News - Batawa - The new location for the Trenton Kinsmen Fishing Tackle Show in Batawa was an overwhelming success on Sunday. “We had first-time vendors calling us,� said organizer Bill Newbery. “We were 14 years at the arena but this space has so much more room. People are already booking for the September 20 fishing and hunting show here.� The vendors loved it too. “You can spread out,� said Frankford vendor Patrick Daradick with a display of vintage fishing tackle. “It’s much more relaxed. Too bad it’s not spring weather.� The Batawa Community Centre was filled with vendors in all three rooms and the place was packed with fishing enthusiasts. There was very little room in the parking lot and people were parked on the road between the snowdrifts. There were some unusual products as well as fishing lures and poles. Crystal Crawford from Port Hope had handmade native crafts including dream catchers, medicine bags and moose hide slippers from Native Dreams. Adam Davidson from Cobourg had a selection of tin “Man Cave� signs. “We have some for the women too,� he said with a smile.

News – Quinte West – Will winter never end? “We haven’t had a winter like this in 30 years,� said Mayor John Williams at Quinte West council Monday night. Public Works manager Chris Angelo said the city has already spent $700,000 on salt and sand for the roads this year. Councillor Jim Harrison asked if Public Works is including increasing costs for next year. Angelo said that is included in the 2014 budget. He added that potholes are also

expensive and time-consuming. “We spend a fair bit of time filling potholes when we’re not plowing,� Angelo said. Councillor Paul Kyte asked if Public Works is predicting another nor’easter coming this way. Angelo said there will be flurries and more snow. “We are monitoring the weather all the time,� he said. John Williams said the roads crews are doing a great job. “I don’t want to compare us with other municipalities, but just drive down number two highway,� he said.

Harrison said he just got back from a roads conference and, “It’s great to be home.� Councillor Leslie Roseblade asked if these potholes are a big cost to repair. Angelo said they are included in their roads budget. He noted his staff may have to reprioritize their list after a spring review. “The number of potholes is fairly extensive this year,� he admitted. Councillor Jim Alyea said he has had a lot of complaints about the potholes, but there are still effects from the ice storm. He said that Please see “Public Works� on page 4

in one place there are trees still hanging low over the road. Trucks are scraping the side of the tree branches as they drive by, and he is concerned that a nearby swamp will make it worse when it overflows in the spring. Staff also discussed Bill 69 and the cost of construction going up for municipalities. Finance director David Clazie said they will have a shorter time to pay and it will put the power back to the contractors. Councillor Fred Kuypers commented it may create more lawsuits. He asked if private contractors are allowed to dump snow in the pit. Angelo said that has been in place for many years. Councillor Ron Hamilton commented on a new doctor at the Quinte West Medical Centre from the doctor recruitment program. Hamilton also said there are too many protests in the area that take away police from our community. “Our own community doesn’t get looked after,� he said. Williams noted that he had a letter back from Belleville council in response to Quinte West’s request for support in establishing the federal government’s Joint Task Force-2 in Quinte West. Belleville has fully supported the program including the acquisition of all lands to relocate the base here. Inspector Mike Reynolds noted there will be an all-day conference in Batawa on March 27 called Building Safe Communities, with keynote speakers and lunch. Williams said he is going to talk to the Minister of the Environment this week with Member of Parliament Rick Norlock and Peterborough cruise operator Mark Eckert about Trent Severn Waterway service levels. It was noted that a group has been formed called Canal District to support economic interests on the Murray Canal, Bay of Quinte and Presqu’ile. The first meeting was held last week in Brighton.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Fair Elections Act isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fair at all

Dear Editor Daryl Krampâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s comments in the press last week in support of the (Un) Fair Elections Act were typical Conservative propaganda. Equally disappointing was that he voted (along with the entire Conservative caucus) against the Oppositionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s call for cross-Canada Committee Meetings to discuss the Fair Elections Act. Think about that! Rather than being able to tell Parliamentarians in their own communities the concerns they might have about this Act, Canadians were told they could drive to Ottawa or Skype in if they wanted to provide feedback to one of the most important rights of citizenship: the right to vote in fair elections. There is much that is not fair about the Fair Elections Act. It is a blatant attempt by the Harper Government to once again undermine our democracy. Changes to the act that minimize the vote in a sector of the population least likely to vote Conservative is deplorable. Once again, Harper is showing his true colours: Harperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Government is only interested in their base, plus the 10% of the populace that they have microtargeted to most likely vote Conservative. Forget the rest of the electorate; forget about the rest of Canadians. They would prefer the rest of us just to stay home. What is even more disconcerting is the Harper Government goal of minimizing another thorn in their side, by minimizing the ability of the Chief Electoral OfďŹ cer to perform the duties of his original mandate. If they truly wanted a fairer electoral process they would give the Chief Electoral ofďŹ cer more power and more importantly more resources to perform his task. The problems

A little tax season help

in the Act are not with the mandate of the Chief Electoral ofďŹ cer, but with the lack of resources for him to properly investigate the wrongdoings perpetuated on an unsuspecting electorate. But Harperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Conservatives do not wish to ďŹ x the real problems with the Act. They would rather ďŹ x the problem with the Chief Electoral OfďŹ cer investigating their misdeeds. This is a common thread with the Harper Government: if they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like someone looking too closely or disagreeing with their view, then attack, bully, manipulate, obfuscate, circumvent and ultimately change the laws to better suit their purposes. We cannot allow this to continue! Not only are our democratic institutions being undermined, the future of our country is being unnecessarily jeopardised just to appease their desire to rule. We need to once again strengthen our democratic institutions. More importantly, we need to start to ďŹ nd common ground. We have to get past the polarization, the â&#x20AC;&#x153;us against themâ&#x20AC;? mentality. We must include not just more voters, but more voices in the laying out a vision for our country â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a vision where we ďŹ nd common ground and work together for a better Canada, a Canada that will once again lead the world in doing what is right because it is the right thing to do! We can no longer run our country in a manner that suits the interests of a party. That path leads to ruin for all Canadians. Canadians deserve better and should demand better. Mike Bossio Federal Liberal Candidate Contestant for Hastings, Lennox and Addington

Dear Editor, Are your readers aware of the fact, when completing their 2013 income tax, if they check off the box to receive the OTB (Ontario Trillium BeneďŹ ts) in a lump sum they will not receive a cheque until June 2015.

OPINION

Connected to your community

A premature history of the second Cold War Editorial – The first mistake of the Ukrainian revolutionaries was to abandon the agreement of February 23 to create a national unity government, including some of the revolutionary leaders, that would administer the country until new elections in December. It would have left President Viktor Yanukovych in office until then, but with severely diminished powers, as the constitution would have been changed to restore the Gwynne Dyer authority of parliament. Leaving a man who ordered the murder of dozens of protesters in power even temporarily was a bitter pill to swallow, but it had tacit Russian support because it saved President Vladimir Putin’s face. However, the crowds on Independence Square refused to accept the deal, and Yanukovych was forced to flee. Parliament subsequently ratified his removal, but it was the mob, and especially the right-wing fighting groups like Praviy Sektor, who led, and the leadership who followed. Putin was humiliated, and he was given the pretext for claiming that Ukraine had fallen to a “fascist coup” as a justification, however flimsy, for rejecting the legitimacy of the new Ukrainian government. The second grave error – and this one was entirely unforced – was the new government’s decision to repeal the law giving Russian equal status as an official language in provinces with large Russian-speaking populations. It delighted Ukrainianspeaking ultra-nationalists in the west of the country, but it needlessly alienated the two-fifths of Ukraine’s population who speak Russian as their first language. So now Putin is bringing pressure on the new Ukrainian government by backing a secessionist movement in Crimea (where three-fifths of the people speak Russian). The rubberstamp Russian parliament has also granted him authority to use Russian troops elsewhere in Ukraine to “protect” Russians – by which it seems to mean Ukrainians in eastern Ukraine who speak Russian, although they are not actually under attack. Putin has not yet sent Russian troops into the eastern parts of Ukraine. However, pro-Russian crowds have appeared in cities like Kharkov, Donetsk and Lugansk demanding Russian “protection” amid plausible reports that many people in those crowds are actually Russians imported from just across

the border for the occasion, and not Russian-speaking Ukrainians at all. The promised Ukrainian election on May 25 may never happen. The Ukrainian army has been mobilised, and actual fighting could be only days away if the Russians invade eastern Ukraine, or attack the encircled Ukrainian garrisons in Crimea. Maybe Putin is just bluffing; more likely, he doesn’t yet know himself how far he is willing to go. But one thing generally leads to another, and some bluffs are hard to walk away from. Are we on the brink of a new Cold War? It wouldn’t be a hot war, except in Ukraine. Nobody will send troops to defend Ukraine, nor should they. Nobody is in position to stop Russia from conquering Ukraine if it chooses to, and turning it into a wider European war (or a world war) would not help matters. In any case, Moscow would probably not try to conquer all of Ukraine. Kyiv and the west would fight very hard, and after they were defeated they would continue to resist a Russian occupation with guerilla tactics, including terrorism. Putin doesn’t need that, so part of Ukraine would remain free, and call for outside help. It would come, in the form of financial and military aid, and maybe even what has hitherto been rigorously excluded from the discussion: NATO membership. And there Russia and everybody in NATO would sit for the next five or ten or twenty years in a frozen confrontation that would include a trade embargo, an arms race, and a remote but real possibility of a nuclear war. This is not at all what Putin intends or expects, of course. He is calculating that once he controls the Russian-speaking parts of Ukraine, he will be able to enforce a restructuring of the country as a federation in which the government of the eastern, Russian-speaking part will be permanently under Russia’s thumb, and will have a veto on the decisions of the central government. But Putin’s calculations about Ukraine have been wrong every single time since the turn of the century. He backed Yanukovych before 2004, and the Orange Revolution proved him wrong. He backed Yanukovych even more enthusiastically after 2010; the policy blew up in his face again. And here he is yet again, backing Yanukovych as the president-inexile of his Russia-friendly fantasy version of Ukraine. His calculations are wrong. If he continues down this road, he will cause a quite needless political disaster.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Informed voters have the power to make change Dear Editor I feel compelled to write this letter because of the things I have read or heard in the news. We all know that Wynne will have to call an election sooner or later. Hopefully sooner before we are even further down the toilet than we are now. Hence the time is now to start following what this collection of clowns we call politicians are saying. Irregardless of the “fact” that we all know we can’t trust a politician’s promises, especially at election time, you can still glean some insights into the way they think. (scary as that may be.) Also look at their past performance and voting record on different bills and such. How many times has a politician said one thing and then voted the opposite. We all know these self-serving liars will promise what you want to hear until they get elected and then it’s so sorry, no can do. If you vote without knowing the issues you are just as bad and useless as the ones who don’t vote. If you vote for a person or party just because your parents did you are part of the problem and not too smart either. If you think jokers care

about you give your head a shake, they don’t unless it’s good for their career. People, if you are literate at all you “know” that politicians always look after themselves first. Sure, once in a while they throw us a bone, but only after all their buddies and loud mouth special interest nuts have picked it pretty clean. Politicians know that special interest groups get some voters out so they will entertain their ideas no matter how zany or unrealistic their demands. We do have the power to change things. Informed voting is one of those powers. Remember we hire politicians by voting and we pay them through taxes. So contrary to popular belief and the way politicians think, they are our employees. It is time to start making these egotistical and self-serving bunch of clowns toe the line and start doing what the majority of us know is right. After all that’s what democracy is all about.

Memories of 2008 come flooding back By Stephen Petrick Editorial – I’m not an expert on weather, but I subscribe to the theory that every few years Mother Nature gives you an abominable winter. This seems to be one of those. The image of tall snow banks and the chill of -20C March weather is taking me back to 2008, the last time we got a mega wallop of snow that lasted into spring. The snow that year eventually turned to water and the Moira River in Belleville overflowed, leading to stories of sorrow, laughter and even some heroics. I’ll never forget it because it was part of my first full year living in our region of river-based communities and one of my more interesting experiences as a young journalist. I had moved from my native town of Kingston to Belleville just months earlier to work for a daily newspaper. The loneliness of such a move wasn’t helped by the bone-chilling cold and relentless amount of snow. The biggest blizzard, I recall, was the last one. It lasted two full days of March Break and once snow ploughs got on the roads, the snow banks seemed about ten feet high. I remember it took me hours to shovel off just a single parking space at my apartment. The sight of large snow banks in broad daylight at 7 p.m. was a memorable experience, too, since daylight savings time had just moved to mid-March. It was hard for me to believe that opening day of the Major League Baseball season – my own personal benchmark for the official start of spring – was only two weeks away. But the snow eventually melted and it did so fast. By late March the Moira River along Belleville flowed like a white-water rafting course and roared with the wind. The flood plains in around Foxboro, just north of the city, began to fill up. Water started creeping eerily towards people’s houses. I walked into the newsroom one Monday morning in April and was assigned immediately to head to the Ashley Street and Harmony Road area in Foxboro, where the floods, I was told, were causing serious damage. I rushed out expecting to see heartbreak and devastation. I ended up seeing people, well, smiling, and having a good time. I’m not trying to trivialize the situation. Some people may have lost property or saw their basements ruined during the event, which couldn’t have been fun. But these floods may have, in the end, caused more good than harm. I saw neighbours helping neighbours by lining sandbags along the homes, with the help of firefighters and friends. I looked hard for the story that would really hit home; the story on the homeowners who lost everything. In the end, the most emotional people I could find were the mother and son who were just tickled pink that a TV guy from Toronto interviewed them for Global News. I learned that of all the natural disasters one can be exposed to, a flood – at least a flood of this proportion – is probably one of the more gentle kinds. Sure, it was a little scary but it was better than a hurricane, a major earthquake or a volcano spilling lava. In time the water receded and the stories about the logistics of sandbag deliveries turned to stories focussing on the heroes; the firefighters who rushed to the scenes to help out and the tireless volunteers. Life returned to normal in the area north of Belleville and I suspect it has pretty much stayed that way since. But with another late spring upon us, and a healthy supply of midMarch snow, who would bet against another sudden thaw and floods along the Moira, the Trent River or any other local waterway? Get your sandbags ready. It could be the time of your life. Stephen Petrick is a freelance journalist and communications specialist based in Belleville.

She noted her family were refugees in Uganda before they were allowed to come to Canada. â&#x20AC;&#x153;His father saved my life,â&#x20AC;? she said. Jaffer said she often goes back to Uganda to visit, but will never again take for granted the freedom she has here. She has been in Canada for 37 years. She urges young people to get involved in politics and not to take their rights for granted. Jaffer said having more women in politics can make a difference not just on womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s issues but on whole communities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They have a different perspective,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need both men and women to strengthen our country.â&#x20AC;? She said she does not like the Olympics. She has seen how women are abused around the world and wants to change that.

She noted that Canada stopped women coming from overseas as prostitutes but has seen young aboriginal girls doing that job on the streets to entertain men for the Olympics. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have seen ten-, eleven- and twelve-year-olds walking the streets,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It broke my heart.â&#x20AC;? In Calcutta she has seen what Canadians can do to stop sex traffic through the International Justice Missions of Canada. It protects the girl, puts money into the justice system, takes care of the girls for up to six or seven years and helps transform society. Investigators go in and get the girls out. Prosecutors send the criminals to jail. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Imagine if we did this as a government, what a difference it would make,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The world would Belleville Mayor Neil Ellis, a Liberal candidate in the next federal election, enjoys the dinner. begin to get itâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;we cannot treat women Photo: Kate Everson as commodities.â&#x20AC;?

Ross Neilsen performs at Trent Port Theatre in Trenton By Kate Everson

Entertainment â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Quinte West â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Trent Port Theatre had a fantastic performance on Monday night from blues rock musician Ross Neilsen from the east coast. Neilsen has performed over 1,000 shows and has travelled more than half a million kilometers, from coast to coast, over the past six years.

Opening the show was local musician Jordan Thomas. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a local favourite,â&#x20AC;? said Pat Clark, who organized the event. Neilsen was nominated for Best New Artist at The Maple Blues Awards in 2010 and earned two Rising Star nominations from CBC. He also earned back-to-back Blues Album of the Year

nominations from the East Coast Music Association. His album, Redemption, won Best Blues Recording at the 2013 MusicNB awards. He was also a semi finalist in the solo/duo category at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis in 2012. More recently he received five nominations from Music

New Brunswick, including Album of the Year, best group and best rock recording for Resurrection as well as Best Male Solo recording for The Shack Up Sessions and a win for best blues recording. After the demise of The Sufferinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Bastards in December 2011, Ross

Neilsen spent much of last year rebuilding his musical foundation with a new trio, the Ross Neilsen Band. The old school, in-your-face guitar playing, coupled with a thunderous, tight rhythm, has been Neilsenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trademark for years. He blurs the lines between pop, blues and rock.

We also have Aqua Yoga which is very relaxing.” Youth Aquatics includes Aqua Sports designed for children to learn new skills for sports like water polo, underwater hockey, speed swimming and lifeguard sport. Participants must be seven to 12 and able to swim 100 metres and tread water for one minute. A Babysitting Course on March 7 is available for ages 11 up designed to help youth be confident caring for children and what to do in emergency situations. Birthday Parties can also be booked at the YMCA, with or without a prepared lunch. Parties include party room, gym and pool activities. Martha is also very excited about the Youth Leader Corps program. It provides youth the opportunity to get involved in the YMCA and their community through various projects, learn leadership skills and service. The program is held Tuesdays from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. open to ages 11 to 15. “These are the inbetween ages,” Martha says. “They learn to become more independent and take on leadership roles in the community. They learn the values of the Y.” Martha said she started out at the Y at the age of 16 and is now a leader in training co-ordinator. She says what young people learn through these programs is invaluable. In the pool or on land they shadow the instructors and get trained in First Aid and endurance. They help in gymnastics, drama, sports, cooking, Kitchen for Kids, and even junior engineering (building bridges and boats). “I started here five years ago, when the Y opened up,” she said. “It’s a nice job. It’s a great community, a real family atmosphere. I love working with kids and youth. It’s a great experience.” She said we have to have faith in our youth and they will rise to the occasion.

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Stirling â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A local food producer is getting back to business after a late night fire halted production at the facility at the west end of the village nearly three weeks ago. BioEssential Botanicals owner Dennis Barker had nothing but praise for local emergency workers, his own staff, residents, neighbours and officials who, he says, have been universally supportive, helpful and professional through what has been an unsettling time for the flourishing seed germinating company. As a result, he says, what might have been a disaster turned out to be little more than a hiccup. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone here (in Sitrling) has been amazing,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a really good time for us,â&#x20AC;? Barker notes of the producer of Omega Meals and other healthy options, adding consumers around the world are becoming increasingly concerned with food quality. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They want good

food,â&#x20AC;? he says. And in several different forms, from main courses to desserts and snacks, BioEssential Botanicals produces exactly that, he adds. Relieved and pleased that things are up and running so quickly, and a full complement of 16 workers have returned to their jobs, Barker said Monday before leaving on a business trip to California, that the ordeal could have been significantly worse. Away visiting family in Australia at the time of the fire, owners Dennis and Gail Barker were contacted while crews were still on the scene, he says, and with the situation in capable hands they opted not to change their plans, returning home on schedule. The decision was also made, he adds, to continue to pay employees throughout the shutdown. Business has been booming for the organic food company, Barker says, resulting in a pair of expansions in recent years and plans for continued future growth.

Man charged following crash

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Stirling â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A 26-year-old Spring Brook man has been charged under the Highway Traffic Act following a singlevehicle collision last week. Stirling-Rawdon Police report that on February 27 at 10:35 p.m. they investigated a crash on Hoards Road at Lake Road where the driver attempted

to pull onto the shoulder of the road and lost control of the vehicle, striking three road signs. There were no injuries. If you have any information regarding this, or any other incident, please call the Stirling-Rawdon Police Service at (613) 395-0844 or Crime Stoppers at (613) 969-TIPS.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The support weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had in Stirling has been incredible,â&#x20AC;? he says, adding their choice to operate in a small community instead of a larger centre has proved invaluable. Fire Chief Rick Caddick, who was also out of town at the time of the

fire, says officials from the Office of the Fire Marshal and Emergency Management (OFMEM) completed an on-site investigation immediately after the fire but further studies are being conducted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Crews quickly contained the fire damage to the east wing of

the building,â&#x20AC;? Caddick says, but, â&#x20AC;&#x153;due to the large amount of inventory and commercial equipment on site, the OFMEM was contacted to investigate.â&#x20AC;? Caddick says the fire is not suspicious in nature but remains under investigation.

Kinsmen Fishing Show a big hit in Batawa Continued from page 3

There were all ages attending the show and even the children were entertained. Peyton Helm, 16 months, rode up high on daddy Jakeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s arm while he balanced an extra large coffee in the other. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re goinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; fishinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;,â&#x20AC;? he said with a grin. The Kids Corner with Susan Eastbury of the Picton Kinettes had painting and colouring for the kids. Her husband is a Trenton Kinsman. Cameron, six, and Jordyn, seven, Newbery, were ecstatic at finding all the flashy fishing lures in the show. Bonnie had to make sure they only got a few to bring home. Steven Tedford from north of

Brighton was a first-time vendor at the Kinsmen show. He said he had a call from a friend letting him know about it. He makes handmade fishing and hunting knives of African ebony or South American Cocobolo Rosewood. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a bladesman,â&#x20AC;? he explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m here to show off.â&#x20AC;? Tedford has been making the knives for 20 years, the last ten years fulltime. It takes him four to 12 hours to craft one knife. Larry Cyr of Crazy Creek Fishing Preserve had a stuffed trout to show off along with information on how to catch a live one at his trout farm on Glen Ross Road. He said students come out to help on the property, and all ages enjoy the fishing including

some from the retirement homes. He said there is no guarantee youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll catch a trout â&#x20AC;&#x153;but thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a real good chance.â&#x20AC;? The Trenton Kinsmen Club members were also selling raffle tickets for a barbecue which includes a setup for ten people at your place. They provide the food but you have to provide the beverages. The $2 tickets will also be on sale at the Kiwanis fishing tournament on May 3 and the draw is on Canada Day. Kiwanian Ryan Gibbs was there with information on the Kiwanis Walleye World coming up soon. He was selling tickets and proudly wearing the 2014 fishing hats already in stock. Spring is coming!

Art classes with Attiyah Whyte, dance classes with Cassandra Bald and Art or Dance with Christy Wryghte are part of the camp too. “Christy is a science teacher,” explains Jason. “She calls it art with spaghetti bridges but it’s more like engineering a bridge out of spaghetti.

Devin began playing drums ten years ago and has expanded his skills to include many instruments including guitar and ukelele. He learned drums from his drum teacher Gary Buffet and then through Trenton High School. He got a job at 16 teaching drums and guitar at Riverside Music where he works Monday to Friday, 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. At 22, music is his life. Devin picks up the ukelele to demonstrate how easy it is to learn for beginners. “Put your index finger on the first string,” he says. “That’s G.” It’s simple, he explains. The ukelele has four strings, not six like a guitar, and they are nylon, not steel so they don’t hurt your fingers as much. Kids can start learning at the age of six or seven. The ukelele is cheap, portable and totally suitable for accompanying music like “silly songs.” “Singing silly songs is part of our March Break day camp,” notes Riverside Music owner Jason Wryghte. “You can sing and dance and have a blast.” He adds that he used to have “silly songs” at the end of each day when he taught school. After cleaning up, the kids relaxed and sang songs like “Ol Hiram’s Goat” or “I like to eat apples and bananas.” “It’s fun to sing,” he says. “I’m totally in my comfort zone.” As for the drama classes, Jason says Devin Bruinix teaches beginner ukelele at it depends who is there. The acting will be age specific and according to the Riverside Music. Photo: Kate Everson News - Trenton - If you like silly songs and building spaghetti bridges, Riverside Music is the day camp for you this March Break. “You can also learn to play the ukelele,” says Devin Bruinix who is one of the instructors.

Seeds of Diversity helps threatened species survive By Kate Everson

News - Quinte West - Judy Newman, guest speaker at the Seedy Saturday at Murray Centennial School on March 1, has a vital message. “We need to protect food diversity,” she said. Food diversity is under threat, but groups of avid gardeners and farmers across the country are taking the threat seriously. “Diversity makes living things adaptable,” Newman said. “It allows species to withstand threats like disease.” She said the Irish potato famine is a prime example. They grew only one type of potato and when the disease spread it took out the whole species on the island causing widespread famine and death. Seeds of Diversity Canada is encouraging organic seed production. It is a national charitable organization dedicated to conservation, education and use of Canada’s food diversity,

natives in the 1800s and was almost extinct. Fortunately, it was saved and is now available. “One of our members got it,” Newman said. “She grew it and found it was excellent, really good for drought conditions and produced mass quantities. Now it is registered with the government.” Newman added there are some “sad stories” about plant species that have disappeared. She encourages people to sign up as members for $25 a year for online seed directories or $40 for printed versions of the Seeds of Diversity magazine printed four times a year. People can find seeds they like to buy and contact the person in the directory. Newman notes there are demonstration gardens made from heritage seeds at Everdale in Hillsborough, Ontario. The seed programs at <www.everdale. org> include on-farm research of grains and vegetables, seed workshops and webinars, as well as seed internships. Aabir Dey is the regional program coordinator for the Bauta Family Initiative on Canadian Seed Security for Ontario and can be reached at <aabir.dey@ everdale.org> for information. Dey was also at the Seedy Saturday event talking to people about the work they do, including <www.seedmap.org> where people can visit hundreds of places around the world where agricultural biodiversity originated, is threatened, and where people are working to safeguard it. “We provide support for the farmers,” Dey said. Judy Newman talks about the Seeds of Diversity. Newman noted Seeds of Diversity Photo: Kate Everson helps organize 110 Seedy Saturdays in partnership with community groups, farm and garden associations. “It has been going for 30 years,” Newman said. “We have volunteers across the country.” She said it all started with Heather Apple who was an avid gardener. There were not a lot of seed companies then, but there are over 100 now. A book, How to Save Your Own Seeds, is now in its sixth edition. The book available online at <www.seeds.ca> offers cutting edge research and techniques including detailed step-by-step instructions for seed storing and saving. “It has clear explanations of botany concepts,” she adds. Newman said one success story is found in the rescue of the Arikara bean. It was grown in Saskatchewan by the

a year across the country supporting new organic seed producers and spreading the information. She said the Eastern Canada Organic Seed Network works with nurseries to establish heritage gardens, such as the one in Kingston with plants from the time of John A. Macdonald. Newman also mentioned Pollination Canada projects, which identifies pollinators in the garden. Some success stories include Heirloom Melons, the Montreal Melon now saved and the Clemenhaga Tomato. A “big buzz” has also been about saving wheat such as the Marquis and Red Fife to protect Canada’s heritage. Newman said three quarters of seed diversity had died out in the 20th century. Seed companies were only selling ten per cent of the remaining varieties. Today the seed library fills the gap. She personally goes through the seed catalogues with over 4,800 varieties and finds out what is truly rare. “We find a little orphan and preserve it,” she said. People are encouraged to donate to the organization and adopt a variety of seed for $250. That $50 puts the variety into the seed catalogue and $200 is invested in researching more dying species. The organization also put out a book How to Save Your Own Seeds now in its sixth edition with the best new cutting edge techniques. Every Seed Tells a Tale is another book about real seed heritage stories compiled from members. All these are available at www.seeds.ca.

Seedy Saturday holds seed exchange for first time in Quinte region By Kate Everson

News - Quinte West - Things were looking pretty seedy at Murray Centennial on Saturday. It was the first Seedy Saturday event, put on by Seeds of Diversity Canada. “The heart of the Seedy Saturday Quinte is our seed exchange table,” said chair Colleen O’Reilly. “This event encourages the exchange of locally grown and collected, open-pollinated seeds.” The inaugural event was very well attended, with people stopping by the various booths and attending workshops on Seeds of Diversity by Judy Newman

and Native and Rare Plants by Peter Fuller. “We’re doing well,” O’Reilly said with a smile. “We will have another one next spring. People are getting excited about gardening this time of year.” Seedy Saturdays are held across the country put on by volunteers. The one held the previous week in Picton was the seed for this one in Quinte West, organized by a committee including Colleen O’Reilly, Pauline McKenzie, Sheila Stenn and Amanda Hill, all from Prince Edward County. “We have lots of support,” O’Reilly said.

The tables had a variety of items on display or for sale. Tamara Segal, a registered herbalist from Picton, showed how to sprout seeds. She is also promoting her herb walks and offered wildflower seeds and eco-friendly products. She can be found in Picton at 613-476-1830 where she sets up local walks in the county or hands-on workshops. “I’ve been involved in herbs for ten years,” she said, “but now I am certified. That helps a lot.” Laura Watt from Consecon brought her daughter Rebecca to help sell her rare, heirloom and organic seeds from Cubits. Jenna Empey from Pyramid Farms in Northport offered “gut-shots” from fermented plants to help the tummy digest things better. Railway Creek Farms of Madoc grew lots of fresh, organic garlic. Lori Aselstine from Thyme Again gardens on Smokes Point Road in Carrying Place offered organic plants along

with organic meat. Tansy Lane Gardens in Milford with Bob Green and Rose Schmid have 56 acres near Pointe Petre. “It’s been too cold on the herbs this winter,” Rose said. “We had to buy herbs this year. Not enough light.” Laura McRae and Derek Paauw from Granite Forest Farm in L’Amable offered honey, beeswax candles, maple and birch syrup as well as their own homemade organic products. “Birch takes longer to tap than maple,” Laura said. “It takes 80 litres of birch sap to make one litre of syrup, compared to 40 for maple.” She said they have their own aviary and make a lot of bee products. “The bees keep us busy,” she said. Erika Wolff from Milford, a certified health educator, offered workshops on juice fasting and raw, living foods lifestyles.

Road costs hurting rural Hastings County

By Jack Evans

News – Urban-based politicians and senior administrators have no conception of the reality of maintaining adequate roads in rural areas. That’s the consensus of Hastings County Council members as they debated the problem at length last Thursday. In vain, so far, Hastings County and Eastern

Ontario politicians have tried to point out to provincial and federal governments that the cost of building or maintaining a kilometre of road in an urban area is shared by an average of 25 property owners, while in rural Ontario the average is only five. Yet the costs are the same and the tax base, often lacking significant commercial or industrial

assessment, is much lower. Several members of council affirmed their municipalities are being driven to bankruptcy. One member, Limerick Reeve Dave Golem, compared the situation to a person diagnosed with an incurable case of cancer. “I agree the situation is critical, but it is not fatal,” said Warden Rick Phillips. He and others said they are hoping for some serious help and relief in the coming Ontario budget which was indicated at the recent Ontario Good Roads convention. They are also awaiting further news on infrastructure help from the federal govern-

News – It is not unusual for any one political party to take a stand which is either right or wrong to some people. But Hastings County council, and many others, are wondering where the common sense is in a bill that is blatantly dangerous to all publicly funded projects and purchasers.

County CAO Jim Pine outlined the situation with Bill 69, called the Prompt Payment Act, presented as a private members bill and which has already been passed a first and second time by all three Ontario parties. He urged council to support a resolution from the Ontario Public Buyers Association, which is sharply

Hastings County alone should be spending $80 million a year on roads, said CAO Jim Pine, but it is only spending $12 million and even that is difficult. There was also some debate about the wisdom of county council’s decision some years ago to disband its own roads department while most other counties kept theirs. There was no move to rescind that decision. Sharing of central costs was also discussed at some length with instructions to staff to investigate specifically liability insurance and policing costs on a shared contract.

ment. Members also agreed that their best bet was to act through the Eastern Ontario Warden’s Caucus, on which Hastings County has long played a key role, and through the Association of Municipalities of Ontario to present a strong front for a common problem. Council also saw a presentation put together by the Warden’s Caucus outlining how Eastern Ontario particularly bears the brunt of aging roads, lower incomes and lower tax base. That plan calls for a fixed, long-range and adequate amount of infrastructure financing.

critical of a bill that could negatively impact municipalities, hospitals, school boards and even the province itself. None of them were consulted during the process and they are now raising a red flag. The bill would seriously limit the rights of councils and public bodies to demand adequate hold backs to ensure works or goods are up to required standards or to delay payments in cases where work is not satisfactory. The bill would require prompt payment within a few days and if there are any problems, the customer would have to result to litigation. “The only people who might benefit from this besides the contractors are lawyers,” suggested Pine. The resolution being supported by Hastings County and many others calls for the government to suspend passing the bill in its present form until adequate amendments are made. Meanwhile, Hastings and other counties continue to pressure the Ontario Government to pass Bill 34 quickly which will help provide up to $10 million in unpaid fines for provincial offences to municipalities. There are fears the bill might die on the order paper if an election is called.

LIFESTYLES

The Good Earth:

ers; this extra snow wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make that much of a difference other than to heighten our appreciation when we do see the ďŹ rst patches of bare soil emerging into the sunlight. For those who start their seeds indoors, especially the cool loving plants such as lettuce, kale, beets and so on, you should be set up and ready to go. These plants can be sown indoors between four to six weeks before last frost. Some of them, e.g. lettuce and snow peas, can be sown directly outdoors as soon as a bit of workable soil is available even if it is only a few square feet. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to take a moment to apologize to all of the folks who have received an e-mail invitation to join a labour-based social media group. It certainly was not my intent for the bots in this program to glom onto every email address in my computer. For the inconvenience this has caused you, I am sorry. For the gra-

cious manner in which the refusals are written, thank you. Be of good cheer, GR, spring is coming. Keep yourself busy doing the stuff you wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to do in April. Make sure all of your tools are up to snuff. Make sure you have a plan of action with all the resources squared away. Now is the time to prune out damaged limbs while the piles of snow raise you up a bit higher. Now is the perfect time to head off to the library or bookstore and get inspired. Learn something new and plan to give it a go this year. You can also buy snowshoes at a discount and get into shape before gardening starts up. You should have about a month of good shoeing. Flippancy aside, this is a perfect time for attending to your physical abilities. Stretching is more important than strength building but donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t neglect that aspect of exercise either.

A melancholy goodbye

Reality Check: Lifestyles - The only constant in life is change. Some seasons of life, though, rush changes through even more than others, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m in the midst of one of those seasons. One daughter has left home; one is learning to drive. I have two book contracts due this year. And perimenopause is causing my hemoglobin levels to plummet faster than Rob Fordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reputation. Call me unimpressed. When I started writing this column my children were ďŹ ve and seven. We were just beginning our homeschooling journey. Today instead of my days being consumed with teaching math and reading great books out loud, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m writing blog posts and planning speaking tours and trying to ďŹ nd time to write more books. And so it is that after eleven and a half years, and six hundred columns, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve decided to concentrate on other things. My blog is taking so much of my attention that I ďŹ nd deadlines a little more intimidating than I did when the biggest thing

somewhere between .070-.150 inches per day per degree Fahrenheit. (3.8mm per day at 1degC) Since my snow piles are some eleventy-eleven feet high I reckon it will take about 641 days, give or take a few hours, before I need to sharpen the blades on my lawnmower. Admittedly thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the doom and gloom version of what would happen if March temps never went above one degree celsius. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the good news: nice warm days of fourty-one degrees farenheit will have snow melting away at 6â&#x20AC;? per day. For you Trenton folks, I do have a stop-gap solution. Our friend, Scott Saylor, has several signs in front of his home. They say, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wanted and Free Snow.â&#x20AC;? Please, GR, when you bring your gifts to his home donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t leave them in the driveway and block his vehicle, the front lawn will be ďŹ ne. Oddly enough, for us home garden-

on my plate was ďŹ nishing a Science lesson with my daughters. I type this with a heavy heart, because I have so enjoyed having this outlet for my thoughts. Whenever I felt ticked about something, I would always think, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I can write a column about that!â&#x20AC;? And Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d start planning it--while driving, while in the shower, while making dinner. It was wonderful to know that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be able to put my thoughts down on paper. Being a local columnist was such a treat, too. I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go to the grocery store, or take my kids to swimming, or walk into church without someone mentioning last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s column. People read what I wrote, and for that I am very humbled and very grateful. I still have issues which I wish I could have explored more, or at least lended a little more eloquence. I am dreadfully worried about the institution of marriage, because I do think that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the bedrock of healthy children, healthy families, and a healthy society.

I am constantly frustrated by our entitlement culture, and by the way the government bends over backwards for those who have messed up, while leaving those who have done nothing wrong ďŹ&#x201A;ailing. And I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think of a better example of governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s failing than with the foster care system. We give biological parents chance after chance, letting them collect welfare money, methadone treatments, and many other government programs, while their kids languish in care. Too few are adopted out, because parents are given â&#x20AC;&#x153;second chancesâ&#x20AC;?. And by the time the kids are taken away for good, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re so scarred that adopting them is difďŹ cult. Why do parents get second chances while kids donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even get ďŹ rst chances? We will never have a healthy society until people bear the consequences of their actions. We are fostering too much irresponsibility, and not enough maturity and independence. And it scares me. And so there is still much to say, and

much work to do. I will just be doing it a different way. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m in the middle of writing a book for Simon & Schuster called 11 Thoughts That Will Change Your Marriage. My blog, To Love, Honor and Vacuum (tolovehonorandvacuum.com), had 600,000 visits last month, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s growing all the time. I share my parenting and marriage thoughts there, and I do hope you will join me. Most of all, though, I hope that over the last eleven and a half years I have written something that has made you love your family more, smile at strangers more, or consider faith again. If I have done that, then I will be happy indeed. Please stay in touch with Sheila! You can read her blog, or subscribe to it by email, at http://tolovehonorandvacuum.com.

(who made the pumpkin mufďŹ ns?) and a proper reason for meeting. I hope we see more of this crew and I certainly encourage all Gentle Readers to seek out this type of event. How long before the snow melts? I did some net research on this to see if anyone had a good handle on it. For sure, the snow hydrologists (I looked it up; Gentle Reader, that is the proper name for this discipline) have been at it for a very long time, even before Clarence Birdseye brought winter inside. Some of the discussions between various schools of thought are quite heated, which should help us here and seem to be split between global warming as either man-caused or natural climate swings. I digress, perhaps a function of snow-bound cabin fever? I did come across a guideline for determining how long it will take for a snowpack to melt. The ďŹ gures read

Integrity report resolution delayed until April By Ray Yurkowski

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Brighton â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Anyone hoping for a decision regarding the latest report delivered by Integrity Commissioner Nigel Bellchamber will have to wait until the April 7 municipal council meeting. In a recorded vote, at their regular meeting on Monday night, council approved creating a subcommittee (Deputy Mayor Mike Vandertoorn and Councillor Emily Rowley) â&#x20AC;&#x153;to provide recommendations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is consistent with what the commissioner suggested,â&#x20AC;? said Vandertoorn. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The last part of the report did advise deferring any action until our next regular meeting and consider establishing a subcommittee of no more than two members and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m willing to take on that role.â&#x20AC;? The move was approved by Vandertoorn and Rowley along with Councillors Craig Kerr, John Martinello and Tom Rittwage while Councillor Mary Tadman was opposed. Mayor Mark Walas declared a conflict and excused himself from the discussion. In his report, Bellchamber points out â&#x20AC;&#x153;council has limited options in response to a finding of a breach of its Code of Conduct.â&#x20AC;? According to the provincial Municipal Act, the maximum penalty for a member of council who has contravened the Code is a reprimand or the loss of up to 90 days pay. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t agree with the report so why would I support anything to do with it?â&#x20AC;? said Tadman, after the meeting, when asked why she voted against creating

the subcommittee. Most of the fireworks on the topic happened in question period when resident Mike Martell wondered if Tadman â&#x20AC;&#x153;had an opportunity to speak to the commissioner.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I read the report,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Then I hear the councillor didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the opportunity or wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t asked to speak to him. That tells me there is some question on the validity of the report.â&#x20AC;? The investigation was requested by resolution, moved and supported by Tadman, at a special council meeting on February 1, 2013. The investigation was delayed until June 2013 to allow time for a formal employment contract to be negotiated between the municipality and Frost. Interviews were scheduled in July and Bellchamber contends replies were received from everyone but Tadman. A series of emails obtained by the Independent indicates Tadman had plenty of opportunity to meet with the commissioner. Every council member as well as Chief Administrative Officer Gayle Frost and Deputy Clerk Vicki Kimmett were copied on the exchange. It started on December 23, when Kimmett polled council members in an effort to set a date in January for the delivery of the report. On December 31, Tadman wrote back, wondering why she didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a chance to speak to Bellchamber. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As an elected member of council, is this an oversight?â&#x20AC;? she wrote. He answered Tadman the same day

saying, â&#x20AC;&#x153;You may recall, I did offer to meet with you this past summer and was informed you were unavailable on the date I proposed. In seeking an alternate date or dates, after you referred me to your solicitor, I was offered one from your solicitorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office in February 2014, presumably with your concurrence. I took this to mean that you were not interested in meeting with me regarding the complaint.â&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I made myself available to you November 4, 2013,â&#x20AC;? replied Tadman. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You chose not to meet with me.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;A few additions and facts are in order,â&#x20AC;? answered Bellchamber. â&#x20AC;&#x153;On November 4, 2013 I attended at a scheduled meeting in Belleville with another member of Brighton Council and his solicitor. The meeting considered a matter other than the February 1, 2013 resolution. I was provided with

no notice to indicate that you would be there and possibly available to meet with me and was quite surprised to see you in the parking lot and in the firmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s waiting room when I exited. I actually assumed you were there on another matter when I first saw you. I also note that this was not the law office of the individual who appears to be your solicitor. You did not contact me before or after that date.â&#x20AC;?

Bulls crushed by Kingston By Steve Jessel

Sports – Belleville – It was a disappointing weekend of hockey for the Belleville Bulls, and with a pair of lopsided losses to the Kingston Frontenacs the Bulls’ playoff chances are hanging on by a thread. “Everyone is getting an opportunity to play ... we really need to try to lay a foundation as to what our expectations are going to be moving forward for the group that returns,” said assistant coach Jason Supryka. “We certainly haven’t counted ourselves out of it, but it’s going to be very difficult.” With just a handful of games left in the season and the Bulls trailing Niagara and Ottawa by only a few points for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, a home-and-home set with Kingston beginning Friday night took on new importance, but Belleville came up way short against their old rivals. First, on Friday night the Bulls

were embarrassed in a 10-2 loss to the Frontenacs, where they allowed five first-period goals on 18 Kingston shots. Belleville netminder Micheal Giugovaz would be left in for all 10 goals. The lone bright spot for the Bulls was the play of Cameron Brace, who after opening the scoring on an early powerplay, would also score just 15 seconds into the second period, giving him two goals on the night. Belleville would finish with one goal on five powerplay opportunities. The Bulls didn’t have long to lick their wounds before they were back on the ice against the very same Kingston team, one night later at the Yardmen Arena in Belleville. Early-game struggles would again haunt the Bulls and after allowing three goals in the opening stanza Saturday night, Kingston took a 4-0 lead just a minute into the second period on a powerplay goal by Kingston centre Darcy Greenway. Credit

the Bulls however for digging in their heels in front of a crowd of 3,000-plus inside the Yardmen, and second-year forward Micheal Cramarossa was the one to get the Bulls on the board, roofing a shot home from in close to record his seventh goal of the season. The Bulls fans were still cheering Cramarossa’s goal when Kingston struck back just six seconds later. Kingston would win the faceoff and drive directly down the ice, where Kingston’s Sam Bennett restored the four-goal advantage with a quick shot past Belleville goalie Charlie Graham. Heading into the third period Belleville still trailed the Frontenacs 5-1, and although the Bulls’ David Tomasek would make it a bit closer by scoring his 11th of the year a few minutes in, it’s as close as Belleville would come in a 5-2 loss. “We knew coming into tonight’s game, that if we were

Hockey teams battle for Bay of Quinte championships Sports – Belleville – Bay of Quinte high school hockey supremacy was on the line at the Quinte Sports and Wellness Centre last week, where the region’s top school clubs convened for a one-day tournament to determine bragging rights for the 2014 season. It would be an all-Hastings final when the all the chips were down, as the Centre Hastings Secondary School Centurions faced off against the North Hastings High School Huskies in the gold medal match after the two teams beat the Nicholson Catholic College Crusaders and the Centennial Secondary School Chargers in separate semi-final matchups. In the final, Centre Hastings would ride a balanced scoring attack that saw four different players score goals en-route to a 4-2 championship win, led by a goal and an assist by Robbie Ellis. Centre Hastings took the lead on their very first shot of the game, and they had

little reason to look back after that. The Centurion’s Dustin Maunes added to the lead before the frame was up, and Centre Hastings held a commanding 2-0 lead after the opening period. The second period looked to be more of the same after the Centurion’s Brandon Albert scored on a one-timer to make the lead 3-0, but North Hastings finally began to show the ability that led them all the way to the gold medal match. Both teams were laying big hits all over the ice, and that’s when North Hastings Captain Josh Houran took matters into his own hands, driving hard on net and scoring to get the Huskies on the board trailing 3-1. Perhaps drawing some inspiration from his captain, North Hasting’s Jordan Easton would make a drive to the net of his own just 45 seconds later, where he promptly netted home the goal on a slick backhand shot to bring the Huskies back within a goal. Unfortunately for North

COSSA champs crowned

Hastings, that’s as close as they would come, and a third-period goal by the Centurion’s Brock Bronson was enough to carry Centre Hastings to a 4-2 win and the Bay of Quinte championship. Centennial would defeat Nicholson 1-0 in the boy’s consolation final on a goal by Nick Hoey. Girls hockey At the same time as the boys finals, the Bay of Quinte girls hockey championships were taking place next door on Rink A at the Quinte Sports and Wellness Centre, where the St. Theresa Titans put on a commanding performance to claim the championship by a 7-1 final over the East Northumberland Secondary School Dragons. The Titans led just 2 - 1 with time running out in the second period, but exploded for five goals over the following 15 minutes to claim the title. Casey Vinkle led the Titans with two goals and three assists in the game, and Emily Jukosky added a pair of goals of her own in the win.

still in it after the first period then we would be able to sustain a bit of pressure,” Supryka said. “Obviously having the first period here where we’re down by three is really tough.” The loss left the Bulls with just six games left in the regular season - they hosted the Oshawa Generals Wednesday night but the score was unavailable by press time.

Trenton Golden Hawks in tough against Whitby Fury in OJHL playoffs played in front of a boisterous crowd at Duncan McDonald Memorial Gardens on Friday, Feb. 28. Game 4 was played Tuesday at the Gardens, after press time. Heading into Sunday, the Hawks were virtually in a must-win situation, as a loss would have put them in a 3 - 0 series deficit. They started strong with first-period goals by Hunter Fargey and Dylan Savory to take a 2 - 0 lead. Whitby responded with a goal 30 seconds after Savory’s goal, but the Hawks responded with one of their own, by Zach de Concilys 46 seconds later, to take a 3 - 1 lead into the first intermission. Whitby scored three straight goals in the second period to take a 4 - 3 lead but Danny Liscio responded with a goal to tie the score 4 - 4 by the second intermission.

By Harry Kranenburg

Sports - With the Quinte Region still locked in winter’s icy blasts, the only way to beat cabin fever and the associated blues was for curlers to embrace it. And so was born the Monday Day League Blues Spiel. This year, curlers gathered on February 24th to participate in the two six-end games points spiel. Decked out in blue, the curlers made their way to the ice surface, where the temperature was considerably balmier than outdoors. Two of regular player Nancy Archer’s neighbours (Laurie Collings and Judy Van Huizen) had tunneled their way to the road and became Trenton’s newest first-time curlers. After the first game, Ellie Kompch and Ron Livingston led the pack in total points and were paired against each other for the second game. They kept it close until the final end, when Kompch threw her

last stone light (she of course blamed the sweepers) and gave up two points for the loss. The victory was all the more sweet for Livingstone as he had first-time curler Laurie Collins on his team. Why sweeter? An added twist this year was a ballot for anyone not making the hog line and Laurie was among those unfortunate few. Not only did she share in the first place prize table, but her name was also drawn from the hog bucket and she went home with a pound of bacon as well. Both newbies said they thoroughly enjoyed the experience and will become club members next year. There were door prizes galore, and all curlers went home with a prize. Not a bad way to chase those blues away. This weekend is the annual threeday Mixed Skins Spiel with $3000 in prize money up for grabs.

Fray was the Gold medalist in the Octathlon at the 2013 Canadian Legion National Track and Field Championship. To round out his medal collection, Fray ended the meet with a bronze medal performance in the triple jump. Being touted as the gold medal favourite, Fray injured himself during a preliminary round attempt of 13.52 metres and decided to pass for the rest of the competition. QWTC Coach Duncan Armstrong and Fray assessed the situation and agreed that it was wise to stop. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t worth the risk of rolling the dice to get a gold while possibly jeopardizing his season,â&#x20AC;? remarked Armstrong. Fray will be heading to New York City to compete in the New Balance sponsored USA National Junior Championships during the March Break. This will be Frayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second time competing in this highly prestigious meet and was another reason for making the call to sit out the rest of the AO meet. Fray and Armstrong are presently fundraising to help with expenses for the trip.

Fray began the meet with a bronzemedal performance in the junior boys long jump. Despite this being his first set of jumps of the year, Frayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s assessment of his performance of 6.74 metres was good. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t practiced this event very much so far this season so I am pretty happy with the results,â&#x20AC;? said Fray. His personal best is 6.85 metres and he has his sight set on breaking a Bay of Quinte record of 6.77 metres set by former Trenton High School track star Vic Witriac back in 1966. Fray added to his medal count in the high jump with a silver medal personalbest leap of 2.05 metres. QTC Coach, Sue Tripp, who takes Fray to York University every week to train indoors with Olympic class coaches, was ecstatic with the result. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He has been progressing nicely these past few months and to PB so early in the year is a nice incentive that will motivate Leaugen to train harder than he already is,â&#x20AC;? she said.

Artists honoured at Maple Syrup Festival Day (oil on canvas) was awarded to Lenni Workman of Warkworth. Gagnon said he was impressed with the large scale of this painting and the tension between the realism of the large red ďŹ&#x201A;owers and the abstraction of the vase with reďŹ&#x201A;ections. Coordination of the colours and the simpliďŹ ed background enhanced the subject. Best Painting called Running Water, (oil on canvas) was won by Jerry Albert, who has a studio in Baltimore and is a ďŹ rst-time winner. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a great on-site painting, easy technique and not contrived. It is a little bit of tucked-away landscape rendered with feeling,â&#x20AC;? said Gagnon. Best Photograph, called Winter Field

Entertainment â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Warkworth â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Marc L. Gagnon, a water colour and acrylic artist from Newcastle, selected the winners of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 14th Annual Maple Syrup Festival Art and Photography Show and Sale which took place in Warkworth at the Memorial Community Hall last Saturday. There were some ďŹ rst-time winners at this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s juried event. Seventy-nine works of art were submitted from which Gagnon chose to include 45. Earlier in the morning he had given a free demonstration in abstract watercolour painting. The following are the winners: Best in Show called Red on a June

the texture and colouring of the stone was significant,” he noted. Honourable Mention, a painting called Look to the Coast (acrylic), was won by Sue Wilkins of Campellford, also a first-time winner. Gagnon said, “Sue has blended subtle textures and colour shifts to bring out the landscape with interesting land forms.” Honourable Mention in photography went to Sylvie Flynn, of Cobourg, another first-time winner, for her photo called Fallen. “This small photo is precious and subtle ... The photographer has a deep understanding of its strength in spite of its size,” said Gagnon. Honourable Mention for 3D/Mixed Media went to Christopher Thorpe for his work called Harvest Crows

(acrylic and photography). He too is a first-time winner. Gagnon commented, “This is an interesting way of addressing a found image and expanding it by adding painted objects (crows in this case) for more impact. It has a fabulous format and was a wise choice of photo.” The artists’ and photographers’ work, including the winners’ submissions, will be on display in the Memorial Community Hall on Saturday, March 8, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, March 9 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. At that time visitors will have the opportunity to vote for the art/photograph they think should win the People’s Choice Award.

Lifestyles - Nobody wants their dog strangled or their ash trees bored. Who would guess that Barn Swallows are threatened? Or that we might lose the Blanding’s Turtle, whose cute yellow throat used to be seen all over our wetlands. On March 13 in Belleville, Kate Pitt and Alison Kirkpatrick will help you identify invading species, defend against them, and protect native fish, animals and plants. This is the fourth in the Winter Speaker Series for the Hastings Stewardship Council.

Invading species are one of the greatest threats to the biodiversity of our waters and woodlands. Invading species can kill our native species, destroy habitats, and upset ecosystems because, in most cases, they have no natural predators or controls. Alison Kirkpatrick leads the Aquatic Invasive Species Outreach at the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters and manages the monitoring program. She will identify the worst culprits and best management practices for eastern Ontario.

Alison can help volunteers to track invasive species with EDDMaps, the new tracking website and smartphone app, developed in partnership with the Invading Species Centre, University of Georgia and the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources. It will allow users to take a picture of an invasive species, and automatically mark the location and send it for verification. Alison will profile the Emerald Ash Borer, Round Goby, Asian Carp, Garlic Mustard, Dog-strangling Vine, and others, including their impacts and identification. For example, the Round Goby competes with our native fish and has been implicated in outbreaks of botulism type E in Great Lakes fish and fisheating birds, resulting in large dieoffs of fish and birds. Kate Pitt is a Species at Risk Biologist with the Ministry of Natural Resources helping to protect and restore our more than 200 native species that are in trouble. Kate will be talking about specific upland songbirds at risk in Hastings County such as the Bobolink and Eastern Meadowlark, as well as other “backyard” birds and animals that you can help protect. Check out her updates on the Barn Swallow and Blanding’s Turtle. Farmers and landowners in Ontario can both serve and protect. Kate can answer questions about accommodating the needs of our species at risk while carrying out our daily work. The briefing takes place at the Township of Thurlow Community Centre at 516 Harmony Road, north of Belleville (and west off hwy. 37), on Thursday, March 13 at 7 pm. There is no cost, but donations will be gratefully accepted at the door. All are welcome to attend. For further information, please contact Matt Caruana at The Hastings Stewardship Council: 613-391-9034 or email: info@hastingsstewardship.ca When native species are at risk, then people are at risk too.


TRAVEL

Exploring the eye-popping French Riviera Lifestyles - The French Riviera, the Cote d’Azur, is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. Located along France’s beautiful southeastern coastline, where the majestic Alps visibly plunge into the deep blue Mediterranean Sea, it’s regarded as a luxurious, sophisticated, and trendy retreat for the rich and famous.  With its rugged coastline of sheer cliffs and magnificent beaches, the French Riviera is dotted with luxury homes, expensive yachts, and grand hotels. Some of the most popular tourist destinations along the French Riviera include Menton, a city of gardens that’s located in the extreme southeast of France, near the Italian border, with a warm climate that’s favourable to its tangerine, orange, and lemon groves, Antibes, a traditional Mediterranean Sea port city, with a medieval castle and narrow shopping streets, Juan les Pins with its Picasso Museum, housed in the Chateau Grimaldi, Cannes, home of the renowned Cannes Film Festival each May, where the Palme d’Or is awarded, Nice, the beautiful capital city of the French Riviera, where strollers can enjoy a seaside walk along the renowned Promenade des Anglais, the Principality of Monaco site of the palace, casino, and annual Monaco Grand Prix, Biot, renowned for its glass blowing and pottery, Grasse, often referred to as “the world fragrance capital”, St. Tropez, located on one of the most beautiful harbours on the Mediterranean, and Grimaud, a village that features a partially restored 11th century castle and borders the Gulf of St. Tropez. I used Nice, the capital city of the French Riviera, as my base, and I stayed at the Hotel Kyriad Nice Gare, an older hotel that was conveniently located very near to the train station and the city centre.  I found that my room was a good size, with a large bed, and I was pleased that there was free wi-fi included and breakfast, too.  From here I went on a walking tour of the city with Nadja Graf, of Tourism Nice, and she pointed out many of the city’s major points of interest, including the nearby Russian Orthodox Church (completed in 1912), the narrow streets of its Old Town, its Market Square, where the morning market booths were replaced by afternoon dining areas, Castle Hill, which we ascended for a spectacular view of the city and coastline, and its promenade along the city’s large harbour and beach area.  I was surprised to find that there was no sand on this popular beach, for it was entirely stones.  However, Nadja told me that the locals soon became very accustomed to this and many were seen sunning in this stony landscape or even walking barefoot.  I was also surprised that, although I was in a very touristy area, the city’s buses were very cheap (1.5 Euros) and its museums were actually free! As I explored Nice with Nadja, I also learned that this, the largest city on the Riviera, hosts a very famous Jazz Festival annually and a very popular Carnival, too. I also came to the conclusion that visitors who are interested in art will want to check out Nice’s Chagall Museum, Matisse Museum, and Fine Arts Museum.  These same visitors will not want to miss Place Massena, either, a large square that features sev-

en statues of men atop high pedestals. This represents the seven continents of the world, is entitled “Continents in Conversation with Nice”, and is illuminated at night in bright, changing colours. Since I had a rail pass, I found Nice to be a convenient ‘home base’ on the French Riviera, and it was just a short rail ride to other worthwhile destinations, such as Cannes and Monaco.  I found that a lot of trains travelled through Nice on a daily basis, adding to the convenience.  I also discovered that the International Nice-Riviera Airport, located in Nice, makes this particular destination on the French Riviera a very convenient air travel stop, too, for it’s the second largest airport in all of France and a major international hub.  While in this beautiful area, I also travelled westward, along the coastline, to Toulon, near the most southerly point of the French Riviera and here I checked out its pedestrian shopping area, its military port, fortress, and some of its many old fountains. After all, it’s often referred to as the City of Fountains.  I’d also recommend a visit to Saint Maxime, located at the northern end of the Gulf of St. Tropez, a mere 10 minute ferry ride from St. Tropez, and the island of Marguerite where the Man in the Iron Mask was incarcerated, just a The beach at Nice, on the French Riviera. 20-minute boat ride from Cannes.  Also worthwhile would be a visit to Le Trayas, a village from which you’ll view the stunning red rocks of Esterel and nearby is the Comiche de l’Esterel, one of the most beautiful roads and coastline drives found in the south A view of Monaco’s Fortress. of France.

I stayed in Nice’s Hotel Kyriad, conveniently located near the train station.

Art demonstration serves as preview for watercolour workshop Lifestyles – Warkworth – For the fourth year in a row, Spirit of the Hills hosted a free art demonstration in the Warkworth Town Hall Centre for the Arts. Marc L. Gagnon, a full time watercolour and acrylic painter currently residing in Newcastle, presented a two-hour demonstration on abstraction in watercolour. While 15 people watched and listened, he developed a scene from Lake Superior into an inspiring and imaginative work of art. Using wide brushes, pure pigment with little water, he scrubbed his way to creating a rock face. Paper towels, spray bottles, patience and time, all contributed to creating interesting textures, and a dynamic image. After lunch, Gagnon walked to the Memorial Community Hall in the village to judge the submissions for the 14th Annual Maple Syrup Festival Juried Art & Photography Show and Sale. In 2011, Spirit of the Hills received funding from Heritage Canada in conjunction with the 25th anniversary of the Warkworth Maple Syrup Festival. This became the beginning of the free art demonstrations held the weekend prior to the traditional Maple Syrup Festival at Sandy Flat Sugar Bush. Thanks to this initial federal art grant, Spirit of the Hills has continued under its own steam to create interesting Judge Marc Gagnon, from left, talks to photographer Tom Groot about his photo Cat in Provence. art demonstrations during the past three years including Other local photographers Robert Laycock and Mary Weilandt join the event.

Petes help HBPS students shut out bullying By Bill Freeman

News - Havelock - Havelock Belmont Public School students got a big-time assist from the Peterborough Petes in their efforts to raise awareness about bullying and to highlight the importance of being a good citizen. Centre Matt McCartney and defenseman Steven Varga spent part of Pink Day at the school signing autographs and talking about the importance of teamwork and leadership in dealing with bullies. “We’re trying to do a broader piece with this [Pink Day] and putting it together with the Petes is a good way to address teamwork and working together,” principal Darryl Whitney said. In the fall, Whitney said HBPS did a “full session” about anti-bullying and decided to enlarge on that “and make it more about the team and look at character attributes, specifically respect and responsibility.” “We wanted to make it an even bigger day and not just about wearing pink and not just talking about bullying but talking about citizenship. Being a good citizen means being respectful, responsible and being a good person.” “We love it,” McCartney said about visiting elementary schools. “It’s not a big part of our day but I’m sure it’s a big part of the day for them. We like doing it and getting a good message across; it’s perfect. “It’s always good to have good role models to look up to,” the Scarborough native said. “Teamwork is a big part of everything especially with bullying,” he said. “If everyone

stands up and sticks together then no one is going to be singled out; that’s pretty much what teamwork is.” McCartney also said leadership plays a key role in tackling bullying head-on. “If the leader is doing the right thing and leading the right way that takes care of bullying right away.” Lessons from sports definitely carry over into everyday life, McCartney said. “Hockey is a good foundation for making friends.” You can’t be a bystander when it comes to putting the check on bullying, you’ve got to step up and help the victim, he said. “Take your role, be a leader and tell those who are trying to make other people feel bad to think about what you’re doing.” Grade 1 teacher Jenny Pink helped organize events at the school. “We talk about, on a daily basis, the strategies that children and adults can use but at the end of the day it’s really about being a good person and how we can work together as a team. We just want to keep that conversation going and let the kids have some fun. “It’s nice to put some familiar faces to it like hockey players. This is a big hockey community so it’s [good that students] know that they have the some of the same struggles that we have sometimes and we can learn from other people what they do to make good choices.” “This is a time to pause and think about the things we can say and do on a daily basis [to make us better people]. It carries on with lifelong friends, it carries on at home.”

Iron Chef challenge provides high school students with real life experience By Steve Jessel

News – Belleville – The whirring of knives and the quiet hum of a busy kitchen were the focus of the annual Loyalist Iron Chef contest this past week, where high school students from PECI, Peterborough and Kingston faced off in a battle royale to determine the region’s top student chefs. “The goal of the event is to keep inspiration with high school students and promote the culinary program at this school as well as others, we just want to keep this industry alive as much as possible,” said Loyalist second-year culinary student Brennan Roy,

who helped organize the competition with other culinary students. “It’s to give them that rush, that excitement of getting something done in a time limit, and challenging yourself as much as possible.” Student teams were tasked to create a threecourse menu using a set list of ingredients, and were then judged on their taste and presentation of their food along with their professionalism in the kitchen. “Teamwork is huge in the kitchen and the food industry,” Brennan said when asked what a common mistake students might make is in the kitchen. “You defi-

nitely need to keep in contact with all your team members and know what they’re doing, and they need to know what you’re doing. Communication is key.” For Grade 11 PECI student Jared Hartley, the competition was his second kick at the can after also competing in 2013. He said managing stress levels was key to succeeding in the competition. “In the big scheme of things, how is it going to work out? If you need to redo something, can it be done in time?” Hartley said. “It’s about getting that experience.” Experience is something that St. Peter’s chef Cathy Rose said students get in spades during the competition. Rose was particularly praising of the opportunity for students to get professional feedback on their dishes during preliminary rounds earlier in the year, and said that Loyalist’s competition is the only one that she knows of that gives students that opportunity. “The one thing that this competition does is it builds self esteem like no other competition,” she said. “They can go away knowing they put out plates that were high calibre, restaurant worthy food.” When the smoke had cleared, it was Rose’s St. Peter’s team that took home top honours, followed by PECI

in second. The St. Peter’s menu included a mushroom ragout in a paprika rubbed pancetta ring finished with squash frites and leek oil, a paprika rubbed pork tenderloin served with herb whipped potatoes, organic

heirloom carrots, maple fig sauce and a rich pan jus, and for dessert, flour-less paprika infused dark chocolate cake with an orange mascarpone cream. Members of the winning team were each awarded

a $500 Loyalist bursary applicable to any Loyalist program, as well as gift certificates to be used toward kitchen equipment and supplies for their school.

Quinte West Home and Leisure show set for weekend of April 25-27 Events – Trenton – The 33rd Annual Quinte West Home and Leisure Show will take place April 25-27 at the Community Gardens in Trenton, hosted by the Quinte West Chamber of Commerce and the Trenton Kiwanis Club. As we look forward to the signs of spring, it’s a great time to be planning new projects around your home and garden. “This show provides wonderful inspiration as it allows visitors to see the latest trends in home updates, and learn about lifestyle enhancements from a wide range of vendors,” says event coordinator Jillian McCormick
 The show has become a regional favourite offering great value to vendors and visitors.  The cost of admission is $3 per person

and children of any age are free. One special attendee will start their spring renovations off right with a chance to win $1,000 Home Show Bucks when they visit the show. Home Show Bucks work like cash and can be spent at any vendor in the show. Two arenas will be full of products and services for your home renovation projects and leisure activities plus upstairs is the Quinte Women’s Show.  Each year the Quinte West Home and Leisure Show has over 100 vendors showcasing their products or services and attracts nearly 3,000 visitors to the Trenton arena. “There is a great variety in this years’ show covering everything from gardens and landscape design, roofing, general contrac-

tors, pools and hot tubs, custom windows, and much more,” says Chamber Manager Suzanne Andrews. “Sometimes it is hard to know who you are getting into business with, this show provides a great opportunity for the public to meet face to face with local businesses and industry professionals, talk to them about ideas, ask questions, and evaluate companies without commitment or having to set up appointments at your home.”   The show hours are Friday, April 25 from 5 to 9 p.m., Saturday, April 26 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, April 26 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Vendor spaces are still available. Further details on the show can be found at www.quintewesthomeshow.com.

Trent Hills resident saw Sochi Olympics from behind the camera lens By John Campbell

Hastings – You can thank Brian Tyson for some of the great television moments you saw during the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics. Not as an athlete but as a cameraman. The Hastings-area resident was a member of the camera crews hired by Olympic Broadcast Services to produce world feeds of the opening and closing ceremonies, as well as the medal ceremonies that took place daily. The opening ceremonies were “pretty impressive” and the artistic pieces that included some “amazing projections” onto the floor of the arena were “spectacular,” Tyson said. “It was a very enjoyable experience,” he said, but for a cameraman, also “very challenging.” He arrived in Russia six weeks before the Games began Feb. 7 because they needed people there in advance “to start blocking all the camera positions” for the opening ceremonies which were “extremely complex.” Based on what he and the camera crew saw in rehearsals –“sometimes things worked, sometimes they didn’t” – they were left crossing their fingers that “it was going to work,” Tyson said. In the end it “was pretty well

flawless,” apart from “the big thing everybody remembers,” one of the gigantic Olympic rings not opening as planned – a malfunction “not much different” from what happened during the official opening of the Winter Olympics in Vancouver in 2010, he said. It marked the second time Tyson has worked the Olympics; his first was Calgary in 1988 for CTV. Born in Coventry, England, Tyson emigrated to Canada in 1968 and worked as a salesman for a pharmaceutical manufacturer before deciding to try making a living out of his hobby and becoming a still photographer. He studied photographic arts at Ryerson University in the early 1970s but then took “a slight detour” in his career path and spent the next 35 years working as a freelance cameraman in motion pictures, film and television production. Tyson has shot thousands of TV shows – drama, variety, sports, talk, game, reality and awards – for seemingly every Canadian and American network, as well as commercials, documentaries, educational films and corporate videos. His resume includes So You Think Can Dance, Open Mike with Mike Bullard (for six years),

the Winnipeg Comedy Festival, Just for Laughs, and, currently, the Ron James Show. He does not have any favourites. “I’ve always enjoyed whatever show I was doing,” Tyson said. “I can’t remember too many times when I’ve got up in the morning and said I don’t want to go to work today.” Getting into the business was “not a tough go” but he wouldn’t want to be starting out now. There’s more competition and “the whole business has changed” because the networks “don’t want to train anybody,” preferring to hire freelancers such as himself “who already know how to do the work.” Now approaching 70, the “semi-retired” Tyson and his wife, Barbara Klatt, own and operate a market garden farm east of Hastings, growing organic fruits and vegetables. He’s pursuing still photography “more seriously” these days, as a member of Spirit of the Hills and as a blogger (http://cameraf11.com). The website is his “business card” that lets people know what kind of photography he does. His favourite images are in black and white, which he finds “more aesthetically pleasing.”

Brian Tyson can now say he’s been to Russia but he really didn’t get to see much of the country, despite being there for more than two months. He was too busy working as a cameraman at the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics, shooting the opening and closing ceremonies as well as the daily medal ceremonies. Photo: Submitted. Right: The Olympic Cauldron featured a light show in shades of five colours, Russian classical music, and a fountain that shot water 60 metres into the air. Photo: Brian Tyson
