising show raises $6,500 for youth centre programming AdAm BrAmBurger Staff writer

Those associated with the Recreation Outreach Centre (ROC) in Picton would say they had the best fundraising

event imaginable Thursday. Indeed, the Roc’n Revue at the Regent Theatre was a big hit as there were more than 200 people in the seats and that translated into more than $6,500 that will

be used to provide programming at the youth centre and in Prince Edward County schools into the next school year. It wasn’t just a financial thing, however, as the ROC’s program facilitator Hilary Fennell explained. “We’d been talking a lot about it and we realized, ultimately, that we’ve got to work directly with the kids,” she said. “We could stand up and say what we do, but that spoke volumes.” Fennell said the ROC decided its best appeal to the community would be to show the impact its programs have and to showcase the abilities of local youth by putting them on stage in the spotlight. “Many of them had never performed on the Regent stage,” she said. “That brought a lot of energy and it really empowered them.” Some 13 different acts were recruited to be part of a program with even more acts as collaboration was the name of the game. There was song, dance, poetry, and drama to offer. Fennell noted that many of the young people involved with the ROC had been rehearsing chorus

The taste of fresh herbs in favourite recipes is reason to grow them

Why grow fresh herbs — especially when dried herbs and some fresh herbs are available all year in your local super-market? Once you have tasted fresh mint sauce, (made with the correct mint) on your roast lamb, fresh sage in your sage and onion stuffing with duck or turkey, fresh tarragon tucked in the cavity of your grilled trout, a sprig of lemon balm in your iced tea, a bouquet garni brush used to brush oil on your grilling beef, even a selection of fragrant herbs in a vase on your dinner table, I am sure you will want to grow a few of this easily

grown, huge range of plants. To make a bouquet garni brush, take a selection of herbs: Rosemary, sage, thyme et cetera. tie together, like a twig broom. Herbs are often put together with spices, but they are very different. Herbs are the flowers, leaves, stems and roots of plants grown in moderate climates. Spices are nuts, fruits, bark, seeds

etc. of shrubs and vines grown in tropical climates. Herbs are often divided into groups; Culinary, fragrant/ornamental, medicinal/insecticidal, although these groups are not very rigid. It is not necessary to have a formal herb garden or a knot garden, herbs grow almost anywhere that you have a good friable soil and sunshine, in a mixed border, container, vegetable garden, hanging basket. Herbs do not need very fertile soil, just a little compost. In fact lush growing herbs, do not have the flavour or scent of plants that have been grown in less rich soil. If you want to pick a few stems for your cooking, then a site near your kitchen, or a container near your door that you can easily reach in all weathers would be best. Most herbs are very decorative and look attractive in a mixed or perennial border. Parsley, purple basil, chives, thyme all make nice edging, lavender, fennel, sage, especially the variegated varieties look well in the middle section. If you are looking for a nice tall plants to make a background of plants that don’t need much staking then costmary, tansy, dill, bergamot, lovage, comfrey, will all give good results. If you have a large hosta bed, under planting with

sweet woodruff will not only keep weeds from growing but help to keep slugs away. Herbs in containers on your deck are very attractive, but also provide delightful aroma when you pass, strawberry jars, in particular the large ones make culinary herbs convenient. Make sure that you put a perforated tube, full of vermiculite down the middle of the jar to ensure even watering. Don’t forget to give the pot a quarter turn every day or so to ensure all the plants receive the same amount of sunshine. A large bay tree, or rosemary will provide a great plant on your deck and will continue to look good indoors in the winter. Growing herbs in your vegetable garden has many advantages, companion planting being one. Companion planting is growing certain plants that can benefit others when planted in close proximity. This subject will be dealt with in later articles. There are so many herbs to talk about; this article can only give a taster. Here are some suggestions for herbs that grow well in the county.


n Basil. Do not plant outside until the temperature is plus-7 or 8 regularly at

night. But you can start the seeds inside. There are many varieties, choose one you like, and enjoy freshly made pesto. n Calendulas or English marigolds. Seeds germinate easily; this plant is a companion for many others as it deters insects. Petals can be used in salads and can be used in place of saffron when dried. n Parsley technically is a bi-annual, but tastes very bitter the second year and does not always over-winter. Your choice of flat or curly depends on your taste. Grow as a border plant or in containers very good in strawberry jars. n Borage: the young leaves/flowers are good in salad. n Dill: this grows easily from seed and will seed itself for next year. n Stevia seed is expensive, but it makes an excellent substitute for sugar fresh or dried. n Nasturtiums, although not strictly a herb, the seeds germinate easily, I like the Alaska variety. The leaves are variegated the flowers pale colours. You can eat the leaves which are peppery, edible flowers can be filled with cream cheese etc. When dried, the seeds can be added to pickles. n Chamomile can be very invasive as it self-seeds, it is usually used for teas. If you know your Beatrix Potter you will remember that

Peter Rabbit’s mother gave him this to drink at bed time to help him sleep. n The bronze variety looks of fennell good in a border, both the flowers and seeds taste of aniseed and go well with fish.


n Mint is a waterside plant is very invasive The English variety Mentha spicata is what you need for mint sauce, although the chocolate variety is great with ice cream, especially if you ”paint” one side of the leaf with melted chocolate. I suggest you grow it in an old blue box or large container, sunk to the rim. It does really well on the edge of a stream or pond. n Chives are easy to grow I like the garlic variety which has flat leaves and flowers in autumn you can eat leaves and flowers. n Lemon balm is a type of mint it is not invasive. Use it for teas, especially iced tea. n Thyme offers many varieties. The French has the best flavour but is rather straggly. The lemon varieties are good with fish. n Lovage is a very tall plant that can be used in place of celery. The hollow stems make great stirring sticks for Caesars, especially when topped with a sprig of leaves. n Oregano is very hardy and easy to grow I prefer the kaliteri variety, an essential for pizza and Italian cooking. n Winter savoury. Although not as much flavour as the summer variety, it is hardy. n French tarragon. This cannot be grown from seed, the seed is always Russian tarragon, very invasive and tastes like grass. The French is available as plants, grows slowly but over-winters well. n Salad Burnett is not well known in Ontario, but very common in England. It tastes of cucumber and is great for salads, especially good if you cannot eat regular cucumber. To gather herbs at their most flavourful pick “after the dew has left and before the sun has heated up” If you would like to try some unusual herbs I suggest that you contact www., 1-800-6684372 in Goodwood. Their catalogue of thousands of herbs from around the world is a joy and full of information. They have a postal service, but a visit to their greenhouses is very special. At our plant sale at 8.30 a.m. May 24 in the Metro parking lot, there will be a leaflet with suggestions of different things to do with herbs. For more information on this article contact our web site and I will be pleased to help.

County InspIred Green Peach founders, from left, Jennifer MacKenzie and Erin DeMille are bringing their new line of handmade homeware inspired by Prince Edward County to the Wellington Farmers’ Market this Saturday from 8–1 p.m. (Submitted photo)

New duo offers handmade homeware Chad Ibbotson

Staff writer

A new local business promises handmade, high-quality homeware with Prince Edward County-inspired designs. New county business Green Peach will be launching their first homeware collection this Saturday, May 17 at the Wellington Farmers' Market. The Green Peach Summer 2014 collection will include county wine totes, market totes, beach totes, kiddo's totes, kiddo's sun tents, beach blankets, and summer napkins. Co-founders Erin DeMille and Jennifer MacKenzie design and create each of the products by hand and both bring experience in fashion, textiles, and design. Green Peach (an amalgam of the duo's favourite colours) looks to provide consumers with lifestyle and homeware products that reflect the beauty of Prince Edward County, said DeMille. While both are relatively new to Prince Edward County, DeMille said the pair saw their business as a “back to our roots” venture. “I was from Belleville and I was in Toronto for about 10 years, and for (MacKenzie) she always lived in Montreal, but her roots were here,” she said. “We thought we would bring a little bit of the modern, city stuff back to the county that we enjoyed and saw there.” She said the pair met about two years ago and clicked as both enjoyed similar backgrounds in design and fashion. The high-quality aspect of the product line was something DeMille said could only be achieved by creating the products by hand. “We both had worked in fields that leaned towards that mass-produced, manufactured thing. Both of us have a high attention to detail and were frustrated by the quality of stuff like that,” said DeMille. She said that idea of com-

ing back home brought with it thoughts of improved quality of life that translated into study, longer-lasting products. “We're really committed to products that will last and are sturdy and might be around in 20 or 30 years. Handmade is really the only way to go for products like that,” she said. DeMille said the 2014 line will be a mix of fashion and homeware — combining both MacKenzie's and DeMille's expertise respectively. “We decided we were going to meld our fields and test the waters a little bit to see how everything went — that lent itself to the beach and cottage kind of area that

we're focusing on,” she said. “The bags focus on holiday and beach and I would say the homeware is fun, relaxed, and laid back and lend themselves to the rustic county thing we were envisioning.” She said the colour schemes are very much inspired by Prince Edward County, with muted tones of farmers' fields. The green and peach namesake colours also figure in prominently, said DeMille. “We're taking a cue from the surroundings,” she said. DeMille said she and MacKenzie are both excited for the launch on Saturday. She said both are familiar with the Wellington Farmers' Market and felt it was a natural place to start. “We're just really excited to use this business as a way to meet people and support the community,” she said. “It's going to be really fun and we want people to really like the products and we're really interested in hearing feedback.” The Wellington Farmers' Market takes place at 243 Main Street in Wellington on Saturdays from 8 a.m. —1 p.m.

The club partnered with Picton’s Ten Thousand Villages store, one of a network of 36 outlets in North America that has been run as a project spearheaded by St Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, featuring hand-

crafted items purchased directly from artists in developing countries through long-term fair trade arrangements. The store brought some of its displays to the school over a three-day period last week and students were able to buy the goods. In turn, Ten Thousand Villages donated 10 per cent of its sales at PECI

to Make Poverty History to help schools it supports in Kenya. “It was a perfect partnership,” said Rev. Lynne Donovan at St. Andrew’s. “The youth have a real passion for global justice. And some of them have amazing marketing skills.” -Staff

Bottoms Up! “So tell me something,” asked the woman I ran into at the dentist’s office. “Why did you take the pews out of your church?” Her voice was mildly accusatory as if we had committed some ancient transgression. But truth is she is one of about a dozen people who have cornered me in that same fashion since St. Andrew’s renovated its building four years ago. At this point I have my response down to a fine art. “We wanted to create a multi-functional space to share with the community,” I say. “We want to Rev. Lynne Donovan support endeavours that contribute to a healthier world.” And so we’ve welcomed those who practice yoga, meditation, sustainable agriculture; we’ve turned our sanctuary into an art gallery and a cabaret; we’ve sold items on behalf of Ten Thousand Villages. And now we are preparing to host a single-malt tasting event to kick off our anniversary weekend. I am reminded of one of my favourite Stephen Covey quotes, “The main thing is to keep the main thing the main thing.” It is quite astounding when discussing the church how often we get caught in conversations that have nothing to do with “the main thing.” If the life of Jesus is any indication of what “the main thing” is about then we need to think again about community and inclusion and breaking bread and drinking wine TOGETHER. Yet this inclination towards inclusivity may have been what got Jesus into trouble: “But when the teachers of religious law who were Pharisees saw him eating with tax collectors and other sinners, they asked his disciples, “Why does he eat with such scum?” (Mark 2:16) The earliest followers of the Way were known for eating and drinking together in a world that was deeply divided by class, gender and religion. The most recent scholarship suggests that this kind of inclusive meal predates Christian worship. In fact, it was Christian worship. So we exchanged pews for comfortable chairs so that we can gather around tables to eat and drink together after the example of Jesus. And we have stirred in some activities that promote curiosity, creativity and courage. But all of these things point to the main thing: the creation of a Circle of Friends who supports the principles of hospitality and diversity.

Council removes Young-Woodward heritage designation Efforts to form a trust to purchase 1815 home stalled, prompting request Chad Ibbotson Staff writer

Heritage took a backseat to a resident's property rights on Tuesday evening as council voted to remove the YoungWoodward House from the Prince Edward County heritage register as a listed property. The months-long discussion around the house came to a close on Tuesday as resident Mark Woodward again came to council asking to have the property delisted following several unsuccessful attempts to find an alternative solution. The vote to remove the property from the register passed by a margin of 11-5 with councillors Jamie Forrester, Alec Lunn, Brian Marisett, Janice Maynard, and Dianne O'Brien voting against. Having a heritage property listed simply gives council 60 days to seek out alternatives if a demolition permit application for the property is received by the municipality, but Woodward argued the listing has made it difficult for his elderly mother to sell the home. The costs to repair the home are also a hindrance. The home – located at 891 County Rd. 11 – was built in 1815 by Colonel Henry Young, the first United Empire Loyalist to settle in Prince Edward County. Last September the Prince Edward Heritage Ad-

tIme to move on Mark Woodward was before Prince Edward County council again Tuesday night, stating that he has exhausted many options and wished to delist the Young-Woodward Home. (Chad Ibbotson/Gazette staff)

visory Committee (PEHAC) advised council against removing the property from the register and had asked for more time to work with the Woodward to find a solution. Edwin Rowse of E.R.A. Architects had also attempted to form a trust to purchase the house, but on Tuesday Woodward said all those efforts had stalled and again asked for the home to be removed. “I was prepared to move forward with the request to delist in November 2013, when E.R.A. architect Edwin Rowse contacted me and requested time to investigate the formation of a trust which would have taken over the house with a severance,” said Woodward. “Mr. Rowse has done a lot of work for us, however he's been unsuccessful in gaining support from others to form a trust.” Woodward said County chief administrative officer Merlin Dewing has also made numerous attempts to

find a solution to no avail. Additionally, Woodward said regulations under the provincial policy statement would make it impossible to sever a lot to build a new house on. “During my last meeting with the planning department it was made clear to me that should a severance be approved for the house, that there could be no residence permitted on the remaining as per the provincial policy statement,” he said. “This came as a surprise after months of effort to save the home and allow my mother to sell her waterfront land at fair market value.” The regulations would only allow the severed property to be used as farmland, he said. Woodward said the family has been patient, but would like to move on. “We've provided various groups adequate time to pursue alternatives and find solutions that would meet my mother's needs in selling her property and meet vari-

ous heritage enthusiasts',” said Woodward. “... We've done our due diligence, we desire to exercise our property rights without interference.” Councillor Terry Shortt was among those who supported Woodward's request. “(Woodward) has been very patient. He's listened to the options that have come forward, he's made efforts to deal with those in a favourable manner and he's been met with nothing but roadblocks at every turn,” said Shortt. Shortt said it was never council's intention to force heritage property owners to list their properties or to force them to stay listed. “As far as the importance of the property, I realize the historic value, but apparently there are others who don't because even when there was an attempt to put a trust fund into place to address this property they couldn't find enough interest,” Shortt said. “If these properties are this important to the province they should be putting some financial means behind this.” Forrester was opposed to removing the property from the register. He said the Athol landmark could be threatened by demolition. “This is probably one of the most significant houses in Prince Edward County and basically we've got nothing to do. We can't stop it and we could have a demolition in front of us in four months,” he said. Forrester said council should have done everything in their ability to try to sever the land and save the house.

The Picton Gazette Tall ship adventure from Napanee to Picton to be offered next month

For one night only next month, guests can get a look at what it would have been like to welcome tall ships on Picton’s harbour. After spending several days at Napanee’s inaugural Riverfront Festival, the St. Lawrence II will set sail for a once-in-a-lifetime course to Prince Edward County. Aboard the 70-foot wooden vessel, June 15, guests will hear about the region’s maritime history from Brigatine Inc. business manager David More while helping to navigate the ship. Lunch will be provided on board. In Picton, guests will have a threecourse dinner created by chef Michael Sullivan and an overnight stay at the Merrill Inn. After a hot breakfast at the inn the next morning, historian Peter Lockyer of History Lives Here will take visitors on a customized bus tour throghout the county with lunch at the Agrarian, shopping in Bloomfield, and a visit to the Black Prince Winery. Return transportation to Napanee would be provided by coach bus. The all-inclusive tour is being booked for $545 per person based on double occupancy through

Committee-of-the-whole meetings to stay at 1 p.m. chad IbbotSon

St. Lawrence II

This Kingston-based tall ship, usually used as a youth training program, will be available for one history-themed cruise June 15.

(Submitted photo) It’s the type of history tourism that Lockyer has long advocated for. “ The St. Lawrence II is a regional treasure,� says Peter Lockyer. “ Packaging the vessel together with our inns, fine food, wine, shopping, and local history make this a world-class travel adventure. This year’s trip is a pilot project. But we’re hoping the St. Lawrence becomes a fixture of life in Picton harbour in the future bringing heritage consumers from the world to our community on a regular basis.�

Committee-of-the-whole meetings will stay at their current 1 p.m. start time. At the April 24 committee-of-the-whole meeting Picton councillor Bev Campbell put forth a proposal to change the start of the meetings to 7 p.m. as a pilot for the final 10 committee meetings of the term. That motion lost in a 10-4 vote. On Tuesday evening Hallowell councillor Heather Campbell pulled the motion from committee and put forward an amendment to change the start time to 5 p.m. but again the motion lost, this time in a 12-4 recorded vote with both councillors Campbell, councillor Jim Dunlop and councillor Brian Marisett voting in favour. Councillor Bev Campbell had said at the April meeting that pushing back the start time would open committee discussions to a wider audience. “Committee of the whole is where council conducts most of its discussion and debate around issues, it's the meat of what we do,� Campbell said at the


meeting. “Many are unable to attend and learn what is going on because it falls right in the middle of the work day.� However, the majority of councillors who spoke Tuesday cited the balance of afternoon committee meetings and evening council meeting. Councillor Dianne O'Brien was among those who were against pushing back the committee start time. O'Brien said she spoke to taxpayers prior to Tuesday's meeting to gauge their sentiments on the question. “The gist of what people I've spoken to is they believe now that we have the best of both worlds,� she said. “We have our committee of the whole in the early afternoon, they can get to it if it fits their schedule. We have council in the evening and again that fits their schedule and that's what they do. We never have a problem, if there's an issue people want to address, with filling that gallery.� O'Brien said holding one meeting in the afternoon and the other in the evening is “democracy at its highest.�

Councillor Kevin Gale agreed. “I'm going to stick with what I said at the committee-of-the-whole meeting. Here we are at night, it's a beautiful day outside, the roads are clear it's sunny and warm, it's a council meeting which is half of what council does and

we've got three people,� he said. Councillor Janice Maynard said a 5 p.m. start time wouldn't be any better than the 7 p.m. start time suggested at the April committee meeting. She said it might even be less feasible. “I just won't support it,� she said.

Panthers’ midget sprinter sets meet mark in 200m Keniel Warren captures two races at Michelle Foley Invitational as PECI track and field team prepares for Bay of Quinte competition Jason Parks

Staff writer

A record fell at the Michelle Foley Bay of Quinte Invitational Track and Field Meet last week, but don't look toward the usual suspect.

With PECI's standout track star Cole Norton skipping last week's tune up at Mary Anne Sills Park, it was time for another Panther to shine. Midget boy Keneil Warren showed there could be track dominance outside

Norton as he captured both the 100-metre and 200metre sprints, setting a new Bay of Quinte Invitational record in latter event. Warren, a St. Greg's product, won in a photo finish over East Northumberland's Ben Sinder with a

time of 10.50. In the 200 m, Warren shattered senior teammate Mitch Reid's 2011 mark he set as midget runner (24.75) with time of 26.67. “He had a great first outing, it was a real solid start for his season,” PECI track

and field coach Bob Bell said.. The aforementioned Reid was PECI's other top finisher as he placed fourth in the senior boys’ long Jump with a mark of 5.39 m and was the top Bay of Quinte Conference finisher

in the event. PECI was back at in soggy conditions yesterday at the Bay of Quinte Track and Field Championship at Sills Park. Check out next week's Gazette for complete coverage of the event.

forward Ethan Ashley factored into the scoring last weekend as the club made a strong showing at the Frank Sobil Classic Spring Soccer Tournament in Oshawa. (Submitted photo)

In spite of it serving as a spring tune up, the Prince Edward County Soccer Association Under-13 PRZ Paintball Eagles showed mid-season form at this weekend's Frank Sobil Classic Spring Soccer Tournament in Oshawa. Hosted by the Oshawa Kicks organization, the Eagles ran a perfect 3-0-0 record through the preliminary round to earn the number one overall seed heading into Sunday afternoon's play downs. Unfortunately for the locals, a Kingston United squad and some non-impartial officiating wound up dousing the the dreams of a championship in the

semi-finals. Competing in the six team premier division, Eagles skipper Andrew Houston liked what he saw from his squad in their first organized games in 2014. “They did exceptionally well considering it was their first tournament and we've got four new players on the roster from last season,” Houston said. Last year's Under-12 Eagles squad challenged for the top spot in the Southeast Ontario Soccer Association's ranks and this season's squad is looking to do the same. Outscoring their opposition a collective 12-0 through three games shows the local club is aiming to do just that.

Defensively, the Eagles were spot on, not surrendering a goals. The locals whitewashed the Aurora Stingers (5-0), Kingston United (3-0) and the host Oshawa Kicks (3-0) in succession.


“The goaltending was good, JackMacCool wasn't busy but he was solid on the shots that did get through,” Houston said. “Overall, I liked our game defensively. As soon as we lose the ball in the offensive zone, that's where the defence starts and the team is really picking that up and their defensive play was exceptional hence no goals scored in the round robin.”

After defeating Kingston United a day prior, the Eagles just couldn't get the bounces and were shaded by the eventual champions 2-1 Sunday afternoon. The Eagles got scoring from Ethan Ashley, Bailey Maracle, Joey Monroe, Gabe Goad and Devon Wilton. The Eagles regular season gets underway May 21 when they travel to Belleville. Their first home game of the 2014 SOSA season is May 28, 2014 when they host Kingston United. Kick off is at 6:30 p.m. The SOSA loop also features teams from Kingston (Cataraqui, Pegasus, and United), Quinte West, Peterborough,and Portland,

The OPP says that in 2013, off-road vehicle fatalities reached a four-year high of 20 and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re hoping that number will decrease this year Of those 13 fatalities, the OPP reported that some 13 involved a lack of helmet use, while nine involved alcohol consumption. The OPP is encouraging people who use the recreational vehicles this Victoria Day weekend to stay smart and to always wear

helmets. Those who have been drinking should not operate the vehicles. Police also noticed that motorcycle deaths increased last year to 26, with far too many occurring because of impaired, aggressive, or distracted driving. They urge all motorists, including motorcycle users to be cautious.

ARIES (Mar 21/Apr 20) No matter how challenging it may be, slow down and give yourself time to reflect, Aries. You're always on the go, but it's important to slow down every now and then. TAURUS (Apr 21/May 21) Taurus, steer clear of added responsibilities this week, as you already have enough on your plate. Some alone time might be worth its weight in gold. GEMINI (May 22/Jun 21) You're not easily overwhelmed by intense people or things, Gemini. Use this resilience to sail through a particularly challenging task that gets sent your way this week. CANCER (Jun 22/Jul 22) There is no need to figure out all of the answers in the next few days, Cancer. If something is on your mind, then take your time to weigh all of your options. LEO (Jul 23/Aug 23) It could be challenging to be playful and lighthearted this week, Leo. Take every situation seriously and give ample thought to each and every decision you must make. VIRGO (Aug 24/Sept 22) Make the best of a delicate situation at work, Virgo. Although you may not be ready for more responsibility, your reaction will be noticed by your bosses.

But you cannot run away from your responsibilities this week. Just hold out a little longer. AQUARIUS (Jan 21/Feb 18) Your finances seem to be a constant source of aggravation, Aquarius.

PISCES (Feb 19/Mar 20) Pisces, your energy level will be quite high, making it vital for you to do something productive before your stamina slows down.

Dukes back on ice with development camp this weekend Jason Parks

Staff writer

The Wellington Dukes are back at it this weekend with their annual spring development camp at Essroc Arena. Close to 60 players from all over North America will be in attendance and looking to impress Dukes brass. Head coach and general Manager Marty Abrams said the early camp usually sets up the club's main training camp in August. “This early camp gives us a chance to get some of the evaluating done so we can get right down to business at our late August camp. Players should arrive ready to compete and battle if they want to be recognized and invited back,” he said. Among those looking to impress are 18-year-old forward Nick DeVito who played for the South Kent Selects last season. Another US-Born player looking to make a name for himself is Joseph Deluca who suited up of for the Jersey Hitmen of the United States Premier Hockey League last season. Players are on the ice on

Saturday (10-1 p.m. and 2-5 p.m.) and Sunday (9-12 p.m.) Also of note, the Wellington Dukes are taking part in a spring hockey project called the Central Development Hockey League. In addition to the Wellington prospect club, the nine team loop features prospect clubs from the Central Canadian Junior Hockey League including Cornwall, Nepean, Carlton Place and St. Lazare, Quebec. Last weekend, the Dukes won both their games, taking down the St. Lazare Flyers 4-1 on Saturday and the Carlton Place Canadians 5-4 on Sunday. Shaw Boomhower, 15, leads the Dukes in scoring through two games with four points (two goals + two assists). Wellington will play their home games at the Wally Dever Arena in Belleville and host the Nepean Raiders Friday evening at 7:00 p.m. For a complete schedule, visit the web site /view/cdhl.

Baseball Panthers mow through league tournament with a pair of lopsided wins

The PECI Baseball Panthers were able to use Monday’s tournament in Melrose as a way to get their younger players involved in all aspects of the game. It appears that learning experience didn’t hurt the squad any when it came to results either. In the first game of the day Monday, the Panthers hammered St. Paul 20-1. Andrew Dayton picked up the win on the mound with both Max Manlow and John McHugh tossing innings in relief. Later in the day, the Pan-

thers beat the Moira Trojans by a 12-0 mark. Pat McPherson started the game and gave up no hits during his time in the game. Coach Matt Ronan was really pleased with the effort he saw. “Patrick has really come

on as a pitcher these last two years,” he said. “He’s a hard-throwing left hander and I’m sure he could play at the U.S. collegiate level, however he’s been accepted to attend RMC in the fall.” Ronan said Kevin Wil-

son and Dan Seguin were able to come in to pitch in relief that game. Ronan indicated the games were a testament to the amont of depth the team managed to put together. “It was a great opportu-

nity to get our younger guys in the lineup,” he said. “Young players like Matt Dobson and John McHugh showe up every day patiently waiting for an opportunity — today was their day and they impressed,” he said. “This

is a team that is 18 deep with 11 of them in Grades 9 and 10. They work hard during practice and it’s nice to see them come into games and contribute the way they did today.” -Staff

Pitch, Hit, and Run champs emerge Individual skill and all-around winners advance to sectionals

making contact Hayden Crowe has his eye on the ball as he looks to drive it up the centrefield gap during the Major League Baseball Pitch, Hit, and Run competition in Wellington Saturday. Crowe advanced for his running skill. (Adam Bramburger/Gazette staff)


On a blustery Saturday, young athletes gathered in Wellington for a chance to advance in the Pitch, Hit, and Run competition. There was some spirited competition between Prince Edward County minor baseball players to compete in the Major League Baseball-sanctioned skills competition for a chance to move on to regional competition. Among boys aged 7 and 8, Cooper Norton showed his strength as he won the pitching and hitting competitions and the overall title, while Jordan Doxtator was the fastest player moving around the base paths. The boys aged 9 and 10 division was among the most hotly-contested of the day as three different players took first place in an individual skill. Aaron McCambridge was tops on the mound, Aiden Reddick had the best hit off the tee, and Hayden Crowe won the battle of the base paths. Ultimately, however, it was Reddick who had the highest total score in the division. For boys aged 11 and 12, there wasn’t that much competition, ultimately, as Ben Wells swept the table and won in every category. Among boys aged 13 and 14, Dryden Norton led the way as he was the allaround champion and the top hitter and runner. Johnathon McHugh hit the strike zone the most in the pitching contest.

this season. Those competitors who won all-around or individual skills in any age category will get to go to the upcoming sectionals competition for a chance to move on to a competition at the Rogers Centre. All the sectionals winners deemed to be in the Toronto Blue Jays market will be compared and the top three finishers in each category would be invited to the final championships in Toronto.

The efforts of Come Alive Outside to lead cultural change in Prince Edward County are being noticed. In June 2011, the County was the first community in North America to declare itself a Come Alive Outside community and since, it has hosted numerous outdoor events to promote healthy, active living. That movement came about following a disturbing trend of statistics, including a rise in anti-depressants and stimulants prescribed to youth and a finding in the New England Journal of Medicine that suggests for the first time in two centuries the current generation of children in North America will have a shorter life expectancy than that of their parents. Landscape Ontario, the provincial green industry trade association (the largest of its kind in North America) noticed the success of Come Alive Outside and asked one of its chief proponents, the Scott Wentworth Landscape Group, to design its 2,200 square foot display at Canada Blooms and to feature the Come Alive Outside messaging used in the county as its theme.

RE/14 f THURSDAY, MAY 15, 2014

Did you know the average person moves 11.4 times in his or her lifetime? So says the most recent information from the U.S. Census Bureau. Various factors prompt people to move, from job opportunities to the desire to be closer to family members to wanting to live in a nicer climate. Moving is seldom an easy task, and is often ranked among the most stressful events in a person's life. The Employee Relocation Council cites it as the third most stressful event in life, following only death and divorce. That stress is only heightened when an entire family is making the move and an adult is starting a new job simultaneously. Despite the potential headaches involved with moving, an estimated 43 million Americans move each year. Those moving are often married couples between the ages of 25 and 44 with one or two children between the

5 tips for relocating the family

ages of 2 and 11. To make the process go more smoothly, consider the following tips. 1. Gradually introduce the concept of moving. Moving is a decision to be discussed with the whole family, even with young children who may not fully understand the process. Kids who are involved in looking at new homes or voicing opinions about which amenities they desire in a new neighborhood will feel empowered and in control. 2. Research potential new neighborhoods carefully. Finding a new residence is not entirely about buying a home that fits the family and its needs. It also is about finding a desirable neighborhood and community. A good school district is an important factor, as is proximity to recreation, local culture and transportation. Drive around a neighborhood during different times of the day to gauge how ac-

tive it is. Investigating businesses in the area can also help gauge the personality of a given neighborhood. 3. Work with an experienced agent. A real estate agent who is familiar with a variety of communities is a great asset. A buyer's agent will find homes and negotiate on the part of the buyer, having your best interests in mind. Because the agent will be paid a commission on a portion of the sale price, which doesn't come out of your pocket, it is in the real estate agent's best interest to help you find a home you can call your own. In addition, the agent will handle many of the tasks that may be overwhelming if you were doing them on your own, such as scouring available listings, waiting for inspections or filling out pertinent paperwork. With a real estate agent handling these tasks, families can remove some of the stress from the moving process.

4. Pack children's rooms last. Young children who see favorite items disappearing into bubble wrapping and boxes may start to feel anxious. It's not uncommon for preschoolers to act out or experience nightmares during the moving process. Maintain a sense of normalcy in the home as long as possible. Begin by packing nonessential items, only packing kids' items when your moving date is right around the corner. Let children say good-bye to familiar haunts and even to their old home. 5. Plan a school orientation. Take advantage of any programs schools offer to acclimate kids to their new environment. Kids often leave friends behind when moving to a new home. The faster they get back to a normal routine, the better it will be for them. Schools are where children will make new friends and participate in social occasions, so tour their new schools

before the school year begins, and meet with a few residents and current students to learn about special programs that may make a move less stressful for youngsters. Relocating a family can be stressful. But involving kids in the process and anticipating an adjustment period can help families adjust more easily. *Independently owned & operated
