A year-long story of perseverance, passion and dedication had its final chapter written Thursday as the Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital Foundation (PECMHF) announced the completion of the $750,000 digital mammography and digital ultrasound equipment campaign. In October 2011, The PECMHF announced a “very aggressive” campaign to replace aging equipment used in breast screening services at PECMH that was nearly two decades old and still used film-based technology. Last week, in front of many supporters of the campaign, Quinte Healthcare Corporation officials and local dignitaries, the new equipment was unveiled and the campaign was declared a complete success. “Today, we are reaching our goal, it's a great day for this hospital,” PECMHF chair Larry Matheson said. With the newly installed equipment, digital mammography images are now instantly available and stored electronically, making them accessible to any physician within QHC and the Prince Edward Family Health Team.

The new ultrasound equipment is also highly beneficial to local patients. The new imaging equipment means fewer patients need to travel to Belleville General Hospital for ultrasounds and the new technology provides superior images. As well, the new technology allows for more screenings to be completed
in less time. Of the total donations received by the foundation, one third or $250,000 was raised by the Prince Edward County Memorial Auxiliary. Matheson said it was because of the generosity of the Auxiliary, those organizing special fundraisers, local service clubs and donors that the
project was able to be completed in such a short amount of time. All the gifts make a difference and we are very proud of how this project has come together,” he added. In order to start fundraising, QHC was required to approved the purchase of the equipment. QHC CEO & President
Mary Clare Egberts said it was natural to maintain these services at PECMH. “With the generosity of this community and the excellent effort of the PECMHF, we have allowed local women to get their breast screening services right here in the county, close to home,” Egberts said.

Mother of four was one of 710 rescued from wreck in 1912 AdAm BrAmBurger Staff writer
From her retirement home in Sophiasburgh, Debbie Deano can look out and see the effects of seasons and storms on Muscote Bay. The changing calm and rough waters provide a steady reminder of the unpredictable power of nature and the risks people take when they chance it. Deano, however, knows all too well about that. Just over a century ago, someone didn’t account for that power. Save a remarkable tale about a courageous woman, she wouldn’t be here today. Bridget Delia Bradley, Deano’s maternal grandmother, boarded the ocean liner Titanic April 11, 1912
from its third stop, Queenstown, Ireland. Three days later, the ship hit an iceberg in the North Atlantic Ocean. She was one of the last 12 people to reach a lifeboat and one of 710 people rescued, while 1,514 others died. “It happened because man felt they were more powerful than the elements,” Deano said. “I’m not afraid of the water, but it is always in the back of my mind. I respect the water. All of us should.” Deano thinks about the hardships Bradley went through, the tragic loss of so many others that night, and goes back to that lesson time and again, wondering why the ship’s designers and managers
P U L L - O U T
R E A L
were so arrogant about making it to America faster on the “unsinkable ship” that they tempted fate and created tragedy. It’s an important lesson, one she believes people need to hear about. “I'm not one to go into the limelight but I'm proud of my grandmother. If people want to ask questions or gain an insight, I'm more than willing to share.” Though Bradley died at age 62 in 1956 and Deano was not able to hear her story directly, she has learned a lot from her mother Joan and sister Mary Higgins, who published two books about Bradley. She also researches.

“I'm never surprised by how this community comes together around this hospital to ensure we are maintaining the services that we know are very much needed by everyone of us.” “It's tremendous how you have pulled together and made this happened, everyone in this room and several others who can't be here today are the heart of this hospital,” she added. Medical director of diagnostic imaging for QHC Dr. Matt Downey lauded the addition of the new and “extremely valuable” equipment to PECMH and said having this state-ofthe-art mammography machine will be beneficial to the screening program for local women. “With the equipment being so close to home, we are more likely to have better participation in breast screening services and that is the absolute essence of success of screening for early breast cancers,” Downey said. The campaign was pushed over the top Thursday by a pair of community-minded businessmen, a local accounting firm and a service club. Lanny and Catharine Huff ($10,000) and Ben and Marg Prinzen ($6,000) made personal donations while Wilkinson and Associates ($5,000) and the Prince Edward Women's Institute ($2,000) made finalizing contributions. “Every gift has made a difference,” PECMHF executive director Anna Marie Ferguson said. “Every donor has gotten us to where we are today.”

The Maker’s Hand organizers encouraged by high attendance Fine crafts show attracts potential buyers from near and far Jason Parks
For the eighth year, the Maker's Hand was making Prince Edward County a destination for seekers of all things unique and artistic. The annual artisan sale organized by and supporting the Prince Edward County Arts Council drew great numbers of buyers to the Prince Edward Community Centre this past weekend and whether it was a piece of art, hand crafted jewelry, nick-knack or that perfect fashion accessory, it was there to be had. Show chairwoman Ann Wood said organizers were very enthused by the great attendance through the first two days of the show. “We look to provide a good show and a good selling opportunity for the artists and the crafters and we've been pleased with the attendance so far,” Wood told the Gazette Saturday afternoon. The show remains a popular stop for both arts and crafts sellers and buyers from across the province. “We've rejected the idea of getting bigger because bigger is not always better,” Wood said. “This show provides something for every-

one and there's a price point for every shopper.” In order to present at the Maker's Hand, artists are required to apply for one of the 40 booths and this year, there were 65 applicants that were juried to be part of the 2012 show. Among those successful for the first time was Owen Sound's Morag Budgoen. Budgoen was offering Stirling Sliver jewelry with pieces containing accents in
copper, gold and brass with some items having unique felt inserts that are interchangeable. An organizer of a similar show in her hometown, Budgoen said the Marker's Hand was a great reputation amongst her fellow crafters and she added she was delighted to be a part of it. “There is a highly educated public, high-end merchandise available and

great organizers that really care about your experience as a vendor,” Budgoen said. Budgoen attends about four shows a year in addition to the show she organizes and said the pointers she's picked up at the Maker's Hand will be very beneficial next year at her show. “It's been great picking up pointers on how to run a show and what to do right,” she said. “The Maker's Hand is a fantastic to show, the quality of work is fantastic compared to other shows that I do and I'm having a hard time staying away and not buying anything for myself!” Like Budgoen, fellow artisan Chris Montgomery was a first time presenter at the Maker's Hand. Montgomery, a Port Hope-based stained glass artist, had also heard good things about the small show that attracts buyers from all over. “I was looking for something smaller and closer to home and heard great things about the Maker's Hand and, so far, it's everything I wanted it to be,” Montgomery said. Montgomery's offerings ran the spectrum from standard stain glass pieces to 3 dimensional works of art that incorporated everyday items such as coffee cups and martini glasses. Among those visiting the show Saturday were sisters Heather and Bonnie Ford.
Heather, from Wellington, was impressed by the talent and quality on display Saturday while Bonnie, a Toronto resident,
likened the show to a smaller version of the renowned One-of-a-Kind show that takes place in Toronto later this month.

While at Prince Edward County Memorial to toast the completion of the $750,000 digital mammography and ultrasound campaign, QHC Mary Clare Egberts offered an update on the progress of a proposed new hospital that would replace the current Prince Edward County Memorial building. Egberts said the business case for a new Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital is before the Local Health Integration Network (LHIN) after the original plan underwent some Ministry of Health-directed refinements and fine tuning in the preliminary stages.. It's expected by QHC that the plans could be approved by the LHIN in the near

Whether the health care is provided in the new hospital itself, by a family practitioner or by one of the other great health care providers that provide service in the community, Egberts said the community approach is what's desired by the province. â€œThat's what's going to ensure our patients remain healthy and keeping them out of hospital as much as possible,â€? she added. After the ministry has approved and made any final adjustments to the project, it can move into the queue of capital projects that are waiting for approval to tender and move into the construction phase. According to QHC, there is a long list of hospitals in Ontario currently in need of redevelopment and a new PECMH project will start based on priority of need and availability of funds. â€œThis is a dream we are looking forward to,â€? Egberts said.

Solar projects, agricultural lands take precedent over the use of radio-controlled aircraft
Model flying club looking for land in wake of leases, new production
ing for a centralized location that won't conflict with the Belleville club which flies from a field on Victoria Road in Ameliasburgh.
The Prince Edward Radio Control Flying Club will be looking at its options later this month after a combination of factors has left the group without a permanent home. Club president Dave Holmes said the group found itself without an airfield earlier this year as the land it has occupied for the past six years on Rosseau Crossroad is about to be developed into a large solar farm. Holmes says the development could begin as early as next May. He said the group was allowed to use the land free of charge and it has been a happy home for the membership of about 10. They are allowed to keep a storage shed and safety fence on the property, which will have to be moved to another location. To the group's dismay, a suitable substitute has proved difficult to find. “We're having a dickens of a job trying to find another spot,” he said. He attributes the trouble finding a piece of property to two factors. The first is the increased use of land for solar developments. The other, he said, can be traced back to drought in the United States. “There's an awful lot of land that has been previously abandoned by agriculture that's actually being put back into place,” he said. At home, he said grain prices are going way up as production has been dealt a blow in the south. “In some areas of the U.S. midwest they've had total crop failure on their corn,” he said. “We've seen corn here higher than $400 a tonne at times. Now, when you can get a half a tonne of corn off an acre of land, its got to be somebody who's very generous who's going to say 'go ahead and use my field.'” He said the group has been turned away several times due to both solar developments and to land being put back into production. For close to 30 years the group operated at the Picton Airport but, due to insurance liability concerns, was forced to move to the Rosseau Crossroads location. Holmes said the fact that the location was used for Air Cadets glider training was also a factor. He said the group has been offered a location near Point Petre, but the location would be difficult to access. “We have one member in particular who is mobility

impaired and access for him would be virtually impossible, so we're still looking for alternates,” he said. He said the ideal location would be about two to three acres for landing and taking off with lots of open space to fly the radio-controlled aircraft. In a perfect world he said the group would like to be able to access the property from the west side and have a north-south runway so the
sun will be at their backs in the afternoon. He noted the intersection of County Rd. 1 and County Rd. 2 as an ideal location. “That would be absolutely awesome, but it ain't going to happen because everything I go see there is pretty well under cultivation,” he said. He said a location with an area big enough for a runway that borders a swamp or marsh or even open water
would be suitable. The location must also be way from residences and public roadways because of safety concerns. “We are a club belonging to the Model Aeronautics Association of Canada and they have some pretty stringent guidelines,” he said. “You don't fly over residences and you don't fly over public roads.” He said the group is look-

PRINCE EDWARD COUNTY
Looking back in the
Picton Gazette 80 years ago — 1932
■ A heavy trade of county produce was flowing from the Picton harbour toward destinations around the world. Apples and a variety of canned goods were slated for shipment to buyers in England, Ireland, Scotland, Africa, Singapore and some other foreign ports. ■ Picton’s mayor George A. Wlech indicated he would not seek re-election to the position following the end of his second term of office that year. ■ A grand jury inspecting the County’s buildings found the collegiate institute and house of refuge satisfactory, but had some concerns with other local buildings. The children's shelter was “totally unfit for the purpose,” the county buildings had a condemned and antiquated heating system, and the court house featured “unsatisfactory sanitary conditions.”
50 years ago — 1962
■ Mayor H.J. McFarland told the Gazette he would consider selling his construction company if he received a suitable offer for the asset, but none had materialized. He also said if the company had been paid the $4 million remaining in its accounts receivable column, he could retire. ■ Members of the 1st Battalion Canadian Guards were finally to move into Picton that month after having their move from West Germany delayed due to the Cuban missile crisis. In allowing the move, the Canadian government signalled its belief the crisis had ended and tensions would not flare up again in Germany. ■ Plans for an $6 million expansion at Lake Ontario Cement’s Picton plant were put on hold after the company failed to get enough debenture shareholders to a meeting to issue additional debentures.
30 years ago — 1982
■ Some 47 per cent more people were without a job compared to the same time in 1981 and that figure was expected to climb as winter set in. In Picton, that amounted to 779 people receiving employment insurance, according to immigration and employment office manager John Cameron. Across Canada, unemployment was reaching record heights throughout 1982. ■ According to officials with the Wellington Legion, the province told them the $2-million, 50-unit Wellington Legion Manor was in the 1983 budget for the Canada Housing and Mortgage Corporation, meaning the federal government was prepared to pay 90 per cent of construction costs, starting in late 1983 or early 1984. The Legion and the CMHC were studying six possible sites. ■ Ameliasburgh Township received a $5,100 planning grant from the provincial government to assist with the amendment of its zoning bylaw.
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.

Predicting our winter guests at the feeder
Predictions are always a lot of fun. Sometimes they are a bit off the mark, as they were for Hurricane Sandy last week, for which we can be thankful in the Quinte area. Not so for Toronto though, and certainly not so for parts of the eastern seaboard. However, it is always good to be prepared. Our generator was poised and ready to go, and when the lights flickered and the power went off for a few seconds, the battery backup on our computer equipment kicked in and I continued uninterrupted with the project I had been working on only moments earlier. Preparedness though can reap benefits, and the predictions that have been made, for example, on what birds to expect at our feeders this winter are certainly coming true. Friend Ron Pittaway of the Minden area annually makes predictions on our expected feeder guests, basing his forecasts on the natural food supply in areas where these species routinely live. He puts a lot of work into his annual report, consulting with specialists in the field and the observations of many birders. Migration, or movements in population of those species who make their home in our boreal forests, are dictated more by available food supply, than it is by any instinct to migrate for the sake of migrating. When food is in good supply, it makes sense to remain where you are. Gray jays in Algonquin, for example, have always
worked on this principal. They stay put, living on caches of food they have stored away all summer. To see gray jays, one must drive to Algonquin Park, something we do every winter. Mostly, it is the winter finches Pittaway likes to predict the movements of every year at this time. This family of birds, like the crossbills, siskins and redpolls, are northern residents, but they will move out, often in large numbers, as they seek out sources of food. Pittaway’s predictions about pine siskins have certainly come true. Rare is the feeder this month that does not have swarms of these irrepressibly cheerful little striped finches with the flashes of yellow. However, Pittaway is quick to remind us that siskins are nomadic and they could leave without notice and move onwards. That could be south
of the border, but given the nature of siskins, it also could be east or west, depending on where the cones of conifers, their favourite food, turn up in sufficient quantity. When siskins arrive at our feeders, they turn right to niger seed and black oil sunflower seed and that may very well be enough to keep small numbers present in our area this winter, while the major flocks move on. The presence of cones is also a determining factor in the appearance of whitewinged crossbills that depend on this food supply. Like the siskin, crossbills are also nomadic birds and wander all over Canada, and wherever cone crops are good, they will remain there to feast and, ultimately, nest, then move on in the wake of dwindling supplies. In Algonquin Park where there are always a few crossbills, these birds will be absent this winter, choosing instead to remain in the Hudson Bay Lowlands, northwestern Ontario and western Canada where spruce cone crops are still very good. A few may turn up in our area, as 20 did at Prince Edward Point last month. For redpolls which are expected at our feeders this winter, the driving force is white birch seeds. This year’s crop is fair to poor across the north. Pittaway also predicts that pine grosbeaks may arrive at our feeders this winter, or to our flowering crab trees, if we have them on the property. They will also gravitate to
It was a busy year at the Prince Edward Point Bird Observatory (PEPtBO) as the bird banding site passed its 10,000th bird of the season. The Long Point Road facility was the first individual banding station among Canada’s 25 migration monitoring facilities to reach the number in a single season. By the time the station closed for the year, the number of birds banded crept to 12,303.
In this year’s count, the station banded 114 different species over the course of the fall including ruby-throated hummingbirds, a wide variety of warblers, several hawk species, a mallard duck (a first in the fall season), 956 northern saw-whet owls, and several species at risk, such as rusty blackbirds and bobolinks. After being banded, each bird was released to continue feeding and resting
before returning on its migratory journey south. PEPtBO president Cheryl Anderson said the high numbers reflect the dedicated work of station manager and master bander David Okines, volunteer banders Justin Walker and Ron Efrat, who visited from England and Israel respectively, and the many local volunteers who keep the station going. Anderson said those

the plethora of buckthorn berries down this way. What they don’t have in the far north where this species breeds is mountain ash berries, due to the drought this past summer. That means we may also get an incursion of Bohemian waxwings. Seeds are also in low supply for evening grosbeaks and we may see a few down this way this winter, but certainly not in the numbers we once did back in the 1960s. They are spruce budworm specialists and feed the larvae to their young, and since we haven’t had a major outbreak of spruce budworm since the 1970s, the evening grosbeak population has dropped somewhat in response to their food supply. Already, a few of these sunflower seed addicts have been spotted in the Quinte area. A widespread irruption of red-breasted nuthatches is expected, and already we are seeing evidence of this. Purple finches are also expected, but blue jay numbers may be low since the individuals we normally get – usually populations from farther north, are apt to stay put in the north this winter due to a good crop of red oak acorns. Could be an interesting winter this season at bird feeders across the Quinte region. For more information on today’s topic, please e-mail email@example.com or phone 613-476-5072.

Bird observatory sets banding record with 12,303 this fall
remarkable numbers only reflect a small fraction of the many migratory birds that travel through the county’s south shore each year on their migration paths, stating “The southern part of the county is a crucially important stopping off point for them.” The observatory will open again in April for the spring migration. -Contributed

The changing shape of remembrance within Canada
THIS Sunday, people from across Canada will gather in churches, in Legion halls, and at cenotaphs to remember those who gave the ultimate sacrifice to serve their country and its allies around the world in war times. Most will do so having some recollection of a veteran who served — and in some fortunate occasions, they will be able to share the experience with one of those individuals or think back to a time when such a person was able to visit them and tell them why that sacrifice was made and exactly how awful it was to fight in such a battle. That generation is getting older now, however, and between their declining health and the smaller number of people who have taken a keen interest in hearing their stories and preserving them, a time will come where towns and cities won’t have that local face they can relate to, the way many in the county remembered the late Woodrow Blakely, who made it his mission to teach and to let people never forget those who fought alongside him. Certainly, the recent Afghanistan conflict has given Canadians a new-found appreciation of the sacrifices that war veterans have had to go through, but in many cases, those veterans are still unable to speak about what they saw and that may not change. Despite the growing range of technology available to the media and the average person today, also, Afghanistan seems far more distant than the Europe of those Great Wars with far more information classified. There’s also less of a defined win or loss to the effort there, which can make it much more difficult to mark those sacrifices. If, as Peter Lockyer indicates, there are ways to reach the living history embodied in the veterans around us, and in the museums and historic places, like our own Camp Picton, a training ground for pilots heading off to battle, they should be explored and championed before it is too late. One would hope that through the years people in this country and others would still get together to mark the day of the armistice that ended the first World War and celebrate the gains that people have selflessly brought for freedom from all forms of tyranny to help people around the world live free from oppression. Also, it is hoped the example those they remember set will never be forgotten, and in fact, be followed by those who are willing to take a stand to ensure that others in the world, both close to home and abroad can be free from oppression and celebrate the lifestyle we Canadians have come to appreciate because men and women were able to give of their own lives for a worthy cause they believed was worth sacrificing those comforts for. If their efforts are forgotten, then it may be more likely the reason they fought, too, may be forgotten and such injustices could happen anew. Particularly this year on a Sunday, when the routine of work or school stopping doesn’t lend to remembering, may many time to ensure they never will be forgotten.

Volunteer at Archives for a chance to learn about local history
The County of Prince Edward Public Archives, as a part of The County of Prince Edward Public Library, has a mandate to collect and preserve printed material significant in any way to the history of the County. The Archives is also an invaluable resource for anyone interested in any aspect of local history and is the “go to” place for historical inquiries, including genealogy research. One of the exciting projects at the Archives over the last twelve months has been the digitization project and the implementation of the Minisis database. Staff at the Archives has been steadily digitizing thousands of documents, most recently focusing on photographs from the Prince Edward Historical Society collection. This PEHS collection is used extensively, so digitization is was an important step in not only preserving the material, but making the collection accessible online. The collection includes documents, newspaper clipping and photographs. “When we digitize a record,” explains Archives manager Krista Richardson, “we scan a copy at very high resolution for preservation purposes and another at a lower resolution (so that it can more quickly online) which is then watermarked and made available for public viewing.” The purpose of this large-scale project is to make the many records in the Archives collection as possible available in to the public on the Internet free of charge on the Minisis database. While a detailed and time consuming task, it is essential for both preservation and public outreach. “Presently we are in the process of scanning a massive collection from the Vic Lord collection,” says Richardson. Vic Lord was a Picton photographer and the entire collection spans the years 1910 to 1970. “We are scanning over 3,500 newspaper clippings from 1940 to the 1970s and are indexing them in the process using key words such as people’s names, places and events so they
InsIde tHe lIbrary CHRISTINE RENAUD
will be searchable by those criteria,” explains Richardson. The County of Prince Edward Public Archives has scanned over 7420 records this year, in addition to attending to patron requests and other projects. To continue this important work, the Archives is looking for volunteers to aid in the indexing process. Unlike many volunteering opportunities, this one can be done from the comfort of one’s home as long as there is access to a computer and a spreadsheet program. “It is simple to do, and you would be surprised at what interesting facts you come across as you read the material!” emphasizes Richardson. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Krista Richardson at 613-399-2023 or by e-mail at: email@example.com If you would like to visit the Archives, they are located adjacent to the Wellington branch of the County of Prince Edward Public Library at 261 Main Street in Wellington. Open hours are Tuesdays from 2pm to 8pm, Wednesday 10am to 4pm, Thursdays from 2pm to 6pm, and Friday and Saturday from 10am to 4pm. For specific help with research, an appointment is advisable. Searching the Archive records currently on the Minisis database can be done through the library’s website at www.peclibrary and clicking on the Archives link on the right side of the page.

Community Care welcomes Meals On Wheels provider Williams Family Diner to provide homemade foods
The Prince Edward Community Care for Seniors Association is welcoming a new Meals on Wheels provider. The Williams Family Diner on Elizabeth street joins Hallowell House and H.J. Macfarland home as providers to the popular Meals on Wheels program that serves an average of 17 meals per day to Prince Edward County residents. Volunteers have been delivering hot meals to seniors locally since 1980 and Community Care Executive Director Debbie MacDonald Moynes said she was happy to welcome Lisa and Colin Williams as meal providers. “They are really family and community oriented and Lisa didn't hesitate for one second when I inquired about their availability to be part of the program,” MacDonald Moynes said. The Williams Family Diner also participates in the Queen Elizabeth school hot lunch program. For the first meals produced by the Williams diner which shipped out late last week, partakers in the program dined on homemade meatloaf, mashed potatoes and peas, turkey soup and jello.

“Homemade food is their speciality,” MacDonald Moynes said. “We're sure the seniors that receive these meals will find them tasty as well as nutritious.” Just under 200 volunteers work throughout the year to deliver the meals and MacDonald Moynes
added the program is well under capacity. “Certainly, if there are seniors in need of this program, they can contact us, we have lots of capacity,” she added. Community Care has available both hot and frozen meals that are low in
sodium. Special diets can be accommodated and requests for meals are received from seniors, their family, and caregivers, physicians and others.
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
-Jason Parks, Staff
It is time for effective, responsible noise bylaw
In your Nov. 1 issue at page 35 you staff writer reports: “Councillor suggests weekend changes to noise bylaw.” Councillor Kevin Gale was quoted, saying "There are some people who don't want be woken up at 7 O'clock in the morning after having worked all week" This report should be seen as a call from sleep -deprived
persons for medical help, because every reasonable mind knows nowadays that interrupted sleep and lack of sleep is causing stress and stress can cause bodily harm, which even can lead to serious illnesses including cancer. Also to consider emotional stress to endure and deal with such situations. People who call their councillor or their municipality for help do not do it
as expressed in your report "There are some people who don't be woken up at 7 O'clock...” but in fact they call for help like a patient in pain calling their doctor, but therefor their councillor or municipality! If their doctor would say: " No, I do not like to open a big can of worms …. fear of infections, cancer, spreading …. he would be negligent. The same should
be applied for not getting proper help from councillor or municipality! Isn't it time for an effective and responsible noise bylaw instead of promoting the continuation of inhuman and health-damaging noise for the residents of Prince Edward County?
I, too, am disappointed by the lack of a response by the County’s roads department (see John Blake’s letter in The Gazette, Oct. 11, 2012). On Sept. 13 and 17, I phoned the County roads department to report that three large bags of garbage had been left in the ditches of Upper Doxsee Road and that animals had already partially gotten into them. I detailed exactly where the bags of garbage could be found. It
has been almost two months and still no response from the County’s roads department, despite the Sophiasburgh roads garage being less than two miles away. Upper Doxsee Road is popular with dog walkers, runners, and strollers. They shouldn’t have had to endure the sight and smell of rotting garbage strewn all over the place for this length of time. As well, any evidence of whom the offend-
ing culprits were has for all intents and purposes been destroyed — not that it would have mattered. I would bet it has been years since our local OPP has laid a littering charge. Now, with the heavy rains of this past week, much of the garbage has been washed away, further polluting our streams and the countryside. Pretty soon, snow will fall, covering up what garbage remains and
the County roads department will have achieved its goal of never having to get out of their trucks. Oh, how much simpler it would have been to have sent a crew over the next day to clean up the mess. Municipal restructuring leading to greater accountability and efficiency — gimme a break!

Recently there were bins located in Picton Home Hardware, Evans Lumber in Picton, Canadian Tire in Picton and Wellington Home Hardware. They were to collect new and gently used tools for carpentry, welding, electrical installations, masonry and plumbing for a newly established vocational training
centre in Atorkor, Ghana. The tool drive is now over, but i wanted to thank everyone who donated a tool, and especially the Hardware store owners who promoted the drive and collected the tools! We have a wonderful assortment of fine tools. People were most generous, we even received entire tool boxes of well
loved beautifully kept tools. Soon these tools will be shipped from the small community of Prince Edward County, Canada to the small coastal community of Atorkor, Ghana. The students, all untrained and unemployed youths living here, will now be able to start their skills training and head towards a
viable future, everyone who was involved with the tool drive has made a difference to their lives! They thank you and so do I. Peta Hall Director Atorkor Vocational Training Centre Atorkor, Ghana

The release says Lindsay will take on the role in midNovember, working out of the Wellington and District Community Centre. “She will benefit from a transition period in which she will work collaboratively with Andrew Morton, the County’s manager of facilities,” the release says.

Wine writer takes his tour from county vineyards to renowned French region
I've written 21 articles on wineries in the county and decided to take a break over the winter and resume writing them in the spring when the buds on the vines start to blossom but Delores and I had quite the trip last week and I wanted to share the experience. We had the chance to tour wineries in Bordeaux, France, with fellow members of the Opimian Society (Canada's largest private wine buying club with 20,000 members coast to coast). We went with 60 other people and two Masters of Wine. Kenneth Christie was the society's original Master of Wine and Jane Masters assumed the role two years ago. What made this so special is that there are only 297 Masters of Wine in the entire world and we had two of them with us on this trip! As I "sip in the county" I

Try to imagine 22 kilometres of caves and tunnels built into the side of a hill all carved out of a limestone base. Then imagine our surprise when we were told there were approximately 1.5 million bottles of wine stored in there! I felt like a kid in a candy store! We then visited the Chateau La Dauphine and were impressed that they dated back to 1749 as a winery but that only lasted until we visited Chateau Roquefort where we saw the remains of a castle (from the 13th Century) and evidence that people lived there in tunnels and caves at approximately 4000 B.C.! History was in evidence all through the week!

do not experience the same cold weather that we do and therefore do not have to protect the vines as we do here in the county in the winter. The major difference I saw was in the vines themselves. Take a walk out into a vineyard in the county and you will see that the older vines have a stalks averaging just over an inch to an inch and a half. In Bordeaux we saw vines over a hundred years old and the stalks looked like small tree trunks! It was a lot of fun travelling around Bordeaux in large air conditioned buses with 60 other like minded individuals tasting wines from centuries old wineries but we moved to the county for a simple reason. We love wine and wanted to experience the birth and growth of a wine industry and believe that living in the county will allow us to live that dream. Don't get me wrong, we're looking at travelling to more wine regions around the world for the experience but will always look forward to coming home, jumping in our little Smart Car and going "sippin in the county".

While they do take secret oaths to join the Knights of Columbus, the men of the local chapter of the Catholic fraternal organization want to bring their works for the community into the open. For several years, the Knights have sponsored country music jamborees each month to help local causes in the community. The events help rising artists show off their skills and offer attendees a fullcourse meal and entertainment for a nominal fee. Anyone is welcome and it is an open-mic format. Over the years, the group has used the events to support food banks, amateur sporting teams, local schools and students, societies fighting diseases and offering services for those in need. The Knights have also organized several activities for St. Gregory Catholic School including talent nights and free throw competitions. “This is a group that has done a lot of work, but nobody really knows who the Knights are,” said deputy grand knight Gerry Mayer. At present, the Knights of Columbus council 10308 has a healthy 33 members, though it is looking for some new members who can take an active role in the organization.
This year, in addition to the jamborees, the Knights have decided to stage a major fundraising event with the goal of helping children at Christmas time as well as helping to familiarize the community with the work they do. On Nov. 30 from 7-9 p.m. at the St. Gregory school gymnasium, the Knights will host a charity raffle. There is a $2 entry fee and visitors can buy 25 tickets plus a bonus door prize ticket for $20. Like a penny sale or a loonie auction, visitors can put their tickets into draws for any of the prizes they wis to win for raffle draws. Knights are canvassing their own membership and several local businesses for support and among the items they’ve secured are a flat-screen television, a $50 gas card, wine, oil paintings, a digital photo frame and much more. The funds raised will go to the Adopt-A-Child snowsuit fund administered through the OPP and the Children’s Aid Society’s Christmas Angel campaign. “We were going to donate from the jamborees help the children already, but we thought we could raise more money by doing this as well,” said financial secretary Dan Rolfe. Those seeking more information about the raffle event are encouraged to call 613476-7703.

If you’re thinking about selling your home, you may also be wondering if this is the time to fix that leaky faucet, paint the fence or even re-model the kitchen. “When it comes to preparing for a sale, it’s important to weigh the cost of any improvements,” says Ron Abraham, president of the Ontario Real Estate Association. According to Abraham, there are two key questions to consider before undertaking any repairs or renovations to your home: Will the improvements make your home more desirable to buyers? And, will they increase the value of your home enough to justify the cost? “If you can answer ‘yes’ to both

What renovations pay off ?
questions, the improvement is probably worth pursuing,” says Abraham. When it comes to re-modelling, focus on projects that will have the greatest impact on your home’s value. “Dollars spent refreshing kitchens and bathrooms for instance, can go a very long way in improving the resale value of your home,” says Abraham. “However, depending on the state of the rest of your house, these renovations may not actually help increase your home’s value. It’s important to consult with your Realtor prior to making any major investments. Sometimes all it takes is
some general maintenance to get the most out of your home sale.” Abraham offers these cost-effective methods to ensure your home is at its most appealing come sale time: See your home through a buyer’s eyes: Create a checklist of all the “little things” that should be repaired. This includes leaky faucets, holes in window screens, lights that don’t work, etc. (For a full checklist, visit www.howrealtorshelp.ca) Get rid of clutter: Remove unused objects and furniture to optimize space. Clean everything: Making sure your home is spotless is the single most cost effective way to make

your home more attractive to buyers. Pay extra attention to the kitchen and bathrooms. Repair as much as you can: Some repairs are absolutely vital, like a leaky roof or basement and unsafe electrical problems. Get the problem fixed and repair and repaint any water damage. Depersonalize your home: Remove all objects that are too personal so that buyers can picture themselves living in the space. This includes family portraits, trophies, etc. Never underestimate the power of paint: Fresh neutral colours enhance room size and look inviting. Add some beautifying touches:
Mirrors, plants and curtains help freshen up a home. Mind the outside: The condition of your home’s exterior is just as important as the interior. Keep your grass groomed, flower beds tidy and walkways clean and free of any tripping hazards. You want the first impression of your home to be a lasting one. “Preparing your home for sale shouldn’t mean breaking the bank. Speak to your Realtor about how to best optimize your renovation and home repair dollars so that potential buyers can picture themselves living there.” More information is available at www.howrealtorshelp.ca.

ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 Aries, social interaction will put a smile on your face. This week you will find you spend a lot of time with friends simply enjoying their company. TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 Taurus, if you question too many things, you will never get anything accomplished. Ambivalence leaves you feeling paralyzed. It's time to make a move.
GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 Gemini, recent admissions by someone close to you leaves you wondering if this person has ulterior motives. Take things at face value and don't be so suspicious.
CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 Cancer, planning a birthday bash for a loved one takes on new meaning. You're ready to pull out all the stops and, if done right, this party has the makings of a night to remember. LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 Leo, regardless of what you believe, the world will keep turning if you don't have ultimate control of everything. Therefore, lighten up and share the workload.
VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 Monetary issues come to the forefront, Virgo. Without some assistance, your accounts could dip much lower than you would like. Take action immediately.

PECI seniors fall in COSSA semi
Panthers punch tickets to COSSA competition
Soccer run ends in penalty kicks
Moira knocks PECI out of Bay of Quinte contention in semifinal, but seniors keep playing
PECI's bid for a Central Ontario Senior Boys soccer three-peat died as a result of penalty kicks Monday. The Panthers, looking to make it three COSSA championships in a row, were bounced in the opening round of the tournament in Port Hope, losing to St. Mary's Catholic Secondary School after the game was drawn 1-1 and penalty kicks decided the outcome. PECI managed to go four-for-five in the free-kick session but keeper Matt Gallo, who was the Bay of Quinte Conference’s top netminder this season, couldn't guess correctly on any of the Thunder attempts and the 2012 Bay of Quinte regular season champs were left wondering what might have been. “A loss in a shoot out will always be tough to swallow, PECI coach Paul Pickard said. “Unfortunately, we were on the losing end this time but we won't let that diminish our successful season.” St. Mary's only goal came halfway through the first half when a PECI hand ball in the area afforded the Thunder a penalty kick on which they converted. PECI got even early in the second half when Brad Reid and Tyler Philip helped to set up Scott McQuaid who finished off the effort with a beautiful header to make it 1-1. Monday's season ending loss marks the end of several great PECI soccer careers including those of Reid and striker Damien Wadforth who had an outstanding season for the Panthers providing both scoring and leadership to the club. Bryce Vangrootheest, Dallas Hunter, McQuaid, Mason Powers, Corey Prince and Jared Found are also Panthers believed to have played their final match in a PECI kit. “While it was not the finish we were looking for, knowing that we ended up in first place in our league is something to celebrate,” Pickard added. “Being a COSSA champion three years in a row is a rare feat.”
One dream died for the PECI Senior Basketball Panthers Tuesday night, but another lives on as a COSSA title and an OFSAA berth at the AAA level sit available on the hard court. The Panthers went into Moira Tuesday looking for a shot to advance to the Bay of Quinte final, but the Trojans once again proved their nemesis as they appeared more collected in the second half, building up a sizeable 46-30 advantage at the end of the semifinal contest. "We started the second half with a sense of urgency and scored 12 points in the first four minutes to take our first lead 22-21," coach Rob Garden explained. "Unfortunately, it seemed like we got very nervous and started to worry about losing instead of trying to win." Instead of attacking the basket and hitting free throws like they did on their comeback run, the Panthers stopped scoring. To compensate for that, Garden indicated the girls panicked on defence and chased the Trojans out to the perimetre, allowing them easy looks at the basket. The coach indicated he was pleased with his team's road start, finding some open jump shots against a 3-2 zone defence, but they couldn't get them to fall. Defensively, however, the Panthers had a good first half and were just down by

four at the half. In the game, the Panthers saw their scoring
spread out as Alyssa VanRossum had nine points, Emily Clark eight, Court-
ney Wilson seven, and Erin O'Brien six. Karlie Fairs had the hot hand for Moira, put-
ting up 19 points, while teammate Summer McCurdy put up 11 and Celeste Lang had 10. The Trojans would go on to play St. Theresa in the Bay of Quinte final. Meanwhile, the Panthers already knew that win or lose they'd be playing basketball after the Bay of Quinte playoffs thanks to a home-court 40-23 decision over the Centre Hastings Centurions, a surprise team that crossed over from tier two to beat Quinte and qualify to compete in the quarterfinals in Picton. The Panthers controlled the boards early in their own gym, effectively using their presence under the net to build a nine-point run on their way to a 15-5 fist quarter. "You never know coming in when you haven't played a team. We got some success early," Garden said. "We knew they were big, but I'm not sure they've played anyone with as much size as we have down low. To their credit, they took some time and they nearly outrebounded us in the second half. Basketball is a game of runs." Centre Hastings would have its run in the second quarter, actually outscoring the Panthers 8-6 in that frame. Garden said after the early success, PECI passed the ball with less success than usual and got a bit sloppy sitting with the lead.

Many factor into scoring as Picton makes the most of its offensive chances against Deseronto
Well-rounded Pirates calm Storm for back-to-back victories Chad Ibbotson Staff writer
The Picton Pirates improved their record again this week with back-to-back victories over the Deseronto Storm including a blowout victory on home ice last Thursday. After taking a commanding 3–0 lead in the first period the Pirates cruised to a 10–1 final, scoring seven straight goals through the final 30 minutes of the game. The team followed the win up with a closer 5–3 victory Friday night in Deseronto. The Pirates scoring came from all areas Thursday with eight different players scoring and a hat-trick from Kenny Murduff. Pirates coach and gen-

eral manager Ryan Woodward said it was important for the team made the most of their opportunities. “I thought we capitalized on a lot of our Grade A chances (Thursday) and that took some wind out of Deseronto,” he said. Brian Bunnett got things started, rushing in around the Deseronto defence and sliding the puck in behind goaltender Dan Corrigan midway through the first period. After a tentative first few minutes, the Pirates took advantage of the momentum created by the goal and began pressing. Murduff followed up with a goal of his own two minutes later when his screened shot found the net behind Corrigan.
With Picton gaining steam the Storm got into some penalty trouble. With Chris Rogalsky in the box for a pair of minors for roughing and unsportsmanlike conduct, Jack Davison tipped a Jacob Panetta point shot to increase the lead to three. Deseronto took the ice in the second period determined to narrow the gap. Jared Boomhower was able to give the team some life when he scored a shorthanded marker 1:19 into the frame, but couldn't gain any traction. With just under six minutes remaining in the period Ryan Sizer restored the three-goal lead.

The back-and-forth affair would continue in the second period. With Deseronto's Alex McConnell in the box for hooking Sizer finished off a pass from Smith to increase the lead to two. But late in the period Deseronto again came back to tie it with Boomhower and Corey Prince scoring within 37 seconds. “We allowed them to tie the game in the final min-
utes of the second period and needed a big effort in the third to secure the two points,” said Woodward. The Pirates clamped down in the third and threw everything they had on goal. The effort paid off just under six minutes into the final frame when Smith stripped the Storm defenceman of the puck and scored on the ensuing breakaway. County Kings call-up Seth VanVlack added an-

Devin McCann followed up with a goal less than a minute later and Murduff scored his second goal of the game at 17:06. After allowing three goals in under three minutes Corrigan was replaced in goal by Cody Dafoe, but the story would remain much the same in the third. Under six minutes in Murduff completed the hattrick with a power-play goal. Evan Greer, Kyle Dekeyser and Mitchell Smith would also score in the final 20 minutes. Woodward said it was important for the team to leave the win at the rink and not lose focus for Friday's contest. “I had a bad feeling we would come out flat and not play to our potential. The players were warned that the Storm would be determined to have a better effort on home ice,” Woodward said. Smaller rinks have given the Pirates a bit of trouble this season and Deseronto played more effectively on home ice. “We weren’t sharp and we were too complacent at both ends of the rink (Friday). That being said, give Deseronto credit for the way they played,” said Woodward. It was Evan Greer opening the scoring for the Pirates 3:33 into the opening frame. Brett Maracle was quick to even things up scoring 21 seconds later, however, Smith got Picton the lead again just over two minutes later.

other just over a minute later when he outworked a Storm defender in front of the net to secure the 5–3 victory. The club announced this week it had acquired Levi George from the Campbellford Rebels. Going to Campbellford is Tim Pandachuck. “Levi is a natural goal scorer, and he plays a hardnosed intense style of hockey,” Woodward said. “He is excited to join our group of players and I expect him to flourish in the opportunity and role he will be given here in Picton.” In 36 games last season George had 31 goals and 19 assists. The Pirates have three games this week. The club hosts Amherstview tonight at 7:30 before hitting the road to face Port Hope tomorrow night at 8 and Napanee Tuesday at 7:30.

HOOPS, from page 24
During the second half, they made some adjustments given to counter a defence the Centurions employed to try to limit Wilson's impact offensively. That allowed the Panthers to get some different looks and score from other places. Clark had six points in the third quarter, while Maggie Dorenberg found the hoop for as many in the fourth. "It's girls like that we need to score 7-10 points a game and they both did good jobs," Garden said. Wilson finished with 12, including eight in the first half and VanRossum had eight, including going fourfor-four from the free throw line in the second half. With Moira and St.
Theresa playing AA at COSSA, the Panthers automatically grab the top spot among larger AAA schools. Garden said some might believe the field is not as deep at that level in the regional competition, but the girls will still have to play good basketball in order to have a chance at COSSA gold and a trip to Belle River, near Windsor, for OFSAA. "Win the first game and we are in a COSSA final," said Garden. "I've been there twice in the past three years — once with the girls, once with the boys — and I told the girls the third time has to be the charm." The COSSA tournament takes place next Thursday in the Kawartha region.

Lecture Monday focuses on sinking of Titanic
1812, in February, filmmaker and author Nelofer Pazira will give an Afghan perspective on the war efforts in Afghanistan, in March, Ryerson professor Patrice Dutil will speak about explorer Samuel de Champlain in the Quinte area, and in March, members of the Gettysburg Foundation will speak on the marketing of history.
TITANIC, from page 1
â€œI do it because I have great respect for my grandmother and the hardships she endured,â€? she said. â€œI just find she was a remarkable woman.â€? As Deano describes it, the story starts back in County Cork, Ireland where Bradley was born in 1890, the fifth of nine children in a struggling family. Mired in the potato famine by 1912, her father told her there was no future for her in Ireland. A brother and sister who had already landed in New York sent money back to Bradley for her to board Titanic in the third-class steerage section. Bradley boarded the boat alongside a school friend Daniel Buckley, who also was rescued safely. In recollections to her own children, Bradley described some of the horror she saw during the wreck. She discussed a â€œsudden vibrating jarâ€? when the liner hit the iceberg around midnight, â€œwatching portholes disappear,â€? and â€œhearing boilers exploding and furniture crashing away.â€? Despite being locked in her section of the ship, Bradley made her way to the upper decks and eventually onto a lifeboat. She was wearing just a nightgown and had a life jacket to keep warm when she boarded the collapsible C boat, the same lifeboat the White Star Line president Joseph Bruce Ismay infamously boarded instead of going down with the ship. â€œHe sure wasnâ€™t women or children,â€? said Deano. It was after 4 a.m. when Carpathia came near and Bradley described having to grab a rope swing with hands so cold, she nearly couldnâ€™t grip it. She also described the near silence on board that ship at first, changing into hysterical crying as reality set in. Eventually, Bradley made it to New York, was taken to hospital and reunited with her brother and sister. She settled in Glenâ€™s Falls, New York, working for a wealthy family that had a summer home on Howe Island in the Thousand Islands, near Gananoque. It was there she met her eventual husband Bernard LaSha, a mail carrier to the island who also maintained grounds there. Somewhat ironically, the couple started one of the first Thousand Island cruise lines and they also had four children together following their marriage in 1920. LaSha died of tuberculosis during the Great Depression of the 1930s, leaving Bradley to take care of their children, their home, and their business alone. Deano has done her part to add to the story of her courageous grandmother, travelling to Ireland last year to track down her baptism certificate to prove her age, and keeping in touch with cousins there. She also has plans for a trip to Belfast next year to the Titanic museum. There, she plans to correct an error many historians have made, believing Bradley came from England, rather than County Cork, Ireland. The retired civil servant also tries her best to ensure that people realize the true horror of the event, which goes beyond the portrayal of the Titanic on the silver screen in the James Cameron

blockbuster, which focused on a love story. Earlier films, she said, like the 1958 A Night To Remember and the 1979 S.O.S Titanic, which actually cast actress Katherine Byrne as Bradley, were more accurate. Deano also said she doesnâ€™t agree with people using the Titanic as a vehicle for making money. â€œI felt they should have left well enough alone. Over 1,500 people died. Money should not be made off of that event.â€? Now, Deano said she passes the anniversary of the sinking of Titanic each April with a post on Facebook to her friends reminding them that â€œno one is infallible.â€? For this yearâ€™s 100th anniversary, she left a special tribute stating that her grandmother â€œmay have been travelling third-class on the Titanic, but she was always a first-class lady to me.â€? This Monday, Deano will do take part in a question-
and-answer session as part of the opening to History Nights at the Regent, a series of historical lectures arranged by Peter Lockyer and History Lives Here Inc. The session will follow a lecture by Kingstonâ€™s Greg Curtis, who is a member of the International Titanic Historical Society. Curtisâ€™s interest in the Titanic came when he received a lump of coal recovered from the wreck for Christmas one year as a small boy. Since, heâ€™s taken a lifelong interest in the ship and the details surrounding its crash off Newfoundland 100 years ago. The lecture begins at 7 p.m. Monday. Admission is $15 for adults and $5 for students. Future monthly lectures in the series have been planned into the new year. In January, one of Canadaâ€™s leading military historians, Maj. John Grodzinski, will speak on the War of

Professor’s final life lessons come to stage PECT takes on Mitch Albom’s renowned story AdAm BrAmBurger Staff writer
Sometimes the best lessons a professor can offer don’t always fit in a syllabus and they often aren’t found within the confines of a classroom. That was the premise of Mitch Albom’s best-selling novel Tuesdays With Morrie, a tale about a student getting back into touch a favourite college professor. Albom, a Detroit sportswriter living a busy life filled with television appearances, labour strife, and deadlines wrote about how he wanted to take a bit of time out of his hectic schedule to say goodbye to mentor Morrie Schwartz, dying from Amy-

otrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). He got more than he bargained for as Schwartz — battling with his deteriorating condition all the while — decided to give his wayward pupil his final and most important lessons about what should be most important in life. Those lessons will come to life on the stage at Mt. Tabor Nov. 16-17 and 23-24 as the Prince Edward Community Theatre (PECT) takes on Jeffrey Hatcher’s adaptation of the novel. The cast features two men who have an instantly believable rapport in the roles as Belleville-based PECT veteran Michael Zaffino plays Mitch and his own grandfather David Smith, also of Belleville, fills the Morrie role.

Finding ways to prolong remembrance Lecturer talks about ways to preserve history
Fewer and fewer veterans from even the Second World War are still alive and physically able to tell their stories — that’s of those who even would share their experiences. There are also more and more Canadians who did not directly know someone impacted by those wars Canadians take time to reflect on this week. With that in mind, the Rotary Club of Picton had a different spin on its annual Remembrance Day program by placing the focus on how to keep those memories going. Historian Peter Lockyer gave a guest lecture on the subject. “How is it that we would “always remember” as Churchill advises? This is a critical question. It is because we are in the midst of a great generational transfer of responsibility for — and
And so when we see a poppy worn, Let us reflect on the burden borne, By those who gave their very all When asked to answer their country’s call That we at home in peace might live, Then wear a poppy! Remember - and give!

Tyne Cot Cemetery, Belgium May the simple, yet eloquent words immortalized in John McCrae’s famous poem, echo even more strongly in the hearts and minds of all Canadians, as we remember the sacrifice of those who have served, and continue to serve in Canada’s name.

ownership of — remembering,” he said. Lockyer, who also did not experience the wars, had memories of his grandfather, Elmer Duetta, who served in both Great Wars and a puncture in his arm from a bullet wound that he’d never forget. He saw the photo of his father in his uniform marrying his mother and he spoke of foods he’d never eat because he grew sick of them during the war. Others don’t have that, and as his generation and his parents generation grow old, Lockyer said there will be a gap in the preservation of history by volunteers also. “We are about to experience the “perfect storm” of conditions, which actually contrive against remember-
ing,” he said. Lockyer suggested there needs to be a community approach to preserving memories of events in history and finding ways to produce tools to remember while there is an opprtunity to do so. Lockyer said that it is in recording those tools — documentaries featuring people who lived through the wars, preserving their artifacts, and encouraging lectures and discussions on the past — that will keep remembrance vibrant into future generations. He said such an approach could be incredibly challenging, but if completed could make for something memorable and productive. -Staff

Legions mark Remembrance Day with weekend events
We honour those Canadians that won for us the freedom that our country now enjoys
Members and friends of the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 78 in Picton will be starting their Remembrance Day ceremonies again Saturday evening this year and continuing overnight leading up to the morning vigil. The branchâ€™s light the candles ceremony will begin at 7 p.m. and there will be a vigil continuing at the cenotaph throughout the night hours. The following morning at 9:30 a.m. the bus will leave the branch to the Picton United Church for the annual Remembrance Day service there, while at 10:45
the parade will form toward the cenotaph from the branch. The cenotaph ceremony with wreath laying will occur beginning at 11 a.m. with a parade to the branch to follow. A reception and lunch at the Legion take place with the doors open to all and McGreevy and Hardman will be providing entertainment at the branch between the hours of 1-4 p.m. â– In Wellington this year, organizers are calling on the â€˜Citizen Brigadeâ€? to march toward the memorial at the gates of the park on Main Street.
Branch 160 spokesperson Bob Stock says people only have to wear their poppies as a uniform and they can march in place of those veterans to symbolically represent those veterans who are unable to physically join the parade. â€œFor the past several years, it has been most gratifying to note how deeply moved our vets have been when they see the wide range of people who turn out in respect for those who served and those who fell in the service of Canada,â€? said Stock. â€œ â€œIn addition to individuals, there are entire families
marching including veteransâ€™ sons, daughters, children and grandchildren.â€? For the Wellington ceremony, the United Church will hold the church service at 10 a.m. with the civilian brigade forming on Main Street along with any veterans present at 10:30 a.m. There will be two minutes of silence at 11 a.m. followed by wreath laying at 11:15 a.m. A reception will follow at Branch 160 at noon. â– Services are also planned for the Consecon cenotaph to mark the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month.

Dukes win shootout over Newmarket before falling to Pickering Late goal gives Dukes first home loss in weeks Jason Parks
After winning seven of their past nine games heading into Sunday night's match up against the Pickering Panthers, it looked as though the young Wellington Dukes (118-1) had figured out this Junior A game. The club that had been plagued mistakes and indifferent play that could be chalked up to youth early on in the 2012-2013 OJHL campaign had been making a strong statement as of late, capturing 15 of a possible 18 points in the past three weeks. However, the learning process is still taking root and with it comes the growing pains experienced on Sunday. Up 3-2 after 40 minutes thanks to last minute goal by Craig Campbell, the Dukes were looking in fine shape to close out another successful weekend. Unfortunately for Dukes fans, the locals came out of the second intermission stuck in neutral. Brodie Tutton beat Dukes

starter Matt Larose just 26 seconds into the second to tie the game and former Toronto Junior Canadian Carlos Amestoy just over one minute later to put the Panthers up 4-3. Wellington would tie it thanks to Jan Kaminsky's power-play goal at 4:48 but
Aiden Wallace's man advantage marker with about three and a half minutes left were enough to hand Wellington its first home ice defeat in just over a month. Wellington Dukes coach and general manager Marty Abrams has always been one to keep his club and the
Dukes faithful from getting too high after a win and too low after a loss. That said, Sunday night's setback might stick with the hockey club for a while. “As high as we were after our performance on Friday (a 2-1 shootout win over Newmarket), we were equally
disappointed with the loss on Sunday” Abrams told the Gazette. “Unfortunately those are the types of games that can come back to haunt you. We hope we take care of businessmen this coming weekend (When Wellington plays three games in four nights) because if we don't, that loss could come back on us in February.” Abrams added the Panthers, who are lurking the North division basement, deserve full credit for getting two valuable road points. “Give them full credit for the win, they came in hungry but we felt we didn't battle and we didn't put together a complete game,” he added. Sunday's disappointment came on the heels of a 2-1 shootout win on Friday over the visiting Hurricanes. In front of a good crowd of over 600 fans, Wellington fell behind in the first 1-0 but came back to tie the game at 1-1 thanks to a nifty effort from Campbell at the 15:22 mark of the third. After a scoreless overtime, the game turned into a penalty shot contest. Each team went two-forthree in the opening round with Campbell and Erick Delaurentis scoring for Wellington. In the sixth round, rookie
Abbott Girduckis had a chance to win it for Wellington and did just that, beating Matt Wintjes clean to secure the extra point in the Dukes favour. With just two regulation goals and just three minor penalties, the game was a dandy. “Afterward Newmarket agreed it was a playoff-style game and both teams battled very hard,” Abrams said. “It was an unbelievable hockey game for November there was great fan support, which is always nice to see.” Wellington hits the road this evening, taking on the Kingston Voyageurs at the Invista Centre in the Limestone city. Tomorrow night, Wellington plays a rare Friday night road game in Lindsay and winds up their weekend slate against Stoufville at the Essroc Centre on Sunday night. Puck drop is at 7 p.m. Round the 'Roc: Sunday's game will feature a special Remembrance Day ceremony performed by the Wellington branch of the Royal Canadian Legion...With Brian Bunnett maxing his allowable 10 affiliate games, it's expected the Dukes will sign him to a Junior A card thus ending his rehab stint with Picton.
saves to keep his club in the game. For his efforts, Stock was named the Kings hardest working performer. The Novice AE Kings play a pair of home games in Picton this weekend, welcoming Oshawa on Saturday at 5 p.m. And Peterborough at 6 p.m. On Sunday. ■ The Ainsworth Funeral Home Atom AE Kings had no problem finding top gear this weekend as the locals were road warriors, winning a pair of lopsided games in Tweed and Ennismore. On Saturday, the Kings crowned the Tweed Hawks in a game that went into the books as a 20-0 win. Jackson Fox had a mittful of goals while Brody Lane (3), Cole Lavender (3), Wyatt Fairman (2), Ryan Cunningham (2), Nolan Steen (2), Tristan Lavender, Wyatt Slade, Case MacFarland, Spencer Haennel , Tristan Lavender and Ethan Abrams all found the back of the net. Noah MacDonald picked up a shutout. On Sunday, the Kings once again didn't spare the offence, taking down the Ennismore Eagles 12-1. Cole Lavender and Slade paced the offence with a hat trick each while Ford Facette-
Grondin netted a pair. Steen, Lane, Fox and Haennel all had singles. ■ The Bantam AE Kings were stymied this weekend in a home and home series with the Durham Crusaders but still managed a point. On Saturday in Whitby, Max Manlow was flawless in the Kings net, stopping all 26 Crusaders shots. Unfortunately, the locals couldn't sneak one into the Crusaders net and the contest ended in a 0-0 draw. On Sunday in Wellington, the Kings still were unable to find a way to get one past the Crusaders goalie and the locals fell 4-0. Kieran Squires, Riley Young, and Corey Algar all had multiple scoring chances but came up dry. Ethan Harrison, and Logan Fairman were strong on the fore-check for the Kings, while Aidan Wallwork and James Reynolds were strong on the back end. The Bantam AE Kings look to break a losing streak this weekend when they host Lakefield in Wellington on Friday at 8:45 p.m. They also host Ennismore on Saturday in Picton at 6:30 p.m.
Novice Kings take their first win of season with shutout effort against Gananoque JasonParks
In novice action, the County Farm Centre Kings bagged their first win of the regular season, a 1-0 win in Gananoque on Sunday afternoon. Ben Lamoore for the game winner in the first on a nice individual effort and then the Kings went work on the defensive side of the puck, keeping the Islanders at bay. Nolan Lane got his first shutout of the season thanks to some great saves and solid play by his defencemen. For his efforts, blue liner Ben Smith picked up the hard hat as the Kings hardest working performer of the game. Emerson Byford also had a standout game, staying in the way of the Islanders top snipers all game. The Kings are at home on Sunday when they look to beat the Stirling Blues in Wellington starting at 1:30 p.m. ■ The Atlantis Irrigation Juvenile Kings got their first win of the season, a hard fought 3-2 win over the Napanee Stars on Sunday evening. Mason Powers spotted
Matt Harrington who blasted home the eventual game winner with 3:28 left to go in second period. The Stars battled back to score late in the second and added another in the third but Jared Found was solid in the Kings cage, making several key saves in the late going as Napanee pressed for the equalizer. Kings coach Jay Van Rossum was happy to see the club bust into the win column. “Sunday night was a big game for us against rival Napanee,” Van Rossum said. “The boys came out with a fast-paced, physical first period and jumped ahead with an early lead. It was our first time playing with the lead and that seemed to spark the bench.” The Kings have had much success in the final period this season, so Van Rossum was confident going into the final frame. We have been a third period team so far this season, playing our best in the final 15 minutes, so heading into it with the lead I knew the boys would dig deep and find another gear,” he added. Powers added a goal in the win while Tanner Thompson also scored. Isaac

Bass added two assists. In action on Saturday, the Kings fell to the Eagles in Ennismore 4-1. Bass setup Lee Demille on the Kings lone marker of the game. ■ The Beatty Seeds Novice AE Kings gave the fans plenty of drama in their home debut on Sunday but they couldn’t quite complete a spirited comeback bid against a determined Port Hope club. Down 3-0 to start the third, the Kings Jarrett Osterhout got the home side on the board when he ripped a wrist shot past the Predators goalie to get the Kings to
within two. A couple of shifts later, Lochlan MacDonald made a nice feed to Osterhout who was standing on the doorstep and promptly put the puck home to make it 3-2 Preds with under 10 minutes to play. The Kings mounted several good rushes into the Port Hope zone, but, with the game winding down, the locals got caught going the wrong way and the Preds netted that all important fourth goal to make the final 4-2. Kings netminder Austin Stock was solid in the Kings net, making several key
Dukes’ Soucier makes Team Canada East roster; McKeown and Wood will join him in showcase
For the 11th time in the event's seven year history, a Wellington Duke is taking part in the World Junior A Hockey Challenge. Mike Soucier, a 17-yearold rookie, was selected last weekend to represent Team Canada East in the international hockey event which is being played in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia this week. Soucier has three goals and five assists for eight points in 17 games thus far and, while those numbers aren't flashy, his play in the evaluation camps leading up to the selection was. We are so happy for Mike and it speaks volumes to the recognition the Wellington Dukes program has around
Canada to have had 11 players take part and represent their country,” Dukes General Manager and Coach Marty Abrams said. Abrams attended Team Canada East tryout camp early last week and witnessed a highly motivated Soucier doing anything he could to included with the contingent heading east. “This is a great message to young kids going to tryout camps and evaluation camps. You can either play your way on to a team or play your way off a team.” Abrams said of Soucier's play during the trials. “He made the team based on the camp. He was simply outstanding. Mike played great in own end, blocked
shots did whatever was asked of him and really put his nose to grind stone to make that team.” While in Nova Scotia for the week, Soucier will be joined by teammates Hayden Lavigne, Joe McKeown and Parker Wood as those players were selected to take part in the Canadian Junior Hockey League's Prospects Showcase, a two game event taking place in Digby Saturday and Yarmouth Sunday. The event splits the top 40 Junior A prospects based on NHL and NCAA scouting evaluations. All three Dukes will represent Team East. As with Soucier's selection, the fact Wellington has stocked the East club with tal-
ent is a feather in the cap of both the team and the players themselves. Lavigne was solid between the pipes in September and the 16-year-old has excellent pro potential, according to Abrams. “His size and his mobility are his biggest assets right now,” Abrams said. A first year forward, McKeown's game continues to grow in leaps and bounds after a solid season with the Campbellford Junior C squad in 2011-2012. “It goes to show players can come from anywhere and be successful,” Abrams said. “We've watched Joe develop this fall and he's playing with great confidence right now.”
McKeown has eight points in his last 11 games. In Wood, Wellington successfully recruited the Rochester Hills, Michigan native this past season and the hard work Abrams and company invested in attracting the 18-year-old to Wellington looks to be paying off. “Parker could have gone to any number of Junior teams in Canada and the US but I told him when recruiting that good things happen to Wellington Dukes,” Abrams said. “He's a skilled guy, he's got a great knack around the net and there is lots of NCAA interest surrounding him.” In his first year of Junior
hockey, Wood's at almost a point per game pace with 18 in 20 contests.
DUKES ADD FORWARD
In other Dukes news, the club announced the acquisition of Nik Coric from the Newmarket Hurricanes for future considerations. Coric, a 1996-born forward, was drafted in the 5th round, 87th overall to the Belleville Bulls in this past April's OHL Priority Selection. In his Minor Midget season, Coric was named OMHA player of the year while skating in York-Simcoe. -Jason Parks, Staff
