Toni Carr medal winners

By Bill Freeman

News - Asphodel-Norwood – Township council has balked at a request from the Peterborough County-City Health Unit to pass a “smoking in certain placesâ€? bylaw that would prohibit smoking within a nine metre radius of places such as public parks, outdoor bleachers, benches, gazebos, playgrounds and beaches. “We went down this road once before,â€? mayor Doug Percy said alluding to the ďŹ rst efforts within the county more than a decade ago to ban smoking inside public facilities as well as bars and restaurants which caused noisy protest until the province stepped in to impose province-wide prohibitions and penalties. “The province came to our rescue by outlawing smoking (in those places),â€? said Pearcy. “I understand they are considering a new antismoking (law) that will include parks and outdoor decks et cetera so I’d like to sit back and table it (the health unit request).â€? The suggested bylaw would prohibit anyone from smoking or holding a lighted tobacco product within nine meters radius of any entrance or exit of a building owned and operated by the township. The ban would be extended to include a nine metre radius from the benches and bleachers at J. J. Stewart Field and the Westwood ball park as well as the playground equipment zone at the David McNeil/Carman Metcalfe Playground

Toni Carr Memorial Interclub medalists from the Norwood District Skating Club included (front row, left to right) Eliza Buchanan, Annika Vanderhorst and Marisha Thompson and (back row, left to right) Taylor Pederson, Chenise Chamberlain, Alexa Vanderhorst, Trevor Decker, Natalie Buchanan and Hailey McNeice.

Study charges provinceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health care failing elderly patients News - Campbellford â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health-care system is failing patients, especially the elderly, â&#x20AC;&#x153;who are often pushed out of hospital when still acutely ill or in need of ... restorative care and therapies,â&#x20AC;? says a study based on the experiences of hundreds of patients and their families. Pushed Out of Hospital, Abandoned At Home: After Twenty Years of Budget Cuts, Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Health System is Failing Patients slams the province for downsizing hospitals and cutting 19,000 acute care beds over two decades while moving toward an outpatient community-based care model that has proved inadequate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This has had a catastrophic impact on patient care,â&#x20AC;? the study says. Hospitals are â&#x20AC;&#x153;discharging patients too soon,â&#x20AC;? their outcomes are â&#x20AC;&#x153;poorer ... because of a lack of timely care,â&#x20AC;? and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re receiving â&#x20AC;&#x153;insufficient care at home or through community-based service providers.â&#x20AC;? The 63-page report, available at www.ochu., offers several case histories as anecdotal evidence to support its argument that changes in health care are needed. The information provided by individuals was collected over a year by means of a patient hotline that was a joint initiative of the Ontario Association of Speech-Language Professionals and Audiologists (OSLA) and the Ontario Council of Hospital Unions (OCHU), the hospital division of the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE). More than 600 calls were received. Michael Hurley, president of the Ontario Council of Hospital Unions, was in OCHU president Michael Hurley, who Campbellford recently to draw attention to a study that says the provinceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health-care system is failing patients, especially those who are elderly. was in Campbellford March 21 as part of a province-wide media tour to call attention Photo: John Campbell

to the studyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s findings, said â&#x20AC;&#x153;the bulk of the stories that we heard aboutâ&#x20AC;? were elderly people whose significant medical problems werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t dealt with properly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get the kind of care that you would expect them to,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a form of age discrimination thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going on in the Ontario health-care system, and the burden of the cuts that have happened in (hospitals) are felt primarily by the elderly and then by their families.â&#x20AC;? The health-care system appears to be saying that â&#x20AC;&#x153;if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re older you may not get the care that a younger person would,â&#x20AC;? even though it was members of the older generation â&#x20AC;&#x153;who fought the wars (and) built the country.â&#x20AC;? The report makes more than a dozen recommendations for improving health care in Ontario. They include: â&#x20AC;&#x201C; reopening chronic and alternative level of care beds â&#x20AC;&#x201C; providing critical speech-language pathology services in a timely fashion before patients leave the hospital and improving access to those same services in home care â&#x20AC;&#x201C; moving away from private for-profit delivery of home care, long-term care and pharmaceuticals â&#x20AC;&#x201C; improving the quality of home care supports â&#x20AC;&#x201C; increasing the development of new notfor-profit long-term care beds so frail and elderly people who require round-the-clock residential care receive it at a nursing home â&#x20AC;&#x201C; raising hospital restorative/rehabilitation professions and nursing care staffing levels to match standards across Canada. Hurley said thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s money available in the health care system, â&#x20AC;&#x153;if used intelligently,â&#x20AC;? to

implement what the study has recommended. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m hoping we can shame all three political parties into taking a look at it,â&#x20AC;? he said. All three â&#x20AC;&#x153;pursued the same policies of downsizingâ&#x20AC;? when they held power and â&#x20AC;&#x153;they all need to be held accountable.â&#x20AC;? The reportâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s release was to â&#x20AC;&#x153;apply as much public pressure as possible,â&#x20AC;? Hurley said. When told of the various programs Campbellford Memorial Hospital has undertaken, including restorative care and senior friendly programs, to deal with the sort of concerns identified in the study, Hurley said that â&#x20AC;&#x153;in smaller communities, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fair to say people are probably getting very good care. The danger really is that the plan of the provincial government is to consolidate more and more hospital services ... into larger centres.â&#x20AC;? The impact could be â&#x20AC;&#x153;very, very serious for what are really great smaller community hospitals,â&#x20AC;? he said. Hurley also acknowledged that â&#x20AC;&#x153;thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of positive things about the Ontario health-care system.â&#x20AC;? The care is of â&#x20AC;&#x153;a very high standardâ&#x20AC;? and the outcomes are â&#x20AC;&#x153;much, much betterâ&#x20AC;? than those south of the border, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;â&#x20AC;?Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re drawing attention in particular to a group thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s getting the short end of the stick.â&#x20AC;? OCHUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Doug Allan said in an email that â&#x20AC;&#x153;Contrary to the suggestion of some, health care spending continues to decline as a percentage of the provincial budget.â&#x20AC;? In the fiscal year 2012-13, health care accounted for 38.5 per cent of total expenditures; for 2013-14) the government planned to bring it down to 38.3 per cent. This â&#x20AC;&#x153;continues the trend downwardsâ&#x20AC;? since 2003-04 when health care accounted for 40 per cent of total expenditures.

Council balks at smoke-free parks bylaw and Skateboard Park, Westwood Park, Asphodel Park and Asphodel Heights Park. There would be no smoking allowed within a nine metre radius of a gazebo, beach or shade shelter at the Norwood Millpond, Asphodel Park, Community Centre Park and Lions Park. The bylaw would not apply to any portion of a public road allowance or private property. Councillor Roy Millett agreed with the mayor and said council should table the bylaw until the province steps in. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have no one to enforce it and the health unit isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going to enforce it; they can, but they wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t,â&#x20AC;? Millett said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It just caused so much turmoil the last time and (then) the province said thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the end of that. I know the province is prepared to tackle this (legislation with a bill regarding smoking in public places).â&#x20AC;? Council politely declined the health unitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s invitation to enact a bylaw. Currently, Selwyn Township, the Township of Cavan-Monaghan and the City of Peterborough have enacted smoking in certain public places bylaws.

Two-year commitment

Yes Mr. Groves, my mind is intact Dear Editor, Without wishing to get into a battle through the letters column, I would like to assure Mr.Groves that I am sane and as well-informed as the next reader. As to his suggestion that I consult the Internet, well no, I seek wisdom and knowledge not information. He let me off quite lightly actually, not even mentioning the Senate Scandal, but missed my point. Does he label the mayor of Belleville for example or Councillor Lafferty or Councillor Mary Tadman of Brighton with the terms he used in his letter? They are, after all, our

politicians. His request for â&#x20AC;&#x153;What have you (me) done?â&#x20AC;? is answered by Past-President of Sagonnaska Kiwanis, to qualified soccer referee with six other community-related positions in between. Yes, Mr.Grovesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; wish and efforts to ensure that voters be informed about their choice is certainly a positive. A difficult task indeed in which personal opinions should be gently stated. Mr. Grovesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; opinions on politicians do not give me the confidence to be swayed by him, certainly not informed. John Morralee, Belleville

Knopf in August 2013. No stranger to helping the people of Africa, Sylver Stephens of Warkworth has again taken on the role of organizing the Trent Hills Grannies for Africa spring fundraiser. This is her second year with the group. Trent Hills Grannies for Africa members are part of a nation-wide movement affiliated with the Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign which supports the Stephen Lewis Foundation, which, in turn, helps to sustain communities in sub-Saharan Africa working hard to turn the tide of the AIDS pandemic. This will be the 8th season of fundraising for the Trent Hills Grannies for Africa. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Grannies of Africa raise their grandchildren and also take on the responsibility of looking after other orphaned children in their community as a generation of young people has been wiped out by the AIDS pandemic,â&#x20AC;? Stephens said.  â&#x20AC;&#x153;Women are marginalized in these patriarchal communities and yet somehow the courageous Grannies carry on. They look after the children, and their households in the townships that they live in. They till the soil, or they work. They find some way to take care of their now extended families, they teach, they look after the ill, and bury their dead,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are the core and the hope of their communities. Grannies are now starting to be recognized as community experts and agents for change by governments and international aid agencies.  They have come a long way but still need help,â&#x20AC;? she added.

great number” of them. Peters also represented Percy Ward on Trent Hills council where he once held the position of deputy mayor. One nominator described Peters as “the go-to person when something needs doing the community,” Rutter said. Nicole, 11, “has been the top youth fundraiser for the Trent Hills Relay for Life two years in a row.” Last year she spent six months going door-to-door to raise more than $2,400, Rutter said. The HPS Leadership Group, made up of students from grades 5 to 8, “volunteer their time during recesses, lunches and after school to provide younger students with opportunities to take part in activities and to enrich their school experience,” he said. Russell was chosen for his creation of a multi-paneled display dedicated to the life and works of J.D. Kelly, an artist whose paintings of Canadian historical events is renowned. The Campbellford-Seymour Heritage Society, which celebrated its 30th anniversary last year, increases public awareness of local heritage in all its activities, and provides a wealth of information to people around the world researching family trees. Also honoured were: Agricultural Leadership Award – Percy Agricultural Society, a not-forprofit organization established in 1850 that hosts the Warkworth Fall Fair, and the Warkworth Western Weekend and rodeo. Accessibility Award – Tim Hortons which recently added a visual order display in the drive-thru for the benefit of hearing-impaired customers. Cultural Award of Merit – Nancy Elmhirst, a retired music teacher who “led many musical ensembles through countless top-level performances” and instilled in her students “the joy of lifelong learning. Last fall she started a holiday wind ensemble as a pilot project that grew to 25 members. Recreation and Sport – John Rogers, who served 15 years on the board of directors for the Campbellford, and two years as its general manager. He organized indoor soccer program for children seven to 12 years of age to engage children not enrolled in hockey. It was “a great success,” Rutter said,

with more than 50 children signing up for its first year. Sporting Excellence – Campbellford Cougars who captured an All-Ontario bantam softball championship. Architectural Conservation Award – Janice Bell for her work in restoring the stone facade of a 150-year-old house in Campbellford. Trent Hills also paid tribute to the many volunteers whose work on various committees help make their community better. “You fill in the gaps where we don’t have the time or ... the expertise or ... the energy sometimes, quite frankly,” Rutter said, in expressing the municipality’s gratitude.

Local Tim Hortons owner Doug Robertson and his son Jim accepted the Accessibility Award.

Bridge issue shows itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time for a new mayor

Dear Editor, A story in one of the local papers on Wednesday March 26 on the public meeting regarding a second bridge in Campbellford was headlined â&#x20AC;&#x153;Time for a new bridge: Mayorâ&#x20AC;?. Judging by the reaction of the public to the proposed bypass, the headline should more appropriately have been â&#x20AC;&#x153;Time for a new mayor: the peopleâ&#x20AC;?. The mayor said â&#x20AC;&#x153;despite pronounced public opposition,â&#x20AC;? which has gone

on for nearly seven years, he remains determined to ram it down our throats. He completely disregards the destruction it would wreak on beautiful heritage neighbourhoods and in fact the town as a whole. A second bridge is completely unwarranted; population growth has been less than one percent over 25 years. Statistics show that vehicular use is in decline in North America. MacMillan went on to say that, â&#x20AC;&#x153;residents lack the technical background

to make an informed decision on a major infrastructure project.â&#x20AC;? This illustrates his exceedingly condescending, offensive and insulting attitude towards the people of Trent Hills. Instead of this unjustifiable rush to destroy the heart and character of our town, we should endeavour to enhance the beauty of the lovely neighbourhoods that surround the downtown core. One of the main strengths of living in Campbellford is the peaceful and tranquil lifestyle we all enjoy. We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t attract industry but we sure can attract people who want to leave the crush of the city for a more genteel life. Campbellford provides an opportunity to live close to

downtown and an opportunity to interact with our neighbours. A place where residents can walk, cycle, shop and dine without having to get in a car and drive. One where residents and visitors can share in our leisure activities. The popular skateboard park and splash pad come to mind as well as the soccer pitches, bowling green and tennis courts. A place where boaters enjoy stopping in the summer. Residents and visitors bring with them many things including knowledge, experience, expertise, talent and wealth to name a few. They will spend locally to support our merchants, which will help fill some of the numerous empty

stores to revitalize the downtown core. We should be playing to our strengths not against them. Campbellford is so much greater than concrete, roads and bridges. It is a social enterprise and should be treated as such. Putting this grotesque bypass through the middle of a residential area where neighbours meet and children play, would be the death knell for a town which, with the proper leadership could be made into a jewel in the crown of Northumberland county. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not destroy what we have to build on. Respectfully, Dwight Boyd, Warkworth

Birthplace shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter when expressing an opinion Dear Editor: As I sat  in the bleachers at the back of the public information centre for the Campbellford bridge (environmental assessment)  I was quite impressed with residentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; questions. One thing struck me that although the residents gave their name before they addressed the committee many of them stated how long they had resided in the community. It was like they felt they had to validate their question by saying they were a long-term resident. When you think about it, anyone who moves here, maybe opens a   business, contributes to the overall economy has

the right to vote, etc., should be able to challenge and look for honest answers about things that will affect their chosen community. It should not be a matter that they were born at the Campbellford hospital to express an opinion. I have personally experienced this where I have been told by the mayor no less that I should go back to where I came from despite being in the area since 1988. When are you local and not an outsider for some? I was amazed that some new information came out   almost seven years in that had never been publicized

before. The transportation director for the county admitted that the road improvements for Second and Alma would be the responsibility of Trent Hills. After all this time I wish they would present all  the material so the public actually knows what is proposed and when? Still so many unanswered questions for something that should be decided by a council years and years from now instead of putting people through all this runaround and stress.

Climate Change: Documenting the obvious Editorial - If you want to go on eating regularly in a rapidly warming world, then live in a place that’s either high in latitude or high in altitude. Alternatively, be rich, because the rich never starve. But otherwise, prepare to be hungry. That’s the real message of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s report on the impact of warming on human beings, released this week: the main impact is on the food Gwynne Dyer supply. Of course, everybody who was paying attention has already known that for years, including the scientists. It’s just that scientists are professionally cautious, and will not say anything that they cannot prove beyond any shadow of a doubt. But the World Bank, for example, has long known approximately how much food production every major country will lose when the average global temperature is 2 degrees C higher. At least seven years ago it gave contracts to think tanks in every major capital to answer precisely that question. What the think tanks told the World Bank was that India will lose 25 percent of its food production. China, I have been told by somebody who saw the report from the Beijing think tank, will lose a catastrophic 38 percent. But these results have never been published, because the governments concerned did not want such alarming numbers out in public and were able to restrain the World Bank from releasing them. So, too, for example, the armed forces of many countries have been incorporating predictions of this sort into their scenarios of the future for at least five years. The Pentagon and the Central Intelligence Agency in the United States and the British armed forces have been doing it openly, and I have seen strong indications that the Russian, Indian, Pakistani, Chinese and Japanese armed forces are also doing so. When you look at the scenarios in detail, they do not just predict serious food shortages in most tropical and subtropical countries (which account for about 70 percent of the world’s population). They predict waves of refugees fleeing

from these countries, a proliferation of failed states in the subtropics, and even inter-state wars between countries that must share the same river system when there’s not enough water to go around. That’s still farther than the IPCC is prepared to go, but to the military it’s as obvious as the nose on your face. As for what will happen to crop yields by 2050, assuming an average global temperature 3 degrees C higher by then, you have to go elsewhere for information. The military don’t plan that far ahead. But the World Resources Institute published a map recently that estimated the losses country by country by 2050, and according to the WRI’s calculations they are really bad by then. Crop yields are down everywhere in the Middle East and the Mediterranean countries. In Morocco, Egypt and Saudi Arabia, they are down by 50 percent. All of Africa is down except Lesotho, Rwanda and Kenya, which are all or mostly above 1,000 metres in altitude. Food production is down in almost all of South America except Chile, also very high, where it is up. Crop yields in North America are down too, except in Canada and a few US states right along the Canadian border. High latitude is even better than high altitude. In Europe and Asia, latitude is decisive. Countries far away from the equator will still be doing well; countries even a bit closer to the equator get hammered. Russia, Scandinavia, Germany and Poland will be producing more food than ever, but southern Europe including the Balkans and even France and Ukraine will have lost production. India, China, and all of South-East Asia will be sharply down, as will Australia – but Japan will be only a bit down and New Zealand will be sharply up. It pays to be an island, too. But this is not a “mixed” result, in the sense that it all works out about even. The total population of all the countries where food production will be stable or higher in 2050 will be less than half a billion. At least eight-and-a-half or nine billion will live in countries where food production has fallen, sometimes very steeply. It will be a very hungry world.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Criticism of Green Energy Act was unfair Dear Editor Re: Another black mark added to Liberal legacy (March 20, 2014) I wish to respond to the following statement made by Rolly Ethier, “This (passage of the Green Energy Act) of course has resulted in doubling your energy costs from Hydro One.” According to the Hydro One website, with the latest rates (Jan. 7, 2014) in effect, the “Typical medium density residential customer using 800 kWh/month” bill is broken down as follows: • 42 per cent of the bill is to pay for generation (over 300 firms such as OPG, Bruce Power, Huron Wind, etc.) and • 58 per cent of the bill is for delivery, HST, debt retirement and regulatory changes. In other words, 42 per cent of our every dollar billed and paid goes to generate the power from all sources such as nuclear, hydro, thermal, wind and solar. Of all the money paid to all the generators within the province of Ontario, the “Green Energy Act” generators received 10.9 per cent ( Only 10.9 per cent of the 42 per cent portion of the bill that gets paid to all generators goes to “Green Energy Act” generators. To simplify the above, out of every $100 paid on a “typical medium-density residential customer using 800 kWH/month” account, $4.58 is paid to “Green Energy Act” generators. That is 4.58 per cent of the total portion of the current

“typical” hydro bill. Using inflammatory rhetoric such as “This (passage of the Green Energy Act) of course, has resulted in doubling your energy costs from Hydro One” only whitewashes a complex set of pressures on cost. Some of the major pressures on cost are: • the fact that all energy costs continue to rise now that “true costs” are no longer being “externalized” • the distribution network, which has suffered from decades of “an infrastructure deficit” is now being updated and • the standard costs involving the production of nuclear power are also finally being addressed. If the Green Energy Act” generators did not exist, for every $100 currently paid on a hydro bill, one would receive $4.58 back …. PRIOR to what it would cost to make up the shortfall in production that those “Green Energy Act” producers did provide to the grid. In 2013, 4.2 per cent of all power produced was produced by “Green Energy Act” generators, costing customers 4.6 per cent of their total bill. I would suggest, prior to pronouncing what is “doubling” energy costs, that one employ a closer inspection of standard nuclear power costs and distribution network rehabilitation costs. R.M.

Big business still needs to learn a big lesson By John Campbell Editorial - It’s getting so you can’t trust big business. More than ever. Consider the following: Toyota recently agreed to pay $1.2 billion for misleading consumers about problems with sticking gas pedals that caused its vehicles to accelerate unexpectedly. The unintended acceleration was blamed for the death of a family of four five years ago in San Diego when their Lexus sped up without warning and crashed. The Japanese company tried to limit the damage to its reputation by not making a full safety recall and, said a FBI assistant director, even “continued to manufacture new cars with the same parts they knew were deadly.” Toyota still faces a criminal charge for what it did but the United States government deferred prosecution for three years when the car maker agreed to submit to monitoring over that period. Toyota is not the only auto manufacturer to land in hot water for decision-making seemingly more concerned with protecting the bottom line than the lives of the people who buy its products. General Motors will have to deal with a slew of class-action lawsuits now after it announced last month that ignition switches in some of its older models need to be fixed and that it was recalling more than 1.6 million vehicles. That’s not the troubling part; it’s the length of time it took for GM to acknowledge there was a problem. The company admitted it knew at least 11 years ago there was an issue but waited until last month to recall the cars with the faulty ignition switch – the same piece of equipment said to have been responsible for at least a dozen fatal crashes. When GM’s new chief executive, Mary Barra, met with reporters she apologized for the company not having acted sooner. “I am very sorry for the loss of life that occurred, and we will take every step to make sure this never happens again,” she said. GM will also conduct its own investigation into how all this came to pass. How is it possible that a corporation with as many resources and as long a history as GM could have allowed this sort of thing to happen? Barra said no one at GM has been dismissed or disciplined because of the delay in making the recall but someone needs to be held to account. That this might not come to pass is what is so baffling for blunders of this magnitude, where decisions are made at corporate levels that adversely affect so many people, even costing them their lives in the worst instances, and the individuals responsible too often do not pay the price. Look no further than the financial meltdown that occurred several years ago when bankers and financiers let greed get the better of them and took high-stake risks with other people’s money. Not surprisingly, their shady schemes backfired and triggered a recession, the effects of which continue to this day. People lost their homes, jobs, and investments and the economy still hasn’t recovered, despite billions of dollars in bailouts by governments. But what of the deal-makers, the money men at fault for people’s lives being ruined and futures shattered? None have been charged for white collar crimes that stagger the imagination in their enormity. Although no slaughter took place, their actions constituted a crime against humanity in that they cared so little about the consequences their behaviour would have on society as a whole. The immense harm that they’ve done cannot be understated, nor the anger and frustration that many rightfully feel because justice hasn’t been served. Although the reputations of Toyota and GM were damaged by recent events, they do make good products or they wouldn’t have survived as long as they have. What led them astray are the same forces that beset other global conglomerates, a mindset and ethos that attach too much importance to the making of profits and not enough to exercising a social conscience. Such thinking would exert less influence in big business if the culprits knowingly making decisions to the detriment of society and in violation of laws were made to pay for their misdeeds. The prospect of prison terms made real by governments committed to vigorously pursuing miscreants would do wonders for the promotion of business ethics by injecting a welcome dose of empathy and regard for others in the boardrooms of the nation. Even then, for many, the guiding principle would remain self-interest – staying out of jail – but no matter. If the objective then becomes continuing to enjoy personal freedom while abiding by the laws of the land and not accruing enormous wealth at all costs, why that would have to be seen as a good thing.

Student will make TV debut with anti-bullying message

By Bill Freeman

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Hastings â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Antje Kroes of Hastings is a passionate and eloquent advocate for anti-bullying efforts and sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll take her message province-wide April 9 when she appears on Global Television. The highly regarded Hastings Public School (HPS) Grade 7 student will join a few other students she met at a Breakfast Club of Canada leadership camp in Parry Sound this past February in a discussion about bullying and things young people and society in general can do to address the issue. Antje was chosen to represent HPS at the camp and was one of a handful from the 54 students selected to appear on Global TV and their anti-bullying segment which coincides with National Day

of Pink. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was an amazing experience to do so many activities and learn so much with other students,â&#x20AC;? Antje said of the week-long leadership camp. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People need to learn what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re saying in their messages,â&#x20AC;? she said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and we need to learn to read between the lines a little bit ... Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of bullying and we need to figure out how to stop it.â&#x20AC;? On the television show Antje said she hopes to talk about â&#x20AC;&#x153;ways to fix it and to just get people aware of whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happening.â&#x20AC;? Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not nervous at all. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think it will be really fun.â&#x20AC;? Antje says Hastings Public School is a very calm environment where â&#x20AC;&#x153;people do talk to each other. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have done a lot of anti-bullying days. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good

Antje is modest about her place in the school but does concede that her fellow students look to her as something of a role model. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They kind of look at me a little bit as (a role model) but they need to see that if I do something wrong they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t copy it either. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not perfect and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m willing to say it but they need to see it too and they do and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Speaking out is important,â&#x20AC;? she stressed.

Plans for first Shop Asphodel-Norwood Day going well

News - Asphodel-Norwood â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Plans for the first-ever â&#x20AC;&#x153;Shop Asphodel-Norwoodâ&#x20AC;? day are â&#x20AC;&#x153;going very well,â&#x20AC;? says township CAO Joe van Koeverden. The May 17 trade fair-like event showcasing local businesses and organizations is part of a broader and â&#x20AC;&#x153;fully self-supportingâ&#x20AC;? marketing effort by the township and its economic development

advisory committee which has adopted a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Come Live With Usâ&#x20AC;? motto to attract potential new residents and businesses to the municipality. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are a number of things going on right now,â&#x20AC;? van Koeverden said of the marketing plan. Initiatives include development of a promotional brochure, an additional Come Live With Us website that will be linked to the townshipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s site, and the Shop Asphodel-Norwood Day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good program,â&#x20AC;? van Koeverden said. As part of the marketing plan organizers are selling different sponsorship packages (gold, silver, bronze, complementary and a la carte) which offer a variety of promotional opportunities including booth space at the May 17 show; there will also be advertising

space provided to sponsors in the brochure and on the Come Live With Us website. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have sold all the sponsorships which include all the advertisements and inserts,â&#x20AC;? van Koeverden told council during its regular meeting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We still have some booths in the community centre and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to get those sold up. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think the momentum is picking up good,â&#x20AC;? he said. Shop Asphodel-Norwood will also feature food tasting in the Millennium Room offered by at least eight different people (caterers, restaurants etc.) providing samples of their products as well as entertainment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There has been a really good response to (the event),â&#x20AC;? said township hospitality coordinator Vicky Best.

booth vendors signed up with more to come; this week they began to accept requests from community organizations. Best says theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to provide space that will allow organizations to hold a community yard sale. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We might even go outside as well,â&#x20AC;? she added. The event takes some of its inspiration from the very successful Celebrate Havelock trade fair, Best said.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are looking for more vendors, entertainment and groups for demonstrations.â&#x20AC;? There will be a stage for entertainment as well as demonstrations and plenty of door prizes. The Donegal Fiddlers are confirmed as are Razberry the Clown and Sparky the Safety Dog. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are looking for more vendors, entertainment and groups for demonstrations,â&#x20AC;? Best said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All booths will be very separate.â&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Van Koeverden said the marketing program is designed to be â&#x20AC;&#x153;full cost recoveryâ&#x20AC;? with advertising revenue meeting expenses. The municipality has applied for a $2,000 grant from Foodland Ontario to help cover some of the advertising costs associated with promoting the Shop Asphodel-Norwood Day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are a number of ways to make it public,â&#x20AC;? van Koeverden said. The townshipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s overall marketing program is targeting â&#x20AC;&#x153;regional familiesâ&#x20AC;? who are willing to commute to enjoy the rural lifestyle, entrepreneurs â&#x20AC;&#x153;looking for opportunities for small business ventures with complementary services to build a critical mass to attract regular clientele and steady cash flow,â&#x20AC;? and local seniors and retirees who want to â&#x20AC;&#x153;age in a community in proximity to friends and family. The economic advisory committee believes the municipalityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top priority is developing a â&#x20AC;&#x153;plan to increase (the) population base.â&#x20AC;?

News – Campbellford – The only thing constant in life is change and further proof of the maxim was provided last week in the form of a farewell celebration to mark the end of the Career Opportunities Project in Campbellford. Last July it was announced that Career Edge had taken over the function of the Employment Resource Centre from Community Living Campbellford/Brighton as part of a provincewide initiative by Employment Ontario to consolidate services it funds to eliminate duplication. The Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities (MTCU) introduced a new Employment Service Delivery model in August 2010. The model allows Ontarians to find the employment and training programs and services they need in one location rather than going from place to place The 18-month transition resulted in a seamless changeover locally because people have still been able to access the same services at the agency’s Campbellford Community Resource Centre (CCRC) on Bridge Street,

The Career Opportunities Project, operated by Community Living Campbellford/Brighton, has closed. A celebration of its past success took place last week: from left, Barb Rockwell, administrator for the past six years, Nancy Brown, executive director of Community Living Campbellford/Brighton, and Jane McCulloch, project facilitator for the past four years.

where Career Edge has been a tenant As part of this transition, howevfor two years. er, the Career Opportunities Project

closed its doors at the resource centre the end of March. It had offered employment workshops and individual assistance since 1989 to residents of Trent Hills. Three employees saw their contracts come to an end as a result of the closure. They knew this was going to happen and so have been busy making plans for their future. Barb Rockwell, of Norwood, who has been administrator for the past six years, and Jane McCulloch, of Madoc, who has been project facilitator for the past four years, will be moving in a different direction. “I might sub with some literacy things and I might try to work at a funeral home part-time,” Rockwell said. “Prior to coming to work here I was working on a clothing project for women, work wear, fancy clothes to wear in the garden,” McCulloch said. “it was a business. I would like to pick that up again.” The third employee, Janice Carman, who was the project administration person, left earlier this year and has found another position. Career Opportunities Project, ini-

tially funded in part by the federal government to assist persons with disabilities to enhance their job searching skills, assisted approximately 1,500 participants and assessed more than 3,000 people. Career Edge will continue to operate as the employment service provider for the residents of Trent Hills at the Campbellford Community Resource Centre. Nancy Brown, executive director of Community Living Campbellford/Brighton, said the community resource centre “absolutely will still remain open and we will still offer employment opportunities under Carolyn Anderson, who is our community resource centre administrator, making sure we are still offering all those community supports such as college courses, interest courses, our lab, as well as our hub that offers community supports in our area.” Anderson admitted the loss of the employees “is sad. “I just think we are really going to miss the personality and professionalism of the girls who are leaving. They did not only their jobs but a lot of other things and we were a great team.”

Access to recreation policy encouraging, says council conducted by some townships involve sports groups but Dawson says the health unit could assist municipalities if they wanted to broaden the survey to include residents. “It sounds pretty good to me as long as it’s not a big financial obligation,” said mayor Doug Pearcy. “In this

community we have excellent organizations. One of the things we need to do is unplug the computers.” Councillor Mary Hay questioned the language of the policy. “I sometimes find that people equate recreation to sports. When I read the word recre-

ation am I seeing sports or am I seeing recreation? There is more to recreation than sports. What is it we’re talking about? Are we narrowing down our recreation meaning to sports? “It talks physical and it talks sports but it doesn’t meet my definition of recreation or recreation

in the context of healthy communities. You haven’t made it out to the social and cultural. We need to keep the bigger picture in mind,” Hay said. Dawson appreciated Hay’s concern. “This policy is intended to be all-encompassing looking at all

activities including trails, bike paths and sidewalks,” she said. “There is still a lot of work we can do to look at free play spaces,” she said. “I think it’s a slow process; we’re taking baby steps but it’s definitely on our radar. That’s where we want to go.”


News – Asphodel-Norwood – Township council is impressed by an initiative that has brought together Peterborough County’s eight municipalities, the City of Peterborough and the County-City Health Unit to look at ways to make recreation “more accessible, affordable and inclusive.” “I think that many rural municipalities are facing the same challenges (in) making sure they have a variety of programs available but still that costs remain low,” says Janet Dawson, a health promoter with the health unit and chair of the access to recreation committee, told council. A four-page policy statement has been approved by the committee; it encourages municipalities to support a “broad range of recreation programs and services” and to “develop and maintain recreation facilities, parks, trails, nature areas, heritage and cultural assets to ensure residents have access to recreational experiences.” Dawson says it all started when the health unit received a request from two townships looking for help to survey residents about recreational needs. “The health unit decided it wanted to support the two townships but at the same time offered the invitation to all townships to come together to look for a solution in a creative manner.” They’ve been meeting since last fall “sharing some of their ideas and struggles in ways to make recreation more accessible and affordable,” said Dawson. Most municipalities are in no position to offer subsidies so the group has looked at external programs like Jump Start and Kids Sport. “Many municipalities don’t have information going to residents about these funding opportunities,” she said. The committee’s members, mostly facility managers, also decided they needed to talk to their various sporting groups. The facility managers “solidif(ied) this through a recreation policy” which they drafted and approved. “We’re looking at ways municipalities can support this kind of work,” said Dawson. In January they applied for $100,000 from the Ontario Sport and Recreation Fund to “support some of this work.” The health unit is not eligible to apply so it was done on behalf of all nine municipalities.

Numerous issues raised at Rinaldi meet and greet By Sue Dickens

News – Campbellford – A meet and greet hosted by former MPP and Liberal candidate Lou Rinaldi, became a forum for ranting on many topics important to the roomful of residents and politicians who attended last week. Discussion about the closure of the Kemptville campus by the University of Guelph and rising hydro rates dominated the meeting here but other issues were also raised, ranging from the Campbellford bridge controversy to the Trent-Severn Waterway cutbacks, as well as problems with the Ontario Heritage online grant online system, the health care system, to the ORNGE air ambulance and Ontario gas plant scandals. For Rinaldi the event was about “reaching out to the communities,” but he also made it clear it was also about his political agenda. “This is the fourth one we’ve done to reach out to smaller communities,” he told the Independent. “I am the candidate, I will be running (in the next provincial election) and it’s time to renew acquaintances with each community and see what the hot buttons are,” After losing the 2011 election Rinaldi has continued to work for the Liberal party “looking into rural issues” and reporting back to caucus. “The purpose of the meeting tonight is to see if I see any kind of trends, identify issues in general . . . to identify issues a candidate should know about when the election comes,” he explained. Trent Hills Mayor Hector Macmillan tackled rising hydro costs and said, “It’s time to push the Ombudsman to continue to investigate Hydro One.” “We realize we cannot afford to pay the full cost of electricity. It’s our expectancy our province will subsidize it.” He also talked about what he called,

“an attack on rural Ontario from Premier Kathleen Wynne,” who is also the Minister of Agriculture and Food and Minister of Intergovernmental Affairs. Noting the government “Is about to offer municipalities new revenue tools,” to help with costs, Macmillan said, “We don’t want any new revenue tools. We don’t want any more ways of sucking money out of people’s pockets. We want the province to redistribute the money they already got and if that means taking some of programs down a notch to fund Hydro One then that’s what we want.” Rinaldi agreed his own hydro bill “has doubled,” but disagreed that the premier is ignoring rural Ontario, “otherwise why is she now scrambling to keep Kemptville from being closed.” Councillor Eugene Brahaney, a local farmer, said removing a centre of agriculture, the Kemptville campus, from Eastern Ontario “is a serious blow.” Others echoed his sentiment. Rinaldi said St. Lawrence College and Algonquin colleges have responded to a request to seek solutions to retain programs currently delivered at the Kemptville campus. Arlene Dorland, president of the Northumberland Federation of Agriculture, who has gone on record as being opposed to the campus closure, responded: “I love the ideas of partners ... There are farmers that would contribute to this program. I’m glad to see the community there has rallied and there are politicians working on this.” Rinaldi made it clear to everyone he wanted their input, whether he agreed or not, and “to continue to serve the residents of Northumberland-Quinte West”. “The Liberal government has not been fiscally responsible,” a member of the audience said. “And you’re expecting to get back in (as MPP)? Then good luck.”

Winter’s over, who needs long hair?

After graduating from Campbellford District High School, Eric Nestoruk decided to let his hair grow long “just for fun.” About 18 months ago he realized he “could do more with (his) hair than have a look” by taking pledges to get it cut and to donate the shorn locks to Continental Hair to be used in the making of wigs for children being treated for cancer. He had raised $525 by the time he sat down last Saturday morning for a haircut at the hands of Tanya Orr at her Front Street salon. “The girls would pay a lot of money to have hair like that,” Orr said, before making braids of it and cutting them off.

discussion with Sonny Lennon, president of the 67-year-old Warkworth Service Club; Monica Johnston, co-owner of Frantic Farms Clay and Glass and Gallery and the Cara Mia Bakery with her husband Paulus Tjiang; and Mike Metcalf co-owner with Aiden McGill of the popular Hastings restaurant Banjoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Grill, IceCreamville and Energy Entertainment and Recordings. Lennon provided insight into community partnerships, Johnston spoke about success through business collaboration, and Metcalf talked about success through business partnerships. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The focus this year is on helping businesses promote themselves, market themselves (and) this idea of bonding together and success through partnerships,â&#x20AC;? chamber president Jeff Hamilton told the Independent. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of the main things Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to see come out of this is the networking, people talking and sharing the fact that we all face some of the same challenges and ultimately how we can overcome some of them.â&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Your network becomes bigger as you have all these various partnerships. The club wants to succeed because everyone who lives here wants it to succeed.â&#x20AC;? The biggest challenge, Lennon said, was â&#x20AC;&#x153;getting everybody focused on the same path.â&#x20AC;? When they are, â&#x20AC;&#x153;thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the easiest part of collaboration.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whatever youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing working as a team is important,â&#x20AC;? added Johnston speaking of co-operative advertising. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It really does make sense to pool your resources.â&#x20AC;? Metcalf and McGill have been working together for 15 years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Each partner is going to excel in different areas. Even through separate businesses we follow the same paths where our strengths are. You need to ďŹ nd out what works best in your situation.â&#x20AC;? Having a â&#x20AC;&#x153;clear understanding of each otherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s role in a businessâ&#x20AC;? is crucial, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If each partner is kind of trying to do it all it kind of negates it all.â&#x20AC;? The biggest challenges, Metcalf added, are â&#x20AC;&#x153;differences of opinionâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;staying on track.â&#x20AC;?

Kinsmen challenge residents to recycle more electronic waste this year News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Campbellford â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Kinsmen Club of Campbellford is hoping to beat last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s haul at its second annual Electronic Waste Recycling Day April 12. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You know it was a fantastic success last year even thought it was a terrible day in September, just hammering down rain, yet the folks got out and brought us their stuff and put it into the container here,â&#x20AC;? said project chair Robert Watkins, the clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s secretary and press officer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The container was about 85 per cent full so we are challenging our residents to get over the four-and-a-half tonnes we collected last fall.â&#x20AC;? Residents can drop off a wide range of old, broken or unused electronic items free of charge. The items will be processed under the Ontario Electronic Stewardship program which diverts many tonnes of waste from landfill.  â&#x20AC;&#x153;Many of us have a corner of the basement or garage stuffed with a number of these items. Here is a great chance to gain some space and make sure these old electronic devices are disposed of in the most environmentally friendly way possible,â&#x20AC;?

Watkins said. Examples of eligible electronic waste items include telephones, televisions, cell phones, stereo equipment and computer components. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The main thing today is to get people to understand that household appliances, washers dryers, et cetera, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not part of it, it has to be electronics,â&#x20AC;? Watkins said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Large and small household appliances are not included in this pick-up program,â&#x20AC;? he added. Ontario Electronic Stewardship is a notfor-profit industry organization that oversees the responsible reuse and recycling of waste electronics through a program that includes 600 collection sites and numerous other affiliate sites across the province. The program was developed with Waste Diversion Ontario on behalf of the provincial government under the Waste Diversion Act, 2002. The organization encourages residents and businesses to safely recycle their endof-life electronics. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our Electronic Waste Recycling day is an opportunity for residents to help the environment and reclaim some personal

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Brighton â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been nearly four years marked by contention presiding over a divided council, but Mayor Mark Walas is eager to remain at the helm for another term. He followed through on a vow he made earlier this year to run again by filing his nomination papers last Thursday, all the while sounding upbeat about Brightonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s future.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is just a fabulous place to live,â&#x20AC;? he said, and â&#x20AC;&#x153;it has been my honour to represent the municipality.â&#x20AC;? Walas said he has â&#x20AC;&#x153;learned an awful lotâ&#x20AC;? his first term in office. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a tremendous learning curveâ&#x20AC;? and the experience he gained and the support heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s received in phone calls, letters and â&#x20AC;&#x153;words of encouragementâ&#x20AC;? led him to seek reelection.

Public meeting for methadone clinic raises concerns

By Kate Everson

News – Quinte West – A public meeting on a proposed methadone clinic in downtown Trenton raised a few concerns. “What are the checks and balances?” asked one person at the meeting held March 26 at the Knights of Columbus hall. Michael Piercy, chair of the

Quinte West Community Health Centre (CHC) that will be housing the clinic, said there will be no medications on site. “If we need security, we will get the OPP,” he said. “I don’t believe it will happen.” Piercy said more people are taking methadone because they are trying to come off the pre-

scription drug Oxycontin than people who are coming off heroin. “These people are your neighbours,” he said. “They developed an opiate dependency. This is somewhat different than heroin users. There are not people sitting on the sidewalk waiting for their buds with a cigarette and a

Public Notice Circuit C25H Transmission Line Refurbishing Program Hydro One Networks Inc. (Hydro One) is planning to refurbish 170 km of existing 230 kilovolt (kV) transmission line (Circuit C25H) from Chats Falls Switching Station (SS) in the City of Ottawa, to Havelock Transformer Station (TS) in the Township of Havelock-Belmont-Methuen, in Eastern Ontario (see map).

coffee. They are your friends and children. Unfortunately, they have a deep opiate dependency.” CHC clinic coordinator Kate Johnston said it’s a chronic and relapsing dependency. This is the harsh reality of dependencies, including alcohol, drugs and cigarettes, said Dr. Charles Bonham-Carter, from Change Health Care Inc., which will be managing the clinic. “The success rate at treatment centres is three to five per cent,” he said. “In opiate substitution therapy (methadone maintenance therapy) people on the program will experience success as with any illness. The reality is the relapse rates are very high. They do well on treatment, if they stay on treatment long-term. It keeps them stable.” Bonham-Carter said the centre tries to change behaviour so people can change their lives in a significant way that reduces the chance of relapse. “It takes a long time to make a difference,” he admitted. “There is a part of the brain that is affected forever once there is a serious drug dependency. But it is a little bit plastic. It can be taught over a period of time, months to years. The brain needs to heal.” He said long-term methadone programs are more successful than any other. Staff manage, treat and counsel clients with all forms of addiction. “It is a slow process,” he noted, “There is always a potential of relapse.” One person said there is a methadone clinic in Brantford downtown where they have two full-time security guards.

“People are hanging about and there is drug paraphernalia found on the ground,” she said. ”These worries are realistic.” Bonham-Carter said such fears are all associated with dispensing clinics. The centre in Trenton would not be dispensing methadone, just meeting with clients, registering them with the program, he said. The dispensing would be done at a separate location in Trenton. He added there is a small dispensing clinic in Picton but there have been no complaints there. “We don’t want any complaints,” he added. “We have a reputation to maintain.” Bonham-Carter said the CHC “is not here to make your lives miserable. This is a benefit to the community. Give us a chance to prove it.” Marsha Stephen, executive director of CHC, noted the centre makes it quite clear what kind of behaviour is acceptable. Councillor Terry Cassidy said the city will look at the bylaw to make sure there are safeguards. He said he works with people on methadone, transporting six every week to Belleville. They are in and out of the clinic in less than

30 minutes and there is no lineup. “These people need better health care,” he said. “The treatment does not help their other health needs.” He said the idea is to get the best treatment for people in this community. He noted that council has not yet passed the bylaw to allow the service in. “Staff has to reflect on what people want,” Cassidy said. “Tell us your concerns. We are listening.” He noted this still has to come before the planning committee and then council. Piercy added that people are also welcome to come to board meetings and share their views. He noted that people did not originally want the CHC to be located downtown where it is now, but it is doing just fine. Johnston said people who are opiate dependent are not monsters. “Some of the most wonderful humans I know are on methadone,” she said. “The spectrum is enormous. It is so mired by stigma.” Johnston said the clinic would likely be open two nights a week, from 5 to 9 p.m. with a doctor and case Please see “Clinic” on page 19

Young birders flock to Brighton

The transmission structures and conductors along Circuit C25H have reached their end-of-life and this work is essential to ensure the safe and reliable supply of electricity to the surrounding area. The work will involve refurbishing support structures where required, as well as cleaning, removing rust, coating and replacing steel components as needed. This project falls within the screening process as described under Hydro One’s Class Environmental Assessment (EA) for Minor Transmission Facilities, in accordance with the provincial Environmental Assessment Act. The Class EA for Minor Transmission Facilities is a document developed by the former Ontario Hydro as a streamlined process to ensure that minor transmission projects that have a predictable range of effects are planned and carried out in an environmentally acceptable manner. All work will be carried out within the existing transmission corridor and access to work areas will be made through existing roads/trails or along the transmission line corridor. This work is scheduled to begin in April 2014 and will be compled by Fall 2015. Upon completion, there will be no change in the appearance of this transmission line.

News – Brighton – It shouldn’t come as a surprise, after one of the worst winters in recent history, that motor vehicle collisions in Northumberland County more than doubled the first two months in 2014 compared to the same period a year earlier. “We’ve seen a lot of weather-related collisions,” Northumberland OPP Detachment Commander Inspector Doug Borton told members of the Brighton Police Services Board. The total at the end of February stood at 335, with one fatality, the result of a whiteout on County Road 30 south of Campbellford; last year, only 148 collisions were recorded, and no one was killed. The number of people injured was also up considerably, going from 28 in two months to 96 in 2014. Borton said collision numbers were up across the county and not just along Highway 401, which has attracted the most attention because of the many multiple-vehicle collisions that occurred along that stretch locally causing numerous road closures.

Brian Jardine, director of planning for the city, said there are two layers to the process, involving the Official Plan and a zoning amendment. The review has to do with the land use only and it cannot enforce what time the clinic will be open. He said there will be a formal notification to nearby property owners when this will be discussed at the planning meeting, with public input on the agenda. Facilitator Lorri Taylor said the meeting was the first held about the methadone clinic which will now be passed on to the city to decide. TRAILER HITCH

Collisions way up, weather not the sole reason dropped from three to one The MTO used “to be the leaders in providing the best level quality of service out there and obviously they’ve fallen short,” Walas said. Borton said the OPP is looking to work with the ministry to do more education on winter driving, by making pamphlets available at service centres at each end of the county on the 401. Also being considered is to hold discussions with trucking companies whose vehicles have been involved in collisions, he said.

News – Hastings – The Hastings Disaster Trust Fund continues to grow. The two-year-old fund received an infusion of $1,670 last week as the

proceeds from the Hastings Firefighter’s Association annual toonie draw were given over to the fund. The Hastings trust fund follows in the footsteps of one established years ago by the

Campbellford-Seymour Fire Department and will now be replicated by the Trent Hills Fire Department’s Warkworth Fire Station which is holding a golf tourney June 14 to raise seed money for a similar fund. The Hastings draw is held every year at Todd’s Valu Mart. “It just shows what I’m trying to do as the leader that we are Trent Hills and that we’re providing protection for the entire population of Trent Hills,” Trent Hills Fire Chief Tim Blake told the Independent. “These things are big wins for everyone.” The fundraisers at the three stations -- Campbellford-Seymour has held a car wash and barbecue May 24 for years -are very much family affairs, Blake said, and that speaks to the department’s “familyorientated structure. “It just shows the Trent Hills Fire Department where

we’re going to have the wives (and families) involved in the toonie draw and car wash and golf tourney.” The fund, overseen by a volunteer board of trustees, is a “cushion” that allows the Trent Hills Fire Department to provide immediate assistance to people affected by a disastrous situation. “If something happens, as the chief I can say we can help you for a couple of days (and) take that burden off you,” said Blake. “It’s a very trying time in your life when something devastating happens. “We can assist families for a couple of days until other agencies start to help out.” In Trent Hills last year disaster trust funds were used four times in Seymour ward, Blake said. The Hastings fund, which has not been tapped into yet, now has $3,000 in its account and is “building up. “It’s one of those things

you hope you never have to use,” Blake said. The fundraisers are fun for everyone involved and give local residents a chance to contribute to the Trent Hills Fire Department’s three stations, he added. “It builds that camaraderie and family-like atmosphere I want to portray in the Trent Hills Fire Department; to have the wives involved in a lot of this stuff brings the firefighters together and gives

that real bond of friendship.” Having disaster funds in place allows firefighters to concentrate on their job at an emergency scene. “They know the family is going to be looked after for a little bit.” Blake said there is talk of expanding the toonie draw next year. Anyone interested in participating in the Warkworth Fire Station’s gold tourney June 14 can contact Scott Newman at the fire hall or Blake.

The Bluegrass Mountaineers will warm up Havelock By Bill Freeman

Entertainment – Havelock – There will be more world-class bluegrass music in Havelock April 11 when The Bluegrass Mountaineers hit the stage at the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 389. The acclaimed ensemble’s music has been described as “old-time, claw hammering, classic country yodelling (with) twin fiddles” and that’s just a small part of the seven member ensemble that now spans four generations with the addition of eight-year-old mandolin wunderkind Chris Wilcox. The Akron, Ohio-based group will be in Havelock as part of the always popular Northern Bluegrass Committee’s Ontario tour which has been making regular winter stops in Havelock for several years. Jim Hayward and Willow Ridge will open the show at 7:30 p.m. The Bluegrass Mountaineers are truly a family entity spanning the generations and have never lost sight of the classic bluegrass rhythms. The band is a festival favourite across the continent and they were even the hosts of the Bluegrass Cruise on the 3,690 passenger Carnival Breeze that sailed from Miami to Cozumel, George Town, Ocho Rios and Grand Cayman. They shared the stage with seven different bands including two that have played locally as part of the NBC tour: Remington Ryde and Nothin’ Fancy. Nothin’ Fancy warmed up the Legion hall in February. The Bluegrass Mountaineers have

recorded at least nine albums and have appeared on the Grand Ole Opry stage and at Nashville’s Fan Fair as well at Ernest Tubbs’ Midnight Jamboree, the Chicago Folk Festival and Ralph Stanley’s Bluegrass Festival. They are regular radio guests on the Bluegrass Café and the Bluegrass Gospel Hour. BGM is gearing up for a busy summer concert time with appearances at several festivals including the Nothin’ Fancy Bluegrass festival in Buena Vista, Virginia, the Southern Cove Bluegrass Festival in Pennsylvania and the Blistered Fingers Family Bluegrass Festival in Maine. Tickets for the Havelock show are $20 in advance and $22 at the door. They are available at Branch 389 or by calling 705-803-3003 or 289-755-4512.

Young, 48, and Windsorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stories about little people taking on enormous running challenges are heartfelt and inspiring as is the sub-story about last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tragic Boston Marathon. For Young, becoming a successful triathlete meant becoming a runner and debunking a longheld belief by medical professionals that little people shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t run; with that done the next objective was the gruelling 26.4 miles of marathon fulfillment and its pinnacle in Boston. But his 2013 attempt with his friend Juli to become the first dwarves to complete the marathon were thwarted by a deadly terrorist bombing near the finish line, which happened as he reached mile 25. Young has now completed over 30 triathlons including New York City and Peterborough and finished his first half-marathon four years ago; in 2011 he crossed the finish line of his first marathon.

Ontario hockey and played baseball. He volunteered in the community. People here remember him. “He is one of those people who everyone knew. He could talk with eight-year-olds or 80year-olds. He loved people and gave every person he talked to his full attention.” The weekend he died, at 19 years of age, he had played five curling games as well as minor hockey and “still had time to challenge a friend and myself to a game of racquetball,” Philp said. It was their father, Paul Philp, who started the windup bonspiel at the club after it opened. “My dad and brother were both competitive when they wanted to be but when it came time to curl they had a good time and we wanted to continue that tradition for the members here,” she said. Philp reminisced about curling as a family at the club in Campbellford when she was a teenager.

“We encourage kids to curl. We’ve had kids under 10 curling with their family and that is starting to come back,” she commented. Her son Cole curls in the threeday windup bonspiel, “in memory of his uncle.” Out-of-town curlers joined local curlers on the ice here, coming from Belleville, Hastings, Havelock and Keene. “We try to keep it fun and a plaque goes to the winning rink to commemorate who has won it,” Philp said. “It’s never really about the winning . . . a team could end up with points and not even win a game. “It’s all about the fun and in memory of David.” Curling comes to an end here on April 10 with the competitive league curling bonspiel wrapping up the season.

The winning rink at the David Philp Memorial Windup Bonspiel held in Campbellford last weekend includes: Colleen Philp (David’s sister); Dave and Sheri-Lynn Collyer of Belleville; Jeff Wilson (SheriLynn’s brother, both originally from Campbellford); and Averi MacMillan.

Sports – Campbellford – The 24th David Philp Memorial Windup Bonspiel was held last weekend as 96 curlers on 24 teams vied for the championship trophy at the curling club in Campbellford. The winning team was skipped by Dave Collyer, with SheriLynn Collyer, as vice, both of Belleville, Jeff Wilson, second, (Collyer’s brother, originally from Campbellford), and Collyer’s daughters, Averi MacMillan and Kayla MacMillan. “Averi curled Friday and Saturday and Kayla curled Sunday and shared the position of lead so that’s why both their names are on the trophy,” explained Colleen Philp. “Jeff has been living in Edmonton for two years but comes home for two weeks for the David Philp Memorial Windup,” she added. The bonspiel is in memory of her brother. He “was very well known here,” she said. “He played All-

Junior ice dance champs enjoy Norwood visit By Bill Freeman

Sports - Asphodel-Norwood â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Mackenzie Bent and Garrett MacKeen had a blast in Norwood Sunday afternoon. The Canadian Junior Ice Dance champions, fresh from another world championship test in SoďŹ a, Bulgaria, stepped out of the pressurecooker atmosphere of international competition and had a little fun during the Norwood District Figure Skating Clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Big Dreams carnival Sunday afternoon in front of a large crowd at the Asphodel-Norwood Community Centre. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With all the stress and all the pressure of competing you kind of get out of the joy of skating and we really do enjoy skating,â&#x20AC;? Mackenzie, 16, told the Independent as they prepared to wow the crowd with two dynamic showcase skates. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We love skating at carnivals,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We just play around a little bit; you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to be so strict with the rules and you can have a lot of fun.â&#x20AC;? The ďŹ rst routine was their free dance competition program with a few show tunes thrown in to â&#x20AC;&#x153;change it upâ&#x20AC;? a little bit. They followed up with a showcase dance to Marilyn and Joe. Both were dazzling and left no doubt why the Scarborough Ice Dance Elite Club duo won the national championship and ďŹ nished ďŹ fth at the worlds last year and took a gold medal at the ISU junior Grand Prix in Riga, Latvia. Mackenzie and Garrett, 19, have been skating together for nine years and their lofty goal has always been a national title and when they stood on the medal podium it was in every sense a Big Dream accomplished. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To me it was ďŹ nally relief,â&#x20AC;? said Garrett. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So much work goes into

training and every day skating it was kind of nice to recognized for everything we put into it,â&#x20AC;? Mackenzie added. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re ready to graduate to the even loftier reaches of senior skating and are both conďŹ dent and excited about the prospects ahead. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think it will be that big a jump to senior,â&#x20AC;? said Mackenzie. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve sort of been aiming for senior during all three years we competed at junior so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always been in the back of our minds. I think weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always been training to compete at that level.â&#x20AC;? Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve trained with some of Team Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best senior skaters and soaked up all they could. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a neat experience,â&#x20AC;? Mackenzie said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You watch them train and you take things out of the effort they put in and how they handle every situation.â&#x20AC;? The couple has made friends on the international circuit and can balance the hard-nosed business of competition with off-ice camaraderie. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re really amazing people. While weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re at the rink competing weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all in the zone but we can step out of it and really enjoy each otherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s company. There are so many wonderful teams out there and a lot of talent and we recognize that.â&#x20AC;? Both started out as solo skaters but soon found their niche in dance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I like being on the ice with another person, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more fun to train and to compete was a little less nerve-racking,â&#x20AC;? Mackenzie said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I did free but didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t last long,â&#x20AC;? Garrett said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I basically stayed until one of my friends quit then I started with Mackenzie. It makes skating more enjoyable.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The ice is kind of in your heart,â&#x20AC;? Mackenzie said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a challenging sport.â&#x20AC;?

Young speakers impressed all

By Judy Backus

News - Marmora - The nine branches of the Royal Canadian Legion which comprise Zone F3, include those in Marmora, Madoc, Tweed, Deseronto, Picton, Wellington, Consecon, Bel-

leville and Stirling. Over the past weeks, each has held a public speaking contest, and on March 30, Branch 237 Marmora hosted the Zone competition which featured the top speakers from each of the branch competitions.

A total of 18 contestants representing the winners in three categories: grades one to three, four to six, and seven to nine, arrived at the local Legion to again deliver their speeches. Although students from grades ten through 12 were

also included in the contest, none opted to participate. First, second and third place prizes of $30, $25 and $20 were awarded in each division, with the ďŹ rst place winners facing the challenge of speaking at the District competition, which represents Please see â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bothâ&#x20AC;? on page B3

A festival celebrating incredible edibles being planned

By John Campbell

Entertainment – Campbellford – The Incredible Edibles Festival will make its debut in downtown Campbellford this summer and getting admission will be a snap. “If you eat, you’re in” is the catchphrase of the inaugural event that will be held July 12 on a section of Saskatoon Avenue that will be closed to traffic between Front and River streets. That’s where organizers hope as many as 50 vendors will set up to sell different kinds of foods obtained and/ or made locally. Among those already committed to take part

are Century Game Park near Warkworth, where owner Rod Potter raises bison and elk, and Haute Goat, outside Campbellford, whose owners, Debbie Nightingale and Shan Jaffe, make goat cheese chocolates. There will also be workshops and demonstrations, and there’s even a goat der4by and fashion show being planned. Throughout the day, Aron Theatre, which is presenting the festival, will be running short videos that highlight fun food ideas. Like the festival, there will be no charge for admission. “It’s all about the local farms

and food,” and how to utilize what they have to offer, such as cooking with maple syrup, says Jackie Igleheart, a member of the organizing committee made up of Aron volunteers. Increasing public awareness of what’s available in the area will add to the “sustainability of our local farms,” and that’s important, says Sandy Chapman, another volunteer. “We’ve got a lovely community here, we want to highlight it,” says Joan Sheppard, who’s also on the committee. Local treasures include Empire Cheese, which has won many awards. “People drive great

distances for a bag of curds.” Downtown merchants stand to gain from increased business generated by an influx of visitors drawn to Campbellford for the festival; for the Aron it’s an opportunity to raise its profile as “a cultural hub of the community,” Sheppard says. “We’re very lucky” to have a theatre with state-of-the-art technology that shows current movies, Igleheart says.

The mission of the festival committee is not only to raise awareness of the Campbellford/Trent Hills area but also the relationship that exists between local food vendors, suppliers, farmers, merchants and consumers. Sheppard says the festival is getting a good response from the people and groups she’s talked to in the farming and business communities.

“Everybody is excited, I haven’t had a naysayer yet,” she said. The committee has already set up a website, to post information about the event and to accept vendor registrations. It’s also looking for sponsors and volunteers to help make the day a success. Anyone interested is invited to call Sheppard at 705-6534747.

Invisible Ribbon Gala to celebrate 10th anniversary News – Trenton — On Saturday, May 3, the Trenton Military Family Resource Centre (MFRC) will host the 10th annual Invisible Ribbon Gala, an event that raises awareness about those who wear the “invisible uniform”: the families who support our troops. The event brings the community and military together to raise funds for the MFRC and to recognize the challenges faced by military families. “Military families live with stresses that the average Canadian family never experiences, certainly not at the rate or intensity you find within the military environment,” said Tamara Kleinschmidt, interim executive director of the Trenton MFRC. “Though military families are strong and resilient, having supports in place when families need them is

essential to maintaining that strength and resilience.” Kleinschmidt pointed out the country depends on the Armed Forces to be responsive to any number of extraordinary circumstances around the globe. “The Trenton MFRC, a nonprofit organization, identifies the needs of the military community at 8 Wing Trenton and creates an environment where families can minimize the stresses associated with the military environment and flourish,” Kleinschmidt said. “Our families truly are the strength behind the uniform.” One hundred percent of proceeds will go to the MFRC, support Kleinschmidt said is vital to the help that the resource centre provides to families. Funds raised support critical programs the MFRC provides. They include emergency and

respite care for families, language classes, counselling, and support groups that foster positive mental health and strong resilient families. The Invisible Ribbon Gala will be an elegant evening featuring a gourmet dinner paired with local wines, a silent and live auction, and entertainment featuring the 8 Wing Band. It will be held at the National Air Force Museum of Canada. All members of the community and military are welcome to attend. Tickets are $100 and can be purchased by phone, online, or at the MFRC, 50 Rivers Drive East. For more information about the event, or to learn how you can get involved, visit www. or call the Trenton MFRC at 613-9653575.

Three men fined for July deer hunt News - Three Ontario men have pleaded guilty and been fined a total of $5,000 for unlawfully hunting white-tailed deer. Andrew McCullough of Tamworth was fined $1,000 for hunting white-tailed deer during the closed season; $1,000 for having a loaded firearm and discharging it from on top of a vehicle; and $1,000 for making false and misleading statements to a conservation officer during an investigation. He also received a three-year hunting

suspension. Arthur McCullough of Parham was fined $1,000 for hunting white-tailed deer during the closed season and received a three-year hunting suspension. Neil McCullough of Parham was fined $1,000 for possessing illegally killed white-tailed deer and received a one-year hunting suspension. The court heard that on two separate occasions in July 2013, during the closed season, the three men shot one female

and one male white-tailed deer. Andrew McCullough shot both deer while Arthur McCullough assisted with the buck and Neil McCullough assisted with the doe. Andrew McCullough fired the initial shots at the buck from the roof of a truck where he was attempting to get a better vantage point for a clear shot. Justice of the Peace Jack Chiang heard the case in the Ontario Court of Justice, Kingston, on March 25, 2014.

Local musician donates proceeds for Daffodil Month By Steve Jessel

News - April is Daffodil Month for the Canadian Cancer Society, and in Belleville one long-time musician is doing his best to make a difference with the sales of his latest CD. Eugene Deline has been making music for over 35 years, but for the month of April he’s decided to do something a little different. Deline is donating 100 per cent of proceeds from his latest album Luck and Skill to the Canadian Cancer Society throughout the month, and he’s Belleville musician Eugene Deline is donating all royalties from the sale of doing his best to get his message out his CD Luck and Skill to the Canadian Cancer Society for the month of April. there.

significant airtime in Campbellford, Tyendinega and on CJBQ, and Deline said he’s considering taking it to radio stations outside the region as well to help raise funds. “It’s a diverse package - there’s no filler on there,” Deline said of the album, a 10-track fusion of rock, contemporary and blues music. Deline and producer Eric Baragar spent 27 months to record the album, which was finished over the summer. Baragar said he compares Deline’s singing to Leonard Cohen on one end of the spectrum, and “Mick Jagger on the other end.” “A lot of it is imagination, although I’m sure that some of it

comes from experience,” Deline said, when asked where he draws his inspiration to write music. Deline estimates he’s written over 3,000 songs since 1976. “It stems from writing,” he added, explaining the creative side of writing and creating music was what he enjoyed the most. “Playing and singing are secondary.” Deline said he’s had a number of people in his extended family who have either contracted cancer and passed away, or are currently battling the disease. His sister died of leukemia in 2005 while his wife’s son died years prior at the age of 36. He said his sister-in-law is also cur-

rently fighting cancer, and that they were the reason he wanted to donate to the Canadian Cancer Society. “Who hasn’t had someone pass away from cancer,” he said. “Either they’re related to somebody or they know somebody...” Luck and Skill is available at Quinte Mall at Sam the Record Man and at Harmony Music Plus in Belleville and costs $10. Deline will also being playing a live set during Night Kitchen Too at the Pinnacle Playhouse on April 26. Deline also asks for people to call into local radio stations to request songs from the album if they enjoy his music.

Both judges and audience roused by young speakers illustrations as to how people can drive you crazy, the worldwide issue of cyber bullying, building up courage to attempt the Disney Summit Plummet Challenge and the fear of Friday the Thirteenth. One contestant recited the story of the Cremation of Sam McGee, another featured the tourist destination of Puerto Rico, and another told of Gandhi, “the man who changed the world forever.” There were talks about conquering stage fright, self-image and the difficulties encountered when one is vertically challenged. Another spoke with feeling about the 16-yearold education activist, Malala Yousafzai from Pakistan. Once all the speakers had completed their presentations, it was time for the two scrutineers to tally the judg-

es’ scores and determine the winners. The winner in the primary division was Carter Leveque of Belleville, who spoke about overcoming his fear and tackling the Disney Summit Plummet. The junior division was won by Belleville resident, Jeanette Huang, who talked about the very appropriate topic of stage fright. First place in the Intermediate division was won by Madelyn Sheppard also from Belleville, who spoke with feeling about the growing crisis involving cyber bullying.

53 branches, being held in Deseronto on April 5. Lynn Deering, Zone F3 Youth Education Chairman, welcomed a crowd of speakers, their supporters and Legion personnel, saying that all the speakers should be proud of themselves for having reached that level of competition. She commented, “It says a lot for the youth of today and it says a lot for the parents who have taken the time to be here, to support you.” She went on to say that the Royal Canadian Legion spends thousands of dollars annually on their youth education programs, with the public speaking competition being a small portion of that. Branch President Marie Gordon extended best wishes to the competitors and charged all to “have a fun day!” She added, saying to the young speakers, “Don’t get yourselves all tied up in knots. If you forget something, just think we’ve all forgotten something at some time in our lives. Just go ahead!” Judges Bonnie Danes, Wayne Doyle and Dianne Cole, were charged with the difficult task of marking the speeches, basing their decisions on appearance, manner, topic choice, material, language and literary form.

A different brand of country music By Steve Jessel

Entertainment - Belleville Juno award-winning country artist Corb Lund is coming to the Empire Theatre on April 10 and after a stint in Europe Lund said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s itching to kick off his 2014 Spring Thaw Tour back on home soil. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been overseas for a couple months and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m raring to go,â&#x20AC;? Lund said. An eclectic and prolific songwriter, Lundâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s country and rural roots shine through in his music and lyrics, and over a long and successful career heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been recognized with a laundry list of awards, including being named the Canadian Country Music Associationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Roots Artist of the Year for seven consecutive years. A self-professed history buff, Lund sings about what he knows - bovines, bibles, vintage mo-

torcycles and everything in between. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s part of what makes him popular he thinks, and he says heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a different breed than the country music thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s played on the radio these days. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not really commercially formulated,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kind of on the fringes of country, almost underground country. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s excellent beer-drinking music.â&#x20AC;? Lundâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family are long-time cattle ranchers from Alberta, and he said he draws inspiration for his music from his family and their history. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of the country on the radio isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really that rural anymore, and I think thats part of our appeal,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think we also appeal to the urban audience because our sound is a little more dirty and edgy than whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on the radio too.â&#x20AC;? Corbâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s latest album Cabin

Fever was released in 2012, and marked his seventh release, and second in the United States. Unsurprisingly, Lund said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seen significant success in rural American markets including Texas and Oklahoma, and that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always a bit of culture shock to come from playing shows in farm country to playing in front of a more urban crowd like in British Columbia where heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also popular. And at the end of the day, the live shows are what he says he lives for. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love the energy exchange,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Making records is okay, but I really love the live shows. Playing live is really a magical space you get to, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unlike anything else in life.â&#x20AC;? Tickets for Lundâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s show in Belleville can be found on the Empire Theatre website at www.theempiretheJuno award winning country artist Corb Lund is playing Bellevilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Empire Theatre on April 10.

That helps get him known and respected in the community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It helps to donate,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t over-donate.â&#x20AC;? He also goes to many art shows. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Making your name as an artist is not an easy thing,â&#x20AC;? he admits. He urged the other artists to do what excites them in art. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you do it well, someone will like it,â&#x20AC;? he said. Comeau will be at the Quinte West Home Show in April, demonstrating his love of art. Do you have an opinion youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to share? Write the editor

As well as selling his work out of his gallery, he also does custom framing. He has designed his own website which sells his work all around the world. Comeau has also started a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Group of 12â&#x20AC;? for Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top realists. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I do a lot of commissions,â&#x20AC;? he added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All kinds of subjects. As long as I can see it, I can draw it.â&#x20AC;? Right now, he is working on a large dragon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a real fantasy one,â&#x20AC;? he smiles. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It will take me about four months to do.â&#x20AC;? He says the last 13 years have been a rough road finan-


the competition and $8,000 when I won it.â&#x20AC;? Comeau admits he was pretty impressed when he got the call in November. The design was due in January. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to get any kind of publicity,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This definitely helped.â&#x20AC;? The coin created a lot of phone calls for more contracts. Comeau has had Timberwolf Gallery in downtown Trenton for 13 years after he retired from the military after 21 years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was always a dream of mine since a child to do this full time,â&#x20AC;? he said.


News - Quinte West â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Local artist Doug Comeau was guest speaker at the annual general meeting of Arts Quinte West on March 27, talking about his commissioned $20 silver coin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The coin was released on February 4,â&#x20AC;? he told the group of artists and musicians at the Knights of Columbus hall. He said the coin sells for $350 each and he bought 65 of them. The Royal Canadian Mint commissioned him to do the bison design on the coin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They were looking for a realist with fine detail,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They paid me $1,000 to enter

Geneva, Switzerland’s landmark: The Jet D’eau Lifestyles - Geneva, Switzerland’s Jet d’Eau (water jet) is visible throughout the city. It’s one of the world’s largest water fountains and erupts from the nozzle at a speed of 200 km. per hour, spewing out about 500 litres of water per second to an altitude of approximately 140 metres.  It’s located where Lake Geneva empties into the Rhone River, and it’s quite a remarkable sight! Visitors can get their very own up close and personal viewing via a stone jetty on the left bank of the lake but if there’s a sudden wind change, these visitors may also get unexpectedly drenched.   Therefore, the fountain is shut off when it’s particularly windy or cold.  It’s also shut off overnight.  It does, however, operate in the evenings, too, between spring and autumn and is illuminated by several coloured lights (somewhat like our own Niagara Falls).  On a sunny day, the water jet is often accompanied by an exquisite rainbow. The original purpose of the Jet d’Eau was to produce electricity for Geneva’s watchmakers, and the first installation took place in 1886. It soon became apparent that this was also a very popular tourist attraction, so it was moved a little further upstream, to its present site in 1891, where the latest upgraded version was erected in a partially submerged pumping station in 1951. And now that I’ve mentioned watchmakers in the previous paragraph, it’s probably not a surprise to you that Geneva is also known as “the birthplace of watchmaking”.  There are a lot of watches made here and a plethora of watchmakers’ shops.  I was told there are about 30 million watches exported yearly and that Rolex alone employs more than 4,000 workers.   I even discovered that my hotel, the Hotel Cornavin, had the largest mechanical clock in the world right in its lobby and it’s listed in the Guinness Book of World Records.  I also learned that Geneva Tourism (www. even puts out a “Geneva Watch Tour” brochure, and I covered much of this pedestrian route on my trek with my English-speaking guide, Sandrina Palomera. Sandrina and I strolled to Geneva’s famous Flower Clock, with its 6500 flowers in the dial and the world’s longest seconds-hand.  We also passed by the Cite de Temps (an iconic site for Swatch fans), the Piaget Time Gallery with its historical timepieces, the Patek Philippe Museum depicting 500 years of watchmaking history, and the Museum of Clocks & Mechanical Instruments with its collection of antique clocks and watches.  In addition to these timely sites, we also visited many of Geneva’s other

major attractions, including Old Town, perched on a hillside, with its maze of cobblestone streets, Maison Tavel, the oldest house in the city,   Town Hall, where the League of Nations and Red Cross were founded, and St. Peter’s Cathedral, built in the 12th century on top of archaeological sites that date back to the first century and transformed from a Roman Catholic church to a Protestant place of worship in the 16th century.  We also visited the Promenade de la Treille with its long wooden bench and spectacular overview of the city framed by old chestnut trees,   Reformation Wall with its large statues of the major participants in the Protestant Reformation including John Calvin and John Knox,   the tomb of the Duke of Brunswick, who bequeathed his fortune to this city in exchange for this impressive mausoleum that was built in 1879 in neo-gothic style, and the statue of Sisi, the Empress of Austria and the Queen of Hungary who was murdered while visiting in Geneva. After my walking tour, I still wanted to do some more exploring, so I used my transportation pass from the hotel to take a ferry across the lake. Later, I used this same pass to hop on a bus to check out Palais des Nations, now the European headquarters of the United Nations, the famous giant ‘Broken Chair’ monument erected by Handicap International, and the International Museum of the Red Cross

Geneva’s Jet d’Eau is shut off overnight - and in high winds.

and Red Crescent which showcases the activities of this humanitarian movement. Geneva is a very cosmopolitan destination, with a rich cultural life. There are lots of high-end shops, wonderful parks, and a great variety of restaurant choices.  It’s located in southwest Switzerland near the French border on beautiful Lake Geneva at the foot of the

Jura Mountains and it’s very close to the Alps. The setting is spectacular, but it’s that water jet, in particular, that immediately reminds me of my whereabouts and it’s that Jet d’Eau that’s most often featured in the promotional photos of this enticing destination.

Connect with Ontarians – extend your business reach! EMC Section B - Thursday, April 3, 2014



The Good Earth: Who ya gonna call? By Dan Clost

Lifestyles - Yes, spring is coming. I know because you are in the store chatting up summer projects. One of the underlying concerns you ask us, Gentle Reader, is, “Can you recommend a company?” How do you know if you’ve selected the right company to do your work? A very simple answer would be to select only companies that are members of Landscape Ontario. That is simplistic to the extreme. There are many companies and individuals who have not joined this horticultural trades association that create exceptional landscapes. I do hope they would. More about this later. Another answer would be to go to a local garden centre and ask whom they would recommend. Many will have business cards on hand. This will not guarantee a good fit but it will get you off to a good start. However, there are few facts you should know about these recommendations. Our company also

has a board with many cards on it. We don’t recommend a single one of them; we can’t. Here’s why. The first of the facts is that all of those businesses are our customers, as is the case at other stores. We can’t offer ABC Landscaping at the expense of DEF Landscaping unless we want DEF to go elsewhere. As well, we can’t just suggest to the customers that ABC is the company they need. Perhaps ABC is one of the best businesses around for gardening and you want a gazebo. An important clarification: We don’t not recommend a company but if one of our trade businesses begin to receive complaints, we’ll investigate. Maybe a bad customer? If the concerns are valid then we will pull the card. Here’s what we do and this is what most other outlets will do as well. They will listen to what the customers are looking for and select two or three companies for contacting. We’re usually

spot-on in matching the ability of the company and the need of the customer. It’s part of our business survival skills. So now Gentle Reader, aka Gentle Customer, you need to call those companies. You have to start somewhere. In today’s social media environment, checking out a potential company is simple; check out their website. Two things will be immediately apparent. Do you like the layout, organization, and language on that page? Look at their portfolio. Here you’re not looking at the quality of the work, that should be a given. What you’re looking for is a tone, a feel with which you can relate. This theme will bring itself to the fore, natural, flowing or formal, wood and stone or chrome and stone, etc. For sure, there will be an example of a special project that doesn’t fall into their normal designs and it will be there to show you their range. Now, you’re ready to make the phone call and set up an appointment. You may

meet with the owner or a designer who will be working with you. During the conversation, you will be asked many questions that might not seem connected to building a flowerbed and patio. How much time do you want to spend gardening? What will be the main use of this space? Of course, the obvious one of budget will occur sometime during that first visit. By the way, the better prepared you are, the better the results of the meeting. You too, are responsible for asking questions about the company. What certifications do they hold, what organisations do they belong to, do they use subcontractors who are certified etc.? If everybody is pleased, the designer will go away and get to work. Soon, they will be back with a plan that fits your budget and, hopefully, fits your concept. Now compare this plan to the one(s) the other companies presented you. You did get more than one quote, right? The

value of the quotes should be fairly close. Differences might be in selection of materials or the size of the plants. Sometimes you might see a low-ball quote, one that just doesn’t compare. Be very careful and ask yourself, “What did they miss?” Maybe they actually can do a superb job for that price, but be skeptical. You’ve selected the company and are about to sign the contract. Take some time to read it through. Visit the Landscape Ontario Horticultural Association’s webpage and spend some time there. You will see there are two streams, one for homeowner, one for businesses. Go to the business side fist. You will see everything that is happening in the trade, as well the voluntary code of ethics. You will get a good understanding of the trade. Now, you’re ready to pick your company. You’ll be ready to get to it as soon as spring does arrive.

Who would have guessed? This skeptical reporter gets a psychic reading By Steve Jessel

Entertainment – Belleville – I’ve never been to a psychic expo before. I’ve never had a “reading” done, I’ve never had my fortune told, and while my parents had a deck of tarot cards I used to play with as a kid, I think I was more interested in the colourful illustrations than anything else. With this in mind, I headed to the annual Belleville psychic expo over the weekend to see what the buzz was about, and the first thing I noticed was just how busy the event was. The organizer, Linda Fulcher, had told me the event can get quite hectic, but on Saturday afternoon the venue was jam-packed with people browsing items and waiting their turn for a reading. And readings certainly seemed to be the main attraction – in every corner of the room, pairings hunkered over their tables, totally oblivious to the world around them.

If you haven’t guessed by now, I’m what people at the expo would likely refer to as a “skeptic.” Growing up, my single mother was definitely a spiritual person, but she never forced her beliefs on my brother or myself. Instead, she let us make up our own minds about what was “real” and what wasn’t, and I had always tended towards concrete facts and evidence and away from spirituality and religion. When I first previewed the event a couple weeks ago, Linda had followed up afterward, offered to arrange a reading for me during the event. Initially I wasn’t sure I would take her up on the offer, but then I began to wonder - we’ve all had friends who have been to a psychic and absolutely swear by the results, and even as “skeptical” as I am, Linda had definitely piqued my curiosity. Vowing to keep an open mind about the subject, I decided to take her up on the offer, and

on Sunday I had a very basic reading done. My psychic was a middle-aged man going by the name Paul Pacific, touting a business card that proclaimed him as “Canada’s Barefoot Prophet.” Charismatic and friendly, (and barefoot as expected) Paul very quickly set the ground rules for our session together by asking one quick question. “Are you a skeptical journalist?” he asked me. “I don’t think you become a journalist without having a healthy amount of skepticism,” I replied. The cynic in me would say that simple question likely set the tone for the reading - knowing that I’m a newspaper reporter who is also skeptical of psychics, it would maybe make sense for Paul to tone down his predictions

Route IJ001 Springbrook (approximately 240 papers) including various bulk drops Reference # IJ001 3.

Route FF009- R.R 5 Belleville (approximately 569 papers) and Route FF012 (approximately 12 papers) including various bulk drops Reference # FF009

and perhaps maintain a more general tone. Regardless, Paul quickly got down to work, using a technique known as numerology to draw a connection between my birth date and my personal characteristics. Paul spent the next five minutes extolling my various virtues based on those numbers, and while I personally strive to be many of the things he described, even on my best days I’m not the saint he described. Some of his observations were uncanny in their accuracy - how I value my close friends, my introverted nature and my tendency to feel empathy for others in particular, but again the cynic in me rears its ugly head. How much can he tell about me based

on my reactions to his questions? Does he maybe start with a general question and then build a “character profile” for me based on my answers and subtle reactions? That’s my guess anyway. In conclusion, I came away impressed, but also mildly disappointed. I can definitely see the attraction of having a reading done, but this one experience was never going to change my mind. I didn’t go in expecting a lifetime of cynicism to be washed away with a simple five-minute session, but there’s certainly a small part of me that yearned for something bigger than the nuts and bolts of everyday life. Unfortunately, that something probably has nothing to do with adding up the numbers of my birthday.

that could have a lasting impact on the young people she’ll meet this month to talk about the Our Canada Project. OCP is an initiative of Learning for a Sustainable Future designed to help youth put into action their vision for a better Canada. As OCP ambassador for Eastern Ontario Nestoruk will meet with at least 12 different groups – schools, sports teams and youth service organizations, for example – to encourage their participation in a nation-wide effort to build a sustainable future. Her presentation includes brainstorming to come up with a project “they could create in the community” which they can then share online “so other people can see and be inspired.” Project ideas include community gardens, bike share programs, environmental education

programs, waste and water festivals, recycling clubs, food security symposiums, sustainable energy initiatives, and other sustainability campaigns. “I”ve always had a passion for sustainability,” says Nestoruk, a graduate of Campbellford District High School, who helped launch the school’s environmental group. She’s a huge advocate “of going green on a small scale” because changes at the individual level “can make a difference.” A fourth-year student studying environmental governance at the University of Guelph, Nestoruk, 21, wants “to get involved with environmental awareness campaigns” after she graduates. If your school or community group is interested in having her make a presentation or wants more information email Tanya.nestoruk@live. ca or call 705-653-0687.

Hoag says his â&#x20AC;&#x153;keenest interest within art lies at the intersection of representational and abstract imagery. This is where the recognizable and banal forms of every day life can be innovatively recombined

into freshly created forms. I especially enjoy the overlap between the natural and built environments, which is what I try to get at in my photographs and paintings.â&#x20AC;?

Entertainment - Campbellford - Gary Hoag loves radio and has since he was 10 years old. The CKOL announcer is also an artist, and is currently exhibiting four of his works as part of Pop-Up Art in Warkworth, at 27 Main St. Hoag recently celebrated his first anniversary as the host of the Red Rocket Radio Show on CKOL. The show is an eclectic mix of jazz, classic rock, R & B and soul (among other genres). A photographer since the late 1970s, he started painting in the early 2000s. His favourite subject matter, he says, is â&#x20AC;&#x153;the artistic collision between the natural and the built environments,â&#x20AC;? which he fashions into abstract imagery in awardwinning photographs. Hoag then chooses certain of his photographs to do large-scale blowups, mostly on paper. His materials include everything from acrylics, house paint, to ground up chalk, as well as liberal amounts of metal leaf.  The radio host and artist has exhibited his photographs numerous times in Toronto, and recently as part of the Spirit of the Hills exhibit at the Warkworth Maple Syrup  Festival last month. He says he would enjoy an exhibit of his paintings and photographs together, which he hopes to achieve in future. When asked to describe his art process, Hoag replies: â&#x20AC;&#x153;The natural and built environments are replete with the basic elements of graphic design and art. Light, line, colour and form simply abound, wherever we may look. Unfortunately, not many people actually see the visual richness surrounding us

Municipality hands out special award for group who saved badly wounded hunter By John Campbell

News – Hastings – Andrew Conte wouldn’t be alive today if it wasn’t for the quick thinking of his hunting buddies. The 43-year-old Trent Hills resident inadvertently shot himself in the chest last November while out hunting and would have bled to death had his friends not got him medical help as swiftly as they did, despite being deep in the woods north of Madoc. An eyewitness account of how they managed the feat was the highlight of the evening at the fifth annual Trent Hills Civic Awards Ceremony held last Friday. Conte’s rescuers were honoured with a special award presented by the municipality. The community is “incredibly proud of what you did,” CAO Mike Rutter told the group. In an interview after the awards Conte described what happened that morning on Nov. 4. It was the first day of hunting season and he was walking through the woods around 8:30 a.m. “trying to push deer” to where his friends were. While cutting through the swamp, he tripped and fell backward into the icy water. He let go of his 30-30 rifle and it struck a log, causing it to discharge. A bullet smashed through a couple of ribs on his right side and “blew a hole the size of a golf ball” when it exited

his back, Conte said. He radioed for help but feared the worst. “I figured that was it, I knew I was hit hard,” he said. “I thought my time was ticking, and it was. I lost three pints of blood.” Paul Battman was the first to arrive and he applied pressure to Conte’s wound. He alerted Scott Campbell how serious was the situation and said they needed a plan. What followed was described in a written account prepared by Campbell, the head operator at the municipality’s water treatment plant, that was read out at the Hastings Civic Centre by Rutter. Campbell said he radioed Shawn Murphy to call 911 and to ask for an ambulance and an helicopter. He instructed Tim Deschamps to go to Highway 62 to meet the paramedics. Campbell, Murphy and Will Orr then grabbed chainsaws to remove trees that had fallen across the bike trail to clear the way for the four-wheeler. Chris York got a truck and had it waiting at the clearing by the camp. Battman continued to apply pressure to Conte’s wound and hold his head out of the water while waiting for Charles Bennett to arrive. The two of them got their friend out of the marsh and Conte was able to walk 100 yards “before he had to lie down,” Campbell said. “When we got there Andrew looked pretty rough, very white and shaking.”

They strapped Conte onto the Suzuki with Murphy at the wheel; the others walked beside and behind the fourwheeler to make sure he stayed on. More help appeared on the scene with the arrival of three nurses – Jennifer Anthony, Catherine Jonas and Kim Sachs – all members of the Madoc volunteer fire department, who had been hunting in the area. Andrew Bennett drove the truck that carried Conte to where paramedics were waiting. He was put in the ambulance and then transferred to the helicopter and taken to Kingston General Hospital. “All (the) guys had a job (to do) and they did them well,” Campbell said, “and it all worked out.” What his eight friends did that day, with the help of the others, was “unbelievable,” Conte said. Their hunting camp is six kilometres off a maintained road and he was more than a kilometre into the bush when the accident happened. Conte, who spent eight days in intensive care, went back to work at Warkworth Institution in January. “I’ve got about a third of my right lung that may never come back,” he said. His brush with death hasn’t led Conte to reconsider his choice of pastimes. He’s never going to quit hunting, he said, but he’s “much more conscious” now about where he’s stepping.

Andrew Conte, centre, is surrounded by the people who saved his life last fall after a bullet ripped through his chest in a hunting accident. The combined efforts of his eight friends and three nurses – in back, l-r, Charles Bennett, Scott Campbell, Shawn Murphy, Chris York, Will Orr, Paul Battman and Andrew Bennett; in front, Jennifer Anthony, Catherine Jonas and Kim Sachs; absent is Tim Deschamps – earned them a special award by the Municipality of Trent Hills.

The special award was suggested by Councillor Bill Thompson who said the municipality should honor the men and women who saved Conte to “make them feel special because what they did

was downright heroic, and I couldn’t agree more,” Rutter said. After the presentation that drew a standing ovation, Conte thanked them once again for saving his life.

Anne of Green Gables gets ready to soar By Bill Freeman

Entertainment - Asphodel-Norwood – The curtain will soon rise on Norwood District High’s ambitious production of Anne of Green Gables, bringing to life Canada’s iconic sweetheart and the world she inhabited with spunk and gusto. “We’re a little nervous obviously with just two weeks left but things happen every day that make us feel a little better,” says NDHS guidance head Todd Murray, part of the directorial team guiding the production. “The kids are having fun and there are a lot of people involved. There’s just a lot going on setting this up,” Murray said during a vocal rehearsal last week under the supervision of lead director Tracey Irwin and NDHS graduate and Wall of Honour member Debra Richardson-Edge, also a member of the acclaimed singing group The Lemmon Sisters. Murray’s not at all surprised by the talent and diversity of skills the 23-member cast and even larger production team. “That’s why we’re doing it, we knew we had the talent,” he said. The production has also tapped into the high school’s feeder schools with a number of elementary school students involved in the show. “They are doing an awesome job,” Murray said. The show includes two Annes, Taylor Pedersen

and Brittany Stewart, who’ll share lead roles during the production’s short run. “It’s been a team approach when it comes to directing,” says Murray, citing the work of Irwin, Aaron Stinchcombe, Mike Sherwin and RichardsonEdge. “It’s awesome that we’ve got Debra. It’s a huge team approach here.” The production includes six backdrops painted and assembled by students and teachers. Backstage there’s an army of volunteers who have to move Gables and its environs in and out several times during the show. NDHS principal Mary Lou Steinmann, who’s also involved in the show , said it’s been “really rewarding” watching the students blossom in so many different ways. “This is the sort of experience young people will never forget; when they look back on their high school years this is one of the things they’ll talk about,” said Steinman. “There’s so much that happens in a musical, so many skills are developed; they’re learning about singing, about acting and working with each other and the audience.” Steinman said those collaborative skills are something they’ll use offstage as well. Cast and crew are making friends from all parts of the school and that has been fun to watch, she added.

“This group has become really tight-knit and that last performance night they’re going to be feeling ‘I don’t want this to be over.’” She’s also proud of how welcoming everyone has been to the elementary students who are taking part. “When they finally arrive at NDHS they’ll feel a part of the school because of this experience.” Nolan Fluke is one of those Grade 7 students and he already feels like he’s a member of the school community. “Now I pretty much know everybody when I walk through the hallways,” he said. “I’ve enjoyed my experience. When it’s over it’s going to be pretty sad because it’s much more fun to come over here than to walk straight home.” “It’s fun to act, I like being in plays. I’m not much good at singing but it’s still fun.” The play runs April 10 to 12. For ticket information call 705-639-5332.

Y O U ’ D      W H AT ? !

A patient story brings heartwarming reality to hospital board News – Quinte West – Some stories are heartwarming, some upsetting. Stories told about patients in hospital care can be both. “They help us remain grounded in what we do,” said Steve Blakely, chair of the board for Quinte Health Care. This story is about an 80-year-old woman who lived alone and was admitted to the hospital. She had no relatives nearby. “She was in the ER about 80 visits over two years for various things,” Blakely said. “She had frequent falls, limited mobility.” She spent a year in the hospital. Sometimes she demonstrated anger, and then sunk into a deep depression over life’s changes. Once she had a home, a family, a husband. The hospital contacted her daughter to help. Although the woman was determined to go back to her house, it was determined she was better off in longterm care (LTC). She was discharged from the hospital after a bed became available for her. This is one of the stories about Alternate Level of Care (ALC) provided by the hospital. “There is a general consensus that care of individuals with dementia and delirium is a growing global concern,” chief nursing officer and vice-president of patient services Katherine Stansfield stated in her report to the board. The Alzheimer’s Society estimates that 9,000 people over the age of 65 in the South East Local Health Integration Network (SELHIN) in 2012 had dementia. “In QHC the single most contributing barrier to dis-

charge home is complex behaviour,” Stansfield said. “Alternate Level of Care patients with the longest stay are those with complex behaviours as they most often must wait for a limited number of secure beds in Long Term Care before they are able to be discharged.” Patients in hospital settings frequently experience an increase in complex behaviours due to noise, activity, unfamiliar settings and the effects of their physical condition, such as infections. When the physical conditions are resolved, the behavioural conditions remain or become worse, making return home a challenge. Quinte Health Care is establishing a Behavioural Support Services Transition Unit (BSSTU) with 20 beds for patients with challenging behaviour who are living at home or in hospital or long-term care. These patients must be amenable to a rehabilitation program with an ultimate goal of discharge. This has been supported by SELHIN. The likely location would be in the Sills Wing of Belleville Hospital on the fourth floor, originally designed for complex care. “The architectural design is consistent with the need to provide barrier-free ambulation for patients while providing the ability to protect and monitor wandering,” Stansfield said. The proposed unit has physician support and a plan for funding and providing medical services. A dedicated geriatric psychiatrist and case manager will be provided from Providence Care’s regional program. The cost of renovating the unit and adding furniture and equipment is an estimated $480,174, which is to funded from the 2014/15 operational budget. build brand awareness stretch marketing dollars make more money

Pancakes for the playground By Judy Backus


Lifestyles - Marmora - Members of the local Pentecostal and Free Methodist Churches worked together for the fourth consecutive year to host a very successful pancake breakfast which was enjoyed by more than 125 people. The feast, held at the Community Centre on March 29, included pancakes, sausages, fruit, and juice along with tea or coffee. It was a great start to the weekend and

involved many parishioners as well as the Pastors of both churches, Alvin Peddle and Will Keller. All the food was donated by local businesses and organizations at no cost to the churches and, as in the past, the proceeds from the event will stay in the community. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s profit was a handsome $1000 which will be donated towards the purchase of new playground equipment for Memorial Park.

Mary Clemenger and Joan VanVolkenburg were kept busy serving pancakes and sausages to a crowd which included Jean Shannon, and numbered over 125 during a March 29 breakfast held by members of the local Pentecostal and Free Methodist Churches to support the purchase of new playground equipment for Memorial Park.
