Council considers White Pine reports incomplete Municipality to withhold commentary on industrial wind project pending further information Chad Ibbotson

Council has declared the heritage and protected properties assessments conducted by Stantec Consulting Ltd. for the White Pines Wind Project incomplete and has taken a clear stance of non-support for the project. Council voted Tuesday not to support the project and passed a motion that will be forwarded to the province saying the municipality will not submit its complete list of municipal consultation comments until the revised reports are received from Stantec after which council reserves the right to make further comments. The comments would have included what have become council's standard comments on large-scale wind energy projects – calling for cost recovery provisions, traffic management plans and regular pay-

ments to the municipality – however, staff said the municipality would not be able to provide their complete comments without complete and accurate reports from the consultant. Engineering, development and works commissioner Robert McAuley said the municipality was informed of the inaccuracies in the reports by the heritage advisory committee. “What we're saying is our review is not complete. We believe that documentation is incomplete and inaccurate and they have to revise that document before we can give complete consultation consideration,” McAuley said. “Until Stantec does give that information we consider the review documents to be incomplete.” McAuley said upon hearing of the inaccuracies the municipality conducted its own inspection of the Stantec heritage report and

conclude that the reports were indeed incomplete. “Until that problem is resolved we are telling the ministry we are not closing the book on comments because a very important piece of the puzzle has not been examined properly,” he said. While council ultimately voted to include a clause stating its stance against the project, it came as an amendment after council heard from several members of the community. Alliance to Protect Prince Edward County president Gord Gibbons said council had two options to take a stronger stand against wind energy projects. He said council could have considered requesting a moratorium on wind energy projects or, as they ultimately did, could outright say they did not support the White Pines Project. “Despite the Green En-

E S TAT E

ergy Act, council continues to have a responsibility to represent the views of Prince Edward County citizens,” Gibbons said. “A number of councils elsewhere have used municipal consultation as an opportunity to direct their dissatisfaction with current energy policies and regulations. They speak out whenever they can.” Gibbons said the motion was in keeping with council's earlier motions not to support industrial wind turbine projects in the county. Orville Walsh, speaking on behalf of the County Coalition for Safe and Appropriate Green Energy (CCSAGE), also urged council to take a stance against the development. Walsh said the two major concerns with the project were it's potential negative impact on human health and potential impact on the environment.

SECTION

“I think I can say with a very great degree of confidence that many people in the southern part of the county do not want to be part of this experiment,” he said. “Until the health issues can be satisfactorily resolved CCSAGE believes that wind turbines of this proposed size at a minimum should be located at least two kilometres from a home or business.” McAuley said it was not known when Stantec would come forward with revised reports and said the consultant would likely be dealing with the province as there is no requirement to submit the reports to the municipality. “We don't know the manner at which that report will come back. Stantec have indicated they would provide it to us, but from my information they are not under an apparent obligation to do that,” he said.

City struggles to find way to pay cost of infrastructure repairs Jason Parks

Staff writer

Could Prince Edward County residents travelling into Belleville via Hwy 62 find themselves dipping into their pockets to pay a toll? It may be a long way off, but the City of Belleville is in desperate need of repairing or replacing the CPR bridge on Bay Bridge Road just south of Dundas Street and one of the options available to the city would be to pay for the estimated $7-10 million project through tolls. City council on Monday approved a motion to spend $157,917.50 for a detailed design of a replacement bridge that shuttles traffic over the railway tracks.

Councillor Taso Christopher said the bridge has been on Belleville's engineering and public works committee for a number of years. “We have a bridge asset program and the CPR bridge is at the top of the list,� he told the Gazette Tuesday. I've been underneath it with some engineers and there is some crumbling going on.� While it may not be up for debate that the bridge needs to be replaced, exactly who will pay for a new bridge will be. Christopher said Belleville Mayor Neil Ellis and senior staff have spoken to the Ministry of Transportation about using gas tax funding combined with

new infrastructure funding for the project but have yet to get a positive response. Christopher believes the project should fall under the Connecting Link program. In that program, bridges and roads that connect municipalities are funded in three parts — the municipalities and the province split the cost. “Either way, when this project goes forward, we are going to need assistance,� The possibility of a toll operation to pay for the project is an option Christopher may support if the city can't get anywhere with the province. The Thurlow ward representative said magazines dedicated to municipal dealings have found through independent studies endorsed by engineers and economists that, for infrastructure projects, tolls may have to be revisited because of the growing expenses. “You can't keep going to the taxpayer of the day, it's not sustainable...you have to look at different options and avenues,�he added. In addition to the design work being undertaken, an environmental assessment at a site to the immediate east of the current bridge is being ordered and traffic flow studies are the next item to be completed. The exact numbers are unknown, but thousands of Prince Edward County residents travel across the bridge every day to attend school, work and shop in the Friendly City. Prince Edward County Mayor Peter Mertens declined to comment on the matter.

Waupoos orchard’s innovative planting takes root Hughes earn provincial salute for high-density planting model AdAm BrAmBurger

Staff writer

Jim and Marion Hughes can readily name off a host of benefits to the super spindle planting of gala apples they started on their Waupoos orchard in 2001. They claim the planting has led to earlier production, higher-quality fruit, and ease of management. Earlier this month, they could add another benefit, one that proves there was something to the science. On Sept. 14, the Hughes traveled to Peterborough to collect a $5,000 prize as a regional recipient of the Premier’s Award for Agri-Food Innovation Excellence. As a member of the International Fruit Tree Association, Jim had the opportunity to visit orchards around the world and bring back some of the best practices he saw and one of those was highdensity planting. “In Europe, especially, the cost of land is very high and it is limited,� he said. “They were forced into some of these higher density plantings before we were in Canada.� Hughes noticed that many growers in Europe were using dwarf root stock and training trees to grow taller and in a narrower space, simply cutting off the lateral branches. The super spindle pattern, which was first tried in Germany and Switzerland, features trees maintained at a height of 11.5 feet and spaced

tightly together. In spring 2001, Hughes planted a high-density gala orchard, featuring 2,180 trees per acre, spaced 10’ x 2’ and supported by four wire trellises. He also planted roses at the end of each row of trees to act as an early indicator of diseases affecting the trees. “This was, arguably, the first such planting in Ontario,’ he said. “My vision was for 1,000 bushels to the acre when in full production.� About four years after planting, the orchard sur-

passed that total in yield. Marion added that because the trees are in such a confined area, she and Jim have also been able to do more to help the apples as their drip irrigation system is spread over a confined space and is still cost effective in times of drought. They’ve also been able to run lines of reflective material the length

of the rows, which allows the bottoms of the apples to ripen, raising the sugar content and making the apples more desirable. As pioneers in such plantings, the Hughes have had many packers and growers visit their business, The Blueberry Patch, to learn about the technology. “It’s become the standard now,� said Hughes. “The system was recognized by some pretty good growers and packers in the province who had visited our site. We always accommodate them.� While it doesn’t really apply to their own orchard, Marion said since the super spindle plantings typically take fewer years to produce fruit, larger growers can often change crop quickly to keep up with market demand for certain varieties of apples. The couple supplies fresh market apples for the Loblaw chains as well as local farm markets in the county and in neighbouring cities. Hughes said he’s been asked by several packers to consider upping his own yields due to quality, but he has resisted.

kids don't have skates, they are playing hockey in the street in their boots.” Of the population of 800 or so, 400 are youth and Babcock figures the majority play hockey. “And if it's not organized, almost all them have a hockey stick and are shooting a puck or a ball around,” she added. But getting hockey equipment isn't as easy as heading to your local sporting goods store. Hockey equipment, like most other non-necessities, need to be ordered and flown in via commercial jet, meaning most kids don't even get the opportunity to put on a pair of skates and glide across the ice. With this in mind, Babcock, Wood (both Wawa, Ontario natives) and Coral

Come and celebrate John and Laurie Doxsee’s 40th Wedding Anniversary on Saturday, September 29th at the Demorestville Town Hall. The surprise party starts at 8pm, all are welcome.

A dozen hockey bags packed with skates, shin pads, hockey socks and other hockey equipment are all packed and ready to go to a small costal community in Nunavut. A local women and her partner who has once lived in the northern territory accepted donations of new and used child's hockey equipment for use in the isolated community of Coral Harbour on Saturday and the outpouring by local hockey parents was “tremendous.” Natalie Babcock, who owns and operates Aspen's -A Pet Grooming Place in Picton, spent a year living in the community with her partner Kyle Wood, a former conservation officer with the Territory's Department of Environment, in 2009 and said the donations collected this past weekend were much appreciated. “It was great to work with the Prince Edward County Minor Hockey Association and we managed to get some great gear for the kids of Coral Harbour,” she said. It was during her time in the north when Babcock saw a love of the great frozen game amongst the inuit youth. “Hockey is so huge there,” Babcock said. “In the winter, if

Love Charlotte

Harbour man Noel Kaludjak started the Nunavut Hockey Equipment Drive, an initiative to help outfit the youth of Coral Harbour with the gear needed for the sport they love so much. “Most of the parents don't have credit cards or even a bank account so buying hockey gear online isn't an option,” Babcock said. “On top of that, the huge shipping costs make things extra pricy.” For example, a one way ticket from Ottawa to Coral Harbour on Tuesday was being sold at $1,875. This is where First Air, The Airline of the North, has picked up a huge assist. First Air is offering the program free shipping to ensure the gear get into the hands of the youth of Coral Harbour in time for the first puck drop of the season. “We could not do this without the generosity of First Air,” Babcock added. In addition to physical activity, the sport brings an opportunity for much needed social interaction. “It gives the children something to do in a community where there's not a lot of things to do,” Babcock said. The community of Coral Harbour has an arena and just recently installed an artificial ice maker, meaning the hockey season is starting earlier then normal. Babcock mentioned the initiative would take last minute donations and the program is also taking donations of adult equipment for use by coaches in the minor hockey association.

County FM board plans ahead while waiting for ruling Mohawk station operating on same frequency could impact licensing process AdAm BRAmBURgER

Staff writer

The proponents of County FM continue to wait for the Canadian Radio-Television Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) and Industry Canada to review their licence applications to operate a public radio station in the county. Board chair Treat Hull told the Picton Rotary Club last week that engineers have found a signal at 92.3 FM that will reach the entire county to transmit its programming, but not significantly spill into the Belleville market, which is already highly saturated. "Our aim is to build something that will contribute to uniting the whole of the county. We thought that it would be absolutely vital to have a signal to be received in every ward," he said. "It would be a disaster if it was only received south of County Rd. 1." The tower is near Sandbanks Provincial Park and it has 3,000 watts of power. Hull said that engineers with the station were able to demonstrate it doesn't go into Belleville, which convinced commercial broadcasters Starboard Communications and Quinte Broadcasting to file jointly in support of the public radio station's application. Of course, those moves came amid rumours in the trade another commercial operator may take a shot at getting on the dial, which would definitely be viewed as a negative by existing radio stations. Hull said that was also a factor in the public station moving forward this summer. "Given it is the only frequency available, we were in a big hurry. The trade gossip was that a commercial operator would take a run at it," he said. He indicated there is also a Mohawk station now running on about the same frequency that presently has the capacity to be heard in South Marysburgh. In a follow up press release, Hull noted that when County FM applied for its licence, the station, KWE was transmitting as a lower power station on a different frequency, but since late July, it has increased its reach. He said as far as County FM can tell, the Mohawk broadcaster is operating without a licence. Hull told Rotarians County FM does not intend to impact that station, but rather it has applied for a band where a licence is available. "We have no argument with KWE.The responsibility for allocating airwaves lies to two regulators and it will be up to them," he said. "From our perspective, our challenge is to get a community radio station on the air, not to do anything to anybody else." After finding a signal, Hull said another challenge the group will face is to find studio space. He said after a lengthy discussion which examined Bloomfield and Wellington, the board decided that its studio space would be ideally placed in Picton. "We decided the centre of the county is Picton and our intention is to have a

TREAT HULL 

studio in Picton. We've done a realistic assessment of the marketplace and we have our eye on four or five locations. Ideally it would be on or close to Main Street with a storefront facility." Hull said the station will not be doing any major fundraising until it hears back from its regulators, a step that could come between six and 18 weeks from the filing of its application. Then, in short order, the station would have to raise $150,000 for transmitting equipment, hire a station manager (its lone paid position), and train the 90 volunteers expected to keep the station on air between 16 and 18 hours a day throughout the week. Operating costs are also anticipated to be in the neighbourhood of $110,000 per year. "You don't just go to Ikea and put a station together," Hull said, adding he expects the capital funding to come from a variety of sources, through memberships and fundraisers, and through on-air donation requests and advertising in the future. Now, however, it is a waiting game. "We won't be doing any

significant fundraising until the time we get our licence. We believe we have a very strong case," he said. "We want to be going to people with an ironclad case, if you're donating, you can be confident this thing is going ahead." Once the station is up, Hull said its board is planning to showcase emerging artists and offer county news and views that couldn't be found on commercial broadcasters. "It's the stories we tell about one another," said Hull. "Some of our news

will be one cut above gossip and two cuts below a Pulitzer Prize, but in a real community, there's even some place for gossip in good taste." Hull said he envisions the station as a good way to build community togetherness and foster economic development by reaching an exclusive audience. He indicated the best way to help the effort to make the station reality is to join the 250 who have purchased $10 memberships in the venture.

Picton Gazette 80 years ago — 1932

■ The Gazette announced its intentions to publish the National Temperance Study Course lessons each week in the newspaper with the Women's Christian Temperance Union offering prizes for the best answers to the questions posed to youth aged 17 and under. Parents were also asked to clip the columns and send them to Sunday school with their children. ■ A remodeling of the Lipson Department Store in Picton promised to put a dozen men to work. The renovations would feature a 31’ x 60’ addition at the rear of the store and the raising of the ceiling throughout the building to 12’6”. A new business office and fitting rooms were to be included in the expansion. ■ The provincial government expected to save $4.5 million by the end of the fiscal year through a decrease in expenditures.

■ The Picton Retail Merchants Association was formed to promote better business and to promote the town. The organization’s first mandate was to regulate Christmas store hours in town. The association’s executive, led by president Allan Anderson, would draw up a details on a proper charter and membership fee for a followup meeting come October. ■ The county was hit by a heavy white frost as temperatures dropped close to zero overnight. The frost touched pumpkin vines, but didn’t impact tomato vines at all. With or without damage, most canners indicated 1962 was already their best year on record in terms of crop yields. ■ A widow, Bertie Carter, and her six young children lost their home and all the contents from its upper level in a fire at Bethesda. The cause was unknown. Neighbours helped offer bedding and clothes to help the uprooted family.

■ Waupoos Canning Company owner Jay Hepburn lit into Minister of Agriculture Dennis Timbrell at a Progressive Conservative riding association meeting in Picton for the government’s decision to give British-owned Heinz $3 million to be competitive internationally. He called the deal preferential treatment and said Canadians could not compete on the world market. Timbrell said the same funding program was available to local canners as well as the larger Heinz. ■ Picton town council passed a memorandum of agreement with Hallowell Township to construct sewers in Fawcettville. The township was to pay for the construction to service 50 single-family dwellings, improvements to Picton’s Hill Street plant, and the plans to be reviewed by both parties. ■ Rumours continued to swirl about the province shutting down the Prince Edward Heights Complex.

■ The County’s economic development office introduced plans for the first Taste! celebration of regional cuisine event. The plan was to market the county as a culinary tourism destination to rival areas like the Niagara region. ■ The County’s community services committee received an estimate of about $135,000 to repair the grandstand at the Picton fairgrounds. The committee was to discuss its options that October.

Ferris Park near Campbellford takes us way back What I like most about Ferris Provincial Park has to be its stone fences. They identify fields once cleared by early pioneers, now consumed by vines, shrubs and trees. They appear from seemingly out of nowhere, crossing the campgrounds and melting into the forest of this 500-acre park at the edge of Campbellford. One even crosses a hiking trail, high on a drumlin. Another stone wall near a playground area has been rebuilt, so even and expertly crafted as though smoothed with a trowel. It is just one of many projects undertaken by the Friends of Ferris, this one in conjunction with the Dry Stone Wall Association of Canada who ran a special hands-on dry stone walling workshop earlier this month. A network of stone walls estimated to total at least six kilometres crisscross this area of beautiful rolling farmland, now considered the acme of anyone’s visit to this park. My wife and I camped there for several days early this month and hiked almost all the six kilometres of hiking trails. Conveniently located at the edge of Campbellford, we found at least four side trails that led to a few of the town’s streets, providing easy access for the local residents. The most famous of these, of course, is the Ranney Gorge Suspension Bridge which drapes across the Trent River at a dizzying height.

OUTDOOR RAMBLES TERRY SPRAGUE

The bridge is only eight years old and was built by the 8th Wing Military CFB Trenton Engineers with financial support from numerous organizations. Whenever I lead guided hikes across this bridge, I always pause in the middle of the bridge, as it shudders and rocks gently back and forth, and enjoy announcing that this was the first such project the engineers had ever attempted. The contributions of the Friends can be found everywhere in this historic park, from the installation of trail markers and benches, purchase and installation of playground equipment and the construction of an enormous picnic shelter in partnership with the Campbellford Rotary Club. It was only a few years ago when, upon hearing that I

would be there with about 30 hikers, that the Friends arrived en masse and organized a barbecue for us and led a guided hike. I have returned every year to set up our travel trailer at the park’s campground and spend several days exploring other projects the Friends have undertaken since our last visit. For us on this trip, it was the trails we wanted to explore – all of them, if we could. We set out early one morning at sunrise, and tackled the drumlin trails that traverse this scenic portion of the park over hills and through rich woodlands, scaring up ruffed grouse and enjoying the late season whistles from wood pewees and even the robin-like songs from a redeyed vireo. Its imperfect delivery suggested a juvenile bird. Along one of the trails, a lone thrush appeared for a moment, but not long enough to pin an identity on it. Along the way, we met numerous hikers all being led by their dogs, regulars we were told. It was encouraging to see this kind of daily activity along these well groomed and cared for trails. A regular for us on our visits is the River Gorge Trail that runs along the fenced edge of the Trent River and loops its way around within a stone’s throw of the campground. Even the campground roads are a delight to walk with one of them passing through a re-

built stone wall and networking through deciduous and coniferous growths. The campers on this visit were friendly and often dropped in for a visit. Some were passing through, on their way to other destinations. Others, like us, were content to stay for a week. One party was from Trenton, and there were two others from Napanee. We felt like we already knew each other. It is not a terribly busy park, and that’s what makes it so special. It is a good place to relax for a few days in the fall and reconnect. The park staff seemed to go out of their way to ensure everyone was happy. One camper who had pre-registered arrived after the office had closed for the day, and was assured by a park warden that she would process her permits and deliver them to her site later that day. If there was a complaint to be had at all, it was that our holiday ended much too soon. Somehow though we did manage to work in the cheese factory and the Campbellford chocolate outlet!

OPP investigates pair of deadly crashes on county roads The Prince Edward OPP detachment continues to investigate the scene of a serious accident in North Marysburgh ward. Two vehicles collided headon on County Rd. 13 at about 2:30 p.m. Monday afternoon. One of the drivers, a 38-yearold man was airlifted to Kingston General Hospital where he is being treated for serious injuries. The other driver, a 39-year-

old woman was taken to Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital where she was treated with non-life threatening injuries. The road remained closed 24 hours later as local officers continued their investigation with the assistance of OPP technical collision investigators. Traffic was detoured off of County Rd. 13 at McCarthy lane and Mitchell’s Cross Road.

IMPAIRED DRIVER

Shortly after 1 a.m. Sunday, police officers were dispatched to a single-vehicle rollover on County Rd. 49. The officers learned the vehicle had been traveling southbound when its drive lost control, forcing the vehicle to leave the roadway and roll over several times, ejecting the driver. The 25-year-old driver from Hallowell, who was also the lone occupant of the vehi-

cle, was arrested at the scene. The man was transported to Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital to be treated for serious injuries and to provide a breath sample before being moved to Kingston General Hospital. He will appear in Picton court Oct. 17 to face impaired driving and operating a motor vehicle with more than 80 mg blood/alcohol content. -Staff

Segregating schools no substitute for understanding

IF some people in Toronto have their way, there could be a new type of segregation making its way into high schools as some have called for a school that is centered entirely on the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered community. That comes on the heels of decisions in that city to start an Africentric program in schools, which would seem to go right back to segregation of schools based on race, rather than on a student’s interests, aptitude, or merit. While it is likely the proponents of such schools see them as an opportunity for students to be more comfortable, surrounded by people they believe to be safe or understanding, one can’t help but think that such segregation is missing the mark on several levels. For one, schools are not intended to be isolated bubbles from the rest of the world — there are different people in the world and some time, youth are going to have to learn to find ways to cope with the world around them and to live with and accept those differences. Building walls to shelter a particular race, creed, or orientation only leads further to an “us versus them” dynamic and an uncomfortable divide in communities that need to come together. Also, labels aren’t as easily measured as one might believe. People who share the same race or the same sexual orientation are still different people in many ways and they can still have their differences. These schools wouldn’t shield students from violence, nor would they shield them from bullying or stigma... it’s just a different place to be with people who may somehow identify the same as each other. To top it off, taxpayers’ money would likely be paying for these exclusive schools and to transport youth distances to ensure they’re able to study under such a model. It seems odd that a province that was willing to fight to ensure that its publicly-funded Roman Catholic school system allowed what it believed to be more inclusive gay-straight alliances would consider starting new schools that would somehow minimize the notion that all students are able to attend classes and feel comfortable within its walls. What would happen if a straight student decided he or she wanted to go to the GLBT school because it had newer equipment or better teachers in a given subject area? How about if a white student wanted to go to the Africentered school? Would they be welcomed with open arms, or would that harm the very concept the proponents of those schools are trying to bring forward? It is possible that schools can be a place where all people can be welcomed and a place where people can pray to whomever they want, associate with whomever they choose, and still feel comfortable. That starts with leadership, understanding, and education about differences and it likely will not happen if everyone thinks they’re best traveling the easy street to their perceived places of least resistance.

Purdy statue among exciting developments in Ameliasburgh

Those with an interest in Al Purdy, often referred to as Canada’s unofficial poet laureate, will want to drop by the Ameliasburgh branch of the library and view the art piece created in his honour. Artist James Walke developed a keen interest at a young age in the works of Al Purdy and has paid homage to the literary icon with a remarkable sculpture. The piece is a cast cement fondue bust mounted on a steel rod set in concrete. It weighs approximately 25 kilos and is flawlessly finished in black acrylic paint. The precisely defined likeness captures the high forehead, thoughtful expression, and distinct Purdy gaze perfectly. The bust began its life during the late winter of 2009 after a failed first attempt in the artist’s then unheated studio. “I had to move the entire operation inside my cramped basement as the studio never achieved anything like a consistent temperature for curing,” explains Walke. “Once completed,” he adds, ”I felt the piece needed a home.” Finding the right home took a few years, but, this past summer Walke contacted the library and generously offered to donate his work to the Al Purdy branch of the County of Prince Edward Public Library and Archives. “It was with great pleasure that the library received the bust,” said Library CEO Barbara Sweet. “It truly adds something significant to the branch and to the Al Purdy display.” The Ameliasburgh branch similarly holds an important place in the village and it is where many in the community borrow books and materials, and attend programs. The Purdy sculpture is prominently displayed so that it can be viewed and appreciated by all. Another important building in the village is the Town Hall. Sweet has been attending meetings of the Town Hall Working Group, collaborating and supporting the efforts of the volunteers that are both improving the hall and organizing activities. To that end, the library, along with the Museums and other groups will be involved in a special Christmas in the Village event on Dec. 8.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Picton needs a dedicated harbour committee

My wife and I have travelled a lot throughout North America and Europe. And we both like harbours. There's something magical about a harbour, especially at dawn and dusk. Picton has one of the loveliest harbours on the continent! You local Pictonites have obviously no idea just how unusually pretty it is. Or that for every sailor who ties

their boat to one of the docks, a thousand tourists would like to look at the scene and sigh, heavily, just for the beauty. You need a harbour tourist committee, at the minimum. Some group dedicated to improving the waterscape (not the whole harbour; just the photo view from the end). Picton harbour is the star in the crown of Picton's attrac-

tions. The condos on the north side of the water suit the place reasonably well, which is a pleasant surprise. On the south side, I was pleased to discover that the old motel had been removed. But its replacement isn't a lot better! Cripes; the backside of a functional building. I guess it's there, now, and there's not a lot to be done about it.

But the harbour tourist committee should start its work by planting trees and vines to hide the building on the south side. Later, perhaps, it could consider adding a few statuary artworks by Prince Edward County artists, but first start by hiding that building. Lenny Everson Kitchener

Wind proponents dismiss will of majority in ward

Wpd Canada, the developer of the industrial turbine project in South Marysburgh, has recently expressed its contempt for the rights and wishes of the local people and applied for permission from the Ministry of the Environment to build its project. Wpd Canada and the Ontario government, make no mistake about it, know that this project is heartily opposed by the majority of the people of South Marys-

burgh. This recent action by wpd Canada is a reflection of the cynical and dismissive role they and the people currently at Queen’s Park have for all Ontarians. Anyone who doubts the damage industrialization does to a rural community has their heads in the sand — whether it is the local fringe group or those who have leased their land without regard to the detriment of the larger community. It is hard to believe that

McGuinty and his developer friends have not been certain of the outcome of this charade from the beginning. Their slight attempts to assure us that we are still living in something resembling a democracy, by pretending to listen to public opinion, makes mock of our dignity as Canadians. And what about our own elected officials? In South Marysburgh, Barb Proctor continues to dissemble in

troubling and inexplicable ways. In Picton, Peter Mertens apparently prefers to let it all drift over him. Next election, let’s try to elect a stronger council that has some fire in it’s heart and some desire to work with all the local volunteers who are pulling so hard to prevent the industrialization of our home.. L. Wood Milford

Response from developer merely corporate spin

Last week I received a response from wpd concerning my letter of serious concern about the devastating effect that its proposed White Pines wind energy project will have on Prince Edward County. Like all other wpd communications, wpd’s response letter to me and to over 100 other county folk was a whitewash. It was corporate spin. It

was more of the multinational scam that the wind industry has been perpetrating on the governments and peoples of many countries. Paragraph by paragraph, wpd dismisses citizen concerns about the adverse effects that wind factories are having on people and communities. Legitimate worries about health, wildlife, landscapes,

property values, local economy, tourism, and democratic rights are answered only by saying that wpd is following the rules, that the Ministry of Natural Resources approves, and that we are free to appeal to courts or tribunals. This week I learned that wpd has submitted its project application to MOE. Obviously, the fact that neighbour-

ing county residents voted 90 per cent in opposition to the project does not figure into the business decisions of this good corporate monster, or into the political decisions of its partnering perpetrators in Toronto who authored the Green Energy Act. This is democracy?

“It’s so easy to run into people whose families have been affected by Alzheimer’s disease. In fact, it’s becoming difficult to find people who have not,” says Jon Leavons, the president of the Alzheimer

Society of Prince Edward County. Chances are, many in this county have benefitted the services of the society, whether through support groups or through the $45,000

it has raised for research over the past 25 years of operations. To mark that milestone, the society will hold a barbecue Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at its office on the cor-

ner of King and Paul streets in Picton. All are welcome. To find out more about the society and its services, please call 613-476-2085. -Staff

Gala to assist residential hospice Tickets selling quickly for Autumn Leaves auction dinner

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

AdAm BrAmBurger

Staff writer

Hospice organizations tend to focus on the autumn years of life, helping families appreciate the colour and beauty that comes just before the dead of winter. With that in mind, a group of individuals within Prince Edward County thought the fall would be the perfect time to shine the spotlight on Hospice Prince Edward's residential hospice campaign by planning an elaborate and elegant gala with an Autumn Leaves theme. Dr. Joshua Colby and his wife Que attended similar gala events in the Trenton and Belleville communities and thought something similar would be well received here, where the momentum has been steadily building to see a permanent hospice facility built. They rallied a committee to form and have announced a fundraising event will take place Nov. 17 at the Wellington and District Community Centre, beginning with cocktails at 6 p.m. and dinner at 7 p.m. As a medical professional, Colby said he sees value in the potential facility. "We have a lot of palliative patients in this community. A lot of the family health team members are very involved in palliative care, but the hospital is not necessarily the most comfortable place for families and palliative patients to spend their last days together," he said. "The idea of a hospice is a home environment, yet having good support. It is generally a nice space for the patients and their families to be." Hospice Prince Edward and Picton Rotary launched plans for the residential hospice facility last July. Since, the organization declared Benson Hall its proposed site and has been working with Ministry of Health and Long-term Care and and South East Local Health Integration Network (SE LHIN) officials in planning such a facility. A public fundraising drive has been very successful, highlighted by the Hike For Hospice raising over $50,000 in May. Colby said the committee decided the time was right to capitalize on that enthusiasm. "There was a movement to start a gala here, it almost didn't happen this year, but the committee decided just to do it," he said. "We want to have a big celebration and raise a lot of money for the hospice so it can be built."

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

Originally, plans were to have 300 people attending the dinner, but since it is a firsttime event, that number has been scaled back to 200. Colby said he still has high hopes the gala may even surpass the funds raised at the hike. Already, half of the tickets have been sold. The event will feature a four-course meal catered by Sans Souci. Que Colby added the caterer's executive chef Greg Sheridan has been quite generous with his offerings for the price to help support the hospice drive. Sheridan said the food is in keeping with the theme. "What we've tried to reflect is fall and local as well as a celebration," Sheridan said. "It's a thrill to be involved. Even though we are in Belleville, we are really community driven." The Reasons, one of the most popular headline bands in the county, has been booked to play, while Manson Slik will preside over an auction with some fabulous prizes. Colby and Dr. Elizabeth Christie have provided a topof-the-line Ontario-made kevlar canoe for auction, while the county physicians have stuffed that canoe with high-end camping gear. "All the physicians donated some high-end camping gear so there would be a complete package," said Joshua Colby. "A patient of

mine donated the oars. We have stoves, headlamps... everything you need for camping." Also up for bid the a week-long use of a private island for camping, a week's stay in Beckenridge, Colorado, a barbecue set, a complete county wine cave, and more. "We weren't sure if we were going to get a good auction put together, but it has turned out overwhelming," said Colby. "Community members and businesses have been overwhelmingly supportive of this project." Colby indicated that if the 200 tickets sold quickly, the organizers would consider releasing extra seats, though he encouraged people not to wait. "They're going fast," he said. "We'd hate to see anyone turned away. Tickets are $150 per person and are available through Hospice Prince Edward at 613-476-2181 ext. 4253. Charitable receipts of $75 will be issued to those in attendance. Hospice Prince Edward executive director Nancy Parks said she was thrilled to see doctors throwing support behind the gala. "It's amazing and it also affirms our project for a residential hospice. It is very needed and the community is supporting it. it is wonderful to have a collaboration with the medial community."

Annual Taste event rebranded as celebration of community food and the producers who make it Three chefs to take part in competition to create using local ingredients AdAm BrAmBurger

Staff writer

The Taste! celebration event will be heading back to its roots this Saturday. With a juggling of some new blood into the offices at Taste the County, the organization decided a rebrand was in order from "a celebration of regional cuisine," to "community grown" to get back to more of a grassroots salute to local producers and the county itself. "We're now focusing on community grown," said new Taste chief executive officer Jeremiah MacKenzie. "This event came from the community, this event is about what is grown in the community. You just need to look around to see the people who provide for us." MacKenzie said the theme

"I cannot help but think about how my grandfather would come back and he'd talk about those wonderful dinners in town halls or in backyards and schools. We want to foster, promote, and preserve that very special sense of togetherness." The revisioning comes at a time when Taste the County is changing itself as longtime events and sponsorship coordinator Grace Nyman has moved on to work with the County's community development department.

At 11:30, a county pie auction will allow individuals to bid on the tastiest pies made with local ingredients and family recipes. There will also be a chance to bid on a three-minute shopping spree at Picton Sobeys valued at $500. Proceeds f will benefit the Edith Fox Life and Loss Centre. "It brings it right back to a real county fair vibe for this year's event," said Larkin. Then, between 2:30 and 3:30 p.m chefs Scott Royce, Matt Demille, and Steve Chaves will take part in County Chopped, a cooking competition where each of the chefs will be given a black box full of county-grown ingredients and 30 minutes to plan and prepare a onecourse meal for Taste chair Cynthia Peters and fellow judges Rebecca LeHeup and Karin Desveaux. County Chopped also has a charitable element to it as the barbecues the three chefs will be working on are to be auctioned off to help Canadian Tire Jumpstart. Lastly, for Saturday, while the food tasting is open to just ticket holders, the public is invited to visit a large farmers' market sponsored by Waupoos Estates Winery. Jim Hartley, the food and bever-

age manager at the winery said by having the market, it helps link the culinary field back to the producers quite nicely and it reminds visitors why the county is a culinary destination. "We felt it was very important we get back to the basics of what the county was in the beginning. Without the farmers, we wouldn't have the restaurants we have," he said. It's also been a lucrative event for those producers. Vicki Emlaw has been bringing her goods to Taste even before there was a formal farmers' market. She said even in its early years, the Taste weekend was the busiest of the year for her roadside stand. "By introducing our products, if people were to taste what we have, we knew they'd buy it," she said. "We were introducing it to people who had never had it before." Tickets are available in advance for $25 plus HST and a $2 handling fee. They can be purchased by phone at 1-866845-6644, in person at Taste The County's office at 289 Main Street in Bloomfield, or online at tastecelebration.ca. The event runs from 11 a.m. to p.m. at the Crystal Palace. Child care can be arranged through www.pecchildcareservices.ca. A number of companion events have also been scheduled and are detailed online.

Grade 9 girls get away for a day together

AdAm BrAmBurger

Staff writer

Starting high school has always been a challenge. It’s a bigger place with plenty of new faces and new routines to learn. Many would say that it is even tougher today with young people having to grow up quickly as society is more progressive and social media provides opportunities for bullying that never existed before. Staff members at PECI noticed that transition can be especially tough for teenage girls, so they looked to find a way to help Grade 9 girls counter that before they became too involved in their new lives. On Monday, some 77 girls participated in a retreat for the freshmen girls at Wesley Acres. “We have our girls all together today,” said teacherorganizer Caryn Phoenix-Renz. “We want them to get to know each other, but we also want to talk to them about specific issues.” During the morning session of the event, the girls were separated into three breakout groups where they were able to meet different resource workers associated with the school and ask questions about their areas of expertise. Community Mental Health Worker Sharon Sibthorpe talked to students about the impacts of stress and bullying, while public and sexual health nurse also led a session and fielded questions. Phoenix-Renz indicated that both professionals visit PECI for office hours and they are faces the girls can turn to if they need help. “We want to direct them to people who can help them and have them feel comfortable enough to ask for that help,” she said. Phoenix-Renz helped lead a third workshop with fellow

staff member Stacey Dunning on positive body image and self esteem. They also worked through subjects like bullying and social media. “We’re givng them strategies to work through it,” said Phoenix-Renz. Dunning, who has led several girls’ retreats for high school girls before, said there was a bit more sensitivity with some subjects given the age of the girls, but there was no lack of enthusiasm. “They’ve been very attentive, but when you’re 13 or 14 years old, you don’t feel comfortable asking those big questions in front of big crowds.” She said, typically, those retreats for girls had been held toward the end of second semester, but new principal Darren McFarlane encouraged his staff to do something for the Grade 9s right at the start of the year. That way, she said, they are more familiar with one another and with the resources around them. Dunning said she felt Wesley Acres was a better place to host the day than inside the gymnasium or some classes at school. “It gives it more of a retreat feeling, rather than being in a gymnasium. The students feel more comfortable,” she said. “I’ve always

seen it as a way of breaking down those school walls.” Dunning said the importance of her session was in showing the girls that portraying good messages will attract the attention of good people, while portraying bad messages will do the opposite. During the afternoon, the girls took their turns creating vision boards — cutouts of photographs that illustrate their goals and ambitions in life — writing out “warm fuzzies” which are positive notes about the people they’ve met while on retreat, and taking yoga. Dunning said being a visual peson, she has actually looked back on one she’d made several years before and changed it to reflect her ongoing goals. Helping the girls as role models for the day were five peer tutors. They took an active role in facilitating the discussions when their younger counterparts weren’t carrying the discussions in group. One of the peer tutors, Alicia Dayton, said she felt the retreat would have been useful when she was coming into Grade 9. “I think a lot of Grade 9 girls don't really have an idea of who to ask or where to get their information from,” she said. “They're hungry for in-

formation. This gives them an opportunity to find out and not be judged.” Fellow peer tutor Ashley McInnis said she felt that “everyone seemed involved and interested,” and wanted to learn more. One of the participants, Raven Moore, agreed. She said she learned to not be afraid to be herself and to just be whomever she wanted to be, regardess of what other people think. Moore indicated she’d also likely be less quick to judge other girls after her experiences at the retreat. McInnis said she felt it would be useful for boys to also have a similar opportunity. Phoenix-Renz said the something like that may be in the works, but indicated for the purposes of Monday’s retreat, it was felt the girls would be more comfortable alone as their interactions with boys also do impact how girls see themselves. She said she’s hopeful the school will have revived boys and girls groups in the future to allow students to provide support for their peers. Monday’s retreat was made possible by Ministry of Education Speak Out and Student Voice funding and product support from Rexall and Sobeys.

On Friday, Sept. 14, the Prince Edward County Music Festival commenced its ninth season “Searching for Beauty” with a sampling of its musical offerings, provided by the New Orford String Quartet during an informal evening hosted by CBC broadcaster Eric Friesen. Affable and charming, Friesen explained the historical and artistic contexts of many of the pieces scheduled during the Festival. On Saturday evening, the musicians got down to serious work, beginning with Brahm’s Violin Sonata in G Major, Opus 78, performed by FOR THE GAZETTE

artistic director Stephane Lemelin and violinist Jonathon Crow, currently the concert master of the Toronto Symphony. The piece moved from the delicacy of the first section through the reticence of the second, to the resolute strength of the finale, and allowed Crow the opportunity to reveal a wide range of colours and dynamics in his instrument. In fact, this reviewer had the unusual experience of being so transfixed by the sound of the violin during the adagio, that the piano, albeit briefly, seemed to disappear altogether – a temporary effect, as Lemelin soon reasserted the piano’s presence.

quintet, Scales of Joy and Sorrow, as performed by Lemelin and the New Orford String Quartet, was built on a premise – a series of ascending and descending scales – that, though seemingly simple, plumbed profound emotional depths in execution. In the beginning, the scales rose and fell by half-tones in prolonged sequence, each phrase moving from one instrument to another in majestic and solemn beauty. As the piece progressed, the scales became more agitated and the pace quickened, the scales coming quickly in urgent upward thrusts, the phrases from all instruments tumbling over each other.

The overall effect was to portray an emotional journey from pain and isolation to a frenzied and joyous striving for union, and the third section’s return to the opening melody had, this time, a serene and meditative quality. Maestro Mozetich’s past studies and influences include the “serialist” mode made famous by Phillip Glass. Although Mozetich has developed to a more organic, melodically-based style, his serialist history was evident in the quick, repeated patterns in the bass line, which provided a foundation for the scales soaring and dipping above.

12 THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 2012

The Picton Gazette members shared descriptions of how profoundly this music had affected them. The evening drew to a close with Sir Edward Elgar’s Piano Quintet in A Minor, Opus 84, again with Lemelin and the New Orford String Quartet, comprised of Jonathan Crow and Andrew Wan, violins, Eric Nowlin, viola, and Brian Manker, cello. Although written in 1918, this music seems to hearken back in style to the 19th Century, particularly to the music of Brahms. Foreboding and somewhat martial in tone, it also sang with meditative passion in the middle section, but was, on the whole, somewhat somber. Lemelin and the

Available in most new Ford vehicles with 6-month pre-paid subscription

NOSQ provided all the opulence and fervour that one could hope for in this piece. On Sunday afternoon, the New Orford String Quartet presented “Chamber Music Essentials”, the first half comprised of a brilliant juxtaposition of the Haydn Quartet in D Major, Opus 20, and the Quartet No. 3 of Bela Bartok. Why brilliant? Because the first is a model of mathematical, architectural precision in 18th Century Classical style, the façade of the Palace of Versailles set to music. In the second, an Expressionist work from 1927, the same mathematical precision is evident, but it is as if Bartok had turned the music inside out in order to examine the workings, a sort of “Centre Georges Pompidou” structure translated for string quartet. The players used a tightly focused, very brilliant sound that emphasized the firm construction of both pieces. The second half was devoted to Brahms’ Quartet Opus 51, No. 1. In historical chronology and style, this quartet falls between the two of the first half. Written in 1873, it features the lavish melody of the late Romantic era, and the NOSQ adjusted their sound to bring a richer, more lush tone from their instruments. When the enthusiasm of the audience brought them back for an encore, they provided a musical “palate-cleanser” in a bubbly and exuberant second movement from the Debussy String Quartet in G Minor that sent the blissful listeners out into the late September afternoon with smiles on faces. On Thursday, Sept. 20, a fully staged opera was performed by the young professionals of Jeunesses Musicales Canada. Mozart’s Cosi fan tutte, a farcical plot with love-struck maidens, dashing young men and mistaken identity, featured some of Mozart’s most beloved arias and ensembles. While some of the ensemble work was a trifle bumpy, the young singers were fully up to the demands of the opera’s sometimes fiendishly difficult vocal fireworks, particularly soprano Vania Margani as Fiordiligi. Friday’s concert took place in the beautiful setting of the Oeno Gallery in Bloomfield, where the greatly anticipated Penderecki Quartet commenced the evening with Beethoven’s Quartet in G Minor, Opus 18. In the composer’s sturdy chord structures, the melodies of the four sections were barely contained from breaking out into sunny, delighted dances, and the players’ richly sonorous colours seemed particularly suited to Beethoven’s muscular sound. The evening included Debussy’s Quartet in G Minor and it was interesting to compare the performance of the second section by this group with the one from the previous weekend, where it served as the encore for the New Orford String Quartet. In the hands of the Penderecki, the music had an overall darker, richer hue, which gave an earthier grounding, rather than the bubbly ebullience of the NOSQ. It was as if “dawn” had become “sunset”. But the centerpiece of the evening was Mozetich’s Juno-award winning Lament in a Trampled Garden.

Municipality aims to change its corporate culture County staff to receive training for efficiency Chadâ&#x20AC;&#x2C6;Ibbotson

staff writer

The municipality will be rolling out a new corporate work culture as a part of its corporate realignment strategy. A release last week from the municipality says the new corporate culture will improve the way municipal employees work together by changing management styles and moving toward a more collaborative ideology. The release says customer service and efficient, effective service delivery will be the primary focus. The new culture calls for a change in management and staff attitudes, roles and work style. Mayor Peter Mertens said the drive for a new culture is being lead by staff and commissioners. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They're the ones that are doing a lot of the work with the toolkit and the training programs. It's really a staff-driven initiative,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It's giving people the opportunity to take training, to enhance their career prospects and any time you do that it creates a whole different attitude.â&#x20AC;? He said when staff have the ability and authority to make more decisions about their work or projects, their jobs become more meaningful. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It adds completely to the effectiveness and efficiency of the operation, but also it enhances substantially the customer service aspect,â&#x20AC;? Mertens said. The release said the culture change would create a more self-sufficient workforce who would be more

accountable and would have more ownership of their day-to-day responsibilities. The shift will be supported with necessary training and development sessions, monitoring and support. The municipality has invited speaker and corporate trainer Joe Sherren to assist with the transition to the new culture at two employee development sessions. Mertens said the previous structure and management style were put in place during amalgamation when staff weren't very involved in decision making. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They certainly weren't given any motivation for improving their career path and opportunities for building on their careers,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They became people that did things by rope in a lot of cases because they didn't see the opportunities for themselves. Now we're opening up those opportunities.â&#x20AC;? The municipality will look to encourage professional development through internal programs like the Acting CAO program and newly created Employee Toolkit for Success program. The latter program saw county em-

ployees Brad Neiman, Jean Anne Carroll and Preston Parkinson work with the Acting CAO group to create a toolkit to provide internal development opportunities for staff. This will allow employees to identify and pursue additional training. A design and budget for the program is expected to be submitted for the 2013 municipal budget. Another new initiative is the certified building code official in training program initiated by chief building official Andy Harrison. Rather than filling a vacant position externally, the position was posted internally and will allow the successful candidate to participate in a six-month internal training process that will prepare the employee for ministry exams and to obtain the necessary qualifications. In addition, there will be in-house facilitated courses. A workplace survey circulated to all county staff looked to identify negative aspects of the current corporate culture and where staff would like to be in the future. While the identified current culture â&#x20AC;&#x153;is conservative, traditional and bureaucratically controlledâ&#x20AC;? the survey showed staff

preferred a style that â&#x20AC;&#x153;is managed in a participative and person-centred wayâ&#x20AC;? and includes phrases like â&#x20AC;&#x153;be spontaneousâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;resist conformity.â&#x20AC;? Mertens said when a workforce is allowed to be more creative they â&#x20AC;&#x153;automatically look for ways to do the job better.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sometimes they're concerned because in the past maybe they had ideas, but nobody has wanted to listen to them. Instead of creating and providing ideas they don't bother anymore,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is opening up an avenue now for them to bring some of that creativity and some of their great ideas to the jobs they do every day.â&#x20AC;?

Decoration day pays homage to those who fought Jason Parks

Staff writer

It's sincerely hoped the poor attendance at the Glenwood Cemetery's Veteran's Day Ceremony on Saturday morning was due to threatening skies and not disinterest or apathy. Less than two dozen people gathered inside the cemetery grounds at the Maplehill Veterans Section Saturday morning for a special ceremony of gratitude and remembrance that featured remarks from local dignitaries and speakers serving in the Canadian Forces.. Organized by the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 78 and the No.415 Wing Air Force Association and hosted by the Glenwood Cemetery Board, the ceremony served to honour the over 200 veterans that have been laid to rest at Glenwood. a number that includes eight airmen who perished while training at No. 31 Bombing and Gunnery School at Camp Picton during the Second World War. The solemn ceremony featured a parade by members

of the Legion, current members of the Canadian Forces and the 851 Air Cadet Squadron. The Last Post and Reveille were played, Amazing Grace was sung by Lorain Sine and prayers were offered to the memory of those that served and those that paid the ultimate sacrifice in the name of freedom. In a serene setting where heaven and earth and life and death were intertwined, Padre Stan Whitehouse called on those gathered to remember. “It is in faith we commit to remember all those souls laid to rest and it is with gratitude we recall the service they rendered to the commonwealth,

Renewable Energy Approval Notice of Final Public Meeting Ontario Regulation 359/09

NOTICE OF FINAL PUBLIC MEETING by Spark Solar Development Ltd. Project Name:

Sunny Shores Solar Project

Project Location: The Project is proposed to be located on one parcel of land located on part Lots 12 and 13, Concession II SW in the former geographic Township of Sophiasburgh, Prince Edward County, Ontario. Spark Solar Development Ltd. is planning to engage in a renewable energy project in respect of which the issuance of a renewable energy approval is required. The distribution of this notice of final public meeting and the project itself are subject to the provisions of the Environmental Protection Act Part V.0.1 and Ontario Regulation 359/09. This notice must be distributed in accordance with section 15 of the Regulation prior to an application being submitted and assessed for completeness by the Ministry of the Environment. Meeting Location: DATE: November 26, 2012 TIME: Open to the public between 5:30 PM to 8:00 PM PLACE: Sophiasburgh Town Hall 2711 County Road 5 Demorestville, ON

our own nation and the world generally as they sought to defend freedom, put down oppression and uphold the values we hold dear and continue to embrace,” Whitehouse said. Prince Edward County Mayor Peter Mertens added a personal touch in his remarks, offering thanks on behalf of those with Dutch heritage that lived through Nazi tyranny in the 1940s before Holland was liberated by Canadian units serving with the Allies. “Those of us that come from another country and experienced war are especially grateful to those that lost their lives. I take this opportunity to give voice to the many people and families from Holland who live in Prince Edward County and who suffered during the war. “Most of us that were there were liberated by Canadian troops so we have an especially warm place in our hearts for veterans, particularly those that paid the ultimate sacrifice,” Mertens said, adding the message of remembrance must be passed on. “For younger ones, war is an abstract and we must take greater pains to ensure they remember what has gone on before them,” Mertens said. Lt. Damon Perrault, Commanding Officer of 426 transport Training Squadron spoke of the British Commonwealth Air Training Program and this regions commitment to the plan as Trenton, De-

seronto and Picton all had air bases that prepared young men from the commonwealth for ariel battle. In total, over 131,000 young men were enrolled in the BCATP including the airmen who's remains are resting at Glenwood. “Although willing to serve, their lives were cut short prior to graduation,” Perrault said. “Their sacrifice and contribution is not lost on us to today as we pause to remember nor are their efforts lost on today's airmen of the RCAF. Our squadrons are rooted in the efforts of those that came before us and th sacrifices of all those that served are remembered.” The graves of these soldiers are maintained by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission. Brigadier General (Retired) David Kettle said the Commission's mandate is to commemorate in perpetuity the graves and memorials of the 1.7 million Commonwealth war dead either on a head stone or, where their remains could not be found, on a nearby memorial. “We do this so their sacrifice in the name of freedom will never be forgotten,” Kettle said. “We do this so we can be reminded of the cost of freedom and this freedom is not a right, it is a sacred trust, it's precious and it was purchased with the blood, sweat and tears of people that we will never know but people we are indebted to none the less as Canadians.”

Project Description: Pursuant to the Act and Regulation, the facility, in respect of which the project is to be engaged in, is classified as a Class 3 Solar Facility in accordance with the provisions of the Environmental Protection Act. If approved, this facility would have a total maximum name plate capacity of 10 MW. The Project Location is described in the map below.

No plans for expansion

APPLES, from page 3

“We will always innovate, but we have no plans for expanion,” Jim said when asked how he would spend the $5,000. He and Marion admitted their current operations, which also include strawberry and blueberry bushes were intended as a retirement project that took off. Now, much of the work is done by crews featuring Jamaican seasonal labourers and summe students.

“They do a lot of the hard work and they share in this aware. Jim and I more or less supervise,” Marion said. The couple, which has seen its share of awards from their own industry said it was nice to see the province accept their application and provide further recognition. Another county business, the Carriage House Cooperage, also received a regional Premier’s Award this year. Watch the Gazette in upcoming weeks for more information on their award.

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 2012 f RE/23

THE PICTON GAZETTE

Potential Insurance issues with older homes Every week I come across items in a home that insurance providers flag as unacceptable or have a potential of high risk. House insurance is intended to protect homeowners against most unforeseeable circumstances or accidents, but not predictable or inevitable events. Given that insurance companies continually compile and review the causes for insurance claims, they are capable of more accurately evaluating their risk associated with certain building components that have a high claim frequency. To minimize their risk, insurance companies are requiring certain inspections or upgrades to high risk building components be completed to provide home insurance on certain (often new) insurance policies. Their policy modifications are not necessarily related to building code changes and requirements, or technological advancements, but rather are developed to reduce the risk of insurance companies from having to pay out on homeowner claims. In spite of the wide range of specific inspections and upgrade requirements, there are several common areas associated with homeowner’s insur-

ance that concern insurance companies.

Aluminum Electrical Distribution Wiring

Single strand aluminum distribution wiring was installed in many homes between 1968 and 1978 (approximately). Due to its tendency to oxidize and its incompatibility with certain fittings designed for use with copper wiring, aluminum wiring has been determined to overheat in certain situations. As long as proper connections are used, and the connections are made without damaging the wire, aluminum wiring is however considered safe. For years, the presence of aluminum wiring in a home has been an item that, if installed and managed properly, has not been a safety concern. However, more recently, several insurance companies have been requiring (for new insurance policies) that the aluminum wiring be inspected by an ESA (Electrical Safety Authority) inspector, and if necessary, requiring certain upgrades or repairs to fixtures in the home or in some cases, requiring replacement of the aluminum wiring with copper wiring.

60-amp Electrical Services

60-amp Electrical Services were commonly installed in homes prior to 1950. The term

"60 amps" represents the maximum amount of current that a home may use from the local utility at one time. It is currently common to install a 100 amp electrical service (as a minimum) in new home construction. 60 amp main electrical service is considered small by today’s standards; it is not inherently considered an unsafe system. However, there are two common safety issues often associated with older, 60 amp services. These include increased risk of amateurish/unsafe historic electrical repairs and improper fuse size installations associated with the 60 amp system; both of these items can cause overheating of distribution wiring in the home, potentially causing an electrical fire.

Knob and Tube Wiring

Knob and tube wiring is characterized by separately run hot and neutral wires, paper insulated wires, ceramic insulators and the absence of junction boxes at wire splices. If this type of wiring has been professionally maintained since its original installation, is often still a very safe system. However, ungrounded conditions, improper modifications and amateurish home owner repairs of this type of wiring can lead to certain safety/fire issues; this

is the main reason why knob and tube wiring is considered a higher risk than contemporary wiring installations. Regardless of the actual rationale for the insurance companies concerns with 60 amp services and knob and tube wiring, their mere presence in a home is currently a common trigger for further review/upgrades to an older electrical system. Upgrading these components often reduces the insurance company’s risk of an electrical fire and subsequent claim.

Galvanized Plumbing

Galvanized supply and distribution piping was historically installed in homes prior to 1950. These pipes commonly rust or corrode from the inside out, often reducing the pressure or restricting the flow of water or worse yet, leaking and creating flood damage to a home. Given that many galvanized pipe installations have recently reached their estimated life expectancies, the risk of a pipe leak occurring and the potential for flood damage is high. Some insurance companies are now refusing to provide homeowner's insurance on houses with this type of plumbing.

Fuel Oil Tanks

Fuel oil tanks have been installed across Canada for

SG

O

decades, although they are more common in eastern Canada. In many cases the fuel oil tanks are original or greater than 20 years old. As fuel oil tank/distribution system installations age, the probability for leakage from rust, corrosion, damage, etc. also increases. If a fuel oil leak occurs and goes undetected, the environmental cleanup for such a situation can be immense. The TSSA (Technical Standards Safety Authority) requires all fuel oil installations be inspected by a licensed TSSA/HVAC technician every 10 years. Fuel oil distributors may also refuse delivery to any residence they feel is not in compliance with the current regulation. Other insurance company concerns can range from fireplaces/wood stoves to roof conditions to asbestos. All wood burning appliances should be inspected by a WETT (Wood Energy Technical Transfer) certified inspector. Given the wide range of potential concerns, it is important for homebuyers to verify specific requirements with the insurance company they intend to use.

Aggressive defence sets tone as Panthers start in win column PECI seniors beat Bayside, Nicholson early in league play adam bramburger

Staff writer

Revenge can be a powerful motivator. After a long off-season to think about their loss to the Bayside Red Devils in last year's playoff quarterfinals, the PECI Senior Basketball Panthers faced their nemesis in the Bay of Quinte season opener Thursday. They wasted little time establishing themselves in a 38-24 win. Trading baskets in the early going, the Panthers went on a 10-0 run during the first quarter to establish a 16-3 lead. That would be enough to keep pace throughout the contest. "Our last game last year, these guys beat us out and all week, our girls came with the attitude they were going to get up early and keep the pedal to the metal," said Panthers coach Rob Garden. "They executed the game plan to perfection and an early run in any game is a huge confidence booster that deflates the other team." At the core of the Panthers' start was aggressive defensive play that resulted in a number of turnovers by the home-court Devils and a quick transition attack. Sam Kuipers and Erin O'Brien were relentless in the open court, while the likes of Alyssa VanRossum and

Courtney Wilson cleaned up the boards effectively. In some ways the Panthers were able to bite the bullet for their aggression as their high team fouls number put Bayside at the line in a double bonus situation early, however the Red Devils went 2-for-11 on first half

free throws. Garden was concerned another team might have hurt the Panthers if given the same number of opportunties. "We talked about it at halftime and we made an adjustment to move our feet a little more and to anticipate instead of reacting.

That comes with conditioning and getting back into the swing of things with timing," he said, noting his team cut its foul count to five after the break. "We made a better effort in the second half, but I wasn't happy with the number of fouls at all."

The second half also saw a steady rotation of new Grade 11 talent onto the court as Garden noted his team has depth and it is going to try to use all of the bodies it can in the game plan. "When you can roll through 11 or 12 girls in any

game, that's an advantage," he said. The Panthers got the bulk of their scoring down low as VanRossum put up 12 points and Wilson 10. O'Brien and Emily Clark contributed five each and Maggie Dorenberg four. Melissa Paradis also got her name on the scoresheet with a basket. Following the win, the Panthers travelled to LaSalle Secondary School in Kingston on the weekend for a tournament against some of the premier teams in their area loop. PECI ended up dropping three contests, falling 38-17 to the host Black Knights, 34-23 to the Sydenham Golden Eagles, and 32-24 to the Regiopolis-Notre Dame Panthers. Against LaSalle, the Panthers saw an aggressive pressure defence and struggled to match the hosts' intensity for the first three quarters. The Panthers brought their intensity against Sydenham, but had a mental breakdown against a pressure defence late in the second quarter as the Eagles put up eight unanswered points. PECI also struggled from the free throw line, shooting 5-for20. Against RegiopolisNotre Dame, Garden thought his team controlled the game for three quarters with a good offence and some different defensive looks, but they went flat in the fourth, turning the ball over and taking uncharacteristic shots.

Pirates come out of the gate quickly with pair of convincing victories Picton holds Port Hope and Napanee to each score only one goal on Wood Chad Ibbotson

The Picton Pirates have kicked off their season in convincing fashion, outscoring their opponents 11–2 through two games. The club started the season last Thursday with a 5– 1 thrashing of the Port Hope Panthers and continued their dominant play with a 6–1 victory over the Napanee Raiders on Tuesday evening. Pirates head coach and general manager Ryan Woodward said he was pleased with the start, but has urged the players to take the season one game at a time. “The big thing this year is we want to be consistent. We want a really hardworking team, but we want

to show up every night and give ourselves the best chance to win,” Woodward said. With the club giving up only two goals while peppering the opposition, Woodward said there has been a significant commitment to team defence. “It all starts in our own end. I've been really happy with our young group of defenders lead by our captain Brandon Peever,” he said. “The guys are working hard and they are doing a good job taking away time and space.” He said with a young defence corps there are bound to be some mistakes, but having veteran goaltender Adam Wood in the cage has limited the impact of those mistakes. “When young guys do

make a mistake he's there to cover up,” Woodward said. “The forwards are buying in, they're not cheating on offence and they're committed to taking care of the puck in our own zone. It's been leading to offence and quick transitions.” On Thursday the Pirates looked hungry right out of the gate. Tim Pandachuck knocked in a loose puck at the side of the Panthers' goal to make it 1–0 at the halfway point on the period. Four minutes later Mitchell Smith netted a power-play marker to double the lead with Ryan Sizer and Peever getting assists. Josh Fulford put Port Hope on the board with a goal three minutes into the second stanza, but the Pirates finished the period

with a one-goal lead. Jack Davison, Smith, and Kyle Dekeyser added goals in the third. “We had a lot of jump in our step and we were hard on the puck, going out and putting everything on net,” Woodward said. “Our depth has been key. We roll our lines — there are matchups within the game — but everybody plays and over the course of 60 minutes it really adds up.” The story was much the same in the club's second game of the week. Picton badly out-shot Napanee, with the final tally coming in at 50–20. Kenny Murduff got the offence running with a goal at 9:59 assisted by Evan Greer.

Dukes rebound from two losses with overtime win in Cobourg Newmarket, Aurora both find two points at Essroc Arena Jason parks

Staff writer

For a hockey club in desperation of a bounce back game, the Wellington Dukes managed to find one in Cobourg on Monday evening. After losing two straight home games at the hands of the Newmarket Hurricanes (Friday) and Aurora Tigers respectively (Sunday), the Dukes came up with a gritty road effort, topping the Cougars 4-3 in overtime. The win stopped a twogame slide for Wellington (3-3-0, six points) and keeps them within shouting distance of East Division- leading Kingston ,who head up the loop with 12 points Wins in Cobourg have been generally hard to come by for Wellington, especially since the Cougars moved into their new Cobourg Community Centre digs but the Dukes managed to hang on and bag their second road win of the season in dramatic fashion. “We haven't had a lot of success in that new building in Cobourg but we got off to a great start,” Wellington coach and general manager Marty Abrams said. “We had some glaring errors that let them back into the game but we got some big time plays in overtime to get us the extra point.” For the second straight road contest, Wellington came out firing and had an early 2-0 lead but unlike their victory in Pickering eight days ago, the locals were unable to maintain a lead. After Josh Finkelstein and Erick Delaurentis pegged Wellington to a 2-0 lead in the first 10 minutes of play, the air was slowly deflated from the Dukes

balloon. Cougar forward Justin Danforth cut the Wellington lead in half just 1:20 after the Delaurentis goal. The Cougars got the only goal of the second frame thanks to Loren Ulett at 13:13. Finally, a bad Wellington collapse allowed Colbie Andrews to put the Cougars back into the driver's seat at 5:09 of the third. Delaurentis' second of the game at 12:07 knotted the game back up at 3-3 and the game stayed tied until overtime. In the extra session, it was rookie blueliner Brody Morris who jumped up in the rush and beat Cougar netminder Cole Mahoney top shelf just 30 seconds in

to lift Wellington to a 4-3 final. Mike Soucier delivered the feed to Morris and Abrams said it was a special effort on both ends that produced the game winning goal. “It was a big-time play by Soucier and it was an even bigger play by Morris,” Abrams said. The 16-year-old blueliner has looked calm and steady in his first few games as a Duke and, if early returns are indicative of future performance, the Corbyville native could be mentioned with the likes of former young Duke defensive standouts such as Curtis Leonard and Jake Heller. “Before the goal, Brody had a great game and we

had gotten a lot of mileage on the back end out of him, Finkelstein, Kyle Paat and Jacob Hetherington,” Abrams said. “He played a big part in this win, he's had a really good start and we think he will go on to bigger and better things.” Wellington also got off to a solid start on Sunday night when they hosted the Tigers, however, Tiger netminder Brett Sinclair stymied Dukes shooters early on, especially in the opening frame when the locals outshot the visitors 188. After a scoreless first, Wellington would break the ice in the second while a man short. Breaking in on a two-onone rush, Jan Kaminsky col-

lected a Craig Campbell rebound and beat Sinclair at 13:51 of the second. That lead looked safe heading towards the second intermission but a bad defensive zone breakdown allowed Aurora's Dylan Wallace to bang home an equalizer with just 26 seconds left. In the third, former Huntsville Otter Daniel Clairmont pushed the Tigers ahead 2-1 at the 8:14 mark with a nifty effort. Cam Nicholl would net his first as a Duke as he pushed a loose puck over the line at 13:11 to square the affair at 2-2 but Mike Sones put the Tigers ahead to stay about two minutes later when his shot from the top of the circle after an-

other Duke defensive miscue beat a screened Hayden Lavigne at 15:07. Dylan Sikura put a steak through the Dukes proverbial heart at 18:08 when his blind shot slipped through Lavigne, making it a 4-2 final in favour of Aurora. For a game that Wellington held the balance of play in, especially in the opening two periods, not getting at least a point was tough to take. “It was a very difficult loss, we might have deserved a better fate but I thought (Sinclair) played a whale of a game,” Abrams said. In getting shut out and out shot on home ice to Newmarket Hurricanes, there aren't too many around these parts that think Wellington deserved anything other than a loss Friday evening. After a scoreless first in which the play was even, the Canes blew the Dukes doors off and outshot Wellington 32-11 in the final 40 minutes. Andrew Pearson got the start in the Wellington net and, despite surrendering a tough goal in the second period, was solid making 40 saves. Had Wellington capitalized on a few of its offensive chances, the club could have worked its way into the game. “I really thought we played a strong game against Hurricanes,” Abrams maintained. “We had some bad breaks around our net, and no breaks at their net and we just couldn't bury the puck.” After scoring four in 60 plus minutes on Monday, The Dukes will be looking to keep the offence clicking Friday when they host the Stouffville Spirit at 7:30 p.m. The Dukes are on the road to Aurora on Saturday night and visit the Tiger cage at 7:30 p.m.

Whitepine takes county title to Deseronto Brandon Peever named captain of Pirates Rockies ousted after two years at the top of league Jason parks

Staff writer

For the first time in its history, the Prince Edward County Men's Fastball League championship trophy will reside off the island. Whitepine Watershed crushed any hopes of a Terra Vista Rockies three-peat Thursday night in Picton with a 9-2 demolishing, winning the best-of-five series three games to one. Whitepine took the drama out of game four early when Jamie Thompson jacked a three-run bomb in the top of the first inning. Nick Brooks also went deep for Deseronto in the fifth inning and drove in three of his own. For team captain Thompson, the win vanquishes the memories of the past two championship series. In 2010, the Deseronto based club (then called the Bulldogs) blew a two-games to-nothing lead to the Rockies and looked on as Terra Vista won their first

PECMFA title. Terra Vista left the drama out of the finals in 2011, sweeping Whitepine in three straight. And after getting down 2-0 this year, the Rockies might have been thinking comeback again until Thompson and company dashed those hopes in dominating fashion in game four. “The guys were excited afterward, no question,” Thompson said. “After game three, we talked about losing two years in a row and the disappointment of losing two years in a row but we remained confident.” Thompson said the club had a different attitude this season, both in their general approach and in game situations. “The guys put in the extra work this year and the championship is a testament to that,” Thompson said. “On nights there were rain outs in Picton and it wasn't raining here (Tyendinaga), the guys would get together and get some extra bp in and it seemed to help. In games, members of the club decided to change their approach if they were previously unable to find success against a particular

pitcher. “Certainly if guys were getting struck out chasing one pitch, they were willing to lay off and look for something else,” he said. “With two strikes, we all choked up on the bat a little and tried to put it in play and good two strike hitting is what it takes to win.” Thompson added the squad owes a debt of gratitude to club sponsor Terry Godsall and his company www.whitepinewatershed.c a. In the consolation finals, The Roblin Family Plumbing Copperheads took the B championship in straight games over Danford Contracting. After the Snakes handled Danford's 6-2 in game one, the clubs played extra innings in Game 2. Down 1-0 into the top of the seventh, Adam Smith belted an inside the park home run to tie it at 1-1. Chris Roblin would drive home the eventual game-winning run with a double in top of the eighth inning. In Game 3, Roblin, Ryan Stevenson and Paul Norman all went deep in a 6-2 Copperhead win.

PIRATES, from page 26

Davison made it 2–0 with a goal at 15:49 with Sizer picking up an assist. Greer rubbed some salt in the wound in the second, scoring a shorthanded goal at 8:13. The Raiders were able to get on the board with a goal by Evan Brown, but 30 seconds later Smith restored the three-goal lead. Rookie defender Jacob Panetta scored a power-play marker to make it 5–1 before the end of the second and Murduff scored his second of the game on the power play at 8:27 of the third to bring the game to a 6–1 final. Despite taking 10 penalties the Pirates didn't give up a power-play goal while going two for three on their own power play. Despite the amount penalty minutes accrued in the game, Woodward said it wasn't cause for concern. He said it's one thing to take selfish penalties, but penalties as a result of hard work is quite another. “We don't want to take unnecessary penalties. Our team competes, they finish hard, we finished a lot of hits (on Tuesday). We protect our goalie and stand up for each

other,” he said. The Pirates announced their captains for the year. Fourth-year defenceman Brandon Peever will wear the C with Greer, Sizer, Brad Jacklin and Davison serving as assistants. Woodward said Peever has shown leadership with his play on the ice as well as leading by example off it, volunteering for many of the club's initiatives. “Brandon leads by example and is well known for his work ethic. We have a nice mix of veteran players and young, highly skilled and determined players this year,”

Woodward said. Additionally, the club announced they have transferred the rights to 19-year-old forward Dylan Burdick to the Port Colborne Pirates Junior B Hockey Club of the Greater Ontario Junior B Hockey League. He said it was a great opportunity to send a player to the next level. “Dylan has NCAA aspirations and we felt this would be a great exposure opportunity for him in Port Colborne,” said Woodward. The Pirates face Deseronto tonight at 7:30 at the Prince Edward Community Centre.

Junior Panthers playing to learn early in season Coach optimistic following opening loss at Bayside

SENIORS, from page 26

AdAm BrAmBurger Staff writer

The Bayside Red Devils used size and experience to get the best of the PECI Junior Panthers 59-26 Thursday, but the season opener wasn't a total write off for the county squad. "No game's a loss as long as you learn from your mistakes," said Panthers coach Andrew Wentworth. "Monday we get back to the gym, we learn from what we did this week — there's some small things we can tighten up on defensively — and we get ready." Taylor Blair and Mackenzie McCullough led the Bayside attack with 18 and 10 points respectively on their home court as their team outpaced the Panthers in each quarter of the game. They opened up a 30-19 lead by halftime kept on cruising forward. Wentworth gave credit where it was due in the contest, but said he's expecting his team will improve as the season progresses. "Bayside is an established club. They've always been strong, but PECI is getting there and the next time we face them it will be a different matchup," he said. Wentworth indicated the Panthers will be a team that will focus on defence primarily, while looking to be

a bit more aggressive offensively than last year's junior team. Veteran Danielle Willis certainly did that during the game as she drove hard to the basket and put up a team-high 11 points. Hannah Smith contributed nine, finding the range early in the game. Wentworth said his Grade 10 leaders led the way in the game, while adding the young team showed it is capable of adapting and following instruction from the coaching staff. "These girls responded to everything we said as coaches. We've set goals in front of them and you

have a great attitude." The PECI juniors also fell to Nicholson Tuesday. Tonght, the Panthers travel to Quinte for a 5 p.m. start.

Still, Garden chose to take a positive look on the team's first tournament. "I stressed with the girls before the tournament, I didn't care what they scores were, but I wanted us to improve our execution, increase our intensity, and make a commitment at the defensive end of the court," he said. "We were the only team in the tournament to not allow another team to score over 40 points." Going into their second game of the season, hosting Nicholson Tuesday, the Panthers got some good news as Courtney Wilson played through a nose injury originally thought to keep her out of the lineup up to two weeks. Gardeen had been facing the idea of major changes to the game plan as fifth-year senior

Jess Palacious injured her knee at Bayside and will be out indefinitely Instead of sitting on the sidelines, Wilson figured prominently in a 46-27 PECI win as she contributed 23 points alone. “Offensively, we were able to feature Courtney and get her the ball at the right time in the right spots,” Garden said. VanRossum contributed six points, including four from the free throw line. As in Thursday’s opener, Garden said the Panthers were able to build on their aggressive defence as they took a 30-7 lead into halftime. During the second half, the Grade 11s again soaked up a lot of playing time and gained confidence. The Panthers will travel to Quinte tonight for a 6:30 p.m. tip.

DONALD GEORGE ANDREWS

April 10, 1923 - October 2, 2011 Dad, you were a fun-loving and genuine trustworthy person. A lover of cruises in warm seas, fine rums and aged ryes, a dueling cribbage match, or taking in the sun with Faye at the island or Delray. Born in Picton and growing up in the depression, you learned the value of a buck and you never forgot. Spending a few years in WWII taught you the value of life, and a good samaritan you would always be. Working in the southern U.S. in your thirties, you learned about humanity itself, and you would listen before passing judgement. A member of the Masonic Lodge and then the Rotary Club, you used what little spare time you had well. On a night at the curling club, where you met and fell in love with Faye Gorsline, the stage was set for three boys. Buying out your father’s paint store, you started working retail to put food on the table for the ever-growing family. Weekends were spent down bay in our little mason or freezing our butts on Jane St. Raising three sons was left in Faye’s hands while you expanded the store and paid the bills. Retiring in ‘82, you took up biking, cruising and warm-weather seeking with Faye. In your eighties, you would look forward to weekends with Greg’s family or mine or both and soon wonder when the house would be quiet again. Faye was blessed to have you as a devoted husband, and Greg and I were lucky to have you as a father. Missed always, The Andrews Family

MEMORIAMS

IRVINE- In loving memory of a dear dad, Robert, who passed away September 26, 1985. Although we smile and make no fuss No one misses him more than us And when old times we oft recall That's when we miss her most of all. Always remembered by Arthur, Nancy, grandchildren & great grandchildren. WANNAMAKER, In loving memory of our dear sister Eileen, who passed away September 24, 2006. No farewell words were spoken No time to say goodbye A daily thought, a silent tear, A secret wish that you were here An empty space that no one can fill We miss you Eileen and always will. Remembered by Loretta, Helena and Fern

Enrollment QHC makes revisions to new hospital plan to increase efficiency Corporation increases closely in public working with PEFHT to schools maximize savings Jason Parks

Staff writer

Efforts to bring a new hospital to Prince Edward County continue to work through the prescribed bureaucratic measures. On Tuesday at the monthly Quinte Health Care board meeting, president and chief executive officer Mary Clare Egberts provided a brief update on a planned 135,000 sq. ft. fully-integrated health centre and hospital that would replace the existing Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital. Stage 1 of the proposal was presented to the Ministry of Health and Long term Care in late May and the plan which aims to bring a rural hospital, accommodations for the Prince Edward Family

The updated plan can be submitted to the Ministry as soon as QHC gets its precapital submission approved by the South East Local Health Integration Network â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are still working on completing business case but in the mean time we will be in contact with the SE LHIN, reminding them we are waiting on their approval,â&#x20AC;? she said. In other QHC news: â&#x2013;  The hospital group reported an operational deficit as of July 31 of $975,000. QHC senior staff had been assuming a deficit of around $515,000 to this point of the year, meaning the hospital is currently carrying a negative variance of $460,000. The chair of the QHC audit and resource committee, John Embregts, said the higher-than-anticipated deficit is due in part to higher utility costs, a slight labour variance, lower patient revenue and higher medical/surgical supply costs.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;It's a seasonal thing- we expect an operational deficit this time of year, but this slightly higher then we were anticipating,â&#x20AC;? he said. The higher operating deficit is in spite of QHC making gains in several key areas of cost overrun. Since April the hospital has managed to close four unfunded medical beds at Belleville General Hospital; has reduced the usage of surge beds; significantly reduced the number of Alternate Level of Care patients and decreased overtime hours (17 per cent over last year) and sick time hours (one per cent). QHC is expected to grapple with the deficit by continuing trends on sick time and overtime hours, reducing medical/surgical expenses and looking at drug utilization opportunities. â&#x2013;  It appears the hospital has gotten through the largest drug shortage in modern history largely unscathed. Doug McGregor of the

quality of patient care committee said Sandoz, the world's second largest producer of injectable drugs and fundamental supplier in of the Canadian health system has come back on line. Fire and quality concerns from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration slowed production at the Boucherville, Quebec plant earlier this year but McGregor said the plant was back online earlier this month. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It does appear Sandoz is starting to meet the drug inventory requirements of Canada,â&#x20AC;? he said. Through proactive management of its drug supplies over the past seven months, QHC was able to overcome the shortage and there was no incidents of the hospital being unable to treat a patient or their symptoms due to the shortage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It's thanks to a truly outstanding efforts by the team at QHC that we were able to make it through the shortage, McGregor said.

The number of pupils attending public schools in Prince Edward and Hastings counties are up over spring projections and the trend will likely lead to the hiring of new educational staff. Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board superintendent of business services Dave Rutherford provided public school board trustees an elementary and secondary student enrollment update on Monday evening and, for a board habitually dealing with declining enrollment, the numbers are pointing to a positive trend. While the numbers of actual students in Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board is once again down over the past school year, the drop isn't as drastic as in years past. The number of total elementary students attending in 2012-2013 is 10,429, a drop of 14 students but an increase of 71 over the springtime projection of of 10,358. In terms of secondary students, a total of 5,590 students are attending high schools in the region this fall, a drop from 2011-2012 of 257 students but an increase of 63 over the projected 5,527 students. For a system that receives its funding from the Ministry of Education on a per-pupil basis and uses the forecasts as part of its budget process, the enrollment update is good news. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We're pleased to report that overall enrollment is slightly higher than what had projected in the spring,â&#x20AC;? Rutherford told trustees. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are still in a period of decline, particularly in the elementary family however, we are starting to see some levelling off at that level and that's a positive sign. The positive news is will be deploying some additional staff to elementary and secondary schools to meet the needs of our students .â&#x20AC;? Broken down further, primary numbers are actually growing as the board saw the ranks of those attending Kindergarten through Grade 3 increase by 66 students. This is mostly due to the ramp up of the all-day Kindergarten program however, the board will not recoup the complete cost of offering full-day Kindergarten at all local public schools until 2014-2015. This year the board has 996 full-day kindergarten students in 38 classes a 20 schools, however, the school board has been capped by the Ministry of Education. The province is covering the costs of 910 students in year three of the five-year roll out. Rutherford said the board is obligated to offer the program in spite of the funding cap. Full-day kindergarten is a staged process and the Ministry of Education is controlling how fast it expands,â&#x20AC;? Rutherford said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;910 students is what we get funding for this year and the board is picking up the extra costs of running the program.â&#x20AC;?

Health Team and space for other community health and wellness partners was greeted with support as well as some suggested revisions. According to Egberts, the presentation to the capital branch of the ministry was positive but there were concerns the proposed facility would meet all desired efficiencies. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to make sure we have the most clinical and service efficiencies built into the model,â&#x20AC;? Egberts told the Gazette. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are currently working with the PEFHT in order to maximize the savings we can gain by working together as well as looking at square footage and there have been some reductions in that area.â&#x20AC;? Currently, the plan calls for 82,000 sq. Ft to be occupied by the new hospital and the other 53,000 to be occupied by the PEFHT and other partners. Egberts expects the final touches on the revisions to be made later this month.

ARTrageous event gives public accessible introduction to art forms $40,000 Celebrate Ontario grant helps open studio doors for series of one-hour workshops with professional artists chad ibbotson

Staff writer

A new county event will be taking a hands-on approach to cultivating appreciation for all things art. Representatives from Taste the County and the Arts Trail unveiled the event at an interactive and informative media event at The Red Barns in Picton on Monday morning. Dubbed ARTrageous, the event is a multi-day celebration which not only showcases the multitude of artistic talent in the county, but also encourages visitors to explore their own. The new event was made possible through a Celebrate Ontario grant of $40,000 and will tale place from Oct. 5–8 at locations throughout the county. Organizers urge residents to indulge their own creativity by taking part in painting, pottery, glass blowing, photography and even blacksmith workshops. Other events include guided bus tours, studio and galley visits, lunch and learn talks, demonstrations and a premiere gala event beginning at 7 p.m. on Oct. 5 at Grange of Prince Edward Vineyards & Estate Winery. New Taste the County operations co-ordinator Lise Rouleau said Arabella Art & Design Magazine editor-in-chief Debra Usher will speak at the opening gala. “She's giving a keynote speech on community and art — how we need to support it, how integral it is to a community,” she said. “It's going to be a lot of fun, we're looking forward to it.” With a plethora of arts events taking place in the county throughout the year,

appreciating art Near the Red Barns just outside of Picton, artist Andrew Csafordi and Taste the County op-

Rouleau said ARTrageous would make its own identity through the hands-on component. “This one is different because it's interactive. People themselves get to become the artists, get a inner view of what an artist does and the work involved in it,” she said. She said the event also extends its reach by offering a more affordable and accessible introduction to different types of art. “It's only a one-hour workshop so you don't have to commit to four or five hours in something you

may not like,” she said. “You can choose two or three workshops in a day and try different mediums to see what you like. It's more cost effective if families want to come.” While some of the workshops are geared toward adults, Rouleau said there will be plenty of things for younger visitors to do as well. She offered the pottery workshop instructed by potter Tony Campbell at The Red Barns as an example. “Red Barns is great for that because they're family (friendly),” Rouleau said.

SPLENDID STUDIO TOUR

In spite of poor weather on Saturday morning, tour attendance was brisk all weekend with hundreds of visitors viewing and buying locally made and crafted artwork.. (Jason Parks/Gazette staff)

Artist Andrew Csafordi designed the logo for the event. Rouleau said organizers saw the logo as an opportunity to benefit local artists and showcase their talent. “We wanted it to benefit the artists in the community,” Rouleau said. “It's really a marketing tool we've been able to use.” Taste the County chief executive officer Jeremiah MacKenzie said art is a cornerstone of the county community. “Inspiration runs deep when you live in the county,” he said. “This

event, ARTrageous, is about the men and women who call this place home and have dedicated their lives to creating art.” He said the event “approaches the appreciation of beauty in a different way.” “The event is focused on the artists and their processes. I'm confident that after you spend some time learning about their craft and their passion you'll see art in a totally different way,” he said. Paulette Greer of SideStreet Gallery in Wellington will be hosting an art fram-

ing workshop over the weekend. She said the ARTrageous will be more interactive than most county art events. Greer said SideStreet gallery features the work of 180 artists and she wanted to hold a workshop that would be inclusive. She said she already does a lot of framing for artists in the Gallery right now and, after being approached by Joanna McFarland of Suites on the Lake Studio, decided to do a workshop on finishing a piece of art with a frame. “That's what the workshop is — learning how to put it all together, what to pick, what kind of mattes to use and then they actually go home with a finished piece of work they can hang on the wall,” she said. “A lot of times you do a workshop and where does it go? It goes in a drawer, in a cupboard — you don't actually get to take it home and hang it on the wall. That's why I thought this was an interesting idea for me.” It being the first year for the event Greer said there are bound to bound to be a few hiccups, but she said she believes it will be a great event. “I've been involved in the art world a long time. There are going to be glitches, but you have to start somewhere and I think it's going to be a wonderful event that hopefully will keep going on and on,” she said. ARTrageous kicks off Friday, Oct. 5 and features workshops, demonstrations and talks at 15 locations across the county. Workshops cost $30 per person while open galleries, demonstrations and art talks are free. There are 75 tickets available for the premiere party at a cost of $75.

Pasternak to premiere new show

County playwright Suzanne Pasternak is about to offer a sneak peek at her new show, which again features stories from close to home. In this work,, The County Show... Our Legends, Folklore, and Music, Pasternak will touch on 30 years of primary research, where she collected oral histories and archival research pertaining to the history of Prince Edward County. “I have dedicated my body of work to bringing the history of Prince Edward County to life on the stage,” Pasternak said. “The County Show is a reworking of one of my earlier folk operas, Solomon Mouck, which premiered in 1992 and only had two performances.” Pasternak said Mark Despault also joined her in writing some fantastic music for the show and he will be appearing as a guest artist during the two presentations at Black River Chapel Saturday, Oct. 6. Despault will be joining some very accomplished performers on stage as Emily Fennell and Natasha Pasternak will return to the county to perform. Both have had prominent roles in past works by Suzanne Pasternak. Fennell premiered the

role of Minerva and performed with that show from 1994 up until 2003. “This is the first time since 2003 that I have had the honour to perform with her,” said Pasternak, who added a spooky coincidence is that Fennell is related to many of the historical characters portrayed in the show. Natasha Pasternak had the leading role with Festival Players of Prince Edward County for three years, first with Picton Papers, then later with her mother’s show Ship of Fire.. Pasternak said she was thrilled both women would

return given their promising music careers elsewhere. “I am thrilled the girls are putting down their electric guitars to come home to their roots music,” she said. Well-known performers Rick Zimmerman and David Colwell will also star in the show, rounding out a talented cast. The limited engagement runs at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. Oct. 6 and tickets are available for $20 through Books & Company, Hicks General Store, or directly from Pasternak at 613-476-6143.

Quaker historians to meet Saturday

The Isaiah Tubbs Resort will be the site of the 40th annual conference of the Canadian Friends Historical Association this Saturday and Sunday. The association concerns itself with the history of the Quakers. Saturday’s session will feature a keynote dinner speech by Avery Dorland, a descendant of one of the first Quaker settling families in Canada and a noted speaker and storyteller. For tickets to the event, please contact Gladys Castonguay at 905841-3504 or at secretary@cfha.info. On Sunday, a traditional Friends Meeting for Worship will be held at the Bloomfield Centre For Creativity (the former Baxter Feeds building) beginning at 11 a.m. The meeting is open to the public as well as the members and is a direct descendant of the very first Quaker meeting in Canada in 1798 near Adolphustown. -Staff

tail store. The family farm has been producing apples since 1850. The location near Lake Ontario gives a moderating effect on local air temperatures and it also benefits from fertile soil — ideal conditions for cultivating fruits of unparalleled flavour and quality. They grow over 15 varieties of apples at their two orchards, which comprise approximately 40 acres of apple trees and 12 acres of grapes. The orchards produce roughly 1,600 tonnes of apples each year. Among the varieties that they use to create their ciders are Bulmer's Norman, Ida Red, Russets, Northern Spy, Yarlington Mill, Dabinett, Michelin and Tremlett's Bitter. These apples provide tannins and acidity — key ingredients when making quality cider.

In addition, they grow common varieties such as Cortland, Red and Golden Delicious and Jersey and Marshall Mac. Although they make several varieties their flagship product is a dry sparkling cider. Fresh and crisp, like a perfectly ripe apple, it offers aromas of sweet Ida Red apples and its good acidity delivers a pleasing finish. Their most exclusive product, the award winning County Ice Cider, is crafted from Russet, Ida Red and Northern Spy apples—varieties that do no fall when ripe, but remain on the tree through freezing temperatures. Like grapes used to make ice wine, it is this exposure to extreme conditions that causes the natural sugars within the fruit to increase and become concentrated. Hand-harvested in subzero conditions, the apples are pressed and the resulting nectar is fermented for about nine months. The result is an ambrosial beverage prized for its perfect balance of sweet and tart. Amber-hued, its taut acidity is the perfect foil for its delicious caramel apple and crème brûlée flavours. In recent years, the County Cider Company has expanded its production to include classic wine varietals such as Chardonnay, Pinot gris, and Pinot noir. Grown on their Waupoos and Adolphus Reach estates, every grape is hand-harvested and crafted, by winemaker Jenifer Dean, into wine that

embodies the area's rich terroir. In fact, their gravelly soils are often described as rivaling the best in Burgundy. Their wines available for purchase at our tasting room and retail store. Visitors are invited to take advantage of the breathtaking million-dollar view of Lake Ontario from their patio and enjoy a cold, refreshing cider or a glass of wine and a light lunch. This is definitely one of the nicest patios to visit when out "sippin in the county". And don't forget, it's not just apple cider at County Cider, they also have some greatwine!

A couple weeks ago I did an article on Bergeron Estate Winery and discussed how they also had a thriving apple cider business. This week we are visiting the County Cider Company & Estate Winery. This is a special place for me as my son just loves it! Whenever he visits from Ottawa he likes to head over there for their cider and of course I heartily agree as they also make some great wine! The County Cider Company & Estate Winery is a family-operated estate winery specializing in hard ciders (in North America hard cider is an alcoholic drink made from fermented apple juice.) Carefully crafted by cidermaster and owner Grant Howes from the best apples grown on their family farm and nearby orchards, their ciders are made with 100-per-cent pure apple juice. Following the American Revolution of 1776 the Township of Marysburgh — home to the County Cider Company — was one of many established for the settlement of United Empire Loyalists. Named in honour of Princess Mary, a daughter of King George III, it became home to a small group of disbanded German mercenaries under former Lieutenant Baron von Reitzenstein. This party, numbering about 40 persons, was one of the earliest German-speaking groups to settle in Ontario. By October 1784 they had begun to clear and cultivate the land. Henry David and his wife Elizabeth were among these early settlers and it was in 1830, that their son Conrad David, was given title to the lot, which the County Cider Company now calls home. Today, the 1832 Conrad David House is an area landmark. Set on the brow of the Waupoos escarpment, the stone house is an excellent example of Regency Cottage architecture. It features dramatic French doors, oversized windows and veranda as well as a hipped roof. Next door, the property's picturesque 1832 stone barn houses the County Cider Company’s tasting room and re-

Plan for planting your garden in 2013 while this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s experiences are still fresh

The end of active gardening for 2012 is in sight so we thought this could be a good time to talk about planning for next year while the experiences of this year are still fresh on our minds. This is an excellent time to draw a map of your garden. While plants are still up and identifiable, why not capture their location and names on a garden map? In fact, why not capture their seeds? If you have plants that you particu-

larly enjoy and would like more of them, now is a great time to take seeds for next yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s planting season. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also nice to give seeds from our gardens to a gardening friend. A package of seeds from your garden is a thoughtful thing to tuck in to a hostess gift. Perennial seeds can be sown now just like Mother Nature does. Annual seeds will need to be placed in an envelope and kept in a cool and dry place

until next spring to go into the garden or to start inside in trays when the weather is still too cool to put seeds directly into the ground. I always like having some seeds sprouting indoors in March and April. It gets me in the gardening mood early. As you map your gardens, think about what you might move next spring and make a note of it now. Think about what plants you have seen elsewhere and would

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fergusson, a trusted name in home heating for over 25 yearsâ&#x20AC;?

like to add to your garden and make a note of those too. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good time to do this chore while there isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a lot of heavy work to be done and while our memories are still fresh about what we liked and didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like about our gardens this year. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a bad idea to take some photographs as well. You can tuck the garden map and the photographs into a garden journal if you have one or you can start one. Any three ring notebook will do as a journal. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good place to stash plant labels as well. I was recently asked to look at someoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hydrangeas and offer some pruning advice only to find that the hydrangeas werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hydrangeas at all, they were viburnums. They had been purchased several years prior but the name was not recorded anywhere nor was a label saved for identification later on. We just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t usually think about recording plant names when we purchase them but sometimes we find weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to know more about that mystery plant in our garden. Having a journal helps to do that. It would be nice to know which viburnum this person has because there are

ASKâ&#x20AC;&#x2C6;Aâ&#x20AC;&#x2C6; MASTERâ&#x20AC;&#x2C6; GARDENER

KATHY MACPHERSON

hundreds of varieties of viburnums, many quite similar to each other. The bloom heads on many viburnums looks exactly like hydrangeas only the leaves are unique to viburnums but the plants are treated quite differently when it comes to pruning. Right now we should be thinking about plants that will not overwinter outdoors and bring them in as the nights are getting quite cool. I have two Rosemary plants that will cease to be vibrant unless I get them out of the ground and into pots very soon.

Plant catalogs usually come out in the winter time and get us all excited about next yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s garden. It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hurt to get a jump on getting the catalogs we want. Now is the time to do some internet sleuthing to get on the mailing lists for the catalogs we want to receive later this winter. Make a note to watch for the tree giveaway by Quinte Conservation in the early spring. They have lots of bare root trees and they give them away so if you are in the market for some trees, this is the place to go. Planning for next yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s garden is a nice activity now while our days are sunny and pleasant and while we can still see and remember how our gardens looked and behaved this past summer. Last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s article on cucumbers was attributed to me but it was actually written by Sandra Goranson. Sorry for the mix-up, Sandy. - Kathy MacPherson is a member of the Prince Edward County Master Gardeners.

Again, the audience was transported to a dreamlike realm by his aural poem of the planetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chaos. Ably presented by the technical expertise of the composer in plumbing the aural potentials of the instruments, and by the musicians in fulfilling those potentials, the music was almost operatic in passion, with the â&#x20AC;&#x153;voicesâ&#x20AC;? of the violins and viola calling to each other in melodic motifs of winged flights. In the latter half, the music took an abrupt turn into reminiscences of 1920s cabaret, Weill-like in its syncopation, as if the soaring aspirations of humanity had been brought down to earth with the rat-atat busy-ness of civilization. But, optimistically, Mozetich took us back into flight with a recapitulation of the opening theme.

On Saturday, the evening began with a pre-concert recital by pianist Luke Bell, whom the Festival has been nurturing in young artist presentations over the past few years. Those farsighted enough to attend heard an emerging artist of arresting maturity, who demonstrated technical precision in the exposed mathematics of the Bach Partita in C Minor, and his ability to convey emotional and expressive import in Mozetichâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Three Pieces for Piano Solo. Bell will soon be leaving for Europe, and we wish him well in his continuing music development. Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s concert was dedicated to the memory of Carl Kidd, who, with his wife Betsy, was an avid supporter of the Festival from its inception, hosting annual benefit concerts at their Bloomfield home. Kidd was a much loved musician and friend, sorely missed. Soprano Ellen Wieser opened the concert with Samuel Barberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cycle, Hermit Songs, settings of short poems by medieval Gaelic monks. With her silvery lyric soprano, she demonstrated her technical control of her instrument, bringing differing emotional colours to voice as she ran the gamut from meditative to comic, from sweetly light-hearted to deeply thoughtful, ably supported by Stephane Lemelinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s piano. The eveningâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s finale was the Quintet for Piano and Strings by Cesar Franck, as performed by Lemelin and the Penderecki Quartet. Franck wrote this piece in 1879, and its lavishly sentimental melodies and thick harmonies mark it as a late Romantic work, revealing the influence of the Germanic school of Beethoven and Brahms on their French colleague. The passionately large dimensions of the work were given both grandeur and intimacy by the musicians, bringing the evening to a resounding close and driving the audience to their feet. For this reviewer, Mozetichâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hymn of Ascension was the highlight of the evening, as indeed, his music proved to be throughout the festival. Written for string

quartet and organ, it seemed to be almost religious, chronicling the rise of humanity from the primal ooze to flights of higher thought. From the resonances of the organâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bass to the highest pitches of the strings, the music evolved from repeated notes of darkness to soaring melody. At once drenched in sensuality and saturated with spirituality, the music began with strings in slowly ascending pitches, like an amorphous, omnipresent spirit of creation, before abruptly descending to the organâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pulsing bass, as if thought had been made flesh. Then slowly and painstakingly, the strings â&#x20AC;&#x201C; closest in instrument to the outcry of the human voice â&#x20AC;&#x201C; strove back to the upper pitches, as if flesh aspired to thought. This is a profoundly moving piece of work. Mozetich is one of Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most performed composers, and is the most sought by organizations for commissioned work. This reviewer ventures to suggest that the optimism which is discernible in his musical themes strikes a chord with his grateful listeners. Throughout his career, as he developed his own voice, Mozetich created a body of work which combines exquisite melody of sensual and at times earthy aural delight, that nevertheless carries spiritual resonance. This writer is moved to thank Lemelin and the PEC Music Festival for affording the chance to discover this remarkable composer, Marjan Mozetich. The 2012 Festival concluded with a reception during which audience and performers mingled, as Artistic Director Stephane Lemelin thanked the donors, sponsors, and especially, the hardworking members of the Music Festival committee who make the music possible. On Sunday morning, they got down to the business of putting together next yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Festival, the celebratory tenth season, marking the first decade of what has become one of Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most exciting annual music events.

All of the staff members at Community Care have for-

mal training in the management of volunteers and are skilled at matching the skills and interests of volunteers with the volunteer position. We’re always recruiting new volunteers because there are more seniors to help, more things to be done. At the present time, we have openings at the Thrift Shop. This is a social experience with a minimum time requirement of three hours a week. We can accommodate volunteers who are away for several weeks a year (some are snowbirds) so don’t let that stop you from putting your name forward. The study above points out that current volunteers are the best recruiters of volunteers. Feel free to go into Community Care’s Thrift Shop at 281 Main Street in Picton and ask the volunteers about their experiences in the shop. They’re happy to share and will encourage you to come to the office and apply. We have a Thrift Shop orientation session coming up very soon so we’re anxious to recruit new volunteers and have them attend. If working in the Thrift

Usually they manage to find something they need.” “I get to know people and people get to know me.” “ Working in the Thrift Shop has become part of my routine and I can give back to my community by raising money to help seniors.” “It’s fun!” “It’s like Christmas every day.” According to a Canadian Heritage study on Why People Volunteer ( www.nald.ca), for people working in volunteer-based agencies it is essential to “ensure that volunteer assignments are satisfying and fulfilling. This has a payback beyond volunteers remaining with the organization. According to several surveys, the best agents for recruitment are volunteers who share their positive experiences with others. Surveys have shown that most individuals who volunteer learn about the opportunity from personal contact. About 40 per cent become involved because someone asks them and over 25 per cent learn about the work from a relative or friend involved in the activity. Less than 20 per cent seek out the activity on their own. Every satisfied volunteer can thus be seen as a potential recruiter.” At Prince Edward Community Care for Seniors we have a myriad of volunteer positions that will appeal to
