A cornucopia of people, parade, and pumpkin was on display over the weekend as residents celebrated the 17th annual Prince Edward County Pumpkinfest in Wellington. Presented by the Wellington recreation committee, Saturday's festivities began with the Friends of the Museum famous pancake breakfast at Wellington Town Hall. The breakfast was followed up by apple dumplings and coffee courtesy of the Hillier Women's Institute and kid's games on the lawn at C.M.L. Snider School. It all built up to a crowd-pleasing Pumpkinfest parade where hundreds watched the everpresent Belleville Shrine Club, floats, and some great costumes trot down Wellington's Main Street. The festival's opening ceremonies were followed by the eye-popping weighoff of giant pumpkins and other fruit and vegetables. The fun continued well into the evening with lawn tractor racing, weigh-off awards, and some great Oktoberfest food at Wellington Legion.

Pumpkinfest organizing committee chairman Bob Greer told the gathered crowd at Saturday's opening ceremony the time leading up to Pumpkinfest is always interesting. He

shared a story of a local woman whose children were each getting ready to enjoy the day. “That family, they're winners before we even get here because they've had good


family time and they've enjoyed growing a pumpkin, having some fun and making some memories — that's really what this event is to a lot of people,” said Greer. “It's an opportunity for grandma or grandpa to bring their grand kids and have some fun.” Greer said he hopes people come to Pumpkinfest with family and appreciate that time and togetherness. Greer's own father, Bill, started Pumpkinfest in 1997 and is recognized for having grown the world's first 1,000-pound pumpkin. Prince Edward-Hastings MPP Todd Smith said Pumpkinfest is another one of Prince Edward County's signature events. “This is one of those great events that everyone looks forward to in Prince Edward County,” he said. “… It was great to see so many people out lining the parade route and taking part in one of the many great festivals we have to celebrate our roots.” Following the opening remarks a time capsule, buried under the Wellington Park gazebo in 1997, was opened by Tina Konecny, Linda Downey, Gord Dancy, and Art Hewer. Inside were copies of The Wellington Times, a letter detailing the history of the gazebo, and a Canadian flag.

One outspoken champion of Canadian artisan cheese is urging domestic cheese makers not to throw in the towel with news that more cheese from the European Union (EU) may find its way here. Stories broke last week that in an attempt to finalize a multi-billion-dollar free trade agreement, Canadian officials would allow more than double the amount of European cheese into this country in return for greater access to the European market for exports of some Canadian agricultural products reportedly including beef, pork, and maple syrup. News reports have pegged the increase at about 17,000 tonnes — allowing the EU to have access to 31,971 tonnes or 7.5 per cent of all cheese sold in Canada. Georgs Kolesnikovs, the founder of the Great Canadian Cheese Festival, held annually at Picton's Crystal Palace for the past three years, says consumers will still buy quality Canadian cheeses, but there is concern about the volume of product coming into the country. “The best Canadian cheeses are as good as any excellent cheeses around the world — but the cheese industry here is so young and so small, relatively speaking, that the volume of imported cheese more than doubling is worrisome," he said. "My hunch is that all of us in Canadian cheese better be proactive before all that European cheese starts arriving in two years." Kolesnikovs said he is planning on hosting a conference next April for producers, distributors, and retailers to outline how Canadian cheese makers can take advantage of the deal and prosper.

It was a feel-good moment as Storehouse Food Bank volunteers awaited the final tally on a spirited shopping spree through Picton Sobeys. The $500 shopping spree has been awarded annually to the biggest bidder during The Great County Pie Auction — presented by the Edith Fox Life & Loss Centre on Sept. 28 during Taste Community Grown. The auction featured 22 pies and raised over $1,400 for the centre. The Edith Fox Life & Loss Centre is a non-profit organization located in Northport which provides clinical grief counselling services. This year the spree was awarded to Wellington resident Barry Davidson who bid $375 for Major Micky's sour cream raisin meringue “Air Force Pie.” Davidson in turn donated the spree to Wellington's Storehouse Food Bank. Food bank volunteer Lisa Marquardt took on the role of “runner” for the spree, during which she scooped up canned goods, peanut butter, laundry soap, juice, and pasta with zeal to fulfill some of the

food bank's biggest needs. Marquardt ended her twominute timed run having filled three shopping carts and nearly hit the $500 mark exactly. “This will help us out tremendously,” said Marquardt. Food bank president

Linda Downey echoed the sentiment. “We are really low on funds this year and this will really help us out,” she said. “Usually at this time of year things pick up, but they haven't at all. There's so much demand.” Downey said currently there are more than 700 people countywide that are rely-

ing on food banks. “We have 102 clients, Salvation Army has 250, and Picton has over 400,” she said. Davidson helped form the Canadian Association of Food Banks and worked with the organization for 13 years. He said after hearing about the situation at the Storehouse Food Bank it was an easy decision to donate the spree.

Crews, family, and friends have been looking for Rutherford since Saturday A Prince Edward County angler remained missing somewhere on the Wellington side of West Lake as of Wednesday afternoon as the OPP Underwater Search and Marine Recovery unit continued its search. A massive search for Wellington's Sandy Rutherford, 54, initially coordinated by the CFB Trenton’s Joint Rescue Co-ordination Centre and involving the Canadian Coast Guard Auxiliary, the Prince Edward OPP, local anglers and friends has been ongoing since Saturday evening when the angler failed to return from an afternoon fishing trip. After official search efforts were temporarily suspended Tuesday afternoon due to high winds and poor conditions, the OPP's Underwater Search and Marine Recovery units were back on West Lake Wednesday morning. Prince Edward OPP community services officer Const. Anthony Mann said the service appreciated all the help from volunteers both on shore and on the water. “It's been a community effort and we certainly appreciate all the help from the public. We all want to do what we can to find Mr. Rutherford,� Mann told the Gazette Wednesday morning. Mann also conveyed a message from the Rutherford family to the community. “On behalf of the family, they certainly want to extend their gratitude to the community for the overwhelming support. Everything from people that are out, assisting in the search to bringing food by the's been very supportive for the family

and they wish to publicly thank everyone and share their appreciation,� Mann said. It's understood that Rutherford departed the safety of the Wellington harbour on Saturday afternoon in his 14-foot Zodiac watercraft at about 3:30 after grey skies and intermittent drops of rain vacated for pleasant weather. However, a fast-moving weather front swept in off Lake Ontario a couple of hours later, bringing stormy skies, wind and rain. Concerned family made the call to the Canadian Coast Guard at about 7:30 p.m. Saturday night after Rutherford had failed to return to shore. Not long after, the Wellington Rescue Coast

Guard Auxiliary were in West Lake, combing both sides of Garratt's Island and the Wesley Acres peninsula. Soon, the crew was joined by Search and Rescue Technicians (SARTechs) in a CH-146 Griffon helicopter while a circling C-130 Hercules dropped flares, illuminating the water and islands of West Lake and lighting the Saturday night sky from Milford to Hillier. While the rain stopped, the westerly wind continued to whip. Some time after 11:30 p.m. Rutherford's overturned boat, a life vest and a shoe were found on shore south of the Sztuke farm, leading rescue co-ordinators to surmise Rutherford's craft would have been in the Wellington side

of the lake. The search continued through the evening and into the next day. More than a handful of fellow anglers and friends with watercraft joined the Coast Guard Auxiliary and the Griffon in the search on Sunday morning as the sun rose. Would-be rescuers took the waters around Garratt's Island hopeful that perhaps an injured Rutherford had made it to shore and was waiting to be found. Land searches were conducted by the OPP as well as friends hoping to find the Procter & Gamble employee. Just after mid-day, the operation was handed over to the OPP and the Underwater Search and Marine Recovery unit was brought in Sunday afternoon as the case transitioned from a rescue mission to a missing persons situation. Mann said the search will continue until Rutherford is found or all avenues have been fully and completely exhausted. He added Wednesday's conditions were much more conducive to the operation. “Tuesday was a very challenging day for the underwater unit and we want to ensure that nothing is missed in the search,� Mann said. “(Wednesday) the conditions are very good and it's hopeful this will be more helpful to the dive team members.� Mann added the water clarity of West Lake wasn't as much of an issue for the team as the weed beds are. “In places, it's a very shallow lake and the weeds are quite thick. That's something we are dealing with,� he added.

Dairy farmers concerned with volume

CHEESE, from page 1

The veteran industry journalist and promoter says he feels consumers likely will warm to quality cheeses coming over, though he's concerned about factory brands that would do little to add value to the market and only serve to lower prices as many in the industry have feared. Kolesnikovs indicated there are good cheeses that cannot be duplicated on both sides of the ocean. "In artisan cheese, terroir, or sense of place is so important, that at least in theory you would have to say Europeans cannot make cheese like Canadians do and vice versa," he said. He explained the awardwinning cheddars made at Black River Cheese would not have the same flavours as those made in the United Kingdom. Likewise, he said Canadians could not make a blue these like Roquefort because of the aging caves in france and the raw milk sheep there graze on. Similarly, he said, no one in France can make a blue like the Fromagerie du Presbytere's Bleu d'Elizabeth, as it too relies on the cows and grass east of Montreal and the cheese maker's techniques. In talking with cheese makers from across the country about the limited information available, Kolesnikovs said he finds reaction is mixed Particularly in Quebec, he said cheese makers and dairy farmers have expressed anger with the deal .He said they feel they will suffer and are already campaigning for federal compensation. Those he's talked to in British Columbia, however, seem to be "more subdued" in their reaction, looking for opportunities rather than negatives. Still, though few details are known, the general consensus coast-to-coast is that the move will harm the Canadian dairy industry by flooding a market that had been fairly well protected. "The general feeling is that arrival of more inexpensive European cheese will require a downward adjustment of pricing. That's certainly the common feeling among cheesemongers and retailers." Asked whether the increased competition would result in innovation, Kolesnikovs said he felt that should be the case but worried that European cheese makers have been in the

game for hundreds of years more than their Canadian counterparts and are heavily supported by government. Black River Cheese general manager Doug Peters is taking a wait-and-see approach, stating that he understands it will be two years before market is opened up and at this time, he said, few details are available about which kinds of cheese will come into Canada and how the scheme will unfold. That said, he did share concerns about more product coming into the market. "Anything that dumps more cheese into the country, the general feeling is that's not going to be good for the cheese industry," he said. Peters indicated that, whether the European deal comes to fruition or not, paying attention to quality standards and focusing on innovation are smart business practices for any dairy. Peters noted that since he arrived at Black River this summer, the company has started to sell a honey cheddar and it is set to bring a curry curd onto the market. The dairy is also working on other innovations. Ontario's dairy farmers are also watching the situation carefully. Sid Atkinson, a Warkworth area farmer who represents Northumberland, Hastings, and Prince Edward Counties on the Dairy Farmers of Ontario board says the additional non-tariff access represents the equivalent of 2.25 per cent of all milk produced in Canada. If there is no market for that milk, he said dairy farmers could see a cut in quota resulting in a farm income

loss of about $150 million. Atkinson said that creates an unlevel playing field for farmers. "Although Canadian dairy farmers welcome competition, this is not fair competition," he told the Gazette in an e-mail. "This deal would displace our local products with subsidized cheeses from the EU and risk our small businesses being shut down or put out of business." Atkinson said the dairy farmers are looking forward to reviewing the trade agreement further to examine its ramifications. He noted the federal government has offered compensation for potential losses, but acknowledged it would be difficult to create a system rivaling European countries. "With our marketing system, we get our returns from the consumer with no government subsidies," he said. "The EU model has government subsidy to top up farmer's incomes, it's hard to compete with that." While Kolesnikovs said there are some imported cheeses he enjoys and will buy regardless — he says there is nothing like the Italian Parmigiano-Reggiano — he has no plans to broaden the Great Canadian Cheese Festival to include products that haven't been created here. "The festival's mission is the promotion of Canadian cheese and we will stay on mission," he said. "When we have surveyed attendees about their interest in seeing imported cheese at the festival, the overwhelming response has been "Keep it strictly Canadian."

New criteria set for municipal grants Councillors Maynard, Lunn, Gale to sit on review committee Chad Ibbotson

Staff writer

The councillors who will sit on the municipal community grant review committee for the 2014 budget have been appointed and they will be using different criteria to judge applications. Councillors Janice Maynard, Alec Lunn, and Kevin Gale will sit on the committee. Staff provided a review of the program with suggestions for improvements to increase the quality and ease of applications for not-for-profit groups and organizations. The report was presented to councillors at the last committee-of-the-whole meeting and approved at Tuesday's council meeting. In 2013 the under $5,000 and under $1,000 grants were combined to allow one application for in-kind and cash for all projects under $5,000 and town hall rental costs were increased to reflect operating costs, the report says. “The impact of charging for cost recovery of facilities was felt by a number of community groups in 2013,” the report says. In 2013, 14 applications were received for the under $5,000 grants and council approved the recommendations of the Grant Review Committee with $11,766 going to 11 groups and organizations in in-kind services and $4,450 in cash

funding toward projects. The report says only two in-kind services were under $1,000 requests. “As community groups and organizations were advised of the increase of rates within the community centres and the town halls many inquiries of funding reductions or waiving of fees were received, but there was no mechanism to deal with these requests after the application deadline of Dec. 7, 2013,” the report says. The municipality's new Resident Resources program — which allows an unlimited pool of residents to give their input on certain municipal issues — was used to assess the grant application process. A focus group of eight volunteers met on two occasions to review the guidelines. These meetings resulted in several changes to the guidelines. A new grant area has been created for requests for municipal in-kind services valued under $1,000. Approval of the grants would be at staff level with the director of Community Development or the chief administrative officer overseeing that process. Each application would still be assessed on the same criteria as all other grant applications. Additionally, all grant requests for under $5,000 would be limited to a maximum cash portion of $2,500. “Grant requests for over

$5,000 would be required to submit the application form for pre-screening on merit by the Grant Review Committee prior to making a deputation to council,” the report says. Those groups also must provide their most recent years' annual financial statement including all reserve funds and assets and demonstration “that the organization is actively pursuing alternate sources of funding and how the organization is working toward decreasing reliance on municipal funding.” Grants will be assessed on four key criteria including funding request merit, the organization's profile, finances, and benefit to the community. Also new will be some assistance to grant applicants in the way of a workshop session to review the grant process and application. Groups wild also be invited to seek assistance by contacting the community development director. The report suggests a budget of $5,000 for the under $1,000 in-kind grants for municipal services and suggests the 2013 budget total of $16,200 be included in the 2014 budget for all other categories. Community development co-ordinator Wendy Lane said staff hope the new guidelines will improve transparency and encourage more community awareness of the program.

Looking back in the

Picton Gazette 80 years ago — 1933

■ The Picton intermediate baseball club was welcomed home with a “monster banquet” and more after reaching the provincial championships and pushing the defending champions from Southampton, near Guelph, a threegame series. The team was already making plans to have staff and players in place for another run at the title in 1934. ■ Rev. S.A. Corrigan marked the 25th anniversary of his ordination to the priesthood with a solemn mass at St. Gregory The Great Roman Catholic Church. The Kingston native had been serving as parish priest in Picton for three years. Previously, he served in Prescott, Brockville, Stirling, and at St. Mary’s Cathedral in Kingston. ■ The first snowfall of the year came and despite being followed by a full day of rain showers, there was still an inch or two of the white precipitation on the frozen ground the following morning.

60 years ago — 1953

■ Seven soldiers stationed at the Picton gunnery school were taken to the RCAP hospital in Trenton following injuries sustained when the driver of the station wagon they occupied swerved to miss a car loaded with school children. The wagon went into the ditch, struck a stone pile, and overturned. The men’s names and their injuries were not released. ■ Enthusiasm ran high as the drive for the new hospital began as 140 canvassers attended a dinner at the Wellington Consolidated School before heading out to the community.. Dignitaries pointed out that Canada in per capita Victory Bond investments and they expressed certainty the people of the county would come together to build the new hospital. ■ The Prince Edward advisory board for the Canadian National Institute For The Blind (CNIB) postponed its regular campaign in hopes that people would give the money to the hospital fund. Annually, the campaign had raised about $12,000, with $2,000 of that money staying in the county to provide services.

40 years ago — 1973

■ Ontario Parks officials were enthusiastic when considering the possibilities for a 600-acre package of land the province had acquired to join Outlet and Sandbanks provincial parks. The tract of land included the massive three-storey Lakeshore Lodge and was expected to be used to expand camping facilities. The acquisition was necessary as camping visits had increased 75 per cent since 1966 and day use had increased 200 per cent. ■ Maple syrup producers from across Ontario visited Picton for a weekend for their annual meeting and convention.

20 years ago — 1993

■ Picton mayor Charles Hepburn said county residents would have to keep up the pressure on the province to not introduce fees for use of the Glenora ferry service. Hepburn said he believed the town benefitted $3-4 million annually from people using the service. ■ Trustees with the Prince Edward County Board of Education voted down an information package from a group looking to reopen the Regent Theatre to make a statement the school system was not a postal service for the community.

Viewing Autumn below us

Many years ago, when I worked as a relief reporter for the Belleville Intelligencer, I thought I might like to do a story on the aerobatic training that was being offered then at the Prince Edward Flying Club. Chief flying instructor Dave Pyle insisted that in order to get a feel for the story, I should climb aboard for a complementary demonstration. The plane, called a Citabria, sat innocuously on the airfield waiting for some action. If you read the word Citabria backwards, it is easy to see what the plane is designed for specifically. I was advised not to have a hearty meal prior to departing and was assured that I would not fall out of the plane. To make a long story short, the pilot took me through about 15 different manoeuvers in about as many minutes from barrel rolls to loops and spins. The point is that flying, even upside down or spinning crazily in circles, doesn’t seem to bother me. Midway rides do. I love to fly and make it a point to go up several times a year, if I can. Ten days ago, I joined Kingston Field Naturalists member and pilot Chris Grooms as we flew out of Norman Rogers Airport in Kingston, and spent almost two hours touring Amherst Island, the Adolphustown shoreline and circumnavigating Prince Edward County, before returning to the airport. Autumn is a beautiful time of the year to take in the fall colour from the air, and there was still plenty of it on the Thanksgiving weekend.


Swinging over Prince Edward Bay, we commenced our tour of the county on the Lake Ontario side and headed in a westerly direction from Prince Edward Point. Flying really gives one a different perspective of the landscape below. On our guided bird walks at Prince Edward Point, I always provide a bit of history to the area, describing how Captain John Walters once owned and, incredibly, farmed 300 acres of the thin soil here. Today, the property has been totally consumed by red cedars, but from the air, the fence rows that marked the field boundaries can still be seen, the old rail fences some 180 years old and still standing. From the air one can clearly see fault lines known as “popups” that run diagonally across the peninsula and extending far out into the lake. It is backcountry along much of the south shore, remote habitat rich

in biodiversity. Nowhere else in the province do we see Lake Ontario shoreline so free from development and encroachment. The scene changes abruptly though as we fly over Salmon Point and see the spectacular beaches of Sandbanks stretched out below us, a park that attracts over a half million visitors each season. These are baymouth bars, formed thousands of years ago as wave action gradually worked the silt left behind by the retreat of the Wisconsin Glacier towards the mainland, forming what has been identified as the largest baymouth sand dune bar system separating fresh water in the world. These bars stretch out before us along the shoreline to form barrier beaches at Huycks Bay, Pleasant Bay, North Bay and finally, an eightkm stretch of sand that ends its journey at Barcovan known as the Weller’s Bay National Wildlife Area. Below us we can see changes – a once navigable channel separating the bar near Bald Head Island, deicted on some of the earliest navigational charts, that has since been totally consumed by invasive Phragmites. Off shore, we can see where this invasive reed grass has formed isolated islets in the shallows. In the next 50 years, that entire shoreline will look much different than what it does today. We get a rare treat on this flight and are given permission to enter the Trenton air space and actually fly right over CFB Trenton. It is Thanksgiving Monday and the cheerful,

accommodating air traffic controller seems to be all alone and appears happy to hear our voice. Other planes are sharing the sky with us too that we must watch for, one of them delivering a glider to Mountain View Airport, from Brockville. It was a good flight, relatively calm, occasionally disappearing into low, wispy clouds as they floated lazily by at only a couple thousand feet. We end our journey before returning to Kingston, by flying over the Big Island Marsh Rehabilitation Project along the Bay of Quinte. Our house seems to pick up the reflection of the newly constructed 12-acre “pond” that was constructed last winter. Below, five high-hoes are poised, ready to resume work the following day on yet two more ponds. This 1,200-acre cattail marsh has not seen pockets of open water in at least 100 years. We fly once again over Amherst Island and the Kingston Field Naturalists sanctuary, recently renamed in memory of the late world traveller and naturalist, Dr. Martin Edwards. Aerial tours like this present the Quinte region below us like a story book, filled with breath-taking beauty and continuous changes. And we didn’t have to spin or fly upside down once to do it!

Man looks for answers about trash left under Norris Whitney Bridge JasonParks

Staff writer

It's time for Prince Edward County's favourite game show “Whose garbage is it, anyway?” A Rossmore resident is wondering just that after three bags of trash have sat untouched at the southeast corner of the Norris Whitney Bridge since late summer. The individual, who asked not to be named, has been trying for months to have the refuse collected by somebody-

anybody- but there has yet to be a taker. “About a year ago, I called the County to let them know there were seven bags of garbage there and eventually, they came and got them,” the ratepayer reported This summer-no such luck. The man started calling the municipality in August and about every two weeks after that. The individual said that no one was able to take responsibility for the trash and it was debated wether the garbage

was in fact the municipality’s responsibility or that of the Ministry of Transportation, which maintains Hwy 62 and the bridge that connects north east Ameliasburgh and the City of Belleville. Either way, the man was hopeful for some action from someone. “It really doesn't look good for the boaters that pass through there,” the man said.

Trashy Despite a resident’s best efforts, bags of months-old garbage remain under the Norris Whitney See TRASH, page 8 Bridge. (Submitted photo)

Report championing social bonding not to be overlooked

HANG’EM up again Wayne Gretzky. Tap out Georges St. Pierre. Close down the mansion Hugh Hefner. Men have a new hero this week, coming from what is perhaps an unlikely corner. Enter Robin Dunbar, the director of Oxford University’s social and evolutionary neuroscience research group. For those who might have missed the reports, Dunbar is suggesting in a new survey that grown men join together in groups of about four at least twice a week to do typical male bonding things — competitive team sports and social beer drinking are among the activities he suggests — because that will actually help make them healthier. According to reports in the National Post this week, Dunbar says this type of activity can greatly increase recovery time from illness and injury and it can also make men more generous overall. Though media reports didn’t go into a lot of detail about how Dunbar came about his findings, they did note that his belief is that it is important to develop a small circle of friends and cultivate those relationships through activities and socializing. The study showed that only two of five men found they could meet their friends once a week, while one in three men in the United Kingdom found even that to be a challenge. The study also showed that men spend one-fifth of their time in a day communicating through some form of device — social media, telephone, or text messaging — but those who met face-to-face reported stronger social bonds. Those men quoting this survey to their significant others in search of a free night out may receive a healthy dose of skepticism in return, particularly since Dunbar’s efforts were commissioned by Guinness. In reality, however, the research likely does apply to both sexes and it probably could be extrapolated that regular social time face-to-face with a group of friends is indeed a necessity to a healthy lifestyle. Society continues to become faster with the devices that are available to almost all members of the population and the expectations on individual people are never ending. It seems that everyone is doing more and more often. Young people are participating in more and more activities to try to get an edge for their futures, business people are able to access more files from any imaginable location at any hour, every dollar counts in today’s economy, and the same family and household chores that once took priority are still there waiting. In a nutshell, life can be very stressful and it doesn’t appear society is prepared to halt or reverse. Perhaps if an esteemed researcher like Dunbar can step forward and say that fun not only has its place in our hectic schedules, but it can help us handle them better, we’ll finally listen. For that reminder, he truly does deserve our attention and applause.

Zombie Walk set to return with more Halloween fun

The popular Zombie Walk, now in its third year, returns to the Picton branch of the public library on Tuesday, Oct. 29. The event begins at 5:30 p.m. at Zombie Central, also known as the downstairs meeting and teen room of the library. Expert volunteers will be on hand to help with zombie makeup and blood -stained, or rather, fake blood-stained bandages. Zombies are welcome to arrive already in costume and mingle as well to watch others become transformed into living dead. The Zombie Walk down Main Street begins at 6:45 p.m. Note that this event is not suitable for young children and those under 12 years of age must be accompanied by an adult to take part. The Library Zombie Walk is presented in partnership with Small Pond Arts and The Regent Theatre, which will be screening The Conjuring at 7:30 p.m. following the walk. All who arrive at the theatre dressed as zombies will gain admission for the special price of $5. This movie is rated PG13. Zombie Walks are popular in many cities around Halloween, but are rather unique in smaller communities. This is perhaps why the Library Zombie Walk in Picton has been a great success. Its first year, it attracted over 80 people and last year was equally successful. An event created on the library’s Facebook page has undoubtedly helped in promoting the event. “Some of the participants we saw at the event last year were not familiar faces at the library with many teens attending as well as parents and teens together,” says Library chief executive officer Barbara Sweet. “We are pleased to offer something that demonstrates that while the library certainly is a place of reading and learning, it is also a creative community hub that welcomes all ages and all interests.” Sweet also stressed that the library is pleased to partner once again with Small Pond Arts and the Regent Theatre.

inside The library CHRISTINE RENAUD

For the younger set, the Milford branch of the library offers “Drop-in for Pumpkin Decorating” at the branch on Saturday, Oct. 26, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. All are invited to decorate a pumpkin to take home and browse the library’s selection of Halloween and fall themed books. At the Wellington branch of the library on the day of Halloween, Oct. 31 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m., children are invited for a Halloween Spook-tacular party with games and treats. Everyone is welcome to visit either after school or on their way out for trick-or-treating. With autumn arriving and the time change occurring, the library will be reverting to fall and winter hours. The minor change means that rural branches will not be open evenings. The new hours will take effect Nov. 4 and will be posted in all branches as well as accessible on the library website at Wellington will offer evening hours until 7 p.m. on Tuesdays and Picton hours remain unchanged with Tuesdays open until 7 p.m. as well. Please note that the library is available and may be open certain evenings for special events and groups and these will not be affected. If you would like to use the library for an event or group meeting after regular hours, contact Christine Renaud or Sweet at 613476-5962.

Black River boat launch user looking for answers With regards to the closure of the boat launch located at the Black River Cheese factory, I as well as many others, have never heard the real reason for closing the launch. We have heard many scenarios, and assumptions of why it is all of a sudden closed. Myself and much of the local public would like someone representing the cheese factory to come out with an honest answer as to why. As many of you know, this boat launch has been around for decades and I , for one, have used it on a regular basis for more than 30 years. On July 26, as I was exiting the boat ramp I noticed a small piece of

white paper taped to the boat launch sign stating the boat ramp would be closed on Aug 1. Many of us thought this was for one day only but it was not so. Myself and friends would use the launch and usually before our boating departure, we would go inside and buy ice cream, curd or cheese before our day on the water. I, as many others, have not spent any money in the cheese factory since August of this year. Speaking with neighbours in the immediate surrounding vicinity, I have been told that many of the patrons of the factory sometimes sit in their yards to eat, cyclists rest and eat and most of the time at the end of the

day their yards and ditches are full of garbage that our neighbours would have to pick up. I can only assume that this was not closed because of the trucks and trailers parked on the side of the road, since there is still plenty of vehicles parked there. Maybe this is okay because they are paying customers to the cheese factory. Another aspect to this is with no or minimal boat traffic coming in and out of the river, it will only be a few years before marsh and weeds take over the channel that barely exists now. If this has been closed for a good reason could someone please explain why to

so many of us that are disappointed in this decision? Please keep in mind that the neighbours of the cheese factory put up with a lot of traffic, strangers, and garbage in the summer, and from what I understand very little complaining. These same neighbours use the launch. Maybe the angle of the entrance to the ramp could be changed or the launch moved itself, or maybe a fee could be charged for using this launch. But since we don’t have a definite reason for closing this, these are just assumptions. Could we please get an answer? We need this launch open. Rich Hicks

Council continues to ignore wishes of its electorate Yet again our council has voted down a recommendation from a body, it created, to review the size of the council opting to maintain the size of council at 16. It should be noted that this is the same size of council as Hamilton and one more than London. Why? The council continues to

ignore the wishes of it’s electorate hoping that the issue will go away and so it will with the current composition of council but the ultimate decision makers are the voters and taxpayers of the county. Keep a note of the councillors who voted to maintain the current bloated

council: attend the all candidates meetings which will be held before the next council election and ask one question, namely “will you support reducing the number of councillors to the 10 recommended by the citizens’ assembly?” Only vote for those candidates who pledge to do so.

Let us show the 10 members of the current council who voted to maintain the current size of council that ignoring the wishes of the voters has consequences.

County councillors voted to reject the proposed reduction in council size. But, the vote was not about council size at all. It was about changing the historic ward boundaries. The consequence of the Rose proposal and the Mayor’s 5b map was impossible to accept in a county that cherishes its history.

It is my belief that most County taxpayers favour a reduction in council size. However, “politics is the art of the possible”. It is unfortunate that Gary Mooney’s proposal was ignored. That proposal divides the County into three electoral districts, while keeping ward bound-

aries intact, achieving proportional representation and bringing rural and urban interests together. The current rural and urban divide is one of the causes of inefficiency in decision making. Each voting district could be represented by three or four councillors for a total council size of nine

or 12 councillors. Each councillor would represent a larger constituency reducing the parochialism which characterizes the current council. This proposal should be reconsidered and submitted for approval.

County, MTO send officials to examine waste left near bridge

TRASH, from page 6

“I don't understand why they can't send a truck and be done with it.” Calls to the Ministry of Transportation and the municipality on Wednesday by the Gazette seemed to stir some action. A ministry spokesperson

asked for pictures of the trash and the location of the refuse and was going to have a maintenance supervisor look into it. Prince Edward County commissioner of Engineering, development and works Robert McAuley said the issue was news to him but that he would look into it.

“I suppose if it is sitting directly on MTO property then MTO ought to be dealing with it but I'm not sure we stick that rigidly to the guideline,” McAuley told the Gazette Wednesday. He added the case last year might have been the municipality picking up the slack regardless of who's

task it was to clean up the area. “It might have been dealt by just wanting to keep a clean looking shoreline, never mind who owns the property. That might have been approach,” he said. McAuley said municipal workers would check out the area Wednesday.

Heritage committee will have a say

Council elects to have one process for delisting properties Chad ibbotson

Staff writer

Any requests to be removed from the register will now go to the Prince Edward Heritage Advisory Committee (PEHAC) for consultation, then on to council for a decision. The latest development in the heritage delisting debate came Tuesday evening as council received a request from chief administrative officer Merlin Dewing to remove portions of the motion approved at an Oct. 10 committee-ofthe-whole meeting. Dewing said the situation is complex. He said some properties were listed and owners were notified at that time, but other properties were listed more recently without consultation. “That's what prompted council's automatic delist process,” he said. He said properties that did receive proper notification should come through council with consultation from PEHAC and properties that did not receive proper notification would come through the auto delisting process. However, he said it would be better to process all the items using the same process as outlined in the Ontario Heritage Act. “Because of the nature of all the listing, it would just be so much simpler to bring all the requests for delisting back to council,” he said. “We'd have our consultation and it would be dealt with in that fashion, rather than trying to separate one group from another group

‘The Heritage Act fails the home and the homeowner in that it imposes restrictions upon them without providing adequate funding...’ PEtEr MErtEns MaYOr

and have two different processes for two different groups.” As a part of the new process, Dewing said municipality will ensure that all homeowners are consulted before being added to the heritage registry. “Whether (PEHAC members) do it or don't do it, we do it now. We make sure all the properties that are about to be listed, that the owners are aware,” he said. The motion passed Tuesday says council recognizes their obligation to consult with PEHAC, however, does not support the PEHAC resolution that delisting require reconsideration of a property's cultural heritage value if that means involving a consultant. Mayor Peter Mertens said he spoke to a heritage consultant who had received an informal legal opinion on the matter. Mertens said the consultant was told the process outlined in the Heritage Act must be followed.

“Anyone who requests to delist now, it's being referred to the heritage committee automatically. Then it comes to council and the heritage committee will report to council on it,” he said. The delisting debate was re-ignited earlier this fall when resident Mark Woodward spoke to committee of the whole, saying his elderly mother wished to sell her nearly 200-year-old property, but the heritage register listing stood in the way. While the Woodward home will not be discussed again until the council meeting of Sept. 26, Woodward spoke at Shire Hall Tuesday in opposition to the delisting process outlined in the heritage act. “The heritage act fails the home and the home owner in that it imposes restrictions upon them without providing adequate funding to restore, maintain and preserve the structure. This is a provincial issue in my mind,” he said. He refuted claims that listing doesn't affect an owner's ability to sell heritage homes. “Heritage enthusiasts will propose that heritage listings are not detrimental to property values or potential sales. I differ from that opinion with first-hand experience,” he said. A few councillors remained wary of de-listings coming back to council for a decision. Among them was councillor Terry Shortt who said the process infringes on property rights.

Some tips for communicating with people dealing with hearing loss

This column is part three of a series of four columns on the topic of hearing loss. The information is taken from pamphlets published by the Canadian Hearing Society. Pick the best spot to communicate. Avoid noisy backgrounds like TV, air conditioners and crowds, as well as poorly lit areas. Tell others about your hearing loss. Provide feedback to the person who is speaking. When you don’t understand, ask for it to be repeated or rephrased. Look for visual clues to what is being said. Tell others how best to talk to you. Share responsibility for communication. Keep a sense of humour. Be patient, positive and relaxed. Tips if you are speaking to someone with a hearing loss...



■ Pick the best spot to communicate. Avoid noisy backgrounds like TV, air conditioners and crowds as well as poorly lit areas. Get the person’s attention

before you speak. Face the person when speaking, and don’t look down. ■ Speak clearly and naturally, perhaps a little slower than usual. Don’t shout, it’s embarrassing and can cause discomfort and distort speech. Do not cover your lips when speaking. Give clues when changing the subject. ■ Don’t be “deadpan.” Body language helps project the meaning of what is being said. Be animated and use lots of facial expression. Write things down if you’re not being understood. Share responsibility for communication. Keep a sense of humour. Be patient, positive and relaxed.

about how having a hot, nutritious meal delivered to your door – or to the door of a loved one – could make a difference in supporting the choice to live at home. If you need exercise in a supervised environment, where someone is available in the event of an accident or illness, consider Community Care’s walking programs.


Through Community Care, there are a number of volunteer opportunities that allow individuals to help seniors living independently in the county. Many people volunteer to make connections with their community, to meet new people, learn skills, and take advantage of their own abilities. Community Care volunteers have the option to choose long-term or shortterm roles and can find opportunities tailored to their own schedules. Among the many volunteer opportunities are: delivering hot or frozen food to seniors’ homes; setting up Seniors Luncheon

Socials in many areas of the county; driving seniors to appointments or shopping, helping out at foot care clinics in Wellington and Picton; making daily calls to seniors or visiting those who cannot get out regularly; helping with walking programs or other exercise courses; preparing and filing tax returns or helping seniors with important government forms; working in the Community Care office or the thrift shop. Help is also required for fundraising activities and programs. To become a Community Care volunteer, contact the agency at 613-476-7493, visit its office at the Armoury Mall, or e-mail Potential volunteers will have to complete an application, attend an information session, and have an interview to determine their proper placements. From there, Community Care will welcome successful applicants and give them a start date, training, and other information relevant to the positions they are seeking to fill.

County Collection brings local art to public places Program offers a chance to connect Chad Ibbotson

Staff writer

The County Collection is once again bringing that collection to the community. Formerly known as Art in the Community, the County Collection distributes the work of local artists throughout public spaces like Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital, the Edward building, and Shire Hall. This week the group is working on their bi-annual rotation of that artwork. Terry Culbert, who cochairs the County Collection with Catherine Reilly, said the artwork is rotated every six months throughout the county in an effort to bring more attention to the local art scene and entice buyers. “It gives you a chance to see what these people do,” said Culbert. “Mainly it's recognition for the artists themselves.” Each artwork is hung with a placard detailing the name of the artist and piece, the selling price, and contact information. Many works are displayed prominently throughout Shire Hall in council chambers and in of-


Industrial - Commercial - Residential





fices. In a hospital or clinical setting, Culbert said the paintings can mitigate some worries and pain if only briefly. “Say you're in the hospital for a busted arm or something and you're waiting and waiting to go into see someone and this piece of art sort of takes away from the pain in your arm,” said Culbert. “You could get someone to write down the artist's name and you get in touch with them and you can purchase it.” The County Collection is a program of the Prince Edward County Arts Council (PECAC). The only requirement for participation is the artist must be a current member of PECAC. An artist himself, Culbert works with acrylic at his Ameliasburgh-based County Studio.

County Culture Canadian Song Celebration concert nets $1,300 pot for Reaching for Rainbows Well-known county musicians congregate at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church to raise funds for after-school program Chad Ibbotson

Staff writer

A talented group of county musicians gathered in Picton over the weekend for a celebration of Canadian song and to lend their support to a program that seeks to provide a nurturing environment for girls. A Canadian Song Celebration was held Sunday afternoon at St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church in sup-

port of Reaching for Rainbows — an after school program focusing on girls and their unique needs. “Reaching for Rainbows responds to some significant challenges in the county around poverty, school success, and a province high pregnancy rate,” said Donovan. “We recognize that many parents are struggling and are in need of support. The program is grass roots and has

been assembled mainly by professionals who have worked in the field of child development.” About 115 people packed the church to watch the show, which raised $1,300 for the program. Donovan said the benefit concert was the brainchild of pianist MaryKay Morris who contacted Donovan about doing a fundraiser for the program. “She also had a vision for the event to include Canadian music only,” said Donovan. Donovan said the pair then listed some of their favourite Canadian composers and some classic Canadian songs such as “Four Strong Winds” and “Something to Sing About.” They then brainstormed a list of local musicians who might was to take part in the show. “The musicians responded wholeheartedly because they believed in the Reaching for Rainbows

cause and because many of them are friends and enjoy working together,” said Donovan. The list included Mark Despault singing “The Badger Drive,” Lorain Sine singing Rita MacNeil's “The Working Man,” and Ken-

neth Leslie's “Cape Breton Lullaby” as performed by Rachel Morris and Coleen Galway to name just a few. “It was an exceptional event musically,” said Donovan. She said the support is very appreciated and much

needed. “While we are licensed with the Ministry of Education, our budget is only $20,000, but that is still a lot of money to raise year after year,” she said. “Therefore fundraisers such as this play a significant role. They also give us the opportunity to share the Reaching for Rainbows vision with the wider community in the hopes of engaging them as ongoing supporters.” She said the concert helped the program recruit three new volunteers — positions that are crucial. “We are still in need of volunteers who are willing to get down on the floor with the girls and journey with them as they learn through play,” said Donovan. Donovan said Reaching for Rainbows is funded by contributions from many different sources, including a substantial grant from the Presbyterian Church in Canada. “We are hoping to get to a point where we are sustained by gifts coming from members of the community,” she said. Information provided on pamphlets at Sunday's concert says the goal is to garner annual pledges of $100 from 200 households to sustain the program's annual budget. Donovan said St. Andrew’s is now preparing to host “A Child’s Christmas In Wales” read by former CBC host Rob Klipperton and music by Tom Leighton and Conrad Kipping on Saturday, November 30 at 3:30 p.m. For more information on Reaching for Rainbows or to volunteer contact Lynne Donovan at 613-476-1167 or email

Seasonal home staging tips

If you are planning to sell your home this fall or winter, you may want to think twice before turning your front lawn into a Halloween graveyard or winter wonderland. According to Phil Dorner, president of the Ontario Real Estate Association, it is important to keep seasonal decorations to a minimum when opening your home up to potential buyers. “Visitors need to be able to picture themselves living in the space,” says Dorner. “An overly cluttered or decorated home will detract from their experience. Keep in mind not everyone celebrates the same holidays that you do or shares your taste in décor, so it’s always best to follow the rule of ‘less is more’ when showing your home around holidays.” If you choose to decorate your home during the selling process, make sure to follow these tips: • Keep it clear. Decorations should not block hallways or prevent potential buyers from entering or exiting areas of your home. • Engage the senses. Soft lighting and a nice aroma (like pumpkin or cinnamon) will welcome guests without being over-

powering. • Make it homey. Especially when selling in fall/winter, create the feeling of comfort by layering couches and beds with throws and cushions, for example. • Keep it functional. When decorated, living spaces should still look the part (i.e. a family room should not resemble Santa’s workshop). Some general staging tips: • Make sure your home is spotless, especially the high traffic areas. • Put away personal belongings like family photos. • Make sure that closets, cupboards and drawers are organized to show maximum storage potential. • Create ambiance in certain rooms like bathrooms by laying out plush towels and candles without over cluttering the space. “Don’t sink a ton of money into staging,” advises Dorner. “Keep it simple and talk to your Realtor about what buyers in your area are looking for.” For more information, visit

Dukes overcome second period lapses to win pair Victories over Buffalo, Mississauga help keep Wellington in first place Jason parks

Staff writer

The mark of a really good junior hockey team is a squad that can overcome ill timed flaws or momentarily lapses in play and continue to win. Obviously, a really great junior hockey team doesn't have these flaws to start with. This year's edition of the Wellington Dukes might be a really great hockey team. But there were a few seams exposed in their two most recent triumphs that indicate they still have some more polishing to do before reaching that rarified air where the best of the best hang their collective hats. Wellington (13-3-0) continues to lead the Ontario Junior Hockey League with 26 points and have fell only once in their past 13 games. That impressive stretch includes their home victory on Friday night at Essroc Arena in which they dispatched the Buffalo Junior Sabres 5-3. The following morning the locals took part in the annual Pumpkinfest parade then boarded a bus to the Port Credit Arena where they halted the Mississauga Chargers 6-2. Wellington went 5-for-11 with their league-leading power play in the win and, from the exterior, all looks

fine in Dukeville these days. However, upon examination, the club failed to put away the Sabres when the visitors showed up with a five-hour case of bus legs. The following evening, the club had 53 shots but needed some puck luck and a full Mississauga meltdown to start the third in order to fully distance themselves from a mediocre Charger hockey club. Wellington Dukes coach and general manager Marty Abrams is nowhere near ready to throw the baby out with the bath water but agrees that his hockey club had a glorious chance to grind the Sabres down to dull in the opening frame and didn't do it. “We've had issues in the second period all year and it happened again against Buffalo,” Abrams said. “We got off to a real good start,took our foot off the pedal and that's been our (modus operandi) this season.” Erick Delaurentis opened the scoring early in the first when he beat Buffalo netminder Joseph Pianta with a slow shot five hole at 1:09. Wellington continued to bring the play to Buffalo most of the period but couldn't build on their lead. With their legs under them, the Sabres came to play in the second and started sending pucks Lucas

Macahalski's way with regularity. While the club couldn't be directly accused of playing with fire in the middle stanza, their was a whiff of gasoline and pack of matches in the vicinity of ice

surface as the Sabres closed in. Finally, Darren McCormick beat a partially screened Machalski at 12:06 to knot the game at 1-1. That lead lasted exactly 1:26 as Trevor Cope busted

in on Pianta and beat the netminder on the low glove side to retake the lead. Wellington would once again surrender that lead in the third when Max Mikowski was allowed to drive to the Duke cage un-

abated at the 8:00 mark to tie it up at 2-2. Again, the Dukes must have felt the heat of blowing another lead, and responded quickly.

Almost a quarter of the way through the regular season and the Picton Pirates sit atop the Empire league standings. The team helped its cause this week, picking up a pair of victories against the Port Hope Panthers (4–1) and Napanee Raiders (5–3) and improving to 8-1-0-0 in nine games this season. “I've been really happy with the last couple of weeks. You can start to see signs of guys understanding what we're asking them to do and they've been putting together solid efforts,” said Pirates coach and general manager Ryan Woodward. “It's always a challenge to put together a full 60 minutes, but the guys are working hard now, play-

ing the game the right way and having success.” The team put together a solid, sturdy home game on Thursday when they face the Panthers. Picton was skating well and creating chances when, midway through the opening frame, Corey Prince beat Panthers goalie Branson Schell to put his team on top. Affiliate Calum Kennelly had the assist. Less than three minutes later Ryan Sizer finished off a play from Brian Bunnett and Jack Davison to give Picton a two-goal lead which they ultimately carried into the second period. Picton held a 15–7 shot advantage through the opening frame. At 8:42 of the second Jacob Spicer got the Panthers on the board, but a 720 Dundas St. W. Belleville 962-4584 1-877-258-8346 720 Dundas St reet West, Belleville, at the corner of Hwy 2 and Wallbridge-Loyalist Parkway 1-877-969-1171 720 Dundas St reet West, Belleville, at the corner of Hwy 2 and Wallbridge-Loyalist Parkway


minor for cross checking taken by Nick Jobb and a bench minor served by Brandon Durst put Picton on a two-man advantage. Nolan Van Vlack scored at 12:11 on the ensuing power play, restoring the Pirates' two-goal lead with Sizer and Kenny Murduff getting the helpers. Bunnett would add a goal midway through the third as the Pirates finished the game with a 4–1 victory. Woodward said the team played solid a both ends of the ice. “Nolan Van Vlack and Corey Prince, both county boys, had tremendous games. They've really elevated their play over the last couple of weeks and they've been key contributors,” said Woodward. “The guys are playing hard and

using their speed, generating chances and the pucks are starting to go in.” The Panthers were held scoreless on the power play despite seven opportunities. Woodward noted the hard work of many penalty killers including Bunnett, Evan Greer, Nolan Powers, and Brandon Peever, and Murduff but said the best one is often between the pipes. “Your best penalty killer is often your goaltender and Andrew Pearson has been fantastic. He's provided us with great goaltending each and every night,” Woodward said. “From there you're getting big efforts from guys who are committed to playing hard-nosed team defence.”

Nicholson got scoring from Clark Albert, Gio Felly, and Jimmy Murray. Picton native Derry Mayer had the shutout. The Panthers had several good chances off second-half corner kicks but couldn’t find the net.

Basketball seniors find game for stretch run Panthers beat Falcons, Crusaders AdAm BrAmBurger

Staff writer

After a slow start, the PECI Senior Basketball Panthers appear to be rounding into form as playoffs approach. The Panthers beat both St. Paul and Nicholson in the past week and got some valuable seasoning at the St. Matthew’s tournament in Ottawa. Coach Rob Garden said the girls are showing signs of executing the game plan. “At the beginning of the season, we talked about two keys for this time: create

chaos and have everyone contribute on offence,” Garden said. “We’re starting to do both, and the results are proof.” Last Tuesday, the Panthers figured they’d be in tough in Trenton as the St. Paul Falcons boasted a starting lineup of five OBA rep basketball players. The Panthers showed their strong suit for defence as they held St. Paul to just four points, while they put up 15 themselves. PECI couldn’t close the game out, however, and the Falcons capitalized to draw within two points with 30 seconds to go. A St. Paul player took a costly technical foul with 10 seconds left

and Brittany Snider hit two clutch free throws to secure the 26-22 win. Maggie Dorenberg was the top Panther scorer with nine points. In Ottawa, the Panthers dropped three decisions, but that didn’t bother Garden as he pointed out all the teams are of high quality. They started the tournament against the hometown Ridgemont Spartans. Despite an 11-0 run to start, the Panthers fell 46-32. Snider picked up 12 points. Ottawa’s Lester B Pearson Panthers had one dominant player in its lineup and that was the difference.

Evan M. Isenor

In loving memory of my darling husband, who left us 2 years ago October 26, 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. Always remembered and loved wife, sons, daughters, grandchildren and great grandchildren


FOX, In loving memory of a dear son and brother, John, who passed away October 21, 2012. You had a smile for everyone You had a heart of gold You left the sweetest memories this world could ever hold. To us you were so special What else is there to say Except to wish with all our hearts That you were here today. Love Mom and family FRANKLIN, Marguerite. Passed away on October 27, 1998. Missed and remembered. Bill and Mame McCONNELL, Wendy. In loving memory of our dear mother, 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 certain foods you remember, flowers, you pick the fragrance of life itself. She's the cool hand on your brow when you're not feeling well, She's your breath in the air on a cold winter's day, She is the sound of the rain that lulls you to sleep, the colours of a rainbow, she is Christmas morning. Your mother lives inside your laughter. She's the place you came from, your first home, and she's the map you follow with every step you take. She's your first love, your first friend, even your first enemy, but nothing on earth can separate you, not time, not space, not even death. Love and always miss you, your children Emily, Kalen and Devon and grandson Parker RYCKMAN, In loving memory of a dear mother and grandmother, Martha Mae, who passed away October 24, 2010. You never failed to do your best, Your heart so warm and tender, You lived your life for those you loved, And those you loved remember. Loving and missing you always, Ron, Cindy, Cassidy and Olivia. RYCKMAN, In loving memory of a precious mother and grandmother, Martha Mae, who passed away October 24, 2010. You can only have one mother, Patient, kind and true, No other friend in all the world, Will be as true to you. To those who have a mother, Cherish her with care, You will never know how much you miss her, Until she is no longer there. Never to be forgotten by daughter Lisa, son-in-law Paul, grandchildren Tyler, Pauly, Kendra RYCKMAN, Martha. In loving memory of a dear mother and grandmother who passed away three years ago on October 24, 2010. Beautiful memories, They last till the longest day, They never wear out, They never get lost, And can never be given away. To some you may be forgotten, To others a part of the past, To us who loved and lost you, Your memory will always last. Miss you and love you, You are forever in our hearts. Love always, Lori, Mike, Nathaniel and Miranda RYCKMAN, Martha. In loving memory of a dear mother and grandmother, who passed away October 24, 2010. Everyday in some small way, Memories of you come our way, Though absent, you are always near, Still missed, loved, always dear. Lovingly remembered by Angie, Dale, Paige and Caleb RYCKMAN- In loving memory of Martha Ryckman, who left us October 24th, 2010. If flowers grow in Heaven Lord, then pick a bunch for us, Place them in our loved ones arms And tell her they're from us. Tell her that we love her and miss her And when she turns to smile Place a kiss upon her cheek And hold her for awhile. Love son Michael, daughter-in-law Christine and grandson Gage. RYCKMAN- Martha Mae. In loving memory of a very dear mother and wife who left us October 24, 2010. A million times I've needed you A million times I've cried If love could have saved you You never would have died Things we feel most deeply Are the hardest things to say My dearest Mom I loved you In a very special way. If I could have one lifetime wish One dream that could come true I'd pray to God with all my heart for yesterday and you. Loved so much and dearly missed by your daughter Krista and husband Gerald.


TAYLOR- In loving memory of our dear brother Ronald, who passed away October 29, 1960 at the age of 19 years. There is a corner in our heart we keep it just for you. As long as life and memories last we'll always think of you. Love forever sister Elva, brother Bob & Deanna.

CLARKE, Elizabeth Ann "Betsy"

Peacefully in Picton, Ontario, after a life well-lived, on October 16, 2013. Born August 24, 1940 at Antrim, Ontario on the family farm where she learned a love of the land and the rural community that she never lost. Elizabeth Ann, known all her life as Betsy, was the eldest daugther of Robert Serson Sparrow and his wife Bessie, both deceased. She was a graduate of Queen's University, 1963. She was the dearly loved and loving mother of Bradley Mackenzie and his wife Adrienne (nee Ball) and Daniel Richard, and grandmother of Lucas Thomson and Callum Harris Clarke. There was no role in her life that she loved more than being mother and grandmother to her children and grandchildren. She loved them with a passion. Betsy was the sister to Sally Cowan and her husband Bill (Milford, Ontario) and to Bob Sparrow and his wife Carolyn (Antrim, Ontario) and aunt and great aunt to their children and grandchildren. Betsy had a long career in public service: as a high school English teacher, Secretary Manager of Carp Agricultural Society, and Executive Director of the Canadian 4-H Council and 4-H Foundation. In 1991 she established her firm, Betsy Clarke & Associates, described as Consultants in Philanthropy. She loved being a fundraising consultant; her goal was always to put the organizations she worked with - most often community-based ones where she could make a difference - on the path to self-sufficiency. In her later years, she was very actively involved with churches and faithbased organizations, which she recognized as the catalyst for starting so many of the agencies that supported the vulnerable in our society. She was proud to be an Anglican and supported her parish of St. Matthew's in many ways. Visitation at Tubman's Funeral Home, 403 Richmond Road, Ottawa, on Tuesday, October 22 from 2-4 and 7-9pm. Funeral Service was held at St. Matthew's Anglican Church, 217 First Avenue, Ottawa, Ontario on Wednesday, October 23 at 1pm. Reception followed at St. Matthew's.

Wellingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s discipline pays off in third period

don't take our foot off the pedal early in the game, maybe they don't have a chance to get back into it,â&#x20AC;? Abrams commented. On Saturday, Wellington built a 4-0 lead before Mississauga responded late in the second period to close the gap to 4-1. A pair of Wellington power-play goal in the third sandwiched a Charger shorthander to make it a 6-2 final. The most disciplined club in the OJHL stayed that way as the Chargers led a constant parade to the penalty box for a contest that felt like it was one huge Wellington power

play. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Right from start to finish, it was a tough game and not one we felt very comfortable in. (Assistant coach) Randy Rowe said it was a coach's nightmare on both sides of the bench-probably for them for the number of penalties they were taking and for us being on the power play all the time,â&#x20AC;? Abrams said. Steven Deeg, Cope, Parker Wood, Delaurentis and Spencer Turcotte all had power play goals while Justin Bean got his first as a Duke as well during a rare five-on-five opporunity. After getting eight power

play chances in the first two period and building a three goal spread, the game went from bizarre to ridiculous at the start of the third. With little provocation, Mississauga's Jake Harrison took a deliberate run at Deeg from behind at 1:09 of the third. Delaurentis had a few choice words for Harrison who dropped his gloves and immediately went at the Dukes winger, drawing instigating and agressor minors as well as a major for fighting in addition to the original checking-from-behind minor. Out of all the hysterics, Wellington was afforded nine minutes in power-play time and potted two. Just to be sure the Chargers were completely taken out of it, Mississauga's Tyler Cooper earned a five minute major for elbowing Andrew McCann in the head just moments after Harrison's sin bin time had been run off. Wellington heads to St. Michael's for a Friday night road game against the Buzzers. The Dukes are at home Sunday to take on Pickering at 7 p.m.

made the most of the twoman advantage as Greer banged the puck past Lasher to make it 3â&#x20AC;&#x201C;0. The score would remain 3â&#x20AC;&#x201C;0 through the middle frame as either team was able to find the back of the net. Picton held the advantage in scoring chances as they outshot the Raiders by a margin of 13â&#x20AC;&#x201C;4. That score would change early in the final frame as a pair of Picton goals by Prince and Sizer less than two minutes apart would make it 5â&#x20AC;&#x201C;0. The Raiders finally got some steam as Picton penalties piled up in the final 10 minutes. At 10:20 Falcao was given a minor for roughing while Picton's Taylor Brown was given minors for roughing, instigating, and aggressor, a fighting major, and a game misconduct for fighting. Jordon Cannons scored on

the following Napanee power play and Blade Grigg scored a pair to bring the Raiders within a pair with just under three minutes to go. Despite the strong Napanee push, the Pirates were able to take the two points. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For 49 minutes I thought it was one of the best performances we've had against a team in the Empire. I thought we played a complete game and limited them to about 10 or 12 shots through 50 minutes,â&#x20AC;? said Woodward. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was unfortunate some penalty trouble and some extracurricular stuff happened late in the third and put us in the box and they were able to capitalize.â&#x20AC;? Woodward said the club would take the good from the game and forget about the bad. Despite 11 opportunities,

the Raiders were able to muster only one power-play goal. Woodward said he's no worried about his team's discipline, noting that the Pirates are the league's least penalized team at 111 minutes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We're only in control of how we play and there are some things in the game that aren't in our control,â&#x20AC;? said Woodward. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some things happened in the third period that I wasn't happy about, but we're just focused on how we're playing and we're not going to allow that to phase us.â&#x20AC;? The Pirates will look to continue their success tonight versus Deseronto at 7:30. The team has a couple of road contests this week. The first will see the Pirates visit Port Hope on Friday at 8 p.m. The club then travels to Amherstview to take on the second-place Jets on Sunday night. Puck drop is at 7:30.

DUKES, from page 24

Joe Mckeown got open in front of Pianta just 39 seconds later and deked the goalie to put Wellington in front again, this time 3-2. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(Mckeown), if you look after when we gave up the second goal, he really focussed and took control of his shifts for the rest of the game. He was instrumental in getting us the win,â&#x20AC;? Abrams said. Perhaps having learned from two blown leads or maybe Buffalo finally relenting just enough, the locals were able to put the game bed less than a minute later when Luc Brown tipped an Austin Broadhurst shot to make it 42. Buffalo's Pat Egan sent a floater through Macahalski with seven seconds left to make it 4-3, but Delaurentis took the puck off the opening face-off and deposited into the vacated Sabres net prior to the buzzer to make it a 5-3 final. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We responded well (to the blown lead) and we have been responding to these kinds of challenges. But if we

Late Napanee comeback effort falls short Saturday

PIRATES, from page 24

Early on, the Pirates took control of Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game against Napanee. Just 4:51 into the opening frame Greer finished off a play from Bunnett and Sizer to put the Pirates on top. The Pirates were skating and forechecking hard and it paid off. At 7:45 Sizer picked up the puck in the neutral zone then danced around all five Raiders skaters before firing a wrist shot past the blocker of Napanee goalie Josh Lasher. Nolan Powers picked up an assist on the play. The Pirates skating paid off again late in the period when Matt Marino was assessed a tripping penalty at 14:47. Just nine seconds later the Pirates man advantage was increased to two when Jake Falcao was sent to the box for interference. Picton

Novice Kings split pair of weekend games (two), Philip, Young, Grimmon and Josh Cunningham. Stock was the games winning goalie. The Kings take part in the annual Milk Tournament this weekend. The 45-team, multi-age level tournament is a three day affair with games in Wellington, Picton and Deseronto.

regular season. The Phantoms skated past the Kings 3-1 in a bizarre game which featured a morass of penalties for an Atom game. In total, 26 minutes in penalties were handed out by the officials. After being down most of the game, the Kings were able to break the shutout in the late going when Owen Payette spoiled the Port Hope party with 2:34 remaining. Assists went to Ryan Cunningham and Nathan Percy.

After winning their first five games of the OMHA regular season, the County Farm Centre Kings were finally tripped up this weekend as the local Novice BB squad spilt a pair of games. On Saturday in Picton, the Kings and the Port Hope Phantoms locked horns with the game being scoreless the dying minutes of the second. The visiting Phantoms prevailed 5-2. Riley Grimmon had both for the Kings while Kieran Young, Mathew Vincent and Liam Rice added helpers. Kings netminder Austin Stock was solid in the first half of the contest keeping his squad in the game until the Port Hope attack finally produced. On Sunday, the Kings travelled to Tweed and took down the host Hawks 6-2. Grimmon, Ben Smith, Gerrit Kempers, Lochlan MacDonald, Liam Philip and Dominic Guerrera all had singles for the well balanced Kings club. Assists went to Kempers (two), Reese Kleinsteuber

Books & Co. to host all 29 entries for public library week



Chad Ibbotson

SINCE 1974

Staff writer

One may be forced to look at outdated books and magazines in a different light after visiting this year's DiscARTed art show and sale. The show â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which opened Oct. 19 and continues through this Friday, Oct. 25 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; features a wide range of artistic creations made from old books. The pieces are on display daily above Books & Company in Picton. The show is a fundraiser for the County of Prince Edward Public Library & Archives and the Prince Edward County Authors Festival. The timing is fitting as this is Ontario Public Library Week. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was great, it was really good,â&#x20AC;? Library manager of communications and outreach Christine Renaud said of Saturday's opening. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most of the artists showed up and lots of other people from last year who were anxious to see what this year's show had.â&#x20AC;? Renaud said all the pieces are made from books at the library which are either too outdated or too damaged to sell in the used book store. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Often they are textbooks and things like that,â&#x20AC;? said Renaud. The show featured 29 pieces from 20 artists and an intriguing array of interpretations, said Renaud. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There's everything from little miniature scenes made from paper â&#x20AC;&#x201D; for ex-

Renaud said the artists utilized an impressive variety of media including wall hangings, miniatures, and large sculptures. The public is invited to come to the show and vote for their favourites. All the pieces are for sale with some being complete donations and others being split between the artists. She said in the future the

show will be held twice per year. The next show will be held in April. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because it's a fundraiser for the library and the Prince Edward County Authors Festival, we're doing it this week for what is Ontario Public Library Week,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We're going to do another DiscARTed show in April when the Prince Edward County Authors Festival is on.â&#x20AC;? The exhibition wraps up this Friday where the people's choice award will be announced. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I encourage everyone to come out and have a look, vote for their favourites, maybe take a

piece home and keep in mind we're also going to do it in April and we invite all artists to contact us,â&#x20AC;? said Renaud. For more information about this year's DiscARTed show or to participate in the next DiscARTed exhibition, contact Renaud at 613-476-5962 or email

The Eastern Ontario Wardens' Caucus (EOWC) has commissioned a new report that the organization sees as a first step toward improved cellular services across the region. The EOWC announced at its Oct. 18 regular meeting that the Eastern Ontario Regional Network (EORN) has be commissioned to conduct a detailed “gap” analysis of the region's coverage. Mayor Peter Mertens says in a release issued by the municipality last week that improved coverage is critical for both Prince Edward County and the rest of Eastern Ontario. “Reliable cellular coverage is essential for residents, visitors and businesses, and critical for emergency services,” says Mertens. “Acknowledging the gap in cellular service is an important first step toward modernizing communications and provision of key emergency services for the County of Prince Edward.” The release says EOWC members — which include mayors and wardens from 11 eastern Ontario counties and two single-tier municipalities — often hear from constituents about deficiencies in cellular coverage. “In addition to working towards providing access to

high-speed Internet services to more than 450,000 homes and businesses in the EOWC region through the EORN project, the members of the EOWC regularly hear from their constituents about the lack of adequate cell coverage in many parts of the region,” the release says. These comments precipitated the undertaking of the gap analysis in an effort to find a solution that will work for the region as a whole. “The EOWC has decided that it needs to take the lead to determine if a project that would include senior levels of government and the telecom industry can be created and implemented as soon as possible,” the release says. EOWC chair Rick Phillips says in the release that the lack of adequate cellular coverage is a common gripe shared by many eastern Ontario communities. “Every day our members receive comments and questions about the lack of cell coverage. Our residents are telling us that with the ongoing success of the EORN project we need to take the challenge of making access to affordable cell services a reality across the region,” says Phillips. “We know that this won’t be easy, but we are taking a key first step by commissioning the gap analysis.”

Eganville man grows 2013’s largest pumpkin, weighing in at 1,463.5 lb

TerraCello grand opening was a heck of a party

PUMPKINS, from page 1

Kramp, Smith use event to discuss removing barriers for wine exports

I went to quite the party this past weekend! The last time I wrote about TerraCello, winery owner and winemaker Anthony Auciello told me that they were in the middle of a "soft opening" to get a feel of how the public liked their wine. He told me that they were planning their grand opening for Oct. 19 and they were inviting family and friends. He said it would be one of the biggest Italian parties the county has ever seen ... and let me tell you: he was right on the mark! I arrived there at noon and there was a small crowd there to start things off. Music was playing and barbecues were cooking sausages. There was so much food I was thinking they were planning for an army! And of course the wine. Pinot noir, Riesling and Vidal were the varietals being served up and people were amazed. None more so than special guests MPP Todd Smith and MP Daryl Kramp who were invited to participate in the ribbon cutting ceremony. Both politicians have been supportive of the wine industry in the county. Smith has been tirelessly working at Queen's Park in Toronto representing the interests of the county wine producers. He supports breaking down inter provincial trade barriers when it comes to wine (among other things). As he put it on Saturday: "I tell my colleagues at Queen's Park that I'm proud to represent winemakers from the county who produce some fantastic award-winning wine and I want to work to share that wine across Canada!" Federal MP Daryl Kramp was quick to agree with Smith. He pointed out that the Throne Speech this week announced a plan to amend the Importation of Intoxicating Liquors Act so

that beer and spirits can be carried across provincial boundaries for their own use. He said "and of course this will be beneficial to the wine producers here in the county as they will then be able to showcase their incredible wine across the country". He mentioned the new free trade deal between Canada and the European Union tentatively signed this week. Yes he said that this could mean more wine coming from the EU but he was also quick to point out that the tentative deal would also give Canada preferential access to more than 500 million new customers. According to the Canadian Vintner's Association, exports of Canadian wine has grown from $20.3 million dollars in 2008 to $41.2 million dollars in 2012. The top 10 exports markets in 2012 were China, the United States, South Korea, Hong Kong, United Kingdom, Singapore, Japan, Russian Federation, Taiwan and Malaysia, representing 99.7 per cent of export sales volume. Under the terms of this new agreement, these exports could explode providing local wineries with even more potential international growth. International growth

Panthers head to Moira as season winds down

PANTHERS, from page 25

That player scored 24 points in a 42-26 win. Michaela Jackson led the Panthers with 10 points. The third game allowed the Panthers a rematch with the Opeongo Wildcats who beat them by three points in Kingston. The Panthers didn’t have the legs to run with them this time, falling 46-34 but Garden said his team played controlled basketball for four quarters. Melissa Corbin had a career-high 13 points in the game. On Tuesday, the Panthers hosted the rival Nicholson Crusaders in a packed gym and they fed off that excitement in a 3835 victory. Garden said before the game he told the Panthers to play the game as if it was their last and to leave all their effort out on the court. “They did just that,” he said. “We pressed for a full 32 minutes and created chaos all over the court.”

The Panthers led 11-6 after a quarter, but allowed Nicholson to come within a point by half. The Panthers did experience some growing pains with their strategy as they outfouled the Crusaders 10-3 by the break and had to rely on their full bench to stay out of foul trouble. “It didn’t matter because everyone contributed,” Garden concluded. The Panther didn’t have their characteristic lategame lull, they just kept going and they wore down Nicholson. Seven played found the basket. Dorenberg and Snider each had nine points, Jackson six, Cailey Jones and Corbin five each and Danielle Willis and Melissa Paradis also chipped in two each. Garden said Tuesday was a highlight for him as the juniors also won, marking the first sweep of Nicholson since he’s been coaching at PECI. The Panthers will visit Moira tonight.

Edward-Hastings MP Daryl Kramp and MPP Todd Smith toast TerraCello’s grand opening with owners Daniela and Anthony Auciello. (Joe Hache/For The Gazette)

wasn't on the minds of people celebrating at TerraCello Winery on Saturday however. They were there to celebrate what has happened over the past several years. I spoke with a lot of people who made the trek from Toronto for this special event. They told me how they shared in Anthony and Daniela's dreams from Day 1. They shared stories of the hours they spent helping them plant vines and how they were so proud of their friends today as they celebrated their grand opening. And it wasn't just friends and family from Toronto. It was new friends they had made here in the county. Over the course of 6 hours I watched as hundreds of people came and went. Many made the drive from Toronto just to spend a couple of hours to celebrate. People arrived and left throughout the day. Also on

hand were many from the county. Both Smith and Kramp commented on the entrepreneurial spirit of this young couple and both were amazed at the outpouring of support of family and friends from Toronto as well as the county. Auciello promised me this huge Italian party awhile back and in the intervening weeks they sold out of most of their wine (not bad as a soft opening to test the market) but he had "a bit" left over for this event as he fulfilled this promise. Everyone agreed ... it was one heck of a grand opening.

The gazebo was destroyed during a storm in January and efforts are now being made to fundraise to build a replacement. The contents will be on display at the park where a metal box will be placed to collect donations. Wellington councillor Jim Dunlop said it was another great year for Pumpkinfest. “Once again the committee has outdone themselves,” he said. “The turnout is excellent, probably the best we've had in a few years because of the bad weather we've experienced. It's another demonstration of how people can come together.” Dunlop said when people come together to create something like Pumpkinfest, it creates a real sense of community that encourages more residents to take part. “It's good for making good neighbours,” said Dunlop. Wellington resident Adella Newton said she was really happy with this year's parade, noting that it showed what Wellington is all about. “It was a good representation of the people and the products that are here. It was great seeing Highline Mushrooms — they employ so many of our people — and of course Rotary and the Lions,” she said. “I love the atmosphere because everyone's so happy and friendly.” Newton said she attends the festivital almost every year and it always seems to

be improving. “It's getting fuller every year. There's more representation and there's a lot more work going into it,” she said. John Vincent, who oversees the weigh-off portion of Pumpkinfest, was equally pleased with this year. “It was awesome. We had a really good turnout. We got people from quite far away, we got some big pumpkins — it went really, really well,” he said. Vincent said the weighoff drew entries from as far away as Ohio, Alberta, and Quebec. He said the visits could help spread word and help grow the local festival. Vincent took home the Bill Greer Award for the heaviest county-grown giant pumpkin for his 980.5pound entry, which placed sixth overall. He said although it would have been great to take home the top prize, it's nice to be recognized. “It was a tough growing year and I was happy to at least have something to put on the scales. It's nice to be able to win that award,” he said. Weigh-off results for the top three entries in the giant pumpkin category were: Ryan Hoelke of Eganville, Ont., 1,463.5 pounds; John Matesa of Breslau, Ont., 1,442.5 pounds; and Todd Kline of Shawville, Que., 1,253.5 pounds. Results for all other categories can be found on the Prince Edward County Pumpkinfest Facebook page EdwardCountyPumpkinfest.
