Business prospects are booming in Quinte West By Kate Everson

Trenton High School marks JFK’s death.

Please see photos on page 14.

News - Quinte West - The business prospects in this city are looking good. “McKesson Canada’s construction of its facility is on track and they are looking at starting operations in the spring of 2014,” says Linda Lisle, Quinte West’s Manager of Economic Development. She says the huge facility on Hamilton Road will be advertising job openings in early winter and is still conducting evalu-

ations on its manpower needs. The company attended the recent Career Fair on November 14 and can be reached at www. mckesson.ca for information. It recently consolidated its other operations in Mississauga, Ottawa and Chatham as well as one on Sidney Street in Belleville to form a 520,000 square foot distribution centre for medical supplies at this location. “They will be hiring in phases,” Lisle added.

Lisle reported to Quinte West’s economic development and revitalization committee that the city recently sold 10 acres of land in the North Murray Industrial Park to Twin City Rentals and Development. The proposed site will be used for both retail and warehousing space, with flexible unit sizes to attract new business or allow existing businesses to expand. Committee member Glenn Kozak asked if there is any more land in North Murray

or if it is all sold out. Lisle said there are 69 acres available and the city is showcasing 60 acres of that. “We are working with a few inquiries,” she said. Lisle added there is land available at Trenmur Lake but it is not serviced. Committee member and Councillor Bob Wannamaker noted there is a 50-acre parcel of land the city should pick up off Please see “Business” on page 5

News - Quinte West – Plastic wrap on the mural was flapping in the cold wind and people were shivering as the snow clouds gathered overhead. But that didn’t stop the excitement as the community mosaic mural was finally unveiled on November 23. “This is another great day in Quinte West,” said Mayor John Williams. The mural contains over 4,000 pieces woven together in a mural on the side of the Community Police Building on Dundas Street West, representing photographs and $30,000 in contributions from groups, businesses, families and individuals collected by a dedicated committee working with the Trent Port Historical Society. The design was completed by artist Chuck Street from Prescott who did a similar mural there. “I’m proud of what has been done,” Williams said. “It represents the spirit of the city.” Chuck Street said the work archives a magnificent past which will be represented here into the future. “It’s like a time capsule,” he said. Committee organizer Dave Shoniker noted the pictures in the mural include loved ones who passed away or new babies just born. “It’s a people’s mural,” he said. The official unveiling was done by three generations of O’Malleys, including Kiera Rose, her father Ryan and

News - Quinte West – The city is working on converting its 2,500 street lights to LED technology. “The majority of these street lights are either high pressure sodium or old mercury vapour technology,â€? said Chris Angelo, director of Public Works and Environmental Services. The city is working with LAS/RealTerm Energy as a provider of competitively priced and sustainable business services for Ontario municipalities and the public sector. It helps its customers “save money, make money and build capacity.â€? “In addition to reducing power consumption, LEDs reduce maintenance costs because they can last three to ďŹ ve times longer than high pressure sodium or metal halide ďŹ xtures,â€? Angelo notes. “LEDs also provide improved light quality for residents which has been conďŹ rmed by Ontario pilot studies.â€? Energy costs in the city in 2012 were $334,742, maintenance costs average over ďŹ ve years was $89,513 a year. A simple replacement of LEDs for recumbent ďŹ xtures would result in a savings of about 61 per cent in energy and a reduction in maintenance by up to 90 per cent. Greater savings are possible after the full system is audited. Angelo estimates the annual energy costs for LED will be $129,098 plus maintenance of $8,951 for 2,560 street lights in one year. The total project costs are $1.5 million. The payback period before any ďŹ nancing is 4.63 years. Staff is recommending the city borrow the required funds (up to $1.5 million) for a term of 10 years from Infrastructure Ontario. Currently, the city can borrow funds at 3.2 per cent and the yearly cost of the loan is $180,000. Sean Neely, president of RealTerm Energy Corporation, says, “It’s no wonder that most experts agree that almost all street lights in North America will convert to LEDs over the next decade.â€?

Trenton Club 105 plans Christmas dinner for single seniors By Kate Everson

Events - Quinte West – Single seniors are invited to a free Christmas dinner at the Trenton Seniors Club 105 on December 14 between 12 and 3 p.m. “All they have to do is register,” says president Harold Taylor. “We need to know how many are coming.” This is the third year the club has put on a dinner for local seniors who have nowhere else to go. It includes a traditional turkey dinner with all the trimmings and plenty of socializing with other seniors in the community. “We had 200 attend last year,” says 1st Vice President Joyce Aucoin. “It’s an opportunity to get out of the house and socialize.” Club 105 president Harold Taylor and 1st Vice President Joyce Aucoin are getting into the Christmas The club welcomes any local sespirit.

niors to enjoy the Christmas event, and also invites volunteers of any age to come and help before, during and after the dinner. “We could especially use some high school students to lift tables and help set up,” Taylor says. Aucoin adds they can get credit for those hours for their community service. The club welcomes volunteers to help decorate the hall and set up the tree, serve dinner and clean up. They are also hoping someone will show up to play the piano during dinner. Several members of local service clubs often come and help out. “It’s all donated food,” Taylor adds. “It’s a real community event.” The club is holding another dinner this Saturday, November 30 with beef

or chicken entrees as a fund-raiser to help pay expenses for the building. The dinner cost $12 at the door (between 4:30 and 6:30 p.m.) or $10 in advance. “We need to do a lot of things on the building,” Taylor says. “We have applied to get a grant to upgrade the washrooms and make them all accessible, but it takes awhile to hear back. Any help is appreciated.” The clubhouse office on Bay Street is open Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. for tickets or information. The club is always looking for new members and anyone over 50 is welcome to sign up and get involved with the many activities happening there. A full floor of shuffleboard players on Tuesday afternoon was an indication that seniors are happy to stay active.

RCAF Road, which would make a nice addition to the industrial park. Lisle said she will have to look at their 2015-16 budget for acquiring more land. Lisle added the city is working with the Ministry of Economic Development, Trade and Employment to meet the requirements of having an Investment Ready Certified Site by the province. “This program will provide the city with a significant amount of exposure to site selectors internationally through the Ministry’s marketing division,” she noted. Lisle showed several short videos by Crowe Productions about Quinte West, which are designed to highlight business, tourism and special events while promoting the quality of life in the community. Tourism coordinator Jennifer Rushlow gave a report on regional tourism. She will be working with Anne Munro, executive director of the Bay of Quinte Tourism Council, in a committee to focus on a strategic plan. Rushlow noted that Jaclyn Grimmon, the former Manager of Recreation & Tourism Services for Quinte West, recently resigned from her position to take another job in Kingston, but will still be representing the Bay of Quinte Region at this planning session in January. Rushlow reported that Quinte West tourism is included in The Great Waterway surveys taken this summer at the visitors’ kiosk at the Ramada Inn and the Chamber of Commerce. The interests of those surveyed included Ontario Parks, wineries, events, museums, hiking, fishing and boating.

Plan dollars to purchase alternative signage that would replace temporary mobile signs. From the staff report on the revised sign bylaw the committee agree the following items should be reviewed: If the message on a sign has changed for a new business, a permit will be required. Only certain arterial roads are eligible for billboard and general advertising signs. General advertising signs are prohibited in the Urban Service areas defined in the Official Plan. The committee added that advertising on someone else’s property is prohibited. Paul Whitley shared with committee a current concern with a banner being placed at the old city hall building. Staff is to follow up. He added that the focus should be concentrated on portable signs and banners along with a control of messaging. Chair Little suggested that the owner of Dollar Signs and Company, David McCue, be invited to a future Marketing/Signage

and Promotion sub-committee meeting. This would give him more background information as to why the committee is pursuing change. The staff was also directed to arrange a meeting with CAO Charlie Murphy to discuss the revised proposed amendments. Christina Edwards-Scott presented the committee with a mural proposal from Katrien Reed, visual art teacher at St. Paul Secondary School. She said the owner of the building at 23 Balsam Street in downtown Trenton had approached staff for approval regarding the concept and design for this project. “This is not a city initiative and the city will not be contributing financially to this project,” she added. A draft copy of the images will be forwarded to the committee. Chair Whitley added that staff communicate with the building owner or the school representatives with respect to the types of paint that should be used that meet with the environmental needs of the project.

We finally did it, Happy Wife and kids = Happy Life NO DOUBT CONVERTING MY OIL FURNACE TO GAS PAID OFF WITH $2000 CASH IN MY POCKET BEFORE X-MAS And you can too. Let me explain. I previously wrote the following; Here’s what happened; upon renewing my Home Insurance recently, I found myself being asked politely if I can change my oil furnace to gas. I know I am not alone. So, doing a little research, I found out that there are many reasons to do so. Let me name a few; 1. Natural gas or propane is reason enough to save on energy, I understand it can be as much as 70%/year as well as provide my family with a very efficient heating and cooling system. 2. Furthermore, the Ont. Power Auth.(opa) allow up to $650 in an incentive program (with eligibility). Then a co-worker told me about Access HVAC in Belleville, ON. They offered him a financing plan under $100/mth with no payments for the first 12 mths (oac). 3. They also provided him with an additional rebate incentive which once combined with the OPA was up to $2000. 4. Apparently they converted everything for him the same day. Plus my co-worker had no gas in the area, No Problem, Access HVAC set everything with propane. My wife told me, “what are you waiting for, call them now!” She said she wants those incentives to help us with X-Mas. They guaranteed us the install before Santa even shows up this year. Their Guarantee Before Santa Install Program is still available till including December, 2013. Call them as I did at 613-689-7058. Have a Wonderful Warm Winter as my family will.

News - Quinte West – The city’s proposed new sign bylaw is not a popular one. An Open House was held at city hall recently to get public opinions on the amendments. “The feedback from the Open House along with the results of the online survey were not very positive,” reported signage subcommittee chair Brad Little at the economic development and revitalization committee. “The committee will have to overcome significant hurdles in order to pass the proposed changes.” He added that the city and the Chamber of Commerce must be in full agreement before moving forward on this issue. Committee chair Paul Whitley suggested that rather than a total re-write, the committee consider a few key concerns and hope for some wins. Brad Little asked that the amendment proposed regarding sandwich boards remain as is. He recommended the city promote businesses in using Community Improvement

Battle of Quinte West will feature NHL greats By Ross Lees

Events - The Battle of Quinte West, scheduled for Dec. 4 at the RCAF Flyers Arena, recently received some good news about some hot new attractions for this year’s event. Former professional hockey players Peter Conacher, Jim Morrison, Ron Hurst and Ivan “the Terrible” Irwin, as well as coach Bill Purcell will be at the game for the ceremonial puck drop. They will then be on hand to meet with the fans and sign autographs, according to organizers Cpl. Jason Briand and John McDonald. “We’re really happy to have these legends of hockey coming to the Battle of Quinte West,” Cpl. Briand stated. The former professional stars will do a tour of CFB Trenton and have dinner at the base before attending the second annual Battle of Quinte West at RCAF Flyers Arena starting at 7 p.m. on Dec. 4. Peter Conacher’s professional career stretched from 1951 to 1966 when he played with the Chicago Blackhawks, the New York Rangers, and the Toronto Maple Leafs. He was also a World Champion with the Belleville McFarlands in 1959 in Prague, Czechoslovakia, one of the greatest pieces of history in Canadian hockey. He was recently elected into the Bobby Orr Hall of Fame. Jim Morrison’s pro career spanned from 1951 to 1973, in which time he played for the Boston Bruins, the Toronto Maple Leafs, the Detroit Red Wings, the New York Rangers and the Pittsburgh

Penguins. He was a National Hockey League (NHL) All-Star in 1955, 1956, and 1957 and was the defensive partner of the legendary Tim Horton. Ron Hurst spent a five-year NHL career with the Toronto Maple Leafs from 1955 to 1960. Ivan “The Terrible” Irwin skated from 1949 to 1966 with such storied franchises as the Montreal Canadiens and the New York Rangers. He was a well-known and respected enforcer through three decades in the NHL. Bill Purcell was York University’s hockey coach from 1965 to1972 and the OIAA 1969-1970 Coach of the Year. He is credited with establishing York University’s Yeomen hockey program in 1961 and bringing it to national acclaim and notoriety. He also championed the team’s relocation from outdoor play at Glendon to the New York Arena, locally known as the Ice Palace. He has also coached several OHL and AHL teams and is known as “The Coach.” Quinte region hockey fans will get a chance to see these legends in person while watching an entertaining hockey game between the Ontario Junior Hockey League Trenton Golden Hawks and the RCAF Flyers as they endeavor to raise funds for the Afghanistan Repatriation Memorial, which is located at Bain Park. Tickets are only $10 and can be purchased at Smylie’s Your Independent Grocer, the Military Family Resource Centre (MFRC), or any Trenton Golden Hawks home game.

News - Quinte West - The Kente Kiwanis Club generously sponsored two youth from Quinte West Youth Centre to attend a Key Leadership Camp in Arden on November 2. Justin Riga, 15, and Taylor Weese, 14 were selected to attend the camp where they participated in a weekend full of activities that enhance group and individual leadership qualities in youth. This was Justin’s second year attending the weekend in Arden, and this year he returned as a facilitator for all the firstyear attendees. Justin speaks highly of his experience in helping to organize and lead activities for the weekend. He

was most excited to meet a friend there from Oshawa. The two leaders plan on staying in touch. Taylor attended the camp for the first time this year. She says the highlight was that “everyone was accepted and no one judged others.” She said that she participated in all activities. “I really learned that it only takes one person to make a big difference.” She said they did several leadership activities that demonstrated this and it was powerful. Both teens would like to thank club president Paul Bowers for sponsoring them for this experience. Paul says, “The Kente Kiwanis loves to support children and youth.” He is glad the youth learned a great deal from the experience and indicated that they may sponsor four youth next year with Taylor and Justin returning as facilitators. Paul commented that the Trenton Kiwanis club also sponsored youth from Trenton and they are hoping to get all the teens together and create a “Key Club” of leaders here in Trenton. Taylor and Justin have been invited to speak at a Kiwanis meeting in December about their experience. The Quinte West Youth Centre manager, Connie Nye-Kaley, is proud of these two members and look forward to their developing leadership within the Centre as well and the Centre promotes “youth led” activities and programs.

Iran and the US: Neither blind nor stupid This traveller is confused

Editorial - “We are not blind, and I don’t think we are stupid,” said US Secretary of State John Kerry in response to fierce Israeli criticism after the first round of talks about Iran’s nuclear program earlier this month failed to reach a deal. Now the deal is done, and Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu is even harsher in his condemnation of Kerry’s handiwork. “Israel has many friends and allies,” said Gwynne Dyer Netanyahu, “but when they’re mistaken, it’s my duty to speak out. What was achieved last night in Geneva (November 24) is not a historic agreement, it was a historic mistake. Today the world has become a much more dangerous place because the most dangerous regime in the world took a significant step towards obtaining the world’s most dangerous weapon.” What he meant was that the interim agreement implicitly recognises Iran’s right to enrich uranium for peaceful uses. But that right is already enshrined in the Non-Proliferation Treaty, which Iran has signed, and nobody ever thought that Iran was really going to renounce it. What was at issue was whether it would enrich its uranium to “weapons grade”, 90 percent pure and make nuclear bombs. The “Plan of Action” signed by Iran, the United States, Russia, Britain, France, Germany and the European Union ensures that it will not, at least for the next six months. All uranium enrichment above five percent is to be halted, and Iran’s entire stockpile of 20 percent enriched material, the potential feedstock for a “dash” to weapons-grade material, is to be diluted or converted to a form not suitable for further enrichment. Iran is not to install any more centrifuges (the machines used to enrich material), and large numbers of the existing banks of centrifuges are to be left inoperable. Even Iran’s stockpile of 3.5% enriched uranium (for use in nuclear power reactors) is to remain the same between now and the end of the six-month period. And there will be no further work done on the Arak reactor, which might give Iran plutonium, and thus a second route to a nuclear bomb. Iran will also allow more intrusive inspections by International Atomic Energy Agency officials, including daily access to the key enrichment sites at Natanz and Fordow. All it gets in return is $7 billion worth of relief (about $100 per Iranian) on the sanctions that are crippling its economy. All the main sanctions will stay in place until a final agreement has been signed

– if it is – six months from now. Iran can therefore make no further progress towards nuclear weapons while the detailed negotiations continue, if that is actually what Tehran ever had in mind. Yet Israeli officials are talking as if the United States has been both blind and stupid. On Sunday, Israeli Intelligence Minister Yuval Steinitz said that, “Israel cannot participate in the international celebration, which is based on Iranian deception and the world’s self-delusion.” And Naftali Bennett, Israel’s minister of trade and industry, warned: “If in five years a nuclear suitcase explodes in New York or Madrid, it will be because of the agreement that was signed this morning.” This is so far over the top that you wonder whether the speakers even believe it themselves. Israel has talked itself into this obsession with Iran’s alleged nuclear weapons project – Israeli sources have been warning that Iran is two years away from a bomb at regular intervals for the past twenty years but the constant talk about it has also served to draw attention away from Israel’s settlement policy in the Palestinian territories. Israel’s basic position is that the Iranian regime is entirely composed of evil terrorist fanatics who should never be allowed to have refined uranium of any sort. The only recourse is therefore to tighten the sanctions more and more until Iran’s entire economy and government crumble and a completely different sort of people emerge from somewhere to take over the country. No deal can be a good deal. Israel’s leaders are dismayed that they can no longer keep their allies and friends pinned in this extreme position, but endlessly quoting the ravings of former Iranian Prime Minister Mahmoud Ahmedinejad is not enough. They would have to demonstrate that Iran actually intends to attack Israel, and they cannot. So eventually their allies just moved without them. As Israel’s Finance Minister Yair Lapid told “Time” magazine, “We’ve lost the world’s ear. We have six months, at the end of which we need to be in a situation in which the Americans listen to us the way they used to listen to us in the past.” But the game is not over yet. Israel’s influence in the US Congress is still immense, and its Congressional allies are already talking about heaping more sanctions on Iran (in order to kill the deal, though they don’t admit that). President Obama could veto those new sanctions, of course, but he will find it a lot harder to get Congress to revoke the existing sanctions if the final deal is done six months from now. That’s why Iran gets so little relief from sanctions now in return for its concessions: Obama needs more time to work on Congress. But Israel may still win this tug-of-war.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Finding reality at public meetings Dear Editor, On the rare occasions the prime minister holds a press conference packed with supporters, those likely to ask questions that may embarrass the government are often branded eco-terrorists, socio-terrorists and are barred at the door by security. In like manner the pipeline companies hold their “public consultation meetings” with little room for those opposed. So where to go for a dose of reality? How about Texas farmers? Certainly not on the list of enemies of the state, these landowners, after witnessing dented pipes, damaged coatings etc., raised sufficient ruckus to force the US Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration to issue warning letters to TransCanada of careless installation, not following specifications regarding protecting existing coatings, consistently bad welds resulting in weld failures. In one bad week alone 72% of welds required repairs, the average was about 48%, possibly due to the use of unqualified welders.

It is important to note that the regulator was apparently unaware of any of this until the landowners who will bear the brunt of damage when the line leaks, lobbied them to get involved. This self-regulation is increasingly common, as more and more power is transferred to corporations where maximum profit replaces the public good. How does the above have anything to do with Ontario? This first phase of the XL pipeline built by TransCanada in 2010 is “state of the art” and should be expected to set the standard for eastern pipeline #9 across Ontario. In a hilarious statement, the company predicted one leak in seven years with a total loss of 50 barrels. The reality was 12 leaks in the first year with one in North Dakota alone amounting to 21,000 gallons. This then is what we can expect across the lakes and streams of Ontario. The above information came from a BC news site “The Tyee”. We should be very concerned about our water. Paul Whittaker Gilmour

By Terry Bush Editorial - My wife Mare and I have always had a certain fondness for geography both in school and in our adult lives. That love of geography has transformed itself into a love of travel now that we have the means to do so. While we might not be as worldly as some, we have backpacked through close to 25 countries on six continents as well as every Canadian province except Newfoundland and a number of US states. From our travels we’ve become quite knowledgeable about many parts of the world but it seems we’re not too smart when it comes to cities in our own province. When I turned on the TV on Saturday night and saw nothing but those same old tired programs that seem to have a shelf life longer than a Twinkie, I thought to myself, maybe I’ll watch a Leafs game for an hour until something better comes along. Unfortunately when Ron and Don appeared on my screen, it soon became obvious that there would be no Leafs on my TV unless I rolled back time and watched non-HD television. That wasn’t going to happen because as I’ve said before, we moved out of the dark ages a couple of years ago and bought a new TV and digital receiver. It was now HD or nothing. To do otherwise would be like trying to enjoy the Mona Lisa on newsprint. Try as I might, I couldn’t find the CBC HD Toronto channel I used to have before I gave Bell even more money for new programming. Evidently once you make the leap you can never go back to the way things were. I did have CBC Ottawa in HD but that was only after a very lengthy chat session with a Bell rep who restored at least one CBC HD channel to my programming package. After all, it says you get CBC HD with the most basic package on Bell’s website. So, with the Ottawa game underway in the living room, I headed to the bedroom and called Bell to see what was going on. Of course it took quite a while to actually get to speak to a representative. So long in fact that I thought maybe my call had been inadvertently routed to someone on the other side of the world. When someone finally did turn up on the other end, she was anxious to help solve my problem. After a half hour standing in front of the television adjusting this and that and rebooting the system, she told me I could fix this problem by paying an extra $5 for time shifting. Time shifting! Why on earth would I need time shifting to get the CBC channel in Toronto, I asked. You just do, she answered. Maybe it was because I was standing in front of the wood stove at the time, but I found myself getting a little hot under the collar. Why would I need time shifting when I’m in the same time zone as Toronto and live just a couple of hours away. You can get it for only five dollars, she replied. I have a lingering suspicion that the woman I was speaking with didn’t have any real knowledge of the geography in our home province. My parting words were; in the hour I’ve wasted talking to you, I could have driven half way to Toronto. Considering my “better” package, that cost around 70 bucks per month when I subscribed to it, now costs me closer to $120 with add-ons, I wasn’t about to part with any more money. I’d already missed the first period anyway so we watched something else. Anyone who knows me, knows I’m a bit of a persistent bugger, so I thought I’d give it one more shot on Sunday. This time round I went the live chat route hoping it wouldn’t take me a full hour to achieve absolutely nothing. It didn’t. It only took me 20 minutes to get basically to the same answer as the night before. You need to subscribe to the US time shift package to get CBC Toronto in HD she typed. This is when I really started to get mixed up on my geography. When we were kids, we visited Toronto once a month to see my grandmother. We always went to the CNE each year. We didn’t really give it much thought at the time but apparently we’d crossed a border somewhere on the 401 because according to Bell, Toronto is in the USA. Why else would it be included in a US time shifting package? I told the Bell representative I was chatting with that we were in the same time zone so what would be the point in time shifting 7 p.m. in Toronto to 7 p.m. in Madoc. I understand what you’re saying she said but we’ve changed our packages and that’s the way it is now. Baffling to say the least unless you’re cynical enough to think that this is just one more way Bell is trying to nickel and dime its customers. I can watch television from Los Angeles just by turning on the TV and if I change the channel I can watch PBS in Boston but I can’t watch CBC Toronto without paying an extra five bucks? This is just as bad as having to pick five or six bundles of channels to get the six channels you want. In October, the Harper government announced plans to force TV providers to allow consumers to “pick and choose” individual channels instead of being forced to buy bundles of channels they didn’t want. If that ever happens I’ll be the first to congratulate the Tories. I won’t hold my breath though. The last time I gave accolades to Stephen Harper was when he was in the Arctic promising a deep-water port and new ships to exert our sovereignty over that region. Turned out to be nothing but a photo op. Sounds like I’m either going to have to fork out five bucks or become a Sens fan. And I don’t like the Sens.

Square art returns Council shows support for hydraulic dams on Moira River

)    

By Steve Jessel

News - Belleville - A proposal to construct three hydraulic generators on the Moira River in Belleville was given support by Belleville city council Monday night, and proponents will now move ahead with a bid to the Ontario Power Authority for a renewable energy feed-in-tariff (FIT) contract. “It would be a great project if we could do it on our own, but we need some expertise,� Mayor Neil Ellis said. “I would support buying the whole project.� The application to city council was made by a coalition of three groups; Quinte Conservation, Peterborough Utilities Group and Veridian Connections, and would see three 375 kW to 500 kW generators built at three Quinte Conservation-owned dam sites on the Moira; at the Holgate Dam, the Wishart Dam, and the Lott dam. The technology behind the proposed generators is known as very low head, or VLH generators, and are specifically designed for rivers such as the Moira. Mark Turney, the vice-president of operations for Veridian Connections said that while the technology has been proven effective in Europe, it hasn’t yet caught on in North America. If Bel-

leville were to construct the VLH generators, they would become the first municipality in Canada to do so. All together, the three generators would produce enough electricity to power roughly 500 residences. “It can be used where there isn’t a large head in the river, so you generate power based on how much height differential there is between upstream and downstream,� Turney said. “This technology is designed to operate... where there is very little differential.� As part of the proposal, city council also agreed to

become a 15 per cent stakeholder in the project, an amount equaling roughly $400,000. This municipal support will ensure that the FIT application made by the proponents will be weighted as heavily as possible by the Ontario Power Authority, who use a point system to determine their final decisions. “We expect this project, with City of Belleville involvement... would give us a reasonable chance of receiving a contract offer from the Ontario Power Authority,� said John Wynsma, vice president of generation and

Entertainment - Quinte West – Are you looking to find original gifts this Christmas season? You can’t get much more original than a unique work of locally-created art. From Wednesday, Dec. 4 until Saturday, Dec. 21, The Gallery of Arts Quinte West will host ART2, a show of original, affordable, small works. An opening reception with the artists will be held on Thursday, Dec. 5 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. All are welcome and refreshments will be provided. Members of the local arts organization have been invited to donate one or more works that are exactly 12by12-inches in size.   Works will be available in a variety of media, including acrylic, oil, watercolour, pastel, mixed media, collage, pencil, charcoal, ink, fibre, sculpture, photography, clay, glass and encaustic. The only restriction is that each piece is 12inches square. Each piece will be avail-

The city could expect to see an 8 per cent return on the project, and also included in the agreement is an option for the city to back out without penalty. In total, the project would cost between $9.6 to $11.7 million, depending on the optional installation of rubber dams that would increase production. “Belleville was chosen because they’re already very progressive on the renewable energy front,� Kerney said. “The Moira river presents a very good opportunity for these generators to be installed.� While all city councillors expressed their support of the project, Coun. Egerton Boyce queried if it was possible to own more than just a 15 per cent stake in the project. “I think we’re underselling ourselves at 15 per cent,� he said. Under the terms of the agreement Veridian Connections and Peterborough Utilities Group would each own 42.5 per cent to Belleville’s 15 per cent. Boyce proposed increasing the city share to 25 per cent, but was the only councillor to vote in favour of the amendment. Councillor Taso Christopher expressed caution moving forward as the specifics of the project were only estimates, while Ellis objected to what he called a “hostile takeover� of a proposal that the City of Belleville had been invited to take part in. Ellis also pointed out that the City of Belleville is a 13 per cent stakeholder in Veridian Connections, which increases their overall investment in the project. “We get 15 per cent of the ownership, plus we get 13 per cent of the 42.5 per cent, and I don’t think that was really talked about,� Ellis said. “In reality we’re still owning more than 15 per cent.�


Horticultural Society and Garden Club keeps it green

By Joan Gray, president

Lifestyles - Quinte West - It may be cold but that doesn’t stop gardening from carrying on. While we’re putting our gardens to bed for the winter, we’re planning how to decorate for the Christmas season. October is a great month for collecting greenery; it will keep well outdoors, and the cold autumn rains will keep it fresh. Outdoor containers can be put together in late October or early November, leaving just the final addition of bright decorations for the coldest weather. For natural indoor containers, its best to put them together indoors in December. The past few years the garden club has decorated the window boxes at the Old City Hall and made outdoor containers for sale as a fund raiser. This year, Kathy Bozin, who headed up these projects, is involved with family responsibilities and unable to do this work. There is a great deal of work involved in gathering together all the greenery and putting together the outdoor containers. We just didn’t have anyone who could contribute the time and effort that Kathy put into it. The club did manage

to do the window boxes for Old City Hall, but the Outdoor Container Sale will not be done this year. When the gardens are put to bed for the winter and the Christmas decorating is done, gardeners enjoy the holiday and look forward to browsing seed catalogues and planning gardens for next year. Their January days are spent cosily by the fireplace with catalogues and notebooks. This is a much needed rest for those who will start their own seeds, beginning as early as February 1st. For Trenton Horticultural Society and Garden Club members, Jack and Pat Rumsam, this process includes the planning of our beds at the Trenton Memorial Hospital Atrium and Patio on 2C. Jack and Pat not only start seeds for their own beds, which bloom with color all summer long, but some of the flowers seen in the hospital beds are started in their basement under lights as well. Along with some volunteers from the club, they plant and maintain the hospital beds all season. Throughout the winter months, other club members will be planning their year’s activities. The club maintains the garden

at Victoria Park and a garden in Centennial Park. We have great interest in working with the city on their Community in Blooms project. Working with the city on the Iris and Landscape Awards was a wonderful experience this year, with the city providing the prizes and a reception following the awards, and our club doing the travelling and judging throughout Quinte West. For the first time this year our club was involved with Habitat for Humanity, and we’ll certainly look into that for next

year. Another area of interest the club has is exploring working with the Association for Community Living at their greenhouse. All these things will be planned for during the cold, dark months in anticipation of spring when we can begin our work. Our club is always looking for new members. It definitely isn’t necessary to be an expert gardener to join. The main mandate for the club is to teach the community, so we welcome new members and that opportunity! Gardening offers some-

thing new each day even to the most expert gardener. Learning is what gardening is all about. Those who have very little time, due to job and family responsibilities, are also very welcome. For people who would like to contribute to their community and have some time available, we would love to have you join us at Grace United Church the third Thursday of the month at 7 p.m. For more information please call Joan at 613392-2572 or email trentonhorticulture@ yahoo.ca.

Moira students fundraising for Nicaragua trip By Steve Jessel

News - Belleville - Students at Moira Secondary School in Belleville are preparing for a once-in-a lifetime opportunity next year, but they’re going to need a little help getting there. In March of 2014, a group of roughly eight to ten students from the school’s Global Awareness Club will strap on backpacks and head across the globe to the Central American country of Nicaragua. There they’ll help build a school or similarly community-oriented project with the aid of the Me to We organization, a for-profit organization started by the Kielburger brothers that donates half its profits to Free the Children. The trip won’t come cheap however, as each student will need to raise in the neighborhood of $3,500. “Usually when my family travels we see the tourist side of things, I feel like when we go on this trip we’ll see it from more of a community-based perspective,” said Moira Grade 12 student

and trip participant Mel Novakovic. “We’ve done a lot of fundraisers here where the money goes to Me to We and Free the Children, but we’ve never seen what the money actually goes towards,” added fellow Grade 12

student Tabitha McGuire. “We wanted to see exactly how our contributions have impacted communities.” Novakovic and McGuire are the two students who initially put out feelers to a number of different organizations to

gauge if the trip was possible, eventually settling on Me to We as they felt it was one of the more reliable and safety-conscious groups that conduct similar visits. The two girls will spend roughly eight days on a community project work site, and McGuire said she thinks it will have a lasting impact on how the students can positively impact their own communities in the future. “I feel pretty lucky growing up in Canada and I just wanted to see what it’s like in other countries,” she said. “It’s not like we’re just giving money to them, we’re actually bringing back skills to be able to continue what we’ve learned there, back in our communities.” Though teacher Bill Jackson is not involved with the trip, he said it was an admirable effort on the students part and agreed that it presented a fantastic learning opportunity for everyone involved. “I think it’s a great opportunity for students to learn some leadership skills and leadership qualities,” he said. “They’re going to a place that needs

some help, so obviously the people there are going to benefit, but I really look at it from the point of view of the kids, and I think it’s going to be an amazing, once-in-a-lifetime learning opportunity for them.” While the students have raised about $1,500 so far for their trip, they have a long ways to go. In an effort to make a dent in the cost, students from the Global Awareness Club have agreed to donate a portion of funds raised from their annual Ten Thousand Villages Sale, which takes place this weekend, to the trip. From Friday, Nov. 29 to Sunday, Dec. 1, Moira Secondary School will host the sale, which features fair trade items from across the world on display. Exotic foodstuffs, arts and crafts, jewellery, books, Christmas decorations and toys are just a few of the items that will be on display during the sale, which is hosted in partnership with the Ten Thousand Villages store in Picton. The sale takes place from 2:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 29; from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday; and from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday.

News - Belleville - Belleville Police are turning to the public for assistance in helping identify suspects in an armed robbery investigation at Loyalist College on November 21. At approximately 10:15 p.m. on November 21, Belleville Police were dispatched to the college in response to a possible robbery. Upon arriving, police learned that four males entered a residence wearing dark clothing and disguises. These males robbed several occupants of their personal property. The suspects fled the residence on foot. According to a press release, Belleville Police believe the suspects were in possession of firearms during the offense, although Deputy Chief Paul VanderGraaf would not confirm these reports. Parts of the college were placed on lockdown in response to the investigation. The Belleville Police Service Emergency Response Team, OPP Eastern Ontario Tactical Response Unit, and the OPP K-9 Unit were dispatched to search the area, and were able to recover some of the stolen property. Forensic Identification Unit and the Technical Crime Unit are being utilized in the review of

By John Campbell

Brighton Councillor Craig Kerr told Northumberland County council that there is “widespread support� among municipalities to cut costs in the delivery of services but not through amalgamation. Photo: John Campbell

and its municipalities could undertake since the last round of amalgamations that took place in 2000-2001. Those unions caused “upheaval� and achieved little if any of the cost savings that had been projected, he said. Kerr warned that if county council didn’t remove reference to municipal restructuring in its request to the CAO’s committee, “the concerned municipalities may very well feel compelled to instruct their CAOs to not participate in such discussions. Clearly that is not a desirable option.� Hamilton Township Mayor Mark Lovshin, the mover of the motion approved by the county October 16, said amalgamation is really “a moot issue for this term of council� because of the time it would require to implement. “I wasn’t expecting a formal report dealing with just amalgamation,� but to have it included as “the lowest priority,� he said, “a line or two saying that this would be something we’d look at ... 10 or 15 years from now (after) all the other alternatives have been looked at. There was no idea

that we were going to amalgamate.� Lovshin said the CAOs will take into account what the municipalities have said and “know politically it’s not going to pass.� Alnwick-Haldimand Mayor Harvey McDonald thanked Lovshin for “getting this out on the table because somewhere along the line we have to talk about it.� He said municipalities “cannot sustain the quality of life� they currently enjoy without “a better plan� in place because individually they lack the resources and will need to share what they have “in order to survive.� Cobourg Mayor Gil Brocanier noted that last month’s resolution was amended at his council’s request to say lower tier municipalities would be asked for their input before any decision was made affecting local governance. The CAOs “will be providing a list of areas in which there could be opportunities for cost savings,� he said. But Macmillan remained steadfast in speaking out against not doing as the majority of municipalities requested. “You guys are stomping on our democracy today; I think it’s absolutely shameful,� Macmillan said. But after the vote was taken with his being the lone one opposed, Macmillan said the five municipalities could still get their wish by instructing their CAOs not to participate in any talk of amalgamation in preparing a report. “And that effectively will silence this issue once and for all,� he said. “It’s unfortunate it had to come to this.�

News - Northumberland – Five municipalities have gone on record opposing any discussions of changes in municipal governance in order to save money but Northumberland County refused to take the long-term option off the table last week. Instead of endorsing the resolutions passed by Brighton, Trent Hills and the townships of Cramahe, Hamilton and Alnwick-Haldimand, county council voted Nov. 20 to simply refer their demands to the CAOs committee for “consideration� in putting together an information report on ways to share services and cut costs. Warden Hector Macmillan, mayor of Trent Hills, was livid his colleagues would “pay no attention� to what the majority of the county’s seven municipalities wanted done and “bulldoze on through anyway ... If we’re going to continue with this it flies right in the face of our democracy.� The CAO’s committee was asked last month by the county to prepare an informational report by next March on what can be done “to achieve more cost effective municipal government� across Northumberland. One of the options identified for discussion was amalgamation (single tier government, East and West Northumberland, or clusters of municipalities). Attending council as a delegation, Brighton Councillor Craig Kerr said there is “widespread support� among municipal governments to deliver services together at less cost but not for amalgamation. It “will do nothing in the short term for cost containment,� and, in fact, “has the potential to increase costs significantly,� he said. Kerr pointed out the CAOs are already busy helping to put together a county official plan, working on next year’s budget, and preparing for the 2014 municipal elections – projects “over and above their already significant workloads� – so to ask them to take on drafting a report “of such magnitude and complexity ... is unreasonable.� Kerr noted county engaged a consulting firm and a senior public servant to help work on the official plan, which is “far less complex and contentious than any discussions of governance. “Yet council did not see fit to assign the same type of resources� to a matter that “represents one of the most significant adventures� Northumberland

Community Mosaic Mural unveiled in Trenton

Continued from page 3

grandfather Chuck. The side of the building was originally a mural that had been painted by a local artist but had deteriorated over the years and the wall itself was in need of repair. Members of the Trent Port Historical Society worked with a committee that went to service clubs and businesses as well as the base to get photographs and donations

for the project. The mural is 64 feet wide and 14 feet high consisting of 17 panels. The 58 numbered mosaic zones are on a map where donors can find the pictures of their family or group. The project was started in 2012. The film strip that goes along the mural includes historic local sights including the Bleasdell Boulder, Murray Canal, Farley House, George’s Church, Dufferin School, GilCentral Bridge, Bata Shoe, St. bert Hotel, British Chemical plant, Power Dam, Hollywood North, Pearl Buttons, Gilmour Lumber, Sifter, Frankford aerial view 1990, Firhurst, Trenton Cold Storage, downtown Trenton, Portia, Trenton Town Hall 1861, Even James Trenton Cooperage 1931, Fire Hall, bridges, Bleeker ferry, covered bridge, swing bridge, Montrose Inn, munitions plant, theatre, Appledene trucks, canal The mural is unveiled to reveal a Community Mosaic. tug trains and portraits of honour.

Students learn to save lives with defibrillators By Steve Jessel

News - Students at Centennial Secondary School in Belleville had a potentially life-saving experience this past week, and soon, more than 1,600 students from across the Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board, the Algonquin and Lakeshore Catholic District School Board and the Conseil des écoles publiques de l’Est de l’Ontario will also have that chance with the local launch of the Advanced Coronary Treatment (ACT) Foundations’ High School Defibrillator Training Program. “These are simple life saving skills that students can take home and use,” said ACT Foundation operations manager Jennifer Boissonneault. “They also learn how to recognize signs of a heart attack, healthy eating habits and what to do in an emergency situation.” While the ACT Foundation has been present in Belleville area schools for about the past four years teaching CPR, this

past week’s launch of the High School Defibrillator Training Program was significant as it was only made possible by local area sponsors. Together with the support of Belleville Tim Hortons, the Bancroft Lions Club, Kiwanis Club of Trenton, Kiwanis Club of Tweed, Madoc Kiwanis Club, and ACT’s provincial partners, 52 mannequins, 41 AED training units and a teacher training program have been donated to local high schools to support the program. Provincially, the ACT Foundation partners with the Government of Ontario, the Ontario Trillium Foundation and Hydro One. ““This enhancement of the AED program is an important addition to youth CPR training,” said Health Minister Deb Matthews in a release. “We are empowering youth with the skills and knowledge to save lives, which is an incredible asset to the health of our communities.” The ACT Foundation is

the national charitable organization that is establishing CPR and defibrillator training programs in Canadian high schools. To date, the ACT Foundation has set up the ACT High School CPR Program in more than 1,600 schools nation-wide, reaching more than 2.6 million youth. “This is just one example of entrusting our future to the youth of today,” said Mark Hanley, owner of Tim Hortons. “We will know that every high school student is trained and more knowledgeable than their elders when it comes to using such an important lifesaving device – the defibrillator. We are very proud to play a small part in that development.” Four in five out-of-hospital cardiac arrests occur at home or in public places. Early CPR, combined with the use of an AED within the first few minutes, can improve survival rates for cardiac arrest victims by up to 75 per cent, according to the Centennial Secondary School students demonstrate the lifesaving skills taught by the ACT High School CPR and Defibrillator Heart and Stroke Foundation.

Stirling-Rawdon council opts for clear garbage bags

LOVE OF ANIMALS

CHRISTMAS AUCTION

By Richard Turtle

News – Stirling – In an effort to extend the life expectancy of a pair of municipal landfill sites, Stirling-Rawdon council has adopted a garbage pickup policy that will ensure transparency at the curbside. Stirling-Rawdon Mayor Rodney Cooney says a clear bag bylaw was approved at the most recent regular meeting of council and is in keeping with municipalities in the surrounding area who are seeing a reduction in recyclables destined for landfill along with an increase in recycling as a result. As of January 1, 2014, household garbage will not be picked up unless it is placed in a clear plastic bag, marked with a municipal tag and free of any recyclables. Residents will be permitted a single coloured plastic bag inside each clear bag, Cooney

says, but otherwise recyclables must be placed in the blue box. Currently, he says, the two municipal landfill sites, located near Stirling and Spring Brook, could reach capacity within 15 years. “Right now there’s a lot (of recyclables) going in there,” he says adding it is clearly evident when equipment covers and moves the refuse. “We want to stop that,” he says of the practice of throwing away blue box materials. For purposes of pick-up, yard waste and leaves will have to be placed in paper bags. Details are available on the municipal website <stirling-rawdon. com> or by calling the municipal offices at 613-395-3380. Council is also encouraging residents and neighbours to nominate homes for the upcoming Christmas decorating contest. The annual event, which sees top choices as judged by a panel of councillors win Stirling buck prizes, has seen contestants register in previous years. However, the judging team has seen many impressive displays that have not been entered. This year, Mayor Cooney says, residents can also nominate other homes in their neighbourhoods.

Old resources, new business By Steve Jessel

Entertainment - Exploring the business of history was a major theme during Thursday nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s premiere of the 2013 History Lives Here Series at the Empire Theatre in Belleville, and series producer Peter Lockyer said thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one key aspect of the presentation he hopes people take away with them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s possible, to pioneer something here that retains history, promotes history, and is actually a business that is community based,â&#x20AC;? Lockyer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think we have to go from the model of heritage makers ... and say weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to produce a high-end product that heritage consumers from all over the world...are going to come here [to buy].â&#x20AC;? In a roughly hour and half long presentation, Lockyer, a former CBC broadcaster, outlined what a heritage economy could look like locally, draw-

ing from his own experiences as a volunteer with local heritage groups and organizations. Lockyer pointed to media such as the History Channel, and the 68 million monthly Google searches of the word â&#x20AC;&#x153;historyâ&#x20AC;? as ample evidence that the interest exists both in Canada and internationally, and suggested that local heritage resources are being under utilized. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every community has its stories to tell, but theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re often hidden away within the collections of cemeteries and libraries and museums and heritage organizations,â&#x20AC;? Lockyer told those in attendance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These stories can be transformed from a hidden history, into popular history, into a whole suite of goods and services. This is a concept we call the heritage economy.â&#x20AC;? Lockyer first became involved with the business side of history about five years ago

with the launch of the first History Moments Series. Launched to commemorate the 225th anniversary of Loyalist settlement in the region, the History Moments Series is a series of short, two-minute video vignettes that are distributed to be played at local theatres, on TV Cogeco, CKWS television in Kingston, and to local schools, archives and libraries. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Big picture, this project is not just about videos, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really about developing a new business from an old asset,â&#x20AC;? Lockyer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Developing a new business model for heritage organizations so they can carry on in the future.â&#x20AC;? Preservation of heritage buildings is a key aspect of developing that economy, Lockyer said, along with developing heritage products like summer walking tours, bus tours, foodstuffs, crafts, toys and whatever else the mind can dream. Lock-

yer said thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no shortage of potential in the region, and that the 2013 History Moments Series explored just a snapshot of the wealth of history all throughout the area. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s our belief that history has to be something that you can eat, something that you can drink, something that you can

experience, something that you can hold in your hand, and most importantly, something that you can sell,â&#x20AC;? Lockyer said. Belleville mayor Neil Ellis was in attendance, and said he agreed the region had potential to further expand its tourism industry through some form of heritage economy.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you look at the economic impact, people will travel for history, and when you look at some of those local historical features, if we can explore these features you can build a business around that,â&#x20AC;? Ellis said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every little bit helps...if we can accommodate this, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just another feather in our cap.â&#x20AC;?

Theatre looking for community stories, memorabilia News - Stirling - The Stirling Festival Theatre is looking for a few good stories for possible inclusion in an upcoming production. As research continues on the theatreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s community play, the creative team is turning to the people for some of their personal insights into Stirlingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s past. Theatre Managing Director David Vanderlip explains that the play, to be written by local resident, journalist and playwright Richard Turtle, will tell a fictional story set in the present about a farming family and the future they face but will include historical elements as well as local stories, memories and personalities who have lived in or passed through the village. Laura Smith, the theatreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s development officer, says there is plenty of room for community input. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Do you have a favourite family story? An anecdote

about your grandparents? Old photographs, farm tools or artifacts from olden times?â&#x20AC;? asks Smith. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whether your family has been here for years or you are a modern family, we invite you to share your trials, tribulations, joys and triumphs with us. Your story and ideas might be included in the play.â&#x20AC;? The play, which is scheduled for a public reading next year, will trace the areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history, explore some of the people who played a part in settling

A message of hope at ENSS By Ray Yurkowski

News - Brighton â&#x20AC;&#x201C; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hopeâ&#x20AC;? was the message at the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Global Citizenship in the 21st Centuryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; rally held last week at East Northumberland Secondary School (ENSS). And when special guest, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Me to Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; speaker, Molly Burke delivered it, you could have heard a pin drop as she shared a â&#x20AC;&#x153;journey of despair and hope,â&#x20AC;? from personal experiences and feelings about losing her sight. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the reason I wake up in the morning,â&#x20AC;? she told the students. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hope.â&#x20AC;? She was four years old when she was diagnosed with retinitis pigmentosa, a rare, degenerative eye disease that would eventually lead to a loss of vision. But things took a turn for the worse during the summer between Grade 7 and 8, when her doctor delivered the news. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was something Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll never forget,â&#x20AC;? said Burke. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sorry, but I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how much longer youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to be able to see.â&#x20AC;? Burke starts her speech with a blind joke. At first, there is hesitation from the packed auditorium at ENSS. Is it okay to laugh, even if the teller is blind? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am completely and totally blind,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We to Meâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; speaker Molly Burke delivers her message of hope at this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s she declared. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I cannot see a thing.â&#x20AC;? Burke spoke of the bullying and isoGlobal Citizenship rally, held last week at East Northumberland Secondary lation that came after she became fully School. Photo: Ray Yurkowski

blind at age 13, about rediscovering hope and joining a Free the Children project in Kenya. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I truly found a new definition to the word â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;hope,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And after reading so many definitions, I realize there is no definition for the word â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;hope.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Hope is something thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s different for all of us. We find it, we hear it, we experience it in different ways. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something we should never give up.â&#x20AC;? In his opening address, school principal Jeff Kawzenuk proudly proclaimed how ENSS is consistently in the top six fundraising schools for the Terry Fox campaign. Last year, the Brighton school earned their way to third in Canada. Students get involved at ENSS, a number of ways, including the 30-Hour Fast; Relay for Life; Salvation Army Christmas Adopt-a-Child program; Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  Wish Foundation and a lot more. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Becoming a global citizen is about doing the right thing,â&#x20AC;? Kawzenuk told the crowd. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Becoming a global citizen means you get involved. Every single person can do something to make a difference. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about the young people today that will bring about change for tomorrow. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m so proud to be the principal of a school that gives so much.â&#x20AC;?

Special guests at this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Global Citizenship rally were 2013 YMCA Northumberland Peace Medal youth winners, 11-year-old Raya Rickerby and her seven-year-old brother Dylan, who thought how cool it would be if they could help build a school in Guinea. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve already raised more than half of their $10,000 goal and, once itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s done, UNICEF will donate the additional $30,000 needed to complete the project.

Akins says, noting applicants ranging from sports teams to school groups are always welcome. The SFSCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s CanSkate Coordinator Shirley Ann Deck says despite a $2,000 fundraiser and the Walmart Matching Grant of an additional $2,000, fundraising is continuing.

News - Stirling - While it is still the same StirlingRawdon Public Library, there have been some significant changes in recent months and staff and local officials are preparing for an official reopening. Chief Librarian Sue Winfield says there were a few disruptions while renovations were underway and regular service continued, but the additional space and reconfigured layout are welcome improvements for both patrons and staff that were well worth the brief inconvenience. The project, she says, was made possible through Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF) funding, the formalities subsequently dubbed the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Grantâ&#x20AC;? Reopening. And the public is invited to check out the changes on Tuesday, Dec. 17 at 1:30 p.m. during official reopening ceremonies. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thanks to a grant of $100,400 from the Ontario Trillium Foundation, the library has been able to renovate the upper level, creating a much more functional space for our patrons as well as meet accessibility standards,â&#x20AC;? Winfield says. MPP, Todd Smith, Stirling-Rawdon Mayor Rodney Cooney, OTF representatives and other dignitaries are expected to join in the celebration. Refreshments will be served. For more information please contact the Library at 613-395-2837.

Bulls continue slide down OHL standings

Sports - It’s been a stunning turnaround for the Belleville Bulls hockey club this season, as less than seven months after the Bulls battled the Barrie Colts in the 2013 OHL Eastern conference final, the team now finds itself languishing in last place in the OHL through 25 games. On Thursday, head coach and general manager George Burnett looked to accelerate the rebuilding process, trading forward Luke Cairns to the Saginaw Spirit in exchange for a pair of 2016 draft picks. “With 15 forwards on the roster right now and everybody healthy, we want to stay committed to the growth and development of our young players,”

said Burnett. “An opportunity in Saginaw has presented itself and we wish Luke all the best moving forward.” The month of November hasn’t been kind to the Bulls, who entered their Friday night matchup with the Kitchener Rangers fresh off a 9-4 walloping at the hands of the Ottawa 67s two nights prior. Against Kitchener, the Bulls certainly got off on the right foot when Jordan Subban opened the scoring with his fifth goal of the year midway through the first period, but the game quickly slipped out of their hands. With the score 2 - 2 midway through the second period, the Rangers would score the next four goals to make the score a nearly insurmountable 6

- 2 in the third period. Belleville looked to make things respectable with a pair of late goals by forward Davids Tomasek and recently acquired Cameron Brace, but the Rangers would tack on two more goals in the third period to claim an 8-4 win. The Bulls managed to outshoot the Rangers 43-42 in the game, but in net Jason Da Silva allowed all eight goals, filling in for injured starter Charlie Graham. Looking to avoid their second four-game losing streak of the season, the Bulls travelled to Owen Sound the next night, Saturday November 23 to take on the Attack. In a 4 - 3 loss, the Bulls found goals from Jake Worrad, Cameron Brace and Garrett Hoo-

ey, but allowed 41 shots and two powerplay goals on three Owen Sound powerplays. Captain Brendan Gaunce recorded a pair of assists in the loss, giving him 26 points on the season, while ju-

nior B call-up Braydon Banitsiotis took the loss in his first OHL start. The loss dropped the Bulls to 5-16-2-2 on the season. The Bulls end the month of November with a pair of games,

travelling to Peterborough to take on the division rival Petes on Thursday, before returning home to take on the arch-rival Kingston Frontenacs Saturday night at the Yardmen Arena.

Quinte Red Devils weekly report Atoms

Sports - The Quinte Carpet One Atom Red Devils hockey team sandwiched two wins around one loss in ETA league play this week. The Devils downed the GK Frontenacs 4 - 1 on Wednesday night. On a weekend road trip, the Devils forgot their work boots at home, losing 4 - 1 to the Barrie Colts. The Devils wrapped up the week with a 4 - 2 win over the North Central Predators, out shooting their hosts 39 - 10. Hitting the scoresheet for the Devils this week were: Ty Gauvin and Maguire Shortt with two goals each, Michael Patrick, Gavin Camp, Lucas Culhane, Tanner Jones, and Ross Maycock with singles. Dixon Grimes and Ethan Fraser split the goaltending chores and were solid between the pipes.



Minor Peewee


The Free Flow Petroleum Minor Peewee hockey team played the Peterborough Petes on Friday night. Quinte opened the scoring with a power play goal when Cayde Culhane put a perfect shot on goal and was re-directed by Marshall Mcfarland to take a 1 - 0 lead.  Peterborough answered quickly with one of their own.  The second goal for Quinte also came on the power play when yet again, Cole Mcguire passed the puck to Culhane who fired a shot on goal and Jacob Gilbert fired home the puck to put the team up 2 - 1.  Late in the third, the Petes capitalized on one of their own power plays and tied the game with three minutes to go.  The game ended in a draw 2 - 2.  Matthew Tovell  handled the goaltending duties.   On Saturday night, Quinte hosted the Oshawa Generals.  The Red Devils posted two goals early on the power play and took an early 2 - 0 lead.  Scor-

ing both goals for Quinte was Josh Quick with assists going to Nolan Dawson and Adam Thistlethwaite with two each.  The Devils then found some trouble in the third period and Oshawa scored two of their own power play goals to tie the game.  In goal was Ethan Mcdonell who was not busy in the first and second periods, but had to bail his team out in the third.

Minor Midget


The McInroy Maines Minor Midget Quinte Red Devils hockey team continued what seems like an endless season of one-goal losses with two more on the weekend.  On Saturday afternoon, the Devils travelled to Whitby to take on the Wildcats.  Whitby took a 2 - 0 lead, but the Devils fought back with a goal by Ethan Coens on the powerplay (assists to Greg Thomas and Austin Labelle).  Despite several chances in the last few minutes of the game, Whitby walked away with a narrow 2 - 1 victory.

 On Sunday at the Quinte Sports Centre, the Devils hosted one of the top teams in the ETA, the York Simcoe Express.  An early goal by Graiden Maynard (assists to Austin Labelle and Austin Fry) gave Quinte the lead.  York Simcoe tied it up, but Trent Schutt took advantage of a turnover and put one past the Express goalie to give the Devils back the lead.  Some penalty trouble and a couple breakdowns gave York Simcoe a 4 - 2 lead at the flood.  A late goal by Colin Doyle (assists to Gavin Stevenson and Brodie Maracle) narrowed the gap, but York-Simcoe left with a 4 - 3 victory and handed the Devils their 9th one-goal loss of the season. Next action is on Thursday night at the QSC against the Central Ontario Wolves.

CAAWC helps United Way with unique fundraiser By Ross Lees

News - It’s not an easy first step to take, but a lot of people, young and not so young, took it Saturday on behalf of the United Way of Quinte. Some had to be coaxed to go out of the Canadian Army Advanced Warfare Centre (CAAWC) training towers the first time, but a surprising number couldn’t wait to give it a try; all after forking over a few bucks towards this year’s Government of Canada Workplace Charitable Campaign (GCWCC) towards the United Way at 8 Wing/CFB Trenton.

Once they’d done it the first time, many were anxious to go back and do it again, some several times. Twelve-year-old Julia Flor rapelled down the 60-foot rapelling tower with relative ease after some coaching from the facility instructors. Once she was over the lip of the tower, she just kept going until she reached the bottom amid cheers from her family and friends. “It was scary, but it was fun,” she said a little later after she had warmed up. Adding even more excitement to the day was the fact cold winds kept blowing in snow squalls throughout the day. “It’s not an easy thing to do,” noted CAAWC Commanding Officer Lt.-Col. Francois Dufault as he watched his team of trained personnel help people go

through the training towers. Elizabeth Campbell had to be coaxed by her son to jump off the tower the first time, but she immediately went back to do it again. “It was a lot of fun,” she laughed after taking the initial plunge. “I’m going back up to do it again.” “This is my third time,” one gentleman noted as he went back up the stairs of the tower. Julia and her family took the opportunity to go off both towers to experience the parachuting aspect of the training and the rappelling. The day not only raised funds for the United Way of Quinte, it also provided training experiences for those CAAWC members on the towers. The centre

is the main training hub for the Canadian military, pushing 13 courses through per year, including the military freefall parachuting, mountain operations and parachute rigging. United Way of Quinte executive director Judi Gilbert arrived late in the day with her three nieces and, while the parachuting tower was closed at that time, her nieces loved the rappelling tower, she said. “I think it was a great initiative to open something of this nature up to the public,” Gilbert stated. “Not only does it raise funds for the campaign but gives people a small glimpse into CFB. We are very fortunate to have such a wonderful partner in CFB.” Please see “United Way fundraiser” page B3

Hundreds arrive for Farmtown Christmas

News - Stirling – It was a Christmas celebration at Farmtown Park as hundreds of visitors arrived last weekend for a fundraiser that wrapped up Sunday afternoon with the raffle of dozens of holiday prizes. Christmas at Farmtown Park organizer Harry Danford, joined by other museum officials, welcomed guests and thanked supporters, sponsors and volunteers before making his way through Heritage Village with Stirling-Rawdon Mayor Rodney Cooney while drawing the names of the lucky winners.

Volunteers at the local agricultural museum also held their annual Starlite House Tour last Friday evening that once again, they say, was well attended. Along the way, ticket holders visited five area homes, decorated for the holidays, before finishing the tour at the museum’s Heritage Village. “It was really good,” says organizer Edith Ray. “The numbers were up a little bit from last year,” she adds, noting the annual tour continues to be popular with comments from participants being extremely favourable. Danford, who headed up the team of volunteers behind the

annual event dubbed Home for the Holidays, says the successful return of the fundraiser last year set the wheels in motion for the continuation of the annual event. And with more than 60 items available for raffle, crowds arrived throughout the weekend to get a look at the goods. The recreated streetscape was awash in Christmas lights and with plenty of treats on full display along the way. With the help of the Christmas festival’s Artistic Director Debbie Cooney, the historical street scene offered a bright and colourful welcome to the holiday season with a little extra warmth provided by a

Amanda Low was one of Santa’s many helpers during the weekend Christmas event at Farmtown Park, where trees and toys were among the items up for raffle.

Farmtown Park Manager Margaret Grotek says the weekend was a busy one and, although the museum has been closed for the winter, the Christmas themed fundraiser continues to bring the community together despite the chill. Raffle prizes included dozens of artificial trees, each covered in ornaments and thematically decorated, boxes of toys and baskets of holiday items. A refurbished and repainted Farmtown Park Express, a miniature train that will be used at future Christmas at Farmtown Park Organizer Harry Danford, joined by Kathy functions as well, was loaded with toys Reid (left) and Mary Hunt, prepares to draw a ticket during last week- and drew plenty of attention from the end’s fundraiser at the Stirling agricultural museum. younger visitors. Each raffle item was accompanied by a box where tickets could be deposited throughout the four-day event, with the final draws held Sunday afternoon. Those who were not in attendance for the final draw were notified afterwards with prizes available for pickup earlier this week.

Approximately 100 people showed up for the first-time event, according to Capt. Andy McGregor and $700 was raised. “It was our first time organizing something like this, so we wanted to make sure we did it properly,” he said. They are pretty sure they will do it again, but they might do it a little earlier in the campaign, Capt. McGregor stated. “Next time we’ll probably do it in September to start the campaign,” he laughed, referring to the cold winds and snow squalls throughout the day. He called the event a win-win situation. “Not only was it a way to raise money for the United Way, it works up people’s confidence to push themselves both mentally and physically, just like we do in the Canadian Armed Forces,” he said.

We’re getting older News - According to preliminary Statistics Canada estimates, 5,379,600 Canadians, or 15.3 per cent of the country’s population, were aged 65 and over on July 1, 2013. This proportion has steadily increased since the beginning of the 1960s mainly because of fertility rates persistently below the replacement level and increasing life expectancy. In 1960, the proportion of Canadians aged 65 and over was 7.6 per cent. As of July 1, 2013, the median age of the Canadian population was 40.2 years. The median age was higher for women (41.1 years) than men (39.4 years). This difference is largely explained by a persistent, although diminishing, gap in life expectancy in favour of women. Canada has one of the lowest proportion of seniors among G8 countries. At 15.3 per cent, its proportion remains below what was

registered in Japan (25.0 per cent), Germany (21.0 per cent), Italy (21.0 per cent), France (17.0 per cent) and the United Kingdom (16.0 per cent). However, it is higher than those recorded in the United States (14.0 per cent) and Russia (13.0 per cent). Because the baby-boom cohorts recently started to reach their 65th birthday, the number of Canadian seniors is now increasing at an accelerated pace. Since July 1, 2011, the number of seniors grew at an average annual rate of 4.2 per cent. By comparison, the average annual rate for the five previous years was 2.8 per cent. This proportion should continue to rise rapidly in the coming years as an increasing number of baby boomers will reach the age of 65. A look at the last 30 years shows that all age groups over 40 posted higher increases than the national average. The largest gains happened in age groups aged 80 and over. In

contrast, three age groups saw their numbers decrease during this period: the 20 to 24 (-2.4 per cent), the 10 to 14 (-1.1 per cent) and the 15 to 19 (-0.6 per cent) age groups. These cohorts were born between 1989 and 2003, a period in which Canadian fertility was at its lowest levels. As a result of increasing life expectancy, more and more Canadians now reach the age of 100. According to preliminary estimates, there were 6,900 centenarians in Canada on July 1, 2013, representing almost 20 centenarians per 100,000 persons. In 2001, this proportion was just over half of that at 11 centenarians per 100,000 persons. By comparison, Japan’s population in 2012 had around 40 centenarians per 100,000 persons. More women than men reach the age of 100 because of lower mortality levels at all ages. In 2013, centenarians were mostly women (87.1 per cent).

Property owners show their support

Point Property Owners’ Association let governments know back in 2010 that its News - Brighton - The Presqu’ile the municipal, provincial and federal local landmark, the lighthouse, needed attention. All three levels replied to the association indicating support for its preservation, president Pat Boyce said. However, “because there wasn’t anything in progress, they didn’t give ... money but they said they would.” Now the association is challenging the three governments to commit funding because progress is being made toward a solution to halt deterioration of the 173-year-old lighthouse. Leading the charge to save the tower is the Presqu’ile Point Lighthouse Preservation Society which has raised money for an engineering study to be done and is prepared to raise much more when the scope of work required has been identified. To show its support for the work the society is doing, the property owners’ association donated $500 last week. R0012372993

By John Campbell

The lighthouse is “part of the history of Presqu’ile. It has served us for boating and tourism, it’s the icon of the community,” Boyce said. “Everybody has it on their letterhead. We are all very supportive.” The 69-foot octagonal tower built in 1840 was originally just limestone but it had to be encased with timber and cedar shingles before the end of the century to protect it from further damage. The contractors took shortcuts to save money, using local limestone rather than limestone from Kingston, which was of superior quality, and making the mortar with beach sand, rather than quarried sand, association director Spencer Dennis said. The structure started eroding almost immediately, and its durability has continued to decline because of moisture getting trapped inside and then freezing and thawing. “The lighthouse is still gift wrapped,”

said Norman Bastin, chair of the preservation society. “We have to take the wrapping off – the gift is inside.” The organization will boost its fundraising efforts by placing small handmade cottages in stores throughout town in December to receive donations. It’s held two draws to date, at a gala event and Applefest. The winners of signed and numbered replicas of the lighthouse made by Bastin were Dan Thompson (first) and Kathryn Corbett (second). Bob Burke won a framed print of the lighthouse donated by Dave Lawler and Quinte Art & Custom Frame for the Applefest raffle.

TRAVEL

Exploring Germany’s fairy tale route By John M. Smith

Lifestyles - The 600-kilometre German Fairy Tale Route takes the visitor from Hanau, in central Germany, to Bremen, in the north, and it focuses on the lives and fairy tale collections of Wilhelm and Jacob Grimm.  This route has been particularly popular of late, for it has been 200 years since the publication of their first collection, Children’s and Household Tales, in December 1812 – and there have been several special anniversary celebrations going on.  Therefore, I decided to check out part of this magical route for myself on my latest adventure trek. I began my research in Hanau, the birthplace of the Brothers Grimm, and I discovered that the actual house in which they first lived no longer exists, but I did find a nameplate marking the spot.  I also found a lot of information about the two brothers in the local museum, which is housed in a former summer palace: Castle Philippsruhe.  Wilhelm and Jacob finally preserved, in writing, tales that had been told orally for hundreds of years – and this list of fairy tales certainly brought back many fond childhood memories to me, for they included Cinderella, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Rapunzel, Rumpelstiltskin, Little Red Riding Hood, the Frog Prince, and the Pied Piper of Hamelin.  I learned that these stories have been translated into about 140 languages, and I couldn’t help but think of how these ancient tales still influence us today, for so many of them have been adapted by Walt Disney – or altered in such films as Red Riding Hood, Snow White and the Huntsman, Snow White: A Tale of Terror, and Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters.  I also thought of TV’s Grimm – and of our very own upcoming Pinnacle Playhouse production (in late May) of Into the Woods, Stephen Sondheim’s musical take on these fairy tales.  I was even reminded of a rather recent book, entitled Red Rider’s Hood, in which Red Rider visits his grandmother in his red mustang and discovers that she’s a wolf-hunter being terrorized by a gang of werewolves. Unique interpretations, indeed! I took a walking tour of Hanau with Dr. Wolfgang Hasenpusch, and we visited the Brothers Grimm National Monument, which pays tribute to the famous linguists, cultural researchers, and fairy tale collectors.  I learned that there’s now a “Brothers Grimm Prize for Literature” awarded annually – and even a Brothers Grimm wine and pastry sold here.   We also attended the “Brothers Grimm Fairy Tale Festival”, where we watched a 2-hour production of a version of a Brothers Grimm story about a brother and sister - entirely in German!  And, believe it or not, the sets, acting, and music still made this very entertaining to me – despite my missing all the spoken jokes! I was very fortunate to be in Hanau this summer, at the very time of its annual “Brothers Grimm Fairy Tale Festi-

val”, as this was certainly a great way for me to ‘kick start’ my exploration of the Fairy Tale Route.  I next went to the nearby village of Steinau, for the A statue of the Brothers Grimm in Hanau, their boys moved here at the ages of 5 and 6, birthplace.

when dad became the district magistrate. The courthouse, where the family lived from 1791 - 1796, is now known as the Brothers Grimm House, and it contains a museum with lots of information and memorabilia about the family.  It was here that I learned that another talented brother, Ludwig, became a very successful illustrator – and his sketches certainly added to the popularity of Wilhelm and Jacob’s published works. I toured Steinau with guide Heike Lifke, and I was told that the tiny village hasn’t changed all that much from when the Grimms lived there.  It’s still a quiet little place, with narrow, cobblestone streets and halftimbered houses.  However, there’s now the addition of a Fairy Tale Fountain in the village centre, with various characters from the Brothers Grimm fairy tales featured. I considered visiting Marburg next, where the brothers attended school, or Kassel, where they later lived and worked and collected fairy tales (and now the site of yet another important Brothers Grimm museum), but I felt that I had enough background and historical information about them already.  I also thought about visiting the Sleeping Beauty Castle (Sababurg) or Rapunzel’s Castle (in Trendelburg), or spending time in the land or Little Red Riding Hood (between Alsfeld and Fritzlar), but I decided to head further north instead, since my time was limited, to check out Hameln, site of the Clubhouse Brothers Grimm fairy tale entitled “The Pied Piper of Hamelin”.  This proved to be the right decision for me – and I was so intrigued by this destination that I’ll be writing about it in next week’s travel feature.

The Good Earth:

Dan Clost Lifestyles - “Education is a progressive discovery of our own ignorance.”- Will Durant “I have yet to plumb the depths of my own ignorance.” - Dan Clost Gardening can provide us with quite the education if we let it. Now, the gardening to which I am referring is that

Gardening provides quite the education

of the hobbyist, not of the farmer or the landscaper.   A starting term would be ornamental garden and includes plants in the landscape and the vegetable garden. For many of us who engage in this activity, it is a recreational pursuit with the reward coming in the doing and not necessarily the achieving. Our professional livelihood and our sustenance are not derived from this pursuit, although both are enhanced by it. Let’s take a carrot farmer as an illustration. Such a person might grow 30 plus tons of fresh carrots per acre.  This year, as odd a year as it was, I grew about 30 carrots in total and that is only if I duct-taped all of the wee things together. (Took a bit longer for soil temperatures to reach good germination values and I suspect the soil was a bit heavy.) So, we purchased carrots from the farmer’s markets and grocery stores. If I was the carrot farmer and reaped such a meager

crop, the only carrots I would see would be those at the food bank.  And I would not see the irony. For many Gentle Readers, especially those of us who have seen their first 50 years go whooshing past, gardening was part of our lives growing up. Many of us did rely on homegrown veggies and fruits as part of our daily meals...even if it did occasionally include pickled beets.  And if we lived in an urban setting, the green grocer was a common shopping stop.   I clearly remember shelves and cupboards of mason jars filled with pickles, peaches and other “stuff”. I would say “stuff” like chutney or green tomato chow-chow, but then I’d get an email from my Mom telling me my memory doesn’t quite match hers. I also remember bins of potatoes and carrots, cabbages hanging from beams in the basement and the odd bushel of parsnips picked up at a sale barn.  Those

times have changed dramatically and, in spite of all the back-to-the-earth proponents, will never come again. It is important to make that distinction because we need to understand how words have their meaning changed over time; we need to use the same definition within the conversation. The question now becomes, “What is an educated gardener?” Certainly the obvious aspects of understanding how a plant grows and how to provide it with the culture it requires in order to do so are an important part. Otherwise, we wouldn’t have much of a garden to talk about. So we can include bits and pieces of botany, biology, soil science, geography and meteorology.   Let’s not forget arithmetic: mathematics can be included but then you’re probably a carrot farmer who wandered out of the patch and into this newspaper. GR, that is merely scratching the sur-

face and doesn’t get to the root of the issue. Gardening, carried out over the years, brings experience and, with the considered application of that experience, wisdom. Along the way, we cannot help but become philosophers. I like to think that a philosopher is a person who thinks about everything around them as being unquestionably connected to everything else. Then, the thinking considers the results of our individual responses to everything else, which can be a lot to think about. In our gardens, we watch the wonders of nature being wrought before our eyes; we learn the relationships between all of the organisms involved, seen and unseen, good and bad, including Sox our dog who likes to eat bell peppers al hortus. We learn patience and that to everything there is a season. All of that, together, creates an educated gardener.

Concert to support military overseas draws big crowd By Debbie McLean

Entertainment - Quinte West - We had a great turn out and lots of amazing music at the Trenton Legion on November 22. Lieutenant-Colonel Tress Home and Chief Warrant Officer Ted Poper came as representatives from CFB Trenton to accept the 200 plus CDs that The Lady and Old Toad Gil presented to them. The CDs were produced to send to Canadian Forces members stationed overseas as Christmas gifts. Also on hand were Quinte West City Councillor Paul Kyte and Northumberland/Quinte West MPP Rob Milligan. The Lady and Old Toad Gil were so thrilled with the whole evening. Music artists and musicians performing on the night were; Cedarail (Wendy Bellan and David Hayes) Michael Arthur, Betty-Ann Perry, Dane Perry, Debbie McLean, Brett McNaueal and Darcy Hammerton. Everyone who came out was very happy that they did. Remember if anyone would like to sponsor more CDs to be pressed they may contact Old Toad Gil at christmasfromhome@gmail.com. Five thousand CDs have already been pressed and approximately 3,000 have been distributed thus far. A great crowd turned out at the Trenton Legion for a concert to promote the CDs being given out to the military overseas. Photo: submitted

Anne of Green Gables will light up stage at NDHS By Bill Freeman

high-spirited heroine of Lucy Maud Montgomery’s enduring 1908 novel, will come to life in the high school’s production of the famously Canadian musical with Brittany Stewart in the lead

role. “I am very excited,” says director Tracey Irwin, a member of the Peterborough Singers who is also the school’s guidance secretary.

Entertainment - Norwood – Anne of Green Gables will light up the stage at Norwood District High School. Anne Shirley, the feisty and

There certainly is plenty to be excited about because the school has placed a real emphasis on bringing the community into the production as volunteers and helpers as well as inviting grade seven and eight students from NDHS feeder schools in Havelock, Norwood and Hastings to participate. “It’s really nice because the whole school is getting involved,” says Irwin, noting that construction classes will work on prop building, the art class will immerse itself in set design and teachers like guidance head Todd Murray are working backstage. “There’s lots of opportunity to be involved with backstage, lighting, front of house, marketing,” she says. And of course there is a large, committed cast of over 20 which does include elementary students. A committee that included community members selected the play in September following a series of meetings; the intention is to enhance the arts at the school and encourage people from outside of NDHS to be part of this renaissance. “We had a little focus group and this is nice Canadian music which is what we wanted to start out. We wanted to do something Canadian and this is what came out on top,” said Irwin. The play also gels nicely with the talent pool within the school, she says. “For us, we have a very strong female talent,” she said, adding that they were pleasantly surprised at the number of boys who came out to auditions. “So we wanted something that was

not only Canadian but would also fit our students a little more.” They also wanted an easily recognizable play that would attract people from the community to the school during its April 10-12 run. Things have gone well from the very first rehearsal, says Irwin, which was really designed as a “fun night of games and team building.”

“It got everybody comfortable with everybody else,” she said. That was important because there are quite a few grade nine and ten students in the show. “We really want to focus on the arts at the school,” Murray, who is the backstage manager, said. “We find that a lot of grade nines and tens are into the arts and lean towards Please see “Stage” on page B11

Good times guaranteed when Alan Jackson hits stage

By Bill Freeman

Entertainment - Havelock- They don’t come any bigger than Alan Jackson. With two Grammy Awards, 16 Country Music Awards, 35 number one hits and 60 million albums sold, the Georgia native is a giant of a music star and Havelock Country Jamboree fans will get to bask in his “good time” vibe when he hits the stage August 15 as part of the twenty-fifth anniversary festival. Jackson’s appearance comes on the heels of last year’s dynamic program that included Trace Adkins, Reba McEntire and Wynonna Judd and Martina McBride’s killer show in 2012. Jackson is one of the most respected singer songwriters in the music industry and is in the lofty company of John Lennon and Paul McCartney as one of the few musicians to have written and recorded more than 20 songs that have shot to the top of the charts. He is one of the top ten selling artists since the inception of Sound Scan and can rub shoulders quite comfortably with musicians as diverse as Eminem and head-banging Platinum recording artist Suzy Bogguss will apMetallica.

JFK remembered at Trenton High School 50 years after death

By Kate Everson

Events - Quinte West – Who killed JFK? And why? These questions still haunt historians who never satisfactorily resolved the details surrounding the 35th president’s assassination in Dallas, Texas on November 22, 1963. “The assassination was well organized,” concluded Trenton High School grade 12 student Sean Walsh-Barber. He was looking at a display at the school

on November 22 put on by retired teacher Duncan Armstrong. “There is still more to discover.” At exactly 1 p.m. Dallas time, 2 p.m. our time, John Fitzgerald Kennedy was pronounced dead. Duncan Armstrong pointed to the clock in the room. “This was the exact time of death, 50 years ago,” he said. Armstrong has collected JFK books, magazines, newspaper clippings and articles since the 1980s. He has several hundred in

his collection, including an amateur film taken of the fatal shot. He asked the students who came into the room throughout the day to analyze and ask questions themselves. Was there just one shooter? Why did he kill Kennedy? The film brings more questions to light, including the angle of shots, the man with the umbrella up, the incapacity of the guards after drinking all night, the speed of the car, and more. “Kennedy was well liked by

the masses,” Armstrong said. “He knew how to control the media, but he was very young to be president. Industry didn’t like being told what to do by a young buck.” He said the Warren Commission put out a report to prove that one person, Lee Harvey Oswald, was the sole shooter and acted alone. But questions and conspiracy theories have been ongoing for 50 years. Where were you when you heard Kennedy had been shot? Armstrong said he was just getting off the school bus in his home town in Nova Scotia. “I was totally shocked,” he said. “There was fear too. There was the Russians and the Cuban missile crisis.” He said people began thinking more about the details of the assassination as years went by and Martin Luther King was shot and Robert Kennedy was killed. “People starting asking questions,” he said. “Then there was Watergate and that put the icing on the cake. Blind faith was out the window.” Armstrong went to Dallas in 1985 to see for himself the place where Kennedy was shot. Now there is a museum on the site. “It was a precision military operation,” he says. “An inside job. The old guard, industrialists, U.S. Steel. Kennedy was trying to stop the Vietnam War. He also sided with the blacks.” Kennedy had already served one term as president and was kicking off his campaign for his second term by going to Dallas. He arrived by plane with his wife Jacqueline at his side. The open car was an easy mark. There were three shots from a bolt action rifle, one missed, the next one hit and the third took his head off. The film reveals it all to clearly. “JFK felt very safe,” Armstrong said. “There wasn’t even a secret service man on his side of the car when the shots went off. Why not? There was a sniper on the sixth floor. Why didn’t he shoot dead-on instead of letting the car turn at the overpass?” He said the first shot was deflected and hit someone along the road in the face. The second shot hit Kennedy in the throat and Conley got hit. Kennedy was killed in the third shot and declared dead in the hospital soon after. “Why did the gunmen do it?” he asks. “If it was Oswald’s need to be famous then why did he flea? There are a series of issues; civil rights, war. Why is the interesting question.”

Anti-bullying message is there every day By Bill Freeman

News - Norwood – Bullying awareness is much more than a one-week campaign at Norwood District High School, says the school’s student council. Last week was dedicated to anti-bullying across the Kawartha Pine Ridge District School Board and NDHS used the opportunity creatively by combining the campaign with a full-out spirit week that included the traditional pink shirt day on Wednesday; there was also a pajama day to “put bullying to bed, ”a black clothing day to “black out” bullying, an injury day that encouraged students to wear colourful band-aids to illustrate that “words hurt even though you can’t see them” and a sports sweater day to show people that students are team players and good sports. “We put a creative spin on it this year,” student council president Shannen Nickle said. “Normally we only have the one day; it was nice to have the whole week.” “The message we want to put out is that the school is bully-free,” Shannen said, “and even though it is bully-free there’s always improvements that can be made.”

The important thing, she added, is that the message is there every day and not just during a dedicated campaign week. “Just because we’ve got special events this week doesn’t mean it’s not present every day. Each student council member makes sure that message gets out to each student.” Shannen says there’s a “good atmosphere” at NDHS. “There’s a lot of participation in everything that goes on. Not only does it show that they care, it shows that they are doing it all the time.” Student council members made a concerted effort to get the school’s newest and youngest students in grade nine involved and feeling comfortable about life at NDHS, Shannen says. That starts even before they arrive at the high school but really kicks in during the grade nine information night and official welcome day. “The grade nines are really into it (and) everybody feels pretty comfortable as far as we know and they know that they can talk to us; we are always

available and they know who we are. We are here for them to talk to as well as any of the senior students.” The NDHS student council is already looking ahead to the Day of Pink on April 10 which is the international day against bullying. They plan to show the powerful, moving and award-winning documentary “Bully,” directed by Sundance and Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Lee Hirsch and the inspiration behind The Bully Project, a social action campaign against bullying. “We want to incorporate that into the international day,” says Shannen, noting that bullying is not just a teen thing; it can happen anywhere to anyone, kids and adults alike. The NDHS student council is a busy and active group and Shannen says she and her peers are happy in what they do. “We’re really productive. We have a great group. I love coming to meetings because everybody’s so into it; everybody always has something to say which is nice (and) we always have new stuff coming on.”

The Norwood District High student council led bullying awareness events at the school last week.

News - The effects of the catastrophic Typhoon Haiyan are still being felt in the central Philippines, but locally, a group of musicians are banding together in an attempt to help raise funds for the ongoing relief effort. Quinte Unites! A Benefit Concert for the Philippines is scheduled for Wednesday, Dec. 4, 2013 at 7 p.m. at Eastminster United Church in Belleville, and church administrator Peter Kerr said the response has been amazing from musicians looking to add their talents to the fundraising concert. “The response has been overwhelming, we’ve had to tell people they can’t play because we have too many acts,” Kerr said. Initially approached by Prince Edward County musician Jeanette Arsenault about the possibility of hosting a concert, Kerr said the church was quick to jump on board. Now, roughly 25 musical acts have agreed to donate their talents to the concert. “It’s something where there’s a lot of people interested in finding ways to help, and it’s just one way to get the community together to do that,” Kerr said. Admission is by voluntary donation, and 100 per cent of funds raised will be given to the ACT Alliance, a coalition of more than 140 churches and religious organizations that work to provide assistance to impoverished peoples. All donations are tax deductible, and the Canadian government has agreed to match all donations by Canadians up until December 9. The church has room for roughly 370 people, and Kerr said it will be first come, first serve. Doors open at 6 p.m. “I actually think it probably will fill up,” Kerr said. For more information, including on participating artists, visit the event’s Facebook page by searching for “Quinte Unites! Benefit Concert for the Philippines.”

ingâ&#x20AC;? which notes â&#x20AC;&#x153;postal banking systems are proliferating around the worldâ&#x20AC;? and Canada â&#x20AC;&#x153;has a long history of delivering financial servicesâ&#x20AC;? through its postal system. Banking fees and credit card rates are among the highest in the world, and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a decline in branch banking with the rise of ATMs, Internet and telephone banking, the study said. It pointed out the country had a postal savings system for more than a century and it listed the many advantages to having Canada Post once again offer financial services. For example, 60 per cent of its almost 6,400 postal outlets are in rural areas â&#x20AC;&#x153;where there are fewer banks and credit unions,â&#x20AC;? and many outlets have, or could have, longer operating hours than banks. The CUPW is trying to drum up support to have the federal government consider allowing Canada Post to add financial services like bill payments, insurance and banking, when it reviews the corporationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s charter next year. The union says Canada Post â&#x20AC;&#x153;has already dramatically cut service by closing or downsizing public post offices, eliminating rural mailbox delivery and removing street letter collection boxesâ&#x20AC;? and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;campaigningâ&#x20AC;? for more â&#x20AC;&#x153;major service cuts.â&#x20AC;? CUPW favours improving the charter in a number of ways, such as ensuring a moratorium be placed on closing post offices in small and rural communities, establishing a Canada Post ombudsperson, and putting in place a democratic process that includes consultation with the public and other stakeholders before any changes are made to the postal and delivery network, including closures, downsizing and the removal of rural mailboxes.

Members of Trent Hills council recognized the fate of Canada Post is of concern in rural Canada but they were not prepared to back the union when the issue came up for discussion last week. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have any appetite for increasing infrastructure and adding extra costs to what we have now,â&#x20AC;? Councillor Rosemary Kelleher-MacLennan said. But if something were brought down the road that â&#x20AC;&#x153;looks more viable than I do agree there are some services there that they probably could add (that) could help finance the postal services.â&#x20AC;? Kelleher-MacLennan said she was â&#x20AC;&#x153;tornâ&#x20AC;? by the unionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I agree with it in principle but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to see more of the meat of the matter of what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking at putting in place. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to see something ... (like) Hydro One which hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t saved us any money in my opinion. If anything I think we pay more.â&#x20AC;? There are â&#x20AC;&#x153;a couple of good nuggetsâ&#x20AC;? in the study but â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not sure that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m totally convinced yet,â&#x20AC;? she said. Deputy-mayor Bob Crate said he found the idea of postal banking â&#x20AC;&#x153;very intriguingâ&#x20AC;? because it â&#x20AC;&#x153;might be a way to save the small post offices and it would also be a boon to the residents because a lot of these places there is no bankingâ&#x20AC;? or itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s provided only a couple days of week, as in Warkworth. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Imagine a little competition for the banks,â&#x20AC;? Mayor Hector Macmillan said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I do like the idea of the service being delivered to remote parts of our community where there are no banks or thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s limited banking.â&#x20AC;? In the end council voted to file the letter from CUPW.

Pond Hockey tournament to raise funds for TMH Events - Batawa â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The third annual Pond Hockey Classic tournament to take place on January 17 and 18 will raise funds for the Trenton Memorial Hospital Foundation and the Military Families Fund. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a true community event,â&#x20AC;? said Captain Jeff Moorhouse, event coordinator and Lions president, at the Batawa Lions Community Rink. As well as two days of outdoor hockey involving 32 teams, there will be a Roots of Hockey dinner on January 18 at the National Air Force Museum of Canada. Special guests will include Just for Laughs comedian Dave Hemstad and Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most famous hockey dad Walter Gretzky.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is going to be a phenomenal event.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last year Peter MacKay dropped the puck,â&#x20AC;? noted Lieutenant-Colonel Mark Goulden, Commanding Officer for 436 Squadron which is hosting the event. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is going to be a phenomenal event.â&#x20AC;? He said this year the event will raise funds for the local hospital and for military

families. He noted that John Smylie is chair of the TMH Foundation as well as Honourary Colonel of the 436 Squadron. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to give back to our community,â&#x20AC;? he added. Wendy Warner, executive director of the TMH Foundation, said it is an honour to work with the base. She noted that SARtechs have helped out in their emergency room and she looks forward to supporting the base. Julie Lange from Scotiabank Trenton and Diane Gaffney from ScotiaMcLeod said they are thrilled to be involved as sponsors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We will have a team in there,â&#x20AC;? smiled Lange. Gaffney added they will have a CBC camera crew on site to get great exposure for this â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hockey Day in Canada.â&#x20AC;? Heather Candler, general manager of Batawa Development Corporation, said Batawa has a legacy supporting the military that goes back to 1939. She added that Batawa will have the first all female team entering the tournament. Councillor Jim Harrison thanked the organizers and the donors. Batawa Lion RenĂŠ LeFort was on hand for the presentation noting that the Lions maintain three rinks throughout the year, from freeze-up to melt-down in March.

“It’s reaching other people around the world”

The grade eights made presentations to all classes in the school about Operation Christmas Child and what could and could not be put in individual boxes. It was part of their grade eight world and media studies and the students were marked on their work. The Havelock gift boxes were transported to the local collection depot at Norwood Pentecostal Church and then transferred to Peterborough and shipped to Waterloo. In the photo are grade eight students (left to right) Vicki Wilcox, Kyle Caldwell, Holly Wilson, Sara Smith, Matt Altonen and Payton Tummon. Photo: Bill Freeman By Bill Freeman

News - Havelock-Belmont-Methuen When Jane Lester watches grade eight students at Havelock Belmont Public School collect Operation Christmas Child gift boxes, her heart is filled with joy and gratitude. Lester, of Havelock United Church, has been involved in Operation Christmas Child for nearly five years but took on a bigger role this year because area coordinator Ilona Bennett was at Sick Kids Hospital with her son Cole. Last week, she helped oversee

the local collection day at Norwood Pentecostal Church where over 250 shoe boxes filled with child-friendly toys, hygiene items, school supplies and others gifts were gathered up and transported to Peterborough. “It’s just reaching out to other people around the world, giving to others and helping someone in need,” she said while helping with the deadline collection last week. Lester was hopeful that they could push the total over the 300 mark. It truly was a community effort with

shoeboxes coming not only from HBPS but Roseneath Centennial Public School and churches from around the area including Havelock, Norwood, Cordova Mines, Campbellford and Lakefield. Even the 20th Peterborough Guides dropped off boxes. Lester is particularly pleased to see how Operation Christmas Child has grown in Havelock-BelmontMethuen in recent years. The efforts of young teens in Brenda Leeming’s grade eight class stand out, she says. “It’s wonderful (and) they’re using that as part of their curriculum. Those young teens are presenting to classrooms, to the little ones, and we get people thinking like that very early.” The shoe boxes are packed specifically for girls and boys and can include school supplies, personal hygiene items, toys and other gifts as well as a personal note: everything from tee-shirts and socks to stuffed animals, crayons and individually wrapped hard candy. Items that could scare or harm a child are prohibited, things like war-related toys, knives and toy guns. Operation Christmas Child is run by Samaritan’s Purse Canada, a non-

denominational evangelical Christian organization that has been providing spiritual and physical aid to needy people around the world since 1970. Operation Christmas Child started in 1990 and was adopted by Samaritan’s Purse in 1993. Last year, Canadians donated 662,312 shoeboxes to children around the globe. In 2013, Canadian gift boxes will be shipped to Costa Rica, El Salvador, Equatorial Guinea, Guatemala, Guinea, Guinea Bissau, Haiti, Ivory Coast, Nicaragua, Paraguay, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Uruguay, and Venezuela. “It’s an opportunity to reflect on life in Canada,” says Lester. “We have everything here. The boxes contain things we take for granted. Out of this we also talk about the need in our own communities. That is another thing to look at also.” “These children have never received a present or thought they’d ever get a present. This may be the only present they get in their lifetime; just the experience of opening a gift and not knowing what’s inside,” said Lester. “It’s touching the life of Melissa Taylor, a leader with the 20th Peterborough Guides, dropped off a child thousands of miles Operation Christmas Child boxes at Norwood Pentecostal Church during away. That’s pretty neat.” international collection week. Photo: Bill Freeman

Annual toy and food drive getting bigger every year

Close to 200 students from Hillcrest, Kent and St. Mary elementary schools stopped by the Campbellford Community Resource Centre last week to help fill Santa’s sleigh for the annual Campbellford Wish Toy and Food Drive organized by Trent Hills Fire Department and Community Living Campbellford/Brighton. Photo: John Campbell By John Campbell

News - Trent Hills – How’s this for out of the ordinary? Kids paying Santa a visit to drop off presents. That’s right, they give Santa gifts – to distribute to families who are feeling the pinch this winter. But, really, it’s not that unusual in Trent Hills. Firefighters and Community Living Campbellford/Brighton have been making it happen for years, and last week they had close to 200 kids from Hillcrest, Kent and St. Mary elementary schools drop by to fill Santa’s sleigh, said Dawn Lee, Community Living’s director of quality enhancement and community development. “This is the best turnout we’ve had ever,” added Nancy Brown, the agency’s

Get

executive director. “Every year it continues to grow. The kids really enjoy coming, (and) the teachers are really supportive.” She said the generosity of the children and their families “is very much appreciated” in making what has become a community event so successful. Their help “does make a difference.” She said Trent Hills Fire Chief Tim Blake has been “a real driving force” in helping the Christmas Wish Toy and Food Drive get better each year. Close to 100 families were helped in 2012, “probably the highest we ever had,” Blake said. Teachers at the local schools compile lists of students whose families are in need of toys and food, and anything left

over is donated to the Salvation Army to hand out, Lee said. “We’re looking at, hopefully, expanding to all the Trent Hills schools,” and include Hastings and Percy Centennial,” Blake said. The 2013 toy and food drive kicked off with a new event, a motorcycle ride held in September, which was “a very big success,” yielding 55 toys and about $700, Blake said. He was approached by John McEvoy and Murray Kirkland about holding a bike ride toy drive between the municipality’s three fire halls and the village of Trent River. Sixty-five people took par in the hour-long ride which finished at Campbellford where a barbecue was held The event gave the food and toy drive early “momentum ... and that makes a big difference,” Brown said. The same day the schoolchildren dropped by the resource centre, Nov. 19, boxes were delivered to various locations in the community where the public can drop off donations. Samantha Mills, a Grade 3 teacher at Kent Public School, said her school dedicates a week of activities to raising funds for Christmas presents. Families are nominated by teachers for assistance or they may come forward and “say they need a little extra this year,” she said. “Most years we’re looking at close to 15 to 20 families,” Mills said. “We’ve got lots of thank you letters, they just appreciate it so much.” People will be able to leave toys and food in the boxes until Dec. 12. On that day firefighters will go around to

collect the donated goods to take to the Campbellford fire hall where teachers with lists will pick up the items their students have asked Santa to give them. “It’s just wonderful that all the youth of our community have come out to help support other families who could use a little hand up,” said Trent Hills Mayor Hector Macmillan, who was the first to drop off presents in Santa’s sleigh at the Campbellford Community Resource Centre. “It’s something Sandy (his wife) and I really enjoy participating in every year and I’m just glad that there’s so many others in our community that are willing to do it and enjoy doing it. It’s heart-warming. There will be a lot of happy faces on Christmas day.”

(right) From the left, Grade 8 Hillcrest students, Joe Crothers, Arthur Drysdale, Jacob Alstrup, Hunter Kerr, Logan Blake and Nate Dunkley posed for a picture with Santa after joining close to other 200 elementary students for the formal launch of the annual Campbellford Wish Toy and Food Drive.

Central Hastings OPP Constable Alana Deubel gave several sessions on social media/ cyber bullying and student leaders attended a student wellness and bully prevention training session at the Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board office November 20. Foley, who was raised locally,

left his profession as a teacher to dedicate his life to encouraging others to “accept yourself and others for who and what we are.” Speaking from his own experiences of being “picked on and bullied” and relating a time he had been the bully, he encouraged students to “celebrate their differences” and “don’t be afraid to make mistakes.” “Think of how you want to be remembered, and make the changes today.

Two scams under investigation by OPP Northumberland - Police are investigating two scams brought to their attention November 22. A female resident in Alnwick-Haldimand Township reported she had received a call from someone who offered assistance with her computer’s Microsoft Windows operating system. She gave remote access to her computer but when the caller asked for $200, she realized she could be the victim of the fraud and shut down the machine. She subsequently cancelled all her credit cards and was not out any money, Northumberland OPP said in a news release.

In the second instance, a female resident in Hamilton Township reported receiving two Mystery Shopper cheques. She called the number provide and was instructed to shop at local businesses. She deposited one cheque for $2,000 but was later notified by her bank that it had been placed on hold because it was part of a scam. She then contacted the OPP. Both targets of the scam have been in contact with the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre. To learn more about fraud and how to protect yourself and family members, visit www.antifraudcentre.ca.
