Over the years, the annual Taste celebration has always coincided with the fall harvest in Prince Edward County. This year, the event also helped to plant new seeds for local charities. Two of the focal points of the day, a local pie auction and a cook-off based on the television show Chopped raised $1,680 for the Edith Fox Life and Loss Centre and $1,455 for Canadian Tire Jumpstart within the county. Taste the County chief executive officer Jeremiah MacKenzie said those new ingredients definitely added a delightful flavour to mix. "The benevolent side of the event shone through. We were able to raise some good money for some good charities and that was all wrapped around a good time." MacKenzie said as of Tuesday, volunteers were still counting the overall attendance figures for the festival, though he believed well over $2,000 people bought tickets to attend the event, while even more people browsed the free farmers' and artisans' market adjacent to the tasting areas. "We certainly exceeded our internal targets," he said. While people traditionally come to the festival to taste the latest wines and spirits from the growing viticulture area here, paired with gourmet cuisine, MacKenzie said he felt there was something to the new additions — they added elements of entertainment and education to the day. MacKenzie said that leads to a more beneficial situation overall as it allowed people to be entertained, while giving something back to the community the event attempts to celebrate. For nearly the last hourand-a-half of the festival, the large tent set up in front of the Crystal Palace for people to sit and watch young chefs Steve Claves, Scott Royce, and Matt DeMille square off in front of opened barbecues in

MacKenzie said that was the type of atmosphere was prevalent throughout the cooking seminars and workshops also. While radio personality Ange Stever provided commentary, the three chefs got to work on the meal they were asked to prepare featuring a generous portion of local pork , chorizo sausage, sweet potatoes, and corn as well as a number of complementary items available to them. The men worked away at a 30-second clock feverishly mixing the food and getting it onto plates to serve for judges Cynthia Peters, Rebecca LeHeup, and Karin Desveaux, who were watching alongside the audience. Ultimately, DeMille, who serves as chef at Pomodoro in Wellington, was declared champion.

Councillors have declared an asset management plan a priority for the municipality in hope of securing provincial funding to complete the plan which is a requirement for future municipal infrastructure funding programs. A report prepared by community development coordinator Wendy Lane says the Ontario government has made long-term asset management plan a requirement to secure future infrastructure funding. In doing so, the province also announced a funding opportunity to assist communities with creating the plan, with a requirement being that council makes a resolution to make such a plan a priority and submit with an expression of interest an application to the Municipal Infrastructure Investment Initiative. The report says the initial phase of the project kicked off in mid-August under the long-term infrastructure plan Building Together. “The first phase of the Municipal Infrastructure Strategy provides $60 million over three years to municipalities for municipal management planning and critical repairs,” the report says. The funding includes $8.25 million to help small rural and northern communities meet requirements and develop the plans. It includes $750,000 over three years to service managers who have fewer than 4,000 social housing units. Additionally, $51 has been set aside over two years to fund critical repairs to infrastructure that have been identified as priorities through the asset management plans. “Asset management plans utilize the tangible capital asset data compiled to comply with the requirements of the Public Sector Accounting Board into meaningful reports necessary for long term financial planning, including the financing of capital projects,” the report says.

Search and rescue agencies work together to respond to mock plane crash Waupoos-based exercise helps teams become familiar in non-crisis situation AdAm BrAmBurger Staff writer
Hundreds of airplanes fly over Prince Edward County and its surrounding waters every day. What if the unthinkable were to happen and one of those planes were to go down over water?
That was a scenario local Coast Guard Auxiliary units and other emergency response agencies tried to grapple with as part of the Quinte Region Search And Rescue Exercise Saturday. As far as emergency responders could tell, a plane went down south of Waupoos Island around 9
a.m. and they were forced to scramble their resources from the Waupoos Marina. Rob MacCallum, a member of the Wellington Rescue Canadian Coast Guard Auxiliary, was the chair of the group working to put on the demonstration. He headed out on the water in the Picton Rescue boat Avalon, set up as the onwater command centre for the exercise. He said the rescuers quickly managed to get down to work. "It is always a little bit chaotic at the start. The radio communication is fast and furious through the first 15 minutes. After 10 minutes, the communication was excellent," he said. "Everyone reacted very well. I was happy with the professionalism displayed by all involved."

was a new challenge for the volunteers involved in clearing out Saturday's crash. "The search patterns are something to be mastered and with two boats, you had to think as a team," said MacCallum. "It's different when you're working together." As an added twist, the organizers of the exercise has volunteers from the rescue boats from Wellington, Picton, Brighton, and Belleville working on each other's boats as well as on the shore. The boats also had paramedics on them to assess the injuries the victims had suffered. A Canadian Coast Guard cutter, Cape Hearne, and a rescue boat, stationed out of Hill Island were also involved in the operation, as well as a Kingston Fire rescue boat, two OPP boats and a host of land ambulance and fire services.

"It gives the crews opportunities to work together," he said. Maneuvres like transferring crew from vessel to vessel and leaving victims at a transfer site on the island's dock were among the wrinkles MacCallum and the committee wrote into the scenario to keep the responders on their toes throughout the day. MacCallum said all the live victims were found and treated — some were taken back to the marina for treatment by the Quinte EMS and the Prince Edward County Fire Department — but one of the dummies was ultimately not found as it had sunk. On shore, another organizing committee member, Peter Windfeld, manned the communications base, listening to all the actions going on out on the water. He said he was a bit frustrated about the communications until he heard a member of the 8Wing Trenton Joint Rescue Co-ordination Centre tell him that's normal for a crisis of this size. Otherwise, he said the exercise achieved its objectives. "It was more or less to get all the agencies familiar with each other because we're all local," he said. "We all get something from these exercises. Really, its all about familiarizing ourselves with the other agency personnel. They know who to call and who does what. It's a huge thing, there's no other way for it to get together. You can't sit at a meeting. It has to be here." Windfeld said there were some liberties taken for the benefit of the operation as he said, usually if there are deaths — and in a real plane crash there likely would be — the OPP would take control of the situation. This time, the operation continued simply as a rescue scene with people in the water, checking for hypothermia and safely searching and rescuing. Monk said he felt the organizations could do group training activities more often as a way to share their best practices and get to know one another. MacCallum said it may not be practical for another similar operation in the Quinte region right away as funding is limited and the operations need to be spread around, however he felt that groups could benefit from working together. "Wellington and Brighton are close, that gives us more opportunities to work with one another ," he said.
Scattered in the water were a number of volunteer victims, some weighted rescue dummies that would simulate dead bodies, a smattering of debris, and a substance simulating a fuel leak. Doug Monk was on the Wellington Rescue ship as they started their search. "The first thing we saw was a bunch of stuff floating in the water," he said. "You stop and call it in, get a position on your GPS, and they'll tell you to go ahead and rescue the people." The Kingston fire boat worked to clear the simulated fuel spill, while the search and rescue vessels worked together to take people out in small numbers. Normally, each of the rescue boats works on its own in its own area during calls, so the co-operation

Provincial Launch Lab partners with PELA CFDC to help business leap ahead
AdAm BrAmBurger Staff writer
A first-of-its-kind partnership promises to offer Prince Edward County businesses high-end consulting and training opportunities for free without traveling any farther than Picton's Main Street. On Friday, the Prince Edward-Lennox and Addington Community Futures Development Corporation (PELA CFDC) welcomed the provincially funded Launch Lab innovation centre to open a satellite location within its Edward Building suite. The centre, which has its main office in Kingston, is one of 14 regional organizations across Ontario designed to assist innovative companies starting businesses in key sectors like life sciences and health care, information technology, clean or green technology, and advanced manufacturing. About seven months ago, a mutual friend put PELA CFDC executive director Craig Desjardins in touch with Launch Lab CEO Michael Mann. Desjardins, whose federally funded organization provides loans, grants, and advice for entrepreneurs said they found the two organizations had many of the same goals and could potentially end up helping a number of similar clients in the region. "Today, it's a different world â€” a new world and an exciting world with technology. Given the changes that are taking place, the realities of government and the limitations we all have with resources, that leads to col-

laboration," said Desjardins. "As an organization that has gone through incredible transformation, it is so exciting to see another clientfocused organization that is dedicated to helping small business." Mann said that while his group had discussed partnerships with a number of different groups in its area between Quinte West and Brockville, reaching north to Hwy 7, this was the first connection with a federal group and it was made possible by some outside the box thinking by Desjardins and his
staff to try to help clients they are already trying to serve. "To coin a phrase, we're stoked about this relationship," he said. "I think it's going to be an incredible marriage of the federal government and the provincial government that is the first in our industry." Primarily, the Launch Lab intends to give entrepreneurs access to knowledge, though it also acts as a funding arm for provincial granting and loaning programs much as the CFDCs work at the federal level. Launch Lab, and the other
13 regional Innovation Centres funded by the province's economic development and innovation ministry under its Network of Excellence, aim to connect start-up business people with a team of entrepreneurs in residence specific to their own fields. "They are all experienced business people who have been business owners or are business owners. Some of them have sold businesses successfully," Mann explained. "When we provide mentoring or coaching services, we're going to put them together with similar people. We've got a good group of people who have been there and done that." Besides having those vital mentors right in the community, Launch Lab will also host a number of training sessions throughout the year free to businesses in the industries it serves. Among its first workshops are ones in marketing and communications and in human resources. Desjardins said he believes there will be a high demand for such workshops. "Most important, it's free and it's in the community. Space is limited, but it is very exciting to have such high value training right here in the community." The innovation centres also have a network of information made possible by an affiliation with the not-forprofit MaRS Discovery District in Toronto (also one of the 14 centres), a public-private partnership between the province and several professional service organizations dedicated to assisting growth industries. MaRS was originally an incubator for healthrelated sciences at the old Toronto General Hospital
and its founder Dr. John Evans tagged it with the MaRS name, an acronym for medical and related sciences. One thing Mann said the MaRS connection has helped with is in providing accurate market intelligence. "The reports that come back are very thick, the clients loves them," he said, indicating the marketing and product data isn't just provided on a local level or even a Canadian level, but they also touch on North American and global trends. Specifically, the Picton Launch Lab office would have three staff members at work on a part-time basis in addition to the entrepreneurs in residence. There is a portfolio and operations manager,
Ashleigh Smith, her assistant Garrett Elliott, and a funding and grant specialist, Andrew Barrett, who can help clients negotiate through red tape to find funding. The partnership was met with enthusiasm by stakeholders for the local business community on site. Mike McLeod, the general manager of the Prince Edward Chamber of Tourism and Commerce said the facility will be much like the rocket ship logo that it displayed on all of its promotional materials. "It shows progression, it shows direction, and a lot of good stuff," he said. "Having a facility and service like Launch Lab will be fabulous."

Bob Hunter of P.E.C. Farms didn't get the answer he was seeking at last week's committee-of-thewhole meeting. Hunter was seeking council support resolutions for a multi-faceted project on his Belleville Road property, which would include a groundmounted solar panel component and a biomass component. The proposed project would cover an area of 15–17 acres. However, the committee deemed more information was needed and voted to have staff come back to council with a report and recommendation. The solar portion of the project would be made up of two side-by-side twomegawatt projects that Hunter said would create jobs during design, fabrication and erection. Hunter said he is currently testing the panel array and the projects would be placed on low-quality soils. Before constructing the northern two-megawatt project he would have to submit a rezoning application. The biomass portion of the project would included the collection of agricultural excess and other biodegradable elements such as grass and brush clippings along with a new species of purposely grown energy crops. Hunter said in a written submission to the committee the project would involve taking in fall leaves, grass clippings, wood et cetera to the project site and “composting into a compost/topsoil like product to apply and improve our shallow, tuff, county soils and to improve our agriculture crop production.” The submission goes on to say Hunter has been working on converting unused crop “residue” along with new grass species “for purpose grown biomass-to-energy production.” “After food, energy is probably the most important thing we cannot live without,” Hunter told the committee. “We're not going to go back to horse and buggy, so we better figure out how to do it.” Hunter said the solar arrays he would be constructing would sit at

about eight feet, about two-and-a-half metres, high. Although Hunter was seeking a timely answer from councillors last Thursday — the window to apply for small, 500 MW and under, Feed-in Tariff (FIT) contracts is open from Oct. 1 to Nov. 30 — several councillors voiced concern with the project. Under the new FIT rules a council support resolution would be worth two points, which could determine which projects receive contracts. As of Thursday's meeting Hunter had yet to formally submit information regarding the projects to municipal staff. Councillor Terry Shortt said he would need a lot more information before supporting the project. Recently, Shortt initiated a council request for more information about such projects before developing a standard application for council support resolutions. “Now that the municipality does have some input I think it binds us to somehow come up with a system where communities can have a say on some of the projects which, obviously, will have an impact on them,” Shortt said. Mayor Peter Mertens said providing blanket support for the project would be premature at this point. “We have no idea what this is actually going to look like because Bob himself said in a week or two they're going to put up a prototype to see whether or not it works,” he said at the meeting. Mertens said without a formal application to the municipality council and staff had nothing to weigh their decision on. For his part, Hunter developed a scale model of the project which he showed to councillors. He said time was a crucial factor and said he had already had to back off of another project because municipal approvals didn't come in time. “Sometimes you need the Hazel McCallions of the world to make things happen,” Hunter said, referring to Mississauga's longtime mayor. The report was expected to come back to council at its Oct. 9 meeting.

Looking back in the
Picton Gazette 80 years ago — 1932
■ Picton town council discussed the unemployment relief supported by other levels of government and suggested the money should be doled out as a return for work unemployed people were able to do, rather than given as a handout. Councillors talked about potential sidewalk projects that may be completed. ■ Several local citizens attending a dance at the Castle Inn helped police capture a 20-year-old man who had been assaulted two women while being intoxicated in public. The man was placed under arrest and he faced several charges for his actions, thanks to the public’s awareness. ■ The Gazette received and published a letter from a German woman, Anita Stahl, expressing her willingness to marry a man who would give her $25,000 to save her father, a hotel owner, from bankruptcy.
50 years ago — 1962
■ Mayor H.J. McFarland was said to be working on an industry that would bring employment for many men to the county. He said there was a greater than 50 per cent chance of landing the industry, which he said was tied to the prospect of a bridge being built near Green Point. ■ The Town of Picton rented leased three vacant offices on the second floor of the Odd Fellows building. The town would also receive exclusive use of the adjacent vault for the substantial records kept by its treasurer and assessor. ■ The Department of National Defence asked town council for approval to erect a siren on the grounds of the town reservoir to assist with the national attack warning system. The town gave its full support t o the proposal by resolution.
30 years ago — 1982
■ Two Kings were going to do battle for the top seat in Picton as incumbent mayor Donald King was to face a challenge from councillor Bob King at the polls. The two men had often spoke on opposite sides of issues during the term of the previous council. ■ Sophiasburgh resident Fred Campbell questioned the township’s practice of paying councillors $35 per meeting for the time they sit on the recreation committee. Campbell noted that while the councillors received pay for their time, the rest of the committee members were serving in a volunteer capacity. Campbell also felt the committee could do a better job advertising events. ■ Upon lobbying from the Ontario Federation of Agriculture, MPP James Taylor, and solicitor Richard Byers, Environment Minister Keith Norton stopped an order for a Northport farmer wrongly accused of polluting neighbours wells to supply their homes with water.
10 years ago — 2002
■ A 31-year-old Picton man was charged with break and enter, theft exceeding $5,000, and possession of stolen property after police located $6,000 worth of Fosterholm Farms maple syrup at a Belleville residence. The syrup and other goods with a total value of $18,000 were stolen from a sap processing building at the Athol sugarbush that March. ■ QHC formed a committee to try to convince the province that a different funding formula was necessary to properly fund multi-site hospital operations.

The granite, greatness, and gorges of Frontenac
This is time of the year for hiking at Frontenac Provincial Park when the heady fragrance of conifers and decaying leaves settles in little pockets, before new woodland scents take their place. The trail we walked took us past New England asters, tickseed trefoil, snakeroot and a plethora of bluestemmed goldenrod, the latter a common blooming species in woodlands at this time of year. There were also fungi, just pushing up through the forest litter, and numerous ferns, including maidenhair, sensitive, marginal shield, lady and wood ferns, and polypody. A thrush which remained anonymous skulked tantalizingly in the underbrush ahead of us, and hidden deep within the deciduous woods, a redshouldered hawk called. This was the Doe Lake Trail and the Arab Lake Gorge Trails, an easy four kilometre hike which gently introduces hikers to what this 13,000-acre park is capable of offering. On a map of the park, these two trails almost become lost in the corner of the trail map which depicts their location near the park office as more than 170 km of hiking trails overwhelm the rest of the map, reserved only for the fit and the daring. I have done some of them, and a few, like the Slide Lake Loop are not for the faint of heart. Vertical, rocky inclines and “bum-rocking” (sitting on rocks as you descend, one rock at a time) highlight this challenging hike in what is considered to be the most rugged section of
OUTDOOR RAMBLES TERRY SPRAGUE
the park. And that is after one paddles a canoe for 90 minutes to reach the spot where the hike begins! For us though on this hike with 18 nature enthusiasts in tow, the walk at Doe Lake was a “stroll in the park”. The igneous feature we wandered about on is true Canadian Shield, part of that extension known as the Frontenac Arch or Axis. If you follow this backbone of eastern North America far enough, you will come to the Adirondack Mountains. Lake Ontario actually owes its existence to this outlier of the rugged Canadian Shield. As glaciers carved out the basins of what was to become the Great Lakes, these basins filled with water and eventually overflowed in their search for the sea, finding it initially out the Oswego River. As the glaciers continued to retreat and the land rose higher, Lake Ontario found a new exit towards the east, spilling between the giant hills of granite. The
numerous hummocks of protruding rock became the Thousand Islands in this now flooded landscape. So we have an interesting mix here of typically northern Shield species such as the polypody fern we found clinging to rocky edges, and southern species such as shagbark hickory which reaches its northern limit at Frontenac. It’s a diverse system of habitats, resulting in a diverse collage of plants and animals. However, while these species live together harmoniously, there is a noticeable absence of another species – the pioneer residents who barely eked out a living on this harsh landscape, scratching a living from the soilless rocks by farming, mining, trapping and logging. Their past presence here was felt as we passed by a collapsed trappers’ shack. We came across another such reminder on our hike, the Kemp Mine. It wasn’t difficult to guess what was mined here as the rocks behind us glittered with flakes of mica, a mineral commonly found in granite along with quartz and feldspar. The hole we were now staring at was typical of pit pines, excavated by hand by ambitious pioneers who welcomed the additional income. The small pit mine was considerably less ambitious than the commercial mine remains I visited in March this year on the north side of the park, known as the Tetsmine. The Kemp mine probably dates back to the late 1800s, and is already being reclaimed by nature, evidenced by the lichens and
ferns and other vegetation we found growing inside the hole. Frontenac Provincial Park is an ideal area to simply lose ourselves in wilderness – not literally, of course, but spiritually, to sample the inner peace that comes only from unspoiled locations like this. It is not so remote that you never see anyone, but remote enough to satisfy that urge to just get away from the modern world, away from computers, blackberries and cell phones, and get back to basics. Frontenac becomes a world of nature, abandoned mines, decaying shanties, settlement roads, and nature carrying on uninterrupted with no worry that it might somehow be in the way of development. For us, hiking is what we do when opportunity and schedules synch as they occasionally do for us every year. To not only walk for the sake of walking, but to identify what we see and try to understand how it all fits into the natural scheme, and the processes that took place for everything to be as it is, and where it is – that is important. That component makes any hike more complete, when one can forget the day to day issues, and just lose ourselves in another world – a world that is more relaxing and which somehow makes sense, if only for a little while.

Thanksgiving a good time to defeat hunger locally
WITH all the bounty available at last weekend’s Taste celebration, all the brightly coloured food piled high at local farm markets, and the delicious Thanksgiving meals many of us will sit down to this weekend, it is hard to believe that hunger could be an issue right here in Canada. Those at the food banks in Picton and Wellington and at many local churches could likely tell a different story, however, as over the past few years the number of people relying on food banks or charitable giving for their meals has steadily been on the increase — in fact, some months its a wonder the supply can ever meet demand, even in a county that produces a lot of its own food with farmers who are very generous to help their own. Consider last year Food Banks Canada did a comprehensive study on the services of food banks across the country and the impact of hunger. Some of the statistics they highlight are surprising. During the survey period, it was discovered that some 93,000 people per month accessed a food bank for the first time, and if Prince Edward County numbers are any indication, that number is likely going to rise. Also during that same period, 35 per cent of the food banks ran out of food and 55 per cent of them indicated they needed to cut back the portions of food they gave to each household to ensure there was enough supply to go around. It’s also important to note that food banks do not just serve those who cannot find work as nearly 20 per cent of the people surveyed did have some kind of employment income when they visited a food bank — possibly not enough to afford both food and another staple of life — and a staggering 38 per cent of those in need of food banks’ services were children or youth. While hunger in far off countries seems to be a well-known problem, people in communities close to here are struggling to find food and their lack of nourishment can be a further burden when it comes time to be productive at work, successful in school, or contributing in some way to society. This weekend is as good a time as any over the course of the year to evaluate how fortunate many people are to not only have enough on their plates, but also to make feasts where there may be leftovers that become a little too familiar, and there may be items that are wasted. It’s a good time to realize there are others in this community, who, despite their best efforts are unable to enjoy the same luxuries. If that is the case, maybe it is time to think about ways to help spread all that one is thankful for — and food banks are part of that equation. It’s a good bet that the Picton United Church County Food Bank in Picton, the Storehouse Foodbank in Wellington, or Gleaners across the way in Belleville could use any help they could get to ensure that more people can be thankful they are living in a community where food is not in short supply and they’ve had enough to get through the day.

Library welcomes donations of technological devices
The County Public Library & Archives welcomes donations of gently used computers and tech devices, especially in consideration of the recent modifications to the federally funded Community Access Program (CAP) which eliminated three quarters of the library budget for hardware and software purchases. “This has unfortunately occurred at a time when the needs of the community and requests for training and access to technology are increasing,” says library CEO Barbara Sweet. IT Coordinator Eric Pierce agrees. “While we have the resources for most of the library’s needs, we could use and would appreciate donations of items such as computers, tablets, and ereaders that may no longer be needed as people upgrade their technology devices.” Specifically, the library could use flat screen computer monitors, desktop/tower computers less than 6 years old, laptop computers less than 6 years old, laptop computer bags, USB connectors, keyboards and computer mice. The popularity of eBook readers has also created a demand for these devices at the library, and there are currently waiting lists for the library’s KOBOs. “Tablets such as iPads, Blackberry and Android, digital cameras, camera cards, USB sticks, as well as smart phones would be welcome, too,” adds Pierce, “as well as spare internet and Ethernet routers and switches and CAT 5 Ethernet network cables.” The library may be able to accept items that are in need of simple repairs as well, but it is recommended that donors call in advance of bringing items to the library to assess their suitability. Please do not donate items that cannot be used such as computers that are six years or older, laser printers (unless they are small network or USB models less than three years old), inkjet printers, old style keyboards, or any tube type monitors. Pierce invites inquiries about anything that might be refurbished at 613-4765962 or by e-mail at: com-
InsIde the lIbrary CHRISTINE RENAUD
email@example.com The library also welcomes donations of DVDs, and items that might not come to mind with relation to the library such as printer paper and office supplies. “We recently were fortunate to have a gentleman drop by with a large donation of children’s new art and craft supplies and children’s DVDs,” says Barbara Sweet. “It happened that we needed prizes for a fundraising bingo at the Milford Fair the next day, and the donation came just at the right time!” Additionally, the donated items will be used in children’s programming. Sweet said that she regrets not having had the opportunity to thank the generous donor personally, but hopes that he and others who donate items knows how much their donations are appreciated. “The library is always cost conscious,” says Sweet, “but in these times, we must be especially vigilant, so donations are important.” The library has been particularly proactive with fundraising efforts this past year, and carefully looking at all cost saving opportunities while continuing to deliver the level of service the community wants and deserves. Donations of DVDs and office supplies can be made to any branch of the library. If donors are unsure of whether the donation is suitable, they are asked to contact Barbara Sweet at 613-476-5962 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
Luncheon committee sets example for volunteers
I recently read with interest the article which included a photo in the local media re The Picton United Church Women’s Soup and Sandwich Committee. They were hosting a luncheon at the church on Sept 19 with proceeds being directed to the PECMH Foundation’s campaign for digital mammography. I could not help but reflect on the fact that this is just one volunteer organization of many that works tirelessly to give back to the community. Ten years ago this group of 12 under the leadership of longtime volunteer Phyllis Mabee thought that it might be a good idea to start a quick, health wise and reasonably priced lunch for working
business people. They do get some customers from the business community (especially take out orders); however, most of their guests are retirees who usually stay and visit and enjoy a nourishing lunch that they don’t have to prepare themselves. The committee soon realized that they were providing food and fellowship while making money for their outreach programs. All funds raised by this mission and service committee go to many of the local outreach programs. They include ROC., Alternatives for Women, Salvation Army, Fire Victims, Snow Suit Fund, CAS Christmas Tree Program, Reaching for Rainbows,
Hospice and Stephen Lewis- Grannies for Africa. Their menu has remained the same: soup (three choices), sandwiches (four choices) and homemade cookies along with tea , coffee or juice. Over the last 10 years their prices have gone from $5 to $7 which is probably one of the best deals in town considering the quality of the food. All the food is donated by the members of this group. It is obvious that these ladies enjoy working together and at the same time giving back to the community. I have had occasion to attend some of these luncheons (usually on the third Wednesday of each month) and I have found the food very tasty
especially the hearty soups. I have focussed on one group of volunteers but there are many groups in the county that are also doing "good things". I think that we all realize that one day some of us may need the help of community services and that the county could not run without dedicated volunteers. Please consider volunteering your time with an organization of your choice as many groups are very much in need of help. There is not a better feeling than knowing you have helped individuals less fortunate than yourselves. Just ask the soup and sandwich ladies. Fran Renoy Picton
Life near graveyard makes for interesting thoughts
I’ve come to the realization that cemeteries are probably not haunted. Living beside one for the past year has led me to this conclusion, since I haven’t seen a single ghost in all that time. When my husband and I bought the house I was a little concerned, as I have never been entirely convinced that the supernatural does not exist. Though I’ve yet to encounter any spirits firsthand, that doesn’t necessarily mean there aren’t any, does it? Or aliens, for that matter. These I never want to meet and sincerely hope that they
are fantasy. Or if they’re not, I’d prefer that they land in someone else’s backyard so other people can deal with them. I’m much too busy. But back to the ghosts that may or may not be in my yard. I’ve decided that if they haunt at all, they don’t do it where their bones are buried. Surely if their spirit is angry or traumatized they’d appear at the scene of the crime, the place where their spirit was released. Why would they haunt the place where nothing happened, except some digging and burying? I remind myself that this graveyard is really
more of a museum anyway. These thoughts reassure me and I can now look out my window with equanimity and enjoy the historical aspects of the pioneer cemetery behind my house. But wait, Halloween is coming up soon. Last year things were quiet here, but who knows about this year? Maybe I should dress up in something sufficiently spectral to scare away any ghosts that might be lingering for this special occasion. Or I could plan the county’s next Ghostwalk to keep my mind on the history of
the place. Though I’m not really sure I want to find out who is actually buried there. The name Lowder appears on one of the stones, I’ve noticed… Perhaps it would be easier to go somewhere else for Halloween. Just in case. Besides, most of the kids down our way go up to Picton for trick-or-treating so they can get more loot, faster. Maybe they know something about the cemetery that I don’t know? Lynne Grist West Lake

ROC tells council it is meeting mandate Youth centre looks to continue its partnership with municipality Chad Ibbotson
Representatives from the Recreation Outreach Centre (ROC) expressed their desire to continue building on their youth park partnership with the municipality that began two years ago. Executive director Darlene Thompson, program coordinator Katy McIntyre and student employee Bree Kerr gave committee of the whole their yearly report of ROC initiatives at the County Youth Park, where they told councillors how effective the park has been as a facility to connect with youth. Thompson said even with one youth worker at the park this year — compared to two last year — the ROC was able to meet its mandate. A report submitted to the committee by Thompson says volunteers, summer student workers and the youth worker all agreed it was a successful summer. “The workers were able to be positive role models and provide mentoring in a safe environment to many youth, families and visitors daily,” the report says. “The partnership was invaluable for connecting with youth and establishing meaningful relationships.” The report says busy days and times varied substantially throughout the year. “On any given day including weekends there have been 0-25 people in average
using the park. This does not include the special events such as 'Schools Out, Party at the Park,' BMX competition, and concerts,” the report says. “The event numbers can range up to 200 people using the park. This summer we saw less numbers using the park due to hot humid weather as well as rain showers. Weekdays proved to be busier than weekends with the exception of some long weekends.” The Party in the Park event kicked off the summer at the park. There were also concerts and the Learn to Skate program — a one-week program for boys and girls — was offered by the municipality which gave instruction to eight skaters. The ROC also offered a one-week YouthARTS camp for boys and girls in the clubhouse and curling club in July. “Kids enjoyed creative arts, water fun and use of the park for skateboarding during breaks,” Thompson said. Kerr described her summer working at the park as an opportunity to connect with a range of people in the community. “It's been a great experience that's helped me in various ways,” she said. Kerr said the arts camp offered the opportunity for a lot of connection with youth and a mentorship opportunity for her. “We were able to take advantage of the facility at every opportunity we had,” she said, adding that during breaks youth would teach each other to skateboard. “It would be encouraging to expand upon this.” Thompson said despite
the success of programming there were still several acts of vandalism at the park and the clubhouse outside of the ROC's hours of operation. Window screens on the back of the clubhouse were damaged, several picnic tables were written on and an eavestrough was ripped off the clubhouse and thrown onto the roof with the solar panels. Littering was also an issue for much of the summer, but the report says there was some improvement on that note toward the end of the summer. The report also says staff noted the park was used for drinking and drug use after hours regularly, with staff continually picking up bottles. Thompson said in the mornings there were often bottles and drug paraphernalia visible. However, she said the police presence has been encouraging throughout the summer. “This year the OPP have been great and working well with park staff. The police have made regular passes through the park and were always available to talk about issues or concerns,” Thompson said. She said police have visited the park to talk about youth skateboard on Main Street and to request the music volume be lowered. Police were also contacted during fighting and bullying incidents. Overall, the report said the partnership has been very beneficial. “ROC sees great value in the mentorship opportunities, events and activities that we have had to offer at the park,” the report says.

PECI Grade 9 students encouraged to WAIT before making decisions Dukes lend assist in helping younger peers realize impact of their choices AdAm BrAmBurger
Playing one of the fastest games on the planet at a high level, the Wellington Dukes know a thing or two about making quick decisions and living with them. With that in mind, PECI youth counsellor Rob Furmidge felt they would be the perfect spokespeople for a project he was working on within the schoolâ€™s walls. A few years back, Furmidge thought of an acronym that he could pass on to students to help them make healthy decisions. He reasoned the word WAIT, or What am I thinking? would be something students could use quickly to focus their minds on good. Two years ago, Furmidgeâ€™s colleague Stacey McErlean (now Dunning) picked up on the phrase and used it as the centrepiece of a grant application to allow the school to host a one-day symposium that offered an anti-bullying message, with
a specific focus on dealing abusive relationships. From that proposal, the school had a number of bracelet displaying the WAIT message and Furmidge was left thinking about how to incorporate the message again into lessons for students. He and the schoolâ€™s guidance counsellors decided they could take the WAIT bracelets and start a campaign of positive messaging, beginning with the Grade 9 students coming into PECI this year. Furmidge explained the schoolâ€™s student success team visited Grade 9 homeroom classes, handed out the bracelets and explained some of the in-school resources available for students to make better choices in their lives. The students were encouraged to wear their WAIT bracelets and take a glance at them when they were faced with a decision. â€œItâ€™s a visual cue,â€? he said. â€œIf theyâ€™re wearing it,

it may give them an opportunity in a split second to change their minds.â€? Thus far, many of the Grade 9 students can be spotted in the school still wearing the bracelets and some suggested they do have real meaning to them. â€œI think a second time before I do things to make better decisions,â€? said Connor Larkin, who said the bracelet could mean not getting into a car with someone heâ€™s not sure has been drinking or using drugs and it helps him when he starts new friendships as well. â€œIf you make friends with someone, you realize the habits they have and that some people may not be the best people to be around,â€? he said. Larkin said that just by seeing the bracelet, he can focus his mind and make decisions without being concerned about being caught up in the moment. â€œYou see it and you stop for a minute to think about it,â€? he said. Larkinâ€™s classmate, Allison Kerr, said she hasnâ€™t used the bracelet in her de-
cision making yet, however, she understands the messaging that her teachers are trying to help promote through it. She said itâ€™s like listening for the little voice in her head that tells her the difference between right and wrong. â€œIf I know inside me something is wrong, I probably shouldnâ€™t do something,â€? she said. â€œThis just reminds you not to do something you wouldnâ€™t normally do.â€? Furmidge said he felt that the positive messaging could apply to any aspect of life, ranging from the need to keep studying to avoiding junk foods. Still, he wanted to be sure that the bracelets would actually be used and not just tossed away. Thatâ€™s where the Dukes came in. As celebrities in this community, he reasoned they are among the young people others in the community may look up to and emulate. â€œWe wanted to put them in sort of a peer mentor role as the models and the Dukes really liked that idea,â€? said Furmidge. He added he hoped they could use the same type of reasoning for their decision making, both on and off of the

ice. Dukes forward Jackson Howe said he liked the fact the Junior A hockey team was asked as it helps them to become more involved and connected with the school many players attend. â€œIt shows the younger kids that we can lead the rest of the school and help them make better decisions,â€? he said. His teammate, Erick Delaurentis, said that in battling for a position on a junior hockey team, the players are constantly watched and evaluated for the decisions they make on and off the ice, so itâ€™s a nice reminder for them. â€œWeâ€™re always battling and our roles can be determined by the decisions we make on and off the ice,â€? he said. â€œItâ€™s always best to make good decisions and go with what you know to be right.â€? Howe said he also thinks the program will help Grade 9 students understand that sometimes sacrifices have to be made in order to accomplish larger goals. Delaurentis said he believes the Dukes can help those Grade 9 participants feel at ease with their involvement in the WAIT programming. Specializing in Tree Preservation

â€œWeâ€™ve seen that a lot of them do come out and watch us, so if they look up and see that weâ€™re wearing them, that should make it easier for them,â€? he said. Kerr agreed with that notion, but also said she felt the campaign was a bit of a special thing as it is only happening in PECI, so that in itself makes it a more appealing campaign. â€œFrom what I know, everyone is wearing them,â€? she said. â€œI donâ€™t think it is uncool, especially since it is only our school doing it.â€? When asked if heâ€™d like to expand the program to the entire school, Furmidge said such an action would probably depend on the budget available to him. For now, he said heâ€™d like to see the bracelets distributed to all of the Grade 9 students first, but if other students could find them useful and supplies last, he does hand out bracelets from his office. â€œThereâ€™s a limited amount of bracelets and weâ€™re trying to start with our Grade 9s because theyâ€™re the most vulnerable,â€? he said. â€œIt could be so they donâ€™t get pressured into drugs or alcohol, or maybe even with social media so they donâ€™t push that button before thinking about what theyâ€™ve typed.â€? Furmidge said if the program is a success, he may even explore the possibility of having a local business sponsor the production of bracelets to get more out there. How does he measure success? Well, itâ€™s a pretty simple equation. â€œIf it works just once to convince someone to make a good decision, well, thatâ€™s good enough for me,â€? Furmidge concluded.

West Lake sisters’ World Without Worms initiative has raised over $18,000
Send a letter...
Deworming program expands into Kenya Staff writer
With the help of a Canadian charity organization, a dedicated pair of university students from West Lake are expanding their deworming program into western Kenya. Abby and Fiona Emdin are founders of the World Without Worms program, a student initiative that to date, has raised over $18,000 for deworming programs in developing countries. After funding a successful deworming program in Bahir, India, World Without Worms announced this week they are teaming up with Community Education Services (CES) Canada, a registered Canadian charity, in order to provide funding support for a deworming project in Kakamega in Kenya’s Western Province. Deworming has been recognized by the United Nations as on of the most cost effective ways to improve health and decrease poverty. A second-year biology major at Queen's University, Fiona said she and her sister were excited at the prospects of founding a new program that will eradicate parasitic worms in the lives of thousands of young people starting next year. “For the past two years we have funded an existing program in India but this is a new experience. We are starting a whole new program with our partners at CES,” Fiona told the Gazette. “Because it's a new project, the Kakamega program requires a lot more planning and effort in that we have to train volunteers and develop interest in the community so it can be set up.” In the fall of 2004 CES Canada was established as a not for profit NGO to support students who had been orphaned by the HIV/Aids pandemic in the rural 1,600 square-kilometre area surrounding Kakamega. With World Without Worm’s support, CES in partnership with Kenya Community Health and District Education Officers is planning to treat 80,000 children at 132 primary schools to begin with, starting in 2013. According to Emdin, the Western province is one of the areas of highest prevalence of worms in Kenya. “Intestinal worms undermine the health of children and affect their ability to learn and one quarter of Kenyan student absenteeism is attributed to abdominal pains due to parasitic infections. Deworming increases school participation and reduces the transmission of infections to other community members,” Emdin said. Kenyan Prime Minister Raila Amolo Odinga said most don't understand the toll living with parasitic worms can take on young people “Many people in the developing world don’t know the importance of child-based worming as
one of the most serious public health-based problems. Children are often too sick and weak to study at school or even to attend school at all. Children with worms are 13% more likely to be illiterate,” Odinga said in a press release. The fundraising efforts of World Without Worms Clubs at Queen’s, McGill and Waterloo Universities and schools across Canada will support this project. In order for the project to be successful, however, The Emdins are asking for the community’s help. To make an online tax

Environmental commissioner calls for IBA protection
Add Ontarioâ€™s environmental commissioner to the list of people who believe Prince Edward Countyâ€™s south shore is not suitable for industrial wind. On Tuesday, Gord Miller released the second part of his annual report to the Ontario legislature and in it, he expressed his belief that Ontarioâ€™s 70 designated Important Bird Areas (IBAS) â€” among them, the
south shore â€” should be protected from such development moving forward. â€œI fully support wind power. Together with energy conservation, renewable sources of energy such as wind are necessary to reduce our reliance on fossil fuels and protect the environment,â€? Miller wrote. â€œHowever, the use of wind power must be balanced by the equally

important goal of protecting birds and bats. To accomplish that goal, we need to be smarter about where we place wind power facilities.â€? Miller cited three â€œsignificant shortcomingsâ€? in the current guidelines for location of such facilities heâ€™d like to see addressed. Besides prohibiting construction in IBAs, Miller would also like to see some protection for migratory bats, noting about 75 per cent of documented bat fatalities at North American turbine facilities are migratory bats. Also, he suggested Ontario should evaluate the cumulative
effects on birds and bats from nearby projects, rather than considering each project in isolation. He said without a cumulative picture, multiple wind projects in one area could â€œtrigger cumulative mortality without necessarily triggering mitigation measures.â€? Miller concluded that â€œit just makes sense to avoid building wind energy projects in these speciesâ€™ most ecologically sensitive locationsâ€? and called on the Ministry of Natural Resources to rectify the perceived shortcomings. -Staff

Pirates remain unbeaten despite slow start Thursday Upstart Deseronto Storm battle back, but are unable to find tying goal late in first official meeting with Picton Chadibbotson Staff writer
The Picton Pirates have extended their win streak to three after doubling up the Deseronto Storm last Thursday. The club ultimately outshot the Storm 50–30 in the 4–2 win, but didn't seem to have the same jump that made them successful in their previous victories. Pirates coach and general manager Ryan Woodward said the team didn't have the start they wanted to. “We were slow out of the gates. The guys had a good week and I think they just weren't as sharp and didn't play quite as well as they had in the previous two games,” he said. “The guys did a good job getting lots of pucks on net, but the execution wasn't there.” It was an inauspicious start for Picton's opponents, with the Storm taking a 10-minute misconduct for inciting an opponent before the drop of the puck. The Pirates then took a pair of penalties to give Deseronto a two-man advantage. The Storm not only didn't capitalize, but quickly gave Picton a twoman advantage of their own. On the ensuing power play Ryan Sizer put the Pirates ahead with Mitchell Smith and Brandon Peever getting the assists. The contest continued to get physical and the building filled with a contentious atmosphere as the Storm continued a parade to the penalty box to groans from fans and the coaching staff. The Pirates maintained their one-goal lead for the better part of the period, but the tone seemed to change after a big hit delivered by Deseronto's Shane Winner. The hit was deemed an illegal check to the head and Winner was given a five-minute major and a game misconduct. The Storm got some life just 23 seconds later when Cody Stapley stole the puck at his own blue line and made a nice move to beat Adam Wood and tie the game with a shorthanded marker. Woodward said his team's response following a deflating shorthanded goal was solid. “We're not going to panic. We know it's a 60minute game. We were disappointed with the effort in

the first period and we thought it got a little better as the game went on,” he said. “Special teams are usually one of our strong points. The play on the goal, there was a mistake made, but that's going to happen with a young group that's being given lots of responsibility.” Woodward said the only thing there is to do in that situation is coach and help players understand where they went wrong. “The boys responded fine, they rolled up their sleeves and got back to work,” he said. The Pirates got back the goal back under a minute later when Jack Davison tipped a Braeden Walsh point shot past Storm goalie Dan Corrigan. To begin the second stanza the Pirates got into some trouble and only some incredible goaltending work from Wood — including a sequence that saw the goaltender scramble completely out of the net only to deny an opennet chance with a well-

placed stick — preserved the Picton lead. After the flurry the Pirates managed to give themselves some insurance with a timely goal from Jeremiah Doherty — his first
junior tally — assisted by Nolan Van Vlack and Brian Bunnett. The teams traded several chances, but the early goal was the only marker of the second period.

Sizer scored his second of the game to increase the Picton lead to three 12:22 into the third, but 26 seconds later Deseronto d-man Bobby Breadman scored a power-play goal to narrow the gap. However, the Pirates held Deseronto off the score sheet for the final eight minutes for the 4–2 win. “The players learned a lesson. I tell them about staying focused and never being too high or too low and just always level-headed,” Woodward said. “You can't look too deep into wins at this time of the season, it's a long year and anybody can beat anybody if you come to the rink and work.” He said Thursday was a bit of a scare for the players and they know they have to keep their focus. “They need to make sure they keep their focus no matter how they've played a certain team in the past. I fully expect this team is going to have some bumps in the road at times,” he said. “Thursday was a les-
son and we'll take the positives from the negatives and move forward.” Thursday's contest was the club's only game of the week and the organization took the opportunity to do some team building. Woodward said players got together for some bowling in Belleville. “We're big on team chemistry and building camaraderie in the dressing room,” he said. “It's a good opportunity to get away and I think the guys had a lot of fun with it.” The club also held practices on Sunday and Tuesday in preparation for back-to-back games against Amherstview in Picton tonight at 7:30 and the Panthers tomorrow at 8 p.m. in Port Hope. “It's going to be a difficult week. We've got a lot of back-to-backs in our schedule this year on Thursday and Friday nights and this is our first test,” Woodward said. “We just need to worry about Amherstview and come to the rink ready to play 60 minutes.”

If there were an instruction manual offering lessons to be learned by a young Junior hockey team, you would almost certainly find a couple of chapters contained within that deal with experiences gained by the Wellington Dukes this past weekend. In the chapter called 'Playing a full 60-minute game,' the Dukes proved they need to hit the books as a last minute goal in Aurora on Saturday night undid what was, until that point, a fine road effort. On Friday, the club studied and took to heart 'Battling back on home ice' as they erased an 3-0 deficit to shock the Stouffville Spirit going away 8-3. Only eight games into the 2012-2013 OJHL season, only time will tell if these lessons learned by the Dukes (4-4-0) stick and the hockey club will be a better team for the effort. Wellington coach and general manager Marty Abrams agreed the club learned a hard lesson in the values of playing a full andcomplete contest in their 5-3 setback at the Aurora Community Centre Saturday evening. “Absolutely, there was hopefully a lesson learned,” Abrams said. “We really played well and deserved a better fate. I liked the effort but there were a couple of miscues at the end of the game and it really cost us.” Wellington opened the scoring in the second when Abbott Girduckis bagged his second of the campaign at the 10:01 mark of the second stanza. That lead was increased to 2-0 when Joe McKeown set up Girduckis for his second of the game inside the first minute of the third period. A pair of Tiger goals would shortly there after erase the Wellington lead but Cam Nichol got the Dukes back in the driver ‘s seat when he redirected a pretty Mike Soucier feed to make it 3-2 in favour of Wellington at 10:52. The lead was short lived however as Mike Sones made the Dukes pay for los-

ing a defensive zone faceoff as he was left alone in front and beat Hayden Lavigne at 12:03. The squads stayed deadlocked at 3-3 until the final minute of play when Tyler Shaw's knuckling point blast beat Lavigne top shelf with just 39 seconds remaining. Daniel Clairmount beat the buzzer, blasting the puck into the vacated Wellington cage with just two seconds left to make it a 5-3 Tigers win. On a positive note, Girduckis had a pair and a three goal weekend while showing why he was the 2011-2012 Empire B Junior C rookie of the year. “Abbott was outstanding, he got to the dirty areas we've been asking him to go to and he was rewarded,” Abrams noted. On the down side, Lavigne was left to his own devices more than once and was unable come up with a routine Junior A save when it was needed at the ultimate time. “The biggest advice I give any goalie is you are never remembered for the saves you make, you are remembered for the goals you let in. We have to reduce the number the goals that are stoppable...In the big save department, we are leading, in the routine saves department, we need to work at it,” Abrams said. While Lavigne was saddled with a tough loss on Saturday, the 16-year-old managed to come up with some
timely saves on Friday night as Wellington came back on the Stouffville Spirit 8-3. Down 3-0 barely into the second, Wellington's hopes, to an outsider anyway, were looking grim. But Abrams implored his club not to give into the visitors in spite of the early Stoufville success. “After the first, the message was simple,” Abrams said in describing his first intermission address to the hockey club. “We just needed to keep putting one skate in front of the other. We out chanced them 2-1 and there was no sense burying our heads, we just needed to keep going.” Even after Wellington went down 3-0 on Dylan Savory's goal at 1:11, Wellington maintained their aggressive style and it paid off for the locals in spades. Soucier notched his first junior goal at 3:30 and that was followed by McKeown's first of his Jr. A career just 60 seconds later to make it 3-2 Spirit. The club's leading point getter Erick Delaurentis scored the game-tying goal at 11:25 and then setup what would be the game winner off Girduckis' stick at 15:07 to make it 4-3 Wellington. Finally, Wellington capped off the frenzied second period scoring when Jan Kaminsky bagged the club's fifth of the frame at 19:25. In the final 20 minutes, Kaminsky, Soucier and Delaurentis all found the range behind Spirit starter
Knick Dawe to make it an 83 final. “We got a couple of offensive breaks in the second that we didn't get in the first and it really loosened things up and guys started playing with more confidence,” Abrams said. Among those that swelled up into snipers Friday night were Soucier, Girduckis and McKeown who all notched milestone markers. “All three of those guys have worked hard day in and day out and had lots of opportunities, so it's nice to see them clicking,” Abramssaid. Wellington will visit Stouffville this evening for a 7:30 p.m. Puck drop before hosting the Trenton Golden Hawks Friday night at the Essroc Arena. Round the 'Roc: The Dukes welcomed back centreman Brian Bunnett to the lineup Saturday in Aurora. Bunnett had been sidelined for over a year after breaking his leg in a car accident in June 2011 and the forward continues to play with the Picton Pirates in an attempt to get backinto playing shape...While his skating stride is developing, Bunnett showed no rust in the faceoff circle and won over a dozen draws Saturday...Wellington will workout netminder Matt Larose this week and may sign him. The 1992- birth netminder has played for Alberni andTrail of the BCHL. With a new netminder coming in, Andrew Pearson was farmed out to the Picton Pirates.

Attendance figures exceeded targets set by organizers, MacKenzie says TASTE, from page 1
DeMille was pleased to see that all the elements in his picnic basket — a surprise to all of the chefs — were seasonal and went together well, it was just a matter of figuring out what to do with it. "You just go through your files of recipes in your head and think about what you would do and pull that out. You have to use your knowledge and experience and just be like 'Okay, this is what we're doing." DeMille admitted he had some nerves with the big crowd and the toughest time constraint he'd ever seen in the competition, but noticed all three chefs got food plated and served to the judges. Royce, the chef at Waupoos Estates Winery and a partner in justcook.ca, said it was a tough task and he felt that DeMille got one more element into his meal than the other two chefs. Still, he said he had a blast performing with the other chefs, even if he didn't see it as a performance. "We had a lot of fun. I didn't even look up once. I didn't look at anybody, I zoned out and I just wanted to cook," he said. "It's what we do." Royce said the event rightly put a spotlight on local food, which he said is becoming a bit of a redundant term in his kitchen and for many of the people who return to Taste year after year. "I shied away from writing local stuff on the menu a year-and-a-half ago. People who come here should just know that's what we're about in the county. There's no sense in going 'local, local, local' because that's what we do here." Chaves, Royce's business partner at www.justcook.ca, said while he and his rivals got big cheers for

possible. "The farmers are the
but if you plant them in poor soil, they will perform poorly. This time of year is the right time to take a good look at your soil and determine what it needs to produce healthy plants. Soil needs oxygen and water. If it is compacted, it cannot get sufficient amounts of either. If you find your soil to be compacted, use a pitch fork or a gardening fork to poke some holes in it keeping away from delicate plant roots. Then add some compost and gently dig it in to the top layer of soil. Leave a couple of inches of compost on top for the worms to take down into the soil as well. Never walk on wet garden soil. If you are lucky enough to find some bagged leaves in your neighbor’s front yard, ask if you can have them and be sure they aren’t black walnut leaves. Take them home, run over them a couple of times with the lawnmower and spread them on your garden. Use natural bark mulch to keep the moisture in the soil and the weeds out. Compost is the best
amendment for most soils. It aids in soil friability and adds nutrients. If you are not composting, you should resolve to get started right away. You don’t need any fancy equipment to build a compost pile. You can dig a hole in the ground or make a bin with straw bales and a tarp over it or use any other number of simple solutions. Be careful to use only garden waste in an open compost pile to keep critters away. Kitchen scraps need to go into a closed composter. The best one I have found is the good old fashioned black plastic one that costs about $20. They can take a pile of kitchen refuse and turn it into black gold in no time. If you don’t think you have enough kitchen waste to compost, think again. We are a family of two and I make numerous trips to the composter each week with lettuce that has passed its prime, trimmings from fresh vegetables, potato and onion peels, fruit that is over ripe and even coffee grounds which heat up the compost pile. Layer the
pile with some carbon from dead plant material and some water. Keep the pile damp and it will cook. If you are fortunate enough to have a sheep farmer nearby like I am, adding a bit of sheep manure to the pile will really make it cook. Give it a turn every now and then and pretty soon you will have compost. There has been a pretty active discussion on our Ontario Master Gardeners’ blog on the subject of soil testing with Master Gardeners on both sides of the discussion. If your plants are healthy you probably don’t need to test your soil. If your plants are struggling and have been struggling even before our recent drought, then you should test your soil to see what’s going on. It may be nutrient deficient or, depending upon where it came from, it could have detrimental chemicals in it. Accredited soil testing labs for Ontario can be found at www.omfra.gov.on.ca. This has been a tough year on lawns. If your lawn still has brown patches after the rains we have had,

ones who provide me with the food, all I do is put it together and present it on a plate. They're the ones who need credit today, not me, not Scott, not even Matt. They're the ones who need to be recognized as people and ambassadors of farmto-table cuisine." MacKenzie said the feedback he's received from some of food producers this year already has been favourable, both through the farmers' market and through the vendor exhibitions within the gates. He said this year, the exhibitor base might have been down somewhat, but there was an effort to showcase quality and provide each exhibitor with the best footprint possible to showcase the food and drink county residents are proud of. He said next year, Taste the County will look to continue the transformation it attempted this year through the rebrand to "Taste Community Grown" by looking at attracting more interactive exhibits and tying more events into the promotion of local businesses and products. "We're really looking to adhere to that new brand mark and look how we can extend it," he said. "We're looking within to see what else we can do to celebrate what we're growing here and why we're so proud to call this county our home." Outside of recognizing the producers directly, MacKenzie said Taste also owes much gratitude to a large volunteer base, which lends enthusiasm to stage such a showcase. "We can't do this without our volunteer base," he said. "They work so hard in concert with us and I don't think the event would have the kind of pick up or traction we get without them."
Soil quality can have a major impact on the health and growth of any plant
We recently got a question from a homeowner in Wellington about her Rudbeckia. The photo she sent us showed plants with very crispy leaves. I thought the problem was probably caused by severe drought this year and that if she cut them back they would likely return next year, but she explained that they had done this for the last four years. She then went on to say that her house and garden sit on rock with not much soil on top and that a landscaper had put down a bit of not very good top soil, covered it with landscape cloth and then put in the plants and mulched over the cloth. She realized that it was a very bad idea to build a garden this way and that it was likely that the landscape cloth merely deflected what water there was this year away from the soil. She told me later that it had taken her more than one hour to dig an 8” deep hole to put in a chrysanthemum. Her problem is the soil or lack thereof and the manner in which her gar-
ASK A MASTER GARDENER
den was constructed. I am not a fan of landscape cloth as I find it generally ends up looking just awful as whatever soil is on top washes off and the cloth is peeking out all over the garden. Most landscape cloth doesn’t let much water in either. Her only solution is to remove the landscape cloth and build raised beds with good soil if she wants a garden. Soil is the most important component of any garden. You can spend a lot of money on beautiful plants
like mine does, then you may have grubs. Killing grubs requires nematodes which need warm weather to survive. So, this time of year, your best option is to aerate the brown patches, over seed and put down your winter lawn fertilizer. Remember that fall fertilization is working on the root system and strength of the overall plant so it will have less nitrogen than a spring fertilizer has. Any good garden supply or farm supply will be able to fix you up with the proper fertilizer for this time of year. You can top dress over-seeded areas with compost or a very light layer of top soil to allow the seed to take hold. Take care of your soil and the soil will take care of your plants. - Kathy MacPherson is a member of the Prince Edward County Master Gardeners.

Exchange student arrives from Ecuador Visa issues slowed Rotary guest’s arrival AdAmBrAmBurger
Nearly a full month into the school year, Picton Rotarians finally had a chance to meet Leonardo Nieto Tuesday afternoon. The 17-year-old native of Santa Rosa, Ecuador arrived in Canada this week and attended the club’s regular meeting before being registered in school. The club’s exchange program co-ordinator Frank Wright said the timing wasn’t quite what either party had hoped for. “He’s here seven weeks late because Leonardo had great difficulty getting a visa,” Wright explained. He said the problem lie in the fact that Canada does not have an embassy or a consulate in the South American country, so Nieto’s paperwork had to be sent to Bogota, the capital of Colombia and Port Au Prince, Haiti before Canadian officials were able to grant his visit. Nieto explained a bit about his home for the club, telling its members about its banana and rice plantations and a modern new airport just built in Santa Rosa, a town of 60,000 people. Almost immediately, Nieto noticed one difference between his home country and Canada. “ I want to stay here a lot of the time, just I have a problem, it's really cold,” he said as he joked with Rotarians that he didn’t

know what February will hold since people have told him it’s really cold. According to Nieto, in his home country students don’t have a grade system similar to the one in Canadian schools, but instead, they choose courses to study based on the career they want to pursue. For Nieto, that career is law and his aspiration to be a lawyer is part of the reason he wanted to come to Canada and learn more about the legal system here. “It was one of my dreams for a long time to come to Canada,” he said. “I find all of the people really friendly. In Ecuador we have a different culture, and that’s why I’m here, I want to learn more about all of your cultures.” An athlete, Nieto says he plays a lot of soccer as it is the most-played sport in his country, but he’s also an
avid swimmer. He said he hope that while he was in Canada, he could try something like snowboarding. Nieto said he noticed differences in the way homes were constructed in Canada compared to Ecuador — here they are made more from wood and steel, where there tile is a staple — and in the cuisine Canadians eat. The exchange student is now living with the Philip family in Bloomfield and he will also have stays with the Leclercs and Finnegans before returning back to Ecuador at the end of his year in the county. Thus far, Wright said Nieto appears to be a good fit for the program. “He’s a nice young man. He’s well chosen,” he said. Meanwhile, the club has one of its own exchange students abroad this year as Jeff Finnegan is in Brazil.
County teen eyes future in front of camera Rogers selected for modeling convention AdAm BrAmBurger Staff writer
Alyssa Rogers might not be the most recognized girl in Prince Edward County, but she’s hoping one day her face may be seen across Canada and beyond. The 13 year old, who recently moved here from Sudbury was spotted by talent scouts selecting talent to attend the Canadian Model and Talent Convention in Markham next May. Rogers had been in dance all her life and about five years ago, she attended a modeling convention and found an interest in it. “I just tried something new and I really enjoyed doing it,” she said. “I just really enjoy being in front of a camera and wearing different clothes.” At that initial convention, she had some interest from talent scouts, but ultimately the travel was too much so she just continued to dance and to do photo shoots occasionally. Rogers attended a session in Kingston with the Ameri-
can scouting company Pro Scout and did quite well, with them showing interest in her. Given that confidence, she and her mom decided to look at the Canadian-based Mode Elle agency, which is situated in Belleville. Of the 75-100 people auditioning for a spot at the Canadian Model and Talent Convention through the company locally, Rogers was one of 14 people invited to attend. She was also told that only 400 would be chosen from across Canada. Judging by those two turnouts, Rogers is hopeful

she might be able to attract some serious interest come the convention in May. “Both of them told her she had a unique look,” said her mom Carrie Anne Rogers. In signing up or the event, the participants are able to choose some of the workshops they’re attending while they’re there and Rogers has elected to do commercial monologue, photography, and dance. Moving forward, Rogers said she is hopeful she will one day have a career in modeling and in dance, which is a talent she hopes can set her apart from some of the other people looking for work in a tough business to crack. Since the auditions, Rogers has been participating in an accredited 18-week course through Mode Elle which she says will help her gain confidence and develop her talents. The Rogers say models attending the convention are encouraged to practice their public presentation by encouraging businesses and individuals to sponsor them through program advertising.

St. Andrew’s celebrates accessibility Federal grant helped church improve access to building, interior facilities AdAm BrAmBurger
St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church threw a party Sunday afternoon and it was able to fill nearly every seat within its sanctuary. That’s nothing new as the church has been actively trying to be inclusive and welcoming to a broad range of congregants and members of the general public, but perhaps some people came through the doors Sunday that previously would have had difficulty entering the building. Sunday’s party was to celebrate the completion of an accessibility project to construct access ramps to both its floors and add accessible washroom and kitchenette facilities. Over a year ago, the church applied for a $50,000 federal Evanblin Accessibility Grant, and its congregants also had to raise substantial funds to make the renovations possible. The grant was approved and the work took place over the past year. Rev. Lynne Donovan said some congregants made a special effort to lead the project. Al Law was pivotal in overseeing the onerous task of putting the application together, while Ron Thomson served as the project manager. “Honestly, of all the summers to undergo a construction project like this one, it had to be the hottest summer on record,” Donovan said. “Ron was here every day diligently overseeing every aspect of the project.” She also credited contractor John McPherson and his team at Stick and Stones Contracting for going above and beyond while working on the job. Thomson also offered praise for them, noting the job provided unusual challenges like a crumbling foundation, yet they brought the project in on time and close to the budget. Prince Edward-Hastings MP Daryl Kramp was on hand to formally see what the government’s $50,000

contribution helped build. He said he believed the grant succeeded because of St. Andrew’s attempts to reach out to its community. “One of the defining points for me that really set it apart and one of the reasons you were successful is that it was so multifaceted,” he said. “The congregation has made this building so accessible to many groups and organizations in our area.” Kramp said the granting program is oversubscribed by a ratio of about 1,000 to 1, so he added the competition was very still. “We have so many needs across the country and when I sit in the minister’s office, we’re not given the opportunity to say ‘this one, this one, and this one,’ it doesn’t work this way. It has to go on the merit of the program itself.” Kramp had a tour prior to speaking at the party and he said he felt the project really reflected the spirit of the application provided. Donovan said the completion is another step in an
overhaul that saw the church rip out its pews and overhaul the entire sanctuary area. “Now, thanks to the generosity of members and a substantial grant from the government of Canada, we’ve been able to achieve this goal of accessibility and it is no small feat.” Donovan said buildings, like St. Andrew’s, are more than just a space and access is very important. “Buildings are never just bricks and mortar. As you know, they are symbols. They are places of refuge and destinations for the community,” she said. “We are now thrilled our building is able to support our vision for friendship and inclusiveness, not just for members of our own congregation, but our entire community.” The party featured a host of musical talent including Tabby Johnson, Mark Despault, Tony Sylvestri, Cole Norton, Tom Dietzel, and Colleen Galway as well as photography by Phil Norton and Law.

DUNLOP- Joyce (Cledgett) In loving memory of a beautiful lady whose heart was full of love for her family. Your smile and laughter were so contagious. We will never forget how your eyes would sparkle! And your face would light up when you spoke of, or were in the presence of your famly. To see your smile, to hear your laughter and feel your arms of love wrapped around us, would be so healing for us as we deeply yearn for a taste of more than memories. Until we meet again Mom. We miss you from the deepest part of our hearts. Love Dori, Richard, Michelle, Matthew, Tamara, Liam & Pierce EVERALL, In loving memory of a dear Mom and Grandmother, Elizabeth "Liz" Everall, who passed away October 12, 2005. I glanced into the mirror Never dreaming that I'd see A face, one so familiar Yet you were looking back at me. I saw your loving smile, so warm That crinkle round your eyes I heard your gentle laughter Your often soothing sighs. While reading stories to my children I heard your voice in mine, I pause and think of years gone by another place and time. You nurtured me and watched me grow Held me when I creid An through I often stumbled, You were always by my side You shared the love of God with me Taught me how to pray And often when unsure You helped me find my way. I'm often told I'm just like you A compliment I treasure For within my heart I know we share a love beyond all measure. Love you and miss you Mom, Love, Karen and family.
In loving memory of a dear son and brother “Tony” Anthony Arthur, who passed away suddenly October 19, 1973. Do not stand at my grave and weep; I am not there, I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow, I am the diamond glints on snow, I am the sunlight on ripened grain, I am the gentle autumn’s rain. When you awaken in the morning’s hush, I am the swift uplifting rush Of quiet birds in circled flight. Do not stand at my grave and cry; I am not there, I did not die. Lovingly remembered by his family.
AULTHOUSE, Roy Francis
In loving memory of a dear husband, father and grandfather who passed away October 10, 2000. We cannot lose those we love, For they will always stay, In all that’s bright and beautiful, Around us every day. Wonderful memories woven in gold, This is a picture we tenderly hold, Deep in our hearts a memory is kept, To love, to cherish and to never forget, Sadly missed along life’s way, Quietly remembered every day, No longer in our life to share, But in our hearts he is always there. Always remembed by Bernice and family
Tyler W. G. McConnell May 13, 1992 - October 1, 2010 The day you left us was heartbreak and sorrow. The day you left us we saw no tomorrow. It’s been two years now and we still don’t understand. But we know that God had you by the hand. We hear your song and we stop and listen. For “Smile” is a sign, we know what we’re missin’. We still don’t want to believe it happened at all. We’re still praying and waiting for you to call. The day you left us your family and friends came together. From that day forward we remember you always and forever. Till we meet again, Love you always and forever Doug, Dawn, Brandon, Amanda, Kirk
EVERALL For Liz, who left us October 12, 2005. Always loved, never forgotten; Sorely missed by all. Alan, Karen, Lisa and families
McCONNELL, Tyler For you will forever walk softly in my heart and in my mind. In loving memory of my son Tyler, who went to Heaven October 1, 2010. My Precious Son Those Shadows they fall My heart it bleeds I still can't believe You were taken from me I wake up and wonder Why you are gone I feel so empty and all alone Sometimes I feel you near Your touch wipes away My bitter tears I try not to question What God has done I picture you sitting In Heaven up above Everyday I say a prayer God bless and keep me Until I join you there. Your loving Dad (poem written by Teresa Shelton Bright) SHEIL-Kenneth (Ken) In loving memory of a dear husband, father and grandfather who passed away October 7, 2007. Along the road to yesterday That leads us straight to you Are memories of the happy days Together we once knew. And always every evening We seem to have a way Of wandering back to meet you On the road to yesterday. Always remembered and loved by Sandra, Glenn, Mickie, Michelle, Tom and Sawyer.

Merriam says private landowners can play a role in preserving habitat Stewardship projects can help species survive JasonParks
According to the keynote speaker at the Eastern Ontario Stewardship Collaborative information session (E.O.S.C.) Tuesday evening, the the battle to preserve habitat will not be won in parks, reserves, special areas and significant places, it will be won or lost in the landscape between them. Dr. Gray Merriam presented at E.O.S.C.'s first official foray into Prince Edward County and offered a highly informative and comprehensive presentation entitled “Landscape Level Stewardship.” The E.O.S.C. was formed this past spring and is a new collaborative of seven existing and well established organizations including Quinte Conservation, Ducks Unlimited, Cataraqui Regional Conservation Hastings, Prince Edward, L&A and Frontenac Stewardship Council. E.O.S.C. project co-ordinator Lesley Rudy said her group’s purpose is to connect landowners with resources that will help them to continue be good stewards of the land. “If you consider that most land in Southern Ontario is in private ownership, if you want to protect the landscape, obviously we need to work with private landowners,” Rudy said. Tree planting, shoreline restoration and wetland restoration projects, nest boxes, fencing to exclude cattle in sensitive areas are
taking action Dr. Gray Merriam speaks at the Eastern Ontario Stewardship Collective information session at Picton Town Hall Tuesday night, telling people that their actions can go a long way to helping their environment. (Jason Parks/Gazette staff)
some of the projects that the E.O.S.C. has helped landowners start in the past few months. Theses are the types of local stewardship projects Merriam commended in his presentation but he maintained a broader look at governmental policy needed to be examined and policies have as much negative effect on habitat as other factors including climate change. A retired professor specializing in ecology at both the University of Texas and Carleton University as well as affiliations with several other International Univer-
sities, Merriam said to him, stewardship is broken into two parts — conservation and facilitation of natural processes and connectivity across a well scaled management unit. In terms of what stewardship is not, supplying amenities for humans is not an aspect of landscape stewardship. “Landscape stewardship is aimed at keeping the landscape in good condition and as humans, we need to fit ourselves into that landscape in order to keep it functioning well,” Merriam said. “We are not doing landscape steward-
ship just to produce dog walking channels across the landscape.” In his teachings, Merriam has promoted the need for connectivity between subpopulations of organisms in order for these groups to survive and thrive. For example, at Yellowstone National Park there are hundreds of herds of elk and deer that live primarily inside the boundaries of the 2.2-million- acre park. However, the food and cover needs of some of these herds change during certain parts of the year and
the animals need to move freely outside the park in order to survive. “They have continual requirements which can be qualitatively quite different in the appropriate time in order to get through their life history. If you want them to survive, we have to take the requirements into account,” Merriam said. But, as humans continue to encroach, habitat becomes sliced and diced, eliminating organisms ability to move from one patch habitat to another. “There are degrees of separation put into the landscape and as humans have more input, those separations become more and more severe,” Merriam said. These separations can wipe out subpopulations short order, according to a digital model Merriam offered to the 45 onlookers Tuesday evening. Imagining the model details subpopulations of chipmunks in a farm woodlot, with connectivity paths uninterrupted, the populations continue to survive for 100 years However, once the paths are severed, say by a large highway, the survivability rate decreases dramatically. Showing an instance where three populations were in close proximity with one another yet completely isolated, the survivability of the populations was cut down to three and four years. Merriam also used the worldwide decline of frogs to illustrate his point further. Climate change is among the factors leading to the decline but habitat degradation is occurring through the partitioning of ecosystems large and small.
“If you are leopard frog and you need to get from your breeding pond to a hay field and someone has built a strip mall in between the two, you are in trouble,” Merriam said. The strip mall and the roads that lead to it dissect habitat and are part of urban planning policies that are place for reasons other then the continuation of a subpopulation of frogs. “Subdivisions and other urban planning policies have all these effects and we know that they do but we are not willing to put priority on frog habitat when the option available to us is to increase out tax base so we put the subdivision in regardless,” Merriam said. “This all comes out of a policy that advocates a Consumer economy policy, and this policy is working through other policies to destroy frog habitat.” Before stewardship can effectively take place, the culture of those that set policy needs to be changed. “When we start talking about stewardship, we are not just talking about bird nesting houses, if we wanted to talk about what the main driving forces are of ecosystem function are in Southern Ontario, the first long list will be policies, it won't be biological things at all. Biology is buried underneath policies. The meeting also featured talks from Andy Margetson of the Prince Edward County Stewardship Council, Tim Gray of Trees Ontario and Chris Delage of Ducks Unlimited.

Family farmers at Lift Haus try to grow perfect Pinot
One of our favourite drives in the county on a sunny day with the top down on the Smart Car is along the winding Closson Road nestled right in the heart of county. Along with the obvious fun of driving on such a road is the fact that there are several wineries along this particular route. I've previously written about the Grange and Lacey Estates and today we are going to visit the Lift Haus winery, literally right across the road from Lacey Estates. Lift Haus winery is a family run "farm" vineyard that started in 2002 and just opened its tasting room at the winery on Closson Road in May 2010. With only five acres of land under cultivation so far for grapes, the Evans family, Frank and Bonnie along with their sons, Ed and Kyle, and their wives Kelly and Eva have put a new look on the idea of the “family farm”. The idea to start a vineyard, and ultimately a winery, took seed back in 2002 in what started as a dinner table discussion and soon blossomed into a quest to find the perfect piece of land that would be ideal for growing grapes. They had in mind that the kind of wine they wanted to make was Pinot noir. Despite Pinot noir's reputation as the heartbreak grape, for them there is nobility of taste to this red wine that sets it apart from other red wines. Pinot noir derives its reputation as a difficult grape to grow due to its thin translucent skins which make it

more prone to bunch rot and other diseases, sensitivity to light exposure, cropping levels, and the yeast variety used for fermentation. However, driven by their entrepreneurial spirit and motivated by the sheer challenge, they pushed on in search of the perfect land for them to grow their Pinot noir. They eventually found a 60-acre farm on Closson Road in Hillier which had the soil they were looking for to grow vinifera grapes to make Burgundy style wines. The soil is called Hillier clay loam and is high in lime content. Similarities have been drawn between Prince Edward County and that of Burgundy, France which are both considered to be ideal, cool climate growing regions. They purchased the farm and began their first planting that year. They then decided

derived from the amount of constant heavy lifting that occurs on a daily and weekly basis at the vineyard and is representative of the amount of sheer labour intensive attention and work that goes into the nurturing of their crops. They went with the German spelling of house, "haus", to reflect the six years spent living in Holland and Germany while growing up stationed in Europe on the NATO base. At Lift Haus winery the Evans grow, nurture, harvest, age and bottle their wines on site in order to present everyone the best that their terroir has to offer. I would encourage anyone out and about sipping in the county to take a leisurely drive along scenic Closson Road and make Lift Haus one of your stops!

to add other varieties to the mix in order to appeal to more than one wine connoisseur while still maintaining Pinot noir as their primary grape. Well into the planting of the first acre they learned that the Pinot noir fruit quality peaks after 15-20 years of planting and as their intention is to be in the wine making industry for many years to come this seemed like the perfect venture. Real "roots" in the County, the Evans family heritage extends back four generations. These roots run deep in both the county and the tourism industry as they have run a bed and breakfast for many years. Now Ed and Kyle have taken on the role of winemaker with mentoring from other more established winemakers in the area. The whole family pitches in to do the work. It took them a few years to settle on the winery's name and they all finally agreed that Lift Haus winery was the perfect name for them. The name is primarily

Renovating bathrooms is commonly at the top of home improvement to-do lists. Though some rooms around the house may remain timeless, bathrooms, like kitchens, show their age (and era) much more easily, which could be why homeowners are always on the lookout for new ideas. Although many people may dream about creating a spa-type oasis in their homes, not everyone is lucky enough to have a large bathroom, much less a large budget for a full-scale renovation. Small bathrooms are common, particularly in older homes, but they needn't force homeowners to compromise on style when renovating. Small bathrooms may be a half-bath on a main home level or even a full bath, depending on the home. By thinking creatively, homeowners can maximize their spaces and redo bathrooms in ways that bring out their best assets. • When space is at a premium, it's best to look for fixtures and items that fit with the scale of the bathroom. Although you may want a large vanity and cabinet in which to hide all of your toiletries, this simply may not be practical -- taking up most of the bathroom real estate. Instead, look for elegant pedestal sinks that have a much smaller profile. They'll also help you control the clutter in the bathroom because there won't be anywhere to hide it. • Use optical illusions to make the bathroom appear
more roomy. For example, lay tile diagonally to create the impression of space. A large mirror will reflect the room back and make it appear much larger than it really is. • Select lighter hues in paint colors and accessories. Dark paints and fixtures could make the room feel cramped. Dark colors are generally used to make spaces feel more cozy. In a small bathroom, it may make the space feel claustrophobic. Instead, think light and bright and the room will instantly feel more airy. • Minimize wall hangings and keep fixtures smaller. Filling the walls with knickknacks may contribute to clutter and make the space appear closed in. Use decorative items sparingly. • If possible, store towels in a closet outside of the bathroom. This way you won't have to devote space inside the bathroom to a closet, leaving more room for other things. • While some people like the thought of a separate bath and shower, in smaller bathrooms this may not be possible. Instead, look for a combined shower and bath, or select a walk-in shower with a much smaller profile. • Windows are often welcome in bathrooms because of the ventilation they provide, but they could be a hindrance in smaller bathrooms because they take up prime wall space. Cover a window in a shower stall to free up space. Just be sure to in-
A frameless shower can take up less space in a small bathroom.
stall a venting fan to reduce moisture in the bathroom. • Maximize wall space if you need storage. Find cabinets that will fit beneath windows or be able to fit in thin areas between sinks and toilets. Over the toilet is prime area for cabinetry. • Consider a frameless shower. This is a partitioned area of the bathroom that's set aside for the shower and is typically only cordoned off by a thin wall or piece of glass. Or a shower with no walls at all is the ultimate in space-saving. The entire bathroom floor is decked out in tile, and a portion is sloped toward a shower drain. • Think about installing a skylight if you prefer natural light, but there is no room for a traditional window. Thinking creatively can help turn a cramped bathroom into a space-saving and well-designed room homeowners desire.
