Collectively, the people of Prince Edward County remembered those who sacrificed everything so that they could be free. Whether it was a chilly Saturday night or a sunny, high-temperature Sunday morning, people streamed to the cenotaphs in record numbers to pay their respects at Remembrance Day ceremonies. “Seeing so many people warms your heart,” Picton Legion Branch 78 padre Stan Whitehouse said amid the glow of 275 lanterns — more than ever before — which lit up the sky around the Picton cenotaph Saturday evening, borrowing from a longstanding Dutch tradition. “These are candles that have been lighted in love and we thank you for this and the remembrances they conjure in our minds and in our hearts,” Whitehouse continued. “They enable us to appreciate the sacrifices which have taken place and glow for us as symbols of our gratitude for all that had been done for us so that we might live together in peace and in harmony.” Again in Picton the following day, it was a lengthy parade from the Legion to the cenotaph and a generous outpouring from the community to again decorate the cenotaph with another symbol of gratitude, wreaths took place after the Last Post was played and a proper tribute in silence offered. Across the way in Wellington, it was a similar scene as the “citizen brigade” formed from the steps of the Wellington United Church and spilled far back into the street for people to offer a sign of their appreciation. Wellington Legion Branch 160 organizers felt it was among of their most best attended services with a lengthy list of wreaths being placed at the gateway to the park. “It was a very good turnout and we had the largest number of people attending both the service and our reception at the branch, “said vice-presi-

dent Ken Taylor. “We were very pleased with the way people came out and paid their respects for our men and women who gave so much for us.” Wellington Legion padre Joan Blackburn reminded the large group of all ages to never forget why they attend such services regularly — those who died, those who left their families and comfortable lives, and those who live with the scars of their efforts to help bring peace to the world. “We pray that the mem- shared gratItude Wellington Legion Branch ory of their devotion will 160 president George Sainsbury and vice-president Ken forever be an example to Taylor share in a moment of silence for Canada’s military us,” she said. veterans Sunday morning.

After twice turning down exemptions to the municipality's exotic animal bylaw this summer, council drew a line on Tuesday and will allow the Emmanuel Baptist Church to bring three domesticated camels to Picton early next month. Once again there was some public resistance to allowing exemptions to the bylaw, but after discussion council decided this case was different. Speaking on behalf of the church was Henry Grove. Grove said the camels would come to Picton as part of a live walk through nativity story on Dec. 1. He said the show would the show would run in conjunction with the Picton BIA and A County Christmas. “All monies raised through this day will be used to send children to Pleasant Bay camp. We're concentrating on children who normally wouldn't be able to afford going to camp in the summer,” he said. He said the day would consist of a concert in the evening, which will feature local talent such as the County Kids Choir. He said it would also feature a Christmas carnival and the live nativity walk though. “It consists of eight scenes and 40 actors. A huge part of this story, and creating huge excitement locally and further afield, are three camels complete with AZA (Association of Zoos and Aquariums) accreditation,” Grove said. He said the camels will be coming from the Bowmanville Zoo. Residents Annette McIntosh and Angela Lammes again lead the charge against exemptions to the bylaw. McIntosh cited several Toronto Star articles where such show animals had escaped captivity, injured someone or been injured themselves.

Cider creators crowned Wassail 2012 king and queen Winemakers gear up for celebratory year-end festival AdAm BrAmBurger

Staff writer

Their Fool on the Hill brand may have a jester on its labels, but Grant Howes and Jenifer Dean are now county wine royalty. Monday night, the duo behind the County Cider Company was crowned as the king and queen of the Prince Edward County Winegrowers Association Wassail (PECWGA) festival. PECWGA chair Lynn Sullivan said the pair was chosen for their commitment to excellence and their support for the industry since its onset in the county. “Grant and Jen have been here since the very beginning and Grant in particular has been a tireless advocate for Prince Edward County tourism, grape growing and apple growing,” she said. “(Grant) put Prince Edward County on the map as far as cider goes and certainly gone a long way to help with the

Howes said it was an honour to follow his longtime neighbour in earning the recognition of his peers. “Ed was one of the founders of not only grape growing, but wine growing here. It’s an honour that it has come to the east of the county as well,” he said. “We did know Ed very well and were neighbours for well over 30 years. We remember when Ed first came down, it was a rundown apple orchard. He’s done a remarkable job.” Howes said the Wassail festival, which runs the last two weekends of this month and first weekend in December recognizes the good news stories like that coming from the labours of many.

In their collaborative effort, Girard co-wrote the story with Taylor and led the way in , directing and cinematography, while Noth’s expertise lie in the production and editing of the work, including the efforts to make 10 actors charging into battle look like 500 through computer animation and the use of a green screen to show Pierpoint’s youth in Senegal. After close to two months in studio, the first minute premiered Oct. 15 at Toronto’s Royal Theatre. Though the shorts don’t receive the type of critical review feature films do, Noth said the piece was warmly received and added that he believed it fits in with the standard previously set. “We watched the Heritage Minutes people had voted the 10 best and it really did hold up with the tone and message conveyed,� he said. Girard added the pieces are free public service announcements and they meet Canadian content (CANCON) requirements, so she

expects that most television networks will be eager to air the work. As for the future, Noth and Girard say they’d welcome a chance to work on future Heritage Minutes.

would begin shooting for two days at the Westfield Heritage Village near Hamilton. The first story featured 68year-old Richard Pierpoint, a black man from the Niagara region who had earlier fought with Loyalist to earn his freedom from slavery. When the War of 1812 broke out, he convinced the British he could fight and enlisted a troop to black men to fight to keep their freedom. In the film, which is now available for viewing on the Historica-Dominion web site, the Pierpoint character sends a powerful message to a British military leader — “I was born a free man and I intend to die one. Your officers fight for land and money. I fight for freedom.� The other short will feature the Grand River Mohawks and their efforts in the Battle of Queenston Heights after Brock fell. It will be released in the spring. Much of the preparation to shoot took longer than the time the cameras were rolling, Noth said. “We had to be really economical, so we actually shot for about 20 minutes a day.� Decisions then and in the editing room, however, were no simple matter. The pair had a War of 1812 historian, a film making consultant, an African Canadian consultant, and Aboriginal consultants to consult with throughout the creative process as well as a creative partner in co-writer and filmmaker Bill Taylor. “You can agonize for so long over such minute details

Many Canadians claim to have a greater sense of their own history because they once watched a Heritage Minute on the television. Between 1991 and 2005, 66 one-minute films were created and released to highlight important points in Canadian history before funding dried up. This year, the HistoricaDominion Institute, a national charitable organization aiming to promote Canadian history and civic identity received funding to tell more stories about the War of 1812. For the first two tales of the past , it turned to a pair of new Prince Edward County residents. Having grown up in Chatham and Shelburne respectively, Ryan Noth and Tess Girard had a keen interest to return and work in a rural setting in Ontario. Upon visiting Prince Edward County on vacation, they particularly enjoyed the local food connections and the growing arts scene here and they decided to relocate from Toronto to start their own company, Fifth Town Films, from a home in the Cherry Valley area. Almost to the day they moved in, the pair received word the Historica-Dominion Institute was calling for proposals to shoot the first of the series of short films. Amid the boxes and chaos, they reviewed past Heritage Minutes, thought about telling stories of regular people making a difference, and put their plan before the company. Girard recalls being thrilled when contacted to begin discussions and negotiations on the project. “ When we applied for it, it was kind of a dream, it was a high-profile project and a part of the popular culture of our youth,� she said. “When we got it, we couldn't believe it. It was a tall order to live up to. Something everyone looks up to.� Nearly four-and-a-half months of work went into shaping the project with the green light coming on the two installments in late July. In late August, Fifth Town

Chidren’s Aid Society plans to merge Prince Edward returns to amalgamation table with neighbours AdAm BrAmBurger

StAff writer

Within a week of announcing it was looking to work with another agency to broaden its service and support base, the Children’s Aid Society of Prince Edward announced Friday its intention to fully merge with Highland Shores Children’s Aid (HSCA). The Highland Shores Children’s Aid is itself a product of a merger between the previous Northumberland and Hastings societies, which took place last December. The local society had actually been involved in those merger talks straight through until the end, with senior staff and board members saying they’d ultimately have to see some financial benefit to doing the deal with the partnering agencies. Ultimately, the Prince Edward society elected to stay on its own at the time, issuing

releases stating it felt it could best serve and represent its clients as an indepedent entity. On Nov. 2, board chair Elaine Philip was quoted in a release distributed to media by an HSCA staff member which suggested the board had decided there was some use in fostering partnerships to improve its ability to serve. “As an agency, we are always looking at ways to enhance the services we provide,” Philip said in the release. “The board of directors has carefully reviewed all factors including future financial viability and has decided that a partnership is the best way forward.” Philip said the board undertook a thorough review of aspects such as the county’s declining child population and funding levels and it decided changes were necessary. She said that doesn’t change the mandate the society has. “Ensuring the safety and well-being of the children and families in Prince Edward County is our No. 1 priority,” she said. “A partnership will strengthen the capacity to sustain serv-

ices and provide the best care and protection to those who need it.” Following that announcement, the boards of both organizations voted in favour of a further merger that would bring Prince Edward County into the fold with its two neighbours. To facilitate the transition, there will be a reconfigured board that replaces some Prince Edward board members with members from the HSCA board as the two societies work toward a smooth amalgamation. process. Philip indicated the board’s vision for the merger is to see the strengths the Prince Edward society has built upon throughout its history incorporated with those of the HSCA to ensure that families and children receive the same level of service wherever they reside within the geographical borders of the merged agency. HSCA chair Darcey French added the amalgamation will build upon the planning the agencies already worked on, while considering there are some unique needs in each of the areas being served.

Three charged with child sex offences in foster homes

The OPP charged three people following reports in the past year of historical sexual assaults involving foster children in the county. Following a teenage girl’s disclosure to police of assaults between 2003-2004 in a Bloomfield home, Richard Fildey, 44, of Cameron, Ontario was charged with sexual interference, sexual assault, and sexual exploitation. He is scheduled to appear in Picton court Nov. 21. In June, a woman reported she had been sexual assaulted in 2007 while living in a Bloomfield foster home. Following that complaint, police charged Sher-

ilee Slatter, 34, of Sudbury with sexual assault, conspiracy to commit an indictable offence, distributing child pornography, and two counts of sexual exploitation. Slatter is to appear in Picton court Dec. 5. Also in June, police heard a teenage girl disclose she was sexual assaulted in 2010 in a Bloomfield foster home. Ronald Slatter, 63, of Bloomfield was charged with sexual assault, sexual interference, and sexual exploitation. He is slated to appear in Picton court Nov. 28. -Adam Bramburger, Staff

PRINCE EDWARD COUNTY

Looking back in the

Picton Gazette 80 years ago — 1932

■ More than 200 veterans attended the Picton Legion’s Armistice Night Banquet, served by volunteers to ex-soldiers for a nominal cost of 25 cents. The men toasted their departed comrades and renewed acquaintances with one another. Guest speaker Judge McLean said he was not in sympathy with people who professed their loyalty, yet at the same time criticized their “mother country” while influenced and inspired by agencies of Socialism and Communism. ■ A new movement in England called the Empire Homemakers’ Institute, under the direction of a Canadian, Mrs. Bowker, aimed to stress the importance and value of using only goods from the British empire within the household. ■ Bell Canada was advertising lower rates with a 30-cent long distance call.

50 years ago — 1962

■ Cherry Valley was the new home of Canada’s first federally licenced rabbit processing facility, Pic-Freez Industries Ltd. It was noted that Canadians at that time consumed 10,000 rabbits per week and the rabbit was being looked at to help the country satisfy the food needs of its growing population as rabbits multiply at a very quick rate. ■ A Napanee man told a story in a local diner about how he had stopped to help someone change a tire while driving in the United States. He refused payment for his services, but left his address with the man he helped. The good Samaritan, Lorne Clarke, later received a colour television set from entertainer Perry Como. ■ Canada had a bumper wheat crop in 1962 with a 102 per cent higher yield than the previous drought-inflicted year.

30 years ago — 1982

■ Members of the Prince Edward Chamber of Commerce had a special morning session with OPP Const. Don Watt and private investigator Gary Wickett to teach them what they need to know about stopping internal and customer theft. Storekeepers were told their best defence is having a working knowledge of the law, keeping inventory records, and discouraging theft through prosecution. ■ Vandals broke into the new marina building in Picton and emptied two fire extinguishers on the floor. The estimated damages, including the replacement of locks and windows was $500. The incident came just days after a similar report of discharged fire extinguishers and five vandalized boats at the Fireside Inn. Police arrested an 18-year-old suspect. ■ Don King swept back into office as Picton’s mayor, defeating Bob King by a three-to-one margin. The fall municipal elections saw a total of 10 seats at the County council table change hands.

10 years ago — 2002

■ Due to an exceptional year in Ontario Works placements, the County received funding to install $16,000 worth of playground equipment in Milford, the village’s first playground not at the public school. South Marysburgh recreation committee members provided free labour to install the equipment at the fairgrounds. ■ The County’s public works committee decided it would allow exceptions to its waste management bylaw to allow sanitary disposal of diapers and medical items.

Hunkering down for the winter months

It is always a crisp November day after a good freeze when I fire up the recycling mower and mulch the accumulation of leaves on our lawn. That is when the leaves pulverize the best, with one pass of the mower reducing the thick accumulation to a fine, powdery dust. Only then, do I winterize the lawn mower, change the oil, sharpen the blade and give the mower a good cleaning with the air compressor before putting it to bed for the winter. Once the two mowers and the rotary brush mower have been cleaned and sharpened, and the travel trailer is winterized, and the snow blower is mounted, do we tackle the gigantic pile of pruned tree branches and put them through the wood chipper. Winterization of our lawn and garden equipment signals the completion of the fall tasks. We are ready. Bring on the cold weather and snow! Preparing for winter is something my father was very organized at, and he put our farm machinery to bed with the same love and care as I give my lawn mowers. Nothing, not even drag harrows, was permitted to remain outside in the winter. Machinery was stored in the shed with those devoted to harvesting stored at the back of the building, and spring tillage equipment close to the door. This exercise was so routine every year, it was as if my father had been programmed to do this, almost instinctively, once there was a chill in the air. It is genetic programming or instinct that causes

OUTDOOR RAMBLES TERRY SPRAGUE

mammals to do prepare for winter in much the same way. I haven’t seen our chipmunks for several days, so I am guessing that they have hunkered down in the remains of an old barn foundation, where I saw them come out of several times this summer. The chipmunk is often cited as an example of a hibernator, but how many animals truly hibernate? Not many, I dare say, and certainly not the chipmunk, if we want to get technical about it. True hibernators enter a prolonged state of torpor during the long winter months, when metabolism slows down, and there are very few mammals that do that nonstop through the entire winter. It’s too dangerous to sleep your life away in winter when reserves are low, with no replenishment. Even the groundhog has been known to come out of its burrow and look around. However, the chipmunk does go under a remarkable

transformation at this time of the year during its time underground. This perky little mammal whose heart races at a brisk 350 beats per minute, drops into a whisper mode, its heart beating at a modest four beats per minute, barely enough for us to claim it is alive. The body temperature drops from 36 degrees to just three. But every two weeks or so, it wakes up to have a snack of its cached food supply. It will also take advantage of the opportunity to urinate in a special chamber reserved for that occasion. I am sure many of us would be happy if we could manage an entire night without getting up to urinate, never mind two weeks! Come April, though, it springs to life with renewed vigour. Friends John and Janet Foster of the Tweed area, when not filming whales in the Arctic or wolves in Algonquin, feed up to a half dozen chipmunks at their back door. During a barbeque at their home a few years ago, there were no fewer than three at one time, perched on their haunches on the picnic table, not more than a few inches from my elbow. It was fall and we spent much of the day providing them with peanuts to cache away in their burrows for winter. What is amazing is that mammals don’t have to check their calendar to prepare for winter. It is second nature to them. It’s all triggered by the photo period, when days become shorter and there are signs of fall. Survival kicks in, and each species is different

in how it prepares for winter. Some, we might think, are doomed when you look at the wood frog who dawdles until it freezes solid. Its liver produces glucose which is circulated through the body like an antifreeze, protecting the vital organs. It allows itself to freeze completely through, gradually thawing in the spring and continuing on its way as though nothing happened. Others, like my late father, are more organized. They put on layers of fat, and work nonstop salting away an adequate food supply, and seeking out shelter where they can be spared from the driving, cutting winds of winter. Come spring, they realize that their efforts have paid off in handsome dividends, for they are alive. And as animals that just live from day to day and taking what Nature dishes out, they probably haven’t a clue as to why their system is suddenly kicking into this preparation mode, for surely they can’t reason that a season known as winter is coming. On the farm, we knew that winter was on its way and that certain preparations had to be made to survive it intact, and prepare for spring. For animals, they don’t question their instinct – they just go ahead and do it, as their ancestors before them have done for thousands of years.

Another call for the Liberals to open Queen’s Park

A full month has now passed since Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty announced his intention to resign as the province’s top politician and when he asked to have the provincial legislature at Queen’s Park prorogued for an indefinite period of time. During this time, McGuinty has been able to shuffle his cabinet to replace people defecting from positions, showing, presumably that they are still trying to govern even while MPPs like Todd Smith sit at home in the ridings , limited from the regular committee work, votes, public questions and other duties that Ontario residents are paying them handsomely to fulfill in the legislature. At the time, McGuinty said the proroguing of Queen’s Park would allow his executive time to deal with some of the pressing public contract negotiations without the disruptive nature of politics influencing the process. As witnessed by local teachers taking their frustrations out about being in strike position without the ability to collective bargain, it doesn’t appear the recess has produced much fruit in the short term with that regard. Could it be, then — as most pundits expected — the Liberals are trying to keep the doors of Queen’s Park shuttered until they ultimately pick a successor to the premier? It would appear so. If McGuinty can casually announce that he’s shuffled his cabinet, he should be able to put those people he has selected in front of the house so they may do their jobs and show their accountability to the Ontario electorate. Further, if he can replace them, surely the Liberal caucus could go one step beyond that and find someone to fill his shoes as an interim leader just to ensure that Ontario continues to move forward with a government in place that doing all the work it needs to do to improve the province’s financial standing in these tough times. Given that Ontario’s government is presently standing as a minority, it seems even more prudent to ensure that committees are taking place so that all parties can offer opinions on the deals they should have to ratify by a vote on the floor one day. The Progressive Conservatives and NDP have already shown they don’t have the will to work together to overthrow the government and force an election at this time, so it seems puzzling why the Liberals are so fearful of just getting down to business. Maybe, as some have suggested, there are bigger scandals to hit the fan that will paint whomever leads the party with a brush that won’t be too appealing to the voters. If that’s the case, it won’t matter if it is McGuinty or whomever in the top spot, there will be political consequences. The legislature has been halted long enough and it’s time to put politicians, pages like Olivia Fox, and anyone else associated with the formal proceedings of governance back to work. The reasoning for prororguing the house seems like nothing more than an excuse at this point, and it is hard to imagine any votes are going to be saved by it.

Music, photography, a craft show, and a change in hours

Three special events are taking place at the library this weekend, including a concert, photography workshop, and a Christmas craft sale. On Saturday, Nov. 17 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Picton branch, join professional photographer Kelly Taylor for a free workshop entitled “Using Your Camera to Take Great Kids Pics”. Bring your camera and your child(ren) and learn how to take family photos you’ll be proud of. A DSL or equivalent digital camera, and a memory stick or blank CDR disc should be brought as well. For a donation to cover costs, you can take home a family photo for your Christmas card. Registration is required and space is limited. Contact Kelly by e-mail at: ktaylor@peclibrary.org or call 613-3992023. At the Wellington branch also on Saturday, Nov. 17 at 2 p.m, enjoy a free concert by musician and singer Fraser Hardman. Hardman performs regularly with other County musicians including as a member of the high energy Celtic duo McGreevy and Hardman. The versatile musician has a special love for jazz songs and Tin Pan Alley standards from the early last century as well. He has been performing this music most recently as part of The Dazzlebugs with Jeanette Arsenault. His Wellington concert, entitled “They don’t write songs like that anymore”, will highlight Hardman’s special affinity for the songs of old. On Sunday, Nov. 18, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., visit the Consecon branch library and do some early Christmas shopping at the Christmas Crafts Show and Sale. The sale is a fundraiser for the Consecon Library Restoration and Renovation Projects Fund. Available will be homemade lavender products, handmade chocolates, pet wearables, wreathes, scarves, crochet items, jams, jellies and preserves, goat milk soap, photo cards, Scottish specialty foods, local interest photography, and more. The show’s organizer, volunteer Ena Walton, planned the sale focusing on offering a diverse selection of handmade and homemade goods at reasonable prices. Fifteen donated prizes will be raffled, and tea, coffee and hot cider will be served as well as Walton’s specialty, hot lavender tea. Make a day of it and enjoy the Consecon Santa Claus parade at 1pm. The Consecon branch of

the library is also one of the four rural community branches that will have new hours beginning Tuesday, Dec. 4. “In an effort to provide improved service,” explains Library CEO Barbara Sweet, “we have streamlined the branch hours at the Consecon, Ameliasburgh, Bloomfield and Milford branch libraries so that every branch is open daily from Tuesday to Saturday.” The branches will be open from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. or from 2pm to 5pm, with each alternating morning and afternoon hours. “The limited evening open hours at these branches are relatively quiet in the winter,” says Sweet, “so it makes sense to be open more often during the daytime hours as these are the most useful.” Picton and Wellington branch hours remain unchanged, including evening hours. The rural branches will be available after regular hours in the evening, however, for programs and special events. “Book clubs and other groups can meet during the evenings if they choose and will have the branch all to themselves,” adds Sweet. Sweet stresses that this new schedule is a trial and invites inputs from library members. The change was decided upon after being presented at a number of focus group sessions and the feedback was positive. “People like the idea that they can access their nearby community branch almost every day.” For a preview of the hours, which will change as of Tuesday, Dec. 4, please visit the library’s website blog at www.peclibrary.org or contact the library at 613476-5962.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Get the facts on Canada’s trade deal with China

As Matthew Carroll, of Leadnow.ca , points out so clearly in the following information, the federal government has not been transparent and accountable to the public, with no real debate in parliament,no vote and no reports on the risks. China is just as important as the U.S., and there was a whole election fought over NAFTA. If this is such a good deal, why do they not want us to hear about it? Here are some important facts for you to be aware of, then let your MP and the PM know what you think before it is too late... ■ Any day now, Prime Minister Harper could ratify the secretive and extreme Canada-China FIPA investor deal. The agreement would bind

Canada for 31 years and let foreign corporations sue the Canadian government for huge amounts of money if we do anything to limit their profits. Worse yet, these lawsuits would be decided by unaccountable arbitrators in secret tribunals outside of Canada’s court system. ■ Thousands of Canadians have already come together across political lines to tell our MPs to stop this terrible deal, but instead of having a genuine, open conversation with Canadians, Conservative MPs just keep sending out identical, misleading talking points written by the Prime Minister’s Office. ■ Our government has not been transparent and accountable to the public.

The Picton Gazette welcomes letters to the editor of 500 words or less. The letters may be edited for clarity, legal ramifications, length or general taste at the editor’s discretion. We also reserve the right to refuse to publish submitted letters for the same reasons. Letters published do not necessarily reflect the views of the Gazette, its publisher, or staff. Submitted items become the property of the Picton Gazette.

There has been no real debate in Parliament, no vote, and no reports on the risks. There was a whole election fought over NAFTA. If this is such a good deal, why don’t they want us to hear about it? ■ FIPA would let foreign corporations sue Canada if we limit their profits. We will be at the whim of unaccountable arbitrators with a record of putting corporate profits before democratic control. NAFTA has showed us that bigger countries have the advantage in this unfair system. Canada has lost every case brought against us by a US company, costing us millions and undermining our democracy. ■ The lawsuits will be

settled in secret tribunals outside Canadian courts. Unlike all other international treaties, this FIPA lets the Canadian and Chinese government keep the public in the dark about the facts and arguments of the cases. So we will not know how these lawsuits are undermining our democracy and economy. There’s only one guarantee: we will find out how many millions (or billions) of taxpayer dollars we’ll have to handover to foreign corporations. Please go to fipafacts.ca to learn more and send a message to stop this secretive and extreme investor deal. Don Ross RR2 Milford

A veteran’s salute to local cadets

As a veteran with more than 30 years service, I have attended many Nov. 11 parades. Sunday, here in Piton, I was very impressed by the local cadets, especially the

Community groups to bring forward proposals by Dec. 7

County calls for grant applications Chad Ibbotson

Staff writer

The municipality is again calling for funding applications under its community grant program. A release from the County dated Nov. 8 invites not for profit community groups and organizations to apply for funding that may be available within the 2013 budget. The community grants program provides financial assistance of up to $5,000 in either in-kind or monetary support for a specific project, event or program. Community development co-ordinator Wendy Lane said the number of applications received varies year-to-year, but said last year the municipality received about 25. She said the amount of funding given out each year varies and is subject to council approval. Last year, $14,800 was awarded under the program. “Each year it could vary depending on what's asked for and what's available,” she said. Lane said grant funding is limited and there are specific eligibility criteria that defines which applicants qualify for the program. While that funding is sub-

ject to council approval as part of the budget process, all applications are reviewed in detail by the community grants program committee on which councillors Kevin Gale, Alec Lunn, Janice Maynard and mayor Peter Mertens sit. The committee makes recommendations to council. Lane said there's no set budget for how much will be spent on community grants each year. “It's really dependant on what might be available and that's a decision of council,” she said. The program provides financial assistance either in seed money or in-kind support to non-profit, community-based groups and organizations which provide programs, services or other activities that contribute to the municipality and community at large. The release says the program was developed in order to improve access and support the sustainability and promotion of arts, culture, environment, heritage and recreation. In order to be eligible for the program applicants must be a new or existing not for profit organization or community group and be located and conduct the

majority of activities within Prince Edward County. The applicants must show sound financial management and be able to demonstrate they can provide services and programs in an effective, accessible, open and inclusive manner. Applicants must also participate in the required Accessible Customer Service Training. Organizations which already receive support through another Prince Edward County Funding program, individuals, forprofit businesses and organizations with political affiliations are not eligible for a community grant. Costs for major capital equipment or renovations and financing of deficits are also excluded. More information about funding guidelines, eligibility criteria and application forms can be found at www.pecounty.on.ca. Applications can also be found at any county library, the Edward Building in Picton or at Shire Hall. Any grants over $5,000 require a separate written request and presentation to council. The deadline for applications if Friday, Dec. 7 at 4 p.m. and must be submitted to Shire Hall

Take a warm bath, read a little or listen to some quiet music in the evening. Get fresh air and exercise during the day, but remember: exercise before bed can keep you awake. Go to bed and get up at the same time every day. Don't take naps during the day. Avoid coffee, tea or soft drinks after 5 p.m. Don't smoke or drink alcohol in the evening—it can keep you awake. Don't eat spicy food in the evening. If you often wake up during the night to go to the bathroom and can't get back to sleep, try not to drink very much before you go to bed. But remember: if you need to take medication at bedtime,

Have you ever felt anxious or worried, lonely, or had trouble sleeping? Sometimes when people talk to the doctor about these problems, they get a prescription for sleeping pills or tranquillizers. Although these medications may help people feel better for a short while, they often do not solve all the problems. Medications that help people feel calm and help one to sleep during a crisis are not meant to be used for more than seven to 10 days. Instead of taking sleeping pills and tranquillizers, try these healthy ideas. If you can't sleep: Make your bedroom more comfortable, keep it cool and quiet. Get up and do something else.

Secondary teachers take Bill 115 fight to streets Information pickets show frustration with legislation Jason Parks

Staff writer

Local educators along with support staff and custodians took to Picton's Main Street on Monday afternoon after talks between the Ministry of Education and the Ontario Secondary School Teacher's Federation broke down earlier that morning. OSSTF president Ken Coran announced that, as a result in the cessation of talks between the teachers’ union and the government, members in 20 school boards including the Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board are in a strike position and will commence “strike action.” Several secondary school teachers were joined Monday by educational assistants, support staff, elementary teachers and custodial staff in front of Prince Edward-Hasting MPP Todd Smith's office for an information picket that was mirrored in Belleville, Bancroft and Trenton. The goal of the pickets was to show the level of educator's frustrations at Bill 115. The bill, which Smith and his fellow Progressive Conservative colleagues supported, was enacted by the government as a fiscal restraint measure as the province deals with a $16 billion budget gap. Also entitled the Putting Students First Act, the bill imposes a two-year wage freeze, includes legislation preventing teachers from striking and prevents districts to bargain with Boards of Education locally. Without having the ability to strike and grind the education process to halt, OSSTF members across the province will be taking strike actions or sanctions which include not attending staff meetings or meetings at board offices, not participating in parents nights or meeting parents after school hours and members will not be administering the annual provincial literacy and numeracy tests. District president Doug Ferguson said the decision to

impose these sanctions was done so not to impede student learning but to send a message to the province. “The job actions that we've targeted are very specific and are designed to place pressure on administration and government initiatives,” Ferguson said. “Students will see very little change in their day-to-day instruction.” Ultimately, the OSSTF and members of District 29 would like to see Bill 115 repealed and Ferguson said he was encouraged that Gerrard Kennedy, a candidate to replace outgoing Premier Dalton McGuinty, was in favour of such an action “That might be the seed of change and a sign some are starting to see the bill was unnecessary and counter productive,” Ferguson said. “In addition to to the bill's repeal, we are hoping to apply pressure to convince the government to back off restrictions they are placing on collective bargaining so that our union and the employer can bargain in good faith and bargain freely.” Smith, whose constituency offices were closed on Monday in observance of Remembrance Day, said he would continue to stand by his support of Bill 115, a piece of legislation that he admitted was flawed somewhat. “We didn't support every-

thing that's contained in that bill but after trying for a year to get this government to agree to a badly needed wage freeze, it would have been very hypocritical of us to then reject their efforts,” Smith said Tuesday. Smith, whose wife Tawnya is a secondary school teacher, said he respects and supports the great work that educators undertake in the riding. He added that if his party had it their way, they would have broadened the scope of

the wage freeze. “We would have brought it across the public sector and not targeted teachers like the government has done,” Smith said. “It's unfair, the pain should have been spread out across the public sector.” In light of the announced sanctions, the chairman of the Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board Dwayne Inch said in a statement that the board was aware of the breakdowns in the talks and would hope for a forthcoming resolution. “We're aware that recent discussions between the Ministry of Education and Ontario Secondary School Teachers' Federation did not result in an agreement. We're disappointed as a school board, as we believe that the Ministry of Education holds the key to a solution in this particular dispute,” Inch said. “Our secondary teachers are in a legal strike position and it is our current understanding that they have withdrawn from doing selected responsibilities. “Senior staff have worked with administrators at secondary schools to make decisions around temporary additional support to ensure student safety. Our schools are open and we're monitoring the situation daily. Our Board continues to be committed to providing safe, caring and respectful learning environments.

New funding formula requires a shift in thinking, Egberts tells council More services will be provided in community, not in hospitals Jason Parks

Staff writer

In spite of forthcoming budget shortfalls that will see the Quinte Healthcare Corporation (QHC) attempt to stretch every dollar, its President and CEO believes the move from Global Budgeting to the new Health Based Allocation Model (HBAM) is direction Ontario's Ministry of Health Long-term care must go in. In a deputation to Prince Edward County Council Tuesday evening designed to keep local leaders apprised of the operation of QHC, Mary Clare Egberts forecasted tough times ahead for the four hospitals that make up corporation but added it was a challenge she was up to. Currently saddled with a $1.5-million budget gap that must be solved by March 31,

2013, Egberts said global funding is a thing of the past as most health care systems in the rest of Canada and the rest of the world have moved towards a patient-based model. “It's the right formula for patients and communities going forward,” Egberts said. “It is all about ensuring sustainable healthcare for populations into the future. We cannot continue to grow hospital services at the rate they've been growing, particularly in the financial situation our province is in.” While it might be the correct formula over the long term, the HBAM rollout will give QHC senior administration a severe workout over the next few years. Provided there are no changes or sudden influxes of cash, QHC could be looking at a $10-million shortfall in

2013-2014 and a $150-million gap by 2014-2015 according to numbers provided by Egberts. In order to avoid this, QHC is looking at at a multiprong approach that includes reducing waste and improving quality as part of the new funding has quality-based drivers for efficient hospitals. As well, QHC will be examining all revenue sources and undertaking some clinical re-engineering in which they define the role of each hospital and shift services appropriately. Egberts said all hospitals in the Southeast Local Health Integration Network are undertaking similar tasks in order to bridge current and future budget gaps. “We are taking the approach at QHC that all of our hospitals will remain viable and strong but they may be

doing different things in the future then what they are doing today,” Egberts said. A recent example undertaken by QHC was the scale back of the outpatient physiotherapy program. Ultimately, it will be a paradigm shift in that will take hospitals out of the centre of the health-care wheel and this shift is coming to the horizon rapidly. “The community needs to understand that hospitals will no longer be the centre of the health care system. Many more services are going to be delivered in the community and that means services in your home or closer to your home,” she said. Councillor Terry Shortt appreciated the report from Egberts and wondered about the breakdown between rural hospitals and urban hospitals when it came to the new HBAM formula, “I understand the position QHC is being put in but I'm also quite concerned about the healthcare of our residents

compared to the care people are getting in the large urban centres,” he said. Egberts said the formula computes better for hospitals that have high efficiencies and hospitals in area of significant population growth and, given those two key factors, hospitals in the Greater Toronto Area benefitted from the new funding system. The president and chief executive officer said she has been reminding the LHIN of the needs of an elderly population like that of Picton. “Picton is one of the most elderly populations in the Ontario and the formula takes into account, but not as much (as population growth),” she said. “We have elderly and sick (meaning chronic diseases) population that is not growing over all, and that will mean reductions in funding in further years.” In order for the hospitals in the SE LHIN including Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital to remain viable, success will equate to

keeping the population well and dealing with chronic illness proactively so residents don't wind up in the hospital. “This is a challenge for all of health care and basically the community to take up. In the past, healthcare was getting increases of seven per cent a year and that's just not sustainable,” Egberts said. Hospitals will see zeroper-cent funding increases while Community Care Access Centres and Community Support Organizations are seeing increases in provincial funding. “It's a shift. Dollars are now going out in the community and it's the right thing to do. It's going to make sure that we maintain our populations health and have sustainable healthcare in the future,” she said. “Deputations like tonight are the beginning the of process of educating the community that there will be changes in what the hospital will provide for our patients.”

Grandfather and grandson add genuine quality to roles in Tuesdays With Morrie Zaffino, a veteran of several PECT productions said he brought the play to director Lynn Fennell both because he believed in the message and because he wanted to act with Smith, his grandfather, before the latter gave up the stage after more than 60 years. That special bond, plus the notion the characters are both within a couple years of the actors’ real life ages in the scrip adds a genuine quality to the production that is hard to create otherwise. “It makes it more special,” said Zaffino. “It’s kind of a blurry line between the show and the real world.” Smith agreed. “It’s a unique thing when a grandfather and a grandson have a chance to work together and do something like this,” he said. With minimalist staging, the audience can be drawn right into the intimate conversation between the two men and they can picture Schwartz’s surroundings as they wish. At first, there is some tension with the men reuniting and not understanding one another at all, but over time the bond develops again, as much like a prodigal son, Schwartz never lost faith that Albom would one day learn the lessons he would

The clock was ticking as the scene sets to open the Prince Edward Community Theatre (PECT) production of Tuesdays with Morrie. It was ticking for Morrie Schwartz (David Smith), a professor trying to cope with the onset of ALS, and it’s ticking for Mitch Albom (Michael Zaffino), his former student who has found fame and fortune as one of the best known sportswriters in the U.S. In this adaptation of a true story, their paths cross ed again after Albom saw Schwartz on Nightline talking about his illness. He believed he should fly across the country to pay one last courtesy of saying goodbye before his onetime mentor dies. All the while, he was consumed with just fitting in the visit amid his myriad of moneymaking interviews and media appearances Upon arrival, however, Albom saw that Schwartz still has a lesson to teach about the value of a life, the importance of sharing it,

instead of investing in work and money, it’s investing in people. That’s the biggest message,” he said. “I think it’s something everybody is guilt of in some way, spending the extra hour at work instead of at home and what a lifetime of that can do to a person.”

teach in his “touchy, feely” absurdist ways. Though there humour in the juxtaposition of the two characters on stage, which playwright Jeffrey Hatcher has managed to maintain from Albom’s original book, Smith said audiences can prepare to run th gamut of emotions given the story will make them think about their own mortality and their own choices in life. “I think there’s a possibility because of the story that people are going to be very emotional about this,” he said. “It’s a true story and it’s about living, but it is also about death and a lot of people have dealt with that.” Smith said it may be a show that caters to an older audience that can derive a fair bit of meaning from its own experiences. On a personal level, he said he found it ironic that he always said he hoped to keep performing, even if he had to go on stage in a wheelchair to do so — and in this play, he spends the majority of his time confined to that chair. “When I said that, I was

never thinking it might actually happen,” he joked. “I’m not sure if this is going to be my last kick at the ca, but if it is, it has been a good one.” Zaffino also said the show is one o the most challenging pieces of theatre he’s ever done because it is just two characters on stage sharing dialogue and also because only one of those characters can freely move. “There are so many little moves I do because I’m the only one who can. It’s a technical nightmare — the toughest challenge — but I’m glad I can do this.” The show was to open with a pay-what-you-can matinee preview today for Loyola students with the proceeds going to support ALS organizations. The regular curtain rises tomorrow night at Mt. Tabor for two weekends of Friday and Saturday performances at 8 p.m. Tickets are available in advance for $14 at the Gazette, Kelly’s , the SideStreet Gallery, by phone at 613-476-5925 or by e-mail at lynnfennell@gmail.com.

Shuttle bus, preplanned tours among improvements to wine festival WASSAIL, from page 2

Wassail is a tradition in England that goes back to preChristian times there — it’s not just about apples, but renewal and growth and all things good about agriculture and i think you can say that about the county's tradition of wassail as well,” said Howes. “It's all things good. It's not only about making wine and growing grapes, it's about living in the county and having a

lifestyle in the county that involves agriculture, not only grapes and apples but everything.” The tradition involves carolers traveling around from home-to-home and being welcomed in to escape the winter cold with a feast of food and grog. Within the county, the members of the PECWGA decided they’d put their own twist on the activity to create a hit marketing event to extend

the retail season. Guests are invited to drive to the participating wineries and if they’re willing to sing a seasonal tune upon arrival, they’ll be able to get free tastes of mulled or regular wines and taste foods selected to be paired with the beverages. “It’s a big jump when you compare it to a regular November weekend,” said Sally Peck of Sugarbush Vineyards, the previous Wassail queen. “It has the potential to grow into a big shoulder season festival.” While many visitors do the Wassail loop on their own to do Christmas shopping and experience the wineries at their own pace, there is also a new transportation option that will allow people to really get into the spirit of the event. “We were really keen to get a shuttle service going this year,” said Wassail committee chair Mary MacDonald. “We thought it would be more fun

for people to be able to gather ina few places where they can meet us and get on the shuttle.” For $15 each Saturday of the festival, individuals can receive admittance to the buses, which will be shuttling people among the 16 participating wineries, with stops by each winery about every 20 minutes. The shuttle routes start with entry points at Huff Estates, Lacey Estates, By Chadsey’s Cairns, and Rosehall Run. Another option, which organizers are encouraging potential guests to book in advance is a tour bus which will stop at five pre-selected wineries for about 20 minutes at each stop. The two bus systems connect to one another. MacDonald said with the tours taking place this time of year, people can get an understanding of some of the differences that make the Prince Edward County designated viticulture area different from

other areas within the province and country. '”We have a keen interest in getting people to understand we have to bury our vines in the county. We lose about a month compared to Niagara, the other, bigger DVA in Ontario. We're busy sweating it out in the vineyards now burying our wines under their little bed of dirt so we can all provide you with wines for next year.’ Prior to heading out the wineries, Wassailers have the option of visiting www.thecountywines.com to print out a passport for the event, which can be used to win prizes. “There is a passport they can print off. They need only three stamps from three wineries to enter,” said Peck. “Once someone gets three, they should start again for another chance to win.” The passport, Wassail song books, lists of the offerings by individual winery and links to purchase tickets for the bus events are located at www.thecountywines.com. Among the prizes offered are a night’s stay at the Inn at Huff Estates, a gift certificate from the Painted Peppercorn, two tickets to an upcoming Festival Players show, a gift certificate from Williams Fami-

ly Diner, a night at the Attic in Bloomfield, and several different art prizes. The Wassail festival is also partnering with Slow Food The County this year in the hopes that some visitors will choose to take the tours, but also attend the Slow and Sinful Gala Nov. 24 at the Highline Hall. The Slow Food event pairs local cuisine with local bubblies. Some other events overlapping the festival this year include the Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital Auxiliary’s Festival of Trees, four Santa Claus parades, Countylicious fixed-price dinners at many county restaurants. Sullivan said there is much to appreciate at this year’s festival as many county producers believe it has been a good year of grape production. “The 2012 harvest is finished, we can all agree 2012 has been a tremendous year — one of the hottest and driest growing years we've had in the county so far. Now that we have our fruit back in the wineries, we’re all pretty excited about it.” As king and queen, Howes and Dean indicated they’d likely hop on a tour bus and sing a few songs as they explore their industry.

RE/22 f THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 2012

THE PICTON GAZETTE

New windows and doors, a worthwhile investment

The crisp October air is a reminder to Ontarians that the dog days of summer are over and it’s time to start thinking about preparing our homes for winter. According to Ron Abraham, president of the Ontario Real Estate Association, the steps that homeowners take in the fall to prepare their homes for the cold months ahead, will not only reduce heating bills this winter but will also help boost resale value come spring. “For homeowners, making home repair decisions usually requires some number-crunching and deciding if the investment is worthwhile. Often, common upgrades like replac-

ing old windows and doors can lead to a great return on investment,” says Abraham. According to Hydro One, up to 40 per cent of home heat loss in winter is due to air leakage. The number of cracks and leaks in the average Canadian home adds up to a hole the size of a basketball! Interestingly, windows are responsible for almost 25 per cent of total heat loss. Ensure your home is at its most efficient this winter by following these simple steps: Seal up hidden leaks – One of the simplest ways to retain heat and reduce energy costs this winter is by installing

proper weather-stripping and caulking around the house. Fill the gaps – Check your windows’ trim for gaps between the frame and your house. As much as 13 per cent of your home’s heat and cooling loss may be escaping though the gaps. If possible, stuff insulation between the window and your home’s frame. If that’s not possible, caulk around the window. Replace – By replacing old windows and doors with new energy efficient options, you’ll not only see an immediate esthetic difference, but on average, a 90 per cent return. Just be sure to take the time to research

the selection available. Look for the Energy Rating (ER) – a rating that takes into account the size of the window, the performance of the glazing, the frame construction, and the spacers. Homeowners planning to sell in the spring should think about making these changes in the fall, says Abraham. “Buyers are increasingly attuned to the importance of purchasing an efficient home so talk to your Realtor about what you can do now to prepare your home for a spring sale.”

Pirates atone for loss with pair of convincing road wins Following high-scoring affair against Amherstview, Picton settles its defence to beat Port Hope, Napanee soundly Chad Ibbotson

Staff writer

The Picton Pirates lost their first game at home this season, but bounced back with big victories on the road against Port Hope and Napanee. The club lost a run and gun battle with Amherstview 7–6 on Thursday before blowing out Port Hope 5–0 on Friday and Napanee 9–2 on Tuesday. Pirates coach and general manager Ryan Woodward said overall he was happy with taking four out of six points. “The last couple of games were strong performances,” he said. “We just have to stay focused game to game.” Thursday's contest looked like it might be a low-scoring affair. Picton held the advantage in shots and opportunities through the first 20 minutes, but neither team was able to put one in the back of the net. The stalemate was broken wide open quickly to start the second stanza. Jets forward Chad McCutcheon kicked off the game's scoring potting one at 3:46 of the second, but just 12 seconds later Jack Davison evened the score for the Pirates. Newly acquired Coleman Foisy put Picton in the lead with a goal 27 seconds after that. Jesse Stone answered for Amherstview with a powerplay goal at 7:52, but Davison scored a power-play goal of his own to restore the onegoal Picton lead. Both teams continued a relentless attack, but it was Adam Alcorn and Dustin Kennedy scoring within a minute of each other to turn the game in Amherstview's favour. Foisy evened the score with less than four minutes to go in the period and Davison completed his second period hat-trick with a goal 32 seconds later to give the Pirates a one-goal lead heading into the third period. Picton fired 24 shots at the Amherstview goal while the Jets managed 18. A wild second period had Woodward looking to reel in the team. “The game just opened up a little bit; too much run and gun,” he said. “We were up ice too often. We generated lots of chances — we had 50-60 shots — but we've got to pay attention to detail in our own end.” Amherstview took control in the third, reeling off three straight goals from McCutcheon, Nic Pascoal and Liam Vanburen.

Geoff Cleminson answered for the Pirates, but with just two minutes left on the clock the team was unable to muster another comeback and suffered their first home loss of the season. “Unfortunately we continued to have some breakdowns in our end of the ice and Amherstview made the most of their chances,” he said. Woodward said the team held a meeting after Thursday's game and said everyone felt accountable for the loss. “We got everybody back on the same page, we talked about keeping the room positive and going into Port Hope ready to work,” he said. The Pirates came out Friday with fire. Davison tallied two goals in the first period to give Picton a solid start on the road. Mitchell Smith increased the lead to three at 8:36 of the

hold more of the same for the home club. Although the shots remained close in the first period it was Ryan Sizer and Kenny Murduff scoring late in the frame to give the Pirates a two-goal lead heading into the second. Sizer also opened the scoring in the second, this time just 1:57 in to increase the lead to three. Sizer completed the hat-trick finishing off a play from Smith and Davison. Davison tallied another at 16:39 — his league-leading 16th of the season and eighth in three games — to put Picton up 5–0. With five seconds remaining in the period Ryan Thistlethwaite put the Raiders on the board, but Napanee was still in a deep hole after 40 minutes. The Pirates continued the onslaught in the third with Smith lighting the lamp 1:43 into the final frame.

Sizer added his fourth of the game under three minutes later. Luke Emmons netted a power-play marker at 6:36 for the Raiders, but goals from Brad Jacklin and Cole Bolton put the icing on the cake for Picton's road victory. “We're a good skating team. We play an up tempo style of hockey, you have to be able to skate to have success and the guys are very comfortable on that big sheet of ice,” he said. “They gained a lot of momentum off that game in Port Hope.” Woodward said the line of Davison, Smith and Sizer has been on fire and have been carrying the load offensively. “It's good to see because they're committed to playing hard at both ends of the ice and are being rewarded at the offensive end,” he said. Picton plays its only game this week tonight at home hosting the retooled Campbellford Rebels at 7:30.

Dukes perform well with pieces missing Wellington moves two points back of second-place Kingston with game in hand Staff writer

After dropping a winnable game against the Pickering Panthers two weeks ago, Wellington Dukes coach and general manager Marty Abrams said his club would “have to take care of business” this past weekend to stay in the thick of the Ontario Junior Hockey League's East Division standings. Losing players to the World Jr. A Challenge and Prospects event (Mike Soucier, Hayden Lavigne, Joe McKeown and Parker Wood) and injury (Jan

Kaminsky, Cam Nicholl) made that task even more daunting. But give the locals full credit as Wellington(13-9-1, 27 points) were able to come away with four out of a possible six points and are just two back of the secondplace Kingston Voyageurs with a game in hand. In fact, the Trenton Golden Hawks (31 points) have come into view although the Northeast Conference leaders have two games in hand. But this young Wellington team continues to find its legs, develop and grow, making their skipper happy

with the weekend on the whole. “I thought we were able to take care of business this weekend,” Abrams told the Gazette Tuesday morning. “We were a little bit concerned after the game in Kingston but we bounced back to play an exceptional game in Lindsay. I thought our veterans and took control and wouldn't let us lose and that carried over to Sunday night against Stouffville.” On Sunday night, it was the rookies taking over in the third period as Wellington scored four unanswered Vehicle(s) may be shown with optional equipment.

in the final frame. Tied 2-2 after 40 minutes, Abbott Girduckis tucked home the game winner of a scramble in the crease at the 7:57 mark of the third. A shift later, it was Picton Pirate call up Geoff Cleminson driving hard to the net and roofing a rebound to make 4-2 Wellington. Craig Campbell batted home a loose puck at 13:11 to make it 5-2 Dukes and rookie blueliner Brody Morris capped off the Wellington scoring just over a minute later when his seeing eye shot went passed a screened Stouffville netminder Braydon Banitsiotis at 14:34. Up until the Wellington onslaught in the third, the Spirit were playing a good road game, staying to close to the Dukes and giving Wellington fits in their own end. But the Dukes would only be denied for so long and it was the rookies leading the charge in the final 20 minutes.. “What you saw was some of the younger players want to get involved, and that's thanks to the leadership the older guys have been bringing every night. When the older guys work hard it spreads throughout the team,” Abrams said. Wellington took the lead with four seconds left in the first when Josh Gervais beat the buzzer to stake the Dukes to a 1-0 lead. After Stouffville tied it in the second, Luc Brown untied it, ripping his first OJHL goal top corner to make it 2-1 Wellington. Stouffville got it back even late in the second of a scramble in front of Matt LaRose who won his eighth game of the campaign. On Friday, Wellington visited Lindsay for the first time this season and reeled in the Muskies 7-4 in a road effort Abrams was particularly enthused about. “To go into that Lindsay rink and get that type of result, I was really happy for our players,” he said. This contest could have been titles the “Soup Show” as Campbell had his finest effort in a Wellington uniform, firing home a hat trick and adding a pair of helpers in the process. “He's been unbelievable this year, there's not much else you can say,” Abrams said of the Strathroy native that had eight points in his last two games. Also picking up goals were Girduckis (two), Brian Bunnett and Gervais. Kyle Paat and Erick Delaurentis each had three assists for Wellington who built a 4-0 lead through the first 25 minutes and then traded goals with the Fish the remainder of the way.

JUSTIN DART,

Staff writer

The Kerr Construction Prince Edward County Peewee Kings are starting to find their groove as they took three out of a possible four points this past weekend. On Friday in Stirling, the locals got a big effort from netminder Connor Cruickshank in a 1-1 draw. After Wyatt Gilbert staked the locals to a 1-0 lead, Cruickshank was almost perfect down the stretch, keeping the Blues at bay. A late Stirling goal kept the Kings from victory but a solid road game made sure Prince Edward County escaped Hockeyville with at least one point. Hosting Port Hope on Sunday, Cruickshank wasn't to be denied the goose egg as the Kings blanked the Phantoms 2-0. For scoring, the Kings turned to the line of Hunter Van Vlack, Matthew Channell and Mathieu CansickDemers. Van Vlack and Channell both lit the lamp with Cansick-Demers picking up a pair of helpers. This weekend the squad plays in the Bobby Orr Hall of Fame Classic in Parry Sound where they will take their winning tournament record and try their hands against some big-city teams including Cambridge.

MIDGETS STRUGGLE TO EARN POINTS

Points continue to be hard to come by for the Prestige Construction Midget Kings as they managed just a tie in their past three games. That single point came back on Nov. 3 when the Kings travelled to Port Hope and came home with a 3-3 final. Seth VanVlack, Weston Ferguson and Dallas Hunter did the scoring while Brad Wells patrolled the Kings crease.Helpers went to VanVlack, Ben Wilson and Ferguson. The Kings hosted Port Hope back home in Wellington on Friday night and looked good, jumping out to 2-0 lead on goals from Hunter and Ryan Jones by early in the second frame. That’s when the wheels came off and the visitors stormed back with two or their own to earn a tie heading into the intermission. Port Hope completed the comeback with a goal in the third period to take the 3-2 win. Assists on the Kings goals were earned by Brad Reid, Jake Staley and Van Vlack while Alex Ward stopped pucks for the home squad. On Saturday, the Kings headed east for a tilt in Frontenac but could only muster a third-period goal on way to a 3-1 loss to the Flyers. Scott McQuaid did the damage on a feed from Van Vlack and Reid to get the Kings on board, but it was too little too late. Wells was in the cage for the Kings. The midgets host Port Hope in Picton on Tuesday night at 8 before heading off to a weekend tournament in Elmvale, Ontario.

Atom AE netminder Hayden Evans records shutouts in two of past three games The second-place Ainsworth Atom AE Kings continue to drive up the standings with their latest triumph, a 6-0 whitewash of the Blues in Stirling on Sunday. Netminder Hayden Evans stymied the Blues, stopping every shot sent his way to pick up his second shutout in three games. Nolan Steen had a pair of goals for the Kings including the game winner while Wyatt Fairman, Jackson Fox, Ethan Abrams and Brady Lane all had singles. Assists went to Fairman (2), Wyatt Slade, Ryan Cunningham, Cole Lavender, Case McFarland Tristan Lavender. The Kings look to climb into first place on Saturday when they host Oshawa in Picton at 3:15 p.m.

BANTAM AES TIE

The Bantam AE Prince Edward County Kings are getting closer to busting into the win column as they picked up a 1-1 tie this past weekend against Ennismore.

Return of skilled players should offer boost

DUKES, from page 26

It's unfortunate for Wellington that the club couldn't find their offence a night before as they were blanked in Kingston 2-0. LaRose was solid in the Wellington net, stopping 43 of 45 Kingston shots but the Dukes were unable to figure out seldom used Vees backup Brendan O'Neil. “It was just a lack of intensity and energy and that seemed to carry over from the Pickering game last Sunday,” Abrams surmised. “The jump wasn't there and neither was the passion that

makes our team successful.” Once again, Wellington will be tasked with playing three games this weekend as they are in Newmarket tonight, host Trenton on Friday and visit Whitby on Sunday. Wellington will welcome back the players that took part in the showcase events in Nova Scotia last weekend and Kaminsky will also likely return to the line up. “The key will be injecting those 4-5 players that were out.” Abrams said. “If we maintain our work effort and energy and we add these skilled players, we will be

tough to play against. If there's a let down, then we will be easy to play to against.” Round the 'Roc: Reports from the World Junior A Challenge indicate Soucier played well representing Team Canada East who bowed out in the bronze medal game against Switzerland. Soucier was chosen as TCE's player of the game in the final...Wood set up McKeown for the East Prospects first goal in the second game of the two game showcase. In splitting time, Lavigne gave up three goals in about 60 minutes of action.

On Sunday, the Kings traveled to Apsley to face Lakefield. Again, the Kings took the lead in the first period as Harrison scored with the assist going to Logan Fairman. The Kings kept strong pressure, deep in the offensive zone which paid off minutes later as Fairman tucked in a goal to make it 20 in favour of the visitors. In the second, Lakefield

The Bantam AEs will be looking for a win on Thursday night in Wellington as they face Lakefield again. On Saturday they play another home game in Picton against Oshawa at 6:30.

The County Farm Centre Novice Kings had a tough weekend, dropping both their games. On Saturday in Port Hope, the undefeated Port Hope Phantoms made easy work of the Kings, downing the visitors 7-0. On Sunday, the Kings battled the Stirling Blues hard and were knotted with a visitors 1-1 through 30 minutes of play. The Kings fought hard to take control in the third with Emerson Byford, Josh Cunningham and Nathan Percy all getting solid chances to take the lead. Unfortunately, a momentary lapse in the Kings end was all that Blues sniper Kieren Ellis needed to bag his second of the game. Ellis would finish his hat trick off late in the third as the Blues skated off with a 3-1 win. Aiden Reddick picked up the Kings lone goal. The Kings are home to Port Hope on Sunday at 1:30 p.m. in Wellington.

On Saturday in Picton, The Kings jumped in front of the Eagles in the first when Iain Cameron scored, assisted by Ethan Harrison. Kings netminder Max Manlow kept the Eagles at bay until they managed to to sneak one past him in the second frame. Solid defensive play and goaltending by both teams made sure the contest ended in a tie.

Speedy Dominic Guerrera was tabbed as the Kings’ hardest working player of the game. On Sunday against the Peterborough minor Petes, the locals hung tough with the OMHA's Eastern Division leaders for most of the contest. After the Petes were staked to a 3-0 lead in the first, the Kings fought back with a pair in the second. On a nifty individual effort, Jarrett Osterhout blasted home the Kings first of the game while Gerrit Kempers lit the lamp for his first OMHA goal later in the period. Guerrera and Osterhout picked up assists. In the third, the Petes took control and added five goals to their total before Macdonald was set up by Kieran Young and Reese Kleinstueber to stem the tide. The Petes added another late to make it a 10-3 final. Thanks to his efforts, Kempers was named the Kings hardest working player of the game. The Kings play their next home game in Wellington on Sunday against Uxbridge.

Puck Drop is at 2:45 p.m.

Nina Marguerite Dunlop

November 19th, 2003 Tears flow,and our hearts ache, nine years have passed since you walked through Heaven’s gate. God took you, why we will never know, but you’re always with us no matter where we go. Changes to our lives since you have been gone, and decisions we have had to make. With your love & knowledge, they can only be the right ones for everyones sake. Missing you every minute of every day, When I see a mother & daughter, I think of you & me. All the secrets we shared, all the things we did together. A phone call in the morning was all it took to tell me our days together were over. The pain & tiredness you felt, and we could see, it was a tough battle, but you fought it every step of the way, I only wish that I could have taken all of it away, Just to have you here with us for another day. How worried, and scared we all were. I didn’t know it was your last night, or I would have stayed. Held your hand, and stood by your side right to the moment you went to the other side. As you all can see, every day of my life is a challenge for me, for my mom is not here with me. Thank God for your never ending love.. That’s how it will always be. Mom, we miss you terrible, love you tremendously, and you’re remembered every day. Lisa & Landen Blackburn. xoxo

MccOnneLL, In loving memory of Jim, who passed away November 18, 2010. It only takes a little space To write how much we miss you But it will take the rest of our lives To forget the day we lost you.

County decides to push forward with proposed nine-station fire plan Amid concern about building on prime agricultural land, council seeks project manager to develop site options Chad Ibbotson

Staff writer

While there was much discussion about the cost and location of new fire buildings, council voted to

approve a nine-station fire service model in principle and will now issue a request for proposals for a project manager. The motion â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which passed in a recorded vote of

12â&#x20AC;&#x201C;4 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; means the County will issue an RFP for a project manager within the next couple of weeks. The project manager will determine costs for and oversee the design development and

construction of a four-bay fire station that would be located on County-owned land at the intersection of County Rd. 29 and Loyalist Parkway in Consecon. That project manager will also assist in the identification of a plot of land big enough to locate a 12-bay fire station and possibly a land ambulance base within the vicinity of the traffic circle in Picton. The project manager will also oversee the design development and construction of the second building. Once the full costs are determined council will decide whether to pursue the project. After two years of work the master fire plan working committee presented its findings and recommendations to councillors at a special committee-of-the-whole meeting on Oct. 25, which the committee approved. The recommendations were for a nine-station plan â&#x20AC;&#x201D; although a 10-station plan had also been discussed. Tuesday's vote does not bind the municipality to ulti-

mately go with the nine-station plan, nor does it make any final decisions on hall closures or the placement of new halls, but those concerns were evident on Tuesday. Most councillors agreed that any new hall shouldn't be located on prime agricultural land. Councillor Heather Campbell introduced an amendment which removed the words â&#x20AC;&#x153;a 400-metre radiusâ&#x20AC;? of the traffic circle in favour of â&#x20AC;&#x153;in the vicinityâ&#x20AC;? so as to try to give the project manager more options. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have one opportunity to get it right,â&#x20AC;? Campbell said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not limiting the area to 400 metres is less restrictive and provides flexibility for the project management team to identify land of adequate size.â&#x20AC;? Speaking on behalf of the Prince Edward Federation of Agriculture was John Thompson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The proposed new (12bay) hall would be located on prime agricultural land, some of the best in the coun-

ty and all of Canada,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;On the subject of removal of land from prime agricultural areas, the provincial policy statement requires that there are no reasonable alternative locations to avoid prime agricultural areas.â&#x20AC;? He said while the proposal on the table Tuesday calls for the construction of a new hall near the traffic circle in Picton, the municipality already owns ample land at the location of the Mallory station. In addition, he said the 10-station proposal involves lower land acquisition costs and has halls more geographically dispersed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The 10-station plan is a very reasonable alternative,â&#x20AC;? he said. The nine-station plan calls for the closure of the Picton Station, the Mallory station near Bloomfield, the base on Station Road in Hillier, a station on Prince Edward Heights and a two-bay station in Consecon in favour of the four-bay fire station. The project manager will also help to identify a parcel of land large enough to locate a 12-bay fire station and possible future location of a land ambulance base within the vicinity of the traffic circle. Private landowners would be consulted about the purchase of such a parcel. The estimated cost of the proposal is just under $4.8 million, but could have an impact of under $3 million after the sale of surplus buildings and land. After estimated savings are factored in, the project is estimated to increase the average property tax bill by .36 per cent or $7.35 on the average tax bill of $2,042, although the cost to acquire land for the 12-bay station is not yet known. During discussion it appeared council is still divided on whether the nine-station or 10-station model is the way to go. Others suggested the municipality should be looking at the cost of both options simultaneously. Councillor Janice Maynard was among them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My concern is that if the cost of land in (the vicinity of the traffic circle) is exorbitant, maybe it would be more expedient time wise while we're looking at is to have a look at the cost of property acquisition under the 10-station proposal,â&#x20AC;? she said. Mayor Peter Mertens said the master fire plan working committee discussed both proposals at length and decided the nine-station plan was the best way to go. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The consultant is going to look and help look at these and evaluate properties and that report has to come back. We're not giving him any approval,â&#x20AC;? he said. Mertens said the stations, locations, properties and costs will all be looked at in depth. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That's got to come back here and this council will ultimately decide whether or not it's acceptable or not,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If that's not acceptable we may have to look at an alternative, but we look at an alternative with the parameters that the committee had in the first place.â&#x20AC;?

County resident remembers difficult life growing up in occupied Holland Yacht clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vicecommodore has much to remember AdAm BrAmBurger Staff writer

When Prince Edward Yacht Club vice-commodore Gerry den Hartog placed the club's wreath at the Picton cenotaph Sunday, he did so with a true appreciation of Canada's efforts in the Second World War. During the war, den Hartog's family lived near The Hague in Holland. He was five years old and had already felt the sting war can have on innocent civilians who happen to live in the line of fire. "I don't remember a lot about the war itself. I remember the day we got bombed, the bombs falling and the destruction," he said of a raid in 1945, not long before war ended that cost him an arm. The bombing also ripped the family home apart, took his brother's leg, and left his father disfigured. It had actually been the English attempting to take out targets of military interest, but their coordinates were off and a residential neighbourhood was hit. den Hartog spent some time in the hospital, but he remembers distinctly the shouting and celebration of Freedom Day when Nazis surrendered. Planes flew overhead to drop food relief for the residents and den Hartog remembers being frightened about what might be falling after the bombing. That was the height of disaster in what had been five years of uneasy living for den Hartog's parents and their five children. Since 1940, his father, a market gardener would go into hiding daily so the Germans wouldn't arrest him and take him back to Germany as a forced labourer in its factories. "My father would go into hiding. He'd walk out the door to go to work, sneak into back doors and hide in the attic, it was very important to hide him," den Hartog said. His mother also faced the hardship of always having to show her identification card when in public within her own community and she often had to make trips out into the country to find food for her family during the

Working together Prince Edward Yacht Club vice-commodore Gerry den Hartog, centre, presented the

clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wreath with the help of retired OPP officers Bill Stewart, left, and Ken MacLean. Den Hartog grew up in Holland during the Nazi occupation and actually lost an arm during an Allied bombing raid. (Adam Bramburger/Gazette staff)

occupation. It was a horrible way to live and den Hartog is quick to point out his family was not alone. "We were not unique," he said. "So many families went through the exact same thing." While the British and Americans were constantly pushing on toward Germany, many people in Holland were trying to do what they could on the ground to subvert the occupying forces. He recalled his father was in a group called the Dutch Reserve Army, but they were sorely outmatched. "They had tanks and airplanes from Germany. The Dutch Reserves were poorly equipped with bicycles and rifles without ammunition," he recalled. Meanwhile, however, while that seemed to be a safer battle ground from commanders not on the ground, Canadian soldiers moved throughout Holland doing the dirty work, fighting the face-to-face battles that would turn the tide toward Holland's liberation and ultimately that victory throughout Europe. "Have you noticed how much the Dutch, even to this day, love Canadians?" den Hartog said. "The Canadian contingent basically liberated Holland. While the Americans and English rushed onto Germany, the Canadians fought a brutal war on our behalf." Den Hartog's parents never forgot the horrible conditions they lived in during the war. While they never

talked much to their children about those grim years, they did talk often about emigrating from the continent and beginning again. He said they discussed places like South Africa and Australia, but they remembered the Canadians and always spoke fondly of the opportunities ahead for their children. "My parents talked about education for us, the kind of opportunities and freedoms they didn't see then," he said, adding he and his brothers and sisters did read books about native Canadians and picture a glorious prairie

land filled with buffalo like they saw in their picture books. In 1951, the family sailed to Canada. They arrived in the port of Halifax and continued by rail toward Aylmer, Ontario, where they settled with den Hartog's parents finding work on a commercial farm. Several people on that ship also settled in the Prince Edward County region and a current yacht club member, Tony den Boer, was actually on the same voyage across the Atlantic. As he showed his appreci-

ation for the Canadian vets who fought to liberate Holland as part of the wreath laying ceremony, den Hartog said part of his thoughts at that time would also turn to the efforts of his father as he also worked in difficult situations to help bring down the Nazi efforts. "As you get older, you get to appreciate more and more what happened and what our parents did to raise us and put us five kids through university," he said. "I do think about my father (on Remembrance Day), he fought a hopeless situation

for us." Joining den Hartog for the presentation were retired RCMP officers Ken MacLean and Bill Stewart. MacLean said he also has some vivid memories about the Canadian operations in Holland that bring back memories each Remembrance Day for him. "I grew up down east and my dad and uncle were veterans. I heard a lot of stories then about how wonderful (liberating) Holland was," he said. MacLean indicated he has gone across to Holland himself to see reenactments of the liberation and said he's moved by the way the Dutch people come out in reverence for their Canadian heroes. "Their respect for Canada and Canadians was stronger than it is even in Canada," he said. "Thousands turn out to mourn the unknown soldiers. It really sends chills down your spine." For those interested in learning more about the occupation of Holland and den Hartog's family in particular, his nieces Kristen den Hartog and Tracy Kasaboski wrote a book called The Occupied Garden, which details the family's experiences. "it was nice to see my nieces write that book and bring out the history," said den Hartog. "They did a marvellous job in digging up the facts."

those concerns remain, but Hall said that will not be the case. Hall said centralized financial processing is something the MS Society has been working on for the past five years. He said the process began with looking at functions that could be done out of the national office when staff leave the organization rather than rehiring locally. He said the practice has saved the organization more than $250,000 since it was implemented. He said it would not affect a local chapter's ability to make decisions on funding. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What we do is we process the bills, we make the payments â&#x20AC;&#x201D; that's it,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The budget is still the chapter's budget. The decision on what to spend is still the chapter's decision.â&#x20AC;? Hall said funds wouldn't move into a â&#x20AC;&#x153;big potâ&#x20AC;? and chapters would still make decisions on what to spend. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everything stays in the chapter,â&#x20AC;? he said. He said a big reason for moving to the practice is to eliminate duplication of administrative services within the organization. He said the organization also has to have the documents on hand for the Canada Revenue Agency to file financial statements. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We do need to put the information into the accounting system so we can produce the chapter's financial statements, the provincial financial statements and the MS Canada financial statements,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have an annual requirement to submit those financial statements to keep our charitable status. What was happening was the cheques were being produced locally and the same activity was taking place at the division levels to create the financial statements.â&#x20AC;? He said the centralization could provide more time to fundraise locally. He said centralized financial processing would also allow the organization to distribute funds electronically rather than by cheque, which would further cut costs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For a person with MS who has mobility issues, not having to make a trip to the bank is a benefit,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;â&#x20AC;ŚThe cost of an electronic payment is about 10 per cent the cost of a cheque.â&#x20AC;? Hall said the regional hubs are will be shaped by a committee made up primarily of MS volunteers and said it hasn't been determined how many chapters there will ultimately be. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The recommendations from the renewal task force have been approved by the board, but that's all that's been done. There have been no decisions in terms of

how the organization would move to a smaller number of chapters,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It may be that it's 80 instead of 40. It may be that it's 80 instead of 60. It may be that two years from now we have the same number of chapters we do today.â&#x20AC;? He said that scenario would be unlikely because some chapters have already merged and others are discussing it. Using an example of two recently merged chapters in British Columbia, Hall said the two chapters will have their activities tracked separately so that members of each community know what has been raised and spent locally. He said the difference is there will be one board that will oversee all the activity in one area. When asked by a volunteer what would happen if the chapter decided it didn't want to merge, Hall responded â&#x20AC;&#x153;you will stay the way you are.â&#x20AC;? Hall said chapters would retain their own budgets and there would not be a regionally dictated budget. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Personally, I wouldn't support it,â&#x20AC;? he said of large regional budgets. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I don't agree that we should have budgets for a big territory. I believe that we need to have the activity within particular communities measured and to know what is raised within communities and to ensure money is spent within communities.â&#x20AC;? However, Benbow and Ellsworth remain unconvinced. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We're getting sold a bill of goods,â&#x20AC;? Ellsworth said. Ellsworth said she believes eventually there will be one budget for the region and the region will dictate where the money goes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are going to be gobbled by whoever and that's just how it is. I see, not this year and not 2013, but I see 2014 as coming down with an area budget and not a chapter budget,â&#x20AC;? she said. Ellsworth said right now nothing will change but, as long as the chapter's finances are controlled centrally, there's no guarantee the local chapter won't be swallowed up at some point. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As long as they control the financial end of it completely I don't care what they promise us. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been lied to before,â&#x20AC;? she said. Benbow said there will be discussion among the local volunteers and within the next week a decision will be made on the chapter's future. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We may end up being just a support group,â&#x20AC;? she said.

Merrill Inn tops at Taste festival AdAmBrAmBurger

Staff writer

The ballots have been counted and the more than 2,000 people attending Taste: Community Grown this year picked a people’s choice award winner. The Merrill Inn grabbed the top spot, previously held by Jamie Kennedy for several years, while visitors placed Buddha Dog second and the Waring House’s Amelia’s Garden third. The Merrill Inn also swept to the top of the favourite savoury dish category, the best dressed booth category, and the best food presentation category. Chef Michael Sullivan earned the nod as he served pickerel fritters with Laundry Farm corn, wild rice, and a sweet and salty mustard sauce. In the savoury category, Buddha Dog and Amelia’s Garden again were the runners up, while in the bestdressed booth competition Amelia’s Garden placed second and the Pizza Via and Tipsy Dog combo managed third place. Amelia’s Garden also placed second in the best food presentation category, while Clara’s found its way into the third spot in that category. Karlo Estates managed to capture top billing in the favourite white wine category, edging Sandbanks Estates and Huff Estates. Among red wines, Norman Hardie took top billing, while Sandbanks earned another second-place showing and Karlo Estates took third place. Finally among cider and beer drinkers at the festival, the County Cider Company polled higher than the Barley Day Brewing Company. Some of the biggest winners of the day were local charitable organizations. The Prince Edward County 4-H Club received $336.38 in donations from unused sample tickets, while the Edith Fox Life and Loss Centre was able to bring in $1,680 from a pie auction and the Canadian Tire Jumpstart fund brought home $1,455 from the auction of three barbecues used in the County Chopped competition. That money that would be matched by the company to help county youth take part in organized activities. Visitor Lisa O’Neil, of Ottawa, also won big as she was selected the recipient of a trip for two anywhere along the Windsor-Quebec corridor sponsored by Via Rail Canada.

Cherry Valley film makers hope to tell interesting rural stories

MINUTES, from page 3

A recent poll released by Historica-Dominion also suggests that a majority of Canadians would rather see young film makers tell the stories, rather than established talent. That should bode well for the likes of Girard and Noth, who said there is already talk some of the next Heritage Minutes might feature Sir John A. Macdonald, lending a natural tie-in to this area. In the meantime, Noth said they are hard at work to turn their barn into a production studio with a number of editing suites present inside it.

People’s choice winners unveiled

They are hopeful they can attract other like-minded professionals and students to work with them in a similar fashion to the work David and Stacey Hatch have done with WhistleStop Productions and Headland New Media Development. “We would like to work withe the schools and develop more of a workshop there,” he said. “We can learn from them and they can learn from us.’ Girard said the Heritage Minutes are actually among the more commercial work they’ve done as her previous work has found audiences at events like the Toronto Interna-

tional Film Festival and the Hot Docs documentary festival. She said while both she and Noth worked independently in the past, they found they were collaborating often on each other’s work and it made sense for them to combine their efforts to build a business. Work wise, Noth and Girard are banking on their location here in the county being close enough to major markets in Toronto and Montreal, allowing them to still be within a short drive to Canada’s creative hubs — they plan to maintain a small working space in Toronto — while enjoying the lifestyle

they have here. The one knock they both say has been a challenge to their location in Cherry Valley is the availability of reliable high-speed communications. “Sometimes that is a hurdle, but that’s the price you pay for being this close to nature,” said Girard. “Sometimes, you just welcome it as a beak. Noth said one of their strategies in the future is going to be telling the colourful true stories of rural areas that sometimes aren’t picked up by mainstream, commercial media. One example of that work is the closing days of

the Stedmans department store, which Noth said he was able to film. Otherwise, it is mainly characters that add some kind of element to living in this community that may not come across elsewhere. “'We’ve met a bunch of great people already, but any suggestions for people and, or places would be really appreciated,” he said. Those with ideas to share are welcomed to email Noth at ryanjnoth@yahoo.com. Those interested in watching the Pierpoint short and other Heritage Minutes can visit the web site www.gotaminute.ca.

Earliest construction would start is 2025 Ministry has list of hospital projects already scheduled Jason Parks

Staff writer

If all things go according to plan and there is no fast tracking by the Ministry of Health and Long-term Care, a new Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital would not start being built until at least 2025. In her deputation to Prince Edward County Council detailing the challenges facing Quinte Healthcare Corporation (QHC) in the coming years, president and chief executive officer Mary Clare Egberts offered councillors some insight into the process of the replacing the current PECMH, a facility that was built in 1954. The business case for a new hospital is currently before the South East Local Health Integration Network (SE LHIN) and once approved at that level, the plan will go before the MOHLTC's capital branch. Egberts expects some back-and-forth between

‘Depending on how fast we move up that queue, it’s probably 12-15 years...’ M. EGBErTs

QHC CeO QHC and the Ministry to take place prior to approval. “If they agree to go forward, it goes into a timeline. The Ministry of Health has its next five years of projects fully booked and accounted for,” Egberts explained “We wouldn't get into the queue until six years form now. Depending on how fast we move up that queue, it's probably 12-15 years before we have a shovel in the ground. I'm still hopeful that because we have a very interesting model and one that could be demonstrative to the whole province of how to change the delivery of healthcare, I'm hoping we can jump a few hurdles.” The current business plan before the LHIN was devel-

oped in consultation with the Prince Edward Family Health Team and Egberts said it's a very creative concept on how healthcare should be delivered in this community. “Its a joint site where we have integrated care and it's totally aligned with what the Ministry is trying to accomplish with the health care funding reform,” Egberts said. “The way the government is moving with regards to health care, I think we can have the opportunity to be the model for the rest of the province.” While the plans are underway for the future of acute healthcare delivery in Prince Edward County, councillor Terry Shortt wondered about the current facility that's now over 50 years old. “Can we maintain this hospital in the 15 years its going to take to get us to a new hospital, provided its approved?” he asked Egberts. Egberts maintained that a new hospital in Prince Edward County had very strong support from both her and QHC board of directors and, in the mean time, maintaining the current PECMH site was “quite doable.”

Detractors argue precedent had been set

ANIMALS, from page 1

“It's a great cause to send children to Pleasant Bay camp and raise food for the food bank, but I object to the use of exotic animals for this cause,” she said. Councillor Alec Lunn agreed. “In this day and age we're supposed to be more careful with the various exotic animals in the world,” he said. “(The camels) aren't necessarily safe or happy and we aren't necessarily safe when they're around.” Lunn said a precedent

has already been set with regard to the bylaw. “We've twice turned down this type of request since I've been on council and I don't see how we can claim to be consistent when talking about our policies if we proceed to allow this,” he said. Ultimately, council voted 13–3 in a recorded vote to allow the exemption. Only councillors Lunn, Brian Marisett and Bev Campbell voted against. Councillor Barry Turpin introduced the motion to bypass the municipality's

procedural bylaw — which would normally have matters brought back to committee of the whole with a staff report — and allow the exemption. Councillor Jamie Forrester said while he voted against exemptions to the bylaw previously, this case was different. “The last two issues I voted the opposite way, but I look at camels as being more of a domesticated animal. They've been a work animal for thousands of years and this is a good idea for the children and people of Prince Edward County,” he said.
