care buildings and Northumberland Quinte West needs to reflect the demographics of an aging population. Morris Gates asked how they will eliminate the debt. Rob said it is not honest to the people of Ontario to hire 400,000 bureaucrats like they did in Ontario Power Authority which grew from 17 people to 2,300 with the CEO making $400,000 a year. They also need to get rid of the Green Energy Act which costs $1 billion a year. Bob Dawes of Trenton said Hydro billing is a mess. Rob said that is the number one issue with calls into the office about inaccurate billing. “It’s asinine,” he said. “They can’t even get it right. It is a bloated bureaucracy with no leadership.” He said smart metres cost $1 billion and

News - Quinte West - Local resident Randy Henning is concerned about the crude oil pipeline known as Line 9 that transects Quinte West. He spoke to council Monday, asking for some action. “The line crosses one kilometre north of Glen Miller,” he said. “It also crosses under Highway 33.” He said the pipeline was built in 1976 and consists of two lines, 9A from Sarnia to Toronto and 9B from Toronto to Montreal. “They plan to pump the tar sands from Alberta through eastern Canada and New England,” he said. Henning said they originally thought the pipeline would last 100 years. But 38 years later, people are asking if it is safe. “The coating is frail,“ he said. “It is made of carbon steel from ten millimetres to one centimetre thick, with a plastic liner or asphalt.” He said an article in the Toronto Star said the aging Enbridge pipeline stretching 830 kilometres Line 9 across Ontario has had at least 35 spills since it was built. “Municipalities were never informed,” he said. The pipeline was built in 1976 to bring oil to refineries and was reversed in the mid-1980s to transport Middle East oil. In 2012 it was approved to increase capacity from 240,000 barrels a day to 300,000. “Fort McMurray is a site of desolation,” he said. “The bitumin is a tarry, gooey, substance, full of carcinogens. Add water and it is a disaster.” He said in 2010 there was a crack in the Enbridge line that spread three

Chamber of Commerce hosts all-candidates night at St. Paul By Kate Everson

News - Trenton - Derrick Morgan, past president of the Chamber of Commerce, introduced the four candidates for the provincial election for this riding at St. Paul Secondary School on May 26. On stage were Kira Mees for NDP, Gudrun LudorfWeaver for the Green party, Rob Milligan for PC and Lou Rinaldi for Liberals. After a brief introduction of their party platforms, each candidate was asked questions from the crowd. First was about how their party would eliminate the deficit. Rob Milligan said the Liberals are on the wrong path with a $13-billion deficit, which now costs $33,000 a minute in interest on the debt. Gudrun LudorfWeaver said they need to focus on small

business in Ontario to drive the economy. Kira Mees said there is waste and scandal in the current government and they need to cap CEO salaries and lower the small business tax. Lou Rinaldi said the May 1 budget has been presented and is on target with no slash and burn. Sally Freeman asked about health care and long-term care, being in “desperate shape” with minimal care. Gudrun said they need to use more nurse practitioners and have more long-term-care facilities. Kira said this is a really important issue and they need to end the waiting list for longterm care. Lou said the Liberals added 64 new beds and $600 million in home care support and are adding more dollars in the next five years to eliminate ALC hospital beds. Rob said they need new long-term-

Merchant Boutique set to open


By Kate Everson

News - Belleville - Glenn Kozak, executive director of Trenval Business Development Corporation, has started a new business. “We are leasing 281 Front Street in Belleville,” he told the board of the Quinte Economic Development Commission. “The store will have up to twenty businesses, artisan merchandise, operated by a third party.” He said the store called Merchant Boutique is set to open on June 15. “We hope it will be a sustainable operation,” he said. “After March 31 we hope it is self-sustainable.” The building is “historic renovated space,” he adds. “We have $50,000 in it, for rent and to hire a manager,” he said. Vendors will rent space for $100 a month plus ten per cent of their sales which go back to the enterprise.

“This is different than anything we have ever done before,” Kozak noted. “It is an investment in community economic development.” He said Trenval will take an active role in the enterprise. The goal is to incubate new businesses so they can generate their own storefront. “This is not a flea market,” he insisted. “We will see a first-class professional operation with unique products.” Mayor John Williams expressed his concerns, saying it might compete with downtown stores. Kozak said these items will not be available anywhere else. Williams added, “Government should not get into retail business, just give out loans.” Ray Goulet said they are trying to stimulate young people to start their own business. Chair Ted Reid explained it is an “incubator” concept.

they don’t have one public education system. Lou said it is constitutional to have a public and Catholic system. Rob said that is part of the Canadian constitution. Ontario has 87,000 teachers unemployed and the government should monitor the labour force and push more trades. Gudrun said the constitution is not solid on this point since they have one school board in Quebec and Newfoundland. Kira said the boards need to work together to find efficiencies. Mayor John Williams made a plug for Lou, saying Rinaldi went to bat for the city. He noted the Eastern Ontario Development Fund (EODF) has been very supportive and asked if they would keep it going. Rob said, “We don’t believe in giving certain companies taxpayers’ dollars. All should benefit.” He said the EODF is a band aid solution and not helpful to the company when

it dries up. Lou said the Liberals supported the $2.5-billion ten-year strategy to keep the EODF. Rob noted that Chrysler asked for $700 million and the Liberals and NDP said yes. Hudak said no. Lou said the companies had to be competitive and added that those commitments were paid back. Randy Blair asked about trains of oil going to Lac Megantic and what party would ensure safety in Trenton. Gudrun

said the Enbridge line #9 from Montreal to Sarnia goes under every major area and now wants a reverse flow pipe to carry Alberta oil to the east coast. “No way we would support that,” she said. “And no fracking.” Lou said they need more safety nets. Rob said that

safety is prominent. Mark Reynolds, a former electrician, complained about the high cost of fees up 600 per cent. Rob said the College of Trades is misleading, and is another example of bureaucracy, and is just another tax grab. More red tape drives jobs underground.

are faulty. Kira said the Hydro should be publicly owned and accountable. Gord asked about pensions and how people could afford to contribute to a plan. Lou said they need to think of the future and make a 1.9 per cent investment. Rob said it is a job killer, and would kill 150,000 jobs in Ontario when small and medium companies have to pay into it. As a payroll tax it would be hard on people who are struggling now, especially since Hydro is going up 43 per cent over the next five years. Stewart asked if over-paid executives should have a pay freeze and cap their salaries. Kira said it made sense. Lou said that idea has been rejected. Rob said those on the sunshine list are getting “crazy increases.” Gudrun noted they make more than the premier. Taylor Ellis asked why

The city of Kalamazoo had to pay over one billion dollars in damages. “We need to demand coverage from the federal government,” he said. “We need to ask Enbridge about their emergency plan.

Don Ogden Little League Park dedicated to baseball man

News - Trenton - The Don Ogden Little League Park was officially opened on May 24, dedicated to a man who loved baseball. “It’s an honour to share this tribute with his wife Jean and their children and his sister,” said Duncan Armstrong in centre field. He also thanked the mayor for making this city “a place to play.” Mayor John Williams said it is a firstrate baseball diamond, a fitting tribute to a man who did a number of things for the community and the whole area.

The Ogden family, with Glen, Wendy, Jean and Jamie, are recognized by Mayor John Williams at the dedication.

Scott Grant, president of the Quinte West Amateur Baseball Association, also thanked the participants. Leslie Roseblade and Cindy Smith with the Sports Field Co-Op said they are still raising funds for sports and happy to donate $1,000 to the new scoreboard. “We are still going strong,” Roseblade said. “We have funds to give back to minor sports.” Boston Pizza owner Safdar Shaw and manager Stephanie Sambey also said they will donate ten per cent of their receipts to the sports field. Jamie Ogden said his father was a

Bike Summit hopes to get communities up to speed By Stephen Petrick

News - Belleville - The wheels are in motion for more bicycle-friendly communities in both Belleville and Quinte West. And a Bicycle Summit coming up on June 25 is intended to speed up that process, some local cycling advocates say. Belleville On Bikes, the Healthy Communities Partnership and other partners from throughout the Quinte region have joined forces with the Share the Road Cycling Coalition, a provincial cycling advocacy organization, to host the Quinte Region Bike Summit on Wednesday, June 25. The summit will run from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Quinte Sports & Wellness Centre, at 265 Cannifton Road. The Summit will offer inspiring Ontario success stories that highlight opporRobert Jakes, on his bicycle, and Tanya Hill are two local cycling advocates tunities for cycling tourism who are involved in the Quinte Region Bike Summit on June 25. They hope and economic development municipal officials, business people and cycling advocates will attend to and planning and engineering learn how they can benefit from a bicycle-friendly community. Photo: Stephen best practices for urban and Petrick rural communities.

The summit comes at an interesting time for local cycling enthusiasts. Belleville has recently completed a new transportation master plan that is expected to make life easier for cyclists and encourage bicycling as a transportation option for residents to get to and from work. The new emphasis on bicycling is intended to reduce congestion, improve the environment and promote a healthy community. “This is a long-term project, but it’s now moving in the right direction,” said Robert Jakes, a member of Belleville on Bikes and a co-ordinator for the upcoming summit. Jakes was a member of the stakeholder committee that gave input on the transportation plan. He said he’s encouraged by Belleville’s commitment to add bicycle lanes to Bridge Street and Yeoman Street when their reconstruction is complete. But he stressed that bicycle lanes are just one item that’s needed to encourage cycling. He says the city and business-

es can become more bicycle-friendly by having more bike racks in public places or providing more education on the benefits of cycling. Tanya Hill, a health promoter with the Hastings and Prince Edward Counties Health Unit, and a member of the Healthy Communities Partnership which is advocating for more cycling, agreed that municipalities need to do more to encourage cycling. She says she’s pleased that Quinte West also recently completed a new transportation master plan that contains “strong language” to encourage cycling as a mode of transportation. She said now the municipalities just have to carry out those commitments. It starts with educating both motorists and cyclists, so that they become accustomed to sharing the roads. “Right now motorists aren’t used to having cyclists on the road and cyclists aren’t used to sharing the road,” she said. Hill hopes municipal officials and candidates in upcoming elections will attend the summit. The event is also intended for business owners and those who work in tourism, Jakes and Hill noted. They believe business owners who accommodate cyclists stand to gain revenue, since cyclists are more likely to stop places and shop than motorists who

tend to zip by. The event will feature a speech from Dave Cieslewicz, former mayor of Madison, Wisconsin, which is known as one of the friendliest communities for cyclists in North America. And on the day before the event, Belleville Downtown DocFest will host a screening of the film Bike City, Great City, plus a community discussion with film director David Cherneshenko. The event takes place on June 24 from 6:30 to 9 p.m. at the Core Arts & Culture Centre, 223 Pinnacle Street. While those who cycle can save on gas money and contribute to a greener environment, Jakes and Hill both stress that the best benefit of cycling to work is that it allows a person to get physical exercise and it’s incorporated right into their work day. In other words, people who cycle to work don’t need to buy a gym membership and work out in the morning or evening. “We’ve engineered physical activity out of our lives,” Jakes said. “We need to bring it back in.” For more information on the June 24 screening visit <www.bellevilleonbikes. ca>. For more information on the summit, visit <>. Tickets for the summer are $35.

Bayside student awarded medal News - Quinte West - Melissa Mourez, a former Bayside Secondary School student, was awarded a silver medal for placing second in the provincial Remembrance Day competition for her black and white poster. “Melissa participated in our Legion Branch 110 annual Remembrance Poster Contest two years ago,” noted Manny Raspberry, youth educator with the Legion Youth Education program. Melissa’s Black and White Poster won first place in our Branch, our Zone and our District Poster competitions and then, placed second at our Legion Ontario Provincial level where she was awarded a silver medal.” Melissa presented a copy

of the poster to president Everett “Red” MacLean. “Melissa has created a professional quality print edition of her winning poster and is here today to present a copy of her edition to our branch,” MacLean said. “We are very proud of Melissa’s accomplishments and are very pleased to accept her poster print which we will have mounted in our Legion.” “Thank you very much Melissa for your participation in our Legion Youth Education program and congratulations on your tremendous achievement,” he added. The Legion also thanked Rob Morrow from Bayside Secondary School, head of the co-op program, for his

tremendous support. “Bayside Secondary regularly participates in every one of our youth programs thanks to Rob’s efforts,” MacLean said. “Thank you very much, Rob, for your continued support.” Morrow said the Legion programs are very important to the school. Melissa Mourez is now an arts student at the University of Ottawa. She said she thought of her father in the military when she drew the poster. “It was very emotional,” she said. “I thought of my dad coming home.” Legion representatives Red MacLean and Tamara Edwards accept a copy of the award-winning poster from artist Melissa Mourez and Bayside teacher Rob Morrow.

Less government promises, “We will protect the environment. We will improve whatever” etc., but the 1,000,000 jobs Conservatives promise is so far out, as to not bear scrutiny. That it was made with the coupled promise to slash 100,000 jobs in the public sector begs credibility. Add to the above, that the only way to reach those numbers would be to hack at municipal jobs also, presumably by cutting provincial transfers to them, makes this a triple conundrum. The deficits to all levels could

have been avoided by reinstating some of the dozens of tax cuts to the wealthy and large corporations (Canada now has the lowest corporate tax rates world-wide), mostly by Conservative federal governments, who have in the past and continue to pass the revenue cuts onto the provinces, who often pass the cuts onto the municipality (which is where I live). Perhaps off topic but related, Mr. Harper recently referred to “communism’s poisonous ideology and ruthless practices slowly

bled into countries around the world,” while encouraging China (which last time I looked is still communist) to buy up chunks of Canada and bring in their low cost labour to operate the mines, leaving Canada with the waste and few jobs, while shipping profits and resources home. We are in a world-wide race to the bottom in wages with corporations allowed free rein to move their operations where the labour rights are lowest and human rights laws non-existent or unenforced.

Reduce taxes … no! taxes? The provincial Conservatives, based on past experience, have a platform based on reducing taxes, mainly for big business, and then trying to offset the ensuing reduction in government income by reducing the number of government workers, teachers and others who provide the services we need and expect. We are still suffering from the sell-off of our assets and program cuts by the Harris administration, So I don’t think anyone really wants to revert to larger classroom sizes, longer waits in line for healthcare, and even longer

waits for government services like assistance for the less advantaged, or simply to renew your driving licence or other documents! I am willing to pay more, not less tax for a government that spends tax dollars wisely on programs to provide good education for our children, a decent healthcare and pension system for retirees, reduces our dependence on fossil fuels, protects our environment and provides compassionate help for people who are less fortunate.

ish, self-centred and shortsighted. Their mantra seems to be “I’m all right Jack, the rest of you can pull up your boot straps.” Not everyone is born with a silver spoon in their mouths, but in my opinion, those who do grow up to be egotistical, power hungry self-promoters of their own “entitlements.” History shows us that most people generally put their own interests ahead of others’. This can be very frustrating for others who truly want to make things better for humankind. How can we ease poverty, prevent homelessness, make government work better, or persuade companies to pollute less? I’m afraid we have limited options at the ballot box on June 12 and the Conservative party under Tim Hudak is certainly not one of them.

“Why GICs can LOSE you money!” - Do you feel overwhelmed by the options available for retirement planning and long for simplicity? - Do you worry about your income or cash flow now or later in retirement? If yes, you may consider the following educational presentations.

Christian Jaehn-Kreibaum, Financial Planner with Living Financial of Raymond James Ltd. bring this important, serious, great topic of discussion to you this month with two convenient dates and venues. Date: Tuesday, June 17th Times: Either 3:30pm - 5:00pm or 7:00pm - 8:30pm Location: Pentecostals of Quinte (formerly known as First Pentecostal Church) 490 Dundas Street West, Belleville

Date: Times:

Wednesday, June 18th Either 4:00pm - 5:30pm or 7:00pm - 8:30pm Location: Trenton Christian School, Trenton Attendees will learn about the retirement risks such as inflation, longevity risk and rising healthcare costs. As well, we address the low interest rate environment for fixed income investments, like GICs or Canada Savings Bonds or even savings accounts. You will learn about alternatives to the above investments, which are as safe as GICs, but will pay more income and in many cases are also very tax-efficient. Christian finds that people enjoy educational events: “My experience is that people are interested in seeing someone in person and hearing them speak as opposed to gaining information from the Internet.” Each presentation is typically about 45 minutes in length with Q&A to follow. Seating is limited to allow a more comfortable setting for interaction and discussions. Topics that will be addressed: 1) The known and “unknown” risk during retirement. 2) What do you actually receive from a GIC (after inflation and taxes.)?

3) Introducing safe and guaranteed income solutions paying more than 5.00%. 4) How to reduce your taxes payable on investment income. 5) .... and more ... Christian has hosted and conducted a series of successful seminars between October 2012 and May 2014 in Trenton and Belleville on topics such as: “The Changes to Probate in Ontario, Why GICs Will Lose You Money” and most recent on May 10th in Trenton: “Simple Steps to Your Optimum Health” with Dr. Jason Lee, a Naturopathic Doctor from Oakville, as keynote-speaker. More than 600 guests in total attended these presentations. The focus of these seminars was to educate the guests on the above mentioned topics. Christian is available to deliver this topic in person to your group (e.g. bridge club, coffee or service club, Probus Club,...).

Dear Editor, Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr., who was an American scholar and judge, has been credited with the wise saying: “Taxes are what we pay for civilized society.” It is also quoted by the IRS above the entrance to their headquarters at 1111 Constitution Avenue in Washington DC. If people expect to have services like public education, healthcare, job security, a home to live in, decent reliable pensions, etc., why do they balk at having to pay

Canadian mining companies in Guatemala show clearly how far they will go to enhance profit when allowed. The absurdity of restaurants using unpaid “interns” to serve tables, or bringing in temporary foreign workers to cut costs while 20 per cent of our unemployed have given up looking for work, is just a sample of how much concern our governments show for the tax paying public.

Free Trade cost us jobs in Ontario Dear Editor, What all those politicians who talk about jobs for Ontario seem to forget is the reason we are no longer the industrial power we once were, is not because of any action or lack of action by any of the Ontario governments, but rather, the negotiation of Free Trade with the U.S. by the Mulroney government. The auto industry, once the lynchpin of our economy has lost perhaps 50,000 good paying jobs in addition to the six to seven related spinoff jobs. This was a result of the loss of the Auto Pact when so-called Free Trade came into effect. Also, because much of the industry in Ontario consisted of American branch plants, these companies took advantage of Free Trade to rationalize their manufacturing by moving production to their U.S. plants that had excess capacity, resulting in the closure of a broad range of manufacturing plants over the years, including those that made steel, machine tools, agriculture implements, furniture, major appliances, textiles and so on. What Free Trade did was destroy good paying jobs and vastly increase corporate profits of Canadian companies, mostly service, financial and a little manufacturing, to heights never before seen in our history, while at the same time savaging wages and benefits not just for Ontario, but all Canadian workers. Unless and until we get back to fair trade agreements rather than free trade agreements nothing will change much. Gerry Michaud, Roslin

Last, many people seem to follow an old Chinese parable. When a farmer found his sick cow had died, he went fishing to console himself. Having caught a large golden fish, he was surprised to hear the fish tell him he could grant a wish if released. Having thought awhile, he asked for his neighbour’s cow to die.


Dear Editor, In response to the letter from Don and Teresa, fair comment is always welcome. Suffice to say Mr. McGuinty is not running in this election nor is he the one making the promises. The reason for this election I am told, is that the Liberal government never kept a single promise they made to the NDP after the last one, therefore the NDP saw little prospect of them keeping any they made this time around. Most politicians make general

Egypt’s man of destiny – for a while

Editorial - To the vast surprise of absolutely nobody, Field Marshal Abdel Fatah al-Sisi won the Egyptian presidential election last week. Moreover, he won it with a majority that would pass for a resounding triumph in most countries. But it is a disarmingly modest majority for an Arab Man of Destiny. Not for Sisi the implausible margins of victory claimed by Men of Destiny in other Arab countries, like the 96.3 Gwynne Dyer per cent that Egypt’s last dictator, Hosni Mubarak, claimed in his first election 21 years ago, or the spectacular 100 per cent that Iraq’s Saddam Hussein allegedly got in his last election in 2002. No, Sisi just claimed 93.3 per cent of the votes, a number low enough that it might actually be true. Sisi’s real problem is that even with the media cowed and the full resources of the state behind him, only 46 per cent of eligible Egyptians turned out to vote. He had confidently predicted an 80 per cent turnout. As an aspiring dictator who overthrew the country’s first democratically elected president, Mohamed Morsi, only one year ago, Sisi needed a big turnout. At least 1,500 protesters have been shot dead in the streets, and a minimum of 16,000 political dissidents are in jail. Sisi has shut down a popular revolution and he needed to demonstrate massive public support for what he did. He didn’t get it. Towards the end of the scheduled two days of the election, the people around him panicked. The interim prime minister, Ibrahim Mahlab, let slip that barely 30 per cent had voted so far—and the regime abruptly announced that there would be a third day of voting. An unscheduled public holiday was declared, and non-voters were threatened with a large fine. In the end, Sisi’s officials claimed a 46 per cent turnout, although journalists reported that many polling booths were almost empty on the third day. But let’s be generous and assume that 40 per cent of eligible Egyptians did vote. If 93.3 per cent of those people truly did vote for Sisi, then he has the support of just over one-third of Egyptians. Other Arab dictators have ruled their countries for decades with no more popular support than that, but it will probably not sustain Sisi through the hard times that are coming. Too many Egyptians are struggling just to feed their families. Egypt’s economy is running on fumes, and there would not

even be enough bread for people to eat—Egypt is the world’s largest importer of wheat—if Sisi were not getting massive infusions of aid from Saudi Arabia and most of the smaller Gulf states, which are very happy that he is killing off the Egyptian revolution. But even the great wealth of the Gulf kingdoms cannot win Sisi more than a breathing space: all of them together have only about a third of Egypt’s population. And there is no good reason to believe the Egyptian army, which is now effectively in charge, has the skill to resolve the country’s grave economic problems. Indeed, its highest priority will be to protect its own massive business empire. Sisi talks about how Egyptians “must work, day and night, without rest” to restore the economy after three years of revolutionary chaos, and his budget plan calls for slashing energy subsidies by 22 per cent in one year. Austerity is not going to win him any thanks from Egypt’s poor, however, and his political honeymoon will not last long. What will happen after that can be predicted from the results of Egypt’s only fully free election two years ago. Mohamed Morsi and another Islamist candidate got a total of 42 per cent of the votes in the first round of that election, while the leftist candidate, Hamdeen Sabahi, got 21 per cent. (Morsi won in the second round, when Sabahi and two other candidates had dropped out.) We can safely presume that few Islamist supporters voted at all in last week’s election. It’s clear that most of Sabahi’s former supporters also abstained: he was the only candidate who dared to run against Sisi, but he only got 3 per cent this time. Islamists and leftists therefore make up the majority of the 55-60 per cent who did not vote for Sisi this time—and that is good news for him, because the two groups have very little in common. Those who did vote for Sisi were mostly people with no strong ideological convictions who were simply exhausted by the turmoil of the past three years. They voted for “stability”, and believed Sisi’s promise that he could deliver it. So as long as they go on believing that, a deeply divided opposition poses little threat to him. But most of the people who voted for Sisi thought that when he said “stability”, he really meant an improvement in their living standards, and it’s most unlikely that he can deliver that. When they lose faith in Sisi, the opposition will achieve critical mass, and it probably won’t take more than two years. The Egyptian revolution is not over yet.


Liberals simply ignore the debt crisis

Dear Editor, The province of Ontario is deeper in debt than any other jurisdiction in North America yet the Liberals’ major platform admits it will spend even more taxpayer dollars which will inevitably bankrupt the government coffers. Liberals scoff at Conservative leader Tim Hudak’s intention of producing thousands of new jobs, saying he will actually eliminate jobs, yet the Liberals are the party that has significantly reduced the job market with extreme business regulations and ridiculously high hydro rates. Hundreds of good businesses have decided to leave Ontario in order to survive. Although they are hesitant to admit, Premier Kathleen Wynne and her Liberal buddies have swung so far left, they are now even more extreme socialists than the NDP. Just remember when you go the polls to cast your ballot,

if this Liberal government was a family with annual income of $50,000, each of you would have $112,500 in credit card debt and would be adding $5,000 to the credit card bill every year. Does that sound like Wynne and her socialists know what they’re doing? Plagued with scandals that add up to billions of dollars the Liberals have stolen from the taxpayers, how can the presiding government have the basic gall to try to make you believe otherwise? The modus operandi is to continue to lie as they attempt to cling to power. Isn’t it about time to send these Liberals a strong message that you shouldn’t be rewarded for being basically dishonest for the past decade?

Singing the blues By Terry Bush

Editorial - It’s a dream come true for NHL commissioner Gary Bettman. The dust has settled and the Stanley Cup finals are under way with both coasts of the USA represented in the final showdown. Not only are both coasts highlighted but the country’s two premier cities will be showcased as well, New York City and Los Angeles. I’m sure Bettman’s pillow is soaked each and every night from the drool creeping out of the corners of his perma-smile. And the best part for Gary is of course there are none of those darn Canadian teams involved that might dissuade American viewers from tuning in to NBC. Bettman may even escape a few of the usual boos that rain down on him every year when he presents the cup. But then again, that has become a Stanley Cup tradition especially for the fans present who have some knowledge of the goings on in Bettman’s quest to Americanize the product. It will be a Stanley Cup final for the ages. There will be countless celebrities within camera range in both arenas wanting to be seen and possibly heard. Some may even know a little bit about hockey. But I’m a little bitter about the outcome myself. I was really hoping for a Chicago/Montreal finale but alas, it was not to be. I would have had a hard time picking a team to cheer for in that scenario anyway. I’ve always had a soft spot in my heart for the Chicago Blackhawks and that’s also the team my wife Mare was cheering for, though she doesn’t pronounce the word Blackhawks the same way I do. I think that’s a woman thing. Two much emphasis on the “k” after the “c”. By cheering for, I mean occasionally asking if the Hawks were winning as she walked past the TV on her way to check her email. She’s pretty much lost interest since her man Jerome Iginla was eliminated when Boston bit the dust. Mare just loves Jerome, not for his hockey skills so much but because he has a nice smile and she thinks he’s a friendly guy. I liked the Hawks because I loved them as a kid in the 60s when Bobby Hull and Stan Mikita were at their zeniths and I was one card shy of a full set of Chicago hockey cards. I’d love to have them back along with my Beatles cards but both are sadly in the Stirling dump after someone decided to clean out the basement. I was also cheering for the Blackhawks because Belleville boy Andrew Shaw is on the squad and you’ve got to support your local talent especially a gamer like Shaw. Same deal with the Habs. Loved the way Dustin Tokarski stepped in and basically stood on his head to give the Canadiens a chance at the final after Carey Price was injured. And the fact that PK Subban used to play for the Belleville Bulls was certainly taken into consideration. But it wasn’t to be and even more disappointing than my teams being eliminated is the fact that two of my favourite anthem singers won’t be singing in the Stanley Cup final. Is there anyone who wasn’t inspired by Ginette Reno’s singing of our national anthem? Sure, most of it was in French and many of us have long since forgotten the words we learned in school but Ms. Reno’s no-nonsense approach was appreciated by the fans and players. No fist pumping, thumbs up, winks or any distractions, just an awesome performance followed by a couple of handshakes with players on the bench. I could swear Ginette flew her tanned self in from Florida each week for the occasion. In contrast, Rene Rancourt’s dye job and fist pumping just didn’t do it for me during the Bruins’ series. He must be an acquired taste. Same thing with the Rangers’ John Amirante. Not a great singer and not a great rug. He’s a New York tradition obviously and they’ll keep him around as long as he can still sing but The Big Apple is home to Broadway after all so it’s not as if there’s nobody with better chops waiting in the wings to take his place. The Chicago Blackhawks have one of the best anthem singers in the NHL in Jim Cornelison. When he gets going on the Star Spangled Banner, I always feel a strange compulsion to enlist in the U.S. Army for some reason and it’s not because a couple of veterans past and present are standing nearby. There’s something about the way he sings it full throttle that’s almost inspiring, not quite inspiring enough to make it to the final but it did take the Hawks to game 7 and then to overtime. On another note, has anyone else noticed that there always seems to be guns involved during the singing of the U.S. anthem? Just not quite sure what weapons have to do with a hockey game other than the fact that games are often referred to as battles. We don’t see that on a regular basis in Canada but then again, vive la différence. The closest we’ve come was seeing Lyndon Slewidge in his OPP uniform. Another great anthem singer but I could do without the wink and thumbs up silliness. Finish the song and smile at a job well done Lyndon. One of these decades, you might just make it to the finals too.

News - Quinte West - A letter from the Hamilton Police Services Board asking the OPP to support suspension without pay for serious misconduct of officers has been deferred. “This is a personnel issue we don’t deal with as a board,” commented board chair Jim Alyea. Staff Sergeant Dave Tovell says the endorsement would just support their belief. Alyea said this has to do with provincial employees, not municipal. “We can comment but as far as saying we want people suspended, we have no power,” he said. “They would need to amend the Police Services Act to suspend without pay.” The board decided to defer


Alyea said they have done it for eight or nine years to honour a police board member. Ted Reid said everyone has a good cause, but he was concerned about setting a precedent. He felt donations should be in line with policing and community safety. He suggested they

families enjoyed hearing the music, since some had played in the band and were from a military community. “This is close to home for many of them,” she said with a smile. Chisholm added there were a lot of guests who came for the great lunch cooked up by chef Trevor McMillan. “It was fabulous!” she added.

the item and talk to Inspector Reynolds about it. Another request for support came from the Alzheimer Society, Belleville Hastings Quinte, asking for a $200 donation. Alyea noted the board started giving donations to the Alzheimer Society when Eben James was on the board, because Babe James had passed away with Alzheimer’s. They sponsored a golf tournament for $200. The only other donations they give out are for Police Day and Christmas. Their budget is $3,000. “A precedent was set from previous boards for Alzheimer’s,” he said. Ron Hamilton wondered if they should continue, since they might have all kinds of applications.

Council supports Trenton Memorial Hospital Foundation By Kate Everson

News - Quinte West - Council has committed ongoing support to the local Trenton Memorial Hospital (TMH) Foundation. At Monday’s council meeting a presentation was made by Quinte Health Care CEO Mary Clare Egberts and board vice chair Phil Ward. “Thank you for your $1-million commitment,” Eg-

berts said with a smile. She said health care is evolving and Trenton Memorial Hospital is also. She noted three new clinics are being added at TMH, including diabetes education, medical day clinic and geriatric assessment and intervention. “We are very committed to TMH,” she said. Vice Chair Phil Wild said the local hospital has a new

medical day treatment area, new beds and stretchers, medical equipment, opthalmology and ultrasound equipment. He noted the Kay Stafford Fund is still being used from a $1.2-million endowment, providing money for local organizations in health care, equipment and services. Fund raisers help the Foundation through the Healthy Half Marathon, Golf Classic, toll road, Orient Express event and Scrub In. Wild said in 2014/2015 they added two urologists to the team and $1.5 million in priority medical equipment. They have also committed to a Master Planning Report at a cost of $65,000 which will deal with current geography and demographics to TMH. Ron Hamilton congratulated Quinte Health Care for balancing its budget this year, but he is concerned about where Trenton hospital is going. He wondered if there were ambulances sitting at Belleville hospital when they should be in Trenton so people don’t have to wait so long. Egberts said there has been no impact on the ambulance wait times and the EMS is doing a terrific job. There is also a new non-urgent patient transfer service in place. Hamilton asked if they are letting people out of the hospital too early and sending them home with no services, especially seniors. Egbert said as part of the transformation of health care they are transferring more services to the community. Community Care Access Centre services are growing. However, she acknowledged, “Not

every patient will have a great return home. We are monitoring it.” Hamilton asked if the doctors at CFB Trenton are helping out occasionally. Egberts said they do work with the base, and are helping military families at TMH. “We are constantly in partnership,” she said. Fred Kuypers had only one complaint. He spent five hours in emergency last week and wanted to know if they could adjust the gowns. “They need Velcro!” he

said. Sally Freeman said home care is not what it is supposed to be. For some seniors there is nowhere to go. “It’s not all peachy keen out there,” she said. “Going home means a lack of services. We are all taxpaying citizens. It is a bit disgraceful!” Egberts talked about the new provincial pilot program called Health Links which manages the sick and elderly. Freeman said home care still lacks funding. “It’s not all rosy,”

she said. Egberts said they need to express their dissatisfaction at election time. Terry Cassidy asked if council will be consulted regarding the new Master Planning Report. Egberts replied, “Not usually, but I can take that back.” Jim Harrison said his experience with the hospital is most favourable and his mother is 94 and still at home. Doug Whitney asked if the Please see “Hospital” on page 11

Investment in Innovations brings new jobs to southern Ontario communities

News - Quinte West - Ray Goulet told the board of Quinte Economic Development Commission that the Southern Ontario Fund for Investment in Innovation is bringing new jobs. “They had 17 loans approved in 12 months,” Goulet said. “Thirteen of these have been funded.” He said the average interest rate on the loans is 11 per cent. They have loaned out $8.5 million so far and have $12 million more to lend. “It stimulates the economy,” he said. “It is our risk.” Mayor John Williams commented, “The risk is high, but the interest is high.” Goulet said some of the new businesses started with this high-interest

loan include manufacturing disposable bedpans, anti-blood products, special glasses, circuit board designer, dental technician equipment, solar controller, turning 3D pictures to 2D, computers for aviation, acoustic separators, maintenance assistant software,

and cell phone programs. One local applicant was NOD Apiary which controls mites on bee farms. That has created 15 jobs and has expanded its product to Europe. It is backed by a German company. “The companies are quite di-

versified,” he said. Elisha Purchase from Brighton said they are hiring an economic co-ordinator in June and are paving the industrial park. Mayor Walas said there is an upswing in business statistics. Brad Little from Quinte

changes in the emergency department means quicker service. Egberts said it is still not doing well with people regarding wait times unless the person is really sick. Mayor John Williams said the VON is saying it could still use a lot more help. He asked about the new senior clinic. Egberts said the clinic is for people with multiple needs and conditions. Williams said he is glad they did not have to stand out in front of the hospital this year waving placards Save Our Hospital. He said he does not envy Egberts her job. He was on the board for a long time and it is a challenge because there is never enough money. The baby boomers will need more and more services.

West said tenders have been awarded for “wayfinding” signage to be directional into the city, not promotional. Chuck O’Malley, corporate training for Loyalist College, said they are acting on results from a survey and are doing another one in June for downtown businesses. Mayor Williams said the marina project is moving forward with tenders out for dredging. The city is working with MP Rick Norlock to find a solution to the swing bridge on the Murray Canal. “One lane ain’t gonna work,” he said.

Just Teeth

Dr. Brian Ho

Our ability to eat and chew different types of food is dependent on a whole system of events that breaks down food into pieces that we can swallow. It involves much more than just our teeth. One of the most important aspects of our chewing system is our jaw joint, more specifically the temporomandibular joint. For simplicity sake, let’s refer to this joint as the TM joint. When people experience problems with their TM joint, the condition is known as temporomandibular dysfunction or TMD. Here are some of the signs and symptoms of TMD: 1. Clicking sounds from joint during opening and closing

2. Pain during opening or closing or while eating 3. Locking of jaw joint

up. Ann Drennan, dean of Applied Science at Loyalist College, said they are working with more businesses to support careers and trades, aligning students with industry. Chuck O’Malley commented, “There are gaps in skill sets.” He said allowing students to be trained at Loyalist in their skill means they don’t have to travel long distances. Glenn Kozak said the Natural History Museum will soon be approved for charitable status and the board will then take over the project. They are developing a promotional video and making site plans. “The next step is fund raising,” he said. “It’s a fantastic project.”

4. Grinding or clenching habits

5. Limited opening of the mouth 6. Headaches 7. Pain in the shoulder and back To determine whether you have TMD and what types of treatment would be appropriate for you, it is important that you see your dentist for a thorough examination of your jaw joint. Your dentist can also take various radiographs (x-rays) and examine your occlusion or bite, in order to help determine the cause of your TMD. Once a diagnosis of TMD has been established, treatment can begin. Here are some treatment options for patients with TMD: 1. Oral appliance therapy (oral orthotics) 2. Bite adjustment or alteration 3. Medications 4. Surgery Because TMD can be such a debilitating condition that affects so many aspects of daily life especially eating and sleeping, it is important that you visit your dentist to determine if you have TMD and to find out what treatment options are appropriate for you.

The reply was that 7-9 pm it is not currently provided but it might be 7 days a week if a request were to come from the Medical Advisory Committee to have it added to the formulary. Less “good newsy” was a report from Katherine Stansfield, vice-president and chief nursing officer, that QHC has experienced “high rates of admission of medical patients in all four hospitals since October of 2013. She said there is no one specific cause but most cases can be attributed to an aging population and the medical and health problems associated with that fact. She also reported on plans to “mitigate” the problem in next year’s priorities. They include establishing geriatric assessment clinics at both Belleville General and Trenton Memorial hospital. Some additional funding is available for such special care from the Ministry of Health, she said.

News - Belleville - It was a good news day for the Quinte Health Care Board at its May meeting on May 27. The main excitement was a report from finance officials that the board nears the end of its business year with at least a balanced budget and possibly a small surplus of around $100,000. This was achieved despite locked in rising costs from labour contracts and cutbacks in previous levels of provincial funding. Not such good news was the reality that board and staff must do it all over again next year. Another highlight was news of success in recruiting new physicians, especially pediatricians. QHC has been trying to bring its pediatrician crew up to strength for many months. By this summer, the board was told, QHC will have a core of four fulltime pediatricians, or the equivalent. Also, two new family physicians have signed on—one to Trenton Memorial emergency department and the other with an exclusively based hospital practice in both the emergency and inpatient unit at TMH. In a push for many months for improved care standards, QHC met all five of its corporate goals for the second consecutive year. A major project the board has been discussing for some months is an education centre within the Belleville complex to better facilitate training sessions. The area is also being considered for community groups and meeting sessions. The board Tuesday accepted a recommendation from the Finance Committee

Roads suffering from â&#x20AC;&#x153;20 years of neglectâ&#x20AC;? By Richard Turtle

News - Stirling - Present road conditions in the municipality are the result of 20 years of neglect, says Clerk-Administrator Charles Croll, adding officials are doing what they can to correct problems in a timely fashion. The comments came during the most recent meeting of Stirling-Rawdon Council when local resident Roger Barrett aired his concerns about â&#x20AC;&#x153;some dangers out there that need to be addressed.â&#x20AC;? While the condition of his own road he described as â&#x20AC;&#x153;excellentâ&#x20AC;? since the application of a gravel layer two years ago, he says the nearby Hoards Road and others have serious issues, ranging from

crumbling pavement to ditching practices, that could cause accidents and injury. In many cases, Barrett says, the hazardous sections are relatively small and should be addressed immediately. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to stop these little drive-by fixes,â&#x20AC;? Croll says, but adds there is only money for two or three major projects each year and priorities need to be maintained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got one of the ten best Asset Management Plans going,â&#x20AC;? Croll said referring to recent provincial acknowledgement that Stirling-Rawdon had an exemplary submission, adding it is the municipalityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s intention to stick with that plan. He added that in order

to do proper corrective work the municipality has to schedule one of â&#x20AC;&#x153;only two shouldering machines in this part of Ontario.â&#x20AC;? The demand is high, with other municipalities and counties on the list, he says. Councilor Grant Hagerman also noted that vandalism and the theft of signs around roadwork sites has created unnecessary work for roads crews, adding it is not uncommon for newly resurfaced rural roads to be â&#x20AC;&#x153;torn upâ&#x20AC;? as a result of deliberate mischief. Deputy-mayor Wilfred Shier, who chaired the meeting in the absence of Mayor Rodney Cooney, told Barrett his specific concerns would be raised at the next Transportation

Committee. He added that any instances of road vandalism should be reported and encouraged Barrett and others to do so. There is still no word on the fate of former Stirling-Rawdon Police Services Board (PSB) Chair Greg Oliver, who was removed from the post nearly three years ago. Asked what information the Ontario Civilian Police Commission had offered recently regarding a public hearing into Oliverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s conduct, Shier said there has been nothing to report. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what to tell you,â&#x20AC;? Shier, also a member of the PSB, responded to the question from the gallery. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just as anxious to have it finalized as anybody.â&#x20AC;?

Foundation supporters golf so kids can play sports, too

By Stephen Petrick

News - Belleville - More than 100 golfers hit the links at Black Bear Ridge last Thursday. And because they did, countless local children will soon be able to play a sport of their choice, too. The Quinte Children’s Foundation hosted its annual Play a Round for The Kids Tournament. Although

the foundation supports numerous programs, funds raised at this event were primarily for its Playing for Keeps program, which allows children from lowincome families to sign up for competitive sports and activities. Playing for Keeps is a program that works with various sports and recreation groups, Quinte Chil-

Quinte Economic Development Commission builds business

By Kate Everson

News - Belleville - Glenn Kozak, executive director of Trenval Business Development Corporation, has started a new business. “We are leasing 281 Front Street in Belleville,” he told the board of the Quinte Economic Development Commission. “The store will have up to twenty businesses, artisan merchandise, operated by a third party.” He said the store called Merchant Boutique is set to open on June 15. “We hope it will be a sustainable operation,” he said. “After March 31 we hope it is self-sustainable.” The building is “historic renovated space,” he adds. “We have $50,000 in it, for rent and to hire a manager,” he said. Vendors will rent space for $100 a month plus ten per cent of their sales which go back to the enterprise. “This is different than anything we have ever done before,” Kozak noted. “It is an investment in community economic development.” He said Trenval will take an active role in the enterprise. The goal is to incubate new businesses so they can generate their own storefront. “This is not a flea market,” he insisted. “We will see a first-class professional operation with unique products.” Mayor John Williams expressed his concerns, saying it might compete with downtown stores. Kozak said these items will not be available anywhere else. Williams added, “Government should not get into retail business, just give out loans.” Ray Goulet said they are trying to stimulate young people to start their own business. Chair Ted Reid explained it is an “incubator” concept.

has strong community support, Reid said. The foundation has been around for 22 years and its profile has grown over the years. “I think it’s the community

knowing what the foundation is doing,” Reid said, explaining the rise in demands. “We’ve really focused on our communications over the past year. More families know we’re out

there and different clubs know we’re there to help.” For more information, or to donate to the Quinte Children’s Foundation, visit <>.

dren’s Foundation Executive Director Connie Reid said. Families who demonstrate a financial need can apply for funding to sign their child up for whatever activity he or she chooses. “They can apply online. And we have really great relationships with the clubs,” said Reid, noting the foundation works closely with people involved with local hockey, soccer programs and dance clubs, among other sports and activity groups. Reid said Playing for Keeps has helped 300 children from within Hastings County register for programs within the last year. That includes children from Belleville and Trenton, but also smaller communities like Stirling, Madoc and Tweed. It appears more kids will benefit from the program in the coming year, too. Thursday’s tournament included 144 golfers, numerous sponsors, and a large silent auction. Organizers were expecting to raise $40,000 on the day. Reid explained that while the Quinte Children’s Foundation works closely with Highland Shores Children’s Aid—and in fact works out of the same building—it is its own separate organization, with a different board of directors. Its programs benefit the entire community, not just kids in care of Children’s Aid. Another popular Quinte Children’s Foundation program is the Camps of Hope program, which helped pay for more than 100 area children to attend various camps last year; and not just summer camps. “It’s not just for a specific camp,” Reid said. “Children have all sorts of different interests. We have kids that go to outdoor camps, but we also have computer camps or craft camps. We also have camps in March Break and Christmas time, as well.” Reid said demand for Quinte Children’s Foundation programs seems to be going up every year, especially the Playing for Keeps program, which has seen a dramatic rise in applications. That may be because of the economy, but it might also have to do with the fact that the organization

Michael Kotsovos running for Trenton Ward councillor By Kate Everson

News - Trenton - Michael Kotsovos has put his name in the ring for Trenton Ward councillor in the municipal election. “My family has always had community ties,” he says. “We have sponsored teams and made charitable donations.” He has coached soccer and ball hockey as well. “I was born and raised in Trenton,” he adds. “I met my wife at

Trenton High School.” His wife Natalie is a teacher at St. Peter Catholic School. They have two children, a daughter, eight, and son, six. “We are rooted here,” he notes. “We have no intention of moving. I’d like to see this city continue to flourish and reach maximum potential.” He says he wants to preserve facilities for youth and create enough for them to do in the area. He loves the parks, the YMCA and splash

pads here. Michael works full time at Tomasso’s restaurant on Front Street with his parents Tom and Cindy and brothers Andrew and Mark. “We all have roles in the restaurant,” he adds. “We are trained in all areas.” Michael has a major in history from the University of Guelph and has always had an interest in politics. He is vice president of the Quinte West Chamber of Com-

merce, as well as being on the tourism committee. “We’re on the right track for the downtown,” he says. “We fill a niche market, since we can’t compete with the big box stores.” He feels the new marina and waterfront improvement will be good for the city. “It will draw people here,” he says. Michael adds it is time for new people to sit on council so the ideas don’t get stagnant.

Perfect weather for club open house News - Trenton - The Trenton Rowing and Paddling Club held their first ever spring open house Sunday and the weather could not have been more perfect. “The sunshine and the calm waters made it a perfect day to come down to the boathouse to find out more about the club and to try out a boat,” said Robin Pilon, event co-ordinator. Olympic Silver Medallist in rowing and TRPC Head Coach Jeff Lay was on hand to provide some demonstrations, coaching tips and to answer questions. Lay said he was “very happy with the turnout, especially with the interest in our learn to row programs.” Lay encourages those interested in learn to row lessons to contact them at <info@> to get their name on the pre-registration list for July. “Our June learn to row program is full,” he says. Harold Tripp, TRPC Paddling Director, was very pleased with the turnout for the group paddle. “We had a great group of new paddlers join in who now have decided they would like to do more paddling The Trenton Rowing and Paddling Club held its open house on June 1. Here some rowers, Jacques and Robin Pilon, enjoy a sunny day on the river. Photo: Kate Everson with the club,” says Tripp, who will be busy planning more paddling events for this season to keep up with the demand. He says, “It’s a great way to meet other paddling members, to paddle in the safety of a group while at the same time, getting some fresh air and exercise.” Paddling memberships can be purchased separately from rowing memberships. The rates are: single: $125, couple: $200, family: $300. Although the club encourages you to have your own kayak or canoe, the club does have a limited number of canoes and kayaks available to use for club paddling events, at no extra charge to TRPC members. TRPC membership director Suzanne Wade and treasurer Suzanne Andrews were busy taking registrations for memberships and boat storage while TRPC board member Debbie Baldasaro was kept busy serving up refreshments and a barbecue lunch. Participants had a chance to check out a variety of equipment that was on display and watch the white water kayak demonstration.

Mowat, Hennessy, Anderson, and Greer win on Fan Appreciation Night

Sports - Brighton – Brandon Mowat glued himself to the bottom of the racetrack and led 16 laps to win his first career Vanderlaan Building Supplies Pro Late Model feature event at Brighton Speedway on Saturday night. Mowat used a lap 14 pass to steal the lead from Matt Vanderlinden on Fan Appreciation night. The Pro Late Model race was slow to start as a pair of cautions on lap one slowed the field. On the third attempt, Vanderlinden wasted no time jumping to the lead from his third-place starting spot over polesitter Terry Hunt. With an increasingly slick racetrack, Vanderlinden was the only driver to try the highline and carved out a small cushion at the top of the track.

Mowat slowly closed the gap and the two drivers ran wheelto-wheel for the lead at lap six. The high side gave Vanderlinden the momentum early on, but the grip deteriorated in the following laps. As the top pair worked through lapped traffic, Vanderlinden could not get around Norm Mayhew. Mowat spotted his opportunity and guarded the bottom lane to take over the point. Once he gained the lead, Mowat sprinted his way to the finish line, leaving Vanderlinden to fend for the second spot. The battle for third was heated in the closing laps as Steve Baldwin and Charlie Sandercock chased Adam Turner. Turner held the position while Baldwin outdueled Sandercock for fourth.

Hennessy dominant in Canadian Modified win It took three races, but 2008 champion Andrew Hennessy dominated Saturday night to win his first OilGARD Anti-Rust Canadian Modified A-Main of the season. The win comes in the first round of the RONA Trenton Triple Crown. After an accident took him out of the lead last week, Hennessy said in victory lane the win this week was more satisfying. “It’s great. I want to win them all,” said Hennessy. Anderson tops Pro Stocks for third straight week Justin Ramsay won on opening night, but the Brighton Automotive Pro Stock division has been the Doug Anderson show ever since. The multi-time champ

made an exciting three-wide pass on lap 16 to get by Ramsay and Wade Purchase in a single corner to win the A-Main. Riley Greer wins first Comp 4 feature After several early season mechanical problems, Riley Greer finally saw the fruits of his labour and scored his first career Bill’s Johns Comp 4 division feature win. Greer started on the pole for the 15-lap feature, and led every circuit en route to victory. The Wellington pilot saw his

lead disappear when his older brother, Brady Greeg (No.94 Greer Excavating), went over the berm in turn four to cause the only caution of the race. Riley was excellent on the restart and continued to lead. The win marks the third time in four races a Greer brother has won the main event. Brady won the opening two races before Hough ended the streak on May 24. Larry’s Towing 1-on-1 Spectator Races Jordy Pratt swept through the

spectator races to take home the $100 winner’s prize. His red Honda Civic had some competition from Adam Davidson’s Acura RSX in the final, but Pratt won the two-lap finale against his best friend. School Bus races next week – June 7, 2014 The first of two school bus races this summer takes place next weekend at Brighton Speedway. The always-popular bus races are sure to attract a capacity crowd once again.

Vintage motorcycles descend on Shannonville

By Stephen Petrick

Sports - Shannonville - The sound of classic motorcycle engines revving echoed throughout Shannonville Motorsport Park’s sun-soaked stadium bleachers last weekend. Meanwhile, enthusiasts camped out in trailers and tents, brought out tool kits to fix their bikes, snapped photos and swapped stories, all in celebration of a unique hobby and style of racing. The three-day event, hosted by the Vintage Road Racing Association, brought out about 140 racers and dozens more spectators to the park located east of Belleville, off Highway 2. There were 22 different classes of bikes, explained Shannonville’s race director Chris Chapelle. Most of the motorcycles racing, he said, were models from 1989, or earlier. Generally, a bike has to be 25 years or older to be considered vintage. And while the racing was competitive, most racers, Chapelle said, were just there for a good time. The campsite seemed just as active as the track itself, with tonnes of bikers out and about, enjoying a perfect spring weekend and a gentle breeze. “It’s an interesting following because it’s just club racing for vintage bikes,” Chapelle said. “It’s pretty relaxed. They don’t take it too seriously. “It’s a hobby for them. They pick up an old bike and get in ready to go vintage racing.” Please see “Shannonville” on page B3

Entertainment – Belleville Do characters in Grimm’s fairy tales really ‘live happily ever after’? The musical comedy, Into the Woods, by Stephen Sondheim is the last production for this season by Belleville Theatre Guild. It premiers on May 29 and runs until June 14 at Pinnacle Playhouse in Belleville. Tickets cost $25 a piece. (Seniors $22, students $10) Into the Woods explores some of possibilities of what happens to fairy tale characters in the next chapter of their lives. Act 1, introduces fairy tale favourites Cinderella, Rapunzel, and their princes, Little Red Riding Hood, the Baker and his wife, Jack, the giant killer, and his mother; the wicked wolf and the ubiquitous scheming witch. In Act II, things start to get grimmer as those who got their heart’s desire in the first act discover that the quest was more exciting than the prize and those who were

wronged come back to seek their revenge, including the giant’s homicidal wife. The play is alternately hilarious and thought provoking. The play is directed by Steve Forrester with musical direction by David Farmer, and choreography by AmyLyn Van Londersele. Dave Henderson is the producer; Darren Cole, stage manager;. Dave Alexander, set design: Sean Scully. set construction and props; Beth Callwell, costumes and Donna Douglas, rehearsal pianist. Forrester said that although there are several veteran actors from the Theatre Guild Roster, the production is predominantly young actors and actresses who are still in school or in their twenties. Among the veterans are Al Zaback as the baker, Moira Nikander-Forrester as the baker’s wife, Nancy Garrod playing a variety of roles including, Cinderella’s mother, Red Riding Hood’s

Meyers farm demolished but Frank is holding on

By Kate Everson

News - Quinte West - Frank Meyers is hanging on, despite his farm being demolished in front of his eyes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m as good as can be,â&#x20AC;? he said, the day after demolition crews started knocking down his barns on May 28. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to see the government destroying prime farmland,â&#x20AC;? he added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not enough food to go around.â&#x20AC;? He said Harper is blasting Putin for terrorism when heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s doing the same thing in his own country with pencil and paper â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bullying,â&#x20AC;? Frank added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All I ever wanted was farmland.â&#x20AC;? Frank said a lot of people showed up at the site the day the crews started tearing down his buildings. Now there was

just one supporter, Daryl from Ottawa who saw it on Facebook. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just here for Frank,â&#x20AC;? Daryl said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want to make sure heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s okay.â&#x20AC;? Meanwhile, military police parked across the tracks, making sure no one interfered with the demolition, which is making way for a Joint Task Force 2, an expansion to CFB Trenton. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I stood near the tracks and they were ready, with their hands on their guns,â&#x20AC;? Frank said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They were ready for a ďŹ ght. They were going to shoot me!â&#x20AC;? Frank said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a shame they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t recycle some of the material, the steel at least, from the barns. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a waste,â&#x20AC;? he said. He added there are 3,000 bales of hay and straw in that barn that is no good now. They also stopped access to his 60 acres of corn that he couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get off in

the fall because of the wet weather. Frank plans to stay at his home, across from his seized property, with his wife Marjorie, and he will keep farming on what he has left. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have 30 acres of workable land,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And a shed.â&#x20AC;? He built the shed last fall for his tractor but he needs somewhere to store the rest of his farm equipment. Asked if he could use the promised $3.3 million from the government to build a new barn, he said he did not have

the money. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know where it is,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was returned on February 4, 2014. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have it.â&#x20AC;? Frank has rented land all over that he can continue to farm, with help from his son. But he has a lot of anger inside against the government for destroying his barns and taking his land. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I spent all my life here,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And my father before me. I was raised here. We have had this land since 1798 â&#x20AC;Ś my forefathers given this property

forever.â&#x20AC;? He said he hated to watch them tear down his barn, knowing there were barn swallows nesting in there. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an endangered species!â&#x20AC;&#x153; he said. He added there are four creeks running through the property and they were probably going to get polluted now. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t care for the pickerel ďŹ shing, they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t care about the barn swallows,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They just want to show the country theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got power.â&#x20AC;?

All the typical brands of motorcycles were present: Yamahas, Hondas and Kawasakis. However, the event was graced with the presence of a few interesting and rare motorcycles. Chapelle said there were two â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rudgesâ&#x20AC;? at the event on Saturday. A Rudge is a type of motorcycle thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s often black and low to the ground. They were generally made in the 1920s and 1930s and, thus today, are an extremely rare ďŹ nd. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re extremely valuable,â&#x20AC;? said Chapelle. Most of the motorcycles racing, he said, were models from the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s. Despite their age, they can still be patched up to race quite well. In fact, he said, some might argue that their parts are more suitable for racing than todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s newer models, which are made from lighter parts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some of these bikes are older,

heavier and solidly put together,â&#x20AC;? he said. The event started with qualifying races Friday and Saturday. By the time the ďŹ nal heats took place Sunday, a few hundred people had packed the grandstand. The racers and fans came from across the region, Chapelle said, and included a large contingent from Quebec and small groups from New York State and other pockets of Ontario. More are expected this weekend when the track hosts the 50th annual Mopar Canadian Superbike Championships, from Friday to Sunday. About 100 motorcyclists from across the country are expected to descend on the track to race in a number of different classes. The event will start with practice runs Friday and Saturday morning, leading to qualifying runs Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning. By Sunday afternoon, the motorcyclists will be competing for trophies.

Victims of sexual assault seeking help earlier than older generation By John Campbell

News - Campbellford About 70 per cent of the people who sought out help at the Kawartha Sexual Assault Centre last year were survivors of sexual assaults in their childhood.

Now adults, they were “trying to make their way in the world and having a hard time [doing] that,” said Karen Basciano, the centre’s public education and special events co-ordinator. People who have been sex-

ually assaulted are seeking support earlier these days, which is “more helpful” to their recovery “than waiting 20 or 30 years when the impacts are so embedded in their lives,” said Suzie Compeau, a counsellor. Basciano and Compeau were in town May 31 hosting an outdoor Dessert Fest, the fourth and final event in a series of fund raisers the centre held during Sexual Assault Prevention Month throughout the four counties it serves. One of every two women and one of every five men “will be sexually assaulted at some point,” Basciano said. The assaults can range from inappropriate touching to penetration. The public has the misconception that most sexual assaults are committed by strangers whose victims are attacked while they are in vulnerable situations, such as “walking alone at night,” Compeau said. But the majority of cases, 85 to 90 per cent, involve someone they know, she said, including family members, coaches, church figures or Scout leaders, for example. More adults are stepping forward with tales of sexual abuse years after the fact because of efforts to educate the public that victims were not at fault for what took place, in order to bring the problem out in the open, she said. “We see a lot of older clients, in their 50s and 60s.”

They kept silent about the abuse they suffered while a child because it wasn’t talked about back then “what happened in the home or within families,” Compeau said. “Sex education wasn’t a really big thing,” but today, “our society has become more sexualized,” which has created its own set of problems, including easy access to pornography over the Internet to children as young as eight years old, and the rise of sexting, in which young people send risque photos of themselves or others and “think nothing of it,” Compeau said. “They watch Miley Cyrus half-naked on videos,” Basciano said. “The media seems to make sexuality or sexual assault acceptable.” The result is a generation “desensitized” to sexual assaults, Compeau added. “It’s become very normalized [to look upon] this rape culture [as being] cool.” Basciano said she’s had “numerous calls from high schools” asking her to come talk to the students because “they talk about rape like it’s game.” Their lingo includes such phrases as “I raped that test,” she said. She’s been with the centre 14 years. “You almost feel like a hamster in a wheel sometimes, you’re just keeping up” with the problems caused by changes taking place in society that are not all

for the better, she said. The centre’s mission is “to support those effected by sexual violence and to impact social change within our community.” It currently has a caseload of about 70 individuals receiving individual counselling. Services include a 24-hour

crisis support line (1-866298-7778), one-on-one counselling for women and men, peer support, workshops, and presentations to high school and post-secondary students. More than 50 volunteers help staff the crisis line, assist with bingo fund raisers, and provide administrative support.

Strut for Strays event should be doggone good time By Stephen Petrick

News - Belleville - A big fundraising event in Belleville this Saturday should provide some tailwagging fun. Fixed Fur Life is holding its ninth annual Strut for Strays at Zwicks Island Park, from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. The event raises funds for the registered charity so it can pay for spaying and neutering of dogs and cats. Fixed Fur Life also helps lowincome families pay for large, unexpected vet bills. Since the organization formed about ten years ago, it has helped co-ordinate the spaying and neutering of more than 16,000 animals in the Belleville/Quinte

West region, said founder Darlene Quinsey. “We keep growing,” she said. Strut for Strays is the organization’s biggest fund raiser of the year. Last year the event raised $40,000 and Quinsey hopes to top that mark this year. The event starts at 9:30 a.m. with a walk along the riverfront trail. The walkers will have gathered pledges to participate. After the walk, Zwicks Island will be alive with activity. The Ultimate Air Dogs of Canada will be there to put on a show. There will also be more than 70 vendors selling products. Dog owners are encouraged to bring their pets, as veterinarians

will be on hand to offer checks and microchipping services. There will also be a pet costume and an ice cream eating contest for dogs. While Strut for Strays is a fun, family oriented event, the funds it raises will go toward a serious problem. Quinsey said that controlling dog and cat population is always a struggle, especially for cats which can give birth to large litters several times a year. She founded Fixed Fur Life after touring shelters in other parts of Ontario and learning that there were few programs available to help pet owners pay for spaying and neutering. She says about 80 per cent of the

cats her organization has fixed have been female. This will hopefully, in time, lead to fewer stray cats in the area. She believes the work is already making a difference, given that she has not received as many calls to have cats fixed this year than she has in recent years. Despite this, there’s still a high demand for the organization’s services, she said. And there will never be a surplus of money for all the spaying and neutering costs needed to serve a community. “If we made five million dollars tomorrow, there’d still be that need,” she said.

Brussels’ “Ommegang Festival” takes place next month

Stilt fighters in the show.

I attended last year’s Ommegang Festival, and I witnessed the spectacular procession and magnificent show from my very own reserved seat in Grand Place’s grandstand (especially erected for this event), and I soon discovered that this event brings to life, at least for a brief time, an intriguing, bygone historical era. It was fascinating to see all the incredible costumes—and I watched, spellbound, as the crossbowmen entered the square, along with the flag-bearers and the medieval representatives of the court, guilds, guards, and soldiers. Many of the costumed participants arrived by foot, while others came on horseback—and then the royal guests (including Charles V) arrived by horse and carriage— and took their seats in the viewing stand. They then watched the spectacle along with the rest of us, which included a great deal of music and frivolity and a mesmerizing display of flag waving, horsemanship, medieval games (including fencers and stilt fighters), dancing, flame throwing, and fireworks. It was quite the show and went on for about three hours. Along with the magnificence of the overall spectacle itself, I was particularly impressed by the young stilt fighters, who fought with one another during the games to try to be the last stilt fighter standing! The cobblestones were rather wet (as it had rained) and, therefore, slippery, but these courageous participants fought bravely on and received a great ovation from the appreciative crowd. There’s a cost to get one of the reserved seats in the

By John M. Smith

Lifestyles - The “Ommegang Festival” will be celebrated in Brussels, Belgium, from July 1 until 3 this summer. This annual colourful event, now part of the “Carolus V Festival,” is a re-enactment of the medieval celebration that honoured the coming of Charles V to Brussels in 1549. The main objectives of the original festival were to welcome Charles V and to show off, in a way, the grandeur and prosperity of the country at that time, and this tradition has been continued throughout the centuries. Today’s Ommegang Festival offers a kind of overview of Belgium’s culture, arts, and history. It’s quite a spectacle, with over a thousand 16th century costumed participants in a lavish parade that begins in Grand Sablon and ends up at Grand Place, followed by an elaborate display of pageantry that’s held right in this renowned square. Victor Hugo once described Brussels’ Grand Place as “the most beautiful square in Europe,” so it’s definitely a very appropriate setting for this special event. This square is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and it contains a variety of styles. The Town Hall (Hotel de Ville) is a Gothic masterpiece dating from the early 15th century, and its spire is topped by the Archangel St. Michael, the Patron Saint of Brussels. The Brussels City Museum, devoted to the history of Brussels, is also located on the square (in the King’s House on Grand Place), and it’s also well worth a visit to learn more about the history of both this city and this festival. I even found a Entering Coudenberg Palace, the former Palace of Brussels (now underground). nice restaurant at Grand Place that was appropriately named “Brasserie de l’Ommegang.”

These costumed participants are ready for the show to begin.

grandstand (from 37.50 euro to 77.50 euro), but anyone can stand along the parade route and watch it for free. Also, all are able to go to a free medieval village that’s set up in Place du Grand Sablon during this festival, to watch the ongoing tournament, including knights in combat on both foot and horse. One of the groups of crossbowmen that partake in the annual Ommegang Festival is the Saint Georges Crossbowmen of Brussels, and I learned more about this particular organization by visiting this club’s guildhall. It’s tucked away behind Place Royale, on the Impasse du Borgendael, and its cellar is filled with memorabilia and its shooting ranges. After all, this particular crossbow guild has been serving the city of Brussels since 1381, and weekly traditional crossbow shooting practices are still held here weekly. I discovered even more information about this particular festival by visiting the museum housed in Halle Gate, which was once a city gate, for it now contains works of art, masks and costumes connected to the Ommegang Festival. Yet another important connection with this festival is the former residence of Charles V in Brussels, Coudenburg Palace, located by Place Royale, and I actually visited the underground remains of this site and even dined down there. Our 16th century menu, especially designed to complement the Ommegang Festival, included stuffed apples with mincemeat, along with a great variety of other appropriate dishes concocted by the Centre for Historical Gastronomy. I simply strolled from table to table, in the underground archaeological digs, and sampled the foods that were offered while exploring the ruins themselves. Some historians believe the Ommegang Festival actually began as a religious ritual back in the 14th century, but it has celebrated the arrival of Emperor Charles V since 1549, and it’s still attracting tourists to Brussels today!

Family tree research unearths murder buried in the past

By Sue Dickens

Dan Buchanan, of Brighton, a computer consultant and genealogist, kept the members of the Trent Hills Probus Club spellbound as he told his tale of notorious murderer Dr. William Henry King, who, as he discovered, is a cousin who lived in the mid 1850s on the family farm north of Codrington where he grew up.

News - Campbellford - Researching his family tree, a local genealogist discovered a cousin who made front page news with a tale of intrigue and murder in the late 1850s. “The only person ever executed in Northumberland County was a cousin of mine … not only is he in my family tree but he lived on the family farm north of Codrington where I grew up.” Those are the words of Dan Buchanan of Brighton, who brought the facts of his discovery together for a presentation to the Trent Hills Probus Club. A computer consultant and self-proclaimed “geek” who enjoys research, his interest in genealogy is well documented online on his web site and information of his “notorious” murderous cousin can be found there. “I have the family trees of most of the families around Brighton from the earliest settlement and all of these stories have come out of that,” he explained. “You can pick your friends but not your relatives,” he told the audience as he began a one-hour PowerPoint show with a storyline of the events that led up to a public hanging of Dr. William Henry King, convicted of murdering his wife Sarah Ann Lawson, in 1859. “The story I uncovered is about the brutal murder of an innocent young woman,” he said as he provided details of the dastardly deed of long ago that he found buried in archival records. It was a story of how King studied for a degree from a homeopathic medical college and how he used his knowl-

trip that his mother-in-law decided to stop by his house and check the pockets of a coat he had left behind. She “found a likeness” [photograph] of Melinda there.” Suspicious of all that had happened leading up to Lawson’s death, her family eventually was able to get an autopsy done and the truth that Sarah had been poisoned with arsenic was made known. A jury of 12 men convicted Dr. King. “At the hanging 10,000 people crowded around to watch,” said storyteller Buchanan.

News - Quinte West - New cameras installed in OPP cruisers will be able to detect suspended drivers. “All the officers are trained on this new technology,” said Staff Sergeant Dave Tovell at the Police Services Board. There will be an Automated Licence Plate Recognition Program (ALPR) camera installed on the front and back of the cruiser. The scanned licence plates go into a software program that checks for anything wrong, such as a non-validated tag, suspended driver or unqualified driver. It sets off an alarm when the

OPP drives by the vehicle. The close up on the licence plate is verified with Ministry of Transportation of Ontario (MTO) and the driver is pulled over. “It’s a valuable tool,” Tovell said. He noted the camera can read up to two plates a second. The Quinte West detachment currently has one vehicle equipped with the cameras, added this past month. It will share the technology with the Prince Edward County OPP and Centre Hastings OPP detachments. “We are the host detachment,” Tovell added. “We are one of the first police de-

partments to have this on the road.” The OPP has added 27 ALPR equipped vehicles to its existing fleet. The OPP are the first police service in Ontario and one of the first in Canada to target suspended drivers with this program. “It will get people off the streets,” Tovell said. “These people should not be driving. It’s a great tool. Very impressive.” Dick Button asked if it could read a licence if the paint is peeling off. Tovell said it is impressive even with different angles how accurate it is.

A 7,000-word confession by Dr. King, which he wrote while in jail waiting for his hanging day, was unveiled later. The tale of the infamous Dr. King reappeared in the Cobourg Star in the 1970s and in the Brighton Independent in 1994. Buchanan is considering writing a book about the tale.

edge to give doses of arsenic to his pregnant wife, later adding opium and chloroform to the deadly mix. Flirtatious by nature, Dr. King’s fated trip to the gallows was sealed when he met “Melinda,” a friend of his wife’s. “She was beautiful, well educated, social and outgoing … the contrast between Melinda and Sarah was stark,” said Buchanan as he unravelled the mystery of the crime. Keeping his wife isolated from her family, it was only when Dr. King went away on a business

Will history repeat itself?

By Diane Sherman

News - Madoc - The Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Centre for Holocaust Studies is hoping they can “empower people to raise their voices and take action against hate to make the world a better place.” To fulfill that purpose, the Wiesenthal Centre (FSWC) invested in an innovative mobile “Tolerance Education Centre,” a multi-media theatre on wheels, able to bring educational programs to schools and communities beyond Toronto. The Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board has included the program as part of their history course. The big white tour bus boldly displays the title, Tour for Humanity, with large faces from diverse cultures emblazoned

on the sides, a vehicle meant to draw attention, seating 30 people a showing. The tour has been to Loyalist and Quinte secondary schools since it took to the road in 2013, and presented to community leaders, educators, and front-line workers on topics of diversity, democracy, responsibility and Canadian civic rights. Wednesday, May 13, it arrived at Centre Hastings Secondary School where class groups of Grade 11 and 12 students took turns viewing the 45- minute presentation facilitated by Laura Dantsis of the FSWC, and Sherri Browning, department head for Canadian and World Studies at CHSS. Browning says CHSS has a strong connection with the centre.

“Four years ago we partnered with FSWC. We can take courses and made a visit to the Toronto centre.” Browning says she took an intensive two-day program at the Los Angeles centre. Students are scheduled to attend the Toronto centre again September 23, Freedom Day, when they will hear Wab Kinew, aboriginal rights activist, rapper, media star and panelist for CBC’s Canada Reads choice awards. Gold medal hockey winner Meaghan Mikkelson, and Travis Price, co-founder of Pink Shirt Day (anti-hate movement) will also speak from their perspectives. The program, Dantsis explained, began through benefactors in support of Simon Wiesenthal’s movement to edu-

(Above and right) FSWC tour facilitator Laura Dantsis explained Canada is not exempt from crimes against humanity, making reference to First Nations and Japanese Canadians throughout history, the fight for gay rights and the current trend of cyber-bullying. Photo: Diane Sherman

Students sat quietly during the presentation, listening to sordid, historic, details of decisions made by Fathers of Confederation, commercial developers, war departments, religious factions and governing bodies across Canada. Response to questions was made gingerly on the sensitive topic. It was a time for reflection. Students across Canada, in Grades 11 and 12, may apply for an educational scholarship from FSWC designed to recognize those “who have demonstrated strong commitment to further Wiesenthal’s legacy of promoting tolerance, social justice and human rights.” For further information contact FSWC at <> or phone 416-864-9735.

News - The Belleville Association of the Deaf (B.A.D.) will be holding a fund raising event Saturday June 7th at the Metro store on North Front St. in Belleville. Washing cars and selling off slightly used items at a yard sale will be the focus for the day, with more to come in the near future!  The goal this time around is to up the ante and raise $1,500!   B.A.D. is working toward establishing a Belleville centre for the deaf, with the same focus as many other cultural centres in the area enjoy - a common meeting place where people of the same language and customs can get together. A lot more work will be needed to reach the ambitious goal, as the long term plans for this project will run around the $300,000 mark. If you would like to learn more about the deaf community, check out our website at ASL classes (American Sign Language) are routinely available through the Canadian Hearing Society, with an office at the Bayview Mall in Belleville.

cate about the slaughter of 11 million people under Hitler’s Nazi regime, six million of those killed were Jews. Wiesenthal was a survivor of the concentration camps. “Though the centre was started to educate people on the realities of the Holocaust, there are many cases of mass slaughter and cultural genocide. Most people don’t know Canada played a part. It’s not often given attention.” Scheduled for the day was “The Canadian Experience,” a slide show focusing on historical events, such as the history of Aboriginal Residential schools and treatment of Japanese Canadians during World War II. It also addresses the timely topic of cyber-bullying.

The Good Earth: Plant a row

Lifestyles - Each year, I resubmit the following article to try and encourage you to help out. I hope, someday, that the need for such a column will no longer exist. Unfortunately, the pressure to feed our friends and neighbours in the community continues to grow. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s growing season is off to a bit of a slower start as soil temperatures have just reached good values. This means a lot of you have recently finished or will soon start your veggie patch. Gentle Reader, I grew up on a farm. I was never hungry unless some youthful exuberance necessitated heading off to bed without supper. In my life, I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t remember going without food and I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t imagine what that would be like. We live in one of the most bounteous countries on this good earth and people, our neighbours, know what hunger is. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not right. A cynic might say that, truth be told, our flower gardens are merely affectations of the well-to-do. If this

seems harsh to read, especially in a gardening column, consider this: those of us who can spend time gardening have a.) stewardship of our own bit of this good earth; b.) the monetary resources to purchase the plants and tools needed; c.) the luxury of the time to do it; and d.) a lifestyle that allows for the time to even contemplate such a venture unencumbered by the daily need to merely provide for our families. â&#x20AC;¨By the standards of our society, we have worked hard to be able to do this and there should be no negative connotations assumed for doing so.â&#x20AC;¨However, there is a certain fragility about our comfort that needs to be acknowledged.â&#x20AC;¨We know too well that there are folks in our country, in our own communities, who do not enjoy such luxury. These people are not indigent bums who leach off of us. The majority are hard working, proud, valuable members of our community who are astonished to find themselves in such need. All it

takes is a factory closure or temporary shutdown to jeopardise many a familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s finances.â&#x20AC;¨â&#x20AC;¨Visit your local food bank, ask any social service agency about child poverty, talk to the Sally Ann about the desperate need some of our neighbours have to deal with every day. Ask them specifically about food. There is no excuse that allows people to go hungry in our land of plenty.â&#x20AC;¨â&#x20AC;¨There is a way to affect some tangible good with our gardens. It is so simple, grow some extra vegetables or fruits for donation. Plant a Row Grow a Row is a movement that began in the United States and has spread across North America. Folks are asked to set aside a patch of their own land specifically for other people. The produce is brought to a central collection place such as the food bank or a community run greenhouse or garden plots. Depending on the nature of the crop and the immediate need, the food is distributed where it can do the most good. In fact, by inquiring before

The Good Earth:

you plant in the spring, you can sow the veggies most needed even if it is broccoli or cauliflower (or the dreaded beet). â&#x20AC;¨â&#x20AC;¨In Canada, the â&#x20AC;&#x153;seedâ&#x20AC;? organisation is the Composting Council of Canada. They have all of the promotional material, planning guidelines and an amazing network of connections that you can access: <>. Anyone can initiate such a program but it takes the community to bring it to fruition.â&#x20AC;¨â&#x20AC;¨Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the beauty of it. All of the qualities that impart joy, contentment and relaxation to you through gardening will be realised with your participation in this campaign. You lose nothing and gain everything. Better yet, this will not detract or take away from any other initiatives; it will only augment them. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t actually have to be a part of any official organisation. You can do this on your own and, for those who are not fond of the spotlight, relatively anonymously. My suggestion is that you call your local food bank and ask

Dan Clost

them what you can grow, you might be surprised to learn that there is more to a food bank grocery list than root crops. As well, you may find yourself with a bounteous harvest of food with a short shelf life such as strawberries. Help out if you can, Gentle Reader. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all sustained by the same good earth; we just need to fine tune the distribution.

New date with a surprise venue for Westben annual fund raiser

Photo: Sue Dickens

Entertainment - Warkworth Imagine a hilltop garden where musicians are performing and artists are painting, where appetizers and refreshments are being served and the backdrop

is a million-dollar view. Stop imagining â&#x20AC;Ś itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all very real. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the setting of a major fund raiser for Westben Arts Festival Theatre, an event that is being given new life

Artisans and alpacas come together

News - Batawa - Local crafters and artisans arrive once more in Batawa during the annual Craft Fusion Sale & Showcase, scheduled for Saturday, June 7, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Batawa Community Centre. New this year, live alpacas will be visiting; theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re sure to keep the kids entertained while mom and dad browse the wide selection of items for sale. A live demonstration of alpaca fleece skirting will be offered for people to learn about what raw fleece looks like when it comes off the animals, and the process of transforming it into a finished product. Local alpaca fleece products will be on hand for sale. This is a â&#x20AC;&#x153;handmadeâ&#x20AC;? craft sale, which ensures that each item available will be unique and locally made. Everything from handmade jewellery to embroidery, woodwork to painted art will be showcased. Even the digital arts will be showcased by a vendor who turns your photographs, videos or digital images into digital film. A bake table and lunch counter will also be on hand for hungry patrons. Living Primal of Belleville will also be in attendance with their â&#x20AC;&#x153;Primal Crunchâ&#x20AC;? granolaâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a grain-free, gluten-free product that is produced and sold in Quinte Region as a healthy alternative to traditional breakfast cereal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We love supporting local artisans in Batawa and the larger community,â&#x20AC;? says Judi Clark, Community Development Co-ordinator of the Batawa Development Corporation, which organizes the twiceyearly event. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is a wide variety of crafts for sale this year from throughout the area, from Belleville to Colborne, and Trenton to Havelock. This event makes buying locally owned very easy.â&#x20AC;? Every visitor gets a passport that guides them through each vendor. After visiting each booth, they are eligible to win a gift basket that features an item from each vendor. Kids particularly like to receive a passport and go on their own treasure hunt for stamps at each booth. Batawa is a town steeped in history, and

with a bright future. It remembers how Canada welcomed the Bata Shoe Factory and its first workers in 1939. Many of those first factory employees, and Batawa residents, came to this country from

Czechoslovakia to start a new life in Canada. The majority became Canadian citizens and continued to improve their home by building a school, bank, and clearing the way for the Batawa Ski Club. Today,

the shoe factory is undergoing a transformation into condominiums as part of the Batawa Development Corporationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trailblazing work in sustainable community development.

They can be purchased at the Westben box office, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., now located in the recently renovated Clock Tower Cultural Centre,

36 Front Street South in Campbellford. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so wonderful to have that building just buzzing with arts and culture right in the heart of Campbellford,â&#x20AC;? said Bennett. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;Here Comes the Sun Galaâ&#x20AC;? fund raiser will take place on the summer solstice, June 21 from 2 to 4:30 p.m. A silent auction will also be held.

The location is a secret, revealed to ticket holders only when they buy their $65 (tax included) ticket. A supporter of Westben both as a business owner (with his partner Wayne Sabados) and personally, Graham expects the spring event will be a sellout. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want it to be a surprise â&#x20AC;Ś people wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be disappointed,â&#x20AC;? Graham said as he offered this writer a tour of the garden as a preview of the venue. Donna Bennett, Westben co-founder and advancement and marketing director, agrees. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The venue is a great way to be close to an artist as well as the musicians. It will be very intimate because you will be wandering the gardens and they will be right there,â&#x20AC;? she said.

with a change of venue and a change, moving from the traditional fall date to the spring. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Personally Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always had this thing about gardens and music and how beautiful they can be together,â&#x20AC;? said Neil Graham, vice-chair of the Westben board who is heading up the fund-raising committee this year. It was at his suggestion that the fall fund raiser of seasons past be moved to the start of the summerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s performances, an idea that gained momentum quickly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something I had been thinking about, because as much as the fall fund raiser is a great way to finish off the season, I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great to get people at the beginning of the festival season and get them excited about it,â&#x20AC;? Graham told the Trent Hills Independent. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And spring is such a lovely time of year when you can get people excited about the summer performances,â&#x20AC;? he added. There is another benefit to hosting the fund raiser in the spring. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In terms of fund raising, waiting until the end of the season to see how we are going to do financially, because thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when we have our biggest event â&#x20AC;Ś well there is a budget for fund raising and so

Mixed Doubles combines song, dance and comedy

Debbie Collins and Dean Hollin rehearse for upcoming performances of Mixed Doubles, which returns to the Stirling Festival Theatre next Thursday with some of entertainment’s most memorable duos. By Richard Turtle

Entertainment - Stirling - Debbie Collins and Dean Hollin have been bringing their acting talents to the Stirling Festival Theatre stage since shortly after the doors reopened, and the duo have returned to revive a show that was first performed here in 2001. Mixed Doubles, explains Hollin, is a tribute to some of entertainment’s most iconic duos and duets and is a blend of stage and screen history, music and comedy, with heavy emphasis on the comedy. “It was actually 13 years ago we started working on the show,” Hollin says, adding it grew out of their performances in the 2000 production of Swing, which featured, among other numbers, the pair’s rendition of You Has Jazz. There was a definite stage

chemistry between the pair, the actors say, and the show’s director, Caroline Smith, was one of many who took notice. “After that, Caroline said, ‘Let’s figure out something for you to do,’” Hollins says. “The idea was to look at the world’s greatest duos … and take a vaudeville approach.” So audiences can expect to see Fred and Ginger, Donnie and Marie, Archie and Edith, Sonny and Cher, Lucy and Ethel and a host of others. The show features familiar songs and comedy routines from the past that, he says, will undoubtedly appeal to all generations. There is even a brief appearance from Adam and Eve. And there is plenty of theatre magic as well, Hollin says, with the show centred around a giant trunk containing a seemingly endless supply of props and

costumes. And while the bulk of the material originated decades ago, it remains timeless and accessible to audiences today. So the inclusion of Abbot and Costello’s Who’s on First, Hollin says, was a no-brainer. And to bring the show back to Stirling where it first started, the performers say, is a treat. But there have been some script changes since the show was first staged and plenty of material was left by the wayside in development. Collins admits there was a lot to choose from when creating the show, and deciding what to leave out was just as difficult as deciding what to include. The original production, Hollin says, featured a scene originally involving Lucy announcing her pregnancy to Ricky but that was later replaced by the outrageous chocolate factory scene where Lucy and best friend Ethel struggle to keep up with an assembly line of desserts. Eventually, too, that scene was axed primarily because of the technical and logistical difficulties encountered during live performances, and there was a hole to fill. But Ethel and Lucy couldn’t be ignored, Hollin and Collins say, so another memorable scene has been adapted for the show. Exactly which one, they aren’t saying, but they are promising laughs. “You’ll have to come and see for yourself,” Hollin says. Following their two weeks in Stirling, Collins and Hollin will be destined for Orillia where the play is scheduled to run for five more weeks through June and July. Mixed Doubles opened last night in Stirling, with matinee and evening performances today (Thursday) returning

next week from June 12 to 14. Tickets Theatre box office or by calling 613are available at the Stirling Festival 395-2100.

Music and comedy are at the core of Mixed Doubles, featuring Dean Hollin and Debbie Collins. The show, which was first performed at the Stirling Festival Theatre in 2001, returned this week for a two-week run.

ParaSport Games a huge success in Northumberland

By John Campbell

Sports - Brighton - From start to finish, the 2014 Ontario ParaSport Games held across Northumberland County last weekend proved a winning combination for all concerned: organizers, athletes and volunteers. “It’s been from all reports a successful weekend,” Northumberland’s Director of Economic Development and Tourism Dan Borowec said Sunday morning, while the handcycling race was in progress. “The weather has been on our side, attendance at the various events has been pretty good … [and the county received] really, really good, positive comments from the athletes about Northumberland,” he said. “It’s been a great event.” About 300 of them showed up to take part in four national training camps or to vie for medals in one of the eight parasport competitions: handcycling, wheelchair basketball, wheelchair rugby, amputee golf, blind golf, sledge hockey, para-equestrian, and boccia. “It’s been well worth doing,” Borowec said of the county’s efforts to host the games, which started taking shape two years ago and involved the training of 250 volunteers for the three-day event. The games entrants, with varying degrees of disabilities ranging from blindness to loss of use of limbs, gained public recognition for their athleticism and competitiveness, and the county, in turn, raised its profile among them, Borowec said.

Just Teeth

SAVE $1.00


Our ability to eat and chew different types of food is dependent on a whole system of events that breaks down food into pieces that we can swallow. It involves much more than just our teeth. One of the most important aspects of our chewing system is our jaw joint, more specifically the temporomandibular joint. For simplicity sake, let’s refer to this joint as the TM joint. When people experience problems with their TM joint, the condition is known as temporomandibular dysfunction or TMD. Here are some of the signs and symptoms of TMD: 1. Clicking sounds from joint during opening and closing

2. Pain during opening or closing or while eating 3. Locking of jaw joint

4. Grinding or clenching habits

5. Limited opening of the mouth 6. Headaches 7. Pain in the shoulder and back To determine whether you have TMD and what types of treatment would be appropriate for you, it is important that you see your dentist for a thorough examination of your jaw joint. Your dentist can also take various radiographs (x-rays) and examine your occlusion or bite, in order to help determine the cause of your TMD. Once a diagnosis of TMD has been established, treatment can begin. Here are some treatment options for patients with TMD: 1. Oral appliance therapy (oral orthotics) 2. Bite adjustment or alteration 3. Medications 4. Surgery Because TMD can be such a debilitating condition that affects so many aspects of daily life especially eating and sleeping, it is important that you visit your dentist to determine if you have TMD and to find out what treatment options are appropriate for you.

Brighton Mayor Mark Walas prepares to give the signal to start the handcycling race held in Brighton last Sunday morning. Photo: John Campbell

Officials with the national camps—sitting volleyball, parasoccer, paracycling and paratriathalon—“started talking to us” about holding their camps here each year “because of the facilities and the reception they received,” he said. “Our next step is, having established relationships with some of the heads of the various parasport organizations, to start that dialogue and see what we can do on an ongoing basis.” The handcycling race was held in Brighton Sunday morning with the start and finish line outside the front entrance of East Northumberland Secondary School. The course out into the countryside was slightly more than ten kilometres long and racers went around it two or three times depending on their category. The time trials were held a day earlier at Colborne. The games got under way during the day May 30 but the official ceremony took place that night at the Cobourg Community Centre with a performance The 2014 Ontario ParaSport Games held in Northumberland County last weekend included a handcycling race in Brighton, with by Alan Frew of Canadian rock band 17 athletes with varying degrees of disability taking part.

Pull for Kids event should be a busload of fun

By Stephen Petrick

News - Belleville - Why on Earth would anyone want to pull a 13-tonne object? Well, to raise money for asthma research, to support The Lung Association and the kids it helps, and to have a busload of good fun, that’s why. Participants and supporters for the

upcoming Pull for Kids event gathered at Montana’s last Tuesday for a captain’s rally. The rally was a chance for teams to meet and mingle and ask questions, leading up to the event on Saturday, June 14. The event takes place in the parking lot of Best Buy, at 202 Bell Boulevard. Registration begins at 9:30 a.m. and the opening ceremonies start at 10:45 a.m. The pulls begin at 11 a.m. and should continue up to the end of the finals at around 1:30 p.m. It’s a fun, but not exactly easy event. The Pull for Kids matches teams against each other to see who can pull a large coach bus 100 feet in the least amount of time. Teams may consist of eight men or 12 women. Co-ed teams consist of ten people. So what’s the

secret to completing such a demanding challenge? “Ignore the pain, just go with everything you got,” said Shawn Waite, a member of the three-time champion Property Guys team. Waite, was at the captain’s rally Tuesday, because he and his teammates have signed up for an attempt to defend their title. But winning the event isn’t the most important thing, he said. “It’s mainly for the fun and to support the kids,” he said, when asked why his team keeps coming out; this will be the Property Guys team’s fifth time in the competition. “It’s a great day and we love pulling around a 13-tonne bus.” Lola McMurter, a special events co-ordinator for the Hastings-Prince Edward chapter of The Lung Association, said this marks the tenth year the event will be held in Belleville. Many other Lung Association chapters have stopped holding the event, but this one has continued thanks to the support it has received here. The event has raised $195,000 over the last nine years and organizers hope to top $10,000 this year. They also hope this year’s event will bring out a few dads, because it’s Father’s Day weekend.

Although the event is titled Pull for Kids, it’s also very much an event for adults, McMurter noted. While many people associate asthma as a breathing condition that affects children, one in ten adults over age 40 suffer from asthma, she said. However, it often goes undetected. “Most people put it off as something else, when in fact it’s asthma.” Nonetheless, research and support for asthma sufferers is needed, especially children who, generally, do not have the opportunity to participate in sports, if their asthma is not treated. “Experts say if asthma is controlled they can participate in sports,” said McMurter. “They don’t have to sit on the sidelines.” Several teams had representatives at the captain’s rally Tuesday, but there’s still time for new teams to register. They can do so by visiting <www.> or contacting McMurter at 613-969-0323 or <lmcmurter@>.

A professional can steal a car in just 30 seconds so that’s why Laura Vickers of Trent Hills Community Policing walked the streets of Warkworth during the recent Lilac Festival weekend with Northumberland OPP Auxiliary Constable Peter Brown, left, and Auxiliary Constable Zachary Curtin, leaving “tickets” on the windshield of vehicles to let the owners know if the officers found it locked or unlocked (with keys in view), windows open or valuables in plain sight. It is all part of their ongoing educational crime prevention program in the communities of Trent Hills. The trio had also been to Hastings. “The good news is 95 per cent of the vehicles have been locked,” said Vickers. Photo: Sue Dickens

S. in 1918 to Gladys (Reed) Hood and Thomas Lindsay Hood, she was raised in Nova Scotia, but spent the last 60 years in Ontario in the Trenton Brighton area.

Hicks, George Morton Peacefully in Cobourg, Ontario on May 15, 2014. Born in Toronto on June 21, 1921, beloved son of the late Louisa & David John Hicks, he was the oldest of seven children, the late Cecil, David, Bill, Helen and Fred, and survived by sister Eileen of Calgary. Dear husband of the late Hazel Gertrude (nee Hunt), loving father of Allan Hicks & Diane Fagan, Grandfather of Adam Fagan & Ashley Fagan (Garth Robichaud), and adored great Grandpa of Hayley Lin (2 ½) and Peyton Diane (5 months). “Number One” Father In Law to Allan Fagan. George joined The Imperial Life as a member of the Printing Unit after graduation from Danforth Technical School. In 1940, he enlisted in the R.C.N.V.R., where, in the next 5 years, he would see plenty of action. George’s first ship was the Royal Navy cruiser Voltaire on convoy duty. Subsequently, he served on the corvettes Pictou, Calgary and Alberni and finally on the frigate Charlottetown. While on the Alberni he was in on the invasion of North Africa. George was lucky, in that he just got off ships in time, since three of the five he served on were eventually sunk or damaged by enemy action. George returned to The Imperial Life in 1945 when the war ended, rejoining the Printing Unit, where he ultimately was appointed Printing and Purchasing Manager. Over the years, George enjoyed his summers with the family at the cottage in Brighton, Ontario, and winters with Hazel in Punta Gorda, Florida. His later years were spent in Cobourg, Ontario. He spent many an afternoon playing some intense cribbage matches with Jimmy Baker, where he ultimately won... one way or another. Many thanks to the staff at Legion Village, Cobourg, Ontario, Northumberland Hills Hospital staff, and Dr. Kirk Haunts. The family is asking that donations be made in George’s memory to the Canadian Diabetes Association. A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.

Eleven performers, including both the guitar class and guitar club, took the stage before a full house.

“One summer day, in 2011, friends Jenn K, Lori and Jen P sat around in the backyard, watching their boys all playing, talking about their Relay for Life team for 2012. But that team was never meant to be. In April 2012, Lori’s life was turned upside down when she found out that she had leukemia. Lori never gave up the fight, but on May 19th 2013, her body did.

Jenn Kilsdonk, Lori Cormier and Jen Peacock

“Now, its our turn to not give up. Last year, a couple weeks before Relay, Jenn & I threw together a team in her memory and raised over $1600. This year, our goal is to double that!!”
