In one night, what was a memorable season for the Picton Pirates became an unforgettable one. Wednesday, May 1 2013 will forever be remembered as the date the local Junior C hockey team defied the odds to win two games in one night and capture the Clarence Schmalz Cup as Ontario champions for the first time in the club's 24-year history. A week later Pirates coach and general manager Ryan Woodward said the win was just starting to sink in. “It still feels like it just ElatIon Picton Pirates executive past president John Perry, left, and Pirates coach and happened yesterday.

realized they'd need to step up their game. After being down 3–1 in their quarterfinal series against the Lakefield Chiefs, the Pirates won the series in seven games and swept the Alliston Hornets in the semi-final en route to a Schmalz Cup final matchup versus the Essex 73's. Woodward noted just how much it took to get to the final. “It's difficult and anyone who's gone through a long playoff run will understand. There are a lot of obstacles along the way that you have to deal with internally — injuries, adversity,” he said. “The guys really seemed to get stronger the further they went and you could start to see they realized they had an opportunity and they wanted to make the most of it.” The Pirates won the first game against Essex, but it was later contested and ruled to be replayed. They lost the second game at home. But the team didn't let up. They won both games in Essex setting up last Wednesday's thrilling series conclusion.

Increased provincial budget spending has MPP Smith seeing orange NDP influence on Liberal budget will mean increased debt for Ontario, little help for rural ridings, says local rep AdAm BrAmBurger Staff writer

Prince Edward-Hastings MPP Todd Smith is furious with last Thursday’s $127.6 -billion Ontario budget, but this time he isn’t seeing only red.

Instead of lashing out at the governing Liberals alone, Smith charged that many of the new spending projects were authored by the NDP and, ultimately, they are projects he says the province can’t afford.

''H3#*'/%4I"'J%$#0%@%*$'J%"#&%*1%'' ' ' ' ''

“Instead of getting the spending under control and eliminating the deficit, Premier Wynne has decided it would be much easier to go left. She’ll continue spending to appease the NDP rather than do the heavy lifting,� he said. Smith said the budget includes $13.6 billion in new spending, which will push Ontario’s deficit to about $12 billion next year and require it to pay over $11 billion just to service the interest on its debt. “That’s money that could go into services at Prince

Edward County Memorial Hospital, into home care, and into other services,� he said. Smith pointed to a few spending planks the NDP asked for directly, including a one-per-cent top up on OntarioWorks benefits, a target 15-per-cent reduction in auto insurance payments, and $260 million toward home care services. He charged the government has to have a plan in order to lower insurance rates, yet right now it is a subject of contention in committees. A five-day guarantee for home-care access also


requires more definition. Smith added he felt the NDP might be “naive� in supporting the Liberal budget without concrete plans noting that the Liberals couldn’t be trusted on their recent gas plant scandal, nor their promises not to raise taxes heading back to Dalton McGuinty’s first election. In short order, the government brought in the health-care premium, then the province’s largest income tax increase. Other spending priorities include an increase in employer health tax exemptions, which will cost $265 million over three years and a youth jobs creation program — also an NDP-supported program — that will cost $295 million over a twoyear period. Smith said he didn’t feel the budget provided much for rural Ontario or Prince Edward-Hastings itself. He mentioned a $100-million spending commitment for rural roads and bridges, but noted the Rednersville

Road reconstruction itself would cost $10 million and Belleville is spending $91 million itself on infrastructure this year. Smith added a $20 million fund for innovation among small and rural hospitals introduced in 2012 and made permanent this year wouldn’t stretch too far for capital projects and does nothing to increase base operating funds for those facilities. “It’s less than a drop in the bucket for rural Ontario,� he said. “There were no real Prince Edward-Hastings projects or anything in this region mentioned.� Smith added that for all of Wynne’s talk about a new process for green energy approvals, there was also no mention of changes introduced at budget time. Smith’s Progressive Conservatives have already stated they will not support the budget and attempt to force an election. The NDP has yet to indicate whether it will offer its support or not.

LHIN approves $190,000 in funding for residential hospice pilot site Three-bedroom facility to be reviewed in a year Chad Ibbotson

Staff writer

Hospice Prince Edward's residential hospice project officially received provincial backing on Tuesday. Representatives of the South East Local Health Integration Network (LHIN) announced early this week in Picton that the project has been approved for funding as a pilot site. The LHIN announced the approval of $190,000 toward the operation of clinical services at the site. The new three-bed Downes Avenue facility, which is set to open its doors this June, will provide end of life care in a home setting. A release from the LHIN says the site will offer nursing and personal support by the South East Community Care Access Centre (CCAC) contracted providers in partnership with Hospice Prince Edward. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The various aspects of this partnership will be formalized through a memorandum of understanding between the two organizations,â&#x20AC;? the release says. The release says building a sustainable hospice system is part of the South East LHIN's third Integrated Health Services Plan. South East LHIN chief operating officer Sherry Kennedy said on Tuesday that the $190,000 is expected to be annual, but will be evaluated as a one-year pilot to assess the need. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We'll be working with Hospice Prince Edward and

the CCAC to evaluate the program over the first year and identify the need going forward and determine what's the right amount to go forward with to support the number of patients and their families that you'll be seeing,â&#x20AC;? Kennedy said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We anticipate, based on experience elsewhere in the province, this is a very valued and valuable component of care â&#x20AC;Ś that this will be the amount going forward.â&#x20AC;? Kennedy said hospice services are growing increasingly important as the general population ages. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Those of us at the LHIN are keenly aware of the changing attitudes, changing needs, and the changing expectations of patients and their families when it comes to end of life care,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We understand that palliative care is one of the most complex areas of health care that we face today.â&#x20AC;? Kennedy said Hospice Prince Edward has been a driving factor as the LHIN

attempts to introduce similar pilot residential hospice sites across the region. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What we've done, through the Integrated Health Services Plan, is taken a look at our population and the needs as they move forward in age and looked at the provision of community hospice services that are available or not available today,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We worked with our partners to help support the development of three, hopefully, residential hospice sites across the region. I'm pleased to work with Hospice Prince Edward as the first.â&#x20AC;? Hospice Prince Edward executive director Nancy Parks said the funding announced will allow the residential hospice to provide advanced clinical serv-

ices for palliative clients. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hospice Prince Edward will also co-ordinate and partner with Quinte Health Link, the Prince Edward Family Health Team, and other community health services, hospital providers and HPE volunteers to provide excellent residential hospice care for the first time in this area,â&#x20AC;? she said. Parks said the generosity of donors allowed the organization to purchase the site of the home at 40 Downes Ave. in Picton. She said the home will have three patient rooms, a family room, a kitchen for family use and

barrier-free access. The downstairs area of the home will provide an agency home for Hospice Prince Edward. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This home is owned by our community for use by our community,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hospice Prince Edward's community campaign has a goal of raising a total of $875,000 to support the creation of the community residential hospice, its programming and its ongoing presence in the community. More than half â&#x20AC;&#x201D; $450,000 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; has been raised to date.â&#x20AC;? Hospice Prince Edward board president Birgit Langwisch said the organization

is grateful the LHIN approved funding for the residential hospice. She said she's proud of the volunteers and local community for their generosity in supporting the project through the organization's fundraising campaign. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In many ways I hadn't thought, before I got involved with hospice, how every single person that deals with us brings an important piece to it. It doesn't matter which part of that you do, what matters is that you do it. It means a great deal to us,â&#x20AC;? she said.

Downes Avenue project inspires participation chad ibbotson

Staff writer

There's clearly support for hospice in Prince Edward County. All the evidence one needs was on display on Sunday as more than 300 participants took part in the second annual Hike for Hospice in support of Hospice Prince Edward. The charity event raised more than $41,000 toward the operation of the new residential hospice which is set to open its doors this June. It was a beautiful, sunny Sunday afternoon for the walk, which took participants on two-kilometre, fivekilometre, and 10-kilometre routes through Picton. It also took participants past the Downes Avenue facility which will provide end of life care for up to three patients at a time. Hospice Prince Edward executive director Nancy Parks said it was a wonderful weekend for the organization. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The proceeds we raised were astonishing and, what's more amazing, we actually had more hikers hiking this year,â&#x20AC;? she said. Parks said so far this year's Hike for Hospice has raised $41,000, but donations continue to trickle in. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It's huge,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have large community support for this residential hospice. Our community really wants this hospice and they're showing it through their support.â&#x20AC;? Parks said that support is

coming from across the county â&#x20AC;&#x201D; from individuals, businesses, and service clubs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone is supporting this initiative and it's wonderful,â&#x20AC;? she said. She said the Hike for Hospice is something people want to volunteer for because they see the need for the services that a residential hospice can provide. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They see it as a need that they might possibly have, but also for their loved ones; for their families and their friends in this community,â&#x20AC;? she said. This year the family of Bob Willard â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a hospice volunteer who passed away this year â&#x20AC;&#x201D; lead the Hike for Hospice. There is no shortage of stories which exemplify the value hospice has to families. Those stories are far-reaching and are a driving factor behind many hikers' desire to

give back to the organization, Parks said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last year we had one of our donors, who donated in memory of his wife, lead the parade. Everybody that is in this hike is there for a reason,â&#x20AC;? Parks said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It could be because they support hospice, it could be because they're hiking in memory of someone that hospice supported. Everyone has a story of why they're hiking.â&#x20AC;? Parks thanked the community for all of their support, the volunteers who made it happen, and all the other groups who donated their time to make the event a success. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It takes a lot of time to put this type of event together,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We really want to thank everyone who was involved.â&#x20AC;? Linda Middleton â&#x20AC;&#x201D; who along with Anne Wait cochaired the organizing com-

mittee for the hike â&#x20AC;&#x201D; said everyone was pleased with the level of participation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The community has been behind this venture 100 per cent,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What a wonderful community we live in. It's just so great to see everyone so enthusiastic to continue to support this project.â&#x20AC;? She said organizations like Come Alive Outside, the Rotary Club of Picton, and massages from Trillium College therapists, as well as musical performances from Fraser Hardman, Jeanette Arsenault, Mark McGreevy, and Sam Hirst helped make the event special. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had lots of things that made it a family event,â&#x20AC;? she said. Middleton said events which engage residents serve as inspiration to donate or get involved. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When people participate like that they have some sense of ownership in the community hospice,â&#x20AC;? she said. The Family Health Team was the largest team contributor, bringing in close to $6,000 for the cause, while individual fundraisers Audrey Whitney and Denise Richmond each brought in over $1,500. Mayor Peter Mertens â&#x20AC;&#x201D; in a proclamation read by Picton councillor Bev Campbell â&#x20AC;&#x201D; declared May 5â&#x20AC;&#x201C;11 National Hospice Palliative Care Week in Prince Edward County.

■ Fishermen Morley Helmer and Charles Hudgin pulled in a 60-pound sturgeon from the waters off of Pt. Traverse. It was reported sturgeons usually also carried a high price per pound because of a lack of bones in the flesh. It was also reported that such a catch was extremely rare in local waters. ■ Former reeve W.A. Jones was the lone candidate to fill the spot left on Picton council by the deceased William Thibault. Jones’ lengthy municipal career was seen as an asset as the town council was working to keep a handle on an increasing tax rate. ■ In addition to running advertising in The Gazette, the Kellogg Company was trying to use product sampling as a way of marketing its cereal to local residents. With their newspaper, each household would receive a sample package of Corn Flakes to try. ■ St. Gregory The Great Catholic Church held a special service outdoors to bless parishioners’ automobiles and call for the intercession of St. Christopher.

There is a 60-per-cent chance of showers and a risk of an afternoon thunderstorm today.

There is a high likelihood of rain showers projected in Friday’s weather forecast.

There is a 40-per-cent chance of rain showers projected for Saturday.

A mix of sun and cloud with a 30-per-cent chance of rain showers is projected Sunday.

Above this maize of wildflowers will be this almost phantasmagoria in the branches – up to 25 species of warblers, thrushes, flycatchers, tanagers and orioles, just arrived from across the waters of Lake Ontario. Here the birds will rest for a few days, gorge on midges and emerging larvae, before heading to nesting grounds farther north. These walks take place every morning during the Festival, May 1120, at 8 a.m. Both Saturdays, there will be evening hikes from the Observatory to the lighthouse at 4 p.m. Two workshops will help birders improve their identification skills. On Saturday, May 11, I will present “Warblers I Have Known and Loved”, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. On Saturday, May 18th, Pamela Stagg will lead a workshop called “Look Way Up – Raptor Identification” , 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. The workshops will be presented at Jackson’s Falls Schoolhouse B&B. The fee for each program is $25 and pre-registration is recommended. On Wednesday, May 15 at 7:30 p.m., there will be free presentation at Bloomfield Town Hall called Technobirding. Presented by Pamela Stagg, the program will show how our understanding of birds is increasing dramatically through the use of technologies such as bird banding networks, radar and radio-tracking – even radio-isotope analysis

of feathers to show where a bird has travelled. “ It’s easy to think of migrants like wood warblers as ‘our birds’,” Pamela explains. “But they may only be in our area for a few weeks each year. If we’re to save some of our most critically endangered species, we need to look at all the areas where the birds, live, not just local habitat. New technology will pinpoint all the v=places with birds call home. Throughout the Festival there will be daily banding demonstrations and tours of the banding station. A hospitality tent, provided by the Stewardship Council, will be open for visitors to chat with other birders, post their sightings, and meet the dedicated PEPtBO volunteers. Light snacks the Observatory’s own shade grown, bird-friendly coffee will be available, as well as PEPtBO merchandise. Public washrooms are located on site Details of the Birding Festival are on my website under events from the main menu. Scroll down until you see “Birding Festival 2013”, and then join us next week if you can. It will be well worth the trip.

60 years ago — 1953 Prince Edward Point is hopping — It’s for the birds ■ A number of county churches were working together to stage a large worship service to coincide with Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation May 31. ■ The cornerstone of the new Prince Edward District Collegiate Institute was to be laid at 2:30 p.m. that Monday with school board chair Gerald Norman officiating and W.B. Lane, the board’s oldest member speaking. The Collegiate’s glee club was also expected to perform. ■ Support for a bridge crossing near near Deseronto was growing as Napanee town council backed a plan that would see a bridge installed where Cronk’s ferry was operating near the north end of County Rd. 49. Napanee councillors were determined not to let Kingston influence the province’s decision to build the land bridge at the site of the Glenora ferry instead of Cronk’s ferry.

40 years ago — 1973

■ Prince Edward County warden Russell Thompson and Picton mayor H. J. McFarland expressed their support for a new bridge crossing the Bay of Quinte west of Belleville, near Loyalist College that have less congestion than the existing Bay Bridge site. McFarland also indicated he would back a plan to link New York State to Picton via bridges at Wolfe and Amherst Islands. ■ Cobourg mayor Jack Heenan told Picton Rotarians that rural communities needed to plan ahead to stop the province from implementing regional governments. He noted communities share social identities with one another before amalgamating politically.

20 years ago — 1993

■ Unemployment figures in Prince Edward County remained relatively stable as 1,000 people were listed as unemployed through the Canada Employment Centre in Picton, down just one person from a month earlier and down 15 people from May 1992. ■ Government grants of up to $12,000 were being made available to landowners taking steps to improve water quality by cleaning up shoreline with sewage systems and livestock access restrictions.


It was in 1997 when three of us met somewhere – can’t remember where – and discussed the possibility of creating a birding festival as a way to draw birders and tourist dollars into Prince Edward County. Few of us can even remember if the Birding Festival came first or was it the Prince Edward County Field Naturalists, or did it all happen at the same time. I do remember over 90 interested people crowded into a town hall when we launched the idea. Both entities have done exceptionally well since 1997. The Prince Edward County Field Naturalists, of course, a driving force right now in their effort to recognize the County’s South Shore and its rare alvar habitat and staging area for millions of spring and fall migrants, and protecting it from development. The Spring Birding Festival also has accomplished much in its 16 years of existence in drawing attention to a migration point that is rivaled only by Point Pelee. Routinely we see birders here now from across Ontario and Quebec, and from Michigan, New York and Ohio. So, the Birding Festival has been a positive thing for the County as it has brought in tourism dollars and has promoted Prince Edward Point as a number one birding area in eastern Ontario.


Also, it has increased exposure for the Prince Edward Point Bird Observatory which is now instrumental in organizing the annual event. In terms of visitors, it will never become a Point Pelee, and perhaps we don’t want shuttle buses, and throngs of people in such numbers there is scarcely a spot for a brown thrasher to perch. Right now, it seems just right. Promoting this incredible birding area without abusing it. This year ’s festival features the same high quality roster of events as in past years with a few new twists. As in the past, knowledgeable birders will be on hand to lead visitors along a number of groomed trails through the Point Traverse Woods, bordered by carpets of blue phlox, Dutchman’sbreeches and columbines.

Tribunal to shift focus toward human health starting this morning This morning, Ontario’s Environmental Review Tribunal will continue its hearing into Ostrander Point by moving onto the questions of the project’s potential impact on human health. Filed by the Alliance to Protect Prince Edward County (APPEC) and argued by Eric Gillespie, the appellant’s case will be the first to call actual victims of turbine-related health illness from Ontario.

It is expected that following opening statements this morning (beginning around 930 p.m. at the Sophiasburgh Town Hall in Demorestville), the appellants will call on up to 17 victims and complement that testimony with evidence from medical doctors and acousticians who can explain the symptoms those individuals have suffered. Among APPEC’s chief witnesses to be qualified as an

expert is Dr. Robert McMurtry, the former chair of medicine at the University of Western Ontario. APPEC chairman Henri Garand said the case will also include testimony from several Prince Edward County residents who believe they will suffer adverse health effects from the turbines. The proponent of the Ostrander Point site, Gilead Power is also expected to call

witnesses it believes will deny the causal relationship between the victim’s symptoms and the turbines. Garand indicated the hearings are expected to close June 6 with a deadline for a decision looming July 3. It is widely expected this phase of the appeal could set precedent for other wind applications in the future. -Staff

Early risErs Members of the POOCH (Patron Of Our County Hospital) group were out in front of the Wellington

Legion prior to 7 a.m. Tuesday to demonstrate as Quinte Healthcare Corporation chief executive officer Mary Clare Egberts and board chair Brian Smith addressed the Wellington Rotary Club. Smith vowed Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital would remain vibrant and said his board had no intention of seeing de-amalgamation on its watch.

Pirates’ victory an incredibly difficult feat to achieve

FOR many once-promising young hockey players in Ontario, it represents the end of the line. Dreams of hoisting a Stanley Cup have clouded for many Junior C hockey players and the carrot of receiving a scholarship based on their skill or climbing the ladder enough to have a competitive career beyond age 21 becomes farther out of reach with every game. Even now, the reality is that most members of the Picton Pirates Schmalz Cup championship team woke up after their celebrations last Thursday knowing they’d have to be in class, at work, or on the farm to catch up on their livelihoods after juggling their schedules to accommodate a miracle run. Their reality isn’t bonuses nor fame, and in a season, the notoriety of their accomplishments may be lost on all but the most dedicated fans who fill the arenas all year. And they’re the lucky ones who have moved on past merely stepping off cold school buses to play before half-filled matchbox arenas. Given those realities, it isn’t always easy for the coaches and managers of Junior C hockey teams to motivate their players and keep them on task and united to compete for greater glories. It takes a rare kind of team group to rise above adversity and come together for a chance to have a winning season. Beyond that, they play in a level of hockey that isn’t always fair. It isn’t bound by a salary cap and there are more than 60 organizations across Ontario battling for supremacy. Some play out of much larger towns with closer proximity to major cities, which means a deeper player base and better access to funds are almost a given. To many who know the game, it comes as no surprise that teams east of Hwy 400 seldom find themselves mentioned among those competing for — or winning — the trophy affectionately called Tubby's Mug through Ontario hockey circles. All of that makes the accomplishments of these Pirates worthy of celebration across the county. Over the past few years, the Pirates executive have stepped up their fundraising and marketing efforts, appearing in community events throughout the year. They’ve also regularly brought the players into the community to relate to the people of Prince Edward County and to gain pride in the uniform they wear. Coach and general manager Ryan Woodward and his staff have spent countless hours increasing the team’s dedication to practicing and perfecting a system, while scouting and acquiring proven talent and key recruits to add to the core his predecessor, our own Jason Parks, put together when the team first tasted success, knocking off a veteran-laden Napanee team in 2011 to win an Empire league championship. Those players, the ones who have to keep their fire for the game alive amid their many obligations saw the leadership from above and they took it upon themselves to get results many couldn’t reach. Their efforts are a special accomplishment and though the Pirates and their foes are playing better and better hockey, there’s no guarantee they or any other eastern Ontario team will win for a long time. We hope the town, county, and indeed, the region will properly acknowledge and celebrate visibly in the year ahead.

Library offers courses to help with the latest in technology

The County of Prince Edward Public Library & Archives has recently revised the format and selection of courses to reflect the ongoing changes in how people use technology. The basic Internet skills workshop, which previously comprised six sessions, has been streamlined into three sessions. Meanwhile, various new single workshops have been added to the line up. The current basic skills session is full and the next session begins in the fall, however, the new one-day workshops are being offered this spring. On Friday, May 24, a Windows PC file management workshop will be held at the Picton Branch from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. If you are storing original information such as photos, copies of important documents and written works on your computer and have trouble organizing and finding them, this workshop will be of interest. Topics covered will include how to create, copy, move and delete files and folders, how to change how viewing of files, how to copy files from external devices and digital cameras, and how to back up data. There will be a brief overview of ‘the cloud’, a model of networked online storage. This workshop is specifically for Windows PCs running XP to Windows 8. Participants should be comfortable using a computer and bring their laptop if possible. If not, the library will provide a laptop for the session. To register, please contact Whitney Lee at 613-476-5962 or For Mac or tablet file management help, contact the Picton computer lab to arrange an appointment for a onehour, one-on-one session at 613-476-5962 or e-mail: For those who find software updates confusing, or want help navigating anti virus software and adding or removing programs, the Windows PC software maintenance workshop will be helpful. The workshop will take place at the Picton branch from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Friday, May 31. The focus will be also be on learning how to maintain the software on PCs running Windows XP up to and including Windows 8. There are also new twohour information sessions in


The Picton Gazette


the new roster of courses. One is called “Understanding the options in choosing an Internet provider. “ This information session is for those looking for an Internet provider for their home or office. It is being offered on Friday, June 7 at the Picton branch from 10 a.m. to noon. “Residents of the county have a number of choices for getting high speed Internet service, and to take advantage of the best service for your location, knowing all the options is important,” says the library’s information technology co-ordinator, Eric Pierce. “You will learn a little more about how the Internet works "behind the screen” in the session as well as the key attributes of different types of Internet services such as DSL, cable, fixed wireless, cell phone based, and satellite.”. In the afternoon on the same day, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., the information session choosing a PC or tablet computer will be presented. “If you are buying a new computing device there are many choices available today and choosing one over the other can be confusing,” says Pierce. In this session, participants will learn the key attributes of all the available devices including Windows or Mac desktops, laptops and ultrabooks, Apple iPads and Android tablets. Come learn how to choose and purchase the right device for your needs. To register for this session, and for more information on any technology related training at the library, please contact Eric Pierce at 613-476-5962 or

Consider helping fund APPEC’s legal appeal

If hindsight were 20/20, and you could save something that were valuable to you for a relatively small investment, would you? Of course you would! I want you to consider what you value about living in the county. The answer will be a little different for each of you but I assume most of you would value what I call “quality of life” and “quality of place”. This takes into account a wide range of reasons that people choose to live in a rural setting but most likely includes: peace and quiet, slower pace of life, sense of community and belonging. Here in the county, we have all of that and more. Although we are not a "city", we have great restaurants, wineries, theatre, galleries,

festivals, et cetera to rival the likes of any "city" and we also have pastoral landscapes, beautiful viewscapes, the famous Sandbanks, and so much more. The Environmental Review Tribunal is underway to challenge the Ontario government on the basis of serious and irreversible harm to the environment and serious harm to human health. The first, if won, will protect only Ostrander Point. The second, if won, will protect all of the county, and all of Ontario. Legal appeals are costly but the board of APPEC has undertaken, on behalf of all us of here in the County, and on behalf of everyone in Ontario, to win this appeal and it is winnable. Visit APPEC’s web site to find out why.

But take note that previous appeals have not gone as far as hearing the testimony of the victims. This appeal will be the first time witness statements are heard at a Tribunal. What if there is not enough money raised to cover the cost of having the case heard in its entirety? What if this is our last chance to save our beloved county? If you believe that turbines do not make sense anywhere in Ontario, but least of all in a tourism area like the county, then here is your chance to help! Please consider carefully what living here is worth to you. Please include the likely devaluation of your home or business in that number. How much would you invest if you knew you had an excellent chance of being

successful at protecting those things you value - both the tangible and the intangible? Now is the time for action. We are at the 11th hour! It is not fair for the APPEC board to shoulder the cost of the legal appeal that will benefit all of us. So, get out your cheque book or go online and use a credit card and help APPEC win this appeal! If you have already given, thank you, but please do the exercise of determining what you would invest and then see if you can't dig a little deeper. Please visit or by mail APPEC Legal Fund, Box 173, Milford, ON K0K 2P0 Thank you for giving as generously as you can.

A special thank you is in order to Councillor Robert Quaiff and to most of the councillors who supported his motion designating PEC as an “unwilling host” for industrial wind turbines (IWTs). I have no doubt that maneuvering such a motion through this council was not an easy task. I am still in disbelief by the arguments, or the deafening silence used by those five councillors (Kevin Gale, Barb Proctor, Brian Marisett, Keith MacDonald and Jamie Forrester) for voting against Quaiff’s motion. Gale and Proctor seemed to take comfort in their position that since they didn’t know what the public thought on the matter, then they felt justified in voting against the motion. What they seem to be say-

ing is – we haven’t paid much attention to the issue and since we didn’t survey the public (like as if they ever did) then we better plead ignorance and vote against protecting our community. And they did! Proctor even refused to protect her own South Marysburgh constituents – who have certainly made their opinions known on this matter! So who was she representing with her negative vote – herself? Marisett and MacDonald were hoping to get away by saying nothing. MacDonald once had to declare a conflict of interest on all matters relating to IWTs and in the last municipal election he filled out a questionnaire claiming to be opposed to wind turbines. I guess he had a change of heart, so

whose interest was he representing? Marisett remained silent like many people do when they are uncertain of what the best decision may be. That is his right, but this was a time for leadership and where was he? Snoring! Personally, the most interesting comments came from Jamie Forrester. From what I can gather he was standing up for the people who were afraid to speak up in defense of IWTs, because they were being “ganged up on and picked on.” He then drew a parallel with the time he grew up in Whitby and “he remembers when they built their nuclear plant and how people over reacted by making claims that no one would live there.” He attempted to bring the voice of personal experience into the debate – he failed.

I can honestly state that as a past Whitby councillor who sat for a number of years as the mayor’s representative on the Durham Nuclear Emergency Task Force, there never was a nuclear plant built in Whitby! Jamie is obviously confused about where he grew up. The job of being a councillor is often not an easy one. People are elected to express their variety of opinions and experiences in the hope that good decisions are eventually arrived at. They don’t all have to agree, all of the time. But as of this moment, I have no idea as to why those five councillors voted no. They owe their community at least that much, that’s why they were elected.

Pirates’ journey provides travelling fan cheer in a Winnipeg pub

What a thrill to follow the “Patch Eyes” on this amazing journey to a hard-earned provincial championship. My work took me to several countries and many provinces over this hockey

season. And as first Wellington’s, then Belleville's talented junior teams met hard endings, it was more than satisfying to follow, often at a distance, the peaking courage and skill

of our "Rats". One recent night in a Winnipeg pub , a fellow publican colourfully and grumpily lamented the collapse of the NHL Jets. I was able to calmly raise my own barley

sandwich to the continued and serial championships of "my Picton Pirates". And I actually got a cheer! Bill Roberts RR2 Picton

Take care of your feet this month

May is foot health awareness month and this is when the International Federation of Podiatrists focuses on increasing the awareness of the importance of foot health among the general public. Most people take their feet for granted. But feet are vital to health and mobility, carrying you an average of 115,000 miles in a lifetime. No wonder foot problems are common. As people get older, these problems can get worse and it is especially important to care for your feet. In older people, foot problems can mean the difference between needing a long-term care home and being able to live at home. Feet are designed to perform two major functions: support and mobility. The heel of the foot serves as a firm pedestal for standing and the toes and the front of the foot are used primarily for walking. The flexibility and strength of your feet affects how you walk which in turn affects your posture and how you carry your weight. Neglected feet which become stiff and weak can cause backache, leg cramps and fatigue. It is important to wear shoes and socks that fit and that are comfortable. The foot tends to spread in the front under the body’s weight as people get older. Because most shoes are narrower in the front than the foot itself,



shoes can contribute to a variety of problems. Give yourself the foot test? Put your foot down on a piece of paper and trace around the bottom to see whether the front of your foot is wider than your shoe. If it is, it’s time to go shopping for a new pair of shoes. Basic foot care is also very important. Soaking and examining your feet, cutting your toe nails regularly etc. Older adults often find this very difficult due to other physical problems or just the aging process itself. It is important to keep your feet happy. Community Care sponsors foot care clinics with Registered Nurses who have

99 Days for

special training in foot care providing the service. If you need assistance with your foot care contact Community Care at 613-476-7493. Foot Care clinics are held in Picton and Wellington. The fee is $20.00 per person and appointments are necessary. The first visit is $25.00 as it is a longer visit. If you would like to make an appointment or would like more information call 613-476-7493. Some information for this column was taken from “Footnotes”, Veteran’s Affairs Canada.


The Walking Programs will wrap up for the summer on May 17. Call the office for the date we’ll resume in the fall. Meals on Wheels are available to seniors in Prince Edward County. Both hot and frozen meals are available. Check out the website for menus for the frozen meals or call the office for more information. Thinking about spring cleaning or yard work?

built the organization “from the ground up” over her years as executive director. “How the learning centre looks today is due, in large part, to her work and her passion. It's not just a job when you work in literacy — you have to believe in it,” Farrington said. Farrington said Conley's passion for the job was always evident; often coming to work with big ideas and the drive to accomplish them. “We would do it and it would work,” she said. While Farrington was happy for Conley, she said she's sad to see her leave. “It's kind of bittersweet because of how much she's looking forward to retirement — and fair enough, she's worked really hard — but as an organization we're really going to miss her and miss the team. We've worked together 15 years.” However, Farrington said change is good. “Linda would be the first one to root for change and to mix things up,” she said. Added PELC executive assistant Christine Chapman, “anyone walking through our door is trying to change their life.” Chapman said Conley knows the community inside and out and that knowledge has helped her connect clients with anything they need. “She's very empathetic, she's not judgmental, and she really listens to what that person who comes to her office really needs and sends them in the right direction,” Chapman said. “She is really passionate and always wants to better the life of the person who walks through our thresh-

old. It's really important.” Chapman said when Conley joined PELC, it was only about a year old and was an offshoot of Quinte Literacy Group in Belleville. When Conley came, Chapman said, she brought with her a different perspective “We had a couple of interim executive directors before Linda came in. Then Linda brought a whole other segment of learning in. She had been doing labour adjustments in Kingston, so she brought in all that talent,” She said. Chapman said she too would miss Conley being part of the team. Chapman has worked with the executive director for all of Conley's 18 years with PELC. “It's been a good team,” she said. “I'm sure it will (still) be a good team.” Conley said when the organization started it was just a small community program, but has grown into an essential community service. “We had maybe 10 students at the most and now we serve up to 100 people in a year. We have four staff, we have classes, we have projects — we've really grown over the years,” she said. After moving three times the organization found a home in the Armoury in Picton. Conley said it's a great space with great community partners. While she's not regularly in the spotlight, Conley was very appreciative of the gesture on Friday. “I'm thrilled, I really am. I'm not used to being the centre of attention, but this is very nice,” she said. “I'm looking forward to the next adventure. It will be good.”

Ameliasburgh residents seek assurances from Bayfield about runaways Treatment centre hosts open forum about its procedures, but finds many neighbours still fearful and concerned Staff writer

While the senior management of Bayfield Treatment Centres attempted to reach out to their neighbours Monday, it appears people in the county’s northwest end are seeking a different type of communication. At Ameliasburgh Town Hall, Bayfield chief operating officer Sharlene Weitzman and director of residential services Todd Powell attempted to tell about 50 residents how their company has responded to incidents in the past two years of youth running away from their facilities and striking fear in members of the surrounding community in a rash of property crimes. “The events of the last few years in terms of some of our children running away and causing damage in the community has given us pause to speak and engage in a more open forum with our community,” said Weitzman. She indicated the public’s concern reached a boiling point with a specific string of incidents along County Rd. 1, where Bayfield claimed it was unable to learn the specifics of the activities, nor start dialogue with affected community members. Weitzman claimed that since Bayfield is not the guardian of the youth, it took some time for her to learn the specifics of the charges against the youth and the damages caused. Even when she did know, she indicated Bayfield was told not to take action while a criminal investigation was under way. Since, Weitzman said Bayfield has taken a number of steps it believes will reduce the risk of runaways causing damage in the community, adding tools s he believes are unprecedented in the province and in Canada. Bayfield has worked with

its staff to review counselling procedures, Weitzman said she now personally reviews every application for treatment at the centre, and it has moved some of its older youth onto its main campus from a community home. With the help of the public, Bayfield has also implemented the Newsline Alert System, an automated calling program that alerts interested people about the description of an individual believed to be in the public without supervision and the area the person is believed to be in. Members of the public were critical of Bayfield’s use of that system as some people who claimed to have signed up multiple times indicated they hadn’t been getting calls, including one sent out in the Consecon area just that morning. Even John Williams, one of the men who brought the system to the area, had his doubts about it. “ It's not the list that's the problem, the execution is the problem,” he said. “I didn't get a call, I'm on the steering committee, on the list.” Other neighbours, like Tom Livingston, wonder why Bayfield wouldn’t directly visit neighbours to try to put their minds at ease. He said there have been times when he’s seen heavily-armed police officers on his farm responding to Bayfield missing persons reports and viewed Bayfield trucks going up and down the street, but nobody stopped. “You should come up to the door and tell me what is happening,” he said, adding he’s also been on the calling list a long time and has yet to receive messages. Another man, whose property was damaged along County Rd. 1 indicated he is still living in fear. “The environment has been poisoned here. I feel safer feeling in Toronto than my farm. I wonder did I lock

my car, is my wallet in my car? I don't sleep well. You never know when something is going to happen. Somebody is going to get killed.” The man requested that municipal officials step forward to offer reassurance for residents that property crime will not happen before he and a number of others stormed out of the meeting stating they expect more from the company The question, however, is what can be done. Weitzman said her staff can counsel res-

idents but due to provincial regulations, they cannot physically intervene in a situation unless the individuals or others are deemed to be in imminent danger. The staff is also not expected to follow the youth to private property. Weitzman also pointed out the facility’s staff-toclient ratios are well above provincial standards, even during the night hours. Residents also asked if the municipality could protect neighbourhoods through bylaws tightening restric-

tions on the group homes, but ultimately Mayor Peter Mertens denied that, stating the zoning the homes fall under is a residential designation, which includes group homes of any sort. “This is an Ontario zoning bylaw, this isn’t a County bylaw per se,” he said. “This council has been looking at this for two years. We’ve looked at every legislative opportunity to look at setbacks, minimum distances and controls. Our hands are tied, exactly the same way

theirs are tied under the social service requirements. Mertens said other municipalities that tried to restrict saw their decisions appealed and voted down. He indicated the only way to mitigate the homes is to work for a private agreement and in this instance, Bayfield has already agreed to not build or relocate group homes within two kilometres of its existing group homes within a half-hour of Consecon.

A Bloomfield man has been sentenced to six years in prison for stabbing his roommate in the neck and killing him during an alcohol-fuelled altercation in their Stanley Street home last May. Justice John Johnston delivered the sentence to Lawrence Markwell at Picton's Superior Court Tuesday morning, citing the remorse shown in a pre sentence report and during trial as part of the reason at arriving at the length of sentence for the convicted Markwell was convicted in January, 2013 when a jury of six men and six women found him innocent of second degree murder but guilty of manslaughter. The jury felt there was provocation when Markwell plunged a pocket knife into Thomas McCormick's neck, nicking a major artery and killing his best friend in the home the pair shared for close to a decade around midnight on May 1, 2012. Johnston said he supported the jury's findings that both cleared Markwell of the more serious charge and convicted him of a lesser charge and said it was very difficult to develop a sentence in such a case.

The Ontario Ministry of Transportation (MTO) retained Dillon Consulting Limited to complete the initial design and Class Environmental Assessment (EA) for the replacement of the Pearsall Creek culvert on Highway 62, north of Huff’s Corners in Prince Edward County. It is anticipated Highway 62 will remain open during construction, however it will likely be reduced to one lane with temporary signals used to allow two directions of travel. If periodic closure of the highway is required, a detour will be in place to direct traffic. THE PROCESS The study will be completed following the Class Environmental Assessment for Provincial Transportation Facilities (2000) for a Group ‘B’ project. The study will identify the most appropriate method to replace the culvert and will assess the impacts, including traffic management during construction and impacts to the natural environment. A report documenting the study process will be available for review at the end the study. If during the study it is determined there are no significant environmental effects associated with the project, the MTO may decide to step-down the project to a Group ‘C’. If this is the case, a notice will be published in local newspapers advising of the change and a study documentation report will be completed for MTO’s internal use. PUBLIC AND AGENCY CONSULTATION Public and agency consultation is an important component of the study. It is anticipated that a Public Information Centre (PIC) will be held once a recommended method for replacing the culvert has been identified and impacts of the project have been assessed. A notice of PIC will be published in local newspapers. If you would like to be contacted directly prior to the PIC, please contact Dillon at the address below and request to be added to the contact list. Additional information on the project is available at COMMENTS We are interested in receiving comments or concerns you may have with the study.

“Lawrence Markwell was not in a trapped position where he had to reside in the home with Thomas Mac Cormack,” explained Johnston. In granting enhanced credit for pretrial custody, Johnston pointed to the content of the pre sentencing report that painted Markwell as a sympathetic figure full of remorse for his actions on the morning of May 1, 2012 and believed that there was no indication his actions were part of a pattern. With enhanced one day for one and a half day credit for his time spent at the Quinte Detention Centre awaiting trial, Markwell's actual time in federal custody will translate to four and a half years. Johnston commended the crown and the defence




J. JoHnsTon ONtariO JUStiCe

for their efforts to bring the judicial process along quickly. Outside the courthouse after Johnston had meted out his sentence, both crown and defence counsel thought the punishment was fair. “I think it's important we express to the public and Thomas McCormick's family how deeply sorry my client is for what happened. He wants his condolences passed to the family and if he could have that moment back, he would in a second,” Roberts told reporters. “The most important thing is that the McCormick family has lost a brother, my client has lost his best friend and that's not going to change.” Roberts called the penal term “fair and balanced.” “We have no issues, my client felt he's been treated very fair through out the entire trial,” she said. Crown attorney Jodi Whyte called Johnston's sentence “appropriate.” “I think it's appropriate given their friendship and (Markwell's) remorse. There were a number of factors in this case that the judge rightly took into account,” Whyte said.

“His sentence must send a strong message to the community that in a civilized society, we will not sanction the use of weapons in a fight,” Johnston said. In arriving at his sentence, Johnston noted the pair had a close relationship that would turn tumultuous and toxic when alcohol was introduced and it was during one of these instances where the common physical altercations between the two took a tragic turn. Johnston mentioned that any sentence must also reflect the loss of McCormick, although neither a long nor short sentence would restore the loss of the slain man to his family. “Mr. McCormick's death was a tragedy,” said Johnston. “Nothing I say today is meant to minimize Mr. McCormick's death. At the core of this sentencing hearing is the tale of two longtime friends.” In his view, case law submitted by defence counsel Ruth Roberts had some similar aspects to the case at hand but was lacking overall and this instance was not a case of battered spouse syndrome as was suggested.

Contemplating another drought this summer

We spent last summer talking and writing about managing gardens and lawns in drought conditions. Early this spring we focused on helping our lawns and gardens fully recover from last year’s drought. Now after two dry weeks the long range weather forecasts provide little hope for significant rain in the near future. When lack of rain significantly impacts gardening either because of the lack of water due to the limitation of available wells or the cost of using increasingly more expensive municipal water, what are the alternatives? Thinking back to last summer and the amount of additional bucket haulage to water remote new shrubs, trees and planters, the mulching, and the moving of hoses, what could be done to reduce the amount of extra work? The first thing I did was cancel an order for a new tree. Last summer I began increasing my supply of soaker hoses trying to decide which are best for what parts of my garden in terms of dispersing and not wasting a precious commodity, water. I will now purchase more. As well, when talking to a friend, I discovered that he is seriously considering putting a tank on a four foot platform near his garden and having it filled with water occasionally by the tanker trucks in the county over the summer so he could maintain his vegetable garden. What I remember of the county in the late ‘70s is one particularly bad drought year, but it was also part of a series of years with less than optimal rain. Given the high possibility of yet another year of drought, are there


other solutions, what could be pared back, reduced or increased to make coping with drought easier? Certainly more soaker hoses would reduce the number of moves required to water minimally. Perhaps installing an irrigation system in the vegetable and small fruit gardens along with more intensive planting in fewer beds would work as well. Heavy composting under the mulch would provide more water absorbent material thus decreasing the need for watering frequency. Plants that droop first when not watered can be replaced by drought tolerant perennials and annuals. Using less water is such a popular environmentally acceptable approach that both the Internet and books carry long lists of possible plant replacements. A recent article on a cottage garden also listed some excellent choices of sun loving flowering plants and grasses that are more tolerant to drought conditions. If the plan for a minimal care garden is successful

even when rain is lacking, the reward for the gardener is less worry and more free time. You could just use the time to sit and look at your garden and dream. If sitting is not your thing, you could use your spare time to focus on creating something you have always wanted in your garden. For example, it could be a recycling fountain or a minimal water use pond. Perhaps you have always wanted rock walls or pathways. If you are really handy you could do it yourself or find someone to do it with you. Perhaps your preference is a rail fence instead. It could be a green house that has filled your dreams, now you have time to look at options around use and affordability. You could spend the summer planning a better garden either with a specific theme or a more drought-resistant design. Would you like to take a holiday from your garden? You could spend time looking at other gardens and gathering ideas. Alternatively, you could do all the things you never find time for because you do so much gardening. You could take up kayaking or pottery or walking on the county beaches. The threat of yet another drought is also a window to the possibility of change to undertake a more environmentally friendly way of gardening and/or to enjoy life and gardening more.

RE/22 f THURSDAY, MAY 9, 2013


County man must pay back $32,000 he gained from frauds committed against businesses and former employee Jason Parks

Staff writer

A Prince Edward County man pled guilty to fraud charges totalling around $32,000 in Picton's Provincial Court on Wednesday. James Miller was before Justice Geoff Griffin and admitted he defrauded a number of businesses both in and outside of Prince Edward County as well as a former employee. As part of the plea agreement and the sentence proposal drafted by Crown attorney Mike Lunski and defence attorney Bruce Campbell, Miller was handed a nine-month conditional sentence to be served

in the community followed by an 18-month probation term. As part of that sentence, Miller paid over $19,000 to businesses and individuals he defrauded over the past five years on Wednesday and will start paying the balance of the funds owed this fall in a quarterly payment plan that will last as long as his probation period. In accepting the co-operatively developed sentence, Griffin said Miller's actions strike at the heart of a small community and shake the sense of trust, pride and family in a small agriculture community like Prince Edward County. “That a member of the

community would steal has shaken the faith in the community,” Griffin said. “This shaking of faith is more significant because it came against small businesses and individuals, not large corporations.” Lunski said there was difficulty in developing the sentence being offered because there is a sense Miller should be going to real jail and serving a penal sentence. However, such a sentence would not allow for timely and full restitution to the victims. “He could have declared bankruptcy, possibly spent some time in jail and then moved away to another community, perhaps to Alberta

where he has made good money before as a heavy equipment operator,” Campbell said. “He's instead chosen to do what's right by staying and facing the issue and taking the hard road.” Griffin agreed Miller could have eluded the court, declared bankruptcy and fled the community and the justice noted his willingness to attend court and pay back the victims. He said he also understood Lunksi's comments about Miller receiving jail time. “It's hard not to put Jamie Miller in actual jail, he's worthy of jail but in some ways that would be easier on him,” Griffin said. “He could go in

there, hide, serve his time...It will be much harder on him to put him in the community and face some of the people he's victimized. It's also the only way restitution will be paid and if he' doesn't meet those obligations or stay within the conditions set out today, he will be going to jail.” As part of the sentence, Miller is to remain in the province Ontario, maintain employment, abstain from alcohol, participate in any counselling prescribed by the court or officer of the court. He is to reside at an approved residence and not to be anywhere else other then for the purposes of employment, medical emergencies

or other court matters. Griffin said is was difficult to understand how Miller ended up in this situation. “It's hard to understand how we got here today. From what I can tell you are not addicted to any drugs or living beyond your means, addicted to some lavish lifestyle as can be the case in these situations,” Griffin said. Miller's only reply was that he got himself into “real financial problems.” The original tab on Miller's fraud charges was originally set at $39,000, however, a bill owing worth around $6,000 was settled in the days leading up to Wednesday's plea and sentencing.

BAYFIELD , from page 11

Don Carr, a representative of of a citizens’ group in the area of Redersville Road and Old Orchard Road said he has found some peace in working with Bayfield in an attempt to address issues. “It was a very heated start,” he said. “You can imagine us experiencing for the first time an organization and a business were behind some of the experiences our residents were having in the area — but there has been progress.” Carr said his group has been able to reach the agreement with Bayfield about separation between group homes and it’s also championed the Newsline. He also noted it is important to recognize all Bayfield residents are not causing problems and the centres are working on the issues. “This is not a hundred kids in running loose in the county,” he said. “It is a small percentage of troublemakers, just as there is in all aspects of

Justin Dart 613-969-6788

society.” Carr added typically the runaways happen during the day before night medication is given and in most cases, the children can be identified by their lack of footwear. He stressed the Newsline along with its co-founder Mike Batty as the most reliable means of communication on the issue. “Given that runaways are inevitable and legislative action in the county is limited, the Newsline it all we have,” Batty said. “It lets us know to gird our loins, lockdown our property, look out for our family, and get the children recovered as soon as possible. It’s in everyone’s best interest’.” The number to be added to the Newsline is 613-3923551 ext. 241. When asked about the high cost to taxpayers for police response to the incidents, Powell said Bayfield has no influence on the police response, they simply file a missing person’s report. The County’s police services board chair, Robert

Quaiff, was in attendance however and said the OPP has just developed a daily activity report number to coincide with Bayfield activity. It also now has a community liaison offcier dedicated to the facility. In the last six months, he said it appears police spent $20,000 on investigations connected to individuals there, but the liaison officer could help reduce calls. While its evident Bayfield is dealing with more difficult youth and is seeing more restrictions from above about handling them, some residents appear to be losing patience with the system. Livingston said he’s lived near the centre for 40 years and tension is increasing. He didn’t feel Monday’s meeting helped matters. “People felt talked down to and saw this turned back on us,” he said, adding many are afraid the violence could still escalate. “Definitely fear plays a large part. We shouldn’t feel the need to lock everything up every day of our lives.”

Anglers flood to Bay of Quinte for opening weekend Area waters busy for Kiwanis walleye derby ChAd iBBotson

Staff writer

The county's marinas were a bustling arena of anglers as the Kiwanis Walleye World Live Release Fishing Derby kicked off open season on walleye and pike over the weekend. The Quinte region's signature fishing event regularly attracts hundreds of anglers from across the province to Prince Edward County and surrounding communities. Taking home the top prize was Rob Wengel with his 11.92-pound walleye. Second in the senior walleye category went to John Grills for his 11.3-pound fish, and third to Jeff Lupton at 11.06. First place in the senior pike category went to Sean Robinson for his 13.44-pound fish, second to Colin Wolsey at 13.07, and third to Shawn Brummell at 12.89. In the junior categories Tynika Williams reeled in an 8.84-pound fish to win the junior walleye category, while Braeden Palmer took home top prize for his 10.05-pound pike. None of the tagged fish were caught. Kiwanis member and Picton resident Rod Holloway said the weigh station was fairly busy on Saturday morning. He said this is his first year volunteering at the derby and he was enjoying

PiCton Pike South Porcupine resident George Bernard drove close to nine hours from just outside of Timmins, Ont. to take part in the Kiwanis Walleye World Live Release Fishing Derby over the weekend. Bernard said he enjoys the derby so much he plans to make it a yearly trip. Bernard’s catch above weighed just over six pounds. (Chad Ibbotson/Gazette staff)

the sunshine. “It is beautiful. I've heard people say this is really good compared to other years,” he said. “I don't mind it at all.” He said early on Saturday the biggest fish he'd weighed was close to 11 pounds. He said there were a lot of com-

ments from passersby about how big the fish coming into the weigh station were. Although the prizes, fish, and fun may draw the crowds, Holloway underscored the reason Kiwanis hold the event every year. “Kiwanis, we're trying to

raise money for kids projects. I'm a retired teacher, so I'm really interested in the welfare of kids and I'm glad to be part of this,” he said. “It's a real opportunity to do something for the community and for children.” South Porcupine resident

George Bernard made close to a nine-hour drive to Picton to take part in the event. He said it was his second year entering the derby. “I enjoy it a lot. I'm making plans to book a cabin every year for the next five years,” he said.

He said the fishing is a little slower here than in South Porcupine, which is just outside of Timmins, but said the lake system is bigger here. “We've got a pretty good wind blowing through here too, so that makes a difference,” he said. Bernard said the waterways were jammed with boats as anglers looked to take advantage of the beautiful weather throughout Saturday and Sunday. “There are about 40 (boats) just at the dock we're at,” he said. Oshawa resident Brandon Van Asten said he's an avid fisherman who loves fishing for pike and muskie. This is the fourth time Van Asten has entered the Kiwanis derby. “I love it — especially season opener; get the boat wet, get the lines wet for the first time. It's good,” he said. “We usually launch here and fish out in Picton Bay, up to the lake and Hay Bay. Tomorrow we'll try some new water near Belleville.” Early Saturday morning Van Asten brought two pike in to the Picton weigh station; one weighing 7.65 pounds and the other 8.48. “Hopefully this afternoon we'll get a few bigger fish and be in contention. We didn't think those ones would win anything, but you never know,” he said. “It's a good day for fishing all around.” He said another fish caught his eye, however.

Pitching powers Panthers past Titans in battle of unbeaten teams PECI manufactures just enough offence to defeat defending champions AdAm BrAmBurger

Staff writer

stingy thrower Matt Gallo allowed just one hit through four innings as he led the PECI Panthers past St. Theresa Monday night. (Adam Bramburger/Gazette staff)

With the pitching Matt Gallo and Bob Wilson provided the PECI Panthers Monday against the St. Theresa Titans, most of the other potential stories in the game just didn't matter. The duo of veteran moundsmen compiled a four-hitter over seven innings as the Panthers stayed unbeaten by handing the defending Bay of Quinte champs a 3-1 loss, their first this year. "That's the storyline," said Panthers coach Matt Ronan. "We threw twice the amount of strikes as balls. It allowed our pitchers to keep their batters off balance and they dominated the game. When you receive a four-hitter, you really can't ask for more from

them." After Gallo and his opposite number Nick McTaggart kept the game knotted through an inningand-a-half, the Panther offence would find all the runs it needed in the bottom of the second inning. George Goddard started things off for the home side with a hard-hit, one-out triple to the rightfield fence. The Panthers' next batter, Scott McQuaid won an extended dual with McTaggart, finally belting an RBI single down the line in left field. Ultimately, he would also score in the inning as Riley McConnell dropped a fly ball into left field between three Titans. Gallo showed a momentary chink in his armour in the third inning as he allowed the Titans to fill the bases with a Trevor Walsh

single followed by an out and consecutive bases on balls to Dawson Whyte and Corey Farrell. He kept his composure, however, and got two batters to fly out within the infield to preserve the lead. "A couple of errors got me flustered, but I eventually got my head back into it and started throwing strikes," said Gallo. Added Ronan: "I gave him the nickname Johnny Drama back a ways and we started with the bases loaded and one out. To get those last two outs is huge. It was great by Matt — a gut check and he stayed strong and finished. He's a guy who has been pitching (in the league) for three years, he knows how to handle those situations." After four innings, Gallo would give way to Wilson

having given up just one hit and striking out two batters.The Titans would pick up their first run of the game in the fifth inning as Walsh cashed in a runner with a sacrifice fly. The Panthers would answer back in the bottom of the inning, however, though they didn't take full advantage of St. Theresa's relief pitching. After Phil Seguin reached base on balls, Kyle Gould doubled into left field to place him on third base. Gould would miss his sign, however, and be called out going to third base as Seguin held his spot. Gallo helped his own cause for a win with a well-hit RBI single to right field, but was caught stealing ending the rally in progress.

CHARLEBOIS, Norma. In loving memory of my wife and best friend, who left us May 15, 2009. God saw you getting tired And a cure was not to be, So He put His arms around you And whispered "Come with Me". With tearful eyes I watched you, And saw you pass away. Although I loved you dearly, I could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating, Hard working hands to rest. God broke my heart to prove to me He only takes "the best" I miss you, love Gil CHARLEBOIS, Norma. In loving memory of a dear mother and grandmother, who left us May 15, 2009. We miss you in so many ways, We miss the things you used to say And when old times we do recall, It's then we miss you most of all. Love always Don, Laurie Marc, Sarah, Brian Charlebois, Peter, Michele Matthew, Meaghan, Travis and Ava Sloski CHARLEBOIS, Norma. In loving memory of a dear mother, who left us May 15, 2009. Things I feel most deeply are the hardest things to say, Dearest Mum, I loved you in a very special way, If I could have one lifetime wish, one dream that could come true, I'd pray to God with all my heart for yesterday and you. Miss you Mom, Love Michele

So sending thoughts to Heaven On the day you went away, And hope you know you’re missed More than words could say. Lovingly remembered by your family.

Hayesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; overtime tally in Game 1 sets table for Game 5 home-ice heroics

CHAMPS, from page 1

The clock was reset to 19:47 remaining in the third period of Game 1 with the score 2â&#x20AC;&#x201C;1 for the Pirates. The 73's had some jump and Chad Hendrick was able to find the back of the net to even the score. Six minutes later Cole Bolton got a head of steam down the wing and came in alone on Essex goaltender Trevor Wheaton. Bolton fired a swift wrist shot that clanged off the post and in to give Picton the lead again. The 73's wouldn't let up and at 12:29 Kenny Murduff took a tripping penalty that proved to be costly. On the ensuing man advantage Aaron Thibert was able to beat Picton goalie Andrew Pearson to again even things up. The game went to overtime. As the 73's put some pressure on the Picton defence the puck squirted to an Essex forward sifting in from the wall. He fired a shot that went under Pearson's right pad. There was a roar of cheers from the Essex players both on the ice as well as the bench as they thought they'd tasted victory. As Pearson lifted his pad the puck was clearly wedged under it. You could almost hear the collective heart of Essex thud to the ground. Woodward said the moment was a wake-up call for the Pirates. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were on our heels too much and we needed to regain momentum,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The guys responded

the right way.â&#x20AC;? Minutes later there was a faceoff in the Essex zone. Mitchell Smith fired the puck to the net and Eric Hayes drove it home to give Picton the Game 1 win. After the ice was cleared and the anthem sung, the puck was dropped for Game 5 with the Pirates leading the series 3â&#x20AC;&#x201C;1. Five minutes into the first period Jordan Ryan beat Pearson to make it 1â&#x20AC;&#x201C;0 and an elated crowd fell silent. The remainder of the first period was full of battles, and of stellar performances in goal from both Pearson and Wheaton.

The 73's took the slim lead into the second period, but again they came out and put the pressure on Picton. After making three 10-bell saves in tight, a rebound off Pearson squirted to the side where Scott Bromley waited. He fired the shot high to the shelf over a sprawling Pearson before diving into the glass in front of an incensed crowd of Picton fans. Just five minutes later, those incensed fans would be elated. With Essex ahead 2â&#x20AC;&#x201C;0 they began to take undisciplined penalties. The Pirates were given a glorious chance to get back in the

game with a five-on-three power play due to a checking from behind penalty to Marco Canzoneri and a tripping penalty to Dylan Solecki (both players were ultimately ejected from the game). Jack Davison found some open ice at the side of the Essex goal. He called for the pass and fired a rocket past Wheaton to get the Pirates on the board. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We needed a goal before the end of the second period and once Jack Davison was able to get us on the board, the guys came alive. We started to press and we were moving our feet well,â&#x20AC;? Woodward said. The Pirates had momen-

tum on their side to open the third period, but were denied on several excellent chances. In the end, it was a couple of pucks that Wheaten should have had that got the Pirates the victory. At 12:22 of the third Mitchell Smith walked out from the wall and fired a puck on net that dribbled slowly through Wheaton's legs and into the net. Under two minutes later Levi George rushed in on Wheaton fired a shot that Wheaton saved, but George picked up the rebound and fired a back hand short side that beat the Essex goaltender. It was all the scoring the Pirates would need

as they played out the remaining six minutes of the game to the roar of biggest crowd at the Prince Edward Community Centre in recent memory. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The fans did a fantastic job of creating energy in that building. It was as loud as I've ever heard it in Picton. They were definitely a part of that game and the players were able to feed off that,â&#x20AC;? Woodward said. Woodward said the final six minutes of the game seemed to fly by as both teams continued to push the pace. Even as the seconds ticked down, Essex continued to attack. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The guys were watching the clock, but they were still focused until the end,â&#x20AC;? he said. Pirates forward Evan Greer seemed to be at the heart of the series. In the five games of the final he had 11 points. As the Pirates celebrated their Schmalz Cup victory Greer said he couldn't explain the feeling. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I don't even know what to say. Our whole team battled hard. Andrew Pearson was phenomenal; couldn't have done it without him,â&#x20AC;? he said. Also, the Game 1 replay came because Greer continued to play after being called for three stick infractions. Greer said it was a great feeling to see the team pull out the win in the replay. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It felt great. I couldn't even watch the game to be honest,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To see them do that for me, I'm just speechless.â&#x20AC;? Pirates defenceman and captain Brandon Peever described the feeling as surreal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I can honestly say it hasn't hit me yet, but it's just a lot of excitement here with boys and words can't even explain what's going on right now,â&#x20AC;? he said. Peever pointed to the support of the fans as a source of inspiration for the team. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I've never seen the Picton arena as jam packed and as noisy as it is tonight. I can't thank the fans enough for cramming into here just for us tonight,â&#x20AC;? he said. Pearson said it took a lot of hard work to get the win and to have the success the team has seen all season long. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was an amazing way to end the season. We worked for it. We're a pretty skilled group of guys and we're lucky to have some players we do have,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We came to practice ready to work and our coaching staff really pushed us. This just makes it all worth it.â&#x20AC;?

“We had a few bigger ones follow us and one really big one. To get him to commit is something else, but we'll see.

We know where he lives,” Van Asten laughed. There was more than $200,000 worth of cash and other prizes up for grabs this year. First place in the senior

Ronan said he'd like to have some of those plays on the base paths back. "We made three key mistakes there," he said. "We need to be sharp and get more jump if we want to win against that team in the future." Still, Wilson managed to save the win as he didn't let another runner into scoring position. In all, Ronan said he was pleased with his team's effort in an important game as the Panthers look down the stretch with games

against Nicholson Monday and Quinte Thursday. "St. Theresa plays great ball. We knew we were going to be in for a ball game and a seven-inning game in an hour-and-a-half shows there were two teams out there who know how to play the game," he said. "Our veterans were there. They were ready to play this game early on. They were walking the halls thinking baseball and wanting baseball." Ronan says he expects the Panthers will see St. Theresa again in their quest for a league title.

Artist offers church colour and creativity Campbell takes up residence at St. Andrew’s to help find beauty AdAm BrAmBurger

The Ag & Rural Update is an electronic bulletin that is produced weekly by staff at the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture & Food, (OMAF), Brighton Resource Centre is distributed free to subscribers. Not all of the information used in this farm calendar is supplied by the electronic bulletin.

New Fund to Help Innovative Companies Grow - The Ontario government is moving forward with its plan to create a new venture capital fund that will help innovative start-ups and other emerging companies get the financing they need to build competitive businesses and create tomorrow’s jobs. The Ontario government will contribute up to $50 million to the new fund, which is part of the government’s plan to foster the right climate to attract investment, support innovation, create jobs and grow the economy. This new fund will build on the province’s successful Ontario Venture Capital Fund (OVCF) which invests in Ontario-focused funds that support growing companies. Created in 2008, the OVCF has leveraged $750 million in private capital. For further information, visit:

New Resource for Specialty Crop Growers Growers in Ontario have a new resource to help them choose and grow a wide range of specialty crops called “SPECIALTY CROPportunities”. The Ministry of Agriculture and Food and the Ministry of Rural Affairs staff along with University of Guelph colleagues assembled a team of researchers from the University of Guelph, Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, Erie Innovation and Commercialization, and Vineland Re-

J. H. Anderson

search and Innovation Centre to pull together all of the available research on specialty crops and provide a single resource for growers. Initially the resource includes specific information on 100 specialty crops, which will be expanded over the next few years. Growers looking for information pertaining to a specific crop can use the crop category selection or alphabetical crop list to locate a profile on that crop. Each profile summarizes background information on the crop, its growth habit, and specific agronomic information such as plant spacing, fertility, irrigation, soil type, harvest, and storage requirements. It also includes information on pests of that crop, such as a listing of existing and potential pests, notes on potential pest impacts, and how to find more information on pest management. Finally, the profile lists any research projects conducted on that crop in Ontario and other references used to create the profile. If a grower is unsure of what they want to grow, they can use the Crop Selection Tool to narrow down the list of specialty crops to those specifically suited to their preferences and growing conditions. The resource can be found at html. This project was funded by Agri-Food and Rural Link, a program of the Ontario government and University of Guelph Partnership.

Jeanne Campbell will use a tried and tested process when she begins her work as the artist-in-residence at St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church this Sunday. She'll let her creativity take over, rely on her keen instinct of colour, and courageously let her work take her where it goes — and ultimately, she'll be counting on her risks to deliver beauty. Campbell studied art at Ryerson University and from several other artists she admires, but says she is mostly self taught. Her experiences, she says, come from the chances she's taken in the name of trying something different artistically. After recently moving to Picton from the Napanee area and joining the St. Andrew's congregation, Campbell showed Rev. Lynn Donovan the spirit she says might help the faithful come to a new understanding of the mystery they seek to share more fully. "What excites me so much about Jeanne is her playful spirit... the holy spirit in tradition is playful and unpredictable," Donovan said, explaining that through Campbell's outlook on art, she can encourage other members of the community to see life in different, colourful ways. In essence, Donovan said that while an artist-in-residence might be an unheard of distinction for many churches, it is really a throwback to Christianity's earliest times. "Before the Reformation, art and beauty was at the heart of Christianity," she said. "The Church was a patron of the arts, and the majority of art was church-based. The time came and that changed. Protestants limited expressions of beauty to one thing, the ear." Donovan reasoned that many Protestant churches limited visual art inside their holy buildings simply to stained glass, considering religious images as idols. She said many forms of art can show the beauty of faith, not just those that might be con-

sidered religious. At St. Andrew's, Donovan said the community is going to try to embrace more sources of inspiration. "It's about time we started using all the senses," she said, noting the community has long used her husband Phil Norton's colourful photographs as part of its worship sessions as well. With that, she approached Campbell about being artist in-residence, knowing fully well that unlike other church projects like the Ten Thousand Villages store or Reaching For Rainbows, she didn't exactly know where this one was heading. That was just fine by Campbell. "I sort of like to work under the radar and am not really the one to step up, but this is the perfect opportunity to do it," she said. "There are no definitions, I'm just going for it." The one thing for sure about the position is that Campbell will oversee the Courage to be Colourful art

show, which will open June 8. The project will include decorating the back walls of the church sanctuary with works from more than 20 congregants, invited community members, and Reaching For Rainbows participants that show colour. The art will stay in the church until the jazz festival weekend, allowing visitors to the church to contemplate the works and to be inspired by them. Over that course of time, the facility will be open to many visitors for a summer cultural series and a host of concerts. The show will also offer a chance for patrons to contact artists about commissions and private sales. Beyond the show, Campbell's year-long post may include several tasks as she goes along, such as offering arts workshops for the community or envisioning new ways to bring the beauty of the Easter season to the physical church. Donovan said she's interested in the impact those workshops may have on some of the older members of the congregation in particular. "We're talking about people who live on this side of the lines, now we'll see what they can do when they go outside of them," she said. Added Campbell: "It means stepping out, taking a risk, and fooling around — it's having fun and if it isn't fun, then why are we doing it?"

The trucks were formally unveiled by the Prince Edward County fire department at the Mutual Aid meeting in Wellington on Thursday evening with members of County council and both local and neighbouring firefighters on hand. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Public safety is the Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top priority,â&#x20AC;? said Prince Edward County Mayor Peter Mertens. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are committed to ensuring our firefighters are equipped with the latest equipment, designed to keep our residents safe.â&#x20AC;?

Here are some great ways to give Mom what she really wants for Mother's Day...

Pedal For Hope rolls through schools Police team, students band together to fight cancer Jason Parks

Staff writer

The Pedal for Hope team pedaled around Prince Edward County this past week, bring their message of awareness and fundraising for pediatric cancer research to local elementary and secondary schools. The high energy presentation that features local and regional police officers stopped by all seven public elementary schools, St. Greg’s Catholic school and PECI over a three day span. Students and staff participate in a number of events including an ice cream eating contest and head shaving contest. Those activities help lighten the mood because pediatric cancer is a tough topic to talk about. “It's a message that is pretty sombre but we also want to make the kids realize the power that they have to help the kids with cancer,” Belleville Police Sgt. Julie Forestell told the Gazette after the group had just visited PECI. The local secondary school not only raised $1,000 for the 2013 Pedal for Hope campaign but also over $2,700 for the family of Sarah Reddick. A PECI student, Reddick is currently battling acute myeloid leukaemia and nine students including graduating student Kristen Piper doffed their locks in support of Sarah. “It's absolutely incredible for them to offer to have their heads shaved to raise money for the Reddick family,” PECI educator Greer Koutroulides said. “For Kristen, this is a huge commitment. She has prom and grad photos coming up but she was going to support Sarah no matter what.” Reddick received a day pass from the hospital where she is recovering from her latest treatment and couldn't say enough about the Pedal for Hope team and her fellow students. “To me Pedal for Hope is a reflection of the loving and caring environment that PECI and the County is.

Let Mom relax and get pampered It's not easy for Mom to look genuinely delighted when Dad and the kids, full of smiles and secrets, hand her -- for the fourth year in a row -- the infamous Mother's Day box of chocolates, along with lots of promises ("Mom, you'll be queen for the day! By the way, what's for breakfast?"). Though she tries hard, her best efforts at saying "It's just what I wanted" are getting less emphatic as the years go by. But it's true: Moms can be very hard to buy for. So what's a dad or kid supposed to do? We have a few ideas on what Mom really wants, and how to give her a day she will not soon forget! Plan Ahead This is an occasion that should focus on Mom and make her feel really special -- like the sun rises and sets on her! Try to think of what she has mentioned throughout the year. You should be making notes of these subtle comments months ahead, so keep a running list. If you hear her mention her love of tulips, don't bring home carnations. Pamper Her If there is any special time in Mom's life to show her your appreciation, this is it. A manicure, pedicure, facial or any other activity in which she can relax without a care in the world would be perfect for this day. Let Her Relax If Mom's not into a spa treatment (or if she's already treated herself), give her some time alone. Pick up a couple of her favourite DVDs, a stack of magazines she loves or a new book release -- and let her have a few hours of real me time. If you really want to give her a break, pack up the kids and visit the grandparents or friends for a few hours and let her have the house to herself. Give what she wants Mother's Day is the time to show your mom you understand and appreciate her. So tailor your gift around what she likes -- or dislikes.

If she likes to shop, buy her a gift certificate for her favourite store. If she hates weeding the garden, surprise her by doing the chore for her. Think outside the family Don't forget all the other moms you know, especially those without partners. Send those moms you love cards or call them and wish them a happy Mother's Day.

A girl's gotta eat Mom doesn't need to be chef and dishwasher on her special day. Make reservations, order her favourite takeout meal or pick up groceries and cook a nice dinner for her at home. The bottom line Just let her know how much you love her and how much you appreciate everything she does for you all year long -- it's the best gift of all.
