Water levels now Easter fun in Norwood as high as in 2008 By John Campbellford

News - Trent Hills - Local officials were keeping a close watch on conditions along the Trent River this week, ready to help evacuate residents from properties where there was flooding. As of Monday no one had to be helped from their homes even though “water levels had pretty much reached the 2008 levels,” the last time there was a major flood in Trent Hills, Mayor Hector Macmillan said. “No one has requested an evacuation. If anyone’s left they haven’t told us.” Trent Hills Fire Chief Tim Blake said firefighters and public works employees built sandbag dykes at 28 residences in Green Acres and along Cedar Drive in Hastings. “We got all the vulnerable ones we identified from 2008,” he said. “Some places [that] got hit we can’t do anything for.” Laurie Beaubien, a Green Acres resident, said she and everyone else in the community near Hoards Station, were “extremely thankful” for the sandbags firefighters and public works staff spent a half-day last week stacking around their residences. “These guys are so fabulous,” she said. She moved to Green Acres from Port Hope ten years ago because the area is “beautiful—but it’s very frightening in the spring when flooding happens,” she said. “It’s very

worrying.” Macmillan said “all residents who requested help [got] looked after … Currently we’re holding our own and we’re able to keep up with the requests.” He and Blake noted many residents took it upon themselves to protect their properties with sandbags. “A lot of people are doing their own this year,” Blake said. Macmillan said so far the high water levels haven’t had the same impact as the municipality’s “first real big flood” in 2008, when “there was a lot of unknowns.” Trent Hills learned from that experience, he said. “We can be more proactive now rather than responsive.” Council recently made clear that the municipality in future will no longer build dykes of sandbags in flood-prone areas because it costs tens of thousands of dollars annually even though it isn’t the municipality’s responsibility when people’s lives aren’t at risk. “I know council wants to get out of this business but … I don’t know how we can ever totally get out of it,” the mayor said. “Where do people turn, even if someone wanted to sandbag their own house. They wouldn’t even know where to get the sandbags.” The mayor said he understands “it’s not a municipal responsibility” to be “floodproofing” residences in low-lying areas but Trent Hills Please see “Officials” on page 2

Councillor raises questions over pay adjustments


LUNCH Monday to Friday

Trent Hills

Total Distribution 474,000

News - Trent Hills - The municipality’s 16 non-union municipal employees have been given a two per cent pay increase, although one councillor had “a bit of a problem” with the rationale used to support the decision: a cost-of-living adjustment to match that given more than 60 unionized staff. Councillor Kim MacNeil agreed “it’s useful to pay people properly in management” but the increase

shouldn’t be tied to what was agreed upon in a union contract. She said she would be “happier” to see the non-union group be given a one per cent raise more in line with the recent trend in the consumer price index. CAO Mike Rutter made the recommendation for a two per cent adjustment, saying in his report to council the practice has been to give non-union staff cost of living

adjustments similar to what the municipality’s unionized workers receive “to maintain the gap between our front line and management positions, to ensure we remain competitive when recruiting, and to retain our existing staff.” “I don’t think it’s a good mechanism,” commented MacNeil, who said she supported pay raises where there

has been a change in responsibility or when there’s a vacant position that needs to be filled with a qualified person. By giving out “blanket” increases, “all you’re doing is having bracket creep for everything, you’re just adding expense everywhere,” she said. Councillor Bill Thompson said a two per cent wage in-




crease “is not very much” and council has a history of hiring “the best staff” it can and keeping their salary updated. Councillor Rosemary Kelleher-MacLennan spoke in favour of a two per cent increase across the board “so all our employees are treated fairly,” which helps retain staff and reduces the likelihood of their leaving, and then having to find replacements, who need to be trained, which costs time and money.

WAtcH FoR WilDliFe With spring finally here, collisions with wild animals will be on the rise. These collisions can result in serious vehicle damage, personal injury or even death. Reduce Your Collision Risk WATCH • Scan the road ahead from shoulder to shoulder. When you see wildlife beside the road, slow down and pass carefully as they may suddenly bolt onto the road. • Watch for the yellow wildlife warning signs that indicate an area of increased risk. Slow down when travelling through these areas. • Use high beams at night where possible and watch for glowing eyes of animals STEER • Stay in control. Watch your speed and take extra precautions when driving at night as visibility is greatly reduced. Slowing down will give you that extra second to respond. • Never swerve suddenly. This could cause your vehicle to go out of control or head into oncoming traffic. BRAKE • Brake firmly if an animal is standing on, or crossing, the road. Never assume the animal will move out of your way. STOP • Stop as safely as possible if a wild animal is crossing the road. Remember, if one animal crosses the road, others may follow. If possible, avoid driving during dusk or dawn when most wildlife collisions occur. Swerving to avoid hitting a wild animal may result in a more serious collision. If hitting a wild animal is unavoidable, remember to stay in control. R0012657964

News - Havelock - The Nourish Havelock community garden will blossom at the Peterborough Housing Corporation’s seniors building on George Street. The volunteer group is on side with the municipality’s recommendation that the George Street property be used for the garden and is eager to meet with residents to discuss the project. The municipality has agreed to a one-time funding infusion of $12,000 drawn from its Ontario Municipal Partnership Fund. Nourish Havelock had originally hoped to create their garden behind the medical centre but township council rejected that site but was anxious to see the project ma-

terialize suggesting there were better sites available. “It’s a good location,” says public works manager Brian McMillan. “We can try to keep the garden as close to the community centre as possible to give the tenants room.” The cost of supplying water to the site will be “minimal,” says McMillan, and because of its proximity to the school there might also be some “partnering” opportunities. The biggest chunk of the $12,000 budget could be spent on installing a “visual barrier,” perhaps a maintenance-free vinyl fence, if council feels that’s warranted, he added. “The price of the water line would be substantially less than the other two sites [medical centre, Old Norwood

News - Havelock - The Havelock Lions and the Easter Bunny have bonded well over the years and that was evident Saturday when hundreds of children and their families filled the Lions Community Hall for the seventh annual Easter egg hunt. And as usual, it was organized pandemonium with youngsters searching for treasure and holding onto prizes. “It’s so much fun for the kids [and] we probably get more fun out of it than they do watching them run around,” said Lions member Vicki Blakely, the event’s chief organizer. “The kids will be through here and it will be like a tornado for about an hour,” Blakely said. “A lot of what the Lions do helps children but it’s across the world or in the community and you don’t personally get to see it so this is a great opportunity for us to enjoy the joy they get from it.” Despite the temptation, the Lions have kept the event indoors and with the winter just ended with only hints of spring it is just as well. “Unfortunately you can’t depend on the weather so I think we’ll keep it indoors,” says Blakely. “You just never know what you’re going to get.” This year’s event was “scaled back a little bit” because donations were

Road],” McMillan said, perhaps as low as $700. The cost of fencing might be as high as $10,000 but could be “scaled back to 70 per cent of the area.” “I think a lot of the cost saved with the water line would be [taken up] by having a privacy fence put around the back of the residence and have a small four-foot buffer for residents so they don’t have to see the garden.” “I hope that the residents would see this as an attractive piece of something in their community,” said Deputy-mayor Andy Sharpe. “I hope that will come out as a positive side of things [during a meeting with Nourish and the Housing Authority].” CAO Pat Kemps says Peterborough Housing Corporation property manager Bob Gillespie is “very excited about the concept.” Gillespie is in favour of the project and will take it to his general manager and board of directors. The Nourish plan will not change with the group building 20 completely accessible raised garden beds. They expect to receive some funding from the YWCA along with in-kind material donations. There will be the same pathway accessibility with only minor changes, says McMillan. “Everything else will stick to the original plan.” “Our intent would be get as many people in the building to have gardens,” says Nourish chair Les Morris. “This is the very population we are aiming our project at. The main aim is to suit it to that population. The site is very feasible.” Morris says an agreement between the municipality and Peterborough Housing is “very doable.” “We want to see this project move forward,” Mayor Ron Gerow said. Gerow wants Nourish to take advantage of the 2014-planting season but still wants staff to provide more information about things like fencing. Starting the garden on the property is “paramount,” he says, but they need to know more about things the municipality will be responsible for. “Once residents understand what’s going on there they will enjoy it,” said Councillor Jim Martin. “There are folks in the building who I’m sure will love to have a place to garden,” Gerow added.

Volunteers help “grow communities” HBM backs access to recreation policy By Bill Freeman

News - Havelock - The Township of Havelock-Belmont-Methuen has come out strongly in favour of an access to recreation policy crafted by municipal representatives from across the county and city. The initiative has brought together the Peterborough County-City Health Unit, the eight municipalities that make up Peterborough County and the City of Peterborough in exploring ways to make recreation more “accessible, affordable and inclusive.” HBM has been part of the county-city committee which has met regularly to discuss access to recreation, both “structured” and “unstructured,” and services and facilities that help promote health and healthy living. “Municipalities can create these opportunities by designing community recreation facilities and services and creating administrative systems that enable residents to participate in ways that meet their needs,” says HBM Economic Development Officer Brian Grattan. The policy has the added value of supplementing requirements under the province’s Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA). “When they say access to recreation it’s not all about AODA, it’s also about breaking [barriers],” Grattan told council. One of those barriers can be cost, he said. An example of that in HBM was the public school board’s policy that prohibited children from skating at the arena unless they wore CSA-approved helmets. With not every student at Havelock Belmont Public School having helmets, skating programs were cancelled until township council stepped in and provided funding for helmet purchases. School skating programs resumed and have become a popular winter activity. With the municipality setting an example, the Smitty’s Wish committee “jumped in” and purchased skates. “There’s a prime example of council removing a barrier to allow someone to actively participate in recreation in the community,” said Grattan. Restoring the municipality’s Concession Street Park tennis court is another, he added, as are subsidies to support figure skating, minor soccer and softball. “Councils have done a great job over the years and I know that we feel it’s an important service offered to the community.” “Rural municipalities face many financial and geographical challenges in ensuring that residents have access to recreation opportunities,” said Grattan. “There are significant health and social issues that have evolved due to the lack of participation by residents in a variety of physical, cultural, social and recreational activities.” “Council and staff have always been strong advocates of making recreation accessible for residents,” Grattan said.

Care Havelock’s team of 75 volunteers, many of whom were recognized with special service pins during an afternoon luncheon. “For all that you do for us it’s the one day we can give back to you,” local Community Care co-ordinator Tammy Ross added. “We want to celebrate the many ways you help us grow this community. “Today is your day,” said Ross. “Volunteers grow communities” is the theme of this year’s series of Community Care appreciation celebrations and in HBM that’s especially evident through the work of those who help deliver a multitude of programs through the organization. “Volunteering help connect people, breaks down barriers and creates a sense of belonging,” says Belair. “As our client base grows so does our need for volunteers. This is how your community grows, by supporting and caring for each other.” In HBM, the 75 volunteers contributed over 10,400 hours of service in a variety of capacities. “Volunteers are absolutely crucial” to the well-being of the township, says HBM Mayor Ron Gerow. “We are blessed beyond belief.” Without volunteers, Gerow says there are many things that would not be able to happen in the township. “Council is very proud to support Community Care programs,” he said.

“Without these programs and that two years, Jessica Aubrey, Lois Mc- Crimmon, Diane Neill, Heidi Rivera, help there would be a lot of people in Neely, Merv McNeely, Shelly Paddison, Dona Thyret, John Tompson, Tamara Christina Schaar, Deborah Sheppard; Tompson, Rose Wakefield; ten years, despair.” Gerow recalled a tour he took last five years, Elaine (Kitty) Bast, Eleanor Diane Hall, Bob Morrison; 20 years, year as part of the Mayors for Meals day Cheyne, Ann Hershburg, Linda Mac- Merle Slack where he saw “firsthand the great things that come from the program. “People not only appreciate the efforts of the program” but the social aspect of it as well, he noted. Community Care board president Geoff Quirt says the board takes volunteer recognition “very seriously because we know Community Care would be nothing without the efforts of people like you.” The work volunteers do is “tremendously valued and tremendously important,” Quirt said. Volunteer Development Co-ordinator Karen Hartford reminded guests that their volunteers are the “hands and feet Receiving volunteer service pins from Community Care Havelock were (l-r) Dona Thyret, five years; of Community Care. “A lot of times you are the face of Rose Wakefield, five years; Jessica Aubrey, two years; Kitty Bast, five years; Lois McNeely, two years; Community Care,” Hartford said. “You Anne Hershburg, five years; Diane Neill, five years; Shelly Paddison, two years; Linda MacCrimmon, are also the first point of contact.

“Do tasers contribute to increased use of force?”

Dear Editor, In response to running scared Rawdon residents. Marvin and Megan Molloy, Tasers are a serious piece of equipment to put into the hands of our police officers, and I agree with you that the question, “Do Tasers contribute to increased use of force?” is a question that needs to be asked, and addressed. However, I hope that the people that do address the question do so in a calm, knowledgeable manner, using facts, and experience as opposed to rhetoric and unreasonable accusations. Police officers in this country are trained as well as, or better than, anywhere else in the world. They are well-educated, professional people that do a job under very stressful circumstances, that most people do not want, or are

not able to do. I am proud of the work they do, and the way that they go about doing it. Do they make mistakes? Sometimes, but they are few and far between. The oversight on everything that our officers are involved in is significant, and I believe that oversight ensures that they always do their best. I dare say some other professions could benefit from this type of oversight. When confronted with a hostile, or potentially hostile person, an officer has several options to deal with the situation. Foremost in his/her mind is to de-escalate. This may include talking, removing the irritant, or even keeping his distance. If, and when the situation escalates, the officer can rely on various tools, to meet the need, such as soft arm tactics, baton,

pepper spray, etc. At all times, the intent is to deescalate the situation. If all else fails, the officer is forced to use his firearm, which will result in death or grievous bodily harm. Why not give the officer another option before he/or she has to take that final step with the firearm? It is a rare instance where a Taser creates long-term injuries. Yes, they may occur, but death or grievous bodily harm will occur 100% of the time with a firearm. I think we should be proud of our officers, and have faith in their capacity to do their jobs. If a Taser will save lives, give them to the officers. If the officers misuse them, they should face the courts, just like anyone else. Jim Harris, Campbellford

HBM backs access to recreation policy Continued from page 4

The policy would not change any of the current practices being carried out by the township it just “formalizes and recognizes that council believes that recreation is an important service to the municipality.” The policy also reiterates that

the municipality will continue to work with individuals and organizations in recreational endeavours. “Programs, services and facilities will be planned, delivered and evaluated to ensure they are affordable, inclusive and responsive to community need.”

“I think it’s a great thing,” said Councillor Jim Martin. “I think we should pat ourselves on the back a little bit once in a while. We do a pretty good job trying to make sure people have access to recreation.” HBM becomes the fifth township to endorse the policy.

Spain: A handsome apology

Editorial - The Spanish parliament still has to pass the new citizenship law, but the cabinet has already approved it and Justice Minister Alberto Ruiz-Gallardón is sure there won’t be a problem. “In Spain, a clear majority realize we have committed a historical error and have an opportunity to repair it, so I am sure that law will pass with an immense majority in parliament,” he said. Historical apologies are in fashion Gwynne Dyer – ex-South African president F.W. De Klerk apologised for apartheid, ex-British prime minister Tony Blair apologised for the slave trade and the Irish potato famine, and Pope John Paul II apologised for the Crusades, the Inquisition and the Church’s historical oppression of women – but Spain isn’t just saying sorry for expelling its Jews 522 years ago. It’s offering to give their descendants back their citizenship. 1492 was a busy year for Ferdinand and Isabella, joint monarchs of the recently united kingdom of Spain. Christopher Columbus, Isabella’s favourite explorer, discovered the New World, Spain’s armies concluded the seven-century-long campaign of the Reconquista by destroying the last Muslim kingdom in the peninsula, Granada – and Ferdinand decided to expel all the Jews from Spain. Spain’s Jews were given only four months in 1492 to choose between becoming Christian or leaving their homes forever. Most left, settling in Muslim-ruled North Africa and the Ottoman Empire or in other parts of Christian Europe. They kept their Spanish language in the form of Ladino – Castilian written in the Hebrew script – and became know as Sephardic (i.e. Spanish) Jews. Ladino is now a dying language, but the Sephardim have retained their distinctive identity and are estimated to number up to a third of the world’s 13 million Jews today. Spain’s planned new law potentially covers almost all of them, for it is written very broadly. Applicants for Spanish citizenship need not speak Ladino or even be religious. They need only be able to show a link to Sephardic culture (it could be as little as a Sephardic family name). In most cases, however, the simplest route to Spanish citizenship would be to have a local rabbi certify their

Sephardic ancestry, or to get certification of their Sephardic heritage from a recognized Spanish-Jewish community. Spain’s justice minister reckons that only about 150,000 Sephardic Jews will take him up on the offer (which will remain open for two years), and he doesn’t think that many of them will actually want to move to Spain. But he promises that the government will not be strict in deciding who qualifies as Sephardic – “We are opening the door,” he said – and he may be surprised by how many actually apply. What Gallardón has not taken into account is the fact that Spanish citizenship is, for practical purposes, citizenship in all 28 member countries of the European Union. A Spanish passport-holder can enter Britain, France, Germany, Sweden or any other EU country without a visa, take up residence there, get a job or start a business there. What’s not to like about this offer? Almost half of Israel’s Jews are Sephardim, and Israel is a country where second passports are in great demand. The big Sephardic communities in the United States and Mexico will probably not be tempted, but the remaining Sephardic Jews in Muslim countries, including Turkey, certainly will be. Gallardón is thinking mostly about symbolism, which is important – but his offer will also have a real impact on many people’s lives. Portugal, which expelled its Jews shortly after Spain did, is also trying to make amends, though on a less grand scale. Last year it changed the law, and now grants citizenship to Sephardim who can demonstrate a connection to the Portuguese Jewish community. How much further might this example spread? Not very far, alas. Most of the great expulsions of history have occurred in the context of war, like the compulsory “population exchange” of the Greek minority in Turkey and the Turkish minority in Greece after the First World War, or the expulsion of ten million Germans from their ancestral homes in eastern Europe at the end of the second. It’s because the Jews of Spain and Portugal were entirely blameless and ruthlessly victimised that there is broad popular support in both these countries for this act of apology and belated recompense. All credit to Spain and Portugal for doing it – but it probably wouldn’t be happening even there if it seriously inconvenienced the majority.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Criticism is necessary as Putin emulates Hitler Dear Editor, I read with interest Terry Bush’s article concerning Canada’s role in the realm of international politics and in particular his take on Russia.  First let me say that I enjoy our local paper’s foray into national and global issues!  The article explains that Canada has, under the Harper government, reflected the policies of the United States where at one time we weren’t afraid to do what is uniquely in the best interests of our country. I believe Mr. Bush may not have taken into account that Canada has taken a much harder line in our relations with Iran than our American allies.  This government refused to acquiesce to Iran recently over the issue of nuclear capability.  While the United States seems to be drinking the kool-aid the Iranians are selling about freezing their nuclear capability, Canada does not share the belief the Iranians will be true to their word.  One need look no further than Crimea to see what independent states in a world with oversight will do to further their own political agenda. Most importantly, in my opinion, is why our Prime Minister is the most vocal international leader in denouncing Russia

over the Crimean situation.  As Putin emulates Hitler in trying to reunite the Russian-speaking people there is a concern for each of us in Canada.  In 1940, two years after Hitler annexed the Czech Sudetenland to unite his German-speaking people under the Third Reich, he rolled into Alsace-Lorraine along the German-French border.  The significance?  This region of Europe was rich with iron ore and coal too highly sought after natural resources that fuelled the Nazi war machine.   In terms of today, Canada has laid claim to something that is well documented that Putin wants – the Arctic – full of subterranean natural resources. Naturally I have no idea what Prime Minister Harper is thinking but if I were him I would be concerned that Putin will abandon recent international proceedings over this territorial dispute and send the mighty Russian Navy to the far north to lay claim to what we believe is ours. Which is why I am pleased that our Prime Minister is leading the world in strongly criticizing the Russian President.

Sometimes things just sneak up on you By Terry Bush Editorial - A few years back, I can remember hearing something about a new sport which was considered by many to be a little too far out there for polite Canadian society. The Americans loved it of course but then again, Americans have a passion for many things we don’t fully understand like watching cars go round in circles for hours on end. Not that NASCAR doesn’t have a fan base here in Canada judging by the decals adorning vehicles in our area but still, its base is solidly in the southern US. Before I get up on my high-brow horse I will admit that I have sporadically watched a bit of NASCAR over the years, especially during the Richard Petty era when I owned a muscle car, but I have never fully understood NASCAR’s appeal. That could be because I usually get bored and turn it off before seeing one of the spectacular crashes that nobody will admit they enjoy watching but obviously do. That’s why they’re a mainstay on sports television of course. (I will admit that crashes do have entertainment value but then again, we four Bush boys did spend a bit of time at Riverview Speedway between Frankford and Trenton back in the old days). But as usual, I digress. A few years ago, there was much hue and cry from both politicians and regular folk that mixed martial arts had no place in our fair country. All that has now changed, as one would expect in a place where a guy like Don Cherry comes close to being hailed as the greatest Canadian ever. In the television wasteland we’re all forced to endure with the Diehard, Bourne and Transporter movies playing every day for months on end, we can easily say we have 500 channels but there’s nothing worth watching most of the time. So what’s a guy to do? Well this guy turned on the UFC and got hooked. Once I got over the initial shock of seeing two guys beat each other senseless, I found the sport to be refreshingly honest. It’s just straight up fighting to see who wins. We can all probably agree that four out of five hockey fights are staged and the other fight is between two guys who are genuinely mad at each other over some infraction. As Don Cherry points out ad nauseum, most of the time the tough guys pat each other on the back after a good bout and head off to the penalty box having earned thousands of dollars for a couple of minutes work. Like anything else, there is an art to fighting in hockey. After all, one does have to stay on one’s feet throwing punches while wearing bulky equipment and a pair of skates. But then again, fights are not what hockey is all about and they’re usually conspicuous by their absence come playoff time. Pro wrestling is also entertainment to some though I’ve never figured out how anyone can listen to ten minutes of tough talk for every five minutes of actual wrestling taking place. Pro wrestlers are huge men and a quick Google will tell you that many don’t make it out of their 50s due to steroid use and heart attacks. And then there’s the UFC. If there’s anything fake about it, I haven’t seen it yet. It’s perfect in it’s simplicity. Two guys or two women in perfect physical shape meet in a cage and beat the crap out of each other, usually until one person gives up or is knocked out. Forget all the rules about fair fighting you learned as a kid. In mixed martial arts, it’s okay to kick someone in the head, stomp on their feet, choke them out or elbow them in the face. No kicking in the goodies though. There are rules. I’m impressed by the shear toughness of some of these individuals and that’s probably what got me hooked in the first place. When you see someone take an absolute pounding, get knocked to the mat bleeding profusely, see his opponent jump on him and deliver a couple more shots and elbows to the head and then the guy taking the abuse struggles to his feet and flattens his opponent knocking him out with an uppercut, you just have to give the man his due. That guy’s got heart. So I’m thinking maybe we should take it to the next level. Instead of sending in the troops when we have differences of opinion with other countries, why don’t we just settle it in the octagon. I’d suggest letting the politicians fight it out, considering most of them are allergic to the battlefield but really, can you see someone like Stephen Harper taking on Vladimir Putin? No, we’d be better off sending our best MMA fighters instead. That way, the so-called collateral damage, meaning ordinary citizens, would be entertained instead of killed. Then again, what do I know? I’ve only been in two fights in my life and they were both with my best friend at the time and both happened before the age of 13. All I know is for some reason I enjoy the UFC and am a little embarrassed to admit it. But then again, I also enjoy Shaun the Sheep so maybe something’s not quite right upstairs.

MD recruitment efforts making a difference By John Campbellford

News - Trent Hills - The Trent Hills Physician Recruitment and Retention Committee is continuing “to make a difference in the health and well-being” of the 30,000 citizens who live in the municipality and surrounding catchment area, says its project coordinator. “The nature of recruitment is such that you are always recruiting,” Laurie Smith told council in her annual report on what’s being done with the $30,000 the committee receives from Trent Hills, which accounts for half of its budget. “People come, people go.” Especially in the emergency department at Campbellford Memorial

Hospital (CMH) where she’s always on the lookout for additional physicians to work shifts. Smith told council that “close to 98 per cent” of patients admitted to CMH first go through the emergency department, which sees around 20,000 people a year. But she also has to find replacements for family practice physicians who are retiring or leaving, in the short term, as well as prepare for the future through succession planning to ensure there’s never a gap in service. Her target for 2014-2015 is to find two doctors. Success stories in the past year have included Dr. Kelly Parks setting up a practice locally, Dr. Davina

Lansing agreeing to covering another physician’s practice until the end of the year, and Dr. Bruce Bain becoming the new chief of emergency services at the hospital, as of April 1. Dermatologist Dr. Renita Alhulwalia also held her first clinic in Campbellford this month, added Smith, who’s in discussion with an ear, nose and throat specialist to provide service in the area as well. Her role as the committee’s project manager includes taking part in a recruiting tour held every fall and arranging for a half-dozen students from medical school to spend a week in Trent Hills to experience life and the practice of medicine in a small, rural community.

Hastings Legion gets “boost” with Trillium grant By Bill Freeman

News - Hastings - The Royal Canadian Legion Branch 106 in Hastings has been given a “real boost” from the Ontario Trillium Foundation. The Branch has made a successful bid for funding and will receive $44,700 to help improve energy efficiency by replacing the roof and windows. It will also add some new

tables and chairs upstairs and “do a little work” downstairs, says Branch president Bob Crate. “We have to come up with $12,000 ourselves but that’s doable,” Crate told The Independent. “We’re working hard to get the roof started.” Crate says the Branch has been looking at a major roof replacement project for some time now. That alone

A common method is through the use of locum (relief) physicians who become familiar with the community and the hospital while filling in for local doctors. That’s how the new president of medical staff, Dr. Joe Barbero, came to stay. Smith said Trent Hills has provided consistent funding because it understands the importance of recruiting physicians, having experienced a critical shortage more than a decade ago, when many residents were without a doctor. The municipality is still designated as an underserviced area, which means the province will make available $80,000 over four years to physicians to set up a practice in the community.


Wanted dead or live

Dear Editor, The Ontario Liberal government, under pressure from the hunting lobbyists have allowed the spring bear hunt to begin in eight different areas in the province. This action will now allow hunters to hunt black bears. Bears are the only big game animal with dependent young that are hunted in the spring. Natural Resources Minister David Oraziett’s Liberal Party states the program will ban hunting cubs or female bears with cubs. An Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources report in 2009 found 34 per cent of bears killed in the spring are female and an average of 17 per cent of those are adults with cubs. The orphaned cubs die of dehydration, starvation and predation. Minister Orazietti, according to your own

ministry, banning spring bear hunting for female bears and cubs doesn’t work. In the eight areas where the Liberals have opened the spring hunt, the black bears will be hunted and chased by hunting dogs for a total of five months each year. Given the fact that bears hibernate for the winter, this pro-hunting action the Liberals have done will give little peace for the bears. Baiting and killing the hungry bears in the spring is like shooting fish in a barrel. Killing these animals is not a solution as other bears will move into the vacant areas resulting in the continued killing of bears and the orphaning of their cubs. The minister should reinstate completely the excellent bear wise program in these areas and

also the rest of the province. If the minister is determined to continue this barbaric “hunt”, he should allocate significant funds to those who are licensed rehabilitators so they can care for the injured and orphaned cubs. If the Liberals don’t stop the hunt, then we should vote them out. If you oppose the spring bear hunt, please contact you MPP, Premier Kathleen Wynne at Kathleen.Wynne@Ontario. ca, 416-325-1941 or Premier Kathleen Wynne, Legislative Building, Queens Park, Toronto, ON, M7A 1A1 or Minister David Orazietti 416-314-2301 or Rick Foley, Essa Township

was to cost between $35,000 to $40,000. “Over the years we’ve done some patching. The roof’s best-before date was a long time ago so the Trillium grant was a real boost,” he said. “It’s something that we’ve needed badly for quite a while now so we’re very pleased. Trillium has treated us very well. “Getting that done is a really big boost for us and it will put us in a good spot to go forward.” The Branch plans on starting the project right away. As part of the Trillium application the Branch had to submit an engineer’s assessment and that information has been very useful, says Crate. “He gave us some really good insight [that] we’ll be able to use when we’re talking to contractors.”

It’s “an eye-opener” for them, she said. Last year Smith added social media to her tools for attracting physicians, setting up a Facebook page. “I like to focus more on the culture of the community and hospital,” she said, “something that will show we have more to offer than just a job.” Councillor Rosemary KelleherMacLennan thanked Smith for her work. “What you do is obviously working,” she said. Smith, who works as a physician liaison and ER scheduler at the hospital, said in an interview that “typically it takes 18 months to two years to recruit a physician.”

News - Norwood - Water levels continue to rise in area lakes and rivers posing continued flood risks for people living in low-lying and flood-susceptible areas. According to the Otonabee Region Conservation Authority over a 48-hour period over the weekend Little Lake in

Peterborough and the Otonabee River rose about 12 centimetres and it will be “several days” before relief comes to the Otonabee River. Water levels on Rice Lake rose five centimetres on Saturday and another five centimetres on Sunday and levels on the Trent River to Hastings will continue to rise in accordance with water levels on Rice Lake. All residents living in low-lying, floodsusceptible areas along the shorelines of the Kawartha Lakes, Otonabee River, Rice Lake and Trent River to Hastings should monitor water levels closely and take necessary precautions to protect persons and property,” says ORCA

Conservation authority staff will continue to monitor conditions in conjunction with area water managers such as the Trent-Severn Waterway, Ministry of Natural Resources and Ontario Power Generation. As well, the conservation authority will maintain communication with federal, provincial and municipal emergency response personnel. The conservation authority notes that local municipalities are the first to respond to and assist in times of flood emergencies. If you require assistance contact your local municipality. In the event of a flood emergency residents are urged to call 911.

County, developer in talks over affordable housing units By John Campbellford

News - Campbellford - Discussions are continuing between Northumberland County and the developer of a 24-unit affordable housing subdivision on King Street over the rent being charged. County CAO Elizabeth Savill said the units had been advertised “at a certain rent … and there were concerns raised to the county [by individuals] that those rents may be changing.” Trent Hills Mayor Hector Macmillan said, “there was a misunderstanding about the rents” which he understands “will be going back to what was originally proposed.” The units were built with slightly more than $2 million in funding from the federal and provincial governments that had been allocated to the county to increase its affordable housing stock. When the agreement was struck between Northumberland and Bloor Park Village Inc., the rent was set at $600 a month for each of the 14 one-bedroom units, and $650 per month for the other ten two-bedroom units. The project was delayed by

an Ontario Municipal Board hearing which “put so much pressure on the construction workers it created some havoc,” Macmillan said. Savill said, “the contribution agreement was very clear that the rents were established to be affordable” in exchange for the government funding, which made it possible for the units to be built. Bloor Village’s John Spina declined to go public with his comments when contacted but said in an email later he would issue a “a full statement” sometime soon. She, Mark Darroch, director of community and social services, and two other officials from the county met in camera with Trent Hills council April 15 to give an update on the discussions that have been taking place since February. “[We’re] very hopeful that the whole issue will be resolved very shortly and we’ll be able to fill all the units with people who are so badly needing it in the area,” Cavill said. Not many are currently occupied. “We certainly hope they’ll be available very soon,” Savill said.

Trent Hills Relay for Life shorter event duration News - Campbellford - The Trent Hills Relay for Life will feature a new format this year. The event, which takes place September 5 at the fairgrounds in Campbellford will be of a shorter duration running from 7 p.m. Friday to just after midnight. This year’s format will still encompass all of the aspects that people love about Relay but will be packed into a fivehour event. Last year 194 participants at Relay For Life in Trent Hills joined together to raise $130,027. Proceeds from this year’s event will continue to support Canadian Cancer Society research and community services. Each year thousands of people, friends, families, coworkers and cancer survivors unite for one night for a common cause.

Eggs galore in Hastings Photos: Bill Freeman By Bill Freeman

News - Hastings - The Easter Bunny was a very generous visitor to Hastings Saturday afternoon. The floppy-eared bundle of chocolate fun delivered over 5,500 Easter eggs to organizers of the third annual Easter Egg Hunt that filled the grounds at Hastings Public School Saturday. Organized by the Archibald family with big assists from Hastings Village Video, Reg Ward Insurance, Darrell Lyttle, Darlene Forde and Melissa Fleming, the Khloe Ohno, three, clutches the grand prize good- event was another big success ie-filled basket she won during the third annual with at least 70 youngsters Easter Egg Hunt in Hastings. At least 70 children and their families on hand to search for thousands of sweet took part in the event.

chocolate treasure. There were also three additional prizes for the first three youngsters to discover designated over-sized eggs; first prize was a basket laden with Easter treats, second prize was a chocolate pen and third prize was a hollow chocolate egg. “It has grown. A lot of kids are very excited,” said Stacey Archibald, one of the event’s organizers. They lucked out again with the weather and Archibald admits that with the overlong winter and its unpredictable weather organizers were a bit worried about the outdoor hunt.

Shania Kroes, eight, did well during the third annual Hastings Easter Egg Hunt that took place on the grounds of Hastings Public School Saturday afternoon. Over 5,500 chocolate eggs were up for grabs during the hunt. Over 70 children took part in the event.

“But we’ve been lucky [again]. The grounds are great.” All three egg hunts have played out under lovely blue spring skies, although there was a bit of a chill in the air on Saturday to remind participants of the cold weather that held Hastings in its grip for the past several months. Archibald says there is a possibility that they move next year’s egg hunt to the downtown ball diamond which would then give families a chance to use the nearby playground before the hunt gets under way. The prize winners were: Khloe Ohno, Youngsters get ready to go after some of the more than 5,500 chocolate eggs that were hidden on the grounds of Hastings first prize; Colby Turcott, second prize Public School for the third annual Hastings Easter Egg Hunt that was held Saturday afternoon. Over 70 children took part in and James Stoner, third prize. the event.

Parents and kids learn the ABCs of starting school By Sue Dickens

News - Campbellford - The ABCs of preparing for school were the focus of the Road to Kindergarten, a one-stop fun and information event held recently at the Ontario Early Years Centre (OEYC) here. “What we want is for the children to feel prepared so they can feel successful,” said Sasha Korper, early literacy consultant for Northumberland County. The event is put on by the Northumberland Literacy Committee and is held annually in Cobourg and in Campbellford. “We’re here for the morning in Campbellford then we go down to Brighton Public School for the afternoon so we can get that whole eastern section covered,” Korper explained. This is the fourth time the event has been held here and the eighth time for Cobourg. A new brochure is being made available to parents in the package they receive when registering their children at their school for kindergarten. “The school boards have been working with us … and are listed on the brochure and they were present when they developed this brochure so everyone is sending the same message,” she explained. “And that message is, if they love it they learn, that’s the bottom line,” she added. Play and learn is a big catchphrase used Evangeline (Evee) Roulston age three, of Campbellford, will be registering in the Early Years literature. for Kindergarten and so her dad Tim took her to the Road to Kindergarten “In the old days when you and I were goheld recently at the Ontario Early Years Centre Campbellford. Getting used ing to school there was lots of learning the to the school bus was just one of the things they did at the event.

Businessman sets course for career in local politics “I’ve always had a longstanding interest in the community,” he says. “I really believe in the lifestyle and enjoy the lifestyle in the Municipality of Trent Hills and everything it has to offer.” Along with that comes “some firm opinions, of course,” he adds. “Everybody running for council should have, and be prepared to express what they ... believe in, and the direction they would like to see the municipality go.” Boyd was a member of the Warkworth Kinsmen Club when it was the driving force behind the building of the arena. After moving here from Toronto in 1975, he worked as a carpenter and general contractor before launching Clarion, which restores antique and classic wooden boats as well as designs and builds new versions. “We’ve grown that from a 3,000-square-foot facility [in a former marina] to a

children to learn is to actually play … so we have crafts, we have face painting, we have blocks and we have opportunities like that at the OEYC which is of course where we are basing this event for children to come with their parents to play,” she noted. Sandy Stapley, head of the OEYC centre in Campbellford, “is our person on the ground here and that’s key in terms of doing this as a community. She’s our early childhood specialist,” said Korper. The big challenge these days is that parents lead very busy lives. “Mostly we see moms at this event, but today we have a dad, yay … but parents are working and they may have an older child, sometimes two, sometimes they have one with special needs … maybe who is a bit slower to develop, maybe they are just young, maybe they are just going to be 3½ when they go into kindergarten so the Road to Kindergarten helps them prepare,” she explained. Developing routines for the children before they start school is encouraged.

“That way their child is used to the routine. Any change can be upsetting to them,” said Korper, who pointed out that parents aren’t expected to do this alone. Response to this event has been “excellent,” said Korper. “The numbers have been increasing every year. At this

point we’re maybe getting 30 to 40 families attending.” “We can’t do this alone and parents are not expected to do this alone, nor are agency people expected to do this alone … the idea is working as a team means we can really support these kids to transition to school effectively.”

9,000-square-foot facility,” he says. “With the business background I have a pretty good understanding of how things should operate, and contributing to the running of a municipality is really quite similar.” You have to be fiscally responsible, do what’s in the best interests of the corporation, and “come to the realization that you can’t have everything. You have to work within your means.”

News - Trent Hills - Local businessman Dwight Boyd has a vision for Trent Hills and he’s looking for the support of people in Ward 2 (Percy) to help it become real. The owner of Clarion Boats in Campbellford says one of his highest priorities in running for council is to preserve “the peaceful and tranquil lifestyle” that residents of Trent Hills currently enjoy. “I strongly believe in fiscal responsibility,” he adds in an interview. “Everything that we do as a municipality has to be done in an accountable, responsible and transparent manner.” In the past three years, Boyd has been vocal on two controversial issues, vigorously opposing granting ATVs access to 85 kilometres of municipal roads in Trent Hills, and building a river crossing between Alma and Second streets to handle half the traffic in downtown Campbellford.

Aron Theatre made more accessible thanks to grant Entertainment – Campbellford – When the curtain goes up at the Aron Theatre, another milestone, one of many, will be centre stage at the Aron Theatre Co-operative. Workers spent a day replacing the existing wooden entrance doors with new aluminum ones, and installing a power door-operator. “Thanks to a Trillium grant primarily for barrier-free accessible washrooms, a portion was put to the doors as well,” said Mark White, Aron’s vice president.

Funding in the amount of $23,200 came from the Ontario Trillium Foundation but as well the theatre has received $5,000 from the Campbellford/Seymour Community Foundation and $5,000 from the Municipality of Trent Hills. ‘”It’s just incredible we get that support. It’s really important,” said White. Using local contractors, skilled trades and volunteers, the new enhancement to the Aron was completed in one day. The job of putting in the new accessible doors was done by Cody Humphries and Fred Bol-

ton of Peterborough Glass & Window. “We are putting in brand new aluminum commercial doors with push buttons making the theatre wheelchair accessible,” said Bolton, the day of the renovation. “We will get it all done today.” Accessibility improvements to the Aron began in January 2013 with the complete reconfiguration and restoration of the theatre seating area to accommodate wheelchair access including the addition of spaces for patrons in wheelchairs and their companions, White explained. That project was funded by members of the co-op through seat sponsorships. “The work was completed with thousands of volunteer hours from members of our community,” he said. The success of the Aron Theatre has led to the coining of a phrase, “We call it Aron-

dipity,” White added. From the time the community rallied to buy the theatre back in November, 2009, until now, the improvements and community support has been there. At that time Russ Christianson, (who was president of the Campbellford-Seymour Community Development Corporation), spearheaded the effort to transform the theatre into a co-op in order to keep it alive after long-time owner Paul Imperial’s retirement. From “celebrities” walking the red carpet to its Wednesday matinees, to local fund-raising events, the not-for-profit cooperative provides a venue for everything from movies and music to community events. “The Aron Theatre Co-op is a not-forprofit community organization. Our vision is to transform the Aron Theatre into

a sustainable cultural hub, open to everyone in our community,” said White. “On May 4, in conjunction the Aron’s Annual General Meeting, we will be celebrating with a number of events that day to showcase our improvements to accessibility and promote accessibility in Trent Hills,” said White. A press release will be issued

closer to the date to let everyone know what will be happening. “The Aron is very grateful for the continued support of our funders, members, volunteers, and neighbours who have enabled us to take a leadership in improving our community,” said White. For more information about the Aron go to:

Scavenger hunt a new addition to fundraising walk-a-thon By Sue Dickens

News - Warkworth - It’s time to dust off those walking shoes and think about participating in the fourth annual Bridge Hospice Walk-a-thon. “There’s something new this year— a fun scavenger hunt,” said Elizabeth Aikenhead, who is organizing the event along with help from Martha Murphy and Dr. Bob Henderson. “Clues will be placed along the Millennium Trail, the main street, in shop windows and so on,” she explained. Walkers will be given a booklet so they can fill out the answers to questions after finding the clues along the way. “For example we might ask what year a building was built and there could be a plaque somewhere nearby with that information,” she explained. “The whole idea is to make the walk-athon more engaging and friendly. Instead of just walking down the road on the trail the participants will be gathering clues. It helps to engage them in the process and

familiarize people with the community and its history,” she added. Last year Aikenhead participated in the event and even though there was no scavenger hunt, she said, “It was a lot of fun.” “The scavenger hunt should make this year’s even more fun for everyone,” she noted. The walk takes about one to one and a half hours to complete. “Walkers will meet at the Warkworth arena and head uptown and along the Millennium Trail. “All ages are welcome from youngsters to seniors. At any point participants can turn around and head back,” Aikenhead commented. Members of the Warkworth Community Service Club will be stationed along the route to make sure walkers complete it safely. This year local physiotherapist Kathy Thompson, of Closing the Gap Healthcare Group, is sponsoring the walk-a-

thon. “They’ll be spreading the word to their clients as well and their team. We’re hoping for a turnout that reflects beyond Warkworth and includes Trent Hills,” said Aikenhead. “And there will be prizes including passes to the Aron Theatre, to the Indian River Reptile Zoo, from Joey’s Chocolate Bar, a gift basket from Your Lucky Stars Café, owned and operated by Aikenhead, and possibly more. Prizes will be given for the highest dollar number in pledges, for the most pledges, and most active scavenger hunt completion, for ages 12 and under and 12 and over in each category. The event will be held rain or shine and all proceeds go to The Bridge Hospice.

Folks can register when they get to the arena the day of the event, Saturday, May 3. Walk-a-thon start time is 10:30 a.m. with registration at 10 a.m. “This is a walk, not a run and it’s not a race,” said Aikenhead. Tax receipts can be issued to donors who give more than $20. The Bridge Hospice, the first residential hospice in Northumberland County, is a registered charity created by people who believe that individuals at the end of life’s journey should have a choice about where to spend their final days.

Plebiscite on Campbellford’s bridge options not possible By John Campbell

News - Trent Hills - Residents won’t be asked which proposed river crossing they prefer for downtown Campbellford. According to the 2014 Voters’ Guide for Ontario Municipalities and School Board Elections, in order for the question to be put

on the ballot in this fall’s municipal election, “it must be about a matter that the municipality has authority for, and that the municipality can implement.” That rules out Trent Hills because replacement of the bridge over the Trent River, either at the current location, or several hun-

dred metres to the south, between Second and Alma streets, is the responsibility of Northumberland County. The guide further notes: “There is no ability for members of the public to force a council to put a question on the ballot.” The idea of putting the contro-

versial issue to a vote was raised at a public information centre held recently at the high school to explain why the Second Street proposal was favoured by the consultant. In raising the subject last week, Mayor Hector Macmillan told council he would have “ab-

Councils want Kemptville campus to stay open an “immediate” two-year moratorium on any closure and that it reinstate the academic intake for programs in the 2014 fall semester. The North Grenville resolution has resonated with the councils of Havelock-BelmontMethuen and Asphodel-Norwood which have stepped up to support their campaign. HBM council also wants their resolution of support forwarded Peterborough MPP and Minister of Rural Affairs Jeff Leal. “North Grenville council are adamant that the solution is more than simply relocating the programs to southern Ontario,” North Grenville Mayor David

Gordon says. “This is a hot-button issue I can assure you and we should be supporting this,” AsphodelNorwood Deputy-mayor Joe Crowley said. “It would be a huge crush” if the programs were to end, added HBM Mayor Ron Gerow. The closure would “deny access to post-secondary agricultural training east of Guelph and reduces the number of skilled trades program seats in eastern Ontario,” the resolution says. The closure will result in the loss of over 100 jobs at the campus. In the North Grenville resolution they are asking for a

The current radar signs are located on Highway 7 in the east end of Havelock and south of the village along County Road 30 near Old Norwood Road. The HBM community policing committee discussed the portable radar boards during its last meeting, said Deputy-mayor Andy Sharpe. They want to know if they can be moved around, he told council. “We did talk about the boards last year, about trying to get them moved,” noted Councillor Jim Martin. “We looked at several locations and the electricity to run them,” added Mayor Ron Gerow. In order to place them on a hydro pole along a rural road there would have to be an agreement with Hydro One, said Economic Development Officer Brian Grattan who felt there would be a flat rate charge similar to a streetlight. Grattan noted that the OPP has said

that portable radar signs as well in a setting like a rural road as they do in the locations where they are currently fixed where cars are slowing down to a different posted speed limit. “They might not be near as visible as where they are now,” he said. “They are quite visible because the poles are on the edge of the road.” They would not be as visible in rural areas because of where poles are situated. Grattan has agreed to

do a “quick investigation” with Hydro One to see what would be involved and the cost. He will forward that information on to the township’s police services board and council. “What would have to happen” to accommodate a portable sign. Mayor Gerow noted that in the past they had discussed using the portable radar sign at a location on the Sixth Line of Belmont and on County Road 46.

meeting with Premier Wynne and an opportunity for local stakeholders to participate in “developing alternative solutions to the closure which is slated to occur by the end of 2015.” In mid-March a public meeting drew 400 local “stakeholders” who “asserted the critical importance of the Kemptville Campus to the continued success of the agri-food industry, skilled trades and overall economic development in eastern Ontario. “Access to research facilities and expertise is necessary for the agrifood sector to innovate and succeed in the global economy and maintain networks that have allowed food producers and processors to keep pace in an industry that is continuously changing,” the resolution states. North Grenville council is urging the premier in “the strongest possible” way to issue the moratorium and to “engage local stakeholders in developing a sustainable and viable solution to preserve the delivery of existing academic and research programs” at the campus.


News - Havelock - Two local councils have lent their support to efforts to keep Kemptville’s 97-year-old agricultural college open. In March, the University of Guelph announced that it was relocating its academic and research programs from its Kemptville campus to Ridgetown and Guelph. The announcement sent shockwaves through eastern Ontario and generated a vigorous response from the municipality of North Grenville which is home to the historic campus. They are asking Premier Kathleen Wynne, who is also the Minister of Agriculture, for

next month which option it favours and its recommendation will then go to Trent Hills and Northumberland County councils for a vote. Macmillan said another suggestion made at the public meeting, that the committee make its choice by way of a secret ballot, is “an excellent idea.” The committee’s terms of reference also provides that municipal and county staff members who sit on the committee will vote in the matter, along with elected officials and representatives of the chamber of commerce, the BIA and the Second Street Residents’ Association.

solutely supported” holding a plebiscite on the two bridge options, had it been possible, even though he has reservations about the idea. “I do have concerns that people wouldn’t have almost seven years of data in front of them so they could actually … make an educated decision,” he said. Macmillan pointed out that the process for deciding the issue was set out in the terms of reference that were set for the steering committee overseeing the completion of the environmental assessment that was begun in 2007 to determine the best location for a new bridge.

Dear Editor, It is now April and still no decision from the Ontario Civilian Police Commission as to whether or not Greg Oliver will be reinstated to the Stirling-Rawdon Police Services Board either as chair or as a community member. The decision should have been rendered long before now and is one more insult to Greg by OCPC. He was removed as chair without explanation, effectively silenced and his basic right to at least “presumption of innocence” taken away. Ridiculous and unfounded charges were brought against him. Is it any wonder he

chose to fight back? To those who believe this situation is only “small town politics at its best,” I ask you to look at it in a different way. There is a much deeper issue here. Should an organization like OCPC have the power to take away anyone’s basic human rights in a democracy? Greg Oliver is an ordinary citizen who was simply trying to serve his community while raising a family and running a business. In his role as chair he voiced concern about Police Chief Foley’s contract. This was a legitimate concern and has since proven to be justified. He expressed fear about the high

cost of policing and the impact this would have on the taxpayers of Stirling-Rawdon. Again his concerns are well founded. Greg had many concerns as any conscientious police board chair would have (how did Stirling end up with all those officers?) Interestingly enough, at the OCPC hearing, the prosecutor implied that in his quest for the truth Greg managed to hurt some feelings. Surely OCPC is not pinning their case on hurt feelings. Otherwise everyone would be lining up to sue anyone who ever offended them. How absurd! Admittedly, errors were made during a meeting due

to Greg’s inexperience in his new role. But these were minor errors; nothing to build a case on. Greg has been unfairly maligned for voicing his concerns and for trying to tackle serious issues. One of the tragic consequences of this is that good, honest citizens will hesitate to assume any public office because they know that what happened to Greg Oliver could happen to them. I implore OCPC to stop trying to “save face” and to resolve this awful situation as quickly as possible. Carol Sharpe, Stirling-Rawdon

Township lauds “good news” about infrastructure program By Bill Freeman

News - Havelock - Calling it a “good news story,” Havelock-Belmont-Methuen will be looking closely at “shovelready” projects that might qualify for components of the New Building Canada Fund (NBCF) money that will be rolled out over the next ten years. “This is certainly good new. It’s something municipalities have been asking for some time,” Mayor Ron Gerow said of the $14-billion, ten-year NBCF which will offer funding through three components: the National Infrastructure Program, the Provincial-Territorial Infrastructure Component and the Small 30 NESBITT DR, BRIGHTON

Communities Fund. “I’m not sure how all this is going to work but it it’s going to be driven through the provincial structure by the looks of it,” Gerow said. Mayor Gerow says funding for smaller municipalities under 100,000 will probably come later but he says there may be an opportunity for HBM “in some of the others” and is asking staff if there are any local projects that are ready for shovels. CAO Pat Kemp said that staff talked about possibilities at a department heads meeting. “We ran through a few scenarios and


we’re going to bring back a report that will suggest some of the priorities we’ll like to see on the table and get direction on that,” said Kemp. “What we feel may be a priority may or may not be what a majority of council feels is a priority.” “I think we need to look at the big picture and decide the benefits to the municipality in the future,” she added. One potential project that should get attention is George Street, said Deputymayor Andy Sharpe. “One of the things we’ve talked about is a joint project [with Peterborough County] on George Street,” Sharpe

said. “We’ve struggled with this a few different times trying to come up with a game plan. I’d like to see our staff start talking to county staff to see if we can put something together. We should have a lot of that work done already.” “We need to look at it,” Councillor Jim Martin agreed mentioning the complaints they hear about the state of George Street which is actually a county road. “I’d like to see the county bring it up to standard and we take it over if we have

Northumberland Hearing has been proudly helping patients Make Life Sound Better for over 12 years!

News - Hastings – Just when it appeared that a plan to clean up the Hastings raceway would die, a volunteer committee has been formed to look into the feasibility of pursuing the project conceived and promoted by the Hastings Revitalization Association (HRA). The HRA’s plan was one of four successful bids to receive funding from the Hastings Environmental Group (HEG) which administers the $25,000 Ultimate Fishing Town Canada grand prize Hastings won during the World Fishing Network’s 2013 competition. The association received $10,000 from the HEG. Getting the project off the ground has been a “struggle,” admits HRA past chair Steve Roddy. Roddy was the chief advocate for the cleanup and made the presentation on behalf of the HRA during a public meeting which helped determine successful funding recipients. “I’ve really had a hard time getting this project running and people involved in it,” Roddy said at last week’s HRA meeting. “It’s more of a landowner’s project (and) ownership has always been confusing. I don’t know how to start it and I’m not getting a whole lot of interest from anybody else, landowners or (others). “Is there enough interest to move it forward or do we hand the money back over to the HEG?” he asked. The cleanup would entail taking the dead brush and “stuff that has grown in” out of the raceway and “putting in shrubbery that is pleasing to look at and is environmentally friendly so that when we look down the raceway from the bridge it looks nice.” Roddy would like tourists to be able to walk along the bridge and say, “that’s a nice little scene.” Roddy says he’s talked to some of the landowners and hoped the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 106 could “steer some of this” because they’re a major property owner. “There doesn’t seem to be a lot of enthusiasm; a lot of it is my fault, I took it on as a group and our group is so small. I don’t have the energy or time to take

this project on to do myself.” Unless there’s “some initiative from the community,” Roddy says it’s only fitting they return the money to the HEG. “We owe it to them to say what we’re doing and what we’re not doing.” HEG member Mike Metcalf was at the HRA meeting and said he was “disheartened” to learn that the project might be withdrawn. “HEG worked very hard getting that money sorted out and with the community putting their effort as well,” he said. Metcalf said he’d be willing to get involved at a committee level to look into the project’s feasibility. “I’m willing to help in

whatever way, too, and I think there are still people out there willing to help but it’s a matter of getting out there and asking.” Roddy apologized to HEG for his comments during the HRA’s February meeting which drew just two people. At that time a “disheartened” Roddy “opened up” about the project. “If we’re not going to get support we’re not going to take those projects on,” he said. With a larger attendance at their April meeting, a committee was struck to look into the raceway project. “We’ve got to do this as a group. That’s what I tried to get across,” Roddy emphasized.

Scouts will canvas for tree planting support By Bill Freeman

News - Hastings - The 1st Hastings Scouts will be canvassing door-to-door April 28 to help support their treeplanting efforts as part of the Kawartha Waterways team that will be hard at work early in May. The Hastings Scouts will join their peers in Cavan Township on May 3 with each member planting 25 trees as part of this year’s Scout Trees initiative. “With your donation you are helping the next generation of Canadians to plant the next generation of trees,” says Hastings Scout leader MJ Stevenson. “Not only are you supporting an excellent program that helps teach youth respect for nature and the importance of stopping climate change, your donation will plant trees to offset carbon.” Because Scouts Canada is a volunteer-based organization and all planting is done as part of the Scoutrees program, local donations will stay within the 1st Hastings Scouting movement with 30 per cent going to the World Brotherhood Fund and the Scoutrees program. In the early 1970s, Canadian Scouting formally undertook a national project that was then known as Trees for Canada. Even before that, in the early 1900s, the Scouting movement was partnered with the Department of Lands and Forests to replant areas in places like Marathon and the Ganaraska Forest area. It was initially a dual-

purpose campaign for reforestation and fund raising but evolved into a pledge-type campaign with a portion of the funds going to the newly created Scout Brotherhood Fund that was used to support projects in developing countries. Scouts Canada has now renamed this project Scoutrees and this coming spring 16,000 Scouts will plant another 200,000 trees bringing to over 80 million the total number of trees planted since 1972. As a national environmental program, Scoutrees was created to do a number of things including reforesting Canada and reclaim waste areas, involving youth with the outdoors and helping them to develop an awareness of conservation, providing an instructional program about conservation and forestry for the Scouting movement, to offer a beneficial outdoor program that would reinforce Scouting’s current programs and badges and to boost Scouting’s public image. Through Scoutrees the youth learn the important role trees play in helping the environment and they’re planted as windbreaks to help reduce soil erosion from wind and rain. They also provide wildlife habitat for birds and other animals. Stevenson thanks all those who support the Hastings Scouting team and says that people who were not at home when canvassers called can still make a donation by calling her at 705-696-2296.

Fieldhouse momentum grows nal determination from where [council] wants to go [with the project].” Council certainly favours the project, whether it opts for the extension is something yet to be decided. “It’s going to be a huge draw, we’ve got to get behind it and support it. But it certainly has to be affordable,” Trent Hills Mayor Hector Macmillan said. “The building has got to be multi-functional so we can do whatever we want there.” Supporters deflected what they characterized as “negativity” directed at the project which is part of the Trent Hills’ ambitious Flourish Wellness campaign. “You always hear from people that Campbellford gets everything but when something is being proposed to support Hastings all of a sudden you hear negativity,” resident Lorraine Trent Hills Community Services Officer Scott Rose (r) talks to Hastings residents during last week’s Wilson said. “Surely our municipality public meeting at the Hastings Civic Centre on the proposed multi-use fieldhouse that is planned for has researched it. Let’s go and do it up Fowlds Millennium Park. Photo: Bill Freeman right. Come on Hastings, let’s dig in and go for it.” “This is something that will be a commercial driver in Trent Hills, not just Hastings,” Deputy-mayor Bob Crate said. “We’ve got to get this thing done and get it working and start promoting it. Through taxation we support lots of Seamless Eavestroughing things, we can support this.”

“I think what they’ve got now [in the base project] is good,” she said. Galbraith’s son travels to the Spiplex in Fowlers Corners every week and she says there are youth from Havelock and Warkworth there as well. Having something similar in Hastings would draw users, she says. “I know kids will love it.” “Once it gets started people will get more excited about it,” she added. “The whole plan is going to revitalize that

whole area. I look at what they’ve done in Norwood.” The Hastings Village Marina, she notes, is within easy walking distance and with new subdivisions going up the fieldhouse will only add to the village’s appeal. “We need youth; we need young families to keep the school open, to keep the community vibrant.” Once council makes it decision AECOM will prepare detailed designs and specifications for tender.


News - Hastings - Trent Hills Mayor Hector Macmillan would like to see the proposed fieldhouse at Fowlds Millennium Park in Hastings completed by the end of the year. “We want to see it up this as soon as the community decides exactly what they want to see in the total outlay,” Mayor Macmillan said after last week’s public meeting with consultants from AECOM Canada Ltd. which provided more details about the proposed multi-functional airsupported dome structure. The base project comes with a price tag of $2,854,000. The consultants have also presented an “extended scope” proposal that adds 90 feet to the structure with sport court flooring for additional uses. The extension would add $410,000 to the total cost. “We want to get the figure nailed down so we can get it out to tender and get it up,” says Macmillan. “It’s not all about soccer; that’s certainly a major component, but it’s not all about soccer.” Mayor Macmillan says the past winter has reminded everyone that “something as simple as walking” for exercise will fit in nicely with the fieldhouse. The facility could also be used for cultural purposes, he added. But Hastings needs to support the project. “I hear people in other urban centres say if Hastings doesn’t want it [we’ll take it]. It’s going to be a draw.” “I think you’re going to get a lot more attraction than just your local population,” says consultant Jim Zimmerman. “From that you’re going to generate revenues from groups beyond the borders of Trent Hills. A lot of people east of the GTA don’t want to go into the GTA for these types of things.” Deputy-mayor Bob Crate, who also represents Hastings on council, says he has had at least a dozen people from Peterborough ask him when the fieldhouse will be open. “We’re looking at a facility that will service more than just Hastings,” Crate said. “People need to know we’re there to do business.” “I think it will be a good drawing card,” Hastings resident Kathy Galbraith said. Galbraith is not sure the municipality should opt for the extended proposal.



area with 75 additional spaces. There would also be a bus loading zone. The proposal also includes walkways, a hard surface collection and drop-off area at the entrance to the fieldhouse with landscaped green space adjacent to the fieldhouse. The existing volleyball court will be removed. They would also add another regulation-sized outdoor natural turf soccer pitch. People at the meeting also heard more about an “extended scope” design which could add 60 feet to the length of the dome with a “sport court flooring” system that would allow for multiple uses like concerts and meetings as well as recreational functions like basketball. There would be protective netting separating activities from the two sections of the dome. The extension would add $410,000 to the price tag. There’s also room at the park for a future baseball diamond and shade shelter with service connections for outdoor soccer field lighting at the new field. “We’ve got a pretty good handle on the two approaches,” consultant Ted Wilson said. “We need to confirm the overall scope of the project. Wilson said they will get their “fi-

News - Hastings - Momentum is growing for the construction of a multifunctional air-supported fieldhouse in Hastings that would become part of a burgeoning recreational hub at Fowlds Millennium Park. “I think it’s a great opportunity. I think it’s going to get lots of use from the community and surrounding area,” Hastings resident Kathy Galbraith said after last week’s public meeting which provided a more detailed look at the proposed $2,854,000 fieldhouse to be built south of the existing parking area and soccer pitches. The preferred location was narrowed down from three that were unveiled earlier by the Municipality of Trent Hills and consultants AECOM Canada Ltd. The fieldhouse will include a 30-metre by 60-meter “FIFA qualified” artificial turf soccer pitch, walking track and golf driving range with a 4,000-square-foot change-support building connected to it. The project will maintain the existing outdoor soccer pitch, mini soccer fields and children’s play structure; the skateboard park would be relocated to the west to allow for an expanded gravel parking area; the new parking lot would have 154 spaces along with an overflow parking

Rising waters plague Marmora A group of Marmora firefighters spent time on April 16 sandbagging flooded homes, including the Beaver Creek property of June Vilneff. This was their fourth of the day, and, as one firefighter said mid-afternoon, “with more to go.” The bagging operation began on Monday night, and continued throughout Tuesday, with the first call of the day on Wednesday coming in at 5:15 a.m. Photo: Judy Backus

News - Marmora - Sump pumps and sand bags have been put to good use over the past days in an attempt to alleviate the effects of the high water. A flood warning, put in place for the entire watershed by Crowe Valley Conservation Authority (CVCA), included a long list of areas experiencing flooding as of April 17. During the current situation, the authority will be manned 24 hours a day.

An update includes a pertinent message: “The CVCA urges everyone, especially children, to stay away from all dams, weirs, hydro generating plants, (and) bridges. Springtime conditions on watercourses can easily create dangerous situations causing harm or drowning accidents leading to fatalities.” Information from the municipality indicates that a number of roads have been closed

because of flooding and that the fire department had begun sandbagging operations. It noted, “If you require sand bags please contact the Marmora Fire Department 613-921-6117. In case of an emergency please contact 911.” Tim Pidduck, general manager of CVCA, commented on the situation early on April 17, saying that various sections of the watershed, including Belmont and Crowe Lakes, which

are located at its southern end, were still rising as a result of the snow melt to the north, not rain, as there had been no significant precipitation received over the past 24 to 48 hours. The upside of the situation is, he said, the fact that major tributaries, such as Beaver Creek, are starting to, or have stabilized. “The overnight trend,” he pointed out, “has indicated that Beaver Creek is dropping very slowly at this point.” The flows, measured at a gauge located on the creek, had dropped from 72 cubic metres per second on April 16 to 68 on the following morning.  Compared to previous years, Pidduck said that in terms of this watershed, the high water had exceeded the levels experienced in 2008/2009. He commented that it was the worst that either he or Water Resources Supervisor, Neil McConkey, had seen in their many years at the CVCA, but it was not the worst that had ever been recorded, mentioning that 1976 was “considerably worse.” He suggested that additional rain, “the wrong amount at the wrong time, could easily push levels higher than what they are right now … We are certainly hoping that levels and flows will continue to stabilize and start to recede over the coming days, but future forecasts could easily reverse that hope.” The flood warning has been made known to member municipalities, the media, cottage associations, and board members. The flood warning and specific conditions are posted on the CVCA web site <>.  Pidduck stressed that within the watershed, everything ultimately empties into the Crowe River, heads south, and eventually flows into the Trent River system. From there, he said, “it then flows into Lake Ontario, so we have absolutely no impact on the Belleville situation.” He also mentioned that CVCA staff had done everything possible prior to the spring freshet in order to help prepare for what they anticipated to be a heavy runoff. He noted, “We were out making stop log adjustments well in advance of the freshet. If we hadn’t done that, conditions could have been considerably worse. We have tried to mitigate the effects of flooding as much as possible … No matter what you do, Mother Nature can throw conditions our way that we have absolutely no control over and will still result in flooding.” That same morning saw a group of firefighters and volunteers filling sandbags behind the firehall. Chief Tony Brownson indicated that already 8,500 bags had been filled and distributed. Two trips to Belleville had been made to pick up tractor-trailer loads of prefilled bags. “Basically,” he said of the department’s involvement which began on Sunday night, “we’ve been working from 5:30 in the morning to 10:30 [at night] or 1 o’clock in the morning, then go home and get a couple of hours of sleep.”  Residents can either pick up sandbags at the firehall, or if needed, they can be delivered by the fire department in personal vehicles.

This is â&#x20AC;&#x153;Babyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;sâ&#x20AC;? story â&#x20AC;&#x153;Babyâ&#x20AC;? is a dilute Calico kitten that was born last October on the streets of Campbellford and managed to survive the frigid winter thanks to the kindness of a resident who provided an outdoor shelter and food. Baby and her sister Sandy are the only two of a litter of six that survived. Their mother, a Calico too, disappeared during the winter months. Baby was live trapped and has been spayed and given her rabies vaccine and now needs someone with insight, patience and a desire to give this kitten a chance at a good life. She is scared but does not bite or scratch, she just hides hoping for something good to happen.

moved to Cobourg in 1946, then Brighton in 1959. Known mainly for his ceramics, Zavi also had a passion for painting, which led to commissioning his talent to many area aficionados. The National Film Board featured Zavi twice in 1946 and in 1963 he won a gold medal at an international competition in Milan, Italy. He died in 1987. Interestingly, Zavi dug the clay for his works out of the Ottawa River Valley and, locally, in the Northumberland Hills.

Colborne PS marching toward third provincial drumline title PS was the only one in the intermediate class, earning a score of 77.5 from the three judges. Another local entry Morford’s involved in, Oak Ridge Percussion, made up of the school’s graduates now attending high school, placed second behind St. Michael’s in the premier class, with a score of 90.6 “It was their first time so they were a little bit amped up but they did quite well,” Morford said. The first performance of the year is usually the one “where you get all the jitters out.” Colborne PS is headed to Montreal this Friday to compete in the Quebec provincial championship for the first time, against high schools.

Colborne Public School’s drumline, including Noah Boughton, Matt Benyon, Shailyn Barrett, Tyler Turk (in back), Andrew Milne and Sam Hall, performed two contemporary songs, Thrift Shop and Billionaire, at the Canadian Drumline Association Eastern Ontario Regional held April 17 at the Keeler Centre.

“We’ll see how we do.” Morford said. After that Colborne will enter two more events, in Brampton and Toronto, before seeking a third provincial championship against older drumlines. “Up until last year they were doing classifications by age and now they’re doing them by ability,” Morford said. “We went from competing against other public schools and now we’re competing against high schools, so it should be very interesting to see how we do. “I’m sure they’ll be fine,” he added. “The confidence it’s going to give them is pretty cool.”

The drumline also included Cassandra Bayes. By John Campbell

News - Colborne - Colborne Public School’s two-time provincial champion drumline will be looking to garner a third title next month and it’s off to a good start with its preparations. It won at a competition held in Bowmanville and then last week hosted the Canadian Drumline Association Eastern Ontario Regional at the Keeler Centre. “It went really, really well, everything ran smoothly, everyone performed well,” said Chad Morford, a teacher at the school who’s also the Mathias Ho and St. Marcellinus place first in the concert class at the Canadian Drumline Association music co-ordinator. Jack Broumpton was one of three judges evaluating the performances of six groups competing at the Eastern Ontario Regional.

Lifestyles â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Campbellford â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Who is Campbellfordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s favourite author? The choices have been narrowed to five popular writers â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Linwood Barclay, Giles Blunt, Stewart McLean, Alice Munro and Louise Penny â&#x20AC;&#x201C; whose books are checked out more often than any other at the Campbellford Library. Now itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s up to the public to decide which of the five is number one among local readers. Vote and you could win a free book written by one of the authors, says Friends of the Campbellford Library, which has organized the contest itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s calling Campbellford Reads 2014. Unlike the CBCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Canada Reads, the intent is not to tell people which books they should be reading â&#x20AC;&#x153;but what is it people really want to read,â&#x20AC;? says Friends chair Rose-Marie Kerr. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We wanted to get some discussions going (about the libraryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most popular authors),â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all Canadian and they each have a different flavour (in their work).â&#x20AC;? To vote you must have read one book by each author. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are voting on the authorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work, not a specific book,â&#x20AC;? says Friends. Ballots can be picked up at the library and the first round of voting will finish by April 23, after which the list is shortened to three. The deadline for the second round is June 7, with the favourite writer to be announced at the Friendsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; annual library book sale a week later. The winner of a book will be drawn from votes cast. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really encouraging people to read, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the point, and to have fun discussions,â&#x20AC;? Kerr said. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also â&#x20AC;&#x153;to highlight the library and all the wonderful things that it does.â&#x20AC;?

Emma Smith wins David Andrews Memorial Award By Bill Freeman

News - Norwood - Emma Smith is a multi-sport athlete but there’s “something unique and special” about hockey, she says. The Norwood District High School Grade 12 student is this year’s recipient of the David Andrew Memorial Award and Bursary from Norwood District Minor Sports and it was fittingly received as she wrapped up her final year of midget hockey with the Cold Creek Comets, a program she joined as a bantam player after six seasons with the Nor-

wood Hornets. It took Emma two years to persuade her parents Susie and Graham to let her play hockey with her brother Brent’s senior tyke team; they relented and at the age of four she was well and truly launched into Canada’s national passion. She has now spent the last 11 years playing hockey. It’s a decision she says she’ll “never regret” and has “loved every minute of it.” Emma is one of the best badminton players in the region and has represented

NDHS at the provincial high school finals but it’s hockey that has taught her the “important lessons [she] carries with her in all aspects of her daily life.” The values of “teamwork, time management skills, following directions and working co-operatively with others to achieve a common goal” all stem from

her experiences playing hockey. As a Norwood Hornets player she won an OMHA novice title and was part of the Atom A team which reached the OMHA final. Her successes on the ice have grown since switching to girls hockey winning a bronze medal at the Ontario Women’s Hockey Association

(OWHA) provincial championships; the midget Comets have won three straight gold medals at the Lower Lakes Female Hockey League championship weekend. Emma says hockey has always made her feel “part of

Campbellford to host provincial bantam softball championship By John Campbell

Sports – Campbellford – The town will get to host an Ontario Amateur Softball Association (OASA) provincial championship after all. Gary Torrance, manager of the bantam Campbellford Cougars, was turned down two years ago because the town has only ball field suitable for tournament play and the OASA requires two. Undaunted, he decided to apply once more late last year, to “give it a try to see what happens” in case “they didn’t have anybody” lined up, he said. Last week he got word Campbellford would be the site of this year’s bantam championships Aug. 2-3, which means the Cougars, who won the provincial title last year, won’t have to leave home to defend their reign. The team will still have to finish in the top eight at the elimination tournaEmma Smith is presented with the David Andrew Memorial Award by Norment July 11-13 when all the province’s wood District Minor Sports president Rob Buchanan during the associabantam teams will gather at Toanche. tion’s annual awards afternoon.

Qualifying for the A championships and hosting them in Campbellford shouldn’t be a problem, said Torrance, who has his eyes set on the team advancing to the Canadian championships. Some of the games will be played at Stirling the first day of the tournament to accommodate the eight teams that will be in Campbellford for the provincial championship. Torrance’s son Rod is the coach of the Cougars, and he’s assisted by Brian Seymour and Craig Petherick. The team, sponsored by OPG, is largely the same one that started playing together as mites nine years ago and moved up through the ranks of squirt, peewee and then bantam. Five of the 12 players reside in Trent Hills, the others come from Tweed, Stirling, Centre Hastings and Belleville. The team of young teenagers play in the Stirling league against adults and do well against their older competition, finishing tied for second last year.

the community.” The volunteer work she does in the community is a reflection of the mentoring and “positive influence” she has received from the hockey coaches she has had at all levels throughout her career.

Hockey awards handed out

Campbellford Minor Hockey Association presented several awards at its appreciation dinner for coaches and volunteers. Bryce Ellis, on the left, presented Doug Mathew his Coach of the Year award for having led the midget team to the provincial CC final. Other recipients were: Joanne Forestell, manager of the year; Terry Carleton, Cathy Newton, CMHA life member awards; Randy Petherick, Jody Greenly, Pete Crothers, Owen Brunton, and John Foster, Co-operators Cup team management award; Melissa Fleming, the Jim Crothers Grassroots Hockey award, and; Wayne Kerr, CMHA trainer of the year.

Packed house for Havelock gun show By Bill Freeman

News - Havelock - The Royal Canadian Legion Branch 389 in Havelock got a nice boost from gun and military memorabilia collectors and enthusiasts who ďŹ&#x201A;ocked to town from around the province Saturday. The gun and military show organized by Don Martin and held in the Branchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s upstairs hall drew a large crowd and 30 vendor tables with all of the proceeds going to Branch 389. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re quite happy for the turnout,â&#x20AC;? said Martin, a dedicated collector for over 50 years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was deďŹ nitely packed; they were lined up at the door and you could hardly get a parking spot. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re very pleased.â&#x20AC;? Vendors from as far away as Sudbury, Niagara Falls and Montreal were at the Havelock show which followed a closely observed ďŹ rearms protocol that was strictly enforced. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All the money is being donated to our Legion,â&#x20AC;? said Martin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We think about the veterans that didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come back and what we can do for the people who are still here to help our Legion. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s part of our history and we have some new veterans now and we have to show them the same encouragement too and to get as many other people as we can interested to support our Legions.â&#x20AC;? Martin is a long-time and keen collector and student of the famous line of Winchester riďŹ&#x201A;es. Among those in his display were three model 65 Winchesters; there were only 5,107 manufactured and they were made in three calibres, Martin explained. Those three calibres were the 218-B, 2530 and 32-30. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got them all,â&#x20AC;? he added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re almost impossible to ďŹ nd. I got lucky.â&#x20AC;? One of the Model 65â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, the Trapper 25-35, was made in 1906. The craftsmanship, Martin says, is â&#x20AC;&#x153;extraordinary.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been collecting since I was 15 or 16 and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be 70 next year. I just like them; theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a well-made gun. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re very desirable.â&#x20AC;? Winchester is no longer in business and is now known as U.S. Repeating Arms Company, the current name of the Winchester Repeating Arms Company. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got some of the original stuff from New Haven, Connecticut,â&#x20AC;?

Instructor comes clean on making soap

By Sue Dickens

News - Warkworth - What do beeswax, lamb fat and lye crystals have in common? These are just some of the ingredients used during a workshop taught by Susan Chan, who came clean on the art of making soap, at one of several workshops offered by The Abundance Project. The series began with The Amazing Vegetable Race and wrapped up

with a Raised Bed and Container Gardening workshop. The Abundance Project is a community based organization focused on promoting healthy eating, sustainable growing practices and food preparation skills under the guidance of coordinator David Lyon. Soap making was so popular that spaces in two subsequent workshops were filled quickly by interested residents.

Chan, who is project manager of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Farms at Work,â&#x20AC;? is a consultant in agriculture and pollination biology â&#x20AC;Ś and she makes her own soap in her spare time. Chan agreed to take her teaching skills and interest in soap making to the community of Warkworth. The Abundance Project relies on a network of volunteers, like Chan, to plan and deliver a wide variety of food related workshops and projects.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m an educator and enjoy working with people,â&#x20AC;? she told the Trent Hills Independent. Because Chan makes her own soap she wanted to share those skills with others. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Soap making is kind of like making bread, you mix ingredients and have to wait â&#x20AC;Ś although the active part is actually not very long,â&#x20AC;? she commented. She shared with workshop participants Please see â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cleanâ&#x20AC;? on page B2

Something fishy is happening at the Tweed Library Entertainment - Mystery writer Hilary MacLeod will be the featured speaker at the Tweed Public Library on Thursday, May 1, at 7 p.m. She appears as part of the library’s Writers Series, sponsored by the Friends of the Tweed Library. MacLeod, a Prince Edward County resident, is the author of the popular Shores Mystery series. Her first novel, Revenge of the Lobster Lover, won the CBC’s Bookie Award in 2011. Three other mysteries followed, Mind Over Mussels, All Is Clam and Something Fishy.

The novels are set on a small fictional island on the Atlantic coast and feature quirky and eccentric characters. MacLeod, who summers on Prince Edward Island where she got her inspiration for the setting of the novels, is a former CBC radio morning show host and professor at the School of Media Studies at Loyalist College in Belleville.

what she referred to as “a foolproof soap recipe.” “The recipe I was giving out at the workshop has never failed me,” she said. “This is the way it has always been made on farms for generations,” she added. Chan pointed out that homemade soap is cheaper than store bought soap “in the long run.” “Sixty dollars will get you 50 bars of soap,” she said. “This is a very desirable soap, not soft, not hard and very good on your skin,” she added. Chan said making soap can

be a lot of fun as the traditions of previous generations get passed along as people “get back to the basics.” Workshop participants agreed. “I have never done this before and I will try it at home after. I am definitely interested in using natural products,” said Kim Watson of Warkworth. Laura Easter, who has a dairy farm near Warkworth, was among the eight women who took part in one of the recent workshops. “I tried making soap before and failed so I came for some

critiquing,” she said with a grin. “We have a farm and plenty of fat available, one of the key ingredients to making soap. It’s making use of our resources,” she added. Chan, who does her own canning and preserving and makes her own hand cream and lip balm as well, said, “I like to share this knowledge with other people. It’s very satisfying.” For more information about The Abundance Project go to <http://warkworthabundance. ca/>.

said alluding to the evolving company’s historic roots which began in the mid-1850s in Connecticut. “It’s top-quality stuff.” Two of Martin’s rifles are engraved by Pauline Muerrle, the only woman to work as a custom shop engraver for Winchester.

Another of his rifles is engraved by Nick Kusmit who did custom work for Clark Gable and Roy Rogers. The rifles, he says, are very hard to track down. “There was a lot of leg work.” Shows like the one in Havelock (another is scheduled for September 6) and others around

the province allow collectors like Martin to do a little networking and share information and knowledge of collections. “Some people think we’re all bad because we’re gun owners; we’re not. It’s harder to get a firearms licence than it is to get a passport. It’s part of our history.”

Auto show returning to the fairgrounds News - Stirling - With stakes in the ground at the fairgrounds to mark vendor areas, organizers of Stirling’s Annual Automotive and Antique Flea Market are left with little to do but prepare for the crowds. And the crowds, says show Co-Chair Jeremy Solmes, could reach 10,000. “It’s always busy,” he says of the springtime ritual that has seen significant growth and changes over the years and is now administered by the Stirling Agricultural Society. The annual event now regularly sees crowds of 5,000 or more on opening day, Solmes says and, scheduled for May 3 and 4 at the fairgrounds and recreation

centre, this year’s edition will again feature more than 500 vendors offering a range of antique cars, parts and automobilia. But Solmes, reflecting on the early days and the show’s humble beginnings more than 40 years ago in a Spring Brook driveway, has always been a supporter. “My grandfather [Roy Solmes] started it,” notes Solmes, adding, “that’s why I got involved.” And he admits there are plenty of other auto enthusiasts in the area who flock to Stirling every year to check out the hardware. Solmes explains that vendors are primarily related to the automotive industry, selling parts and vehicle related products, but typically there are also a

range of toys, souvenirs and clothing on offer as well. “There really is something for everyone,” says Solmes, noting for many the show has become a family event. Not only are there plenty of vintage vehicles to admire, parts and components for nearly every make and model, and experts in all areas mechanical, visitors can often find that much-wanted treasure that has eluded them for years. Business is usually brisk on opening day, Solmes says, with many enthusiasts arriving early. Undoubtedly, he says, traffic through the village will be heavy and some delays can be expected in and around the fairgrounds. Billed as the Largest Flea Market East of Toronto, the Stirling Agricultural Society event offers both indoor and outdoor

Entertainment - Rednersville - Organizers of the first Rednersville International Film Festival (RIFF) are gearing up for the launch of what Active Arts Studio owner Jeff Keary promises will be an unforgettable experience for music and film fans. “This is a unique event for several reasons,” says Keary, who lives with his wife Tracey in a converted church on Barley Road that regularly doubles as a concert hall, recording studio, art gallery and theatre, where a variety of performances and exhibitions have been hosted in recent months. The RIFF begins this Friday with the weekend screenings focusing on the work of director Martin Scorsese, including The Band’s The Last Waltz, and will feature special guest and the film’s original sound editor Rob Fraboni at the opening. “We have a unique stellar sound system from Tenor Audio and Tetra,” explains Keary, “[and] these companies do not have dealers or showrooms … There is literally nowhere in the world that this combination of amp and loudspeaker can be heard.” And for only the third time ever, he adds, Fraboni’s “unique, personal, definitive and publicly unavailable twochannel audio version” will be presented. “Rob has devised a new technology called RealFeel and all the movies we are showing have been treated with this system which is designed to improve sound quality and thereby picture quality too,” Keary says. Friday’s opening will be followed by Martin Scorsese Day on Saturday which will include the films Mean Streets, Taxi Driver and a second screening of The Last Waltz. There will be other events scheduled through the week including opportunities for private listening sessions where visitors will have a chance to hear their favourite material, he says. On May 3, more music is on the RIFF schedule

vendors and two full days of automotive indulgence. And while there has been recent flooding, Solmes adds, the weather has been more co-operative recently as well. There were a few concerns about water levels this spring, he notes, but the fairgrounds have dried up significantly in recent days and the site is expected to be in ideal condition for the show. Doors open to the public at 7 a.m. on both Saturday and Sunday (May 3 and 4) with an admission price of $5 per person. Parking is free as well as admission for children under 12.

The Good Earth: The right plant?

Dan Clost

Lifestyles - Welcome spring! Welcome gardeners back to the nursery! It is a pleasure to see you all cluttering up the place again. After all, this is what we’re all about. By now, you will have

thumb-eared every plant guide and seed catalogue, memorised whole pages of whatever gardening bible you follow and you’re ready to get going. I’m going to attempt to slow you down just a titch; please don’t trample me in the mad rush to get this year’s perfect plant before anyone else. Is it, indeed, the perfect plant? Let’s go over a few discussion points before you plop three of them on the nursery wagon. Here is a realism; although some might read a titch of cynicism in this statement, I assure you there is none: all gardens are artificial constructs, even the most carefully created “natural”

plot. This should be seen as a freedom statement; in other words, since it is something you are creating, you have no constraints beyond the practical. Practical, in this sense, deals with the plant’s ability to live in its new environment. In our nursery and in all of the other nurseries and garden centres, even those that magically sprout atop asphalt, we sell plants that we know will grow in your garden. (Caveat: as long as we know where that garden is. For example, a big leafed hydrangea might be rated to Canadian Winter Hardiness Zone 6. If you’re down in the County

you have no worries. If you’re in the Quinte area, you need to provide your plant with some winter mulch to protect the crown. If you’re up in Tweed, you’ve already skipped to the next paragraph.) So, some plants may require a bit of special attention; some will thrive on benign neglect. It is not in our interest, or yours, for us to stock plants that aren’t going to survive and, indeed, thrive. Let’s assume that the plant you have chosen will do very well on your estate.

News - Warkworth - There are still a few spaces left to sign up for Marc L. Gagnon’s two-day watercolour workshop. He is returning to Warkworth to teach after adjudicating the Warkworth Maple Syrup Festival Art Show and doing a free demo. The workshop called “Abstracting the Landscape” will showcase his

watercolour techniques and he will be teaching participants how it is done. Trained as an architect, and later discovering art, he successfully combined his love of architecture and painting to create dramatic works in watercolour and acrylics. He has also been a juror for various exhibitions. Gagnon teaches water media painting at venues throughout Ontario and in his home gallery at Newcastle. He was president of The Canadian Society of Painters in Watercolour from 2005 until 2007, and has shown in major exhibitions. He is a full time watercolour and acrylic painter and holds degrees in Environmental Studies and Architecture, from the University of Waterloo. He practised architecture for over 25 years. “I gain my strongest inspiration from both manmade structures and the natural environment. I begin

the creative process by trying to understand what I feel about a subject and why,” he stated. “My sketch book is my greatest tool. Sketching, broad strokes and loose colour mixing, scratching with big brushes, rubbing with a rag, and scraping with a knife all work to pull the ideas together.” The announcement of the upcoming workshop was made by Spirit of the Hills Northumberland Arts Association which is active in the area and brings juried shows and sales here along with featured artists such as Gagnon. The workshop will be held Saturday, May 3, and Sunday, May 4, at Warkworth Town Hall Centre for The Arts. To register go to <www.> or call 705-924-9294.

apples even if you’re buying a cherry tree. There is a price and then there is a value attendant to that price. When comparison shopping and making it a given that the plant is healthy, check out the size of both plant and container. Ask about a warranty. Some outlets have none (don’t buy it), but most have from one to three years and, if they’re part of the Myke program, up to five years. Another factor to consider is the quality of the store staff. Can they give you a healthy plant, warranty, related products and accurate advice? The second and this is my best advice aka Dan’s rule number two: buy the smallest plant you can afford. You might have the dollars to buy a 300 cm (10’) Colorado Spruce tree but if you’re living in area where the soil is less than a foot deep, you will have to spend a lot of extra money to truck in extra soil in which to plant it. Even then, longterm survival is not a given. However, if you select a 150 cm (5’), it will get along quite nicely and in 5 years or so surpass the height of the original 300 cm tree and all of its replacements. The same goes for almost every other plant, especially perennials. So it’s a combination of discretionary finances, patience and satisfaction/gratification. Some of us are not interested in planting for posterity; we want to look at a big tree, now. Some of us can relax under the shade of a tree planted by a generation long passed on whilst looking at a new whip we just slipped into the fencerow. Both perspectives are valid. One very common oversight is not knowing the mature size of the plant. Probably the number one plant where this can be seen is the weeping mulberry (Morus alba ‘Pendula’.) There is one on King Street in Trenton that is 18’ tall and 10’ wide and there is one on the south side of Old Highway 2 west of Bayside that is half again as large. There are dozens in Belleville and Trenton, in the new subdivisions planted less than 4’ away from a wall, fence, driveway, etc. Gentle Reader, there is no ‘wrong’ plant but not all plants are ‘right.’

The Netherlandsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; fascinating Seal Rescue and Rehabilitation Centre

saw a humungous mountain of ďŹ shing nets piled up and this display is left here as a kind of statue and reminder of their danger to the seal population which has dramatically decreased in this area.

The other major problem faced by the young seal pup is the development of lung worms, a very common disease. If found in time, these sick seal pups can be nursed back to health and the good news is that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll never have to deal with it again, for itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a disease only found in the very young. I found that there were three basic steps in the process of rehabilitation here. The young pups were placed in quarantine/intensive care, at ďŹ rst, and force-fed. They were then moved to a small pool area, where they continued to recover and receive medication and did a bit of swimming. The ďŹ nal stage of captivity took place in a larger pool, where they were no longer in need of medication, but they were now merely fattening up and recovering further strength before being declared cured and set free. Lenie tâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Hart began a seal refuge here, right in her own backyard back in 1971 and it has now expanded into the present impressive Seal Rescue and Rehabilitation Centre, arguably the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best seal hospital. This facility, with its research lab and dedicated staff, is totally dependent on donations (being a â&#x20AC;&#x153;seal saverâ&#x20AC;? costs just a few Euros per month), and it attracts many interns and volunteers, including biologists and veterinarians, from all over the world. It also attracts many groups who hope to set up a similar centre elsewhere, including visitors from Canada. While I was there, there wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a contingency from Canada, but there was a young Korean girl whom I met who was checking out the facility, and she was hoping to eventually re-introduce sea lions back at home. Many tourists also visit this facility (eight Euros per adult: ďŹ ve Euros per child; free for infants under 3), but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a charity rather than simply a tourist attraction. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very educational, and children particularly like to watch the healthier seal pups at play in the larger pool just before they are re-released. However, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no cuddling here for these are wild creatures that are going to be returned to the sea! As I walked around the grounds, I

News - Trent Hills - Northumberland Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) received a complaint of a fraud involving the sale of puppies on Kijiji. The Trent Hills resident viewed a puppy for sale on the popular buy and sell web site and made inquiries to a female via a cell phone number provided in the advertisement. Arrangements were made to have the puppy shipped from Quebec to the Toronto area using air freight and monies were paid via an email transfer. The buyer travelled to Pearson International Airport in Toronto to pick up the puppy only to find that there was no such shipment. All subsequent efforts to contact the seller proved futile. The Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre states: “In order to avoid these types of scams, remember the following general words of advice: • Know who you are dealing with: independently confirm your seller’s name, street address, and telephone number. • Resist pressure to “act now.” If an offer sounds too good to be true, it usually is. • If the buyer wants to use a service you have not heard of, be sure to check it out to be sure it is reliable: check its web site, call its customer service hotline, and read its terms of agreement and privacy policy. If you do not feel comfortable with the service, do not use it. • Contact your local office of the Better Business Bureau and The Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre toll free at 1-888-495-8501. If you or someone you know suspect they’ve been a victim of fraud, contact your local police service or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).

50th Wedding Anniversary


Saturday, May 10, 2014

Born November 1, 1923, in Godziesze, Poland, he is the son of the late Jean (John) Walas and the late Antonina (Kusz). His earliest recollections of a long and difficult life were of a farm in Bregy, France, where his parents worked. Following the sudden death of his mother, the family decided to return to Poland. Even at a young age, Tony realized although there was nothing for him in France, there was far less opportunity in Poland. He remained in France and began his colourful journey around the world. As a young teenager he sailed as a merchant marine from Saint-Nazaire, France across the Mediterranean, with vivid stories of Tangier, Algiers, Alexandria, Cyprus, Beirut, Haifa, Bahrain, Karachi, Calcutta and Bombay, spending about 15 years at sea. Like so many, he understood what is was to be poor and what it was to go hungry. Like so many, he had no formal education. Like so many, he understood hard work and the value of a dollar. “Five dollars is nothing until the day you don’t have it; then it’s a mile long” – Tony Walas He arrived in Halifax in 1952 with a suitcase and later moved to Toronto, where he met and married Doreen. Never a stranger to hard physical work, he began his life in Toronto with Cliffside Pipelayers and Victor Heating. A seasonal cottager’s of Presqu’ile Point since the early 1960’s, the family moved to Brighton in 1972. He loved Brighton and all it had to offer. In Brighton became a respected homebuilder with a career spanning approximately 30 years. He was proud of his accomplishments in Brighton. He felt that Brighton had been good to him and in turn he had been good to Brighton. He loved the water; he was an avid sailor, and a charter member of the Presqu’ile Yacht Club. Fiercely independent, he lived on his own, still had his license, operated his backhoe until last year, and sailed until the year before that; Tony had only just returned from his annual 3 month hiatus in Cuba. Predeceased by his wife Doreen (Dodd) 2009, he is survived by his daughter Debbie and her husband Jim Logeman; and sons, Mark Walas and his wife Linda and Matthew Walas and his wife Jodi and their families, all of Brighton. The family would like to thank to Dr. MacIntyre and staff in Brighton and Trenton Memorial Hospital Emergency Staff for their care and compassion. The family will receive friends at the Brighton Funeral Home, 130 Main St., Brighton on Thursday evening from 6-8pm. A private interment will take place at Salem Cemetery.
