There may have been some precipitation in the air, but there was no raining on the Prince Edward County Marathon's parade on Sunday. Well over 1,000 runners took part in the ninth annual event on Sunday in spite of grey skies and periods of intermittent rain. Thankfully, the winds stayed down for most of the event, meaning those taking part in the full marathon weren't tasked with running into the teeth of sustained gusts that typically blow in from West Lake across County Rd. 12 during gloomy days. And well some runners arrived at the finish line wet and soggy, they were, for the most part, no worse for wear. Race manager Lisa Lindsay said she was satisfied with the running of the event from start to finish. “The event went off very well, it was a wonderful day,” Lindsay told the Gazette Tuesday. “I was worried about my Re/Max water station volunteers but they keep doing it with a smile and the runners are so appreciative of their efforts.” This year Subway in Picton got on board as a race sponsor and fed those

Beginner’s luck tips scales at Wellington weigh-off Pumpkinfest champ delivers 1,148-lb entry in difficult growing year AdAmBrAmBurger

Staff writer

With a summer filled with drought-like conditions, this wouldn't seem to be the best year for beginners to start growing giant pumpkins. Jim Reid, however, managed just fine. Reid took top honours at the 16th annual Wellington Pumpkinfest with an entry that tipped the scales at 1,148 lb, edging hometown favourite John Vincent of Northport by 15 lb. Reid, who selected his prize pumpkin from eight he germinated in Martintown, just north of Cornwall said he had some extra motivation to get into

growing this year. "My cousin has been growing in Prince Edward Island for about 13 years now," he said. "He developed leukemia and last year he had a hard time doing it. This year he's taking a year off." Following that visit, Reid's wife bought him a membership in the Giant Vegetable Growers Club and he travelled to a convention last year to hear the likes of Vincent and past world-record holder Jim Bryson talk about their Big deBut Jim Reid, of Martintown, shows off the methods for growing the giant pumpkin that won first place at the Wellington Pumpmonster vegetables.

With Ontario's unemployment rates still hovering above the national average and spending still on an upswing, Prince Edward Hastings MPP Todd Smith said this is no time to be taking a break. The first-term representative won't be able to work for his constituents in the Queen's Park legislature or its committees in the foreseeable future, however, as Premier Dalton McGuinty prorogued the legislature indefinitely Monday night following an announcement of his impending resignation. McGuinty noted he'd stay on as premier until his party had chosen a successor. "On his way out the door, the premier is once again doing what is right for the Liberal party and ignoring what is right for the citizens of Ontario," Smith said. "There's a lot of work that still needs to be done." Smith pointed to province's fall economic statement which the Liberal government released Monday in the legislature, just hours before McGuinty's surprise announcement as proof that this isn't the time to be playing politics and shuttering the legislature down. "This is a tipping point for Ontario. As you know, the credit rating agencies have been watching Ontario closely and we've already had a few downgrades under McGuinty. The fall economic statement indicated spending has increased $3.7 billion and our deficit is up to $14.4 billion." Smith added that fall economic statement also didn't touch on the controversy surrounding the movement of two gas-fired power plants already in construction in the Greater Toronto Area to Sarnia and Lennox and Addington respectively at a cost of $700 million to $1 billion.

County joins program to help with economic development in the Caribbean Staff might be invited to share expertise and network with officials in other countries at no extra cost to municipality Chad Ibbotson

Although some councillors were concerned about the optics of participating in the program, committee of the whole voted last week to support the municipality's

participation in a Caribbean Local Economic Development Program (CARILED). The Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) in partnership with the Caribbean Forum of Local Government Ministers (CFLGM), the Caribbean

Association of Local Government Authorities (CALGA) and the Commonwealth Local Government Forum (CLGF) is starting the six-year, $23.2million project to spur sustainable local economic development in the

Caribbean. CARILED is funded by the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) and will run from 2012 to 2018 to support close to 50 local governments and agencies in their economic development initiatives, targeting small and medium size enterprises. A report from chief administrative officer Merlin Dewing presented at last week's committee-of-thewhole meeting says the FCM is looking to develop a “resource pool� of 15–20 Canadian municipalities that will be able to serve as models for the program. The report says municipalities, municipal associations, elected officials and municipal staff can volunteer for the program in several ways. As a municipality, a co-ordinator and a team of two to four can participate in the design and management of a project. The program sources individual municipal experts for partners' specific needs and municipalities can act as a host for study tours in which they share best practices by hosting delegations from the Caribbean. Dewing said there will be no extra cost to the mu-

nicipality to participate in the program and any staff who are tapped to get involved or visit the Caribbean as part of the program would be required to complete work either beforehand or upon their return as no extra staff would be hired for the interim. Dewing said the FCM would cover all travel and accommodation costs for those participating in the program. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It will provide substantial growth for staff and the municipality,â&#x20AC;? Dewing told councillors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The staff who would normally be involved would not be replaced, they would come back and pick up their work or prepare for it beforehand.â&#x20AC;? Dewing said when working out of the country staff would be away for at least a week. Staff would be paid as they usually would for that time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It's a fantastic opportunity at close to no cost that will provide great profile for the municipality and provide great opportunities for expanding the way we look at economic development â&#x20AC;&#x201D; especially the micro and small economic development areas,â&#x20AC;? he said. He said the program would offer a municipality chances to learn from other municipalities as well as

show what the County is doing. He said Prince Edward County appears to be a good fit for what the FCM is looking for. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We feel that our community development profile most appropriately meets what the FCM is looking for and it's quite unique in that it's almost a guarantee that there will be bilateral learning â&#x20AC;&#x201D; it won't be a onesided opportunity,â&#x20AC;? he said. Councillor Jamie Forrester wasn't convinced the municipality wouldn't incur some costs associated with the program and worried about the optics of sending municipal staff away while the municipality works to cut back on spending. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We've reduced staff we're moving everybody around. Is this the right time? We have somewhat of a new economic development department. Is this the right time to be sending our staff off two-to-three times a year?â&#x20AC;? Forrester said. Forrester said he had no doubt the program would be a valuable one, he said it could be hard to present that to the public. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At a time where we're talking about hardships in Prince Edward County and increases in taxes, we've basically said times are tough we have to get everything under control, it's hard to sell to the general public that we're going to send staff off to the Caribbean,â&#x20AC;? he said. Councillor Bev Campbell said she sees the program as a growth opportunity for the municipality. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I also see it as a good way to market the county,â&#x20AC;? she said. Councillor Barbara Proctor echoed the sentiment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It will be a great networking opportunity for the county,â&#x20AC;? she said.

Omwenga battled through the conditions and posted a winning time of 2:34.43 “The race wasn't bad and I like the course, it's a nice course,” the 33-year-old said. “The problem was the weather. I came hoping to run in 2:22 but when it was raining and I felt I couldn’t make that time.” Omwenga capped off an excellent season in 2012, having captured the Victoria, Levis (Quebec), and Manitoba Marathons this year. When asked if he expected to take home the 2012 Rolf Lund Memorial Cup, Omwenga was forthright. “Yes, of course I was expecting to win and to also set the course record but the weather wouldn't let me,” Omwenga said “I would

The top female finisher was believed to by Battawa's Jutta Merlainen with a time of 2:51:27, however, her finish was changed after the race as her run was protested. Lindsay was tight lipped about the finishing order being changed but it was reported Merlainen was stripped of what would have been her third title in the event's nine-year history due to an unregistered pace runner that joined her partway through her run. That protest was believed to have come from Anna Kibor, a Kenyan running out

Among those running in the event for the first time were Brockville's Joanne Sine, Jan Smith, Rhiannon Iles and Gayle Prosser. The quartet were taking part in the half marathon as a celebration of Sine's 50th birthday and were all wearing pink outfits and tiaras. Iles, herself, was supposed to run the marathon in 2011 put an untimely injury five days prior derailed her run and it was decided by the four friends the 2012 half marathon would be a memorable way to toast Sine's birthday. In spite of the weather, the four were excited and ready to take part in the event Sunday morning. “Absolutely, I think we will be smiling the whole way and we've got $50 worth of Copper Kettle chocolate to keep us going,” Iles laughed. Another first-timer was Matt Tweedy. Tweedy was Quinte's Biggest Loser, having shedded 63 pounds in a recent weight dropping competition. Overall, Tweedy is down 103 pounds since January and even though he broke a rib in September, he was taking part in the 2012 PEC Marathon. “I'm going to make it happen...if I have to pull out, I'll pull out but I'm planning on finishing it,” Tweedy said. “I wouldn't have thought about this a year ago, I wouldn't have even said the word marathon. I was a smoker, I weighed 400 pounds, and I couldn't walk a half- kilometre to the park with my son. It's hard to imagine I'm about to take part in this event.” Let the record show Tweedy did finish the 2012 PEC half-marathonarathon in a time of 2:37.55 Another rookie PEC Marathoner was the winner, Thomas Omwenga of Kenya by way of Hamilton.

Over the next couple weeks, the bellowing of skips directing their teammates and the smashing of rocks together might not be the only sounds one hears at the Prince Edward Curling Club. President Richard Linnett indicated the club has hired a local contractor to work on a $50,000 project intended to upgrade the facility as part of conditions in the club’s lease with the county. “We were obliged to accept responsibility for the building by the county when the lease was renegotiated last year,” Linnett said. “Providing accessible access by 2014 was one of the changes that we knew we would need to make.” The club is working to install ramps to provide access to both the upper lounge level and the ice level and it is also in the process of adding an accessible washroom at the lounge level. The situation also provided the club an opportunity to upgrade electrical systems, replace doors and insulation, and add some fresh paint in some areas of need. Linnett said he is hopeful the changes will be finished by the time the curling season starts next Monday. According to Linnett, the

‘What you will see is we will likely try to take advantage of renting it out more now that it’s accessible.’ R. LINNETT CLUB PRESIDENT

club’s membership will absorb the costs of the changes, something it is able to do because of a steady incline in the number of people participating in its programs on a regular basis. “It looks like we will have 10 more members this year on top of last year and we have been getting 10-15 more each year for the past five years,” he explained. While Linnett wouldn’t rule out the possibility of an outside sponsorship to help with the costs — the club has put some feelers out already — he said one thing the membership will not do is go back to the county to ask for any taxpayer money. As far as he’s aware, the accessibility improvements will not have a major impact on the membership during the curling season as the upgrades are not something membership has been

demanding. “We don’t have a single curling member who would need the upgrades,” he said. “There are a lot of events in the summer that would really take advantage of that.” The club has hosted events like the Great Canadian Cheese Festival, the Picton County Fair, the WI Craft Show, antique shows, model train shows, and plant shows in the past. Linnett also figures the improvements may give the club an opportunity to create more revenue in future years. “What you will see is that we will likely try to take advantage of renting it out more now that it is accessible,” he said. Overall, while Linnett said the move will require a bit of adjustment and some short-term pain on members’ pocketbooks, the club’s financial future is bright, specifically with the “significant and good” trend of new member growth. As far as future projects go, Linnett said nothing else is immediately on the front burner as ongoing maintenance will be a top priority. Long term, Linnett said the club will likely look to refit its existing washrooms and its kitchen. “That’s in the future, though,” Linnett said.

Maasai warriors stress importance of education

Kenyan guests tell PECI students about traditions and changes AdAm BrAmBurger

Staff writer

On most days, the right to an education is taken for granted in these parts. Last Friday, PECI students were reminded how privileged they are to have been born in Canada where going to school is part of their culture. That afternoon, the school received a visit from Wilson Meikuaya and Jackson Ntirkana, two men who are part of the Maasai tribes who have occupied an area of present-day Kenya and Tanzania south of the Nile River for several centuries. The two men made the trek to PECI after a 36-hour plane flight to Canada as a way of helping international aid organizations Free The Children and Me to We thank the school and its Make Poverty History club for raising more than $20,000 worth of donations to staff and supply an elementary school in Kenya. During the presentation, the men discussed how their tribes feared the government and believed that by bringing children to schools, the government was taking their youth and dealing a blow to their distinct culture. Meikuaya recalled being told about school at a young age by another boy who had been and who had learned to count and identify animals by colour and size, he remembered asking his parents to send him. “That day, mom and dad sat me down telling me they knew about school. It was a place that took children away from parents and stole culture away from Maasai,” he said. He recalls his parents taking action to move away from the government and police who were coming to find students to educate and the reinforced the idea Maasai shouldn’t attend. “Mom and dad warned me if you ever see the government come to steal us away from home to school, we were supposed to run,” he said. Ntirkana also remembered hostility on the part of his family toward school. “My parents also told me strangers and the police

would come around and try to steal us away from home.” Eventually, however, both young men did get taken to schools — Ntirkana overcoming his fears through the kindness of a police officer — and both found it was nothing to be feared, but rather it was something their people should embrace. “I was nervous I would never see my family again. I was surprised how cool these people were,” said Ntirkana. Added Meikura: “We had students from all over the country. They were from different tribes and different clans of the Maasai, but could love and share. We learned so much from one another.” Traditionally, young Maasai men were charged with becoming warriors and protecting their families and their cows from impending dangers — essentially, they were to become warriors. The Maasai warriors traditionally trained under the elders of the village and learned how to be adept with weaponry and kill predatory animals to protect their families if that’s what they had to do in order to survive. The final test to become warriors was to kill a healthy lion with just a number of primitive weapons — including a spear, machete, bow and arrow, and a sort of club — and both young men had to do that at about the same age as a Grade 8 graduate here in Canada before their

families would allow them to go on to secondary school. Meikuaya said he could think of almost nothing else but to continue with his education and he said his schooling gave him courage to listen to the elders and then go on the hunt. Both men killed lions within months of going to the elders’ cave to learn and both eventually not only finished high school, but also earned their university degrees in Nairobi, two of the first in their tribe to accomplish that feat. Meikuaya said that his formal education trumps his hunting prowess when it comes to protecting and helping his people. “If you have an education, you are more safe to protect your family. A drought will not take your knowledge away.” The men said their generation has marked a change to a different value system where the new warriors of their culture — both males and now females — are those who go on to get a formal education and bring it back to help the tribes. While working as ambassadors and sharing the progress they’ve made, Meikuaya and Ntirkana are also careful to respect the traditions their culture holds dear. They’ve shared their experiences in a book called The Last Maasai Warriors which tells about their upbringing and they do their

speaking engagements in traditional dress — red to attract vulnerable animals, wearing jewels female members of the tribe have given them for their honourable deeds, and demonstrating the tools they had to use to get ahead. Students enthusiastically participated in the questionand-answer sessions and many stayed behind after the presentation for photos and a chance to speak with the warriors directly. Student co-president Kurtis Brewster said he found himself inspired by the warriors. He said he and his fellow students could follow in their footsteps, showing resolve and dedication to achieve their goals in life. “I found it interesting how badly they wanted to go to school and the obstacles they were willing to overcome to get their education.” During the presentation, students were invited to donate money to Enelerai Primary School, the school PECI has been supporting in Kenya. Many also brought non-perishable donations for the Picton United Church County Food Bank.

Looking back in the

PRINCE EDWARD COUNTY

Picton Gazette 80 years ago — 1932

■ Picton man Harold Leavitt was convicted of attacking Marion Myers as she was walking home on Union Street Oct. 1. Leavitt was sentenced to six months in prison and 10 lashes, which were to be administered at the start of his sentence. Police testified Leavitt was intoxicated at the time of the incident. ■ Officials with the Royal Canadian Legion announced their intention to fight any efforts by society to have Remembrance Day reduced to just a formal silence of two minutes during the day, rather than a Canadian holiday. They noted it was especially important for youth to understand the sacrifices made by soldiers between 1914 and 1918. ■ A Bloomfield woman had a lucky find while working in her garden as she unearthed a Canadian coin from 1844.

50 years ago — 1962

■ Picton mayor H.J. McFarland proved himself among the best in the province at the International Plowing Match in Owen Sound, where he placed fourth in a plowing competition for mayors. Windsor mayor Mike Patrick placed first. ■ Seeing vandalism to the old log cabin on the site of the North Marysburgh fairgrounds, the Prince Edward Historical Society voted to form a committee to establish ownership of the building, then to work to preserve it and any remaining historical artifacts that might have been stored within the structure. ■ A 48-year-old Adolphustown man was fined $25 and charged court costs after being charged by the RCMP for being the lone occupant of a boat pulling a waterskier on Long Reach near Sophiasburgh.

30 years ago — 1982

■ A Milford man, Melvin Leon Mitchell, died while testing a homemade air compressor tank. The man’s wife found him in the garage where he had been performing the tests. The Industrial Health and Safety Branch had been called in to investigate the accident. ■ The Prince Edward County Vegetable Growers Association had a discussion at their annual meeting about who would pay for unharvested crops, processors who deem there is a surplus or the Ontario Crop Insurance Commission. There was some discussion around the growers altering their calendar and having a dropdead date when farmers aren’t tied to the processing contract and are able to sell their crops themselves. ■ Lake Ontario Cement continued to face the pressures of a difficult market as sales in the third quarter of 1982 were down 18 per cent from the previous year. Despite cost reductions, the company projected it likely wouldn’t turn a profit.

10 years ago — 2002

■ Ameliasburgh native Sharon Sills questioned a County bylaw allowing just two bags of curbside garbage to be put out at the curb. A caregiver for her elderly parents, Sills said she had a mess on her hands with adult diapers and felt if she was paying for bag tags and paying for taxes, she should be able to throw away all the garbage she had. ■ Councillor Robert Quaiff argued for a ban on the spreading of sewage sludge in Prince Edward County due to the risk it posed to public health and safety.

One does not fry eggs in these ‘pannes’

We call it “autumnal recrudescence”. That period in the fall when the temperatures, daylight hours, and even length of darkness approximate those of spring. Many animals, especially birds, experience a physiological reaction. Photoperiodism, if you will. Sandhill cranes will spend endless days facing each other and jumping high into the air as they would in the spring, to impress a mate. Many species will sing, and in some extreme cases, weak attempts at nest building may take place. Wildflowers sense seasonal changes too, bravely sending out flowers in October. Perhaps not in grand profusion as they would in spring, but admirable attempts at providing some additional colour to the backdrop of reddening trees. I have seen sprigs of lilacs in bloom on warm, November days in past years, and once, at Point Traverse, a wild apple tree there was covered in delicate blossoms…in late October! I was reminded of this as I leafed through the most recent issue of Between Friends, published by the Friends of Sandbanks. In it was an archived article that I had written back in my days as an interpretive naturalist at the park, in the late 1980s. The article was for a column called Sandscript that several staff members, including myself, contributed to during the operating season at the Park and which appeared

OUTDOOR RAMBLES TERRY SPRAGUE

regularly on the pages of the Picton Gazette. This one was about pannes – low, flat, wetland areas in the park that often host a riot of colour in August, once the water levels have dropped. The plants responsible are hardy species as they must contend with an alkaline environment, one in which water levels can fluctuate dramatically at the whims of rainfalls, drought and changing lake levels. If you happen to own a copy of Sandscapes, published early this summer by the Friends, the subject is covered there. We strolled through these unique wetlands along an established path just a few days ago, and continued deep into the dune system. Along the way, we found a few plants that had responded to recent rains and several balmy days that October so often offers. I brought up the subject of fringed gentian, and one pho-

tographer mentioned that he came across one farther back, and had photographed it. Others peeked bravely between browning sedges and sprigs of silverweed. First a single gerardia, then numerous isolated stems of Kalm’s lobelia. Most contained but one miniature flower, as though in defiance of November days around the corner. The most unexpected of all though, was a blossoming hoary puccoon, a wildflower we more closely associate with hot summer days in June. But, here it was, grabbing our attention on a small hummock of sand as we made our way to an enormous dune blowout that I always like taking people to on walks. As winds continue to work the sand, this blowout seems to be getting less dramatic than it was when I used to trail campers over there on my guided interpretive walks 25 years ago. I recall pure sand and towering mountains surrounding this cavernous valley which even kids on our hikes found difficult to ascend to the top. Today, it is becoming more vegetated and stable as the dunes around this blowout continually become moulded by the forces of nature. We found a couple examples of another type of dune. These are called parabolic dunes and their impressive horseshoe shapes form when strong winds push the unstable leading edge forwards, leaving long, trailing elon-

gated arms on either side. You can see them sometimes as miniature etches on the beach, but the ones we were staring at were several metres high. It can be a wild place out there in the pannes where these strange formations provide variety to an otherwise flat wetland. Years ago, I used to take campers to a wonderful example of a barchan dune – like a parabolic dune but reversed. With these, the wind blows the leading edge forwards, downwind, and the slipfaces are on the concave side of the dune. As barchans migrate, and they do move along from year to year, smaller ones behind catch up, bumping into the rear of the larger barchans, and appearing on the other side, almost like waves of light or sound that pass through each other. This was a Thanksgiving hike we were on, and the comment was made that the 15 or so of us could be viewed as rejects, with no special plans for a Thanksgiving Sunday. Actually, we felt quite special, being caught up in this extraordinary environment where the forces of nature are at work daily, changing the sandscape and creating new images.

Marysburgh Mummers’ Oliver! opens at Mt. Tabor Friday

The Marysburgh Mummers are ready to celebrate Charles Dickens’ 200th birthday in style this fall by staging a popular musical based on one of his beloved tales. Based on the book Oliver Twist, Oliver! is a two-act story of hope and despair, love and hate, and ignorance and want that was adapted into a musical in 1968. The Mummers’ version features

22 of the songs in the musical as well as one or two new scenes. The cast, which like most Mummers productions features actors of all ages, has been working for more than three months in auditions to prepare for the show and director Al Hazell said he’s been very impressed with the quality of performers who turned out to audition.

Hazell also noted the hard work of three members of the production team who have been going above and beyond to make the show a hit. Carol Rutledge has been busy serving as producer, music director, and in costumes. Anne Richie brought many scenes to life with her creative choreography, and Dan Thompson, a recent product of musical theatre

college, added blocking and staging to help with the show. Oliver! runs Oct 19, 20, 25, 26, and 27 at 3:30 p.m. and Oct. 21 and 28 at 2p.m. Tickets are available at Hicks General Store in Milford, Green Gables in Bloomfield, AV Frame and Photo in Picton, and Rossmore Stop for $15 each. -Staff

McGuinty likely fell on his own sword to advance agenda

JUST one year into his mandate as the leader of Ontario’s minority government, Premier Dalton McGuinty decided Monday that he was going to step down as the province’s top politician as soon as a new Liberal leader could be named. In some ways it is hard to believe that McGuinty would pick this time to walk away, given that he had just received overwhelming support from his party to continue his leadership and given he went to some great lengths to try to cement his majority, while possibly alienating some of his biggest backers among public sector labour organizations to make the case that he still deserves to continue on with his vision for the province. Through his nine years in power, McGuinty managed to stick to his convictions, bringing in programs he believed in like full-day Kindergarten, the LHINs, two major tax reforms in the HST and the health premium, and his green energy portfolio. He also brought in a number of protective laws that helped coin the nickname Premier Dad. Many of those decisions seemed to divide and alienate portions of the province, yet through it all, neither of the other parties could make a break into the red ridings enough to allow the Liberal machine to even waver in its confidence over the nine years they have held the balance of power at Queen’s Park. It would seem that McGuinty is giving up, given those circumstances, but in reality, his resignation might be one last-ditch effort to save the Ontario he wanted to build. With longtime supporters like teachers and doctors openly critical of his approach and the opposition continuously hammering away at his executive — and possibly his own office — on the matter of contempt with regard to the information about the politically motivated movement of two power plants, it was looking more and more like McGuinty would not be electable again and he didn’t want to risk hanging around too long and going the way of the Rae NDP or the Harris-Eves Tories, which were once the darlings of Ontario, but soon lost at the polls and spiralled downward. Both are still struggling to fight back to be able to challenge the strong position the Liberals built, even if economists had been warning they couldn’t keep on spending the money they did to bring in their programming. Perhaps McGuinty did fall on his sword for his own beliefs and maybe that will be enough for the Liberals to maintain power when it becomes time to go to the polls — and it seems he is also betting that despite their frustrations of his proroguing Queen’s Park, the Progressive Conservatives and NDP won’t work together to get an election call, either because they can’t get along or because he has enough control to allow a leadership campaign to build momentum before they have a chance to go to the electorate. As with many moves McGuinty has made before, his announcements Monday are moves that make sense to maintain power. Maybe this time, Ontario residents will see through it and demand changes.

Zombie walk and Halloween fun at the County libraries

This year’s Library Zombie Walk is on Tuesday, Oct. 23. Following a hugely successful first annual Zombie Walk last year, the library is presenting Zombie Walk 2012. The fun starts at 6:30 p.m. at Zombie Central, downstairs at the Picton branch library. Following the format of last year, the downstairs room in the library will become the hub of all things zombie where already costumed zombies will have a chance to mingle and others will have help from talented volunteers who will assist with make up and costumes, including bloody bandages for wrapping and torn zombie-like clothing. At the inaugural event last year, the library anticipated maybe 10 to 20 participants but all were pleasantly surprised when over 80 people, including parents and teens and even teachers, showed up for the fun. Note that this is not an event suitable for young children and those 12 and under must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to participate. The walk will begin at 8 p.m. with the route revealed at the event. For those looking for inspiration for their costume, the library suggests searching online for ideas. For the younger set, and less scary Halloween fun, the library is holding five

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

CCSAGE applauds council stand on White Pines project

CCSAGE applauds the position taken recently by Mayor Mertens and the members of council in registering a motion that the Prince Edward County council does not support the White Pines project proposed for South Marysburgh due to incomplete reports. This action is just the latest in a long series of actions taken by Council over the past few years. Despite the enactment of the Green Energy and Economy Act, which rendered local councils powerless against the will of the province for siting of renewable energy projects, our council has taken many actions to financially protect the County and to minimize the effects of industrial turbine projects on wildlife and residents when sited inappropriately. ■ Mayor Mertens wrote to the provincial government with a request for a moratorium on industrial wind projects until results of the proposed Health Canada study

on health effects are available. An earlier letter was sent by council to the federal and provincial agencies responsible for public health, energy creation, and energy management requesting research on the subject of health and industrial wind turbines. ■ Council responded to the submission of the Ostrander Point paperwork to the Ministry of Environment with a long list of comments for improvements on mitigation measures with regard to proposed setbacks relative to residences, areas of national and scientific interest (ANSI), important bird areas (IBAs), and threatened species. In general, all mitigation measures proposed were deemed to be “insufficient” to protect these features. ■ Council has expressed support for several of the organizations working to preserve the wildlife and the natural environment along the south shore. The concept

of a national park and marine conservation area being proposed by Point to Point PEC Foundation was endorsed by council via a letter of confirmation to Daryl Kramp, MP, and Todd Smith, MPP. ■ Support was provided to Prince Edward County Field Naturalists (PECFN) via correspondence to the Ministry of Natural Resources with regard to the habitat of species at risk at Ostrander Point. Other actions taken by Council include: ■ requiring wind energy developers to enter into an installation, removal, access, and security agreement with the municipality which includes a $200,000 security per turbine; ■ support for the residents of Maypul Lane in South Marysburgh by requesting Hydro One find an alternate route for transmission lines; ■ inviting provincial government authorities to present and answer questions on

renewable energy; ■ being very open to deputations to Council by the various groups who are protesting the industrialization of our natural heritage. CCSAGE believes that this Council is listening to concerns of the people of the County on the industrial wind turbine issue and has been acting to the best of its ability under the limitations imposed on it by the provincial government. CCSAGE commends Council for its considered approach to this issue and the attention it has paid to appropriate levels of due diligence before taking action. CCSAGE is a coalition of citizen’s groups and business owners in favour of safe and appropriate green energy. Much of the information included was gathered by members of CCSAGE and of CREW. Garth Manning Chair, CCSAGE

Council could likely operate with half the councillors

Humane Society to present Gospel fundraiser Saturday

Lorain Sine has always enjoyed spending time around animals, so it has become a bit of a tradition for the Wellington singer to offer her talents to help support the Loyalist Humane Society. In her latest benefit concert for the society, where she also volunteers some time to help care for the cats housed there, Sine will be joined by a talented cast of performers taking part in the Songs of Thanksgiving Gospel Show.

Among the artists slated to perform at the event are Sandra Sine, Jon Milford, Fraser Hardman, David Simmonds, Judy Fraser, Bud Gregory, Terry Spilchen, and a special guest, Tabby Johnson. The show will take place this Saturday night from 7-9 p.m. at the Picton United Church. Tickets are $15 and will be sold at the door. All proceeds go to the Loyalist Humane Society. -Staff

It is excellent news that, belatedly, council has decided to consider the size and composition of council. May I suggest that the first priority is to decide on the number of councilors that the county needs? Having made that decision the ward structure or the implementation of an at large system would follow rather than attempting to decide on size and composition at the same time increasing the complexity of the task. It is essential that the voters in the county have an understanding of the size and composition of other councils in Ontario. There are 444 councils in Ontario which are split into three types: single tier which

are responsibility for all activities in their area; lower tier where some activities are given to a higher level; upper tier which handle some matters on a regional basis. A superficial study of the various municipalities (excluding those in area code 807) and further excluding townships and other very small communities, with a population of less than ten thousand, reduces the number of single-tier entities to 27. The county has a population of 25,258 with 15 councilors which gives 2,350 citizens for each councilor. The largest is Ottawa, population 883,391 with 23 councilors which gives 38,430 citizens for each councilor. The three smallest are

Tamiskamin Shores, population 10,400 with six councilors and 1,621 citizens per councilor: Elliot Lake, population 11,723 with six councilors and 1,621 citizens per councilor: Brockville, population 21,570 with nine councillors and 2,430 citizens per councilor. Other than Ottawa,only one other entity has 15 councillors: Hamilton with a population of 519,840 for 34,663 citizens per councillor. Even London manages to get by with only 14 councillors with a population of 366395 and 26,171 citizens per councillor. Coming to our neighbouring municipalities, Belleville has a population of 49,454 with eight councillors for a ratio of 6,182 citizens

per councillor; Quinte West has a population 42,697 with 12 councillors for a ratio of 3,558 citizens per councillor. It should also be noted that most of the 27 councils have responsibility for transit, a police service and many have a local hydro company. Our council has no responsibility for any of these functions. Based on this limited study the county has either too few people or too many councillors! I do not know the right number of councillors for our population base but suggest that seven or eight are in the right ballpark. We certainly do not need 15! Peter Hilton Demorestville

The inherent risks of ‘The show must go on’ philosophy

The call came early Wednesday morning that my father in law had passed away and the funeral was in Kemptville on Saturday, the day of the premiere of my new show The County..Our Legends, Folklore and Music”. The music was co-written with Mark Despault. I called hm that morning and we knew we had to decide whether to pull the show or carry on with it. Despault said “Let’s do it”. The next call I made was to our sponsors Monika, Alexandre and Melanie Fida of The Hubb at Angeline’s. A sponsor certainly doesn’t expect to see a product they

endorse and invest in to be second rate. They gave their blessing to go ahead. That showed courage and faith. The most difficult part of the equation is the possibility of the veteran and highly professional cast will seem to look foolish and under rehearsed. Even when the audience is advised that the leading actor/musician is unavailable due to the death in the family, sometimes they just don’t get it. I received a very nasty email from one audience member saying the piece was “absolutely under rehearsed and looked like a first read through”…ya

think? The cast had to read all of my material off a script because there was no time for rehearsals. Many audience members really believed we were just doing a read through and we should have been “off book.” That really surprised me. Not one of the performers that night ever complained about the position they had been put in. The pressure and risk on them was huge but their dedication to the belief in our industry “the show must go on” carried them through and they gave the most heartfelt performance. The one performer I really

felt sorry for was Rev. David Colwell of South Bay Church. He is a classically trained pianist, not an actor. He was recruited to read large sections of script…..kidnapped is more like it! He did a great job and relieved a lot of pressure off the rest of the cast. I never realized the amount of bravery a cast has to under take when faced with the kind of situation Mark, Emily, Rick, Natasha and David faced that night. Hats off to everybody.

Farmers show off Gypsy Vanner horses Open house raises funds for Community Living

WHATTAM’S COMMUNITY CALENDAR

Chad Ibbotson

The Community Calendar is donated as a public service to our community by The Whattam Funeral Home, 33 Main St., West, Picton (613-476-2450)

Staff writer

After frequently fielding questions from onlookers curious about their peculiarlooking horses, the owners of OnceUponA Farm decided to open their gates to the public over the weekend and did so with a cause in mind. Julia O'Neill, husband Dan and daughter Jocelyn welcomed visitors to their farm Saturday to view their Gypsy Vanner horses. Julia said the family had been talking about having an “open house” type of event to showcase the rare horses as she said it was common to have cars stop and take pictures of the animals. The event also took in donations for Community Living Prince Edward's “Healthy Living Program.” “Because this is a rare breed — it's very unusual — people don't see them anywhere else,” O'Neill said. “A lot of people stop on the side of the road or people look at our website. I see the same people all the time are looking, people want to see the horses, they're curious.” O'Neill said even though people stop, they generally don't want to be a bother. “Normally if we see people pull up on the side of the road, if we're out here and we see them we're like come in,” she said. “Because they're new and we're passionate about the breed we want to share that.” The Gypsy Vanner breed is a new one to North America, O'Neill said. The first of the breed came to the United States in 1996. The O'Neill's own mare Nimue was the first of the breed in Canada.

SPACE IS AVAILABLE TO all non-profit groups or organizations that serve 'The County' ONLY. Calendar items can be faxed 476-3031, email whattamfh@sympatico.ca or placed in drop box at the side door of the Funeral Home by Saturday at noon.

“She just happens to have a maple leaf on her chest which is appropriate,” she said. “Accidental, but appropriate.” O'Neill said the breed is still rare in the United States and Canada. “Technically they're small draft horses. They're very heavy, they can pull a heavy caravan and that's what they were bred for,” she said. “They were truly bred by the Gypsy people to pull their heavy caravans, their living wagons.” She said the breed is generally black and white or brown and white. “They tended to breed coloured horses for two reasons. If you steal a plain brown horse you can hide it anywhere; put it in a field of brown horses and it blends in. Steal one of these horses and put it in with a bunch of other horses and it stands out,” she said. “Also during the world wars the armies would confiscate horses. They wanted black and brown, they didn't want these.” She said the open day was the family's way of inviting

people look at, and talk about, the horses. With that in mind O'Neill said if people were going to come, it also presented an opportunity to contribute to a cause. O'Neill said initially Community Living Prince Edward ran the healthy living program with grant money, but now are in need of funding to keep the program going. “I work at community living as well, so it was natural for me to (ask) 'are you interested in this opportunity?'” O'Neill said. O'Neill said there was no fundraising goal set for the day, saying that the event was a good volunteer opportunity. “There's a youth advocate group, they made chili, so it's a great opportunity for them to volunteer and contribute to a program they're going to benefit from as well,” she said. “We just really wanted people to come have some fun and, while they're here, chip in a bit.” O'Neill said all visitors and donations to the cause were appreciated. “Every little bit helps,” she said.

Finnegan Skypes from Brazil to share experiences with potential exchange students Picton Rotary seeks its next ambassador AdAm BrAmBurger

StAFF writEr

An old adage suggests the best way to know what another person is experiencing is to walk a mile in his or her shoes. When one is talking about international exchange students, however, sending youth for just a taste of being completely immersed in a foreign land isn’t exactly a practical solution. On Monday, however, PECI teachers and Picton Rotary Club members might have found the next best thing for their recruiting efforts. Over lunch hour, eight prospective exchange students met to use Skype web conferencing software to chat with Jeff Finnegan, who is

currently on exchange in Brazil. Finnegan told the prospective exchange students the first rule for going forward with an exchange is they have to look at it as an experience that will be different than any other. “If you’re going to do it, you just have to go with an open mind,” he said. “You can’t expect it to be like anything you’ve ever done before. If you’re comparing it to home, you’re not going to enjoy it.” Finnegan also said that getting homesick is a natural thing, but with time, it usually passes. “I’d be interested in talking to a person who doesn’t get homesick,” he said, adding exhaustion after his 10-hour flight didn’t really help matters initially. “I was exhausted thinking I don’t know what I’m doing here, but it already seems like home,” he said. “The more

time goes on, the less I miss home. I do my friends and my family, but never did I consider that I want to go back.” The toughest difference for Finnegan has been picking up Portuguese, which is a much less common language than French or Spanish. Initially, in the airport upon arrival, he had to use Google translate just to have a conversation about the basics of where he needed to be picked up. “Definitely it would be

helpful to learn a small amount of the language first like where the bathroom is, “hello,” “thank you, and “good-bye,” he said. That language barrier has been a bit tricky for Finnegan in his classes, but he said in many math classes he can follow with the numbers and he waits for English class where he is the star pupil. Outside school, which runs from 7-12:45 each day, Finnegan said he still struggles to have full conversations, but he has managed to bridge the gap through his love for soccer, the most popular sport in his new home. He plays with several different groups each week. “I’ll just play soccer with the guys and get to know them through the sport,” he said. “It’s like a universal language. Being involved in sports and other things has helped me.” Some of the other major adjustments Finnegan discussed with the Rotarians, teachers, and eight interested students were climate, food, and his host family.

Being fortunate enough to have an air conditioner and a swimming pool at his disposal, the heat hasn’t really affected Finnegan. He said the diet, too, has not been a major adjustment, though he’s noticed the locals almost always eat rice with their meals and they have a fondness for meats and barbecuing together. Right now, Finnegan is living with the first of three or four host families. He will also see some different changes ahead as his class graduates school in November and he may either return to the same school or move to a university preparation facility. Finnegan is also looking forward to a 31-day trip across northeastern Brazil with other exchange students in January. The information session was the first step in a process for the Rotarians to select their next exchange student. During conversation, the interested students also had a chance to ask Rotarians about the program.

Among the major concerns were cost and school credits. The club’s recruitment committee chair Rob Leek estimated $7,500 in costs to the student’s family as Rotary covers a student’s stay, food, and a spending allowance, while students are responsible for their travel costs , an emergency fund, and any extra trips and activities offered to them. As far as schooling, there is no guarantee that students can earn credits in Canada, though guidance counsellor Caryn Phoenix-Renz says the school still highly recommends the program. “It really is a life-changing experience for our kids that go,” she said. “Some do come back and do a final year. They come back with a greater sense of the wider world around them. They come back as young adults ready to find their way. They are definitely not the same young people who were in our school before they left.” Both Phoenix-Renz and Leek expressed satisfaction with the addition of the Skype hook-up to their information session. “It helps them get a feel for what he might be doing and the opportunities he's going to have, it was a great thing to set up,” said Phoenix-Renz. Added Leek: “ The obvious experience he is having is pretty exciting. It also gives a sense of the realities of the program — things like homesickness, not being able to make new friends and not being able to speak the language right away.,” he said. “The program is not for everybody. The student has to be someone who can embrace that. If they can stick it out, wow, this is the best thing I've ever done. “ Club members are accepting exchange applications from students who will be under 18 next September. A formal interview process will follow with students and their parents.

Accessible parking permits are for riders too

The Accessible Parking Permit (APP) is issued to individuals and entitles the vehicle in which it is displayed to be parked in a designated accessible parking space. This means that even a person who no longer drives can have one of these permits. The individual to whom the permit is issued must be in the vehicle and the permit must be visibly displayed on the dashboard or sun visor when it is parked in the designated accessible parking space. The permit holder may use the permit in any vehicle in which they are travelling. So, if your daughter or a volunteer driver takes you to the grocery store, you can put your APP on the visor and park in the spot close to the door. There is no fee for an APP. The Ontario Ministry of Transportation issues four types of permits, which are colour coded: a Permanent Permit (blue), a Temporary Permit (red), a Traveller Permit (purple) and Company Permits (green). Permanent and temporary permits are described below. See the website for information on traveller and company permits. To qualify for an APP, the individual must be certified by an APP program recognized health practitioner as having one or more of the following conditions: Cannot walk without assistance of another person or a brace, cane, crutch, a lower limb prosthetic device or similar assistive device or who requires the assistance of a wheelchair; suffers from lung disease to such an extent that forced expiratory volume in one second is less than one litre; portable oxygen is a medical necessity; cardiovascular disease impairment classified as Class III or Class IV to standards accepted by the American Heart Association or Class III or IV according to the Canadian Cardiovascular Standard; severely limited in the ability to walk due to an arthritic, neurological, musculoskeletal or orthopaedic condition; visual acuity is 20/200 or poorer in the better eye with or without corrective lenses or whose greatest diameter of the field of vision in both eyes is 20 degrees or less; condition(s) or functional impairment that severely limits his or her mobility. A licensed physician, chiropractor, registered nurse practitioner (extended class), physiotherapist or occupational therapist, chiropodist and podiatrist may certify the applicant's condition on the permit application. A permanent permit is valid for five years. If the condition necessitating an APP improves, or if anyone comes into the possession of a valid permit issued in the name of a deceased person, the permit must be returned to the Ministry. Temporary permits are issued when the disability is expected to last more than

two months to a maximum of 12 months but is not considered a permanent disability. This permit is not renewable. For example, if you have a knee replacement, you can get a temporary APP and use it during your recovery period. Misuse of the permit will result in fines ranging from $300 to $5,000 and revoked APP privileges. The Minister of Transportation may cancel or refuse to issue a replacement permit if it is misused. Misuse or abuse of a permit should be reported to the police. You can download and print the application for accessible parking permit from this web site www.mto.gov.on.ca or pick up an application at the driver and vehicle licence issuing ofice in Picton. Driver and vehicle licence issuing offices can issue an interim temporary permit on the spot when an APP application is submitted. This permit differs from the (red), temporary permit, as it is only valid for the brief period of up to two months. This official interim temporary permit, issued at a driver and vehicle licence issuing office, is provided as a customer service to facilitate mobility in advance of the permit placard being mailed to the applicant. Once the permit placard arrives in the mail the interim temporary permit is to be destroyed. The local Licence office is at 1 Pitt Street, side door of the courthouse, in Picton.

Smith plans to work in riding on constituents’ issues

MPP, from page 1

That file was also becoming increasingly heated as Smith and other opposition members were grilling the government with accusations of contempt of the legislature, charging the Liberals did not disclose all the information available to the house. Earlier Tuesday, Smith rose on a point of privilege where he argued the government, ranging from McGuinty to several of his senior ministers knowingly misled the legislature by not releasing all the documents involved in the decision to move the plants, including directives from the pre-

mier's office. "There is very clear evidence the government knew on Sept. 27 that all the documents had not been included in the original submission," Smith charged. "I am of the belief the government misled the house. The premier's chief of staff played a role in the cancellation of these plants and e-mails from him were not a part of the original submission." During question period Monday, the Liberals indicated there was no deliberate attempt to mislead. Smith denied the problem was bureaucratic, charging that it was indeed a trust issue.

"The house can simply no longer believe that Minister (Chris) Bentley, Minister (John) Milloy), or the premier are telling the truth when they speak to the legislature." Smith indicated the work of the committee investigating the contempt charges was effectively "on the back burner" now and he said the move might save some ministers' jobs, but he said the opposition parties have every intention of striking the committee once the legislature reopens.

refrain from testifying, while non-members are not, so there may be an opportunity to hear McGuinty's testimony in the future. When asked about whether his Progressive Conservative party might be able to work with the New Democratic Party once the prorogation is lifted, Smith said he didn't see that as he believes the parties are "not on the same wavelength" when it comes to fiscal management. Smith also said he didn't see the any possibility of the two parties working together to try to trigger a snap election any time soon. In the meantime, Smith said he expects he will be spending more time in the riding, helping people with some of their day-to-day issues and applications for provincial services. He stressed that government ministries will still operate and continue to help residents with services like birth certificates, drivers' licences, social assistance, and health care and education. "My offices will still be helping people with their daily concerns. I'm looking forward to being around more, but at the same time there are huge issues that are not being dealt with because of McGuinty's decision to prorogue." The premier said he made the decision to prorogue because he felt the opposition's political games were holding the government back from their plan to impose a two-year wage freeze for government workers as law. He said the proroguing would give the government a chance to negotiate with public labour organizations without any distractions. "I've asked the Lieutenant Governor to prorogue the legislature to allow those discussions with our labour partners and the opposition to occur in an atmosphere that is free of the heightened rancour of politics in the legislature," he said. "And when the legislature returns, we will either have negotiated agreements in hand or a firm sense of what the opposition will support." Smith said he had heard rumours of the prorogation tactic — one he called a tool in the premier's legislative toolbox — but admitted the dual announcement including McGuinty's resignation was "a shocker to a certain extent." McGuinty indicated he was going to step down after 16 years as party leader and nine as premier to spark renewal in his party. "It’s time for the next Liberal premier, it’s time for the next set of Liberal ideas to guide our province forward," he said. Smith noted McGuinty received 86 per cent support from his party at a convention in Ottawa two weeks ago and had been taking about a trade mission to China he was about to go on. "The way he was talking, it caught a lot of people here by surprise," Smith said. Progressive Conservative leader Tim Hudak wrote to McGuinty Tuesday and urged him to reconvene the legislature, but as of now, Smith sees little hope that will happen. I doubt he changes his mind," he said.

Home features that are disappearing

There is no denying the profound impact that the recession has had on the real estate industry. For the last several years, the real estate market went from booming to one characterized by homes sitting on the market for months on end. New home sales also have been conservative, and builders are cutting back on some offerings that were once commonplace. The National Association for Realtors says that, despite floundering sales, there are fewer foreclosed homes available now than in recent years. Distressed homes -foreclosures and short sales sold at deep discounts -- accounted for 25 percent of homes sales in May of 2012. That figure is down from 28 percent in April and 31 percent in May of 2011. While home sales have increased, money is still tight in the building industry and among home buyers. As such, instead of over-

the-top features in homes that were once becoming the norm, builders are now focusing on more valueconscious designs and offerings. The list of add-ons also has been reduced. So what can buyers expect to live without when buying a newly constructed home? Here are a few of the common features that are falling by the wayside. * Sunrooms: Although the "bring-the-outside-in" movement was once strong, builders are now focusing on home features that immediately add value and attract the eye of buyers. Therefore, they're putting their resources into linen closets and laundry rooms while de-emphasizing sunrooms. * Extended ceiling heights: It can take a lot of energy to heat rooms with 15-foot ceilings. As a result, grandiose family rooms and two-story foyers are less attractive to buyers focused on saving

money. Homeowners want spaces that are easier to heat and cool. * Luxury bathrooms: Many private residence luxury bathrooms rival those found at popular 4-star hotels. But luxury bathrooms are being phased out in favor of less expensive, more practical options. * Outdoor kitchens: Although entertaining at home is one way to keep budgets in check, some homeowners have realized they don't need a complete backyard kitchen with a pizza oven and brick fireplace in order to host guests. According to a survey from the National Association of Home Builders, outdoor kitchens are the second least-likely feature to be included in homes built in 2012. * Media rooms: Individuals certainly love their gadgets, but many of these gadgets have become smaller and more portable. That reduces the need for giant home theaters and gaming spaces.

Tall ceilings in family rooms are being eschewed in favor of smaller, more intimate spaces.

While certain features are disappearing, there are others that are growing more and more popular. Dual sinks in kitchens, walk-in closets, extra storage areas, and hidden charging stations for devices are likely to show up more and more in new home designs.

The design of new homes is changing to be more budgetfriendly and also represent the changing priorities of home buyers. As a result, today's newly designed homes will likely look much different from homes built just a few years ago.

PECI now 6-1-0

Soccer seniors suffer loss JAson pArks

Staff writer

A dose of humility could just be what the doctor has ordered for the PECI Senior Soccer Panthers. With their undefeated streak on the line at home Tuesday evening, the East Northumberland Secondary School Blue Dragons did what no team in the Bay of Quinte Athletic Conference has been able to do — beat the PECI Panthers. The Blue Dragons scored early, added another goal later in the second half and hung on to drop the Panthers 2-0. The home loss moves PECI to 6-1-0 this season. A win last night after presstime against the Trenton Tigers would clinch first place for PECI as the Bay of Quinte playoffs start next week. Despite the loss, PECI coach Paul Pickard was happy with the Panthers’ efforts Tuesday. “The seniors continue to dominate their competition and control most of the play. Our strong goaltending and the solid defensive core provides excellent inspiration for the rest of the team I think will respond well to the pressure,” Pickard said. In action last week, PECI added a pair of wins to their seasonal total, blanking Bayside 2-0 Oct.11 after shading St. Paul 3-2 Oct. 10. Shayne Inch and Weston Ferguson handled the scoring against the Red Devils while Dallas Hunter, with two, and Corey Prince brought down the Falcons. In junior play, the Panthers struggles continued as they dropped all three games. Mason Norlock was the lone bright spot, scoring PECI's lone goal in a 7-1 loss to the Blue Dragons Tuesday night, although Pickard liked the second half effort of Graysen St. Pierre. On Oct. 11, Bayside slipped past the Cats 3-2. Lucas Clarke and Braden Bennett responded for PECI and Ben Wilson had a great second half but it wasn't enough to get past Bayside. A night earlier, it was the St. Paul's Falcons shading PECI 2-1. Blaine Swackhammer had the PECI goal. “The juniors have struggled with team play and finishing the play,” Pickard said. “We have shown periods of brilliant ball control and intensity, however, we must learn to communicate with each other and focus on our positions.”

Dukes sweep full six points on Showcase weekend Wins on three straight days give Wellington momentum JAson pArks

Staff writer

With one three-game gauntlet out of the way and another in their sights, the Wellington Dukes will take pause this week and reflect in the shiny glow that is a successful sixpoint weekend. Wellington (7-6-0) took down Kingston, Pickering and Aurora in order to climb above the .500 mark for the first time this month. It was a very solid 180 minute stretch of hockey for the local Junior A club that seemed to be keyed by a dramatic-come-from-behind victory over Kingston on Friday at the Essroc Arena. The club then rode the momentum of their 5-4 home win on Friday to a pair of road wins, a 4-1 victory on Saturday night against the Pickering Panthers and a 3-2 shootout victory over the Aurora Tigers at the annual Governor’s Showcase in Cobourg on Sunday afternoon. Down 4-1 with under a minute to play in the second period of Friday night's game, the prospects of a six point weekend seemed completely out of range for Wellington. But a last second buzzer beating goal by Abbott Girduckis carved the Voyageur lead in half and set the stage for one of the more dramatic comebacks Dukes fans have seen in recent years. “Not to overplay it, but the goal at the end of the second period really gave us the confidence we needed going into the third period,”

Three-for-Three Wellington Dukes goaltender Matt Larose embraces forward Erick Delaurentis after Delaurentis’ game winning goal in the third round of the shootout against the Aurora Tigers Sunday. Larose stopped all three Tigers shooters. (OJHL Images)

Wellington Dukes Coach and General Manager Marty Abrams said. Wellington waited until the late stages of the third before completing the comeback bid and killed off three straight third period penalties prior to doing so. While on the power play, Joe McKeown tapped in a beautiful Brian Bunnett feed at 15:57 to make it 4-3 Vees.

In his next shift, Bunnett himself notched the game tying goal, banging home his first OJHL goal in over a year to tie it a 4-4 and setting the stage for Erick Delaurentis' game winner at 18:56. For the second time at home this season, Wellington had comeback from three goals down to in a hockey game, although this latest come-from-behind effort was

far more dramatic than the 83 win over the Stoufville Spirit 14 days prior. “It was similar to the game against Stouffville in that we weren't getting rewarded but we stuck with the game plan and one turned into two and that turned into three,” Abrams explained. In terms of Bunnett, the 19-year-old centreman is

making great strides to resurrect a hockey career that was derailed by a June, 2011 car accident that broke his leg. Bunnett, a key player in Wellington's march to the 2011 Royal Bank Cup Championships, is progressing by playing with both Picton and Wellington during his rehab. “He's made some unbelievable strides since last February, and we've been trying to bring him along slowly, making sure his body can take all the hockey we are throwing at him,” Abrams said. “In the New Year, I'm hoping he can get back into our lineup but he's been great for us so far.” After the comeback Wellington players celebrated their win but were also reminded of the road ahead. “The team was in a great mood and relieved they were seeing some results but we didn't have a long time to celebrate,” Abrams added. On the road under 24 hours later, Wellington met up with the Panthers and for the second straight night, Nanimo, B.C. native Matt Larose tended the twine tent for Wellington. After surrendering a couple goals that could have been described as soft a night earlier, Larose was stellar for the locals, stopping 41 Panther shots in picking up his second win of the season. Abrams said the storyline of Saturday's win wasn't complicated. “It was simple,” Abrams said. “Our goaltender won us that game, he delivered. It was also Jan Kaminsky's best game as Duke ever.”

Panthers earn silver medal at Trinity College tournament

PECI seniors see potential facing and defeating top calibre teams from across the province AdAm BrAmBurger

Staff writer

It didn’t seem like a silver lining for the PECI Senior Basketball Panthers to come in second in tournament play at Trinity College in Port Hope last weekend. Playing the defending OFSAA ‘A’ bronze medalists from Rideau in the final, the Panthers had a tough shooting game and fell 39-27. “The girls felt very dejected to come so close to a tournament championship and watch it slip away, but they should feel proud of the step forward they took and to do it shorthanded for the entire weekend speaks volumes to their potential,” said coach Rob Garden.

COuRtneY WilsOn

Though the Panthers were able to break the Lions’ zone defence, they couldn’t get the ball to fall, hitting just one of 14 three-point tries, 11/40 from the field and just 25 per cent on free throws. “Sometimes you have one of those games where shots don’t fall and there is nothing you can do about that,

but we missed at least five blatantly wide open layoffs off of turnovers we caused with defence,” said Garden. “Make those layups and you do the math...” The Panthers opened the tournament by squeaking out a nail-biting 40-38 win over Ashbury College from Ottawa. PECI poured on the pressure early to build an 11point lead after four minutes, but could not sustain it as Ashbury narrowed the deficit to four points by half. Down one point going into the final minute, Garden called a timeout and the girls executed their motion offence to set Courtney Wilson up for a clutch three-pointer. The Panthers were able to weather the storm defen-

sively boxing out Ashbury players as Sam Kuipers and Brittany Snider ripped the rebound to seal the win. Wilson, fresh off a player -of-the-game effort in the Bay of Quinte all-star game, had 22 of 40 points, while Erin O’Brien added eight. In the second game against the St. Marcellinus Spirit from Missisauga, the Panthers went into the final quarter tied at 21. PECI changed its game plan and took over with a 14-0 run to win 35-21. “I told the girls it was time to jump on the gas pedal and go at them,” said Garden. “We got very aggressive on the defensive end of the court, pushed the ball up, and attacked the basket.”

The Panthers got their strength from the front court as Wilson and Alyssa VanRossum combined for 24 of the Panthers’ points. Player of the game awards in the tournament went to Wilson against Ashbury for her scoring, VanRossum against St. Marcellinus for her defence, and Kuipers against Rideau for shutting down the Lions’ top scorer in the second half. Two junior players, Danielle Willis and Hannah Smith also saw some court time on the weekend. The Panthers have another shot at Rideau this weekend as they play to tip off the Nicholson tournament in Belleville at 6:30 p.m. Friday.

The Picton Gazette THURSDAY, OCTOBER 18, 2012

Pirates beat Rebels before allowing unbeaten streak to fall in shootout loss to Panthers

lead with a quick strike on the power play to start the second. Kenny Murduff tallied with the extra man with Jack Davison getting the lone assist 1:38 into the second stanza. Again Campbellford clawed its way even two minutes later. With Picton's Devin McCann in the box for slashing Chris Klompmaker sent the puck past goaltender Adam Wood. Hunter Fargey got the helper. With less than two minutes remaining in the period Brad Jacklin cruised in from the point and put the Pirates in the lead again.

“Brad Jacklin's goal was big. We've been talking to him about sneaking in as a fourth wave on the offence. He scored his first junior goal,” Woodward said. This time the Pirates didn't give Campbellford a chance to strike. Just 37 seconds later Cole Bolton took a nice feed from McGuire and made no mistake on a breakaway opportunity to put the Pirates up 4–2. “Those were two big goals,” he said. “The team got a lot of energy from it and we were able to take it into the third and seal the win.”

Fargey closed the gap two minutes into the third and again in the final minute of the period, but goals from Murduff and Nolan Van Vlack kept the Rebels at bay. Friday's game marked second time the Panthers and Pirates have gone to the shootout to decide the game. In their last meeting the Pirates prevailed by a 2–1 score after a shootout, with Woodward calling out the team for their play to start the game. He said it was the opposite on Friday. “We played well. We were shorthanded with a few injuries and a few guys missing we were down to nine forwards pretty quick into the game. Everybody had an opportunity to play some big minutes,” he said. “Andrew Pearson was very good in net, we generate a lot of opportunities, a lot of Grade A scoring chances and weren't able to finish. Unlike the week before I thought the guys did have their legs, they were working hard.” Woodward said Port Hope goaltender Justin Urquhart played well and made sure the Pirates didn't capitalize on a lot of chances. Port Hope kicked off the

ner. “I thought we were better on Sunday then we were on Saturday night and with the showcase, some players have extra motivation” Abrams said. “It was a solid game by both teams and Larose was great in shootout.” Over 100 NCAA and NHL scouts attended the event which saw every OJHL team take to the ice. After Wellington's win, a good number of scouts met up with Wellington players to provide feedback and information. Wellington takes on the

disappointing Cobourg Cougars at home on Friday night before meeting up with Aurora yet again on Saturday night and Stouffville on Sunday. Abrams said don't read too much into Cobourg's poor record thus far this season as the club was tabbed by many (including this newspaper) to be the

top team in the East Division. “Cobourg isn't going to be defeated for too long, they have too many good players and that program is going to turn around,” Abrams said. ‘Round the 'Roc: After LaRose played all three games this weekend, Hayden Lavigne will get a start

The unbeaten streak is broken. The Picton Pirates went 6–0 to start the season before falling to the Port Hope Panthers 2–1 in an eight-round shootout on Friday. While suffering their first loss the Pirates still managed to get three out of four available points this week, winning 6–4 over Campbellford at home on Thursday before Friday's shootout loss on the road. Thursday marked the club's first meeting with the Campbellford Rebels this season. Pirates coach and general manager Ryan Woodward said the Rebels are a strong club, but the Pirates met the challenge. “(Campbellford) is a good hockey club. They have some guys that can put the puck in the net and they have some guys that can burn you very quickly, so you have to respect that and you have to be willing to engage and play hard,” he said. “The guys did a good job of that on Thursday.” Woodward said the

Pirates' speed matches up well against the Rebels' size. “The game was played along the wall and in the corners and I thought we did a good job there,” he said. “They sometimes try to play a run and gun style. It can create some chances at both ends and we did a good job of trying to avoid it and settle in to our own style of hockey.” Riley McGuire started things off for the Pirates, scoring 11 minutes into the opening frame, but veteran Seamus McDougall responded for the Rebels three minutes later as the teams played an even game for the remainder of the first. “We had a lot of really great opportunities throughout the game. Their goaltender played fantastic. We had opportunities to open the scoring up pretty early in the first period,” Woodward said. “We told the guys before the game we need everybody involved, we need everybody to step up and contribute and we did a pretty good job of that.” The Pirates again took the

scoring with Dan Lagrois scoring halfway through the first period. The Panthers out-shot Picton 17–9 in the first, but the shots were even throughout the last 40 minutes. The goal remained the only one of the game until Bolton found the back of the net on the power play after a give and go play with Mitchell Smith 10:40 into the final frame. The Pirates got the majority of chances in the overtime, but couldn't get one past Urquhart. Ryan Sizer and Brad Heykoop both scored for their teams in the first round of the shootout, but Ryan Wilkinson sealed the deal for Port Hope in the eighth round. The Pirates acquired Bolton on Oct. 10 from the Wellington Dukes. “(Bolton) has been strong in both games for us. He fits right into our dressing room and is going to be an impact player on the ice,” Woodward said. The Pirates face the Napanee Raiders tonight at 7:30 in Picton before taking on the Rebels in Campbellford at 7:30 p.m. on Friday.

Wellington not about to take opponents lightly when Cobourg visits this Friday night

DUKES, from page 24

Kaminsky factored in on all four Wellington markers and was, along with Larose and defencemen Kyle Paat and Josh Finklestein, key in a big penalty kill in the late stages of the second period. With the Dukes ahead 21, Wellington was tasked with killing off a full two minute, five-on-three power-play advantage for Pickering. Larose and company stood tall as the Panthers desperately tried to even the score and sent a barrage of shots towards the Wellington net. Abrams called the stand a key turning point in the game and said the club's captain led the way. “He was unbelievable, Jan took the team on his shoulders. He tremendous leadership skills in that game,” Abrams said. After scoring the games first goal in the opening period and setting up Paat's power-play blast in the second, Kaminsky had a hand in Craig Campbell's insurance marker at the midway point of the third. Finally, in the late going and the Panthers having lifted Spencer Bacon for an extra attacker, who else but Kaminsky would feed Erick Delaurentis for an empty netter with nine seconds left on the clock? Nobody else. On Sunday, Wellington wrapped up their weekend with a bow, besting the Tigers in a 3-2 shootout. Wellington opened the scoring in the first when Campbell and Kaminsky combined on a pretty passing play close to the Tiger net. Campbell rifled home his fifth of the season at 13:33. While on the same shift just over a minute later, Campbell potted his second of the contest, blowing past a falling Tiger defender and beating Aurora netminder Brett Sinclair to make it 2-0 Wellington. Aurora's Dylan Sikura responded with a pair of

his own, one at the close of the second period and another early in the third but both squads were able to lock the game down through to the end of overtime. In the shootout session, Sinclair and Larose went save for save through the first two shooters. In the final round, Larose stymied the always crafty Daniel Clairmount. With the game on his stick, Delaurentis shot for Wellington in round three and snapped a low wrist shot past an overmatched Sinclair for the game win-

MEMORIAMS

CARROLL- Steven Brother Always Remembering From Siser Susie

FREDERICK GEORGE CLARK May 1, 1936 October 21, 2011 It’s been a year since you left us and we all miss you. God knew that he was suffering That the hills were hard to climb, So he closed his weary eyelids And whispered “Peace be thine.” Away in the beautiful hills of God, By the valley of rest so fair, Some day, we know not when, We will meet our loved one there. With all of our love, Wife Patsy, children David, Cheryl and Larry, and grandchildren Erik and Jason

KEWLEY- In loving memory of a dear grandson and nephew, Jamie Kewley, who passed away October 19, 1997. A daily thought, a silent tear, A secret wish that you were here, And when old times we do recall, That's when we miss you most of all. Always loved and remembered by Grandma and Grandpa Struthers, Steve and Tracy. LAMMES- In loving memory of Marg. A dear mother who passed away October 15, 2004. Gone are the days we used too share But in our hearts you are always there The gates of memory will never close, We miss you more than anyone knows, With tender love and deep regret We who love you will never forget. Love John and Angela.

Jamie Kewley

In loving memory of a dear son, brother, uncle and friend. April 29th, 1973 - October 19th, 1997

We thought of you today And the day before that too. We think of you in silence And often speak your name, All we have left are memories and pictures in a frame. Your special smile and special face In our hearts, safe in a special place. Your memories are ours to keep Which we will never part, No matter where we go No matter where we are You are always in our hearts, We love and miss you every year that we are apart. Always loved and never forgotten Mom, Dad, Mike, Kristine, Troy and Ryan

LAMBERT, Harry

October 9, 2011 We sat beside your bedside Our hearts were crushed and sore, We did our best to the end Till we could do no more. In tears we watched you sinking, We watched you fade away; And though our hearts were breaking, We knew you could not stay. You left behind some aching hearts That loved you most sincere, We never shall and never will Forget you husband, father, grandfather dear. With Love, Mary, Harold, Carol, Ann Marie, Russell, Jordan, Trevor, Dylan

McCONNELL- Wendy. October 16, 2011. A year has passed since you've been gone But in our hearts you still live on. Our family chain is broken and nothing is the same, We mention your name and speak of you often God bless you Wendy, You will never be forgotten. Missed by father, brothers and sisters.

McCONNELL. In loving memory of a dear mother and grandmother, Wendy, who passed away October 16, 2011. Your mother is always with you, She's the whisper of the leaves As you walk down the street, She's the smell of bleach in your freshly laundered socks. She's the cool hand on your brow when you're not well. Your mother lives inside your laughter, she's crystallized in every tear drop She's the place you came from Your first home, she's the map you follow with every step that you take. She's your first love and your first heart break and nothing on earth can separate you Not time, not space... Not even death... Will ever separate you from your mother.. You carry her inside of you. Love from your children, Emily, Kalen and Devon. ROBINSON, Arlene. In loving memory of our dear Mother, who left us October 20th, 1997. We have only a memory, dear mother We will cherish our whole life through, But the love will last forever As we treasure the memory of you. Always loved and remembered by Allen and Lisa.

Sadly missed and always remembered, daughter Lisa, son-in-law Paul, and grandchildren Tyler, Paul &â&#x20AC;&#x2C6;Kendra.

Two bright eyes, a tender smile, A loving heart that knew no guile, Deep trust in God that was so right, His joy to make some other bright, If sick or suffering one he knew, Some gentle act of love heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d do. No thought of self, but of the other, I know He said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;well done, dear Fatherâ&#x20AC;?. Love you Dad, Marilyn & Dianne.

Putting your garden to bed at the end of the season

We often get asked about what is necessary to put your garden to bed. The simple answer is that you don’t have to do much at all. However, remember that anything you choose not to do in the fall you will likely be doing in the spring when you might have other things more interesting to do. Cutting perennials down is one chore that I prefer to do in the fall. I always cut down the peonies and dispose of the foliage in a plastic bag for the curb or put them in the burn pile because most of the time, I end up with powdery mildew on my peonies by this time of year. If you have time for only one task, I recommend taking down your peonies as the foliage will wilt to the ground and set up conditions for fungal growth. I sometimes leave Rudbeckia and Echinacea plants standing during the winter because the seed heads feed birds and they are interesting in the snowscape. This year I will be cutting all of them down because the drought literally fried most of them. In fact, most of them were cut down a month or so ago. Take out

ASK A  MASTER  GARDENER

KATHY MACPHERSON

weeds or grass in your garden that is likely to go to seed. If you don’t have time to dig them out, cut the seed heads off and discard them in the trash, not the compost. Vegetable gardens need to be cleaned up now. Remove all plants that are no longer producing. Clean up all litter in the garden to prevent diseases from returning next year. Compost healthy tissue and bag or burn diseased tissue. I wait for a killing frost to clean up my herb garden as I find the herbs to be very hearty and

COMPLETE DENTURE SERVICE

I use them until they are completely gone. Of course, sage, thyme and tarragon can be left all winter and used when you can find them through the snow. After the first killing frost, cut back any long rose canes to avoid rocking in the winter when the ground is frozen. Add mulch around perennials if you have not already done so this summer. If you have compost, spread it on the garden and carefully dig it in or just let it stay on top and the worms will do the job for you over the winter. Gather up excess leaves from the lawn, run over them with the lawnmower and use them as protection around lavender and roses. Don’t use black walnut leaves as mulch as they are toxic. If you haven’t fertilized the grass yet, do so now. Use a low nitrogen fertilizer. You will appreciate having clean tools in the spring. Now is the time to get them in shape. Place a bag of play sand in a bucket mixed with

some oil. Wash the excess dirt off of your tools and dip them in the oily sand. Wipe them clean and store them in a dry space. It’s a good idea to get tools sharpened this time of year so that when you need them in the spring you won’t have to take them for sharpening then. If you are handy and have the right sharpening tools you can do it yourself. Otherwise, most hardware stores will have a sharpening service in house or let you know who can perform the task for you. If you have a lot of perennials to cut back, try using your weed eater. I prevail on my dear husband to crank up his weed eater and while I hold up the plants he cuts them off. It’s done in a second and I have all the plant in my arms to dump into the garden tractor wagon and haul away. It turns a big chore into a very small task. If you have a gardening question, send it to askamastergardener@xplornet. com.

The Picton Gazette THURSDAY, OCTOBER 18, 2012

Growers turn to other fruit, vegetables to participate

Reid said he would spend full days in the field pruning vines and trimming weeds, often getting up at about 9 a.m. and coming close to missing his dinner call. "I had a great summer, it was a lot of hours spent out there," he said. Reid said he didn't really have many secrets, he used cow manure and organic seaweed to give his pumpkin nutrients and he even tried Bryson's suggestion of maple syrup, which he indicated didn't hurt. He credited Vincent for telling him when to fertilize. Perhaps most important, Reid had a river running through his property and he was able to keep his pumpkin irrigated by putting about 400 gallons of water on his patch every second and third day, spread out over the four plants he left in the ground. He indicated he was surprised his pumpkin won top honours. "I didn't expect it to go 1,100, the last taping it was taped at 1,085. I was thinking if it was not thick, it would not go over (1,100). If the walls are thick, it would," he said, adding he'd try to best his mark next year. "It's a crapshoot they say. I was lucky this year." When Vincent, the event chair, saw his own pumpkin weighed, he started doing a little dance as he thought he might just be able to hold the title. Though disappointed he didn't place first, Vincent was upbeat at the thought he'd been bested by a rookie this time around. "It was really neat to have a first-year grower bring out our winner, that's really exciting, " Vincent said. "It just shows the way growers talk and share information, it shows anybody can get involved and have a good year. There are no secrets really, or not very many." The organizer added he was still impressed with the turnout in what he considered one of the toughest years in recent memory for growers coming to the Wellington weigh off. "A lot of growers lost a lot of pumpkins. We have about a half-dozen growers who normally bring stuff here that came to participate, but didn't bring a big pumpkin because they didn't have any left — it's a love-hate relationship, they split and they go down." Many growers remained dedicated to the event. Bryson drove from Ormstown, Quebec with just an exhibition field pumpkin. Past champion Harley Sproule came five hours without any produce. Others resorted to some of the other categories this time around. "We're getting a lot more in the minor categories now, it's just something else to grow," Vincent said of competitions for watermelons, long gourds, cabbages, field pumpkins, tomatoes, and sunflower. A group of growers that still seemed to bring a bumper crop through the parade route and into the weighing stations by C.M.L. Snider School was Picton's Langridge family. Shannon Langridge won the giant squash competition with an entry tipping the scales at 861 lb, placed first in the sunflower competition, and placed fourth in the pumpkin contest with a 1,031.5 lb entry. Her mom Annette, sister Sarah, and father Dan also placed in the top five among squash growers. Members of the family

JOHN VINCENT

were also in third through sixth place in the field pumpkin event, and Sarah claimed the Harold Dill Award for the most beautiful pumpkin in colour and shape over 600 lb. Dan won that award last year. Shannon said special precautions during the drought also helped with their entries. "We had to irrigate and we were fortunate to have a pond we were able to irrigate off of. Every five days we were irrigating an inch of water onto the patch," she said, adding they also made sure to create shade houses to keep the sun off the pumpkins to avoid sunburns. Regular pruning and tilling was also a must. Shannon indicated the family isn't afraid to try things to contribute to its success. "We're kind of known as the experimental patch. This year, we planted 42 seeds in the beginning. I believe 39 ended up in the ground and overall, we had around 37 pumpkins that did well. We lost about 12 of them," she said. "Early on, we focused on whichever ones were growing the most in inches and putting on the most pounds, we started babying them and did different things to help them get bigger." Langridge said though there is friendly competition between family members, the hobby also brings them together. "It's a lot of fun. It allows us to spend a lot of time in the field together planting and playing with pumpkins." Langridge added that she, too, was impressed by the first-year growers this year. "It was awesome to see a lot of the first year growers. My first year (entry) was 387 lb. To see a few of them around 900 and above for the first year is awesome. I'm very happy for them." The top finishers of this year's competition, in pounds, are as follows... ■ Giant pumpkin - 1. Jim Reid (1,148), 2. John Vincent (1,133), 3. Mike Rusenstrom (1,037.5), 4.

Councillors seek advice from staff on what to look for when supporting FIT projects Chad Ibbotson

StaFF writer

Following deputations from solar industry experts and a long discussion, councillors voted to send the issue of a generic council support motion for green energy projects back to staff to clarify project types and categories. Committee of the whole voted to refer the issue to staff

and have staff to separate the various types of green energy projects as well as split those types into different sizes and bring a list of prerequisites that councillors can choose to apply to different types and sizes of projects. A council support resolution is needed to secure two points under the new feed-in tariff (FIT) regulations where projects with more points have a better shot at receiving

a FIT contract. While there was some discussion about which prerequisites would be imposed on smaller FIT projects, councillors ultimately decided that more clarity was needed before discussing the main issue. Councillor Terry Shortt originally called for an expert to explain different classes of green energy projects. Following deputations from Cleave Energy Inc. executive vice president Robert Christie as well as solar developer Bob Willes, Shortt said the biggest concern shouldn't be how the green projects work, but how they are going to impact the community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Basically, the way they

impact the community is, number one, visually and the impact it has on real estate value,â&#x20AC;? he said. Shortt said after hearing the deputations he may consider a generic council support motion for roof-mounted solar projects, but said ground-mounted solar systems can be very obtrusive. Shortt said it's critical that council's concerns about such green projects are heard before developers are awarded points. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dealing with it up front before we give the two points is important because if we give them two points â&#x20AC;&#x201D; yes they have to come back to us â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but they're going to put a lot of work and time, effort

and spend money on that development,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If they come back to us after we give them the two points and we find out at that point it's not community acceptable, we basically cost these people a lot of time and money simply by saying here's your two points.â&#x20AC;? He said council has to take ground-mounted solar systems much more seriously. Councillor Bev Campbell said her major concerns with accepting a generic support motion for green energy projects at that point were that the projects didn't appear to be defined within the motion as it appeared on last week's committee-of-the-whole agenda, and some of the pre-

requisites listed didn't apply to all projects. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The problem is they were developed with large wind turbine developments in mind and some of those prerequisites â&#x20AC;Ś are just not appropriate for the smaller type projects and may not be appropriate for solar or some categories of solar,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We've got some more work that needs to be done on this and we need to reconcile the project listings and terminology. We need to look at that list of prerequisites as it relates to each of the categories and maybe pick and choose a little bit with the prerequisites for the categories.â&#x20AC;? The referral did not include a timeline to respond.

County to save $1.5 million a year on staffing

Chad Ibbotson

Staff writer

The municipality has finalized its new corporate structure. It was announced on the County web site last week that the municipality had finalized the new corporate structure as presented to council and staff this week as Phase 3 of the corporate realignment begins. The release from the municipality says Phase 3 of the realignment process will see a net reduction of seven municipal positions with 10 positions being eliminated while three new positions will be created. Phase 3 staffing changes combined with those in the first and second phases will result in a reduction in employment costs of close to $1.5 million each year. Through the first three phases a total of 44 positions will be eliminated with 29 new positions being created for a net reduction of 15 staff positions. Among the eliminated positions are the provincial offences officer, police services board administrative assistant and several positions in the recreation, parks and culture department. Newly created positions include a budget and financial analyst and two foremen for the municipality's community centres. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The County hopes to use a number of current vacancies to offset displaced personnel, reducing job losses while maintaining financial benefits,â&#x20AC;? the release says. Mayor Peter Mertens reiterated that the changes will improve efficiency and effec-

tiveness within the corporation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new corporate structure will facilitate effective operations and maximize employee skills and abilities while maintaining customer service excellence as a primary focus,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These staffing changes demonstrate one more step that will help us develop a sustainable municipality and ensure weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re delivering services effectively and efficiently.â&#x20AC;? The release says the new corporate structure is being shaped to get the most of county employees skills and abilities. It says the new structure will enable more decisions to be made at all staff levels which will improve â&#x20AC;&#x153;process flow.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;This will result in more efficient service for the cus-

1 H Z <R U N   

tomer as all staff will become more accountable and be afforded more ownership of their day to day responsibilities, reducing the need to obtain management approval for routine tasks,â&#x20AC;? the release says. The fourth phase of the realignment process will follow the finalization of the new corporate structure and will begin in December. The release says the fourth phase will address he need for sustainable business practices within the municipality and look for opportunities to improve. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This process will involve improving core business practices â&#x20AC;&#x201D; including but not limited to policies, procedures, bylaws, advisory committees, and financial strategies,â&#x20AC;? the release says.
