The third time was the charm for Gilbert Kiptoo. In his third Prince Edward County Marathon, Kiptoo made it virtually a one man race on Sunday, cruising to a decisive win in 2:38:21 under overcast and rainy skies. After finishing second twice in prior County Marathons, it was the 30 year old's first trip to the top of the podium with the Rolf Lund trophy in hand. Taking home top prize in the 10th annual County Marathon was never too far from Kitpoo's mind while running the course, although the native Kenyan had a bigger goal in mind when the gun went off at 8 a.m. Monday morning. “This year I wanted to run the course record,” Kiptoo told the media after his race. By the half way point I was four minutes inside the course record but then the weather started.” Pouring rain and a lazy easterly wind was unre-

lenting during the second half of Kiptoo's race, causing the runner to finish well behind his early pace but still about ten minutes ahead of his nearest competitor. “The wind was a problem,” Kiptoo added. The runner was the only elite marathoner to try the course Sunday as poor forecasts might have scared away potential challengers. But Kiptoo deserves full credit for braving a lonely and dark course Sunday morning and posting a time that is about average when compared with previous Marathon winning times. On the women's side,

Karine Laverdiere of Whitby was the winner of the Gayle Ornikova trophy, completing the 26.2 mile circuit in 3:17:33 Rounding out the other winners, Oshawa's Nicholas Reay was the male winner of the half marathon with a time of 1:16:22 while Angela Batsford of Petawawa posted the top female half marathon mark at1:26:40.

female team. Overall, around 1,100 runners signed up to participate in the 10th edition of the County Marathon, but a gloomy forecast kept the numbers lower than expected. Race co-ordinator Lisa Lindsay oversaw her tenth and final County Marathon and said the tireless volunteers deserve all the credit for making the day a success. “The weather never seems to affect the runners as much as the volunteers and the committee members hearts always go out to the people who work for up to six hours on the course,” Lindsay said. “As well, the spectators that support the race and get to see a unique event like this go right by their front door. We applaud the ones that came out to cheer on our runners.” Dark shadows were not only a tangible quantity on Sunday as the spectre of the bombing of this year's Boston Marathon was on the minds of some participants. However, Lindsay trumpets the County Marathon as a safe place to run and compete.

Another wind energy battle appears to be coming to a close, at least for now. Earlier this week it was announced that the $14million lawsuit launched on 46 Prince Edward County landowners participating in the White Pines Wind Farm on behalf of more than 20 county families (Ivak vs wpd) has been withdrawn. A press release distributed by White Pines proponent wpd Canada says a very similar case involving the company's Fairview Wind Project (Wiggins v. wpd) was dismissed by the court and the plaintiffs were ordered to pay costs to wpd and participating landowners. “The claims made in the White Pines lawsuit are essentially the same as those made in the Fairview case,” wpd Canada president Ian MacRae said in the release. “As we did in the Fairview case, we were prepared to ask the court for summary judgement, and a hearing was scheduled for September.” The release says wpd and participating landowners were requesting the case be dismissed in this case as well. “Our argument at the pre-trial hearing would have been that there is no reason to take up the court’s time and incur additional costs with a trial, as there was no merit in the plaintiffs’ claims,” MacRae said. “The plaintiffs’ decision to withdraw their claims achieves the same result.” The White Pines project's Renewable Energy Approval (REA) application was submitted to the Ministry of the Environment (MOE) last September. The release says if that application is deemed complete it will be posted to the EBR registry and wpd will provide notice to residents that comments can be made to the MOE via the registry posting.

Council receives new report on issues, options, and opportunities 121-page document is expected to provide framework for draft policies that will make up County’s next official plan Staff writer

Wind turbines and protecting natural resources were a couple of the biggest topics discussed as council got its first look at an issues, options and opportunities report on Tuesday evening.

scape. Ron Palmer of The planning Partnership and Margaret Walton of Planscape presented the report on Tuesday. “In summary we've heard we have a lot of passionate people here in Prince Edward County, we've heard the county is a very special place for the residents and it includes a full array and diversity of assets and opportunities,” said Palmer. “… Notwithstanding those great assets, there are a lot of issues facing the county and, certainly, we've heard a full range of views from all sides.” Palmer said there is common desire that the county remain a special and attractive place. He said there appears to be a feeling that the county has a lot of potential to strengthen local communities and improve the economy.

The report looks at some key issues for the County moving forward and will serve as a framework for draft policies that will make up the new official plan. The report was prepared by planning firms The Planning Partnership and Plan-

Kelsey Michael Cashier

The report identifies some key planning issues such as low growth, scattered low density development outside of settlement areas, and an aging population. Walton said rural areas are an integral part of the county. “We have spent time talking to the agriculture sector specifically to ensure that we protect that resource and also develop policy that are flexible to allow them to go in the many different directions that agriculture has the ability to go in,” she said. Walton said shore land is also an important resource in the county. While the 121-page report covered a wide range of issues from infrastructure and housing, to economy and culture, the concerns expressed by citizens in attendance revolved around

industrial wind turbines and protecting natural resources. Cheryl O'Brien of the Waring's Creek Improvement Association (WCIA) said the group wants to ensure the fragile Waring's Creek watershed is protected under the plan. “With no tree-cutting bylaw and without protection either by the county or the province, the woodlands and headwaters of the creek within the new urban development designation will be fair game,” she said. “At this point the woodlands and the headwaters remain vulnerable. The WCIA is asking what steps we would take to ensure the protection of the creek, headwater, and woodlands.” County Coalition for Safe and Appropriate Green Energy chair Garth Manning said the issues, options, and opportunities report overlooks what the impact of industrial wind turbines would be on the county. Manning also expressed concern with the future demolition of the turbines, saying the Green Energy Act doesn't require developers to put forward a demolition plan. “The landowner, initially, because it's standing on his or her property will have to bear the cost of demolishing the turbine if the initial developer did not,” he said. “… The landowner of

course can't afford to do that, so it will fall on the municipality to do it. It would be a heck of a lot of money to take down one turbine, let alone nine, let alone 29.” Manning suggested demolition standards for turbines be considered for the official plan. The issues, options, and opportunities report notes the need for a framework for evaluating wind projects and development standards that address height, scale, compatibility, and setbacks. “It is recommended that the county express support for wind projects within this type of policy framework,” the report says. Palmer said this will ensure there is a tool the municipality can use to evaluate wind projects. “If you don't have a control of whether or not you're a host, you have some control of how big they are, where they're located and how the transmission is handled,” he said. “If you simply say 'we disagree and we're not going to deal with it,' you run the risk of not having a policy framework in place within which to evaluate an application that you may have no control over.” Both Walton and Palmer said consultation with all groups will continue. The first draft of the official plan is expected to be presented to municipal staff for a roundtable review in November. The second draft is expected to come to council for an open house consultation in January followed by a review by the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing. A circulation draft will come back to council for approval in February. If approved, the plan is expected to be submitted to the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing for one window review and final approval in mid-March.

Severe storm stories shared at service County’s marine past remembered at South Bay United Church

Birthdays, Anniversaries, Graduations, Retirements, Weddings

Staff writer

O hear us when we cry to thee, for those who peril on the sea. A near capacity crowd honoured the memory of fine local seaworthy stock Sunday at South Bay United Church at the annual Mariner's Memorial Service. Honoured guests from the Canadian Forces, Coast Guard and Auxiliary, Local Legions, family members and Prince Edward residents with connections to the fishing and marine industries were on hand to honour those that had served on the water. Kenneth Raymond McIntosh (county fisherman and boat builder), Donald Creasy (Great Lakes sailor), George Arthur Devonshire (Royal Canadian Navy), Margaret Elizabeth Clapp (Women's Royal Naval Service), Harry Mitchell (captain of the Glenora Ferry), Glenn VanCott (county fisherman), William Henry Harrison (certified marine engineer), Micheal Lambert Bolton (sailor and marine surveyor) and Greg Minaker (South Marysburgh firefighter) were remembered with the ringing of the HCMS Hallowell bell as their names were read from the memorial honour roll. In addition to the honour roll, the service was highlighted with a captivating presentation on the “Great storm of 1913” by David Yates. Yates was introduced by Derek Wolfe who explained that Lake Ontario was mostly spared in the great storm. In this part of the province, a few boats slipped their moorings and a few hulls were damaged. However, the weather event in mid-November, 1913 was one of the most catastrophic events in Canadian maritime history with the full brunt of two storm fronts meeting and clashing over Lake Huron. “The story of what happened on Lake Huron in mid-November 1913 truly epitomizes the danger and the true terror that people face when they serve on the water,” Wolfe said. Yates said the weather event between Nov. 7-10, 1913 on Lakes Superior, Michigan and Huron was the most violent and deadly storm ever recorded on the Great Lakes. Cyclonic winds and in-

tense snow blizzards made navigation for even the most seasoned lake crews nearly impossible. “Many experienced seamen recall gale force winds blowing in one direction, while 35-foot waves relentlessly battered vessels from the opposite direction,” Yates explained. By the dawn of Sunday, Nov. 9, 1913, the storm had already claimed 53 lives and several vessels in Lakes Superior and Michigan. As the full fury of the great storm was released, eight ships with all her hands would be claimed, 30 hulls would be badly damaged. An estimated 178 souls were lost on the “The most terrible day in Lake Huron's history.” Yates’ presentation focused on four ships-James C Carruthers, Wexford, J H Sheadle and Hydrus. After bucking hurricane winds, monstrous waves and snow on Lake Superior, ships harboured around the Soo gambled and made the fateful choice to venture on to Lake Huron. “The story of the great storm is more than a natural disaster story, it's a human story where human decisions led to fatal consequence,” Yates explained. Given the rudimentary weather forecasting abilities of the time and the fact the owners of ships often pressured the captain and crew they employed to

make as many voyages in a shipping seasons as possible, Yates said it was not surprising that some captains decided to leave the safety of port for the soon raging and icy waters. “A representative of the owner of the James C Carruthers said after the storm 'No master ever paid attention to weather reports because if they had, no one would ever leave port.',” Yates said. Besides, it looked like the worst of the storm was over. Skies were clearing and the winds had died down. But Yates said experienced seamen know that condition as “The Sucker Hole” where storm fronts collide and provide a brief window before violently exploding. Yates detailed the foundering of the Carruthers, Wexford and Hydrus while the Sheadle miraculously made it through the storm and the notes of her captain, S. A. Lyons, help paint the picture of the conditions those ships and their crews faced that fateful Sunday. Yates also spoke about the human impact to the Huron Shores area where body recovery was tasked to local volunteers and officials. “Unfortunately, the great storm was overshadowed by the Great War, making the storm all but forgotten in the minds of most,” Yates said.

Latest harvest puts South Bay Foodgrains Project past $60,000 mark Soybean crop on 11 acres yields 287 bushels for $3,535 contribution this year Staff writer

With its latest harvest of soybeans included, the South Bay Foodgrains Project has donated more than $60,000 to worldwide hunger relief. That is no small feat on 10 acres of land, however, co-chair George Emlaw

points out it is actually a much greater contribution thanks to the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA). “Everything we do is matched 4-1, so we’ve really created more than $250,000 for hunger programs,� Emlaw said. “About 92 per

cent of that gross goes right to food, thanks to the amount of volunteers we have.� The South Bay project is one of more than 300 across Canada growing commodities for the Canada Foodgrains Bank, an interdenominational organ-

ization started in 1983 as Christian response to world hunger. Specifically this year, project volunteers planted 11 acres of soybeans. They yielded 287 bushels at $12.39 a bushel — about 25 bushels an acre for a grand total of $3,535.54. Co-chair Doug Murphy said that yield was a bit lower than expected, but some external factors came into play. “Dry weather and aphids came into play and that stressed the crops. It is not as high yield as we usually get,� he said. Murphy explained the aphids search for the weakest plants to attack and farmers in neighbouring fields were likely able to put more pesticide on their crops. He indicated when they attack a plant, they stop the photosynthesis process and limit growth. Emlaw said the project did get a break with more favourable prices than in other years as there were some drought conditions

earlier this year in the midwest, where the prices are regularly set by the Chicago Board of Trade. Emlaw and Murphy indicated their job as chairs of the project is made easy by the amount of support they receive annually from local farmers. “A lot of things have to come together, but nobody ever says no,� he said.

Quaiff pushes for Green Energy Act changes Runners love Marathon’s hometown atmosphere WIND, from page 1

The release says “wpd will continue to respond to questions and concerns brought forward by the public, and provide notice to residents of project milestones.� However, resident Gord Gibbons — who was one of the plaintiffs in the lawsuit — says the Fairview case didn't precipitate the withdrawal of the suit. He called the wpd release “grossly inaccurate.� “The first property values case to be heard was in Creemore, Ont. It involved wpd and there was a court hearing and the judge ruled you couldn't bring a suit until the project has actually received its renewable energy approval,� he said. Gibbons said it's his understanding that if the REA is approved the lawsuit will relaunched. North Marysburgh councillor and Prince Edward County’s Wainfleet working group representative Robert Quaiff said he believes withdrawal is ultimately a good thing. “Typically, in my opinion, that's a good thing,� said Quaiff. “Now you don't have that neighbour against neighbour (situation); suing one another when really it's the province that should be looking at things of that nature. Quaiff said the province should be looking to make changes to the Green Energy Act so that these types of lawsuits don't happen. The announcement comes as the Canadian Wind Energy Association (CanWEA) wraps up its annual conference today. The organization is receiving criticism for not involving municipal-

ities who have declared themselves unwilling to host the installations. Quaiff said the association's move not to invite any dissenting opinion represents another case of evasion. Additionally, Quaiff said the five-turbine project in Wainfleet that sparked the creation of the working group got final approval this week. “The provincial government said they would look at municipalities and wind developers working more closely together and all of those good things, and that's not what's happening,� he said. The Wainfleet working group has been actively calling for changes to the Green Energy Act. The group released a statement early this week criticizing CanWEA for not involving municipalities in the conference. As of this week 71 municipalities have declared themselves an “unwilling host� to wind turbines. The release says Greater Napanee and West Elgin are expected to join that list at meetings this week. While the CanWEA annual conference was billed as a place to see new wind products and services and network with industry leaders, Quaiff said alternative views from unwilling hosts would have provided some valuable insight to the wind industry. “Just some discussion that we could provide to them as to how they could deescalate the concerns of municipalities and residents there within,� Quaiff said. Quaiff said that discussion should include setbacks, placement of turbines, health impacts, and noise is-


sues. “Because they're able to hide behind the province's skirt typically, they don't have to do any of that kind of thing,� Quaiff said. The release from the working group says government proposals for community benefit programs and sponsorship “do not address the core problems created when wind turbines are located too close to people. The release quotes Wainfleet mayor April Jeffs as saying “municipalities are looking for solutions to the real problems, not public relations gimmicks.� The government has indicated that an announcement regarding the guidelines for new large-scale feed-in tariff (FIT) projects is planned for the end of this month or early November. The Wainfleet working group is calling for renewed planning authority for municipalities.

RACE, from page 1

“Lots of the races will go by the wayside because the cost incurred to ensure the race is safe for all the runners and the community is very expensive,� Lindsay said.� We are very fortunate with the new regulations and rules that are coming down that there is not one thing that we have had to adjust or change in our operation. Lindsay said the Marathon has a very healthy relationship with the Prince Edward County OPP detachment and the 18 paid duty officers the marathon employs during the race is a safety feature not many marathons can boast. In addition, organizers use the Laidlaw bussing system to shuttle half marathoners and relay team members where they need to be secure. Jim and Ruby Locke, of Brockville, have made the trip

to the county every year the race has operated. Jim said he and his wife love the local event so much that they've recruited annually as many as 30 fellow runners from the Brockville area Ruby said her love of the County Marathon comes as a result of many factors. It's everything. It's the start, it's the atmosphere, the scenery but the best thing that surpasses any marathon we've done is the ending at the Crystal Palace. I love that

your family comes in and meets you and there's that hometown atmosphere that's hard to describe,� she said. “I've run New York, Boston and this is by far my favourite marathon.The people are so great, they ask every year 'Is there anything we can change?' Don't change a thing. I love it, it's my favourite.� For full marathon results, visit and click on The County Marathon.

■ Police found a pair of men hiding in the bushes about five miles from Wellington at about 3:30 p.m. and arrested them in connection with the attempted robbery of the Canadian Bank of Commerce in the village at 8:30 that morning. Manager Norval Kyle saw a sawed off shotgun pointed at him and was told to “Open up quietly of we’ll kill you.” He lunged for the gun and struggled to fight the robber. The other robber had hit him in the face with the barrel of his gun. Earlier they had bound teller R.M. Watson’s hands and stole his pay. Police arrived within 15 minutes and started the manhunt, which ultimately netted men from Vancouver and Toronto. ■ The Prince Edward Fruit Growers Ltd. cold storage was working a night and a day shift to capacity as the county’s crop was estimated to be more than 40,000 barrels. Apples were being shipped at a rate of 30 carloads per week from the plant.

60 years ago — 1953

■ Mayor H.J. McFarland saved the town considerable money as he personally donated three blinking caution lights to slow traffic on Picton’s Main Street and offered $21,880 worth of paving free of charge on municipal streets within 1953. Previously, in 1952, McFarland donated $21,000 in paving to the town. ■ The Ontario Retail Farm Equipment Dealers’ Association held a banquet at the Royal Hotel. Guest speakers talked about the importance of the farmer-dealer-manufacturer relationship in improving sales, considering demand had been dropping for several years. Fewer farmers had the capital to invest in new machinery without relying on financing arrangements. ■ Picton’s Leon Hudgin was called as a Crown witness into a hearing in Morrisburg about 20 people drowning when their bus plunged into a canal. The bus had hit a stalled truck while Hudgin and other drivers tried to help get it started.

40 years ago — 1973

■ Ontario released agricultural statistics for all its counties for 1972. With all of Prince Edward County’s acreage of the field crops wheat, oats, barley, mixed grain, corn, potatoes, beans, and soybeans and hay included, the total value of crops came in at $5,215,900. ■ The campaign to build a swimming pool at PECI was moving along nicely as Lake Ontario Cement offered to donate the cement free of charge for the effort. A thermometre was to be placed at the Armoury Mall for community donations toward the overall cost of the project. ■ With hunting season in full swing, local police reported an increase in trespassing complaints. They encouraged hunters to seek written permission to enter properties.

20 years ago — 1993

■ While a full-service retail postal outlet was set to open at Teasel’s Drug Store, Canada Post denied rumours the Picton post office just a few doors away was set to close. Rep Michelle Simard said the plan was to increase service to Picton residents with the new retail outlet. ■ Glenn Coates, the chairman of Residents Against Ferry Tolls (RAFT) was able to meet with premier Bob Rae for 20 minutes about his plan to enact tolls at the Glenora crossing and on other ferries.

We did our bird banding back in those days in the old lighthouse at the tip of the Point. Looking at the same lighthouse today, it’s hard to imagine that we had it all fixed up like a little cottage with cooking facilities, sleeping accommodations, and being lulled off to sleep each night to the sound of waves lapping gently onto the cobble beach. Fond memories, and I always wanted to take one of those little six-inch owls, stuff it into my pocket, and take it home with me! I can’t imagine anything in the bird world more endearing that a sawwhet owl. As we were then, we are still learning about these little nocturnal migrants, their migration patterns, numbers, and where they are going. Prince Edward Point seems to be a significant route for these migrants and if the weather conditions are right, numbers can be staggering. In 2007, Prince Edward Point made headlines when bird banders banded 1,518 sawwhets that season, the most done in a season at a single station anywhere in North America which underscores the importance of the South Shore Important Bird Area as a migratory staging area. The public is always invited to watch the banding operation of saw-whet owls and other spring and fall migrants each year at Prince Edward Point in an effort to explain the importance of the operation. Of course, the annual spring birding festival goes a long way in

exposing the activities at the Point to the public. However, this year, a special Thanksgiving celebration is being planned called “Migration Matters. That weekend a series of events will be running through the entire Thanksgiving weekend, Oct. 12, 13 and 14. On Saturday, Sunday and Monday mornings, there will be guided bird walks from the observatory to the lighthouse. I have the pleasure of leading one of those walks on Saturday. Walks will begin at 9 am. Meet in the parking lot of the observatory. The fee will be $5 (children under 12 free) A special banding demonstration at the observatory will follow the walks. The demonstration will focus on how to identify birds in fall plumage. There also will be a small hospitality tent where coffee, water, and muffins/cookies will be available. An honour system donation box for coffee and treats sales will be on site. With any luck there will be some raptors in the area and an opportunity for guided obser-

vation. The bird observatory’s spotting scope will be set up for viewing any sightings including raptors and/or water birds. Free “Migration Matters” fridge magnets will be given to all visitors. The planned event also falls within the peak of the northern saw-whet owl banding which continues all this month. Even if you are unable to take part in the special activities this coming weekend, you are welcome to come down any night between now and October 31st to watch the banding of the owls. The best time to visit is from 8:30 p.m. until 10:30 p.m., but nights must be chosen carefully as weather conditions can dictate whether or not owls will be present. Nights with calm weather and no moon usually provides the best opportunities. The nets are not opened if the weather is too cold, windy or rainy. When I was banding saw-whet owls back in the 1980s, I always found that northwest winds and clear nights seemed to result in more owls as it was our theory that the winds helped force the owls down the peninsula, seeking an escape route to avoid migrating over open water. Those interested in coming any time this month can check ahead for a recorded message (613-476-5801). Nights can be cool down there, so dress appropriately. A warm jacket or extra layers, close-toed shoes or hiking boots, hat and gloves are a few suggestions of what you might like to bring with you.

council meeting to defer a decision on the issue to their Nov. 26 regular meeting after both the Prince Edward Heritage Advisory Committee (PEHAC) and the home owner asked for more time to work out a deal that would work for both. Resident Mark Woodward again spoke on behalf of his mother who lives in the Young/Woodward House.

The family has owned the home since 1912. He asked council to defer the issue to give him “time for alternative options to be explored with the Prince Edward Heritage Advisory Committee.” “Noteworthy discussions have been very recent, just the last couple of days,” he said. “I do not know where this will lead, if anywhere, but I and my


ry volunteers will be at the observatory to greet visitors and answer questions. If planning on viewing the operation, be sure to dress appropriately for the cooler evenings at the Point: a warm jacket or extra layers, close-toed shoes or hiking boots, hat and gloves. The volunteers at the Observatory do caution visitors to respect the banding process. While visitors are encouraged to observe the banding operations, they ask that you please stay away from the mist nets in the net lanes. Only trained volunteers are permitted to extract birds from the nets. Visitors will be guided into the area where the owl nets are located. The banders are always willing to show the whole banding process, to answer questions and to take the time for visitors to take photos. However, there should be no talking in the banding lab unless initiated by the banders. Also, if there are a lot of birds to be processed, the welfare of the birds is a priority, and questions and requests for photographs will be responded to once there is a spare moment. If there are a lot of visitors on an evening, please make sure that everyone has an opportunity to observe the banding and to take photos. We look forward to seeing everyone at the Prince Edward Point Bird Observatory this weekend. For more information on today’s topic, please e-mail or phone 613-476-5072.

Home owner, heritage committee to seek compromise solution ChadIbbotson

Staff writer

At the last committee-of-thewhole meeting it appeared the nearly 200-year-old Young/Woodward House would be removed from a listing of heritage properties, but on Tuesday both sides expressed a desire to work toward a compromise. Council voted at Tuesday's

mother are willing to take a few short weeks to figure it out.” ERA Architects Inc. associate Lindsay Reid said the company believes the county has valuable set of heritage assets. “We see this collection as a rare and significant asset in Ontario and we are committed to the conservation of it,” she said.

Halloween should be celebrated within our schools

ON Oct. 31 at several schools across North America, there won’t be a single child dressed up as a ghost, a witch, or even a princess. That’s because some administrators at those schools believe that Halloween is not inclusive and is an event that violates the religious freedoms of some students. We’re not tricked likewise. Instead, it is a treat to see students use their creative imagination and go all out to dress up like something in their dreams. That sort of creativity should be applauded as thinking outside the box is the type of thing that will give our students an edge when it comes time for them to enter the workforce — after all, many believe creative fields will be staples of any economic recovery ahead. To stifle young peoples’ inventiveness in the name of being politically correct is simply a spooky idea. There is no better family activity, either, than to put together unique, homemade costumes. There could even be prizes for the most innovative costumes and the best illusions that cost the least amount of money to make. That’s not even including the good work children do every year to raise money for Unicef or the efforts of groups like PECI’s own Making Poverty History group, which plans to fight local hunger by trick or treating. Now that’s not to say that dressing up for Halloween and celebrating in school is without its pitfalls. One can only point to an incident where adults in an eastern Ontario Legion costume contest displayed a lack of judgment by wearing racist costumes to prove that Halloween perhaps deserves to be controlled somewhat. Some costumes might be deemed too scary or too realistic, depending on the age of the people seeing the costume and cultural references drawn from it, but that’s an easy code to create and share with students long before they show up to school on Halloween. There could be rules about how much fake blood students can show, how revealing costumes can be without conflicting with existing school dress codes, and what references are inappropriate. Students at schools that create such codes could feel a sense of ownership if they are given input and a wise teacher or administrator could also use Halloween as a teachable moment to talk about subjects like intolerance, racism, or homophobia. Without that opportunity, there is a good chance that young people may not have the conversations they should be having about what is appropriate or not. One might make the argument that costumes, candy, and the excitement of the day are distractions to regular classroom learning and that would be a fair argument. Chances are, however, those students are going to be just as distracted whether they’re celebrating in school or not, and maybe more so because they just can’t wait to enjoy the day. Just like the children who love it, Halloween can sport many faces and inclusive and educational are among them. Administrators and parents just need the courage to not be too afraid to celebrate.

The CCM Story author Hospice looks to City Lights for second gala theme French dinner to give lecture at Nov. 16 to raise funds for Picton branch Oct. 17 As part of the Third Thursday Lecture series, the library is pleased to have the author of Canada Cycle & Motor – The CCM Story speaking at the Picton branch on Oct. 17 at 7p.m. For many, the name CCM is synonymous with memories of childhood bikes and sports equipment. Author John A. McKenty brings those memories and the history behind the CCM name to life on the pages of his book. Beginning with the bicycle craze of the late 19th Century through to the years of manufacturing and marketing of the popular two wheel mode of transportation, onto the company’s venture into hockey equipment right up until the end of its dominant reign, McKenty delivers a well researched and entertaining look at the iconic company. The book includes unique photographs and vintage advertisements as well. Part of the proceeds from the sale of the book helps to support Bicycles for Humanity. The author will elaborate on this global grassroots movement that brings bicycles to those in need of transportation around the world. Copies of the book will be available for purchase at the evening event. On the topic of book availability, this is a subject uppermost in our minds at the library as the cooler weather sees fewer tourists through our doors, but brings in more readers ready for a good fall read. As the library adds new titles each week, there are always interesting additions to check out. Many are incredibly popular, and one of the ways we manage the requests for these is by monitoring the Heavy Demand List produced each week. This, in addition to simply seeing which ones barely make it back to the shelf before being checked out again, is a way for us to know which titles might require the purchase of additional copies. Of course, this is weighed by purchasing

budget and reason as we don’t want to end up with ten copies of a title that, once past its height of popularity, become merely placeholders on the shelf. For readers who may end up purchasing new bestsellers, please keep in mind that the library welcomes donations of titles that are in high demand. Finding the right balance to satisfy requests is important in the library’s goal of providing excellent service. Currently, some of the titles library members are most interested in reading include A Tap on the Window by Linwood Barclay, W is for Wasted by Sue Grafton, How The Light Gets In by Louise Penny, and The Orenda by Joseph Boyden which was chosen this past week as a finalist for the 2013 Governor General Literary Award. The library also has four copies of Khaled Hosseini’s And the Mountains Echoed that continues, after a number of weeks, to be in high demand. Having read it and Hosseini’s previous novels, I can understand why so many are looking forward to reading it. You can see for yourself a book’s availability, and how many people are waiting for a title by calling your local branch during open hours or on the library website at: anytime, seven days a week, 24 hours a day.

Builder was one of first United Empire Loyalist settlers in county

“It was because of this commitment that we agreed to provide PEHAC with a heritage review of the Young/Woodward House. We were delighted to find a rare example of early 19th Century Loyalist vernacular architecture intact and stable.” Reid said the company would be happy to continue to provide its expertise and help find a compromise between PEHAC and the Woodward family. The house was constructed by Henry Young in 1815. Young has been identified as

one of the first, if not the first, United Empire Loyalist to settle in Prince Edward County. PEHAC member Leigh Moore said the committee has been working with the Woodward family to “find a mutually agreeable solution” where the property can be sold and assure the house isn't in danger of demolition in the future. “There is a rare opportunity for any community in this province, or even in this country, to preserve and protect the home of its earliest documented settlers,” he said. “This opportunity presents itself with the Young/Woodward House.”

In the Oct. 3 story “Committee supports bid to remove heritage tag” resident Mark Woodward is attributed as saying stucco was applied over rotting clapboard on the Young/Woodward House.

To clarify, Woodward actually said the clapboard was replaced with stucco. “In the late '50s and early '60s there was clapboard on the building, it was rotting and falling off and stucco was applied.”

After raising $90,000 at their inaugural Autumn Leaves Gala last fall, Hospice Prince Edward knew it would have to find something flashy for a suitable encore. They looked far and wide before settling on the bright lights of Paris and creating the City Lights theme for the Nov. 16 event at the Highline Hall in Wellington. “We’re really excited about our gala this year with the French theme,” said cochair Josh Colby. “Everything just works.” The first element the committee needed to ensure great French atmosphere was cuisine and they believe that Greg Sheridan from Sans Souci Catering can once again provide a tasty array of foods to try. “He was given the job of

building a French menu with as much local stuff on it as possible,” said Colby. Musically, Tom Leighton will help guests get the feel of a street cafe as he’ll be playing accordian leading up to the meal and dressing in his finest French attire. Following the meal and the fundraising auctions, disc jockey Jason Ferguson will

make guests feel like they’re in one of the big city’s famous discotheque dance halls. Again this year, there will be plenty available at the auction tables as Linda Middleton and Denise Richmond will once again co-ordinate the prizes — they’d welcome donations through Hospice at 613-645-4040 — and Susan Wallis will add an art auction.


After a job well done last year, Manson Slik will again be called upon to lead the live auction that night. Hospice Prince Edward executive director Nancy Parks said there will be a bit of a different spirit at this year’s gala now that the residential hospice is operational. Instead of rallying to get it built, she said this year’s event is more of a celebration of Hospice — though it is still a valuable fundraiser to raise much-needed money to keep the facility going. All of the evening’s proceeds will go toward the home. Just like last year before Hospice announced the purchase of the property at 40 Downes Aveneue, Parks indicated the organization has kept special elements of the evening under wraps. “There will be lots of surprises,” she said. “There will be lots of interesting things for everyone.” As for the residential hospice itself, Parks said it is operating at “full tilt.” She indicated four families have been through the facility and they were “very thankful.”

Restructuring must address issue of fairness

Council faces important decisions regarding the committee-of-the-whole recommendation on number of councillors and new electoral wards. I respectfully urge that those decisions should be influenced by careful consideration of the following: ·Example: Bill is planning to move to Prince Edward County. His friend Joe asks him where he plans to live: Bill: “Probably Bloomfield, South Marysburgh or Wellington.” Joe: “Given your interest in local politics you should be aware that if you choose: Wellington your representation on council will be at the level of one councillor per 1,657 people; for South Marysburgh the level will almost double (one councillor per 868 people); choosing Bloomfield will roughly triple your level of representation (one councillor per 575 people).” (Population fig-

ures from the County’s web site) It makes no sense that Bill’s ability to select and influence council should vary by a factor of three based simply on where in the county he chooses to live. This gross violation of democratic principles does not serve the public interest. On the issue of council size and electoral wards, every Council member has a duty to base his or her decisions primarily on what he or she believes serves the best interests of county residents as a whole. This is vital even if, to do so, councillors must deviate from the preferences of a majority of their local constituents and ignore conflicts with their own personal self interests. Rationale: Under normal circumstances constituents in a ward expect their local councillor(s) to follow and repre-

sent the wishes of their majority. Decisions affecting the electoral system, however, pit the broader interest of county residents against parochial interests in a minority of wards. Constituents who are unfairly advantaged have no right to expect that their local councillor will automatically put their parochial interests first. Councillors who do so become accomplices in efforts to ensure the failure of any initiative aimed at eliminating unfair distribution of political power among County residents. To honour the public trust, councillors must also suppress their own self interests in order to give unbiased consideration to: a reduction in the number of council seats despite its potential to make their re-election more difficult, or to an increase in ward size despite the likely increase in the councillor’s

travel burden. If our current unfair electoral system is to be fixed, the number of councillors must be acceptable to a majority of County residents. The only two numbers that have a chance of satisfying that requirement are 10 or 15. Both numbers still fit well with five new electoral wards. Although 15 may make coverage of the larger wards more manageable for councillors, that’s a self interest issue which must be weighed against possible loss of public confidence if Council rejects the carefully formulated recommendation of its own Citizens Assembly. Please find a way forward which eliminates unfair representation in time for the next election. Rob Williams Athol

One councillor per ward would be best configuration

The result of the work of the citizens’ assembly can and should be applauded. Although I would have liked to see a council of nine including the mayor, we are working in the right direction. The flaw in the so-called mayor’s proposal is the continuation of the election of individual councillors at large in the proposed five electoral wards.

I believe it is time to end multiple councillors from individual wards and create 10 wards with one councillor to be elected in each. I don’t care where you draw the lines as long as they are fairly distributed by population and take into account where possible but not necessarily historic community boundaries. Take Picton as an

example and if the population numbers prove balanced, it can be split into north and south wards along Main Street to Bridge Street to and through the harbour. I cannot understand — with a long history of dealing with federal and provincial riding boundaries, serving on the councils of Caledon and Peel — the nonsense

being said about how the world will come to an end and that somehow one is not going to be represented under an 11-member council and 10- or even five-ward model. I think too many are afraid of losing the next election. That would be a good thing! Pierre Klein Cherry Valley

Young House one building deserving of heritage tag

I beg council to reverse its decision regarding the Young House heritage designation. If this house, which is quite possibly the oldest in the county, has its designation removed just to make it easier to sell, why bother with the whole heritage thing at all? Colonel Henry Young

was the first European settler on East Lake and he and his sons and their families occupy some of the oldest graves in the Cherry Valley cemetery. His story is one of those about which you’d have to say “You couldn’t make this up!” Heritage is not something that anyone can bestow or

remove from a property: that is something that comes with its history. What council can do is recognize that heritage and move to protect it. If council removes the protection of the heritage designation from the Young House, as councillor Forrester stated, it would

be a green light to tear it down. This would not just be a shame, it would be shameful. Please reconsider: and in the meantime, do read about Col. Henry Young. You won't be disappointed! Barbara Wyatt Cherry Valley

QHC hospitals to scrap regular visiting hours Patients, families to decide on best times for bedside guests Jason Parks

Staff writer

Set visiting hours at Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital and other Quinte Healthcare Corporation (QHC) hospitals will soon be a policy of the past. Starting Oct. 15, it will be up to the patient and family to decide when visiting is most needed and wanted at QHC's four hospitals. The current QHC visiting times of 2-4 p.m. and 6-8 p.m. will no longer exist. Instead, patients will decide who they need at their bedside, and when. “This change is really about accepting that patients don’t have ‘visitors’. They have family and friends who are a vital part of their care team,” said President & CEO Mary Clare Egberts. “It’s all about bringing the patient and their family (whoever they define as family) into the circle of care.” Egberts added her organization has “heard

loud and clear” from communities served by the the group that an exceptional patient experience extends beyond the excellent medicine and procedures patients receive at QHC hospitals. “This is an important step in our journey to create an exceptional patient experience, one of QHC’s four strategic directions,” she said. QHC chief of staff Dr. Dick Zoutman is equally supportive of the move to an open policy of having family at the bedside and says it’s in the best interest of the patient. “Quinte Healthcare embraces family and patientcentred care,” explains Dr. Zoutman. “That means we focus what we are doing on the needs of our patients and their families as a unit and our new visiting policy is an expression of that. We recognize the importance of families and their connection with the patients’ wellbeing.” According to Dr. Zout-

man, some of the clinical benefits of having the family part of the circle of care include better healing for the patient, diminished anxiety, and increased understanding what’s happening for the patient and their loved ones. It also provides more opportunity for education as in many cases the family provides care for the patient when they transition home. In spite of ceasing set visiting hours, QHC continues to ask that anyone who is feeling unwell; has an infection; has symptoms of respiratory or flu-like illnesses not to come to the hospital as a visitor. Every visitor should practice diligent hand hygiene including using the hand sanitizer when coming into the hospital. When visiting a patient with a potentially infectious disease personal protective equipment must be worn as instructed by staff.

Hearing loss can be inevitable, but help is available

Hearing loss, unlike many other disabilities, frequently goes unnoticed. The fundamental connection between hearing loss and communication is often overlooked, and most of us donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t realize the social isolation and marginalization that comes with hearing loss. It is common for people who have a hearing loss to stop communicating with others because they are unable to hear and understand what is being said. Hearing loss can lead to withdrawal from family, friends and social situations. Due to the gradual nature of hearing loss, many people are in denial. However, help is available, and people with hearing loss can stay connected. The Canadian Hearing Society (CHS) can help reduce the isolation that accompanies





hearing loss and improve communication skills. The answer begins with recognizing your hearing loss, learning more about it and taking control of your

Some signs of hearing loss include: speaking louder than necessary in conversation; constantly asking for words repeated; straining to hear; misunderstanding conversations; favouring one ear; thinking that people always mumble; turning the television or radio up louder than usual; having difficulty hearing on the telephone; withdrawing from social contact; ringing or buzzing in the ear(s); appearing dull and disinterested, slow to respond, or just not quite â&#x20AC;&#x153;with itâ&#x20AC;?. The above was taken from a pamphlet from The Canadian Hearing Society called Get Connected, Hearing Loss. Next weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s column will continue this series and will cover the causes of hearing loss.

County Theatre Group banking on audiences enjoying Blood Brothers Fate-filled musical about twins separated at birth to hit Regent stage this month AdAm BrAmBurger

Staff writer

If it made it there, it can make it here. That’s the mantra the County Theatre Group is adopting as it prepares to stage the Willy Russell musical Blood Brothers at the end of this month. While the twisted tale of fate doesn’t have the same recognition in North America as Les Miserables or The Phantom of the Opera, it is the fourth longest running show on London’s West End — a theatre district notorious for being one of the toughest locations for a show to make it big. Blood Brothers was there for 24 years, though it spent just two years on Broadway


New York. County Theatre Group artistic director John Burns is banking on the allure of the storytelling, the talent of the cast, and the harmonious notes of the score to captivate audiences. “It’s an epic story,” he said. “The music is sublime and we have the creme de la creme of the local talent available to us involved.” The play tells the story of Mrs. Johnstone, a lowly house cleaner in post-war Liverpool. Burns explained after the city was bombed, the Beatles led a revival of sorts, but there was always a class of people dealing with crippling poverty.

Mrs. Johnstone (Carlotta Rutledge) was a lowly housekeeper in that age and she was about to have her eighth and ninth babies — fraternal twins. It was clear, however, that she couldn’t handle the additions to her family. “Welfare was after her and they were going to take her kids away because she couldn’t handle them, and it’s quite accurate because she can’t,” said Burns. At that point, Johnstone crafts a deal with her boss Mrs. Lyons (Penny Kitchen) to give that woman one of the children to raise as her own. Johnstone initially liked the deal as she’d be around



her own child. Eventually, however, she is fired from her cleaning job and both women try to keep the children away from one another. Not surprisingly, when they have opportunity to meet, the boys Eddie (Tom Harris) and Mickey (Kevin Pierson) develop a fondness for one another, though they never find out their secret. The boys grow up and in their early 20s, they both court the same girl Linda (Emilie Moffatt). Eventually, as if by fate, they discover their secret and die tragically. Burns said there’s really no hiding the plot from the audiences in this tale. “It’s like Romeo and Juliet, where they guy stands up at the start, says a sonnet, then walks off and you watch what he said unfold,” he said. “They live their separate lives, they find out, and they die.” Tom Higginbottom actually gets to be that person who reveals the tale as the narrator. Some of his lines are as follows... “Did you hear the story of the Johnstone

twins, as like each other as two new pins. How one weas kept and one given away. How they were born and they died, one the self same day.” Rounding out the cast are Roanna Kitchen, Michael Christianson, Gord Mitchell,

The show also features more than 300 lighting cues. In all, Burns said the budget for the show was just shy of $40,000 and if they paid market price for all the talent, onstage and off, he said it might have cost over a $1 million to produce.

Action-packed Prince Edward Community Theatre season opens Oct. 18 with Trying

While its subscription series plays a major role in Prince Edward Community Theatre’s season each year, the company is branching off into several new things for its sixth season. The subscription series is slated to open Oct. 18 with a play that reunites the hit duo from season four’s Educating Rita, John McCarthy and Hilary Fennell, in a play company founder Lynn Fennell described as a modern Canadian classic. The characters will bring life to Joanna Glass’s Trying on the Mt. Tabor stage for a

run of four shows Oct. 18, 19, 25, and 26. “This play presented an opportunity to stage a remarkable story of two characters in very different stages of their lives who are brought together under difficult, trying circumstances,” Fennell said. “The evolution of this relationship forms the basis of what one reviewer called a ‘warm, wonderful play of generational reconciliation.’” The subscription series will continue in February with Neil Simon’s The Odd Couple (female version), and

end in May with the comic thriller Deathtrap, written by Ira Levin. Subscriptions for the series are available for $36 — saving $12 from the at-thedoor prices to see each show individually — during the run of Trying, by phone at 613-476-5925, or by e-mailing Fennell at Individual show tickets are available in Picton at the Gazette, Imperial Submarine, or Kelly’s and in Wellington at SideStreet Gallery. They are $14 in advance, $16 at the door, and $10 each for groups

of eight or more booking in advance by calling Bonnie at 613-476-5925. Patrons are encouraged to buy in advance to ensure they receive a ticket. For the first time this year, Fennell confirmed the company will participate in the Eastern Ontario Drama League (EODL) one-act festival in Merrickville Nov. 9. The featured show will be last season’s A Scent of Honeysuckle, which starred Wilma McCagg, Paulina McMahon, and Susan Mitchell under the direction of Georgia Papanicolaou and Jennifer Goodman.

This March, the company will take another first step as it plans to stage its EODL fulllength entry aside from the subscription series at Huff Estates. The Yasmina Reza play God of Carnage (translated by Christopher Hampton) won a Tony Award for best play on Broadway in 2009 and is expected to feature a strong cast of the festival’s reigning best actor Mark Daniher, Pat Larkin, Papanicolaou and Cheryl Singer, under the direction of Bill McMahon. “Gaining production rights was a real coup for

Prince Edward Community Theatre,” said Fennell. Subscribers will be able to secure tickets for $10, while the general public can see the show for $14. On the final night, March 29, there will be a dinner theatre production catered by chef Michael Hoy. Tickets for all four performances will be limited and will only go on sale after The Odd Couple closes in February. Further details are available online at -Adam Bramburger, Staff

Pirates, Rebels each win at home in back-to-back games Teams jockey for position atop Empire standings ChaD ibbotson

Staff writer

The Picton Pirates early season streak ended at three as the team fell to the Campbellford Rebels in the second half of a home-and-home series over the weekend. The Pirates were able to edge out a 4–3 shootout victory over the Rebels last Thursday, but weren't able to earn a victory despite a lot of shots in a 3–1 loss in Campbellford on Saturday. Pirates coach and general manager Ryan Woodward said the team will look to take the positives and throw away the negatives of the weekend's games while learning from the loss. “We were happy with getting the two points on our home ice. We're not happy we haven't played a full 60 minutes yet,” said Woodward. “We've had some breakdowns in our own end, but it's early in the season and getting the split with a good team like Campbellford is a positive.” Thursday's contest was a slow build to a frenzied boil. A mostly even first period saw both teams escape early penalties unscathed. It wasn't until 15:56 of the first that Kenny Murduff was able to net a power-play goal with Grant Fry in the box for roughing. Evan Greer and Jack Davison had

the assists. Picton took the one-goal lead into the second, but an early tally from Jeremy Doherty evened things up. Campbellford held a slight

advantage in shots at 14–12 in the middle frame, but the deadlock carried into the third period. Corey Prince was finally able to break the tie at 8:55

of the third with affiliate players Calum Kennelly and Connor Gunter assisting on the play. The Pirates didn't waste any time adding some insurance as

just 26 seconds later Greer finished off a play from Davison and Sizer to make it 3–1. Seconds later Campbellford's T.J. Patterson was

hauled down on a breakaway and was awarded a penalty shot, but Picton goalie Andrew Pearson shut the door. Patterson, however, scored at 18:31 of the final frame to give the Rebels some life. The frenzy was on and just under a minute later Mitch Gibson was able to even things up. “A little bit of fatigue was setting in. We finally pushed and got that 3–1 lead and then sat back a little bit,” Woodward said. “We had to cut the bench quite a bit on the back end so guys were a little bit tired and a couple bounces, some breakdowns, and a lost race to a loose puck, and it ends up in the back of your net.” Overtime solved nothing so the game went to the shootout. Gibson, Doherty, and Patterson were stopped while Brian Bunnett scored to give the Pirates the two points. “That's a good lesson learned. Guys have to finish games right to the buzzer, they can't let up until it's over,” said Woodward. “Teams have the ability to tie things up in a hurry.” Greer tallied a goal and an assist in the win. He now has 12 points in five games this season. “The nice thing about Evan is he's a 200-foot player. He puts in the effort in his own end, creates turnovers in the neutral zone, and uses his speed on the attack,” Woodward said.

Wellington extends winning streak to nine games by beating Trenton, Lindsay Steven Deeg making the most of opportunity to play regular offensive role with Dukes after off-season trade from Fury Jason Parks

Staff writer

Second verse, same as the first? In the first month of the 2013-14 Ontario Junior Hockey League Schedule, the Wellington Dukes (10-2-0) showed they mean business, ending the month of the September on a six game winning streak. In spite of the calendar change, the local junior A outfit hasn't missed a beat, winning its first three games in October to run their winning streak to nine games (a game last night after press time in Toronto against the Lakeshore Patriots notwithstanding) and are the top club in the 22 team league. Maybe not foreign terri-

tory given their history as a top flight OJHL club but certainly a nice result for Dukes fans that sat patiently through last seasons's building year. Veteran players are delivering for Wellington and younger Dukes stars are following suit. Goaltending is no longer a question, it's the answer most nights. And that lousy power play that couldn't click last season? Wellington is lethal with the man advantage, producing at a league leading 26.5 per cent. But for Wellington Dukes coach and General Manager Marty Abrams, leadership flowing from the veterans to the rookies and younger players has been the key to suc-

cess. “We are going to go as far as our veterans are going to propel us and, early on in the season, it's a great sign that our best players have been our best players. Our top end guys have been providing that great leadership in the room and on the ice and that's the biggest thing through the first 12 games,” Abrams said. Wellington racked up their ninth straight win Sunday at home against the Lindsay Muskies. Wellington got out to a 3-0 lead through 20 minutes and cruised to a 5-3 victory. Steven Deeg had a pair of goals in the first and added an assist later to cap off an incredible weekend in which he had six points in three games.

In fact, with his pair against the Fish, the 20-yearold Ajax native has matched his career high in goals in a season. In Whitby last year, it took Deeg 52 games to amass 10 goals. In Wellington? Just a dozen. “We watched (Deeg) play as a minor midget player and he was a skill guy back then. But you kind of get put in a situation that's hard to get out of. He's been the league's most reliable two-way player, showing stability and strong defensive play but now he's able to find more offence without sacrificing what's made him a great player,” Abrams said.

LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 Libra, sometimes you put blinders on to situations that make you uncomfortable. It is your way of coping. But this week you need to keep your eyes wide open. SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22 Scorpio, you do not have the patience for puzzles this week. Encourage coworkers and family members to be as concise as possible when declaring their intentions. SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 Sagittarius, this week you will have to do a number of things on your own. Make the most of this situation, as it might just prove to be a good test of character. CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20 A change of scenery could provide the change in perspective you need right now, Capricorn. The trouble is finding the right time to get away. Plan a weekend trip if you can manage it. AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 Aquarius, even though you may not relish the role, you often have to be the voice of reason. Express yourself clearly but take others' ideas into consideration as well. PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20 Channel all of your creative ideas into one big project, Pisces. Once you have taken that initiative, the project will take off.

Dukes host defending champs tomorrow Tournament gets Atom AE Kings rolling STREAK, from page 15

“It's a win-win. It's been great for Steven's career and it's great for us.” Mike Soucier and Cody Gratton each had powerplay markers while Erick Delaurentis also bulged the twine for the league- leading club.Adam Wood stopped 29 shots for Wellington in a nice bounce back game. Wood was lifted from his last start in Cobourg after allowing two goals on four shots. “ I was happy for him,” Abrams said. “I know he has a history with Lindsay and that he would be up for the game. The goals weren't his fault and I wasn't surprised with the effort he turned in.” Friday night, a great crowd saw the Dukes get past the rival Trenton Golden Hawks 4-3. The Dukes held leads in this game of 2-0 and 4-2 but were never really able to quash the Hawks until late when Trenton's Ryan Kinsella took a minor penalty inside the final minute and the visitors couldn't mount the expected final assault on the hosts' net. The to-and-fro of the club's play this season hasn't been glaring due to the positive results. But it's something Abrams is watching closely. “There's been a a little bit of a pattern of surrendering leads, letting teams crawl back into games and it's a lack of a killer instinct,” he said. “When you let teams hang around, you have to shorten the bench and it can really change the way you manage a game. The good thing is we've shown all kinds of character and grit, the special teams are producing and the goaltending has been solid.” Josh Supryka broke open the scoring late in the first when he tipped an Andrew Coupland point shot at 17:01 to put Wellington up 1-0. In the opening minute of the second, Gratton made Trenton pay for not being ready as Luc Brown found him in the slot and the shifty centre beat Hawk netminder Denny Dubblestyne to make it 2-0 Wellington. That lead was wiped out in about two minutes as the Hawks beat Lucas Machalski twice at the midway point of the game. Nick Santoro took advantage of a lapse in the Wellington defensive zone coverage, firing it home at 10:29 Just 54 seconds later, the Hawks ran roughshod over everything in the Wellington zone and ex OHLer Fab Ricci cleaned up the garbage in front of Machalski to knot it at 2-2. Later in the frame, the OJHL's top producing power-play unit was afforded an extended 5-on-3

‘We’ve shown all kinds of character and grit, the special teams are producing, and the goaltending has been solid. ’ M.aBraMs DUKeS COaCH

opportunity and Deeg went to work, slipping it past Dubblestyne at 16:23. Deeg would make it 4-2 in the third, bagging the eventual game winner again on the power play at 6:16. Trenton would again take advantage of sloppy play in the Wellington zone midway through the third to make it a 4-3 game in the hosts favour, however the Hawks were unable to get any closer. Hawks captain Tyler Mayea took a minor penalty just seconds after Dukes defenceman Austin Broadhurst was whistled for holding at 14:36, washing out a prime Hawk opportunity. On Wednesday, the Dukes took a 4-1 win out of the Aurora Tigers at the Aurora Community Centre. With the teams tied at 11through most of the first and almost all of the second, it was Deeg who once again was instrumental in the club's win. The forward tipped a

Kyle Paat point shot with just 6.7 seconds left in the second to lift the Dukes to a 2-1 lead. In the third, Brown barely crossed the Tigers blueline and fooled Aurora starter Kevin Entmaa with a well placed shot, clanking it off the post and into the Tiger's cage. A Delaurentis empty net goal in late going sealed the scoring. Machalski was spot on for Wellington, an early Tiger goal in the opening five minutes the only blight in his 34 shots of service. Spencer Turcotte scored the equalizer for Wellington later in the first but was lost to the Dukes in this game and the following two thanks to a check-to-thehead major penalty two minutes into the second stanza. “He's spent an lot of time on personal conditioning and that's paying off. Spencer has been a great leader, has a bullet shot, plays physical, and is a guiding figure in the room. We really missed him when he wasn't in the line up,” Abrams said. Wellington is at home Friday evening to South division leading St. Michaels. 'Round the Roc: Wellington was ranked eighth in Canada in the weekly rankings...First in the league on the power play, Wellington is fifth in penalty killing in the OJHL...How tough is the East this season? All five teams have winning percentages above .600.

An early preseason tournament win appears to be a bellwether indication of a strong season for the Ainsworth Funeral Home Atom AE County Kings. The Kings picked up their first OMHA regular season win Saturday afternoon, downing the Douro Dukes 6-2. Nathan Wood potted a pair for the home side while Nathan Percy, Ryan Cunningham, Emerson Byford and Jarrett Osterhout all had singles. Aiden Reddick had a pair of helpers for the Kings while Ben Lamorre, Spencer Scott, Logan Blower and Byford also has assists.

Nolan Lane had the win in the Kings net. The Kings blew through the competition at the Belleville Jr. Bulls Preseason Tilt Tournament two weeks ago, going undefeated en route to the overall championship. The only team to give the Kings a test in the 8 team preseason tune up was the Port Hope Phantoms. After the Kings shaded the Phantoms in preliminary play, the clubs hooked up in the finals for an epic battle that was decided in a shootout. Austin Bryans, Wood and Cunningham all had goals in regulation for the Kings and the club looked in fine shape to capture the title until the Phantoms

EVERALL, In loving memory of a dear Mom and Grandmother, Elizabeth "Liz" Everall, who passed away October 12, 2005. I glanced into the mirror Never dreaming that I'd see A face, one so familiar, Yet you were looking back at me. I saw your loving smile, so warm That crinkle round your eyes I heard your gentle laughter Your often soothing sighs. While reading stories to my children I heard your voice in mine, I pause and think of years gone by, another place and time. You nurtured me and watched me grow Held me when I cried And through I often stumbled, You were always by my side. You shared the love of God with me Taught me how to pray And often when unsure You helped me find my way, I'm often told I'm just like you A compliment I treasure For within my heart I know we have a love beyond all measure Love you and miss you Mom, Love Karen and family

Heather King

In loving memory of a wonderful Mom and Nana, missed since October 11, 2011. Those we love, don't fade away, they are within us everyday.

MINAKER, In loving memory of Greg (Jelly Bean) Minaker, brother, brother-in-law and uncle. He left us quietly, His thoughts unknown, But left us a memory, We are proud to own. So treasure him, Lord, In Your garden of rest, For when on earth He was one of the best Always remembered and sadly missed by Lorna, Smitty and Dillon.


A father, farmer, firefighter and friend One year ago your life came to an end With four bright children to carry your name You will never be forgotten, that much is plain

A piece of you lives with everyone you touched Greg, we all miss you very much Susanne, Steven and Meghan

MINAKER, In loving memory of our friend, Greg, who passed away October 10, 2012. For this one farmer the worries are over, lie down and rest your head, Put the tractor in the shed. Put away your tools and sleep in peace. The fences have all been mended. Hang up your shovel inside the barn; your work here on earth is done. The sun is setting, the cattle are all bedded down, Your love of the soil has passed on to your kin; Wash off your work boots in the puddle left by blessed rain one final time. Take off your gloves and put them down, no more sweat and worry for you now. Your labour is done, your home now is in Heaven. Your legacy lives on. Your love of the land. We will close the gate. Missed by Doug and Karen, Mary and Rick and Kim and Tim. ROSE, George N.- In loving memory of a dear husband, father and grandfather, who passed away October 13, 1998. Its not what we write or even what we say, Its what we feel within our hearts, As we think of you each day. As times goes on without you, And as days turn into years, They hold a million memories and a thousand silent tears. Always loved and remembered, Edra, Sandra, Rick and Susan and all the grandchildren.


In loving memory of a dear son and brother “Tony” Anthony Arthur, who passed away suddenly October 19, 1973. Do not stand at my grave and weep; I am not there, I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow, I am the diamond glints on snow, I am the sunlight on ripened grain, I am the gentle autumn’s rain. When you awaken in the morning’s hush, I am the swift uplifting rush Of quiet birds in circled flight. Do not stand at my grave and cry; I am not there, I did not die. Lovingly remembered by his family.

Peever back Panthers prepare for Bay of Quinte races Seniors Miller, on Pirates’ Stakes offer strong performances blue line

SPLIT, from page 15

Woodward said Greer provides leadership through his compete level. He said some players need to continue to work on their conditioning so they can battle at both ends of the ice. “Those other forwards can look at him and look at his compete level in all three zones and hopefully they want to follow his lead,” he said. Saturday's road trip to Campbellford saw a hungry Pirates team stonewalled. In the first period alone the Pirates fired 17 shots at the Campbellford cage, but weren't able to beat goaltender Kevin Valdes. With less than a minute remaining in the first period Joshua Leavey potted the game's first goal for Campbellford, beating Pearson. The Pirates' play remained steady in the second period, but they weren't able to even the score. With three minutes remaining Nolan Powers was called for unsportsmanlike conduct and the Rebels headed to the power play. Just 50 seconds into the man advantage Gibson beat Pearson to give Campbellford the two-goal lead. Through two periods the Pirates had fired 26 shots on goal, but weren't able to capitalize. Just 4:32 into the third, the hole got deeper as Jordan Boutilier added a goal. “We were creating some chances, hitting some posts and there were some scrambles, but it's a tough rink to find open ice to bury our chances,” said Woodward. Finally, at 9:23, Taylor Brown got Picton on the board when he finished off a play from Davison and Sizer. The Pirates were hoping to repeat Campbellford's late-game heroics from the previous contest, but weren't able put another puck behind Valdes despite firing 19 shots on goal in the final 20 minutes. “Give Campbellford credit, they're a good hockey club. They played well,” said Woodward. “We were disappointed with the loss, but I thought we generated a lot of opportunities. We hemmed them in at times, and the goaltender did play very well.” The club welcomed defenceman Brandon Peever back into the lineup on Saturday while forward Levi George was absent. Woodward said lineups are still in flux early in the season. “People need to take a little breather and not keep such a close eye on what we're doing with the '92 (birth year) situation,” Woodward said. “Brandon is back now, it was obvious we needed help on defence and Brandon solidifies that for us. This team is still a work in progress.” The Pirates next face the Napanee Raiders tonight at the Prince Edward Community Centre at 7:30. The team then travels to Deseronto to take on the Storm Friday night at 7:30.

The PECI Cross-Country Panthers are nearing the home stretch in their preparations for the Bay of Quinte championships. Next Wednesday, the team will be at the Goodrich-Loomis Conservation Area ready to run for individual opportunities to advance to the COSSA meet in Port Hope Oct. 23. Thus far, in addition to regular training runs after school, the Panthers have competed at the Ganaraska Invitational in Port Hope and the Bay of Quinte Invitational at Goodrich-Loomis. Coach Laurie Spencer said seniors Mackenzie Miller and Wes Stakes have led the way with strong efforts in the female and male categories respectively. “Mackenzie runs consistent races and demonstrates excellent work ethic in practices,” said Spencer, who added Stakes recently placed first in his division in the County half-marathon. The team also has a bit of international flavour on it as Belgian exchange student Sarah Kaesmacher is running this year. In Belgium, she did not have the opportunity to compete in school sports. Overall, Spencer said she really enjoys working with

Window Replacement

The installation of new windows is one of the more major upgrades popular with homeowners. The reason for upgrading a home's windows can be strictly for cosmetic reasons, to reduce a home's energy consumption, or both. One thing that is certain is that applying a new window style and one of the new frame colours available can dramatically change your home's overall appearance. New windows are also a popular pre-sale upgrade, and for good reason – buyers love to see ‘new windows' noted in the features of homes they are considering. Plus, the new energy-saving technology incorporated into new windows can save a lot of money on heating and air conditioning costs. One thing to consider when buying windows, whether you plan to install them yourself or have that taken care of by professionals, is whether to get simple ‘inserts' or go with a ‘full-frame' approach. Going the insert method means leaving the old frame in, applying a new window unit that is slightly smaller than the opening and trim. Many companies that offer replacement window installation will suggest you go with inserts because they contract the installation part out and it is easier to find installers to do this simpler

method. With the full-frame method, you remove the old frame and size the window to fit into the ‘rough opening'. Depending on the age of your home and framing method employed, this can mean a significant increase in window size. For example, by enlarging a 61 x 122 cm (2 x 4 ft) window by just 5 cm (2 in) on all sides you will increase the opening by more than 25%! Another benefit of the full-frame method is that by removing the entire old frame, you can check the integrity of the wood around the opening, as windows are often a source of persistent leaks that can cause hidden damage. Plus, you can ensure a proper seal around the new window and apply spray foam in any small openings for optimal insulation. The full-frame replacement does make installation of new window casing mandatory, but the finished look is less bulky than with inserts, and new casing is often something that homeowners replace regardless of which installation method they choose. So if you are considering new windows for your home, be sure to get at least three quotes for both the insert and full-frame methods to see which is right for you. The extra cost may well be worth it.

To the left of the foyer waits thehearth-warmed living room, while a study (or dining room, if you choose) offers a quiet zone on the right. Ahead, the kitchen — highly functional with a long island — opens to the hearth and family rooms, both topped by a decorative beamed ceiling. All four bedrooms restupstairs, including the roomy master suite with its dual-sink private bathroom. A bonus room on this level invites expansion.
