EMC Entertainment - Trenton The Big Band Festival was a sip of sunshine in the park with excellent orchestras, dancers, wine and fine art for entertainment. “We enlarged the festival from last year,” said organizer Bob Wannamaker on stage at the amphitheatre on Sunday afternoon. “We brought in some antique cars, some artists from Arts Quinte West and Huff Estates winery. Thanks to the community for their support.” He noted that the Quinte area has some fine musicians such as Brian Barlow, the Commodores Orchestra, Blair Yarranton and orchestra leader Andy Sparling. “One of my pet things is music,” he said with a smile. “Enjoy!” The Commodores Orchestra has been around the Quinte area in some form since 1928 and kicked off the show with the big band sounds. The first piece was in memory of Peter Appleyard who died just a few days previously at the age of 84. He had headlined the festival, but organizers had already made a substitute when he had called five weeks ago with a bad back. In his place was the Ross Wooldridge band with Galaxy. Other performances included John McLeod and the Rex Hotel Orchestra and Rhythm Dynamix Dance. Organizer Colleen Vickers said the event was a big part of the weekend festivities adding to Downtown Trenton’s Festival on the Bay. A concert downtown on Saturday afternoon actually attracted more people to the show, although the majority of ticket takers were from out of town. “We encouraged people to get up and dance and a lot of them did,” she said. Visitors sat in big white tents all around the stage or set up their own umbrellas on the hill. The air was festive and it was a perfect way to celebrate the music of summer. “We added one tent from last year,” Vickers noted. “It’s nice to have a shady place out of the sun.”

Neighbours unhappy with early gravel pit noise

EMC News - Quinte West Representatives from the gravel pit expansion in Sidney Ward attended the recent Planning Advisory Committee to make sure their rezoning was approved.

“The Aggregate Resource Act is in the process with the MNR,” said Amarjit Sandhu, consultant with MHBC Planning. He was accompanied by contractor Scott Scaletta and the property owner’s son Brian Galloway.

Area planner Scott Pordham noted there are no appeal rights for the aggregate zone. The application by Suzanne Smith at 1582 Fish and Game Club Road for a 12.6-acre (5.1-hectare) expansion to the

EMC Events - The Ameliasburgh Ward 4, Recreation Committee working together with (CARA) the Consecon and Area Ratepayers Association Inc. are delighted to inform you that we will be holding our second annual Soap Box Derby. This, the midday feature event of the Consecon Community Day festivities, will happen Saturday, August 3, on the Mill Street hill in Consecon at 1 p.m. Registration will take place at the intersection of Consecon Main and County Road 29 beginning at 12 noon. The Soap Box Derby is open to both girls and boys ages five through 12; there are no registration fees required to take part. Competitors are grouped into three separate age categories, five- and six-year-olds, seven through nine years, and ten through 12 years. Competitors will make individual runs down the hill for best times, (not racing against each other head to head). Fastest overall time in each category will determine the age group winner. Helmets are mandatory for all competitors and all soap box cars must have a braking mechanism installed, otherwise the cars will be considered ineligible to compete in the event. We have free design plans available for anyone wishing to build their own soap box car, but even if a child doesn’t have their own car they can still be involved as we will have extra soap box cars available for any child wishing to take part in the event. All safety precautions will be in place and St. John Ambulance will be in attendance during the event. Following the children’s event we’ll hold a seniors run for anyone 13 years or older who love to have an opportunity to see how they stack up against the kids. The same safety precautions apply. For design plans or more information call Bill at 613-394-9914, or <bmcmahon@bellnet.ca>.

New interim CAO named for the city

Brian Jardine (l) and Charlie Murphy at a recent Planning Advisory Committee meeting at city hall. Photo: Kate Everson By Kate Everson

EMC News - Quinte West Replacing CAO Gary Dyke on August 6 is Charlie Murphy, Director of Planning and Development Services. “I am excited about the opportunity to become the interim CAO for the City of Quinte West,” Murphy says.

“The city has an excellent team working together for the best interests of the city,” he added. “There has been so much progress made in the city and I want to be able to continue working towards making further advancements in the new role as CAO.” Murphy said, “We have an

excellent council, great senior staff team and dedicated and committed staff. “Gary has done an excellent job as CAO which will make my transition much easier,” he said. Murphy was born and raised in Sault Ste. Marie, and has a Bachelor of Environment Studies - Urban and Regional Development from the University of Waterloo, Masters of Science - Rural Planning from the University of Guelph, several continuing education courses (i.e. municipal law, accounting). He worked on contract with the City of Trenton for nine months, then worked for the City of Guelph for a year and then was hired as City Planner for Trenton in 1987. He took over economic development duties in addition to the Planning duties for Trenton in 1994. Murphy has been Director of Planning and Development Services for Quinte West since amalgamation in 1998. He is married with three children and lives in the Trenton Ward. He noted this is an interim position which he hopes will work into a permanent one. Replacing him as

interim Director of Planning and Development is Brian Jardine. Jardine is currently manager of planning services. Originally from Glasgow, Scotland, Jardine started work in the field of planning in 1982. He came to the City of Quinte West from the City of Ottawa in 2005.

“I was happy to accept the position of interim director upon Charlie Murphy’s promotion to CAO, and appreciate the support and faith that council are putting in me,” Jardine says. “The strength of the department has always been our ability to deliver an efficient and effective

planning service to council and the residents of Quinte West, and that will continue to be our focus. Working closely with our partner departments we will continue to refine and improve our processes to enable quality and sensitive development within the municipality.”

Machinery noise one man’s wake-up call rewrite the bylaws? It says 7 a.m.” Charlie Murphy, director of planning, said the noise bylaw is in effect from 7 p.m. to the following day at 7 a.m. “It varies according to the

business,” Murphy added. “There are provisions for specific exceptions such as requiring an earlier start which can be considered.” The rezoning application will go for council approval on August 12.

“Will there be gravel out below the water line?” Glen Brown asked. Sandhu answered, “No, it will be 1.5 metres above the water line.” Brown asked if the hours of operation would start at 7 a.m. as in the bylaw or would they continue starting at 5:30 a.m. “It’s ongoing,” Brown said. “I get a wake-up call at 5:30 when the pit starts up.” Pordham said this issue was raised earlier. “The bylaw restricts start-up times to 7 a.m.,” he said. “The MNR has been made aware.” Brown said he called Scaletta about it, but wanted to know if he should call city hall instead. Pordham said he could continue to call Scaletta but also the city bylaw officers to deal with it. Brown wanted to know if there would be a berm placed on the south side of the pit for noise reduction. Sandhu said, yes, the south side would be bermed. Brown noted there was a traffic problem at the section of Fly Boy Road and Fish and Game Club Road. “It is an unsafe intersection,” he said. “It’s a blind corner with a 45 degree incline in the middle of an S turn.” Jim Harrison asked him how many years he has lived there. Brown said it was eight years. “I have witnessed near misses with a car and a dump truck,” Brown said. “It’s unsafe and the city knows it.” Harrison said the city is fixing Harrington Road which had an S turn on it since the 1800s. “I hope it doesn’t take that long to fix this one,” Brown said. “Somebody is going to get run over by a dump truck.” Chair Ron Hamilton said they will take a look at it. Brown added that the Traffic Committee got some trees knocked down but the weeds are so high you can’t see. “There will be increased truck traffic,” he noted. “It’s important to look at this.” Harrison asked about the noise bylaw. “There are both sides to this,” he said. “This is the construction business. If you cut the length of time, you have to be realistic.” Brown asked, “Are we going to

New building for health unit approved

EMC News - Belleville The Hastings Price Edward Counties Health Unit voted 10 - 2 in a recorded vote on Thursday, July 18, to move ahead to the tender stage for a new, roughly $13-million building to replace their aging facility at 179 North Park Street in Belleville, however, the controversy may not end there. Quinte West Councillor Paul Kyte,

who was one of two board members to vote against moving to the tender stage, said he has filed a complaint with the Ontario Ombudsman’s office to investigate why a board session discussing cost estimates for the building that same day was closed to the public. “My concern is that they had an in-camera meeting to discuss proceeding with the building … they were

providing the board with estimates for the new building,” Kyte said. “I think it should have been transparent to the public. There’s enough questions already squirming around this building … I just think it brought more of a cloud over the issue by going behind closed doors, and I thought the meeting was inappropriate.” Much of the discussion during the meetings on July 18 centred around the recently offered opinion of local developer Peter Kempenaar, that the health unit could simply be renovated for roughly $7 million as opposed to building a brand new facility for significantly more. Medical officer of health Dr. Richard Schabas struck back at Kempenaar during the July 18 meeting, pointing out issues including seemingly double counted numbers and missing design elements from Kempenaar’s plan. “Fundamentally, the proposal [Kempanaar] put forward … missed out on a number of key elements of cost that are unavoidable, things like our project management costs and things related to the sewer issues,” Schabas said. “Basically there was about $3 million in things that just weren’t in his calculation that needed to be there.” Roughly $1 million has already been spent on project management and architect work, funds that cannot be reclaimed, yet had been counted as savings from the total cost of the building by Kempenaar. Schabas also said that Kempenaar had disregarded known issues such as a need for expanded parking, sewer problems on North Park Street, and the need for a new generator. “He presented a business plan that

was just fundamentally wrong,” Schabas said. “Unfortunately there were some mathematical errors in that and it grossly overstated the financial benefit of what he was promoting.” Belleville city Councillor Jack Miller joined Kyte as the lone opposition to moving ahead to the tender stage for the new facility. Kyte said that ideally he would have like to have seen the opinion

The board will vote on submitted bids in September.

of an additional architect considered before moving forward, but Schabas said delaying the project would cost them roughly $500,000 and add an additional six months to the project. The building moves to the tender stage this week, with bids expected in late August. “I really think that we should have maybe had another opinion come in, take a look at it, take a long hard

for visitors in Belleville and the Quinte region. It is also intended to promote the city and region as a great place to visit and vacation. “This Visitor Kiosk provides us with an excellent opportunity to let our visitors know about all of the wonderful things that our community has to offer,” said Mayor Neil Ellis. “We have so many world-class amenities, events and services in our region and it’s important that we take advantage of opportunities like this to share them with people that are visiting this area. We appreciate the support of the Belleville Chamber of Commerce and the generous donation of space from the Quinte Mall which has brought this project to life.” The Visitor Kiosk was developed as part of the Visitor Services Contract the Belleville and District Chamber of Commerce has with the City of Belleville and will complement this busy gateway to our city. The chamber has worked with city staff and representatives of the Quinte Mall to develop this kiosk. The kiosk features beautiful images of the city and region and information on what there is to see and do in Belleville. “This new Visitor Kiosk is a welcome addition to our tourism information strategy,” said Bill Saunders, CEO of the Belleville and District Chamber of Commerce, which also operates the tourism information booth at the Log Cabin on Moira Street. “We have been searching for an additional location close to the 401 and we believe this Quinte Mall kiosk will serve those visitors coming directly off the highway.” Space for this kiosk was generously donated by the Quinte Mall to help support tourism in the region. The Belleville and District Chamber of Commerce will staff the kiosk weekdays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. during the summer.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Nuclear energy is the second cheapest option Dear Editor, The July 11 edition of the Central Hastings News carried another letter to the editor purporting to reveal the real cost of nuclear power, but like so many such tales, it only delivers half the story. Yes, nuclear is expensive to build and to de-commission, but what is the Return On Investment (ROI)? Now those kinds of financial dealings are out of my area of

expertise, but nuclear power is the cheapest energy source after water power when you examine the cost per kWh. If Ontario had relied only on out-of-province sources, we would have paid top dollar for imported energy, and ended up with nothing in the way of energy sources to support, in time of need, the North American Power Grid from which one of your readers would have us purchase our

energy supplies. The suggestion was made that Quebec hydraulic sources could provide cheap and clean power, and that has been considered for years. The underlying problem has always been one of system stability. Any attempts to tie in with the Quebec grid have resulted in power swings or oscillations that have severed the connections. The long power lines required would also be a massive undertaking, and their extreme length would leave them vulnerable to the impact of solar flares. Connections to Hydro Quebec in the past were always via dedicated feeds from dedicated sources that were unsupported by additional generation that is part of the Quebec grid. That means if Quebec were to have a sudden need for power, and the feeds to Ontario were supplying our load, Quebec would have no quick access to those Ontario-dedicated energy sources. Those problems have been somewhat reduced with today’s equipment, but it requires expensive AC to DC then back to AC conversion stations to block the instability problems. Such inverter

stations must also be constructed to operate in both directions in order to support Quebec in their time of need. Then we must consider the energy needs of Quebec itself. Their energy sources offer them the opportunity to industrialize on a vast scale that would exceed Ontario’s heyday of water power development by Sir Adam Beck. I’m not so sure they would want to commit to long-term, inexpensive supplies to Ontario when that energy might be required at home. Further, Ontario is not the only energy-hungry neighbour that is looking to Quebec for energy supply. Power-hungry New York City and the New England States are ready to buy whatever becomes available. This means the highest bidder will win that battle, and victory won’t come cheap. Those Quebec hydraulic sources might not always be available to us or even the people of Quebec. Hitching ourselves to the Quebec energy wagon could prove very costly in the long run. Some few years ago I was privy to a report that suggested some models of

global warming had indicated a serious, future reduction of rainfall over both Quebec and Labrador. No rain equals reduced river flow, and with that comes a lower energy output. That’s not something we should pin our hopes on. The question of nuclear safety is a valid one, but the comparisons with other accidents are not valid. Ontario is not located on geological fault lines such as those of the Pacific Rim, and specifically Japan. The CANDU reactor design is one of the world’s safest. In fact it’s so safe that some years ago I was told by an American nuclear physicist that such a reactor could not possibly function. To this day I’m not sure if he believed my description of how the CANDU does operate. Finally we must deal with the subject of so-called “green” power. One letter writer claimed that nuclear is heavily subsidized, but paying home-based micro-FIT solar projects about 80 cents per kWh, and commercial solar and wind projects about 40 cents per kWh is a very large subsidy when compared with nuclear’s five or six

cents per kWh. And the elephant in the room that is never mentioned by anyone is the fact that every Watt of wind or solar energy MUST be backed up with some form of real generation. Therefore we must build rapid-start power plants, probably gas-fired, to replace solar power at night or when it’s cloudy, and for days when the wind doesn’t blow. These plants would then sit idle while the wind/solar supply is working, only to jump into action when the notoriously unreliable “green” sources fail. Nobody ever considers that extra cost of “green” power. Nor is the fact that we actually pay adjacent utilities such as Con-Ed or PASNY to take our surplus “green” energy. How’s that for added and hidden cost! Now for those out there that have got the idea into their heads that I work for Ontario Power Generation, I don’t. I do not now, nor have I ever been employed by OPG. I have spent 35 years in the electronics and energy industry, but none of that was with OPG.

Dear Editor, In his recent informative letter to Central Hastings News, Mr. Wilson of Stirling concluded that, “We and the bees are in trouble.” Indeed, the very foundation of farming communities everywhere is certainly in peril if bees and beepollination disappear. I urge your readers to take a walk in a flower garden or along a country road in Hastings County and see if they can spot a honeybee; or a bumblebee; or a bee of any kind. Chances are they will discover that the milkweeds and clover blossoms, which are usually buzzing with bee activity, are characterized by the eerie, deathlike silence that surrounded the apple trees and lilacs in the spring. There is overwhelming evidence that a group of systemic insecticides named neonicotinoids— chemically related to nicotine— are contributing to beehive contamination, bee mortality, and unprecedented population declines. Both the manufacturers and government regulatory agencies are well aware of the toxicity of these chemicals. For example, the systemic insecticide “ADMIRE” has been used in Canada for over ten years to control insect pests on over 40 fruit and vegetable crops. The

manufacturer’s product labelling for ADMIRE, as well as its Material Safety Data Sheet (a mandatory document under Health Canada’s Hazardous Products Act), state that ADMIRE is “highly toxic to bees,” “extremely toxic to aquatic invertebrates,” and “toxic to birds.” The manufacturer’s remedy to “protect” bees from the toxicity of ADMIRE is to caution users, on the product labelling, that the insecticide is not to be used on flowering crops or weeds if bees are visiting the treatment area (emphasis mine). What a noble remedy. Direct exposure, however, is only the tip of the iceberg. ADMIRE and other “systemic” insecticides are chemically designed to maximize effectiveness, so they have a very insidious side. As the name suggests, once they are applied to crops, seeds or to the soil, the insecticides infiltrate a plant’s systems and are transported to its leaves, flowers, nectar and pollen. In this manner, the insecticides persist for days, weeks, and even months. Accordingly, in treated fields and orchards, bees are indirectly exposed to these insecticides throughout a growing season and at all stages of development in the hive—whether or not bees are present in a crop at

the time of application. According to the Ontario Beekeepers’ Association web site, scientific research has shown that “there is no safe level of exposure for honey bees: even very small quantities of neonicotinoids affect pollinator species.” The association is working hard to minimize environmental risks to bees and to prevent a recurrence of the incidents of 2012, which involved the acute and chronic poisoning of honey bees by neonicotinoid insecticides in many parts of agricultural Ontario. In this confusing world of corporate spin, political propaganda, and other expressions of bovine dung, it is often hard to know what to believe and whom to trust. In Europe, where bees are also disappearing at alarming rates, the pesticide industry continues its policy of denial. One leading manufacturer recently stated in a press release that “a decision in Europe to restrict use of neonicotinoid-containing products would not improve bee health.” That’s quite a statement, isn’t it? The company’s own documents filed with Health Canada’s Hazardous Products reveal that two of its neonicotinoid-based insecticides (ADMIRE and CONCEPT) are “highly toxic to

bees.” Common sense and my scientific training tell me that this type of corporate logic is seriously flawed. Finally, is it only me, or is anyone else offended by the marketing of a systemic insecticide under such a benign name? In my opinion, “Admire” is an appropriate name for a cuddly teddy bear, not a lethal insecticide. Teddy bears I do trust. During the 1960s and 1970s, we almost lost for all time the continental populations of bald eagle and peregrine falcon. Governments listened to the scientific community and banned the use of DDT. Eagle and falcon populations are recovering. Will governments listen and respond this time to safeguard bees, songbirds and our family farms? I urge your readers to sign the on-line petition <www.ontariobee.com> to ban neonicotinoid-based pesticides in Ontario. Can our children and grandchildren survive in a world without bees? I am sorry, I don’t have an answer for you. But I can pose an equally relevant question: How on Earth could we let that happen? Sincerely, Robert Ferguson, M.Sc., R.P.Bio. (Ret.) Marmora

How can we let this happen?

Sixty-year reunion coming up

6 Quinte West EMC - Thursday, July 25, 2013

Dear Editor, Although most readers may think 2014 is a long way ahead, the 1954-1955 Campbellford High School Grade 9 class is already planning a summer reunion for next year, to mark 60 years since we attended. A three-day weekend is being planned for August 1-3, 2014. Since 60 years have passed, we realize some students have moved several times or

have changed their names. If you attended or know the postal or e-mail address of any person who attended the 1954-1955 Grade 9 class and wishes to attend the reunion, please contact me at P.O. Box 1536, Campbellford, Ontario, K0L 1L0. Further information will be forwarded to interested persons at a later date. Bonnie Snarr, 1954-1955 Reunion Committee


OPINION EMC Editorial As it happens, I was in Detroit this month. I went to see the art and the architecture, domains in which Detroit is still one of the richest cities in the United States. It’s broken, and it’s Gwynne Dyer broke, and now it’s officially bankrupt too. But bankruptcy is actually a device for escaping from unpayable debt. All over the world, Detroit’s bankruptcy is being used as an excuse to pore over what’s sometimes called “ruin porn”: pictures of the rotting, empty houses that still stand and the proud skyscrapers that have already been torn down. There’s even a self-guided tour of “the ruins of Detroit” available on the Internet: people take a melancholy pleasure in contemplating the calamitous fall of a once-great city. Two-thirds of Detroit’s population have fled in the past fifty years, but there were specific reasons why Detroit fell into decline, and there are also reasons to believe that it could flourish again— not as a major manufacturing centre, perhaps, but “major manufacturing centres” probably don’t have a bright long-term future anywhere. There are other ways to flourish, and Detroit has some valuable resources. The events that triggered the city’s decline are well known. Large numbers of African-Americans from the southern states migrated to Detroit to meet the demand for factory workers during and after World War II. Being mostly unskilled, they started in the worst jobs—and even after they had acquired the skills, they stayed in low-paying jobs because of racial prejudice. Spurned by the unions and victimised by a racist police force, they eventually

Connected to your community

Motor City rioted in the summer of 1967. Brutal policing made matters worse and hundreds were killed, but the worst consequence was the fear that the violence engendered. The great majority of the whites just left town. I first went to Detroit a couple of months after the riots, and driving into the city the fear was actually visible. The traffic lights are spaced far apart on Woodward Avenue, and as each light turned green all the cars would accelerate away—and then, if the next light was still red, they would slow more and more until they were barely crawling, but they dared not stop for fear of being attacked. Then, finally, the light would turn green, and they would race away through the intersection—only to go through the whole process again as they approached the next light. It was this unreasoning fear that caused the massive “white flight” to the suburbs and the hollowing out of Detroit. The big automobile companies also took fright, and the new car plants were built elsewhere. As the jobs disappeared and the population dropped, the tax base fell even faster, for most of the people left behind in the city were poor or unemployed African-Americans. The city could no longer afford to provide good police or medical services, so even more people left. This vicious circle has lasted half a century, exacerbated by much corruption and maladministration. This month’s declaration of bankruptcy is a brutal measure, for much of the debt being repudiated is the pensions of city employees, but it may give the city’s government enough leeway to begin rebuilding public services. If they are restored, much else could follow. Let me explain what brought me to Detroit early this month. We were doing what we dubbed the “Rust Belt Art and Architecture Tour”: driving from Buffalo

Not for the queasy to Cleveland and then to Detroit, ending up in Chicago. All these cities took a terrible beating as the industries they were built on died or moved overseas (except Chicago, which is “too big to fail”). But three generations ago, when they were the industrial heartland of the United States, they were very rich—at just the right time. The first decades of the 20th century were the heyday of art deco, the most beautiful architectural style of the modern era. That was also the period when newly rich captains of industry could scoop up bucket-loads of new European and American art: impressionist, expressionist, abstract, the lot—and they lived mostly in what are now the Rust Belt cities. So they put up dozens of art deco towers: the Guaranty Building in downtown Detroit is my candidate for the world’s most beautiful office building. They filled their homes with best of modern art—and, in the end, donated most of it to the local art galleries. Even in Detroit, where so much has been lost, more than half of those buildings are still there. So is all of the art. Other cities would kill for these assets. In a post-industrial economy where people have more choice about where they live, they are assets that can actually attract population—especially since, in Detroit’s case, the people who left didn’t go far. Most of them are still out there in the suburbs that surround Detroit. The city of Detroit’s population has fallen from 2 million to 700,000 over the past 50 years, but the metropolitan area’s population has stayed stable at around four and a half million for all of that time. The job, really, is to bridge the devastated middle ring of low-income Detroit housing and reconnect the outer suburbs with the city centre. Detroit can rise again. It just takes the right strategy.

power grid. During the course of the negotiations, we agreed to let them take the 18 century-old trees down. In return they agreed to completely clean up everything including the stumps. They also agreed to replant 18 smaller 15-foot trees back onto the property. We really miss our big trees, but in the long run we have our privacy back and there will be less maintenance for both Hydro One and my family. The real point to this letter is, that during the whole process both Rob and Bo (Hydro One) treated us with the utmost respect and care. Not only

that, but their subcontractors who did the actual cleanup work, Tom, Fran and Christa from Kawartha Utilities (along with their crew) were amazing. Finally, I have to thank Frank and Ursula from Leo Landscaping (and their crew) for not only how they worked but the care they took planting these very big trees. It has been an eye-opening experience working with people who showed true conscience, dedication, and kindness. Thank you to all the people who helped us make this a wonderful and smooth transition. Respectfully, Ralph Blom, Brighton

EMC Editorial - As I’ve often said, working at a newspaper isn’t really like other jobs. Those of us silly enough to choose this profession are a quirky bunch to say the least. So when people sometimes ask, as one did this past week while I was getting my hair cut, where the inspiration comes from to fill this space, the answer often lies in some conversation we’ve had in the office. We aren’t by any means as politically correct as one might think from reading the paper. Far from it. I don’t remember how the conversation started but somehow we got on the subject of things that ended up in our mouths by mistake. Now everyone has a story or two about sucking in a blackfly or ten at the height of blackfly season. That’s almost a gimme. If you spend any time outdoors and consider breathing a necessity of life, you will no doubt inhale a blackfly which will then become lodged in your windpipe, usually just before you’re about to deliver the funniest punch line in the history of the world after spinning a yarn for three or four minutes.  After coughing and gagging for a minute or two, the blackfly will then become dislodged and you’ll chase it around your mouth with your tongue until finally getting it lined up to spit out. The down side of the experience is, there will be no way to recap your story and deliver your punch line. The plus side … your antics and subsequent humiliation will be funnier than anything you could have said. In my case, my office story related to stopping at the cheese factory on my way home from work last Friday. I’ve long since figured out that those two paper strips on the plastic closure of a bag of curd were meant to be pulled in opposite directions to open the bag. Mrs. Bush didn’t raise any dummies. Unfortunately, the bag I purchased only had one so I was forced to pull the whole contraption to the top of the bag to get in. No worries; that first piece of delectable saltiness had reached my lips before I’d left the parking lot. When I got home, the dogs were on me before I’d even managed to get through the door. So after two rounds of canine curd, I spied one of those bonus morsels in the bottom of the bag; you know the ones with two or three long pieces of curd wedged together that should come with a heart attack warning. I jammed them into my mouth, felt the saliva flood in and started chewing. I’d barely gotten started when the texture didn’t seem quite right. Something else was in there and it wasn’t cheese. But there was so much glorious curd in there, I wasn’t about abort my mission and waste my weekly treat.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Thanks Hydro One for a great job Dear Editor, In February, I was approached by Hydro One representatives concerning the century-old trees lining the front of the property. Having heard the horror stories about Hydro One and property owners with trees, I was a little worried. Rob Skitch and Bo (Hydro One) explained they would be bringing a new 44kV line to supply Brighton past the front of my house, and this would entail either shortening my trees by 40 feet or cutting them down all together. The reason for this new power line was to supply Brighton with a more reliable

My tongue got to probing. My face got that look on it that you get if you’re stuck in a small hockey dressing room with someone who had kielbasa for lunch. I imagined every gross thing that had ever been found in a box of cereal or bottle of pop. And then I found it. It was the darn plastic tape tie from the bag. It had somehow jumped back into the bag. When I was done my story, Karen stepped up to the plate with a tale short and sweet. “The worst thing has to be when you end up chewing on a piece of tinfoil by mistake.” Synchronized shuddering followed. That was pretty well the end of the conversation. Tin foil on teeth ruled the day. I remember a time in university when spaghetti was on the menu at least four times a week and a buddy offered me a box of one-minute porridge for variety. I relished the change of pace and was through about three packets before I noticed some of the oats had legs. Somewhere along the line some eggs had found their way into the process and hatched in the packets. Not too quick on the uptake back then but then again the boiling water had put a stop to any movement so it was all good. Many strange things have ended up on my palate along the way to present day including a large moth on a bike trip across Canada. It’s a regular joke at our house that if there’s something foreign in whatever we’re having to eat, it will end up on my plate. If there’s a piece of eggshell in the omelet, I’ll get it. If there’s a piece of stem attached to a green bean, it lands in my mouth. If my wife Mare loses a hair while cooking, it will become stuck between my teeth. The worst time for foreign objects always seem to occur when we’re sitting in a sub shop. About two bites in, nine times out of ten, I’ll grimace and say, “Man, I got wood.” Mare will shake her head, sigh and respond, “You always have wood.” People must feel sorry for me because I get the feeling they’re looking my way when I say that. Maybe it’s just empathy because they’ve also bitten into the woody part of the hot pepper or that woody part of the tomato core close to the stem. Mare never ever seems to get wood for some reason but she sure smiles when I do. Her lack of grimacing while eating is probably because she rarely chews her food more than once or twice before swallowing. It’s not right that I always bear the burden. But I take solace in the fact you’re never more than six feet away from a spider at any given time and supposedly people eat more than one a year while sleeping. Guess which one of us sleeps with her mouth wide open ...

Dear Editor, In reply to the very honest and realistic Letter to the Editor by Mr. Garry Herschberg of Havelock published in your July 4 issue, we agree wholeheartedly that the cost of dentistry in this province has become “obscene.” Mr. Herschberg addresses the fact that in other parts of the world reasonable charges abound; the USA, Mexico and Costa Rica are a few such places that we can confirm his statement. Procedures are a fraction of the cost charged by some greedy Ontario dentists

who charge much more than the fee schedule for their profession. We suggest anyone who wants to do something about this and revolt against the establishment and the high costs we are paying to make an appointment with a Dental Hygiene Clinic (there are numerous such clinics in and around Trenton and Belleville). There you can have your teeth cleaned and checked by highly skilled RDH professionals who charge considerably less for those who need regular teeth cleaning. Their expertise also

Teeth cleaning services need not be expensive

Dear Editor, Two recent letters condemning nuclear energy, discounting the usual scaremongering, are of course correct in their assertions. Yes. Nuclear energy is expensive. Yes. Nuclear Energy is extremely dangerous when mishandled. A third question needs to be answered. Is Nuclear energy necessary? Yes it is, its critics will be sorry to hear. Even Japan after its horrendous accident is restarting its nuclear power reactors. If climate change is

Dear Editor, Take it from Alan Coxwell that Justin Trudeau, a socialist facsimile of his own father, will make a better Prime Minister than Stephen Harper. That’s because Justin has so much experience in the political sphere. In reality, his election would take Canada on the road to economic disaster but then the Liberals’ major objective is to have the inmates run the asylum. One Trudeau in a lifetime should be enough for one country to digest. We’re barely recovering from the Marxist agenda of Pierre so I’m predicting the death knell for Canada if another Trudeau, especially a spoiled millionaire with only socialist ideas dancing in his head, gets elected. My prediction is that a Trudeauled government will have the same impact as Barack Obama has had in the United States. Our friends south of the border have been going downhill both economically and on the world stage in the Obama era. You can’t expect someone with a limited knowledge of the political system or a naïve response to terrorism and tainted by a far-left agenda to be a good custodian. I’d have a tough time electing Justin to the top job in any of our own regional municipal councils let alone making him the national leader. The U.S. is $17 trillion in debt, much of it since Obama took over. Expect more of the same under a Trudeau Liberal regime. As for Alan Coxwell’s letter, he should know, as a former newspaper publisher, that people are generally

Building a little hope

By Steve Jessel

EMC News - Belleville - The parking lot of the Quinte Mall was a veritable beehive of activity on Saturday, July 20, where three teams of locals participated in the Shed Some Hope event in support of the Prince-Edward Hastings branch of Habitat for Humanity.

“The awareness thing is really important, because I don’t think a lot of people really understand what Habitat for Humanity is all about.” “We’ll make some money out of this, but more importantly we’ll create some awareness in the community about Habitat for Humanity,” said Prince Edward-

Hastings Habitat for Humanity vicechair Bob Clute. Beginning at 9 a.m., teams of roughly ten people from local companies Bath Solutions, Exit Realty and Quinte Mall congregated at the mall to build handmade sheds over the course of the day. After having the final products judged by MPP Todd Smith, Belleville Councillor Jodie Jenkins and Quinte Homebuilders Association president Brian Garrard, the sheds are now on display inside the Quinte Mall, where passersby can purchase raffle tickets for $10 for a chance to take one of the sheds home with them. The tickets went on sale on July 21, and the draw will be held on Saturday, July 27, with the shed being delivered the next day. Clute said the sheds value up to $3,000, and all proceeds will go toward a Habitat home being built in Picton. The building materials were donated by Home Hardware, a national partner of the event.

“The awareness thing is really important, because I don’t think a lot of people really understand what Habitat for Humanity is all about,” Clute said. “Most people associate it with Jimmy Carter, but it goes back way farther than that.” In Prince Edward-Hastings, the Habitat for Humanity affiliate has built a total of 14 homes in Bancroft, Tweed, Belleville, Frankford, and Trenton. The almost 1,100-square-

foot homes are intended as affordable housing for “working poor,” or people who otherwise could only dream of home ownership. Home payments are geared toward individual income, and Clute said it’s important to note that payments are made toward home ownership rather than a rental agreement. “It has been a pleasure to work with the Quinte Mall in running this event for

the second time,” said Kathy Vowinckel, Board Chair for Habitat for Humanity, Prince Edward-Hastings in a release. “Shed Some Hope builds awareness of Habitat’s role in building affordable housing for families who otherwise could not afford to own their own home.” For more information on Habitat for Humanity, visit their web site at <www. habitatpeh.org>.

10 Quinte West EMC - Thursday, July 25, 2013


EMC Lifestyles - Trenton - The weather has not been good for gardening. “It was a long, cold spring, then drought,” said Trenton Horticulture Society and Garden Club member Kathy Bozin. “Even if you water, the air temperature just bakes the plant.” Kathy was one of several members with displays at the annual flower show, held July 20 at the Trenton Lions Club hall. She won “Best in Show” with her Citrus Sensation, a brilliant yellow wild yarrow with bits of lime and ivy. “I try to be creative,” she says. “I try to go natural, using twigs and wild flowers.” She also won first in “Dancing in your Boots,” with flowers coming out of an old boot she got from the Salvation Army. “I rarely spend money on design,” she says. “You don’t even have to use a vase.”

She adds that she put rocks and a plastic bag at the bottom of the boot so it would hold water. “I wanted to bring in a rose for the show, but all 20 of my rose bushes were damaged by the storm last night,” she said. Bozin loves to come to the flower shows and compete. “It’s not about winning,” she says. “It’s just for fun. The more in the show, the better it is.” Joan Gray won for Best Annual with her pretty pink petunia. “I’m surprised it is still holding up,” she said. “The weather this year has been horrible for plants, too cloudy and rainy, then hot and sunny. It’s not easy.” She planted her petunia from seed in her spare bedroom in February then put it outside in a cold frame the first of May. “The frame protects it from frost,” she explained. Elizabeth Thiel won for Best Perennial (over 15”) with her helianthus or false sunflower. “It comes up by itself,” she said with a smile. “It just grows. It does take regular watering but it’s easy care.” Jack Rumsam, past president, was on duty pouring tea at the tables. He said he enjoys gardening with his wife Pat. They have a yard full of flowers at their home at Harcourt and Barry. “My wife’s ditch has 150 flowers,” he said. Rumsam was a sailor in the Royal Canadian Navy for 35

years but retired in 1986. He and his wife along with Kathy Webb take care of the gardens in the Trenton Memorial Hospital patio and atrium. Members also look after Victoria Park and Centennial Park gardens. “The city was not supposed to cut down the bushes at Victoria Park,” president Wendy Phillips says. “We had a meeting and they were only supposed to take out the pine and trim back the rest. We were devastated when we saw what they had done the next day.” Phillips says someone has also been attacking their garden at Centennial Park. The club has 48 members and meets at Grace United Church the third Thursday of the month. It has been in existence in Trenton since 1980 but Phillips said she has seen an old photograph of the Trenton Garden Club in a large arena filled with flowers where the former Trentonian office is. “I would like to find out how far back the club actually goes,” she said. The club has guest speakers at its meetings and members love to share information about their gardens. “Banana peels kill aphids around roses,” says Anne Tetreault. “Now that we can’t use pesticides we have to find natural remedies. This one works.” Phillips said she grinds ba-

Property on Downs Road to be rezoned for single dwelling the house, will this limit it?” Jardine said, “It wouldn’t limit it. The property has lots of road frontage.” Ron Hamilton said this gives them the opportunity later if they want to do something with the property. Jardine said there are other policies they have to comply with. Ashton noted the city wanted him to sever on Parks Road for road widening.

Cori Christiaanse said she lives across the street from the Ashtons and has a personal issue. In 2001 she applied for a severance on the north side of the hill, “a useless piece of property,” and the town was supportive but a party appealed it and she was not allowed to rezone. “So now with this issue, maybe I can apply for a severance again,” she said. “The Ministry has the MDS formula for minimum

distance from an open manure pit. It is so contentious, but if it’s a personal issue, has that changed the distance requirement?” Brian Jardine said, “The policy still exists. Minimum Distance of Separation.” He said the application will get tested again, but urged her to come back, saying it was

EMC News - Quinte West - Property at 540 Downs Road has been approved for rezoning to enable development of a single detached dwelling. The lands have a total of 48.88 hectares (120.8 acres) with 158.9 metres (521 feet of frontage) with an existing dwelling, two natural gas pipelines and a creek. “The subject lands are designated Rural in the Official Plan,” stated area planner Andrea Furniss. The rezoning is from A2 to A3 and A2-42. The severed parcel does not meet the frontage and area requirements of the A2-General Rural Zone and is being placed in A3-Rural Residential Zone to comply with the bylaw. Owners Ken and Nadene Ashton attended the Planning Advisory Committee meeting on July 18. Ken Ashton asked why the property doesn’t meet the requirements for A2 because of its limited frontage on Downs Road. The property is north of Downs Road but has frontage also on Parks Road and Harrington Road. Furniss said this will have no impact on the parcel of land. “It doesn’t affect anything?” Ashton asked. Jim Alyea commented, “They have tons of road frontage. This is nickel and dime. It doesn’t make a lot of sense. It’s a technicality. They still have 120 acres.” Manager of planning Brian Jardine said, “It doesn’t impact the potential of the site.” Jim Alyea asked, “If Ashton severs

Keeping seniors active is vital to their health

By Steve Jessel

EMC News - Belleville - The seniors at Hastings Manor can always find a way to keep active, thanks in large part to a recent funding initiative announced by MP Daryl Kramp at a special ceremony on Monday, July 22. “Physical fitness is so important,” said Hastings Manor director of long-term care Claudette Dignard-Remillard. “This is a dream come true.” On display on Monday was a brand new piece of physical fitness equipment aimed at giving seniors back their strength, flexibility, endurance and above all, their independence. The Easy Stand Glider allows for active standing for seniors who might not otherwise be able to. After being seated in the equipment, a caregiver can slowly adjust the

equipment until the user is standing with the aid of the device. A user can then move the handles to create a reciprocal motion in the legs. Physiotherapist Rajesh Kini was on hand to help demonstrate the equipment, and said that it is useful in strengthening and rejuvenating joints and muscles that maybe hadn’t seen a lot of use in recent years. “It helps a resident to stand up and bear weight,” Kini said. “Mostly we use it for people who are unable to stand up, but have the ability.” The equipment was purchased by the County of Hastings using an almost $25,000 grant from the federal New Horizons for Seniors Program. Grants from the program assist organizations that want to help seniors make a difference in

others lives and in their community. “We’re fortunate, people are living so much longer these days because they’re so much more healthy,” Kramp said. “They’re eating well, we have some wonderful opportunities for care, and I’m so pleased today to see this physical fitness equipment.” Kramp also took the opportunity to thank Warden Rick Phillips and employees of Hastings County in putting together the application. “The money has resulted in the outfitting of the Barbara Michaud Fitness Centre with the newest and most modern exercise equipment available,” Phillips said. “Our residents will be healthier, more engaged, and I believe happier as a result of this Frances Schmidt of Hastings Manor demonstrates to MP Daryl Kramp how the new equipment at the Barbara Michaud Fitness equipment.” Centre is used on Monday, July 22.

Affordable Camp gives families a happy option EMC News - Frankford - Summer time and the livin’ is easy. And that’s the way it should be. For kids and parents. “We offer an affordable summer camp,” says Terry Cassidy, executive director of Community Partners for Success. It costs $75 a week without subsidy. With subsidies from the Quinte Children’s Foundation or from Social Assistance, the cost could be reduced to zero or a small amount. “We want to target the people who couldn’t afford camp,” Cassidy said. Camp locations are in Frankford at 100 North Trent Street, and in Belleville at 41 Octavia Street. Camps run from July 15 to 19, July 22 to 26, and July 29 to August 2.

He added that camp hours are 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. but extended care is available from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. for a small fee. One snack is provided during the day.

Fitness Studio given green light EMC Business - Trenton - A new fitness studio has been given the green light to set up on Dufferin Avenue. The Planning Advisory Committee approved an amendment to zoning from MC-6 Special Industrial Commercial to MC-23 Special Industrial Commercial Special Zone at Lots 12 and 13. “The lands have a lot area of 278 square metres [3,000 square feet] with 24 metres [80 feet] of frontage on Dufferin Avenue,” says area planner Andrea Furniss. The subject property contains an existing building that includes available units for service, commercial and industrial uses. “This planning district represents one of the major industrial development areas in the Trenton Urban Service Area,” Furniss notes. She said the proposed use is small in scale and will not have an impact on established commercial areas.

“The proposed fitness centre will not be operating as a gym, but rather for conducting fitness classes that can accommodate approximately ten clients,” she added. These classes are also not held continuously throughout the day or evening

but are available only at specified times, which will not have a large impact on parking demand. “The site is surrounded by several industrial uses whose employees could make use of a fitness studio in the area,” Furniss stated.

By Kate Everson

EMC News - Trenton - The ofďŹ cial opening of the Trenton Rowing and Paddling Club was held in front of their new boathouse on the Trent River on Saturday, July 20. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Welcome,â&#x20AC;? said Robin Pilon, MC for the event and volunteer in the club. She introduced president Jeff Lay with a long list of his achievements in rowing, including medals from World Championships, Pan

American Games and the Olympics. Jeff said the club has inherited equipment from the former Belleville Scullers Club and has raised over $100,000 for the boathouse. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have had amazing community support,â&#x20AC;? he added. Suzanne Andrews, manager of the Quinte West Chamber of Commerce and rowing club treasurer said it has been quite a year raising

funds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The support has been overwhelming,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The people in Quinte West love this river. This is a testament to the spirit of the community.â&#x20AC;? She listed the partners and sponsors who donated to the building either in cash, products or time. Trenval contributed $30,000, Trenton Kiwanis $10,000, Whitley Insurance $10,000, Barbara Patrick donated $10,000 in memory of Dr. Robert Patrick who loved rowing. The city gave the club a 20-year lease on the property. The Belleville Scullers Club donated $6,000 plus equipment. Glenn Kozak, executive director of Trenval, said this has been a fantastic community effort. He noted there are 94 names on the sponsor list. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never seen this many people in the park,â&#x20AC;? he added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It has revitalized the waterfront, which is a fantastic asset.

Gino Leone, president of Trenton Kiwanis Club, said they were pleased to donate to this club which attracts people from the community.

Big air and bigger tricks

Garnet Barsley attempts a difficult three flip over a stair set during the best trick competition at the Belleville Skate Park during the second annual Skate for Splash event on Saturday.

Rob Seymour seemed to enjoy showing off his skills at the Belleville skatepark during the Skate for Splash event on July 20.

QJC’s Judo Competitor of the Year was a youth provincial champion in Nova Scotia 20 years ago. Michelle actually got her start with martial arts in Karate with Kenzo Dozono, and at eight years old has already risen to two ranks below black belt. The two martial arts actually complement each other, with Sensei Dozono holding a second degree black belt in Judo from his earlier training. Judo mainly focuses on subduing an attacker with a series of throws/ holds/arm-locks and chokes, while Karate mainly focuses on a series of strikes. Michelle frequently competes against the boys as well, when there aren’t enough girls at the

events. There’s not much of a difference however under age 12 or so, and it is great for confidence building when you consider a self-defence situation. Age/weight divisions are set up, putting things on a level playing field which also promotes a lot of respect between the genders. While Michelle will have most of the summer away from Judo (club shuts down July/August), she’ll be off to Judo camp soon. This girl was also voted “Judoka of the Year” by her fellow club members, earning her a chance to train with former Olympians and their coaches at Camp Budokan for a week.

EMC Sports - The Quinte Judo Club has had an excellent season on the podium, with their members placing in the top three at every event attended. One of the club’s youngest members, Michelle Currie, will be a force to be reckoned with in the upcoming years at the provincial level! QJC’s “Competitor of the Year” award is based on consistent podium placement at Judo competitions held throughout the province, with Michelle earning 20 points more than her next closest club member. Michelle started Judo just over year ago, rising two ranks already (orange belt); she attends class with her father twice a week. Dad

EMC Sports - Belleville - The second annual Skate for Splash event took place at the Belleville Skate Park, drawing in dozens of skateboarders and BMX riders from across the area for an afternoon of gnarly tricks and more than couple of rough spills. The event was organized in part by the Belleville Kiwanis Club, with proceeds benefiting the new Belleville Splash Pad. The event also featured a barbecue and prizes for skateboards and BMX riders in both a street course competition and a best trick showdown.

Bringing Stanley home By Steve Jessel

EMC Sports - Belleville Stanley Cup winner and Belleville native Andrew Shaw made a triumphant return to the Quinte area on Thursday, bringing with him the burnished silver sheen of the one-and-only Stanley Cup. First arriving at the CFB Trenton Museum for a photo session with hundreds of fans and admirers, Shaw then arrived in the city of Belleville in style, being flown by helicopter before touching down at Zwicks Island Park. While roughly 100 fans and members of the media met Shaw as he descended, the real highlight of the afternoon came when Shaw brought the almost 35-pound trophy to the blisteringly hot confines of Memorial Arena in Belleville, where hundreds of additional hockey fans greeted the cup with cheers and endless camera flashes. “Now there’s a weekend I’ll never forget!” Shaw

posted on Twitter on Monday, July 22, shortly after his trip home. Shaw, a member of the 2012-2013 Stanley Cup winning Chicago Blackhawks was drafted in the fifth round, 139th overall in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft after spending his OHL career split between the Niagara IceDogs and the Owen Sound Attack. Shaw made his NHL debut on January 5, 2012, against the Philadelphia Flyers, recording a fight just three minutes into the game, and later scoring his first NHL goal. Shaw, a former Quinte Red Devils player, finished his rookie season with 12 goals and 23 points in 37 games played, following that up with nine goals and 15 points in 48 games this past regular season. Shaw was a major contributor to the Blackhawks’ Stanley Cup run, recording five goals, four assists and 35 penalty minutes through 23 games.

Perhaps Shaw’s most memorable moment came in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup final, where he scored the triple-overtime winner to

They were given the chance to fly in World War II aircraft: a North American Harvard, a Fleet Finch and a de Havilland Tiger Moth. One hundred flights of 500 across Canada this summer were flown in these vintage aircraft as part of the educational outreach program, Yellow Wings, developed by Vintage Wings of Canada to address the challenge of turning

Campbellford woman teaches beading while helping paint in Tanzania

Taking her talents to a rural school near Moshi, Tanzania, Glenis Buchanan of the Campbellford area, joined a team of volunteers who helped the schoolchildren there. Here she took time to teach them beading. Photo: Submitted By Sue Dickens

EMC Lifestyles - Campbellford - Seeing the smiling faces of children at a rural school in Tanzania, children she and a group of volunteers helped, changed the way Glenis Buchanan looks at her world now. “The first time I saw the children in the schoolroom they were all sitting down and looking up at you with big brown eyes. Emotionally, I started to cry,” said Buchanan. She was talking about a trip she took with her cousin Lynn Bird who is both a Rotarian and the director and treasurer of ABCD: Art Building Children’s Dreams. Bird, who is the Volunteer Monitor and Evaluator at Canadian Rotary Collaboration for International Development, knew about the needs of schoolchildren in Tanzania and decided to join a team headed to Moshi to do some volunteer work. She is no stranger to these types of trips where projects are all about “sweat equity.” The organization ABCD describes its vision “as a world where vulnerable children can achieve their dreams.” This Canadian charity raises funds to help children in rural Tanzania complete their education. Their mission is to provide financial assistance to the schools and families

or orphans and children at risk by using the children’s art to raise funds for their education and for community development. Projects in Tanzania are strong supported by a number of Rotary clubs. “Our Rotary District 7070 includes Campbellford to Picton, west to Highway #27, west of Toronto and as far as Alliston,” she noted. “We are supporting 60 individual students with their school fees and we have six breakfast programs feeding about 2,000 children,” she added. “We were a total of 24 on this team,” she told the Trent Hills Independent. The goal of the volunteers on this trip was to paint the school in preparation for a library. “We help put libraries in the schools,” she explained. The “mission” to Tanzania was a trip Buchanan said she had to make. “She surprised the heck out of me,” said Bird with candor. “She was painting library walls and put so much into it. After the first day she was trekking up and down those hills. Her contribution was incredible,” she added, praising her cousin for her effort. Besides painting, Buchanan also made use of another of her talents in Tanzania. She showed the girls and boys how to make jewellery, by beading.

“I went to an after school program and taught the young girls crafts and they beaded necklaces and they made paper puppets that move. The boys did necklaces with their names on them,” said Buchanan. “We made rings one time.” She had taken beads with her on the trip. Rotary members had taken crayons, pencils and more for the children. What struck her most was how happy the children all were, in spite of their circumstances. “The students had uniforms but they were old and tattered,” she said. “They were very happy, that’s the first thing that comes to my mind when I think of them. I’ve come to the conclusion that if you’re poor it doesn’t mean you are unhappy,” she added. For Buchanan the trip was also about learning to appreciate her home back here. “I really learned to appreciate my At her home just outside Campbellford, Glenis Buchanan talked with the Trent Hills Independent about own surroundings and what we have,” a trip she made to a rural school near Moshi, Tanzania, where she volunteered helping schoolchildren by painting the walls of their school library and teaching them beading.

Classic Country Music Reunion EMC Entertainment - Trenton - The city will once again play host to classic country musicians from across the province and beyond when the 22nd Annual Classic Country Music Reunion and Jamboree returns to Centennial Park in Trenton, August 1, 2, 3 and 4, 2013. The annual Reunion and Jamboree weekend was started in 1992 by Canadian musicians who perform traditional country music who quite frankly “got tired of only seeing their friends at funerals.” They desired to create an annual weekend where musicians, singers and fans could come together to play and enjoy the music they love best, as well as encourage young people to get involved with the more classic style of country music. “The kind of country music you will hear on our stages for the most part is traditional” says President John Lester of Lindsay.

“At this event you will hear songs made famous by stars like Hank Williams, Kitty Wells, Patsy Cline, Hank Snow, Faron Young, Alan Jackson and Merle Haggard to name a few. Their music is still as popular today as it ever was,” he says. The event features Main Stage Shows Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights at 6:30 at Centennial Park’s outdoor amphitheatre backed up by The Tim Sanders Band, a well-known group in the industry. “We’ve got three great evening main stage shows lined up,” says Lester. “Each night five or six acts will appear. Although we feel everyone on these shows is a special feature, we’re particularly proud to have recently added Canadian legend Johnny Burke to the Sunday night program. He is one of those that helped start this event, and as of last September is a proud member of the Canadian Country Music Hall of

Fame”. Over 25 hours of “open mike” time throughout the weekend gives anyone a chance to sign up and participate. The event also offers rough camping for those who wish to stay the entire weekend as well as food vendors, snack bar and other miscellaneous vendors, Sunday morning Gospel show, lots of music, and friendly faces. Those with CDs recorded are welcome to sell them at tables provided in the open mike tent. For the second year in a row the event will host two “Open Fiddle Jam” sessions on both Friday and Saturday from 11:45 a.m. until 12:45 p.m. During these two one-hour sessions fiddle plays of all ages and abilities are invited to join in on the stage in the tent and play together. This will be for the enjoyment of both the players and those in attendance who wish to play along with their backup instruments, or just sit and listen. A new feature for 2013 is being billed as an “Up Close and Personal” guitar workshop with renowned Canadian Country Musician Steve Piticco, taking place Sunday at 12 noon in the tent.

ENTERTAINMENT

Foursome add humour to Hitchcock

EMC Entertainment - Stirling When a murder victim falls into Richard Hannay’s lap, he is left with stories of spies, a map of Scotland and no other option but to run in order to clear his name. In the Alfred Hitchcock version of The 39 Steps, it’s a tale of suspense and intrigue with a myriad of characters and a regular dose of chases and plot twists. In the version now appearing on the Stirling Festival Theatre stage, it is a madcap and fast-paced comedy with only four actors and plenty of hat-tips to Hitchcock himself. The show opened in Stirling last Wednesday afternoon and continues until Saturday, August 27. Featuring SFT regular Debbie Collins, the cast also includes Mark Harapiak as Hannay, Marlene Handrahan and Scott Hurst in a show about international espionage that offers more than a few moments

of levity. In the case of Collins and Hurst, the duo of clowns don a series of hats, at times in ridiculously rapid succession, to portray a throng of characters and bystanders ranging from paperboys to aging bagpipers to pilots and hoboes. But while the show itself is pared down to its minimal cast, it is not short on complexities and relies heavily on the crucial element of comic timing. And the cast was well up for the task. Whether struggling to free himself of the corpse in his lap, attempting to outrun a pair of airplanes or simply keeping track of the characters on hand, Harapiak is the lovably deluded hero often alongside his love of the moment, Handrahan. And in all manner of guises, Collins and Hurst are given ample opportunity to show off their versatility, crossing age and gender boundaries in the blink of

an eye along the way. Collins says it is a treat to be back on the Stirling stage again and is thrilled to be working with such a talented cast. The show, which was running in Orillia before coming to Stirling last week, has had an excellent response, she adds, and is as much fun for the cast as for the audience. And while crowds were hovering around the 100 mark in early performances, theatre officials are confident that numbers will increase as the run continues. “It’s a good, fun show,” says SFT Artistic Director David Vanderlip, adding comments so far had been highly favourable. Two shows are scheduled for tomorrow (Friday) before Saturday night’s final performance at 8 p.m. Tickets ($29 each) are available at the theatre box office The 39 Steps is playing until Saturday at the Stirling Festival Theatre. Here cast members Mark Harapiak and Marlene Handraor by contacting 613-395-2100. han are showered with confetti by a pair of clowns, portrayed by Debbie Collins and Scott Hurst.

George Canyon returning to Stirling By Richard Turtle

EMC News - Stirling - With headliner George Canyon returning to the Stirling Fair and an expanded student bursary program up for grabs, Stirling Agricultural Society organizers are anticipating another busy weekend at the fairgrounds next month. Society Treasurer Roxanne Hearns says the annual celebration of agriculture is marking its 155th year August 15 - 18 and will feature a variety of competitions, demonstrations and displays including the return of demo cross, horse and tractor pulls, goat and beef shows, Homecraft exhibits and the horse show to be held in the new ring. And the society has

also announced that owing to the success of its annual steer auction bursary, the proceeds will now be shared by a pair of area students. “Thanks to the support from our sponsors, the bursary will be split between two students,” Hearns says, adding the rules for eligibility remain the same. Students enrolled in a post-secondary program in an agriculture-related discipline at a recognized institution can apply prior to the fair opening, and those eligible will be included in a draw held during opening ceremonies, August 16. Students must be residents of Hastings, Northumberland, Prince Edward, Peterborough or Lennox and Addington and be present at the

time of the draw to receive the bursary. Full details are available on the Internet at <stirlingfair.com>. The bursary has been part of the program for seven years, Hearns says, and officials are extremely pleased with the response. On the opening Friday, a live animal from Russett Farms has been auctioned off to the highest bidder, then delivered freezer-ready to the buyer at a later date. Without the ongoing support of various businesses, groups and individuals, as well as the bidding public, she says, the bursary could not have continued. Advance tickets for the Friday night concert, featuring Canyon who first appeared at the fair in 2010, are available in Stirling

at R&S Home Hardware and in Belleville at Laurier Optical until August 13 for $15. Admission at the gate on concert night is $20. Local band Back 40 will also be performing. Wristbands, good for a full-day admission, are also available. And there promises to be something for everyone, Hearns says, with the return of several popular activities, games and rides along with a few changes. The Homecraft division will also be featuring an outdoors display with a fishing theme in the arena. As in previous years, the fair is offering free admission to members of the Canadian Armed Forces and their families.


TRAVEL

Rotterdam’s architecturally unusual cube house By John M. Smith

EMC Lifestyles - One of Holland’s most unusual architectural structures, prominently displayed right in the centre of Rotterdam, is its set of Cube Houses. This housing complex, designed by the late Dutch architect Piet Blom, turned several housing units at a 45-degree angle and then the tilted units were placed on hexagon-shaped pylons and attached together. His intention, he said, was to create an unconventional “village” within the city. Therefore, he envisioned each housing unit as a separate “tree” and the entire linked complex as an urban forest. Well, this strange looking tree and forest structure is certainly a very noticeable sight, indeed! When I first gazed upon these Cube Houses, I wondered if they were about to topple over. After all, they didn’t seem to follow any conventional rules of design or traditional angles. And that’s part of the point. They’re intended to look different and to provide the occupant with a new perspective. After seeing this rather strange, unusual exterior, I was definitely curious as to what it would look like from within and I discovered that one of the units is kept for that very purpose. For 2.50 EUR,

visitors can check out the interior in the “Kijk-Kubus” (literally Show Cube), a fully furnished show home that’s open daily between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. Each “Kubuswoning” (Cube House) is built in the shape of a tilted block, with the living quarters on three different levels and with exterior walls that tilt downward to face the ground or upward to face the sun. As I ascended the stairs and entered the triangleshaped lower level, I found myself in the main living area with a kitchen on one side and sloping walls. Because of the slope, I found myself bending over a lot and wary of hitting my head. I then ascended a steep, winding staircase to the next level, with more sloped walls and a bedroom and then ascended again in a similar fashion to the top floor, which offered a nice area for office space or a garden (again in a triangle shape) and windows that faced right into the next unit. Therefore, privacy might be another problem to go along with curvature of the spine. Although I found the Cube House very interesting to visit, it wouldn’t be a place where I’d want to live. However, several people do and apparently enjoy the uniqueness of their dwellings. And the units are not cheap,

for if one came available for you to buy, it would cost you more than $200,000. Then there’d be the challenge of furnishing it, for there are those perpetually sloping walls to deal with and about 100 square metres of total living space. If you’d like to spend the night in one of these structures, contact Stayokay Rotterdam <www.stayokay.com>, for some of these are now being used as a youth hostel. While I was in the vicinity of Rotterdam’s fascinating Cube Houses, I also checked out some of the area’s other architecturally interesting structures, including the Pencil Tower, a hexagonshaped tower designed by the same architect; the eye-catching, tiered Rotterdam Central Library, the largest public library in the Netherlands; and the Blaak Station which appears to be somewhat reminiscent of a flying saucer. I also visited the very popular Blaak Market and the nearby harbour area, where I saw another striking (yet older) example of Rotterdam architecture: the White House, Europe’s first skyscraper built here in 1898. There are free “Architecture Walking Tour” and “Roaming Rotterdam” guides available from Rotterdam Tourism <www. rotterdam.info>. You’ll also find

Rotterdam’s unusual cube houses.

several interesting museums in this Dutch city, including Maritime Museum Rotterdam, Natural History Museum, Kunsthal and Museum Boijmans van Beuningen. Don’t miss seeing the statue of Erasmus, the renowned philosopher who was born here, the Erasmus Bridge (the city’s popular icon), and Delfshaven from where the pilgrims departed on the Mayflower. If you wish to explore the city on your own, you might decide to download the free Rotterdam app on your mobile phone, which has a map and an updated calendar, with the festivals, exhibitions, and events. Another way to see more of the city on the cheap is by purchasing a Rotterdam Welcome Card, for it will give you discounts to many of the city’s attractions and restaurants and includes unlimited travel on the public transport network.

First 2013 TACSTC course graduates 350

By Ross Lees

EMC News - Trenton Three hundred and fifty cadets celebrated the completion of the first two-week introductory course which focuses on teaching cadets more about the various courses offered through the Air Cadet program last Friday. The first cadets to graduate this summer from the General Training Course at the Trenton Air Cadet Summer Training Centre (TACSTC) learned about the introductory courses offered at summer training centres across Canada, including courses on drill and ceremonial parades, military bands, recreational sports, aviation technology and aerospace as well as flying itself. Approximately 1,500 cadets will attend the training centre during the summer. Reviewing Officer Lieutenant-Colonel Jean Maisonneuve, the Commanding Officer of 429 (Tranpost) Squadron, noted the learning began almost immediately for the newest cadets at summer camp. “For a lot of you, this is the first time you’ve been away from home for such an extended period of time,” he stated. “Unlike home, you had to get up at six in the morning, make your beds, and clean up after yourselves, all of this without any parental intervention. I’m sure the

mothers here today are wondering if this trend is going to continue.” He hoped when all was said and done, the cadets would remember their experience with fond memories, including the cooling shower supplied by 8 Wing firefighters to combat the heat wave, and that the cadets took note of the many unusual aircraft flying overhead during their stay at 8 Wing this summer, including the Harvard, the Fleet Finch and the de Havilland Tiger Moth, to say nothing of the C-17. Maisonneuve congratulated the cadets and their squadron leaders for their efforts throughout the camp. “You should be proud you have completed two weeks of having

W&J

fun, hard work, challenging yourselves and working as a team and all of you should be proud you completed this course,” he noted. Mr. Tommy Thomas, representing the Ontario Provincial Committee of the Air Cadet League of Canada also congratulated the cadets on completing the course during gruelling weather. “I hope you made many friends here and will complete many more courses in the future,” he said. Commanding Officer of TACSTC Major Darryl Rolfe was impressed with the turnout of parents and guardians for this first graduation parade. “I’m in awe of the number of you here today,” he noted. “As parents and supporters, I’m sure

EMC News - Campbellford - Something old, something new … and the Campbellford BIA Waterfront Festival Saturday, August 3, will deliver just that. With this being the 18th continuous year of the festival, the something new is the Crazy Canoe Races (crew and craft must be decorated) and the Rebels Horseshoe Throwing Contest. There are plans to have two pits and plenty of shoes ready for the event said Rose-Marie Kerr of the Campbellford BIA. The something old is, of course, the Instant cardboard boat races along with the ever-popular tube, canoe and belly flop contest. Last year the belly flop competition kept the crowd of onlookers cheering for their favourite entrant, which seemed to be Captain Awesome, who won first prize in the Intermediate category. Back again, by popular demand, is the “Rock, Paper Scissors Tournament” put on by Leslie Mahoney. The Rebels Beach Volleyball Tournament always draws a crowd and plenty of teams with players coming from as far away as Hamilton and Brampton. Campbellford teams who have battled it out in the past with Curtis Haig’s team beating out Tracey Foster’s players with a final score of 36 - 20 a couple of years ago. Kurtis Young of the Rebels executive will be there with volunteers, Rebels players among them, keeping score. Some of the Rebels’ players join the volleyball competition too. Now that the Rebels are hosting a horseshoe throwing competition the stakes are high. To pitch at the horseshoe throwing contest and for the volleyball tournament contact Terry or Kurtis at 705-653-0163. Volunteers and vendors are always wanted. In the past estimates have put the crowd at 2,000 and more. Other details can be found on the web site <www.CampbellfordBIA.ca>. Be part of the action, be part of the crowd and take part in this year’s Campbellford BIA Waterfront Festival.

Beekeepers sign petition to ban pesticides By Sue Dickens

EMC News - Trent Hills The buzz about bees dying just got louder. There’s now a hive of activity happening to gather signatures on a petition being circulated by the Ontario Beekeeper’s Association (OBA) to have the neonicotinoid pesticides, which it says is responsible for these losses, removed from use in Ontario. Branko Markovic is a beekeeper in Trent Hills, albeit on a small scale at the moment.

He refers to himself as, “A small sideliner with 30 hives, actually just got back to 30 after splitting and buying some bees.” He has bee yard locations at Silver Heights, Hastings, on the 8th line of Percy and Oak Heights, Warkworth. “My home yard is on Silver Heights where I own a five-acre piece of land there. I plan on building a house there before becoming a full-time beekeeper.” “I sell honey in three stores here in Toronto, and Carol

[Consell], is going to start selling it at the farmers’ market in Hastings. “Last winter was very harsh on my bees; 20 out of 30 hives didn’t survive. It was my third winter as a beekeeper, the biggest loss which I hope to never repeat again,” he told the Trent Hills Independent. “I may think of my yards as being secluded, in reality the farmland is within bee flying range,” he added. “And yes I believe that use of neonicotinoids has something to do with above the average bee losses we had province wide.” He has signed the petition. “I hope we get enough people signing, so a ban on use of neonicotinoids becomes reality, like in Europe,” he said. Commercial beekeeper Hugh Campbell, who has been in operation since 1983, said, “We lost 70 per cent of our bees last winter, that’s about 600 bees. Two years ago we lost 50 per cent.” He and his son Peter operate Campbell’s Honey House near Warkworth. When interviewed last year he said, “We have 1,200 colonies and each colony has about 100,000 bees.” The recent losses are starting to pile up and he is worried about his business. “What business can lose 30 per cent one year and 50 per cent previous years and still remain in business. It’s not going to last,” Neonicotinoids are widely used on the corn crop. Campbell said he realizes farmers don’t want to give up the insecticide. “They are afraid it’s going to hit their bottom line and they far outnumber beekeepers,” but, he said, “other farmers don’t want to lose the bees either.” Campbell noted, “There’s only a few beekeepers in Canada, in Ontario there’s

about 3,000.” “Everything needs pollination, accounting for about 30 per cent of the food we eat,” he added. According to the Ontario Beekeepers’ Association, “Ontario’s bees are dying in massive numbers due to the pervasive use of neonicotinoid pesticides on agricultural field crops. Fully a third of our food relies on pollinators: without bees, Ontario’s food supply could be in serious trouble.” Canada’s Pesticide Management Regulatory Agency has confirmed that last year’s widespread bee deaths in Ontario were caused by neonicotinoid

Stercus ergo sum significant. Of course, there is a difference between composting and just letting things rot. Composting is a directed activity designed to speed up the process. Remember, we’re talking about composting in our own back yard. Here’s how to do it: collect up all of your plant materials from flower bed and gardens. Make a big pile. Add kitchen scraps. Anything is fine as long as you stay away from bits and pieces originating from the animal kingdom. The latter is not an absolute but a good practice if you want to avoid bad smells, maggots, nocturnal visitors (skunks, cats, rats, raccoons) and possible diseases. (A browse of the Internet will generate a really scary list of problems, all of which are relatively rare and can be easily avoided.) Add water and stir. The big pile, if you have enough land, can be just that. Most urban sites have

limited space and cultural sensitivities are somewhat altered from the rural environment. The pile is usually stuffed into a container: a black cube, a green cylinder, a couple of pallets lashed together, or even a stone and mortar affair guaranteed bearproof (just remit $39 through PayPal for the plans). There are lots of writings about the mix between wet and dry and the mix of green and brown bits needed to make a hot pile. Here’s the thing; we are encouraging all those organisms mentioned in paragraph four to do their part and break down our offerings as quickly as possible. They are alive, which means they need air and water. So we add water when necessary to keep the pile moist and we stir it up occasionally to add air. Folks, when you go to the Internet to check out composting please go to web sites posted by governments, universities or dedicated organisations, e.g. Canadian

Dan Clost Compost Council of Canada at <www. compost.org/>. End notes: Can you compost dog poop? Three yes and one no. Yes, a hot pile, 140°Fahrenheit, is needed to kill all the pathogens. Yes, you can in a regular pile as long as you don’t use the compost on vegetable gardens. Yes, if you have a below ground composter into which you only put poop. No, are you nuts? Have you seen what dogs eat? Don’t you know about roundworms? Scoop it up and either flush it or put it in the trash.

“A solid mature product resulting from composting, which is a managed process of bio-oxidation of a solid heterogeneous organic substrate including a thermophilic phase.” Believe me, GR, this is the simple version. Dan’s interpretation: stuff that used be alive is broken down by lots of wee things like fungus, bacteria, and other little bits that are almost structurally complicated enough to be something else until it can’t be reduced anymore. Oh yes, somewhere along the line, the pile of rotting dead things is supposed to get hot. In reality, GR, it is very, very important that the boffins nail down these definitions so that commercial composting is a safe, complete process resulting in a safe, quantifiable product, especially when biosolids are now being incorporated into the mix. The sale of compost is big business and, without globally acceptable standards, the probability of bad things happening is

EMC Lifestyles - I compost, therefore I am … a gardener. Not quite what Descartes or any Latin scholar had in mind but the purpose is served: you cannot be a gardener unless you compost. Composting is a human invention. It can be a science, but it is not complicated. Humans have invented many devices and techniques to aid this natural process, they have used forests of paper to describe the process with scientific terminology and, after completion of these two endeavours, have managed to make it much more difficult to understand than it should be. Why this mini diatribe, Gentle Reader? I came across a recent article that made composting sound like something only a person with a PhD should attempt lest the resulting bollix results in a visit by the Compost Police. Here is a definition of compost from Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada:

Native American Poem for

Adam Reddom

I give you this one thought to keep, I am with you still, I do not sleep, I am a thousand winds that blow, I am the diamond glints on snow, I am the sunlight on ripened grain, I am the gentle autumn rain, When you awaken in the mornings’ hush, I am the swift, uplifting rush of quiet birds in circled flight. I am the soft stars that shine at night. Do not think of me as gone – I am with you still, in each new dawn. – author unknown – Passed away July 26, 1996 Love, Mom, Dad, Patti, Charlie, Wendy and family.
