New Life Girls Home celebrates 25 years

By Kate Everson

News - Consecon - Under the huge weeping willows, by the cool breezes of Weller’s Bay, the New Life Girls Home has spent 25 years helping young women cope with life. “We help them with various issues,” said executive director Charmaine Kofler. The women from ages 18 to 30 years from all across Canada and the United States live in the white house on the bay for the 13-month program. They share rooms upstairs and eat and work together, dealing with their own unique problems which could include eating disorders, addictions, self-harm, anxiety or extreme stress. “We have a holistic approach; body, mind and spirit,” says discipleship co-ordinator Linda Adams. “We are a Christian based program but we know that the physical is also important. We go for walks or to the gym. We don’t just look at one side.”

Another Quinte Ex in the books By Steve Jessel

Events - Belleville - The Belleville night sky was ablaze with music and flashing lights this past weekend, as the Quite Ex and its always popular midway drew thousands of people from across the region for four days of fun, food, and great entertainment. “We were down on Saturday with the weather, but we were up [on Sunday],

so everything works out in the end,” said Belleville Agricultural Society first vice-president Mitch Panciuk. “It’s the 192nd running of the Quinte Ex, and like many years we had some tremendous repeat activities.” Kicking off on Thursday, August 29, the 192nd running of the Ex featured a bevy of activities for both young and old, ranging from the annual livestock

shows to horse shows, live music, truck and tractor pulls, a home show, and of course the eagerly anticipated demolition derby on both Friday and Sunday nights. Panciuk said that while attendance numbers are still unknown, based on the crowds he thinks attendance was similar to 2012.

Oliver hearing nearing conclusion







By Richard Turtle

News - Belleville - Legal arguments are expected to wrap up this week before a final determination will be made regarding the future of Stirling-Rawdon Police Services Board (PSB) Chair Greg Oliver. Oliver, who was removed from the board two years ago, was the final witness in the Ontario Civilian Police Commission (OCPC) hearing into his conduct during his short-lived tenure as chair, appearing on the stand last week. On and off, and since early this spring, the public hearing has been held at the Belleville Travelodge Hotel where a public gallery of about 20 people has taken in the proceedings. Mayor Rodney Cooney, who arrived early on in Oliver’s testimony and who had appeared earlier as a witness, was soon after asked to leave the hearing at the request of OCPC lawyer Brian Whitehead, who argued Cooney might be recalled and should not hear evidence presented by Oliver in the interim. Cooney, visibly frustrated, left the proceedings and was not subsequently recalled. Evidence gathered by the two-person panel, made up

of lawyers Roy Conacher and Noelle Caloren, has included testimony from police officials as well as past and present members of the Stirling-Rawdon PSB. Much of that testimony focused on a divisive board, headed by Oliver, that allowed rumours and speculation to continue, particularly in regards to Police Chief Brian Foley’s contract and a last-minute extension, while being critical of previous board members’ decisions and the process followed. During his testimony Oliver admitted to being uncertain of his responsibilities as PSB chair as well as his role in Freedom of Information requests but maintained, particularly during questioning from Whitehead, his actions were a result of his “due diligence to document the facts.” When asked by Whitehead if the chair had a higher responsibility to set the record straight, Oliver agreed but noted, “others should have done that too.” The panel’s decision as to whether or not Oliver breached the code of conduct will determine whether or not he can return to the Stirling-Rawdon PSB as a sitting member.

Long-term care questioned councillors demanded answers to perceived injustices within the system. “We’re not doing the job,� said Dan McCaw of Wollaston Township. “We’re trying to do the job.� The presentation was focused on providing information on alternatives to long-term care, however, quickly devolved when Carl Tinney of Fara-

day Township questioned Buffett on why a resident was forced to place her 90-year-old mother in a long-term-care home some 80 kilometres distant. Buffett replied that beds in long-term-care facilities were assigned based on needs rather than location, however, the questions didn’t end there. Bonnie Adams, of Carlow-Mayo, expressed her concerns over why seniors who had “helped build their communities� were unable to find a long-term-care facility in said communities, and instead had their spots taken by out-of-towners. “There’s a flaw in the system,� she said. “I don’t know what it is but it needs to be fixed.� Part of the issue stems from the allocation of private and public beds in long-term-care facilities, explained Sue Donnan, manager of hospital and longterm-care access for the CCAC. For example, in Bancroft only 40 per cent of the beds are of the basic level, while 60 per cent are private, or preferred. This is a ratio that’s common across the province, explained Donnan, despite the fact that 65 per cent of those needing a bed require reduced rates. As the CCAC are merely facilitators for the Ontario Ministry of Health and LongTerm Care, Buffett explained it was out of their hands, although the CCAC actively advocates for a fair mix of private At the sign are New Life Girls Home staff members Charmaine Kofler, Linda Adams, Sarah Parlane and and basic beds.

Knights of Columbus donates to Afghanistan memorial By Kate Everson

News - Quinte West - The Knights of Columbus have done it again! A cheque for $500 from the council in Woodbridge was presented at the Bain Park Afghanistan Repatriation Memorial on August 28 by Trenton St. Peter’s Council #2438 Grand Knight Germain Loignon and past Grand Knight Ed Lombardi along with former MPP Hugh O’Neil to Mayor John Williams. “This brings more awareness for all the groups,” said Mayor John Williams. “We are still taking donations.” Jaclyn Grimmon, manager of recreation and tourism services, noted that the Knights of Columbus have made substantial contributions to the memorial, a total of $11,600 from councils across OnGrand Knight Germain Loignon (l) and past Grand Knight Ed Lombardi from St. Peter’s Council Knights of Columbus tario as well as $10,000 from the presented a cheque for $500 from Woodbridge Council to the Afghanistan Repatriation Memorial through Mayor John Trenton St. Peter’s council and $1,000 from their head office.

The Afghanistan Repatriation Memorial is a beautiful, permanent memorial honouring our Canadian soldiers—the men and women who have sacrificed their lives in the conflict in Afghanistan. In its park-like setting on the beautiful Bay of Quinte and with 8 Wing/Canadian Forces Base Trenton, Canada’s largest Air Force base nearby, the Afghanistan Repatriation Memorial is a fitting tribute not far from where Canadian repatriation ceremonies occur and at the beginning of our fallen soldiers’ journey along the Highway of Heroes, from Trenton to Toronto. These motorcades saw thousands of Canadians on many of Highway 401’s overpasses paying tribute to those killed in action, and their families, all the way to Toronto. The entire site was designed to be reflective and contemplative in

character and harmonize with its surroundings. Within the memorial’s circular form, two granite benches provide seating for those who come to reflect and enjoy the peace and beauty of the memorial site and park. Please join all Canadians coast to coast who have already been giving to the Afghanistan Repatriation Memorial Fund. This is not a government initiative, but solely funded by Canadians honouring Canadian soldiers who made the ultimate sacrifice during the Afghanistan Conflict.

Belleville General Hospital Auxiliary holds dollhouse raffle By Kate Everson

All special and 75th Anniversary events proceeds raised will be for this new project. Currently the special care nursery is small and offers little privacy for families. The goal of the project is to update equipment and space to better support the needs of the more complex newborns at BGH. These newborns may remain in hospital for additional days to months. During their stay, the physicians, social worker, nurses and partners work with the entire family to support the very best transition to home. They are provided a nurturing environment that provides emotional and social supports for the baby and parents. Parents are encouraged to be with their child whenever possible. The public is invited to participate in other 75th anniversary special events and help raise money for special care of newborn babies.


News - Belleville - A beautiful handcrafted dollhouse is up for raffle by the Belleville General Hospital Auxiliary. “Our goal is to raise $100,000 for the Maternal Child Project,” explained auxiliary member Bernice Ryan at a display at the Quinte Exhibition with Nancy Dafoe. Raffle tickets are on sale at the BGH gift shop where the dollhouse can be seen until the December 17 draw. “We have had the dollhouse at the Plowing Match and other big fairs,” Ryan added. The dollhouse is a work of art and has to be seen to be appreciated. The Belleville General Hospital Auxiliary launched its 75th anniversary celebrations with a new commitment for a much-needed project identified by Quinte Health Care BGH to benefit the Maternal Child Program.

Branding Brighton

News - Brighton - The Municipality of Brighton is about to be branded. “Re-branding was identified as a key priority in the Brighton Community Development Plan,” said Municipal Economic Development Manager Elisha Purchase in her report, delivered last week at an Economic Development Committee meeting. At the meeting, she presented a request for proposal for a consultant to oversee the development of the branding strategy with a closing date of September 30. Then comes the “challenge.” The plan includes getting the community involved early in the new year, when businesses and residents will be invited to submit their ideas on a new logo and branding strategy for Brighton. The top juried submissions would then stand for a community vote to decide the winner. It’s not an easy task. And one challenge might be defin-

ing exactly what a brand is. Branding municipalities isn’t like promoting a product or your favourite restaurant. “Place branding” celebrates all that is unique in a town or township: being different from your neighbours while unifying all that is Brighton under one banner. An Economic Developers Association of Canada white paper released in 2008 noted: “a strong brand is absolutely critical to successful economic development.” The online encyclopedia, Wikipedia, says branding is about turning a municipality from a location into a destination. “Successful branding can turn a city into a place where people want to live, work and visit … it’s a promise of value, a promise that needs to be kept.” According to the Association of Municipal Managers, Clerks and Treasurers of Ontario (AMCTO) web site, “branding helps municipalities by providing a common look and feel for marketing applica-

tions; economic benefits and improved morale among the municipality, businesses and community at large; a foundation for future development, new businesses and investment; and enhances civic pride and advocacy.” “It’s a crucial first step,” said Purchase. “By doing the branding first, when we go into some of the other projects like putting together a community profile or having a new web site, that brand will be illustrated through everything else we do down the road. It’s going to be a big project.” Because of the creative approach to the local branding process, Purchase is looking forward to creative people getting involved. “We’re going to get some really great, inspiring logos because of it,” she said. “But we’re really going to have to make sure the ‘community challenge’ rules are fine-tuned and has specific, detailed information about what branding is. If someone is submitting

something for this challenge, they need to know what our expectations are.” The new brand is expected to be in place by June 2014. Some financial relief for the branding project could come from the newly reinstated Rural Economic Development (RED) program, announced by the Ontario government last month. After a two-year hiatus, thanks to austerity measures taken in 2011, RED will cover between 50 and 90 per cent of project costs, but the program has been downsized, from the previously allotted $15 million per year to $4.5 million a year over the next three years. Purchase sees the RED funding as a boon to the branding exercise. “Because we are developing a brand, we would be implementing it whether we have RED funds or not,” she said. “But having RED funds allows us to do it more quickly and probably more efficiently. It also allows us to take our municipal tax money and put it toward other foreseeable projects that RED funds wouldn’t cover. It does present an opportunity to increase the budget.”

West: from the lake shore up the west side of Montrose Road subdivision to Wallbridge; then west along Frankford Road 5 to Stoney Point Road in Wooler; then south to the lake shore back along to Carrying Place then east along the shoreline back to the start point. The Trenton food bank can trace its beginnings back to 1985-1986 when a steering committee led by Donna Martin-Warren formed at St. George’s Anglican Church, assisted by other churches and service clubs. The mandate for food banks came from the realization that individual churches were being called on to provide food assistance in quantities they could not meet on an ongoing basis. An application for taxexempt status as a registered charity under the Income Tax Act became effective on June 1, 1987. The Trenton Care and Share Food Bank opened its doors in the old Police Station on the Market Square in July, 1987. Incor-

poration status was applied for in 1987 and became effective on November 25, 1988. During 1988 it moved to the Dufferin Centre and operated out of this facility for 17 years until it was forced to move to a new location where it is now at 38 Guelph Street, Trenton. The Trenton Food Bank works very closely with other food banks in the area so as there is no over extension of service or “double dipping.” It also works closely with the Salvation Army, St. Vincent de Paul Employment Office, Career Edge, Community Partners for Success, Mental Health, Social Assistance, CAS, churches, schools and service clubs. Clients are walk-ins off the street, referrals from the agencies noted above, and other sources. Those who meet the requirements receive about seven days or more of food and are eligible to use the food bank only once a month.

“The world is flat, pigs can fly and nuclear power is safe”

Dear Editor, Once upon a time I was one of the top volunteers in my region for the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of Canada (CCFC). The CCFC paid for me to go to some fancy volunteer conference of theirs, complete with a comfy paid-for hotel bed and croissants for breakfast. Back then I didn’t think about where the CCFC got the money to pay for all this. Now I think about such things and on September 9, I will be holding a protest outside of their head office at 600-60 St. Clair Avenue in Toronto. My goal will never be to attempt to take away from all the

Since the U.S. program for a new series of advanced nuclear weapons certainly breaks international treaties, Canada may be viewed as complicit by providing materials for it. One way we get rid of some depleted uranium is to coat munitions with it for greater penetration. The west has spread this material around like grass seed; in Iraq prior to 1991 cancer rates were around 40 per 100,000 by 1995 the rate had risen to 800 per 100,000 and by 2005 to 1,600 per 100,000; these people had no part in the war, neither will their children and grandchildren as the rates continue to climb. The inhabitants of Fallujah currently boast the highest rates of cancer in any population ever studied. That city was repeatedly bombed and shelled during the war fought over non-existent “weapons of mass destruction.”

Last, the word from people who are in the industry over the last few years, is that any new reactors would be U.S. style using enriched fuel, not our Candu; this would increase the risks and tie Ontario to buying fuel from the USA. The argument that we are paying companies to take our surplus power is no longer true, however, we are paying power generators to not produce power. Bruce power, which is a British private corporation, received 62 million last year to shut down a reactor or to simply let off steam. You might call this poor planning or “money for old rope.” The suggestion that Ontario acquire some electricity from Quebec was not

amazing work the CCFC has done, I am so happy the foundation exists; but I will never again raise even a dime for them. This is why. I have lived with Crohn’s disease for about a decade now. If it wasn’t for the relief cannabis offers me I don’t know how I could have mentally or physically made it through this illness. The CCFC stands between me and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) patients knowing the truth about cannabis. The only mention of cannabis on the CCFC’s web site is in their “Dear

Doctor” column. I have read the doctor’s response and unfortunately I find much of what he said to be inaccurate and/or misleading. For example, the doctor claims, “There may be more specific and safer ways to provide clinical benefit.” I have a very large stack of research articles that confirm cannabis is safer than aspirin. Can this doctor name something else that has a better safety record than aspirin? I asked the CCFC to answer this question. Their representatives ignored it. The CCFC isn’t willing to address any of my concerns about

the inaccurate and grossly biased information on their web site. I am sure this has nothing to do with the fact that one of their “Silver Sponsors” makes HUMIRA, which every person I know with Crohn’s disease is on right now, other than myself. HUMIRA is an extremely expensive drug (around $800 per injection) that my friends inject themselves with weekly and is known to cause serious infections and cancer. So … I guess the CCFC would rather kids get cancer than get “high” from cannabis? Maybe a CCFC representative can answer this question when I protest outside their

Nuclear power does not have to be on a fault line to have an accident, Three Mile Island was not, Win scale was not, neither was Chernobyl. The forest around Chernobyl has sufficient radiation embedded in the trees that should there be a large fire the equivalent fallout of a nuclear weapon would enter the atmosphere. Cleanup costs at Winscale (renamed to Sellafield), are running at over 1.5 billion per year, for the next 108 years. Another letter referred to Thorium as the ideal fuel since it breeds more fuel during the cycle. To summarize Dr. Gordon Edwards who is qualified to speak on things nuclear, thorium is neither a fuel nor an explosive in its natural state only after mutation to uranium 233 can it be used for a bomb or fuel. There are other complications making its use very difficult which

meant to replace existing supplies, simply augment them. In an Ontario Hydro study carried out in the early 1970s, the entire capacity could be doubled, by installing smaller hydraulic generators in existing dam locations. I believe the peak at that time was 270,000 megawatts. The cheapest solution is still conservation, however you heat you home or heat the water take advantage of more efficient systems and do not waste it. One other source that is never mentioned is human sewage, already piped to central locations in every city and then allowed to vent the gas rather than capture it. If some farmers can manage to save this currently wasted fuel, why not cities as is currently the case in Scandinavia?   Paul Whittaker, RR#1 Gilmour

Dear Editor, The above is a quote from the 1980s anti-nuke movement. The Pandora’s box that is nuclear power has provided electricity to Ontario at comparable prices for decades. The part of the price equation left out is what happens after the final plug is pulled, in addition to the nuclear debt we are all still paying built from hugely underestimated construction costs and massive refurbishing cost overruns. The cost of dismantling a nuclear power station is expected to be much higher than the cost of building it. The cost of dealing with the waste fuel accumulated over the past 60 years is still a mystery. The environmental risks are extraordinary high; A Lac Megantic accident with the liquid high level waste from Chalk River being shipped to the U.S. weapons plant in Georgia would be long-term destruction on a grand scale.

OPINION Syria: The pretext and the real target

Editorial - “Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me”—so the British parliament decided that it didn’t want to be shamed by following another prime minister into another unwinnable war on the basis, yet again, of shoddy intelligence reports. It voted 282-275 against committing British forces to the planned American attack on Syria. After the vote on August 29, Prime Minister David Cameron admitted that former prime minister Tony Blair had “poisoned the well” by leading Britain into the Iraq war in 2003 on the basis of false intelligence reports about Iraq’s non-existent “weapons of mass destruction.” That was why neither the public nor even some members of Cameron’s own party now trusted his assertions on Syrian “WMD.” “I get it,” Cameron said, and promised Britain would stay out of the coming war. On the next day, U.S. President Barack Obama followed the British government’s example by announcing that he would seek the approval of Congress before launching strikes on Syria. He still felt that the Syrian regime should be punished for using poison gas, he said, but it turns out that the operation is not “time-sensitive” after all. Everything can wait until the U.S. Congress resumes sitting on September 9. This came as a great surprise to many people, but it shouldn’t have. Obama is probably secretly grateful to Britain for pulling out, because it has given him an excuse to postpone the attack—maybe even to cancel it, in the end. He foolishly painted himself into a corner with his tongue last year by talking about a “red line” that he would never allow the Assad regime in Syria to cross, but he wasn’t elected to be policeman of the world. That was the role George W Bush tried to play, but American voters want no more of the wars that come with it. Obama got U.S. troops out of Iraq, and they’ll soon be out of Afghanistan as well. He doesn’t want to end up fighting a war in Syria, and that will be hard to avoid that if he starts bombing. “Once we take action, we should be prepared for what comes next,” wrote General Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, only one month ago. “Deeper involvement is hard to avoid.”

Gwynne Dyer

Retired General Anthony Zinni, former U.S. commander in the Middle East, expanded on that with brutal clarity. “The one thing we should learn is you can’t get a little bit pregnant. If you do a one-and-done [a few days’ punitive air strikes with Tomahawk cruise missiles] and say you’re going to repeat it if unacceptable things happen, you might find these people keep doing unacceptable things. It will suck you in.” Obama’s problem is that he has fallen into the clutches of Washington’s foreign policy establishment, which has enduring purposes and prejudices that usually overpower the particular views and wishes of passing presidents and Congresses. Consider its six-decade loathing of Cuba and its 35-year vendetta against Iran. (It hates to be successfully defied.) This establishment has no problems with weapons of mass destruction so long as they are on its side. It has never renounced the right to initiate the use of nuclear weapons, although they are a hundred times deadlier than poison gas. It didn’t even mind the Shah of Iran working to get them, back when he was Washington’s designated enforcer in the Middle East. But it has never forgiven the Iranians for overthrowing the Shah. Washington then switched to backing its new ally, Saddam Hussein, who used poison gas extensively in his war against Iran in 1980-1988. U.S. Air Force intelligence officers helped Saddam to plan his gas attacks on Iran’s trenches, and the Central Intelligence Agency tried to pin the blame for Saddam’s use of gas against the Kurds on Iran instead. Now Saddam is gone and Iraq is Iran’s ally (thanks to George W Bush’s invasion of Iraq in 2003). But Iran is still the main enemy, and the game goes on. Syria is Iran’s ally, so Washington has always seen the regime in Damascus as an enemy too. Over a thousand Egyptians murdered in the streets of Cairo by the army that overthrew the elected government last month is no cause for U.S. intervention, because Egypt is an ally. Over a thousand Syrians killed in the streets of Damascus by poison gas requires an American military response, because Bashar alAssad’s regime is the enemy. Assad’s regime must not be destroyed, because then alQaeda might inherit power in Syria. But it must be whacked quite hard, so that it dumps Assad—and with him, perhaps, the alliance with Iran. The gas is a pretext, not the real motive for the promised strikes. Obama doubts that this will work, and rightly fears that even a “limited” American attack on Syria could end up as a full-scale war. The events in London have won him some time, and “letting Congress decide” is his best chance to escape from his dilemma. What could possibly go wrong?


Be “cool”; get on the marijuana bandwagon Dear Editor, It’s amazing how many political leaders, and even those ordinary “know-it-alls,” are trying their level best to get aboard the so-called elite “cool” bandwagon these days. It’s all about whether or not you have actually smoked marijuana sometime in your lifetime. Let me get this straight. It’s not “cool” to smoke cigarettes or even have someone smoke anywhere close to your home or office buildings but it’s okay to get

Culture tourism flourishes in our region By Bill Freeman Editorial - You can laugh all you want at Toronto Mayor Rob Ford, and we all do, but when he stumbled shambolically through the Taste of the Danforth recently he was participating in one of Ontario’s most significant industries, culture tourism. Perhaps it’s a secret to some but it shouldn’t be because culture tourism, and more broadly the so-called “creative cluster,” are true economic heavyweights generating multi-billions of dollars in Gross Domestic Product each year, expanding at rates that would make the folks at BlackBerry choke with envy. The numbers paint an impressive picture and in this region we’re spoiled by the richness of the arts, from its bustling galleries, wineries and theatres to live music festivals big and small and the performance spaces that welcome artists and entertainers on a regular basis. You can travel to Toronto, Ottawa or Montreal if you want but you really don’t need to because world-class arts and cultural experiences take place in our own backyard; and if that isn’t enough the steady flight of artists and cultural entrepreneurs looking to relocate to this area grows annually which confirms how “happening” things are right now. Big ticket items like the Havelock Country Jamboree, Rockfest, the Big Music Fest, Westben are joined by a variety of gallery tours across the region, free music nights in dozens of communities including the large and eclectic Musicfest in Peterborough; clubs and performance arts centres keep calendars filled twelve months of the year. It’s incessant and it’s exciting. In 2010 alone arts and culture tourists spent $3.7 billion in GDP provincewide. Expand that to include all creative industries and the figure jumps to $12.2 billion. According to the Martin Prosperity Institute at the York University’s Rotman School of Management, Ontario ranks third in North America in terms of entertainment and media economies. A report commissioned by the Ontario Arts Council reveals that 9.5 million overnight tourists to Ontario participated in arts and culture activities events during their visits in 2010; that represents over 22 per cent of all overnight visitors to the province. Those tourists spent $1.1 billion on lodgings, $1.1 billion on food and beverages, $600 million on retail and $500 on entertainment and recreation. That’s more than small change. The live music sector in Ontario, which fairly hums in our region offering everything from sweaty nights at the Legendary Red Dog in Peterborough to state-of-the-art comfort at the Empire Theatre in Belleville and the 19th century elegance of Victoria Hall in Cobourg, generates $455 million in revenues every year. According to another study, this time by PricewaterhouseCoopers, Canadian live music has grown at a rate of 6.4 per cent since 2010. “Music is one of Ontario’s richest assets; the size, diversity and vibrancy of the cluster sets us apart from any other jurisdiction in North America,” says Graham Henderson the president of Music Canada. Adds Stuart Johnston, president of the Canadian Independent Music Association and Music Ontario: “Our music, and in particular our live music scenes in communities across the province not only provide great entertainment to a legion of fans but are an important driver of tourism and economic development in Ontario as well.” Every time you visit a coffeehouse music jam, or library author’s night, or explore a museum or gallery, or bring your lawn chair to a park to enjoy live theatre, or take your kids to a water festival, or cut loose at a concert you’re contributing to revenue generation, job creation and helping out a few artists along the way. I love live entertainment; I love the sheer unbridled fun artists have creating and the unique connections they form with their fans and the curious who might be checking them out for the first time. There is a refreshing dialogue, spoken and unspoken, between the creative artist and the consumer. And every one of those neat little artistic engagements helps build economies. They also help round out our civilisation because when we reduce artistic opportunity we stifle the creative instinct and when we do that we are no better than North Korea.

high on marijuana even though the smell is far worse. I’ve been at a concert in Florida where a man behind me, apparently with breathing problems, had to be taken away on a stretcher because a group of marijuana users were smoking up a storm a few seats away. That was some 30 years ago and I didn’t think it was so “cool.” If the legalization of marijuana is Liberal leader Justin Trudeau’s idea of a major issue, followed closely by the

idea terrorist Omar Khadr should be treated like every other Canadian, then God help us if this excuse for a politician ever becomes Prime Minister. Personally I’d prefer to hear about how Trudeau plans to deal with our economic deficit position and whether he’s for or against a balanced budget amendment. But it may be difficult for him to see the pertinent issues through the smoking haze. Rolly Ethier, Campbellford

Scottish Irish Festival all set to go

Events - Trenton - Centennial Park will be filled with the sounds of Celtic music on Friday, September 6; gates will open at 6 p.m. for the fourth annual “Salute to the Troops” Tattoo. Massed pipe bands, brass and reed, Highland dancers, Irish dancers and some other special performers will take the field at 7:30 p.m. Guest bands are the Queen’s Own Rifles Brass Band from Toronto, Prince of Wales Regiment from Kingston and Trenton’s own 8 Wing Pipes and Drums and 413 Wing AFAC Pipes and Drums. It will be a spectacular show. Lieutenant-Colonel D. Breton, representing the Wing Commander of 8 Wing will take the salute for the Tattoo. Upon the completion of the Tattoo get ready to sing and dance to the music of Poor Angus in the Festival Pavilion. Poor Angus is the celebrated Top Four Finalists in CBC’s Searchlight Canada. There is nothing quite like a Poor Angus show. No two shows are alike, but every show leaves audiences calling for more. Tickets for both shows, $10, are available online at <> or at City Hall. Tickets are also available at the gates. Come early, stay late.

Saturday, the major part of the festival gets under way. It will be starting with a parade of bands through downtown Trenton at 10 a.m. The parade will definitely get your blood stirring with the sound of the pipes and drums. Opening ceremonies will be at the park beginning at 11 a.m. with our honoured guests. During the opening ceremonies, Kevin Fast, from Cobourg, will be attempting his 19th Guinness World record. Kevin will be going for the greatest number of cabers to be thrown in three minutes. The current record is seven. We are encouraging everyone to cheer Kevin on as he attempts this latest record. Massed bands take the field at 11:45 a.m. and all entertainment gets going on two stages just after noon. What better way to spend your Saturday? Vendors galore will have everything Celtic to look at or buy; food vendors will entice your palate. Take a look at our Heritage Centre/Info Booth. There’s something for everyone. Admission on Saturday is FREE. Parking $2. There will also be the heavy events athletes taking the field for the hammer throw, sheaf toss, the putt for distance and everybody’s favourite, and

the caber toss. We will have both female athletes and male athletes competing in both professional and amateur events; 2013 will see the largest number of athletes competing in the heavy events. New this year is Participation Cricket Games on the north side of Couch Crescent. “Play Ball.” Scottish Style: The Scots are a sports-loving people and

one of the summer team sports they enjoy is the venerable old game of cricket, which is almost as popular in Scotland as baseball is in North America. Visitors to this year’s Trenton Scottish Irish Festival on September 7 will have an opportunity to personally experience this aspect of Scottish culture by joining in the short, informal, cricket games that cricket player and author Tom Melville will

be conducting from 1 to 4:30 p.m. The games will be run on a continuous walk-up basis and are open to everyone. Absolutely no experience is required. So come and discover what “play ball” means to the Scots. 
Later on Saturday evening, the pavilion will be the rocking place to be when McGreevy and Hardman, Steel City Rovers and Salty Dog take the stage. Come out and enjoy the day.

New Season, fresh start. Quality care. Exceptional service. The worry-free lifestyle you deserve. Call today to book your personal visit!

A new fencing force coming up from Belleville By Steve Jessel

News - Belleville - The Canadian fencing scene could very well have a new challenger in the coming years, as a Belleville native made waves this past month by competing at the under-20 Canada Games at just 14 years of age. Since starting fencing in 2011,

Bayside Secondary School student Danielle Burghgraef has seen an almost unprecedented level of growth and success, culminating with an appearance at the 2013 Canada Summer Games in Sherbrook, Quebec, from August 2 to 17. However, that appearance wasn’t always a sure thing, and mother Tina

Burghgraef said she was a little surprised when Danielle first asked her if she could take up fencing roughly two years ago. “I kind of laughed at her, because I had never heard of fencing around here,” Tina said. “When I Googled it that night, there happened to be an open house that same night for the

Loyalist Fencing Club. From there it just took off.” For Danielle, already an accomplished karate practitioner sporting a brown belt (the highest level she can achieve for her age), the love of fencing comes both from the speed, and the intensity of the sport. Many kids her age are likely to take up hockey, soccer or something similar, but the uniqueness of fencing is its own draw for Danielle, Danielle Burghgraef, 14, recently competed at the Canada Summer to the point where Games, finishing seventh.

Midway draws thousands of people

musician Kix Brooks was a bit of a “disappointment,” said Panciuk, as the show was unable to draw in very many people. “The concert on Saturday was a bit of a disappointment; we didn’t do as well as we had hoped and we’re going to reevaluate big name live entertainment going forward,” Panciuk said. “We’ll have to take a hard look at what we do on the Saturday night.” Balancing the disappointment of the Kix Brooks show was the continued strength of the agricultural activities at the fair, said Panciuk.

As for the other activities, the midway was appropriately busy based on feedback from operators, and in fact stayed open an extra three hours on Sunday night to accommodate the crowds. The demolition derbies, held on both Friday and Sunday were also extremely well attended. “The Sunday night demolition derby crowd was one of the biggest ones we’ve had; it was huge,” Panciuk said. Moving forward, Panciuk did make note of the agricultural society’s desire to move to a new facility, as the current accommodations at the Quinte Exhibition and Raceway have seen better days. Panciuk said the society is currently working with the city to find a new use for the fairgrounds, which would allow the Exhibition to seek greener pastures for future runnings of the fair. “We struggle with our facility just in terms of age and what we have there, but I think we did a pretty good job overall and we’re happy,” Panciuk said. “For the last eight years we’ve been in sort The always-popular midway made its return to the Quinte Exhibition, attracting thousands of people over the four-day event. of a holding pattern waiting to move … Photo: Steve Jessel and the facility is eight years older.”

The Southern Ontario Sprint Championship race on Sunday at Brighton Speedway saw 07x Dain Naida take the checkered flag but it was the County’s own #11 Chris Jones who was crowned the 2013 Champion.


Sports - Brighton - The 11th annual Bellevue Fabricating Ltd Labour Day Classic at Brighton Speedway presented by Lucas Oil, Custom Carts and Back Yard Bouncers saw Prince Edward County driver Chris Jones capture his first Sprint Car Championship. Large crowds filled the stands both nights and were not disappointed by the great racing action around the one-third-mile oval. Saturday night’s racing was action packed and was capped off by #11j Chris Jones winning the Sanderson Tire and Automotive SOS Main Event. The win marked Chris’ third win in a row at Brighton and helped solidify his points lead going into Sunday’s Championship event. Behind Chris were teammates from the Ohsweken Speedway with #0 Glen Styres picking up second and the 7x of Jamie Collard who was the only driver within striking distance of Jones. Other winners on Saturday night included #99 Arthur McCauley picking up his first win of the season in the Quinte Septic Stingers. Brandon Wilkie, #44, picked up the win in the Bill’s Johns Comp 4 division; #72 Doug Anderson won the Brighton Automotive Pro Stocks while #33 Ryan Scott increased his points lead in the OilGard Canadian Modified Division by picking up the win. Sunday night was Championship night at Brighton for the Southern Ontario Spints and tension was in the air to see the first Brighton Area Driver win the championship. Chris Jones, who started racing at Brighton in a Pro Stock at the age of 14, spent the early years of his career racing at Brighton before moving onto Modifieds.  His dream season was completed after a hard-fought third-place finish on Sunday night; 07x Dain Naida won the race while teammate and series runner-up Jamie Collard finished second. Just 66 points separated the top two heading into SOS Championship Night. As the race, progressed both Collard and Jones worked through the field and found themselves directly behind Naida. A late race caution with six laps remaining tightened the field; however Naida drove away to his first SOS win of the season over Collard and Jones. The podium finish for Jones was enough to clinch his first sprint car championship. The large crowd cheered loudly for the first hometown champion in 18 seasons of SOS competition. Sunday Night also featured a 30lap Invitational for Comp 4’s.  The race was action packed with lots of passing throughout the race which saw a number of passes between leaders #29 Rich Saunders and #97 Dan Ferguson.  A late race restart saw the two of them get tangled up and open the door for #43 Tom Vance to take the $500 win.  The Brighton Automotive Pro Stocks saw a 23-car field take to the track for the 50-lap main event and through the luck of the redraw #72 Doug Anderson started on the outside pole. Lee Winger, #2x, from Ohsweken, made every attempt to challenge Anderson on a couple of late race restarts but Anderson held on for the Labour Day win.   The Vanderlaan’s Building Supplies Late Models hosted a 30-lap

Armstrong had some help at the open house with track star Leaugen Fray who showed the kids how to run, high jump and broad jump. He joined in a relay, racing around the track with children as young as five years old. “We are trying to promote registration,” Armstrong said. “It will help kids who are going into cross-country at their schools this year.” About 22 youngsters from five to 19 years old have joined the club which meets every Tuesday at Trenton High School from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. “Anyone can register,” Armstrong said. The contact is <> or call 613-3973236. “It’s good practice for them,” he added.

The young people come from Trenton, Brighton, Bayside and beyond to join the track club. Addison VanAllen in her pink running shoes is going into Senior Kindergarten this year at St. Mary’s school in Trenton. Julia Peck from Frankford will be in Grade 4 in Bayside. Julia Martin from Brighton is in Grade 8. Others joined in for the open house, hoping to stir up more interest in the club.

Jerseys and Holsteins on display at the Ex

News - Belleville - For many people, the heart of the Quinte Ex lies in its agricultural routes, and for nearly two centuries the Ex has served as a gathering point for local farmers to proudly display the fruits of their labour. This year was no different, and all throughout the four-day event heifers, Holsteins and livestock of every shape and colour were paraded, judged and graded for hundreds of interested onlookers. Two of the mainstays of the agricultural events at the Quinte Ex are the annual Jersey and Holstein

shows, which for almost two centuries have recognized the top cow breeders and the top animals in the region. The Quinte Jersey Championship, held on Thursday night was announced as the largest Jersey show in Canada this year to date, and Quinte Agricultural Society second vice president Donnie Jarrell said the annual event is a great way for local breeders to weigh themselves against their contemporaries. “What this does is, you can basically look at this as a ‘cow resume,’” Jarrell said. “From there you kind of get an idea of where you stand amongst your

local club.” Not to be confused with Holstein cows, Jersey cows are predominantly brown in colour, and produce a higher fat content milk that is used in things like butter and cheese. Each year the Jersey championship draws roughly 20 herds from as far as Bowmanville and parts of Ottawa, and many of the animals shown also have the potential to go on to national competition later in the year. “This area itself is known for its really good genetics, and there’s some really good herds in this area,” Jarrell

produces quality cattle. “I knew there were going to be good ones here. I’ve seen them at other shows and I know the exhibitors that come always have good cows,” he said. “Some of the people here are the best in world at getting cows ready … it wasn’t surprising to see so many good animals here.” While the animals on display might never be used to produce milk, or be turned into a steak, Jarrell said the draw for many observers and competitors is the genetics of each animal.

said. “Because of that, if your animals are doing really well here, you’re beating a lot of the good animals that are out there.” Not to be confused with the Jersey Championships, the Quinte Ex Holstein Show took place the following night on Saturday evening, and attracted dozens of competitors and animals to determine the best cows in their respective classes. Judge and dairy farmer Glenn Barkey, of Blackstock, said it wasn’t surprising to see the quality of animal on display, adding that the Quinte region typically

Almost three decades of “monarchy” By Ray Yurkowski

News - Brighton - For 29 years now, Don Davis has been the resident monarch expert on Labour Day weekend as Presqu’ile Provincial Park celebrates the butterfly and the wonder of its annual migration to Mexico. Davis, a native of Colborne, says the butterflies tweaked his interest since completing a high school science fair project in 1967 at East Northumberland Secondary School.

“I tagged butterflies for a few years, got away from it for a little while, but back in 1985, I thought, ‘wouldn’t it be really neat to tag a monarch butterfly at Presqu’ile and have it found in Mexico,’” he said. Twenty-nine years later, he’s still at it as one of the feature attractions on Monarch and Migrants Weekend: tagging; educating the public; and giving the kids, young and old alike, an opportunity to release a butterfly for the migration south.

“We get good crowds of people from all over,” he said. “People are really fascinated. Every year, people come out and they come back again. Now their kids are coming to Presqu’ile to learn about the monarch butterfly.” He figures, over the years, he’s tagged more than 100,000 butterflies and currently holds the Guinness Book of World Records title for the longest migration by a monarch. A tagged male released at Presqu’ile Park on

in monarch butterfly research claims Davis. The inaugural meeting leading to the formation of the Insect Migration Association, founded by Norah and Dr. Fred Urquhart in the 1950s enlisting thousands of volunteers across North America to tag butterflies as a way to track their migration route, was held at the local park. As well, U.S. expert Lincoln Brower, who has studied monarch butterflies for 58 years, visited the park in 1985. “And, Presqu’ile Park is on a migration route,” added Davis. When asked for a quick fact about the monarch butterfly, he quipped, “It’s a tropical species and has to migrate. It can’t survive our winters.”

Grand Prix Race Weekend

September 10, 1988, was recaptured on April 8, 1989, in Austin, Texas, after travelling an estimated 2,880 miles (4,635 kilometres). Experts figure the butterfly had flown to Mexico and was making the return trip. More recently, four of the tagged specimens from last year’s weekend event were found in Mexico. Davis has even had a taste of Hollywood thanks to the winged wonders, helping out during the filming of the IMAX film, Flight of the Butterflies, now showing at the Ontario Science Centre in Toronto. He even attended the world premiere at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History in Washington D.C. Presqu’ile Park has a significant role

4-H deemed a valuable tool for youngsters Continued from page B1

market based on breeding potential Some families and farms have spent alone. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The better the genetic base to work generations breeding very specific traits into their cows, and today some from, the greater the odds of having animals can fetch up to $50,000 on the better animals,â&#x20AC;? Jarrell said.

When the dust had settled, the pair of shows each crowned a grand champion, drawn from the winners of each of the age categories shown throughout the day. For the Jersey Championship, Avonlea CF Baby Breeze ET of Avonlea Genetics and Cybil Fisher was named grand champion, and for the Holstein show, Kingsway Sanchez Orangutan of Kingsway Farms also took home top honours. Not to be left behind, the younger generations also hold their own cow shows at the Ex each year, under the

overarching umbrella of the 4-H club. The 4-H dairy show took place on Saturday, while the 4-H beef show took place Sunday, each crowning champions in a wide range of categories. One of those champions, Ashley Baker of Baker Farms was entering her ďŹ nal year of 4-H, and said the bond she had grown with her cow Zagucci was perhaps the most valuable part of the experience for her. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing better than spending a day with this heifer here. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s truly fantastic just to be able to go into that

ring and compete, and to see all your hard work pay off. I spend more time with her than I do with my boyfriend; thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just nothing better,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s my best friend and she has been since the day she was born.â&#x20AC;? Judge Steve Burgomaster of Peterborough agreed that 4-H is a valuable tool for youngsters, and not just for learning life skills. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It teaches you responsibility, it teaches you social skills, it teaches you how to develop and create a goal and how to accomplish that,â&#x20AC;? he said.

Humane Society receives calls of animals left in hot cars By Sue Dickens

animal cruelty charges following the death of a dog locked in a car parked at Vaughn Mills Mall. A Kingston man was charged under the Ontario SPCA Act after a dog was left unattended in a hot car at the Loblawâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parking lot at Queens Quay and Jarvis Street. This summer it was reported that a Jack Russell terrier, â&#x20AC;&#x153;near deathâ&#x20AC;? was rescued from a parked vehicle when a Lincoln County Humane Society official broke the vehicleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s window in the St. Catharines hospital parking lot.

Because of a limited ability to sweat, even a short time in a hot environment can be lifethreatening. If the animal is clearly in distress, she will remove it and take it immediately to a vet. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Evidence of distress is usually pretty obvious, the animal is panting, drooling or staggering or even unconscious,â&#x20AC;? she said. Foster has responded to calls of not only dogs or cats left alone in a hot vehicle, but â&#x20AC;&#x153;sometimes small rodents.â&#x20AC;?

Schools are open and school buses are on the roads

News - The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) Central Region would like to remind the public schools are open and school buses are on the road. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The driving public is being asked to decrease their speed accordingly in all school zones, look for flashing stop arms from school buses picking up and discharging passengers and watch for young children who are walking to and from school,â&#x20AC;? says Inspector Dom Beckett, manager of the OPP Central Region Traffic and Marine. Chief Superintendent Brad Blair, Regional Commander of the OPP Central Region, says â&#x20AC;&#x153;for some young children, Tuesday was their first day of school and it will be one of mixed emotions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some of these children may be walking with parents or older siblings and will be learning how to properly walk to school, so caution in school areas is imperative at all times.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Officers from our detachments will be paying special attention to school zones in their patrol areas and will closely be watching to make sure that every child has the opportunity to safely arrive at school and home each day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Road safety is a shared responsibility, please do your part,â&#x20AC;? adds Chief Superintendent Blair.

Bulls prepare for upcoming hockey season By Steve Jessel

Sports - Belleville - Preseason action is under way for the Belleville Bulls hockey club, and with training camp in the books assistant coach Jake Grimes said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happy with the level of talent that was shown at the largest Bulls camp in roughly a decade. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All the kids competed really hard; it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t easy for the veterans and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good too,â&#x20AC;? Grimes said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Although some of the veterans did come back looking really strong.â&#x20AC;? The Bulls could be one the OHLâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most intriguing storylines this upcoming season, as less than a year after topping the Eastern Conference standings the Bulls appear to be in rebuilding mode, awaiting word from several key contributors on whether or not they will return to the team for the upcoming season. This is an eventuality the team has prepared for, Grimes said, and is the main reason the team invited a total of 54 players to camp this year to compete for roster spots.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s obviously a big swing,â&#x20AC;? Grimes said, after being asked how potentially losing the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s starting goaltender in Malcolm Subban and captain in Brendan Gaunce would affect the team. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When they move to the other level â&#x20AC;Ś which is the goal of the organization and their goal â&#x20AC;Ś when they move itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not like youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve traded them and got something back for them, so thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing in return. They canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be replaced.â&#x20AC;? Of the 54 players at camp this year only 14 were returning players from last seasonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s squad, meaning more than a few members of the roster will likely taste OHL action for the first time once the season begins. Justin Lemcke, the Bullsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; first-round pick from 2013 will almost certainly be one of them, and when asked if any players had particularly impressed him during camp Grimes immediately pointed to Lemcke as a bright part of the Bulls future.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to say that Justin Lemcke stands out because heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s our first-round pick, but I will say it because nothing tells me heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a 16-year-old,â&#x20AC;? Grimes said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He looks like an 18-year-old, he acts like an 18-year-old veteran, he plays like an 18-year-old veteran already â&#x20AC;Ś heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been phenomenal to watch and to work with.â&#x20AC;? With so many players at camp vying for so few roster spots, competition could get fierce at times, and Grimes said there were some very particular attributes the team was looking for in camp invitees and free agents. One of those attributes will be the ability to play under the bright lights of the OHL stage without losing their cool, something that will stem from playing the right way, Grimes explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want guys that are coming in on a mission, and guys that are not in awe of the NHL picks or players that we have here, guys who are completely focused on getting the job done and are consistent, do all the little

action for the Bulls will be 2013 fourth-round selection Adam Laishram, 2012 seventhround selection Andrew Ming, and 2013 ninth-round pick and reigning Central Ontario Jr. C Rookie of the Year Justin Bean, who all signed contracts last week. Laishram played last season alongside Bulls firstround pick Justin Lemcke for the Whitby Wildcats Minor Midgets, recording 14 goals and 19 assists in 35 games. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Adam has impressed us with his speed, skill and vision,â&#x20AC;? said Bulls head coach and general manager George Burnett. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He competes hard out there every single shift and knows how to use his creativity to his advantage.â&#x20AC;? The 2012 draftee Ming spent last season with the Cornwall Colts Jr. A program, putting up four goals and 21 assists in 55 games at just 16 years of age. The Cornwall native will likely have November 22 circled on his calendar, when the Bulls travel to Kitchener to play against his brother Eric Ming, a

forward for the Rangers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There has been a lot of improvement in Andrewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game over the last season,â&#x20AC;? said Burnett. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After a year in Tier II he has come back to our camp bigger, stronger and has made Recently signed 2012 seventh round draft pick Andrew Ming attempt to make his way past defenceman Fraser Turner during a improvements to his skating.â&#x20AC;? Belleville Bulls training camp scrimmage on Friday, August 30. Photo: Steve Jessel Last but not least, the Bulls signed 1996 player Justin Bean, a defenceman selected in the ninth round of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s draft. UI The Pickering native had eight goals and 24 assists for the Uxbridge Bruins Jr. C program en route to claiming rookie of the year honours for the league. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Justinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s development path has been different than a lot of other players his age,â&#x20AC;? said Branch. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We saw him playing in Uxbridge this season where he accomplished a lot of great things and was drawing the attention of other OHL clubs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He is intelligent, a strong skater and can move the puck well. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re excited to see Justinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s progression here in a Bulls uniform.â&#x20AC;?

things, and show us already the things that they need to do to be successful in this league,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to have to go in and make sure theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re competing, and following the system every single night.â&#x20AC;? When looking at the potential team roster for 2013-2014, Grimes conceded it could be seen as a franchise in rebuilding mode. That being said, he was not sparing in his praise of the returning veterans and new players alike, and with the status of several club NHL prospects

still up in the air, the Belleville Bulls could be in for a enthralling 2013/2014 campaign when they kick off the regular season on September 20 against the Ottawa 67â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. â&#x20AC;&#x153;On paper, is it a rebuilding year? Yes, but we think that the talent is pretty strong,â&#x20AC;? Grimes said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We think that we have a lot of guys here, who because of our veteran team [last year] had a little less opportunity than they would have had with other teams, and are maybe better than people think.â&#x20AC;?

The Bulls kicked off exhibition play with a 6 - 5 loss on Sunday to the Peterborough Petes. The Bulls pay a return trip to Peterborough on September 5, before returning home to host the Kingston Frontenacs on Saturday, September 7. The Bulls start the regular season on the road against Ottawa on September 20, and host the newly relocated North Bay Battalion the following night at the Yardmen Arena on September 21 for the 2013/2014 home opener.

Bulls shore up roster

Sports - Belleville - The Belleville Bulls have signed hometown boy and St. Theresa Titans player Brody Morris, of Corbyville, to an OHL Standard Players Agreement the team announced this past week, one of a number of roster moves made in preparation of the opening of the OHL regular season which begins on Thursday, September 19. A total of four late-round draft pick signings were announced by the Bulls this past week, including Morris, a 6 foot 1 inch, 187-pound defenceman who had two goals and 10 assists in 47 games with the Wellington Dukes Jr. A club he spent last season with. Morris was a ninthround pick of the Bulls in 2012. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Brody has the reputation of being a tough customer to deal with in his own zone,â&#x20AC;? said Bulls assistant general manager Barclay Branch in a release. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He plays with the edge we like to see out of a defensively responsible guy and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a real competitor.â&#x20AC;?

Humanitarian will return to Kyrgyzstan By Bill Freeman

News - Havelock - Brooke Wrightly will write a second chapter to her “amazing and rewarding” humanitarian adventure in the beautiful yet achingly poor country of Kyrgyzstan. Wrightly of Havelock will join up again with John and Julie Wright of Norwood and a team of selfless aid workers in Tokmok, the capital city of the former Soviet state. She will arrive September 15 for a threeweek stay working once again in baby orphanages and teaching English to youth and adults. She spent seven weeks last year in the troubled but strategically important central Asian country and called the experience “eye-opening” and “very different” from her work in Zambia as part of a World Vision mission. “It is a beautiful country completely surrounded by mountains,” Wrightly said at the 1st Havelock Scouts yard sale where she held a fund-raising raffle for her trip.

During her last journey Wrightly helped out in baby orphanages, some very large but two stand out; one called Bakut, with eight boys and girls and Day Springs with ten little girls.

“They think we’re Americans and that we’re all rich. I am trying to teach them a little bit about Canada.” “They were more like family homes with fewer kids and a family looking after them.” She visited two or three times a week to help feed, change and play with the children. Wrightly also taught English to children and adults in a learning centre and at the International University. “Everyone wants to learn about Canada,” she said, although they have to remind people that Canada and the United States are separate

countries. “They think we’re Americans and that we’re all rich. I am trying to teach them a little bit about Canada.” Wrightly has reflected on her experiences of working with people in need in Zambia and now Kyrgyzstan and speaks of the contrasts. “It really was different to the Africa trip. In Africa everybody was poor [but] I didn’t find a difference between men and women, everyone was equal. There is a huge difference between men and women in Kyrgyzstan especially the young coming out of the orphanages.” The mortality rate for youth coming out of the orphanages is very high, she says, because far too many have “no life skills and nowhere to go.” “Two very different experiences but both very rewarding.” The Wrights’ work with orphans, efforts to find sponsors to help children extend their schooling and building renovations is heroic and selfless, she says.

They don’t distinguish between faith groups. “If you need help they are there to help. I don’t consider myself a missionary; I’m a humanitarian and that is why I like to work with them.” Wrightly first met the Wrights at the Norwood Fair where they had a booth and learned more about their work. One current project is establishing transition houses for youth where they’d live for two years acquiring life and job skills “so they have a stake in the world instead of having to go into prostitution or crime to survive.” “Bride-napping” is common and Wrightly says she watched the Wrights save one young girl from that fate by finding sponsors to underwrite continued schooling in a nursing program at a baby orphanage. The tragedy is that thousands aren’t so lucky. “If you let it, it can be overwhelming, the need. You really have to stop and Brooke Wrightly of Havelock will make a second trip to Kyrgyzstan this month. It will be her first time [say to yourself] ‘I am help- travelling alone. The trip includes a 15-hour stop-over in Moscow where she is not allowed to leave ing the one in front of me.’” the airport. Photo: Bill Freeman

Cousineau wants her to do, her message being, “Whatever you are doing isn’t good. Stop it now.” He told his rapt audience, “If I don’t pay attention to her, the next thing that will happen is that she will escalate her behaviour to the point where it becomes absolutely unavoidable—I need to deal with her.” The dog has the ability to sense changes in Cousineau and responds immediately to them. Since Thai arrived, Cousineau’s life has turned—his health has improved and his dependence on medications has decreased. Realizing the impact a service dog has had on his life, and knowing there were a lot of vets like him who were suffering, he decided to do what he could to raise funds to make 50 service dogs available to 50 veterans in need of such support. To that end, on August 1, he and Thai started out on a 1,000-kilometre walk from

For his involvement in this rescue, Cousineau was awarded the Star of Courage, Canada’s second highest award for gallantry to be given in peace time, with other crew members being recognized as well. The event left him with post-traumatic stress disorder, a condition he has been battling ever since. Although there has been much information circulated regarding PTSD, Cousineau told the group that even today, what it was and how it affected people was still misunderstood. He outlined what he referred to as a “laundry list” of symptoms, among them depression, anxiety, panic, addiction, suicidal ideology, anger, rage and night terrors. He told the group, “Over the course of about 26 years, at various points, I have dealt with pretty much every one of those in some way shape or form … if it doesn’t sound like a pretty place, it really isn’t.” He continued, “In 2006, I had what was described as a major psychotic break.” He spent much of his time from then on in a ten- by 12-foot garden shed. He recalled, “I would get up in the morning and go out there and spend my day out there alone. It had one window and one door and I could watch both of them. That was how life was.” Things turned around for Cousineau in 2012 when he learned that Thai, a yellow lab service dog in Kansas was available and that he had been accepted to receive her. Not in a position to get her, he reached out to the Legion for assistance. On returning home with his new dog things started to change dramatically. He provided a list of things Thai has done for him, one relating to his night terrors. He recalled, “At 4:30 every morning I would wake up, the sheets would be soaked, I’d be flailing around … that’s how my day started. It had been like that for about 26 years.” Thai can sense the Canadian veteran Medric Cousineau, his service dog Thai, and his wife, Jocelyn, made a stop at the Marmora Fair to raise aware- onset of the terrors and, with her “wet ness about the plight of veterans suffering from post traumatic stress disorder and the difference the dog has made in his life. nose, brown eyes and floppy ears,” They later stopped at the Marmora Legion where he spoke about his journey to raise funds so other vets suffering from PTSD gently wakes him up before they progmight also access the help of a service dog.

One of the most important things Thai does for Cousineau relates to intelligent disobedience interrupted behaviour (IDIB).

Gallery exposes the real truth about artists News - Trenton - Featured artist at the Arts Quinte West Gallery for the month of August was Edith Arndt-Kleisch. Each month the gallery has a section where the artist can display several paintings or sculptures. “Edith works in mixed media and even sand,” said gallery curator of the day Henry Mitchell. “She has even started working with soapstone.” Edith had a spot at Tomasso’s restaurant during the Arts Up Front in July along with Frankford artist Christine Pellatti. Coming up in the gallery on September 13 is Creative Boost, an artists’ social group where they can share inspiration and ideas. Cost is $4 for members and $5.50 for non-members in the gallery from 6:30 to 9 p.m. which includes refreshments. All are welcome! Doors Open Quinte West will also include the gallery on September 14 from 10 a.m. To 4 p.m. “We will probably have a lot more paintings on display then,” Henry said. Henry has two paintings at the gallery currently, Edwardian Innocence and a Seascape in two blocks. “I wanted to be a fighter pilot when I was young,” Henry said. “But my one eye wasn’t strong enough, so I got a job typesetting and later in design. I started painting part-time, building figures from my computer with Photoshop and adding my own details.” He added blue flowers to the hat of Edwardian Innocence, building his model from a fashion design on the computer. “She looks very sweet,” he said with a smile. “But one side of her bum is sticking out. She many not be as innocent as she seems.” Henry said he likes painting bright colours and also some abstract. “Abstract painting is such good fun,” he says. “There is no plan. You just paint what your brush does.” Henry was born in Dundee on the east coast of Scotland. He came to Canada in 1963 when he had just been married a year. They lived in Toronto for 20 years, then he got a job in Calgary and

finally moved to Stirling and then Trenton. “We lived in a big Victorian house with a wraparound porch on Station Street in Stirling ,” he said. “We would often sit out on the porch and have a glass of wine. People thought we were

rich! The reality was that we had no money at all!” Now they have a beautiful house (c. 1835) at 13 McGill Street in Trenton where he has a studio and displays his paintings all over the walls. “Come and visit any time,”

he said. Henry has very little art training but did take classes at Bridgewater which he describes as “wonderful.” He likes to paint landscapes and ladies. “Even my landscapes have a lady in them,” he says. “I painted a nude once but most people were

too shy to look at it.” He also paints trees and seascapes. “I remember the sea from where I lived in Scotland,” he says. “As a boy, I would go and walk around. It was a lovely place.”

He says he hasn’t been back to Scotland for quite a few years, but would love to go. You can find Henry at the Trenton Scottish-Irish Festival on September 7, displaying his work and dreaming of his homeland.

Rug Hooking Club to host third annual demonstration

By Sue Dickens

Lifestyles - Campbellford Dozens of rug hookers will be descending on Old Mill Park here Monday, September 9, for their price ofthird an annual a rug hooking demonstration. Among them will be Marilyn Pollock, president of the Camp-

bellford Rug Hookers Club. “We invited rug hookers from Belleville to Cobourg to Port Hope, all the ones in our district, District #2, [of the Ontario Rug Hookers Association],” she said. Seven clubs have been invited to join in the event which starts at 10 a.m. and continues until about

4 p.m. “We’re hoping for at least 50 hookers,” she added. “Everybody brings a little bit of show and tell, their rugs and we have a lunch too,” she explained. “It’s about hooking and friendship … but it’s also about showing

people what we do,” she added. The club hopes people will drop by the park to see just what rug hooking is all about and meet the rug hookers. The Campbellford club has 62 members and they get together in the hall at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church every Monday afternoon, “even on holidays,” from 1 to 4 p.m. “We invite everyone to come and see what we are doing,” said Pollock. That invitation applies to not only the demonstration but to their weekly get-together. Pollock has been a member of the Campbellford club since 1985. “I just like creating, working on a picture, but there are also patterns available,” she noted. She likes to take cross-stitch patterns, enlarge them and do them on her rug. “You have to like doing rug

hooking. You need patience.” It takes Pollock about a year to do one of her rugs. “We work on them at rug hooking meetings,” she explained. Her largest rug measures about 24 inches by 30 inches. But she knows there are much larger ones, some that reach six feet in diameter. “They talk a very long time to make,” she said. Pollock has about seven of her rugs at her home, some on the floor and one is draped over the back of her couch. “I do them mostly for myself and my family,” she said. But she also donated one of her rugs to be raffled off to raise money for the Campbellford Memorial Hospital. One of the oldest members of the club is Campbellford resident Doris Potts. She turns 100 years young in September and has been a mem-

ber of the club since 1982. “I got interested in rug hooking from a neighbour of mine, Leone Wilson, who lived near us at Menie where my husband [Frank] and I ran a country store,” she said. “It is so beautiful and it’s relaxing and you feel as if you are doing something worthwhile,” she explained. “And you feel that you have something that is useful when you are finished,” she added, noting that her mother used to do rug hooking. “I have a good many on the wall and I walk on some,” she added with a laugh. “Oriental designs are my favourite.” Potts also enjoys latch hooking and crocheting. “But I don’t like knitting,” she admitted. Potts hopes to be at the demonstration next Monday.

Five survivors put a face to the mammography campaign their poster. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cancer can be beaten, early detection is the key,â&#x20AC;? states Milne, in an excerpt from her comment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mammography is the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;gold standardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; in detecting breast cancer and the earlier it is detected the better chance of survival for women,â&#x20AC;? states Findlay. Simmons, whose story of survival was featured in The Trent Hills Independent recently, asks people to support the campaign â&#x20AC;&#x153;for this life-saving machine.â&#x20AC;?

By Sue Dickens

News - Campbellford - Five women, all breast cancer survivors, have not only faced their disease, they are now putting a face to it with a poster campaign. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all part of a ďŹ nal push to the effort to raise money for a digital mammography machine needed at Campbellford Memorial Hospital. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been setting aside money for close to a year now and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re at about the half-way mark,â&#x20AC;? said John Russell, executive director of the hospital foundation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of the top items for the hospital for this ďŹ scal year.â&#x20AC;? The cost is $700,000. Hopes are the rest of the money will be raised by November, before the traditional Angels of Care campaign gets under way. The fund raising received a big kickstart with a donation of $175,000 from the John M. & Bernice Parrott Foundation of Belleville and another $9,000 was raised at the Trent Hills Relay for Life event last year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was trying to come up with ways to raise the proďŹ le of the digital mammography campaign so I said why donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t we try to get some breast cancer survivors who are willing to appear and step forward to kind of be the face of the campaign,â&#x20AC;? said Russell. The women who appear on the posters include Pat Fox, Jan Findlay, Linda Milne, Angela Simmons and Bev Towns. Now itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to roll out the posters throughout the community to try to reach the campaign goal. Each of the women has a comment on

Posters will be appearing in the community of Trent Hills with the faces and comments of five women, all breast cancer survivors, to publicly launch the final push to wrap up the fund-raising campaign for a digital mammography machine for CMH.

For Dr. Glenn Garneys, chief radiologist at the hospital, the digital mammography machine is vital. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I can tell you from ďŹ rst-hand experience that a diagnosis of cancer is a always life-shattering. The worry. The stress. The upheaval of your normal life and routines â&#x20AC;Ś but early detection can make a life-saving difference,â&#x20AC;? he is quoted as stating in a recent mailout to donors.
